    Jalen Guyton Aug 14 5:30pm ET
    Jalen Guyton

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton hauled in both his targets for six yards during Saturday's 29-22 preseason loss to Los Angeles Rams. Guyton is battling with teammate Joshua Palmer to earn a starting role in this electrifying offense. Guyton possesses elite speed but will need to do more with his talent to earn consideration from the coaching staff. His skill set pairs well with the big arm of Justin Herbert, which could produce some big plays and spike weeks for fantasy managers if he can become more involved.

    Terry McLaurin Aug 14 5:30pm ET
    Terry McLaurin

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin had one reception for 17 yards in the preseason loss to the Carolina Panthers. McLaurin's lone reception was the longest completion for Carson Wentz on a day where the signal-caller was pretty efficient. The 26-year-old is entering his fourth season with what most would say is the best quarterback of his career so far. If the two can build a strong connection, new statistical heights may be in the cards for the talented wideout. While McLaurin is currently a high-end WR2, he certainly has WR1 upside.

    Sam Howell Aug 14 5:30pm ET
    Sam Howell

    Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell passed for 145 yards while completing nine of his 16 attempts during the preseason loss to Carolina. He also added three carries for 19 yards and two touchdowns. Howell saw no action for the entire first half but took over for most of the second. The fifth-round rookie did his best to make the game close as he led two fourth-quarter touchdown drives, resulting in two rushing touchdowns for himself. As a player projected to be a first-round pick at one point, Howell has a shot at taking over the backup quarterback job from Taylor Heinicke before the start of the season. If his impressive play continues, his fantasy stock could be on the rise as an insurance policy for Carson Wentz in deep Superflex leagues.

    Brian Robinson Jr. Aug 14 5:20pm ET
    Brian Robinson Jr.

    Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson carried the ball six times for 26 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's preseason loss to Carolina. He also added two receptions for 15 yards. The 23-year-old rookie started the day behind Antonio Gibson but quickly saw work due to Gibson's struggles with ball security. Robinson took full advantage of his opportunity by gaining 10 yards on his first carry and then nine yards on his first reception. The former Alabama running back is still expected to be listed behind Gibson on the depth chart, but there may be some consideration for a more prominent role if he continues to perform well throughout the preseason.

    Antonio Gibson Aug 14 5:20pm ET
    Antonio Gibson

    Washington Commanders running back Antonio Gibson carried the ball four times for two yards along with one reception for two yards in Saturday's loss to the Carolina Panthers. The 24-year-old had a rough start as his second carry resulted in a fumble, leading to him being quickly replaced by Brian Robinson. Gibson's ball security is still an issue, and the coaching staff seems to feel comfortable with what they have in Robinson. There's still time for the third-year back to regain trust, but he may be on his way to losing touches in this backfield. Be cautious when considering him during drafts.

    Curtis Samuel Aug 14 5:20pm ET
    Curtis Samuel

    Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel saw two targets in Washington's loss to the Carolina Panthers. The former Buckeye was the recipient of Carson Wentz's first pass of the game, racking up six yards before converting on third down off an eight-yard reception. His 14 total yards weren't much, but it was encouraging to see the 26-year-old back on the field after an injury-riddled 2021. With Samuel also getting work with the first team, he could be a nice speculative pick late in drafts heading into the season.

    Josh Palmer Aug 14 3:30pm ET
    Josh Palmer

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Joshua Palmer failed to record a catch despite receiving four targets during Saturday's 29-22 preseason loss to Los Angeles Rams. The sophomore receiver had a decent stretch at the end of last year, producing 15 receptions for 185 yards and three touchdowns in their final five games. Palmer has also received plenty of praise during training camp and currently projects to be the third option behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, which should be a meaningful role for fantasy managers. That said, Palmer will need to do more in his next game to ensure Jalen Guyton doesn't steal work and give the Chargers' coaching staff a reason to take him off the field.

