Washington wide receiver Kelvin Harmon caught two passes for 37 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Harmon made catches of 16 and 21 yards and, more importantly, displayed some chemistry with quarterback Dwayne Haskins. that rapport with the rookie quarterback could make Harmon an intriguing late-round flier in deep leagues where he can be stashed in case of injuries, since Haskins is expected to take over as the starter in Washington at some point this season.

Washington wide receiver Josh Doctson caught one pass for 16 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Doctson disappointed in 2018 but is expected to be back as one of the team's starting wide receivers in 2019, along with Paul Richardson on the outside and Trey Quinn in the slot. He has upside in deeper leagues as a late-round flier, especially if he shows he has better rapport with rookie Dwayne Haskins, who is expected to take over as the starter at quarterback at some point this season.

Washington wide receiver Paul Richardson started and played a few series on Thursday but was not targeted in the team's preseason matchup against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson has been dealing with a quadriceps injury recently, so the mere fact that head coach Jay Gruden was comfortable putting him on the field is a good indication that the injury is behind him.

Washington wide receiver Trey Quinn did not play in the team's third preseason game against the Falcons as he continues to recover from a thumb injury.

Fantasy Impact: Quinn reportedly would have played if this were a regular season game, but Washington is being cautious with their young wideout. He is a popular target in later rounds of PPR leagues since he is likely to be the starting slot receiver to start the season.

Washington running back Chris Thompson rushed three times for 20 yards and caught two passes for four yards in Thursday's preseason matchup against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Thompson is the top pass-catching option at running back in Washington, but he could have some competition this season if Derrius Guice continues to impress and can stay healthy.

Washington running back Adrian Peterson didn't play in Thursday's preseason matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran running back has little to prove for Washington, so they are likely just resting him to make sure he is fresh and healthy for the regular season. He will have to share touches with Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson this season but is expected to start the season as the starter.

Washington running back Derrius Guice rushed 11 times for 44 yards and caught one pass for four yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Guice impressed in his first game action this preseason, with a long run of 12 yards. He is a popular bounce back candidate for fantasy experts this season after missing all of last season with an ACL injury, but he will still have to find away to get enough touches while sharing a backfield with Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson.

Washington quarterback Case Keenum went 9-for-14 on pass attempts for 101 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Keenum is expected to begin the season as the starter in Washington, but anyone drafting him should also prepare to take Dwayne Haskins as his handcuff at some point in the draft, as the latter is likely to take over as the starter at some point.

Washington rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins completed seven of 13 passes for 74 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: It still looks like Case Keenum might begin the season as the starter in Washington, but Haskins is the quarterback of the future and will likely take over at some point, probably sooner rather than later. He is worth a draft and stash in deeper leagues and leagues with large rosters on draft day.

Giants wide receiver Cody Latimer caught one of his four targets for nine yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Latimer has the inside track for the third wide receiver job in New York and could even see some looks with two wide receiver sets with Golden Tate suspended for the first four games. He has limited fantasy appeal in most standard leagues but could be worth a late round flyer in deeper leagues, at least for the first month of the season.

Giants running back Paul Perkins rushed three times for two yards and caught three passes for 27 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Perkins was listed as the third back on the team's first depth chart and is trying to hold off Rod Smith and Jonathan Hilliman for that spot.

Giants running back Rod Smith rushed five times for eight yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Smith is battling for the third running back spot with the Giants, behind Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman, but he is facing competition from Paul Perkins and Jonathan Hilliman, who have both flashed in the preseason.

Giants running back Jonathan Hilliman rushed six times for 14 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Hilliman had the second-most rushes among New York running backs on Thursday as he attempts to crack the final roster, but he has an uphill battle among a crowded running back room all vying for roster spots on the Giants behind Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman.

Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones went 9-for-11 for 141 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Pat Shurmur insisted on Friday that Eli Manning is still the starter in New York, but he has also praised Jones throughout training camp and seemed to leave open the possibility that Jones could take over the job at some point. Jones should be an early pick in dynasty leagues but is relegated to handcuff duty in most formats.

Giants running back Wayne Gallman rushed eight times for 31 yards and caught one of his two targets for 10 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Gallman got the start with Saquon Barkley not playing in the preseason, and he is the top handcuff in the event of a Barkley injury this season.

Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard did not suit up for the team's Thursday night preseason game against the Bengals as the team continues to rest him during his recovery from a thumb injury.

Fantasy Impact: Shepard is reportedly going to be fine to start the regular season, but the team is understandably taking the cautious approach with their young receiver, especially with fellow receiver Golden Tate suspended for the first four games of the regular season.

Giants running back Saquon Barkley did not play in the team's third preseason game against the Bengals on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Barkley is one of the best running backs in the NFL and is line for another season with a huge workload, so the Giants are resting him in the preseason to avoid injury and help reduce the wear and tear on their young running back.

Giants tight end Evan Engram caught his only target for nine yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: With the departure of Odell Beckham Jr. and the suspension of Golden Tate for the first four games of the season, Engram should have a big role in the Giants offense this season, especially through the first month.

Eagles running back Josh Adams rushed seven times for 18 yards and caught one pass for 18 yards in Thursday's weather-shortened preseason game against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Adams would have likely gotten more work if not for weather canceling much of the fourth quarter, so he will now have just one more game to try and earn a spot onto the roster in Philadelphia after leading the team in rushing last season.

Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor caught one pass for three yards in a brief cameo in Thursday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Agholor caught one of his two targets while playing a few series with many of the other Eagles starters on Thursday night. Despite Philadelphia being likely to play more 12 personnel (two tight ends on the field), Agholor should be in for a big role in a contract year with the Eagles this season.
