  • Patriots FB James Develin suffers broken leg
    Patriots FB James Develin suffered a broken tibia in the team's third preseason game.

    Advice: The injury was originally feared to be an Achilles' injury. While the broken tibia diagnosis is better, it will still sideline Develin at least half the year and perhaps knock him out for the whole season. The Patriots do not have another full back on the roster. Rotoworld.com 33 minutes ago

  • Knile Davis has quiet night behind Charles
    Knile Davis had two catches for 17 yards in Kansas City's third preseason game.

    Advice: Davis played behind Jamaal Charles, but didn't have any carries. Charcandrick West also worked with the first team and finished as the Chiefs leading rusher. Davis remains the top handcuff to Charles. Through three preseason games, Davis has 15 carries for 52 yards (3.46 YPC). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:32 pm

  • Justin Hunter fails to make impact
    Justin Hunter was held without a catch in Tennessee's third preseason game.

    Advice: Hunter played exclusively with the second team, with Hakeem Nicks starting opposite Kendall Wright. All four of his targets came on deep routes. Hunter has just two catches for 14 yards through three preseason games. Hunter isn't a recommended late-round flyer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:05 pm

  • Allen Robinson goes 2-14 in preseason game
    Allen Robinson caught two balls for 14 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

    Advice: Robinson caused a scare when he briefly left the game with a first-half shoulder "contusion" (bruise), but returned on the very next play. Especially with Julius Thomas (finger) losing so much practice time with Blake Bortles, Robinson is in prime position to open the season as a target monster. Through three preseason games, "A-Rob" has seven receptions for 103 yards. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 pm

    Theo Riddick had one carry for three yards in Detroit's third preseason game.

    Advice: Ameer Abdullah started, but Riddick mixed in with the first team. He added one catch for six yards on his lone target. With Joique Bell expected to be ready for Week 1, Riddick doesn't project to have a role in the Lions offense. Riddick has 12 carries for 42 yards through three preseason games.

  • LeGarrette Blount plays with second team
    LeGarrette Blount had seven carries for 29 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game.

    Advice: While Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden shared time with the Tom Brady group, Blount was the lead back when Jimmy Garoppolo entered to begin the second half. It's possible Blount played with Garoppolo in anticipation of them opening the season together. Knowing Bill Belichick, it's also possible the Patriots' tailback position has been opened to competition, and Blount is getting pushed by Gray. We don't anticipate any of the Pats' backs truly being trustworthy in re-draft leagues this year, but we do still believe Blount has the best shot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:46 pm

  • Blake Bortles continues solid preseason
    Blake Bortles completed 20-of-29 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville's third preseason game.

    Advice: He added four carries for 38 yards. Borltes made some nice throws to Allen Hurns, including a 13-yard play-action touchdown. He would have had another touchdown, but Allen Robinson dropped a pass in the end zone. Bortles has put together a solid preseason, competing 39-of-60 passes for 461 yards and a touchdown through three games. Bortles has potential as a streaming option in redraft leagues.

  • D. Robinson works as Jaguars No. 2 back
    Denard Robinson rushed three times for seven yards and caught two passes for 29 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

    Advice: Robinson was the Jaguars' No. 2 back in this one, mixing in with the first-team offense behind T.J. Yeldon, who operated as an every-down back. Robinson handled a drive to himself, but was pulled at the goal line for Yeldon, who plunged in from two yards out. Robinson is ticketed for change-of-pace duties in the Jaguars' offense. He's a low-ceiling handcuff for Yeldon owners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:39 pm

    Aaron Dobson had two catches for 51 yards on five targets in New England's third preseason game.

    Advice: Dobson had a night to forget playing with the Tom Brady group. He was at fault on Tom Brady's first "interception" -- really a fumble by Dobson that was stripped by Peanut Tillman -- and Dobson was also flagged for blocking in the back. Even with Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell sidelined, Dobson remains off the redraft radar. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:32 pm

    Patriots FB James Develin was carted off the field with a leg injury in Friday night's preseason game.

    Greg Olsen caught six balls for 51 yards in the Panthers' third preseason game Friday night.

    Advice: Cam Newton targeted Olsen relentlessly and even to a fault in this one, which may be a preview of what we'll see this regular season. Olsen saw a whopping eight first-half targets. Olsen was a chain mover in this game, though he did have an uncharacteristic drop on the Panthers' fourth drive. Olsen had a huge second-quarter gain negated by a penalty on an offensive lineman. Even with Devin Funchess (hamstring) back, Olsen has a chance to dominate targets in Carolina's passing attack with so little out wide. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:15 pm

  • Chiefs WR Maclin continues red-hot preseason
    Jeremy Maclin caught seven balls for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' third preseason game.

