"Darryl is had no goal to go carries in twenty twenty. His last goal line carey was in twenty one thousand nine. That's in the regular season. He might have had one in the playoffs. So i've any in the regular season bringing it out and also jacob. I'm not sure if you mentioned this but you noted in an e mail that patrick mahomes hasn't really thrown to his running backs that much he did. Though in spurts with damian williams down the stretch and twenty eighteen and twenty nineteen but yeah that was worth noting to but where. Where are you guys comfortable taking clyde average there he is going fourteenth overall running back twentieth. Nineteen twentieth over all off the board after antonio gibbs in basically same. Adp as joe mixon sabbarra document rv. Fifteen Just ahead of dobbins chris carson But yeah i mean. There are legitimate concerns here with his passenger involvement. Main thing for me. I think like you noted we. We didn't see enough. Said he's not gonna have the goal line role. I think a different kid. And i don't put a ton of stock into like success ongoing russia's especially on such small sample size is kinda random i think but the passing down involvement. I'm very very worried about Because we just haven't seen anything that's going to indicate that will change shits dislike speculation that it will because he's the second player to jacobs point. The offensive line wasn't exactly great lashing. It should be this year. yes it should. And so that might make the coaching staff. More confident in handing off to our to layer in those golden go situations inside the three and that would help stats schedules. A little rough to be in the starting off against glenn. Baltimore the chargers on up. That's that dangerous of defense philadelphia after that. I think they're gonna have a good run defense hitting buffalo's defense can be pretty good washington after that. It's not an easy schedule for edwards. Allaire i'm comfortable taking him toward the very end of around two okay. Let's talk about robbie. Anderson reunited with sam darnold and it feels so nuts. I don't know who sings that song jacob. Do you have that album cover on your wallet. Anybody's looking at don't that didn't make the map of the united states in album covers behind him..

"Are spy a couple more questions to wrap things up here your thoughts here. Do you think awesome mettler. We'll take a step forward. Is this offense matures or do you think is touch. Upside is limited now. I think i don't think his touch upside is limited. I think austin he came back from a really nasty hamstring injury last year and played well and so if there was any injury concern that behind it. I think that austin has i'm incredible opportunity especially as pass catcher. I feel the same way. He might be not the best. I don't know he's right there in the mix right and he and christian mccaffrey and a couple of others are amongst the top pass catching running back in the. Nfl wouldn't ten games last year. Average less than twelve russians russia's per game average over five catches brigades morning arrives at the floor is so significant for austin I understand it's a new offense. I understand new offensive system. But if you look at the investment in the backfield this year this off season who was the chargers added. Makes you think to yourself okay. This is a problem right. I think joshua kelly may have a role but we saw what happened when he was the backup guy. Lash wasn't a ton of upside there for josh kelley. I really believe there's a chance that push comes to shove austin hecklers volume goes up in not levels off or even goes down. i brought. Ooh here's a good. One comes from jim to wrap things up. How do you decide when to take travis. Celts over a high end running back. What is your general draft plan. If you end up with celts in the first this winter all i can take it. It's i feel like i've made. I feel like we kinda send this. So you know might my general thought. Is that five running backs for sure. Go one through five. This is assuming standard scoring a rule of thumb. Is that if we don't bring up the scoring formality just assume it's standard scoring like if i'm talking about a tight end premium leaguer. A half non. Pbr scoring two quarterback league. I'll make sure. I noted that being said I think travis kelsey belong somewhere in picks seven attempts to find you after running backs. The i five that we talked about earlier. Plus saquon barkley for me maybe not for you and that anything from there is fair game and you know there could come a year trappist kelsey. Who's in his early thirties levels off and looks more like a tight end. Who's in his early thirties. Looks like i don't think that's this year. And because of the difference making edge that he provides his position. It's not just that you're getting a weekly starter. That is so so good had double digit fantasy points in every game that he played last year. It's that you're also getting tight end. Who almost every week. If you were just look at the position is probably absent. When he plays the raiders on the chief by the raiders. Getting you somewhere between six to maybe even like twelve fourteen fifteen point edge at the position and then speaking of everything's generally my general draft plan. If i get kelsen the first is probably running back in the second round. that's again we talked about earlier. How we like to have that feeling of comfort with one running back early if the board has thinned out and there's a stefan digs or devante atoms with aaron rodgers available for me. I'll consider it but again thinking speaking. Generally if i take travis kelsey. I'm thinking running back right after that. Exactly where your draft position matters. Because if i'm late in a ten team league or twelve team leave. And he's there. And i decided i want to get him in the like. Let's say you're the the final third of your draft pick orders than. I might take him and i get a running back because you know you're gonna to get looped back pretty quickly so you're going to have a good idea which running backs are going to be available. No doubt about that. it's all we have for. Today's find your wonderful job. We'll talk to you most likely next week and we'll talk to the podcast universe. Most likely a week.

"Your bench bench. I'm really glad you said that. Because i had that. That makes the difference right so on my bench ceiling that ceiling you on my bench ceiling on my roster generally speaking ceiling as well right because again like fantasy football. You're not you're not rewarded for fifth place writing your league so i do think there's something to be said for almost always chasing upside. There might be some balance there though right stefania. So let's say for example you chase the upside of darryl henderson now that we have the camakers news tours achilles maybe on your bench you find somebody that doesn't and i'm trying to think of a perfect name doesn't represent quite as much upside but might give you a reasonable floor. But i'm just making this step off Maybe two miles gaskin as an example right as somebody that may not necessarily gonna. He made the top ten upside. But you think if he gets his touches he'll be a top twenty five back without thinking too much about it so that might be an example of a situation where you chase upside early and then balance it out with floor later before we have a couple more questions fantasy focus.

"Really quick would see if we can get through for five. You mentioned earlier And soldiers will reiterate. This comes from joey. Are you back on the. Eh now that the adp is reasonable. Which is currently thirtieth overall. Yes and i think it's too early to abandon someone after rookie season where it was i. I'm not sure what happened in terms of how they decided to utilize their running backs but clearly When client ric flair struggled at the goal line felt like that was significant changes in terms of utilization and he's another year into his career. Now i thought it was interesting. This adam teicher report that That both mahomes and edwards lehrer suggested they should throw more passes to their running backs this year. So you know if anyone can deliver the ball where it needs to be. Make it easier on a running back. I think that guy. Patrick mahomes i do i think like i said i think he'd has gone too far. I think he's clearly the top of their depth chart. I think he is the guy and i think there's reasonable there. I know that he had a couple of game deserted. Saturated some of the rushing total but in borderline worst case scenario which i feel like in some ways last year was for c. h. Yet eight or eight hundred and three rushing yards thirty six catches five total touchdowns in thirteen games. Played in one of those hurt. So i do think there's reason to be more optimistic. I agree with you there. Here's a philosophical question. both do prefer ceiling or floor players on your bench. Does that change with a number of teams in your league. That comes from david your thoughts on on.

