When the Washington Redskins decided that Nate Sudfeld wasn't among the 53 players in their camp worthy of a roster spot in September of 2017, they either underestimated the skills that he possessed, or they failed to coax those skills out of him. Take your pick. The Redskins cut Sudfeld, and were interested in signing him back to their practice squad, to which Sudfeld essentially said thanks, but no thanks, I'm going to Philly. After one year as an apprentice with the Eagles, Sudfeld already looks like a capable successor to Nick Foles as the backup to franchise quarterback Carson Wentz. Throughout 2018 Eagles training camp, Sudfeld displayed a pretty deep ball, decent velocity, good accuracy in the intermediate areas of the field, and better mobility than you would expect of a 6'6, 227-pound quarterback. However, he lacked consistency at times. Those glimpses of Sudfeld's skill set have carried over in to the preseason games. On Thursday, Sudfeld had his best showing as a pro in the … [Read more...] about Eagles turn Redskins’ trash into potential long-term find in Nate Sudfeld
The trades for Zach Britton and Nate Eovaldi may change the balance of power in the AL East, but did they do anything for Fantasy owners? by Chris Towers @CTowersCBS 1h ago • 3 min read More: Ten whose value may change at the deadline Not every trade shakes up the Fantasy landscape. Some, of course, feature stars of such staggering brilliance that we have no choice but to dive deep into the implications of them. And some feature the shell of Zach Britton, or Nate Eovaldi. That's not to say those moves won't have Fantasy implications, but the principals in the deal don't exactly require deep examination. Britton needs about 12 dominoes to fall in exactly the right order to be in line for saves in New York, while Eovaldi loses value with a move to Boston, if anything. Of course, there's something for Fantasy players to note in these deals: The prospects! The Orioles received Dillon Tate in return for Britton, while the Rays' biggest piece in … [Read more...] about Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Zach Britton, Nate Eovaldi trade fallout
Former middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre has his sights set on the featherweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov next not Nate Diaz. Following an impressive with over Michael Bisping in front of a sold-out crowd in the legendary Madison Square Garden Arena in New York City, it seemed as if the world of mixed martial arts was Georges St-Pierre’s for the taking. Unfortunately for the two division champion, his health forced him to relinquish his 185-pound belt and take some time away from the sport that he has dominated for over ten years.

Brandon Magnus/Zuffa LLC/Getty Images The biggest problem with the UFC in 2018 isn't that there are too many shows or that the belts have lost all meaning. The biggest problem is that most of the fan-favorite fighters just aren't active at the moment. Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar are the hottest acts in WWE, Conor McGregor is in the middle of a prolonged contract dispute with the UFC, Jon Jones is still dealing with his drug testing issues...the list goes on. An interesting bit of news on that topic came out Tuesday, however, as Dana White spoke on the UFC Unfiltered podcast (h/t FloCombat). There, he made the surprise announcement that the company was looking to bring back two of its AWOL stars, Nate Diaz and Georges St-Pierre, for a fight against one another. Details on St-Pierre's return have been scarce since he vacated the middleweight title in December. Jeff Bottari/Zuffa LLC/Getty Images While the bulk of the reactions were skeptical, the proclamation did spawn an … [Read more...] about The Question: Would Nate Diaz vs. Georges St-Pierre Be Terrible or Great?
