Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said K Garrett Hartley's availability for Week 1 against the Patriots "isn't looking good."

He suffered a hamstring injury Saturday against Buffalo and is headed for an MRI. Hartley signed earlier this month after going down with a torn ACL. It's been a rough camp for Pittsburgh kickers. Free agent Jay Feely worked out with the Steelers on Friday and could be the team's best option with Hartley sidelined.

X-rays on Randall Cobb's injured shoulder came back negative.

He'll have more tests Sunday but it looks like he's going to be okay. Cobb got hurt on his third play from scrimmage Saturday against the Eagles. At first he thought he broke his collarbone but that wasn't the case. "I just caught the ball and was going down to the ground, and I had a guy land on top of me," said Cobb. "It's not what we think it could've been." Cobb isn't sure if he'll be ready for Week 1 against Chicago.

The Washington defense struggled with the Baltimore first-team offense on Saturday, allowing Joe Flacco to throw for 137 yards and touchdown with a 122.9 passer rating.

Washington did come out on top in this contest by a score of 31-13, but the first-team issues are concerning for a team that struggled against the pass in 2014. New offensive coordinator Joe Barry’s defense should be shelved in fantasy leagues and will have a tough time handling the offenses of the NFC East.

The Titans first-team defense gave up 17 points to the Kansas City offense over their first three possessions on Saturday.

The Titans allowed Alex Smith to connect with his two favorite targets as both Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce hauled in touchdown catches early in the game. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said, "We knew it would be tough coming in here and I think we just made too many mistakes early." The Titans D/ST can be avoided in fantasy drafts and despite facing a rookie quarterback in Jameis Winston, will not be recommended for use in Week 1 as the Titans travel to Tampa Bay.

Saints CB Brandon Browner will likely miss Sunday’s game against Houston, giving fellow CB Delvin Breaux a chance to start.

Breaux has turned in a solid offseason and will get a chance to shine on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as the Saints host the Houston Texans. The New Orleans D/ST had a rough 2014 season, but defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will look to turn things around in his third season as the leader of the Saints defense. The Saints D/ST can be safely ignored in fantasy drafts and also draws a rough Week 1 matchup on the road against Arizona.
Aug 30 - 2:17 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers recorded just one sack and zero turnovers on Saturday as they fell to the Cleveland Browns 31-7.

Despite the poor showing, the Bucs D/ST should be in the forefront of the minds of fantasy defense streamers, as Tampa Bay will host the Tennessee Titans in Week 1 of the regular season. The Titans allowed the sixth most sacks among NFL teams in 2014 and will be handing their offense to rookie Marcus Mariota, who may provide a reasonable streaming target as the regular season gets underway.
Aug 30 - 2:15 AM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted big plays as an issue for the Steelers defense after Pittsburgh fell to Buffalo 43-19 in Week 3 of the preseason.

Safety Will Allen told the Post-Gazette, "You better be concerned about it, especially when it’s happening to the first-team defense, or any defense that’s out there." Buffalo started the big play fireworks with bursts from running back Fred Jackson and tight end Charles Clay on their way to a blowout win. The Pittsburgh defense will not be worthy of starting in Week 1 of the regular season as the Steelers travel to Gillette Stadium to face the New England Patriots, despite the absence of Tom Brady.
Aug 30 - 2:14 AM

The St. Louis defense held the Indianapolis Colts to 28 rushing yards on 15 first half carries on Saturday.

It is definitely worth noting that Frank Gore was watching this game from the sidelines, but the effort was still solid from the Rams defense. St. Louis will need a similar showing from its defensive line in Week 1 of the regular season as Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks will visit the Edward Jones Dome. The Rams D/ST is currently being drafted fourth among fantasy defenses and should be a solid group in 2015.
