• Tyrod Taylor throws two interceptions
    Tyrod Taylor completed 8-of-18 passes for 53 yards and 2 interceptions.

    Advice: Taylor's first interception came from a deflection on a blitz. His second interception came from an underthrow on a broken play. Beyond the two interceptions, Taylor was under pressure on a large portion of his throws. This was not an encouraging outing from the Bills starting offense as they struggled to get much of anything going. Rotoworld.com 45 minutes ago

    Advice: This was Jeffery's first time playing in a preseason game with the Eagles. His first two targets and only incompletions were bad overthrows by Wentz.

Parker also muffed a screen on 3rd-and-forever. Frankly, Cutler looked to be playing pitch and catch with Parker like he did Alshon Jeffery in Chicago.

    Jay Cutler completed 3-of-6 passes for 24 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

    Advice: The numbers don't tell the whole story, as Cutler had a 31-yard completion to DeVante Parker called back by penalty. The Dolphins also got trapped into a 3rd-and-27 thanks to a pair of holding calls. Cutler came out assertive, aggressively throwing the ball down the field and locking onto Parker like he was an Alshon Jeffery clone. It was two drives in a mid-August exhibition game, but it was promising. The Dolphins will remain run heavy, but their passing attack is going to look much different under aggressive Cutler than timid Ryan Tannehill. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:37 pm

"Every week we tailor it some to the opponent, some to who may be playing, skill-wise, O-line-wise, quarterback-wise and all those type of things all go into it." In Tolzien's one start last season, the Colts focused much more on the short passing game, with 16 of his 22 completions going for 10 yards or less. T.Y. Hilton managed just three catches for 54 yards in that game and has seen his averages go down across the board when playing without Andrew Luck.

He will likely be ready to go for training camp next season. Jay Cutler will take over as the starting quarterback. Cutler has supported numerous top-24 fantasy receivers in his career, so fantasy players should not bump Dolphins skill players too far down their boards. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:23 am

  • Mahomes has big play called back, throws TD
    Patrick Mahomes completed 7-of-9 passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' preseason opener.

    Advice: Mahomes was the third quarterback through the rotation in his NFL debut, entering the game in the second quarter after Alex Smith and Tyler Bray. The rookie appeared to have started his career with a bang, hooking up with Demarcus Robinson for a 41-yard gain down the right sideline, but it was called back on a penalty. It was a relatively quiet performance the rest of the way, but he led a short field goal drive in the third and capitalized on a blocked punt with a one-yard touchdown later in the quarter. Mahomes will almost certainly jump Bray in the near future, but Smith is locked into the starting job. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:42 pm

  • Tannehill will have surgery, headed to IR
    The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Ryan Tannehill (ACL) will undergo knee surgery and be placed on injured reserve.

    Advice: Tannehill avoided surgery after partially tearing his ACL late last season, but it is not surprising he is opting to get the knee repaired this time after re-tearing the same ACL last week. Going under the knife this early means he should be a full-go for camp next season. With Tannehill done for the year, Miami will turn to Jay Cutler as their starter. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:09 pm

  • JuJu Smith-Schuster leaves with concussion
    JuJu Smith-Schuster exited Friday's preseason opener with a concussion.

    Advice: Smith-Schuster came out late in the first quarter. The second-round rookie looked spry in the early going, nabbing a screen pass for a four-yard pick-up while later gaining nine yards on an end-around. He is done for the day. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:41 pm

  • Report: Rams aren't shopping Tavon Austin
    According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk on NBC Sports, the Rams aren't shopping Tavon Austin.

    Advice: There was speculation Austin could be dealt after the Rams acquired Sammy Watkins from Buffalo on Friday, but multiple outlets have confirmed that isn't the case. Obviously Watkins' presence will mean fewer targets for Austin, whose fantasy appeal was flimsy to begin with. A glorified gadget player (despite ludicrous comparisons to DeSean Jackson), the former eighth overall pick ranked 123rd out of 154 qualified receivers in yards per reception last season.

  • Mitch Trubisky has strong preseason opener
    Mitchell Trubisky completed 18-of-25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' preseason opener.

    Advice: Trubisky looked outstanding in his first NFL action. He consistently went through his reads quickly, navigated the pocket and passed with accuracy. After spoon-feeding him short throws to get his confidence up the Bears let him play more. He proceeded to make difficult throws on the run with precision. Despite it being a preseason game against the Broncos' second- and third-stringers, this was incredibly encouraging from this year's No. 2 overall pick. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:14 pm

  • Carson Wentz leads TD drive on only series
    Carson Wentz completed 4-of-4 passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' preseason opener.

    Advice: He had a perfect 158.3 passer rating. Wentz faced plenty of pressure, but he was able to twice escape for big plays. The first was a fourth-down conversion to Jordan Matthews, who was the recipient on three of Wentz's competitions, and the second was a 38-yard touchdown to rookie Mack Hollins. Hollins did most of the work after the catch, but Wentz did a great job to even get him the ball. It was a positive first outing for a player the Eagles hope takes a step forward as a sophomore.

