  • Prosise works as Seahawks third-down back
    C.J. Prosise rushed four times for 23 yards in his preseason debut Thursday night.

    Advice: Although he didn't quite stuff the stat sheet, this was a big step forward for Prosise after an injury-plagued spring and beginning to camp. He worked as the Seahawks' first-team third-down back behind Christine Michael, and also mixed in on some second-and-long plays. Neither Michael nor Thomas Rawls is adept in the passing game, so Prosise could have a Week 1 role. Prosise should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and belongs on re-draft watch lists.

  • Alfred Morris rushes for 17 yards vs. Seattle
    Alfred Morris rushed five times for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason game, adding two catches for 11 yards.

    Advice: Morris entered after Ezekiel Elliott torched the Seahawks' stout first-team defense in his preseason debut. Still only 27, Morris should have plenty left in the tank as a runner — he's rushed 21 times for 113 yards this preseason — but is a distant second behind Zeke on the depth chart. Morris is a pure handcuff, albeit one that will have serious fantasy value behind Dallas' dominant line were Elliott to go down with injury. Rotoworld.com 49 minutes ago

  • Cole Beasley reels in 4-of-6 targets Thursday
    Cole Beasley caught 4-of-6 targets for 30 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game Thursday.

    Advice: With Dez Bryant inactive, Beasley saw a little more attention than normal from Dak Prescott, who replaced Tony Romo (back/coaches' decision) after just three snaps. Beasley was leading the team in targets when he exited early in the second half. Beasley was targeted deep on one throw, but it fell incomplete. He simply isn't an option far away from the line of scrimmage. Beasley is expected to man the slot for Dallas, but it's not going to translate to big numbers. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago

  • Dak Prescott's preseason: 7 TDs, 0 turnovers
    Dak Prescott completed 17-of-23 passes for 116 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' third preseason game, adding two rushes for 12 yards.

    Advice: Through three exhibition contests, Prescott is 39-of-50 passing (78.0 percent) for 454 yards (9.08 YPA) and a 5:0 TD-to-INT ratio with 53 yards and two more scores on seven carries. That makes seven all-purpose touchdowns for Dak, compared to zero turnovers. The sample size remains small and Prescott has been put in consistently favorable situations by Dallas' coaching staff, but he also warrants recognition as one of the NFL's best preseason stories. He particularly excelled under pressure in Thursday night's game at Seattle, keeping the offense on the move despite the absence of Dez Bryant (concussion). Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago

  • Tyler Lockett goes 3/41/1 in dress rehearsal
    Tyler Lockett caught 3-of-3 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: Lockett's score was a nine-yard grab where he worked himself open in the end zone for a scrambling Russell Wilson. It was the kind of big play that's become Lockett's signature, though he still appears to be third on the depth chart behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. He was even out-snapped by Paul Richardson with the first-team offense. Lockett is one of the league's most dynamic playmakers, but the Seahawks could be reluctant to overexpose him on offense because of how dangerous he is on special teams. Lockett is going to have some big fantasy weeks, but could be too unpredictable to be a reliable WR3. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:15 pm

  • P. Richardson enters Seahawks WR rotation
    Seahawks WR Paul Richardson caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's third preseason game.

    Advice: His touchdown came from eight yards out on a rainbow from Russell Wilson. A 4.4-flat speedster whose first two NFL seasons were washed out by injuries, Richardson was a second-round pick in the 2014 draft. He played more first-team snaps than Tyler Lockett in Thursday's exhibition game and looks to have secured a role in Seattle's receiver rotation. Richardson is worth stashing in deep Dynasty leagues. He is a threat to Lockett's 2016 re-draft value. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:12 pm

  • Jermaine Kearse catches 3 passes in tune up
    Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-4 targets for 32 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Kearse out-snapped Tyler Lockett 21-10 in the first half. Lockett is undeniably on the rise, but Kearse appears to have him edged in two-receiver sets to begin the season. Seattle didn't give Kearse a three-year, $13.5 million contract for nothing. Lockett is still the preferred fantasy own, of course. Kearse's grabs this evening were his lone receptions in three preseason games. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:08 pm

  • C-Mike's preseason: 24-157 rushing (6.5 YPC)
    Christine Michael rushed seven times for 58 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game Thursday night.

    Advice: A resurgent C-Mike now has 24 preseason carries for 157 yards, good for a 6.5 yards-per-carry average. He has both grinded out tough yards and showed big-play ability this August while earning the trust of the Seahawks' coaching staff. If you aren't taking Michael serious by now, your head is in the sand. Michael has dominated first-team snaps with Russell Wilson. Even if it isn't as the Seahawks' starter over Rawls, Michael has earned a meaningful early-season role in Seattle's post-Marshawn Lynch backfield. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 pm

  • Russell Wilson closes preseason in style
    Russell Wilson completed 16-of-21 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's preseason game, rushing three times for two yards.

