Pierre-Paul: Blood will be spilled vs. Dallas

JPP: Giants “To Put It On” Cowboys

 

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The New York Giants’ four-game winning streak and the Dallas Cowboys’ recent struggles imply Sunday’s recreation between the teams at MetLife Stadium will carry a level of significance that when appeared inconceivable.

This isn’t lost within the Giants’ locker room, the place Sunday night time defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul fired up some very confident-sounding talk concerning the matchup.

“We’ll put it on them, man,” Pierre-Paul mentioned after the Giants’ 27-thirteen victory over the Inexperienced Bay Packers, wherein he returned an interception 24 yards for a landing. “I am fairly certain the offense is going to get going. The protection is going to get going much more. And the special groups will contribute to it.

“It may be a combat. It should be a dogfight. There’s going to be a lot of blood spilled on the market.”

The Giants (four-6) started the season with a 36-31 road loss to the Cowboys. That was Pierre-Paul’s first sport again after lacking the preseason following again surgical procedure, and afterward he mentioned he was dissatisfied not to be able to play at full strength because of how essential video games towards the Cowboys are to him. He blocked a field purpose to clinch a win at Dallas in December 2011, helping the Giants en route to their newest Super Bowl title, and he returned a Tony Romo interception for a touchdown in final season’s recreation in Texas.

After this year’s season-opening loss, the Giants misplaced five extra video games to begin zero-6. However they have won four in a row to maneuver within a game of the second-place Cowboys (5-5) and 1½ video games of the primary-place Philadelphia Eagles (6-5) in a tightly bunched NFC East race. Nobody within the Giants’ locker room is going to have a tough time getting up for this one.

“We all know the motivation goes to be there,” linebacker Jon Beason said after the Packers game. “It’s the Cowboys. The winner’s going to go on and nonetheless have an opportunity, and the loser is probably done.”

In Irving, Texas, the Cowboys responded to Pierre-Paul’s potential bulletin-board comments with a collective shrug.

“He’s presupposed to feel that method,” vast receiver Dez Bryant said. “You are an opponent. We’re an opponent for them. It is great confidence.

“We’re simply going to go out there and play our game. All we deal with is the best way we put together and prepare for games. We’re going to go on the market and give it our all.”

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett does not want his staff to get caught up in any kind of trash-talking back-and-forth, just like the outdated days with Brandon Jacobs and Patrick Crayton trading barbs.

“We just have to concentrate on what we have to do,” Garrett said. “We’ve got nice respect for the Giants, their players, their coaches, their football group. We’ve to go up there and play our best football.”

Nicks has heard of rumors, but ‘I’m a Giant’

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – New York Giants large receiver Hakeem Nicks stated he is conscious that his title has come up in trade rumors, but up to now no one in the organization has stated something to him about it and, as of now, he expects to complete the season with the workforce.

“I am a Big, and that is the one thing I can focus on proper now,” Nicks stated after apply Monday morning. “I am a Big, and I love enjoying for the Giants. I’m a Giant right now, and I will stand strong on that.”

Nicks is within the remaining 12 months of his contract. The crew signed wide receiver Victor Cruz to an extended-time period deal within the offseason and has made second-12 months large receiver Rueben Randle a big part of the passing game, even as he continues to develop. Randle has been targeted 43 instances to Nicks’ 46 and Cruz’s 60.

With the Giants zero-6 and all but out of the playoff hunt well prematurely of the Oct. 29 trade deadline, Nicks’ name is one of the more outstanding to be introduced up in speculation about who might be dealt to a receiver-needy contender such as the New England Patriots or San Francisco 49ers.

[+] EnlargeHakeem NicksRob Grabowski/USA TODAY Sports activities“I am a Giant, and that’s the only thing I can focus on right now,” Hakeem Nicks mentioned Monday, addressing rumors forward of this month’s commerce deadline.

And there are many causes it would make sense for them to get one thing for him if they have been positive they weren’t going to carry him again next season.

An NFL source stated that the Giants have yet to entertain any Nicks trade discuss, though the supply acknowledged that things may change because the deadline acquired closer. The crew hasn’t dominated out bringing Nicks back for 2014, and the plan all along was to see how he played in 2013 after a 2012 season in which he was limited by damage after which resolve whether or not (and at what value) to make him part of its future plays.

Nicks stated he tries to dam out “exterior talk,” but that he is heard a few of this. He has not approached Giants normal supervisor Jerry Reese or anyone else within the organization to ask about his status.

