New Reality No.110: NFL Preseason Week 1 Takeaways - Footballguys

Distilling Week 1 of the 2018 NFL preseason down into key dynasty information

Football has finally arrived and the takeaways from Week 1 of the preseason are vast for dynasty owners. Here are the highlights by skill position:


Lamar Jackson: The rookie showed improvement from the Hall of Fame game last week. Jackson was impressive on a down-the-seam pass to a contested Chris Moore and eluding multiple defenders en route to a red zone rushing touchdown. While Jackson is still set to 'simmer' behind Joe Flacco, he has made strides from game to game thus far.

Josh Allen: The up-and-down play was present for Allen, but the biggest takeaway was Nathan Peterman and A.J. McCarron both playing ahead of Allen and the rookie did not see time until the second half.

Chad Kelly: The former Round 7 pick saw his NFL debut with positive results. Kelly exhibited a live arm, mobility, and a highlight moment of a touchdown throw with a defender bearing down on him in the pocket. On an ancillary note, Paxton Lynch continues to struggle as a passer with accuracy and working through progressions. Kelly is making his case for the QB2 spot in Denver.

Matt Cassel: While not an exciting fantasy option for upside, Cassel appears to have the QB2 role in Detroit locked down. Jake Rudock, like Paxton Lynch, had one of the forgettable performances of the week at the position and did not build on the modest promise he showed last preseason.
