Week 10 Recap
Covering the impact of coronavirus on the sports world
Mark Ingram couldn’t have known that by midseason, he would be back to where his career began. After he was the lead option in Houston for seven games, he was traded to New Orleans and designated as the Saints’ starter in Week 9. He’s in for a bigger workload on Sunday because Alvin Kamara (knee) is out against the Tennessee Titans this week. How high should Ingram be in your Week 10 Fantasy football rankings?
The Titans’ defense looks like an improved unit and allow up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points to running backs on a per-game basis. Ingram has just 28 yards on 12 carries in two games against the Titans, but should he be considered among the top Week 10 Fantasy football picks? Before you lock in your Week 10 Fantasy football lineups, be sure to check out the Week 10 Fantasy football rankings from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine’s model beat human experts in Fantasy football for the past several seasons especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home emptyhanded.
Last week, the model was extremely high on Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, saying he’d finish as a top-10 player at his position. The result: Herbert threw for 356 yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 14 yards and another score against the Eagles. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.
Now, the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its Fantasy football rankings for Week 10 of the 2021 NFL season. Head to SportsLine now to see them.
One player the model is high on this week: Cardinals running back James Conner. After co-starter Chase Edmonds was injured early on against San Francisco in Week 9, Conner took over the backfield. He finished the game with 21 carries for 96 yards and two touchdowns. He’ll be the clear starter again this week, albeit in a potentially tougher matchup against Carolina.
The Panthers have given up just the seventh-fewest Fantasy points to running backs per game this season, but opponents have rushed for 534 yards against them over the last four weeks. Quarterback Kyler Murray has only accounted for 12 percent of the Cardinals’ rushing yards this season, but Arizona has the seventh-most in the NFL. Conner should get plenty of volume against a defense that is a shell of its former self, which is why the model likes him as a top-ten option in its Fantasy football RB rankings.
And a massive shocker: Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, who’s thrown for 1,981 yards and 11 touchdowns while also rushing for 494 yards and five scores, stumbles big-time and doesn’t even crack the top 12 at his position. Hurts has thrown multiple touchdown passes four times this season, but he’s struggled in recent weeks. In fact, Hurts has thrown one or zero touchdown passes in four of his last five games. He’s also failed to record a rushing touchdown in his last three contests.
Now, Hurts and the Eagles will face off against the Broncos, one of the NFL’s stingiest defenses. Denver is giving up just 17.0 points per game this season, which ranks second in the league. Plus, the Broncos have given up just one passing touchdown to opposing quarterbacks in two of their last four games at home. With such a tough matchup on Sunday, Hurts is a player to consider putting on the bench in Week 10.
The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren’t even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of its Fantasy football rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning big and going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
So who should you start and sit this week? And which surprising quarterback could lead you to victory? Visit SportsLine now to get Week 10 Fantasy football rankings for every position, plus see which QB is going to come out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that has out-performed experts big-time.

AMD Moves GCN 1, 2, & 3-based GPUs and APUs To Legacy; Also Drops Win7 Support – AnandTech
Alongside today’s release of their new Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1 driver – the first to bring support for FidelityFX Super Resolution tech – AMD is also using this opportunity to clean house on supported graphics products. As announced in a new blog post and effective immediately, AMD is moving all of its 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) based GPUs and APUs to legacy status. As a result, pre-RX 400 series video cards and pre-Ryzen APUs are no longer supported by AMD’s current drivers, and AMD’s previous 21.5.2 driver set will be the final release for those products. 21.5.2 will also be the final driver that supports Windows 7, as AMD is also using this opportunity to drop support for that already-retired OS.
This week’s change in support marks the first time since 2015 that AMD has moved any video hardware to legacy support. At the time, the company retired its pre-GCN hardware, leaving AMD’s GCN-based Radeon HD 7000 series and newer products as their support baseline. And, after nearly 10 years of support for the oldest pieces of GCN hardware – the then-revolutionary Radeon HD 7970 was launched at the very start of 2012 – AMD is finally winding down support for the first couple of waves of GCN hardware.
First introduced in 2011, GCN was a major overhaul of AMD’s graphics architecture, moving from an ILP-centric design to a more modern and compute-friendly TLP-centric design. GCN itself has since been supplanted by the RDNA family, but many of the basic design principles of GCN are still alive today in AMD’s enterprise compute-focused CDNA architecture.
As for this week’s product support changes, AMD is essentially retiring all graphics hardware – GPU and APU – that pre-dates 2016’s Polaris (GCN 4) architecture. Consequently, AMD’s lengthy legacy list includes the Radeon 7000 and 8000 series, as well as the 200, 300, and Fury series. Even a few pieces of mobile-focused M400 hardware are on there, since those low-end parts were based on older GCN chips. Overall, this marks a roughly 5-year span of hardware being retired this week, with the youngest parts just turning 5.