“I am sure they’ve got sufficient respect for me to return to me and talk to me about a situation like that,” Nicks said. “As of now, I am a Large. At the end of the day, business is enterprise. But I have never been getting any whiff of anything like that. I am a Giant right now, and I’m going to enjoy it, and we’ve got to start profitable video games.”

Coach Tom Coughlin preached a give attention to nothing past the upcoming game, and the locker room thus far continues to purchase into that despite the dismal outcomes and a file that is unprecedented for practically the entire players.

Running again Brandon Jacobs stated that a trade of a key veteran might be damaging to the crew’s efforts to stay together throughout tough occasions.

“The business a part of it is the enterprise part of it, but depending on the individual, it could possibly be a dagger,” Jacobs stated. “I think it might undoubtedly harm, with us in a vulnerable state right now.”

Bears pick off Eli 3 times, send Giants to 0-6

Bears Maintain Off Giants

CHICAGO – Jay Cutler had no hassle discovering Brandon Marshall this time.

Tim Jennings struck early and late, and the Chicago Bears received the win they wanted against a workforce nonetheless looking for its first victory.

Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Marshall, and Jennings had two of Chicago’s three interceptions towards Eli Manning in a 27-21 victory over the New York Giants on Thursday night.

The Bears (4-2) snapped a two-game slide following a 3-zero start. New York is zero-6 for the first time since the 1976 group dropped its first 9, a stunning turn for a franchise that received the Super Bowl two years ago.

“We see things each and every week that inform us we can not simply be good, we will be very good,” Bears coach Marc Trestman mentioned. “But we also know there’s a number of work ahead.”

The Giants came in clinging to the concept that they might claw their approach back into the NFC East race as a result of each team in the division has a dropping document. It’s exhausting to see that taking place, the best way they’re enjoying.

“We’re all sick of it,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “We’re all sick of dropping, however we put ourselves in this position. There is just one solution to get out of it.”

Cutler and Marshall have been in tune early on, connecting for 2 touchdowns, and Jennings returned an interception 48 yards for a score as Chicago constructed a 24-14 halftime lead.

The Bears had been up by thirteen when New York’s Brandon Jacobs ran it in from the 1 within the closing seconds of the third after Jennings received called for interference against Hakeem Nicks close to the aim line. That lower it to 27-21, but Jennings made up for it in a big method when he picked off an overthrown cross by Manning intended for tight end Brandon Myers on the 10 with 1:54 left in the sport.

Cutler was 24 of 36 for 262 yards after throwing for 358 towards New Orleans final week. Marshall played an enormous function on this one after venting over a scarcity of catches towards the Saints, ending with nine receptions for 87 yards. Martellus Bennett had 68 yards on six catches against his former team, whereas Alshon Jeffery had just one reception after going off for a franchise-record 218 yards in the earlier sport.

“We received the game, however we sort of leave a little bit unhappy as a result of I think offensively we might have exploded for somewhat bit more,” Cutler stated.

Robbie Gould kicked two area targets, together with a 52-yarder in the third quarter that gave him 12 straight conversions from 50 or longer, and the Bears eased at least a number of nerves, even when this win got here against one of many NFL’s four winless groups.

Manning, the proprietor of two championship rings, completed 14 of 26 passes for 239 yards and a touchdown, but he ran his league-main complete to 15 interceptions whereas matching last season’s quantity. He had passes picked off on the first two possessions, with Jennings’ 48-yard TD approaching the second one.

“I feel unhealthy for my teammates. I feel bad for my coaches and everybody, preventing day-after-day, and I am preventing, too,” Manning mentioned. “I’m trying to get a win for these guys.”

It is not easy when he keeps throwing it to the other team. However the Giants aren’t about to go away from him.

“You’re not going to go back to not throwing the soccer. That’s not one thing that’s going to occur,” Coughlin mentioned. “He is been too profitable for therefore many years throwing the ball.”

Rueben Randle had seventy five yards receiving and a touchdown for New York. Jacobs, starting for the injured David Wilson, ran for 106 yards and two scores, however the Giants fell yet once more.

Cutler threw for 179 yards in the first two quarters, Marshall had 65 and the Bears racked up 227 yards in the opening half. The Giants (212 yards) moved the ball in the early going but had bother hanging onto the ball again – no surprise there.

In any case, they came in leading the league with 20 turnovers. The Bears, who had 14 takeaways when the evening started, rapidly added to that total.

