Josh Paul is Angels’ new bench coach, replacing Dino Ebel

Josh Paul has been named the Los Angeles Angels’ bench coach.

Alex Smith was fantasy’s top-scoring quarterback during the Chiefs’ demolition of the league during Weeks 1-5. Since that point, however, he sits 13th. Smith totaled 12 touchdowns and no turnovers during the five-game winning streak to begin the year but has seven scores and four turnovers during the recent 1-4 slump. Smith’s hot start got our attention, but a breakout in his 13th NFL season was always unlikely. Smith has never finished a season better than 13th at the position in fantasy points and has reverted to fringe QB1 territory in recent weeks. Despite his recent struggles, Smith has a very appealing upcoming schedule and should be in lineups against Buffalo’s floundering defense this week.

Having reached the quarter mark of the 2017-18 season, it’s time to review the summer’s most notable free-agent signings for early indications of success.

Studying all the significant free-agent contracts signed since July 1, some have already paid dividends, while others are yet to work out. And, some of them are projected to achieve good value over the long term, while others are not.

Ben Roethlisberger exploded for 299 yards and four touchdowns against the Titans in Week 11. It was the first game this season in which Roethlisberger scored more than twice in a game and marked his third-highest passing-yardage total.

Falcons waive Jalen Collins after 10-game suspension ends

Later that month, the owners were set to vote on granting the six-member compensation committee, led by Arthur Blank, authority to begin negotiating Goodell’s extension. To get the requisite 21 votes to move forward, Blank felt he needed the powerful Jones behind him. I want you on the committee, Blank said.
Women's Colin Wilson Premier Green Adidas Jersey: NHL Nashville Predators #33 Salute to Service
I won’t go on the committee, Jones replied. I want to be an ombudsman. I want to literally represent the owners who are not on the committee.

That position was approved. At the NFL’s spring meetings in Chicago, owners — including Jones — voted unanimously to extend Goodell’s contract, giving Blank, and Goodell, enormous leverage. Jones railed later that he and owners didn’t spend a single minute reviewing Goodell’s job performance.

Seth Jones Game Jersey
Jones, 28, has just 43 receptions for 658 yards and a lone touchdown this season, but it’s not just Jones’ fault, the entire Falcons offense has struggled.

The Falcons began the season with three straight wins, jumping out to an early lead in the NFC South. But their recent skid has knocked them back to third in the division and currently out of the playoff picture.

A home win against the surging Cowboys could be just what the Falcons need to get back on track.

Instead, nothing could be further from the truth. The Vikings have relied on Keenum since Week 2 after Bradford’s knee locked up in the opener, and all he has done since is play like a superstar. Keenum’s QBR jumped up to 73.9 this season, placing him second in the league behind Watson. He continues to hold on to the football, having gone down to just five sacks and zero fumbles in eight starts.

A-Rod, I remember what Joe Torre once did to Roger Clemens in the second or third inning of the ALCS. He took him out. Springer is struggling badly. He’s not even hitting his pitch. That is baseball. You gotta keep the line moving. It happened to you, it happened to everyone in baseball. Why not to him? Move him. Somewhere else. He’s not helping me as a leadoff man.

Throughout the game, McClure could hear Schulte jawing back and forth with Taylor and would see him hitting LT after the whistle. The quarterback wasn’t enthused; as the linebacker got more frustrated with the late hits, he would take his anger out on the QB.

Ball shouldn’t be categorized as a disappointment, because he’ll rise up the rankings quickly if his shot starts to fall, but there are several bigger-name veterans who are off to surprisingly bad starts.

These jerseys are atrocious. The Thunder have had the worst uniforms in the league since their inception. When was the last time you saw something orange and blue and thought, I want that. Also, when was the last time you saw actual thunder and thought, That looked orange and blue. This team is in desperate need of a re-design. And the obvious solution here is to give Russell Westbrook creative control of the uniforms. Every night the team would end up wearing a subtle diss about Kevin Durant.

Michigan at Wisconsin (Nov. 18): Wisconsin has had no problem winning over AP or Coaches Poll voters. But if the Badgers are ever going to convince the CFP selection committee that they are better than their woeful strength of schedule/record, this visit from the Wolverines — coming one week after a home date with Iowa — is their chance. The real impact here reaches beyond Madison.

