NFL transactions to know before your draft – 2019

Money from NFL transactionsDuring a draft you will inevitably pick a player and notice they’re not on the team they were last year.  Be prepared.  It will happen at least once.  These are the NFL transactions you should know before you draft.

As I put this information together I learned about transactions that I missed during the off-season too.  Transactions usually include: trades, drops, and drafts.  As this site is for beginner fantasy football players, the list below has notable NFL transactions…ie. the “popular” names that most people have heard before.
