There is no denying that first baseman was hitting the ball well before his injury, as a .542 batting average and three home runs in just 24 at-bats more than speaks for itself. He is set to return from his oblique injury in Week 6 (May 6-12), and may represent a tantalizing starting option for some owners.

Unfortunately, his 24 at-bats came sprinkled throughout the course of 18 days, and there is little indication that more playing time is going to become available upon his return. As our Scott White notes in , Adams does not make much sense as a starting option right now. Given the makeup of the Cardinals’ roster, Adams is likely to get lost in the shuffle, no matter how big a stick he might swing.

earned a vote of confidence from manager Don Mattingly Tuesday, who told .com that Sellers will remain the starting shortstop Brighton owner Tony Bloom considered sacking Chris Hughton four weeks ago, according to The Argus.Bloom held off on making the decision out of fear that it could backfire and make things worse.Hughton was eventually sacked on Monday after a dismal end to the season.He spent four-and-a-half-years in charge of the Seagulls.until Hanley Ramirez can return from the disabled list. Does that mean Fantasy owners should have any confidence in him?

Given that the first thing Mattingly pointed to in support of Sellers was his glove work, the answer to that should be pretty obvious. If not, the .167 batting average through 12 games is a dead giveaway. Sellers does not have much of a track record in the minor leagues that would indicate he is capable of being a Fantasy producer; just a pair of double-digit home run seasons played mostly in the inflated hitting environment of the Pacific Coast League.  

Sellers has an abnormally low .192 batting average on balls in play, but even that does little to explain away his lack of Fantasy value. Sellers is dreadfully lacking in power, with just one extra-base hit in 41 at-bats. He is strikeout prone for a hitter without much power, a bad combination that is unlikely to lead to a high average. Outside of maybe the rare 14-team, NL-only Fantasy league, Sellers is simply not worth your time.

NFL to cut pay for league employees, furlough others; Roger Goodell volunteers to take zero dollars in salary

content_img

Thousands of companies around the country have had to make difficult cutbacks due to economic ramifications of the Coronavirus pandemic and as of May 8, the NFL will be one of those companies. In a league memo obtained by CBSSports.com, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell revealed thats been explaining, perhaps for the benefit of his new Tottenham players and staff, how problems can emerge if individuals do not share his vision and values.”I read something about Kobe Bryant, a serial winner and a top professional. He says ‘people the league would be cutting pay for multiple employees and furloughing others. According , Goodell will also be taking a substantial pay cut as the commissioner has volunteered to have his salary reduced down to nothing. Goodell currently , but will be pulling in zero dollars while the pay cuts are going on. 

“The economic consequences for our country have been substantial, and we have taken a series of steps in response to their impact on the ,” Goodell wrote in the memo. “Within our own offices, we have limited new hiring, frozen salaries for many employees, and undertaken a thorough, organization-wide review to identify and implement cost reductions.  During this time, one goal has been to maintain pay and benefits for our workforce for as long as possible.”

With the NFL’s temporary pay cuts, some employees see their salary reduced by up to 15% while other employees will only see their salary reduced by 5%. 

The cuts will go into effect on May 22 with the league hoping to have everyone back to their normal salary at some point in the next few months. Although pay is being reduced almost across the board, the memo did state that no employee making less than $100,000 would see their pay reduced. Also, no employee making more than $100,000 will have their pay cut to under $100,000. 

As for the furloughs, that will be happening to league employees who are “unable to substantially perform their duties from home and/or whoseSouthampton are seeking a buyer for Sofiane Boufal.The midfielder is back at St Mary’s after spending last season on-loan with Celta Vigo.L’Equipe says Saints have offered the Morocco international to Olympique Marseille.However, OM coach Andre Villas-Boas turned down the proposal.AVB would prefer to stick with Florian Thauvin rather than go with Boufal. current workload has been significantly reduced.” Those will go into effect on May 8.

Despite the cutbacks, the NFL is still hoping to play the 2020 regular season as planned. The league even announced on Wednesday that the schedule is .

Texans seven-round mock draft 2020: Houston replaces key pieces on defense, adds Edwards-Helaire

content_img

CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso  Wednesday and it answered a lot of needs for the Houston Texans. We take a look at each pick and how they would fit on the roster.     

