Cleveland Browns 53-Man Roster Projection (Final Version)

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 11:26
It is time for my final 53-man roster projection for the Cleveland Browns. General Manager John Dorsey will have to trim the roster from 86 players to 53 players by 4:00 PM ET on Saturday Authentic Christian Kirksey Jersey , September 1st. This edition is based on the weeks of training camp reports, performances from the four preseason games, and my general instincts..dbn {background: #fff;width: 600px;padding: 2px;font-size: 12px;color: #FFFFFF;}tr:first-child td {font-weight: bold;TEXT-ALIGN: center; BACKGROUND: #DF6108; COLOR: white; VERTICAL-ALIGN: bottom;}td {border: 1px solid #000;padding-left: 2px;}tr:nth-child(even) {background: #330000;color: white;}tr:nth-child(even) td {color: white;}tr:nth-child(odd) {background: #FFDB9F;color: black;}tr td:first-child {text-align:center;font-weight:bold;}The following players would not count toward the 53-man roster:Injured Reserve: WR Ricardo Louis, CB Howard WilsonGeneral Roster Projection NotesSince the first edition of my list, I removed the following four players from my 53-man roster projection:WR Corey ColemanDL Trenton ThompsonLB Mychal KendricksS Simeon ThomasSince the second edition of my list, I added the following four players to my 53-man roster projection:WR Rashard HigginsWR Damion RatleyDL Nate OrchardLB Justin CurrieI will explain each of the roster decisions in the positional bullet points below.Quarterback: As much as I like Brogan Roback for being funny, the team doesnt need four quarterbacks, even on the practice squad.Running Back: It was a solid final preseason game for Matthew Dayes, but reps will already be hard to divide between the top three backs.Wide Receiver: One of the polarizing decisions I had to make was whether to keep Jeff Janis or not. He has been hurt or done nothing all preseason, but I have to keep telling myself that Cleveland signed him for a niche reason (gunner), and he will still likely be counted on to fulfill that. Whether rookie Damion Ratley makes the roster is up for debate too I squeeze him on over TE Devon Cajuste. Rashard Higgins was on my cut list before camp, but hes definitely earned a roster spot with a great camp. What a difference from a year ago.Tight End: People have wondered whether Seth DeValves roster spot is in jeopardy. I just dont see how the team could cut an expected contributor because he was hurt during camp. DeValve has good hands and can stretch the field better than Cajuste can. I was pulling for Cajuste due to his Hard Knocks story, but that drop in the final preseason game was costly.Offensive Line: People are intrigued by what Desmond Harrison can offer as a backup tackle Youth Chris Hubbard Jersey , but I dont think hes ready for a 53-man roster spot. The practice squad is the right spot for him to develop. I think the team would trade Shon Coleman if there was an interest in him, but dont think they are deep enough at tackle to just outright cut him. Greg Robinson had a decent preseason if the club wants to keep him as insurance.Defensive Line: The defensive line position is all over the place due to Trevon Coleys health. I dont think veteran Chris Smith will be cut, but he hasnt been seeing early-game reps. Rookie third-rounder Chad Thomas has had an uneventful camp, but shouldnt be at risk of being cut. I said Carl Nassib vs. Nate Orchard was a battle I felt would be a thing early in camp, and Hard Knocks has played that out too. I was sticking with Nassib over Orchard, but then Orchard had an awesome pick six in the final preseason game. Ugh. As awesome as that one play is, I just dont know if the staff will feel he is productive enough against starting-level talent. I found a last-second spot for him by taking rookie S Simeon Thomas off the main roster.Linebacker: The sudden departure of Mychal Kendricks definitely threw a wrench in the once-fruitful linebacker depth, and Genard Averys injury hurts matters too. James Burgess roster spot should be locked in more, but now I have Justin Currie making the final roster too (but he will probably be gone after waiver moves are made).Cornerback: Cleveland stockpiled on cornerbacks this offseason, and Ive decided to keep all of them. T.J. Carrie and E.J. Gaines were supposed to battle it out for the other starting corner job, but faded from competition quickly. Still, I think Gregg Williams hated the lack of depth at the position last year and will want that whole room of guys to work with. Safety: The safety room is a bit thin after the first three, so Im shifting CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun over there to fill out a number. I also think we could see Jabrill Peppers and Derrick Kindred on the field a lot together http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authe...mitchell-jersey , helping alleviate some of the number issues at linebacker at times.Special Teams: The kicker competition ended early, with Ross Martin being cut before the final preseason game (but I was keeping Zane Gonzalez anyway). I dont think Justin Vogel will unseat veteran Britton Colquitt.The single asterisks on the cut side represent my projected practice squad, which includes RB Matthew Dayes, WR Derrick Willies, OT Desmond Harrison, DL Daniel Ekuale, DL Zaycoven Henderson, LB B.J. Bello, LB Jermaine Grace, S Simeon Thomas, CB Jeremiah McKinnon, CB Denzel Rice, and DB Tigie Sankoh.Note: I reserve the right to tweak my 53-man projection by noon on Friday. Final roster cuts are due Saturday by 4 PM ET.Feel free to share your roster projections here Genard Avery Jersey , or some changes you would make to mine.Browns WR Antonio Callaway cited for marijuana possession lol.Hard Knocks is set to debut this week, and although it might not make this episode, they are going to have a whole heck of a lot of material in future episodes regarding the Cleveland Browns wide receiver position. After Corey Coleman was traded on Sunday, that meant rookie Antonio Callaway was temporarily promoted to the starting lineup. And then...this story came out, per Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland:Grossis report says the amount of marijuana found was small enough to be regarded as a minor misdemeanor under Ohio law, and he is due in court Thursday morning at 9:30 AM, which is supposed to be when the Browns play their first preseason game in New York. Callaway was practicing on Tuesday at training camp, and Hue Jackson indicated the team didnt even know about the matter. The team released this brief statement:Given Callaways troubled past, this is not the best of starts to his NFL career, and the timing couldnt be worse for Cleveland with Coleman gone and Josh Gordon still missing in action.UPDATE: The excuse that Callaway is using? His car was recently shipped from Florida, others had driven it, and he didnt know it was there. Wholesale NFL Jerseys

