Heath Miller (knee) practiced in full Wednesday and could start Sunday night against the Bears "barring any setbacks."

The Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger need Miller back as soon as possible. Miller is Roethlisberger's safety valve and reliable red-zone target. Coach Mike Tomlin hinted Monday that his tight end could be ready to play this week. Miller will likely be limited at first, but he's worth monitoring in deeper leagues. The 30-year-old caught a career-high eight touchdowns in 2012.

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

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.

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.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (ankle) says he expects to be ready for Week 1.

This is a great sign for Lee, who was previously thought to have a high-ankle sprain. He is already out of a walking boot and no longer needs crutches. Lee was by far the most efficient player for the Jaguars on short passes last season and an important part of their offense.

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein believes Ameer Abdullah will top 1,000 yards rushing this season if he stays healthy.

The if he stays healthy sounds like a big qualifier after last season, but Abdullah played all 16 games as a rookie despite suffering a shoulder injury late in the year and did not have injury issues in college. Rothstein admits touchdowns could be a concern and Theo Riddick will steal work in the passing game, but 1,000 yards would still be an accomplishment after just 12 backs managed the feat last season. Abdullah does not have the upside of people like Doug Martin or Mark Ingram, but he is still a fine pick in the fifth round.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Friday night that LT George Fant (ACL) is done for the season.

Carroll called it a "significant" ACL injury, and suggested there may have been more ligament damage. The injury indeed looked brutal on the field. The Seahawks turned to sometimes guard Rees Odhiambo as their first-team left tackle in Fant's absence. They could also look at LG Luke Joeckel as a left guard alternative, or give un-retired free agent Branden Albert a phone call.

Seahawks seventh-round RB Chris Carson turned six carries into 27 yards and one catch into 17 yards in Friday night's preseason game.

While Eddie Lacy plodded his way to 23 yards on seven touches, Carson exploded for 44 yards on his seven opportunities and looked clearly to be the more determined downhill back. Carson essentially earned an RBBC with Lacy, playing 9-of-22 snaps with the Russell Wilson first-team offense compared to Lacy's 13 first-team plays. Carson has played himself onto the radar in re-draft leagues.

Kasen Williams caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

Building on his 4-119 line from last week, Williams ran exclusively with the Russell Wilson group, playing 11 of the first 15 snaps while making a 27-yard one-handed catch in Xavier Rhodes' coverage before then nabbing a one-yard touchdown on a fade. Williams could (should) have had another touchdown but dropped a 45-yarder that hit him in the belly. Williams is passing Jermaine Kearse for No. 4 receiver duties behind Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, and Tyler Lockett, and both Richardson and Lockett have big durability concerns.
Aug 19 - 12:17 AM

Eddie Lacy rushed six times for 20 yards and caught his lone target for three yards in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

He has 30 yards on 10 preseason carries with the lone reception. Lacy started tonight only because Thomas Rawls is battling a mild ankle sprain, and even so merely shared first-team duties with rookie Chris Carson, who played 9-of-22 first-team snaps to Lacy's 13. Lacy has looked neither powerful nor explosive this preseason. We would advise avoiding him before the late rounds of drafts.
