The biggest surprise from the Rams’ Week 1 blowout of the Colts was the way they flowed on offense.

We knew they were good on defense, with or without Aaron Donald, but not even the biggest optimists could’ve foreseen the passing game doing as well as it did. Yes, the Colts were shorthanded. But the Rams should only grow under Sean McVay. And once teams start respecting Jared Goff, Todd Gurley should get more holes to run through.

The biggest surprise for the 49ers in Week 1 was an overall inability to generate much on offense. While coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense is complicated and it takes time to coalesce (see Atlanta in 2015), this was still a disappointing performance. The Niners finished with just 217 yards and 13 first downs while averaging 4 yards per play. Coach Kyle Shanahan cited penalties and missed opportunities as the primary reasons for those struggles but acknowledged that improvement is the top priority.

Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers: The Panthers plan to use McCaffrey, the eighth overall pick in the draft, and second-round pick Curtis Samuel all over the field. While Samuel has been slowed by a hamstring injury, McCaffrey had an excellent summer. Many fantasy owners are curious to see how the Panthers will use him.

Haason Reddick, OLB, Cardinals: Arizona’s pass rush this year could be downright scary with the addition of Reddick to a defensive front that already includes Markus Golden and Chandler Jones. Reddick is an athletic freak and the 6-1, 235-pound pass rusher from Temple has lived up to the hype this summer after the Cardinals drafted him 13th overall.

Deshaun Watson, QB, Texans: Like Mitchell Trubisky in Chicago, Watson will be closely watched playing behind a veteran quarterback not viewed as the long-term solution. Tom Cheap NFL Jerseys From China Savage will be the Week 1 starter for the Texans, but if the offense sputters like it did last year, coach Cheap Mitchell And Ness Jerseys Bill O’Brien might turn the keys over to the rookie from Clemson to see what he can do.

Gordon Hayward signing could help Celtics take next step

The Celtics have been toiling to supplant the Cavaliers as Eastern Conference champions for a couple years now. Tuesday’s news may have just helped them reach their goal.

Gordon Hayward officially picked the Celtics over the Heat and Jazz on Tuesday, ending one of the most anticipated free agent pursuits since LeBron James’ infamous decision, which resulted in him taking his talents to South Beach.

While Hayward was far less annoying about his tough decision, he too left the team with which he had spent his entire career. After making his first All-Star team this past season, and Cheap NBA Jerseys From China playing at that level a couple seasons before, Hayward became one of the more sought-after free agents of the last couple seasons.

The 6-8 forward averaged 21.9 points per game last season while shooting just under 40 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. Boston desperately needed to find another shooter, one who could stretch the floor and create more room for Isaiah Thomas.

Not only does Hayward provide that missing piece, he also gives Boston fans another star for whom to cheer. The Celtics have recently done a great job acquiring high draft picks, but needed another proven veteran to really contend with the Cavaliers in the East.

With the free-agent signing of former Redskins and Eagles Cheap NFL Jerseys From China deep threat DeSean Jackson, the Bucs finally have someone dangerous to stretch the field opposite Mike Evans. It’s a perfect landing spot for Jackson, who will see plenty of action come his way as Winston shows off his big arm more in 2017. Jackson, 30, still has speed to burn against No. 2 corners outside.
