Top streaming options for fantasy football Week 8

Each week of the NFL campaign we will sift through the deeper options at each position with an eye on identifying streaming fantasy commodities with valuable matchups to consider.

The Broncos also have learned just how valuable wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is to their offense. He was Siemian’s go-to guy for field stretching and dirty work in the slot. Sanders going down with an ankle injury last week led to a big absence against the Chargers, who were able to give top cornerback Casey Hayward coverage support on No. 1 wideout Demaryius Thomas.

Thomas has had trouble breaking free over the past two seasons when double-teamed. His one breakout catch against the Chargers was called back with a penalty after he resorted to pushing off on Hayward.

Players must have at least a 20 percent start percentage (“Start%”) in either standard PPR or non-PPR scoring, or must rank among the top 20 quarterbacks, tight ends or kickers, top 50 running backs or wide receivers, or top 40 defensive linemen, linebackers or defensive backs, in terms of total fantasy points at their position from 2015-17, for inclusion in the chart. All defense/special teams are included, regardless of whether they met those minimums.

Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts (35.1 percent): As we mentioned with Kroft, it’s hard to find a trustable tight end week to week. Doyle’s volume the past two games has been terrific, as he has posted 18 total targets and 11 catches, including a score. Although Doyle has just one catch of more than 20 yards this season, he has consistently been involved as part of an Indy offense that has found itself playing from behind frequently. He’s a usable tight end, be it to replace a struggling starter or to fill in for a player who is injured or on a bye.chargers_011

Saints release former starting cornerback Sterling Moore Jersey

Elite Mens Mike Alstott Jersey The New Orleans Saints released former starting cornerback Sterling Moore on Wednesday.
Men's Florida Panthers #68 Jaromir Jagr Reebok White Away Premier NHL Jersey
Moore, 27, was a valuable fill-in for the Saints last year when their secondary was ravaged by injuries. But he was barely playing this year — active in only two games with three tackles behind younger corners Marshon Lattimore, Ken Crawley and P.J. Williams. Lattimore has emerged as New Orleans’ No. 1 cornerback and has been one of the NFL’s top rookies this season.

Moore became even more expendable when the Saints designated cornerback Delvin Breaux for return from injured reserve last week. Breaux will be eligible to play for the first time in Week 9.

Then, a scuffle broke out that included Ravens head coach John Harbaugh angrily shouting at Alonso.

Limited Arik Armstead Jersey Shortly after all of that, Baltimore announced that Flacco had a concussion and would not be returning.

By late morning, Goodell finally moved the discussion to the protests. It was a special privileged session, with only owners plus one adviser allowed. Snyder spoke first. He said that there were real business issues at stake, and he mentioned that in his market, the defense industry and other sponsors were angry about the protests. He didn’t put any dollars on it. To many in the room, Snyder’s speech felt like an opening act for the headlining band.

His parents’ living room felt more like a funeral parlor. Dad, I’m at a complete dead end, he said. He knew he wouldn’t even be allowed to compete for the job. I remember telling him, there is a reason you were picked, Dantonio says. People don’t usually Coty Sensabaugh Authentic Jersey do this. They must feel pretty good about you.

Doug Marrone Jersey electing to punt in Jags’ OT loss was biggest coaching mistake of NFL Week 4

The Jacksonville Jaguars entered Week 4 with a surprising 2-1 record and chance to make some real noise in the AFC South. Sure, Blake Bortles is still trash, but the defense is legit and Leonard Fournette looks like the real deal early on. There’s just enough here to scrape together a decent season if the pieces fall right. All they had to do was beat the lowly New York Jets, and they would have their first 3-1 start since the 2007 season (which, coincidentally, was the last time they made the playoffs).
Men's Nike Pittsburgh Steelers #12 Terry Bradshaw Limited Black USA Flag Fashion NFL Jersey
I think that’s tough. I think that, but at the end of the day, that’s not an excuse, O’Brien said. We have to do better in all three phases.

