K TV talked to Chris Kirk getting on the internet and looking for job opportunities looking for online when he's not on furlough, Kirk administers contracts for the hundreds of millions of dollars the forest service. Nhs on fighting wildfires. A local store owner saw that TV story and offered Kirk a temporary job what you is basically throw freight around low boxes, I'm vases, stock shelves and work a cash. Register Kirk says, it's quite a change from his forest service job. And even though he's earning less than a quarter of his federal salary. He's thankful for the work and for his new employers flexibility as soon as the government shutdown ends, I have to drop whatever I'm doing and go back to work in Florida. Dorothy, Dearborn also administers contracts for the government. But for the space agency NASA on a single mom story. I live paycheck to paycheck. You're going says, she's using no interest and low interest credit cards to get by inter family. As offered help finding a temporary job has been difficult. She did apply to a restaurant. The first question. They asked me they said he worked for NASA said, yes, they said your allowance. Yes. And they said are you planning? On going back. I guess they said, oh, we're not interested in that's not gonna work for us. Right now. We are only looking for people who are going to stay.

My name is Frank Repola work, the National Oceanic in that miss fear could ministration and I live in Charleston, South Carolina, reportedly is a graphic designer and illustrator he's worked at Noah for nearly twenty years where he takes scientific data and puts it informs the rest of us can understand.

He developed a plan to be prepared for the next partial government shutdown one decided to do is go and get my EMT certificate repulsed says when he's working at Noah he volunteers as an emergency medical technician with the local rescue squad. Now that he's on furlough. He landed part. Time EMT job is a lot of medical transport. And what I mean by that is a lot of transporting patients from hospital hospital. They are a backup for the nine one. One system reportedly says the new job helped ease the financial burden of this shutdown still he's disappointed the country is in this position. I feel a little betrayed by politicians. You know, they take in an oath of office to serve our country. And I do the same. I got into this many years ago, and I choose to in a way serve my country. And I expect the same out of my politicians, reportedly, and the other is interviewed for this story are careful to say their views are their own not their agencies. Most also said they were uncomfortable speaking publicly, but given that this is now the longest partial shutdown in US history. They hope doing so will encourage the president and congress to resolve their differences. Jeff Brady NPR news.

Because he didn't then he starts some sort of a shoe line or something he's a business guy now. Oh is he I think so. Yeah. Good for him. I thought Justin Timberlake just finished his his tour ended Saturday night after one hundred fifteen shows they finally put it out of its misery. With this doesn't. Oh, no. It wasn't Justin quality. I didn't think too much from that new stuff. Yeah. It wasn't him dancing and all right? It is a tax day. It's one of the top trending topics ashtec tax day, along with Nikki and instinct because they were joining Arianna 'Grande onstage, which looked crazy ligament is apparently had they had a technical problem and her might dropped out while she was performing they had technical difficulties with all the major acts. It was crazy that especially Nikki trying to wrap Arianna goes. I we can't hear anything like through Nikki's wrap. It was pretty bizarre. But what are you going to go next week in the wrap this up? So there's a bird called it's called a commissaire. Let me see this. Right. A con commissaire copen cassowaries a guy owned a CASA wary, which is native to Australia. He lives in Florida. He decided to keep it as a pet. It. Basically looks like an ostrich or an Email. Scientists have called it the the world's most dangerous bird because while it can't fly. It has dagger like claws on its feet. Well, this guy he's in his seventies. Seventy five name is Marvin hollows kept one of these as a pet well over the weekend. He went into feed the CASA wary and it killed him Claude him to death. Oh, Hama guys pretty pretty gruesome, pretty ugly. The authorities in Florida say that no one's under danger no-one's endanger because he the bird never got out of its pen. He just went in there to feed it seventy five years old. You have to get all these kind of special permits to keep one of these things in it Claude him to death. But why would you want one? Why does it seem like it would be a good? Companion kinda pit just seems weird. It's ugly. He he was using it as a breeder. But again, what are you breeding them for if nobody wants this thing? Native to Australia New Guinea, so you know, it's dangerous from Australia is mess you up deadly deadly. And in this case, it was in seventy five years old once it got him down on the ground, it proceeded just really make a mess out of him. Wouldn't you get its claws cut or get it declawed? You would think you would take some type of action does that keep it from being able to move because the claws are part of its toes maybe talents, and who are you going to get to do that? Like, if you're the one taking care of it. You're the craziest one on food chain like there's no vet that's gonna be like clip them or you can take them into. That's Mark or you can take him into to get a little something done at a nail salon. They do it. You know, that'd be something.

My girlfriend follows some of the hottest women I have ever seen the most beautiful women I've ever seen in my life. And I was afterwards to follow a lot of super attractive women on social media. She said, yes, it's inspiration there either like a bikini models or workout women or something like that. They're all all always wearing very little clothing. But she said, yeah. Before I go to the gym. You look are if you're thinking about eating something that oh, I shouldn't be eating. You'll take a look at need to put that down. And I mentioned it to Sasser today and SAS did you do the same thing? And it's apparently a common thing. So last week we had ladies tell us the. Social media accounts that their significant others follow that they hate. And some of them were hilarious. Some of the real weird. But some of them were really funny all of them were entertaining. So with women following so many things for inspiration. There have to be some other things that you follow that, you just don't want anybody to know. Except for maybe even now, but you can remain anonymous. Is there anything SAS? You can't remain anonymous that you you really wouldn't want anybody to know that you follow until now. Yeah, I followed count called dill of Disneyland. Ladies write that down because it's an account. You wanna follow? It's just hot dad strollers with their kids around. Disneyland.

And I was in middle school back in two thousand I still play too.

If a guy is really great looking he's in super muscle shape. And all. I think it should race his hotness. If he's wearing a tank top at DisneyWorld one what? I just. But like tank tops in public when you're not working out if you're grown, man. And you're not playing basketball. The way I look at it is a muscle tank. Correct. You don't have muscles. Don't wear it. If you have muscles where the muscle, tink. We'll I'm just saying I'm saying someone of class. Oh. Certain right. I just don't sport around as your clothing today. So you say TJ what about if it's around water if you're going to the beach? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That that's a that's the thing. But if you're going to DisneyWorld or to dinner. I don't know. I don't know if the restaurants at DisneyWorld allow men with tank tops in there. A lot of restaurants won't let women come in tanks. But they won't let men excuse me. This is the rainforest cafe.

She didn't know there was an an Instagram page about hating her mother-in-law out right now. And one lady wanted you to know SAS that she follows the DisneyWorld account that you that you. That's quite a thing. Why would a naked got need this much rope? This TJ show. There's a guy who suing his parents. And this guy, obviously does not care. What people think about him? He has. No shame. It's crazy. Nick. Show wanna save up to seventy five percent on domestic or international airline tickets, then call low cost airlines for prices, so low we can't publish them. Call eight hundred two eight seven forty seven sixteen eight hundred two eight seven forty seven sixteen. Coming up on the TV show. You love it. But nobody else really does. What's highly? Underrated in European about thirty minutes on the show. Okay. Listen to this guy who. Who does not care about what people think of him, obviously. It's a guy in Indiana. He's been identified only as Charlie Charlie. Back in October of twenty sixteen. He got divorced to move back in with his parents in grand haven, Michigan. So we moved out of his parents house in August of twenty seventeen because the police came for a domestic incident, and then he headed to Indiana. Sounds about right. So a few months later as parents drove there to drop off his stuff, but he noticed that. There was something missing which was his massive porn collection. Well, large boxes full of movies and two boxes of of playthings adult playthings, and he expected his parents to bring this to him. Well, he confronted him about it. And they told him they destroyed all of his dad says for his own good. It was an Email. He said for your own mental health and emotional health. I would have done the same. If I'd found a kilo of crack cocaine. Turns out Charlie was kicked out of both high school and college for selling pornography to other students. So he has a history with the pornography. So he suing his parents now for eighty six thousand dollars because he says a lot of the movies were rare and valuable. He also tried to press charges, but the prosecutor turned him down. Against his own parents yet because they threw away a ridiculous, porn collection, twelve bucks. And who? Well, who has the physical copies of the? And it doesn't even matter. How big the boxes are. The fact there are twelve of them of any size boxes that have adult material in any expected. His parents bring him to boxes that included his own toys. Let them collect he lives in grand haven, Michigan probably not a lot of joy and happiness happening in grand haven. Let them have the twelve boxes who cares. He's a grown grown, man. But can you imagine Reagan's? If you ask your parents. Hey, I need to bring me all my stuff. Yeah. You would never expect your mom and dad to bring you adult material. No. Yeah. I would expect my dad would keep it for himself. I would expect or at least cherry picked it. Yeah. Take the oldest one's out of browse the hot ones. Lovely ladies in the seventies. So I remember it being like. That's right. That guy will never get a date. Now, no woman would ever date that man. I mean, he's been smut peddlers since high school. He's the guy. Yeah. I mean, if he's gotten kicked out of high school and college for for doing that, then his parents, probably he's got this addiction. I'm going to help him with his addiction. Throw it away. Not knowing that if he's just into watching it, then that's not taking away the source of it completely. Right. I'm hanging. I'm hating on them. But I don't have anything worth ninety thousand dollars. But I mean, who's appraised it? That's the thing. That's good point. Yeah. Everybody thinks they've got something. That's rare. Never rare. Yeah. Ninety nine point nine percent of the time. You don't have anything. That's rare. It worth anything. The only thing he has. That's rare is his depth of loser. Nece? Coming up on now trading with Riggins. The countdown is on ten days fifteen hours. What's coming? You need to know in less than ten minutes and now trending there's more ACT GIC. It's not news. But it is the stuff that you'll really talking about the rest of the day. Dow trending with ribbons on the ace and TJ show. Okay. There's a big countdown.

This is a big day for him the big huge thing for him. Was there all weekend? Yeah. He left on Friday afternoon. I think do they have people that endorse his product runners that endorse that he has to ins with people come to see them or anything like that. I believe so okay. They their biggest one was what does that race that's across a country, and they go rafting, and hiking and rock climbing. It's one of those super like all Tremaine competitions. Right. They used to stuff like that. But yeah, he's up there. What's up dad, and it is tax day? So if you haven't gotten your taxes, and I mean, you're probably. I don't know.

They're calling it the biggest sports comeback in history of any sport. So really? I thought that would go to a game of some sort like a. A high speed game of football or baseball or hockey or something? I don't know that. I just thought I'm not saying this is not because I don't keep up with golf. I think they'd be more a return from injury like come back like like a person comes back to the game with Peyton Manning came back with Nick surgeries and everything and then won the Super Bowl. I'll take a neck surgery being worse than a back little back problem and some sexual rehab. Ever mentioned sexual rehab when they talk about his comeback. After after personal issues is heard it says personal issues for back problem for back surgeries. He wasn't even sure he'd ever been golf club again out here. He is they never say after that students sexual rehab. By the whole sexual rehab thing. They helped him to rehab is my say as is it the same thing as drug addiction. Oh, I don't know about that. But I know I know I thought you meant whether it was legit that he actually needed to go to that. Also PR thing I think anybody would think. All right. It was the place was in Mississippi.

There's and it doesn't have to be a food. I know. But this lady sent us a message that said the most underrated food French fries and gravy with butter. Yeah. Hot fries. I guess you cover them in butter and then pour gravy over. Yeah. I've had the fries with with a white creamy gravy, the milk gravy, poured over them. But I can't imagine butter would mess that up.

Underworld? I mean, there's nothing like being at the gym. And and seeing where the sweat drops coming from on the treadmill? I'm kidding about that. But. You can't work out.

You know, what what's what's a Cuban saying it's got pulled pork or just regular, pork? Ham and Swiss cheese, they the traditional comes with pickle. And mustard, but I don't like mustard. So I get it with mayonnaise. To pay. God bless him. This lady says I agree with TJ. No one to wear the way to go unless you're wearing addressed. Because that is just too risky. Also sleeping naked highly. Underrated. It so much cooler. There's nothing more annoying than having a shirt wrap around. Your body makes me feel trapped research at tones of benefits. Really sleep in. You know, we had that that whole women's health study thing by the garnered Florida aboard they said that really I think think it wasn't. Maybe it wasn't that specific group.

It's still stake of in hot or cold. Again. How often do you have leftover steak though, good point? That's a good point.

Ladies and gentlemen welcome back to the no laying a podcast Chris Kirk is today's guest. already feels like a long time ago that he won the King and the bear classic last week week, and a half ago here on the Korn Ferry tour I start on the ferry tour in a decade and he wins it. He's got pretty amazing story and I'm excited for you guys. Guys to hear it I'm not gonNA take too much time. over the past weekend at the travelers will Gordon earned himself quite a few more playing opportunities. His t three finished got special temporary membership he the most birdies in the field with twenty seven, which by quick math is almost seven around I. Know it's not the toughest golf course in the world, but you gotta hit the. The shots and will did it under severe pressure about as much pressure. You can play under as far as trying to get a make a livelihood on the PGA tour. He did that with the callaway maverick, Max driver apex, Pro Iron Jaws Wedges and is to lawn San Diego stroke lab putter while we're on the topic of Calloway staffers.

An later news Hendricks Hendrix favorite Ryder Cup partner of all time all that and more on the Hendrix and almost an hour podcast without any further delay here is Chris Kirk. So it seems like you kept the game sharp during the layoff. What we're games like in in Athens and take us to what you've what you've got on. Your own property is far as Golf Practice Facility Yeah on my my place, we live in Athens Georgia on about forty acres, or so south of town I've got a putting green room and driving range outback where I can hit balls, and you know work on wedges and just do whatever I think A lot more baseball gets played on the driving range in golf, but that's how it goes a bunch of kids running around here. Do you use a backyard driving ranges? Much I don't have one of these. Of course. Most people at home don't have one of these and I in my head I. Think you know I would be there every single day if it was right there in front of me, but is it like that in reality? No I don't use it as as much as you would think. If I'm really going to go, try to get some quality practice center or play obviously I'm still going to go out to the golf course, but it's it is awesome. God you know. With kids after dinner and hit a few balls or If I'm working on something or mess around club. It's it's awesome to be able to just walk out your door and go hit ten three words down there whatever and yeah, it's. It's been fantastic to have and really a beautiful part of the property we're. Do you play golf when your home? And what are what are the Games like they're? Who Do you play with? Our other pros in the area that you teed up with often take us to what that looks like. I play mostly at Athens Country Club as the other place in town Jennings Mill Country Club. I'll play these amount and Uga course as well I haven't been able to play out there. They've been shut down for for a number of months now during the shutdown over the last few months, Stewart cink has organized a good many games. At, SUGARLOAF, And then Ben Kennedy. The owner of Georgia had some money games going on out there as well so out. Maybe play one of those a week. Something like that. Just. Try to stay somewhat sharp, somewhat sharp. I think is is a bit of an understatement. You just had a year I went I went on Korn Ferry tour in ten years. You haven't played in the Korn Ferry tour in ten years I. WanNa know you know we're going to get to kind of all the other things you've had going on in your life here in recent years. But what is it like for a? You know a seasoned veteran on the PGA tour to drop down a level to play Korn ferry events. What is how? How do you? You know what's really different about that? And how do you approach that you know compared to a PG tour event as far as approach? I wouldn't say I appreciate differently, but it definitely felt different, you know. Playing colonial the week before. Even, though there's no fans out there still TV, production crews, they still had ropes up. For some reason I'm not really sure why, but and it's still just kind of feels like a a PGA tour event a lot going on with Korn. Ferry tour event. There's obviously no spectators. There's no TV crews any of that kind of stuff, so it definitely felt different affects played a few. Few miniature events this year, so I wouldn't say I've felt quite like that, but definitely different, not a whole lot going on a one of the funnier things that happened during the week. You know we're coming down the stretch on Saturday last round, trying to to win the golf tournament and known. We're in pretty good shape, but there's no leaderboards out there at all so. I've always heard. People complain that the PJ to are apt update as fast as they would like for it to. And I got to experience a little bit of that firsthand hand in the eighteenth fairway with my phone out. Trying to get the thing to refresh that I would know if I needed to make par. Birdie to win. so we were just kind of laughing like at a Michael and Irish kind of laughing about that. Trying to you know is a shows you. How different things are right that we've? Got Our, phones out trying to look at scores, and and figure out what you need to make on the on the last hole of a tournament But competition. Obviously guys are shooting nothing out there and and everybody you play with flies at three hundred and. The future of the you know. You got a lot of a lot of guys out there that. Are you know mid early twenties and I was the the old man out there for sure well, it's funny you. You didn't really help my case that I've tried to make over the years, which is if you took a top PGA tour player if they played a season on? On the Korn Ferry tour and I think I S jt. This I can't remember if it was on the potter, not but okay. If you played a season down there like what would you? How many times would you expect to win and his aunt? He was quick to say like not not as much as you would think you'd just. You don't necessarily just drop down and. And be able to dominate there especially, just because of the way those golf courses play compared to the PGA tour. They're not as good as separating out. The field is as PJ. Courses are so in particular this course you shoot twenty six under par. What how are you able to separate out yourself out and you only one by one? But how are you able to be? Be The low man. What are the? What's the difference maker? I guess on a golf course like that where it's just a pure race track, and it's just a birdie-fest. How does that change anything in like in the competitive landscape of the event? I think the difference for me. This past week was really just avoiding mistakes. You Know Me. I Made Double Bogey on number ten. In the last round, but that was other than that I had no bogeys the whole rest of the week. so everybody's GonNa GonNa make some birdies and get a role, and but I was able to. To really maintain momentum almost the entire week. you know whatever I did, get in a situation where needed to get up now for par I did it. You know few times out, have a ten footer for par, and I kept making them. That was the the difference for sure. I think this past week that I was able to you know, keep up with everybody as far as making birdies, and then for the majority of the week was able to eliminate mistakes and not ever lose of that. That momentum. Well, you re kind of ruining a good story line that was go on which was that you were first alternate for RBC, and that you chose to go play the Korn ferry instead went and one, but can can you. Can you explain kind of how that wasn't necessarily the case? Yeah, that was not the case. I don't really know what I would have done. If I had actually been the first alternate where I would have gone because you didn't go up to our BC right. Now I did not so art the the. Field size was supposed to be a hundred and forty four players, but there were more more exempt players than that, so they play beyond the field size. They did the same thing in La earlier this year I. Think around the start of the term maybe one hundred and fifty one hundred fifty one guy, so in order for an alternate to get in, even though it was for I alternate in order for an alternate to get in the field size would have to go down below one hundred and forty four so. Effectively, I was seventh or eighth alternate or something like that. so there was no real real decision to make like I said if if I had been actually I often. I'm really not sure what I would have done. Yeah, so, what does this win? I swear don't mean this as as as directly as I'M GONNA ask. What does this do for you? Because it? Of course, it's great to go out there and win Korn ferry event, but you're not gonNA compete on the Korn Ferry tour, and it doesn't really do a lot for you. On the PGA tour terms of status I understand that, right. I hope that's a fair question I'm just wondering what your what your big takeaway is from it. Yeah, that's a fair question. in the short term my hope is that it gives me a little boost confidence in the long-term, my situation about tour status right now I have ten more starts on my medical extension which should carry me through roughly to the end of the calendar year. And then at that point, I will either have regained my full status on on the tour, or possibly could end up in the one twenty six fifth category, or possibly be worse case for me. It would be in the past champion category, so if that were the case, would probably play a pretty good bit on the Korn Ferry tour next year, and so because they have kind of a two year long combined season this year and next year to get PJ tour cards for the following year it'll pretty much just give me a good head start. With having a win. On that tour to be able to try to finish top twenty, five there and get back to the PGA tour that way. So, it makes it kind of makes my worst case scenario. A little bit better, okay? That makes sense that that that is good colored because I'm looking at it, I'm like man. This is great that he won, but I'll. How does he get Fedex Cup points for this and it really doesn't contribute much on the on the medical front, but. Well I WANNA to know. From what I've gathered? Pretty close as far as at least from a ball, striking perspective comparing how you hitting the ball right now. How you're playing right now with. I think you peaked sixteen in the world at one point, just compare it. You doesn't necessarily have to say as good. What's different are kind of compare your game now how you feel now compared to as good as you've ever felt I would say ball striking wise is as. As good or possibly better than it ever has been physically I feel very good through some some of the different workout stuff that I've done and some swings fi stuff. I'm actually hitting it further than I than I did previously in my career I gotta say you're you're you're instagram videos? Don't keep up with I. Don't keep up with Bryson's. I'm not so. That's all I. can say now now and they never will. That's for sure but. For me, somebody who's who's typically been someone that's been in the one twelve thirteen mile range. With their driver to now just a normal cruise control speed of around one sixteen. And the ability to swing one twenty. That's a big difference for me it. Kind of tips me from from below average to to keeping up with everybody. At say my putting his been very inconsistent over the last few years. a lot of. That's probably just confidence. short game has has been good especially last last two weeks. My my short game was. Hoping to. Be Able to to continue that trend and then last week I putted really great I found a little something was able to get into a groove just trying to. Honestly, trying to be a little bit less perfect I think I got a little bit to. In and trying to I was working all the right things and and working on. Working on my stroke, and and really working hard on my green reading, and all that kind of stuff, which is all great stuff in practice, but I'll probably bringing it. To Competitive Golf a little bit too much, and trying to be too perfect when I was putting in as opposed to just having a be a little bit more of a reaction and feel base thing so I was able to to do a better job with that last week and and thankfully everything came together, but More than that I would say really just from from my highest last year, and then having another break this year it's been. It's been difficult at times mentally to just be out there and have had the same amount of self belief that I had. When I was. Playing really well, and in the top fifty in the world so hopefully last week will be step in the right direction as far as that's concerned and will be able to contain you to build some momentum going forward.

