#HeadlineSummaryPublished 
1.Colt Anderson (RotoWire) Mike Adams will start at strong safety this week against Denver with Anderson working in a backup role, ESPN reports. Analysis: Sergio Brown, Anderson and Adams competed for the starting job after Delano Howell went on IR with a neck injury. Anderson could still work his way into more playing time at safety as Adams may not be too secure as the starter.less than a minute
2.Knowshon Moreno (RotoWire) Lamar Miller remains listed as the starter at running back over Moreno on the Dolphins' first official depth chart of the regular season, the team's official site reports. Analysis: Though Miller remains listed atop the Dolphins' posted depth chart, the reports suggests that both Moreno and Miller should see considerable playing time out of the team's backfield. In any case, until something of a predictable distribution of the team's carries emerges, and that won't be revealed before Sunday's season opener against the Patriots, we'll continue to operate under the assumption that some form of time-share will be in effect to start...

3.Sergio Brown (RotoWire) Mike Adams will start at strong safety this week against Denver with Brown working in a backup role, ESPN reports. Analysis: Brown, Colt Anderson and Adams competed for the starting job after Delano Howell went on IR with a neck injury. Brown could still work his way into more playing time at safety as Adams may not be too secure as the starter.less than a minute
4.Mike Adams (RotoWire) Adams will start at strong safety this week against Denver, ESPN reports. Analysis: He beat out Sergio Brown and Colt Anderson for the starting job after Delano Howell went on IR with a neck injury.less than a minute
5.Charles Sims (RotoWire) Sims (ankle) is expected to be placed on the Buccaneers' injured reserve/designated to return list on Tuesday, CBS Sports reports. Analysis: Sims injured his ankle and underwent surgery in mid-August, which will likely rule him out until at least the mid-season mark of this year. Nonetheless, the Buccaneers were very encouraged by the ability their third round pick showed during training camp, especially in pass catching situations out of the backfield. With that in mind, Tampa Bay intends to use their designated to return listing on Sims, who will consequently be eligible to practice only after Week 6 and able to play only after ... (More)less than a minute
6.Glenn Dorsey (RotoWire) Dorsey (biceps) is expected to be placed on the 49ers' injured reserve/designated to return list on Tuesday, CSN Bay Area reports. Analysis: Dorsey was slated to start at nose tackle before tearing his biceps Aug. 1 and is now expected to miss three-and-a-half months following surgery. With the possibility of returning some time after the mid-season mark, Dorsey will be named San Francisco's designated player to return, ruling him out of practice until after Week 6 and out of games until after Week 8. While Dorsey rehabs, Quinton Dial is expected to open the regular season as the 49ers' starter at nose tackle.less than a minute
7.Lamar Miller (RotoWire) Miller remains listed as the starter at running back over Knowshon Moreno on the Dolphins' first official depth chart of the regular season, the team's official site reports. Analysis: Though Miller remains listed as the top back on the Dolphins' posted depth chart, the reports suggests that both Miller and Moreno figure to see considerable playing time out of the team's backfield. In any case, until something resembling a predictable distribution of the team's carries emerges, and that won't likely be revealed until Sunday's season opener against the Patriots, we'll continue to operate under the assumption that some form of time... (More)less than a minute
8.Erik Swoope (RotoWire) Swoope was signed to the Indianapolis practice squad, ESPN reports. Analysis: Swoope, who played college basketball for the University of Miami, signed a contract with the Colts as an undrafted free agent. At 6-5, 220, the Colts are hoping they can have the same success of turning a top college basketball player into a tight end along the lines of Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates. He'll be able to develop on the practice squad.less than a minute
9.Adam Thielen (RotoWire) Theilen (hip) returned to practice Monday, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports. Analysis: Thielen begins the season as the No. 4 wide receiver on the depth chart due to Jerome Simpson's suspension, but it's unlikely he'll be on the field much on offense.less than a minute
10.Anthony Barr (RotoWire) Barr (ankle) returned to practice Monday, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports. Analysis: Barr missed Minnesota's final preseason game with a sprained ankle injury, but it doesn't look like an issue for Week 1.less than a minute
11.Linval Joseph (RotoWire) Joseph (calf) returned to practice Monday, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports. Analysis: Joseph was shot in the leg by a stray bullet fired in a Minneapolis night club Aug. 8, but his injury was luckily minor. It looks like he'll be able to play this week against St. Louis.less than a minute
