D Jordan (MIA)

Dion Jordan is on reserve/NFI list
There are players on the team who have never seen Jordan play. The same goes for his head coach. Jordan only has value as a stash in the deepest of IDP leagues, or dynasty leagues if you're feeling Nostradamically lucky.

Fantasy Spin:
Dion Jordan has been placed on the reserve/non-football injury list which will make him unavailable for the first six weeks. He just recently returned from a suspension that took him out the whole 2015 season, and has been rehabbing a knee injury during camp. He hasn't played since 2014.

B Sorensen (SDC)

Brad Sorensen to re-sign with the Vikings
Shaun Hill should remain the starter, but Sorensen's understanding of the playbook gives the Vikings some time to find another QB.

Fantasy Spin:
Brad Sorensen was recently waived by the Vikings but will re-sign tomorrow due to Teddy Bridgewater's injury.
12:58 AM
S Hill (MIN)

Shaun Hill the likely starter for Vikings
Hill is a 36-year-old veteran who should be able to do what the Vikings need him to do; manage games and not turn the ball over. But management is not good for fantasy purposes and will hurt all Vikings with the exception of maybe Adrian Peterson. That being said, defenses will likely load the box and force Hill to throw.

Fantasy Spin:
Shaun Hill will likely assume starting QB duties for the Vikings after Teddy Bridgewater's devastating knee injury. The Vikings are looking for other QBs, but Hill is the most logical choice for the time being.
12:33 AM
T Bridgewater (MIN)

Vikings confirm Teddy Bridgewater suffered ACL tear
It's a huge blow for the Vikings and the young QB. Don't expect much from the Vikings receivers this season while Adrian Peterson should shoulder an even heavier load.

Fantasy Spin:
After speculation, the Vikings have confirmed that Teddy Bridgewater suffered a complete ACL tear and will miss the rest of the season.

E Sanders (DEN)

Emmanuel Sanders misses practice
This doesn't sound like anything to be alarmed about. Continue to operate under the assumption that Emmanuel Sanders will be out there with the first team offense and play a majority of the Broncos' offensive snaps in week one.

Fantasy Spin:
Emmanuel Sanders missed practice on Tuesday with an undisclosed illness.
08:57 PM
J Hanna (DAL)

James Hanna placed on the PUP list
Hanna will miss the first six weeks of the regular season as he was placed on the PUP list on Tuesday. The four-year veteran was expected to enter the season as the No. 2 tight end on the depth chart behind Jason Witten, but will likely have to work his way back up to that spot upon his return.

Fantasy Spin:
The Dallas Cowboys have placed TE James Hanna (knee) on the PUP list on Tuesday.
08:54 PM
M Jenkins (TBB)

Mike Jenkins out for the year
This adds concern to the CB position. This group already lacks depth. The starting job opposite Patrick Peterson is still open and is a competition between Justin Bethel and rookie Brandon Williams, both of whom have had their struggles in preseason. These struggles may cause concern for monitoring the progress of their defense, but nevertheless still remains a top option in fantasy.

Fantasy Spin:
Arizona Cardinals CB Mike Jenkins tore his ACL Sunday against the Texans and will spend this season on IR. Bruce Arians, " He's going to have to have surgery and he'll be out for the year."
08:53 PM
K Moore (DAL)

Kellen Moore lands on the injured reserve list
Moore suffered an ankle injury early in training camp and had surgery to repair the ailment. The Cowboys placed Moore on the injured reserve list on Tuesday ending his season. With Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers as the only healthy quarterbacks on the roster, the Cowboys are in need of a veteran signal caller entering the 2016 campaign.

Fantasy Spin:
The Dallas Cowboys have placed QB Kellen Moore (ankle) on the injured-reserve list on Tuesday.
08:25 PM
D Cobb (TEN)

David Cobb has been cut by the Tennessee Titans
One year removed from being the "back" to really own the Tennesse backfield Cobb has been released. With the acquisition of DeMarco Murray and the drafting of Derick Henry, there is not much room left for Cobb. It will be seen whether or not he can catch on with another team but for fantasy purposes Cobb is irrelevant.

Fantasy Spin:
The Tennessee Titans have released RB David Cobb.
08:19 PM
T Bridgewater (MIN)

Teddy Bridgewater tears ACL, out for season
It is a devastating loss, and one that significantly impacts the fantasy value of many of the Vikings offensive players. Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

Fantasy Spin:
Updating a previous item, it has been confirmed that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a torn ACL and will miss the entire 2016 season.
08:18 PM
J Kerley (SFO)

Jeremy Kerley acquired by 49ers via trade with Lions
The 27-year old WR entering his sixth season had 16 receptions for 152 yards and two touchdowns last season with the Jets from the slot position. He offers the 49ers some experience as a slot WR, but his fantasy impact won't be well known until the season starts and he sees some playing time in a new offense.

Fantasy Spin:
The San Francisco 49ers traded for New York Jets WR Jeremy Kerley in exchange for offensive lineman Brandon Thomas.
08:12 PM
B Ellington (SFO)

Bruce Ellington (hamstring) placed on season-ending injured reserve
In the last 24 hours, the 49ers received WR Jeremy Kerley in a trade with the Detroit Lions to replace Bruce Ellington. It's too bad Ellington will miss this season as the 49ers saw a lot of potential from him, especially in the return game. This leaves the receiving core wide open for any 49ers receivers looking for more playing time, but does not provide a significant change fantasy wise for any of them.

Fantasy Spin:
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver/returner was placed on the season-ending IR on Tuesday due to a hamstring tear.
08:04 PM
B Ellington (SFO)

Bruce Ellington placed on IR
No word yet on if it will be on the designated to return list or if it will be season-long, but it's clear that Ellington suffered a substantial hamstring injury. It is disappointing, considering Ellington had been the talk of 49ers camp and was expected to play a big role. With him out, Torrey Smith should see even more targets.

Fantasy Spin:
The San Francisco 49ers have placed wide receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring) on IR, according to reports
07:37 PM
B Roethlisberger (PIT)

Ben Roethlisberger won't play Thursday against the Panthers
This hardly comes as a shock, but there are a few teams planning to give their starters a couple of reps during the fourth week of preseason. Roethlisberger appeared to be in mid-season form in the Steelers' third preseason game, throwing for 148 yards and two touchdowns in his only two drives of the night. Look for Roethlisberger to be healthy and ready to go for Pittsburgh's Week 1 Monday night matchup against the Redskins, where he'll be a no-brainer QB1 in fantasy.

Fantasy Spin:
According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that QB Ben Roethlisberger will be among the many starters held out of Thursday's fourth and final preseason contest.
07:30 PM
D McFadden (DAL)

Darren McFadden garnering interest from teams around the NFL
McFadden is garnering trade interest from teams around the NFL, but the Cowboys do not appear to be interested in parting ways with the veteran rusher. McFadden has been sidelined with an elbow injury and missed all of training camp and the preseason, however, the team has not ruled him out for Week 1. In the wake of McFadden's absence, and Alfred Morris' solid performance in the preseason, the former Redskins back will likely enter the upcoming fantasy football campaign as Ezekiel Elliott's handcuff.

Fantasy Spin:
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that teams around the NFL have contacted the Dallas Cowboys in an attempt to acquire RB Darren McFadden in a trade. Rapoport later added that the Cowboys "really want to keep" McFadden in 2016.
