  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.

  Browns | Josh Gordon could sue NFL    Wed Aug 27, 03:00 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's representatives are considering a lawsuit against the NFL which could seek an injunction to put the suspension on hold until the legal process takes it course, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Put Gordon on your waiver wire speed dial, but don't draft him with the expectation that this will yield any games played this year.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met with owner/general manager Jerry Jones Tuesday, Aug. 26, to discuss his contract situation, according to sources. The two sides have talked about a contract extension for months but no deal has been reached at this point. The biggest obstacle in the talks appears to be the guaranteed money included in the deal.

  Eagles | Coach high on Zach Ertz    Wed Aug 27, 01:00 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is expected to be more involved in the passing game this season and has shown the confidence to be a solid pass catcher, according to tight ends coach Ted Williams. 'He's one of the best route-runners I've ever seen. He takes a lot of pride in that. He has a lot of confidence. He's hard to defeat, because he doesn't take defeat very well. He feels, 'You can't cover me,'' Williams said. Williams said the team can throw when they are in a two-tight end set and that Ertz can line up at tight end, in the slot or as an outside receiver.

Footballguys view: Ertz is looking like one of the best bets in the "upside TE" group you can get in the eighth round or later. He might have some low points when the game plan exploits other weaknesses, but a bet on Ertz is a bet on Chip Kelly to use his talent to its fullest extent, and those were winning bets last year.

  Browns | Josh Gordon suspension update    Wed Aug 27, 12:51 PM

  Browns | Josh Gordon's ban upheld    Wed Aug 27, 12:38 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be suspended for the 2014 season after his appeal of the suspension was denied, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Gordon can not return to the team for a year, and he has to be reinstated for that to happen. Jordan Cameron is caught between the upside of being the #1 receiver on his team and the downside of being double and triple-teamed on every play. Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin should be the top two wide receiver targets, and size/speed specimen Charles Johnson should make the team, intriguing deep dynasty owners.

  Panthers | Cam Newton will be ready    Wed Aug 27, 12:33 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (rib) said he fully expects to be ready to play Week 1.

Footballguys view: The Panthers may choose to call someone else's number at the goal line while Newton heals. He probably is not a good play with a brand new offensive line and set of receivers in week 1 at Tampa.

  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski likely to sit    Wed Aug 27, 12:07 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) continues to make progress in his rehab but likely will sit out the final preseason game. Gronkowski is looking to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski may well be a game-time decision for week 1, and perhaps even miss multiple games, but he took only three games to get back to old form last year after a more tumultuous offseason.

  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.

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.

  Chiefs | Frankie Hammond to start    Wed Aug 27, 08:25 AM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Frankie Hammond Jr. is likely to start in place of suspended WR Dwayne Bowe in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Hammond is a good pickup in deep dynasty to see if he hits in Week 1 to earn a larger role going forward in a very thin Chiefs wide receiver corps. The former Florida receiver has good straight line speed and quickness and could be an upgrade from Donnie Avery if Avery can't get over the dropsies that have plagued his career.

  Chiefs | May keep two kickers    Wed Aug 27, 06:06 AM

Because Kansas City Chiefs PK Ryan Succop and Cairo Santos have been equally effective in the preseason, a league source indicated the Chiefs may keep both kickers on the roster.

Footballguys view: This is another of many murky kicker situations to avoid in your draft.

  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 | Gator Hoskins proving himself    Wed Aug 27, 01:50 AM

Miami Dolphins TE Gator Hoskins has a good chance to make the 53-man roster either as the No. 4 tight end, or No. 3 if the team does not find an upgrade on waivers. If he doesn't stick, he is a candidate to be retained on the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Hoskins was touchdown machine at Marshall, but he was unheralded as a draft prospect and fell out of the draft. He would be the #3 behind Charles Clay and Dion Sims if he sticks.

  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 | Jordan Cameron back    Wed Aug 27, 01:45 AM

  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.

  Browns | Nate Burleson up in the air    Wed Aug 27, 01:44 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Nate Burleson (hamstring) is on the roster bubble, and he said Tuesday, Aug. 26, that he knows he cannot control anything but what happens on the field. 'If I was the boss of a company, you (only) look at the people who are at work,' Burleson said, 'not the people who want to be at work. So, there's a difference.'

  Saints | Marques Colston injured    Tue Aug 26, 11:56 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) came off the field during team drills Tuesday, Aug. 26, and talked with a trainer before watching the rest of practice from the sidelines.

Footballguys view: Until we hear something specifically negative about this development, we won't change Colston's outlook, but there are no outward signs that this is anything to worry about... yet. Colston was plagued by a foot issue for the first half of the season last year, but finished very strong after resting the injury for a week. Hopefully this is not a recurrence of that issue.

  Saints | Injury notes    Tue Aug 26, 11:48 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps), SS Rafael Bush (undisclosed), SS Marcus Ball (undisclosed), LB Khairi Fortt (undisclosed) and FB Erik Lorig (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26, and CB Trevin Wade (undisclosed) was limited.

Footballguys view: Stills has barely played this summer. His star is falling in redraft leagues and his absence is doing nothing to slow down the Brandin Cooks express and the resurgence of Marques Colston. Unless Still falls to the 11th-12th round or later, Cooks and Colston are much better picks at their ADP.

  Lions | Golden Tate expects big year    Tue Aug 26, 10:59 PM

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he believes his numbers can go up this year despite moving from the top option in Seattle to the No. 2 option in Detroit. 'I think my numbers can be way better in this offense naturally how it's set up,' Tate said. 'I was coming from, you gotta think I was in the toughest division with the 49ers, Rams and Cardinals, defensively, with a run-heavy offense and now I'm going to a pass-happy offense where I'm on the same team as the best player in the league, one of the best players in the league who is going to draw a lot of attention, a lot of double coverage, which is going to leave me with a lot of single coverage with a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks.'

Footballguys view: Tate certainly has a lot of upside compared to the potential his role gave him in Seattle, but it might be a stretch to see him as more than a WR3/Flex. If you believe in Tate, he is coming at a relatively inexpensive 7th-8th round price.

  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.
