"Sorry. Social media 19 on the game. Get me up at J. M c H 316 on the Twitter machine that Dylan hanging out there with us here. W We'll talk to our buddy Sekou Smith coming up with a 20. After what was a busy hawks offseason. We'll talk some hawks basketball community the top of the hour. As O. But we just got them. Excuse me with our weekly conversation with Tori McElhaney and Falcons Raiders coming up on Sunday. Um, you know is this stretch run of this lost and disaster of a season, you know? I'll say it like this. They should just shut down Dante Fowler. At this point, I understand they paid him a lot of money. Understanding wants to play. Understand? I understand all those things, folks okay in teaching me and telling me nothing. Shut his ass down. This is not working out. It's a lost season. He's not going to provide us a him trying to play through hamstrings and all that. It hasn't worked. It's not gonna work. And he's gonna be here next year. He's another guy who Way too much dead money and way too much money involved for the idea of him being gone from the night focus Now, as I said, though, Very much. Next year is do or die for Dante Fowler, but shut him down. What? What? What is he going to give you if he's already gonna be here? What's he going to give you the last six weeks of the season at this point? There's there's nothing That if he's trying to play through Hampshire, he's only making it worse. Shut him down. That's what I don't get. And even if he told me shut Julio, down, Fine. Shut Julio, down. What's the point? I understand in the look We talk about tanking and things like that. Okay. You can't put quit on tape. Okay? I said, I say this all the time. You can't quit on your coaches and put that on tape. And think that you're going to get a job but trying to play through injury. Not like you're hurt, but play through injury. And you're hurting your team. More than you're helping. Your team doesn't make any sense. That's not good for the franchise. So you have a couple of guys. Dante Fowler. It's been a lost season. There's nothing Dante Fowler can do at this point to recapture any magic of the signing in the off season. You know, I liked it. I was excited. Maybe not. You know my number one choice but okay nonetheless, so fine. He's here and I'm except let's get but it's been in lost season and he can't do anything at this point. The salvage it so Put him on I r and call it a day. But this every week of its cove it it's my hamstring. It's my ankle. Okay? Those are things that don't just hell on a week to week basis. You have a high ankle sprain or hamstring issue? You need weeks. And even when you think you're 100% you take another week off regiment, Michael. Now you start with some time if you've got a high ankle sprain. And you think you're ready to play? You sit out another week. No, that didn't help the Falcons and 2012. I think it was when John Abraham You know, try to push through got through to the final game of the year and enough tweaking that That high ankle sprain again and miss the playoffs again. I mean, You know it, Z just Anyway, It's been a very frustrating demanding season. When you look at this matchup between these two teams, you know is we're talking about story. This is this is one of the best rushing teams in the NFL in the Raiders, their top tier yards team. They're a top tier yards per carry team, the average almost 4.5 yards per carry, so they move people off the ball. You know how the Falcons condemn. Fend things up front is going to be a real key to this game. Because what what the Raiders do off of that is Derek Carr has been very accurate. This year. He's Pushing toward almost 70% academic. He's think he's fourth in the NFL and accuracy and I think it's 19 touchdowns. The only three interceptions you know on the season and when you have a quarterback who has given you Over six touchdowns to every interception. That's that's as good as you could ask for, you know, in the NFL that's being very protective of the football and everything feeds off that running game. We know Jon Gruden wants to run it, so you know how they stop and slow down the run. And they take that away. You know, defensively, I don't know. You know I don't I at this point, I don't know. And I'd even say that if the Falcons confined away To stop the rush. And then they get enough pressure on car. You know, Part of. I think Taysom Hill was the fact that When you have a guy that's in experience that playing quarterback you can use that against him, you know, from Holding the ball too long. This that the other so I can understand where the three sex come from. Also add in the fact that when a guy thinks he can make every play imaginable with his legs, he runs himself into sacks. And I think when you look at a guy like Taysom Hill and say, Okay, why did they have success? You know, three sacks last week. Sometimes that's also your quarterback. You know, part of why the Saints had eight sacks against the Falcons is because Matt held the ball too long. You know, it wasn't just the offensive line getting blown off and no time. There were times when Matt held onto it too long. I understand. He's trying to make a play. You're down. You're trying to get something going off it. I understand it completely. But reality is still that there were times when it should have been. Just ditch it and go. Live to fight another down without losing tons of down and distance for so how the Falcons can stop the run. Now Todd Gurley is officially out. For this game, which means it, Brian Hill. Anita Smith and I'm assuming Qadri Allyson gets called. I don't even know what this point. I mean, Honestly, I mean between Qadri Alison indeed, Jin Soo not. I mean, you know, I think we all had high hopes for those guys and I don't know what either one of those players is. At this point, I literally Don't know what either one of those guys is. But And Brian. He'll be effective. His look. And now it all keys on him Now. Now, all eyes are on him. He's not kind of spelling girlies. Not kind of, you know that change of pace guy or whatever, you know. Just a different kind of look, you know out of it now He's got to be the guy. Can he be enough of a factor in both the run game and the past game? And that's the thing I keep asking every week is okay. When do we start getting running? Backs involved? The passing game? Oh, we're not. Okay. All right. Well, then. I guess we're not getting running back to the passing game. That's been definitely one of the things that definitely been. One of the things that has been frustrating this year is the lack of running backs in The passing game and look Other part of it is to Hayvenhurst, a nurse, you know, has His best game is Atlanta Falcon, and then last week, it's two targets that don't even have a catch in the game, got to find a way to get him in the office with Julio without Julio. I don't care. He's got to be an important part off their office. He's got to be a guy who can Make the linebackers and make the safeties have to try to cover somebody over the middle of feel. If I can stretch the field with Julio and Ridley on the outside, can I get gaijin Hearst Underneath, you know, or in between and gets them first downs out of it that way..

