Josh Donaldson Traded To The Blue Jays

In a trade that comes as shocking news, the Oakland Athletics have agreed to trade their superstar third baseman Josh Donaldson to the Toronto Blue Jays. In return the A's will receive Brett Lawrie, Sean Nolin, Kendall Graveman and Franklin Barreto.

The A's offense really struggled after they traded Yoenis Cespedes to the Red Sox back in July. Donaldson was really the lone bright spot for Oakland offensively, so it comes as a surprise they'd trade him. Donaldson hit .255 last season with 29 home runs and 98 RBI. Brett Lawrie is just 24 and there has been a lot of hype surrounding him but he has failed to live up to it, largely due to a long list of injuries.

Toronto now has a nice core of players like Jose Reyes, Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, and Russell Martin.

Vikings Jerick McKinnon Out vs Panthers

The Minnesota Vikings will be without RB Jerick McKinnon on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. He injured himself lifting weights! It is tough to swallow if you have to start him, as Thanksgiving has come and gone and guys like Joique Bell, Theo Riddick and Darren Sproles are no longer options to replace McKinnon. Jerick is owned by just 63% of Yahoo Fantasy Football owners, but with the fantasy football playoffs just a week away, this could be a major dilemma for some owners. Matt Asiata, Joe Banyard and Ben Tate are the Vikings options at RB. If you are desperate, and need to add a RB, target Daniel Herron of the Indianapolis Colts!

Ray Rice Reinstated

Preparing for the Fantasy Football Playoffs

Ray Rice Is Officially a Free Agent

Ray Rice has won his appeal of an indefinite suspension from the NFL and is free to sign with any team!  Off the top of my head, teams in the playoff hunt that need an RB are the Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins.  

Obviously, it is impossible to know if any NFL team is willing to give him a chance to play this season, but it will be the biggest story all weekend long!  He will have a limited role should he join any team, and will most likely not be a fantasy football option until the end of the fantasy playoffs, if at all.
