  Falcons | Want power ground game    Tue Aug 26, 10:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers was stopped on a fourth-and-1 run during the team's third preseason game, and heading into the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, head coach Mike Smith said he wants to emphasize being able to run the ball effectively in obvious running situations.

Footballguys view: Rodgers is not the back for this situation. Jason Snelling is gone, and rookie Devonta Freeman is built more like Rodgers than a power back. Steven Jackson will be set up to get goal line carries and have the most weekly value as long as he is on the field.

  Saints | Mark Ingram dominating     Tue Aug 26, 08:44 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is averaging 7.1 yards per carry during the preseason and has remained on the field in passing situations.

Footballguys view: Ingram has had the same renewed vigor and burst in his runs that we saw in the second half of last season. If he can get the bulk of the goal line work, he could be a decent flex play, but he's in a three-head backfield no matter what, and we know how difficult those are to predict week to week.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant deal by Thursday?    Tue Aug 26, 08:18 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant could have a new contract before the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, sources in Dallas told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.

Footballguys view: This would be a coup for the Cowboys, but it will also probably be another ticket to cap hell and a contract that can be restructured repeatedly. Either way, the Cowboys choice of Bryant in the first round of the 2010 draft has been very wise in hindsight and we should congratulate Jerry Jones on that.

  Raiders | Two more waived    Tue Aug 26, 07:19 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Juron Criner and PK Kevin Goessling were placed on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Criner has flashed in practices and he is a big body with an even bigger catch radius, but he has failed to stand out in a Raiders wide receiver group that is in the bottom half of the league. He could get a call from another team that liked him in the 2012 draft.

  Patriots | No setbacks for Rob Gronkowski    Tue Aug 26, 06:30 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has not encountered any setbacks from the end of last week, and the acquisition of TE Timothy Wright is not a sign that the team is concerned about Gronkowski's health. The Patriots have wanted to remain cautious with Gronkowski's workload this preseason. Wright is a 'move' tight end, similar to the role free-agent TE Aaron Hernandez used to play with the team.

Footballguys view: Don't read anything into this move re: Gronkowski, and don't assume that the Pats will go back to two TE as their base set. Wright fills a gap in the Patriots personnel that they have been trying to plug, including flirting with Dustin Keller earlier this offseason, but like a lot of their passcatchers, he will be a role model.

  Cardinals | John Brown usage    Tue Aug 26, 06:17 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown may be used on 60 percent of the team's offensive snaps, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Brown has looked impressive all offseason and could very well end up being the team's third best wideout behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.

Footballguys view: TY Hilton was used on 57 percent as a rookie and put up a 50-861-7 stat line. Brown could easily elevate to bye/emergency/injury fill-in level value with a high weekly ceiling, and also make Carson Palmer an even better sleeper. He should be owned in all dynasty leagues.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will play    Tue Aug 26, 06:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will play in the team's final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Starters normally don't play in the final preseason game, perhaps indicating this could be part of the punishment the two face for being charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. Bell and Blount are still awaiting a decision on possible suspensions.

Footballguys view: It's an odd "punishment", but the bottom line here is that the duo is unlikely to miss any games by the hand of the Steelers, and the league office probably won't act until the legal case reaches its outcome.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders recovery    Tue Aug 26, 05:12 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) is still not at 100 percent in his recovery from an injured right quadriceps. Sanders takes breaks during practice to avoid aggravating the injury.

Footballguys view: Sanders fragility has been an issue during his career at Pittsburgh, and it appears that it is already an issue in Denver. Second-round pick Cody Latimer is poised to take the field if Sanders or Welker go down. Make sure to stash him away in all but the shortest bench leagues.

  Broncos | Wes Welker improving    Tue Aug 26, 05:09 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) made another positive step Tuesday, Aug. 26, in his recovery from another concussion, according to head coach John Fox. Welker has still not been ruled out for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Welker sounds like he has a good chance of being ready for Week 1, but he still suffered a concussion with a special helmet meant to minimize them. That he couldn't make it through the preseason without a head injury.
