"To talk about today but first breaking news out of miami gardens. The miami dolphins will be without wide receiver willful or for sunday's matchup versus the buffalo bills. The team is calling it. A personal issue and brian flora's even when as far to say there was a possibility for may not suit up the rest of the season. Obviously a lot of unknowns. But what were your thoughts. Jake when you first heard this friday afternoon. Josh first and foremost i mean the seed blake first weekend forever where the dolphins were gonna have a completely clean injury report willful or was the only one who wasn't listed as a full participant in practice on both thursday and friday. But just i do have to say. I think we're kind of over-reacting about this. A little bit will fuller was in the building wednesday. I believe he was actually in the building thursday as well. I'm concerned for some things are bigger than football. I don't necessarily know. I mean ryan floors declined to say preston. Williams who is fully active is going to be playing on sunday. So i think that's more displays being bryant floors as much as odd. This is something that's gonna completely ruin season. I hope that isn't the case. I hope everything is all right for him and you know. We can't really speculate on too much by terms of what's happening on the field. It's gotta be a little disappointing to not see him out there. Yeah and especially because we sat here and we you know we were pretty stoked needed. A podcast on wednesday talked about the impact he could have. You're right where i think. A lot of us are kind of you know thinking the worst year i was actually listening to the press conference. So i mean a little bit of brian. Floors tone is kind of why. I think it might be a little bit more serious but like you said this is bigger than football. So thoughts and prayers with will fuller and you know whether he's back next week or the week after he doesn't play at all. I mean we should all support him and a with anything with the miami dolphins football in general. It's the next man up mentality you know they said like you mentioned preston. Williams was a full go. Could we see some more reps out of him. Will you great you know. We joked about the depth chart not meeting anything. It was the one at the top of that. Depth chart before moore was activated. So i don't know who the spells is going to get more. You know reps. I think we're going to see a big jalen waddell but it hurts when we sat here and said what could impact he can bring and what he can do that offense because if there's any team they need a fuller against it would be the buffalo bills after that dismal performance last season. Just i think. I want to start calling you the parent the receiving core because you always see the best in this group you know you always see the upside on there with the team. Everything with this team. I probably saw good in charles harrison. That spin movie had to get out of the house. Go get a job. I've sick of you pick them up as he's walking down the street with his bags they just kidding man. Come back. I that will be the data. I'm going to share my face and just had the mustache for the rest of the season. It'd be the data this receiving core. It just fits what you do because you always seem to see that upside at the bottom of the roster guys at it's understandable because whether it's the third of the sixth receiver they're gonna see the field right. They're going to have opportunities whether it's akeem grant taking advantage of those are dropping the couple deep ause he gets. That's a different story but just let let's talk about williams here for quick because each of start before he got hurt last season. He received five targets in each to kind of give that a little bit of context that put him with miles gasket in jalen waddell last week. In terms of the miami dolphin receivers were targeted. The most only devante parker had more targets than those two. So i could see preston really diving back in and becoming part of this offense because he is someone who's gonna wind up in the slot. I think a lot of time but he does not fit that You know usual side. I like to say wiggle that quickness you see but josh what makes preston millions such a good start receiver and receiver in general. Because i go back to it. This is someone. You've always loved the unicorn glitch. Whatever you wanna call him. I mean you've always been a heightening for yet that's just Maybe that's just some some who i am. But i'm you'd go back to that cardinals game like you said jake four receptions sixty yards he had that touchdown i mean. He looked like a difference maker. He looked like one of those guys. It to you know how to report within realize that dude's man-to-man coverage there's no safety over top. I'm gonna take a chance because press says more of that big bodied receiver so he brings a different dynamic. That slop position. I don't know again who's going to get the most reps here. I mean just because he practiced full doesn't mean you know he's going to be a full. Go with with anything this weekend. But i mean if you get presley's back in that line of bringing in a guy that you don't wanna as more of like a devante parker but he fits more of that mold in some of these other guys. You bring another one of those in here. Y'all mike now. You've got six five pressing williams and then all that speed around him. I mean again. I don't know how you attack this buffalo bills team but they gotta play much. Better offense Last year. I think you know have impressed williams back in. The lineup could definitely helped josh something. I thought that was interesting from week. One is it was the miami dolphins spinal drive in. It was too at the five yard. Line that first island completion to Devante parker that really hope. The dolphins sample out o'clock there. Did you see the quotes. It too was saying about that. I mean i was gonna say killed a lot of narratives. Didn't i know a lot of people as a one read quarterback neil. He doesn't have the manpower. The ability to check plays at the line. And i don't have the full quote here but he basically said you know it was i in fourteen. The ball was maybe at the two yard line and a he checked out of a run in the huddle and found devante parker on that slant and i think he gave him what thirteen yards at that point..