The Browns were just a kick away.Well

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 11:16
Myles Garrett Jersey Elite , maybe a few kicks, not to mention a defensive penalty that revived a New Orleans touchdown drive, as well as an interception that set up another Saints score in the waning minutes.Even with all those critical, untimely mistakes, Cleveland could have forced overtime if Zane Gonzalez had managed to compartmentalize an earlier missed field goal 鈥?and two missed extra points 鈥?when he lined up for a 52-yard try in the final seconds.Gonzalez pushed it wide, and the Browns fell 21-18 in New Orleans to extend their winless streak to 19 games.Yet the performance also demonstrated how close Cleveland is to breaking back into the win column."Our players, as I told them afterward, 'There is a good team in that (locker) room,'" Browns coach Hue Jackson said. "There is no doubt in my mind about that."We've just got to make sure we are doing the right things all of the time to give us a chance."The Browns head into Week 3 with one loss and one tie, but with reasons for optimism. They are just a few plays away from being 2-0. In Week 1, they set up for a winning field goal in overtime against Pittsburgh , only to have it blocked.The Saints (1-1), meanwhile, are evidently unsatisfied with how their season has begun. Their defense struggled in a 48-40 Week 1 loss to Tampa Bay. In Week 2, the offense managed only a field goal through three quarters and change against Cleveland before rallying for 18 points inside the final nine minutes. If not for safety Marcus Williams' interception of Tyrod Taylor with just less than five minutes to go, the Saints might have become the first team to lose to the Browns since Dec. 24, 2016."I'm encouraged we won, but let's not kid ourselves," Saints coach Sean Payton said. "We have a lot to do to improve."Some story lines emerging from New Orleans' narrow triumph over Cleveland:WILLIAMS' WAYGregg Williams, a the Saints defensive coordinator from 2009-11, was caught on the HBO series Hard Knocks boasting that he turned down numerous jobs to take over as defensive coordinator in Cleveland. Now everyone can see why.Drew Brees and the Saints had their hands full with a Browns defense that forced two turnovers 鈥?fumbled by receivers Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. 鈥?and came up with three drive-stalling sacks. Tackle Larry Ogunjobi sacked Brees twice, blitzing cornerback T.J. Carrie got to Brees on another third down, and Ogunjobi would have had another in the fourth quarter if not for Derrick Kindred's illegal contact penalty."He did a good job," Payton said of Williams. "They always give you challenging looks. ... They have some good young players that played well."ONE-TWO PUNCHThrough Week 2, it's apparent that the Saints are relying heavily on Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara to carry the load.Thomas had 12 catches for 89 yards and both Saints touchdowns, giving him 28 catches for 269 yards and three TDs through two games."With a player of my caliber and the guy behind center and the offensive line and all the tools around me, I'm going to catch a lot of footballs. I'm going to get open. I've been doing that my whole life," Thomas said. "So now what can I do to add value to this team and take the next step?"Kamara had 99 yards from scrimmage, including 53 receiving on six catches to go with his successful run on a 2-point conversion. Kamara now has 240 yards from scrimmage and three TDs.BIG-PLAY CALLOWAYA day after the Browns announced they were formally giving up on deep-threat receiver Josh Gordon, rookie Antonio Calloway offered evidence he could grow into a similar type of play maker, racing past the Saints' secondary for a 47-yard touchdown catch from Taylor on a fourth-and-5 play with 1:16 to go. It could have been a go-ahead score, but Gonzalez hooked the extra point wide left."Those are plays we truly believe he can make," Jackson said.HILL COUNTRYPerhaps third-string QB is the wrong title for New Orleans' Taysom Hill. He became a regular on special teams late last season on kick coverage. Against Cleveland, he debuted as kickoff returner 鈥?and there's every reason to believe he'll get another shot. After Cleveland's first three kickoffs went for touchbacks http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/m...-garrett-jersey , Hill decided to return the fourth from 7 yards deep in the end zone. He burst through a seam and sprinted out of the Saints 40 before being tripped up."It was a good return," Payton said. "He's explosive."Offense shines, winning now, and observations from Browns camp, Day 5 BEREA It was an offensive day at Cleveland Browns training camp on Monday.Before things got started, Tyrod Taylor said the Browns need to win now, and his offense came out with some urgency ready to prove its up to that tall task.Throughout the practice it didnt matter whether it was the first, second, or third team units on the field, the Browns offense was fired up and executing at a high level.Duke Johnson, Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb and Matt Dayes sparked the big day. They were all fantastic, breaking off long runs seemingly at will. Chubb was as impressive as youd expect from a second-round draft pick and former star college running back. After he got moving, he didnt stop. Coaches typically preach to play until the whistle, but it didnt feel like Chubb ever wanted to stop.Chubb also had the biggest wow moment of the day, taking a counter pitch to the left sideline then hitting a video game button juke move to break him free for a huge gain.Itd be insulting to leave out the receivers, as Corey Coleman and Antonio Callaway both had standout practices. Rookie Derrick Willies also had a good showing. Willies, the 64 former Red Raider has an intriguing combination of size and speed. He ran almost exclusively with the second-team offense, led by Baker Mayfield, with fellow rookie Damion Ratley lined up opposite him.Hue Jackson let his team go a little early on Monday, with Tuesday being a CBA-mandated off-day. The team will return to Berea on Wednesday as they continue to prepare for their preseason opener against the New York Giants on Aug. 8.Observations from Monday, July 30 practice:1.Tight end David Njoku continued to drop some passes, one ending in an interception by safety Damarious Randall in 11-on-11s. Tyrod Taylors pass sailed a little behind him, and was high, but it did hit his hands. In early goal-line offense simulations Njoku had a spectacular leaping catch in traffic, scoring a touchdown and then delivering an equally impressive jump-and-spike celebration. Njoku has flashed star-level talent at the tight end position, but consistency concerns will continue to be the story following him until theyre not.2.Maybe some people were writing Corey Coleman off a little too soon. Unable to stay healthy for his first two seasons, Coleman has entered Browns training in what Todd Haley described as a make or break season. After struggling early on in camp, Coleman has strung together two impressive practices in a row. Coleman had several impressive grabs on Monday, including one from Taylor along the sideline that garnered a huge pop from fans and teammates. Taylor said he expects Coleman to continue catching his stride and building momentum the further the team progresses into camp.3.Tyrod Taylor received all first-team quarterback snaps again, and no change is expected there. As such, he had a lot more opportunities for errors, and he did have some on Monday. Other than the slight miss to Njoku on the interception by Randall, Taylor missed Jarvis Landry in the goal-line simulation drill Authentic ...

