DraftKings Picks Week 3: NFL DFS lineup advice for daily fantasy football tournaments

Week 2 was a tough one for fantasy football owners, as injuries ravaged the league and knocked out some of the top-priced contributors in NFL DFS lineups. That said, this week’s slate features much more value because of the injuries, and with another week of games under our belts, it’s becoming easier to see exactly which matchups teams and players will be able to exploit. These quality matchups are something that we’re banking on in our Week 3 DraftKings lineup for GPP tournaments.

There are plenty of teams that are weak against receivers, including the Falcons, Cowboys, Seahawks, and Vikings, so that creates plenty of value at the position. We targeted one of the higher-projected scoring games involving those teams (Cowboys-Seahawks) and plucked some receivers from there. And with so many RBs out, it was easy to avoid spending up too much at the position to target players against two

Expert tips from using online auctions to advice for landlords

The UK lockdown was a difficult and uncertain time for the property sector. There is no rulebook to running a business during times of economic turbulence, especially when it comes to property, but there are tips and tricks that can help you along the way.

Where it all began

I first started developing properties in 1999 and worked on several projects in London before moving to Derbyshire in 2016 and starting a business venture with my sister, known as the Urban Sisters.

We take old, unloved buildings and convert them into desirable residential with a big focus on recycling and upcycling. Every project we work on is different. Each space is meticulously designed to feel unique and bespoke as our demographic is looking for individuality, expression, comfort, and great design – which is what we deliver.

Week 2 Daily Fantasy Advice: Focus on Cowboys-Falcons game

Special to Yahoo Sports

Whether you are playing in the biggest tournament of the week on Yahoo or prefer to play in smaller GPPs, there are some general GPP strategies that you can implement in contests of any size. These concepts include stacking, finding pivots off of popular players, and targeting players that won’t be on many rosters.

While it’s important to implement these into your lineup-building approach, the foundation of any tournament lineup is a solid core — usually players that you would use in cash games.

Stacks to Target

QB Matt Ryan, Falcons ($31)

WR Julio Jones, Falcons ($32)

RB Todd Gurley, Falcons ($24)

WR Michael Gallup, Cowboys ($19)

This will be the most popular game of the week, in terms of DFS rostered percentages, and for good reason — the over/under currently sits at 52.5 and it sets up to be a pass-happy affair. Atlanta threw over

A Corset Maker’s Advice to Other Small Business Owners During the Pandemic

Hayes Valley, the trendy San Francisco neighborhood that is the home to corset maker Dark Garden, saw a glimmer of its former vibrant self over Labor Day weekend, when its central artery, Hayes Street, was closed to car traffic. Part of a city-wide initiative to help revive small businesses during the pandemic, the Shared Streets six-week trial program seeks to create a safer space for walking, dining and shopping, and Hayes was the fourth street in San Francisco to become car-free.

Dark Garden owner and founder Autumn Adamme volunteered at the perimeters of the pedestrian-only zones, making sure all patrons coming to dine at outdoor tables or mill about Hayes Street were wearing masks. Unfortunately, the holiday weekend was marred by record 100-degree temperatures and smoke from hundreds of California wildfires.