"Too big when they zag and maybe try to get in the early right. Maybe you're saying your spring league is saying well you know i'm i'm going to like let someone else drafts to fund digs because i can get whoever it. Is robert woods. That i can get mike evans. Later on you end up getting stefan digs is like the fifteenth player on the board. Should you be hunting value wide receiver early because of everybody's patients always hunting by. I think that's good. Draft strategy feel like a broken record but it is a bit of watching the board and seeing how things are playing out. And that's exactly the time that i would go for a top receiver like that. If you see that. I'm not gonna i'm not gonna be the person who drives wide receiver in the first round. Most likely you know. I'll never say never but that's most likely not going to be made but if i see that all everyone's waiting because they've heard there's such value wide receiver. Wait i'm gonna wait and they're going all these different directions. Why wouldn't i take advantage of that. And try and get myself one of the top wide receivers even if that meant that. I'm leaving the position alone for the next three. Or four rounds. I think that's fair. I just think that because of the depth of wide receivers though you're right like we always be hunting value like in general fantasy football because of the depth of wide receivers divining. I found myself. I'm just doing this dynasty startup league right now with ten other people in the football industry. And like i snagged. I wanna say davante adams something. Like thirty first overall thirtieth overall but there are plenty of reasons to quarterback lead. He went later than But i'm just. I'm i'm in the eleventh round right now and i'm like wow like that guy could certainly certainly be a guy that i count on and rely upon going forward Last thought from mike's playable get one more time go find it on. Espn plus tight end. Extremely top heavy but trending up. We knows to find you that you've got a clear top. Three this year tempers kelsey jordan. Kelsey george kill and travis kelce bowie. Trump's celtics wrong. Have you seen this or not. No wait with. I have and he goes. Yes so corrected me he right. And as a matter of fact like when they do their football introductions like they don't say travis kelsey cincinnati or tracing kelsey cincinnati. I think this might be one where maybe like other. When they were born orbits a couple of generations ago. It was Kelce but now they go by kelsey so we can. I mean at this point. What is the preferred by them. Because i like to respect how people prefer their names to be the sense. I got was that maybe you know i think if you say kelce it's like a sign that you're paying attention but they're not gonna take offense to kelsey. We've come far right like clearly. They're not offended by it They don't seem to be bothered by much. We love both the kelsey brothers. So my guess is that this could be kind of like when alvin kamara was asked. Just come on isn't it. i don't really care. Yeah i think tyrod has a preference right like it's tyrod taylor. It's not tyrod. Toronto chimera slash kamara kelsey slash qealth. Celts are appropriate. I think we're seeing a little more value though in titans your by. I do feel like we've got players that could be useful this season. I'm not saying that their guys and i'm putting draft premiums on but again if you out on those top three. I think the skier there players. I feel more comfortable with than i would have. Drafting is like the tenth or eleventh tight than i did in previous years. Do great i do. I think i'm really curious about some particular ones. Like i agreed the top three you now. There's really no debate about that There's a lot of chatter. Kyle pits some people. Think he's being overdrafted drafted too early because we he's rookie. We've never seen this. But i mean this. I think the opportunity is there for him so i still love And he is you know. And i i think he will end up top five tight end without a doubt curiously. Think about a couple of names. No fans who i think is extremely talented at. But there's big quarterback question there and the offense goes as quarterback coast and teach hopkinson. Who people are in love with this year but a might have we forgotten. The jared goff is quarterback there now. And i just don't have much confidence in it. I think his daniels not here today. Citizen have to hear this. But i don't have confidence in the detroit offense at all confused about the running back situation. I think jamal williams is going to have more than people are giving credit for. I don't know Tj hopkinson makes sense as a regular target but is that going to be executed. So those are two. I really wonder about is helped me out. Yeah i've i've got fans Ranked ninth and i've got hockey. Rinks six which. I don't want to be the person that's like taking the easy way out on these things to release to find you but i do believe that my tight end six through maybe even sixteen which that would be to jay hawkins and all the way down to austin hooper are not exactly perfectly interchangeable but in some ways they could be right like let me read some of the names that are in that mix. And i'm telling you. I could see a world where they finished as the sixth best tight end. Jay hawkins in dallas gutter logan thomas mike ezekie johnny smith hunter henry. Heck you can have two patriots tight. End finishes top ten. I know that's incredibly unlikely. Based off history. It's also incredibly infrequently where a team has two of the four highest paid tight end in football right so they clearly wanna make that a big part of their offense. There are a lot of guys that i could see having top six potential at the same time at the same time. I could see all the guys that i mentioned. Finishing outside the top ten maybe hopkinson like fantasy football specifically a tight. End the very very fickle spot arts again. Go find peace. Mike has all kinds of great. Of course michael be a part of our podcast several times throughout the.

"And they're definitely hurts his opportunity But i know i again depends my draft position But if i find in that first half of the round. I certainly want one of those top running backs. I'm there to find you. And i know that there are people who are subscribers. Toothy zero rv theory and a kyle jordan on twitter noted that i keep hearing about the strategy. I'm not sure i buy it. What you guys say and some are wondering. What is this your running back strategy and miss no are right. You're drafting and team with running backs right. Basically the idea behind by zero running backs that you're waiting until a much later round then you normally see people draft running back. Sometimes it's round six sometimes. It's even around five but the idea is that you can leverage Your the fact that others are drafting running back early to potentially and this would have to be perfect scenario but like you could hypothetically. Let's imagine aaron rodgers playing for the packers for second walkaway from the first three rounds of year. Draft stephania with devante. Atoms are call even calls devan digs if there's uncertainty surrounding aaron rodgers travis kelsey and patrick mahomes for the first three rounds. Now that's gonna include you then drafting a running back. Who's will little less certain. But you might have such a dramatic or potentially dramatic weekly edge especially a tight end a quarterback that you could offset some of your running back woes. You know him. My thought senator this i and maybe this is wrong strategy. But i've always felt like going into the season. You and i am act. Everybody in the podcast plays it a lot of leagues. You're not gonna win the malls. Matter-of-fact might not win. You might win one or two and a year and feel great about itar. Heard you know you play attend team legal tent. You have a ten percent chance of winning. But i always liked to increase my floor right and i've always felt like having some running-backs feel about going into the season always increases my floor. I just felt like. I feel like there's more volatility and the potential for a dud roster if i go in with the euro running back strategy doesn't mean totally bypass it but that's why i tend to not rely upon it. What are your thoughts. Have you know. I was never a fan of bat. Wait on on running backs. Even though. I'm the same person who says running backs most vulnerable position you. Can you invest in a top tier. Running back gives you expect them to touch the ball especially in pr lakes with so many pass catching running backs. Now that that combo. And last year i have to take from berkeley in a bunch of leagues. And how did the what happened to me. So at just if i had avoided him i would ended up with a perhaps similar roster. Let's said invested somewhere else drafted running back later. Might have worked out even better given that i lost my number one running back but that's always going to be the potential to happen for any player on the field and i think there are so few running backs who clearly have this dominant role within their running back grouping on a team you know how many teams have such a disparity between the top running back and the next guy chris. Mccaffrey is going to have next to no competition for the amount of volume of work that he's going to do in carolina If saquon totally healthy i would say the same. Zeke is going to have the lion's share of the work where he is and that's what you're looking for and while you can potentially piece together running backs they can do very well for you. I think you lose out if you're not able to get one of those now if i'm in the back half of my draft and those those top ones around i'm having to pick Between some of these running backs where the workload might be split like you said nick. Tub kareem hunt doesn't feel like a totally fair split because as you said i agree. It's nick cheb until sometimes kareem hunt. It's not really like a fifty fifty split. But then then i might start shifting my strategy and i do think there's some value to be had again when the the the heat or the pushback goes too far clyde resellers that example drafted early last year. One case by me grafted too early based on the prospect and everything looked good week one because we saw on the field a ton but then that really shifted at. I don't think that now he he's his value is such in-draughts that you can get him in. I think the fifth or sixth or even later rounds in some drafts. I've seen and he still gonna be their top running back. I believe maybe it's going to be better balanced for him in that offense this year so I am not a zero. I don't go in with that strategy. Zero running back. But i can't say that i wouldn't i wouldn't end up taking someone later if everyone in my first round draft running back early and i was stuck at the back end also worth noting define it like if you play in nine or ten leagues. Like you probably will have a couple of instances or at least one where you go for zero rb strategy but if you play in just one league and we're always mindful the fact that some people listen to the show just playing one maybe two leagues and they don't wanna have a season net explodes before their own is within the first month. So that's why i would say less frequently. Am i suggesting the zero rb strategy. Just one more real quick on the renting. Max you know we were talking about no here league and knowing the structure of it knowing the scoring and going back to us doing this super flex league where the value for quarterbacks with different than and so we were all reaching they're so it's twelve twelve teams in the league and i actually got austin neckers my first running back in the third round. I wanna say and that that's amazing to me because i think he is undervalued in some white isn't so that was a situation where i went. Patrick laws i. I was able to get austin edgar later and so again you just have to watch the draft or if you have ideas on who you want to target you see the draft is going that can influence. You don't feel like you have to do it because somebody said take running back. I met her About that so just a couple. More thoughts from mike playbook on wide receivers. He knows it's as deep as ever and i went through. My right now is to find you. Or the consensus is an espn dot com which are pretty similarly aligned. And i think there's a case that at least the first twenty five maybe even twenty eight wide receivers might be players that i would be comfortable with if they were my number one wide receiver and it may sound crazy to you but if you told me i walked away from my draft and i was so well built at running back in tight end the my top wide receiver was deontay johnson. I'd say fine. I realized there. There are certainly scenarios. The guy nearly ninety catches last season right. Julio jones another guy being drafted be ranked so interested the twenties but but you can certainly feel more comfort with julio jones as my wide receiver one than i had to believe. He's running back. I'm sorry wide receiver. Eighteen on the board right now. I'd feel more comfortable that my team was going to be good if he was my wide receiver one than it would if the running back at running back eighteen chris carson was my wider seat running back one right so the depth of wide receiver is just so overwhelming that. I'm okay with waiting. But i guess the counterpoint would be if everyone is waiting on wide receivers understanding that there's value there..

