Roster turnover is rampant in the NFL and, as usual, a considerable number of offseason moves affected the fantasy landscape. Below is a breakdown of the roster additions with the biggest fantasy implications for all 32 teams, along with each player's 2019 statistical projection.
JUMP TO A TEAM:
AFC East: BUF | MIA | NE | NYJ
AFC North: BAL | CIN | CLE | PIT
AFC South: HOU | IND | JAX | TEN
AFC West: DEN | KC | LAC | OAK
NFC East: DAL | NYG | PHI | WSH
NFC North: CHI | DET | GB | MIN
NFC South: ATL | CAR | NO | TB
NFC West: ARI | LAR | SF | SEA
2019 projection: 325-of-520 passing, 3,726 yards, 23 TD, 15 INT; 98 carries, 542 yards, 4 rushing TDs
The No. 1 overall pick in April's draft, Murray is a near-lock to be under center for Arizona come Week 1. The dual-threat quarterback averaged an FBS-record 11.6 yards per pass attempt while adding 1,001 rushing yards at Oklahoma last season. Even if he struggles as a passer out of the gate (as rookies often do), history suggests quarterbacks who make significant contributions with their legs can have fantasy relevance as rookies. Murray's pedigree and upside make him worth a late-round flier.
2019 projection: 27 touches, 116 yards, 1 TD
Atlanta didn't give us much to work with, but fifth-round pick Ollison is an intriguing sleeper. Devonta Freeman is atop the depth chart but has missed action each of the past two seasons, including playing only 64 snaps in 2018. Tevin Coleman left in free agency, leaving Ollison to compete for No. 2 duties with Ito Smith, who struggled to 3.5 yards per carry (1.5 after contact) and a position-worst 5.6 yards per reception last season. Ollison is a huge back (6-foot-1, 228 pounds) who offers little as a receiver but could do damage in fantasy as an early-down and goal-line thumper. He'll be a hot add if Freeman gets injured again.
Ravens get their lead RB in Ingram
Adam Schefter discusses Mark Ingram's intention to sign a three-year contract with the Ravens to become the lead back in Baltimore.
2019 projection: 229 carries, 1,014 yards, 7 TDs; 29 receptions, 217 yards, 1 TD
Ingram signed on as Baltimore's lead back following eight seasons with the Saints. Ingram ranks first in yards per carry (4.73) and second in yards after contact per attempt (2.10) among backs with 650-plus carries over the past six seasons. The 29-year-old has also been a force near the goal line (second in the league with 39 rushing touchdowns over the past five seasons). As the feature back in the league's most run-heavy offense, Ingram has a chance to clear his previous career high of 230 carries set in 2017, though his receiving contributions figure to be limited.
