Listen: Football, Steelers, Miami discussed on Waddle & Silvy
"Serious discussion going on here. Sorry, wattle asked an interesting question. Always asking interesting that fell on speaking of asking questions if you have a fantasy question for field. Now's the chance field Yates are fantasy expert normally on Fridays. Got so much going on with the twentieth. Anniversary tomorrow, though field has been kind enough to accommodate us here. A little Bill talk to him today and get ready for week six and we'll get to fantasy. But we always like starting with the bears and they go down to Miami field. And I. This is a Miami team. You look at them. And I know they won their first three games. Make a pretty good argument. They should've lost the Oakland game. But okay, they won. But they've been outgained in four straight. They seem to be reeling after these last two weeks. I don't think Miami's very good football team. But winning games on the road is hard. What are the bears have to be careful against going down to Miami this weekend? I tell you what guys I have a hard time. Figuring out how the dolphins won their first three games of the season. Now week one such a bizarre game against Tennessee for those who don't remember it. It was when the game took like seven and a half hours because of lightning delays down there in south Florida. If you think called the game on and off like four separate times. But since you know, they beat the jets, and like I don't know that I really bought into the dolphins three start. If they've come back down to earth though, significantly over the past two weeks. You know, I don't know that there's an area on Miami's Ross with you say to yourself like man that really scares you. And that's not the case for teams that are not very good in the NFL. But you think to yourself like all right? Like, you know, hey, whatever like not very good. Maybe not be may not be a great football team. But they've got a decent secondary. And it might not be so easy to Mark up and down the field. There's not an area for the dolphins. But I say to myself, I am totally afraid. Them if I'm an opponent. But know, the bears like you said like you gotta you really have to avoid letdown with the patriots game on the horizon and coming off of a three in one start. And now being the top the division. I think it's about managing expectations of the bears. Have to be mindful up what kind of growth did you see from Trubisky in that box game? I thought I thought competence, and I know. Yeah. Of course are confident you're throwing six touchdowns. But I think sometimes it you grow competent when you throw six touchdowns, I think you play competent to contribute to six touchdown. The other thing I think is important to see for Mitch Trubisky. And this is not necessarily specific that last game. But something that can be monitored throughout the season. Is that? Nagy is going to be really good in terms of scheming played early on in the game. We have seen the bears getting out to be red hot starts, and we've talked about this a little bit on the shell previously is when the play goes off script, or when the first readers an open Mitch trubisky's going to evolve from good player to potentially great player. There are a lot of weapons in place. They're going to be a difficult team to t- on one layers. Even if you don't believe the bears have a superstar talent the caliber of Odell Beckham junior Todd Gurley. They've got seven or eight guys can scare you it hurt you in a different way. I think that Mitch Trubisky can be the point guard and the distributor for a prolific oftens. Let's go around the legal little and then we'll take some fantasy questions here. Ask field. Use that hash tag on Twitter. Just send him directly to me at Carmen de Falco field Yates is our guest as we go around the NFL it's carbon in your co on ESPN one thousand and ESPN Chicago dot com. All right. Who are the Steelers in which team shows up against the surprising form one Bengals this Sunday. Yeah. This is sort of my litmus test for the Steelers this weekend. And I know you're probably thinking, it's we fix like how can you either not having opinion by them or say that like this is the time we learned something about the Steelers. But if you go through their games and the most recent game being the falcons one is like the falcons are good. But they're so beat up right now that it's hoping to have a true estimates of who the falcons are. So in terrorists, I don't know that I put as much stock in that win. I think other twenty four point win would be worthwhile. So the Steelers have traditionally had far less output offensively on the road than at home. I think a lot of people are aware of that. Because of the Ben Rothlisberger home rose fantasy football. The Steelers are really good offensively. But defensively I'm still not convinced. So this Sunday, it'd be a good test on the road against the Bengals offense that. Alden. He's been pretty good this year. Yeah. Very good. That offense has been good. Does anybody in the NFC east one to win that division? We're gonna find out tonight. Because Philly wins tonight people might feel at least temporarily like all right? Hey, you know, like we're back down to earth like us. All good here. You know, like, no one needs to worry. But let's just say the giants win tonight. That would put the eagles killing for the giants. The two and four the Cowboys three and the Redskins topped the division for now at two and two. But think about Philly like Philly has the giants tonight and they play the Panthers. The Jaguars in London. Cowboys which I think we don't feel like as much of a test. But in the state in New Orleans like like, I don't want to say it's a must win because I don't like to use that term in football. And was actually a must win like in the play offs January. Yeah. I mean, it's close to it right now for the eagles for a team that I think is still a little bit of identity. Search right now, I tend to bet on a team that has the championship pedigree that Billy does. So I get the job done tonight, and they write ship a little bit. But it's been