Fred Jackson    RB   Seattle Seahawks
 
Jackson has signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Robert Turbin continuing dealing with a high ankle sprain, Jackson appears in line to step into a backup role in the Seattle backfield behind Marshawn Lynch and ahead of Christine Michael. While Jackson is zero threat to challenge Lynch's position atop the Seattle RB depth chart, his new assignment puts him an injury away from fantasy relevance and makes him a worthy late-round target for those looking insure Lynch.
Karlos Williams    RB   Buffalo Bills
 
Williams indicated after returning to practice Friday that he "most definitely" expects to be ready to play in Week 1, the Buffalo News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Williams, who is bouncing back from surgery to deal with an unspecified issue that he says was the result of "a freak accident," suggested that he's likely to contribute on special teams out of the gate, as he works himself back into into the Bills' running back mix, which also includes banged-up starter LeSean McCoy (hamstring), as well as Boobie Dixon and Bryce Brown.
Kyle Brindza    K   Tampa Bay Buccaneers
 
With the Bucs having released Connor Barth and waived Patrick Murray, Brindza in line to start the coming season as the team's kicker, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Brindza impressed by connecting on 57- and 55-yard field goals in Thursday's preaseson game against the Dolphins. In the context of kicking behind the re-tooled Bucs' attack, a wait-and-see approach is in order, though if things click for the team on that front early on, Brindza could be worthy of an in-season pickup.
Storm Johnson    RB   Free Agent
 
The Jaguars cut Johnson on Friday, ESPN.com reports.

LeSean McCoy    RB   Buffalo Bills
 
McCoy (left hamstring) -- who had indicated in a text to ESPN's Josina Anderson earlier Friday that he expected to be ready for Week 1 -- later backed off some on that stance, per ESPN.com. Specifically, when asked about his status for the Bills' Sept. 13 game against the Colts, McCoy -- who practiced in a limited fashion Friday -- said "we'll wait and see."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

For his part, coach Rex Ryan reiterated on the matter, "I'm hoping that he will be available to us. And I think the only thing I mentioned was 'cautiously optimistic,' and I remain optimistic." In any case, there remains a possibility that if McCoy is able to play in Week 1, he could be on a pitch count, given that at this stage he still isn't doing too much running or cutting at practice. Considering the way the Jets designated injuries under Ryan, a highly plausible outcome is that McCoy approaches the Bills' 9/13 1:00 ET kickoff with an official "questionable" tag on the team's final Week 1 injury report.
Pierre Garcon    WR   Washington Redskins
 
Garcon was complimentary of starting quarterback Kirk Cousins in a recent interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, referring to the signal-caller as a "natural-born leader".

Matt Barkley    QB   Philadelphia Eagles
 
Barkley was traded to the Cardinals on Friday for a conditional seventh-round draft pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Philadelphia will only get the draft pick if Barkley is on the Cardinals' roster for six games this season. The move likely means the Cardinals will release Logan Thomas, and it locks in Tim Tebow as the Eagles' No. 3 quarterback. Drew Stanton should still be ahead of Barkley as Carson Palmer's top backup.
T.J. Yeldon    RB   Jacksonville Jaguars
 
Yeldon will start against the Panthers in Week 1, according to the Florida Times-Union reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Not exactly breaking news, but it's a nice reminder that Yeldon is the rare rookie running back to essentially be handed a three-down role. Of course, the Jaguars will also mix in Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart, as they have a long-term investment in Yeldon's continued success.
Duke Johnson    RB   Cleveland Browns
 
Johnson is in the NFL's concussion protocol, but the Browns have no other update on his status, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

On pretty much any other roster, a rookie third-round running back would be relegated to the bench if he missed most of training camp and the preseason because of injuries. However, the Browns rightfully seem unexcited about the second-year duo of Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West, which leaves open the possibility that Johnson could head into Week 1 with a key role, if he clears the necessarily hurdles in the concussion protocol. Though he may eventually have the chance to lead a messy backfield, Johnson will probably start his season -- be it in Week 1 or later on -- getting most of his work on passing downs.
Fred Jackson    RB   Free Agent
 
Jackson left Seattle without a contract, but the Seahawks are still interested in signing him, ESPN.com reports.

Alshon Jeffery    WR   Chicago Bears
 
Bears head coach John Fox said the team will probably keep quiet about Jeffery's calf injury heading into a Week 1 matchup with the Packers, the Associated Press reports."We're gonna probably say as little as we can because we don't really want to help our opponent," Fox said.
