first_imgHello, Jacob Hollister. Please don’t be David Njoku. Be more like Ricky Seals-Jones, as a matter of fact. We’ve touted Hollister most of the second half in our tight end rankings, and our Week 16 PPR TE rankings see him placed among the elites. It’d normally be weird for us to want any tight end to be like RSJ, but after Seals-Jones scored two revenge-game TDs against the Cardinals, fantasy owners in championship games would like to see Hollister match that output.Otherwise, though, the names in the top-10 are the usual suspects (minus Evan Engram, who would be in that top level if not for his nagging foot injury that got him onto Injured Reserve). Most likely, you’ve made it to fantasy championship week thanks to a solid TE (or a stream-against-the-Cardinals strategy). If you have a stud, the best strategy is just to play him. WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIf you’re looking for a stream, though, and Hollister is already accounted for, the first try would be O.J. Howard. With receivers dropping like flies with bad hamstrings in Tampa Bay, Howard saw a season-high eight targets in Week 15 and probably will see a similar level of usage in Week 16 against the Texans. You could also give Dallas Goedert or Jonnu Smith a chance after they both had five catches in Week 15 (Smith added an impressive 57-yard run to showcase his athleticism).WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiverTyler Higbee might be a big question for a few of you. He’s balled out the past few weeks, and if you’ve been riding that production you might be playing for a title. To be frank, the San Francisco matchup in Week 16 is a bad one. But it seems like Jared Goff will keep throwing to Higbee, and if Hollister and Howard are both owned in your league, it’s probably fine to stick with the guy who’s had three straight 100-yard games.WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPThere will surely be some fantasy matchups that come down to Travis Kelce on Sunday night, and with Saturday action in Week 16, as well, there’s a lot to look forward to.

first_img0Shares0000Michel Platini, pictured in 2015, was arrested Tuesday in connection with a corruption investigation into the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar © AFP/File / FABRICE COFFRINIPARIS, France, Jun 18 – The banned ex-UEFA chief Michel Platini was arrested Tuesday in connection with a criminal investigation into the award of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar.The French football legend elected to lead European football’s governing body in 2007 was taken into custody by French anti-corruption police investigating the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to the gas-rich Gulf state. Qatar was named to host the World Cup in a decision that triggered controversy over its suitability amid allegations of corruption that ultimately sparked FIFA’s worst ever scandal five years later.France’s Financial Crimes Prosecutors Office (PNF) opened a preliminary investigation in 2016 into allegations of corruption, conspiracy and influence peddling surrounding FIFA’s award of the World Cup to Qatar and also the 2018 tournament to Russia.According to Blatter, Qatar won hosting rights as a result of a deal with the French, derailing FIFA’s own “diplomatic arrangement” whereby hosting rights would go to Russia in 2018 and then to the United States four years later.The French investigation centres on alleged French intervention linked to Platini and former president Nicolas Sarkozy.According to the specialist magazine France Football, a “secret meeting” took place on November 23, 2010 at the Elysee Palace in Paris between Sarkozy, Qatar’s then-Prince (now Emir) Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, and Platini, at that time both UEFA president and vice-president of FIFA.Just over a week later, FIFA awarded Qatar hosting rights for the 2022 tournament.Platini has made no secret of his support for Qatar but denies he was influenced by Sarkozy, whose advisor for sport, Sophie Dion, was also arrested along with Platini.“It was time to give them the World Cup. I am for that. It’s my conviction,” he said at the time.Claude Gueant, Sarkozy’s erstwhile chief of staff and former interior minister, was also called in for questioning Tuesday by France’s Anti-Corruption Office of the Judicial Police.The decision to award the event to Qatar ultimately led to a wider corruption probe that led to the overthrow of Blatter and Platini and the arrest of senior FIFA figures.Platini, 63, led UEFA until 2015 when he was banned from football for four years for ethics violations including receiving a two-million Swiss francs (1.8 million euros, $2 million) payment from the disgraced former head of FIFA Sepp Blatter.Qatar has been accused of buying votes in its bid to stage the World Cup and a subsequent report by US independent investigator Michael Garcia unearthed an array of suspect financial dealings, many linked to Sandro Rosell, the ex-Barcelona president who served as a consultant for Qatar.Platini, a triple Ballon d’Or winner, was expected to succeed Blatter as FIFA president in 2016 before his fall from grace. He has been battling to clear his name ever since.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
