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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
07:06 PM
S Lee (DAL)

Sean Lee 'dealing' with knee injury
Dallas' D/ST was one of the worst options in 2015's fantasy football campaign and this season, they do not appear any better. The Cowboys will likely struggle to rush the passer and create turnovers and will have to rely on an improved secondary to make plays for the defense.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee), who has not practiced since playing in the team's third preseason contest against the Seattle Seahawks, underwent an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of yet another knee ailment. ESPN's Todd Archer is reporting that the Cowboys do not "believe" the injury will prevent Lee from playing in Week 1.
07:04 PM
T Bridgewater (MIN)

Teddy Bridgewater injured in practice
Until we have a clearer understanding of the injury, it is unknown how this will impact the Vikings. If it is serious, this could be disastrous for several Vikings' players.

Fantasy Spin:
Teddy Bridgewater went down with an apparent knee injury. The extent of the injury is still unknown, but it looks like it could be potentially serious.

L Taliaferro (BAL)

Lorenzo Taliaferro to begin the season on the PUP list
Baltimore's crowded backfield is appearing be trimming down as the 2016 season approaches under two weeks away. With Taliaferro set to miss the first six games of the season and Kenneth Dixon dealing with his own ailment, it looks like it will be Justin Forsett, Buck Allen and Terrance West as Baltimore's top three backs in Week 1 barring unforeseen changes to the roster.

Fantasy Spin:
The Baltimore Ravens have placed RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) on the PUP list.
06:54 PM

Giants re-sign Will Beatty to a one-year deal
Beatty will compete with T Marshall Newhouse for the RT job. Beatty will have to catch up to speed as Newhouse has spent the whole offseason with the first team as the starting RT.

Fantasy Spin:
Giants re-signed veteran RT Will Beatty to a one-year $1.1 million guaranteed deal with $750,000 in incentives. Beatty was released in February after spending last season on I.R. with a torn pectoral muscle.
06:49 PM
B Tate (CIN)

Brandon Tate released by Bengals
Tate is a special teams ace who excels in the return game. The seven-year veteran has three career return touchdowns and is a tremendous asset in the field position aspect of the game. Tate will likely catch on with another club who is in need of a boost on special teams.

Fantasy Spin:
The Cincinnati Bengals have released WR Brandon Tate on Tuesday.
06:42 PM
J Houston (KCC)

Justin Houston to begin season on the PUP list
Per league rules, if a player enters begins the season on the PUP list, he will not be eligible to return until Week 7, which is the case for Houston. Kansas City's D/ST is still an every-week starter in the upcoming fantasy football campaign despite Houston's absence.

Fantasy Spin:
Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (ACL) will begin the 2016 season on the PUP list.
04:30 PM
M Scifres (SDC)

Panthers release P Mike Scifres
Scifres was battling a knee injury as well. Scifres will look to the open market but may have to wait until he's fully healthy.

Fantasy Spin:
Panthers have released P Mike Scifres among other reserve players. The Panthers recently traded for P Andy Lee from the Browns making Scifres expendable.
02:52 PM
Q Coples (RAM)

Rams release DL Quinton Coples
Jeff Fisher said that he "wanted to give him a chance and give him an opportunity to get out there early to see if he could find work. If not, we're going to keep the door open for him." Sounds like door isn't close for Coples in LA but the Rams have one of the deepest DL's in the NFL.

Fantasy Spin:
Rams released DL Quinton Coples who are trimming their roster from 90 to 75 players. Coples has been a first round bust since the Jets drafted him back in 2012. Coples was transitioning from DE to DT and recorded two forced fumbles and one sack so far in the preseason but it wasn't enough for Coach Fisher.