    Advice: We'd say he's ready for the regular season. The highlight was an absurd third quarter scramble where Wilson bought time for seemingly minutes on end before finally finding Tyler Lockett in the end zone for a nine-yard touchdown. It was the kind of play that sets Wilson apart, and has his fantasy arrow still screaming upward after years of continual improvement. Wilson finishes the summer 24-of-38 for 303 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He's an elite QB1. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:03 pm

  • Baldwin catches four in preseason tune-up
    Doug Baldwin caught 4-of-6 targets for 29 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: His six targets were easily a team-high among first-teamers. Baldwin could have had a bigger night, but Russell Wilson barely overshot him on a deep ball down the right sideline near the end zone. If Baldwin is done for the preseason, he'll end it with six catches for 52 yards on nine targets. It's incredibly difficult to see Baldwin catching 14 touchdowns like he did a year ago, but he remains the clear-cut No. 1 option in Seattle and a very solid WR2 in the early part of drafts.

  • Terrance Williams catches one pass vs. Hawks
    Terrance Williams caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game against the Seahawks.

    Advice: Williams played the entire first half in a game Dez Bryant wasn't even active, and he still saw just two looks. He could have had a much bigger night, as Dak Prescott hung up a pretty deep ball down the middle to Williams, but the fourth-year receiver didn't come back to the ball. He waited for it to get to him, and the defensive back was able to knock it away. It's plays like this that make Williams more of a JAG. He'll have a couple big weeks, but they're impossible to predict. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:44 pm

  • Hardy leaves with ankle injury
    Justin Hardy exited the Falcons' third preseason game with an ankle injury.

    Advice: The injury isn't known to be severe. On Thursday night, Hardy worked as the Falcons' first-team slot receiver between Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu in three-wide sets, catching just 1-of-4 targets for 11 yards. Barring an injury to Julio or Sanu, Hardy won't factor into the fantasy football equation this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:23 pm

  • Tamme remains Falcons pass-catching TE
    Jacob Tamme secured 2-of-2 targets for 16 yards in the Falcons' third preseason game.

    Advice: Tamme continued to run as Atlanta's first-team receiving tight end, ahead of rookie Austin Hooper. Hooper did get action with the ones, but lost a fumble following a reception up the seam and isn't posing a noticeable threat to Tamme yet. Tamme finished 2015 with a 59-657-1 receiving line across 15 games. His 2016 projection should be in the same range, or perhaps slightly lower. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:07 pm

  • Landry racks up 40 yards in a half
    Jarvis Landry caught 4-of-5 targets for 40 yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game.

    Advice: He racked up these numbers in one half of action. The Dolphins' first team rested when the third quarter began. Landry has nine catches for 74 yards in the preseason. Particularly with DeVante Parker falling behind Kenny Stills, Landry is the clear-cut favorite to lead Miami in receiving this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:54 pm

  • Tannehill closes preseason on solid note
    Ryan Tannehill completed 20-of-29 passes for 155 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: He added two carries for 22 yards. They're mediocre stats, but the Dolphins' coaching staff probably liked what it saw from its quarterback. Tannehill appeared more in command than he's been in years past, going so far as to — gasp — audible. His decision-making still wasn't the best — the pick was a tipped ball thrown directly at a lineman — but he showed his usual nice connection with Jarvis Landry in addition to Kenny Stills. Tannehill closes the book on the exhibition season 34-of-53 for 325 yards (6.13 YPA), two touchdowns and a pick. He's a mid-range QB2 under quarterback whisperer Adam Gase.

  • Jordan Cameron drops pair of targets vs. ATL
    Jordan Cameron caught 1-of-4 targets for six yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game against the Falcons on Thursday.

    Advice: Cameron dropped two of the four passes that came his way. Coach Adam Gase even tried to scheme him a touchdown from inside the five-yard line by lining Cameron up by himself on the right side and sending four receivers to the left. Tannehill's pass ended up hitting Cameron in the face mask. According to Dolphins beat reporters, Cameron's summer has been brutal and filled with dropped passes at practice. Dion Sims deserves a longer look. Cameron is legitimately stealing money in Miami, collecting $6 million this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:52 pm

  • Forte to be 'major factor' in passing game
    ESPN New York reports the Jets want Matt Forte to be a "major factor" in the passing game.

    Advice: Catching the ball is one of Forte's best skills, but it's also the primary reason the Jets re-signed Bilal Powell to a three-year, $11.25 million contract. Forte caught 102 passes in the Bears' warped 2014 offense, but saw that number plummet to 44 last season. 50 seems like a reasonable over/under for his receptions. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:58 pm

  • Sashi: Browns 'not looking to trade' Gordon
    Browns EVP Sashi Brown the team is "not looking to trade" Josh Gordon.

    Advice: ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reported Wednesday there is a "cynical point of view out there" that the Browns leaked a report about trade offers for Gordon in order to drum up more interest. Brown said he was not going to "entertain" that "speculation." It is important to note, however, Brown did say every player has a price, and saying the team is "not looking to trade" is considerably different than saying Gordon will not be traded. Gordon will most likely stay in Cleveland, but it is not a given. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:35 am
