The Patriots defense held the Carolina Panthers offense to just 129 yards of total offense on Saturday.

The New England defense also allowed Carolina to convert just three of nine third-down attempts in the game. The Boston Globe noted the defense of the Patriots as one of their five post-game takeaways and the performance is encouraging for fantasy owners who are eyeballing the New England D/ST as the ninth defense selected in drafts.

Cordarrelle Patterson returned a kickoff 107 yards for a touchdown on Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys.

The athletic Patterson has largely been a disappointment for fantasy owners who were tempted by the receiver’s combination of size and wheels, but he could provide a boost in leagues where points are awarded for special teams contributions. Patterson returned two kicks for scores in 2013 and will likely stack up piles of return yardage this season. The Minnesota D/ST is not quite on the fantasy draft radar but bonuses like this from the return game could help make the unit worth considering as the season progresses.

Navorro Bowman flashed his 2011-13 All Pro form on Saturday against Denver.

San Francisco would warmly welcome the return of their star ILB to All-Pro status after missing the 2014 season with a knee injury. The 49ers defense has been steadily falling apart over the offseason, so a boost from Bowman would go a long way in helping this unit stay afloat. The 49ers D/ST will be at home in Week 1 but won’t be a recommended fantasy option as Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings roll into town.

Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso missed Philadelphia’s third preseason game on Saturday as he continues to recover from a concussion suffered in early August.

Alonso originally told reporters he expected to play in the Week 3 preseason game against Green Bay, but was ultimately left on the sidelines. The Eagles D/ST would love to add Alonzo back into the mix as they look to repeat a successful 2014 season that saw the Philadelphia defense finish first in the NFL in fumble recoveries with 16, and second in sacks with 49.
Aug 30 - 2:05 AM

The New York Giants defense recorded just one sack and zero turnovers in their Week 3 preseason contest against the New York Jets.

The Giants D/ST unit is currently being drafted outside the top-20 fantasy defenses, and for good reason. The Giants were 29th in yards allowed per game in 2014, forking over 375.8 yards to opposing offenses each week. Not only is the Giants D/ST worth ignoring in drafts, but they will not be on the Week 1 streaming radar as a trip to Dallas is on the Week 1 schedule.
Aug 30 - 2:02 AM

The San Francisco Chronicle expects Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals passing attack to test the unproven cornerbacks of the Oakland Raiders when the two squads face off in Week 3 of the preseason.

The Oakland defense accumulated just nine interceptions and was dead last in the NFL in points allowed per game in 2014, leaving them far off the fantasy radar when D/ST units are being selected in drafts. Sunday’s meeting with Palmer will be a tough matchup for the young Oakland corners, but the Raiders are hoping new defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. can begin to change the defensive culture in Oakland after serving as the linebackers coach for the stout Seattle Seahawks defense over the last five seasons.

Colts RB Vick Ballard is dealing with another hamstring injury.

Ballard suffered the injury on Thursday. It's "different" than the hamstring issue he dealt with earlier in camp. At this point, the injury-prone back is likely headed to injured reserve, and will eventually be released with a settlement.

Colts DE Arthur Jones was spotted with a walking boot on his left foot following Saturday's preseason game.

It's not good news for a player who was slowed by ankle issues for the majority of 2014. Jones has yet to come close to earning the $33 million contract he signed last March.
