A Franks (MIA)

Andrew Franks keeps starting job
The Dolphins ranked last in field goal attempts in 2015. They averaged 19.4 points a game finishing the season ranked 27th in total points scored. Franks only had 16 field goal attempts, making 18, putting him at 81 percent.

Fantasy Spin:
This was expected news for Andrew Franks, as he hadn't really been threatened by rookie Marshall Koehn.
11:03 PM
C McCain (MIA)

Chris McCain traded to the Saints
The Dolphins are deep at the position so it was a smart business decision. McCain wasn't going to supplant Mario Williams, and the Dolphins are still hanging their hopes on Cameron Wake who has been replacing Jason Jones on passing downs.

Fantasy Spin:
Defensive end Chris McCain has been traded to the New Orleans Saints, in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.

K Wright (TEN)

Kendall Wright re-injures hamstring
Wright is going to have a hard press time trying to find playing time if he can't get on the field. As of now, Wright is at best a late round flyer as Sharp, Mathews and Johnson seem to have a hold of things in the Titans WR department.

Fantasy Spin:
On his first day back at practice after a month-long injury absence, Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright re-injured his left hamstring while running a short pass route
10:07 PM
J Watt (HOU)

J.J. Watt has 'a chance' to return for Week 1
Houston's D/ST should be one of the first five units selected in the fantasy draft. With Watt expected to return early in the campaign and Jadeveon Clowney appearing to come into his own, they have the capability to once again finish as a top 10 D/ST in 2016.

Fantasy Spin:
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien told the media that he "can definitely see" DE J.J. Watt (back) playing in the season opener. "J.J. is progressing well, O'Brien said. "He's made a lot of progress the last couple of weeks."

J Smith (DAL)

Jaylon Smith a 'lock' to begin season on NFI list
Helman is also suggesting that the Smith will likely be headed to injured reserve after the six-weeks expire while on the NFI list in the regular season. The second-round pick is not expected to take the field until the 2017 campaign barring any further setbacks with his knee.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys beat writer David Helman believes that LB Jaylon Smith (knee) is a "lock" to begin the 2016 season on the NFI list.
09:43 PM
A Lee (SFO)

Andy Lee traded to Panthers
The Browns and Panthers swapped punters just under two weeks away from the 2016 season. Lee is a 12-year veteran in the NFL and has never missed a game in his career.

Fantasy Spin:
The Carolina Panthers have traded P Kasey Redfern and a fourth round draft pick in 2018 to the Cleveland Browns for P Andy Lee.
09:39 PM
B Walsh (MIN)

Blair Walsh perfect against Chargers
Walsh is typically a nice fantasy option especially if the Vikings' offense has improved and can sustain more drives into FG territory. Look for him to finish as a top-10 kicker in 2016

Fantasy Spin:
Blair Walsh made 3-of-3 FGs against Chargers. He made two FGs from 23 yards and one 33-yard FG.
09:32 PM
C Johnson (MIN)

Charles Johnson has two catches against Chargers
Johnson is currently starting alongside Stefon Diggs in two WR sets. He is a boom or bust option and will continually be pushed by newcomer Laquon Treadwell.

Fantasy Spin:
Charles Johnson caught two passes for 25 yards. He was also targeted on an errant deep throw into the end zone.
09:26 PM
K Rudolph (MIN)

Kyle Rudolph has a big day
Rudolph is going undrafted and is a TD-dependent streaming option. He is a huge red zone target and obviously has a nice rapport with Bridgewater making him a TE2 with upside.

Fantasy Spin:
Kyle Rudolph caught three passes for 56 yards and a TD. He did show a lack of effort on a drop but finished strong as Teddy Bridgewater's second option behind Stefon Diggs.
09:21 PM
T Bridgewater (MIN)

Teddy Bridgewater solid against Chargers
Bridgewater was in complete control and his timing with his receivers looked impeccable. He has not been a reliable fantasy player in the past, but could potentially help owners on bye weeks.

Fantasy Spin:
Teddy Bridgewater completed 12-of-16 passes for 161 yards and a TD against the Chargers. He also showed elusiveness on a 22-yard run.
07:41 PM
M Goodwin (BUF)

Marquise Goodwin returns to practice
Goodwin had been the Bills' No. 3 wide receiver before his injury, and this is a positive step as he prepares for the season. Sammy Watkins is Buffalo's only viable fantasy wide receiver at this time.

Fantasy Spin:
Speedy Buffalo receiver Marquise Goodwin practiced on a limited basis Monday, doing individual drills and running routes. He's still in concussion protocol. Bills coach Rex Ryan said "he’s progressing pretty nicely."
07:09 PM
J Janis (GBP)

Jeff Janis returns to practice 8/29/16
Having a club on your hand is no easy task for a receiver, but none other than Jeff Janis was back at practice running routes and working out with the team. He was seen catching a pass with the club during practice, and running routes off to the side with just a splint after practice. This puts him ahead of schedule and is great news as a sign towards his availability come Week 1. However, with this set back, minor as though it may be, Janis will likely be taking a back seat in the WR competition behind Jared Abbredaris and incumbent Davante Adams starting Week 1. Final roster cuts could bring more clarity, but until further notice Janis is not worth owning in fantasy at this point.

Fantasy Spin:
Jeff Janis, who fractured a bone in his right hand on Aug. 10, is back at practice for the first time. He has a large club cast on.
07:01 PM
E Elliott (DAL)

Ezekiel Elliott speaks on 'bad decision'
Despite the scrutiny about his decisions before the Seattle game last week, Elliott did showcase his abilities against a stout Seahawks defense later that night. The rookie rusher has one of the NFL's top front fives to run behind which bodes well for his statistical outlook for the upcoming fantasy football campaign. Elliott should be considered a mid-range RB1 who's upside is through the roof on a Cowboys team that could heavily rely on the running game with Tony Romo sidelined for what could be the first half of the season.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott created quite the buzz after visiting a marijuana dispensary in Seattle and on Monday, he spoke about the issue for the first time. "It was a bad decision," Elliott said via the Dallas Morning News. "Just seen it walking around. Was curious. I didn't really think about it before I went in, what the repercussions could have been. It wasn't like I was trying to hide it or anything."
06:57 PM
J Bosa (SDC)

Joey Bosa finally signs with Chargers
No word yet on the contract language, but it's a relief to finally see this drama end. Bosa is unlikely to make a big impact early in the season, considering his limited knowledge of the playbook after missing most of the summer with the team. However, he could make an impact in the second half of the season and help bolster the Chargers' pass rush.

Fantasy Spin:
Third-overall pick Joey Bosa has finally signed his rookie contract with the San Diego Chargers, according to reports.
06:43 PM
D Bryant (DAL)

Dez Bryant feels 'unstoppable'
Despite the fact that Tony Romo will reportedly be sidelined until mid-season, Bryant should remain a WR1 in the upcoming fantasy football campaign. Bryant had already showcased his rapport with Dak Prescott and caught a pair of touchdowns from the rookie in the preseason, which could translate into regular season play. The Cowboys open the 2016 regular season against a Giants defense that spent a lot of money in free agency to upgrade. However, it could take some time for the unit to gel together which bodes well for Bryant'sstatistical outlook for Week 1.

Fantasy Spin:
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant told the media that he feels "unstoppable" on the field on Sunday just one week after experiencing concussion-like symptoms during practice. "I'm going to catch anything that's thrown to me," Bryant said via the Dallas Morning News.
