"I think i talked with this lab about this. You know how frustrating was it to see. davis mills. Look like joe montana. There and brandin cooks not being the beneficiary of that was that part of the reason is and we talk about this. All the time is bill. Belichick tries to take out your best offensive weapons When when he goes up against you and the best defensive weapons no question for houston was brandin cooks. And that's what we saw chris. Conley and other receivers. You'll never hear from again with career days so i feel like you know despite cook seemingly coming back which by the way the vikings aren't a by i believe next week so we'll get the week off next week regardless Even though you probably won't be able to play madison. This week ron Brandin cooks is a nice little consolation prize. So congratulations on that. It's all about building depth. And and you guys certainly did that here with this squad all right. Let's pitch Let's go with ron. Why don't you take this question sort of dale and boston. He writes as van jefferson. Worth keeping around on my roster. I'm gonna have some by week issues. The next couple of weeks congrats guys that dale and boston. So ron you look at Van jefferson right now. Obviously behind cooper cop obviously behind robert woods but you can make the case if either one of those guys goes down band. Jefferson could be a big beneficiary of the question. Is when you're faced with by week issues Over the next month month and a half whatever. It is How hard you have to work to keep. Band jefferson on your roster. I think he's definitely worthwhile keeping He's one of the players. When i was drafting this year i looked at as being a free square that had tremendous upside if if One of the two guys go down. the great offense stafford is there. He's a definitely a huge upgrade over. Goff so i was really targeting Jefferson at the end of the end of the draft for sure for them..

"Finally guy. Johnny smith a touchdown and he worked one hundred henry a lot there to the running back. Is you know not a lot. I don't damian harris even play last week. It was such a small part of what those patriots did against bucks. Although that bucks defense is so strong while you're gonna try running but a touchdown in but other than yeah not huge attribution gotta get that running game going i wanna see some reminder a stevenson gonna start spam in Patriots twitter feeds. Gimme some stevenson there. But you know this team is working towards the future. I don't see a playoff Birth in their future. But you know they're going to be hovering right around there. They're tough to beat so they're gonna make you play good football to beat them. But dave but i do know is. There is a rookie quarterback. Going against bill ballot. Check in that house. You still like thunder. That's literally the first thing that was going to say casey. You've got a rookie quarterback in bella checks records were versus rookie. Quarterback's it's not only good he basically embarrasses them and he he just cut him down to size in. This guy's davis mills. You know he's got a lot of potential he's a he's very inexperienced. He had a short career at stanford. They're just eleven games lots of raw talent there but completing just over fifty percent of his passes in the nfl. That's not going to really get it done He just had eighty seven passing yards last week. So it is a work in progress to say. The least brandin cooks managed manages to still make place for this team. But i mean they got absolutely smoked last week. Forty to nothing by the bills. And it's obviously like you said with bill belichick on the other side and a rookie quarterback at the helm. Good luck this time. Texans all right up next we have. Afc south battle tennessee titans at the jacksonville jaguars and the titans three and a half point favorites on the road. Yeah and this is a titans team coming off that over shocking overtime loss to the jets last week And you know when you look at the numbers of that game you got derrick henry hundred fifty seven yards in a rushdie last week you would have said i mean you look at the stats. There's no way the jets one. Somehow they pull it off This titans team last year as good as they were a playoff squad a fun team to watch. The defense is questionable at best for the squad and allows other teams to usually get a lead on them and to an end or to hang around in the football game at this point in time you got. Aj brown and julio jones both pretty banged up there's a pretty good chance one of them will go This week they could certainly use them But you know..

"So that's going to help najji harris get targets. It's clearly an implemented part of their offense whereas gibson. I'll say it again. Zero third downs played last week. He actually started the year playing some third downs. And getting some work in in the past in passing situations and It's it seems to be dissipating form. It makes me nervous. And it's all his offensive line. Is that much better than the nargis brandin cooks as a top eight wide receiver. What would you trade brandin cooks for. If you were going to sell allen robinson think you can get more than robinson for cooks at this point but you would rather have robinson i would. It's you know if you look at their careers. i mean. they both very accomplished careers. They both been top fifteen ish wide receivers robinson a little bit better. They're both on bad offenses but cooks might have a bigger target. Share than our rob. Maybe we just discounted cooks too much. What's different about him than robinson. Just just you think at the end of the day. More targets robinson. I think there's a better i i know. It hasn't been the case so far. I think that robinson will have better quarterback play for the rest of the season than brennan cooks. Okay you know why that might be the case. What happens of cooks gets traded. The we we talked about that a lot. I didn't realize somebody tweeted to me. I do not believe brandin cooks will accept the trade. He said back in january that he didn't wanna get traded because he wanted to spend time this off season working with shawn watson in. Houston i but i think he reiterated that after after the whole watson he did. I didn't. I didn't read that if he did. But push comes to shove if he's on a team that's going nowhere. He wants to stay there. Catching passes from tyrod and davis. The i think the thing was he was tired of people determining when he was going to move and where he was going to live and he wanted to make that choice for himself. He did not enjoy the process of being traded three times in four years. I didn't know he had a no trade clause in his contract. Think he does. I think he just said he's not going to play a trade forum. I don't buy it at all. Be a break. It'll be like one in five. I don't even know where the trade that line is. Why would he want to get traded. Come on now journey that he will get traded. It's just something that'll be out there. There are going to be teams that are going to look for receiver help at the deadline. This to someone who houston's definitely open for business they will trade anybody they possibly cast really really quick adam but it's not a football thing. He's a human being you. Would if you had to move across the country four times in five years. But he's a competitor. I think at the end of the day if he gets the chance to go to a super bowl contender he he might. He might change his mind right. Like what if the chiefs decided to trade for cooks instead of. Let's say josh. Gordon fizzles out i know craz- can we break now..

"I understand that. But i thought it would. There's still limitations to what someone can do with with a quarterback. I just don't see davis mills having a great three game stretch or two more games. Whatever it's going to be with taylor especially with buffalo great game last night and i know. But that's that's when. That's when. I would say i don't buy that could happen again. Where he's going to get sixty six percent of the teams receiving yards especially with buffalo. New england is the next two games. Well i think the bigger question is can you keep up this type of target share where he's got. Eleven of two thousand eight throws going his way. That's probably also not very sustainable. That's almost forty percent of the target chair but he still going to get a lot of target at minimum eight targets from game. Is that stinks. I'm just saying right. You try to turn them into. Sue has a bad. Yes absolutely shopping him. There's no reason to not shop him at this point because this is not sustainable but i mean like five. Eighty is probably something that he can still do based on the amount of targets. He's gonna get so he's not gonna completely fall off the face of the you know. This isn't give him away or whatever. You should be getting something great return. I'm not saying to trade him for anything like you're saying when you said you should absolutely sell high is that you just get whatever you can for. Brandin cooks said you sit. You sell him high for somebody. That's that's a bilo candidate. So if i can turn brandin cooks and trade wasi harris. I'm trying to do that if i concern. Brandin cooks and and another player of that caliber into antonio gibson or saquon barkley. I'm a thousand percents that i'm doing to would you do it. Straight up for clyde edwards layer. If i needed a running back and that's the best i can do. You know. Cook is among my third receiver fourth receiver depending on the type of league denim. and then. yeah. I would consider it okay. I would love it. But i consider it right so shoot higher than that. Yes yeah you should. Yeah okay but my way. Davis most isn't gonna be the quarterback for the rest of the year. Either just to keep that in mind. But i just hate the schedule. I i didn't like it last night. Either came through. I listened sunday ten when we do the autopsy on the two thousand fourteen wide receiver draft class. How's it gonna look three years from now right while devante adams's in that class or no. Yes yes so. He'll be at the top now. Mike evans might be the top though but ahead of that of atoms well bodywork at the top. Folks will be pretty if things continue. Frat but evans had a two three year. Headstart on alan robinson was in that class yup and brandin cooks and odell beckham and sammy watkins. And who am i forgetting jordan. Mathews i think. Forgetting another star kelvin. Benjamin ever who. I thought was going to be the best guy that class mark isley murky slay her. I.

