Fantasy football Week 7 players to add: Justin Herbert, Tee Higgins, Preston Williams – The Denver Post

The already-thin position of running back took a considerable hit in Week 6, sidelining Mark Ingram (Ravens), Raheem Mostert (49ers) and Miles Sanders (Eagles).

Although there are some reasonable options at the position, neither represent an immediate impact on the Week 7 waiver wire, where a number of players returning from byes should have higher priority.

Several players previously profiled here remain available, giving fantasy owners at least one last chance to acquire them.

DALLAS GOEDERT, TE, Eagles: With TE Zach Ertz out 3 to 4 weeks, Goedert comes off injured reserve in time for Thursday night’s game against the Giants. Prior to breaking his thumb in Week 3, Goedert outperformed Ertz with 13 receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown while also compiling a 73% catch rate. He was on the field more than 85% of the time when healthy, making Goedert a solid must-add for owners in need of a streaming option or simply ready to ditch their current TE. Goedert will have low-end TE1 value while Ertz is out.

JUSTIN HERBERT, QB, Chargers: The rookie went into his Week 6 bye with a 7 to 1 TD to INT rate over his past two games, with only three other quarterbacks averaging more passing yards per game than the sixth overall pick of this year’s draft (298.8). Herbert returns this week with a favorable matchup against a Jaguars defense ranked 28th in passing yards allowed, beginning what should be a solid five-game stretch (at Broncos, Raiders, at Dolphins, Jets) that could elevate him from trendy streamer to must-start status. With Lamar Jackson on a bye this week, Herbert should be at the top of the list if he’s available.

TRAVIS FULGHAM, WR, Eagles: Surprisingly, Fulgham is still available in a majority of leagues despite scoring in three straight games and pulling in 18 of 26 targets in the same span. The Eagles are slowly getting healthy at receiver, with DeSean Jackson (hamstring) expected to return as early as Thursday’s game against the Giants and Alshon Jeffery (foot) due back in a couple of weeks. Still, Fulgham has made an impressive mark on the Eagles offense and should continue to be a target of choice for QB Carson Wentz. There’s no reason Fulgham continues to be listed here.

TEE HIGGINS, WR, Bengals: A.J. Green had his best game of the season in Sunday’s loss to the Colts, but Higgins’ six catches for 125 yards continues what has been a solid stretch for the rookie from Clemson. Higgins has 14 catches for 264 yards in his past three games, averaging an exceptional 18.9 yards per catch. The Bengals have also used him as a runner on occasion, only enhancing his value. Rookie QB Joe Burrow has established a strong rapport with Higgins, who is developing into a reliable WR3/WR4 and should be added in all formats.

J.D. MCKISSIC, RB, Washington: McKissic has 19 receptions over the past three games and was clearly the lead back in Sunday’s loss to the Giants, recording a 53% snap count compared to starter Antonio Gibson’s 37%. He’s a good must-add in PPR formats now that it’s established that QB Kyle Allen has come to count on McKissic. Playing in the muddled NFC East will work in McKissic’s favor, especially on Sunday when he’ll get his turn to exploit a Cowboys defense ranked 28th in total yards allowed.

JAMYCAL HASTY, RB, 49ers: Don’t assume Jerick McKinnon will return as the featured back now that Raheem Mostert is heading to short-term IR. McKinnon had the higher snap count percentage (32%) than Hasty (21%), yet it was the latter who was on the field to help San Francisco close out Sunday night’s win over the Rams. Tevin Coleman (knee) is still sidelined, which means Hasty and McKinnon will get the bulk of the carries in Week 7 against the Patriots. For now, Hasty should have a slight edge.

BOSTON SCOTT, RB, Eagles: Scott had 48% of Philadelphia’s RB snap counts in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens and is clearly the top option over Corey Clement (7% snap count on Sunday). He’s had limited action this season, but Scott had a combined 39 touches (29 rushes, 10 receptions) in two games against the Giants last year, including his memorable Week 17 performance that saw him score three touchdowns and amass 138 yards from scrimmage. He’s a good streaming option for those Miles Sanders owners looking to replace his production, but keep in mind the Giants allow just 3.7 yards per carry, fifth lowest in the league.

