    Deshaun Watson Aug 18 11:58am ET
    Deshaun Watson

    The NFL and NFLPA have reached an agreement on an 11-game suspension for Browns QB Deshaun Watson. The settlement also includes a fine of $5 million.

    Austin Hooper Aug 18 11:00am ET
    Austin Hooper

    Tennessee Titans tight end Austin Hooper was busy in the team's joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday. He caught three straight passes during the two-minute period and had seven receptions on the day. Hooper was a disappointment in his time with the Cleveland Browns after making two straight Pro Bowl appearances in his final two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons in 2018 and 2019. However, he's developed some nice chemistry with new quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and the two could hook up quite often this year, making Hooper a TE2 sleeper worth taking a chance on in deeper fantasy football leagues.

    Michael Pittman Jr.

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. was very impressive in the joint practice with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday. The Athletic's Colton Pouncy wrote that Pittman carved up the Lions secondary all day and suggested that fantasy managers take a long look at Pittman in 2022. The third-year wideout looked like quarterback Matt Ryan's top target all afternoon. The 24-year-old had his first 1,000-yard season and six touchdowns in 17 games in his second NFL season with Carson Wentz under center. With the upgrade to Ryan in 2022, Pittman is looking even more attractive in fantasy football drafts as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2.

    Mecole Hardman Aug 18 10:50am ET
    Mecole Hardman

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman's (groin) injury that he suffered in training camp practice on Wednesday isn't considered serious, according to a source. Hardman landed awkwardly while making a catch, limped off the field under his own power and was then carted off. It remains to be seen if the 24-year-old will be good to go for the Week 1 regular season opener, but it appears he's avoided a long-term injury to begin the 2022 season. With Tyreek Hill now in Miami, Hardman will have a bigger role in the offense this year alongside JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. He was working as the Chiefs No. 3 receiver in the preseason opener last week. Hardman's injury will give rookie Skyy Moore increased repetitions in camp for the time being.

    Irv Smith Jr. Aug 18 10:40am ET
    Irv Smith Jr.

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said on Thursday that tight end Irv Smith Jr. (thumb), who had thumb surgery earlier this summer, is on track to play in Week 1 against the division-rival Green Bay Packers. Smith missed all of last season after having surgery to fix the meniscus in his right knee, but he's expected to be ready to go for the start of the regular season. How effective he'll be and how much he'll be on the field is a different story. The fact that he's missed most of training camp to this point isn't a great sign either. In his two seasons played in the NFL, the 24-year-old has 66 catches (90 targets) for 676 yards and seven touchdowns, but he could break out in 2022 if he stays healthy as the team's top pass-catching tight end. Consider Smith a TE2 in fantasy with upside.

    Alec Pierce Aug 18 10:30am ET
    Alec Pierce

    The Indianapolis Colts seem unlikely to sign a veteran wide receiver before the regular season, mainly based on the rate of growth from rookie receiver Alec Pierce. Pierce still has work to do, but his confidence is growing by the day. The 22-year-old is unlikely to be drafted in standard 12-team leagues, but he's one to keep an eye on. Pierce has been working with the first-team offense a lot in training camp practices, and he opened the team's preseason opener last week against the Buffalo Bills as a starter in three-receiver sets. The second-round pick should have his moments in his rookie year with quarterback Matt Ryan throwing him the ball, and he'll be a solid target in dynasty/keeper drafts in 2022.

    Josh Allen Aug 18 10:30am ET
    Josh Allen

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that quarterback Josh Allen is going to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Denver Broncos and that most of the starters will play "a healthy amount." Fantasy managers that have already drafted Allen as the likely overall QB1 will be keeping their fingers crossed that he comes out of this one healthy. Although the Bills offense is mostly intact from last season, they'll have a new offensive coordinator in Ken Dorsey. It shouldn't change all that much for the 26-year-old Allen, who finished the 2021 campaign as the QB1 in fantasy with 4,407 passing yards, 36 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, adding 763 rushing yards and six more TDs.

    James Robinson Aug 18 10:20am ET
    James Robinson

    Jacksonville Jaguars running back James Robinson (Achilles) has been taking part in team drills at training camp recently and has been making open-field cuts/moves, although he won't play in the team's preseason game this Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But head coach Doug Pederson said the hope and expectation is that Robinson will play in Week 1 against the Washington Commanders. Second-year back Travis Etienne Jr. is still garnering more attention in fantasy drafts, especially in PPR formats, but fantasy managers shouldn't completely ignore Robinson. Pairing both Etienne and Robinson in fantasy drafts would be ideal. Because the 24-year-old might not be full-go by the regular season opener, he'll probably be more of an RB3/flex standalone play, at best, in Week 1.

    Baker Mayfield Aug 18 10:10am ET
    Baker Mayfield

    The Carolina Panthers are expected to name quarterback Baker Mayfield their starting QB for Week 1 of the regular season against his former team, the Cleveland Browns, according to sources. Mayfield has been competing with Sam Darnold during training camp. Head coach Matt Rhule said he could decide between Mayfield and Darnold by the preseason game against the New England Patriots. It's always been Mayfield's job to lose after Carolina acquired him from the Browns in the offseason. The 27-year-old struggled through injuries in 2021 in his final season in Cleveland, but he'll be hoping to bounce back this year with better health, beginning with a revenge tilt. Mayfield will be a low-end QB2 for fantasy managers.

