"Hey all right. So the panthers come off of a Ah game against the really sad Nfc north team and they're going to play another sad have seen team. It's going to be fun. I the. Vikings are another one of those teams. That really fucking puzzled me. Because like i feel like there should be a lot better than they are literally. Anything can happen in this game. I will not be surprised with any result. The vikings yeah. They're so tough because for one they've been good for a few years and it's very hard to get out of your head. When are no longer good. But then they started one in five and they lost to like they all real bad and a few of those games. According to the falcons at killed by falcons and then they won three in a row including against packers says like oh maybe they just took some time to figure it out and then they lost to the cowboys. So i they are an enigma. To put it nicely. That's i mean per the kirk. Cousins is is the face of that franchise if that makes sense like the vikings in a nutshell. Yeah yeah and. I mean it's one thing we we don't know what's going to happen because i mean they might be without adam phelan. Yeah i match. That changes the game dramatically because they have a much better chance of winning than if he doesn't and for those of you who don't know he is on the covid nineteen list deposited in. It's like a positive test cova actor. He's probably gonna play sunday like because he tested positive. So and Yes have kirk cousins. And then there's somebody else's out too but yeah we talked about two of their players already kirk cousins among leaders and turnovers and just jefferson along the league leaders in being good at wide receiver. So alvin cook to albuquerque. Yes even really good running back probably arguably the best running back in the nfl. Without chris mccaffrey playing most of the season. i just. it's so hard because they should be good on paper because even out feeling like they have a number one wide receiver..

"What do you make of this entire situation? What did you make of back and forth over the weekend between Zimmer, and then the agent and then Kennedy Paula Malu got thrown in there, and then the agent fired back on that then Zimmer told PA yesterday. Well, I never said he was common people. He was coming because he told somebody I knew he was showing up mostly probably because of the service time deal. In your reporting and the people you're talking to the last couple of days. What is going on with this situation? Is it as is there? A schism as has been reported as Dalvin annoyed. Are they wide apart on a contract extension? Where do we stand on all things Alvin Cook, related? I I don't think Delvin is as some of this negotiation right I mean he's trying to get the best deal he can. The Vikings are trying to. Pay Him at a rate that still works under their structure, which is changing because of all of this stuff to the salary cap could go down after this year, so some of it is going to go station, but I. don't get the sense from him that this is leading a lot of animosity or anything like that. He's a very good relationship with the team. Relationship with the front office with coaches and teammates Mike Zimmer. I think said. Yesterday, he's GonNa. Make him a captain this year. You think that'll buy them off for a couple of mill. You think that will. Get the number down wearing the see. That didn't feel a little bit like a An extra little wiener in the deal to me when he said I kinda thought okay I don't know that that's going to get you that much. Nice gesture. Yeah, yeah it them how to work it. The I never said the thing you all heard me say piece of that was been. Yeah kind of make. It very brand, but yeah he. He knows how to work it with players so. mean, maybe maybe that'll help. Get them a little bit, but I don't get the sense that this is like. They're at at each other's throats or anything like that I. Think this still will get done. I think the fact now. A little more room to work with a push right direction I have not gotten the sense that. They are as far apart as it would. Maybe had seen the cook was going to be here. Because of the way, this is set up. He needed to come in, so he can get the free agency next year and I think the Vikings are willing to pay him. It's just a question of how it's all structured and now. Maybe they have a little more room. Maybe that's the thing that allows them to put more guaranteed money. Because what I had heard earlier in the summer was. Yeah, they're. They're willing to get too close to where he wants to be. There's a lot of incentives in it, so maybe this is the thing that. That it helps. Push it over the edge. I still think they want to get it done I think they wanna pay him, and it's just a matter of probably getting. It all figured out I I..

