Fantasy Injury Updates: Alvin Kamara, David Johnson, James Conner impact Week 10 start ’em, sit ’em calls

first_imgJames Conner injury newsAdam Schefter reported before Week 9 that Conner (shoulder) would be “in jeopardy” of missing Pittsburgh’s Week 10 matchup with the Rams. Jaylen Samuels caught 13 passes with Conner out in Week 9, while Trey Edmunds rushed 12 times for 73 yards.MORE WEEK 10:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Snap counts | Trade values | Fantasy playoff SOSThe Steelers play in the late afternoon time slot Sunday, so if you can back up Conner with either Samuels or Edmunds, that might be the wise move. Samuels is a definite PPR star if Conner is out, while both he and Edmunds could start in standard leagues in a pinch. WEEK 10 NON-PPR RANKINGSQuarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWill Alvin Kamara play Week 10?The expectation before New Orleans’ Week 9 bye was that Kamara (ankle) would return in Week 10. He missed the two games before the bye, allowing Latavius Murray to dominate work in the Saints’ backfield. New Orleans hosts Atlanta’s weak defense in Week 10.The Falcons are a great matchup, and you’d obviously start Kamara if he’s back. Murray would be a fantasy starter as an RB2 if Kamara missed another game, and he still could have some FLEX value during this six-team bye.WEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | FD cash | FD GPPDavid Johnson, Chase Edmonds injury updatesKliff Kingsbury said after Arizona’s Thursday night game in Week 9 that he expects Johnson (ankle, back) to play in Week 10. He’d said prior to the game that he still expected Chase Edmonds to miss “a few weeks” more. They join a backfield with newly acquired Kenyan Drake, who topped 100 yards in his Cardinals debut.(Update: David Johnson told reporters on Wednesday that he’ll play Sunday.)Johnson should reclaim his starting role, but his workload could be cut into by Drake. Once all three backs are healthy, it’s safe to assume one will miss out on action altogether while another will be a change-of-pace back to the starter Johnson. This Sunday, Arizona plays Tampa Bay, which has a much worse pass defense than run defense, so expect a heavy dose of RB receptions.WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end A few top running backs look likely to make their return from injury in Week 10. Both Alvin Kamara and David Johnson likely return to the field and reclaim top 10 spots in our Week 10 RB rankings. Pittsburgh doesn’t look to have as promising a situation with James Conner and may be forced to work with the committee of Jaylen Samuels and Trey Edmunds once again in Week 10, making them both potential sleepers against the Rams.For injury updates on banged-up WRs Adam Thielen and DeSean Jackson, click here; for more on QBs Patrick Mahomes and Matt Ryan, go here; for the latest on injured pass-catchers A.J.

One of the Games from the Humble Indie Bundle Counterfeited in the Mac App Store

first_imgTags:#Apple#gaming#web Related Posts His justification for the claim: the release of Lugaru’s source code last May. That was an act done “in the spirit of the Humble Indie Bundle,” a phenomenally successful pay-what-you-want video game sale, organized by Wolfire Games. At the end of the campaign, Lugaru, along with three of the other games that were part of the game bundle, went open source. Lugaru’s source code was released under the GPL or “general public license,” one of the most common licenses for open source software. But while developers are free to hack away at the Lugaru code, Wolfire Games does retain all the legal rights to the characters and the game assets. Open sourcing Lugaru’s code certainly doesn’t give others the right to sell the game in the Mac App Store. The folks at Wolfire Games have long been proponents of open source, often making the argument that it’s a great way for indie game developers to help improve the code – and of course the games – they build. Rosen says he fears “this incident may make developers much less likely to release the source code to their games.”We’ve contacted Apple for comment, and will update when we hear more. It’s not the first time that open source developers have run into problems with the new Mac Store, most recently when VLC was pulled after a developer claimed its presence there ran afoul of the GPL. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… If you’re looking for a little bunny rabbit combat video game, consider Lugaru. But if you go to purchase the game from the Mac App Store, beware. There are two versions. One (for sale for $9.99) is Wolfire Games’ – the startup is the creator of the game. The other’s being sold by iCoder for $1.99. “Imagine our surprise,” says Wolfire Games’ co-founder Jeffrey Rosen, when the startup found that someone they’d never heard of was selling their game via Apple’s new app store, and at a price that severly undercut the official version.“This is a kind of software fraud we’ve never even heard of,” writes Rosen in a blog post this evening, “a pirate simply downloading the app and resubmitting it to the same distribution channel at a lower price. We immediately emailed Apple explaining the situation, expecting them to quickly investigate the situation, shut down the fraudulent app, and follow up with us. We started this process a few days ago, and haven’t heard back from Apple yet.”Rosen says he’s also struck out with contacting iCoder. But in an article in the gaming blog Kotaku, iCoder’s Alex Matlin claims that “we have every legal right to market and sell the software, and we feel that $1.99 is a fair price.” 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… audrey watterslast_img read more
