With training camps open, it’s time to start looking at those players who are competing for starting jobs, increased snaps, targets, carries, you name it. Some situations may be more cut-and-dry than others, but it always helps to know, not just who wins the job, but the progress made by those who just fall short. Injuries are always abundant, so if you know who was competing for the job originally, you should have a much better idea as to who the next man up will be.

The following is a preliminary list of training camp battles you should be watching, but bookmark this page and continue to check back as we will be continuously updating this piece from now until the start of Week 1.

Green Bay Packers Running Backs and Their Third Wide Receiver

It’s never a terrible idea to pair a running back with one of the best quarterbacks in the league. That being said, whoever emerges as the top running back in Green Bay is due for some productivity. It would be nice if Aaron Jones didn’t violate the league’s substance abuse policy, thus being dealt a two-game suspension. Alas, here we are. The competition is fairly wide open as current ADP reports have Jamaal Williams of all people going the earliest in current mock drafts. Take it with a grain of salt because Williams, Jones, and Ty Montgomery are all going within a round or two of each other and plenty can happen. With how efficient Jones was in the running game last year (5.5 yards per carry), he could still emerge as the top option if he hasn’t dug too big of a hole for himself. This will be one of the biggest training camp battles to monitor considering how important the running back position is in fantasy and how potent the Green Bay offense can be when Aaron Rodgers is healthy.

Behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb there’s an opportunity for a third wide receiver to emerge in Green Bay. The obvious choice is Geronimo Allison who has familiarity with Aaron Rodgers . Allison’s lack of progress last year is likely because of Rodgers season ending injury, so there’s some optimism for 2018. But keep an eye on guys like J’Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown , and DeAngelo Yancey . They aren’t the most fun names to type by any means, but they’ll compete for snaps alongside Allison.

Update (8/18): It looks as if the Packers will enter the season with Jamaal Williams as the top running back option, but don't discount Ty Montgomery  and Aaron Jones just yet. There's room for all of them to get touches, even after Jones returns from his suspension. It sounds like the plan may be to give Williams a moderate workload through the first three months and unleash him in December. Take that with a grain of salt because it's only August and anything could happen between now and then.

Update (9/1): Initially this section was dedicated to covering the WR3 battle in Green Bay. But that has changed. Recently Green Bay has made every team know that Randall Cobb is available for trade. So if this were the case Davante Adams would be the clear number one guy for the Packers with Geronimo Allison possibly being bumped up to number two. Cobb doesn't have a great contract and he has an injury history. It's hard to gauge what kind of a trade market there is for a guy like that. Cobb could very well be a dark horse candidate to be cut.

Washington Redskins Running Backs

This battle is really interesting between Derrius Guice , Rob Kelley, and Samaje Perine . Last season the battle was predominantly between Kelley and Perine; both similar power runners. Then they went out and acquired Guice who fits the mold of the other two. It is quite possible they break training camp with only two of these guys, but the Redskins have a pretty good problem on their hands by having these three at once. Guice likely breaks camp as the top guy despite being a rookie. Perine didn’t exactly have an explosive rookie season and Kelley was hurt quite often and ended the season on IR. Washington still has a pretty talented offensive line that can provide for a strong running game. It just depends on who has the best training camp of the three.

Update (8/26): In a rather surprising twist the Washington Redskins acquired Adrian Peterson after losing Derrius Guice to injury for the year. Even more surprising was that after just a short period with the Redskins he ran very well with the first team offense. On 11 carries Friday night, Peterson totaled 56 rushing yards. Rob Kelley had just 19 rushing yards on eight carries. There's a lot of hype surrounding Peterson right now and the Redskins offensive line is pretty good. Don't be surprised to see his ADP climb as we enter the meat of fantasy draft season.

New England Patriots Wide Receivers and Running Backs

Here is another training camp battle currently up in the air due to a suspension. Julian Edelman , at age 32, is coming back from a torn ACL but will also miss the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. And with Danny Amendola now in Miami and Malcolm Mitchell on the trading block, the wide receiver position is wide open for the Patriots. When Edelman comes back there’s no doubt he’ll resume his role as one of Brady’s favorite targets. But currently Jordan Matthews and Chris Hogan are slated to be the top options in New England, but both went down with injuries during Sunday’s practice. Don’t worry, they appear to be minor. But given the departures and suspensions this offense will endure to start the year, Tom Brady will have to work his magic to improve the play of those around him.