12.Robert Blanton (RotoWire) While Blanton is listed first on the depth chart at strong safety, head coach Mike Zimmer may not officially announce a starter until later in the week, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities. Analysis: Blanton appears set as the starter after the released of Chris Crocker and Kurt Coleman, but it's also possible the strong safety job could be a committee with Andrew Sendejo and Antone Exum also getting snaps.less than a minute
13.Rodney Smith (RotoWire) Smith (neck) returned to practice Monday, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports. Analysis: Smith enters Week 1 as the fifth receiver and will likely get all his playing time on special teams.less than a minute
14.Josh Bynes (RotoWire) Bynes was waived by the Ravens on Tuesday. Analysis: Bynes played in 15 games last season, making six starts along the way, en route to 45 tackles (22 solo) on the campaign. However, with the Ravens opting to re-sign cornerback Derek Cox on Tuesday, a corresponding roster move needed to be made and since Albert McClellan and Zachary Orr have made strong special teams contributions recently, Bynes was deemed the odd man out at inside linebacker. The 25-year-old run stopper will look to land elsewhere before the regular season kicks off this weekend.less than a minute
15.Texans | Johnathan Joseph healthy (KFFL) Houston Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (toe) said there is no doubt he is healthy enough to play in the team's Week 1 game.less than a minute
16.Kassim Osgood (RotoWire) Osgood is expected to re-sign with the 49ers on Tuesday, CSN Bay Area reports. Analysis: Osgood was released by the 49ers over the weekend, but will return to the team once defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey (biceps) is placed on the injured reserve/designated for return list. While Osgood's official position designation is wide receiver, he boasts merely 45 career receptions, making him of fantasy little value. Nonetheless, Osgood has been named to the Pro Bowl three times for his expertise on special teams, where he figures to continue as one of the league's premier kick coverage men this season.less than a minute
17.Steelers | Planning to see Johnny Manziel (KFFL) Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said the team is expecting to see Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel play in some capacity in the team's Week 1 game. "They didn't draft him in the first round to watch," Tomlin said.less than a minute
18.Ravens | Waive Josh Bynes (KFFL) The Baltimore Ravens waived LB Josh Bynes Tuesday, Sept. 2.less than a minute
19.Kurt Coleman (RotoWire) Coleman is expected to sign with the Chiefs on Tuesday, FOX Sports reports. Analysis: Coleman was released by the Vikings over the weekend, but will now be reunited with former coach Andy Reid in Kansas City. A seventh round pick of the Eagles in 2010, Coleman is two years removed from a career-best 93 tackles (70 solo) and could immediately compete with Husain Abdullah for playing time at free safety.less than a minute
20.Sankey elevated to No. 2 on Titans depth chart (FFToday) Rookie running back Bishop Sankey is now the No. 2 running back, still behind Shonn Greene but now ahead of Dexter McCluster. All three will be part of the rotation and game plans and matchups will do a lot to dictate their usage. Analysis: It's too early to say who will end up getting the bulk of carries this season, because Snakey is the more dynamic back but Greene is an experienced plodder who knows the offense. Sankey still has more upside, but Greene could end up surprising this season with decent numbers... (More)less than a minute
21.49ers | Glenn Dorsey going to IR-R (KFFL) San Francisco 49ers DT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) will be placed on the Active/Reserve/Injured list. WR Kassim Osgood is expected to rejoin the team and take Dorsey's spot.less than a minute
22.Patriots | Rob Gronkowski to be on snap count (KFFL) New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) will be on a snap count in Week 1.less than a minute
23.Buccaneers | Charles Sims to short-term IR (KFFL) Tampa Bay Buccaners RB Charles Sims (ankle) is expected to be placed on the Active/Reserve/Injured list. The club liked what they saw in the offseason and believe he could be back in midseason.less than a minute
24.Derek Cox (RotoWire) Cox re-signed with the Ravens on Tuesday. Analysis: Cox was released by the Ravens on Saturday, but now returns to the team in a planned procedural move. With Baltimore a bit banged-up at cornerback, Cox could see an increased snap count if Lardarius Webb (back) and Jimmy Smith (chest) are limited at all in Week 1. However, with Webb and Smith entrenched as the Ravens' starting cornerbacks, and Asa Jackson and Chykie Brown also talented reserves, Cox will likely serve as the team's fourth or fifth option at the position this season.less than a minute