"You know the fact that he's got to be out there in you know standing out in the sun after as you're going through all this sort of stuff and constantly in the elements, you know how much time people are spending inside just don't do bubbles when they're out there practicing at their facilities in getting together and everything you're but it's one of those things. That it's just it's going to be now forever for Ron Rivera in for a guy that spends God knows what seventy percent of his life outside during the season you know and I guess really throughout the year with all the stuff that you gotta do it's just going to be something that's GonNa be hanging over his head forever I again gotta give him credit. He's. He's just one game. He's doing a great job considering. A new system there with a quarterback he didn't draft getting a win in week. One is always good thing. All right, Mike, both of our teams lost. In probably at least I know for me I assume for you head slamming against the wall fashion. The Falcons put up I think like five hundred yards of offense but couldn't score against Seattle nor could they stop Seattle put up twenty-five but still and then the niners I'm really not getting get into it other than Jimmy Garoppolo is average at best maybe slightly above average. Between Philadelphia, the niners Atlanta and maybe the cowboys who are Kinda SORTA in it but not really in who put up the because dud for you I know again we one we're we're over analyzing everything, but we've been missing sports what we do. I mean not counting if you're out of the browns and the jets class and you're looking at a that could be borderline playoff teams or teams like San. Francisco that very much. Consider themselves. Playoff teams you know to me the biggest egg laid was probably San Francisco with Arizona coming back on them because the reality is is Atlanta on paper when you look at a healthy Dion Jones and you look at a healthy Kiana O.`Neil Grady Jarrett. Tack, McKinley on the outside, and then obviously the offense when the Matt Ryan and Julio Jones and. Calvin Ridley on the other side on paper if you're playing madden and you have the ratings, they're fantastic. But the reality is an execution. The problem comes with sealing the deal and this has been a stench over the era of Atlanta in San Francisco for several years. Now now does that stench go right to Shanahan? One could say that you know but Shanahan's not there in Atlanta anymore Atlanta had this problem last year Dan Quinn was was was doing the play calling they. They gave it back to dirk cutter last the end of last year it was much improved. They basically save Dan Quinn's job there but you know they have problems driving the point home and they have problems sealing the deal in scoring touchdowns when they need to you know and and making plays when they have to you know when you have to go for it on fourth down three times at some point, you're going to have to nail one of those Atlanta didn't. Get either one and when you let Russell Wilson go out there. You know go eleven for eleven to start and just completely dominate ya I mean you know I it was it was a rough road to hoe and I know we're going to be pushing up break here in a little bit and we'll get into San Francisco in Arizona and a minute but you know one for four in the red zone and two thirteen on third and fourth downs a and they just they let that game away and you're looking at more problems a wide receiver with Richard James going down but we can talk about that after the break. Hold that just kidding Yeah. So we have A, we have a minute before the break todd. Gurley is a player I refuse to draft in my fantasy leagues just I'm not any todd Gurley guy, how did he do because I didn't admittedly I didn't look was he spry? Was He beatdown Gurley? Was He? Okay he he looked pretty good i. mean you know fifty six? Russia's on fourteen yards. The biggest problem is going to be. That offensive line you know, but the thing is they're not going to necessarily want him. They're going to institute a lot of Brian Hill Anita Smith which they also did to give him spells you know so he's not going to be relied on to do a lot of the heavy lifting but they're gonNA have to do is with those three backs much like San Francisco did last year they're going to have to figure out a way to get them instituted because the Ryan to Julio Jones combination again it's fantastic when it works but everybody knows it's coming at all times. That is Mike Zimmer v the wrestling observer live. We got more with Mike on the other side, our top five I like to call list thinking we'll see if I stick with that or if I think of something else during the break, I'm Dominic Jimenez. He's Mike Zimmer v this is too many.

"Your lineup big contrast from team six team six was heats. That was the Thomas Kill Robinson Cooper team, this team did not draft wide receiver until round four. So this is what your team might look like Jamie starting lineup, Mahomes Dalvin Cook and Nick, Chubb with Leonard Fournette at the flex terror maclaurin Devante Parker and either deontay Johnson or sterling shepherd and He's got Chris Herndon or jared cook at tight end. So very, very different strategies in Herndon and cook whereas last two picks Ben Ben with team four. Alvin Kamara Chris Godwin can golladay where your first three picks. Let's talk about the rest of your team. Took Jonathan Taylor late in the fourth this time around in an early draft season, there's time for taking early in the third and I've mentioned on the show a couple times. It's not that move Taylor down or stopped in some forum in terms of the running backs it's more just a positional shift that I've had that I had throughout the summer where I really WANNA target receivers in these middle rounds. and. He's depicted kind of the the turning point of this team where then I get digs who I really like in the fifth I get landry in the six. We don't know how healthy Landry's going to be I wind up getting harden and Harry a little later. Those are two upset receivers I love and if either of them hits and Hartman already might be on his way I won't really mind that Landry pick as my flexible much but. Kind of the point is taking, Taylor their cost me the dominant receivers all the way through to my flex that I have on some of my other rosters and. I think you need that if you're not going to be dominated rb to so either Taylor has to be a monster. Or I got I have to get you know hardman or Harry to to hit late but I I don't hate it but it is a little bit of a different look for me where I'm less comfortable with how deep my receivers are. Let look into playing Zach Mawson's reflects I. Know that's not something you would prefer but if he's the best running back in Buffalo, then that's a steal and runs. His rb to begin the year. I, liked the late round running back Zach. Moss Washington Benny Stella. Anita Smith I like all those guys I. WanNa ask you because this is we did another Jaffa, this a non PR draft which will be on the site on Friday. You're still prioritizing Washington over there Williams even though the aren't doing the same. Yeah Williams like two hundred. Twenty five, hundred and thirty pound back I think he he has the most familiarity with the offense I. Think he's probably going to have a role and I still like him I mean right when this news first broke, the demon will opt out I said he's probably GonNa want to be in the best value but Washington's a guy who was very good n- Oakland. Last year can catch passes played with Mahomes Yada. Yada in college, Yada Yada Yada I think he's the guy that has like upside if Edward Seller is not really a great guy he's the guy that could be the past catcher in the Damian Williams type so it was more like ceiling in his weekly outputs. I the only question I had about this team and I think you hit on it and the importance of Jonathan Taylor I was surprised with Taylor as your number two that six through eight range retook. Murray. Moss hardman an Indie Andrei. Washington even did you consider a running back like Rico and or somebody? You could definitely start week one yeah. I think in hindsight the Landry pick is probably where I would do that because I ended up with Hartman and Harry and though these upside guys. Vita them hits they're going to start overland religious going to be a bench guys on this roster and at Subset Landry. But this almost should have been an even more running back tim where I in round six before I went with cuyler or not take kyle around seven. Don't don't take an early quarterback earliest quarterback and get a running back there. One of those spots I agree I think that guy like what it made sense here right. So it was taking remotes turnover Jarvis Landry. I probably would've went calling but most I, think. Maybe. Yeah I mean maybe actually we can make sure. Oh. Yeah. That's your. That we talk, right Right. So Ben with the fourth pick went Kamara Godwin golladay Jonathan Taylor. Stefan digs, and then he went Jarvis Landry as his fourth receiver but he's thinking maybe should've taken to Rico in their cuyler Murray as his quarterback Blake Darwin and TJ Hopkinson tight end. So late, tight ends here. But this was a team that started running back wide receiver wide receiver running back. and He's thinking maybe since Jonathan Taylor little risky at rb to maybe instead of taking that fourth wide receiver around six, you grabbed to recall when you grab someone that you're more comfortable starting as you are to. Season or just do what I normally do in taking on the receiver I. Mean I probably would've taken DJ chart there and then with Landry Becoming Cohen probably like that roster more instead of Jonathan Taylor said you take Dj jerk. Okay You got to have Jonathan Taylor. They'll come on I. Mean if you do it at twelve team league where you have three of the teams and you don't have Jonathan Taylor and something wrong. Dave with the third pick Zeke. Dissected this team? This is the very running back heavy team. Zeke. Hopkins Gordon Metcalf. He's he's trading most or single terry. Wilson the can we skip this team like you? You hate this team and you clearly hate the next team we're ready to talk about. So I think maybe we should just a few minutes on which team you hate more. I think I hate. I think I hate team. Three more than team for a really to you excuse to. Eighteen to more than team three. I like team. Three is the worst threes. I would trade my team and it's got. Guys I. Love. Giving Dave three running backs and started. All right. So he team to was three running backs to start Barclay Connor Carson. Hilton, Keenan Allen Eshelman Evan.