Zack Bowman, starting for Charles Tillman (proper knee damage), picked off a go meant for Randle on the game’s third play from scrimmage at the 36 and returned it to the New York 12. The Bears got here away empty-handed on an incomplete cross from Cutler to Marshall on fourth-and-2 on the 4, but they shortly grabbed the lead on the Giants’ next possession. Jennings obtained an easy interception on what seemed like a miscommunication between Manning and Randle, returning it 48 yards for his second landing this season.

The Giants then drove eighty yards to tie it at 7, with Jacobs dragging Corey Wootton and Jennings as he plowed in on a 4-yard run. Marshall, sporting lime inexperienced footwear in honor of psychological well being consciousness week, put the Bears back on top with a ten-yard TD catch within the opening minute of the second quarter to finish an 86-yard drive.

New York quickly tied it when Randle stayed inbounds along the sideline on a 37-yard TD catch, but Chicago instantly answered with an 80-yard scoring drive, with Cutler connecting with Marshall on a three-yard move to make it 21-14.

Gould added a forty-yarder in the closing seconds of the half to increase the lead to 10.

Thursday fantasy fliers, Week 6: New York’s backfield, last resort of the truly desperate

Brandon Jacobs, dangerous fantasy play who may by accident work out (USAT Pictures)

This week, I am tripped up by my very own floor rules. For me, a player would not qualify as a flier except he’s un-owned and available in two-thirds of Yahoo leagues. Thus, I can’t actually use today’s post to speak up guys like Rueben Randle (forty seven % owned), Cutty (seventy four) or Brandon Myers (54).

Wish I could, but those players are off the board. Instead, I am compelled to sift through a collection of sketchy names, some of them tied to the Giants’ tragic offense. YIKES.

If you are enjoying in an eight, 10, 12 or 14-staff league, you may just cease studying proper now. Possibly click on over to the Week 6 ranks, or perhaps enjoy a video.

But in the event you’re concerned in an extremely deep format — like, Mariana Trench-deep — then you might have to think about certainly one of these (terrible) options…

Brandon Jacobs, RB, NYG (9 % owned, which is probably too much) – To be clear, I am not truly starting Jacobs anywhere. I play in three completely different 16-workforce leagues and a pair of 20-teamers, yet I’ve made no effort to add Jacobs to any rosters. He is gained simply forty eight yards on 22 carries this season (2.2 YPC), catching just one ball on five targets. He wasn’t a flashy player in his best years, and, at 31, his finest years are clearly behind him.

“You become older, things occur,” he says. “I’m what I am.”

And what is he? Effectively, he’s technically a beginning working again within the Nationwide Football League. So there’s that. David Wilson and Andre Brown are sidelined by injuries, so Jacobs has to play. If the Giants offense can get inside a few inches of the aim line on Thursday, he would possibly stumble into the tip zone. It’s possible. Stranger things have occurred.

Way again when Jacobs was a fascinating fantasy commodity, Yahoo’s Brad Evans used to discuss with him as “The Soccer Frankenstein.” The nickname has by no means felt more applicable than it does as we speak, in 2013. Jacobs now runs like a man who’s been assembled from stolen corpses. Still, he is in line for double-digit touches against Chicago, so, um.. he probably won’t submit a detrimental fantasy complete. I’ll say that much.

Da’Rel Scott, RB, NYG (5 p.c owned) – These previous two weeks have been slightly bizarre for Scott, I might think about. In New York’s loss to the Chiefs on September 29, he and Wilson cut up snaps pretty evenly (29 to twenty-eight), and he carried 5 times for 26 yards. Two days later, the Giants waived him. And six days after that, the workforce added him once more.

Scott has put a couple of ugly moments tape this season, and he isn’t exactly essentially the most explosive back you’ll ever see. However he, like Jacobs, goes to see the field plenty towards the Bears. He’ll handle the ball, for higher or worse. Chicago’s defense has given up 375 scrimmage yards and three TDs to opposing backs over its last two video games, so we’re not speaking a few unit it’s essential to avoid.

Am I starting Scott anyplace? No. Do I personal him? No. But when it’s worthwhile to deploy him in a mega-league, I would be willing to look the other approach.

Goal Line Stand: Week 4 Rankings

fants

Arian Foster is out-touching Ben Tate fifty seven-35. So why does he have simply 21 more yards from scrimmage?

Film review reveals a player who isn’t emerging from piles with as many additional yards as we’re used to seeing. Houston’s run blocking actually appears improved on it’s down — by its standards — 2012, whereas Foster has been typically making the precise reads. He merely isn’t attending to the second stage as simply as he as soon as did. It’s to be anticipated for a participant who pushed his touch odometer past 1,000 the previous three seasons, and led the league in carries in 2012. That being stated, Foster hardly appears to be like out of fuel. In reality, he looked pretty much as good as he had all season within the first half of Sunday’s loss to the Ravens, however didn’t get a chance to get into a second-half groove and put on down the defense with Houston falling behind 24-9 early in the third quarter.