The Big Ten’s other playoff hopeful, Ohio State, needs Wisconsin and Michigan to be at their best at the season’s end, as the Buckeyes will be looking for wins to add to their Penn State victory and water down the memories of their Week 2 loss to Oklahoma.

Another Authentic Larry Csonka Jersey versatile rookie in a similar boat is highly touted Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball (89), whose strengths (7.5 RPG, 7.7 APG, 1.3 SPG) are being negated by his poor shooting (31.1 FG%, 55.6 FT%) and high turnovers (3.5 TPG).

Second-year Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, the 2016 Defensive Rookie of the Year, sacked Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Sunday to give him 19 for his career. Bosa has the more sacks through the first 20 games of his career than any other NFL player since sacks became an official stat in 1982.

Game Jersey He also announced this offseason the launch of his own non-profit, with an emphasis on cancer awareness; the name is the Faith, Fight, Finish Foundation, invoking the three words Peggy used to encourage her three sons.

When they do, you can rest assured he will still be on the waiver wire for you to consider his services again. But for now, his five points can’t compete with some of the available players suggested here.

Being ranked outside the first top four isn’t the end of the world: If all those teams fell out, someone had to replace them, right? Last year was the least volatile of the three CFP seasons.

To some vacant lot to be named later in Queens?

Understand this: Tavares wants to be an Islander. He loves being an Islander. He’s made it known, throughout his career, that returning this franchise to championship glory is important to him.

But at this point, it has to be weighing on Tavares to constantly worry about the direction of the New York Islanders: Not just on the ice, where he’s been to the playoffs three times and out of the first round once in nine seasons; but also literally in what direction the franchise will be moving next. To a new arena at Belmont Park, after the Brooklyn debacle ends?

“We thought about it for about 10 minutes and said this is too good of an opportunity to not take advantage of, and so we jumped at it,” Lynch said.

“Big-time player, great performer. He stepped up big. Huge play. Biggest play in history,” Antonio Brown said afterwards. However, guard David DeCastro had the most fitting description of the play.”He was moving like he was riding his bike,” said DeCastro.

Before throwing in the towel on Ajayi, let’s take a look at the metrics to see if trying too hard seems to be the cause of his subpar production.

Ajayi was kept home before Miami’s Week 1 road game against the Seattle Seahawks Jersey

The move comes four days after coach Adam Gase said the Dolphins had the worst offense in football after the team’s 40-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night. Miami ranks last in the NFL with 252.4 yards per game.

Ajayi was selected to the 2016 Pro Bowl after finishing fourth in the NFL with 1,272 rushing yards, the third-highest season total in Dolphins history.

He had an early run-in with Gase when he expressed displeasure about not winning the starting job over Arian Foster at the beginning of the 2016 season.

The Cavs rank 14th in the league in offensive efficiency, scoring 104.3 Joonas Korpisalo Jersey points per 100 possessions, and they rank 16th in pace, using 100.3 possessions per game.

Focused more on getting in better shape, Lue said. I see after today’s practice, watching us today, damn. It’s a big difference. I’m screaming play with pace, and move the ball, move bodies, we got to get in better shape to do that. Lue said that James — Cleveland’s leader in points (24.6), assists (8.6) and steals (1.0) per game — is also not in the type of shape he needs to be in after playing in only one of the Cavs’ five preseason games because of a sprained left ankle.

That’s hard when future plans are fragile. Larry Brooks of the New York Post details this quandary, explaining that the current front-runner for a new arena, the Belmont Park proposal, is a complex, multi-stage process involving multiple bidders. That’s going to take some time. It’s very likely that Feb. 26 — the NHL trade deadline — will come and go without approval on the project.

Lance McCullers Jr. will take the mound for the Houston Astros Jersey

Among the many things on the mind of Cal Wayne this past weekend, the Houston Astros ranked third or fourth. We met before Game 5 in a parking lot of a local sports bar starting to fill up with fans. I’d heard of him during my stay in Houston for the World Series: described as the best rapper in the city, famous inside the neighborhood Drew Bledsoe Womens Jersey where he grew up and basically anonymous outside the 281, 832 and 713 area codes. He’s from the Cuney Homes, a famous, or infamous, housing project on the south side, and except for the nine years he lost to prison in four separate stints, he has spent his life trying to take his music to a wide enough audience to hit it big.

