• Giants UDFA WR Washington to work with ones
    Giants undrafted WRs Corey Washington and Marcus Harris are expected to get some work with the first-team offense in Friday's fourth preseason game.

    Advice: It's expected to come at the expense of Jerrel Jernigan, who is in danger of being cut. Washington has been the Giants' best receiver this summer, reeling in all seven of his targets for 116 yards and three scores. Washington is fully expected to make the 53-man roster. Harris is likely competing with Mario Manningham. Rotoworld.com

    ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky considers seventh-round WR Jeff Janis a lock to make the 53-man roster.

    Advice: Janis has had a strong camp and then scored a 34-yard catch-and-run touchdown last weekend against the Rams. There's no way he'd sneak through waivers and onto the Packers' practice squad. Janis will likely open the season as the Packers' No. 5 receiver. He needs to be owned in all Dynasty formats.

  • Jets assistants disappointed in Vick's drive
    According to Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated, some Jets coaches have expressed disappointment that Michael Vick didn't show up more hell-bent on winning the starting job.

    Advice: "I had some great years and played in some great games and went through a lot," Vick said. "Now it's an opportunity for me to refresh myself and take a step back away from the game." Vick is resigned to the fact that he's Geno Smith's backup, but some want more urgency out of him since he's one play away from being the starter. At 34, Vick seems to admit his time is running out.

  • Jeremy Hill likely to work with ones Sunday
    Bengals OC Hue Jackson said rookie RB Jeremy Hill is "worthy of playing" with the starting offense and will likely get some work with the ones in Sunday's third preseason game.

    Advice: Hill has worked with the second- and third-team offenses through the first two weeks of the preseason, though Jackson said he actually thought Hill had already gotten some run with the ones. Jackson isn't concerned about Hill's ability to sync with the starters, saying he thinks "that's a little overrated -- runners run." While BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been the second back through the rotation the first two games, Hill's clearly the more talented runner. He's over his shoulder "injury." We feel comfortable projecting Hill as the 1B to Gio Bernard's 1A. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Big Ben's score, a 27-yard strike to Heath Miller, came deep into the second half against the Eagles' second-team defense. Roethlisberger and the Steelers' first-team struggled mightily against Philly's starters, with Big Ben tossing a horrid pick on an ill-advised freelance. He also showed noticeably-little chemistry with No. 2 receiver Markus Wheaton. Barring a surprise appearance in the Steelers' preseason finale, Roethlisberger finishes August 24-of-37 for 328 yards (8.86 YPA), three scores and a pick. He's a low-end QB1 with top-eight upside.

The good news is, he ran in three-wide sets with the first-team offense, and lined up both out of the slot and in the backfield. There's a chance Matthews could get some run in next week's preseason finale, but if not, Philly's slot receiver finishes August with 15 catches for 134 yards. He's an upside WR4/5. Rotoworld.com

    Nick Foles completed 19-of-29 passes for 179 yards, a touchdown and interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

    Advice: The Eagles' starter should be done for the preseason. Foles got off to a rocky start, missing low, wide and high on the Eagles' opening possession. He quickly settled down, however, working the middle of the field and getting the ball out extremely quick on the Eagles' numerous screens. His pick came on a botched screen, while his touchdown was a LeSean McCoy catch-and-run on a reverse screen. If Foles is indeed done for August, he finishes with more picks than he threw in all of 2013 (three), but 304 yards and two scores on 48 attempts (6.3 YPA). He's a locked-in QB1. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The 50th overall pick in the 2012 draft, this should solidify Pead as a bust in St. Louis. He had been relegated to special teams after falling behind Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham, and rookie Tre Mason on the running back chart. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Pead suffers leg injury
    Isaiah Pead was forced from Saturday's preseason game with a leg injury

    Advice: Pead got hurt on a kick return in the first quarter. It was a non-contact injury, so this has potential to be serious. Pead had to be helped off the field and was later carted to the locker room. The Rams should provide an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Derek Carr suffers concussion against Lions
    Raiders rookie QB Derek Carr left the team's second preseason game with a concussion.

    Advice: Originally thought to be a rib injury, coach Dennis Allen confirmed the rookie was concussed. He will have to pass the league's concussion protocol before returning to the field. Carr has completed 19-of-32 passes for 183 yards with one touchdown and one interception this preseason. After originally inserting Carr with the first-team offense -- following an abysmal outing by Matt Schaub -- Carr was concussed behind Oakland's second-team offensive line. Rotoworld.com

  • Derek Carr exits late with rib injury
    Derek Carr completed 9-of-16 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game before being removed in the fourth quarter with a rib injury.

    Advice: Carr outperformed Matt Schaub, who threw his first interception of the preseason. He played deep into the second half, but was removed after getting shaken up on a hit by Larry Webster. Carr has completed 19-of-32 passes for 183 yards (9.6 YPA) through his first two preseason appearances. With Schaub struggling, Carr could make starts early in 2014. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Matthews: 9 targets/9 catches/104 yds
    Eagles rookie Jordan Matthews exploded for nine catches and 104 yards in Friday night's second preseason game.

    Advice: He caught 9-of-9 targets one week after dropping three passes in Philly's preseason opener. Coach Chip Kelly suggested Matthews' rough debut was due to nerves. The second-rounder showed zero fear Friday in New England, shining at various wideout spots and racking up game-high receiving stats across the board. Matthews remains on track to open the year as the Eagles' slot receiver. Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Sanchez continues hot preseason
    Mark Sanchez completed 11-of-12 passes for 117 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Eagles' second preseason game.

