Final Free Agent Landing Spot Predictions
As of the time I'm writing this, NFL free agency is set to start on Tuesday, but we will see if that holds. This is the last of a series of posts @fantasy.football.analyst and I have done where we try and predict the landing spots of some of the most notable “Fantasy-Relevant” free agents. We each have separate write ups for it, so go check out his page to see what he had to say about each player.
Philip Rivers: There have been a lot of rumors of Rivers landing in Indianapolis, and I think it's a perfect fit. He needs the benefit of good offensive line, and the Colts have that. It would also be the first time in his career he had a true home field advantage.
Derrick Henry: After cutting Dion Lewis, it appears the Titans are planning to pay last year's rushing and touchdown leader, which I think is a mistake. You can't commit that much money to a running back, but I think they do it.
Jordan Howard: I wrote last week how the Bills might land Carlos Hyde, I think Howard would also be a great fit for the physical imposing running back to compliment Devin Singletary.
Jason Witten: I could see the Titans landing Jason Witten. He's from there, played college there, and I think his leadership and run blocking ability would be a great fit in Tennessee.
Robby Anderson: I think the Jets try to keep him. He's a great vertical threat that helps to open up the rest of the passing game. I also don't see a huge market for him outside of New York.
Eric Ebron: The Bears swung and missed with tight end Trey Burton, and while I don't think Ebron is much of an upgrade, I do think he could be a helpful red zone presence.
Randall Cobb: The Packers should bring him back. Rogers would love it, they need help in the slot, and he wouldn't demand a high price tag.
Lesean McCoy: Doug Pederson is not going to leave free agency without signing another veteran running back. We've seen it time and time again. I think that running back this year is McCoy. He already knows the system and would be a nice backup to Miles Sanders.
