DraftKings Thanksgiving Showdown Picks: Lineup advice for Lions vs. Bears, Cowboys vs. Bills, Saints vs. Falcons Thursday NFL DFS

first_imgNew Orleans has a sneaky good defense that should keep Atlanta out of the end zone at times, and Koo has been locked in since his signing and will get to kick from the comforts of indoors, too.FLEX: WR Tre’Quan Smith, Saints ($3,000)Smith has played more than Ted Ginn Jr. in two straight weeks and benefited with a touchdown catch in Week 12, so we’ll bet on that usage continuing and being a part of a big offensive day for the Saints. MORE THURSDAY FANTASY: FanDuel lineup | DraftKings lineup | Start/SitDraftKings Showdown Picks: Lions vs. BearsCaptain (1.5x price, 1.5x points): RB Bo Scarbrough, Lions ($11,100)The Bears’ defense will scare people off of Scarbrough here, but Chicago has been just league average against the run and we’re looking at 15-plus touches for a bruising back in Scarbrough. The hope is that Bo is lower owned than a player with his floor and ceiling should be. Players like David Montgomery and Kenny Golladay might be more popular captain picks at slightly higher pricing.FLEX: QB Mitchell Trubisky, Bears ($9,800)This is a battle of two quarterbacks who accumulate ugly fantasy points, but in a game that’s so hard to predict which team will look more beautiful of the two uglies, we’re gonna use both. Trubisky runs less and throws more than Jeff Driskel, but he still brings both elements enough to feel like he can put up points even if there’s a turnover or two involved.FLEX: QB Jeff Driskel, Lions ($9,000)Driskel’s 63 rushing yards in Week 12 have me swooning over the difference in his perceived value versus real fantasy value. There’s a great floor here, and if he limits turnovers and lucks into a few touchdowns, there’s a pretty darn good ceiling, too. Just monitor his injury status, as he’s questionable early in the week.WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPFLEX: WR Kenny Golladay, Lions ($8,800)There’s no Lions receiver with huge upside with Driskel, but he hasn’t stopped trying Golladay deep a couple times a game. Golladay is also the most likely to accumulate via short volume, too, if Detroit decides to go that route.FLEX: RB David Montgomery, Bears ($8,600)The Lions allow more DK points to running backs than any other team and make a good case for Montgomery as the captain. The rookie wall may be close, though, as Montgomery hasn’t looked great in recent weeks with Matt Nagy’s play calling not helping. We still gotta go after this great matchup, though.FLEX: TE Logan Thomas, Lions ($1,600)Thomas has as good of a touchdown chance as anyone priced this low. The alternative lineup construction here is to pay down from either Golladay or Montgomery to use one of the D/STs in this spot instead of Thomas (if you feel especially strongly that this will be a blowout in one direction, that could be the way to go).Note: If Driskel’s hamstring injury gets worse and the Lions are forced to turn to David Blough at QB, I’d remove Driskel and Golladay and insert Allen Robinson and Marvin Jones.WEEK 13 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerDraftKings Showdown Lineup: Cowboys vs. BillsCaptain (1.5x price, 1.5x points): WR Michael Gallup, Cowboys ($12,000)With Tre’Davious White doing his thing on Amari Cooper (who’s also been dealing with injuries), Gallup might be Dallas’ best option through the air. He’s only the seventh-highest priced possibility as captain, which feels like value for a player who had nine catches for 148 yards two weeks ago.FLEX: RB Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys ($11,200)Whether you think he’s really that good or not, the Cowboys just continue to give Zeke the ball