The Thursday-night opener is the traditional time slot for the defending Super Bowl champions, so the Patriots were bumped to the Week 1 Sunday night game, in which they will host the Steelers.Based on strength of schedule for all 32 teams, the Raiders have the hardest schedule in 2019. The opponents on the schedule for coach Jon Gruden’s team combined for a .539 win percentage last season, the highest number for any team’s opponents in 2019. Ironically, the team with the easiest schedule for 2019 based on opponents’ win percentage from last season is the Redskins, who are coached by Jon’s brother Jay Gruden. The ranking of all 32 NFL teams based on strength of schedule for 2019 can be found here. Also of interest are the primetime TV schedules for “Monday Night Football,” “Sunday Night Football” and “Thursday Night Football.” (Those schedules can be found here), as well as Thanksgiving games in 2019. Like they did last season, the Lions will host the Bears in the first of three games to be played on Thanksgiving day. The Cowboys will host the Dolphins in the late afternoon time slot, and in the night game, the Falcons will host the Saints.2019 NFL SCHEDULE:Who has the hardest schedule? | Primetime games for 2019As for the schedule for the NFL’s 2019 international games, five dates, locations and kickoff times are set.

Dhoni almost pulled off Chennai’s chase of 161 as he smashed five fours and seven sixes in his 48-ball blitz only to see his team lose by one run in Bangalore in the Twenty20 tournament.With defending champions Chennai needing 26 off the last over, Dhoni hit a four and three sixes but missed the final ball from paceman Umesh Yadav and ran to get runs through byes.Bangalore wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, who top-scored with 53 in his team’s 161-7, hit the stumps to run out Shardul Thakur as Virat Kohli’s side managed to win their third game.“A whole lot of emotions. We thought we were outstanding with the ball till the 19th over mark. To be very honest, that was the last thing I would have expected,” said a relieved Kohli.“But anything can happen in the game of cricket. MS (Dhoni) did what he does well and gave us a scare.”The 37-year-old Dhoni, known for his finishing skills, lifted his side from a precarious 28-4 in the sixth over to bring them within touching distance of victory.He built crucial partnerships including a 55-run fifth-wicket stand with Ambati Rayudu, who made 29, to try and calculate the chase.“We did really well to restrict RCB below par. I think it was more of a calculation mistake that we lost wickets early on,” said the skipper.“T20 is all about taking risks, but you can still calculate. A lot of boundaries were needed, right now you can calculate, one run there, and two runs there and we just lost by one run. But you can also say we missed some boundaries.”South African paceman Dale Steyn did the early damage with his twin strikes to be on a hat-trick in the very first over of the Chennai innings.Steyn got Australia’s Shane Watson caught at slip for five, on the fifth delivery and then bowled Indian batsman Suresh Raina for nought. He returned figures of 2-29.
Embattled Lions assistant coach Joey Mongalo has managed to keep his job.The 34-year-old, found guilty of indecent assault by an Australian court last month, hasn’t been with the team for the last two weeks as he had been recalled to face an internal disciplinary hearing, which was chaired by an independent arbiter.The union on Thursday confirmed in a media statement that the process is concluded and found that Mongalo, who’s the side’s defence coach, “breached Company Policy, by bringing the Company’s name into disrepute”.ALSO READ: Mongalo sentenced for sexual harrassment as Lions’ problems mountAs a result, the Lions “decided to proceed with the recommended sanction handed down by the independent labour consultant, which includes corrective disciplinary action and compulsory ethical and professional management training”.However, the hearing found no grounds for Mongalo’s potential dismissal and he’ll recommence his duties from next week Monday.The Lions have a bye this week.The union also reiterated that Mongalo will be appealing his conviction in the Australian Magistrate’s Court and “proceeds to do so in his private capacity”.“The Lions Rugby Company considers the (internal disciplinary) matter as having been finalized,” the statement said,“It will not make any further comments regarding this matter.”For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.
Rohr, 66, has extended his stay in Nigeria till 2022 after he agreed to a pay cut in the local currency and reside in the country.Officials said the German-born coach will earn $49,000 a month instead of the $55,000 stipulated in his previous contract and he will live in Nigeria for at least 10 months a year.“This is a special job because this is my team, I built it with my staff,” the former Niger and Gabon coach said Monday on local television.“It’s a very young team, but the mission is not finished yet, so we want to continue.“We all have to make sacrifices and I will be the first.”Rohr said the target is to be champions of Africa again. The Super Eagles have won the Africa Cup of Nations three times — in 1980, 1994 and 2013.“Let’s qualify for (the Nations Cup) and then we want to win it,” he said.“We have a good team, we’re now number three in Africa. When I arrived (in 2016), we were number 13.“We have worked together for the past four years and I hope we can progress.”Rohr led Nigeria to third place at last year’s Africa Cup in Egypt, where they lost 2-1 to eventual champions Algeria in the semi-finals after conceding a stoppage-time goal.His team top their qualifying group for the 2021 Nations Cup slated for Cameroon with six points after winning their first two games against second-placed Benin and Lesotho, who are third.Sierra Leone are the other team in the group and are bottom on a point.The top two teams in the group will advance to the final tournament.In his four years in charge of the Super Eagles, Rohr has faced criticism for overlooking players based in Nigeria for those in Europe.His employers have ordered him to now pick players from the domestic league, but Rohr has insisted only the best will make his squad.“I pick the best players and I don’t do it alone,” he said.“We have to take the best players no matter where they are coming from.“We have very good young players, so it’s difficult for the local players to break into the team.”