"It's all very alabama it's all it's all easy gains to rights right if they're gonna give us gas no flat we're gonna take if you could make one guy mess. I down new downs. We don't need to. It'd be a hero when you to facilitate an offense that makes sense to him and that's the they've talked a lot. Eric students george ghazi costs about how this playbook is going to be deep. And it's going to be complex and that's good plays and we have smart quarterback. We're comfortable in that. But you do have to have your go. Get a buckets and this offense of look you know. They're not trying to show. Everything was very much to go get a bucket very much. The easy stop in and to is going to be able to do that all the way down the field. Especially if guys like waddell and gaskin or able to stay healthy because those guys playmakers the ballmer hands totally grows gonna mention the quick game to both gaskin and wanna I thought was interesting. The motion also impressed me. Ben yeah i was talking to. I did piece on the regular dot com on monday about kind of the last decade of football. And what it's meant in the two thousand eleven scoring boom and harvard chain. I was talking to adam. Zimmer who's the defensive coordinator the vikings and we were just talking about really you. Can't you cannot overemphasize how much motion has changed everything. And how the downhill runs and now become lateral runs and the defense is is never been more confusing and i use this as a way now. Obviously this is not anything that people have known for a couple of years now but if you're not using motion as much as possible. You're leaving Production on the table. And so i was. I was definitely impressed with that Ben if going back to the draft now and seeing this is. This is such a monday morning. Sort of question Waddle is the guy for two right. Yeah i think would win. They were moving around right and they went from free to twelve to six and there was that a media conversation of okay. Who do they feel like is is attention going to be there at six. But there's no chance as well and they had to make this move right out ahead to immediately get back up into the top seven eight. You're looking at two pleasure. Kyle pets and me jalen waddell because a player jomar chase Is going to be that outside. Vertical contested cats jump ball guy having parker and has never really going to be to his game. That's ryan fitzpatrick games. Not really to his game. and then devante smith makes sense right in terms of that that route running and that separation ability. But you're really looking for jack creation after the cat. Something we're devante is good especially for his frame but were waddell has clearly been better across. The course of his career hits also would have made sense. They played too tight. Enzo lot a durham. Smyth is going to be the employer. Offense which is like you know charlotte. Durham smyth But they play multiple times a lot. They wanna be a aggressive downhill running team. That's clearly important to brian florez. I don't think they're going to be that this year but it's really important to him and they wanna have those multiple tight end sets and so you see how pits would've made sense with a times. They moved their tight ends across formation and the times that they get them releasing into concert we might kosinski be decently featured in the offense and one of the preseason that would have been pets so i think pits waddell. Were those two guys that make sense offense that makes sense for two and i do think that as it looks now which obviously they did. Draft waddell basil. Now waddell is important. Waddell is like you said the guy they they used akeem grant as the water. Replacement once Water coming off the field and like it's kinda good is fun player. He's very natural the ball hands. But we've already seen takim grant in miami already know kind of with the ceiling on that as waddell gives you a lot. It's it's the simplicity of saying. If i throw the bubble this guy. I'm getting dissect them for and that's just such a win for my offense and keeps things so easy and it prevents from hero. Plays not only because he doesn't have the greatest deep ball or whatever but also that offensive line's still for all the good stuff that we saw against atlanta's overseen from when they have to take deep drops for two when they tried to run some of those alabama play action shots. It's not a good offense a by late but they had one where waddell got opened on a d. crosser and the often y couldn't hold out for more thumb it was it was They ran in twenty jones. Yeah and and waddle scored multiple touchdowns on that concept and is just the back to be protection. You didn't get a good luck. And then jessie davis right. Tackle mrs bloch. He's got no chance on. So yeah that that pass protection for that deeper. Stop needs to catch up. So you really want to stay ahead of the sticks and wattle is a great players out of the stakes Stephen let's go big picture here. I know this is insane. I know it's insane with the content game for two weeks in the preseason. We've seen it Does what we've seen over the past three weeks with the dolphins give you any any different visions of of the afc east hierarchy. Yeah i think it does because one we don't know i don't know what new england's going to look like like they added all these new pieces. I don't remember what that offense is gonna look like we can. We can guests and then buffalo seems to be due for a little regression. I don't think the offense is going to be fire of fire-breathing. I'm not going to bring up one. Eighty four minutes and fifty seconds. Into your ringer career you brought to pure.

