• Mack Hollins 'very clearly' No. 4 receiver
    Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski believes fourth-rounder Mack Hollins is "very clearly" the Eagles' No. 4 receiver.

    Advice: Hollins was quiet this week, but he opened his career with four catches for 64 yards and an impressive catch-and-run touchdown in the first preseason game. That performance shows the kind of upside Hollins could provide if given the chance, and the three receivers ahead of him on the depth chart come with injury or performance question marks. Hollins is not worth drafting in redraft leagues at this point, but he is a name to watch and a great stash in Dynasty. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago

  • Reps split 'dead even' between Henne, Bortles
    A teammate said practice reps were split "dead even" between Chad Henne and Blake Bortles on Sunday.

    Advice: It is not a surprise considering both Bortles' terrible showing in the second preseason game and the myriad of reports suggesting Henne would take over the starting job, but it does confirm the Jaguars truly have opened up the competition. With Bortles struggling, that open competition likely will lead to Henne getting the start Week 1. That is a good thing for the Jaguars' skill players based on what we have seen so far this preseason. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago

    Advice: As do all outside observers and anyone who watched the team's first two preseason games. Coach Vance Joseph has said he wants the starter set before practices for the third preseason game, often viewed as the "dress rehearsal" for Week 1, so Legwold believes the coach could announce his decision on Monday.

Still, he expects the injury to clear up before Week 1. "It’s more pain management," Matthews said. "Let’s get the pain down and get all functional movement back and then when it’s just that one spot hurting, let’s protect that spot and go play football."

    Chargers RB Branden Oliver rushed seven times for 10 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Saints.

Averaging 1.4 yards-per-carry won't help to solidify this, but the Chargers' offensive line struggled to open up anything for all the running backs.

He was also utilized in the passing game, catching a ball in the flat and scampering for a 20-yard gain.

Bryant lost three yards on the first drive of the game, but flashed his big-play ability on a 20-yard reception down the sideline. Bryant played into the third quarter and looked good out there.

  • James Conner up & down in preseason debut
    Steelers rookie RB James Conner rushed 20 times for 98 yards and caught 1-of-4 targets for three yards on his preseason debut Sunday night.

    Advice: After a shoulder injury hobbled him for the first two weeks of camp, Conner worked behind Fitzgerald Toussaint on Sunday and has yet to earn the Steelers’ No. 2 back job. He dropped two passes and didn’t get rolling as a runner until Atlanta’s third-string defense came in, blew a chance at a huge run by falling down in the backfield, and failed to stay in bounds on a play where he needed to late in the fourth quarter. A third-round pick out of Pittsburgh, Conner’s job security is shaky. He should be given another long look in the Steelers’ third preseason game as Le’Veon Bell’s holdout continues, perhaps even getting some first-team reps with the Ben Roethlisberger group.

He’s an athlete," coach Vance Joseph said. "And Trevor, he was solid. He was Trevor. He made good decisions, his ball-placement was on point tonight, he controlled the huddle.

    Advice: The Cowboys continue to publicly back Moore as their No. 2 quarterback, though they haven't shown the same confidence in him behind closed doors. Moore has completed just 18-of-38 passes for 200 yards over his last two preseason games. With undrafted rookie Cooper Rush equally unprepared for backup duty, the Cowboys would be wise to scour the market for another arm.

    According to Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media, "it wouldn't be surprising" if LeGarrette Blount is among the Eagles' cuts.

    Advice: Lombardo also wonders if Wendell Smallwood's job is in jeopardy, hypothesizing that Smallwood may need to beat out UDFA Corey Clement. Blount has started both preseason games but has rushed for just 17 yards on nine carries. It's an admittedly small sample, though Blount hasn't shown much in camp and seems to be showing signs of fatigue after logging a career-high 299 carries last season. He's also not a great fit in Doug Pederson's offense, where backs are expected to play in the passing game.

The play was one the Eagles have run two different ways in practice and Jeffery seemed to be confused by it. "Anytime you miss the amount of time that he did, he's a little bit behind," said Groh. "Fortunately, we have time for him to catch up." Jeffery obviously isn't grasping the team's playbook as quickly as Groh had hoped, but he still has three weeks to cram before Week 1.

    Advice: Trubisky did not enter the game until late in the third quarter, with Mark Sanchez getting in one series between starter Mike Glennon and the rookie. Coming off a rampaging performance in his NFL debut, Trubisky had a nondescript night on Saturday. Half of his yardage came on a screen pass and an easy dump-off on a bootleg, and Benny Cunningham was wide open on his short touchdown pass. He also forced a throw to the sideline which probably should have been intercepted.

