  Lions | Detroit going no-huddle often    Thu Aug 25, 09:12 AM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford and the other Lions quarterbacks have run a no-huddle offense 62% of the time this preseason. The Lions ran a no-huddle offense just 7% of the time last season. According to ProFootballFocus, Stafford has completed all six of his passes for 108 yards when targeting WRs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones out of the no-huddle. He's 6-for-11 passing for 63 yards on the rest of his throws combined. Overall, Stafford has completed 70.6% of his passes this preseason.

  Jets | Christian Hackenberg has flaws in mechanics    Wed Aug 24, 11:10 PM

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg needs to tinker with his throwing mechanics, according to the team. The club would not get into specifics, but people who have studied the rookie believe he tends to over stride, causing his passes to sail. Hackenberg is currently fourth on the four-man depth chart.

Footballguys view: We have yet to see the rookie in the preseason, and last year's draft pick Bryce Petty hasn't been looking too bad as the third man with the Jets. Hackenberg was drafted to be the QB of the future (remember, the Jets passed on Paxton Lynch) but this is not a good way to start things off. We'll see if he can develop, but we've never had too much dynasty love for Hackenberg.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian returns to practice    Wed Aug 24, 07:50 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday, August 24, and took about 80% of his typical workload. He's expected to start his second straight preseason game Saturday, August 27.

Footballguys view: Siemian missed Tuesday's practice with a sore shoulder. He's back but he was still limited. The Broncos are expecting him to start against the Rams on Saturday night. If he doesn't throw another interception, then Siemian should have the inside track to be named the starting QB for the Broncos. However, expect rookie Paxton Lynch to start within the first month of the season if (when?) Siemian struggles.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater expects to play    Wed Aug 24, 05:16 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) said he expects to play in the preseason game against the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28. Bridgewater did not say much about his shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: We'll be likely to see Bridgewater limited by this shoulder injury -- no matter how minor. The team wants him to be near full strength for the start of the regular season.

  Jets | Geno Smith will be No. 2 QB Saturday    Wed Aug 24, 04:54 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith will be the No. 2 quarterback in the preseason game against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug 27, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said he will try to get QB Bryce Petty some playing time as the third quarterback during the game.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Smith can do anything with his opportunity. In the last preseason game, Smith went 6-of-13 for 47 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick set to debut Friday    Wed Aug 24, 01:13 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) is 'on track' to play against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Footballguys view: Well alright, it's time to see if Kaepernick can put himself back in the QB competition with Blaine Gabbert. If healthy, it seems like Kaepernick would be a good fit for the 49ers offense under Kelly. However, three offseason surgeries have held him back to this point. We'll see what Kaepernick can do in his 2016 preseason debut.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota shines in no-huddle offense    Wed Aug 24, 01:11 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota said the no-huddle offense is comfortable for him because of his experience operating it last season and during college. Mariota complete all six of his passing attempts, including a 21-yard touchdown pass to WR Harry Douglas during an 81-yard drive utilizing the no-huddle offense against the Carolina Panthers Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: This shouldn't be a surprise as Mariota ran a fast-paced offense in college at Oregon. He thrives when in that situation, but the second-year pro needs to show better timing when staying on rhythm within the standard offense. We love Mariota's upside, but for fantasy owners he's just a QB2 due to the Titans run-heavy philosophy.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz misses another practice    Wed Aug 24, 12:21 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (ribs) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries are painful to deal with and they're tricky to come back from without time. The Eagles are in no rush with Wentz, so he'll have plenty of time to fully heal. Wentz should sit the bench this year while Sam Bradford starts for the Eagles.

  Dolphins | Brandon Doughty could make cut    Wed Aug 24, 02:40 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Brandon Doughty has done a solid job in the preseason and could be hard to sneak through waivers, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. That, plus Matt Moore's (concussion) injury, could lead to Doughty getting a spot on the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: A six-year player at Western Kentucky, Doughty is a smart passer who can distribute the ball accurately on underneath routes. He doesn't have a strong arm, but Doughty throws with good anticipation and generally understands where to go with the ball based on the coverage he's facing. Doughty is a dynasty prospect we're watching in deeper leagues.

