Fantasy Football Stock Watch: Baker Mayfield, Darren Waller among buy-low, sell-high candidates for Week 13

first_imgMost fantasy football leagues have passed their trade deadlines, but heading into Week 13 and nearing the fantasy playoffs, you can still take stock of the guys on your team. Baker Mayfield and Darren Waller are among the players you might want to assess before you make start ’em, sit ’em decisions this week and moving forward.So, let’s dive in to this week’s stock watch. Feel free to shoot me feedback on Twitter @JustinVreeland, and remember to check out Fantasy Alarm for more great analysis like this all season long! MORE: Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm’s season-long toolsFantasy Football Trade Candidates: Stock upBaker Mayfield, QB CLE: Everyone was done with Mayfield. “He’s trash. I am cutting him. Time to replace him with literally anyone.” Those are a few statements you might have seen. To be fair, the struggle was real, but he has found his groove now and is someone you want to lock into your lineup. He had just one 20-point fantasy performance through Week 10, but he now has back-to-back games in the 20s, including this week’s season-high total of 24.58 points. A matchup with the Dolphins didn’t hurt, but he has good matchups over the next three weeks, as well. He will face a Steelers team that he scored nearly 22 fantasy points against in Week 11, and then the Bengals and Cardinals after that. He can be viewed as a top-10 option at the position for that span of games. If you can still make trades in your league. Anthony Miller, WR CHI: Miller had exactly zero games with double-digit fantasy points through 10 weeks, and he had just one game with over seven targets in that span. Now, in the past two games, he has back-to-back outings with at least 11 fantasy points and has totaled 20 targets in that span (he had 30 targets through 10 weeks). He appears to be Trubisky’s second option in the offense (behind A-Rob) now, which isn’t saying a whole lot in this offense, but it’s an improvement. He is still searching for his first touchdown of the season, and fantasy owners would still be taking a risk using him in their seasonal lineups. However, he is showing enough to warrant a spot on your bench and a look in DFS. He has a nice matchup with the Lions on Thanksgiving Day and could be the Bears leading receiver if Allen Robinson has to deal with Darius Slay in coverage all afternoon.MORE WEEK 13:Waiver pickups | FAAB budget | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOS Jonathan Williams, RB IND: I’ll admit, I didn’t jump on the Williams bandwagon after his strong game in Week 11, but he followed it up with an even bigger game in Week 12, and we have to take it seriously (at least while Marlon Mack is out). He finished with 26 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Colts’ 20-17 loss to the Texans. I am shocked that he racked up that many touches, but it’s clear that he is the Mack (hand) replacement. The Colts gave Jordan Wilkins zero touches in this game. Williams has a matchup with the Titans in Week 13, who just allowed Leonard Fournette to score 36.9 fantasy points against them (Williams isn’t on his level, but it’s not a bad sign). You can continue to roll Williams out there while Mack remains on the sidelines.Jared Cook, TE NO: Cook scored a season-high 21.9 fantasy points in the Saints’ win over the Panthers, hauling in six-of-eight targets for 99 yards and a touchdown. It was his third straight game with at least 11 fantasy points, a total he only reached twice in the first nine weeks of the season. He has really come on strong lately, and the Saints needed a second option behind Michael Thomas — it appears that Cook is just that. He has four touchdowns in the past five games and is locked into a major role right now. He has a matchup with the Falcons in Week 13, who he scored 13.4 points against in Week 10, despite the Saints losing 26-9. You can expect New Orleans to put up more than nine points this time around, and Cook should be in for another strong game. He can be used with confidence going forward and is worth acquiring if you can.WEEK 13 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerFantasy Football Trade Candidates: Stock downDerek