    Chase Daniel Aug 14 3:30pm ET
    Chase Daniel

    Los Angeles Chargers backup quarterback Chase Daniel completed 11 of his 17 pass attempts for 117 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions during Saturday's 29-22 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Daniel was in command of an offense that was missing most of its starters. His touchdown throws included an accurate 41-yard strike to wide receiver Joe Reed and a short three-yard dump-off that receiver Michael Bandy took the remaining thirteen yards to the house. While he doesn't figure to see any regular season action, barring injury, it's beneficial to know that he could sustain the fantasy value of the Chargers' superstars, at least temporarily, should anything happen to Justin Herbert.

    Isaiah Spiller Aug 14 3:20pm ET
    Isaiah Spiller

    Los Angeles Chargers rookie running back Isaiah Spiller rushed the ball 10 times for 34 yards while adding one reception for 10 yards during Saturday's 29-22 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Spiller dropped to 123rd overall in the draft, largely because of his poor performance at the combine, but he could flourish in this high-octane offense if he can cede work from Austin Ekeler. However, before this becomes a possibility, he'll need to fend off Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree III. It was promising to see Spiller receive a target, but his inefficiency on the ground will need to improve to make an impact for fantasy managers this year.

    Kadarius Toney Aug 14 3:00pm ET
    Kadarius Toney

    New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney (leg, knee) is unlikely to suit up at practice during the upcoming week, head coach Brian Daboll told reporters Sunday. Toney was held out of the team's preseason opener due to lower-body injuries. The absence of Toney has left quarterback Daniel Jones with limited high-level pass-catching options during practice, as Kenny Golladay has scuffled with inconsistencies. When healthy, Toney showed flashes of explosiveness during his rookie season in New York, as he compiled 39 receptions for 420 receiving yards across 10 games (four starts). There should be ample opportunity for Toney to be a factor on a weekly basis once the regular season gets underway, although his status for Week 2 of the preseason against Cincinnati next Sunday appears murky at best.

    Joshua Kelley Aug 14 2:50pm ET
    Joshua Kelley

    Los Angeles Chargers running back Joshua Kelley carried the ball three times for 16 yards, adding another three receptions for 28 yards through the air during Saturday's 29-22 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Kelley began the game as the lead back and played only about a quarter of action before Larry Rountree III and Isaiah Spiller took over. Kelley entered last season with ambitions to be the backup behind Austin Ekeler. However, he failed to secure that role, prompting the team to draft the rookie Spiller 123rd overall. Kelley will have an opportunity to hold off Spiller, but he will need to continue to impress and outperform him during the preseason.

    DeVonta Smith Aug 14 2:40pm ET
    DeVonta Smith

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (groin) returned to the practice field Sunday and immediately rediscovered his rapport with quarterback Jalen Hurts. While Smith being sidelined by a groin ailment was largely precautionary, it's a boon to see him back in action. After a breakout rookie campaign in 2021 (916 receiving yards, five touchdowns), Smith figures to factor significantly into Philly's passing game this season, even with the addition of A.J. Brown taking a slight shine off his upside. The Eagles take the field for the second week of the preseason next Sunday vs. Cleveland, although making sure Smith is healthy for a matchup with the Lions in Week 1 of the regular season remains paramount.

    Joe Flacco Aug 14 2:30pm ET
    Joe Flacco

    New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco entered the season one play away from becoming the team's starting signal caller, and earlier this week, that play happened. Flacco now stands to be New York's starting QB for Week 1 if Zach Wilson (knee) -- who will undergo knee surgery Tuesday -- is not cleared in time. Flacco went 16-for-19 with an interception during practice Sunday, per reporters on the scene. The veteran did not suit up for the team's preseason opener, with Mike White and Chris Streveler taking over under center following Wilson's departure. While Flacco would have the motivation of facing his former organization (the Ravens) to begin the season, he is likely off the fantasy radar. Over the past two seasons, the Jets have gone 0-5 in games started by the 37-year-old.