25.Chiefs | Kurt Coleman signs (KFFL) The Kansas City Chiefs signed free-agent SS Kurt Coleman (Vikings) to an undisclosed deal Tuesday, Sept. 2.less than a minute
26.Henry Melton (RotoWire) Melton (groin), who didn't suit up at all in the preseason, says he's ready to go for Week 1, the Dallas Morning News reports. Analysis: It's been almost 12 months since Melton's seen any game action after he tore his ACL last season, so it might take him some time to get back up to speed and be ready for every-down duty.less than a minute
27.Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick the starter (KFFL) Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is locked in as the team's starting quarterback. QB Ryan Mallett isn't expected to challenge for the starting spot any time soon, in the opinion of the Houston Chronicle's Brian T. Smith.less than a minute
28.Rolando McClain (RotoWire) McClain injured his right knee during Monday's practice, the Dallas Morning News reports. Analysis: At this point the injury doesn't appear to be serious, but we should get more information as the weekend draws closer. If he's healthy, McClain is the leading candidate to fill in at middle linebacker for the Cowboys.less than a minute
29.George Selvie (RotoWire) Selvie (shoulder) wasn't able to practice on Monday, the Dallas Morning News reports. Analysis: He's been out since the Cowboys' third preseason game after re-injuring his surgically-repaired right shoulder. Selvie was able to do some work on the side, but at this point his status for Week 1 is up in the air.less than a minute
30.Ravens | Derek Cox re-signs (KFFL) The Baltimore Ravens re-signed CB Derek Cox to a one-year, $730,000 contract that counts $570,000 against the NFL salary cap per the veteran minimum Tuesday, Sept. 2.less than a minute
31.Dolphins | Lamar Miller in lead (KFFL) Updating an earlier report, Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller is listed ahead of RB Knowshon Moreno on the depth chart the team released Tuesday, Sept. 2.less than a minute
32.Rams | Robert Quinn talks near (KFFL) St. Louis Rams DE Robert Quinn is likely to begin engaging contract talks with the team after the 2014 season, in the opinion of ESPN's Nick Wagoner. Quinn is under contract for two more years at just under $10 million total.less than a minute
33.Texans | J.J. Watt contract update (KFFL) Updating previous reports, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt is fully guaranteed $30.87 million in his new contract. The remainder of the $51.8 million guarantee kicks in before the 2016 season.less than a minute
34.Ronnie Hillman (RotoWire) Hillman (illness) was a limited participant in practice Monday, the Denver Post reports. Analysis: Hillman missed last Thursday's preseason finale due to an illness that required him to be hospitalized. The team has not given any details regarding the illness, but if he continues to be limited in practice this week, his role for Week 1 against the Colts could be reduced.less than a minute
35.Dolphins | Lamar Miller needs consistency (KFFL) Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller totaled nearly 20 percent (140 yards) of his season yardage total (709 yards) on his longest four carries of the 2013 season. He had a 3.3 yards-per-carry average in the other 173 carries. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said the team is looking for him to be more productive and decisive. Miller has improved his pass blocking but needs to break more tackles and make would-be tacklers miss. There is skepticism growing about whether Miller or Knowshon Moreno will start and carry the bu... (More)less than a minute
36.Letroy Guion to start at nose tackle for... (Rotoworld) Letroy Guion will be the Packers' starting nose tackle this season. Analysis: B.J. Raji (torn biceps) is out for the year. Guion missed most of camp with a hamstring injury, but has been practicing for the past week. Guion has good size but plays below-average run defense. It's a favorable matchup for Marshawn Lynch in Week 1. Guion will be flanked by Datone Jones and Mike Daniels.1 hour
37.Blidi Wreh-Wilson wins starting CB job (Rotoworld) Second-year CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson appears to have won the Titans' right corner job over Coty Sensabaugh. Analysis: A revised depth chart released by Tennessee shows Wreh-Wilson ahead of Sensabaugh, with Jason McCourty stationed at left corner. Sensabaugh will be the Titans' nickel back and slot cornerback. Wreh-Wilson is the better target in IDP leagues, although he probably has a DB3 ceiling. Safeties are preferable.1 hour
38.FA G/C Ryan Jensen battling sleep apnea (Rotoworld) Free agent G/C Ryan Jensen currently suffers from severe sleep apnea. Analysis: Jensen, a sixth-round pick of the Ravens in 2013, was part of Baltimore's final cuts over the weekend. The Baltimore Sun observed Jensen being visibly "groggy" and "more irritable" this summer. Sleep apnea is common, but Hall of Famer Reggie White died in his sleep due to complications from his severe sleep apnea. The Ravens were fairly high on Jensen prior to this summer.1 hour
