‘A complete rip-off’: Campaign-finance experts puzzled and stunned by Trump camp’s reported ‘money-bomb’ ploy

Older donors who gave a few hundred dollars to former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign said they were shocked to see thousands drained from their accounts. Refund requests jumped in the final months of the campaign. The ensuing surges in credit-card-fraud claims associated with Trump got on the radar of the US’s biggest banks.

That’s all according to a New York Times investigation published Saturday that detailed a recurring-donation scheme it said was referred to as “the money bomb,” which the Trump campaign used to pad its coffers in the final months of the campaign through the GOP fundraising platform WinRed.

‘AQUAMAN 2’ PETITION AGAINST AMBER HEARD TOPS 1.6 MILLION SIGNATURES

Being a wealthy movie star protects famous folks in many ways but they pay a price in having embarrassing personal business exposed. Johnny Depp and ex Amber Heard could write a book on just how bad that gets at this point–both have likely lost potential work, Depp has left a major production altogether, and now more than 1.5 million people have signed a petition calling for Heard to drop out of Aquaman 2.

‘It’s turned crazy’: Inside the scramble for Trump pardons

President Donald Trump may not be willing to accept his term is ending, but as the clock ticks down on his time in office, hundreds of his allies — including some of his closest business associates and many high-profile criminals — are ramping up their efforts to squeeze out the final ounces of his presidential power.

‘Tirades of profanity’: Axios reporter describes Trump meeting

Axios reporter Jonathan Swan describes a December 18 meeting between President Donald Trump, White House officials and conspiracy theorists that ended in a profanity-laced shouting match. Swan, who has covered Donald Trump’s presidency for years, called it one of the most dark and demented meetings of the administration.

‘Patrick Mahomes,’ the real GOAT, reunited with family in Harvey County

The owner of “Patrick Mahomes,” a stray GOAT, fund Thursday evening has been reunited with its family.

In response to a post on the Harvey County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page, the goat’s owner wrote: “The suspect has been captured but he’s doing fine so far no injuries but he’s fine I’m working on his pen right now.”

‘Slow-motion insurrection’: How GOP seizes election power

In the weeks leading up to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, a handful of Americans — well-known politicians, obscure local bureaucrats — stood up to block then-President Donald Trump’s unprecedented attempt to overturn a free and fair vote of the American people.

‘The perfect target’: Russia cultivated Trump as asset for 40 years – ex-KGB spy

Donald Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over 40 years and proved so willing to parrot anti-western propaganda that there were celebrations in Moscow, a former KGB spy has told the Guardian.

Yuri Shvets, posted to Washington by the Soviet Union in the 1980s, compares the former US president to “the Cambridge five”, the British spy ring that passed secrets to Moscow during the second world war and early cold war.

Now 67, Shvets is a key source for American Kompromat, a new book by journalist Craig Unger, whose previous works include House of Trump, House of Putin. The book also explores the former president’s relationship with the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

‘This is how I’m going to die’: Officers describe horrors of Jan. 6 riot

Four police officers who defended the Capitol from a Jan. 6 riot by Donald Trump supporters spoke out Tuesday during the first hearing of the select committee investigating the attack, sharing harrowing details of their physical and mental trauma.

As the riot fades from public memory amid a new wave of Republican revisionism, select panel members aimed to cast the hearing — the first time Congress has heard publicly from law enforcement on the front lines of the response to Jan. 6 — as a vivid reminder of what happened.

2021 Fantasy Football App Guide: Which FF Platform Is The Best?

Fantasy Football is the most popular fantasy draft sport in the United States. Every season, according to Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association, more than 48 million people play the game. These devotees are largely interested in sports betting, in 2018, according to FSGA, “research found that 79% of fantasy players said there’s at least a good possibility they’d bet on sports if and when a bill is passed to legalize it in their state.”

How popular is Fantasy Football? Of the 60 million who participate in fantasy sports in the U.S. and Canada, 79 percent (or four out of five) play fantasy football. According to ESPN, in 2019, the last year with public data, there were more than 11 million unique registered users on the ESPN Fantasy App (not all were football players, but most were).