Reality be advised, there hasn’t been a lot distinction between Foster and Tate since Week 1, the place Tate seemed shot out of a cannon in opposition to San Diego’s horrible run defense and Foster seemed drained. Since, Foster has actually appeared a tad extra slippery, with Tate wanting a bit sluggish, significantly Sunday. Since Tate’s 60-yard scamper on his first carry of Week 2 — the place he received run down by (admittedly athletic) Titans LB Zach Brown — Tate has averaged simply four.05 yards on 17 carries. Foster, in the meantime, has averaged 4.29 yards on 31 totes since Week 2. We’re performing some serious cherry choosing here, however the point is, the emerging narrative that Foster is on his last legs while Tate is being unjustly diminished to second fiddle is overblown.

What’s not overblown are Foster’s utilization considerations. This is very much a committee in the intervening time, one which’s operating into the Seahawks’ buzzsaw defense this weekend. With Foster-Tate in basically a 60-40 timeshare, neither are notably excessive-upside performs in a game where the Texans could again fall behind early. Foster is an RB2, Tate a shaky FLEX choice. But Foster owners shouldn’t quit hope. Perhaps his RB1 days are behind him. The movie suggests he’s going to hit fewer dwelling runs than he did in 2010-12. What it additionally suggests, nevertheless, is that he still has loads of useful football left in his 27-year-old legs. It simply won’t be elite.

QB Notes: Peyton Manning may as nicely construct a beach house and placing green in the Eagles’ secondary. This could get ugly. … Drew Brees has yet to throw for fewer than 322 yards in a sport this season. A touchdown avalanche is coming. … Michael Vick is predictably taking a ton of hits, however has to this point been standing and delivering, both to his wideouts and fantasy owners. He’s out-pointed each quarterback not named Peyton Manning. … Robert Griffin III’s play has hardly warranted a prime-five ranking, however he’s been simply ok, and is going through a Raiders defense permitting a thoughts-boggling 76.5 completion share. Throw in Oakland’s comfortable front seven, and all the elements are there for an RGIII breakout outdoors of rubbish time. … Tony Romo is off to a slow-ish start, however eased by the Rams in Week 3 and is facing a Chargers protection that’s allowed probably the most passing yards within the league by the season’s first three weeks (1,022). Begin him with confidence.

The Patriots’ go protection seems to be to be for actual, but with Roddy White lastly trending again toward full well being, Matt Ryan stays a safe QB1. The sport is at the Georgia Dome, where Ryan boasts a profession 34-5 file in comparison with 23-19 on the street. … Russell Wilson’s 9.10 YPA is third within the NFL. … After one week in the QB2 wilderness, Brady is again in QB1 territory. Is the promotion warranted? It’s arduous to say. He’d be no better than No. eleven have been Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton not on bye, whereas his 5.5 YPA is the worst within the NFL. Brady is coming off a superb game against a terrific defense, nonetheless, whereas he finally gave the impression to be on the same web page with rookies Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson in Week three. Throw in the attainable return of Rob Gronkowski, and you’ve got a future Corridor-of-Famer who’s not worth betting against in a dome versus an harm-decimated protection.

The Colts are more likely to go run heavy in opposition to the Jaguars’ league-worst run defense, but enjoying as sound of soccer as any quarterback within the league, you don’t bench Andrew Luck in opposition to a staff missing both of its beginning cornerbacks. Luck’s utilization has been irritating — his 93 move attempts are twenty fifth in the NFL — but talent all the time wins out. Luck shouldn’t even need more than 25 attempts to put up QB1 numbers towards the Jags. … Philip Rivers’ numbers — 70.zero completion share, 7.ninety eight YPA, 116.2 QB score and 8:1 TD:INT ratio — are nice, nevertheless it’s straightforward to neglect he’s surpassed 200 yards simply once in three games. That was towards the Eagles, who should give up 200 yards to most quarterbacks earlier than halftime this season. Facing a Cowboys crew on the street that’s forced seven turnovers by way of three video games, Rivers’ scorching start will likely be put to the test.

