Kenny Stills (WR - HOU)
Sat, Aug 31
Player Note on Kenny Stills (WR - HOU)
Stills has reportedly been traded to the Texans. Unless there is a significant injury to Will Fuller, Keke Coutee, or both, then Stills will have little fantasy impact this year. If room opens up in the receiving group, he'll be a deep-league draft pick or free agent add, but nothing more.
Jaron Brown (WR - SEA)
Sat, Aug 31
Player Note on Jaron Brown (WR - SEA)
Brown, once thought to be a sneaky early-season play with D.K. Metcalf battling injury, is reportedly going to be cut as a cap casualty of the Jadeveon Clowney trade. To the extent you were targeting him as a late-round selection, pass on him for someone else.
Devin Singletary (RB - BUF)
Sat, Aug 31
Player Note on Devin Singletary (RB - BUF)
With LeSean McCoy cut on Saturday, the doors are open for Singletary to have a much larger role than expected. It's still a crowded backfield in Buffalo, but Singletary has the talent to become an impact back this year, particularly in the second half of the season.
LeSean McCoy (RB - KC)
Sat, Aug 31
Player Note on LeSean McCoy (RB - KC)
McCoy was released by the Bills on Saturday. The surprise move strongly increases the value of Devin Singletary (and Frank Gore for that matter). McCoy will likely latch on somewhere so you can still draft him with one of your late picks. But don't expect much from him, particularly early on.
Jacoby Brissett (QB - IND)
Sun, Aug 25
Player Note on Jacoby Brissett (QB - IND)
Brissett will take over as the Colts' starting quarterback with Andrew Luck suddenly retiring. He has plenty of arm strength but he's shown more than enough for fantasy owners to know that he's not a reliable option. He should be considered a borderline QB2, as he'll be running a solid offensive system, but no more than that.
Eric Ebron (TE - IND)
Sun, Aug 25
Player Note on Eric Ebron (TE - IND)
The touchdown regression never came for Ebron last season, as he scored 13 of them, along with 750 yards receiving. Even if you thought that he could avoid regression for another year, Andrew Luck's retirement drastically changes the landscape. Ebron now falls out of the TE1 conversation, and is no more than a mid-range TE2.
T.Y. Hilton (WR - IND)
Sun, Aug 25
Player Note on T.Y. Hilton (WR - IND)
Hilton's outlook changes drastically with the news that Andrew Luck is retiring from the NFL. We've seen what happens to Hilton without Luck and it isn't pretty - he finished with just 966 yards, his only year below 1,000. It's a better offensive system now so Hilton should likely retain WR3 production with Jacoby Brissett, but drop him down your draft board quickly.
Duke Johnson (RB - HOU)
Sun, Aug 25
Player Note on Duke Johnson (RB - HOU)
Johnson's value has changed drastically this preseason, first with the move to the Texans and now with Lamar Miller's (likely) torn ACL. Houston will surely add running back depth at this point, but Johnson is big enough to handle an every-down workload. Particularly in PPR or 0.5 PPR formats, he should be drafted as a rock solid RB2.
Marlon Mack (RB - IND)
Sun, Aug 25
Player Note on Marlon Mack (RB - IND)
Andrew Luck's sudden retirement changes the equation for Mack, but probably not as much as you'd expect. He'll still run behind an elite offensive line and excellent system. Yes, Jacoby Brissett as the quarterback marks a huge downgrade for the entire offense. But the Colts may try to lean on Mack a bit more than they otherwise would have, and he may able to make up a downgrade in efficiency with an uptick in touches. Drop Mack a few spots, but still consider him an RB2.
Lamar Miller (RB - HOU)
Sun, Aug 25
Player Note on Lamar Miller (RB - HOU)
Miller is believed to have suffered a torn ACL in Saturday's preseason game. If you're drafting before the news is confirmed, the reports of his injury sound credible enough to avoid him entirely. Duke Johnson should immediately vault up your draft board into RB2 range.
Kenny Stills (WR - HOU)

Alex Smith (QB - WAS) - Alex Smith traded to the Washington Redkins
Thu, Feb 1
I actually expect the fantasy impact of the trade to be minimal. Smith showed how well he can run an offense when the reins are taken off, and Jay Gruden's system isn't all that dissimilar from what the Chiefs ran this year. For the Redskins pass-catchers, the trade doesn't move the needle much. As for Kansas City, there's perhaps a slight bump to Tyreek Hill, as Patrick Mahomes' strong arm and aggressiveness should lead to bigger plays. But overall, fantasy values don't change much.
Rob Gronkowski (TE - FA) - Rob Gronkowski to play in Super Bowl LII?
Thu, Feb 1
Unlike with most injuries, once a player is cleared to play after a concussion, there should be no lingering effects. If Gronkowski does play, as expected, then he should be a full-go with no limitations. The Eagles aren't great at stopping opposing tight ends, so I'd expect a monster game from Gronkowski in the Super Bowl.
