Although the 2023 NFL season has yet to kick off, fantasy football has become a year-round spectacle. With the enormous growth of dynasty football leagues, it is never too early to think about next season and beyond. Our 2023 NFL Contract Year Players lists all the fantasy-relevant players who are set to hit free agency next spring.

Many think players are primed to perform their best when playing for a lucrative multi-year deal. Of course, some are also looking to just extend their career for one final run.

The 2024 free-agent class is a mixed bag from a fantasy football perspective. There are some big running backs playing on one-year deals hoping to stay healthy and break the bank next spring. However, the lack of depth at receiver and tight end could result in some polarizing contracts.

Here are the fantasy-relevant free agents ahead of the 2023 NFL season.