"I did that last night. Feels pretty awesome. I just couldn't wait to get the season the week started. Or you can do the two out of three kramer. He two out of three pretty off night for his props and only you can still turn twenty into forty five only going to and one. So that's if you're a little you know you wanna play the floor game instead of the ceiling for me. The ceiling is the sky. Right guy guy came at me on twitter all mad. Because i only one one unit on the sunday night chiefs ravens game as compared to the nine point seven years. One thursday night football with the giants. And you know we already talked about yes side. one All right my who. Who's your first one. I probably should add it up in front of me. My first one is christian mccaffrey. You're telling me. I can get even money on him. To score a touchdown yes please. It's a rushing touchdown to be clear. Okay ooh that's fun taxes. And mccaffrey finds the end zone. I tried to play that in prospects entry right however you can't play these same player prop so i have christian mccaffrey over nine and a half perception suboxone. Come out They yeah. I mean christian. Mccaffrey just catches the football. It's just that simple in his last thirteen games. He's gone over five and a half and ten of those ten and three against the number five and a half and last game he only had five. So you already had that outlier game. He's coming off of i- darnold seems like he's gonna throw him the ball a bunch. It seems like robbie anderson maybe doesn't have much enrollment. We'll see but he's still putting up decent numbers even though he's not getting the targets he got last year. It's early. They signed him to a big deal. That's what i'm holding on do. Because they're gonna pay the guy they're gonna use him so i think he's still involved but his role. Maybe slightly changed. Who's your second Prop effort thursday night blows my mind that we're looking at a panthers team that's eight and a half points on the road it is. Why what the hell what kinda nfl or we live in an all right. We davis mills over two. Oh nine and a half passing yards at some point. The numbers to low tyrod was passing the ball effectively. Davis mills came in through one hundred yards Yeah i don't know. I'm just playing the numbers here. That's a low number of the panthers. Earning xactly world beaters. I know their defense looks improved. But i think there'll be some some passing yards in this game if nothing else. Garbage time stanford kid. He's not gonna make a ton of mistakes. Yeah and again. It's so low. That i mean anytime. You see a passing yardage it's really. Nfl under two twenty. They're not running the quarterback that throws the ball not name lamar jackson. Then you should take the over on. These insanely low. I mean we said we. We're tyrod it was like two o. five it was. It was one of these props of in a while. Second one and i've been looking at the establish the run projections. They have this guy project zero. So i don't know if there's something. I missed but mark ingram over thirty three and a half rushing yards. I know they're trying to maybe mix it up a little bit. As far as who gets the workload he said hurt. I not that i know no. I found no news. That's what i was gonna say. I keep an eye on it. I guess before you get down on this. But he is forty kerry so far in games. And i think if you're starting davis mills what do you wanna do. You wanna give the ball to a veteran running back like mark ingram and again. He's gonna probably get fifteen carries. I think conservatively even twelve. And you only have to average like three yards of carey which is like what is with averaging. It's not going to be pretty but i. He gets the thirty three and a half pretty easily. I mean i think we need to relax about the panthers defense so especially in this spot. And i'm gonna stack davis mills with brandin cooks over sixty eight and a half. Yeah receiving yards Brandin cooks just gets doesn't matter targets doesn't matter it was quarterback is and yeah. That was my other note. The narrowest of target distribution down there in houston They don't have a lot of options. Sprain and cooks is the option. We joked about it. But i ended up with a lot of brandin cooks and best ball seven so if this can keep going i find it remarkable. How open he can get on a team. That doesn't really have anything else. And everyone knows. He's the main target. Yeah if i was a defensive coordinator applying the texans ago. You were guarding brandin. Cooks any other question. What about philip. Linzie yeah no. I know we all will lindsay regarding brandin cooks. But what about jordan. Aren't we worried about no guard. Brandin cooks and again you know coming up. Fourteen target game if he can get a dozen targets. You don't have to be that efficient to get to sixty nine nice receiving yards right. I mean you can have like an okay game with that crazy target shared and still get there. Yeah bonus one. That came across sam darnold over six and a half rush yards that one. All you need is just one one play for you to break..