"I Guess Greg comes down to do. They want to invest in a running back when we keep on seeing that, these investments haven't quite worked out around the league when you get into businesses superstar at that position. Yeah I think they'd like to pay him, but he has some of the red flags that you worry about in terms of his. Injury history. He also has a really good backup I. Think I just think it's a normal time to for a player to hold out, so look what this happens every year. It's not surprising news the thing that's different this year that people might not be aware of. Is that the new collective bargaining agreement really? Put some rules that makes it harder to hold out. And if you don't show up for camp. You start losing in accrued season. If, if you just don't show up for camp now, I think it's going GonNa be up to the team. If you can figure out a contract that doesn't really matter. You don't need that crude season, but there are some new rules. You also can get find much more. It's mandatory. That's if you're on a second contract, so that doesn't apply to cook. But that was one of those little wrinkles in this new CBA that like if Alvin Cook doesn't show up in theory he loses. Accrued season towards free agency right away if they don't come to a new contract agreement, yeah, also of undersold aspect of the new. CBA because I don't really recall hearing about that. Until this issue popped up and it should certainly curb some of the you know. Kind of you know some of the stuff. We've seen internal holdouts. You know going going deep into the season or something on. If you don't think there's a hope of a contract, the Vikings have. In the past signed guys like exurbia roads and digs and efforts, Everson Griffen and Lindvall Joseph to contracts like the day before training camp. And Courtney Cronin from ESPN also reported that the actual asking price seems to be closer to about thirteen million per year when it was originally noted that was around sixteen. which is way up there, so you don't know we'll see what happens with that, but maybe part of it is cook having to have a dose of reality in terms of what he can ask per year. And we talked about Derrick Henry last week. Other guy that wants a long term deal. With Paul Koharski when we did our tight titans deep dive. and. Henry wanting superstar money's top because he's not a true three down back while Cook is, Cook is a guy that not only is he stud-? running the ball, but last season he was targeted in that offense sixty three times yet. Fifty three catches averaged almost ten yards a catch. I mean he's. He's kind of do it. All Guy, but like Greg, said there's some red flags there with his injury, history, and We'll see how the vikings play this, but Yeah, this is all very normal. It's always nice to have some sense of normalcy on the League at just just on twitter, so that like underhill. Covers the saints does a great job He tweeted article that Jared Cook a lot of talking around the Saints Jared. Cook is going to be unleashed as a monster this year and I just put up the trope signals, because like it's good to have the trope alert back. Yeah, this time of year, which is something that's been wiped out mostly because we're not.

‘You Have To Be Able To Throw The Ball’: Vikings’ Adam Thielen Frustrated After Loss To Bears

"Finally in the News Adam the'll and has thoughts on the Vikings kings offense after Minnesota no showed on offense against the mighty bears defense Thalen expressed some frustration ration- I'm not sure if it was with the offense of philosophy or the guy who's supposed to be throwing the ball. Let's listen it well. I think I think that's probably what's frustrating. Straight thing is is we knew that was going to happen at some point. At some point you're not run the ball for one hundred eighty even with the best running back and that's when you have to be able to throw the ball you have to be able to make place have to be able to hit the ball at the you have to do that because otherwise it's too easy for changes not Evan and Russia quarterback so we have to be we have to be able to run the ball and pass misleading cannot be won a national. It's just too easy founder. It's odd to see Minnesota struggling at at this level on ovens West. You may remember shortly before the season started. I was very high in their offense thought they could really maybe it'd be a top OP five top three number one but it's all gone totally to hell and the one thing that has really jumped out to me. That's his surprised me is that the one you could always count on kirk cousins offense was he was going to put up numbers and they were his team will move the football that is what's disappeared here and that's been to me the most surprising thing that you add Alvin Cook into the mix and we talked about it on Sunday. The offensive line obviously has issues but that they would be this inept. I just did not see this coming at all. It's fascinating to me. Cousins is a rhythm passer and he hasn't been in rhythm really since last October and I think if you read between the lines with Adam feeling he at least he may be other players at the vikings have some issues with kirk cousins right now and maybe he's not maybe it's that he's not pulling the trigger when the passes are there any cousins defense. It's not often that the past is are there because his offense of line the mixture of that offensive line that system kirk cousins isn't working yet. It's not a good thing when dealing in that same interview was kind of asked what's different this year with you guys you. You know not getting as much separation and the most telling thing is he immediately said that's not what I see. I mean he's he's saying he's opened and yeah cousins has been under under pressure. There's a good article in the athletic yesterday about it hasn't been extreme and watching that game there were many plays where he did have time and there are deep throws you would think to to give a shot to dig deal and they did try a couple of hit one and he's instead of checking the ball down and I think that's the frustration Gratien in when you have Mike Zimmer on Monday saying the same thing. You've got to pull the trigger when you're when you're talking about your quarterback that way it's I don't know there's bubbled over frustration and there probably probably is in effect that you can't really measure scientifically on most quarterbacks outside of the most mentally tough that if you've been damaged and battered and hurt for a season plus behind a line you lose some trust for them. We've seen younger quarterbacks even earlier this year after a game or two of that not act the way you'd expect them to Aaron Rodgers do it in the last couple couple years you develop bad habits and absolutely there's this one play where they do the boot action and cousins rolls out to his right and he had there's no one within twenty yards of him at that time and he immediately like fires fastball over the middle to his running back. I think it was. Cj Ham who was one yard pass the line of scrimmage and he did it like right away and that's the type of play where you just it drives you crazy. I think if you're never CJ HAMAS open though you've got to get the ball to him get it to them in space and watch the magic. That's that's the philosophy. The football coaches the world over believe. That's what's happening in the