Use, Promo Code Twenty. Let's get back to Chris Kirk. Yeah you touched on a lot there as far as you know, the things that I think would lead up to what you announced on May. Seventh Twenty Nineteen, which is when you announce that you're taking a leave of absence from the PGA tour deal with depression and alcoholism and I kinda WanNa get into the timeline of things here and I think I've read all there is to read, and I know that there's a lot to. Address in the segment, but you seem very open and honest about everything which I really do think that so much good can come from that, and just from the interviews of of watch from you, too. It seems like you get a lot of energy from that but I want to start at that point when you announced that you are. Going to be stepping away from Golf, you've taken the proper steps that seems to address things since then, but what was that like at that moment to announce that to the golf world? What was. Did you have any fear about taking that step? At the time that you know a lot had led up to that, and so that that was what felt like a a real last resort for me. an act of desperation to try to. To somehow salvage my life. Really you know I'd. I'd I tried to stop drinking November two thousand eighteen. That was when I. Kind of talked to some close friends family, my support group on on the tour and told them that you know this is something that I'm struggling with and I'm I'm GonNa. Stop Out! Appreciate any you know support. It didn't well kind of battled it for six months or so multiple relapses and was just miserable. You Know My. That I, I definitely struggle more with with anxiety than than depression can can lead to that, but I think my my anxiety kind of in building for for a few years and I started drinking more and more as a as a way to combat that. And then once I took the the alcohol, which was Kinda my medicine away. My anxieties got worse and worse and so I, just wasn't doing well. I was trying to to control and uncontrollable situation, and was thinking on the lines of. I can do this. I can do this and then after after. That there were two methods including the last time I drank. April April Twenty Eighth Side Account April twenty ninth is my sobriety date. Just a few. Real wakeup calls to like okay now. Nali are you not completely in control of this? You have zero control over this. And so stopping playing golf I kind of had to get to the point where I needed to get away from this because if I don't do something about this now if I don't figure this out then. I'M GONNA. Lose everything anyway. So, what is the matter you know? I didn't. I didn't know what was going to be. The result is as far as from tour status standpoint and I didn't care you. Know I I called. I called tour and said Hey. You know this is this is what I'm doing. I understand this is probably not gonna be covered under any type of of medical extension, and that's fine, you know if I decide to play golf again, then I'll I'll address at then, but for right now I'm going to just get away from it for an unknown period of time. And they were, they were very supportive. right away and they didn't tell me anything right away, but. Andy Passer. Roster Lan Jay Monahan. They were extremely supportive of me and We're really happy for me that I was you know doing the right thing and taking some some steps to try to get back To a better place in my life and J. J. was great. He called me to check on. Every now and then throughout the whole process Andy Pazder as well. I definitely felt a lot of a lot of love and support from those guys. I was able to. To find the right people here in Athens people that are that are in a similar situation to me and. And, really kind of get some answers as far as what was happening to me, and and why was happening and find the the right path for me to go down? You touch on a couple of things here and I I guess I'm Ali. This up to you as to where you. You think this story starts. Hearing you kind of explain what you mean by anxieties are what your anxieties were, and how that contributed to alcohol. Along those same lines I just want to kind kinda understand what your relationship was like with alcohol. Maybe maybe around the time that you know you really start to feel this this uptick in anxiety, and how those two work together and again that's up to you kind of as to where that. Where starts which which one leads to what well? I mean first of all I had always been someone who really liked to drink. and you like to drink socially in and was offer a party whenever. But I think that it's it changed when when my anxiety Kinda got worse, so though the way I look at it is I would Started getting. Bad I would take a take a very rational thought something that I would be. Worried about you know worried about the that I played bad one day or or worried about whatever it doesn't matter something you know. We all worry about stuff. It's very very natural. So I would take that thought, and then I would that would change to something else, and then that would change something else in that would change. Something else would be sort of A. Snowball effect in and within a matter of few hours I would get to the point where I was like I. I've got to sell my house. I I need to quit and find another job I've got A. Do you know I? I'm not going to be able to afford to repair electric bill next month, and all these all these things that when you know when I look at it now and if you, it looked at it from the outside. Then you would say that makes no sense like it's completely irrational, but. At the time it was, it was very very real just as real as the I thought was. So as that as that kind of continue to happen I. Just was basically searching for a way to shut my brain off and stop all that. And, so that was that was what I did you know and I and I remember it very well just liked to be able to. Drink to the point where I could just sit there and. Stare at the wall if I wanted to and not think about anything. And so. It was effective effective medicine for a while, but then eventually stops working and. It can can make it even worse and so. That kind of touches on where when I did stop drinking the first time I tried to the. You know a lot of that. A lot of the anxiety. Anxiety was able to Kinda. Flow out without anything. Just slow it down. And so, what point are you I? Guess as April Twenty Ninth Again Twenty nineteen. When the day you stop drinking sobriety date is this when you finally I guess take the step, or or what triggers you to understand that you need to actually address the anxiety, and then the alcohol kind of is a you know a contributing factor down the road, but if I'm addressing the. Much better chance at addressing the alcohol issue. I didn't see it that clearly at at that time I just. Basically knew that. Something is very wrong and I've got to do something about it. If I don't want to completely crash, burn here so through talking with. Doctors Psychiatrists. Therapists getting involved with a support group here, kind of a combination of everything I was able to. Really gain some mental clarity especially after you know it. Takes a while when you stop doing something like that. Your body kind gets used to. I was just kind of. Felt strange and not good for a while for weeks and then. After I was. Kinda my body normalized a little bit than I was able to. Move through the various avenues of of help that I was getting. was able to just get a lot better picture of of what was really going on and kind of learn. About just how how powerless I was and what I needed to do to. Not Necessarily regain. Power because that doesn't happen but. To make the shifts from all this fear, anxiety and worry about. The future about what's going to happen next to shift that to? Fully embracing the complete uncertainty of of life, something that I was deathly afraid of. To now where I see it completely from the other side of the of the Mir. Now I think you know how how awesome is that? That I don't have a clue what's going to happen next. You know, but. As long as I. As I do things the right way is always I. Treat people fairly. His I make sure that I'm a good husband and a father. And I. I stay in my in my program and stay connected with the people that I care about. It doesn't matter what happens next. It's all good, you know I. AM ready for for whatever and and I'm excited about that. Life is is a total mystery main. It'd be boring if we knew already knew it was gonNA. Happen well any chance I get to make this point I do, and I'm sure some people roll their eyes at it. Because when I say that tore, life isn't necessarily always glitz and Glamour, where you know, you've done quite well with career earnings, and you could play golf for a living is kind of where the buck stops with a lot of golf, fans or they don't WanNa. See it any other way than that. That but you're on the road ton your way from your family and your case way I understand that they you know once you had kids. They weren't necessarily traveling with you very often. You're in hotel rooms alone. You're in locations for a long period of time. It's not like an NBA team flying as a team, you know from city to city you kind of are in these spots for a long time by yourself, so did that environment that you're in weakened weak out that I. mean how much did that really contribute or double down on some of the issues you're having? I'd absolutely did yeah, so I've kind of changed the way that I. Said I. do things that traveled now, but yeah. The time away from my family definitely wore on me and. Just getting to the point, where maybe even before you know 'cause? There's no like clear definite point where you go from a from a social drinker to an alcoholic, it doesn't happen overnight. So as I was. Trending in that direction, my physical fitness became worse and worse my. Mental clarity judgment became worse so Obviously, my golf game was not keeping up with where where it was so the combination of the time away from from my family, which I hated and then. I could feel myself slowly declining. And just the the pressure of of trying to. Combat that and still be competitive in be. One of the best players in the world. And then. You count on top of that. You know when you not playing as well as as used to and. Y- I'll say this this much because I completely understand the golf fans, the say you know our. Our life is gravy. We make millions of dollars. We travel playoffs golf courses, and that's all true. But when you're out there, and you're getting your brains beaten every week. I mean no matter what level you're at failure sucks. It's not fun. I mean! you go out on on the PGA tour. You missed a bunch of customer. It sucks. I'm sorry. People may may or may not want to hear that, but it's the truth, and so it was a combination of all those things for me for sure. A. Lot of people roll their eyes whenever I try to compare the pro game to to the to the mid am life, but I has helped me understand so many more things about the day in day out stuff that you guys go through, and I can say that even two day tournaments where I'm staying overnight. If you play bad in round one, you immediately just want to be transported home like you don't want to draw you don't. Don't want you just like I. Just WanNa be on my couch right now. I can't believe have to support. Yeah, I just want to be done with this and it a horrible feeling, and I'm playing for nothing, not my livelihood. It's hard to explain kind of where you're coming from on that, but I do think I understand it to one. Maybe one percent of what you guys go through. Yeah, sometimes it can happen around the turn on. Tell teleport. Get Out of here. Well so how how did you? How did this like a your play? I mean. Were you ever to the point where you're drinking before? Or. The was you know we dealing with hangovers for morning tee times. How did it tangibly affect the way you were playing professionally? Hangover sometimes It's strange out. I'm not sure why says but I've never really been much one to drink while playing off, not even at home socially had just always saw the this is. This is my job I shouldn't drink while I'm doing my job. I'm thankful that I that. I thought that 'cause. You know who knows what could have gotten, too, but Yeah I mean I would say yeah I'd played hungover sometimes than it typically would have been in that case where you're talking about where you play bad on Thursday, and you're just going through the motions on Friday to Mr Cotton, get out of town. But not probably not as as often as you would think it was always like A. Balancing Act for me trying to. Figure out okay. How much can I? Can I drink tonight where I won't feel terrible tomorrow, but then also like. A new in this probably should have been more of a warning sign than it was. But if I ever did have the occasional off night, where I didn't have anything to drink, felt I felt where we are the next day from that. It was This juggling acts. That was just it was exhausting trying to. Balance All that and then all the other. Stuff That I, had going on of the anxiety and all that that kind of thing it was. Yeah, it was it was exhausting. INCAS the best word for it. And I'm I'm just very hesitant to ask questions about. Mainly because I think about four years ago or so. We had David Ferte on the PODCAST. It was supposed to be a thirty minute interview. It got chopped down fifteen minutes and I'm I'm rushing through a question and I honestly think about this almost daily asking this way I said you know you've been through some things. In the past, those troubles are behind you and I'm trying to get to a question and he just kind. Kind of stops me and says like no. That's not how it works like every day. Every everyday is a struggle, and I just felt so horrible about that afterwards, and and so like just that I didn't understand what I was talking about, but as I say that acceptance is a word that I, hear so often when it comes to alcoholism, and I hear you speak on it, and it sounds like acceptance and giving up the. Kind of understanding that you're not in control. Is that I guess? When did you start to learn that lesson? How did you learn that lesson and I WANNA? Know what also you're doing. You know how often you're going to meetings or what you're doing. Treat it on a day to day basis. Yeah, I mean the program of recovery that I've chosen to to take. taught me. A lot about. About all that had I i. don't necessarily see it as a as a daily struggle, it is a daily thing and you know I definitely stay very well connected with my my support group in various different ways but yeah, it's it is definitely something that. You don't complete the the twelve steps, and then say okay. That was great. I just going to go on with my life. Now but definitely doesn't work that way. It's one of those things you just have to. You have to keep. In mind and I have to remind myself constantly is that there's a? Very clear reason why I'm doing so much better than I was two years ago. You know so you can't just. It's not. It's not like you. If you WANNA compare to gough, you can't practice for a year, so go. She's sixty five and then be like. Okay, that's it I'm GONNA shoot sixty five every day from now on. You know it doesn't doesn't work that way you gotta you gotTa. Keep practicing and and keep working at it, but. I don't see it as a as a daily struggle and. To the point where I. AM certainly not not ashamed of it and. To the point where I would say I don't even. I don't even regret. Any of it because look at all the. The blessings that I've been given over the past year and look at how. Much happier I am and mental clarity. I have an how. Genuine and strong the. That I have. Are With the people that I love. I'm in a better place now than. Than, maybe any other time in my adult life, so it sounds crazy, but it's almost it's almost a a gift to be honest and I mean I've learned so much about myself and I'm able to see things for. For what they are I think when you hear that here, describe it that way. That's that's Kinda gives you a glimpse into why I'm so comfortable talking about it and why I'm willing to be up in about it. And You this is going to be. In maybe a two part question at the end of this, but one thing just working fulltime and golf for three years now. I see just how prevalent alcohol is in general and I'm not even talking about drinking on the golf. Course I mean it's just I can safely say the night. The number of nights I drink per week has gone up just as a function of being around golf. For for what you know, whatever the reason that would be, so did you I guess did? Did you hear from anyone in the game of golf? Maybe that you know that reached out to you can talking about some of the issues they may battle alcohol and with your New Perspective on it. Are you able to maybe spot issues that other people out there either on tour or caddies or agents or anyone? That's out there? Do you feel like you kind of of a new perspective? That might be able to help someone on that before. They even realize they need help. I I've had a number of people. Reach out to me and it's you know it's an honor and a privilege to be able to land any kind of words of encouragement, or any advice or or anything like that that I can you know I'm I'm here to to help any other people in any way that I can. but I I wouldn't say I really go go looking for it or I'm not GonNa, you know. People in in my situation, if someone has an issue in you just go. Go tell them about it then they're gonNA. Tell you to take a hike. Freddie quick. You know I was. I was definitely that way. You don't really until you have something. Slap in the face. You're the last person to know kind of that. You're an alcoholic, sometimes, because you've built up this this whole system of lying to yourself and denial and justifying crazy things and In your head at all makes sense, I'm never going to put anything on anybody. Obviously, if somebody comes to me, and and once advisor wants help and I'm there no matter what? but I'm not gonNA ever try to. Try to tell anybody else what they need to do unless they ask. Yeah to be clear. I didn't I didn't necessarily mean that? You would go up to people, but I would just wondering if you know if if it's easier something easier to spot I guess or something that you would be able to recognize much faster now that you've. You've gone through it. Yeah, maybe so, but I mean a lot of people if they're if they're like me, I mean I i. don't I mean I? Think that my my wife had had an idea of what was going on, but I even was able to hide a lot of things. Things from her I was very careful about. Who saw what I was doing? When and all that kind of thing, it was all very calculated. Thing for me because I didn't want you know something that was not obviously not proud of and and wanted to. To keep hitting the the best. I could so yeah, you never know, but it's I'm just happy to to be a resource for for anybody that that has questions or wants any advice on anything in that realm, well I think that's successfully addresses. The the this issue is promised. We can have some more fun here on the on the back half of this, but this might not be the best transition to more fun, but it does have a happy ending I promise, but I was walking out of the memorial tournament in I think it's two thousand eighteen. It's a Friday. And I stumbled upon your group on the ninth. and. I knew I knew he goes. Out there, I thought I mean. Let you tell. The story all right all right The whole thing that it that kind of blew up on social media. I thought it was hilarious. The the backstory is Friday afternoon finishing on number nine Muirfield village memorial tournament. And I'm I'm just kind of scraping along trying to trying to make the cut? I hit a really nice shot, and their to bouts, eight feet, or so and May Birdie on number eight to get on the cut line which I don't remember what it was, but that's relevant. I get to. Number Nine par-four pretty straight straight away tee shot, and then it's like a three three would and then a wedge or nine hundred and something like that. I like to add I. Don't like to through adoptees so i. kind of hit my three on the ground to kick up a little bit A. Little bit of grass and I give myself a good lie Sira remember this really clearly the grass so tight like hit it and I couldn't get up very high, and so for the ball and their. You know what? Hit It, so it's not sitting that good. And I call top. It. I mean it goes. It went. It went pretty far for a top. I think is a turf was nice and firm. I got a lot of spring. Off The off the e box so went like. Fifty fifty yards, so stat tracker headed seventy six. If I remember right and you. On twitter and said it. There's no way went that far now. I mean like I said it went far for a top of fifty yards. That's about as far as you could possibly top it and to be clear. We're not talking about a thin we. Top. It was a top. Yeah, hit the top of the ball, and it went straight into the ground popped up from there Called top. And so then I go up there, and the rough was rough is a pretty thick. Fifty yards off the tee box not hadn't been a whole lot of visitors to the rough there and side shop to five Aaron up there. Hit, a pitching wedge to about twelve feet, made it for par to make the cat. On the number, yeah, and so then the you know laying up, guys go with social media and so yeah, I said. I said I definitely the under on seventy six yards, and also I think to those somewhere around my. Fourth or so career top. In PGA, tour competition always with three hundred. A three I I haven't had one since then. I'm probably about do. I have. Yeah I've tie remember, and that unfortunately wasn't even the first one I've done on on on tee box topped on a number See One two three four at the Honda one year probably about eight years ago. And a few other ones be always with three would. That's that's the one for me. I'M NOT GONNA. Top IT with any other clubs but three. Would you never know I? Remember standing on that tee box and I was like I think they can. They can hear my heart beating. My heart started racing when I saw that I was just like. How is this possible I was just kind of getting into covering Gulf fulltime and I? It just blew my mind. I'm like if this guy's topping it. How do I have any chance to ever be good at this game? But then you made par. I was like okay it. That's the difference right there mean. I'm you know I'M GONNA and Crawling in a whole after top of that one, but I do that sort I'm glad we could finally get that one out there. I. Had I had my experience of the previous tops to draw. Say persevered, and just keep going you kind of undersold it, too, because you kind of blocked your punch out, and it was in the right, the first cut of the right ruffin yet a cut it around the trees to get it on the green, and then you made the par-putt So this is this is a story. I'd source from from a mutual friend of ours that I hope I'm allowed to ask about and you can share, but You had a great year and twenty fourteen and I believe you were talked about being there for the Ryder Cup. Potentially you were played a practice round at the British Open with with Tom Watson in twenty fourteen and I'm wondering what that was like and kind of what? What the conversation was like between you two on potentially being a part of that team. I guess I can tell the story long. I've told the astronauts told the story to to some friends and stuff, but never in public. Tom Asked me to play a practice round with him at the at the British open and I kind of thought that it was just sort of a you know. Get to know each other a little bit better, but by halfway through the round I could kind of tell. It was somewhat of a tryout. I guess in his mind. And Plan me in Me and Tom are playing a a two man game against Matt Kuchar. And Justin Walters who I don't know if you know just walters, not now just a long time south. African Guy, very good guy, good player. I can't really remember why he was. The the fourth in our group may have been somewhat random, but irrelevance far as story goes. So. I just flown over from from John Deere the day before I'm still a little bit. Foggy from the trip and time change, and all that kind of stuff inside just. Out there playing getting, see the golf course and I think I. I made. Two or three bogeys in the rest pars on the front nine nobody's. And so Tom We're making the turn and Tom Starts. Like. Give me a pep. Talk like the very serious like you know. Come on, let's get. Let's get going here and. And out I'm never really won the to pep talks general but I just Kinda was like you know Tom. It's Tuesday man. You know like. I could tell that was not not the answer that He. Wanted and I did a I did play better on on the back nine, but. I think Tom Nine and I have a I have a ton of respect for Tom and don't have a bad relationship with him with him at all, but he's just a very is very different mentality than me I'm more laid back just kind of trying to take it as it comes and and Tom more of A. Go Getter. Type of mentality make it happen I. Remember later that week, so I think that's I think that's my best finish. In a major my career billions nineteenth so I was going to the I. T on. Sunday and Tom was finishing on Sunday and he walks by me. And can tell you know we're on like one of those little skybridge things that they build out there to go over the crowd. Song. He knows that I'm going to the I. T and he just looks at me like I've got three heads. Likey mean after my performance on Tuesday clearly thought there was. Like, where are you lost like you can't? You can't be going to tee off now. And, then obviously I didn't. I didn't get picked for the for the Ryder. Cup that year, and so, who knows if that that experience that week headed had anything to. Do with it or not, but it's It's water under the bridge. I'm not I'm not worried about it well that year to was I mean you finish up finished? You Win in the Bank in Boston and there was your second one of the year that ll leaps you into I and the fedexcup standings and you end up finishing second, but the picks. Picks for made so early that Horsham. Obviously, it went on that run finished second I I and he didn't make the team because it was too late. Do you think that things could have potentially changed if the if they've made picks after the tour championship which they end up adjusting it after that? Do you think you would have had any better chance? Yeah, I, mean they definitely change change? When they made the pigs because of that year, and they made the picks right after Boston. And I'd had a had a solid year in just one week, but I mean I understand that you know Tom. It's not gonNA. Not GonNa. Make pick based off of that that one week That it obviously if they make the picks after the tour championship Played played well finished fourth tour championship billy won the last two to fedexcup events, so yeah I think that if if the picks are made after the tour championship than certainly billy and most likely myself, would have been picked for that team. There's nothing that that any of us can can do about it now. Obviously, and not something obvious I would. I would love to have been a part of that team, but it's not something that I really had any any control over, so you know I was just. Happy that made, but let a cashless those few weeks. Well, these are words, not yours, but maybe it's a reflection of how well that team did that Some decisions were potentially made off of some text messages that were sent, and also a contributing factor been Tuesday practice round at the British Open. So that boatload of cash, she finished. You make three million dollars for finishing second, but you're after you after you launch yourself into first place. In, the Fedex and I asked him about this, too, because he was in the situation I think in two thousand eleven and he he admitted like there's just no way to avoid thinking about it, but how how different is pressure of playing for potentially ten million dollars compared to you know when you go. T it up in an event like you. It's more about you know the competition. The guys are really driven by. By the competition of a single event. How do you avoid the you know the care at the end of the rope? That is the ten million dollar prize when you're sitting at the top of the standings. Yeah I, think I think mentally. It was made easier for me. The fact that billy was playing so well in the tour championship, and that he was second going into it so once he kinda got out. To the lead it was it became very clear. Cut had to try to to beat him to win. You know if the guys that were young. He coming in the week he was second Roy was third. I don't really remember after that, but if those guys are laying an egg and not playing well, then you've got all sorts of different variables in scenarios that can that can play out, but in in that situation it was very very clear cut. This is another thing that I've that I've told some people and. Gives me a a much more clear. When 'cause it's easy, you know, say Sunday you're you've made the cut? You're not playing very well. You just Kinda. You can. Some guys can kind of pack it in or whatever and not really care. But that year I was number one going into the tour championship over. Billy Horseshoe will buy a half of a half of a point after the BMW the third playoff. event. And so obviously that half that half of a point in a reset, the point Sonam had by by two fifty. So that half of a point. Can represent any shot in any tournament that I made the cut in that tire season. So because of that half point in me going into into the tour. Championship is I I finished fourth in the Tour Championship? I, think rory maybe also finished tied tied for fourth or maybe type second I can't remember, but I ended up edging him out in finish, finished second and made three million dollars whereas. Finishing third and the fedexcup is two million dollars so. Also, if I had finished one shot worse at the tour championship, I would finish third on the Fedex Cup. Instead of second, so the way that you can look at that if I had shot one shot higher. In any of the tournaments that I played the entire season, it would have been a million dollar difference. Seems like you have thought about this that I have thought about this and I'm thankful that I ended up on the right on the right side of it, but yes one shot one shot difference in any tournament that I played in made the cut in the in the entire. Season would have been the difference in in a million dollars pretty crazy to think about that. Are you adding any of that? Upcoming down the stretch at the tour championship, or is it feel different and I know you've played in. You played walk-ups. You've played in Presidents Cups. You've played in majors, but that's what I'm trying to get at is like. Can you avoid? Money in that situation. Well obviously I didn't know that full scenario, but yeah I did know that it was looking like billy was was playing really well. He'd gotten off to a decently. On Sunday and I didn't know the exact breakdown of how all the fedexcup up stuff worked. But, yeah, it definitely was was in the back of my mind that everyone of these shots and every Birdie I can make and every park and save on I knew they were. Going to matter way more than just a normal normal event. Again, this is going back to my Our mutual friends source here, but he is telling a story about. You know when you won your first event. What was it called the Viking Viking classic that didn't have the classic Masters Invite attached to it, but when you got you one mcgladdery, you are exempt into Augusta and you guys. He tells a story and you guys were sitting around talking about how for the first time in your life ever? You could go and play Augusta national for. Anytime you really wanted to. What was that feeling like? That was you know growing up in Georgia being a golfer? I mean the masters, is it? You know it's everything and so. Yeah to be able to just call up the press shop and tell them you're common. I mean that's gets. That's incredible. I remember going over there at a decent amount. I wouldn't say I. I wouldn't say I wore out my welcome by any means, but was able to go over there. You know three or four times I think to. To go play golf, course and just Kinda. Get a feel for the place, a little bit better and try to be somewhat prepared for the. The shock of you know your first masters is a is a very different experience for sure. I'm supposed to get the story about how how you met your wife Yeah. My my wife and I met. On a blueberry farm in Mississippi. which is. Where everyone dreams being their wife, of course, I do that. Are you just hanging out at a blueberry farm and you meet her? I need to hear the details on that. So a good friend. Good friend of mine Klay Giles. We school together and also both went to Georgia. his girlfriend at the time was one of. My Life's really close friends still. So my friend clay, his family had a blueberry farm Mississippi, so we were all a bunch of us were all going down to new, Orleans for the sugar bowl. And so as kind of a good halfway point, so we met up there and spent the night, and you know wrote around four wheelers and two pistols outshot trees, and whatever just did a bunch of get old. redneck stuff and and hung out. It was a great time and that was. That was the first time I met her and. Yes I remember I was already graduated from Georgia and was about getting ready to start my rookie year on the then. Nationwide tours and to be. Web Dot Com tour Korn Ferry tour and yeah, it was a it was A. it was a group of people that I was pretty familiar with, but I remember being like. Who is she? You know why why? Why not seen her met her until right now you know It's a it was a pretty. It was pretty immediate attraction obviously in and we started dating, and and and the rest is history. Ten years of marriage and three kids later. Right well the rest of the stories they gave me or definitely off the record stories so that. The kids that I think ready for you. Other time rejoined the family, so Chris thanks so much for for taking the time and being so open about everything and really shine a light on things I know a lot of people ruin for you and are happy to see finding success and happiness again, so really appreciate the time. Thanks for having me happy do. Club. Right club today. That's. Better than most. About. That is better than. Most.

