"Reason that i'm worried is because the gruden talk fest Verses the transactions of what. They're doing you know they put in a claim. Was it royce freeman. They tried to claim on waivers. Yes And then they brought in kerryon johnson for work at. They signed peyton barber. Like i think the carry-on just is the backup. They do have a history of this. Every offseason theoretic was was talking. Point on this show last year is just one of those things where when you combine it with like. Oh someone's missing practices and were working out running backs it. Just it makes the little. The spidey senses go. Is there more here. Ramachandra stevenson dislocated his thumb. Last week in practice might still be available for sunday by not Could be a an interesting spot star game for james wight in week one if insured it like if you were ask you this. Are you worried enough about race swift where you would start james white in that game over swift. No no okay. Maybe not then Chris godwin thursday night game limited with a quad injury There was a report about antonio brown missing practice but later came out that it was a maintenance day for his knee. I think both of these players will be fine ahead of the game. But i know that the line is jumping all over the place. Yes for thursday night. I mean you have zack. Martin news with dallas. You've got this news with godwin But it's going up for tampa is going up for tampa. Yes okay so. We do have thursday night preview on today's episode of the show. So we're gonna talk about this game in detail. Saw righteously those there unless you guys have anything to add. Not all right. Today's news notes brought to you by sleeper. A reminder get those breaking news alerts by downloading the sleeper app season starting soon so you should grab that You would seen latavius. Murray's cut news last night and you would have been the first and then run around the neighborhood announcing it off. Your waivers were open. You could grab tony jones immediately. That's true tony brooke stones was confirmed. There's tony brooks james. And there's a tony janis. They all i can. They're both running backs. Also i don't know if you guys realize this. There is now a tony brooks jones junior when that is him is name forever. What because declared oh darn l. anderson situated ellie anderson. I thought you'd wikipedia or something in israel mental name was brooks still could be. Maybe don't yeah. Everyone's brooks's confused over there. Everybody's confused now let's Let's get into those undrafted. Gyms storm are line. don't respect all right. These are players to keep an eye on to add to your watch list. Could be somebody that jay. Jason brought up such a good point yesterday. I love preseason training. Because you can do to for ones right now open up roster spot and then add one of these players if you go out there and you you take a couple of players with mysterious futures that you are. You're just not sure if they're gonna pan out like one of them to koby myers like maybe there's more value. Now for jacoby myers then. There will be during the season. I don't know people view certain players will fuller. You know there are certain players that there's a lens that you know. Five people on your league may hate the guy. Five people might think he's promising for the upcoming year you can go to for one. Pick up a better player and then go out one of these six players or another one of the undrafted gyms out there. Yeah i mean. I feel like we could you know. We're bringing up two guys each. But i feel like we could bring up six seven eight guys each you know. There are so many players out there bryan edwards. not someone. we're talking about today. Who is available in a lot of trump wants semantics trick. Wants these guys. It's like you're gonna find out week. One what their involvement is and they either hit and great. You've got someone or you cut them and have fun with week. One waivers and so my first pick here. Donald parnham junior junior. I always thrown in there Brooks james is. The donald brooks are him june. He's six eight to fifty six. The tight end for the los angeles chargers. He's being completely ignored in each and every draft six eight to fifty six twenty four years old ninety nine th percentile dominator rating in college. He is an athlete and he's stepping into a role. That was very valuable last year. Jared cook got the offseason buzz but parham looks like the value to me. He he stepping into a spot where hunter henry went. Sixty four six thirteen and four last year. You evan. ascending quarterback and improved offensive line. There's going to be touchdown opportunity for him. I think he's scored three times last year. Just on very limited amounts of targets. So i think parham is one of the perfect add-ons like if you're looking at adding him or kind of an old busted tied-in flyer you get potentially higher payout with yeah parham junior in all all kinds of piggyback on this for the chargers and i liked the parham pick because who is who is the number two target. I'm not counting austin But it's key now is locked in mike. Williams is like the the target percentages. Just it wasn't there with with justin herbert. He's he's an excellent player but will he really ascend to be the number two guy world where hunter henry was seeing. You know like a fifteen percent target share So parham is in play and also his teammate. Josh palmer The third round rookie that the chargers just picked up. We had austin equa on this show mention his name when when we said. Hey who's who could be someone. Excuse me surprising on this third rounder. Yeah yeah that could be interesting. That people aren't talking about and he brought up josh palmer note palmer's is he. It's very difficult because for fantasy football. You know you want to see a good production profile. I wanna see a wide receiver in college. Really do something because the correlation of that turning into of a superstar at the nfl level. There is a there is a high correlation there and these guys that really don't have a profile of any production just palmer was basically a five hundred yard per game or per season player..

