B Watson (BAL)

Benjamin Watson suffers torn Achilles, out for the season
Watson is coming off of a career year in 2015, however, he will not receive the opportunity to follow it up with another gem as he suffered a torn Achilles tendon and will miss the entire 2016 season. With Dennis Pitta sidelined with a broken finger, Crockett Gillmore is next in line to work with the first team offense and start for the Baltimore Ravens in 2016.

Fantasy Spin:
Baltimore Ravens TE Benjamin Watson (Achilles) suffered a torn Achilles tendon during Saturday's preseason contest against the Detroit Lions. Watson will miss the entire 2016 campaign as a result of the injury.

R Cobb (GBP)

Randall Cobb finds the end zone Friday against the 49ers
Cobb is currently being taken as the #43 player overall and the #19 receiver off the board. With the return of Jordy Nelson, Cobb will slide back into his versatile role as he can play in the slot or on the outside in most WR sets. Cobb has the potential of being one of the most consistent and reliable players in fantasy this season as the Packers wideouts have one of the easiest projected schedules in the NFL. Draft Cobb with extreme confidence knowing that he easily could be a top 10 Wide Reciever come years end.

Fantasy Spin:
Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Randall Cobb scored his first touchdown of the preseason Friday night when Aaron Rodgers found Cobb on a six-yard catch and run. The touchdown came on the first play in the second quarter ending the night for most of the first team offense for the Packers. Cobb finished the night catching three passes for 30 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers on Friday.

T Austin (RAM)

Tavon Austin signs contract extension
Austin is Los Angeles' playmaker at the wide receiver position who is also a threat as a rusher on gadget plays. The four-year veteran had his best year as a pro in 2015 catching 52 passes for 473 yards and five touchdowns adding another 434 yards and four scores on the ground. In the upcoming fantasy football campaign, Austin should be viewed as a low-end WR2/WR3 who has great upside. He is the No. 1 wideout on a team that invested the first overall pick in the draft on Jared Goff and have Case Keenum in place as their interim starter who is fighting to keep his job. Austin is a dual-threat talent who is poised to explode in 2016 and is a tremendous value at his WR45 positional ADP.

Fantasy Spin:
The Los Angeles Rams and WR Tavon Austin agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension worth $42 million that includes $30 million in guaranteed money.

S Gostkowski (NEP)

Stephen Gostkowski hits two of four field goals
Gostkowski was the leader in points for kickers last season with 151 points. Even with Tom Brady out for four games there is no reason the veteran kicker can't replicate that number as the Patriots should get plenty of scoring opportunities. He is the top kicker in fantasy and should be the first guy to go in drafts.

Fantasy Spin:
Stephen Gostkowski made two of four field goal attempts en route to scoring seven points in Friday's preseason win over the Panthers. Gostkowski, who missed a 30-yarder and a 52-yarder on Friday, missed just three times on 36 field goal attempts in 2015, and career-wise carries an 87.3 percent mark.
07:42 PM
D Prescott (DAL)

Dak Prescott likely to start in place of Tony Romo
Prescott has been magnificent in the preseason as Dallas' quarterback. The rookie signal caller completed 39-of-50 passes for 454 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions adding another 53 yards and two scores off of seven rushing attempts through a handful of quarters of exhibition play. As impressive as those stats are, Prescott will have to prove that he is the real deal in 2016. He instantly becomes a must-add in the upcoming fantasy football campaign.

Fantasy Spin:
Rookie signal caller Dak Prescott will likely enter the 2016 season as the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys with Tony Romo sidelined with a broken bone in his back.
07:39 PM
A Humphries (TBB)

Adam Humphries starts at WR and returns punt for a TD
Humphries is behind Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans in the pecking order but is a solid player. Although he will not likely be a major weekly contributor in season-long leagues, he will make a great DFS play and is going undrafted in most leagues.

Fantasy Spin:
Adam Humphries started in three WR sets for the Bucs and returned a 73-yard punt return for a TD. He added two catches for 39 yards.
07:35 PM
B Gabbert (SFO)

Blaine Gabbert likely 49ers starter
"All signs" point to Blaine being the starter and Kap picking up a clipboard. It's probably for the best, as Kap did not play well in his first pre-season action. It'll be a wait and see approach to see if Blaine is worth playing in juicy matchups in DFS.