PRESTON WILLIAMS, WR, Dolphins: Although he hasn’t been targeted more than five times since Week 1, Williams might be on the verge of an upswing once the Dolphins return from this week’s bye. DeVante Parker sustained a groin injury in Sunday’s shutout of the Jets and could be sidelined for a few weeks. If so, Williams, eighth in the league with 17.8 yards per catch, would become the top option. Owners with open roster spots looking to stash away a wideout with upside should look in Williams’ direction.

KEELAN COLE, WR, Jaguars: Cole is averaging better than six targets per game and comes off a season-high, 143-yard outing in Sunday’s loss to the Lions, marking the first time this season he exceeded the 60-yard barrier. He gets another favorable matchup in Week 7 when the Jaguars meet the Chargers. D.J. Chark remains the clear WR1 in Jacksonville, but Cole is a good stash away option with some streaming value.

ANTHONY FIRKSER, TE, Titans: Once starter Jonnu Smith (ankle) went down early in Week 6, Firkser emerged as Ryan Tannehill’s top target as the duo combined for eight catches for 113 yards and a touchdown on nine targets. Firkser has an 85% catch rate on 20 targets this season and would make for an interesting streaming option if Smith is unavailable for Sunday’s showdown against the undefeated Steelers.

Jacinda Ardern hints at a mostly red Government with a slight tinge of Green

The next Government is beginning to take shape even though Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Green co-leaders James Shaw and Marama Davidson are staying mum on the substance of their talks.

Meanwhile the role of deputy prime minister appears to be there for Labour deputy leader Kelvin Davis’ taking if he wants it – but he is also giving little away on whether he does.

Formal talks between Labour and the Greens are likely to run into next week, with the new Government expected to be sworn in the following week.

And while neither side will be drawn on the chances of a formal coalition, it seems unlikely given Ardern’s comments about Labour’s mandate to govern alone and her wish to respect National supporters who may have ticked red for the first time.

That indicated, Davidson conceded, a Government unwilling to go as far or as fast as the Greens want on climate change, biodiversity protection and inequality.

Her counterpart James Shaw was more diplomatic.

“We’re in that funny stage post-election where everybody’s trying to read tea leaves in absolutely everything that anybody says,” he said.

“We just don’t have any comment about the nature of the negotiations until they’re actually done.”

Ardern said she will take an inclusive approach and expected any governing arrangement with the Greens to be announced next week after negotiations concluded.

“I’m interested in areas of co-operation where we can use the strengths that exist in their team,” Ardern said.

That could indicate Shaw remaining Climate Change Minister, though Shaw would not comment on the possibility of any ministerial roles.

Any agreement would also need to be signed off by Green Party members.

Meanwhile Ardern repeated her support for the deputy PM role to be filled by the party’s deputy leader, which is determined by Labour’s caucus.

Many caucus colleagues offered support for Kelvin Davis taking the deputy PM role, but when asked about it yesterday, Davis did not put his hand up.

“Any decision around roles and responsibilities are yet to be made. Really, that’s all I’m going to say about it,” Davis said.

Willie Jackson, who co-chairs Labour’s Māori caucus, said the caucus supported Davis no matter what he decided.

He rejected the idea that there would be a backlash from Māori if Davis, the MP for Te Tai Tokerau and Minister for Māori Crown Relations, didn’t want the position.

“There’s no slap in the face because there’s only been support for Kelvin and for the Māori caucus at this time,” Jackson said.

“There are no expectations. We’re working on what Kelvin wants.”

But Treaty Negotiations Minister Andrew Little said “it would not be received positively” if someone other than Davis took the role.

“He is a very solid, very hard worker and we have a very diverse caucus and he would be an excellent deputy prime minister,” Little said.

Grant Robertson, who is considered likely to become deputy leader if Davis chose to step down, said the role of deputy PM was a decision for Ardern.

