Some QAnon followers lose hope after Inauguration

Some QAnon conspiracy theorists, in public and private internet forums and chat rooms, were despondent Wednesday as their prophecy of an Inauguration Day coup to keep Donald Trump in power failed again as President Joe Biden was sworn into office.

The situation left some QAnon adherents with no choice but to write off the conspiracy theory entirely, though others continued to maintain that it was still developing.

QAnon supporters believed Wednesday’s inauguration was an elaborate trap set by the former president, wherein Democrats would be rounded up and executed while Trump retained power. Various other doomsdays theorized by the QAnon community have also come and gone without incident.

GOP to Herschel Walker: Consider staying on the bench

Republicans loved seeing Herschel Walker score touchdown after touchdown. They doubt he can carry them to the Senate majority.

Walker is a former NFL star and Donald Trump’s favorite to take on Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock in the Georgia Senate race next fall. But as years-old allegations about Walker’s marriage and business dealings weigh on his potential bid, Senate Republicans are raising concerns about his past in a state widely viewed as their best pickup opportunity next year.

Drake, K. – LV (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Kenyan Drake, RB, Las Vegas Raiders (6/23) Advice: Don’t rule out drafting Kenyan Drake if you can pluck him at a very good value. How will he fit in behind Josh Jacobs in Las Vegas? Well, Drake was actually more effective in goal-to-go carries with the Cardinals (8 of 19) than Jacobs was last year (5 of 16). The Raiders have also made mention of Drake’s receiving experience — he caught 50-plus passes in 2018 and 2019 while Jacobs averaged 1.9 catches per game in his time with the Raiders. Those could be two of several specialty roles Drake gets with Las Vegas, giving him some mild Fantasy potential. It won’t result in as many touches as he had with Arizona (15.9 carries per game in 2020) unless Jacobs gets hurt or benched for being ineffective, which would then open up Drake to more work. Ultimately, expect no more than 10 touches per game from Drake in a given week, but some of those touches could be catches and touchdowns. Round 8 or 9 feels like the right time to draft Drake as either a top-notch backup or as a starter on a Zero-RB roster. (CBSSports.com)

Singletary, D. – Buf (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills (6/23) Advice: Devin Singletary will be part of a crowded backfield in Buffalo this season with Zack Moss and Matt Breida, and Singletary should be considered just a reserve Fantasy option in most leagues. He is only worth drafting with a mid-round pick at best in most formats. Training camp will likely determine if Singletary starts, but the Bills will rely on all three running backs when healthy. In ranking Buffalo’s backfield, plan on drafting Moss first, then Singletary and then Breida. But this isn’t the ideal situation for these guys since Buffalo is a high-volume passing attack with a quarterback in Josh Allen who also uses his legs. Singletary did excel in two of three games that Moss missed in 2020 due to injury, scoring at least 16 PPR points in those outings, but he also had 10 games with nine PPR points or less for the year. Barring an injury to Moss and/or Breida, it will be tough to trust Singletary as a starting Fantasy option in most leagues this year. (CBSSports.com)

Rankings – Top Rookie Wide Receivers of 2021 [Pre-Draft]

We’re still a few weeks away from full-on NFL Draft season, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t start thinking about our dynasty fantasy football teams with NFL free agency kicking off in less than a month.

I broke down my top-five list at the wide receiver position in January, but it’s time to dig a little deeper. For those looking to go beyond even what we’ll cover here, PFF’s 2021 NFL Draft Guide has you covered — the current iteration breaks down the top 200 college prospects, and it will be updated throughout the offseason leading up to the NFL Draft in April.

For now, let’s dig into the top 15 wide receivers for dynasty fantasy football leagues in 2021. These rankings will certainly be affected by players’ landing spots, but it’s a place to start for those who might be trading rookie draft picks in the dynasty offseason.

The Mad Dad Fighting Critical Race Theory Is Actually a GOP Strategist

It might not be a coincidence that Loudoun County, Virginia, has become the epicenter of the debate over “critical race theory” in schools: One of the parents leading the fight isn’t just some mad dad—he’s a top national Republican operative. And Virginia just happens to be hosting 2021’s most important election.

Cohen, T. – Chi (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears (6/23) Advice: Cohen missed most of 2020 with a torn ACL and David Montgomery had a major breakout. That makes Cohen’s role in 2021 more mysterious than it was heading into last season. For that reason, Cohen should be treated as a low-end No. 3 running back in PPR worth a pick no sooner than Round 8. In non-PPR he’s a flier in the double-digit rounds. (CBSSports.com)

How To Smoke A Cigar At Davidoff London

Kirby Allison and Eddie Sahakian of Davidoff Cigars talk about how to smoke a cigar. Smoking a cigar is an experience to be enjoyed. Knowing how to cut, light and work with any issues in the smoking experience are great skills to get the most enjoyment out of cigars.

Wentz, C. – Ind (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Carson Wentz, QB, Indianapolis Colts (6/23) Advice: Carson Wentz gets a fresh start this season after being traded to the Colts. Hopefully, Wentz can rebound and become a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback again in all leagues. He’s worth drafting with a late-round pick in deep one-quarterback leagues and a mid-round selection in two-quarterback and Superflex formats. Wentz should benefit with a solid offensive line in Indianapolis, and hopefully guys like T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman and Parris Campbell can help Wentz thrive. He’s replacing Philip Rivers, who last year passed for 4,169 yards, 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Wentz averaged just 18.3 Fantasy points per game last year, but he does have three seasons on his resume with at least 20.6 Fantasy points per game in his career. Let’s hope being reunited with Frank Reich can help Wentz get back to that level again. (CBSSports.com)

The Trump wing just keeps sinking deeper into conspiracy theories

Did you know that Joe Biden is probably going to resign as president sometime in the next month? Maybe, specifically, on August 13? While that’s totally ridiculous — Biden isn’t resigning and, in fact, all signs point to him running for a second term in 2024 — talk of Biden resigning has taken off among some of former President Donald Trump’s most prominent supporters of late.

Here’s MyPillow founder Mike Lindell in an interview Monday with none other than Steve Bannon:
