Week 14 Fantasy FLEX rankings

first_imgWeek 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerThis week, there are a handful of players who should draw more consideration than normal at the FLEX position. Notably, Courtland Sutton has moved into starter territory following the season-ending injury to his teammate Sanders. Sutton should do well in a great matchup against the 49ers. Other intriguing plays include D.J. Moore (@ Browns), Chris Godwin (vs. Saints), and Jeff Wilson Jr. (vs. Broncos).Reminder: For more analysis for individual players, check out our standard running back, wide receiver, and tight end rankings. The fantasy football playoffs are here, and plenty of fantasy owners are facing critical start ’em, sit ’em decisions in Round 1 matchups. Our Week 14 fantasy FLEX rankings are as tight as ever — in a good way. There are plenty of solid options this week, with sleepers emerging because of injuries and favorable matchups. It won’t be easy to sort through exactly who to start, especially with guys like A.J. Green, Emmanuel Sanders, Matt Breida, and James Conner out, but we’re here to help.Per usual, you can’t sit any of your studs, and the borderline matchup-proof plays will occupy the top of this list. There will be a handful of second-tier guys with excellent matchups sprinkled in, but generally speaking, you will see a lot of the same names near the top of the list each week. The real intrigue comes in the 50-75 range, as most fantasy teams will be considering a starting a couple of players in that group.

Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury 2 PPV price: How much does it cost to watch the 2020 fight?

first_imgIt’s only the second month of the year, but the heavyweight rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury is already looking like it’ll be the biggest fight of 2020. The two boxing giants (both in stature and reputation) come in undefeated — 42 wins for Wilder, 29 for Fury. Wilder and Fury share a “zero” in the loss column and, just as relevant, a “one” in the third column after their December 2018 fight ended in a disputed draw. Money, legacy and a heavyweight world title are on the line on Saturday night when the fighters star in the sequel. In the 14 months between the last fight and now, Wilder and Fury have been complimentary to each other in public comments. To the surprise of no one, the compliments ceased and trash talk took its place.