Carr, QB OAK: Carr has struggled to take advantage of strong matchups over the past couple games, and it has him nearly off the fantasy radar completely. He had zero touchdowns against the Jets in Week 12, and managed to score just 5.18 fantasy points. He did have nearly 21 points against the Bengals in Week 11, but that was after a 13.12-point performance against the Chargers in Week 10. He has a total of two passing touchdowns in the past three games, giving him 15 for the season. The Jets were able to shut down Josh Jacobs (they’ve shut down backs regularly this year), and Carr was unable to step up against their poor pass defense. A Week 13 matchup with the Chiefs may look appealing for fantasy purposes, but it will likely be Jacobs who bounces back and does all the fantasy scoring for the Raiders.WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPPEmmanuel Sanders, WR SF: Sanders had a very nice three-game stretch in which he scored 11, 12.5, and 24.2 fantasy points in Weeks 7-9, but he has come crashing down since. Over his past three games, he hasn’t had a single game with seven fantasy points and has totaled 13.2 points in that span. In the 49ers’ 37-8 win over the Packers in Week 12, Sanders finished with just one catch for 15 yards on only one target. That volume is simply not going to get it done, and Sanders’ rib injury probably hasn’t helped matters. George Kittle’s return this week took away a lot of the volume for Sanders, and he was also outplayed and outscored by Deebo Samuel (who looks like the Niners’ top receiver at this point) for the third straight game. His next couple matchups do not look great, and it would be risky to use him in any format. He can be left on the bench moving forward, and if you can still sell him, now is the time.WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endJames White, RB NE: White had at least double-digit PPR fantasy points in all eight games he had played in prior to Week 11, but he now has back-to-back games with fewer than 10 points, including this week’s dud 0.90 point game. He finished with two carries for five yards and hauled in one-of-three targets for negative-six yards. The one good thing with White was his consistency, as he completely lacks upside, having zero games with 20 points and just one game with more than 15, but the consistency seems to have now vanished, too. Rex Burkhead has taken on some of the passing work out of the backfield, and it’s hard to trust White right now in any format.MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup Builder Darren Waller, TE OAK: Waller’s cliff dive continued this week as he finished with 7.1 PPR fantasy points. He hauled in three-of-six targets for 41 yards. It was his fourth straight game without a touchdown, his fifth straight sub-80 yard game, and he is averaging just three receptions per game over his past five games. He has reached double-digit fantasy points just once in the past five games and hasn’t topped 13 points in any of them. This just simply isn’t getting it done, and you can’t really look at him as a “lineup lock” anymore. He is still a talented player, but the Raiders’ passing attack has really struggled lately and will never be explosive. You can still play him on most occasions, but don’t be afraid to consider other options and see what you can sell him for if your league still allows trading. MORE: Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm’s season-long toolsFantasy Football Stock WatchKaden Smith, TE NYG: You may be asking yourself “Who?!” Totally understandable. The rookie tight end had zero fantasy points through nine weeks and just 1.1 points heading into Week 12 against the Bears. However, he managed to haul in five-of-six targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Giants loss, and that is enough to keep an eye on him given the tight end landscape. No, you don’t need to add him or use him in your lineups, but just take note of him and see how he does if Evan Engram (foot) is forced to miss further action. The sixth-round pick had a productive final season at Stanford last year, hauling in 47 passes for 635 yards and a pair of scores. He doesn’t really have any standout qualities, but he does have strong hands and is physical.last_img read more

