Buccaneers schedule 2018: Tampa Bay will be challenged as breakout hopeful

  • Night net null The Buccaneers have a talented roster, but Tampa Bay has its work cut out with the list of teams on its 2018 schedule.Playing in a division that includes three playoff teams from last season is a good way to start in a hole. The Buccaneers have only two other 2017 postseason teams (Eagles and Steelers) on the docket, but they still face the fourth toughest schedule in the Night net with their opponents' combined winning percentage from last season at .531. And that's before you factor in the improvement teams like San Francisco and Chicago have made this offseason.

For a team on the rise like Tampa, that should be a good thing, but it might not be the case this year. Last year's conference losers in San Francisco and Chicago have improved on paper and easily can give Tampa Bay a run for its money in those matchups.Biggest breaks: The schedule overall is tough, but the Buccaneers caught a few breaks in drawing some of their more difficult opponents at home. Aside from the Bucs' divisional foes, the Eagles, Steelers and 49ers all have to travel to Raymond James Stadium. Tampa Bay of late has not had the greatest home-field advantage, but anything helps.Bottom line: The Buccaneers have been the same team for a few years — on the cusp of breaking out. But that breakout hasn't happened yet, and thei夜网论坛r 2018 slate won't help. Having to play six games against the Saints, Panthers and Falcons is rough enough, but throw in teams like the Eagles and Steelers, and it's tough to see a winning season for Tampa Bay.

    Falcons must fix Matt Ryan, offense — or quickly fade in NFC

  • Night net null null null null What's still wrong with the Falcons' offense? Atlanta started the 2018 Night net season almost exactly how it ended the 2017 playoffs: losing a frustratingly low-scoring game in Philadelphia, with Matt Ryan unable to hit Julio Jones with the game on the line in the final seconds.The divisional round went to the Eagles 15-10. Week 1 on Thursday night went to the Eagles 18-12. In a game full of accepted penalties and the questionable, inconsistent officiating that has become synonymous with the Night net no matter how much it changes its rules, the ugliest part was how Atlanta blew plenty of opportunities in a critical early game for the NFC playoff race. FALCONS-EAGLES: SN live blog | Score, statsRyan, fresh off signing a mega-contract extension in the offseason that briefly made him the league's highest-paid quarterback, didn't play well. The final numbers (21-of-43 passing, 251 yards, one interception, four sacks, 57.4 rating) were further removed from his 2016 MVP form than anything seen from him in a down 2017 season. Related News Week 1 Night net picks against spread: Browns upset Steelers; Patriots tame Texans Week 1 Night net power rankings: Saints, Vikings begin 2018 as class of league He struggled with his arm strength, footwork and accuracy while making a lot of unforced errant throws. Without a monster effort  (10 catches, 169 yards receiving, 11 yards rushing) from his go-to wide receiver Jones — in every place except the red zone — Ryan would have looked worse. Consider that Ryan and Jones couldn't connect on nine other targets in the game.Still, it would be silly to put all the blame on Ryan for the offense's rough night against a tough Eagles defense in a hostile environment or say it was mostly tied to rust from the first-string offense not getting enough reps together in the preseason.PHOTOS: Best images from Week 1The troubling thing for the Falcons, whose expectations are as high as displacing the Eagles as Super Bowl champions this season, is that two of the things that kept them from returning to the Super Bowl last season — shaky play-calling and a shocking lack of execution — haven't changed. When Ryan was the best player in the league, they had the No. 1 scoring offense and the No. 2 yardage offense. Last year, they plummeted to No. 15 in points, which was poor in relat[......]

