Fantasy football waiver wire: Eagles' Boston Scott poised to assume starting role in Week 7

  Fantasy football waiver wire: Eagles' Boston Scott poised to assume starting role in Week 7 Likely absence of starter Miles Sanders makes Boston Scott the top addition to Week 7 fantasy rosters; WR Keelan Cole offers consistent production.Unless they've been dropped a few weeks ago by panicky fantasy GMs, high-upside players who have the potential to be long-term starters just aren't out there. Le'Veon Bell's value certainly jumped after the Kansas City Chiefs picked him up, but he's unlikely to be available in most leagues.

PARIS (Reuters) - France is preparing this week to order people to stay in their homes except for essential journeys, work, or exercise, in a fresh attempt to curb the COVID-19 epidemic, according to two industry sources familiar with the government's planning.

French President Emmanuel Macron is due to make a televised address on COVID-19 measures at 8:00 pm (1900 GMT) on Wednesday. A government official refused to detail the measures, beyond saying there would be new steps.

The industry sources said that the new restrictions would be nationwide, and similar in scope to a lockdown that was enforced in spring this year, when hospitalisations and deaths caused by the virus reached a peak.

Under that lockdown, people were allowed out for essential work, to seek medical care, to buy essential goods, or for one hour of exercise daily.

However, in a departure from the spring lockdown, the government is planning to keep most schools open, according to the sources.

Under the plan described by the sources, non-essential shops will close, with supermarkets and pharmacies among the outlets allowed to stay open. People will be able to go to work if they cannot do their job remotely.

The new arrangement will be of finite duration but it was not clear exactly how long it would last, according to the sources.
