  Redskins | Robert Griffin not cleared to play    Fri Aug 28, 07:09 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has not been cleared to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and will be reevaluated in one to two weeks.

Footballguys view: This keeps getting odder and odder. Griffin is already down to a QB3 for us and we really dislike the whole situation in Washington. We're not surprised he's concussed though, because we have eyes and watched him get hammered for a quarter and a half behind a terrible offensive line.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel to miss rest of preseason    Fri Aug 28, 05:21 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will miss the final two preseason games because of his sore elbow.

Footballguys view: This is more caution than anything else, though this injury seems to have been lingering. He wasn't in line to start, but this could hold him back from filling in early this season if need be. Josh McCown will start the season, and we'd avoid him in fantasy.

  Eagles | Sam Bradford will play    Fri Aug 28, 09:19 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, but head coach Chip Kelly wouldn't say how much Bradford would play.

Footballguys view: They'll want to keep 'Glass Joe' healthy, so the answer might be 'two plays' depending on how the offensive line performs. We don't totally trust his ability to stay healthy as well as have been generally underwhelmed by what we see when he stays on the field, so right now we have him as a QB2.

  Colts | Frank Gore praises Andrew Luck    Thu Aug 27, 09:28 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore called QB Andrew Luck a 'football god' that runs meetings like a coach. 'He sees everything. He sees the big picture of everything. He lets me know when [there's] something I don't see. He's just different. How he's in the huddle, off the field, in the meetings, he runs it. He runs the show, even in the off-season, he ran it.'

Footballguys view: It's good that they're getting along so well, since he's going to be a key piece in their charge for the Super Bowl. We see Gore as getting plenty of carries, and he should be a solid RB2 this coming season. Don't believe this is the year he collapses, he still has plenty in the tank and will be in a fantastic offense to keep defenses from stacking the box against him.

  Jets | Josh Johnson signs with NYJ    Thu Aug 27, 09:03 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Bengals) has signed with the New York Jets, the team announced Thursday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: It's not totally clear what the team is doing, save perhaps being desperate for a person to throw into the meat grinder in the last game or so. He has no fantasy value.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett slept in    Thu Aug 27, 07:52 PM

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett missed practice Thursday, Aug. 27, because he overslept. Mallett was present for meetings later on, however. He will also be at practice Friday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: We understand it. Madden 16 came out earlier this week (and Gears of War Ultimate Edition), so some late-night gaming might have been in order. Brian Hoyer has already been named the starter in Houston, and that gamer Mallett is the backup.

  Jets | Two roster moves made    Thu Aug 27, 07:39 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Bengals) signed with the New York Jets Thursday, Aug. 29. QB Jake Heaps was subsequently waived.

Footballguys view: Johnson has an interesting skill set for the Chan Gailey system. He's bounced around the league, and is likely just a camp arm for the Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the team's starter with Geno Smith (jaw) on the mend. Behind Fitzpatrick is rookie Bryce Petty.

  Packers | GB starters will sit Saturday    Thu Aug 27, 07:13 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and the rest of Green Bay's starters will not play Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to QB Matt Blanchard.

Footballguys view: Why risk any further (devastating) injury? The Packers have already lost Jordy Nelson for the season in a meaningless preseason game, and they don't need to get any other starters hurt.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin cleared    Thu Aug 27, 07:04 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has been cleared to play Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Griffin is in a make-or-break season with Washington. He needs to stay healthy, impress and start playing up to the potential he showed as a rookie back in 2012. We're not counting on it, and fantasy owners should only consider Griffin a QB3.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles likes offense    Thu Aug 27, 06:34 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said this year's offense is the best offense he's been a part of in his three years, including college. 'I've enjoyed learning it. I've enjoyed trying to master it, and that's what I'll continue to do,' Bortles said. Bortles appreciates how offensive coordinator Greg Olson has been able to adapt to different offensive players.

Footballguys view: Bortles will be even more excited if this offensive line can protect him better. Last year as a rookie, Bortles was sacked a league-high 55 times. We'll see if the addition of right tackle Jeremy Parnell can help.

  Packers | Scott Tolzien expected to miss game    Thu Aug 27, 05:52 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Scott Tolzien (concussion) is not expected to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, because of a concussion.