39.Sankey moves to 2nd RB on Titans depth c... (Rotoworld) The Titans have elevated rookie Bishop Sankey to No. 2 on their tailback depth chart. Analysis: He's still behind Shonn Greene, but passed Dexter McCluster. Per beat writer Paul Kuharsky, "all three will be part of the rotation and game plans and matchups will do a lot to dictate their usage." Greene will open the season as the slight favorite for carries over Sankey, and should get almost all short-yardage and goal-line work. McCluster will play the Danny Woodhead role under ex-Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt. Although his ascent has been slow, we still expect Sankey to eme... (More)1 hour
40.C A.Q. Shipley slated to start Colts' op... (Rotoworld) A.Q. Shipley took all of the Colts' first-team reps at center during Monday's practice. Analysis: Shipley was claimed off waivers on Sunday, but knows the offense after spending 2012 in Indy. Usual No. 1 center Khaled Holmes is still battling a high-ankle sprain. He's not expected to play Week 1. The Colts have been hit hard by injuries up front this summer. Their Week 1 line projects as LT Anthony Castonzo, LG Jack Mewhort, C Shipley, RG Hugh Thornton, RT Gosder Cherilus.1 hour
41.Chiefs sign backup S Kurt Coleman (Rotoworld) Chiefs signed S Kurt Coleman. Analysis: Coleman was part of the Vikings' final cuts after inking a one-year deal with Minnesota in March. He was drafted by coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia and will be Kansas City's No. 4 safety. Coleman will mainly cover kicks for the Chiefs.1 hour
42.Lamar Miller listed as starter on depth ... (Rotoworld) Lamar Miller is listed as the Dolphins' starting running back on the latest depth chart. Analysis: It's not a surprise, as the expectation continues to be that Miller will get the "starts" and most of the early-down work while Knowshon Moreno has emerged as the favorite for third-down and passing-game duties. Moreno could chip into Miller's snaps after Miller failed to produce during the preseason. The thing to take away is that Moreno's stock is on the rise, and Miller is treading water.2 hours
43.Tate to play three-down role in CLE back... (Rotoworld) Coach Mike Pettine continued to praise Ben Tate as a three-down running back, calling Tate the "guy you can trust the most right now." Analysis: After the Browns cut Dion Lewis and Chris Ogbonnaya, Tate became the clear leader for third-down duties. He already had early-down work sewn up after a strong preseason coupled with Terrance West's disappointing summer. "He's been solid in protection. I think he does a nice job catching the ball," Pettine said. "Probably the guy you can trust the most right now would be Ben." Look for Tate to carry the ball ... (More)2 hours
44.Giants MLB Beason (foot) back at practic... (Rotoworld) Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) returned to practice Monday and expects to play Week 1 against the Lions. Analysis: Whether Beason plays a part-time or full-time role remains to be seen. Monday was his first practice since tearing a ligament and breaking a bone in his toe in June, so there's ground to be made up. The Giants are going to lean on their defense early on while the offense tries to work through its preseason problems. Beason is an integral part of the Giants' run defense at the MIKE spot.2 hours
45.Browns high on UDFA CB Robert Nelson (Rotoworld) Coach Mike Pettine said he believes undrafted CB Robert Nelson has a chance to be a starter at some point. Analysis: Nelson profiles as a slot corner at 5'9/175. The UDFA attended Cleveland's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Browns then signed Nelson, and he ended up making the 53-man roster. After spending a few years looking for a complement to Joe Haden, the Browns now have one of the deeper cornerback depth charts in the league. Nelson will likely cover kicks as a rookie.3 hours
46.Ravens resign CB Derek Cox (Rotoworld) Ravens re-signed CB Derek Cox. Analysis: Cox, 28 later this month, was signed by the Ravens last week. He was then apart of final cuts. Cox had drawn interest from at least one other team, but chose to re-up in Baltimore where the cornerback depth chart is churning behind starters Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Cox will compete for a role in sub-packages, likely as an outside corner when Webb moves to the slot.3 hours
47.Bucs OC Jeff Tedford may miss Week 1 (Rotoworld) Bucs OC Jeff Tedford (medical procedure) may miss Week 1 against the Panthers. Analysis: 52-year-old Tedford underwent a "medical procedure" last week. He's been working part-time from home since then, and may not be ready to return to the coaching box by Sunday. If Tedford can't be in attendance, QBs coach Marcus Arroyo will call the offensive plays. Tampa Bay's offensive line was dominated all preseason. They have a tough test against Carolina's front seven.3 hours
