How Can Laws Protect Me?

It is important for every American citizen to know and understand how laws work. Unfortunately, many people seem to forget that they are in fact people too. Unfortunately, laws only exist to keep you protected, while at the same time getting on a dangerous slippery slope as well. This happens almost every day. Most people simply don’t realize the actual law, so they always fail to do something to prevent themselves of what could certainly happen to them in the future. Laws can actually help guide us towards the right path and keep us from making poor choices or decisions that we may regret later down the road.

The slippery slope is one of life’s little mysteries, but it is very much a presence. If we don t pay attention when driving, we could easily crash into a guard rail and end up with a ticket. If we fail to yield when we are walking the street, we may find ourselves in an accident with an uninsured driver. When we are shopping and have our car keys out, we may very easily forget that we shouldn’t drink and drive, or that we should be careful when crossing the street.

This is why it is very important for every American citizen to be well acquainted with the law. It is not a hard concept, yet many times people forget just how important it is. We can easily get careless and make poor decisions that we may regret for the rest of our lives. Laws are there to keep us from making these mistakes, yet sometimes things happen that we can’t control, such as when we have an auto collision.

A question that I’m sure almost everyone has been asking themselves is “how can laws protect me when I get into an accident in September of next year.” The answer is simple. All laws were created so that people would be able to enjoy life. If we want to stay safe on the roads, we need to obey the laws all the time; even if we think they are silly or unnecessary.

A common question is “so, when do I break one of the laws?” The answer to that question is simple; we only break laws when we break them when we aren’t paying attention, thinking that they don’t exist. That slippery slope we talk about just isn’t there, so we don’t …

Fantasy Football Stock Update

The NFL has had a few surprises over the past four week, but the Carolina Panthers have gotten off to an impressive 3-1 start. Perhaps the league’s top runningback is out with injury and a new head coach. How does that translate to fantasy football

Based on how they performed in Week 4, these fantasy players saw their fantasy numbers increase or decrease.

Sizzlers

Carolina Panthers QB Sam Darnold. Darnold broke the NFL record for rushing for five touchdowns within his first four games. In each of his games, he’s thrown for at least two-thirds or more of his passes and has thrown for five touchdowns. Additionally, the Panthers look favorable for the future.

QB Taylor Heinicke Washington Football Team. Heinicke is currently available in more fantasy leagues. Heinicke now has three weeks of solid fantasy numbers. His best day of season was in Atlanta. He passed for 290 yards and scored three touchdowns. With 43 yards of rushing, it was a triumphant day.

Baltimore Ravens, RB Latavius Murray Murray seems to be the leading back, even though Ty’Son Williams is inactive and Le’Veon Bell is still learning the offense.

Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner You should see Conner’s potential in an exciting offense like Arizona’s with four touchdowns in his last two weeks.

Deebo Samuel, San Francisco 49ers WR: It’s hard for anyone to ignore Samuel’s accomplishments so far, regardless which quarterback they’re playing. Samuel has averaging more than 10 targets each game and has twice passed 150 receiving yards. He also scored two touchdowns in Sunday’s win over Seattle.

Fizzlers

RB Myles Gaskin Miami Dolphins. Not only has the Dolphins abandoned Gaskin as a game plan player, but they also appear to be force feeding Malcolm Brown and Salvon Alam. Gaskin did not touch the ball twice for three yard against the Colts.

Los Angeles Rams, RB Sony Michel. Michel, after recording 20 carries as a starter Week 3, took a backseat as Darrell Henderson recovered from an injury. He recorded only three carries. He also lost a ball, which may have made him a target for coach Sean McVay.

WR CeeDee Lamb Dallas Cowboys. Lamb’s two catches for 13 yard is an act that has been disappearing. Lamb’s usage of the tight end Dalton Schultz has decreased Lamb’s usage. Lamb won’t be a reliable fantasy start anymore with Michael Gallup expected to return.

WR JuJu Smith Schuster …

Fantasy Football Rankings Week 5, 2021: Start James Robinson, Sit Justin Herbert

Sam Darnold, Panthers quarterback is leading the NFL with five rushing touchdowns. This makes him one of the most overlooked Fantasy Football picks in 2021. Darnold is given another chance to score against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have given up more points than Darnold in their two previous games. Darnold could easily be near the top in Week 5 Fantasy Football rankings. But, how does Darnold stack up against signal-callers Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes?