That series ended with a bad interception near the goal line in which Glennon stared down Kendall Wright, however, and he probably should have been picked again on the next drive. He saved his day somewhat by leading a short touchdown march to close out the half, hitting Wright on the same route which was picked earlier in the game.

    Advice: 1010 XL Jacksonville's Hays Carlyon had a similar suggestion Friday morning. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, Bortles has melted down this summer, first experiencing a "tired arm" last weekend -- perhaps an excuse by coach Doug Marrone to see more of Chad Henne or not -- and then a rock-bottom preseason effort Thursday night. Bortles missed wide-open big plays, and even his completions were a chore. Bortles' 2017 salary is guaranteed, but the Jaguars can't let Bortles on the field and expose him to injury, which would guarantee his $19 million salary for 2018. Henne is the favorite to start.

    Advice: "It's this simple: I'm looking for the best person to lead this offense," Marrone began. "It's right up there for grabs, and either person can take it. ... (Bortles has) got to go earn it." Marrone refused to even shut the door on third-stringer Brandon Allen.

  • Trubisky knows he has 'a lot of work to do'
    Mitchell Trubisky knows he still has "a lot of work to do."

    Advice: Trubisky was the talk of the first preseason week after completing 18-of-25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, but he is not getting too far ahead. "I was pleased with how I played," the rookie said, "but plenty more mistakes are going on during practice for me that I need to work on and continue to improve in my game." The Bears have been adamant about Mike Glennon starting all season, but their resolve will be tested if Trubisky continues to show well in the preseason. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:51 am

  • Paxton Lynch getting more first-team reps
    Paxton Lynch is "getting more first-team reps" this week.

    Advice: This was expected with Lynch slated to start Denver's second preseason game. Reports from Broncos-49ers joint practices are that Lynch has looked terrible in full-squad sessions. We expect Trevor Siemian to be Denver's Week 1 starter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:25 pm

  • Harold Henderson will handle Zeke's appeal
    The NFL has tabbed Harold Henderson to hear the appeal of Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension.

    Advice: Henderson regularly oversees appeals hearings for the league, and the NFL tried to push him as an objective, non-biased party by having NFL Network reporters tweet that Henderson reduced Greg Hardy's suspension from ten games to four. However, PFT's Mike Florio -- an attorney by trade -- notes that Henderson's presence in the case "significantly" drops the chances of Zeke having the suspension overturned. "At best, he'll get a mild reduction," Florio wrote. Florio also states Henderson's hiring "significantly" increases the chances Elliott eventually files a lawsuit. Elliott's appeal will be heard on August 29. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:15 am

  • Glennon 'strong favorite' to start the opener
    According to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, Mike Glennon remains the "strong favorite" to start the Bears' Week 1 opener against the Falcons.

    Advice: However, Biggs admits he "wouldn't rule out the possibility" that Trubisky is the one under center. Glennon was brutal in the preseason opener, throwing a pick-six and completing 2-of-8 passes total. Trubisky then came on and lit it up against the Broncos' backups with one of the best showings of the first week of the preseason. If it happens again, the pressure will continue to mount.

  • LeGarrette Blount having unimpressive camp
    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that LeGarrette Blount "hasn't exactly stood out" in Eagles camp.

    Advice: Reporter Jeff McLane makes the smart observation that Blount's power game will never be particularly eye-catching in a practice setting, but couldn't help but notice the degree to which he hasn't stood out. For their part, the Eagles weren't alarmed enough to keep Ryan Mathews around. Blount is an RB2 as the Eagles' short-yardage back, but already a hit-or-miss player, he's going to be even more inconsistent outside of the Patriots' elite offense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:53 pm

  • Ezekiel Elliott's appeal likely to be Aug. 29
    ESPN's Adam Schefter forecasts Ezekiel Elliott's appeal hearing to take place Aug. 29.

    Advice: It's good to have clarity on the date, but this being the NFL, we'll likely get an appeal to the appeal. With the situation so uncertain, fantasy owners should abide by the facts on the ground. The facts on the ground are that Elliott is suspended for the first six games of the 2017 season.

  • Ezekiel Elliott officially appeals 6-game ban
    Ezekiel Elliott has officially appealed his six-game suspension.