I might be a little paranoid. In fact

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 11:05
Jonathan Jones Jersey Salute to Service , I know I am.But considering the awful luck the Patriots have had with injuries over the last couple of years, I feel like its justified. Weve seen a handful of injuries to Rob Gronkowski throughout this career, and no Patriots injury in recent years was more jaw-dropping than Julian Edelmans torn ACL in training camp of last season. The only one even comparable is Tom Bradys torn ACL in the 2008 season opener, which amazingly was 10 freakin years ago.Anyway, next up on the injury list is rookie running back Sony Michel, who has really come to life in the last few games after a somewhat slow start. In the last couple of games, Michel has added a very lively spark to this offense. Hes not the main reason the Patriots have scored at least 38 points in four straight games, but he certainly hasnt been holding them back.Last Sunday night against Kansas City, the rookie rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns. The week before that, against the Colts, Michel racked up 98 yards on the ground with a touchdown Ja'Whaun Bentley Jersey , AND even caught a touchdown pass. And then the week before that, when the formerly first place Miami Dolphins were in town, Michel ran for 112 yards and a touchdown.The kid has been absolutely on fire lately. Im not saying hes going to be the next Marshawn Lynch, but he was a superstar at the University of Georgia and now hes got very, very, very good NFL running back written all over him. It was a scary moment on Sunday afternoon in Chicago, when Michel got wrapped up and taken to the ground in ugly fashion. Initially it looked like he injured his ankle, but the news quickly came that it was a knee injury, and then I started having flashbacks to Gronkowski in 2013 and Brady in 2008. Knee injuries are absolutely brutal.More news later came that Michels injury is not considered to be serious, and hes essentially on a week-to-week basis right now. Thats great news, no doubt. But still Authentic Isaiah Wynn Jersey , its hard not to worry. The Patriots might be really good at winning games which I guess is the most important thing but they have the absolute worst luck with injuries. If you want my honest opinion, I think its nothing short of a miracle that Brady has only been injured once in his 19-year career.Hopefully, Michels knee will heal right up and hell be back on the field in no time. But the Patriots injury paranoia inside of me, for some reason, is telling me to brace for the after further examination, Sony Michel suffered much more severe damage to his knee than it was initially believed, and he will be out for the rest of the season announcement. Nah, dont listen to me. Sony will be just fine.I hope. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Latest on Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon stepping away from football (all times local):2:55 p.m.The NFL says that Patriots receiver Josh Gordon has been returned to the reserve/commissioner suspended list indefinitely for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement under the leagues substance abuse policy.He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. He was reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in 2017 and at the time revealed in an interview with GQ magazine that he drank or used marijuana before games.Gordon said earlier Thursday that he was stepping away from football to focus on his mental health, but vowed to work his way back into the sport.

2014 at Gillette Stadium.

