Listen: Jalen Samuels, Philip Rivers And Adam Copeland discussed on KNBR Tonight with Drew Hoffar & Kevin Frandsen
"Focus podcast with Ryan Kobe. Adam Copeland on KNB are the sports leader. Follow the guys on Twitter at Ryan, Kobe and Adam codes. All right. Welcome back in fantasy football focus in lieu of hot boys this week. We're just going to take a look at some of the match ups, Adam Copeland. Jalen Samuels now in there for James, Connor. We know he's out in the Yahoo format. You can start them at the tight end position. Would you ever consider starting? Jalen Samuels this weekend over say a rob gronkowski. Yeah. You and I were just kicking this around the gronkowski thing is frustrated me all year because if you drafted him you took him in a position where you're probably taking them to be like a number one wide receiver. He said three catches in each of the last three games. He's played out. I say games not weeks because he went a month in between games from October thirtieth to November twenty nine th so three catches each of his last three games. Never freshening sixty yards so housekeeper got Jalen Samuels in offense. For the Steelers who are going into Oakland. And you saw the points. They gave up to the the Kansas City Chiefs expect him to continue to give up these poise. And you may be starting tight end who's getting running back carries. I think it's best case scenario if you picked up Samuel started meet your tight end. All right one for me. Just keep an eye on avoid any Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend. If you can why. Well, the saints defense the last four weeks they've allowed fourteen seven seventeen to thirteen points respectively. That's twelve point seven points a game. James Winston hasn't thrown any picks the last two weeks, you know, they're coming. He's overdue for a big turnover game stay away from all Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If you can avoid them this weekend. Absolutely. Do it. The other side of that though is Leshan McCoy who's had a disastrous season remembers one big breakout game a couple of weeks ago touchdowns. Yeah. That was against the New York Jets. Who were they playing this weekend? The New York Jets jets. Thank you. I know that doesn't necessarily mean that he's going to get that same level production, obviously. But he is comfortable running against that squad. So go ahead and lock in shady at the flex this week. If you feel like you've got a plan. You can I went on I picked up Jeff Wilson for the forty Niners. Who is looking like he's going to get a hefty work hard. Yeah. Yeah. Well, we just last week in Seattle. And then he he had of course, banged up for two. But he'll be in there for Matt Brita this week against the Broncos at home a couple of guys in the forty Niner offense, ping, ping interest. You mentioned Dante Pettis earlier I picked up Jeff Wilson. Delight Pederson Wilson this week starts. Yeah. I absolutely love pets this week. How about this last week? He was the first forty Niners rookie with one hundred yard receiving game since Teo back in ninety six and he was the first forty nine ers rookie with one hundred yards in two touchdowns since some cat named Jimmy Thomas back in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. So there you go Dante Pettis is an absolute burner. Three tugs last two weeks and looks like him. Nick Mullins got a decent report. He's a solid route runner too. There's a reason why the forty Niners traded up for this guy. I like where he's at right now. I think he can be a real sneaky player down the stretch here fantasy football playoffs. Now. How about on the other side of the Broncos playing the forty Niners. Defense who have been bad. They give a four passing touchdowns. A Russell Wilson last week. Look you asked me about keenum this past weekend. Keenum has been playing okay football. He doesn't throw a ton of touchdowns us going go over three thousand yards yet. Again this season. How do you feel case keenum? If you've got a plan this weekend. Yeah, I'm gonna voiding him. And as we're recording this podcast on Wednesday morning. There's a report on ESPN right now that Emmanuel Sanders will help to the locker room by trainers. Just before the end of Wednesday's Wednesday's practice with an apparent lower leg injury. So that's obviously a huge part of that offense be Portland Sutton. I think is a decent played this week. Philip lindsay. Absolutely. But I'd stay away from case keenum, you know, one guy that wouldn't be the worst play ever if you're desperate for a quarterback start. We talked about Mayfield Josh Allen with what he's doing running the ball as well. Now, we know they don't have any receivers, and they just got rid of Benjamin and Andre homes. But I think you could do a whole hell of a lot worse. The Josh Allen as a as kind of a stringer quarterback play this week. I think that's a good call. It's back to the AFC where we were talking about the earlier we were mentioning the chargers, I'm dealing with one team here. And you know when you. Got one team of four that makes the playoffs. You better be hit. When you get everything here. I took Philip rivers is my quarterback in the draft. I also take Carson Wentz. Because remember he started the season with an injury wags has been really hit or miss this year. Philip rivers has been money. You know, me I like, the consistency. Where are you this week with Philip rivers in the chargers versus Carson Wentz and the eagles? Oh, yeah. No. You gotta go Philip rivers at home against the Bengals. I mean Carson Wentz in Dallas against the Cowboys. Cowboys defense playing terrific look no further than what they did to drew Brees last week. That's an easy one for me. Philip rivers all damn day about the rest of the charges. How you feel in this weekend against Baxter. Locking low. The Bengals are an absolute joke and into the other side of that the only Bengals outplay Joe mixing is a desperation flex Tyler boy is gonna get you one hundred yards. We're about out of time fantasy football focused by the Waco. I."
