Dak Prescott (Quarterback)
Call it an open secret. Everyone knows that Prescott will stay with the Cowboys in 2021 with a possibility of further extending his contract with the team.
The quarterback ranked No. 2 in fantasy football last 2019 and No. 1 in points per game last season despite a short-lived season due to an ankle injury.
Expect Prescott to keep his Dallas jersey this 2021/22 NFL Season. At the time of this writing, Dallas is +2800 in Super Bowl LVI futures odds.
Cam Newton (Quarterback)
New England Patriots quarterback, Cam Newton is currently linked with the Washington Redskins. The 2021 NFL Free Agency can potentially reunite him with Ron Rivera and make instant headlines.
Since Washington areis shaky in the quarterback department, he can be an asset to the team, rotating or taking the place of Alex Smith and Taylor Heinicke. Should this materialize, Newton can up his value in 2021.
As Washington sits at +6000 in Super Bowl LVI futures odds, we might just see a slight shift to this number during the NFL free agency.
Aaron Jones (Running Back)
Aaron Jones can be a target for the Atlanta Falcons in this season’s NFL Free Agency. If the team can secure Jones, he can start to form exciting attacking tactics under new head coach Arthur Smith.
If the Falcons can work out a deal with the Green Bay Packers, Jones can maintain his standing as the No. 1 fantasy running back.
Despite Atlanta’s slow start in Super Bowl LVI futures odds at +5000, this can further amplify their chances to progress farther compared to last season.
Allen Robinson (Wide Receiver)
Allen Robinson is working out how he stands this transfer season, but it would be nice to see him integrate his skills with the Ravens.
Although this is quite a long shot for fans of the player who want to see him wearing a Ravens jersey, there are a few elements that make people think that it can work out for the better.
Furthermore, this also adds more to his fantasy value. As it stands, the Ravens are strong favorites to lift the Super Bowl LVI trophy, clinging onto +1200 futures odds.
Hunter Henry (Tight End)
The Jacksonville Jaguars Super Bowl LVI futures odds remain optimistic at +6600, but expect this to shift if the Hunter Henry transfer comes to life.
Henry playing with Trevor Lawrence, D.J. Chark, and Laviska Shenault makes for a more robust passing game for the Jaguars.
Only time will tell if the 2021 NFL Free Agency period can bring us this anticipated transfer.
