NFL Free Agent Fantasy Football Impacts w/ ADP

We take a closer look at each signing and what it means. Profiled players include Josh McCown, Donald Brown, Jonathan Dwyer, Toby Gerhart, and Rashad Jennings.

Jets - 5 years, $36.25 Million

Decker has gone from one of many weapons at Peyton Manning's disposal to the big man on campus with the Jets. Geno Smith and the Jets desperately needed to add a playmaker and Decker will have to fit the bill. His fantasy value isn't likely to improve much, but it could certainly decline. His PPR numbers will probably become favorable since he will be the No. 1 target. Given there is so little competition around him in New York, Decker should tentatively stay around the same spot. He will make for a good WR2 or elite WR3 on your squad.

Average Draft Position Prior to the Move:

  • Redraft ADP - 5.4 WR26
  • Dynasty ADP - 4.1 WR19

Redskins - 4 years, $18 Million

Adding Roberts into the Redskins mix is an interesting move. Behind Pierre Garcon is a deluge of mediocrity in which Roberts will either rise to the top or further sink. Roberts never quite had the room to spread his wings in Arizona. He was always going to be second fiddle to Larry Fitzgerald and before he could hit his developmental stride, Arizona fiddled with guys like WR Early Doucet and brought in WR Michael Floyd. Given the reasonable price point per year, Roberts could absolutely flourish in Washington given his size and speed. Washington just has to hope somebody can really emerge from the pack to help Garcon.

Average Draft Position Prior to the Move:

  • Redraft ADP - 27.7 WR97
  • Dynasty ADP - 18.7 WR90

Lions - 5 years, $31 Million

The always pass-happy Lions have finally given Calvin Johnson a running mate who wasn't pushing 30 years old and isn't named Titus Young. Tate possesses great hands and a relentless attitude after the catch. With Matthew Stafford chucking the football about 50 times every week, Tate goes from a ball-control, methodical offense to nearly the exact opposite. Expect an increase across the board in all statistical categories. Even if Detroit adds a big-time first round receiver, Tate is good for at least one good season as Detroit's No. 2 WR. Bump him up into WR3 territory in redraft and a bigger bump in dynasty since he will only be 26 at the beginning of the 2014 season.

Average Draft Position Prior to the Move:

  • Redraft ADP - 16.1 WR69
  • Dynasty ADP - 16.5 WR80

Cardinals - 2 years, $4.65 Million

The man to beat at TE in Arizona is still Rob Housler. Carlson is a quality reserve and an above-average blocker. Keep him on the waiver wire and far away from your starting lineup.

Average Draft Position Prior to the Move:

  • Redraft ADP - Not drafted in 28 rounds.
  • Dynasty ADP - Not drafted in 20 rounds.

Bucs - 2 years, $4 Million

After an excellent 2012 season with the Raiders, Myers fell off the map in 2013 in New York. He posted just 47 receptions for 522 yards. The Giants needed him to stay in as a blocker more often than not and his numbers faltered. A change of scenery lands him in Tampa Bay where he'll need to fend off Timothy Wright after his excellent close to the season. Myers is a very low TE2 if he's the full-time starter. Wright probably has the higher fantasy ceiling, but Lovie Smith stated he wants a better run blocker at the position. This is a situation which will probably not find a real solution until Week 1 is upon us.

  • Redraft ADP - 23.7 TE34
  • Dynasty ADP - Not drafted in 20 rounds.