  Vikings | Shaun Hill back at practice    Wed Aug 24, 01:53 AM

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers fine with limited work    Tue Aug 23, 09:56 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers expects to play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 26, against the San Francisco 49ers, but how much has not yet been decided. 'Whatever (head coach Mike McCarthy) wants me to do,' Rodgers said. 'We haven't talked about play time yet. I'm not sure how long he wants me to play, but it'll be good to get out there and get some work with the guys.' He doesn't expect to play in the preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs next week.

Footballguys view: We don't need to see a ton of Rodgers. With WR Jordy Nelson healthy (and Mike McCarthy back to calling the plays), expect Rodgers to be his normal high-level QB1 for fantasy owners once again in 2016. Rodgers has a current ADP of QB2 (4.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | First-team offense to play past half    Tue Aug 23, 09:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and the rest of the first-team offense is expected to play at least one series into the third quarter in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell confirmed Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see the Seahawks first-team offense for that amount of time. It should prove quite productive for guys like Wilson, WRs Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. We'll also be interested to see if RB Christine Michael continues to look good this preseason.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater resumes throwing    Tue Aug 23, 06:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) threw during team drills Tuesday, Aug. 23, although he was apparently throwing shorter passes for the most part. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he didn't want to play Bridgewater last week for risk of Bridgewater getting hurt, adding that he would use caution if Bridgewater did have a shoulder issue.

Footballguys view: The Vikings will take it easy on their young franchise QB here. It's unclear if Bridgewater will play in Week 3 of the preseason.

  Bills | Sore shoulder for Cardale Jones    Tue Aug 23, 05:47 PM

Buffalo Bills rookie QB Cardale Jones (shoulder) is dealing with a sore shoulder, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: Jones may be put on the shelf for a bit while he deals with this. He's got a big arm but needs to work on the nuances of the position. Jones is a strong-armed dynasty prospect we're keeping an eye on.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian doesn't practice    Tue Aug 23, 04:27 PM

Denver Broncons QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, as he is nursing a sore shoulder. Siemian did, however, lead the Broncos in first-team running drills. The second-year quarterback is still expected to start Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: He's supposed to start, but we imagine he has to practice before then. So far the quarterback battle between Siemian and Mark Sanchez has been depressing to watch but it appears as if not only has Sanchez lost the starting gig, but perhaps dropped behind Paxton Lynch on the depth chart.This should all be resolved after the game, and no matter the result, the reality is that none of them should be on your roster as more than a QB3 or worse.

  Eagles | Acquired pick in question for Eagles?    Tue Aug 23, 02:16 PM

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez was acquired by Denver in exchange for a conditional pick with the Philadelphia Eagles. Sanchez must make Denver's final roster in order for the Eagles to keep that pick.

Footballguys view: If Sanchez can't win the starting job, what's the point of keeping him around? Trevor Siemian may win the starting job for the regular season as he's been pegged to start in the dress rehearsal for the regular season aka week three of the preseason. Rookie first-round pick Paxton Lynch may prove to be capable of being his backup, and that makes Sanchez expendable. Not only would Denver not have to surrender a pick, they would also get $3.5 million in salary cap relief from cutting the veteran.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers may play    Tue Aug 23, 11:16 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could play in the third preseason game, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: We don't need to see Rodgers play. It would be nice as the third week of the preseason is the dress rehearsal for the regular season, but it's not necessary because Rodgers has a ton of experience.

  Patriots | Tom Brady returns to practice    Tue Aug 23, 08:41 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, after two days of excused absences for non-injury related reasons.

  Jaguars | One added by Jaguars, one waived    Tue Aug 23, 08:41 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Max Wittek was waived Tuesday, Aug. 23, and free-agent RB Cameron Marshall (Dolphins) was signed to an undisclosed deal.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Arizona State in 2013, Marshall has bounced around a bit and even played for Winnipeg in the CFL. He's got good size for the position (5'11" 215 pounds), and Marshall is tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. He won't pull away from anyone in the open field, but Marshall is tough, has good vision and doesn't go down without a fight. We're watching him in super super deep dynasty leagues.

  Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill making progress    Tue Aug 23, 12:45 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said Monday, Aug. 22, that he is feeling more comfortable every day in the new offense, and he expects the offense will play a lot more fast as the regular season gets closer.

