  • Eagles' Kenneth Gainwell: In mix for RB touches

    As the coming season approaches, Zach Berman of the The Athletic suggests that the Eagles are leaning toward a committee approach in a backfield that currently includes Gainwell, D'Andre Swift, Rashaad Penny, Boston Scott and Trey Sermon.With Miles Sanders, who led the Eagles with 259 carries in 2022, now with the Panthers, it looks like the team is prepared to roll with a combination of backs on a weekly basis. The Eagles' posted depth chart lists the team's RBs together as a group, and unless a starter is identified ahead of Week 1, a game-by-game approach leaning on the hot hand could be in play out of the gate. While Swift profiles a big-play threat who figures to get his share of touches in the passing game and Penny should also contribute on early-downs, Gainwell has been been getting steady work this summer and that could continue early on this season. If so, the 2021 fifth-rounder has a chance to earn enough work to emerge as a fantasy sleeper, relative to his average draft position.

  • Ravens' Tylan Wallace: Looking good for roster spot

    Wallace has made a strong case to be Baltimore's No. 6 receiver, scoring two TDs in two preseason games, Ryan Mink of the official team site reports.Even with an excellent August, the 2021 fourth-round pick is unlikely to climb high on a depth chart that has Odell Beckham, Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers, Nelson Agholor and Devin Duvernay. Wallace does make a lot of sense for the final WR spot, assuming the Ravens keep six, as he's played 399 snaps on special teams (compared to 161 on offense) through 26 career games.

  • Buccaneers' Kyle Trask: Not victorious in QB competition

    Coach Todd Bowles announced Tuesday that Baker Mayfield, not Trask, will begin 2023 as the Buccaneers' starting quarterback, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Trask put together a solid performance in Saturday's preseason win over the Jets, completing 20 of 28 passes for 218 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions, but Mayfield has nonetheless evidently shown enough throughout training camp to be named the starter. The 2021 second-round pick instead stands to start the year as Mayfield's backup, and Tampa Bay could still add another reserve QB with John Wolford (neck) battling injury. In the event that Mayfield struggles, and Trask can continue to log positive showings in practice throughout the season, it's possible he could still push for a chance to line up under center sometime during the 2023 campaign.

  • Ravens' Melvin Gordon: Runs behind Hill again

    Gordon took eight carries for 34 yards and caught one pass for one yard in Monday's preseason loss to Washington.J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards were held out, while Justice Hill got the start and racked up 38 total yards on the opening drive before the Ravens pulled him from the game. Gordon then entered and struggled initially, including being stuffed on a 3rd-and-1, though he had more luck later on whilst playing into the third quarter. Undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell was the third back into the game and took his first carry for 31 yards, but shortly thereafter he left with a shoulder injury (one that isn't believed to be serious, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network). Gordon and Mitchell are competing for the No. 4 RB spot, which might only equate to a job on the practice squad.

  • Buccaneers' Baker Mayfield: Officially named starter

    Coach Todd Bowles officially named Mayfield the Buccaneers' starting quarterback for Week 1 on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Mayfield winning Tampa Bay's quarterback competition was foreshadowed when he sat out the team's preseason win over the Jets on Saturday despite the absence of John Wolford (neck). The 2018 No. 1 overall pick will get a chance to reignite his career as a starter with wideouts Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as his clear top targets on offense, beginning with Sept. 10's regular-season opener against the Vikings. Now that the Buccaneers' quarterback battle is at an end, it remains to be seen whether the team will opt for Mayfield and the starters to get some reps in during Saturday's preseason finale against the Ravens, or have them get some rest.

  • Ravens' Charlie Kolar: Leads team in receiving yards

    Kolar caught two of three targets for 61 yards in Monday's preseason matchup with Washington.The 2022 fourth-round pick worked as Baltimore's top tight end with both Mark Andrews (rest) and Isaiah Likely (undisclosed) held out. Kolar had a nice outing, but so did undrafted rookie Travis Vokolek, who now has a 5-58-2 receiving line through two preseason games. While Kolar is unlikely to lose his roster spot, the Ravens now seem more likely to keep four tight ends. Both should get plenty of snaps in the preseason finale Saturday against Tampa Bay, considering the Ravens have only the four aforementioned TEs on their roster.

  • Ravens' Travis Vokolek: Scores twice

    Vokolek caught three of four targets for 28 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's preseason loss to the Commanders.The undrafted rookie out of Nebraska had two catches for 30 yards the week prior and further strengthened his case for a roster spot Monday night. The Ravens only have four tight ends on the roster, and two of the guys ahead of him are locks (Mark Andrews, Isaiah Likely) while the other appears a near-lock (Charlie Kolar). There's no hope for short-term fantasy value on a team with Andrews and Likely, but Vokolek does offer some long-term potential given his size (6-6, 270) and developing receiving skills.

    Agholor didn't play in Monday's preseason game against Washington, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.Fellow veteran receiver Devin Duvernay started and played six snaps, while Agholor was among the many players rested. It thus seems Agholor is on track for the No. 4 receiver spot behind Odell Beckham, Rashod Bateman and Zay Flowers, which could mean a decent bit of playing time Week 1 against Houston if Bateman has limitations in his fist game back from a Lisfranc injury.

    Bates finished with one target and no receptions in Monday's preseason win over Baltimore.With Logan Thomas (calf) sidelined, Cole Turner worked as the primary tight end on the first-team offense, while Bates played a few snaps and mostly blocked. There's not much hope for significant receiving production, but Bates at least figures to have a blocking role for the third straight year since Washington made him a fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

  • Commanders' Dyami Brown: Scores TD, avoids concussion

    Brown caught two of six targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 29-28 win over Baltimore.Brown was the No. 4 WR for the first-team offense and scored a touchdown at the end of the first half after Terry McLaurin left with a toe injury. Brown also took a few snaps prior to McLaurin's exit, and later played with the second-stringers after halftime, including a 16-yard catch from Jacoby Brissett. To cap off the eventful night, Brown left the game to be checked for a concussion, and while he was quickly cleared it seems he sat out the rest of the game anyway. The 2021 third-round pick had a disappointing first two seasons in the NFL, but reports out of camp have been far more positive this year and it's possible McLaurin's toe injury opens up a top-three spot at WR for Week 1 against Arizona.

  • Commanders' Terry McLaurin: Believed to have turf toe

    McLaurin is believed to have suffered a turf toe injury on his right foot during Monday's preseason game against the Ravens and will undergo an MRI, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.McLaurin will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to reveal the full extent of his injury. Turf toe diagnoses can range from Grade 1, for which he should miss little time, to Grade 3, which involves a ligament tear and carries a multi-week recovery timetable. The hope will of course be that Washington's top wideout has avoided a serious issue, and that he can get healthy in time for the team's regular-season opener against Arizona on Sept. 10. If McLaurin were to miss any time, however, second-year pro Jahan Dotson would likely step into a premier role as Sam Howell's clear No. 1 target.

