#1 There’s little more frustrating to a fantasy player than von zhangzk 07.11.2019 03:39

That’s what happened Sunday with running back Leonard Fournette of Jacksonville and tight end Zach Ertz of Philadelphia.Sure Chris Lindstrom Jersey , Fournette missed the Jaguars’ last game before the bye with an ankle sprain, but all signs were that he would play in Week 9. The Eagles told us all week that Ertz was recovered from a hamstring strain, but he couldn’t get the injury to loosen up during pregame warmups and he was forced to miss the contest.Situations like these illustrate the importance of having a bench that can cover late injuries. You want to make sure that you’re covered under just about any injury circumstance. The last thing you want to have to do is go to the waiver wire 90 minutes before the games start Sunday hoping you can find a last minute replacement. Sure, there might be a gift player available, but odds are you will just be picking bones off a waiver carcass.Here’s who you should be looking at for Week 10:MARQISE LEE, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars (43 percent owned)Lee makes this list for the second week in a row. He is miscast as a WR1 for an NFL team but he’s the best of what the Jaguars have since Allen Robinson was lost for the season with an ACL tear. The Jags are a run-first team but with safeties creeping up toward the line of scrimmage in order to stop Fournette or Chris Ivory, Lee will never see double coverage or a safety over the top. He’s a solid WR3.DEDE WESTBROOK, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars (16 percent)It’s extremely dangerous to rely on rookie wide receivers who have missed time due to injury. We have no idea if they know the entire route tree or what kind of rapport they have with the QB, but what we do know with Westbrook is that he was close to being active in Week 9 and will almost certainly be active this week. He could have a bigger role than expected right away due to the lack of playmakers in the Jacksonville passing game and should be worth a pickup.ROBERT WOODS, WR http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/kaleb-mcgary-jersey , Los Angeles Rams (24 percent)How many people realize that the Rams are second in the NFL in points scored (263)? Shouldn’t we all want a piece of this offense? Woods was initially signed by the Rams during free agency to be their WR1, but was sort of forgotten about when the team drafted Cooper Kupp and traded for Sammy Watkins. Well, Kupp has been inconsistent and Watkins is barely startable in fantasy leagues. Woods has been the WR you can most rely on and one would think the passing offense may only get better, as quarterback Jared Goff gains experience and confidence with each game.DANNY WOODHEAD, RB, Baltimore Ravens (36 percent)We are at the point in the season where players who were injured early and placed on injured reserve could be on their way back to the lineup. Woodhead was signed during free agency to be the back who would catch four to six passes out of the backfield each game as a safety valve for QB Joe Flacco. Woodhead could play this week and certainly no later than Week 11. He had success in the past and could be a boon to teams down the stretch. One worry, however, could be that he plays a similar role as Buck Allen, so make sure not to break the bank for him as these backs could cannibalize each other.ROD SMITH, RB, Dallas Cowboys (14 percent)No one knows what will happen with Ezekiel Elliott. What we do know is that the next chapter in this courtroom drama will be heard Tuesday. Should the court once again uphold the suspension, it’s almost a free for all in the Dallas backfield. While Alfred Morris and/or Darren McFadden could get shots at the starting job Kendall Sheffield Jersey , it’s not written in stone that they will get the job done. Some experts believe Smith is the best fit for this run offense and will get the starting job eventually. The bottom line is, if you have a dead spot on your roster, does it really hurt you to pick up Smith just in case he does end up the starter? No, and he could be the type of player that ends up winning a league.——This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com The Texas Rangers were great until the rain showed up. After that, they were holding on.

The Rangers led 5-0 when heavy showers forced a 29-minute rain delay in the top of the fourth inning Thursday night. The first batter after the delay hit a two-run homer to give the Rangers a 7-0 lead, but it was all Detroit Tigers after that.

The Tigers had the winning run at the plate with no one out in the ninth inning, but closer Keone Kela retired the next three batters to finish off a 7-5 victory and snap a three-game losing streak.