    Advice: He caught all seven of his first-half targets. The Chiefs got on the board quickly with a 29-yard dart into good coverage complete to Maclin from a surprisingly-aggressive Alex Smith. For the second straight game, Maclin was fed the football creatively and showed outstanding chemistry with his quarterback on a variety of routes. If the Chiefs keep manufacturing ways for Maclin to get the football, he'll be a value pick in the sixth and seventh round of drafts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:02 pm

  • Bolden works as Pats 1st-team third-down back
    Brandon Bolden gained 12 yards on five carries in the Patriots' third preseason game.

    Advice: More than the pedestrian stats, it was notable that Bolden worked as the primary passing-down back with the Tom Brady group. Bolden and Jonas Gray shared the backfield with Brady under center, as Gray handled inside runs and Bolden worked in the old Vereen Role. Bolden has emerged as the favorite for those duties, ahead of Travaris Cadet, James White, and Dion Lewis. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:55 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 a what's likely to be a losing Titans team. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:46 pm

Manuel is starting the third preseason game, but isn’t a serious contender for the Week 1 job. Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel will rotate with the first team.

    Advice: Hunter was arrested July 3 at a Virginia Beach bar. He was originally charged with "felony malicious wounding", but is now "only" facing allegations of misdemeanor assault and battery. It's well within the realm of possibility that Hunter beats the lesser charge, or that it's further reduced in court. Hunter goes back before the judge this upcoming Tuesday.

    ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss suggests Brandon LaFell (foot) could open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

    Advice: WEEI Boston's Chris Price suggested the same thing earlier this week. The Patriots provide no details on injuries, and LaFell's has been a mystery since he showed up at spring practices with a walking boot on his foot. If LaFell isn't ready to play in Week 1, Jimmy Garoppolo's three-wide set would presumably consist of Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, and Reggie Wayne. Not ideal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 am

  • Raiders OC praises Latavius Murray
    Raiders OC Bill Musgrave praised Latavius Murray's hands, body, agility, and vision Thursday.

    Advice: "He’s made very positive impressions," Musgrave said. "He has been working a lot on his hands so he can be a good receiver out of the backfield. He’s got great vision." The Murray buzz was in full-force earlier this offseason but has quieted down since camps opened, suggesting his value peaked pretty early. But Murray has done nothing to relinquish his spot atop the depth chart. Roy Helu has been hurt, and Trent Richardson hasn't stood out. It's possible Murray opens the year getting all the early-down work and even some pass-game reps. His ADP has risen to the middle of the third round where he's being taken as RB16.

  • Jarvis Landry to do 'a lot of red-zone damage'
    ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker expects Jarvis Landry to "do a lot of damage in the red zone" this season.

    Advice: Walker "wouldn't be surprised" if Landry doubles his TD total (5) from last season and becomes a double-digit touchdown scorer. It's been clear since last season that Landry is Ryan Tannehill's favorite target, and if Miami's second preseason game was any indication, Landry is going to be a preferred option near the goal line. On back-to-back third- and fourth-and-goal plays, Tannehill threw to Landry. He'll likely threaten 90 catches and eight scores. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:02 am

    ESPN's Mike Reiss doesn't expect WR Josh Boyce to make the Patriots' 53-man roster.

    Advice: With the signing of Reggie Wayne, Reiss has the Patriots keeping Julian Edelman, Wayne, Danny Amendola, and Aaron Dobson, while Brandon LaFell opens the year on reserve/PUP. Boyce, a 2013 fourth-rounder, has long been impressive in practice settings, but he had a nightmare of a preseason opener, dropping passes and showing zero chemistry with backup Jimmy Garoppolo.

    Advice: Cimini says 27-year-old Ivory has had his best camp in three years with the Jets and has clearly worked on his pass-game chops. Ivory is the crystal-clear lead dog in the Jets' backfield and could see "about 20 touches per week" with 3-4 looks in the passing game. Not only is Ivory the favorite for early-down duties between the 20s, he also has a stranglehold on goal-line work.

    The 49ers promised Vernon Davis would be a bigger part of the offense this season.