"What do you think. What do you think latavius ends up or do you have any. I'm going to start with tony jones. Congratulations to him. Working your way up from an undrafted free agent to being in this position which the backup saints running back. That's a good position to be in We've seen have success for fantasy football we've seen have success for real life football latavius murray got He got done kind of dirty here pulling up at the last second to say. Hey man if you want to be on this roster we're gonna need to take a pay cut even though the season starts this weekend but tony jones interesting. He should have a six bench league. Tony jones should probably be picked up in the chance that he has standalone value. He's not just He might not just be a backup running back one one hundred percent. I mean tony. Jones is an undrafted. Jim this is a guy that is on your waiver wires right now. If you've already finished your drafts And he should probably be picked up by half of the teams in your league. Probably have a player worse on your bench. Then tony jumped because this is this is a team that has dominated total fantasy points at the running back position for the last decade. And they're going to need that more than ever latavius murray You know had spot starts last year where he was good and and the truth is the he was cut because of what they saw out of this undrafted rookie running back coming. He's he's he has juice. He looked really good in preseason. I remember a play where he was running away from defenders. This was early in the game. First stringers and i was like wow. He was i. I wasn't even sure who it was at first And then i found the name and the ball started rolling and now they cut latavius so i think he has value the season even redraft not just dynasty under after free agent challenge. Would you rather have tony brooks junior or tie saen well johnny jones junior. What did i say you brooks again. You gotta tony brooks problem. Who is who is this. Tonal i keep saying tony brooks jones. I swear. I read that somewhere at some point in time. That was part of his name at some point and then has been removed brooks urine authority on this name. Do you know where this game. Prop there is a tony brooks james though as a running back in college. I don't know. If somehow that is i am i am crossing those i and of course the incredibly famous tony brooks race car. Driver fra who had british do. The grand prix is back in the fifties. That who you're talking about. Let me return to the question. would you rather you're putting in a bid this morning are you signing tyson. Who's going to back up. Gus edwards undrafted free agent on a great rushing attack. Or are you signing tony jones. Junior undrafted free agent on a great rushing attack backing up alvin kamara. I mean obviously camaro is the more proven starter of the two right. But where are you putting your. I mean jason right. They very very similar comps. I'm gonna go with the team. That i think is going to run the ball. More in the rich is is the ravens. I so that would be a tie. Ceann williams williams. I was lot him just slightly ahead of tony. John's but if you're putting the claims in our. I don't mind double up. Yeah i would put claiming for both of them. All right. moving on level was added to the ravens. Practice squad the original report. Like i said was that he's gonna be brought up to the regular roster assuming they don't sign somebody else but Bell don't care. I mean peter schwartz meet that people care p. This is a big name. This is a fantasy superstar of yesteryear and people see love bell signing in replacement of an important fantasy asset. This is worthless. do not pick up love. Bell do not play love bell. Do not make a waiver claim online. Bell he will he will let you all down. Do you remember when devante freeman bounced between different teams with the big name. I mean love bells at this stage of his career where he was giving a humongous opportunity. Esi was with the kansas city chiefs offense and did nothing with it and showed nothing on the field. That made you go. Oh boy. I wish they gave him more opportunity. Know what happened over. The course of the year was andy. Reid was like mandera. Williams needs to get in there more than love bell and while he produced for fantasy for the jets in two thousand nineteen that was just an overwhelming amount of volume. He wasn't wasn't good. He wasn't efficient. He just was there number one guy that they paid a whole bunch of money to so they were going to force feed him. The ball left bell hasn't been good for fantasy football since two thousand seventeen. Yeah so don't do anything about it. Ignore it we taken out of the news. Cut this all out. No it needs to be in here so we could tell. People don't prioritize adding levy on bell all right. Josh jacobs was absent from a second straight practice on tuesday however however he will return now. Why does this report say. He isn't expected to return the field to the field on thursday. It says as an executive until until i'm sorry. Yeah he is supposed to be back on thursday. I don't know what to make of this report. People close to the team. Make me believe it's not a big deal. This sounds like it is probably a personal off the field reasons especially if he's going to be gone until thursday and it's currently wednesday so an injured player the report would be. We'll let see if he gets out there in practices so he was named a team captain last week. Along with darren waller as well. I am a little bit worried..

