WNBA draft coming on Thursday
In a way, Lincolnwood native Jewell Loyd already has helped out the hometown Sky even if she’s unlikely to play for Chicago this season. When the Notre Dame junior declared for the WNBA draft last week, along with Minnesota sophomore Amanda Zahui B., many general managers wiped their whiteboards clean and rewrote their draft strategies.

What's your biggest dilemma for Week 16? #fantasyfootballadvice  
You've made your list. You've checked it twice. And in Week 16 you'll find out which fantasy football picks were naughty or nice. Hopefully you've remembered to sack the man from Santa Claus, Ind. They won't let poor Jay Cutler play in anymore Bears games.

Marquess Wilson: Bears receiver by day, #fantasy  stud by night? (+ DeMarco Murray, Cam Newton and more)
Ever since my sports listening and viewing became filled with commercials for FanDuel and DraftKings, I've had a sneaking suspicion that these "daily" fantasy football leagues would become the day trading of the new millennium.

He did his thing, but it could have been better if he didn't get hurt in the 3rd. He should have wound with closer to 20 carries and 80 yards, but the touchdown was nice.

I'm going to roll with Manning tonight, but I've got Dalton just in case he doesn't go.
