  • Jets trim roster to 75, wave goodbye to Posey

  • Jaguars cut 12 ahead of Tuesday's deadline
    Jaguars cut QB Jeff Tuel, WR Tandon Doss, CB Tommie Campbell, S Desmond Cooper, TE Connor Hamlett, P/K Kasey Redfern, DE Camaron Beard, DT Eric Crume, OL Cody Booth, OL Jack Rummells, LB Khairi Fortt and LB Mister Alexander.

    Advice: The Jags had until Tuesday to get their roster down to 75, but they decided to get it over with quickly. Jeff Tuel is the most famous name on this list. Tuel Time started one game for the Bills in 2013, the only start of his career. Khairi Fortt was a fourth-round pick of the Saints in 2014. A standout at both Penn State and Cal, Fortt has dealt with knee injuries since college. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:12 am

  • Jets pull the plug on T.J. Graham
    Jets released WR T.J. Graham.

    Advice: Graham saw just 21 snaps this preseason, hauling in one catch for 10 yards. He was always a long shot to make the team behind starters Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall and backups Jeremy Kerley and Chris Owusu. The 26-year-old has totaled 57 receptions for 770 yards in three NFL seasons. He could catch on elsewhere as a depth signing. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:52 am

  • Fitzgerald Toussaint's stock is dropping
    Ravens RB Fitzgerald Toussaint didn't see the field in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins.

    Advice: Beat writer Jeff Zrebiac is taking this as a sign Toussaint has fallen behind Terrence Magee on the Ravens' running back depth chart. Magee has averaged 5.1 yards per carry this preseason compared to only 3.4 for Toussaint. Neither one figures to see much playing time this year behind starter Justin Forsett and complementary backs Lorenzo Taliaferro and Buck Allen. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:45 am

  • Whiz: Titans could look to add a running back
    Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team is open to signing another running back.

    Advice: "I'm sure we’ll look and see what else is out there," said Whisenhunt. "If there’s somebody that can help us—if we need that." None of the Titans' running backs have stood out this preseason and the team is likely to employ a committee in the early going. Sankey is the favorite for early-down work with Dexter McCluster mixing in on passing downs. David Cobb will have a role when he returns from his calf injury with Antonio Andrews and David Fluellen serving as backfield depth. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:25 am

  • Caldwell: Joique Bell 'moving along really well'
    Lions coach Jim Caldwell said RB Joique Bell is "moving along really well" in his recovery from offseason knee and Achilles surgeries.

    Advice: Bell said he's made "good progress" though the Lions are still "playing it by ear." He hasn't suited up for any of the Lions' preseason games and has yet to resume practicing. Bell doesn't expect to be limited upon his return. Promising rookie Ameer Abdullah will have a role regardless of Bell's health. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:47 am

  • Jags willing to trade a kicker?
    Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union believes the Jaguars could be open to trading one of their two kickers.

    Advice: The Jaguars are unlikely to keep both Josh Scobee and Jason Meyers when the roster shrinks from 75 to 53 in a few days. Both players have had good preseasons and could be swapped for late-round picks. The Steelers could be interested in acquiring a fresh leg. Shaun Suisham went down with a torn ACL in his first preseason game while Garrett Hartley is nursing a hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:59 am

  • Hartley (hamstring) doubtful for Week 1
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said K Garrett Hartley's availability for Week 1 against the Patriots "isn't looking good."

    Advice: He suffered a hamstring injury Saturday against Buffalo and is headed for an MRI. Hartley signed earlier this month after going down with a torn ACL. It's been a rough camp for Pittsburgh kickers. Free agent Jay Feely worked out with the Steelers on Friday and could be the team's best option with Hartley sidelined. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:31 am

  • Ballard dealing with another hamstring issue
    Colts RB Vick Ballard is dealing with another hamstring injury.

    Advice: Ballard suffered the injury on Thursday. It's "different" than the hamstring issue he dealt with earlier in camp. At this point, the injury-prone back is likely headed to injured reserve, and will eventually be released with a settlement. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:24 pm

  • Green targeted twice in Saturday's loss
    Ladarius Green nabbed one catch for 18 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Seahawks.

