Saints’ Alvin Kamara emerging as prime fantasy football sleeper

The summer months are officially underway, which means fantasy football drafts are just around the corner.

Fantasy football can be as fickle as it is exciting because of positional uncertainty. Drafting running backs has become a difficult endeavor with so many teams implementing a multi-back backfield.

No, the Bills’ new regime has not expressed an obvious, long-term commitment to Taylor. But the 27-year-old QB’s status in Buffalo is clear at least for 2017.

Dennison, beyond his history working with Taylor as quarterbacks coach in Baltimore, is known for his implementation of West Coast Offense principles — “nickel-and-dime” passing, routes based on timing, ball control, QB options and field-stretching deep throws. Taylor’s last Cheap Jerseys And Hats two coordinators, Greg Roman and Anthony Lynn, utilized similar schemes.

In theory, Taylor’s skill set fits perfectly. He’s able to both burn defenses with shots downfield and keep defenders honest with his feet. Dennison has nine years of NFL offensive coordinator experience, and QBs in those nine years have combined to average 7.2 yards per attempt. Taylor’s Cheap Jerseys China career average is 7.4, so don’t expect him to be coached out of his comfort zone.

It’s on Taylor to continue to develop in his third year as a starter, which would have been the case regardless of who was hired to coach him. If he fails to do so, Cardale Jones and rookie Nathan Peterman (and, sure, T.J. Yates, whom Dennison coached in Houston) will be waiting to pounce on a possible opportunity.

The Dodgers continue to groove.

LA pushed its winning streak to 10 on Sunday with a 12-6 win over the Rockies, thanks — again — to some dingers from rookie Cody Bellinger. The young Bellinger is on a historic Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys homer pace for rookies, with his two Sunday bringing his NL-leading season total to 24. This is just one reason why fans are willing to forgive him for not knowing who Jerry Seinfeld is.

Here are the winners and losers of the 2017 NBA Draft:

Timberwolves — Minnesota could have gone the entire night without drafting a player and still would have come out on top Thursday night. Why? Because they stole Jimmy Butler out from Cleveland and Boston’s clutches, providing the franchise with a veteran leader to go with a plethora of young stars.

Minnesota also selected Creighton center/power forward Justin Patton with the No. 16 pick. Patton is a high-upside guy that could develop into the team’s starting power forward.

No one is going to topple the Warriors in the Western Conference any time soon, but the Timberwolves took a huge step in the right direction.

A’s slugger Ryon Healy went 3 for 4 with two home runs off Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys of Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka as Oakland handed New York their fifth straight loss with a 5-2 victory. Healy is now hitting .288 on the season with 17 home runs and 42 RBIs.

While Schoop was great Saturday, Wainwright was flat out terrible as he has been in his last three games. He lasted just 1 2/3 innings Saturday giving up seven hits (three of which were homers) a walk and nine earned runs. In his last three starts Wainwright has given up 20 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings of work.

Miami held on to win the game by the same score.

Ellis reached first base. The Marlins then had some trouble defensively, and Scherzer walked out of the eighth inning losing 2-1 while allowing just two hits and two unearned runs.

Miami held on to win the game by the same score.

Scherzer, who took the tough-luck loss, dropped down to 8-5 this season Cheap Ireland Jerseys with a 2.09 ERA despite striking out 11 Marlins. The reigning NL Cy Young award winner looks like a major threat to repeat.

The Nationals hold a commanding lead in the NL East, yet they still lose an alarming amount of close games. Most of their problems can be attributed to a shaky bullpen. It will be important for Washington to address that issue before the July 31 trade deadline.

When Reggie McKenzie first came to Oakland in 2012, the Raiders cut Stanford Routt, Kamerion Wimbley, and John Henderson. The team also renegotiated the contracts of Richard Seymour, Carson Palmer, and Michael Huff, clearing cap space and making all three easy to part with in 2013.

Oakland went 4-12 in 2012 and managed just seven more wins in the next two seasons of the McKenzie era, before finally improving and coming away with 19 wins in the last two.

The Jaguars and Browns are still floundering and hoping years of futility are going to yield results soon.

Losing helped all of those franchises net early draft picks, but losing wasn’t the goal. And even though New York’s recent roster moves undoubtedly make the team worse in 2017, it frees up cap space and open room for younger players to compete and be potential stars of the Jets’ future.

The Jets are adamant that they’re not tanking.

“None of us on the team think that we’re going to tank,” running Cheap Jerseys America back Matt Forte, one of the few players over 30, told the Associated Press. “So all I have to say about that is: Bring it.”