It's called happy hour for a reason get to buffalo wild wings now for three to five dollars all day deals. So what are you waiting for. Get here and get happy. Buffalo wild wings. Thanks all right. Here's stephania bell talking about the n._f._l. Rule regarding antonio brown's helmet and when they let him know that turns were given a year to grandfather into a new helmet. Tom brady aaron rodgers. They've done it. Everybody knew this was coming and the list is posted and every locker room. They've been working with equipment equipment managers the n._f._l. And n._f._l. P._a. so this is not a surprise. This did not just come out a couple of months and that's why this to me. Guys is so silly because i get it. Tom brady didn't like the helmet aaron. Rodgers didn't like the new helmet didn't want to do it. This was not dropped on them overnight. This was not the helmet was fine on a wednesday a. and then on thursday morning. Oh by the way you're not allowed us that a year his union which is a member which he pays into pays dues for said this helmet not good anymore so oh i get that he's upset i get that he'd rather have the old helmet than the new helmet but the fact that this is turned into a thing is so silly and soap quintessentially antonio. Wherever you ever heard goes in one ear and out the other doesn't stick in the middle nothing to stop it so some guys sit in these meetings in their their their bodies their their presences there but they're not paying attention to what's being said that could be a case antonio. Maybe he wasn't paying attention. Attention like tom brady in aaron rodgers and all the quarterbacks. Maybe he just wasn't when they were presenting it to the team. He was like checked out. That could be the case or maybe he still his for. Maybe he wasn't there that day. No i'm saying yeah or maybe he wasn't there that day so it could could be as such that it was sprung on him at the last minute because he just didn't know for whatever reasons he wasn't toe. Oh even if he was told he wasn't listening in or wasn't there the data they d._n._a. Everything he wasn't walking by paying attention to everything posted as did notes yeah because guys don't. I'm just being honest with you. Do don't be paying attention. No i get that look in. We all miss things once in a while. There's an announcement that's made that you miss and somebody says hey we don't have that. What are you talking about. I thought we had it yesterday but we don't have it anymore. It's gone. I get that but this is a year. I remember hearing the story about tom. Brady's helmet remember hearing the story about aaron rodgers something that they you didn't like tom. Brady went back and switched his he had an orig- he got a new one day like switch back to the with the little bit of the season that was left kind of went back and forth with helmets sizes and changing changing and doing all sorts of things last year i went to new york and we went over all the helmet stuff in our meeting our production meeting the referees and the n._f._l. P._a. They came and we talked about the different helmets and what was good what was bad you know and they had they had a chart that went from like i wanna say it was either greenery at a rate the green so it was like take it was either rare was bad as as it helmets went higher. They were bad in the lower. Ones were good. Some of them are gonna be out. Loud all those sorts of things. I got it because i was listening when you are accustomed to wearing things doing things a certain way. You don't want anyone to interfere with that. You're not trying to listen if you antonio you like. I mean what you mean my limit so you get all high strung and you know what my voice no. It's just yes. I can hear him doing that when somebody says hey i want my hand pittsburgh yeah and they send san antonio theory more why probably football i'm i'm done okay. There's a bunch of nonsense antonio. If you're jon gruden if you're derek carr if you're the rest of these teams that dude pick a different helmet let's go. Let's we need you. We just traded for. You're paying a lot of money your biggest threat on offense. He's not their helmet on but the reason he's not there isn't because of the i understand people are taking that and making it seem as though he's not there because of the hell he's not there because his feet is bare. I did it but he's also the one key that said. I'm not playing football anymore by talking. Okay put a pacifier your mouth and come on home the plan you're my home and i get it. We everybody knows you want the attention. You wanna be the guy i got it. I got all this to antonio brown things things before we've played a single real game to frostbite which signed up for and i get it. He talked abundance abundance quote. How would antonio brown suffered in france in a wasn't accident. It wasn't his fault. If you ignore the instructions then it may still still be an accident still your fault and maybe they read the instruction. That's what i'm saying so as an accident but still your fault. You didn't purposely try to get frostbitten feet and just happen but because you didn't improperly dry off or waiter right foot gear your negligence or lack of carefulness caused. This injury hurt the team so stills your fault with this the helmet it's just a bunch of you know chirping because he knows he's not going to win and no one's taking it very seriously a breeze it brings the conversation to the forefront in terms of whether or not these helmets provide a sort of safety people reported temperatures to reprint to be to be providing but other than that. It's just chatter avocado brown. I get it. I it's exactly that it is nothing but a conversation for guys like us. It's a conversation asian for guys that are on television but again. It's antonio brown decided to make this a conversation because if he was just upset about the helmet you know this new helmet sucks. I don't see as well well. I don't like it. I like my old one a lot. Better okay cool. He goes away but it's not coming in anymore difference like i don't like i'm being really honest about like. Have you had an opportunity keyshawn to compare the two helmets and can tell us what the significant differences between one and the other claiming it effects is vision. L z granderson i i. I wore number helmets throughout my n._f._l. Career has collegiate and high school career. Yes hurt hurt that but i'm not going to respond. <hes> that does work best yes. I don't need to elaborate and so some some helmets feel weird to head clear tight. Some come down some come down over the eyebrow. Some <hes> feel heavy is like a big black just so big old giant bowl on your hit. <hes> some of the face mask asked to go with the helmets or blocks your vision. It just depends on what helmets you're talking about and guys don't like to change like like you like to wear the entire my entire time i played i wore in air helmet which was made by bike at the time i warned that all the way since high school school not that same helmet but that brand of helmet which was heavy but i was fine with a lot of people wanted to wear right ills which were lighter but it was uncomfortable. There was no pad at the back of the nick where my bike helmet had pat. They came down slightly we to the back of my neck so feel comfortable in doing that. My net i had to have the same face masks the same helmet my career when they went to change me out and give me one chris carter jerry rice looking alien helmets emptying the crazy. They look cutting wanna put it out. I'm like oh no man. I didn't even you try it on. They try to take this. This nope nope not at all rogers doing fantasy draft in here and it's not fair. It's a slow drive awesome drafting. Do what does that mean. You told me we're going to break and now you still talking about a fantasy draft yeah. He's out of control in homes in a league. We've all two thousand one in kim home. Yeah it's fourteen a._f._c. They win last night. I thought that was burto. He's <hes> max is the t._v. Or youtube voice and dave is the radio divorc- draft choices fourteen teams three to seven keepers is really nerdy. I love it so we're doing a slowdown if it was my pick no this one that's right tweet. It really didn't get into rugrats. My kids watched it and you know when your kids are watching stuff inevitably going to catch an episode here. They're not that. I don't wanna on and get into road back. I had no choice. I think they were banned. Were they were good. They weren't super bad but they did bad stuff on that stuff lesson remember last year at this time didn't we <hes> we discover like <hes> something to our dear for nosy there was he sounded like the the one rugrats chuckie. We got audio very brave brain. Wasn't that was a bit. It was somebody was really. I think l z was really nasal. One better years where you go back to something we call a tibo borough done something and you go back to yeah. Yeah very rarely very rarely was better than well one time. It happened to me. You can't go home again right now. Same idea same idea jon gruden is trying to defend antonio brown and you could tell he's he's doing exactly what the other thirty one coaches in the league would would've done defending his guy offering up in a explanation as to what's going on saying that i understand where he's coming from and i support him. It's at the very end of the sound where the real johnny boy comes out. Listen to this and the last ten seconds of the key and i hope so you know there's been a lot of reports out there. I can't say i agree with all of them. <hes> certainly but i support this guy and i think that's what needs to be said. I don't know what anybody's writing or what anybody thinks but this foot. The injury wasn't his fault. You know this was a total accident as it was really wasn't his fault and it's an serious injury. Some people are smart and at it but it's really not a laughing hyphen matter. The guys is is was hurt. He's innocent. He didn't do anything wrong and the helmet thing is a personal matter to him. You know he has a strong feeling about what he's worn on on his head and we're supporting them. We understand the leaks position as well so we're at a tough spot and we hope antonio is back here soon because he's exciting citing to be around. I'm excited. I got some place for them. I hope we can start calling. I hope we can start calling him. That's going to go to the front of these comments really soon and not be buried at the end of of the back end. They decided i he's great. He's working hard. It's an unfortunate accident. We support him. I'd like to run. Some place for him is going to turn into yeah. We'd like to run some place for him. We don't know what's going on. It's just a matter of time. Start your watch. I don't know if it's going to be a week or a month but the the last line is going to be the first line before too long every time. I hear him talk though it makes me mad. 'cause i know what he's doing like. Are you know what i'm saying. I got no john's doing like it's like listening to him. Charlie explain explain. What's he doing well. He's he's getting to the point. Which was i got the place that i like to run and if his ass was here they're not the run right. These plays so message to you is whatever you do and get your feet together. She can get out on the field so i could brunson plays a two may or may not get you the football depending on how feel that day. That's that's what he's saying. I mean he he truly saying but he also says he. He's green some stuff in the in the media but he doesn't know who's writing and where it's coming from. It's like come on man we get it. We understand it. At the end of the day. The antonio only o'brien experiment can go great. It could be good if antonio goes in there and he writes it up. Go good if he doesn't for whatever reason just you know just become a shell of himself to some degree the end he's gonna get the bulk of the blame for his feet beat to if he would have just put his head on straight not worried about the hillman got in your own time all of those things by the middle of the season's second third game of the year then even even miller season by the second third game of the year if antonio and have three or four hundred yards in those couple first touchdowns touchdowns in the raiders off to a five hundred type start you'll start to see but this isn't breaking news in terms of who jon gruden is. It wasn't breaking news on version the try to have her back. I'm sorry man as i signed on three one two three break. We all know who and what jon gruden is and i'm assuming that includes a b. so he agreed to do do this. He agreed to deal with this just like jon gruden. Everyone had an idea i do. I've never met the idea you only know what he is because i'm talking to you every day and he that's certainly drove it home key but i understood because watching jon gruden called football games watching jon gruden interact through n._f._l. Films and things it just he strikes me and has struck me as a really disingenuous guy but you also went to class at u._c. Santa barbara sure you went into class new into central michigan man. I'm not saying anybody can go to school. I'm just saying he was paying classroom and listen. Different class has been paying attention to jon. Gruden is since he's been in the n._f._l. He seen him on monday night football. He thinks he's cool but he really hasn't broken down and dissecting him to the point where me and you some other people. That's a little more for catcher before lee right would recognize is that's not ask round. Pick up a phone by he knows you. You call them and say hey. What's the real story and you would've told me. Real story can handle that see like other radio players when he first took the job that i knew they picked up the phone. We'll when we get into pass on that bus and about three weeks. That's what you're going to be into. That's what you we have forty and i think a._b. Could ask some players around in in certain people have different perspectives on who grew knees. I mean there's people that charles what's his swears by c. swears by go back to experience winning and tonio for a second can he just not you know sometimes. There's people pulled that react sometimes. There's people that can pick their spots and they don't say much when they do react you listen to them and then there's just some people that whether it's a big deal or no deal or anywhere anywhere between dealer no deal that's an show they have to react to something they have to be the center of attention they have to be the one that everybody's looking in talking about and it doesn't matter where it's good bad or anywhere in between just as long as you're talking about me this idea the helmet for instance dantonio brian has a foot injury feet injury and instead of just. You know what i'm just gonna. Let this one go no. I'd i'd really rather wear this helmet than that one but i'm not gonna make a big deal but he seems to be one of these people. That's incapable of just saying you know what i'm new here. Wanna get along. Get off to a good start. One have a good relationship with my teammates. My quarterback my head coach everybody. I'm just not for right now. When something big pops i'll do my thing. He's incapable edible of just not doing what i what it seems like to me. I mean yeah. I mean there's really not much more to that. He doesn't seem capable of making the of seeing the bigger picture. He's a small pitcher guy. He's a right now so the guy and right now him. Gruden are boozing buddies and i can't wait for football season to start because i'm really tired of talking about stuff. That has nothing to do with football. I really don't like their personalities. You know him being passed the wrestling so crazy. I'm so tired of meat being drug into his conversation. Oh oh that your drug name every time wide receiver oh man. I'm so tired of that. He did this to keyshawn. He's shutting. Like what the hell are you talking about like when people rights comes up on my feet on my phone all the time antonio tonio brown keyshawn johnson. This is a antonio brown dealt with keyshawn and this is i'm like what are you talking about like. This is not even close to being the same smell even close to being the same random shot joe asser well number one is. I did everything that the man asked me to do everything even if i even even if i gave him a fat lip. I did everything you asked me to do. He can never sit in a room and tell somebody did not do it. He asked me to do he could never say that. I wasn't isn't one hundred percent a hundred miles an hour every time i stepped on the field so when you start hearing and seeing stuff like this right i wish i could catch that writer and just grabbing the put him in a corner or was it just because you were vocal that you're outspoken. Is that why the comparison gets made. I think so but but because i am a somewhat of a lightning rod so to speak as i do i do. I write lightning rod type person. People people will take that in connected and run with it and try and make stories out of it. I'm so it drives me nuts that every time they talk about a receiver achiever my that has an issue. My name comes up. I'm here phones during that you used to have my damn ear and tell me about something when i'm letting people talk in a meeting you tell me to do one thing the next minute now break the no don't do running so tired doc. Id tired of c._n._n. Here damn nurse. You don't have to tell me see about every time a receiver seaver odeal b._j. Says something name is john did like no. I did not have less angry in the dak prescott said not thirty million reportedly details of the deal have not been reported but there is a story that the cowboys went to dak prescott and said hey we got thirty million a year for you and he said thanks but no thanks and they're still negotiating to your point though key it all depends on how it's structured. It's not the average annual value. It's how much do i actually get yeah yeah yeah because the top five quarterbacks i believe average over it between ninety eight plus million dollars of guaranteed money in their averages thirty plus yeah but they get ninety eight real dollars plus. We're that prescott deal averages zhizhi allegedly thirty million dollars where he may only be getting sixty million in that guaranteed or fifty million of a guaranteed or whatever the number certainly isn't a number. That's in line with those other guys else. We wouldn't even be having this conversation that if that's the case that's because the cowboys don't value him. I'm the same well. I've come around on this. You've changed my mind on this key that before it was a hey you know what dak prescott isn't as good as aaron rodgers therefore he shouldn't get as much as aaron rodgers. He's not as good as drew brees so he shouldn't but he's next and this is the price of doing business at that position in the n._f._l. When that position comes up you got to pay him whether or not he's as good as this guy or that. Guy is almost irrelevant. He's up. That's the price. If you want to keep your guy. That's what you gotta pay and that's every position ought to be honest with. It's not just for the quarterback why receivers my nephew just signed a huge deal with the new orleans saints a week or so ago. That number is what the number burris. Julio jones comes. He's going to jump him because that's what the number is in the next guy's gonna jump julio but your nephews in a conversation of ask. It's the best best is in that conversation yeah but it doesn't doesn't work like that. You don't have to be in the conversation of the best to be the highest pay. You don't have to be because that's what the market says. The market says that this do i need to do. What's the d. tackle. That just got all the money i want to say. Oh god kid from atlanta greedy great something to defensive tackle on-line of what i is the greatest jackson i think his name is if if you think about it he got paid. Now you got the beat. The big defensive tackle cajones in kansas city. He'd the best defensive tackle in the league but he says get paid like the best defensive tackle not quite aaron donald but he's getting ready to get old whole lot of money. They're getting ready to back truck up so it all just depends on the team the circumstances when you land you know when i when i did my contract ah i was cool you think i was the best receiver in the league no jerry rice worse but jerry rice to make what i make but then eventually i did not dealing guja me randy. Moss jump me so it just all depends on the situation of teams things that nature we explore the answer coming up next on the morning show lewis and the new so over the weekend the debut or the return. I should say of the rams pre and post game show right travis. Yes dean but there's audio evidence right out of the gate. It was was like the second segment of your show on saturday. The rams pre game show where it is evident you this your morning. Show buddies horry play the tape. You're coming up next. We're going to check in with our very very own george sodano. That's coming up on the twitter rams countdown to kickoff on e._s._p._n. L._a. You are laughing laughing because of that because i was returning every time i think they've every time i hear georgia's name. I'm waiting for hey to jump in there with chiba joins you on the we had something in the can so we played feature. Yeah we had a feature with george but just reading his name usually elicits that response so i was just caught a little flat footed when i didn't hear it. It's sitting in your head right and i started giggling cursing. What's going on in parts hard to explain poisoned hard to explain. Did you enjoy doing the rams pre post in half very much okay. What else is hard to explain. No thank you. I want to start with an n._f._l. Topic the jets kicker a man by the name of chandler canton danton azzaro retired earlier this week. He went in to the head coach's office and said he wasn't going to play more. He missed two in the game against against the giants two point after touchdowns but he went into retire over the weekend. Take it or shake it. He got one step before they got him. I would probably lisa shake you take you take take take take it yeah. Of course i mean you can't call that new missing field goals and p._a._t. And i can only imagine in practice probably was missing me realize then happy. I've seen guys retire on the field. I've seen it happen. Just walk off just done man. I can't in the middle of practice. I'm done you you going and i'm just over. It gets hard and you know it's just hard. Is it in tokyo brown. I'm done or is it. I'm really done never done. I i mean and we spoke to this before. They've told us seeing guys in the first practice out there we get to the second practice. That spot is missing a stretch on. It's like damn what it tells ego man l z game the playbook this afternoon said he done you see them later on down the line a couple of days what happened he. I bet it's just too much for me. That's it football and make a man so make you quit too. I all right next. One ezekiel elliott will get a larger contract then todd gurley. Take it or shake. Take it thank taking if girly got a dollar zeki at one twenty five so as larger that's all going to be. It's not going to be to the point where todd todd guy well. He's gotten and i'm getting fifteen million more. No it's not going to be like that. He's going to get a dollar to more whatever that number is. It will be slightly higher just because his deal was done two years ago. His deal is done now is he is important to the cowboys as girly as to the ramps. Yes absolutely absolute- number jesse's more more important yeah well again you guys in these numbers. I don't want to hear about the numbers. I think they went seventy two once. They got amari kuper. I've seen that premise struggle. I seen that prescott struggle without a receiver with zeke elliot running back so you know he he's important to the cowboys for him to win a chance. They won't win a championship though without him in the backfield. There's no question about it but they need all three of the triplets. The the junior triplets to be a part of what they doing that means the quarterback receiver running back much like troy emit and michael the fourth author missing a fourth that big personality coach jimmy johnson and johnson jason garrett. Jimmy johnson is in the n._f._l. Lamar jackson had zero rushing rushing attempts in baltimore's preceding that is a good sign for lamar jackson understanding the offense. Take it or shake what was passed <unk> statistic. I'll look them up. Zero runs john's zero shake. It got to be who you are man shake it. I've watched the i've been around league way too long and watch way too many any good quarterbacks mosquitoes certain skill sets try and fall into the narrative of what they should be based on what people like and you put them in a position gene to be a pocket passer in all of a sudden their careers get derail because they never could adapt to style in a wind up trying trying to go back to what they knew before in. It's always too late four of six for a touchdown jackson fifty nine yards golf also he played a series good led his team down. He scored a touchdown. It's good. They don't want to watch baltimore though maybe they don't want him to not run. They just want him to run less right. Is that that we're talking about one and not do whatever i wanna do whatever it is that he does to help us win. That's why i wanted to do but again. I'm not the receiver because if i was receiver her he'd better throw the damn ball instead of running major league baseball for our next one key receiver for never will clark for the giants yeah at first basement twenty-two number twenty two there you go numbers will clark is going to have his number twenty. Two retired by the san francisco giants will clark never won an m._v._p. For batting title was a six time all star. He should have his number. Take it shake it for real. I take it take you in the reason and the reason i take it is because certain organizations only have certain amount of historical players so you know the giants as i think as bon jovi monsoon mirror mel real guys solar okay yeah butler dusty baker. You got so okay so you got six guys on. The giants been around a long time a long time. They have six or seven guys so but that's their credit credit. I think that they have a threshold forgetting your number. You do need to be willie mays or willie mccovey or barry bonds or one marshall hall of fame good guy no batting here here. Here are the highlights six time all star which is not nothing that that's a good start. He led the league in our b._i. Once he led the league percentage once that's it those so that's far as being illegally we're done. It can't be real. The way that baseball's constructed. Everybody's got to have an all-star right and a lotta shaky. Take visit chris. Chris travis has the implementation square in front of him about all of the statistics the numbers and stuff like that the six all stars impress but when you start breaking down the individual batting an r._v. is just nothing. They're nice player but that's the end of that. What's it's really like cooking out there math so his number was twenty two since he left the giants twenty two players have worn the number twenty two the asymmetry they should to do this in two thousand seven hundred thirty bonds was twenty four twenty four. How many people were twenty four for the giant handful since he's left knows no the bond barry bonds as willie mays was twenty five twenty five on now. I got corrected myself vases twenty five forty five okay okay yeah. He's thirty one more quick one one more quick what major league baseball yesterday bob dylan oh largest upset set in major league baseball in fifteen years took place the orioles the worst team in the american league beat vir- l- astros and justin verlander plus plus eight fifty years ago. When does this makes you nervous for the world series because stuff like this happens. Take it or shake shake it. Oh check it champ. Key shake it. They're not good. Why would it make me nervous for world series because anybody in the world series is going to be a good team. It ain't going to be the damn baltimore tomorrow orioles but the point being weird stuff happens. We're the a on the wearable team beats the guy that's gonna win. The american league cy young award yeah but that ham is the series commissions like the n._c._a._a. Tournament something like that then that would make nervous but it's a serious and dan. He probably was tired and he was all right. Are you tired chris. Listen when you're tired. Did you have a good weekend. Were you able to perform the way you want. Maybe got a little tired you. You weren't able to run around the basis a couple of times. Don't let next week and do that. Okay get blue b. l. u. E. dot com from ten. Just five dollars shipping three and you too can chew it and do it. Who did he on really want to do. A morning. Show with the answer could startle you.

We're going to get travis in here. He's gonna fill in. We all knew what we were doing screaming at a dry run. I'm very very happy to be here. We're happy to have you where there's a quote here.

That was set your australian accent by the way that was. That was the whole quote. I can't believe that was the whole quote. Seriously pays six as you probably don't wanna talk about great quote. It's not a great quarterback. How's the appetizer question holding up rush us. Just now you ask me now. That's how i'm asking me right. Nope nope am. I winning.

