The 2024 fantasy football season is officially here! With RotoViz TriFlex leagues and the Never-Too-Early Best Ball Tournament in full swing over at the FFPC, along with the Big Board and Little Board tournaments both launching on Underdog, it is a great time to be alive.

No matter what type of league we’re competing in, the exercise of researching each NFL team’s salary cap situation, draft capital, and potential needs can help us write a narrative of how we believe the offseason will play out across the league. As a general guideline, early in the offseason it is better to focus on the broad strokes while having the humility to understand that we will be wrong about many of the specifics. The hope is that having done the preparation we can react quicker to breaking news and be a step ahead of our competition when predicting what is coming next.

The 2024 offseason is already promising excitement. We have a deep rookie class headlined by Caleb Williams and Marvin Harrison Jr. (and the RotoViz team is here to help you get to know them all with the 2024 Prospect Guide, available for pre-order soon!) There is an impressive pool of free-agent running backs including Saquon Barkley and Austin Ekeler looking to take over new backfields. Justin Jefferson, Ja’Marr Chase, and Mike Evans are just a few names of the superstar wide receivers who will be looking for new contracts. While we don’t know how it will all shake out, one thing is certain: there will be no shortage of information for us to digest and react to in the coming months.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the first two parts of the series:

Caleb Williams, Justin Jefferson, a Blockbuster Trade, and the Uncertain Situations that Could Define 2024

Jayden Daniels or Drake Maye (or Caleb Williams) – Which Rookie QB Will Have Big-Time Upside in this Ascending Offense?

In Part 3 we will take a look at a team that has a ton of question marks heading into next season, with perhaps the most important being how their new coaching staff’s scheme will utilize the stars that are currently on the roster.

In 2023, we finally saw one of those bets pay off as Rashee Rice…...