The Rangers didn’t arrive in Detroit until the early hours of Thursday morning after an extra-inning loss to the Astros the previous night.

”We had a tough night last night and some tough travel, but our guys showed up tonight,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. ”We needed to get a win to gain some momentum and gain some confidence.”

Yovani Gallardo (3-0) got the win, giving up four runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out two while winning his third straight start.

Kela allowed a run in the ninth – the first he’s given up in 12 career innings against Detroit – before finishing off his 21st save.

Matthew Boyd allowed a season-high seven runs and seven hits in four innings. He is 0-3 with a 10.59 ERA in his last four starts.

”Everyone goes through good stretches and bad stretches at this level, and a lot of it depends on luck http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/john-cominsky-jersey ,” he said. ”Once the game is over, you have to put it away and focus on getting ready to take the ball in five days.”

Tigers bench coach Steve Liddle, who managed while Ron Gardenhire recovered from the heat exhaustion that caused him to leave Wednesday’s loss in Chicago, wasn’t pleased with Boyd’s pitch selection.

”He never threw his fastball, so they were sitting on his soft stuff all night,” Liddle said. ”They saw what he was doing and made adjustments, but he never made any adjustments to counter that.

”You can’t throw the same thing over and over and expect to win games.”

Detroit lost is third straight and dropped to 2-14 since June 17.

”We were down a touchdown early and we had the winning run at the plate in the ninth,” Liddle said. ”That’s something positive we can take from this.”

The Rangers took a 2-0 lead in the second inning when Gallo became one of the few players to clear Comerica Park’s right-field stands with a home run. Gallo came into the game hitting .191 with 20 homers.

Nomar Mazara made it 3-0 with an RBI grounder in the third, and Tigers third baseman Ronny Rodriguez misplayed Adrian Beltre’s grounder to allow a fourth run to score.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s fourth-inning RBI single extended the Rangers’ lead to 5-0 on the final pitch before a 29-minute rain delay. The game had started 15 minutes late due to a brief rain shower.

On Boyd’s fifth pitch after play resumed, Guzman hit a two-run homer to put Texas ahead by seven.

The Tigers made it 7-3 in the bottom of the fourth on RBI singles by John Hicks, Jim Adduci and Rodriguez, but Gallardo got Jose Iglesias to hit into an inning-ending double play.

”It’s tough coming out of the rain delay Qadree Ollison Jersey ,” Gallardo said. ”We were ready to start the game and it rained, and then I had to stay loose through the second one. I gave up those three runs, but we got out of it.”

Goodrum homered in the sixth to make it 7-4.

Rodriguez started the ninth with an infield single and Iglesias reached on an error by third baseman Jurickson Profar. Victor Reyes followed with an RBI single to make it 7-5, but pinch-hitter Jeimer Candelario bounced into a force at second.

Kela struck out Nicholas Castellanos and retired Goodrum to end the game.


Rangers: RHP Chris Martin (groin) was placed on the 10-day disabled list and RHP Ricardo Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock. … LHP Martin Perez (elbow) was scheduled to make his third rehab start for Round Rock on Thursday. Perez has not pitched for the Rangers this season after elbow surgery.

Tigers: Gardenhire was told by doctors to stay in the air-conditioned clubhouse with the heat index approaching 100 degrees at game time. Temperatures are forecast to be much cooler in Detroit on Friday. … RHP Drew VerHagen (broken nose) is expected to make one more rehab appearance for Triple-A Toledo before rejoining the Tigers.


The win was Banister’s 300th as a manager in his 574th game, making him the fastest manager to 300 wins in Rangers history. ”It’s a nice milestone for the organization and the ball club,” he said. ”I’ve been fortunate enough to be granted a great opportunity here.”


Bartolo Colon (5-5, 4.76) will try to break a tie with Dennis Martinez for most wins by a pitcher born in Latin America when he starts against the Tigers on Friday. Colon is the last active major-league player to have played at Tiger Stadium, which closed in 1999. Jordan Zimmermann (3-0, 3.91) is scheduled to start for Detroit.
