RIO DE JANEIRO -- Madison Keys closed in on an Olympic tennis medal by reaching the womens singles semifinals Thursday, then scampered from Court 1 to Court 4. David Sharpe Womens Jersey .She wanted to make sure she would get there in time to sit in the stands and cheer for U.S. teammate Steve Johnson during the closing minutes of a victory that put him in the mens quarterfinals.Shortly after that, Johnson and Keys sought each other out in the interview area to share smiles and an enthusiastic high-five. A Rio de Janeiro Games tournament that began inauspiciously for the Americans was suddenly looking a lot better Thursday.The No. 7-seeded Keys power-based game overwhelmed Daria Katsatkina of Russia 6-3, 6-1 in a mere 53 minutes, thanks in large part to a 30-4 edge in winners. Earn one more victory -- either in the semifinals against No. 2 Angelique Kerber of Germany, or in the bronze match -- and Keys will head back home with a medal.The first thing I did was say, `Yes, I won! Keys said. And then I was like, `Whats Stevies score?Johnson, a four-time NCAA team champion and two-time individual winner for Southern California, had a similarly easy time of things against Evgeny Donskoy of Russia, winning 6-1, 6-1.Johnson said he noticed Keys supporting him at courtside over the final couple of games.When were at the Grand Slams, its tough for us to go out and watch just because its so busy and whatnot. Im always rooting for the Americans to do well, regardless of who they are, he said. To see her doing well here, hopefully shes going to get one more and get to the final and do some damage.Next for Johnson comes a far more daunting task: He will play No. 2 Andy Murray, the defending Olympic gold medalist and a three-time Grand Slam champion with a semifinal berth on the line.Theyve met only once before, with Murray winning in straight sets last year.Any given day, you can beat anybody, said Johnson, who is seeded 12th. So Ill go out there with a different gameplan and the right mindset.Johnson also still is in the running for a medal in mens doubles.He and partner Jack Sock lost 6-3, 7-5 to Florin Mergea and Horia Tecau of Romania in the semifinals, but can head home with a bronze if they beat Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil of Canada.Sock is part of one of two mixed doubles teams that could earn a medal for the United States, too.He and Bethanie Mattek-Sands reached the quarterfinals of that 16-team event, and so did Venus Williams and Rajeev Ram, by winning in the first round Thursday. Mattek-Sands and Sock defeated Johanna Konta and Jamie Murray of Britain 6-4, 6-3, while Williams and Ram got past the Dutch pair of Kiki Bertens and Jean-Julien Rojer 6-7 (4), 7-6 (3), 10-8.Williams lost in the first round of singles and womens doubles in Rio. Her sister Serena, the defending champion in both of those events, exited in the third round of singles.What can you do, except come back and play again?

Prosise -- expected to get more playing time against the PatsRB Kapri Bibbs - given every opportunity to become the lead back for the BroncosRB Matt Jones -- expected to be a healthy scratch SundayTE Zach Ertz -- should get more targets in the red zoneWR J.J. Nelson -- stock rising in ArizonaFour teams have bye weeks: the Bills, Lions, Colts and Raiders.LocksQB Carson Palmer vs. San FranciscoThe 49ers defense has allowed 18 touchdowns to gunslingers this season. Palmer has a juicy matchup this week, and coming off a bye, should be ready to crush it in Week 10. San Francisco has given up the ninth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.(Other: Philip Rivers vs. Miami)WR Jordy Nelson @ TennesseeNelson has seven touchdowns this season and leads the NFL in end zone targets. He has a solid matchup against the Titans in Week 10. This game has the potential to be a barn burner; lets hope its just that.(Others: Jarvis Landry @ San Diego, Larry Fitzgerald vs. San Francisco, Stefon Diggs @ Washington, Jordan Matthews vs. Atlanta)RB Devonta Freeman @ PhiladelphiaWith Coleman is out, Freeman is the BIG bird in for the Falcons. The Eagles have allowed just three rushing touchdowns to running backs this season, but Freeman is also utilized in the passing attack and has an opportunity to produce good numbers through the air.(Others: Spencer Ware @ Carolina, Jordan Howard @ Tampa Bay)TE Travis Kelce @ CarolinaKelce is a great start against a Panthers defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to tight ends. Kelce needs to make up for last Sunday, so hopefully he will do just that against a Panthers defense that has allowed six TDs to tight ends this season.(Others: Antonio Gates vs. Miami, Tyler Eifert @ New York Giants, Zach Ertz vs. Atlanta)FlopsQB Kirk Cousins @ MinnesotaCousins has a difficult matchup against the Vikings and their fourth-ranked secondary on Sunday. DeSean Jackson is expected to be inactive, leaving Cousins with one fewer target in Week 10. Minnesota has given up the fourth-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.WR Doug Baldwin @ New EnglandLogan Ryan is expected to shadow Balldwin on Sunday, which tells me there are better options at the wide receiver position in Week 10. David Sharpe Jersey. Baldwin should be on your bench.RB Jeremy Hill @ New York GiantsThe Giants have allowed only a little more than three yards per carry to opposing backs this season. Hill is sharing the Bengals backfield with Giovani Bernard, and the Giants have given up the 15th-fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.TE Coby Fleener vs. DenverFleener has not delivered the past few weeks. This week he faces Denver, which has allowed only two touchdowns this season to tight ends. The Broncos secondary has allowed only 30 or more yards to seven of nine tight ends this season. Fleener is not a top-12 tight end this week.SleepersQB Alex Smith @ CarolinaSmith will get the start in Week 10 after missing last week due to a concussion. This week, Smith takes on the Panthers that have allowed quarterbacks to average more than 19 fantasy points per game. Carolinas secondary is allowing over 280 passing yards a game, and is ranked 29th in the league. It has given up the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season.(Honorable mentions: Dak Prescott @ Pittsburgh, Marcus Mariota vs. Green Bay, Carson Wentz vs. Atlanta)WR Kenny Britt @ New York JetsBritt continues to be the Rams go to guy in the passing game, scoring his fourth touchdown of the season in Week 9. He is a solid flex play this week against a Jets defense that has allowed 16 touchdowns to receivers this season. New York has given up the seventh-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2016.(Honorable mentions: Michael Thomas vs. Denver, Cole Beasley @ Pittsburgh, Rishard Matthews vs. Green Bay, Tyreek Hill @ Carolina, J.J. Nelson vs. San Francisco)RB Darren Sproles vs. AtlantaSproles took the backfield lead last week and will continue to do so. Sproles is a solid RB2 against the Falcons, who have issues against running backs in the passing game. Sproles could have a big game as a receiver against the Falcons 31st-ranked run defense. Atlanta has given up the sixth-most fantasy points to running backs this season.(Honorable mention: C.J. Prosise @ New England, Robert Kelley vs. Minnesota, Peyton Barber vs. Chicago, Kapri Bibbs @ New Orleans)TE Lance Kendricks @ New York JetsKendricks has been a huge part of the Rams offense this season. He has back-to-back games of seven catches, and QB Case Keenum has targeted him often. The Jets defense has allowed more than 270 passing yards per game, and has given up the 13th most fantasy points to tight ends this season.(Honorable mention: Kyle Rudolph @ Washington) Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
