Deshaun Watson to hear final decision on suspension next week

Fantastic Impact: Sue Robinson recently handed Watson a six-game suspension over the sexual assault case that has lasted since 2021, once the decision was handed down, however, the NFL quickly turned to appeal the ruling and is looking to increase suspension. Roger Goodell was in charge of deciding who would take the final decision on the Watson case, as any decision from now on is final. The commissioner named Peter C. Harvey in charge as someone with prior experience in sexual assault cases, Harvey is a former NJ attorney general. This result so far is not surprising as the league originally recommended to Robinson that Watson be suspended for at least 1 year, which means fantasy managers should prepare to be without a QB for the entire 2022 season, for right now it can be held in dynasty leagues, but it should probably be avoided in all redraft leagues. While Watson is out, Jacoby Brissett looks set to lead the attack, which will increase his fantasy value, but it will also reduce the fantasy prospects of the entire offense to at least a lesser extent.

Zamir White impresses on Raiders debut

Zamir White had 11 carries and three receptions for 75 total yards in the preseason opener.

Fantastic Impact: The fourth-round rookie pick saw most of the action among the Las Vegas RBs, but that’s no surprise for the preseason opener. More importantly, he looked the part and could earn a regular role if he continues to produce. He’s firmly behind Josh Jacobs and the Kenyan Drake, so he’s a late round flyer or handcuff at best.

Mitch Trubisky is the Steelers’ 1st string QB on their depth chart

Fantastic Impact: Trubisky was signed by Pittsburgh this offseason after replacing Josh Allen at Buffalo a season ago. The UNC 6th-year player will have the chance to revitalize a career that opened with his No. 2 pick in 2017. He will most likely rely heavily on his guns as the Steelers do what they can to help him succeed. Trubisky doesn’t offer too many upsides considering he’ll be replaced by first-round pick Kenny Pickett at some point. In the Superflex leagues, he might be a deep piece but probably doesn’t belong on your fantasy roster otherwise.