The running back position is another battle that’s about as confusing as ever with the Patriots. They have never been known to rely truly on one guy they currently have a backfield with names like Rex Burkhead , Mike Gillislee , James White , Jeremy Hill , and Sony Michel who was a first-round pick for New England in this year’s draft. Taking a running back in the first round was definitely uncharacteristic of New England. The last running back they took in the first round was Lawrence Maroney and he turned out to be a bust. So while there is the general thought of “well they took him in the first round, they have to use him, right?” Not necessarily. Fumbles were a big issue for Michel in college and sure enough he had a fumble in Saturday’s practice. In PPR, Burkhead is probably the best option. Mike Gillislee will likely be a short yardage/goal line back and don’t sleep on Jeremy Hill who is just 25 years old and coming off an ankle injury, but he’s a very effective player when healthy and he could be looking to bounce back with New England to earn a bigger contract with another team after the 2018 season.

Update (8/26): Thursday night's game did little to shed light on the Patriots backfield save for the fact it looks like Mike Gillislee and Jeremy Hill are battling for a job. It looks like Gillislee got the better of the matchup as he at least scored a touchdown and recorded 35 rushing yards on ten carries. Hill rushed for 25 yards on nine carries. James White didn't record any rushing attempts, but he did bring in his two targets for 17 yards. Perhaps with injuries to Rex Burkhead and Sony Michel , New England wanted to play it safe and keep White's workload limited. 

Update (9/1): The Patriots have cut Mike Gillislee and will go with Rex Burkhead , James White , Sony Michel , and Jeremy Hill in the backfield.

Update (8/26): There are people that may want to hype up Cordarrelle Patterson 's ten targets from Friday night, but only two of them came from Tom Brady . In comparison, he targeted Philip Dorsett more than he did Patterson. Patterson could still carve out a nice role for himself and maybe New England surprises us all and uses him more exclusively once the season starts. For now, lets temper expectations.

Tennessee Titans Running Backs

The nice thing about this training camp battle is that it is a little more cut and dry. It basically boils down to Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis . Titans fans and fantasy players alike have been waiting for Henry to get a lion’s share of the workload and he probably will for what it’s worth, but Dion Lewis will get his share of touches. He’ll likely be more involved in the passing game than Henry, but expect Henry to improve heavily on his 176 carries last season. Tennessee still boasts an excellent offensive line so this could be a very solid running game that sees Henry break off 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career.

Update (8/26): Nothing too magnificent to report on this battle yet again. Henry received a modest workload against the Steelers on Saturday (five carries for 12 yards) and Dion Lewis brought in all three of his targets for 20 receiving yards. It still seems pretty clear Derrick Henry will get most of the carries with Lewis seeing more of a third down/pass catching role with this offense.

Rookies Quarterbacks vs. Veteran Quarterbacks

This section will be sort of all encompassing because there are quite a few rookie quarterbacks to touch on. So we’ll start with the number one overall pick: Baker Mayfield . Mayfield enters his first training camp (and first season of Hard Knocks coincidentally enough) with the Browns as the backup for now. TyRod Taylor could potentially emerge as the starter to begin the year, but make no mistake about it this is Mayfield’s job in the long run and a few losses to start the year should be enough to remove Taylor from the starting role and insert Mayfield. Hue Jackson is 1-31 in two years as the Browns head coach. If he wants to keep his job, he can’t be patient. He’ll need to have Taylor on a short leash because there are people who believe the Browns can make the playoffs this year.

Update (9/1): Mayfield has experienced his share of up's and down's so far in the preseason, but he still has a lot of potential. For now, TyRod Taylor will open the season as the starter.

Sam Darnold finds himself in a similar battle, but further down the depth chart for the Jets quarterback job. He has to compete against Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater . The Jets also have an offensive line that ranks among the worst in the league and this isn’t exactly a group you want protecting your first round investment, but beggars can’t be choosers. Darnold could finish the year as the starter and the Jets aren’t expected to have much success this year. It’s likely that McCown emerges with the starter’s job, but with Darnold being a first round investment the Jets shouldn’t take long to show their fans what they may have with the USC product.