"Your hundred percent rate josh. And as we expand this conversation onto the hoffitz is a whole specifically josh. I mean all of miami's quarterbacks were pretty impressive accurate. The last time we were able to say something like that. But i think it's important to keep in mind that the difference between a dink dunk offense and a quarterback who's afraid to push it down the field Tannehill had some issues with that if you really want to get into the nitty gritty of being unable to push downfield. Channy is the example hours. Go to where he's always. Check it down. He's too scared to make that mistake with the dolphins you though. They're given their guys the ball on an opportunity to make a plan. I mean how often was it. Jalen oiseaux urge akeem grant ahead to be one guy at a. They could cut a dance around for miles gasket on the outside there it was a third seven or so i'll where he caught a ball. He should've actually been tackled. Right around glen scrimmage made guy miss he got the first down so i think it's important to keep in mind. The differences of scheming guys open giving guys an opportunity to get about space. Make budding a play with the ball compared to just hayward delegate to the running back hand w down to my outlook guy because i just don't wanna push the ball. I'm afraid of mcnabb mistake. That could change the. Yeah and i mean i think you could even throw to a ton of a low of last season two thousand twenty as guy. That was a little bit scared to put down field. So i think you're right. It's kind of what you expect when you draft it too. I mean if you brought him in here and they can use go out there and use that to throw the ball around the herbert. You were just mistaken. I mean this is the offense that suits him and he's going out there and he looked like a surgeon. Great side in itself offense scenes signed for him which is a big thing so one hundred percent because it was you know that was not the case last year. But you mentioned jake. He could not have done this without having time in the pocket and this offensive line. Look night and day to be completely honest again. I think a lot of it had to do with going at some of atlanta's second guys. But i mean they were. They were tested. This tested last week to go in there. Do the work put it in and then go out there and and execute on saturday. That's exactly what this offensive line did. Also jackson looked a little bit improved. I know is pro. Football focus create might not might not represent that too. Well but what did you see the most of this offense. Jake you know because i mean they were truly opening up big holes from aisles. Gaskin salva knock mad. I mean it was. It truly was a full effort from this offense and like you said they opened up. That can't pass that we needed to see. I think it starts were not necessarily playing well with playing clean josh. I mean the dolphins with the situation burn with the offensive line. Yes we can. Also jackson started to play better despite his forty seven. Thirty six whenever whatever grade you wanna say for his black Whatever it is. It's not gonna stop well so just pick a low number pick linebacker number and we'll just say that's austin jackson's pass program of what i think the dolphins are gonna have to do to play successful and it goes back to that teacher mentality of straight up plain clean games. There was not a lot of Josh hit the down the head with the quote about getting the line early getting the offensive line in a situation where they identified the blitzes identify with other defense. Trying to do and another thing. Josh where i think that maybe if you wanted to make an argument in smear if larry thompson was going to be miami's left tackle for the next ten years you could say yes. He's great pass blocking yes. He's great roadblocking but penalties josh. Those penalties kind of can sometimes bessarabia. Everything he's trying to do in terms of. Hey you have group walks role that's fine but just give up a ten yard penalty which is just as bad as the sack sub scenarios just to penalties last night. Josh i think this cube going to have to play a very clean and i think the way offensive. Line this bill. I think they're going to be able to do that. And once you know you're playing clean. I mean once you're playing well that starts be kinda gravy when you think about it. I mean the biggest play to me that stood out was down at the in the red zone. I think someone What involves a third and one ingestion. We're told me not to bring it up. And it was leeann mike and bergen robert hunt basically driving and do downfield for seven yards. I saw long sealed off the edge so it was a total group effort. I want to read off some of the pro football grades. You have here again. Take with a grain of salt as always says michael played forty seven snaps. Which jake i mean. michael leader. He looked like he belonged. I mean let's many needs a beer. That's all he needs. He's the best center in the league. That's a beer in the ass. Towel also jackson forty-seven snaps his. Bff gray was thirty. Nine point six again. That was slightly better than last week. Greg little only played twelve snaps in the second half. Liam aiken forty six snaps. Pf pass blocking grade of seventy eight. Again i talked about him in the run game but i mean why the dolphins traded up in and gave up draft capital up there and get lamb like burgum. You kinda see some of that in this game all bite again. Preseason solomon kinley our boy the big fish eighty one point. Three pass blocking grade On forty seven snaps and robert hunt forty seven snaps. Didn't allow single pressure. So again i. I know a lot of this had to do with them. Getting up the line getting up there and snapping the ball not allowing the defense to get some of it had to do with going against that second-string but this is what you want to see. You want the offensive rise to the occasion. And that's what they did and it trickled over into.

