Andre Johnson hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 65 yards Saturday night against the Raiders.
Johnson saw plenty of work with the first-team offense, recording all three of his catches on the second possession. He also was targeted on a fade in the back corner of the end zone. Johnson showed he was out of gas last season, but the Titans seem intent on given him a role. We will see how long that lasts.
C.J. Anderson rushed 11 times for 50 yards in the Broncos' third preseason game Saturday night.
His preseason rushing stats stand at 19-88-1 (4.63 YPC). Although Devontae Booker mixed in a bit more with the first-team offense Saturday, Anderson remained the clear feature back with the ones. Anderson has disappointed before, but bear in mind his ADP has fallen by nearly three rounds since last year. If Anderson stays healthy, the 25-year-old will be utilized heavily.
Larry Donnell caught 1-of-2 targets for eight yards in Saturday's preseason game.
There hasn't been much clarity to Donnell's "battle" with Will Tye, but Donnell seemed to spend more time with the first-team offense this evening. His catch tonight was his first of the summer. If nothing else, Donnell is going to remain a big body who can box out defenders in the red zone, but it's quite possible he and Tye cancel each other out from a TE2 perspective.
Will Tye caught 2-of-2 targets for -2 yards in Saturday's preseason game.
Larry Donnell spent more time with the first-team offense, but Tye also got some run with the 1s before catching a pass from Ryan Nassib. Donnell appears to be ahead in the competition for No. 1 duties, but hasn't exactly separated. Both players figure to have Week 1 roles, making for a situation to avoid for TE2 streamers.
Harry Douglas was not targeted in the Titans' third preseason game.
He did gain eight yards on the ground after Marcus Mariota pitched to him at the end of a scramble. Despite seeing no targets, Douglas worked plenty with the first-team offense. With Kendall Wright unable to get healthy, Douglas could open the season as the starter in the slot.
Derrick Henry rushed 12 times for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' third preseason game.
He added eight yards on one catch. Henry clearly worked behind DeMarco Murray, who dominated the first three possessions, but he still put on a show when he got on the field. Henry turned 10 touches into 44 yards on his first series of the game, capping a 14-play drive with a three-yard touchdown. The rookie has been impressive all preseason, but he is still well behind Murray in the pecking order. That makes his seventh-round ADP tough to swallow.
Frank Gore managed six yards on four carries and missed his lone target in the Colts' third preseason game.
The Colts' line managed no push against Philadelphia's underrated defensive front, so Gore went nowhere during his short stay on the field. More troubling, the Colts lost stud LG Jack Mewhort to a season-ending torn ACL. We have liked Gore as a value pick all offseason, but that is contingent on Indy's offense rebounding and Andrew Luck staying healthy. The line is a real issue.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Saturday night he believes Kenneth Dixon's knee injury is "not overly serious."
The Ravens are sending Dixon for a Sunday MRI to be sure. Before going down, Dixon looked terrific with 41 yards on six carries, and afterward a Ravens beat writer said Dixon has looked like one of Baltimore's top runners in camp. Dixon appeared to have received a depth chart promotion, running with the first-team offense. He should be considered questionable for Week 1.
