ball where I need to put it, Friedrich said after Saturd from jcy123's blog

Week 8 has six teams with players on vacation -- Dolphins, 49ers, Steelers, Rams, Ravens, and Giants have byes -- which means slim pickings come Sunday. Chuck Bednarik Womens Jersey .Plus, injuries heading into Week 8:RB C.J. Anderson -- knee (Devontae Booker will start for Denver)RB Lamar Miller -- shoulderRB LeSean McCoy -- hammyRB Matt Forte -- kneeRB Doug Martin -- hammyRB Matt Jones -- knee (Rob Kelly projected to start for Washington)WR Julian Edelman -- footWR Michael Floyd -- hammyWR T.Y. Hilton -- hipTE Jimmy Graham -- kneeOther news and notes:QB Dak Prescott is expected to start weeks 8 and 9 for Dallas.QB Josh McCown is expected to start for Cleveland Sunday.WR Golden Tate will be the focal point of Detroits offense moving forward.RB Jay Ajayis workload is to somewhat diminish with Miami.RB Latavius Murray will get the bulk of the carries for Oakland moving forward.LOCKSQB Russell Wilson @ New OrleansWilson has been battling injury, no denying that, and his fantasy numbers indicate it. However, Week 8 he has a very favorable matchup against the 30th-ranked Saints secondary. Considering his arm isnt injured, Wilson is a top 3 fantasy QB on Sunday. New Orleans has given up the eighth most fantasy points to gunslingers this season.(Others: Carson Palmer @ Carolina)WR Mike Evans vs. OaklandEvans was targeted 13 times last week and put up 96 yards and 2 touchdowns against the 49ers. He has been a target monster this season! Up next, the Raiders secondary, which has given up the fifth most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2016. Expect a huge day from Evans.(Others: Brandon Marshall @ Cleveland, Amari Cooper @ Tampa Bay, Larry Fitzgerald @ Carolina, Randall Cobb @ Atlanta)RB Devonta Freeman @ Green BayTevin Coleman is expected to be inactive in Week 8, which means Freeman will get the workload for the Falcons. Green Bays rush defense is top notch, despite the 157 yards the Packers gave up to Ezekiel Elliot last week, but Freemans receiving threat makes him a top 12 RB in fantasy this week.(Others: Spencer Ware @ Indianapolis, Christine Michael @ New Orleans)TE Gary Barnidge vs. New York JetsThe last few weeks Barnidge has become a larger part of the Browns offense. This week, Cleveland hosts the Jets, which have allowed the ninth most fantasy points per game to tight ends. Josh McCown is expected back at quarterback for the Browns on Sunday, which is great news for Barnidge owners.(Others: Jimmy Graham @ New Orleans)FLOPSQB Philip Rivers @ DenverThe Broncos are relentless against quarterbacks this season -- they pressure opposing passers more than any team in the NFL. Rivers was held to only 11 fantasy points in Week 6 by the Broncos, and they have given up the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.WR Alshon Jeffery vs. MinnesotaJeffery has been one of the biggest disappointments this fantasy season, and now he has to suffer further with Jay Cutler back at the helm for the Bears. To make matters worse, Chicago faces the Vikings, which have allowed only three touchdown catches to wideouts this year. Minnesota has given up the second fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season.RB Matt Asiata @ ChicagoJerrick McKinnon is not expected to play Sunday, which means Asiata will be the primary back for the Vikings. Asiata would face a Bears defense that ranks 17th against the run this season, and has given up the fourth fewest points against ball carriers in 2016.TE Coby Fleener vs. SeattleFleener has a tough matchup on Sunday against a Seahawks defense that doesnt allow tight ends to put up many yards. In fact, Seattle has given up the eighth fewest fantasy points to tight ends.SLEEPERSQB Jameis Winston vs. OaklandWinston has some very nice matchups the next few weeks, and it starts Sunday against the Raiders secondary, which has been one of the friendliest to opposing quarterbacks. Oakland has given up the sixth most fantasy points to gunslingers this season. Winston is a top 5 QB in my book on Sunday.(Honorable mention: Alex Smith @ Indianapolis)WR Ty Montgomery @ AtlantaMontgomery is a slash player now at Lambeau and at ESPN Fantasy -- he can be used as a WR and RB moving forward. Last week he was the Packers every-down RB, with nine carries for 60 yards and 10 receptions for 66 yards. This week, he faces the Falcons, which have allowed the second most receptions to running backs this year, making Montgomery a must-start in fantasy.