We're heading down to DC. This summer. We will be back in the fall. Hoping that there sports. I am not optimistic I. stopped reading as You know, they're just words, but my God these numbers every day Yikes. Wear masks. It's not you're not week. If you wear a mask, wear a mask. It's just. Could you wear a mask? Could you not go to city council and yell at people because they're asking you? Where masks does that? visit the that difficult. Anyway, Stanford Steve's packing up. He's heading south before me. He's GonNa. Eat Meat. which that's fine because again, my friends like him more than they like me. I don't blame him. He's more likable than I am. But. It's just me this week and As you know we, we do the silly and the fun plenty we. Enjoy, that like everybody does but every now and then I I don't mind rolling up the sleeves and getting serious about something. And there's a story from last week about a guy named Chris, Kirk. Who Want a golf tournament now? He won a golf tournament on the Korn Ferry Tour and if you're like what the Hell's the Korn ferry tour well, it used to be the Hogan tour. Then it was the Nike tour, and it was a nationwide tour, and then it was web dot. com tour might have been something else I. Don't know if I'm remembering them all anyway now. It's the Korn Ferry tour. It's a a level below the PGA tour AAA if you will. And it is loaded with the young talented players who shoot nothing. And by nothing I, mean that means they shoot a lot of low scores. If you WANNA went out there, you gotta go low well. Brisk Kirk did and he won. So, so, what perhaps you say well. Brisker, the former top twenty player in the world on the world golf ranking a four time winner on the PGA tour who took a sabbatical? He took over a year way to battle alcoholism. Had Depression. and. He came back. This year. Missed, a bunch of cuts didn't get into harbour town last week down there at Hilton head, and so I decided to go play this Korn ferry tour of. Anyone. And I thought you know I am familiar with addiction I talked plenty about it through the years on radio, and here lost my father to alcoholism. I have a family member. WHO's in recovery so I am very familiar with it and when I see someone who is battling fighting the good fight winning that fight. And getting back to what he does professionally and achieving in the midst of all that well, that's something I want to celebrate, and so if you're not familiar with Chris Kirk. That's okay because I'm positive if you hear my voice right now whether it's. One degree away from you. Two degrees. Whatever if if you think of your fist, your fist is your family. Somebody in that fist, one of those fingers is dealing with some. Might be you. and. It takes courage to ask for help. And it takes support to get through things. And I just encourage you. If you're in the struggle to listen if you're not listened because it's a, it's a story, worth hearing regardless of your relationship and familiarity with the idea of addiction. Here's a conversation with Chris Kirk. I. Don't know for sure where we're GONNA. Go because I told. As we were trying to sit this stuff. Love this kind of personal. Apologize in advance for get super personal with a guy now, so I hope that's okay. That's perfectly fine. I'm an open book. You Win last week on the Korn Ferry. Tour and the way I would describe the Korn. Ferry tour is a bunch of guys in their twenty s mostly who hit the ball? Eight miles shoot a hundred under par. Her absolutely fearless. Is that a is that about the way you cut him? See the guys out there. That pretty accurate. For people that that are not really in the Gulf fraud. I usually make the comparison to AAA baseball. You know guys that are on the verge of of breaking out and really getting going with their tour careers via mostly. Both the early early mid twenties, guys, how's how's definitely dude out there last week? And you typically need to shoot a bunch under and you did to win. As, you're out there. I don't I. Don't look at the field, but I bet money. You're the guy that's got four. PGA Tour wins out there last week. And so you've got that frame of reference, but as you're coming back from what you're coming back from, and you've been away to work on you in the midst of all of that. Where's your mind? Put me on the golf course as you're trying to win a tournament you've got. You're trying to go to net like and you been away competitively like. Where's your brain? I think that once we got coming down the stretch in trying to count. See what I needed to do to win the golf tournament It was back to back to business mostly but I think that I. Think that I did a better job there, especially the last few holes. just because of the clarity that I kinda have in my mind now. Just much more. Aware and much more into. The moment now and we can. We can get into that more later as as it relates to. It all the different troubles that I've had my life, anxiety and alcoholism over the past few years, but I have so much of a better sense of that. You know now is all we have you know and that I think that reflects into my. Life every day every moment so I felt like i. was more aware of how feeling where my nerves, and how that might affect me aware of the situation and just really. Embracing that instead of you know where before I may have been really. Anxious and worried about the outcome I really was was enjoying being there and it was night. Right on how how much Chris is also. Or maybe not I shouldn't assume, but I'm curious. How much is if I don't win? If I miss this PUTT. I'm not married to the outcome like it's not defining me how much how much of letting go maybe that which I think so much on tour can be that. That's huge and I've. Decent amount about that lately had just how easy it is. for all tour players to fall into that. Trap, because you, you know you're. You're judged by the public and by the world based on a number at the end of the day. And nobody knows how you slept that the night before has if you have stomach bug. Nobody has any of that and they don't care and that's. That's fine. That's the world of professional sports. but it can become very easy to start judging yourself based on that number as well. And you're you're sort of self worth and your value as a person is. Is Completely. Irrelevant of what that number is, but it's very very hard to to see that especially, the longer you do, it I think. This, all of my experience over the last few years has given me an incredible. Perspective on that. Where like you said I'm I'm not married to that I'm not attached to that, I am. You know I'm Chris Kirk the. Been father all that that stuff, and yes, I happen to play golf for a living and I have to love playing and competing. But at the end of the day, I'm not gonNA judge myself based on whether I birdied. That lasts not. Is Sixteenth in the world golf ranking Plano Presidents Cup team, which for those who are listening that don't necessarily understand international competition that means your other twelve biggest invest. I should say players in the. United States side international competition as a big time thing. Win Four different events on the PGA tour. So you, you got to that place. I think people look at the tour and think mad at a lot of fun and I bet it probably is if if you're high of money, listen, it's all private plays in life's really really can ice cream, but there's so many people grinding, and it's so difficult I always. I was look at golf this way. there must be several thousand people capable of shooting sixty seven on a given day, and there's probably half of that could do it. For two divided in half again could do it for three and then divided in half again. It could do it for four days and that's that's how you Kinda can get to. Circle levels of tour life. But After you reach that point you went through a lot and I read an article that Helen Ross wrote. That speaks to being a New Orleans on April the twenty ninth of two thousand nineteen. If, you can take me to that day. You Open Your eyes on that day and we're. Are you in this world at that point? Yeah, sure. I'll go back a little bit before that to kind of work. We got up our that day happened. Say April April, twenty, nine, two thousand and nineteen is is my sobriety date but it was. Around. November are so of two thousand eighteen when I I. kind of admitted to myself and Maybe I'd admitted. Somewhat to myself before that but. When I got together with my. Friends close friends family Kinda my support group on tour and just said Hey. I'm having a problem with this I'm Gonna I'm, GONNA stop drinking. You know this is just something I. Want want you all to know because we spend a lot of time together that this has been an issue for me. and. I would appreciate your support going forward. That's that's November two, thousand, eighteen, or so and Over the next six months or so I. relapse, three or four Tonto I think and It was always. You know in between I'd had I think my anxiety is kind of what took me from a a social drinker to. Do having a real problem with it. And, so once I took that once I took that away. You might medicine if you will my diety was. At an all time high you know going from. And the way the way I would describe it as our our take A. Thought that would would worry me and we are everybody. Has You know where whatever if I didn't play well one day or Whatever it may be. Inside start with a with a very rational normal thought. And I would take that to some to somewhere else. And then I would take that somewhere else and take that somewhere else and take that somewhere else and by the end of it. you know I thought that. Cheese I. I need to sell my house and I need to quit, and I need to do something else. I I just can't. I'm not good at this anymore. I'm complete failure all this stuff and that that. End of the chain thought. was just as real as the first one to me. And and I couldn't really. I lost the ability to to differentiate what was realistic and what wasn't. And so without having my way of sort of numbing myself at the end of every day. Now those those thoughts are really just consuming me and so I would. I would make it three or four weeks. And then just kind of go off off the handle. And so after doing that. a few times I was just kind of struggling through it, and and not making a whole lot of progress. So then that. That night in new. Orleans happened and was. Obviously had some wakeup calls and realize that. I didn't have a whole lot of control over this, but being the type of person I am I definitely am A. Win at any situation. My instant reaction is I've got this, you know. Someone who's feel like? I've accomplished a lot and I feel like I've done it on on my own merits, and so any situation that I'm faced with. That's my immediate reaction. I got the second handle this. And so I'm in I'm in New Orleans substrata, really close friend of mine in are playing the Those are there and two man team events. Rain delay we finish on the second round on Saturday, and we missed the cut. Dom staying in town because I have a photo shoot for my clothing company task is based in New Orleans on Monday morning early. Saturday we get done and I'm like okay. All Right Chris. This is a this is red flag situation. You've got to be careful here. Really the on your on your game. Make sure you. We don't have any slip ups or anything. It's all good I just say I have dinner with a friend and and relax and and don't have anything to drink and. Sunday night In my Hotel Room I. Think I ordered Room Service, and it was just kind of taking easy like all right. Yeah. I've got to get up early tomorrow morning. Let's just lay low and and relax and so I I'm getting ready to go to bed at nine o'clock something because I've got to get up early the next day. Outage kind of anxious about having to get up early and I knew I'm not going to sleep very good so some like I said I go to the the many bar, which is probably in hindsight, probably don't stay in hotels many bars. But anyways I go and I'm like I'm just going to have one of these little things of of which he ain't got a bad as so help me sleep. And This it. To give people an idea of of where you get where you lose, you lose the power of choice. If you have it before I had that drink? If you hook me up to a lie, detector tests and you say Chris, are you GonNa only have this one drink and go to bed. Yes, I would pass allow detector tests. No problem you convince yourself that. Yes yes, I was sure I was sure of it. And flash forward to a few hours later I wake up and it's about three or three thirty in the morning, and the lights are still on my hotel room. I'm still fully dressed. Thankfully, I haven't gone anywhere. But the many bars empty. Twenty plus drinks later and I wake up and I. Don't I'm just like what what just happened, but. Another kind of sign of of where I was at at that time I. Turn off the lights I go sleep for a couple more hours I. Get up, take a shower. Go to the photo. Shoot felt fine. Nobody would've ever done any different. Which is obviously. Not Normal and so I go after after that you know that was like a all right you have. You know. You thought that you were somewhat in control this maybe but that was obviously the. One of many wake up calls, but one where it was like all right I truly. Did Not want to do that. My conscious mind anyways did not want to do that so I was like all right, and not only do I. Not Have Great Control over this I zero commute over this and. I? have. Got To stop. You've got this attitude, 'cause you don't got this. And so I got home, and and talk to my wife, and and was basically just like you know if i. If I'm going to have any chance of of getting better of salvaging my relationship with with her with my family with. Or you know, forget about my Gawker that's that doesn't matter, but I've just gotTA. Stop everything because if I can't. If I can't figure this out then, I can't have anything else. Nothing else is going to work. I'm not can't function. And so, that was that was the turning point for me, And I you know didn't play golf for. I didn't touch a club for about three and a half months and I've worked on myself. I found I found the people that I needed to find here. In Athens support, group. Both set program. All that and it's been. Really life changing combination of you know seeing the FEMA therapists and and support group stuff and all that you're surely. Folk in my eyes and and helped me see where. Where where I had gone wrong and what I needed to do to get back going in the right direction and really just. Help me. Understand what what this all was and take away a lot of the. The shame that I was feeling. Shame like is is an anxiety you have you. Is Personal, and if it's not my business in please, but I mean is it? Is it anxiety basis the idea that these numbers they go next year name whether it's world, ranking or score or on Sunday where you warned that leaderboard than the size of check like is much much Chris. Do you find the that was stemming from from focusing on that a lot of little what? I think it was a combination of a lot of things that that included Y- the. was. I. I hated the amount of time that I was spending away from my family. That really wore on me. I. Got to the point where I just didn't. Didn't really I didn't really like. Playing that much. In the in the head space that I was in I i. hated it whenever I got situation where I was nervous. It just became the pressure of trying to. Maintain the status as a player that I was it just all kind of became too much for me and it didn't. Didn't happen overnight. None of this happens overnight, but it just. All that exiled he kind of started to build. And it just you know eventually got where it was. It was too much and I wasn't. I wasn't handling it the right way I was just making it worse. I handled a lot of different ways now I mean I. Like I said I. I've had such one eighty shift in my been Taliban life in general that. You know the whole process of you know like I said not. Not defining myself by my career or or Viney? That kind of stuff. Is a huge help, and just I'm able to now that I'm that I'm sober and have have this program that I'm working on. I can see I can see what's real, and what's not real where I I completely lost that sense. So now if I, you know if I have a thought or whatever that that worries me. That's all it is, and it stops there. I don't have to I. Don't have to let it keep going in and building. Checks in place where I can. I can sort of cut it off before it goes onto different things and that's with. Sort of constant communication with with other people that are in my situation that I stay in touch with whether I'm at home or on the road. prayer and meditation, and you know a lot of things and I've my whole system of of traveling is different I. Don't stay alone anymore. there's just a lot. There's a lot of things that have gotten me into a much better place, and but then at the same time. I also know that okay, you can't. I can't let the thought. Come back that I've got this, you know. Am, I in a million times better place than I was years ago of course I am, but. You have to act stay diligent and I have to continue to work on program and. And stay on on all the things that I'm doing I'm doing so much better for reason. It didn't just happen I'M Short interrupt you would just with language of recovery and the idea of of working. You know there's a saying in recovery working program it works if you work and I have an aunt who's in in recovering more than thirty years and goes to meetings every day, and it's worked for her, and each as I understand it the it's it's different for each person, and there's an idea of serenity, power and understand things. You can't control things of that nature. How much crisper you was! Surrendering to the idea of being a better dad, your boys better husband to your wife and recognizing that you couldn't be that if you were kind of. A slave for lack of a better word to the the the bomber to the anxiety, and how how much were they the driving force for you? That was huge. You know I wasn't you know the. People in in recovery would classify me as someone who had a high bottom. You know everybody has their bottoms that. That they. Have to get to to to be desperate enough to WANNA. Come out of it and. Second the the thing is. To, you I'm thinking how grateful! I'd be that my rock bottom wasn't like I. Think we've all look I don not make making light of it, but I've woken up foggy in New Orleans man like we. Think we've all had some episodes in that. Tell where? You. And I've actually told a goofy story about waking up after a night with the minibar eight. All the cash US I didn't have enough money to pay for them because I was basically. I tried this is. Full of toilet paper in the people that the check the Minibar left post. It note that said Nice. Try I got caught from. Out of the mini Bar, but what I'm getting at at your, you seem to have like an epiphany. Without having to you know crash, Clar, or or hurt yourself really yeah without having to completely burn my life's ground Yeah and I think a lot of that goes back to you know my. My family, my parental structure, and with my brother, growing up my brothers, and all that was. was so great and so important to me I. Just I got to the point where I saw that limping away and I was not willing to let that happen. So yes, they are. You know obviously you everybody. You have to do this for you, but but yeah that was that was everything for me added. The I didn't care if I never got to play on the PGA tour again if I. Never got to do a lot of things again, but I was not willing to I was not willing to lose that. And, so that was the that was kind of the last straw for me as I as I saw that getting closer to being a reality I, it was like okay. This is this is dead. If you don't if you don't turn this around now, then who knows where your your bottom will be? Great picture that I was looking at just just surfing around of you. Walking with your boys in the caddy. Whites at Augusta that fun par three contest Wednesday your boys are. Now like eight and six and one of the eight thick. Thick than my youngest is almost three. Okay, and so they've had data around for the better part of a good chunk of a year. As as you're not doing that, you're not doing that thing you know. Define you in where you had this remarkable accomplishment and whatever else and now. You Know About Coaching Baseball. And what are you boys asked like. Could you get paid enough to do that to not have to go play. How do you weigh now Chris like nothing? It's selfish, but this is what their dad does. This is what I do. This is what I do this I. Play Golf like do you now? Devote yourself in a way to the craft? The can allow you to to do that and not have to surrender any of which you. Invested in being home, and being in the husband and Dad, you WANNA be. Yeah it's a obviously finding balance which is not easy, not easy to do even how with how much better I am now That's still a challenge. It's a challenge for every professional athlete to. Try to find that right balance and You know it's and obviously just being very transparent and open with with my wife and my kids be keeping that. Austin. Of Communication Open in my, you know my oldest son both my two oldest sons, especially the sun or Old Enough now where they can. They can understand it when I tell them say you know. Yeah, obviously, I want to spend as much time. With you guys, this is this is my job, not only my job, but this is what I really love to do. And so, it has to has to be both. For happy I I do. I love. I love going to play, you know I'm GonNa go play early tomorrow morning. With a few friends and I'm excited to go to go play. It's just GONNA be. Fun and The joy of playing golf has has come back for sure and the. The joy of competing as well It's something that I'd love to do for a long time and while I definitely lost sight of that. For a while now, but I have a little bit more of a a clear mind It is definitely back in the. You talked a little bit about the. You know kind of embracing the the uncertainty of of life and that's. That's definitely been a huge east for me. You know just trying to kind of. Live live life every day by the brand new pair you know. grammy, the courage, the accept the things I cannot change the. Or the. Accept Things I cannot change the courage to change the things I can, and and the wisdom to know the difference, and you know that's not always easy, but. I've gotten to the point where. Instead of being so anxious about what's going to happen, trying to control every every little thing I. Love the fact that we don't know what's going to happen I used to be what what worries me the most The fear of the future, and the fear of what was going to happen next the fear of losing my job that fear of all these things and. And now it's like you know I've no idea how. I'M GONNA play next week and it doesn't matter I have no idea what's going to happen. Next year I've no idea if I'll be on the PGA tour next year or not, but that's all right, you know. Whatever I think I think now mean I could go get a job at home depot and be selling some plants and lumber, and that'd be alright. You know it's I love the that I've gotten to that point where? It's a that's another Definitely a one eighty going from really fear anxiety of of what's going to happen to. I mean. How awesome is it that we have no clue what life is going to bring us? You're not married the result and you've you've let go a lot of a lot of that, and yet you do plan sport were there's a number next you name it at the end of last week a Sunday. You're low meds and I get the. You'd you'd be just as happy if he didn't win, did and the question. Our visits were never supposed to ask him about the at how did that? How did that feel in that moment to to win again? It was. Not I definitely felt very. Very, proud of the the journey that I've been on You know it was. It was exciting to. And I think it made it made it even better to to be back there in the fairway, knowing that I that I needed to Birdie the last hole. And being able to be calm, enough and be collected enough to. Produce and You know that's that is an amazing feeling and. I've been very fortunate. To be able to feel that a number of times, and it feel the other side of it, too but. You know it's. It's like nothing else. In Life To come through, and you feel really really nervous like that. I'm not saying it's better than a lot of things in life. There's just different, and it's It is an amazing feeling to. be, able to handle your nerves. And and to be able to come through, and you know you need to. What do you remember feeling standing over the shot? Thinking you talk about clarity like. Did you have it in that moment? I felt like I did We. Drew! I got goosebumps. If I had hair to be standing right now. That's so cool. You like that's just in that moment. Right with the moment that were everything could come crashing down in an instead of that. It's like absolute peace and call. I wouldn't I. Don't know that I would go quite so far as peace and calm, but. Say I will say clarity and it was different. It was different than than in years past because. I think some of that. You know whenever I've whenever I've done well in the past I definitely felt like A probably a false sense of about got this. Whereas you know this time and I had to get good buddy of mine that that I play golf with a lot plays. Many tours with caring for me last week. And I have a good teach shot on eighteen, and and I said I told him I said hey grab. Grab two extra waters. I drink because that's one one of my like US habits. I drink like a ton of water when I when I get nervous and so I'm like grab grab a couple extra waters. Always drank a ton when I'm nervous. That's something I never would have would have said out loud before. And he just kind of laughed so okay. He's like this is in. We're walking off devices like this is awesome, isn't it? I'm like yeah, this is this is cool. He's like this is why why do this while we play? You know and to have that conversation and then. You know getting up a hit pretty good second shot up just right of the green, so not a great line, the rough and needed to get the ball up and down to to win and. And just talking to him whereas Typically, I have never really relied on on caddies much, and we'll vote was kinda talking through the shop with my buddy. Just like we're. We're at home and like you know you think if I if I kind of turned down A. Pitching Wedge here in Atlanta right there that it should release Louis released to the whole, and he's like yeah. Absolutely, that's perfect and just being. Instead of just internalizing everything and putting it all on myself just. The whole thing it kind of parallels with with everything that I'm doing in my life right now. Just putting out there in the open and. And being being vulnerable, you know. Admitting that I walking off the eighteenth e-last say that I'm nervous you know just be. It's Okay And that that gives me such a sense of calm and peace is just it's okay for me to be vulnerable. No matter what the situation is, and that that definitely calmed me down and and was able to hit. Hit some good shots and. And thankfully hit a really nice. Get there and only had about A. Two and a half litter uphill right-center. That's a wet dreams right of their. Preferred preferred one and a half feet or six inches or so but. Yeah most of us are pretty good from two and a half feet, uphill right-center so Yeah, it was. It was incredible feeling and to tell your boys like. One when you leave to go to work like my kids, I and I got married late so I got little kids. Actually my kids are not basically the gauges of your kids. I go to work. They them, you know but I. Would I get to do? Mike, I don't have to go toward decades ago where? He gets to do this fun thing that's kind of how I sell them on it, but I don't get to tell him daddy. When Daddy! ONE FOR THREE LITTLE BOYS! What what's what's that represented them? They were you know? It's funny. Because I have in my my barn here at our place, I've got A. A room that's has you know synthetic terrible? Putting Green got a bunch of golf clubs in there and and trophies and soccer trophies from from college trophies from My years on the Korn Ferry tour before I got on the PGA tour Ph trophies all his stuff, and so they see all these these. Things, but they don't. You know it's been five years since I've won. Won a golf tournament of of any real notoriety, and so they they don't remember any of it. None of them. And so you know I can show them pictures and that kind of stuff when they were little me winning terms and everything, but they have no memory of of any of that at all. And so they for them to bring home, a trophy was was incredible. You know and even it's funny. I've played Earlier this spring I thought that I was going to get into the Bay Hill Tournament and then didn't and so. I was down there in Florida. and the weather was good, good down there and not great in Florida and in Georgia, and so I I found this little tournament play to the Florida Professional Golf tour in Dilan Florida today event. I went and played and shot fifteen hundred for two days and won the tournament. No trophy, but I got one of those big. Happy Gilmore checks twenty two hundred dollars, Elliott one and my kids thought that that was the cool thing that they had ever seen this gigantic check. Could I say? Sucks for those guys in Land Florida at some. Will four four-time to like if I looked over, and so he son of I. Live for twenty two hydrogen. This is tour swinger Sosa. Spin. I had I had make about that. And I was talking to some of the other guys and and had a few people that I knew were playing and talking to people running the tour and. And I was like. Do you think? Do you think people are mad that I'm here like? Do you think they hate that I'm here and. And the kind of answers that I got were like. some of them, yes. you know the guys that are that are really motivated and believe that they're gonNA. Make it and play the PGA tour. They're excited that you're here. but three quarters. The guys probably are saying exactly what you just said. I came to the realization that you know what these guys are going to have to. If they're gonNA. If this is really what they WANNA to do, they're going to have to play against me sometime. So might as well be here in the land. That's just gonNA. Stick is that's a fact like I was kidding I was kidding, but the truth. But it's just like I was saying before. There's a bunch of guys that can shoot a low number for a day, but if you WANNA, make it on tour. It's so damn hard I. Don't think people grasp how difficult it is, and how good the level is on the Korn ferry tour. Were you one last week, so you were there because get in at? At a harbour town Nazi, your your schedule moving forward. And I say that like after all these positive tests in Hartford was like Oh. My God please. Can we just keep playing? But assuming we go forward? You have a schedule mapped out for the next month year. What? I. Do I'm homeless week obviously, and then I'll be playing the rocket mortgage in Detroit next week and the workday event at Muirfield after that. And then I'll I'll take a week off following that, so my My starts that I have medical extension will carry me through pretty much the end of this calendar year. And then I'll I'll be able to kind of reassess where I'm at then you know hopefully I will played well enough to regain full full tour status but if not I'll play kind of a mix schedule of some dumb PGA, tour events, and and mostly Korn Ferry tour events next year, and and try to regain my my status that way, but I you know with that being my. My worst case scenario that's still still pretty good, and and just got even better last week with having a you know if I'm playing. Stuff here, my my win. Last week will count towards that ultimate money list so Yeah I'm just I'm not really worried about where I where I play, you know see. I've played some some many tour. Anti played another may tour event a few weeks ago on the swing thought tour Knoxville, and and it's just. Like you, said the the joy of of playing golf in competing in trying to beat the other guys. I mean that's that's. That's what I care about now. I don't care what the venue is. You know there's let me get out there and I want to have fun and and play and try to make some birdies. Right on and that's just the job part the most important thing is. Working that program and and people if they don't there familiar, I can't blame them for not getting it, but I mean the truly. The idea is all we have is this. And my grandma used to say today's gift, would you? Would you prepare to do with it? You know and. I. I lost my dad to this. You Know I lost my dad to alcohol and he couldn't ask for help. And I'm older now than he ever was in. That messes with me. You know it's so strange. It's so strange Chris, because I've a debt. You know and I worry about going to be around probably for stuff because I'm older. and. I'm just I'm trying my best in time and a half to be the best dad. I can be and try and leave him with Soviet like I don't mean more stuff. Leave him I'm just just give them. Lessons intimate that they can hang on to you saying and I just. As I. Hear you talk and I'm just. I'm just so thankful that yet that you had the strength to do the thing. That's the hardest and that's to ask for help in. And if there's any way to describe how you knew in your soul. At your heart your brain. That's what you had to do. Is that even explainable like how you knew you had to do that. Well The main feelings that I remember from that time. Was that it? It it felt like a last resort to me at the time. and. You know I see i. see it differently now, but. It. At the time it felt like and an act of desperation and a last resort, just trying not to completely. Destroy everything that I had. Worked so hard for for so many years So that's that's the main thoughts. That I have from that time, so it was. It kind of bothered me I when I when I first made my announcement that I was that I was taking leave, and we kind of went public with it. You know I got all these these messages of you. So courageous you so strong and I it. It kind of bothered me at the time was like this is not. This is not shrimp. This is a this is pure desperation here. And So now, being on the other other end of it, I mean I still don't i. don't feel like at the time it was. It was an act of strength or courage. But It is cool to me now to see how my my platform can affect other people. And that's you know if I'm being honest, that's that's still not. Not, why do it? That's not why I'm so. The open about it I'm open and honest about it because it feels good to be, and it helps me in my recovery to be an open book. You know spent a lot of time. A lot of time lying to. The people that are really cared about. Lying to myself more than anything you know was in constant denial of of all sorts of things. And you know that was. That was quite a burden, the to carry around everyday to be things to be ashamed of yourself to be lying to your to your wife about various things and. You know now that I've that I've kind of gotten this sort of sense of of clarity. I. Mean it feels it feels amazing just to. have nothing to hide, and so that's that's why I'm so. Do Open about it. Because why would I not be you know I've. I am who I am and I'm not I'm not ashamed of of any of this. I don't think the the fact that I'm an alcoholic doesn't make me a bad person I. Don't Judge Myself For it. If anything I'm thankful for it because look look where it's taking too now you know my my. Life in my mental health or better now than they than they may be ever have been in my adult life. So, that's that's what it's all about for me at this point. Amen to that brother and I would just close with this thought it just. If you ever find yourself. Sitting someplace thinking. You want to go open up the MINIBAR and grout. That one little bottle go to sleep. You got your wife and your kids in a million people that care about you to think of I. But now you've got my number two. And I. Me Okay call me. And I'll and we'll find another way to to get you some rest. Because it is a daily thing, and I encourage you to continue to work that program. It works if you work as they say, and I just appreciate you sharing your story because I know that there are people that are listening. That are in that place where they don't have the strength or courage. Or whatever it is to open that book in. Surrender and say I don't have this and so No I, it's it's heavy. 'cause I I lost I lost my guy because he couldn't do it and you did and and I just I think it's a beautiful thing and I know you will be tied to those results that I'll be looking. I'll be following you the president. And I'll be cheering y'all, but more importantly upbeat shared on your sobriety and just feeling as great as you feel about stuff, man. Up Terrible. Yes I. Would say goodbye with just. To get some of that stuff out, and you got a lot of people that have your back now that. You probably don't even know about so. Keep doing your thing and keep living in each day. For what it is. Thank you very much, Mike appreciate you have.

That'll be like you might be well. In a year. The need to hold on foot Glenn giveaway bloody likely all right quick question of the day. We've got matchups on the show by the way the fantasy forecast. We've got starts of the week. We got the boom boom kicker. We've got news but here's the quick question. Who is the scariest start for week five confidence? This is a tricky business in fantasy football. We talked a lot in the office yesterday about players like Adam feeling and stefan digs and even even even De'andre Hopkins we had our foot cast our exclusive episode of the show the bonus episode for the foot clan yesterday. There must have been fifty questions about trading four or trading away. The Andre Hopkins because confidence is at an all time low after three bad week so who's the scariest player to put into your lineup week week five look. I'm going to stick with the title of the question. It's scary Terry. Hey here's the scariest not only because of nickname but the reality is I mean I mean. I don't think you can start him even though he's been phenomenal. He's a guy that you have to start when he's out there. Terry Bradshaw that is that's right. Terry Bradshaw Shaw Multiple Super Bowl victories. MVP's wouldn't plan right do not play him. No Terry maclaurin the F. One himself wide receiver rookie from the Washington Redskins if you have him you've been starting him. He's been amazing. He was out last week. Well he's practicing. There's a a good chance he plays this week and I do not think you could play him. You're going up against New England with what Jay Gruden says. They don't have a quarterback which he is right so this is more of a non start than it is a scary start you can't you can't even put them in your lineup with trepidation. I think there are situations like I'm in one work that he might end up in my lineup and trust me Bro. That's scary. I I know you guys are both surprised with my pick. Yes yes we. I am very surprised. We'll talk about later in the show spoiler. It's Melvin Gordon for me guys week. Five Melvin Gordon makes his debut author there has been arguably the most impactful fantasy football running back and he's been heavily involved in the passing game to the tune of like leading the national football league regan yards after the catch. He's been excellent. I just personally don't know what the proportions are going to look like in the effectiveness of Melvin Gordon Gordon in week one. I say it's a scary start. Because of course you gotTa Start Melvin Gordon when he's active. You guys have way more confidence than I do that it will be a big week for them whereas I think. I don't know what I'm going to get out of them so it's a little scary and this is why I mean I'll just split now. He's going to be my start of the week weight or your fear Your scary starter that what your fear is why I made him. I started week I want. I want to tell you look you should start him. You have to start him. He's a good start. I'll tell you the reasons why later but as Nick D. as would say don't be scared. Homie okay thank you. I feel much more comfortable. Mike Mine is the player I wanNA talk about. He's also going to be featured in the news and notes section because what the heck is going on with defined digs. He has been close to horrific for fantasy football until this past week because of course the matchup in Chicago. He goes offer seven for for one zero eight but his target share has been gone. He is very frustrated with the offense and possibly we emma a we don't know what's going on was too fond eggs. I will say this and we'll get into the news but he he's been dealing with recurring injury multiple injuries situations. If you watch watch the game he was banged up. I tend to think is more tied to that but we'll find out coach Anthony Lynn just now said Melvin Gordon will definitely be be a part of the game plan. Here's his quote he will definitely be part of the game plan. He may even start the game so that's exactly why it's very for me. I don't think that there's a guarantee here for Melvin Gordon to have fifty percent snaps thirty percent. I don't know so I look forward to your narratives later on. Let's go ahead and uh move on. Let's get into the news news notes from around the League presented by sleeper so digs didn't practice Wednesday we saw Jalen Ramsey choose not to practice for injury missed the game well. This was undisclosed. Yes there's they're saying it was not an injury reason that he missed the practice. He just wasn't there he and ramp we talk about it. Ian rapoport rappaport tweeted that his frustration with the organization has been palpable. He was not a practice for nine injury. Reasons teammates are left wondering if even wants to be there the team eighteen has been adamant about the fact he's not available for trade but things are coming to ahead Minnesota. If this team starts losing watch out nowadays are winning. Everything gets better when you win. The good news is they play the giants this week so I think they've got a you're talking about the team that has exact same record. Is Them J yes Oh undefeated with their new your quarterback but yes that is very good news for the Vikings still gets played them. So what is this when I am in these situations because I I I mentioned on the show yesterday. Emmanuel Sanders trade rumors right and it makes sense for Denver like manual sanders is one of their older players Chris. Harris is one of the more valuable players his last year of his contract for anything makes sense to move these guys. If your team is not heading the right direction owned Ford from what I understand not the right direction so makes makes your your brain start moving as a fantasy owner and I say well I do. I still want sanders because if he's traded what's his value. Does he get the targets show that he's is getting right now. From Joe FLACCO also who is court and Setina by because if sanders leaves Sutton is Doug. I what happens here with the digs thought I mean do you go after after guy like Adam deal and right now you down as low as you could ever buy him. Now I offered Emmanuel Sanders Chatham. CNN yesterday was turned down but do you go after a guy like dealing on the off. Chance digs is shipped out of town. I would personally go after feeling we argued about this. Mike and I did on the forecast yesterday. I believe you were not in favor of going after and I am in favor of going after feeling I think the squeaky wheel will get the oil. I don't think this team is doing well. I'm not talking about this week. I'm talking about recipes and I. I don't think it's it's possible for them to have the run pass ratio that they've had so far on the year the rest of the season that's not to say they're going to turn around and all of a sudden bi a team that's throwing during the ball a lot but they are astronomically low on passing the ball and this is this is a player and a quarterback that it's not like it's new Oh right out of the deal and and kirk cousins dominated for eight or nine weeks for knows year different AC- but my point is saying human beings throwing catching the ball to each other. I think much brighter days are more kirk cousins to thelander dealing two cousins on the throwing. That true isn't that to each other. I guess that's fair but yeah I am. I am buying low on Adam. Dealing in drugs gets traded. It's great news for both of these guys because right now now there's not enough volume to be split between those two guys and if digs go somewhere his value has to go but up I. I can't imagine they trade him this. They've said he's not being traded to the people say that and then guys get traded do Mike Zimmer has no patience for anything. If IF SAVAN DIGS MRS practices practices and holds out guess what he's GonNa want to jettison like they just gave him a huge contract. He's one of the best young wide receivers in the league. He can be a franchise wide receiver the team for years to come but if you're still fund eggs and yeah you got your money your your generational life changing money but you also want to be a good football player and you're not going to get that opportunity. The way that things are going in Minnesota all right we need to move on because we got fantasy forecast coming up in a lot of news to get through Christian Kirk the ankle injury unlikely to play in week five against the bengals. Larry Fitzgerald obviously is a good start in this match up against Cincinnati. You can have Trent Sherfield airfield and keyshawn Johnson on the outside. They resigned furrow cooper. You're very excited about what's happening in Arizona in general but in week five Christian Kirk is not going to be available salable so you can make your judgments as you see fit there. I don't know how much you guys downgrade Kyla Murray because of the absence of Kirk not not really but the the sneaky Niki starts probably more of what you're looking at a defense tournament would be keyshawn Johnson. Chris Kirk is getting a lot of targets and the cardinals are not going to slow down so that volume has asked to go somewhere all right Damian Williams returned to a full practice. The Damien Williams thing is so bizarre where he you're saying because he hasn't eased himself back in and all of a sudden he's back. Dan just went away. You weren't even hundred percent sure what. What does the full injury? What is the extent of it? I didn't even remember who he was awesome. I'm talking to people who believe in Damian Williams but I mean he just he he retracted in the shadows and all of a sudden he's back in and is going to it's going to affect what's going on with the running back position Kansas City. He's actually Houston Trade for target right now. People that have them. They were disappointed in the beginning and maybe you could go by him. cheap all right and then tyreek hill return to a limited practice. This is a great sign. I don't think he's going to play this week actually like next week but this is assist great outstanding news for the chiefs and it's also may be assigned for fantasy owners do if depending on what you believe about Sammy Watkins with or without detail this could be a chance to sell Watkins more so demarcus Robinson McColl Hartman their value takes a monster hit wind tyreek returns so you're playing with borrowed time on those two players players Emmanuel Sanders Quad Injury Limited at practice dealt dealt with a contusion in Sunday's game says he's good. I think is a great sign that he was limited on a Wednesday today. I expected him to miss practice so I think he's okay yeah. He's totally fine. I mean I'm I'm pretty sure the three of US watched last week him completely ruptured his Achilles. Yeah we watched to the scene and yeah yeah and then then he was back out on the next place. Did you see what he did in between place no put on the Jersey that's so we got up from Sandra. Yes yes pat. Shurmur reiterated that Saquon is possible for Sunday as Stan happened. No you can't do that to him. Don't get your hopes up if you've got saquon. He's not playing this. How about you go by? Sake one sure yes because he's going to play sooner than later is not going to be no eight weeks weeks. That'd be for sure I think the timeline to buy him. Super cheap might be over might be out. Mike Williams limited in practice once again. He has not been healthy this year Sam Darnold. Are we expecting him. He hasn't been clear contact. Adam Gates saying he's the one that has been playing. It's it's like got him. Gazes will something happen. Yeah it look if I secret looks fine to me right yeah Oprah Oprah it sorta like just put them out there air and they'll clear him but I don't. I don't think the time line will allow explain to play this week. Obviously sleepy gets cleared. He's full go. He's practicing but he's practicing on a non contact basis. I expect that he doesn't play this week but it's all a matter of how the testing goes for his spleen spleen on Fridays we do in and out. We'll give you our official prognosis what we think is going to that's not the right word our prediction official prediction of what we think's going to happen players Inter out that'll include Jarvis Landry who still in the concussion protocol heading into Thursday include Kevin Coleman who didn't practice money. We have not had official reports. John on Ross is on. I are now that one is official that one's visual Dontrelle Inman on I R charges try to lose one two three offensive players per week that's kind and if the that's the plan on doing it and they're pulling it off good for you chargers for the first time in eight years the Patriots will have a different placekicker Stephen Gostkowski. Excuse then place on injured reserve it miss four extra points and a field goal so they've signed Mike nugent Mike nugent agent. You'll have to wait that name boom kicker to see oh now. He's in the boom of the week. Is this just because you have a new player rhyme with and you've been with pugin that's true I was racking my brain yeah.