    Advice: Green hasn't had quite the preseason fantasy owners were hoping for. In three games, he's hauled in just two passes for 27 yards. The 25-year-old will get a chance to start with Antonio Gates sidelined for the first four weeks but is nothing more than a late-round flyer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:20 pm

  • Quinton Patton operates as third wide out
    Quinton Patton caught one pass for eight yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

    Advice: Patton operated as the 49ers' third receiver, but that did not get him many snaps with the first-team offense. San Francisco ran a lot of two-wide formations with FB Bruce Miller or an extra tight end on the field. With an uncertain workload on an offense poised to struggle, Patton is well off the redraft radar. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm

  • Owen Daniels catches one pass Saturday
    Owen Daniels caught one pass for three yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.

    Advice: Daniels started and played ahead of Virgil Green, but he did not make an offensive impact. He now has five receptions for 28 yards this preseason. Daniels struggled to find weekly relevance with 78 targets last year, and it is not a given he gets that many opportunities this season. He is a TE2 at best. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:13 pm

  • Branden Oliver scores 70-yard TD Saturday
    Branden Oliver rushed five times for 14 yards and scored the Chargers’ only touchdown in Saturday’s preseason loss to the Seahawks.

    Advice: Oliver broke a number of tackles on his way to a highlight reel touchdown in the third quarter. It was his only catch of the night. Melvin Gordon out-touched Oliver 18 to six and seems to be locked in as the Bolts’ early-down back. Oliver did an admirable job filling in for Ryan Mathews last year and should still get a few carries per game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm

  • Ronnie Hillman gains 35 yards on five rushes
    Ronnie Hillman gained 35 yards on five carries in the Broncos' third preseason game.

    Advice: He added two catches for three yards. Hillman has established himself as the clear No. 2 in Denver, though he served in just a change-of-pace role with the first-team offense. Hillman will not steal enough carries from C.J. Anderson to have standalone value, but he will be a hot commodity if Anderson goes down. Hillman now has 155 yards on 21 carries (7.38 YPC) this preseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm

  • Allen secures two catches in Saturday's loss
    Keenan Allen caught two passes for 28 yards in Saturday’s preseason loss to the Seahawks.

    Advice: That gives him five receptions for 65 yards this preseason. Allen fell victim to the dreaded sophomore slump last season, logging just 783 yards and four touchdowns. Philip Rivers recently said Allen is having his best camp, which should give fantasy owners reason for optimism as the 23-year-old enters his third campaign with the Chargers.

  • Vick Ballard will not play on Saturday
    Colts RB Vick Ballard will not play in the team's third preseason game.

    Advice: Sidelined for almost two years by ACL and Achilles injuries, Ballard got his first action of the preseason last week. It is unclear why he is being held out, but he may have suffered a setback. Already a longshot for a roster spot, missing this game probably seals Ballard's fate. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:51 pm

  • Bishop Sankey: 6-17 against the Chiefs
    Bishop Sankey managed 17 yards on six carries in the Titans' third preseason game.

    Advice: He's at 77 yards on 20 runs (3.85 YPC) through three exhibition weeks. Sankey shared the backfield with Antonio Andrews to open the game, while David Cobb (calf) was scratched. Sankey fumbled in the first quarter, but the ball was recovered by rookie RT Jeremiah Poutasi. Another bad sign came when Andrews vultured a two-yard touchdown; Sankey doesn't profile well as a goal-line back, limiting his scoring ceiling if those runs are going to go to Andrews or Cobb this year. Sankey remains a capped-upside committee back on what's likely to be a losing Titans team. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:46 pm

  • Joique expects to be healthy for Week 1
    Lions RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') expects to be "healthy" for the regular season.

    Advice: Bell has yet to practice this offseason coming off "minor" knee and Achilles' surgeries. Bell stumbled out of the gate after a similarly unhealthy offseason last year, but he is confident he can step in and be a workhorse when he is healthy. In reality, he will likely form an early-season committee with rookie Ameer Abdullah. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:45 am

  • Kubiak: Ronnie Hillman deserves more reps
    Coach Gary Kubiak said RB Ronnie Hillman "deserves more reps."

    Advice: A report on Monday called Hillman the "1B runner behind C.J. Anderson." Kubiak's statement seems to confirm Hillman has jumped the "slumping" Montee Ball on the depth chart. Anderson is still the starter in Denver, but it has become clear Hillman will have a role as a change of pace option. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:18 am

  • Joique (knee, Achilles') still not practicing
    Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') remains sidelined at Lions practice.

