The Ravens discovered their offensive identity as a running team in recent weeks, but they won’t go far in the postseason unless they elevate the passing game. They’ve been one of the top running teams in the NFL in each of the past four seasons, but it hasn’t translated to postseason success. They failed to make the playoffs last year and have one postseason victory in the previous three. In ...

ATLANTA — No coach is handed a perfect team, though some teams are more imperfect than others. There are two ways to handle this. One is to shrug and say, “I need better players.” This generally leads to unemployment. The other is to do the best you can with what you have. Arthur Smith inherited a team that had gone 18-30 over three seasons despite having spent big on high-profile talent. The ...

LOS ANGELES — Rams coach Sean McVay and his players make no secret about their desire for star free-agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to return to the team. They keep a locker with his name on it and they have made numerous public comments about him since training camp. But the defending Super Bowl champion Rams’ pursuit of Beckham apparently has not been as smooth as one of the routes run by ...

FORT WORTH, Texas — Buffalo knew what Cole Beasley did not. He was done, and done. The Bills cut the controversial wide receiver in the offseason, and the ex-Cowboy openly lobbied for another chance with another team to keep playing. He got one with the Tampa Bay Bucs. Beasley caught four passes in two games, and quit pro football for the second time in his career. Expect this one to stick. ...

Each week I'll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football — I define "widely available" as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues — and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster. Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week. Here are my best bets off the waiver wire for ...

CLEMSON, S.C. — It was the avoidability of it all that seemed to rankle Devin Leary the most, not merely a missed opportunity but one N.C. State never really fully grasped. It wasn’t just that the Wolfpack couldn’t seem to get out of its own way at times. It was that the flaws N.C. State couldn’t overcome could be seen so far in the distance. Months even. There was anger in the Wolfpack ...

In less than two quarters CeeDee Lamb went from Antonio Bryant to Dez Bryant. Lamb, one of a handful of Dallas Cowboys receivers to be handed the hallowed No. 88 jersey, played like the receiver the Cowboys need/expect him to be when they shoved Amari Cooper away to Cleveland in exchange for a Target gift card. Took a while, but Lamb showed up. Until the fourth quarter against the New York ...

PHILADELPHIA — Perhaps my greatest regret as a sportswriter is expecting too much too soon from Donovan McNabb. Now, I find myself doing the same with Jalen Hurts. As my father used to say: Wise men make mistakes. Fools repeat them. We should try not to repeat the mistakes we made with McNabb. Hurts is a third-year, second-round pick who has started just 21 NFL games. He has a passable arm, ...

LOS ANGELES — It took just one step for Jordan Addison to know he had the upper hand. The signs were there in the moments before the USC wideout's dazzling 75-yard score last week, if you knew where to find them. First, there was the single deep Stanford safety, expected to deter USC quarterback Caleb Williams from chucking it downfield to the best deep-ball receiver in college football. ...

This three-speed Crosley turntable comes in an adorable baby blue hue, printed with a classic black-and-white image of the Beatles on the inside of the lid. A built-in bluetooth receiver allows you to stream music wirelessly to its stereo speakers, which uses an Audio Technica stylus for improved sound quality.

Who knows what is actually going on with Kyler Murray, but A.J. Green and Christian Kirk are both free agents following this season. Williams is a home run hitter with game-breaking speed. He’s also a weapon on special teams, as a returner — he returned two kicks for touchdowns in 2021 — and in coverage. The dynamic receiver injured his left knee against Georgia, but still grades out as a first-rounder if his rehabilitation remains on schedule. Top needs: WR, RB, TE

Kendrick was a three-year starter for Clemson before transferring to Athens. He's an asset against the run and thrives in man or zone coverage. Kendrick is vulnerable to receivers with top-end speed, but who isn't?

Williams is a home run hitter with game-breaking speed. He's also a weapon on special teams, as a returner — he returned two kicks for touchdowns in 2021 — and in coverage. The dynamic receiver injured his left knee against Georgia and will have an MRI to determine the severity.

If you're a fantasy player who is excited about Chase Edmonds' potential as a featured back now that Kenyan Drake has moved on, don't get your hopes up. Harris has evolved into an all-around threat. Of course, he's a powerful runner with his size (6-foot-2, 230 pounds), but he's also developed into a great receiver out of the backfield and he's improved significantly in pass-protection. Top needs: CB, RB, OL

Is it me or does it seem like the Eagles are always in need of help at receiver? I don't suspect Waddle's broken ankle will impact his draft stock much. He's already healed and was off to an incredible start — 25 receptions, 557 yards and four touchdowns in four games — after showing promise as a sophomore receiver and return man. A healthy Waddle is the most explosive all-around athlete at receiver in this class. Top needs: WR, CB, LB