"For <unk> eleven or thirteen games this year which is that's pretty insane so rudd say that some storylines i'm watching our vikings <unk> offensive distribution between the wrong game pass game after the new o._c. Oh see came in last year. They definitely turned to become more running style offense so definitely something i wanna watch they're also the role of alexander madison <unk> talk-up mass in quite a bit took him third round. Everyone thought it was reach. It could just be deptford <unk> but it may be eh some <unk>. Murray was years past so he could exist for the purpose of hurting alvin cook but also just making sure dowden cook doesn't get hurt definitely makes sense to try to moderates touches of these early with alvin <unk> there so but he came out logical end of the year and and was very strong so that's something good for cook so next. Let's talk about the ravens versus dolphins what here like obviously for the football hideout. We wanna watch but for fancy. There's definitely some intriguing storylines there. Yeah i think i mean obviously you know today. They announced kenyan drake was number. One of the deaf charts caleb lodges number two. I mean i think that's just because he's the veteran versus the younger player i think they both i still think kenyan drake has more talent than balaj. <hes> is question of staying staying healthy <hes>. He's got to prove that you know this is his job to lose and in he needs to go out. Oh but the problem is you're going up against one of the better run defenses in the baltimore ravens so <hes> that's gonna make it tough for them. I think lamar jackson is going to go lake like crazy against this team from defensive standpoint or offensive standpoint. Normally i don't have lamar jackson in any league sev one and that's a league were the passing touchdowns are only three points but the rushing touchdown wow so that changes things a lot and that's why i have you menelik. That's the only reason so you know it's it's a big deal so if he runs for two touchdowns at equivalent of four passing touchdown so definitely <hes> having been going to start him this week over jared goff <hes> but aficionado but you know that's you know but that's it. I mean even if you know if russia's for one hundred yards in two touchdowns and throws for one hundred twenty in mark ingram. Just you know the the run game controls the game. I think this is a blow out in a low scoring game..

"And I do think that can be an offense that really pleased Alvin cook strength. So. Where do you have him right now in your projections? Actually, let's see here. I have cook coming in at holding up as talking to you right now. So place a music in the back of two hundred sixty four carries just under twelve hundred yards. Fifty four catches for one yards that works out to Rb twelve in the projection. So right in that, you know, David Johnson Joe mix and for net Nick job sort of range. Devante freeman. That's that's about rifles. Yeah. I mean, I think that's that's higher. The maybe they know a you might think about the running back. If you would just ranking them, you know, in terms of broader fantasy football production off the top of your head. I don't think could be that high. But I mean, I absolutely see that he can have that role offense if things break, right? And you mentioned actually someone wants to talk about who was Leonard for net. How do you feel about the Jags and other teams who were low in terms of scoring last season? Are you other particular teams that your high on terms of expecting them to improve? And are there any players who you think are uniquely positioned to benefit from you know, any. Pop possible positive aggression towards the mean. Yeah, I definitely think we should see more scoring from the cardinals and Jags again just like we talked about with the chiefs earlier. It's kind of the opposite. Right. If you look at the offenses that have struggled at have been under one and a half touchdowns per game over the past decade, you see a pretty nice leap of across the board without getting too into the numbers. You know, they they leave pretty significantly. So that suggests that the cardinals and Jag should be better. And it makes sense, right? What are the odds that you're going to be at the bottom of the NFL scoring years? You just don't see that. I'll also a big big scheme change for the cardinals offensively coming and it could be a quarterback change there too. Depending on what they do with that. I pick the Jags bring in Nick foles who do have some reservations. But you know, they want to run the ball. And he's certainly upgrade on what they had last season..

