Stewart under contract through 2018 On Friday, the team announced the one-year extension of running back Jonathan Stewart, locking him in through 2018. Stewart, 30, has battled injuries often throughout his lengthy career but rushed for 824 yards and nine touchdowns last season and was a Pro-Bowler in 2015. (Charlotte Observer) FF Today's Take: Stewart was set to count over $8 million against the cap so the extension will likely lessen that number plus add another year of control for the Panthers. Carolina is said to be in the running back market and could select Leonard Fournette with the 8th overall pick.

Cam Newton: Newton is slated to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder on March 30, Max Hanson of the Panthers' official site reports. Visit RotoWire.com for more analysis on this update.
Mar 21 4:05pm FFToday: Fantasy Football News
Shoulder surgery planned for March 30th Cam Newton will have surgery on a partially torn rotator cuff on March 30 in Charlotte. Head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion told Panthers.com that Newton will begin a preliminary throwing program 12 weeks after the surgery. The team website maintained that he will be ready for the start of training camp, and Vermillion said Newton can throw with the team 16 weeks after surgery if everything goes as planned. (Charlotte Observer) FF Today's Take: Newton originally injured his shoulder back in December and the team took a wait-and-see approach, hoping the injury would heal in the off-season with rehab. His timetable should allow him to throw at the end of July, right around the time training camp begins.

Welcome to my Way Too Early Top-100 Fantasy Football rankings. We have finished up the first week of free agency so we have a pretty decent idea of who will be where in 2017. This is purely a ranking of the 2017 season only and not beyond, so we'll leave the dynasty talk to our boy, Matt Hayes. With the draft still on the horizon and plenty of time for injuries and off the field shenanigans, I'm guessing that this list is going to look a lot different come September. As always we can hash it out in the comments section (please let me know if you find a double).

$6 million deal fully guaranteed The quarterback-needy New York Jets finally added experience to their young depth chart, signing Josh McCown to a one-year contract on Monday night. The $6 million deal is fully guaranteed, a source said. (ESPN) FF Today's Take: The Jets are looking for a long-term solution at the quarterback position but currently don't have one. McCown (37) will provide veteran leadership to Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg but it's difficult to get excited about the fantasy prospects of any QB on the Jets' roster.

In the early part of every NFL season, the fantasy football community holds their breath and hopes that their newly drafted players do not suffer one of those heartbreaking season-ending injuries.

Two-year deal The Oakland Raiders have agreed to a two-year contract with tight end Jared Cook, sources told ESPN on Thursday. The deal is valued at $12.2 million and includes a fully guaranteed first year of $5 million with an injury guarantee in the second, sources said. (ESPN) FF Today's Take: Cook was a key contributor to the Packers late last season and while QB Aaron Rodgers lobbied to have Cook return, he'll ultimately be wearing silver and black. He missed 6 games due to an ankle injury but had 13 catches, 182 yds and 2 TDs in the Divisional Playoff and Conference Championship games. He'll be on the TE2 radar in Oakland as the third receiving option behind Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.

Adrian Peterson era comes to an end The Vikings early Thursday morning signed former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray, and by doing so they likely closed the door on the Adrian Peterson era. Murray rushed for 2,278 yards and 20 touchdowns in his four years in Oakland, averaging 4.2 yards per carry. (Minneapolis Star Tribune) FF Today's Take: Murray was a solid performer in Oakland but was part of a three-man committee last season capping his fantasy upside. In Minnesota he'll fill Adrian Peterson's big back role while sharing snaps with Jerick McKinnon. Minnesota's offensive line is a weak point in there offense meaning Murray will do well to achieve RB2 status in 2017.
