Personnel overhaul going on in Carolina

The #Panthers aren’t done adding on offense, agreeing to terms with WR D.J. Chark on a 1-year deal, sources say. A complete remake of the Carolina offense is underway, and Chark will be a big part. As will their new rookie QB. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Another small, one-year deal for a wide receiver. Given the personnel overhaul going on in Carolina, Chark is likely to find himself in the starting lineup opposite Adam Thielen. The Panthers currently hold the No.1 draft pick and are expected to have a rookie quarterback which will make Chark a volatile fantasy asset but he should have some flex appeal in 2023.

$3.25 million

Former Patriots’ WR Nelson Agholor is signing a one-year, $3.25 million deal that also includes incentives with the Baltimore Ravens, per sources. @Schultz_Report initially reported agreement between the two sides. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Agholor has been a role player in New England finishing as the WR101 and WR89 in PPR leagues the last two seasons. The Ravens run-heavy offensive scheme doesn’t provide a lot of fantasy opportunities at the wide receiver position making this a tough landing spot for Agholor. He’s off the fantasy radar for now.

KJ Hamler undergoes surgery for torn pec

Injury Could be ready for the start of training camp

#Broncos WR KJ Hamler recently underwent surgery after suffering a partially torn pec while training on his own, per sources. The recovery timeline is four to six months, giving Hamler a chance to be ready right around the start of training camp in late July. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Hamler has dealt with numerous injuries (ACL, hip) in his young career that have limited him to just 10 games played the last two seasons. The Broncos have been rumored to be shopping both starting receivers (Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton) but it seems unlikely they would move them. Hamler’s deep injury history will have him off the fantasy radar until he proves he can stay on the field.

Jets trade Elijah Moore to Cleveland

Jets also give up 3rd-round pick, Browns get 2nd-round pick

Compensation: Jets are trading Elijah Moore and their 3rd-round pick to the Browns for their 2nd-round pick, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: It’s possible the Jets could use the newly acquired 2nd round pick from the Browns in an Aaron Rodgers deal. Cleveland has been looking to add a receiver this off-season, kicking the tires on Mecole Hardman among others. They end up with Moore who wasn’t a focal point of the Jets offense last season, finishing with a 37-446-1 line in 16 games. He should slot in next to Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones in the Browns three-wide receiver sets.
