  Bills | Sammy Watkins shining in practice    Thu Aug 27, 09:46 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins has been able to beat CB Stephon Gilmore in practice on multiple occasions, and Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News called Watkins the August MVP.

Footballguys view: We know how good Watkins is, but we also know how bad the guys throwing him the ball are. While he has the ability to be a WR1 in fantasy, his situation - poor quarterbacks, heavy run focus - leave him as a WR2.

  Colts | Greg Toler week-to-week    Thu Aug 27, 08:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts CB Greg Toler (neck) is considered week-to-week because of a neck injury he suffered in the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: The Colts are hoping he can come back before the season really kicks off. Overall the team defense is just a No. 2 defense for fantasy purposes, and best paired with another unit.

  Falcons | Desmond Trufant likely to sit out    Thu Aug 27, 04:28 PM

Atlanta Falcons CB Desmond Trufant (shoulder) has participated in practice this week but likely will not play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: The Falcons defense won't change much without Trufant for this outing, and they would like him to be healthy for Week 1. This isn't a defense you want to roll out in fantasy anyway and we expect them to be underwhelming.

  Dolphins | Jamar Taylor out Thursday    Thu Aug 27, 11:13 AM

Miami Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor (quadriceps) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 27, and will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Taylor is slotted across from Brent Grimes, so they are likely being more cautious than anything else. This has the potential to be a solid secondary, but whomever is paired with Grimes will have their work cut out as they will see plenty of targets. We see Miami as a borderline starting team defense, or a very good unit to pair with another similar squad.

  Browns | Joe Haden misses practice    Mon Aug 24, 05:03 PM

Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 24, but could be able to play in the third preseason game if he is able to return to practice later in the week.

Footballguys view: The Browns are going to be cautious with their superstar corner. We think they may even hold Haden out of the dress rehearsal for the regular season--aka Week 3 of the preseason.

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans CB Jason McCourty (groin) is expected to miss a few games after undergoing groin surgery Monday, Aug. 24, according to sources.

Footballguys view: At this time, we could see McCourty miss at least the first week of the regular season. Keep that in mind when you're considering guys like Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson in Week 1 as the Buccaneers take on the Titans.

  Giants | Bennett Jackson out for season    Sun Aug 23, 04:02 PM

New York Giants S Bennett Jackson (knee) has suffered a torn ACL and will miss the entire season, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: The Giants are already down to street free agents at safety. Not that Jackson was a big part of their plans, but hopefully at some point the depletion at the position ends for them. Tony Romo and Dez Bryant will get to break in this secondary in Week 1.

  Steelers | Senquez Golson has surgery    Fri Aug 21, 12:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers CB Senquez Golson (shoulder) had surgery on his shoulder this week and will be out 'a while.'

Footballguys view: This makes the acquisition of Brandon Boykin even more crucial in hindsight. It's possible Golson is put on IR and this year is a total loss for the second-round pick.

  Browns | Several key CLE players sitting    Thu Aug 20, 07:38 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (hamstring), WRs Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) and Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) and CBs Joe Haden (hamstring) and Justin Gilbert (undisclosed) will not play Thursday, Aug. 20, against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Not a great list of injuries but it's just Week 2 of the preseason. We will worry if it's next week. Duke Johnson is the biggest worry as he is the best potential fantasy value in a shaky offense.

St. Louis Rams CB E.J. Gaines (foot) has been ruled out for the season following Lisfranc surgery on his foot Saturday, Aug. 15, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Footballguys view: Gaines was one of the team's top four corners and he was competing for a starting role. The strength of the Rams defense is their defensive line, so this isn't a crucial piece, but it leaves the Rams in a tough spot if they suffer any more cornerback injuries.
