Yahoo! League ownership: 22%
Draft Kings salary: $5,800

One week in, it sure looks like Bridgewater has carried his success from six games as the Saints’ starter last season over to his new situation in Carolina. Teddy’s beginning to shed the role of a dull,

A funny thing happens when a professional sports team pulls off two minor miracles back to back: minor miracles start to feel inevitable.

The Denver Nuggets have made a habit in these playoffs of not just coming back from two 3–1 series deficits to the Utah Jazz and the Clippers, but massive in-game deficits as well. And so when the Los Angeles Lakers blew open Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals in the second quarter Friday night, it felt like just a matter of time until the Nuggets did what the Nuggets do.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Hannah Green had to wait an extra day to open her title defence in the Cambria Portland Classic. Once she got going, about the only thing that slowed her was a 1 1/2-hour lightning delay and fading light.

Green shot a 6-under 66 on Friday at Columbia Edgewater for a share of the lead with Cydney Clanton in the LPGA Tour event reduced to 54 holes because of poor air quality caused by wildfires. Green was able to finish in fading light, while many other afternoon starters were still on the course when darkness suspended play.

Briscoe is hoping for

LYON, France — Lyon’s winless run in the French league stretched to three games after being held by visiting Nimes to 0-0 on Friday.

Nimes goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet made a fine save in the 90th minute to deny Lyon substitute Tino Kadewere a late winner from Memphis Depay’s corner.

Earlier, Moussa Dembele thought he’d scored for the home side, but the goal was ruled out after a VAR check as the ball had gone out of play.

Lyon, a Champions League semifinalist last season, started the league with a 4-1 win over Dijon thanks to Depay’s hat trick, but Rudi

LOS ANGELES — A person with knowledge of the deal says receiver Robert Woods has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth up to $68 million with the Los Angeles Rams.