"That always difficult decision. I may i ask you something if you if you knew that. He was not going to play until october. Would you still keep him at six a. A be if i if you're going to play until october which would mean probably three to four games missed. He might be man a yankee all the way down to eleven or twelve for me. The reason i say that is that has been put out there by jordan. But i feel like that is not really being looked at now granted. A lot can change. And you've seen the videos the hype videos of saquon training. It looks fantastic and you look at his legs. You could not be ready and look at the video. Tell me how many times you see it. Shot from the left versus. I mean there's things it's these are the things. I look for and while his left leg looks enormous and his right leg. By comparison to normal human beings looks quite large. His right his left not necessarily the same. And there's a lot of nuance with this kind of injury in terms of coming back where it's not necessarily you're worried about the graph tearing again. You're not worried about the aco re injury per se. That's always you know at least base level concern but look at delvin cook. What happened the year. He came back from his aco and as his volume increase. The of the hamstring. Problem never was really healthy. That first year those are the things that they worry about bringing a player back like this so i would just say. I think that it's been floated out there for a reason and people need to keep in mind that that could be the case. If you wanna draft saquon early because you think. I don't care he's worth it because if i get the second half of the season and he's going to be that guy then i'll just make up for it by picking up someone else early I would just say you better provide some insurance for your roster under the premise that he may be available for a few weeks very very interesting So a again. this is another reason. Why if you could afford to do so drafting in late. September late august september is always worthwhile strategy a little bit of news with desert a rip through here. Aaron rodgers the latest saga with him in green bay latest chapter in the saga includes news from adam. Schefter this morning. That green bay offered to make him the highest paid quarterback in the nfl the a two year extension on top of the three years. He has remaining this off season and it was declined as aaron. Rodgers is not concerned about the money. Right now is to find you no surprise there. Here's what i'll say is that. I don't know when this things come to a conclusion. I don't know how it's going to come to a conclusion. I don't know if the conclusion includes the possibility from playing for somebody else. I don't know if there is some trap door that the packers can try to escape through that will allow aaron rodgers to change his mind or compel aaron rodgers to change his mind. But at this point if you're asking me questions about how high roger should be drafted was of mean for davante adams just being transparent with you like i'm guessing i really am right like eh roger seems principled enough and and has been acting as such this off season that if you told me aaron rodgers. This isn't played all this year. I wouldn't be stunned at the same time if you told me that. Aaron rodgers and the packers were able to work out in agreement that allows him to be guaranteed or effectively guaranteed a trade after this year and he decides by the middle of training camp. He's back he's gonna play it out for one more year. I also wouldn't be stunned. So i i would say that an and you can be curious if your thoughts differ. Davante adams is large enough sample size of being not just fantastic with aaron rodgers but really with other wide receivers and with other quarterbacks we saw him with brett hundley one year. He had like eight touchdowns or ten touchdowns in that season which aaron rodgers missed a significant period of time. He won't he won't go number one overall amongst wide receivers. If i knew aaron rodgers wasn't gonna play but ellen dropping pass like five or six. He's just that special of a player. Does that feel different than your approach if air if there's even uncertainty surrounding aaron rodgers when your draft comes around yeah well i think just because of the quarterback change value drops a little bit. I'm not making that. Push to get devante. Adam so high in the first round and i think you know the green bay has been certainly going out of their way to let us know how good jordan lovelock's how much improvement. Ota's but of course it wasn't throwing top receivers than because they weren't there. I think your two options are the ones i foresee either. Aaron rodgers sits out the year and takes the hit financially. Because he doesn't care he's he's duggan or he's guaranteed you know when you're in any out and he doesn't show up until they i don't care barron. Roger shows up the day before the season starts the minute he walks in. Everyone's value skyrockets right. He doesn't mean camp. They have chemistry all between all of them And yes. I still think i still think devante davante adams probably remains at the at my top in my top. Three may be number one. But it's hard for me to just equate glue with jordan love. I just don't know how that offense looks. I mean we know one does right. I feel i keep is funny. I was actually having this conversation with a coach. It won't point this summer whose team. They're sorting through a variety of competitions. And he said to me you guys talking about. Who's going to win the job. When is so and so going to be their side of the starter like You realize teams. Don't know the answer to that question. That's kind of why they're holding a competition. So when i say. We don't know what the panthers offense looks like with jordan love nor does the packers. He played zero games last year. So i think it's worth noting that s- you know as much as you may have confidence in jordan because he was a first round pick last year or as much as you may be concerned by the fact that he wasn't even there. Qb to last year a lot of things can change once a player actually has a chance to be on the field so our that's enough for the news. Here's defined. I wanna get to us some really interesting stuff from my clay and then of course some user question before we get to guam..

