Dynasty Sleepers: Quarterbacks (2021 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty sleeper quarterbacks are a different breed. At running back, we can tell stories of young backs climbing to the top of a depth chart, like James Robinson. At wide receiver, we have a rich history of physically gifted players overcoming rocky college journeys to ascend to the top of the sport, like Tyreek Hill.

In contrast, quarterbacks almost always fall in line with draft capital — 23 of the top 30 dynasty signal-callers were once first-round picks. The ones who have broken through are legends at this point. Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, and Kirk Cousins have all dominated the headlines for the last two decades. Identifying a sleeper quarterback carries the most reward in Superflex scoring, as you can secure a decades-long lineup piece for minimal capital. It’s time to slap on a blindfold and throw some darts.

Three-Round 2021 NFL Mock Draft: NFC West

The San Francisco 49ers are not that far removed from a place in the Super Bowl, so Niners fans will soon be looking at the quarterback John Lynch picks at No. 3 in the 2021 NFL Draft as the savior who can get them back to the pinnacle of the sport.

San Francisco does get a quarterback in this three-round NFC West mock draft, but it’s not the quarterback many will expect. Elsewhere in the division, the Seattle Seahawks came out on top last season but have almost no draft capital to get younger and better for 2021, while the Los Angeles Rams go another season without a first-round pick but do have a few middle-round picks to work with. Meanwhile, the Arizona Cardinals continue to believe in their tremendous upside but are yet to put it all together on the field in the Kliff Kingsbury/Kyler Murray era.

Jones Jr., M. – Jax (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Marvin Jones, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars (6/23) Advice: Jones signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in the offseason and he remains a boom-or-bust No. 3 receiver who is best drafted as a No. 4 unless you’re playing in a Best Ball league. Jones’ booms are remarkable; he scored 38 PPR points in Week 17 last year and topped 25 points in three other games. And who could forget his four-score outburst in 2019? But Jones has also been held below 50 yards in more than half of the games he’s played the past two seasons. Jones is also at the age where we could start to see decline, so he has very little value in Dynasty. (CBSSports.com)

Timeline of National Guard Deployment to Capitol

On the day of the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, the first National Guard members arrived to assist at about 5:40 p.m. By then, most of the violence had subsided.

In the critical minutes before rioters had breached the Capitol building around 2 p.m., the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police force and the mayor of Washington, D.C., put out urgent requests for guard backup. But it took more than an hour to get formal approval for their deployment, and then nearly three more hours for the first guard reinforcements to arrive.

The D.C. National Guard reports to the president.

In a recorded video the following day, President Donald Trump claimed that he “immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders.” But Trump’s claim that he acted quickly is contradicted by news reports citing unnamed sources who say the president initially resisted efforts to bring in the National Guard at the outset of the Capitol riot.

Thielen, A. – Min (WR)

Adam Thielen 2021 Outlook: Passing The Torch Yet Still Scoring Touchdowns (5/14) Advice: Over the final month of 2020, Thielen averaged just 51 receiving yards per game, while Jefferson averaged 90 receiving yards per game. Thielen is also turning 31 before Week 1, so there’s always a risk he could begin to lose a step. Nevertheless, Thielen is a top-15 WR who should be drafted within the first 50-60 picks since he could have 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns this year, but do not be surprised if his fantasy value drops and Jefferson’s soars, either.

Steven Spielberg’s Daughter Destry Responds to Claims of Nepotism After Ben Stiller Sparks Debate

Steven Spielberg’s daughter, Destry Spielberg, is addressing claims of nepotism when it comes to her upcoming short film, The Rightway.

Earlier this week, Deadline reported that actor Hopper Penn, who is the son of Sean Penn, had joined the cast of the film, which is set to be directed by Destry, 24. The movie is also written by Stephen King’s son Owen King and stars Brian d’Arcy James, whose uncle is the late Blade Runner producer Brian Kelly.
“People can argue nepotism, but I know deep down that I worked hard to get where I am and it wasn’t easy,” Destry Spielberg said.

Sanders, E. – Buf (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Buffalo Bills (6/23) Advice: After an impressive but short stint with the 49ers in 2019, Emmanuel Sanders joined the Saints, but he was unable to find his footing in New Orleans. That’s not all that uncommon for WRs coming over to the Saints during the Drew Brees era and dealing with a timing-based passing system. Josh Allen and the Bills should be a much better fit for Sanders’ skill set in 2021 — specifically on improvised plays off schedule and in the deep passing game. He won’t cost much in drafts due to the competition around him and that makes Sanders a priority flier in what should be one of the NFL’s best passing attacks. (CBSSports.com)

Bad week in Trumpland signals hope for American democracy

The last five years’ deluge of disinformation and discord make it easy to lose faith in democracy, something never helpful to preserving it. Just when many lamented the Republican pilgrimages to Mar-a-Lago as signs of Trump’s iron-fisted hold on his party, his control visibly faltered last week. Earlier polling had already shown a slip.

Still, Trump’s bad week does not mean that it’s time for foes of authoritarianism to rejoice or for anyone to assume that American democracy is out of danger.
