  • LeGarrette Blount NE RB
    Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Shows off hurdle in Carolina
    30m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    LeGarrette Blount gained 26 yards on five carries and 16 yards on three receptions (three targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Even with Tyler Gaffney impressively gaining 35 yards on nine carries, Blount seemingly moved one step closer to locking down the top power back role, with his night highlighted by a hurdle at the end of a 17-yard run. While otherwise quiet on the ground, Blount did come up with a rare contribution through the air, just one week after gashing the Bears for 69 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. If Blount is confirmed to have won the role, Gaffney and D.J. Foster will compete for one roster spot, offering very different skill sets at the running back position.

    Patriots' Tyler Gaffney: Mixes in with starters
    34m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tyler Gaffney gained 35 yards on nine carries in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Perhaps more important than the stat line, Gaffney split first-team work with LeGarrette Blount, who gained 26 yards on five carries and 16 yards on three receptions. Both running back looked pretty good, with Blount ripping off one of his trademark hurdles on a 17-yard run. Despite his strong push, Gaffney probably hasn't done enough to supplant the more-experienced Blount as New England's top power back, with the latter also enjoying a strong preseason. Gaffney does seemingly still have a good shot to earn a roster spot, though it's possible the New England Patriots could go with pass-catching specialist D.J. Foster instead.

    Steelers' DeAngelo Williams: Gets first work of preseason
    40m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Making his first appearance of the 2016 preseason, DeAngelo Williams gained 12 yards on four carries and nine yards on three receptions (four targets) in Friday's exhibition against the Saints.

    Williams split first-team work with Le'Veon Bell (susspension, who had three carries for 21 yards and five catches for 37 yards (five targets). It's telling that the two combined for nine targets, as the Pittsburgh Steelers no longer have Martavis Bryant (suspension) and may not have Ladarius Green (ankle) early in the season. With Bell suspended for the first three games, Williams should be one of the busiest running backs in the league, handling a hefty workload both on the ground and through the air. Fitzgerald Toussaint and Daryl Richardson are vying for backup work.

    49ers' Vance McDonald: Draws four targets

    Vance McDonald caught one pass for two yards on four targets in Friday's preseason game against the Packers.

    With the San Francisco 49ers lacking in talent at wide receiver, McDonald and Garrett Celek have both received extensive playing time with a first-team offense that often deploys two-TE formations. Although Celek accounted for both of Blaine Gabbert's completions Friday, it still appears McDonald is ahead in the race for the No. 1 tight end role. It could be a fluid situation throughout the season, with both players occupying key roles in many games.

    Celek is competing for the starting job against Vance McDonald, who is listed atop the depth chart and seems to be enjoying a better preseason. However, Friday's game would seem to suggest that both players are still in the mix for the No. 1 job, though it's also worth noting that Celek's contribution may have mostly resulted from San Francisco's reliance on two-TE formations. With the team boasting so little talent at wideout and hoping to rely on the run, McDonald and Celek could both have key roles to start the season.

    Cameron Heyward (ankle) said he expects to be ready for Week 1, despite suffering a high ankle sprain in Friday's preseason game against the Saints, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    While not completely unheard of, two weeks would represent a very quick recovery from a high ankle sprain. In all likelihood, Heyward will be no better than questionable for Week 1, perhaps even needing to miss the first few games of the season. It would be a big loss for Pittsburgh's defense, though the unit does boast improved depth in the front seven this year.

    Blaine Gabbert completed two of three passes for 14 yards, adding two carries for 15 yards, in Friday's preseason game against the Packers.

    Gabbert drew the start and led the San Francisco 49ers to seven points on two drives, whereas Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) eeked out just one first down on three series. Though far from impressive this preseason, Gabbert hasn't felt any real pressure from Kaepernick in the "battle" for San Francisco's starting job. Even with Kaepernick now healthy, Gabbert remains a clear favorite to start Week 1 against the Rams.

    Starter Blaine Gabbert completed two of three passes for only 14 yards, but he did produce seven points on two drives, whereas Kaepernick was held scoreless over three series. Although head coach Chip Kelly said Kapernick would have a chance to make his claim for the starting job, Friday's game put that sentiment into question, as Kelly turned to Jeff Driskell for the start of the second half. Gabbert thus remains a clear favorite to start Week 1 against the Rams, though it's possible Kaepernick could see extended playing time in the final preseason game.

    Griffin completed eight of 14 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown, adding one carry for four yards, in Friday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

    Although the stat line doesn't look too bad, Cleveland's first-team offense had an ugly evening, with Griffin taking five sacks on 19 dropbacks. The only real highlights were a pair of deep completions to Josh Gordon (suspension), with the first going for a 44-yard gain on the opening drive, and the second for a 43-yard touchdown shortly before halftime. The touchdown was thrown directly into coverage, allowing Gordon to come back on the ball and use his massive size advantage over Bucs CB Brent Grimes. While Gordon's strong effort was encouraging for the Cleveland offense, first-round selection Corey Coleman failed to impress, held without a catch on two targets. There isn't a shortage of talent, but the Cleveland Browns ' offense is clearly still a work in progress, with the process made more difficult by a slew of nagging injuries and Gordon's impending four-game suspension.

