The Biggest Offseason Transactions

It was a busy offseason for the NFL. Along with adding a new squad of rookies and another spin on the coaching carousel, plenty of veterans found new homes. Here is a breakdown of the offseason transactions that matter most to fantasy.

Mike Glennon

Chicago Bears

Good news, Mike! You’re going to get a chance to start again in the NFL. This time with a rebuilding Chicago Bears organization. Bad news Mike! They decided to trade up to draft a QB with the second overall pick. It’s hard to imagine that Glennon doesn’t start Week 1 for the Bears as they groom Mitch Trubisky. Neither should be on your radar in standard fantasy leagues. Glennon has some appeal in 2QB formats, but ideally, you’d want to avoid this situation, especially early in the season.

Marshawn Lynch

Oakland Raiders

Welcome back, Beast Mode! All the guy needed was a year off to go ride camels and rediscover his love of the game. When we last saw Lynch, he seemed to be slowing down. Seattle’s offensive line didn’t help the situation, but he had certainly lost something. He’ll attempt to rediscover his stride behind one of the better offensive lines in the league. The offense is loaded with weapons, so scoring opportunities should be plentiful.

Eric Decker

Tennessee Titans

Decker and the fantasy world breathed a sigh of relief when the veteran was released by the Jets. The red-zone killer is now a Titan. An offense piloted by Marcus Mariota who has some of the best red-zone stats in the league. Before you hit the "Buy" button keep in mind the Titans have several other serviceable ground and air weapons. Even with Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker taking away targets, Decker is a solid option at the right price.

Martellus Bennett

Green Bay Packers

Bennett is coming off a career-high TD total (seven) and now finds himself paired with Aaron Rodgers. Not a bad spot for the veteran, but Green Bay has struggled to get consistent production from the position over the past few seasons. Even though he will have to compete for targets with some of the best receivers in the league, he should still be able to a solid TE1.
