Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught a 14-yard pass in the Bucs' third preseason game.
ASJ was targeted two times on the night. His grab was an impressive one down the seam where he was upended at the end of the play. Through three preseason games, Seferian-Jenkins has caught just 2-of-5 targets for 25 yards. It's a bit concerning when Jameis Winston has attempted 47 passes. ASJ is going to be a distant third in line for targets behind both Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.
Brandon Marshall secured three catches for 33 yards in Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants.
He led the Jets with five targets in the first half. Marshall stiff-armed his way to his longest gain of the night, a 16-yard completion in the second quarter. He’ll wrap up this year's preseason slate with four grabs for 79 yards. Marshall is hoping for a bounce-back season after a disappointing 2014 campaign with Chicago (61 catches, 721 yards).
Matt Forte had six carries for 16 yards in Saturday's third preseason game.
He was targeted twice, but didn't have any catches. Forte is expected to see a bigger rushing workload and smaller pass-game role under OC Adam Gase, making him more of a low-end RB1. He'e averaged just 2.86 YPC in two preseason games. Forte has some decline concerns entering his age-30 season.
Terrance Williams caught 1-of-2 targets for a 60-yard touchdown in Saturday's preseason game.
Williams' score was the play of the game. The third-year wideout caught a simple crossing route in the middle of five defenders, exploding untouched for the score. He finishes the preseason with three grabs for 88 yards and a touchdown. Williams remains a boom-or-bust WR3 for 2015. He's more realistically a WR4.
Vincent Jackson caught two passes for 38 yards in the Bucs' third preseason game.
He was targeted five times with Mike Evans (hamstring) sitting this one out. Jackson's big gain was a 26-yard pickup that led directly to Doug Martin's 19-yard touchdown run on the next play. After three preseason games, Jackson has caught 4-of-8 targets for 94 yards. Evans and Jackson are both elite field stretchers. Jackson should benefit from (hopefully) better QB play this season.
Alfred Morris rushed seven times for four yards in the Redskins' third preseason game.
The poor performance was not Morris' fault as the Ravens' defensive line lived in Washington's backfield. Morris clearly ran ahead of Matt Jones and even got involved in the passing game with two catches for six yards. Morris' upside is capped by the offense, but he is a solid RB2.
Eric Decker reeled in three catches for 52 yards and a touchdown in Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants.
He also muffed a punt but was able to recover it. Decker got the Jets on the board with an 18-yard touchdown on a nice find by Ryan Fitzpatrick. He followed that up with a nice grab in traffic, bouncing off a defender for a first down. Decker came into Saturday’s game with only two catches this preseason. He’s going to have a major role opposite Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
Darren McFadden rushed four times for 37 yards in Saturday's preseason game, adding a six-yard reception.
McFadden was the third back in the game after Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar, but all of his touches came with Tony Romo still in the game. DMC looked fast, finding the edge with ease. He ripped off gains of three, 13, six and 15. Of course, looking good has been the exception, not the rule, for DMC since 2011. He's No. 3 on the depth chart, but could put early heat on Dunbar for change-of-pace duties.