48.Mallett not expected to start for Texans (Rotoworld) The Houston Chronicle doesn't expect Ryan Mallett to challenge for the Texans' starting job anytime soon. Analysis: Per beat writer Brian Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick is "locked in" as coach Bill O'Brien's starter. Mallett is being brought to Houston as a quarterback with familiarity of the offense. We don't doubt that Fitzpatrick is the guy for right now, but once he struggles, because he certainly will, the Mallett chants will begin.4 hours
49.Texans | J.J. Watt signs (KFFL) The Houston Texans signed DE J.J. Watt to a new long-term contract Monday, Sept. 1. Watt's extension is a six-year deal worth $100 million, of which $51.876 million is guaranteed money.4 hours
50.Texans | J.J. Watt signs (KFFL) The Houston Texans signed DL J.J. Watt to a new long-term contract on Monday, Sept. 1. Watt's extension is a six-year deal worth $100 million, of which $51.876 million is guaranteed money.4 hours
51.Gabe Jackson the Raiders' starting left ... (Rotoworld) Third-round OG Gabe Jackson is the Raiders' starting left guard. Analysis: Jackson was competing with veteran Khalif Barnes for the job for most of camp, and ended up getting the nod after Barnes supplanted Menelik Watson at right tackle. Jackson is a strong power blocker at 6'3/336. The Raiders' line reads LT Donald Penn, LG Jackson, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Austin Howard, RT Barnes.4 hours
52.J.J. Watt (RotoWire) Watt signed a six-year, $100 million extension with the Texans on Tuesday, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. Analysis: The contract ensures that Watt becomes the NFL's highest-paid defensive player. Through 48 career games, the pass rusher has been a devastating force against all comers, accumulating 36.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and six fumble recoveries. With rookie Jadeveon Clowney's similarly high motor opposite Watt for the first time this season, it remains to be seen what heights the 2012 Defensive Player of Year will scale in the years to come.4 hours
53.Patriots | Seven to practice squad (KFFL) The New England Patriots signed LB Jake Bequette, DL Deontae Skinner, OL Chris Martin, S Kanorris Davis, LS Charley Hughlett, CB Daxton Swanson and WR Josh Boyce to the practice squad on Monday, Sept. 1.5 hours
54.Jets | Sign A.J. Edds (KFFL) The New York Jets re-signed LB A.J. Edds Monday, Sept. 1.8 hours
55.Lions | James Ihedigbo expects to play (KFFL) Detroit Lions SS James Ihedigbo (leg) said he expects to be ready for the team's season opener Monday, Sept. 8.8 hours
56.Packers | Six signed to practice squad (KFFL) The Green Bay Packers signed WR Kevin Dorsey, C Garth Gerhart, WR Alex Gillett, RB Michael Hill, LB Adrian Hubbard and DE Luther Robinson to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.8 hours
57.Cowboys | Seven signed to practice squad (KFFL) The Dallas Cowboys signed WR Tim Benford, DE Kenneth Boatright, C Ronald Patrick, CB Micah Pellerin, LB Keith Smith, LB William Smith and FB Nikita Whitlock to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.8 hours
58.Raiders | Nick Roach looking on (KFFL) Oakland Raiders LB Nick Roach (concussion) was watching practice Monday, Sept. 1, as he is still not all the way from a concussion suffered during the preseason.9 hours
59.Bengals | Ten added to practice squad (KFFL) The Cincinnati Bengals signed OT Dan France, TE Kevin Greene, WR Cobi Hamilton, DT David King, WR Colin Lockett, CB Onterio McCalebb, DE Sam Montgomery, C Trevor Robinson, DT Devon Still and RB James Wilder Jr. to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.10 hours
60.Bengals | Ten added to practice squad (KFFL) The Cincinnati Bengals signed OT Dan France, TE Kevin Greene, WR Cobi Hamilton, DT David King, WR Colin Lockett, CB Onterio McCalebb, DE Sam Montgomery, C Trevor Robinson, DT Devon Still and RB James Wilder Jr. to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.10 hours
61.Bears | More practice squad signings (KFFL) The Chicago Bears signed WR Josh Bellamy, C Taylor Boggs, DT Brandon Dunn, DB Isaiah Frey, OG Ryan Groy, LB DeDe Lattimore, DB Albert Louis-Jean, DB Terrance Mitchell, DE Roy Philon and WR Rashad Ross to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.10 hours
62.Falcons | Two more join practice squad (KFFL) The Atlanta Falcons signed WR Freddie Martino and TE Kyle Miller to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.10 hours
63.Knowshon Morneo Now Atop Dolphins' Depth Chart (FFChamps) Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald says "it is clear Knowshon Moreno is Miami's lead running back."10 hours
64.Seahawks Christine Michael Not Likely Ready For Week 1 (FFChamps) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that running back Christine Michael (hamstring) is "banged up," according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.11 hours
65.Gronk Will Play Week 1 But Not Every Snap (FFChamps) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) said he won't play every snap in Week 1, according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com. Analysis: Less than nine months after Gronk tore his ACL and MCL, we're just happy to see him back on the field. He doesn't have to play every snap to be a fantasy factor. As long as he's on the field when New England gets in the red zone he'll be a threat to post top-five tight end numbers.11 hours