"Baker got better and kevin stefanski showed more trust in him after near after those wind affected games around midseason their pass a tab volume really spiked and baker played really. Well i mean that was the best. We've seen baker play since his rookie year. Maybe in his entire career that he added eleven touchdowns one interception with an additional rushing touchdown over their final six games if they can carry that over. I don't think kevin stefanski is necessarily like a run. I coach. i think he's gonna. He's a smart coach and he's going to do and i think he actually believes more in using the past to set up the run So i think this is a good year to draft odell. this is the cheapest. He's been since his rookie year. And so that's why. I'm comfortable being ahead of. Adp on him. This team's score a lot of touchdowns man i mean. Their offensive line is so loaded and yeah there seems to be really really good. Are the cleveland browns for sure you mentioned. Dj charge already. You haven't wide receiver twenty four on underdog. Dj charges wide receiver. thirty four. and. I can explain to you the bear case. I think people are out on. Hr lower than you on da hr. It's just. They're not sure that digital command more targets than laviska in marvin jones. Like i don't think would surprise. People have any of those three led the team in targets. I agree with you. That shark is the best natural talent. But there's so many laviska stands out there. Marvin jones is always in the mix. So yeah i think you're just more confident than the rest of the field. That charge is going to lead. The team in targets are fine. What i'm saying there. Yeah yeah yeah yeah Another another case against them is that urban. Meyer had a history of using wide receivers in specific roles at ohio. State like the nets. Why michael thomas was under drafted in real life. Terry mclaren was way under drafted is because they were kinda difficult to evaluate because they really only had specific roles. In if you go back and watch parris campbell at ohio state you watch his highlights is like everything's a drag route. You go back and watch Everything's like downfield target. michael thomas. He he played a specific kind of one trick role and those guys wound up being really under drafted by the actual nfl. And so if he does. I think the dj sharp would be the the perimeter deep threat role player. Marvin jones would be like the the guy in the in the middle. And then chenault i think would be the run after catch dot so that. That's that's another knock against. Dj shark in I don't know i wouldn't say that. I'm souring on him. But i mean i i get i get both perspectives on 'em so i don't know it's i think i think the ranking here in the evaluation is actually a work in progress right now. Okay two more outliers. I want to mention here. We already talked about the andre swift on the last episode. Go ahead and scroll back to previous episode for that. John swift silva has rb twenty underdog and f. fcc. Both he's the rb sixteen and devante parker. You have devante. Parker wide receiver forty is. Adp is somewhere around wide receiver fifty five un divided partners are grown. Asked me and i know that they added jim waddell. I know they added will fuller. I just think he's back. I know we have questions about to a man. I would bet on talent on monday. Parker this late for sure. Seems like a no brainer to me. I know you're shocked at demonte. Part was wider fifty five. Adp right now. Yeah i mean if you just look overall ranks I have five rounds ahead of where he's going drafts. So i mean it's not even that i think he's going to blow it up but i think he's in a pretty good position here you know. The team has invested in long-term. Expect a nice sizable second year. Leap from two of he's really unchallenged. For playing time. I mean think. He's pretty clearly at the top of the receiver core. I mean you can make an argument that will fuller in jalen waddell. Are you know maybe better talents. I don't know department. Parker free damn good talent and willful and i think because they have the depth that receiver. I think that he's going to be the guy devante. Parker is gonna be the guy who was unaffected by that. It would make a lot more sense for them to eat. And jalen waddell as a rookie and we'll fuller. Who has the injury track record with guys like win. Bowden and the akeem grant or ilson preston williams you. I think those guys are going to experience. The the rotational effect and devante parker is going to be the the time player and i mean i was listening to leoni and ben grouches pockets which are really good. I mean they're freaking long nosed talk forever and if we are getting to leoni though because it looks like he went outside. Did you notice. Yeah he looks little little a little bit more color his skin. Yeah so But i think devante parker is the number one. And i don't know why he's going in the