Faraz's Preseason Week 3 Notebook




Jaylen Warren


Once again, Jaylen Warren continues to eat in Najee Harris’ early-down workload, and impresses while doing so. Najee played 63% of snaps with the first team on Thursday, and it wasn’t just passing down snaps for Warren.


Seahawks Backfield


Don’t expect Zach Charbonnet to be the passing down back when Kenneth Walker returns to action. Without Walker, DeeJay Dallas has been taking Charbonnet off the field on passing downs. We could see a 3-man RB rotation in Seattle.


Bears Backfield


Roschon Johnson started the game on Saturday as the passing down back, but both Khalil Herbert and D’onta Foreman got early down work with the starters. This could be a 3-man backfield to start the year.


Bills Backfield


We got a look with Damien Harris back in the lineup for the Bills. With the first team, James Cook logged 69% of snaps (nice), and ran a route on 57% of Josh Allen’s dropbacks. As expected, Harris is the goal line back. Cook is still a solid RB2 candidate.


Colts Backfield


Deon Jackson seems like the Colts starter for now - he started the last two weeks of the preseason, but things can change. Probably will be a timeshare either way, but Evan Hull doesn’t seem too far behind him.


Dalton Schultz


Dalton Schultz only ran a route on 50% of dropbacks with the first team on Sunday, and played on less than 50% of snaps. That’s not ideal if you’re considering him your starting fantasy TE this season.


Jaguars Backfield


Tank Bigsby’s role has grown, with the split moving to 64/32 in Travis Etienne’s favor. Etienne had only a 57% rushing share with Tank getting only 2 less carries than him with Trevor Lawrence and the first team.


Garrett Wilson & Aaron Rodgers


Garrett Wilson was targeted on 37.5% of Aaron Rodgers’ throws, including a TD, in their first game action on Saturday. No one else had more than 1 target. Expecting a funnel passing game to Wilson, similar to what we saw in Green Bay with Davante Adams.


Adam Thielen


Adam Thielen led the Panthers with a 50% target share from Bryce Young on Friday with DJ Chark dealing with an injury. Thielen seems to be a solid startable WR you can draft late.
