  Texans | Keshawn Martin to return kicks    Fri Aug 29, 11:42 PM

Houston Texans WR Keshawn Martin will return kickoffs to start the season, making him a lock for the 53-man roster. His roster spot was in question during the spring, but according to head coach Bill O'Brien, Martin was the most improved wide receiver in training camp and the preseason.

The Jacksonville Jaguars waived C Mike Brewster, OG Drew Nowak, DE Gerald Rivers, QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Chad Bumphis, OT Cody Booth, DT DeAndre Coleman, DT Ricky Havili-Heimuli, S Craig Loston, QB Stephen Morris, P Kasey Redfern, OG Tyler Shatley, TE D.J. Tialavea and LB Marcus Whitfield Friday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Morris might be able to stick around on the practice squad. He's a good athlete with a strong arm. His mechanics are nearly flawless when the pocket is clean, but his game falls apart under pressure.

The Buffalo Bills cut LB Xavius Boyd, DT Landon Cohen, TE Dominique Jones, CB Kamaal McIlwain, CB Sam Miller, P Brian Moorman, QB Jordan Palmer, FB Evan Rodriguez, WR Naaman Roosevelt and OL Jared Wheeler Friday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: None of these should come as a surprise. Without Palmer, the team will need to add a veteran backup. They currently only have Jeff Tuel as the primary backup behind E.J. Manuel.

  Eagles | Arrelious Benn to IR    Fri Aug 29, 03:24 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Arrelious Benn (back) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Benn is a talented receiver, but his career has been set back by injury and inconsistency. One has to wonder how he's going to stick around in the NFL. Dynasty owners should have moved on a while ago.

  Bears | Santonio Holmes making case for spot    Fri Aug 29, 01:46 PM

Chicago Bears WR Santonio Holmes displayed good burst and explosion on a 32-yard touchdown catch in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, as he tries to make the team's final roster. Holmes also had a 30-yard punt return that showed off his athleticism. 'You see the explosion in him,' head coach Marc Trestman said. 'He caught a short throw, turned and ran, separated from the defense. That's a good sign.' Holmes' catch was his only haul of the game.

Footballguys view: The Bears are looking for a WR3 behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. With second-year pro Marquess Wilson sidelined by a collarbone injury, Holmes could be that guy. We'll see if he's done enough during his limited time with the Bears to make a positive impression.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant update    Fri Aug 29, 11:31 AM

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (shoulder) suffered a relatively minor separated shoulder in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28. He hopes to practice next week after taking a few days off.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Steelers here. We're intrigued by the rookie in dynasty leagues. He'll have limited value in redraft leagues this year unless injuries strike on the depth chart above him.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson solid    Fri Aug 29, 10:53 AM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson had three catches for 57 yards and a touchdown in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Dobson's return was a triumphant one....but don't get too far ahead of yourself. We're still talking about a player who has inconsistent hands and concentration. Beating up on third-string defenders in the final preseason game of the year isn't enough to budge Dobson off his current ADP for us. Dobson is coming off the board at WR60 (13.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins injury update    Fri Aug 29, 08:44 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) suffered an injury to his ribs in the same area as his previous one, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Bills should have been more cautious here. Rib injuries can linger and they come with a lot of pain and discomfort. Check back to see if Watkins is able to practice before Week 1 of the regular season.

  Steelers | Martavis Bryant injured    Fri Aug 29, 08:35 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant (shoulder) suffered a sprained right AC joint in his shoulder in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: We like the rookie in dynasty leagues, but he has little value in redraft leagues. Bryant is a big receiver who can swiftly track the ball down the field. He could be the big target that QB Ben Roethlisberger has been missing since they heyday with Plaxico Burress.

  Jaguars | Cecil Shorts update    Thu Aug 28, 10:02 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) said he will be ready for the team's season opener.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should approach this situation with caution. Shorts has talent and fantasy value, but we need to see if this hamstring injury is going to heal or linger to start the year. His current ADP is WR51 (11.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins out    Thu Aug 28, 07:59 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) has now been ruled out for the remainder of tonight's game with a rib injury after originally being ruled as questionable.

Footballguys view: As expected. Now he just needs to get healthy. We're still drafting him as a WR4 and hoping he overcomes the quarterback.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins update    Thu Aug 28, 07:42 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is questionable to return with a rib injury.

Footballguys view: He's not coming back in a meaningless preseason game. Just hope he is healthy come Week 1. We see him as a WR4 but the whole "EJ Manuel quarterback" thing is a concern and holds his upside down.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins leaves early    Thu Aug 28, 07:25 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) left the team's final preseason game with an apparent injury. There was no indication if Watkins aggravated his ribs.

Footballguys view: We'll have to see how reports shape up but we can only hope he is healthy for Week 1. His QB makes him a WR4 at best though he could be much better if he had a better guy throwing the ball.

  Jaguars | Tandon Doss injured    Thu Aug 28, 07:06 PM

Jacksonvill Jaguars WR Tandon Doss (ankle) is questionable to return with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Doss is another guy who is hurt in a wide receiver corps filled with them. He's got minimal fantasy value and isn't worth a roster spot.

  NFL | Four become free agents    Thu Aug 28, 06:58 PM

Baltimore Ravens WR Jace Davis, Dallas Cowboys WR Tim Benford, Kansas City Chiefs C Ben Gottschalk and Seattle Seahawks OG Greg Van Roten cleared waivers and became free agents Thursday, Aug. 28.


