Player Notes

  • Hunter Henry catches two passes Saturday
    Hunter Henry caught 2-of-2 targets for 13 yards in the Chargers' third preseason game.

    Advice: The Chargers have a ton of confidence in Henry. He's been a full-time player the entire preseason, signaling that he's healthy and ready for a big 2019 season with Antonio Gates off the roster. Henry has a career 9.2 YPT average and has also been an effective red zone weapon when healthy. The stars are aligning for a top-five tight end finish. Henry just needs to stay on the field.

  • Mike Williams catches one pass on Saturday
    Mike Williams caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Chargers' third preseason game.

    Advice: Williams has a few things working in his favor entering the 2019 season, mainly no Tyrell Williams and potentially no Melvin Gordon. The third-year receiver will have no problem setting a new career-high for targets and has high-end WR2 potential after averaging 10.1 yards on his 66 targets last year. Williams should also be more consistent week to week as he grows into being more than just a field stretcher and red zone weapon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:22 pm

  • LAC RB Justin Jackson has forgettable game
    Justin Jackson rushed for 13 yards on five carries and caught his only target for four yards in the Chargers' third preseason game.

    Advice: It was a very forgettable game for Jackson and the Chargers' rushing attack. Austin Ekeler started as expected, but Jackson did see a chunk of the first-team snaps. It's going to be a split backfield if Melvin Gordon's holdout extends into the regular season, with Ekeler handling more of the work while Jackson rotates in. Jackson isn't an ideal fantasy start Week 1, but game script will be on his side with the Andrew Luck-less Colts coming to Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm

  • Ekeler starts but does little on the ground
    Austin Ekeler rushed for 11 yards on four carries and caught 2-of-3 carries for 22 yards in the Chargers' third preseason game.

    Advice: ESPN's Eric Williams expects the Chargers to use a 50/50 split between Ekeler and Justin Jackson during Melvin Gordon's holdout, but Ekeler will see slightly more than that based on preseason usage. Ekeler has started throughout Gordon's holdout and is the better pass-catching option, though Jackson is a candidate to steal goal-line carries. If Gordon misses time, Ekeler will be an RB2 in good matchups and could even have flex appeal when Gordon comes back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm

  • Prosise plays well in third preseason game
    C.J. Prosise rushed for 32 yards and one touchdown on five carries and picked up 15 yards on his only target in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

    Advice: Prosise was used like he'll have a role in the regular season, but it should be a very limited one. The change-of-pace back will be a low-volume vulture to Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, but he could catch two dozen or so passes if things break his way given the limited receiving options on the roster. Prosise will likely need Carson or Penny to miss time to warrant a bench spot in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm

  • Seahawks WR Jaron Brown catches only target
    Jaron Brown caught his only target for 18 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

    Advice: Brown is "likely" to begin the year as the Seahawks' No. 2 receiver with DK Metcalf and David Moore sidelined, and he gets a decent matchup with the Bengals at home. Brown hasn't shown starting-caliber talent through six NFL seasons, but he did quietly put up five touchdowns with the 'Hawks last year and he'll be more involved in 2019 without Doug Baldwin. Brown has some late-round sleeper appeal, especially if Metcalf's knee injury lingers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm

  • Mecole Hardman posts 40 yards vs. 49ers
    Mecole Hardman caught 3-of-4 targets for 40 yards in the Chiefs' third preseason game.

    Advice: Hardman didn't see any targets from Patrick Mahomes, but he did check into the game early in the second quarter. He immediately committed an offensive pass interference penalty. That was the lowlight, but the highlight was Hardman's easy separation. He was playing as fast as his 4.33 40-yard dash. He has six receptions for 88 yards and two scores through three preseason games. He should have an early-season role on offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:30 pm

  • Marquise Goodwin posts nine-yard reception
    Marquise Goodwin caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs.

    Advice: At one point viewed as a potential cut, Goodwin instead exits the preseason locked in as a starter. He was in bubble wrap as Dante Pettis and Deebo Samuel played deep into the second half on Saturday. A complete fantasy flop last season, Goodwin probably won't re-emerge as a weekly option, but his deep routes will serve a valuable real life function in coach Kyle Shanahan's offense.

  • Penny converts goal-line carry for TD
    Rashaad Penny rushed for 22 yards and one touchdown on eight carries and caught 3-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

    Advice: It was easily Penny's best game of the preseason given he had 13 yards on 12 carries entering Saturday. Penny converted a goal-line carry for a touchdown and was involved as a pass-catcher, but he is a distant 1B to Chris Carson's 1A. The Seahawks' run-first offense can easily support two fantasy backs, however. Penny just has to show he deserves snaps, something he didn't really do this offseason. Consider Penny a flex option in a home matchup with the Bengals to begin the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 pm

  • Deebo Samuel posts 27 yards vs. Chiefs
    Deebo Samuel caught 2-of-3 targets for 27 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

    Advice: Samuel was running with the first-team offense, catching a 21-yard pass from Jimmy Garoppolo. Provided his preseason is through, he finishes it with four catches for 88 yards, and two rushes for 59 yards. Samuel impressed coach Kyle Shanahan this summer while sophomore Dante Pettis left something to be desired. Pettis and Marquise Goodwin appear locked in as starters for now, but Samuel could have something to say about that early in the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:20 pm

  • Chris Carson plays most first-team snaps
    Chris Carson rushed for 23 yards on three carries in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

    Advice: As he has all preseason long, Carson saw more first-team snaps and outperformed Rashaad Penny on Saturday night. At this point, Carson needs to be confidently viewed as the clear-cut 1A in this backfield and a rock-solid RB2 in fantasy. The Seahawks run-heavy offense will keep Carson's floor high and his ceiling has been elevated by the Seahawks' plan to get their running backs more involved as receivers.

