WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Will Fuller playing Saturday in Week 16?UPDATE: Fuller is officially ACTIVE. Despite getting in limited practices all week, Fuller (hamstring) was listed as “questionable” on the Texans final injury report ahead of Saturday’s game at Tampa Bay. SATURDAY DFS: DraftKings main slate lineup | Showdown lineupsFuller returned in Week 15 after a one-week absence, catching five-of-seven targets for 61 yards. The Bucs allow the most fantasy points per game to WRs, so this is a must-start spot for Fuller, who doesn’t appear to be in any danger of missing this game. If he is a surprise scratch, Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee would get bumps in value, with Stills slotting in as a WR2/3 and Coutee as a deep-league FLEX. WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Carlos Hyde playing Week 16?UPDATE: Hyde is officially ACTIVE. Hyde (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is “questionable” for Saturday’s game against the Buccaneers.MORE WEEK 16: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emThere doesn’t seem to be any reason to be worried about Hyde suiting up, but he is facing the league’s top run defense. Volume and TD-upside stills gives him FLEX value, but Hyde shouldn’t be counted on for much this week.
…geared to create growth in Private Sector – Minister GaskinBusiness Minister with responsibility for tourism, Dominic Gaskin, in his address to the National Assembly during the budget debate, revealed that Guyana’s tourism sector has seen tremendous and steady growth over the years.According to Gaskin, there has been a 17 per cent increase over the same period when compared to last year. “This has been very good news to Guyana because visitors bring in money into our economy which, therefore, means that there will be more money circulating in that particular sector”.The Business Minister underscored that an additional 30,000 visitors arrived in Guyana throughout the year, which means that an additional US$15 million wasBusiness Minister Dominic Gaskinpumped into the country’s economy.“If we are to assume, an average visitor spends at least US$500 when they visit – which is extremely conservative – so if we look at all the figures in totality, tourism is expected to bring in US$150 million to be spent in our economy,” he explained.Further, Gaskin noted that the Government realised the importance of this sector and its capacity to create and sustain employment and the need to develop Guyana’s tourism product to keep increasing visitors arrivals. “We do recognise the economic opportunities that tourism can create in traditionally these advantage areas, such as the hinterland where the Indigenous population lives. This is why there has been a steady increase in the budgetary appropriation for the GTA [Guyana Tourism Authority] from $123 million in 2014 to over 300 million in 2019”.Moreover, the Minister anticipated that in 2019, the sector, which fell under the remit of the Business Ministry, will be “up to date” with the annual reports.“The main thrust of our tourism drive is to develop sustainable tourism in each administrative region, starting with areas identified by stakeholders as their tourism hotspot. We are seeking to make tourism a mean of improving lives in the communities where it takes place by making the communities the main beneficiaries of the visitor’s flow that they allocate,” Gaskin noted.Meanwhile, Minister of State, Joseph Hamilton condemned those who have peddled distasteful news about Guyana’s tourism sector.