"The Nita Smith Murder Investigation had now stretched from Durham to Greensboro where detective Sean paint was now talking to Shannon Crawley's colleague at the nine one, one call center. He said Shannon had been getting a lot of disturbing personal phone calls at work. He said Jamir Strahl would call all the time. and. I. Want to speak to her. This is going back months that no months months months. And one one particular case she says I'm calling. And fear my life, I'm scared I. Don't know what he might do to me. He's shown up at my house and he has a gun with him at all times. Co worker was concerned and wanted to help it gets to the point that he offered to sell her gun which he did. He named the exact model and tells me that he gave her bullets to accompany the gun and offer to teach how to use it. What kind of gun it was a thirty eight caliber A. Revolver. On the same type of gun detectives thought they need as killer might have used you know wait a minute. I just finished an interview with her five minutes ago. She told me I never owned a gun and in that same interview I do you think that Jamir is capable of murder and she said no, not at all. Just like that. No. Not at all. But you're telling a CO worker that you're in fear for your life from Jimmy. Conflicting stories that cast suspicion on Shannon and on Jamir. So that next day, detective paint spoke with Jamir Stroud once again. He. Ever harassing Shannon at work. And said, there was no reason why she would be afraid of him but you're Mir's answer to one particular question got detective paints attention. Asked him do you think that Shannon is capable of killing someone said? Yes. As the investigation continued in Durham. Lee showed Shannon Crawley's photo to that maintenance man. Seen. A woman driving away from the crime scene on the morning of the murder. And he could not identify Shannon as the driver. Then they showed him a picture of Shannon's Burgundy Ford Explorer. He was very positive about the vehicle he said Yep that's the vehicle that I saw. And that wasn't the only thing we'll witness noticed says Assistant Da David sacks remember a patch or something you know on the shirt. A patch like on the uniform Shannon war as a nine one one dispatcher. And there was more investigators discovered Shannon clocked in at about ten am some two hours after Danita. Smith had been murdered more than enough time for the fifty five mile drive from Durham to her job at the nine one one center in Greensboro. So police obtained a search warrant for Shannon's house. And we do find a Greensboro communication non one. Center. Uniforms. And they are exactly as described by the maintenance supervisor down to the color of the patch and the shape you find a gun no gun was found no bullets were found nothing incriminating other than than that. And then came this Shayna had told police she had never been to Durham but her cellphone records clearly indicated she had been they're. Not on the day the it was killed Shannon or at least her fall, and then there the day before. She was hitting the towers replaced her no less than one hundred feet away from where to Nita would be found dead the next morning and you think what's going on they're. Thinking it's recon. Shannon showed up a day early to find out exactly which apartment the needle lived in you have to know. When to be there place to stand. Without looking suspicious because if you just linger for hours someone's GonNa say you don't even live here. What what are you doing? Elise also checked your mere stroud cell phone and police. Radio. And found, he was nowhere near Durham that day before the killing. Only, Shanna. So police impounded her SUV. We did gunshot residue of tests on a car strain wave gear shift or comes back there is gunshot resident. And if all that didn't look bad enough Shannon's alibi now started to fall apart. She told her supervisor and the Tech Dibs. She was taking her child to the doctor at the time of the NITA's murder. But the pediatrician told police. She Annan didn't show up that day. The story starts to unravel nothing is at an. Shannon was looking like a prime suspect, but one thing was missing motive. Then detective paint remembered Shannon's account of how she and Jamir had decided that she would have an abortion. And the way she told the story made an impression on pate when Shannon said Jamir I'm pregnant. What are we going to do? He said I don't want to have a baby with you. He told me that's how he said it in. She could have been back to me verbatim. When she said I remember those words not just I don't. WanNa have a baby or I don't want to have a baby right now I don't WanNa have a baby with you. I imagine that's just a little bit of her soul out. Is that your motivation right there I think that's what a seed was planted. I really do. Because that implies that there's someone else that you would like to have a child with. Maybe. Someone like Jamir Fiance Anita Smith. Detective pay now thought Shannon Crawley had the means the opportunity and the motive to commit murder. And they got to the point. We we thought this is all we're going to get right now and it's more than enough. Well wasn't enough police had no. DNA. No fingerprints no murder weapon and no forensics at the crime scene that linked chanted Anita's murder. But detective Pete was also thinking about the Nita's family. The family is suffering. Let's go ahead and give them a little piece right now. Five days after need Smith's murder detective, pate drove back to Greensboro with a warrant to arrest Channon Crawley. She and her children were staying at her sister's house when police arrived. Shannon comes up they cover she walks out the door. As though she's going to check the mail paid says, Shannon did not seem surprised to see. There's no no sad lok or anything like that. She gets to the end of the driveway. She looks at her family says, raise them like they're your own. Well. Those are the words of a woman who does not expect to be raising your own children. Exactly. Shannon's family watched their daughter be cuffed and taken away. More upsetting. I was angry. I was afraid for her annoying my heart that. My daughter could never ever. Have done. Shannon was just twenty eight. She'd never been in trouble with the law. Now, she was being charged with first degree murder and could face life in prison. When she arrived at the police station Shannon was again cool and calm. And had little to say. Except this to detective eight. I didn't do this. What you need to worry about where Jamir was when this happened. There were a lot of feelings were shared. So they start talking again exactly Jamir had said his affair with Shannon was over was it but he was always there for Santa's if Shannon was distraught or wanted to call in the middle of the night, he call him and he would put up with it. You wanted to come back the wanted her to come back to him and she did he was so possessive..

"Killed Anita Smith left very little evidence behind no fingerprints. No DNA. No murder weapon. But during the autopsy, the medical examiner did find one thing. The bullet that killed. Police now hope that mangled slug might provide a lead on who pulled the trigger. Of Gun killed any Smith while we can say is that the bullets self was in the family of had enough weight to be a thirty eight caliber round. By Mail Denise death was big news across Durham Durham investigators say the shooting was not a random act. Assistant District Attorney David Sacks was keeping a close eye on this now high profile case one that he might actually prosecute. If a killer was ever caught. It was so obvious that it was not a robbery and so if she was targeted for some reason, there was a very, very, very, very limited number of people who would target the Nita for something like this and Jamir certainly could have been one of 'em. Jamir Strand VANITA SMITH'S FIANCE The alibi he had was an ironclad. Greensboro police officer and we could verify that he was had worked the night before. But at the time that this occurred, we knew that he was off so it certainly could have been possible for him to do this on the day of the murder Stroud had revealed a police his romance with Shannon Crawl at the woman who owned an SUV similar in model and color.