More than 9,500 in Iowa file unemployment claims

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — More than 9,500 people filed unemployment claims last week in Iowa, and the number of continuing claims still tops 150,000. Iowa Workforce Development reported Thursday that there were 9,516 claims for unemployment insurance in the week ending June 13. That’s a little higher than last week but the number of continuing claims was down by about 3,500. The highest number of new claims came from workers employed in manufacturing. The number of unemployment claims in Iowa and across the country have soared since March, when officials ordered businesses to close or limit their operations in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Most of those restrictions have been eased in recent weeks.last_img

Red Bank School Superintendent to Retire at End of Month

first_imgRED BANK – Superintendent of Public Schools Dr. Laura Morana has submitted notice to the school board that she will retire at the end of the month.Morana was in her eighth year with the district. Her last day will be Sept. 30.The timing of her retirement is unusual in that it is occurring at the start of the school year. Her announcement was not included on the board’s posted agenda.When asked about the timing, board President Ben Forest declined to comment calling it a “personnel matter.”He said Morana had informed the board prior to her public announcement.During Wednesday’s board meeting the board began setting up a strategy to replace Morana. “We are going as quickly as we can to find a replacement for Dr. Morana. In the meantime, we will be looking for an interim superintendent.”Forest said it is expected that the district will hire an interim superintendent from outside the district.“The board is pleased with the legacy and record that Dr. Morana has left us,” Forest said. “The board gave her an ovation last night.”Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna said he was “saddened to see Laura go. But at the same time I am extraordinarily grateful that she has been able to devote seven years of her life to Red Bank and in that time brought a level of excellence and accomplishment that had never been experienced by us in the past.“Dr. Morana raised the bar and challenged students, parents and guardians, teachers, administrators and staff to achieve new levels of excellence.  For that I am thankful,” Menna said..last_img read more

Police Sergeant hacked to death, suspect hangs self

first_imgBy Andrew CarmichaelA murder-suicide at Union, typically referred to as Number 30 Village, on the West Coast of Berbice (WCB), Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) has left residents in a state of shock.Woman Police Sergeant Kenisha Sheriff-Fraser, 39, was found in a pool of blood at her lot 370 Union Village, WCB home.Dead: Murder suspect, Clayton AnthonyThe alleged suspect has been identified as Clayton Anthony, also called “Woody”, 42, a porkknocker who occupies the bottom flat of the said house. His body was found hanging from a tree at the village seashore.Police in a release confirmed they are investigating a murder-suicide. According to the release, the Sergeant’s body was discovered in a bedroom in the upper flat of her two-storied home with multiple chop wounds. A blood-stained cutlass, suspected to be the murder weapon, was recovered at the scene.Deputy Commander Edmond Cooper said the investigators were responding to a report of a murder without the knowledge of who the victim was.The house where the murder took placeHe said when the Police arrived, they discovered several chop wounds on the body of the deceased. “As the Police continued their investigation we tried to locate the perpetrator and at the back of Number 30 Village at the seaside, we saw him hanging from a tree.”Cooper noted that the investigation will continue. He referred to the Sergeant’s death as a tragic loss to the Guyana Police Force. “We will do all in our power to control the family at this point in time and the mother who happens to be a Lance Corporal, stationed at the Weldaad Police Station.”When Sheriff-Fraser’s body was discovered, she was naked and there were chop wounds to the stomach, forehead, neck and arms.Sheriff-Fraser, who is the Treasurer at the Bob Gilliard Church in the village, is said to have been preparing for church when she met her demise.At the home, several of her colleagues were inconsolable as they tried to come to grip with the fact that the Sergeant who worked at the Registry Department at Central Police Station in New Amsterdam was no more.A neighbour, Avril Carmichael, who discovered the body told Guyana Times that Sheriff-Fraser was making strange sounds prior to her going into the house.She said it was her 29-year-old granddaughter who heard what is believed to be someone crying and alerted her. “I did not hear no quarreling. My granddaughter said she hear her screaming out like crying and all of a sudden the crying stopped so she tell me to go over,” Carmichael revealed.At first she thought it was Sheriff-Fraser’s mother who is a Lance Corporal. She said she called and got no answer and then attempted to push open the front door but it was locked.“So I go around to the back and open the door and I call but no one answer. I went inside and turn the knob on the first bedroom door and it was locked and so I went to the next bedroom and push open the door and then I discover this gruesome sight lying on the floor….”An alarm was then raised and several persons rushed into the building.Meanwhile, Carmichael explained that one of her great-grandchildren was on her step when the suspect came out of the house and she asked him what happened to Kenisha. “He didn’t answer her but when I look outside I see when he pack up a rope and walk out the yard and go along about his business… I see him walking over the bridge going to the sea dam side and then I go over,” she related.Meanwhile, Sheriff-Fraser’s eldest son told Guyana Times that for the past two days, his mother was acting in a strange manner. He said she told him that she had to be in Georgetown to conduct business but did not elaborate.Moreover, the son related that the suspect was very friendly and helpful to the family.The woman leaves to mourn three children ages 18, 11 and five years old, along with her husband and mother. Meanwhile, Police say the bodies are at the Anthony’s Funeral Home awaiting post-mortem examinations.last_img read more

