. It was an unusually poor performance for the game-managing, typically-low-risk Smith, as he hadnt had a game with that few fantasy points since 2012

BATON ROUGE, La. Cheap Jerseys UK Free Shipping . -- Les Miles didnt get much chance to talk about the opponent No. 21 LSU is facing this week.There were too many questions about the embattled coachs own program coming off a season-opening upset loss to Wisconsin . Why did LSUs offensive line have trouble blocking for star running back Leonard Fournette? Why wasnt LSUs passing game broadened as promised? Why didnt junior quarterback Brandon Harris appear to have improved during the offseason? Will Miles consider a quarterback change?Despite those questions -- and the fact LSU has plummeted 16 spots from its preseason No. 5 ranking -- the Tigers (0-1) arent expected to struggle against Jacksonville State, which plays in the NCAAs second-tier Football Championship Subdivision.But Jacksonville State also is seen as one of the top programs of its size in the nation, ranked fifth in FCS polls. If the Gamecocks were ever primed for a program-defining upset in 102,000-seat Death Valley, it would be on Saturday night.It gives us a chance to prove that we can play against anyone, said prolific Gamecocks dual-threat quarterback Eli Jenkins, who has accounted for 1,000 more yards of offense than any other player in JSU history. It gives us a chance to show what we got.Jacksonville State has a number of transfers from top-tier Football Bowl Subdivision programs -- including former LSU receiver Kevin Spears, ex-Auburn running back Roc Thomas and ex-Kentucky defensive tackle Regie Meant -- and the Gamecocks gave Auburn fits last season.They have a lot of guys that transferred in, so were looking forward to the challenge, LSU safety Jamal Adams said. Were looking forward to (facing) some (former) SEC guys.Adams stressed that LSUs margin for error is so thin, the Tigers cant afford to underestimate anyone.Weve got to come out and play like were in the playoffs every game, Adams said. Were in adversity now.---Some things to know about LSUs home opener against Jacksonville State:HARRIED HARRIS: Miles has shielded Harris from the media since he went 12-for-21 for 131 yards with one TD against two interceptions last week. But it didnt sound like Miles was ready to give up on his season-opening starter. He said he hoped that if backup Danny Etling takes the fields, it will be in mop-up duty on the heels of an better outing by Harris. I know the capability Harris has, Miles said. We just need for that capability to continue to come.RECORD SMASHER: Jenkins accounted for 331 yards of offense in his teams season-opening victory over North Alabama last week, giving him 8,688 yards of total offense for his career. He also owns the school record for touchdowns with 66 (36 passing, 30 rushing). Hes a great quarterback for those guys and we have to be ready, LSUs Adams said. We definitely have to honor him with his run but stay on our toes and be prepared for the pass.FACING FOURNETTE: Its not clear how many carries Fournette will get. He got up favoring his left leg after the final carry of a 138-yard performance last week. Miles insists hes fine, but also conceded that Fournette was allowed to sit out practice to rest earlier this week. With Derrius Guice, Darrel Williams and Nick Brossette providing depth at running back, it might not make sense to play Fournette much this weekend.FORMAL INTRODUCTION: LSU and Jacksonville State have never played before. In addition, the largest crowd ever to witness a JSU game is 87,451 in Auburn last season, a number likely to be exceeded at Tiger Stadium -- depending on how many ticket-holders disgusted by last weeks LSU performance decide not to show up. The Gamecocks are 1-6 all-time vs. the SEC, with the lone win coming against Mississippi in 2010.LINE ITEMS: Miles has to shuffle his offensive line this week because guard Josh Boutte has been suspended on game for a flagrant foul at the end of last weeks loss, when he flatted Wisconsin defensive back DCota Dixon as he celebrated his game-sealing interception. Miles indicated that Maea Teuhema, who spent the offseason transitioning from guard to tackle, will be back at guard this week to fill in for Bouttee.---AP College Football website: NFL Jerseys UK Outlet . 9.