We saw there was blood coming from her head, but we didn't know if that was from the fall because she was at the bottom of fairly large staircase. She had her purse, she had water bottle dipstick keys, that kind of thing all coming down the staircase and first thing I'm wondering is, was there a struggle to anyone touched? This evidence was her wallet they're there while it was there it identified her. That's how we realized who she was and money in. It must have been because I. didn't think it was a robbery edith who knew none of this rush to the NITA's Belva. where she hoped to find her close friend.

keys for the second half or to protect the quarterback stop the counter and clean up special teams ads for both quarterbacks he said there is a possibility we could see both again second half regardless who is out there he wants to see them have more time and be protected he thinks that would make a difference for this offense he can't be happy to be with the way that is offense played there since back to back long touchdown drive point miss he'll goal for Oklahoma state in the first time the Tom Hutton funded it went seventeen yards shaking it off with his left foot the twenty nine

"Rams joining me as always is my co host and fellow writer at the Alchoholic Evan Burchfield Eh not good and I imagined find folks listening right now aren't doing well either so how are you doing Gavin you well I drink through it so I'm not as bad as I think this is easily I've been watching the falcons since nineteen eighty for the most part and I will say this is one of the worst falcons performances I've seen in recent months sorry so that tells you about how was for those who don't know if you're listening to this the Falcons did lose they lost thirty seven it's a ten to the Los Angeles Rams who came in on the three game losing streak came in with Todd Gurley forming to par Jared Goff struggling of course the ill the solution to many ills in the NFL is to face the Falcons defense The thirty seven thirty ten because last seven points came off of a special teams turnover but really weekly this was just a debacle of a game and it was a debacle of a game the Dan Quinn needed I think to to be able save his job and I think we're at the point where there are a lot of fans asking if Arthur blank can even wait for the end of the season Zain or even the bye week which is just one week away we have one more game until the bye week so evident just real quick with your quick thoughts about this game about what happened today against the rams well it was weird Matt Ryan for the Din Watch Matt Ryan left with a ankle injury sorry where Dwi doing this for like literally minutes after the game ended so by the time you're listening to this it may be known what the injury actually is but he was looking hobbled walking into the backstage or whatever you call it and devante freeman a fight with Aaron Donald it was a weird game yeah and like you said that lasts seven points a lot of folks probably thought the game ended ended thirty ten to thirty because it came with in less than thirty seconds left so a lot of folks probably just shut the game off in assume the final score was ten to thirty but it is ten thirty seven and it's rough in you know I know we'll dive deeper into it but my wife initial thoughts were in the first half I thought the defense wasn't terrible we got we got some like the foil Lucon what was it roughing the passer that really wasn't he he hit often like it was it was if it was thirty years ago it was as clean tech spoke at the hit as you can get on a quarterback in he fell on him because the NFL wants US to be able to somehow if you hit the quarterback rotate your body off of them which is pretty impossible to do so in the defense I thought did well in the first half You know let me look right here I believe it was the only thirteen the rams only had thirteen in the first yeah the rams halftime the rams only had thirteen points which to me is a win considering the what we saw from the defense's sheer but in the second half they pretty much just showed the you know old falcons defense were used to season showed up at halftime and we I pretty much got blown out so yeah what did you have any other thoughts in out John Yeah I mean I think you hit a lot of the big thing for me is this is the first game at home after you know being on the road for a couple of weeks it was against a team that you know coming in the head had lost three in a row they were struggling jared Goff as as a QB is someone that you know is not as mobile as some of the quarterbacks we faced in the past few weeks so if there if the Falcons pass rush was gonNA finally come alive this should have been the game they the I have an offensive line that has struggled and they also have a QB who does not do elegance blitz and yet again falcons did not register a single sack in this game I think that is four straight games now and they have five on the season after seven games which is gonNA have to spell this out that is dismal that is beyond bad that is arguably bottom of the league and enough to get a defensive coordinator fired so happens the defensive coordinator for this team is also the head coach so let's talk about the offense because this was I think an area of big frustration the last two games they've played well you know this skirt scored thirty plus points in the past couple of games today they score ten points against the rams defense which arguably has much better playmakers you've got Aaron Donald you've got Dante Fowler who got three sacks in this game you've got a Jalen Ramsey who artfully do not even have a great game Julio was burning repeatedly and that was sort of the the story this game is a falcons offense could not get anything going with just ten points on Award Matt Ryan before he was injured and we'll talk about that in a little bit sixteen of Twenty seven for one hundred fifty nine yards zero touchdowns and one fluky tale interception a screen pass Disa- knew that bounced off his hands in yourself did devante Freeman seven carries nineteen yards receiving Julio Jones six receptions ninety three yards led the day Austin Hooper four forty six in the touchdown just not a whole lot going against this rams defense which I will remind folks the bucks scored for thirty plus points against just a few weeks ago on the road so what do you make of this falcons offense and only scoring ten points against rams defensive has struggled in recent weeks yeah it's a shame because you know what you were mentioning about Ramsey Julio Jones actually had like solid day he would have had a much better one but the times he did be Ryan Debbie Ramsey Ryan just over three limor it just didn't they didn't connect there whatever Ryan I think this is the first game this season where he didn't have over three hundred yards pretty sure that's correct because he finished with one fifty three I believe one fifty nine I believe every game before this he's had three hundred which I believe sorta record I remember seeing or seven would have been record but yet it's night and day compared to what we saw last week if you listen to last week's podcast asked me into Dwi were pretty much talking up the Falcons offense you know even though they lost they points on the board everybody pretty much did their job CBS it just came down to the defense against the Arizona cardinals in that's why we lost that game this game totally different falcons win in the half time with Mike Three points I think it was thirteen to three a half time it's just you know in in the only touchdown came I think was like what towards the end Shaw hit Hooper Matt Shaab like had like a perfect game when he came anyone six for six sixty five yards edge down hundred and fifty one point four quarterback rating like he looked solid it was weird weird game in Hooper's actually I catch I think came towards the I think it was like a minute thirty five in the third quarter so the first half almost the first three quarters you can say he wasn't he uninvolved it's a shame because I mean like you said the rams defense has struggled but we are a get right game as you've mentioned in the rams outright in good for them but you know I think the narrative at least during the game if you listen to the announcers was like Ramsey was like you know stopping Julio and stuff which if you watch the game wasn't the case Julio's Constantly Getting Open Matt Ryan didn't see him or overthrew or any still finished with six catches for ninety three yards like Rio jobs did Leo Gentleman's so I wouldn't let I wouldn't let a Ramsey narrative you know bother you or anything but yeah but you know Freeman getting injected certainly didn't help he I mean he that's a pretty good games lately any finish today with seven carries nineteen yards so we didn't really have a commitment to the run game You know Brian Hill came in. carries eleven yards there really was no run game in Anita Smith we're hoping he's okay he had one carry for seven yards in he left with a concussion on a lose it pass coverage or whatever I think he got rolled or something and he him with the helmet contact knocked him out early