Syracuse offense can’t gain traction against North Carolina State front 7 in 33-25 loss

first_imgRALEIGH, N.C. — It didn’t matter who it was or where it came from. The North Carolina State front seven brought a stifling, all-in blitz Saturday afternoon that Syracuse wasn’t prepared for.In the string of plays that ended the third quarter, N.C. State senior Bradley Chubb rushed toward Eric Dungey. The All-ACC defensive end flattened Dungey after being credited for a QB hurry, leaving SU in a third-and-21 situation. The next play, defensive tackle B.J. Hill and linebacker Jerod Fernandez were all over SU’s junior quarterback, forcing Syracuse to punt. N.C. State capitalized on the quality field possession, marching down the field for five minutes to grab a 15-point lead in an eventual 33-25 win.“Their defensive front is one of the best we’ve gone against,” said Dungey, who threw for 385 yards and a touchdown.As the Wolfpack grinded out long drives and capitalized on SU penalties, the Syracuse offense couldn’t gain traction in its limited time on the field. In a 33-25 loss at Carter-Finley Stadium, SU tallied a season-low 59 rushing yards, 44 of which came from Dungey. The anemic run output is emblematic of both N.C. State’s (4-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) defensive line production and Syracuse’s (2-3, 0-1) inability to establish an attack on the ground. It was also representative of the diverse attack that sacked Dungey three times for 24 negative yards and six QB hurries. That front kept SU to only seven first-half points and fended off any attempt at a late comeback.“We knew that if we got on them early it would make it tough for them,” N.C. State wide receiver Stephen Louis said, “so we wanted to get them out of their comfort zone.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textChubb racked up two sacks for 20 yards, breaking around the end to get to Dungey for two QB hurries as well. In the fourth quarter, he took a jab step and followed it up with a few hard pounces to find room around the right edge and sack Dungey for a loss of nine. On the next play, Darian Roseboro batted away Dungey’s pass attempt.When asked this week how to block Chubb, SU head coach Dino Babers said: “IDK. The guy is flying all over the field.”This became apparent early. So did the fact that SU was no match for N.C. State’s 11th-ranked run defense. Babers and players said the offense needs to move faster to gain traction. That inability to find a pace was compounded by the Wolfpack defense. On SU’s second-to-last drive, Dungey completed a pass for no gain to Steve Ishmael because Jarius Morehead had gotten to him for a hurry.Syracuse has combined for 135 rushing yards over the last two games, a figure the Wolfpack had reached by halftime on Saturday. The Wolfpack defensive front bolstered its entire operation. N.C. State rushed for three touchdowns, finding spaces on the edge. Nyheim Hines and Jaylen Samuels combined to run for nearly 200 yards and a pair of scores.When asked why SU has struggled to stop opponent pass rushes, Babers pointed to the team’s youth.“Our young people are not as big and physical as the other people we’re playing,” Babers said, then added: “This is a really, really good defense. I told people I think they’re better than LSU. I know they’re better than LSU.”Syracuse’s problems may run deeper. SU has lost three of its last four. All three losses have come against blitz-heavy defenses, dating to Middle Tennessee State (Sept. 9),then-No. 25 Louisiana State (Sept. 23) and N.C. State.Several times Saturday, SU junior running back Dontae Strickland had no room to run. He was met by a pack of N.C. State tackles awaiting his next move, well aware there was little breathing room. In the third, Dungey raced to his right because Chubb pounced on him from the other side. Dungey’s elusive showed, as he completed the pass for a six-yard pickup, but it spoke to Chubb’s activeness.Syracuse’s second half offense nearly bailed out that of the first. Senior receiver Ervin Philips broke the ACC record with 17 catches. Babers said the last two comeback attempts are encouraging. Saturday, Dungey moved to fifth in program history in total offense. He finished with 385 yards and a touchdown, but he was sacked three times and on several occasions forced to release the ball sooner than he would have preferred.“We knew their front seven were really good,” Senior offensive lineman Jamar McGloster said. “They showed it today, and we were just focused on stopping them up front. The D-line, that’s the heart of the defense, that’s what we were focused on all week. We came a little short.” Comments Published on September 30, 2017 at 6:29 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Week 13 Perfect DraftKings Lineup and Week 14 NFL DFS tips

