In a showing that seemed to define the term “all systems failure,” almost no individual unit on the team was able to hold its own against a Tennessee team that entered the game at 3-4 on the season.“Very frustrated, very ticked off the way we played,” UK head coach Mark Stoops said. “We have got to play better than that, and we will play better than that, and we will go back to work.”If being outplayed on offense, defense and special teams was not enough to send a Halloween crowd home worried about a possible repeat to the six-game losing streak that ended the 2014 season, a possibly significant injury to star running back Stanley “Boom” Williams likely accomplished the feat.Instant Analysis | Cats blown out by UTWilliams was temporarily sidelined with injury in the second quarter but after receiving attention from the training staff returned to the game for two more plays before crumpling on the ground in pain after landing on his left elbow. After several minutes on the field, he was helped directly into the UK locker room and did not return.For the third consecutive game the Kentucky defense surrendered more than 400 yards, and for the second consecutive week UK’s opponent topped the 40-point plateau. Tennessee scored at least 50 points for the second consecutive season against Kentucky.The Kentucky offense gained just two total yards in the first quarter and was limited to 2 of 13 on third-down conversions. Junior quarterback Patrick Towles completed 16 of 33 passes (48.4 percent) for 184 yards and threw an interception that Tennessee returned to the UK 4-yard line in the third quarter.In the third quarter Kentucky surrendered both a kickoff and punt return for a touchdown. The team was flagged for 93 penalty yards in the game.“Give them credit: they beat our butts in all phases,” Stoops said. “They were much more physical than us. And we’ve got to play with a stronger attitude and mentality than that.”Perhaps most troubling was the return of several all-too-common problems for the Wildcats this season.UK loses Boom Williams to elbow injuryKentucky entered the game surrendering more than 50 rushing yards per game to opposing quarterbacks. Opposing quarterbacks were averaging just more than five yards per carry against Kentucky and had scored eight touchdowns against the Wildcats.One week after Kentucky surrendered 117 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns to Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott, Tennessee junior Joshua Dobbs became the latest quarterback to exploit on of the UK defense’s most glaring weaknesses. He added two rushing touchdowns to go with 51 yards on seven carries while completing 16 of 26 passes for 233 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.Entering Saturday’s game no other SEC team had surrendered more than 36 rushing yards per game or more than four total rushing touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks.Towles entered the game having thrown more interceptions (nine) than touchdowns (eight) and continued to be plagued by inconsistency. His third-quarter interception effectively ended any hope of a Kentucky comeback, and his inability to find open receivers early in the game prevented the offense from establishing any momentum.“It’s clearly not acceptable, and we’re not OK with it,” Stoops said. “But we’re not going to start pointing fingers, and we’re not going to put our head down.”Before the game several Kentucky veterans spoke openly about wanting to head off any fear of a repeat of the 2014 collapse after back-to-back disappointing losses. A blowout defeat to Tennessee will only add to that talk from fans, but winnable games remain on the schedule.“Nobody’s excited, nobody’s happy, nobody’s in good spirits,” UK quarterback Patrick Towles said. “Getting your ass kicked sucks. There’s working your way around it. We’re a bunch of men who got beat by a better football team. We’re going to be a bunch of men, and we’re going to go back to work on Monday and get better.”Barnhart: Stadium ‘over 90’ percent doneKentucky figures to enter its next game as Georgia as a heavy underdog despite the Bulldogs’ loss to Florida Saturday, but how the Wildcats fare in Athens could go a long way to determining if they have the resilience to salvage wins against Vanderbilt, Charlotte or Louisville.“The only way you make this feeling go away is get a victory and go prepare the right way and go in with a tough mentality and go get a win,” Stoops said. “Go get No. 5. That’s the only thing we have to concentrate on. I have no doubt that this team will do that.“We will coach better, they will play better and we will go put it on the line to get No. 5 this week.”Email Jon Hale at [email protected] .

Fantasy Injury Updates: A.J. Green, Sammy Watkins, more WRs among key Week 11 active/inactives

first_imgWeek 11 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerIs A.J. Green playing Week 11?UPDATE: Green is officially OUTGreen hasn’t practiced since injuring his toe injury late in Week 8, and it has been expected all along that he would miss multiple games and not return until December. But Marvin Lewis said early this week he hoped Green could play on Sunday against Baltimore, and the Bengals stopped short of officially listing him as “out”, instead opting for slightly less ominous (but not really) “doubtful”.It would be a mild shock if Green suits up, and even if he does, it’sunlikely he’s anything more than a part-time player/decoy. Because this is a key divisional matchup, it’s more likely Lewis is just trying to gain whatever edge he can by making the Ravens at least think about the possibility Green will play. As it stands, fantasy owners shouldn’t consider Green for their lineups, and instead expect Tyler Boyd and John Ross (assuming he plays) to see the bulk of the targets.WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Sammy Watkins playing Monday night?Watkins (foot) failed to practice this week, making it unlikely he’ll suit up against the Rams. Because this is a Monday night game, fantasy owners shouldn’t have Watkins in their lineups unless they have a backup from that game (Josh Reynolds? Chris Conley?). Even then, it’s a huge risk, as they can likely find a better option from the Sunday games.If Watkins does play and you have a spot open, he’s worth starting given the shootout potential of that game, but, again, you’re better served going with someone else.WEEK 11 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsJohn Ross injury updateUPDATE: Ross is officially ACTIVEAfter getting in limited practice sessions throughout the week, it seems likely that the “questionable” Ross (groin) will play against the Ravens.Ross hasn’t done much during another injury-plagued season, but he did have six targets and a TD last week, and when these teams met in Week 2, then-WR2 Tyler Boyd had 91 yards and a score. Of course, Jimmy Smith didn’t play in that game, A.J. Green did, and it was in Cincinnati, but Ross’s big-play ability still gives him some upside as a FLEX.  ​WEEK 11 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsKeke Coutee injury newsUPDATE: Coutee is officially ACTIVECoutee (hamstring) looks like a true game-time decision against the Redskins after getting in limited practices this week. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported late Saturday that Coutee is expected to play.Because the rookie receiver figures to be less than 100 percent and is yet to play with Demaryius Thomas, it’s tough to know what to expect from him. It’s best to keep him on your bench until we see if he and Thomas can co-exist.MORE WEEK 11 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup Builder Fantasy football owners are getting off easy when it comes to checking for injury updates in Week 11. No key QBs, RBs, or TEs are “questionable”, and most of the big-name WRs who looked like worries early in the week (mainly Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs) will be active. Marvin Jones, Jordy Nelson, and Jamison Crowder have already been officially ruled “out”, and A.J. Green is “doubtful”, which means he’ll almost certainly be inactive. The only wide receivers who will be game-time decisions and giving you start ’em, sit ’em headaches are Sammy Watkins, who plays on Monday night, Keke Coutee, John Ross, and Chris Godwin. How will we ever survive?Of course, in a six-team bye week, every player counts, so we’ll continue updating this post throughout the day with the official news. For more on Joe Flacco, Lamar Jackson, and the Ravens QB situation, check here, and for Week 11 weather updates, go here. Follow us on Twitter (@SN_Fantasy) for more fantasy advice and updates. Is Chris Godwin playing in Week 11?UPDATE: Godwin is officially ACTIVEGodwin (ankle) managed a full practice on Friday and seems almost certain to suit up against the Giants.He’s coming off his first 100-yard performance of the season, though he hasn’t scored since Week 6. In Tampa’s offense, you never know which receiver will have a good game, but Godwin has proven he has WR3 upside most weeks. This is a tough matchup on paper, but Godwin should be out there if you need him.last_img read more
