Best and worst wide receiver matchups for fantasy football Week 8

The Titans did everything they could to hand host Cleveland its first win of the season Sunday. Browns coach Hue Jackson did everything in his power to flush the opportunity.

It’s not all L’s for Washington. The resurgence of the career of the 33-year-old tight end has been a boost for the team since 2016 and it continued Monday with four receptions for 67 yards.

It seems like Davis manages to escape and run wild for a long play at least once a game for Washington, and he did it again against Philadelphia with a 31-yard pass play.

He averages nearly 20 yards per reception — a crazy number for a tight end — and has been a reliable target for Cousins at least a few times per game.

The since-deleted comment read: “JuJu is no where near better than me, fool. All they need to do is give me what I want and y’all can have JuJu and whoever else.”

Bryant later refined his remarks and commented on the same post: “JuJu is the future and got great talent and is going to be one of the best to play this game. I want him to get his. I just want mines, period, point-blank.”

Bryant has 18 catches this season for 234 yards and one touchdown. He was suspended all of 2016 for multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy.

Reggie Bush has spent the past 11 seasons on NFL rosters after being the No. 2 overall pick in the 2006 draft by New Orleans. This year, though, he hasn’t been on a team at all. Despite that, the running back said on Tuesday he would still like to play.

“I still want to play, but if it doesn’t happen this year, then I’m going to retire,” Bush told ESPN in a phone interview. “I’m not going to miss a whole year and then try to come back for another season at 33 years old, it doesn’t make sense.”

“I don’t want to go back in a situation just to go back and play. Obviously want to be in a situation where I can obviously be used the right way, be effective, all those different things.”

Ravens, Dolphins scuffle after late hit on Joe Flacco Jersey

The Baltimore Ravens will have to rely on Ryan Mallett to lead the way after a huge hit delivered to Joe Flacco sent him to the locker room. The late hit on a sliding quarterback knocked off Flacco’s helmet and drew an unnecessary roughness penalty, but the Ravens weren’t happy Authentic Mats Naslund Jersey with only a flag as punishment.

Publicly, Cousins has never shown signs he holds a grudge. He’s said all the right things, gushed about the city and the fans on social media. But privately, he has told several people he is open to reuniting with Kyle Shanahan, the former Washington offensive coordinator who is the 49ers’ head coach. Or maybe Sean McVay, another former offensive coordinator, who is now running the Rams.

Youth Teez Tabor Jersey Kaepernick certainly has the most name recognition of anyone on the list. The former 49ers quarterback’s national anthem protests last season started a movement that continues to make headlines around the league. And he’s been vocal in speaking out on social justice issues.

Yet the survey’s question about a national leader for Black Lives Matter is purely hypothetical; the group has announced no plans on that subject. As for Kaepernick, he remains focused on returning to the NFL. Earlier this month, he filed a collusion grievance claming the NFL has conspired to keep him from getting another job.

Nate Schmidt Mens Jersey But those who have spoken with him sense a dull panic, as if so much of what the NFL has built — what he has built since buying the Cowboys in 1989 — is eroding. Jones and his fellow owners had arrived in New York that day like heads of state, setting up shop at the Four Seasons and in their own apartments with a clear agenda: Stop Trump from attacking our business. Find a way to persuade players to stop kneeling. Get the focus back to football.

Shouts out to Nelson Agholor Jersey and Alshon Jeffery Jersey, who stopped their teammates that clearly thought they were taking a squad photo.

If I told you a Philadelphia team would be playing baseball in October, you’d guess it would be the Eagles. Because the Phillies are trash.

We might also get a good one out of the Panthers. They got penalized for this one last season. It would now be legal Womens Zaza Pachulia Jersey since the NFL took a chill pill on its Get Off My Lawn celebration rules.

The Panthers fell off of a cliff last season after going 15-1 and making the Super Bowl in 2015. This season, they’re third in total defense in the NFL, behind only the Broncos and Bengals.

