"Over to the jaguars side lawrence is actually fourteenth for jamie or close to that and he has does not have them in the top twenty four so Dolphin you can look at the overall numbers for the dolphins and they look like a bad defense. I would say they were a below average defense before the bucks game. Their numbers look a lot worse. Because of what brady just did just at my they. They gave up seventeen fantasy points in week. One then twenty. Two josh allen then twenty-five to derek carr in overtime then twenty one to carson wentz rushing touchdown that got taken away from. Because he's lived through. That is true. That did happen josh. I don't i don't think that for me. The dolphins are not one of the match ups that matter like i think they're just average may be mediocre but they have allowed the most past plays of twenty plus yards. So that is something to keep an eye on And and that was even before the pay the bucks game. They were very high there too. So they're giving up some big place with that. Said you obviously would start james robinson. He's top ten in both formats. Who i guess. Who's the best wide receiver in this game. Martin waddell. who's the second best while marvin jones. Okay so we've got the same top top to marvin jones and waddell. I'm trying to think. Aj brown or receiver in this game. No era aj brand. Dan arnold or evan ingram. Arnold arnold dan arnold or now just like there's nothing you said. It's cook yeah right jerry. Still be over arnold. I would still. I would start Arnold a dsp in this game. The dolphins like the dolphins more than jacksonville. Yeah almost every team has been really good against jacksonville but bengals on that thursday night. The only exception there houston was good against the jaguars tennessee's the seo against the jaguars and that brings us the houston and indianapolis stat of the game. I doubt this matters. But i'll give it to you anyway. The texans allow the most fantasy points. Too tight ends. They and they haven't faced great tight ends either. They faced knocks. They faced henry. Tommy tremble had a rushing touchdown press manhertz. At a touchdown molly has not been a complete non factor. Is he something. Do you have been ranked in the top. Fifteen he's touchdown bus guy. You know. I like that if the are receiving last week so trending in the right direction. But we know molly molly does he has a good game and then he disappears for like they have three tight ends..

"Event something. Yeah everett's i don't remember something and tyreek hill at fourteen yards against baltimore portland. Sudden had forty seven yards. So they've done well against number one. It's also like you know we. We can't even sit. Sit here and say a sutton. You throw that game for him. He got throughout the game for the ravens secondary also because that was drew lock wasn't entirely drew lock. Though well i mean it was bridgewater not getting a full game yeah fair and then as far as the chargers go i mean look at the wide receivers. They face maclaurin the cowboys. The chiefs the raiders. The browns and they They've been really good so okay. These guys are starting. I mean keenan. Allen people might be frustrated with keenan allen. You've total phase him this game. Total faith i like. You're not starting pittman over him. You're not starting tony over him yet. You shouldn't To patrick over him you know like it. Yes okay. there's be big games coming. Yeah i don't really even know why people are questioning. I agree with you. But i mean no. I don't agree with that entirely. I understand why they are questioning him. I don't i think we all consider to be a great bilo. But i understand the concerns because he's never been the number two wide receiver you know and people. Cia understand but generally speaking. It's when this happened. It's we take a guy who was drafted in round three or something and he's had a really bad season and we're like man can we keep. Aj brown can we keep trusting. Aj brown keenan allen has had a couple of monster performances i think he scored at least twenty fantasy points at nineteen fourteen twenty ten and thirteen. Rsvp are totals. That's even if it's not what you paid for a must start wide receiver. Yeah but if you're headed what more do you expect. If you're in half pr or non after nine pbr. Two different story. Yes plus like he had a hundred yards and each was first two games. Fifty thirty six and seventy five in his last three. So it's recency bias. This is always been the problem with him is. He's a format guy. So he'll give you good games in in non-poppy are better games than happy. He's going to give you great games. Npr because that's the type of player that he is. Are there any tight ends that you would have picked up off. Waivers that you'd start over. Jared cook this week like dan. Arnold jacker hunter henry. Henry not consider. Dan arnold to be honest with you arnold as well Then that's pretty much. If you again like what. I said about fire move. If you have a league pickup donald farm. He start to play more He scored into straight. And i think at some point they may be a switch coming. And i think if you are an shallower leagues. I'm guessing he's rostered in deeper leagues..

"I mean. that's the thing that matters you know. So yeah but he yeah. He's got to three catches and three or four games. What was i going to say here. Would you start. Moss or manual sanders moss. Would you start mosser. Devante booker ma. I might move. I've got. I've got gaskin daryl williams and booker all back to back to back in one order another and i've got moss right behind them. And i just might move moss ahead of the three of them okay. We talked about the wide receivers. Here and tennessee allows the most fantasy points the wide receivers they. Yeah they stink. And i don't like. I'll just still stand for my guy. Even though i'm all in on zach mazdas starting running back. I don't think as a boomer bust flicks devon single. Terry's a terrible play because of his big playability and how bad the titans defense has been. Yeah i think that's a great point. He and i think some people are going to start to get to the point. Where are you dropping devon. Single-story don't do that because moss's still got that injury track record and they're still playing him. Even though the the snap count was so skewed one way. I it's closer to sixty forty as opposed to seventy thirty you know. So we're seventy five twenty five days. So i think you're still going to get devon single terry games just to have them single terry moments. I don't want get to the point where we're sitting here on a tuesday and saying why are you picking up. Why why did you drop them saying. Don't one dawson knox's top seven and the titans actually give up the second fewest points. The tight ends but they have not really faced any good ones. They give up sixty yards dan. Arnold sixty four yards. Dan our last week so knox is a start knocks or erz knocks or scholtz rank. Those three knox erz. I'm sorry schultz knocks earth in all formats i've got scholtz knocks hurts in non schultz earth's knocks. Npr ryan tannehill is a sit. We really respect respect and fear the bills defense. It's it's a tremendous unit. Derrick henry is a start and then. Aj brown is outside the top twenty. But we'll do some flex questions brown. Or zach moss moss. Yeah i've i've got both the cowboys in both the seahawks jay brown and devante smith tonight man. Okay let's see. Aj brown or emmanuel sanders.