"Is going to work and we're all in different places today were all broadcasting from somewhere else everybody spread all over the tristate area but we'll bring you the latest everything you need to know we'll keep it calm we'll keep you on top of everything get you up to date let me just see if we get the latest numbers here now I I know the numbers are growing every time you see these numbers they seem to be shooting up that is because there's more testing is just a result of all these additional tests being out there so it's not that the the spread is picked up at all it's just that the testing is picked up now you could get as a member even bear the Blasi oh says you may get up to ten thousand cases in New York before the end of next week but that's just the result of more testing most cases are not serious in fact if you look at the numbers of people getting tested have been checking into this out of the people getting tested only about twenty percent of testing positive that's not twenty percent of the population is twenty percent of those being tested which means they're already sick with something so in eighty percent of the cases it's turning out to be something else it's turning out to be the flu are great just a bad colder or something like that out of the twenty percent that test positive only twenty three percent of that group is it is in bad enough shape to have to go to the hospital so the numbers sound bad right now New York City it's eighteen hundred and seventy one cases but remember that's out of a whatever it is seven million people that's a small number of had eleven deaths in New York City in the case of each death it was somebody with serious medical problems to begin with that's why they weren't able to survive the corona virus there is an Amazon worker at a queens delivery center the tested positive they vote close that center there scrubbing it down there's a Ryker's island inmate that's tested positive Harvey is not there anymore we'll get to that coming up hospitals look okay right now the mayor whining and screaming that there's not enough equipment for a week from now but the quickness being made around the cloud cuckoo clock in rushed everywhere New York state you got three thousand cases of coronavirus read twenty one deaths in the state that's specially yeah that's a that's about even with the percentage wise with New York City governor Cuomo has now pushed a mandatory executive border a business can only have fifty percent of its work force on site and he's saying only forty five days to get through this before it peaks president the White House saying fifteen days we'll know where we're headed in fifteen days of all this isolation we'll we'll get an idea of what's going on we'll see we've turned that corner we keep hearing about Italy the horrible numbers of Italy thirty thousand but remember that's way out of a way out of proportion to the United States we have five times the population and we're nowhere near that number also remember things just spread badly in Italy they always differences they've got I think two million flu cases that's a lot for a country with a small population like that so things spread too fast there the clothes shopping centers amusement parks all that kind of stuff Connecticut has already closed ordered that the closing of every what they call body care of business that means nail salons hair salons masseuses all that expect that everybody to do that the sentiment more testing sites everywhere Westchester five hundred and thirty eight cases that's a lot of cases for a small county like that Long Island is us start to grow they've got a hundred and eighty three cases you've got a hundred and sixteen and Suffolk County a lot of those Upper East Side Manhattan nights fled the city left ran to the Hamptons you know everybody had a house in the Hamptons they're all out there the problem is I think they've got a case in south Hampton hospital and they're worried about things happening out there people you think they're hoarding here you should see all these wealthy people in the Hamptons the Cinderella there reports one customer came and spent eight thousand the next customer spent twelve thousand dollars these people are stocking up for months on end drive through a facilities we can get tested being set up