on the ground, through the air, and in the red zone. There’s not a lot of desirable plays in the intermediate pricing, so there’s no harm in just using such a high-volume piece of this game.FLEX: QB Dak Prescott, Cowboys ($10,800)Using both Dak and Zeke hopefully gets us involvement in every Dallas touchdown in a game that the home team is favored to win. And stacking Prescott with Gallup gives potential for a huge day if we hit right on our captain pick.FLEX: QB Josh Allen, Bills ($10,600)Allen has cut down on turnovers immensely, still has the high floor thanks to his rushing, and also loves to sling it all around the field. The one luxury we couldn’t have in this lineup was Devin Singletary, so we’ll be on Allen and a couple of his secondary passing options keeping this one close (or at least piling up numbers in garbage time).MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderFLEX: TE Dawson Knox, Bills ($4,400)The Cowboys are a bottom-10 defense at defending tight ends, and Knox finally has made this starter’s job his own again. It might mean something like five targets, one or two athletic plays down the field and a chance to grab a touchdown. That’ll play at this price.FLEX: WR Isaiah McKenzie, Bills ($1,000)Cowboys’ third WR Randall Cobb is priced at $7,600, yet McKenzie, who has made himself into Buffalo’s third wideout, is priced at $1K. He’s still used in the gadget situations that could set him up for big plays, but he’s also up to about three-quarters of snaps in recent weeks and six targets in Week 12, so there’s an easy route to return both small and huge value here.WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endDraftKings Showdown Advice: Saints vs. FalconsCaptain (1.5x price, 1.5x points): WR Michael Thomas, Saints ($17,400)The last time Thomas wasn’t targeted double-digit times was Week 4. He’s the best player in this game and the most likely to score the most points. Even a bad game by his standards will put him near the top of the leaderboard. It’s a lot to play him as captain and basically requires us to bail on any belief in Atlanta, but it’s probably worth it.FLEX: QB Drew Brees, Saints ($10,800)There’s noo reason to play Thomas as captain and not couple him with Brees. Atlanta’s secondary is one of the worst in football, too, so this doesn’t seem like it can go wrong.FLEX: RB Alvin Kamara, Saints ($10,200)Kamara should thrive alongside our other Saints as another weapon in the passing game who can also be explosive on the ground. The Falcons don’t really have anything to play for, so we’re all-in on New Orleans here.FLEX: WR Russell Gage, Falcons ($4,600)Gage saw 10 targets a week ago and should continue to see strong possession work with Austin Hooper (knee) banged up. Thanks to DK’s PPR scoring, Gage has a very solid floor in a game Atlanta will probably trail in.FLEX: K Younghoe Koo, Falcons ($3,800) Thanksgiving football provides us with three DraftKings Showdown NFL DFS contests to partake in, one for each of Lions vs. Bears, Cowboys vs. Bills and Saints vs. Falcons. That means that even if the first game doesn’t go how you want, you’ll have an opportunity to cash in some GPP tournaments for the second and third game. After all, you can never have enough football and daily fantasy football to go with your turkey and pie.We take three slightly different approaches with our captains. Our early-game captain is our only RB, Bo Scarbrough. In game two, we try Dallas’ No. 2 WR, Michael Gallup. And in the nightcap, we go with the best player available, Michael Thomas. You could also captain quarterbacks or deeper value plays, if that’s what makes sense in your lineup construction, or even defenses in an early game that could get ugly.last_img read more

