  Jaguars | Chris Thompson on his way out?    Tue Jan 26, 10:17 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Thompson 'isn't the long-term answer' as a third-down back because of his injury history and the emergence of RB James Robinson, in the opinion of Garry Smits of The Florida Times-Union.

  49ers | Jeff Wilson Jr. re-ups    Tue Jan 26, 06:55 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. signed a one-year contract Tuesday, Jan. 26, but financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: He was scheduled to be a restricted free agent at the end of the league year. Instead, Wilson is staying with the 49ers where he can be a valuable reserve player they can trust as a spot starter.

  Bills | Buffalo inks 13 to futures deals    Tue Jan 26, 04:52 PM

Free-agent OT Trey Adams, TE Nate Becker, RBs Christian Wade and Antonio Williams, DT Brandin Bryant, DEs Bryan Cox Jr. and Mike Love, WRs Tanner Gentry, Jake Kumerow and Duke Williams, CB Dane Jackson, S Josh Thomas and QB Davis Webb signed Reserve/Future contracts with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

Footballguys view: Gentry was a favorite target of QB Josh Allen in college at the University of Wyoming. He's a try-hard slot receiver who has bounced around the league. Let's see if working with Allen again can help him stick on a roster.

  Chiefs | Le'Veon Bell to play    Tue Jan 26, 12:33 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is expected to be ready to play in Super Bowl LV, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Bell will give the team veteran depth behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He likely won't do much in the Super Bowl.

  Bears | Cordarrelle Patterson may return    Mon Jan 25, 10:17 PM

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB/WR Cordarrelle Patterson is likely a player the Bears will look to re-sign this offseason.

Footballguys view: Patterson's new deal won't break the bank. He has versatility on offense and can contribute on special teams. The former first-round pick has never played up to his draft status, but it seems like he's become a solid player for the Bears.

  Bills | Three sign futures deals    Mon Jan 25, 08:58 PM

Free-agent WR Jake Kumerow, RB Antonio Williams and WR Tanner Gentry signed Reserve/Future contracts with the Buffalo Bills Monday, Jan. 25, according to sources. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Gentry was Josh Allen's favorite target in college at the University of Wyoming. He's bounced around the league a bit during his short time in the pros. Perhaps reuniting with Allen will help him stick on a roster.

  Ravens | Gus Edwards likely to receive tender    Mon Jan 25, 08:09 PM

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent RB Gus Edwards likely will receive a tender offer this offseason, but the team may need to use the first-round or second-round tender offer on Edwards.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much they want to keep Edwards around as a rotational player with J.K. Dobbins. The team would not receive any compensation if they used the original-round tender because Edwards was an undrafted free agent.

  Packers | Ten sign futures deals with Green Bay    Mon Jan 25, 05:17 PM

Free-agent LBs Tipa Galeai and De'Jon Harris, OG Zack Johnson, TE Isaac Nauta, DLs Willington Previlon and Anthony Rush, RBs Mike Weber and Dexter Williams, CB Stanford Samuels and P Ryan Winslow signed Reserve/Future contracts with the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Weber and Williams are players to watch in super deep dynasty formats. Partly because of their skill but partly because the Packers running back room is going to look different in 2021. Both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are set to be unrestricted free agents this offseason.

  Lions | Duce Staley hired in Detroit    Mon Jan 25, 11:53 AM

Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley was hired as assistant head coach/running backs for the Detroit Lions Monday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Dan Campbell, new Lions head coach, is putting together a helluva staff. Former Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn has signed on as the offensive coordinator, and now Staley comes on board to help run the offense and the backfield. Staley has been thought of as a potential head coach but was passed over with the Eagles. Now, he'll join a new staff and a new team to further advance his career.

