C.J. Spiller rushed four times for 20 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for -1 yards in the Saints' third preseason game.

The biggest takeaway is Spiller ran extensively with the first-team offense. He also got first-team run in the second week of preseason, making this a recurring theme. Spiller "started" and essentially rotated evenly with Mark Ingram when Drew Brees was in the game. Spiller seemingly came close to breaking a few big runs, but was caught by his shoelace once and dragged down in the open field on another. Spiller has burned fantasy owners plenty in the past, but he's worth a look in the late rounds of PPR leagues. He'd be easy to drop if he does nothing when the real games start.

Tom Brady completed 3-of-9 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown Friday night against the Panthers.

Jimmy Garoppolo got the start, but Brady came on after three possessions for his first work of the preseason. Brady started strong, dropping a dime over Chris Hogan's shoulder for a 33-yard score in the second quarter, but he struggled to get anything going before handing the reins back to Garoppolo late in the first half. Unlikely to see any snaps in the final preseason game, the next time we see Brady should be Week 5 against the Browns.

Willie Snead caught 4-of-4 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' third preseason game.

The Saints' top receiver with Drew Brees in the game, Snead's score came from 17 yards out on a play where he got the best of Steelers rookie S Sean Davis. Snead isn't a sexy fantasy pick, but he plays on a high-octane passing team and is used creatively, getting matchups with linebackers and safeties at times. He's a high-floor investment as a WR3 who can usually be drafted as a WR4.

Robert Griffin III completed just 8-of-14 passes for 119 yards and one touchdown in the Browns' third preseason game Friday night.

The Bucs field one of the least-inspiring pass-rush groups in the league, but they recorded five sacks on RGIII in the first half, while knocking him down a number of other times. They especially got after the quarterback on third down, as coach Hue Jackson dialed up a lot of long-developing plays only to see his offensive line not be able to hold its blocks. RGIII finished the night on a high note, however, hitting Josh Gordon deep for a 43-yard touchdown. Gordon did all the work, though, manhandling pint-sized CB Brent Grimes and adjusting to the ball in the air. Last week, RGIII looked phenomenal. Tonight, he was pummeled. The inconsistency is what keeps him a boom-or-bust QB2.

Tyrod Taylor completed 2-of-5 passes for 11 yards and rushed once for a gain of five in the Bills' third preseason game.

Taylor played very briefly, as the Bills took him out of the game early in favor of E.J. Manuel. Taylor took a sack, and afterwards coach Rex Ryan expressed remorse for putting Taylor out there at all. Taylor recently signed a new six-year, $92 million contract that is actually a one-year deal worth $9.5 million with a 2017 option worth nearly $28 million. The best news for Taylor is Sammy Watkins looked healthy coming off offseason foot surgery.

Kirk Cousins completed 12-of-23 passes for 188 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in one half of action during Friday night's third preseason game.

Cousins chucked an ugly pick on the sideline to kills Redskins' first drive, throwing far outside the numbers off his back foot. He atoned with touchdown passes to Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed, and Ryan Grant, catching fire in the second quarter as the Bills rested more of their first-team defenders. Tonight's stat line was a little better than Cousins played, but he remains one of the premier late-round quarterback picks due to his elite weapons, pass-first offense, and soft schedule in the first half of the season.
Aug 26 - 9:40 PM

Antonio Brown secured 4-of-4 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' third preseason game.

Brown did all of his damage in just over eight minutes of action. The Steelers' offense cut through the Saints' barely-there defense like a hot knife in butter. Brown was Ben Roethlisberger's go-to guy as usual, dusting past Saints rookie CB De'Vante Harris on his 57-yard touchdown. Due to the Steelers' weapons shortage, Brown has the highest raw target projection in the league this season. He should be the consensus 1.01 fantasy pick.
Aug 26 - 9:33 PM

Drew Brees completed 9-of-12 passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' third preseason game.

He also had a 31-yard connection deep down the middle to Coby Fleener wiped out due to a holding call at the line of scrimmage. Brees was sharp as expected, connecting with Willie Snead for his 17-yard touchdown. Brees has a tough schedule this year, but we like him to record another top-five fantasy finish.