National Signing Day: 11 weird stories from college football’s top recruits

first_imgMORE: Best high school players SN has ever seenWhether it’s parents openly disagreeing — or hindering — their kid’s college decision or players literally fabricating their entire recruitment, National Signing Day is not without its weird stories.Here are some of the more wilder signing day moments from the last 10-plus years:Terrelle Pryor (Ohio State, 2008)Following a highly anticipated recruitment, the five-star quarterback held a news conference on National Signing Day to announce his decision: That he didn’t have one. Pryor would wait until March 19 to announce his commitment to Ohio State over Michigan, Penn State and Oregon.Kevin Hart (Cal/Missouri Western State, 2008)Hart held a news conference at Nevada Fernley High School to announce that he would play his college football at Cal. One problem: Hart made up his entire recruitment, a bizarre story that made national news. Hart later signed with Division II Missouri Western State in 2012.MORE: Alabama’s 2020 class faces more pressureCyrus Kouandjio (Alabama/Auburn, 2011)Kouandjio, a five-star offensive lineman with offers from several big-time schools, including Auburn and Alabama, announced his decision to attend Auburn on ESPNU. However, he never signed the letter of intent; reports suggested he was second-guessing his decision later in the day. He eventually reversed field, joining his older brother Arie at Alabama a few days later.Landon Collins (Alabama/LSU, 2012)Collins announced his decision at the Under Armour All-America Bowl with his family in tow. The Geismar, La., native picked Alabama over LSU, saying “Roll Tide Roll” while his mother displayed her displeasure at the decision. “I feel like LSU is a better place for him to be. LSU Tigers, No. 1. Go Tigers,” she said during the announcement.Alex Collins (Arkansas, 2013)Collins, a four-star running back from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., committed to Arkansas over in-state schools. His mother refused to sign the letter of intent and took it with her out of the high school. Arkansas coach Bret Bielema sent another letter, however, which Collins’ father signed the following day.Jacob Copeland (Alabama/Florida/Tennessee, 2018)Jacob Copeland committed to Florida on ESPNU, and his mother — who wore a Tennessee hat and Alabama sweatshirt — exited stage left quickly. That scene unfolded quickly and was about as bizarre as you would expect. Copeland’s mother later returned, but it was just the latest weird story to come out of National Signing Day.Bru McCoy (USC/Texas, 2019)Bru McCoy, a five-star athlete from Santa Ana, Calif., became USC’s highest-rated 2019 recruit when he signed his National Letter of Intent during December’s early signing period. Once on campus, however, McCoy reportedly became disenchanted with the program: USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury ended his brief stint as offensive coordinator to take over as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, and McCoy reportedly noticed Trojans going through the motions during his two weeks of practice with the team. It didn’t take long for McCoy to enter into the NCAA’s transfer portal. USC released him from his letter of intent and he ended up signing with Texas on National Signing Day (after he had already enrolled there). McCoy’s story only got weirder once he eventually transferred back to USC after suffering from homesickness.George Pickens (Auburn/Georgia, 2019)George Pickens, the No. 1 player in the state of Alabama in the 2019 class, was considered a heavy Auburn lean heading into National Signing Day. It came as a shock, then, when Georgia swooped in seemingly from out of nowhere to nab the five-star wide receiver. It left Auburn fans and players noticeably shocked, but two Auburn players — defensive lineman Coynis Miller and receiver Anthony Schwartz — took it a step further, suggesting on Twitter that Georgia had paid for Pickens’ commitment.The tweets have since been deleted, but that’s what screengrabs are for. That also doesn’t change the fact this was a weird occurrence made even weirder by the fact it came from active players.Let’s check in on how Auburn players are taking the George Pickens news… pic.twitter.com/Icyq9Hp0Rk— Connor O’Gara (@cjogara) February 6, 2019Zachary Evans (2020, Georgia)Evans couldn’t sign an NLI on signing day because he already signed one with Georgia before being released of that commitment. Evans had previously announced he signed with Georgia at the All-American game. It’s been part of a long-winded recruitment process for a five-star running back who did not play with his team in the state championship game because he broke a team rule about cell phone usage.MORE: Where will Zachary Evans sign?Detraveon Brown (2020, Ole Miss, North Texas)Brown (Northwood, Shreveport, La.) broke down in tears while doing interviews after announcing he would play for Lane Kiffin at Ole Miss. The only problem with that? A LOI to Ole Miss did not exist. Ole Miss did not list Brown among its signees, and it turns out he signed a fake letter-of-intent.It’s a weird story, but at least it had a good ending for Brown. He signed with North Texas on Thursday.Jordan Burch (2020, South Carolina)Burch, one of the nation’s best defensive ends and a high school teammate of South Carolina coach Will Muschamp’s son, appeared committed to the Gamecocks during the early signing period.Burch, however, decided to wait until National Signing Day so he could sign with his teammates. National Signing Day is generally considered a momentous occasion for college football’s next crop of recruits.That said, it does have a history of awkward moments, and it seems one or two arise with each new recruiting cycle. This year, there were three that caught our attention. But did he send the NLI? He told one reporter “yes” and one reporter “no,” and his mother denied that he sent in the letter. What’s the holdup? Burch’s mother is still not on board with him going to South Carolina, and LSU remains in the hunt for the recruit.When asked what was going on, Muschamp said, “I don’t know. You’d have to ask them.”UPDATE: Burch did send the NLI at some point, because South Carolina put out this video the day after Signing Day.Jordan Burch is officially a Gamecock!#GarnetGang20 pic.twitter.com/dv4OnLNpwC— Gamecock Football (@GamecockFB) February 7, 2020last_img read more

