In the latest episode of The Fantasy Footballers Podcast, Andy, Mike, and Jason dug into 2019 NFL Free Agency. The guys take the time to talk about the top free agents at each position and which landing spot might benefit those free agents the most in fantasy football. This show lends itself to Dynasty players, you start to see players that might have real opportunity to grow in 2019 that you may be able to buy low right now before the hype starts. Free Agency officially opens on March 13.

In case you missed it, the Ballers also have a Free Agent Tracker that you should bookmark to follow along with Free Agency 2019.

The first thing discussed is the difference between Restricted Free Agents and Unrestricted Free Agents. Restricted means that the original team has an opportunity to get a player back before they sign elsewhere. When a player is Unrestricted, they can sign wherever they want, whenever they want.

Other names worth keeping an eye on: Jay Ajayi, TJ Yeldon (Nice fit for New Orleans), Jalen Richard (Both Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin are also free agents, Richard seems likely to return to a bigger role), Mike Davis (His departure opens things up for Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny), LeGarrette Blount (Kerryon Johnson time in Detroit), and whoever Kansas City signs.

Tight Ends

Teams that may be looking for TEs: BUF, CIN, DAL, DEN, DET, GB, JAX, NE, NO, OAK

There aren’t any TEs really set to make a splash in free agency but there are a few to keep an eye on. Cameron Brate may be cut, he could make an impact elsewhere but his departure helps OJ Howard’s value a lot. Demetrius Harris could be solid if he lands in the right spot. Tyler Eifert is going to be available, assuming he doesn’t get hurt in the parking lot on the way to the meeting. Whichever TE signs in Cincinnati could have a big fantasy impact as well.
