2011 player movement tracker

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

There are two kinds of Fantasy Football owners: Those who stay on top of the news all year long, and those who wake up the day of their draft and pretend to have a clue as to who plays on which team.

Clearly, you're the former -- you want to know where the top Fantasy-relevant players are headed. So we've devised this sortable chart that will track the movement of relevant Fantasy players this offseason.

As you might have heard, there is no labor agreement between the NFL's owners and players after the 2010 season. Because of this, there is uncertainty as to how free agency will work under a new agreement.

Last offseason, only free agents who had six or more years of service were unrestricted. Free agents with three-to-five years of service were restricted, and all others were exclusive-rights free agents. Because of the labor uncertainty, we labeled the years of service each restricted free agent has since some of them might not be restricted when a deal is reached.

Some additional free-agent notes:

UFA: Unrestricted Free Agent -- A player who can sign anywhere.*
RFA: Restricted Free Agent -- A player who can sign anywhere but original team can match offer or receive compensation from new team. (Compensation will be added upon announcement of team designations.)
EXFA: Exclusive Rights Free Agent -- A player who can only negotiate with current team.
FRAN: Franchised Player -- A player who is guaranteed a one-year deal from his original team at the average salary of the five highest-paid players at his position. If new team signs player, original team gets two first-round picks from new team as compensation.
TRAN: Transition Player -- A player who is guaranteed a one-year deal from his original team at the average salary of the 10e highest-paid players at his position. Original team receives no compensation if it doesn't match offer from new team.

*- released players also have this designation

Here's our list of players entering a contract year, and here's our list of overvalued players.

Patriots RB Jonas Gray benched in favor of LeGarrette Blount
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) Just a week removed from a dominant 201-yard, four-touchdown performance, Patriots running back Jonas Gray was benched for not arriving to practice on time earlier in the week. As a result, Gray watched his new running mate LeGarrette Blount rumbled into the end zone twice in New England's 34-9 victory over the Lions in Week 12.

Jordy Nelson leads the way for Packers Week 12
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) Packers wideout Jordy Nelson led the way again Week 12 against the Vikings.

Nelson didn't have a huge gain, picking up just 68 yards during the contest. Still, that was enough to lead the team in receiving on the day. Nelson, who has been a consistent deep threat all season, was mostly held to short catches. He averaged just 8.5 yards per catch on eight catches. Nelson was targeted a team-high 12 times, so Aaron Rodgers was trying to get the ball to his biggest playmaker. 

Nelson will look for more Week 13 against the Patriots. 


Dan Herron starts, but Trent Richardson scores
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:25 pm ET) With Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) out for the season, the Colts started unheralded running back Dan Herron against the Jaguars. He acquitted himself well, rushing 12 times for 65 yards (5.4 ypc) and catching all five of his targets for 31 yards. He did lose a fumble.

Trent Richardson saw a similar workload on the ground, rushing 13 times for 42 yards (3.2 ypc). It was Richardson who got the goal-line carry in the third quarter, and he punched in a 1-yard touchdown, his third score this season. Richardson was targeted once without a catch.

They figure to split the workload again Week 13 against the Redskins.


Packers RB James Starks has one carry Week 12
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:22 pm ET) Packers running back James Starks had just one carry Week 12 against the Vikings.

Starks lost four yards on the carry and fumbled. The Packers were able to recover the ball, but Starks did not receive another opportunity during the contest.

He'll look for more Week 13 against the Patriots. 


Packers RB Eddie Lacy finds the end zone twice Week 12
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:21 pm ET) Packers running back Eddie Lacy found the end zone twice Week 12 against the Vikings.

Lacy was a big part of the Packers gameplan. He received a season-high 25 carries, gaining 125 yards on the ground. In the first quarter, Lacy plowed in a 1 yard score for his first touchdown of the contest. He would strike again in the fourth quarter, this time through the air. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers found Lacy on a 10 yard score. Lacy finished with two receptions for 13 yards. 

Lacy will look for more Week 13 against the Patriots. 


Bengals QB Andy Dalton held to one passing TD Week 12
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:20 pm ET) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw one touchdown and one interception during a 22-13 win Week 12 at Houston. Dalton completed 24 of 35 passes for 233 yards, while rushing for 6 yards on seven carries.

Dalton's lone touchdown pass came on the team's second offensive drive -- a 6-yard completion to wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. Dalton's favorite target on the afternoon was star receiver A.J. Green, who caught a career-high 12 passes for 121 yards.

Dalton has had more games this season with one or no passing touchdowns (seven) than he has had multiple passing touchdowns (four). The Bengals are back in action Week 13 at Tampa Bay.


Packers QB Aaron Rodgers tosses two touchdowns
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:18 pm ET) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tossed two touchdowns Week 12 against the Vikings.

It was just an average game for the superstar quarterback. Rodgers completed 19 of 29 passes for 209 yards and two scores. He was effecient when throwing, averaging a strong 7.2 yards per completion. Rodgers did not turn the ball over during the contest. Both of Rodgers touchdowns came from within the 10 yard line. The first was actually from a yard out. Rodgers faked a handoff, and found tight end Richard Rodgers wide open in the corner of the end zone. On his second touchdown, Rodgers found Eddie Lacy from 10 yards out. Rodgers also had 34 rushing yards.

Rodgers will look for more Week 13 against the Patriots.


Patriots G Dan Connolly departs with ankle injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:16 pm ET) Patriots guard Dan Connolly left Sunday's game against the Lions with an ankle injury. Connolly suffered the injury in the second half and was designated as questionable to return to the game.

Andrew Luck comes up one short of Drew Brees
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:16 pm ET) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck saw his streak of 300-yard passing games end at eight Sunday against the Jaguars. He failed to equal Drew Brees' NFL record of nine, a feat Brees accomplished twice.

Luck completed 21 of 32 throws for 253 yards and a touchdown and ran eight times for 49 yards. Luck was sacked five times, all in the first half, and he fumbled four times, losing two.

After a lackluster first half, Luck got untracked in the third quarter, hitting T.Y. Hilton in stride for a 73-yard touchown. But this marked Luck's first game all season without multiple touchowns.

He'll face the Redskins in Week 13.


Titans LT Taylor Lewan carted off with ankle injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:13 pm ET) Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan went down with a right ankle injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against Philadelphia. Lewman was helped off the field, then later carted to the locker room after having his leg rolled up. With the game well out of hand, his return remains unlikely.
