The Antonio Brown saga is finally over. After enduring through months of complaining from Brown, as well as a fake news report from Ian Rapoport, the Steelers have finally rid themselves of the locker room cancer. Watching this whole situation unfold was more dramatic than an episode of Real Housewives and somehow less entertaining.
Now that the 2019 NFL combine is behind us, free agency is just around the corner. Every fan base will be excited or will be disappointed based on what kind of moves their team makes. Meanwhile, fantasy football players are keeping a close eye on where the top free agents land. This year’s free agency class isn’t very good offensively so there will be plenty of competition for the top players’ services. I determined the top 12 free agents (offensive guys only, no IDP names here) and picked out the best landing spot for their 2019 redraft fantasy value.
Whenever all 32 NFL teams are together the hot stove of trade talk will, of course, pick up. According to Ian Rapaport that is exactly what has happened to where Antonio Brown is reportedly favored to be traded before his roster bonus kicks in on March 17th.
When looking at the MVP race this NFL season, you tend to hear the same names mentioned as the top candidates. Names such as Todd Gurley, Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes, and Philip Rivers. These are some of the names that come to mind. However, there is a player that has been playing outstanding football, but is not receiving nearly the amount of recognition the players I listed are. The player I am speaking so highly of is Ben Roethlisberger.