Darnold is Darnold a good choice for your Week 5 Fantasy Football lineups? You should also consider other potential players to include in your Week 5 Fantasy soccer strategy. Before you make your rosters, check out the Week 5 Fantasy soccer rankings generated by the SportsLine advanced computer model.

SportsLine’s model is better than human experts when it comes ranking Fantasy football players. That could literally make the difference between winning your league and going home empty handed.

The Panthers wide receiver D.J. was the most high-rated player in the model last week. Moore claimed he would be a top-10 position player. Moore snagged eight receptions, totaling 113 yards. He also scored two touchdowns in the Cowboys’ game. Anyone who had him in their line-up was well on their path to a fantastic week.

The model, which simulates every NFL football game 10,000 times, now shows Fantasy football rankings Week 5 for the 2021 NFL season. You can see them at SportsLine.

Top Fantasy football picks for Week 5

One player is very high on the model this week: Jaguars runningback James Robinson. Robinson seems to be finding his groove after a slow beginning to the season. Robinson has been able to find the end zone three of his last two games. He also averaged over 80 rushing yards per match during that period.

Robinson has been involved in Jacksonville’s passing attack as well, scoring at least six touchdowns twice this season. Robinson now looks to carry this momentum into Sunday’s matchup with the Titans. The Titans average giving up 27.8 per game this season. SportsLine’s model ranked Robinson as a top-10 back this week. This makes him a solid RB1.

The shocking news is that Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, who has thrown for over 500 yard and seven touchdowns in his previous two outings, struggles big-time. Herbert had a strong performance Monday night against the Raiders. He completed 25 of 38 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns.

Herbert has already passed for 1,178 yards this season. …

Cordarrelle Paterson: Fantasy Football League Winner or Nah?

Cordarrelle’s nine-year history of not being properly used on offense is a tragedy. It looks more like a pity now that Patterson, who was once a wide receiver, has made a comeback in Atlanta and is a fantasy-star running back at age 30.

The Falcons best player has long been a top gadget playmaker, and kick-return specialist. Patterson’s 29.6 yard per kick return is second in league history. Also, his eight kick returned touchdowns are tied at first. Patterson’s ability to elusively bounce a pingpong ball away from his middle-aged dad is unmatched, and he has been known for making an electrifying play or two every season.

He has never been a reliable fantasy selection. Patterson had never been a reliable fantasy option before Matt Nagy had him switch to Bears receiver in 2020. Before that, he was an infrequently used receiver who had only 80 targets and only 500 yards per year. He averaged 4.3 fantasy points per contest during his 2013 rookie season, which was 9.4 points more than his record season.

Patterson looks like a potential winner in fantasy football leagues. Patterson has already racked up 354 yards with five touchdowns during 2021. Patterson also has 18 receptions. Due to his remarkable 0.86 fantasy score per snap, Patterson ranks third in the PPR RB3 category. This is an incredible feat for all flex-eligible football players. He is also second among PFF’s running backs. The PPR league’s overwhelming majority did not draft the specialist in journeyman returns. He is on track for one the best fantasy seasons of any running back older than 30, in league history. There is only one question: Can this continue?

Skeptics will counter that Patterson is not the Atlanta’s leading backfield player in snaps. Mike Davis leads the pack with a 188-197 advantage, which includes a majority the team’s redzone rushes. Patterson is PFF’s highest overachiever by far in expected fantasy goals, and he’s never maintained that level of production for a full season, despite occasional glimpses in the past.

Patterson could be being held back by historical precedent. Curtis Martin, Priest Holmes, Fred Jackson,and Lamar Smith are only four other runningbacks that have started a season with Patterson’s 83.4-point average through four weeks. These four running backs average 26 touches per week, but Patterson’s average is just over 11. This ranks Patterson outside of the top 30 in his position for this …

Fantasy Football Week 5: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Kickers

Start ‘Em, Seat ‘Em provides a comprehensive look at the best and most disappointing matchups based in part on a PPR scoring system for fantasy football.