a slow start a slower start than I anticipated. That's how we start Thursday night football for week six that Philly game in New York tonight. I it's Twitter questions for field. This is from Kevin Calvin Ridler Doug Baldwin in a flex spot. CPR? You know, Doug, Baldwin has a better chance of more targets. But I really like I don't like game against the bucks. Take the upside play. I don't know what the upside is right now balden I could eat my words next week. But right now, wouldn't you want that he doesn't feel like if one of those two players is more likely to go for two touchdowns in a game. It's got clearly Calvin really again I'd bookkeepers against them. We'll look at what we saw with the bears. Did did that box defense. I think you make a salient point. I'd probably ride with Ridley at home against that bucks. Defense this week. Even though the baby matchup David has a flex question. PR again will fuller James white or sterling Shepard. Yeah. I mean, I'm assuming teepee are you? Okay. You gotta go James Wii. I mean, he has been unbelievable so far for the patriots this year at least fourteen fantasy points in every game. And the patriots may want to establish the run on Sunday against the chiefs. The idea making this really simple that the best way to slow down. Patrick home. Just keeping them off the field by chewing up cloth. But starting Michelle for the patriots has been limited so far this week and gave white certainly is not going to lack in terms of touches. And he's such a valuable part of that passing game. I'll go James wife brand says he picked up a CJ Beathard is he is start over Dak this week. Yeah. I mean, listen I start either one of those players. I'd go with CJ Beathard for the hope of them being down by twenty points and him throwing a couple of garbage time passes late. That's all it takes in some cases. I would try to make a trade or a quarterback. Elsewhere, assuming that nothing on the waiver wire is more desirable than Dako Beth from Nick flex question. Again, here a lot of flex questions. AP Austin Hooper to recall one. Terry Collins here, we'll see a baby plays. Why better information on that later on this week probably by tomorrow? And you know, we'll Hooper it's fine. You had a nice game last week nine catches. You know, something guys. Hey, there's like six good tight ends in the NFL fantasy the rest of them are just Dr throws, you know, like man's McDonald like crush, Chris Conte soul had a great game Monday night football and everybody was like. Yeah. But you gotta play dance McDonald. And then he had to catch the next week. Just the way the wind blows with tight end. So when I can I avoid flexing tight ends and life. It's gronk Kelsey hurts healthy Greg Olsen player. Trey Burton players that you maybe have two of to recount Paul needs another flex question here, Paul needs TJ yelled dinner. Josh, gordon. Wow. That's great great dilemma to habit. I go through the yelled at I don't think it's that close in this case, Josh boarded may have a better chance. Even if it's a really slim would have going for thirty points because we know he's electric talented should entheogen played more and more each week. But probably touch the football twenty twenty five times this week against the Cowboys. I would go into a couple more Carlos standard. Robert woods Tyler Lockett, Allen Robinson Cooper copy needs to cops a little bit banged up. Right. Yeah. I think the good news here is this is so Cup is from protocol. Don McVay, the Rams head coach has said expect them, you know, he's he. I think because he expects them, but he's feeling positive about the overall for cat for Cooper Cup and Brandin cooks. I'd go with those two Rams wide receivers. The only thing that's giving me a bit of pause. And I don't know if you guys do in the forecast for Denver on Sunday. But it's supposed to be twenty degrees and snowy. I mean, first of all way too early on for that. Oh my God. I've got pitcher in laws live in Denver. And then people never will remind you that it could be twenty degrees of selling on Sunday and seventy five and sunny on Monday, but still this Sunday. Boy, I would not want to be in the stands for that game. So based on that Matthew is trying to decide between this is. I mean, God what a good position Mathewson Mahomes Goff this week. Yeah. I go with my home. Yeah. And it's a great to be what I would really consider is trying to trade one of those two player. Maybe padding you're running back a wide receiver depth elsewhere. If you wanna wait through the bye week of one of those players, you don't have to deal with adding another quarterback later to fill in for that by I understand it. But at the great great problem to have absolutely do a more here from Tim Tyler Lockett or Keenan Allen and a flex spot. Now, I understand there's been a little bit disappointing. So far this season hasn't scored since week one. But you know, in the way that Keenan Allen's touchdown streak is likely to end so to Tyler Lockett, and he keeps I feel like every game. There's one role where he just gets unaccounted for lows passed the defense. But I can't imagine that happens every single week. I know great speed. He's all really all they have along with Doug Baldwin there. But I would certainly be thinking Keenan Allen this week and every week in that situation Bill. Thanks as always enjoy the weekend. We'll talk to you next Friday and garage relations. Did you guys in the entire station on an incredible run one of my favorite stations in the country? And for good reason. Thanks, buddy shit that. All right. All right, guys Seafield. That's field Yates a great run. Tremendous fields, a rising star within the company to tomorrow's the big celebration up at Austin's, their car, Libertyville, Libertyville all going to be there shops, a tweets Shams.

Sham's tweets timber wolves all star Jimmy Butler called a players only meeting today, airing his feelings towards the situation management per league. Sources Butler expressed to the players he would compete with them as signs pointing to him staying with the franchise into the regular season. Wow.
