Photo/Sherry Wahr“We lost in the first round (the last two seasons), so it definitely feels good,” he said. “We weren’t as mentally into that first half as we should’ve been. We’ve got to come back and improve on that.”Next up for the Eagles will be the Ithaca Yellowjackets, who have won five of the past six state titles in Division 6. Harger has been well aware of that potential matchup.“We thought about that possible matchup and we look at it as we’ve got to play them, but they’ve also got to play us,” the coach said. “We’ve got a strong playoff tradition as well. We’re looking forward to playing in a district final game.”As far as savoring Friday’s win, Harger doesn’t plan to let it linger.Oakridge QB Brady Luttrull heads into the end zone past the Grant defense. Photo/Sherry Wahr“One night – if that,” he said, “One night is all I give them and then we tell them they’ve got to move on.”Senior quarterback Brady Luttrull and sophomore running back Blake Masterman led the attack for Oakridge.Luttrull accounted for nearly 300 total yards and three touchdowns, while Masterman had more than 100 yards and two scores on the ground.Masterman is part of a three-man backfield for the Eagles, but got the majority of the workload on Friday.“Formation-wise we tried to spread them out, to see what kind of coverage they were giving us,” Harger said. “We were trying to see what they were going to do against our run game and see what would open up passing wise.”Masterman’s first touchdown, a 17-yard run, opened the scoring just 51 seconds into the game.No. 66 Cole Harger gets the Oakridge sack. Photo/Sherry WahrThe next score didn’t come until the 9:50 mark of the second quarter, when Luttrull found Austin Smith for a 50-yard touchdown pass. The Grant defender fell on the play, giving Smith room to run after making the grab.The Tigers got on the board just over two minutes later on a 40-yard pass from Trent Throop to Casey Geers.Oakridge added some cushion with a five-yard touchdown run by Luttrull with 23 seconds left in the half.The lone score of the third quarter came on a 26-yard touchdown run by Masterman.Freshman Leroy Quinn added a one-yard touchdown for Oakridge on his first carry of the game in the fourth quarter.The Eagles scored their final touchdown with 5:30 to go on an eight-yard TD throw from Luttrull to Jake Groendal. $3.99 Bestseller Not relevant A Warrior’s Heart ENDS IN Inappropriate / Offensive Bestseller Other (22) DEAL OF THE DAY Thank you!

Week 3 Fantasy FLEX rankings

first_imgThe FLEX position can cause fantasy football owners Sunday morning headaches. Last week, about an hour and a half until kickoff, a friend texted me and wanted to know whether to play a second TE or his RB against the Bears. There are surely thousands upon thousands of fantasy owners wondering similar things each week, including at the start of Week 3. Whether you’re wondering if JJ Arcega-Whiteside or Mack Hollins are worthy fill-ins in the Eagles’ receiver corps or if rookies Deebo Samuel or Preston Williams are the real deal, our Week 3 FLEX rankings are here for your start ’em, sit ’em decisions.Even moreso than usual, we’ve overloaded the bottom of our FLEX rankings with wide receivers. That last spot in your lineup, especially in deeper leagues, really needs a touchdown to get the desired payoff. Players like Paul Richardson and DeVante Parker make themselves worth starts if they score. Obviously, we can’t predict touchdowns, but as the NFL passes more and more, it’s those receivers you’ve barely heard of that deserve spots in your fantasy lineups at the FLEX position. WEEK 3 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerYou can check out all of our individual rankings, linked just above, to break down the options at a singular position, but for that final FLEX spot, you’ve come to the right place.WEEK 3 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endReminder: Check back for rankings updates throughout the week.Week 3 DFS Lineups: FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | Y! cash | Y!