first_imgWEEK 14 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup builderHopefully you know by now that the results and graphic below are from RotoQL, the best DFS research site you can find. If you’re looking for a serious advantage in your DFS contests, be it NFL, NBA, MLB, or PGA, RotoQL’s tools and features can help guide you to victory. With expert projections and the ultimate lineup building tool, the RotoQL DFS Optimizer, you’ll be ready to dominate.Week 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST  | KickerNFL DFS: DraftKings Perfect Lineup for Week 13Josh Allen, QB, BillsOK, what the hell is going on? This makes two weeks in a row for Allen in the perfect lineup, and the truth is he should have had even more points if he had been able to connect with a wide open receiver in the end zone at the end of last week’s game. The key to Allen’s DraftKings success — aside from his dirt-cheap price — has been his rushing ability. Last week he hit 99 yards (after two kneel-downs dropped him under 100), and this week he racked up 135 yards on only nine carries. He only accounted for two total TDs, but the rushing yards are giving him a higher floor than most QBs. With a favorable home matchup against the Jets in Week 14, Allen is once again a great GPP play thanks to his low cost.Christian McCaffrey, RB, PanthersAnother week, another appearance from McCaffrey in the perfect lineup. At this point, there’s really no excuse for not having in DraftKings, where receptions count for a full point. Once again, he went over 100 rushing yards and had at least nine catches. Expect more of the same in Week 14 against the Browns, who are one of the worst teams at covering RBs out of the backfield.Tarik Cohen, RB, BearsCohen doesn’t have as much rushing upside as McCaffrey, but he’s every bit as dangerous of a receiver. Last week, he caught 12 passes for 156 yards and added another 30 rushing yards on eight carries. The wild card for Cohen was his one-yard passing touchdown. Obviously, that’s not something you can count on every week, but Cohen has become one of Chicago’s prime red-zone receiving threats. Against the Rams in Week 14, Cohen should once again see plenty of work as the Bears try to keep up.​WEEK 14 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsZay Jones, WR, BillsUnlike last week, Allen is joined by a teammate in the perfect lineup. Jones finally did what many expected him to do last year, catching four of nine targets for 67 yards and two scores. Jones’s extra affordable price is a big reason why he’s on here, but in a week with few multi-TD scorers, he stands out regardless. It’s tempting to think this is the start of something for the talented second-year pro, but given the fact he had zero catches on one target last week, we’re not getting too excited yet.Chris Godwin, WR, BuccaneersGodwin got back into the end zone for the first time since Week 6 and notched his second 100-yard game of the season. While Adam Humphries has also been consistent lately, Godwin reminded us that any of Tampa’s receivers can go off in a given week. The Bucs feature the type of offense that is gold for DFS owners, making guys like Godwin and DeSean Jackson (when active) great GPP swings. Also worth noting is Carolina has quietly been torched by WRs recently, allowing nine wide receiver touchdowns over the past five games.Dante Pettis, WR, 49ersPettis performed well for the second straight game in the absence of Marquise Goodwin (personal). Garbage time has undoubtedly helped in both matchups, but with 206 yards and three TDs the past two weeks, Pettis has to be on GPP radars as long as Goodwin is out. With CB Chris Harris breaking his leg last week, Pettis has more value than you might originally think against the Broncos in Week 14.WEEK 14 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsTravis Kelce, TE, ChiefsWhen we make the “All Perfect Lineup Team” at the end of the season, Kelce will definitely be the tight end. After another 12 catches, 168 yards, and two TDs in Week 13, Kelce made a strong case to be a “must-own” in all formats regardless of his price tag. Week 14 will present an interesting challenge, as Kansas City faces a tough Ravens’ pass defense. Many will likely look to fade Kelce, but he remains the highest-upside TE on the board.Todd Gurley, FLEX, Rams The stars-and-scrubs NFL DFS strategy is on full display in the Week 13 DraftKings perfect lineup. Cheap no-names appear at QB and all three WR spots, while arguably the three most automatic plays at RB and TE proved to be worth their sky-high price tags. Picking the right no-names is never easy, which is why many daily fantasy football owners don’t fully commit to this lineup-building approach. But you don’t need to be perfect for it to pay off in most GPP tournaments, especially as we get later into the season and randomness reigns.Once again, we see a QB-pass catcher stack in this week’s perfect lineup, though Josh Allen and Zay Jones wasn’t exactly a popular one leading into this weekend’s game. Congratulations if you picked either, and even more congratulations if you had enough budget to jam in Christian McCaffrey, Todd Gurley, and Travis Kelce. If that’s how you started your lineup, you might have been “forced” to take Allen and Jones. Like Kelce and McCaffrey, they can’t set Gurley’s price high enough. He flirted with disaster by passing up a sure touchdown toward the end of the game, but he scored two plays later anyway, calming down irate fantasy owners. He faces a brutal Week 14 matchup against the Bears, but main slate owners won’t have to worry about that since it’s a prime-time tilt. Texans D/STCleveland came into this one on a roll, but astute fantasy owners knew the Browns had been taking advantage of highly favorable matchups. On the road against a tough defense, it wasn’t a shock to see Baker Mayfield regress and look like a rookie. Stats are important, but context matters just as much.last_img read more
