Ross Travis caught one pass on two targets for six yards as the Colts lost to the Bears in preseason action on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Travis missed the entire 2018 season after suffering a torn ACL in the final week of the preseason but is healthy this year and is fighting for a roster spot. He is currently behind Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle, and Mo Alie-Cox on the depth chart and will need a strong showing in the final preseason game.

Krishawn Hogan catches four passes on five targets for 35 yards on Saturday as the Colts lost to the Bears by a 27-17 score.

Fantasy Impact: Hogan appeared in two games for the Colts in 2017, but he spent most of the 2018 campaign on either injured reserve or the practice squad. He has had a solid preseason but may get caught in a numbers game as he tries to make the final roster and may end up back on the practice squad.

Phillip Walker was 6-of-13 passing for 65 yards with an interception and also lost a fumble in Saturday's preseason loss to Chicago.

Fantasy Impact: Walker has a chance to win the backup QB job with Andrew Luck retiring and Jacoby Brissett moving into the starting role. But the 24-year-old has struggled this preseason and looks like he has fallen behind Chad Kelley on the depth chart. Walker will need a big game in the last preseason matchup to have a chance to make the final roster.

Zach Pascal caught one pass for 13 yards on Saturday in preseason action as the Colts lost to the Bears by a 27-17 score.

Fantasy Impact: Pascal is trying to make the team and is currently on the bubble. His work on special teams and as a kick returner will help but if he does make the final roster he will not see enough targets to be worth owning in fantasy.

Saints TE Dan Arnold caught 5-of-6 targets for 83 yards in Saturday night's preseason win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: While Jared Cook has been limited this preseason, Arnold has been playing well and seems to be getting better by the game. He should have a roster spot locked up but at worst he will make the practice squad.

Saints WR Ted Ginn did not catch his only target in Saturday night's preseason win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Ginn is expected to open 2019 as the Saints' WR3 behind Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith. He has minimal fantasy value while the players ahead of him are healthy.

Mo Alie-Cox caught one pass on his only target for 36 yards on Saturday in preseason action as the Colts lost to the Bears by a 27-17 score.

Fantasy Impact: Alie-Cox is more known for his blocking than pass-catching abilities looks like he will make the team as the third TE behind Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle. Unless there is an injury, Alie-Cox will not be worth drafting in fantasy leagues.

Travis Benjamin was not targeted in the Chargers’ 23-15 preseason loss to the Seahawks Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Benjamin enters the season as the WR3 for the Chargers and should provide sporadic usable performances in deep leagues this season.

Aca'Cedric Ware rushed 11 times for 25 yards and caught both his targets for six more yards as the Colts lost to the Bears in preseason action on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Ware has been seeing plenty of action in the preseason but has not done much with the opportunity. Ware is an undrafted rookie out of USC and the chances of him making the team do not look good and is probably destined for the practice squad.

Michael Badgley hit his only field goal attempt in the Chargers’ 23-15 preseason loss to the Seahawks Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Badgley enters the season as a solid starting kicker for fantasy in an elite offense.

The Los Angeles Chargers D/ST allowed 367 yards and had one sack in a 23-15 preseason loss to Seattle Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The Chargers struggled against Seattle’s starting unit Saturday. Look for this talented group to bounce back and be a strong fantasy option this season.

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith did not catch his only target in Saturday night's preseason win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Smith will enter 2019 as the Saints' WR2 and is expected to take a slight leap in his second year as a pro. He is worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts but his ceiling may be capped while Michael Thomas is healthy.

Justin Jackson rushed five times for 13 yards and caught his lone target for four yards in the Chargers’ 23-15 preseason loss to the Seahawks Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson was bottled up Saturday. He enters the season in a timeshare with Austin Ekeler during Melvin Gordon’s holdout. Ekeler should see most of the passing volume, but Jackson presents a great late value in drafts.

Chad Kelly completed 16 of 21 passes for 209 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Bears. He added 34 rushing yards on two carries.

Fantasy Impact: With the retirement of Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett moving into the starting role it opens up the backup job at QB for the Colts. Kelly who is a former seventh-round pick is battling Phillip Walker and looks to be in the lead to take the role for the team.

Saints WR Michael Thomas caught both of his targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Saturday night's preseason win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas looked outstanding in his limited action, hooking up with Drew Brees for a score. He will be one of the top wideouts off the board in fantasy drafts.

Philip Rivers did not play in the Chargers’ 23-15 preseason loss to the Seahawks Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Rivers enters the season as a solid low-ceiling QB1/2. The veteran was rested Saturday.

Deon Cain caught three of four targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Cain has had a great camp and preseason and looks like he has won a spot on the roster to start the season. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on the 23-year-old receiver as he could move up the depth chart and pick up a big role during the year.

Austin Ekeler rushed four times for 11yards and had two receptions for 22 yards in the Chargers’ 23-15 preseason loss to the Seahawks Saturday. He was targeted three times.

Fantasy Impact: Ekeler couldn’t find much room to run Saturday but still saw opportunities in the passing game. He will provide solid flex value splitting time with Just Jackson during Melvin Gordon’s holdout. Ekeler has added appeal in PPR formats.

Saints TE Jared Cook did not play in Saturday night's preseason win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Cook, who has played in a limited capacity this preseason, did not play against the Jets. If it is injury-related, it is not expected to be serious. He should still be good to go for the regular-season opener.

Hunter Henry had two receptions for 13 yards and one fumble recovery in the Chargers’ 23-15 preseason loss to the Seahawks Saturday. He was targeted twice.

Fantasy Impact: Henry enters the season healthy and has the talent and opportunity to provide a top-5 season at TE this year.
