Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) had a full practice Thursday, Aug. 21, and he could play in his first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.
FANTASY TIP: Sanders should be good to go, but if he suffers another setback, he may be in trouble for Week 1. We'll keep you posted. For now, draft him as a low-end WR3.

Free-agent Cuban OF Rusney Castillo is expected to sign with the Boston Red Sox for a record-setting six-year, $72 million deal, according to a source.
FANTASY TIP: There's an outside chance he'll come up this year, but it's more likely that Castillo is someone to consider in deep fantasy leagues next year, especially those with five-outfielder requirement. Castillo has nice tools, notably his speed, and has hit with more authority since gaining weight, according to scouts. But he's not expected to have an impact like a Jose Abreu or Yasiel Puig.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could play with QB Brian Hoyer in a two-quarterback system later in the season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said a package for Manziel is on the table. Pettine said he didn't anticipate a platoon early in the season. Pettine also made it clear that Hoyer is on a week-to-week trial.
FANTASY TIP: Hoyer is a mid-to-low QB2, and it sounds like he must perform extremely well to hold off Manziel. Manziel is a mid-to-low QB2 with upside.

Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon is on track to join the White Sox's bullpen next month after a successful debut at Triple-A Charlotte earlier this week. He allowed a run on three hits and three walks while fanning three in three innings. "He's coming along quick and he's coming along real well," general manager Rick Hahn said. "Last night was a good outing."