    Sam Darnold's resilience tested yet again as Jets visit Browns

  • Night net null null Sam Darnold’s football career has been highlighted by his ability to bounce back.After beginning his redshirt freshman season at USC on the bench, Darnold started at quarterback in the team’s fourth game of the season, a 31-27 loss against a ranked Utah team on the road. But that was the last time the Trojans lost that season. Darnold led them to nine straight victories, including wins over No. 4 Washington on the road and No. 5 Penn State in the Rose Bowl. In his first Night net game with the Jets a couple weeks ago, Darnold had to bounce back after his first career pass resulted in a pick-six against the Lions. After that, the 21-year-old completed 17 of his last 21 passes, threw two touchdowns and led New York to a 48-17 win.In Week 3 against the Browns, Darnold will have to bounce back yet again. He threw two interceptions in the Jets’ home debut last week, a 20-12 loss to the Dolphins. WEEK 3 Night net PICKS:Against the spread | Straight up"Every loss that we have as a team, every loss that I have as an individual, whether it’s a game or whether it’s a play, I’m going to take that as a lesson that I can learn and not a loss," Darnold said after the loss to Miami. "I’m going to come back and probably on that same play, if that same thing happens, probably won’t throw it next time."​Darnold’s second interception in the Dolphins game came in the end zone after the Jets had forced a turnover at the opponents’ 12-yard line. Looking to throw a touchdown to Terrelle Pryor on the first play of the possession, Darnold threw an interception, instead.Though Pryor told media the pick was his fault, Darnold accepted accountability when asked about the play."We were on the same page; just have to execute a little bit better,” Darnold said of the connection with Pryor. "Whenever you get a turnover in the red zone … you want to be able to put that one in the end zone. We've got to make them pay for turning the ball over, and we just gave it right back to them. That’s not something you want to do."Again, I put that on myself. I could have put the ball up a little more, give (Pryor) a chance maybe to go up and snag it with his big body and his long arms."Added Pryor: “It's not (Darnold's) fault. I'm telling you guys right now. It doesn't mean anything to me because he's taking it and he knows that it was my fault. But I can appreciate that.”WATCH: All of Darnold's throws in Week 2The tone of Darnold’s words the day after the loss to Miami made it clear he was not harping on his mistakes. Instead, the QB had moved on to the Week 3 challenge in Cleveland. And this particular week is not normal for any Night net player, let alone a rookie passer. The Jets are traveling and playing on a short week. Th[......]

    A humbled Lamar Jackson makes for a potentially great Ravens QB

  • Night net null null Lamar Jackson has played more Night net preseason snaps this year than any other first-round rookie quarterback. Of the QBs in that group, he clearly needs the most work before he sees the field in the regular season.Jackson also has shown the Ravens the humility necessary to use the adversity to his advantage.In Monday night's win over the Colts, Jackson turned in his most efficient passing (7-of-15, 49 yards, TD, 76.8 passer rating, one sack, no turnovers) and running (4 rushes, 26 yards) effort thus far. He had to overcome more of the accuracy issues he's having in the Night net. Handling pressure, being patient and going through progressions are the areas in which Jackson has improved most since his debut against the Bears three weeks ago. With two more preseason games left, he offered a brutally honest assessment of his play."I don't feel like I've performed at a high level yet," Jackson told reporters after Monday's game. He was especially upset because he didn't feel like he prepared well enough to enter the game after Joe Flacco's sharp starting stint, saying, "I came out cold. ... I got to learn that when the vet is up, I have to stay warm through the process夜网论坛. I didn't do a good job tonight. I started off slow, incompleting a lot of balls that I didn't like."But I ended up throwing a touchdown."START OR SIT:Which is better for rookie Night net QB?Jackson is in a different situation than those faced by the rookies who were drafted well ahead of him at No. 32. The Jets and Bills are expecting Sam Darnold and Josh Allen, respectively, to be on the field when it counts soon. The Cardinals hope Josh Rosen won't be far behind. The Browns — at first, at least — are sticking with Baker Mayfield as a strong backup.Even with Jackson's stacked college resume that included dazzling turns as a Heisman winner from Louisville, lumping him in with the other first-round QBs brings unfair expectations. Part of those expectations is the idea that Flacco is one of the league's most maligned QBs, and it will not take much for Jackson to displace the starter.​Flacco has been motivated to play better, and he should not be compared to likes of Josh McCown, Nathan Peterman and Sam Bradford, the QBs ahead of those other rookies. The competition in Baltimore — or lack thereof — was always stacked against Jackson.But time could be the biggest thing on the rookie's side.Nobody can blame Jackson for being disappointed in himself. His completion percentage (41.9) and yards per attempt (4.7) stand out as the most unacceptable numbers. Many rookies are humbled this quickly in the Night net.But a good signal that a player eventually will do well in the Night net is his attitude in coming back stronger.2018 Nig[......]