    Advice: ESPN's Paul Gutierrez expects Davis to re-emerge as an option in the red zone and be San Francisco's "breakout" player on offense. Davis is 31, but entering a contract year and coming off a strong offseason in which he didn't hold out of OTAs and minicamp.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports no running back has separated himself at Cowboys camp, and the expectation is Dallas uses a committee approach.

    Advice: All three of Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, and Lance Dunbar bring something different to the table. Randle and McFadden rely on quickness and speed, while Dunbar probably has the clearest path to an actual cemented role on offense as a "perfect fit" for the change-of-pace job. Randle is still the favorite to open the season as lead dog, but the Cowboys may rotate these guys in and out. Randle continues to have a far-too-rich-for-our-tastes third-round ADP.

    The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci believes there's been "nothing at camp that indicates" E.J. Manuel is a serious contender for the Bills' starting job.

    Advice: This has been the consensus all summer long, making it all the more baffling that coach Rex Ryan has decided Manuel will start this weekend's regular season dress rehearsal over Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel. The most sensible theory is that Ryan is trying to throw the Colts off before Week 1, but Ryan has to know presumptive starter Taylor needs all the preseason reps with the 1s he can get. Perhaps the Bills believe Manuel could generate trade interest with a decent showing. Whatever the reasoning, it's hard to understand. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:49 pm

    E.J. Manuel will start Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers.

    Advice: With Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel locked in a tight battle, coach Rex Ryan is going with a player who's been a distant No. 3 all summer for his team's regular season dress rehearsal. Ryan did add he expects all three quarterbacks to spend time with the first-team offense. It's quite possible Ryan has already settled on his starter — with Taylor being the favorite — and Manuel is merely a diversionary tactic for the Colts, who are coming to Buffalo in Week 1.

Coach Todd Bowles has been impressed with Ivory's camp. "I knew he was a good player, (but) I didn't know he was as fast as he was," Bowles said. "He's got very good feet.

  • Brandon LaFell could head to reserve/PUP?
    WEEI Boston's Chris Price "wouldn't be shocked" if Brandon LaFell (foot) opened the season on reserve/PUP.

    Advice: Price did note LaFell is not in a walking boot, and nor is he getting around with a limp. He looks healthy, but is not practicing and isn't talking to media, which is essentially the Patriots' policy with injured players. Price also noted the Patriots will have open roster spots early in the season with LeGarrette Blount suspended Week 1 and Tom Brady currently suspended for the first four games. If LaFell isn't ready for Opening Day, this could allow him to avoid reserve/PUP. Either way, his status is a concern. LaFell has been on the active/PUP list since July 27.

    Mike Evans exited the Bucs' second preseason game Monday night with a strained hamstring.

On five targets through the first two preseason games, Evans has zero catches. As we've seen before with hamstring strains in receivers, they can linger. For now, we'll consider Evans day-to-day.

    Advice: Darren McFadden started the second preseason game, gaining just four yards on three attempts. Lance Dunbar worked with the first-team offense as the passing down back, catching two passes for three yards. Randle had the best night of the three, but he did not see his first carry until after Tony Romo left the field. The Cowboys could have been sending a message to Randle by limiting his first-team reps, but his usage against the 49ers suggests Randle's hold on the starting job is tenuous at best. He is a risky pick in the third round. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 am

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.

    Knile Davis rushed 11 times for 29 yards and caught two passes for six yards in the Chiefs' second preseason game.

    Advice: The Chiefs didn't give Jamaal Charles much run for precautionary reasons, so Davis operated as an every-down back with the first-team offense. He had very little room to run behind one of the league's weaker offensive lines, while facing Seattle's stout defensive front. Through two exhibition games, Davis has 52 yards on 15 carries. He is an elite handcuff worth drafting in the tenth through twelfth rounds of 12-team leagues, even by non-Charles owners. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:27 pm

  • Maclin: 3-22-1 against Seahawks
    Jeremy Maclin caught three balls for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' second preseason game, adding an eight-yard carry.

    Advice: Maclin looked quick and explosive working the sideline against Seattle's boundary corners. He saw a goal-line target early in the second quarter, but couldn't secure it following a big hit by Seahawks S Steven Terrell over the middle. Plays later, Maclin lined up in the backfield next to Alex Smith in the shotgun and beat a linebacker for a three-yard TD. Maclin played a variety of roles and motioned all over the field, perhaps indicating the Chiefs plan to manufacture ways to get him the football. Maclin is priced quite affordably this year in drafts with fantasy owners fearing the effect Smith will have on his numbers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:01 pm

  • Ivory racks up 56 total yards and a score
    Chris Ivory rushed five times for 36 yards and a touchdown and gained 20 yards on three receptions against the Falcons Friday night.

