Decker Lands in Tennessee
Eric Decker - WR, Tennessee Titans

Eric Decker signed a one-year contract with the Titans on Sunday.

Dynasty Analysis

So Decker joins Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews and Delainie Walker as the top targets of Marcus Mariota.  On top of helping Mariota's short term dynasty outlook, the move locks in Decker as a solid WR3 for at least 2017.  Owners of the 30-year old wide out should see the landing spot as a positive.  For at least one more season, he remains a reliable vet for contenders seeking depth on the perimeter.

Colts place Christine Michael on IR
Christine Michael - RB, Indianapolis Colts

The Colts have placed Christine Michael on IR.

Dynasty Analysis

Michael reportedly went down with an injury earlier this week and it's obviously not good. He was starting to generate the patended "C-Mike Hype" in the first two days, then everything went South as it usually does. Michael should be on the waiver wire.

Floyd violated terms of house arrest
Michael Floyd - WR, Minnesota Vikings

Michael Floyd has violated his house arrest by reportedly testing positive for alcohol as many as five times last week.

Dynasty Analysis

Floyd is conteding the positive tests are a result of drinking herbal tea.  However, I've never gone out to Chinese Food and been cut off the tea pot because they were afraid I'd had too much and couldn't get behind the wheel.  Still, Floyd will reportedly get his day in court back in Arizona in late June.  If he can't convince the judge these tests were from a supposed bad batch of Earl Grey, he could be headed back to jail.  If he does indeed go back and the Vikings release him, it's time to cut bait on Floyd.  If he stays on the roster, he's likely a bottom feeder roster hold at best - this just isn't good news at all.

Jets release Eric Decker
Eric Decker - WR, Tennessee Titans

The New York Jets have released wide receiver Eric Decker.

Dynasty Analysis

Barring a veteran addition, the Jets will now go into the season with no receiver having more than 1,200 career receiving yards.  Quincy Enunwa and ArDarius Stewart will presumably be the starters on an offense that promises to be one of the worst in football. Defenses will stack the box against Matt Forte and Bilal Powell and dare the Jets to beat them through the air. As for Decker, he'll have a chance for a fresh start and should recoup his value with the Ravens, Eagles, Browns, Bills or another team.  Stay tuned there.

Maclin Chooses Ravens
Jeremy Maclin - WR, Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens and Jeremy Maclin have agreed to a two-year contract. 

Dynasty Analysis

Maclin was cut in what was reported to be a salary dump by the Kansas City Chiefs and then made the rounds, choosing the Ravens over the Bills and others. Baltimore sorely needed help at the receiver position after ignoring it through free agency and the NFL Draft. Maclin will have a chance to be the go to option for Joe Flacco, potentially ahead of Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman. Both of the incumbent wideouts could see a slight ding in their dynasty value, while Malcin will have the chance to regain some of the value he lost with a disappointing 2016.

Ravens release Dennis Pitta
Dennis Pitta - TE, FA

The Ravens have released tight end Dennis Pitta with an injury setttlement.

Dynasty Analysis

Pitta suffered what many believe to be a career-ending hip injury last week in camp. It's a tough break for a talented but oft-injured player.  The Ravens now have the uninspiring cast of Ben Watson, Crockett Gillmore, Maxx Williams and Darren Waller at the position.  Watson looks to be the best of the bunch but this is a team tight end position to avoid in dynasty leagues.  As for Pitta, he can be safely dropped.

Tyreek Hill to be Chiefs WR1
Tyreek Hill - WR, Kansas City Chiefs

Tyreek Hill is at the top of the depth chart in Kansas City after the release of Jeremy Maclin.

Dynasty Analysis

Some dynasty owners are going crazy over this news but some brake pumping should be applied. There are now some questions moving forward about just how the Chiefs will use Hill. Very few teams unleash their best wide receiver on kick and punt returns and if those are limited, scoring opportunities for Hill could be diminished. The relase of Maclin moves the needle up for Hill without question but owners suddenly thinking they have a clear WR1 on their dynasty rosters could be disappointed.  Patrick Mahomes is likely still a ways away and Alex Smith is still going to be at the helm.  Combine that with the fact Hill is going to face the opposition's top corner each week and still has some character concerns and you have a player who could be overvalued this Summer.

Ravens want Decker over Maclin?
Eric Decker - WR, Tennessee Titans

The Ravens may be more inclined to sign Eric Decker than pursue Jeremy Maclin.

Dynasty Analysis

The Ravens are clearly in the market for another wide receiver and at this point it would be surprising if they don't end up with one of the two.  Maclin is reportedly visiting Baltimore today and it will be interesting to see if they attempt to stall and see if the Jets release Decker after chancing them not finding a trade partner. The risk there is seeing the Jets actually find someone willing to trade for Decker and seeing Maclin sign with the Eagles, Bills or another interested team.  Regardless, the Baltimore depth chart at receiver is likely in flux.  Maclin, Decker and any Ravens receiver is a "hold" until this shakes out.

Jets to release or trade Eric Decker
Eric Decker - WR, Tennessee Titans

The Jets have informed Eric Decker he will either be traded or released this week.

Dynasty Analysis

The Jets are in full blow-up mode. With the imminent move with Decker, they will have let go of David Harris, Nick Mangold, Brandon Marshall, Darrelle Revis and a whole host of others.  Decker could fare better in a different place so we'll reserve judgment on his value for the moment.  However, it may force Jeremy Maclin to choose a team sooner rather than later since the same teams will likely be interested in Decker should he be waived.  The Jets are going to have one of the worst offenses in the league and will have a depth chart featuring the likes of Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, ArDarius Stewart, Jalin Marshall and Chad Hansen.  Sam Darnold may be looking for a home in New York soon.

Mike Williams dealing with herniated disc
Mike Williams - WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Mike Williams is going to miss the rest of OTAs with a herniated disc in his back.

Dynasty Analysis

This injury is considered relatively minor, though any back injuries are concerning.  Williams has yet to do anything on the field since being taken at #7 overall.  This is no time to panic, however it would certainly be nice to see him getting reps and other receivers are getting valuable time to keep him down on the depth chart.  Williams and Dalvin Cook have been in a battle all Spring to be the 5th rookie taken in rookie drafts - this could be the tipping for some owners to take Cook over Williams.