    Berrios (head) secured three of four targets for 33 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's exhibition win over the Texans.Berrios returned to action after having suffered a head injury on a punt return Aug. 13, and in impressive fashion. He began the game with one catch from starter Tua Tagovailoa, with his final two grabs, including an 18-yard touchdown to end the second quarter, coming from Skylar Thompson. He looks slated to operate as the Dolphins' top return man this season, while also handling a depth role at wideout.

    Chosen (undisclosed) failed to secure his only target during Saturday's preseason win over Houston.Chosen missed Miami's preseason opener with an undisclosed injury, but he's now back to full health. The veteran wideout's lone target came from backup quarterback Skylar Thomson in the second quarter, in a game where 10 players successfully recorded a catch for Miami. The Dolphins' competition at No. 3 wideout is still open, but both Braxton Berrios and Cedrick Wilson have been more productive than Chosen so far this preseason.

    Thompkins secured two of three targets for 13 yards, returned one kickoff for 16 yards and ran back two punts for four yards in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night.Thompkins had a solid night overall while logging 20 snaps from scrimmage. The Utah State product is in a battle with several other young wideouts for a spot on the latter portion of the Buccaneers' depth chart, and he was outperformed by one of them, Rakim Jarrett, in Saturday's contest. Nevertheless, Thompkins' ability to also contribute as a returner ups his odds, and he should have another solid opportunity to make his case in Saturday night's home preseason finale versus the Ravens.

He also recovered a fumble.Otton had logged 14 snaps against the Steelers in the preseason opener but hadn't seen a target.

    Geiger brought in one of two targets for eight yards in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night.Geiger saw a notable downturn in production after standing out with a 4-50 line in the preseason opener. The second-year pro's underwhelming line was especially disappointing in light of the fact he logged a robust 28 snaps overall. Moreover, given that Rakim Jarrett, a primary competitor for a reserve receiver role, shined with three catches for 84 yards Saturday, Geiger will likely need to stand out significantly in Saturday night's preseason finale against the Ravens to have a chance to stick on the final roster.

  • Buccaneers' Rakim Jarrett: Leads pass catchers in win

    Jarrett secured all three targets for 84 yards in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night. He also rushed once for minus-3 yards.Jarrett had been turning heads frequently in training camp, and his 33 snaps were second only to David Moore among Buccaneers receivers. The Maryland product also recorded a game-long 36-yard grab, making quite the case in his ongoing bid for a reserve receiver role. Jarrett's chances of snagging a spot have likely been at least slightly boosted by Russell Gage's season-ending knee injury, and he should have another extended opportunity to convince the coaching staff in Saturday night's home preseason finale against the Ravens.

    Moore secured two of four targets for 18 yards and fumbled once but recovered in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday night. He also returned one punt for no gain.Moore had a relatively quiet night overall while the player who might well be his primary competition for the No. 3 receiver job, Trey Palmer, flashed again with a 33-yard touchdown grab. However, the veteran, who led the team in targets, was reasonably productive overall, and given his experience edge over Palmer, Moore could potentially emerge as the victor in the job battle if he puts together an impressive enough effort in Saturday night's home preseason finale against the Ravens.

  • Buccaneers' Sean Tucker: Strong impression on 10 touches

    Tucker rushed seven times for 37 yards and brought in all three targets for 18 yards in the Buccaneers' 13-6 preseason win over the Jets on Saturday.Tucker was notably the second back to log a touch after Ke'Shawn Vaughn with Rachaad White and Chase Edmonds getting the night off. The undrafted rookie ultimately logged 19 snaps on offense and was busy with them, setting the pace for Tampa Bay in rushing yards while drawing even for the team lead in receptions. Tucker's three primary competitors for a roster spot -- Vaughn, Ronnie Brown and Patrick Laird -- combined for 31 yards on 20 carries and two catches for 14 yards, so the Syracuse alum certainly appears to have gained some serious ground Saturday.

It sounds like he avoided a serious injury. Mitchell is in a contested battle for the Ravens' RB4 job behind J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill.

Brown was in on 13 plays overall -- six fewer than Tucker -- and he finished third behind him and Patrick Laird in rushing yards.

    Gibson had four carries for 15 yards and three catches for 10 yards and a touchdown in Monday's preseason matchup with the Ravens.Brian Robinson was the starter for a second straight week and again worked in a near-50/50 split with Gibson. The Commanders played their starters for the first half and now have kept them on the field for seven drives this preseason, with Robinson getting 13 opportunities (eight carries, five targets) and Gibson seeing 12 (six carries, six targets). There hasn't been a clear split like last year in terms of Robinson taking early downs while Gibson handles passing situations, but it is possible OC Eric Bieniemy switches that up some once the regular season begins Sept. 10 against Arizona.

  • Cardinals' Emari Demercado: Making move up depth chart?

    Demercado turned eight carries into 12 yards and reeled in all three of his targets for 22 yards during Saturday's 38-10 preseason defeat to the Chiefs.In somewhat of a surprise twist, Demercado was the third Cardinals running back to see action in preseason Week 2 behind James Conner and Keaontay Ingram and ahead of Corey Clement (Ty'Son Williams didn't play). This follows an exhibition debut in which Demercado, an undrafted rookie, had seven touches for 25 yards from scrimmage and punched in the game-winning two-point conversion on Aug. 11 against the Broncos. Still, Arizona continues to list Demercado fourth on the RB depth chart behind Conner, Ingram and Clement, according to Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic. As a result, Demercado's performance in the team's final preseason contest Saturday in Minnesota may go a long way in determining his fate during roster cut downs.

    Lalos recorded five tackles, including three sacks, and one pass defended during Sunday's 22-17 preseason win against the Chargers.Lalos filled up the box score during his limited playing time, as he finished with 27 defensive snaps -- all of which were played during the second half. The 26-year-old dominated on the Chargers' final offensive series of the game, recording a pass deflection before collecting back-to-back sacks on quarterback Easton Stick. Lalos spent time on the Saints' practice squad last season before playing 10 games with the Seattle Sea Dragons of the XFL. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound defensive end is still a massive longshot to make a final 53-man roster, but his notable growth this preseason may help him secure a spot on the practice squad heading into the regular season.

The rookie second-round pick is expected to compete for a primary rotational role behind veteran defensive ends Cameron Jordan and Carl Granderson this coming season. However, Foskey may still need to prove himself over 2021 first-rounder Payton Turner and veteran Tanoh Kpassagnon, the latter of whom signed a two-year, $6 million extension this offseason.

    Edward did not catch any of his four targets during Sunday's 22-17 win versus the Chargers.Edwards played the second-most offensive snaps of any Saints wideout other than undrafted rookie Jontre Kirklin. However, the 2020 third-round pick wasn't able to deliver on any of his four targets -- all of which came during the second half when New Orleans' third-team offense was on the field. He also committed two offensive pass interference penalties on one offensive series, thus nullifying two would-be touchdown passes from rookie quarterback Jake Haener. With just one preseason contest remaining, Edwards' opportunities to secure a spot on the Saints' final 53-man roster are running out rather quickly.

