Week 14 Fantasy Busts: Jeff Wilson Jr., Spencer Ware among risky starts in rough matchups

first_imgChicago Bears vs. Rams (Iyer). Don’t be arrogant thinking they are matchup proof against that offense. Todd Gurley can keep L.A. from throwing too much and making mistakes.Full Week 14 D/ST rankingsBaltimore Ravens @ Chiefs (Lutovsky). The Ravens D/ST has proven to be a front-runner this year, and even though it came through in a fairly tough matchup last week in Atlanta, there’s no way you can trust them in Kansas City. Aside from the Week 11 anomaly when the Chiefs turned it over five times and allowed two defensive TDs to the Rams, Kansas City has only once allowed even five fantasy points to a D/ST. You can’t pick a bust now. You just can’t. With most fantasy football leagues now into the fantasy playoffs (and for those that aren’t, it’s the final week of the regular season), teams are in do-or-die mode. Picking busts in Week 14 can ultimately sink your championship hopes, so it’s important to be aware of matchups — especially for recent waiver pickups like Jeff Wilson Jr. and Spencer Ware —  when making start ’em, sit ’em decisions.Last time out, our bust picks were generally fairly accurate. At running back, Carlos Hyde put up a complete dud while Sony Michel and Peyton Barber were only middle of the road, at best. Both Dak Prescott and Baker Mayfield had mediocre output at QB, though some garbage-time production saved Mayfield from a completely devastating outing. And in terms of pass catchers, A.J. Green’s injury confirmed that he was a bust, so our bold pick there ended up being right. We’ll try to carry over that success into Week 14. Week 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerThese busts are just here to help guide you. If you truly want to start one, go right ahead. Just know that the matchup may not be as favorable on paper as you might think it is. For our Week 14 sleeper picks, go here.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 14 fantasy football busts: Running backsSpencer Ware, Chiefs vs. Ravens (Jacob Camenker). Ware is the new lead back in Kansas City, but he is in an extremely difficult matchup with a Ravens defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points to RBs this season. Considering that Ware only generated 52 total yards on 15 touches against the Raiders’ poor run defense last week, it may be difficult for him to get going against Baltimore.Josh Adams, Eagles @ Cowboys (Vinnie Iyer). Darren Sproles and Corey Clement beingsprinkled in more doesn’t bode well for him ahead of facing a good power run defense.Jeff Wilson Jr., 49ers vs. Broncos (Lutovsky). Wilson will start in place of Matt Breida (ankle), and after a solid Week 13 showing, plenty of fantasy owners are likely looking forward to using him. But keep in mind Alfred Morris will likely be active this week, which will take away some touches. Plus, Denver’s run defense has shaped up since allowing back-to-back 200-yard rushers earlier this year. Since Week 6, Denver hasn’t allowed any RB to top 82 yards, nor has it allowed any RB rushing touchdowns. Kareem Hunt is the only running back to score against the Broncos in that span, which is saying something since they’ve faced David Johnson, Lamar Miller, Melvin Gordon, James Conner, and Joe Mixon.​WEEK 14 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsWeek 14 fantasy football busts: QuarterbacksCarson Wentz, Eagles @ Cowboys (Camenker). The Cowboys have been the eighth-best fantasy defense against QBs this year, and they just limited Drew Brees to fewer than 10 fantasy points at home. Carson Wentz has been struggling in recent weeks, and his outlook shouldn’t improve in a tough matchup with the Cowboys. Kirk Cousins, Vikings @ Seahawks (Iyer). It’s a prime-time game against a good pressure D on the road. It’s likely Cousins will struggle to put viable enough numbers with volume again in a big game.Jared Goff, Rams @ Bears. (Lutovsky). Goff has been mostly matchup-proof, but so has the Bears defense. Chicago allows the second-fewest fantasy points to QBs, and over the past five games, they’ve allowed a 5:10 TD-to-INT ratio to quarterbacks. Goff still has a decent floor, but his ceiling is certainly lower than usual.Full Week 14 QB rankingsMORE WEEK 14 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderWeek 14 fantasy football busts: Wide receiversAdam Humphries, Buccaneers vs. Saints (Camenker). Humphries has at least 54 yards and a TD in each of the past three weeks. But as a wise man once pointed out to me, players like Humphries simply do not score in four straight games. He has some yardage upside against a leaky Saints defense, but it seems more likely that the team will attack them on the outside with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin (like they did in Week 1). So, Humphries may not live up to his WR3 billing this week.Alshon Jeffery, Eagles @ Cowboys (Iyer). He just doesn’t look good and a matchup with Byron Jones doesn’t feel good — especially with Golden Tate suddenly gaining more trust.DeVante Parker, Dolphins vs. Patriots (Lutovsky). Go ahead, get excited about Parker after he scored last week. Spoiler alert: He’s going to flop this week. He always does. Maybe he has a chance if Danny Amendola (knee) is out again, but otherwise…nah.Full Week 14 WR rankingsWeek 14 fantasy football busts: Tight endsJordan Reed, Redskins vs. Giants (Camenker). Mark Sanchez is the new quarterback in Washington. That’s a downgrade to all skill-position weapons, and Reed is a risky play as a result.Cameron Brate, Buccaneers vs. Saints (Iyer). New Orleans has been solid against the position all season (see the Zach Ertz game) so he is very hard to trust.Kyle Rudolph, Vikings @ Seahawks (Lutovsky). After a moment in the sun in Week 12, Rudolph flopped in a favorable matchup in Week 13, catching all three of his targets for 38 yards. The Seahawks allow the eighth-fewest fantasy points to TEs, so there’s no real reason to trust Rudolph.Full Week 14 TE rankingsWeek 14 fantasy busts: DefensesMinnesota Vikings @ Seahawks (Camenker). It’s always tough to play in Seattle, and Russell Wilson has been playing very well as of late. If the Vikings can’t get pressure on him, they will struggle to generate any sort of points, as Wilson has only thrown two picks since Week 3.last_img read more

