A look at the U.S. team in the 41st Ryder Cup on Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at Hazeltine National in Chaska, Minnesota. Players are listed in the order they made the team.DUSTIN JOHNSONAge: 32.Ryder Cup record (2 teams): 4-3-0.World ranking: 2.Career victories: 12.Majors: U.S. Open (2016).2016 victories: U.S. Open, Bridgestone Invitational, BMW Championship.Ryder Cup partners: Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar.Outlook: Johnson has emerged as the best American, if not the best player in the world, at the moment. He missed the last Ryder Cup, when he was sitting out for six months to seek help for what he described as personal challenges. He can win when hes not putting his best. Hes hard to beat when he is.---JORDAN SPIETHAge: 23.Ryder Cup record (1 team): 2-1-1.World ranking: 4.Career victories: 10.Majors: Masters (2015), U.S. Open (2015).2016 victories: Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Colonial.Ryder Cup partners: Patrick Reed.Outlook: Spieth has yet to win a singles match in his two appearances in a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup. He is playing reasonably well; it just doesnt seem like it because last year was among the best. He and Dustin Johnson were formidable in fourballs at the Presidents Cup last year.---PHIL MICKELSONAge: 46.Ryder Cup record (10 teams): 16-19-6.World ranking: 14.Career victories: 45.Majors: Masters (2004, 2006, 2010), British Open (2013), PGA Championship (2005).2016 victories: None.Ryder Cup partners: Corey Pavin, Jay Haas, Davis Love III, Tom Lehman, David Duval, Jim Furyk, David Toms, Chris DiMarco, Anthony Kim, Hunter Mahan, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Keegan Bradley.Outlook: He is playing on his 11th straight team, an American record. And he has qualified for every one of them, a record that will be hard to beat. But which Mickelson will show up at Hazeltine? The player at Royal Troon who took Henrik Stenson to the wire? Or the guy who can miss fairways and short putts? Plus, he has taken on a big leadership role for this team and thus carries a little more of the burden.---PATRICK REEDAge: 26.Ryder Cup record (1 team): 3-0-1.World ranking: 8.Career victories: 5.Majors: None.2016 victories: The Barclays.Ryder Cup partners: Jordan Spieth.Outlook: Reed is tough in match play because he makes it personal. He whipped up the Scottish crowd by hushing them with his finger over his lips, and hes sure to whip up the home crowd. But it starts with good golf, and his golf was ordinary at the Presidents Cup. His only victory was fourballs with Spieth.---JIMMY WALKERAge: 37.Ryder Cup record (1 team): 1-1-3.World ranking: 16.Career victories: 6.Majors: PGA Championship (2016).2016 victories: PGA Championship.Ryder Cup partners: Rickie Fowler.Outlook: He was among the best rookies at Gleneagles last time, but he was only 1-3-0 at the Presidents Cup. His season was pedestrian until he put it all together to win the PGA Championship, and he showed more good form was on the way by contending at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Hes one of the better putters on the U.S. team.---BROOKS KOEPKAAge: 26.Ryder Cup record (rookie): 0-0-0.World ranking: 22.Career victories: 2.Majors: None.2016 victories: None.Ryder Cup partners: None.Outlook: The only American rookie in this Ryder Cup, he missed a month because of ankle injury, returned and sewed up a spot on the team with a tie for fourth in the PGA Championship. His results have been ordinary during the FedEx Cup playoffs, and he was one of three Americans who missed the Tour Championship.---BRANDT SNEDEKERAge: 35.Ryder Cup record (1 team): 1-2-0.World ranking: 23.Career victories: 8.Majors: None.2016 victories: Farmers Insurance Open.Ryder Cup partners: Jim Furyk.Outlook: Snedeker went from winning the FedEx Cup to playing in his first Ryder Cup in 2012. He was at his best the opening two months of the season. Driving and power are not strengths. Putting is what makes him dangerous. His only partners in the Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup -- Jim Furyk, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson -- will not be at Hazeltine.---ZACH JOHNSONAge: 40.Ryder Cup record (4 teams): 6-6-2.World ranking: 27.Career victories: 12.Majors: Masters (2007), British Open (2015).2016 victories: None.Ryder Cup partners: Chad Campbell, Scott Verplank, Stewart Cink, Hunter Mahan, Jason Dufner, Matt Kuchar.Outlook: He made the team on the strength of his British Open victory -- last year. Johnsons best finish this year is fifth place at Bay Hill, and he never really contended there. He switched golf equipment at the start of the year. But he is tough in match play because he keeps the ball in play and his strengths typically are the wedges and putter.