President Donald Trump continues to claim — without any evidence — there was massive voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election.
You want to know a sure-fire way to win your Fantasy league? Draft only players who are about to have career years. Yep, it’s that easy.
OK, easier said than done. But that’s what it takes: Identifying players right before they have that one year where everything comes together perfectly. Sometimes, it never happens; some players are just steady as they come every year. But most players have that one season that stands above the rest of their career as their pinnacle, and they tend to lead countless players to Fantasy championships when it happens.
But what goes up must fall, as the man said, and one sure-fire way to put yourself in a hole on Draft Day is to go too aggressively after last year’s career-best seasons. You never want to pay a premium for last year’s production, after all. Sometimes, of course, a career year is just a career year so far, and figuring out the difference is one of the keys to succeeding in this game.

Former President Donald Trump said “cancel culture” has run amok, so Republicans better start making their own cancelations. Trump issued a bitter message Saturday in which he stoked divisions over Georgia’s restrictive new voting law. It came a day after he urged a boycott of “woke companies,” including Major League Baseball for moving its All-Star Game out of Georgia. He later expanded the list of companies that he says supporters should boycott for opposing Georgia’s voting restrictions.
Sen. Lindsey O. Graham’s relationship with former president Donald Trump has contained multitudes. He was arguably Trump’s biggest critic on the 2016 debate stage, saying that nominating Trump would deservedly destroy the party, but he later became one of Trump’s biggest Senate allies. All the while, he seemed to want to make clear that this was a marriage of convenience rather than true conviction — the price to pay for getting things done.
On Sunday, though, Graham (R-S.C.) described the relationship between Trump and the GOP in starker terms: as something akin to a hostage situation.
Police unions aren’t usually bashful about defending officers, but they’ve been conspicuously subdued in discussing the January 6 attacks.
In Chicago, the local FOP president defended the rioters who stormed the Capitol. “You’re not going to convince me that that many people voted for Joe Biden,” he said. “Never for the rest of my life will you ever convince me of that. But, again, it still comes down to proof.” He later apologized.
As of right now, the Bengals own the No. 5 selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, set to kick off April 29th in Cleveland, Ohio. That is about the only thing we know for certain. But even that is subject to change.
The Bengals could decide to trade down in the draft in order to pick up another early-round selection and help shore up some of the gaps that remain from another year of free-agent frenzy that saw the defense almost completely re-tooled.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is facing backlash from veterans groups and former service members after he claimed that new promotional videos are pushing a “woke, emasculated military.”
Cruz made the remark on Twitter on Thursday, sharing a video displaying an apparent Russian military advertisement showing images of men with shaved heads doing push-ups and jumping out of a plane.
The video then cuts to an animated story of U.S. Army Cpl. Emma Malonelord discussing her mothers’ wedding, marching for LGBTQ rights and joining the military.

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot held its first hearing on Tuesday, with emotional testimony from four law enforcement officers who defended the building that day. The officers spoke — at times angrily — about the physical and psychological injuries they sustained and gave a rare, first-hand look at the types of attacks they and their fellow officers suffered.
The officers are among the few who have told their stories in the press, and Tuesday marked the first time they appeared together to give official testimony.
Many highly respected legal scholars have called into question Donald Trump’s attacks on the FBI, but should damaging the reputation of American institutions reach criminal liability?
2021 fantasy player outlook for Cam Newton, QB, New England Patriots (6/23) Advice: Cam Newton is back with the Patriots this season, and hopefully Year 2 goes better than Year 1. He should be considered a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback in all leagues, and he’s worth drafting with a mid-round pick in two-quarterback and Superflex formats. In one-quarterback leagues, Newton is only worth a late-round flier in deeper formats. The biggest thing to monitor with Newton is if he can hold off rookie Mac Jones for the starting job, but all indications are Newton will open the season as the starter. Newton replaced Tom Brady in New England last year and started the season strong with consecutive games of at least 25 Fantasy points, but things went downhill from there, including a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He only had four more games with at least 20 Fantasy points on the season, and he passed for just eight touchdowns. The good news was his rushing prowess with 592 yards and 12 touchdowns, and the Patriots added improved weapons this offseason with Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne. Julian Edelman is gone, but Newton should improve this season with better talent at receiver, as well as an upgraded offensive line. He could emerge as a waiver-wire addition in all leagues by the end of the year — assuming he stays ahead of Jones on the depth chart. (CBSSports.com)
2021 fantasy player outlook for Leonard Fournette, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6/23) Advice: Leonard Fournette earned the nickname “Playoff Lenny” by racking up 300 rushing yards (4.69 ypc) and 148 receiving yards with four total TDs. In just four games, Fournette touched the ball 82 times (with 21 targets). That’s a modern Fantasy workhorse role right there. Of course, that’s not how Fournette was used during the regular season, Ronald Jones is back and 2020 draft pick Ke’Shawn Vaughn has one more offseason (hopefully this time not spent on the COVID-19 list) to work his way into the mix. As a mid-sixth round pick, Fournette offers situation-based Fantasy upside but his value is tenuous and dependent on him keeping the passing down role and getting red zone opportunities. If offseason acquisition Gio Bernard takes over the passing down role full time, Fournette’s ceiling is capped. (CBSSports.com)

The officer, 43-year-old Gunther Hashida, was found dead at his home last Thursday, according to a spokeswoman for Washington police, who confirmed Hashida’s manner of death.
The parents of 54 migrant children have been found after being separated at the border under former President Trump’s administration, court records reveal.
Lawyers from the Department of Justice and the American Civil Liberties Union said in a court filing on Wednesday that it still has to locate the families of 391 children, down from the 445 it previously reported in April.
The parents of 277 of the remaining children are believed to have been removed from the U.S. after they were separated from their children, the lawyers wrote. The parents of another 100 children are believed to be in the U.S. and are being searched for.

A viral tale on social media falsely claims that a campaign official for President-elect Joe Biden was arrested in an illegal ballot-harvesting scheme in Texas. He has not been charged or arrested.

Donald Trump’s empire has been hit hard by coronavirus closures, with revenue from his Washington and Las Vegas hotels down by more than half.
In his last financial disclosure form as president, Trump detailed the damage the pandemic has wrought, at a time when many tourism businesses are suffering from a lack of travelers. As president, the real-estate magnate resisted policies to slow the pandemic through mask-wearing, and insisted it remained safe for people to travel domestically.
A photo of two people, one of whom is in blackface, has been circulating online for years with the unfounded claim that it shows Bill and Hillary Clinton. A Twitter user said he posted the photo in 2015, even though he had no evidence it was the Clintons, to “stir interest.”