Update (9/1): After the Jets traded Teddy Bridgewater earlier this week it looks like it will officially be Sam Darnold 's job as the starting quarterback for the Jets. With a spotty offensive line it'll be a mystery as to how well he can perform with suspect protection.

Josh Allen finds himself in possibly the most winnable training camp battle against A.J. McCarron and Nathan Peterman for the Bills quarterback job. Allen was taken seventh overall in this year’s draft behind the two previously mentioned quarterbacks and he has an absolute cannon for an arm. At times it’s almost too strong as accuracy was a big knock on him during the rookie combine. That being said if he does come away with the starting job don’t expect much from him. The problem is that the Bills offensive line is awful and that can’t be stressed enough. Cordy Glenn was traded to Cincinnati, Eric Wood retired due to a serious neck injury, and Richie Incognito was released after a bizarre incident at a gym in Miami where he was tossing around free weights. Josh Allen could win this job, and it’s entirely possible, but his fantasy upside is minimal.

Update (9/1): With A.J. McCarron being traded to the Oakland Raiders, the Buffalo Bills are now down to Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen at quarterback. Peterman is notorious for his historically awful debut last season where he was picked off five times in the first half of that game. But this preseason he's completed 33 of his 41 pass attempts for 431 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Josh Allen has completed 24 of 44 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns. The Bills have yet to announce who they'll start Week One.

Josh Rosen of the Cardinals finds himself in a less enviable situation to the prior three quarterbacks mentioned above. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Cardinals offensive line has a lot of questions, mostly regarding players returning from injury. But Rosen will probably start the season as the backup to Sam Bradford if Bradford’s knee is healthy. But if Arizona fails to string some wins together they may find themselves in a situation to start the rookie first round pick. But Bradford is currently locked into a one-year contract with an option for 2019, but it's unlikely they bring back Bradford since they invested the tenth overall pick in Rosen. Rosen could find playing time given Bradford’s lengthy injury history, but for now he probably starts the season as the backup.

Update (9/1): It'll likely be Sam Bradford getting the starting job to open the season. He played minimally in the third preseason game while David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald sat out entirely.

Lastly, Lamar Jackson has very little chance of unseating Joe Flacco from the starting quarterback job with the Ravens. It was a bit of a shocking move considering Flacco is under contract until 2022 with a potential out two seasons from now. The big issue with the Ravens offense last season was that they had no weapons for Flacco to pass to. This offseason the Ravens brought in Michael Crabtree , Willie Snead , and John Brown (more on them later) so they improved over last year. Still, the Ravens want to plan for the future by taking Jackson. But they can still make some noise and win with Flacco. After all they were an Andy Dalton miracle touchdown away from making the playoffs last year. For now, Flacco is still the quarterback and likely will be for the 2018 Baltimore Ravens.

Update (9/1): Lamar Jackson showed signs of promise throughout the preseason, especially after a rough start. However, Joe Flacco will be the starting quarterback for the Ravens on opening day.

Indianapolis Colts Running Back

With Frank Gore out of the picture for rainier pastures in Miami, the Colts enter training camp with Marlon Mack as their number one running back. They did draft rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in the fourth and fifth rounds of this year’s draft but unless a serious injury occurs to Mack he figures to be the top running option in this offense especially after the Colts drafted Quenton Nelson with their first round pick. Nelson could possibly step in and be a Pro Bow caliber player as a rookie so he should improve the running game significantly. The battle between Hines and Wilkins will be worth watching. Their progress will be very telling as to who will be the handcuff coming out of training camp.

Update (8/26): Nobody really seized the opportunity in the Colts preseason game against San Francisco. With Marlon Mack out, saw 14 carries but for only 28 yards, Christine Michael had eight carries for nine yards and scored a touchdown. Nyheim Hines had five carries for zero yards. Wilkins did redeem his night with two catches for 33 yards, but for the most part nobody made a mezmerizing case to take the starting running back job from Marlon Mack , assuming he's ready for the first week of the season.

Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receiver Opposite A.J. Green

There are quite a few names in contention to see who will be the opposite receiver to Green in this offense. Brandon LaFell , John Ross , Tyler Boyd , and Josh Malone are all in contention for this opportunity. LaFell is probably the frontrunner right now, but he’s definitely a “been there, done that” kind of player and the Bengals are going nowhere fast. It would be refreshing to see the Bengals do something new with a passing game and see what they have in John Ross and use Boyd as a slot receiver. LaFell turns 32 in November and is still a fairly effective player, but the Bengals are so bland and boring that it wouldn’t be surprising to see Marvin Lewis give LaFell most of the snaps although it should go to someone like Ross.

Update (8/27): To be honest, there isn't much clarity between who is winning the battle between John Ross and Tyler Boyd . And it may not matter. Brandon LaFell is no longer with the team and in Cincinnati's last preseason game against Buffalo both guys had an impressive showing. Ross brought in a 57-yard touchdown in the first quarter to finish with two catches on four targets for 66 yards and the touchdown. Boyd caught all four of his targets for 54 yards. Don't forget about the Tight End Tyler's for the Bengals as well. Tyler Kroft and Tyler Eifert both made a couple plays, but nothing spectacular. Bengals Tight Ends are notorious for racking up touchdowns and red zone targets. It's likely if he can stay healthy that Eifert would emerge as a late-round fantasy commodity.

Jacksonville Jaguars Wide Receivers

The Jaguars receivers will look very different from just two years ago with the departures of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns this past offseason. At first glance, Marqise Lee is probably the top receiving threat with Dede Westbrook , Keelan Cole , and Donte Moncrief following suit. Moncrief may still have some talent, but it’s clear his production was dependent on Andrew Luck ’s health while he was with the Colts. Blake Bortles is still a respectable quarterback that may be able to get some touchdowns out of him. It’ll be interesting to see what they do with Dede Westbrook . He missed nine games last season, but in the seven games he did play he averaged over seven targets per game, while Marqise Lee averaged just a hair under seven targets. But there’s a big opportunity for these guys and it’s not like this is entirely a “new” training camp battle. Hurns and Robinson both suffered injuries last season and accounted for only 57 targets. Marqise Lee should emerge as the top option while Westbrook, Cole, and Moncrief battle behind him. Don’t sleep on Keelan Cole either. He averaged 17.8 yards per catch last year, but only caught 42 of his 83 targets. Don’t blame Cole entirely for this. Bortles has a 59.1% career completion percentage.

Update (8/26): Well unfortunately we got some clarity on this situation, but it took a serious knee injury to Marqise Lee to open the door for Westbrook, Cole, Moncrief, and Chark. Don't sleep on Austin Seferian-Jenkins either. He was peppered with a couple targets with the first team. The loss of Lee likely means Westbrook could emerge as the number one guy. He and Moncrief got a few targets with the first team. There are still some questions heading into the season, but my best guess is somebody from this receiving group emerges off the waiver wire.

Cleveland Browns Running Backs

Duke Johnson has little-to-no competition for the dynamic pass-catching running back in Cleveland job. That’s his and his alone so he’s still a value in PPR leagues. In three seasons he has 241 targets and 188 catches in addition to 259 carries. So he is used occasionally in the running game, but not exclusively. Still, he’s a good flex option in PPR leagues. The battle for carries boils down to Nick Chubb and Carlos Hyde . It’s pretty wild to think that the 49ers let Hyde go after he posted over 1,200 all-purpose yards and eight total touchdowns. However, there were some concerns heading into last season as to how well he would fit Kyle Shanahan’s offensive scheme. And he did have a pretty solid year overall. Nick Chubb enters the offense as a second round pick from this year’s draft after he averaged 6.3 yards per carry last year at the University of Georgia where he also scored 15 touchdowns. This could legitimately be a split that could see even fewer carries for Duke Johnson with the Browns going maybe with a 60-40 split between Hyde and Chubb. It’s still too early to tell, but that would be the best estimation so far. The offensive line slightly under performed last season and they’ll be without superstar tackle Joe Thomas . But the competition between Hyde and Chubb needs to be watched closely.

Update (8/26): Thursday night's preseason game wasn't pretty by any stretch of the imagination. And while Nick Chubb had double the touches Carlos Hyde had, it appears the starting running back job is Hyde's to lose. On seven carries with the first-team offense, Hyde rushed for 45 yards including a reception out of the backfield albeit for negative yardage. Most of the yardage came from a 33-yard run, but the fact he was running more with the first-team than Chubb sheds a little light on who will get the starting job heading into the season.

