DeShone Kizer to start 3rd preseason game
DeShone Kizer - QB, Cleveland Browns

DeShone Kizer has been named the starter for the Browns' third preseason game.

Dynasty Analysis

Kizer remains a raw talent, but dynasty owners might get production from him sooner rather than later. The starter of the third preseason game has traditionally been the regular season starter. The 2016 second round pick should be bumped up rookie boards notch or two, especially in 2QB and superflex formats.

CJ Prosise has a strained groin
CJ Prosise - RB, Seattle Seahawks

CJ Prosise missed practice Tuesday with a strained groin he apparently suffered in pregame warmups on Friday.

Dynasty Analysis

Prosise has dealt with a list of injuries since coming to Seattle and it's apparent the coaching staff is starting to lose faith in their talented running back. His absence is opening the door for Chris Carson to get more reps and possibly pass him on the depth chart. It's a frustrating turn of events for a player who has proven to be talented and productive but rarely healthy.

Arizona activates Deone Bucannon from PUP
Deone Bucannon - LB, Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals have activated Deone Bucannon off the PUP list.

Dynasty Analysis

Bucannon had ankle surgery in May. He'll return to his OLB spot. This is good news for the Cardinals defense. Bucannon brings plenty of fire and leadership to the table. His OLB designation does ding him some, but he's still a solid producer.

Trevor Siemian to remain Broncos starter
Trevor Siemian - QB, Denver Broncos

Tervor Siemian has been named the starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos.

Dynasty Analysis

Siemian did a nice job last year as he posted 3,401 passing yards and 18 touchdowns with just ten interceptions on the year. Unfortunately, that's likely his ceiling as he doesn't really look like a player who hasn't already fulfilled his athletic potential. The Broncos likely wanted to see Paxton Lynch win this job but he just hasn't shown anything in two years. Siemian will be best served a low-end QB2 and Lynch is getting to the point where many owners will start bailing on him.

DeShone Kizer takes a step back
DeShone Kizer - QB, Cleveland Browns

DeShone Kizer completed 8-of-13 passes for 74 yards in the Browns' second preseason game.

Dynasty Analysis

Kizer looked to have sparked the offense but that doesn't mean a whole lot since Brock Osweiler started the game and was again less than stellar. However, Kizer took at least two unnecessary sacks and threw a pretty awful interception that was called back due to a penalty. Overall, it wasn't a great night for Kizer, who proved he still has a long way to go.

Odell Beckham seemingly avoids serious injury
Odell Beckham Jr. - WR, New York Giants

Odell Beckham suffered a sprained ankle in the Giants second preseason game.

Dynasty Analysis

Beckham caught three passes for 37 yards before exiting the game with a lower leg injury. The hit he took was a scary one as it looked as it he could have suffered a serious knee injury. As it stands, the Giants are calling it a sprained ankle and want him to undergo further evaluation. It looks like OBJ has avoided anything serious, though "further evaluation" is always ominous. Regardless, this is likely the last we've seen of him in the preseason.

Brock Osweiler predictably uninspiring
Brock Osweiler - QB, Cleveland Browns

Brock Osweiler completed 6-of-8 passes for 25 yards and one interception in the Browns second preseason game.

Dynasty Analysis

At this point, everyone has likely seen enough to know what Osweiler really is. He has spurts of effectiveness but is far too inaccurate and unpredictable to be relied on as anything more than a backup. He belongs on dynasty waiver wires.

Anquan Boldin retires suddenly
Anquan Boldin - WR, Detroit Lions

Bills wide receiver Anquan Boldin retired unexpectedly Sunday citing his desire to do more humanitarian work. 

Dynasty Analysis

Boldin had only been with the Bills for a couple of weeks. You only rostered him if you are a win-now squad. This has little dynasty impact, but it is an intriguing story to be sure. This will open up more opportunities for players like Zay Jones and makes it even harder on Tyrod Taylor this season.

Josh Dobbs struggles again
Joshua Dobbs - QB, Pittsburgh Steelers

Josh Dobbs completed 10-of-19 passes for just 70 yards and an interception in the Steelers second preseason game.

Dynasty Analysis

It's fair to wonder just what the Steelers thought they were getting with Dobbs because he's been abysmal through two games. The interception thrown was an ugly shovel pass attempt that should have never been attempted. Dobbs may yet turn into a good player but he looks light years away from relevance in fantasy or reality.

Justin Hunter catches late touchdown
Justin Hunter - WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

Justin Hunter caught three passes for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Steelers second preseason game.

Dynasty Analysis

Meanwhile, Sammie Coates had three catches for 20 yards. It certainly sounds like these two are battling for one roster spot and while neither was overly impressive (Hunter was overthrown on a nice long route late as well), it seems Hunter is in the lead.