    Week 1 Fantasy Football Rankings: Running back

  • Night net There's an elephant in the room with our Week 1 fantasy running back rankings -- or, perhaps more accurately, there's an elephant not in the room. Le'Veon Bell's holdout is becoming more of a worry, and even if he's back and active for Week 1, rust could be an issue like last year (47 total yards vs. Cleveland in Week 1). Of course, you're still going to start him, but his relatively low ranking in a favorable matchup reminds us that anything can happen with RBs early in the seasonBell isn't the only worry. LeSean McCoy, , Jay Ajayi, and Marlon Mack are dealing with injuries, and there are plenty of unsettled committee situations that figure to drive fantasy owners nuts. Nothing is easy at this position, and with matchups (and the strength of offensive lines) still a relative question mark in many cases, defaulting to known studs is usually the preferred strategy. Week 1 Rankings:Quarterback | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerBut we know there will be breakouts. Royce Freeman? Jamaal Williams? Kerryon Johnson? Bilal Powell? Adrian Peterson? Could be anyone. We do our best to break down fantasy's most important position ahead of fantasy's craziest week. UPDATE: With Le'Veon Bell out, he will fall out of our Week 1 rankings. James Conner will take his place and should have RB2 upside.Reminder: We'll update our rankings throughout the week and add player analysis, so please check back often.

    Night net Week 1 Weather Updates: Wind, rain affecting fantasy football start 'em, sit 'em decisions (especially Steelers and Browns)

  • Night net The Week 1 Night net weather forecasts -- well, at least the windy, rainy forecast in Cleveland for the Steelers-Browns game -- are sure to affect fantasy football start 'em, sit 'em decisions. The Steelers-Browns matchup isn't the only game that could see wind and 夜网论坛rain, though, with conditions in Carolina for Cowboys-Panthers and Baltimore for Bills-Ravens potentially being worrisome enough to drop players in our rankings.The rest of the games look mostly clear, with temperatures relatively mild for this time of year. Ideally, all games would be played in stadiums with roofs, like the Jets-Lions, 49ers-Vikings, Redskins-Cardinals, Bengals-Colts, and Buccaneers-Saints, but that would be too easy for fantasy owners, wouldn't it? Week 1 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerNight net Week 1 weather updatesThe big worry is in Cleveland for the Steelers-Browns game, where heavy rain started falling on Saturday night and reportedly isn't going to let up through Sunday afternoon. Winds in the 20-mph range will be steady throughout the game, with gusts up to 30-40 mph. At this point, it's tough to trust anyone other than the running backs and Pittsburgh's D/ST. Of course, only an insane person would bench Antonio Brown (right?), but JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jarvis Landry, Josh Gordon, David Njoku, and Ben Roethlisberger seem much riskier. You could argue that Landry's quick, short routes will still be effective in the rain, and anytime the field is wet, you could always see a defensive back slip and allow a huge play, but if the rain is really as heavy as currently predicted, it's tough to imagine much passing. Even Brown is a question mark. Far be it from us to tell you to bench your first-round pick, but watch the live look-ins closely right up until game time. One thing we can advise: Don't bother with Chris Boswell. Things won't be quite as bad in Baltimore for the Bills-Ravens, where the rain is expected to be steady but not as heavy. Winds will be  around 15-20 mph, making life somewhat difficult for quarterbacks and receivers (though still manageable). Michael Crabtree is really the only receiver from this game "locked" into lineups (with John Brown and Kelvin Benjamin being on the bubble), but even Crabtree shouldn't be considered untouchable if you have other good options. The real question is whether to start Justin Tucker. Because you probably don't want to carry two kickers or drop Tucker in Week 1, we think you can risk it, but we also can't blame you if want someone a little safer.The weather in Charlotte for the Cowboys-Panthers will be the mildest of the three games listed here. Winds will be low, and only light, scattered showers are supposed to pop up through the game. It doesn't look like you need to worry about Cam Newton, Dak Prescott, Devin Funchess, or anyone else you were counting on from this game.[......]

    Alabama pastor cuts up Nike gear during sermon

  • Night net null null A pastor at a Baptist church in 夜网论坛Mobile, Ala., destroyed his Nike gear during a sermon to protest the company's recent advertising campaign centered around Colin Kaepernick.The Rev. Mack Morris took a pair of scissors and cut his Nike headband and a wristband in front of a packed church during his weekly Sunday sermon.

