At the same time, San Jose backup Aaron Dell has permitted only two goals in three consecutive contests, all wins. While we don’t expect the Sharks to recklessly topple their goaltending hierarchy, you might see a little more Dell and a little less Jones while the club’s No. 1 regains his rhythm. Shelf Jones for other netminding fantasy options, if possible, until then, and by all means enlist Dell in relevant spot-start and daily fantasy situations. The Sharks have a back-to-back set with the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks this Thursday and Friday.
Corey Coleman, WR, Cleveland Browns (23.2 percent): While Josh Gordon continues to draw the headlines in Cleveland with good reason, Coleman is also a wide receiver with promise. While he went catchless in Week 13, Coleman has at least 9.4 points in PPR scoring in the other three games since he returned from a hand injury. In a deeper league or a 12 team league in which you start three wide receivers, Coleman has value.
Tis the season … for NFL coaches and general managers to be fired. The onslaught started this week with the Giants’ duo of Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese becoming the first out the door.
New York is a surprising team to be leading the firing charge. The Giants are similar to the Steelers as family-held teams that believe in organizational stability and are never quick to make changes. But co-owner and team president John Mara had seen enough of the quagmire his team had fallen into, especially in light of McAdoo’s poorly executed benching of two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning.
