I know Week 2 just ended but this is the Pre-Season Week that matters most. A lot of questions will become clearer this week as teams will use their in-season game plan and players for around 3 full quarters.

What are some of the things you are looking for coming into this week?

What players need to show something?

What players are you looking for to kind of define their role?

God knows I will be my holding my breath the entire weekend the avoid injury.

This is the closest to in-season games we will see before Week 1. What are you looking at?

Haha whoops..forgot about the Monday game. Well after tomorrow Week 2 is over lol

I'm real interested to see how Mathews looks in extended work. How he is used in the offense, and how he looks overall. Through limited action in 2 games it has been positive but I am still very skeptical.

Eager to see what Bell does tomorrow. After that, Week 3 is obviously a big week for guys like L. Miller, L. Bell, Hillman/Ball. I want to see if Lacy plays well again. Would like to see Tavon again, see if he is going to be that PPR guy I'm hoping he is. Week 3 is definitely going to be must watch.
1st Fantasy pick ever Thurman Thomas #3 Overall. Should have taken Jerry Rice.

I think we have a lot of suspicions on a variety of players at this point, and I think those are likely just going to be confirmed during the Week 3 game.

I'm mainly only looking out for major injuries during the Week 3 games, since the majority of NFL starters will be more at-risk as they see more time on the field.

After that Dustin Keller injury, anyone drafting the weekend of the Preseason Week 3 games needs to remain on high alert.

My next draft is on the night of the 24th (8:00 PM EST), which means all of the following teams will have games in progress during my draft:

Jets
Giants
Browns
Colts
Bucs
Dolphins
Chiefs
Steelers
Eagles
Jaguars
Falcons
Titans
Rams
Broncos
Bengals
Cowboys

Chargers and Cardinals will likely be playing just after my draft completes.

Saints, Texans, Vikings, and 49ers will have their 3rd preseason game the night after my draft completes.

Patriots, Lions, Panthers, Ravens, Seahawks, Packers, Bears, and Raiders play on Thursday/Friday, so their starters should be mostly safe if they leave those games alive.

Very interested in seeing Sudfeld and how he is used. Value can rise tremendously this week.

Agree with this.

A lot of questions could be answered today. Also excited to see Calvin back on the field but hopefully he takes it easy and just stays healthy.

This. I'm also excited to see how Cameron looks this week. As well as the Philadelphia offense, I'm interested to see them potentially open up their playbook a little more in week 3.

Please, for the sake of all of us whom have already drafted, no injuries. Let's just call a truce.

And those of us who haven't drafted yet, please no fliers blow up to inflate your ADP anymore...

Knowing my luck so far this year, I had to pick up Joique Bell as Reggie Bush is definitely going down with an injury tonight. Woe is me.

Wish I wasn't working to watch these games tonight ugh!

Bush has not looked very good running the ball all preseason imo, but the guy will definitely be an asset for the Lions in the pass game.
