"alvin cook" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today Podcast

"I'm trying to think this argument out on the air. It's not really working so well that even in that example you just brought up the josh jacobs one right because i i consider him the biggest to me he was the number one dead zone guy had no interest in him. At all this season. I know an injury has happened but didn't really look like it was going to surface into a great role even before that. But for that example. You pick up eight and barbara and you're not scoring that much less with barber. In fact you scored lower with. Barks davis. I understand but and to barbara was terrible. Sure there's going to be. You're not losing much bye week to was davidson gaskin. Amazing to for the difference. No think davis had seven catches or was that week. Three davis had a lot of catches. I think that was the week two game. They both have had twelve or thirteen catches this year. So you're giving that. Let's say here's what i'd say. I did draft some dead zone running backs not exclusively sell targeted running backs. Obviously i two rows where targeted running backs. I have plenty of good wide receivers. I didn't need to just take wide receivers in rounds. Three four five. Six seven to get my breakout wide receivers. I have some of them. But i was able to do both basically get a little bit of running back and still have plenty of good wide receivers and i don't think that's impossible here. I'm not. I'm not even trying to say that. That's the only route get breakout receivers. I just think you wanna take more. And more swings receivers. You candidate those breakouts. Many as you can and what. You're losing out on is really. Just these guys like davis jacobson. Gaskin don't really do much and make much of an impact for you You know bottom line was it has been a pretty crummy year for the mid round running backs all right. How about a grade the trade. Oh wait for from tag junior well first of all. He's oh in three should he. Trade alvin cook for aaron jones and a standard league. I wouldn't know yeah. I cook gonna play from dog big dog wyatt grade. The trade give up keenan allen and miles gaskin for decay metcalf in jalen waddell keenan allen and gaskin for metcalf waddell who I think that's probably a no because of the guy probably doesn't have the running back depth to give up Gaskin i also. I don't really want any peace of waddell until two is back. And who knows when that's going to be at this point from patrick i have a trade offer. I've been going back and forth. I was offered. Tom brady rob gronkowski and joe mixon and i would give up either aaron jones or austin heckler and either jamal williams or tony pollard. And he just wrote williams. But i'm assuming it's jamal says williams or pollard right. So let's say that's ecuadoran williams. Because i'd rather have aaron jones and pollard. Right which you give actor and jamal williams for brady gronk and nixon and this is a one key league. Yes and he already has cousins and tannahill and does he give his tight end situation l. Okay we have to though he probably has no tight end or he has one of these. You know two weeks. Two to four five point per week tighthead ends. Because that's i mean that's the most of the league right now. Starting anthony for cser. Okay right. I think i do this as weird as it sounds. I guess i have more faith in mixing than others He scored this week. And i think that's gonna happen more often than not going forward I love brady. I've loved brady all year. He was in my top five quarterbacks before the season i think he makes a big difference. Weekly and i'm not so sure the other guys anymore. I mean cousins has so it's hard to say cousins is not making a d- a weekly difference so it's close. I think i'd do it. Tell you where croakers kirk cousins is done in his last ten games eleven. Incredible last eleven games. His sixteen game pace is four thousand. Eight hundred forty one yards forty one touchdowns four interceptions one hundred twelve point three passer rating and biggest number for me. Averaging thirty eight point seven pass attempts per game. That's the the the vikings defense has done. It's been done for a while now. All right one more from apple podcasts. From these it the notes i gave you. The font is so small. I was just gonna say adam. Why did you send me these notes in the three five even possible before you send it. I didn't think i'm literally going blind straining manage to read these questions along with you. I was gonna complain off. Bobbed glad you brought it. Up is terrible happening again. I mean you could easily just increased copy and paste into a dock. But it's just like do. I really have to go through all that work for like. Come on adam. Yeah me from coal two dollars. Dear wilson howell rivers and menchu. I have no idea. I'm owen three because of robert woods. Mike davis and a competent flex kelsey. Should i make a huge hall from kelsey trade ad owen. three see. This isn't like everybody asks us when their own three like do they trade their best player for a bunch of guys. That might be able to help. And i'm always in the boat of know chelsea's read not the reason euro in three right now. All right let me ask you this. You treat your own three you trade kelsey you get waller. Who's the second player that you need to get with waller to make this trade. I need a consistent producer. And who's going to trade any of those and need like a keenan allen type. I need a consistent producer. I'm not doing this for some receiver. Who doesn't consistently produce every week. It doesn't make sense to me like unless you. Maybe if you buy into the mike williams hype and you think you can buy there. You can do like mike williams type with waller. I just not doing it though. Because kelsey giving me my weekly advantage every week. And i don't want to lose that just to get an okay starter and darren waller all right by the way Sean mcvay expects daryl henderson to be available on sunday against the cardinals What do you think starter set. Daryl henderson i mean you're probably starting him because you don't have any other running backs to start if you have daryl enemies drafted as your rb to and i assume you haven't figured out unless you have like a patterson on your key. I easily could have drafted him as my rb three. You could have. Yes adam because you're dumping those picks into that spot into those spots but i- excuse me all right. let me go. Find my daryl. Oh you know what the one team. Which have daryl henderson listeners. Legally did where you're just pounding running backs from like three to six doing in that right now which one the one. We did like right before the season where you're like. Oh my god. This is such a good running back value time after time even though it was full. Pr playing this one out or was a mock draft. Now there was a mc so we're not gonna be able to find. No i think you might be talking about the fantasy football today league. I think so. I pretty sure it is the listeners league and we had the giving out the spots. You're just like oh my great value for running backs. And there's like gaskin. Ed no i would not have taken both gaskin so i maybe f- f- i drafted three running backs by. I four picks in a three receiver. Pr leak oh. That's that's a tough wouldn't have been if gus edwards gus edwards was one now god said words. Npr league that seemed like it was destined for success. I think he would have been great justifying the catches their anyway. I'm too in one and Are you yeah. Sure am and i'll be too into after this week. I'll tell you that much. But i have Robert why am i. starting wide. Receivers will be robert woods. Brand cooks and t higgins out. I understand that would be. That's why i'm going to be. Because i have to start. Sammy watkins this week and brian edwards and no one's ever had an injury at the receiver position before i had james white and gus edwards. I lost that. But i've sake barclay and derrick henry and i have let me see this t. I proved that this could work. Okay shove it. I.

I thought that of a fourteen race in the in the nfc west the man they lose to minnesota and it's not like they barely lose. They lose at home. That was supposed to be an advantage to crowd as you know. It's like you know. I know how important this is for them to kind of keep russell wilson happy. 'cause root big russ was trying to get out of here sierra. Kb singing in the fish mark. Man she already want to be the big market and now this goes bad you know. They may be trying to make a train for for for russell and start all over with now. Dan danger do you believe in in seattle. And if they don't get into the postseason what does that mean for russell and his future with seattle. Yeah well i mean first off of you're right when when seattle lost that game at home the other week you know. We're sitting back on man. We don't see that very often. The you know there are know. Twenty four to nine. You would think that they would close it out but they lost you know at home now. They go to minnesota. You like. that's okay russ get it done. There's no alvin cook there and they still got smoked so to me. Yes they got real questions. But that defense is horrendous russell wilson. Their defense is absolutely horrendous.