"Them at some points but not a ton to report in this game but if you have andy dalton the and you know justin fields kind of be on standby. Justin feels probably gets to start next week. I think against the browns. And i believe or not. I think that's a fair will match up. I think he does well in that game. So speaking of the browns they took on the texans. They won thirty one. Twenty-one baker mayfield got injured in this game but he was fine One thousand nine hundred. Twenty one hundred thirteen yard touchdown in a pick nick. Shaab eleven attempts eleven carries ninety five yards and a touchdown kareem hunt had thirteen russia's for fifty one yards when we had five points in the game but yet chubs a monster and Also dmitri dmitry felton. I think that's how you pronounce it. He had two receptions fifty one yards and he had that touchdown run. That was an incredible play. He had a couple of spin moves it. That was an incredible play. Hooper five receptions forty yards. I think he's a guy that you know. He's going to get a decent amount of targets. And i think if you're desperate at the tight ends bodies definitely somebody you can pick up and start. I think because he does get a decent mandatory gets. I don't know jarvis landry leftist game with an injury in return and joke really. Didn't do anything. It really. Looking at their stats. Peremptorily really didn't do that. Much hunter bryant or harrison. Brian sorry four. Sections forty nine yards had four points. Yeah really need. The ground game was really what was the strengthened team in this game but yeah trump. You're gonna start every week baker. I think he's the guy that you could start every week as well because of the people that he can throw to and this is without odell beckham. If odell beckham comes back you know look out. And then tyrod taylor. He was a quarterback that left the game. Ten of eleven one hundred twenty five yards touchdown and also davis mills playing this game. Eight of eighteen hundred yards touchdown. I mean these guys are an pick these guys are. You're not really going to start him unless you're super desperate at the quarterback spot. You know you're dealing with injuries. Are you draft quarterback with the same. Bye week or something. You know it's These guys really want you know. Pick up and really outside of that. You know mark ingram was their leading rusher forty one yards. I mean you know. He's not really going to do that. Much tyrod taylor. At a rushing touchdown brandin cooks was the leading receiver. I mean there's no surprise there. there's really just no value With the houston texans. When it comes to fantasy brandon coaxes really their best player And even without shawn watson. Brandin cooks is still. I think he's a strong flex play. So that's my thoughts on that game so moving on we got about five games left to cover. I believe so. The next game is the rams and the colts rams win. Twenty seven twenty. Four matthew stafford two hundred seventy eight yards passing two touchdowns a pick at about twenty. One points darrow. Understand had a pretty good game got injured in this game. Left with the rib injuries. Let's keep tabs. On fifty three yards rushing and a touchdown had about thirteen points in that contest and sony michelle. If you have him he might be the lead running back. If henderson is expected to miss time. So just keep an eye on that cooper cups. Been a monster so far and was a monster in this game. Nine receptions one hundred sixty three yards two touchdowns at twenty eight points at about like thirty three thirty six in my p pr league. Robert woods kind of worried about his production is production has kind of taken a dip five or six hundred sixty four yards and those bad about six points and jefferson had one reception for fourteen yards at one for eight. So i mean those are leading productive producers in this game Was stafford henderson. And cooper cup you know and i think there's really no surprise. There did expect the colts defense to play a little bit better. They kinda did but not that much and then on the cold side carson. Wentz actually got hurt in this game. Twenty thirty one hundred. Forty seven yards a touchdown and a pick. Jacob jacobsen through costly interception. Jonathan taylor only at fifty one yards rushing a little worried about the The colts offensive. Line the offensive line is not been playing that well and i'm a little worried about that. Michael pittman a research hundred twenty three yards at about twelve points. Yeah he was pretty good in the game so you know what i definitely think he'd be a strong flex play. Because i think it's clear he's number one option right now on the team jackson. Sixty four yards receiving paschal. Thirty eight and a touchdown. So i mean the receiver spot. I really don't see a ton of value. But i think pittman is probably like i said i think he could be a strong flex play You know him when seem to have a good connection and paschal he's at he's at three touchdown so far this season so i think really. Those are the two top wide receivers on the colts. Now without ty l. bi. A little worried about the running. Game jonathon taylor really has not lived up to his expectations yet. So yeah that's my thoughts on that game so now we go into the broncos end. Jaguars broncos win twenty three thirteen teddy bridgewater great performance. Twenty.

"Let's get to the texans. I told out of us on this show joe but other places. I had tyrod taylor as my fast quarterback lug now they play the browns and their thirteen point underdogs. I know this comes out after waivers run so. I'm sorry i'm insulting you right now. There is no bigger fools gold in fantasy football this week. Then people who are spending significant parts of their budget on mark ingram at like. I want nothing to do with it like i talked about kenny game earlier. I'd rather have kenny game. Well my team the marketing the texans are going to stick they. They ran into a great match up in week. One against jackson bill They were able to play from ahead at the start of that game. I'm honest with ross. Tyrod taylor by the way is a stream worthy quarterback. There's no doubt about it. Not a great match. Up against cleveland though. Oh and by the way Yeah i think he's more of a superfly sky. Brandin cooks is the only texan. I'm interested in reevaluated. It they come out and do something impressive against the browns but brandin cooks with the only texan. I'm interested in for what about the browns. So nick stoves now outscored kareem hunt ten of his last fourteen games. Nick tub is a superstar This guy the i watch guy and i feel like he's the best running back in football This is a great nick job week. The browns to touchdown favorites at home. I mean nick job in the argument to be the number one overall running back on the slate i mean. It's very hard not threat christian. Mccaffrey there but nick. Saban the argument to be the number one overall running back on the slate. What's going on with odell beckham He didn't he wasn't active in week. One that's the guy you can't play until further notice. Jarvis landry is a wide receiver three years. The problem baker mayfield through twenty eight passes in week one. Nobody got more than five targets. Any targeted nine.

"You know. I don't think kyle. Shane is going to rule out some type of rotation in game rotation between the two. That would not shock me at all. And that's gonna be somewhere to we built in weekly projections. Speaking of the forty niners so we finally got to look he most in the preseason finale where he started and got the first ten snaps. They took him out then. Trae sermon was in for the next fourteen snaps. I think it sounds like you've gotten warmer on most as it's gone along i was probably too low on most stirred to start. You still have trace urban slightly ahead of where he most in the top one. Fifty harry thinking about those guys. Now heading into drafts and sermon ahead of rahim oyster because I just think he's got a higher touch ceiling. They could get to a point where they're willing to give him seventeen to twenty twenty touches per game. I think they've learned their lesson that most can't hold up under those conditions whether he can be really really good as long as they keep a cap on his touches. I mean i. I've liked these guys all along. I mean i think they're rushing. Offense is so good that they could both finishes top fifteen fantasy backs. So i mean i'm even willing to draft on the same team. I know that that's often frowned upon. What in a situation like this. Where they get a five hundred rushing attempts trae lance gets in there like all of a sudden gaps are gonna open the the seas are gonna part and these guys are gonna rip off big runs and i think the most serious the lightning to the thunder of trace arm speaking of preseason usage running backs. We've got the i look at the jaguars backfield without travis in week. Three james robinson startling got the first ten snaps then. Carlos hyde comes in and get seven snaps. You have james james roberson forty seventh overall. I've talked about this on the monday. Pot a little bit. I like james robinson. He's clearly better in the past game. Then carlos carl's tide is very clearly urban meyer and darryl battles boy like very very very clearly but james robinson you know. I thought he was good last year. Not great there was so much of his value was just roll volume and he was getting one hundred percent of the running back touches in a lot of games for the jaguars. That's just not going to happen this year period but you can still get him probably in the third or fourth round. You have him forty seventh overall right now. So what do you think about. James robinson in the wake of this travis. Itn injury and how it settled after the preseason game yeah forty seven th overall is what like a fringe fourth fifth round pick. I've got him in there. Like with mike davis and gus edwards. And i think that that's pretty much where he belongs he. He has more receiving upside than gus edwards albeit in a a worse situation and then i think mike davis situation is better and mike davis has more Receiving upside than james robinson. And certainly gus edwards so. This is kind of like the the little tear that these guys are in anaheim. I i think that i i like them. I think that they you know. I think gusts edwards. Who's at the bottom of that list from me. That three men less is going to go The earliest in drafts and probably is probably the most overvalued. Just structurally for me. I don't often take running back there in that spot. You know typically taking wide receiver. Or i'm taking cow pits were. I'm taking you know a quarterback Like i so rarely taking running back there so just is what it is. I don't know if anybody cares about the texans wide receivers but for what it's worth brandin cooks and nico collins look like they'll be the every down in wide receiver sets but man. They played their starters in that third. Preseason game and i mean it was ugly man. I think you do have niko collins in the top fifty relevant. Now hundred fiftieth overall. Brennan cooks up at seventy. First of. i'm even scared about brandin. Cooks men like i'm worried. This dolphins just going to be so so so so bad so but people probably know a lot about nico collins. And i think he's maybe an interesting fire. At least the opportunity costs on nego. Cons is like totally free. Where you out with the texans wide receivers. I mean with brandin cooks. You're going to have to live with some some bag games. In all likelihood i mean. I do think he's going to be able to produce some spikes. He's got big playability. They're going to have to throw the ball to stay competitive The worry about as like them averaging fourteen points per game even if that like they are so i mean there is a there are thirty one teams and there's a gap and then there's the taxes i mean. It's it's that bad. You know. I think that even the lions are considerably more talented than are the texans nico counts interesting. I mean. he's another absolute freak from athleticism in size standpoint stylist Stylistically compliments brandin cooks real. Well but yeah. I mean you know getting getting them. The ball is going to be. It's going to be a challenge. I think we can weaken a week. I did put me collins. He's smack dab at one fifty overall in the top one. Fifty speaking of wide receivers and flyers. This guy's not even a flyer anywhere but marquess. Calloway screaming up in. Adp and you know. There's a wide range of opinions on marcus cowie athlete because there's a wide range of outcomes and go back and listen to the monday pot. I tried to outline the ball and the bear case on marquez cow you having wide receiver fifty hundred and tenth in the rankings. I'm not sure that he gets to you. At one. Hundred and ten people are really excited about marquette callaway after he blew up the preseason after james one the job after this michael thomas thing who knows when he'll be back now. They're saying they're optimistic. He'll be back week. Seven will see. But yeah i mean i. I don't really know what to think about. Mark has range about comes as so so. So why have you been trying to get him. Or.