2021 Fantasy Football RB Sleepers: Potential running back breakouts, draft steals

There’s no hotter commodity in a fantasy football draft than a running back sleeper. Everyone wants to round out their picks with two or three steals (often rookies) who will emerge at some point this year and take over. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of breakout candidates considering how common injuries are at this position. When you add in the potential for COVID-related absences again in 2021, you can expect a good chunk of the league to start multiple RBs at various points this season. Any backup can have value if they get 15-plus touches per game, so you need to know more than just the top-75 RB rankings your backs’ immediate handcuffs — you damn near need to know every teams’ entire depth chart.

2021 First-Round NFL Mock Draft: Updated Picks After Pro Days

We’re down to about a fortnight now.

It feels as though it was just yesterday when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were whipping the Vince Lombardi Trophy around above the deep waters of the Hillsborough River, but that’s ancient history in terms of the NFL offseason, and free agency is already a memory.

We’re into the final countdown for the 2021 draft. And with basically the entire predraft process complete, we’re able to mock the draft with an increasingly clear picture.

Here’s our latest stab at it.

2021 NFL Mock Draft Monday: Three-round mock draft with first-round trades

With the number of prospects that returned to school this year, this draft is even more crucial than previous years. Teams will have to hit on prospects early and find talent in the later rounds, where options will be even slimmer. Let’s dive into the first three rounds of the NFL Draft, with trades in the first round that will affect other rounds as well.

2021 NFL Mock Draft v3.1

Shoutout to the 49ers for setting us up for a wild month of mock drafts!

Here’s my 3rd 2021 NFL Mock Draft… Let me know what you think!

2021 NFL Mock Draft: Denver Broncos trade up for QB Trey Lance, Florida TE Kyle Pitts lands with the Miami Dolphins at No. 6

The trades involving San Francisco, Miami and Philadelphia have reshaped the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. It now seems all but a foregone conclusion that quarterbacks will come off the board with the first three picks in the draft, potentially forcing other QB-needy teams to move up to secure one of the top-five quarterbacks before the run ends. There’s a real chance that this run ends inside the top 10 picks, as it does in my second attempt at a 2021 mock draft.

2021 NFL Mock Draft: QB Justin Fields lands with the Jets at No. 2 overall, Falcons select Florida TE Kyle Pitts at No. 4

Predicting the NFL draft is a fruitless yet satisfying endeavor. The draft never plays out how anyone hopes or dreams, but playing general manager for all 32 NFL teams creates a unique take on the proceedings. We see top prospects fall unexpectedly in almost every draft; we also see players who get picked way too high. It’s a fun exercise to try to predict every pick.

For this mock draft, I’ve tried to fill an immediate and specific need for the team in question, and that’s what the “key change” function is for. Every team in the league was bad in a certain area last season, and here’s how that changes with the new addition in this draft.

2021 NFL Mock Draft: The Steelers take an inside linebacker with their top pick

The 2021 NFL draft is now only 17 days away. With free agency winding down and all eyes on the upcoming NFL draft, the Steelers will have a lot of different draft scenarios which could shake out before making their first draft selection. Because the NFL combine will not be held, pro days are the best option to get player information. With the majority of these pro days concluded, it’s still difficult to gauge which players will move up draft boards while others fall.

2021 NFL offseason: All 32 teams’ WR situations ahead of free agency, draft

Before roster building begins in earnest this offseason with free agency and the draft, Cynthia Frelund breaks down where every NFL team stands at wide receiver below. Note that wide receivers only — NOT all pass-catchers — were considered; each team’s top three receiver (by reception) is listed, and players who are not under contracted for 2021 are denoted as unrestricted free agents (UFA), restricted free agents (RFA) or exclusive rights free agents (ERFA).

2021 NFL Rumors: Could Deshaun Watson be traded to the Carolina Panthers?

Seemingly on a daily basis, fresh NFL news and rumors regarding Deshaun Watson and a potential trade emerge.

2021 NFL training camp: Biggest questions, roster projections for all 32 teams

NFL training camp for the 2021 season opened last week for the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers, who will play in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 5. The reigning champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers opened camp Sunday, while the rest of the league followed Tuesday.