    Advice: Bell has spent the entire summer on active/PUP. At this point, he's not going to see any preseason action. Bell has 20 days to get ready for the Lions' opener. Whenever Bell returns, it will be to a committee with Ameer Abdullah, and perhaps even Theo Riddick. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:10 pm

  • Stafford confirms Lions' will use RBBC
    Lions QB Matthew Stafford confirmed the Lions will use a running back by committee even when Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') is healthy.

    Advice: The writing has been on the wall all offseason. The only real question is how the workload will be divvied up. Ameer Abdullah was sparingly used in the Lions' second preseason game, but he should open the season as at least the 1B to Bell's 1A. Theo Riddick has earned praised for his running this preseason, but will be at best used as a passing-game specialist. Despite his rising ADP, Abdullah's upside makes him the back to own in Detroit.

  • Ronnie Hillman now '1B' to C.J. Anderson?
    9News' Mike Klis said Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is now the "1B runner behind C.J. Anderson."

    Advice: Hillman has been electric this preseason, averaging 7.5 yards on his 16 carries. The hot start has allowed Hillman to blow past Montee Ball on the depth chart, and it appears he is in a position to steal carries from Anderson as well. Hillman has struggled before when given big workloads and lacks the ideal size to be a true feature back, but he is a great change of pace option who can rip off big chunk plays. If Anderson falters, Hillman has the talent to pick up the slack. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 8:42 am

  • Sankey shines as Titans RB battle rages on
    Bishop Sankey rushed six times for 45 yards in the Titans' second preseason game Sunday night.

    Advice: Sankey showed niftiness and burst against the Rams' first-team defense before giving way to rookie David Cobb. Through two exhibition weeks, Sankey has 60 yards on 14 runs (4.29 YPC). Although those covering the team anticipate Cobb ending up with more carries, Sankey continues to hog starter's reps and has operated as the Titans' lead back in each of the first two preseason games. Cobb did mix in with the ones after Sankey was done for the night against St. Louis, but Sankey ultimately outplayed him. This backfield has RBBC written all over it. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 6:45 pm

  • Ladarius Green catches nine-yard pass vs. SD
    Ladarius Green caught a nine-yard pass in Saturday's preseason game.

    Advice: Cast wise, the Chargers mailed it in on offense tonight, but Green now has only one catch through two preseason games. Green is locked in as San Diego's Weeks 1-4 starter in the absence of Antonio Gates (suspension), but has created very little buzz this summer. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 9:51 pm

  • Ballard rushes twice in long-awaited return
    Colts RB Vick Ballard rushed twice for four yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bears.

    Advice: It was the injury-prone Ballard's first appearance of any kind since Week 1, 2013. With the Colts' running back corps deeper than it's been in recent seasons, Ballard appears to be a 53-man roster long shot. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 8:16 pm

  • Ronnie Hillman solid in second preseason tilt
    Ronnie Hillman broke out for 54 yards on eight carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.

    Advice: That gives Hillman 120 yards on 16 carries this preseason. As good as he's looked with the ball in his hands, Hillman has been even better in pass protection, routinely laying defenders out to give Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler more time in the pocket. He's surged past Montee Ball and is now in the driver's seat for backup carries behind starter C.J. Anderson. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 8:10 pm

    Vick Ballard (hamstring) is expected to play in Saturday’s preseason game.

    Advice: It’s Ballad's first appearance in almost two years after consecutive ACL and Achilles injuries. Ballard saw his most extensive action of training camp this week and should be close to 100 percent. He reportedly spelled Frank Gore with the first team. Ballard needs to prove he can stay healthy to secure a roster spot. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 12:38 pm

    Advice: This is Rivers' third camp with his No. 1 receiver. "I think that's not even close, just how consistent he's been," were Rivers' comments on comparing Allen's 2015 camp to his first two. All signs continue to point toward Allen bouncing back from his sluggish sophomore campaign. He's a WR2. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 12:15 pm

  • Patton given 'every opportunity' to be No. 3
    The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows said WR Quinton Patton is being given "every opportunity" to win the 49ers' No. 3 receiver competition.

    Advice: With Jerome Simpson suspended to start the year, Patton has a leg up on Bruce Ellington, who has missed the last two weeks with a leg strain. UDFA DeAndrew White has played well in camp, but he is a long-shot to pass Patton on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com Aug 20, 8:31 am