Kyle Juszczyk injury update: 49ers’ only fullback (MCL sprain) out 4-6 weeks Mitchell Trubisky injury update: Bears QB (shoulder) could return for Week 7 Related News Rudolph remains in concussion protocol with no recovery timetable, while Samuels had arthroscopic knee surgery Monday and is expected to be out a month.It’s the latest blow to Pittsburgh’s offense after the Steelers lost quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to a season-ending elbow injury in Week 2, though the team will get some much-needed rest during its Week 7 bye.The Steelers (1-4) are slated to visit the Chargers (2-3) at 8:20 p.m. ET Sunday. Another day, another injury in Pittsburgh, and James Washington is the latest casualty.According to NFL Media, which cited an unidentified source, the Steelers receiver is expected to miss “a few weeks” with a shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s overtime loss to the Ravens. A second-round pick of the Steelers in 2018, Washington had a season-high 52 receiving yards on three catches Sunday. He has nine catches for 140 yards on the season.Backup quarterback Mason Rudolph and receiver Jaylen Samuels were also injured Sunday against the Ravens, and both could be missing in action for multiple weeks. Ironically, Washington sustained his injury while catching a 26-yard pass on the play when Rudolph was knocked unconscious by Ravens safety Earl Thomas. Titans sign kicker Cody Parkey
Former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski shocked many when he announced his retirement earlier this year after just nine NFL seasons.Many have speculated Gronk may come out of retirement and suit up for New England in the future, including Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Patriots audition kicker Nick Rose in wake of Stephen Gostkowski’s injury Jets’ Sam Darnold ‘not worried’ about getting hit after bout with mono “We all love Gronk,” Kraft said. “We can always pray and hope.” Related News Kraft went on NFL Network on Thursday where he was asked about Gronk’s future. Antonio Brown suggests Patriots bring him back: ‘They may as well play me’ Kraft went on to say that Gronk has yet to officially file his retirement papers with the NFL which is a “good academic argument” and “hope” for the 30-year-old to return to football.#Patriots owner Robert Kraft on @nflnetwork just now: “We all love Gronk and I think the bottom line is, he hasn’t put his retirement papers in. We can always pray and hope …. That’s a good academic argument that there is hope for us still with Gronk.”— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 10, 2019Gronk played in 115 games over his nine seasons in the league amassing 7,861 receiving yards and 79 touchdowns on 561 catches.
NBA cancels Lakers, Nets media sessions for rest of tense China trip Celtics’ Enes Kanter on his criticism of Turkey: ‘How can I stay silent?’ The Bucks might have to open the season without their point guard. Eric Bledsoe is expected to miss two to three weeks after incurring a “small fracture” in his rib, The Athletic reported Friday. Bledsoe, entering his 10th year in the league, is coming off a season in which he averaged 15.9 points, 5.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game and made the All-Defensive first team alongside teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo. He missed only four games all of last season. Milwaukee has three preseason games remaining before its Oct. 24 season opener at Houston. Bledsoe left Wednesday’s preseason game against the Jazz in the middle of the second quarter and was initially diagnosed with a strained oblique. “It feels like it’s not that severe,” coach Mike Budenholzer said after the game, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “but I’m sure Troy (Flanagan, the team’s director of performance) and those guys will give me an update. … Just talking to Bled (it seemed positive) – I don’t know if you can trust Bled – Troy will be the truth-teller.” Related News
It is unjust to demand James have a position on China’s relationship with Hong Kong, or a particular position, as we noticed from many conservative commentators who scolded NBA players last week for their silence on the issue.Remember, the Dow Jones Industrial Average shot up 319 points on Friday, the gain primarily the result of news the United States and China had reached the first stage of a trade agreement. It’s hypocritical for the whole nation to be protecting its business with China while singling out one sports league, and those who work in it, and demanding they comport themselves differently.If James does not wish to speak out against China, that is his prerogative, regardless of his motivations. If he wants the world to respect his voice on those issues he does believe to