Which players should you build around and which players should you fade in DFS as we tip off Monday’s nine-game slate? Our experts have the answers.

And Ball’s long-distance shot continues to be off. Ball made his first 3-pointer in three games but is 1-for-14 from beyond the arc during that stretch.

No Carson Palmer and no David Johnson. The Cardinals already boast the NFL’s worst rush attack (63.4 yards per game), so it could be interesting to see what happens to the offense with Drew Stanton starting at quarterback going forward.

Ball did what looks like is quickly becoming the norm for the rookie — he filled up the box score in rebounds and assists. Going into the game, Ball was averaging nine assists and nine rebounds. He had seven rebounds, six assists and five points in 31 minutes. He also had a nice steal and a wrap-around pass around a defender at half court to a streaking Larry Nance Jr. for a dunk. He later connected on an alley-oop to Nance.

NOT BALLIN’: The Lakers led the Raptors by 17 with 3:56 left in the first half. By 8:05 left in the third quarter, the Raptors had the lead following a DeRozan fadeaway to cap a 27-9 run. During that run, the Lakers had as many turnovers (eight) as shot attempts. Ball had three turnovers alone in the final 3:13 of the second quarter to help the Raptors get back in the game. Against John Wall and the Washington Wizards in the previous win, Ball was terrific in this department with only one turnover against an elite point guard.

Pitino, like Miller, was vying for Langford’s services. (Arizona’s Emanuel “Book” Richardson, one of the four charged, was an assistant with Miller’s brother, Sean, for 11 years. Sean has not been accused of any misconduct to date.)ducks-099

SQUEEZED SCHEDULE: NASCAR experimented with a condensed two-day show at Martinsville, where qualifying was held a little more than three hours before the start of the race. Although roughly two hours of practice time was lost by dumping the Authentic Ryan Shazier Jersey third on-track day, fans did get an autograph session and Fan Fest after Saturday’s two practice sessions.

LIGHTS: The long race day gave Martinsville the opportunity to make the NASCAR debut of its new $5 million LED lighting system.

There was no firm appointment made for another call among the group, the owner added, but he said he had little doubt that the discussion would continue.

We can test this theory: Is the deep fly out exciting enough to sustain an entire listicle? We will soon know. We’re counting down the best doggone fly outs of the 2017 postseason!

I was pleasantly surprised by how genuinely receptive the owners were to the issues we raised and how truly respectful they were of our point of view. They more than simply accepted that the players have a point of view. These owners respected and even demonstrated pride in the players for standing up for what they believe in. Interesting.

Kids Joe Kocur Jersey Bower led Southern Miss to 14 straight winning seasons and four Conference USA titles in 18 years as the Golden Eagles’ head coach (1990-2007). Prior to Southern Miss, he was an assistant at Oklahoma State, Wake Forest and SMU.

I have the utmost respect for Coach Bower, as he taught me a lot about being a great player and even more importantly on how to be a great man, said former Southern Miss quarterback and current Golden Eagles radio analyst Lee Roberts. You can attribute his success to his work ethic, high character and his integrity. It is truly an honor for Southern Miss to have Coach Jeff Bower serve on the selection committee.

We have reached the unofficial halfway point of the 2017 NFL season, and the scariest (and sweetest) holiday is the best way to celebrate it.

Despite the unhappiness, this group of owners is skeptical that it will be able to outright fire Goodell, according to sources. The NFL would need 24 owners to approve Goodell’s ouster. But one person involved in this past week’s conference call compared the NFL’s current situation with Goodell to Major League Baseball’s situation with Fay Vincent in September 1992, when baseball owners voted 18-9 to ask him to step down and replace him Authentic Dwyane Wade Jersey with Bud Selig.

It was a scuffle. I’m not going to go into details about it. I’ll do that with the league tomorrow, Beal said. We just got into it and things got out of hand and we both got ejected. I told my teammates I can’t put myself in a situation like that to leave them out there to battle out against a tough team without me out there.

But it served only to set up the 10th blown lead of the Series, the fifth by Houston, as Verlander fell to 9-1 with the Astros.

Dodgers relievers combined for 4 1/3 scoreless innings. Brandon Morrow retired Alex Bregman on a grounder to strand the bases loaded in the fifth,winner Tony Watson got Marwin Gonzalez to line out to leaping second baseman Chase Utley with two on and two outs in the sixth , and Kenta Maeda escaped two-on trouble in the seventh when third baseman Justin Turner gloved Jose Altuve’s grounder and made a short-hop throw that first baseman Cody Bellinger scooped just in time.

