Fantasy Football Buy and Sell Advice: Week 4
The waiver wire is important, but trading is what truly makes or breaks your fantasy season. Here are the top buy-low and sell-high picks at every position entering Week 4.QuarterbackBuyGardner MinshewThe fantasy football community fell off the Minshew bandwagon as quickly as they hopped aboard. After completing over 75 percent of his passes for 512 yards and six touchdowns over the first two weeks, his value took a hit in Week 3. However, he still posted 30 completions for 275 yards. His zero touchdowns are what hurt him most, but that shouldn’t be a recurring issue going forward. You might b...

Greg Cote's Week 3 NFL picks
We rebounded like Bam Adebayo in Week 2, niftying a 14-2 mark straight-up and an I’ll-take-it 9-7 against the evil betting line. That erased the taste of a sluggish opening week and gives us some tailwind as we dig into our 30th season of NFL picks in the Miami Herald. The comeback featured a direct hit on our Upset of the Week with Raiders stunning Saints on Monday night (“Aaawwwk!”). Also had three other dogs-with-points in Jags covering at Titans, Broncos doing the same at Steelers, and Bengals covering at Browns. Our only two outright misses: Overestimating the Vikings and Eagles, who both...

SHOPPING LIST: Reliable beauty and personal care picks
What makes for a reliable product? I observe that there are three factors. The first one is, of course, effectivity. If it works, the word-of-mouth recommendations outpace a social media campaign. Effectivity leads to the second factor: Longevity.There are many popular items but not all of them last. With longevity, you see how a product maintains a loyal following despite new trends. In beauty and personal care, people will still go back to what they’ve tried previously, no matter if there are new things. Sure, they perhaps give the latest item a try. But the moment that it doesn’t work or ru...

Greg Cote's Week 2 NFL picks
I could put a derby and a bowtie on the pig, but why bother? We had a lousy start to our season last week. The excuses are there if I want ’em. No preseason, coronavirus opt-outs, limited or no fans mostly wiping out home-field advantage — these things have made King Sport that much more unpredictable in 2020, especially early. Also had more bad luck than lucky bounces in Week 1, such as a dropped last-second TD pass costing me the Lions win I’d predicted. Nevertheless, no excuses as we dig into our 30th season of NFL picks in the Miami Herald. We got risky out the gate with four outright upse...
Greg Cote's Week 1 NFL picks
Dumbfounding to fathom but we began our Friday NFL picks in the Miami Herald in 1991 — Dan Marino was mid-career — and so this is our 30th season. (Does Hallmark make a card for that?) Our picks appear online every Thursday afternoon and in print Fridays. (Our Thursday night pick appears Wednesdays online and Thursdays in the paper). We inexplicably and magically produced our greatest season ever in 2018, with a .705 winning percentage overall and .582 vs. the betting line — both numbers crazy good. Unsurprisingly we tailed off in 2019 but were still solid at .663 straight-up and .518 against ...

Best Christmas Markets In And Around Tokyo
Santa will also be there, having a glass of hot wine.While you may still be recovering from all the turkey and pies you had on Thanksgiving, Japan is already embracing the arrival of Christmas at full speed: you’re seeing the illuminationsand Colonel Sanders dressed as Santa Claus, and you’re no doubt hearing Christmas music in absolutely every public space where there is a speaker.But besides all that (and the Christmas cakes), you know Christmas is coming when you find yourself at a Europe-inspired market, sipping hot wine and eating bratwurst.
