2016 CONTRACT YEAR PLAYERS / 2017 FREE AGENTS

Contract Year Player: A player whose NFL contract is ending this season. The general consensus is that the nfl players in contract year will perform better since their next contract is dependant on them having a productive season. From our Fantasy Football Dictionary