"Live from the seaport and brought to you by chase. Welcome back to jalen edgy. Kobe jalen rose through two weeks of the nfl season. There's a lot of teams that have a lot to be positive about however about to burst that public time for negative jacoby. Jalen take a look at this list of undefeated. Nfl football teams. And i'm going to tell you who the fraud are there right there at the top. The raiders are the broncos across the are. Those three towns will not make the playoffs. I guarantee it. So you are in las vegas colorado or carolina. Congratulations celebrating your to start. But you are fraudulent. Your thoughts mr rose to in all always means something. It doesn't me as much however that the nfl has moved to a seventeen game series. Seventeen game season. So now you have more opportunity to recover. From turbulent start and or have a good start and see goto the way. But you see sam darnold out there. The jet you saw sack throw four interceptions. Last week at christian. Mccaffrey just take for granted. He likes the ultimate dual threat. Catching view running out of the backfield. You gotta put some respect on de how about the ten for teddy bridgewater hooking up you. See him spray foot wall right you seeing that deep out. There playoffs the playoffs. The uncles the mr rose. Are you going to see the broncos in the playoffs. the panthers the playoffs. Probably not the raiders. What about you off. The raiders. The raiders down. A couple of good wins. They did get a couple of good wins. That's the panthers are truly fraudulent. The raiders however jury is still out. But i am negative jacoby so i'm going negative. I'm going negative. Maria hopkins curdled goes deep in the bulk. News to return all twenty two. Well there's the other side of this coin is well those are the two teams are also a bunch of oh and two teams which i know you're familiar with because you're lying are headlining this group. Oh into teams any teams turning around. Because i don't see any of these teams turning around and see if there is a team amongst that group that could turn around. I'll say it's the bike is because of the division that they play and it seems like kirk cousins. You can say whatever you wanna say bottom but he seems to still be productive and i loved alvin cook so i'll say them. If you're the colts you already know that you can't rely on carson wins. I've been rooting for him. And i wanted to see him. Get a fresh start but it seems like already. He's gonna be injury-prone this year in and out of the lineup this year so that would be the only team i'll say amongst that group. This shows potential promise to turn it around your lions had twelve and a half points in couldn't cover the spread. Not only are they putting it on the field but they're also putting it on social media. Look at some of these tweets that these franchises have put out there. Basically apologizing to their fan bases with us a hang more going to come on urban meyer. But are you doing. And then we have the falcons to go fifteen more. What losses i have. News for the falcons. You should have taken a quarterback. You gotta let julio go. I love really by the way he obese..

"Baby he looked taller in week. One note shorter correct to looked. Really schlitt reds. Yeah he was awesome. It's so much fun to watch him. Play and Yeah i mean i. The vikings should have won this game. I really do think that because they were just running running. All over the cardinals. Obviously we're in a place to win that game. It was also a very pro. Vikings crowd down in arizona. And that's because that's where all the old people from minnesota sire don't move to florida. They moved to middle schools their zone. Yeah yes yes. I think there was like a false start. In the first half was caused by the minnesota. Vikings fans rondo more. Shut up purdue. That's my nice thing. About purdue boiler up i love rondo. Moore's awesome but when he gets the ball in the open field. Sometimes i think it's cuyler murray running with the ball. Yeah they do kind of have a similar look to him and yet he i. Just what rewire sat touchdown he had. There was no one even close to him And then. Jj watt like tweeting about like the afc richmond shirt and being like just like ted lasso. Says you've got to believe As jj watt is that just b. and jj. I like ted last. But i expected that. Yeah it's a great tv show but some people were as head say liking. Ted lasso is not a personality. And that's not what she was doing. But i just know the. Jj watt being accused lasso. Fan is the leash shocking. News of all time Eileen not in a nice way actually do think that liking ted laso should count as a personality trait at least half. Yeah like most. People's personalities are based around shows that they like. Yeah right he's okay. People can say. They read books as part of their personality. Why can't i. I wa i half watch. Tv shows while. I scroll twitter did you see. Jj apologizing to dalvand cook after injured him so jj took out dalvin cooks knee and then approached alvin cook and took a knee and talk to him plaza cayman. Listen all respect. We're going to get up stronger. Knock me down eight times. Get up nine class. Jj was jj was honestly trying to fix the mistake that he may. Yes yes because i mean. I'm being serious now. I know it's hard sometimes when we talk about him put. He's not a dirty player. So that would i. I wouldn't be shocked if he felt very bad about a play. not going. you're getting someone hurt. Or he was miked up or he was mike. That was you saying that. Not us Yes he could have been mike. Remember what he told ray rice like. I've i've eaten bigger burritos than you. Now that was just a coincidence. He didn't know he was miked up for that one he was like. That's that's a major bryce into shambo. Like i've got some one liners. Ready says is going to be us. All right falcons bucks. I wa- what happened to arthur smith's chin. Oh i didn't see no. He has none. Oh yeah thinking. No i know i know. I know what it's shocking. Every time i see it. I did go back and look i searched arthur smith chint to see if there was some kind of issue that i didn't know about in just the first two results. Remain you talking about is no chin like seven months ago but i. He's the opposite of bill cower. Like i don't i don't know if you can win. Football games no chin. I'm pulling it up right now. It also has to do the fact. He keeps his mouth open lot. Sometimes the bottom of chin disappears into the neck. Especially if you've got if you're lugging around a couple extra pounds. Can you get chin implants. You could probably get a chin implant. I just know that. If i were. Sharon's plant i'm looking at him. He tried to coach me up. Dude you gotta chain i. It's very tough to judge. Whether or not arthur smith is a good coach right now. He's got no chin beard. You got yes we go. Yeah good point hank. You don't know from anything besides just helping a guy out. No hank is just. He knows what makes a guy who i totally forgot like. You're sitting right here. We should've mentioned when we started saying no chin so what. how do you live your time. arthur disguise. Do you have trouble eating trouble dipping. Not nothing to do with anything. Do you ever like think that you're gonna choke yourself to death now with your chin now or lack thereof. I know you're talking about jeb. You ever tried to like go. You know those those machines that are you like lay upside down to stretch out your back. You were tried to do that. Stretch out your chin maybe will fall back into place. I would be lying. If i said i haven't looked up the chinon plan thing and they exist they do we should do. It'd be worth it for for arthur smith and yet for giver action. Like bite like the top of your chin with your upper. Not no do you ever get worried that it's like melting is just gonna keep going down like falling down your chest no okay. I think that's all of our actions Any shows on a bill. Brian which would you rather have. I would assume brian chin with a hole in it. Yeah i do. I hope we can grow beer. Because hanks right and again not speaking from experience hank is right. He needs to grow beard. He has no chin what he needs. He just needs to do the dan quinn just like fu manchu thing or even like or even just like a really thin line like it's like here's where chin should be. What if you just grew chinstrap beard okay. Here's what he should do. He should grow the chinstrap beard and then always have Air pods in his ears. Yes and they'd walk around. His team would respect him..