  Browns | Nate Burleson active    Thu Aug 28, 06:43 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Nate Burleson (hamstring) is active and could play in the team's final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: A good sign that he might be available come Week 1, which will be a big help for Brian Hoyer. Burleson has lost most of the last two years to injury but the three seasons before that he was catching 62% of his passes and he could be a favorite target of Hoyer's if he stays healthy. Consider him a WR6 with upside, albeit minimal due to the rest of the team and a potential run heavy offense.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to play?    Thu Aug 28, 05:59 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) could play in the team's final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28, though it likely wouldn't be for long.

Footballguys view: And it wasn't as he was forced out again due to the ribs. They need to get him healthy by next week where he starts a season where we believe he will be a decent WR4 held back in part by his quarterback.

  Giants | Several expected not to play    Thu Aug 28, 05:28 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring), WR Trindon Holliday (hamstring), CB Prince Amukamara (groin), OT Charles Brown (shoulder), OT James Brewer (back), OG Geoff Schwartz (toe), OG Brandon Mosley (back) and DT Markus Kuhn are not expected to play Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Well aside from Beckham who the Giants would really love to get on the field this decade, none of this is a concern. Perhaps it would matter more if Eli Manning had a lot more snaps so he and ODBjr could get more in sync with him, but that's not the case. Beckham has little to no value right now - maybe you can argue he has WR6 value with upside if he ever gets on the field - and isn't more than a "hail mary" pick late in your draft, if you can't find better value with more of a chance of paying off.

  Jets | Jalen Saunders was restrained    Thu Aug 28, 01:11 PM

New York Jets WR Jalen Saunders (illness) had to be physically restrained by three police officers after suffering a seizure in his car two weeks ago.

Footballguys view: We're finally getting a little clarity on just what happened to the Jets rookie receiver. We can only hope the doctors have figured out why it happened and will take steps to keep it from happening again. As bad as Jacoby Ford was returning kicks and punts, Saunders should walk right into a job doing special teams.

  Browns | Josh Gordon can't play in CFL    Thu Aug 28, 12:52 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is not eligible to play in the CFL while serving a year-long suspension in the NFL, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: There are two areas here that apply. First he needs permission from the team, who won't grant it. Second, the CFL does have rules that can prevent a player from heading north while on suspension. As the Browns aren't going to risk their investment on a stint in Canada, it's a non-issue.

  Seahawks | Bryan Walters will be returner    Thu Aug 28, 11:50 AM

Seattle Seahawks WR Bryan Walters (ribs) will be available to be a kick and punt returner in the final preseason game, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: The more you can do, the more they ask you to do and for a fringe player on the bubble, you just say "yes" and shag punts. Walters speed can help improve the field position but really only has value in fantasy leagues which give you points for that.

  Patriots | Aaron Dobson to debut    Thu Aug 28, 10:40 AM

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) will make his preseason debut Thursday, Aug. 28, in the final preseason game.

Footballguys view: It took a long time, but Dobson is getting back on the field. Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell are the roadblocks to a starting job for Dobson and they are more speed bumps than full on roadblocks. That said, he's well behind at this point and still has Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski in the pecking order ahead of him. That limits the fantasy value of any No. 3 receiver in this offense. Dobson (or Thompkins/LaFell) are really no more than bench depth.

  Packers | Jarrett Boykin emerging    Thu Aug 28, 10:35 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'He's physical, his toughness, he's relentless,' McCarthy said. 'I think he's exceptional at the top of his route. You see his strength and balance to separate from a DB.' Boykin's hold on the No. 3 receiver spot will likely limit WR Davante Adams as the fourth receiver.

Footballguys view: As we've said before, while we see Boykin as no better than a WR5 right now, he could be far more productive given that the Packers spread the ball out and Boykin was so valuable last season for them. Boykin is also a guy to watch in Dynasty since Randall Cobb is a free agent next year and Green Bay isn't shy about letting receivers who want a lot of money leave the franchise.

  Packers | Jarrett Boykin arrives    Thu Aug 28, 10:07 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'He's physical, his toughness, he's relentless,' McCarthy said. 'I think he's exceptional at the top of his route. You see his strength and balance to separate from a DB.' Boykin's hold on the No. 3 receiver spot will likely limit WR Davante Adams as the fourth receiver.

Footballguys view: Boykin flashed some ability when Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb were banged up last season, giving the Packers a little more incentive to ditch James Jones. While we see Boykin as no better than a WR5 right now, if there is an injury he could be far more productive. Consider also that with no clear weapon at tight end, the Packers might go to Boykin more often overall in trying to get the defense clear of Cobb and Nelson. Boykin is a guy to watch, especially in Dynasty since Cobb is a free agent next year and the Packers have a history of letting guys go if the pricepoint is too high.

  Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey in good shape    Thu Aug 28, 01:01 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey appears to be in good shape for a roster spot, as the team will likely keep six receivers on the 53-man roster. WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore, Martavis Bryant, Justin Brown and Heyward-Bey are expected to comprise the group.

Footballguys view: DHB has always looked good and always played with aggressive mediocrity. There is some room for him to step up, but we don't expect it anymore this time than the last dozen or so times we were told "this is the year." Looking at that list of receivers, it's hard to imagine him cracking the lineup on a regular basis barring massive injuries.

  Ravens | Michael Campanaro in mix    Thu Aug 28, 12:49 AM

Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Campanaro remains in the mix for a spot on the 53-man roster. If the team elects to keep just five receivers, he would be competing against WRs Kamar Aiken, Jeremy Butler and Deonte Thompson for a spot. Campanaro could help himself in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Campanaro is unlikely to have any fantasy value this season, despite a great vertical leaping ability and good speed. But we like you to know everything.

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.
