Ahmad Bradshaw hoping to play Week 1

Bradshaw ‘real close’ to return: It’s been a fairly quiet preseason for Ahmad Bradshaw, who has spent much of the time rehabbing from offseason foot surgery. But Colts head coach Chuck Pagano says he believes Indy’s new running back  addition should be ready to go when the team suits up for Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders. Bradshaw has been fairly under the radar this summer, but could be a productive flex option in many leagues.

Broyles as Lions No. 3 WR?: There had been high hopes that Ryan Broyles could rebound from knee surgery to take over as Detroit’s No. 2 receiver. That doesn’t look too likely right now. Broyles’ knee has been balky at times during the preseason and it appears that Patrick Edwards has landed the gig — at least temporarily. If Broyles can get stronger, he still appears to be the man for the job. In an offense that throws the ball as much as Detroit does, it’s worth taking a late flier on the former Oklahoma star.

Dwyer release adds no clarity: Jonathan Dwyer was one of the more notable names among this weekend’s NFL cuts and while it might have been a matter of finances, it doesn’t do much to clarify the Steelers backfield situation. With Le’Veon Bell on the shelf for the foreseeable future, some combination of Isaac RedmanLaRod Stephens-Howling and Felix Jones will handle the rushing duties in Pittsburgh. Neither of them have been stellar enough to warrant being a workhorse back … which means none of them are worthy of any serious fantasy consideration.
