Here are players set to breakout in the second half of the fantasy season to provide your team valuable stats when it matters most, for the playoff push and playoffs.
DeMarco Murray – Murray is the player to own right now in my opinion who can make a rise to fantasy stardom come the second half of the fantasy football season. Murray is a talented back who can run and catch the ball out of the backfield. the Cowboys have been lacking a consistent running back in their game plan and that is what Murray is. Murray he will continue to come on strong when he is given his opportunities and make Felix Jones a thing of the past. Murray will thrive in the Cowboys offense that is already an explosive offense with the ability to put up vast amount of points in short spurts. try to add/trade Murray for your team as he will pay dividends when it matters most.
Steven Jackson – Jackson this season has not been looked very highly upon in the fantasy world despite providing useful fantasy performances in nearly every game he has played. He was injured early in the season which only lowered his value to his owners. Use this to your advantage now Grab him while his value is still at a RB2 level and make a move for him to add to your roster. He has been the staple to the Rams offense and is still the workhorse. Yes he carries injury risk, but he can do it all and I believe will break out the second half of the season.
Brandon Lloyd – Lloyd was recently traded to the Rams, and now joins his former coach, Josh McDaniels, who is the OC of the Rams. He knows how to utilize Lloyd and will do so in St. Louis. Lloyd steps into the number one receiver role immediately and will be targeted at a high amount the rest of the season. He has been disappointing this season thus far, but it is not his fault being on the Broncos who had quarterback troubles. He will provide owners with a great fantasy 2nd half of the season and is worth the investment price you will pay.
Darius Heyward-Bey – here is my long shot for the latter part of the fantasy season. Heyward-Bey has been coming on as of late and with the upgrade in quarterback from Jason Campbell to Carson Palmer. I believe he will continue to improve his game, and provide stats of a WR2 in normal formats. He has the speed to kill and being in a run heavy offense, single coverage will always be there to allow him to break open downfield for the big plays.
Woods closed with a 3-under 69, sweeping his arm when the final putt dropped, then slamming down his first in a celebration that was a long time coming. it had been 749 days and 26 official tournaments since he last won on Nov. 15, 2009 at the Australian Masters, back when he looked as though he would rule golf as long as he played.
Alabama edged Oklahoma State in the final round of voting Sunday and will play the top-ranked Tigers in an all-SEC BCS national title game on Jan. 9 in New Orleans.
The Cowboys made a late surge by beating Oklahoma 44-10 on Saturday night, and closed the gap between themselves and Alabama in the polls. But it was not enough to avoid the first title game rematch in the 14-year history of the BCS.
The Tigers (13-0) beat the Tide 9-6 in overtime on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa.
Alabama (11-1) finished second in both the Harris and coaches’ polls by a wide enough margin to make up for the fact that Oklahoma State was ahead in the computer ratings.
The Cowboys (11-1), champions of the Big 12, will play in the Fiesta Bowl against Stanford from the Pac-12.
STILLWATER, Okla. — Thousands of fans stormed the field and tore down goalposts after Oklahoma State’s 44-10 victory over archrival Oklahoma on Saturday, leaving at least 12 people injured, including one who were airlifted to a hospital.
Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis says he doesn’t know what more stadium security could have done to prevent fans from getting injured while storming the field following a Big 12 championship-clinching win.
NEW YORK — Attorneys for one of the alleged sex abuse victims of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky say his New York Times interview contains an “unconvincing denial and a series of bizarre explanations” for Sandusky’s behavior.
In a written statement released Saturday, the attorneys for one of Sandusky’s eight accusers say the former coach’s comments wrongly cast Sandusky as a “victim,” which further harms their client and the other alleged victims.
DALLAS — The suddenly splurging Miami Marlins landed their second big free agent in a matter of days, agreeing Sunday night to a $106 million, six-year contract with All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, a person familiar with the negotiations told The associated Press.
After adding All-Star closer Heath Bell for $27 million over three years, the Marlins gave the NL batting champion a deal that includes a club option for 2018 that would make the contract worth $120 million, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not yet been announced.
NEW YORK — Miguel Cotto battered a one-eyed Antonio Margarito over nine lopsided rounds then won a TKO decision amid confusion in the corner before they came out for the 10th on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.
Cotto (37-2-0) earned a punishing measure of payback for his loss to Margarito three years ago. With the New York crowd going wild for the Puerto Rican Cotto, he was never seriously threatened and retained his 154-pound title, shuttering Margarito’s right eye to cause the stoppage.
