Week Four Fantasy Football 2017

It’s hard to believe that the long awaited football season is already a quarter of the way done! The season has flown by and we haven’t had enough time to process all that is happening. Here are some of the biggest surprise fantasy breakouts of the first quarter:

The biggest breakout of the season by far has been Kareem Hunt. He came out strong the first game of the 2017 season against the Patriots like a tank, barreling past the once strong Patriots defense. He already has a total of 501 yards, and four touchdowns, averaging over seven yards per touch. On top of his rushing yards, Hunt has 157 yards of receiving, averaging 13 yards per catch. This rookie has shocked the nation with his strength, quickness, and skill. With Hunt’s young energy and Alex Smith’s veteran experience, the Chiefs have fought their way to an undefeated quarter.

Another running back breakout of the season has been Todd Gurley. He and Jared Goff have to lead the Rams to a record of 3-1, which is a dramatic change from their previous record of 4-12. After a slow two first games, where he recorded 44 and 80 yards, Gurley picked it up and rushed for 113 and 121 yards in Week Three and Four. Last game, Gurley lead the game with 121 yards of rushing and lead the team with 94 yards of receiving and recorded a touchdown. He currently has a total of 362 yards of rushing and 232 yards of receiving. In the beginning of the season, fans were expecting to see another bust of a season, but Todd Gurley proved them all wrong.

Another young player that took us all by surprise is the Vikings wide receiver, Stefon Diggs. The fifth-round draft pick is currently leading the league in receiving yards and has four touchdowns.  While most wide receivers would struggle when they switch quarterbacks in the middle of the season, Diggs has thrived, receiving for 271 yards in the past two games while catching passes from backup Case Keenum. Most players his size allow themselves to be roughed up by corners and safeties, but Diggs has found a way to use it to his advantage.

There is another Vikings player that has been getting attention, and that is rookie running back Dalvin Cook. Cook has 354 yards of rushing and 100 yards of receiving. He is averaging five yards per carry and has two touchdowns. He has a total of 74 carries, making him one of the running backs with the most touches in the league. He has not yet been able to repeat his stunning Week One performance, but he has been consistently solid for the Vikings. Sadly, the young player tore his ACL in his Week Four game against the Lions, so he will miss the rest of the season to heal his injury.

The top performing tight end in the league is Zach Ertz. He has 326 yards and a touchdown and is fifth in the league in receiving yards. He is averaging almost 13 yards per touch while also being one of the league’s best downfield blockers. In three out of his four games, he has recorded 80 or more yards of receiving. Playing with receivers Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Torrey Smith, and pass-catching running back Darren Sproles, no one expected Zach Ertz to be the first option receiving, but he is leading the Eagles team on offense.

Sadly, there are just as many busts as breakouts. Here are some of the players that may have disappointed you this quarter:

The most notable underperformer is Cardinals running back David Johnson.  The player that people were depending on got injured early in the season, making many people with the first overall pick in their league’s draft disenchanted. After a season that features 1,200 over rushing yards and 870 receiving yards with 20 touchdowns, this season is a big step down. While the tragic future of his season is not his fault, he is disappointing many fantasy players.

A bust that has no excuses is cowboys receiver Dez Bryant. He is 34th in the league with only 212 receiving yards. His season long catch was small 36 yard pass with only one other pass over 20 yards. Bryant be an elite deep threat in the league, putting safeties on edge. Now, however, he is settling for short quick passes and is not using his speed like he did last season.

A running back that has not met the expectations of fans is our very own Marshawn Lynch. He is 33rd in the league for rushing yards with 151 on 45 attempts. He is only three yards ahead of Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson and ten ahead of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. He is averaging just over three yards per carry with only one touchdown. He also has no carries for over 20 yards. Everyone had big hopes or the Oakland native and the Raiders, but sadly they have not performed as well as expected.

I know it’s sad to see the long awaited season go by so quickly, but there is still a lot of great football to come. Good luck in Quarter Two!

Week Three Fantasy Football 2017

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.

Week Three was the most exciting week yet. It was full of great teams just squeaking by some trash teams: the Colts barely beat the Browns 31-28; the Packers beat the Bengals 27-24; and the Patriots beat the Texans 36-33. There are also a great number of breakout players that played exceptionally. In all, it was just a great week for football.

Luckily, there were not many injuries in Week Three. Kelvin Benjamin is questionable for Week Four after hurting his knee during the loss against the Saints. The MRI revealed no structural damage to the knee, but the Panthers are hesitant about letting him play. Tyler Eifert (back) and John Ross (knee) missed last game and are questionable for next week’s game against the Browns. Julio Jones left the game briefly with a back injury, but he is expected to return next week and continue practicing.