Ten shot lead puts Vikings in control

first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsBarring a complete collapse, the Portland State Vikings appear to be heading to the NCAA Regionals.The Vikings, led by sophomore Britney Yada, shot a combined two-round score of 590 to take a 10-stroke lead into Wednesday’s final round of the Big Sky Conference Golf Championship at the Ocotillo Golf Resort in Chandler, AZ.Portland State, finishing the day with a round of 287, have four of the five players on the team — Yada, Kalyn Dodge, Alexia Brown and L.V. Rogers Bomber grad Lauren Taylor — in the top ten.“They were a little calmer and felt more at ease on the course today (than yesterday),” said Viking Coach Kathleen Takaishi on the university website.“They had a bad day yesterday. That is their first bad day in five or six rounds, so it happens.”After ballooning to a 79 during round one, Taylor, heading out on the course first, set the tone for the rest of the team. The pride of Granite Pointe birdied four holes in a row from the third through the sixth. Taylor finished the front nine at two-under par and the day with a one-over-par 73 on the 6,162-yard, par 72 Ocotillo Golf Resort course.Firing a 4-under-par 68, Yada tops the individual leader board with a four shot lead over Ashli Helstrom of Montana.“I told them we shot our average yesterday (303) and that isn’t a bad thing,” said Takaishi. “They just needed to learn from their mistakes, maybe play holes differently that they struggled on.”The Vikings can wrap up the Big Sky Championship Wednesday when the players take to the course for the final round of the 54-hole tournament.The NCAA West Regional is May 5-7.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more

Barça asks for the time to beat a Getafe without final hit

first_imgFC Barcelona won this Saturday 2-1 against Getafe CF, thanks to the goals of Antoine Griezmann and Sergi Roberto, in a match corresponding to day 24 of LaLiga Santander and which resolved the Catalans before the break, while his rival accused lack of spark after cutting distances with a target of Angel Rodriguez.This result put Barça with 52 points, tied in the coliderato with Real Madrid. For its part, the Azulón team saw its good league streak truncated and took 42 points in the third provisional place, in the absence of Sevilla playing against Espanyol during the Sunday round of meetings.The duel of benches between Quique Setién and José Bordalás, with past quarrels and apparently forgotten, was finally taken by the Blaugrana coach. But Setién barely enjoyed Leo Messi’s loose flashes, as vanishing points in an insipid match and not without controversy served from the VAR.The first 20 minutes made it clear that Getafe knows how to deal with adversaries of all kinds. The back lines close together, constant help in each marking and fast players in each band; That usual recipe put Marc-André ter Stegen in trouble, at least a couple of times.He even scored the visiting team first, by Allan Nyom. At the exit of a corner, his teammate Jorge Molina finished back in the first post and Ter Stegen deflected the ball, although leaving it to pleasure in the small area. The ’12’ of Getafe appeared to rivet the bottom of the net, although he had previously dodged Samuel Umtiti.Despite the fact that the main referee, Guillermo Cuadra Fernández, decreed the goal as valid in the first instance, he ended up canceling it by interpreting in the television repetition that Nyom had committed a foul in said struggle, due to a swipe with Umtiti’s shoulder.The locals quickly shook off the scare, inaugurating the score. Umtiti raised the play on the left side and passed the ball to Messi, who from the front of the area leaked at the first touch an assist to Griezmann. The French striker, with a subtle and also first-handed left-footed shot, ‘stung’ the ball before the rival goalkeeper’s exit. The withdrawal of Jordi Alba, replaced by Junior Firpo because of an injury to the adductor of the right leg, was not being noticed until then. Not surprisingly, Barça extended its advantage in the 39th minute, when Sergi Roberto finished a low pass in goal and from his own Junior Firpo band, active by the usual lane of Jordi Alba.There, the battle reached a point of anesthesia. Only the usual, Messi, stretched the fans of Camp Nou right on the edge of rest. A header from him, after a center pumped to the second post, was repelled by goalkeeper David Soria with a pretty stretched foot changed.Angel always meets Upon returning from changing rooms, the general dynamic was being the same until Ángel Rodríguez entered the field. Virtually everything was summed up in the Junior Firpo race without a prize on the left side, the leaked passes to nowhere by Messi and the frustrated unchecking of Griezmann.Bordalás’ plan was to send his pupils to attack, neglecting the defensive zone. But he didn’t care, since Getafe is rubbing shoulders this season with the ‘roosters’ and a goal would cheer the trick. Said and done, Angel scored 2-1 by flying in an unorthodox way a center of Jaime Mata from the right wing.Between the two central culé, and taking advantage of the fact that Gerard Piqué had miscalculated the jump for clearance, the ‘9’ blue put fear in the body at Camp Nou. A striker intended by Barça, at the expense of being allowed to sign a substitute for Ousmane Dembélé, thereby caused a stroke.To make matters worse, Angel himself had the tie in his boots, topping down a side and quite distant foul. Ter Stegen failed to try to catch the ball, but reacted immediately to prevent it from crossing the goal line; also, he touched the ball a third time, preventing Mata from pushing what would have been 2-2.The answer came with two Griezmann shots, but both deflected and leaving uncertainty until the final whistle. The first of them, after the nth low pass of Junior Firpo, sent him to the clouds; and the second was the definition of a backlash, executing a right too crossed in front of David Soria. The Blaugranas asked for an hour before an opponent without further hitting the conclusion.DATA SHEETFC BARCELONA: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Jordi Alba (Junior Firpo, min. 22); Busquets, Arthur (Rakitic, min. 75), De Jong; Messi, Griezmann and Ansu Fati (Vidal, min. 85).GETAFE CF: Soria; Nyom, Etxeita, Djené, Olivera (Kenedy, min. 52); Etebo (Amath, min. 68), Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Mata and Molina (Angel, min. 52).– GOALS:1-0, min. 33: Griezmann.2-0, min. 39: Sergi Roberto.2-1, min. 66: Angel.–ÁRBITRO: Cuadra Fernández (C.Balear).

