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

Money is generally considered one of the great motivators. That fact isn't lost on fantasy football owners. It's the reason players entering the final year of their contracts get a longer look than they normally would on draft day. Read our Contract Year Player Research.