The Titans are three point favorites game as a Yuck thirty nine point over under that gives an implied point total of twenty one points for the titans about eighteen points for the bills. This is why Mike and and I made both sides of this game are streaming defenses of the week. This does not expect to be a high scoring game. No no I'm not excited what about much here guys but we know we can start Derrick Henry each and every week he has been a workhorse. He has been sufficient despite low pass catching involvement. He's the running back eight on our consensus rankings for the week so this is this is a really good matchup for dare Kennedy. It's it's basically deep the Taylormade matchup for him. Really I believe I disagree okay so let me make my case okay. This is a game. It's it's not going to get out of hand. The bills are not going to just go and all of a sudden put up thirty points and they're gonNA be down and they're going to have to go to dion. Lewis does a low scoring affair where D Derrick Henry has been on the field for seventy five percents of snaps. The only worry you have Derrick Henry is that oh no they're down and they've got to go to John Lewis. That's what I don't think that happens in this game and then you look at the defense cross the field the bills are great. They're phenomenal for today's. Nfl they just made it difficult for the Patriots but that's because they stopped the pass they are excellent against quarterbacks wide receivers tight ends but they're one weak spot is running backs and it's you know certain teams we put in in our research for these shows we look at the trends of this season and we look at last last year and so often with defense is completely different. Last year is identical to this year with the bills. They were great in the passing game but they running funnel defense. They're saying go ahead. Try to beat us with the run. That's what we want you to do. We just want you to pass on us. That's what the titans I try to. I am one one hundred percent in your corner on this Derrick Henry twenty-seven carries last week there are there's one guy that can do that and it's Derrick Henry in the NFL NFL and by way of a product of elimination volume is why the bills have given up some points in the running game. It's just redundant redundant. Oh you have to run the ball against them. Derrick Henry can run for three carry against Buffalo. I don't care I think he's going to get twenty five carries in this game when he does does they win. That's the recipe they're favored. I'm all aboard Derrick Henry. I'm not saying benching Henry. I just I the bills when you look at their fantasy points against the running back. I think it's not telling the full story because you can look at who of they face Levian bell he was seventeen for sixty on the ground. That's very very whole-home fantasy numbers Levian Bell scored through the air six receptions thirty two yards and a touchdown then they played against Saquon Barkley. He has superhuman he does not count. He crossed the buffalo bills. Then who's next Joe Mixon fifteen for sixty on the ground. He did his damage through the air Sony Michelle Seventeen for sixty three guys who can't catch the ball like. I think that they're in there is the possibility for them to be in trouble where where all I'm saying is the bills bills where they are. What are they twentieth against fantasy running backs? I think that's not a truce true. Telltale sign of who that defense actually is against grinders. I I agree with you. You in the sense that you look at James White was really one of the running backs that that did in the bills last week but to Andy's point you brought up mixing right. He was fifteen for sixty. You're disappointed pointed but if he gets twenty five carries sure get you're GONNA be fine. You could overcome because we didn't. We actually didn't make any water best last week and because I'm feeling frivolous today Oh i. I'm willing to bet if anybody wants. I'm willing to bet slow. Guarantee waterbed that Derrick Henry scores a touchdown in this guy who ooh anybody who wanted to take that bet no but but in odds are against me on the on the course of the year probably short now okay well then I did my best you did try. I did try short fields or a possibility John challen whether he's coming back up the concussion march super confident in me like Derek Henry's the top five five and a touchdown okay. I'll take that Oh yes waterbed. We needed something on the line there now how helpful that debate was because of her again. I think you're starting them. Regardless sure here's some tough decisions that you have to make though in a game with this kind of over under on the road quarterback conundrums in Buffalo I mean Matt Barkley might end up starting this game but Josh Allen did participate and individual drills regardless. You have have confidence in John Brown Coal Beasley Frank Gore any of the options in Buffalo. The Tennessee defense is pretty good and they're at home confidence. No yeah yeah now really I mean there. There's a situation where you could you know if you're in a double flex league and you need to throw in Colby's Leeann Pierre Schori got thirteen targets last week doc in a full PPO. You're okay there but I there's really you just brought up the wide receivers. I'm not confident in Frank Gore in this match up on the road against a good defense defense certainly not gonNA play defense secretary if he's back. He only stands there to to hurt Gore. There's really almost no bill that I wanNA play even if Josh Allen is in I'm not in love with the wide receivers or Josh Allen in this match upon the road all right Dicey Leagues. Are you interested in Dawson to Knox aquisitions right now sure tight end tight end is really tough in Dawson Knox's. He's seeing volume. Let's see what happens when Tyler Kroft the their free the agent signing actually gets to play but Dawson Knox's. He's shown up man we. You're not seven yards two weeks ago fifty eight this past weekend one of the reasons. I didn't want to pick up. Aj Brown in redraft leagues was because they have this match up on the docket and you don't chase points with Marcus Mariota unless you wanna be sad so brown Davis benching those guys like a dog chasing a car. That's what chasing Marcus Mariota points is like Delaney Walker. Do you start him yeah. You might behalf I. I I think you I think you pretty much have to you. Don't love it because I rankings you. Don't we haven't been tied in fourteen consensus wise. He's been rough rough. Do you take a shot with somebody with more upside. I mean you'd play him. Overdose knocks in this game. Yes the the problem is the guys in front of him are most most likely owned. Though the only one I can think of Emaar maybe era the bronze on the waiver wire and then Tyler I I is certainly on the waiver wire other than that though these you're stuck you're playing I would play Hebron over Walker so defined digs just came the quote on reports. He wants to be traded quote. There's truth to all rumors. I won't be speaking on that. My good just got your that's. That's great. I'm not saying I want to be traded what I'm not saying. I don't want to be treated and I won't yeah that's does is not good man. Let's see doesn't want to go to NASCAR because that's not what he does. He writes the play wide receiver and right now. He's on a team that does not allow him to play wide receiver cause. They only run the ball. I just WanNa know what is happening behind closed doors because it's not normal to have two wide receivers levers show public disdain for what's happening. If it just seems like there might be a disconnect between Kirk cousins the person an atom deal in the person and to find digs the person this is a thirteen and three team with case keenum pro case keenum yeah and sometimes I mean I think that's case keenum's one spot that he fit in the right way and the day believed in him and I don't know what's happening but they're ninety million dollars. There's put you in a really really impossible position right as it as a franchise so he did return to practice today though so there's truth tall rumors Mike I've been told I. I don't think that's true either. I don't think I'll rumors are true. That's that's a good point. They definitely are or not yeah but when some was asking you about a rumor you may have started out then you know Falcons one and three take on the Texans to into to this game. the tech are five point home favourite. It's a forty nine point over under the game looks a little brighter than the one we just talked about. You Got Matt Ryan v Dijon Watson in Home Games for the Shawn Watson. This year has zero passing touchdowns total but but Atlanta has allowed a top three top ten quarterback performances in a row. It has not been pretty for Atlanta this year. They're down Kion O.`Neil their superstar our safety well yeah. This is bad what's wild about defenses. Is You have situations like this where you lose just one key piece and then the house of cards crumbles and this is Your Your Bilo Window on the Andrea. Hopkins is about to slam shut this is it's the trifecta right we had Mike. Mike Evans a few weeks ago then it was Davante Adams now. It's going to be Hav 'cause this is the game. All the stars are aligned. So if you're trying to buy you better do I tried to. I tried to buy him try to give some Tyreek Hill and you know as rejected of course of course he did. Yes it's called sample size. We have sample size on these players. They're really really good so four weeks does not a career defining Deandra Willfuller love them. This is a get right game for me. I would be taking the Texans and the points no almost upset. I think Houston gets right in this one since falcons too dangerous one in four Hayes and and that's not good for players like devante Freeman bribe not good for Calvin Ridley. We've seen this team basically make the decision that we're going to be giving Muhammad's new more targets snaps then fancy owners want and Austin Hoover has been piled on in terms of targets that leaves very little for Calvin Ridley. I'm not excited about Calvin Rudely. I don't think he's a bounce back. Candidate this year Mohamed Sanu averaging six explore targets a game often hooper leading all tight ends in routes run. We are we to the point where we really should be giving most new of wide receiver three type of love. We I mean week. One five for fifty seven week to was an absolute third but then six for seventy five nine for ninety one. That's three of four four weeks over fifty yard. They look plus research. If you look at Calvin Ridley Hamamatsu they've basically just taken turns being the Guy Week one week two. It was Calvin Ridley. Calvin Riley was wide receiver twenty five and the wide receiver eight while Muhammad's new was fifty to seventy eight and then the last two weeks just flip you know we're Calvin on release one hundred and nine and sixty in Muhammad's thirty six fourteen calvin release the more talented player Calvin release the more invested in player. I I think Calvin Ridley is more about sack and he's going to have a good rest of sees yeah I don't. I don't think so you can trust them. I think I'd I'd rather rather go out and play some players that are in a better situation where I just don't know if I trust what this office doing week to week. Even Julio Jones had a rough week last last week so maybe we'll end up with some calvin. Ridley related wrestling season bets not that I would bet on Muhammad's. I'm not crowning Muhammed's new. I've seen enough of him over the course of multiple years we've had that conversation thirteen times mom its annual runoff two games in a row and everyone's like Oh is it time for Muhammad's knew who it is time for right now is awesome hooper. It is yeah tied into on the season. He's a must start. Kenny stills unlikely to Pasta Hooper's the tied into that is correct. What's all right? I am betting yeah. There's I'm calling that impossible. It is look what we want. Aureus factual Mike Week want he was the tight end six than the tight of fifteen the last two weeks he was tied in to end the tied into one. Yes I refuse news to believe off. Hooper showed the signs last year taking a step up this year at the end of the day with this Offensive Line Matt Ryan is not finding Calvin really deep down the field these finding Austin Hooper in the shallow all right. I refused to believe we'll talk about. We'll fuller or later at the running back position. I don't WANNA leave without talking about the incredible Carlos side You can't start him can you I certainly we don't want to start him and that's what's important can you yes talking about scary start yeah that he would qualify me look. He's at home in a matchup favored to win. He's had a couple of big weeks but you know that week to where he got twenty. Rushing carries data appears to be the outlier yes ten ten twelve in his other three games. I'm staying clear of Carlos case. You're curious. Duke Johnson snap count is up to sixty five percent last week. He's also at six point three a carry on the year which is what he does. I think the trend is going to be towards Duke Johnson because Carlos side. We've seen this could be Carlos Carlos Hyde when he comes into team situation he does must be an incredibly charming person because he shows up and there's I always better guys blind him but he gets to be the guy he brings the starbucks day one shows up with he's got the donuts. What's up everybody? The back massages Carlo side is a fine upstanding man coach. Fortunately we don't care he's coach. It takes about three weeks to figure out what the truth is whether it's in Jacksonville whether it's in Cleveland it's very straight yeah. Carlos Ravens steelers ravens three two and two steelers one and three this game has the ravens as three and a half point road favorites man. You know what Oh really do. No I'm not oh you were dying. I thought about it I did think about I worked pretty impressed with Pittsburgh. Last sweet Andy's almost upset of the week this is this is based on trends right now Pittsburgh. Their defense is look much improved over the course of the past two weeks. They seem like they are focused. They found some things work on offense and Shutdown Cincinnati and the ravens gone the opposite direction especially on Defense Lamar Jackson hasn't been elite by way of the passing game although he has certainly been for fantasy and stupid Willie snead garbage time touchdown I just you know these games already extremely competitive additive in division. I think it's going to be tight. I think the steelers can probably hold on in this one. I would forty four and a half point over under I take the under in this one. I see that I mean the way the steelers defense has been playing the steelers. Are I mean they're just a well run organization. They're well coached and they know they're not the same team they were and they've have kind of quickly changed their identity very quickly to be a team that is I mean that you saw that last week. Sixteen passes to the running back trying to dinking in dunk their way. Keep you know the games slower. you know it's basically like trying to run the ball more and yeah. I think the steelers pull this one off as well now that being said I'm taking the under in this one. It tells me that there's not a lot of players I'm excited about. I don't know if I'm chasing down. Say Johnson's since two touchdowns Vance McDonald's questionable may or may not play James Connor questionable didn't practice on Wednesday. I'm willing to Flex Jalen Samuels with the potential Oh for him to be a great start with James Connor missing the game outside of Jalen Simmons and probably an obligatory Juju. Smith Schuster has to stay in my lineup decision. I'm not excited about other steelers. You guys agree on that. You have a different take. Are you willing to flexibility Johnson Samuels Connor introduce masseuse Schuster. That's that's it. It's gotten so bad. You can't even pronounce his name I look I I know you guys might disagree on this one but he's another guy that I would go out and and I would try to buy low. He's talking about Juju Yeah. I still believe the talent will feel like overcome failing yesterday. You were not that person person the the real good sleep the the reality is did you look at this chart the more he s I looked up at the stars and I saw hope here comes Jupiter Star there had been born comes Mars look he is very talented and you know they're not even though I say okay they change their identity. Pass the ball sixteen times a running back last week just a really good game plan. They're not going to be able to do that week in and week out and that was against the team where they didn't need he do much to get the win against the Bengals last night on Monday but if you can't do that we can out that does not mean that you can do something else well and that's the problem problem just because some team decides to stop that or stop some of that that doesn't mean that isn't turned Mason Rudolph into Ben Rothlisberger overnight because they make him drive the ball downfield. We saw some of that against San Francisco and it was ugly so maybe they match ration- happens but I don't know how you can buy I mean what are you buying them with you. Trade and Tyler Lockett Tuck it away to get Juju no training tyler boy to get Juju. I if I could do that I definitely would would you trade Sammy Watkins to get you. I I would trade Sammy Watkins to get to. I would rather not think about it. I don't think I wanNA think about Juju very much. This year. Well applesauce uh-huh nonsense booby pants loss applesauce. I just this is exciting for me. Because I thought that that me and you were done debating June there wouldn't be more waterbeds to that end and now I know that there will be yeah all right the ravens side of the ball. You're starting Lamar. You're starting Ingram Ingraham's the RB five on the season but it has been kind of a up down up down situation but the steelers they can beat on the ground. I think Ingram gets enough done. In this game same markey's Brown averaging eight and a half targets per game he still Bilo for me. Put on record. I like Markey's Brown Morton do so for this game or for Russell for the rest of the season you can put that without bird. Wow waterbed broadmoor. Thank you WanNa come on Mike you can do it. I don't have to be in on that. When you do have to know try- trying to I'm not I just does your under seal? I wanted to fry the meat. Shield already took the bat. I just wanted a friend. I'm just I'm but I'm with you. Then wanted to film I I I am with Louise. There's too many targets in Markey's Brennan's too electric for this downtrend to continue Brooks reminds me that we should it occasionally make a waterbed explanation or explain what we're talking about. If you go to wheel of water dot com does that works yeah verified that or down you can get yeah you can get the APP on the APP store. We do these waterbeds week in and week out where it's a frivolous quick way to put something on the line. We film the payout you spin the wheel. They're a bunch of humiliating ways to have a cup of water poured on you. In correction. Do not go to wheel dot com just download the APP. Are you saying because of the photograph Graf of the three of us on there because it does work but you don't WanNa see that picture. If you want to see Mike with a man bun in me about fifty pounds ago go to wheel of water DOT COM OF WATER DOT COM. I feel fine about the photo. You look pretty much the same all right Mark Andrews. You're putting them back out there. He's he's got a twenty three percent target share. You have to play them yeah because he's tight end but I'm expecting the steelers to to compete in this one patriots four no redskins own for they have chosen to to play this game. There was some talk of just skipping it and counting it as a thirty two nothing shutout. They're putting Brady and Oh yes you know how you sit. Your starters is once you're up enough. That's like pretty much euros zero up enough. I'm sorry Washington fans. This has been rough but it's getting rougher offer the Patriots are fifteen and a half point. Favorites puts them at twenty nine point three points the Redskins at thirteen point eight. This is why Jason said you. You can't start tearing McLaren. You cannot start any player on the Washington redskins except for the flex consideration of Chris Thompson Jason Explain in yesterday. He doesn't believe Chris Thompson will be that effective that keep him in front of the defence. I just think it's the nature of targets I just think Chris Thompson will do enough to keep them. Pr Argonne like he'll have many points in the flack have enough perceptions to get it done. The Patriots have been helped by the most cake schedule of all time but this continues. This is not a this isn't a zig zag of the season now when you look at what the Patriots their number one against quarterbacks number two against running backs number two it gets wide receivers and number Forbes tighten their top five against all positions. You're starting your patriots defense. You don't start a single Washington in anything maybe Chris Thompson Flex because they're gonNA be down thirty sure confidence level and Sony Michelle this week we haven't ms are run indecent running back twenty five on the week. We actually have James White at twenty four so those two players on the fringe running back to running back three area so fairly confident often at Mike fairly a little crack in the voice kind of situation because it's look if you are out there with a one hundred percents supreme confidence in Sony Michelle then we need to have a discussion because I want to learn why I wanna know your ways like you are it clearly a very confident person is Sony Michelle has been put in a positive game script every single week and he is not not really come through for his draft stock. We did a lot of time talking about why you know. Sunny Michelle has been in the position where he should be. Should it'd be great games. They're they're always winning right Jay Yeah Yup. They're they're in the lead but it's not been pretty for Julia delman. It's not been pretty for mean elements finished twenty twenty eight fifty third eighteenth fifty six. That's not been worthwhile Josh Gordon since week one which was on the fringe of the top twenty four eight thousand five hundred forty seven. I am excited for Drugs Gordon this week. That was the name I wanted to bring up. He's a guy that if you know I could have made him. I started the week in in the sense that he is a friend guy that you haven't known. Should I start him. Should I not this matchup is really I liked it yeah. Josh Norman is going to be on them Josh Norman if you remember the name from years ago he was once good at football. He is no longer and I think I think he'll be exploited in this matchup at home. I I like Josh. Gordon's play this week interesting yeah I. I think I have a hard time deciding between Gordon endorse it. I'd rather play than either of those two guys I can agree with that but I think all three washy resort employees and Watson to see him play for his debut no but he's he's on the radar. I think you you keep in mind signed. Maybe pick up prior to the week stash little glance over Adam on the waiver wire. Give Him a little wink. That's fine. It was up dude. What's up? Do you wink at dudes when you say houses feel. It feels awkward because you're not a Wiki Wiki. I don't even know what to do it right. You're not a winky fellow. Are Are there winky guys. All what I'm more of a twinkie guy yes there there are there twinkies there are W- inkers out there and look there are there are there are certainly is there. An Age that you get to or winking is a little bit less awkward though sixty. If you have gray hair on your a winker started age. There's this you gotTa Grandpa like good job champ. No no no my point is you gotta be able to read the situation because it just takes one bad wink and you gotta get out of the game. It's good to know that winky's twinkies going to be part of the show titled Today. That makes me feel happy. Thanks Iraq wink speaking to I've got leaf got a date was little debbie. Maybe you wouldn't get little debbie. No no all right but as long as you do the if you and your finger guns with the sound combined with the wink then everything is okay yeah all right. Nothing is okay start rounding. That's your redskins. His next game cardinals bangles. Hello someone's gotTa Win Cartels out three in one bengals Owen four forty seven and a half point over under bengals at three and a half point favorites. I'm machine to say I think the Bengals win this game and the cardinals sad season continues Kyla Mary. I think you can play him. He's he's always been a fringe wide receiver quarterback. One this this year honestly this entire game should be full of fantasy goodness the cardinals or the they they run at the fastest pace of play the bengals also play at a a at that higher rate of speed and when you combine those things that's the lot of extra plays a lot oughta extra volume for your offenses. Meanwhile the defense on both sides of the field these are teams were exploiting for fantasy football football so both sides should be fantastic. I'm extremely excited for Tyler Boyd the to bounce back after last week's dud he has the fourth most targets targets in the NFL. I chased those targets. No John Ross you. GotTa go Tyler Boyd here odd and tate. I play I mean because you lost Jon Rao. It really stinks in this game that you lost Chris Kirk and you lost John Ross right. Both of those guys would've been such good plays but Mike Right those targets are going to go somewhere. They don't just disappear and now the offense is don't work that that's where I think keyshawn Johnson on the cardinal side and Auden Tate on the Bengal side are names that when you're in those deeper leagues eggs and you need a a flex spot start those guys on your waiver wire that you could do worse. They're not going to goose golden tate this week in his debut or Auden Golden Goldiner on. I'm GonNa go autumn now. It was pointed out to me the AU is the periodic table symbol for gold or you. Have this is cool. There's two golden told yeah cooled and then deion ought I mean this is the way we need a battle here. FELLAS Tait Tait guys is we need to work this out. This is what the foot clan's about. There's some scientists in that group. This is research but yeah this is very important tape versus Auden tate this week yeah. I'm taking the RT Auden tate the real gold is a you know. You're blown away right now because it's a you. Da Da Golden Gate yeah incredible work parents David Johnson Joe Mixing. You're starting them. Both we'll talk about Joe Mixing in a little a bit David Johnson's rby eight on the season third most running back receptions. That's that's GonNa continue for as long as Kyla Murray is a rookie geat and for as long as that offensive line is a sieve do guys know of any recent history of the bengals just bleeding out two running backs catching the ball like sixteen times in one game zero and completions yeah yeah I think I happened recently from my recollection goodness so tyler effort. Are you willing to take the shot on him. I Know Jason is I'm a no I am. I am definitely willing. We'll talk about them in a minute and look the referred for me to say my anti tyler effort stance now ruined because he he's GonNa be my side of the week. Tell me no no. I don't you shut up. I'll I'll bring up the negatives. You're GONNA talk about. No no no ball's in your court i. I'm just hesitant you could do worse. I heard they're trying to involve a more. I'm just not excited with twenty one snaps last week. I'm not excited with the fact that you know. You're counting on a guy. That hasn't been fantasy relevant in a while. If you've got a touchdown you're going to be happy the cardinals they serve them up on a silver platter so you've got plenty of arguments in your favor. I just don't know how far the depth chart of relevant titans I go to give the cardinals the against the cardinals they give twenty three points to the fancy tight end but DJ orange has been released. If you watch what has taken place through the first four weeks he's been solely responsible for these tight ends and Dan he's been solely irresponsible so swearing juror has been beyond atrocious and he has played one hundred percent of snaps in these games and they just flat cut him so they are trying to make a difference against the tight end position. They obviously been listening. They've been listening to their flaws but I'm go ahead and say the backup to. Dj swearing not going to be the answer. We'll see we will see and the counterpoint to the the I. for talking about his snaps. That's that's who Eric Brown has been and when you yeah he's not on the field a ton but he's getting at least a few you targets in the matchup is so juicy yeah. It's just a matter of if you have limited snaps. You have limited opportunities if you don't capitalize on them you're at a far greater risk started starting starting tyler effort then you are Laney Walker of getting goose yeah. Your odds are much higher risk now. If you don't have an option I don't take. I don't mind taking in the shot last week. It was one played Eric Iran Right Eric Rowe was the perfect example last week. He goes through the entire game garbage time forty eight yard touchdown. You're the happiest man in town amount yup so all right. I'm excited for that game to we'll see what defense can show up for five minutes at a time and and win the game the the Jags the panthers both teams to and to this game is in Carolina Carolina's three and a half point favorite. I had a real hard time. We do a weekly at the studio here. like a pick. Em You know an office pool. this was one of the matches I stared down and said I know the panthers as a favorite it's too this one's tough yeah but ordinary means US active and I went to Carolina Panthers. I wanted the home team that's favored and the belief that their defense has been so so good and I talked about Carolina being a great streaming defense to forty one point over under. I just think that the defense is going to cause fits for Gardner mentioned and I don't know if you know a couple of plays in this game from Gardner is going to be enough to beat Christian McCaffrey. I it's going to be a close one you start. CMC's AMC start foreign at you start to get into muddy water everywhere else for fantasy football confidence levels. Dj More Curtis Samuel will has a great start to the year. We've got them outside the top twenty four this week Curtis Samuel. I think we mayhem too high yeah. Curtis Samuel is a guy that I am somewhat interested in in the sense that if you look at area arts and who's been really getting top level air yards that hasn't really done it hasn't broken out with those targets curtis. Samuel is getting some deep shots and so you know I in a match up that will they have Jalen Ramsey. I don't know he he is was not at practice again and there's really no reason other than he's demanding trade so if he's basically GonNa sit out then Curtis. Samuel is interesting if he's in I'm worried about all the options cause him combined with Aj Buja we know how good Jacksonville's defense can be and we've seen Dj. Moore's target's share just absolutely melt like the wicked witch since Kyle took over weeks one and two with Cam ten targets fourteen targets these past two weeks to targets in a game against Arizona. Dj Moore sought to targets yeah he caught one for a fifty two yard touchdown but then five targets this past week as well it. It's it's tough sledding for. DJ MORE UNTIL CAM gets back. Are there other players from this game that you're interested in rolling out there I was I will they'll play. Dj Shark is a wide receiver three or a flex play. We're four games in. We've we have enough evidence that Gardner is GonNa throw to him and he's a deep threat so I think that despite the matchup he still alot in play when you got four three three speed yeah you can break something off tall is he six six three six three. I think gets four three four. He's got a wingspan to he's a he's a good looking player. He can fly because of the wingspan. I see yeah 'cause birds. Birds have wings in that knowing they spend and then then you can fly with it not all of them. Though you know he's also got hollow bones. We found out the other day. Jason Thought Otters had fence while no we found found out that I thought an otter wasn't mind was a seal for a second. I look the bottles and then I realized Oh those are the cutest things on the planet but they have hands not they pause yeah like otters will hence they hold pause buccaneers saints buccaneers two and two saints three in no one had had trouble with this game two saints three and a half point home favorites forty seven point over under coming off the really impressive performance on the road from Tampa up up in Los Angeles the monster performances from Winston from Evans from Godwin. I just think you can bank on production in Tampa in the passing game. I'm in you know so I think Winston Evans Godwin Howard. What do you do with our go? Oh do you put yourself out of your own misery. We do you release him. Do you move on Howard or I for Howard or Jimmy Graham. What do you what do you want to do with? OJ Howard this week if I order Jimmy Graham Oh Jimmy Graham Howard and I for is a legit disgusting question that you have to say okay well. You know what what's what's the likelihood that one of these guys get touchdown this year and last year the saints were pretty darn good against tight in a pretty bad against wide receiver that's pretty much recipe of the Tampa Bay buccaneers they've been thrown to the wide receiver and ignoring the tight end and if one does get it is gonNA be OJ Howard. Is it going to be cameron break. I mean granted. You could save us on a for effort but as gross as it is. I think I leaned tyler I for the matchup. I still think Howard is going to have the ebbing game soon. I just don't know if I want to be around to wait on it. I'm not dropping how because of how weak the Titan landscape is. I still believe the Taliban Dan. I know it's hard well here. Here's coming up for for Howard you have so you've the saints and you have Carolina then you have a bye week then you have Tennessee gross so that is rough what you do this if you've got. OJ Howard go look look at other teams that have no tight end there. There's always four or five teams in every league that are just they're scraping off the waivers every single week to find a tight end look at the guy who picked up tolerate for it see if you could trade him the name of Oj Howard just in screen shots of Lonzo willing to move on so no. I'm no. I'm not a obviously if you have a better option sitting out there if it was a will dizzy question it's obvious but I'm not moving on. If if I am going to have catchers from Howard Howard is so far I think has to be one of the top busts of fair. That's very fair and the thing in the back of everyone's mind as well Bruce Arians tints have problems with tight ends and so is this a real thing it makes it easier to buy into the fact he's just going to end up a bus. The whole year bridgewater averaging one hundred seventy eight passing yards per game. Oh Liar giving up three hundred and eighteen a game although that's because Gerry Goffin over four thousand in the last game alone is like the average like when the rock and a hard replaces like a piece of paper meets a Napkin if something's gotTa give here. I'm going to bet on bridgewater throwing for under two hundred I would agree oh come on this is going back a long time not to mention. They're running an offense. That's based on a great defense. You can't leverage runner make mistakes and you can't let him throw the ball too much and guess what it works. They win with that recipe. That'll be the recipe in this game. Two is going to be Alvin Kamara. He's going to be a stone cold defense that we saw last week or the hopes of it that we saw against Dallas and they're at home so I you know what can you do with one hundred and seventy eight passing yards. You can start your Michael Thomas. You can start your Alvin Kamara and then in this case as we move on to start to the week. Mike believes you can start. Your jared interesting starts of the week all right. Let's start right there. Mike why not short tied hi. Dan started the week yeah and look at it is a little bit gross because of what Teddy Bridgewater has been doing. I'm just following the process it'll be it's scary and Jared Cook. He had six targets this past week. It's it's not the easiest thing to find a a tight end who can get that. Many targets and Tampa Bay's the second worst first team against the tight end position at home. You're talking about a forty seven point over under it. I'm not forcing Jared Cook in there but I think that he is he's at least safe to get you a few points and has the option to or the the ability to score touchdowns in there yeah and I've brought mine up already it. It is tyler I for I know that it's somewhat low hanging fruit and also gross in the sense that he hasn't been great. He's on every waiver wire out there but but I I genuinely believe that the cardinals look they they've known about their problem for weeks and they haven't been able to fix it and I think because they don't have the personnel to fix it. You've got tyler is he's got a touchdown this year and he dropped a touchdown last week. We'd be feeling really different if he's already got a touchdown and a half of his weeks so now he's facing the Arizona cardinals. It's you know hopefully for us. Cardinals fans it will change I don't I don't believe it. Will I love Jimmy Graham. I am this week Jimmy Graham. I started the week tight imposition. This is opportunity more than talent. This is Jimmy Graham effective last week with Davante Adams off the field he will soak up targets targets. You're not gonNA see. MVSA soak up targets. It'll be Jimmy Graham might very well lead the team in receptions yards he could and touchdowns this week. He's tied for the League lead at the tight end position in red zone targets. They look to him down there and without Davante Adams. We're GONNA look there frequently so if you're looking for any one of these three it's Jimmy Graham Ram Jimmy. All three of US know Jimmy Graham greater sign than Tyler I for Jared Cook here all right now. Let's go to the wide receiver position where I'M GONNA go with will fuller will fuller has the most air yards in the NFL without a touchdown. It's coming. I said it's get right game for Houston at home. I think they figure it out this week. Kenny stills unlikely likely to play in this game giving Willfuller even more of a target share. He's on the field all the time. It just hasn't happened yet. I'm banking on it. This week will fuller. I think you can put them in your lineup. I'd put him out there over Tate and those type of fringe guys scary. I'd be playing well fuller. Yes I agree my my started. The week is Larry Fitzgerald we talk about Hey. Maybe keyshawn Johnson gets a little bit more involved wall. Chris Kirk is gone but you know who's definitely going to be heavily is Larry Fitzgerald. That's against hapless bengals defeats in a game that should be back and forth quick pace of play Larry Fitzgerald's the wide receiver sixteen on the season and so far this year he just broke the number to all time record for receptions and he was depressed after the game because of the showing I think he wants to come out and ball out making Larry my started the week I'm going with a confidence play. Just that boosts because this wide receiver. He's on people's teams do do I actually play this guy. It's Alan Robinson I get that they have the backup quarterback chase Daniel in there but the matchup is solid against Oakland and chasing look. He's been very serviceable for for when he's had to fill in for trubisky. We're talking a couple of games last year and this look look at last week against Minnesota seven targets seven receptions seventy seven yards. We call that the Jackpot Allen Robinson is just too involved seven at least seven targets every single week. He's getting that the target's share for Chicago. He is the Alpha in this offense for the passing game and I think you can start him all right. You guys want to move onto the running. Backs sure all right Joe Mixing. I'm taking Joe Mix and this is the breakout week for him. Arizona giving up the fifth most rushing yards in football. He's at home home. He's looked the part to me especially over the past couple of weeks. I thought he did well for himself. Against the Buffalo Defense did everything he could using the passing game. You haven't seen Geo Bernard on the field. This seems like a game where they're actually favored at home without genres. Joe Mixing is a confidence the push for me yeah. I'm giving a confidence push to make sure that you start Melvin Gordon this week. It's not to say that he's going to have his best game of the season here. He'll split time with us and I think we could share this. One sure like my running back started the week is Austin and I completely love it. I I win to make my start of the week Melvin Gordon and Austin equitor but you already had equity you could start. Both of these guys look what Leonard Fournette did to the Broncos last week the Broncos have I've given up over six hundred rushing yards in four games. The wide receiving corps for the CHARGERS is depleted. Everyone's injured other than Keenan Allen. Melvin Gordon got back to practice last week. Justin Jackson is injured start. Both these guys are going to have great weeks leaks all right and then quarterback Mike. Could you have is your quarterback start of the week. I'm going from streamer to start or I'm taking Jacoby perset as my guy with the Kansas City match they're giving up the eighth most points to the quarterback position the over under is ridiculous as it always is in Kansas City chiefs games and in our NFL league one matchup. That's where we are going with we are we're playing jacoby percent. I'm going to go with a little deeper. Pick here. I like it and it's actually Jimmy Garoppolo at home against Cleveland off the bye week. I think he's going to have an impressive performance. I believe in that extra week of preparation and players getting healthy Dante Peta's I believe in Brcko Jimmy G. finding away so I'm GonNa go with Jimmy Garoppolo a little bit of a deeper replay he probably fits in that streaming category certainly but I'm GonNa make him. I start of the week and I'm GONNA go a little higher up with Carson Wentz a guy that I fake Carson Wentz owners have not always done what to do with them. Even though if you look backwards hindsight being twenty twenty he has been top ten and fantasy every single single week at this point. You have to consider him a guy that you start on every matchup and this is against the jets. It's a winnable matchup. You've got alshon Jeffery back. I you know I I can't imagine not starting Carson Wentz all right. That's it for our starts of the week. One more very important very well researched very astute IM- very practical segment Jason Moore's ironclad locked and loaded one hundred percent guaranteed boom boom kicker of the week. Oh this week's a banger. Don't be fooled coming off the bye. It's the niners Robbie us. I just realized I guess it would have been counterintuitive to your. He's your star that we he should. He should be in the the nomination for the scary start because Ryan Green yes. He must kick better in October. Am I right has to. What do you think I mean? October is here and I may gould my start of the week. This is deep dive dive research on kickers. You're just realizing this right now right Jay walk. That's for sure you right all right.