    Drake London Aug 14 2:20pm ET
    Drake London

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London (knee) was not spotted during Sunday's practice, an unsurprising development after he departed Friday's preseason opener due to a right knee injury. London hauled in his first professional reception for 24 yards prior to his exit, but the team believes that he avoided any long-term concerns. Taken with the eighth overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, London is set to immediately play a significant role in the Falcons' new-look offense. The 6-foot-5 wideout hauled in 88 receptions for 1,084 yards and seven touchdowns during his junior season with USC, which earned him Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year honors. Fantasy managers will want to check back for further updates on his injury status as they become available.

    Kyle Trask Aug 14 1:20pm ET
    Kyle Trask

    Buccaneers' second-year quarterback Kyle Trask looked solid in Saturday's 26-24 preseason loss to the Dolphins. He completed 25 of his 33 passes for 258 yards, adding one touchdown and one interception. Trask even led the Bucs on a potential game-winning drive that unfortunately ended in a missed field goal. With Tom Brady returning for yet another season, Trask will not be an option in 2022 redraft leagues, but he is worth a stash in dynasty formats as the prospective future starter in Tampa Bay.

    Rachaad White Aug 14 1:10pm ET
    Rachaad White

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White turned seven carries into 32 yards and added two receptions for 13 yards during the preseason bout against Miami. He was also involved on special teams, returning two kicks for 43 yards. Although he ran behind Giovani Bernard and Ke'Shawn Vaughn, he was the most efficient of the three. The rookie profiles as a skilled receiving back and has been a standout in training camp, where he has been getting some reps with the first-team offense. He could see the field in 2022 if he continues to impress and may be worth a late-round flier in redraft fantasy leagues.

    From RotoBaller

    Ke'Shawn Vaughn Aug 14 1:10pm ET
    Ke'Shawn Vaughn

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn handled 10 carries for 19 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss to the Dolphins. He also added two receptions for 22 yards. Vaughn led the team in carries but failed to make an impact on the ground outside of the one-yard score. Leonard Fournette should continue to be a three-down back this season, but the Bucs also added Rachaad White in the third round of the 2022 draft, and pass-catching specialist Giovani Bernard is still on the roster. In this crowded backfield, it's hard to imagine Vaughn becoming fantasy-relevant at any point this season.

    Blaine Gabbert Aug 14 1:10pm ET
    Blaine Gabbert

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers veteran quarterback Blaine Gabbert got the start in the team's preseason opener against the Dolphins. He completed all five of his passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. Gabbert and second-year player Kyle Trask will continue to compete for the QB2 job behind Tom Brady. Trask shined on Saturday as well, but it's plausible that the Bucs rely on Gabbert's 11 years of experience if Brady were to miss any time this season. Brady has not missed a single game due to injury since 2008, however, so neither Gabbert nor Trask is expected to make a fantasy impact this season.

    Daniel Jones Aug 14 1:00pm ET
    Daniel Jones

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones had a rough go finding success during Sunday's practice, per observers. The signal caller is reported to have gone 6-for-20 through the air, including tossing an interception. While Kadarius Toney (leg, knee) was unavailable, Jones still struggled to get the ball out to his playmakers. The 25-year-old kicked off his preseason with a 6-for-10 passing performance in a win over New England, having thrown for 69 yards, while incurring a sack. The upcoming year is likely an inflection point for Jones and the Giants, after the first-round pick threw for just 10 passing touchdowns across 11 games last season. He is likely on the outside-looking of being a QB1 in the vast majority of fantasy formats.

    Zach Wilson Aug 14 1:00pm ET
    Zach Wilson

    New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) is set to have surgery on his partially torn meniscus Tuesday, per Jets head coach Robert Saleh. Wilson sustained the injury -- along with a bone bruise -- during the team's preseason opener against the Eagles. The expectation within New York is that the signal caller avoided a serious long-term injury. While Wilson has initially received a two-to-four week recovery diagnosis, it's always possible that could change coming out of surgery. For now, the Jets appear content to move forward with Joe Flacco as their starting quarterback, which would set up a Week 1 rematch with the organization that the veteran took to the Super Bowl a decade ago. Wilson was likely already facing a muddled path to fantasy consideration in most fantasy formats, but managers will want to check back post-surgery to get a clearer picture of his anticipated return.