66.Cardinals | Seven added to practice squad (KFFL) The Arizona Cardinals signed LB Jonathan Brown, WR Brittan Golden, TE Andre Hardy, DB Jimmy Legree, OT Kelvin Palmer, OG Anthony Steen and DT Christian Topou to the practice squad Monday, Sept. 1.11 hours
67.Titans | Quentin Groves in the fold (KFFL) The Tennessee Titans signed free-agent LB Quentin Groves (Texans) to an undisclosed contract Monday, Sept. 1.11 hours
68.Titans | Patrick Bailey waived (KFFL) The Tennessee Titans terminated the contract of vested veteran LB Patrick Bailey Monday, Sept. 1, making him a free agent.11 hours
69.Seahawks | Bryan Walters re-signed (KFFL) The Seattle Seahawks re-signed free-agent WR Bryan Walters (Seahawks) to a contract Monday, Sept. 1. Terms of the deal were undisclosed.11 hours
70.Rams | Justice Cunningham on IR (KFFL) The St. Louis Rams re-signed TE Justice Cunningham (ankle) and placed him on the season-ending reserve/injured list Monday, Sept. 1.11 hours
71.Raiders | Kaelin Burnett placed on IR (KFFL) The Oakland Raiders re-signed LB Kaelin Burnett (knee) and placed him on the season-ending reserve/injured list Monday, Sept. 1.11 hours
72.Texans make Watt NFL's highest-paid defe... (Rotoworld) Texans signed LE J.J. Watt to a six-year, $100 million extension, including $51.8 million guaranteed. Analysis: The new contract technically makes Watt the highest paid defender in league history, surpassing Bills DE Mario Williams' six-year, $96 million deal. Watt was already under Texans control through 2015 at a severely underpriced $8.88 million across two years, however, and it appears this extension was simply tacked onto the back end of his rookie deal. Watt spoke publicly about his desire for a long-term commitment from Houston in mid-August, which may have sparked discussi... (More)11 hours
73.NFL | Several clear waivers (KFFL) Free-agent C Josh Allen (Buccaneers), C Thomas Austin (Colts), OG Karim Barton (Browns), CB Akeem Davis (Redskins), LB Larry Dean (Vikings), TE Richard Gordon (Dolphins), TE Marcel Jensen (Vikings), WR Charles X. Johnson (Browns), CB LeQuan Lewis (Jets), WR Anthony McClung (Texans), WR Michael Preston (Titans), CB Josh Victorian (Texans), OT Martin Wallace (Browns), OG Austin Wentworth (Viki... (More)11 hours
74.Radiers Announce Carr Will Start Over Schaub Week 1 (FFChamps) According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Raiders players have been informed that the team will start Derek Carr at quarterback in Week 1. Analysis: Schaub was horrible in the preseason and is dealing with elbow soreness. Carr, a rookie second-rounder, is simply a better option than Schaub at this point and should improve the fantasy value of Oaklands skill position players.12 hours
75.Patriots | Don Jones claimed (KFFL) The New England Patriots claimed CB Don Jones (Dolphins) off waivers Monday, Sept. 1.12 hours
76.Jets | Tim Fugger cut loose (KFFL) The New York Jets placed DE Tim Fugger (ankle) on no-recall waivers from the reserve/injured list Monday, Sept. 1, and he received an injury settlement.12 hours
77.Matt Schaub (RotoWire) Schaub (elbow) returned to practice Monday, Scott Bair of CSN California reports. Analysis: Less than an hour after word leaked of Schaub losing the starting quarterback job to Derek Carr, the veteran fit in his first activity since last Wednesday. Schaub even lined up and completed a short pass, according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune, which doesn't exactly infer that his health has improved much. Nonetheless, Schaub has little chance to regain relevance in the first few weeks, barring a sudden downturn in Carr's play.12 hours
78.Micheal Spurlock (RotoWire) Spurlock will serve as the Bears' kick and punt returner to begin the season, Chicago Tribune reports. Analysis: Spurlock didn't exactly make the Bears forget his predecessor, Devin Hester, after taking five punts for nine combined yards as well as kickoff returns of 18 and 19 yards during the preseason. As such, coach Marc Trestman intimated that Spurlock's hold on the jobs isn't secure, especially after fellow newcomer, Santonio Holmes, ripped off a 30-yard punt return in the fourth exhibition. Additionally, Rashad Ross resides on the practice squad as a specialist who produced kickoff returns of 22, 27, 37, and 42 in three pres... (More)12 hours
79.Letroy Guion (RotoWire) Guion (hamstring) is slated to start at nose tackle in place of B.J. Raji (biceps), Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Analysis: Raji's torn biceps has opened the door for Guion, an offseason addition in free agency, to nab a starting gig. While defensive coordinator Dom Capers said that other players will help cover the void, the uptick in snaps should help Guion produce more than the 24.3 tackles that he averaged in the previous three seasons with the Vikings.12 hours