Here are some of the breakouts of Week Three, and there are quite a few of them:

Russell Wilson a sensational game against the Titans. He threw for 373 yards and rushed for an extra 26 of the team’s total of 69. He also threw for four touchdowns to four different receivers. He averaged almost 13 yards per reception. He also had 49 pass attempts, illustrating how much faith Pete Carroll has in him to lead the team in the absence of Thomas Rawls.

Brandin Cooks was terrific against the Texans on Sunday. He had 131 yards of receiving, averaging over 26 yards per reception. He also caught two touchdowns, one of which put the Patriots up 36-33 with less than 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter. He showed off his focus, coordination, and awareness as he barely kept his toes in bounds before tumbling out. After a disappointing game against his old team, the Saints, he was determined to prove that he can step up and fill the void that Julian Edelman left open, and he succeeded.

Eli Manning played incredible in the loss to the Eagles this Sunday. He threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns while throwing at a completion percentage of 74%. He also threw a 77 yard bomb to Sterling Shepard. He gave almost four receivers 45 or more yards of receiving. Also, the Giants had a total of 49 yards of rushing combined, which means that passing is the main offensive strategy. This will result in more passing plays, therefore more yards, and touchdowns.

T.Y. hilton played out of this world on Sunday, taking advantage of the garbage Browns secondary. He was a monster with 153 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 22 yards per reception, and only missed two out of his nine targets. His performance is especially impressive given that he wasn’t playing with his normal quarterback; instead of catching passes from the great quarterback Andrew Luck, he played this incredible game while catching passes from the backup Jacoby Brissett. He hasn’t played terrible in his first two games, but he did not play like the elite wide receiver he just proved he is capable of being.

Another receiver that played like crazy without his usual quarterback is Stefon Diggs. He came off his disappointing Week Two game hard and strong. Diggs had 173 yards of receiving and caught two touchdowns to push the Vikings past the Buccaneers. He had eight receptions and was targeted 11 times. He had almost 80 yards more than the second leading receiver in the game. Weighing just over 190 pounds, Diggs is using his speed to dash past defensive backs and using it to his advantage.

Demarco Murray finally decided to come out of hibernation! After a completely embarrassing start to the season, where he rushed for 69 yards in both weeks combined, Murray came out and bulldozed the rock hard Seahawks defense. He rushed for 115 yards on 14 carries, averaging over 10 yards per touch. He also ran for a 75 yard touchdown, making the Seahawks defense look like they were on rollerblades. He is still fighting for carries with Derrick Henry, but after this game, it looks like he will be the solid RB1.

Another notable superstar was Kirk Cousins. He threw for 365 yards against the fiasco that was the Raiders defense on Sunday. He also threw for three touchdowns to three different receivers. He had a monstrous completion percentage of 83% and averaged almost 15 yards per completion. He threw zero interceptions and gave four of his receivers 50 yards or more. I have always considered Cousins an elite quarterback in the league, and this game may make others see him that way as well.

Chris Thompson confused us all as to what position he plays with his game on Sunday. While he only had 38 yards of rushing, he lead the game with 150 yards of receiving and a receiving touchdown. He only had eight carries all game, and it is unclear whether they will implement him more as a back or a receiver who can catch passes out of the backfield. Either way, he has proven himself to be a crucial member of the Redskins offense.

There are so many players that played remarkable in Week Three, but sadly there is not enough space to include them all. It would be a crime to not acknowledge their excellence, so here are some honorable mentions: Todd Gurley with 149 all purpose yards and three touchdowns; Dalvin Cook with 169 all purpose yards and a touchdown; Pierre Garcon with 142 yards of receiving; Kareem Hunt with 172 yards of rushing and a touchdown; Larry Fitzgerald with 149 yards of receiving and a touchdown; Jordan Howard with 164 all purpose yards and two touchdowns; Case Keenum with 369 yards and three touchdowns; and of course, Tom Brady with his incredible 378 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions.

Here are some of the busts of Week Three:

Literally anyone on the Ravens. That is all there is to say about that.

Derek Carr, Marshawn Lynch, and Amari Cooper all did not play up to their standards against the mediocre Redskins defense. Carr threw for only 118 yards and two interceptions, one of which was his first throw of the game. Lynch only rushed for 18 yards on six carries with no touchdowns. Cooper had a mere 6 yards of receiving with one reception and five targets. I would not be worried about those three later in the season though. Every team has their atrocious games. I believe that they can bounce back strong next week.