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 10:56
Oct. 26 Mike Gillislee Jersey Salute to Service , That was when and where the New England Patriots and Chicago Bears last met for a game of win-loss consequence.And if that 1 p.m. ET kickoff doesnt seem so long ago, well, revisiting some notes from what would unfold as a 51-23 rout might soon make you feel old.Like the fact Marc Trestman, now on the Toronto Argonauts sideline, was then Chicagos head coach and Jay Cutler, currently not really looking to do a lot of work, was the Bears starting quarterback. Or the fact the Patriots have since punched tickets to three Super Bowls.Feel four years older yet?Here are some other trivial points of reference from that game ahead of this Sundays matchup at Soldier Field.Handful of Bears remainFour Bears players who logged snaps against the Patriots back in 2014 remain on the roster in 2018.That nucleus for general manager Ryan Pace and first-year head coach Matt Nagy includes guard Kyle Long, cornerbacks Kyle Fuller and Sherrick McManis, and punter Pat ODonnell.Among the inactives back then was a fifth holdover, offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr., a rookie seventh-round pick out of Boise State who has since started 50 games for Chicago.Double-digit Patriots still are onesIn contrast, 13 Patriots players who logged snaps the last time out against the Bears remain in the fold today.On offense, Tom Brady, James White, James Develin James Develin Jersey , Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and Marcus Cannon checked in. On defense, so did Donta Hightower, Devin McCourty, Patrick Chung and Duron Harmon. And in the kicking game, the same went for Stephen Gostkowski, Ryan Allen and Matthew Slater.Safety and core special-teamer Nate Ebner was inactive due to a broken thumb.Future and past Patriots acquisitionsThe 2014 Bears featured four players would go on to make more frequent stops in Foxborough.Tight end Martellus Bennett, who caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown versus New England that afternoon, was acquired via trade ahead of 2016. Linebacker Shea McClellin and defensive back Brock Vereen would later sign to the 53-man roster and practice squad, respectively. And linebacker Jon Bostic, an inactive for that Week 8 matchup, was dealt to the Patriots in the fall of 2015.But there were also a pair of ex-Patriots already on the field for the Bears in defensive end Trevor Scott and kicker Robbie Gould.Gray ground attackA reserve-futures signing carried the load against Chicago.Jonas Gray didnt know hed soon carry the football 37 times for 201 yards and four touchdowns en route to a spot on the cover of Sports Illustrated. No one knew LeGarrette Blount would soon be reacquired after a short stint with the Pittsburgh Steelers, either.But versus the Bears, in what marked just the second regular-season game of Grays NFL career, the Notre Dame product rushed for 86 yards on 17 carries.New England trio caught a perfect gameThere would be no incompletions in the vicinity of Gronkowski Authentic LaAdrian Waddle Jersey , fellow tight end Tim Wright or wide receiver Brandon LaFell against the Bears. There would, however, be 27 passes completed.Gronkowski, Wright and LaFell combined 334 yards and five touchdowns while Brady finished 30-of-35 passing for 354 yards.A certain second-round QB out of Eastern Illinois also stepped in to complete three passes of his own.Revis, Moore generated turnoversCutler would be responsible for both of the games turnovers.The Bears QB threw an interception to Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis to end the half, and fumbled on a strip-sack split between rookie defensive end Zach Moore and Hightower shortly before that, which resulted in a Rob Ninkovich touchdown return.First-rounder Dominique Easley and former Tennessee Titan Akeem Ayers would also get to Cutler for solo sacks.Maybe the best back in the leagueOne of the best backs in the league. Maybe the best back in the league, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said of Bears two-time Pro Bowler Matt Forte leading up to the 2014 encounter. Certainly been an impressive guy to watch, both in the passing game and in the running game.Forte continued to be an impressive guy for Belichick to watch in both phases that Sunday.The veteran running back tallied 168 yards from scrimmage and a TD on 25 touches versus New Englands defense. Hed finish the campaign with 218 carries and 102 catches.Pyrrhic sack celebrationWith 3:24 remaining and the Bears down by 25 points, Lamarr Houston registered Chicagos lone sack of the contest. But the takedown of Jimmy Garoppolo for a loss of 11 would also mark the loss of Houston.The defensive end suffered a torn right ACL during his celebration and was placed on injured reserve the following week.It was Houstons first sack of the 2014 season. Hed bounce back with eight in 2015.Butlers initial pass breakupsAn undrafted tryout by way of West Alabama and Hinds Community College had a hand in things, too.Malcolm Butler recorded the first two pass deflections of his NFL career on back-to-back plays with under a minute remaining in that matinee against Chicago. Both were thrown by Bears backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen, with one intended for Brandon Marshall and the other for Alshon Jeffery.The rookie corner on a crowded depth chart played 15 snaps that day.Second glance at WhiteIt was a redshirt rookie season for James White. But the fourth-round running back from Wisconsin was on the field for the matchup with Chicago.Itd be the second appearance of Whites NFL tenure. Itd be one of just three hed make in 2014 behind the likes of Gray, Blount, Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden. And it saw him handle six carries for 17 yards and no receptions.Time has had its way. One Patriots fan decided to show his displeasure with Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hills 75-yard touchdown with a 16-ounce salute.And it will apparently be the last beer he drinks at Gillette Stadium.The Patriots just announced that the fan was located and his name was turned over to local police.Gillette Stadium security has identified the fan who violated the fan code of conduct by tossing beer onto a player during the game last night Limited Shaq Mason Jersey , the statement read. The matter has been turned over to local law enforcement and the fan will be sent a letter of disinvite to all future events at Gillette Stadium.Two things: 1) Good, and 2) Sent a letter of disinvite sounds a so much classier than we have banned this drunken idiot. (In the future, I will be sending letters of disinvite from my lawn to all you young whippersnappers and your trashy music.)Hills touchdown tied the game at 40 late in the fourth quarter, and has he reached the back of the end zone, a number of Patriots fans suggested to him that he was number one (or something, which you can see at the end of this clip).
75-yard touchdown. ...

The last few weeks of the NFL season can be a wild ride

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 10:46
Limited Danny Etling Jersey , particularly as playoff races heat up and bad weather becomes a potential factor in the Northeast and Midwest.The main slate contests on FanDuel and DraftKings feature just one game with a total above 50 points as the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots both try to secure their playoff positioning. For daily fantasy contests this will be a popular game to target and there are a few different ways to approach it.Jaylen Samuels remains a viable option again this week if James Conner sits. While coach Mike Tomlin suggested that the Steelers would use a committee approach, it was Samuels who saw 80 percent of snaps last week against the Oakland Raiders, including seven targets in the passing game. Samuels' versatility could provide value against a Patriots defense that is known for trying to take away the opposing team's primary weapons. With potential shadow coverage on one of Juju Smith-Schuster or Antonio Brown and safety help on the other, Ben Roethlisberger should continue to target Samuels out of the backfield. While Samuels did lose some goal line work to Stevan Ridley, his passing game upside makes him a viable target, particularly on DraftKings.Savvy daily players will also consider game stacks 鈥?or pairing a QB with multiple passing options from his own team, as well as at least one player from the opposing team. The Steelers vs Patriots game is ripe for game stacking and both sides of the ball look like strong options in DailyRoto's projections. Roethlisberger can be paired up with Samuels, Smith-Schuster, and/or Antonio Brown for high upside lineups if the game turns into a shootout.The stack of Roethlisberger, Brown and Smith-Schuster projects for upwards of 70 fantasy points in PPR formats and should account for nearly 50 percent of the Steelers targets. If the Steelers passing game goes off, the Patriots will be forced to throw to catch up and lineups that play a high volume of Steelers should consider "bringing it back" the other way with Rob Gronkowski. He is priced similar to a WR2 but showed that he has TE1 upside last week, going for 100+ receiving yards and a touchdown. Don't let Gronkowski's blunder on the Dolphins' desperation play scare you off of his upside in daily fantasy formats.On the Patriots side of the ball, game stacks are also viable Sony Michel Jersey Salute to Service , albeit a bit less predictable. While Roethlisberger funnels targets to Brown and Smith-Schuster, Tom Brady has been spreading it around with James White, Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, and Josh Gordon all averaging 15 percent or more targets on the season. Since Rex Burkhead's return to the lineup and Michel's return to health, White has seen his snap share decline to 40 percent, down from a season high of 80 percent. Because of this, DailyRoto's projections prefer to pair Brady with Gronkowski, Edelman or Gordon versus the Steelers.The distribution of the offense will be a challenge for users building just a single DFS lineup, so utilizing the Patriots in game stacks is a recommended approach for users building multiple lineups. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin created plenty of confusion by telling reporters on Sunday that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could have returned to the game against the Raiders earlier, but that they were in the rhythm and flow of the game. Roethlisberger tried to clear the air during his weekly radio show in Pittsburgh.Roethlisberger explained the situation step by step earlier in the hour on on 93.7 The Fan. At halftime, he went to the X-ray room at the antiquated Oakland Coliseum. Roethlisberger said that it took some time for the tech to show up, and that the X-rays were inconclusive. Roethsliberger attributed that to the X-ray machine being old.He said that Duke Dawson Jersey , by the time the X-rays were taken and the teams doctor was figuring out what to do, the third quarter had begun. Roethlisberger initially returned to the field with the goal of being available to backup Josh Dobbs and otherwise providing support to his teammates, and without a clear indication as to whether hed play.Roethlisberger said he got some medicine, which means he took a pain-killing injection. Concern nevertheless lingered about possibly making the situation worse, because they still didnt know what the injury was.For a while, the Steelers decided to let the game play itself out. Eventually, the medication kicked in, the Steelers lost their lead with 5:20 to play, and Roethlisberger told Tomlin, Im all right. Ill give you everything Ive got.They now know what the injury is after a Monday MRI, but Roethlisberger declined to disclose it. He said hell play on Sunday against the Patriots.And it will be a huge game for the Steelers. With a trip to New Orleans next on the docket, the Steelers could completely tumble out of the playoff field.

