RG III a fantasy football bargain?

Not starting Week 1 makes Robert Griffin III an unappealing fantasy player at the moment. However, if he can get on the field, his legs give him fantasy value. Best bargains (Insider)

Asked Sean Payton if K Dustin Hopkins' 53-yard FG miss left Saints back to Square 1 in kicker battle instead of confirming their decision. "That's a good question ... It's a good distance, he had the leg for it, he just missed it wide," Payton said, explaining that they'll go back now and really look closely at everything in Hopkins vs. Zach Hocker. "(Hopkins) has been fairly consistent in camp. He's striking the ball well. And yet you're hoping - I was hoping, certainly we all were hoping there would be a wider margin with either of those players."

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

With the Falcons trading for veteran guard Andy Levitre and some uncertainty regarding Jake Matthews (back) and Joe Hawley (knee), the opening night line vs. the Eagles has the potential to be LT Tyler Polumbus, LG Levitre, C James Stone, RG Chris Chester, and RT Ryan Schraeder.

Rate of 2-point conversion attempts slowed in final 2 weeks of preseason but still finished at 20 pct of all TDs, per ESPN Stats & Information. That’s twice the 2014 preseason rate and four times that of the 2014 regular season. Still not sure what it bodes for 2015 but longer PAT clearly a factor.

Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter

NFL preseason rushing leader: Lions' Zach Zenner, 183 yards. Receiving leader: Redskins' Rashad Ross, 266 yards. Both should have won jobs.

Mike Rodak @mikerodak

Bills have made 18 roster moves, trimming down from 75 to 57. Need to get down to 54 by tomorrow.

Care to try a carrier pigeon?

The Bengals have to get down to their 53-man roster limit by 4 p.m. ET Saturday. If they plan to cut LB Chris Carter, well, a call to let him know won't do the trick -- he plans to turn off his phone. "If you're going to cut me, you have to come find me," he says. A life-changing weekend