Dez Bryant is completely underperformed against the Cardinals on Sunday night. He had 12 yards of receiving and was only targeted twice all game. One target was for a gain of 15 yards, and the other was for a loss of three. He struggled against the rock solid Cardinals secondary and was visibly agitated. The problem with players with as much emotion and passion as Bryant, is they often fall apart when someone gets into their head.

Week Three amazed football fans with its number of breakout stars. If you have any of these people on your team but are afraid of their inconsistency, just remember what they are capable of doing and maybe take a risk in Week Four.

The School’s Trips

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


Email This Story






Students were highly anticipating the release of school for spring break, but it seemed that a handful of students took their leave a few days early. The School typically hosts trips over spring break, and this year, there were three different destinations: Ashland, Peru, and Hawaii.

 

1) Why did you want to go to Ashland?

I have loved theater ever since I was very young and have a season pass to a local production company, Cal Shakes. Thus, I am very interested in the world class plays presented in Ashland and Shakespeare in general. I actually have been going to Ashland for two years prior to this, but I went with my family and not the school. I have relatives that live in Ashland, so I can catch up with them there. I went to the school this time as I wanted to experience it with people my age this time, and I have many friends who were going. I will be back this summer to see more plays with my family though. Also, I took Shakespeare with Dr. Enelow, and one of the plays that we discussed I got to see live (King Henry IV part 1).

 

2) What did you do?

We saw 4 plays and had meetings with 2 different actors where we got to ask them questions. The rest of the time was freeform, and we got almost complete freedom.

 

3) Who ran the trip?

Stevie, Ms. Math, and Mr. Barankin

 

4) How many people went?

13 people. Sophia Maxine Kojima, Simone Stevens, Xena Wolf, Adriana Celaya, Avery Lemoine, Alycia Filoteo, Blythe Rinehart-Pimentel, Eva Keker, Kate Van Riper, La’a Anthony, Sydney Stewart, Michaela Thomas, and Tara Crymble.

 

5) What were some takeaways you had?

  1.  a) While most of us gave a standing ovation to every play, the Barankin family was super picky about what they would stand for.
  2.  b) There are some dang good plays in Ashland.
  3.  c) If you’re going you NEED to see King Henry IV part 1

 

English teachers Stevie Kaplan, ___ Math, and former teacher Mr. Barankin led a group of 13 people to Ashland, Oregon, where the students watched a series of four plays and had the opportunity to ask a couple actors questions. Junior Simone Stevens, a big fan of theater, recalls King Henry IV Part I as one of the favorite plays she watched during the trip.   Other than watching the plays, the students were free to explore the area on their own.  

Junior Simone Stevens is no stranger to Ashland, as she has gone for two years prior to her visit over spring break, and as a fan of theater, she highly recommends watching King Henry IV Part I.

Advice to Second Semester Juniors

Dear Juniors,

 

You feel tired, stressed, over-worked, and overwhelmed. Days have begun to blend together, school to sports to homework to sleep to school, and you are smack in the middle of it all. Having recently completed Junior year at the School, I know how you’re feeling, and I’m here to help. The following is a compilation of advice, from a previously over-worked and overwhelmed Junior, for how to complete the remainder of the year as smoothly and successfully as possible.

First, find a space where you work well. For me, this space is the Orinda Public Library. I’m no physicist (Bio and Neuro all the way!), but I truly believe that time passes slower within the library’s walls. Assignments that would normally take an hour are done within minutes. I work best with a table, a lamp, a chair, earplugs, and silence. Find your place, whether it’s your bed with Spotify in the background, or your kitchen table among your family members.

Next, sleep. I’ve completed dozens of school weeks on four to five hours of sleep per night. It’s possible, but it’s more stressful and less efficient. Although working until one or two a.m. allows for more homework time, it’s ultimately not worth it. The curriculum may seem insurmountable, but it is not so vast as to require keeping such late hours. You can go to bed at ten or eleven p.m. every night; it just takes discipline, prioritization, and organization. I recently started using an app called Sleep Cycle, which allows you to track different characteristics of your sleep including length and quality. Moreover, you can set daily “sleep notes” to fill out right before going to bed (these only take ten seconds) including eating habits, water intake, and athletic activities. Sleep notes both help determine if certain factors of your day are affecting how you sleep and serve as positive reinforcement. For example, one of my sleep notes is “Productive and Efficient,” and it always feels really good to be able to click “yes” after a busy day. I’d definitely recommend giving the app a try, plus it’s free!