    Fantasy PPR Rankings: Top 200 cheat sheet

  • Night net null Is there really that big of a difference between PPR leagues and standard leagues in fantasy football? Yes and no. Certain players who tend to get more receptions rise in the rankings, which alters position tiers and creates a new batch of sleepers and busts. Your general draft strategy shouldn't change too much, though quarterbacks as a whole lose a little value since there are more points to be scored and they won't score any of them. Of course, if your draft applet doesn't have a separate set of PPR rankings and standard rankings, things can go south in a hurry. That's why we recommend adding our PPR Top 200 to your cheat sheet as a fail-safe.For the most part, the very best players are still the very best players. Sure, we drop Ezekiel Elliott, who's No. 1 in our standard rankings, to No. 4 in our PPR rankings, but he obviously remains a clear-cut RB1 and cornerstone of any fantasy team. Once you get outside the top 20, however, things can change. Bruising RBs like Jordan Howard drop while glorified receivers like Christian McCaffrey rise. Larry Fitzgerald, who might not rack up monster yards or a ton of touchdowns, is a much more consistent player, while a big-play guy like Marvin Jones takes a slight hit. A steady stream of targets usually results in at least a few extra points every week, and those can add up. Week 1 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerFurthermore, PPR leagues give specialists -- mainly third-down backs -- legitimate fantasy value on a weekly basis. Guys like Theo Riddick, Tarik Cohen, and Chris Thompson have much more value in PPR leagues, but it can be tough to figure out just how much of a bump they should receive. After all, consistent receiving points are nice, but touchdowns still rule in most leagues. If you're playing in a PPR league for the first time, it's easy to overvalue receiving backs and undervalue traditional runners, and if you don't show a little restraint, you'll wind up with a bunch of players who rarely get into the end zone.

    Starting Tyrod Taylor would be Browns' best QB decision in 20 years

  • Night net null The Browns will go into the 2018 Night net season with their 29th starting quarterback in 20 years. For now, given coach Hue Jackson has said it at least three times, Tyrod Taylor is likely to start in Week 1 over Baker Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.If so, Cleveland finally will go into a season without being clueless at the most important position. Starting with their Tim Couch selection at the top of the 1999 Night net Draft, the Browns have consistently whiffed on their QB decisions over the last two decades. They've either played rookies too early or waited too long. They've gone through veteran stopgap after veteran stopgap. In the best times, they've gotten lucky with Kelly Holcomb, their lone playoff starter, and Derek Anderson, their lone Pro Bowl starter. Although Mayfield has a higher upside than that of the four first-rounders who came before him (Couch, Brady Quinn, Brandon Weeden and Johnny Manziel), Jackson is right in not rushing the rookie into action. Taylor is not some recycled starting option; he's a legitimate one who suddenly puts the Browns in the top half of the league when it comes to starting QBs.BENDER: 10 times Browns could have fixed their quarterback problem Related News Start or sit: Which is better for Night net rookie franchise QB? Taylor turns 29 in August, and going into his fourth season as a starter, that puts him in his prime playing years. He was good enough to earn a Pro Bowl selection in his first season with Buffalo in 2015 and has put up comparable numbers since. He arrives in Cleveland fresh off his first playoff action as a starter.Taylor's experience with the Bills also helps him prepare for his situation with the Browns. The ridiculous benching of Taylor in favor of Nathan Peterman last season sets up the former to work against the threat of Mayfield."I'm going to continue to keep pushing, continue to keep working the way I do — ready to take my game to the next level," Taylor told reporters as OTAs opened this week. "I've been able to take steps in the right direction each year that I've been able to play the game. So I'm excited about the opportunity that I have here. There's so much talent on this team and guys that are in the right mind-set."In Buffalo, beyond the running of LeSean McCoy and himself, Taylor worked with a limited offense. The lack of threats in the Bills' receiving corps, further hampered by the trade of Sammy Watkins last offseason, are part of the reason Taylor's yards per attempt saw a big drop.In Cleveland, Taylor will get to flex his big arm with Josh Gordon as his No. 1 outside receiver. At the same time, he can maintain his efficiency on shorter routes with inside wide[......]