“I totally support Kelvin. He is the deputy leader of the Labour Party and he will remain deputy leader of the Labour Party, I’m sure,” Robertson said.

What’s Putin planning? Russia sends warships and jets to Arctic for top-secret military op

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Russian strategic bombers and anti-submarine frigates have been sent to the Arctic for a sabre-rattling military drill. Two Russian Tu-95MS strategic bombers performed flight over the Arctic and the Far East. The bombers were escorted by US Air Force F-22 fighter jets.

The Russian Navy also sent a missile frigate to the Artic to perform anti-submarine warfare drills.

The Russian Northern Fleet said: “Today the crew of the Northern Fleet’s frigate Fleet Admiral Kasatonov started practicing assignments of anti-submarine warfare drills in the Barents Sea.

“This is in compliance with the Fleet’s combat training plans for the summer training period.

“The sailors will accomplish a set of missions to search for, maintain contact and track a notional enemy’s submarine with the help of the onboard sonar equipment.

“At the final stage of the drills, live-fire exercises with the anti-submarine warfare armament will be carried out.”

The Russian Navy is set to carry out drills with its advanced Project 22350 frigates.

These frigates are expected to become the Russian Navy’s most advanced warships in their class.

The frigates are armed with Oniks and Kalibr missiles and Poliment-Redut air defense missile systems.

The naval drills in the Arctic also involved several Russian submarines.

The drills tested the Northern Fleet’s new naval aviation equipment.

In the eastern Arctic, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, NORAD, reported on Tuesday that US Air Force fighter aircraft intercepted two Russian Tu-95 bombers in the Artic.

The US jets then escorted the two Su-35 fighters near Alaska.

NORAD stated the Rusian bombers stayed in international airspace.

On Tuesday Russia’s Defence Ministry released their own statement of the incident.

They reported: “Two Tu-95MS strategic missile-carrying bombers of long-range aviation performed a scheduled flight in the airspace over the neutral waters of the Chukchi, Beaufort, Bering and Okhotsk Seas.

“The flight lasted about 12 hours.”

The Russian Defence Ministry added: “The aircraft of Russia’s Aerospace Force perform all the flights in strict compliance with the international rules of using the airspace.”

Stimulus bets drive Wall Street higher

(Reuters) – Wall Street’s main indexes rose on Tuesday as investors hoped for more stimulus from Washington, with Senate Republicans preparing to vote on a bill to help small businesses hammered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will also talk again on Tuesday, after a 53-minute telephone conversation on Monday “continued to narrow their differences” about the coronavirus aid package, a Pelosi spokesman said on Twitter.

“It’s mostly hopes that we are going to get a stimulus deal going today and we will have money in the pockets of majority of Americans who are suffering most from the pandemic,” said David Trainer, chief executive officer of New Constructs, an investment research firm.

Uncertainty over the fiscal stimulus weighed on Wall Street’s main indexes on Monday and analysts expect market turbulence to increase with only two weeks left until Election Day.

Latest national opinion polls pointed to a victory for Democratic challenger Joe Biden, which would mean a cooling in global trade friction, but higher taxes for corporate America.

Meanwhile, the third-quarter earnings season has gathered momentum. Of the 66 S&P 500 companies that have reported results, 86.4% have topped expectations for earnings, according to Refinitiv IBES data.

Property and casualty insurer Travelers Cos Inc TRV.N gained 3.7% as it beat quarterly profit expectations, while consumer products giant Procter & Gamble Co PG.N advanced 1.2% as it raised its full-year sales and earnings forecast.

At 11:23 a.m. ET the Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI rose 137.42 points, or 0.49%, to 28,332.84 and the .SPX gained 18.13 points, or 0.54%, to 3,445.05. The Nasdaq Composite .IXIC gained 45.05 points, or 0.39%, to 11,523.93.

Netflix Inc NFLX.O dipped 1% ahead of its third-quarter earnings report.