"Very other jackson top. One hundred list aside from watson Let me take a lot so has to be was on there. I don't remember. What number was i. Put my long doubt. So you gotta tell us. I would imagine tunsil. I can't there can't be anybody else on there. There's no way no. It wasn't a look. Obviously a former texan from last season. Jj watt was in the sixties still. Yeah it's the respect. The name who he is. That's more and i love jd. That's probably more lifetime achievement award. Absolutely tunsil is seventy five. Okay i can deal with that that that's probably about right question you'd ask. How many tackles are in front of real question to you brought a beasley making it earlier. That's that's a lot off of a good team and couldn't talk if you put brandin cooks and beasley spot. I think broncos private better player not crazy wall. I think brandin cooks would catch a lot of ball. I think he'd be really good. Yeah he's faster after the catch. He's a he's a really good point. I'm not sure case for brandin cooks to be in the top one hundred necessarily but i think it shows you a lot like bazeley. Great possession guy fits their purvey fits in perfectly what they're yeah you're right i completely understand. I think you could take some good players like clerks and put on there and say okay. You're getting the same value. probably yeah but yeah i offense. That team gets probably the credit. It deserves buffalo. But defensively was sean mcdermott. They don't get it and they're gonna have to. When you get to the postseason seeing in kansas city or cleveland or whoever that. Afc team is going to be in your way or two. They play offense and it'll be their defense it rears at ted. We talk so much about their offense but you can tell by the respect. They have davis whites ninety four ninety five and he's a good player. Yeah but it's players and players know and there are certain things we may not see. They may say well white while a good ball hawk and catches the ball. Maybe they don't think he's great against press players that have played against him wherever the voting goes right. Maybe they hear from team. That's right they don't like this guy's much and maybe the hurts boat. Yeah there's an. It's not an exact science on this but it is a i can't do. The players voted for colby's with his crazy off-season. I wonder if she had no kidding with the with the vaccine. I wonder who the law. How many times a guy is made number one on this. Since they've been doing it has been the first guy like five probably over the last. yeah i would've. He's telling me he's like the mike trout of this. I would imagine right has had it three times. There can't him doing. I mean they have not been ten years. Donald has had at once and rogers is hot at once. And that's going for the people who are in the top ten right now but brady had it three times. Two thousand mahomes number one last year Donald i think it was a year. They won the super bowl so maybe not last year. The donald still tomorrow one last year. So i had to be possibly homes a year before. So yeah it's top man. The quarterback physicians tough and a guy like kylo murray. Where did i don't know where he showed up in this. But he rises and plays great this year. you'll see him creep closer to the top. One of these rookies. If they have a great season as a quarterback never know i mean players players can see some things in And as long as it's not a lifetime achievement award for somebody. And i get why they do it but i don't have any problem. Those names we mentioned the top ten hard to take anybody out to put somebody else. In people who have been number one braid myles garrett would have been one that i would have said he would not hire. They think watson better pass rusher better all around player. What brady was number one in two thousand eleven. Aaron rodgers in two thousand twelve has been ten years. Adrian peterson in two thousand thirteen. Peyton manning in two thousand fourteen Jj watt thousand fifteenth. Right cam newton. Sixteen tom brady in both seventeen and eighteen. Aaron donald two thousand nineteen lamar jackson twenty twenty. So patrick mom's not number one ever yet and. jj watt. They should outside it twice and brady three times. Aeronautics had then you say toy well one time okay yeah. Brady's the only one who's had more than one suicide cam newton year number. Yeah no. I'm just saying like he's heard that we didn't post mvp. And i would imagine it back to you. Tie yesterday you said. Jj watt was number one and then aaron donald later so to defensive players have been number one over the last decade than that. It's been off quarterbacks. A running back. Yeah for the most part one other nasr. Qb's correct correct. Yeah yeah one running back back. Those peterson be anybody. Would there's going to be anybody got it would have been derek after two thousand yards. But yet and the unfortunate thing you wanna quarterbacks put a big dig at the ball in their hand people are always going to reward them a little bit more now. It is surprising. Mahomes chance of number one will. I would have voted number one lamarcus. It's gotta be at this year. I would vote i would. I would make the case going to be number one every year for the next ten years. We'll wanting mvp air rogers he very well may be the number one guy but picking this. It's not for the previous the best player on the league. Yeah who's the best player in league. He's the mike trout football right now. The best defensive player of the year is two guys. Are i mean overall. It's been aaron. Donald and tj watt when you're talking about specialized pass rusher. It's either tj water or myles garrett but aaron donald is the best football player on defense in the league period. But you're right.

"I might just disagree with that in in theory although one of mine might have a one oh five eighty p now that i think about it No the only one. I would really say i disagree with is the no texans before route ten. I think brandin cooks has done enough throughout his career that he should be drafted before around ten. I think even if it's him and tyrod taylor for seventeen games going to be worth more than around him promises that it won't be him in toronto taylor for more than seventeen games. They will eventually and things over to davis mills. Who makes me nervous and win. Brand cooks was doing that whole boomer. Busting for four straight years it was drew brees. It was tom brady he got to. La worked with jared goff for awhile. I'm not sure on what's modular taylor. Yeah well toronto taylor. In that same category by strategy in terms of good you know that's one thing but in terms of passing yards. He you know how much more prolific passer than than tire than tyrod. Taylor ever has been. Yeah the you know. It's it's tough to at brandin cooks and and use his career to make a statement about what you expect this year. He says never been in a situation like this but just in terms of a guy you just figure he's gonna get peppered with targets on the arguably the worst team in football they're going to have to throw and he's so much better than everyone else on the team can't couldn't you. Don't think david he could be worth a top one hundred pick. No certainly going in the top one hundred. Yeah n- i don't know if i've taken him even once. I think the difficulty is because you mentioned adam that tyrod..

