Foles Officially Lands In Jacksonville

For the second time this season, a former Super Bowl MVP is changing teams. Nick Foles and the Jacksonville Jaguars agreed on a deal on Monday afternoon.

Foles is essentiality Blake Bortles heavy. However, he  gives the Jags a quarterback they don’t have to hide if the can make the playoffs again.

The seventh-year veteran has thrown for just over 11,000 yards for three teams, mostly as a backup.

In his last 17 games, Foles has thrown for 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Two of the top three pass catchers for the Jaguars are likely departing this offseason. Dede Westbrook led the Jags in receiving with 66 catches for 717 yards and five scores, catching passes from Bortles and Cody Kessler.

Free agent running back T.J. Yeldon, was second on the team with 487 yards and four scores. Departing Donte Moncrief, had 668 yards and three touchdowns.

Keelan Cole had 491 yards and a touchdown. Westbrook should be the highest scorer of the receivers, but is solidly a WR3.

If Foles can be more of playoffs Foles and less of regular season Foles, he could be a QB2 in the upcoming season.

Jamison Crowder, Wide Reciever

Crowder battled injuries for much of the 2018 season, catching passes for just 388 yards. However, he has been a solid slot receiver for the Redskins.

In four seasons, Crowder has 221 catches for 2,628 yards and 14 touchdowns. Crowder’s best season was in 2016 when he caught 67 Kirk Cousin passes for 847 yards and seven scores.

The veteran receiver should immediately impact Sam Darnold, who has been throwing passes to Jermaine Kearse in the slot.

Crowder will open the season as a flex option, but could move up as his rapport with Darnold improves.

DeSean Jackson, Wide Receiver

In possibly the second-biggest move of the day, Carson Wentz got himself a new slot reciever.

The veteran trouble maker has found his way back to Philadelphia. D-Jax averaged over 18 yards per catch, in a pass happy offense in Tampa Bay.

Jackson, who still has wheels, should still be able to take the top of an offense. The biggest help Jackson provides to fantasy owners is the impact he will make taking defenders away from Alshon Jeffrey and Zach Ertz.

Jackson is a WR3 in the Philly offense and is a great option in best ball formats.

Chris Godwin gets a huge bump in Tampa, starting opposite of Mike Evans. Godwin will certainly find himself in the WR2 conversation.

Adam Humphries, Wide Receiver

Going into an all or nothing year, Jameis Winston will be down his deep man and slot receiver. Possession man, Adam Humphries, was inked to a deal that will have him catching passes from the 2015 Draft’s second pick in Tennessee.

Marcus Mariota now has a guy in the middle to go along with Corey Davis and Taywon Taylor.

Humphries caught passes for 816 yards and five scores last season as the chain mover in Tampa Bay.

His PPR value will drop slightly going from a pass-happy to a run determined offense. If Humphries can reach 80 receptions, he could be an every week starter for most fantasy teams.

Frank Gore, Running Back

After signing with the Bills on Monday, it appears as if Gore May never retire.

Buffalo will be Gore’s fourth team in 14 years. Gore is fourth all-time in rushing, 521 yards behind Barry Sanders. Gore has 14,748 yards and 77 touchdowns in his career.

Gore ran for 722 yards last season, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, but failed to get in the end zone in the ground for the Dolphins.

Gore is barely on the fantasy radar, however, he is a good best ball option.

C.J. Uzomah, Tight End

Uzomah was successful on the wheel of Bengals tight end, catching passes for over 400 yards and three scores.

The four-year veteran has been more of a blocker in his career, however, the emergence of a second-WR in Tyler Boyd will help open up the middle for Uzomah and TE company.

Although he plays the most shallow of fantasy positions, Uzomah is a mid-to-low range TE2 that will be very touchdown dependent.

Jesse James, Tight End 

The former Steeler is how headed to Detroit. James has just 120 catches for 1,189 yards in his career, but should fare better in an offense without two alphadog WRs.

While he should be the TE1 for the Lions, James is little more than a best ball option at this point.

Tyler Kroft, Tight End

On the same day the Bengals retained Uzomah, former Bengal Kroft, ends up in Buffalo.

Kroft appears to be the best tight end in Buffalo with Charles Clay in Arizona. That will leave him to compete with quarterback convert, Logan Thomas, for touches at TE.

Kroft caught seven touchdowns in 2017. He is barely a best ball option at this point.
