Brian Hill, RB | TEN

Titans signed RB Brian Hill, formerly of the Falcons.

Hill is coming off a career year in Atlanta. With Todd Gurley eroding in real time, Hill was given 100 carries on the year and ran for 465 yards plus a lone touchdown. He also posted 25 receptions for 199 yards despite starting just one game. Hill has the potential to be Derrick Henry's direct backup if he can surpass former third-round pick Darrynton Evans. As a rookie, Evans only appeared in five games and saw just 14 carries. Hill is now worth a shot in the final rounds of deep leagues based on his chance at gaining a massive role if anything were to happen to Henry. He'll spend most of his time on the bench as long as Henry is healthy, though.

Darren Fells, TE | DET

Lions signed TE Darren Fells, formerly of the Texans.

Fells was brought into Detroit on a visit just before Josh Hill announced his retirement. That left the Lions with a thinner tight end room than expected and Fells is coming off a solid two years in Houston. He posted a 55-653-11 line during his tenure with the Texans, serving as both a red zone weapon and a blocker. He'll likely slot in as the backup to T.J. Hockenson and could see the field in 2TE sets.

Chris Finke, WR | KC

Chiefs signed WR Chris Finke, formerly of the 49ers.

Finke was signed by the 49ers as a UDFA out of Notre Dame last year. He was waived before the season started and then signed to the practice squad. Finke was never elevated to the active roster at any point in his rookie season. He's a long shot to make the final roster in Kansas City. His only hope will be as a special teams contributor and as the team's fifth or sixth receiver.
