    Chiefs released WR Mike Williams.

    Advice: Williams was trying to rejuvenate his career in Kansas City, but looked sluggish in the preseason and had a drop in the Chiefs' second exhibition game. At age 29, the former second-round pick's career looks to be nearing an end. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:56 pm

Meanwhile rookie Tyler Boyd has had a productive preseason while drawing praise from WRs coach James Urban. "He's a natural football player," said Urban. "He has great football instincts."

It would probably make life easier for the Jets if Petty wins the job over Smith, who could easily be traded or let go. If Smith holds off Petty, there's a real chance the Jets could open the year with four quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:44 pm

    Advice: Mularkey confirmed DeMarco Murray is the "starter," but the Titans are likely to use a two-back offense that could expand to three if Dexter McCluster is incorporated as the passing-down specialist. Henry has looked genuinely special this August. The Titans would be foolish to not give him 10-14 touches per game. With that said, Murray has dominated the first-team preseason snaps so far.

According to Demovsky, Abbrederis has enjoyed a "strong showing" at training camp and "continues to move up the depth chart." With Jeff Janis' abysmal camp and broken hand, Abbrederis is competing with Davante Adams for No. 3 duties. Abbrederis is a smooth route runner who can play both inside and outside.

    Advice: According to Berman, new OC Frank Reich said that every week during meetings, the coaching staff would ask, "How can we get this guy the football?" regarding Sproles. The 33-year-old caught 55 passes last season, but could jump back up into the 65-75 range similar to his New Orleans days.

"Austin's worked his way right back in there," Koetter said. "And when he got moved down the depth chart all you can ask a player when he gets moved down is that he competes and does better and tries to get back up there and he's done that."

    Advice: There were not any reports of an injury following his 55-yard performance in Thursday's preseason game, and beat writers did not have any updates at the start of practice. Coach John Fox will certainly be asked about the boot after practice, but he is not always forthcoming when it comes to injuries. While the boot is concerning, it is possible the Bears are simply being proactive with a minor issue. Langford has been working as the clear No. 1 back. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:36 pm

  • Derrick Henry works with second team Saturday
    Derrick Henry rushed five times for 31 yards against the Panthers Saturday.

    Advice: Henry saw some snaps with the first-team offense, but the vast majority of his work came after Marcus Mariota left the field. Henry once again looked strong against backup defenders, gaining 25 yards on his first three carries of the second half and consistently gaining yards after contact. It is going to be difficult for the Titans to keep the talented rookie on the sidelines this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:30 pm

  • Rogers making bid for Steelers No. 3 WR job
    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says second-year WR Eli Rogers has "narrowed the gap" in the Steelers' No. 3 receiver race.

    Advice: Sammie Coates has "managed to lose ground" during an up-and-down August, "partly because of a lack of focus that caused drop balls and fumbles." The Tribune-Review notes that Markus Wheaton has "openly lobbied" to play more outside snaps, freeing up opportunity in the slot. Rogers is a slot receiver, while Coates plays outside. The Steelers' wideout distribution will be worth tracking closely in next week's regular season dress rehearsal. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:41 am

    Jets second-round QB Christian Hackenberg did not play in the second preseason game.

    Advice: It is the second-straight DNP for the rookie. The Jets drafted Hackenberg knowing he would not be the answer this season, but it is difficult to develop without getting significant reps both in practice and the preseason. Hackenberg will likely have to wait until the final preseason game to see the field. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:08 pm

  • Fox: Langford made a step forward Thursday
    Bears coach John Fox said Jeremy Langford "made a step forward" in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: He might be underselling it. Langford was terrific Thursday against New England, totaling 55 yards and a touchdown on eight carries. The Bears promised a "hot hand" approach at running back earlier this offseason but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Langford is clearly Chicago's bellcow and may end up being a bargain at his current ADP. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:43 pm

  • Dorial Green-Beckham catch-less in PHI debut
    New Eagles WR Dorial Green-Beckham caught 0-of-2 targets in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: Green-Beckham entered in the second quarter and was immediately targeted on a red zone jump ball. It was a shaky pass from Chase Daniel. DGB also got some run after the break. Even in one of the league's thinnest receiver corps, DGB is buried down the depth chart for the time being, but unlike in Tennessee, we'd guess the Eagles will contrive to move him up in relatively short order.

  • Steelers slot WR Eli Rogers posts 4-39 line
    Steelers second-year WR Eli Rogers caught 4-of-4 targets for 39 yards in Thursday's second preseason game against the Eagles.

    Advice: With Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton inactive, Rogers ran with the "first-team" offense guided by backup QB Landry Jones. Jones tossed four interceptions, but Rogers made the most of his targets. The 5'10/187 slot man has drawn rave reviews from OC Todd Haley, and Ben Roethlisberger reportedly "loves" Rogers. If Sammie Coates continues to struggle this preseason, Rogers could slide right into some three-wide snaps between Brown and Wheaton. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:05 pm

    Advice: In other words, he will miss the Seahawks' regular season dress rehearsal next week. Rawls returned to practice two weeks ago and resumed taking 11-on-11 reps this week, although he isn't a full participant yet. It would be disappointing if we didn't get a good look at Rawls before Week 1. Beat writers still expect him to open the year as Seattle's 1A back with Christine Michael as the 1B.

  • Jeremy Langford hangs 8-55-1 line on Patriots
    Jeremy Langford rushed eight times for 55 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' second preseason game against the Patriots.

    Advice: Through two preseason games, Langford has operated as the Bears' clear-cut No. 1 back. He handled every snap with the first-team offense in the exhibition opener, and did so again tonight before being replaced by Jacquizz Rodgers deep into the second quarter when Brian Hoyer came in at quarterback. Langford's rushing line was pumped up by a 34-yard gain, but he looked explosive with his cuts, and the offseason weight-gain hasn't slowed him down. Langford is cementing himself atop the depth chart and looks like he may open the year in an every-down role. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:14 pm

  • Rawls could lose work to 'awakened' C-Mike
    ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia believes Thomas Rawls remains entrenched as the team's starting running back, but suggests Rawls could lose "six to eight touches per game" to Christine Michael.

    Advice: Kapadia projects Rawls at 15 carries per game to open the year, with Michael at seven and "two to the other backs," consisting of C.J. Prosise and Alex Collins. The Seahawks believe Michael has had enough of an "awakening" that he has become a large part of their offensive plans. Rawls remains a target in the fifth round of fantasy drafts.

    Eagles acquired WR Dorial Green-Beckham from the Titans in exchange for G/T Dennis Kelly.

    Advice: Green-Beckham had clearly fallen out of favor with the Titans' coaching staff, but it is still stunning they decided to trade a 2015 second-round pick for an at best swing lineman. Despite his struggles, Green-Beckham probably has the most natural talent of any receiver on the Eagles' roster and should push for a role behind Jordan Matthews. That said, he struggled to earn snaps in a similarly lackluster receiver corps in Tennessee. While this trade certainly breathes life in DGB's fantasy outlook, he is still nothing more than a flier at this point.

    Advice: He said the same of Justin Hunter, although Hunter has become little more than an afterthought anyway. Green-Beckham made a nice run block on DeMarco Murray's 71-yard touchdown scamper, but gave lackadaisical effort on at least one pass route and still appears to be low on the wideout depth chart.