---RICKIE FOWLERAge: 27.Ryder Cup record (2 teams): 0-3-5.World ranking: 9.Career victories: 6.Majors: None.2016 victories: Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.Ryder Cup partners: Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson, Jimmy Walker.Outlook: He has yet to win a match in the Ryder Cup, and his record in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup is 1-6-5. But he is popular with his teammates and is versatile when it comes to pairings. He wasted a good chance to make the team outright at The Barclays. This will be his first Ryder Cup on home soil.---J.B. HOLMESAge: 34.Ryder Cup record (1 team): 2-0-1.World ranking: 21.Career victories: 4.Majors: None.2016 victories: None.Ryder Cup partners: Boo Weekley.Outlook: Holmes and Mickelson are the only American players who have been on a winning Ryder Cup team. Holmes is long and aggressive, but he can be shaky with the putter. His last victory was the Shell Houston Open in April 2015. He won the B-flight at the British Open by finishing third (14 shots behind Henrik Stenson).---MATT KUCHARAge: 38.Ryder Cup record (3 teams): 4-5-2.World ranking: 17.Career victories: 9.Majors: None.2016 victories: None.Ryder Cup partners: Stewart Cink, Dustin Johnson, Jim Furyk, Bubba Watson, Zach Johnson.Outlook: Kuchar won the bronze medal at the Olympics, the highlight of his year thus far. He is reliable in match play, and easy to match based on having five partners in three Ryder Cups. His last PGA Tour victory was in April 2014 at Hilton Head. Buccaneers Jerseys China . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jordan Whitehead Jersey . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. http://www.cheapbuccaneersjerseys.us/tampa-bay-buccaneers-alex-cappa-jersey/ . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ronald Jones Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Cheap Nike Buccaneers Jerseys . Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. Fantasy football is about a whole lot more than your first overall pick or your first five picks or, heck, even your first 10 picks.All are important, but its the entirety of your player acquisitions that matters. This includes every draft-day selection as well as?in-season pickups. Your homework isnt done with your starting lineup. It extends until your final pick of the draft and then into each weekly waiver period.Productive contributors appear in-season all the time, often from the least expected places. Kirk Cousins, drafted in only 6.7 percent of leagues last season, scored the second-most fantasy points (107) during the ESPN playoffs (Week 14-17) and the eighth-most for the season. Jeremy Langford, selected in 5.2 percent, managed 93 fantasy points in the eight games after his emergence in Week 9, and Thomas Rawls, selected in 0.3 percent, tallied 106 points in the seven games he started. Allen Hurns, selected in 4.7 percent, finished 14th among wide receivers in fantasy points (155).Unearthing these contributors -- these deep sleepers, if you will -- is crucial to your teams success, whether its at the draft table or in Week 9. Your mission as a fantasy owner is to get to these players first, whether its with a draft-day pick or, more likely, by composing a watch list of deeper sleepers so that youll be prepared to add them in-season in the event that they fall into favorable on-field circumstances.What follows below is my list of 12 deep sleepers for 2016, players who by all rights might not -- and perhaps should not -- be drafted in an ESPN standard league. Thats the very definition of a sleeper: value coming from the least expected place (mid-round picks elevating themselves to superstar levels are breakouts, in my book).Whether youre in an extremely deep league and need names to tuck away for the final rounds, have drafted a rock-solid starting lineup and can afford to speculate with your 14th-round standard-league pick (always save rounds 15-16 for defense and kicker) or have identified a draft-day roster weakness and need some names for an in-season watch list for early-season pickups, this list is for you.To be clear, these are sleepers, which means you wont find Dak Prescott, Christine Michael, Tajae Sharpe or Clive Walford included. All are potential values, but all of them have been more prominently discussed of late. This list takes things a step deeper than them; bear in mind that means a greater likelihood of player failure (hello, Bryce Brown from the 2015 list!).The repeats: From the 2015 list, KaDeem Carey, Virgil Green and Zach Zenner fit the well, maybe I was just a year early repeat-candidate list. In the interest of expanding the sleeper pool, Ill let you flip back to last years list if you wish to read more about their specific skill sets.Trey Burton?