International Business Machines Corp IBM.N edged past estimates for quarterly revenue on Monday, bolstered by higher demand for its cloud services. The company’s shares, however, fell 3.3% after it stayed away from issuing a current-quarter forecast, citing economic uncertainty related to the pandemic.

The U.S. Justice Department and 11 states filed an antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet Inc’s GOOGL.O Google for allegedly breaking the law in using its market power to fend off rivals. Alphabet’s shares were up 0.2%.

Advancing issues outnumbered decliners for a 2.90-to-1 ratio on the NYSE and a 1.36-to-1 ratio on the Nasdaq.

The S&P index recorded 11 new 52-week highs and one new low, while the Nasdaq recorded 47 new highs and 17 new lows.

Health-care costs in Canada dropped after assisted dying became legal

Since Canada’s law on medical assistance in dying came into effect more than four years ago, health-care costs have dropped millions of dollars, according to a Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) report released Tuesday.

The report on assisted dying said since becoming legal on June 17, 2016, Canada’s health-care costs have dropped $86.9 million.

Many studies have shown that health-care costs in the last year of life, and especially the last month, are “disproportionately high,” the PBO report stated. The costs represent between 10 per cent and 20 per cent of total health-care costs despite those patients representing about one per cent of the population.

The report emphasized that the numbers should “in no way be interpreted” as suggesting assisted dying be used to reduce health-care costs.

The PBO report added that access to medically assisted dying will result in a reduction in health-care costs for provinces. But the reduction “represents a negligible portion” of the health-care budges of provinces.

 

The findings come as the federal government has reintroduced legislation, contained in Bill C-7, to amend Canada’s law on medical assistance in dying.

The government has until Dec. 18 to amend the law to comply with a Quebec court ruling last fall, which found it was unconstitutional to allow only those whose natural death is “reasonably foreseeable” to be able to get medical help to end their suffering.

Justice Minister David Lametti introduced a bill in response to that ruling last February but it didn’t get beyond the initial stage of the legislative process before the House of Commons adjourned in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The bill scraps reasonably foreseeable death as a requirement for an assisted death but retains the concept to set out easier eligibility rules for those who are near death and more stringent rules for those who aren’t.

Tuesday’s PBO report also found that expanding access to medical assistance in dying would lead to nearly 1,200 more aided deaths next year.

The budget office estimates the legislation would mean an additional 1,164 medically assisted deaths in Canada in 2021, on top of the 6,465 deaths expected under the current regime.

Provincial health budgets would see a savings of $149 million next year if the numbers hold true, largely from declines in spending on end-of-life care.

Woman trespasser arrested after telling cops her name was ‘My B*tt Just F**ted’

A Florida woman who refused to give her correct name to law enforcement officials may have had more success if she hadn’t had her name tattooed in large letters across her back.

Melinda Lynn Guerrero was arrested on the evening of Wednesday, October 14, when she refused to leave a petrol station in the town of St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida.

Guerrero refused to reveal her name to arresting officers, according to a police report. The police asked her “multiple times,” but “defendant repeatedly said, ‘My name is My Butt Just Farted.”

But the master criminal had reckoned without a couple of giveaway details.

Firstly, her photo and fingerprints are on record in connection with a series of arrests for minor offences over the past few years, mostly related to trespass and open container violations.

Secondly, Guerrero, 33, has the name “Guerrero” tattooed in large letters across her back.

Nevertheless, her reluctance to reveal her identity to legally appointed representatives of Florida’s law enforcement added a second offence to the trespassing charge – providing a false name to law enforcement. Both offences are misdemeanours.

The arresting officers noted that Guerrero may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of her arrest.

The morning after her arrest, Guerrero was released from the county jail on her own recognisance.

Florida is notorious for its wealth of tipsy or otherwise intoxicated residents.

Earlier this month another Florida woman, woman, later identified as Wildwood resident Constance Ann Polk, told a sheriff's deputy that she was in possession of cannabis and asked him if he would like to join her in smoking it, according to a police report.

The deputy asked Ms Polk if she had a card entitling her to buy medical marijuana. She replied that she did not have a medical marijuana card, but was very interested in obtaining one.

