The Chiefs are trading WR Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins in exchange for the 29th overall pick of this year's draft, plus 2022 2nd- and 4th-round picks and 2023 4th- and 6th-rounders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hill will reportedly get a contract extension from Miami that will make him among the highest-paid WRs in the league. His fantasy value takes a hit with the move. He goes from QB Patrick Mahomes to QB Tua Tagovailoa and from a pass-heavy offense to what figures to be a more balanced offense under new Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel. Hill remains arguably the most electric playmaker in the NFL, though, and should garner a big target share in Miami. He's still a WR1. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are currently left with WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, Josh Gordon, Justin Watson, Cornell Powell and Corey Coleman. They figure to add to the group in free agency and/or the draft, but Smith-Schuster and Hardman gets sizable boosts with Hill's departure.

Update: Miami is giving Hill a 4-year, $120 million extension with $72.2 million guaranteed, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus. That $30 million per year puts Hill a couple million ahead of new Raider Davante Adams for highest-paid WR.

The Chiefs have given WR Tyreek Hill permission to seek a trade, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 2 sides have been working on a long-term deal, and Kansas City has reportedly made an offer that would make Hill 1 of the league's highest-paid WRs. But "talks have stalled," Rapoport says. The Dolphins have been among the most interested teams so far, Rapoport adds. We'd be surprised if the Chiefs let Hill get away but will certainly keep a close eye on the situation. In likely related news, Kansas City is hosting free-agent WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling on Wednesday.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets, "Jets and Dolphins are in serious talks to trade for Chiefs’ WR Tyreek Hill, per league sources. Hill and Chiefs are mulling what to do but Hill’s time in KC looks like it could be coming to an end."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Dolphins are expected to sign RB Raheem Mostert. The veteran RB, of course, played under new Miami HC Mike McDaniel in San Francisco, where McDaniel spent 2021 as OC after 4 seasons as run-game coordinator. We'll see about the plan for Mostert in a backfield that has already added RB Chase Edmonds in free agency. Mostert is going in the late rounds of early best-ball drafting, which gives him upside at a low-risk price. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's a 1-year, $3.25 million deal.

QB Teddy Bridgewater will be signing a 1-year deal with the Dolphins, according to multiple reports. He's expected to serve as QB Tua Tagovailoa's backup.

The Dolphins have agreed to a 3-year, $22.8 million deal with WR Cedrick Wilson, according to multiple reports. Wilson, who turned 26 in November, has seen his role increase each year. He garnered 61 targets in 2021, logging 4 starts thanks to Michael Gallup's injury. The new contract says he'll join Jaylen Waddle and DeVante Parker among Miami's top 3 at the position. With TE Mike Gesicki also back (franchise tag), Dolphins targets could be spread a little thin.

EPSN's Adam Schefter reports that WR Braxton Berrios is resigning with the Jets for $12 million over 2 years, with $7 million of that guaranteed. It's $4 million more than WR Isaiah McKenzie is getting from the Bills -- for whatever that's worth -- but it's not a great spot for Berrios' upside. Corey Davis and Elijah Moore figure to stand ahead of him in target distribution. Berrios' return should confirm that Jamison Crowder is moving on in free agency. Berrios isn't worth attention in any fantasy football drafts other than deep PPR formats.

RB Raheem Mostert is "making a full recovery and will be ready to play this season," agent Brett Tessler tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mostert is rehabbing a knee-cartilage injury and went for testing this week under Dr. Dan Cooper in Dallas. Mostert is set to hit free agency next week. There have been rumors of interest from both sides on him re-signing with the 49ers. Mostert is a low-risk shot late in current best-ball fantasy football drafts.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs have entered contract talks with WR Tyreek Hill. The 28-year-old is scheduled to count ~$21 million against the cap in 2022, a contract year. 2021 produced 1,239 yards and 9 TDs on a career-high 111 catches. He carries a Round 1 ADP in early best ball drafting.