be essential, though, he should acknowledge that others within the NBA’s sphere are entitled to expression of their beliefs, even if it inconveniences the league or LeBron’s Lakers. He had a week to think about it, and that probably made it worse. LeBron James attempted to stuff so much into a single statement to reporters, and yet he was compelled to return a while later and add another verse, and then another, through his Twitter account.And still he did not make entirely clear why he was bothered by the political statement made by Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, leaving others to parse James’ words — which, given how he has exalted himself, many are only too eager to do. “Yes, we all do have freedom of speech, but at times, there are ramifications for the negative that can happen when you’re not thinking about others and you only think about yourself,” James said Monday night. “I don’t want to get into a word or sentence feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke.”MORE: Explaining every angle of the NBA-China controversyHere, it appears James is directly challenging Morey’s standing to use his voice, amplified through a Twitter audience of 236,000 and sporting media certain to notice and multiply that number, to assert his belief that citizens of Hong Kong merit international support. “Fight For Freedom, Stand With Hong Kong” was the phrase Morey presented.This seems not an untenable position, but James is asserting Morey is not educated enough on the subject to proclaim it. If James were to present evidence he was more educated on the subject than Morey — as, for instance, I did with James in February of 2018, when he called the NCAA “corrupt” — that would be reasonable. Alas, James did not.”So many people could have been harmed, not just financially, but physically, emotionally, spiritually,” James continued. “So just be careful what we tweet and what we say and what we do — even though, yes, we do have freedom of speech, but there can be a lot of negative that comes with that, too.”LeBron James speaks for the first time since the NBA’s trip to China, says Rockets GM Daryl Morey was “misinformed” about the ramifications of his tweet, and “not educated about the situation.” Here are LeBron’s comments in full: pic.twitter.com/Rwjnchm2w3— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) October 15, 2019Now, James’ concern seems more personal, on multiple fronts. It happened that subsequent to Morey’s tweet, which appeared Oct. 4, the Lakers were scheduled for a preseason trip to China that included an exhibition game against the Nets. James appears to be arguing he was concerned for his safety, and that of his teammates, as the result of the furor Morey’s tweet unleashed.However, he was unwise enough to include the magic word: financially. Did James fear for his safety, or for his business? Given how quickly the NBA maneuvered to defuse the angst that resulted in China following Morey’s quickly deleted tweet, rushing to mitigate damage to a lucrative and growing market, and given that a story leaked awfully fast about the possibility diminished business in China could leech dollars from the league’s salary cap, it’s easy to see how the face of the league could be concerned about that reaction impacting his value.”Let me clear up the confusion,” James tweeted later. “I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences or the ramifications of the tweet. I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk about that.”My team and this league just went through a difficult week. I think people need to understand what a tweet or statement can do to others. And I believe nobody stopped and considered what would happen. Could have waited a week to send it.”MORE: Enes Kanter appears to take shots at LeBron JamesJames likely thought he was clarifying his position here, trying to emphasize the personal concern felt by him and his teammates by suggesting the tweet would have been less damaging if published, say, today. By attaching “this league” to the Lakers’ personal travails, however, again he opened the possibility for this to be interpreted strictly as a monetary matter. As that’s the most logical conclusion, and the one with the most evidentiary support, it figures to be what most believe.James’ predecessor as the world’s preeminent basketball player, Michael Jordan, famously stayed so clear of politics he declined to endorse a challenger to confessed segregationist Jesse Helms in a narrow 1990 North Carolina senate race. James has been far more comfortable in this arena, and he has done important work such as voicing concern over police violence following Eric Garner’s death in New York. But these latest statements will serve to undermine his credibility in future endeavors.