"brandin cooks" Discussed on The High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour
"Not worried about. Aj bill especially when the packers had basically had they basically gave the blueprint for aaron jones floor last year like all of the touched on aggression happened. Jamal williams played i. Aj dylan played and yet he still put up the fist Most running back points last year and that was like everyone took everything. Everyone took every all of his chances away and he's still finished in return. You value there so like i just can't pass on a guy who had kids floor season just because you're worried about Affecting or like it's like a second string running back coming in but one thing that we've noticed from the nfl is that none of these guys can really care. like very few players can carry three hundred carries. He's in and i believe it's gonna be a sixty five thirty five split for most running back from the most teams like what's it nausea harris for pittsburgh. He's probably one of the few guys that you can like realistically project not have that sort of timeshare I'm sure like ezekiel elliott. But yeah i mean every. Everyone's moving into that route like even with josh jacob Then then bringing in kenyan drake like josh shake. They're not gonna get away. From josh shaka's he was second player last year. So they're not gonna get away from him just because they brought him kenyan drake just like they're not going to get away from aaron jones is to give villain but they neither of those guys can carry the ball and played the whole game so all the kenyan drake and Aj dylan they're. They're going to get their timeshares. They're like they're they're gonna get their touches but they're not gonna destroy the fantasy value of their current players. If anything they're going to help their team moved the ball closer to the end soon. So the real guys can get the touchdown elliott leflore five time football guys players champions league winner of elliott In regards to brandin cooks. How much is the sort of unknown quarterback situation. There i mean. Obviously we don't know. What's going on with watson but tyrod taylor davis mills. How much is that Dissuading you if at all from drafting cooks in the eighth round. It's not really dissuading all because It the quarterback situation to me is completely known. I have been screaming. Tyrod taylor was going to be the starting quarterback ever since. I drafted my first team. I mean the the sexual sexual assault allegations against watson are just way too much for them to like ha have him slated to be. They're starting court like quarterback at their planning out their preseason and then He doesn't wanna play so even if it all even if ends up all working out for him he's still not gonna play with texans. They know that everyone's so tyrod. Taylor's the guys and if you remember when tyrod taylor was in buffalo. He was able to hit sammy. Watkins quite often like i mean. They ended up making the playoffs for ten. I feel like sammy walk into and brandin cooks a very similar skills. But so i'm really not worried about tyrod taylor making Having having tyrod. Taylor hit cooks for cooks that return top sixteen wide receiver season that he's done now for four different teams in four different quarterbacks..

"Them having a couple of cracks in their defense last year. But i do think they could improve on that And you know i again. I just think it's gonna be a struggle. Even if watson's a quarterback. I still think it's going to be a struggle to hostile environment and i just don't really expect anybody to pop off from the texans going up against the bill so unfavorable here so moving onto the next match up the patriots come to town last year when these two teams met. I believe the texans one. Twenty seven twenty If watson plays i mean i expect them to do okay though i do think the patriots defense is going to be better this year But if it's not shawn watson. I think the patriots feast on the texans here. So yeah unfavorable. If watson doesn't play middle of the road if he does play so moving onto the next magic week six. The texans take on the indianapolis colts. And i think regardless. I think it's unfair will match up. I think the colts have a really good defense. And i just think that the texans even with the shawn watson are going to have a problem in this match So yeah. I would say it's unfavorable here and again i just. I don't know who the quarterbacks gonna be regardless of food is. I just don't think they're going to generate a lot of points and i just you know. I think that they got some playmakers at the wide receiver position. But i mean it doesn't matter if you got these guys throwing the football to you to show in watson's different story but i just i. The texans are just a disaster. Right now i and i really wish it was more interesting. You know the schedule outlook. But it's just it's not it's gonna be all the same i just can't. I just cannot see this team i just. I can't see this team really doing anything. I can't see any players having significant value in fantasy this year. If the shawn watson does play it's a different story but as of right now i just don't see it so yeah this is just another matchup. That is unfavorable. So yeah that's my thoughts on that game so moving onto week. Seven the texans go to arizona to take on the cardinals and they go up against. Jj watt so. That's definitely going to be interesting. I mean after shawn watson plays year. I think it's a farewell match up here because the cardinals defense i still even with. Jj watt. i still think that it's gonna be a defense at teams will be able to move the ball. Against and i definitely think to shawn watson will be able to move the ball against his defense. I do think that guys like brandin cooks and cutie. And anthony miller or whoever really is like the big three at the wide receiver spots and do well here and you know what if one of the running backs takes over. I think lindsay can have a good game here. I'm just going to be on the assumption. That lindsay is really going to be that lead running back And also david johnson is going up against his former team and the hopkins is going up against his former team. I forgot about that. I just started about that now as i was going to the players. So yeah that's going to be interesting Diop is gonna torch that texans defense. I can just see right now But yeah a lot of former players going against former teams in this game But yeah if watson plays favorable matchup watson doesn't play on fear will match up here But i you know what. I expect the texans in this game. If watson doesn't play they rely upon the running game in this game so maybe the running game find success in this game by yeah again. If if watson doesn't play it's kind of a middle of the road unfavorable. Or if it's say watson does play the favorable matchup i think because you know the cardinals defense like i said is you know not not it's i. It's it's okay. But i don't think it's going to be defense. That's going to suffocate opposing offenses. So moving on to the next match up on this schedule for the texans. The rams come to town to take on the texans a couple years ago in these two teams met the rams absolutely destroyed the texans and they were kind of dealing with a similar situation with a quarterback spots of deshaun watson. Doesn't play You know it's gonna be the second time these two teams meet that shawn watson will not be playing in this game But if he does why then goes so be a struggle. Because the rams defense is really good and i i just feel like the texans are just again not a good team I think the running game will struggle here because they've got to go up against aaron donald and that defensive front so i mean it's really unfavorable regardless i mean if the shawn watson doesn't play this team is getting killed in this game so i really do not expect anybody to do well from the texans in this game and brandin cooks. He's going against former team. If if using trade at that point or something like that If he's on the teams and we going up against his former team and he'll be going up against jalen ramsey most likely so that should be interesting match up but again if you got. If you don't have to sean watch football. I mean. I just really do not expect the texans offense to be good. I'm gonna keep on saying it so moving onto week nine. The texans go to miami to take on the dolphins now. The dolphins are one team that has been linked to shawn watson through this whole fiasco. So it'll be interesting to see the shawn watson maybe finds his way out of houston and ends up on miami. But i i don't think so so i do think that it's again unfavorable match up again because because i mean you know. Miami's defense is good. And i just think if watson doesn't play it's just going to be a long day for that houston offense so I again. I think maybe the running game does a little bit. Okay in this game maybe Maybe cooks could do something. I don't know it's just it's gonna be a struggle it is going to be a struggle So yeah another unfair will match up here for the texans of watch watson doesn't need not play so we they've by week eleven. Go tennessee to take on the titans. Now i know. I have been saying that the titans defense is not that good and that is true by going up against this texans offensive watson doesn't play. I think they can do very well in this match up so again. I'm going to have to say it's an unfavorable matchup. Four the texans. I think this is a game where they again. The running game may be can find success in this game. But i think through the air throwing the football. I just do not think with the quarterback situation. If it's not watson they are not going to do good in this game. So it's an unfavorable matchup watson does play. That's that's a different story because these teams gone to shoot outs last year and there were a lot of points being scored and brandin cooks. Well will fuller is no longer there. But he did well in those games. You know I think i think even david johnson was okay and these games too. But i mean if watson plays it's favorable matchup if he doesn't play unfavorable match up here so now moving onto week twelve the jets come to town now. I know i did say this could be one of those games with texans. Defense does okay because of the rookie quarterback but zac wilson's lighting it up for what i said you know. I think it all depends on if zach wilson does play well But on the other side jets. Got a good defensive front. I think that running the football may be a little bit of a struggle. I think watson plays. I think it's a fair will match up For him but i think if he doesn't play again it's an unfavorable matchup But the you know the jets have tendency to sometimes lay in egg in a match up so maybe this could be one of those cases..

