Listen: Lamar Jackson, Chiefs And Todd Gurley discussed on KNBR Tonight with Drew Hoffar & Kevin Frandsen
"Take a look at some of the match coming up this week. And we got some tasty ones. Indeed Sunday night football bears. Rams anyway that the bears defense could slow down this Rams offense. You think you know, the bears defense has been surprising. I think for everybody this year. They're getting more healthy to Khalil Mack out there. I'm not sure what to expect. I think there's gonna be some gives some take. I think the bears defense will have a good you remember the chiefs game. We saw against the Rams everybody says it was a it was a, you know, tons of office shootout for the ages. But there were three defensive touchdowns in this game easily. See this being another game where it's a bit of a shootout. But that the defense has an impact on whether or not that score does it. Yeah. That's a good call, man. And yet both of these teams have defenses that'll make plays. I think both defenses will turn the quarterbacks over. I do think that the Rams are a little more locked in offensively. I mean Todd Gurley is the ultimate x factor. The bears to re Cohen's been amazing. And we saw what he did against New York. Fourteen catches through the game tying touchdown there at the end. Deregulation as a bears fan frustrating. I mean, you come back. You get the onside kick you have to find a way to win that game that hurt but all in all very impressive performance last week for Todd Gurley yet again, and how about the the the Todd Gurley not running that touchdown in in Detroit and running know running. Yeah. And you like, no. But Todd Gurley owners could ever be pissed off at him. But then he ended up punching it in any way. So it was all three points. That's it for thirty three thirty three. I mean, he's I think at this point him and Pat Mahomes are you talking about fantasy MVP this year? They're the two finalists. And you know, what we'll see you the third name is in there. Maybe drew Brees somebody like that. But the other matchups this week. Let me ask you this Packers now without Mike McCarthy, and we see that sometimes that gives the team a bit of a, you know, a new renewed of doozy. Azam packers. Posting the falcons who are incomplete free fall. You see the the Packers getting after the falcons this weekend. Yeah. I do. I mean falcons on the rotor is a tough tough ask. Anyway, you just kinda had Julio Jones numbers there with the two catches eighteen yards this past week. Kevin Coleman had a rough game. I really do think. This is a a situation where you're going into Lambeau in December going to be rough for a team that plays endorse. Aaron rodgers. I would expect him and the team to rally around him. He's the leader. This is on him this week. I'm looking for big numbers from Aaron Rodgers. All right. A couple of other big time ups ravens and the chiefs, and we talked a little bit about this. I do think that this ravens defense can slow down the chiefs on the other side, though, you know, if you're Lamar Jackson, I think Lamar Jackson is actually a decent play this week because they're gonna have to score. I know I know that they want to try and keep that that scores lowest possible that's going to be advantageous to them winning the game. But hey, look the chiefs are going to put up points. We know that they're gonna find ways to score their electric and for the ravens they're going to need to let Lamar Jackson cut loose a little bit. I need him to start throwing the football. Now. I know he's got his shoddy core of receivers. But I think this is the week where Lamar Jackson maybe flirts with two hundred passing yards, which really that's all they need for him. Because he give you another fifty or seventy five on the ground. You get another one hundred fifty rushing yards as a team. And there you go you're on your way. That's how they win this game. They gotta let Lamar Jackson put in the air a little bit. I mean this team is three and a half since he's taken over the starting quarterback position. He only had one hundred twenty five pass yards last week. But two hundred yards the seventy five on the ground. You're right. They're going to have to go to the air a little bit more and they're going to have to get more comfortable with doing. So, but we just talked about this the receiving game for the ravens has got to change. If they want to help out Lamar Jackson like just in the off season. They're gonna have to add some more pieces. I think they are capable of making it a little run, maybe even towards the postseason here. I'm not sure the defense will hold up well enough against the chiefs. But I do think that this is an interesting matchup that could result in a loss for the chiefs in a much closer game than even the six and a half point spread indicates. There you go and then another really exciting matchup colts at the Texans. I mean the Texans have won nine in a row. Their defense is on the ascension colts just got shut out against Jacksonville. Now, they roll in needing this game to stay in the playoff hunt in the AFC. Basically if the colts lose this game making the postseason as a wildcard dip precipitously, Adam Copeland. So they need this one in a major way they're going to be hard pressed to go and energy stadium that text. Defense right now flexing its muscle. Hey texans. Have looked damn good into the Shawn Watson is come back completely strong say with Andrew lucked of the same can be said about him having a much better season than I think anybody anticipated. Hey, an honorary Bali that we didn't even mention out of the Houston Texans. How about how Fairbairn don't want to get into kicking range five or five last week? He had twenty plus fantasy points as well. So should be a good game. I'm not sure we're looking at a shootout. But I do think both quarterbacks will put us some good numbers. All right. And we'll talk about that on the other side as well. We'll get you some stardom or cinnamon lighter. Hop boys this week, as we know most folks already got your way reclaims tucked away. We're going to give you some matchups that we like some guys that you should play. Maybe some guys you should avoid. We'll do that in our final segment. It's fantasy football focus. Ryan kobe.