"This is very good news for the long term health of blind and then picking up his fifth year. Option tells you they're potentially interested in sake one long-term so are they going to run him out there and ruin him early no for fantasy purposes. I'd be thinking there's at least the potential that he is not ready to start when the season begins then even when he does. What's his volume. Initially there. i think a lot of people have sort of wrap their minds around the idea that there are probably six running backs that many rancours will have as their clear. Cut top six going into the season. In some order christian. Mccaffrey delving cook alvin kamara. Derrick henry ezekiel elliott and also saquon. As a matter of fact. I just pulled up our espn dot com rankings. And all six of us have a rank up there right now. Have those six in. some order. Always have christian. Mccaffrey one and then from there. There's a little bit less consensus. But if i were to do those rankings right now. Well i wouldn't have to change him. Because i already had sake one number six out of those six. But i wouldn't be surprised if the lack of certainty that he's available for the beginning of the preseason multiplied by the idea that the giants might be a little prudent with his workload early in the season pushes him down to number six more across the board in those rankings amongst our other. Espn dot com rancor. So we're not sounding alarms right now on one but if you're drafting right now in you're making difficult call it picked four or five and you're splitting hairs between you'll elliott and save on bark. Layer ezekiel elliott saquon. Barkley and derrick. Henry this might be useful. Context have available for you right now. If you're as you're making..

"To find. You mean they've got like six grand and miami's got plenty of guys the patriots like they're carrying at least a couple extra always always always refining teams. That are like all right. There's probably because. I just don't see how to not definitely not going to be via trade but to your point about the. You mentioned both the niners in the dolphins. Let's not forget savant. Akhmed was a forty niner at the beginning of last training camp and then got claimed by the dolphins off waivers and if you remember his brief fill in as the starter look more than capable so right now. I think he's going to wonder where the rams turned. I think more likely it will be patient will figure this out with got the entire month of august to sort through it. But i wouldn't suspected. Maybe i'm way off your the rams make a major move but to level said i think for now henderson probably going to catapult somewhere in the i would say twenty twenty five range for running backs speaking of running backs and this is a running back. Who's way higher up in the preseason rankings. But maybe we'll see his stock dropped just a little bits to find you. Saquon barkley spoke yesterday to pro camp. And i don't believe it's the first time we've either heard from saquon or someone close saquon this off season but it's the most recent sound from him in. What did you make about what he had to say. Specifically what did he have to say. The word vet that are being quoted and running on the bottom line are we'll we'll see when asked about whether he'd be ready to go. The started training camp will see how 'bout wake one. We'll see you know kind of the message of taking it one day at time. She how he's doing. This message has really been put forward since the ota's but somehow i feel like people have not been paying attention. There's this this desire. I think to imagine saquon barkley being back to what he was at people have sort of discounted the information that i think has been there and jordan on has done a great job of of laying down the tidbits as they rolled out especially during ota's he was not visible during ota's he was rehabbing safe on us and the giants said something that i thought people ignored which was we are going to make sure. He's one hundred percent ready for his body and his injury before we return and they made it clear. There was no time line and that extended into the season and i feel like people just ignored. That we're paying attention is going to be back. I wrote a piece for us. it's still up on. Espn dot com if you have espn plus and my point was this is not a binary issue this is not saquon will be good or he'll never be the same you know he's either great like he was. It'll never be the same. It's not like fat. This is really a question of win. Does he get back to being saquon. I think given the injury given the surgery given the progression and given where he is and what he's doing which is what you really have to look at. You can't compare it to every other. Acl sale meniscus. You have to look at where he is currently where he is currently is not doing the football things that you would anticipate. I don't think you're going to see him at the start of camp. I think they're going to ease him in volume wise and even when he gets back to playing. I think that happens the.
"akers" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Football
"Ever so close. We've got rookies for a variety of teams reported the training camp today and field installation. You're hanging out with you on this tuesday. hello stephan. we've got some news upon us today. I feel like that you went third person right out of the gate. I you know what. I don't know why i did. That actually feels like a little bit out of character for me. I apologize for those are offended. I leave the third person. It's not just so out of character. I'd sometimes to be back with you. I've been away from the pod for awhile and down. You know traveling again. And now here. I am in and soon me holding down the fort so close to the time we all back together which We are two weeks away. I'll get a specific date at some point soon but we promise you guys will be back and we'll be back in our fancy studio Like we were last year and we cannot wait for those days. Kyle knows already busy. Hammering away on preseason show documents but we a bit of unexpected news minutes before you and i started recording this podcast which ten thirty am eastern time on tuesday which involves a potential star running back. That's camakers lost. Angeles rams bummer. This one is what can you tell us. I now while he tore his achilles which at the one thing. I'll say don't you start with the good news like this used to be automatically thought of is like the death sentence for an nfl player especially running back and it's not necessarily that anymore. We've seen guys come back from his injury. Got marlin mac in indianapolis Certainly he's not atop the depth chart like kim acres was because they have jonathan taylor marlin to play this year and It's it's just so unfortunate to me. The timing of it is terrible Obviously high hopes for camakers this this season. It's really interesting because we have seen guys come back from these new more modern techniques in the rehab that they're doing within a six month window sometimes shorter than that little tougher running back. But when you look at where we are halfway through july. It's really hard to envision unless they were deep deep into the playoffs and at that point It's just hard to imagine that they would use anything. But i are spot for camakers yet. One has to figure the second year running back is going to miss the entirety of the twenty twenty one season however long that lasts for los angeles. Adam schefters up tweet to his first report. Suggested as much so just borough news to find for any number of reasons not the least of which is that. This guy looked like the real deal at the end of last year. He learned so well for los angeles when he got the chance to be the featured back. We know for many seasons. Sean mcveigh when he didn't have earlier. Maybe not many season before a season or two with a little bit of a hot hand approach whether it was malcolm brown or carol henderson or even to a degree three headed mazar at the beginning of last year but it seemed like the rams are trending towards having a one man band in the back field. That's not going to be the case with no camakers if you take a look at the rams depth chart right now beyond camakers at running back. There's one name knows. It's daryl henderson. But he's a third round bay a couple of years ago that the rams used a second round pick a year later in camakers not replaced to find you but to supplant as their go to go to back so i think by default duro henderson should be looked at as the starter behind him. Raymond claes ball previously a return specialist for the buccaneers jig funk their seventh round pick out of maryland good college player also on the depth chart right now in some other names that are a little bit further down the depth chart less familiar. But thanks to find. We have to ask ourselves a couple of questions about. And we'll start with what the value would be for. Daryl henderson and i think after that we need to look into whether the rams should be considering adding a running back somewhere else. How intrigue would you be by daryl henderson given this news running kim anchors. Now it's interesting. I'm not sure how to feel about him. I don't really believe that he is going to be a workhorse back. I just have this sense that there's going to be an addition that happens as you mentioned. There's free agents are bailable. None of them particularly outstanding at the moment. But you know how things happen during training camp and people shift around. I mean obviously daryl henderson's valiant moves up a bit because there is no camakers ahead of him. But i'm not running out to draft him in fantasy of as an rb what i mean. That's not where i'm looking at it. Just don't feel that workloads going to be there for him. He's not that remember. And i'm sure many this gas but just a brief reminder third round pick a couple years ago five eight so not a huge guy two hundred or some pounds. Is it an nfl player. Obviously pretty thick and well built but last year's defined you had one hundred thirty eight carries average four and a half yards per. Carry at five rushing touchdowns. I don't know if there is a specific reason why he never took on that. Lead back. role weather was the rams. Don't view miss the kind of guy that should be an every down back or if it was that they just found something makers that was so spectacular that they had to let the good times roll with camakers but it seems like the first crack at him. Would i practice. this job. Goes to daryl henderson. And i would think savant. You're right. He's not a top ten rb in preseason rankings. Even with this news as fresh as it is. But i would think somewhere in the top twenty twenty five range for right. Now daryl henderson. Unless it's the big unless there is an addition through free agency or trade. Current free agents include the likes of adrian. Peterson dodd girly. Which were you suggest that one. Let's not forget the terms that todd early in the rams divorced over it was ugly to say the least. But i suppose trainer. Things have happened than a player returning to a place where he wants left on with a bitter taste in his mouth. Dan lewis obviously spent last year with the giants. You've got players like shawn mccoy. Who recently said he wants to Has talked to some teams. He of course back back super bowl champion so there are some options out there. Maybe on bell. I don't think anybody is an obvious. You gotta go grab him but still they all feel like they're the little bit over the hill options you know i've been there is nothing about any of those options that you suggest might be necessary for them as football team. None of it feels great for fantasy. And i think what probably I think we'll probably makes more sense for the rams rather than signing one of those free agents into is examining whether the waiver wire or examining the trademark it because as we know a lot. Nfl teams have good depth..
Can Vaccinated People Spread the Virus?
"You or do you not carry Cove it after you're fully vaccinated, the CDC is walking back a statement by its own director about that very question. Dr Rochelle Wolinsky has said publicly this week that the virus is not carried by those who are fully vaccinated for The New York Times reached out to the CDC reporting tonight that Dr Wolinsky spoke broadly about This and that it's possible that some people who are fully vaccinated could get Cove it. CBS News Medical contributor. Dr David Akers joins us earlier to clarify the situation confusing. So if you were fully vaccinated two weeks after your second shot or the first shot of J and J, then at that point, you're exposed to somebody with covert. What we know is about 70% of people will have no virus at all. 30% may have low levels of virus and a small number may be symptomatic. It's dramatically lower virus than if they weren't vaccinated. And the big question is, is it enough virus to spread to somebody else? We think potentially, it is enough to spread to somebody who's immune suppressed, but we don't know if it could spread. You know, a normal individual in those studies are ongoing study in college students, But we're not gonna know those results for several months. The data out of the UK and Israel show that is very unlikely, but it's not. This is clearly impossible. Is it possible to CDC is worried about saying you're completely covert free once you're fully vaccinated because it could lead to others who are around vaccinated people to perhaps let their guard down and lose the mask, not social distance and that the CDC couldn't affect cause a surge with its own guidance. Yeah, I think it, you know, and it's too soon, right? We don't have immunity passport, So you know, we can't say anybody who's that We've actually not where I'm at, because we don't have a way that document that you've been vaccinated presently, and at the same time we just don't have enough. 80. Yet we're collecting data as we go in areas that have been very heavily vaccinated, like the United Kingdom in Israel were doing trials here turn learn more, but there's no wheel test. Are you infectious?
Breach of the Week
"With justin justin. What's up what's happening here with another breach of the week. Fragments fragment fred delman freshman recommend sui delray ernst and luck now we Is a law firm that specializes in immigration law. And they were contracted by google to do. I nine identity verification. Your i nine. Is your your documents that you have to submit When you get hired to prove you're a either national or us whatever you're sort of immigration status so that you can be legally employed in the united states and in that process you share really sensitive information like passports id's You know birth certificates. Basically the whole purpose of the i nine is to prove who you are. And so these this law firm basically got whacked and it doesn't really say there's not a whole lot of specific information but the files were a supposedly stored in it was single file. That had a bunch of information in it. it doesn't say how they got it or or what was actually in there and in fact we found the letter of the breach that the attorney or the law firm sent to folks bud which was posted on the state of california website. Yeah because i think in i mean so it hosted the template yes example that was sent out the impact. Now through the attorney. General's office in california. So yes i guess just just reading what happened. Yeah right so. We recently became aware of suspicious activity within our computer network while our investigation is ongoing. We have discovered that an authorized third party. Aker he access to a single file. Aiding personal information leading to i nine employment. Verification services is file contain personal information for a discrete number of google irs. Informal googlers hooting. You personally yes so not a lot. No and it sounds like it was again. I mean they specifically say a single file which again so they probably had a shared drive. Set up with all the stuff. Just you know. Some folder loaded up with information. Or you know. I or a database of some sort but either way like this that's super compromising data and i mean we say so if someone has unauthorized access. They're pretty has unauthorized access. I don't have it just to a file right there in there somehow director right exactly where unless it does beg the question me. This was insider. You know like the guy got fired. And he's like all right puts us drive in loads file up. It's been real or you just kind of thumbing through the file names. This one looks interesting and this is This was akin to recollecting the pm Breach because of just the the fact that you're you've got in some cases so it again. I don't think it says when these files referral because there's current and past but again we're in the middle of a pandemic so a lot of people are using digital versions of this other scanning id's scanning birth certificates and then sending them to do employment verification and depending on how these how this law firm handles that could be the emailed it and then the person just like drags the attachment folder into the file. And that's how they do it But i remember chrysler with an i nine. You're supposed to like verify these things in person right so they've modified because you can't especially like if you're remote how would you. How would you do that. I don't know i'm shrugging and you know again. It's one of those situations where i mean. If you work for google would well. I don't know that's not true because there's all kinds of people to work google. They're not all exactly. That's honestly probably would have been the better scenario here. Maybe it's just the everyone's dragging it into google. The free google drive document but good news. Free identity theft protection jackpot nail. That which just got it from