SEVILLE, Spain — Rafael Nadal recovered from a terrible start and beat Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (0) Sunday to give Spain its fifth Davis Cup title.
Nadal endured his most lopsided set defeat in the competition as Del Potro fired forehand winners at will, with the Spaniard failing to hold his first four serves to trail 1-0, 40-0 by the second game of the second set.
LAKE LOUISE, Alberta — Lindsey Vonn won the super-G at Lake Louise on Sunday to complete a sweep of this weekend’s World Cup races in her first competition since she announced she was going through a divorce with her husband of four years.
The American also won both downhills at the mountain resort west of Calgary. The only other woman to sweep all three World Cup races at Lake Louise was Germany’s Katja Seizinger in 1997.
BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Marcel Hirscher of Austria turned in a blazing final run to overtake Ted Ligety and win a World Cup giant slalom on Sunday.
Hirscher finished in a combined time of 2 minutes, 38.45 seconds, holding off Ligety by 0.16 seconds. Fritz Dopfer of Germany was third for his first podium finish.
KENNESAW, Ga. — Teresa Noyola scored from point-blank range Sunday to help top-ranked Stanford beat no. 3 Duke 1-0 and finally give the Cardinal their first NCAA women’s soccer title.

Boys Golfer of the Year: Jimmy Stanger, Jr., Gaither Why we picked him: Aside from a sluggish state tournament effort, Stanger was the most consistent golfer around. the Class 2A, District 9 individual champ (by five strokes), he posted a 36 average for nine-hole events, which dips to 35.8 when you toss in the 18-hole events before state. A week after his 3-under 69 at the district tourney at Temple Terrace, he shot 1-under 71 on a windy day in Winter Garden to place third at the Region 3 tournament and earn an individual state berth. Even his 36-hole effort at state, mediocre by his standards (15-over 159), was good enough for a top-30 finish. Proudest accomplishment: Though home-schooled, Stanger embraces the team format of prep golf. he pointed to the district tournament as his best day of the season, when the No. 6-seeded Cowboys placed third and earned a region berth. “we were not supposed to make it (to regionals) and that was fantastic.” Future plans: A year-round player, Stanger has a series of American Junior Golf Association events on his slate. he is ranked No. 5 in the state among 11th-grade boys by Golfweek. Did you know? The day of the Times’ photo shoot coincided with the three-year anniversary of the death of Stanger’s best friend, Harris Armstrong. Harris, who played with Stanger at Berean Academy, died of spinal cord cancer. Stanger has dedicated his prep and college seasons to him. …the third of four children, Stanger also plays piano and is proficient in Christian contemporary music. Coach of the Year Jim Govreau, Newsome: Govreau guided the Wolves to the best season in program history, by a par 5. the Wolves won Class 2A district and region crowns, and placed third at the state tournament. First team Brian Allen, Jr., Newsome: Steadiest player for team that placed third at state Tyler Bakich, Fr., Newsome: Wolves rookie was district runnerup, tied for 22nd at state Jimmy Jones, so., Freedom: Won 2A, District 10 title by three strokes in miserable weather Brian Lanoue, Sr., Jesuit: A-14 district champ had county’s top score (149) at state Chase Levesque, so., Durant: Qualified for 2A state tourney with third-place region effort Second team Ryan Gendron, Jr., Plant Zach Johnson, Sr., Plant Trevor Joseph, Sr., Steinbrenner Colin Julian, Jr., Newsome Joseph Trim, so., Jesuit Honorable mention Alonso: Eric Silver; Berkeley Prep: Paul Tsavoussis; Bloomingdale: Tyler Miller; Durant: Eric Modjeski; Gaither: Clyde Meadows; Hillsborough: will Clarke; Jesuit: JC Cirella, Chet Ghioto, Lucas Trim; King: Joe Scicchitano, Tyler Weed; Plant: Todd Sessums, Brad White; Plant City: Connor Hurst; Riverview: Donte Davis; Sickles: Matt Tinkey; Steinbrenner: Nik Karlolo; Tampa Catholic: Nilo Sanchez, Ryan Tamashiro; Wharton: Jorge Junquera Girls Golfer of the year: Laura Hendee, Sr., Plant Why we picked her: she owned the postseason, improving with each round. After edging teammate Kelsey Eisch by two strokes to win the Class 2A, District 9 tournament with 77 at Temple Terrace, Hendee shot 2-over 74 at Windermere Country Club to capture the Region 3 crown by a stroke. then, in a blistering culmination to her prep career, she shot even-par 72 on the final day of the state tournament at Howey-in-the-Hills’ Mission Inn Resort to finish in a five-way tie for second (5-over 149). Proudest accomplishment: Hendee points to her final 18 holes at state, where she posted the day’s third-best round in a field of 