"He said. the only player. I think which You would maybe struggle with the allies. Tony you know the guys who got picked up and pr. I would probably start tony over. Lock it but otherwise. I was starting to seattle guys over him still and i would start everybody of the main guys in tonight's game so the three bucks guys devante smith over both seattle receivers. I do devante smith behind them. Tony is one. I didn't mentioned. I've got him right. Between mccafe it and it will. But if shepard and slayton are both active. I'm probably have him behind locked okay. I don't think most people are gonna bench metcalf because you know he's he's just different. You know i mean you. Saw him catch a touchdown from smith last week you know lock. It's in the midst of another one of his slumps. And so without russell wilson there. It's easier to get away from him. Especially given the capital metcalf was by by most accounts the second round. Pick lock it was four five six depending on how your draft unfolded so you may have other options. That are that are better than thought. Lock it so while he's you know quote unquote slumping. They debts targets last week. But he's this fancy production slumping. He's got to get away from. I don't know i. I would read jude my team because i think it's relevant in terms of metcalf decision but i don't want people to hate me for reading my team. I promise much is your team at. I'm not trying to spend lineup here. But we have three receiver spots and a flex. And we have mike evans decay. Metcalf markey's brown. Devante smith chase klay pool. Plus chuba hubbard and yeah. That's it and shubra hubbard. Basically and i might have to sit metcalf now. I'm gonna start metcalf over devante smith. There's starting over. Metcalfe i'd just i know that's exactly what i would say. This decision gets tougher. If you've got metcalf in your flex and mccaffrey's ruled out. So i'm going to start klay. Pull over devante smith and thursday night in never mind. That's never mind thinking about thursday night. Okay all right. We'll move on. i'm not trying to just. There are decisions to be made with. Became right my bad for that detour. Stone start gino. Smith although you could to. Qb league what are you going to do. and then let's talk about the running backs here. So if chris scenario jamie starting sit if chris carson plays and then if he doesn't i would like to avoid the seattle backfield again. You got dad. Potentially bad quarterback play steelers. Have been awesome against the run. I think that'd be able to touchdowns running back to not mistaken on the season rushing passing it is true and carson less than one hundred percent if he's in is going to be shuffling in and out with him in collins. If the game gets sideways for the seahawks in steelers have lead by what however happens You know you could see carson coming off the field so i i would at best their.

"F t. go ahead. I just tweet that. That might have caught. graham release. I and certainly will catch your eye. Because there's several repeated words in this tweet But you know and this might explain some things for your switch but you know what the current top ten. Nfl draft order is right now for next year. He's brought it up last week. I know the eagles have three top. Ten picks yes they do. Three top picks five six and ten if the season ended right. Now my god. They are thanking the right way. They're not even trying to tank good for so you're gonna pick the washington football team to win the nfc east now. The giants i then you picked the eagles. Yeah and the eagles. When i really believed the cowboys the cowboys are gonna have that by thanksgiving on thanksgiving. They will clinch. Who which crappy team do they get to play on thanksgiving. I wonder probably the giants. I'd probably washington. Yeah they'll clinch the division. We got some new. Yeah because they're going to beat up on their vision. Yeah right the nfc west going to beat each other up at some point cowboys defense. How good is the nfc west now. Two teams are great. Seattle colonels and rams. Yeah but but the forty niners is still sneak in there and give you a game like they almost beat the cardinals cardinals who i don't remember the scores. Seventeen points or something like that Cowboys raiders on thanksgiving already. I'm getting hungry okay. Let's let's okay. Here's a new segment it's called. Let's make a let's make. Let's make change rakic okay. I bullied you inappropriately. Add wrongly the last two weeks into moving. A dsp actually did now. I'm gonna make you move one down. He you are way too high on the ravens. The them forth going up against the chargers chargers are making a cross country trip and that's really difficult on opposing offenses. I don't feel like i kind of when i saw this..

"For fifteen yards And be twenty four running back. If you only consider running backs that were started in seventy percents. No about forty percent of leaks. But i just don't think the patriots are going to be able to run that much. They've been much more pass heavy this year than what we anticipated. And i'm not sure that you can know who's going to get the carries after harris's fumble last week and the cowboys have have seen the fewest rush attempts by running backs per game. They're basically tied with the bucks. It's not because they have. This vaunted run defense. We know why it is. I mean they just score a lot of points and they make you throw said booker. I do think had sixteen carries last week. But that was that was out of the Out of the ordinary against dallas. Jamie who are you avoiding. i would like to avoid. aj brown. I know he's been struggling. Only one touchdown on the season and better days ahead so by now but the bills defense is tough Offensive line's bad for the titans. Julio jones may not may now play so who knows what. The targets here will be It feels is going to be bad game for the titans. If the bills defense shows up like it hasn't been so you the only one i would start clearly derrick henry but he's not even a top five running back from this week will he'd be the first running back to have more than forty five rushing yards against. Yeah i mean. You're still starting derrick henry but if this was a regular slate i would say he's a an avoid for sure. Dfs okay all right so some high end guys there and Yeah well at least. I guess no one guy in. Aj brown but yes. The patriots running back is going to be tough to trust this week as well. I am going to avoid grammatical errors. I probably shouldn't have said to start. The sentence. grammar early would not have been happy with that. Everybody used grammar lead dot com slash f f. T go there get a discount grammar. Lee dot com slash f.

"And that's couldn't the start percentage for alexander madison. It was only about fifty fifty six percent or something like that. Well do you remember the last time people got excited about starting alexander madison but everybody gets week seventeen weeks seventeen. He had a huge game. He had well over one hundred yards score two touchdowns Yeah any at twenty seven touches in this game. He was a total league winner or week winner. I should say yeah. I look running backs tough. We're pretty good honey performances today. But it's tough to find a workhorse. That's for sure. So you're barclay manager. You gotta be encouraged by that at least you know. He's the workhorse. Although he did come he did come up looking like he was injured at least three times in that game it was really hold. Your breath was saquon. Barkley my one of my big takeaway is There's only one travis kelsey. This is now to disappointing games. In a row for darren waller. Who's the second best receiving tight end in. Football hopkinson was horrible today. Kyle pits was horrible. Against what should have been a good matchup andrews back back in you back in the good graces. but he's had two disappointing games. Kittles had to one disappointing game. One game where he was fine and he plays tonight. Yeah there's only one travis kelsey incredible all right The big news tyler. Lockett hurt his knee and decay. Metcalf was shaking up in the fourth quarter. Very late in that game. Unless it's a i hope it's not a concussion or anything obviously but it looks like we've avoided serious injury there for lock it and metcalf log. It played on the final drive to okay. I didn't see any watch without a limp. After the game like reporters were talking to him. He seems fine. All right good good. Aj brown and julio jones on the other hand aj brown hamstring injury in the first quarter. And then julio what happened with julio jones. They were limiting his work at the end. I don't know it was weird. He did not play All that much down the stretch. How many passes did they throw the.

