Fantasy Injury Updates: Calvin Ridley, Mike Evans, DeVante Parker, DJ Chark affect Week 15 waiver wire pickups

first_img(Update: Doug Marrone told reporters Chark is “week-to-week.”)MORE WEEK 15:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsJacksonville doesn’t have anything to play for, so they might play it safe with Chark. If he misses time, both Dede Westbrook and Chris Conley can be used at least as FLEX options in PPR leagues and probably in standard formats too against a WR-friendly Raiders’ secondary in Week 15. Calvin Ridley, Mike Evans and DeVante Parker were all forced from their games Sunday with injuries and did not return. Heading into Week 15 and more fantasy playoff matchups, owners will be hoping their starting fantasy wide receivers can make quick recoveries. But if they don’t our WR rankings, sleepers and waiver wire suggestions will include each of their replacements.For updates on injured QBs Patrick Mahomes, Jameis Winston, and Tom Brady, click here; for the latest on injured RBs Derrius Guice, Derrick Henry, and more, go here; for the latest on ailing TEs  Noah Fant, Ryan Griffin, Mark Andrews, and Jared Cook, click here; for updates on injured TEs Gerald Everett, Evan Engram, and Greg Olsen, go here; for updates on WRs Adam Thielen, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Will Fuller, and T.Y.

WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerCalvin Ridley injury updateRidley sustained what was termed an abdominal injury Sunday that was at least visually scary. He came out of the medical tent during the third quarter, then collapsed to the ground and had to be carted off, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post. The team did not provide a further update after the game.(Update: Ridley announced on his Instagram that he’s done for the season.)This didn’t appear to be some standard football injury, so it’s hard to anticipate potential time Ridley may miss. His absence would probably elevate Russell Gage back into the WR3/FLEX consideration he had with Julio Jones out, although Gage saw only four targets Sunday, perhaps because the Falcons were winning big by the time Ridley exited. Don’t rush to pick up Olamide Zaccheaus after his 93-yard TD — he’s still well down the depth chart in Atlanta. WEEK 15: Top Waiver PickupsMike Evans injury newsEvans appeared to injure his left hamstring on his touchdown catch Sunday, not fully celebrating as he limped off to the sideline. He headed to the locker room and didn’t return to the game. In his absence, both Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson caught touchdowns.We’d claim Perriman before Watson based on their usage before Evans was hurt, although Tampa Bay runs enough three-wide sets for them both to have some appeal against the Lions in Week 15. WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endDeVante Parker concussion updateParker’s head was slammed to the ground Sunday after a catch, forcing him from the game with a concussion. Miami’s Albert Wilson left the game shortly after with a concussion of his own, depleting the Dolphins’ receiving corps further.A matchup with the Giants in Week 15 makes having a piece of this passing attack a worthwhile pursuit. We’d bet on Allen Hurns being the de facto No. 1 if Parker is out, but youngster Isaiah Ford could also play a role after catching six-of-nine targets Sunday. Hurns is worth a waiver claim, especially for Parker owners.WEEK 15 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPDJ Chark injury updateChark limped off the field late in Sunday’s game with an ankle injury. He was deemed questionable to return but didn’t come back in the blowout loss. He left the stadium with a protective boot on his left foot. last_img read more