"Prior to the last round so mcdowell scattered here at the seven nine. Yeah makes sense after goddard T- law goes Mike asaki says started kind of had to reach their for tight end tight ends golan. Yup chenault kenyan drake james. Connor david johnson. Back to jake now. The nice thing about these mock drafts on sleeper is that the pixel within about two seconds. They come quick. So you've got to be ready ready to go right away here so Looking back really happy. That's got it. There have been so mad at myself if i would have been looking at my psyche. So happy went that way and then it's worked out perfectly. Hit this pick is easy for me. It's brandin cooks efan with alan. I will i love wearing like it. I was hoping he would make it back to me. But i didn't think he would make it through to picks years no Best thing about me being brandin cooks truth or is that there are few and far of us between so i'm gonna get cooks in almost every league. I want him in. So i'm going to have dang near one hundred percent exposure as your wide receiver. Three yep a wide receiver one on the crappy. Football team leads to good fancy things up high volume might like you said wide receiver three. I'm not upset about it despite the unknown question mark or the unknown a quarterback room emphasis on unknown. What to expect with that davis mills. Tyrod taylor ain't gonna be watson have funneled cooks i'd after cook's goes aaron rodgers and roggio back to me all right so we have two running backs three wide receivers can kinda work on some flex..

"How does you know if he you know. He gets the bulk of the targets. In you know he becomes a red zone. You know threat with the patriots. But we'll have to wait and see what that so then after that. I have the wide receiver for the colts. Michael pittman low on my mock draft. I put him very late. You know. I definitely think he could be the top target in this colts offense. You know the. Ty hilton is aging. You know he's not the ty hilton was you know four or five years ago. You know and michael pittman. He was okay last year. And i definitely think you know carson wentz is going to you know. Use him and have him as a target along with ty hilton When i think michael pittman he could be a guy that could be flex option. You know maybe even wide receiver to on your team you know. I definitely think he'd go a little bit sooner. But i don't know. I just feel like you know this. Is you know where. I put him and you know again. The mock draft is not perfect. I i don't think it is perfect by any means but you know this is where i put him i do think that carson wentz i it's going to he's going to help carson wentz out. He's definitely going to help them out. And yeah he's a guy that you know is looking to make a jump in year two so then after him. I have the wide receiver for the houston. Texans believe it or not brandin cooks now. I feel like brandin cooks. You know. I think he could do all right. I mean he's definitely probably the best fantasy option on houston right now. Outside of if to shawn watson does play you know and cooks had a nice year with houston last year you know and with or going down with the suspension you now that you know that that kind of opened the door for more targets for brandin cooks and he did have some big games was definitely a solid flex option for me last year when i picked him up in fantasy You know and and i do think that you know brand cooks. I mean. I don't know i really don't know what his contract situation is. And stuff like that. But i do believe that someone could swoop in i if houston is gonna do bad this year which i think they. Will you know someone could swoop in and get brandin cooks in charge to trade for him. And i think brandon cooks got traded to a contender. You know that definitely would be something that. I would keep in mind because i don't think houston's contending for anything this year other than maybe like the number one overall pick or a top five pick in so. I think that have cooks got traded to a contender that definitely would increase his fantasy value. And i think maybe that's something that some people got. Keep in mind that something. I really haven't talked about but yeah i mean this is probably a place where brandon cooks could yet take and i just feel like you know with what was what's going on houston if shawn watson does play. It's a different story than cokes. Maybe be a little bit higher. But i think because of the uncertainty with everything going on i mean he is in training camp which i really cannot believe i really did. Not talk to shawn watson for a very long time. Because i just you know. I didn't know what the the the story is. That i had no idea he was gonna play. I mean he's just got so much stuff going on. You know off the off the field stuff and you know it's something. I don't want to talk about it. This is a fantasy football podcast. Want again to all the legal stuff and you know all that just because you know. It's it's not something that you know. I wanna get into because again. Fantasy football podcast. You know But you know if the shawn watson does play this season brandin cooks definitely would be higher in the mock draft. But because you know. I still don't think the sean is going to play in own. I still think you know. We're gonna see tyrod taylor you know. Be the you know the quarterback or whoever else they have on their roster could be the quarterback. I would say that you know this is probably a good spot to put him. However like i said he could possibly get traded to a contender. I do think that can happen. You know so if that does happen you know. That's something to keep an eye on because you know he goes to a team that needs a wide receiver. That's in contention and you know that. That definitely helps his numbers in. Oh you know that's something. Fancy people got to keep in mind. So yeah brandin cooks next player on my mock draft so then after that. I have the running back for the jacksonville. Jaguars travis etienne obviously was a running back for clemson and you know urban meyer one of the draft him for trevor lawrence and i think you know of course. Trevor lawrence is definitely. You know thrilled to have his running back on his team. Continue their journey together from college into the nfl You know one of the interesting things. In the off season was that urban meyer. Was you know trying amount at wide receiver. He's taking a wide receiver. Et an and you know now. You gotta wide receiving core that consists marvin dj charge and chenault who is also was going to be expert in my mock draft. So all kind of talk about both of them. You know. it really doesn't make sense as to why you know. He was being tried out at the wide receiver spot. I think it's just because they got a lotta backfield with james robinson and carlos hyde. You know i. I think that's really the only thing i would say you know. I think that's the only thing you can really think about is. Maybe just because of the loaded backfield guys talented so you wanna give them more reps. You know you want him to be on the field but they could definitely do like to running back sets and stuff like that you know it's going to be interesting You know. I feel like if an injury does happen or somebody. Is you know if urban meyer wants to ride the hot hand. Hopefully you know. Then that's a different story. But i think as of right now. Just because of the uncertainty with jacksonville's backfield. I think these guys like james robinson. Net tanner gonna be taken later. And james robinson he was a solid fantasy. Pick last year. You know my friend picked him up after week. One and i. And i picked up malcolm brown so you know if i would have just been like. Oh you know this. James arms and guy was pretty good. Maybe i should get him instead of getting malcolm brown because every week for the rams it was a new running back james robinson you know was really the only guy. There that you know was running the football Because i believe that guy armstead that the giants picked up. You know he was supposed to be there running back running back and he got hurt so then they put in james robinson james robinson was pretty good. You know so. It's kind of unfortunate for james robinson. Just because of the season that he had and now you've got this crowded backfield in. But i will have to see what happens but espn. Yeah he's on here and then While he was the next year. And then i have chenault. La- viscous chenault He had a pretty good season last year. You know. I definitely think you know if an injury happen. Same thing with atf. Injury happens like to chart marvin jones. This guy is going to see an increase in targets and this receiving core is pretty good for. Jacksonville is very underrated receiving core. I like it a lot i think. Trevor lawrence is in a good situation. He does have a decent amount of weapons around him. Chenault is one of them now if it wasn't for dj charge and marvin jones. I think should definitely would be a little bit higher my mock draft but because those two guys are on this team i feel like you know. He's kind of the third option in terms of the wide receiver spots so. Yeah that's kind of with the jacksonville. Jaguars players then after chenault. I have the running. Back for the raiders kenyan drake..

