Russell Wilson, QB SEA

3 hours ago

Seahawks lose LT for season

The Seahawks lost starting LT George Fant to an ACL tear in Friday night's preseason game. Fant hasn't proved to be a special talent, but it's a bad loss for a team that has already struggled on the O-line. It harms the fantasy outlook for all Seattle RBs. We're not changing the projections for QB Russell Wilson, but losing Fant could make life more challenging for him all year.

Bears RB Jordan Howard suffered a minor eye injury in Friday's walkthrough and is not expected to play Saturday, NFL Network reports. We'll see if it lingers, but there seems no reason to worry about his fantasy outlook.

Seahawks 7th-round rookie RB Chris Carson played with the 1st-team offense in Friday night's preseason game against the Vikings. He was on the field for 9 of 22 snaps with QB Russell Wilson. RB Eddie Lacy played 13. It's certainly worth noting that neither Thomas Rawls nor C.J. Prosise played in this one. But it still feels like Carson is pushing for a regular-season role. He's reportedly been impressive in training camp and turned his 7 touches into 44 yards vs. Minnesota. We're not ready to recommend Carson as a redraft pick just yet, but he's made this Seahawks backfield even more crowded.

Panthers QB Cam Newton won't play tomorrow afternoon against the Titans, but he's on track for Carolina's 3rd preseason game next week, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Newton's rehab from throwing-shoulder surgery has gone slowly (by design) but smoothly. "Cam is throwing more each day, and he feels fine," Pelissero added. We're looking forward to seeing him in action next week.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will miss the 2nd preseason game with a hand injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, and we don't have any other details. HC Bill O'Brien has said Hopkins is fine and that they're just making sure he's good to go for the regular season, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. We'll keep an eye on this, but we're not moving Hopkins in the WR rankings.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran predicts Chad Henne will be under center for the Jaguars come Week 1. It's the fallout from QB Blake Bortles' brutal performance in Thursday night's preseason game. "This regime isn’t about the future, it’s about which players they feel give them the best chance to win in Houston on Sept. 10," O'Halloran writes. "They’ll take Check-down Chad over a quarterback whose confidence looks shattered." He also points out that playing Bortles exposes him to an injury that could guarantee his $19 million salary next year. O'Halloran even believes that Bortles could end up getting cut. He's obviously undraftable right now.

Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) has been sidelined all week after returning to practice last Friday. HC Jim Caldwell claims it's not a setback, though. "He's just got a couple issues that he's dealing with," Caldwell said. "He's got a couple things and not quite ready yet, so hopefully he'll continue to heal and we'll get him back out there soon." Ebron has had trouble staying on the field as a pro, missing 8 games through 3 seasons. He's not off to a good start in 2017. There's some breakout potential for the 24-year-old, but he also comes with plenty of risk in fantasy drafts.

Raiders CB Sean Smith was arrested Thursday and charged with felony assault over a July 4 incident, according to TMZ. Oakland had previously benched the former starter in favor of T.J. Carrie, according to NFL Network. Don't be surprised if Smith is soon gone from the team entirely.

In his 1st action since the big Sammy Watkins trade, Bills QB Tyrod Taylor looked out of sorts. He completed just 8 of 18 passes for 53 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles -- and was picked off twice. He had "as tough of a time as one could remember in his two-plus years in Buffalo," insider Joe Buscaglia wrote. In Taylor's defense, he played without Jordan Matthews and behind an offensive line that was regularly beat by the Eagles pass rush. But the QB has also reportedly been inconsistent in training camp. Remember that he's learning a new offense under OC Rick Dennison. One of our favorite late-round QB targets at the start of this month, Taylor is tough to like as more than a lower-end QB2 now.

QB Jay Cutler made his debut with the Dolphins Thursday night against the Ravens and appeared to be developing a connection with WR DeVante Parker. Cutler targeted Parker 4 times among 7 total pass attempts, including a 31-yard connection negated by holding. The duo connected on just 1 of their other 3 looks, a 16-yard completion. Cutler also targeted RB Jay Ajayi, WR Jarvis Landry and RB Damien Williams once apiece. After the game, Cutler called Parker a "faster Alshon [Jeffery]," referring to the WR he played with in Chicago -- and peppered with targets in their most recent work together. It's early, but we'll be watching this duo in the "dress rehearsal" Week 3 of the preseason. Parker's current mid-Round 7 ADP makes him a potential upside play in fantasy football drafts.
