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. Nike Air Max 90 Grey .Did you draft Jeremy Langford or Antonio Gates and need replacement options for this week in fantasy football? Or are you still waiting on Tom Brady to return from suspension? We have some choice names to consider for those seeking widely available options at each position.QuarterbackJoe Flacco, Baltimore RavensAlthough my recommendation of Joe Flacco wasnt a huge win last week, you should know that I am purposefully pulling my recommendations from players who are owned in less than 20 percent of leagues. Among those players, Flacco was pretty solid, but Trevor Siemian would have been a better play. However, it just wouldnt have been prudent to recommend a quarterback off waivers going against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ill stick with Flacco again this week, as he faces an Oakland Raiders defense that allowed the opposing quarterback to score at least 27 fantasy points in two of its three games this season. Expect a solid game from Flacco, as the Ravens still havent demonstrated they can effectively run the ball and will need to rely on Flaccos right arm. -K.D.Andy Dalton, Cincinnati BengalsWhile Dalton is rostered in nearly 63 percent of ESPN leagues as of press time, its telling to see hes been started in just 9.7 percent of leagues, the lowest rate among the top 20 quarterbacks in ownership in ESPN leagues (not counting the suspended Brady). It would be wise to get Dalton in starting lineups this week, however, as the Miami Dolphins exploitable defense comes to town. The Dolphins rank 21st in Football Outsiders DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average) and 26th in pass coverage without a cornerback graded in the top 60 at the position on Pro Football Focus. Not counting the Week 14 game that saw him exit early with a fractured thumb, Dalton produced at least 17 fantasy points in 10 of 12 games last season. With a touchdown on just 1.7 percent of his pass attempts this season -- ranked 31st among quarterbacks -- after ranking fourth in the league in touchdown percentage in 2015 (6.5 percent), a positive correction is coming for Dalton, and it could begin Thursday night. -J.M.Running backJordan Howard, Chicago BearsIf you play in a league with me, Howard hasnt been available since the draft. In almost all others, hes readily available, but will become the most added player in the NFL this week. Howard has all the tools to be a successful three-down back, and this weeks contest against the Detroit Lions will be his coming-out party. The Lions have allowed over 5 yards per carry to opposing running backs and have allowed the third-highest number of receptions to them as well. With Jeremy Langford likely sidelined, look for Howard to see upward of 20 touches as he lays claim to the starting job in Chicago going forward. -K.D.Matt Jones, Washington RedskinsNot only does Jones grade out favorably in some advanced metrics, such as ranking seventh among backs in elusive rating on Pro Football Focus -- a measure of forced missed tackles per touch -- he also has produced 66.1 percent of his teams rushing yardage and has consumed six of the Washington backfields eight carries in the red zone so far this season. The Browns have ceded 16.3 fantasy points to opposing backfields this season and a generous 2.82 yards before contact per rush, eighth most in the league. Jones has been deployed as a starter just 31 percent of the time this season in ESPN leagues but, like Dalton, merits a spot in lineups this week as a strong streaming option. -J.M.Wide receiverJamison Crowder, Washington RedskinsCrowder has seen at least seven targets in every game this season. Going into Monday nights game, only 24 wide receivers can claim at least the same level of usage each week. With a game coming this weekend against the Cleveland Browns, Crowder is a must-start, as the Browns have surrendered two touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in each of their first three games, which leaves plenty of upside for Crowder. -K.D.Terrelle Pryor, Cleveland BrownsIn a game reminiscent of a Friday night high school showdown, Pryor earned snaps at quarterback, running back, receiver and even safety in Week 3. With 144 receiving yards, 21 rushing yards and 35 passing yards, Pryor became the first player with at least 120 receiving yards, 20 rushing yards and 30 passing yards since Frank Gifford in 1959, per ESPN Stats & Info. With such valuable versatility on this side and facing a Washington secondary missing a key coverage component in safety DeAngelo Hall, Pryor is well positioned to provide a high total-yardage floor in the capital Sunday afternoon. -J.M.Tight endClive Walford, Oakland RaidersWhen looking at tight ends with ownership percentages of 20 or lower who might be usable, the pickings are slim. Although he faces a Ravens defense that has surrendered just 10 fantasy points to opposing tight ends in three games, Walford earns my endorsement this week. Walford has been targeted 15 times so far this season, converting 13 of them into catches, and has become a reliable option for Derek Carr. If Walford is targeted five times, you could find yourself with 50 receiving yards and a potential touchdown, which is good upside for a tight end lottery ticket. -K.D.Hunter Henry, San Diego ChargersAntonio Gates is ailing with a serious hamstring injury and, according to reports, is unlikely to be available this week for a choice setup with the Saints. Henry is a talented rookie tight end who isnt tasked with many snaps in the blocking phase, as he was second on the team in routes run in Week 3 and finished with the second-most yards on the team, having caught all five of his targets in the loss to the Colts. Available in more than 90 percent of ESPN leagues and with a valuable target share in a potential shootout in San Diego this Sunday, Henry is an ideal streaming asset at a shallow position. -J.M.D/STDallas CowboysDespite earning just nine fantasy points in the first three weeks, the Cowboys D/ST is an intriguing option this week. The Cowboys go on the road to face a San Francisco 49ers team that has been uneven so