Every offseason there is a significant number of players on the move. Keeping track of these trades and free-agent signings is a vital part of fantasy football research. Knowing how players will perform on new teams can give you a huge edge on draft day. With training camps and preseason still ahead, there is plenty of time to get a feel for how these newcomers will fare in 2023. However, many drafts are already underway.

Recent news emerged that Jimmy Garoppolo failed his physical with the Raiders, and now there is uncertainty about his immediate future. At best, Garoppolo can post similar numbers to Derek Carr. However, Garoppolo is even more of a game manager. Plus, it won't be as easy for Davante Adams to post his usual stellar numbers. Overall, this is a downgrade for...
