Five Raiders to watch in Week 7: Why Daryl Worley is key vs. Packers

Friday, October 18th, 2019

CB Daryl Worley Raiders coach Jon Gruden talked about expanding Daryl Worley's role during the bye week, and we'll find out exactly what that means against the Packers. We have some insight, however, that suggests Worley will roam around the defensive formation, from outside cornerback to safety to inside the box, adding another cover man to handle tight ends and running backs who can also play against the run. He's big enough at 6-foot-1, 215 pounds to handle those responsibilities, and that could help account for the Raiders' startling lack of linebacker depth with Vontaze Burfict suspended the rest of the season.

Bengals suspend OL Cordy Glenn, escalating already-bad situation

Friday, October 18th, 2019

The team said it would have no further comment on the situation. Based on reporting, this is a bad situation between Glenn and the Bengals. A second-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2012, Glenn is in his second season with Cincinnati, having been traded there in March 2018.

NFL notebook: Jets’ Thomas says Patriots’ stint a waste of time

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

New York Jets receiver Demaryius Thomas termed his short stint with the New England Patriots a "waste of time" and, in an interview with the New York Daily News, said the team was disrespectful to him. Thomas was released by the Patriots at the final roster cutdown and re-signed three days later before being traded to the Jets on Sept. 11. The two teams play on Monday night and there is no love lost on Thomas' part.

Woeful Mariners now only team never to reach World Series

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

The Washington Nationals are off to the World Series for the first time in franchise history after sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night, becoming the final National League team to reach the Fall Classic and leaving a single team with the distinction of never playing for a title. Not only do you have the longest playoff drought in professional sports, but you are now the only team that hasn't been to a World Series. Since the Mariners came into existence in 1977, there has been a void.

NFL DFS Bargains Week 7

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

Bargain Bin Week 7 Each week I search for the cheapest viable options for your DFS lineups at every position. The plays are geared toward cash games unless otherwise indicated and I do try to use a price ceiling of $7000/$6000 for QB, $6000/$5000 for RB/WR, and $5500/$4500 (FD/DK) for TE insomuch as possible. Quarterback I love getting my bargain players from games with high point totals, since QB fantasy points correlate well with implied team totals, and both of these guys fit that criteria in Week 7 (over/under 48.5 points, both small favorites).

Patriots waive QB Cody Kessler amid flurry of roster moves Tuesday

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

The New England Patriots had a busy day at practice with multiple players coming and going. Among the departures is quarterback Cody Kessler, who was waived by the Patriots on Tuesday, per the league's transactions wire. Kessler was signed to the Patriots' 53-man roster on Sept. 25, a few days before the Patriots beat the Buffalo Bills in Week 4.

Fantasy football Week 7 buy low/sell high: Trade Tom Brady

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

So with all of that being said, here's your list of buy-low and sell-high candidates for Week 7: BUY LOW Le'Veon Bell, RB, New York Jets: Bell's been OK so far this season, but definitely disappointing to those who drafted him expecting the elite production he's shown in the past. Now's the time to capitalize on that disappointment as Bell's schedule for the rest of the season is extremely attractive. I wouldn't bet against him being a top-5 running back from here on out, especially now that Sam Darnold is back to stabilize the Jets offense.

Receiver Duke Williams revives career with Bills

Monday, October 14th, 2019

Duke Williams stopped dreaming of scoring his first NFL touchdown some three years ago, when the receiver essentially walked away from football. Williams had no desire to continue playing after going undrafted in 2016 and then being cut by the Los Angeles Rams before the start of the season. ''I wasn't thinking about football no more,'' Williams said Monday, when he rejoined the Buffalo Bills (4-1) for practice following the team's bye week.

Zay Jones pushing hard to learn Raiders offense, make instant impact

Monday, October 14th, 2019

ALAMEDA -- Zay Jones was an active, engaged member of the Buffalo Bills offense this season, until a Week 5 contest against the Titans. Jones had no idea that would be the last time he suited up for the team that drafted him. The East Carolina product was blindsided by the trade that sent him to the Raiders for a 2021 fifth-round NFL draft pick.

Fantasy football Week 7 waiver wire: Ben Watson a sneaky pickup at TE?

Monday, October 14th, 2019

In Week 7, he gets an atrocious Miami Dolphins defense that's allowed more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks than any NFL team. Allen is a legitimate QB1 who's available in essentially half of all leagues. Put your bids in now.
