Fantasy Football draft prep: Everything to know about Year 3 wide receivers to target from stars to sleepers

Last year was a bad season for third-year receivers. The Class of 2018 had far more busts than breakouts, and it was frustrating. Hopefully, the Class of 2019 will be better as third-year stars this season. Of the players we touted last year as third-year breakout receivers, only Calvin Ridley stepped up. D.J. Moore and D.J. Chark were disappointments, Courtland Sutton missed the entire year with a torn ACL and injuries and poor play also hampered Michael Gallup, Allen Lazard, Christian Kirk and Anthony Miller.

Fantasy Football Rankings 2021: Sleepers from football model that predicted A.J. Brown's big season

NFL training camps will begin soon, and owners will be watching closely after being deprived of offseason news by the pandemic last season.

Meanwhile, Justin Fields will likely begin the season on the bench behind Andy Dalton for the Bears, while Mac Jones could do the same behind Cam Newton for the Patriots. Where do all those rookie quarterbacks belong in the 2021 Fantasy football rankings?

2020 Tokyo Olympics odds, picks: Team USA Softball vs. Japan gold-medal game predictions from proven expert

Team USA was the gold standard after softball debuted in the Summer Games in 1996, winning each of the first three Olympic tournaments. It was knocked off its pedestal by Japan in 2008, settling for the silver medal, and has waited patiently for its chance at revenge since the sport was removed from the Olympic program immediately afterward. Softball returned in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and Team USA can reclaim its top standing when it takes on Japan in the gold-medal game on Tuesday. The Americans earned the distinction of being the "home" team by posting a 2-1 walk-off victory over the Japanese in their group-stage finale.

Fantasy Football Rankings 2021: Busts from proven model that called Smith-Schuster's disappointing season

Since a rookie season in which he led the NFL with 2,028 scrimmage yards and scored 15 touchdowns, Saquon Barkley hasn't lived up to the expectations of owners who spent a first-round pick on the Giants running back. Barkley missed three games and tallied just 1,441 scrimmage yards and eight scores in 2019, and then missed 14 games because of a torn ACL last year. Now that Barkley's healthy again, should you consider spending another early pick on a potential RB1, or will Barkley be among 2021 Fantasy football busts?

The Nationals have totaled just nine during their current four-game losing streak, which they look to halt Monday as they visit the National League East rival Phillies for the opener of a four-game series.

Tokyo 2020 features new sports and all the traditional competitions, but swimming and gymnastics will draw much of the attention in the coming days at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Team USA is starting to bring home some medals, and there are plenty of favorites who could add to the American haul in the swimming events. Katie Ledecky will try to beat Australian Ariarne Titmus in the women's 200-meter freestyle after falling just short in Sunday night's 400 free final. She also is the huge favorite in the women's 1,500-meter, while Team USA's Caeleb Dressel is the even-money favorite in the men's 100 free and Lilly King is the favorite in the women's 100-meter breaststroke.