  • Commanders' Sam Howell: Throws for 188 and two TDs

    Howell completed 19 of 25 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's preseason game against Baltimore, adding three carries for 17 yards.Three days after being named the Week 1 starter, Howell led the Washington first unit to 17 points on four drives while playing the entire first half against Baltimore's second/third-string defenders. He played well even considering the soft competition, though he also showed some of the bad in his scouting report when took a 13-yard sack on a 2nd-and-2 after needlessly bailing from a relatively clean pocket. Howell bounced back with a 16-yard dart to TE Cole Turner on the next snap, leading Washington to an opening-drive field goal before adding second-quarter TD passes to RB Antonio Gibson and WR Dyami Brown. The biggest negative was WR Terry McLaurin exiting in the second quarter with a toe injury, though it may not end up being a big deal given that X-rays came back negative, per Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post. The prolonged playing time Monday likely means Howell and other starters will be rested for their preseason finale Saturday against the Bengals, leaving a 20-day gap before a favorable Week 1 home matchup with the rebuilding Cardinals.

    Dotson caught five of seven targets for 76 yards in Monday's preseason game against Baltimore.Washington's first-team offense played the entire first half, putting up 17 points on four drives with QB Sam Howell throwing for 188 yards and two TDs. Dotson was the only player to see more than four targets in the half, and he accounted for 40 percent of Howell's yardage while doing his damage on short and intermediate throws. The 2022 first-round pick was more of a big-play threat than a volume guy as a rookie, though that changed somewhat over the final month of the season, portending a possible Year 2 breakout. The extended playing time Monday likely means Dotson will be held out of the final preseason game in preparation for a Week 1 home matchup with Arizona.

Additionally, the 25-year-old wideout handled return duties for the Saints, totaling two kickoff returns for 41 yards while also fielding four punts for 13 yards and a fair catch. Bowden's ability to create yards after catch combined with his value as a potential special-team returner could go a long way toward carving out a role with New Orleans heading into the regular season.

    Samuel caught his lone target for 11 yards in Monday's preseason matchup with Baltimore.It wasn't the most encouraging performance given that Washington's starters played the entire first half and Sam Howell attempted 25 passes. Of course, it's a small sample against backup defenders in a preseason game, and by most measures Samuel looks like one of the better No. 3 receivers in the league. Fellow wideouts Jahan Dotson and Terry McLaurin combined for eight catches and 115 yards on 10 targets, though McLaurin did exit early with a toe injury that doesn't initially appear too serious. It's also worth noting that Dyami Brown got a decent amount of run with the first-team offense, including a 16-yard TD, though that doesn't necessarily mean he'll chip into Samuel's playing time come Week 1 against Arizona.

Despite the potential demotion, Clement remains behind Conner and Ingram and ahead of Demercado and Williams on the team's third unofficial depth chart of the preseason, per Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic. Clement's performance in Saturday's exhibition at Minnesota ultimately may determine whether or not he survives cut downs with a spot on Arizona's roster.

It was essentially the same rotation as the previous week, including Robinson being the starter, only with Washington's first unit playing an entire half instead of the first 19 minutes of game time. The split won't necessarily be this even once game counts, but the smart money is on Robinson and Gibson both getting a bunch of touches in a Week 1 home game against Arizona.

    Tune was 12-for-24 passing for 133 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions and rushed six times for 35 yards during Saturday's 38-10 preseason defeat to the Chiefs.After Colt McCoy handled the Cardinals' first three drives of the contest, Tune took over the offense and logged almost two full quarters of work before yielding to David Blough. The current breakdown of Arizona's QB room is a result of Kyler Murray's ongoing recovery from last December's torn ACL and Jeff Driskel sitting out with a calf strain. Tune hasn't exactly been accurate (53.2 percent) or productive (5.7 yards per attempt) through two exhibitions, but the rookie fifth-rounder seems poised to be the team's No. 2 signal-caller behind McCoy until Murray is healthy enough to suit up.

He subsequently hit a 36-yarder and a 57-yarder on Saturday before missing a 43-yarder wide left in the closing minutes. The 32-year-old is coming off a fantastic season where he hit 34 of 37 field-goal tries (92 percent) and 41 of 42 extra-point attempts (98 percent), and he was rewarded with a new four-year contract in January.

Fortunately for the 2023 third-round pick, he started alongside fellow wide receiver Marquise Brown while Rondale Moore and Greg Dortch came off the bench. The order of each player's first snaps Saturday may not be replicated in the regular season or even when quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) is healthy enough to suit up, but Wilson appears as if he'll be a regular target for whoever is under center for Arizona as a rookie.

He did his damage while lined up across from fellow rookie first-round pick Emmanuel Forbes, who otherwise played well in the first half. Flowers is locked in as one of Baltimore's top three WRs to start the regular season, and he could even be the first or second option if Odell Beckham and/or Rashod Bateman struggles to regain his form after a prolonged absence. It's unclear if Flowers will play in the preseason finale against Tampa Bay on Saturday, but he should get a lot of snaps Week 1 when the Ravens host the Texans (Sept. 10).

The fifth-year pro has six touches for 86 yards through two preseason games, and there's some chance his relative advantages in speed and receiving skills allow him to pressure Edwards for the No. 2 spot in an offense that's expected to throw more often than in past seasons under the guidance of new OC Todd Monken. It's possible Hill is among the players rested Saturday when the Ravens host the Bucs in their final preseason game.

The campaign featured highs (four games of 50-plus yards) and lows (10 outings with less than 20 yards).

Despite the lack of headway on offense, he again worked ahead of fellow reserve quarterbacks Clayton Tune and David Blough with Kyler Murray (knee) still in recovery mode. If Murray isn't healthy by Week 1, McCoy figures to lead Arizona's offense until the former is ready to roll.

  • Cardinals' Keaontay Ingram: Looking good for RB2 role

    Ingram is the frontrunner for the No. 2 RB job after taking nine touches for 48 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to Kansas City, according to Tyler Drake of Arizona Sports.Ingram came back strong in the second week of the preseason after an abdomen injury kept him out for most of training camp and the first exhibition. It helps that the Cardinals don't have much else behind starter James Conner, otherwise relying on veteran special teamer Corey Clement, 2021 UDFA Ty'Son Williams and undrafted rookie Emari Demercado. Conner's injury history makes the RB2 role in Arizona all the more interesting, even after Ingram's rough rookie season with 31 touches for only 81 yards.

  • Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Expected to report before Week 1

    Jacobs is expected to report to the Raiders before their season opener in three weeks, multiple league sources told Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Raiders coach Josh McDaniels when asked Sunday did not have an update on the situation.Jacobs did not report to training camp, and there have been almost no reports on his status or any contract talks. Because he hasn't yet signed his franchise tag, the team hasn't been able to fine him for practice absences. That gives Jacobs, who led the league in rushing and yards from scrimmage last season, leverage to hold out until Week 1 before he starts facing significant financial penalties. Based on Bonsignore's report, Jacobs intends to end his holdout just before the regular season begins. In that scenario, it's not clear if he'll be in shape and ready to play right away, however. If Jacobs faces any limitations to begin the 2023 campaign, Zamir White would likely see increased work out of the backfield.