We stopped off at Timmy Chan’s to get some wings and rice and gravy. (We were saving his favorite chicken joint Frenchy’s for a late night run after the game, he explained.)

Lance McCullers Jr. will take the mound for the Houston Astros, while the Dodgers will go with Yu Darvish. Both are hoping to rebound from rocky performances earlier in the World Series.

Selection committee chair Kirby Hocutt said he doesn’t pay attention to the AP poll. What matters now is the committee’s ranking, and how many wins contenders earned against teams ranked in the committee’s top 25.

So where does the committee rank USC and NC State? That’s important to Notre Dame’s r茅sum茅. Where does it rank Virginia Tech and Auburn? That matters to Clemson. And how about surging Iowa State? That’s important to the entire Big 12.

While the bulk of the attention is always drawn to the top four, it’s often teams 12-25 that are the most difficult to rank and can have the biggest impact on the contenders’ overall strength of schedule.

The Minutemen (2-6) earned an emotional 30-27 double-overtime win over Appalachian State, the favorite to win the Sun Belt Conference. Despite winning their second straight game, there was very little jubilation after the game.

Authentic Mens Tom Wilson Jersey The Minutemen had more important things on their minds, like the health of starting quarterback Andrew Ford.

With just over five minutes left in the second quarter, Brooks Reed Authentic Jersey Ford threw an interception and while trying to make the tackle, he was blindsided by Appalachian State lineman Myquot Stout, who drew a personal foul penalty. Ford was immobilized for several minutes, face down while teammates and trainers gathered around him.

The Badgers (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten) will play at Indiana (3-5, 0-5) at noon ET on Saturday. It’s the first time the teams have met since 2013.

Freshman Jonathan Taylor leads the Badgers’ powerful rushing attack with 1,185 yards on 161 carries, 7.4 yards per carry, with 11 touchdowns. Three times he has rushed for more than 200 yards this season with a high of 249 against Nebraska.

In contrast, Indiana’s leading rusher, freshman Morgan Ellison, has 473 yards on 100 carries in seven games. Ellison missed the game against Maryland because of an injury last week and his status in question.

Despite the teams trending in opposite directions, McDermott still thinks the Jets are a threat.

Don’t let the record fool you, McDermott said of New York. This is a good football team.

But, for the Bills, the game is a chance to prove they belong with the conference’s elite teams.

Said Taylor: Everyone’s going to be tuning into ‘Thursday Night Football,’ (and we want) to show this team is real.

It was the 11th assist for Gaudreau, who leads the team with 14 points.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are now the only team Westbrook hasn’t recorded a triple-double against, after he notched his third of the season and 82nd of his career in a 101-69 win over the Bulls.

Benjamin never turned into the next Megatron, for sure, and losing a year to an ACL tear didn’t help. But having him looks, on the surface, better than not having him. Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane, who were on site in Carolina when Benjamin was drafted, seemed to think the Bills were better off with Benjamin than without. They’re 5-2 with their sights set on more.

The Panthers are 5-3. Their sights are set on … what, exactly? The negative is pretty obvious, to borrow Cam’s phrase. The optimism, not so much.

Monahan converted Gaudreau’s pass for the go-ahead goal 9:09 into the third period Sunday night and the Calgary Flames broke a four-game home losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals.

After not finding anyone open as he carried the puck toward the net, Gaudreau curled back at the faceoff dot and tried again, this time spotting Monahan alone at the far post. All the Flames’ leading goal scorer had to do was slide in his sixth of the season.

“That’s Johnny. We see it day-in, day-out. He’s got great hands and he’s got quick feet. He reads the game better than anyone I know,” Monahan said. “If you get open in a quiet area you’re usually going to find the puck.”

The Astros lead the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-2, in the best-of-seven series and opened as a slight favorite in Game 6. Game 7 would be Wednesday in Los Angeles, if necessary.

Sources tell ESPN that brokers own roughly 15,000 tickets for each World Series game at Dodgers Stadium. The Dodgers sell more season tickets to brokers Ryan McDonagh Jersey than any other franchise in Major League Baseball, sources said. The season ticket allows the brokers to also purchase a commensurate amount of postseason tickets.

According to three brokers, the average price of a ticket to a potential Game 7 is expected to be around $2,000. In total, minus initial costs, there is more than $20 million in profit on the line for brokers in Tuesday’s Game 6. If the Astros win, the tickets are worth nothing.