twelfth round you should be going in the seventh or eighth round. Yeah no we actually have. We've gotten so big time. We have a podcast network now and inside. The podcast network is established the edge. highly highly. Highly recommend you check out the pods. He's doing with bankrupt right now. Going player by player and team by team through the entire nfl. By the way. I did take god this morning. I took unders on both jail. Waddell and will fuller season-long receiving yardage props so agree with you on the rotation and easing in and all that a couple of good news stories. I wanna hit before we get to listener. Questions might on damien here is. This is no surprise. But you know he comes out and says that david harris the surefire are be one you know and it kind of makes me think and i think a lot of people thought this already sony. Michelle is really likely at least has a chance to be. Cut leaving there with vermont. Stevenson james wyatt decide brandon bolden on the roster. You have dares ninety eighth overall rb thirty seven. I mean i like him. He's not gonna catch a ton of passes but it's a really strong offensive line. And if mack jones gets in there it gives damian harris more upside two touchdowns. Cam newton won't be in there Stealing golan wraps i think. Still prefers trae sermon over damien harrison that range. But i do prefer. Damian harris guys like twenty pollard and ronald jones. And zack moss. So you know i. I felt the story from mike reese. Today was nothing new. But i thought it was confirmation for people in that might send. Adp up a little bit. Where you add on damien hairs. She's going to be really touchdown. In yardage reliant player.

"Down and going here asking running backs life and motions back. End zone touchdown. That was quite connection there. And this one with two and mike sick and i think there is a little bit of an advantage. We've seen this in some previous years. Were young quarterback this chance to get out there and play for a little bit. He's seen some things now. You take a step back in and you're out for a little bit to be able to see the game okay. Now that i've been on the field let me look at it through. That set of is when. I'm watching on the sideline and then studying the tape and then get reinserted back into the lineup and i thought a nice course correction i know. Look this is the bengals coming off of a performance against to ahead struggled. I know the level of of opponent. Here but i thought what you saw was a very decisive to after all those sacks he took in that denver game he got the ball out quicker than anybody else in the nfl this week. Two point three eight are actually sorry. Second fast i think rivers got it out just a hair quicker but touch to throw. He was getting the ball out of his hands. That's the way he plays always said he's like a poker dealer right. A car dealer spread that ball around. Get get your foot and get the ball out. And i thought that's the way that to a played in this game very decisive. Very accurate underneath. Were terrible on third down one of ten on third down but still found a way to get through on this game. Felt good watching to coming off some adversity that he had previously buck yeah. Dj in this game did not start out well for to talk about lower and the miami dolphins and i thought it was really important that he not only hung in there but he came back and responded in a nice way. This is a young quarterback who was still trying to figure it out. He doesn't have a bunch of starts under his belt. And so you talk about wanting to see. How does he adapt and adjust to the way defenses play against him and i thought he did it really really well also chan. Gailey did a great job of doing what you pointed out. Get the ball out of his hands. Quick rhythm passes let them deal. I second revolve us out. We saw this office develop a bit of a rhythm and so i'm excited about the dolphins going forward because they are squarely in the mix to win the division either way. Did you guys see the ruckus that unfolded in this game on appearance crazy. Special teams plays mike. Thomas one of the gunners for the bengals ins up. I mean just to absolutely slobber knocker type hit hits keen grant both of them in a drawing flags one of them the last one for kick catch interference not even giving him any shot like two yards before the ball arrived he level akeem grant. And let me tell you. This that brian florez was having none of many. He marched right onto the field. And if you go one through thirty two and head coach intimidation rankings. Brian flora's is up there at the top. I do not want to be in that to its crosshairs as he's coming across the field with a bone to pick and i think the dolphins kind of respond to them. I think i think it's kind of the defense. Plays in his image here low bit and they're fun to watch keeps going here. Buck we got the saints are peaking at the right time.

