    Geno Smith Aug 25 12:17pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was the only QB to appear in Saturday's game besides Russell Wilson, and he took full advantage of the opportunity. Smith went 11-for-17 through the air for 117 yards, only got sacked once, and hustled in a touchdown on the ground. Smith showed poise in the pocket and regularly threw strong passes from awkward positions and while running. He looked like a solid backup quarterback who easily moved the ball up and down the field against LA's second- and third-string defense. With Paxton Lynch still in concussion protocol, this was a golden opportunity for Smith to show what he could do, and he took full advantage.

    Ronald Jones II Aug 25 12:11pm ET

    Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II started off hot and then fizzled out in Friday's matchup against Cleveland. He carried the ball twice for 12 yards to start and then lost yardage on his next two carries. He was targeted once on a screen but had the play blown up by the defense and was not targeted again. Overall, Jones showed some flashes and has throughout the preseason, yet we have not seen a large enough sample to make a case either way on him. He, unfortunately, was dealing with a knee issue coming into the game and that may have limited his touches. Hopefully, there is more work handed in the final week of the preseason to get a better gauge on where he should stand in fantasy drafts.

    Damare Crockett Aug 25 12:10pm ET

    Houston Texans running back Damarea Crockett had just four touches in Saturday's preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but he had 27 rushing yards and five receiving yards on those touches. Crockett looked like a better back than Karan Higdon, but Higdon had nine more touches. Crockett could be a fantasy sleeper with Lamar Miller missing the season with an ACL tear, but the situation in Houston is too difficult to figure out right now. Crockett should be grabbed in dynasty leagues, but in shallower re-draft leagues, leave him on waivers or undrafted until we know more.

    Chris Godwin Aug 25 12:10pm ET

    Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin looked the part of a breakout stud against Cleveland. He caught for of his six passes for 52 yards and most impressively gained a good chunk after the catch. Godwin is eating out of the slot and looks to be a mismatch against nickel corners all season. He and quarterback Jameis Winston have built a solid rapport through two offseasons together and if things click, Godwin may catapult himself into WR1 territory soon.

    Jameis Winston Aug 25 12:10pm ET

    Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was roughed up Friday against the Browns. He finished the day 9-for-19 as he amassed 88 yards and no touchdowns. Winston getting sacked five times was a big reason as to why he struggled but, that should not take away from his indecision with the ball in his hands. There were few plays where he held the ball too long. Even without open receivers in sight, he should have thrown it away to not lose yards. Winston seemingly still has a ways to go before being a trustworthy real-life QB,. However, as long as he keeps tossing it deep in that awesome Bucs' offense, the fantasy ceiling remains high for 2019.

    T Y Hilton Aug 25 12:08pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton saw his stock take a hit last night when his quarterback Andrew Luck announced his retirement. When Hilton and Luck were clicking together, he had a WR1 ceiling. With new starter Jacoby Brissett in place, he's more firmly in the WR2 category Hilton has the talent and explosiveness to move himself up, but he'll likely hover in that range for this season.

    Russell Wilson Aug 25 12:06pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson led two touchdown drives in the first half of the team's third preseason game on Saturday against the Chargers. He also missed a couple throws, including one clear overthrow on a third down, but overall, he looked like he was ready to start playing for real. Wilson finished with 73 yards on six completions, and though he didn't throw any for scores, his passing set them up. Wilson is one of the most reliable quarterbacks in fantasy for posting high touchdown totals and low interception totals, but the team's insistence on focusing on the running game limits his potential for a truly massive season.

    Charcandrick West Aug 25 11:30am ET

    Indianapolis Colts running back Charcandrick West was signed off the street, and, in the third preseason game against the Chicago Bears, he had 13 carries for 43 yards and one touchdown. He also added a little bit in the passing game with three catches for 27 yards. With running back D'Onta Foreman being recently waived, West may have grabbed the fourth running back spot if the team decides to keep that many.

    Donte Moncrief Aug 25 11:00am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Donte Moncrief is looking to make his case to become the team's second starting wide receiver and Sunday's third preseason game against the Titans will be a big factor in that decision. Moncrief caught one pass for eight yards in last week's game against the Chiefs, however, he coughed up that single touch. The 27-year-old is in his first year in Pittsburgh after catching 48 passes for 668 yards and three scores with Jacksonville last year. Moncrief is battling with James Washington for the second starting spot, but so far the reports are that the former has the edge even though Washington has played well this preseason. Moncrief has seen his ADP rise a bit recently, as high as into the seventh round according to FantasyFootballCalculator.com.