Abraham double earns Lampard first win

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham runs to celebrate with boss Frank Lampard © AFP / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASNORWICH, United Kingdom, Aug 24 – Tammy Abraham fired Chelsea to their first win of the Frank Lampard era as the young striker’s double clinched a 3-2 victory against Norwich on Saturday.Lampard had gone three games without a win in all competitions since he took over as Chelsea manager, but the Blues legend finally got off the mark thanks to his faith in Abraham. Abraham had failed to score in his three previous appearances this term, but the 21-year-old striker bagged his first goal for the club to put Chelsea ahead in the sunshine at Carrow Road.A pulsating encounter saw Todd Cantwell equalise for Norwich before Mason Mount restored Chelsea’s advantage.Teemu Pukki’s fifth goal in three games this season brought Norwich back on level terms before half-time, only for Abraham to give Chelsea the points with his predatory second half finish.After a thrashing at Manchester United and a draw with Leicester in Chelsea’s first two Premier League matches, Lampard will have been encouraged by the displays of Abraham and Mount.He has pinned his hopes on the youngsters to lead Chelsea through a potentially difficult season that sees the club under a transfer ban and without their best player following Eden Hazard’s move to Real Madrid.While Chelsea have now conceded nine goals in four games in all competitions under Lampard, the former England midfielder will hope his team’s attacking potential keeps them afloat.When Pedro suffered a hamstring injury in the warm-up and was replaced by Ross Barkley, it left Lampard to send out the youngest start league line-up for Chelsea in 25 years at an average age of 24 years and 208 days.Abraham was one of the youngsters Lampard had backed to shine as he replaced Olivier Giroud after being benched against Leicester last weekend.Subjected to racist abuse on social media after missing the penalty which saw Chelsea lose the European Super Cup penalty shoot-out against Liverpool recently, Abraham took just three minutes to reward Lampard for his decision.Cesar Azpilicueta whipped over a precise cross and Abraham alertly drifted away from the Norwich defence to drill a fine first-time strike past Tim Krul from 10 yards.– Touchline celebrations –Abraham, who flourished on loan at second tier Aston Villa last season, celebrated by sprinting to the touchline to hug Lampard as the pair were mobbed by their team-mates.Three minutes later, Chelsea’s creaky defence was exposed by Emiliano Buendia’s burst into the penalty area.Buendia found Pukki, fresh from last weekend’s hat-trick against Newcastle, and this time the prolific Finland striker was the provider with a low cross that Cantwell turned in from close-range.Lampard’s team responded in the 17th minute when Norwich were caught in possession outside their own area and Christian Pulisic fed Mount, the 20-year-old midfielder cutting inside and firing home for his second goal of the season.Andreas Christensen’s point-blank header was superbly pushed over by Krul and Norwich were back on level terms in the 31st minute.Buendia played a pass to Pukki and, with Chelsea’s defenders slow to react, the former Celtic forward demonstrated why he has taken the Premier League by storm with an angled shot that evaded Kepa Arrizabalaga’s limp attempt to save.Mount and Pulisic were both narrowly off target, while Azpilicueta sliced over and Emerson shot straight at Krul as Chelsea pressed hard after the interval.Azpilicueta appealed in vain for a penalty after a challenge from Marco Stiepermann, but Chelsea’s pressure was rewarded in the 68th minute.Picked out by Mateo Kovacic, Abraham left Grant Hanley and Jamal Lewis in his wake as he jinked past the Norwich defenders before slamming a fierce strike past Krul’s mistimed dive.Norwich’s Ben Godfrey headed against the bar moments later, while Chelsea were denied a fourth goal when Kurt Zouma’s effort was disallowed by VAR for Giroud’s foul on Krul.0Shares0000(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
