  • Cordarrelle Patterson quiet against Chargers
    Cordarrelle Patterson missed his lone target in the Vikings' third preseason game.

    Advice: Yes, he's still in the NFL. Patterson added two kickoff returns for 43 yards. C-Pat won't be involved on offense beyond the occasional bubble screen. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:29 pm

  • Allen Hurns makes diving grab Sunday night
    Allen Hurns caught 2-of-4 targets for 25 yards Sunday night against the Bengals.

    Advice: It was not a great night for the offense, but their one solid drive was sparked by a diving 3rd-and-long conversion by Hurns early in the second quarter. He added another seven-yard grab just before the half. Likely done for the preseason, Hurns finishes with 67 yards and a score on five catches. Set for some regression, there are better options in the sixth round. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:16 pm

  • Allen Robinson records two catches Sunday
    Allen Robinson caught both of his targets for 10 yards Sunday night against the Bengals.

    Advice: A struggling offense limited his opportunities, but he still made the most of them. He drew a long pass interference call down the left sideline to set up a field goal, and he made a great contested catch late in the second quarter. After he put on a show all preseason, there is no reason to worry about Robinson's WR1 status. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:11 pm

    Advice: "I'm fine now," he added. The injury originally looked like an ankle tweak, but it sounds like Green escaped with a knee bruise. The Bengals are counting on Green as much as ever this season after losing Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu to free agency, and Tyler Eifert (ankle) until Week 4 at the soonest.

    Brandon LaFell caught his only target for eight yards Sunday night against the Jaguars.

    Advice: LaFell worked as the starter in two-wide sets before A.J. Green went down with a minor injury. Rookie Tyler Boyd saw time in the slot in three-wide looks. LaFell did curiously see snaps with the second unit, but it was likely just to get him reps after he missed time with a hand injury. Looking likely to open the season as the No. 2 receiver, LaFell has some intriguing target upside. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:54 pm

    Cardinals WR J.J. Nelson went catch-less on two targets in the team's third preseason game.

    Advice: It was a quiet night for Nelson despite the fact that he ran with the ones with Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown in street clothes. Nelson has homerun-hitting ability, but he will enter the season no higher than No. 4 on the depth chart. Nelson may also be behind Cardinals "training camp MVP" Jaron Brown.

    A.J. Green limped off the field in the first quarter of the Bengals' third preseason game with a knee injury, but the team says the issue is not serious.

    Advice: Green appeared to suffer the injury when he planted his right leg along the sideline. He did run a route after the injury, but he limped to the sidelines after the play. The training staff reportedly did not find any issues when testing the stability of the knee, and Green walked it off on the sideline. Even though he appears to have escaped without a serious injury, Green's night is done. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:40 pm

    Advice: Miller looked sharp on the opening drive, delivering back-to-back catches to set Houston up at the one-yard line, where Lamar Miller punched it in for the game’s first touchdown. He also snagged a six-yarder late in the first half. Among the starting wideouts, only Will Fuller out-snapped Miller. The third-round pick has enjoyed a productive preseason so far with 10 catches for 97 yards. Look for Miller to open 2016 as the Texans’ starting slot receiver. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:44 pm

  • Eagles release Randle after nightmare summer
    Eagles released WR Rueben Randle.

    Advice: It's surprising in that Randle is a veteran in a weak wideout corps, but entirely unsurprising in light of Randle's summer and career arc. Randle caught only five passes for a pathetic 26 yards in three preseason games, and drew universal bafflement at his effort level. Randle seemed to take making the 53-man roster for granted. Randle is only 25 years old, and started all 16 games for the Giants last season, but both his film and buzz are that of a player who will have a hard time sticking on someone's roster in 2016.

    Advice: Williams has been solid in the passing game this preseason, but most importantly he has run extensively with Philip Rivers' first-team offense. While Williams' role to open the year is unclear behind Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates, it is notable that he has logged run over Travis Benjamin at times in August.

    Advice: Diggs finishes the preseason with seven grabs for 82 yards. Moving all over the formation this summer, Diggs enters Week 1 as the Vikings' clear-cut No. 1 receiver.

    Advice: That brings the roster to 79, meaning the Panthers will have to make four more cuts before Tuesday's 4 PM ET deadline. Hill failed to stand out this preseason, hauling in just two of four targets for 18 yards in three appearances.

The No. 117 overall pick in the draft, Cooper has essentially locked up a job in three-wide sets after coach Jeff Fisher said as much earlier this week.

In Saturday night's preseason game against the Saints, Miller racked up three catches for 34 yards on four targets. He had 4-34 against the 49ers in the exhibition opener.

  • Larry Fitzgerald headlines inactives Friday
    Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will not play in the Cardinals' second preseason game Friday night.

    Advice: Fitzgerald is listed with a knee injury which forced him to miss Wednesday's practice, but all indications are it is just a day-to-day injury. John Brown (concussion), Tyrann Mathieu (knee), Justin Bethel (foot), and Robert Nkemdiche (ankle) will also sit out. Rotoworld.com Aug 19, 5:20 pm

  • Dez says his 'mind is right' leaving camp
    Dez Bryant said his "mind is right" leaving training camp.

    Advice: "My confidence is sky-high right now," Bryant said. "I think it's the best it's ever been." Bryant has not shown any ill effects from the foot injury which derailed his 2015, and he looked to be back in form during the first preseason game. As long as he and Tony Romo stay healthy, Dez should return to the high-end WR1 ranks. Rotoworld.com Aug 18, 9:10 am
