Matt Howard, general partner at Norwest Venture Partners, will join Third Wave’s board of directors.

Sanders, M. – Phi (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Miles Sanders, RB, Philadelphia Eagles (6/23) Advice: Miles Sanders was expected to be a breakout candidate in 2020, but he failed to deliver in his sophomore campaign. Heading into Year 3, he could face some competition for touches, but he’s still worth buying back into as a No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues. Sanders should be selected in Round 2 or 3 in all formats. Injuries to Sanders and the offensive line hurt his production in 2020 and, instead of seeing his Fantasy points per game rise from 13.6 in 2019, he slipped to 13.4 last year. But he still averaged 5.3 yards per carry. And, more importantly, he averaged 18.3 PPR points per game in three starts with Jalen Hurts. The Eagles added plenty of bodies this offseason to compete for touches with Sanders (including Jordan Howard and Kerryon Johnson, plus Boston Scott is still there), but most of them profile as backups, although the addition of rookie Kenneth Gainwell could impact Sanders in the passing game. Still, there’s reason for optimism about Sanders this year. He might have failed as a breakout in 2020, but he can easily rebound this year. (

Lindsey Graham: Calls for Trump ally to resign over Georgia phone call

Pressure has mounted on Senator Graham after an official corroborated the call in which he asked the state’s secretary of state about the possibility of throwing out legal ballots.

Trump Demands Vaccine Credit for Virus He Spent Almost a Year Denying

Day 15 of #Squattergate is upon us, Trump is still hunkered down in the White House & firing everybody in his path, the thinktank in Trumpland is empty as his White House staff peddles nonsense, Trump is reportedly worried that President-Elect Joe Biden will get all the credit for the COVID vaccine, a supermarket chain’s poor choice of words in an ad, and Jimmy interviews Mike Tyson about his big return to boxing.

Ekeler, A. – LAC (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers (6/23) Advice: Austin Ekeler’s reception-heavy upside carries him as a first-round value in PPR formats, but not necessarily in non-PPR. He followed up his breakout 2019 season with a modest 2020 thanks in part to a hamstring injury that cost him six starts. Still, the Chargers rusher averaged 93.3 total yards per game, just 3.6 yards off his 2019 average. He also averaged 5.4 receptions per game, 0.4 grabs off what he did a year prior. Ekeler has comfortably moved into the lead role, but he still has work to do when it comes to getting carries near the goal line (one last year, six the year before) and heavy workloads (15-plus touches in just 17 of his past 40 games). Maybe that puts Ekeler toward the beginning of Round 2 in non- and half-PPR leagues, but the catches he’ll get from game to game keep him in play as a top-10 overall choice in full PPR. (

Anti-Vax Leader Pushes Drinking Urine for COVID, Guillermo’s Deer Antler Spray & Anti-Vax Barbie!

There was some early-season drama on the new season of “The Bachelor,” the Golden Globes were not televised this year and they had to announce winners on Twitter, there is a shortage of at-home COVID-19 tests available, anti-vaxhole Christopher Key is touting the benefits of drinking your own urine and after doing some research we discovered that our very own Guillermo has endorsed one of his crazy products, and the folks at Mattel made a mint over Christmas with a twist on America’s all-time favorite doll.

Gordon III, M. – Den (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Melvin Gordon, RB, Denver Broncos (6/23) Advice: Even though Melvin Gordon has scored at least nine touchdowns and totaled at least 75 yards per game in each of his past five seasons, he figures to be an unpopular Fantasy pickup. That’s because the Broncos drafted fresh young rookie Javonte Williams to work in tandem with Gordon. However, many people feel Williams will overtake Gordon at some point this season, making the 28-year-old veteran useless for Fantasy purposes. Here’s the reality: The Broncos prefer a multi-back approach, so Gordon will see work so long as he’s healthy and effective, even if it’s on fewer touches. And that’s the issue: Gordon has hit 15-plus PPR in just 11 of 29 games over the past two seasons, so if he’s seeing fewer touches with Williams in the fold, then the Fantasy frustrations will only grow. You might want to root for someone else to take Gordon by the end of Round 4 before you’re stuck considering him in Round 5 or 6. If the idea of him in your lineup makes your gag reflex kick into overdrive, then strongly consider taking other rushers earlier on Draft Day. (

Trump Decries “Cancel Culture,” Calls On Republicans to Boycott More Companies

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.
