  Eagles | Jordan Howard terms    Fri Apr 16, 09:51 AM

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard's one-year deal has a $990,000 base salary and no guaranteed money. Howard's deal is a veteran salary benefit deal that counts $850,000 against the salary cap.

Footballguys view: Howard is with the Eagles to provide veteran depth and pick up some short-yardage and goal-line situations. His role will be very limited and there's not much fantasy value there.

  Cardinals | Arizona signs four players    Thu Apr 15, 04:52 PM

Free-agent WR Andre Baccellia (Patriots), DE Ryan Bee (Washington), RB Tavien Feaster (Lions) and LB Jamell Garcia-Williams (49ers) signed with the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, April 15. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Feaster is a big-bodied back who bounced around to three different teams in 2020 after going undrafted out of South Carolina (Clemson transfer). He'll try to work into the mix behind Chase Edmonds and newly-signed James Conner and is a long-shot to make the final roster. If he impresses in the desert, then perhaps a spot on the practice squad will be where he lands.

  Falcons | Ito Smith released    Thu Apr 15, 01:31 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Ito Smith on Thursday, April 15, was released by the team.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are going to have a new-look running back room in 2021. Mike Davis should be the lead back and they just signed WR Cordarrelle Patterson who can be used as a runner or receiver. We expect them to be interested in running backs in the 2021 NFL draft.

  Falcons | Cordarrelle Patterson signs with Atlanta    Thu Apr 15, 11:26 AM

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Bears) agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, April 15.

Footballguys view: The Falcons get veteran depth added to the wide receiver room here. Patterson is a gadget player on offense who can work as a runner or receiver. Most of his value comes on special teams.

Free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson (Bears) is visiting with the Atlanta Falcons on Wednesday, April 14, and the expectation is both sides will agree on a contract soon, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: Patterson would give the Falcons another veteran presence in the locker room at the wide receiver position. Most of his value would come on special teams and as a gadget player on offense.

  NFL | Najee Harris' ankle all good    Wed Apr 14, 09:56 AM

Alabama RB Najee Harris (ankle) checked out well, and his ankle drew no red flags that should affect his draft stock.

Footballguys view: Harris is a powerful and versatile back who can lead a backfield in the NFL. He caught 80 passes during his college career and can play on all three downs. Harris is not a big-play threat but does a good job of grinding down an opponent as the game goes on. We should see Harris go in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft.

  Buccaneers | Giovani Bernard financials    Tue Apr 13, 03:53 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Giovani Bernard (Bengals) signed a one-year contract worth $1.075 million - including a $137,500 signing bonus - with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, April 12.

Footballguys view: Bernard is a fine signing for the Buccaneers. He'll work into the backfield with Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones, likely as the primary pass-catching back. His addition is bad news for Ke'Shawn Vaughn.

  NFL | Israel Tucker drawing attention from multiple teams    Tue Apr 13, 02:01 PM

Louisiana Tech RB Israel Tucker performed well at his pro day on March 18 - including a 40-yard dash time of 4.46 seconds, a vertical jump of 38.5 inches and a broad jump of 10-foot-3 - and is reportedly receiving a lot of interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Tucker is a late-round prospect that teams may be able to add as a priority free agent after the draft. He's got a compact build and makes moves at full speed without breaking his stride. Tucker can be used as a receiver out of the backfield and does a good job of looking passes into his hands. In super deep dynasty formats we'll keep an eye on him.

  Cardinals | James Conner lands with Cards    Tue Apr 13, 11:40 AM

Free-agent RB James Conner (Steelers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, April 13. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Conner will now work into the mix with Chase Edmonds. When healthy, Conner can be a big-bodied back to do some work inside the tackle. Edmonds should still be the primary back and catch more passes with Conner backing him up and shouldering some of the load.

  NFL | Potential landing spots for Todd Gurley?    Mon Apr 12, 10:48 PM

Free-agent RB Todd Gurley (Falcons) could be of interest to the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers or Kansas City Chiefs, in the opinion of James Fragoza of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Gurley is not the player he used to be but he's still got value to a team in search of veteran depth at the position. The interest is there but there may not be a rush to sign him.

