Fantasy Updates: Is Robert Woods playing Monday night? (Updated)

August 14, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgAlthough McVay wouldn’t commit to Woods playing, he described the wideout as “looking good.” Woods had returned from his personal matter Thursday and resumed practicing with the Rams, which sounds like enough time to be ready to go for Monday night.If you have held out this long on Woods, you’re certainly playing him if he’s active. If Woods were to be held out of action, Josh Reynolds would run as the Rams’ No. 3 WR behind Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks. Reynolds would be available in most leagues to pick up if you needed a last-minute replacement for Woods.Reynolds may be owned in deeper leagues, and if Woods is out and that’s the case, your best bet is Ravens’ WR Willie Snead (or if for your FLEX spot, you could try Baltimore TE Nick Boyle). It would truly be a surprise again, though, if Woods were to be held out after participating in a couple days of practice. Robert Woods was a surprise inactive last week due to personal reasons, and with the Rams playing the Ravens on Monday Night Football, the most recent reports are from Sean McVay on Saturday saying he wouldn’t fully commit to Woods playing. The fact that Woods isn’t questionable on the official injury report has to be taken as a good sign, but until actives/inactives come out, it’s hard to know for sure whether L.A. will have its top possession receiver or if Josh Reynolds will be thrust into more duty.The official active/inactive report drops about 6:50 p.m. ET, and we’ll have updates through that time here and on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.

Negotiations Over; Communities now debating latest Fair Share offer

first_imgIt’s also important to remember, three different regional groups were represented at the negotiating table, but an agreement must be unanimously approved by all the Peace communities they represent. Again we note the new talks were initiated by the province, which had earlier sought to break the existing 15 year deal signed in 2005, in order to address falling revenues in the wake of the oil and gas industry lull, associated with the dramatic drop in the price of crude oil.It had put in place an April 30th deadline for negotiating a new 15 year deal, with “more affordable terms” and an expiration date of 2030.- Advertisement -That however, drew strong regional objections, especially from Fort St. John and Taylor, who argued it would mean regional revenues totalling six million dollars less than anticipated this year, and potentially totalling 70 million less by 2019.Then came word on the aforementioned deadline date, the province had modified it position and had agreed to the region receiving 46 million dollars for the current calendar year, as required under the terms of the existing agreement.With that done negotiations resumed on terms of the new deal with the province presumably still seeking to cap the annual grants at 40 million a year, instead of allowing them to grow at the rate of industry.It remains to be seen if the deal now being considered by the regional jurisdictions is still fixed on that proposal, or a newly negotiated alternative.Advertisementlast_img read more
