Next up in our Fantasy Fallout series, we take a look at the Jaguars' new franchise QB in Nick Foles. While the name in Foles is flashy, one should not expect flashy fantasy production. The move to Jacksonville obviously establishes long-term stability and expected production from Foles but based on his production in Philly and the extreme lack of weapons he now has, he shouldn't be expected to be a viable option in fantasy. Similar to what was expected heading into free agency, Foles still stands as a low-QB2 or high-QB3 with very limited upside but a solid floor. Consistency (with his supporting cast) will be an issue and efficiency in FPPT may struggle but Foles is one of the few players you don't have to worry about deviating far below his preseason expectations.

Over the next month, I will cover the notable fantasy impacts from various signings and trades in our Fantasy Fallout series. First we begin with Kareem Hunt to the Cleveland Browns. There's not much doubt that Kareem Hunt was an elite/high RB1 in Kansas City, but now in Cleveland and missing a majority of the fantasy season, Hunt's worth is limited. Cleveland was far from an ideal destination for Hunt given he will not see a workhorse role upon returning from suspension, rather being a part of arguably the deepest and best RBBC in the NFL with Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson. When he returns from suspension, one should expect Hunt puts up low-RB2 numbers in the final few games of 2019. His upside and security are in extreme question due to the RBBC but his production and efficiency likely leaves him as a low-risk/high reward option in the later rounds of drafts, especially in leagues with an IR/SUS reserve spot.

COACHING CHANGE: PACKER EDITION ——————————————————— About time you guys got rid of Mike McCarthy. You’ve been bailed out by Rodgers so much, and the past 2 years have shown that McCarthy was relying only on him (not like the GMs of past helped with bringing in talent at all). So who do you get? A McVay disciple in Matt LaFluer? So this is the trend? To be quite honest, I like the hire by them. He can surround a set system for Rodgers, which the offense minus a true RB core, that side of the ball is set. Their main problem is the defense, with former Jet DC and Browns HC Mike Pettine, whose defenses were either really good or flat out terrible, I’m not so sure if it could be pinned as a good or bad hire. What helps is with the additions of Adrian Amos, Za’Darius Smith, and Preston Brown to rebuild the defense. So the Packers have the right steps in place to take back what was theirs, as long as the Bears don’t trample them this year. #greenbay#packers#aaronrodgers#devanteadams#nfl#nflnews#fantasyfootball#freeagency#nfldraft
AFC South Free Agency Grades👀🔥 Titans-they got Mariota another target in Adam Humphries, got Rodger Saffold for protection, and Cameron Wake to improve their defense Jaguars-The Jaguars finally got a replacement for Bortles by signing Nick Foles, as well as resigning many players Colts-they added Pierre Desir and Devin Funchess, which isn’t much, but very good for this already talented team Texans-They did not address any part of their offensive line, which is puzzling, as they gave up 62 sacks last season
AFC East Free Agency Grades🔥👀. Jets-they got great additions, as they signed C.J. Mosley, Le’Veon Bell, and Jamison Crowder Patriots-as usual, the patriots didn’t do much in free agency, but their trade for Michael Bennett could help them come next season Dolphins-Miami didn’t do much good, trading away Tannehill and replacing him with Fitzpatrick. They are primarily focused on the 2020 draft, more specifically Tua Tagovailoa Bills-The bills were focused on getting Josh Allen better pieces on offense, and they did getting Cole Beasley, John Brown, And Tyler Kroft as targets, as well as getting Mitch Morse and Ty Neshke for better protection up front

@Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane said the team is undecided about exercising DE Shaq Lawson’s 2020 fifth-year option. Lawson, 24, is entering the final year of his 4-year/$10.278M rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.851M for the 2019 season. Lawson appeared in 14 games for the Bills last season (6 starts) and recorded 30 total tackles, 4.0 sacks, five pass defenses, and two forced fumbles. The Bills selected Lawson with the 19th overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.
AFC West Free Agency Grades👀🔥 Chiefs-They lost many players with the trade of Dee ford and the release of Eric Berry, but picking up Tyrann Mathieu was a good addition to this team. Broncos-They picked up Joe Flacco, who will most likely teach a QB from the draft. They also got a #2 CB by signing Kareem Jackson and signing Ja’Wuan James at tackle. Raiders-The raiders made a great trade for AB without trading any first rounders, as well as signing Burfict,Tyrell Williams, JJ Nelson, Lamarcus Joyner, and much more to help improve their team for next season. Chargers-the only somewhat big signing they made was Tyrod Taylor, and he’ll be a good backup in case Rivers gets injured.
