weep here, Ray said.A sweep

  • 15 Aug
    You advance if you win in the fantasy football playoffs, and hopefully you did just that! The second round of the playoffs is? here -- lets go!Week 14 injuries to monitor heading into the weekend:WR Michael Crabtree -- fingerWR Donte Moncrief -- hammyWR Julio Jones -- toeRB Melvin Gordon -- hip and kneeRB Matt Forte -- kneeRB Darren Sproles -- concussionQB Ryan Tannehill -- knee (out)QB Aaron Rodgers -- calfNews and notes:WR Sammy Watkins -- wants to play the remaining three gamesWR A.J. Green -- expected to practice this weekWR Michael Floyd -- DUI on Monday morningWR Alshon Jeffery -- comes off of suspension to play the Green Bay PackersHead coach Jeff Fisher -- fired from the Los Angeles RamsWaiver Wire Tuesday has arrived, and this is whom you need to target:QBTyrod Taylor vs. Cleveland (owned 58.8 percent)Taylor will start against the Browns on Sunday, and the Buffalo Bills quarterback will be playing to prove he is worthy of being among the starting 32. Clevelands pass defense has allowed 30 passing touchdowns in 2016, which is last in the NFL, and has given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.(Others to target = Colin Kaepernick @ Atlanta)RBKenneth Farrow vs. Oakland (owned .07 percent)Melvin Gordon suffered a hip injury last week and Farrow could receive a number of snaps if Gordon misses time. Farrow became the San Diego Chargers lead back after Gordon went down Sunday and totaled 16 carries for 55 yards and six receptions for 23 yards. If you own Gordon, its imperative you grab his handcuff immediately. #RunDontWalk(Others to target =?Bilal Powell vs. Miami, Kenneth Dixon vs. Philadelphia)WRTaylor Gabriel vs. San Francisco (owned 50.7 percent)Gabriel had three receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Atlanta Falcons win over the Rams. With Julio Jones (toe) and Mohamed Sanu (groin) out, Gabriel has become a must-own in fantasy. Gabriel has five touchdowns in his past six games, and in Week 15 he will take on the 49ers, whose defense has given up the eighth most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.(Others to target = Alshon Jeffery @ Green Bay, Tyreek Hill vs. Tennessee, Dontrelle Inman vs. Oakland, J.J. Nelson vs. New Orleans))TELadarius Green @ Cincinnati (owned 53.9 percent)Green had a subpar Week 14 due to winter conditions that impacted the mojo of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Green has an opportunity to rebound in Week 15 against the Bengals. Cincinnati has allowed three tight ends to post almost 80 yards in its past five games and its giving up the fourth-most fantasy points to these overgrown receivers in 2016.(Others to target = C.J. Fiedorowicz vs. Jacksonville)Good luck in the postseason! Aaron Rodgers Packers Jersey .

NEW YORK -- The Arizona Diamondbacks believe they have the pitching necessary to keep their winning streak going. Unfortunately for the New York Mets, their offensive firepower, or lack thereof, might be enough to keep their season spiraling out of control.The Diamondbacks will look to complete an unlikely sweep Thursday afternoon when they visit the Mets in the finale of a three-game series at Citi Field. Arizona won its third straight game Wednesday night when catcher Oscar Hernandez hit a go-ahead homer in the 12th inning of a 3-2 victory.Rookie right-hander Braden Shipley will make his fourth career start when he takes the mound for the 12:10 ET game. Shipley did not factor into the decision in his most recent start last Friday when he allowed two runs, four hits and six walks while striking out two in six innings in Arizonas 3-2, 11-inning win over the Milwaukee Brewers.The Diamondbacks (47-66) will be thrilled if Shipley can approximate the results produced Tuesday and Wednesday by right-hander Zack Greinke and left-hander Robbie Ray, who combined to allow three runs in 13 innings in their starts.Ray threw seven shutout innings Wednesday night, when he was in line for the win until closer Jake Barrett gave up a two-run pinch-homer to Kelly Johnson.Shipleys going to come out here (Thursday) and do a good job and were going to do our best to get this sweep here, Ray said.A sweep by the Diamondbacks would provide a little bit of solace in a lost seeason while providing a potentially lethal blow to the playoff hopes of the reeling Mets (57-56), who are trying to hang on in the race for the second wild card in the National League.dddddddddddd New York is 2 1/2 games behind the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals.We havent really had the season that we wanted to, but were still coming out every day, Ray said. Wins like these are huge for us.Gut-wrenching losses like Wednesdays are becoming commonplace for the Mets, who have lost their last seven one-run games dating to July 27.If you cant get over it, and youre going to let it linger in this league, youre going to have a tough time winning, Mets manager Terry Collins said.The Mets have not won consecutive games since July 6-7. They are 10-18 since then, a stretch in which New York has scored three runs or fewer 18 times.Weve got to find a groove here, Johnson said. I know one thing: These things tend to change. I think eventually well get on a little bit of a run, and its going to be fun when we do. Weve got some time left to do it.Right-hander Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to oppose Shipley. Syndergaard is 0-3 with a 3.49 ERA in his last five starts. He took the loss last Friday when he gave up four runs, seven hits and two walks while striking out seven in six innings as the Mets fell to the Detroit Tigers 4-3. ' ' '
