Latest Player Updates

Phillip Lindsay rushed six times for 32 yards in the Broncos' 24-23 preseason loss to the Bears Saturday night. He also returned one kickoff for 12 yards and two punts for 20 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Lindsay provided the Broncos with another solid performance against Seattle. His ability to run, catch, and return kicks has quickly established him as the RB3 in Denver.

Virgil Green had two receptions for 25 yards in the Chargers' 24-14 preseason win over the Seahawks Saturday. He was targeted twice.

Fantasy Impact: Green is primarily a blocking tight end, but did post a pair of catches versus Seattle. He is not a worthwhile fantasy option.

Austin Ekeler (calf) did not play in the Chargers' 24-14 preseason win over the Seahawks Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Ekeler missed Saturday's game with a sore calf. The injury is nothing serious and he could have played had it been a regular season game. Ekeler holds value as the backup to Melvin Gordon in a prolific Los Angeles offense.

Tyrell Williams posted one reception for 21 yards on one target in the Chargers' 24-14 preseason win over the Seahawks Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Williams is trying to hold off Mike Williams to be the WR2 in a potent Charger attack. He is a value with a current ADP in the 14th round.

Travis Benjamin rushed once for four yards and was not targeted in the passing game in the Chargers' 24-14 preseason win over the Seahawks Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: The speedy veteran is currently listed as the WR4 and primary punt returner for the Chargers. His versatility will earn him playing time, but there are better fantasy options this season.

Fantasy Impact: Watkins injury is another tough blow to a Charger’s defense that has been decimated by them. Watkins was performing well before going down and had a real chance to make the 53-man roster. If there is a silver lining, the late summer tear should allow Watkins to return at close to full health for the 2019 campaign. He will be 26 at that time.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught 2-of-4 targets for 49 yards Saturday night versus the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Evans is the clear-cut WR1 on the Buccaneers despite all the hype surrounding Chris Godwin. And as a result of Jameis Winston's suspension, plus, the down year in 2017, Evans' ADP has fallen to a spot at which he is a value in the early third round. Once touted a top-five fantasy wideout, Evans has the talent to bounce back with our without Winston under center.

Marquise Goodwin hauled in three catches for 61 yards in San Francisco's second preseason game on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: The highlight was a beautiful 40-yard catch on a deep ball thrown by Garoppolo. Goodwin has been his favorite target all summer, which could lead to a big fantasy season for the receiver. Goodwin is underrated at his current ADP right now.

Jeremy McNichols rushed 10 times for 28 yards and caught three passes for 19 yards as the 49ers lost to the Texans in preseason Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: McNichols has been running with the starters with both Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida sidelined. However, he didn't do much in this one to make a statement for more playing time when everyone is healthy. McNichols isn't really a fantasy option as long as McKinnon and Breida are good to go.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 10-of-12 passes for 136 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in San Francisco's second preseason game on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: The highlight was a beautiful deep ball thrown to Marquise Goodwin, who has been Garoppolo's favorite target all summer. "Jimmy G" is an excellent late round quarterback pick in fantasy drafts this year.

C.J. Prosise ran three times for 12 yards and caught six passes for 35 yards in Seattle's second preseason game on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Prosise's six targets in the passing game led the team. He came down with everything that was thrown to him in this one and should have a role as a passing down specialist on the team. However, Prosise's snaps will be limited when both Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny are healthy.

Category: Game Recaps


Chris Carson rushed nine times for 34 yards and caught one pass for six yards in Seattle's Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Carson's longest rush went for 12 yards, but the biggest takeaway from his performance was a lost fumble at the goal line. With Rashaad Penny banged up, the fumble likely won't cost Carson any first team reps. There are reports that he will open the season as Seattle's "bell cow".

Russell Wilson completed 12-of-21 passes for 193 yards as the Seahawks lost to the Chargers 24-14 in preseason Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Wilson added one carry for four yards. The former Super Bowl champion had his deep ball working early in this one, which led to the big yardage total in just one half of football. Wilson should be one of the first five quarterbacks taken in fantasy drafts this summer.

Sean Mannion completed 10-of-16 passes for 84 scoreless yards in Los Angeles' second preseason game versus the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: None of the starters played for the Rams in this one. Mannion's highlight was a 47-yard catch by KhaDarel Hodge. Mannion likely won't have much fantasy value even in the event of a Jared Goff injury.

Rams rookie running back John Kelly rushed 18 times for 56 yards and a touchdown in Friday night's game versus the Raiders, adding two catches for four more yards.

Fantasy Impact: The sixth round rookie just continues to impress when giving opportunities. Kelly got a big workload in this one with none of the Rams starters seeing the field. He would need a Todd Gurley injury to carry meaningful fantasy value, but Kelly looks in line to be the backup in Los Angeles this season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 11 yards and a touchdown Saturday night versus the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Godwin is picking up more and more steam entering 2018. He's showing his budding rapport with Jameis Winston which was evident on his touchdown grab. And while Godwin was already deemed a starter by Dirk Koetter, the presence of DeSean Jackson keeps that a question mark for me. Either way, Godwin is primed for a breakout year in 2018. Despite his depth chart designation, I'm targeting him over Jackson in all formats.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones II rushed for two yards on four carries and failed to catch his lone target Saturday night against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Jones isn't off to a great start in his career. And although it is only the preseason, it's still not a good look. Despite scoring a touchdown in his preseason debut, he has more carries than yards. It's looking more and more like Peyton Barber is poised to open the year as the RB1. Expect Jones' ADP to begin to rightfully fade.

On a five-yard catch, TE Adam Shaheen was carted to the locker room with an ankle injury during the Bears preseason matchup with the Broncos on Saturday. (Source: Brad Biggs on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The extent of the injury is unknown at this time. Shaheen showed some flashes during his rookie season with three TD catches. He figures to be the backup TE behind Trey Burton this season and will only have fantasy appeal if Burton suffers an injury.

Kevin White caught 2-of-4 balls thrown his way for 15 yards in the Bears 24-23 win over the Broncos in Saturday's preseason game.

Fantasy Impact: White received all four targets in the first half while playing with the first unit on Saturday while Bears number one wideout Allen Robinson saw limited snaps. White has reportedly had a good camp and is actually healthy (at the moment). White could be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues or as a handcuff for fantasy owners who draft Robinson in the early rounds.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber carried the ball six times for 32 yards and caught his lone target for three yards Saturday night versus the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Averaging 5.3 yards per carrying, Barber is out-playing once expected RB1 Ronald Jones thus far at training camp and in preseason action. Already being named the starter by Dirk Koetter, his recent play along with Ronald Jones' struggles are setting him apart even more. Barber is a value right now and should be targeted across all fantasy formats at his minimal risk double-digit round ADP.
