    Devising the perfect Daily Fantasy Sports strategy for the NFL can be a challenge, which is why I'm here to assist. On DraftKings, it's important to remember you're playing full-point PPR with bonuses if a player surpasses 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yards or 100 receiving yards. Here is my optimal lineup for Sunday's $3 million Fantasy Football Millionaire contest, but can be utilized as a ...

      DENVER — A contract for a new Colorado football coach — who’s expected to be NFL icon Deion Sanders — is now officially up for discussion by the Board of Regents on Sunday morning. The board announced Saturday that it has scheduled a special meeting for 10 a.m. Sunday to discuss, according to the public agenda, a “Personnel matter at CU-Boulder — athletics.” The announcement confirms that the ...

        KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The week begins with some film of the most recently played game, and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes often embarks on that process on the flight home. It allows him to more quickly move to tape of the upcoming opponent, which amounts to a collection of five or six relevant games. If that includes a recent matchup with the Chiefs, hey, even better. Usually. On occasion, ...

          There are a lot of important NFL games this weekend, with the season winding down and the playoff races starting to shape up. This time of year seems to be when the games become more interesting, as there is far more of a sense of urgency. The one game that is rather meaningless in the grand scheme of things is Browns-Texans, as neither team is in the playoff hunt. I guess I should qualify ...

            CHICAGO — Perhaps it would be in the Green Bay Packers’ best interest to put their four-time MVP quarterback on the shelf for the rest of 2022, to let Aaron Rodgers rest his battered ribs and take care of his broken right thumb. The Packers then could take a longer look at young Jordan Love and begin to make a more informed evaluation of their possible quarterback succession plan. Always good ...

              PHILADELPHIA — On the night of April 28, moments after he heard about his trade from the Tennessee Titans to the Eagles, star wide receiver A.J. Brown hit the football field and went through what he described as one of the “most intense workouts of his life.” “I thought, ‘If they’re going to trade me, it’s going to be one of the biggest mistakes they’re ever going to make,’ ” Brown recalled. ...

              PITTSBURGH — When Ben Roethlisberger retired after 18 seasons, it did more than bring to an end the longest chapter of one of the greatest players in Steelers history. It created what quietly was a landmark moment for the franchise. For the first time since even before Terry Bradshaw was drafted in 1970, the Steelers entered the 2022 season with two quarterbacks at the top of their depth chart ...

              FOXBORO, Mass. — After Thursday’s 24-10 loss to Buffalo, Patriots quarterback Mac Jones explained why he exploded during an expletive-laced tirade caught on Amazon’s game telecast that later went viral on social media. “Obviously, (I) just kind of let my emotions get to me but we’re kind of playing from behind. What I said was about throwing it deeper in the short (passing) game. I got to ...

              LOS ANGELES — Former Dodgers star Yasiel Puig could face trial Jan. 10. Puig has been charged with making false statements in a federal investigation of an illegal sports betting operation. He had agreed to plead guilty, but his attorney said Wednesday he would withdraw from that agreement and plead not guilty. Under the plea agreement, Puig would have been eligible for probation and had ...

              FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — One by one, the old Patriots axioms fell Thursday, a crumbling facade for a suddenly average franchise. Bill Belichick’s defense neutralizes an opponent’s strength? Bills receiver Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 92 yards and a touchdown, running through the ashes Justin Jefferson left after torching the Pats secondary last week. That same defense confuses quarterbacks? ...

              CHICAGO — It’s looking more likely that Justin Fields will be ready to play with a separated left shoulder Sunday against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field. The Chicago Bears quarterback was a full participant in practice Thursday afternoon at Halas Hall, moving him a step closer to returning after missing the Week 12 loss against the New York Jets. Fields suffered a ...

              A re-imagined NFL Pro Bowl is set to occur in February at Allegiant Stadium. The NFL Pro Bowl Games will be highlighted by several skills competitions, culminating in three flag football games. Tickets are available now and start as low as $35. The week kicks off Feb. 2 with the Pro Bowl Skills events pitting NFL stars against one another in competitions that will include previous fan-favorite ...

              Seated on a black chair in front of his locker stall, Miles Sanders paused in thought for several seconds Thursday afternoon. The Eagles’ starting running back then leaned over and superstitiously knocked his knuckles twice on a wooden platform before he offered his thoughts on what has worked so well in Year 4. “Just consistency,” Sanders said. “I don’t want to sit here and talk about luck, ...

              Here's a look back at Week 12's action, and fantasy advice for the week ahead: WEEK 12 RECAP Bills 28, Lions 25: I feel like if Nyheim Hines was going to be a factor for Buffalo on offense, we would have seen it by now. Hines’ primary responsibility has been returning kicks and punts. He only has one reception on three targets and two carries for -5 yards in four games. Cowboys 28, Giants 20: ...

              Matt Rhule’s voice was on the other end of the phone line in Nebraska, and he wanted to make sure Carolina Panthers fans understood a few things. “I’m not bitter about being fired,” Rhule said when we talked Thursday in what was his first interview with any Charlotte-area reporter since he was jettisoned as Carolina Panthers head coach on Oct. 10. But Rhule said there were some misconceptions ...

              The Dolphins’ defense has a unique perspective as it prepares for the San Francisco 49ers offense this week. For months, the unit has seen its own offense operate the Shanahan scheme that first-year coach Mike McDaniel has brought to Miami. Ahead of Sunday’s road game against the 49ers, the defense is leaning on all those resources as the unit seeks to replicate much of last week’s performance ...
