This is from our high school scouting report on Fournette.

During a recent track meet, the St. Augustine star posted a 100m time of 10.68, absolutely elite for a running back of his size, which gives him the speed to break long runs to the outside — he's not just a downhill, between-the-tackles runner. As a result, arm tackle attempts are not nearly enough at the high school level to bring down Fournette, in part because he does a good job in traffic of getting low and behind his pads to present the smallest possible tackling surface, a key trait to ...

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the best player in Bucks-Raptors.

There are many good and smart reasons that you can think of for why the Toronto Raptors will beat the Milwaukee Bucks. There’s one reason to think they won’t, and that one exhibited itself in the Bucks’ 97-83 Game 1 win: they don’t have the best player on the floor. Giannis Antetokounmpo was incredible on both ends of the floor as Milwaukee stole Saturday’s game on Toronto’s home floor. Let his stat line do the talking: 28 points on 13-of-18 shooting, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals...

Their supporting cast is quite talented

Get ready to hear the names of Mark Scheifele and Nikolaj Ehlers for a long time. The pair emerged this season as an offensive threat worthy of mention. Scheifele especially, who has 76 points in 73 games to lead the Jets offense as a 24-year-old. Their supporting cast is quite talented, too, with the likes of Blake Wheeler, Dustin Byfuglien, Bryan Little, and Mathieu Perreault playing big parts in making the Jets offense the eighth-deadliest in the NHL this season. Add some college hockey...

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is still trying to recover from a nagging hamstring injury

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has a back injury but practiced on Thursday and is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Bryant has missed just one game since the start of the 2011 season. Fellow Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) missed another practice and his status is uncertain for Sunday. Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) missed practice as well. The Eagles got good news on Thursday with wide receiver Riley Cooper returning to practice after missing...

The Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels are set to play games at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena where flags were flown on Sunday.

Four years, $32.5 million for Britt, who posted his first 1,000-yard season at age 29. The good news for the Browns is that he did that with Case Keenum and Jared Goff throwing him the ball, so he should get better QB play even with the Browns’ relatively low standards in that department. What makes this deal a bad one is that it likely means the Browns are moving on from Terrelle Pryor. They reportedly balked at a rate starting at $10 million per season, but they also spurned one of the few ...

Dan Quinn is 19-13 in the regular season and 1-0 in the playoffs as coach of the Falcons

You might argue that McCarthy was unlucky to lose the coin toss and have his defense give up a season-ending touchdown within three plays from scrimmage after his decision to kick the extra point, that it was the worst possible outcome for his decision. That's fair. It's also fair to say he got the best possible outcome for making the same sort of bizarrely conservative mistake again last Sunday against the Cowboys. Again, playing as an underdog on the road, McCarthy's team took an early lead...

Who deserves credit for the Cowboys’ success on offense? Ezekiel Elliott? Dak Prescott?

Who deserves credit for the Cowboys' success on offense? Ezekiel Elliott? Dak Prescott? The offensive line? If only it were that simple. But analytics long ago debunked the idea that you need to run to set up the pass-and besides, even the worst teams in the league rush more than 20 times Kyle Rudolph Authentic Jersey a game, so you especially don't need to run to set up fake handoffs. It starts with good ...

Melvin Gordon is dominating for the Chargers

San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon has turned into a major force. In Sunday’s win over the Titans, Gordon rushed for 196 yards, the most by a Chargers player since LaDainian Tomlinson had 198 against the Raiders in 2007. His 261 yards from scrimmage were the second-most in a game in Chargers history, surpassed only by Tomlinson’s 271 in 2002. Gordon has nine rushing touchdowns in nine games in 2016, after recording none in 2015. Dolphins rookie running back Kenyan Drake's 96-yar...