"alvin cook" Discussed on GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast

"Back here on the gsm see fantasy football podcast for the second segment of today's show. We're gonna do the over under sigua and talk about the players on the minnesota vikings and talk about whether or not i think they will eclipse their fantasy. Totals from last year. Be around the same numbers or be below their fantasy totals. So let's get right into that so starting off with the quarterback position of the vikings. You got kirk. Cousins kirk cousins last year had a really good season. Statistically forty two hundred yards passing thirty five touchdowns thirteen interceptions and his fantasy. Totals is fantasy numbers finished at three hundred six point two so i think he's going to be below those numbers this year. I think it's going to be hard to replicate that because these numbers are very high. I don't think he's gonna get thirty five touchdowns this year. I think he can throw close to thirty. I don't think he's going to replicate what he did. The last year. When it comes to his touchdown passes. I think he could get close to four thousand yards while he got forty two hundred forty two hundred sixty five last year. He could probably close to that again. But i think it'd be a little bit below that interceptions i feel like will be about the same. Fumbles maybe try to work on that. But overall numbers i think will still be solid this year i think however they will be below his fancy totals from last year so i do think he'll be under that three hundred six point to point total so moving onto the running back position. You got dalvin cook last year. On three hundred twelve rushing attempts he rushed for fifteen hundred. Fifty seven rushing yards. He had sixteen rushing touchdowns. He finished with three hundred. Fifteen point. Eight fancy points. This is going on the. Espn numbers half pr. I think he is going to get below that. I still think he will have a solid season. He's going to be for the most part. The second running back taken off the board and a lot of drafts. And i do think that that will continue but i definitely do think this is going to be a point total. That is going to be hard to match. And i'm thinking to say that he's gonna be under that. Also dalvin cook does tend to miss a game or two during the year and i have a feeling that that's going to happen again this year and it's just based on the position he plays so i'm going to say that he is going to have great season and i think a lot of people would agree with that but i do think he's going to blow his fancy totals. I do think that it's almost a guarantee that he's going to miss at least one or two games during the year. So that's my thoughts on alvin cook. Then we could talk about their other running back. alexander madison. Their backup to alvin cook last year. On ninety six attempts he rushed for four hundred thirty four yards and two touchdowns eight point four fantasy points. I definitely think that that's probably around the total that he'll get maybe a little bit above that if he sees an increase in playing time. I do think that you know. Overall the vikings are going to be a better team this year. And i think they are going to. You know maybe wanna give alvin cook a little bit more of a break. In between if he's you know going off because obviously you wanna keep them fresh and you don't want him to get injured like i just said that he could be guaranteed to miss a game due to injury. So you know you have alexander. Madison run a little bit more than he has keeped. Alvin cook fresh. So i'm gonna say he's going to be around his fantasy totals. I think he'd get more than two touchdowns this year. However rameses going be around that fantasy total eighty point four maybe a little bit above maybe a little bit below but i would say around that total that he had last year will probably get that this year. Espn has a projected at one hundred. Four point six so they're probably anticipating that either cook gonna get hurt or we're going to see an increase playing time for alexander madison. We'll just have to wait and see on that. So that's my thoughts on the running backs for the vikings so now moving onto the receivers of the vikings. I will talk about justin jefferson. He's coming off a season that you know. It was really good for him as a rookie last year looking at his statistics from last year. Eighty eight receptions on one hundred twenty five targets fourteen hundred yards exactly seven touchdowns finished with two hundred thirty point. Two fantasy points. I think is probably going to be under that this year slightly. I still think he's gonna be great. He's going to be one of the top wide receivers taken off the board. I think he's going to be a top ten top twelve fantasy wide receiver. But i do think he's going to be slightly under the fancy totals that he had from year ago. But i still think he's going to be really productive gonna be a solid wide receiver one for your team and yeah definitely a guy that you should be looking for. In targeting in your drafts. Expect him to have another great season so then moving on to another receiver on the vikings. You have adam feeling last year. Seventy four receptions one hundred targets nine hundred twenty five receiving yards and fourteen touchdowns and he finished a two hundred seventeen fantasy points. I definitely think that fourteen touchdowns very high for him last year. So i'm definitely going to expect that you're going to see a reduction in that. I don't think he's gonna match fourteen touchdowns like he did a year ago. I do think that he'll still get a decent amount. But i don't think fourteen is realistic this year. I still think he'll be a productive receiver. Definitely a guy that kinda sees his fantasy value diminish a little bit from years past now with the emergence of justin jefferson. You know definitely is starting to get a little bit older. But i think he's still a productive fantasy wide receiver. I don't know why everyone is just not as high on deal. And as they have been i guess. Yeah because he's getting older because he's dealt with injuries and justin jefferson. Looks like he's going to take over and take a lot of targets away from deal in which you know that happened last year. And it's going to happen this year but i guess people just aren't high on dealing as they have been and i'm a little confused by it. It's just i. It's very weird that like everyone's just so turned off by feeling. I mean i just named reasons. Why but it's just kind of weird. Why you know feeling is dropping like so dramatically because now when you look at the vikings offense they don't have a number three wide receiver. I mean they did bring in keelan cold but how much is or sorry. I've been saying keelan coal. They brought in dede westbrook. Now that i'm looking at this robinson keelan coal like this entire time. I think he and kohl's on the jets so i haven't seen cold is entire time and actually dede westbrook. That's their number three wide receiver. Don't think he's really going to factor in taking targets away from the jefferson. He does add another weapon to the offense. But i really don't think he's going to cause problems for justin jefferson worth so going back to. I think it will be under fourteen touchdowns. I think he's gonna be slightly under his fantasy towards from last year but i still think he's going to be productive wide receiver. I think he could still be a solid wide receiver to for your teams or if not that definitely affleck's option so that's my thoughts on adam feeling so let's go to dede westbrook last year one reception on one target for four yards and he finished with negative. One point one fantasy points. I think he's going to get above that and if he does play of course we just play above that negative one point one. Is you know that you could definitely beat that so yet. Don't really have to go into more detail on that. I was gonna talk about chad baby. But he's on. I r so i'm guessing you know he's not really going to have an impact on the team early on and really isn't going to have an impact in fantasy because he's going to be or would be the number four wide receiver so i'm not going to talk about that. I'll just just stop talking about the wide receivers for the vikings so earth smith. Junior gonna be out. The entire season is really unfortunate because this was a guy that was very high on. I thought he was going to have a great season. Because the vikings like i talked about really didn't have a number three wide receiver. They bring in dede westbrook. But even if the even with irv smith junior and dede westbrook on the field the same time i think kirk cousins with target irv smith junior lot more and also earth smith. Junior was a guy that they used a lot and targeted a lot in the red zone. So that's definitely going to be something. That is going to be missed for this. Vikings offense and it's just a reminder of how injuries are just a part of the game Stinks injuries stink..