Quarterbacks by no means blame their supporting solid for slip ups or poor performances. That’s Quarterbacking one zero one. But if Colin Kaepernick were allowed a moment of honesty? He’d most likely say something like, “how am I purported to information this team to more than seven points when Vernon Davis is out and Kyle Williams is starting?” Outdoors of Anquan Boldin — who doesn’t win with separation, but toughness — Kaepernick flatly didn’t have a receiver capable of getting open last weekend, and the Colts responded by bearing down on the box and eliminating his running lanes. Kaepernick has been far from good the past two weeks, as his six turnovers would attest. But what’s he supposed to do? Gap up in an Alex Smith-like shell as the 49ers protection gets embarrassed by Seattle and run throughout by Ahmad Bradshaw? Possibly Kaepernick has been forcing the problem. It will be tough to pin all six turnovers on his teammates. However somebody needs to try to make performs for the 49ers while they wait on Davis — who needs to be again this night — and Kaepernick has continued to do so, perhaps at the expense of your fantasy matchup. Possibly he’ll break again out tonight, maybe he won’t. It’s going to be robust in a brief week on the street. However to suggest that defenses have figured Kaepernick out is a lazy assumption devoid of context. There are few higher buy-low targets.

Terrelle Pryor (concussion) could possibly be absent from these rankings by this time tomorrow if he doesn’t acquire clearance, but the early signs suggest he’ll play towards the Redskins, and the season-lengthy indicators recommend he’ll shred them. Washington has allowed a hard-to-believe 1,464 yards by way of its first three video games, and is 31st both in opposition to the cross (333 yards per sport) and run (one hundred fifty five). If there was ever a week to start Pryor in a one-QB league, this is it. … Jay Cutler is off to a strong, if measured, start below new coach Marc Trestman. 300 yards might not be in the offing towards the Lions, but there are few stabler plug-and-play QB2s. … Eli Manning’s 931 yards are sixth in the NFL, but coming off a recreation where he absorbed a preposterous seven sacks, he may not make it out alive in opposition to the Chiefs’ league-main pass rush on the highway. … Maybe Ben Roethlisberger will survive the yr as a solid QB2, in any case. How he fares against the Vikings’ shaky secondary and go rush might be a huge indicator.

Lace Joe Flacco up towards the league’s most damage-ravaged protection, which permitted 11.four yards per try to Geno Smith final Sunday. … The fantasy numbers aren’t fairly there but for Ryan Tannehill, but the peripherals (66.four completion percentage, 7.seventy three YPA) suggest they soon will be. He must cease fumbling and taking so many sacks, nevertheless. Only (vastly) improved protection will be certain that. … Sam Bradford: Pretty Sam Bradford-y to this point in 2013, though — as standard — he’s been harm immensely by drops. Per Professional Football Focus, his pass catchers have already muffed 12 passes. … Alex Smith: What quarterbacking at 55 miles per hour appears to be like like. … Game-supervisor Matt Schaub has watched his yardage totals go from 346 to 298 to 194. Don’t be stunned if he sets one other new low vs. Seattle this weekend. … Although they’re both coming off robust fantasy efforts, start Geno Smith and Brian Hoyer at your own danger.

 

Arian Foster is out-touching Ben Tate fifty seven-35. So why does he have just 21 more yards from scrimmage?

Houston’s run blocking really appears improved on it’s down — by its requirements — 2012, while Foster has been typically making the best reads. He simply isn’t getting to the second level as simply as he once did. It’s to be anticipated for a player who pushed his touch odometer previous 1,000 the past three seasons, and led the league in carries in 2012. That being said, Foster hardly looks out of gas. The truth is, he regarded as good as he had all season in the first half of Sunday’s loss to the Ravens, however didn’t get an opportunity to get into a second-half groove and put on down the defense with Houston falling behind 24-9 early in the third quarter.

RB Notes: Looking stronger every week, Jamaal Charles might finally blast again into the fantasy stratosphere in opposition to the Giants’ strolling-dead defense. Charles’ 18 catches are tied for the league lead amongst operating backs. … The NFL hasn’t found a solution for LeSean McCoy by way of his first three games in Chip Kelly’s offense, however Denver’s high-ranked run defense — 43.3 yards per recreation, 2.3 yards per carry — can be by far the hardest problem he’s confronted. … The most surprising a part of Doug Martin’s so-so (however still solid) start? He’s caught just 4 passes via three video games after snagging forty nine as a rookie. That should change in a big approach going forward. Though new Bucs QB Mike Glennon is thought for his large arm and big body, he was also recognized for checking it down at NC State. With the Bucs lacking a succesful slot risk or go-catching tight end, you better imagine the Muscle Hamster might be racking up targets, restoring the receiving threat that helped make him third in the NFL in yards from scrimmage final season.