"At Titans. AJ Brown collects the pass from Ryan Tannehill for 13 yards, and it looks like the Titans are starting to slowly claw their way back against the Cardinals. The score, though, is 24 to 13 cardinals on top. What were you going to say? I can't remember what I was going to say for yourself Really Hit the drop on me. Keep moving. Just give me a heads up. That's all I'm asking for. But an interception at about mid field is what put the Titans in position here to put on points they're going to need to win that turnover battle can buy art made that play with the pick, and this is a defense that have been opportunistic. In years past. They need to be in that position here to make some things happen. It's why you like the Titans a year ago. Maybe they can climb back here with that. One. ESPN radio's presented by Progressive insurance You can save big when you bundle your auto home, motorcycle, RV or boat. Just visit progressive dot com. Alright, so we've been talking a lot to get up for obvious reasons about these one o'clock kicks. Well as we move into the next time slot here, the Browns and the Chiefs are clearly is clearly the featured game. For a lot of different reasons. Well, now we have some news as to who is not playing in this matchup. Odell Beckham Jr has been ruled in active for the season opener for the Browns. And then on the other side for the Chiefs. Tyrone Matthew is out as well. So two key players now but not playing in this matchup, and maybe you're sitting at home thinking well, is Odell fully healthy? Yes, By all accounts fully healthy, he is an active for whatever reason. Maybe we'll have more information here on that shortly in this matchup again against the chief, so it's browns and chiefs that can Cough is at 4 25 eastern. And there will be no Odell Beckham Jr for the Browns, and there will be no Tyrone Matthew for the Chiefs now, J. Let's stay on this match up really quick. Because there's a couple different things I want to say. First of all, the Chiefs are clearly the favorite in their division in the FC all of the above, But I do feel like if there's ever a team that can compete with the Chiefs. In this matchup, it could be the Brown for a couple different reasons. One They arguably have the best offensive line in the National Football League like Patriots are up there. Browns are up there and then who's behind that offensive line? And I'm not talking about Baker Mayfield. Nope. I am talking about Nick Chubb and what he is able to do in that 12 punch with that running game because they have it. And what is the way to score points against Patrick Mahomes in the chief's? Well, keep the offense off the field, and you can do it. If you have a solid run game like the Browns do right now, against a very good offensive line. And so now they don't have Odell Beckham Jr. Which obviously is a loss because he is a dynamic player, but they're used to this right. They didn't have Odell Beckham Jr for most of the year last year, and so what will they be able to do? J against the Chiefs today? Well, it's unfortunate that LBJ is not going to be out there because it was one of the big things. I wanted to see Shay with the Browns offensively, and when you don't have Oh, BJ out there. I want to see them stretch the field. I wanted to see a guy in Baker Mayfield, who rarely took shots downfield. Start takes panned what he had in the bag a little bit with that one of the personnel doesn't call for it. You won't necessarily necessarily see that here but with the Browns do have is they have a revamped defense. They have continuity on the offensive side of things, which is something Baker Mayfield has never had in his career. But it's the show me time for him and for him to come out here and go head to head with the standard at the quarterback position, the best of the best in Patrick Mahomes on the other side and the best of the best in terms of the team that the Chiefs bring out there to the field. This is going to be the start of a lot of scrutiny being under that magnifying glass and saying, Okay, you want to bet on yourself, Baker, we as a browns franchise wanted to see more. It starts today. Yeah, you're right. It does start today again. Nick Chubb and Korean Hunt the two backs for the Browns. And can they put it together without having the speedster? No. Dave Beckham Jr was supposed to play but again inactive. Today. All right, let's go to Detroit. 49.
NFL Wide Receiver Rankings 2021
"Football is right around the corner today. We're going through our consensus wide receiver. Reggie everybody likes wide receiver. Don't they wide receiver right gang. Judge go this is a big one guy. You can win your drafts with a lot of these wide. Receivers that we're about to talk about even if you drop them round one and round two and round three. Yes you certainly can. But we'll get to some. They can get much later. That are going to provide a lot of value in two thousand twenty one year. Yeah i can honestly say that. The one draft strategy to draft chinese. I've never taken a quarterback around one. And i have not taken a wide receiver in round one of any of my drought so far even super flex even supervise just getting. We just got some breaking news on sleeper that darryl henderson was injured in practice not return man would that be a huge injury to the rams funk season is funky town yeah davy jones. One of 'em jake fog or just a staffer. The woods cup higby season all adds to a man there on. Oh i hit. He's not gonna do me dirty two years in a row. That was a a when you're saying he is buy his jersey. If you finish for you. Oh i think i have to. That's too bad center role egg. I mean i. I don't own for that would be the economic shared the name first letter of the last name. I think it's a lot gusting at speaking injury. In preseason at all the things what are some preseason thoughts on wide receivers anything standing out or any injuries standing out anything. We should be on the lookout for as we get closer to the season. Starting all it's been kind of interesting like if you go to. Espn and just look. At the wide receivers. Half of them are listed as questionable. We're still a couple of weeks away from the season. So it's not overly alarming at this point but there are some injuries that are more alarming than others. That will get shortly. But let's start with our top wide. Receivers are we have devante adams tyreek hill stefan big calvin ridley the andrea hopkins and aj brown rounding out our top six. Which one of these guys do you wanna talk about. I think we could talk about devante. Adams tyreek hill. Just be as. I think i flip flop though is at least thirty times this off season gone back and forth between the two especially with rogers coming back. I don't wanna put davante adams at number one. You know contract year roger. They're going to go the big last dance. He's going to have all of the targets that he wants think he can get two hundred targets in a season. I don't but i think he's going to pace wide receivers when it comes to target. So i have devante adam just my number one. As well i think the touchdown potential. He is the favourite to lead the league in receiving touchdowns this year. Aaron rodgers coming back. That chemistry is as good as any quarterback wide receiver in the entire league. Yeah i had tyreek hill number one until aaron rodgers. I made it official that he was coming back and then davante adams shot right back up to number one. I have devante at number two tyreek at one. Like i said i flip flop all over but even as projections. I have devante adams at one hundred and sixty five targets. And i think that's conservative to be honest. I think it is still i. I got about one seventy five. Yeah i don't think he comes anywhere near two hundred I have team range. That one one sixty one seventy i. I also kind of a little bit worried. I think this offense could be worse than it was last year and cobb amari rounders are two factors that they did not have last year. That are legitimate receiving options. I do think that devante adam. I'm not gonna say this. I think he could actually Kind of disappoints fantasy owners this year. I'm not projecting it that way. But i see the path to it happening this year. Unlike in yourself.

"There's talk that saquon is gonna practice. They've got this going practice. This week finds being debbie downer on no. It's more of a handcuff item. I have my doubts about whether booker would really be a good handcuff. Anyway if berkeley got hurt cam. Newton will miss three days of practice. Due to a at least three days. I think Due to a mistake with the cove protocols. Bill belichick also did not rule out using both quarterbacks in platoon which would be smart hunter. Henry still not fully healthy. These kind of practicing jonah. Smith returned to practice today. How about this report from the athletic marchese could lose snaps to austin tate in the regular season. Unbelievable jamie. this one's all human demark as Somebody that you got to be a little bit concerned about where he was going. And when you're looking at him by comparison to higgins and even tyler board npr. You can make a case that one is better than the next depending on who you ask them with arguments. I was already getting. Close to booming t higgins over jas sports science projects. Already have higgins over chase. So it's it's kind of easy to look at it from the short term versus the long term short short-term higgins may have better start long-term awfully tastes better but it may take some time to get up to speed up and playing football since nineteen and so. This isn't a run away from our taste. This is a stupid story if it unfolds in. If you're the bengals how dumb could you possibly be if you pass on console to draft martinez. In he's maybe this bad But i don't think he's going to be this bad. I think he's going to be a superstar still and you should be trying to acquire jamarcus in trade if people are panicking over him He's still around five. But again higgins has a chance to be the better receiver already okay. Julio jones and aj brown. Let's talk about them. Julio jones not practicing. Aj brown expected to be ready for week. One he's not he. I think he's warming up and then going to locker room. Something like that but Dave you mentioned actually on fantasy football today in five that julio jones is a bit of a rankings follow for you just because he's he's not on the field as in practiced in august. Maybe he practice on august. I i don't have that specifically but really hasn't practiced in a while. We know what is upside is and we remember his downside when he's just not on the field. You can't start on me sits on your band. She's a pretty little ornament..