He showed here on last Sunday in Denver’s 16-10 victory over the Raiders that he is healthy. He ran between the tackles 锟斤拷 not bouncing outside to avoid contact 锟斤拷 as if he knows his status and form are true. He looked quick. He looked fast. Denver rushed for 143 yards and Charles gained 33 on five carries.
Joe Blanton Youth Jersey
I think if you start to think about quarterbacks solely from the offense they ran in college, you are starting to box yourself in. I tend to think that those types of systems enhance a good player. If anything, it shows me the variety of what he can do and gives me more ideas of what I can do with him.
Eli Harold Youth Jersey
McCarthy, who turns 54 on Nov. 10, has been coaching in the NFL since 1993. He has been the Packers head coach since 2006. He won Super Bowl XLV in 2011.

The fact that Houston is tied with Kansas City for second in the league in points scored (177) is a firm testament of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson’s brilliant impact.

Consider that Houston in none of the past four seasons cracked the top 13 league wide in points scored. And that Houston ranked 28th last year and 31st in points scored four seasons ago.

NaVorro Bowman Jersey set to play for Raiders days after signing

NaVorro Bowman is expected to play for the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night against the Kansas City Chiefs, three days after being signed to a one-year, $3 million contract.
Authentic Mens Troy Stecher Jersey
The four-time All-Pro inside linebacker, who has endured devastating injuries to his left knee and left Achilles in 2014 and 2016, was released by the San Francisco 49ers on Friday.

He’s a veteran, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said of Bowman on Wednesday. I mean, he understands ball. We’ve not tried to install the entire playbook but specific game plan things and he’s had a good week. Even though it’s a short week, we feel real good he’ll play.

He is very instinctive and he’s a veteran guy that’s been there before. So he understands what it looks like to line up against a good football team.

The Raiders (2-4) are looking for a spark to help them end a four-game losing streak against the first-place Chiefs (5-1), who have won four straight games against Oakland.

When scheduled this preseason, this division rivalry game figured to be an exciting quarterback duel between Luck and Mariota. Instead, it now looks more like a war of attrition between two teams just trying to get healthy before their seasons slip away.
Game Mens Justin Hardy Jersey
The Broncos are No. 4 on ESPN’s power rankings list, and the Houston Texans are in the top 10. However, the Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans, and Cowboys fell out of the top 10.

NFL.com released its power rankings heading into Week 5, and the Lions and Eagles are in the top 5. Also, the Bills, Washington, and the Rams are all in the top 10.

The Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants, and the Indianapolis Colts are all at the bottom of each list. Those four teams are still looking to register a win this year.

Julius Peppers is only the 5th player to ever record 150 career sacks

Carolina Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers reached 150 career sacks after collecting a sack against the Philadelphia Eagles early in the first quarter on Thursday Night Football. Peppers, a nine-time Pro Bowler, joins Bruce Smith, Reggie White, Kevin Greene, and Chris Doleman as the only players in NFL history to record 150 sacks in their careers.

Then, Peppers signed with the Green Bay Packers in 2014 and spent three seasons there. He had to covert to linebacker because the Packers ran a 3-4 defense. That transition didn’t affect Peppers’ play — he totaled 25 sacks during his stint with the Packers.

This huge feat adds on to the list of Peppers’ many accomplishments. He’s a three-time first-team All-Pro and considered one of the best defensive players of all time. The only thing missing from Peppers’ long list of achievements is a Lombardi Trophy.

But even if he doesn’t win a Super Bowl, Peppers could be a first-ballot Hall of Famer once he retires. Until that day comes, he’ll continue to sack opposing quarterbacks.

As excited as I was, and I’m sure I wasn’t alone in that regard, to see Harrison finally get a helmet on game day again, no one knew what the plan was for him. In the games where he was active to start the season, Harrison either didn’t play, or barely played.

Not in Week 6 in Arrowhead Stadium vs. the undefeated Chiefs.

With the game on the line, Tomlin tapped his right arm, figuratively, not literally, and called for the closer.