    Spiller carried the ball five times for 27 yards in Sunday's preseason loss to the Saints.Joshua Kelley also got five touches but managed only 13 yards with them -- a mark that Spiller topped in one play, an 18-yard dash up the middle during a two-minute drill at the end of the first half that set up the Chargers' first TD of the night. The two backs could continue jockeying for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Austin Ekeler right up until the Week 1 kickoff, but at the moment, the momentum in the battle seems to swinging toward Spiller.

  • Rams' Royce Freeman: Four touches in defeat

    Freeman rushed twice for six yards and caught both of his targets for three yards during Saturday's 34-17 preseason loss to the Raiders.Freeman saw the least playing time of the trio of running backs used by the Rams Saturday, and also made the least contributions. Ronnie Rivers (9-42-0) and Zach Evans (8-20-0 and a seven-yard reception) both saw ample touches during their time on the field, and Rivers looked particularly efficient for the second straight preseason game. With Cam Akers and Kyren Williams locks to make the roster and Rivers grinding his way into a spot of his own, it may come down to Freeman and the rookie Evans for a roster spot that is conditioned on the Rams choosing to keep four running backs on the team.

Johnston has yet to work with Justin Herbert in a game, and he'll be behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in the pecking order when the regular season begins, but the big-bodied TCU product has a chance to make an impact as a rookie in the Bolts' high-powered passing attack.

The minor knee sprain he picked up in his preseason debut last week didn't seem to be an issue. With Alvin Kamara (suspension) set to miss the first three games of the regular season, Miller is line to handle a significant workload in the backfield alongside Jamaal Williams, and his efficient showing in the passing game Sunday is a very encouraging sign for his usage in the NFL after he got little chance to display his receiving skills at TCU.

Allen made multiple contested catches, showcased his abilities as a blocker, and functioned as Stetson Bennett's safety valve through much of the contest.

The good news for Johnson is that he still led all Rams' wide receivers in yardage and tied with DeMarcus Robinson for targets, a sign the duo signed in free agency are being given ample opportunity to secure a spot on the final 53-man roster.

Quarterback Stetson Bennett had an erratic night while running the offense, and the only Rams' pass catcher that had any success on the night was tight end Davis Allen, which helps lessen the blame being squarely on Robinson for a poor performance. With four wideouts (Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell) now essentially locked onto the roster, the final three or four wide receivers on the final 53-man roster will likely come down to Robinson, Ben Skowronek, Tyler Johnson and Lance McCutcheon, with McCutcheon looking like the odd man out at the moment.

The Commanders' starting kicker job appeared to be up for grabs this preseason after the Commanders signed Badgley in May, though it looks like Slye did enough to retain this role instead. The 27-year-old converted 37 of his 42 field-goal attempts and went 33-for-38 on PATs over 23 regular-season contests with Washington, and he's entering the final season of a two-year contract.

  • Steelers' Mason Rudolph: Efficient in victory

    Rudolph completed five of seven pass attempts for 52 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions while rushing twice for 12 yards during Saturday's 27-15 preseason win over the Bills.Rudolph has been impressive over his first two preseason appearances this year, but Mitch Trubisky also turned in a solid performance Saturday after struggling in the opener. While Rudolph still appears to be the No. 3 option in the quarterback room, he'll likely make the 53-man roster if the team opts to begin the regular season with three signal callers.

The Steelers haven't had multiple fantasy-relevant tight ends in recent seasons, but Washington should have a chance to compete with Zach Gentry and Connor Heyward for a role behind starter Pat Freiermuth to begin the 2023 campaign.

  • Falcons' KhaDarel Hodge: Will sit out week of practice

    Falcons coach Arthur Smith said Sunday that Hodge (ankle) will not participate in practice this coming week, Terrin Waack of the Falcons' official site reports.Hodge sustained an ankle injury during Friday's 13-13 preseason tie against the Bengals, sidelining him for the remainder of this contest. The exact nature and severity of this issue are still unknown, but it's significant enough to keep him from practicing ahead of Atlanta's preseason finale Thursday versus Pittsburgh. This likely means Hodge will be sidelined for this contest against the Steelers as well. Smith also indicated that fellow veteran wideout Penny Hart (concussion) will be sidelined during this week's practices. Both Hodge and Hart are expected to vie for the Falcons' fourth and fifth wide receiver spots, so their absences could open up more opportunities for Josh Ali, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Keilahn Harris and others.

    Johnson logged another notable performance during Friday's joint practice with the Chargers, Luke Johnson of NOLA.com reports.Johnson has continued to improve heading into his fourth season with the Saints, per Luke Johnson. On Friday, the 6-foot-4 tight end beat veteran linebacker Eric Kendricks on a vertical seam route before hauling in a 40-yard, walk-in touchdown during Friday's 11-on-11 sessions. The converted wide receiver, who caught a team-high seven touchdowns last season, has consistently showcased the unique athleticism that makes him a mismatch for opposing linebackers. Johnson has also reportedly taken a jump as a blocker this offseason. This would likely allow him to stay on the field more than he did in 2022 when he played just over 61 percent of New Orleans' offensive snaps. The Saints don't have any proven receiving options outside of Chris Olave, as former star wideout Michael Thomas has played just 10 regular-season games since 2019. This lack of tried-and-true pass-catchers could make Johnson a top receiving option for new quarterback Derek Carr.

The 2021 third-overall pick got to flash his arm strength on a couple of big completions downfield while also leading the game-winning drive as time expired. It wasn't all roses for the 23-year-old though, as his interception came on an ill-advised pass into a crowd of defenders on a broken screen play. Neither Lance nor Darnold has pulled away in this backup competition heading into the third and final preseason game against the Chargers on Friday.

  • 49ers' Sam Darnold: Gets extended look Saturday

    Darnold completed 11 of 14 pass attempts for 109 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's preseason win over Denver.Darnold entered the game after starter Brock Purdy (elbow) returned from injury and ran San Francisco's opening drive. The 26-year-old entered in the first half ahead of Trey Lance as planned. However, Darnold remained in the game after halftime to presumably make up for the drive lost to Purdy. When that drive was shortened by an interception that was no fault of his own, Darnold trotted back out to end his day on a positive note with a touchdown pass. Lance also had a touchdown pass and a pick Saturday, keeping the competition for the backup job in San Francisco a dead heat heading into the final week of the preseason.

  • Broncos' Samaje Perine: Resumes backup role

    Perine rushed three times for 22 yards and no receptions in Saturday's preseason loss to San Francisco.Perine was the second running back to enter Saturday's contest following the healthy return of Javonte Williams (knee). The latter saw the bulk of action on Denver's opening drive, confirming Williams' status as lead back. The 27-year-old should still receive touches as a backup (similar to his time in Cincinnati), especially early in the season while the team eases Williams back into action. However, any hopes for Perine to begin the year as starter if Williams wasn't ready for Week 1 can be safely discarded.