"But I think he's had some issues to they haven't used Alvin cook enough not like her cousins played well, but Kirk cousins also missed guys wide open like feeling in the end zone a couple of times. Yeah. In minnesota. Don't forget about this play guys down six to nothing with less than six minutes left in the game on fourth and nine. They kicked a field goal to cut it to three kick was blocked game was over right there. He got to go for that one day. They correctly went for it down inside. I think inside the five yard line on the previous possession. Did not get the touchdown. They should have gone forward. Again, they kick a field goal game over. Well. They also got a penalty that wasn't called. I mean, it was called the flyers picked up. I don't understand what happens that should have been fifteen yet. I can't disagree with that. I'm very I just disagree with the field goal. I disagree with the field goal. But I agree with you on that. Yeah. I'm indifferent. On the field goal there. If it were if it were seven because they'd still need to touch that outfield and Ozzy go for it. But because it was six, and it's not like Seattle's defending remember there hasn't been a touchdown to that point. Seattle's defense hadn't offense hadn't done much in terms of the second half. Obviously, they moved the ball in the first half in at some weird things happen. I don't know four thousand nine I'm in that sort of no man's land. Right there Seattle playing very well right now. And if they win on Sunday, they do clinch a playoff berth very likely that they're going to be the number five seed the NFC playoffs potentially a first round match up with the Dallas Cowboys. Ooh. Ooh. Cowboys would get home-field though. Yeah. It'd be in Dallas as the Dallas is the NFC east winter. Okay. So let's look ahead to this week. We have a expanded schedule.

"Right. The right things you show. He's a look back. But it's you have to look at the right things. Dowden. Cook is a really interesting play this week, Mike because for actors one people are still a little bit nervous. Right. I mean, he has been injured quite a bit this year. He's missed several. Games. He came back before the by and had that wonderful seventy plus yard run and looked great with fourteen fantasy points, which is somebody who rostered him and was waiting all that time to get them back. I was thrilled with them. But we don't know that he's one hundred percent. We think he's close to it. But latavius Murray may not go away and the players who have allowed. I believe the fewest points to opposing running backs and fantasy football this season. I'm sorry there top four but still up until last week. I think they were like right there closer to number one. Like beside. You know, the the lions went crazy last week against them. But like, it's been a stout defence. What I should say. Yeah. No doubt. And. Yeah. Just to touch on that six out of the nine running backs unit said if face the bears to finish twentieth. They're worse. But the three exceptions to that have come during their past five weeks or during the past five weeks. So yeah, they've fallen off a little bit. Maybe that's good news for Alvin cook. But I mean, let's talk a little bit more about his usage. I mean, first of all, yeah, he played and played a lot in that last game. He's had a buy week. We would hope that his playing time would just increase or at least stay the same. But if you kind of dive into a little bit he's averaging fifteen point zero carries in three point seven five targets per game in eight career games and feel he left two of them injured two of the eighty left injured, and he was limited to twenty-five snaps in his last game. He's still at almost twenty looks a game despite you know, it's yeah, it's a small sample. But when he's out there they use him a ton last game. Ten carries four targets on those twenty five snaps. They can't help themselves. If he's active there like we need him on the field. We're gonna give them a lot of work. And I know a lot of his production last game came on that one run. But that's what he does. He's an explosive playmaker. He's going to deliver some plays like that. So I'm a big fan in his role as a pass catcher should just angry I increase going forward. So by the way, I could have read the stat Kyle had that stat that is looked up right here on the sheet. Look a little bit of diligence on my part would have had the fourth fewest running back points per game allowed. That's a false start on my end right there. But we just to put a bow on where we haven't ranked. We haven't fifteenth and sixteenth respectively. This was actually a weird week Mike because as much as there are there are sixteen on a by which makes you think like it's going to be difficult to find good options. I actually felt like the fan of like one to twenty for running backs was pretty strong this week relative to some recent weeks that we have had that's because of the sixteen on a by. I mean, the jets the bills they have been also relevant. The dolphins have been less fantasy relevant. It's just been a little bit more. So it's it's if you were to pick sixteen to be on a by this might not be bad six to collect here for those sixteen in total. Devin, cook ranked fifteenth interesting players this week. I hope it gets back on track. Because I certainly I am desperate in the war room leak. I will take any points that can be handed my way in the war room lead.