"akers" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today Podcast
"But then later i think in the second quarter they had first or second ago and both running backs for in and mayfield threw a touchdown he you play action but both guys were in so he will get in at the goal line at times but you know he's just not catching the ball much and the fourteen carries are a little deceiving because so many of them came late nursing the lead just trying to wind down the clock and it led to hunt having a poor average. Two right so there. There's a lot to take away from that. That makes you not confident in kareem hunt being a valuable fantasy asset. All right believe it or not. Kiki is the top priority on the waiver. Wire one of them. I'm not sure if. I can even name a couple of other ones that maybe it can maker's probably not there anymore. And even if he was his rushing average was very good in the game. Seventy four percents. And yeah like you'd rather have cam akers than kiki wouldn't you probably but if i needed a receiver. I can't help buy into what's happening with him. Nine targets catches eight of them and these were not all short area balls. He's he's getting open on deep over routes his first catch the game he just. He kicked the butt of the colts zone. Defense like he was a zone coverage beater and what that usually entails as somebody who's crossing the field so it takes them a little bit longer to get into the route but then he's open and he was savvy enough to find open space on a couple of the throws that he got from shawn watson should have had a touchdown in the game. There's a nineteen yard pass. Play something like this where he does a double move. You gets inside leverage on his guy and if watson had thrown it maybe a half second. Sooner it's a touchdown at the goalpost and because watson was slow with it the defensive back broke up the play and he just he. It's not like he's he's fast but he's not the scout. The field that's willfuller. He's small anymore. It's not will fuller right right. So maybe now it's him. And i was very very impressed. And i'm very very encouraged by what i saw with cutie and the schedule is going to be very very tough but the bears just gave up a very very large amount of yards to the to the pass catchers of detroit. I told you man. The bears that they could be totally. I wouldn't say frauds but it might not be that tough of a match matchup because they just there's only been one team where they've shut down good wide receivers and that was the rams every other week they miss your right receivers. Yeah and and earlier this year we were calling their offense frauds but their defense good and it was a flip of that today. Their offense was pretty good until the end. When trubisky fumbled the game away. Dave i do think the bears defense. I don't wanna make it sound like. They're they're actually i think. Ut meetable i think if we're gonna pencil men for a a twelve point pr floor. I thinking get you there all right so strategy is going to give us some other waiver wire names and you tell us if you like cutie. Better than them. Okay t. y. hilton man. I'm gonna have trust issues with ty. I know the last two weeks have been good. This was an amazing game..

