  • Miles Austin 'hasn't stood out' in camp
    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Miles Austin "hasn't stood out enough" in Eagles camp.

    Advice: The 10th-year veteran is no higher than fourth on the depth chart, and could begin the year as low as fifth or sixth. Austin could be an early-season inactive if coach Chip Kelly doesn't see a role for him on special teams. Austin still has fine hands, but has lost a step or three since his prime. He should remain well off the re-draft radar this season. Austin's $2.5 million salary ($1 million guaranteed) will probably ensure his place on the 53-man roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:47 pm

  • Rashad Greene could open year as No. 3 WR
    Fifth-rounder Rashad Greene could begin the season as the Jaguars' No. 3 receiver.

    Advice: Marqise Lee remains week to week with a hamstring injury, and Greene has come on after a slow start to camp. "(He's) making strides," said WRs coach Jerry Sullivan. "He has a lot of tools and we like what we see." Greene missed the Jags' first preseason game before catching two passes for 14 yards in the second. Regardless of Greene's Week 1 title, his biggest rookie contributions should come on special teams. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:36 pm

  • 'No timetable' for Breshad Perriman's return
    Speaking Thursday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said there's "no timetable" for Breshad Perriman's (sprained PCL) return, and that his recovery gone slower than expected.

    Advice: Perriman should miss the entire preseason, and is looking mighty questionable for Week 1. It's a disaster for a team with no receiver depth to speak of. It should ensure Marlon Brown's roster spot. If you're drafting this weekend, Perriman should be treated as a boom-or-bust WR4. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:51 am

  • Tevin Coleman will play on Saturday
    Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) will play in Saturday's game against the Dolphins.

    Advice: Coleman missed the Falcons' first two exhibition contests. Coleman has a shot at a big role this season, but has set himself way behind by missing the majority of camp. As of now, he's not a realistic RB3 for the season's first month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:27 am

  • Rivera hints Funchess will replace Benjamin
    Panthers coach Ron Rivera hinted the team is planning on rookie WR Devin Funchess replacing Kelvin Benjamin (ACL).

    Advice: "The thing we’re waiting for is for Devin to be healthy and get him out on the football field," Rivera said. "He runs a lot of the same type of routes. He’s almost as imposing a target as Kelvin and the biggest thing with him is the confidence that he plays with as he develops." OC Mike Shula said the plan is to replace Benjamin with a committee, but it sounds like Funchess will get most of the snaps in Benjamin's old "X" position. The jury is still out on if Funchess can be an effective wide receiver in the NFL, but volume alone could make him a value at his WR38 draft price. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:47 am