Footballguys view: Tannehill should be able to thrive in the Adam Gase offense. We like adding him as a QB2 in your fantasy leagues. This might be the year that Tannehill finally starts playing up to his potential.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch hasn't eluded pressure    Mon Aug 22, 11:11 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has done some good things in training camp and the preseason, throwing for 187 yards with two touchdowns while completing 21 of his 33 throws. However, he has also taken six sacks in his limited preseason game action.

Footballguys view: He can elude pressure, as he's one of the most athletic young passers in the league today. However, Lynch has held onto the ball too long when going through his progressions. He needs to speed up his processor and get rid of the ball quickly on simple reads. When the play breaks down, Lynch does a good job of thinking 'pass' while running to keep the play alive.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian has shoulder issue    Mon Aug 22, 11:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder), who is tentatively scheduled to start the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Los Angeles Rams, suffered a jammed shoulder in the most recent preseason game. However, he is expected to return to practice Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: Siemian jammed his shoulder while trying to make a tackle on an interception that was returned for a touchdown. This says all you need to know about Mark Sanchez and his standing with the Broncos. The banged up guy who threw a pick-six against the 49ers gets the starting nod for the game on Saturday.

  Broncos | Mark Sanchez falls behind in race    Mon Aug 22, 11:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez has completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts in the preseason, but too many negative plays have cost him the lead in the starting quarterback competition against QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.

Footballguys view: Fumbles and interceptions have plagued Sanchez throughout training camp and the preseason. We know you must be shocked (sarcasm). We think the QB competition in Denver comes down to Siemian vs Lynch now. There's a chance that Sanchez doesn't make the final roster.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger expects to play    Mon Aug 22, 06:56 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said he plans to play in the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 26.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick back at practice    Mon Aug 22, 03:42 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) participated in a full warmup practice Monday, Aug. 22. It was his first such participation since Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: The team has been watching Kaepernick throw on an incredibly limited basis while he's been out. It's the recovery process that needs work for Kaepernick. He'll be able to throw, but his soreness over the next few days will determine whether or not he can continue throwing. Blaine Gabbert is the clear-cut starter while Kaepernick is banged up.

  Broncos | Trevor Siemian to start again    Mon Aug 22, 03:34 PM

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian will start Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Siemian got the start in the second preseason game against the 49ers, but he was not impressive. He threw an interception that was returned for a TD and banged up his shoulder trying to make a tackle on that play. Even with a sore shoulder and a pick-six to his resume, Kubiak wants to see more of him with the starters. This is bad news for Mark Sanchez, and the veteran may fall to third-string on the depth chart behind rookie first-round pick Paxton Lynch.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz day to day    Mon Aug 22, 10:43 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (ribs) remains day to day and will not throw Monday, Aug. 22. He threw Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries are known to be painful, and the recovery time varies from player to player. Wentz is clearly the future of this team at the QB position, but the rookie should sit all year behind Sam Bradford.

  Colts | Andrew Luck throwing underneath more    Mon Aug 22, 08:46 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck is throwing more underneath passes to get the ball out quicker and allow his receivers to use their speed after the catch. 'They've worked really hard on that clock in (Luck's) head,' coach Chuck Pagano said. 'You can sit and wait and wait and wait and hold that thing too long. I think our guys up front, that starting unit and the couple guys that came in did a really nice job of giving him some time. He is not turning down a profit so if things aren't there down the field, then go ahead and hit your check-down. We've got some guys that can make some plays if we can get them the ball in space.'

Footballguys view: The Colts want to keep Luck healthy all season as he's the key to their Super Bowl window. Having him get rid of the ball makes a ton of sense for many reasons. He'll get out of the way of the pass rush by utilizing quick/short passes. The Colts also have a trio of fine WRs who can all use their assets to make plays after the catch. We're not expecting a lot from their rushing attack, so using as much of Luck and those WRs makes the most sense.

  Rams | Case Keenum likely to open as starter    Mon Aug 22, 08:16 AM

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams QB Case Keenum is likely to start Week 1 for the team over QB Jared Goff. Keenum has delivered three touchdowns in four drives this preseason.