And it shows here when you see the separation Edelman generates (yellow circle). But Garoppolo throws this ball high and late, which allows the defensive back — who got completely turned around by the route — to round his break and still close in on the throw. Edelman has to wait on the throw and the defender breaks up this play.

Portland went on a 10-5 run to open the fourth and Authentic Melker Karlsson Jersey close the gap to 86-71 with 8:55 left. Lillard added a 16-footer to cut the margin to 13.

Raptors: It was the fourth game of a season-long six game road trip for Toronto. … The Raptors won both games against the Blazers last season.

You can’t wholesale everything, Shannon said. Coach Mac left a great foundation for us. Now we’ve just got to build on it. We’re going to do certain things in practice that are maybe a little bit different. … You have to change something or it becomes stagnant. We won’t be stagnant. We’ll change some things that we feel are best for us.

As a head coach, I’ve got to be able to multitask on offense, defense, special teams, he said.

No one would be surprised to see Shannon switch to Zaire at quarterback.

Arizona coach Rick Tocchet downplayed the team’s record in his pregame talk.

I said, `You guys are playing hard. Keep doing the right things and good things will happen, Tocchet said. And it did. We just have to keep that mentality.

Weal pulled Philadelphia within a goal by scoring on a rebound before Couturier’s equalizer. Provorov batted down the puck just inside the blue line to keep the play in the offensive zone and passed to Claude Giroux, who sent a cross-ice pass to Couturier.

The Patriots waited for the right time to deal backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and the 49ers were the perfect partner before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline.

In a blockbuster move rare for the midseason, New England on Monday sent Garoppolo to San Francisco for a second-round pick in the 2018 draft.

“I think it was ignorant,” Brown said. “I think it was embarrassing. I think it angered a lot of players, including myself. We put our bodies and minds on the line every time we step on that field, and to use an analogy of inmates in prison, that’s disrespectful. That’s how I feel about it.”

Before the Texans’ Week 3 game in New England in 2016, an injured Brown raised his fist during the national anthem, and expressed displeasure at the lack of support he received from the organization.

It was 10-2 after Booker’s basket with nine minutes left in the first quarter and, after Josh Jackson threw a slick behind-the-back pass to Len for a dunk, Phoenix was up 32-15 with 9:42 to play in the half.

Phoenix had a fast start to the second half, too. The Suns scored the first six points of the third quarter and outscored the Jazz 21-10 over the first 8 1/2 minutes of the period to take their biggest lead, 69-51, on Ulis’ 14-footer with 3:30 remaining.

Phoenix was up 83-65 on Warren’s basket with 9:02 to play. But the Jazz rallied with a 16-6 run to cut it to 89-81 with 3:31 remaining. After a two-minute scoring drought by both teams, Booker sank his 3 and the Suns never were seriously threatened again.

Jazz: Utah committed 24 turnovers to the Suns’ 16. … Hood played despite a mild left leg strain. … Utah fell to 0-3 on the road. … The Jazz swept the season series the last two years.raiders_076-223x223

Roush sees retirement ahead Jack Roush, one of NASCAR’s most successful owners and a pioneer in bringing engineering technology into the sport with his multi-car Ford teams, has used the R word. Retire. I expected to have better years than (winless) 2016 and 2015, Roush said to azcentral sports in advance of Sunday’s Camping World 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. Had I realized I had those years in front of me, I might have decided to side-step, and retire. I’m 74. I can’t do what I’m doing today for another 10 years. My window is, the longest I’ve been able to predict what I was going to do in life, has been five years. I’m probably down to a three-year window. I’m looking at how I can be useful.

With the NFL trade deadline approaching Tuesday afternoon, time is running short for teams to use a powerful tool for improving their short- and long-term outlooks.

Elite Youth Kareem Hunt Jersey The Jacksonville Jaguars could fashion themselves as a quarterback away from challenging the AFC’s elite. Could they pry an established starter from a team that might be willing to hit the Authentic Keith McGill Jersey reset button? Speaking of the AFC’s elite, will the ever-active New England Patriots have any more surprises up their sleeve after dealing Jimmy Garoppolo? Elsewhere, what about Jarvis Landry, a talented young wideout whose current team hasn’t seemed particularly motivated to reward him with a lucrative long-term deal?

I think our guys are competing, coach Mike Budenholzer told Fox Sports Southeast. I like the way they’re playing for the most part, the way they’re competing.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 33 points and Khris Middleton had 27 for the Bucks, who shot 54.3 percent against an Atlanta defense that allows 107.6 points a game, third-most in the league.

However, they are unlikely to find a deputy who inspires as much confidence as Garoppolo did, and the reality is that the Patriots are now an injury to Brady, who has already been sacked 21 times this season, away from their season being over and their future at quarterback being cast into doubt.

