    导出博客文章The holidays arent the only thing just around the corner. Next week also brings
    a critical date on the fantasy football calendar.The trade deadline in ESPN
    leagues arrives Wednesday, Nov. 23, at 12 p.m. ET, roughly 24 hours before well
    all enjoy turkey, stuffing and football. Its your last chance to make a
    significant upgrade to your playoff-bound -- or playoff-hopeful -- roster,
    outside of free agency.That in mind, enjoy some metaphorical hors doeuvres in
    advance of Thanksgiving, by acquiring (those in the Buy list) or trading (Sell
    list) the recommended names below.BuyBen Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh
    Steelers: Hes one of the few high-end quarterbacks who might actually be
    affordable via trade, mainly because dealing for him means absorbing some risk
    in the injury department. Roethlisberger has missed five of the Steelers past 22
    regular-season games and has averaged 1.7 games missed in his dozen seasons as
    the teams full-time starter. Still, those willing to take chances tend to score
    the bargains, and Roethlisbergers Week 10 outburst was extremely encouraging in
    the health department, as he heads into whats one of the most favorable
    remaining schedules: at Cleveland, at Indianapolis, vs. the New York Giants, at
    Buffalo, at Cincinnati, vs. Baltimore and vs. Cleveland (its the second-most
    favorable using Week 11 Matchups Map data). If not for the schedule that Drew
    Brees has remaining -- its the most-favorable using that measure --
    Roethlisberger might be my choice to be fantasys top-scoring quarterback in the
    final seven weeks of the season. Also consider: Philip Rivers.Lamar Miller, RB,
    Houston Texans: Perhaps memories of the Dolphins inexplicably conservative usage
    of Miller are still too fresh, but his fantasy owners might be a tad panicky
    learning that he has played only 45 percent of the Texans offensive snaps in
    their past three games combined. Injuries, however, contributed, and once those
    are in his rear view, hell presumably have his workhorse role restored. After
    all, the Texans didnt invest $14 million in guaranteed money in Miller to have
    him languish in a committee, especially not when their $37 million (again,
    guaranteed money) quarterback is struggling this much. As with Roethlisberger,
    making a deal for Miller is absorbing some injury risk, but again, thats the
    point. Miller has RB1 skill, plus one of the better playoff schedules out there.
    Also consider: Jonathan Stewart.Michael Thomas, WR, New Orleans Saints: As
    hinted above, the Saints passing game as a whole has an extremely favorable
    remaining schedule, but Thomas is an especially attractive target because his
    perceived value hasnt yet caught up with his true value. (If you dont believe
    that, check out his ranking relative to Brandin Cooks in some of the
    rest-of-year sets elsewhere.) Thomas has more catches (56) and has played more
    offensive snaps (552) than Cooks (51 and 540), plus he has only two fewer
    targets (73-75) and run only 24 fewer routes (359-383). Hes also no more likely
    than Cooks to draw his opponents best coverage in any remaining game,
    significant in that the Saints remaining opponents have been tougher on No. 1
    wide receivers than the supporting cast. This is a great schedule for Brees
    spread-it-around tendencies. Also consider: Doug Baldwin.Dennis Pitta, TE,
    Baltimore Ravens: Among tight ends, hes first in routes run (316) and second in
    both targets (64) and receptions (46). If theres a knock on him, though, its
    that he has only five red zone targets, tied for 17th at the position, which
    helps explain how he hasnt yet caught a touchdown pass. Fortunately, Pittas
    remaining schedule includes a lot of games against defenses that have ceded
    volume in numbers to opposing tight ends, especially the Cincinnati Bengals (53
    catches, 10.7 fantasy points per game, fourth-most), whom hell face twice. He
    has a TE1 ceiling, but since hes probably a backup on many fantasy teams, he
    might come at the cost of a nonstarting RB or WR. Also consider: Coby
    Fleener.SellAaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers: Its wise to play the
    quarterback matchups -- especially for smaller league -- and dealing Rodgers is
    more a matter of his perceived value perhaps netting a low-end RB1 or WR1.