New York Giants rookie backup quarterback Kyle Lauletta

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 10:34
has been arrested on motor vehicle and related disorderly persons offenses while driving near a road construction site to practice.Weehawken police said the 22-year-old Lauletta was stopped Tuesday morning for failing to obey a police officer's order to continue driving straight in his 2017 Jaguar.The report says Lauletta almost hit the officer while making an illegal turn. He was stopped by a second police officer and refused to produce a driver's license or exit the car.Police say he was arrested and charged with eluding police http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/che...r-barwin-jersey , obstructing administration of law and resisting arrest. He was also charged with reckless driving, disregarding an officer's directions, improper turn and failure to remain in a marked lane.Police said Lauletta's car was involved in a similar incident Monday but summons were mailed because the vehicle did not stay at the scene.The incident happened close to renovations near the Lincoln Tunnel, which connects New Jersey with midtown Manhattan.Lauletta's was released on his recognizance, police said. A court date was not listed on the police statement.Lauletta was not immediately available for comment."We were made aware of the situation this morning, and we have been in contact with Kyle," Giants coach Pat Shurmur said in a statement after talking to reporters after practice. "We are still in the process of gathering information. This is obviously very disappointing."Shurmur initially told reporters that everyone on the team attended Tuesday practice, one of the last before the Giants (1-7) shutter for a bye week.While he has not been active for any game, Lauletta has been mentioned speculatively as a potential replacement for two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, who is struggling. New York is nearly out of the playoff hunt for the second straight year.Lauletta was selected in the fourth round of the draft out of Richmond. Alex Tanney is the other backup.Halfback Saquon Barkley, who was the second overall pick in the draft, was surprised by the accusations."Yeah. I know Kyle really well, and it definitely was shocking," Barkley said. "I don't know too much about it to speak on it to be honest, but yeah I know it's really nothing. I know it sounds crazy http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/che...rmstrong-jersey , but it's probably nothing crazy because of the kind of person he is." There's no doubt halfback Saquon Barkley is the most-hyped rookie to join the New York Giants since future Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor donned the blue in 1981.Within weeks of being taken second overall in the draft, the likable 21-year-old from Penn State had the hottest-selling jersey in the NFL. Seemingly half the kids wearing jerseys at training camp had his No. 26 look.When he touched the ball in camp, there were 'oohs and aahs' from the fans, and visions of him going to the house in the regular season to help revive a franchise that went 3-13 last season, the second-worst record in the league.Dream time is over. With the season opener at home against 2017 AFC runner-up Jacksonville on Sunday, it's time for Barkley to live up to the hype, just as Taylor did after also being taken with the No. 2 overall pick."I just want to play," Barkley said after a short practice Monday. "It's finally here. The season is finally here. I didn't get to play as much as I would like in the preseason, but now it's here and it counts now, so I am just excited to get on the road. You can tell, the energy of the team is high and we're all just excited for this game and this season."Barkley had four carries in the preseason for 43 yards. The number was originally reported as five after the first preseason game against Cleveland, but an official review silently changed it.It stayed at four after Barkley slightly strained a hamstring on Aug. 13 and didn't play in the final three preseason games. It was a precautionary move."The one week I didn't get that much practice, but after that I was back on my normal schedule," he said. "I feel pretty confident and I feel pretty good. I just have to continue to attack practice and get better.For the next week, Barkley plans to immerse himself in watching videotapes of the Jaguars' defense http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/che...-goodson-jersey , a group that last season was the best in franchise history and is loaded with Pro Bowl players.Barkley has set some personal goals, but he hopes to focus on his next play."I'm not a numbers type of guy who says I need this many yards, this many touchdowns," Barkley said. "My goal is to attack every single day and get better every single day. The rest of the stuff will take care of itself."Barkley isn't sure how many tickets he will need for his NFL debut. His parents and his family are coming to MetLife Stadium and, of course, there might be some surprise visitors he needs to accommodate.New coach Pat Shurmur caught Barkley off-guard when he talked about the return game Monday. The Giants waived returners Kalif Raymond and Hunter Sharp over the weekend and were awarded Kaelin Clay on waivers. Clay has handled return work in games and would seem to be the best option Sunday.If they are ready, Shurmur said that Odell Beckham Jr. and Barkley would be options. He did not mention Cody Latimer, who also has experience as a returner."I'll be eager to definitely be in the mix of kickoff return. I did it in college," said Barkley, who returned two kickoffs for touchdowns last season. "I was able to help my team out in college in that area. If they, or if I show that I'm capable of doing that for the Giants, why not? It's definitely something I feel comfortable with."Don't count on it this early in the season.NOTES: LB Olivier Vernon (ankle) did not practice Monday. Shurmur hopes to have him back Wednesday. ... TE Evan Engram was on the field but remains in the concussion protocol. ... With Davis Webb being cut, Shurmur would not say who is No. 2 behind QB Eli Manning. He hinted it might be Alex Tanney instead of rookie Kyle Lauletta because he likes have a veteran behind the starter.