"We love the fact that he had all those targets in that he he played a lot. And there's no one else for now that's going to take him off the field in the chargers offense and loved the involvement that he'll have when they're playing from behind which is pretty much every single game that they're acres had one carry in the first half against san francisco. Darrell henderson had nine henderson. Averaged one point nine yards per carry white. Pc for life everybody and then in the second half the rams said okay. Let's see what the kid can do. And he didn't have a ton of carries in the second half. But what he did have were yards and a touchdown and i think we saw the switch. I think we finally saw it. And i'm hoping that we see a lot. More of cam. Akers moving forward and of course we know what to do with that color. We're starting his his beautiful shiny dome Gaming moving ahead here acres is only forty seven percent roster so yeah he'll be one of the most popular guys off the wave. Were talking about him for weeks as gauguin go stash him gogo and no one did it. You know who else story about the little boy. That cried wolf. No no i have. Not what's this is is boy was a shepherd and his job was just to sit up on the hill. The city boy. How old boy. How old is he was like twelve and he'd get and he's got a job and that's a pretty important job super boring. Which is boston and so he would holler wolves so people would come running from the city to defend the sheep just because he was bored and he wanted to see people and finally they just stopped. Listening they stopped coming and then a wolf came and haller. Nobody came in all the sheep. I series with the sheep. I see what saying that Cam akers wolf. He's gonna eat explaining still he's he's a boy who's got an important job. He's shepherd i get it I look i'm hopeful for him. The other guy that we've been saying that you should pick up as deebo samuel and he was fantastic today. So there's another guy that's going to be a hot waiver wire priority so the winners for dave ekeler and cam akers for heath. They were latavius. Murray and rob gronkowski. Let's go to the losers. Mike williams heath he was started in only thirty five percent of leagues. I don't know if i said this yet but this is the second time that the chargers have gone across the country and play a one pm game and both times. Herbert wasn't nearly as good. And mike williams was pretty bad so you can tell me if that means anything to you. They don't have any more cross country. Trips mike williams and jamison crowder. Which one would you rather have. They're both you're two losers crowder and mike williams who would you rather have in our either of them droppable trouble..

"Friend, my Carmen, and it is over. In the bubble. The Portland Trail Blazers outscore the Lakers by five in the fourth quarter. Yes, Lakers win in 1 35 to 1 15 Thiss game There was no run by the Blazers to make it close. There was no well this is the N B. A. Of course we're going to get around. There was no run. Lakers scored 43 points in the first quarter. They were off to the races. LeBron leads the way with 30 Koosman with 18 off the bench. Howard with 13. This was the Akers team that we had expected and hope to see throughout the playoffs. Maybe we're seeing it now. It took him a couple of games to get going, But they were aggressive. The only thing we're watching for them right now, what's going to be the status of the two big players going into Game five and that or Game four rather Anthony Davis, who left the game with back spasms. Damian Lillard getting an Emery on his right knee after he got hurt in the third quarter tonight. So while it's all good news for the Lakers right now, they're dealing with a D. The Blazers trying to stay alive with Damian Lillard with an M R. I does not look good for them. I expect this series to be over one more game Lakers are on to the second round. Yeah, exactly. Finish it off in five. He's obviously damaged goods at this point, and we're just watching sheer domination in the low post time and not imagined a 17 made three point shots. You know, it's one year circle in the A box score and say You'll take that. Ah, and if they'd had any semblance of that game one men what they needed to hit three or four more shots and, you know, we're talking sweep by the fact that you've got the big guys that you've got to contend with, and you're fighting down low against Howard, who's cleaning up the garbage? And obviously Anthony Davis before he departed had a monster game, leaving those three point shooters open. They're doing one Mississippi two Mississippi three Mississippi Before they even need to release the shot almost too much time to think about it. Snip. Yep. Or that's what some cliche would tell on broadcasting school, but an absolutely dominant performance. I mean, you miss 10 free throws Do you give up 115 points and you still win by 20. I mean pillar to post just an absolute ass kicking by the Los Angeles Lakers on Mama Day on. Now, you try to take the energy of those jerseys. You don't wash him and you get him ready for Game five. All they're never going to take him off. They're going to be the mama jerseys the rest of time. That's the rest of the city. I'm gonna wear it all the way through till 2025 never going to take him off. I like that. I was going to do a whole Rick Astley thing there, but I'll leave that for later. We'll have more on Lakers and Portland coming up in a few minutes. But this football story from today is easily the best story. The AP Rankings Top 25 College football came out for the first time and the main thing to look at this is to say, Well, the Pac 12 and Big 10 teams were still in the rankings. Okay, well, technically, yes, but when they start playing if they're not playing, and they're not playing till the spring, they will be out. Of course, the pool of top ranked teams is going to be cut in half because you have about half a college football. It's going to play in the fallen half of college football That's gonna play in the spring. Don't worry about anything like that. Nick Saban today saying, we need to play for the kids. It's not about money. Just everybody just shut up and get ready to play. Alright. You decided you want to play. We know what's for the money. We know it's what it is. We know teams want to win championships. Just go out and play and we'll have a phenomenal college football season because if they play in the fall, they have no choice but to play in the spring. We'll have split national champions. We're going have rankings in the fall rankings in the spring, we'll argue forever who the best team was And it's going to be the most awesome college football season because everybody's gonna have a chance. We have the spring season in the fall season. Hey, I only got to be one out of 52 be. Hey, I got a white got a 1 50 instead of a 118 chance. It's going to be a fantastic season and it's going to just enjoy it. Don't worry about the conference to get ready to play reverse it. Still time for Warren to Ah, listen, everybody else still time for the Pac 12..
2 Kings 19 and Psalm 46, 80, 135
"Today, we revisited part of the story. We I read on Day, two. Oh, six including! HAS ACI response to Kingston Aker ABS threats. We're reminded of how humbly he responded when troubles came as way, and since we've read this story before you probably recall that after this when he's been blessed, and has stockpiled fortunes, and he gets to live an extra fifteen years, his heart Arc's away from God, it becomes prideful doubts God's words and live somewhat airless Lii. One of the things we didn't touch on home. I read this story. A few days ago was the part where God puts a spirit and snacker. That will cause him to hear ally. There are a few noteworthy things about that burst. God is in charge of evil spirits there on a leash, and they have to do what he says and go where he commands that comforting second God himself didn't mislead snacker. Scripture tells us repeatedly that God cannot lie. Bruce Sixteen eight says he's incapable of it. It would be contrary to his character because according to John. Fourteen one of his name's is the truth. Is the truth, but God's certainly does use equal for his own purposes when Romans eight twenty eight says he works all things together for the good of those who love him. Evil is included in that list of all things, the good, the bad and the ugly the truth he speaks, and the rumors other speak. So. He allows snacker up to be misled. If you think that might be an unjust response, try to zoom out and remember how sin. Acura of has been Lee bought your way and his leaders tell the people of Judah that they shouldn't let y'all way. Trick them into trusting him. This is a merciful response based on what's inaccurate. Deserves from God. Isaiah also tells has a that they will win this war without even putting gas in their horses, and he's right before a Syria can fire an aero toward Jerusalem God's Army, an army of one shows up and wins, but it isn't really a balanced fight. The Assyrians are way outnumbered by the angel of the Lord who kills one hundred and eighty, five thousand of them and one night, plus he has the home field advantage since he owns the whole earth and whatnot, then eventually, king inaccurate is assassinated just as God promised. Next! We jumped back into the psalms. There were two verses in Psalm, Forty forty-six that stood out to me in light of what we just read. Burst this reference to Jerusalem in verse five stood out. It says God is within her. She shall not be moved. God will help her. When morning dawns, this is certainly what played out over the course of the night. When the angel of the Lord showed up and won the battle for them while they were sleeping when morning dawned, they laid eyes on God's victory. The second verse I loved is the most famous one in this chapter Burston be still and know that I am God. One of the things we've seen repeated as you've been in Isaiah lately. Is this idea of quietness and rest and trust? This stillness fits right in with that, doesn't it? In Psalm Eighty the corporate cry is for God to save them and restore them. In this song Israel knows its identity and echoes it back to the God. Who gave them that identity to begin with? I love this imagery in verses eight nine? It says you brought a vine out of Egypt that vine reference to Israel the people the ones he rescued from Egypt. Then it continues saying you drove out. The nation's and planted it. You cleared the ground for it. This is a reference to Israel the place God drove out the Canaanites and planted them there, and now they've been burned up cut down plucked up and they ask God to restore them and promised to praise him for it. Someone thirty five is where my God showed up today. I really love this psalm. I went through it and circled all the action verbs where God is the subject and here's everything. God does in this chapter. Chose Jacob in Israel. Does whatever He pleases, he makes the clouds rise. It makes lightening brings forth the wind. You struck down. The Egyptians is sent. Signs wonders you struck down many nations. He killed mighty kings, then gave their land to Israel he will vindicate his people. You will have compassion on his servants E, Doyle's in Jerusalem.

