Player Notes

  • Duke Johnson (concussion) still sidelined
    Browns RB Duke Johnson (concussion) is sidelined for Thursday's preseason finale.

    Advice: Johnson was concussed last Saturday. He's likely to remain in the league's concussion protocol for at least another 2-3 days. The third rounder should be ready for next Sunday's opener, but it's not a guarantee. The Browns' first official practice report comes out in six days. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:37 pm

  • Kenny Bell (hamstring) sitting out Thursday
    Bucs WR Kenny Bell (hamstring) is sitting out Thursday's preseason finale.

    Advice: It appears to be just a day-to-day injury for the fifth rounder, but he's losing ground in his quest for No. 3 duties behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. Even if he's healthy, Bell could end up a scratch for Week 1 if he's not in good enough shape. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:19 pm

  • 'Good chance' Celek leads tight ends in snaps
    The Philadelphia Daily News said there is a "good chance" Brent Celek leads the Eagles' tight ends in snaps this year.

    Advice: Just as he has every year since 2009. Chip Kelly reportedly loves Celek, and he offers the Eagles more in the running game than Zach Ertz. Recovering from groin surgery, Ertz may not even suit up early in the season, and when he finally gets back on the field it will again be in a backup role to Celek. Ertz is nothing more than a TE2 flier at this point. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:21 am

  • 'Probably one spot' for Fauria and Tim Wright
    The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett said TEs Joseph Fauria and Tim Wright are competing for "probably only one spot."

    Advice: Wright would seem to have the edge as the Lions traded for him just three days ago, but all Wright cost was a kicker who was unlikely to make the final roster anyway. Wright has floundered in both New England and Tampa Bay following a breakout rookie campaign, and Fauria offers the Lions a red-zone threat they are missing at the back end of their receiver corps. This competition could go down the wire, and both tight ends may end up on the final roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:49 am

  • Maxx Williams has no shot to start Week 1
    ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley said rookie TE Maxx Williams has no chance to start Week 1.

    Advice: He should get some snaps, but he is well behind Crockett Gillmore on the depth chart. Rookie tight ends always struggle to make a fantasy impact, especially rookie tight ends who are on the bench. Williams could grow into a role as the season wears on, but for now he is not useful in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:23 am