"Because i'm sitting there watching that motion. Hopefully everyone paid attention that offensive. Line there watching that motion go. Nobody is talking. There's no communication. There's no offensive ongoing wait. Wait we've got a goal from the left or the right. Justin field isn't doing it. And i know we can't because i watched them do it at ohio state. Then my issue is this. If you're gonna put your rookie quarterback out there without offensive line. And you're either going to equip the offensive line to handle the pressure or the quarterback dan the pressure. You got a problem as coaching. You have a problem as coaching. And my issue. Right now with matt nagy as the lack of communication the lack of communication and the clarity of exactly what should be happening in chicago. You've spent some time around matt nagy. What do you think the way. He's handling this sedans point. It's not about a lack of talent. I think it's Results of not great coaching right. The bears are plenty. Talented allah robinson was a phenomenal receiver. Top seven and a lot of people's is david montgomery whose another phenomenon running back. In emerging talent he was second league. Miss tackling broken tackles behind alvin cook and derrick henry. So it's not about talent for me. It's about coaching. I think that the problem here is that any don't really shook play. Any dog should start off the season to allow. Justin feels the luxury of sitting watching and learning but the issue is that matt nagy wants to keep his job and so you saw early on. He said well he's started. And then after just feels look good. Matt nagy said well. We're going to do what's best for the chicago bears and then now we're seeing well any our starter against and so like the issue. Here is the fact that the bears aren't talented. The bears have plenty. Talented defense is good..

"And with that to delving. Cook and alvin cook as a player. Who's just remarkable last season. I think there's a case. Smith a case last year he may have been the safest bet week to week. Maybe is the safest bet week to week going forward. And here's the reason why i'm gonna explain. Let me explain this further. Is that when you're looking for a safe floor and fantasy. You certainly want amazing rushing ability. He has that as this. Somebody like derrick henry right but you also want somebody who has passing game usage. Maybe he's actually just second in terms of safety If you look at alvin cooks game log last year yeah like the passing volume was just consistent the renault as like a thirteen reception game that makes his end of season. Numbers look better than they were. It was like consistently frequently between like four and six catches like forty to fifty yards. I think he finished the year last year. Forty i think it was forty four catches maybe last year for dobbin. Cook just solid dependable. Five to seven points added per week as a receiver. that's kind of value. I think you're looking for so other than christian mccaffrey. Who we know has a one thousand yard rushing plus one thousand yard receiving upside every single week. Alvin cook checks all the boxes. One thousand rushing and receiving every single week every single season. I don't mean week. Because i'm madame. Thirty thousand totally arts from here and we're splitting hairs right so like derrick. Henry doesn't have as much receiving upside and alvin. Kamara is not used as frequently as a runner right so delve cook cook- cooking number two. I think he's a pretty clear number. Two we we did our draft last night. And meantime took alvin kamara at two which i was a little surprised about given that i think dow cook resorted to. She really likes chimera stein. You manage to get venue and derrick henry at three. So there's certainly look. I don't think can go wrong with any of those running backs. Plus plus ezekiel elliott or alvin. Cook all of a sudden. I got something in my throat. That's why you're hearing me is about. Maybe he's just getting to. It's going to happen every few every few days every once in a while. You just get those emotions can can i. Can i go get water. Water y'all can get your throw clear. I'll talk about daba cook here for a second but again i should redo that for the video team. No it's okay. all right. Alvin cook though top two touch his last year. Top two in scrimmage yards top two and total touchdowns scored last year. As i mentioned i was actually correct. Forty four catches last season consistent solid steady. He's star. The vikings have a lot invested him and despite the fact that we know minnesota has a capable back behind him and alexander madison. If the dalvin cook show alvin cook is not on the field. He is the workhorse third and both red zone carries and goal to go carries. That's what's exciting is not only. Is he the guy that gets you between the twenties. But when they get in close they also give it to daven cook. They like to run mike. Zimmer likes to run. When you're getting close and i actually think you mentioned alexander madison. I think alexander. Madison is a point in favor of dow in cook. And i'll tell you why look. Football is a violent sport knowing the fact that you can draft insurance for alvin. Cook and alexander madison. I think is helpful because there. There's some players that are going. And you're sorta like like derrick henry back to back up doing lavigne's maybe like we think it's going to be but we haven't really seen it right like there are some elite running backs where you're just sort of like like you know that ezekiel elliott's backup. Is tony pollard. Great i do think having a clear a clear guy to draft actually helps. Because you can. Then you can. You've got that position to me. Daban cook is clear number two overall and number two running back and fantasy this year with you right there dow cook also feels like a guy that embraces the fantasy goodness as well he is cooking. Can all ask your expect him to cook again this upcoming year time. Now for a blind resume. We've got brian blind resume. Which is brought to you by hot wire book. An expensive hotel for cheap not wire. Donald hot wire apt book. Beyond your wildest means all bookings our final. So i'm gonna have. You tried to fill in the blank since two thousand eighteen. Here's a look at the most touchdown receptions per game i player will give you the answer. Devante adams players. Abc point he had and by the way. Davante adams two thousand. Eighteen has averaged point eight eight receiving touchdowns per game player. A on seven nine player. Be as point. Seven one player see is point six four. Anything one of these is adam feeling okay. I don't feel. I i agree with as well i will go with. Tyreek hill is one of them. And then i will go with the gun. Third guesses here. t t big touchdown makers since twenty s going to say it could be. I was gonna say mike evans. Maybe mike evans yeah. Let's see what happened on any guesses exactly.

