President Biden has extended the interest-free payment pause for most federal student loan borrowers through Sept. 30. But after that break ends, paying $0 may still be a necessity for some borrowers. You may be able to qualify for a $0 monthly payment at that point by enrolling in an income-driven repayment plan or suspending payments altogether via deferment or forbearance. An income-driven plan is usually the best choice because of benefits like potential loan forgiveness, but compare all your options if you’ll need longer-term relief. While you can’t switch repayment plans while payments are paused, you can figure out a strategy and prepare now.

He had a great run in the latter, making Askren emerge as one of the most feared grapplers of the game, before retiring in 2017. Askren then said that he has nothing else to prove and he just wanted to show that he is the best in the world. However, UFC President traded flyweight legend Demetrius Johnson to ONE Championship where DJ has already gained a title and in return signed in Ben ‘The Funky’ Askren. Ben managed a controversial win on his UFC debut against Robbie Lawler and then faced two humiliating losses on the trot in the UFC. Jorge Masvidal knocked out Askren clean in just five seconds and after Demian’s victory over him, Ben Askren is considering retirement.In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Ben Askren said that he thinks that it is his time for cost-analysis. He needs to sit down with his family and think about his future. Ben Askren also mentioned that he never really loved fighting in the first place and he did it only to show the world that he can do it. Looks like the 1-2 run in his UFC career so far has shaken Ben Askren. SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By WATCH US LIVE read more
It’s not a bad week for important WR injuries. JuJu Smith-Schuster has already been declared out (which his owners likely don’t mind), and we’ve already been graced with the returns of Will Fuller and T.Y. Hilton. Heading into Sunday’s games, Julian Edelman, Alshon Jeffery, Emmanuel Sanders, Deebo Samuel, Nelson Agholor, Mohamed Sanu, and Phillip Dorsett are the most important “questionable” wide receivers, but Week 12 fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions shouldn’t be impacted too much. We’ll have the latest updates below throughout the day. For news on banged-up players Tom Brady, Jordan Howard, and Adrian Peterson, click here; for updates on George Kittle’s status, go here; for the Week 12 weather report, click here. Follow us for more news and updates on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. Mohamed Sanu, Phillip Dorsett injury updatesUPDATE: Sanu and Dorsett are officially OUT.According to the Boston Herald, Sanu (ankle) is not expected to play on Sunday against the Cowboys, though ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported early Sunday morning that Sanu won’t make a final decision until after warm-ups, as he was feeling better on Saturday. Phillip Dorsett (concussion) is unlikely to play, as he’s yet to be cleared for football activities as of Saturday. Assuming both receivers are out, N’Keal Harry and possibly even Jakobi Meyers make for WR3 sleepers. Harry makes more sense as a boom-or-bust WR3 in standard leagues, but Meyers has more appeal in PPR formats. WEEK 12 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Julian Edelman playing Week 12?UPDATE: Edelman is officially ACTIVE.Edelman (shoulder) is once again listed as “questionable” despite not being a realistic injury worry the entire week. There’s no reason to expect him to sit when the Patriots play the Cowboys Sunday afternoon.Given New England’s spate of other WR injuries (see below), Edelman will likely see even more targets than usual. He’s a solid WR2 in standard leagues and a borderline WR1 in PPR leagues.WEEK 12 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endAlshon Jeffery injury updateUPDATE: Jeffery is officially OUT.After “trending in the right direction” all week, Jeffery (ankle) was listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.The expectation is that Jeffery will play (ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported as much early Sunday morning), and given the matchup against a leaky Seattle secondary that allows a lot of wide receiver receptions, he’s a viable WR3, especially PPR leagues.WEEK 12 DFS LINEUPS: FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | Y! cash | Y! GPPIs Emmanuel Sanders playing Sunday night?UPDATE: Sanders is officially ACTIVE.After getting in limited practices all week, Sanders (ribs) is “questionable” for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. It’s likely Sanders will be active, but like last week, he probably won’t be fully healthy or play a full complement of snaps. At this point, he’s a risky WR3, and given the prime-time start, you’d need to have another prime-time backup ready to go if he’s a surprise scratch. If he’s out, Deebo Samuel, who’s also questionable, and Kendrick Bourne would see the biggest uptick in targets.MORE WEEK 12 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderDeebo Samuel injury updateUPDATE: Samuel is officially ACTIVE.Samuel (shoulder) was limited in practice throughout the week, and like Sanders, he’s also “questionable” for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. The San Francisco Chronicle reports he is expected to play, though, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter echoed that early Sunday morning.Samuel has posted back-to-back eight-catch, 100-plus-yard games. He’s a decent WR3 even if Sanders and George Kittle (knee) are active, as both could be more limited than usual, though Samuel owners should temper their expectations a bit. Nelson Agholor injury newsUPDATE: Agholor is officially OUT.Like Jeffery, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Agholor (knee) is “trending in the right direction” earlier this week. He’s officially “questionable” for Sunday’s game against Seattle, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported early Sunday morning that he’s unlikely to play.If Jeffery plays, Agholor shouldn’t be started in fantasy leagues. However, if Jeffery is out, Agholor is in play as a WR3 in PPR leagues because of all the receptions Seattle allows to wide receivers. read more