The NFL got back to a semi-normal offseason schedule with seven new head coaches taking over for the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Chargers, New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles.

3 reasons Steelers will regret letting James Conner walk

The Steelers have shown this past season that there is not an abundance of talent in the RB room.

Pittsburgh made it known pretty early this offseason that they believe the struggles with their offense stem from the running game. It is not an easy thing to disagree with as for the last 3 seasons the Steelers have failed to rank higher than 29th in rush yards per game. It is not as if there is no hope for the run game in 2021, but the failure to resign James Conner definitely puts a damper on things.

5 major investigations into Donald Trump and his businesses, explained

The announcement by New York Attorney General Letitia James on Tuesday night that her office’s probe into The Trump Organization has evolved from a purely civil one to add a criminal investigation is a good reminder of the various legal entanglements facing former President Donald Trump as he works to keep control of the Republican Party and mulls a 2024 presidential re-run.

Although James’ office didn’t elaborate on what specifically led her office to make the investigation criminal, CNN legal analyst Elliot Williams offered this take on the move — and what it has to do with the ongoing investigation into the Trump organization by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance — in an interview on “New Day” Wednesday:

7 nooses found at Amazon construction site in Connecticut in past month

A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to those responsible after seven nooses were discovered at the construction site of an Amazon distribution center in Windsor, Connecticut, in the past month.

The first incident was reported to police on April 27, after a hangman’s noose was found hanging from a steel beam on the second floor of the building, according toNew Haven ABC affiliate WTNH.

Two days later, five more ropes that resembled a noose were found on several floors throughout the building, WTNH reported.

The latest noose was discovered Wednesday afternoon at the site, hanging on overhead beams, according to WTNH. The incident occurred during a lunch break, when many workers had left the area, police said.

8 Best Gins to Drink Straight in 2020

When it comes to the major spirit categories — whiskey, rum, vodka, tequila, brandy, gin — gin more often than not (along with vodka, depending on where you are) receives the least amount of love when it comes to being a sipping spirit. While whiskey and brandy usually come out on top, aged rums and tequilas are now getting recognition for their sippability.

9 Ways How to Grill Like An Argentinian

One of summer’s greatest pleasures is barbecue grilling.

To make the most of your barbecue season, we invite you to discover Argentinian grilling.

Argentina takes beef seriously and they have mastered the art of grilling.

After three months in Argentina on our quest for authentic food, we shared and enjoyed many asados or Argentinian barbecues.

We also dined at several parrillas known as steakhouses where Argentine grilling is front and center.

By observing how Argentinians grill, we learned about the various Argentine grilling techniques and what make them so unique.

To further ground ourselves in the Argentinian grilling culture, we had the pleasure of meeting Francis Mallmann, Argentine celebrity chef.

According to Mallmann, grilling in Argentina isn’t just about the food, it is a ritual and ceremony.

To make your summer grilling remarkable, here are 9 ways to grill like an Argentinian.

A Conversation with Filmmaker Adam Curtis on Power, Technology and How Ideas Get Into People’s Heads

The British filmmaker Adam Curtis may work for the BBC, a bastion of the British elite, but over a decades-long career, he has cemented himself as a cult favorite.

He is best known as the pioneer of a radical and unique style of filmmaking, combining reels of unseen archive footage, evocative music, and winding narratives to tell sweeping stories of 20th and 21st century history that challenge the conventional wisdom. “I’ve never thought of myself as a documentary maker,” he says. “I’m a journalist.”

A falling stock? Donald Trump-backed candidate loses U.S. House race to GOP’s Jake Ellzey.

WASHINGTON – The market value of a Donald Trump election endorsement just took a hit.

A Trump-endorsed candidate lost Tuesday to a fellow Republican in a closely watched Texas congressional race, undermining Trump’s claims that his endorsement is essential to a candidate’s success and emboldening his political opponents ahead of the 2022 elections.

The victory by Texas state legislator Jake Ellzey makes Trump’s endorsement look something like a new smartphone in a world of rapidly evolving technology, analysts said.

“Yeah, it’ll still do stuff for you, and you’d rather have it than nothing, but it’s becoming more obsolete by the day,” said Republican strategist Liz Mair. “And its firepower looks increasingly weak when contrasted with newer models.”

