Cecil Shorts was held without a catch in his preseason debut.
Shorts rotated with Allen Hurns in two-wide sets and didn't appear fully healthy. He finished with two targets in the passing game. Shorts has potential WR3 value, but comes with red flag injury risks. He's currently going in the eleventh round in fantasy drafts.
Marqise Lee had three catches for 10 yards in the Friday night's preseason game.
Lee started and got the majority of work in two-wide sets. It was a step back after he secured all four of his targets and found the end-zone last week. Lee was manhandled on his blocking assignments and took a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the second quarter. He has a 7/37/1 line in two preseason starts. Lee has a chance to lead the Jaguars in receiving this year, but is going to struggle with consistency. He's a WR4/5 flier.
Santonio Holmes caught 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in the Bears' third preseason game Friday night at Seattle.
Josh Morgan opened the game as Chicago's No. 3 receiver, but Holmes mixed in with the first-team offense in the second quarter. He primarily ran with the twos, however, and made his first catch in a Bears uniform on a third-quarter slant for a gain of seven. Holmes is unlikely to make much fantasy noise in Chicago, but he definitely has a chance to help the Bears on the field.
Bears rookie RB Ka'Deem Carey rushed four times for 15 yards and caught four passes for 27 yards in Friday night's preseason game at Seattle.
After playing behind both Matt Forte and Shaun Draughn in Chicago's first two preseason games, Carey was the No. 2 back on Friday night, behind only Forte. The Bears clearly want Carey to win their primary backup job, although he has struggled throughout August, managing 74 yards on 27 carries (2.74 YPC) two three exhibition affairs. Carey has not impressed us from a Dynasty perspective.
Undrafted rookie CB Malcolm Butler started the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night.
Butler struggled, getting beaten twice by fellow rookie Kelvin Benjamin. He has played well this preseason, though, and should earn a roster spot with Brandon Browner suspended the first four games of the season.
Josh Morgan caught 3-of-5 targets for 48 yards in the Bears' third preseason game Friday night in Seattle.
Morgan worked as the Bears' No. 3 receiver, ahead of Santonio Holmes, although that could be a temporary assignment for the ex-Redskin and 49er. Holmes should eventually prove the more dynamic option in three-wideout sets.
Bears S Chris Conte suffered a concussion in Friday night's preseason game.
It's a bad break for Conte, whose roster chances may be slipping way. He just recently returned to practice after major offseason shoulder surgery.
Robert Turbin rushed six times for 26 yards and caught a four-yard pass in Seattle's third preseason game Friday night against the Bears.
He has 112 yards on 22 carries in the preseason. Turbin rotated with Christine Michael against Chicago after Marshawn Lynch handled Seattle's first drive. Michael was the primary back in the red zone and showed well in blitz pickup. As C-Mike is Seattle's most talented runner, Turbin should be feeling the heat. We suspect Turbin and Michael would form something of a timeshare in the event of a Lynch injury, making the Seahawks' starter fairly difficult to handcuff. Turbin may be the more complete back, but Michael would be the higher-ceiling option.
