  • Dwayne Washington expected to make roster
    Seventh-round RB Dwayne Washington is expected to make the Lions' 53-man roster.

    Advice: Washington's odds got a huge boost when the Lions cut Stevan Ridley loose. "I’ve been impressed with some of the things he’s done," OC Jim Bob Cooter said. "When the guy gets the ball, he does impressive things." Washington figures to open the year behind Zach Zenner for No. 3 duties, but is an elite athlete. He has eight carries for 34 yards through two preseason games. Today, 1:57 pm

  • Adrian Peterson sitting out final two games
    Adrian Peterson will sit out the Vikings' final two preseason games.

    Advice: Peterson hasn't notched a preseason carry since his 2011 knee injury. With the Vikings looking to get him the rock 20 times per game in his age-31 campaign, Peterson remains an elite RB1. Today, 1:41 pm

  • Ravens' backfield may be four-headed monster
    ESPN's Jamison Hensley suggested the Ravens could employ a four-back committee to start the season.

    Advice: With nobody playing well enough to separate from the group, Hensley thinks the Ravens could open the season with Justin Forsett as the starter, Buck Allen and rookie Kenneth Dixon as third-down backs, and Terrance West as the short-yardage option. That kind of split seems unlikely, but it is a reminder of how fluid the situation is in Baltimore's backfield. For now, Forsett is still the best fantasy option, but the best play could be to just stay away. Today, 7:16 am

  • Lions release veteran RB Stevan Ridley
    Lions released RB Stevan Ridley.

    Advice: The writing was on the wall after Ridley played behind Zach Zenner, George Winn, and rookie Dwayne Washington this preseason. By releasing him now, the Lions have at least given Ridley a shot to latch on somewhere else -- and perhaps offset some of the $250,000 guaranteed they owe him -- but he has not proven to be an effective back since shredding his knee in 2014. The 27-year-old could be nearing the end. With Ridley gone, Zenner is now locked in as the big-back complement to Ameer Abdullah. Today, 6:00 am
