Shane Vereen started the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night, rushing six times for 18 yards and hauling in five passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns.

Vereen was on the field for seven of the Patriots' first eight offensive snaps, and played 26 snaps to Stevan Ridley's six in the first half. After only seeing three touches through the first two preseason games, Vereen's heavy usage against the Panthers was very encouraging. He is a solid RB2 in PPR formats, and should be a low-end RB2 or flex in standard formats as well.

Matt Forte rushed three times for 17 yards in the Bears' third preseason game Friday night.

Coach Marc Trestman smartly used Forte briefly, in an effort to keep him healthy for the regular season. Forte entered this game with seven carries for -7 yards on the preseason, so his August stats stand at 10-10 on the ground. He has three catches for 22 yards. The lack of preseason rushing success is not a regular season concern. Forte is a consensus top-three fantasy pick.

Andre Williams rushed 11 times for 49 yards and a touchdown in Friday's regular-season dress rehearsal.

It's a nice stat line, but less impressive when you realize Williams got out-touched 14-1 by Rashad Jennings in the first half. Neither player got a goal-line look while Eli Manning was still in the game. Williams' score came with 6:12 remaining. He's now up to 33 carries for 151 yards (4.57 YPC) and two touchdowns through four preseason games. Williams should get some looks in the red zone, but opens the season as nothing more than an RB4 in re-draft leagues.

Theo Riddick had two carries for one yard in Friday night's preseason game against the Jaguars, adding two catches for six yards.

The box-score stats are misleading. Riddick saw time with the first team and played on Detroit's third series, ahead of Mikel Leshoure. He lined up as a receiver in four-wide sets and was featured in dual-back packages with Joique Bell. Riddick had a red-zone carry over Bell in the second quarter. OC Joe Lombardi appears to be employing a three-back committee similar to the Saints. Reggie Bush and Bell owners can consider handcuffing with Riddick in the late rounds.

James Starks rushed seven times for nine yards and caught two passes for 32 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

We're not concerned with Starks' inefficient night on the ground, but we are starting to get slightly concerned with DuJuan Harris. Harris mixed with Starks after Eddie Lacy left for the night and looked really sharp (12 carries, 56 yards and two catches for 42 yards). Starks, who has 17 carries for 67 yards with one touchdown this preseason, may lose a few touches to Harris if Lacy goes down at any point this year.

Adrien Robinson wasn't targeted in Friday's regular-season dress rehearsal against the Jets.

It means Robinson now has just three catches for 68 yards through four preseason games. He's squarely on the roster bubble.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 9-of-12 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' third preseason game.

Garoppolo saw more playing time than Ryan Mallett, but was the third quarterback through the rotation Friday night. Garoppolo has been more poised in the pocket than he was in college throughout the entire preseason, and continued to look calm under pressure against the Panthers. Garoppolo has completed 24-of-37 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns this preseason.
Aug 22 - 11:06 PM

Larry Donnell came off the bench behind Kellen Davis in Friday's preseason game, but spent time with the first-team offense.

Donnell had been "starting." The reality is, the Giants don't have a starter at tight end. Donnell has three catches for 26 yards through four preseason games. He's miles from fantasy relevance.