A National Strategy for the “New Normal” of Life With COVID

After previous infectious disease threats, the US quickly forgot and failed to institute necessary reforms. That pattern must change with the COVID-19 pandemic. Without a strategic plan for the “new normal” with endemic COVID-19, more people in the US will unnecessarily experience morbidity and mortality, health inequities will widen, and trillions will be lost from the US economy. This time, the nation must learn and prepare effectively for the future.

A Rusty Giuliani Returns to the Courtroom on Trump’s Behalf

The former federal prosecutor and New York City mayor, who has taken over Trump’s efforts to cast doubt on the election results, entered a courthouse Tuesday in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, with a few dozen Trump supporters cheering him from across the street.

Over the next several hours, he fiddled with his Twitter account, forgot which judge he was talking to and threw around unsupported accusations about a nationwide conspiracy by Democrats to steal the election.

A tale of two chambers: Trump’s power holds in House, wanes in Senate

The infrastructure debate dominating Capitol Hill this summer is highlighting the sharp contrast between the chambers when it comes to the influence of former President Trump over the GOP.

Nearly 20 Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), broke with Trump this week to support a massive infrastructure package, providing President Biden with a big win and reflecting the diminishing hold his predecessor has on the upper chamber.

But the story is likely to be much different in the House, where Trump retains a muscular grip and GOP leaders have deemed his support vital to both the party’s prospects of winning back the chamber and their individual aspirations for rising in the leadership ranks.

A technocrat with a lengthy career

Aaron Rodgers says he considered retirement, wanted to be more involved in Packers team-building decisions

All throughout this offseason, Aaron Rodgers was unafraid to make his unhappiness with the Green Bay Packers organization known in various ways. Whether it was doing interviews at golf tournaments or going on conspicuously-timed vacations, Rodgers made clear that he was not happy with the way the organization handled its succession plan, nor with how relatively uninvolved he was in the decision-making process when it came to adding talent around him.

Accounting for Net Worth of Trump, Clintons and Obamas

A meme circulating on Facebook claims without evidence that Hillary Clinton has made $95.5 million since she ran for president in 2016, and falsely implies that she and former President Barack Obama enriched themselves by “steal[ing] your money.”

Adams, D. – GB (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers (6/23) Advice: Adams has been arguably the best receiver in football over the past three seasons and should be the first receiver selected on Draft Day. Adams is worth a first-round pick in any league where catches count and an early second in non-PPR. Over the past three seasons he’s averaged 121 catches, 1,466 yards, and 14 touchdowns per 16 games. In 2020 he was 3.7 PPR Fantasy points per game better than the No. 2 wide receiver, Tyreek Hill. There should be little doubt Adams will be among the league leaders in targets, catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns as long as he stays healthy. The only possible concern for Adams would be the chance the Aaron Rodgers forces his way out of Green Bay. In that scenario, Adams could fall outside of the top five Fantasy receivers. Even at 28, Adams is in the conversation for the No. 1 Dynasty receiver, but that probably won’t be the case after 2021. In other words, if you’re not a contender, this is the prime time to sell Adams in a Dynasty league. (CBSSports.com)

AG Barr: No reason to name special counsels to investigate Hunter Biden or election fraud

Departing Attorney General William Barr continued to distance himself from President Donald Trump, saying Monday that he saw no reason to appoint special counsels to investigate Hunter Biden or unsubstantiated allegations of election fraud.

Barr, who is set to leave office Wednesday, also broke with Trump by publicly blaming Russia for a massive cyber attack that has affected more than a half-dozen government agencies and an untold number of private companies, even as the president pointed the finger at China over the weekend and sought to downplay the breach.

“From the information I have, I agree with Secretary Pompeo’s assessment,” Barr said, referring to State Department chief Mike Pompeo. “It certainly appears to be the Russians, but I’m not going to discuss it beyond that.”

AG pick Garland talks cannabis enforcement (Newsletter: February 23, 2021)

“Here’s a non-violent crime with respect to usage that does not require us to incarcerate people, and we’re incarcerating at significantly different rates of the different communities. That is wrong, and it’s the kind of problem that will then follow a person for the rest of their lives. It will make it impossible to get a job, it will lead to downward economic spiral for their family.”