Free-agent RB Giovani Bernard (Bengals) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, April 12, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bernard is a player who can fit in nicely with the Buccaneers offense. Most will highlight his ability as a receiving back - and for good reason - but Bernard can produce more as a runner than some think. He will work into the mix with Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones.

  Bears | Chicago talks with Pooka Williams    Sun Apr 11, 08:30 PM

Kansas RB Pooka Williams met with the Chicago Bears at the Kansas Pro Day.

Footballguys view: Williams is a smaller back with explosive playmaking ability...kind of like Tarik Cohen. He makes defenders look silly and can create space for himself with quickness and agility. Williams is likely to be a late-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft and a scatback at the pro level.

  49ers | Niners targeting Pooka Williams?    Sun Apr 11, 08:26 PM

Kansas RB Pooka Williams met with the San Francisco 49ers at the Kansas Pro Day, and the 49ers are 'really dialed into Williams,' according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Williams is a smaller back with explosive playmaking ability...kind of like Tarik Cohen. He makes defenders look silly and can create space for himself with quickness and agility. Williams is likely to be a late-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft and a scatback at the pro level.

  Ravens | Big expectations for J.K. Dobbins?    Fri Apr 9, 10:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins is slated for a 'very big role' in the offense in 2021, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com, and Hensley expects 1,100 rushing and double-digit touchdowns out of Dobbins.

Footballguys view: Dobbins could easily finish 2021 as a RB1 for Fantasy GMs. He should cross the 1,000-yard line as a runner, and it would make sense if the Ravens threw more passes his way. Dobbins has a current ADP of RB19 (3.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with career lows in rushing yards per game (65.3), yards per carry (4.0) and total touchdowns (eight) during the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: Elliott's numbers should be better with Dak Prescott back under center. Without Prescott, defenses could just tee off on Elliott and the Cowboys ground game. Elliott has a current ADP of RB8 (1.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Jordan Howard returning to Philly    Wed Apr 7, 05:20 PM

Free-agent RB Jordan Howard (Eagles) is re-signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year contract, according to a source Wednesday, April 7. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Howard is a big-bodied power back with a clearly-defined role. The staff is new with the Eagles, but it's not like Howard is going to be used any differently. If he makes the 53-man roster, Howard will get short-yardage work with some goal-line carries mixed in.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard released    Wed Apr 7, 11:01 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard requested and received his release Wednesday, April 7.

Footballguys view: This move saves the Bengals $4.2 million in cap space and now Bernard gets to entertain offers from any team out there. He's been a reserve and a pass-catching specialist for most of his career, but Bernard could be more productive as a runner than some think. Before his release, there were reports that multiple teams called the Bengals to see about trading for the veteran back. It might not take long for Bernard to find a new home.

  Raiders | Kenyan Drake's versatility to be highlighted    Tue Apr 6, 02:51 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake expects 'to be used in a multitude of ways' and isn't overly concerned about being a starter, according to comments he recently made to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.'Well, with my abilities, just being a starter ... isn't something that is a high priority, in terms of being out there for however many plays. What Coach (Jon) Gruden said (in) how he was going to use me was just being on the field in a multitude of ways - playing receiver, playing running back. ... Just having the ability to kind of use my versatility as a weapon in the open field is something that really spoke to me. And to kind of share that role with Josh, and him being obviously such a capable back, I feel like it spells success for this team,' Drake said.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are likely to line up Drake all over the formation. Josh Jacobs will be the primary ball-carrier, but Drake could mix in as a change-of-pace runner, a receiver out of the backfield and he could also line up in the slot. If used correctly, Drake could have flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in 2021.

  Jets | Gang Green eyeing two running backs    Sun Apr 4, 08:37 PM

Virginia Tech RB Khalil Herbert and North Carolina RB Michael Carter are two players the New York Jets are 'high on' in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.

Footballguys view: Herbert and Carter flashed earlier this year at the Senior Bowl. We see Herbert as a mid-round sleeper who can do it all. He's well-rounded as a runner and receiver out of the backfield with fluid skills when the ball is in his hands. Carter is a big-play waiting to happen type of back. He's got speed, juice and electricity as a runner and is a decent receiver. However, his pass protection skills leave a lot to be desired.