    Wilson completed three of his six pass attempts for 24 yards and rushed for 25 yards on three carries in Saturday's preseason tilt against San Francisco.Head coach Sean Payton said that Wilson and the starters would see 20 to 24 snaps against the 49ers, but he wound up limiting his starting quarterback to the opening drive (10 plays). There is no injury to report here, as Payton may simply have changed his mind mid-game. Wilson didn't do much from the pocket, but he did break off a 17-yard scamper, something we have seen less of from the 34-year-old in the later stages of his career. Wilson saw his stock drop farther than any player following his putrid 2022 campaign, so expectations should be lowered heading into the second year of a five-year, $245 million contract.

Smith-Njigba did most of his damage on a game-long 48-yard reception, which came on a pass from Drew Lock on Seattle's third possession and took the ball to the Cowboys' one-yard line. Despite the narrowly missed scoring opportunity -- DeeJay Dallas punched it in from one yard out on the next play -- it was a second straight successful exhibition showing for the Ohio State product, who'd also recorded three catches in the preseason opener versus the Vikings.

San Francisco also welcomed back starting quarterback Brock Purdy (elbow) from injury, who found Aiyuk for a 15-yard gain on the first-team offense's lone drive. The 2020 first-round pick blossomed into a reliable fantasy option last season after posting a career-best 78/1015/8 receiving line across 17 games.

The second-year pro was exponentially better on the ground than during a preseason-opening loss to the Jaguars during which he netted only four yards on three carries, but Dowdle's own solid night likely leaves the two very close in their job battle for a backup role heading into next Saturday night's preseason finale versus the Raiders.

Although he was nowhere near as efficient on a per-carry basis as during Dallas' preseason-opening loss to the Jaguars, Vaughn still made the highlight reel with a nifty 14-yard touchdown run on which he spun away from would-be tacklers to cap off the Cowboys' first second-half drive. Vaughn is essentially a lock for a roster spot already, so he may actually see modest playing time in next Saturday night's exhibition finale versus the Raiders while Dowdle and Davis likely play out the final chapter of their job battle.

The South Alabama product led the Cowboys in receptions, receiving yards and targets, pushing his line to 6-95-1 across his first pair of exhibition contests.

The fantasy star did not receive a carry in Saturday's exhibition, and he could lose a few rushing attempts to Christian McCaffrey over the course of the season.

Warren is still likely to begin the regular season as the second back behind Harris, but he's making the case to see the field more regularly in his second professional campaign.

    Moore brought in two of three targets for seven yards and rushed once for three yards in the Cardinals' 38-10 preseason loss to the Chiefs on Saturday night.Moore opened the game with the rest of the Cardinals' starters and got some solid work in before exiting. The promising third-year wideout is aiming for a much healthier season in 2023 after being limited to eight games a year ago, and the Cardinals are counting on Moore to help fill the significant vacuum created by the departure of DeAndre Hopkins during the coming campaign.

In addition to his contributions through the air and the kick return, Downs also had a five-yard punt return. Considering Indianapolis sat the starters Saturday, Downs' work on offense came with backup quarterback Gardner Minshew.

An injury seen more commonly with pitchers in baseball, there haven't been many examples of a quarterback returning from this type of injury. Purdy put any arm strength concerns to rest when he hit Deebo Samuel on a crossing route for 25 yards on the first play of the game. The 23-year-old continued the 10-play opening drive before giving way to Sam Darnold and eventually Trey Lance, who are competing for the backup job this preseason. With a healthy return to the field, Purdy should be ready to start and command a talented roster of playmakers this upcoming season.

Unlike last week's shutout win over the Panthers, Wilson wasn't able to get the Jets into the end zone, but he had an impact play with a 35 yard-run and remained free of turnovers.

He also returned one kickoff for 23 yards and lost a fumble.Dalvin Cook (shoulder), Breece Hall (knee) and Michael Carter were all given the night off, while Israel Abanikanda (thigh) suffered an in-game injury, all adding up to a busy night for Knight. The second-year back was reasonably productive on a per-touch basis, but his early second-quarter fumble did lead to a Buccaneers field goal.

    Stroud completed seven of his 12 pass attempts for 60 yards and no touchdowns or turnovers in Saturday's preseason loss to Miami.Stroud got to play the entire first half in his second preseason start, with incumbent Davis Mills (10/22, 94 yards) entering after halftime, all but confirming that the former will start under center for Houston. The second-overall pick from this year's draft did not post a gaudy line, but it was a marked improved over his first start where he completed just two passes while throwing a pick. Stroud will now attempt the difficult ask of developing as a rookie starter -- with a rookie head coach -- while running an offense that was putrid prior to his arrival.

Tagovailoa would exit after just two drives as he prepares to start for the Dolphins once the regular season kicks off. The 2020 first-round pick is focused on staying healthy after suffering injuries to the head/neck area last year, something he prepared for by learning an improved falling technique through jiu-jitsu practice this past offseason.

    Willis is expected to be under center for the Titans for the entirety of Saturday's exhibition game against the Vikings, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.Willis' big workload comes at the expense of Will Levis, who is dealing with a lower body issue. As a result, the second-year signal caller will get an opportunity to showcase his talents for a full game. He completed 16 of 25 passes for 189 yards and one interception in Tennessee's opening preseason contest against the Bears, while adding 22 yards and one touchdown across three carries on the ground. Willis alternated possessions with Levis in that contest.

However, Evans continued to make an impact as a pass catcher -- his likeliest role once the regular season begins.

However, it was Daniel Bellinger who caught Jones' four-yard TD pass to cap that drive. Waller is looking to rebound after a couple injury-plagued campaigns, and while his early connection with Jones is encouraging, his usage in the red zone and at the goal-line could ultimately determine whether he's able to produce the kind of numbers he did in his career-best 2020 season.

He hasn't found much room to run in his first two games as a pro, tallying only 30 yards on 17 carries. On the bright side, Brown did manage to punch in a goal-line carry from three yards away late in the fourth quarter.

Despite his return to full health, the veteran slot receiver faces a lot more competition for snaps and targets than he did to begin the 2022 campaign, and Shepard could find himself buried on the depth chart and potentially even off the game-day roster for a Week 1 tilt against the Cowboys.

    Penny rushed twice for 18 yards and wasn't targeted during the Eagles' 18-18 preseason tie with the Browns on Thursday night.Penny was the third Eagles running back to record a touch in the contest despite the fact D'Andre Swift got the night off, and he gained 16 of his yards on one carry. The workload was much more abbreviated than Penny's nine-carry tally in the opener against the Ravens, and it could well be the 2018 first-round pick garnering inactive status for Philadelphia's preseason finale at home versus the Colts next Thursday.

