Most leagues feature 10 or 12 owners, but not all of those owners know what to do with their late-round picks. Dave Richard has uncovered some sweet sleepers to help round out your roster (even if you've already drafted).
Peterson (rest) did not suit up for the Cardinals' third preseason game Sunday against the Texans.
It's unclear why he didn't play, but Peterson will spend the afternoon in street clothes while Brandon Williams, Mike Jenkins and Justin Bethel assume the majority of the work with the starting unit. Peterson is fully expected to be ready for the regular season opener, though.
Williams (unspecified reason) wasn't in uniform in advance of Sunday's preseason game against the Texans.
Per the report, Williams was "watched carefully by RB coach Stump Mitchell and trainers Tom Reed and Chad Cook early before the game," thus suggesting that the Cardinals' depth running back is dealing with an undisclosed injury.
Head coach Bruce Arians said Brown (concussion) has been medically cleared to play, Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com reports.
While Brown has reportedly gotten the go-ahead from team doctors, head coach Bruce Arians said the wideout's availability is still to be determined. If Brown did indeed clear the NFL's concussion protocol, it must have happened at some point Tuesday, as Arians said Monday that Brown was still bothered by headaches. Barring any late setbacks, Brown should plenty of have time to prepare for Week 1 against the Patriots, despite missing the entire preseason. If he isn't back at practice next week, then it will be time for owners to worry.
Riddick has suffered a torn oblique, which is accompanied by an unknown timetable, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Riddick didn't take the practice field Sunday, and the culprit is now clear. After failing to log one snap as a rookie in 2015, he had his work cut out for him in camp due to the offseason pickup of pass rusher Chandler Jones. The Cardinals likely aren't considering cutting bait at this point, but the current injury certainly doesn't do Riddick any favors.
Fitzgerald (knee) is not slated to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Texans, Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com reports.
Fitzgerald, who has been dealing with a minor MCL sprain, was actually on the field during early warmups with his helmet on, catching passes. Per the report, the veteran wideout "was moving around fine," with the decision to hold him out of action Sunday presumably precautionary in nature.
Okafor has opted to avoid surgery and play with a torn biceps, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Okafor sustained the injury in Tuesday's practice, the second such torn biceps in his three-year career. In 2013, surgery was ordered up for the then rookie, but examinations may have revealed that the tear was less severe than three seasons ago. The pass rusher has totaled 10 sacks the past two campaigns, while logging 66 and 58.5 percent of the defensive snaps, but the addition of Chandler Jones along with the injury could very well result in a scaled-back role.
Head coach Bruce Arians has given Mathieu (knee) clearance to play, but the defensive back is unlikely to take the field for Thursday's preseason game versus the Broncos, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
Finally in the latter stages of his recovery from a torn ACL, Mathieu requires practice reps to get up to speed, but Arians nonetheless expects him to be out there for the Cardinals' Week 1 contest against the Patriots.
Brooks is questionable for Friday's preseason contest against the Raiders, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. On Tuesday, head coach Bruce Arians told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic that Brooks is dealing with a quadriceps injury.
Arizona's secondary is banged-up at the moment, but an ailment won't allow Brooks to make a mark in the exhibition opener. He's so far gone through a journey personified by an undrafted free agent -- signed with the Cards in May of 2015, released after his first preseason, signed to the Cards' practice squad, bumped to the active roster last October, waived/injured in November, released from IR on Dec. 29, and signed to a futures contract in late January -- and a similar path this season isn't out of the question.
Pitta (finger) will return from his injury by Week 1, according to coach John Harbaugh.
Pitta has been out since the beginning of this month due to a finger injury suffered during a practice scuffle, but will finally return to the fold soon. That comes as good news ahead of the regular season, as the Ravens have been decimated at tight end to this point. Projected starter Ben Watson (Achilles) will miss the entire season after being injured over the weekend, and although Maxx Williams (undisclosed) should return soon, Crockett Gillmore embodies the new expected starter. While Pitta still has to prove he can remain healthy once he returns, his veteran presence should at least boost Baltimore's options behind Gillmore.
Dixon has an MCL tear and is expected to be sidelined for four weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.
Dixon was carted off the field during Saturday's preseason game after taking a hard goal-line hit during the second quarter. It was originally expected to be just a minor issue, but after an MRI revealed a torn MCL, he'll sit out for around four weeks. With Dixon on the sidelines, both Terrance West and Javorious Allen could have a chance to earn a bigger role behind expected starter Justin Forsett.
Dumervil (foot/ankle) is not expected to play in Saturday's matchup with the Lions, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Dumervil began camp on the physically unable to perform list due to offseason ankle surgery and he returned to practice earlier this week. Despite being okayed for practice, the team doesn't want to rush him back and he may not see the field before the regular season opener. If he's sidelined Saturday, look for Albert McClellan to see some time with the starting defense.
