Local teams, stars congratulate Elena Delle Donne on historic second WNBA MVP award

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

Elena Delle Donne is, once again, the Most Valuable Player in the WNBA. She's the first player in WNBA history to earn the honor with two different teams.

Fantasy Football: Start David Montgomery vs. Redskins

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

It's getting really difficult to justify starting any Chicago Bears skill players in fantasy football after two dull weeks on offense led by Mitch Trubisky. Trubisky has been ordinary so far in 2019, and that may be an overstatement. He's averaging just 174 passing yards per game and hasn't used his legs nearly as much as we saw in 2018.

Yahoo DFS Football: Week 3 Picks

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

TOURNAMENTS (GPP – GUARANTEED PRIZE POOL) QB: Dak Prescott, DAL vs. MIA ($39): Prescott certainly doesn't look like a deal as this slate's most expensive quarterback at $39, but he'll be at home against a Dolphins team that has looked historically inept through two games, getting outscored 102-10 without yet having to go on the road. Meanwhile, Dak's off to a blistering start this season with a completion percentage of 82.3 percent, 674 yards and a 7:1 TD:INT through two weeks. Even if the Cowboys choose to take their foot off the gas late, what Prescott does up until that point could be enough to lead the position in scoring this week.

The Chicago Bears are entering Week 3's Monday night game against the Washington Redskins with a defense that, to no one's surprise, is ranked among the NFL's elite once again.

Remember when folks wanted a free-spending owner like Dan Snyder for the Bears? No, really, they did

Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

About this time 20 years ago, Daniel Snyder was taking over as owner of the Washington Redskins. This came several months after then-Chairman Michael McCaskey had made the Bears an NFL laughingstock with the cataclysmic mishandling of hiring Dave McGinnis as head coach (and no, the real story had nothing to do with that premature press release). McCaskey was "demoted" to chairman only and Ted Phillips succeeded him as president.

Redskins sign LB Spence, place Rodgers-Cromartie on IR

Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

The Washington Redskins have signed free agent outside linebacker Noah Spence and placed cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday. Rodgers-Cromartie, who has seven tackles and no interceptions in two games this season, suffered a leg injury on Sunday during the Redskins' 31-21- loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Spence, a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2016 NFL Draft, joins a team in need of a pass rush after recording only two sacks in two games, the second-fewest total in the league.
