Week 4: A small silver lining in 49ers-Chiefs

Juice Check San Francisco 49ers Hoodie , Jimmy Garoppolo is out for the year, joining RB Jerick McKinnon, and all is gloom among the 49ers faithful.However, one pillar of Kyle Shanahan’s scheme stood tall Sunday.Kyle Juszczyk showed the full range of his value, from catching the team’s only first half touchdown to steady work behind the running game — which will be all the more important with C.J. Beathard in at QB. Say what you will about his passing and ability to read defenses, but Beathard’s hand-offs are not a big drop from Garoppolo’s.Juice’s role in this offense has increased every game this year. He was in for fully 53 of 68 offensive plays Sunday, plus his usual role on punt coverage. Part of that reflects Kyle Shanahan’s surprising — and surprisingly successful — strategy of coming back from a big deficit with long, grinding run-based drives. Juice showed his value in the…Continue

The 49ers have several quarterbacks working

out for them Tuesday as they attempt to fill the roster spot left by Jimmy Garoppolo. The list does not include Colin Kaepernick. Coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers have had no internal discussions about the team’s former starting quarterback after discussing him last year as they searched for a solution to the position.鈥淚 made that decision [to not pursue Kaepernick] because of the style of offense we wanted to go with Cheap Fred Warner Jersey ,鈥?Shanahan said, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 kind of what I said last year.

Fantasy Football: Waiver wire targets for Week 2

You won your fantasy football matchup? Good for you. You lost? That’s ok , it’s only Week 1. Either way, it’s never too early to try to improve your team. Here’s a few players to look for on the waiver wire this week and some reasons why:Phillip Lindsay, RB, Denver BroncosRostered: Yahoo: 4%, ESPN: 1.9%Lindsay, surprisingly, played just three fewer snaps than starter Royce Freeman. He got the same amount of carries (15) and yards (71) as Freeman, too. Add in the two receptions Lindsay had for 31 yards and he out-touched Freeman in the game. Split running back by committees are typically a nightmare for fantasy purposes — and right now that looks to be Linsday’s ceiling — but getting than much run is something that deserves notice. Denver is home against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2,…Continue

 having to do with the 1-5 teams that have been discussed often in recent weeks.One was wide receiver Odell Beckham‘s ESPN interview and Mara took the stance that he’d prefer Beckham “do a little more playing and a little less talking.” The other was quarterback Eli Manning‘s play so far in the 2018 season.Many have seen Manning’s play as a continuation of the struggles of recent seasons and confirmation that the team should have done more to find an alternative option for the 2018 season. Mara was steadfast about Manning being the right choice to run the offense all offseason and hasn’t changed his tune despite the generally horrid results thus far.“We still believe in him Youth Customized New York Giants Jerseys , but everybody needs to do their jobs in order for us to be successful, and right now that鈥檚 not happening … I know he鈥檚 the punching bag right now, but a…Continue

Pro Football Focus believes the Giants’ offensive

 line is trending up If there is one area where the New York Giants want — need Color Rush Patrick Omameh Jersey , really — to see a tangible improvement in 2018 over 2017, it is on the offensive line. That was why Dave Gettleman completely tore down and rebuilt the offensive line this past offseason. The Giants made Nate Solder the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL (at the time), signed Patrick Omameh to a 3-year, $15 million ($10 million guaranteed) contract, and drafted Will Hernandez at the top of the second round in the 2018 NFL draft.So far we only have small sample sizes in preseason games, but advanced analytics service Pro Football Focus believes that the Giants’ offensive line is trending in the right direction.According to PFF’s grading system, Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, Jon Halapio, and Ereck Flowers all improved from their first performance…Continue

Yarcho’s Pick Six: Whupped In The Windy City

 That was horrific. No excuses Youth Adam Humphries Jersey , no justifications. Absolutely, unequivocally pathetic. The NFL’s number one offense was completely shut down while the 31st ranked defense made Mitchell Trubisky have the best game of his career - past or future. No way Trubisky ever plays this well again. Ever.After starting 2-0 the Bucs have lost their last two by a combined score of 78-37. At the end of the day, it’s inexcusable. It’s indefensible. It’s sickening.Let’s pick six.Six Topics Suitable For Conversation1.) Mike Smith Has To Go - Some may view this as an overreaction, but look at the track record. One of the NFL’s worst defenses under Smith in 2017 and so far through 2018, there is no justification in keeping Smith around. Even if promoting Brentson Buckner in an interim role proves that he isn’t the guy, the defense can’t possibly get any…Continue

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears are both

on byes Peyton Barber Jersey , so there’s no fantasy football wave to try and ride against the Bucs defense or by rolling with quarterback, Mitch Trubisky.Week 4 of the NFL brought a lot of fun as usual, but we saw guys like the aforementioned Chicago quarterback rise to the top of the fantasy stats like never before.So, how did our own projections do?QUARTERBACK (0/3): Ouch. We took some chances, and unfortunately they just didn’t pay off. It always seems Philip Rivers will disappoint when you start to count on him, and while he did come in at QB14, it’s not starting position scoring. Derek Carr responded to his first benching of the season by putting up QB4 numbers and 32-points. Eli Manning is the eternal sleeper, and he just didn’t wake up this past weekend as he failed to crack the Top-20.RUNNING BACK (3/3): A little bit of redemption with this group. Ezekiel Elliott…Continue