"alvin cook" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show

"When has an organization ever had to have that humility when it executives ever had to baal down on in that way to a player. And you aren't used to it if you're the green bay packers who was one of the most historic organizations in football right. It's also a team that doesn't have an owner right. Because right now if i'm if i'm jerry jones and older the dallas cowboys and understand the position. I mean i can come out and say you know what i made a mistake. Right is a really good point. The packers are different. I was wrong. i can't do that. They're publicly owned. And so now these people who run this organizations they're more presidents and ceo's rather than the type of the executive we're used to seeing the have actual skimming money in the game. They're running like a business not a family. That's interesting very interesting point. That's why we have ryan clark on the show. The max kellerman show espn radio okay. Camakers ryan i. I'm heartbroken for this and can make or so. I think the best running back in football. This year will be saquon. If he's healthy and then christian mccaffrey. And i think there's a drop off after that but after that i think there's kamara and i think there's maybe alvin cook henry derrick henry but he's i'm talking about guys do a lot of things at the running back position great to be the very best. I think you need to. Nowadays the point is like yeah. Derrick henry has to be there you're right given the so there's five or six guys and i really thought that this year right from week one camakers was going to join that group. He was so good in the second half of last year and to have a super bowl aspirational team. And have this happened to that guy. Like think of golf with girly and what. What mcveigh who was on the show. Ahead sean mcvay on the show yesterday. What mcveigh was able to do with gossen girly now. He's got stafford more talented than goff if he had acres what he could do with stafford. I think it's actually a bigger hit than some football heads. Think this is. What is your impression of the rams and camakers. What can they do to try to make it up. This is a huge hit. If you watch the way last season played out cam acres was beginning to become that guy and many people. Don't know this or don't pay attention. He was like a quarterback in high school but he was the number one running back headed into florida state. He was a guy who was expected to do. Big things right away and it kinda took a second but then you could see the talent and now you add that to matthew stafford so those wide receiver so the tight end in in la and sean mcvay being able to use him in the past game in the run game much like todd. Gurley was shoes. When audits i started clicking. I felt like camakers even if the numbers didn't eventually show it because the ball was going to be spread around so much was going to be an integral part of this offense as probably some of those second tier guys you talked about. Maybe not the mccaffrey's maybe not you know to saquon barclays but right under there. That's when we were going to start talking about camakers because of what surrounded him because of the system. This is a huge blow to the los angeles rams because so much has been focused on staff stafford but if we think back to the glory days of this offense which i say the glory days it's like three years ago when they were when they were really clicking it was all about play action football and it started at running back. No doubt i mean. We're forgetting already the super bowl. We wanted to see was chiefs in rams back then the high powered offenses were chiefs. And rams and i like this really is a tough one for l. a. Usually you lose a running back. You're like look it's the line play. There'll be other running backs but this one is a tough one has ripple effect i think finally ryan clark you were a pittsburgh steeler now when i was growing up if your local team stunk. The proper out of market rooting interest was the steelers. When i was a little kid. I was a steelers fan for as a giants banks. They were no good then. They drafted lt. Things turned around. But if you didn't have a soul you rooted for the cowboys and the cowboys and the steelers were natural enemies as a result you were pittsburgh steeler. So i'm sure you have a point of view about the cowboys that's not favourable but let me ask you this. The defense should be better than last year. How could it be worse. The offense is gonna look really good. Here comes dak prescott. Are you buying the cowboys this season. Ryan clark steelers champion. You know what. I'm buying height because there isn't much right. Think about two years ago headed into the season always talked about was the cowboys. Maybe a super bowl team last year when they get mike mccarthy. Maybe you're super bowl team and go on tv and off season and say hey man not so fast like it just doesn't happen like that. Here's what the cowboys should be this year. The cowboys should have an opportunity to win in. See the only team. I think they're competing with is the washington football team. I'm taking that prescott prescott over ryan fitzpatrick any ryan fitzpatrick. He is able to hold his job a whole season even like he's great for five weeks and then by the end of the year another guy has the job exactly right. And so now you say jason garrett was fired because he couldn't help this team progress so to me for mike mccarthy to keep his job. This team has to progress past the first round in the playoffs. And mark my words max kellerman. I'm telling you this today in july. Still if this team is better defensively. But they don't move on in the play offs dan. Quinn is the next head coach of the dallas cowboys. I don't nine that idea. If i was a cowboys fan. Actually i'm a giants fan. I want it to stay just like this. I think sleeping on the giants chances this year. But but if i'm a cowboy fan maybe i don't wanna be great desire to get to get a better head coach. All right the great ryan. Clark ladies and gentlemen you can see them all over. Espn talking not just nfl.

"Ezekiel. Elliott is not a top-12 running back by yourself. I don't know if I can page him twelve other running backs. I'd rather have off the top of my head. So I'm going to say that I sell that he is still a top 12 running back rest. Yes. I literally wrote in one of the five subject that I chose for believe it or not. It is time to be worried about Ezekiel Elliott's and Amari Cooper. Should we go eat it. Should we go through the exercise right now of naming 12 running back in about an alternate domain running should because there's an old saying well, I mean, I think I think there's probably like eight at least. Okay, let me know. I think we should do it cuz this was interesting we did it on Twitch. Okay. So Camaro off a draft right now, we're doing a draft know. We're just naming running backs drafts Alvin Kamara Yes, Alvin cook know he's hurt doesn't suck. Would you rather have rest of season is ich? All right. Well, you're definitely I might go back Derrick Henry, cook, even with what's going rate for sure. Yeah Henry for sure. That's three James Conner. Zeke yeah, I think I don't think I don't know if I can say Connor not with Benny Snell goal-line back in so that was that was one place. I don't think I know it's been multiple places cord multiple one year cuz I had a touchdown called back by a penalty. He had another receiving touchdown that he dropped also in at the goal line that they they were fighting games. I think he's at I do too well running back and just as he gets to Christian McCaffrey. Yeah McCaffrey. Yes. No. Yes. We don't know when Christian McCaffrey's coming back. We don't know if Zeke's going to be consistent as he wants was I'm telling you that the Dallas situation is rough. Yeah, I don't want I've got four right edwards-helaire, you know, then you get to know Todd Gurley who scores a one-week. No, David Johnson who scores everyone am you say no, but all right. I mean, I sort of Arizona Aaron Jones for child like three of my believe that they're not in the one dog. Aaron Jones Aaron Jones for sure, so I'm at right. Is there a Jones going to play next week who care like like are already had his by? All right. So like there's there's something to the fact of life. Yes..

"Right? We ended up seeing it when when they went for Kirk cousins, it was originally a three year deal right? Here's the window we got our quarterback. Let's go try to win this thing. It feels like Minnesota is perpetually that team here ask couple years I. Like Yana Can Gakuen a lot. I. Didn't like the way. He kind of handled things in terms of maybe Jacksonville is complicit in their own demise from this end in terms of setting guys up to ultimately try to shoot their way out of town. If other people do it, you know why shouldn't en- Gakugei and he pretty much did that that said man if Minnesota doesn't get it done this year then at what point do you look at it and say, okay, we've done every little tweak that we can hear why why didn't this work? This almost feels Like to me another kind of make or break move from the Minnesota Vikings in terms of them trying to do things the way they have been and going to win a super bowl because as we know, you know the cavs probably going to go down a little bit or expand anywhere near as much as they thought. So big time free agents mean you know looked Alvin Cook has one great ear look out that salary could explode into a neighborhood where Minnesota may be can't keep the player and it's And they've been the perpetually like one of these teams, the saints for this way to where they've some the chiefs are another one where they've been able to magically make the cap or you know like every year they're kicking, we can down the road. And so you know again like next year. All right now jahics up Dalvin cooks up what do you do left tackle with Riley Reef you just restructured him and as you said, the CAP is going down. I just like it because I just think that they're again they're in that sweet spot and that core of players they have is not getting any younger and eventually Kyle Rudolph's GonNa fall off and eventually Adam seal is gonNA fall off and eventually Harrison Smith GonNa fall off and I just. You know I've got questions about where they're at corner. I've got questions about where they're at on the offensive line. They're going to need some young players to play really well bradberry on the offensive line gladly and the secondary. But Just as far as where they are and when they're actually going to have to bandy off and rebuild. Diving in on a gopher move especially Gresh. first-round pick. Do it yeah that's There's no question. The compensation worked I guess it also goes to show kind of worthy in Gakugei market was, and again you know I hate to sound like I'm banging away on the old Jacksonville. Organization here however, you know in dealing with them maybe they know there really wasn't a market and just let that market calmed down because think about it. If Minnesota is as good as they think they can be you know what what are we looking at fifty nine, sixty, sixty first pick in the draft or something that's part of it tim right it's how good you think you're going to be absolutely. Third Takeaway Joe. Mixon. This week signs a four year forty, eight, million dollar deal Alvin Kamara for the first time. I'd say he's got that contract negotiations gotten a little sideways..