"Zeevi disagree. When you're trying to nominate i like to have people on my roster that i want that i like a lot that i know i have secure because you don't want to get in desperation mode that gets real bad real fast as in okay. Seven out of the ten running backs for gone. I need to get one of the next three. And now you know you're paying a premium so the hardest part is securing the talent that you really really want and doing so in nominating. Kind of like what you said. So okay i want cooper cop start at twenty seven i like your strategy on starting there but obviously not pay an arm and a leg. I also don't want to have too much money out there where everyone else is paying premium. It's securing those elite players like tire. Lock it you know like when we're when we're on the clock next week. When do i throw him out when it's in the middle of the draft and is already the first four round of wide receivers are gone and he's the next best available. That's probably not the best time. The best time i'll maybe tire lock it would be when. Aj brown is still available and people are looking at their list. Tire lock is going up. He's going to twenties and you say well that's still. Aj brown. I still allen robinson. And i still got so and so i think that's when you do it but it's still a lot easier said than done. Yeah that's a great point because timing is everything with some of these positions and there's always a point in the auction where you're like. There's a player and indus for our listeners to nominate mean so the snake draft you take turns taking pick you have the seven. Pick you pick when it's your turn. The only difference is an auction when when you're up instead of making a draft pick you nominate a player for everybody to bid on so that's what we mean by nominating but yeah. It's timing. is everything if he gets to a point in the auction where it. I've been in this situation a bunch of times where i'm like. This is player really wanna nominate but like chess. Not say anything people forget about him or is everybody thinking. that's the best part fours. Everybody thinking the same thing everybody else waiting on him as well. so you really have to make that calculation. It's not easy because you gotta kinda read the room a little bit. You gotta look at the landscape. See who's who's available and that's why it's so important to be in on every player because let let's say you really want lock it and you have no receivers in knee. Lock it and you don't get him because there's always that one person that has a lot of budget two. That's why it's always important to look at the room around you and if you're if you're an online draft. It's easier to do this. You can just click on each team individually and see who has what who has what budget available and you if you know the person you kinda know their their their habits in terms of from an auction standpoint kindly what players they like are they aggressive and You wanna factor all that in. It's awesome thing about an auction is so much stuff to consider. Ms it's my point. That's why you always gotta be on every player because you never wanna be playing a game of musical chairs. And you're the one left standing without a chair to sit in right. Yeah so if you wanna get player would you can. If you don't get player. A player in the top twenty nominations. I think at that point. You need to start being a little aggressive and doing something because you just don't want to get to the point where there's literally. Okay this is the last player of this tier now. Everyone's bidding on them too. That's going to happen every single auction as a matter. Who is at player. Who is that player left in the tier in did you want him in the first place or not in my example of lock and and people looking at aj brown's available and chiasso available. I mean this is exactly what i do. Is i someone up there. I checked the price. I see where it's going to calculate all this at the same time but what i also do is i say okay. You know tire lock. It's going up. Okay joe brown. Still there mean obviously title at. I want per say asia brown was going. I would say well maybe i don't need. Aj brown. i've got. I've got my price tag on on tyler lockett. I've got my price tag on robert words. I can spend this on them and still secure them. Which is all obviously a hypothetical. But i still need to be ready and available as mentioned because if aj brown is going to go for an amount that is super reasonable. I might as well just secure that talent right then and now it because who knows tyler lockett might actually go for more. Which we've all seen happened before. Yeah i think the best deals in option are at the beginning. How you wanna see me like the first half hour. The first like ten nominations at the beginning at the end. I think those are the two times when you get that because you at the beginning you capitalize on people's hesitation people takes people a while to wake up at the beginning and then at the end when when people don't have the money don't have the roster spots the beginning of the end of the two times in the auction generally speaking when you have the best opportunity to capitalize and get and get players that really good value or over plant players. Yeah that more casella. You might get a couple of people. You're going to get some people in the middle but they were going to. They're going to go fly right by shit. What just happened but yes one hundred percent. Okay i i love auctions. If you guys haven't tried them he you know go out in in use some mock draft tools testimot set up. A new league is a tremendous amount of fun. There's a lot of anxiety and a lot of other things that we described as well. But i think we've put a. It's really tough because we can't talk about prices in auction leagues the way we can in breakdown.

Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 02
"We're going to hop right back into it and we're going to start with rishaad bateman from the baltimore ravens. He was picked with the twenty seventh overall. Pick in nfl draft. And there's been a lot of conversations about rashaad bateman as to where he compares to some of the other receivers in this class. I know in particular out of people have been comparing him to rondo more but is there a conversation to be made that he's better than other receivers qadir's tony that went before him. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this call. Would you have to say about rashaad bateman. Yeah as far as a baby. And he's a guy that i think. A lot of other people in the industry were were higher on that. I was going into the draft. One thing i do think kind of happen with his leaning spot is these kind of seemed to fall down in some bricky drafts that i've seen and he's kinda back to where the place that i kinda thought he should be all long You know if he falls any further than where he he's kind of going like i've seen him fall as far as like Seventeenth overall in in some superplex ethic. That's just a little bit of over reaction from the from the market you know It probably settle down. He'll probably move up a little bit more as addressees goes along closer to the season. But i think there's people need to be really careful because we saw with. Aj brown where he went to a a a lesson desirable situation a few years ago and people You know pushed him down too late. I you know second second round rookie drafts and turned out to be a pretty big mistake you know. You can't overreact. To situations. Lamar jackson still developing as a passer. And we really don't know whether the baltimore offense may open up or not you know the part of the reason why they might be writing so much inhabit says low volume and passing is because they really dependent on their own their defense and the running game but it also might be an issue because they didn't have the water receivers with the skill sets the to produce so bateman adds a very vital piece in my opinion that they did not have or last couple seasons in in a possession. Receiver know that moves change as well as a another red zone threat to help out with mark andrews because really their receivers have not been responsible for touchdowns last and Marquees brown where i think. He's a good. football player. Is for a stretching the field when he's healthy i. I'm not sure that he's the type of guy that you really want to depend on in dynasty especially in ppo release because he's not going to have a high volume with the with the average depth of targets that he gets. I'd argue that this landing spot for bateman is fantastic landing spot for a rashad baby because you have an offense here with mark. He's brown and like you said. Mark brown is used primarily as deep that this is not a guy that's gonna be demanding by receiver one targets. I think he's gonna be demanding some targets. But he's the guy that's a good deep threat and he's going to have big games here and there but the baltimore. Ravens are lacking a number one receiver. And they haven't had a number one receiver for quite some years. And i can't remember quite frankly the last time they had a number one receiver and resod bateman guy to me that could hop right in there in become a true number one receiver for the baltimore. Ravens this is a great possessing catch. This is a guy that is just an all great receiver. He's going to be a great match with lamar jackson. And he's probably gonna get some solid targets away out of the gate and so i was. I'm pretty how. I was pretty high on them. Before the draft started. I had him publicly about my fourth or fifth best receiver and landing spot to me. Doesn't change anything for rashad bateman. I still think he's worthy of a late. I ask pick in dynasty rookie drafts. You could depends. Maybe even a little bit higher. But i think overall basements a great receiver and i would even argue because i know a lot of people are considering bateman to be the top of the second tier for receivers. But i would argue that. Maybe he should be considered with the first tier receivers as well because if considering jalen waddell to be in that first year a battisti receivers this year now. People are than i have to make the case. The bateman is right up there with jalen waddell because you look at geelong competition and wolf Devante parker for targets. And then you look at batman's competition for targets as well and you have like brown and the opportunity is actually better for the women's and i'd have to argue that. Lamar jackson is a better quarterback than a tiger. Ryo as well and yes. I know that they've been known for the running game in the past. But i think that's naturally because they haven't had an alpha dog receiver like rishaad based in also rashaad. Bateman is a guy that is going to be able to handle a lot more targets than jalen watteau. I don't see as high as many targets in receptions for jalen models i actually think that rashad bateman of very good receiver and he's someone worth considering in your dynasty rookie draft him would be a great value. Fell to like the back half of the first round in your dynasty rookie draft okay. Let's move on

Colts face different Titans' threat with Ryan Tannehill at QB
"Sunday. It is the titans and Ryan Tannehill. Dan Hill really happy for him. By the way at the Indianapolis Colts Starwood Tannahill and the November December Munster known as Derrick Henry. Well here's the thing with tannehill now barring the complete face plan the question is just how many guaranteed years does he get from the titans because because he's GonNa be the quarterback next year. They're really the running an efficient effective offense. I think he's up around fifteen yards of completion over his last two games. The problem is with Tennessee. Hennessy is. He isn't throwing the ball a whole lot so we had eighteen. Pass attempts against Jacksonville last week. Now of course two rushing touchdowns in two passing touchdowns so he he wants somebody a lot of money in DFS. But it's it's one of those things where decided Lamar Jackson. You really don't think that that's tenable. Because he's a good Ron. Everybody's not an explosive one but then he had the nineteen pass attempts against Kansas City. A couple of weeks ago. This is how they WANNA play. So I think Tannahill the hill is a streamer streamer the quarterback the problem is i. Don't trust any of his wide receivers because AJ Brown had the big game and Jacksonville but two weeks exco. He had the terrible game just one catch against Kansas City. So I'm not really trusting any of that. I think Corey Davis is flat out droppable right now because I have a tough time saying to myself. When am I going to play Corey Davis in any of my line at this point and so I think he's droppable? Ryan Tannehill has accounted for for over nineteen fantasy points and multiple touchdowns in each of his five starts his nine point two yards per attempt is leading the NFL. He's playing really well. And I think the colts are a gettable matchup even if it's not a pristine one but the guy you always trust here is Derrick Henry. You had a third touchdown last week wiped out because of a screen pass. The the colts are really struggling to score points right now and we heard this week. That t y Hilton so far isn't sure he's going to be ready to go on Sunday. This projects to be a lower scoring game in Indianapolis and that means all systems go for Derrick Henry locked in rb one locked in court. DFS play tight end for the titans writings. Nobody worthwhile nobody useful Delaney Walker. Could be back. Johnny Smith didn't even have a target last week. He had a carry their they got one in target for Michael Pruitt. Firkh sir. Didn't have a target Dennis Kelly the backup. Tackle got a touchdown. The tight ends and Tennessee are useless. It's really Tannehill and Henry Henry at this point of the season the only two guys that I can consider with any sort of confidence.
The Jaguars face the Texans in an AFC South showdown
"Right Thursday night football put a pin in it the AFC south showdown between the Tennessee tied tunes one in one after that dispiriting home home loss to the colts now travel to the big chlorine tank Jacksonville to face the Jaguars and Greg. This is a a very interesting match between also the titans this we wanted to in your tain you find it interesting but I'm trying to sell to the greater raider public the titans which they could not have looked better in the second half against the browns on the road got everybody sucked in and then look very much like the old titans and we to which WHO's WHO's the real titans in two thousand nineteen and the jags anytime you this is a caged animal game West Cornered Animal Game Owen to everyone knows your season's season's over in the NFL when you go with the added element caged animal of your cornerback trying to get out of the cage before the game exactly exactly so there you go that way. Greg caged animal game against the Titans team that we really don't know who they are yet. We've seen a ceiling floor. Laura ready and a quarterback in Jacksonville that sort of resembles a you know. A cute furry caged animals to garden. Gardner Menchu looked fine in his first start but this is a perfect match up for Tennessee to get right not only did. They wipe the floor with Jacksonville. If I remember a few times a year ago they're a veteran and secondary who should be able to swarm and kind of swallow this Jaguars offense which was very condensed the week ago. This is just so this such delimited team. They're so thin you know how sometimes Dak Prescott. He's completed eight passes to different receivers in the first half. They've six Jaguars period have caught passes this year they. They don't have a backup running back. Their offensive line is very thin and they were struggling to pick up blitzes. It's just a lot to ask for mint you who I think's doing a good job and their defense offense to carry them. I think when you have the B. Line through both games was that despite some big plays on offense for the titans against the Browns Marcus Mariota. Uh is not a quarterback that propels any offense. He's any seems to hold you back in one in one thing that I find interesting about a team like the titans versus others is that you get Adam Humphreys and you mentioned on Sunday any finishes week to with negative two yards. I thought he was going to be the perfect thing for Marcus Mariota and AJ Brown big game week one really nothing in week two and it says you cannot count on the titans attack week to week outside of. I think you know Henry. Potentially early on the ground has been consistent since last November so one of the better backs in the league they're gonNA need him to be big in this game but I do trust every other element of the titans and in their defense and to me. I'd be surprised if they don't win this by ten points or more there the better all around team. I expected to win but you never know when a Jaguars defense it's perfectly capable of shutting down the Tennessee Titans who are not dynamic on I mean they shut down the Texans the Texans. I think they were touchdown. I believe it was on a very very short field otherwise they did a great job and that was without in Gakugei and boy. I don't know if they're back but they got pressure on Watson and that's two weeks in a row for Watson Awesome but Watson that didn't shut the offense down against New Orleans man she mania. There's the night all right.