Hubert Lawrence: Rally around the West Indies

first_imgThe victory by the young West Indians in last week’s Under-19 World Cup is brilliant news. It offers hope that the West Indies has the gumption to organise to win important tournaments in world cricket. It could be a launching pad to a new era of success. However you view the stumping controversy that arose early in the tournament, it must have loaded pressure on the West Indies team and its management. It’s even more reason to tap them all on the back. With Shivnarine Chanderpaul gone and the likelihood of other veterans going in the next few years, the young West Indies could be playing senior international cricket in the near future. Their watchwords must be patience and practise. Both will be needed to hurdle the challenges ahead. The sobering truth is that some young prospects never blossom. In 1995, Obea Moore ran 45.14 seconds for 400 metres to win the Pan-Am Junior title. His form then, at age 16, boosted his Muir High School team to a Penn Relays 4x400m record and vaulted him into the imagination of American track fans. A decade earlier, Richard Bucknor of Calabar held off another US sensation, William Reed of Central High, to secure 4x400m honours at the 1986 Penn Relays. Reed had already run the 400 metres in 45.17 seconds though just 15. Bucknor went on to a noteworthy career as a 110-metre hurdler for Texas A&M University and reached the semi-finals at the 1988 Olympics. By contrast, Reed and Moore faded as they grew older. Neither ever qualified for the US Olympic team. The young West Indians need to work diligently to avoid a similar fate. More than that, those who helped to mastermind their wonderful victory must keep working to groom them. With the cricket classroom of English county cricket long gone, the development of alternative methods of nurturing the region’s young crickets must continue. In this age when the Internet has brought copious knowledge to our fingertips, while also shortening attention spans, this effort must be extended. With a smaller talent pool than Australia, England, India and South Africa, success depends on keeping the champion team and other young West Indies prospects in the game. Late bloomers can jump into the pool of possible selection when the time is right. When the celebrations end, and no one should begrudge the team if it carries them on a bit, we can look to the future with optimism. All stakeholders will have to rally around the West Indies with the needed goodwill, ingenuity, and resources to make Test cricket success a reality again. If the story of these world champion West Indians is to have a happy ending, it’s the only way. – Hubert Lawrence has watched Champs, international cricket, and schoolboy football at Sabina Park.last_img read more
