Fantasy spring training notes: All-in on Lance Lynn?

He said with no featured sets, it can still lead to a night like he had against the LA Clippers on Friday, when he had 15 points on 6 for 15 shooting. Then he added, It can go like that or it can go like the Laker game.

Smith didn’t know if the change was a direct reaction to his poor night against the Lakers.

My performance has been steady — it has not been great, it’s been a lot of bad shooting nights — so it’s been a pretty steady pace, Smith said.

When asked again about the timing of the change, Lue was tight-lipped.

I decided to do it today, Lue said. Next question.

The teams then traded goals early in the third, with Meier scoring on the power play when he deflected a shot from Mikkel Boedker and Zetterberg answering for Detroit off a nice pass from Nyquist.

That goal moved Zetterberg into sole possession of fifth place for the Red Wings with his 336th, breaking a tie with Ted Lindsay.

Ted means a lot to me, so passing him and doing it in this building too where I played my first NHL game is really special, Zetterberg said.

We need to understand there is a certain type of game that’s being played right now, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. We’ve given the opposition too many gifts. Those are mental breakdowns that have to be corrected.

He confirmed the deal in an Instagram post Monday.

IM BACK?? I would like to thank the entire @seahawks organization from Paul Allen to John Schneider and Pete Carrol for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to continue living out my dream. Finally thank you to the city of Seattle for accepting me with open arms. It’s time to get back on TOP!

“People don’t understand, I was still hurt with my Achilles injury, so now I’m Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal finally healthy. I was able to really just revamp my whole self, just Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys focus on basketball and be able to just work out. So when I was in China, I just felt like I was at Oak Hill [Academy] again, just working on my game and trying to get to that level again.”

Sam Bradford’s night ends as Case Keenum enters the game.

Every scene Gerald McCoy touches turns to gold. He wears socks bearing the likenesses of pro wrestlers. He wears Incredible Hulk cleats. When Ed Hochuli comes to Bucs camp to clarify the rule changes to celebrations, McCoy breaks down the intricacies of what is and is not sexual. There is an entire montage dedicated to his excellence on the field. He hilariously riffs on the customer service at Chik-Fil-A. He has a superhero-themed man cave that depicts him as Football Batman.

McCoy already has the accolades: five Pro Bowls, three first-team All-Pro selections. But he deserves ad campaigns and the adoration of casual fans. This recap is conflicted on Jameis Winston but an unapologetic cheerleader for Gerald McCoy.

Sam Bradford’s night ends as Case Keenum enters the game. Bradford was efficient enough, completing 7 of 11 passes for 95 yards and not turning the ball over. Keenum did just enough to lead the Vikings on a field goal drive near the end of the first half.

Kasen Williams almost had another highlight play, but a sure touchdown went right through his hands. Fortunately for Seattle, Chris Carson made a crucial first down on a swing pass, bailing out Wilson under pressure. Mike Davis entered at running back and scored the second touchdown of the game, a 22-yard catch-and-run.

Minnesota’s defense had no coverage on Davis, who ran in nearly untouched out of the flat.

Darren McFadden is the direct backup, with Alfred Morris and Rod Smith also in the mix. Meanwhile, the Rams pulled off a stunning trade Friday, acquiring Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills and giving Jared Goff a legitimate No. 1 receiver. Watkins reunites with former Bills teammate Robert Woods, both of whom will likely hang out on the bench all night.

Let’s guess Aaron Rodgers’ favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ character

Aaron Rodgers is giving away four free tickets to the Green Bay Packers preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. But to win the tickets, Packers fans have a riddle to solve.

First, Packers fans have to know which restaurant in the Green Bay area is Rodgers’ favorite. Then, they have to guess the quarterback’s favorite character on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

No part of this thought process makes any sense to me. If you were going to propose to someone at a sports game, wouldn’t you think to do it at a real sports game? And if so, don’t make it a Dolphins game! And if you do do it at a Dolphins game, make sure Jay Cutler isn’t there, because he’ll look super sad when he finds out about it even if he’s happy!

