Week 4 Fantasy PPR Rankings: Tight end

first_imgA highly drafted veteran and a potential breakout rookie tight end are proving that for all their respective talent, they might be iffy fantasy options. As you can see in our Week 4 TE PPR rankings, Jared Cook and T.J. Hockenson are falling fast and squarely on the start ’em, sit ’em bubble, but as is always the case, there are other waiver wire pickups and matchup-based sleeper tight ends to move up and take their places.Cook looks especially tough to start right now. He was targeted twice in Week 3 and has five catches through three games. We still think of him as a touchdown and down-the-field threat, but with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback, Cook just isn’t a reliable fantasy option, especially in PPR. Then in Detroit, after a monster Week 1, Hockenson has had back-to-back one-catch games. It’s not crazy to expect a rookie tight end to be boom-or-bust all season, so his value definitely takes a hit in PPR. WEEK 4 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWeek 4 brings with it the advent of bye weeks, and there’s only one to be concerned about at tight end: George Kittle. He obviously shouldn’t be dropped, so you may need to find another TE on the waiver wire and deal with rostering two tight ends for the week. One option, still available in more than half of Yahoo leagues, is Seattle’s Will Dissly.Dissly has had two-straight games of at least five catches, 50 yards and a score for the Seahawks. This week, he gets to face a Cardinals defense allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends this season. Dissly has a safe PPR floor with the amount Russell Wilson has looked his way, and he also has a high ceiling this week against a porous defense.WEEK 4 DFS LINEUPS:DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPP | Y! cash | Y! GPPWe’ve dropped O.J. Howard down our PPR rankings a bit from standard despite an encouraging Week 3 that saw him rack up 60 yards on three catches. It’s still concerning that he’s seen a total of nine targets through three games, including none in Week 2. Until the Bruce Arians-led offense in Tampa Bay wants to involve Howard more, his PPR ceiling will be limited as a touchdown- and big-play dependent option.One other name that could be singled out for deep-league owners is James O’Shaughnessy. He’s averaging four targets per game and has unseated Geoff Swaim as the top tight end in Jacksonville. With Gardner Minshew looking like a competent NFL quarterback, O’Shaughnessy should have a decent floor each week.WEEK 4 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiverReminder: Check back for updates during the week.

Popular Book Sale Expands Its Reach to Further Benefit Homeless

first_imgFacebook69Tweet0Pin0Submitted by the Olympia Unitarian Universalist CongregationHow do you move over 10,000 used books donated from the community to one building for a giant book sale? It takes enthusiastic volunteers and a good cause.  Books, Brownies and Beans is one of the largest one-day used book sales in the South Sound. Now in its 14th, year, this popular used book sale is organized by the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation (OUUC). Over the years it has raised a total of almost $80,000 to benefit the homeless.“This year we are broadening our efforts in order to contribute to more organizations out there helping the homeless,” said Sally Brennard, of the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Past sales benefitted Out of the Woods homeless shelter at the OUUC. This year proceeds from the sale will go to additional organizations, like Sidewalk, Community Youth Services, Quixote Village and Interfaith Works’ overnight shelter and warming center.Books, Brownies and Beans has gained a loyal following of serious and casual book enthusiasts who appreciate the huge selection of books at bargain prices. Books come from every corner of the literary world, from Pulitzer Prize winners to textbooks and everything in between. There is also a café selling a selection of fresh baked brownies, hot beverages, plus other treats. Live music plays throughout the day provided by a talented collection of musicians who rotate through.“The best thing about this sales is how the community comes together to make it happen. We’ve got more than 100 volunteers who collect, sort, and stack the thousands of books that are donated. And of course we’ve got the book lovers who line up early in the morning to buy the books. And the money goes to a great cause. It’s win, win, win,” said Mark Swanson, of the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation.In 2016, during a remodel of the church, the sale was conducted online only. There were concerns among organizers that the missed year would affect the donations and turnout for the following year. “But nope,” said Linda Crabtree, a past organizer. “The next year the whole doggone building was covered with books and people were lined up before our doors even opened – and it was 18°F out!” she added.Books, Brownies and Beans takes place on Saturday, February 25, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 2315 Division St. NW, Olympia, WA 98502. There is no entrance fee and visitors are encouraged to bring their own tote bags.last_img read more