"And then we'll get into all the quarterback stuff. What am i missing here. Because they was talking about who. He's upset that he's not offered the shawn watson news. I understand he reported to camp. He reported to camp because he doesn't want to get fine fifty thousand dollars a day and that's going to happen if he doesn't report he's not he's not any closer playing is he. Well they also the texans are. We just said he wanted to talk about well. I we work. Texans are open a trading. And i thought that was the bigger news right. Okay yeah i guess it just felt okay fine. I'll play that game. Hey he the. Texans are opened the trading to shawn watson and emailer similar. Well i mean you know if if that situation can be hard to find a better receiving core brandin cooks and anthony miller But maybe he can find a good snow. This made me. And i don't know that it matters too much and i'm really uncomfortable with drafting john watson at all at any point but it made me feel like a slight glimmer of hope that maybe there's a chance that the shawn watson does play a decent amount this year and obviously it's a moral conundrum for fantasy managers. We're going to let you decide that we're not everyone. We're not going to tell you what to do you. Yes for everyone absolutely for fan for franchises as well we know that his his court case is not going to be until after the season. So yeah and to be clear at this point. He has no criminal charges or criminal investigation. Right that i know the vote. i know. Say that without knowing for sure. I thought that they did open a criminal investigation. I will look it up but right now. Strike pets if i'm wrong. Yeah and that's i think the thing keep in mind first off the two teams that seem the most likely to be interested in trading shawn watson. There's the report. Our jonathan jones was on. Cbs sports. you're talking about this Philadelphia so for those of you in dynasty leagues. You gotta be a little concerned about jalen hurts and the miami you know because they have also shown express some interest from reports and they those are the two teams that have i think the assets that the texans would be looking for which according to chris. Mortensen are five of have phrase compensation of five things in return draft picks in players for twenty twenty one so it could be three picks as we've heard me first round picks into players so for example philadelphia. Let's give you three. I trump give the texas three first round. Picks jalen hurts and zakar. It's for example if they wanted to make a trade like that happen the secondary part this and this is factors in anthony. Miller is if by chance shawn watson plays or they get a quarterback upgrade over to rod taylor in davis mills. Let's jalen hurts. Let's say to sung by. Let's say it's another veteran. that comes back. new turn. Brandin cooks his value is going to be particularly pretty good..