Agholor, N. – NE (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Nelson Agholor, WR, New England Patriots (6/23) Advice: Can Nelson Agholor turn his upstart 2020 with the Raiders into an even bigger season with the Patriots? The odds seem long. Despite posting or matching career-highs in yardage, yards per catch and touchdowns, Agholor is now part of a crowded receiving corps attached to a quarterback quandary. Cam Newton threw just eight touchdowns in 15 games last season and has been above 25 passing scores once in his storied career. It’ll either be him or Alabama rookie Mac Jones firing downfield. And if that doesn’t spook you, then Agholor’s prior five seasons with under 800 yards — and four with four or fewer scores — will. Expecting Agholor to somehow improve on his 11.1 PPR points per game in the Patriots offense feels farfetched. At best, Agholor is worth a pick after 120th overall as a bench receiver.

Akers, C. – LAR (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Cam Akers, RB, Los Angeles Rams (6/23) Advice: Rams running back Cam Akers is a popular breakout candidate. That’s not surprising after coach Sean McVay said this offseason that he views Akers as “an every-down back” and “a special player.” Akers didn’t rate highly in Pro Football Focus’ elusiveness metric (37th out of 63 qualifiers) nor in yards after contact per attempt (2.84, 34th out of 63), and he also struggled in short-yardage conversions (50% success rate over 26 tries including 1 of 4 on goal-to-go plays). But what he did do was produce good numbers in a lead back role late in the year after he got over a rib injury. His final six games, playoffs included, saw him score three times, run for 561 yards on 132 carries and catch 11 passes for 147 more yards. That makes for a 17-game pace of just over 2,000 total yards. Whether or not he can play 17 games remains to be seen, but the Rams seem committed to him after giving Akers at least 15 carries in each of those final six games — and over 20 carries in four. A challenging schedule notwithstanding, people will draft Akers with the idea he’ll have a shot at over 300 touches in an improved Rams offense. That’ll make him an easy pick between 12th and 18th overall in just about every league. (CBSSports.com)

Allen, J. – Buf (QB)

NFL players who don’t get the COVID-19 vaccine will be required to stay in town during their team’s bye week and be tested for the virus every day. (5/31) Advice: NBC Sports’ Peter King reported on an unspecified team that had 65 of its 90 players vaccinated against COVID. That team would need another dozen players to get the jab before they can return to pre-COVID meeting and practice schedules. NFL teams with vaccination rates below 85 percent will have to keep running practices and meetings like they did in 2020. The Bills have become the most prominent vaccine-skeptical team, as Josh Allen and Cole Beasley have said they need to do more “research” before they sign up for the vaccine. Teams that can revert to pre-COVID practices will have distinct advantages over those who can’t. (ProFootballTalk.com via NBCSportsEdge.com)

Allen, K. – LAC (WR)

Keenan Allen Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: Would you believe me if I told you that Keenan Allen failed to record 1,000 yards last season? It’s true. Despite seeing 147 targets (5th in NFL), he finished with 992 yards (17th among wide receivers). The Chargers offense is surely going to change with Anthony Lynn out of the picture, so the hope should be that they’ll utilize Allen down the field just a tad more to increase his numbers. The good news is that Justin Herbert clearly found his “go-to” receiver, targeting Allen 10-plus times on 10 separate occasions. He’s an extremely safe WR2 based on volume alone, though it may be tough for him to get into the top-tier WR1 conversation seeing he’s never scored more than eight touchdowns. (FantasyPros.com)

An Ex-KGB Agent Says Trump Was a Russian Asset Since 1987. Does it Matter?

During the Soviet era, Russian intelligence cast a wide net to gain leverage over influential figures abroad. (The practice continues to this day.) The Russians would lure or entrap not only prominent politicians and cultural leaders, but also people whom they saw as having the potential for gaining prominence in the future. In 1986, Soviet ambassador Yuri Dubinin met Trump in New York, flattered him with praise for his building exploits, and invited him to discuss a building in Moscow. Trump visited Moscow in July 1987. He stayed at the National Hotel, in the Lenin Suite, which certainly would have been bugged. There is not much else in the public record to describe his visit, except Trump’s own recollection in The Art of the Deal that Soviet officials were eager for him to build a hotel there. (It never happened.)

