  Patriots | Brandon Bolden may not play    Fri Aug 22, 05:35 PM

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (undisclosed) does not appear like he will play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Bolden is no lock to make the final roster. With the emergence of James White, Bolden is trying to stay on the team as the fourth running back. His absence is not going to help his cause.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski not playing    Fri Aug 22, 04:42 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will not play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners would have a bit more confidence if Gronk plays this week, but in the end this was expected by most. The team is saving Gronk for the start of the regular season. He should still be the second or third TE off the board in your fantasy draft.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans in altercation    Fri Aug 22, 04:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was allegedly involved in a fight outside a nightclub Saturday, Aug. 16. The alleged incident was caught on video, but no arrests were made.

Footballguys view: Evans is unlikely to see much trouble from this incident. If no arrests were made, then the league is probably not going to take any action.

  Jets | Chris Johnson impressing    Fri Aug 22, 02:42 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson is impressing the defense he practices against every day. "Oh yeah, he still has it," linebacker David Harris said. "We noticed it the first day when we were in Cortland. He's still the fastest guy on the field. He's still got a lot of juice in those legs."

Footballguys view: That's nice and all, but we're still not overly confident about Johnson's upside this year. He will split time in the Jets backfield with Chris Ivory, and it could be Ivory that gets most of the goal line work. Johnson's current ADP is RB26 (6.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Giants | Daniel Fells could start    Fri Aug 22, 02:26 PM

New York Giants TE Daniel Fells could win the team's starting job with a strong showing in their preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, in the opinion of Jordan Raanan of the Star Ledger.

Footballguys view: That's great and all, but fantasy owners shouldn't care. There's no fantasy relevant tight end on the Giants roster. We're intrigued by the new Ben McAdoo system, but there's plenty of better late-round fantasy tight ends to choose from.

  Cowboys | Gavin Escobar update    Fri Aug 22, 01:11 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (shoulder) was able to practice some this week, and is hoping to play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23. Escobar is in extra padding to protect the injury. 'You can only contribute if you're on the field, so that's what I've got to do,' said Escobar.

Footballguys view: Escobar is going to compete as the TE2 behind Jason Witten once again this year. He doesn't have much fantasy value unless Witten is out...and even then his ability isn't top notch.

  Cowboys | Henry Melton to miss game    Fri Aug 22, 01:03 PM

  Browns | Johnny Manziel has support    Fri Aug 22, 12:37 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has support from veteran Browns receiver Nate Burleson, who said, 'I'll just say this, Johnny's still the man.' Burleson also noted that he is pleased with head coach Mike Pettine's decision to start QB Brian Hoyer.

Footballguys view: We're sure the rookie has support from other teammates, so this news comes as no surprise. Manziel may begin the season as a backup, but he's going to be the starter eventually. Likely around the halfway point of the season.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel fined    Fri Aug 22, 11:56 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 for giving the Washington Redskins sideline in the middle finger in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Don't flip the bird in an NFL game Johnny Football. This is what he does, and nobody should be surprised by this incident. We'll see if the youngster can learn from this mistake.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders to play Sat.?    Fri Aug 22, 11:16 AM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) had a full practice Thursday, Aug. 21, and he could play in the team's third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: Sanders played in Week 1 of the preseason against the Seattle Seahawks. He didn't record a catch, and looking back on that decision it was probably a mistake. Sanders has WR2 upside, but his current ADP (WR30, 6.10) in 12-team PPR leagues make him a value pick.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater at No. 2    Fri Aug 22, 10:33 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is entrenched as the No. 2 quarterback, and the team is confident with him there. QB Christian Ponder could be traded if he performs well enough.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater will be starting soon enough in Minnesota. We're excited about Bridgewater's upside because he's smart and accurate. When Bridgewater is the starter, we could see a bump for the entire passing game. Matt Cassel could begin the season as the starter, but we doubt he holds onto the job for the whole year.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill may go with ones    Fri Aug 22, 10:29 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill could see some carries with the first-team offense in the third preseason game Sunday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on the rookie from LSU. He runs with a nice blend of power and agility. Hill also has deceptive speed, and he can break off big runs on unsuspecting defenses. Gio Bernard is the lead back in Cincy, but Hill could get about 125 carries (and some goal-line work) in 2014.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel could play later    Fri Aug 22, 10:17 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could play with QB Brian Hoyer in a two-quarterback system later in the season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said a package for Manziel is on the table. Pettine said he didn't anticipate a platoon early in the season. Pettine also made it clear that Hoyer is on a week-to-week trial.

Footballguys view: This Browns QB situation is still a mess. Neither quarterback looked good against Washington last Monday night. Hoyer is the starter, but Manziel could take over after the first month of the season. Using a QBBC during a game doesn't work, and we've got plenty of examples through NFL history (Craig Morton/Roger Staubach, Tommy Maddox/Shawn Moore, etc).