|?TE |?Philadelphia EaglesA quarterback-turned-wide receiver-turned-tight end, Burton might lack the size of your prototypical tight end (hes 6-foot-3, 235 pounds), but he brings the kind of athleticism that might make him an ideal choice for a sizable snap-count boost, should Doug Pedersons Eagles decide to roll out a healthy number of two-tight end sets.A former special-teams player, Burton generated some positive buzz throughout training camp and even snuck in some first-team work during the third preseason game on Saturday. Just 24, hes more of a dynasty-league speculative pick than a redraft commodity, but on a team such as the Eagles, who finished fourth and seventh in tight end targets the past two seasons (working backward), Burton could quickly move into relevance.Jeff Driskel?|?QB |?San Francisco 49ersThis years quarterback sleepers are not starters and begin with Driskel, a player Id be rather surprised to see sit on the bench for all 16 games. The No. 207 overall pick in the draft, Driskel has good arm strength and mobility, but more importantly, as a quarterback experienced with zone reads from his college days, he should make a quicker-than-average adjustment to Chip Kellys scheme in San Francisco.In short, his statistical floor might be greater than that of your typical rookie quarterbacks -- at least among those not deemed franchise-caliber right out of the gate. Now consider the 49ers depth chart: Driskel is third behind?Blaine Gabbert, a checkdown specialist, and Colin Kaepernick, who is in severe danger of not making the team.Tyler Ervin?|?RB?|?Houston TexansTheres so much buzz surrounding Lamar Miller in Houston this season that few people are thinking about his backups, but if youve been following the preseason trends, it appears that Ervin has a leg up on Alfred Blue to serve as Millers initial caddy.A versatile yet smallish back, Ervin has explosive speed that could serve the Texans in a variety of facets, including returns, slot receiver snaps and perhaps a handful of carries in the event that Miller needs a breather. Keep that in mind if your league is PPR and/or awards for return yardage, as Ervin could make an immediate impact in those formats, and if youre in a league with extensive benches, hes a worthy final-round insurance policy for Miller.Tyler Gaffney?|?RB?|?New England PatriotsGaffney graded extraordinarily well at the 2014 combine, and the Patriots suavely scooped him off waivers when the Carolina Panthers attempted to stash him on injured reserve in July 2014. Now fully recovered from the injuries that cost him each of the past two seasons, Gaffney is part of the wide-open mix in the Patriots backfield, as the team seeks to fill the void left by Dion Lewis knee surgery.Bill Belichicks plans are as difficult to decipher -- and arguably much, much more so -- as any coachs, but hes quick to cling to the hot hand, which could reveal itself at any moment. Gaffney shared first-team reps in Fridays preseason game and has averaged 4.5 yards per carry through three August contests, so he might be closer to a prominent role than youd think.Tyler Higgbee?|?TE?|?Los Angeles RamsRookie tight ends are typically risky investments -- only six have scored as many as 70 fantasy points in a season this century -- and that makes Higbee a poor redraft-league draft pick, but in dynasty leagues, hes a worthy stash, and its conceivable that he could be a second-half contributor.ddddddddddddA converted wide receiver, Higbee possesses an attractive combination of size (6-foot-4, 243 pounds) and good hands, which gives him rare Year 1 touchdown upside at the position. Off-the-field concerns had a lot to do with his late selection in the draft, but he has opened eyes in camp and could quickly emerge in a starting role.TJ Jones?|?WR?|?Detroit LionsAlthough the offseason signings of Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin pushed him down the depth chart, Jones role in the Lions offense bears watching in the seasons early weeks. Jones, who missed the entire 2014 season because of nerve damage, concluded 2015 with a 16-fantasy-points-on-15-targets run in his final five games, then caught coaches attention with a strong OTA performance with the first-team offense.With the Lions moving to a more up-tempo offense in 2016, there will be more snaps to go around, and a 35-year-old Boldin might require some rest, which could free up slot receiver snaps for Jones. In the event of an injury, Jones could get 35-40 snaps per game in a potential 650-attempt passing game.AJ McCarron?