Fantastic impact: Watson has fought a legal battle with more than 20 women who have accused him of sexual harassment or misconduct, and the NFL will soon begin the hearing process to decide what repercussions Watson will have. He’s settled most of his cases, and he’s yet to be found guilty in the others, but that doesn’t matter to the NFL. It seems likely that he will receive some sort of suspension, but to what extent is up in the air and will be decided soon.

Dalton Schultz and Cowboys ‘distant’ on contract extension
According to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, the Dallas Cowboys and TE Dalton Schultz “are very far apart right now” when it comes to a contract extension. Gehlken writes that “the talks should take on new life to culminate in a contract”. (Source: Yahoo Sports)
Fantastic impact: Shultz broke out last season with 78 receptions, 808 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns. Those numbers were good enough for Schultz to finish the 2021 season as a TE3 in standard, half-PPR and PPR formats. The Cowboys placed a franchise tag on Schultz earlier this offseason, but the fourth-year TE made it clear he wanted a long-term contract. Schultz skipped the team’s voluntary OTAs due to frustrations with the contract negotiation process, but showed up for June’s mandatory minicamp in a sign he won’t stick if a contract extension isn’t held. achievement. Schultz is currently ranked TE6 by FantasyPros ECR and is being drafted as a fifth-round pick by Underdog ADP. The Cowboys offense has a significant amount of vacated targets with the departure of Amari Cooper and Schultz could be the main beneficiary with defenses likely to hit WR CeeDee Lamb.

Jimmy Garoppolo recovery ‘on schedule’, set to start rolling soon
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo’s recovery from offseason shoulder surgery is on schedule and he should start throwing in a few weeks. (Source: ESPN)
Fantastic impact: It’s no secret that the 49ers are expected to trade Garoppolo and hand the keys to the offense to 2nd-year QB Trey Lance in 2022. However, Garoppolo’s offseason surgery reportedly froze his trade market as teams don’t want to trade for a QB who is recovering from surgery and it’s unclear if the injury could have any lingering effects. Once Garoppolo starts throwing and passes a physical, it’s likely his trade market will pick up. The Seahawks and Panthers are two teams rumored to be in the QB market, but the 49ers are unlikely to trade Garoppolo within the division and send him to Seattle, making the Panthers the likeliest destination. for the veteran QB. Another Black Horse business partner could be the Cleveland Browns if Deshaun Watson is suspended for the 2022 season. The Browns have a playoff-caliber roster, so if they think Garoppolo is a better option than Jacoby Brissett, then he’s possible that they make a move for Garoppolo as a one-year rental. Garoppolo functioned as QB2 in fantasy when healthy, but his fantasy value for 2022 will depend on his recovery and where he plays.