Here’s my official stance on marriage proposals, as previously stated:

I am anti-public proposal because asking someone to marry you seems like a very intimate moment (though I don’t know that for sure, because I have not been formally proposed to) and I can’t understand why you’d want to share that with a whole bunch of strangers.

Pretty simple stuff, right? Doesn’t leave a whole lot of wiggle room. The only caveats I granted were that if you must propose at a sporting event like, if it’s written in your dead grandmother’s will that if you don’t, your entire family will get boils, or you’ll have to Instagram your smoothie for a week that you have to be sure the person you’re proposing to will say yes. Because if you think there’s even a chance they’ll swat the ring out of your hand and sprint away, you shouldn’t ask to tether yourself to them forever on a jumbotron.

The Rams’ long-term plan is to find out if Jared Goff is good

The Los Angeles Rams aren’t likely to be a Super Bowl contender in 2017, but the team could be a legitimate threat quickly if Jared Goff plays like a No. 1 overall draft pick.

That’s why the Rams have made an effort to provide him with as many tools as possible. That continued Friday when the Rams traded away cornerback E.J. Gaines and a second-round pick to acquire wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick.

Watkins joins a roster that also includes another former Bills receiver, Robert Woods, who was signed in free agency. The Rams also drafted tight end Gerald Everett with its first selection and the team selected receivers Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds with two of its next three picks.

Los Angeles also added 35-year-old Andrew Whitworth up front to help protect Goff. The focus for the Rams this offseason has been to maximize the potential that made the team pick Goff in the first place.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receiver Antonio Brown will continue to sit, and Le’Veon Bell is still holding out. The Falcons’ own superstar receiver, Julio Jones, won’t play either. Recently extended running back Devonta Freeman is out as well due to a concussion.

Just months after graduating from the University of Tennessee, Dobbs was an NFL starting quarterback. Kind of.

The rookie earned his team’s top spot behind center in Pittsburgh’s preseason opener after Roethlisberger decided to rest his eternally hobbled 35-year-old body. Backup Landry Jones might play, but Dobbs earns the start against Atlanta. The first-year passer led his team to a preseason win last week, but also threw a pair of interceptions and needed 15 passes to accumulate just 100 yards in a touch debut.

The Titans can hang their hat on a pretty solid defensive performance

Unrelated soccer fashion take: the Sounders’ Pacific Blue jersey would be the best in MLS if they didn’t mess with the color of their crest.
Later, backup quarterback Ryan Griffin took a hard hit from a Cincinnati defender and left the game with a shoulder injury. Winston walked over to some offensive linemen, leaned in, and calmly told them I’m happy y’all are having fun, but Ryan just hurt his shoulder. He started to walk away. But keep having fun.

The picture of Winston, through two episodes, is of a quarterback quick to laugh, willing to admit his mistakes, and dedicated to something he takes seriously. As a viewer who entered the series critical of Winston’s past, I definitely feel like a sucker for buying into what I’ve seen. On the other hand, it’s a testament to how well the show is made.

Hackenberg played most of the game for the Jets, but leaned heavily on check downs. He finished 18-of-25 passing for 127 yards. Reminder: McCown had 72 passing yards on four attempts.

The Titans can hang their hat on a pretty solid defensive performance, with the exception of the first drive. There really aren’t many positives to take from the offensive showing.

Gerald Everett is already showing why the Rams thought highly enough of him to draft him in the second round. He has just two receptions for 12 yards, but he’s shown some athleticism and a nice gain on a crossing route was nullified by a holding penalty.

Kellen Moore couldn’t get the Cowboys in the end zone, but Cooper Rush dropped one right in the bread basket.

Beast Mode may not be playing, but he’s going to capture headlines anyway after it was revealed he sat during the playing of the national anthem before the game. He joins a lengthy list of players who followed in Colin Kaepernick’s footsteps with the protest.

If you have to propose on a jumbotron, at least do it at a Dolphins preseason game

I once wrote that under no circumstances should a human ever propose marriage to another human at a sporting event. I probably didn’t go far enough. I don’t think dogs should propose to other dogs at stadiums either, nor should fish propose to fish, bears to bears, robots to robots, or any other thing that could possibly become sentient enough to tether itself to any other thing ’til death do it part.

