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.

Short week will make it hard for Brandon Flowers to play
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:23 pm ET) Chargers starting cornerback Brandon Flowers, who suffered a concussion Sunday against the Chiefs, "very well could be sidelined" for Thursday's game at Denver, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Seahawks CB Byron Maxwell might return Sunday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8:50 pm ET) Seahawks cornerback Byron Maxwell, who missed the loss at St. Louis with a calf injury, has a chance to play Sunday at Carolina, coach Pete Carroll told reporters. Maxwell suffered the injury Week 6 against Dallas.

Seahawks TE Luke Willson, C Max Unger could return Week 8
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8:02 pm ET) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said tight end Luke Willson (groin) almost certainly will play Sunday at Carolina, and that center Max Unger (foot) has a chance to play, reports the Seattle Times. Both missed the Week 7 loss at St. Louis.

Jeff Fisher: Zac Stacy 'could get 25 carries this week'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7:46 pm ET) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team's running back situation will continue to be a "week-to-week thing," adding Zac Stacy's lack of playing time Sunday wasn't an indicator of things to come. Stacy played one snap and got zero carries in the win over the Seahawks.

"We’ve got three outstanding runners," Fisher said, referring to Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason. "And as I mentioned, we think Trey Watts can also help us, so we’re going to use them all. It’ll be a week-to-week thing. Zac could get 25 carries this week. We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with ‘Mase.' It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done. He’s been a little banged up the last couple of weeks, but obviously he’s an outstanding runner as well. We clearly have significant depth there at the position."

Fisher noted Stacy missed practice time the past couple weeks due to calf and ankle injuries.

"The good thing about this is he’ll come back and should be 100 percent this week and just see where it goes," Fisher said.

The Rams visit the Chiefs in Week 8.


Injured Texans cleared for action
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
