    • Brandon Marshall caught four passes for 37 yards in the Bears' third preseason game Thursday night in Seattle.
      Advice: He saw seven targets, while Alshon Jeffery saw eight -- all from Jay Cutler. Moving all around the formation, Marshall played X and Z receiver as well as the slot. His first big catch went for a nine-yard gain in Seahawks slot CB Jeremy Lane's coverage on Chicago's opening drive. Marshall also got by Richard Sherman on a second-quarter double move for a gain of 21. He has 10 grabs for 72 yards on the exhibition season.

    • Brandon Marshall will be flying to New York every Tuesday during the season to film Showtime's "Inside the NFL."
      Advice: It's not ideal for Marshall to be spending his off day taking two flights weekly, but we trust that it won't be a problem. He's still in the prime for wideouts at age 30, hasn't missed a game since 2010 and keeps his body in peak condition. "He asked me about it. I trust him to make decisions that are in the best interests of the team first," said coach Marc Trestman. "I know Brandon. I know he'll do that."

    • Kenbrell Thompkins started the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night, catching 2-of-3 targets for 35 yards.
      Advice: Thompkins worked ahead of Brandon LaFell, though both players saw extensive time with the first-team offense. Thompkins dropped a wide-open look in the middle of the field in the second quarter, but Tom Brady came back to him on the very next play for a 14-yard gain. Brady has recently expressed confidence in the second-year wideout, and it is not inconceivable Thompkins holds onto the "X" receiver job even when (if) Aaron Dobson gets healthy. Thompkins has 6 catches for 78 yards and a touchdown this preseason.

    • Tom Brady praised Kenbrell Thompkins after the second-year wideout caught three passes for 32 yards and a score during the Patriots' second preseason game.
      Advice: "I've got so much confidence in him and what he's been able to do, and continue to achieve," Brady said. "So hopefully there will be a lot more of those [touchdowns]." With Aaron Dobson (foot) still out, Thompkins has made the most of his starting opportunities. He will be relegated to the bench if Dobson ever gets healthy, but for now is penciled in as a starter in three-wide sets.

    • Running as the Patriots' starting "X" receiver, Kenbrell Thompkins secured 3-of-4 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in Friday night's second preseason game.
      Advice: The second-year UDFA is gobbling up first-team reps with Aaron Dobson still coming back from a foot injury. Dobson is a clearly-superior talent, but has obvious health concerns. We're still not recommending Thompkins as a re-draft pick. Dobson is a better target at his late-13th/early-14th-round ADP.

    • Golden Tate had three catches for 36 yards in the Lions' third preseason game Friday night.
      Advice: Tate was featured in the short-passing game and had a team-high four targets. He's locked in as the No. 2 receiver and is going to get a lot of single coverage opposite Calvin Johnson. Playing in a pass-heavy scheme, Tate has a good chance to improve on his 64/898/5 line from 2013. He currently has an ADP in the seventh round.

    • Lions WR Golden Tate caught all three of his targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Friday night's preseason game against the Raiders.
      Advice: Tate burned Tarell Brown for an early 28-yard score, and made a first-down grab on the Lions' second scoring drive. Shackled by the Seahawks' run-heavy scheme early in his career, Tate is poised to post career highs across the board in Detroit's pass-happy offense. He is a value at the end of the seventh round.
