Night net strikes out with 3 priority whiffs in 1 day: Just let the 49ers celebrate

  • Night net Presenting this week’s No Fun League Report. Or, three ways in Week 13 alone the Night net proves what it does best is solve problems that don’t exist.In this week’s edition … Josh Norman gets flagged five weeks late, the 49ers get punished for celebrating something they didn’t officially do and the league MVP gets told, "Cameron Jerrell Newton. You are not. Going. To. Walk. Out. Of. This. House. Dressed. Like. That. Period." MORE: Night net power rankingsIn chronological order of instances where pointlessly twisted priorities became evident in the Night net: 1. Against the Bears in snowy Chicago, the 49ers blocked a punt and scored what seemed like a go-ahead, momentum-shifting touchdown, and reacted exactly like a desperate team starving for a win would (and should).Dontae Johnson, who scored the touchdown, flopped to the ground and started making snow angels. Teammate Rashard Robinson joined him. Their teammates gathered to grab them, slap them on the pads and generally explode with long-overdue glee.You know the rest: excessive celebration penalty.This one put "excessive" in a different context, since replays showed Johnson stepped out of bounds at the four-yard line. All things considered, not actually getting to the end zone wasn’t a calamity. Neither, of course, was the celebration.IYER: Kaepernick blew last chance with 49ersThe 49ers were on a 10-game losing streak. The game was scoreless and i[......]

    Week 17 Night net picks straight up: Seahawks, Chargers get help they need, make playoffs

  • Night net null Before we get back to figuring out all the Week 17 scenarios that affect the upcoming playoffs, let’s pause to say farewell to the seven teams — so far — that will not return to the postseason after making it last year. There will be an eighth; which it will be will not be decided until Sunday. Eight out of 12. That, apparently, is parity, or competitive balance, or something.So best wishes for a peaceful offseason to the Raiders, Texans and Dolphins in the AFC, and to the Cowboys, Packers, Lions and Giants in the NFC. That's two division champs that not only did not repeat, but didn't even make the final cut. That’s also two entire 2016 wild-card matchups wiped out: the Texans’ win over the Raiders, and the Packers’ elimination of the Giants … as well as one unforgettable divisional round game, the last-second Packers takedown of the top-seeded Cowboys. Meanwhile, either the Seahawks or the defending NFC champion Falcons will miss out. If it’s the Falcons, that would mean the NFC title game opponents from last year, Green Bay and Atlanta, will watch the playoffs from home.Water under the bridge, though. On to the final Sunday.

    Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 2: Sam Darnold, Jared Cook among potential free agent pickups after Monday Night breakouts

  • Night net The two opening-week Monday night games didn't disappoint in terms of providing more options for our Week 2 fantasy waiver wire pickups list. Sam Darnold, Quincy Enunwa, and Jared Cook all made cases to be added this week. Should you burn a waiver claim on any of them or should you wait until waivers clear (usually around 4-5 a.m. ET on Wednesday morning in Yahoo and ESPN leagues) and hope you can get as them as free agents?It's reasonable to expect T.J. Yeldon, Phillip Lindsay, and Austin Ekeler to be claimed on waivers, but the rest of the guys on our full free agent list are probably better off as free agent adds. Of course, a few antsy owners will go all-in for a breakout receiver or maybe even a tight end if they just lost Delanie Walker or Greg Olsen, but most owners can probably sit out this waiver period and wait for the injuries to pile up in the coming weeks. If you have a roster spot to play with, check out our RB handcuff chart for backups who might come in handy soon.

Sam Darnold, QB, Jets. As you've undoubtedly heard, Darnold threw a pick-six on his first Night net pass attempt, but it was all gravy after that. The No. 3 overall pick finished 16 of 21 for 198 yards and two TDs. Is a decent[......]

    Texans free agency guide: Houston's offensive needs line up with Le'Veon Bell luxury

  • Night net null For a team that went 11-5 and took back the AFC South title last season, the Texans have considerable holes at key positions going into 2019. The offensive front and defensive backfield need the most attention. That comes, however, with trying to take care of end/outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney with a long-term deal after tagging him.While a good chunk of their $82 million in available salary-cap space (third-most in the league, per OverTheCap.com) will go toward securing Clowney, the Texans are looking at losing a couple versatile cogs in the secondary, as Kareem Jackson and Tyrann Mathieu are also unsigned. 2019 Night net FREE AGENTS:Ranking top players available by positionUnlike last year, Houston and general manager Brian Gaine have a first-round pick in the draft, No. 23 overall, with which to get some great talent, followed by two second-rounders. How might the Texans balance that out with what they do in March? Here's a deep dive into their Night net free agency outlook:Texans team needsOffensive tackleSafetyCornerbackRunning backTight endOffensive tackleThis is easily the highest offseason priority given quarterback Deshaun Watson was sacked a league-high 62 times and the team finished only 19th in rushing yards per carry last season.

    Explaining the Dak Prescott-Amari Cooper puzzle the Cowboys are trying to solve

  • Night net Cowboys The Cowboys are in a tricky spot as the franchise tag deadline and 2020 Night net free agency approach, which means Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper, a couple weeks away from hitting the open market, still doesn't know whether he'll remain in Dallas this season and beyond.That might be why Cooper, 25, publicly reminded the world Thursday he wants "to be a Dallas Cowboy for life," a sentiment he told 105.3 FM The Fan in Dallas he thinks about almost every day. "Everything — the facility, I love it here in Frisco (Texas)," Cooper explained. "Just the aura of being a Dallas Cowboy, I mean, you can't beat it."Even with the Cowboys facing multiple tough decisions beyond what to do with Cooper, there's a good chance the receiver will get his wish. COWBOYS OFFSEASON GUIDE:Key free agents, team needs, cap space & moreDallas' priority, rightfully, is 26-year-old quarterback Dak Prescott, who also is set to hit unrestricted free agency in the absence of a contract extension or a tag. But Prescott has the leverage in contract negotiations with the team, which is bad news for Cooper.One of two things will happen with Prescott before the March 16 deadline for teams to tag players: Either the Cowboys and the QB will reach an agreement on a contract extension, or the team will franchise tag him, likely with an ex[......]
