Every year in the NFL there are players who post big-time numbers one season http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/byron-murphy-jersey , which causes fans to create unrealistic expectations heading into the next season for these players. These expectations are likely exaggerated more than ever now because of the extreme focus on fantasy football and preseason fantasy football player rankings. Just like teams that perform well one season and garner tons of offseason hype just to fall flat on their face and draw the ire of their fanbases (looking at you Cardinals and Panthers), players are not immune from failing to live up to preseason expectations.The players compiled on this list all had a breakout career, or just plain exceptional seasons in 2015. Unfortunately for each of these players, the 2016 season has been less fortunate. Whether it be injuries, coaching changes, or just poor performance, these players have all seen a decrease in production from their 2015 seasons. While there is still half a season for these players to turn it around Andy Isabella Jersey , all of them are currently on pace to fall victim to their expectations entering 2016.However, don't count out any of these players to turn their season around or at least bounce back in 2017, as they clearly have the talent to dominate in the NFL. (Note: Players who have suffered major injuries in 2o16 were not included as candidates for this list).Without further ado, here is the list of 15 NFL Stars who look a lot worse so far this season than they did in 2015. HOUSTON — Heralded outfield prospect Kyle Tucker made his big-league debut Saturday for the Astros, a move that not only has implications for Tucker but two other outfielders.
With Tucker, who finished 1-for-4 with a bases-loaded walk and three strikeouts in the Astros’ 12-6 win, in the fold Alexander Mattison Jersey , outfielder Tony Kemp will see a reduction in his playing time despite providing a spark for the Astros (60-31) since his mid-May recall. Kemp has a slash line of .295/.385/.410 over 40 games.
Outfielder Jake Marisnick, meanwhile, was optioned to Triple-A Fresno for a second time on the same night he delivered another sparkling play in center field.
Marisnick was batting .190 with 69 strikeouts in 163 plate appearances.
“It was hard for Jake, and it should be,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “He’s had a roller-coaster season going up and down. The first go-round he was really needing to go correct some things. The second go-around he was doing a lot better and things were out of his control a little bit as to him going down to Triple-A. There are still some offensive adjustments we want him to make.
“(Kemp) came up and won the right to stay in the big leagues. When a transaction happens, we talk a lot about the guy we sent down but the guy that we kept earned the right to be here. I’m very proud of what Tony has contributed to this team, and it hasn’t always been fair to him the last couple of years.”
Keuchel is 3-4 with a 3.81 ERA over eight career starts against the White Sox including a 10-1 win on April 21 when he worked six innings and allowed one run on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Right-hander Lucas Giolito (5-7, 6.93 ERA) gets the starting nod for Chicago (30-59). He is 2-3 with a 7.50 ERA in his last eight starts, allowing five runs or more four times.
Giolito will make his third career start against the Astros, against whom he is 0-2 with an 11.42 ERA. He was charged with nine runs on five hits and seven walks opposite Keuchel on April 21 and suffered the loss in his previous appearance at Minute Maid Park on Sept. 19, 2017, when he allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk with three strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings of a 3-1 loss.
White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson was back in the starting lineup Saturday and finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts after sitting out the previous game to manage the soreness in his left forearm. Anderson was hit by a pitch in Thursday’s series opener.
Anderson has become a fixture in the eight-hole when Chicago faces a right-handed starter Daniel Jones Jersey , a move designed to help amplify the depth of the White Sox lineup and provide additional opportunities atop the batting order for fellow infielders Yoan Moncada and Yolmer Sanchez.
“If you look at the lineup it just lengthens out (and) allows us to put him and keep him there,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said of Anderson. “As long as he stays comfortable there he helps us there quite a bit. Picks up the back end of the lineup and I think we’ve gotten some benefits out of it.”