In addition to the rumored nearing deal with WR Michael Gallup, the Cowboys also believe they can retain WR Cedrick Wilson in the wake of moving WR Amari Cooper and his contract. Like Gallup, Wilson is set to hit free agency this month. Wilson set career highs with 61 targets, 45 catches, 602 yards and 6 TDs in 2021, benefitting from Gallup losing half the season to injuries. If he does re-sign with Dallas, Wilson should be the front-runner for the #3 role -- likely settling in as the primary slot guy. Wilson spent 90% of his pass snaps in the slot last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Dolphins have agreed to terms with Mike McDaniel to become the team's next HC. McDaniel spent 2021 as San Francisco's OC after serving as the run-game coordinator the previous 4 seasons. McDaniel arrived with Kyle Shanahan, whom he had also worked under with the Falcons, Browns, Washington and Texans. McDaniel got his NFL start as an intern with the 2005 Broncos, coached by Mike Shanahan. So we should expect a strong Shanahan influence on McDaniel's offensive approach in Miami. He inherits an offense with QB Tua Tagovailoa heading into Year 3 and WR Jaylen Waddle coming off a terrific debut campaign. Plenty of questions need to be answered, though, with "TE" Mike Gesicki and multiple WRs facing free agency. The Dolphins also sport an unsettled backfield that found Duke Johnson leading in rushing yards per game last season. This will be an interesting offense to watch through the offseason, especially because McDaniel looks like a potential plus for the unit.

The Jets “really want to re-sign” WR Braxton Berrios, per beat writer Rich Cimini. Berrios, 26, came on strong late in the year, catching 5+ balls in 3 of his final 4 games. He even earned an All-Pro nod for his kick return performance. If the Jets bring back Berrios and move on from Jamison Crowder -- another free agent -- it’s possible the former carries some sleeper value into summer drafts. Of course, a lot will ride on the development of Zach Wilson -- 1 of Pro Football Focus' lowest graded passers of 2021.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. He was a full-go on Wednesday, limited on Thursday and full again on Friday. Hill should be ready to play his usual role this weekend.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) was downgraded to limited participation in Thursday's practice after being a full-go on Wednesday. We're guessing that Kansas City is just playing it safe ahead of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers, but we'll get another update on Hill on Friday afternoon.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He ended up playing just 14 snaps in Saturday's win over the Broncos after hurting his heel in warmups, but it looks like Hill will be back in his usual role in Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that he expects WR Tyreek Hill (heel) to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday night. That's not a surprise considering Hill played a bit last week after hurting that heel in pregame warmups. Hill clearly wasn't close to 100%, though, so his effectiveness this weekend is in question.

The Dolphins fired HC Brian Flores. This one was not expected. Flores lasted 3 seasons in Miami, compiling a 24-25 record. He won 19 games over the past 2 years, though, and seemed to have the Fins heading in the right direction. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Miami is retaining GM Chris Grier. "A power struggle in Miami," Rapoport tweeted. We'll see where the Dolphins go at HC.

Jets WR Braxton Berrios (quad) was placed on IR and is out for today’s game vs. the Bills. WR Jamison Crowder is back from his calf injury and should be New York’s top option in the passing game.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill hurt his right heel in warmups prior to Saturday's game vs. the Broncos. He ended up playing limited snaps and finishing with 1 catch for 2 yards. We'll look for updates on Hill's status and keep a close eye on his practice participation leading into next weekend's Wild Card game.

Jets WR Braxton Berrios (quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Bills after missing practice all week. WR Jamison Crowder (calf) practiced all 3 days, including a full workout on Friday, and isn't listed on the final injury report. Crowder will be back as the Jets' primary slot receiver on Sunday and is a lower-end option in PPR leagues.

The Broncos placed QB Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) on IR. It's confirmation that QB Drew Lock will start Saturday's finale vs. the Chiefs. Bridgewater is set to hit the free-agent market in March.