in the game and and I think some fans we're gonNA rightfully look at this and say why is some Kenyan Barner active in ironically Barner had a good games day returning ball while Oh you know your your draft pick allison is sitting on the bench and you know it's it's hard to predict that you're gonNA lose your your top two running accent game and be forced to go with your third running back and you know Brian Hill did well enough in in the circumstances but it I think we're at the point with Falcons where they're moves with the guys who are active versus inactive or the big issue here it's not what's keeping the team from winning Whether or not you have matt go no active versus ties umbro is not going to be the difference between thirty seven and ten in you being the rams in this game it's pretty clear dirt covered doesn't have an offense for good off does not have a plan for good defense this is he does not have a plan for a pass rush can get to Ryan which they did all game long with guys like Dante Fowler and Aaron Donald and when it comes to the offense that is where you've spent a lot of your money in the off season you spent your first two first round draft picks to fix this offensive line and obviously cannot you can't put too much blame on your your your first round pick out for injury Chris Lindstrom and Kayla mcgarry is a rookie he's struggling right tackle and that was bound to happen because I said tough position the NFL but still you you've spent all of this draft capital on your offense you've got Julio Jones Matt Ryan Awesome Hooper Calvin Ridley what's new and you score ten points in it's not the first time this has happened so I I don't think that gets a free pass here because Dan queen the stinking up the joint if anything in my opinion Dirk Koetter deserves as much blame for fielding an offense it's been wildly inconsistent incredibly uncreative in the place that we've seen on the field and today it was so bad that's it got Matt Ryan Injured Matt Ryan was in the boot after the game which a is the first time since two thousand nine this quarterback has put up with some absolute garbage over the years and this is arguably one of the absolute worst seasons that we've seen him have to put up with in that includes I think even two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen which were some disastrous seasons so any fun will fought I mean for me it's the defense played better to write home about I thought they played better but for me the offense really was the big story in this one that they're just their inability to protect Ryan their inability to score their inability to do anything do you have any final thoughts.

You're benches stacked otherwise the bridge as fallen down Dede Westbrook zero. I don't know with with Gartner minhsiu there. That could be bad C. E. Row is your miss. I'm going to say five. I'm because of Menchu Dion Lewis Tuna Dion Lewis Tate Kenyan drake ten. No you can't drop drake well. What are you doing with Kenyan drake? You're you're getting mad added hip every week. You're going to put him on your bench and you're going to say why is he on my bench. Maybe zero to ten seriously undertake for all right guys. Let's do quarterbacks here who to pick up in week. One so Josh Allen and Matthew Stafford Andy Dalton Derek Carr Marcus Mariota Jacoby perset and Gardner Minhsiu are the six they obviously are not all on on the same plane here Jamie. I think you said Josh Allens the only guy that you'd WanNa start this week. Yes I don't have them ranked as a starter but he's close okay. Josh Allen Fifty eight percent owns at the giants. We know about their defense. Do you think Matthew Stafford at forty seven percent on he had thirty three vantage points at Arizona. I mean do you think he's just in general general a guy that we could be starting not necessarily this week against the chargers but you know going forward. I would streaming not starting yet. I I think I've gone back and forth on him and Dalton as a short-term solution. If you're if you're stuck because I think Dalton especially don't mix there is going to throw fifty times like we saw again and he has has the better matchup this week. does this go back to back row games. They're not going home so I see Dalton having a decent game as well but I think you saw your fifty one task Dempsey gets you at twenty four fantasy points. No that's kind of I think the game that he's going to have to have if John Ross keeps us up though he's going to be very good yeah yeah sure Derek Carr against Kansas City not terrible. He's he's. He's a great daily plight. he's GonNa be a great to quarterback play again. I don't know how many people are gonNA need to start game in week number two but I do think you're GonNa see chasing points and as we saw from mint you you can get to that twenty the point threshold in that scenario. Would you start Derek Carr over Mitchell trubisky at Denver yes would you start him over a good Garoppolo yes yes okay and then interesting. One is James yet Thursday Carolina right susp offer MHM so what would you do car James. I James Writer Marcus Mariota Jacoby perset. They are widely available noble. Do we see long-term appeal in either of these guys. They're facing each other this week. Mario temper set if if every team playing Tennessee gives the game away like the browns rounds did than Mario is going to have a great year. I don't think that's going to happen. I think we've Seen Marianas best game. We haven't seen percents best game but neither one of these guys we're GONNA be interesting I would have I would rather have their car and Jameis Winston had both of them. I agree with that but I do think that if you get sixteen games out of Mar Yoda it's GonNa be fun to see him have games like this because it wasn't pretty game I mean he got a seventy five yard. Touchdown on a screen pass their carry How many times can you expect that to happen but AJ Brat looks to be like a deep good depot threaten and Delaney Walkers obviously going to be somebody that's GonNa help them all over the field especially in the red zone so I think Mario and two quarterback leagues? You should feel happy that you just him if this is the case and again if he stays healthy we've seen him that he could be a decent fantasy. Object gets hot at times and this could be the start of hot streak could match up against Colts guardmen cashew starting quarterback so there's that any played well scored twenty one fantasy points against chiefs three incompletions drop candidates kirk cousins and and Jimmy Garoppolo who I just can't help but think man like if those touchdown passes to kitto counted we'd be talking differently about him but they didn't and then Mitchell trubisky Isky. Are they bus drops. Are they like only if you need your driver Bisky as I think all three I'd rather have Josh Allen over same same Stafford to okay running backs all right so what we talked about ten to fifteen percent of your fab on and on Ronald Jones may be Chris Thompson is in that range Giovanni Bernard but were not necessarily breaking the Bank for any of these guys but priority number one is. Go well. It's got if you're the mixing owner it's jail and hopefully we'll have some more information later tonight about mixing injury but there is a possibility that GIO is a one week Iras zero we but remember two games without Joe Mixing last year he was grain. Both of 'em Seventeen touches a AH Carolina nineteen touches at Atlanta nineteen or more fantasy points. Npr I think in both games yes so very good and scored three touchdowns touchdowns three rushing touchdowns in those two games. He Gets San Francisco this week then he's at buffalo than Pittsburgh all right so there's Gio which is kind of a tough call Chris Thompson Ronald Jones already had had that discussion with Jamie takes. Take us through some of this list here like the first half of it and just your thoughts on the guys that you anticipate going to be added tonight. I mean I think a year to see clearly crowder and Brown not not order Brown then crowder added Markeith Brown for searches because of where he's coming from a twenty nine percent and like David to you didn't have to do very much because he played less than twenty snaps in only had five tarts so it'd be fun to see what happens with him. The pass attempts are different in the plane times a little bit different but there's lots of like their metcalf Adam you've been talking about him for a while now and it was good to see him. Come out and play at the level that he did and have more targets than Tyler go away. Let's talk about running running backs though oh I'm sorry one now the running back list here Geo Chris Thompson sorry I used to taste. There is no sorry about about that. I would go with like I said before. I think if you're looking at it from a more long-term approach Ronald Jones your best bet short-term though I think you look at it just the two guys at the top of the list in terms of Geo and Chris Thompson Thompson could be great long-term but we just has a hard time staying healthy. That's the problem with him so as long as he's these guys is out. He's going to have an increase in touch