What The NBA’s New Salary Cap Projection Means For 2020 Free Agency
"It gets closed the trade deadline headline then you have GM sweating and Al and the GM's that really need to make a trade for whatever reasons. Those of the deals that may slip under the radar that may be the difference between a team really producing. NTN`Er team really not producing a right next to the trade deadline. Those the ones I I really wanna see because those the ones that are executed in haste there not couple cited some those have a tendency to be more one sided than any other traits that we see so. I'm looking forward to that a whole week. Well this whole week when it concerns the NBA trade deadline A lot of things going on right now with the rumors and all the stuff. That's out there. One thing I do want to tell fans out there before we head on out is that the I know. There's a lot of things that are being set out there from these experts from these journalists from these podcasts that you're listening to out there as far as NBA hardcore fans are concerned. One of the things you're hearing is bird rights pertaining bird rights. Oh this guy doesn't have a big rides. Oh the the team will get his bird rights. I WANNA make sure everybody understands. What are bird rights at Burger is basically it stands from? Yes Larry Bird dealing with the contract situation. -Tuation the Boston Celtics longtime ago. Basically it's something that's now done on. The collective bargaining agreement and also with the players and owners has been formally set up bird bird rights according to go ahead with sports lingo dot com user exact termination. Here's someone to quote them. Bird rights is a term used to describe a tactic an NBA free free agency or trading or trading where a team is allowed to exceed the salary cap at the maximum salary in order to sign one of their own players. That's something that a Lotta people need understand what it concerns the lingo. That's going on right now because you're going to hear a lot about those two words bird rights you know if they trade a player and the the team can still retain the bird rights or if they can't because if they can't that makes a lot of difference especially those tax strap teams those those that are over or close to the tax if they cannot retain these players if they don't have their bird rights so that's something very important key to listen to down the road over the next next few days whether team is going to trade for a player that they can keep their bird rise because it it helps these teams for the long term if they want to go ahead and resign nineties players with Saudi. I JUST WANNA go ahead give heads up because I hear all this bird writes this bird rights at at nobis explaining really what bird rights are player has asked to stay with the team for three years in order to earn his bird rights in bird. Ruts don't do anything. Help team avoid luxury taxes. But what they they do. is they allow an exemption so that they can basically pay the guy whatever they want they allow them to go over the CAP. It doesn't prevent them from making taxes. They can go over the cap even go into a luxury tax situation. But it still doesn't prevent them from pain a luxury tax. So t Michael Akers. For example the Lakers signed demarcus cousins to a one year deal if they signed him to a two year deal next year next summer then he would be a three year contract contract and at the end of that contract they would have his bird rights they could then sign him to whatever amount they want regardless of where they how over the CAP. The cap gap doesn't even matter to them it would put them into luxury tax of the gave him a big contract and they still have to pay the luxury tax but they would be able to go ahead and sign him. No matter are

MNF Recap Packers Vikings; Beastmode returns
"The packers certainly did not blow the doors off the Vikings Aaron Rodgers and company. They you know. They struggled for large portions of this game on offense against a good vikings demon in a very difficult place to play. But I think the story of this game really will be what a massive egg. The Vikings Kings laid an Wessel. Start with you I know you and I have had our disagreements with Kirk cousins and the Vikings were blamed should be assessed when the vikings go wrong and this does not make me the winner that argument you're right and everything he said it was all right. Dan is declared the winner. Now that is that is not true because a lot of people people didn't show up in this game it's certainly not kirk cousins either seven first downs for Minnesota and four quarters the fewest home game by this organization since Nineteen seventy-one Avenue. One Keith. Hands US was a junior at Clarkston high school at that time senior clocks down high. The man's grandfather. Wes speak to it. Come on Kirk cousins. Put the team on your back when they need you. Well like I said on Thursday you and I see more IDA. I'd on this than than it seems like. I don't care what his record is on Monday night football that is immaterial it like somehow nine Monday night games are better than than Sunday games. I might have been true in one thousand nine hundred three three. I don't think that's been true lately. Thirdly we've seen this before he didn't come up. When the redskins needed a late season victory he didn't come up big when the Vikings of two thousand eighteen needed a late season victory and he didn't come up big tonight and like you said the blame can be assessed to a running game? That didn't exist. An offensive line that got worked over by the packers Akers front seven a defense that got some turnovers but also allowed one hundred and fifty yards to Aaron Jones. A coach who punted down thirteen with three and a half minute or four minutes left in the game. There's a lot of blame to go around but I you cannot escape. The Kurt cousins led an offense that had seven first downs. And like you said since one thousand nine hundred seventy. One was the last time that happened in Vikings home game. This is one of the most disappointing performances. Any team is head all

