Report: Raiders going with Derek Carr over Matt Schaub
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6:14 pm ET) Raiders players have been told the team will start rookie Derek Carr over veteran Matt Schaub at quarterback, reports Fox Sports. Carr threw three touchdown passes in last Thursday's preseason finale while Schaub has battled elbow problems.

Oakland opens the season Sunday at the Jets.


Emmanuel Sanders a strong flex option Week 1
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6:09 pm ET) Assuming Wes Welker returns from his concussion and plays Week 1, teammate Emmanuel Sanders still will be a strong flex option. Colts-Broncos is a guaranteed shootout -- the over/under is a whopping 55, highest on the board -- and Peyton Manning can support three productive Fantasy receivers with ease.

Plus, Manning has taken a liking to Sanders. When Sanders debuted in the third preseason game, the duo hooked up for 67- and 29-yard touchdowns in the first half.

"You just throw it as far as you can, and it's hard to outthrow that guy," Manning told the team's website.

Sanders finished with five catches for 128 yards on eight first-half targets, doing most of that before Welker got concussed. Sanders was not 100 percent for that game; he had just come back from a quad injury.

Now Sanders, who started building chemistry with Manning at informal Duke University workouts, "looks ready for the big stage," the website said.

"Peyton puts it on the money," Sanders said. "He takes pride in throwing the perfect football. He takes pride in being perfect all around, in general. He makes my job easy."

Manning is going to help Sanders reach a level he has not hit before, starting Sunday night.

Redskins complete practice squad

Jets tweak roster

(5:32 pm ET) The Jets signed free agent cornerback Phillip Adams and claimed receiver Walt Powell off waivers from the Cardinals. New York also waived receiver Quincy Enunwa, who likely will be placed on the practice squad.

Tough matchup not a concern for Julius Thomas
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:21 pm ET) Broncos tight end Julius Thomas opens the season with a difficult matchup: Indianapolis allowed the fewest Fantasy points to tight ends (5.33 per game) last year.

It's not a concern for Thomas, one of three tight ends to catch a touchdown against the Colts in 2013. In Week 7 at Indy, Thomas caught five of six targets for 41 yards and the score.

That was one of 12 touchdowns Thomas scored in his breakout season. The 26-year-old showed he's not satisfied by taking a diligent offseason approach, according to the Denver Post.

"He's going to be a very special player," former Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen said. "It was fun to watch him grow up last season. In this offseason, he really impressed me with his attitude and work ethic and how hungry he was."

Thomas drew 17 red-zone targets last year. With Eric Decker's departure, the 6-5, 250-pound Thomas should see a few more this season. He's a top-3 play Sunday night.


Allen Hurns secures No. 3 spot
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:51 pm ET) Jaguars undrafted rookie Allen Hurns, who led the team with 14 preseason catches for 232 yards, enters the season as the No. 3 wideout, reports ESPN.com. Veteran Cecil Shorts and rookie Marqise Lee are the projected starters.

Hurns took advantage of extra reps due to injuries and "worked his way into the top three spots," the report said.


Cowboys make roster moves

(4:36 pm ET) The Cowboys waived defensive back Jemea Thomas and signed linebacker Korey Toomer.

Rams claim Case Keenum

(4:31 pm ET) The Rams claimed quarterback Case Keenum off waivers from the Texans, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.


Demaryius Thomas needs better performance vs. Vontae Davis
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) Broncos No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas dominated most cornerbacks last year. That was not the case with Vontae Davis.

The Colts' top corner held up well Week 7 against the 6-3, 229-pound Thomas. While Thomas caught four passes for 82 yards and a touchdown, his 31-yard score came one play after Davis exited briefly with an injury. Thomas ended up catching fewer than half his nine targets.

Davis graded out as Indy's top defensive player that night. In addition to making five tackles, he allowed three completions out of eight throws to his coverage area for 12 yards. Whatever damage Thomas did, he didn't do it against Davis. Thomas figures to see plenty of Davis (5-11, 207 pounds) when Denver hosts Indy in Week 1.

Thomas should get redemption Sunday night. He usually comes out with a bang -- he has five touchdown catches in four season openers -- and the Broncos will scheme to free him up. Consider him a top-5 play as usual, despite the tough individual matchup.