Killer of sheriff’s deputy pleads guilty, receives life sentence without parole

first_img“I will pray he was sincere,” John March said. Barbara March said she knows her son’s heart and that he would forgive his killer. “This day is very sad for me because the man over there chose to do evil with his life,” she said. March was killed April 29, 2002, after he pulled over Garcia on Live Oak Avenue in Irwindale on a traffic stop. Garcia told friends if he ever got pulled over by an officer he won’t hesitate to use a gun, said sheriff’s Homicide Capt. Ray Peavy, who was the original homicide lieutenant on the case. March started walking toward the car and Garcia walked toward him. Peavy said detectives believe the deputy told Garcia to turn around so he could pat him down. He thinks Garcia turned, reached for his gun, turned back and shot March. He said Garcia then stood over March as he lay on the street and shot him again. “People driving by saw part of this which made it even more of a horrendous crime. They were shocked,” Peavy said. Using a translator, Garcia read a statement apologizing to March’s relatives, friends and colleagues who filled the courtroom. Garcia never looked at the family. “I know they don’t want to see my face,” he said. “I know this will not take the hatred you feel for me. I know when I ask for forgiveness for what I have done I know the hatred is going to \ but I know someday you will forgive me.” March’s parents; his sister, Erin Hildreth; and his widow, Teri, spoke in court about their loss, what March meant to them and addressed Garcia. Hildreth said there was a time when he was sweet like all of God’s children. Now he’s a murderer and has to pay for what he did, but she will be praying for him. Teri March said she will learn and pray to forgive Garcia. She said that she doesn’t have hate for him anymore because it took too much energy. Detectives said Garcia fled to Mexico within 24 hours of the killing. He remained on the run until Feb. 23, 2006, when Mexican authorities arrested him at a relative’s house in Jalisco. The delay was due in part to a 2001 ruling by the Mexican Supreme Court that said life in prison without the possibility of parole was cruel and unusual punishment. Because of the court decision, suspects who faced a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole couldn’t be extradited. Mexico already doesn’t send back suspects who could get the death penalty in the U.S. The March case became a national example of the problem. The deputy’s family kept the issue on the forefront for years, going to events, lobbying legislators, pushing for change to the treaty. In November 2005, the Mexican Supreme Court reversed the ruling which paved the way for Garcia and other suspects to be extradited. “He will spend the rest of his days in prison until he is dead. This is a very proud day for the justice system,” District Attorney Steve Cooley said, adding that a lot of credit has to go to the March family. “When it comes to murder, there is no justice. However, there is accountability. Today Garcia accounted for his crime,” said Sheriff Lee Baca. He called March a good man and said the deputy will forever be a hero in the eyes of his family and the Sheriff’s Department. “Armando Garcia does not deserve to live, but the justice system has made its decision and the decision is guilty,” Baca said. Teri March said the way her husband died by himself on that street was more than they could bear and then to find out his killer fled as well. She said Garcia hid behind a system that was broken. She vowed to finish her husband’s work that day even if it took her entire life. “It’s over. The fight is finally over,” she said. “Dave lives on in my heart. I think a lot of good came out of something so awful.” [email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2718160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The attempted-murder charges stemmed from incidents that occurred in Baldwin Park on Feb. 16, 2002, and Nov. 18, 2001. Garcia, also known as Armando Garcia, asked the deputy’s family to forgive him. “I only want to ask forgiveness for what I have done and I know you will forgive me,” he said through a translator. John March, David March’s father, said it was a bittersweet day. He said Garcia apologized but only God knows if that apology was sincere or that of a sociopath trying to get off the hook. • Photo Gallery: Garcia pleads guilty • Video: Garcia pleads guilty POMONA – A man who tried to escape prosecution by hiding in Mexico pleaded guilty Friday to killing Deputy David March during a 2002 traffic stop and will spend the rest of his life in prison. At what was supposed to be a routine preliminary hearing, Jorge Arroyo Garcia agreed to plead guilty to one count of second-degree murder with special allegations for using a gun to commit the murder, and intentionally killing a peace officer in the line of duty. Pomona Superior Court Judge Charles Horan immediately sentenced Garcia to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Garcia will be sent to Calipatria State Prison. last_img read more


first_imgA Co Donegal man has walked free from the Special Criminal Court in Dublin after he was cleared of an IRA membership charge.Mr Justice Paul Butler, presiding at the three-judge, non-jury court, said that while the court was satisfied that Chief Superintendent Terry Mc Ginn believed that Philip McGavigan was a member of the IRA on February 2, 2010, the court must have reasonable doubt in relation to that belief having regard to other evidence. The court said that other evidence included a background report prepared by another garda which said that McGavigan had no association with any dissident republican personnel.Chief Supt McGinn had told the court during the trial that her belief was based on confidential information from several sources and she added that she did not want to disclose those sources.The court had heard that McGavigan told gardaí that he had travelled to an isolated rural house, which had been placed under surveillance by armed detectives, to poach deer by lamp light.Mr Justice Butler said that the court found McGavigan’s account to be “incredible.” The judge said that it would appear that “some form of criminal activity was intercepted by the gardaí that evening” and it commended the gardaí for their bravery and professionalism.McGavigan (aged 50), of Coneyburrow, Lifford had pleaded not guilty to membership of an unlawful organisation, namely the Irish Republican Army, otherwise Oglaigh na hEireann, otherwise the IRA, on February 2 last year.Chief Supt McGinn said during the trial that in 2009 gardaí in Co Donegal targetted an IRA group in the Lifford, Sion Mills and Stranorlar area which was involved in various activities, including tiger kidnappings and shootings.DONEGAL MAN CLEARED OF IRA MEMBERSHIP CHARGE was last modified: May 28th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Happy Birthday – the Wiki Celebrates its Sweet 16

