Cowboys RB Gus Johnson rushed five times for 12 yards in Saturday's preseason game.
He "added" a zero-yard reception. The Cowboys' No. 4 back now has 21 carries for only 71 yards (3.38 YPC) through three preseason games. He should get major run in Thursday's finale.
Zac Stacy pounded his way to 60 yards on 13 carries in Saturday’s preseason game against the Giants.
Stacy caught a 24-yard touchdown pass on a play the Giants forgot to defend. The bruising 224-pounder also punched in a two-point conversion. Though he hasn’t improved his position on the team’s depth chart, Stacy has probably done enough to secure a roster spot. He isn’t worth a late-round flyer.
Matt Jones rushed seven times for 57 yards in the Redskins' third preseason game.
He added one catch for 17 yards. Jones had much more success against the second-team defense than Alfred Morris had against the first, but he ran clearly behind Alf in this game and saw the field after Chris Thompson as well. Jones has the talent to put pressure on Morris, but he has not climbed him on the depth chart yet. Jones has 139 yards on 20 carries (6.95 YPC) this preseason.
A.J. Green had two catches for 19 yards in the Bengals' third preseason game.
Green barely played after Andy Dalton went down with a neck injury. He'll finish the preseason with five catches for 59 yards. Green is locked in as a top-ten wideout.
A.J. Jenkins was held without a catch on one target in Saturday's preseason game.
With Dez Bryant sidelined, Jenkins got some run with the first-team offense, but he has just two catches for 40 yards through three preseason games. He should see some snaps in Thursday's finale. Jenkins is far from a lock for the 53-man roster.
Shane Vereen netted nine yards on three carries while also grabbing three catches for 30 yards in Saturday’s preseason loss to the Jets.
Most of Vereen’s receiving output came on a 19-yard catch that was aided by great edge blocking. Vereen certainly has the chops to be a useful fantasy contributor but his inconsistent usage makes him a tough sell at his current ninth-round ADP. For fantasy purposes, he’s the least appealing of the Giants’ three primary backfield options.
Darren Sproles had two catches for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' third preseason game.
Sproles scored on a eight-yard wheel route on the Eagles' opening drive. He later had a 33-yard catch and run. Sproles doesn't project as more than a low-volume receiving back behind DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews.
Martellus Bennett caught seven passes for 45 yards in Saturday's third preseason game.
With the Bears top three receivers sidelined, Jay Cutler locked on to Bennett for seven targets. He continues to have a strong preseason, posting 11 catches for 94 yards. Bennett should be drafted as a mid-to-high TE1.
