Player Notes

  • Cowboys sign Royce Freeman
    Cowboys signed RB Royce Freeman, formerly of the Rams, to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Freeman has bounced around the league in his six seasons, most recently spending 2023 with the Rams. He rushed 77 times for 319 yards and two touchdowns in a backup capacity, getting his most opportunities in Kyren Williams’ absence. The veteran now joins a sparse Cowboys backfield that currently has Rico Dowdle and Deuce Vaughn as its top two running backs. Freeman’s signing should not take the Cowboys out of the running to add another back in this year’s draft. Rotoworld Today, 5:23 pm

  • Trent Taylor returning to 49ers on one-year deal
    The 49ers have agreed to terms with Trent Taylor, formerly of the Bears, on a one-year deal.

    Advice: Taylor returns to the 49ers for the first time since 2020. The past three seasons he spent time as a reserve for the Bears and Bengals. The 29-year old receiver had his best season in 2017 as a rookie (43-430-2) with the 49ers who originally drafted him. He’ll now look to stick in San Fransisco once again. Rotoworld Today, 2:08 pm

  • Stefanski: No timetable for Chubb’s return
    Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said there’s no timetable yet for Nick Chubb’s return from a knee injury.

    Advice: Chubb suffered a pretty brutal knee injury in Week 2 of the 2023 season and has now undergone two major knee surgeries during his career. At 28 years old, there is no guarantee he will come back to the same level we’ve come to know from him. “I can promise you he’s working very hard,” said Stefanski. “I don’t know that we’ll go past today and this week. At least that’s the way I’m looking at it...When he’s ready, he’ll be ready.” Rotoworld Today, 11:52 am

  • Browns have ‘very, very good plan’ for Watson
    Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said the team has “a very, very good plan” for Deshaun Watson (shoulder).

    Advice: Watson, who played in six games in 2023, is coming back from a fractured shoulder and said he would be ready for Week 1. “He’s doing all the things he’s supposed to be doing when it comes to rehab” said Stefanski. “When he get to those points and OTAs and minicamp, we will go with what’s suggested by the medical team.” There’s still plenty of time to go before Week 1 so much of this will depend on how Watson’s shoulder continues to respond to treatment, but both Stefanski and the Browns training staff seems to feel good about Watson being under center to start the season.

  • Rap: Dolphins plan to pick up Waddle option
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins will exercise Jaylen Waddle’s fifth-year option.

    Advice: Waddle has had a nice start to his career racking up at least 70 receptions and 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons. It’s no surprise the Dolphins’ GM Chris Grier will use the option on him and Jaelan Phillips who were both drafted in 2021. Waddle will remain a key cog in the Dolphins’ offensive machine, while being a better-than-average fantasy option. Rotoworld Today, 10:52 am
