D Martin (TBB)

Mike James Listed As Probable
Tampa Bay backup running back Mike James (shoulder) is practicing and probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Fantasy Spin:
Bobby Rainey won the battle over James for the backup role over to Doug Martin. Neither player will be worth a fantasy selection, unless something happens to Martin.

Chris Polk Questionable For Week 1
Eagles backup running back Chris Polk is questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville due to a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Spin:
The Eagles are carrying only three running backs to start the season - LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles and Polk. Polk has no fantasy value unless there is an injury.

K Moreno (MIA)
L Miller (MIA)

Knowshon Morneo Now Atop Dolphins' Depth Chart
Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald says "it is clear Knowshon Moreno is Miami's lead running back."

Fantasy Spin:
Due to Moreno's knee surgery, Lamar Miller ran with the first-team for most of training camp and the preseason, but he averaged just 3.4 ypc while Moreno ran for 6.4. Miller is expected to have a package of plays, but he's going to be Miami's change-of-pace back.

Seahawks Christine Michael Not Likely Ready For Week 1
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that running back Christine Michael (hamstring) is "banged up," according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.

Fantasy Spin:
Michael is iffy for the season opener. The second-year back went into training camp with a ton of buzz, but Marshawn Lynch remains the workhorse after resolving his contract issues and Michael may still be behind Robert Turbin on the depth chart.

R Gronkowski (NEP)

Gronk Will Play Week 1 But Not Every Snap
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) said he won't play every snap in Week 1, according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com.

Fantasy Spin:
Less than nine months after Gronk tore his ACL and MCL, we're just happy to see him back on the field. He doesn't have to play every snap to be a fantasy factor. As long as he's on the field when New England gets in the red zone he'll be a threat to post top-five tight end numbers.

Radiers Announce Carr Will Start Over Schaub Week 1

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Raiders players have been informed that the team will start Derek Carr at quarterback in Week 1.



Fantasy Spin:

Schaub was horrible in the preseason and is dealing with elbow soreness. Carr, a rookie second-rounder, is simply a better option than Schaub at this point and should improve the fantasy value of Oakland's skill position players.

B Tate (CLE)

Ben Tate To Be Browns Every Down Back
Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports Browns head coach Mike Pettine said he's comfortable with running back Ben Tate playing on third down.

Fantasy Spin:
This is certainly good news for Tate owners, but it hurts fantasy owners that were hoping rookie Terrance West would get some opportunities to get on the field on third downs. It now looks like West's only fantasy value is as a handcuff, which is still a useful because of Tate's injury record.

N Burleson (FA)

Burleson Bounced Out By Browns
The Browns brought in receiver Nate Burleson to help, but apparently he couldn't and the team has released him.

Fantasy Spin:
It was just 2012 when he hauled in 73 balls for 757 yards so this is a quick drop out of favor. He should find a job somewhere.
05:49 PM
K Orton (BUF)

Orton To Push EJ Manuel For Starting Gig
Quarterback Kyle Orton was signed by the Buffalo Bills

Fantasy Spin:
Orton is a solid backup, but not a starter anymore. Hoperfully this isn't a sign the team is concerned about E.J. Manuel's ability to run the offense.

B Green-Ellis (FA)
G Bernard (CIN)

Green-Ellis Cut By Bengals
Fantasy owners don't have to worry about BenJarvus Green-Ellis taking carries from Giovani Bernard or Jeremy Hill as he was cut Friday from the 53-man roster.

Fantasy Spin:
Giovani Bernard and rookie Jeremy Hill have shown in preseason they can get the job done and both have solid fantasy value. Bernard is the starter and is even more valuable in PPR leagues, but Hill is going to get plenty of work.
01:28 PM
M Schaub (OAK)

Schaub May Not Be Ready For Week 1
Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub has been dealing with elbow soreness and a solid run by rookie Derek Carr has put put Schaub's Week 1 start in jeopardy.

Fantasy Spin:
Schaub has completed just 24-of-47 (51.1%) for 218 yards (4.6 ypa) with zero touchdowns and one interception this season. At this point I'd rather my fantasy roster had Carr over Schaub.
12:01 PM
M Bryant (PHI)

Martavis Bryant Sufferes Shoulder Sprain

Pittsburgh wideout Martavis Bryant suffered a right AC shoulder sprain in the final exhibition game, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.



Fantasy Spin:

Bryant was well down the depth chart and not on fantasy radar screen. It's Antonio Brown and a bunch of question marks headed by Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore and the always under-producing Darrius Heyward-Bey.

11:58 AM
J Hill (CIN)

Rookie Jeremy Hill Looked Dominant In 4th Preseason Game

Bengals running back Jeremy Hill rushed 20 times for 90 yards and caught all six of his targets for 70 yards in Cincinnati's preseason finale Thursday.



Fantasy Spin:

Hill was impressive as the every-down back with Gio Bernard resting. He did leave the game with an elbow injury but returned to action. We are still unsure how Hill will be used, so he is not worth starting Week 1, but he looks to be at least a very capable handcuff.

11:56 AM
S Watkins (BUF)

Sammy Watkins Dealing With Rib Injury...Again

Buffalo rookie receiver Sammy Watkins left Thursday's preseason finale with a rib injury.



Fantasy Spin:

Watkins suffered the injury on a slant pattern where quarterback E.J. Manuel "stared him down" and then over threw him by "a good yard and a half". It's unclear if this is a reaggravation of his previous injury or if this is a new rib injury for Watkins. The receiver suffered bruised ribs in the last preseason game.

03:01 AM

Tim Wright Heavily Involved In Patriots 4th Preseason Game
Patriots tight end Tim Wright caught 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants.

Fantasy Spin:
Wright worked with the second-team offense and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The new Patriots tight end has enough talent to earn more playing time with the starters, but as of Week 1, he is just one of many potential targets for Tom Brady.