Footballguys view: Tolzien is the primary backup behind Aaron Rodgers this year. He'll go through the concussion protocol before he's back on the field. In the meantime, rookie Brett Hundley (dynasty alert!) will get a chance to showcase his talent.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett not at practice    Thu Aug 27, 04:07 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett (personal) was not at practice Thursday, Aug. 27, due to a personal issue, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Could it be that he's upset he got 'Hoyer'd' when Brian Hoyer was named the starter? He certainly seemed upset by the decision, and frankly we were baffled as well. It's easy to read into things without many facts--after all, Mallett was at Wednesday's practice after he lost the job and O'Brien hints he'll be back Friday. Still it's an intriguing idea that he was so upset he walked off. We'll be waiting to see what Hard Knocks has to say about it. We would avoid this quarterback situation if at all possible. Hoyer is aggressively mediocre, and no better than a QB3. Right now Mallett isn't even that though at least he has the upside of the unknown. This isn't a great situation though and Fantasy GMs are best looking elsewhere.

  Bills | EJ Manuel starting preseason game    Thu Aug 27, 01:56 PM

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel will start the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: What's the saying: if you have three quarterbacks, you have none. Most beat writers had crossed Manuel off the list as potential starters, though perhaps that was premature. Still, head coach Rex Ryan says all three quarterbacks (Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor being the other two) will play with the 1s, so maybe we won't see much of Manuel. This is a mess and you should avoid the quarterback situation on this team at all costs.

  Browns | Pat Devlin signs with Cleveland    Thu Aug 27, 10:30 AM

Free-agent QB Pat Devlin (Dolphins) signed with the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Aug. 27. OL Ryan Seymour was waived.

Footballguys view: He joins Thad Lewis, Johnny Manziel and Josh McCown in the mess that is the Browns' quarterback group. If anything, this might spell doom for Lewis, though who knows what they're thinking in Cleveland these days. Really there's no quarterback here you can rely on in fantasy, though Manziel has intriguing upside. He isn't starting though, so overall, avoid this group.

  Jets | Josh Johnson working out with Jets    Thu Aug 27, 10:18 AM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Bengals) is working out for the New York Jets Thursday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: We're not totally seeing what the point is here, with five quarterbacks on the roster right now, including the injured Geno Smith. Johnson is an odd fit behind Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick, rookie Bryce Petty and recently signed parachute Matt Flynn. Assume they are just kicking tires here, especially considering how disappointing Johnson has been in other attempts. Nobody here is a safe player to have on your fantasy roster, with Fitzpatrick only weighing in as a QB3 and an emergency start.

  Browns | Pat Devlin to work out Thursday    Wed Aug 26, 11:23 PM

Free-agent QB Pat Devlin (Bears) will work out for the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Aug. 27, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's an odd kick the tires move, though it's not like the team has a lot of great quarterbacks right now. Still, even if they sign him, this doesn't change anything - avoid this quarterback situation.

  Browns | Interested in Connor Cook    Wed Aug 26, 07:26 PM

Michigan State QB Connor Cook is already drawing interest from the Cleveland Browns, according to Cook's high school coach. Cook is expected to enter the NFL Draft next year.

Footballguys view: We should see Cook come off the board in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. His skill set is similar to that of Carson Palmer (Cardinals) because of his accuracy from the pocket. He can quickly read a defense and isn't afraid to challenge the edges.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning wants better chemistry    Wed Aug 26, 07:17 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he'd like the offense to improve its chemistry and move the ball better once they start playing more together. Specifically, Manning said he wants the Broncos to convert more on third downs and find the end zone.

Footballguys view: The Broncos first-team offense had trouble moving the ball against the Texans last week. This week against the 49ers, we should see Manning and company have no problem getting into the end zone. In the third preseason game, we could see Manning play into the third quarter.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel's injury not serious    Wed Aug 26, 06:22 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) has no structural damage in his injured elbow. Head coach Mike Pettine said Manziel has been dealing with the sore elbow since high school.

Footballguys view: It's not a serious injury, but it's bothered him since high school? Manziel is going to begin the season as a backup quarterback behind Josh McCown. If McCown struggles, then Manziel might get a chance to start.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers may be limited Saturday    Wed Aug 26, 05:45 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could see limited snaps during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and there is a chance he could sit out the entire game.

