The Chiefs expect Albert Wilson to be "fine" after Friday night's shoulder scare.

He escaped with a mild AC sprain in the shoulder. It's a "minor deal," per coach Andy Reid. Wilson is currently on track to open the season starting opposite Jeremy Maclin, but should be feeling some heat from Chris Conley.

Knile Davis had two catches for 17 yards in Kansas City's third preseason game.

Davis played behind Jamaal Charles, but didn't have any carries. Charcandrick West also worked with the first team and finished as the Chiefs leading rusher. Davis remains the top handcuff to Charles. Through three preseason games, Davis has 15 carries for 52 yards (3.46 YPC).

Antonio Andrews had a two-yard touchdown in Tennessee's third preseason game.

With David Cobb sitting out, the Titans used Andrews as a short-yardage complement to Bishop Sankey. He mixed in with the first team, vulturing a goal-line touchdown. Andrews has 10 carries for 39 yards and two touchdowns through three preseason games.

Rookie WR Chris Conley caught three passes for 30 yards in Kansas City's third preseason game.

Conley started in three-wide sets after making his preseason debut last week. He was targeted six times, behind only Jeremy Maclin. Conley drew a pass interference call that set up Travis Kelce's eight-yard touchdown. With Albert Wilson (shoulder) sidelined, Conley has a chance to find his way into early-season base packages.

Justin Hunter was held without a catch in Tennessee's third preseason game.

Hunter played exclusively with the second team, with Hakeem Nicks starting opposite Kendall Wright. All four of his targets came on deep routes. Hunter has just two catches for 14 yards through three preseason games. Hunter isn't a recommended late-round flyer.

Allen Robinson caught two balls for 14 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

Robinson caused a scare when he briefly left the game with a first-half shoulder "contusion" (bruise), but returned on the very next play. Especially with Julius Thomas (finger) losing so much practice time with Blake Bortles, Robinson is in prime position to open the season as a target monster. Through three preseason games, "A-Rob" has seven receptions for 103 yards.

Theo Riddick had one carry for three yards in Detroit's third preseason game.

Ameer Abdullah started, but Riddick mixed in with the first team. He added one catch for six yards on his lone target. With Joique Bell expected to be ready for Week 1, Riddick doesn't project to have a role in the Lions offense. Riddick has 12 carries for 42 yards through three preseason games.
Aug 28 - 10:57 PM

Rookie WR Rashad Greene caught three balls for 25 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

With Marqise Lee (always?) injured, Greene was the Jaguars' slot receiver to open the game, working between Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns on the first-team offense. Greene had a clutch third-down catch from Blake Bortles midway through the first half. The Jags plan to primarily run two-tight end sets this year, so Greene will be a rotational player if he holds off Lee.

Zach Zenner rushed eight times for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' third preseason game.

The highly impressive undrafted rookie dominated in this one, playing extensively with the first-team offense in the Joique Bell role, while Ameer Abdullah mixed in. Zenner ripped off eight yards on his first carry, and six on the next before breaking off scampers of 41 and 21 yards, flashing his long-run ability. Zenner also made a tackle in punt coverage, and has locked up a 53-man roster spot as arguably the star player of the Lions' preseason. Through three exhibition contests, Zenner has 162 yards on 25 carries (6.48 YPC) and tonight's three-yard touchdown, plus a 6-60-1 receiving line.

LeGarrette Blount had seven carries for 29 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game.

While Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden shared time with the Tom Brady group, Blount was the lead back when Jimmy Garoppolo entered to begin the second half. It's possible Blount played with Garoppolo in anticipation of them opening the season together. Knowing Bill Belichick, it's also possible the Patriots' tailback position has been opened to competition, and Blount is getting pushed by Gray. We don't anticipate any of the Pats' backs truly being trustworthy in re-draft leagues this year, but we do still believe Blount has the best shot.
Aug 28 - 10:46 PM

Blake Bortles completed 20-of-29 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville's third preseason game.

He added four carries for 38 yards. Borltes made some nice throws to Allen Hurns, including a 13-yard play-action touchdown. He would have had another touchdown, but Allen Robinson dropped a pass in the end zone. Bortles has put together a solid preseason, competing 39-of-60 passes for 461 yards and a touchdown through three games. Bortles has potential as a streaming option in redraft leagues.
Aug 28 - 10:42 PM

Denard Robinson rushed three times for seven yards and caught two passes for 29 yards in the Jaguars' third preseason game.

Robinson was the Jaguars' No. 2 back in this one, mixing in with the first-team offense behind T.J. Yeldon, who operated as an every-down back. Robinson handled a drive to himself, but was pulled at the goal line for Yeldon, who plunged in from two yards out. Robinson is ticketed for change-of-pace duties in the Jaguars' offense. He's a low-ceiling handcuff for Yeldon owners.

Danny Amendola caught one pass for 25 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game.

He operated as New England's slot receiver while Reggie Wayne and Aaron Dobson worked outside. Keep in mind Brandon LaFell and Julian Edelman are on the shelf. Still, Amendola could open the season as one of the Pats' top-three receivers, along with Wayne and Edelman. The tentative expectation is that LaFell's foot injury will send him to reserve/PUP, costing him six games.
Aug 28 - 10:36 PM

Scott Chandler caught three balls for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' third preseason game.

With Rob Gronkowski resting, Chandler parlayed his first-team work into an 18-yard touchdown in the second quarter on a fade ball from Tom Brady. Beat writers on Twitter immediately noted the Brady-to-Chandler end-zone fade has been a staple in Patriots practices. Chandler will be a low-volume red-zone threat in the Pats' offense this year, and a low-end TE1 if Gronk goes down.
Aug 28 - 10:34 PM

Aaron Dobson had two catches for 51 yards on five targets in New England's third preseason game.

Dobson had a night to forget playing with the Tom Brady group. He was at fault on Tom Brady's first "interception" -- really a fumble by Dobson that was stripped by Peanut Tillman -- and Dobson was also flagged for blocking in the back. Even with Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell sidelined, Dobson remains off the redraft radar.
