Rookie RB Darius Jackson rushed five times for 30 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game, adding one reception for nine yards.

Through three preseason contests, Dallas' sixth-round pick has 120 yards on 31 carries (3.87 YPC) and two catches for 24 yards. Jackson should get one more long look in the preseason finale before the Cowboys decide whether to keep him on the 53. Jackson's chances will rise if Darren McFadden stays on reserve/NFI, though the Cowboys could wind up keeping only three backs if Lance Dunbar (knee) is truly healthy behind Zeke Elliott and Alfred Morris.

Seahawks RB Alex Collins rushed three times for 19 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

The fifth-rounder was buried deep on the depth chart, getting run behind someone named George Farmer. It's a clear indication he's on the roster bubble. Collins has taken the rock 12 times for 37 yards (3.08 YPC) thus far this preseason. He should get an extended look in the finale.

C.J. Prosise rushed four times for 23 yards in his preseason debut Thursday night.

Although he didn't quite stuff the stat sheet, this was a big step forward for Prosise after an injury-plagued spring and beginning to camp. He worked as the Seahawks' first-team third-down back behind Christine Michael, and also mixed in on some second-and-long plays. Neither Michael nor Thomas Rawls is adept in the passing game, so Prosise could have a Week 1 role. Prosise should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and belongs on re-draft watch lists.

Alfred Morris rushed five times for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason game, adding two catches for 11 yards.

Morris entered after Ezekiel Elliott torched the Seahawks' stout first-team defense in his preseason debut. Still only 27, Morris should have plenty left in the tank as a runner — he's rushed 21 times for 113 yards this preseason — but is a distant second behind Zeke on the depth chart. Morris is a pure handcuff, albeit one that will have serious fantasy value behind Dallas' dominant line were Elliott to go down with injury.

Cole Beasley caught 4-of-6 targets for 30 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game Thursday.

With Dez Bryant inactive, Beasley saw a little more attention than normal from Dak Prescott, who replaced Tony Romo (back/coaches' decision) after just three snaps. Beasley was leading the team in targets when he exited early in the second half. Beasley was targeted deep on one throw, but it fell incomplete. He simply isn't an option far away from the line of scrimmage. Beasley is expected to man the slot for Dallas, but it's not going to translate to big numbers.

Dak Prescott completed 17-of-23 passes for 116 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' third preseason game, adding two rushes for 12 yards.

Through three exhibition contests, Prescott is 39-of-50 passing (78.0 percent) for 454 yards (9.08 YPA) and a 5:0 TD-to-INT ratio with 53 yards and two more scores on seven carries. That makes seven all-purpose touchdowns for Dak, compared to zero turnovers. The sample size remains small and Prescott has been put in consistently favorable situations by Dallas' coaching staff, but he also warrants recognition as one of the NFL's best preseason stories. He particularly excelled under pressure in Thursday night's game at Seattle, keeping the offense on the move despite the absence of Dez Bryant (concussion).

Tyler Lockett caught 3-of-3 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game.

Lockett's score was a nine-yard grab where he worked himself open in the end zone for a scrambling Russell Wilson. It was the kind of big play that's become Lockett's signature, though he still appears to be third on the depth chart behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. He was even out-snapped by Paul Richardson with the first-team offense. Lockett is one of the league's most dynamic playmakers, but the Seahawks could be reluctant to overexpose him on offense because of how dangerous he is on special teams. Lockett is going to have some big fantasy weeks, but could be too unpredictable to be a reliable WR3.
Aug 26 - 12:15 AM

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's third preseason game.

His touchdown came from eight yards out on a rainbow from Russell Wilson. A 4.4-flat speedster whose first two NFL seasons were washed out by injuries, Richardson was a second-round pick in the 2014 draft. He played more first-team snaps than Tyler Lockett in Thursday's exhibition game and looks to have secured a role in Seattle's receiver rotation. Richardson is worth stashing in deep Dynasty leagues. He is a threat to Lockett's 2016 re-draft value.
Aug 26 - 12:12 AM

Jermaine Kearse caught 3-of-4 targets for 32 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Kearse out-snapped Tyler Lockett 21-10 in the first half. Lockett is undeniably on the rise, but Kearse appears to have him edged in two-receiver sets to begin the season. Seattle didn't give Kearse a three-year, $13.5 million contract for nothing. Lockett is still the preferred fantasy own, of course. Kearse's grabs this evening were his lone receptions in three preseason games.
Aug 26 - 12:08 AM

Christine Michael rushed seven times for 58 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game Thursday night.

A resurgent C-Mike now has 24 preseason carries for 157 yards, good for a 6.5 yards-per-carry average. He has both grinded out tough yards and showed big-play ability this August while earning the trust of the Seahawks' coaching staff. If you aren't taking Michael serious by now, your head is in the sand. Michael has dominated first-team snaps with Russell Wilson. Even if it isn't as the Seahawks' starter over Rawls, Michael has earned a meaningful early-season role in Seattle's post-Marshawn Lynch backfield.
Aug 26 - 12:07 AM

Russell Wilson completed 16-of-21 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's preseason game, rushing three times for two yards.

We'd say he's ready for the regular season. The highlight was an absurd third quarter scramble where Wilson bought time for seemingly minutes on end before finally finding Tyler Lockett in the end zone for a nine-yard touchdown. It was the kind of play that sets Wilson apart, and has his fantasy arrow still screaming upward after years of continual improvement. Wilson finishes the summer 24-of-38 for 303 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He's an elite QB1.
Aug 26 - 12:03 AM

Doug Baldwin caught 4-of-6 targets for 29 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game against the Cowboys.

His six targets were easily a team-high among first-teamers. Baldwin could have had a bigger night, but Russell Wilson barely overshot him on a deep ball down the right sideline near the end zone. If Baldwin is done for the preseason, he'll end it with six catches for 52 yards on nine targets. It's incredibly difficult to see Baldwin catching 14 touchdowns like he did a year ago, but he remains the clear-cut No. 1 option in Seattle and a very solid WR2 in the early part of drafts.
Aug 26 - 12:02 AM

Falcons first-round pick SS Keanu Neal (knee) expects to be ready for Week 1.

Neal suffered a non-contact knee injury in Atlanta's third preseason game, but he's believed to have escaped without a serious ailment. Behind the Falcons' leaky front seven, Neal offers big tackle potential as an IDP rookie.

Appearing on the Cowboys' telecast during Thursday night's preseason game, Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones insisted Tony Romo is "not injured."

Jones referred to Romo's back as "tight or jammed," and reiterated that the Cowboys rested Romo after just three snaps on a "coaches' decision." Expect the team to take it easy on Romo for the remainder of August and into early September. The Cowboys open the season on September 11 against the Giants.
Aug 25 - 11:46 PM

Terrance Williams caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game against the Seahawks.

Williams played the entire first half in a game Dez Bryant wasn't even active, and he still saw just two looks. He could have had a much bigger night, as Dak Prescott hung up a pretty deep ball down the middle to Williams, but the fourth-year receiver didn't come back to the ball. He waited for it to get to him, and the defensive back was able to knock it away. It's plays like this that make Williams more of a JAG. He'll have a couple big weeks, but they're impossible to predict.
