That’s a matter of opinion and the one that will be voiced most loudly will be the dissatisfied one. The Patriots had the room under the cap to pay Jones. He’s not at all the brittle fella he got painted as in the past few weeks. I would be willing to wager he will be one of the 10 best receivers in the NFL through the remainder of his contract. The Patriots still aren’t daunting at wide receiver.
This is where the Chiefs let down last season. Opposing quarterbacks had a QBR of 89.7 in the red zone, which was 29th. The league average was 70.3.
Just because Jones won't play his entire career in Atlanta doesn't diminish his importance to the Falcons. Yes, seeing him play for Tennessee next season will be strange. If another player wears No. 11 for Atlanta in the immediate future -- which would be a mistake, for what it's worth -- it would be stunning.NFL New York Giants Team Face Coverings

The Sun hold onto the two spot again this week, but things could start to go south in Uncasville soon. Jonquel Jones will miss at least the next four games because of EuroBasket, and losing the frontrunner for MVP for even four games could be an issue. Though, the Sun facing Chicago three times in the next four games could be a blessing if the Sky continue to play like one of the W’s worst teams. We’ll see what happens. If you told me in the preseason Jonquel would miss three games against the Sky, I would have been incredibly worried for the Sun! Now, I’m a little less worried.Sacramento Kings
“They have grown richer -- spiritually and mentally. But I think it has taken a strain and a toll on a few,” Dr. William Parham, the NBPA’s director of mental health and wellness, told USA TODAY Sports. “That’s to be expected.

Kingery’s been fairly unlucky the last two years. He tested positive for COVID shortly before the 2020 season, and never got comfortable. He didn’t hit this spring, and he was 1-for-19 with the Phillies (12 strikeouts) before suffering a concussion. If he hadn’t signed the extension, the Phillies probably couldn’t have passed him through waivers. But with the big ticket attached, no team wanted to take a chance.
Taylor is strictly an option in 15-team leagues until Lorenzo Cain returns from the IL. The 27-year-old showed an intriguing blend of power and speed during his Minor League career, and as a Major Leaguer, he has produced eight homers across 136 at-bats.MLB Face Coverings Online Sale

Diaz departed Saturday's game in Buffalo against the Toronto Blue Jays after being hit on the back of his hand on a pitch thrown by Ross Stripling. He underwent X-rays, which revealed the fracture.
Diaz made massive strides with his K-BB rate last year and has continued those gains this season. But his improved plate discipline has made little difference to his overall effectiveness, as Diaz owns a xRC+ this season (110) that is slightly worse than his marks in 2018-19, when he had average plate discipline. From a fantasy perspective, Diaz is not much of a mixed-league factor because his power and speed skills are minimal. In fact, he has tallied just three homers and zero steals across 366 plate appearances since the start of last season. The 29-year-old rarely hits the ball hard or in the air, and he doesn’t have the foot speed to beat out grounders.Milwaukee Brewers Face Coverings
"We were hanging out and they were going to look for houses and things like that. I told him, 'Don't be too depressed.

While CPOE seems to have a pretty strong correlation towards NFL success, Fields is going to a franchise that has not had elite quarterback play in nearly a century. The Bears are notorious for running through quarterbacks, as the harsh northern wind has made accuracy an issue historically in Chicago. This is also the NFL and not the Big Ten’s best program carving up sorry cannon fodder.

The appeal of having two elite perimeter defenders is being able to save one for when you really need them. It seems like the Clippers are trying to save both of them?
The Clippers have professed they are a different team from last year’s championship-contention squad that underachieved with a second-round exit. They parted ways with Doc Rivers and promoted Ty Lue to head coach, in hopes that a new voice and new X’s and O’s would lead to better accountability.
