Free Agent Index: Monitor the Moves

Mario Puig

Mario is a Senior Writer at RotoWire who primarily writes and projects for the NFL and college football sections.

This article is meant to keep tabs on the 2018 free agent class, with the players sorted first by position, then in a descending subjective order of general player value. The factors going into that are mostly considerations of age, production, and to a lesser extent, prospect pedigree. There is also a grid at the bottom detailing each team's offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator to provide fuller context for each team's respective personnel going forward.

2/2 update: In an attempt to make this article your one-stop venue for tracking all player movement this offseason, including the incoming rookie class, we'll also list here our content relating to the analysis of the 2018 rookies in dynasty and redraft leagues. Click here to read my dynasty rankings for the rookies (18 QBs, 40 RBs, 56 WRs, 20 TEs). Click here to read a three-round dynasty rookie mock draft conducted by John McKechnie and I.

Shifting back to the veterans: the list is designed to be somewhat comprehensive, especially regarding quarterbacks and skill position players anyone at the positions typically relevant for fantasy football, in other words so there will be plenty of uninteresting names on the list. But even the signing of a Mark Sanchez type can perhaps lend some insight into a team's assessment of its current roster, so we'll try to consider as much as possible, though occasionally taking the liberty of omission. Restricted free agents of note will be listed after the unrestricted list for a given position.

Updates will come in the form of signings and tags of course, but also more ambiguous developments like team visits, and even rumors in some cases if the reporting is from a particularly reliable source. News blurbs will be dated and otherwise listed in descending chronology.
