Greetings, Fools. During the long offseason without fantasy football, there's not much news to report until we get to NFL Draft time. So, in an effort to keep track of the ever-shifting landscape of NFL rosters, we'll keep a running tally of all the free agent moves, trades and cuts that could have an impact on the 2013 fantasy football season.
We won't cover players that re-sign with their current clubs, though. Just the moves that involve players being released from, or swapping, teams.
As of March 2, here are the moves that matter:
Alex Smith, Chiefs -- Though not yet official, 49ers fans won't have him to kick around anymore.
Michael Turner -- No longer much of a burner, released by the Falcons in a salary cap move.
Titus Young -- Troubled but talented speedster signed by Rams after being released by the Lions. Alas, his stay in St. Louis was short-lived.