"Yeah, thanks. So he's pretty talented player or you know you're just kind of betting on the com- so to speak and I think yard. He makes a Lotta sense for for Boston here after having Kelsey, you know a little bit of an upside young player as someone find seem. Feel like McColl. Hartman's actually come back down to Earth. I remember when people are just going crazy drafting him talking about how great his upside is and all these big plays he can make, and you know you saw him sometimes like the eighth round sometimes the seventh round the highest he's gone has been the eighth round over the last seven days. Tonight he goes at what was that Lebanon three? Eighty ps eleven to I feel like that's a better spot for but seems more in range I. I actually feel like he should go a little bit later after his teammate, but that's just again my take is we talked about in the past. All right. So Ronald Jones. In the seven tonight keyshawn Bon in the eleventh. The. Prices on those guys after the Shawn McCoy signing I don't think has changed all that much Jones I guess normally goes at the five await So maybe a little bit of a dip there that's quite a dip. Yeah. Von As normally going at the nine ten. So good value for Sean on their. This is Kinda like where were we talked about is I I don't think McCoy has a huge impact on the team gets possibility does I could be totally wrong. So I feel like getting. Roggio. Now in the seventh round I feel like now you're kind of that's kind of where I would. Like to pay for to get him. I. Look at Kansas City last year. Dave didn't even have him active down the stretch of. He wasn't a super. He wasn't even yeah and and so now you goes to a Tampa team that can has super bowl aspirations but you and I both like Ronald Jones I I think at this point of their in life von has more juice than than shady McCoy as weird as it is to say that but I think that's that's accurate and that's where currently add on the buccaneers running back situation. I'm with you I don't I. Don't think McCoy has a huge has a huge impact here in Tampa this year moving onto the twelfth round Dave Boston Scott. The third running back selected by Peter overs that here at the twelve o one Jay Stern Burger. My Guy At twelve. Oh, to to the supreme here Baker Mayfield backing up Josh. Allen for Jeremy Browne. Andrew. Madison Matt growth gets the handcuff therefore, his Alvin Cook First Round selection for chief Nah for cheap is Alexander Madison goes on the twelfth round and I and I feel like they've. They'll get back to the analysis here in a second but Madison has slipped now to the ten. Oh, seven on average which I still think is kinda cheap for him and I think that's all because. delvin Cook reported to training camp you know and and a Lotta. The misgivings you know Henry Muto I think was was in the chat. Last Tuesday when Cook reported and said that You know all these. He was listening to all these on. Siriusxm saying that Cook was a was a bad first round investment and to me if you made that first round investment looking pretty good now because you've probably got him a little bit later, he should've gone. Yeah and we were the ones who were saying he's GONNA report it'll be fine and. Luckily hopefully, the people are listening to our podcast drafted Cook Damian Harris after that to Shane Hallam little shameless self promotion there I love it. Yeah. I'm glad to do it better. Instead of me all the time Ben Rothlisberger is backing up. Russell Wilson for Todd Pavlik followed by latavius Murray to John Paulson Their Daryl Henderson, the Frank Pratt, and then brandon off the board at the twelve old nine to silver Sony Michelle to Paul Simon and then Daniel Jones to Josh. Hayes after that CD lamb goes to team Russell with the final pick of its wealth brown Dave I'm going. To present the twelfth around without comment to you want you to start at the twelve one, go all the way to the twelve twelve. Maybe don't have to all the way to the twelve twelve maybe could stop at the twelve ten and tell me if there's anything that sticks out to you about a couple of running backs that were picked this round, who may or may not be real life teammates. Oh. Yeah. Also, Damian. Harris goes ahead of Sony Michelle Yeah and this is how you would be picking them to. You'd be taking here. So Michelle man I feel why would not you would take Michelle over here I think I would. Yeah. I. Mean He is technically the starter. Why? Why would I take one? Kerry. Last year over the start because that guy's young and healthy and the other guy is old and not healthy not all but he's not healthy. So. Yeah. What what is his injury? He's not like some sort of a public or something like that. The look it up right now I I. The thing is I even Michelle is not really on my draft list so I don't really keep track of him. So I think the right guy to own teams white in the nine. So that was nice. Pick at the nine, right All. Right. So Sony Michelle here is what we're going on. He is on the active Publis with a foot injury he had foot surgery in May and had two hundred, forty seven carries last year three point seven yards per carry obvious you know maybe I wouldn't you know I I don't normally draughts only Michelle. So I really wasn't all that aware of what you know what his status was apologize that's okay to apologize. People just want you to bring it I. Don't know if I would take gaming Harris ahead of US still talk to. As the starter but I value that cardinal rule not to draft players that. Are Injured, coming to training camp inserted while waiting on me to have surgery and it's so crazy, right. So this is more of a baseball thing but a lot of times and again I don't want to compare the injuries because they're totally different but a lot of these guys get these strained ligaments or partially torn ligaments and their elbow, a lot of these pitchers they try to rehab it I, avoid the Tommy John Surgery and then they come back they pitch like crap and they ended up having the surgery anyway. Right so maybe that's what happened with Michelle is he thought he could rehab this foot injury and then it just got to be a point where like I can't do this. I'm going to have to have this surgically repaired on. That's why had I don't know I. I'm just trying to speculate. So we possible shouldn't really should be more informed on Sony Michelle if I were that until I e I mean exactly now we should get to packer on because that guy should be the expert on Tony Michelle what yeah. So. Damien. Harrison such disappointing rookie season that it's tough to get behind your afternoon but it doesn't make sense. He was talented coming out of school I was surprised that he was used. So infrequently let's go to the seventy seven ladies and gentlemen right now and take another phone call here in the F. F. Our coverage of pros vs Joe is twenty, twenty, seven to seven. You're on the air and bulky who are we talking to? This is.

