Drew Lock QB (DEN)

Drew Lock Agrees to rookie deal: Lock signed his rookie contract Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Our take: The Broncos and Lock were at an impasse as recently as Tuesday, but the two sides agreed to workout bonuses in 2021 and 2022, getting the signal-caller in the house for the start of training camp. He'll kick off his career behind veteran Joe Flacco , with his second-round status giving Lock a good shot to make his presence felt early as a professional.

Lock isn't currently being drafted in fantasy drafts right now.

Jimmy Garoppolo QB (SF)

Jimmy Garoppolo Works on mechanics: Garoppolo (knee) has been working with noted QB throwing guru Tom House, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Fantasy impact: Garoppolo, who is bouncing back from a torn left ACL that he suffered last September, has plenty on his plate in terms or rehab and recovery, but the hope is that working with House can help improve the QB's mechanics heading into the 2019 campaign. Wagoner adds that Garoppolo told him Monday that he's hopeful in terms of being fully cleared to go at the start of training camp later this month. With that in mind, the 49ers' franchise signal caller indicated "I'm able to do pretty much everything now."

Up until now, Jimmy Garoppolo has been drafted at the 12.05 in PPR leagues.

Watch out to see if Garoppolo's value changes in light of this update.

Alex Smith QB (WAS)

Alex Smith Sheds external fixator: Smith recently had the external fixator removed from his broken leg,'s Kevin Patra reports.

Fantasy impact: Nearly eight months after he suffered his devastating injury, Smith finally is able to shed the device that allowed his leg to heal properly. He won't be ready for football in 2019, but he's been clear about his desire to eventually resume playing. Meanwhile, Washington is set to host a three-way quarterback battle between Case Keenum, Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy (leg).

Smith isn't currently being drafted in fantasy drafts right now.

Dak Prescott QB (DAL)

Dak Prescott Discussing new contract: Prescott and the Cowboys exchanged initial extension offers before the end of the team's offseason program, Jori Epstein of USA Today reports.

Our take: Prescott and Amari Cooper are entering contract seasons, while Ezekiel Elliott is under team control through 2020 thanks to the fifth-year option for first-round picks. The young quarterback said it's viable for each player to rank near the top of his position in contract value, noting how the NFL salary cap consistently has risen in recent years (six straight seasons with an increase of at least $10 million). Prescott is correct in his belief, but that doesn't mean it will be an easy process to figure out the details of the respective contracts. The Cowboys didn't have any holdouts from mandatory minicamp in June.

Up until now, Dak Prescott has been drafted at the 11.11 in PPR leagues.

Watch out to see if Prescott's value changes in light of this update.