"aj brown" Discussed on Thunder Radio
"Does he he's not able to jam? A new Gallup poll finds more than half of us are stressed a lot of the day. I gotta get outta here lose it nearly forty percent of Americans admit to worrying a lot and just over twenty percent say they feel a lot of anger countries with more stress than the US include Greece, the Philippines and Tanzania. Jennifer brown. CBS news people are being more into stay away from a big tree in McCall, Idaho. That's because the small plane is at the top of it. And they're trying to figure out how to get down. John. Gregory was trying to crash land is single engine piper. Cub and a field, but a wing strut got snared in a tree top and his plane was stuck sixty feet up in the tree firefighters had to climb up the tree to get him down. He was unhurt. Pam coulter. CBS news. He's the guy that we spent quite a bit of time with really productive in a really good Football Conference a player that got versatility. He played inside receivers played outside receiver, really good size. Really good testing numbers. And I would say that he played those testing numbers when you put the film on and a strong player with the ball in his hands. You know, really good making the the contested catches and battling against the to come down with it. John how much did you learn about AJ Brown in decay Metcalf wasn't on the field due to his injury. And they moved him around some. Yeah. I think that's a great point. You know, you you're able to see him he played mostly in the in the plot. Lot spot went decay was out there and in lodge Metcalf. Played out on, you know, more more on the perimeter. And you know, when when vk went down, they they they shifted AJ out and play him a little bit more outside. You could see him win those one on one match up which is going to be critical for outside receivers. You know, they're going to put those put those bigger corners and try to bang away. And I thought he you know, he he really made some some nice plays against against good football players. John, you have evolved. This group of receivers in your time as general manager. There's looking at what I think is the top five Corey Davis AJ Brown, Adam Humphreys, now tater tasha sharp. This is a place that wasn't as strong when you started as general manager, but you have transformed via like what you see on paper and film now. Well, I mean, it's paper. We'll see we'll see when we get when we get the ninety guys out there. And we we start competing. They all have a little different guilt that which is which is good. But I think all of those guys have the ability to do the three most important things for a receiver which get open catching block now. Talking to thug AJ tonight on the phone when we made the pick and coach available was talking to him and said, you're ready to get open a catch the two mottos that we live by around here for receiver. And then he handed the phone to me and blocked who we're going to try to run the football. And he got you coach. So I really liked the mix of all of those guys. You know, we've been some some youth into that physician group over the past couple of years, and you know, guys like Corey are starting to mature Taylor one taking steps Taj is taking steps so really liked the mix that the skill set mixture that all those guys bringing to the table. You know, what John you know, when I was coaching there at the cardinals. I had had the opportunity to draft anquan Boldin. AJ reminds me a lot of him in this way, he's faster than an coin. But he is he he can catch balls across the middle. He competes for those catches. And then once he gets it. He's really tough to bring down and that and that makes a world of difference. When you've got receivers that do that that that that emanates throughout your throughout your club. And I really liked this player watching him on tape. Congratulations for getting a mere appreciate coach if he turns out like getting Kwame boat, and we'll we'll be alright any qualms a heck of a football player. But you're right. You know, when you're when you're playing when you're playing out every you gotta have some confidence you got to have some place crank. You've got gotta have some grit to you. You know, those they're going to punch you in Jammie for that. All right. Got five yard, you know, to to really give it to you. And I think that that AJ shows the ability that he's in there and battle to get open. John Robinson is our guest titans radio as we're live from the general Jackson showboat just outside of Nissan stadium. Turn to Nate Davis the offensive lineman from Charlotte. John what was the particular skill or skills that you saw in this big man that made you decide that Nate Davis was the right offensive lineman to take eighty two. Yeah. You know, he he was a guy that that are scouts. It had lied. I had walked throughout the course.
"aj brown" Discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"Over. Hall. Yeah. I like that. I like that AJ Brown pick a lot. Looking at my rankings and just how they've changed even just in these two three months of the offseason. I've already ranked three different players as my top rookie available. And you know, maybe that's a case of me being a little wishy washy, but I think it really speaks to the class, especially the the top of the draft class and just how you know, kind of how jumbled up they are really. So AJ Brown is not one of those guys. But he's he's really close so definitely endorse that picket at one point. Oh to I'm going to take the guy you mentioned Akil hairy at the three spot. He is. He's a player that I would say at this point pre-draft is the favourite to be the one. Oh, one in most rookie drafts. I run some Drass dynasty league football. We we use that to collect and build ADP data soon too. Syndicale Harry has been the number two player in February number one player in March number one player in April. So he's he certainly certainly up there. And like I said, he's probably the favourite right now to be that one on one. He's he's also versatile receiver. He can go in or out. He's he's gonna offer something in the return game. I think when it's all said and done he'll be a late first rounder in the NFL draft. And and that will give them that draft capital that we're looking for that would certainly help he checks a lot of boxes, you know. He he tested as a great athlete. He's big. He had a lot of run after catch production. Just a lot of production overall. I mean, he was a dominant three year player at Arizona state. And yeah, I mean, I think he's a high floor pick. I mean, I think he's going to be very worse like a plus NFL starter. And I think he might end up kind of being more of a big slot receiver. But it'll be really interesting to see how his is career trajectory. He's a lot younger than Bennett came Butler. I believe as well. But yeah, I mean, real real solid prospect, Josh Norris, and I actually did a podcast on five or six Pacific receivers. You can check that out on rodeo world football for the next pick. I'm gonna go with Josh Jacobs. Decay Metcalf now starting to fall little bit. But for Josh Jacobs. I think it's a trust the Tate situation. I think he's a really good player. And you could see that when he is. When you watch him play. He did not have a lot of production. You know last year at had one hundred twenty carries, and he he is not tested. Great at his pro day this off season. But again, I'm trusting my is here, I'm trusting like Daniel, Jeremiah has him as the number eight overall player in the draft. I think he's the running back into straffed. Maybe the only running back who has a chance to be a first round actual NFL pick. And if we see a team invest top thirty two top forty draft capital in adjust Jacobs that's going to bode well for his NFL career. And he just his chances of getting a lot of opportunities and so much of this especially in fantasy is about to sheer opportunity. Jacobsen's is obviously an interesting case as he was a backup throughout his career. I've kinda compared him not not necessarily as play style. But just his his dynasty value and fantasy football value to what we saw last year from Sony Michelle who who was essentially kind of the one b for Georgia throughout his college career. He had a great light run there at the end of. Last season. And then he ends up as a as a first round pick to the patriots. I think we could see the same thing with Jacobs. Like you said. Would be one point oh five I'm going to take decay Metcalf. And and this is another just just really interesting case. Of course, we we've all seen the pictures of him in the weight room and just blown away by that he came out and and dominated the combine, especially when it comes to that forty time think he ran a four three three we were all wild by that, especially for a guy his size six three to twenty eight. And then the weird thing that happened with him though, from a fantasy perspective is in these mock drafts his value actually dropped in February. He was the number one player of the board the number one rookie we all wanted. And since that combine he's falling. So now, he's he's three overall now in our ADP, and maybe that's related to those those agility drills. I'm not really sure what it is. Honestly, but fantasy owners are at least a little scared of Metcalf at the top of the draft. I think here at the. Five spot. That's where you're willing to take a chance on his upside. No