Shall we rename the Winners section the Newtons?Cam Newton seems to have a stranglehold on the fantasy leaderboard these days, but Sunday didnt present only good news for Week 1s members of the 20-point club, as Antonio Brown, A.J. Green, Carlos Hyde and Alex Smith let their owners down.As we do each Sunday right here, we recap the weeks winners and losers from a fantasy perspective, complete with applicable game and historical data. Check back after the conclusion of the 1 and 4 p.m. ET (and, when applicable, Sunday Night Football) games for our picks of the weeks best and worst.WinnersCam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers: Ho-hum. Another week, another spot atop the fantasy leaderboard, as Newtons 29 fantasy points were tops through the Sunday 4 p.m. ET games. If his lead holds, it would mark the fourth time in the past seven regular-season weeks that he has been the top scorer, as he also led in 2015 Weeks 13 (tied with Marcus Mariota), 15 and 17. Since the beginning of last season, the only other players to top the leaderboard multiple times have been Devonta Freeman (2015 Weeks 3-4), Matthew Stafford (2015 Weeks 6 and 12, though he was tied for the lead in Week 12) and Russell Wilson (2015 Weeks 12 and 14, tied with Stafford in Week 12).Fantasy owners who made Newton the No. 1 quarterback off the board -- many of them bold enough to spend as high an overall selection as the No. 13 indicated by his ESPN ADP -- have been pleasantly rewarded thus far.Travis Benjamin, WR, San Diego Chargers: No Keenan Allen, no problem. Benjamin, signed to a four-year, $24-million contract by the Chargers during the offseason, became the teams de facto No. 1 wide receiver in the wake of Allens season-ending injury. In Week 2, he made a statement in his first full game in the role, topping all wide receivers through the 4 p.m. ET games with 23 fantasy points. It sure seems that Benjamin has a thing for Week 2s, as his career-best score, and only one greater than his total on Sunday, came with the Cleveland Browns, 29 fantasy points in 2015 Week 2. He also made the most of his targets, catching all six for a 29-point PPR day. To put that into perspective -- and perhaps cast some light on the Chargers wide receiver pecking order going forward -- Benjamin saw at least six targets in eight of his 16 games for the Browns in 2015, and he matched teammate Tyrell Williams (12 fantasy points on six targets) for the team lead in the category.Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Panthers: Benjamin has played a big part in Newtons success these first two weeks, following up his 15 fantasy points in the NFL Kickoff game with 22 on Sunday, matching Corey Coleman for second among wide receivers through the 4 p.m. ET games. After whispers that Benjamin might be on a snap count to begin his first season since recovering from a torn ACL, he played 49 of 68 offensive snaps in Week 1. Well soon get a final snap count for his Week 2, but the 37 fantasy points he has in consecutive weeks shattered his previous best of 35, set in Weeks 10-11 of 2014. Its quite an encouraging comeback so far for the 2014 first-rounder.Corey Coleman, WR, Cleveland Browns: He certainly justified his No. 15 overall selection -- first among wide receivers -- in the 2016 NFL draft on Sunday, scoring 22 fantasy points to match Benjamin for the positions second-best score through the 4 p.m. ET games. To put Colemans effort into perspective, only six different Browns wide receivers (rookies or not) have scored more than that in a game since the team rejoined the NFL in 1999: Travis Benjamin, Antonio Bryant, Braylon Edwards (four times), Josh Gordon (four times), Quincy Morgan (twice) and Dennis Northcutt.Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, New England Patriots: One could make the claim that Garoppolos week warrants more of a negative spin, but he did score 21 fantasy points for his owners who were bold enough to start him in 9.6 percent of ESPN leagues, that all before getting injured roughly four minutes shy of halftime. In doing so, Garoppolo, still a free agent in 83.8 percent of leagues, exceeded the magic 20 threshold we demand from the position. Its the most scored by a quarterback in the first half of a game since three managed more in 2015 Week 15: Brock Osweiler (27, en route to 28), Cam Newton (24 of 41) and Kirk Cousins (22 of 35).Isaiah Crowell, RB, Browns: Through two games, its apparent that Crowell is the Browns starting/go-to running back, and he concluded Sundays 4 p.m. ET games with 20 fantasy points, second so far for the week and tops among Sunday players. More importantly, though, he had 18 carries and 19 touches to Duke Johnson Jr.s three and seven, after winning those battles in Week 1 by margins of 12-3 and 15-6. Three of Crowells best single-game fantasy-point totals have come in his past six regular-season games (26 in 2015 Week 14 was his best; this weeks 20 is now tied for his second-best; 14 during 2015 Week 16 was his fifth-highest total).Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons: After dropping 24 fantasy points on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1, Ryan followed it up with another 27 in Week 2, giving him a league-leading 51 through two weeks. Scaling the 25 point fantasy plateau is a rarity for Ryan, as he had gone 20 games between performances of at least that many (2014 Week 144 was his last one). Discount NFL Jerseys UK. Perhaps more importantly for future-matchup evaluation, Ryans game came at the expense of the extremely disappointing Oakland Raiders defense, which has now afforded a league-leading 57 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks (they allowed 30 to Drew Brees in Week 1).Melvin Gordon, RB, San Diego Chargers: For the second consecutive week, Gordon scored a touchdown -- remember that he didnt have a single score in 2015 -- and he managed exactly 17 fantasy points for the second straight game. That gives him 34 for the season, which is more than he had in any six-game span in 2015. He might also be in line for a more prominent role in the coming weeks following Danny Woodheads early departure due to a knee injury.LosersFantasy owners of Doug Martin, Thomas Rawls, Arian Foster, Danny Woodhead and Ameer Abdullah: All five running backs made early exits from Sundays games due to injury, with none reaching 10 carries and only Rawls totaling 10 touches before his departure. For suggestions on who to pick up and/or how to deal with this rash of running-back injuries, check out Eric Karabells blog later this evening.Rawls stat line was the one that stood out: He ran seven times for minus-7 yards, finishing with one fantasy point merely thanks to his three catches for 15 yards. Thats the worst rushing yard total by a running back who had at least five attempts in a game since LaRod Stephens-Howling had minus-14 yards on eight carries in 2012 Week 3, and Rawls three stuffs (held to a loss) matched his 2015 Week 4 career high.Todd Gurley, RB, Los Angeles Rams: Well, at least he wasnt one of the many running backs injured in Week 2, but Gurleys six fantasy points on Sunday were only three more than Abdullah (the leader from the previous group), and they gave him back-to-back games in single digits for only the second time in his career (2015 Weeks 12-13). Queue the panic amongst Gurleys owners, and while its seemingly outrageous to remind them that this was a wretched matchup for him on paper and that they should remain patient, there are some who might have their doubts about him.To give you a sense of how special a talent Gurley is, consider that even with these two stinkers, he now has 186 fantasy points through his first 15 career games, comparing favorably to the running backs in the chart to the right.Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: Queue panic among Browns fantasy owners who made him the No. 1 consensus pick during the preseason. OK, OK, thats exaggerating -- no one should be that reactionary -- but after he was started in 99.9 percent of ESPN leagues, Browns mere three fantasy points (seven in PPR) mightve sunk a lot of his teams. He managed 11 targets in this one, and only one other time in his career did he score so few or fewer fantasy points in a game where he was targeted at least that much: two (six in PPR) on 11 targets in 2012 Week 6.A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: Browns counterpart across the field didnt fare much better, converting his eight targets into three fantasy points (and just five in PPR). Such a low score is even more unusual for Green than it is for Brown, as this was only the 10th time in Greens 78 career games (12.8 percent) than he scored three or fewer fantasy points; Browns was his 18th in 88 career games scoring three or fewer (20.5 percent).Carlos Hyde, RB, San Francisco 49ers: One of five running backs to reach the 20-point fantasy threshold during Week 1 -- he had exactly 20 -- Hyde was promptly started by owners in 58.4 percent of ESPN leagues on Sunday, but provided his teams one-tenth of that, or two points. Hyde takes a lot of flak for playing on a losing team, a point more strongly made in 2015, but bear in mind that in only one of his eight games played last season was he held to as few as two fantasy points (Week 4).Alex Smith, QB, Kansas City Chiefs: Only a handful of fantasy owners -- he was started in 7.6 percent of ESPN leagues -- absorbed Smiths three-point fantasy disaster on Sunday, but those who did probably play in deeper or two-quarterback leagues, where the impact was more severely felt. It was an unusually poor performance for the game-managing, typically-low-risk Smith, as he hadnt had a game with that few fantasy points since 2012 Week 6 (two) when he was a member of the 49ers.Golden Tate, WR, Detroit Lions: Known more for his PPR-scoring prowess rather than in standard, Tate let owners down in both formats on Sunday, scoring only one fantasy point (and three in PPR) for the owners who started him in 52.8 percent of ESPN leagues. Through two games, Tate has just five fantasy points on 16 targets; he had scored more than five points in 18 of his 32 career Lions games entering the 2016 season.Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Though Andrew Lucks Weeks 1-2 drop-off ended up being the greater of the two (a 24-point decline), Winstons fantasy point total dropped from 25 in Week 1 to a mere three this week, fueled by four interceptions and a lost fumble. It was by far a career-worst for the sophomore, who never scored fewer than 12 fantasy points in a game in 2015 (Weeks 3, 4 and 10).