"He came on TV on TV. I think it was in the afternoon talking film breakdown about why the Niners Mr. He most so much on offense, and it's that he Has speed and we already sought this year, right? He broke Brita speed record from didn't breed around like 22 miles an hour last year that I've been most one that's insane. That's too fast for a school zone that you can't run in that that's if there's kids crossing the street. You're gonna hurt somebody that's so messy. That's in standard. So so it's so funny. That is, Oh, are what was cool about that is Dante Whitner is talking about that's what the Niners Mrs. They have the This run scheme. It's opening up homes for guys, and that's why I like out of the passing game Jet. McKinnon was so big the first couple weeks and he had a couple of big holes, but he does not have the speed. The burst forces the speed that forces the linebackers in the DVDs to make a decision on committing to stopping the run, because if they guess wrong or the commit late, then there goes where he most of and that's where the Niners are missing. I think to your point that they could benefit. I'm talking about the Dolphins in using that type of speed from that Brita make these Young guys make make friend Warren commit early. We're talking from a fantasy standpoint here, of course, because, like I don't want to see the Niners lose. But if I start Matt Brita, I'm looking for a couple. You know, I'm going to need a few. This is due. This is the This is the inner struggle. You go through as a fantasy order right? When? Not like, We can't have a nine or lost this week? No, no. And I mean, you gotta You gotta get out of this game with a W. Right. And last week I pick Ryan picks. Ryan Fitzpatrick is my quarterback, Teo, you know, highlight 25 49 315 yards but two picks and no touchdowns. Maybe that's another kind of game. The Fitzpatrick gives you where he has a ton of attempts, but no touchdowns And maybe Brita Vultures. The touchdowns Now this is what happened. It kicked five field goals last week. So there's a thing you start to think about the Dolphin's offense it again. There's not a lot of weapons here and honors defense has been the Niners defense. Kids, like all things considered there, not scoring touchdowns or anything. I know that, but they'll turn the ball over. They'll get you a couple of sets. When they did last week was the on ly they did outside of the I mean, they get a pick six Do the Eagles often McMullen's, but Outside of that the defense held them to under 200 yards passing by Carson Alliance under 100 yards rushing by the Eagles offense, and they only held them to 18 points outside. I mean, they gave up 25 because of the pick six. But the Niners defense has been pretty good. So I'm not looking for a ton from any Miami dolphin this week. My point is, I think that they need to get creative with their offense. I think they're gonna mix in, Matt, breathe a little bit more kiss. We even saw them the Dolphins last week around a couple of plays. Ah, Apple Wildcats with Akeem Grant is that thing? Has them things wide receiver anyway. They've They've been getting more creative, and I think that they're going to have to do that because they're they're one of three now and they've been in ball games or just don't score. Well, it's also it's another desperate team coming into Levi's right. The Eagles were desperate and they played desperate. And that defence sucks in the defense. I mean, of course, it's one unit. It's one team. But if you can't blame the defense for that loss last week against the Eagles and right exactly and on the the old line, man, the old line is another concern. So I was going to say on the flip side for the Niners running game. It was weird because Jeff Wilson just kind of disappeared last week. What gives? What use? I could have used three points. Losing Kruger Wilson, you know, I mean, I do. Yeah. You start a guy, you know, I mean, he gets to the end zone A couple of times you're looking to himto Don't know. Carry the ball three times. That's all I'm looking for tonight. Can I get three points out of Jeff Wilson? That's all I need. You know, you know what I would say. I would say that I think this because I don't think most it's going to play this week. I just think they want one more week to get him. I know he's practicing. I'm not confident on him Plan again. We're recording this on Thursday, so we'll see what happens the rest of the week. But If Moster does not play, I think that we will see a resurgence of Jeff Wilson. Cody, I think, yeah. E. I just think MacKinnon. He's given McKinnon a fair share of chances, and McKinnon hasn't been bad. He just hasn't been great. And like you said before, he doesn't have that speed that makes the linebackers commit to the run. So I think we'll see more wasn't more. Wilson seems more agile then McKinnon. Your team to the finish line. Is this podcast F s out of Dublin? Creative. Tony Ryan, I think I think you're right about Wilson. And that they I think it benefits the Niners tohave him involved? Yes, more. I just don't think he I think he did. That's the ball a couple of times last week..