  Bills | Buffalo falls short of Super Bowl    Sun Jan 24, 10:22 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen completed 28 of his 48 passes for 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and rushed seven times for 88 yards in a 38-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24. RB Devin Singletary was bottled up, rushing for 17 yards and six carries and gaining nine yards on two catches. WR Cole Beasley had seven grabs for 88 yards, WR Stefon Diggs had six receptions on 11 targets for 77 yards, and TE Dawson Knox caught six balls for 42 yards and a touchdown. WR Isaiah McKenzie caught a six-yard touchdown pass on his only reception, and RB T.J. Yeldon had seven touches for 56 total yards.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 29 of his 38 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-24 win over the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24. WR Tyreek Hill had nine catches for 172 yards, and TE Travis Kelce had 13 receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns. WR Mecole Hardman had two catches for four yards and a score to go along with a 50-yard run and a lost fumble on special teams. RB Darrel Williams rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown and added one catch for nine yards. Clyde Edwards-Helaire had six carries for seven yards and a score. LB Frank Clark recorded a pair of sacks, and S Juan Thornhill broke up four passes.

  Packers | Green Bay falls in NFC title game    Sun Jan 24, 06:24 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33-of-48 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Aaron Jones, who left the game early due to injury, left the team with 27 yards on six rushes. RB Jamaal Williams ran seven times for 23 yards and added four receptions for 22 yards. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the way with a game-high 115 yards on four receptions and a score, while WR Davante Adams had nine grabs for 67 yards and a score on 15 targets. WR Allen Lazard checked in with three receptions for 62 yards, while TE Marcedes Lewis had three grabs for 28 yards. TE Robert Tonyan also checked in with four grabs, 22 yards and a score. CB Jaire Alexander led the way with two interceptions, while totaling three total tackles and three passes defensed.

Footballguys view: Rodgers had a lot of chances to take control of this game in the second half after his team fell behind 18 points, but the Packers offense wasn't good enough in the red zone and Matt LaFleur chose to kick a field goal instead of going for it on fourth and goal at the 8, down 8 with about two minutes left. Jones has probably played his last down as a Packer, and Williams is also a free agent. Valdes-Scantling had a big game after playing only one snap the NFC title game last year. Adams impact on the game was not as big as expected and if anything Rodgers overreliance on him in the red zone hurt the team. The Packers will go back to the drawing board after getting one game from the Super Bowl two years in a row.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay headed for Super Bowl LV    Sun Jan 24, 06:10 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady completed 20-of-36 passes for 280 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 24. It will be his 10th Super Bowl appearance, and the Bucs are the first team to play the game in their home stadium. RB Leonard Fournette ran 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown while adding five receptions for 19 yards, RB Ronald Jones rushed 10 times for 16 yards, WR Chris Godwin racked up five receptions for a team-best 110 yards on nine targets and WR Mike Evans added three receptions for 51 yards and a score on eight targets. WR Scott Miller also cashed in his three targets for two catches, 36 yards and a touchdown, while TE Rob Gronkowski was limited to one catch for 29 yards on his lone target. TE Cameron Brate picked up three grabs for 19 yards and a score, while WR Tyler Johnson rounded things out with one catch for 16 yards. LB Devin White led the way defensively with a staggering game-high 15 total tackles, including nine of the solo variety.

Footballguys view: Brady wasn't the reason the Bucs won, but he did have two good long passes to offset his three interceptions, which his defense did a great job of minimizing in the story of the outcome of the game. Leonard Fournette goes to the Super Bowl with Tom Brady after his 2017 Jaguars team was ousted by Brady. Godwin had great hands deep on his key play early, while Evans hands were more suspect, although the interception off of his hands in the red zone was more on Brady than him. Tampa Bay will be the first team to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium.

The Kansas City Chiefs have declared RB Le'Veon Bell, WR Sammy Watkins, CB Thakarius Keyes, DE Tim Ward, DL Khalen Saunders, LB Willie Gay and OG Yasir Durant inactive for Conference Championships.

Footballguys view: Watkins misses out on a 1.25 million incentive that would have triggered if they won today and Watkins played more than 50% of the offensive snaps.

  Packers | Aaron Jones suffers injury    Sun Jan 24, 04:58 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (chest) suffered a chest injury during the NFC Championship game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Jones might have played his down as a Packer. AJ Dillon looked good in his stead and the Packers will be reluctant to pay Jones market value.

  Eagles | Duce Staley wants to be released from contract    Sun Jan 24, 11:42 AM

Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley has asked to be released from his contract so that he can pursue other coaching opportunities. Several NFL teams have expressed interest in him, including the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. Staley is expected to speak with owner Jeffrey Lurie soon about the matter.

