Mike Williams, Jared Cook And Chargers discussed on Fantasy Football Today Podcast


No matt ryan the five of eight. Okay matt ryan ryan didn't have twenty one. I think he was horrible in week. One my crazy. Maybe i'm maybe it's five of their last seven. Yeah it's five of their last seven. Yeah yeah okay. So start actor. And then. For the chargers wide receivers williams two straight games with two catches in less than thirty yards on five targets. And now i think he's going to see some darius slay so start. Who do you like better williams or allen and are they starts. I have allen ranked one spot ahead of mike williams. I like alan better. I think he's got the better match up. And i think that it's been proven now. We're the last couple of games for the chargers that if mike williams is in tight coverage or teams are doubling him which we saw the patriots do in the red zone on a number of occasions last week. Justin herbert's not dumb enough to throw it. Adam it'll go in a different direction. That's where jared cook comes into play because not only. Is it a favorable matchup for for jericho against philadelphia. But also that's a guy that's never ever ever gonna get double teamed when they're in the red zone. Would you start any of the waiver. Wire guys over mike williams. So we're talking devante parker boston. Scott peterson mcnichols. The only two that. I think i would are scott parker and right now. I've got parker a notch behind williams in the rankings. That's one. I could see myself changing pretty quickly. All right jared cook is just inside the top twelve gene. Another one would go ahead of. Mark hooper especially if lambs not there. So so okay. Let's keep an eye on the chargers cornerbacks because jalen hurts has been horrible. Throwing the ball against tough matchups hundred ninety eight yards at carolina Hundred and fifteen yards against tampa bay. Some people might not even consider them tough match-up but they've been playing better lately in their pass rushes obviously really good and Eighteen to thirty four. For two hundred and thirty six yards at las vegas but in every one of those games. He scored twenty two or more points. So that's why it's hard to get away from them. You have herbert ahead of her. It's jamie and heath do not but they're ranked similarly and the chargers allow the fourth fewest points to To quarterbacks so how about this dak mahomes car lamar jackson. None of them had a passer rating above eight philadelphia running backs. So i'm assuming scott's the only one you're interested in or are you interested in gain. Well no. I'm interested in scott gain well after what we saw last week. How could you possibly be interested. Yeah what can i tell people to make them believe that can gain wells going to have an important role also often when he was basically the mop up guy. Yeah but he threw fourteen passes last game so just just the score might might Evening maybe we just don't know. Because i don't know i can't trust him. Yeah and Seem like scott. Was really running ahead of jordan howard. So you're the high guy. Listen scott you got him in your day. I don't i really I'm i'm really excited about boston. Scott i i think he's gonna come through okay. You know one of my other favorite things that i like about boston. Skied is at. The chargers are allowing two point. One one yards before. Contact pa- rush. That's the second worst mark among defenses in the national football league three yards. It's basically three yards after contact Per rush that seventh worst so the the stats. The basic. Fantasy points allowed stats. They tell a certain story. This is another story. That says that they're just not doing good job of of making contact with running backs after they get the ball and that opposing offensive lines are being able to push their back and then running backs when they do make contact. They're still getting three yards on average every single time. So scott's the lead guy here he's going to get these good opportunities they clearly don't have a problem using them in short yardage situations. We didn't see him catch a pass last week. I know he can do that too. Yeah i think boston scott's gonna be terrific okay. I just a little intrigued by the improvement in run defense as they got their top defensive tackle back last week and they had their best game against the run Devante smith is a number three wide receiver. Would you start devante. Smith or