No. 92 sauntered onto the field, and it only would have been better if someone would have played his theme music, as if he were a professional wrestler. Nonetheless, Harrison goes onto the field, terrorizes Alex Smith with a hurried pass and a sack, and the Chiefs lose their first game of the season.

CBS drew a Tony Romo Jersey cartoon and it’s delightful

During Thursday Night Football between the Eagles and Panthers, CBS showed a graphic called Tony’s Take for Tony Romo. It was an awkward and funny looking cartoon.

Kids Reggie White Jersey The Colts have managed to blow their two-touchdown lead. Leading 23-16 with 24 seconds left, they were a goal line stand away from the W. Instead, on fourth-and-goal, the Niners get a tight end open with a rub route and he just BARELY breaks the plane. Once again, we are saddled with overtime between two crap teams instead of sending them home with the tie they earned (or ending with a do-or-die two-point conversion, which would likely be more exciting, and certainly faster).
Authentic Womens T.J. Carrie Jersey
Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots: Though he wasn’t the most-started tight end in fantasy this week — his 95.0 percent rate trailed Travis Kelce’s 95.9 and Zach Ertz’s 95.6 — Gronkowski delivered a score that paced all tight ends during the 1 p.m. ET block and likely should for the week, 26.3 in PPR and 20.3 in non-PPR scoring. It was his best single-week performance since 2016 Week 6 (29.2 and 22.2), and only the second time in his past 27 games that he managed at least 20 in either format.

Watson has shown exceptional poise since he first took the field in regular season action. This play was no exception. He’s under pressure, but fires off a perfect deep ball.

Fuller pulls it in for the score.

The Chiefs took a 23-7 lead into the half. But the Texans didn’t stop fighting, despite having both J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus out with injuries.

Watson wasn’t done. He hit DeAndre Hopkins with a 34-yard touchdown pass and a 1-yard score at the very end of the game to narrow the Chiefs’ margin of victory to 42-34. He threw five touchdowns in the game, tying his rookie record from the week before.

Richard Sherman Jersey on wealth, privilege, social activism and Colin Kaepernick

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says NFL owners had a point to make and they made it by not signing free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but players’ right to engage on social issues should have nothing to do with their perceived wealth.

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green are headlining the offense, but they need to get their running game going post-bye with rookie Joe MIxon to better support their defense.

This week: at Steelers, where the physicality and intensity will not lack

Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon are most responsible for two close victories to get them off the mat. It’s been good to see Anthony Lynn’s team learn how to finish better.

Colin Kaepernick, who has not been able to find another job in the NFL since opting out of his 49ers contract earlier this year, has reportedly filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners.

Limited Mens Jakub Kindl Jersey The 29-year-old quarterback has hired attorney Mark Geragos to assist him. Geragos released the following statement Sunday night.

Arians on getting strong performance from the 32-year-old Peterson, 37-year-old Carson Palmer and 34-year-old Larry Fitzgerald in Sunday’s 38-33 win over the Buccaneers. Obviously a day for old guys. I know how to coach old guys.

Authentic Mens Marquise Goodwin Jersey That includes Kaepernick himself, who is in the process of donating $1 million to charitable causes while also hosting his Know Your Rights Camp for youth. The camp touts itself as focusing on raising awareness on higher education, self-empowerment and instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios.

Packers Ty Montgomery Jersey reportedly to play Sunday with no restrictions

Ty Montgomery is reportedly ready to play at full strength Sunday against the Vikings despite being listed on the Packers’ Friday injury report with the dreaded Questionable tag.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter? reported late Saturday that Montgomery, who missed last week’s game with multiple broken ribs, is expected to play today vs. Vikings and is not expected to be limited going in.
Elite Mens Victor Cruz Jersey
Youth Chuck Howley Jersey The third-year back, who injured his ribs in the Sept. 28 game against the Bears, practiced last week wearing a flak jacket and expects to wear it in Sunday’s game.

I played with one in high school, Montgomery said Thursday (via ESPN). It’s very normal. A flak jacket is pretty normal. It’s not in the way or anything.