Arizona (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12) ended September at 2-2, losing a pair of home games to Houston and Utah by a single possession. Following a bye week, the Wildcats traveled to Colorado on Oct. 7, where quarterback Brandon Dawkins was flung into the sidelines on the game’s opening drive.

Dawkins was pulled, and sophomore Khalil Tate entered the lineup. It was a move that USC head coach Clay Helton said, changed the dynamic of their team.

Four games, four wins and an unprecedented four straight Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honors later, Tate has not relinquished the job. He leads Arizona in rushing with 926 yards on just 69 carries and has reached the end zone for eight touchdowns.

Keller spent the summer hopscotching between workouts in St. Louis, Boston, and Arizona, where he crashed at Domi’s empty pad. He lifted to add muscle, part of an ongoing pursuit that never quite seems to take. Judging by his astute timing around the net and craftiness in tight areas, though, more size might not really make a difference. His number one thing is his brain, Domi says.

The economics teacher started the first two games for the Giants at middle linebacker, and was named the defensive captain of the replacement squad.

The Giants锟斤拷 defense was weak, unable to stop anyone. Then Taylor returned.

Indeed, the problems go well beyond quarterback. Jackson has been adamant about trying to get slumping power running back Isaiah Crowell on track when receiving back Duke Johnson Jr. has been the Browns’ best source of offense. Injuries to the wide receiver corps have kept Cleveland from settling on a go-to guy. You would think that would make Jackson feature his tight ends more in the passing game, but despite their athleticism, David Njoku and Seth DeValve have been treated more like flashes than players with substance.

Working in favor of Flacco’s continued job security: The specifics of the contract extension he signed with the team in March 2016. He is owed just $12 million next year, or, to put it in some context, the same amount the Jets paid Ryan Fitzpatrick to submarine them in 2016. Flacco will be paid like a middling starting quarterback next year, which is pretty much what he’s become.

Joe Thomas suffered a season-ending injury last Sunday, putting an end to our favorite annual NFL tradition. For the first time we can remember, there will be no rumors about the Browns shopping Thomas for a potential trade.

Sports Business Journal reported that since the fall TV season opened on Sept. 25, NFL game viewership is 2.5 times bigger than broadcast prime-time viewership. And, 17 of the top 20 shows that have aired since the start of football season are football game coverage. Also, according to Standard Media Index, money spent on advertising during NFL games increased by 2% in September.

So the Broncos pretty much have to go into max protect and be more conservative than they would like to be with the big-armed Siemian. They might have to go to more dinking and dunking with more multiple-back sets. The objective to get out of the slump needs to be keeping it simple, protecting the ball and trying to win field-position games.

The good news is Denver’s defensive dominance can be a big factor. The bad news is the Broncos have little margin for error there and on special teams. One or two lapses in allowing big plays when the offense isn’t making any can cost them. The latter has been more of an issue.

The differences in Los Angeles were the long receiving (42 yards) and punt returning (65 yards) scores from Travis Benjamin. Most of the other stats were similar among the two teams.

Even with Joe Woods improving on where Wade Phillips left off with the defense, McCoy is dealing with the same limitations as Kubiak had in 2016, when the Broncos went 9-7 and fell short of the playoffs.49ers_210_732fade0133520ad-150x150

The meetings were already running long and were ending on a raw note — and there were more agenda items to hit. For the second time in a month, a few frustrated owners grumbled about Lockhart, angry that the league was, as usual, appearing to be reactive in a public relations sense in the face of a crippling crisis. League executives worried that during upcoming events — Veterans Day and the NFL’s Salute to Service — pro-military groups might stage protests.

The Jets held a 28-14 lead entering the fourth quarter and the Dolphins were also without offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil (knee) and defensive end Andre Branch (groin). Moore was able to lead a fourth-quarter comeback thanks to short fields set up by the defense.

Others receiving votes: The most rushing yards by any Aaron Lynch Jersey player in a game against Cleveland this season is 66 (Javorius Allen in Week 2) and the Browns have allowed only two rushing touchdowns to running backs this season and none since Week 3, so I’m not sold on Latavius Murray’s chances at a repeat performance this Sunday. Remember, Murray was averaging just 2.37 yards per carry prior to last week. … Even in a bye-week situation, I can’t see using any Seattle running back until we get some sign of success, so I’m trying to look elsewhere if I have Eddie Lacy or Thomas Rawls. … After being out-snapped last week by Marlon Mack, Frank Gore has expected game flow and a tough matchup with Cincy’s eighth-ranked run defense the past four weeks to contend with. … Man, it is brutal out there. Sorry I don’t have more names for you, but honestly … anyone with a pulse this week.
