Week 17 Fantasy TE Rankings: Tyler Higbee, Austin Hooper’s matchups make great ‘starts’

first_imgLeave it to the Week 17 fantasy TE rankings to still be boring. It’s been the least volatile position all season, and those fantasy football owners who play in the NFL’s final regular season week are not catching any sort of excitement here. By this point, there’s almost no chance you’ve made your final without a solid TE, so odds are you won’t be looking to the waiver wire to stream anyone in this final week.The biggest late-season revelation at the position remains Tyler Higbee. He’s topped 100 yards in four-straight weeks, surely carrying you all the way to your title game. And it gets even better — he takes on the Cardinals in Week 17. That’s a dream matchup for Higbee, a player not many would’ve expected to win them fantasy championships but who now has a chance to. Note: These rankings will be updated throughout the week, so check back for the latest.WEEK 17 DFS:DK Cash | DK GPP | Y!

The matchup for Zach Ertz against the Giants is also one worth looking forward to after Dwayne Haskins threw all over New York in Week 16.If you’ve gotten this far and need a stream, there’s no need to fear — the top target should be Dallas Goedert for the Eagles against the Giants. He had a huge Week 16 game, and with all the Philly WR injuries, Goedert is one of Carson Wentz’s top targets. You could also target the athletic Jonnu Smith for Tennessee since the Titans have chosen to finally involve him enough to make him fantasy relevant. Other options include Noah Fant (vs. Raiders) and Kaden Smith (vs. Eagles), with Smith being a two-TD hero in Week 16.WEEK 17 PPR RANKINGS:Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endOne thing to look out for, as well: Mark Andrews could sit out Week 17. The Ravens have clinched the AFC’s top seed and could choose to rest their studs. If Andrews sits, target one of the streams mentioned above (or Hayden Hurst in that case, who would be the biggest beneficiary of an Andrews absence).(Update: Be on the lookout for Zach Ertz’s status, as well, as he may be a true game-time decision Sunday. Dallas Goedert would be a strong TE1 if Ertz sits against the Giants.)MORE: Which players are sitting out Week 17?last_img read more

Exclusive – Carragher tells Sturridge: No pressure but it’s down to you to kickstart Liverpool’s season!

first_imgJamie Carragher does not want to put too much pressure on Daniel Sturridge’s shoulders, but admits the striker is Liverpool’s most likely saviour.The 25-year-old has not played since damaging his hamstring while on England duty in August, and the Reds have struggled in his absence.But he is now back in training and in line to return to action for Liverpool in their first game after the international break, against Crystal Palace on November 23.“You can’t just expect Daniel Sturridge to come in and fire on all cylinders,” he told the Colin Murray show. “He has been out for while so you don’t want to put too much pressure on him, but it looks like it is down to him because there is not much else there at the moment.“Hopefully, when this international break is out the way, we will start seeing the real Liverpool. It will be a different Liverpool to last season, for obvious reasons – Luis Suarez going and the new players coming in – but we have to start picking it up because before you know it Southampton might even be too far ahead, never mind the other top teams.”last_img read more

Canada PM Skips Khalsa Day Parade in Toronto This Year

first_imgRecovering from the debacle of his India trip and resulting controversies surrounding the visit, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau opted to skip the annual Khalsa Day Parade in Toronto on April 29, the Hindustan Times reported. His appearance at the event last year invited disapproval from the Indian government.The parade, which sees Sikhs sporting Khalistan flags and chanting Sikh independence slogans, was, however, attended by top Canadian leaders, who also participated in Surrey’s Baisakhi celebration in British Columbia last week. Among the politicians who attended both the events was New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh, who has faced heat for being associated with Sikh separatist events in the past. He said in Toronto that human rights violations in India were similar to those in Syria and those against the Rohingya in Myanmar, the Hindustan Times reported. While Singh’s presence at the Surrey event went unannounced and unmarked on social media, he was in the limelight in Toronto.Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne also addressed the gathering, where banners for a 2020 referendum for a separate Sikh homeland, and Khalistan flags were seen flying. The posters at Khalsa Day Parade featured Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the founder of Khalistan movement. Floats in memory of assassins of former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi were also seen at the event, the report added. Cabinet minister Navdeep Bains was also present at the parade, along with a host of other Canadian MPs and political leaders.Trudeau, who was scheduled to be in Toronto for the #TorontoStrong vigil held in memory of victims in a van rampage, bypassed the nagar kirtan — a neighborhood recital of hymns — held at Nathan Phillips Square in downtown Toronto. An Indian official called Trudeau’s move as “some improvement,” even as the attendance of other leaders at the events seemed like “business as usual,” the report added.The referendum posters and floats honoring Indira Gandhi’s assassins were also seen at Baisakhi celebration in Surrey last week, which was attended by British Columbia’s premier John Horgan, and several provincial legislators, according to local Surrey publications.The Surrey event was organized by Dashmesh Durbar gurdwara, where Talwinder Singh Parmar, the accused of the bombing of Air India flight 182 in 1985, is memorialized.Saying that politicians in Canada respect “freedom for expression” of Canadian Sikhs, Gurpatwant Pannun, legal adviser for Sikhs For Justice, the organization that was present at Khalsa Day Parade and is at the forefront of the 2020 referendum demand, told the Hindustan Times: “It’s not India’s place to direct Canadian political leaders where they can go.”The Khalsa Day Parade was also held at other places around the world, including Birmingham in the United Kingdom. New Jersey’s Hoboken Mayor Ravinder Bhalla attended the event at Manhattan. Victoria in Australia saw a parade for the first time in 100 years, Times Colonist reported. These parades generally include men, women and children dressed in traditional clothes, live music, a display of Sikh martial arts, decorated floats and culinary specialties.