Matt Forte’s 363 yards from scrimmage are fourth amongst running backs, whereas his 18 catches are tied with Jamaal Charles for the working-back lead. … Alfred Morris is averaging 5.6 yards per carry. So why does he have simply forty of them? Because the Redskins have spent the complete season playing from behind. Astonishingly, Morris has gotten the ball as soon as whereas Washington’s had a lead. That ought to lastly change this weekend with the Redskins taking over an opponent extra their velocity within the Raiders. … DeMarco Murray is an effective participant. Perhaps an ideal one. So take this amusing, however mostly pointless, statistic with a grain of salt. For his profession, Murray has averaged four.eight yards on his 383 carries. When you take out his fifty one totes in opposition to the Rams, however? His YPC plunges from four.eight to 4.3. Murray gets a run defense almost as soft because the Rams’ in San Diego this weekend.

Squeaky wheel, is thy name Frank Gore? For a lot of causes, the answer is sort of definitely “yes.” Rightfully upset after he obtained just eleven carries in Sunday’s blowout loss — regardless of averaging 7.forty five yards per tote — Gore reportedly had some “selection phrases” for coach Jim Harbaugh. Gore has since downplayed the situation, but all indicators point to a a lot greater workload towards the Rams. St. Louis is contemporary off getting torched by DeMarco Murray, whereas the 49ers have confirmed completely incapable of transferring the ball via the air since Week 1. It all provides as much as re-emphasizing the run sport in opposition to a division rival in a should-win sport, and to fantasy owners lastly getting a giant week out of their pseudo RB1. … Ray Rice (hip) expects to play Sunday, but might find yourself a game-time choice for the second consecutive week. If the Ravens declare him able to go on Friday or Saturday, nonetheless, he’ll be a should begin RB1 in opposition to the Payments’ battered run protection. If Rice finally ends up once more sitting out, Bernard Pierce will be a plug-and-play RB2 in a far juicier matchup than the one he bumped into last Sunday towards the Texans.

Darren McFadden’s first three games by carries/yards/YPC: 17/48/2.eight, 19/129/6.eight and 12/9/zero.8. The increase-or-bust trend is about to continue for one more week against the Redskins’ saloon-door run protection. DMC can be bumped down, although, if Terrelle Pryor (concussion) can’t go. To date, the operating lanes opened up by Pryor’s scrambling ability seem like the difference between DMC’s 2012 and 2013. … Contemporary off a terrible matchup in his abbreviated first week as a Colt, the opponent for Trent Richardson’s second sport in blue-and-white couldn’t be more inviting. Thus far, the Jaguars’ overmatched entrance seven is allowing 167.7 yards per game on the ground, and 5.2 yards per carry. The Colts’ coaching employees is intent on making things difficult, nevertheless, with head man Chuck Pagano saying Wednesday his running back rotation would stay the identical as it did in Week three’s upset win. Ahmad Bradshaw touched the ball 22 times towards the 49ers, with T-Rich taking the rock thirteen times. Do we actually anticipate Bradshaw to get the ball 9 extra instances than Richardson for the second consecutive week? No. Is it a fluid enough state of affairs to keep Richardson out of the ranks out of the RB1s for not less than one more sport? Unfortunately, yes. T-Rich could finish the timeshare by doing what he’s anticipated to do in opposition to the league’s worst run protection.

Update: With Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) now declared out for Week 4, Trent Richardson has been ran into the highest 10. 

Bilal Powell is brief on talent, however he’s all of the sudden lengthy on volume in an offense that’s lacking Chris Ivory and rediscovered the run in Week three. With so many query marks across the running-back panorama, Powell is a legit RB2. … Is Invoice Belichick the brand new Mike Shanahan in terms of seemingly arbitrary use of his backs? Stevan Ridley’s homeowners appear to assume so, but the answer is a flat “no.” Ridley simply led all Patriots backs in snaps and touches last season, and goes to do so again in 2013. His uneven first three weeks — largely the result of two fumbles and two robust run-game opponents — aren’t going to alter that. Start him confidently against Atlanta’s injury-smoked floor unit. … Don’t let Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman’s rubbish-time carries idiot you: Knowshon Moreno remains the unquestioned leader of Denver’s running-back carousel. … David Wilson was two holding penalties away from a 13/70/1 day in Week 3. He’s getting nearer, however is a decidedly boom-or-bust possibility towards Kansas City’s apparently elite defense. … Joique Bell might be bumped down if Reggie Bush (knee) keeps trending in the appropriate route, moved up if it doesn’t.