first_imgThe wiki turns16 today. How far it has come since that day 16 years ago when Ward Cunningham created a Web page that anyone could edit.Today, we see the evidence of that pioneering work in all facets of the Web and the emerging app ecosystem.In the 1990s, there was a vision of the read/write Web. But most sites were static with little or no interactivity.The wiki helped transform the Web into an experience that is as much about writing to a page as it is about reading it.As I write this, billions of messages are being written on Web sites and apps of all varieties. That’s the read/write Web and what we see as the norm for mobile apps. In may ways, those developments represent the significance of this birthday.So, how can we celebrate?Edit the WikiBirthday page! Add your name and a birthday note. Do so and you’ll get a nice little thank you from Ward Cunningham.Edit the WikiBirthday Facebook page.Tweet a happy birthday note.Write a blog post.Tell your wiki story.Here’s mine:I learned about RSS in 2003 and decided to do a Webcast called RSS Winterfest. I soon discovered Socialtext and learned about the power of the wiki and the potential combination with RSS. Ross Mayfield and the Socialtext team became a big part of that event. We created a wiki that we used as a way to live edit the discussions taking place in the webcast. Roland Tanglao helped edit in real-time as we discussed the potential of RSS in the two-day event with Dave Winer, Robert Scoble, Jeff Jarvis and a host of others. That was a defining time for me and has since led me on a host of adventures. Thank you, Ward. It’s a great day to celebrate!

Video: Oklahoma State Was Given A Phantom First Down Against Kansas State, Scored 4 Plays Later

first_imgOklahoma State coach on the sideline against Kansas State.oklahoma state phantom first downIt’s been a tough year for the the Big 12’s referees. It’s about to get worse.During Saturday’s contest between Oklahoma State and Kansas State, it appears that the Cowboys were given a phantom first down when they should have been four yards short of the line to gain. Facing a 3rd and 23 from Oklahoma State’s 42-yard line, Mason Rudolph connected with Marcell Ateman for a 19-yard gain. Fox Sports 1 showed a replay of the play, and when they panned back to the live action, OSU had somehow been given a first down.A user took video of the entire sequence. The play in question comes at around the 2:30 mark.Jake Trotter, who covers the Big 12 for ESPN, confirmed that the officials made a mistake. As he notes, Oklahoma State scored a touchdown just four plays later.Big 12 officials did in fact award Oklahoma St a phantom first down when it should’ve been fourth-and-four. OSU scored TD four plays later— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) October 4, 2015How does this happen? We’re not sure. But with the Cowboys eking out a two-point win over the Wildcats, there are going to be lots of questions here.last_img read more

Geno Smith Wasnt Better Than His Backup

In the most surreal bit of sports news to hit Tuesday’s wires, Geno Smith, the incumbent starting quarterback for the New York Jets, is going to miss six to 10 weeks with an injury. And it wasn’t just any kind of injury; it was the kind you get when a teammate punches you and breaks your jaw.According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, now-cut linebacker IK Enemkpali slugged Smith because he failed to reimburse Enemkpali for a $600 plane ticket. Jets fans — at least, Jets fans in the FiveThirtyEight office — rejoiced. But coming into the preseason, this Jets team showed at least a vague sense of promise. Are the Jets really better off without Smith? Last year, New York went 4-12 (3-10 under Smith) with one of the NFL’s worst passing offenses, and Smith was pretty bad for the second straight season. In fact, his career has gotten off to one of the worst starts of any QB since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Although Hall of Famers Troy Aikman and Terry Bradshaw kicked off their careers with equally bad passing efficiency numbers, it’s far more likely that Smith is a talent on par with, say, Kyle Boller than that he’s harboring hidden star potential.And while Smith will be 25 this season, an age at which QBs still show a decent amount of improvement, the typical aging curve wouldn’t even carry Smith to league-average status at his peak.Meanwhile, the Jets’ backup quarterback isn’t a bad one. Longtime Buffalo Bills starter Ryan Fitzpatrick occupied the seat behind Smith and — statistically speaking — he’s probably a better QB than the man slated for the huddle, at least in the short term. Over the past two seasons (when he was with the Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans), Fitzpatrick’s Total QBR1ESPN’s play-by-play-based measurement of quarterbacking performance, which grades on a 0-100 scale. of 54.1 was better than Smith’s 41.2 mark during that span, and Fitzpatrick’s cumulative ProFootballFocus grade of +11.3 vastly outpaced Smith’s total of -37.3. By the numbers, the Jets are better off with the glass-jawed Smith out of the game, holding a clipboard on the sidelines.Of course, these kinds of assessments always come with the caveat that individual football statistics are obscured by countless interactions, coaching decisions and other contextual factors. And the Jets did add a good receiver over the offseason, Brandon Marshall, so it’s possible Smith would have improved significantly in 2015 had he not run afoul of Enemkpali’s fist. But Jets fans shouldn’t worry too much about what might have been: The team’s offense will probably be better with Fitzpatrick under center than it would have been with Smith. read more
