Montee Ball

Ball will play in 3rd preseason game

Broncos RB Montee Ball will play in the team's 3rd preseason game on Saturday, according to insider Mike Klis.  It's an impressive recovery after his appendectomy just 19 days ago.  Ball returned to practice on Monday and graduated to full-squad work on Thursday.  The appendectomy is a non-factor.  Ball has top-5 fantasy upside and is worth considering in the late 1st round of fantasy drafts.

LeSean McCoy

McCoy practicing Sunday

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is practicing on Sunday.  It's confirmation that his thumb and toe injuries are non-issues.  McCoy remains the safest of fantasy football's top 4 RBs.

Chad Henne

Henne named Week 1 starter

Jaguars HC Gus Bradley named QB Chad Henne his Week 1 starter after Friday night's preseason game.  Henne has been solid in August, completing 65.7% of his passes with 1 TD and 0 INTs. Blake Bortles has looked like Jacksonville's best QB, though.  The Jags are sticking with their plan to redshirt Bortles for now, but we're still expecting to see the rookie under center at some point this season.  This remains a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts.

Allen Hurns

JAC -WR

Hurns goes for 113 yards and a score

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns exploded for 7 catches, 113 yards and a score in Friday night’s preseason game. The undrafted rookie has been buzzing in training camp and did a good chunk of his damage against the Lions’ starters. Hurns goes 6’1, 198 pounds with 4.55 speed. More importantly, he played in Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch’s offense at the University of Miami. He’s clearly settled in quickly in Jacksonville. Hurns won’t open the season higher than 3rd on the depth chart but could climb in an unsettled WR group. We wouldn’t roster him in standard fantasy leagues, but he’s worth keeping an eye on.

Jace Amaro

Amaro scores in 3rd preseason game

Jets TE Jace Amaro hauled in 4 balls for 37 yards and a score in Friday night's preseason game.  For all the flack the rookie has caught for his performance in training camp, he's looked pretty good in the exhibitions.  He's totaled 8 catches, 79 yards and 1 TD through 3 games.  Amaro appears to have taken over as New York's primary pass-catching TE.  Don't count on him as a weekly fantasy starter this season, but he could emerge as a viable matchup play.

Shane Vereen

NE -RB

Vereen catches 2 TDs

Patriots RB Shane Vereen caught TDs of 40 and 6 yards in Friday night's preseason game against the Panthers. He finished with 5 grabs for 57 yards. That's the type of pass-catching upside that Vereen presents every week. Remember that he caught 47 balls in just 8 games last year. The concern with Vereen is his minimal rushing workload. It makes him prone to duds if he doesn't get it done in the passing game. The high weekly ceiling makes him worth drafting as a RB2 in PPR leagues. He's just a RB3 in non-PPR.

Geno Smith

NYJ -QB

Smith solid again

Jets QB Geno Smith turned in a solid half of football in Friday night's preseason game against the Giants.  He completed 9 of 14 passes for 137 yards and a score, adding 17 more yards on 3 rushes.  Through 3 exhibitions, Smith is sitting on a 69.7% completion rate and an 8.1 yards-per-attempt average.  Consider snatching up Smith near the end of your draft, especially in best-ball leagues.  Your league mates might laugh at you, but Smith's an improved passer with sneaky rushing ability.  He could post high-end QB2 numbers this year.

Greg Hardy

CAR -DL

Hardy out with shoulder bruise

Panthers DE Greg Hardy left Friday night's game with a shoulder bruise.  Given that he still has 15 days until Carolina's 1st real game, this doesn't seem like it should be a serious issue for Hardy.  But we'll keep an eye out for further reports on 1 of the top DE targets in your IDP draft.

Sio Moore

OAK -LB

Moore leaves on stretcher

Raiders LB Sio Moore left the field on a stretcher Friday night after an apparent neck injury.  Trainers immobilized him, but Moore did give a thumbs up as he was leaving the field.  The 2nd-year LB had been working with the 1st team while battling Miles Burris for the starting weak-side job.  We'll keep an eye on his situation and await the specific diagnosis.

UPDATE: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that Moore suffered only a neck strain and will fly home with his team.  We'll await word on how long he'll remain sidelined, but this is obviously great news after what looked like an ugly situation.

Rob Gronkowski

NE -TE

Gronk "optimistic but not certain" for Week 1

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that the Patriots are "optimistic but not certain" that TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will be available for Week 1.  That jibes with Pro Football Talk's report last week that Gronk is "50-50" for the season opener.  He participated in full-team drills this week for the 1st time all offseason but still isn't taking full contact.  Gronkowski remains the biggest risk/reward pick in all of fantasy football.
