Bills DT Kyle Williams left Friday's preseason game against the Browns with a right knee injury.

He left the stadium wearing a full-length brace on his right leg. Friday was a brutal injury night for the Bills, who also lost quarterback A.J. McCarron to a broken collarbone. The 35-year-old registered one tackle prior to exiting.

Chiefs CB Steven Nelson left Friday's preseason game against the Falcons with a concussion.

He exited in the first quarter after getting kicked in the head by Austin Hooper. It's hard to put a timeline on brain injuries, though Nelson should have a chance to be ready for the start of the regular season in three weeks. When healthy, Nelson will likely start opposite David Amerson with Kendall Fuller manning the slot.

C.J. Anderson tallied 39 yards on eight carries while also snaring two catches for nine yards Friday in the Panthers’ preseason game against the Dolphins.

Christian McCaffrey dominated touches early as Anderson didn’t see his first carry until midway through the second quarter. Anderson did break off one long run—that came on an 18-yard gallop early in the third quarter—but he averaged just three yards on his other seven carries. The 27-year-old will certainly have a role this year, but it’s clear as day that McCaffrey is the back to own in Carolina.

Cameron Meredith failed to reel in his lone target Friday in the Saints’ second preseason game against the Cardinals.

He dropped a pass from Taysom Hill on the Saints’ opening drive, which wound up in the hands of Cardinals linebacker Haason Reddick for an interception. The former Bear hasn’t practiced much this summer and his rust was evident Friday night. Meredith should benefit from playing with future Hall of Famer Drew Brees, but he’s also coming off an ACL tear that sidelined him for all of 2017. Given these factors, the 25-year-old makes for a risky fantasy investment.

Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game versus the Bills.

Chubb added two receptions for zero yards in the receiving game. A week after finding no room to run, Chubb still ran into offensive issues on Friday, having runs of 14 and 17 yards surround a handful of carries where he was hit in the backfield. Chubb's best run came on a 17-yard scamper off the left side where he went out of bounds at the 1-yard line, setting up his own touchdown plunge three plays later. Chubb is the clear backup to Carlos Hyde and is even behind Duke Johnson for rushing volume. Chubb is nothing but a late-round stash at this stage for fantasy purposes.

Christian Kirk caught 4-of-6 passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' second preseason game.

Kirk scored on an end-zone catch-in-traffic from Josh Rosen on the Cardinals' third series. He showed good rapport with Rosen, also adding a 21-yard catch later in the game. It's a needed breakout after Kirk's quiet preseason debut. With Brice Butler sidelined, Kirk is trending toward opening the year in three-wide sets.
Aug 17 - 10:38 PM

Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 7-of-13 passes for 75 yards with nine yards rushing on four attempts in Friday's preseason game versus the Bills.

Mayfield's 5.6 yards per attempt were a far cry from his 10.6 yards per attempt in his debut a week ago. Although he started the game slowly, the Browns' second-team offensive line did him no favors early on. Mayfield and the Browns went three-and-out on his first three possessions before he led scoring drives on each of his final two drives of the night. He also lost potential passing scores to an offensive pass interference penalty and another on a replay review. With Tyrod Taylor the unquestioned starter entering the season, Mayfield will look to build on an overall positive start to the preseason next Thursday versus the Eagles.
Aug 17 - 10:24 PM

Josh Rosen completed 10-of-16 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' second preseason game.

Rosen came in on the third series after taking a beating behind the second-team offense line last week. He rebounded from his rough debut, throwing a 13-yard strike to Christian Kirk on his first drive. Sam Bradford is locked in as the Cardinals' Week 1 starter, but there's a lot to like with Rosen's post-draft development. Rosen may need a Bradford injury to see rookie-year starts.

LeGarrette Blount contributed 32 yards on 11 carries Friday in the Lions’ second preseason game against the Giants.

He came up empty on his lone target. All but two of his carries came in the second half. Despite leading the team in rushing yards, Blount was bottled up for the most part, managing a long run of just seven yards. The veteran got the call on fourth-and-two from the Giants’ nine-yard line but failed to get back to the line of scrimmage as the Lions turned it over on downs late in the third quarter. It was surprising to see Blount work with the second unit, though there wasn’t much rhyme or reason to Matt Patricia’s substitution patterns on Friday. It will be interesting to see how Blount is used in next week’s dress rehearsal at Tampa Bay.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught all four of his targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game versus the Falcons.

Hill played the entire first half with the Kansas City starters and was Patrick Mahomes' favorite target. Their final hook up was a 69-yard touchdown where Hill outran and Mahomes out-threw three Atlanta defenders on a pas that traveled 60-plus yards in the air. The play is a reminder of the weekly upside this duo have together as one play can change their fantasy tide at a given moment. Of Hill's 13 career touchdown receptions, 10 have come from 30-yards out or further.

A.J. McCarron suffered a broken collarbone in the Bills' second preseason game against the Browns.

McCarron started the game, went 3-of-6 passing for 12 yards, and is believed to have suffered the injury after taking a hit from behind via Myles Garrett. Collarbone fractures are typically 8-10 week injuries, putting McCarron in contention for one of the Bills' I.R.-designated for return slots around midseason. This injury essentially locks in first-rounder Josh Allen as the Week 1 starter.
Aug 17 - 10:14 PM

Ito Smith had 13 carries for 34 yards in the Falcons' second preseason game.

Smith got some reps with the first-team offense with Devonta Freeman held out. He's had a slow start to the preseason, averaging just 2.3 YPC through two games. Smith's path to carries is blocked by Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but he would have a plug-and-play role if injures arise.
Aug 17 - 10:10 PM

Kerryon Johnson spanned nine yards on four carries while securing his only target for a gain of 10 yards Friday in the Lions’ second preseason game against the Giants.

Johnson was also active on special teams, compiling 19 yards on his lone kick return. The rookie was the second Lions running back to enter the game after Ameer Abdullah, though obviously he wasn’t much of a factor. Johnson is probably the best bet for fantasy success of the Lions’ backfield options, though veteran bruiser LeGarrette Blount and pass-catcher Theo Riddick are both threats to his workload.

Wayne Gallman went for 26 yards and a touchdown on five carries while snagging two catches for nine yards and another touchdown Friday in New York’s second preseason game against the Lions.

Gallman was the second Giants’ ball-carrier to enter the game following veteran Jonathan Stewart (second overall pick Saquon Barkley sat out with a hamstring injury). The 2017 fourth-rounder squandered a goal-line opportunity in the second quarter, losing two yards on the play. However, he made up for that gaffe two plays later by corralling an eight-yard touchdown pass from Davis Webb on third-and-goal. Gallman went back for seconds in the fourth quarter, turning an 11-yard carry from Kyle Lauletta into his second touchdown of the night. Obviously Gallman poses no threat to Barkley, but he could push Stewart for backup reps this year.
Aug 17 - 10:09 PM

Kenyan Drake had eight carries for 54 yards in Miami's second preseason game.

Drake started and had a featured role, racking up 11 touches. His highlight was a 34-yard run that set up a Dolphins' first-half field goal. Miami plans to use a committee of Drake and Frank Gore, but Drake remains the running back to own in fantasy. Drake's workload concerns make him a risk/reward RB2.
