Raiders' Antonio Brown participates in Saturday's walkthrough

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown "took all the reps" in Saturday's walkthrough.

What It Means:

According to head coach Jon Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr, Brown is ready to contribute despite missing time with a foot ailment. "He came in and, no mental errors, and in this offense, that’s not easy to do," said Carr to the media. "You can tell Antonio’s been studying because he came out and didn’t miss a beat. He was a part of everything we did today.”

Heading into the 2019-2020 season, numberFire's power rankings rate Brown as the ninth overall wide receiver. Our models project the 31-year old to haul in 103.5 receptions for 1,260.2 yards and 9.6 touchdowns on 156.9 targets.

Chargers' Derwin James suffers a right foot fracture

Los Angeles Chargers defensive back Derwin James has been diagnosed with a right foot fracture.

What It Means:

"I would like for him to play in 2019, but I don’t know that for sure," said Chargers' head coach Anthony Lynn. It looks like James will be out for multiple weeks if not months. The second year safety will be hard to replace after ranking as one of the best in coverage last year. This is a huge blow to the Chargers' pass defense.

Heading into the 2019-2020 season, numberFire's power rankings rate the Chargers as the seventh best pass defense. In Week 1 of the regular season, Los Angeles will face a Colts pass offense ranked fifth if quarterback Andrew Luck is healthy.

Patriots' Josh Gordon reinstated by the NFL, eligble to play Week 1

New England Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon has been reinstated to the NFL and will not have to serve a suspension.

What It Means:

Gordon will not be able to report to the Patriots facility until Sunday and will not be eligible to play in next week's preseason game. However, he will be available to play Week 1 of the regular season, giving the Patriots' receiving corp a much-needed boost.

Gordon caught 41 passes for 737 yards and 4 touchdowns on 71 targets last season for the Pats and Cleveland Browns.

Chargers' Keenan Allen (ankle) reportedly expected to play in Week 1 of the regular season

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen suffered an ankle injury "not considered to be serious" during this week's practice.

What It Means:

According to ESPN, Allen's injury "could knock him out of the Chargers’ remaining three preseason games" but the team still expects him to be ready for the start of the regular season. If he can stay healthy, fantasy players should expect Allen to lead the team in targets, catches, and yardage as their top receiver.

For the 2019-2020 season, our models project Allen to produce 100.7 receptions for 1,310.7 yards and 7.6 touchdowns on 146.4 targets. Allen is numberFire's fifth overall ranked wide receiver.

Chiefs beat: Carlos Hyde not making final roster

Kansas City Chiefs running back Carlos Hyde will not make the final 53-man roster, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

What It Means:

This stems from Hyde's underwhelming showing in the Chiefs' preseason opener, but Taylor hedges by saying Hyde could retain a roster spot with a "good performance" on Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Hyde winds up not making final cuts, it would be a boon for sixth-rounder Darwin Thompson's outlook. Damien Williams is expected to handle lead back duties for Kansas City.

numberFire's models believe Hyde will make the roster and serve as Williams' primary backup this season, with 9.6 touches and 36.6 yards per game. He's the RB43 in our preseason fantasy rankings.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
