  Rams | Pharoh Cooper could miss opener    Sun Aug 28, 10:44 PM

Los Angeles Rams WR Pharoh Cooper (shoulder) could miss the season opener with a shoulder injury expected to sideline him a couple of weeks, head coach Jeff Fisher said.

Footballguys view: Cooper is set to open the season as the #3 receiver in a run-first offense. He doesn't have redraft appeal, but Cooper could be on our deep dynasty radar as a rookie on the fast track to playing time.

  Texans | Will Fuller finds the end zone    Sun Aug 28, 10:26 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller had three catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 34-24 preseason win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Fuller has set himself up as a strong sleeper in the late rounds of deeper drafts. He could be boom/bust week-to-week and the Texans offensive line is still a question mark, but Fuller's vertical speed means he can make your fantasy week on any one play.

  Texans | Brock Osweiler sharp in win    Sun Aug 28, 10:12 PM

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 11 of his 13 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in a 34-24 preseason win over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Osweiler had a great night hooking up with rookie wideouts Braxton Miller and Will Fuller. The Texans offensive line is without some key starters, but they looked good against the Cardinals. Osweiler is not on the fantasy radar except in 2 QB or superflex leagues, but he does have a pass offense on the rise around him.

  Cardinals | Tyrann Mathieu opts to sit out    Sun Aug 28, 10:02 PM

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) was expected to play against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28, but he said he decided to sit out because he didn't feel ready for game action.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer chips a tooth    Sun Aug 28, 09:52 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer suffered a chipped tooth when his helmet was knocked off against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28, but he said he was fine. He completed five of his nine passes for 64 yards and two interceptions.

Footballguys view: Palmer has had a terrible preseason, but his cost is cheap enough to disregard any ominous feeling his summer has given us. The Cardinals do have two hurt wide receivers, but the addition of David Johnson as a bigger part of the offense this year should help an already aggressive passing attack. Palmer is going off of the board as QB8 around the 6th/7th round.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater's shoulder holds up     Sun Aug 28, 09:42 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) completed 12 of his 16 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in a 23-10 preseason win over the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28, and he said his throwing shoulder felt great.

  Bengals | A.J. Green limps off    Sun Aug 28, 09:38 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) limped off the field with a right knee injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Aug. 28, but the team is reporting the injury is not serious.

Footballguys view: Green's injury appeared to be something that happened when he broke in a route without contact, but the team reassured us through a sideline report, so we'll have to rely on that if we are drafting before there are any other developments. Tony Romo was fine before he wasn't, but there's no outward reason to doubt Green's Week 1 status.

  Chargers | Melvin Gordon runs well in loss    Sun Aug 28, 09:28 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon had four carries for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 23-10 preseason loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Gordon's long touchdown run was well-blocked, but he also showed good speed. It appears the microfracture surgery hasn't held him back as a runner. He now has two touchdowns in the preseason after scoring none as a rookie. Gordon's ADP has fallen into the 6th round, where he could be a value if the Chargers running game gets on track.

  Eagles | Rueben Randle headlines Philly's moves    Sun Aug 28, 07:14 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles waived or released WR Rueben Randle, LS John DePalma, CB Randall Evans, OT Andrew Gardner, DT Mike Martin, S Nick Perry and CB Denzel Rice on Sunday, Aug. 28. In addition, the Eagles placed DE Alex McCalister (calf) and LB Joe Walker (knee) on Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Randle was actually relevant in fantasy leagues for stretches of the last two seasons, which is a great sign for Sterling Shepard in his role opposite Odell Beckham Jr. He could get a look before the season starts and we probably haven't heard the last of him. Still, if Randle couldn't make this weak wide receiver group, his future is looking dim.

The New York Jets released RB Lache Seastrunk, PK Ross Martin, OL Jesse Davis, C Kyle Friend, OG Jarvis Harrison, LB Deion Barnes, DT Shelby Harris, DE Helva Matungulu, RB Terry Williams, TE Jason Vander Laan and WR Kyle Williams.

Footballguys view: With the release of Martin, Nick Folk is officially the winner of a kicker battle that was probably over weeks ago. Seastrunk's intriguing suddenness and elusiveness in the open field has failed to make a roster yet again.

  Eagles | Chris Givens released by Philadelphia    Sun Aug 28, 05:25 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Chris Givens was released by the team Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Givens and Rueben Randle were vying for outside receiver spots on a weak depth chart, but the acquisition of Dorial Green-Beckham spelled their doom after weak summers. UDFA Paul Turner has had a great summer and could make the team in Givens/Randle's place.

  Jets | Devin Smith placed on PUP    Sun Aug 28, 05:24 PM

New York Jets WR Devin Smith (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 28, as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL.

Footballguys view: A rookie from the group Jalin Marshall, Robby Anderson, and Charone Peake should make the opening day roster in Smith's spot. The deep ball specialist probably won't make a big contribution this year.

  Dolphins | Xavien Howard should start    Sun Aug 28, 04:18 PM

Miami Dolphins CB Xavien Howard is expected to start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, according to The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

Footballguys view: Howard has barely played a lick this summer, but the Dolphins are that desperate to get second-year wide receiver convert Tony Lippett off of the field at corner. Russell Wilson should be picking on the rookie all afternoon in a trend that will continue until Howard shows he can hang. Byron Maxwell is on the other side of the defense, and his assignment will likely see fewer targets.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald sitting Sunday    Sun Aug 28, 04:02 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will be sidelined against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald has played through injuries in the past, and played well, so we're not worried about his status for Week 1 against New England. If John Brown's concussion keeps him off the field, Fitzgerald should be in line for more targets, as long as his knee injury doesn't worsen.

  Cardinals | John Brown not playing    Sun Aug 28, 03:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (concussion) will not play against the Houston Texans Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Brown's lingering concussion symptoms are casting a long shadow over his fantasy draft stock this year. We'll watch this closely, with Jaron Brown and JJ Nelson both in line to get more playing time if Brown can't get cleared for Week 1 against New England.

  Colts | Jack Mewhort not out long    Sun Aug 28, 03:15 PM

Indianapolis Colts OG Jack Mewhort (knee) will only miss two to four weeks after suffering a knee injury Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: The Colts can breathe a sigh of relief with this news, but their offensive line is still a mess on the right side and their cornerstone left tackle Anthony Costanzo is having a rough summer. Andrew Luck's nightmarish 2015 was due in part to offensive line play, so we'll watch this closely in Week 1 against the Lions.

  Chargers | Branden Oliver leaves game    Sun Aug 28, 02:32 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver (Achilles') suffered an Achilles' tendon injury during the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Aug. 28, and will not return.

Footballguys view: Dreamius Smith and Kenneth Farrow are the next men up and one of them is going to win an opening day roster spot unless the Chargers bring in a veteran released by another team. Oliver is a good all-around back and he was poised to have value if Danny Woodhead or Melvin Gordon got hurt this year.

  Chargers | Joe Barksdale suffers injury    Sun Aug 28, 02:32 PM

San Diego Chargers OT Joe Barksdale (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Barksdale said he is fine and would have returned if it was the regular season after the game. This means the Chargers line that had so many injury issues last year dodged a bullet today.