"Flex position where you're so thin and trust me, my warm league team is a disaster right now. So I'm just telling you it may be what we are forced to deal with. And that's about as far as I would go with Alvin cook. I just nervous I'm nervous for even if he plays counting on him. And then in playing eight snaps and getting five carries for twenty one yards. And then like after the game the Vikings might be like, we're really encouraged by being better -actly, which is acting right? They just may not be true for fantasy. Exactly the takeaway from all, right? And instead of maybe twenty touches does Murray get sixteen or fifteen ice game. Which by the way, I'd rather have Murray for fifteen against the lions then cook for six or seven here's to find you among the reasons why they may lean on the run game in this one is because Stefan digs all of a sudden shows up on the injury report. Right. And if you look at last week's game, there is a place where he took a big hit and came out of the game and and a rib injury. So we've talked about rib injury before whether they haven't specified, but whether it's a bruise crack cartilage injury, any of these things are problematic not just because of contact the potentially take during game, but just for the player to be able to run to stretch to be able to reach. I mean things that you typically have to do as receiver not at all in practice yesterday. Obviously wanna see he's able to do anything before the week is out. But again, I would start planning as if you may not have Stefan digs again, looking at the fact that if he cannot play because. Because of its to painful, or whatever the reason they have a bye next week. So this does sort of factor in there. This is not sometimes you see is where the flag shack is running backs and so forth, but again for a receiver that doesn't really help you especially I we don't know exactly. Where in the ribcage injury is. But it's not just the contact. It's the movement. It's the running hard. It's all of those things that can make a rib injury limiting for player like this, Stefan. Is it your ass rotation? I'm trying to read between the lines here a little bit. But is it your ass rotation that because of the nature of this injury because they have the by next week? And because the Vikings are really concerned about Daniel's Detroit lines that like despite being divisional rival. Here's a team that just gave up on golden Tate. Here's a team that's been disappointing all year long under I head coach first year head coach Matt Patricia that has caused pain and people like Daniel is at your ass rotation that basically we don't need Stefan digs to beat the lions. Is that is that sort of what you're saying here? Feels like if I'm reading between the lines here that. At that Daniels team really just has no shot in this one. I think that that is yours. I'm not going to quite go there Daniels out how you read. Now, it's not totally how I read it. I understand what you're saying. But you've got to trust the process. You know, what I mean, what is the process in Detroit. I don't know. Is it do you think that do you think the the the reason that the lions have struggled this year's because they're colorblind? We you know, what I just your excuse. I just I'm just trying to figure it out that might just be Rory. Okay. I'm not sure. But I'm not totally. I'll ask though, I'll see if I can get the PR on the phone does anybody know the differences between an adaptation in assertion. No, I certainly don't fixated on that. Anyways, we're way off track here. So what I do. That's my that's the fundings is at least in some jeopardy of missing out on this game on Sunday. The Vikings have some wide receiver depth acquire will Aljic Robinson has caught three touchdown so far this year. So we do have some potential players that could pop up onto the radar put..