You're low. We are the fantasy footballers and it is wednesday august august twenty first. We have a great show for you today. Have some buyer's sell some news are individual bust pixel hickson. We're gonna get heated heated up gloves or coming off. Bus are the most difficult of projections actions because the word bus just means different things right different people so we'll try to qualify that but when you talk about breakouts and sleepers and value buster the ones the biggest statement. It feels like yes and it's such a negative connotation. That's exactly that's the difference. We talking people up. That's fun the potential of somebody but the the real the real facts of fantasy football players you draft will disappoint appoint. They will bus compared to their a._d._p. They will just bust outright and maybe they get injured like there's so many variables and it's it's rough to imbue that upon someone to say because it's not necessarily you're saying that players sucks you're saying they won't return famously value value compared to where the market has been going and i. I would just say that bus. Are you know the the coin bus. The players to avoid that is so oh important in fantasy football. I think that's more important than just the <hes> the breakouts <hes> if you look at drafts and you go through maybe you've got certain certain picks in each round. That are your favorite. You prefer this guy over that guy but they're they're both good options. It's really about avoiding the certain picks that are going to be like oof. You've you wasted that. You wasted that. Pick yeah kind of the way i look at mine today is do you know as a fantasy on her what you're actually getting with this player a lot of the times. We think we're going to get one thing our picks today. We'll be us saying. We think you're going to get something else. Then you expect your appointing calling fifteenth round guy a bust because nobody's expecting something from them. Your picks today are fascinating to me because they are the identical opposites sits of one another like the it's so interesting because the in and we'll talk about it when we get to your actual bus picks but i there just the inverse situations situations of one another. I'll explain. I'm warning you jason. I'm not they're not in here to be contentious right and they're not in here to be contrary into you guys and what you believe even though they are. That's not the purpose. The purpose is to try to color in. Maybe the other side of <hes> the argument because you guys are so bullish on a couple of players and i'm convicted that these bus picks right and we'll see we'll get into it. It is a wednesday episode of the show which means by yoursel presented by pristine auction all right wednesdays that means bhai or sell and two day. My bold predictions article hit the website every year i put out i sell you sell in the article that what we were doing. No not yet might just hang in there. I gotta get the hang of this thing but the buyer sell. I'm sorry the bold predictions article every year. I put it out thirty two predictions. They're meant to be spicy. They're meant to be extreme last year. <hes> a couple of them. You know mike williams double digit touchdowns. That was one of the this hot and spicy projections that worked out josh allen. He's going to be way more valuable than people think. They don't hit their mid to be spicy but they're not andy's indies lukewarm room temperature water takes lukewarm locks of the season but let's have some fun with them today. We're gonna do buyer sell you might sell all of them because they're bold predictions but i'm going to bring a couple of them up you guys tell me if you're buying or selling the bold prediction and we'll go through a few. I one bold prediction from the jets. Sam darnold has more q._b. One week's been mitch trubisky in twenty nineteen or sell. This one is tough because sam darnold doesn't have the mobility. He doesn't get the the feet that mitch trubisky has shown off in the past and you elevate yourself quickly to a quarterback one you rip off a thirty yard run or or you just have four rushing attempts in game name. It's it's going to help that floor so much but i sam darnold is a better quarterback the mitch trubisky in my opinion but that a cell i i gotta sell it just because of the feet of trubisky saying same argument here love sam darnold. I le i've loved what i've seen this season. I agree that he's a better quarterback but because fantasy see scoring is so in the favor of rushing for quarterbacks mitch. Trubisky is a great runner now. Are you drinking a water or a you who who right now jason. I am drinking a water okay. I thought you pulled out i did but i didn't want to give me you know the the frog through but i got it all ready so does it doesn't really make a difference thing makes a difference. I should not i you know what i should do. There isn't product in a you who know i should just down a bunch of whole milk before the show. Please no warm whole milk lou. Maybe maybe somehow that would help all right. You're selling the first one like it's rano. It pulls it all down. Just try drain. Oh all right <hes> we do not endorse that only if my bus comes drew will he go the drain yeah all right next one buyer sell all three rams wide receivers will finish outside the top twelve in total fantasy esi woo points so you're going the route that they're all great yes but none of them actually make it into the top twelve. Yes is it because to to me if this comes true. They're all not in the top twelve that means that three rams are in the range of their twenty year in the top fourteen top thirteen at that point so it's certainly possible but i think one of them is able to take the lead right now initiative in top twelve hundred cell. I like the prediction. It could very easily happen. We talked about the old line struggles there and you know the offense does take a step back. This'll clearly come true but i like robert woods. I believe in him so i'm going to stick with him. <hes> <hes> being able to be in that top twelve all right. We'll go with one more bold prediction that you can both sell dalvin cooked leads the n._f._c. n._f._c. in rushing yardage in a healthy twenty nineteen season to me. This is the last year joe mixon lead the a._f._c. a._f._c. This is the i see that as the parallel here on the n._f._c. side. I know he's got some pretty stiff competition. Yes running back but their commitment amendment to the ron galvin cook stays healthy leads the n._f._c. in total rushing yardage which doesn't mean he's the number. One fantasy player just means that consistently. He's he's getting the rock. I mean step one of being the the yardage leader on the ground is playing nearly full season that always helps but but man that is so that hasn't beaten out saquon the potential of todd gurley ezekiel elliott elliott who is kabul man. I i mean just just hanging out chillan and kabo. I'm going to sell hey. I'm going to sell but i wanna buy one so you need to you know read number to read the number two because i want to buy all right. We'll do one more then despite fewer snaps this is the colts projection colts bold prediction for the year despite fight fewer snaps mo alley jar laycock's tied in scores twice as many touchdowns twice as mini as jack doyle this season now this. This is a struggle for me because i'm contractually obligated to oh by all gigantic propaganda number one. If you had said eric e. braun could have immediately jumped in on that protest because of of what what i've had to do it but air hebron by the way seven xt what jack doyle did last year. That's jack doyle to and it's a lot of the season i love optus. I'm gonna i'm gonna buy it just because his jugantar thank. The baby hands is. It's legitimately possible is that all three of these tight tight ends have four touchdowns at the end of the season and maybe doyle has to yeah all right well.