"Com before I forget we had the draft and there's a lot to talk about about the draft and I was saying earlier. I want to get your thoughts. I know a lot of times rookie. Quarterback's like the season long people might be thinking rookie. Quarterback's aren't really that relevant. Or even some of these veteran quarterbacks that were affected but I feel like more and more people joe play best ball more and more people play dynasty more and more people play to quarterback leagues. I mean talking about all of the quarterbacks is important I feel like oh for sure and you know I was talking to some guys from the NFC which is which is a high stakes kind. A website lot of high stakes players. Play there and they have some best ball content as well about talking to Greg Ambrosius. Tom Ketogenic on Sirius. Xm A last night and they were talking. About how Joe Borough? The number one overall pick has moved up quote unquote to qb nineteen in ADP. And they said do I like him as a QB too? And I said Ross Arroz I said I kind of think he could be a qb one this year like I. I don't think it's that outrageous now. I have to point out rape before we started recording the pod. The bengals released. Andy Dalton. So Joe Borough is going to be the starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals. Everybody knew that anyway. But now it's just one hundred percent confirm and you do need to know these guys. But let's start with Joe Burrow because we know we get of the rookie quarterback's the four first rounders. He's the one who we know. One hundred percent. Barring injury is going to play week one and look the offensive. Line's a question. But they do get twenty nine thousand nine hundred Joan Williams back. Aj Green on the outside Tyler Boyd. In the slot t higgins. They drafted in the second round. You Got Joe Mixing Geo Bernard coming out of the backfield. John Ross is still there as the as either the third or the fourth wide receiver depending on. What happens with T. Higgins often tate is still there? He's a big body in the red zone. This is a team in Cincinnati that lead in twelve of its sixteen games last year and won only two of them so that would just be a simple crude way to say. This team probably was a little bit better than the record last year. And I think they are a team that can really come in and turn it around quickly so I see Cincinnati with Joe. Boroughs quarterback a team that can score some points. Here so Joe Borough. I would not be shocked if he puts up. Fringy top twelve quarterback numbers. If you're playing basketball or if you're in a deeper league we like to carry a backup quarterback. I would love to pair him. With Kinda Post Height veteran in the vein of Baker. Mayfield four fantasy. Because I think you'll get really good fantasy production out of that. So if you're in best ball. Maybe even two quarterback league. I love him as the second quarterback because barring injury he's playing a full season I like it. What about in Miami with Tonga via Loa. Well here's the interesting thing Anthony. I'm sorry Brian Flora's the coach here. He said when talking about two of that I guess. Their doctors haven't fully seen him yet. So that's fascinating because because of the pandemic you know they haven't seen the doctors haven't put them through tests and what did they happier In Miami they do have Ryan Patrick so I think two is less likely to start the season then Ryan Fitzpatrick. Then that Joe Borough is so keep that in mind and here's the other problem. I'm not a hundred percent certain the supporting cast in Miami all that great. This was kind of a meat and potatoes draft for them. They got the quarterback and then they started drafting players along the offensive line and on defense. Now they took they took The tackle in the first round data. Usc They took the guard in the second round so they have got guys who are going to come in and probably compete for starting jobs right away but the problem is if to a place week one devante Parker who obviously had the great twenty nineteen got himself a contract extension but there still is that feeling that creeps into the back of your mind that he performed in a contract year hasn't performed otherwise. It's a little bit concerning Preston. Williams was an intriguing twenty nineteen rookie the U. DFA. He actually led rookies in receptions. When he got hurt but he tours ACL last year. Mike Ezekie came on at the end of the year. The tight end but he was a little bit inconsistent. And then you have Albert Wilson Jr Akeem grant it's not a great supporting cast for to a Tonga Viola. So concerned here is even if to a plays. There isn't enough around him to support a high end. Fantasy producer here. He's more of the mid to low end. Qb To for me. Even if you were to guarantee me that he starts week one. What ABOUT HERBERT IN LA? Well there another team that like. The dolphins have an opportunity to start a veteran justin. Herbert is ready. And that would be tyrod. Taylor The thing about Herbert though is if herber were to start week one even though I have him behind to dynasty because I just think was a better safer prospect. Even though I haven't behind to a for dynasty I would actually rank herber above to a