80.Kevin Minter practicing since August 25 (Rotoworld) Cardinals ILB Kevin Minter has been practicing since August 25 after missing much of camp with a strained pectoral muscle. Analysis: He played in Arizona's preseason finale, grading out well per Pro Football Focus across 28 snaps. Minter is tentatively expected to open the season as a two-down player next to ex-Steeler Larry Foote. With one career NFL defensive snap to his name, Minter is a total wild card. He's not worthy of IDP investment, yet.13 hours
81.Derek Carr (RotoWire) Carr will start Sunday against the Jets, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports. Analysis: The team reconvened Monday to begin its Week 1 preparations, and coach Dennis Allen informed his players that the club will indeed make the switch from Matt Schaub (elbow) to Carr. With Schaub held out of the Raiders' final preseason game due to elbow inflammation, Carr stepped in and completed 11-of-13 passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns against Seattle, sparking a sense of excitement among the fanbase. Oakland had been dead set on starting Schaub after acquiring him via trade in the offseason, but just like with Matt Flynn last season, inj... (More)13 hours
82.Matt Schaub (RotoWire) Schaub (elbow) has been usurped by rookie Derek Carr for the Week 1 start Sunday at the Jets, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports. Analysis: Schaub's bout with a sore elbow hindered his ability to stake much of a claim to the gig, while Derek Carr shined against mostly second- and third-stringers. Carr concluded the preseason by completing 11-of-13 passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns, which was seemingly enough to surpass Schaub, the veteran.13 hours
83.Justice Cunningham (RotoWire) Cunningham was placed on injured reserve Monday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Analysis: There was no word of an injury afflicting the second-year tight end during the preseason, but the move opens up a 53-man roster spot for Case Keenum, who will act as the third quarterback to begin the 2014 campaign.13 hours
84.Antonio Allen (RotoWire) The Jets are hopeful that Allen (concussion) will be able to practice Tuesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports. Analysis: Allen suffered a concussion earlier in the preseason, and was wearing a red no-contact jersey at Friday's practice. It sounds like he should be back soon, though, and could start at corner Week 1 due to all the injuries in the Jets secondary.13 hours
85.Lamar Miller (RotoWire) Though coach Joe Philbin has yet to say whether Miller or Knowshon Moreno will start at running back for the Dolphins in advance of Week 1, Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel suggests that most think that Moreno will emerge as the starter, with Miller as the team's primary backup. Analysis: It's a notion echoed by Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, with the Sun-Sentinel report suggesting that Moreno -- who has recovered from a knee issue that gave Miller an initial edge in the competition -- has been the more decisive runner of the two of late. While we still expect some form of time-share to be in effect out of the gate, based... (More)13 hours
86.Knowshon Moreno (RotoWire) Though coach Joe Philbin has yet to say whether Moreno or Lamar Miller will start at running back for the Dolphins in advance of Week 1, Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel suggests that most think that Moreno will emerge as the starter, with Miller as the team's primary backup. Analysis: It's a notion echoed by Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, with the Sun-Sentinel report suggesting that Moreno has been the more decisive runner of the two of late. While we still expect some form of time-share to be in effect in the Dolphins' backfield out of the gate, based on Monday's speculative reports, the momentum may have tilted in More... (More)13 hours
87.Kevin Norwood (RotoWire) Norwood returned to practice Monday after missing most of training camp with a foot injury, the Seattle Times reports. Analysis: Norwood doesn't figure to be active on gamedays too often this year. He hasn't practiced much and figures to have a steep learning curve as a rookie anyway.14 hours
88.Mike Williams (RotoWire) Williams is listed as the No. 3 receiver on the Bills' first regular season depth chart. Analysis: Williams had been ahead of Robert Woods for a spell, but that was more due to Woods getting in the doghouse briefly with coach Doug Marrone. It sounds like Woods and Sammy Watkins will be the starters, though Williams should see the field nearly as much and is probably the best red-zone target of the three of them. With all three guys having varying skill sets, we can see the team throwing out different combos of two of them during the course of the game, and obviously they'll be out there together in almost every three- and four-wid... (More)14 hours