There’s more to it than just counting on the next man up. Houston’s secondary is its weakest point. The Texans let A.J. Bouye and safety Quintin Demps walk in free agency. Their top cornerback, Kevin Johnson, should be back on the field soon, but he’s been sidelined since Week 2 with a knee sprain.

After the decision was announced, the NFL said that Elliott would serve his suspension immediately and could return to the Cowboys on Friday, Nov. 24, according to Ian Rapoport. Elliott was handed the suspension after a year-long investigation into domestic violence allegations made against him in July 2016.

Limited Youth Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey On Thursday, Elliott’s legal team said they were still deciding on the next step.

Sean Couturier Kids Jersey We are currently exploring all of our legal options and will make a decision as to what is the best course of action in the next few days, Elliott’s Noah Juulsen Jersey lawyer Frank Salzano said, via Rapoport. The NFLPA also released a statement saying it was considering all options. The statement also said, The appellate court decision focuses on the jurisdictional issues. The failures of due process by the NFL articulated in the district court’s decision were not addressed.

Saints special-teamer Nathan Stupar Jersey has torn ACL

The New Orleans Saints lost core special teams player and backup linebacker Nathan Stupar to a torn ACL, a source confirmed.

As first reported by NOLA.com, Stupar was injured during punt coverage in the Saints’ 52-38 victory over the Miami Dolphins — a disappointing development for a New Orleans team that has won three straight games to reach 3-2 and climb over .500 for the first time since 2013.

Linebacker depth has become a slight issue for the Saints, who also lost rookie starter Alex Anzalone to injured reserve with a shoulder injury two weeks ago.

Sullivan said in September that he didn’t think predictability was the problem for the Giants.
Authentic Womens New England Patriots Jersey
I think it goes a lot deeper than that, Sullivan said, via Howie Kussoy of the New York Post. I think we’ve certainly looked at the tape and haven’t necessarily had the sense of, ‘Oh man, they certainly had our playbook right here’ or ‘Holy cow, they must have been able to hear what we said on the headsets.’

We haven’t been out there long enough to be predictable.

What does this mean for the Giants? It’s possible that a fresh perspective on the offense will breathe some life into the Giants. It’s also hard for a head coach to manage the big picture aspects of a game and keep focused on calling plays.
Alex Anzalone Youth Jersey
With a porous offensive line, a shaky run game, and so much offensive talent sidelined with injuries, the change probably won’t fully right the ship. But the Giants have problems across the board, and the change may help start to get the offense back on track, which this team desperately needs.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie reinstated by Giants after 1-game suspension

Giants head coach Ben McAdoo reinstated cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Tuesday, after suspending him for leaving the team, the team announced on Tuesday.

Despite all of the reported issues, Landon Collins was supportive of DRC after the game against the Broncos, and said via NJ.com, “My man is coming back Monday.”

“His mindset is he just wants to be out here,” Collins added. “We always have our chant, ‘See ball, get ball.’ He sent us a group message, ‘See ball, go get ball.’ And we all replied back, ‘See ball, get ball.’”

The Giants are coming off a Sunday Night Football win against the Broncos that nobody expected them to win. The Giants went into the game depleted offensively with injuries, missing both Brandon Marshall and Odell Beckham Jr. Yet they were able to come away with an impressive road victory, 20-10.

The Giants will hope to carry the momentum and welcome back Rodgers-Cromartie into Sunday as they welcome Seattle to MetLife Stadium.

Poor air quality has caused high school and youth teams to forgo outdoor activities altogether to protect players from smoke inhalation. Many high school games have already been canceled for this week.

Oakland shortened its practice on Thursday, also, as the EPA has deemed the region’s air quality “unhealthy.” While players are on the field, some are taking extra measures to avoid smoke inhalation.

“We’re seeing the worst air quality ever recorded in many parts of the Bay Area,” Tom Flannigan from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District told the Chronicle. “The entire Bay Area population is likely being affected by the smoke.”

