Callahan & Associates premiered its Executive Roundtable program in 2011, gathering small groups of credit union leaders to network, brainstorm, and commiserate with peers during two-day getaways held throughout the country.Since then, these gatherings have evolved into true cooperative events. Participants drive the agenda via pre-event interviews and on-site input. There are no guest speakers or sales pitches, just peers from the same area of their cooperatives — e.g., CEOs, chief lending officers, chief financial officers, etc. — talking shop and learning from one another.This dynamic group of credit union leaders also decide when it’s time to offer a new roundtable. Based on feedback, Callahan recently added an analytics event to the lineup.Data science and business intelligence have become must-have tools at many successful credit unions. The conversations that take place during Callahan’s Executive Roundtables are strictly confidential; however, a few participants agreed to talk on the record about their analytics journey. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

2020 FANTASY RANKINGS:Quarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerPerhaps the biggest RB-related move of the offseason was Gurley’s release by the Rams and subsequent signing by the Falcons. Gurley went to a favorable situation, as he should dominate touches and get a good amount of receptions, and now there’s a chance for either Malcolm Brown, Darrell Henderson, or a draft pick to emerge as a sleeper in L.A. On the flip side, Gordon’s move to Denver only muddles up an already crowded situation. Both Phillip Lindsay and Gordon lose some value, while Royce Freeman falls off the radar completely. Another move that might be overlooked is Jordan Howard’s signing in Miami. Howard should get the bulk of the carries for the Dolphins, putting him in the RB2 discussion, while his defection from Philadelphia opens the door for Miles Sanders to really break out. We’re being cautious with our ranking of Sanders for now, but he’s the type of player who could gain a lot of momentum by draft season. David Johnson is also back on the RB2 radar after going to the Texans, the team that resurrected Carlos Hyde’s career last season. Ronald Jones II could also see a lot of positive momentum through the offseason after Peyton Barber signed with the Redskins. Tampa still needs offensive line help, but as the unquestioned starter, Jones has breakout potential. Likewise, Dare Ogunbowale could also get a bump in PPR leagues given Tom Brady’s propensity for throwing to running backs. If Brady continues to show that trait despite being in a new offense, Tampa’s backs become a lot more interesting. Few positions see as much offseason rankings movement as RB. Sometimes it’s justified (what happens in the draft); other times it’s based purely on mock draft ADP and spurious reports from training camp. Either way, when fantasy owners get excited about a certain guy, it’s tough to slow down the momentum. All of that is a way of saying that these rankings will change plenty between now and August, so check back for updates. 2020 Fantasy Football RB RankingsRankings based on non-PPR scoring formatsRankPlayer1Christian McCaffrey, Panthers2Saquon Barkley, Giants3Derrick Henry, Titans4Dalvin Cook, Vikings5Nick Chubb, Browns6Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys7Josh Jacobs, Raiders8Alvin Kamara, Saints9Aaron Jones, Packers10Leonard Fournette, Jaguars11Kenyan Drake, Cardinals12Joe Mixon, Bengals13Devin Singletary, Bills14Austin Ekeler, Chargers15Kerryon Johnson, Lions16Chris Carson, Seahawks17Mark Ingram, Ravens18Miles Sanders, Eagles19David Montgomery, Bears20Le’Veon Bell, Jets21Todd Gurley, Falcons22Marlon Mack, Colts23Damien Williams, Chiefs24James Conner, Steelers25David Johnson, Texans26Jordan Howard, Dolphins27Phillip Lindsay, Broncos28Derrius Guice, Redskins29Ronald Jones II, Buccaneers30Darrell Henderson, Rams31Raheem Mostert, 49ers32Kareem Hunt, Browns33Melvin Gordon, Broncos34Sony Michel, Patriots35Latavius Murray, Saints36Tevin Coleman, 49ers37Malcolm Brown, Rams38Alexander Mattison, Vikings39Jamaal Williams, Packers40Adrian Peterson, Redskins41Dare Ogunbowale, Buccaneers42Nyheim Hines, Colts43Matt Breida, 49ers44Tarik Cohen, Bears45James White, Patriots46Duke Johnson, Texans47Justin Jackson, Chargers48Darwin Thompson, Chiefs49Gus Edwards, Ravens50Tony Pollard, Cowboys The NFL free agency period didn’t affect our 2020 fantasy RB rankings as much as some other positions, but a few big running back moves (David Johnson’s trade, Todd Gurley’s release, Melvin Gordon’s signing in Denver) shook things up and changed some of the names throughout the various tiers. The biggest news at the top is Derrick Henry staying put in Tennessee after the Titans placed the franchise tag on him. Of course, now fantasy owners have to worry about Henry holding out until he gets a long-term deal, but at least we know that he’ll be in an ideal offense when he is on the field. Future owners of Kenyan Drake and Austin Ekeler also got some peace of mind with the departures of Johnson and Gordon, respectively.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook reacts after being fouled during the second half of an NBA basketball game, Tuesday, March 13, 2018, in Atlanta. Oklahoma City won 119-107. (AP Photo/John Amis)ATLANTA — Russell Westbrook darted into the lane time and time again, hitting the shot, drawing a foul or finding an open teammate.At the other end of the court, he lingered under the boards, pulling down one rebound after another — usually against players taller than him.ADVERTISEMENT Isaiah Thomas rallies Lakers past Nuggets LATEST STORIES Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew At this rate, he’ll go by Kidd and Johnson in the next couple of seasons, having already become the third-fastest to reach the century mark behind Robertson (a mere 277 games) and Johnson (656 games). Westbrook needed 736 games to get there, but he’s really stepped up the pace since Kevin Durant left for Golden State.The sellout crowd in attendance-challenged Atlanta — a turnout befitting one of the league’s brightest stars — broke into loud applause when Westbrook locked up his triple-double with 2 1/2 minutes remaining, snatching away a rebound after the Hawks missed.“It’s always crazy for me, man, to go on the road and just see — not just fans cheering, but kids wearing my jersey,” he said. “I never, ever imagined me even playing in the NBA. To see that every time, it’s always amazing for me. I never take it for granted.”Westbrook not only made it to the NBA.He cracked a very elite club.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He fed a pass to Jerami Grant for a 3-pointer. He bolted for the basket to draw a foul and sank both free throws. He spotted Grant again on a fast break after an Atlanta turnover, threading a pass that set up a three-point play. He drew another foul, sinking one more free throw. And with the lead in double digits, he stayed on the court long enough to grab three more rebounds.ADVERTISEMENT In other words, just another night for Mr. Triple-Double .Westbrook joined a very exclusive club Wednesday by putting up double figures in points, assists and rebounds for the 100th time in his career, a feat accomplished by only three other players.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkOscar Robertson.

It’s something that we should all appreciate, moments like this, and appreciate what we have and who we have.”Westbrook insisted his gaudy numbers are not the most important thing.He’s proudest of the Thunder’s record when he goes off for a triple-double — 82-18.“I like winning,” Westbrook said. “The most important part about this game is winning, embracing and enjoying it with your teammates.”Westbrook is barely halfway to Robertson’s career record of 181 triple-doubles, but he’s definitely got Johnson (138) and Kidd (107) in his sights.Last season, Westbrook won the MVP award and set a league record with 42 triple-doubles, joining Robertson as the only players to average a triple-double over a full year. This season, with more offensive help around him after the Thunder acquired George and Anthony, Westbrook has still managed 21 triple-doubles.
