Here’s a short list for your fantasy football depth charts to consider: The most impactful free agents currently who could make an impact on a fantasy team this year. Once these guys are signed they should contribute in some capacity. But it may take a major injury to bring them onto a team.
And so, while this is highly likely to happen, expect these guys to get into a camp soon with the training camps opening today around the NFL.
As you may know, I love fantasy football rankings so here are the most likely candidates to into training camps or later on to also make your fantasy roster as a free agent
Top Ten Fantasy NFL/Fantasy Free Agents
I still believe this is an extremely good player to actually be out there as a free agent in the NFL. Last year he was on many Fantasy Rosters, and should be on Fantasy Roster depth charts this year as well, at least in deeper leagues. Barnidge had good streamer production as I believe he could jump into the 4th tier of Starting Fantasy TE’s holding up his end of starting caliber production in the top 12 on your fantasy team.
2. Colin Kaepernick
Have we seen the last of this running QB with the great arm? Hopefully unlikely as there are A LOT of QB injuries in this league, and I don’t see how he does not get one. It would not make any sense to me. He was starting for a lot of Fantasy teams last year as well, as I myself recommending starting him many times in leagues.
3. Ryan Clady
Ok, why is an OT on this list? Well, honestly because not that many guys are going to make much of a difference beyond this point, and since a plug in play Offensive Tackle is needed as well, with injuries on the table potentially for any team, Calady could solidify, indirectly a starting RB. Makes sense? If not, don’t worry. Express your comment though.
4. Ladarius Green
While it may be difficult for a team to trust him as a full time starter, Green may be able to fill in, in the right situation, even though he has never been able to prove himself healthy. In fact, the Chargers gave up on him as the replacement to Antonio Gates, with Hunter Henry, who looks like a top 10 Fantasy TE option. If Green was able to keep healthy, would things be different?
5. Anquan Bolden
As one of the best WR’s in NFL history, in terms of production in doing his thing, this former College QB, had a brilliant NFL career, from the start of his very first game, out of the gate as a star. Now does he have anything left, besides a mentor role as a player? As probably the best actual veteran option out there, that may be so.
6. DeAngelo Williams
Here’s a guy that could contribute. He has the ability to be useful as backup back, filling in, but probably not to the extend again that he did for Le’Veon Bell. His days are coming to an end and his being Picky about what team he signs with is self destructive. Any team that offers him something on a roster, he needs to go for.
7. Stevie Johnson
As a one time starter for the Bills and 49ers, this speedy WR does not seem to have what he once did as the cocky personality even some flashes of big play Chad Johnson like ability, but now he needs to find a spot on a roster, beating out someone much younger.
8. Larry Donnell
AS the third TE on this list, its getting harder to write about these guys, but Donnell could fit in somewhere as a veteran option, a surprised option whenever there is an injury.
9. Rashad Jennings
Jennings really seemed to bring the Giants rushing offense down, honestly. Not sure anyone will pick this guy up unless they are somewhat desperate with more than one injury at the position. But, it does happen.
10. Dan Carpenter
Yes even a kicker has a place on the FA list. Just for fun. Check out the huddle for more, although there’s not much there.
