  Dolphins | Marcus Thigpen in jeopardy    Wed Aug 27, 08:10 PM

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins WR Marcus Thigpen (hamstring) will play in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, against the St. Louis Rams. He hasn't done much at receiver in training camp and the preseason, but he is a valuable kick returner. The team is exploring other options, such as WRs Jarvis Landry and Damian Williams. If the team is comfortable with the alternatives, Thigpen's roster spot could be in jeopardy.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy receives praise    Wed Aug 27, 05:37 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy could be the leading rusher in the NFL in 2014, according to running backs coach Sam Gash. 'Without a doubt,' Gash said. 'He has the capability of being the leading rusher and maybe even combined yards if he catches a lot of balls. I absolutely do think that.

Footballguys view: Lacy is the safest RB on the board outside of the top 4 (Charles, McCoy, Peterson, Forte). He's a reasonable pick at #5 if none of them fall.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael injury update    Wed Aug 27, 03:10 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael (hamstring) is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Michael has gone from being a fashionable sleeper when Marshawn Lynch was holding out to being only worth a pick in the later rounds.

  Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno to top Lamar Miller?    Wed Aug 27, 11:45 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno is expected to have more carries than Lamar Miller, in the opinion of Omar Kelly.

Footballguys view: Kelly hasn't always been the most accurate Dolphins beat writer, but he has covered the team for a long time, and Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Press also said Moreno was a better fantasy pick than Lamar Miller. Miller's early summer buzz has died down, and Moreno might be a value in PPR leagues.

  Steelers | LeGarrette Blount unlikely to sit    Wed Aug 27, 09:30 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell unlikely to sit    Wed Aug 27, 09:27 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not be suspended or rendered inactive by the team following his preseason arrest. The collective bargaining agreement doesn't allow the team to suspend players for violations of the drug policy.

Footballguys view: It's another waiting game for the league to act in response to Bell's arrest. Judging by their pace as of late, it could be well into next year before the outcome of Bell's status with the league is known.

  Cowboys | May carry four RB's    Wed Aug 27, 05:51 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB's DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar are locks to make the 53-man roster, and RB's Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are battling for the third spot. However, executive vice president Stephen Jones did not rule out all four making the squad.

Footballguys view: Randle helps on special teams, while Williams is purely a running back. That the Cowboys could keep four backs is a sign of how much Randle has improved and how much Williams can provide as a back now. If Williams is released, he could get a call from another team soon.

  Dolphins | Marcus Thigpen hanging on    Wed Aug 27, 01:51 AM

Miami Dolphins WR Marcus Thigpen might make the 53-man roster, and his fate could hinge partly on his performance in the return game Thursday, Sept. 4. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor reportedly likes Thigpen.

Footballguys view: Thigpen's value as a WR/RB tweener and special teams contributor always helps at this time of year. With the Dolphins looking to turn up the tempo, more versatility among skill players is always a good thing.

  Dolphins | Tight battle for No. 3 RB job    Wed Aug 27, 01:48 AM

Miami Dolphins RBs Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas are locked in a heated battle for the No. 3 running back job. If Thomas loses out and is cut, the team would save $815,565 against the cap.

Footballguys view: Williams is the one to look at in deep dynasty leagues, and we would be surprised if Thomas somehow survived in Miami for another season.

  Dolphins | Top RB job still up for grabs    Wed Aug 27, 01:46 AM

Miami Dolphins RBs Lamar Miller and Knowshon Moreno split first-team snaps in practice the past two days, and head coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that the job is open. However, he was more effusive and expansive discussing Miller than Moreno this week. 'I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here,' Philbin said. 'He's had an excellent offseason and camp. I like everything he's done since April 21.'

Footballguys view: This backfield is about as close to 50-50 as any in the league. Moreno is clearly the superior back in passing situations, but Miller has a lot more juice in his legs. If the offensive line and new scheme come together quickly, both could have flex/RB2 value, but right now neither offers much upside in drafts.