Which Football Club in BiH was ranked the best at the end of 2016?

first_imgIn 2016, the FC Sarajevo was the best ranked BiH club on UEFA’s ranking.Sarajevo is on the 250th place with a coefficient of 5.300. Behind Sarajevo is Željezničar, on the 269th place with a coefficient of 4.800. Although neither of these teams performed on the European scene in the past season, they still have more points than all other BiH clubs.The failure to qualify for European championships certainly influenced the poorer ranking of the clubs in comparison with the year before, when both teams ended the season on higher positions than now. Both premier league clubs from Sarajevo cannot allow themselves not to qualify for the European competitions this year as well, because that would further influence the ranking at the end of the year.First on the list is Real Madrid, followed by Bayern and Barcelona. Complete list and ranking of clubs is available here.When it comes to other BiH clubs, Zrinjski is currently 300th (4.050), while Široki Brijeg is on the 318th place (3.550). Olimpic, Sloboda and Radnik have the identical coefficient of 1.550 and they are on the 409th place. These clubs played fewer matches than the other premier league clubs and therefore their coefficient is lower.(Source: hayat.ba)last_img read more

Lealiifano inspired by the smile of his son

first_imgLealiifano today spoke publicly for the first time since returning to rugby and revealed the shining light that spurned him on while pushing through rigorous chemotherapy treatment in Melbourne.”It helped me massively to know that he had zero awareness of what was going on,” Lealiifano said of his son.”To have him come into hospital and see his dad with no hair one day, no hair, no eyebrows and he still smiles and knows who you are, it’s truly uplifting hey.”You look in the mirror and you’re actually sick but then you see your son and he makes you smile.”Keeping him close to me was something that motivated me and inspired me to get better.”To be a dad and make it to his first birthday meant a lot.”Lealiifano’s story has inspired a nation.Struck down with a leukaemia diagnosis in August 2016, his return to rugby was something that coach Stephen Larkham always believed was a matter of when, not if.That belief, along with the support of friends, family, fans and countless others, who Lealiifano went to great extent to thank today, was another motivating factor in his journey back to full health.”He (Larkham) was probably the one person that from day one, he was always believing that I would get back and play,” Lealiifano said.”Knowing that in the back of my mind, that someone was there that truly believed I would make it – he never wavered off that and it really inspired me and motivated me.”Knowing that someone truly, truly believed that I could get back and play footy again and then to run out in the quarter final against the Hurricanes was truly special,” Lealiifano said.The 29-year-old was also stoic in saying he would go through the treatment 10 times over, such is the impact this battle has had on his take on life.”Just my outlook on life – rugby is a small part of it but my perspective changed, obviously, when I had a child,” he said.”Then when you get leukaemia and go through that, everything changes even more.”I’m really, really, really grateful and I’ve said this before – I would go this through 10 times again to be the person I am today.”Reports in recent days indicate Lealiifano is considering a move to Ulster to get game time back in his legs before the 2018 season but no such deal has been locked in, according to the man himself.A stint with the Vikings come NRC time is an options, as is a move to other overseas clubs, but Lealiifano hasn’t thought about any potential Wallabies involvement down the track.He’s simply focused on staying fit and healthy, with the battle of a lifetime now firmly in the rearview mirror.”They always say that when you are in remission you have beaten it but they don’t actually say you have beaten it until roughly two years,” he said.”One thing that they said they can never guarantee is that the cancer won’t come back.”They can give you every chance but it’s just a matter of trying to live each day the best you can.”last_img read more