Footballguys view: After the Jordy Nelson injury, we're not surprised by this news. The Packers are going to be incredibly cautious with their superstar quarterback.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel probably won't play    Wed Aug 26, 05:05 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) isn't expected to play versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday, Aug. 29, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: This elbow problem has come up a couple of times for Manziel this month. Manziel is still dealing with elbow soreness and the Browns are taking a cautious approach.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota wants to improve    Wed Aug 26, 04:34 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota and the rest of the offense want to improve on third-down conversions and finishing drives Friday, Aug. 28, against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mariota said the Titans could have done a lot better on third downs in their last game against the St. Louis Rams. Mariota added that he wants the team to build on not turning the ball over, getting first downs, playing with rhythm and building chemistry.

Footballguys view: Mariota has looked good so far in the preseason. Fantasy owners in re-draft leagues won't be rushing out to get him, but dynasty owners are certainly interested in his progress as a passer.

  Steelers | Bruce Gradkowski lands on IR    Tue Aug 25, 11:26 PM

Updating a previous report, the Pittsburgh Steelers placed QB Bruce Gradkowski (finger) on the reserve/injured list Tuesday, Aug. 25, ending his 2015 season. The team signed QB Michael Vick to work as the backup to QB Ben Roethlisberger.

Footballguys view: Gradkowski hasn't thrown a meaningful pass - or heck, an un-meaningful one either - in close to three years. Chances are this is his last round-up.

  Steelers | Michael Vick signs    Tue Aug 25, 07:40 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Michael Vick (Jets) signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, Aug. 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Steelers need veteran depth behind Ben Roethlisberger, and Vick gives them that. QB Bruce Gradkowski (finger) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin won't be benched    Tue Aug 25, 05:21 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) practiced fully Tuesday, Aug. 25, and didn't experience any setbacks from the concussion he's been recovering from. Head coach Jay Gruden said he hasn't thought of using backup quarterbacks. Gruden also said he hasn't considered benching Griffin because of his lack of effectiveness.

Footballguys view: They'll roll him out there and if last week is any indication, leave him there behind one of the worst performing offensive lines in the NFL. Hopefully they pull Griffin before he gets hurt, but even if he survives the rest of the preseason, we still don't like his prospects in what seems like a toxic situation--especially with his lack of progress in improving his game. We see him as a QB3 with upside, but that upside might not emerge in Washington with Jay Gruden.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston has ankle sprain    Tue Aug 25, 04:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie QB Jameis Winston (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle Monday, Aug. 24, against the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Lovie Smith still expects him to start Week 3 of the preseason against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: The injury isn't serious, though Winston's ability appears to be! Hopefully they take it easy on him as they know he's the starter and the step down to Mike Glennon seems steep at this point. We like Winston's upside and adore him in Dynasty (where he is a borderline QB1 longterm) but it's too soon to throw him on your roster for redraft, where we see him as a QB3 (with upside) at this point.

  Bills | EJ Manuel wants to stay in Buffalo    Tue Aug 25, 02:57 PM

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said he loves being with the Bills and wants to stay with the team, despite seemingly being the third quarterback on the depth chart. Manuel has rolled well with the punches, however, saying he's taking what is given to him and just doing his best. He is also looking forward to Buffalo's third preseason game this weekend. 'I don't know how it's going to play out as far as the game yet, but for me, whatever reps I do get, I just try to take advantage of them like I did the past two weeks,' Manuel said.

  Bengals | Josh Johnson released    Tue Aug 25, 02:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Josh Johnson was released Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Johnson has bounced around the league, but he's never stopped in one place for that long. He's athletic, but he lacks accuracy as a passer. His NFL career might be over, but some think he could head up to Canada to keep playing.

  Bills | Buffalo to use rotation at QB?    Tue Aug 25, 02:31 PM

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel may each be rotated in with the starting unit Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Joe Buscaglia of WGR Sports Radio 550. All three quarterbacks have received first-team repetitions the last two practices.

Footballguys view: The Texans have already made their decision about a starting quarterback, and now it's Buffalo's turn to figure out who is the top guy. Cassel has the experience advantage, but we like Taylor out of this poor group. Taylor has incredible athleticism and a rocket arm. He needs to improve his accuracy and decision making as a passer if he wants to play up to his potential.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger playing well    Tue Aug 25, 01:14 PM

Tennessee Titans backup QB Zach Mettenberger has performed at a high level in training camp and the preseason, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt laughed off a suggestion that the Titans should trade Mettenberger before the season starts. Mettenberger has gone 15-for-20 for 220 yards and two touchdowns with one interception so far in preseason for a passer rating of 122.9.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger is not the quarterback of the future for the Titans as some thought he would be. He's the backup behind number-two overall pick Marcus Mariota.