Ms Polk was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug equipment. She was booked at the Sumter County Detention Centre on $200 bond.

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will also talk again on Tuesday, after a 53-minute telephone conversation on Monday “continued to narrow their differences” about the coronavirus aid package, a Pelosi spokesman said on Twitter.

“The stimulus package seems to be the major fixation for investors right now — the idea of Republicans and Democrats agreeing on the next payments going forward,” said Rick Meckler, a partner at Cherry Lane Investments in New Vernon, New Jersey.

Asda opens ‘sustainability store’ with cereals in refillable containers and fruit sold loose

Household essentials including teabags and cereals will be sold via refillable containers at a trial sustainability Asda store.

The new outlet – opened in Middleton, Leeds – also features loose and unwrapped produce, paper wrapping, and recycling points throughout.

Asda hopes the store will encourage people to reduce, reuse and recycle – saving an estimated one million pieces of plastic from being used each year.

Big brands are on board with the initiative, with products from PG Tips, Kellogg’s, Radox and Persil among those that shoppers will be able to take home in their own refillable containers to cut down on waste.

Heinz products, alongside Asda’s own brand canned products, will be sold without outer plastic packaging.

There are also 53 fresh produce items which are being sold loose, as well as flowers wrapped in paper.

Recycling points for shoppers will also be available for items that are more difficult to recycle, such as crisp packets, plastic toys, cosmetics packaging, and toothpaste tubes.

This trial store will also feature a community zone, allowing for partnerships with charities.

The first will be a three-month collaboration with the Salvation Army, featuring a “drop and shop” outlet for customers to donate clothing and unwanted items.

The supermarket has also launched Greener at Asda Price, a promise ensuring that unwrapped and loose fruit and vegetables will not cost more than packaged versions across all of its stores.

Roger Burnley, the chief executive of Asda, said: “Today marks an important milestone in our journey as we tackle plastic pollution and help our customers to reduce, reuse and recycle.

“We have always known that we couldn’t go on this journey alone, so it is fantastic to work in tandem with more than 20 of our partners and suppliers who have answered the call to test innovative sustainable solutions with us.”

Initiatives within the new store that prove successful could be rolled out across more Asda sites in 2021.

The company, which was purchased from Walmart earlier this month in a £6.8bn deal, has pledged to produce zero carbon emissions by 2040 and has also committed to reducing waste by 50%.

Cannabis CBD oil could help repair lungs battered by coronavirus, study claims

A cannabis compound can help reduce lung damage caused by coronavirus, research suggests.

Scientists say CBD boosts levels of a natural peptide – small chains of amino acids – called apelin, which can bring down inflammation.

They claim it means cannabidiol, or CBD – an ingredient in cannabis – appears to reduce a severe immune response called a "cytokine storm".

This damages the lungs of Covid-19 patients by causing the body to start to attack its own cells and tissues, instead of just fighting off the virus.

Researchers from the Dental College of Georgia in the US showed blood levels of apelin increase 20 times when patients were given CBD, MirrorOnline reports.

Dr Jack Yu, of the Medical College of Georgia, said: “CBD almost brought it back to a normal level.”

Their findings were published in the Journal of Celluar and Molecular Medicine.

The team previously found CBD could improve oxygen levels and reduce lung inflammation in patients with the disease.

Earlier research has also linked a compound in cannabis to potentially helping people suffering from the disease.

University of South Carolina scientists said tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the main active compounds in cannabis, could help.

They claimed it could reduce inflammation in the lungs, known as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

The team tested the effects of THC on mice with the syndrome.

In 100% of cases, the THC stopped the inflammation in the lungs by slowing the release of cytokine proteins.

The researchers wrote a “significant proportion” of Covid-19 patients come down with sepsis and ARDS “accompanied by cytokine storm”.

They added: “Because currently there is no effective treatment against ARDS, a significant percentage of such Covid-19 patients die from severe damage to the lungs and other organs, caused by cytokine storm.”
