He’s not an overly appealing player to watch, but his role on this team comes with a high floor, so I’ll happily build around him on a night in which he faces the third worst rebounding team and one that ranks 29th in overall defense. Sure, his offensive role isn’t great, but his scoring average is up over 2.0 points per game for a second straight season and the talent around him allows him to play to his strengths (his average made shot is from 1.8 feet away). I’m viewing Adams as a double-double lock in Sacramento tonight with the potential for this game to be one of his top five of the season.
I love George as much as anyone, but his salary ($9,500 FD, $8,800 DK) is still inflated from when Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony were out. It’s a neutral matchup for George with the Kings from a DvP perspective, but Vegas expects an easy win for the Thunder in the lowest point total game on this slate.
“It’s definitely frustrating, I’m not happy with the loss,” Vancouver coach Travis Green said. “The players gotta realize that against a quick team they’re not gonna have as much time and space if you turn the puck over a couple of times inside their blue line.”
Vegas opened the scoring when Hyka, playing in just his third NHL game, scored his first career goal 2:29 into the game.
“I’m kind of still getting used to (the NHL), everything is faster compared to the IHL, but I play with two really good guys and they make a lot of things there for me and I’m just really happy I can play with them,” said the 24-year-old Hyka, about his linemates Cody Eakin and Ryan Carpenter.
After the request was sent, Skiba sent Manning an email saying “Let me know what your looking for I’ll try to get something down for you…,” according to the Post.
“2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli,” Manning allegedly responded from his BlackBerry. Then 17 minutes later, Manning wrote back to Zucker, saying: “Should be able to get them for tomorrow.”
This Super Bowl is primed for it.
“You have really good plays, you have bad plays and the bad plays had better not be so much better than the good plays,” Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler said. “The cornerback position is the toughest to play in football. It takes a strong amount of confidence. You have to be ready for anything physically and mentally. You’ve got to be a dog.”