Work around your commitments (literally). If you had plans to see your friend but haven’t finished your math homework, bring it to their house (they probably haven’t done it either). If you’re going to a concert on a school night, read your Western Civ passage on Bart. Studying with friends or out of your normal spaces is not always as successful, but you may find that it works for you.

Hydrate. Between all of your commitments, you are undoubtedly exhausted, so give your body what it needs. Try to drink eight cups (64 oz.) (two nalgenes) of water every day. Your mood, physical and mental fatigue, and efficiency will improve. Bring a water bottle to every class.

Take your new responsibilities seriously, such as standardized testing, APs, and college workshops. These duties constitute the main difference between Sophomore and Junior Year. The amount of work does not dramatically increase; it’s all the extra stuff that you have to do on top of it that makes school harder. It’s easy to put such duties off, especially when some of it may seem superfluous; however, all your dedication will pay off. It’s the small things that lay the foundation for what is to come.

One successful way to tackle Junior year is to establish a routine, which has been the main focus of this article thus far. Routines, however, can quickly become overbearing. Many students feel guilty or restless when they are not working, even if they are not behind. So breathe. Relax. Take a moment. Not only will you feel better, but you will probably be more productive afterwards than if you had studied the whole time.

Finally, as recently embodied by rising NBA star Joel Embiid, “trust the process.” Junior year is meant to be difficult and crazy. You’ve already completed over half of it and are all more capable than you imagine. You’ve got this! Hang in there.

 

Sincerely,

Zack

Plastic bottles are being sold around the world every single day.  They are easily attainable in grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations.  However, there has been a recent concern about the safety of these water bottles. In fact, there could be a connection between drinking out of plastic water bottles and contracting cancer.

There are three hazards commonly found in plastic water bottles: Bisphenol A (BPA), Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and Phthalates. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical that plastic water bottle companies put into their bottles to prevent the soft bottles from cracking. However, this chemical can leach into the water when exposed to heat.  It is recognized as a cause of ovarian, prostate, and breast cancers. In addition, Bisphenol A (BPA) has been found to affect fetuses, infants and children’s brains, and prostate glands.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is another chemical compound that is used in plastic water bottles.  This chemical is free from Bisphenol A (BPA) but also has some health risks.  The water bottles have some fecal matter, saliva, and food residues in the plastic so they are hazardous when the bottles are re-used. This is a safety issue, but could be easily solved by tossing the plastic bottles into the recycling.  

Phthalates is another chemical found in plastic water bottles used to make plastic flexible.  This chemical also leaks into the water if it is there for a long period of time.  This could have some deadly side-effects: liver cancer, testicular atrophy, and sterility in males. Do you want to have kids? Don’t drink water from a plastic bottle.

It seems as if the use of plastic bottles is a fad of the past. Since recent research has unearthed some shocking evidence, I believe that more people will be aware of the dangers of chemicals leaking into their water and just toss their bottles into the recycling. The question remains: Should the School be selling plastic water bottles to its students? A good replacement for the plastic water bottles are glass water bottles, and they are a sustainable option, too.

Fake News (believe me, not us)

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.

Fake news and how to discern what news can be trusted is a hot button issue in the United States and around the world, especially in light of President Donald Trump’s own accusations directed towards the media. President Trump stated while he was running for office that he was “not running against crooked Hillary Clinton, but running against the crooked media.” His statements against the mainstream media have raised questions as to what news stories or outlets are credible. The Global Online Academy course on fake news is an interesting and accessible opportunity to explore the question of how to get reliable information through the media, an institution that is supposed to serve the public.

 

The course will be examining how certain news sources are biased in their political preference and how their bias can be harmful in the search for accurate information. Political bias in the news can create “expected answers” or information that is tailored to a certain point of view. Many feel that getting news that doesn’t have a political spin to it is nearly impossible. In order to find the something more neutral, one often has to check numerous sources. To this end however, it is often hard to find information that pieces together, meaning that different sources can provide entirely different answers or solutions to a common issue or event.

 

Although being in the classroom for this kind of an intensive course would be ideal, the teachers of the course are well versed in their curriculum and use every tool at their disposal to make the class more engaging. The lead teacher for the fake news course, Tina Bessias, is an English teacher at Durham Academy in North Carolina and is fully committed to all of her students, no matter where they live. Furthermore, another advantage of being in a GOA course is that there are students from different parts of the United States and different parts of the world. This is particularly valuable for a study on Fake News as we are able to engage with students that have different ideas and experiences shaped by the places that they live. Fake news is not limited by state or international borders, so why should the fake news course be?