Giants at Lions preseason Week 2: 3 reasons to watch

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 10:23
Your New York Giants are in action Friday night (7 p.m. ET/NFLN Cheap Landon Collins Jersey , WNBC) at Ford Field in Detroit as they take on the Detroit Lions in Week 2 of the 2018 NFL preseason. The regular season is creeping closer, which means each week and each game is gaining importance. Here is why you should be watching tonights game.Starters will play moreCoach Pat Shurmur is evasive when it comes to playing time. Still, it is logical to believe we should see more of the Giants first-teamers vs. Detroit. Offensive starters played only two series vs. the Cleveland Browns, with defensive starters getting a third series after surrendering a Cleveland touchdown. Dont be surprised to see some starters play into the second quarter Friday night.Davis Webb vs. Kyle LaulettaIs the door open, at least a crack, for Lauletta to steal the No. 2 quarterback job that has been assumed for months to belong to Webb? Maybe, but probably not. Yet. Webb had a rough preseason opener vs. Cleveland, while Lauletta played well. No matter what, it is fun to watch these two young quarterbacks develop, and compete. I have said before and will say again, though, this is a long-term competition and not a three- or four-week one.Position battles Chris and Dan did excellent offensive and defensive what to watch breakdowns looking at the various position battles. You can find those here:Giants vs. Lions: Giants offensive players who need strong performancesGiants at Lions: 11 Giants with the most to prove on defenseI just want to highlight a few of the position battles, and players, I am most interested in seeing Friday night.Wayne Gallman The second-year running back has been the third-team back behind Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Stewart. Coach Pat Shurmur said this week he has been gaining an appreciation for Gallman. With no Barkley tonight, Gallman has a big opportunity to force the Giants to consider getting him more snaps once the regular season starts.Amba Etta-Tawo A spring and early-summer sensation, Etta-Tawo drew a big pass interference call vs. the Browns last week but had no catches. He would seem to be on the bubble between 53-man roster and a likely practice squad spot, and could use a big game.Starting offensive line The revamped group didnt play badly against the Browns, but there were a couple of communication issues picking up stunts and blitzes. With a little more game-planning going into this game, will that issue improve? Also, to be honest Im still looking for Jon Halapio to show me why the Giants believe he can be their starting center.Backup offensive linemen We talked about this position battle earlier in the week. The snap counts tonight might give us an indication of who might be in and which guys should maybe make sure they dont sign any long-term leases.A.J. Francis vs. Robert Thomas Good friend and Giants beat writer Patricia Traina said the other day on Locked on Giants she thinks there is only room for one of these guys on the 53-man roster. With Josh Mauro suspended for the first four games and R.J. McIntosh still on the Active/Non-Football Illness list I believe there is room for both. If nothing else, though, they are competing for snaps as part of the defensive line rotation.Can Curtis Riley grab his chance? After two years as a backup corner with the Tennessee Titans, Riley came to the Giants without high expectations. With Darian Thompson not really impressing, and now missing time with a hamstring, Riley has a chance tonight to cement his status as the starting free safety.Backup cornerbacks Whos it gonna be? Donte Deayon is frittering away his chance as he deals with a hamstring injury. William Gay, B.W. Webb, Grant Haley, Leonard Johnson and Chris Lewis-Harris all remain in the fray when it comes to figuring the corners behind Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple. A burning ship.Its an image I cant seem to get out of my head after New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur said, in discussing the teams injured players, that You burn the ships on every game.With a 1-4 start to the 2018 season, the recent controversy over the remarks by Odell Beckham Jr. Cheap B.J. Hill Jersey , Lil Waynes blunt response to Eli Manning and those wondering why he was involved in the Beckham-Josina Anderson interview, and the release of a benched former first-round pick this week, you might think the ship that might be the Giants 2018 season is fully ablaze.Is it really, though? The Giants have the good fortune at this point of playing in the mediocre NFC East, where the 2-2 Washington Redskins lead the division. 1 - Washington Redskins (2-2)2 - Dallas Cowboys (2-3)3 - Philadelphia Eagles (2-3)4 - New York Giants (1-4)The Giants ship might not be completely on fire but it has taken on some water. The Giants, though, dont appear to be looking for the life boats yet. They are talking like a team determined to bail the water, patch the holes and try to things right this season.Tight end Evan Engram, who has a chance to play after missing the past two weeks with an MCL sprain, says the Giants are well aware of the standings and know that this Thursday is a huge game for us.The Giants have 11 games to play, and five of those are against division rivals. The first of those, of course, is Thursday night when the host the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles at MetLife Stadium.If they win that one, the Giants will be right in the middle of what Engram called a pretty wide open division.Giants coach Pat Shurmur isnt focused on those standings.That really has no effect on us right now. We have to go out and win a game. That is what it is, but its just another indication and Ive been saying it all along, you just keep playing. You never know. I think the last two times that the Giants made the (playoffs), I think they were 9-7, so weve just got to keep playing, he said on Tuesday.Players, though, are aware of the standingsVeteran EDGE rusher Connor Barwin admitted the divisions mediocrity makes it easier to stay positive.Youre still playing games that are meaningful, are very meaningful, with the way the division is playing out right now, he said.Rookie running back Saquon Barkley said the Giants goals are still within reach:I think everyones goal is to win a Super Bowl and thats still in play and in my opinion, if you ask me, like you said I think were a game behind in the division and I know I havent been in the NFL for a long time, but I think if you win your division, you automatically go into the playoffs, so everything like I said before, that coach Shurmur said a couple weeks ago, everything that we want in our season is still there Cheap Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , Barkley said.As his locker on Tuesday, Beckham put it this way:I think you could take away everything thats happened this season, I think the urgency is what it is right now. We know we need to win right now, regardless of our situation, he said. The mentality is to win each and every game and now there is a big opportunity ahead of us to be able to take control of our season and build from this even after the bad that weve had already. We can overcome it all starting with this game not just one game, but starting with this game, and going from there on.The Giants feel like they are getting betterThat was Engram on Tuesday. And yes, it sounds a bit like pie-in-the-sky player speak, like what the Giants have to say with more that two-thirds of the season remaining. You get the sense, though, that they do believe they are on the upswing.I dont know if you watched us last weekends game, but there was a point in that game where maybe last year or the old DNA of this team wouldve given up or wouldve tapped out. We fought, Engram said. Our confidence ...