Fantasy Spin:
Blaine Gabbert started in the pre-season game vs. the Packers and led the team on a 50-yard touchdown drive.
07:27 PM
T Romo (DAL)

Tony Romo could return by mid-season
This is devastating news for the Dallas Cowboys and Romo's fantasy owners alike. The good news is the injury-prone quarterback will likely return by mid-season, however, the bad news is that the Cowboys will enter the upcoming campaign with rookie Dak Prescott under center. Prescott has been magnificent during the preseason but things could change in regular season play. Monitor this situation as the Cowboys could be in the market for a veteran backup signal caller.

Fantasy Spin:
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) "has a compressure fracture of his L1 vertebrae" and could be sidelined for 6-to-10 weeks.
07:25 PM
R Aguayo (TBB)

Roberto Aguayo has a perfect night
He's a kicker, draft him in the last round of your draft.

Fantasy Spin:
Roberto Aguayo finished a perfect 6-for-6 kicking. His night included three extra points and field goals from 21, 27, and 48 yards.
07:10 PM
V Jackson (TBB)

Vincent Jackson averaged 19.5 yards per reception against Browns
When healthy, Vincent Jackson is a nice fantasy option. He is the second option behind Mike Evans in the passing game, but his size and ability make him a difficult cover especially if Evans gets the attention of the opponents' best corner. Jackson is well worth a roster spot as a WR4 with high upside.

Fantasy Spin:
Vincent Jackson caught 4 passes for 78 yards. Jackson looked healthy, fast, and caught a 31-yard pass on a post route from Jameis Winston.
07:06 PM
C Kaepernick (SFO)

Colin Kaepernick sits during National Anthem
This is a developing story that will not likely affect Kaepernick's status with the 49ers' organization or with the NFL. Per the league, the NFL "players are encouraged but not required to stand" for the National Anthem. Kaepernick is in the midst of an offseason-long position battle with Blaine Gabbert for the starting quarterback job in San Francisco, however, both should be avoided in the upcoming fantasy football campaign.

Fantasy Spin:
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been in and out of the news for the duration of the offseason for mostly the wrong reasons. Prior to Friday night's preseason contest against the Green Bay Packers, Kaepernick was seen sitting during the National Anthem. "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick said via NFL.com. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder." ESPN's Adam Schefter later reported that Kaepernick also sat for the National Anthem during the first two preseason games, but "few noticed" due to the fact that he wasn't in uniform and was inactive for those matchups.
06:50 PM
J Winston (TBB)

Jameis Winston impressive against Browns
The Bucs have weapons to spare and Winston looks comfortable distributing the ball all over the field. Winston is past sleeper status after a strong performance in his rookie season, but he could be in the breakout discussion. Draft him with confidence in later rounds.

Fantasy Spin:
Jameis Winston completed 16 of 25 passes for 259 yards, with two TDs and no interceptions. The Bucs moved the ball with ease and utilized a no-huddle offense they intend to continue to implement in the regular season.
06:45 PM
T Romo (DAL)

Tony Romo has broken bone in back
It appears that the severity of Romo's back injury is worse of than expected and could miss significant time in 2016. Dak Prescott will likely enter the upcoming campaign as the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) suffered a broken bone in his back during Thursday night's preseason contest against the Seattle Seahawks. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Cowboys "believe he'll return this season."
06:34 PM
K Marshall (WAS)

Keith Marshall suffers injury in third preseason contest
Marshall is in the midst of a preseason position battle with Rob Kelley for the No. 3 running back spot on Washinton's depth chart. Reports suggest that Marshall's durability is a concern for the Redskins and this injury could further push Kelley ahead of the rookie rusher. Both backs should remain on the waiver wire to start the upcoming fantasy football campaign.

Fantasy Spin:
Washington Redskins RB Keith Marshall (elbow) exited Friday night's preseason contest against the Buffalo Bills after his first carry of the night with a sprained elbow. Marshall will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the severity of the ailment.
06:31 PM
D Martin (TBB)

Doug Martin rushed for 18 yards in limited role
Martin finished as RB3 in standard leagues in 2015. The Bucs' offense is looking excellent, but they are also passing more from a no-huddle offense which could favor Charles Sims. Regardless, if the offense is more efficient and productive, it only helps Martin get more red zone opportunities.

Fantasy Spin:
Doug Martin rushed four times for 18 yards against the Browns on Friday night. The Bucs know what they have in Martin and were likely being cautious with him in a meaningless game.