in workload in you know you know he's going to be in the passing game so I I think those guys are are the easy top three and then hide is a is a solve for who would you drop right now first of all for Chris Thompson I have little interest if no interest in non Pr Zephyr yeah he's like three cone saying you said about half PBR sure pulpy are definitely so who would you drop right now for Chris Thompson Jennifer Ronald Jones well you could start with Kayla Balaj who just has no business being on a fantasy roster. If the rest of your team is good and you've got drake I would drop drake for Ronald Jones I would drop drake for Chris Thompson. NPR obviously for Gio. I would do that Dr Thompson at just think it's GonNa be a while before he's a factor factor if you've got Daryl Henderson into don't have todd Gurley at the drop him and it's really about it. There's not a whole lot of just that running back specific at Hain Barbara think right. I wouldn't get rid of him yet. We might be week or two away from that but I wouldn't do it yet. The guys that I looked at our own seventy percent of leagues or more that that I would drop for those guys would be Jordan Howard Daryl Henderson Pain Barber Kareem Hunt Sneezy one and then Darwin Thompson all them are seventy two percent to eighty eight percent. What would you drop them for Carlos Hyde? Yes Malcolm Brown Rahim Moster. Yeah I mean look if we like Breda. We should like most most or had three games more than five carries last year. He was really good in all of them. Seven carries for eighty six yards and a touchdown against Oakland seven seven carries for fifty nine yards against the rams plus four catches twelve carries for eighty seven yards at Tampa Bay. He's got what I think is an easy match at Cincinnati even though they played very well last week at Seattle but most hurt is going. He's definitely GonNa get work is he's. He's one of many players not just running back with players that are on this like third and Fourth Tier of interesting waiver ads and I think he makes a lot of sense if you lost seven Coleman is seven could be gone a month. Maybe longer and he's going to be that second guy. We know that Macarena as a history of getting nicked up hopefully we we can play through injuries like he did last year. We'll see so most are also. He's definitely not a priority guy but he's someone who carries some semblance of value in east available in every really right nobody nobody should have so. I guess third-string yeah absolutely and then Jamie you've got this group of well. I guess I'll include moster this group of running running backs who will get work on a weekly basis at least for most while Coleman's out moster Madison Ito Smith. Mike Davis this Darren sproles so is there anyone that really jumps out from that group. I really should include Malcolm Brown. All these guys widely available except Madison Malcolm Brown Moster Madison Smith Mike Davis Darren sproles a lot of names there but they get work and what do you think about them. I think that they're certainly lower on the list than these other guys Malcolm Brown I think as we've saw despite the fact that I said this is his best game. If Todd Gurley stays healthy there's the scenario of what Todd Gurley is not healthy and you're talking about one of the better lottery tickets that you'll find so I would put him slightly ahead of most just from the standpoint of most there's going to need still another injury to happen for him to be a starting fantasy running back and then on top of that you have what is Jeff Wilson's rolled into beat because we see this from time to time that they they keep a guy on a roster because he's better on special teams and they may value most more as a special teams guy than they do Jeff Wilson. That role says what they put Wilson on the practice squad. Maybe they also thought that somebody take most start. There's a lot of things that go into it. I'm not exactly sure which guy they're gonNA value more but it could be a situation where we see Jeff Wilson after giving the most look really good against Tampa Bay. I think we could see Jeff Wilson Wilson cutting into most arts role so I I would put brown slightly ahead of him but you know with Madison Anita Smith they're still need an injury to be very fantasy relevant but in the situations that they're in those playing behind devante Freeman and his injury track record in the Madison savings guidebook but Madison could be a star given Minnesota looks like they're gonna be able to run the ball. I feel like we can make that case for Madison Ito Smith every week until we absolutely need them. Because of an injury so it's up to you is the.
"anita smith" Discussed on WEEI
"NFL Sunday. I'd have an up and down one minute. There are some plays. That are not going my way interesting game here. The Rams up twenty to thirteen Broncos about to seal it deep in the red zone Todd Gurley. He's gone over two hundred second week in a row. The Broncos have led up a two hundred yard rusher Goff. If you look at these numbers point to really interesting Jared Goff is nothing today. He's had his worst day of the season for the Rams, and I don't think much of the Broncos defense, but they're doing a decent job in the past. Well, because girls writing going crazy right at bribes had trouble with the Ryan. So looks like L A's gonna come out of that remained undefeated Todd Gurley by the way, twenty seven carries two hundred five yards. Two touchdowns evidence seven and a half yards a carry and they're still three minutes left in the MVP candidate. I know it's early but at other action the ravens up twenty one nothing over the titans at a game. Probably no one's watching. Joe flacco elite comes to mind that word. Remember the hell Joe flacco elite but the game of the four o'clock window. Oh, man. The Cowboys are putting it on the Jags are forty two seven. What happened? Can you think of a player who needed a game? Like this more than Prescott. No, case keenum. Maybe I would say Dak had more. Remember cowboys. The Cowboys the national spotlight on him. He's got the whole state ally. Actually, Eli probably needed a little more. But it's close allies got to rings. Yeah. He's going to sneak into the hall of fame because his last name's manning. You're right rings Dak Prescott is in his real weird situation with the Cowboys. Great. I hear okay second year. Okay. Third year. He's under contract. They paid them. Nothing. He makes seven hundred thousand dollars. He makes less than the fourth round pick it slotted, but he has one more year at the discount. Yeah. And then they decide what to do with them. So there's a lot more time in the Dak Prescott tank till they have to make a decision with him. But it's going to be weird. If if he got worse this season, it was going to be a really weird off. Yeah. Now, I'd look at it on the Cowboys. I don't know their caps situation. But there's not that many big ticket items because as Yukio Elliott's on his rookie deal still. So they could probably afford Dak Prescott. It's not like they're going to. I think they're going to pay. This. You're right. This is a real impactful game changes the narrative Cowboys don't have any highly paid skill positions. Nicole Beasley guys like they have nothing Ezekiel. That's it by the way this against the Jags. Can we talk about? That fact those uniforms must have ruined their defense is maybe the best defense in the league Jaguars have done. Nothing day. Forty put up on Blake Bortles has not been awful. But he didn't do much letter for net has been. He's flirting with the word bust as Jaguar so far. Look if you can't stand the field that that's a injury bossed, but here too okay latte for rookie year. Leonard fournette the big running back to LSU who they took too high. And when he didn't need a running back. Had a three point nine yards carry last year special. They can find other guys to do that. Yeah. I mean, he's okay. He's a big bruising guy. He doesn't play. They prefer to have him on the field. He was starting in the preseason the catchable lot. They're excited about that. But he's just not there Bortles van what what's going on. I have a lesion approved not approved. Yeah. I may not be able to wait hit me because I want to do I've one for you too. So you go first we're going to do a premature lesion approve not approve for those who've never been part of this before I say, something I ask Android proves that have not doesn't approve it. We invented this. A lot of the shows picked it up. You've been approved not approved the month of November could reignite the widen. The Jacksonville Jaguars addressed the quarterback position in the off season. And why did they stick with Blake Bortles when they were supposed to be a Super Bowl team topic approved absolutely approve? I don't know that it's fair. But I will definitely night the topic. I think I think they just get outta here with the laws and regroup. It's still, you know, that's not a great division. So they have they have the Texans and the titans he compete where they could still win that division. I think they probably will. But you know, I think the format injury heard a little bit