    Gainwell rushed twice for six yards in the Eagles' 18-18 preseason tie with the Browns on Thursday night.Gainwell was the first Eagles back to record a touch, but that carry went for a two-yard loss that resulted in a safety. The 2021 fifth-round pick saw one of his competitors for a reserve running back role, Trey Sermon, outperform him by a wide margin with a five-carry, 54-yard, one-touchdown tally on the ground and a 14-yard reception, so the pressure could be on Gainwell during Philadelphia's preseason finale against the Colts at home next Thursday.

Sixth-round rookie Demario Douglas may be passing Thornton on the depth chart behind veterans DeVante Parker and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

  • Seahawks' Devon Witherspoon: Could see time in slot

    The Seahawks are tinkering with the idea of playing Witherspoon (hamstring) in the slot to kick off the season, Eric Williams of FoxSports.com reports.Witherspoon, the No. 5 overall selection in this year's draft, logged 109 snaps at slot corner during his final collegiate season at Illinois, so the role is not foreign to him. Riq Woolen and Mike Jackson are slated to start outside at corner, so Seattle is looking to ge their best 11 defenders on the field as much as possible. It should be noted, they used five defensvie backs on 70 percent of their snaps during the regular-season in 2022. Witherspoon missed the first two days of camp before resolving contract issues, and has been hampered with a lingering hamstring injury since Aug. 7, so a return to health sooner than later would be so he could get in more reps at the slot.

How much work Hall sees out of the gate in 2023 presumably hinges on how he looks as he ramps up his practice activity in the coming days and weeks, but the addition of Cook to a running back room that also includes Michael Carter, Zonovan Knight and rookie Israel Abanikanda allows the team to proceed deliberately with Hall.

    In his return to practice Tuesday, Hall (knee) participated in light individual drills, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.Hall, who suffered a torn ACL on Oct. 23 last season, was activated off the PUP list Tuesday, and not surprisingly is being eased back into the mix. While the report notes via coach Robert Saleh that the Jets are very confident Hall will be ready for Week 1, Cimini suggests that the team's plan is to limit the 2022 second-rounder's workload early in the season, while leaning more heavily on newcomer Dalvin Cook, whose signing with New York is now official. How much work Hall sees out of the gate in 2023 presumably hinges on how he looks as he ramps up his practice activity in the coming days and weeks, but the addition of Cook to a running back room that also includes Michael Carter, Zonovan Knight and rookie Israel Abanikanda, allows the team to proceed deliberately with Hall, who averaged 5.8 yards per carry in the seven regular-season games he saw action in last year prior to sustaining his injury.

McCollum, who boasts 4.33 speed, is working this summer on learning to play with more controlled speed, including when positioning himself for tackles. In Friday's preseason loss to the Steelers, McCollum's top-end velocity played an integral part in his second-quarter interception, but he also ended up overrunning a tackle opportunity on Pittsburgh's George Pickens in the opening period that led to a touchdown for the talented second-year wideout.

The 29-year-old backup started out very clean, including when, just four plays after being inserted into the game, he threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to rookie wideout A.T. Perry near the goal line. However, Winston looked to struggle with defensive pressure while working with New Orleans' second-team offensive line for most of the second quarter. He wound up being sacked three times -- the last of which pushed the Saints out of field-goal range near the end of the first half. Winston still outperformed fourth-round rookie Haener, who completed 10 of 17 passes for one score and a pick in the second half, so the veteran shouldn't be in jeopardy of losing the No. 2 quarterback role anytime soon.

    In his latest projection, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site suggests that Douglas is a near-lock to make the team's Initial 53-man roster.Per Lazar, Douglas -- who the Patriots list at 5-8, 192 pounds -- profiles as a dynamic route-runner who brings a level of quickness and burst that the other receivers don't. As things stand the 2023 sixth-rounder is competing with Kayshon Boutte, Tre Nixon and Thyrick Pitts for what could be the team's final WR spot behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne and Tyquan Thornton. If the Liberty product does make the team, he'd figure to begin his pro career off the fantasy radar, but if injuries hit down the road Douglas could eventually emerge as a sleeper in deeper formats.

From a fantasy perspective, the presence of Elliott could cost Stevenson some work in early-down and short-yardage situations, but the 2021 fourth-rounder should still handle enough touches (including in the team's passing game) on a weekly basis to maintain lineup utility. Beyond the aforementioned duo, Ty Montgomery (leg) , Pierre Strong (undisclosed) and Kevin Harris are in the mix for depth/change-of-pace slotting in New England's RB corps.

That would make Aug. 25's game against the Lions his final chance to suit up for exhibition reps prior to Week 1. In the meantime, Chuba Hubbard and Raheem Blackshear will continue to handle valuable first-team reps.

Neither player found any appreciable running room, but Brown was slightly more productive than his teammate with his one catch. The Shepherd product garnered First-Team Division II All-American honors in 2022 after compiling just under 2,500 total scrimmage yards and 24 total touchdowns, so the Buccaneers are likely to give both him and the similarly accomplished Tucker as long a look as they can during the remaining two preseason games.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Struggles in preseason opener

    Mason rushed five times for 17 yards and failed to bring in his only target in Sunday's preseason opener against the Raiders.Mason struggled to find running lanes mainly due to poor offensive line play, as none of the three San Francisco backs active Sunday sniffed a four-yard carry average. It is worth noting that the undrafted standout from last season didn't get a carry until the 49ers' fifth drive, with Tyrion Davis-Price (9-29-0) starting ahead of him sans Christian McCaffrey (rest) and Elijah Mitchell (hip). With neither back performing well, Mason's spot on the roster is likely still secure. Perhaps the lineup swap will motivate the 24-year-old to shake off the rust against the Broncos on Saturday.

    Darnold completed five of his eight pass attempts for 84 yards with no touchdowns or turnovers while playing the third quarter of Sunday's exhibition with Las Vegas.Darnold started the second half behind Trey Lance as promised by head coach Kyle Shanahan, but he gave the former just one quarter of playing time compared to Lance's full half. The veteran of this young QB room performed well in his brief appearance, firing several crisp passes on a nine-play drive to open the second half that ended with Darnold being stuffed on a sneak attempt on fourth down. With both quarterbacks performing well Sunday, the competition for who will backup Brock Purdy (elbow) continues with a matchup against the Rams on Saturday.

The notable play happened in the red zone on the 49ers' fourth drive when Lance threw an ill-advised pass across his body that should have been intercepted in the end zone, but the defender bobbled it into the hands of a diving Ross Dwelley for a score. The second happened when the 2021 first-round pick simply threw the ball to a Raiders' defender, who might have been so startled that he dropped it. Lance did have a couple nice moments to hang his hat on, but most of his playing time in the first half was spent under duress due to poor offensive line play. The 49ers will attempt to get its entire offense going in an upcoming exhibition against Denver on Saturday.

    Williams led the Bills with seven total tackles (six solo) in Saturday's preseason win over Indianapolis.The third-round rookie is no longer in the running for the open starting middle linebacker spot, but he has a chance to earn a meaningful role on the outside. Stud defender Matt Milano will man one of those spots on a full-time basis, but there's a role for Williams, even if it's as part of a rotation on the other side. Expect him to see a decent amount of action in the team's last two preseason games.

