8/12:At the ripe age of 37, Steve Smith Sr. is attempting to give it one last go in the NFL. Before the 2015 campaign began, the fiery Smith announced his intention to retire following the end of the season. As it turned out, a torn Achilles against the San Diego Chargers spoiled his retirement plans, and the 16-year veteran will look to lead the Ravens’ paper-thin receiving corps once again. Before suffering that torn Achilles in Week 8, Smith was on pace to have arguably the best season of his legendary career. He finished with 670 yards andread more...
8/12:In a statement Thursday, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians mentioned limiting David Johnson’s early season usage. “I don’t want to run him into the ground early because we have Chris [Johnson] and Andre [Ellington] . . . One guy doesn’t have to get all the carries early in the season.” Despite this remark, Arians talked earlier about his confidence in David Johnson, saying “. . . He can run it 25 times and catch it 15 times. The sky is the limit for his ability, because he can do so many things.” Arians seems to beread more...
8/12:Undrafted rookie running back, Robert Kelley, had a dream start to his NFL career and made a major case to continue it this preseason. The former Tulane back finished Thursday night with seven carries for 40 yards and was able to punch in a one-yard touchdown. He also caught the ball twice for 13 yards. It was a solid debut for a rookie no doubt, especially given that fellow rookie running back, Keith Marshall and starter Matt Jones, failed to get anything going on the ground. Kelley looked strong during the game, and his highlight of theread more...
8/12:It has to be an amazing experience for players to take the field in their first NFL game, even if it is just the preseason, but Thursday night couldn’t have gone much worse for Washington Redskins running back Keith Marshall in his debut. The rookie finished the night with five carries for a dreadful -1 yards. He did add two catches for 10 yards, but when you are a running back, who earlier this week was being touted as a difference maker by the GM, you might want to show a bit more skill on the ground. However,read more...
8/12:Tight end Zach Miller didn't play in the Bears preseason opener Thursday as they fell to the Broncos 22-0. A concussion he suffered last week continues to hold him back. After not seeing an offensive snap in three seasons prior to 2015, he came back in a big way with Chicago during the second half last year, catching 34 balls for 439 yards and five touchdowns. Miller currently comes in 18th in Rotoballer's experts' rankings, but if he were to repeat his 2015 stats across both halves this season, he'd be a top-15 player for sure.--read more...
8/12:Running back Jeremy Langford is looking to build on a successful rookie season last year that convinced the Bears to let veteran Matt Forte leave. He didn't look quite ready for prime time during Thursday's preseason opener though as the Broncos held him to seven yards on four carries. As a running back who can catch a few passes as well, Langford should have plenty of chances to touch the football. Rotoballer's 23rd-ranked running back still has a lot to prove having yet to rush for 100 yards in his career so be sure to keep expectationsread more...
8/12:Playing the second half of the Saints' pre-season opener, Luke McCown went 18/27 for 143 YDS with one TD. Unfortunately, he also threw an interception and fumbled, leading to a Patriot return for touchdown. McCown will enter the season as the backup QB to Drew Brees and will only be used in case of injury. McCown is in his 13th year in the league, but has only totaled 2,370 yards in his career. In other words, half a season's worth for Brees. Should he be forced to play in the regular season, he actually would make forread more...
8/12:In Friday's pre-season game against the Patriots, Marcus Murphy drew an equal number of snaps to Mark Ingram. C.J. Spiller and Tim Hightower are almost assured roster spots and will see limited time in exhibition games due to extensive injury histories. Murphy, therefore, will be given a long look at running back and returner. Murphy didn't overwhelm in the backfield, totaling 22 yards on seven carries. He did break a 48 yard punt return that came off a fumbled catch. Murphy is in his second year out of Missouri and was used strictly on specialread more...
8/11:Second-year running back T.J. Yeldon started, but free-agent signee Chris Ivory found the end zone in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 17-13 preseason loss to the New York Jets Thursday night. The workload for the two backs was remarkably even -- Ivory rushed six times for 26 yards, including a one-yard TD, and caught one pass for four yards; Yeldon rushed four times for 26 yards and caught one pass for eight yards. As expected, Ivory was prominently featured in the red zone. While the two backs might consistently post similar yardage totals, the touchdowns should favor Ivory. Neitherread more...
8/11:Turns out the ankle injury Steelers tight end Ladarius Green has been recovering from may be the least of his worries. A report from Pro Football Talk Thursday says that Green has been dealing with reoccurring headaches that may stem from his multiple concussions he suffered during his time with the Chargers, and that it could potentially lead the talented tight end to retire or be cut by the Steelers. Green will see a potentially momentous drop in ADP following the news. According to Fantasy Football Calculator, he was currently going off the board in standard drafts inread more...
8/11:Third-year wide receiver Marqise Lee caught four passes (on four targets) for 49 yards in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 17-13 preseason loss to the New York Jets Thursday night. Lee's four receptions led the team and his yardage total trailed only Allen Robinson (80 yards). This was an encouraging performance for Lee, who has battled injuries and struggled with consistency through his first two NFL seasons. Lee had missed virtually all of Jacksonville's training camp practices with a strained hamstring, so his mere presence on the field was crucial. Rashad Greene, Lee's main competition for the No.read more...
8/11:Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was able to play in the preseason opener Thursday after being limited in practice by a hamstring injury. He caught his only target of the day, a 12-yard pass, as the Bears were shutout by the Broncos 22-0. In what is hopefully not a sign of the things to come, Chicago's quarterbacks were sacked seven times and only able to complete 16 passes all game. This is still the preseason though, and if Jeffery can produce with the 2015 Bears' team, he can produce with this one when it counts.--Tony Petersread more...
8/11:Mark Sanchez completed 10 of 13 passes for 99 yards, with one touchdown and one interception in Thursday's exhibition opener against the Bears. His play is likely enough to give him the leg up in the quarterback competition. The other player in the derby, Trevor Siemian, was 7 of 12 for 88 yards. Whether it's Sanchez or Siemian winning the job, they will carry very little value outside of two quarterback leagues or serving as a bye week substitute.--Robert Quast - RotoBaller
8/11:The Minnesota Vikings open up their 2016 preseason against the Bengals on Friday. Teddy Bridgewater is expected to play and it will be his first opportunity to show how his role with the team has evolved from last year. Bridgewater had a successful sophomore season but it has yet to translate to fantasy success. Throwing for just over 3200 yards and 14 touchdowns, he will need to do more to show fantasy relevance. Bridgewater ranked as the 23rd quarterback in standard leagues, and while he showed flashes at times, his production was greatly reduced by the heavy runningread more...
8/11:Bryce Treggs was signed as an undrafted free agent by the 49ers following the 2016 NFL Draft. Outside of Torrey Smith, the 49ers WR corps is very young and largely unproven. With last week’s news that former CFL standout Eric Rodgers is out for the year with a torn ACL there is one less receiver competing for a starting spot. Treggs seems like a good fit for Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense, posting a 4.39-second 40 time at Cal’s pro day in March. Although he is most likely a non-factor in 2016, Treggs is worth keeping an eye onread more...
