The Wide Receivers With New Teams Who May Outperform Their Draft Spots

Howdy Folks,

Welcome to Wednesday. I'm feeling pretty lucky today as 30 minutes after my daughter and I drove across the I-40 Bridge in Memphis, they shut it down after a large crack was discovered. #Dang.

We've got another big feature for you where we asked our Footballguys Staffers to break down players who've changed teams.

Finding the opportunities in these "What has changed?" situations can give you an edge over the GMs in your league who unlike you, are snoozing through May. It's one of the ways we'll help you with our goal - Helping You Win More At Fantasy Football.

It's a light news day but we've got a few news stories for you. Let's go.



A. The Most-Interesting Veteran WR on a New Team
Footballguys staffers discuss the top wide receivers who changed teams. They talk about Will Fuller V, John Brown, Marvin Jones Jr, and more.

1. GB - QB Aaron Rodgers engaged in talks

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' side has engaged in contract discussions with the Packers to a degree, and the Packers have made a significant long-term offer.

The Packers are doing what they can to make Rodgers happy. We'll see if this significant offer is what Rodgers wanted in the first place. Earlier reports speculated the team had offered an extension for Rodgers but that wasn't to his liking. The damage may already have been done by now, but Green Bay isn't going to just give up (nor should they). This saga continues until the Packers get him an offer he likes or they trade him away (if they do it would have to be after June 1st).

2. CHI - WR Allen Robinson king of the contested catch

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson has posted a league-high 47 contested catches since the start of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus.

That's what makes Robinson one of the best in the game. The Bears have Andy Dalton and rookie first-round pick Justin Fields competing for the starting job this offseason. No matter who is slinging the rock, the best plan is to target Robinson early and often. Robinson has a current ADP of WR11 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

New England Patriots fifth-round draft pick LB Cameron McGrone (knee) is still recovering from the torn anterior crucial ligament he suffered Nov. 21 while playing for the University of Michigan, and there is a possibility he will not see the field in 2021, according to comments made by head coach Bill Belichick.'We're not really sure what the expectation of availability is for him, but we're prepared certainly to not have him available this year. There are no false expectations here. He should have a good recovery and be a good player; we'll just have to see what the timing is on that,' Belichick said.

The Patriots clearly won't rush McGrone here. We should know more later this summer as we see how the recovery process goes for him.
