Patriots sign RB Jeremy Hill

Ankle injury limited Hill to 7 games last season

FF Today’s Take: Hill was a touchdown maker for the first three years of his career but failed to reach the endzone last season playing in only 7 games for the Bengals. The Patriots lost Dion Lewis (TEN) in free agency but still have James White, Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee meaning fantasy owners will be pulling their hair out each week trying to project touches for the New England backfield.

Ravens swap out Ryan Grant for Michael Crabtree

Three-year agreement

The Baltimore Ravens reached a three-year agreement with Michael Crabtree on Friday.

Terms weren’t disclosed but Crabtree received a three-year, $21 million deal, including $15 million in first two years and $11 million guaranteed ($7 million signing bonus), a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The deal could be worth up to $20 million in first two years. (ESPN)

FF Today’s Take: The Ravens had agreed with former Redskins’ receiver Ryan Grant on a four-year contract but Grant failed a physical due to a foot injury. However, Grant has since been cleared by an independent doctor leading to speculation that the Ravens simply preferred Crabtree over Grant once Crabtree became available. In any case, Crabtree should be the Ravens primary option on the outside after the Ravens released Jeremy Maclin. Mike Wallace led Baltimore in receiving last year and finished as the WR38 in PPR leagues.