On the APU front, the legacy list includes several of AMD’s popular pre-Ryzen APUs, including Bristol Ridge, Carrizo, and Kaveri, which were predominantly sold under the AMD A-series moniker (e.g. A10-9700). It’s worth noting that the resulting support window for these products does end up being a bit shorter than the discrete GPUs, since AMD didn’t release their first Ryzen + Vega APUs until 2018.
As things stand, I’m not surprised to see AMD lump together GCN 1/2/3 from a driver support standpoint. Despite some very material architecture tweaks among those successive generations, from a product development standpoint they all represent one extended product family, as AMD introduced and replaced GPUs in a piecemeal fashion. Combined with the fact that AMD continued using early GCN parts in newer cards for years, it wasn’t until Polaris in 2016 that AMD finally executed a complete top-to-bottom refresh of its entire GPU product stack. In other words, GCN 1/2/3 are being retired in the same way they lived: together.
Otherwise, as previously mentioned, AMD is also using this opportunity to retire support for their last pre-Windows 10 OS. Like most other hardware vendors, AMD had opted to continue developing drivers for Windows 7 even after the OS itself was retired at the start of 2020, owing to the fact that it was still seeing significant use in some locales. But, after another 18 months of extended support, Windows 7 support is also being dropped. As of today’s 21.6.1 drivers, the only versions of Windows supported are 64-bit editions of Windows 10.
For their part, AMD’s blog post on the retirement notes that “This change enables AMD to dedicate valuable engineering resources to developing new features and enhancements for graphics products based on our latest graphics architectures.” It’s also worth noting that this announcement comes less than 2 weeks after NVIDIA’s own legacy announcement, where the company announced that the similarly aged Kepler architecture will be moved to legacy status later this summer.
Closing out support for all these legacy products then will be AMD’s 21.5.2 driver. The company has posted a fresh “legacy” version of the driver just for these retired products, though it doesn’t look like there’s anything new versus AMD’s existing drivers. According to the company, there are no further driver released planned, and the announcement makes no mention of a security update support period.
Overall, AMD’s early GCN architecture parts marked an important transition for AMD, and the resulting hardware, for all of its merits and weaknesses, kept AMD in the game during a very tough period for the company. So for GCN 1, 2, and 3, this is a retirement that’s well-earned.
MaximBet Picks Kambi, White Hat to Provide Online Gaming… – Casino.Org News
Posted on: January 24, 2022, 11:25h.
Last updated on: January 25, 2022, 08:43h.
MaximBet announced on Monday that it has signed long-term deals with Kambi and White Hat Gaming to serve as its sports betting and iGaming platform providers, respectively.
The agreements fulfill a pledge to its users that the online gaming operator would provide them with “the very best experience, both online and in the real world,” MaximBet CEO Daniel Graetzer said in a statement.
This partnership will enable MaximBet to allocate more resources to its rapid expansion and real-life experiences that set it apart from the traditional, by-the-book sports betting platforms,” Graetzer said. “If MaximBet users thought the exclusive rewards, prizes, events and experiences were incredible before, they haven’t seen anything yet.”
Carousel Group owns MaximBet, which debuted its sports betting app last September in Colorado. Access rights have also been secured for Indiana, Iowa, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. In addition, there’s also a free-to-play app, MaximBet Play, that’s available nationwide.
Additional states will be revealed in the near future, according to the MaximBet release.
The gaming app tied to the men’s lifestyle media brand also has plans to launch in Canada.
MaximBet will integrate its sportsbook operations onto the Kambi platform. That includes utilizing Kambi’s risk management and compliance solutions. MaximBet users will be able to take advantage of Kambi’s BetBuilder feature and in-game betting and special parlay products.
In its own statement, the Malta-based gaming technology provider said the move will help MaximBet grow faster in North America.
“The management team at Carousel Group understand the benefits of Kambi’s scalable sports betting technology and services, as well as the flexibility to innovate on top of its own platform and leverage the strength of the Maxim brand,” Kambi CEO Kristian Nylén said in his company’s release. “This is an important partnership for Kambi as we continue to strengthen our global network and we look forward to working closely with MaximBet to aid its expansion across the US.”
Kambi’s platform is currently in use in 18 states. Rush Street Interactive, Churchill Downs, and Penn National Gaming also use Kambi’s platforms to power their sports betting operations.
Besides its iGaming platform, White Hat will also provide its player account management solution to MaximBet. That includes White Hat’s traveling wallet.
“Outsourcing core technology like the platform and PAM solution will enable MaximBet to focus on its expansion, player acquisition, and retention whilst guaranteeing a best-in-class product,” White Hat CEO Phil Gelvan said in a statement.
Unlike some states, Colorado does not break out its sports betting numbers by operator or gaming partner. Because of that, it’s uncertain how much of the market MaximBet holds in the state.
MaximBet is one of 25 mobile sports betting applications available in the state. Its partner is Johnny Nolon’s Casino in Cripple Creek.
In its release, it did not disclose any handle or revenue figures. However, MaximBet did claim it has “achieved rapid market acceptance” in Colorado since rolling out the app. That includes month-to-month handle increases of 50 percent and above expected customer retention rates.