Clay (foot) was revealed to have suffered a broken foot, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Clay suffered a foot injury during practice on Saturday, but the nature of which was previously undisclosed. However, he was considered lost for the season from the start which is why he was released with an injury designation on Monday.
Elam fell on his knee during Saturday's preseason win over the Colts, and he'll need surgery to clean out the issue as a result.
Elam's injury isn't season-ending according to coach John Harbaugh, but it should keep the Ravens' safety out for an extended period of time. His absence won't have too much of an impact in terms of the team's secondary, with Eric Weddle and Lardarius Webb positioned as the starting safeties. An update regarding Elam's return timetable should become available when more information is released following his surgery.
Perriman (knee) has been cleared to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Saints, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Perriman was already expected to play in a game for the first time since college, pending approval from the Ravens' medical staff. Although he received that approval Tuesday, the 22-year-old wideout does still need final clearance from head coach John Harbaugh, who suggested Monday that it won't be an issue.
Smith (Achilles) will not play in the Ravens' third preseason game Saturday against the Lions, The Baltimore Sun reports.
Smith, who had torn his Achilles' tendon last November, was activated from the team's PUP list just last week. Thus, his participation in Saturday's preseason tilt was always considered doubtful. His Week 1 status remains questionable.
Lewis missed Monday's practice with an undisclosed injury, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.
Regardless of his health, Lewis is expected to come off the bench behind Eric Weddle and Lardarius Webb. It's even possible Lewis could have to earn his roster spot, though the Ravens usually keep at least five safeties.
Young left Thursday's matchup with the Pangers to have his knee examined in the locker room, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Young projected as the third right cornerback on on the Ravens' depth chart heading into the preseason opener. He was also likely going to get some looks at returning kicks. It is unclear how serious of an issue this is, so his status going forward is not known.
Smith had three tackles (two solo) in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.
Smith enjoyed a healthy training camp and preseason, despite having surgery in late April to remove screws from his surgically repaired right foot. He's locked in as the team's top cornerback, with Shareece Wright opening the season as the other starter. Though he arguably had the best statistical year of his career in 2015, Smith and the rest of the Baltimore secondary struggled to slow opponents.
Williams (undisclosed) will return shortly after the Ravens' final preseason game, according to coach John Harbaugh.
Williams has missed Baltimore's past two preseason tilts due to an undisclosed injury, and although he'll seemingly return soon, Harbaugh was somewhat vague as to whether he'll be ready for Week 1. After Ben Watson's season-ending Achilles injury, Crockett Gillmore leads the Ravens' healthy options at tight end right now, so getting Williams and Dennis Pitta (finger) back soon would be a needed relief for the team.
Davis (undisclosed) did not practice Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Coming off a torn ACL suffered last October, Davis was somewhat-surprisingly not placed on the Ravens' PUP list to begin training camp. Assuming he hasn't re-aggravated the injury, when healthy, Davis should be set to compete for the nickelback role he quickly earned in the Ravens' secondary after being acquired from the Dolphins last September.
Boyle has been suspended for the first 10 games of the 2016 campaign due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Boyle was utilized sparsely as a rookie in 2015, hauling in 18 balls for 153 yards over the course of 11 games. However, he received his first suspension related to PEDs on Dec. 7 and subsequently missed the final four contests of the season. With Boyle out of the picture for most of next season, the Ravens rely upon Crockett Gillmore (back) and Maxx Williams to man tight end.
Juszczyk finished the 2015 season with 41 catches for 321 yards and four touchdowns, adding three yards on two carries.
Juszczyk is one of the NFL's better fullbacks, especially from a receiving standpoint. However, he rarely gets carries to complement the catches, leaving him as an afterthought even in deeper formats. His rookie contract runs through 2016.
Flacco (knee) completed 11 of 16 passes for 94 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.
Suiting up for the first time since he tore his ACL in November, the 31-year-old Flacco produced three points on two first-quarter drives, the second of which ended with an unsuccessful fourth-down attempt. He likely would have played deeper into the game, if not for the fact he piled up 16 pass attempts (and a sack) on just two series. Flacco did miss a couple of throws, but he didn't appear to be impacted by his surgically-repaired left knee, which jibes with reports from training camp. Flacco has been a full participant since the start of camp, with no setbacks reported at any point. On a less optimistic note, starting tight end Ben Watson is out for the season after suffering a torn Achilles early in Saturday's game. The Ravens do have strong depth at the position, but Maxx Williams (undisclosed) and Dennis Pitta (finger) are also injured. Furthermore, wideouts Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee) remain uncertain for the start of the season, despite returning to practice this past week.
