The Chargers are "still very high" on RB Justin Jackson, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. The 2018 7th-rounder has struggled staying healthy even in a limited role over the past 2 seasons but has averaged a strong 5.1 yards per carry. Popper doesn't expect the Chargers to add an early-round back later this month to replace Melvin Gordon. If that's the case, Jackson could be in for a sneaky-big role behind undersized Austin Ekeler, who hasn't topped 132 carries in an NFL season.

The Chiefs have signed RB DeAndre Washington to a 1-year deal. The former Raider saw his most extensive action as a pro late last season with RB Josh Jacobs banged up over the final 4 games, taking 60 carries for 231 yards (3.9 YPC) and 2 TDs while adding 18 catches for 125 yards. He's averaging just 4.0 yards per carry for his career, though, and is best-suited for a change-of-pace role. That's what he figures to play in Kansas City. If this is all the Chiefs add to the backfield this offseason, RB Damien Williams is set up for big volume.

NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco believes Jerick McKinnon is in line to be the 49ers' passing-down back in 2020. "McKinnon gives the 49ers something they previously lacked: A legitimate route-runner and third-down option out of the backfield," Maiocco writes. "If he’s healthy, McKinnon will have a spot on the team." Injuries have prevented McKinnon from playing a single game for the 49ers since they signed him ahead of the 2018 campaign. But San Francisco restructured his deal this offseason and evidently still has plans for him. McKinnon caught 94 balls over his final 2 seasons in Minnesota. Maiocco adds that Matt Breida is the 49ers RB most likely to be off the roster come Week 1.

Bears GM Ryan Pace has said there's an "open competition" for the team's starting QB job, according to multiple reports. That's not surprising, given the quality of Mitchell Trubisky's play so far and the team's trade for Nick Foles. It's nice to hear the official word, though. We should either get a slight upgrade in Foles or a better-performing Trubisky in the Chicago offense in 2020. Either would mark a welcome change, with some intriguing talent in the skill-position group.

The Chiefs have agreed to a new 1-year deal with WR Sammy Watkins that pays $9 million in base salary with another $7 million available in incentives, according to Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star. The move saves Kansas City $5 million in 2020 cap space. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the deal also includes a no-trade clause. New contracts for Watkins and WR Demarcus Robinson hurt the 2020 outlook for last year's 2nd-round pick, Mecole Hardman. The youngster could be a value in dynasty trades this offseason, though. Neither Watkins nor Robinson is signed beyond 2020. Watkins, meanwhile, should remain K.C.'s #2 wideout.

The Cowboys on Wednesday night signed edge rusher Aldon Smith to a one-year deal. Smith hasn't played since 2015 because of NFL suspensions for both legal and drug issues but is reportedly seeking reinstatement. He racked up 14 sacks as a 49ers rookie way back in 2011 and then climbed to 19.5 in his 2nd season. Smith dealt with injuries and off-field issues over the next 3 seasons, last playing 9 games -- and tallying just 3.5 sacks -- with the 2015 Raiders. He'll turn 31 shortly after the 2020 season begins, so we'll see what Smith looks like whenever team workouts become possible again. If he approaches his early career form, there are certainly plenty of snaps available after DE Robert Quinn left to sign with the Bears. Smith's worth a stash in IDP dynasty leagues where possible.

The Lions have reached a 1-year deal with former Packers WR Geronimo Allison. ESPN reports that it's for just the league minimum, a fraction of the $2.8 million Allison commanded in the 1-year pact he signed with Green Bay last offseason. Despite playing all 16 games last season, Allison ranked just 6th among Packers in receptions. Barring injuries to others, Allison's high point in Detroit looks like the #4 role behind Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.

Former Eagles CB Ronald Darby has agreed to a 1-year, $3 million deal with Washington. That's a tiny contract for a 26-year-old former 2nd-round pick who has spent his whole career starting. But it signals that Darby couldn't find more than a "prove it" deal on the open market after losing 20 games to injury over his 3 seasons in Philly. Darby served as the Eagles' top corner when healthy and could become the same for Washington. That defense has traded away CB Quinton Dunbar and released CB Josh Norman this offseason. The current roster sports only 1 corner (Fabian Moreau) who played at least 50% of Washington's defensive snaps last season. Washington also signed CB Kendall Fuller in free agency. Barring an early NFL Draft pick at the position, Fuller, Moreau and Darby look like the new top 3 corners there. Philly, meanwhile, traded for Darius Slay to take over its top CB spot. The rest of the depth chart likely has some sorting left to do.

The Cowboys have signed K Greg Zuerlein to a 3-year, $7.5 million deal. The 32-year-old had a down 2019, connecting on just 73% of his FG attempts. But he'd drilled 86+% in each of the previous 3 seasons and is a prime bounce-back candidate in Dallas' high-powered offense.

The Chiefs have agreed to a 1-year deal to keep WR DeMarcus Robinson, ESPN reports. The 25-year-old must not have found much interest on the open market. He returns to an offense that has allowed him to increase receptions and yards per catch each of the past 3 years. Robinson will have trouble continuing that trend in WR Mecole Hardman's 2nd season, with Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins also still around. Robinson's return also complicates the outlook for Hardman. Robinson was still playing more snaps than the rookie in the playoffs. We'll take Hardman easily over Robinson in 2020 fantasy football drafts, though. The youngster's speed gives him much more fantasy-scoring upside.