Fantasy football Week 6 waiver wire: 5 players

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 10:12
you need to target this week Here we are in the thick of the fantasy season near the midway point. Breakouts and waiver wire steals keep getting harder to find http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authe...r-barwin-jersey , but there are a few values out there to be had. I wont list Taylor Gabriel officially in this weeks post he was listed last week but had a bye in Week 5 but if he went unnoticed and is still available on waivers probable, hes only rostered in 19 percent of Yahoo leagues hes worth an add.Now for the official waiver-wire targets for Week 6:Robby Anderson, WR, New York JetsRostered - Yahoo: 35 percent | ESPN: 41.9 percentIt took the Jets five weeks, but they finally figured out Robby Anderson can be a useful piece to include in the offense. Anderson had a 41-yard touchdown reception in Week 1 then his production and target share dropped off. Against Denver on Sunday, Anderson had three catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns on five targets. Hes not going to put up those numbers all the time, but Anderson should be a threat to score deep any time the Jets go to him. The question will be if the Jets will keep going to him. If hes a consistent target in the passing game, hell be well worth an add someone had already cut bait with him in your league.Wendell Smallwood, RB, Philadelphia EaglesRostered - Yahoo: 7 percent | ESPN: 7.5 percentWith Jay Ajayi placed on injured reserve Monday, the Eagles are currently looking at a running back by committee for the foreseeable future. While thats usually a mess for fantasy purposes, Smallwood could be a short-term answer. With Corey Clement out on Sunday, Smallwood had three receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown. He split time with Ajayi on the field 49 percent of the snaps each and could in the favorite to get more work as the Eagles have a short week to prepare for a Thursday night game against the Giants. Smallwood might not be a great long-term play, but if youre either desperate or deep enough to take a flier, Smallwood could have some value over the next few weeks as the Eagles figure out what to do for the rest of the season.Keke Coutee, WR, Houston TexansRostered - Yahoo: 34 percent | ESPN: 19.6 percentIf you waited a week to see of Keke Coutees production could be sustained and hes still sitting on waivers http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authe...-goodson-jersey , strike now. Over the past two weeks, Coutee has 22 targets, 17 receptions, 160 yards, and a touchdown. Houston is a team that is going to pass often Deshaun Watson has 40 attempts in each of the past three games and the Texans have already shown they want to find ways to get Coutee the ball, even in an offense with DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. Over the past two games, Coutee has a target share of 25.6 percent. Thats a high upside play still available in nearly 70 percent of Yahoo leagues and 80 percent of ESPN leagues.Kyle Jusczyzk, RB, San Francisco 49ersRostered - Yahoo: 0 percent | ESPN: 0.8 percentNo one rosters fullbacks in fantasy, but Jusczyzk isnt exactly a typical fullback. Hes more of an H-back playing for a coach who loves to scheme him open in the passing game. With Matt Briedas status questionable with what at least is not a high ankle sprain, Jusczyzk could be in line for more playing time even as Alfred Morris takes over the lead back role. In PPR leagues, Jusczyzk has more fantasy points than Morris. He got six receptions on seven targets for 75 yards in Week 5 when the 49ers needed production at running back when trailing. Geoff Swaim, TE, Dallas CowboysRostered - Yahoo: 9 percent | ESPN: 7.3 percentTight end has been a wasteland over the past few weeks. This past week in start/sit, I literally told you to start whoever was healthy. The Dallas passing offense might not be one youre super excited to latch on to, but he was second on the team with three targets against Houston for 55 yards and had five and seven targets over the previous two games. Theres not a lot of upside there, but again if youre desperate theres a theme here hell get at least some volume for a position that has been highly volatile this year. The New York Giants trail the Carolina Panthers 20-13 after Sundays first half.For the first time this season the Giants got the ball to start the game Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , but the change did nothing to spark the offense. The team did try to look down the field some in the passing game after being heavily criticized for their conservatism against New Orleans. Unfortunately the pass protection was once again spotty at best, with Manning getting time on some passes, but too often having to dodge rushers in the backfield. Meanwhile, the running game was a disaster, with Saquon Barkley barely moving the ball until he broke a 20-yard gain on a terrific jump cut. Even counting that play, he only had 19 yards on 8 carries.Later that drive, Barkley caught a 56-yard touchdown pass from Odell Beckham Jr. on a trick play.Meanwhile, the Giants defense struggled mightily with tackling, rarely able to wrap up and bring any of the Panthers ball carriers down on initial contact. The team also largely failed to get any pressure on Cam Newton in the pass rush. Still, the defense has once again kept the offense in the game.After the teams longest punt return of the season to start the game by Odell Beckham and field goals of 42 and 53 yards by Aldrick Rosas, the Giants special teams was a liability. The low-light being a muffed punt by Beckham, which was recovered by the Panthers in the end zone for a touchdown.All told, it was an ugly, sloppy, embarrassing half for the Giants on offense and defense. Hopefully the team will be able to make some kind of adjustment at the half. The Giants only trail the Panthers by a touchdown at the half, and still might be able to mount a comeback.The Panthers will get the ball to start the second half.