  Falcons | Atlanta working out Rex Grossman    Tue Aug 25, 01:00 PM

Updating a previous item, the Atlanta Falcons are working out free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) Tuesday, Aug. 25. Backup QBs T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree have failed to do much during training camp.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is a supporter of Grossman from their time working together with the Washington Redskins, Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns. The seasoned veteran knows the Shanahan offense like the back of his hand.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed eight of his 13 pass attempts for 90 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 24, against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also ran once for a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Winston has what it takes to play at this level. First, he's a confident quarterback who sees the field with positive results. Second, he's got the arm talent to make every throw required in the NFL. Finally, Winston can avoid pressure and keep his eyes downfield to make plays. If needed, Winston can also take off and run. We've compared him to a raw version of Ben Roethlisberger because of his size, arm, and athletic ability.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed six of his 13 pass attempts for 46 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 24, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: That's not a good day for Dalton. Fantasy owners are looking at him as a QB3 this season, and that sounds about right.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers had great chemistry with Jordy Nelson    Mon Aug 24, 07:12 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' passer rating when targeting WR Jordy Nelson in the last four seasons has been 150.2, 130.3, 111.6 and 128.2, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Numbers aren't necessary to prove the point--just watch Rodgers when he's targeting Nelson and you see a confident and accurate passer taking advantage of defenses. We'll see how Rodgers builds chemistry with Nelson's replacement, second-year pro Davante Adams.

  Panthers | Cam Newton has confidence in Devin Funchess    Mon Aug 24, 06:37 PM

Carolina Panthers rookie QB Cam Newton said he has full confidence in rookie WR Devin Funchess stepping into the starting wide receiver role for the Panthers with WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) out for the season. Funchess sat out the team's second preseason game with a tight hamstring, but he's expected to play against the New England Patriots Friday, Aug. 28. 'He's a competitor,' Newton said of the former Michigan star. 'He's a guy that wants to be great. We talk often. I'm pretty much a person that he can trust and that I know I can trust when the game comes on the line. We just need to get him to 100%.'

Footballguys view: That's great and all, but we don't share Newton's confidence. Funchess looked lost on the field sometimes in college, and he doesn't attack the ball in the air with authority the way that Kelvin Benjamin does. Over the last three years at Michigan, Funchess was credited with a whopping 20 drops. Good luck with that.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford played solidly in his first action with the Eagles. WR Jordan Matthews said Bradford was great in the pocket. Bradford himself said it felt good to get back on the field and to take his first hit.

Footballguys view: Bradford has the accuracy to be good in the Chip Kelly offense. Fantasy owners who add Bradford as a QB2 are only worried about his lack of durability. Bradford's current ADP reflects those concerns. He's coming off the board at QB15 (10.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Broncos | Denver to use more three-WR sets?    Mon Aug 24, 03:56 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning and company may use more three-wide receiver sets than expected this season, according to ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold.

Footballguys view: The three-wide receiver set is certainly not a staple of the Gary Kubiak offense. The veteran coach may be making a concession to help his veteran quarterback Peyton Manning. This news is music to the ears of Cody Latimer's fantasy owners. We love Latimer's natural talent and amazing upside. He makes for a perfect late-round pick in every draft.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning can't feel fingertips    Mon Aug 24, 02:56 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (neck) has been able to play even though he has not been able to feel his fingertips because of multiple neck surgeries.

Footballguys view: That was an odd revelation in Peter King's piece on Monday. Manning said he has been told by doctors that the feeling may never come back. His completion percentage is 2.8% higher than it was before he had the surgeries. We like the veteran as a top-10 (not top-5) fantasy quarterback this year.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (elbow) will keep his current throwing motion even though the team believes that is what is causing the soreness in his elbow. Manziel did not throw during practice Monday, Aug. 24, so he could rest his elbow.

Footballguys view: Manziel has been bothered by elbow soreness earlier in camp. It's interesting to think the team will not try to alter his throwing motion in an effort to keep him from feeling soreness. Expect him to have a few days off due to this ailment.
