RotoExperts: Division Final Fantasy Rankings

Sure, the question remains about whether Mike Reilly is worth $14,000 (yes), yet the biggest question entering Division Finals weekend is whether Marcus Thigpen is worthy of a roster spot. Thigpen rushed for 169 yards and a touchdown in Saskatchewan’s win over Ottawa last weekend, earning 24.4 Fantasy points. However, the question lingering over the Roughriders’ running back will be if either Cameron Marshall ($5,394) and/or Trent Richardson ($4,000) will return to the roster for Sunday’s matchup against the Argonauts.

For now, we suggest keeping Thigpen in play as he does have the hot hand in the Saskatchewan backfield, yet Edmonton’s C.J. Gable ($8,367) and Toronto’s James Wilder ($7,935) are the backs of choice this weekend. Gable ran for 106 yards and pair of scores in Sunday’s West Semi-Final win over Winnipeg, while Wilder, a Rookie of the Year finalist, finished fifth in the league in rushing despite the fact he didn’t gain the starting job for good until Week 13.

Calgary’s Jerome Messam ($4,275) could be a bargain if the Stampeders make him the focal point of the offence, while teammate Roy Finch ($4,477) has the potential to deliver Fantasy points at a high volume without even touching the ball from scrimmage.

Ray and the Argos will be well rested to take on the Riders after a bye to the Eastern Finals (Johany Jutras/Argos)

The majority of Fantasy owners will go toward Reilly or Toronto’s Ricky Ray ($10,158) at pivot, as both have the ability and the receiving corps to exceed 20 Fantasy points. Saskatchewan’s Kevin Glenn ($6,579) looked sharp in the East Semi-Final win over Ottawa, but will have to keep his momentum going forward against Toronto. Calgary’s Bo Levi Mitchell ($7,912) wasn’t the high-scoring quarterback he was during last season’s Most Outstanding Player campaign, yet he’s capable of rewarding Fantasy owners with a vintage effort, one he might need if the Eskimos’ run defence steps up to slow down Messam.

Receiver is deep with talent, headlined by Eskimos wideout Brandon Zylstra ($7,944) and Argos playmaker S.J. Green ($6,151). All four teams playing this weekend sport top-flight receiving corps, making the depth at the position stronger than it was last weekend. With Rookie of the Year candidate Marken Michel ($4,112) returning from injury and Marquay McDaniel ($4,003) also set to return, the Stamps’ receiving unit makes Mitchell a potential sleeper. Toronto’s Armanti Edwards ($3,994) and Anthony Coombs ($2,721) are each flying under the radar.

On the defensive side of things, Calgary’s unit carries the top salary at $5,605, while Saskatchewan ($5,156) is second. Going all-in on either Reilly or Ray would most likely mean Fantasy owners who did so would be looking at higher-risk defences in Toronto ($3,788) or Edmonton ($3,711).

Russians ‘used Pokemon Go to sow division’ in run-up to US presidential election

A Russian-linked account reportedly used the popular video game Pokemon Go to draw attention to alleged police brutality in the United States.

A report by CNN adds another detail to the emerging portrait of Russian efforts to shape public opinion and foment discord in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

After American intelligence agencies concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin had launched a wide-ranging campaign to “undermine public faith in the US democratic process”, Facebook revealed that Russian entities had purchased thousands of advertisements intended to widen divisions around contentious issues like race and gun rights.

Among the topics reportedly addressed was the Black Lives Matter movement, which seeks to draw attention to African-Americans dying at the hands of police officers. According to CNN, one of the artificial accounts Facebook has taken down was entitled “Don’t Shoot Us” and was used to disseminate information about incidents of police brutality.

The effort reportedly enlisted Pokemon Go, a game in which players use their smartphones to “catch” digital creatures superimposed on the real world. CNN found that Don’t Shoot Us encouraged users to play near sites of reported police violence and to name their Pokemon “with a US police brutality victim’s name”.

Niantic, the company behind Pokemon Go, said in a statement that “our game assets were appropriated and misused in promotions by third parties without our permission“ and that ”our platform was in no way being used“ because players can’t use the app to share information with other players. 

Facebook did not respond to a request to confirm that Don’t Shoot Us was among the suspended accounts.

Congressional investigators are keenly focused on the role social media platforms may have played in helping to disseminate Russian-generated content. Representatives from Facebook, Google and Twitter have been invited to testify on the matter in an upcoming open hearing.

In an interview on Thursday with Axios, Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said Congress should publicly release the Russian-linked ads the social media giant has turned over.

“Things happened on our platform in this election that should not have happened, especially troubling foreign interference in a democratic election,” Ms Sandberg said.

The Division 1.7: Release date set for PS4, Xbox One and PC update | Gaming | Entertainment

The development team have now laid out their plans on when they hope to deploy the latest update for the Tom Clancy shooter.

The Division 1.7 release date will be announced this week, with Ubisoft confirming that they hope to have it primed for mid-August.

This will likely be announced during one of the scheduled live streams that will be hosted on Twitch later this week.

One of the big additions coming with The Division 1.7 will be the launch of the first outbreak event, which comes with its own rewards.

A message from Ubisoft explains: “The first Global Event, Outbreak, will be available when Update 1.7 is live, plus or minus an hour or two.

“The available Classified sets from this event are Deadeye, Final Measure, and Lone Star. 

“Based on player feedback, Outbreak’s Contamination has been tuned down as well. Don’t forget the NinjaBike Backpack is in the general loot pool for 1.7.”

Outbreak adds extra headshot damage and a toxic effect to Cleaner attacks, with the idea that all enemy factions are afflicted with a disease.

This is currently live on the PC PTS, while a number of other changes have also been worked on.

“Classified caches earned from Global Events have been improved to drop two items every time,” Ubisoft reveal. 

“The drop rates are as follows: a 45% chance for a Classified gear item, a 43.5% chance for a normal gear set item, and an 11.5% chance for an Exotic. 

“There is also a 12.5% chance to earn an additional third item, with a 90% chance it’ll be a Classified item and a 10% chance it’ll be Exotic.

“The previous SASG shotgun changes from PTS3 will make it into 1.7, but no more changes are scheduled at the moment. 

“We are still monitoring shotguns with Cronusmax in mind, and we want to remind players that we acknowledge this as one of the current issues.

“We are doing in-depth investigations to identify causes of in-game lag. We are hoping to address specific examples on next week’s State of the Game after more investigation, so keep the feedback rolling.”

Expect more news on the official Division update launch to be confirmed later this week, with Thursday, August 10 a possible date for new information to be shared.