Footballguys view: That's not a shock based on Keenum's (and Goff's) play. Goff is the future, but he clearly needs more time to develop. Keenum is a seasoned pro who can be capable as a starter while Goff gets up to speed. The Rams are built on a solid defense and superstar RB Todd Gurley. Keenum needs only to play it safe and not turn the ball over to help this team consistently win in 2016.

  Jets | NYJ may keep four QBs on roster    Mon Aug 22, 02:51 AM

The New York Jets are leaning toward keeping four quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, with QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty, Geno Smith and Christian Hackenberg making the cut.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is the starter for now, but his future with the team after this season is not a given. Who knows what the future holds for Smith, but he's likely in his final season with the Jets. Petty is a work-in-progress as a pro passer -- and that's putting in nicely. Hackenberg was added to be the future starter, but it's been some time since he's looked consistently good on the football field. Good luck Jets fans, it will be interesting to see how this develops.

  49ers | Vance McDonald emerging as weapon    Mon Aug 22, 12:01 AM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald has caught five passes for 92 yards from QB Blaine Gabbert through two preseason games.

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners looking to wait on TE. The Chip Kelly offense regularly features the TE as the first read after the belly option with the RB. A QB like Blaine Gabbert should use McDonald early and often as a security blanket when looking to move the chains through the air. Catching 75 passes and finishing as a top-10 fantasy TE is not out of the question for McDonald.

  Lions | Jake Rudock pushing for backup job    Sun Aug 21, 10:56 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock and QB Dan Orlovsky will be judged on their total body of work, and 'the best player' will win the backup quarterback job, head coach Jim Caldwell said.

Footballguys view: This isn't a great backup situation. Rudock is tough and played with a ton of moxie in college at Michigan (and Iowa), but we don't know of any fantasy leagues that give points for moxie. From a talent standpoint, the rookie QB doesn't have a strong arm and needs better anticipation when going through his reads. However, he is accurate on short-to-intermediate throws and what scouts call a 'rhythm' passer. We'll be monitoring his progress -- but only in the deepest dynasty leagues.

  Broncos | Paxton Lynch could start    Sun Aug 21, 02:53 PM

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch has not been ruled out for the starting job, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. 'He's always been in the mix,' Kubiak said. 'Everybody is in competition to play.'

Footballguys view: This is more a sign of how Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian have not seized the job than a sign that Lynch has made leaps and bounds of improvement this summer. Sanchez is still probably the best bet to start, but only a slight favorite with the third preseason game likely deciding the starter unless Sanchez craters. Either way, whoever starts will be on a short leash.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco (knee) has missed the first two preseason games but is expected to play in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions Saturday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: All signs point to Flacco being ready to go for the season opener against the short-handed Bills defense. He should be a good streamer with the likely high volume of passes in Marc Trestman offense.

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler completed 12 of his 19 pass attempts for 124 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Osweiler has a revitalized offense with new weapons on the outside and in the slot, and a rejuvenated Jaelen Strong able to play at both spots. He's on the fringe of fantasy relevance, but if JJ Watt misses time early, the Texans could return to their high volume passing ways from the first half of 2015.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck made his first start since November, completing all eight of his pass attempts for 71 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Luck looked better than he did through his struggles last year, but it is the preseason. He moved more naturally in the pocket and appeared to be more in tune. The whole Colts offense will represent value in drafts if Luck can return to his 2014 form.

Footballguys view: The offensive line did a good job keeping him upright. Everything is looking up for the Jaguars heading into the third week of the preseason. Bortles is in our low QB1 ranks, although an improved Jags team could result in more balance on offense.

Footballguys view: Winston struggled against the new look Jaguars defense. He'll start with Atlanta in the regular season, but then a brutal stretch against the Cardinals, Rams, Broncos, and Panthers will test Winston's development in his second year.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota went 9-for-10 for 104 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, Aug. 20. He added 13 yards on the ground before giving way to QB Matt Cassel early in the second quarter.

Footballguys view: Mariota has been highly efficient this summer, but it doesn't appear that he'll be piloting a high volume pass offense or get a lot of opportunities as a runner by design. He's a QBBC/streamer option because of the nature of his offense.
