With the No. 32 pick in the NFL draft, the Minnesota Vikings select Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater.
It seems like every analyst has seemingly gotten on board with Bridgewater as a quarterback who should have a very solid, if not stellar career, yet the team's ahead of the Vikings seem to disagree. Honestly it is tough to see why he fell so far has he has an accurate arm, makes good decisions, is a student of the game and has shown to be durable among many other above average talents. Bridgewater seems to be the safest of the quarterbacks to target in your dynasty drafts and landing with Vikings arguably has more positives than negatives only increasing his value, in my eyes at least, and you have to be dreaming on the combo of Bridgewater and WR Cordarrelle Patterson.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Kosta Koufos will sign a four-year deal with the Kings.
According to initial reports, center Kosta Koufos will sign a four year $33 million dollar contract with the Sacramento Kings. Last year, Koufos averaged 5.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. But his value was more tied to his defense in which he was worth 2.5 win shares in less than 17 minutes per game. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Kenley Jansen was unavailable Saturday due to his recent workload.
Kenley Jansen pitched in three of the last four games for the Dodgers. In his last three appearance, Jansen has given up an earned run in outing including in the Dodgers loss to the Mets on Friday night in a non-save appearance. Jansen has a 1.93 ERA this season and a 1.21 FIP along with a 15.4 strikeouts per nine innings so a day of rest is the best for him long term. That and the manager using his in save opportunities.