95. “it was really my irons on my second day,” she said. “I remember I hit eight of nine greens on the back nine.” Future plans: Hendee signed early last month with the University of Miami. Among her new teammates will be Boca Raton’s Christina Ocampo, who defeated her by two strokes to win the state title. Did you know? Hendee never played golf seriously until a few months before entering high school. An all-around athlete, she injured her right knee while playing tennis and took to golf at Palma Ceia while recovering. according to her mom, then-Palma Ceia pro Gil Gonsalves watched her swing a few times and deemed her a natural. …Hendee’s lucky number is 11, which she has inscribed on all her TaylorMade Penta balls. Coach of the Year Meg Jordan, Plant City: the 1985 Plant City graduate guided her alma mater to unprecedented success. Unbeaten in the regular season (capped by a dual-match win against Plant), the Raiders won Class 2A district and region team titles, and earned a program-best fifth-place finish at the state tournament. First team Kelsey Eisch, Sr., Plant: Top-four region finisher tied for 11th at 2A state tourney Belinda George, Sr., Plant City: Steadiest postseason player for team that placed fifth at state Emmy Martin, so., Academy of the Holy Names: Jags ace won Class A district, region titles Julia McQuilken, Sr., Riverview: UNF signee set a school nine-hole record (3-under 32) Madison Opfer, Sr., Durant: Tulane-bound Cougar earned fourth consecutive top-10 state finish Second team Claire Becker, Fr., Steinbrenner Kelsey Jensen, Sr., Plant City Shelby Johnson, Sr., Plant City Casey Pluchino, so., Academy of the Holy Names Kayla Poff, Fr., Plant Honorable mention Academy of the Holy Names: Mariah Diaz; Bloomingdale: Elizabeth Jackson; Freedom: Summer Moser, Teresa Romero; Gaither: Morgan Litchfield; King: Steffi Yo; Plant City: Kellyanne Hurst; Robinson: Caroline Gilhool; Steinbrenner: Sara Bair, Brooke Deal, Michelle Stein; Wharton: Shannon Clark

Another beautiful morning here in Beaver Creek! We start today with our first shot at the famous Holden Cabin right on the Beaver Creek Golf course. Becky is our first model of the day and our first western theme. Shepler’s Western Wear provided us some really beautiful cowboys boots and hats for this year’s calendar shoot that are perfect for quite a few of our locations. We loaded up the cars for the quick drive from Bachelor’s Gulch to Beaver Creek (just around the corner), unload our staff and equipment and get started. We have a 9 a.m. deadline to finish before the first round of golfers make their way to hole 14, right where we are shooting at Holden Cabin. Becky is stunning and in incredible shape. her job requires it as the Director of Fitness for a local fitness company and a Broncos Cheerleader. I love the setting of her photo and the way that it captures the feel of Beaver Creek.
Next up on the schedule was Tristan, one of our rookies. Anderson Cabin, right around the corner from the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch, was the setting for her photo. for Tristan, we decided on a snow shot and borrowed some really cool white furry Tecnica boots to complete her outfit. Right in the middle of her photo shoot, a huge storm rolled in and fast! We barely had time to get the equipment covered and Tristan covered before everything was soaked. 15 minutes later, it was clear and sunny!
Our next location was a little further up the mountain at the famous Trapper’s Lodge. This lodge is so cool! It is right on the ski run and during the winter, guests are shuttled up the mountain on the snow cats with their luggage. you can even hire a personal chef to cook for you all week while you ski and enjoy the scenery. We had originally scheduled to shoot 2 cheerleaders at the Lodge, but the weather would not hold up. Kara, another rookie to the team, enjoyed the stormy weather in the hot tub at Trapper’s Lodge until another major rain cloud rolled in and we headed down to find an indoor location for Lindsey.
The Ritz Carlton has several Penthouses on the top floors of the hotel that are privately owned. The management of the Penthouses was kind enough to let us shoot Lindsey inside and we were able to stay on scheduled despite the weather! Again, I can’t say enough how accommodating the Ritz Carlton staff has been for our hectic week in Beaver Creek. really incredible!
Our last shot of the day was Toni. We had been rained out the day before and were hoping for a beautiful sunset after a day of rain and sure enough, we got it! There is a beautiful lookout spot just up the road from the hotel and it was an amazing Broncos Sunset. so many Broncos fans stopped by to watch the shoot along with a few fans of other teams that we converted to the orange and blue.