Is Lionel Messi going to leave Barcelona? Transfer exit saga, explained

first_imgLionel Messi has spent his entire professional career at Barcelona, having joined the club as a 14-year-old, and the Argentine’s glorious exploits have seen him become an honorary Catalan.He has helped the club to 10 league titles and four Champions Leagues, scooping a record six Ballons d’Or for his personal contributions along the way. His love for Barcelona is clear in his near lifelong commitment to the Spanish giants, but speculation persists nevertheless that La Pulga will ultimately join another club before he hangs up his boots for good.So is Messi about to bid farewell to Camp Nou? Goal breaks down the current situation.Is Lionel Messi going to leave Barcelona?Messi does not want to leave Barcelona, but the Argentina international has spoken in the past of potentially joining another club. Barca president Josep Bartomeu insists that the club will “enjoy [Messi] for much longer” after stressing that their star player is not interested in a departure.”I am not going to give details but Messi has said many times that he will end his football life in Barcelona,” Bartomeu said.He added: “Messi wants to continue and wants to end [his career] here. He has many years left and we are going to enjoy him for much longer.”Why is there speculation about a Lionel Messi Barcelona exit?Transfer speculation is very much part of football and Messi’s status as arguably the best player in the world has long marked him out at a desirable recruit for a host of top clubs.As such, he is periodically linked with other clubs, though in most cases the speculation is simply not credible.The rumour mill was cranked into action on this occasion after Cadena SER reported that the 33-year-old was ready to bring down the curtain on his illustrious Barcelona career, with his contract expiring in 2021.With the clocking ticking, a contributing factor in the speculation was the suggestion that contract talks between the club and Messi had been put on hold. https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/GOAL/3d/28/lionel-messi-barcelona-160602020_1bq3zyqj08e9n1nlp1s6j5fz1j.jpg?t=-1087509574&w=500&quality=80It’s understood that these issues – the reticence about signing a new deal and a possible exit – are related to Messi’s reported dissatisfaction with off-field, internal machinations at the club.The first major example of this bubbling discontent came in February, when the captain publicly hit back at Barca technical secretary Eric Abidal over his criticisms of the players.”Those in charge of sporting direction should also face up to their responsibilities and above all take charge of their own decisions,” shot the Argentine in a caustic Instagram post.Then, when confirming the players’ 70 per cent pay cut during the coronavirus lockdown, Messi directed a barb at figures within the club “who tried to put us under pressure to do something we always knew we would do.”Having kept his own counsel on internal political issues within the club over the years, Messi’s recent outspokenness indicates that he is now willing to exert his influence.Indeed, it has been suggested that the contract impasse could potentially precipitate a premature end to Bartomeu’s presidency, with club elections set to take place in June 2021.Which clubs could Lionel Messi sign for?Given his status as one of the best footballers who has ever lived, Messi would have no shortage of options if he ever did decide to leave Barcelona.He has notably been touted for a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City in the past and the Premier League club are certainly among the few who would be well placed to afford him.Those links have been made again in light of recent rumblings, but Guardiola played down the suggestion that Messi could soon grace the Etihad Stadium, expressing a wish for the Argentine to remain at Barca.A return to Argentina is a very credible possibility, with his compatriot and friend Javier Mascherano emphasising that “anything could happen”.Mascherano himself returned home in 2020 to join Estudiantes and club chairman Juan Sebastian Veron joked that the No. 10 would be reserved for Messi if he wanted to sign for them.“If you want to come here [Estudiantes], you have the ’10’ ensured,” said Veron. “Beyond that, I don’t really imagine him outside Barcelona, but these are things that we say today and tomorrow we see him out there going to another club. “The reality is that he is the only one who has the decision and desire; no one else knows.”As well as Estudiantes, Messi’s boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys would surely be in the equation should he consider a return to his native land, while the likes of Boca Juniors and River Plate could possibly appeal.Former Barcelona star Rivaldo has spoken of the financial incentive for all involved if Messi were to link up with his eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus, though such an eventuality seems highly unlikely.“With all this speculation, I believe that some agents are already dreaming about a Messi-Ronaldo double at Juventus and how big it will be around the globe,” Rivaldo said.“If that happened there would be a world ‘boom’, and I believe Juventus would quickly recover any investment on the Argentinian thanks to the boost they would get from visibility and marketing.“It would be historical to see both playing together and I’m sure many Juve sponsors would love to help financially, so, it’s also a possibility for Messi.”While a dream team with Ronaldo at Juventus may be beyond contemplation for the Bianconeri, one Italian club that have been heavily linked are Inter.Having previously gone “all out” to lure the Argentine to San Siro in 2008, recent speculation prompted the head of Pirelli – Inter’s chief shirt sponsor – to hint that his company could help finance a move. The idea of Pirelli making a contribution has precedent in Fiat’s assistance to Juve when Ronaldo joined from Real Madrid in 2018. Old Trafford is another rumoured destination, with reports in Argentina suggesting Manchester United were readying a €120 million (£108m/$136m) part-exchange offer.In truth, any club in the world would be keen to sign Messi, such is his status, but in the event that he does leave, whoever does sign him will need deep pockets.

Birmingham to be named 2022 Commonwealth Games hosts

first_img0Shares0000Flagbearers of the Commonwealth Games Federation display the flag during the opening ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games at Celtic Park in Glasgow on July 23, 2014 © AFP/File / ANDREJ ISAKOVICLondon, United Kingdom, Dec 20 – Birmingham is set to be announced as the host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games after Durban was stripped of the event in March, according to reports Wednesday.The Games were originally awarded to Durban in 2015 but the South African city had the event taken away for financial reasons. That led to a shortened bidding contest that came down to a race for British government funding between Birmingham and Liverpool, which was won by the central English city in September.Despite being the only city to submit a bid by the Commonwealth Games Federation’s (CGF) deadline of the end of September, Birmingham has had to wait nearly three months to have its victory confirmed.The city’s initial proposal was judged to be not “fully compliant” with a further delay as the CGF sought further guarantees over funding from Birmingham and the British government.Confirmation of Birmingham as 2022 hosts is due to be made at a press conference in the city on Thursday morning.The Games are open to countries that are members of the Commonwealth, a collection of nations and territories that were mainly once part of the British empire.The 2018 Games will be staged on Australia’s Gold Coast.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

