    Ronald Koeman believes Romelu Lukaku may have to leave Everton to realise his full potential. [b]Darius Slayton Jersey[/b] . The Toffees manager has admitted he does not know if Lukaku will stay at the club beyond next summer, after the prolific Belgium striker agreed in August to remain for another season. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. And Koeman thinks Lukaku, who has scored seven goals in 11 appearances for Everton this term, has the ability to play for Barcelona. I gave him confidence and he has himself recognised that it was good for his development to play another year at Everton, Koeman told Belgian newspaper HLN.There is a very good contact and appreciation between us. What after this season comes, no one knows.If Romelu was to play at Everton until the end of his career, I know he has left something (behind). His potential is greater and higher than Everton, as a final destination.Patrick Kluivert was also a striker who was quite young in the picture and had a fantastic career. Eventually Kluivert played for Barcelona, which could happen with Lukaku.He is potentially a great striker, one who is only 23 years old. I think Lukaku is quite complete. He can hold a ball and be a target man and, because he is tall and physically strong. You can play directly with the long ball.

They probably ruined Tim Duncans hopes of a career change, though. Duncan wants to be a point guard, coach Gregg Popovich revealed Saturday, a wish that wont be granted.

Brandon Belt had three runs batted in as well. Bumgarner pitched all nine innings and allowed just four hits.Each week, TSN.ca Fantasy Editor Scott Cullen and NFL Editors Mitch Ward and Ben Fisher discuss three hot fantasy football topics. 1) Who is the better fantasy quarterback, Michael Vick or Nick Foles? Cullen: Right now, it sure seems like its Nick Foles. Vick provides too much of a roller coaster ride, from a 400-yard passing game in Week Two, to completing fewer than 50% of his passes over the next three weeks. Foles doesnt present the same kind of running threat, and its why he doesnt have a ceiling as high as Vick, but Foles floor ought to be better and when it comes to fantasy, the last thing a team can afford is to get a dud week from the quarterback. Ward: Tough call. It all depends on who is going to play. Foles is getting the start this week but who knows once Michael Vick is 100 percent recovered from his hamstring injury. There are arguments to be made for both as a starter, but personally if Vick is healthy I think he is the starter. His running ability fits in with Chip Kellys style and allows the Eagles to use their whole offensive playbook. A healthy Vicks versatility give him the edge in my eyes because there is always the threat of a monster fantasy day. If he isnt healthy enough to run though, the edge goes to Foles. Fisher: This is a tough one to answer because Vick and Foles each have red flag. Vicks is that hes injury prone while Foles is inexperience, you dont know if Week 6 was an aberration or a sign of things to come. When Vick is healthy, his average fantasy stats put him in the Top 3 among quarterbacks. Despite his stellar debut, that is something I think Foles is unlikely to maintain. I would pick Vick and roll the dice with a waiver wire pickup on weeks hes injured. The real answer of course comes in who the Eagles go with as starter in real football. 2) With a number of rookie receivers breaking out lately, which one will finish the year with the most fantasy points? Cullen: Four rookie receivers -- DeAndre Hopkins, Keenan Allen, Kenbrell Thompkins and Terrance Williams -- have more than 300 yards receiving, so those are the leading contenders (Robert Woods at 274 yards could be in the mix, too) and, from that group, I like Allen the best. He has a prolific quarterback, Philip Rivers, whose game appears to have been resurrected this season and Allen is the best wide receiver option on his team, thanks to Malcom Floyd and Danario Alexander suffering season-ending injuries. Hopkins might be the most gifted of the group, but hes still behind Andre Johnson in the Texans pecking order and the quarterback play in Houston has been shaky to say the least. Thompkins is turning into a big-play threat for Tom Brady, but is competing with Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and fellow rookie Aaron Dobson for targets. Williams has been a big-play threat for the Cowboys, particularly when Miles Austin was out of the lineup, but it remains to be seen how much he will get the ball now that Austin is healthy. For a team tthat already has Dez Bryant and Jason Witten commanding a lot of attention in the passing game, Williams may need another Austin injury if hes going to finish among the rookie leaders. [b]Deandre Baker Womens Jersey[/b]. Ward: Keenan Allen in San Diego. Philip Rivers is playing very well and has developed some really good chemistry with the 76th overall pick out of Cal. With Malcolm Floyd on IR, the door is open for Allen to seize the Chargers No. 1 receiver job and hes doing just that. Allen has a real chance to make plays and put up good numbers week in and week out. Hes your best rookie receiver for fantasy purposes going forward this season ahead of first rounders like Tavon Austin and DeAndre Hopkins. Fisher: Keenan Allen wouldnt have been the answer a couple of weeks ago, but he might be now. The guy has had a monstrous past two weeks, averaging 7.5 catches, more than 100 yards, and a touchdown. The third-rounder started the year slow, but now that he appears a fixture in the surprising solid San Diego offence, hes a must-own. He might not be able to keep up the 100-yards receiving pace, but should continue to see double-digit targets the rest of the way. Kenbrell Thompkins is still leads all rookie wideouts in points, but Allen is catching up fast. 3) Is Joseph Fauria a one-week wonder, or worth a flyer moving forward? Cullen: Until Fauria starts getting more targets, he has to be considered a one-week wonder. There are reasons that he scored three touchdowns against Cleveland, not least of which is his size mismatch with Browns defensive backs around the goalline, but Fauria has a total of seven catches in six games, five of which have gone for touchdowns. Until the Lions make him part of the offence somewhere other than the goalline or red zone, Fauria isnt worth owning in fantasy leagues. Now, if that three touchdown game sparks some ideas for the Lions brass and suddenly Fauria is a more significant part of the offence, sure, then hes worth the upside play. Ward: Hes probably worth a flyer in deep leagues because he has proven himself to be a legitimate red zone target for Matthew Stafford. He is the definition of a boom or bust play though with his numbers being so heavily dependent on touchdowns. He either scores a touchdown or puts up a bagel. If youre looking for any kind of consistency, Fauria is not your guy. Fisher: Fauria has played in three games and caught at least one touchdown pass in all of them on his just nine targets and seven catches. But even after his incredible three target, three TD performance last week the undrafted rookie still isnt a viable option in fantasy. Hes strictly a red zone specialist so if he doesnt score youll get next to no points out of him. And the healthier Calvin Johnson gets, the less opportunity Fauria will have in the end zone, not to mention defences keying on him after his big day. With Fauria doing so much damage with so little opportunity, Id love to see the Lions bust him out a little more often moving forward. ' ' '