Montgomery has 281 yards from scrimmage this season, with three touchdowns.

So the game plan for beating the Packers becomes easier: Go after their many weaknesses in pass coverage, build a lead, render them one-dimensional and tee off on Hundley. It’s not much of a deviation from the previous formula, but the making Rodgers beat us part didn’t sound like a winning proposition. With Hundley 鈥?and, really, almost any QB not named Rodgers 鈥?that suddenly turns into an excellent plan.

The Packers weren’t playing good complementary football before Rodgers went down. They simply relied on his right arm to bail them out. With Hundley, the defensive issues will significantly raise the degree of difficulty for the offense. Even if Hundley plays better than he did Sunday, anything less than Rodgers-like play won’t cut it.

Hundley can handle the starting job for a while, but he’s not built to save the Packers.

Sadly, only Rodgers can do that.

Tatum is one of a handful of rookies to sign a shoe deal with Nike this summer.

He shares an agent with Irving, in Jeffrey Wechsler of PRP, whose roster of clients is so tiny they’d need retired Shaquille O’Neal to lace up his high-tops in order to put together a game of three-on-three.

Tatum sheepishly did ask Wechsler about one other potential endorsement deal after signing his rookie pact. Tatum loves Imo’s Pizza from his native St. Louis. Tatum’s reps reached out and the pizza company was intrigued by a partnership. Now Tatum is one of only two spokesmen for the chain, the other being 2011 World Series MVP David Freese, another St. Louis native.

Dak Prescott is putting a lot on himself and coming through as well as possible given Ezekiel Elliott hasn’t been the same efficient runner and the defense has become an absolute sieve without Sean Lee. The failure to solidify the front and back ends of the defense is catching up to them like it didn’t last year, when they had as many losses as they do now.

What happened? Like with Dorsey, Gradkowski had no chance to stick with a new Browns regime and was released shortly after Eric Mangini’s hiring as head coach. Gradkowski retired in the 2017 offseason.

Touchdown, Panthers. Carolina scores on a 13-play, 75-yard drive that lasts almost seven minutes. After working down the field, Newton goes no-huddle and scrambles for 8 yards. Rivera challenges that Newton was down by contact before the end zone; the ruling stands. McCaffrey gets a 1-yard TD pass from Newton on the next play, and with 8:04 remaining the score is 28-23.

Touchdown, Eagles. Philly recovers from a holding call that brought up a second-and-25. Wentz passes to Hollins for 20 yards and a first down. Wentz goes deep to Jeffery, who gets Philadelphia another 37 yards. Then Wentz throws another touchdown pass, this time to Agholor for 24 yards. The Eagles increase their lead 28-16.

Kevin Hogan Jersey replaces DeShone Kizer Jersey as Browns’ starting QB

Kevin Hogan went into training camp as the No. 4 quarterback on the Browns’ depth chart. Five games into the season, he is Cleveland’s starter.

Coach Hue Jackson made the expected move official Wednesday, announcing that Hogan will get the start ahead of DeShone Kizer on Sunday against the Texans.

Multiple players have said they will not kneel going forward as to not test Jerry Jones’ new anthem policy, The Intercept reported.

Jones previously said that anyone who doesn’t stand for the national anthem will be benched and that it’s in the best interests of the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL and the players to respect the American flag.

Game Youth Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey In a players and coaches meeting Wednesday, the Cowboys decided the actions they took in Week 3 were appropriate. Players kneeled before the anthem with arms linked then stood while The Star-Spangled Banner was played.

It’s mind-boggling what a quarterback graveyard Cleveland has been, with the Johnny Manziel nightmare (first round in 2014) being the biggest mistake. Kizer still could become a decent player, as it’s too early to give up on a rookie, especially one with a shaky supporting cast. But the early returns are not good.

Occasionally a team can find a Russell Wilson in the third round, a Dak Prescott in the fourth or a Tom Brady in the sixth. These guys are the exceptions. It’s better for a team to cast its lot with the top-rated quarterback when given the chance, and the Browns whiffed not once, not twice but three times in two years.
