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.

Steelers switch out running backs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Steelers waived running back Alvester Alexander and signed former Redskins running back Jawan Jamison.

Cardinals expect John Abraham in 5-6 days
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he expects Pro Bowl outside linebacker John Abraham to report to camp within five to six days, reports the Arizona Republic. Abraham was arrested last month in the Atlanta area and charged with DUI.

Given that it's his second known DUI arrest since coming into the league, Abraham could be looking at a two- to four-game suspension, the paper said. He led Arizona with 11.5 sacks last year.


Doug Marrone: C.J. Spiller 'looks more explosive' this year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Bills coach Doug Marrone said running back C.J. Spiller "looks more explosive than he did during the season last year." Spiller was bothered by a high ankle sprain much of last season, when he ran for 927 yards and two touchdowns.

Jerry Rice Jr. headed for injured reserve
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Redskins receiver Jerry Rice tore the labrum in his left shoulder Thursday and will need surgery, coach Jay Gruden said, adding Rice likely will go on injured reserve. Rice fell on his shoulder trying to make a catch in the end zone.

The son of the Hall of Famer went undrafted out of UNLV before hooking on with the Redskins.


Jets add RB Michael Smith
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Jets signed former Buccaneers running back Michael Smith, reports the National Football Post. Smith, who appeared in one game for Tampa Bay in 2012, was waived by the Bucs three months ago.

Kenny Stills back on the field
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Saints receiver Kenny Stills, who had been out a week with a quad injury, caught passes and participated in Friday's walkthrough, reports The New Orleans Advocate.

Both Bears' safety spots up for grabs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Five-time Pro Bowler Adrian Wilson and Danny McCray worked as the Bears' starting safeties Friday, but both positions are truly up for grabs, reports ESPN.com. Ryan Mundy, Brock Vereen and M.D. Jennings also have taken snaps with the starters.

Chris Conte (shoulder) and Craig Steltz (groin) remain on the PUP list. If Conte comes back healthy, he'll be a favorite to start at free safety, the website said.


Giants shuffle cornerbacks
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Giants waived/injured cornerback Travis Howard with a knee injury and signed corner Chandler Fenner, who spent last season on the Seahawks' IR with a knee injury.

'Pretty even workload' expected for Saints' top 3 backs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Saints have at least a three-headed monster at running back, with Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson expected to receive significant snaps. Then there's pass-catching back Travaris Cadet. 

ESPN's Saints reporter, Mike Triplett, expects "a pretty even workload between the Saints' top three running backs, with Thomas playing more of the nickel/third-down role now that Darren Sproles has been traded away. But it's always possible that the Saints could stick with the hot hand as the season goes along."


Cowboys sign Ken Boatright
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Already thin on the defensive line, the Cowboys signed end Kenneth Boatright to a two-year deal. Boatright was released by the Seahawks in June.
