Not gonna lie. Between Blount and blunts, I shied away from Le'Veon Bell in late drafts. Looking like an uh-oh early on.

Michael Lee

Bravo, @JBsportscaster: http://t.co/7KpkdcFCT4

Mike Prada

In my experience, tons and tons of NBA officials are on Twitter, just not as themselves.

Chris Miller

Flacco 4/4 28 yards on that TD Drive. #Ravens up 7-0

Ben Standig

Everyone please be quiet. Bono is singing.

Ben Standig

Any leagues out there give players points for drawing pass interference calls? I wouldn't vote against such a rule if easily implemented.

Ben Standig

(Insert joke here) RT @EliotShorrParks: Le'Veon Bell got super high on that play.

Ben Standig

If you're itching for some fantasy transaction action now, see if Lorenzo Taliaferro is available. Ravens RB sitch uncertain. Worthy flyer.

Ben Standig

Bush. Fully practiced today. Even those loving JF can't say for sure how much work he gets RT @MofongoFF: Forsett or Reggie Bush as a flex?

Ben Standig

You'd be selling low, so dont do that. Wait RT @Tim_VB: Thoughts on Torrey for the season? I'm shopping him in my league, should I hold off?

Ben Standig

Keep Crowell there as well. Sounds like Martin will play. RT @Proudhorn: Isaiah Crowell or Doug Martin? I'm keeping Ridley on the bench.

Ben Standig

(Looks up rankings...) WR22 on my list. Bills have nice D, but I'm using him. RT @BrendanDarr: Thoughts on Mike Wallace this week?

Ben Standig

Circling back on Jeffery-Wheaton. Im a huge Wheaton backer. Ravens light at CB tonight. If he's the backup plan, go for it. Jeffery iffy.

Ben Standig

I've never been a guy that runs around touting Locker. Still not all in for all of 2014. But for Week 2 versus Dallas, sign me up. My QB10.

Ben Standig

If so, then I'm also too bold. I'm starting Locker over Ben in one league. RT @EaglesFinn80: Starting Locker over Roethlisberger...too bold?

Michael Lee

Props to my man @Chris Vivlamore for getting the Danny Ferry audio before TMZ.

Ben Standig

I'm waiting out Jeffery's injury situation assuming I have any kind of decent sub handy. RT @WizardsNation: Hey Jeffery or Wheaton?

Ben Standig

Wayne in PPR over KB (flip in standard). I'm not a Steve Smith guy for now. RT @ship_shape423: ppr Steve smith kelvin b or Wayne

Ben Standig

I'd go Allen this week. Safest, but potent. RT @OBtoojiveforyou: Kelce or Niles Paul. Other guys available Tim Wright & D Allen.

Ben Standig

Sitting here until kickofff so I'll answer fantasy ?'s if you got them. Also: Ravens-Steelers fantasy preview bit.ly/Zi1xWg

Ben Standig

JB the best. Showed that yet again. RT @Bruce Arthur: James Brown rose to the moment in a way that so few broadcasters can. That was great.

Ben Standig

Bump up Wheaton RT @SultanofStat: Lardarius Webb most notable inactive tonight. Plus for Steelers' passing game; Ravens awfully thin at CB.

Mike Prada

Jarring part about the Danny Ferry audio: a) how casually he says “has a little African in him” b) how little it adds to the critique

Kevin Seraphin

Welcome @KeilyNaye make sure y'all follow her

Zac Boyer

And, finally, it seems like Trotz is open to finding a role for Burakovsky on the Capitals this year but he'll have to earn it in preseason.

Zac Boyer

Trotz hopes to get Wilson and Dmitry Orlov (wrist) back by end of the preseason. "They're both young guys. Hopefully they recover quickly."

Zac Boyer

Tom Wilson was cleared to skate "the other day" after breaking his left leg, Trotz said. Wilson knows he's behind and is focused on return.

Zac Boyer

Marcus Johansson, Trotz said, could be a fit as a center as well. "He's at that age, 24, where there should be a bump up in his game."

Zac Boyer

Kuznetsov, Trotz said, spent the last several months getting acclimated to living in Washington, which he thinks should help out mentally.

Zac Boyer

Among other nuggets from Trotz's presser: The coach is thrilled with Evgeny Kuznetsov's development, thinks he can handle playing center.

Kevin Seraphin

Can u see me??? Lmao #kslife http://t.co/7hGsKlU3Yd

Zac Boyer

Capitals coach Barry Trotz said he plans to have Alex Ovechkin play both left wing and right wing, but he'll go into camp as a left wing.

Michael Lee

Who had Klay Thompson & Kenneth Faried as the breakout guys from FIBA World Cup?

Mike Prada

Meet the new Team USA game. Same as the old Team USA FIBA games.

Ben Standig

Often labeling an athlete "best in the world" at a specific skill is hyperbole. Saying Steph Curry is best shooter in the world is not.

Zac Boyer

The #Redskins' injury report has Kai Forbath added today with a right groin injury. He was limited in practice.

Michael Lee

We're all glad he showed some restraint RT @crabdribbles Boogie was ready for a fight vine.co/v/OzLQ3wAWP0Z

Ben Standig

So I'm just catching u on US-LTU. Sounds like everyone is Love-ing Klay, Rose hasn't bloomed and Lithuania is closer than they s/b.

Ben Standig

Whoa, DeMarcus almost just launched a right cross to Jonas' face. Whew.

Michael Lee

Kenneth Faried, that was a grown Manimal move

Mike Prada

It is very weird how Curry hasn’t played more point in this tournament.

Upon further review, I wasn't thrilled with parts of my Week 2 fantasy rankings. Better now. Updated on @csnma bit.ly/1CSzlIO

Ben Standig

Once upon a time I saw Robert Mueller walk up my courtyard and into the house directly across from my mine. Been keeping an eye open since.

Zac Boyer

Ovechkin, on if he'll play left wing or right wing this year: “Ask [Trotz] about it. He’s the coach and he’s going to make decision.”

Zac Boyer

Alex Ovechkin said it took him approximately two months to recover from the right knee injury he had at the World Championships.

I got "Playin With The Boys" stuck in my head this morning, so no matter what's happening in your life, you're having a better day than me

Lots of strong anti-NFL rants from @kevins980 right now. Good stuff.

Oh. Different than the live anthem, but still... RT @NBCdianna: Rihanna will be singing the Thursday Night football anthem. #NFL #Ravens

Wow, really? That's some irony. RT @NBCdianna: Rihanna will be singing before the Ravens game tonight in Baltimore.

Checking in for the first day of hockey rookie camp. For #Redskins news today, follow @Todd_Dybas and @Tom_Schad.

Mike Prada

Paul George has two older sisters. Hopefully both of them talked to him in the last hour.

Ben Standig

Is this wildly believed? MT @CDCarter13: friendly reminder. buy low on Torrey Smith while widely believed he is BAL's 3rd option. He's not.

Bases loaded. No outs. No runs. The reason why I can't get too excited about the Royals is that they have to work so hard to score

Michael Lee

I'll admit, I wasn't excited about the Royals dealing Wil Myers to get James Shields but man, Shields is really good.