far this season. The 49ers have committed at least one turnover in each game this season and arent anything close to an offensive juggernaut, which combines to make the Cowboys D/ST a safe bet for a positive point total. -K.D.Washington RedskinsDefenses facing the Browns have averaged 8.3 fantasy points per game this season, well above the league average of 5.8 points so far in 2016. The Redskins have blitzed opposing passers on 26.5 percent of dropbacks, also above league average, and could thrive in facing the Browns conservative passing scheme, led by a raw rookie in Cody Kessler. Its a bit of a bold tandem of susceptible NFC East defenses that Ken and I have selected this week, but in the spirit of selecting widely available streaming options, both qualify with plus matchups against exploitable respective foes. -J.M.Individual defensive playersLinebackerCraig Robertson, New Orleans SaintsWith a career best of 92 total tackles for the Browns in 2014, this undrafted veteran out of North Texas is currently leading the NFL in tackles and is second among linebackers in fantasy points using ESPNs IDP scoring model. Fueling such statistical success has been a career-best 96.3 percent snap rate while ranking fifth in the league in total snaps among linebackers. The Saints defense is going to be on the field a lot this season, so shares of the widely available Robertson are attractive. Speaking of snap-happy roles, the Dolphins Kiko Alonso is tied for the league lead in defensive snaps with 227 on the year. Alonso is eighth in fantasy points among backers and is rostered in just 30 percent of ESPN leagues as of press time. Run to the wire and put in a claim for the Bengals Vontaze Burfict, who returns from suspension Thursday and is a superstar fantasy asset worthy of ownership in all formats. -J.M.Defensive backJordan Poyer, Cleveland BrownsDiving deep into free agency we find Poyer available in, well, 100 percent of ESPN leagues at the moment. This ownership rate should clearly rise given Poyer has played on 90.2 percent of the teams defensive snaps over the past two games and could become a valuable source of tackles for as long as hes earning such exposure. Speaking of safeties who stay on the field on most snaps, Washingtons David Bruton has been on the field for 93.2 percent of the Redskins defensive plays so far and ranks fourth among defensive backs in fantasy points and seventh in tackles. -J.M.Defensive lineDanielle Hunter, Minnesota VikingsWe tried to warn you about Hunters potential to break out in 2016, as he ranked seventh in both fantasy points and sacks per snap among linemen with at least 300 snaps last season. With a sack in each of the first three games and an uptick in snap exposure, Hunters breakout is already well on the way. We also endorsed the Patriots Jabaal Sheard as a top addition to consider on the line, and hes produced the seventh-most pressures among 4-3 defensive ends so far this year, according to Pro Football Focus. A double-digit sack campaign is entirely realistic for Sheard if he can stay on the field. -J.M. Nike Air Max 90 Shoes Sale . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Mens . The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. at the helm of the top team in the Eastern Conference. His tenure as the GM in Vancouver was all too brief. Though he led the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later. OXON HILL, Md. -- Matt Holliday figures to balance the New York Yankees lineup while not adding a lengthy payroll commitment to a team trying to get under the luxury-tax threshold within the next two years.Our preference would be to find someone that would be a short-term contract, that allows us to retain our draft pick, that provides us payroll flexibility as we move forward, doesnt block any kids going forward in the future, and obviously Matt Holliday would qualify under all those circumstances, Cashman said Monday at the winter meetings.Cashman wouldnt confirm Hollidays $13 million, one-year deal, which was reached Sunday and is subject to a successful physical. But he made clear made what is likely to be the teams primary offensive addition. He brings a right-handed bat to a lefty-dominant batting order.We didnt score enough last year, so were trying to improve that, Cashman said. Also, someone that can play a position, more than just DH. Obviously he would be someone that checks all those boxes.Holliday, who turns 37 next month, is likely to be the Yankees primary designated hitter. A seven-time All-Star with a .303 career average, he spent 84 games in left field this year for St. Louis, 10 at first and eight at designated hitter.New York hit .254 with 47 home runs and 193 RBI in 1,680 at-bats against left-handed pitching, struggling as Alex Rodriguez flailed at the plaate before his release in August. Nike Air Max 90 Blue. Against righties, the Yankees batted .252 with 136 homers and 454 RBI in 3,778 at-bats.Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks are set to compete for time in right field, and Greg Bird and Tyler Austin for games at first base.Carlos Beltran, who had been a DH possibility, agreed to a $16 million, one-year contract with Houston.He moved quicker than we had an interest on moving on, Cashman said.Cashman also wants to add to his bullpen. New Yorks bullpen was its strength early last season, but the Yankees dealt Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs and Andrew Miller to Cleveland to restock their farm system with top prospects.Because he Chapman was dealt midseason, New York would not lose a draft pick if it signs himWe have been pursuing Aroldis Chapman. We also have been talking to Kenley Jansen, Cashman said. Our preference is to retain the pick, if possible. It doesnt mean its going to play out that way, but thats our preference.New York figures to let Luis Severino, Adam Warren, Bryan Mitchell, Luis Cessa and Chad Green compete for two rotation spots behind Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia and Michael Pineda.I think its less likely that we wind up with a starter. Its a tough market to be finding one in it, Cashman said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