question. I think he's a no brainer at number five. And even as someone who has a little bit of skepticism about him myself. I mean, I think that he is I think that he is more of like a complimentary number two receiver as opposed to, you know, a big volume number one receiver, and you know, what we want and fantasy is the big volume number one receiver. And I think I don't think it's out of the question that he could become that. But I think did just from watching him play at ole miss seeing how he was deployed along with the other receivers there. They had another dude who's going to get drafted late DeMarcus lodge. They have a. Tight end that people are talking about maybe being a second picky at no Ciro touchdowns in his college career Dawson Knox. And I think he had like fifty three catches or something. Maybe not even like forty three catches something like that. But they've got a bunch of dudes that are going to get drafted. And you can see how the how they were all deployed. And I think that you know for Dickey Metcalf. He he stuck to one side. You did not see him moving into the slot as much you did not see him running a wide variety of route. So. You know, I just I don't know if that's in his toolbox to become a guy that is the focal point of a passing attack. Whereas I think AJ Brown showed in that same offense that he was capable of that number six miles Sanders now Greg Cosell, I know has him as he's number two running back in the draft. Greg Gabriel has mile Sanders as is number one running back in the draft. I watched them before the draft. I thought he reminded me of devante Freeman before the draft you go I'm sorry for the combine. And then so he goes to the combine hit a really good. Combine now Ryan I know that you have some interesting thoughts on mile Sanders. Yeah. This this is a guy who is just blowing up the past three months when when we see nothing when it comes to football other than the combine. And he did have as you mentioned. He had a good combine. But I don't think that's all it is his dynasty ADP has rookie ADP went from nineteen overall to six overall. So this is a guy who's gained a full round of value. And when you're talking about a rookie draft. I mean, that's a huge jump in these in these off season months, and I think what it is a it's probably a little bit of echo chamber fantasy players reading some of the analysis that you're talking about where where people are ranking him as the Rb one the Rb tune in the class that I also think part of it is. General fantasy players, you know, guys like yourself who maybe don't focus so much on the on the college football season. This is not a guy who was at the front of our minds because he played behind saquon Barkley for two years. He finally gets his chance when when Barkley goes to the NFL this year and him dominant college season. So I think essentially this is a guy that most people were just not aware of he was. He was a top three recruit in his in his class. I mean, he he this guy has an really so. And I'm I'm one who was also kind of late to the party on him. I saw him nineteenth overall. As I mentioned in our February ADP actually thought that was too high. I kind of questioned some people even take him that. Hi, evan. I told you this the other day, it's kind of funny to look back on it. Now you've and even a couple of months ago. Elisa Holyfield was actually being drafted ahead of him in these dress.

Because you talking about AJ Brown Paris Campbell, you can incur- Harry, and some of the other guys that are right in that mix that could be in the conversation. I finally Ridley Riley really hooking Butler, their number guys that are right at that line where they can be I rounded, but you easily see him being guys at a picked in the first forty five I fifty picks. And so if I'm a team, and I have all these guys greater together. I'm looking at some of the other positions someone to shallower positions. Get some of those guys and then come back and maybe get my receiver in the second round. I just gave me an idea to on path to the draft book when we start talking about thin positions. I think we do it. And we just think shallow together. I'll play lady Gaga. But look that was that was to me was the pleasant surprise was the receiver group, and what we saw from them that was encouraging their the tackle position, man. One of the first takeaways from that is this is this off my chest. A little mini. It's two thousand nineteen the fact that we don't just do a body scan to get the precise measurements of arm. Length is crazy to me. We'll give guys all them are is all that stuff. The the technology. I mean look at the Madden game. They put the little they've put they get the whole body frame on there with the way they're able to test these guys why are we buying a tape measure at WalMart for four dollars and having arbitrary way of of measuring arm like it's not the scouts fault. It's impossible to be consistent in that area. In to see the arm length at the senior bowl for these guys. And the difference that you get with some of them at the combine mix no sense to me. Why are we still doing this? Why do we not just have a full scan where we can get a print out and see exactly what the body composition is? All right, buck. You don't even need to respond to that. It just something. I had to get off my chest. To something I needed to do there. It's two thousand nineteen. That's all I'm saying. Yeah, we should be up to date with technology to be able to get accurate measurements. When it comes to some of these things hand on length all of the even height. All right. Let's let's real quick man that was fun fun conversation. But I do want to go and revisit some of the conversations you had with some of the top players in this year's draft class. Here's here's your visit withdrew lock in Daniel Jones to potential first round quarterbacks here with me and one of our favorites on the move six pack has drew lock quarterback from zuri jurists all done. How's the common for his? It is all done. I enjoy the process, man. I I think one of the parts that, you know, there's a bunch of film on us running on us going and little, you know, people actually think about talk about us, our meetings, our meetings of these teams, and I think that's one of the biggest things that you know, we did this week..
NFL Trade Rumors and Buzz
"And they're like what is the buzz about here? And I was like we'll Cuyler Murray's Wayne, but he's not even gonna test. Yeah, there there isn't mother isn't a there isn't one specific thing that people are really buzzing about I think there's a several position groups that are really interesting. I think the offensive linemen and the receivers have some really interesting players receivers, particularly there's like the whole spectrum of type of players. I mean, you've got decay Metcalf. You've got I came and then he got Markey's Brown, and like smaller shifty guys you've got AJ Brown who looks like a running back playing receiver. There's just all kinds of guys in. So there there's a lot of I think if you're if you're gonna say there's buzzer excitement about anything. It's it's watching receivers as watching the offensive lineman, obviously defensive lineman is going to be huge this week. Oh. Ed oliver. I think that was actually kind of an interesting thing this morning, he weighed in I think it to eighty seven. So that was a good way for him. That's plenty. Yeah. That's like more than what Aaron Donald waiting now. Obviously that's a comparison. That happens a lot. I don't think he's earned Donald. But he's a very good player very explosive and being at two eighty seven is a very good number for him. We'll see how he tests. I think that he over the next few days he could generate a lot of buzz of among the receivers. Is there anybody that you particularly like, it's just one of your guys? I think you came about a starting to he started to I I mean, I'm standing out to you a little bit. As things you've said to me in tweeted, I'm reticent to say, he's my guy because I there are worries with him in terms of drops and his like, he's just massively few look at his web chart on. Oh credible through the measurements. It's just he's like ninety eight th percentile in every day. Big, man. I think actually I heard that he set the record for wingspan at receiver position at the combine almost eighty four inch got. Yeah. So he's got an insane catch radius. I'm a little worried about like. You know, his ability to separate his his consistency as a catcher, but he has immense upside I'll put it that way like his ability to get behind. The defense is really good. He's really long strider really fast. So I wouldn't necessarily say he's like, you know, my pound the table guy. But I do like him a lot. I'm really interested to see how akilah Harry runs think. He's just kind of one of those guys that's really polarizing right now because we're from Arizona state. He he's a guy that is like really big physical super productive. But he's also sort like, there's he's kind of in the alshon Jeffery shor mold where you're like Kenny separate or is he gonna have to only sorta use his body in wind contested catches and things like that. I think he's going to be really interesting. The Stanford guy JJ JR Sega white said Whitehead is really interesting player. He's like form basketball player box out king. Like if you watch him they just throw it up into the end zone.