Trump returned from Moscow fired up with political ambition. He began the first of a long series of presidential flirtations, which included a flashy trip to New Hampshire. Two months after his Moscow visit, Trump spent almost $100,000 on a series of full-page newspaper ads that published a political manifesto. “An open letter from Donald J. Trump on why America should stop paying to defend countries that can afford to defend themselves,” as Trump labeled it, launched angry populist charges against the allies that benefited from the umbrella of American military protection. “Why are these nations not paying the United States for the human lives and billions of dollars we are losing to protect their interests?”

Anderson, R. – Car (WR)

Robby Anderson Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: It’s odd to say, but Anderson was somewhat of a Jarvis Landry-type fantasy asset last year. He finished with more than 15.5 half PPR points just twice, but he also scored fewer than 8.0 half PPR points just four times, offering a level of consistency we hadn’t seen out of him. It’s because they used him in the possession-style role with a shorter average depth of target than he was getting with the Jets. The Panthers lost Curtis Samuel in free agency, but gained Terrace Marshall in the draft, and will get Christian McCaffrey back from injury, so the loss of Samuel doesn’t do a whole lot for projections. D.J. Moore started coming on more as the year went on, though the switch to Sam Darnold could prove to be a good thing for Anderson, who was Darnold’s teammate with the Jets. It’s still the same offense, and Anderson proved he’s able to contribute in a big way, making him somewhat of a safe WR3/4 option with WR2 upside should Darnold favor him as the top option.

Andrews, M. – Bal (TE)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Mark Andrews, TE, Baltimore Ravens (6/23) Advice: Mark Andrews took a small step back in 2019, but he should still be drafted as top-five tight end in the first four rounds of your draft. Despite missing two weeks on the COVID-19 list, Andrews tied Marquise Brown for the team lead in receptions and was the only Raven besides Brown with more than 50 targets. Andrews not only dominates targets in Baltimore, but he’s been very efficient. His 8.9 yards per target ranks fifth amongst tight ends since he entered the league and his 8.5% touchdown rate trails only Jared Cook. The fact that he’s still just 25 years old gives Andrews an argument for the top spot amongst tight ends in Dynasty. (CBSSports.com)

Barkley, S. – NYG (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Saquon Barkley, RB, New York Giants (6/23) Advice: Saquon Barkley is expected to be fine coming off last year’s torn ACL, and he should be ready for training camp. If he’s healthy as expected then Barkley should once again be considered a first-round draft pick in all Fantasy leagues, and he will likely be selected in the first five overall picks. Last year was a disaster for Barkley, who appeared in just two games and suffered a torn ACL in Week 2. However, he should return in time for training camp, and he still has the potential to be the No. 1 RB in all Fantasy leagues in 2021. Remember, prior to 2020 Barkley scored at least 20 PPR points in 16 of his first 29 games and failed to score at least 13 PPR points just five times over that span. He should remain the focal point of the Giants offense, and hopefully he’s healthy for all 17 games this year. (CBSSports.com)

Bateman, Bal (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Rashod Bateman, WR, Baltimore Ravens (6/23) Advice: Rashod Bateman was the Ravens’ first selection in the 2021 draft and should instantly compete with Marquise Brown to be the team’s No. 1 receiver. Bateman’s best value is in Dynasty, where he’s a high upside bench receiver worth a rookie pick early in the second round. The Ravens’ low pass volume will make it tough for Bateman to contribute to your Fantasy team in 2021, but if he beats out Brown, he could be a boom-or-bust No. 3 receiver. Target him in the final rounds of your redraft league, but he’ll be one of the first players you drop if he remains behind Brown. (CBSSports.com)

