The Detroit Lions want to sign wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown to a long-term contract extension this offseason and are scheduled to meet with his representatives at the NFL scouting combine this week in Indianapolis. No deal is imminent, but the Lions have made it clear they want to invest in St. Brown and the rest of their roster this offseason. Detroit is also prioritizing getting a new deal done with quarterback Jared Goff. St. Brown, entering his fourth NFL season, is in line for a multi-year extension that will make him one of the highest-paid receivers in the league. He tied for second in the NFL with 119 catches in 2023 and finished third with 1,515 receiving yards t earn first-team All-Pro honors. St. Brown will be a top-five fantasy wideout in 2024 fantasy drafts without a doubt.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice continued his recent muted postseason run with six catches (eight targets) for 39 yards, but his team was still able to bring home their third Super Bowl ring in the last four seasons in Sunday's 25-22 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. After an electric performance during Super Wild Card Weekend, the 2023 second-rounder failed to reach the 50-yard marker in any of his past three playoff games. It ends a very promising rookie campaign with a bit of a whimper, but Rice cemented himself as quarterback Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 wideout this year. The Chiefs' offseason moves may have something to say regarding Rice's 2024 fantasy draft outlook, however, as it's abundantly clear they need to add a more credible downfield threat into the picture despite Mecole Hardman Jr.'s Super Bowl LVIII heroics. For now, Rice belongs in top-12 conversations at the WR position in way-too-early rankings.
