Here it is, another week of NFL preseason games.  Hopefully your fantasy football players are more involved this week, so we might get a better idea about how each team will look like in the regular season.  It’s critical to keep up with the NFLvaccy changing landscape, because it gives you a jump on the waiver wire and possible trade scenarios.  My efforts concentrated on the younger players and/or new team additions.  Here are some quick observations based on around the first three-quarters of each game:

Titans/Saints

The young superstar receiver, Brandin Cooks, who was so active the week before had a quiet game.  He did get behind the defense a few times, but only connected once.  The rookie catches the ball in stride and has great sideline awareness.  Khiry Robinson, the second year back, showed some versatility lining up in the backfield and out wide.  He has quick feet, can get small in the hole, but did not stand out during the game.  Taking advantage of the preseason is exactly what Ryan Griffin is doing. The current third string quarterback is showing more touch and connected deep downfield.  Defensive end Cameron Jordan continues to dominate the line of scrimmage, throwing offensive linemen around, so he can get make the play.  The ball hawk award should go to safety Kenny Vaccaro.  He plays physical, forcing fumbles, and attacking on blitzes going untouched to sack the opposition.

At dynasty blitz, I am watching each preseason game and let my readers known what I’m seeing.  The NFL landscape is very fluid, so please consider that this is only the beginning.  My efforts concentrated on the younger players and/or new barrteam additions.  Here are some quick observations after watching the first half of each game:

Saints/Rams

New Orleans seems committed to running the ball a bit more.  Former first round pick, Mark Ingram, ran hard and powerfully, using a stiff-arm while looking more physical than he did at any time last season.  The back bounced off defenders and pulled out a rare spin move.  Backup rusher, Khiry Robinson, looked good in space, caught the ball well, and jumped over the line of scrimmage to score a short touchdown.  Training camp reports have been positive about second year quarterback Ryan Griffin.  The signal caller has a quick release, shows good pocket presence stepping up to get away from danger, but still needs work.  If you are looking for speed/quickness, Brandin Cooks is willing to answer the call.  The rookie offensive weapon returned punts, ran inside and outside routes taking a few hard shots in the middle of the field.