    Advice: Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, a hearing must be scheduled within the next 10 days. Recent history — hello Tom Brady — suggests this will become a drawn out saga that allows Elliott to play in 2017, but the truth is, there's no real way of knowing how things might unfold. There's a chance Elliott ends up playing all 16 games this season, but we simply don't know. For now, it would be unwise to factor out Elliott's looming ban in fantasy drafts.

  • Bills hopeful Matthews back sooner than later
    Bills coach Sean McDermott said the team is "hopeful" Jordan Matthews (chest) will return "sooner than later."

    Advice: Matthews is dealing with a chip fracture in his sternum which will sideline him at least through this week and likely more. It sounds like the Bills expect him back for Week 1, but the missed time is a big concern as he attempts to settle in with his new team. With uncertainty surrounding Matthews, Zay Jones looks like a good flier in the 12th round. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:23 am

  • QBs coach: DeShone Kizer not ready to start
    Browns QB coach David Lee said second-round QB DeShone Kizer has improved but is not yet ready to start.

    Advice: "He’s a lot better than he was in the spring, but he’s still not there," Lee said. "I’m looking forward to watching his progression in all these areas we’re talking about in these next two games, and we’ll see where he is then." Even if Kizer is not ready now, it does sound like the Browns are open to the possibility he will be when the season opens in four weeks. Brock Osweiler started the first preseason game, but coach Hue Jackson will not decide on his starter for the second until Wednesday or Thursday. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 6:58 am

  • Jordan Reed hopes to return next week
    Jordan Reed (toe) said he hopes to return next week.

    Advice: "It feels great," Reed said of his troublesome toe. "It’s starting to get way better now. I’m just making sure I can do everything I can in my power to make sure it’s comfortable when I do get back on the field." The tight end also thinks he will be ready to play in at least one of the preseason games, but he admits that is "up to the coaches and training staff." Reed's injury history is a major concern, but he has the upside to pay off his TE4 draft slot. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 5:43 am

  • Jordan Matthews has chip fracture in sternum
    New Bills WR Jordan Matthews is "week to week" with a "chip fracture in his sternum."

    Advice: Matthews suffered the injury less than 15 minutes into his first practice with the team on Sunday. "Week to week" is not a telling timetable, and it is unclear if Matthews will return for Week 1. Even if he does, it sounds like he is going to miss multiple weeks of practice, a major concern as he attempts to settle in with his new team. It is not inconceivable second-rounder Zay Jones opens the season as the No. 1 option. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 5:29 am

  • Jordan Reed likes new orthotics/cleats
    Jordan Reed said the special new cleats and orthotics he's tried out have made a "big difference" for his sprained big toe.

    Advice: "I'll be out there shortly," said Reed, who remains on active/PUP. It still sounds like Reed is merely day to day, and the Redskins are playing it safe by keeping him out of practice. Getting Reed camp reps isn't a big priority. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 2:55 pm

  • Report: NFL done looking into Zeke bar brawl
    PFT's Mike Florio reports the NFL's investigation into suspended RB Ezekiel Elliott's involvement in a July 16 bar brawl is closed.

    Advice: Elliott was subject to the league's personal conduct policy for allegedly breaking the nose of a DJ at a Dallas nightclub. The NFL looked into the case, but couldn't come to any conclusions. For now, it sounds like Elliott has avoided further suspension. Elliott is still facing potential discipline for his St. Patrick's Day incident. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 4:19 pm

  • NFL could pursue further discipline vs. Zeke
    According to the Dallas Morning News, the NFL still "could" investigate suspended RB Ezekiel Elliott's involvement in a July 16 bar brawl and "pursue further action" against him.

    Advice: Elliott's current six-game ban was applied only because he violated the NFL's domestic violence policy. Elliott also violated the NFL's personal conduct policy by exposing a woman's breast on St. Patrick's Day, and the league's investigation into the July 16 bar brawl has yet to be resolved. It's a reminder that Elliott is far from out of the woods with multiple violations of multiple league polices and existing investigations still hanging over his head. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 11:57 am

  • Jordan Reed gets special orthotics for cleat
    Jordan Reed (toe) had a special orthotics made for his left cleat.

    Advice: Dealing with a toe injury since last year, Reed will try out the new footwear for the next couple of days to see if it helps. Coach Jay Gruden said the team will reevaluate the situation after their second preseason game next weekend, strongly suggesting Reed will be sidelined until at least then. It remains likely the tight end is back on the field before Week 1, but this issue along with his injury history makes Reed a risky investment in the fifth round. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 10:51 am

  • Tomlin ready to get Bryant going in practice
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Martavis Bryant will be a full participant in Sunday's practice.