A struggling and gimpy Daryl Richardson (foot) is an uncompelling choice against the 49ers’ run protection, although it’s missing Aldon Smith and Patrick Willis. He’s a desperation FLEX play. … A 50-% participant by snaps for the first time in Week three, Giovani Bernard continues his effortless kick past BenJarvus Inexperienced-Ellis on the depth chart. … Hold your expectations low for Le’Veon Bell’s debut. Perhaps he’ll be instantly thrust into an each-down position, however it appears unlikely after he’s missed a lot time. He is a solid FLEX play, nevertheless. … Keep away from the Browns backfield. … Take a flier on Isaiah Pead.

WR Notes: Calvin Johnson scored his third landing Sunday. He scored his third touchdown on November 18 last season. … The Eagles’ protection misses tackles for a residing. Demaryius Thomas breaks them for a dwelling. You do the maths. … Julio Jones leads the NFL in receiving yards, and is third in yards from scrimmage. His 157 yards after the catch lead the league. … DeSean Jackson’s 18.9 yards per catch led all receivers with at the very least 10 receptions, whereas his seven grabs of 20-plus yards are tied for first with Antonio Brown. … Pierre Garcon’s 39 targets are third within the league behind Cecil Shorts and Jimmy Graham. He’s caught at least seven passes in all three games.

Anxious Torrey Smith doesn’t have a touchdown? You shouldn’t be. Baltimore’s No. 1 receiver has cleared 85 yards in all three video games, and has six catches of 20 yards or longer. He’s overdue to get loose for a rating, and Buffalo’s forest fireplace of a secondary gives the most effective alternative for pay dirt he’ll see all season. Smith is a WR1 for Week 4. … Antonio Brown was annoyed heading into Week three, however wasn’t precisely struggling. He’s caught no less than five passes in all three video games, and is now squaring off with a Vikings secondary that received torn up by Josh Gordon in Week 3, and Brandon Marshall in Week 2. Headed across the pond, the Steelers aren’t going to mess with the formulation that brought them their first offensive success of the season. … Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is as healthy as he’s been since Week 1, however a showdown with shutdown CB Darrelle Revis curbs his WR1 appeal.

A sport-time choice headed right into a rough matchup, Andre Johnson (shin) has the potential to tumble down the ranks. Johnson’s sturdiness is once more a difficulty. … Josh Gordon’s 19 Week 1 targets had been essentially the most for any receiver in a single recreation this season. It’s a number he’s unlikely to match again in 2013, let alone Sunday. Evidently, nonetheless, he proved his WR2 bonafides against the Vikings. Gordon might be a WR1 in comparatively short order. … Hakeem Nicks correctly observed that he “can’t throw the ball to (himself)” after his Week 3 doughnut. Count on Eli Manning to overcorrect this week. To not placate his frustrated wideout, however as a result of he has to if the Giants are going to avoid an 0-four begin. … Coming off three straight underwhelming efforts, Marques Colston isn’t a very robust breakout candidate against Brent Grimes and the Dolphins. … By the grace of garbage time, Cecil Shorts is essentially the most focused participant in the league via the primary three weeks. With Blaine Gabbert back on the controls for Week four, not even garbage time could also be sufficient to avoid wasting Shorts from his hopeless situation.

Dwayne Bowe’s drawback? He’s too good for Alex Smith, who doesn’t like looking greater than 6-eight yards past the line of scrimmage. Bowe likes to do his work deep, which could as nicely be 20,000 leagues beneath the sea to Smith. The Chiefs are going to have to begin manufacturing touches for their $fifty six million receiver closer to the LOS, however till they do, he’s a middling WR3, and a wasted talent. … Coming off a season-high snap rely, Roddy White would possibly finally be ready to erupt, although the Patriots’ secondary is formally legit. Taking part in by way of a high-ankle sprain, White has just seven catches on 10 targets. … T.Y. Hilton is shaping up as a boom-or-bust WR3, however the growth potential is excessive towards the Jaguars’ undermanned and overwhelmed secondary. … With Danny Amendola (groin) nonetheless out indefinitely, Julian Edelman remains a PPR superstar, however a normal-league “meh.”

Even towards the Seahawks’ robust secondary, DeAndre Hopkins might be bumped up the ranks if it turns into clear Andre Johnson (shin) shall be on a snap depend. … Take into account Miles Austin (hamstring) iffy with a touch of doubtful. His harm history makes it laborious to imagine he’ll play, but for now, Dallas is insisting he’ll. … Tavon Austin has 18 grabs through his first three video games, however is averaging just 6.6 yards per catch, and has a protracted of only 14. Sam Bradford isn’t getting Austin out into house. He’s a WR4, albeit one with room to grow. … The two touchdowns looked good final week, however Kenbrell Thompkins still managed to harness simply three-of-7 targets, making him 9-of-28 on the season. Thompkins has made strides, but isn’t yet a legit starter. … Monitor Ryan Broyles this weekend.