And if you land in the stars that wouldn't work geographically, but maybe I got the phrase wrong either way. I understand what he's trying to do. He seems to be a little overly optimistic. Okay. Jarvis Landry this is Chris card. I'm willing to challenge. They paid you a lot of money. I'm willing to bet some of that money. How many games you guys scored you'll score more than we have people on this set. All right. We got three people on this. I guarantee you won't score forty points. Three times loan averages. Call me hit me. I know you got money, so I know you can depart from that. So let's do that. Do this, do it. Number eighty. Let's coat. Okay. I like that. And finally, Kirk cousins, enjoying his new home with the Vikings. Cousin says, he's been welcomed by Minnesota and added that he's been accepted and given permission to lead Chris, how much different will the Vikings offense. Look with Kirk cousins. It's not gonna look that much different than than what we've seen the normal football fan. They won't build it till the difference. I'll build tell the difference because I know that won't be a restriction on the playbook. There won't be a harness in a noose around the quarterback. I mean, to restrain them from doing certain types of thing because it's overall ability and the leadership thing becomes very important. They don't have a lot of high profile in. Vigils on offense. Offensive line is being rebuilt and is the weakest part of their team. Their skilled guys are just down earth, middle round draft, pick Stefan digs not high maintenance. Phelan is the Minnesota product as can be both of them very, very successful at what they do. We know the running back injured last year, Alvin cook coming back in your number two. So they need his leadership and they gave that to him when they sign them..

"Oh back to the mc fantasy football podcast and the i mean we kind of went through my opinions on different ways you get through your fancy draft coming up in the fall now we're going to be going over some of our favorite running backs and those looking to have a comeback season this coming season i mean those who are maybe coming back off injury or those who didn't kind of pop the way we want them to pop last year i mean we have obviously a rookie who didn't really get to see that much dalvand cook i think he's going to be a great little talent because i mean coming out of the four state he he's explosive i mean initially with that especially with that vikings offense i've offense is pretty dynamic i mean you like the fact couth kirk cousins now and then you got the kind of tool head quarterbacks i mean do running backs now with with latavius mary and with with alvin cook you gotta like the fact that i mean drafting jaffe vikings are going to be pretty fun this year you got you got obviously stuff on digs and and they're big tide engines and rudolf that's tied in go by last segment that's titan to bic early i like rudolph he gets in the end zone but he's going to be said you blanket for kirk cousins specially in his first season with the vikings civil there just route akal rudolph for the vikings is gonna be a nice it'd be a nice little pickup i might think about him for my draft kind of mark that down the middle memory bank they're coming around for the draft way and i think like four or five months away.

"Right back to the gsm see sports so far today we've talked about march madness civically yesterday's games which was thursdays and we recap thursdays nba games a lot of basketball starting off but for this segment we're going to be moving it over back to the nfl aren't going to be talking about the teams who signed veteran quarterbacks and how that affects the players in the draft arentz we'll be doing that pretty much talk about anything else that comes to mind as far as quarterbacks and the draft go so let's get into it all right so you got kirk cousins now going to minnesota obviously officially signed and i mean with kirk cousins and minnesota does that make them super bowl contenders i think it does all right i think right now minnesota's in that little cream of the crop with philly new orleans and allay almost wanted to say saint lucia but no got remember they play an alleged so yeah that puts him in that position there okay kirk cousins isn't a top five quarterback i think he's probably barely at top ten quarterback but he's a quarterback that's not really going to hurt you and he's going to do more good than he ever does bat right with the last few years with washington he didn't really have too many weapons and i think we can all agree on that never really too much they're only think i dunno just with him it's kind of weird they never really put enough around him for him to succeed enough and he's still put big numbers too so i think now with the vikings i mean he's going to be thrown into adam the'll in going to be throwing it's just font digs who else he's got out there he's got dumped alvin cook he's got the latavius murray who who's going to be rescre restructuring his contract so he can become a free agent after two thousand eighteen so we probably won't be there long but i understand murray doing that because the fact that cook is going to be the guy there and then you gotta top defense in the league right there all right this is probably the best team causes ever played on just comparing to all the washing teams he played for year after year.
