NFL latests news and updates from RNClub? If Kevin De Bruyne were a car, he’d be a Rolls Royce Phantom. Classy, elegant, and luxurious, but with a powerful 450 bhp engine hidden away underneath its hood. The Belgian star plays the game effortlessly, but to devastating effect. His range of passing is second to none, and, when combined with his sublime first touch and acute awareness of what’s happening around him, it means he can dictate any game. The 28-year-old’s ability to drift past defenders at the drop of a shoulder also evokes memories of a prime Zinedine Zidane.
The deal priority rating here reflects that the Chiefs used the franchise tag on Jones (set to pay him $16.1 million), which draws some parameters on the deal terms for securing his services but also leaves the opportunity for Jones to earn more money next season on an average annual basis than he would this season (Jones’ trajectory is increasing). A second-round pick in 2016, Jones has ascended to be my model’s third-best projected interior defender, a ranking he achieved over the past two seasons, as well. Jones’ efficiency on passing downs (as with his 24.5 sacks over the past two seasons) is easy to see on film. Jones’ help against the run last season in coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s defense drove even more value for the Chiefs, as he ranked sixth in my computer vision defensive run-stopping metric among interior defenders. This means when a back ran into the space near Jones, he helped stop their ability to earn first downs and touchdowns at the sixth-highest rate at his position.
Another player who missed basically all of last season after a broken hand just four games into the year, Steph Curry might be ranked too low here. The Warriors had a rough year without him, but before his injury, Curry was one of the favorites for league MVP. The greatest shooter the league has ever seen, Curry changes the game with the way he spaces the floor as he is a threat from anywhere past half court. Not only can he score with the best of them, but he has incredible passing and finishing ability as well as underrated rebounding and defense for a guard his size. His leadership makes all his teammates better. After a long break from basketball and with next season unlikely to start until December, Curry and his fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson will be ready and energized to make another run at a title. He has a chance to not only prove himself as a top player in the NBA today but move himself higher up the all-time list. Read extra info at How To Watch Boxing Online A Free Guide To All.
It’s almost here — the restart of a PGA Tour season disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