Detroit Lions Running Back

The Lions are desperate to get back to a solid running game. It really seems like they haven’t had an effective ground attack game since the days of old with Barry Sanders. But it’s clear they’ve put a concentrated effort towards establishing the running game. If they can get a healthy year from Taylor Decker and rookie Frank Ragnow lives up to expectations, they could provide for a great run blocking offense. Detroit does have a variety of options at running back and it is similar to a crowded backfield like New England. That makes sense since Matt Patricia is taking over as head coach. LeGarrette Blount is a new face coming off winning three Super Bowls in the last four years with New England and Philadelphia. Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick are holdovers, and Kerryon Johnson is a rookie second-round pick that has a lot of promise. It’s not even a guarantee that Blount makes the team out of training camp, but he would presumably get the short yardage touches and Theo Riddick would likely remain as the third-down receiving back. The best guess is that Detroit commits to Johnson. Abdullah and Riddick have had their chances and the Lions seem to know what they have with those two. If they really want to make an impression on their fanbase, why not let Johnson run wild? Last season at Auburn he tallied over 1,500 all-purpose yards with 20 total touchdowns in just 12 games.

Update (8/26): So it appears that LeGarrette Blount 's job is safe considering he rushed for 45 yards on 11 carries with the first team offense. It's a very crowded backfield especially alongside Ameer Abdullah , Theo Riddick , and Kerryon Johnson . Most fantasy owners hoped Johnson would emerge as the guy heading into the season, but unfortunately this looks like a committee approach. Johnson will likely still be the one drafted highest based on his upside, but don't discount Blount because he should see the goal line/short yardage carries.

Baltimore Ravens Running Backs and Wide Receivers

Let's start with the backfield, shall we? It appears that Alex Collins is going to head into the season as the top running back in Baltimore. It makes sense considering he averaged 4.6 yards per carry on 212 touches last season. Kenneth Dixon did OK as a rookie in 2016, but he suffered a torn meniscus that forced him to miss the entire 2017 season. Javorius “Buck” Allen is still a presence in the backfield, but Dixon is probably second in line for the Ravens running back snaps, but the injury bug may be lingering as he left practice early last Thursday and he did not return.

The wide receiving group, as mentioned earlier, is completely different. Michael Crabtree comes in as the top option on this offense and you’ll likely see him go as the first Ravens receiver off the board in your draft. In three seasons with the Raiders he had at least eight touchdowns each year so he’ll likely be Flacco’s top end zone target this season. Baltimore also went out and acquired Willie Snead and John Brown . Brown may be the best value if he can stay healthy because he’s currently being drafted very late in most mock drafts that have been run and in a lot of drafts he’s not even being drafted at all. Fortunately for Brown, he’s developed some chemistry early on with Flacco that hopefully translates to the regular season.

Update (8/26): Alex Collins continues to get special treatment. After not playing in the second preseason game, he saw just one carry for seven yards in Saturday's game against the Dolphins. Kenneth Dixon did little to help build up his case. He had just two rushing yards on five carries. Collins is safe and secure as the top option in the Ravens backfield. There isn't much to develop on the passing game. Michael Crabtree still figures to be the top option and John Brown is a late-round sleeper. Keep an eye on the tight ends coming out of Baltimore. With the recent injury to Hayden Hurst this opens the door for Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams to make an effort to see more targets.

Seattle Seahawks Running Backs

This seems to be one of the easier training camp battles to project. It would be nice if the Seahawks would give C.J. Prosise a real shot at running back, or at least use him exclusively in the passing game. However, he’s appeared in just eleven games with Seattle over his two years with the organization. The team bid adieu to Thomas Rawls so that really just leaves Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny battling for carries. Carson looked pretty good in a limited sample size in 2017, but he broke his ankle in week four of last year. Still, he managed to average 4.2 yards per carry. Seattle also went out and drafted Penny in the first round of this year’s draft. It may have been a bit of a reach, but it’s actually a telling sign the team wants to get back to running the ball and Penny is a 220-pound bruiser. If Carson’s healthy, he’ll no doubt try to outwork Penny and they may start the year with split carries, but when a team invests a first round pick in a running back they usually want to feature them as much as possible to get a solid return on their investment.