"I don't know if I've got anything on that. I I have to agree. You know this whole social distancing thing has thrown us more onto our phones. My wife is video chatting with my niece and her sister on a regular basis. And it's gotten to the point now where I just. I hear it in the background and I started shaking and I question myself. I don't want to be anywhere near it. The shot the cameras are horrible video yet. It's just not just not a good situation so what I'm going to give two thumbs up to that tape van wow fries bedded. Ira enjoying it. I play games with like my cousins. We play like We're we'RE GONNA play family feud this week it's GonNa be awesome. Yeah right it's fun right then. Yeah I got a group of Friends who women Plant Board Games who playing poker on there We did a power hour drinking game because one of my whole college buddies made this video. That has all these music videos in every minute. It changes it was great sing alongs. I mean I enjoy it. He would you like to be part of the family zoom this weekend. A play family feud Are you hosting and making up the rules? Yes no okay good because I was not prepared for a yes. Answer run by the group. I don't know how that would wet. I think that is the first thing you've ever invited me to. I don't know if that's true when you invited everyone else here with me Just David Jamie all right. Let's talk to see here and you know you have a tendency to just talk about rookies. But I think you know a guy like Michael Gallup last year and those types of players are really interesting that you're to your three guys that we haven't heard from. And how do you identify those year to breakouts? This'll be relevant for people who play in Dynasty Leagues and people who don't just getting ready for your draft for for a seasonal league Jeff How do you identify your two or year? Three breakout somebody. That can really surprise us. You know a number of years ago. I used to spend a lot more time looking at the year. Three breakout on receivers. But quite honestly now if there's no magic formula to it I mean there are so many metrics out there and to be completely transparent. I don't use a lot of the metrics out there. The points per route and points per snap and things like that. I like good ole fantasy points per game quite honestly. I'm looking at targets per game. I'm looking especially to end the season. I'm looking for players. That have seen an uptick in production. You take somebody like an Anthony Miller. Who's who somebody unsleeping on or one of my sleepers on this year as well you take a look at what he did over the second half the season. And you don't hear anybody talking about healthy meal right now yet. He in four or five game stretch yet fifty targets he is completely sleeping the first half a season and then he came to life in the second half of the season and so I love to see the ramp up into the second half of the season and production to end the season. And then of course you fold in. What a team did in the offseason via free agency or via the draft? And then you just have to ask their you know just going to be good for this player or is it going to be bad for the player? There's there's no real secret to it to me. It all comes down to good old fashioned production fair enough. I mean I like the simplicity there and Yeah Miller I think we all have a little bit of interest in him kind of as a late round pick but maybe you get him as a Bilo Dynasty League and I think Nick Foles Help Ben how about you. Is there anything you're looking for? Yeah he mentioned. Jeff Mission your three wide receivers We had an email me heath ben and the rest of the F. T. crew an email chain today talking about your two wide receivers and that appears they're breaking out a little bit earlier Ben. So Dynasty lead people probably need to pay attention to that trend right? Yeah Yeah and if you look at it from the Big Picture. I think over the last several years. We've started to see that more. There are more year to break APPs in year. Three wide receiver breakouts players are starting to be productive earlier in their careers from the from the broader standpoint. But there are a lot of confounding factors and other other things that impact that Draft Capitals Big One Guys that get drafted Tend to get earlier opportunities in their career. So they're going to be more likely to break out earlier in the data does back that up and so you can think of that a couple different ways if a if a top hundred pick doesn't break out in the first couple three years he's probably pretty fair to write off a late around picky might actually still have some some hope for if they're working their way into opportunity a guy like Allen. Lazard who I believe was undrafted I'm pretty excited about. He's he's only going into. I think you're three now but I'm pretty excited about him. Because he's finally in a position where he's GonNa get opportunity in. He had a good prospect profile good production at college. I do agree with Jeff. I mean I don't think you can. I think you can over analyze all the advanced statistics and production tends to Beget production and that's true from college. Production into the NFL So lazard are big reason. I like him. He was so productive in college So yeah I mean it tends to vary by different players but yeah I I think we can expect earlier breakouts now than we used to. I think if you look at last year like the two big brother more than two but like what Chris Godwin did with what. Dj More did we were talking about at the beginning of the year. The opportunity had. That's what I'm looking for. Like their most of the rookies last year. I think are going to have Above average good fantasy careers. Most those guys but the guy that's going to break out in year two or the is gonNA break out next year and you're three is likely to be the guy that gets a lot more opportunity. It's really hard to and we don't always know. It was evident in Tampa Bay with Godwin last year. And we had a pretty good idea with more but some situations are a little bit murkier like with Jay Brown like he was incredible and incredibly efficient. We know that's going to regress some but that could easily be made up for if he's got a shot one hundred and twenty targets this year. It won't matter how much he's going to regress and he does because to just point. He didn't start playing full snaps until we tend. He's a perfect example of a guy who really wasn't a fulltime receiver until the end of the year. He was in the forty percent snap range. I think all through September than was up around sixty percent all through October and it was really November when he started playing eighty percent plus snaps and he was great down the stretch. Well but I'm talking about like let's take a guy like me Hartmann. Jeff Okay. Second round. Pick to drafts ago. Pretty quiet. Rookie. Year five hundred. Thirty eight yards six touchdowns only twenty six catches only forty one targets in sixteen games. When tyreek Hill was out he was pretty healthy. We were hoping for Hardman that Sammy. Watkins wouldn't be back but right. Now there's a lot of people harmon but again it's a second round pick. And how do you value a second round pick in the NFL draft two years? How do you value a guy like Hartman? Could he have that Michael Gallup type year? Do we have to wait? Maybe one more year. And then he's on academy evaluate somebody like that from a dynasty perspective and then how how destroy one more guy in there about Alexander Madison. You know he's Kinda Berry Right now behind Alvin Cook but Alvin cooks going into his fourth year running back short shelf life. You know what I mean there. They're some dynasty leaks spring so many interesting perspectives players. How would you evaluate guys like that? Who showed flashes but didn't have great opportunity in their rookie year. Sure now that's in. Both those players are interesting and a lot of also comes down to you as dynasty coach. How competitive is team? You have the luxury of being patient. Alexander Madison. You have to love the way runs. I mean in in short spells A to delvin. Cook he was he was awesome. But YOU'RE GONNA have to wait. That offense runs through Alvin Cook and so you may have to wait for a second contract. You may have to wait for injury. There's there's no way with Madison. In order to get that type of return that you can overdraft him and expect production in the next twenty four months or the next two seasons talent and skill definitely there. But you're going have to be patient so if you're a competitive dynasty team and you have the ability to be patient sto these guys get them onto your roster knowing that they may not hit another two or three seasons however if you can handcuff them even better now somebody like Nicole. Hardman similar type situation but dynamic as receiver to me is different than dynamic as a running back and I love for receivers change of circumstance. Now that can go with any with any particular position to change circumstances. Offense is something that I look for as a new seasons beginning or as an old as a season's coming to an end so is there somebody who's going to be a free agent? Is it gonna a spot on the depth chart somebody? Mike McCall Hartman. A little bit like Madison. His dynamic is different and in that type of offense all it's GonNa take a small change of circumstance for him to get his opportunity. Watkins GonNa go down and injured again. And he's going to get his opportunity. I think once hardman. He's an exciting player dynamic. He's got that that I love the receivers once. Earth that change of circumstance that guests him into the offense to see regular snaps. He has an opportunity to produce. Until then I see nothing more than a utility player and somebody that you can draft a bit higher if you also get special team. A special teams return yardage and touchdowns but both those players are similar in that they're going to require a change of circumstance in order to fully be valued and their best opportunities. Probably GonNa come either when Watkins leads or when Madison gets his opportunity to start somewhere.

