Fantasy football Week 8: Add and drop

Published by
The San Diego Union-Tribune

Each week I’ll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football — I define “widely available” as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues — and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster. Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week. Here are my best bets off the waiver wire for Week 8: ADD — WR Allen Lazard, Packers (ESPN: 5%; Yahoo: 5%): Lazard was already trending towards fantasy relevancy with increased usage and a score in two straight games before Davante Adams landed on th… Read More “Fantasy football Week 8: Add and drop”

Alphabet revenue of $65.1 billion in the recently-ended quarter eclipsed the same period last year by some 41 percent, according to the tech titan, as its online ad engine and c… Read More “Google-parent Alphabet profit soars to over $18 bn”

The New “Plyscrapers”: Sweden Previews a Future of Wooden Skyscrapers

By Tanner Garrity After water, the second most used substance on the planet is concrete. It’s true. Concrete is the backbone of international infrastructure — buildings, highways, sidewalks, bridges, dams, sports arenas, they’re all made from concrete. On a broad scale, that isn’t going to change anytime soon. By 2050, the production of cement, the main ingredient in concrete, is expected to increase by two billion tons a year, which is … unfortunate. While cement is cheap, widely available and extremely strong, it also puts a massive strain on the environment. Cement makes up 5% of the carbon… Read More “The New “Plyscrapers”: Sweden Previews a Future of Wooden Skyscrapers”

The 49ers’ 2-4 start falls squarely on Kyle Shanahan’s shoulders. Here’s what to do.

Published by
The Sacramento Bee

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — It’s been a bad, bad six games for San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan. The 49ers are suddenly 2-4 to start 2021, losers of four straight, without the excuses of injuries they could credibly use last year, or a lack of continuity, or a new coach growing on the job. No, San Francisco is in the fifth season of Shanahan’s tenure. He and his team came in with high expectations — perhaps expectations of getting back to a Super Bowl or at least getting into the playoffs — and now they’re left searching for answers following a dismal 30-18 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, who… Read More “The 49ers’ 2-4 start falls squarely on Kyle Shanahan’s shoulders.
