Most of the NFL’s juiciest player moves happened during the “legal manipulation” phase in week one, but when free agency kicked off in earnest on Wednesday, there were still plenty of signings for fantasy managers to enjoy. The biggest move wasn’t even technically a transaction since the endlessly introspective Aaron Rodgers announced his intention to be traded to the New York Jets, but nothing will be official until the Green Bay Packers clear a trade offset with his team of the future.
Matt Harmon is accompanied by Fantasy Life’s Dwain McFarland to look at Wednesday and Thursday’s biggest moves, beginning with an in-depth look at the Jets offense with Rodgers at the helm. How high should managers draft second WR Garrett Wilson next year? What about third-year WR Elijah Moore, who had an intriguing first season in New York but found himself in the doghouse for much of 2022?
Later, Matt and Dwain discuss the New England Patriots’ signing of JuJu Smith-Schuster and whether they might be in the market to trade for a Cardinals or Broncos wideout. They’re also responding to the week’s news that the Dallas Cowboys would fire RB Ezekiel Elliott, and they’re talking about their favorite potential Zeke landing spots.
To wrap up the show, they discuss the Carolina Panthers’ moves and go over a number of other free agency additions, including a trio of minor QB moves in Baker Mayfield, Jacoby Brissett & Gardner Minshew and three RBs signing new contracts in David Montgomery have , Jamaal Williams & Alexander Mattison.
