Week 13 of the NFL regular season saw the slow destruction of logic and well-laid plans.Some fantasy owners will squeeze into the playoffs praising the gamble they took on Malcolm Mitchell (eight catches for 82 yards). Others were knocked out in crushing defeat, forever cursing the goose egg put up by Marquess Wilson (no catches on one target after injuring his groin in the first quarter). A very unique group will be bounced with several Browns and Titans -- on a rare Week 13 bye -- forced to their benches.Those teams moving on face more chaos in the next few weeks, as NFL teams out of playoff contention try out younger players, decline to push injured starters, and generally cut loose with game plans and make stars out of former practice squadders.A LOOK WAY BACKIn Week 14 last year, Brock Osweiler threw for 308 yards, A.J. McCarron threw for 280 and two touchdowns, Brian Hartline had 107 receiving yards, Ted Ginn caught two touchdowns, and Isaiah Crowell had 145 rushing yards and two scores (he hadnt run for more than 75 yards all season). In short, weird things began happening as the season wound down, so fantasy players advancing to the wild card portion of their playoffs shouldnt be afraid to make some gut calls.A LOOK BACKSome of the late-season craziness began to blossom in Sundays games. For instance, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had been on a terrible run of fantasy disappointment, having thrown for over 300 yards just once in the previous nine games and having multiple passing touchdowns just twice in the entire season. The Eagles -- Daltons Week 13 opponent -- had given up the eighth-fewest points to opposing quarterbacks and 10th-fewest passing yards.Naturally, Dalton went out and threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns. Fantasy players brave enough to start Brandon LaFell in their lineups were rewarded with five receptions on seven targets for 95 yards and a touchdown. And rookie Tyler Boyd -- everyones darling when A.J. Green went down -- contributed four receptions for 66 yards.The Bengals get the Browns in Week 14, and while logic screams, start all Bengals while theyre hot (even possibly including Gio Bernard replacement Rex Burkhead, who caught four passes for 28 yards), expect the Browns to have game-planned all bye break for the Bengals in hopes of getting their first win.TIGHT ENDS GO WILD ON SUNDAYDennis Pitta had two touchdowns. Ladarius Green had 110 yards and a touchdown on six receptions (coming off a 67-yard game in Week 12). Cameron Brate had 86 yards and a touchdown. Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 140 yards. Zach Ertz, Tyler EIfert, and Ryan Griffin all scored. Week 13 was one for the tight ends, and it wouldnt be out of the question to see repeat performances over the next few weeks.Dont be surprised to see a decent amount of tight ends in fantasy flex spots in Week 14.MISCELLANEOUS- Mike Gillislee may have unexpectedly knocked millions of teams out of the playoff hunt, scoring two touchdowns on eight carries after being inactive in Week 12. LeSean McCoy, Buffalos starter, had 191 total yards on 24 touches.- In a stark example of fantasy and real life football not being in perfect harmony, fantasy players had been enjoying the fruits of Colin Kaepernicks ground game, as he averaged 62 rushing yards per game over the last six weeks. In some formats, he was the second-highest scoring quarterback over the last four weeks. And he was facing what should have been an easy opponent in the Bears. But Kaepernick was replaced by Blaine Gabbert in the fourth quarter after completing just one pass for four yards.- Two first-round fantasy picks have wreaked havoc on fantasy teams this season: Todd Gurley and Allen Robinson. They put the cherry on top of what likely became plenty of 4-9 or 5-8 teams with blah performances in Week 13: Gurley had 11 carries for 38 yards and two receptions for 9 yards, while Robinson had three catches on 10 targets for 31 yards.- DeAndre Hopkins, who started the season on a similarly disappointing path as Gurley and Robinson, caught three passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in the snow against the Packers. It probably doesnt make up for his previous six weeks, however, in which he didnt score a touchdown and averaged 54 yards per game.- A quick reminder: Tyrell Williams, playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder, caught two passes for 47 yards and a touchdown. He is superhuman.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com Nike React Element 87 Kopen .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J.

WASHINGTON -- Determined to get out of their recent funk and motivated to measure up to the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Washington Capitals took out their frustrations in a 7-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.The score was indicative of just how lopsided the game was as the Capitals got two goals and three assists from Nicklas Backstrom and two goals and two assists from T.J. Oshie. They scored short-handed, at even strength and on the power play and skated the Penguins out of the building in the rivals second meeting of the season.We played really quick tonight, we got on their D-men, said Backstrom, who tied his career high with five points. We were hungry out there and we won battles and obviously we scored on our chances, too. Thats huge.Washington had lost two in a row and three of four and didnt look at all like a team that lost in overtime Tuesday night at Columbus. Alex Ovechkin ended his four-game point drought with his eighth goal of the season, and Dmitry Orlov and Justin Williams also scored.Ovechkin got a scare when he was taken down by Kris Letang in the second period, leaving the ice briefly before returning a few minutes later. He said his arm went numb but that he was healthy enough to come back and contribute to the blowout.Its nice to see when we play like that, we stick together and we dont give them anything or much, Ovechkin said. Its a good sign.Its a bad sign for the Penguins to put up that kind of effort despite being rested. Pittsburgh allowed a short-handed goal to Oshie early and took nine minor penalties as things fell apart.These games are humbling, Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said. We were embarrassed out there tonight, all of us.Cup-winning goaltender Matt Murray left the game late in the first period after teammate Evgeni Malkin accidentally hit him in the head when he was trying to shove Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner.ddddddddddddMurray said he went through the NHLs concussion protocol and was medically cleared to return, but Sullivan opted to stick with Marc-Andre Fleury out of an abundance of caution.After Murray allowed two goals on 14 shots, Fleury gave up five goals on 25 shots. Phil Kessel scored the Penguins only goal in garbage time as they lamented a wasted game.Its a couple my faults, a couple penalties, Malkin said. Were not ready today. Washington lost last two games. Theyre hungry. They deserved this win.The Capitals didnt let up and poured on the points as the Penguins penalties and mistakes added up. Twelve different players had at least one point, and the beleaguered power play got some much-needed practice and went 2 for 7, scoring at 4-on-3 and 5-on-3.No matter the source of the offensive explosion, this was the kind of game Washington would like to play on a regular basis.We played fast, said goaltender Braden Holtby, who stopped 25 of 27 shots. We didnt stop skating all night. Just watching the last couple games, it seemed like we were just missing a couple strides here and there to keep that team speed up. Tonight guys were committed. I think it was a game where we realized we need to be better and play more to our identity.Game notes F Tom Sestito played for the first time since Nov. 3, replacing Tom Kuhnhackl in the Penguins lineup. Sestito played just 4:49 and was given a 10-minute misconduct at the end of the second period.UP NEXTPenguins: Continue their three-game road trip at the New York Islanders on Friday night.Capitals: Host the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night as they continue a five-game homestand.
