Robinson II, A. – Chi (WR)

Allen Robinson II Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: Opportunity is everything, right? It’s why despite Robinson’s lackluster quarterback play, he’s been able to finish as a top-12 receiver in back-to-back seasons. The upgrade to Andy Dalton was solid, but if the Bears play Justin Fields, it could be even better. Based on opportunity alone, Robinson should have finished as the WR4 in each of the last two seasons (that’s based on how many targets he saw and where he saw them), so there’s certainly room for improvement in his finish. Robinson has proven to be a WR1 with bad quarterback play in this same offense, making him one of the safer options as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2. (FantasyPros.com)

Chark Jr., D.J. – Jax (WR)

D.J. Chark Jr. Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: There are many trying to figure out the target share for Laviska Shenault, Marvin Jones, and Travis Etienne, but the one who’s the clear-cut No. 1 option on this team is Chark. If Trevor Lawrence turns out to be the real deal, Chark can be the 2021 version of Tee Higgins when he was with Joe Burrow (was the No. 11 wide receiver in eight full games with Burrow). Chark already flashed WR1 potential in 2019 when he racked up 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns with the combination of Gardner Minshew and Nick Foles, so why can’t he be more with Lawrence? The coaching staff is a big question mark, but you don’t draft Lawrence to run the ball 40 times per game. Chark comes with some risk but even more upside. (FantasyPros.com)

Why Eagles WR Travis Fulgham will have a breakout season in 2021

Last season, Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham made the most of the first NFL action of his career.

The Eagles claimed Fulgham off waivers before signing him to the practice squad and when his number was called he instantly became a fan favorite.

Here are a few reasons why you should expect Fulgham to have a breakout season.

‘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.

KGB groomed Trump as an asset for 40 years, former Russian spy says

The book says Russian officials repeatedly helped Trump get through dire financial straits over the years, providing him with laundered money to support his businesses.

“Trump was the perfect target in a lot of ways: His vanity, narcissism made him a natural target to recruit. He was cultivated over a 40-year period, right up through his election,” Shvets told the Guardian.

Woods, R. – LAR (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams (6/23) Advice: Robert Woods’ past three seasons provide enough evidence that he’ll have a shot at very good stats now that Matthew Stafford will plug into the Rams offense. Routinely settling in as a middle-of-the pack No. 2 receiver in PPR, Woods has averaged at least 8.1 targets per game since 2018 and been the Rams’ leader or near-leader in air yards each year. Getting Stafford is a definite upgrade — Jared Goff became a liability thanks in part to an average completion depth in 2020 of just 4.9 yards. Stafford, meanwhile, has helped push at least one teammate into the top 12 in air yards in each of the past three years. He’s a far more aggressive downfield thrower, something the Rams figure to lean on. That’s good news for Woods. At worst, pencil him in as a No. 2 receiver who should average close to 15 PPR points per game (just as he’s done for the past three seasons), but keep in mind that the quarterback change could kick his stats up a notch. Round 4 isn’t too early to take Woods in PPR, whereas he shouldn’t get touched until early Round 5 in non-PPR. (CBSSports.com)

George Conway Urges ‘Criminal’ Probe Into Allegations Trump Attempted to ‘Coerce’ AG

Attorney George Conway called for a “criminal investigation” into former President Donald Trump over his alleged attempt to “coerce” acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to declare that the 2020 election was “corrupt,” despite no evidence to support the claim.

Handwritten notes from a December phone call between Trump and Rosen said Trump told the acting attorney general to “just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me” and Republicans in Congress, the Associated Press reported at the end of July.

Conway, the husband of former Trump senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, argued in a Friday morning interview with MSNBC that this alleged action by Trump was criminal and amounted to attempted coercion of the Justice Department.

Taylor, T. – Hou (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Tyrod Taylor, QB, Houston Texans (6/23) Advice: The only way Tyrod Taylor will garner attention from Fantasy managers is if Deshaun Watson misses playing time in 2021. The Texans’ new veteran backup is insurance for Watson, but really shouldn’t get counted on for much else. He has 13 passing touchdowns in his last 16 starts going back four seasons. Only desperate drafters in two-QB leagues should consider Taylor with a late-rounder. (CBSSports.com)

Obama congratulates MLB for ‘taking a stand’ against Georgia election law as Trump calls for boycott

Former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump have weighed in on Major League Baseball’s decision to move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to Georgia’s new sweeping election law that imposes significant new obstacles to voting.

Obama on Saturday congratulated the league “for taking a stand on behalf of voting rights for all citizens,” following MLB’s Friday announcement. The Democrat’s tweeted support of the move struck a starkly different tone from his Republican successor’s statement late Friday that called for a boycott of baseball and all of the “woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections.”

NFL’s most underappreciated players: Deion Jones, Allen Robinson, Dallas Goedert among NFC picks

One of my favorite offseason tasks is to scour every NFL roster and identify the most underappreciated player on each team using my context-based models. In the fast-paced NFL season, it’s easy to focus on superstars or skill-position players who help us win in fantasy football, but one of the most useful applications of analytics is to view every game from the previous campaign through the lens of a total-contribution metric to see where teams earned an edge that perhaps didn’t get as much attention as it should have during the season. With that in mind, here’s how I came up with my list of the most underappreciated players …
