He keeps the credit union … Web: Details Back in January there were some rumblings about a virus on the other side of Earth, but for the most part, life in these United States seemed pretty much “normal”. In late February, a lot of us were in D.C. at GAC and weren’t really thinking about masks and hand sanitizer. And then came March. The doors to our offices got locked up and we were all sent home (ok some of us were already at home). As someone who’s been working from home for some time now, it can definitely be an adjustment at first. If you’re still spending a lot of time in your home office, here are a few ways you can make sure your home office is as productive as your actual office.Invest in it: An outlet near your dining room table does not equal a home office. You need a room in your house that will let you get away from distractions. During this “stay at home” period, the biggest distraction you’re probably dealing with is the other people in your house. Being the only one in my house and having a dedicated office is nice. If you have a room you can make your office, make it feel like a real office. Get a nice desk with storage, enough outlets/powerstrips for everything you need, good lighting, and maybe even a mini fridge for holding six-packs of b … soda.Keep office hours: Another bad thing about distractions at home is that you’ll find yourself working into the night. Think about what time you normally get out of your car at the office and what time you normally get back into the car. The time in-between is the time you should be spending in your home office. Make sure you’re managing your time well and you’re not turning 8 hours of work into 12.Straighten up: My desk at my old office was always in pristine shape. My desk in my home office is not always in pristine shape. Get rid of the clutter, toss those to-go coffees, take your plate from lunch last Tuesday into the kitchen and put it in the dishwasher. The great thing about cleaning up is once you get started you usually won’t stop until it’s perfect. And you’ll feel pretty dang good when you get to look at that finished product. Now … get back to work!last_img read more

first_imgWEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerDJ Chark injury updateChark (ankle) was ruled out Friday for Week 15 but still traveled with Jacksonville to Oakland. On Monday, Jags head coach Doug Marrone said Chark was “cleared to get on the field and do some running and cutting.” The Jaguars play in Atlanta at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.It’s a great passing-game matchup for Jacksonville this weekend, so anyone who made it through the fantasy semifinals without Chark would love to get him back. Running and cutting on his injured ankle Monday has to be considered a good sign for his availability. He’s a must-start if active. If Chark is out, Chris Conley, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole all have varying degrees of FLEX appeal.WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Mike Evans playing Week 16?Two reports, one from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and one from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, have indicated that Evans (hamstring) is out for the remainder of the season. Chris Godwin and Scotty Miller are dealing with hamstring injuries for Tampa Bay, too.It looks like Saturday at 1 p.m. ET will be the Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson show in the TB wideout group. Against the Texans, that makes Perriman a must-start and Watson a solid FLEX play against a bad pass defense. O.J. Howard is also a back-end fantasy starter at TE with Evans and Godwin both likely out.MORE WEEK 16: Top waiver pickupsJuJu Smith-Schuster injury newsAt the end of last week, Smith-Schuster (knee) said he isn’t sure when he’ll return and that it’s up to Mike Tomlin. He’s missed the past four Pittsburgh games with a knee injury. The Steelers take on the Jets at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.If JuJu couldn’t make it back for a crucial playoff impacting matchup with the Bills on Sunday night, it’s not looking great for his chances of playing the rest of the way. Against the Jets, both James Washington and Diontae Johnson have FLEX worthiness in a boom-or-bust way.WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPP Fantasy championships could be riding on some wide receivers who haven’t yet gotten over injuries. DJ Chark, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Nelson Agholor could all play a part in start-or-sit decisions and waiver wire pickups this week as the Week 16 WR rankings get put together.

Nelson Agholor injury statusWhen Eagles head coach Doug Pederson spoke with reporters Monday, he said that Agholor is making progress and that he wouldn’t rule out Agholor returning Sunday to face Dallas. Agholor (knee) has missed the last two games, and Philadelphia is already without Alshon Jeffery for the rest of the season.MORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsAgholor hasn’t been productive when he’s played, even without Jeffery, but if he’s healthy, he’ll steal playing time from recent breakout Greg Ward. If Agholor is out, Ward is a solid FLEX play against Dallas, especially in PPR leagues, after catching seven passes for 61 yards and a late score in Week 15.last_img read more