    Advice: "We're going to put our foot on the gas and proceed," Tomlin said. "He's physically ready." It is a great sign Bryant is ready for a full practice after being forced to sit out the early part of camp, and it sounds like he could see some action in the second preseason game. Already priced optimistically in the fourth round, Bryant's ADP could soar if he explodes in the preseason. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 8:43 am

  • Schefter: Elliott 'ready for a long battle'
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ezekiel Elliott is "ready for a long battle" regarding his six-game suspension.

    Advice: Elliott already released a statement saying he will appeal, but Schefter reports that "might just be [the] first step in an ongoing ordeal," suggesting Zeke is willing to go to court to fight the ban. Elliott is worth an early-round fantasy pick even with the suspension looming, but it remains possible he either serves a lesser ban this year or is able to postpone the suspension the entire season. Like Le'Veon Bell last year, Elliott will likely end up a value when it is all said and done. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 7:37 am

  • Photos emerge of bruises on Zeke accuser
    TMZ obtained eight photos of bruising on the body of suspended RB Ezekiel Elliott's domestic abuse accuser.

    Advice: This certainly won't help Elliott's chances of winning an appeal. Ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson took photos of bruising on her arms, hands, neck, and legs following the alleged domestic incident. At the time, Elliott told police officers the woman was injured during a bar fight with someone else. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 3:46 pm

  • Ravens expect to have Flacco for Week 1
    Joe Flacco (back) will not play in the preseason but is expected to start Week 1 against the Bengals.

    Advice: Flacco received good news after having his back reexamined. He'll miss the Ravens' preseason slate as a precaution but should resume practicing at some point during camp and expects to be a go for Week 1. Flacco's improvement should come as a huge relief to Baltimore's pass-catching corps including Jeremy Maclin, Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman and Danny Woodhead. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 1:16 pm

  • As expected: Zeke to appeal six-game ban
    According to a statement released by his lawyers, Ezekiel Elliott will appeal his six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

    Advice: Elliott had up to three business days to file an appeal following the announcement of Friday's six-game ban. "Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL's decision," said attorneys Frank Salzano and Scott Rosenblum in a joint statement. "The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it 'cherry picks' so called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence." Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports is hearing that Elliott is willing to take his appeal "through courts if he has to," just as Tom Brady did when he was suspended for his role in DeflateGate. Given how slowly the wheels of justice move in the NFL—Elliott's investigation began last summer—this saga could drag on for quite some time. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 12:26 pm

  • NFL: Elliott violated personal conduct policy
    In its letter explaining Zeke Elliott's six-game ban, the NFL cited Elliott's decision to expose a woman's breast on St. Patrick's Day a violation of the league's personal conduct policy.

    Advice: However, the league explicitly states Elliott was not disciplined for this incident as part of his six-game ban. The six-game ban is tied entirely to 2016 allegations against Elliott for domestic abuse. This is a reminder that Elliott has committed multiple violations of league policy and will remain at risk of future discipline. He absolutely must begin walking a tightened rope.

  • Bills get Jordan Matthews from PHI for Darby
    Bills acquired WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for CB Ronald Darby.

    Advice: Clearly on the outs with Philly heading into the final year of his rookie deal, there had been persistent trade rumors surrounding Matthews, and the Eagles finally pulled the trigger on a deal which returns a starting corner they desperately needed. The move also works out for Matthews, who should immediately slot in as the No. 1 option for a now Sammy Watkins-less offense. Coming off the board in the 11th round before the trade, Matthews should be valued much closer to the sixth or seventh moving forward, and he has the upside for more if the new coaching staff opens up the passing game.

  • Hue Jackson not ready to crown DeShone Kizer
    Coach Hue Jackson said "it's way too early to talk about" making second-rounder DeShone Kizer the starter after his impressive preseason opener.

    Advice: Kizer and fellow rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky were the stars of Thursday night's opening slate of preseason games. Kizer led a comeback win in the fourth quarter and launched a couple deep balls -- a 45-yard touchdown and 52-yarder down to the one-yard line -- while showing his ability to avoid the blitz and create in the pocket. But it's important to remember it came against third-stringers. Brock Osweiler started and was 6-of-14 for 42 yards and three three-and-outs. He isn't long for the starting job. Kizer is much more the future in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 6:34 am
