Sebastian Janikowski, K SEA

Seahawks dump Myers, go with Seabass

The Seahawks released K Jason Myers. It means they'll go into the regular season with former Raider Sebastian Janikowski as their guy. It's no surprise, as the team guaranteed him $600K. The 40-year-old is more of a wait-and-see fantasy option.

The Redskins have signed RB Adrian Peterson. AP is a future Hall-of-Famer, but his name is much bigger than his game at this point. He averaged just 3.4 yards per carry on 156 attempts between the Saints and Cardinals last year. His 2.3 yards after contact per attempt ranked 49th among 78 qualifying RBs, per Pro Football Focus. He finished 46th among 47 RBs in Football Outsiders' DVOA. The good news for Peterson is that his competition for early-down work in Washington is Rob Kelley and his career 3.9 yards per carry and Samaje Perine, who's sidelined with a sprained ankle. We'd still consider Kelley the favorite for the job right now, but Peterson will be worth monitoring closely over the next few weeks.

Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (wrist) returned to practice on Monday. He missed last weekend's preseason game, but the wrist is nothing to worry about. Thomas remains a nice value at his 4th-round ADP.

Saints TE Ben Watson "still looks like he's in the prime of his career," according to insider Joel Erickson. He's "made eye-popping, contested catches a normal occurrence in his return to the Saints," Erickson writes. Watson is 37 now but racked up 61 catches in Baltimore last season. And he has 3 years of experience in the Saints offense, including a 74-825-6 line back in 2015. There hasn't been much buzz on Watson, but he appears locked in as New Orleans' lead TE. And he's remained dirt cheap, with an ADP sitting in the 16th round.

The Vikings released veteran K Kai Forbath. They’ll go with rookie Daniel Carlson, who drilled a 57-yarder in Week 1 of the preseason. He should emerge as an in-season streaming option.

Bears TE Adam Shaheen has been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's relatively good news considering the injury looked much worse when it happened in Saturday night's preseason game. Per Rapoport, Shaheen has a chance to be ready for Week 1. The 2nd-year TE was having an impressive preseason before going down. He's behind Trey Burton in the pecking order and isn't a great bet for consistent fantasy production this season. But Shaheen's return will be good news for QB Mitchell Trubisky.

The 49ers' backfield took another hit over the weekend. RB Joe Williams suffered a rib fracture and a "deep" hip bruise in Saturday's game against the Texans, according to NBC Sports Bay Area. He's expected to miss "at least the opening of the regular season." Williams faced opportunity in the wake of injuries to Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida. His injuries now give way to Alfred Morris, Jeremy McNichols and Raheem Mostert. We'll see if Williams can make his way to 2018 relevance.

Cowboys starting FS Xavier Woods suffered a hamstring strain in Saturday's exhibition game against the Bengals and might miss the regular-season opener. According to The Athletic, Woods is expected to miss 3-4 weeks. Dallas' opener sits 3 weeks and 1 day from the date of his injury. The Cowboys have gone through camp extremely thin at safety, listing Woods and fellow starter Jeff Heath as each other's backups. Fortunately for them, the free-agent market still holds plenty of former starters at the position -- including George Iloka, whom Cincinnati released Sunday. ESPN's Todd Archer says the Cowboys are considering Iloka, among others. Dallas, of course, has also been linked to disgruntled Seahawks FS Earl Thomas all offseason. We'll see where this goes and when Woods makes it back to the field.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) returned to practice on Sunday. He ended up missing a couple of weeks -- plus the first 2 preseason games -- with what insider Jeff Howe reported is a "slight tear" in his knee. We'll be keeping a close eye on Burkhead over the next few weeks. If healthy, he should open the season as New England's lead ball-carrier. RB Sony Michel remains sidelined with his knee issue.

Browns HC Hue Jackson said there's "a chance" WR Josh Gordon plays in the opener against the Steelers. "Obviously, we're just going to take it one step at a time," Jackson added. "His focus is going to be on meetings and conditioning, and then we'll just kind of go from there. Hopefully, we can get him up and running by the first game." Gordon rejoined the team on Saturday but isn't yet allowed to practice -- and there's "no timetable" for when that will chance, according to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. Throw in a new QB and a new offense, and there are still at least a few hurdles to clear before Gordon is a fantasy factor again.
