While there’s no doubt about the fact that the world is a little strange at the moment, there is still one thing that we can all rely on — the fantasy football season. The 2020 NFL Draft couldn’t have come at a better time for those spending more and more time inside, as this has given football fans the chance to truly appreciate the biggest fantasy winners. Yes, these are some big names…
Leonard Fournette — Jacksonville Jaguars
If you want a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars to take your team up a notch, then Leonard Fournette could be your go-to guy. This RB1 came out on top during the 2020 draft, and while it’s been rumored that he may be on the trade market, he’s sticking to his team for the time being.
Allen Lazard — Green Bay Packers
Not only did Allen Lazard become one of the winners within the 2020 Fantasy Draft, but he also became one of the winners within the Green Bay Packers as a whole. The WR3/4 became the number two wideout — with only Davante Adams in front of him. So, you could say he was a big deal.
Dak Prescott — Dallas Cowboys
The NFL 2020 Draft has given Dak Prescott the chance to enter into elite fantasy football territory, as this quarterback came out as a real winner. At 6’2” and leaner and meaner than ever, he’s definitely a great new addition to the fantasy world.
Justin Jefferson — Minnesota Vikings
As a rising star for many years, this might not come as a surprise to some. With this new role in the draft, Justin now has the chance to really make his mark within the Minnesota Vikings. He may be a rookie, but he’s expected to make his way to the top in no time.
The 2020 NFL Draft Fantasy winners have certainly given us all something to talk about.
The tragic death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center has caused days of protests and even overnight curfews. Two NBA teams paid tribute to Wright before their game in Minneapolis, which ended up being postponed for 24 hours.
Paying Tribute to Daunte Wright
The Minnesota Timberwolves and the Brooklyn Nets finally took the court against each other after having their game postponed for 24 hours. However, before the NBA game started, there was a moment of silence to pay tribute to Daunte Wright.
The Timberwolves even took to social media to bring more attention to Wright and the tragedy that occurred. The team let their followers know on Twitter that despite them having a game that night, they won’t be posting their usual content as they want justice for Daunte Wright.
Wright was pulled over for a traffic violation and later wrongfully shot by the officer who meant to use her taser instead. The tension in nearby Minneapolis was already high due to the wrongful killing of George Floyd, just over a year ago.
NBA Players Stand up for Justice
Josh Okogie, a guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves, said that these deaths are happening too frequently. He added that people have to be held accountable and that the conversation needs to continue. Okogie mentioned that he and his family, including his brothers and sisters, are not far removed from the fact that this kind of thing can happen to anyone.
Kevin Durant also had something to say. He believes that people are aware of what’s going on in the U.S. and that conversations are held all the time about these kinds of situations.
The players lined up for a moment of silence before the game began while wearing T-shirts that read “with liberty and justice for all.” This isn’t the first time NBA players have worn apparel before games as a way of voicing the need for justice for Black lives.