Update (8/27): It's looking like Chris Carson will be the lead running back for Seattle as we head into week one of the 2018 season. Rashaad Penny 's finger injury and surprising 16-pound weight gain have given some fantasy players pause. Carson's actually looked solid behind an offensive line that looked pretty damn good over the past couple games. If you want a lead running back in the mid-rounds Carson is the guy to target. You may be able to handcuff Penny a couple rounds later.

Dallas Cowboys Wide Receivers

This unit is littered with names you can’t get too excited about: Allen Hurns , Terrance Williams , Cole Beasley , Michael Gallup , and Tavon Austin . Hurns, Gallup, and Williams will likely get some consideration. Hurns could potentially receive a majority of the targets, but that’s not a guarantee. You’d like to see them give Michael Gallup a great opportunity on the first-team offense considering they invested a third round pick in him. But don’t sleep on Tavon Austin either. Despite the fact he never lived up to the hype with the Rams, he’s been getting first team reps in training camp so far. With Dez Bryant out of the mix there’s a need to establish a somewhat respectable passing attack to keep opposing defenses from stacking eight men in the box to stop Ezekiel Elliott . Unfortunately for now, there’s little reason to get excited about Hurns and Williams after Dak Prescott is coming off a relatively bad year.

Update (8/27): Dallas is keeping the cards close to their chest and it's probably a good idea. The offensive line is a little hobbled. Travis Frederick is dealing with a very rare disease that is threatening his season, Zack Martin hyperextended his knee, and La'el Collins has a minor injury. So the Cowboys opted to shut Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott down. While the Dallas wide receiver battle may be wide open, Michael Gallup is making his way on to everybody's list of late-round targets. 

Denver Broncos Running Backs

The Denver backfield is one of the least crowded backfields in the league, but there’s competition nonetheless. With C.J. Anderson now on the Panthers there’s an opportunity for touches although these carries come with a pretty rough offensive line. In two seasons with Denver, Devontae Booker hasn’t really done much for the Broncos to have a ton of confidence in him so they went and drafted Royce Freeman in the third round of this year’s draft. Booker is heading into his third year in the league, at the age of 26. He’s still well in his prime, but how much better can he really be? Freeman is coming off a very successful senior season at Oregon where he rushed for over 1,400 yards and scored 16 touchdowns. He’s also pretty useful in the passing game, but for now you have to assume that Booker will inherit most of the carries based on familiarity with the organization. However, a new offensive coordinator is in town for the Broncos so it really could boil down to who has a better grip on the offense coming out of training camp.

Update (8/26): It's pretty clear this job belongs to Royce Freeman . He scored a touchdown on a 24-yard run against the Redskins Friday night. John Elway has nothing, but glowing things to say about him. He's easily the top guy in Denver's backfield and it shows as his ADP has him now going in the third-to-fourth round range.

Oakland Raiders Running Backs

Sticking with the AFC West, the Raiders are also experiencing some competition at running back. However, it may be an overblown competition at best. Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin headline the competition followed by Jalen Richard , DeAndre Washington , and Chris Warren . Lynch is entering the year at 32 years old, which is very old for a running back especially one with as much mileage as Lynch. However, he did okay last season gaining over 1,000 all-purpose yards and seven touchdowns, although he got off to a sluggish start. Doug Martin is surprisingly already 29 years old and he’s had two phenomenal seasons in the league, but also had four pretty terrible seasons. It’s not exactly a backfield worth gaining a ton of notoriety, but Lynch’s progress at his age is worth keeping an eye on.

Update (8/19): Hardly anything to report for Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin . However, Chris Warren did get a surprisingly large workload yesterday against the Rams. He had 18 carries for 110 yards and a touchdown while bringing in his lone target for seven receiving yards. Lynch and Martin didn't play, which is none too surprising, Jalen Richard did bring in three receptions for 35 yards, including one that went for 29 yards. Don't be too surprising if DeAndre Washington gets cut. The undersized running back doesn't exactly fit the mold for the big, physical style of offense Jon Gruden wants to establish via the running game.
