With the first season of Statcast™ behind us, let’s run down a roster of 2015’s All-Statcast™ Team. This isn’t the same thing as “the best player at each position,“ because you’ll notice there’s no Bryce Harper, Clayton Kershaw or Buster Posey. Let’s think of this more as “really good players who stood out in a new, interesting way.“ C — Yasmani Grandal, Dodgers
Notre Dame beat Boston College, 19-16, Saturday at Fenway Park in Boston, but the Irish looked sloppy in victory, committing five turnovers — three in the red zone. Will the lack of style points hurt their College Football Playoff chances?
It was easy to toss Baylor out of the playoff race after a double-digit home loss to Oklahoma. It’s a lot harder now, after the No. 10 Bears beat previously unbeaten No. 6 Oklahoma State 45-35 in Stillwater on Saturday night.
Ole Miss handed LSU a 38-17 beat down and piled a third consecutive loss on the backs of the Tigers. After starting 7-0, those three losses look brutally bad. It’s also the first time in the Les Miles era that LSU has dropped three in a row.
For the second time in three seasons, Michigan State ended Ohio State’s undefeated run, as Spartans kicker Michael Geiger made a 41-yard field goal as time expired to beat the No. 3 Buckeyes 17-14 on Saturday afternoon in Columbus.
The top-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels made the mistake of traveling to Cedar Falls, Iowa to take on Northern Iowa and it cost them. UNC fell to the Panthers 71-67 in the biggest upset of an already crazy early college basketball season.
On Saturday, The Citadel ended a 27-game skid against FBS opponents that spanned the past 23 years, beating South Carolina in a thrilling 23-22 road win. Bulldogs head coach Mike Houston thinks his team is a force to be reckoned with.
North Carolina spoiled Frank Beamer’s final game at Lane Stadium, as the No. 17 Tar Heels recovered from a fourth-quarter comeback by the Hokies to win 30-27 in overtime on Saturday, clinching the ACC Coastal Division title.
For the update on the weather forecast for week 11, we have 3 games that are going to be played at less than ideal temperatures. The first of these three games is Denver @ Chicago, as that game is scheduled to be 25 degrees for kickoff. Next we have Green Bay @ Minnesota with an expected temperature of 34 degrees. Last we have the Bills @ New England on Monday night as it is expected to be 29 degrees at kickoff. While cold, there doesn’t appear to be wind and so I don’t expect a ton of impact here but I like a defensive game in Chicago, Minnesota just wants to run anyway, take Peterson and then in New England, this might mean that Blount should be considered at least on DraftKings in the Flex position so you can swap him out if needed. It also means that Karlos Williams will be a strong candidate for #Sleeper of the week. For more information just come here.
Now for the part that we know you have all been waiting for, give me the lineup that will win. I know, I know, we have done this quite significantly in the past and now we have our lineup analyzer providing automatic lineup recommendations but what do I think. Here is my top 3 lineups for week 10 on Draftkings:
Now we look to provide your FanDuel lineups for the week below:
Logan Cartwright’s Expert Picks
In this section, we look to provide you with a breakdown of who the public is taking this week. Since this information is not readily available we are using the perfect challenge from nfl.com.
Based on public picks, you can see that many folks like Amari Cooper this week. The DiRT Canon shows that Crabtree will have the better performance today but I also like Cooper this week. 42% are on the Seahawks defense but I like the Bears as a #Sleeper defense this week. My last notable selection is Ebron as the Lions get the Raiders this weekend and they are the 2nd worst team against the TE position this season. Look for Ebron to have a big day.
Come check out the rest NOW.
With the SEC East title already wrapped up, Florida barely avoided disaster in a nonconference game on Saturday, surviving to beat Florida Atlantic 20-14 in overtime, with another ugly performance from the Gators offense.