Geli: “We want to finish the League; the club is strong and with a future”

first_imgYes, we believe that it is the best and the involvement of players, coaches, managers and employees in general has been commendable. We are very proud of all those who make up Girona. We have tried to make this situation affect as little as possible and the property was clear and wanted the people who work and help the club to grow to be as little harmed as possible. Furthermore, the players were the first to understand the situation and the agreement was good. The club is strong and has a future.Do you have contact with the players? How do you see them?They are training, to put it in some way, in the best possible way at home and they want to meet on a soccer field, live day by day. His hope is to be able to step forward when the League returns and achieve the goal.Is it direct promotion?You have to go step by step and the first thing is for the League to return. But we have a high quality squad capable of anything. We trust the players.Has a player told you that you don’t want to play again?Something like Fali del Cádiz said? They are statements he made on a personal level, there is no need to give it more thought. In all we work we want to have maximum security. For that protocols are made and we hope that everything is solved. And then, to play. But here nobody is ahead of anyone.Does Vinya comply with the League protocols for the return to training?I think it has the conditions that are requested and the doctors say that we are ready. We should have no problem. The team can be isolated, calm, without flow of people.At the club level they are leading a fundraising campaign for the Josep Trueta Hospital and they have transferred Les Hortes to the City Council …Yes, we want to be on the side of society and not only do we have to say it, we also have to act. And so we do it, we are trying, within our means, to help.How are the two positives for coronaviruses that were detected in Girona?Luckily everyone is recovered and well.The league’s deadline to sign a substitute for Brandon for his serious injury is about to end. Will they tie a player?It’s complicated. We are happy with the workforce we have, it is extensive and we believe that it has the capacity to push forward and fight for the objectives.Do you want to send a message to Girona fans?I hope everyone is in good health and we thank them for the effort they have made throughout the season to be next to the team. They must have patience and see if soon they can resume normal life and that everyone can enjoy their privileges of life and work. And enjoy Girona. What is it like to preside over a home-bound club?It is not easy, but for no one it is. We are living an exceptional moment. We telework and try to advance projects and initiatives.Do you think it will be played again?The intention is to do it. The most important thing now is people’s health, but once progress is seen in the current situation, it would be normal to resume all activities. Among them soccer. Of course, I think that everything will be behind closed doors at the beginning because Health will not let there be crowds.Would you be in favor of playing behind closed doors?It is a way to restart the League and it is what we want. There are days to dispute and decide things, in terms of promotions and descents, without playing them I would not see it well. Everything is open because in 11 games a lot can happen. Therefore, if everything progresses as they are transmitting to us and the confinement is over, the normal thing would be to train and play again.Does the viability of Girona go through playing again?I think that the viability of all the clubs and the general economy happens because everything works again. The clubs, and we are no exception, want the League to end.A few days ago they announced that they refused to do an ERTE and were betting on a voluntary salary reduction … The president of Girona, Delfí Geli (04-22-1969), talks with AS and highlights the club’s strength despite the crisis caused by Covid-19. It does not hide that to return to play you would have to do it behind closed doors. The goal, to return to First.His birthday was last Wednesday. How was the celebration in confinement?It was strange because I had never experienced anything like this. The truth is that I received many calls, I was with the family and we made an exception with the food, but nothing more. The important thing is to have health. It was noticed that at the gift level it went down (he jokes).last_img read more

Underground exploration at Aurora Gold Mine showing positive signs

first_imgNatural Resources Minister, Raphael Trotman with Senior Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Affairs of AGM, Perry Holloway (right), and Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Suresh Kalathil (left) and a company engineer during a visit to the underground tunnel where exploration is currently taking placeAfter securing clearance from both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), Guyana Goldfields Incorporated, owner of Aurora Gold Mine, has begun what is being described as successful underground explorations at its north-west Mazaruni, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) location.Following a tour of the mine on August 27, Senior Vice-President, Strategy and Corporate Affairs, Perry Holloway told the Department of Public Information (DPI), that the EPA’s clearance gives the company up to 2500 metres of underground exploration, plus test mining for 300,000 tons of ore. “We have started and have gone down a couple of hundred metres; maybe three or four hundred metres right now. Everything so far is going great, the rocks are cool, some people thought it would be hot, there is very little water, some people thought there would be a lot of water as we are very close to the Cuyuni River, none of that is true.”Holloway said side drilling would begin soon to determine where and how much gold was at the location.Natural Resources Minister, Raphael Trotman during the tour said he was happy with the current progress reports from the company. He had previously visited the camp with a South African delegation back in March this year before exploration began.“This is historic for Guyana. We have had underground mining in Guyana before, I’m not saying this is the first, but certainly, it is the only company doing it right now,” Minister Trotman stated.He added that this is a great opportunity for Guyanese to see and understand the functions of an underground mine.The Natural Resources Minister also stated that he was especially pleased to know that the company got its exploration clearance from both the GGMC and EPA.“I’m happy to see that issues and some challenges with GGMC and EPA have been resolved and the company has been able to start the exploratory aspect of the digging and hopefully things progressed and a full mining permit will be given by both the GGMC and EPA,” he said.Aurora Gold Mine is one of the largest gold mines in Guyana and the world, with an estimated reserve of 6.54 million ounces of gold.With respect to the underground mining exploration, $5 billion (US$25 million) is expected from the first three years of exploration.last_img read more

