Thomas to return punts

Seahawks S Earl Thomas will enter the season as the team's primary punt returner.  It's no surprise, because Thomas filled that role this summer.  But it's certainly noteworthy that the team would make such a decision after giving Thomas a big contract extension this offseason.  The role certainly adds value to Thomas' IDP stock in fantasy football leagues that count return yardage.  It would also seem to add at least a little injury risk.

Michael doesn't practice

Seahawks RB Christine Michael sat out of practice Monday as he continues to deal with a hamstring issue.  The situation doesn't matter too much even if you drafted Michael, because he'll carry little value as long as Marshawn Lynch is healthy.  But a persistent injury would only make it tougher for Michael to push Robert Turbin for backup duties behind Lynch, a role that could certainly come into play this year given the veteran's mileage.

Sio Moore

Moore looks like the starter

Raiders OLB Sio Moore sits atop the "unofficial" depth chart at weak-side LB on the team's official website.  The last update to that page came on Aug. 25, the day before Moore returned to practice following a neck strain in the 3rd preseason game.  We haven't seen an official announcement from the team that Moore beat out Miles Burris for the job, but it sure seems like Moore's the guy.  He carries intriguing upside into his 2nd season, with strong ability as a tackler and pass-rusher.  Moore ranked among the team's best defenders when on the field as a rookie last year but saw his playing time limited by injuries.  Look at more as a late target in your IDP draft or a guy to watch on the waiver wire.

David Ausberry

Ausberry back at practice

Raiders TE David Ausberry returned to practice on Monday.  He'd been out since undergoing knee surgery about 4 weeks ago.  Ausberry was the favorite for Oakland's starting job before going down but now figures to split time with TE Mychal Rivera.  It's a hands-off situation in fantasy.

Derek Carr

Raiders will start Carr

The Raiders have announced QB Derek Carr as their Week 1 starter over Matt Schaub, according to Jay Glazer.  It's no shock after Carr put in a stellar preseason finale and Schaub spent August struggling with his arm strength.  Carr looks interesting as a long-term fantasy prospect, but we wouldn't want to trust him this season, even in a 2-QB format.  The Oakland pass-catching corps doesn't offer a ton of support/upside.

Robert Griffin III

Griffin says they fixed it

Washington QB Robert Griffin III says the offense has worked through its preseason issues.  “We fixed what we had to fix in practice,” he told CSNWashington.com. “That’s for us to know and you guys to find out.”  Obviously, we can't really know how much truth there is to RG3's words until Sunday's regular-season debut.  But the star QB brings plenty of talent -- and plenty of supporting talent -- to be worth betting on in fantasy lineups against Houston.

Bruce Carter

Cowboys finally set LBs?

Cowboys OLB Bruce Carter told reporters Monday that he expects to start on the strong side and play the weak side in the nickel sub packages, according to the Dallas Morning News.  He also said Justin Durant will start on the weak side and Rolando McClain in the middle.  None is worth chasing in IDP leagues right now, but Carter's athletic ability and apparent 3-down role give him the most upside.

Cam Newton

Newton "still sore"

Panthers HC Ron Rivera admitted that QB Cam Newton (ribs) is "still sore."  Rivera did suggest that Newton is improving, though, and revealed that he was able to throw more on Monday than the team expected.  Newton is trying on different flak jackets to find one he's most comfortable in.  He's on track to play this weekend but clearly won't be at 100%.

Knowshon Moreno

Moreno looks like Miami's lead back

Dolphins OC Bill Lazor hinted that RB Knowshon Moreno will open the season as the lead back.  It was more what Lamar Miller didn't do this preseason than anything Moreno did.  "If you're talking about the preseason games, his production needs to improve," Lazor said of Miller, who averaged just 3.4 yards per carry in August.  "I have no doubts about how explosive and productive he can be in space. There might be some schemes that are a little bit different for him and the more reps he gets at them the more decisive he is from the backfield."  Miller and Moreno will both see plenty of action against the Patriots this weekend, but Moreno looks like the safer fantasy play.

Ryan Succop

TEN -K

Titans sign Succop, release Coons

The Titans have released rookie K Travis Coons and signed K Ryan Succop.  The Chiefs dumped Succop over the weekend to save money, but he's connected on an acceptable 81% of his FGs over the past 5 seasons.  You should be able to do better for your fantasy kicker, though.