too. He is. I know we were just crazy. I think he's a little better than TGI yelp TJ. Yeltsin is a good running back in eke actually catch the balls. Well, I don't think the running back has a lot to do with it. Okay. I'll buy that. Blake Bortles if he has to good games role. Let me know when that is because it's usually one good game bad game average game. Good game. That keeps you invested him. He's on pace this year for over four thousand yards. Sixty one percent passer twenty six touchdowns and twenty two picks. Twenty two picks. Can't get you into the playoffs. Absolutely, okay. My turn legion men Apu not approved the Miami upset of Chicago and overtime thirty one. Twenty was not really a big upset. Anyone who knows the bears should have seen this coming? I give the Florida you lifelong bears fan Paul pats fully approved. You heard me we work on the Dan Patrick show as well. Say this year as weak the bears were had a bye week the past week and the week before is when they scored a million touchdowns against Tampa Bay in Tampa who stinks on defense. Yeah. Mitch trubisky. Who's usually throws about one touchdown a game. And usually less than that. The average is about point eight touchdowns a game career game is life defense playing. Well, the bear fans were in this frenzy of oh my gosh. I've never seen offense play like this. And they were right to get beaten by Brock Osweiler and a bunch of no name guys. Yeah. By the way, the skill position players Wilson and grant whose name I I barely even know Robert Wilson. He's sweet Albert Wilson's really good the research. He's a small receiver for the dolphins. Yeah. He's tough. Off. Yeah. He was every time. I turn it out. He was taken off downfield. He was Miami's four and two. What is going on there? I you know, I had no idea. The tannehill wasn't gonna play. I he has a shoulder injury. I turn on my phone this morning. Jay Glazer tweeted out details out and Osweiler is it. I was like all here. I thought it was going to happen ball as the bears. We're going to win that game. And we were gonna overrate them a little bit busy Beata Brock Osweiler team now. But they didn't you know, Mitch Trubisky was in bad the defense just didn't step out the first game of the year. I mean this game seems like on such a t for the bears. You have a six seven immobile quarterback sitting back there for your defense. And he didn't get sacked once, you know, Brock Osweiler, no sex. He was not sacked today. They didn't get the Brock Osweiler times. I mean that seemed like a Khalil Mack just feast unbelievers big Gorka back there. Oh, man. What a shocking game. That is. So tell you NFL like week-to-week forget, it doesn't mean anything it's impossible to tell. Okay. So tonight's game. I know what we're going to get to that a little bit. But. If you had to bet tonight's game chiefs at patriots New England's given four at home that basically means it's almost a pick em game as far as would win it. If you just had a bet win or lose. I I like the patriots Bs at home in prime time. You know, the history they get the it seems like the hot young quarterback in the hot young team, always go to Foxborough and that tie just changes. I've seen this so many times also the patriots. Now have a month of tape on Patrick Mahomes and at offense with all these little gimmicky veer play in misdirection plays unless they come up with a bunch of new ones this week. I don't think the patriots gonna see anything. They haven't seen on tape. Absolutely. And now the patriots have that band, but don't break defense. I do think Mahomes will have some numbers. But I think that I it could be a high scoring game Brady should really do well against clean house. He's a chiefs are not pressuring like they used to. They don't have that Tomahawk Justice Houston. So they're they don't have that defense from about five years ago. There's just no players there or go back to the game. The other night real quick. Thursday night game eagles thirty four giants thirteen most of the people in the media spent the entire time talking about the giants. But the eagles. What did you see there? Again eagles fan. Does that calm? Everybody down at eagles. Oh, big time. Although there was a couple of lucky plays. Do you? Remember Carson Wentz got his elbow knocked and threw up in the air. It somehow any giants defender could've gone but Nelson Agla runs from ten yards downfield. It's a pop up and gets it. There was a bunch of fluky plays like that that went their way. So I think the real concern is health of their offense line lane. Johnson. It's been iffy. Jason Peters future hall of Famer left tackle been iffy. So it's not the confidence of last year is not there. Okay. But what about the running back position? Because a lot of people are talking about they have window Smallwood play decently the other night. He's a fine. Second tier running back. Corey Clement is a really good out of the backfield receiver. He's eagles James white. Right. And I like him a lot. They don't have the two hammers eight lesser JJ. He was a feature back. Yep. And they had look at the goal line. He was huge team leader had a huge super. Bowl. I don't know how they let him out of the building Detroit out. They should get him back. He's in Detroit. He's playing maybe trade trade a fifth round pick for him. I so here's a question. If you're the eagles, would you trade for the two guys are Shawn McCoy McCoy can't wait to get out of buffalo. But he's been in Philadelphia has some burn bridges. I I don't know if I could get them. But I trade a second round pick for Tevin Coleman outta bed. Lanta? Yeah. Coleman to free agent at the end of the year. That's not a bad move at all. I think Kevin Coleman is really good all purpose player. He's throng. He devante Freeman spent on the shelf a lot and Atlanta may say the season's over we're not gonna pay a backup running back, but they're two and four. They're technically in it. And you're right. Devante Freeman has been hurt. So David nice backup, Anita Smith. But no, you can't you can't give if you're Atlanta k give them to Philadelphia to what if you got hot and facing in the plan if Atlanta trades. Devin Colman are seven Coleman to the eagles. I get call the year that's called the year. But you can't they can't they can't do it just because if they face them again, I don't think they've given up his. Much when you have Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, can you really give up on the season. No, you shouldn't. But like they have to get healthy at some point on defense. Even though they don't have that many great players yet. You know, what I've been touting their safety injuries to safeties. Linebacker. That's not that big a deal. Hey, I gotta Quadri for you a little baseball deletion when approved not approved. Yeah. Give me another one leisure when approved not approved. I don't know who the hell of root for an Astros Red Sox series. Interesting Red Sox have have three titles in the past what fourteen years. Yes. So they add an Astros are defending champs. Right. So there's no feel good there. Right. There's no feel-good. We all know Milwaukee's the feel good. But you know, the dodgers are not the traditional feel good. But they have been to the World Series in a long time. I'm rooting hard for the dodgers. They feel like the plucky little dodgers. Even though they have to pick his payroll and base. Right. Yeah. So like the brewers a lot too. I would be I'm happy. Whoever comes out of the NFL. Those are two teams. The Astros are Red Sox are actually really fun teams. There's a lot of Christian yelich, Mookie Betts, these are really fun players. But I I have no idea. I guess I family whose Red Sox fan. So I should go Red Sox before break. Google Christian yelich of the brewers real quick. And look at a picture of. All right. Okay. Christian googling revealing y'all got it. Sure. Got him. Okay. Look at the picture of what really niche actor does. He look like from a movie that you and I both love gimme head. It's an independent film by one of your favorite directors of all time so days if you now which they look like. Well, Richard link ladder. Obviously, you I love, and I must have been subconsciously getting a days which characters he looks like Pickford, if you remember the movie days confused, there's this really thin. Good looking dude. Play by air to actress, Shawn Andrews Pickford, he's got like black hair. Good looking thin kind of tan. He ends up dating meal Jovic in real life and in the movie, and they got married that's his claim to fame Google. Oh, yes. The white God. I was thinking the wrong guy in DC Pickford Pickford is a guy who tries to have the party this house and his jazz at catch him that is dead on the keg delivery to his house and that is dead on. Oh, gosh. It's always the same person. I tweeted it out this week. I just Google that Pickford from days you, it's amazing Christian yelich Mary Miller Jovovich for a short time. What a squad. How work I come next. We'll get to how was your weekend. Talk a little baseball football and all kinds of more good stuff because we're sports radio show. Stick around Lieberman, NBC sports radio. I'm.
