Santonio Holmes pulled himself out of Thursday's OTA practice because he felt he was unfairly overworked by coaches.

Per ESPN New York, Holmes "staged a mini-meltdown" near the end of the two-hour workout. He tossed his helmet and exchanged words with WRs coach Sanjay Lal. "I was talking to the coach, letting him understand it was too many reps today," Holmes said. "I've been gone for a while, so I can't be at full tempo like the rest of the guys and where they want us to be at." Holmes missed voluntary workouts while in Germany on a USO trip, and apparently 25 reps were too many. This won't help his shaky reputation inside the Jets' locker room.

Tom Savage completed 8-of-9 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' second preseason game.

Facing a vanilla, no-blitz Patriots defense, Savage picked it apart with Bruce Ellington -- the duo hooked up three times for 60 yards -- and Jaelen Strong, who scored a two-yard touchdown. Savage played less than a quarter and continues to hold a lead on rookie Deshaun Watson in this position battle.

Jamaal Williams rushed five times for 15 yards in the Packers' second preseason game.

It was not a flashy performance, but Williams got the start with Ty Montgomery (leg) sidelined and worked exclusively with the Aaron Rodgers group. At worst second on the depth chart, Williams should get work even if Montgomery is healthy, and that is far from a given. He is a great pick in the ninth round.

Kareem Hunt rushed eight times for 40 yards in Saturday's preseason game, adding three receptions for 23 additional yards.

Spence Ware "started," but played literally one snap. Hunt was in for snap two and handled the ball seven times for 36 yards on the Chiefs' opening drive. He had an eighth touch called back by holding. The next series, Hunt busted off a 25-yard run after making a nice cutback and throwing a stiff arm. He even made a nice play in pass protection. Hunt was done early in the second quarter. He was spotted on the sideline getting his right ankle taped up, but it didn't appear serious. The Chiefs' in-house announcers were talking about coach Andy Reid wanting to see what Hunt could do with the starters. The answer was carry the offense, at least for one preseason quarter. Hunt is making a legit bid for starting duties.

Jaylon Smith finished with one tackle on 12 snaps in Saturday’s preseason game.

Smith started at MLB with Sean Lee inactive for the game. It was Smith’s first time on a football field since New Year’s Day 2016 when he suffered a knee injury in his final collegiate game. Smith’s lone tackle came on a third down completion short of the sticks to prevent a first down. On a Dallas defense that is lacking playmakers, Smith’s presence is a welcome sight.

Aaron Rodgers completed 6-of-8 passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' second preseason game.

Rodgers also picked up a third down with a 13-yard run, and he drew a 12-man penalty on a different third down by quick snapping. He capped his only drive of the night by hitting Martellus Bennett on a fade route from three yards out, something fans should probably get used to seeing. In short, Rodgers is still good at football, and he is the best fantasy option at the position.

Dak Prescott completed 7-of-8 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys’ third preseason game.

It was Prescott’s first action of the preseason. Six of his seven completions went for first downs as he led the Cowboys on a 95-yard scoring drive to open the game that ended with him hitting Dez Bryant on a 32-yard touchdown. He then led a 58-yard drive on his second and final possession that ended in a red zone turnover by Darren McFadden. Prescott remains a high-floor starting quarterback in fantasy leagues entering the season.

Christian McCaffrey rushed three times for 33 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers' second preseason game, adding two catches for 39 yards.

The Panthers' offense barely saw the field in the first quarter due to a first-play fumble by Devin Funchess and then a Derek Anderson interception, but Jonathan Stewart played six of the first ten snaps, with McCaffrey getting the other four and the next five. McCaffrey ripped off numerous big plays in succession, first a 13-yard run up the gut followed by a 17-yard touchdown between the right guard and tackle. On the next drive, he took a screen 38 yards. McCaffrey's burst especially stands out. He's the real deal. McCaffrey's ADP has settled in the mid third round.

Derrick Henry rushed 16 times for 36 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans' second preseason game against the Panthers.

DeMarco Murray rested for this one, so Henry played the bulk of the first half and was the clear focal point of the offense when Matt Cassel entered the game. Henry couldn't get much going on his first few runs, but he blew around the edge and stiff-armed two defenders on his 17-yard touchdown before later scoring from one yard away on fourth-and-goal. Henry added three catches for 17 yards. If Murray ever goes down, Henry will be a fantasy RB1.
Aug 19 - 4:40 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 6-of-8 passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' second preseason game against the Panthers.

Mariota played a pair of series, leading a field goal drive on the first before finishing the second off with a four-yard touchdown to Delanie Walker who was wide open on a corner route. Mariota's first pass was a 20-yard bullet on a deep in to rookie WR Taywan Taylor. On the next play, Mariota kept it on a read-option for a nine-yard run. Looking healthy off last year's broken fibula, Mariota has top-five fantasy QB upside with a now-loaded skill group.

Appearing on the Rich Eisen Show, The Ringer's Mike Lombardi reported Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is available for trade.

"He's available in trade," Lombardi said. "You can have him if you want him." The Colts would likely be willing to part with Dorsett for a late-round pick. Teams that gave Dorsett high draft grades in 2015 may come calling closer to final cuts. Dorsett was one of ex-GM Ryan Grigson's most egregious draft picks.

NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon reports the Panthers will "increase" Cam Newton's workload this week.

Newton is not going to play in the second preseason game, but the Panthers' don't seem to be worried about his Week 1 availability. Blackmon's source said it's "so far so good" with Newton's progress. Newton is a high-upside pick in fantasy drafts this season who will enjoy the addition of explosive first-round RB Christian McCaffrey.
