Exhibition games can give little indication of what is to come in the regular season, though that isn’t necessarily the case in Week 3 of the preseason. It’s the one week where teams usually play their starters for at least two quarters, and many of the

The third game of the NFL preseason is traditionally the “dress rehearsal,” the week where most teams play their starters into the second half. It’s the one week of preseason that most feels like a real football game, even though we’re still waiting two weeks for the games to start mattering in the schedule. So if you’re looking for final starting lineups and depth charts getting settled, look no further than the third preseason game. This is probably the most crucial weekend in fantasy football preparation. After this week’s games, draft season really kicks into gear as owners get their teams set up for the season-long grind ahead. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some potential sleeper

Giants TE Evan Engram is officially a professional after playing in the preseason opener against the Steelers last week. However, those first-game nerves will still be there when the Giants take on the Browns Monday night.  "It's still going to be kind of nerve-wracking and exciting," he told Giants.com's Michael Eisen. "I'm really pumped about it. It was a really cool feeling out there, getting out there and having your uniform on and being out there warming up. It kind of really hit me in that moment, and I don't think it's ever going to go away. I'm really excited, I can't wait for Monday night.

You could argue many people’s favorite part of preparing for a fantasy football draft is figuring out sleeper picks and then bragging about how smart he or she is when it comes to fruition.

Baseball legend Hank Aaron said Colin Kaepernick is "getting a raw deal" as supporters rallied in front of NFL headquarters in New York on Wednesday on behalf of the controversial quarterback. Aaron told BlackAmericaWeb.com in an online video published Wednesday that Kaepernick is being blackballed by NFL owners who disagree with his politics. "If you look at all the quarterbacks in the league right now, I think you have to say he is one, two, three, four.

With Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall nursing injuries, a couple of young wide receivers are getting a chance to show the New York Giants what they can do. Roger Lewis Jr. and Travis Rudolph came to training camp looking for jobs, and with the season opener against Dallas less than three weeks away the pair remains in the running to make the roster. Obviously, the more important news Wednesday was the status of Beckham (ankle) and Marshall (shoulder), who were injured in Monday night's preseason game in Cleveland.

On Wednesday afternoon the NFL will be forced again to confront a story it must wish to go away. The NFL season begins in two weeks and the quarterback who took the San Francisco 49ers to within seven yards of winning the Super Bowl four years ago does not have a job.