    Kenneth Walker III Aug 18 9:49am ET
    Kenneth Walker III

    Dynasty | Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker will miss the remainder of the preseason after undergoing a "procedue" Dynasty Analysis: There was not explanation by Pete Carroll as to what the surgery was for and no guarantee that Walker would be back by week one of the regular season, though he said that was the goal. Rashaad Penny has returned from a minor injury and now looks to have the starting role all to himself though other depth chart names will still factor. The Seahawks are a leaking ship in multiple spots but there has been excitement surrounding the run-game following the team's selection of Walker. As long as the rookie returns quickly and without setback, he'll remain a highly selected rookie. He's listed as DLF's RB17.

    Baker Mayfield Aug 18 9:13am ET
    Baker Mayfield

    Carolina Panthers QB Baker Mayfield is expected to be named starting quarterback for Week 1, according to sources.

    Fantasy Spin: Mayfield is expected to beat out Sam Darnold for the spot, but that was pretty much expected. He remains a QB2 option in fantasy.

    Travis Fulgham Aug 17 11:13pm ET
    Travis Fulgham

    Dynasty | Travis Fulgham was claimed off waivers from the Broncos by the Green Bay Packers. Dynasty Analysis: Fulgham was a dynasty darling in 2021 when he posted a 67/539/4 line for the Eagles, but has bounced around the league in the last year or so. He's worth keeping on watch lists as he's now on a depth chart not exactly stocked with talent. Still, there's little chance of Fulgham re-emerging as a viable dynasty asset and he's best left kept on the waiver wire.

    Bryce Perkins Aug 17 11:10pm ET
    Bryce Perkins

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Bryce Perkins will suit up for the second half of the preseason matchup against the Texans. John Wolford, who is starting and playing the first half, has the edge of remaining the No. 2 option on the depth chart. However, Perkins is making a case for himself to overthrow Wolford after accounting for three touchdowns during the Rams' preseason win over the Chargers on Saturday. Nevertheless, neither man possesses any fantasy value heading into the season. Yet, they should at least be considered for DFS contests on Friday night, especially with how much they'll be playing.

    Dallas Cowboys CB Jourdan Lewis (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the joint practice with the Los Angeles Chargers Wednesday, Aug. 17, and is scheduled to undergo an MRI.

    John Wolford Aug 17 11:00pm ET
    John Wolford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback John Wolford will start and play the first half of the preseason clash against Houston. The 26-year-old will get some exhibition reps in an attempt to hold down the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Matthew Stafford. However, with Bryce Perkins getting the nod for the second half, it appears Sean McVay is searching for his permanent backup. Nevertheless, neither of these guys have fantasy appeal in redraft formats heading into the 2022-23 campaign. Yet, both men deserve consideration for DFS lineups on Friday night, especially considering how much they'll be playing.

    Joe Burrow Aug 17 10:50pm ET
    Joe Burrow

    Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle La'el Collins (personal) didn't practice on Wednesday. Head coach Zac Taylor didn't specify when he'd return, only mentioning he expects him to be in uniform for Week 1. The 29-year-old inked a three-year, $21 million deal this offseason after spending seven years with Dallas. While signing Collins was a priority for the Bengals, a team that struggled to keep Joe Burrow upright last season, he recently returned to practice after sitting out because of a back issue. Nevertheless, Burrow should continue to captain the offense efficiently, no matter who is protecting him this season. However, Collins' play may suffer due to his absences throughout training camp, which isn't ideal.

    Matthew Stafford Aug 17 10:30pm ET
    Matthew Stafford

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford (elbow) informed reporters he "felt good" after recently participating fully in an intrasquad scrimmage. However, the veteran couldn't answer if he'd still be dealing with the residual effects of his bout with elbow tendinitis come Week 1. Still, Stafford has proven time and time again that he's one of the toughest quarterbacks in the league. That sentiment was echoed when the 34-year-old stated he would play through any lingering soreness while adding it shouldn't impact his performance. Nevertheless, Stafford is coming off a fantastic season that resulted in a Super Bowl win over the Bengals. Although nobody knows if he'll stay on the field for the entire 2022-23 campaign due to the ailment, he should remain classified as a starting fantasy signal-caller in all formats, especially with Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson II in his arsenal.

    Lamar Jackson Aug 17 10:10pm ET
    Lamar Jackson

    Baltimore Ravens center Tyler Linderbaum (foot) is expected to return to practice on Friday, according to head coach John Harbaugh. The No. 25 overall selection of the 2022 NFL Draft suffered a foot injury on August 4, although fortunately, it wasn't a Lisfranc issue, negating previous reports. Harbaugh will take it day-by-day with the rookie regarding his activity level, likely keeping him restricted to individual drills in the meantime. However, Linderbaum isn't a lock for Week 1, which isn't ideal for Lamar Jackson and company
