After weeks of frustration, the Philadelphia Eagles top fantasy options going into the season -- Jordan Matthews and Ryan Mathews ?? finally managed to put together a game in which both produced for their owners, something we havent been treated to since Week 1.Just two weeks after it was suggested he had taken a backseat to Darren Sproles, the running back Mathews ran 19 times for 109 yards and two touchdowns, while also punching in a two-point conversion. And while it wasnt a massive performance, the wide receiver Matthews hauled in six receptions on 10 targets for 73 yards -- good for 13 points in point-per-reception leagues.While this was the running backs first 100-yard rushing game of the season, the two touchdowns pushed him to eight on the season -- a career high. And the wideout now has 35 targets over his last three games, with 23 receptions for 226 yards in that span.LETS SQUEEZE IN ONE MORE MATTHEWSJust to cover all the Mat(t)hews bases, Titans wideout Rishard Matthews has been a fantasy force lately, with six touchdowns in his last six games. He has 15 targets for nine receptions and 126 yards in his last two, with three touchdowns.Rishard Matthews was a popular sleeper pick in the preseason, but disappointed early before his recent run of success. Hes owned in just 47 percent of CBSSports.com leagues.JEREMY LANGFORD MAY BE FANTASY RELEVANT AGAINJordan Howards ankle/Achilles injury may open the door for Jeremy Langford to once again be the main back in Chicago. Langford missed four weeks of the season with an ankle injury, but did score touchdowns in each of his first two games before being supplanted by Howard.Langford isnt a sure thing to win back the starting job, however, as KaDeem Carey has been quietly effective in sparse playing time. Carey has 109 yards to Langfords 132 and 43 receiving yards to Langfords 48. Plus, Bears coach John Fox is famous for giving fantasy players fits, as he historically likes to use two running backs in his offense.SAMMIE COATES HAS DISAPPEAREDBefore an untimely finger injury, Steelers wide receiver Sammie Coates was on pace for a breakout campaign, with 50 or more yards in each of his first five games. In his last four, however, Coates has managed just one catch for 4 yards.Sundays loss to the Cowboys may have been the low point for Coates, as he was targeted just once in a game where Ben Roethlisberger threw 46 times for 408 yards and two wide receivers -- Darrius Heyward-Bey and Markus Wheaton -- were out with injuries.The return of tight end Ladarius Green isnt going to help Coates, nor has the fact that LeVeon Bell is averaging nine targets per game and has nearly as many receiving yards (360) as rushing (433). And fellow wideout Eli Rogers has 15 targets over his last two games, with 145 yards and a touchdown. This leaves Coates on the outside looking in.Its not outside the realm of possibility for Coates to connect on a couple long passes and finish next week with 100-plus yards, but theres no logic that would lead a fantasy owner to start him before a game like that; only head-scratching, what-do-I-do-now frustration afterward.Coates is owned in 61 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, while Rogers is owned in just 23 percent. Those ownership numbers should probably be flipped.MISCELLANEOUS- Jamison Crowder has 28 targets over his last three games and three touchdowns in his last four. While his next few weeks are a mixed bag of favorable and tough opponents (Packers, Cowboys, Cardinals, Eagles), Crowder has a tremendous playoff schedule, with games against the Panthers and the Bears in Weeks 15 and 16.- DeVante Parkers eight targets were his most since Week 2, and he finished Sunday with a surprising 103-yard game. After a fairly tough matchup against the Rams in Week 11, Parker gets the 49ers and Ravens, who have given up a combined 30 touchdowns to wide receivers this season. Parker is owned in 63 percent of CBSSports.com leagues.- Stefon Diggs looks to be a focal point for Pat Shurmurs Sam Bradford-centered offense. In the two games with Shurmur as offensive coordinator, Diggs has seen 29 targets. More importantly, he has converted 26 of those into receptions, producing 244 yards.- Tennessee has been on fire lately, but beware the Titans Week 13 bye -- which is paired with a bye for the Browns, as well. A fantasy team fighting for a playoff spot will have to go into the final week of the regular season without Marcus Mariota, DeMarco Murray, Delanie Walker, Terrelle Pryor, Gary Barnidge, Isaiah Crowell, and Duke Johnson.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com Wholesale Dolphins Jerseys . -- Kyrie Irvings last-minute 3-pointer helped seal another victory for Cleveland -- and the Cavaliers longest winning streak since LeBron James left. Cyber Monday Dolphins Jerseys .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. http://www.cheapdolphinsjerseys.net/ . JOHNS, N. Dolphins Jerseys Online . Philadelphia is 2-0 against the Senators this season and scored five goals in each victory. The Flyers recorded a 5-0 win in Ottawa on Nov. 12 and then earned a 5-2 home decision on Nov. 19. The Flyers have claimed three straight and four of the last five encounters with the Sens overall and Philly has won two in a row and three of its past four tests in Canadas capital city. Authentic Dolphins Jerseys . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. INDIANAPOLIS -- Diana Taurasi scored 20 points, DeWanna Bonner had 11 of her 18 points in the fourth quarter and the Phoenix Mercury beat the Indiana Fever 89-78 on Wednesday night in a single-elimination game of the WNBA playoffs.Tamika Catchings, who played in her final game, and the entire Indiana team knelt with their arms intertwined during the national anthem. Two members of the Mercury, Kelsey Bone and Mistie Bass, also took a knee.This game of basketball is important for a lot of reasons. One of them is bringing people together. Even uniting people, Catchings said about the impromptu kneeling during the national anthem. Well, we thought it was important to have a voice about something greater than basketball.WNBA President Lisa Borders, who was in Atlanta for the playoff game between the Dream and Seattle backed the players choice to kneel.I support our players expressing their views on important social issues, Borders said in a statement. Standing for an anthem is a sign of respect and a demonstration of unity across many cultures throughout the world. The call to action is for all of us to invest time and resources to help rebuild and strengthen our communities. And we have been actively working with the players on this next impactful effort.Briann January made a reverse layup with 2:39 remaining to pull Indiana to 77-72 andd she drew an offensive foul on Taurasi on the other end.dddddddddddd Erlana Larkins had a putback on Indianas next possession to cap a 10-1 run to make it 77-74.But Phoenix answered with a 6-1 run -- on free throws by Taurasi, Penny Taylor and Bonner -- for an 83-75 lead.Brittney Griner added 18 points, nine rebounds and three blocks for Phoenix, which will play at New York on Saturday. Bonner was just 2 of 5 from the floor in the first half.When I got in the second half, I told myself I was going to be aggressive, Bonner said. Because I felt like I was a little tentative and a little scared in the first half.Catchings and Marissa Coleman each scored 13 points as all five starters for Indiana scored in double figures. Shenise Johnson made two free throws to tie Tiffany Mitchells franchise record with 42 consecutive made free throws.Catchings left the floor at the final buzzer to a standing ovation from the crowd and she hugged every Indiana teammate, including a long embrace with January. Then she hugged each player on the Phoenix team.Before the game, Catchings received the 2016 Kim Perrot Sportsmanship Award prior to the opening tip. She is the first three-time winner since the awards inception in 1997.