Unfortunately, Dowdle also committed a crucial fumble just outside Jacksonville's red zone at the end of the first quarter after catching a short pass from Cooper Rush. The battle for backup snaps behind Tony Pollard (ankle) remains open, but Dowdle likely can't afford many more big mistakes if he wants to stay in the mix.

    Stephens caught five of seven targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss to the Jaguars.A big-bodied wide receiver in college, Stephens was converted to tight end by the Cowboys after signing as a UDFA and has impressed the coaching staff so far in camp. He carried that momentum forward into his first NFL preseason action, leading the team in receiving and capping a drive toward the end of the fourth quarter with a 15-yard TD pass from Will Grier. Stephens has a tough path to the Week 1 roster with Jake Ferguson, Peyton Hendershot and 2023 second-round pick Luke Schoonmaker seemingly locked into spots, but if he keeps showing out in exhibition play, the team may not want to risk losing him by trying to get him onto the practice squad.

The Michigan product has gotten in little work since being drafted in the second round of the 2023 draft due to plantar fasciitis, but he appeared healthy Saturday and should be able to start ramping up with an eye on getting ready for Week 1.

The Utah State product does have an advantage over the player that might be his most direct competition for a roster spot, Kaylon Geiger, in that he was able to record five receptions while also accruing 324 total yards on returns across five games in 2022. The competition between the two will continue in Saturday night's second preseason game against the Jets.

    Wolford completed 10 of 17 passes for 111 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions and rushed once for two yards in the Buccaneers' 27-17 preseason loss to the Steelers on Friday night.Wolford was the third quarterback into the contest after Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask played out the first installment of their intriguing preseason job battle, and it was the third-string signal-caller that actually posted the best numbers of the night. While plenty of attention is rightfully heaped on the Mayfield-Trask competition, it's worth noting Wolford isn't exactly the average No. 3 quarterback -- he had a spring-league starting stint during his days in the Alliance of American Football and also has postseason NFL experience in addition to seven regular-season appearances with the Rams from 2020-22. Consequently, it wouldn't be entirely out of the question if Wolford finds his way onto the field at some point during the 2023 campaign, given Mayfield and Trask are far from locks to play effectively over an entire season.

The undrafted rookie struggled for running room overall, unsurprising given the quality of the offensive line he played behind. Tucker is still firmly behind the top trio of Rachaad White, Chase Edmonds and Ke'Shawn Vaughn on the running back depth chart, but considering his intriguing body of work at the college level, he's likely to get a solid amount of snaps again in Saturday night's second preseason game against the Jets.

He has no competition ahead of the season and is locked into the starting kicker role for his fourth NFL campaign. Bass has reportedly looked great in training camp as well. The weather is always a concern during fantasy playoff weeks, but Bass has proven himself to be quite reliable and plays in an offense that is typically in the league's top group. He should be one of the first five kickers off the board in almost any format.

The Bills brought in Kyle Allen to serve as Josh Allen's backup this season, but we're not sure there isn't a competition here for the No. 2 role, especially since Barkley has been with the Bills on and off since 2018. Barkley outperformed Kyle Allen by a good margin Saturday, as the latter was 8-of-15 with no touchdowns, one interception (a pick-six) and a 52.6 rating.

However, with Damien Harris out with a knee injury, Murray has a chance to state his case for a more meaningful role for the start of the season, and perhaps a clear-cut No. 2 role if Harris' injury lingers. James Cook likes like the starter, but this is a high-powered offense and one that has historically rotated running backs, so Murray's preseason usage and output is worth monitoring. He also appears to have a roster spot locked up following the season-ending, off-field injury to teammate Nyheim Hines.

    Jones did record an official reception in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys, but he teamed up with Trevor Lawrence to complete a two-point attempt in the exhibition win.Jones was active with the starters despite not being targeted, all but confirming his status as the third wideout on the depth chart behind Calvin Ridley and Christian Kirk to begin the year. The 28-year-old posted his best fantasy output after joining the Jaguars last season, but the addition of Ridley this offseason could cut into his targets.

A report from Zak Keefer of The Athletic in May indicated Granson isn't a lock to make the final roster, but his status seems more secure during the preseason especially with the other injuries at the position. Granson has caught 76.4 percent of his 55 targets since the Colts made him a fourth-round pick in 2021, but he's averaged only 9.7 yards per catch and is still searching for his first NFL touchdown.

Dulin has been an impact player on special teams, so he should find a spot on the roster in any scenario.

The sixth-round pick was brought in to help a position group that lacked reliable pass-catchers last year, but he showed us that he could be more than just a passing-down specialist. Vaughn just played a strong hand that could have him jumping ahead of Malik Davis -- who struggled replacing Tony Pollard -- on the depth chart come Week 1. More eyes will certainly be on Vaughn when the Cowboys visit the Seahawks on Saturday for more preseason play.

Richardson held his own in his first start and unless he takes a big step backward later in the preseason he's likely to start the regular season opener over Minshew.

The rookie fourth-round selection and two-time college national champion connected with Puka Nacua for a 10-yard touchdown pass late in the first half for his first NFL scoring toss, and he also hit the fifth-round pick for a 17-yard gain on his first completion. Bennett could conceivably beat out Brett Rypien for the No. 2 job behind Matthew Stafford with a strong enough preseason, although given the veteran's recent injury history, head coach Sean McVay may be more comfortable entrusting that role to a player who at least has a modicum of regular-season experience.

    Coach Nick Sirianni said Watkins didn't play in Saturday's 20-19 preseason loss at Baltimore due to a hamstring injury, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.While A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith were among Eagles starting offensive players that were DNPs, Watkins' absence was due to a health concern along with Britain Covey (hamstring) and Deon Cain (ankle). Greg Ward did see the field Saturday but made an early exit due to cramps. Watkins seems secure in his role as Philadelphia's No. 3 WR, but the current issue could allow newcomer Olamide Zaccheaus to make inroads on the job.

  • Eagles' Rashaad Penny: Nine touches in preseason debut

    Penny rushed nine times for 34 yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Eagles' 20-19 preseason loss to the Ravens on Saturday night.Penny paced the Eagles in carries and received seven more rushing touches than fellow offseason arrival D'Andre Swift while playing on Philadelphia's first four possessions. Penny appears fully recovered from the fractured fibula he suffered in Week 5 of last season with the Seahawks, but come the regular season, it's likely the disparity in carries between him and Swift is not as expansive. Given his ongoing acclimation to a new offensive system, Penny is likely to once again log a solid workload by preseason standards in Thursday night's home exhibition battle versus the Browns.

    Flowers didn't officially draw a target and rushed once for one yard in the Ravens' 20-19 preseason win over the Eagles on Saturday night.Flowers' quiet stat line is a bit deceiving, as the rookie first-round pick drew illegal use of hands and defensive holding penalties over a three-play sequence that straddled the end of the first quarter and the beginning of the second. Flowers was also guilty of a penalty in his own right, getting whistled for a false start on the Ravens' first offensive play. A mixed bag of a debut now behind him, Flowers will aim to get on the stat sheet as a receiver for the first time when Baltimore tangles with the Commanders on Monday night, Aug. 21 in its second preseason game.

