Kizer named starter for third preseason game

23 August 2017

Coach Hue Jackson named DeShone Kizer the starter for the Browns' third preseason game. The third preseason game is the dress rehearsal for Week 1, so it's Kizer's job to lose. "He has made a lot of progress by investing the time necessary to learn our offense, working hard to improve on his fundamentals while also effectively moving the offense in preseason games," Jackson said. "Development is so important for a young quarterback, this is the next s ...

Prosise has groin injury; Seahawks concerned

22 August 2017

C.J. Prosise suffered a strained groin in pregame warmups ahead of the second preseason game. He's missed the past two practices, being limited to light running drills on a side field with trainers. Prosise working off to the side and missing practice has been a common sight in his year-plus with the team. And OL coach/run-game coordinator Tom Cable admitted the team is starting to get concerned Prosise will never be able to stay healthy for long periods of time. &qu ...

Matt Forte returns to full practice Tuesday

22 August 2017

Matt Forte (hamstring) returned to a full practice on Tuesday. He hadn't practiced since late last month. Forte will obviously be ready for Week 1 and hopes to take part in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants. Stuck in a committee with Bilal Powell and playing for one of the league's worst offenses, the 31-year-old's fantasy arrow is pointing down.

Browns release DL Desmond Bryant, save $3M

22 August 2017

Browns released DL Desmond Bryant. Bryant was in the final year of his contract. The move saves the Browns $3 million against the cap. It was pretty obvious Bryant wasn't long for the team after he played into the fourth quarter with deep reserves in Monday night's second preseason game. Entering his age-32 season, Bryant missed all of last year with a torn pectorals. He should be able to land another shot.

Odell Beckham's MRI confirms ankle sprain

22 August 2017

Odell Beckham's MRI confirmed a sprained ankle. The Giants haven't revealed all the details surrounding his injury, though it appears Beckham was able to avoid the dreaded high-ankle sprain. "We'll take it day by day and see how they respond to treatment," said coach Ben McAdoo, who was referring to both Beckham and Brandon Marshall (shoulder). Both players were injured in Monday night's preseason game against Cleveland.

Ty Montgomery (leg) back at practice Tuesday

22 August 2017

Ty Montgomery (leg) returned to practice on Tuesday. He's back after missing the last week with a lower leg injury. The former wide receiver is locked in as the Packers' lead back and seems to be going around the fourth round in 12-team leagues.

Gillislee back as full practice participant

22 August 2017

Mike Gillislee (hamstring) returned as a full participant at Tuesday's practice. A hamstring injury has kept Gillislee out for the past two weeks but he's ready to roll and eager to get his reps in with just 16 days until the regular season. There are no assigned roles in New England's crowded backfield, making it a difficult situation to predict for fantasy purposes. With that said, a healthy Gillislee would probably be the favorite for goal-line work in Foxboro, which ...

Matt Forte returns to team drills on Tuesday

22 August 2017

Matt Forte (hamstring) returned to team drills on Tuesday. He hadn't practiced since late last month. This gives Forte a little less than three weeks to dust off the cobwebs for Week 1. Stuck in a committee with Bilal Powell and playing for one of the league's worst offenses, the 31-year-old's fantasy arrow is pointing in the wrong direction.

Giants not worried about Marshall's shoulder

22 August 2017

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Giants aren't concerned about Brandon Marshall's shoulder injury. Rapsheet was told "he'll be fine" while adding that the Giants have "no worries." Marshall bowed out of Monday's preseason game with a shoulder issue but it's nothing serious. The G-Men dodged a couple of major bullets with Marshall and Odell Backham both escaping Monday night's game with minor injuries.

Deone Bucannon activated from PUP list

22 August 2017

Cardinals activated ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) from the active/PUP list. He's not ready to resume practicing but has been cleared to join the team for walkthroughs. The 2014 first-rounder still aims to be ready for Week 1.

