NFL.com is reporting Redskins HC Jay Gruden was "impressed" with RB Derrius Guice in his 2019 preseason debut. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Guice opened the game getting six of his 11 carries on the first six plays -- he finished with 11 carries and 44 yards rushing with a touchdown nullified by a penalty. While Guice is expected to enter 2019 behind Adrian Peterson in the pecking order, it shouldn't be long until the second-year back is on top of the Redskins' running back depth chart.

Keith Towbridge caught both of his targets for 19 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Towbridge has a tough path to playing time and no real receiving upside even if he gets on the field. His fantasy appeal is virtually non-existent.

The Buffalo Bills surrendered 20 points and 317 total yards in their preseason win over the Lions. The defense forced a fumble and recorded two sacks as well.

Fantasy Impact: The Bills figure to be a strong defensive unit in 2019, coming off of a strong 2018 campaign. They should be viewed inside the Top-12 units for this season, but will still have some tough matchups. If you are not a streamer for defenses, the Bills are probably outside of the target range, but should provide plenty of usable weeks with confidence. The Bills are not quite a "plug-and-play" DST for fantasy purposes.

Steven Hauschka converted his only field goal attempt (from 40+ yards) and both of his extra point attempts in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Hauschka figures to be an unreliable kicker, playing on an offense that will be sporadic in terms of scoring. Hauschka has also not shown signs of accuracy reliably in the preseason. He can be passed up in fantasy drafts without a problem.

Ray-Ray McCloud caught two of his four targets for 29 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: McCloud does not have a viable path to playing time in 2019 and has limited fantasy appeal, even as a dynasty league stash.

John Brown caught two of his three targets for 35 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has received the most praise coming out of camp, and is the best bet to be the one fantasy-viable receiver on an offense that will struggle to sustain more than one on a weekly basis. Brown is a nice upside pick at his cost, which is not far from the cost of his teammates Zay Jones and Robert Foster.

Isaiah McKenzie rushed once for a six-yard touchdown in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: McKenzie is unlikely to get much work on offense in 2019 and has little to no fantasy appeal. He has been a career special teams player thus far and that does not project to change.

Zay Jones caught three of his four targets for 46 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Jones returns as the target and receiving leader from 2018, and is a late-round pick in fantasy leagues. With the addition of John Brown, Jones may not be the de factor WR1 for a stretch of the season like 2018. This offense does not project to support more than one reliable fantasy receiver, so Jones is a risky pick given the glowing reports on John Brown thus far in camp. His cost is low enough that it doesn't matter, but Brown isn't much more expensive.

Duke Williams caught all three of his targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Williams does not figure to contribute in the regular season and thus has no fantasy football appeal for 2019.

LeSean McCoy rushed six times for 37 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: The wheels really fell off for McCoy quickly after becoming a Bill. McCoy's production has been muted by the offenses inability to move the ball and score, and even with a step forward in that area, McCoy's touch volume is likely to decreases significantly in 2019, even if he's on the final roster (which is not a guarantee). McCoy's fantasy value is minimal in 2019.

Frank Gore rushed eight times for 57 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Gore has been a low-upside option for fantasy for years now, and with a crowded backfield in Buffalo, that will surely continue. Gore has little to no appeal in fantasy football for 2019, as there's no clear path to significant and reliable touches.

Devin Singletary rushed once for a nine-yard touchdown in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Singletary has the easiest justification to lead the Buffalo backfield this season, but even with his draft capital and some impressive preseason plays, he will be in enough of a touch squeeze that his fantasy appeal is limited. Volatility is likely. However, he's the best Buffalo RB to throw a dart on, as it's possible they cut one of the veterans.

T.J. Yeldon rushed three times for no gain and caught three of his four targets for 51 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Yeldon has always been an underrated pass-catcher. He could have fantasy appeal in another situation, but with so many viable RBs in Buffalo, Yeldon will find it hard to get reliable touches on a weekly basis. His fantasy intrigue is limited to none for 2019 without a major roster shakeup at the position.

Josh Allen completed 3-of-6 pass attempts for 49 yards and rushed twice for 17 yards in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Allen should offer plenty of upside again with his legs in 2019. The question of whether he will take a step forward as a passer seems to be a yes so far this preseason. Allen is a risk-reward QB2 at this point, but if his passing continues to improve, he could be a strong fantasy option. His ADP is fair at this point.

Matt Barkley completed 12-of-14 pass attempts for 142 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' preseason win over the Lions. He rushed once for three yards as well.

Fantasy Impact: Barkley had one of his best performances yet, but still has no hope of starting this year unless Josh Allen misses any time. He has no appeal in fantasy football even then, really.

The Miami Dolphins limited the Jaguars to 7 points and 243 total yards in their preseason win. The Fins recorded one fumble recovery, one interception, and three sacks.

Fantasy Impact: Don't read too much into this performance. Preseason defensive outings mean little, as much of the output is determined by reserve players. The Dolphins project to be a low-end unit this year for fantasy purposes. They may be usable in a few weeks, but not much more.

Category: Game Recaps


Jason Sanders converted three field goal attempts (all from 40+ yards) and one of his two extra point tries in the Dolphins' preseason win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders has shown to be a solid kicker, but will likely be limited by the Dolphins' lackluster offensive production. He'll be a volatile option, and there are better options on better offenses.

Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber carried the ball three times for three yards in Friday night's preseason Week 3 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Barber was not targeted in the passing game. With Ronald Jones II's struggles, Barber is expected to open 2019 as the Buccaneers' RB1.

Nick O'Leary caught two of his three targets for 35 yards in the Dolphins' preseason win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: This line is likely to be about O'Leary's best receiving game of the season. He will be deployed primarily as a blocker and has virtually no fantasy appeal.