Suspend, disbelief: Parliament and Brexit
"Pressure is rising in the battle between britain's prime minister boris johnson and his opponents in parliament among the british people and even in his own conservative party today. The popular head of its scottish branch ruth davidson announced her resignation yesterday. Mr johnson sparked outrage by announcing suspension of parliament for five weeks. The closure drastically shortens the time lawmakers could use to try to stop britain leaving the european union without a deal on october. The thirty first the response from opposition politicians was furious. I think today will go down in history as the u._k. Democracy died pharmacist doing <music>. Ceuta smashing crab on democracy not forced through no deal exit from the european union last night. Thousands of people gathered outside parliament to protest against what many described as a coup isn't even elected just warns it by by some cross the ozorio members in his abusing all democracy worshiping palmdale so him and his rich friends can push through bricks disgrace who he's using a system system of parliamentary power to ultimately ride free brexit and i think that's the president the prime minister claimed this was a normal way for a new government to behave before setting out its plans for the country in a speech given by the queen but many think the circumstances are different this time. I think what boris johnson is doing in suspending parliament is legal and the constitutional but it is clearly also cynically aimed at shortening anytime that m._p.'s might have to try to do something to stop an ideal brexit on on october thirty first. Tom pete briggs editor. He's suspending parliament for an unusually long time. <hes> and i think the only reason for doing that is to minimize is the chances that m._p.'s have of legislating or finding some other means to stop britain crushing out on october thirty first. If it weren't hamstrung by this how would parliament. I want to go about doing that. Peace plan is to try and pass legislation which after all is monroe <hes> they did something similar in march when they passed whilst legislation against theresa may's wishes to oscar to seek an extension of the brexit deadline and they will try and do this again starting next week but how would that play out in practice. It's difficult to predict what will happen in in the house of commons but the speaker john berko is clearly very much on the side of m._p.'s who wants want to be given the chance to stop an ideal brexit. He believes an m._p. Should have say before. Britain leaves the european union so i think what will what he's likely to happen is that he will commit an emergency debate. The emergency debate will be used to try to craft a bill that will the demand that boris johnson brussels to seek more time whether there is sufficient parliamentary time to pass that bill into law is is an open in question it could pass the commons but it also has to post the lord's and there are very few sitting days in which this can happen so i think it will be a race against time to get this legislation through a race against time made radically worse by by suspending parliament in the first place i mean we've talked before about how much mr johnson may or may not actually want to crash out with an ideal you you. You've said it might just be a negotiating tactic to to to look tough yet. This looks like he just simply wants it now. I think he's doing things he wants is to send a message to brussels and other capitals that n._a._t._o. Brexit is a real possibility and that he is going to do his up based to stop m._p.'s m._p.'s including m._p.'s from his own party from frustrating it. He also wants to send a signal to akers of the of nigel rogers brexit party that he agrees with them and he's doing his best to deliver what farraj calls clean brexit what other people call nato brexit whether he really wants a nato brexit i think is not quite mike clip because he's always said that he prefer he would prefer to leave with a deal but given the time constraint it look increasingly likely that it could end up being a native brexit exit to do you think that he has made good faith efforts to try to get a deal struck i think when you went to berlin and paris to meet leaders and then met the began the group of seven summit in in biarritz they were impressed with the view that he genuinely wants to try to sort a compromise that would pass parliament against that they think his dimond which is to remove completely the backstop that is designed to prevent there ever being a hard border owed with ireland is

The number of teenagers using Facebook that's been on the decline for years. They've migrated to Snapchat Instagram and about twenty million of them are over on house party a live video app where people drop in on each other and chat or leave video messages, and they can hang out with up to eight people at a time. I know the name house party sounds like kids doing I don't even want to know what on video, but actually co founder and chief operating officers Seamus Donnie, told me she wants house party to be for real personal, connections, and empathy literally no filters, you friend, a group of people ahead of time. And when you open the app, it actually notifies them that you're there, and you're ready to have a conversation. And so it sort of takes the emotional hurdles out of actually video chatting with somebody. Why video there obviously, inherent risks and interacting live on video. Not to mention, you know, just. Bandwith and appearance issues. You know, talk to us about the value of video as a communication tool. That's at the heart of the empathy and how we do that you say appearance like I want people to be proud of. You know, I woke up this way. Right. And if the tool is just about you, and the people you care about you shouldn't need filters. Right. You shouldn't be trying to project yourself as content. You should just be there to have like affirmation from a qualitative perspective, not validation by numbers. And I really hope that like we have a generation grows up knowing the right reaction to sadness, not just the right emoji. So talk to me about how that's reflected in the product design.

What's holding back Russia's economy?
"Put that into perspective that is slightly smaller than the economy of the state of Texas and about the size of New York state's economy. California's economy more than fifty percent bigger than the Russian economy. And in a lot of ways, it seems like Russia's economy should be a lot bigger than this, especially given some of its natural resources. Russia is one of the. Top three producers of oil in the world. It's one of the biggest producers of natural gas and it has huge reserves of nickel, aluminum, palladium, yes, rush again, be Biegel. Russia should be Sergei Alica Shanka is an economist with the Brookings Institution. He also served as the deputy chair of Russia's central Bank in the nineties and circuses to understand where Russia's economy is now, you're actually have to go back to the nineties Cold War had distended. It was a new chapter for Russia's economy. The transition from plan centralized socialist economy to a more open economy was wrenching in chaotic and full of cronyism and corruption. But eventually companies from all over the world did start coming into Russia, like Pepsi Dannon, BP, McDonald's, and starting row nineteen ninety nine. The Russian economy also started benefiting from oil prices which started going up and up and up and Russia's economy followed. This was just as a young ambitious official name. Vladimir Putin became the prime minister. The beginning of the twentieth century was maybe the best of the most successful period old Soviet Russia, economic history between nineteen ninety and two thousand eight Russia's economy tripled in size, and then the global financial crash happened Russia's economy tanked, and it's bounced around a lot since then. Now the Russian economy though is about the same size as it was a decade ago, did that's may be the most painful side of the story that Russian economy lost momentum. This momentum. Meanwhile countries like the US, Germany and China have recovered and grown since then. So what happened to Russia? Sergei says there are three major obstacles that have held Russia back from the global economic party. Of course, the major problem for the Russian economy was they declined oil. Prices. Oil is Russia's biggest industry by a mile. It's the government's biggest source of revenue. So when oil prices fell during the financial crash from a high of more than one hundred, four. Eighty seven dollars a barrel to about thirty dollars a barrel. It devastated Russia's economy. An oil prices have fluctuated a lot in the time since and they are pretty high right now, but selling oil has gotten more complicated for Russia which brings us to the second reason that Sergei says that Russia's economy has stalled, wisdom, sanctions below, can access to financial markets and imposing something on foreign direct investment going to Russia western sanctions. These were put in place in two thousand fourteen after Russia invaded Ukraine. The US and other western nations tried to get Russia to pull out of Ukraine by blocking it from doing business with many foreign companies. Putin refused to negotiate the sanction state in place for the last four years. Russia has been cut off from a lot of foreign trade and investment investment. These, like if you'll for your car, if you have fuel, you may dry. Your engine will walk. If you have no investment, economic will grow. But circa says the biggest thing holding back. Russia's economy is not oil prices or even sanctions. It's something a lot closer to home elect of pro property right protection, a lack of proper property right protections. Sergei says this makes doing business in Russia, very uncertain. Even for Russians, you might have thriving business doing really well and making lots of sales, and the state could just take it or someone with connections could just take it and there's not that much you can do. So it's it's worries about corruption that it's actually these corruption is only