TE Notes: Julius Thomas seems due for a dud. He particularly seems attributable to get held out of the end zone. But these aren’t compelling sufficient causes to bet in opposition to him as he takes on a workforce with two struggling inside linebackers, and a good worse security duo. … With Miles Austin (hamstring) trying shaky, Jason Witten might be in for his first 10-plus target afternoon of the season. … Rob Gronkowski would already be the No. 2 tight end if we knew for certain he was going to play, but with the Pats, we’d not find out until inactives are announced. That’s an issue since New England is taking part in within the Sunday night time recreation. For now, pencil Gronk in — it’s something it’s important to do if there’s a chance he’ll play — but have a contingency ready for the fourth consecutive week.

Jordan Cameron’s 31 targets are second amongst all tight ends, while his 4 touchdowns are tied for first. He’s one or two more big weeks away from cementing himself as the every-week No. three total tight finish. … If Vernon Davis (hamstring) is energetic, you begin him and don’t look again. … Tony Gonzalez’s gradual start is formally a bit of a priority. He failed to benefit from a juicy Week three matchup in the Dolphins, and will now be squaring off with a Patriots workforce that routinely eliminates tight ends. So far this season, no workforce is allowing fewer fantasy points to tight ends than New England, although they’ve yet to sq. off with a talent better than Scott Chandler. It could be a wonderful signal for Gonzalez going ahead if he could finally have one thing like a 5/60/1 night time.

Martellus Bennett’s involvement in the sport plan appears poised to differ week to week, however he’s nonetheless top-of-the-line tight-end bets to seek out the top zone on a weekly basis. He’s Kyle Rudolph with more quantity. … Jared Cook dinner’s expertise is protecting him among the many TE1s, however the Rams’ unimaginative offense is limiting his upside. Sound acquainted? … Low-upside TE1 Brandon Myers has a tricky matchup in a Chiefs defense that’s to date been making the middle of the sector a tough place for tight ends to roam. … Expected to have his snap-count restrictions eliminated in his second week again, Heath Miller has critical upside towards a Vikings defense that’s gotten absolutely scorched by enemy tight ends up to now in 2013. … You need to have the ability to do better than Owen Daniels towards the Seahawks.

Coby Fleener is an upside chase until additional discover. He hasn’t had much consistency on the NFL level. … For now, Charles Clay is still only a bench stash, but he’s nonetheless one of many extra intriguing TE2s. … Per Professional Football Focus, Kyle Rudolph is averaging simply 0.ninety seven yards per cross route run, placing him behind the likes of Scott Chandler and Delanie Walker, to call a few. He’s touchdown-or-bust. … Zach Miller is a particularly desperate touchdown chase. … Marcedes Lewis (groin) is lastly set to make his 2013 debut. Blaine Gabbert figures to make it forgettable. … With two scores in three weeks, Joseph Fauria remains somebody to control near the bottom of the ranks.

Ole Miss CB Cody Prewitt: ‘It’s about to get real for Texas’

(USA At this time Sports activities Photos)

The New York Giants have been keen to half methods with running again Brandon Jacobs because the group believed it had better choices this season.

However, after Andre Brown fractured his leg within the preseason finale and David Wilson fumbled twice in Week 1, New York had a change of heart.

Jacobs, who was a free agent, worked out with New York at the moment and re-signed with the team, in keeping with ESPN’s Dan Graziano. He reportedly signed a one-yr deal (terms of Jacobs’ contract were not disclosed).

To make room for Jacobs, New York positioned defensive end Adewale Ojomo on waivers.

Here is what Graziano had to say in regards to the signing:

The source also said one of the causes the Giants decided to signal Jacobs was his familiarity with their offense, notably their go-safety schemes. That is an area during which Wilson struggled final year and again Sunday night. The Giants imagine Jacobs may help mentor Wilson in that and different areas, in addition to presumably spell him on passing downs and possibly on the objective line.

Jacobs performed for the Giants from 2005 to 2011. He gained two Super Bowl titles earlier than joining the San Francisco 49ers in 2012. Jacobs was suspended by the crew before he was eventually released. He remained unsigned till right this moment.

Overall, Jacobs has rushed for 4,856 yards and fifty six touchdowns in his career.