More to come tomorrow!

The one-seeded juggernaut “Cowboys being Referred to As America’s Team”, at the time of writing this, is giving the prevent defense a one-sided beatdown unlike any its ever seen. That’s actually not entirely true, considering the nature of the prevent defense is that it gets beat on quite a bit, so this is quite literally nothing new. Yesterday on Twitter, I made the prediction that “Score, Commercial, Kickoff, Commercial” would win the whole thing and I stand by the prediction.
Today, we’ve got another one-seed in action as “Brett Favre’s Media Whoring” is taking on the ever-stupid blackouts. Remember folks, this is the elite eight … the final eight things in the NFL that we’ve deemed to be among the worst ever. We’ve got only a handful of matches left, so be sure to get your votes and discussion in. the end is near, we are all gonna diiiiiie! or uh, something. Watched little Nicky earlier.
This is a tournament of badness and as such, you need to be voting for the absolute worst of the two in any given matchup. I don’t think I need to be saying it at this point, but just so there isn’t any confusion … I know that people have been confused by ballots and instructions before. Vote for which one you think is more awful than the other, so in the end, we can truly have the worst thing in the NFL. Jump for a description of the two entrants in today’s matchup and a look at the rest of the elite eight.
(1) Brett Favre’s Media Whoring
To borrow a line from Fooch, I would sooner set myself on fire than give this man’s on-again off-again career my undivided attention. That’s not a word-for-word quote or anything, but I did take no small measure of joy from picturing Fooch lighting himself aflame. Then Niners Nation would be mine for the taking, and it would be an all-night alright pajama party, awww yeeeeah!
But yeah. Brett Favre. what a guy, right?
Wrong. He’s not a guy. He’s not even getting old. He’s a publicity machine manufactured by the government to see just how many times he can hook the American football watching population with the same story and his rugged good looks. After twenty years, he sort of lost his sheen, so he had to start taking pictures of his genitals. And now in every Wrangler Jeans commercial he does, every middle-aged woman on the planet is thinking about his Danny Woodhead, for some reason.
But I doubt he has anything left to do to grab our attention. I mean, I guess he can take a page out of Jim Miller’s book, but instead of kicking with no shoes on, he could play quarterback with no pants on. I guess people would watch that. I wouldn’t, that’s for sure. Well. I wouldn’t live … I might DVR it. I could watch it and feel better about myself in comparison.
That image aside … the man is a whore. A pretty damn good quarterback, but a whore, just as sleazy as Fooch is for his page views, Favre needs attention to survive. it sustains him, much like feasting on the young sustains Al Davis. He plays the media like none other, and the media knows it. the Favre Watch graphic and horn on the NFL Network was hilarious once. maybe twice. but even now, making fun of his media whoring is becoming a chore, because you should really only make fun of things you don’t actually mind. Please retire.
What a brainless proposition this entrant presents. If a team doesn’t sell out (or reach a specific number usually somewhere close to selling out), the league will blackout the game in its home market. in essence, if the 49ers did not meet their quota and you lived in the Bay Area, you would not be able to watch the game on television. Even the satellite networks will blackout your games, regardless as to whether or not you have a premium NFL package.
Their reasoning is that if you live in that area and you can’t watch the game on TV, it will convince you to head down to Candlestick Park and buy yourself a ticket.
Not a single person will ever have that line of thought. There isn’t going to be one guy that decides he’s going to attend a live football game because he can’t watch it on television, it simply wouldn’t happen. that guy might attend a game at some point, but it will be entirely unrelated to blackouts. They’ll either watch an online stream, find a buddy who can watch the game at his place (one block can be blacked out while the other is not) or simply do without. It’s that simple.
Blackouts does nothing but hurt the team and the fans. Please recognize how stupid this is, even if it’s not a huge worry for us 49er fans. Seeing as how we’re totally awesome. Well, most of us. that LondonNiner fellow is a shifty one.

Poll which is worse?
My wife and I are getting her father an NFL golf bag for X-mas and am looking for a good price. I know which one he wants, its a Wilson Cowboys golf bag, but all the online stores have either a Wilson, for around 199 to 229, or a "Datrek" that is usually about 10 dollars less. Both of the bags listed all have the same product description, and the same photo. are they the same???? Would like to know because I found one website that has the "Datrek" bag for 175 with free shipping. Thanks.
They are, indeed, the same. The Wilson bags are manufactured by Datrek. some sites list them as Wilson-Datrek or "Wilson by Datrek" bags.
Go for the Wilson and have a great Christmas!
