Millions tickets at a gas station this week. He had big plans for what he would do with the $1.6 billion prize.First
, he would pay teammate Le'Veon Bell to get the running back back to work.“I tried to win it so we could get Le’Veon back,” Smith-Schuster said, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. “It didn’t work.”Bell’s holdout continues, with the running back losing $855,000 every week he stays away.Smith-Schuster, in the second year of his four-year, $4.2 million rookie deal, would have had plenty of money leftover after paying Bell. Smith-Schuster initially said he would take care of his teammates before jokingly rescinding the offer.“I’d still play ball, but have better cars
, a better house, have that lifestyle,” Smith-Schuster said.Smith-Schuster got five numbers correct, returning $10 to him. He said he will use that to play Powerball, with that lottery drawing Wednesday night.“If you don鈥檛 ever play, you never know,” he said. “I had to go in there and shoot my shot.鈥 Say what you want about Tyrod Taylor’s passing ability, his legs could end up being the difference in a Thursday night game that should be a grind for both teams.Taylor has always excelled in escaping the pocket and hurting defenses that don’t account for him at all times. Through two weeks in Cleveland, Taylor’s 103 rushing yards—on just 12 attempts—is good enough second on the team in rushing
, trailing starting running back Carlos Hyde by only two yards. As Rotoworld’s Evan Silva pointed out, Todd Bowles’ man-coverage dominant scheme surrendered the third-most rushing yards to opposing quarterbacks last season. And the unit was gashed last weekend by slightly mobile Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Taylor’s speed and escapability are more conducive to a big game on the ground for the quarterback.This doesn’t mean Taylor can’t hurt the Jets through the air. And the Jets, having seen him frequently in two games each over the last three seasons, are very aware of his threat as a runner. That insecurity could force the Jets into the tough position of having to spy Taylor with a linebacker, which will obviously help open things up in the short and intermediate passing games, at the very least.Taylor’s dual-threat ability should definitely come into play, and it’ll be a key factor in determining whether the Browns finally get a victory.
