Khalil Herbert Highlights

Virginia Tech RB Khalil Herbert
Senior 5’9 212 lbs

In 11 games in 2020, Herbert logged 165 touches from scrimmage, tallying 1,362 yards with nine touchdowns. Herbert is a disciplined runner that plays within himself, has good vision, takes excellent angles, has good contact balance, and is a smooth operator.

Dutch research funding agency, paralyzed by ransomware attack, refuses to pay up

Hackers published a batch of internal documents from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) on the dark web yesterday, after the agency refused to pay up in a ransomware attack. The attack, which began on 8 February, has completely knocked out the agency’s grant application and review process and cut off NWO’s communication with applicants, grantees, and universities.

I’m Racist. And So Are You.

Hate crimes are the highest they’ve been in 20 years. While minorities and liberals claim racism is a problem, white power groups and the GOP are calling the minorities the real racists. Spoiler alert — everybody is racist.

Trump spends post-presidency allowance on high priced aides as he builds out political machine

Former President Donald Trump has spent his first five months away from Washington surrounded by a generously paid group of staffers, at least one of whom received a $32,000 raise over their White House salary, according to Freedom of Information Act records obtained by CNN.

As of May 12, the compensation for aides kept on by Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence, who received about 20% of the $2.6 million sum available to both men in accordance with the Presidential Transaction Act, totaled $1.26 million. The lump sum for transition activities, which is managed by the General Services Administration during a former president’s first six months out of office, is typically applied toward rent for a suitable office space, staff salaries and benefits, and printing and postage expenses.


OAN Report Features Baseless Assertion of Election Fraud by Algorithm

One America News Network recently spotlighted one man’s analysis that wrongly suggests precinct-level voting data in Georgia proved a computer algorithm was used to swing the election to President Joe Biden. A hand tally of paper ballots confirmed the election outcome, one of many indications the claim is false.

Fantasy Football: Can Clyde Edwards-Helaire still be Andy Reid’s next great RB?

The Chiefs met just about every 2020 preseason expectation laid out for them besides their obvious trip up against the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. Regular season record of 14-2? That’ll work. Two relatively easy AFC playoff wins? Check. First-team All Pro campaigns for Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill to go along with another MVP-worthy season from Patrick Mahomes? You bet.

For everyone other than the most devout Sammy Watkins and Mecole Hardman truthers, the only real “disappointment” for the 2020 Chiefs was the production of first-round RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire. This isn’t to suggest that CEH was bad: 1,100 total yards from scrimmage and five trips to the end zone in 13 games is good. However, the man boasted an average draft position as the PPR RB5 in fantasy land by the time last season eventually came around.

Drafting Ja’Marr Chase Could Ruin Your Dynasty Team (2021 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty managers always love the shiny new toys that enter the game each year. We all look forward to our rookie drafts and thoroughly enjoy the rookie pick trade talks, ongoing positional rankings debate, and even the eventual landing spot discussions after the NFL draft. But oftentimes, dynasty managers are blinded by this new shine and can miss the bigger picture. I think this is already happening with new Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase.

Chase’s dynasty startup 1QB ADP is 21st overall. He is going as the WR8 off the board ahead of guys like Calvin Ridley (WR – ATL), DeAndre Hopkins, (WR – ARI), and Michael Thomas (WR – NO), all of whom are perennial fantasy studs. In SuperFlex startups, he’s going a little later at pick 54 and as WR12, ahead of guys like Terry McLaurin (WR – WAS), Chris Godwin (WR – TB), and Allen Robinson (WR – CHI). In both cases, he’s being drafted as a WR1 in 12-team leagues. That’s way too early.

Rondale Moore Highlights

Purdue WR Rondale Moore
Sophomore 5’9 180 lbs

Rondale Moore took the world by storm in his college debut breaking the school’s all purpose yards record. After that impressive performance, he’s continued to show that it wasn’t all hype. Moore is one of the fastest, quickest & shiftiest players in the country. He’s a legit playmaker who people view as the next Tavon Austin, Reggie Bush, DeAnthony Thomas or Tyreek Hill, which is high praise for a college football player. Injuries prevented the country from watching this electric playmaker play a lot in 2019, so many people have forgotten about him. He opted out of the season then opted back in, but never really got back on track. His draft stock is one that will be fun to watch closely. He has the talent & play making ability of a 1st rounder, but he’s really only had one year of film of him being healthy. He will be a complete steal if he falls past the 2nd round.

Brevin Jordan Highlights

Miami TE Brevin Jordan
6’3 245 lbs

Coming out of Bishop Gorman, Miami TE Brevin Jordan was one of the highest rated players at his position & so far he’s lived up to the hype. He may not score many touchdowns, but he was a top target whenever a play was needed. The Hurricanes have not had consistent QB play during his first 2 seasons, which has played a role as to why his stats aren’t as impressive as one would think when watching him play. Now that D’Eriq King has transferred to The U, Jordan & the rest of the Miami offense are expected to take a big step forward next season.

Robinson, R. – Jax (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for James Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars (6/23) Advice: Robinson quickly emerged as a must-start Fantasy running back in 2020, but that probably won’t be the case in 2021 after the Jaguars invested a first-round pick in Clemson’s Travis Etienne. Robinson still figures to open the season as the No. 1 RB for the Jaguars, but he definitely won’t be dominating the work like he did as a rookie, with Urban Meyer already saying he views Etienne as the third-round back. Robinson can still have value if he gets 200 carries and, say, 40 targets, but even that is no guarantee. Ideally, you would see something like the Mark Ingram/Alvin Kamara backfield split from Kamara’s rookie season where both were must-start players, but this Jaguars offense is unlikely to be as valuable as that Saints backfield was. Robinson was a must-start back in 2020, so this is a disappointing outcome, and it probably moves Robinson into the RB3 discussion on Draft Day. If you can get him in the fifth round or later, he can be a valuable piece, but he’s unlikely to be a difference maker now. (CBSSports.com)

Chubb, N. – Cle (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns (6/23) Advice: If you’re playing in a league where catches don’t count, Nick Chubb is a surefire first-round pick and could be selected as high as No. 5 overall. But the fact that he has 27 receptions in 20 career games with Kareem Hunt does limit Chubb’s PPR upside. He would need a season like Derrick Henry’s to justify a first-round pick in that format. Chubb has Henry’s incredible efficiency (5.2 career YPC) and he scores nearly as often, but the volume seems unlikely as long as Hunt is on the roster. Last year, Henry averaged 23.6 carries per game; Chubb has two games in his career (and zero in 2020) with that many rush attempts. (CBSSports.com)

Russian Intelligence Cultivated Donald Trump For Decades, Says Former KGB Agent

The KGB Soviet spy agency and later Russian intelligence cultivated Donald Trump as an “asset” for 40 years, a former spy told The Guardian in a bombshell interview. And the Kremlin was delighted with the results, said former KGB major Yuri Shvets.

The strategy was typical: Focus on reasonably good prospects and hope one of the wooed Americans rises to a position of power or access that can be beneficial, said Shvets, who now lives in Virginia.

“People were recruited when they were just students and then they rose to important positions; something like that was happening with Trump,” explained Shvets, who worked as a KGB major in the 1980s in the U.S. with a cover job as a Washington correspondent for the Russian news agency Tass.
