The original content and analysis produced by the PFR staff during the past week:
- The regular season is complete, which means that the start of free agency and the new league year are right around the corner. With that in mind, Zach Links published the second edition of PFR’s 2017 Free Agent Power Rankings, a comprehensive top 10 of players hitting the market next spring (sorted by guaranteed money). Kirk Cousins, Chandler Jones, and Kawann Short top the list.
- With six clubs now conducting head coaching interviews, the news regarding those vacancies can be difficult to follow. Keep things organized with PFR’s 2017 Head Coaching Search Tracker, which will keep tabs on every opening, potential candidates, and interviews.
- As the offseason progresses, PFR will assess each team by examining the top three needs on each respective roster. Connor Byrne kicked things off last week, taking a look at the Buffalo Bills, Tyrod Taylor, the club’s defensive struggles, and the weak receiving corps.
- In the latest entry in PFR’s The Beat series, Zach talked Vikings with Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Topics discussed include Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater, Adrian Peterson, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Terence Newman.
