|9/4/2015||Cody Parkey, Phi, K|
|Parkey was in uniform, but is dealing with a groin injury and didn't play Thursday.
Analysis: Continue to monitor Parkey's situation because he's a solid fantasy option.
|9/4/2015||TJ Jones, Det, WR|
|Jones boosted his chances of staying in Detroit, turning a short pass into a 64-yard touchdown to help the Lions beat the Buffalo Bills 17-10 Thursday night.
Analysis: Jones - who missed all of his rookie season last year because of a shoulder injury - played extensively in part because after another wide receiver was injured.
|9/4/2015||Thaddeus Lewis, Cle, QB|
|Lewis had a difficult night filling in at QB for Josh McCown and the injured Johnny Manziel on Thursday at Chicago.
Analysis: He got sacked six times and had an interception returned 25 yards for a touchdown by Chicago's Sherrod Martin in the third quarter.
|9/4/2015||Montee Ball, Den, RB|
|Ball ran 16 times for just 27 yards Thursday.
Analysis: Ball slid down the depth chart this summer and was trying to convince coach Gary Kubiak he should keep four running backs. His poor performance might not matter, though.
|9/4/2015||Tyler Lockett, Sea, WR|
|Lockett scored his third touchdown of the preseason on a 63-yard reception from Russell Wilson on Thursday.
Analysis: Lockett was drafted by Seattle for his ability as a returner on special teams, but will likely be in the wide receiver rotation when the season begins.
|9/4/2015||Jarryd Hayne, SF, RB|
|On Thursday, Hayne carried 10 times for 58 yards, caught a pair of passes for 17 yards, and returned three punts for 43 yards.
Analysis: The former Australian rugby league star once again made his case for a spot on the 53-man roster.

|9/3/2015||Brett Hundley, GB, QB|
|Hundley threw for four scores in a 38-10 win Thursday night over winless New Orleans.
Analysis: A fifth-round draft pick out of UCLA, Hundley flashed promise for a second straight game in showing zip on his passes while moving the offense effectively. He was 16 of 23 for 236 yards. Hundley appears ticketed to be the third-string quarterback in Green Bay behind NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and Scott Tolzien.
|9/3/2015||Tevin Coleman, Atl, RB|
|Coleman ran for 56 yards on eight carries in Thursday's preseason finale.
Analysis: The rookie could open the season as the starter. He would have some solid fantasy value if that's the case.

|Tebow threw two touchdown passes and an interception in his final opportunity to make Philadelphia's roster, and the Eagles fell to the New York Jets 24-18 on Thursday night.
Analysis: Tebow, competing with Matt Barkley for the No. 3 quarterback job, flashed some of the playmaking and inconsistency that have made him so polarizing. He finished 11 of 17 for 189 yards, and added 32 yards on four rushes.
|9/3/2015||Sean Renfree, Atl, QB|
|Renfree threw a touchdown pass and led another scoring drive to overshadow the preseason debut of Rex Grossman as the Atlanta Falcons held off the Baltimore Ravens 20-19 on Thursday night in their final preseason game.
Analysis: Renfree made the most of his final bid to open the season as Matt Ryan's backup. He completed 10 of 15 passes for 75 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown pass to Carlton Mitchell.
|9/3/2015||Tom Brady, NE, QB|
|Brady is not in uniform for the New England Patriots' final preseason game, against the New York Giants.
Analysis: Hours after a federal judge's decision to overturn Brady's four-game suspension handed down by the NFL in the "Deflategate" scandal, Brady is not on the sideline for the game. Several fans chanted "BRADY, BRADY," when the team came out of the locker room into the bowl of the stadium, but the quarterback was nowhere to be seen.
|9/3/2015||Jamison Crowder, Was, WR|
|The NFL says it has concluded its investigation into Crowder in connection to a domestic violence episode, and he will not face discipline from the league.
Analysis: Crowder was a fourth-round draft pick out of Duke. In June, Crowder's Instagram feed briefly included photographs of a woman who said she was abused, and the Redskins and NFL said then that they were looking into the matter.
|9/3/2015||DeVante Parker, Mia, WR|
|Parker made his exhibition season debut after recovering from foot surgery. He played briefly, was targeted three times and caught one pass for 11 yards for Miami (1-3).
Analysis: The receiver from Louisville took part in practice Monday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his left foot in June, and it had been uncertain whether he would be available for the season opener next week.
|9/3/2015||Jason Pierre-Paul, NYG, DE|
|It has been confirmed that the embattled Pierre-Paul will re-join the Giants next week by owner John Mara.
Analysis: Pierre-Paul foolishly hurt his right index finger during some July 4 fireworks tomfoolery. He has yet to meet with the club, though Mara said before the Giants' win over the Super Bowl champion Patriots on Thursday that the star defensive end will report to the Giants next week.
|9/3/2015||Trindon Holliday, Oak, WR|
|Holliday was cut by Oakland.
Analysis: Holliday was signed by the Raiders in June.
|9/3/2015||T.J. Ward, Den, S|
|Ward has been suspended for the first game of the 2015 regular season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
Analysis: The Broncos say that Ward's suspension stems from misdemeanor charges dating back to an incident from May 2014. Those charges were later dropped.
