Eagles waived RG Andrew Gardner, LS John DePalma, CB Randall Evans, DT Mike Martin, S Nick Perry and CB Denzel Rice.

The Eagles needed to trim their roster to 75 ahead of Tuesday's 4 PM ET deadline and that's exactly what they did. Gardner started a handful of games before suffering a season-ending foot injury in 2015. With Gardner out of the mix, Brandon Brooks should open the year as Philadelphia's starting right guard.

Will Fuller caught 3-of-4 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Houston's third preseason game.

Assuming he sits out Thursday's preseason finale, Fuller finishes the summer with eight catches for 144 yards (18.0 YPC) and two touchdowns. His fourth target today was a bad drop on what would have been a long gainer, but it was an otherwise mighty impressive performance from the No. 21 overall pick. Fuller was running right by Cardinals DBs (Patrick Peterson was held out), though he did get away with a bit of a push-off on his touchdown. Fuller's hands are a concern, but his role (starting) and skills (now evident on NFL film) are not. He's a WR5 who could give you some big weeks during byes.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported Colin Kaepernick faces an "uphill battle" to make the 49ers' roster.

Glazer said he would be "shocked" if Kaepernick lasted the entire season on the 49ers' 53, and suggested Kap "may not even be on (the roster) in the next two weeks." All of Kaepernick's $11.9 million salary is guaranteed, but he has created a toxic situation by refusing to stand for pre-game National Anthems, which is Kaepernick's right but is frowned upon to put it mildly by most observers.

Brock Osweiler completed 11-of-13 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.

Osweiler probably would have been 12-for-13 if not for an embarrassing drop by Will Fuller. He was surgical on the team’s opening drive, taking advantage of the team’s excellent field position with back-to-back strikes to rookie Braxton Miller. Later he connected on a 35-yard dart to Fuller down the right sideline and found him again for a 26-yard touchdown before passing the baton to backup Tom Savage. He did lose 15 yards on a pair of sacks but it was still an impressive showing for Osweiler in his final regular season tune-up. Osweiler isn’t a re-draft consideration but certainly has the weapons to be a streaming option in favorable matchups.

Eagles released WR Rueben Randle.

It's surprising in that Randle is a veteran who signed a one-year, $1.025 million contract in March, but entirely unsurprising in light of Randle's summer and career arc. Randle caught only five passes for a pathetic 26 yards in three preseason games, and drew universal bafflement at his effort level. Randle seemed to take making the 53-man roster for granted. Randle is only 25 years old, and started all 16 games for the Giants last season, but both his film and buzz are that of a player who will have a hard time sticking on someone's roster in 2016.

David Johnson totaled 28 yards and a touchdown on six carries and also caught one of two targets for no gain in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.

He was the intended receiver on the first of Carson Palmer’s two interceptions. Johnson broke loose for a 16-yard dash down the right sideline early in the first quarter but he didn’t gain more than three yards on any of his other five carries. He pinballed through a maze of defenders for a three-yard score on his final touch of the afternoon. Johnson will finish the preseason with 64 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. He’s certainly looked the part of a top-three fantasy back, even in limited action.

Titans released/waived CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, S Lamarcus Brutus, OG Will Campbell, WR Donte Foster, LB Amarlo Herrera, WR Reece Horn, LB Deiontrez Mount, CB Tyler Patmon, OG Nick Ritcher, DL Ropati Pitoitua, and DE Mike Smith.

Wreh-Wilson was an 11-game starter in 2014, but not an effective one, getting burned relentlessly. He will be missed in DFS, however. It's never a good sign when a multi-year veteran gets cut loose at this juncture of camp.
Aug 28 - 5:38 PM

Lamar Miller collected four yards and a touchdown on four carries in Sunday’s regular season dress rehearsal.

He failed to reel in his only target. It was a frustrating outing for Miller, who could only muster a long of three yards against Arizona’s stout front seven. He was able to salvage the afternoon with a one-yard touchdown on Houston’s opening drive. Miller averaged a tepid 3.6 yards per carry in his three preseason appearances, but he’ll be fine when the games start counting. After being underused in Miami for four years, Miller should be in for a breakout season.
Aug 28 - 5:37 PM

Michael Floyd caught his lone target for ten yards in the Cardinals' third preseason game.

With John Brown (concussion) and Larry Fitzgerald (knee) on the shelf, Arizona's three-receiver set was made up of Floyd, Jaron Brown, and J.J. Nelson against the Texans. Floyd's time on the field was brief, along with Carson Palmer's. Floyd should be pressing for a career year in his contract season.
Aug 28 - 5:29 PM

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon will be sidelined four weeks with a torn MCL, but does not need surgery.

It's good and bad news. The bad being it's going to be a while before Dixon pushes for a role on offense, the good that he isn't out longer and has avoided surgery. Dixon had a strong camp and preseason. He isn't worth stashing in 12-team leagues, but should begin the year on watch lists. Baltimore has a volatile backfield where the pecking order could change multiple times in September. The four-week timetable has Dixon returning somewhere around Week 4 or 5.
Aug 28 - 5:26 PM

Chargers WR Tyrell Williams caught 3-of-3 targets for 36 yards in Sunday's third preseason game.

Williams has been solid in the passing game this preseason, but most importantly he has run extensively with Philip Rivers' first-team offense. While Williams' role to open the year is unclear behind Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates, it is notable that he has logged run over Travis Benjamin at times in August. Williams belongs on Dynasty rosters and re-draft-league watch lists.
Aug 28 - 5:21 PM

Carson Palmer completed 5-of-9 passes for 64 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in Arizona's third preseason game.

Both of Palmer's INTs were tipped passes. The second was housed for a touchdown by LB John Simon. Palmer took a cheap shot from DT Devon Still in the process, and appeared to chip his tooth. The Cards then held him out for the rest of the game. Palmer finishes the summer with zero touchdowns and three picks. The last time he appeared in a game that counted, of course, was the NFC Championship Game, where he gave the ball to the other team six times. Palmer remains a QB1 with elite weapons, but durability and turnovers are mounting question marks. Including the preseason, he has 13 turnovers in his past seven appearances.
Aug 28 - 5:16 PM

Colin Kaepernick told reporters Sunday that he will "continue to sit" during pre-game National Anthems.

This assumes Kaepernick is on an NFL roster this season, and attending games at all. While it is certainly within his rights to sit when the National Anthem is played, it has caused a P.R. nightmare in San Francisco and will remain one for as long as Kaepernick is showing up on Sundays. Other teams likely now view him as toxic. It's no secret Kaepernick is disliked by teammates, even prior to the National Anthem thing. Combined with his poor play, Kaepernick's protestation could become a career-threatening decision.
Aug 28 - 5:14 PM

Jets waived/released RB Lache Seastrunk, K Ross Martin, OL Jesse Davis, C Kyle Friend, OG Jarvis Harrison, LB Deion Barnes, DT Shelby Harris, DE Helva Matungulu, RB Terry Williams, TE Jason Vander Laan and WR Kyle Williams.

There's nary a notable name. Seastrunk is a sprinter who's probably near the end of the line as a camp body.
Aug 28 - 5:12 PM

Jets placed WR Devin Smith on the reserve/PUP list.

This clears a roster spot as the Jets begin their first round of cuts. The 37th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Smith tore his ACL in December last year and was always expected to go on reserve/PUP, costing him the first six games. Despite his high draft status, Smith is a fringe hold in Dynasty leagues.