    Advice: He carved up the Patriots' second string after doing the same to the Bears' backups a week ago. Through two exhibition affairs, Sanchez is 18-of-22 passing for 196 yards, the two scores, and one pick. It's fair to wonder if Sanchez would become a fantasy QB1 in Chip Kelly's offense if Nick Foles went down. Rotoworld.com

  • Foles rebounds after shaky preseason opener
    Nick Foles completed 8-of-10 passes for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' second preseason game Friday night.

    Advice: Foles wasn't perfect, but it was a nice step forward after his two-pick exhibition opener. He kept the chains moving and found Zach Ertz for a six-yard TD in the second quarter. Through two preseason games, Foles is 14-of-19 passing for 124 yards, the one score, and two interceptions. Foles' ADP currently sits in the early seventh round. We'd like him better about a round later. Rotoworld.com

  • Browns plan to name starting QB on Tuesday
    Browns coach Mike Pettine says Tuesday is the target date to name Cleveland's Week 1 starting quarterback.

    Advice: The Browns play the Steelers in Week 1. Pettine said a group consisting of OC Kyle Shanahan, QBs coach Dowell Loggains, and GM Ray Farmer will have say in naming the starter. PFT's Mike Florio also expects owner Jimmy Haslam to have some say, which could work in rookie Johnny Manziel's favor. The Week 1 starter will likely hinge on the performances of Brian Hoyer and Manziel in Monday's second preseason game. Cleveland visits Washington on MNF. Rotoworld.com

  • Sproles to play about 20 snaps per game
    Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official website envisions Darren Sproles playing roughly 20 snaps per game on offense.

    Advice: That sounds about right. Sproles averaged 35 and 25 snaps per game with the Saints in 2012 and 2013, respectively. He's not getting any younger at 31. Sproles will operate as LeSean McCoy's change-of-pace back and work in the slot on occasion. He could have some standalone PPR value as a space back, but his early-seventh round ADP is a little too rich for our blood. Rotoworld.com

  • Browns: QB decision could come next week
    The Browns could name their starting quarterback as early as Tuesday.

    Advice: The Browns play the Redskins on Monday evening. "I'm sure we'll sit down at some point next week, maybe more than likely later in the day on Tuesday and get our heads together and see what we come up with," coach Mike Pettine said. The earlier the Browns name their starting quarterback, the more likely it is to be Brian Hoyer over Johnny Manziel. The fact that Pettine is already talking about potentially reaching a decision next week doesn't bode well for Johnny Football. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Manziel was late to team meeting Mon.
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Johnny Manziel was late to a team meeting on Monday.

    Advice: Mort is under the impression Manziel and a few other Browns rookies simply "misread the schedule," but it's believed Johnny Football was fined. Adam Schefter reported Thursday night that there "seems to be a feeling within the organization that Brian Hoyer wins" the Browns' starting job "in the event of a tie." Schefter believes Cleveland's second preseason game will essentially decide the battle, because all along the plan has been to pick a starter before the third exhibition game. There are no indications that Manziel's tardiness will play a role in coach Mike Pettine's quarterback decision. Rotoworld.com

  • Packers writer: Janis 'going to be a player'
    ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde predicts Packers seventh-round WR Jeff Janis "is going to be a player when he finds consistency."

    Advice: Janis has come on strong since returning to practice after a bout with Shingles. He's a 6-foot-3, 219-pound athletic freak with 4.42 wheels to go along with a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. He got some run with the Packers' first-team offense earlier this week, and has made highlight catches every day. According to beat reporters, Janis hadn't had a dropped pass in team drills before Monday's practice. There'll likely have to be injuries for Janis to make a year-one impact, but he's a player to target in Dynasty. Rotoworld.com

  • UDFA Corey Washington making waves
    Undrafted rookie WR Corey Washington has "done some special things over the last week," according to OC Ben McAdoo.

    Advice: It's getting harder and harder to ignore the buzz on Washington, who is trying to pull a Victor Cruz and make the Giants out of tiny Newberry College. Washington does have intriguing measurables at 6'4/214 with 4.5s speed. And through two preseason games, he has four catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns. Washington has gone from camp body to underdog story. Rotoworld.com

  • Mornhinweg open to Vick as 'change of pace'
    Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg is open to the idea of Michael Vick as a "change-of-pace quarterback."

    Advice: Everything that's old is new again in New York. "I suspect, looking forward, there will be times where you see a little bit of it," Mornhinweg said about Vick as a potential curveball to Geno Smith. If nothing else, Vick would actually have a pace to change the game to, unlike former Jets "change-of-pace" QB Tim Tebow. It's unlikely to be a featured package for Gang Green. Rotoworld.com

  • Foles 'decent, not great' for most of camp
    According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Nick Foles has looked "decent, not great" for the majority of training camp.

    Advice: Reporter Jeff McLane made the same observation 11 days ago. Foles struggled in Friday's preseason opener, tossing two interceptions in three possessions. The third resulted in a punt. The August struggles obviously pale in comparison to Foles' 2013 accomplishments, but it's not a question of if Foles will regress, but by how much. Foles' Yahoo ADP of No. 62 is extremely optimistic. Rotoworld.com

Janis has been making consistent noise since returning from a bout with shingles last Monday. An intriguing size/speed prospect at 6-foot-3, 219 pounds with 4.42 wheels, Janis is on the way up in Dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com