    Rodgers has two significant obstacles standing in his way: Matchups with the
    Seattle Seahawks (Week 14) and Minnesota Vikings (Week 16), which come at
    inopportune times, and five of his final six matchups overall grade as
    below-average (at best). He hasnt looked quite as sharp this season as in the
    past -- though his fantasy production has been extremely good during the softest
    part of his schedule these past three weeks. Without much support from his
    backfield, hes more likely to be exposed against tighter defenses in the coming
    weeks. Also consider: Marcus Mariota.Robert Kelley, RB, Washington Redskins: Hes
    one of the weeks hottest pickups, but hes a player to flip as quickly as you
    can, considering whats ahead. Kelley draws the Nos. 2 (at Arizona, Week 13), 4
    (vs. Carolina, Week 15), 6 (at Dallas, Week 12) and 8 (at Philadelphia, Week 14)
    worst matchups for a running back, using seasonal Matchups Map data, in his
    final seven games. Not a single one of his seven remaining matchups ranks among
    the 10-most favorable for the position. Kelleys numbers this season look
    impressive on the surface, but hes not a big-play running back and is more
    likely to be exposed by some of the tougher defenses out there. If your leagues
    trade market is valuing him as an RB2, make the deal. Also consider: Jay
    Ajayi.T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts: Like Thomas, Donte Moncrief has
    played a much larger role than perceived since returning from injury. Montcrief
    has played more offensive snaps (120), run more routes (73) and garnered more
    targets (15) with as many catches (7) as Hilton (108, 69, 14 and 7) in Weeks 8-9
    combined. While Hiltons hamstring injury did influence those numbers, some
    consideration must be given to the possibility that Moncriefs role is expanding
    in the Colts offense. Hiltons playoff schedule -- vs. Houston, at Minnesota, at
    Oakland, vs. Jacksonville -- is one of the most brutal (keep in mind that the
    Texans have owned him in their recent meetings), so see if you can use the fact
    that hes fresh off his bye week as reason to argue hes 100 percent and worthy of
    a top-five wide receiver trade return. A deal straight up for Miller, for
    example, might get it done. Also consider: Michael Crabtree.Delanie Walker, TE,
    Tennessee Titans: As productive as he has been of late, Walkers value probably
    wont get any higher than it is today. His Titans are one of the two teams with a
    Week 13 bye, which is simply awful for fantasy scheduling, then he returns to
    easily the most brutal schedule of any tight end: vs. Denver, at Kansas City, at
    Jacksonville, vs. Houston. All four defenses rank among the bottom 10 in terms
    of fantasy points per game allowed to the position, and Walker totaled 10
    fantasy points in his previous matchups against the Jacksonville Jaguars and
    Texans this season. On raw talent, hes easily regarded a top-three tight end
    going forward, except that matchup quality (not to mention volume) isnt there.
    If you could get a high-end RB2 -- perhaps aim high for a player like the
    aforementioned Miller or a WR2, like Baldwin -- and have a solid backup tight
    end, make the deal. Also consider: Jack Doyle.

    Hendricks in the fifth inning and allowed two runs to score on a wild pitch. Hes

    Baezs home run. The Chicago second baseman was 4 for 26 with 11 strikeouts

    spinning and yelling at the Chicago dugout after rounding first.The run jolted
    the already animated Cubs contingent in the stands. Progressive Field featured
    large swaths of blue and several loud chants of Lets Go Cubs during the pregame
    festivities and throughout the first inning. Kris Bryant was even serenaded by
    MVP! chants during his at-bat -- a common occurrence this season at Wrigley
    Field.It was the first leadoff homer allowed by Kluber this season. The last was
    Aug. 29, 2015, by Kole Calhoun.---7:30 p.m.The Chicago Cubs 9-3 win over
    Cleveland was the most-watched World Series Game 6 since 1997.Tuesday nights
    game had a 13.3 rating and 23 share on Fox, drawing 23.4 million viewers. It was
    the highest-rated Game 6 since the New York Yankees 2009 clincher against
    Philadelphia drew a 13.4/22 and the most-watched since Clevelands win at Florida
    in 1997 was seen by 23.7 million.The game drew 425,000 for Spanish-language
    coverage on Fox Deportes and 151,000 for digital coverage on Fox Sports Go, for
    a total audience of 24 million.This years Series entered Game 7 averaging an
    11.3/20 and 20 million viewers, the most watched since Bostons four-game sweep
    of St. Louis in 2004.The rating is the percentage of television households tuned
    to a program, and the share is the percentage showing a broadcast among those
    homes with TVs on at the time.---7:15 p.m.Welcome to Wrigleyille East.The
    prospect of the Chicago Cubs winning the franchises first title in more than a
    century led thousands of Cubs fans to invade Progressive Field ahead of Game 7.