  • Dante Pettis has three-catch night vs. Chiefs
    Dante Pettis caught 3-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

    Advice: One of Pettis' missed connections was a near interception Jimmy Garoppolo heaved into triple coverage. Pettis also muffed a punt but managed to recover it. Surprisingly, Pettis played into the fourth quarter, but so did Deebo Samuel. Coach Kyle Shanahan didn't seem to get the summer he was looking for from Pettis, but he remained a staple of the first-team offense all preseason. He's locked in as a starter alongside Marquise Goodwin. Despite the shaky August, Pettis still offers legitimate upside as a WR4. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm

  • Matt Breida totals 75 yards on nine touches
    Matt Breida rushed seven times for 44 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game, adding two receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown.

    Advice: While Breida was generating 75 yards on nine touches, Tevin Coleman could manage only 21 on 10. The two were working in an even committee. For his 20-yard touchdown grab, Breida lined up in the slot before making a diving catch in the end zone. At the very least, Breida will open the season as an all-purpose weapon out of coach Kyle Shanahan's backfield. He could end up leading it for the second-consecutive year. Being drafted as a mid-range RB4, Breida is looking like a steal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm

  • Tevin Coleman held to 21 yards
    Tevin Coleman rushed nine times for 19 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game, adding a two-yard reception.

    Advice: Rotating with Matt Breida, Coleman got soundly out-played. Breida totaled 75 yards on nine touches, including a 20-yard touchdown reception. Coleman closes the book on the preseason with 12 rushes for 40 yards. He could find himself in a near-even committee with Breida to begin the season, making him a low-floor RB3 in fantasy leagues.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo comes alive vs. Chiefs
    Jimmy Garoppolo completed 14-of-20 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' third preseason game.

    Advice: After struggling both in practice and his previous preseason start, Garoppolo finally came alive against a defense that's been known to make that happen for opposing quarterbacks. Although he appeared a bit skittish in the pocket at times, Garoppolo seemed to have his timing and mechanics back. His touchdown was a beautifully-lofted 20-yarder to Matt Breida in the end zone. Being drafted as a bottom-barrel QB2, Garoppolo figures to be an excellent early-season streaming option in Kyle Shanahan's reliably-explosive offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:57 pm

  • Carlos Hyde touches ball once vs. 49ers
    Carlos Hyde rushed once for one yard in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

    Advice: Hyde was the fourth Chiefs running back to touch the ball after Damien Williams, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson. His lone carry came late in the third quarter with No. 3 QB Kyle Shurmur at the controls. Coach Andy Reid has all but announced that Hyde will be released at final cuts. He is off the board in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:55 pm

  • Lockett picks up 50 yards on three targets
    Tyler Lockett caught 2-of-3 targets for 50 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

    Advice: Lockett, as he often does, got loose downfield, and Russell Wilson spotted him for a big pickup. With Doug Baldwin in retirement, Lockett will have to be more than a big-play receiver in 2019, however, but we're optimistic that Lockett can handle the extra targets. Just how many that will be is to be determined, but he will easily set a career-high if he stays healthy. With DK Metcalf and David Moore sidelined, Lockett will be a top-20 WR at home against the Bengals to begin the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:52 pm

  • Darrel Williams rushes for 19 yards vs. 49ers
    Darrel Williams rushed five times for 19 yards in the Chiefs' third preseason game, adding a three-yard reception.

    Advice: Williams was actually the second Chiefs back to touch the ball after Damien Williams, though rookie Darwin Thompson also spent time with the first-team offense. Provided he sits out Thursday's finale, Williams finishes the preseason with 11 carries for 44 yards (4.0 YPC) and two catches. Coach Andy Reid has said he plans to feature a committee, and it would appear he wants Williams to be a part of it. Veteran Carlos Hyde seems poised to get cut. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:50 pm

  • Darwin Thompson touches ball five times
    Darwin Thompson rushed three times for eight yards in the Chiefs' third preseason game, adding two receptions for nine additional yards.

    Advice: Thompson was actually the third Chiefs running back to touch the ball after Damien Williams and Darrel Williams, but he did see time with the first-team offense. Carlos Hyde did not. With Damien a career-long committee member, there is a window for Thompson to earn work in what coach Andy Reid has said will be a multi-player backfield. Thompson is an excellent flier in the mid-to-later rounds of fantasy drafts. Although he doesn't have jaw-dropping speed, Thompson is blessed with exceptional quicks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm

  • Russell Wilson completes 6-of-9 passes
    Russell Wilson completed 6-of-9 passes for 73 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

    Advice: Wilson's receiving weapons are depleted, especially if DK Metcalf misses multiple games, but he was able to find Tyler Lockett for 50 yards on three targets tonight. For Wilson to keep his every-week QB1 status, he'll need Lockett to emerge as a legitimate No. 1 receiver because this offense will remain as run-heavy as possible in 2019. Wilson should be treated as a top-10 fantasy QB in Week 1 with a great matchup against the Bengals at home. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 pm