"aj brown" Discussed on First Draft
"It only one sixty five seventy whether he's going to end up weighing AJ Brown. Same thing that slot guy. Is he more of that guy? Hey, Jarvis Landry that of a player. So and you'll get Julian Edelman meant to the Super Bowl winning patriots without him. They don't win a Super Bowl or even get to it came medcalf is a big talent as he get enough separation to me, I look at him and the keel, Harry you look at who team Butler at Iowa State. Does he run well enough? I think met casts workout he's a third year sophomore. He's rolling the dice coming out Todd's guy. I think he probably could be if he has a great workout. You're facing that again one potential. I I didn't see Metcalf to me ever show that wild type separation that wild type quickness, and and just just go out and just just exploit a corner in the college the college game and just destroy somebody. I didn't sell them again. Yeah. I know I've I've I think decay Metcalf will be a guy who over the next three months. Two months. Three months ends up probably going where two project to twenty twenty two head him going twenty two to the right? I Ronnie siklie three or four weeks. I'd AJ Brown going that same spot the teammate of decay Metcalf. We're JJ durability your point four. So I mean, we're splitting hairs here. I had a going there decay. Medcalf was a guy was certainly was considered you decided to go with it. Now, I'm going to wait a little bit on decay. Medcalf? I think he's another guy. There's a say boomer bus. There's going to be mixed opinion as to how high decay Metcalf should go. Todd. We talked a little bit about him last week when we were going through some of the best weapons in the draft. You put Alabama running back Josh Jacobs in this draft number twenty seven to the raiders folks don't realize, of course, the raiders are gonna take a running back in round one. Well team took a running back late round one last year named Sony. Michelle he was the guy who scored a touchdown in the Super Bowl. Sometimes if the great slot. The only one yes. But sometimes the great matches a slot. If you think the guy can play right away late first round rounds, not a bad place to get that guy. We've seen it a number of times in recent years. Yes, I obviously can see the fit here with the raiders at twenty seven. But more broadly. Do you think Josh Jacobs is just firmly in the conversation is a guy that can go somewhere? I don't know say twenty two on. I do I think if he's not a first round pick. He'll be a top forty pick. And I think it's the versatility the explosiveness. And it doesn't hurt that. He you know, he's got. A lot of tread left on those tires because he he really was never the guy. He became the guy very late this season. If you go back and look at the carries and touches, but Damian Harris really was was carrying the majority of the load for the last year and a half. And and I think Jacobs benefits from that. But also being able to put enough good tape out there at the end of the year against some top competition. To me. I just I think his ability to catch the ball to move around to protect and then the explosiveness to create yards on his own kind of what separates him from some of these other guys like Bryce love who's had trouble staying healthy. You know, Damon Harris, obviously, his teammate Devon single, Terry. Daryl Henderson, David Montgomery from Iowa State. They're all talented backs..
"aj brown" Discussed on Bolts from the Blue
"I would spend a first round pick on talented is is I think he's going to have some issues with maturity at the next level. So I seventy seven on him. Which is an early third round pick. And a lot of this is based on some of the information I have on him from from the program, but I'm just not as much of a fan as you probably thought I would be actually I'm right there with you. And a lot of people thought Harry a lot of people think Harry's a top five wide receiver in this class. The first round pick. If not I early day to pick. And he's got some good things work at forum. Of course, he's a true deep threat. He's got unbelievable timing on the jump ball that fade route in the red zone was his bread and butter, man. He was the extra Seaver who's pretty physical track the ball pretty well. He's more of a long strider with strong hands with a wide catch radius, and he might be along shredder, but he's not fast enough to get behind many NFL quarters at the next level. Harry isn't very good getting off the line scrimmage. So it takes him a little bit to get going and hands are pretty inconsistent. Body catches a lot which I do not like at all. He's. Big body. Deep threat seems to separately fast in games, though. I think the combines can be big for Harry, and I don't think it's going to be very kind to him either. There are a few issues that will need to clean up. His hands is release some his route running, but especially finishing out routes, which I I hated it's almost like you gave up at the some routes, and maybe that's part of that head fake thing. You're talking about. But I got a seventy on him. So we are in the ballpark. We're a high third round grade on Nikial hairy, which most people don't have. Yeah. I mean, I think you look at his frame, and you just assume he's going to be a first round pick. And he put up some numbers in college. But he seemed to disappear in big games. It was frustrating because they just part of it wasn't his fault part of it was that they didn't know how to use them. And it was basically just okay, run deep, and we'll throw it to you. And if he didn't get the ball early in games, he just checked out. So not somebody. I would want to investor first round pick and for sure. Yeah. Me neither. All right. Next up. Here's AJ Brown at ole miss. AJ Brown takes backseat lining up across from decay Metcalf. But it was the rebels leading ride receiver last season. He's got strong hands not afraid to take a hit in the middle of the field. He's got the body type of an outside receiver. But he plays inside in the slot. He's a pretty good route runner, though, the changes direction isn't nearly as crisp as you would like to see it ran the slot a lot. So like you talked about with Harry, he didn't get pressed a lot either. He doesn't really have the speed to play outside, but has the body to win inside with the footwork help them get open as well. There's a team that's going to Bank on the upside here. But at the position and only one year of starting experience, I got my questions especially at the beginning and ends of his routes for slot guy like to see a little bit more from Brown and few years. Maybe he could be something. But right now there is some like about him, but not a ton of the plan should be to get him to clean up his release refined some of the shortcomings run him in the slot. And I hope team doesn't try to. Run out on the outside. Just because you know, he's got the size to be outside receiver. I'd rather somebody keep him as a big inside threat because outside would just be a bad move. I've got a low third round grade on AJ Brown. I gave him a seventy three I like Brown. I thought he was a pretty good route runner uses his long strides eat up ground in the middle of the field. Browns pretty much always open from the slot. In the middle of the field uses lengthened frame news advantage catches pretty much everything. And I thought he showed pretty good speed. He does not make many plays outside. Most of his plays are made from the slot..