Day 2

Edwards-Helaire’s entire life has been exceeding expectations and proving people wrong. Outside of he and his family, no one could have predicted he would be under consideration for selection in the second round. Holmes’ father spent some time in the with the Bills, Packers and Colts and how he gets to cultivate his own path. He is an intriguing film study the more you dive in to his game. There is a solid foundation for Bill O’Brien to build upon. 

The AFC South franchise took a chance by adding Gareon Conley and Vernon Hargreaves. They from veteran Johnathan Joseph. It was a position that needed an overhaul and it appears to be happening organically. 

Houston does not z admits his departure from Chelsea left some staff in tears.The Brazil international made a surprise switch across the capital on deadline day, joining the Gunners from the Blues in a deal worth a reported £8m It seems admits he’s yet to be won over by manager Unai Emery.Ahead of today’s derby with Tottenham, Graham wants to see whether Emery can improve his players.He told The Sun: “You think of the price of the boys from Stoke, Steve Bould and Dixon — peanutLuiz’s departure left the Bluhave a first round pick after trading it away in a deal for offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil. They have a lot of darts to throw at the board on Day 3, however. 

Day 3

Strowbridge has some unique pass-rush traits but will likely be asked to move inside. The Texans are likely to lose D.J. Reader in free agency so Strowbridge would be a budget replacement. Robinson was the talk of the Reese’s Senior Bowl with his performance. He has to develop his arsenal of pass-rush moves though. 

The decision-makers took a lot of risks rn is a huge boost.Stam believes that as long as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plays to Bailly’s strengths and the centre-back can remain injury-free, he can play a big part in the club’s future. The Ivorian has gone from a forgotten man at United to on Day 3. Strowbridge will grow into his role. Robinson, Hightower and Hill are all raw prospects that will need time and coaching.

Frank Clark says Chiefs defense ‘best in the world right now’ after shutting down Derrick Henry

content_img

In their 35-24 AFC Championship victory over the , the did something both the and failed to do: stop running back .

The Titans’ star running back entered the game having rushed for 182 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots, and then 195 yards against the Ravens. He was the driving force behind Tennessee’s Cinderella postseason run, and many expected him to have another big game against the Chiefs. 

Chiefs defensive end wasn’t intimidated with the challenge of stopping Henry heading into this game, however, and he downplayed how well the running back had been playing.

“,” Clark said of Henry during an interview earlier this week with Network’s James Palmer. “He’s just a big guy. 240, 245, 250, honestly he should be running harder at his weight and at his size. I don’t see no difficulty in tackling him … He’s just easy to me up front because I don’t look at any running back like they can’t be tackled. He’s not one of the best guys at breaking tackles to me, honestly.”

Clark backed up his talk on Sunday, as the Chiefs held Henry to just 69 rushing yards and one touchdown on 19 carries while Clark recorded four total tackles and one sack.

“,” Clark told Palmer when asked how Kansas City was able to limit Henry, via NFL.com. “They come in here, they say they’re gonna run the ball. I know exactly what they were gonna do, you watching that film, you know what they’re going to do. … Over 200 yards each game. I knew damn well we wasn’t going to win the game if we let that happen. They come in here, he runs for 70 yards, they call him the best rusher in the league. We sendin’ his a– home early.”

The Chiefs held the Titans to just 295 yards of total offense on Sunday, and Tennessee converted just 3 of 10 third-down attempts. Kansas City gave up 349.6 yards per game in the regular seaso Rodriguez insists their 0-0 draw with Arsenal was two points dropped.The Clarets ended a 10-game losing Premier League run agange after a knee injury to Calum Chambers.The defender suffered the injury in Sunday’s loss to Chelsea at the Emirates.A prognosis has yet to be given but there are fears Chambers could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.“We will discuss in theainst Arsenal and made it seven points from three games with a first homng hit a superb winner for Bournemouth against his old club on Saturday.United made a positive start after going four unbeaten but their new-found belief seemed to evaporate in driving rain and swirling wind on the south coast.The hosts gradually gote draw for 12 months to climb to 11th in the table.Bn, which ranked No. 17 in the league. The Chiefs’ defense has upped their game in the postseason, however, and it’s a big reason why they are headed to LIV.
