NLDS Game 4 of Nats-Cubs rained out, set to play Wednesday

The showers came a little late, but the rain that soaked Wrigley Field and washed out Game 4 of the NL Division Series followed Tuesday’s forecast pretty closely.

Instead, Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker delivered the biggest surprise of the day.

Baker announced after the rainout that he will stay with Tanner Roark for Wednesday’s must-win game against the Chicago Cubs instead of giving the ball to ace Stephen Strasburg on regular rest. Jake Arrieta pitches for the Cubs in his return from a right hamstring injury.

From the latest on A.J. Green, Chris Hogan and more, Mike Clay has the information you need to make the right fantasy football decisions this week.
The Cardinals have had major troubles running the football since the David Johnson wrist injury in Week 1, and that’s partly because the replacements weren’t, well, David Johnson, but also the offensive line isn’t performing well. Chris Johnson, who had some bountiful moments in his fine career and played competently as recently as 2015, which is also the last time Peterson did, was cut Tuesday to make room. Chris Johnson was averaging 2.5 yards per carry this season. Will Peterson really be much of an upgrade?

Well, as one might expect, it’s tough to be optimistic about this trade altering the fantasy landscape. Peterson is healthy and remains in fine shape, but the Cardinals are last in the NFL in rushing yards for a reason, and it probably wasn’t solely about personnel. In theory, Peterson will see considerably more volume than he got with the Saints, so the trade should elevate expectations to a degree. Peterson Cheap NFL Jerseys China was never a great fit with New Orleans, not when Mark Ingram is still competent and rookie Alvin Kamara is teasing star potential. Peterson turned his 29 touches into 85 yards. If the Cheap Barcelona Jerseys Cardinals simply let him run, then there is surely flex potential here.

Cheap Hockey Jerseys From China

Top prospect to watch:The obvious top prospect to watch is South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney and how he fares against Tennessee left tackle Antonio Richardson. As SB Nation’s Steven Godfrey found, Tennessee is trying to underscore the matchup despite Richardson getting the better of Clowney a season ago. If you’re down on Clowney, don’t look at the Cheap NFL Jerseys China stat line. Look at how fast he’s getting off the line and into opposing backfields. If you haven’t read it yet, Josh Norris of Rotoworld has a great breakdown on that ideal right here.

Keep an eye on: As much attention as Richardson will get, Tennessee’s tackle opposite him, Ju’Wuan James, will see Clowney plenty. James may exclusively be a right tackle prospect, but he’s a solid one. He’s not flashy or overly athletic, but he’s reliable.

More to watch: Tennessee running back Rajion Neal doesn’t garner a lot of headlines, but he’s a solid running back. He had a good game against Georgia on Oct. 5 rushing for 148 yards and two touchdowns largely due to his effort. South Carolina left tackle Corey Robinson is starting to gain some attention. At 6-foot-8 and 341 pounds, he’s one of the bigger offensive linemen in the nation. He’s coming off a good game against Arkansas.

No team seems to do more with less every season. Sure, Tom Brady might be the best quarterback of all-time, but outside of him this team does not have one Pro Bowler on offense at any skill position this year. The Patriots have been running out all sorts of young kids who have struggled so far at the receiver position, from Aaron Dobson to Kenbrell Thompkins, but Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China New England has made it work.

Part of the Patriots success goes back to an underrated defense that has also fought through the Wilfork injury. New England is only 14th in yards-per-game allowed, but is tough against the pass, giving up only 228.8 yards. It is also a unit that has been opportunistic, earning 12 takeaways.