KCB beat Talanta to earn return to KPL

first_imgThe three points will ensure KCB’s final match against Nairobi Stima next weekend will be a mere formality.The bankers moved to 75 points in the National Super League (NSL) standings, eight ahead of third placed Nairobi Stima who will be playing Kenya Police in the other NSL match later Sunday.“I am really pleased to have scored today in such an important match to help the team get back to the league. It was a tough match but we knew when we get one goal, things will be easy. I can’t really explain how it feels because we have fought for this so much,” goal scorer Gicheru said.KCB FC defender Dennis Gicheru celebrates after scoring for KCB during their National Super League tie against FC Talanta at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on October 7, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluAmazingly, Gicheru scored one of the four goals for Wazito FC last year when they beat Kenya Police 4-1 in Narok to earn promotion to the KPL which now means he has scored in both crucial matches and earned promotion with two different teams in consecutive years.Head coach Elvis Ayany, a former player of the bankers was in cloud nine after sealing the slot.“It has been a tough season and every game has been like a final. Over the last three years we have come very close but lost it in the final four games. This time round, we were very serious in every game and we did not underrate anyone,” Ayany pointed out.After being frustrated by a high defending Talanta, coached by former KCB boss Abdallah Juma, the bankers upped the tempo in the second half.On the hour mark, they came inches close when Samuel Mwangi’s venomous strike from distance was finger tipped over the bar by Talanta keeper Joel Bataro.KCB FC midfielder Samuel Mwangi strides forward during his side’s National Super League tie against FC Talanta at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on October 7, 2018.

Looking for a Ride to SXSW? Get on the Startup Bus

first_imgRelated Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#news#web Why hop a plane to SXSW this year when you can get on a bus? Okay, let’s rephrase that – why hop a plane when you can get on a bus with 20-something other folks, drive across country, and try to formulate a viable startup idea along the way?At least that’s the idea behind the Startup Bus, the brainchild of Elias Bizannes, which is now in its second, vastly expanded incarnation.The idea, which started out as “a half serious but fully beer-infused joke about driving an RV to SXSW 2010 with a bunch of friends and hacking on the way” has turned into a full-on country-wide competition this year. Bizannes says that the idea is not only to potentially create potential businesses, but to create collaboration and community among entrepreneurs.“Successful startups come from good people. And good people build rapport by collaborating together,” said Bizannes. “While I don’t doubt some real businesses will come out of this, the real value is the fact these strangers work together and get to know each other”This year’s competition is ramping up to include up to six buses, with six teams per bus and more than 150 people total. Right now, Bizannes says buses are definitely leaving from San Francisco, New York and Cleveland, with Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles all penciled in as possible departure points. The basic idea then is that all of these people hop on a bus, self-organize into teams, and build a functional website or prototype to present to a panel of judges when they arrive in Austin two days later. Waiting at the finish line will be Josh Baer, from Austin’s startup incubator Capital Factory, looking for potential opportunities.“Last year, people actually launched with products that would be considered real web services had you not known,” said Bizannes. “I think everyone was shocked how much coding you can do on a bus in 48 hours.”Bizannes says that Xero has signed on as a sponsor, so the plan is full steam ahead, but some details, such as the exact departure cities, still need to be ironed out. So how do you get in on the road-tripping, brainstorming, startup-forming fun? Sign in on the Startup Bus website using your Facebook login and hope someone in your community has an invite. If you’re not connected to the right community, says Bizannes, then helping to spread the word about it through Twitter could help get an invite. Getting on the bus, as it were, isn’t only about the competition – it’s about the community that can form afterward.“I want to turn this into a community, where the initiation rite is being on the bus and you tap into this rich alumni community of founders, startup enthusiasts, and talent,” said Bizannes. “So, we have plans of creating a private community website after that would have things like a job board.”center_img mike melanson Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Deaf Sports Day A Success

first_imgOn Wednesday, 19 June, the third annual Active Deaf Kids Sports Day took place at Belconnen Stadium, Canberra, with the event attended by Federal Minister for Sport, Kate Lundy.The day looked to raise awareness of Deaf Sports Australia and encourage children with hearing impairments to participate in sport. The day allowed the children that attended to participate in various sports clinics, including one run by Touch Football ACT.Senator Lundy gave a short speech over morning tea which recognised Touch Football ACT, along with several other sporting organisations, for their work with Deaf Sports Australia.She also implored the kids present to get involved in sport, pointing towards both the health and friendship advantages that participating brings.“[There are] wonderful benefits of playing sport. Being fit and active is part of it, but also sport is something that unites us all,” she said.The event was also the forum for an announcement that $60,000 extra funding would be put forward by the Federal Government to go towards deaf sports stars attending the Deaf Olympics.Related LinksDeaf Sports Daylast_img read more