Footballguys view: Staley smartly sees that his future with the Eagles isn't going to lead to a promotion if it didn't after the team let Doug Pederson go.

  Football Team | J.D. McKissic busy in pass game    Sat Jan 23, 10:41 PM

Washington Football Team RB J.D. McKissic's 589 receiving yards and 80 receptions trailed only New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara among running backs in 2020.

Footballguys view: McKissic was signed to a two-year deal, so he'll be back with Antonio Gibson next year and should be drafted in every PPR league.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs lacked explosiveness    Sat Jan 23, 10:19 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' 3.9 yards per carry and three runs of 20-plus yards were both the fewest among the eight backs who reached 1,000 rushing yards in 2020.

Footballguys view: Jacobs went in the first round of some 2020 fantasy drafts on hopes of an even better year running the ball and newfound opportunity in the passing game but it never came together. He might be available in the third round in 2021 drafts.

  Ravens | J.K. Dobbins made the most of his carries    Sat Jan 23, 09:36 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins led all running backs with an average of 6.0 yards per carry in 2020, and his 805 rushing yards and nine touchdowns were the most among backs with fewer than 150 carries.

Footballguys view: Dobbins will still available outside of the top 10 running backs in most 2021 fantasy drafts and could take a big step forward even if he shared again with restricted free agent Gus Edwards.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams on track to play    Fri Jan 22, 06:21 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 22, but is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Packers here. They're up against a tough front seven of the Buccaneers defense, so having a battering ram like Williams would greatly help. He'll serve as a power option and sometimes receiving back behind starter Aaron Jones.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (quad, finger) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Jan. 22, and was removed from the injury report for the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Jones is going to get out there like he did in the Divisional Round but there's no word on whether or not he's going to start or if Leonard Fournette is going to get that nod. They'll both work in a RBBC against the Packers on Sunday.

RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) practiced in a limited fashion again Friday, Jan. 22, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs may have their rookie first-round pick available in the AFC Championship Game. Having his speed and big-play ability on the field would greatly help the offense with a chance to go to Super Bowl LV on the line.

  Jaguars | James Robinson carried the load    Thu Jan 21, 10:19 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson ranked sixth among running backs with 641 snaps played in 2020 despite missing the final two games with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Robinson was a find for the Jaguars. He was undrafted coming out of Illinois State in 2020 and rushed for over 1,000 yards. Robinson should be a centerpiece of what the Jaguars do on offense in 2021, and he'll benefit from no.1 pick Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) ...the expected pick at the top of the 2021 NFL draft.

  Titans | Derrick Henry a battering ram    Thu Jan 21, 10:08 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry led all running backs with 75 forced missed tackles this season, and his 1,490 rushing yards after contact were the most in the league.

Footballguys view: That's almost 1,500 yards AFTER contact. Henry has always been a battering ram and in 2020 the Titans finally used him as such for the entire season. The result was his most productive season as a pro as Henry became one of the few RBs in the 2,000-yard club.

S Will Redmond (knee) practiced in full.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Dillon and Williams in the backfield as the week of practice continues. Both are key players behind starter Aaron Jones and can bring some power to the field as runners, plus Williams can work effectively as a receiving back.

  Bills | Buffalo protects four for AFC Championship    Tue Jan 19, 06:27 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Devonta Freeman, C Jonotthan Harrison, WR Kenny Stills and RB Antonio Williams were designated as protected practice squad players for the AFC Championship Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: They haven't needed Stills yet as Cole Beasley has been able to play through injury during the playoffs. However, the veteran receiver is a great player to have around if you need to go deeper at the position with one -- and maybe two -- games left for the Bills this postseason.

  Ravens | Baltimore parts with Mark Ingram    Tue Jan 19, 04:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Mark Ingram was officially waived Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: The Ravens have J.K. Dobbins to lead their backfield into the future. Add in Gus Edwards behind him, and you can see why the Ravens decided to move on from Ingram...although the timing here is a bit interesting. The move clears up $5 million in much-needed cap space for the Ravens. Ingram still has something left in the tank, so some team out there should be interested for the 2021 season as he can be quality veteran depth.
