Report: Hawks open to including No. 6 pick in trade for Jrue Holiday

  Report: Hawks open to including No. 6 pick in trade for Jrue Holiday Holiday is widely considered to be one of the best two-way guards in the NBA, so it’s no surprise he is such a hot commodity. His market could be impacted by his contract situation, however. Holiday has a $27 million player option for the 2021-22 season that he is expected to decline, so any team that acquires him would either need to sign him to an extension or risk only having him as a one-year rental.Holiday averaged 19.1 points, 6.7 assists and 1.6 steals per game for the Pelicans last season. He’s so highly regarded as a defender that his peers openly felt he got snubbed in All-Defensive Team voting.

New York Giants (at Cincinnati)

The seem to be catching the Bengals at the right time, which means they get to play Cincinnati with Brandon Allen at quarterback after starter Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending knee injury last Sunday. The Giants looked like they might be a slight underdog in this game a week ago, but now they are favored by 5.5 points and have win odds of 70 percent.

While the public is taking the Giants more often than not (75-percent pick popularity), as of right now, it appears as if not everyone is fully accounting for the impact of Burrow's injury on the Bengals' chances of winning. In a week in which a lot of teams are favored by between five and 7.5 points, the public is heavy on the favorites in Week 12 after two weeks of getting beat up picking popular underdogs. Right now, the Giants have the fourth-highest win odds of the week but are only the 13th-most popular pick in pick 'em pools.

Texans won’t hire Jack Easterby as GM

  Texans won’t hire Jack Easterby as GM The Texans plan on naming their next GM in January. They’ll also hire a new head coach who, reportedly, will not be the same person as the GM. Bill O’Brien filled that dual role for the Texans up until his dismissal, and ownership would prefer to split the jobs. Romeo Crennel, the team’s 73-year-old interim head coach, may be considered for the “permanent” post, though the Texans have also been connected to Eric Bieniemy. The Chiefs’ offensive coordinator is a favorite of quarterback Deshaun Watson, and his recommendation should carry some significant weight.

New England (vs. Arizona)

Gallery: Week 12: How to survive and advance in your knockout pool (SMG)

a group of baseball players playing a football game: There are three games on Thanksgiving Day. Two involve teams that are a combined 13-23. Awful. The evening contest is between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens are having COVID-19 issues with RBs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram having tested positive

New England has had a disappointing season, and Arizona is trying to secure a playoff spot in the NFC. But after New England's loss to Houston, the public has practically deserted the Patriots (only 20-percent pick popularity this week), even though they have a reasonable chance of an upset here.

The Patriots are only a 2.5-point home underdog, and this pick looks like a great value gamble in weekly-prize pick 'em contests given the potential payoff. In a week where the public is heavy on favorites, a slight underdog that is also highly underrated offers a great opportunity to differentiate your picks. As less than a field goal underdog, New England is that choice in Week 12.

Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization

  Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.

Indianapolis (vs. Tennessee)

It wouldn’t be a value picks section unless we included the Colts. The public at large just does not believe in Indianapolis, though that stubbornness continues to bite them. Indianapolis is favored by 3.5 points in this game with 64-percent win odds. At least this week more than half of the public is taking the Colts, unlike the past few weeks when they were favored to win but were still picked by fewer than half of pick 'em entries nationwide.

Still, Indianapolis' 64-percent pick popularity this week is one of the lowest pick rates for a favorite. Given that Indianapolis just beat the Titans two weeks ago in impressive fashion, it's surprising that the public is not more heavily going on the Colts this time around, but Tennessee's upset of Baltimore last week may be the reason.

Tennessee looks like the trendy upset pick in Week 12, and from a risk-reward perspective, those are the picks to avoid. Other less risky and less popular upset picks (e.g. New England mentioned above) will give you a bigger expected boost in your pool standings.

Kendrick Perkins: Obi Toppin best thing to happen to Knicks in 10 years

  Kendrick Perkins: Obi Toppin best thing to happen to Knicks in 10 years Perkins went on to call Toppin “a dog” and say he feels the Knicks won the draft by getting him. In a draft that was not considered all that deep, the claim is not as wild as it sounds. He was National Player of the Year at Dayton and averaged 20.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per game as a sophomore last season. He made an impressive 63.3 percent of his field goals. There are questions about his defense, but one NBA star went out of his way to praise Toppin after the Knicks took him.While few are higher on Toppin than Perkins, the general consensus seems to be that the Knicks made a smart pick at No. 8.

Week 12 NFL Survivor Pool Advice

Week 12 doesn’t feature any teams favored by double digits, making it a scary proposition for survivor pools. What it does currently have is nine teams favored by between five and 7.5 points and, thus, a lot of potential choices.

The Cleveland Browns have emerged as the public’s most frequent pick with 23 percent of survivor pool players choosing the Browns in Week 12. Cleveland has relatively low future value, but that higher pick rate means it is probably not the best value given that its chances of winning are similar to a bunch of other alternative picks.

The New York Giants (15-percent pick popularity) and Seattle Seahawks (also 15 percent) are the next two most popular survivor picks. The Giants basically have no future value, so if they are not too popular, they may be a decent play in some pools. Seattle does have a fair amount of value over the next three weeks if you can save them, as they get the Giants, Jets, and Washington Football Team soon.

Keep in mind that the best Week 12 pick for your survivor pool this week depends on a lot of things, like how many entries are still alive, whether you face double picks in later weeks (or other non-standard rules), and what teams you've used so far. To see the top pick for your current situation, check out our NFL Survivor Picks product for customized advice.