Beasley, C. – Buf (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Cole Beasley, WR, Buffalo Bills (6/23) Advice: Cole Beasley just had a career season in 2020, and he should once again be productive this year. He’s worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues, with his value higher in PPR. Last season, Beasley set career highs in targets (107), catches (82) and yards (967), and he also scored four touchdowns. He did this while playing through a fracture in his leg to close the season. He should be 100 percent healthy to open training camp, and Beasley should be No. 2 on the team in targets behind Stefon Diggs, even with the addition of receiver Emmanuel Sanders. Beasley is a trusted weapon for Josh Allen, which has proven to be a good commodity for Fantasy managers. (CBSSports.com)

Beckham Jr., O. – Cle (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Odell Beckham, WR, Cleveland Browns (6/23) Advice: Once a megastar, Odell Beckham is now no more than a No. 3 Fantasy receiver who shouldn’t be drafted before Round 7. Beckham is working his way back from yet another major injury and simply hasn’t been the same player in Cleveland. Beckham has reach 100 yards just twice in 23 games with the Browns as his catch rate has fallen 10% since his days as a Giant and his targets per game have fallen more than 25%. Even if Beckham were to regain every ounce of athleticism he once had, Kevin Stefanski’s system and the Browns’ crowded group of pass catchers would still limit the receiver’s upside. At 29 years old, he could still have a few good years left, but you should look to trade him in Dynasty if he gets off to a fast start in 2021. (CBSSports.com)

Biden awards ‘long overdue’ Medal of Honor to retired Col. Ralph Puckett Jr.

President Joe Biden and President Moon Jae-in, the leader of South Korea, commended the actions Friday of Col. Ralph Puckett Jr., a Korean War veteran who was awarded the Medal of Honor in a ceremony at the White House.

Before awarding Puckett the medal Friday, Biden described him as “true American hero” for whom the recognition was long overdue.

“Korea is sometimes called the forgotten war, but those men who were there under then-lieutenant Puckett’s command never forgot his bravery,” Biden said. “They never forgot he was right by their side every minute of it.”

Puckett, 94, earned the medal for actions he took more than 70 years ago, in November 1950. As a young first lieutenant in the Korean War, Puckett commanded the Eighth Army Ranger Company during a mission to seize “Hill 205” and defend it against a series of assaults by the Chinese. He risked his life multiple times to draw enemy fire, call for artillery strikes, check the perimeter and deliver ammunition to his soldiers.

Biden has a better handle on economics than Trump – but there are still risks

About half a year into Joe Biden’s presidency, it is time to consider how his administration’s economic doctrine compares with that of Donald Trump and previous Democratic and Republican administrations.

The paradox is that the “Biden doctrine” has more in common with Trump’s policies than with those of Barack Obama’s administration, in which the current president previously served. The neo-populist doctrine that emerged under Trump is now taking full form under Biden, marking a sharp break from the neoliberal creed followed by every president from Bill Clinton to Obama.

Akers, C. – LAR (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Cam Akers, RB, Los Angeles Rams (6/23) Advice: Rams running back Cam Akers is a popular breakout candidate. That’s not surprising after coach Sean McVay said this offseason that he views Akers as “an every-down back” and “a special player.” Akers didn’t rate highly in Pro Football Focus’ elusiveness metric (37th out of 63 qualifiers) nor in yards after contact per attempt (2.84, 34th out of 63), and he also struggled in short-yardage conversions (50% success rate over 26 tries including 1 of 4 on goal-to-go plays). But what he did do was produce good numbers in a lead back role late in the year after he got over a rib injury. His final six games, playoffs included, saw him score three times, run for 561 yards on 132 carries and catch 11 passes for 147 more yards. That makes for a 17-game pace of just over 2,000 total yards. Whether or not he can play 17 games remains to be seen, but the Rams seem committed to him after giving Akers at least 15 carries in each of those final six games — and over 20 carries in four. A challenging schedule notwithstanding, people will draft Akers with the idea he’ll have a shot at over 300 touches in an improved Rams offense. That’ll make him an easy pick between 12th and 18th overall in just about every league. (CBSSports.com)

He had eight games with at least 12 PPR points in the 10 games he appeared in, and he had six games with at least 19 total touches. Keep an eye on what happens with the Dolphins backfield prior to training camp, but Gaskin could be a No. 2 Fantasy running back if he’s the starter in Week 1. (CBSSports.com)