City film office wins top state award

first_imgSanta Clarita’s film office was among 10 finalists for the award, competing against such cities as Long Beach, Vista, Fresno, Riverside and Santa Rosa. “Five years ago, we recognized the need to develop a film office to help keep jobs and film work local, while growing the industry,” Mayor Marsha McLean said. “And in just a few short years, we’ve been able to create a model for a successful film program, an example that can be applied to a variety of industries in cities around the state.” The office was created in 2002 to help attract and retain the filming industry, including location filming and film-related businesses. The office currently issues permits for all location filming within Santa Clarita. Southern California lost some its appeal for film production in the past decade as the entertainment industry sought more affordable locations in Canada and the South. Santa Clarita fought back by promoting its proximity to Los Angeles and an affordable and simple permit process. SANTA CLARITA – The city’s film office, formed five years ago to combat runaway production, won a top state award this week for economic development. Santa Clarita won the grand prize in the California Association for Local Economic Development’s annual award for the agency, credited with bringing more than $16 million to the Santa Clarita Valley each year. Santa Clarita is home to television productions that include Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101,” HBO’s “Big Love” and “John from Cincinnati,” CBS’ “The Unit” and “NCIS,” and FX’s “Drive” and “The Riches.” State Assemblyman Juan Arambula and CALED chief Wayne Schell presented the award Thursday in Monterey to Assistant City Manager Ken Striplin and film associate Jason Crawford. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

No trophies and I will go back home, vows Ssimbwa

first_img0Shares0000Sofapaka head coach Sam Ssimbwa strolls around during a past training session at the club’s Eastleigh High School training ground. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 15- Sofapaka FC head coach Sam Ssimbwa has vowed to leave his post at the helm of the club if he fails to win silverware in his second year in charge of Batoto ba Mungu.The Ugandan tactician re-joined joined the 2009 league champions at the beginning of last season and helped steer them to second spot finish having just managed to stay alive in the top tier on the final day of the previous season. Ssimbwa who won the GOtv Shield with the club during his first stint now says he wants to win at least one piece silverware, the Kenyan Premier League title being top of his ambition.“This (winning trophies) is what I want. If I fail I go back to Uganda because two years in this team at least I want to get silverware. Wherever I have been travelling to I have gotten silverware. Here also, I want the same,” Ssimbwa told Capital Sport.The club endured a torrid period in 2016 due to lack of sponsorship but once a shirt sponsor landed at the beginning of last season, their fortunes changed and they were considered serious title contenders until Gor Mahia pulled away.Ssimbwa reckons it will be a tough charge for the title, picking out Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards and Tusker as three of the clubs he feels will offer the toughest competition.“It is not easy because every team is coming in to fight for the title. Gor Mahia have a very strong team, AFC Leopards have also put together a very strong outfit, I even saw Matano in Uganda. Tusker are there, Posta Rangers also, so it will not be easy. But we will fight. We are Batoto ba Mungu,” a confident Ssimbwa noted.Newly signed Sofapaka forward Ezekiel Okare attempts to make a pass under pressure from Maurice Odipo during a past training session at their Eastleigh High School base. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluHis sentiments have been echoed by skipper Hillary Echesa who is confident that the team put together will be able to challenge for top honors.“I think we now have a very strong team and having finished second last season, the only way for us is up. We have to work hard and I trust with the players we have we can actually achieve that target of winning trophies. Everyone is up for it. The motivation and the spirit of the players is brilliant,” the experienced Echesa noted.Sofapaka have assembled a strong team for the new season with high profile players landing at the stable. Among the new faces at the club include strikers Stephen Waruru and Kepha Aswani who scored 13 goals each last season for Ulinzi Stars and Sofapaka respectively.Also joining the side is Burundi defender Mousa Omar, Ibrahim Kitawi and Elli Asieche from Kariobangi Sharks, Jackson Saleh and Vitalis Akumu from Western Stima, Teddy Osok on loan from Gor Mahia, Yussuf Mohammed from Muhoroni Youth as well as goalkeeper Ian Otieno who left AFC Leopards.Newly signed Sofapaka midfielder Ibrahim Kitawi attempts to make a pass under pressure during a past training session at their Eastleigh High School base. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluThough Ssimbwa says the team is not as strong as the one he had in 2010 and 2011, he reckons it is a better team than last season’s.“I can’t say it is the strongest because to me I measure strength with the number of national team players I have. You can’t compare my squad with that of Gor Mahia. But overall I think it is better than last season,” the coach said.“But we have just started our pre-season training and we can’t really gauge them. We have to play friendly matches and see what they can add to the team and their strengths,” the tactician added.Meanwhile, Batoto ba Mungu will face Ssimbwa’s old employers Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) in a friendly match next week with the Ugandan champions touring the country for training.Ssimbwa also said they would be travelling to Sudan for further friendly matches before they kick off their season at home against Bandari on February 4.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
