Eagles RB Matthew Tucker rushed 10 times for 46 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday night's third preseason game.

He worked as Philly's No. 3 tailback behind LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles, although Chris Polk (hamstring) remains sidelined. Tucker is on the bubble, but has helped himself with a strong August, compiling 18 runs for 86 yards (4.78 YPC) and a preseason-NFL-high four rushing TDs, to go with a 15-yard catch. With McCoy, Sproles, and probably Polk locked in, Tucker, Henry Josey, and Kenjon Barner are likely vying for one roster spot.

Brent Celek caught two passes for 41 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Aug 21 - 10:40 PM

Antonio Brown caught three passes for 59 yards in the Steelers' regular-season dress rehearsal against the Eagles.

Brown drew five targets. His longest catch, 22 yards, was a ball he pulled off a defender's back. He finishes the preseason with seven catches for 193 yards. Locked and loaded as the No. 1 receiver for an offense committed to the no-huddle, Brown is somehow shaping up as a value pick one year after finishing second in both receptions and receiving yards. He's generally the WR9 in fantasy drafts.

Riley Cooper caught three passes for 25 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

It was Cooper's preseason debut after he missed the Eagles' first two games with a minor foot issue. Cooper could have had a touchdown, but committed a drop in the end zone. Although Cooper is locked into two-receiver sets, he's a deep threat who will remain a boom-or-bust WR3/4 for fantasy purposes.

Darren Sproles rushed six times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's regular-season dress rehearsal, adding one catch for four yards.

Mixing in with LeSean McCoy, Sproles got work between the tackles after Shady departed with a minor thumb injury. Coach Chip Kelly has been insistent that he views Sproles first-and-foremost as a running back, but catching passes remains where he'll make his biggest impact. He finishes the preseason with nine carries for 44 yards, and three catches for 17 yards. He's an RB4, though a viable FLEX play in PPR leagues.
Aug 21 - 10:05 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 15-of-24 passes for 157 yards, a touchdown and interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Big Ben's score, a 27-yard strike to Heath Miller, came deep into the second half against the Eagles' second-team defense. Roethlisberger and the Steelers' first-team struggled mightily against Philly's starters, with Big Ben tossing a horrid pick on an ill-advised freelance. He also showed noticeably-little chemistry with No. 2 receiver Markus Wheaton. Barring a surprise appearance in the Steelers' preseason finale, Roethlisberger finishes August 24-of-37 for 328 yards (8.86 YPA), three scores and a pick. He's a low-end QB1 with top-eight upside.

Jordan Matthews caught two passes for 16 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

With Jeremy Maclin back in the picture, Matthews was limited to three targets one week after exploding for 9/104 on nine looks. The good news is, he ran in three-wide sets with the first-team offense, and lined up both out of the slot and in the backfield. There's a chance Matthews could get some run in next week's preseason finale, but if not, Philly's slot receiver finishes August with 15 catches for 134 yards. He's an upside WR4/5.
Aug 21 - 9:50 PM

Steelers OLB Jason Worilds was forced from Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles with a right knee injury, and will not return.

Worilds suffered the injury on a third-quarter sack of Mark Sanchez. The severity is unclear. If it's in any way serious, the Steelers are going to be kicking themselves for playing one of their most-important defenders so deep into an exhibition game. With Worilds playing under the franchise tag, the sides have been discussing a long-term deal.