The top pick from the 2021 draft bounced back from the turnover like he did so many times last year, finishing the day on a high note with a TD pass to Christian Kirk. Lawrence also got his new weapon, Calvin Ridley, involved for what is shaping up to be a dynamic passing offense in Jacksonville this season.

Rookie Anthony Richardson started Saturday's game, but he made a couple rookie mistakes including an interception. Veteran Gardner Minshew might be the preferred starter for those investing in Pittman, as his production is easier to project week-to-week compared to a 21-year-old raw prospect.

Buffalo traded up in the first round to draft the receiving tight end, and early reports indicate that the team has no intention of making the rookie sit behind the incumbent veteran, Dawson Knox, either. Hopefully we get a longer look at the exciting tight end prospect against the Steelers next Saturday.

    Beasley caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in Friday's exhibition loss to the Lions.The Giants rested most of their starters for the preseason opener, so Beasley's presence may have been an indication that he still needs to earn a roster spot. On the other hand, the veteran wideout made the most of his time on the field, leading the team with four catches on his 10 snaps. His longest reception was an 18-yard gain on a pass from Tommy DeVito on the final drive of the first quarter. Beasley excelled under head coach Brian Daboll when both were in Buffalo, and he could be more than just an afterthought if he makes New York's 53-man roster given the unsettled pecking order in the team's receiver room.

The 2018 first-round pick looked refreshed after the lengthy, non-injury related layoff, catching both targets from his new quarterback Trevor Lawrence before exiting with the rest of the starters. Ridley's talent is unquestioned, and he appears to be happy in Jacksonville, so we could be in store for a bounce-back season from the 26-year-old.

He was the last quarterback to see the field for Pittsburgh on Friday, and he had limited production.

The 23-year-old handled all three rushing attempts on the ensuing drive, with the third being punched in for an eight-yard score. Cook was not targeted as a passer, but may be forced to show us that part of his game following the announcement that Bills' receiving back Nyheim Hines (knee) will miss the entire 2023 season. The other veteran back the front office brought in to compete with Cook, Damien Harris (knee), did not play Saturday and the team has yet to update the status of his knee injury.

The arrival of Moore was always an obvious upgrade for Fields and the Bears offense, but Saturday's game provided an on-field example of just how much more help Fields will have in 2023 compared to 2022.

As much as Herbert's history implies he'll never be a volume pass catcher, his ability to weave through traffic might give the Bears reason to dial up screens for Herbert, at least occasionally. In an improved Bears offense that figures to run plenty, Herbert's arrow is pointed up with David Montgomery no longer around.

  • Packers' Luke Musgrave: Flashes in preseason debut

    Musgrave was targeted three times and caught one passes for eight yards in Friday's 36-19 preseason victory over the Bengals.Musgrave did not have a big night in the box score, but he could have had quarterback Jordan Love connected with him on a couple plays that had big yardage written all over them. Regardless of the results, the rookie second-rounder worked as Green Bay's starting tight end and was a factor in the passing game when Love was on the field. He is well past the knee injury that cut short his final collegiate season and is a player to consider in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.

    Toure was targeted four times and caught three passes for 56 yards in Friday's 36-19 preseason victory over the Bengals.Toure made a mark during last year's preseason schedule, and he did the same in his first opportunity to do so in 2023, tallying two catches of at least 25 yards. All three of the passes he caught were thrown by backup quarterback Sean Clifford, so although he is listed as a starting wide receiver on the depth chart on Green Bay's official website, he is presumably no higher than the fourth option at his position behind Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed.

He threw a touchdown pass, was intercepted twice and added two carries for 27 yards.The interceptions -- one of which was returned for a touchdown -- were hardly ideal, but the fifth-round rookie otherwise impressed in his first appearance as a professional, displaying good accuracy and making plays with both his arm and his feet. Clifford is not pushing Jordan Love for the starting quarterback job by any means, but Friday's showing all but locks him in as Green Bay's backup quarterback to kick off the 2023 campaign.

Murray is the unquestioned starter and franchise quarterback when he is available to play, but his status for Week 1 remains murky at best, which would make McCoy the de-facto starter and one of David Blough or Clayton Tune the new backup. Expect both of the younger options to continue logging big playing time, but neither is expected to challenge Murray or McCoy in current roles.

It also keeps Hall in the mix as a returner. Ford was the main kickoff returner in 2022, and special teams coach Stump Mitchell told Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site in June that would still be part of his job.

Instead, Sean Payton went outside of the organization and brought back Adam Trautman, one of his former tight ends from New Orleans to serve as his starting tight end here in Denver. It seemed like a timeshare was going to develop in order to at least keep Dulcich's hands on the field, but based on who started and the number of targets (3 compared to Dulcich's 0), his role may be even smaller than initially feared to begin his sophomore campaign.

That's one of the main reasons the Broncos added a reliable veteran like Samaje, not to just complement the lead back, but also to serve as an insurance policy if Williams is forced to miss time at any point this year.

Bell did just that Friday, hauling in a seven-yard TD strike from Dorian Thompson-Robinson near the end of the third quarter. While a camp battle with Tillman for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart isn't what Bell envisioned when he was taken in the third round in 2022, Moore did leave Friday's contest early with a rib injury.

Perhaps Denver's starters refused to end the day after their first drive resulted in a three-and-out, which was then followed by two missed field goals (12 and 40 yards) off the leg of new kicker Brett Maher. The decision to send the starters back out there a fourth time turned out to be a smart one when the 34-year-old drove down the field and threw a 21-yard strike to Jerry Jeudy for a touchdown, which completely shifted the narrative of how the starters looked under Payton for the first time.

There is little doubt that Harris will be the starting back in Pittsburgh come Week 1, but Warren's inclusion with the first unit shows the growing trust the coaching staff has in its standout UDFA from a year ago.

This competition carries extra significance since Burrow could miss regular-season action due to his injury, though the starter was seen throwing deep passes and sprinting prior to Friday's game.

Dallas has a very young tight end room headlined by 2022 fourth-round pick Jake Ferguson and 2023 second-round selection Luke Schoonmaker (foot), so if Stephens continues to handle the transition well and proves he can hold up as a blocker while providing a mismatch as a receiving option, he could find his way onto the Week 1 roster.

  • Seahawks' Geno Smith: Unlikely to play Thursday

    Smith isn't slated to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Vikings, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.Smith handled the initial throws with the first-team offense during pregame warmups before leaving most of the QB reps to Drew Lock. As a result, Smith's next chance for some exhibition action will arrive Saturday, Aug. 19 against the Cowboys. It's unclear if the Seahawks will give him any snaps during the preseason, but he likely doesn't need them after turning a comeback 2022 campaign into a three-year, $105 million extension with the team back in March.
