LeGarrette Blount rushed five times for 26 yards and caught all three of his targets for 16 yards Friday night against the Panthers.

The real story of the night was Tyler Gaffney, who started the game and rotated series with Blount all night. Blount did his best to make his claim for the starting job, including a long gain which he ended by hurdling Tre Boston, but it's clear his spot atop the depth chart is at the very least contested. Blount has RB2 upside with Dion Lewis (knee) sidelined, but he needs to solidify his role.

Doug Martin rushed four times for 18 yards in the Bucs' third preseason game Friday.

Jameis Winston completed 16-of-25 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' third preseason game against the Browns.

He added two carries for nine yards. The Bucs opened the night in no-huddle, and Winston looked extremely comfortable in the hurry-up offense. Coach Dirk Koetter got him on the move on rollouts and bootlegs, letting Winston find open space to hit Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans for numerous chunk gains. Jackson posted a 4078 line, and Evans exploded for 5-115-1, catching a 49-yard bomb behind Justin Gilbert on a 49-yard gain and then leaping over the smaller Jamar Taylor for a 34-yard touchdown to finish the same drive. Winston's other score went to Charles Sims. The Browns didn't put up much of a fight, but Winston was flawless on Friday.

Tyler Gaffney rushed seven times for 33 yards Friday night against the Panthers.

Gaffney started the game over LeGarrette Blount and ended up splitting possessions with the veteran while the first-team offense was on the field. He took advantage of the opportunity, sprinting off the left side for a 14-yard gain on his first carry and opening a touchdown drive with a 15-yard scamper. Gaffney has steadily been earning work with the first-team offense, and he now looks like a legitimate threat to Blount's workload. He is worth a look late even in standard formats.

Mark Ingram rushed seven times for 17 yards and missed his lone target in the Saints' third preseason game Friday night.

The stats weren't there, but the Saints' offensive line got bullied in the trenches by Pittsburgh's defensive front. Perhaps most notably, Ingram essentially rotated with C.J. Spiller on the first-team offense. Indications are Spiller could have a bigger role than expected to open the year. Ingram remains the lead back and will gobble up goal-line chances in a high-scoring offense.

Steelers RE Cameron Heyward was carted off the field with an ankle or foot injury in Friday night's third preseason game.

The extent of Heyward's injury is unknown, but his loss would be significant for any amount of time. Heyward is coming off a seven-sack season and also excels in run defense. The Steelers lost NT Steve McLendon in free agency.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 9-of-15 passes for 57 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night.

Garoppolo got the start, but he only played three possessions before giving up the reins to Tom Brady, who immediately led the team on two scoring drives. Garoppolo took back over for a couple possessions on both sides of the half. Garoppolo was not terrible Friday night, but he seemed to struggle when pressured, missed a couple open receivers down field, and should have turned the ball over at least twice. He should be a serviceable starter while Brady is suspended, but it is unlikely Garoppolo puts up big fantasy numbers. He is certainly not worth using Week 1 against the Cardinals.

Gary Barnidge caught 2-of-3 targets for six yards in the Browns' third preseason game.

With Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman making their first appearances of the preseason, Barnidge took a bit of a back seat. If Barnidge is done for the preseason, he ends it catching 6-of-9 targets for 39 yards and one touchdown. Once the Browns field all three of Gordon, Coleman, and Terrelle Pryor, Barnidge's targets may suffer. Barnidge is more of a mid-to-low TE1.