‘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..

"You should have cash on fan duel and on draftkings, but I'm gonna give you some stuff. That's coming up this for this weekend's late on Sunday that I like. Running back is where I'm going to start. This is going to be a great week for running backs. Now, we all know Todd Gurley Alvin Kamara those players, but you're going to be able to get cheap running backs that may go ballistic this this weekend, I want I want to start off with king and Drake. Remember Kenyan Drake in Miami. Drake may run for. Two hundred yards and two touchdowns this weekend. Kenyan Drake should be used in every bodies lineup this weekend. Everybody. Tenny heels play good Oakland is horrible against the run. I just think he's gonna go nuts. In this weekend's game against Oakland. Oakland right now is given up one hundred fifty four yards a game rushing. Kenyan Drake should have huge game. This week. Next running back. I'm gonna give you. Kevin Coleman when Tevin Coleman gets value. Excuse me value. He always gives you great value last week. He gave you fifteen minutes fantasy points without a touchdown tavern Coleman. And you Lana him thinking and Drake are the two running backs that are lower price running backs who should have great weeks. Also, I like Howard from Chicago against Arizona. I don't think Allen Robinson's. Go have the typical game that he's been having because I think Patrick Patrick Peterson is gonna shut them down. So I think they're gonna use how're Cohen and Burton as their main weapons Howard may work one hundred thirty with two touchdowns maybe four or five catches. Last one. I mean, let me give you two other ones that you need to you need to watch. All right. Give you three one watch the situation in mental dude Alvin cook if Davin cook does not play which I think he's not going to play because they're playing buffalo. And if he's injured just a little bit. They don't need him to beat buffalo. If he doesn't play latavius Murray. He's going to be key. He's to put up big numbers. The tables Murray if Davos doesn't play. And and geo Bernard Giovanni Bernard in Cincinnati when he gets value. He always delivers he played big last year at this time with mixing without mixing is definitely out. So look at him. Okay. And then lastly Corey. Philadelphia. I think all the running backs. I just named for you are going to be reasonably priced. In fact, I know Howard and Coleman is like I think seventy three seventy four hundred dollars on pan. Duelling Drake is like six thousand eight hundred. I think federal so all these all these guys are gonna be lower price running backs in all of them. Should have. Literally have. A chance to to to make some money because everybody's gonna go for girly. Everybody's gonna go for Gordon. Everybody's gonna go Kamara. I don't think Gordon is gonna have that great of a game. They shouldn't. He should be faded. Girly. What is office alignment is hurt? But he just got his his left tackle back. So he may you'll have a decent game against the chargers. Camara is probably gonna have a really good game against Lanta, but I'm gonna fade him this weekend to because I think you can get the same value or more by getting these three these three running backs and your lineup of both sites. I mean, you can put through running backs to in regular positions wanna flex. The lineups will be up on the WBZ show dot com around five o'clock. Five PM eastern today. Questions asked me the questions right now on Facebook periscope. And I'll just somebody's talking about Ecuador. I do like in the game against the Rams, I do especially over on draftkings not necessarily fan duel. But on draftkings, I think he may end up with tenants will quite catches just like Chris Thompson Thomas of a Washington overall draftkings. I love him. I think he's gonna end up catching eight or nine balls over there. So I I I love Thompson at Washington draftkings. See this is the thing that I'm trying to get you guys to understand specifically draftkings is a one point p PR fan duel is a half a point. So a fan duel. You want touchdowns you don't need the receiving that much over on draftkings. You can play a Chris Thompson or? And then give you fifteen fantasy points based on their receptions. They'll have to score a touchdown. But over on fan duel that same fifteen points ends up being seven and a half seven points. That's a huge difference. So if any other questions about him. Any other any other questions about any of the players? You can let me know. Now, I wanna talk a little bit about defenses. Right. So I told you guys on Thursday play Cleveland defense. Play Chicago's defense play Minnesota defense. Well, Cleveland's defense is Chicago's is you have Chicago. A minnesota. I also like the Jacksonville defense this weekend to as well. I like I like the the Jacksonville defense with. So those will be the three defense is I would be playing when it comes to your quarterbacks you need to try to anticipate game. All right. Now, what game flow is basically. Who's gonna be in a position where they have to throw the football. Those are the teams you wanna pick their their quarterback their receipts. So when you look at a game, let's say hypothetically like Atlanta in New Orleans that game maybe a shootout. So both of those quarterbacks may be throwing a lot all they receivers may be getting a lot of catches. Okay. Zeke somebody's asking about Zeke, Elliot, I I love the especially on the on your regligious fantasy leagues. But on the at I don't mess with Zeke, Elliot, and the reason why is because they have no other outfits so everybody who plays Dallas right now is keen on Zeke Zeke hasn't had a ballistic game yet because they ain't got nobody that can take the eight people or nine people out of the box. So as much as I I love the and I have them in my regular fantasy. Holy when when I'm playing the weekly fan duel the draftkings, I don't even I don't even look at Zeke allocate who is playing. I don't even look at. If you got other questions, let me know we're up against commercial break, he listened to the WB..

"When Tevin Coleman value. Excuse me value. He always gives you great value last week. He gave you fifteen fantasy points without a touchdown. Get in Coleman and Yolanda him inking and Drake either two running backs that are lower priced running backs who should have great weeks. Also, I like Howard from Chicago against Zona. I don't think Allen Robinson's. Go have the typical game that he's been having because I think Patrick Patrick Peterson is gonna shut them down.

Just like Chris Thompson Thomas a Washington alone draftkings. I love him. I think he's gonna end up catching eight or nine balls over there. So I love Thompson for Washington on draftkings. See this is the thing that I'm trying to get you guys to understand specifically draftkings is a one point p PR fan dulas a half a point. So a fan duel. You want touchdowns you don't need the receiving that much over on draftkings. You can play a Chris Thompson or Exeter. Can give you fifteen fantasy points based on on their receptions.