"anita smith" Discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"City. You know, they, the ravens really spread the ball around in week one nut none. None of the ravens pass catchers had over six targets. No one really stands out to me here, but John Brown Dade. He talked to red zone targets last week which tied for the team lead an Michael Crabtree has been held at sixty yards or fewer in eight straight games dating back to last season. So Crabtree is like a touchdown or bus guy. Willie Snead got lucky to score his touchdown last week one. Actually, Nick Boyle scored a touchdown on the play before, but then it was nullified by Willie Snead's penalty for Opie. And then on the very next play, Willie Snead scores a touchdown, not really trying to chase that situation. I do think the John Brown is the best play in the receiver core, Nick Boyle is a little sneaky. If you're playing like the one game, Thursday slate on decay or or a fan duel. The Bengals give a ton of production to the colts tight ends last week. Jack Doyle got in on it at seven for sixty. Eric Ibran had a big game. Eric swoop caught a thirteen yard pass. Nick boil ran more pass routes in Mark Andrews and max Williams in week one. And he someone to keep in mind, look, move onto the next one. Let's move onto the Sunday one pm games. We'll start with Carolina who their offense was interesting, very McCaffrey focused. They don't have Greg Olsen and they're going into Lanna. They don't have a Williams at right tackle either. I might add, they're going into that Lanta which doesn't have Kiana Neil or Dion Jones. So both these teams suffered some legit injuries in week one. Yeah. And that's just going to, you know, increase the shootout probability of this game. He don't. Matt Ryan had a kind of a worrisome opener. He did not put very much zip on the ball. I have not seen him throw the ball, like lacking that kind of elasticity ever. I mean, that's and I think that it might have been due to a very, very humid night in Philly. You know, the ball wasn't exactly zipping on a Nick foles hands either on the other side. So I'm not gonna, you know, not not. Gonna get too worried about that. But Matt, Ryan look bad. In that first game, I think he bounces back here. He's going back home in the dome. Panthers really don't have anybody that can hang with Julio and you know who will lead the NFL and targets and area arts in week once a bunch of red zone targets. Of course, he didn't convert any of them as Julio is wont to do. But I think that Matt Ryan and Julio is going to be an interesting DFS stack this week. I think that they both have a chance at a at a pretty big game. Matt Ryan has been very successful lately against Ron Rivera's defenses over three hundred yards in four of their last five meetings in multiple touchdown, passes in the one where he did not go over three hundred yards. So I do think that Matt Ryan, bounces back. We didn't really like him as a play last week, but we're back on him. Now I want to know I need more information on devante Freeman. I'm a little worried about him. He suffered a MC l. and PCL injury. Down the stretch last season was highly ineffective for like the falcons last four games average under two point, seven yards per carry. And then in week one, he suffers an injury to the same need. So that is that's scary. And on Tuesday, the falcons signed Brian Hill from their practice squad up the running back. So we're going to learn more about that situation later in the week. If if we get Tevin Coleman alone, essentially Anita Smith would be the number two, but Tevin Coleman would be the clear feature back. You know, he's going to be like a borderline Rb one even against the Panthers who shut down the Cowboys running game last week. You know, Muhammed sue, just touchdown or bus guy. Nothing really stands out about him. Calvin Ridley played sixty four percent of the falcons week, one snap apps. He was their number three receiver, but only draw drew two targets and he caught none Snead to see him more involved in the offense. Before we do anything with him. He's waiver wire material right now. Austin Hooper ran forty one routes more than he did any game last season, but he failed to top fifty yards for the eighteenth straight game. They just really don't try to get him the ball and you're that is that means that he's not going to be very good fantasy. On the other side? Yes. Oh, Cam now draw, he goes to Atlanta. He has really struggled against the falcons lately as a passer. He has under two hundred yards passing in five straight games against the falcons with a combined touchdown interception ratio of four to five. He hasn't been able to compensate with rushing production. These losses of Keanu, Neil and Dionne Jones cannot be overstated in importance for the falcons. This is they just lost two of their best defensive players in. So we're not gonna, you know, worry about cams, historical struggles against Dan Quinn's defenses. We're going to go after this. This game in Cam is a really good start. Now we did lose Greg Olsen. That is a specially notable for Devin. Funchess. This who had major splits within without red Olsen on the field. Last year average eight targets for eighty one yards per game with four touchdowns in Greg Olsen's final five missed games. And then his production was much much worse with Greg Olsen. When he was in there when after he came back. So this could be really, really big for Devin. Funchess is not a great matchup dockers. Good Cornerbacks but we can Bank on the volume and Devin. Funchess did have a couple of decent games against the falcons last year. Five eighty six and two for forty eight with touchdown. So I think he's a must start right now. Devin funchess gained a lot of value due to Greg Olson's re break of his foot Christian McCaffrey facing off for the falcons defense that schematically is willing to concede running back receptions. They have given up the most running back receptions in the NFL each of the past three years now, without, you know, one of the reasons that they feel comfortable doing that they're, you know, rangy speedy every down, middle linebacker, Dionne Jones. This is just a huge loss. Christian McCaffrey had five catches even with the aunt Jones in their last year. He had five catches in both meetings with the falcons.
