Jeremy Maclin

Maclin catches 6 balls, avoids knee injury

Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin appeared to suffer a serious injury when his right knee buckled when he tried to make a cut in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Steelers.  That's the same knee he's torn his ACL in twice.  Maclin was in obvious pain on the field but was able to walk off under his own power.  Then he returned for Philly's next possession and caught a pass on the 1st play of the drive.  Maclin finished with 6 catches for 43 yards.  He was targeted on 8 of QB Nick Foles' 29 attempts (27.6%).  Maclin has top 20 fantasy upside this season if he can stay healthy.  But between last year's torn ACL, the minor dings this summer and Thursday night's scare, he's certainly a risky fantasy pick at his 6th-round ADP.

Britt dealing with minor shoulder injury

Rams WR Kenny Britt might be held out of the 3rd preseason game after suffering a shoulder injury in last weekend's exhibition.  Beat writer Jim Thomas calls it a "ding," so it doesn't sound like a serious concern.  Of course, injuries have been a recurring issue for Britt, but at least it's not his knee.  He remains an intriguing late-round sleeper in fantasy drafts.

McCoy leaves with thumb issue

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy left Thursday night's game against Pittsburgh to get an X-ray on his right thumb, according to NFL Network.  We'll await results before speculating, but it's obviously a situation to watch.  The fact that he played at all continues to indicate that his toe isn't a problem, at least.

Update: Insider Jeff McLane reports that McCoy has been diagnosed with a sprained thumb.  "No fractures or torn ligaments," McLane adds.  We'll keep an eye on him over the next couple weeks, but he should be just fine for Week 1.  We're not adjusting his projections.

Tony Romo

Romo says he's ready

Cowboys QB Tony Romo told the Dallas Morning News on Thursday that he's ready to go out and play a full game after rehabbing from back surgery.  "I mean I don't know that you would go to play in the preseason if you didn't think you could play football," he said. "I mean it's football."  It's just another indication that we probably shouldn't worry about the Cowboys starter performing at the start of the season.  Of course, we'll see how he looks in the team's 3rd preseason game, but we're comfy with Romo toward the bottom of starter territory -- with upside beyond that range.

Anquan Boldin

Boldin to come close to Crabtree's production?

49ers insider Matt Maiocco expects WR Anquan Boldin to "put up comparable numbers" to WR Michael Crabtree this season.  "They are clearly the 49ers' Nos. 1 and 1A receivers," Maiocco adds.  We're expecting the younger, more explosive Crabtree to finish safely ahead of Boldin in fantasy points, but the veteran might end up as the better value in drafts.  While Crabtree is going in the 4th round, Boldin is lasting until the 11th.

Derek Carr

Carr will miss 3rd preseason game

Raiders QB Derek Carr won't play in the team's 3rd preseason game on Friday.  He's been cleared from last week's concussion but is still dealing with sore ribs.  The rookie seemed to be making up ground on QB Matt Schaub, but this kills any chance he had at winning the Week 1 starting job.  We're still expecting Carr to make starts this season, but you should avoid Raiders QBs in your fantasy draft.

Jamaal Charles

Charles back at practice Thursday

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles returned to practice on Thursday.  He missed less than a week with the bruised foot he suffered moving out of his dorm room.  It's a non-issue moving forward.  Charles deserves to be selected among the first 4 picks of standard fantasy drafts.

Charles Clay

Clay will play this weekend

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) will play against the Cowboys on Saturday.  He missed 2 weeks of camp and Miami's first 2 preseason games, but it sounds like he's back to 100% now.  Consider Clay's fantasy stock unaffected by the knee issue.  He's a low-end TE1 best used in a committee.

Knowshon Moreno

MIA -RB

Moreno to make Dolphins debut

RB Knowshon Moreno will make his Dolphins debut in this weekend's preseason game against the Cowboys.  It was a rough offseason for the former Bronco, who showed up to spring practices overweight and then had knee surgery.  He's near or at 100% now, though.  We're curious to see how the Fins mix and match Moreno with Lamar Miller.  We're expecting Miller to be the primary ball-carrier, with Moreno dominating passing-down work.  But it's a situation we'll be watching closely this weekend.

Pierre Thomas

Thomas' role changing?

Saints RB Pierre Thomas acknowledged Wednesday that things will be different for him in 2014.  "I know my role is going to change a whole lot this year," Thomas said, per NOLA.com. "I'm going to do more pass protection and route running. I'm improving my route running game."  He, of course, mentioned that he'll still run the ball, too, and said his backfield mates are "going to have to outwork me" to take his touches away.  For his part, HC Sean Payton said the team has repeatedly envisioned an altered role for Thomas at the outset of recent seasons but adapted it throughout the year because of Thomas' smarts, versatility and all-around value.  As a fantasy owner, you should be wary of Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson infringing on Thomas' workload.  Thomas has delivered terrific fantasy value in the past -- but largely because he was criminally undervalued at draft time.  He's going at a more appropriate 6th-round ADP this year, which makes him a decent option instead of a steal.  If the Saints are trying to be "unpredictable" on offense, however -- as Thomas said Wednesday -- the fantasy fallout could be a trio of backs that are tough to count on in your lineup.  We'll take Thomas as a RB3 (or late RB2) in PPR formats, but we're not chasing him this season.
