Player Notes

  • Ronald Jones struggling in pass protection?
    According to ESPN's Jenna Laine, Ronald Jones has "had some busts" in blitz pickups this summer and is still working to improve his route running.

    Advice: Jones was the talk of OTAs with many predicting he'd make a run at the starting job, though the hype has died down considerably this summer. The second-round sophomore is still working back from a hyperextended knee he suffered in last week's preseason tilt against Miami, a game where he totaled just seven yards on two carries. RBs coach Todd McNair worked extensively with Jones to improve his receiving technique this offseason after noticing he was using "odd angles with his hands." Despite making noticeable strides this summer, Jones remains very much a work in progress. Laine expects Jones and teammate Peyton Barber to both play "significant roles on Sundays," though the incumbent Barber is a better bet for fantasy relevance. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago

  • Damien Harris said to be 'fine' after injury
    The Athletic's Nick Underhill reports Damien Harris is "fine" after leaving Thursday's third preseason game early with an injury.

    Advice: Harris' role come Week 1 remains unclear. Sony Michel has had a terrific summer by most accounts, and James White has his normal pass-game role to fill. That leaves Harris as a mere in-case-of-emergency back who will likely get a couple touches here and there when everyone is healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:42 am

  • Zeke Elliott back to Cabo to train with Faulk
    Ezekiel Elliott is back in Cabo continuing his holdout, and Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk is headed to Mexico to train with him.

    Advice: A recent photo of Elliott on a plane back to Dallas went viral, but he merely had a weekend off and returned stateside for it. Elliott still has his heels dug in, and the Cowboys don't appear ready to budge, especially after Tony Pollard's impressive second preseason game as the starter. Elliott grew up in St. Louis during Faulk's heyday with the Rams. Picking Elliott in fantasy drafts gets riskier by the day. Meanwhile, Pollard is a mid-to-late round target to come away with every time.

  • Darwin Thompson gets goal-line reps with 1s
    The Kansas City Star's Brooke Pryor reports rookie Darwin Thompson has leaped Carlos Hyde on the depth chart and has been getting goal-line work with the first-team offense.

    Advice: Pryor is the latest Chiefs beat writer to leave Hyde off her 53-man roster projection, keeping Thompson along with Damien and Darrel Williams. Thompson has been so good this preseason, and Hyde has been as bad as Thompson has been good. All Hyde has going for him is his veteran presence; he doesn't play special teams, either. Thompson is picking up big-time steam as a late-round fantasy pick. It's going to be tough to keep him off the field.

  • Mark Walton totals 23 yards vs. Jaguars
    Mark Walton rushed six times for three yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game, adding four receptions for 20 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: Walton has a woeful 23 yards on 17 carries (1.35 YPC) thus far this preseason. He could end up seeing work in next week's finale. The No. 2 back behind Kalen Ballage while Kenyan Drake (foot) rehabs, Walton could open the season with a pass-catching role. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
