NFL Network's Albert Breer confirms Rob Gronkowski is done for the day after re-injuring his forearm in the first quarter of the Divisional round game versus the Texans.

The news comes as no surprise. Gronkowski remained in the locker room for the start of the second half, and he was in obvious pain after landing on the forearm while trying to reel in a deep circus catch down the sideline. Gronk finished the game without a catch. His status could be in jeopardy for the remainder of the post-season, pending X-rays.

Tyler Gaffney rushed seven times for 33 yards Friday night against the Panthers.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 9-of-15 passes for 57 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night.

Garoppolo got the start, but he only played three possessions before giving up the reins to Tom Brady, who immediately led the team on two scoring drives. Garoppolo took back over for a couple possessions on both sides of the half. Garoppolo was not terrible Friday night, but he seemed to struggle when pressured, missed a couple open receivers down field, and should have turned the ball over at least twice. He should be a serviceable starter while Brady is suspended, but it is unlikely Garoppolo puts up big fantasy numbers. He is certainly not worth using Week 1 against the Cardinals.

C.J. Spiller rushed four times for 20 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for -1 yards in the Saints' third preseason game.

The biggest takeaway is Spiller ran extensively with the first-team offense. He also got first-team run in the second week of preseason, making this a recurring theme. Spiller "started" and essentially rotated evenly with Mark Ingram when Drew Brees was in the game. Spiller seemingly came close to breaking a few big runs, but was caught by his shoelace once and dragged down in the open field on another. Spiller has burned fantasy owners plenty in the past, but he's worth a look in the late rounds of PPR leagues. He'd be easy to drop if he does nothing when the real games start.

Robert Griffin III completed just 8-of-14 passes for 119 yards and one touchdown in the Browns' third preseason game Friday night.

The Bucs field one of the least-inspiring pass-rush groups in the league, but they recorded five sacks on RGIII in the first half, while knocking him down a number of other times. They especially got after the quarterback on third down, as coach Hue Jackson dialed up a lot of long-developing plays only to see his offensive line not be able to hold its blocks. RGIII finished the night on a high note, however, hitting Josh Gordon deep for a 43-yard touchdown. Gordon did all the work, though, manhandling pint-sized CB Brent Grimes and adjusting to the ball in the air. Last week, RGIII looked phenomenal. Tonight, he was pummeled. The inconsistency is what keeps him a boom-or-bust QB2.

Kirk Cousins completed 12-of-23 passes for 188 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in one half of action during Friday night's third preseason game.

Cousins chucked an ugly pick on the sideline to kills Redskins' first drive, throwing far outside the numbers off his back foot. He atoned with touchdown passes to Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed, and Ryan Grant, catching fire in the second quarter as the Bills rested more of their first-team defenders. Tonight's stat line was a little better than Cousins played, but he remains one of the premier late-round quarterback picks due to his elite weapons, pass-first offense, and soft schedule in the first half of the season.

Antonio Brown secured 4-of-4 targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers' third preseason game.

Brown did all of his damage in just over eight minutes of action. The Steelers' offense cut through the Saints' barely-there defense like a hot knife in butter. Brown was Ben Roethlisberger's go-to guy as usual, dusting past Saints rookie CB De'Vante Harris on his 57-yard touchdown. Due to the Steelers' weapons shortage, Brown has the highest raw target projection in the league this season. He should be the consensus 1.01 fantasy pick.
Aug 26 - 9:33 PM

Ben Roethlisberger completed 12-of-17 passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns in two possessions during Thursday night's third preseason game.

As Ben should, he carved up the Saints' swiss-cheese defense amidst zero pass rush. Picking on rookie CB De'Vante Harris, Roethlisberger found Antonio Brown for a 57-yard TD after connecting with TE Jesse James in the red zone for his first score. Roethlisberger's weaponry has taken a hit, but he remains a top-eight fantasy quarterback. His ADP is just a bit rich for our taste.

Cam Newton completed 13-of-29 passes for 100 yards and two interceptions Friday night against the Patriots.

Newton struggled all night, overthrowing Kelvin Benjamin badly on two early throws and showing inconsistent accuracy despite little to no pressure. Both interceptions came on back-foot throws, the first of which was a terrible ball thrown ball both short and too far infield. Newton was victimized by a few drops including a sure touchdown muffed by Ed Dickson, but he played his part in the first-team offense failing to find the end zone despite playing almost all of the third quarter. It was an ugly game, but ultimately not much of a concern for the reigning MVP. He is still safe to take as the overall QB1.

Rookie RB Keith Marshall exited Friday night's preseason game with a sprained elbow.

It's probably a day-to-day injury, but will cost Marshall a big opportunity with Matt Jones (shoulder) inactive. Marshall was rotating first-team snaps with Rob Kelley in the Kirk Cousins group before going for X-rays on his arm. Marshall's injury may force the Skins to add a running back via free agency or trade.

Blaine Gabbert is expected to start the 49ers' third preseason game.

As ESPN's Bob Holtzman notes, it's an "indication" Colin Kaepernick "will have to play really well" to win the 49ers' starting job. It won't be hard to play better than Gabbert, but Gabbert getting the start in the regular season dress rehearsal remains notable. Gabbert can probably still escape as the likely Week 1 starter if he plays competently and Kaepernick struggles at all.

Dolphins WLB Jelani Jenkins will undergo a knee scope.

The Fins also lost rotational DE Terrence Fede to a sprained MCL. Jenkins is coming off a 71-tackle season across 13 starts. He is regarded as Miami's top coverage linebacker. The Dolphins' defensive back seven is a total mess.