|?QB |?Cincinnati BengalsArm strength might not be McCarrons strong suit, but hes an accurate passer who got valuable experience in a four-start stretch to conclude 2015 that included a playoff start against the Pittsburgh Steelers.His 39 fantasy points during the three games in the regular season wont wow you, but McCarron had his moments. He was remarkably effective in the Week 16 game against the stingy Denver Broncos defense, for instance. With Andy Dalton now healthy, McCarron wont be fantasy-relevant initially, but hed be one of the more attractive backups if pressed into starting duty once again.J.J. Nelson?|?WR?|?Arizona CardinalsHes quick, to say the least. Among receivers with at least 10 catches last season, Nelson averaged by far the greatest average depth per target (22.1), and his 5.3 yards after catch were not only a whole yard greater than the league average but also easily best among receivers who averaged at least 15 yards in average depth of target.Now all Nelson needs is a prominent role, which might be difficult to grab on a depth chart led by Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown. Still, opportunities pop up in the NFL, and both Floyd and Fitzgerald are free agents at seasons end, which could perhaps lead the Cardinals to consider expanding Nelsons role as the season progresses.Paul Richardson?|?WR?|?Seattle SeahawksHis recovery from Jan. 27, 2015, ACL surgery effectively ruined his 2015 -- he appeared in only one game before suffering a hamstring injury that ended his year -- but Richardson generated a healthy amount of 2014 camp buzz and appeared to be settling into his own late that season before getting hurt.He has since spent offseason time working out with quarterback Russell Wilson, and in the Seahawks most recent preseason game on Thursday, he was even sneaking in first-team snaps -- a hint that he might be regarded as part of the teams wide receiver rotation.Eli Rogers?|?WR?|?Pittsburgh SteelersIn an offense in which?Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Sammie Coates tend to draw all the attention, Rogers ascension as the Steelers likely slot receiver to start the season is one of the preseasons more relevant developments. Foot surgery cost the undrafted free agent his 2015 rookie season, but this preseason, he has been getting work with the first team, yet not generating much draft buzz for it.At 5-foot-10, 187 pounds, Rogers might seem smallish, but hes a quick, elusive receiver with the requisite experience out of the slot, dating back to his days at Louisville. Hes capitalizing on what has been a poor camp for Coates, and in the Steelers high-octane offense, he could be an especially attractive stash in PPR formats.Terrance West?|?RB?|?Baltimore RavensHe might be the weakest fit for the sleeper label of any of the 12 on the list, but at the same time, seeing his name on said list might be more apt to elicit an ugh than a positive reaction.The Ravens are going to include West on their opening-week roster, and whats more, his arrow is easily pointing upward more than that of any of the running backs on said roster. I know, I know, West was a bust as a rookie in 2014, and he has been traded and released by a pair of running back-starved teams since, but he spent the offseason losing weight and getting into shape, has been drawing raves for his explosiveness in camp and is getting the majority of short-yardage work this month (read: goal-line carries). Meanwhile, Justin Forsett and Javorius Allen havent overwhelmed this preseason, and Kenneth Dixon will miss a month because of a torn MCL, which paves the way for West to be fairly involved, even if in an initial timeshare.Tyrell Williams?|?WR?|?San Diego ChargersLike Rogers, Williams has put himself in position for a possible Week 1 starting job and has earned additional first-team snaps since Stevie Johnson was lost for the season to a torn meniscus in his right knee. Reports out of camp have Williams running crisper routes, a key improvement for a player considered more of a developmental prospect as a 2015 undrafted free agent out of Western Oregon.Williams had eye-popping Pro Day numbers and showed his big-play potential with an 80-yard touchdown grab behind Broncos Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib in Week 17 last season. Considering the Chargers attempted the third-most passes in 2015, Williams is a worthy stash in leagues of 14 or more teams.
