I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.”
JAKE Ball gave England a further injury scare on another day of mixed fortunes for the tourists in the day-night warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI.Only two days after Steven Finn was ruled out of the Ashes series with a knee injury, Ball suffered a sprained ankle while bowling his fourth over at the Adelaide Oval on day two.The seamer, who took a wicket before injury struck, was able to walk off the field and will be assessed just a fortnight before the series against Australia begins at the Gabba.Mason Crane took 3-78, while James Anderson (2-30) and Chris Woakes (2-48) claimed wickets with the pink ball as the Cricket Australia XI recovered from 57-5 to declare on 233-9 under the lights in reply to 293 all out.Alastair Cook and Mark Stoneman negotiated five overs to take England through to 5-0 – leading by 65 – at stumps following the late declaration from Tim Paine.Paine (52) and Simon Milenko (50) made half-centuries, while Matthew Short chipped in with 45 to frustrate England after the Cricket Australia XI had found runs hard to come by on a slow pitch.Young leg-spinner Daniel Fallins earlier claimed a five-wicket haul for 73 to end the England innings after they had resumed on 278-8.The 41-year-old Paul Collingwood, a member of the England coaching team, made a brief appearance in the field in the absence of Ball.

Injured WRs and TEs are wreaking havoc on the first round of the fantasy playoffs, as T.Y. Hilton, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Evan Engram, Gerald Everett, and Greg Olsen have already been declared out (and Adam Thielen is “doubtful”). There are also a few key pass-catchers (Julian Edelman, Will Fuller, Marquise Brown, Ryan Griffin, David Njoku) who enter the weekend with “questionable” tags, and at least a couple figure to be true game-time decisions. We’ll have the latest updates below throughout the day to help with your Week 14 fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions.

WEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Julian Edelman playing Week 14?UPDATE: Edelman is officially ACTIVE.Edelman (shoulder) is “questionable” for what feels like the 14th-straight week, but once again, he’s in no danger of missing this week’s game. Despite a tough matchup on paper against the Chiefs, Edelman is a must-start in all formats. WEEK 14 DFS LINEUPS:DK Cash | DK GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPIs Will Fuller playing Week 14?UPDATE 2: Fuller is officially OUT. UPDATE: Fuller is expected to miss Week 14, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Fuller (hamstring) got in limited practices all week, and he figures to be a true game-time decisions for Sunday’s early-afternoon game against Denver. If Fuller plays, consider him a boom-or-bust WR3, as he is most weeks. If he’s out, bump up Kenny Stills into WR3 territory. WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endMarquise Brown injury updateUPDATE: Brown is officially ACTIVE.Brown (ankle) is once again “questionable” despite practicing most of the week. This is fairly common for him, so it’s likely he suits up for Sunday’s early-afternoon game against the Bills. The exciting rookie has been the definition of a boom-or-bust WR3 this year. Given his matchup against Buffalo’s stout secondary, he’s riskier than usual in all formats, but we thought that two weeks ago against the Rams when he caught two scores. If you need higher-ceiling players in your lineup, you can stick with Brown. MORE WEEK 14: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emIs David Njoku playing Week 14?UPDATE: Njoku is officially ACTIVE. Njoku (wrist) has been officially activated from injured reserve and is fully expected to play on Sunday against the Bengals. Njoku hasn’t played since Week 2, so it’s tough to know what to expect here, but given his talent level and the relatively soft defense he’ll be facing, he’s a legit low-end TE1 this week. MORE WEEK 14 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup Builder Ryan Griffin injury updateUPDATE: Griffin is officially ACTIVE. Griffin (illness) manged to get in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but he’s still listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.Considering he got some practice time in, it’s unlikely he’ll miss the game like teammate Le’Veon Bell. As long as he’s active, have him in your lineup. If he’s out, Daniel Brown and Trevon Wesco will split time at tight end.
