However, he made $12mil last season, so he’ll likely be looking at that number as his base for 2018. Even with the low average, I’d rather have Frazier in the lineup than Hanley Ramirez, whose own salary makes Frazier look like a bargain.

You thought the signing of Arian Foster a few weeks ago was going to be a throwaway transaction that meant little to the team moving forward? You thought wrong. Sophomore tailback Jay Ajayi is not only unproven but already banged up (left knee), so there Foster sits, taking the reps with the first team.

HANK’S HONEYS: Another too big spread in a divisional game, with public piling on the defending NFC champs figuring that the Super Bowl hangover is over. It may be, especially since Falcs are coming down the stretch squarely in the playoff race.
