Marvin Jones caught 3-of-6 targets for 25 yards in the Lions' third preseason game.
Jones was more involved than Golden Tate and Anquan Boldin. He was featured in the red-zone, but couldn't come down with either of his targets. The Lions should be one of the most pass heavy teams in the league, but they don't have a true No. 1 wideout. Jones will open the season opposite Tate in two-wide sets.
Eli Manning completed 10-of-15 passes for 65 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.
It was a horrendous performance, but Eli was under constant duress from a hungry-looking Jets defense. He was lucky to escape without multiple picks, though the ball that did get intercepted was alligator armed by Odell Beckham. Manning finishes August having completed 14-of-24 throws for 109 yards (4.54 YPA), zero scores and tonight's pick. The rough preseason is inconsequential for a player who remains a mid-range QB1 thanks in large part to Beckham's all-world playmaking.
Darren Sproles caught his lone target for a gain of eight in the Eagles' third preseason game.
The Eagles gave Kenjon Barner and rookie Wendell Smallwood looks with the first-team offense on Saturday night, but not until after Ryan Mathews and Sproles were rested. Sproles is Philadelphia's third-down back with the potential for a little more. He's one of the better PPR value picks in the late rounds.
Anquan Boldin caught 3-of-5 targets for 22 yards in Detroit's third preseason game.
Boldin got most of his targets on third down and in the red-zone. He projects as Detroit's primary underneath receiver to open the season. Boldin has five catches for 59 yards through three preseason games.
DeMarco Murray rushed eight times for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' third preseason game Saturday night.
Murray got the start and dominated snaps on the first three series. He put a good move on a defender in the hole to create a 16-yard gain on his first run, and he exploited a big hole for a 17-yard gain off the right side to open the second quarter. He also capped the opening drive with a one-yard score on his second attempt from inside the five. Murray has been outplayed by Derrick Henry this preseason, but he is still firmly entrenched atop the depth chart. Even so, he is overvalued early in the fourth round.
Ryan Mathews rushed for 31 yards on three carries in the Eagles' third preseason game.
As expected, he was the first-team early-down back with Darren Sproles primarily playing on third downs. Talent has never been an obstacle for Mathews in his career. If he stays healthy, he will crush his sixth-round ADP.
T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-5 targets for 38 yards in the Colts' third preseason game.
Hilton played a little under two quarters, while Donte Moncrief got run into the second half. Andrew Luck and Hilton looked to be in sync as expected. Although Moncrief is the better value in fantasy drafts, Hilton's raw stats projection is higher. He's worth targeting as a borderline WR1.
Eric Decker caught 1-of-5 targets for a 22-yard touchdown in Saturday's preseason game.
The red zone king beat sticky coverage from Janoris Jenkins on his score. Decker could have had another catch or two, but was victimized by inaccurate Ryan Fitzpatrick throws. He finishes August with two grabs for 35 yards and tonight's score. With at least 10 touchdowns in 3-of-4 seasons, Decker is a rock-solid WR2 for an offense that should throw a ton in 2016.