News notes from around the league presented by sleeper sleeper finally happened guys they did it. They got an extension done good for you. Dallas ellis dallas cowboys dealing with you know what a mclaren cooper dak prescott ezekiel elliot <hes> all players that need extensions. It's so they did they got a contract extension. Don for linebacker jalen smith the yesterday was so funny as this aw jalen smit in ways holidays congrats to you one good move by taos like this was an excellent move for your defense but the way this was teased to the media i it was very intentional of of trying to build up high for the cowboys. You know we all got the alert. The cowboys have finally they have an extension for somebody. There's a press conference coming. Who's gonna be and it'd be the best were running wild. Which of the three offensive players is <hes> mister kabo back for new contract but it was just a fish slap to the face for all of us which which nobody likes you ever been slapped by fish knows we all wear yesterday <hes> we all were yesterday metaphorically yes because you guys are out outta town no because because they signed jaylen okay i got i got disconnected because i was now picturing a fish actually slapping someone not somebody right because you said if you've ever been slapped by a fish made me think that the fish had done the slapping that would be fine. I've never been slapped by a fish. I've never been slapped with a fish is one of the things i take great pride in. I've led my life in a way where that has not happened yet. You do not soon. Forget your first fish slash brooks. Can you order some whole fish. The i have i have had somebody string of fish up to my car ones and put it through the the antenna and then i didn't it was it was a gag bag from a friend a full on fish. I'm talking like two foot fish through the jawbone of the fish. I didn't notice that i drove down the freeway with a fish smacking against my car for an afternoon. That's that's a story from my past tonight. All right more news. Darius guys expected to play in the thursday preseason game against the falcons okay. Are you expected to watch yes. It's my job. I wanna see looks. I wanna see how many how many staff does he actually get it. How fluid does he look all right. Derrick henry resume practicing on monday. Not a lot of derrick henry talk is he's been on the shelf with the calf injury so good thing yes. Yes texans running back. Duke johnson returned to practice after the hamstring injury. Are you taking late. Round shots do johnson. I'm donnelly or tony pollard. Layton drafts. I would rather have pollard for the upside. You start the season with a stud running back. I expect do johnson to be a little bit. More involved on a regular basis through the season zeke were back then then pollard obviously but i don't expect huge things for duke johnson. I don't think he's going to take take over that role. He's not made to be. He's he's he. He's great at the role. He plays a third down guy but he's doing that for a team that passes to the running back. You know very little over the last five years they're last place so <hes> i'm not super excited about duke johnson ravens coach. John harbaugh came out said marquees. He's brown rookie wide receiver first rounder has quote a ways to go he had been recovering from an injury. I've heard a lot more about miles boykin around camp than markey's archies brown. <hes> i'm kind of interested in in miles boykin layton drafts or off the waiver wire gonna have my. I glancing his direction. If lamar jackson takes a step forward throwing the football but markey's brown right now it's going to be deep threat taken the top off at times but fantasy hennessy wise not this year probably not this year. All right chargers have re-signed dontrelle inman. He's back. It's funny because on on the show the other day i brought up how different the offense might look without keenan. Keenan's hurt gordon gordon's holding out we forget tyrel williams is gone as well like lost him in the offseason charger. Fans were quick to remind me that they won games without keenan gordon but i would imagine you want them on roster and inman had yet to find here back in two thousand sixteen when they were the san diego chargers fifty eight receptions eight hundred ten yards. I couldn't better landing spot to get some work but not really fantasy element all right more david montgomery hype we can get the hype train going again on no of against begins i mean has it ever stopped but coach matt nagy came out and said <hes> you've probably gave rico on a little too much work last season said they moved him around a lot said that they may be gave him too much and when you mentally drained them pulls them back physically this could be more about so how much they asked cohen to do in terms of your in the slot on this player at a wide receiver position. You're playing running back on this down but nevertheless they believe and i and love david montgomery they do yeah and i think david montgomery is a solid pick. I mean we've we've talked this last week over and over about the success of rookie running backs. He's in a good system. He's going to be used and he's talented back so i i like there's pretty much when it comes to david montgomery mile l. sanders josh jacobs. I think they're all actually good values right now. Yeah i go back and forth between montgomery in sanders in dynasty perspective. <hes> i think montgomery's a safer pick right now for like guaranteed workload from week one. I don't know what but the season looks like you know. I don't know what it looks like. The four five six weeks into the year. I think there is a fantasy roster that would be better off with montgomery and there's a fantasy zero. That's probably better off with miles sanders but <hes> right now montgomery should have more work from week one guaranteed to him in my opinion the mile sanders well all right that is it for news notes. A reminder sleeper does not just break the latest news. They're the best fantasy platform as simple or complex as you need need flexible download today and we're going to get into the boss before we do that. We want to thank <hes> one of the sponsors of today's show. I have completely renovated my entire. You have it. You know this mike. This was months ago getting a good pair of jeans like your favorite pair of jeans. That's like like winning a contested catch. That's a big play moment and i redid all on my jeans once. I wore some muggsy jeans. That's just what happened. Mugsy genes are more comfortable than all other genes in the world and they don't feel like jeans. I think that's the big thing. They don't feel like wearing a stiff pair of jeans. They use proprietary fabrics a blend of these high tech materials that make jeans insanely soft it does not. I feel like a regular pair of jeans. They're all that i wear. They come in this stylish fit. That looks really good. It's not too bad. He is not too tight <hes>. I don't know why we have an unlocked to the secret before dude. If you're not wearing stretchy jeans man they're great. They're absolutely great when i put them on. Change your life. It was like goodbye everything else. That's all i wear so the the guys at mugs are so confident that you will love them as well. They're offering free shipping and returns. Your comfort is one hundred percent guaranteed of 'em. You heard it free shipping and returns. Do you your legs a favor. Mike grab your own pair of jeans that are sweeping the nation by heading muggy dot com and using the code footballers for ten percent off that is m. u. G. s. y. Dot com and use the code footballers for ten dollars off and hey foot clan you hungry angry. You better be white. Castle is supporting today's show and their support all of us yes. We just heard they're they are building out here. Eh are and i can't wait but in the meantime i can still have my white castle. The microwavable white castle burgers may with one hundred percent beef patties. Addy's that are so delicious you know i was reading this this read and just a you know preparing like okay. I've got to talk about white castle and i can't read this without desperately craving white castle. You know they talk about that. One of a kind taste you know that that served on the bed of steamed steamed grilled onions and the off i just i want them right now. You have in a moment. I'm having a moment and they have other flavors to. They have a jalapeno cheese slider. They have just cheese sliders so even if you're vegetarian look there is there is a white castle for all people out there <hes> from from the castle or at the grocery store you could satisfy your crave anytime with white castle go to white castle dot com slash footballers to get a dollar off the purchase of any four or six pack white castle sliders. Are you telling me you're crave can be satisfied. Jesse unknowingly said he would never be sad. That song was about me. I'll never be satisfied but momentarily early in the moment until the next lighter <hes> all right. We are talking about our busts picks. There's obviously there's there's are kind of consensus bus in the ultimate draft kit. We just did the breakout show where we brought forth a couple of names each so we're doing the same thing here the i guess. I'm starting to go ahead. <hes> damian williams boo hoo damian williams is one of my i bus. It does not mean that you do not draft amien williams but you need to know what you are getting. You need to know what you're drafting. You might want to adjust adjust where you are drafting him and i know there are fantasy pundits in the world who have a million shares of damien williams. I'm not one of them guilty <music>. I'm not one of them and there's a lot of things that go into into focus here. There was a small window in this off season where i believed that damien amien williams had the opportunity necessary to return that value that window has closed for me. It wasn't opened opened in the beginning. It's not open now. He's got a hundred and eighty rushes in his career. Over five seasons. He's twenty seven years old. Never had a slig- never had more than thirteen carries in a game ever in his career. During my note well okay yes. He had twenty five in the playoff game last year. I see the note there. I just say regular season game for fancy purposes. He's never had more than thirteen. I'm not saying that i feel like the argument built for damien. Williams is built entirely on the back of patrick mahomes uh-huh andy reid and that's a pretty decent argument for who's starting the problem is you're going to see some regression in the catches last year he he caught ninety. Five percent senate passes his way his entire career is seventy percent cash guy. That's not going to happen again. They teams come out and said it's gonna be a committee my eyeballs watching the kansas city chiefs. I believe that darwin thompsons going to have a role carved out in this offense. I believe that they're going to use a committee. I believe that damien williams has proved he can barely stay healthy on a consistent tim basis and i actually i actually see some similarities to the way fantasy players might be looking at damien williams and the way that they look derrick henry inasmuch as you have a pretty big career for both players you have pretty small amount of games at the end of last season that were amazing for both players and then we're trying to project. Ford is the amazing part the reality or is the previous part of their career the reality again he's not going to bust and as as far as you draft him your debt my thought is i think he's being drafted too high. I think he's the player the represents the most risk at the running back position in his tear and that's bar none. I mean the teams come out and said he's going to be a part of a committee and we have to trust that he's going to be the damien williams of the last five games as opposed to the damien williams preceding that and that's where i'm at and i'm happy to talk about it. It's just i think he's being drafted to hi. He's i never wanna take him at the tier that he's that i have more confidence in players like devante freeman. It's har- it's hard to draft damien williams. I believe that when this is when i talked about your picks being inverse of one another for running backs specifically there is the huge debate of talent versus opportunity you want both which one do you want more opportunity over talent and this is. I've i've said for a long time. I don't think damian williams is a very talented. I mean he's talented insofar as he's an n._f._l. Running back right like they're all talented but among his peers he is not special. He is not a talented player compared to the elites. I think what makes them good. It's it's one hundred percent the opportunity and then i'll give them credit like. I don't think he's the best pass catcher in the in football. I don't think he's the best running back in football. His versatility is what gives him playing time on this roster and obviously they committed some money to them and things like that. I just don't have the confidence level that other fantasy owners have drafting damien williams and that's you know behind him. I have so much excitement over players like chris carson which you can get way later in the draft and i feel better about chris carson than i do damien williams so i just can't see myself drafting him so i think that <hes> he qualifies as a bus for me. Yeah i mean we mike and i were in l._a. Yesterday they <hes> shooting some stuff for the n._f._l. League one <hes> come into a screen near you but we were talking about we were talking about damian williams and you know where we stand right now and i believe that damon williams will have a successful role but that if he loses it for a moment he might not get get it back. There's just no investment in the team and if darwin thompson works takeover if damian williams gets a hamstring injury in week three he's not he's not a melvin gordon type when he comes back. He's just got the job. He's the he's the guy that's my worry so when it comes to him being a bust pick. I am perfectly fine with that. Alex collins was this this category last year didn't play the preseason the guy no matter what compensated won't that happens the players every year mike i i respect the fact that you disagree with the fact that you're a big damian williams believer. I respect the fact that you have them in your dynasty team i do so i just don't like where he's going and look i get it i see i i try to be realistic and see both sides of it and just to speak two from my position. One andy reid i know he said he said committee but also over this off season. There was just praise heaped upon damien williams saying he's the guy he's he's going to have all the opportunities just now at this point. He just has to go out there and produce then he got hurt and as is often to happen in the n._f._l. When a player gets hurt and training camp and can't practice coaches do get frustrated but all signs still point damian moen's being the starter he was in preseason to he was out there for the entire. I drive then was put on ice because he's still being worked back in in as far as talent. I disagree with jason. I think damian williams is actually talented running back. He went undrafted for reasons. That had nothing to do with him. As a running back they were off off the field things and if you intelligent opportunity run through the rest of the roster damian williams is by far better running back especially in the system that kansas the city runs then carlos hyde and you have carlos hyde was the original reason why people were jumping off damien williams bandwagon over the off season and other talking about carlos. I might not even make this team. I like darwin tops. I think he is a good player but he still is a sixth round draft pick and he's a two hundred pound guy like he can't come in and be the beef that damian williams can it so that that i think is a safer and he's he's talking about is safety and that it makes sense. He drops in a._d._p. Because at the beginning of this offseason darwin thompson wasn't on the roster her the refrain from andy reid was not committee based it was it was damien williams now it's turn into committee and he had hurt his hamstring so the every little every little shot not over the last couple months has reduced my confidence level and damian williams having a consistent work load things go right for him and being on that offense is worth its it's weight in gold because even if he loses workload he still going to be productive. That's why this bust means to me i would i would love to take him in williams. You know after under the david montgomery chris carson devante freeman territory sure it did there's there's absolutely risk damian williams but just to go to your comp of of how you like chris carson more. I don't mind that i i really like chris carson for this year but in in my estimation of fantasy football realms the possibility damien williams can finish as top five running back. I don't think that chris carson can unless he sees this sees a huge bump up in his pass catching opportunity which can happen but but would be necessary for that too. Yes all right who wants to go next bus pick. I'll i'll go next with one. That might be a head scratcher at first because i'm throwing out kareem hunt as eight gigantic bus now you might say well. How can you bust he's in the eight zero points week. One right zero appoints week to keep them. Oh you're guaranteed. I can't here's why i wanted to bring them up. Though we were doing a live grab a real draft and kareem hunt was drafted in the eighth round and i was like what and then i went and i looked at a._d._p. And cream hunt is going in the eighth round and then we did a draft left yesterday and cream hunt went in a throne and all i want is i want the foot clan to know that you're not going to be part word of that. Partake irs in drafting kareem hunt and clogging your been you will not make and ruining it makes for milan informally banned from jason. I mean the game strategy of drafting. Kareem hunt is nonsensical. He's missing the first eight weeks plus a bi week okay so the first week you can possibly play. This player is week ten now. You're not gonna play him that week. Because you don't know what the role is barring okay nick trump trump got injured in week four and now you're just waiting barring that situation. You're talking about week eleven now and the only way you blame in week. Eleven evan is if in week ten he comes out and was super awesome but the reality is. He's a backup. Yes he when he comes back. He's a backup running back. What are you doing. Here's some guys that will help your team that are being drafted behind kareem hunt sammy watkins okay so whatever you want about the lizard king but he's he's. He's the king now. He's the man he took over the top seat. You want either show on the green bay wide receiver to ronald allison or n._b._s. Their dede westbrook. We've all of our my guy. Quarterbacks cam goff off russell wilson like these are valuable players not russell. Oh come on. Don't i guess we'll start about my hand. I'll all he is your i was about to say. I don't know how you don't read adrian peterson. I just want a p._s._a. Real yes kareem. Hunt is not going to help your team big big name big name who's up to a._d._p. Exactly don't draft him. Folk let other people clog your bench and not be able to make waiver wire moves 'cause they're holding onto a backup running back that they get to play in week eleven. They hope and that's one. That's a consensus bus for us as well in the draft. Get totally agree but you know mercifully. I was in a a mock draft yesterday twelfth round oh i mean. I think that that you want to take him but at least in the twelfth. I'm glad you bring that up them because this is one of those those things where it's like okay. If he's available at my last round i would never take a roster clog for that long don't and when he drops in value don't think ooh shiny if you already asked him. What do they do go train them. Nick saban sure if you log his bench lynch right. He's a landmine all right. Yeah mike you get to bring forth your great boss. Yes so i will qualify it. I was making making a joke. I would draft russell wilson before draft kareem hunt so you know but the but he's loves them but the bus i'm going with. Its unfortunately fortunately because i love the quarterback but it it is russell wilson and his a._d._p. Actually has gone down a full round over the last month and when i when i think that russell wilson's going to bust this is him busting compared to his a._d._p. I'm just talking about the range of outcomes russell wilson. The last year threw a touchdown on eight point two percent of his passes. That is an outrageous number before that his career his career touchdown percentage szenes was five point seven before last season last year that would have given him twenty six touchdowns putting him in the in the range of. Maybe you want to stream russell. Wilson sometimes is any finishes as the quarterback sixteen since the year two thousand there had been eight times. A quarterback has thrown the ball over one hundred fifty times and had that touchdown astound rate that unsustainable eight over eight percent touchdown rate the average drop for those quarterbacks. The following season has been three percent dropping down like that's a huge deal so like for russell's talk about russell from eight point two down five point two. That's a that's a really really a big difference for fantasy outcome employers in that list peyton manning. Tom brady aaron rodgers your tongue first ballot hall of fame quarterbacks having having these huge outlier years and then seeing the natural regression that just happens after a big season. He's not going to repeat being a perfect passer to tyler tyler lockett who is a deep threat lock. It's catch percentage went from sixty six percent to eighty one like this was a magic year for tyler lock and i'm not taking that away from him but lock it went from seasons of two touchdowns. One touchdown jumped all the way up to ten because the magic dust just happened to land upon russell wilson and tyler lockett last year. Russell wilson is fine if if people are letting him slide in the draft. I'm okay taking taking the shot on him but i just see massive massive regression coming to his passing touchdown volume sure he'll probably throw the ball a little bit more but that's not the the game plan for seattle. Would you rather i know i and we've heard it. We don't have to beat the ground. 'cause we talk through russell a little bit. You guys discussed right obviously jason you can you could get back at him here with your thoughts but would you take russell wilson or kyla murray <hes> because <hes>. I think that's an interesting situation tobacco. The twelfth round of america was in yesterday russell wilson's history and pedigree like i talked about this on the show. I felt like your thoughts and russel. Wilson are painting to to negative alight kinda like i thought jason was paying for matt ryan like you were both grading them at their basement as opposed to like the middle ground of like. Maybe he's not that good. Maybe he's not what he was last year but maybe he's not sixteen since he's never finished there. But who would you rather have in that situation. I think i'm gonna take cuyler. Things didn't look great in that game but i'm gonna take cuyler based off of what the offense with the coaching staff. They're saying they want that offense to be. They want it to run through. Cuyler and seattle doesn't want their offense to run through russell wilson. They wanted to run through carson and rashad penny. Yeah the the the only thing i would say is when peyton manning lost on his you know great numbers that fell down after his electric passing touchdown run yet but he could do a great a year what he yeah he had a great year but he couldn't just oh he adds one hundred fifty rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns because like on average russell so wilson has three rushing touchdowns per season zero zero okay. Let's say you take away four passing touchdowns three rushing touchdowns and fancy scoring. That's identical so i think russell will make it up. We've got a water on record <hes> through the wheel of water app <hes> so i think he's going to be top twelve quarterback. You don't both sides all right. Now i get to do this. I'm sorry my second bus pick again. It's it's an a._d._p. Adjustment it's a belief adjustment. It's it's a maybe a stifling of a._d._p. Rise as kerryon johnson. I'm sorry i'm sorry you should be. I know what that means to our relationship. I know what that means to your propensity to share your white castle with me. <hes> we're not gonna go for you but i want is actually great news. My my problem with kerry. Kerryon johnson is pretty similar to the one that are brought before but i want to talk about a few other things. I think he's going to high. I think this comes down to a lynn's problem for fantasy owners. They know how talented carry on johnson is when he's on the field and he's healthy and you get to watch him and i look at the age of twenty seventeen joe mixing a little bit with kerryon johnson this year where nobody doubts that joe mixon is one of the best pure talents and football. I don't doubt that kerryon johnson is one of the best pure talents in football. There's a reason he dropped in the n._f._l. Draft and that reason has to do with durability concerns. If you go back to the scouting reports that you look at when carry on was drafted his frame might not hold up he runs to upright he might not hold up to the the long haul. These are the same scouting reports that the lions had when they drafted carry on johnston didn't drop drop to the second round where he traded up to guess yes he he did drop from okay. He didn't drop he didn't get drafted in the first round not because of talent because durability talent in college was worthy of being a high. I shall draft picker. His durability knocked him down and it knocked him. Down and scouts is in high school. College left right shoulder sprain m._c. L. broken thumb while in college judge ribs hamstring ankle shoulder first season these untold versa yeah i season last year where he gets an opportunity doesn't hold up the team team isn't blind. The lens that they have is one where we need to use kerryon johnson in an appropriate fashion to avoid durability concerns. We've seen preseason so far the if there is a worse case scenario for kerryon johnson. That's what i believe. The worst case scenario is if you take what happened in preseason game one and apply it which obviously lisa carrying is going to be on the field and he's going to be a very good player on a very bad team in my opinion but if he doesn't get the third down work that gives him the pronounced target share that we want and and he doesn't get goal line because they believe in c. j. anderson on the goal line. You've got a player that is going to underwhelmed compared to a._d._p. Scouting report never avoiding the hits when remember darren mcfadden's durability concerns you runs a lot like darren mcfadden very upright running style so if it's all risk aversion when you talk about high draft picks and for me the risk is too high the lens that this team is looking at him through the other players that they picked up on the roster the fact that i don't believe they're going to have as many goalline line chances as other teams in football. I'm just concerned. Would you believe that i actually like your bus. Pick from a from a conversation nation peace no. I wouldn't believe that well. I think it's i think it is somewhat important because we talked about karen. I love karen when i said earlier that the that you have to opposite picks you have a player that i don't believe is talented and damian williams who has the best opportunity versus a player and carry on on johnson who i think is so unbelievably talented in a bad situation so i usually take opportunity over talent this year. I'm going with my guy carry-on. Honestly part of the reason i'm going with carry on is juju smith schuster. He was one of those guys that i just thought that talent was unbelievable. Ah yes and i didn't take him as my guy because the opportunity seemed a little bit nebulous and you weren't sure i am i'm buying into the talent and i think the talent will wind but your conversation here is important because if he doesn't get the passing working he doesn't get the goal line. There are risks to carry on even the kerryon johnson truth or knows does it now. Here's the question i have cured of both of those if he gets both of those hall going to white castle if if he gets done i'm also but the the question is damian williams and carry on johnson. They are going back to back right now. So you're on the clock. You have to draft one of those two you guys. Which one are you carrie johnson sr good. Yes thank you for putting it to be that way. I have to take on right. Which one do i take its carry on john. Oh so my bust to go. Yes i agree. We're giving it back. Look on johnson. He's a my guy christian kirke. He's a your guy yup. I believe christian kirk is a bust for where he's being drafted right now. He has been skyrocketing until this last week and he was up in the sixth round. Welcome welcome and on his way up. Sorry yeah but i don't see the <hes> look. I love the talent of chris kirk. I love the future of the cardinals in this offense but we have to be realistic as to the difference between cuyler murray being successful for fantasy because he is a a heavy rushing quarterback versus a rookie even a great rookie quarterback coming in what it does for the other offense of pieces around him because the truth is kyla. Murray is probably not going to put up enough stats in the passing game to support one breakout wide receiver so here's here's the example. Here's the data the i look at gay rookie quarterback's. They don't throw a lot of yards. There's only three you can't even throw a yard technically. Pick it up and throw it for a lot of yards. It's just an idea jason. You can't if we're all ideas. It's throw measurements minutes you could. I guess you could throw a yardstick. I am yes clearly still corrected in rookies. Do not throw you can't throw yards. Thank you thank you <hes>. There's only you know three quarterbacks in history that thrown for four thousand yards the peyton the great rookies the great pain. Manny comes out throws for thirty thirty seven hundred yards the vague look at vegas. What do they believe. Kyla murray is gonna do now. I'm taking over. I'm slamming the over okay but the caesar sports book. That's not trying to lose money had him listed at two thousand nine hundred and forty passing on that when it came out fan dole was at thirty one hundred passing your kin so you might not have a house so the reality here is that i don't believe the yardage sustain a breakout. You might believe in the player but you don't believe the opportunity and the passing yardage can mathematically add up that plus the passing touchdowns touchdowns. I mean baiter tied the all time record for twenty seven twenty seven last year so if he throws for thirty five hundred yards which would be great and twenty twenty five touchdowns which would be great for rookie. Those numbers are not good enough to have larry fitzgerald. A four wide receivers spread thing chris kirk breakout. I don't think we have to argue about artist. I don't because i think it just comes down to what you believe. Colin murray is going to do on the field with his with his arm. I don't i don't look too heavily at the history of rookie quarterback's. When you talk about what this offense is going to do and you know cam newton's rookie season. He threw for over four thousand yards. He's one of the twenty eleven last season you you don't get account baker but he was on pace for forty two hundred yards in his rookie. Season cuyler was more prolific passer. Any more efficient passer at oklahoma than baker mayfield was so if you believe here's here's what i i'll put this out there. He's my critics guy. If you don't believe carla murray can throw for four thousand yards this year. Let let christian pass you by. Let them go if you don't believe that that's in the realm of possibilities i do. I believe that this team defense is atrocious. I don't especially the first six weeks of the season. We haven't seen the offense. Kyla murray's a hyper accurate prolific passer. I believe he's a better passer coming in to the n._f._l. Then cam newton was but that team had to throw the football steve smith and company. I remember that debuted. Oh what is why was there that was that was awesome again. Cuyler can run cuyler kylo passer. I pat. It's not lamar jackson where you have eighteen design runs a game like lamar jackson. Does you're going to have high pass attempt totals in arizona because they're going to be coming from behind. He's not just he will run the football but he wants to pass the football for so if you don't believe he can if you think he's a three thousand yard passer you better stay as far from christian cookies. I have him down for three thousand eight hundred twelve yards so he's near that four thousand <hes> it's a great year and twenty four passing touchdowns but when you split put that with all the options including larry fitzgerald hall of famer who is obviously going to get his i mean that puts chris kirk for me. He's he's wide receiver forty eighty six right now. He's the seventh arm sorry. He's a seventh round pick in. He's basically identical to allen robinson and curtis samuel. I would take both of those guys. Do you have anything to weigh in. Mike or you just i. I lean on the side that i know you can't make the math add up in your head. Yeah that's been my problem when i go into the stats. Give kylie ten thousand dozen yards then we'll have oh. Let's find out how gook calum murray is now my q._b. One matching matt matt okay all right. You wanna timber my christian kirk. After i temporarily carry on you you get all the information here on this show you get both sides sides of every player and then you can actually say. I like this argument. I like this. Yes data better and make make wise decisions all right right that means. There's one bus remaining. There is mike's pick who took for me. It's james white <hes>. He and i hear a lot of people talking. They love james white love scooping them up in the middle of the draft. They think he's an excellent value there but here's my problem with james white and what happened last year he and he said entered his fifth year or you know he he entered his fifth year <hes> last year and he had a hundred and thirteen regular season carries he jumped up that that's the many carries he had total title he hit ninety four carries just last year he had coming into that season two regular season rushing touchdowns that jumped up to five five he had five in the season last year he had never seen more than eighty six targets in a season at one hundred twenty three last year this nugget from i'm good friend of the show scott barrett last year. Jane's white had a twenty one point four target's share of new england's passing attempts up into that point up into james white last last year. The highs for running back were james white fifteen point six percent before that kevin faulk at thirteen point eight before that shane marine twad at twelve point twelve point six for the patriots there yes for the target's share from tom brady. That's an outrageous jump james white who had had fifteen point six jumping up to twenty one point four it just it doesn't add up to me. His career fantasy finishes running back forty one twenty eight forty one eight. Everything went right on these things. Everything ran right. That's a hard one to say. Everything inning went right for white. That's my new slogan. Try it out look last year with birkhead in eight games. He was scoring thirteen p._r. We are points without birkhead that jumped up to twenty one points a game last year gains with sony thirteen of them had sixteen p._b._r. Points which is still good but but that's skyrockets to twenty three points when sony michelle's out he took advantage of his opportunity with birkhead missing time with sony missing time those two guys are still there car and now we are adding damian harris into the mix as well who can't catch the bouquet in catch the ball. I just don't see a world where james white seas anywhere near the same workload that he received last year. I'm not drafting james lead anywhere because miles sanders is always sitting there or lamar miller or better editor choices. I don't disagree with your argument at all to me. James white is in case of emergency break the glass and inside his james white in all circumstances like an amped damped julius allen who kept finding himself in situations in baltimore where there's another voice allen week 'cause. We don't have anybody else to throw so. I think if things go according to plan for the patriots what you're saying about white comes true. I think if things go away from what the patriots went to happen james white will find himself as the favourite wingman of yeah of tom brady so he's a more situational play where it's all man. This guy is hurt this week. This guy's out gordon suspended. We birkhead can't stay healthy. Sony michelle has had his own injury problems so there is there is a world where james white is is is the cheese and he's just standing alone in that backfield just him and damian harris as the only healthy guys and then he will return but i'm not i'm not going to draft the guy in the in the fifth round banking okay these these two other guys have to miss time in order for my pick the return value yeah if you look at the season totals for james white it's very very easy to make a positive narrative but when you do look at a game by game basis and what actually happened week seven when sony goes down and he only gets four carries then thin james white takes over for the next three games in that three game stretch when he had the opportunity just granted to him he had thirty carries in three games an thirty targets in those three games so it was insane and he meant a lot to fantasy owners and the reward for meaning a lot to fantasy owners is an average rap position where he is right now. It's kind of like thank you. We appreciate you. I'm gonna draft you and then you might feel really uncomfortable putting him into your lineup in week one yes. I agree with that but i'm going to have to if you're in a full p._r. League he's still going to be a guy that you can rely on for a number of catches each game similar to how a year after year after year you can play theo riddick. He's not great in real life. He's not great. <hes> you know for for for fantasy but he's serviceable. He plays a role. Oh and those i if he drops draft p._r. I would i would still look at him but he's not you know he was a top twelve guy and that's not who he is all right well. Those were our bus picks. We've still got a couple other shows brooks. How're you doing excellent. What other shows do we have coming up here. What are you gonna tease. Give me the <hes>. Give me the tease this this week.