  Dolphins | Myles Gaskin should have solid role    Sun Apr 4, 05:00 PM

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin likely will be the starting running back or No. 2 running back in 2021 depending on if the team selects a running back early in the draft.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins should be in the market for an upgrade at the position. There are several running backs in the early rounds (Day 1, Day 2) that could be added and take over the position. Gaskin is a good reserve back who can work as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. He's a flex-value play for Fantasy GMs in PPR formats.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead on the mend    Fri Apr 2, 09:15 PM

Free-agent RB Rex Burkhead (Patriots) has begun sprinting and said he is 'progressing everyday' from knee surgery that he underwent in December.

Footballguys view: There's no telling when Burkhead is going to get signed by a team. With James White returning to the Patriots it seems unlikely Burkhead would be back in New England. He may have to wait until training camp or perhaps even the start of the regular season before finding a new team.

  Jets | No explosion from La'Mical Perine    Thu Apr 1, 10:47 PM

New York Jets RB La'Mical Perine averaged 3.6 yards per carry in 2020, rushing for 15-plus yards on one of his 64 attempts.

Footballguys view: The Jets running attack didn't scare anyone, and Perine wasn't productive when he got a chance to play. The team added Tevin Coleman this offseason and he'll be in the mix to be the lead back. We expect them to address the position in the draft as well. Perine should not have much of a role with the Jets on offense.

Free-agent RB Elijah McGuire (Chiefs) and DT Jarran Reed (Seahawks) signed undisclosed contracts with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, March 31.

Footballguys view: McGuire is a decent all-purpose back who can thrive in space as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. With Damien Williams moving on (to the Bears), the team is adding more depth in the running back room. McGuire is no lock for the 53-man roster and will try to earn his spot with the team in training camp.

  Buccaneers | Ke'Shawn Vaughn pegged for big year?    Wed Mar 31, 08:54 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn is pegged to have a breakout year, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'Those guys are all here and know what the system is and the best players are going to play,' Arians said. 'Obviously we have two really, really good ones at that position and I really like Ke'Shawn Vaughn. I think that with an offseason he's going to have a breakout year also. All of those roles will be defined by the time that we get to the last week of the preseason.'

Footballguys view: How does he breakout with Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones still in front of him on the depth chart? Vaughn is a player we liked coming out of Vanderbilt but this landing spot was bad for his fantasy value. However, we are still holding and/or scooping him up in dynasty formats with an eye on the future when the backfield could be his.

  NFL | Trey Sermon shows well at pro day    Tue Mar 30, 04:57 PM

Ohio State RB Trey Sermon checked in at 6-foot and 215 pounds with 9 3/8-inch hands at his pro day Tuesday, March 30. Sermon ran unofficial times of 4.6 and 4.57 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 4.28 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.83 in the three-cone. He also recorded a vertical jump of 37 inches and a broad jump of 10-foot-5.

Footballguys view: Sermon is not a fast back, he never was for two different schools (Oklahoma, Ohio State). However, he has great contact balance and is naturally instinctive for the position. Sermon can plug away at a defense and can be a starter in the NFL. He wasn't used much as a receiver in college, so Sermon may only be a one-speed three-down back in the pros.

  Buccaneers | Open competition at RB for Tampa Bay    Tue Mar 30, 03:25 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette are expected to battle it out for the starting running back job in 2021, according to comments made by head coach Bruce Arians on Tuesday, March 30.'It's a new football team. Last year's team won the Super Bowl, this year's team hasn't done (anything). Starting positions will be defined in practice,' Arians told Pewter Report.

Footballguys view: Fournette did a good job last year when called upon and so did Jones. They'll be working in a RBBC once again, and this could be the dreaded 'hot hand' approach. That's great for the Buccaneers as they can make a decision in game to go with the hotter back. That's bad news for Fantasy GMs as lineups have to be set before the start of the game.

  Steelers | Kalen Ballage signs with Steelers    Tue Mar 30, 11:27 AM

Free-agent RB Kalen Ballage (Chargers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, March 30.

Footballguys view: Ballage flashed a bit during his brief time with the Chargers. He is a big back but he's not a bruiser. Instead, Ballage can catch passes out of the backfield and has some smoothness to his game after the catch. He'll work to get into the mix with Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland and Jaylen Samuels.

  NFL | Najee Harris won't run 40    Tue Mar 30, 09:20 AM

Alabama RB Najee Harris (ankle) won't run the 40-yard dash when he goes through drills at Alabama's second pro day.