    There were large swaths of Chicago blue in a sea of Cleveland red an hour before
    first pitch.Stubhub reported a surge in sales of Game 7 tickets from the Chicago
    area on the secondary market. Stubhub spokesman Cameron Papp says up to 60
    percent of transactions in the run-up to game time came from the greater Chicago
    market. A downloadable standing room only ticket was still going for $750 at 7
    p.m. Eastern.Indians manager Terry Francona says he expects the stadium to be
    rocking regardless of who buys the tickets and doesnt expect the influx of Cubs
    fans to have any impact on the outcome.---5:45 p.m.Wild Thing wasnt going to
    miss a Game 7 for the ages.Actor Charlie Sheen, who played Ricky Wild Thing
    Vaughn in Major League, the iconic film about a sad-sack Cleveland Indians team
    finally reaching the playoffs, will be at the climactic game between the Indians
    and Chicago Cubs.The Indians confirmed Sheen will be in attendance.With a push
    from fans on social media, Sheen had campaigned to throw out one of the
    ceremonial pitches before one of the four games in Cleveland. However, the
    Indians and Major League Baseball chose to go with former players to handle the
    duties.Sheens character in the film is a glasses-wearing, hard-throwing,
    hard-living right-hander who doesnt always find the strike zone. But once the
    fictional Indians figure out his eye problems he helps lead them to success.---5
    p.m.Between the broken ribs and peanut butter, Indians manager Terry Francona
    had an interesting, restless night before Game 7.Francona, who joked about
    wearing his uniform back to his nearby apartment following Game 6, said he didnt
    sleep well on Tuesday night.I had a nightmare that somebody broke my ribs, he
    said.Francona said he woke up and realized he had fallen asleep on his TV remote
    control, which had pushed deep into his ribs and left a mark.Beyond that,
    Francona, who ordered $44 worth of ice cream from room service while the team
    was in Chicago over the weekend, said his room looked like a national disaster.I
    had peanut butter on my glasses, he said. It was a bad night, man.---4:30
    p.m.Indians manager Terry Francona isnt punishing rookie center fielder Tyler
    Naquin by sitting him in Game 7.Naquin and right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall let a
    fly ball drop between them in the first inning of Game 6, a mistake that paved
    the way to Chicagos 9-3 win over Cleveland.Later, Naquin came up with the bases
    loaded in the fourth but struck out.Francona said he feels Naquin is pressing a
    little bit. During the regular season you might kind of let him get through it,
    but with one game left and with (Corey) Kluber pitching, were trying to put a
    premium on catching the ball.Rajai Davis will start in center against Cubs
    right-hander Kyle Hendricks. With the prospect of facing lefties Aroldis Chapman
    and Jon Lester late in Game 7, Francona wanted to have the right-handed hitting
    Davis in the lineup.You can tell hes pressing, Francona said of Naquin, who is
    batting .143 in the Series. Its not punishment. Its trying to win.---3:55
    p.m.The Cleveland Indians are tweaking their outfield for Game 7 after a costly
    mistake in Game 6.Center fielder Tyler Naquin is out and Rajai Davis is back in
    for Cleveland. Naquin and right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall let a fly ball drop
    between them and turn into a two-run double in the first inning of Tuesday
    nights loss.Carlos Santana will lead off for the Indians, followed by Jason
    Kipnis, Francisco Lindor, Mike Napoli and Jose Ramirez. Chisenhall will hit
    sixth, with Davis seventh, Coco Crisp eighth and Roberto Perez catching and
    hitting ninth.---3:30 p.m.The Chicago Cubs are sticking with what works in Game
    7 of the World Series.The Cubs will use the same lineup that torched the
    Cleveland Indians for nine runs in a Game 6 win against Indians ace Corey Kluber
    on Wednesday night.Dexter Fowler will lead off, followed by Kyle Schwarber, Kris
    Bryant and Anthony Rizzo. Ben Zobrist, who is hitting .391 in the series, will
    hit fifth. Addison Russell, who tied a World Series record with six RBI in Game
    6, will hit sixth, followed by Willson Contreras, Jason Heyward and Javier
    Baez.The Cubs have managed just one run off Kluber in his two starts in the
    Series, victories by the Indians in Game 1 and Game 4.---3:10 p.m.The Indians
    are bringing out one of their biggest bats for Game 7.Jim Thome, the teams
    career home run leader, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch when the
    Indians and Cubs meet with one of the franchises finally ending a long
    championship drought.Thome was a member of the last Cleveland team to play in
    the Series in 1997, when the Indians lost Game 7 to Florida. He has attended
    several games in this Series. Thome grew up in Illinois and rooted for the Cubs
    as a kid.But his allegiance remains to the Indians, whom he played for from
    1191-2002 and came back in 2011. The slugger hit 612 career homers -- 337 during
    his time with Cleveland -- and hes immortalized with a statue beyond the
    center-field wall.---12:55 p.m.There is a chance of rain in the late innings of
    World Series Game 7 at Clevelands Progressive Field.Unseasonably warm
    temperatures in the upper 60s or low 70s are forecast for Wednesday night. The
    chance of rain increases from 19 percent at 8 p.m. to 49 to 55 percent at 11
    p.m., according to AccuWeather.AccuWeather senior meteorologist Brian Wimer says
    in a statement: While a brief shower cannot be ruled out during Wednesday
    evening, if Game 7 runs late or goes into extra innings, then the chance of
    drenching rain will increase.Major League Baseball announced late Tuesday it was
    moving up the start time by 8 minutes to 8 p.m.Last week, the start of Game 2
    was moved up by 1 hour to 7:08 p.m. Light rain started in the eighth inning, and
    heavy rain hit shortly after the final out at about 11:15 p.m. ' ' '