for this year simply because he's got some mobility and he's got much better weapons with the chargers to has in Miami Mike Williams Keenan Allen Austin Ecuador Hunter Henry. All those guys were there. They drafted a couple of wide receivers including Cage Hill. Somebody I think people thought was going to go a lot earlier in the draft. He went in the seventh round. He's kind of Keenan Allen after taxes type of guy. They drafted him the they brought in Joshua Kelly in the run game even though I don't think he's going to be a pass catcher but they have a solid run game there with the Austin Equa Justin Jackson and Joshua Kelly They drafted Joe read. the speedster at Virginia in the fifth round. So they've got more weapons there Than to a has Miami and just in Herber I think is more mobile than to us so if he were to start week. One I actually think there's a chance he can be that That quote Unquote Konami Code quarterback where he goes up and he goes down he goes left he goes right but ultimately he can produce good high upside numbers. I think on this podcast or at least Ross on the Ross football podcast. Greg cosell compared Justin Herbert as a prospect to Josh Allen. Many ways he's reminiscent. I don't think he's I don't think he's as athletic is Josh Allen. I don't think he can run the way Josh Allen Ken but if you kind of get that image into your head of what. Justin Herbert can provide your fantasy team. You'll see why for the immediate future if all things were equal and both guys were starting week one. I'd take Justin herber on my fantasy team over to. Wow I can see that too especially the running part of it. I'm with you on that Joe Totally with you on that. I mean I'm not even GonNa say shows even say it. Jalen her is there. Is there even a thing there? I mean is it even thing well? Jalen hurts is for twenty twenty I would rank him above Jordan love. Only because I think jalen hurts is going to have a role and see. I've read to really good pieces on. Jalen hurts pick and they made the same points and one guy to love the pick and another guy didn't like the pick and those and those articles were from Kevin Cole at Pro Football Focus and she'll Kapadia from the athletic. Both of whom are very good at their jobs. And Kevin Cole essentially said look and and both guys were measured and neither guy was like. Oh my God this is a referendum on Carson Wentz and both guys acknowledged the eagles place a premium on the backup quarterback position for obvious reasons. Nick foles want a super bowl and both guys acknowledged that Jalen hurts gives the eagles upside at that position that very few teams act and I thought it was fascinating that they both kind of approached it from the same angle but came up with different conclusions. She okay. Potty is conclusion was kind of the human angle of the story how does Carson Wentz feel about this carson? Wentz had to go through a situation last year where somebody was leaking out of the locker room. Oh I wish. We had nick foles or something like that. And they they didn't trust Carson's leadership and chemical on the other hand. He argued that look. The Eagles are just trying to set themselves up to win. And I guess in both guys acknowledge the best possible outcome here is Carson. Wentz stays healthy. He re- he resumes his twenty seventeen form. Which I think you would agree. Ross at the end of twenty one thousand nine despite his lack of Weapons Carson. Wentz was getting back to that. He dragged the corpse of an eagles roster to the playoffs and I think both guys came to the same conclusion that the best possible outcome for the Eagles is Carson. Wentz stays healthy makes. This jalen hurts pick from a quarterback perspective completely irrelevant but I think the the idea for the eagles here is. Let's increase our margin for error at the position and there's no doubt that Carson wentz injury history played into this now. I think you can make the argument that all right so if you're worried about Carson Wentz is injury history why do you give the guy nine? Figures guaranteed last summer. And then decide. You're going to draft a second round quarterback got taken out by cheap shot in a playoff game after playing a full season. I think that's fair but I also think this this will. I don't think this was simply the eagles saying. Hey Look Carson suffered a concussion in the playoff game. We've really got invested in the quarterback position. I just happened to think this was a player that they really liked. Probably thought he was better than the position. He was drafted at I venture I would venture to guess. They probably had a first round grade on them. Even though they didn't take him in the first round that would be my guess and they view Jalen hurts somebody who if they want him to contribute right away and Carson Wentz is playing a high level of football and he. Staying Healthy jalen hurts. Ken Do some of that. Tastes Hill stuff. But I don't simply think your draft Haysom Hill in the second round. I just don't think you do that. I think the eagles view that as part of what Jalen hurts is and then they view him as a really flashy of really controversial insurance policy to be quite frank but from a fantasy perspective.
