  Buccaneers | Ronald Jones still has work to do    Fri Aug 23, 04:56 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones (knee) 'has had some busts in blitz pickup, and he's still working on his route running,' according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

Footballguys view: Jones is only going to be a small contributor to the backfield at this point, although he is at least over his knee issue from the previous preseason game. The Tampa backfield does not look promising for fantasy, but Peyton Barber is the most valuable member at this point.

Footballguys view: Jaron Brown will start Week 1 against the Bengals unless DK Metcalf has a very speedy recovery from knee surgery. UDFAs John Ursua and Jazz Ferguson could also get playing time early in the season with fourth-round pick Gary Jennings on the roster bubble.

Footballguys view: This should make you very uncertain about Luck Week 1 and maybe beyond. Draft all Colts with caution at this point, and target Brissett late in 2QB/Superflex leagues.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol after sustaining the injury in a preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Reed has a long concussion history so this is terrible news. The team has Jeremy Sprinkle and Vernon Davis, but this should take him off of our late round tight end target list and could increase the target share for Trey Quinn.

  Eagles | J.J. Arcega-Whiteside making impression    Fri Aug 23, 12:54 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside earned the praise of head coach Doug Pederson on Thursday, Aug. 22, after catching eight of his nine targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. 'One of the things (about)J.J. is (he is) a hard worker,' Pederson said. 'You see it in practice every day. He comes to work every day. He wants to get better. He wants to be taught. He wants to learn. He has a great mentor in Alshon (Jeffery) in front of him, so he's learning from that. Being able to talk to Josh or talk to Carson (Wentz) during the week, talk about routes, talk about coverage, and that's where he really takes it over to the field, and I think that's what you saw tonight with him and his ability to make plays. The red zone we know he can be explosive. He was able to do that really not only there, but out in the field.'

  Ravens | Marquise Brown buoyed by debut    Fri Aug 23, 12:10 PM

Baltimore Ravens Marquise Brown (foot) made his pro debut Thursday, Aug. 22, in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, catching all three of his targets for 17 yards, losing four yards o an end-around and catching a two-point conversion pass that was later called back. 'Man, it felt amazing,' he said. 'It's the best day so far. Just being out here -- from pregame to being in the game and being with the team -- it was just a lot of fun.'

Footballguys view: Brown is still not ready to make big contributions yet, leaving the door open for fellow rookie Miles Boykin to make a big early impact. We'll keep Brown on our waiver wire watch list.

  Panthers | Cam Newton has mid-foot sprain    Fri Aug 23, 11:40 AM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (foot) was diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain, and the team is cautiously optimistic about his status for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Newton will face Aaron Donald Week 1 so the team will need to be careful. He should drop on boards to about QB10 with the tightly packed group from 4-10 at the position. There's no need to take on injury risk with similar high ceiling quarterbacks on the board around Newton.

Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen completed 5 of 7 passes for 59 yards and ran four times for 23 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Rosen is making a push to start Week 1 vs. Baltimore, but behind this offensive line, his 2019 might look a lot like his 2018.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook four of his seven targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in a 22-7 loss to the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Westbrook looks like Nick Foles favorite target and he's certainly worth targeting ahead of any other Jaguars receiver. He is the team's best route runner and should be their leading passcatcher.

  Eagles | Big line for JJ Arcega-Whiteside    Thu Aug 22, 11:23 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside caught eight of his nine targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in a 26-15 preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Arcega-Whiteside is making a bid for a big red zone role even if all of the Eagles top three receivers stay healthy. If they don't he could be a waiver wire wonder in a good offense with a bold passer. File his name away.
