PAmeer Abdullah
RB DET (10)
1 hour ago

Abdullah (shoulder) gained 16 yards on four carries and failed to haul in his lone target in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Abdullah started but played limited snaps in his first game action since last season, getting all of his touches during the first quarter. He did appear to have a 15-yard touchdown scamper on the first play of the second quarter, but it was called back due to a teammate's holding penalty. In addition to starting on offense, Abdullah may get some opportunities in the return game, though his role as the lead back could limit his special teams contributions to crucial situations. He resumed contact work in practice last week, and there's been no suggestion of any setback with his shoulder.

Cameron Meredith
WR CHI (9)
1 hour ago

Meredith caught four of his eight pass targets for 64 yards and a touchdown Saturday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Meredith played once the starters were long gone from the contest, and he did the majority of his damage when third-string quarterback Connor Shaw (leg) was on the field. On one drive, he caught three passes for 51 yards, which included a 16-yard score. He'd need injuries to the Bears starting receivers to see enough targets to be a fantasy option.

Daniel Braverman
WR CHI (9)
1 hour ago

Braverman caught both of his pass targets for 16 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Braverman entered the contest with the deep reserves and appears to be third on the depth chart at slot receiver for the Bears behind starter Eddie Royal and Marc Mariani.

Marc Mariani
WR CHI (9)
1 hour ago

Mariani caught one of his two pass targets for eight yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Mariani caught his only pass on the first play of the game, as he was manning the slot for Eddie Royal (concussion) who was inactive. He'll need Royal to miss regular season time to see enough targets to be useful for most fantasy teams.

Rob Housler
TE CHI (9)
1 hour ago

Housler caught his only pass target for 17 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Housler didn't see his target until the deep reserves were on the field in the fourth quarter. He currently appears to be behind Tony Moeaki for backup duties as the receiving duties behind starting tight end Zach Miller (concussion).

Rashad Ross
WR WAS (9)
1 hour ago

Ross hauled in one reception for five yards in Friday's preseason win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Ross had a less-than-noteworthy performance on Friday night, as he looks to solidify a spot on the final 53-man roster. He'll likely receive more reps in the preseason finale next Thursday as head coach Jay Gruden has already ruled out the starters. Look for Ross to line up alongside Ryan Grant and Maurice Harris with Josh Doctson (Achilles) and Jamison Crowder (knee) both nursing injuries.

QTony Moeaki
TE CHI (9)
1 hour ago

Moeaki (hamstring) caught his only pass target for six yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Moeaki caught his pass with the first-team offense on the first drive of the third quarter. Based on his usage over the last two weeks, he appears on track to be Zach Miller's backup as the team's primary receiving option at tight end.

Jordan Howard
RB CHI (9)
2 hours ago

Howard had four carries for eight yards and caught his only pass target for an additional eight yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Howard entered the contest after the Bears had played three other running backs, which seems to indicate that he's currently the team's fourth option at the position. In addition, his performance against the Chiefs reserves provided little reason for optimism that a quick breakout is on the horizon.

Justin Forsett
RB BAL (8)
2 hours ago

Forsett had two catches for 14 yards and two carries for zero yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett started and got the first touch, but Kenneth Dixon (leg/knee) was also heavily involved from the outset, with Terrance West even mixing in a little, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. Forsett's lack of playing time this preseason suggests his starting job is safe, but his small workload has allowed the Ravens to get an extended luck at Dixon and West, both of whom have impressed. Dixon did exit Saturday's game with an apparent knee injury, but only after gaining 41 yards on six carries. Furthermore, Javorius Allen could also be involved in the offense, particularly on passing downs. Forsett figures to start Week 1 against Buffalo, but the extent of his workload remains to be seen.

QKa'Deem Carey
RB CHI (9)
2 hours ago

Carey had four carries for nine yards and caught one of his two pass targets for an additional 10 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Carey entered the contest to start the second half, playing one series with much of the first-string offense on the field. He did play before Jordan Howard, so it would appear that he's currently the first in line to see early-down work if Jeremy Langford struggles or misses time.