    Ben Roethlisberger Aug 25 10:50am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will open the team's third preseason game on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. It will be the 37-year-old's first taste of the 2019 preseason. While there is no guarantee for how much he'll play in the game, it is likely that Roethlisberger will get two-or three drives, depending on the results. It is also a big question mark on who of Joshua Dobbs or Mason Rudolph will follow up Big Ben in the game. Head coach Mike Tomlin doesn't want fans and media to look into who plays and when, in regards to being Roethlisberger's backup. The Steelers' veteran signal caller is going around the 11th round of fantasy drafts and is a strong option for those who wait to draft their quarterback.

    Matt Breida Aug 25 2:43am ET

    San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida ran for 44 yards on seven carries and caught two passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in the team's third preseason game against the can say Chiefs on Saturday, Aug. 24.

    Fantasy Spin: The fantasy community was quick to brush aside Breida after the 49ers signed Tevin Coleman, but the former is the same back he was last year when he averaged 5.3 yards per carry and 9.7 yards per catch. Breida looked like the better back in this one and could very well begin the season splitting touches with Coleman playing for a coach in Kyle Shanahan who usually gets good production from his running backs. The 24-year-old should be considered a strong RB3 option in fantasy drafts.

    Rashaad Penny Aug 25 2:13am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny carried eight times for 22 yards and a touchdown and added three receptions for 15 yards in the team's third preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday, Aug. 24.

    Fantasy Spin: From an efficiency standpoint, it was easily Penny's best performance of the summer. However, he has done very little in exhibition play to put any heat on starter Chris Carson, who appears primed to push for 300 touches if he can stay healthy in Seattle's run-heavy attack. Penny's fantasy upside is immense if Carson misses time, but the second-year back may be little more than a flex option until he earns a more substantial role.

    Deebo Samuel Aug 25 12:20am ET

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel caught two of three targets for 27 yards Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. After two solid preseason games, Samuel had a relatively quiet evening. The second-round rookie has demonstrated electric upside and could be in-line for a meaningful role immediately in the Niners offense. With a stellar college resume and advanced skillset, Samuel deserves some sleeper love as RotoBallers WR73.

    Dante Pettis Aug 25 12:10am ET

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis grabbed three balls on five targets for 36 yards Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Following two quiet games, Pettis was finally in the mix after he indicated he was playing explosive and consistent earlier this week. Despite being pushed by rookies Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd (back), Pettis appears a lock to start heading into Week 1. After emerging as the second option to tight end George Kittle last season, Pettis is shaping up as a solid backend WR2.

    Phillip Lindsay Aug 25 12:10am ET

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay did not take action on Saturday night in the Broncos preseason game versus the Los Angeles Rams. Lindsay is coming off of preseason week two where he took reps with the second team and the backs behind him looked lackluster. The 2nd-year back seems to have the starting job locked up in Denver going into the regular season as he looks to follow up a stellar rookie year.

    From RotoBaller

    Jalen Hurd Aug 25 12:10am ET

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd (back) did not play Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Hurd also sat out last Monday due to back tightness so two consecutive missed games is not a positive development. The 2019 third-round pick made noise with two touchdowns in the first preseason contest but has dealt with nagging injuries even before he was a Niner. Hurd has the size to be a legitimate red zone threat but his fantasy impact will be muted until he sees the field.

    Brandon McManus Aug 25 12:10am ET

    Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus continued what has been an impressive preseason, with a solid performance Saturday night against the Los Angeles Rams. The 6th-year kicker connected on both field-goal attempts on the night, with a long of 38 yards. McManus looks to keep his consistency going in 2019, surrounded by an improved roster from the 2018 season.

    Matt Breida Aug 25 12:00am ET

    San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida recorded nine touches for 75 yards and a touchdown Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Breida toted the rock seven times for 44 yards and added two catches for 31 yards including a 20-yard touchdown from Jimmy Garoppolo in the first quarter. While Breida will share snaps with Tevin Coleman this season, the third-year player has repeatedly proven he can make plays when he touches the ball. He should make a fine RB3/flex heading into 2019.

    Sean Lee Aug 24 11:53pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) said he knee was not ready to play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 24, but he still expects to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

    Denzel Perryman Aug 24 11:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (undisclosed) exited the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Aug. 24.