Stony Brook Jones beach new Jersey's got four hundred and twenty seven cases that had five deaths already Connecticut is growing a little ninety six cases they've been pretty good there on top of things United States it's eighty seven hundred cases now remember we get three hundred fifty million people so that's eighty seven hundred cases the president has been getting a lot of praise member told a couple of weeks or sometimes he doesn't seem to know doesn't have a handle on the situation he's a quick learner give me a couple of weeks now he's looking good even governor Cuomo raising them yesterday saying he's been great on this he's really been there for us he's on top of this I'm sure the governor Cuomo might need to get tested for fever here I got who couldn't believe it but this is where you it is as we said last week you can tell in the crisis what what somebody's like the real character comes out in a crisis so in the case of a mayor de Blasio you got a guy that seems to act like you just started two days ago doesn't know what he's doing he's whining screaming yelling look so stressed out in the case of Cuomo he's looking like a real leader he's holding these long detailed press briefings and look at the way he handles and look at look at the Blasi looking all frightened and anxious and a winding look at Cuomo in his briefing sitting back in the chair dressed casually speaking casually it's a good manner when this is all over expect in true Cuomo to be looked at by the Democrats for something bigger Biden nowhere to be seen on this but the there's a couple of other things about president trump he's with grated a couple of things one is working with corporations getting things done with corporations so part of the problem a major part of the problem is we depend on China for everything that's where all our prescription drugs come from that's where the masks are made that's where a lot of our hospital gear is made to the president of pensive that whole team they've worked with corporations to get everybody to set up supply chains in America working twenty four seven I think it's three AM now producing masks they think they can produce a million a week or something like that so the working round the clock he's been working with all the supermarket to change the food suppliers have got all their resources going twenty four seven you don't have to worry about food we will have plenty of food that's not a problem everybody in the field says they'll be plenty of food even in Italy the worst disaster we've seen in all of this people reporting from Italy the one thing they have is food there supermarkets are all stocked no shortages of anything so don't keep hoarding everything you don't have to do that I know right now there's some empty shelves with toilet paper paper towels those are all being restocked there's more on the way Amazon has hired a hundred thousand extra people to get this going globally the number of cases two hundred and fifteen thousand two hundred and fifteen thousand cases but let's just put that in perspective there's ten million flu cases right now that's a huge difference to earn fifteen thousand versus ten million so just just bear all that in mind it's it's it sounds bad but but it could be a lot worse we've but when you look back on all this now is not the time to do this but when they do the after action report and look back on what happened you gonna find out the impeachment was a big problem on this whole matter bill Reilly I think was the first to point this out the outbreak in China happen in mid to late December it was early January where we should have been watching this the media should have been all over this in January watching this outbreak it was getting out of control then and we didn't see it because the entire media twenty four seven was on the impeachment that's all they focused on twenty four seven they never broke away for anything else the China virus then was a huge problem and we should have been on top of it the give president trump credit for one thing this is the single most important act of all in the middle of January in the middle of that impeachment he decided to ban travel from China that's why our numbers aren't worse than they are that's where numbers are relatively low for all the countries in the world we're in tenth place as far as number of cases the China ban took place in January that really saved us from disaster and the reason nobody paid any attention to this was the impeachment went till I think the end of January so the meeting was totally distracted not focused on this virus that was coming the president somehow was put in the China travel ban since it happened sometime I supposed it's got against that problem everyone can see that I'm normal right now the president trump China vibes they think things are going everything after this is all in the China my lives the purpose of that is damaging they they.