  Browns | Dion Lewis in good shape    Wed Aug 27, 01:45 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis appears to be in good shape for a spot on the 53-man roster. Head coach Mike Pettine is on record saying Lewis held a slim lead for the third spot in the running back rotation.

Footballguys view: Lewis looked terrific in training camp last year before missing the season with a broken bone in his leg. He could be a surprise in the backfield if injuries get him on the field.

  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.

  Lions | Reggie Bush likely to sit    Tue Aug 26, 10:05 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush will probably sit out the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, as head coach Jim Caldwell plans to give his veterans some extra rest.

  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.

  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.

The New England Patriots placed RB Tyler Gaffney (undisclosed) and LB Cameron Gordon (undisclosed) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Aug. 26.

The Miami Dolphins placed DT A.J. Francis (knee), RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) and TE Arthur Lynch (back) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Gilleslee going on IR means that Daniel Thomas still has a pulse, but undrafted rookies Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa will also have something to say about that.

Miami Dolphins RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) is on the bubble of making the team. He isn't practicing Tuesday, Aug. 26, and won't play in the final game preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: That all but seals his fate. Yet another Jeff Ireland pick by the wayside.

  Dolphins | Daniel Thomas to play    Tue Aug 26, 10:14 AM

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas (hamstring) will make his preseason debut in the final game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Thomas will be playing for his Dolphins life. Undrafted rookie Damien Williams has been looking worthy of a roster spot, so Thomas will have to impress to keep his South Beach address.

The team also waived LS Charley Hughlett and WR Kenny Shaw, and DT David Carter (knee) was waived with a waived/injured designation.

Footballguys view: Barden has bounced around now after not living up to his size/athleticism combination and third-round pick status. If he can't catch on in Jacksonville's young and injured WR corps, then he is probably on his way out of the league for good.

OT Randall Harris and WR Jonathan Krause were waived with a waived/injured designation, and RB Edwin Baker was waived with an injury settlement designation.

Footballguys view: Baker had some decent moments last season, but Dion Lewis beat him out for the #3 running back job. His name could surface again in the future.

  Ravens | Bernard Pierce update    Mon Aug 25, 04:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (concussion) is dealing with a mild concussion, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Pierce was hurt in the first quarter of the team's preseason game against the Washington Redskins and did not practice Monday, Aug. 25. Pierce said via his Twitter account that he is feeling fine.

Footballguys view: New NFL policy says that players are not allowed to talk to the media as they go through the NFL's protocol for concussions. It will be interesting to see if that includes a player's personal Twitter account as well. Pierce is set to be the Ravens starter over the first two games of the year while Ray Rice is suspended.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson could play    Mon Aug 25, 04:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could receive some playing time in the final preseason game, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Footballguys view: Jackson could play, but how effective can he be? His best days are far behind him, and fantasy owners need to look at rookie Devonta Freeman. We could see Freeman take over in the backfield at some point this season if Jackson gets banged up (again) or just doesn't look good. Jackson is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

San Diego Chargers OT Nick Becton, FB Zach Boren, TE Jake Byrne, WR Brelan Chancellor, LB Adrian Hamilton, WR Micah Hatfield, OG Darryl Johnson, TE Ryan Otten, CB Lowell Rose, P Chase Tenpenny and RB Kerwynn Williams Monday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: Williams was the lone player fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues might have been monitoring. The speedy back hasn't been able to latch on for very long with multiple teams in his short career.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell status    Mon Aug 25, 03:41 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount could still face a suspension from the team, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Bell and Blount were recently charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

Footballguys view: The league will wait until the legal process is exhausted before suspended either player. The team could cut to the chase if they wanted in an effort to shorten (or eliminate) any league punishment. Any league suspension may not happen until next season.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson practicing    Mon Aug 25, 03:06 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: Jackson is near the end of his career. Fantasy owners should not be relying on him to contribute much this year. The Falcons defense is terrible, so the offense will have to play in many a shootout. We're expecting rookie RB Devonta Freeman to break out at some point this season.
