What I learned this preseason
Updated: September 4, 2012, 3:47 PM ETBy Eric Karabell
On the eve of another NFL regular season, it's time to officially wrap up the preseason and share what was learned. In general, fantasy owners shouldn't be looking closely -- or at all -- in the direction of actual statistics because coaches have different agendas in August, and winning games certainly isn't the most important thing. For those wondering, Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins led the league in preseason passing yards, Arizona Cardinals No. 4 tailback William Powell led everyone in rushing yards and Travaris Cadet -- he's a New Orleans Saints running back -- was tops in receiving yards. No need to adjust your draft rankings here.
To see which players moved up or down in Eric's season rankings following the preseason, you must be an ESPN Insider.
