Each week, TSN. Vinny Curry Buccaneers Jersey .ca NFL Editors Ben Fisher and Mike Hetherington discuss three hot fantasy football topics. This week they take a look back and their best and worst calls of the fantasy season. What was your best call this season? Fisher: I didn’t hit on much, but at a time when Robert Griffin III was still getting QB1 grades, I was pretty adamant he wouldn’t live up to those expectations, not even close. I also predicted Griffin wouldn’t last the year as starter but what I didn’t see was Kurt Cousins also getting replaced … or for that matter Colt McCoy looking half serviceable. Griffin struggled even before his ankle injury – his proneness to injury another contributing factor to my low draft grade – and while he put up passable numbers in the games he started upon his return, he never came close to resembling a QB1. Griffin was exposed as a mediocre quarterback in Washington this season and almost certainly sank your fantasy team if you drafted him high. Hetherington: Way back after Week 1, I stated that Cordarelle Patterson was a boom-or-bust WR option and could be considered a sell-high candidate for owners. My reasoning included an imminent quarterback change that would result in a production dip and a run-first offence. Now, I’m not convinced having Teddy Bridgewater under centre was the sole reason for Patterson’s decline, but if you offloaded the second-year pro for a more consistent weapon, you likely got a major upgrade. At a time when Patterson was coming off a game with over 100 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown, one of my bolder calls of the season paid off. What was your worst call this season? Fisher: After watching a very mediocre running back in Knowshon Moreno put up monster numbers in a Peyton Manning-led offence, I thought a decent back in Montee Ball could put up even bigger numbers for the Broncos this season. At least I thought Ball was a decent running back. Ball was a below average running back before he got injured, which eventually led to CJ Anderson getting the job and halfway proving my point that a back better than Moreno could do some real damage in Manning’s backfield. It just happened to be a running back I’d previously never heard of. Hetherington: This one is painful to admit as I look back on it. In mid-October, I declared Colin Kaepernick to be the best dual-threat option over Russell Wilson and Cam Newton. Kaepernick was coming off his best game of the season; throwing for 343 yards and three touchdowns against the Rams defence. Kaepernick has not had a multi-touchdown game since and has subsequently dropped completely off the fantasy QB1 radar. Looking back, the correct choice would have been Wilson, but even Newton would have been a better choice than the one I made. Who was the biggest surprise performer this season? Fisher: DeMarco Murray staying healthy all season was a big one, and Andrew Luck taking the reins as top quarterback sooner than expected was surprising too, but Odell Beckham Jr. leads the list for me. Beckham was topped only by the Steelers’ Antonio Brown, another pleasant surprise in his own right, in average points per week by receivers. The rookie first rounder was a fantasy force after recovering from a back injury that kept him out of the lineup the first four weeks of the season. And the best part? He did it in style! Hetherington: I’m going to call this one a tie between Le’Veon Bell and Demarco Murray, both of whom were projected to finish outside the top five of fantasy backs. The two will finish as by far the best running backs of 2014 and are currently separated by just 0.1 fantasy points (Bell has that slight edge). Each are surprises for their own reason, however. Bell was set to share the Steelers backfield with LeGarrette Blount – and did briefly – but took over as the feature back, so much so that the Steelers to cut ties with Blount. He also emerged as a major weapon in the passing game, receiving for more yards than any other back. Murray’s value was considered relatively limited entering the season by his injury history, yet he handled the biggest workload of his career without missing a game. If you had either back on your team, you likely had major success this season. Vita Vea Jersey . A-Rod is also disqualified from any post-season play. So at the tender age of 38, he will miss all of next season. As a result of missing the coming season, hes also out $25 million (which coincidentally is my hourly rate). Chandler Catanzaro Buccaneers Jersey . Both sides came closest to scoring in the first half, when Roma had a goal from Mattia Destro waved off for offside and Inters Rodrigo Palacio headed high. "A draw was a fair result. Neither squad had many chances," Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic said.Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jake Peavy picked up his first career postseason win as the San Francisco Giants held on to beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 in their NL Division Series opener on Friday. Peavy (1-0) had a solid outing, scattering two hits in 5 2/3 scoreless innings. Buster Posey, Brandon Belt and Joe Panik each knocked in a run for the Giants, who have won nine straight playoff games. They were coming off Wednesdays 8-0 wild-card victory at Pittsburgh. Stephen Strasburg (0-1) gave up two runs in his postseason debut -- one earned -- on eight singles in five-plus innings for the NL East-champion Nationals. Game 2 of the best-of-five series is Saturday, with the Giants sending out another veteran in Tim Hudson. Washington right-hander Jordan Zimmermann will make his first start since no-hitting Miami in Sundays regular-season finale. Peavy, who didnt allow a hit through the first four innings, exited after his third walk of the game put runners on first and second in the sixth. Javier Lopez then walked Adam LaRoche to load the bases, but Hunter Strickland struck out Ian Desmond on a 100-mph fastball. Panik reached on a triple to begin the seventh. Center fielder Denard Span couldnt make the catch before crashing into the wall. Posey followed with a comebacker that deflected off reliever Craig Stammens glove and trickled into the outfield grass, scoring Panik to make it 3-0. Strickland gave up two home runs in the bottom of the frame. Bryce Harper led off by sending a 97-mph pitch into the third deck in right field. Asdrubal Cabrera launched a shot to right with one out. In his next at-bat, Harper hit into a fielders choice with two men on base against Sergio Romo in the eighth. John Lynch Jersey. Washington went down quietly in the ninth as Santiago Casilla earned the save. A challenge by the Giants resulted in a call being overturned and the games first run. Travis Ishikawa led off the third inning with a single. Peavy dropped down a sacrifice bunt to the right side that was fielded by the first baseman LaRoche. Instead of taking the out at first, LaRoche decided to throw to second, where Ishikawa was called out by umpire Tom Hallion. The play was reversed after a 61-second review. After both runners advanced on a passed ball by catcher Wilson Ramos, Ishikawa scored on Paniks one-out single to center. Strasburg then got Posey to ground into an inning-ending double play. The Giants extended their lead in the fourth. Hunter Pence hustled to beat out a double play, stole second and came around on a one-out single to right by Belt. With two aboard later in the inning, Washington third baseman Anthony Rendon made a fine diving stop to his left and fired to second for the final out. Strasburg stranded two runners in the fifth, but was removed after Belt and Brandon Crawford opened the sixth with consecutive singles. Jerry Blevins ended the threat with a strikeout and pair of flyouts. Game Notes Peavy had been 0-3 with a 9.27 ERA in five postseason starts prior to Fridays game ... San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval extended his postseason hitting streak to 12 games ... Crawford collected three hits ... The Giants were 3-for-15 with runners in scoring position and stranded 10 ... The Nationals had only six hits to the Giants 12. Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys Cheap Browns JerseysCheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Lions Jerseys Cheap Packers Jerseys Cheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Colts Jerseys Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys ' ' '