The wildfires have claimed the lives of at least 23 people, while hundreds remain missing. It may disrupt the Raiders’ game preparation routine, but that’s a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme.

Myles Garrett Jersey celebrated his 2nd career sack by paying tribute to J.R. Smith

Myles Garrett is having himself one heck of a first NFL game. He got a sack on his very first play, and then near the end of the first half, got another one.

Markus Wheaton Mens Jersey What she told police: The woman claimed that Elliott attacked her at about 3 a.m. at his apartment after an argument about their unhealthy relationship. She said that Elliott frequently cheated on her and when she told him she had been with another man during one of their breaks, he tried to strike her. The woman had a bruise on her right forearm, which she said happened when she tried to block Elliott from hitting her in the face. (page 11)

Glanton has gotten more time this season with a career high of three starts on the year. The Bucs signed him in 2015 off of the Panthers’ practice squad. Forcing a fumble on Tom Brady’s gotta be the highlight of his career thus far.

It’s a good celebration by Glanton, who was able to fish out that football, amirite?

Sorry, I’m trying to undo the bad joke.

Mens Emmitt Smith Jersey The NFL said Elliott was violent: Two days later, she took photos of herself again and texted them to her mom, confirmed by forensic analysis. The NFL investigation concluded Elliott caused injuries to the woman’s face, arms, wrist and hands. The two medical experts consulted by the NFL’s investigators said the injuries in the photos appear recent and consistent with [the accuser’s] description of the incident and how it occurred.

The Redskins weren’t ready to host the Eagles in Week 1, as Kirk Cousins Jersey got off to his typical slow start.

If not for Kaepernick, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell isn’t signing off on Monday’s joint letter with Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin Jr. asking U.S. Senators to support the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2017.

The Giants have a lot more confidence after that shocker in Denver, where all their wholesale personnel and play-calling changes paid off. They won’t sneak up on Seattle, fresh off a bye and ready to show off a better overall offense. The Seahawks have great success flying this far cross country with Pete Carroll and will put Big Blue back in its place.

Now he’s playing well despite little help from his main pass-catchers or power running game. They’ll perform much better in the rematch, and a red-hot Cousins will keep them in the game through four quarters. The issue for the Redskins’ shorthanded defense, however, will be a hotter Carson Wentz.

When they’re not moving the ball as well they should, it exposes the defense in key situations. That’s why they are suddenly a sub-par team.
Limited Youth Malik McDowell Jersey
The Bears went caretaker and careful with Mitchell Trubisky, something they could afford to do with Jordan Howard and their run-blocking, and it worked in Baltimore. At some point, they need to let the rookie QB loose and let him throw downfield.

Jacoby Brissett has given the offense a shot in the arm and legs, but unfortunately, he can’t make up for all the major defensive deficiencies.

No ‘smoking gun’ in Colin Kaepernick Jersey grievance, but don’t assume he doesn’t have one

Limited Womens Eddie Royal Jersey
Two months ago, back when NFL teams were passing over Colin Kaepernick during the preseason instead of the regular season, winning a collusion case against the league was expected to be an uphill battle, according to one legal expert. Now that a grievance has been filed on Kaepernick’s behalf, that phrase still applies.

Unless, Chicago sports law professor and Sporting News contributor Cari Grieb said, the exiled quarterback has concrete proof he has not yet shown, including in the grievance.

1. Mariota is tough — Mariota’s mobility was limited coming back from an injured hamstring, but he stood in the pocket and was efficient under pressure. He was rusty early with some high throws, while taking some several big hits. As odd as it may seem, he settled down after throwing a pick-six on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. Mariota finished 23 of 32 for 306 yards and a touchdown, delivering a strike for a 53-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Taywan Taylor while getting hit as the Titans took a 29-22 lead with 5:29 remaining.