Week 5 Kickers

Start of the Week

Daniel Carlson vs. Bears (5:05 p.m. ET, CBS): Carlson is still one of the best fantasy football kickers, averaging 10 PPG per game. This week, he should be thriving against a Bears defense which has allowed him to kickers at 9.6 fantasy points per game. Carlson is a top five option, I believe.

Start ‘Em

Ryan Succop vs. Dolphins (1 p.m. ET, CBS. Succop hasn’t had huge fantasy points so far and is currently tied for 13th place among kickers. However, I expect him to have a good game against the Dolphins. Their defense has surrendered eight field goals and is tied with the Dolphins for seventh place in terms of points allowed to kickers in 2021.

Greg Joseph vs. Lions (1.30 p.m. ET, Fox: Joseph gave up a one-point stinker in last week’s loss to Browns. But I like Joseph to rebound in what should be a positive matchup with the Lions. Their defense has allowed kickers an average of 30 fantasy points over their last two games. Joseph is expected to be a top-10 fantasy scorer.

More Starts

Brandon McManus at Steelers (1:00 p.m. ET, Fox

Matt Prater vs. 49ers (4:25 p.m. ET, Fox

Sleepers

Randy Bullock at Jaguars (1. p.m. ET, CBS

Week 5 Sit’Em: The Kickers

Sit of Week

Mason Crosby at Bengals (1.pm. ET, FOX: Crosby is hot lately, scoring a total of 25 fantasy points in two of his last games. He’ll likely see a decline against Bengals however. Their defense has allowed only 5.6 fantasy point per game to kickers and no kicker has registered more than eight points against them.

Sit & Relax

Graham Gano at Cowboys (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX – Gano has scored 13 combined goals in his previous two games. The matchup against Cowboys doesn’t look very promising on paper. They have only allowed one kicker to score more than seven fantasy goals in games against them, while opposing teams have made just four field goal attempts.

Chris Boswell vs. Broncos (1. pm. ET, FOX: Boswell has scored a meagre 7.3 fantasy points in four of his first four games. This will be his ceiling against this week’s …

RB Picks For NFL Week 5 Fantasy football waiver wire

The fantasy regular season is over a quarter through. Right now, you should know what you want. Here’s my piece of advice to you this week as you contemplate the waiver wire: Take a hard, honest look at your roster and determine which players you are most interested in.

You can’t guarantee that every week contains a lot of must-haves. There are many weeks where there aren’t. However, now is the time to consider if you may need a bench-wide receiver with a high ceiling. You might be looking for a backup quarterback who matches up with your regular starter. You could consider this insurance for your running back.

Damien Williams (RB, Chicago Bears 10.4%): After David Montgomery’s injury in Week 4, the Bears were left with a huge blow. Williams was able to take over a larger role. Williams carried eight times, had a touchdown, and caught two passes. This is one of his strengths.

Williams sustained a quad injury during the game. However, there aren’t any indications as to the extent of the injury. Williams is an essential addition as the Bears have a very thin running back, particularly until Tarik Cohen comes back. Khalil Herbert, who is the only running back currently on the roster, should also be considered.

Samaje Perine RB, Cincinnati Bengals (1.5%): Adam Schefter has informed Perine that Joe Mixon has sustained a low grade ankle sprain which has left him disabled for several weeks. Perine will be the next in line to replace Mixon in the Bengals’ backfield. Perine will have a better chance of a steady workload, even though rookie Chris Evans may also be in the mix. Perine has served as a fill-in for Mixon at times in the past. Although he’s not as fast or proficient in the passing game, Perine is still useful enough that he should be in every league.

Dalton Schultz TE, Dallas Cowboys (20.9%). The Cowboys have an endless supply pass catchers. Schultz has been blazing over the past two week. He has now accounted for six catches in the last three games. The tight end position is where fantasy fantasy production is most difficult. Schultz, who plays alongside Blake Jarwin, has shown that there is plenty to be gained.

Emmanuel Sanders (WR), Buffalo Bills (44.4%) – Another week, five more catches for Sanders. It’s obvious that Sanders is the Bills number two wide receiver. He …
