RB Bijan Robinson, Atlanta Falcons
He played on 70% of snaps with the starters. In addition, his 60% route participation and 5 opportunities on his 12 snaps justifies his first-round price tag.
TE Darren Waller, New York Giants
His 80% route participation and 40% targets per route run with the starters screams major upside. If he stays healthy, he’s smashing.
RB Dameon Pierce, Houston Texans
He played an every-down role and was on the field for 100% of snaps with the starters. He was an early down RB last year, and when you consider Devin Singletary’s usage last week, there’s a chance Pierce has a new passing down role come Week 1. More reason to take shots at Pierce at his price.
RB James Cook, Buffalo Bills
He played on 88% of snaps and ran a route on 67% of Josh Allen’s dropbacks this weekend. Probably one of the best values in fantasy football drafts right now. Let everyone else believe that this usage will decline heavily because Damien Harris didn’t play.
WR Skyy Moore, Kansas City Chiefs
He ran the same amount of routes as Travis Kelce with the Chiefs starters and played only behind MVS. He even got usage in 2 WR sets, which is a great sign that he’ll be getting solid playing time even when Kadarius Toney is back.
RB Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos
Javonte Williams defies the odds and comes back to play a significant role in a preseason game. He and Perine split time 50/50, but this was Williams’ first game back. Perine’s playing the receiving back role, but Javonte saw 5 targets on 8 routes run, with 8 opportunities total on 13 snaps with the starters.
RB Devon Achane, Miami Dolphins
He didn’t take a snap with the starters for a second straight week, is still relatively low on the depth chart, and is now dealing with a shoulder injury. If he has a fantasy impact, it might be later in the season.
TE Greg Dulcich, Denver Broncos
Greg Dulcich and Adam Trautman continue to split routes run with the first team. It doesn’t look like Dulcich is worth betting on at his ADP as it stands.
TE Luke Musgrave, Green Bay Packers
He continues to play 100% of snaps with the starters, and once again ran a route on 100% of Jordan Love’s dropbacks. He led the starters with 3 targets on 9 routes run. Easy Top-12 TE candidate. Don’t sleep on the other rookie Jayden Reed, who is the Packers’ primary slot WR.