    Jimmy Garoppolo started and played the first three drives, before giving way to Brady for the next four series. Brady made a few beautiful throws, including a 33-yard touchdown to Chris Hogan, but he also got quite lucky on an easy dropped interception. Brady is unlikely to play in the New England Patriots ' final exhibition, which means his next game action will come Week 5 in Cleveland, after he serves a four-game suspension.

    Duke Johnson (head) gained 22 yards on three carries and nine yards on one reception (one target) in Friday's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

    Though efficient with his touches, Johnson was essentially limited to obvious passing downs with the first-team offense, while Isaiah Crowell handled the bulk of the rushing workload. The split isn't exactly surprising, but there had been some thought that Johnson could push for more early-down work in his second season. Not that it's totally out of the question, but Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson does seem to to heavily favor Crowell as a rusher.

    With LeSean McCoy held out due to a coach's decision, Bush essentially got the start by default, as Mike Gillislee (concussion) was unavailable. Head coach Rex Ryan recently referred to Gillislee as the team's No. 2 running back, though Ryan did also make it clear that Bush is in the mix for backup work. Rookie fifth-rounder Jonathan Williams (rib) also has a strong chance to make the team, and regardless of how things shake out, Bush probably won't be given a heavy rushing workload. While Bush should have a role on special teams and in the passing game, he isn't the clear handcuff to McCoy.

    Powell may have been on the outside looking in earlier in the summer, but with none of the logjam of reserve receivers stepping up the last few weeks, he may have worked his way back into a final roster consideration.

    Mike Evans caught five passes for 115 yards and a touchdown (five targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Evans did all of his damage in the first half, helping Jameis Winston put up 259 yards and a pair of touchdowns before halftime. Winston did a better job of getting his secondary options involved this week, but it was still Evans who came up with the big plays to lead Tampa's attack. Vincent Jackson caught four passes for 78 yards on nine targets, with Charles Sims contributing three receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown, and Adam Humphries adding two catches for 39. Conspicuously absent was TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who caught his only target for a five-yard gain. In any case, Evans figures to lead the Bucs by a wide margin in targets per game, with plenty of his work coming in the end zone.

Abbrederis and Davante Adams both played through the end of the second quarter, with the latter managing just one catch for four yards on four targets, though he did have a 48-yard gain wiped out by a penalty.

Abbrederis did draw an illegal contact penalty on Green Bay's opening drive, while Adams had a 48-yard gain wiped out by an offensive pass interference penalty just two snaps later. Meanwhile, Jordy Nelson (knee) was once again held out, allowing Trevor Davis and Ty Montgomery to get work with the first-team offense, joining Adams, Abbrederis and Randall Cobb, according to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Packers ' official site. Despite mostly disappointing this preseason, Adams is still the best bet to enter Week 1 as Green Bay's No. 3 wideout. With Jeff Janis (hand) out for 4-6 weeks, Abbrederis looks like the only immediate threat to Adams' role.

    The Carolina first-team offense played deep into the third quarter, with Funchess, Kelvin Benjamin, Ted Ginn and Brenton Bersin all getting significant run. Though Funchess seemed to operate as the No. 3 wideout, he did get a bunch of snaps in two-wide formations, replacing either Benjamin or Ginn. None of the bunch managed to impress, as the Carolina Panthers offense was an all-around disaster until third-string quarterback Joe Webb took over in the fourth quarter. While he may not have gained any ground Friday night, Funchess has reportedly made a strong impression during training camp, with wide receivers coach Ricky Proehl recently hinting that the second-year player might even push Benjamin for the No. 1 role. That's probably too much to expect, but Funchess could still have a key role early in the season, especially if Benjamin's conditioning remains problematic.

    The rookie kicker had admitted Monday that he was perhaps focusing "too much on detail and techniques" on the misses he'd had until that point, and that he just needed to "kick the ball." That approach would have come in handy Tuesday, when Aguayo misfired on three kicks in the joint practice session, including one particular miss that drew groans from the crowd. Head coach Dirk Koetter made no bones about his kicker's struggles when speaking to the media, but deferred any questions to general manager Jason Licht about whether another kicker might be brought in as competition for the 2016 second-round pick if the struggles continue. "He's struggling," coach Dirk Koetter conceded after Tuesday's practice. "He's struggling a little bit right now. He has to work his way through it. We've talked to him. He knows what he has to do.

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
