The preseason is basically over. No starters will see action this Thursday. Third-string QBs and 4th-string RBs will rule the night.

So that makes now the perfect time to look back on what we learned over the past 3 weeks of "action." Some teams showed us little. Some surprised us with their playing-time decisions. Others gave us exactly what we expected to see. Let's run through some key situations for this week's fantasy football drafts ...