Still no timeline for Andrew Luck's return

22 August 2017

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said there's still no "timeline" for Andrew Luck's (shoulder) return. Per Stephen Holder of the Indy Star, the Colts have just two practices next week and four the week after before heading off to Los Angeles for Week 1 against the Rams. That means that even if Luck is activated off PUP in the next week, he'll have just six practices to shake off the rust before the regular season gets underway. Simply put, Luck is running out of time. ...

Devonta almost done with concussion protocol

22 August 2017

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Devonta Freeman is in the "final stages" of the concussion protocol. He won't practice Tuesday but it looks like he could be ready any day now. Coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons, Freeman is a locked-in RB1 in all formats.

Bill O'Brien: Tom Savage 'is our starter'

22 August 2017

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Tom Savage "is our starter." "He's had a good camp," O'Brien added. It is not a surprise after Savage looked good in the second preseason game, but Deshaun Watson brings playmaking ability the offense sorely needs. The rookie is going to make starts at some point this season.

Pederson: Blount to be 'big part' of offense

22 August 2017

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said LeGarrette Blount will be "a big part of our offense." "The guy's a beast of a runner," the coach added. Despite preseason struggles, reported "weight issues," and rumblings about his roster spot, it looks like the coach plans to enter the season with Blount as his starter and short-yardage back. Perhaps that changes if Wendell Smallwood shows well coming off an injury this week, but Blount remains the best f ...

McDermott: Cordy Glenn on track for Week 1

22 August 2017

Bills coach Sean McDermott said LT Cordy Glenn (foot) is on track for Week 1. McDermott had expressed some concern about the lingering foot injury, but the Bills never took any real action to bolster the left tackle spot, suggesting they always expected Glenn to be on the field Week 1. Glenn will participate on a limited basis during Tuesday's practice.

Coach says Jordan Matthews will be ready Wk 1

22 August 2017

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Jordan Matthews (chest) is expected to be ready Week 1. After getting in limited work on Sunday, Matthews also expressed confidence he will be ready. Considering he was hurt during his first practice with the team, there is reason to worry about how integrated Matthews will be in the offense come Week 1, but Anquan Boldin's retirement means he should have the slot role all to himself. Despite the injury, Matthews is a value pick at his cu ...

John Ross will have limited early role

22 August 2017

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. expects No. 9 overall pick John Ross to have a limited role early in the season. Dehner expects the team to "create packages" for the speedster early while expanding his role as the season goes along. It is not surprising considering Ross sat out the entire offseason program and the first two-plus weeks of training camp. With Ross limited, Dehner expects sophomore Tyler Boyd to be the second most productive receiver be ...

Tyler Boyd will be Bengals' 2nd-best WR?

22 August 2017

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. expects sophomore Tyler Boyd to be the Bengals' second most productive wide receiver. With No. 9 overall pick John Ross in a limited role to start the season, Dehner thinks Brandon LaFell will get the official No. 2 designation, but he expects Boyd to be more productive. Ross' role is expected to grow as the season goes on, however, and A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert should dominate targets as long as they are healthy. Despite the ...

Rivera: Cam Newton on track to play Thursday

22 August 2017

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Cam Newton (shoulder) is on track to play Thursday night against the Jaguars. Newton has been throwing in team drills this week, and he has apparently looked comfortable enough to send him out for the "dress rehearsal." It would not be surprising if he played fewer snaps than the rest of the starters, however. There was not really any doubt before, but Newton will obviously be ready for Week 1.

No running back depth chart for the Patriots?

22 August 2017

ESPN's Mike Reiss does not think the Patriots have a real running back depth chart. "Any running back could be featured at any given time," Reiss writes, "as it's a deep, talented group." Mike Gillislee was the early fantasy favorite because of his expected role at the goal line, but he has been sidelined the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. Rex Burkhead has been impressive in his place while James White and Dion Lewis should get their touches ...