89.Robert Woods (RotoWire) Woods is back to being listed as a starter on the Bills' first regular season depth chart. Analysis: Woods fell back to No. 3 earlier in the summer after coach Doug Marrone wasn't in love with his practice efforts, but Woods has since really picked up his game, both in practices and the preseason. Mike Williams is now listed as No. 3, though all three of the team's top receivers - Sammy Watkins, Woods, and Williams - should see the field regularly.14 hours
90.Earl Thomas (RotoWire) Thomas will return punts this season, coach Pete Carroll confirmed to 710 ESPN Seattle on Monday. Analysis: Thomas lobbied for the job and looked decent in the role during exhibition games. WR/PR Bryan Walters, who was cut Saturday, was re-signed Monday. So while Thomas will start as the punt returner, Walters could see action too.14 hours
91.Raiders bench Menelik Watson (Rotoworld) The Raiders have benched RT Menelik Watson. Analysis: They're turning back to 32-year-old Khalif Barnes after GM Reggie McKenzie's 2013 second-round pick, Watson, couldn't hold off the veteran journeyman. McKenzie's top-two picks in last year's draft were Watson and CB D.J. Hayden, the latter of whom entered the NFL with major injury concerns, and has stayed injured in the NFL. In 2013, Barnes graded out as PFF's No. 59 tackle among 76 qualifiers. This is a huge disappointment for the Raiders.14 hours
92.Christine Michael (RotoWire) Michael, who missed the exhibition finale Friday with a hamstring injury, is still injured and will be evaluated later this week, the Seattle Times reports. Analysis: Michael is "banged up. We'll figure that out later in the week," coach Pete Carroll said Monday. Even if Michael is healthy for the season opener Thursday, he is likely to be one of Seattle's eight inactives.14 hours
93.Walter Powell (RotoWire) Powell has been claimed on waivers by the Jets, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Analysis: Powell is thus cycled into the Jets' depth wideout mix, replacing Quincy Enunwa, who the team waived on Monday.14 hours
94.Phillip Adams (RotoWire) Adams has been claimed on waivers by the Jets, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Analysis: Adams, who recorded 30 tackles in 16 games for the Raiders last season, adds needed depth to the Jets' cornerback unit, but he'll need a break or two in his favor to merit IDP consideration.14 hours
95.Matt Schaub benched in Oakland (Rotoworld) Matt Schaub has been benched. Analysis: This was an easy prediction a half-year ago. Schaub went Full-Delhomme over his final 16 games with Houston, posting a 13:19 TD-to-INT ratio with a mind-blowing five pick-sixes. Apparently, the only people on the planet who didn't realize he was finished work in the Raiders' front office -- which also traded for Matt Flynn last offseason. Oakland will move forward with second-round pick Derek Carr as its starter. All of Schaub's $8 million base salary for 2014 is guaranteed, so he remains a roster lock. Raiders officials are now trying to s... (More)14 hours
96.Phil Bates (RotoWire) Bates, the last wide receiver added to the roster, was released Monday, 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Analysis: Bates impressed in camp and grabbed the last WR spot on the roster over semi-favorite Bryan Walters. On Monday, the Seahawks rethought the move and replaced Bates with Walters, though it likely hinged on Walters' ability to return punts rather than anything Bates lacked. Bates likely will be added to the practice squad.14 hours
97.Bryan Walters (RotoWire) Walters, who was released on cutdown day Saturday, was signed to the active roster Monday, 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Analysis: It was a little surprising when Walters, who had a big camp and can return punts, was released. But Bates, the last WR kept, had a good camp too. The Seahawks rethought the situation Monday, though, released Bates for Walters, who likely will contribute to punt returning more than the offense.14 hours
98.Quincy Enunwa (RotoWire) Enunwa has been waived by the Jets, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Analysis: Look for Enunwa, drafted by the Jets in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, 209th overall, to head to the team's practice squad once he clears waivers.14 hours
99.Percy Harvin (RotoWire) Harvin returned to practice Sunday after missing the last two days of practice last week and the exhibition finale against the Raiders, the Seattle Times reports. Analysis: Harvin was out for "personal reasons." He was a full go in practice, though, so apparently there's nothing to be concerned about.14 hours
100.Case Keenum (RotoWire) The Rams have claimed Keenum on waivers from the Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Analysis: Per Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Keenam arrives in St. Louis as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind Shaun Hill and Austin Davis, but in the wake of Sam Bradford's season-ending injury, the situation is fluid enough that it's conceivable once Keenum is up to speed with the Rams' offense, he could potentially enter the team's starting equation down the road.14 hours
