Disneyland. Hollywood. Miles of sunny beaches. To the list of Southern California attractions, add a cluster of temporary modular buildings tucked into the quiet suburbs of Ventura County.
Suh cast an imposing presence Friday, seated between Coach Sean McVay and General Manager Les Snead, and likely will do so again when the season starts. Suh is expected to play nose tackle in the Rams’ 3-4 base defense, alongside Aaron Donald, the 2017 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
The Rams’ offseason spending has been so prolific that they needed to make a roster move Friday simply to fit Suh’s one-year, $14-million contract under the salary cap. The Rams released cornerback Kavyon Webster, who has been recovering from Achilles and shoulder injuries, and shaved $3.5 million off their cap total.
Meredith would have been a nice complement to Crabtree and Brown, and we heard at the end of last month that Baltimore was higher on Meredith than other players the team has recently brought in for a visit (Willie Snead and Michael Floyd).
In most formats, goaltenders will get the most points. Of course, this is assuming most teams will ride one goaltender through the playoffs. In the end, the Cup-winning goalie will get 16 wins and a couple of shutouts sprinkled in. If your league awards two points per win, that’s already more points than the top scorer of the playoffs is probably going to get. Malkin’s 36 points in 2008-09 is the only example from the past 10 years of a player eclipsing 32 points.
If there’s no limit to how many players you can take from each team, all your eggs should be in a minimal number of baskets. Pick your teams that you think will go far and take players from those teams. Sean Monahan and Alexander Radulov both scored better than a point per game during the playoffs last year, but that doesn’t help you much if they don’t get out of the first round.