"He was going to be a starting quarterback this year. I thought he was done with all the off the field stuff and just him being so disgusted with what the texans have done over the course of the past couple seasons now that he's supposedly going to training camp and he may be starting quarterback this year. I mean that changes a lot because he is arguably a top three quarterback in the league and if he does play this year he's gonna put a really big numbers and he increases the draft stock for guys like brandin cooks and the texans just traded for anthony miller who played previously played for the bears wide receiver. Got him got randall. Cobb you have kiki cutie. You have these guys. And then you have. That loaded backfield with philip lindsay. David johnson mark ingram. So if the shawn watson comes in and is quarterback this year texans. Offense is going to put up points one hundred percent. They were a hundred percent to put up points. They're not they're still not going to be a very good team but they are definitely going to put up points now again. This is this is a little bit of an overreaction because you know it just came out he you know and i can't. I can't even believe that. There's a possibility that shawn watson can play. 'cause i really to be honest with all the off the field stuff and everything like that. I did not think there was a chance that he was going to play this year. And now he's possibly going to be playing this year and well they will not even that but he's going to be showing up to training camp so that's just a small step in to you. Know him possibly playing. And i listen. I you know it's it would unfortunately stink without him because you know he's one of the marquee players in this league and you know he's a guy that you know you love to watch him play and obviously a lot of you know off. The field stuff has happened. That's kind of changed his image a little bit. I mean everybody was kind of in his corner what he was doing with the texans. But you know certain things came out. And i'm not going into details with that but you know with all that stuff you know it. It kind of you know changed. Everybody's opinion on them and now really nobody. Nobody i. I would say really. Nobody's kind of in his corner as much as They were previously but you know if he does come back and he does play for the texans in this upcoming season. He's going to be one of the first cuba taken off the board. He is really talented. And you know again that raises the draft stock for pretty much. Everybody that's on the texans offense Now by that much. I think really the best guy to take brandin cooks. Brandin cooks really did have a good season last year for houston at now. They will fuller so brandon cups. Brennan cooks as the first is the number one option now for this team and you know producer shawn watson does come back and play. He's going to be really good With the shawn watson but you know as the running backs it's just it that that's still a clustered backfield. I mean you probably still stay away from that but you know. We'll see what happens with that. Also some other small stuff now so dede westbrook the wide receiver for the jaguars will now not with jaguars anymore. He signed with the vikings. So that kinda gives the vikings a third wide receiver. So now i was talking about. How irv smith junior. He's gonna kinda jump up and be that number three option. I still think he probably can be in. Dd west will definitely fight for targets as that number three option for minnesota doesn't really impact eland in deland dig stealing and justin jefferson. No i don't think it does. Those are the number one and number two wide receivers. I don't think dede westbrook shirley gonna take anything away from them. So i don't really think there's anything to worry about there but that is still a nice. I think it's a decent signing for the vikings again it gives them another wide receiver to work with also other news Chandler jones is reportedly requested a trade from arizona. And this is something you know that i kind of didn't expect. But he's kind of unhappy with his contract situation and you know you had him and. Jj watt did those two guys have been the sack leaders for the past. i there was a statistic. I think last couple of years they they were one and two in sacks and you know the the cardinals defense again. it's not going to be dominant this year. But with those two guys you expected them to be a really good pass rush and now he wants out now. He's still expected to report to training camp but if he gets out and he doesn't wanna play for the cardinals that does hurt the cardinals defense and i think the cardinals defense definitely would get drafted. You know a lot more than it has been because of those two guys but now if you take chandler jones out of the picture. Jj watt who has dealt with injuries over the past couple of years last year. He i think he was relatively healthy for last year but dealt with injuries basically his whole career. And now you're getting ready getting rid of chandler jones and hassan radic went to carolina. You know so it would. Now you have an aging. Jj watt as your best pass rusher. I just don't i don't like that. So and that..
"brandin cooks" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"Play to find the guy's whole career and then he's kind of bounced around the league since the problem is that the stage couldn't pay him originally cuz they wanted to pay Michael Thomas. They couldn't pay him. Originally. They traded the Patriots dangerous weren't going to pay him cuz they don't pay anybody. So they trade him to the Rams the Rams side him to this gross contract that again. He's a good player, but he was never going to be worth that contract. So he gets trading around the league two teams who just kind of are willing to spend for a year to bolster their receiver Corps and give it a shot. Now that contracts kind of come back down to earth. It's more in line with with his worth and I can get it for next to nothing cuz the Texans are dumb. So, you know go get them. I think he'd be a great fit. If you put put speed on one side in terms of Brandin Cooks. If you put size on the other in terms of Corey Davis you go out you get one of those slots High performers in the draft. You have to Kobe Myers is kind of a wild card who can move between all three roles and then you figure out the tight end that's like a pretty good offense. Yeah, you know, I mean just have to figure out the quarterback but I you know, you have all the pieces that's at pass-catcher where you have a pretty decent offense there. Yeah. No, I really like it. And if they do go that route that maybe that does open them up to somebody more like a Jew Jew who is your life and mostly inside and be that I called in the power slot. That's kind of what that mold is like big slot. Yep Godwin, you know, those types of guys are playing seventy 80% of their snaps inside and kind of playing as almost like a detached. I tend essentially in that role. Let's talk about the tight ends though because none of these tight ends got tagged which I think was a little bit of a surprise to me because the tag number for tight ends is not very high birth. Hunter Henry and Johnny Smith. Neither one of those guys got tagged. They're both hitting the open market..
NFL Week 14 injuries: Christian McCaffrey's new issue, Antonio Gibson out of practice again
"Injuries we paying attention to the bigger buzzkill of the week on the injury or injury front here christian mccaffrey. A third injury now. with the shoulder Following up now also with a quad injury had high ankle sprain. Keep matt. He's he's not gonna play this week hopes are he will be back week. Fifteen or sixteen. But if we have. Mike davis there 'cause they'll lineup versus the panthers rb one this week antonio gibson that looking good got exactly one. Snap against the steelers on monday night before you heard a toe injury we're gonna watch his status heading towards the end of the week. He's out peyton barber on the early down work. Obviously jd mckissic. We'll get the pr action there. The pass catching back. Josh jacobs unlikely to play this week with an ankle issue. You're out devante booker. last week. It didn't work out. I'm not very optimistic about it this week. Either if out to that's a situation to avoid to straightness practices for. Aj brown the study for the titans with an ankle issue. This'll probably be around friday. I'll be looking at the most on practice tomorrow but take out. That's certainly a big blow to receivers out already for carolina. This week have christian mccaffrey. But also without dj more curtis samuel kobe. Nineteen list or both of those guys robby anderson. He's gonna get a ton of targets brandin cooks. We thought he might have had a fifth or sixth. I think it's now six concussion last week when he ended up medical tent. It looks like it's more of a neck injury foot issue. I am optimistic. He played just fuller out. Top targeting group brings one more week before we've probably take him back from that collapsed lung case. Him hill. Jalen hurts madge. Up is the two quarterbacks this week and that is going to be a very unique football game to watch analyst

Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.

Michael Brown's father demands case re-opening 5 years after fatal shooting
"You missed out a medieval times john. I was the night before bowling right and then you were the night after medieval times and what i hear you made the apps you're like who is it lauren hill that does concerts and shows up an hour and a half late and sings for ten thousand leaves that was you i was there on time then i was like kaiser soza and you're gone which isn't a bad move but they did get one very good picture of you in a what looks depite dr yeah medieval garb and they actually gave me a mace <hes> so venice mason amazed by the way big question today. Is this straight edge mace or or is this venice mace girl in the straight edge. The guy in the back is yelling. Venice mace which basically is is whether or not mason shows up stoned but i think you had to drive straight edge medicines straight edge mace someday. I'll do a show where orig- venice mace and everybody will invite be invited to see exactly how stupid i am actually make the show better yeah hey so. Are you gonna watch the ram game tomorrow night yeah. I'm gonna watch what are you watching for. The rams are are not gonna play any of the starter correct so what your but your big ram fan yep like. I said i watch most of the charger game last night. Actually the chargers looked okay. They lost but they played a lot of backups so the rams are gonna play nothing but back right. What are you watching four. What are you interested in well number. One is <hes> darryl henderson the running back out of memphis who's going to get <hes> reps tomorrow night and who i think because gonna figure into the offense this year in a little background on him. He averaged almost seven yards of touch right at memphis and he's the person i've heard him. Most compared to is darren sprains. He's a very fast third down back who can both run and catch yeah so i wanna see what he looks like because i think with the rams a ah given how todd girlies knee is sort of a question mark. I like malcolm brown. A lot and i want to see what darrell henderson's got in the secondary. I'm looking for taylor rap wrap. Who i think is gonna play tomorrow night. Taylor app is a safety who is gonna be eric. Wells backed up and it's going to see i think significant time this year so i wanna see taylor rap out of washington and then i wanna see actually i'm kind of curious. See blake bortles yeah. I wonder how much he's going to play but that is an upgrade jeered garbage upgrade. Your golf for a young guy has not missed much time once he was given that starting job. I don't think he's mr mr start yet and the amount of time sean manion played as goths backup or very limited but blake bortles is a series blake bortles a former top five picking the n._f._l. Ralph experience right and so i think by the way who's the third string quarterback brandon allen so he's gonna play tonight yeah tomorrow night but i'm expecting to see bortles last year. Manion played a lot it preseason and <music>. I'm expecting to see bortles so bortles henderson. Who is the texas am receiver lesser. Josh miranda reynolds he could play you know a lot of people think that josh josh reynolds is is going to be an impact either share. They've got really four receivers to go to they've got robber woods and obviously brandin cooks and cooper cup and josh reynolds is going to be a guy who figures into the offense.