Ngata (6x), Seymour (5x), Williams (5x), Wilfork (4x), Jenkins (3x), Smith (3x), Haynesworth (2x), and Campbell (2x) are the only defensive tackles that started their careers from 2000-09 to earn multiple All Pro nods during their careers; compare that to the seven players from the 2010-present with multiple All Pros on their resume (Watt, Suh, McCoy, Atkins, Donald, Wilkerson, Cox) and those that are likely to earn their second in the coming years (Harrison, Short, Dareus) and the quality difference is pretty apparent.

All Pro nods aren’t a perfect measure of a player’s contributions on the field, but it’s certainly a reasonable measure of a player’s chances of making the Hall of Fame; the same people that vote for one are voting for the other, and they would all likely consider the top defensive tackles from 2000-09 to come up short in comparison to those from 2010-present- and it’s hard enough for a defensive tackle to reach the Hall of Fame.

If I were a Hall of Fame judge, I would argue that Wilfork joins Seymour, Williams, Ngata, and Smith as the top five defensive tackles of the generation. I would also argue that he should be in the top three of that group with Seymour and Williams- but I don’t know if that would be enough to warrant him a selection into the Hall of Fame.

Bortles is dragging down a good roster

It’s tough to gauge what exactly McCarron could bring to the table. But a second-round draft pick isn’t much to acquire a potential upgrade at quarterback and a 26-year-old who could try to prove he’s a long-term solution for the team.

The same argument could be made for other young backups, including the Packers’ Brett Hundley, who was reportedly on the trade block during the 2017 NFL draft.

Finding other potential starting talent on the trade market can be hard to forecast (who in the world saw the Sam Bradford trade coming last year?), but the Jaguars have to be aggressive if one comes available.

Bortles is dragging down a good roster, and the Jaguars are just being silly at this point if they don’t look elsewhere.

Just before he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last week, Jones said he wasn’t expecting a suspension for Elliott.

One of the final steps of the investigation came in May, when the NFLPA handed over Elliott’s phone records and other documents to the league. Elliott met with league investigators last October and with NFL officials earlier this month, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The first violation of the league’s personal conduct policy carries a six-game suspension, but the suspension can be reduced for mitigating circumstances.

Elliott tweeted a statement from his personal account after the suspension was handed down, saying he disagreed with the NFL’s decision while also apologizing to fans:

Elliott played college football for three seasons at Ohio State. He was selected by the Cowboys with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. Elliott led the league with 1,631 rushing yards in his rookie season.

Elliott can participate in all preseason activities. His suspension will begin Sept. 2 and he can return to the Cowboys’ roster on Monday, Oct. 23.

Ezekiel Elliott suspended for 6 games following NFL domestic violence investigation

The NFL announced Friday it has suspended Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games to start the 2017 season. The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Four days later, Elliott officially filed an appeal of the punishment.

Elliott’s appeal won’t be heard by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, but Harold Henderson instead. The former NFL executive vice president has previously heard appeals from Greg Hardy and Adrian Peterson, and will hear Elliott’s on Aug. 29.

The NFL’s findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it ‘cherry picks’ so called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence, Elliott’s representatives wrote in a statement shortly after the suspension was announced.

The Browns, as is tradition, will host their annual quarterback competition on Thursday as well. This fall, the top spot will be a battle between Cody Kessler the lone returnee of the team’s five passers to earn snaps in 2016 Brock Osweiler, and DeShone Kizer.

At least one unquestioned starter will be taking snaps behind center Thursday. Carson Wentz will play at least one series for the Eagles.

The Jaguars and Patriots have been practicing together in Foxborough in advance of their matchup Thursday. That led to a handful of ridiculous Brandin Cooks highlights and a messy Blake Bortles performance the quarterback, sadly, could not attribute to jet lag. They’ll get the chance to elevate their scrimmage to meet the high standards of the NFL preseason at Gillette Stadium.
