Free agency is one of my favorite parts of football. This is probably because my favorite team never seems to be in the playoffs so I guess it gives me a false sense of hope going into the next season. A couple of needs get fulfilled with players that I haven’t seen play in the Buccaneer’s system and all of a sudden I can argue them into the playoffs in my head. The Jaguars also always look like they’ve built a dangerous roster in the offseason, and then we remember by week 2 that Blake Bortles is still the quarterback.
Free agency answers a lot of questions for fantasy football as well. Every year, the beginning of March changes the destiny of at least a few players that might be question marks in keeper leagues. Just because the player takes the biggest check doesn’t mean that they are putting themselves in the best position to put up their best possible individual numbers. I’m going to do my best to decipher the first week of signings and trades right here. This was a busier year than last year for the skill positions as far as I remember, so if I forget someone you wanted to read about, forgive me. Let’s get started with one of the fastest players in football…Please, blog, may I have some more?