Footballguys view: He was supposed to participate at the Senior Bowl earlier this year but did not due to this ankle injury. Now, he won't run the 40 as he continues to recover. Harris hasn't had the required time to recover from his late-season ankle injury yet.

  NFL | Michael Carter pro day results    Mon Mar 29, 11:44 PM

University of North Carolina RB Michael Carter checked in at 5-foot-9 and 184 pounds at his pro day Monday, March 29. Carter ran the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.57 seconds and the three-cone in 6.9 seconds. He also recorded a 35.5-inch vertical jump and benched 225 pounds 13 times.

Footballguys view: Carter has gotten a lot of attention in the pre-draft process. He looked sharp as a runner and receiver on film, and he backed that up with his performance during the week of practice at the Senior Bowl. Pass protection is an issue he'll need to improve on if he wants to see the field a lot in the NFL. Carter should be a Day 2 pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

  NFL | Javonte Williams runs at Pro Day    Mon Mar 29, 04:37 PM

North Carolina RB Javonte Williams posted an unofficial time of 4.55 seconds in the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day Monday, March 29. He also posted an unofficial time of 4.09 seconds in the short shuttle and a 36-inch vertical jump.

Footballguys view: Williams is one of the top backs in this class. He broke 75 tackles in 2020, leading the nation in that category. He runs with great balance and vision for the position. While his workout numbers may not "wow" some, Williams tape is what matters most. We should see him go off the board in the early second round of the 2021 NFL draft.

  Jaguars | James Robinson to stay busy?    Fri Mar 26, 10:55 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson could 'take a step forward from where he was a year ago,' general manager Trent Baalke said.

Footballguys view: Robinson is going to get a large workload and could see better boxes from the defense as he'll have a legit quarterback under center. Jacksonville should take QB Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) with the no.1 overall pick and the rookie is a generational talent. A better passing game will mean lighter boxes for Robinson which could lead to more production. What he did as a rookie in 2020 is just the tip of the iceberg and Robinson is a RB1 who should be a late first-round pick or early second-round pick in fantasy drafts (current ADP is 2.04 in 12-team PPR leagues).

Free-agent RB Leonard Fournette (Buccaneers) agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, March 26.

Footballguys view: This is bad news for Ronald Jones, who was looking at having the backfield mostly to himself if Fournette signed elsewhere. Fournette could make this more of a committee than it was last year, or even be the more valuable fantasy back, but it's still disappointing considering that there are starting jobs for the Steelers and Jets still open.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake said he was told he would be used in a 'multitude' of ways in the offense, including lining up at wide receiver.

Footballguys view: All three are likely to be first-round picks in the 2021 NFL draft. Waddle and Smith may be top-10 draft picks. Harris is arguably the best running back in this class and could be quite fantasy relevant depending on landing spot.

  Bills | Matt Breida officially joins Bills    Thu Mar 25, 04:13 PM

Free-agent RB Matt Breida (Dolphins) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills Thursday, March 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Breida joins a jam-packed Bills backfield. He'll work into the mix behind Zack Moss and Devin Singletary, likely working as a speed option and receiver out of the backfield. Don't expect Breida to have much fantasy value unless injuries strike the guys above him on the depth chart.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard has been inquired about in calls from 'multiple teams,' per a source Thursday, March 25. And unless he receives a restructured contract, Bernard could soon be dealt.

Footballguys view: We'd like to see Bernard get a fresh start with a new team. There's always been more there with his game, but he's worked mostly as a reserve behind Joe Mixon with the Bengals. We'll see if a team makes a move for him and what kind of role he'd be stepping into with a new start.

Free-agent RB Tevin Coleman (49ers) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $2 million with the New York Jets on Wednesday, March 24.

Footballguys view: The Jets need running back help and Coleman is part of the solution. He's still got straight-line speed but should not be counted on to carry a heavy workload. We expect the Jets to address the running back position on the second or third day of the 2021 NFL draft. La'Mical Perine, Ty Johnson, and Josh Adams will compete to make a RBBC with Coleman as likely the lead back.

Footballguys view: Perine actually looked better than he had before in the NFL during some time with the Bengals. He's a two-down power back who can wear down a defense as the game goes on. Perine will work in the rotation behind starter Joe Mixon.
