Don't kid yourself, Hall of Fame Game had plenty of storylines
There goes Lamar Miller's value. #fantasyoverreactions — Adam Rank (@adamrank) August 5, 2013
Lamar Miller might go on to be a star running back. But sense about him with some in organization is still uncertainty. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 5, 2013
Not a good start for Lamar Miller. And Lance Dunbar is the clear handcuff right now for DeMarco Murray. — Michael Fabiano (@Michael_Fabiano) August 5, 2013
Lamar Miller's fantasy draft stock coming back to bull market status. — Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) August 5, 2013
Just not a good mesh point by Lamar Miller. Could be jitters, but not how he wanted to start. #Dolphins — Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) August 5, 2013
Lamar Miller may want to look at the ball, maybe a quick peak, something. — FantasyGuru.com (@Fantasy_Guru) August 5, 2013Then, Miller would rip off two runs for a combined 21 yards. He wasn’t a factor in the passing game, but showed some burst with the ball in his hands. His upside might be too much to pass on if you're looking for a solid fantasy running back. Who will play win the slot WR role for the Cowboys? Although rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams will be sidelined because he sustained a concussion during Friday’s practice, he looks to be the frontrunner to play in the slot for Dallas. Will any of the other receivers take advantage of the opportunity? Dwayne Harris, Cole Beasley, Anthony Armstrong and Danny Coale look to stand out. UPDATE: The Cowboys wide receivers didn't have the greatest night. Rookie wide receiver Tim Benford had the most receptions (3) and yards (25) as the whole group only hauled in six balls all evening. This will be a battle to watch during the preseason. How are the rookies looking? Cowboys center Travis Frederick: Dallas’ first-round pick won’t have the easiest night as he looks to get a lot of play at center and guard. Cowboys want to get Frederick up to speed as soon as possible as they are very thin on the interior of their offensive line. During training camp, Frederick has reportedly played well. Let’s see how he handles the game speed. UPDATE: Frederick has reportedly blown coaches away during training camp and did much of the same in his first preseason game. The first-round pick showed off his versatility as he played both center and guard, paving lanes for Phillip Tanner. Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan: Miami traded up to select Jordan No. 3 overall in April, now they want the 6-foot-6, 260-pound defensive end to make an instant impact. Jordan has reportedly played well in training camp and looks to put it on tape at the Hall of Fame Game. UPDATE: Jordan displayed his length and acceleration by lining up on the field for nearly every third down. Jordan got a hit on Cowboys quarterback Nick Stephens with a scary quick move on his former college teammate tackle Darrion Weems in the second quarter. It’s apparent that Miami wants to get Jordan his reps as he was seen on the field in the fourth quarter. Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar: The San Diego State product reportedly hasn’t shown much during his short time with the team. While second-year tight end James Hanna was nursing a hamstring strain, Escobar struggled to pull away for the No. 2 tight end position. UPDATE: Escobar only caught one pass for three yards, but showed his true value in run blocking. He helped create some holes for the Cowboys running backs. Big-name starters were sidelined Tony Romo was out. Dez Bryant didn’t participate in some practice last week because of a sore hip, so he didn't suit up. Murray and Ware were sidelined to prevent any potential injuries. Mike Wallace has a minor groin strain, so he didn't participate. Wide receiver Brian Hartline and defensive tackles Jared Odrick and Randy Starks each have been battling leg injuries and were made unavailable.