    Advice: Ivory was having a poor night on the ground before busting a 33-yard touchdown on his final carry of the game. The real story is Ivory's involvement in the passing game. After catching just 18 passes total last season, Ivory had three receptions in basically a quarter and a half on Friday night. The receptions were all dump offs, and Bilal Powell still came in on most of the obvious passing situations. Still, this game is decent evidence the Jets' talk of getting Ivory more involved in the passing game this season might be legitimate. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:27 pm

  • Bills expected to keep three quarterbacks
    The Bills are expected to keep three quarterbacks.

    Advice: Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel are Buffalo’s top two quarterbacks. The Bills reportedly feel "there’s still some ceiling to be reached" with E.J. Manuel and plan to carry him as their No. 3. Manuel has worked exclusively with the backups in two preseason games, completing 13-of-22 passes (59.1 percent) for 188 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Joseph Randle returns to practice
    Joseph Randle (oblique) returned to Cowboys practice Friday.

    Advice: He took first-team reps. Randle's oblique has become a recurring concern, but isn't a significant injury. Randle remains Dallas' best option at lead back, but he's expected to lose touches to Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:53 am

  • Cowboys RB Randle aggravates oblique injury
    Joseph Randle is doubtful for Sunday's preseason game after aggravating his oblique injury in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Randle is now in a race against time to get cleared for Dallas' third preseason game, where depth charts are traditionally finalized. "It’s the same thing I had earlier," Randle said. "It flared up on me again. ... It’s just something we have to keep fighting through." Randle's absence comes just as Darren McFadden (hamstring) is finally healthy enough to get reps with the first team. Randle is an extremely risky investment at his current third- to fourth-round ADP. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:01 pm

  • Theo Riddick totals 13 yards vs. Redskins
    Theo Riddick rushed three times for four yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins, adding a nine-yard reception.

    Advice: Riddick again got the "start" in place of Joique Bell, but alternated reps with Ameer Abdullah. Neither player was in the game long as the Lions used their first-team offense sparingly. Riddick may be technically ahead of Abdullah on the depth chart, but the second-round rookie is the heavy favorite to complement Bell, and perhaps supplant him, in Week 1. Riddick is a fringe consideration in deeper PPR leagues. He has 11 carries for 39 yards through two exhibition contests. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:35 pm

  • Maclin expects more deep balls this season
    Jeremy Maclin expects the Chiefs to throw it down the field more often this season.

    Advice: "It may not be bombs over Baghdad every play," Maclin said. "But is that something we can do? Do we want to do more of it? Yes, we do." According to Pro Football Focus, Alex Smith attempted just 24 passes of more than 20 yards last season. Maclin had 34 targets of longer than 20 yards by himself. Maclin's presence should force the ultra-conservative Smith to push the ball downfield more, but it is unlikely to become a big part of the Chiefs' offensive attack. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:26 am

  • Justin Hunter's hearing moved to Sept. 1
    Justin Hunter's preliminary hearing for a felony assault charge has been moved to September 1.

    Advice: The hearing was originally set for September 3, which is the date of the Titans' preseason finale. The charge stems from a July 3 brawl at a Virginia Beach bar in which Hunter was allegedly involved. The Titans have said they plan to "let the legal process play out." Hunter is participating in training camp. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:58 am

  • Eric Ebron 'turned heads' this offseason
    Sophomore TE Eric Ebron has "turned heads" inside the Lions' organization with his performance this offseason.

    Advice: The Lions want to play faster this year after averaging 65.3 plays a contest last season. With not much on the depth chart behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, Ebron could be the beneficiary of the couple extra plays Detroit is likely to run each game. He is a very interesting TE2.

  • Cowboys to use RBBC method?
    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram continues to refer to the Cowboys' backfield as a "running back by committee."

    Advice: Beat writer Charean Williams indicates the Cowboys have resisted making meaningful running back additions because they want to give the Joseph Randle-Darren McFadden-Lance Dunbar triumvirate every opportunity to succeed. Team observers have projected Randle to handle 15 touches per game, McFadden to handle ten touches per game, and Dunbar to see 5-8 per game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:42 am
