Barring new contracts before Monday’s deadline, a slew of high profile players will receive the franchise tag from their respective teams.
The Seahawks are expected to be well over the salary cap, and a large chunk of that cash might be reinvested to patch up a dearth of contract players at running back, defensive end and linebacker.

A running log of NFL Week 16 from a fantasy perspective.
Congratulations to those of you who lived to fight another day in fantasy football, thanks to some strong performances from Marshawn Lynch, Steven Jackson, and even Brandon Lloyd, who had a decent outing. But for some of you, it just wasn’t enough.

In this week’s Fantasy Feedback: The Broncos aren’t throwing it, the Lions and Ravens aren’t running it and no one knows exactly what the Redskins are doing.
With so many byes and injuries, running back roulette was a common theme in fantasy football this week, leading to several pretty big fantasy faux pas moments.