2. Brissett can be a No. 1 quarterback — Brissett wasn’t quite quick enough to get to the edge as Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard caught him short on a fourth-and-1 at the Titans 13-yard line with 2:19 remaining. He was good in his brief stint with the Patriots last year and has been solid in five starts for the Colts this season. It’s a small sample size, but Brissett will get a chance to be a starter. If not with the Colts, who are tied to Luck for the long-term, then next year.

Authentic Kids Jake Guentzel Jersey 3. Exotic smashmouth is pretty when it works — As the Titans were trying to run out the clock, Derrick Henry burst for a back-breaking 72-yard touchdown run with 47 seconds remaining. Henry finished with 131 yards on 19 carries and DeMarco Murray also grinded out 40 yards on 12 carries as the Titans had success running behind left tackle Taylor Lewan and right guard Josh Kline, who had a pancake block while pulling on Henry’s late touchdown run.

The absence of fanfare is just fine with both Rose and Wade.

“Most guys in my position don’t get drafted to such a high-caliber team like the Celtics, so it makes me work harder because I have to compete and earn everything,” he said.

As he talks, Tatum’s eyes are glued to Brown, who has returned to the floor for some shots following their one-on-one battles. The two were fast friends this summer, especially having already crossed paths during their high school days. Brown knows all about what Tatum is about to experience and is eager to help him along the way.

Brown, after riding the rookie roller coaster a year ago, is competing for a starting job this season. He speaks with a wisdom well beyond his mere 20 years, and that’s reflected when he calls Tatum “Kid” while praising the way Tatum approaches the game.

Dorsey was part of the package sent by San Francisco to Cleveland for quarterback Trent Dilfer in the 2006 offseason.

“[Rose] came in with no ego at all, just saying, ‘Coach, whatever you need me to do, and if you yell at me, cuss at me,'” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “I said, ‘I don’t do all that.’ But he said, ‘Whatever it is I can take it. Whatever you need me to do, I’m willing to do.’ And D-Wade has been pretty much the same. Coming in and knowing it’s about sacrifice. If you want to win a championship and have a chance to win a championship, you have to sacrifice. They understand that.”

Dwyane Wade secures Cleveland’s final starting roster spot, reuniting him with LeBron James in the starting lineup. The last time they linked up in that fashion, the pair, playing for Miami, made it to four straight Finals.

Derrick Rose admits that his mental approach in the past — not just his physical ailments — started to lead his career astray and says he is determined to get back on track with the Cleveland Cavaliers.ravens_008

Former Saints Super Bowl hero Tracy Porter Jersey arrested on drug, battery charges

Former Saints safety Tracy Porter, famous for a game-clinching interception and return for touchdown against the Colts in Super Bowl 44, was arrested Tuesday on drug and battery charges after a woman claimed he attacked her last week.
Game Shaq Lawson Jersey
According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, the woman said Porter became physical with her during an argument in which he allegedly pushed her against a car and grabbed her around the face and neck, WWL TV reported.

I ran faster than that in college, Fournette, who played at LSU, told ESPN. It’s all about getting my legs back under me. … I ran, like, 23 mph in college, so [I’m] just trying to get my old speed back.
Game Myles Jack Jersey
On top of the speedy touchdown, Fournette tacked on another score and recorded 181 total yards in the Jaguars’ 30-9 upset win in Pittsburgh.

Fournette, who is 6-foot-1 and 228 pounds, ran a 4.51 at the NFL combine this past year. Usain Bolt, who many consider the world’s fastest man, ran at a speed of 27.7 mph during his world-record 100-meter sprint in 2009.

The Eagles went three-and-out and punted before the two-minute warning, but the Philadelphia defense held on the ensuing drive.

Newton, who was brilliant the last two weeks in road wins over the Patriots and Lions, was 28 of 52 for 239 yards with a touchdown and the three interceptions. He also ran for 71 yards and a touchdown as Panthers running backs Jonathan Stewart, Fozzy Whittaker and Christian McCaffrey combined for just one rushing yard on 13 carries. McCaffrey did have 10 receptions for 56 yards, but a fourth-and-1 pass with 1:22 remaining skipped into him at midfield.