  • Tyrod Taylor mostly sharp in exhibition
    Tyrod Taylor completed 5-of-8 passes for 46 yards in the Bills' preseason opener.

    Advice: Taylor briefly appeared to be sidelined by a leg injury following a long sack, but he reentered the game, and wound up playing three full drives. Taylor connected with Sammy Watkins on 4-of-5 targets for 39 yards. Always a good bet to finish as a top-12 fantasy quarterback because of his rushing skills, Taylor continues to be undervalued in early-August drafts. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:56 pm

  • Deshaun Watson productive in 2017 debut
    Deshaun Watson completed 15-of-25 passes for 179 yards and rushed three times for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' preseason opener.

    Advice: Watson’s mobility adds a dimension statuesque Tom Savage simply doesn’t bring to the table, and the rookie made his best plays Wednesday night with his legs. His highlight was a fleet-footed 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. As a passer, Watson mostly worked between the numbers on high-percentage throws. He did show a tendency to hold onto the ball too long, a flax Watson will have to fix to succeed in the NFL. While not an overly gifted arm talent, Watson does check boxes for playmaking ability and poise. It’s only a matter of time before the Texans determine Savage isn’t their best option.

  • Thomas Rawls getting work ahead of Lacy
    The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports Thomas Rawls "appears to be the clear No. 1 back" right now.

    Advice: Rawls split first-team reps with Eddie Lacy in a team scrimmage earlier this week. Lacy has reportedly been working "exclusively with the backups" since. We wouldn't read much into this, as Lacy is getting acclimated to a new offense and coming off ankle surgery. Lacy remains the favorite to start Week 1. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:19 pm

    Advice: Notably, Rawls was first through the rotation, although Lacy is still working his way back from ankle surgery. Kapadia notes Lacy was signed to be the "feature back," but Rawls will "clearly ... get the chance to compete" if he is able to stay healthy. Rawls' ADP is climbing, but he is still a good dart throw in the double-digit rounds. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:04 am

    Advice: Cutler had the surgery all the way back in December. The Dolphins never showed any concern about Cutler's shoulder, and by all accounts he passed his physical with flying colors. Cutler will be under center Week 1 versus Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com Aug 7, 1:59 pm

    Advice: Coach Todd Bowles revealed Enunwa won't be cleared for another 6-9 months. Enunwa broke out for over 800 receiving yards in 2016, and 2017 was set to be his contract year. It's a huge missed opportunity for the run-after-catch maven. Rotoworld.com Aug 7, 1:39 pm

  • Tavon Austin sidelined by bulky hamstring
    Tavon Austin has missed the past five days of training camp with a hamstring injury.

    Advice: Austin missed the entire offseason program as he recovered from wrist surgery. "It’s a little bit of a setback," coach Sean McVay admitted. It's practice time Austin can't afford to miss as the Rams attempt a likely ill-fated transition to making him more of an outside threat. It's hard to see Austin's path to standard league relevance, and even PPR is probably a stretch. Rotoworld.com Aug 7, 12:25 pm

  • Jets No. 1 WR Enunwa (neck) done for season
    Jets placed WR Quincy Enunwa on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

    Advice: Unbelievable. Enunwa, the Jets' clear-cut No. 1 receiver, was injured in a team scrimmage on Saturday. It leaves second-year UDFA Robby Anderson as Gang Green's No. 1. It's a positively cataclysmic situation for a team that should be amongst the most unwatchable in league history this season. As for Enunwa, it's devastating news that wipes out his age-25 campaign. Neck injuries are arguably the trickiest in all of football. His status beyond 2017 should be considered uncertain. Rotoworld.com Aug 7, 11:55 am

    Advice: It's an upgrade on last training camp, when Doctson was week to week with an Achilles' injury. The Redskins are spinning this as good news, but the bottom line is another lower-body injury is the last thing Doctson needed.

  • Jay Cutler says he's been healthy since March
    New Dolphins QB Jay Cutler says he's been fully recovered from his shoulder surgery since March.

    Advice: Cutler underwent season-ending surgery last December. The Dolphins wouldn't have given Cutler $10 million guaranteed if they were worried about his health. Speaking at his introductory presser, Cutler also claimed he wasn't promised the starting job, but coach Adam Gase — as well as his salary — have already said as much. Cutler will be under center Week 1, but has missed time with injury every year since 2010. Matt Moore will likely have to make starts for the Dolphins. Rotoworld.com Aug 7, 11:12 am

  • Josh Doctson suffers hamstring injury Sunday
    Josh Doctson exited Sunday's practice early with a hamstring injury.

    Advice: Doctson suffered the injury during a 7-on-7 drill and spent the rest of practice in the trainers' tent. He was walking with a limp as he left for the locker room. The good news is this injury is not another Achilles' issue, but it is another setback after he managed just two games as a rookie. Doctson had been having a great camp, so hopefully this issue turns out to be minor. He is reportedly day to day. Rotoworld.com Aug 7, 5:45 am