(Honorable mentions:?Stefon Diggs @ Chicago, Terrelle Pryor vs. New York Jets, Quincy Enunwa @ Cleveland, Golden Tate @ Houston)RB Devontae Booker vs. San DiegoC.J. Anderson will be on the shelf this week, and Booker will get the start for the Broncos. Booker scored his first career touchdown in Week 7 and hopes that trend continues. His matchup is favorable, considering the Chargers have given up the fourth most fantasy points to running backs this season. If you grabbed Booker off the waiver wire last week, great job!(Honorable mentions: Jacquizz Rodgers vs. Oak, Ty Montgomery @ Atlanta)TE Jack Doyle vs. Kansas CityDwayne Allen has been dealing with injuries, so Doyle has become a fantasy football household name. Doyle is getting a nice target share each week from Andrew Luck, which makes him a sleeper play this week against the Chiefs.(Honorable mention: Cameron Brate?vs. Oakland)Good luck in Week 8! Brian Westbrook Eagles Jersey Seth Joyner Jersey . Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. . NBA officials ruled the court unplayable in the Bucks final exhibition game on Oct. 25 because players were slipping, and the game was cancelled midway through the first period. SAN DIEGO -- In sports, wreaking havoc is a term more reserved for outside linebackers who crush running backs and sack quarterbacks.But Padres manager Andy Green recently said wreaking havoc is exactly what 185-pound center fielder Travis Jankowski is doing these days.Travis is dynamic right now, Green continued in his assessment of the very fast, 25-year-old Jankowski after his three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers.Jankowski was 6-for-11 against the Brewers with four infield hits and a double. He also drew three walks. And Jankowski was just getting started when he reached base. He stole five bases in the three games, including a steal of home, and made two exception catches in center.Since getting a chance to start every day with the arm fracture that sidelined Jon Jay on June 28 and the July 24 trade that dispatched Melvin Upton Jr. to Toronto, Jankowski has become a force as the Padres lead-off hitter.Padres fans, who have seen many of the clubs leading players move on, have become enamored with the 6-foot-2 speedster with the flowing golden locks and perpetually dirty uniform.Hes making the most of his chance to play, Green said. Hes jump-started us with the excitement he brings to the top of the order. Hell do anything he can to get on base. And once on base, hes an instant threat to be on second or third.Jankowski will again be at the top of order Friday night as the Padres face Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson of the Philadelphia Phillies in the opener of a three-game series at Petco Park.Yes, Heellickson is still with the Phillies. Custom Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys. For weeks before the trading deadline, rumors swirled that the 29-year-old right-hander would be traded -- even though a hand injury in the days leading up to the deadline clouded the issue.But the Phillies decided to hold onto Hellickson, who is 8-7 with a 3.70 ERA in 22 starts entering Friday nights matchup with Padres left-hander Christian Friedrich (4-6, 4.72 ERA).Phillies general manager Matt Klentak decided having a veteran on a young staff was better than acquiring another prospect.Theres a huge value in having a veteran starter who can give us six and seven innings every start on a staff of young pitchers, said Klentak of Hellicksons value as the trading deadline passed Monday.Im glad to still be with the Phillies, Hellickson said. I want to stay a part of this.Friedrich, meanwhile, is coming off his best start since the All-Star break. He held the Cincinnati Reds to one run on five hits and a walk over six innings Saturday night at Petco Park. In his previous seven starts, Friedrich was 1-5 with a 7.86 ERA while pitching into the sixth inning only twice.The secret for me is to put the ball where I need to put it, Friedrich said after Saturdays outing against the Reds.I like Friedrich, Green said. Hes an extremely competitive person. He knows what he has to do to get people out. And when he struggles, he doesnt panic. He remains focused. ' ' '