The San Francisco 49ers are in the midst of a short

:  liny195 @ 17.1.2019, 10:02
week in preparation for Thursday Night Football Cheap DeForest Buckner Jersey , but tonight is a big night! Its Halloween, and while adults likely did their celebrating over the weekend, Wednesday night will be a big opportunity for parents and kids to get out there and find some candy.49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said on a Wednesday morning KNBR interview he will not be able to get out for Halloween in part because of the short week. The coaching staff is getting ready for TNF, and Shanahan had even forgotten it was the big day.Given the number of people randomly dressed up I used to see in San Francisco, it could just be another Wednesday!It sounds like his wife will likely be taking the kids out for trick-or-treating. Shanahan said his son is going as the bad guy from Scream, wearing the scary mask even though he doesnt know about the movie. His oldest daughter will be going as a vampire and his youngest daughter will be a fairy.What do yall have planned for Halloween tonight, or did you have your fun over the weekend? My wife and I and a couple friends are going to see the new Beetlejuce musical. Its opening here in DC and then moving to Broadway in the spring. I love the movie, and Ive heard nothing but good things about the musical. Im not a big musical guy, but Im thinking Ill enjoy this.Happy Halloween!49ers fantasy football pick-ups, drops for Week 4 The San Francisco 49ers have been retooled with a quarterback change. Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs which means his season is over http://www.49erscheapstore.com/k_waun-williams-jersey-cheap , but dont worry well get to that. Now that C.J. Beathard is in the game, well need to look at how his sophomore performance stacks up with the wide receivers. This is a very depressing fantasy week for 49ers fans. As always, percentage owned numbers are based on Yahoo! leagues.Pick-upsC.J. Beathard% Owned: 1Week 3 stats: Nothing (thanks refs)With Garoppolo out and the weapons the 49ers have, youd think Beathard wouldnt be a bad backup, right? No. This is for the three of you were crazy enough to roll with that logic. Take your hands off the left click. Do. Not. Pick. Up. Beathard. While Im optimistic Beathards sophomore season will be an improvement over his rookie outing, hed have to play lights out to even think of wasting a bench slot. Dont go homer for this guy. Hes not worth a bench slot in this league. Ever. Really, dont do it. Pick up or dont pick up: Dont pick him up. Unless you already have nothing to play for and are trying to make an all-Niner team. Alfred Morris% Owned: 53Week 3 stats: 14 carries, 67 yardsAs becoming tradition, the 49ers split running back carries, with Matt Breida getting the slight lions share of the work this time around. 14 carries for 67 yards and no passes doesnt bode well for Morris who was used more in the traditional running back mold. Except one difference: Matt Breida is listed as questionable for Week 4 with a hyper-extended right knee. Even if Breida is ready to go on Sunday Youth Richard Sherman Jersey , thats not an injury that will have him at 100 percent which may make Morris the featured back.If Breida is out, expect Morris to play bell cow.All things considered, that would increase his workload. If you are in a PPR league that grants points per carry, theres some treasure to get from this. To add more fun to this scenario, the 49ers may very well run the ball more now that Beathard is behind center , granting carries for all!Just one problem. Until we are proven otherwise, Beathard isnt the greatest at this throwing the football thing, and the league knows it. Expect defenses to quickly stack the box to where the running backs may not get much room at all. Look at the Cleveland Browns and Carlos Hyde, he now is one of the sneakiest picks someone could have had since Mayfield actually makes lanes for him to run in now that Tyrod Taylors bad throwing is no longer a benefit.That considered, the opportunity for volume in a system where everyone is going to stack the box may just find Morris open anyways. This is Kyle freaking Shanahan were talking about here.Speaking of Beathard Cheap Dante Pettis Jersey , if you have Breida or Morris, this stat should make you very, very happy. Pick up or dont pick up: If you need a running back, pick him up. Maybe not with your first waiver claim, but definitely find a way to get him on your team for the foreseeable future. Fools goldAll of the 49ers wide receivers% Owned: Dont get us startedThe 49ers passing game is taking a huge hit with the season-ending injury of Garoppolo. This devalues the stock of the wide receivers. For now, they (hopefully) have been on your bench because none of them have done anything to merit being a started beyond a flex spot (unless youre in a deeper league). Notice, we are limiting this to wide receivers. George Kittle is about to become a must-start tight end with this roster change. You read it here first. That said, keep what you have on the bench. We dont know what Beathard will do in his second season or if he has a favorite target that isnt Kittle/running backs. Give it a week or two if you can sustain the bench because he may have a go-to guy that he wants to throw to, and only throw to themwhich makes that pass-catcher money in a PPR league. Well, as long as he can throw in their zip code. Drop or dont drop: If you got a wide receiver on your team Cheap Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , wait a week or two to see who Beathard favors, then make some decisions accordingly. Jimmy Garoppolo% Owned: 86Week 4 stats: 20 completions, 251 yards; 2 touchdownsLook at that stat train. Thats a Jimmy G were familiar with, and had it not been for that last minute injury, the 49ers may have won that game against KC. Unfortunately, we also have to set things straight: His season is over. Jimmy G is gone and hes not coming back.At least in 2018. Its time to part ways. So what happens? Well you know you gotta let him go. Release him from your bench and get a new backup or starting QB. Id recommend Baker Mayfield for a week while you figure it out. Hell give defenses fits for a week or two while theres no film and then you can grab whoever is on the board that can fill out your seasonor just stream a QB. Things to keep in mind: Garoppolos season in fantasy wasnt terrible. For 2019, hes definitely a sneaky play in the later rounds as he wont be getting reached like he was in 2018. You might even want to snag him for a keeper league if you find yourself out of other options, but that might not be worth the keeper tag as your first round running back or wide receiver or even a different quarterback could be better depending on your scoring.But yes, folks. Time to move on. Drop or dont drop: Drop him.