The FLEX position is going to another of the value wide receivers with Boyd, who is grossly mispriced at only $5,600. The matchup is tough against the Jaguars, but slot man Boyd should avoid coverage from Jalen Ramsey even if he plays, as Ramsey normally sticks almost exclusively on the outside. Boyd has seen at least six targets in every game this season, and he should bounce back nicely after a three catch, 10-yard performance last week against the Ravens. D/ST Tennessee Titans vs. Chargers ($4,200)I wish I could get up to the Bears at the defense spot, but I fell just short on salary, so I’ll be pivoting to the Titans who are playing at home against the Chargers. Los Angeles’ offense has been inconsistent this season, and its offensive line is a mess. I trust that Tennessee will be able to put some pressure on Philip Rivers in this game, forcing him into taking some sacks and possible turnover situations. WEEK 7 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerFanDuel Picks Week 7: NFL DFS example lineup CORE PLAY: QB Matt Ryan, Falcons vs. Rams ($7,900)Another week, another Ryan sighting in the core plays. Matty Ice has been a model of consistency this season, throwing for more 300 yards in every game in addition to throwing for multiple touchdowns in all but one game. The Falcons as a whole are struggling at 1-5, but it is not because of a lack of production out of their offense. This week, Ryan and the Falcons will return home to Atlanta to take on the Rams in a game that has shootout written all over it. The total for this game sits at 54, which is 3.5 points higher than the next closest game on the slate. The matchup with the Rams is incredibly favorable. They just placed their top corner Aqib Talbi on IR, and outside of Aaron Donald, they really don’t have much talent on the defensive side of the ball. The Rams have performed well against the lower-end quarterbacks that they’ve faced but allowed Jameis Winston (385 yards, four TDs) and Russell Wilson (268 yards, four TDs) to tear them apart. Ryan is priced up to $7,900, but that is still a nice value given the elite floor that he has in this matchup. WEEK 7 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endCORE PLAY: RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Lions ($8,300)This is a tricky week at running back unless some value opens up, possibly through the Rams if Todd Gurley (thigh) is ruled out. With that being said, I want to lock in as much guaranteed volume as I can at the position. This starts with Cook, who is coming into an ideal bounce-back spot against the Lions. Cook is coming off of his worst game of the season where he posted just 54 total yards against the Eagles. The matchup this week against the Lions is much softer after they allowed the combination of Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams to rush for 150 yards on Monday night. Sure, “Snacks” Harrison is one of the best run stoppers in the entire league, but the Lions’ linebackers are the big weakness of Detroit’s defense, which will spell trouble against an explosive back such as Cook who frequently gets to the second level. Cook is the first name that I’m clicking on in cash games and someone that I’m looking to play 20-30 percent of in my GPP lineups. WEEK 7 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPPRB Devonta Freeman, Falcons vs. Rams ($6,400)We are going all-in on the Falcons-Rams matchup. I’m starting the lineup off by going with a Falcons onslaught stack of Matt Ryan, Devonta Freeman, and Julio Jones. QB-RB stacks can be risky, but Freeman is seeing enough volume in the passing game (three TDs the past two weeks) to justify rostering him in the same lineup as Ryan.CORE PLAY: WR John Brown, Bills vs. Dolphins ($5,900)There are a couple of really nice value wide receivers on FanDuel this week. Tyler Boyd, Marvin Jones, Dante Pettis, Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Ridley, and Mohammed Sanu all stand out, but my favorite among the value plays at the position is Brown at his $5,900 price. Brown has established himself as the clear-cut top receiver on the Bills, and his skill set is a perfect match for quarterback Josh Allen’s deep throwing tendencies. The Bills are not only coming off their bye week but also have a matchup with the tanking Dolphins. Miami is pretty awful at every facet of the game, but its pass defense is especially weak, ranking 26th DvP against wide receivers. Brown could be in for a ceiling-type game given his high target share and a long average depth of target. I love Brown, especially on FanDuel because of the added emphasis on yards and touchdowns, and he makes for one of the best upside GPP plays on the slate. MORE WEEK 7 DFS: Top values | Lineup BuilderWR Julio Jones, Falcons vs. Rams ($8,200)Jones is coming off of a 100-yard receiving game and should feast on a Rams defense that will be without top cover corner Aqib Talib. WR Cooper Kupp, Rams @ Falcons ($7,800)Obviously, with three Falcons in the lineup, we’re going to want to run it back with a Rams player or two, and it’s no surprise that I’m using Kupp to do this. I also don’t mind Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, or even Darrell Henderson if Todd Gurley is ruled out, but Kupp is clearly the best option if you can afford him. MORE WEEK 7 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderCORE PLAY: TE Hunter Henry, Chargers @ Titans ($5,700)Henry made a surprise early return to the lineup last week against the Steelers and instantly made an impact in the offense with eight receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets. Playing on Sunday night made it so FanDuel could not adjust his salary for Week 7 in time to reflect his role in the offense, and his $5,700 price tag presents us with the best value play on the slate. I’m not in love with the matchup against a stout Titans defense, but it has struggled against tight ends this season, ranking in the bottom 10 in the league against the position. Expect Henry to be one of the highest-owned players on the slate, but his low price and high usage make him an awfully tough player to fade. FLEX Tyler Boyd, Bengals vs. Jaguars ($5,600) Cooper Kupp really let down daily fantasy football owners last week — especially us. Our core plays were looking pretty good with Matt Ryan, David Johnson and Austin Hooper, but then the Rams could barely move the ball. We’ll blame Jared Goff. For our Week 7 FanDuel core picks for NFL DFS GPP tournaments, we’ll hope to avoid that near goose-egg and hope to bounce back.If you’re new to this article, we pick four players every week we’ll be overweight in our lineup builds. Then, we give an example of how we’d fill in around them in tournaments. Our “Core Four” this week is Matt Ryan, Dalvin Cook, John Brown and Hunter Henry. This isn’t an “optimal lineup”, but it’s an example of one you could build if you start with our “Core Four”.
