Friday, October 19th, 2018

Carlos Hyde will no longer wear the brown and orange for the rest of the season. Most fantasy players and sports fans alike weren’t prepared for the bombshell news that arrived on Friday.

Friday, October 19th, 2018

Struggling with injury-hit running backs, the Jacksonville Jaguars obtained fifth-year NFL rusher Carlos Hyde from the Cleveland Browns on Friday for a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Jaguars, who share the AFC South division lead with Houston and Tennessee at 3-3, have dropped two games in a row without Fournette, who has been nagged by a hamstring injury. Backup T.J.

Week 7 Best Bets Preview

Friday, October 19th, 2018

Rich Hribar and Raymond Summerlin bring you their best bets every Friday of the NFL season as well as a preview of Sunday Night Football. Rich: The NFL flexed this game for good reason as it has the highest game total of any Week 7 contest.  The Chiefs are second in the NFL in points per game (35.8) while the Bengals rank sixth (29.0).  Not only do both of these teams score buckets of points, but they have also regularly outperformed their expected total as both teams have outscored their implied team total five times this season, tied for the most in the league.

Coach Steve Wilks is to discuss the move later in the day.

Kansas native Bowyer plans for plenty of racing Sunday

Friday, October 19th, 2018

One of the first things Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach did when he learned their game against Cincinnati had been moved to Sunday night was pick up his phone and dial Clint Bowyer. Veach had met the Stewart-Haas Racing driver when he joined other members of the Chiefs for a visit to Kansas Speedway in May. The two hit it off, keeping in touch throughout the summer and into the fall, and built a friendship based on mutual passions: racing and football.

Friday, October 19th, 2018

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Za’Darius Smith (90) and his teammates make up one of the best defenses in the NFL. The best team we’re not talking about enough is the Baltimore Ravens.