Some kind of metal Mike is forging metal medallions for our listeners. So that's what's going on. I mean, a button became a buy button. I mean like one of those was Dicker with a sticker. It's it's a dog sticker. Yeah. Bolers lie dot com. Just reminds you. Let's get into the news. News and notes from around the league presented by sleeper. See that was so exciting. Oh, we were riding high for now. We gotta talk about tyreek hill. Let's quickly. I mainly. All right. Audio has been released. The case has been reopened against tyreek hill, he's not partaking in any team activities, and essentially we got word this morning via sleeper that it's very likely. He's added to the commissioners exemplified very soon as this investigation. Proceeds and we always talk about you know, when you don't know what a team's gonna do look at what their actual transactions are. And obviously in the draft their first pick the Kansas City Chiefs, I pick they went and drafted a tyreek hill comparible style of player saying that. That could be an indication that they do not expect to keep him. Why? And people want our opinion on this ever since the news broke give me a percentage chance to think tyreek hill plays football. Again. I would say it's about five percent and not with the chiefs. Again, I'll go maybe five to ten percent this year ongoing zero percent chance that he plays again. But it won't be for the chiefs. I think he'll get cut. He'll be on the exemplify he'll be gone for a couple years. And then some team will take a gamble in a risk. You know? I know I know we've seen it too many times these these teams when there's a young talented player. I mean, it's a shame. Yeah. It just it stinks. It stinks. Ultimately for tyreek hill the person what his decision making. And in those impacted the victims of this situation, his girlfriend the child we're just pray full that you know, they're in a safe situation. ESPN's Adam Schefter reporters real chance that Doug Baldwin will be unable. To continue playing and the Seattle Seahawks degree by drafting to I'd receivers. Yeah. All the jokes. We've been making over the last month or two when you weren't supposed to do this. They feel worse. Now, we're like he's he's he's gonna be a machine with jokes because he was going to come back right way football. And this this has not looking likely, so we'll talk through the ru- the wide receiver situation a little bit on the show today with the NFC winners and losers from the draft. There won't be an announcement soon because there are salary cap ramifications. And they said that Doug Baldwin himself will make that announcement not the team if he decides to retire. We know he's undergone multiple surgeries Assam season. It's not looking good. And the big man the big lefty Sebastian. Yes. He has retired sea bass swimming off into the night. I means there's only one player left from that draft class. Oh, really in the NFL. Is that Tom Brady is sure is Tom Brady has outlasted the mall. Wow. And this is a eighteen year. Retirement fertile Jankowski? So a reminder that was today's news notes brought to you by the sleeper app. Ask you Commissioner to move over to sleeper great platform for your dynasty league. Always improving guys. Let's get into it. We'll go win. All right NFC winners and losers were starting in the NFC west Brooks strategically weird rearranged our show docs this week. So that we had the opportunity to start with the NFC. And then I look in in our dock and we're starting with the NFC west. And then I say, wow, we're gonna start with the cardinals in the NFC west pure coincidence. No number one pick. They have a number one pack, and I guess winter me. Yeah. Arizona fans are excited and this was fares on fans for fantasy fans. This is a good draft. This is a draft. That means that the players the incumbents the existing players on this roster. David Johnson, Larry FitzGerald, these were players that last year was rough sledding bad offense mines bad personnel problems. Josh Rosen was traded Cuyler Murray goes number one overall they invest too high. Capital picks on wide receivers. They draft three wide receivers. Overall, India's Abella Akeem Butler who was if you remember the wide receiver show one of my favorites. And then Keyshawn Johnson. Guys. You gave yourself a brand new quarterback. You gave cliff Kingsbury the guy you wanted. And then you gave him a ton of weapons in this draft. Andy Isabella ran a four three one fastest wide receiver. Akeem Butler is a a dynamic outside playmaker. Winners and losers from this draft. I think all the offense of players and cardinals fantasy fans and cardinals fans in general were winners. Yeah. I think David Johnson is a huge winner. Here. You're you've got you've got a new offense of mind coming in. And clearly the team said we want to get playmakers. We wanna get people they could bus things open keep chains moving. And while it's not going to be all roses this year. You know, I've got him down for a good five win. It will be no rose. It will be no Rosen's either. Who is you might say. Big loser in this situation. Basically they traded Josh Rosen franey Isabella, right? And they traded a second wolf fifth rounder next year a man, but I mean, this is good news for David Johnson. Things will open up for him. You know, we've we've talked about in the past rushing quarterback slots open things up for the running back. So I mean, David Johnson should be, you know, one of those top picks in in the beginning of the first how do you feel about? Christian Kirk Kristen had a in. Okay. Rookie season got hurt. Larry Joe Christian Kirk really the only two threats on that office before this draft. And then you bring in Isabela Butler Johnson is would you classify Christian Kirk is a loser of this draft or a winner because the Kyla Murray, selection and the offense you you'd have to call him a loser from the fact that like his so me I know fantasy wise in that's because the air raid system now has the the weapons that needs to actually succeed. It's not force feed these two guys because they're the only two capable wide receivers on the team. So I think you have to downgrade Christian Kirk at least what his ceiling could be because I both both Isabela in Keene Butler in at least in my breakdown, our alpha level players these are guys that could be number one's on their team. Keen Butler six five over to twenty. He's a he's a beast of a man and. And so you can't say that Kirk is for sure gonna be the number one guy. It's a brand new system. It's a brand new quarterback. So he's he's he's pretty much at the grand floor with the otherwise, I will say this. He he's a winner Anna loser. Because you're right. His ceiling Ziva was but his draft cost is going to be nothing. Now when whenever a team comes in and draughts three rookie wide receivers. You're not going to say, Chris Chris the one, but there's a good chance here. The Chris Kirk is is the one as the, you know, the only veteran under the age of thirty four on the wrong. Other similarities to like, how you view drawn a milestone last year with the three income and rookies in Green Bay, and how you might view Christie Kirk this year and the three rookies coming in and Arizona, I think it's a fair fair points. Because it's it's a little bit different where we hadn't. We haven't seen. We had our in carton together. Right. Well, you hadn't seen a lot. Bring college fromm Geronimo. So Kim coming into the situation felt like the rookies could easily overtake him even in he might pin. You took the job. So Kirk is a little bit more established is what I'm saying than Allison was in that scenario. All right before we move onto the Rams, I will say this. We kind of come at it from three Engels with Arizona. We have our own personal fandom just being born raised out here cardinal fans. My own personal fandom has not been a Josh Rosen fan. I wasn't happy that we drafted him. You've heard me talk about it on the show. Then you have the fantasy perspective right and fantasy wise. I wasn't a Josh Rosen fan. But as a person he impressed me through this situation. I people don't know this. I thought I'd mention it after the trade. He was sent to the dolphins after he was traded. He still stayed out here in Phoenix participated in the charity of infra Larry FitzGerald softball game in the in the fans out here gave Miranda applauses. He left posted a really kind of funny nice, respectful classy video, and he was not complaining through this whole thing. I hope he has success in Miami. I really do. He I think this could be one of those win win wins for Rosen where he doesn't have to come in new week one. Like, it's fits magic down there. In Miami's gotta plan. They're gonna trust the process in Rosa can spend a little bit more time. You don't think Rosen ends up week one starter? No. I do not you think. Jason. I think he will. Yeah. Yeah. All right. Let's move onto the Rams. There is one big story line to talk about with Los Angeles in their draft. Obviously, we're focusing often players Jason knows what it is. And that would be. The fact that the Los Angeles Rams traded up to pick up at the very beginning of the third round. At the top of the third rail. Good one of Mike, and is I think favorite running back in the draft. Daryl Henderson out of Memphis. And if you are a Todd Gurley owner is impossible not to call this a loss. A loser situation for Todd Gurley coming out of the draft. Obviously, Malcolm Brown big loser. If he was the perceived handcuff but Todd Gurley this is some high draft capital insurance for an MVP level running back. How do you feel being you know, you you have girly in our dynasty league? Jason. Yes. Please talk about that. Look, I feel negative about it. The reality is, you know, we just say fuck about you, don't you don't wanna follow coachspeak coach saying all the great things about getting really the ball. What you wanna follow his transactions? What is the team doing with their money with their capital with their draft picks? And what they chose to do was bring back the backup, Malcolm Brown, and then trade up for a third rounder and grab another running back because they are going to probably Batman and Robin. This let me let me set that table a little bit more for you. They brought back Malcolm Brown. They matched an offer. He went out and was desired by another team in the ramp said, no, we can't possibly lose. You. They traded up in the third round. This was only their second pick in the draft. So this it was their third pick. They are is really Twardy. Needs title. They had a big need. Apparently that was over running back. Yeah. Don't say big knee because that's different thing. Here's the thing. We just put up our dynasty rankings rookie rankings. It is very difficult. No matter what side of the fence, you're on with girlies. Hell it's super difficult to rank him in dynasty formats right now. Yes. Because you just don't know what's true. And what's false. I was staring down, you know. And maybe no more now or maybe they're just insuring themselves with a more dynamic player. It pass catcher in Henderson incase. Girly goes down. I was staring down girly and Joe mix and my dynasty rankings. Just going can I really move girly below mix. And I couldn't do it. But I know Andy you did do it. It was it was I think girlies at seven in my dynasty runningback rankings. And there is a difference. So fantasy owners here's here's the two scenarios that I see for Todd girl, you guys tell me if you agree scenario. One is Todd Gurley isn't bad. Back to full health and won't get back to full health, and we'll play a platoon role. The other situation is simply that toddler is. Now, a higher injury risk in general, but is back to full health will be the lead dog and they needed to invest in a running back because of the risk. I leaned that direction. The that he will be back. He will be back to who. He was but millions of dollars wallets of their owners. That's true. What's crazy about that for fantasy? And this. I'm talking redraft when you're sitting there pick number three and Todd Gurley is there, and you actually have hesitance about drafting him. And I I won't blame you at all. That's going to be a very difficult thing to call your shot say, Yep. Todd girlies fine. He's going to get all those Golan carries yet again, especially when they added Daryl Henderson, he's re people. Darrell Henderson is really really good pleased draft as late as you can. Redrafting if there was ever situation, you where you need more information for as long as you can this is it. Existing receiving core wasn't affected. They didn't take any white outs in this draft didn't need to know. They don't Cooper cop. Coming back. Robber was Brandin cooks. All right. Let's move onto the forty Niners. The forty Niners spent the first pick Nick Bosa and then went wide receiver wide receiver in the second and third rounds top of each round on deebo Samuel and then. Yeah. Deebo Samuel Jalen Hurd. Those are two really good wide receivers. And yeah, I go ahead. Keep in mind deebo Samuel was the third wide receiver taken in the draft. They could've they had their pick of just about anyone out there. And they saw what a lot of people say C, which is debate does evoke great player. I mean, that's more draft capital spent here than what they spent on Dante Pettis. So the the question is is negative for Dante Pettus is negative from Archies Goodwin. Certainly Markey's Goodwin agreed has gone from fringe relevance to probably irrelevance at this point. Deebo Samuel is a good wind out. We neglected him in our rookie show. He was in our show, doc, we just time it time. We ended up. I think talking about Isabel at the end and talk about deebo lot of people projected depot to go well below guys like de que Metcalf. The went way after him. But I know he's he's a favorite of many Jalen Hurd is much. He played in the slot ton in college. He also played running back only played one year wide receiver. There's a there's some opinion that I've read about heard being used in a kind of Cordeiro Patterson type of role in this offense, so kick returner one. No, no. I mean gadget player. I mean. We're it's just funny. When I hear people use that conflict. Well, it may not work out. Very well for cordray will not I'm not talking early career Cordeiro are I'm talking about last year with the patriots where he had the opportunity to take hand-offs to take little this. And that so. I believe that Dante Petters elite talent, and there's always a balance between putting more talent on a team and taking away from Pettus. I think it comes down to what is the confidence level that Jimmy Garoppolo and the team hasn't Dante Pettus. And if you believe let's let's subsitute, right? Like, if I don't know the giants when they had Dell had drafted deebo Samuel, Jalen Hurd, you wouldn't think twice about no not at all. Because a great talent demands. Great targets the this. It's very similar to. Excuse me, it Tricia Kirk. I mean, Chris Kirk was the second round pick last year showed enough on to the team on film. Like this is a good player. He's going to be able to do things. He's interesting fantasy. And then the team just came in and replenished the the war chest with wide receiver. So and I saw that as it's a negative for Christian Kirk this team to me, this is a negative to Dante Pettus the team could be better. But you for me, I'm moving down a couple of minutes not to say that can't succeed. I think he has to succeed. I think he will succeed, but the opportunity he has now is more difficult. But then he'll he'll be the one. He would have been the one before the drafting is the one after the draft. That's the only part to me that I'm if he's on the field the same. You have some town more talent around him. But he didn't he's not losing his wide receiver one spot. I think the big the biggest winner in the whole situation Jimmy Garoppolo Jimmy gras because. Yes. Sammy Jalen her? Yeah. That's where we need to focus or good players. And maybe it doesn't happen year one and in their rookie year, but you know, future wise, I think Jimmy Garoppolo has some great weapons Kyle Shanahan there. I I really like San Francisco did as far as you know, you get the elite pass and then you focus on your offense. Would you move Jimmy geo based on this draft? Because if there's one thing that we haven't had any clarity on. And maybe that's starting to drip over into wide receivers. We don't know of its memory jerk. Mckinnon or Tevin Coleman shirt, we might not know of his deebo. Samuel Dante Pettis Jalen her marquees Goodwin or George Kittle. But we know it's. Dynasty, all move him up. But short term. I mean, these are still rookies. So I'm not gonna go crazy for the handsome one before we move off the team, though, we got you know, how old that punter is Mitch was now skied. No, I I am not aware of the punter selected four three fourth row selection. Always in Utah. Oh, no. He went on his mission. He's probably twenty. He's twenty seven years old. And he got drafted Mitch. You're my hero for telling me we can go back can we enter Brooks twenty seven was a bit ago. Now, look I can put up I can punt the ball at least fifteen yards. Jason was our punter on our flag team as I was is it third. He got up to thirty yards. With a forward. Roll nice for some shakes. Thanks more six Jason more. I don't give a catchable ball. All right. Let's talk about this is. Let's talk about the Seattle Seahawks winners and losers from this draft main their weight room, the big winter, decay Metcalf, and Gary Jennings junior to white outs drafted in the third or sorry. The very end of the second round for Metcalf and the middle of the fourth round for Gary Jennings out of West Virginia. They also drafted a running back. Did they not in the six round? But who who are the winners and losers on the Seahawks? I mean word I think we do disagree about this the way that we were seeing the rookie drafts. Go I think Metcalf was loser. As far as rookie selections going to low volume passing team. They there are run first team Schottenheimer. We've we've covered this ad nauseam. I think it was a not the best landing spot for what Metcalf could have become an what everyone wanted to what what? The draft Twitter wanted him to become. Yeah. We're going to disagree their dog because I think while he dropped, and that's not good for your your capital. I can't imagine. It's Randy over here. I can't imagine a much better landing spot because Deka Metcalf. I don't I don't see him being one hundred reception type player if he if he pans out, you know, one of those guys it's getting one hundred fifty sixty targets. He he's not a possession guy. He's a deep threat. An amazing talent what he can do. And so, you know, that's where I think you've got a player who's matching up perfect with Russell Wilson. You saw how valuable on low target volume. Tyler Boyd was if you're running around buying time. I can't imagine a better target to throw it over the mountains to than than decay Metcalf. So touchdown lies. I think that's where decays fancy values gonna come. And I think he matched up well to go to team more. Might be losing Doug Baldwin. I don't have the same opinion of Metcalf as I would have if this Baldwin news income out. I think I think it matters. Punt and you have a situation here with with Hollywood Brown with AJ Brown with decay mccafe's where low pass offenses drafted some of the best talent. Yeah. At the wide receiver position. So you would you take decay Metcalf over a J Brown? I would would you take Metcalf over Markey's Brown? I would so in that situation with what's going on with with Russell Wilson. I think you have opportunity I think it obviously helps Russell Wilson to have been given a couple more weapons. But you're right. There were probably there were other homes that he could onto that would've made you happier. We just say, I don't know. We haven't really discussed this. But I feel like as a whole not for every player out there. But if you just take the masses of the rookies that were drafted this draft really sucked for them. Yes. Like. All the players that I thought had a real chance break they went to just piss poor situations where it's like that's really not where I want him going and everybody I didn't like was like, oh, no. That's a really good spot. Yeah. Look at you. David montgomery. Yeah. It'll be very interesting because you know, like, I don't know if there's as much excitement around rookie dress. I mean, we did two of them today into a remainder leagues. We started them. There's a sense that there are couple of names to kill Harry and Josh Jacobs that you're kind of sure about what's going on. But then there's this muddied middle where you know, guys will emerge, but there's just not a lot to go on. Yeah. I have Kyla Murray rings very high in my for rookie drafts in generally speaking that does not happen with with a quarterback because guys are just in such bad situations. All right. It's time to move onto the NFC east. Brooks your Cowboys. Cowboys didn't do a lot on the office of side of the ball at all a couple of handcuffs. Tony Pollard at a Memphis running back and seventh-round running back as well. What's funny is gonna be the winners are are Michael Galvin Randall Cobb because you have invested third fourth fifth round pick on a wide receiver to compete on the outside with Amari Cooper Gallup in Cobb didn't do it. So like for instance, if this is if if the Cowboys drafted Andy Isabella Raina com is is looking troubled. So. I was gonna say what's funny is I like, Mike Weber more. The like their seventh round running back more than Tony Pollard. Like that'll be very interesting to see who actually ends up as Ezekiel's direct. Hang rectal handcuffing, his backup. I mean draft capital says that things are very very against Weber from Ohio State. But that's that's who I think it is right now and Pollard. He's everything I've seen about him is he's actually kick return. He's gonna immediately be are starting kick returner. It seems like that's what they drafted him for. Yeah. I mean, you know, the handcuff I'm not worried in redraft league. No. But we're talking rookie drafts. Like that's important for for you to have if you have Zeke in the way that the Cowboys around rookie pick. Yeah. You just get you'd wanna be targeting the I would. And would you go so far as to say, you believe Weber will be that guy? Right. I do think he will be. All right. The New York Giants the football giants. The Daniel Jones giants look. Hey. There was den teams that wanted Daniel Joe, it's me Dave look Daniel head. Did you have to see the meaning three years me? Dave. Yeah. That was great to Dave got him in talking about the fact that they could take the model of him sitting three years. Do they know how old the manning is? Here's the funny thing is somebody said, the Daniel Jones looks exactly like such a good tweets actually, like a person cast to play lamenting in a movie. Yes. It's so good. And so Dana Jones goes number six. I don't blame. I get them. Get a lot of crap. Yeah. But if that's actually the guy that you want, and you think it's your franchise trade down. No. Because somebody could I mean, look if you act deemed if you actually believe it you have to take that guy. I don't I don't blame him for that. I blame for scouting. I don't agree that he's the guy. Well, but he's also a relevant. I think he plays the second half of this year. I do because we'll be winless at that point. Right. Exactly. But for fantasy purposes he's Brooks put in Daniel Jones's agent as a winner from the draft sterling shepherd is a winner from the drag. Yeah, you know, you had how many picks in this draft three first rounders to fifth rounders, and you didn't invest in a wide receiver until the fifth. Frown Shepard got paid. And now he didn't get. The supplanted by any of that top in talent. You could argue the same for Evan Ingram. You know, the the fact that the splits with everything room with and without Oto Beckham have been really good for him. My my worry here Tate. Actually, I do think that Daniel Jones gets on the field. So I'm not I'm not I'm not ever worried too much about second half the season. When I'm in a redraft. I'm looking much more how we're gonna get out of the gate, but if Daniel Jones comes in it's it's to me for sure bad for all pass catcher. So I don't see this is a pure win for sterling shepherd and Evan Ingraham. If it turns out that their team is worse. And then they get a rookie quarterback midway through the season. Now Brooks if you if you were playing ally like you plan this year as your dynasty starter. He's a loser in this draft as well. Okay. Dang it. Yeah. All right. So excited to play them. I'm excited. Talk about the Philadelphia Eagles because despite having only five picks in this draft. There's a lot of fantasy implication, just second round mile Sanders. Penn State running back one of the highest recruited running backs as he headed independence day was the backup saquon. Mile Sanders in the second round says we're not going to rest on the Jordan Howard, fifth round exchange were looking for a three down guy for multiple years mile Sanders. And then in the later of what four picks later, they traded up for JJ or Sega Whiteside, sir. Wide receiver out of Stanford. Makes Carson Winston winner to me you get you Hartson wins a couple of weapons. Mile Sanders lanes in pretty good home. I mean, look the first pick you take a one of the best pass blocking offense of taxes in the draft. The second pick you draft a running back that can catch passes at Penn State. The third pick you draft Sega Genesis. And you got another great weapon who's kind of canal, Sean Jeffrey comp in the jump ball. Touchdown tight type of player. And so I think Carson Wentz is a is a huge winner in this draft out. That was when I was watching the draft every pick. I just kept thinking, man. That's that's good for wins. Oh, that's good for once. Yeah. I don't disagree. Jordan Howard was a loser for fantasy owners that you bought into him being traded to Philly the way I would break down right now is and I'm I one of my nice Elise. Jordan Howard, owner drafted mile Sanders with the third pick in the rookie draft today. And I know in my heart that this. This is gonna suck because mile Sanders. I think we'll see a lot of work. And I think Jordan Howard will steal a lot of touchdowns. And I think I'm gonna be displeased. Now, it's very possible. Jordan Howard, m is he in the final year of his deal. Yes. So this is a rent. That's a situation where this is why I rank mile Sanders ahead of David Montgomery, which I know you guys are the opposite. But I one of the reasons is I feel like the Philly offense. Doug Peterson Carson Wentz starting next year's mile Sanders. Mile Sanders could have earned himself very strong three down role. Do you disagree with that possibility? I disagree with the possibility of three down in the sense that they're such a committee, and they're so committed to not using one single back. But I think they could work themselves down to being to backs, and, you know, this is more than Dighton in my view of and you knew this before the draft and before they got Jordan Howard how much they wanted to upgrade their running. Position they were not happy with the Corey Clement window Smallwood Josh Adams, trifecta of guys off the street. They said we've got you know, they didn't trade much for Jordan Howard, who's a quality running back. And then they use the capital that they had to grab another quality running back. I I think the offense is better. But I think it's gonna be a to me and show to there'd be an upgrade though. Yes. The problem with the eagles has been three four guys at the same time. Yeah. I think that's why they invested in Sanders specifically because he has a more diverse skillset than other guys that they've had slotted in. And like you said last year was tough to watch Clement never did it. Josh Adams, flashed me little bits here. And there let's talk about the Redskins. The Redskins grabbed Dwayne Haskins at fifteen the grab a wide receiver. Mclaren at the twelfth pick of the third round. Another running back Bryce love in the fourth round who they expect to be backed by middle of training camp. Bryce love bracelet. Probably. Have gone gone a year ago. Second rails Eck in bro. Yeah. You heard himself staying at school. Well, grade school kids, you're hurting yourself. Yeah. Exactly. This is. Interesting to me that they have dairy guys who they I mean, they invested very very highly Darius guys, and I know he got hurt. But your plan is okay. Let's let's make sure we have insurance for our hurt guy with the Hertz value value. The reality is the insurance for near his guys Adrian Peterson the insurance for critter Thompson, the injured guy was the injured guy. So they've got three injured guys. Eighty three inch Guidi guys equal one healthy. Right. Ski- smart move. You just voltron. Here's the truth though. This is not to me, you try to read the tea leaves here. Fourth-round early fourth round pick on Bryce love. It just goes to reinforce the the the news the percolating. Rumors of dairies Geis's, very slow development back from injury. Only a few days ago. You got another report that he is moving slowly through this. This is why what if they done. Here's their confidence level in various guises return for fantasy owners let's pay Adrian Peterson. Let's draft Bryce love in the fourth round. That's all we have. So I would not be enthusiastic for this offense one that is currently led by some either Haskins or keenum or Cole McCoy with three different running backs with a myriad of kind of wide receivers. We don't know who's gonna emerge. This offense is going to struggle. That is my concern. Yeah. I'm not. I'm not I'm not happy. Who's the the losers? Washington Redskins for for the immediate future. Tosh Johnston over the long run. You know, if doing Haskins pans out. Out if you know, he's the guy and Geiss gets healthy and Bryce love gets healthy. And you could have something down the line. I didn't love what they did at wide receiver. They needed help drafted one. But not now your favorite not in my top fifteen. Who starts week one for Washington. Quarterback keenum punter, Mike. I don't know maybe maybe running back. There's a lot of questions for any ball team who starts quarterback Haskins. Who did you say J? I said keenum break tie good McCoy, Dwayne Haskins joined Haskins playing for his life gruden's plan for his life. Yes. All right. The bears the bears only at five picks in this draft. But we got to talk about here, boys. David montgomery. None of us were huge Montgomery fans. I am now. Third round. I've said this so many times before I will take opportunity over talent one hundred out of one hundred times. And that's not say, David, Montgomery isn't talented. But just right before the draft. I talked about I don't see what a lot of other people. See, I know he's well rounded it can do a little bit of everything a lot of had in my notes that if a team were to invest heavily in him. I think he would be great. And I don't think team's going to do that team did that because similar what you bringing up with you know, other teams trading up, and they didn't have. Their first pick though, the bears were they had interview. After interview after interview with all the running next multiple interviews with the same guys, they clearly were showing their hands at they were looking at a running back except they didn't have enough picks. Like, they didn't have they had. So few picks in the draft that I did not think they were going to be able to do it. And then they used extra to trade up to get David Montgomery who has then been given the Kareem hunt comp by Nagy who used cream hunt as a well rounded back, and I think I think Montgomery comes in right off the bat with two hundred and fifty touches. And is the main it doesn't matter what we think about them before if Matt Nagy thinks, he's everything exactly. And that's. Yeah. No. He has a great opportunity in Chicago. You know, they jettison. Jordan Howard, wasn't a fit David Montgomery. They feel like is a fit current regime. Mike Davis that was phone. The big loser. Malcolm Brown, those of your offseason losers. Those those guys on that fringe, right? Chris Warren member when we talked about Kris Warren in Oakland. I tried to forget about it one. Isaiah Crowell and one Josh Jacobs later and Chris Warren, don't even just drop. Yeah. Well, if you're in a super deep dynasty league, also drop it. You know, what I'm gonna do? Oh, you you've got him on your team. I'm gonna drop them on air. Oh, guess lot. Warren debt is a rage drop because you can't even pick an right? That's right. I'm gonna take care of that. Ok picking up Chris Morin. Go ahead. But no, that's the reality of the draft. If you if you are investing in a low, I mean, this white wideouts to, you know, Jake Coomer, oh, all the dynasty rage. But if Green Bay drafted three or four White House that you wouldn't have drive capital matters. That's why it was incredibly sad to see two of my lower to your back that I liked I knew it was I knew it was tougher for them. But Alex Barnes and air booby Williams were both undrafted. I just bro. I do want to confirm that. I just verified he did. In fact, drop Chris Warren, he has been dropped. I have cannot leave Kaga that asking the question that maybe should have kind of been part of the Gumri discussion to begin with. Toroc right. What happens to Cohen because Cohen had this seemingly big opportunity. Jason you just said David Montgomery has two hundred fifty touches those do not compute. I think I think they I think they can't compute. I mean, I I actually started them out already. And if you look Tariq is not a guy who gets a ton of carries. And so he's the guy that's going to be getting you know, a hundred hundred and fifty carries and then used in the passing game. I think he'll be about what he was last year which was serviceable at times disappointing at times. But I do think David Montgomery will be the predominant guy in the timeshare. Yeah. I agree code will be okay. But. Montgomery is gonna be great. All right. Let's talk about the Detroit Lions use their first round pick. Right. Where I thought they would TJ hockey. And by the way, we didn't even update that note. Nothing nothing to look yet. He see here. I actually won are our rookie predictions. I have four correct. You guys had to each. So if you add your scores up together you tied me. Yeah. That was only on the back of Dave Gettleman. I hope you're happy with yourself. It's me if Dave Gettleman had drafted Josh Allen, clearly who should have drafted a number six, then TJ hawks would have gone to the Jags at seven where I am going. But then they're like sin. Allen's here sim butts Candian. So we're tied at three and three in my world. Right. Yeah. Your world is always very Jason favored. Yes. It is teaching hawk consent to Detroit o. It was breaking news about that. He's expected to be the started week one. Yeah. He is the number of NFL draft expected to be used right off the bat. You know, even that needs tighthead. That's good. He good blocker. And such a good pass catcher who will be an immediate weapon on an offense that needs them. He will also be an an asset to carry on Johnson. Who I think is another winner in this graph? It's a great blocking tight end. And didn't have another running back drafted the year of carry on get ready. Wow. A year prepare yourselves. Okay. All right Perry on about my guys. Don't you do? Oh, dude. It's Andy's guide. I heard it even Brooks. I would look Jesse James who was an offseason pickup. That's he's a big loser. In detroit. Otherwise, you know, you could make the argument that they didn't do a lot else to to address the passing game. Bohol concern is a big one and from a dynasty perspective. I think he's a very valuable. He's tied in dynasty. He's already talked to twenty. Yeah. I I have like eight or nine. Yeah. You you could argue Marvin Jones is a winner here because getting out there on on used early capital on one of these water Cevers he could start looking like he's being shown the door. All right. Let's get to Green Bay Green Bay. Well, not a lot to look at. They did spend a third round pick. They were one of the teams rumored to need a tight end. Maybe in the know Olea sweepstakes needed one last year. And they got Mary Steenburgen is who it was. Hand that Jay Stein doing that to jas. Tell him Steiner is Steinbrenner member the owner of the third round pick out jas stern burger, do we think that he will have some relevance running back. Dexter williams. Also drafted in the six round stern burger will not this year. But I think Sternberg is a good player, and he'll be Toby serviceable. Yeah. Once they realized that Jimmy Graham, just let him off to pasture. I think they realize that I think that's why they were. So I mean between Hogson and Fant they most mock dress had them taking tight end because they completely realized they realized that I mean, they Jimmy Graham is not the answer at tight in. And they need an answer. You're right to point out that you know, it's going to take a couple years for stern burger he's not he's not gonna come in rookie or Donald burger. And so yeah. But in a dynasty league, whatever I think, you know, he'll be in the third row. Round, you know, a late guy that I think you could hold onto stash for couple years starnberger will start next year. Jimmy Graham will be going. I can only hope for the what a burger nickname. I want that in their how what a what a catch. What a burger come on. Okay. What? It's there. We'll work through. Yeah. We've got time. We gotta wait until he claimed broil. Yeah. Yes. To earn. It like Disney did. Oh, goodness. Big montana. He came out of nowhere got himself nickname. That's all I'm saying. All right. If your name is Ron Wilson Marquez Valdez scaling echinacea Brown. They didn't go get another big wide receiver. I was surprised the robber -tunities for Green Bay to do that. And they didn't. And the reason they did not do that is because they're fine there. I mean, they they've got a good up and coming core of wide receivers. I think that the the biggest winner to me of those up and coming players is going to be drama, Alison, I leave. He's very talented. He's got a great report there in Rogers Aaron Rodgers loves them. He was off to hot start in the beginning of last year with him until the injury. They didn't go out and replace any of the wide receivers. So all of them all of them are big winners in this year's draft because they get another year with Rogers to step into the offense. But I think Allison's guy I'm most excited about I the Minnesota Vikings sound the alarms. Colorado's time may become into a close. It irv. Smith junior second round tight end draft at I Alabama by the Vikings. That's kind of the headline there. There was they did draft. Alexander Alexander, Madison. This is in this is legit he handcuffed for cook. This this is something you need to pay attention to if I have Dalvand cook who is thus far showed himself very prone to getting hurt. Alex Alexander Madison would be a primary target for me. I would expect you don't have to pay a huge price for him. But back in the second round, you're gonna wanna think about it. He's he's from Boise state. I really liked them. I really really liked Madison. He won me over by the end because he can do everything. And I think that he's one of those just super tough dudes who if given the if Delvin cook went down, Alex, everyone would freak out for Alexander, Madison. So just make sure. Sure, you're prepared. I would I would throw out that he could he could have relevance. He's not just strictly hand Latinas Murray had relevance there. Even when Delvin cook was there. So he you know, if they timeshare at all or use him, you know around the goal line. I don't expect them. I don't expect him to be a star certainly not with cook. But he could be relevant. He's one of those guys you could draft as a handcuff because he could be an option in your flex later. But I think the big winner here in Minnesota's clearly Kirk cousins you spend your first four picks on offense. You get a center you get a guard. And you get a tight end protecting the line and the tight end in Smith is a great downfield weapon. If he gets spend all that money on those wideouts better have a quarterback that's upright to throat to them Atlanta. Let's talk about Atlanta. They interesting draft. Matt Ryan looks like a winner for the same reason. Kirk cousins is guard tackle I two picks in the first round in the first round. Yeah. You could also say devante Freeman winner. No high investment on another running back. You got ITO Smith and devante Freeman. It will be it will be Freeman ITO Smith. And these are some good lime in in my opinion that they drafted this is a huge huge sign of confidence in. Devante Freeman by the Atlanta Falcons. So I I'm not necessarily gonna move Freeman up. But just solidifies take it breath solidifies the offseason feelings of that the team is already fully invested him. They don't need to move L move on. And they're not I ring Quadri Alison running back taking he gives me a little bit of pause from calling Ito's Smith a winner because he could come in and like ITO Smith. I mean, make no mistake. He could be okay. But he sucked. He was terrible last year. He was very big this point for the falcons that go out and draft the running back. I mean, you need it to for depth. But my point is believe he can come in and just win that job and be the backup. So I. I don't see this as a huge win for ITO. But definitely devante Freeman. And Matt Ryan, I mean, I know we've had some arguments over where Matt Ryan should finish. But so far the last couple of weeks have gone really well for him with the schedule coming out the domes that he's playing in. Now, the offensive line two first rounders on the offensive line, which was very necessary. Those things are just good for the whole offense. The Carolina Panthers winners and losers to me. The big winners on this roster DJ Morin, courtesy mule, courtesy emails probably the biggest winner of the mall because he has an opportunity to stay at the wide receiver to position. And he is a very explosive player in limited touches, courtesy him fantasy relevance last year. I think he may be one of those sleeper type of guys it ends up in our ultimate draft yet. Because. Someone has to catch the ball. They're Devin funchess is gone and can't just be Christian McCaffrey. And if you just DJ more you'd better move him up rankings because more Samuel McCaffrey that's going to be their offense. No, I I agree completely Samuel is a great sleeper option. I would if you're out there. Go try trait from in six I think a lot of people even the have Samuel don't realize how good he was last year, which was essentially his rookie year, if he becomes the one I wouldn't wouldn't expect that, but I certainly would not be surprised if he becomes a primary target as opposed EJ more last season. He had five touchdowns five hundred dollars saving on forty receptions, and has a an opportunity to level up and hold courtesy Mulas twelve. Is twenty two years old possible DJ Morris twenty two years old? So they've got to was it August the DJ Moore's older now he's not here to San moulder by half year. But I mean, you've got to super young studs in. If if. You know, if Cam Newton comes back with a with a shoulder in place, then there's an opportunity there. He is. He can turn turns Mets they aren't grabbed just undrafted. Real quick Elisa Holyfield from Georgia who is the son of Vander Holyfield is a son or is he I think he was like nephew or something. No, look, oh is it. Oh, is it? Okay. I did not realize who son must be a good punter. Your fish yourself, man. Just be a running back news. Got a good stuff. Are there? Actually did watch. No, no, Joe when when I was watching him I was watching for that. And he does he like punches with. I'm not even joking. He liked punches his stiff arm out, and I'd like this legal. No toke. It is for him. Yeah. All right. The New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints only had five picks in this draft five. They did invest in a center they had to yes, they had to price retirement. So they did grab a center and Eric McCoy I would say the existing wide receiver core the people there they're winners. I don't know if do breezes a winner in this draft because I felt like they needed some help at the wide receiver position outside of Michael Thomas. You're gonna have to see I mean trick on Smith their counting on try taking a Ted Ginn. Yeah. He's still there. All right. Tampa Bay moving onto Tampa Bay. This was an interesting draft because it was entirely on defense, which has a lot of big winners. Fantasy a lot the fact that they did not at a bunch of wide receivers or quality running backs to this team says that guys like Chris Godwin huge winner here. They're saying we believe in you. Justin Watson you guys can get the job done yet. Another sleeper candidate Justin wants vacated a lot of targets with Humphries leaving with Sean Jackson leaving. And then look I know I've never been a fan of Ronald Jones, but they believe Ronald Jones payment Barbara can get the job done. Now. I'm gonna think it's Peyton barber. But the opportunity for Ronald Jones to step up is certainly there. Now, it is also important to note they drafted yet another place kicker. So the Aguayo days are over man, but they did spend a fifth round pick on Matt gave out of Utah. So these kickers if you go to Utah, and your kicker supplies to old is this guy thirty five you know, that this thing if he's twenty seven to twenty seven year old kickers. Drafted. I didn't know about this. When I was young. Extra five years refined your skills before you have to graduate, no age, given no problem Ford in his forty forty five. Okay. Yes. Still for rookie. I just talked about courtesy mule going into your threes. Twenty two years old winners and losers us actually market price. That's is a okay we talked about it wants Godwin Ronald Jones pain barber as well. Yes. And that does it for the NFC guys anybody. I'm forgetting anything you want to mention before we move on linen. For nets. Big winner. We haven't gone into that on Thursday. We will also announce the winners. We will announce the winners of our big giveaway the ultimate draft kit dot com giveaway. We had a preorder special. We were doing and we have the names of the winners will be announced on Thursday. So hang tight. You might see those on social media might hear your name pity.

Hopefully, we'll get some. NHL NBA vaccine is well yet. As he mentioned there, he has a. he went to the University of Miami. He re where reborn reborn down here Miami. No I was born wherever. University of Miami student was born not island. Of any. What better than that but I was up I, was born out on long. Island I always knew that I wanted to be involved in a big athletic program in you be involved in sports, and probably what working at sports I visited Syracuse University, and then I did a little research, realizing that they'd had about forty days of Sun throughout the year. I'm exaggerating and then I went down to Miami a little bit after that and loved. It got couple of Scotsman Scholarship. Money got a little early admission had a job lined up. Before? He got down there so I I was. I, was pretty set and everything just line for me. I am today because of where I guess. I was Ami and the opportunities. That I got there so again I want to talk to him about that. I'm sure he dan. Lebatardshow went to the University of Miami so I'm sure they're stories there. I WanNa talk about sports, betting and horse betting. I have become an horse. degenerate outta boy during this. Pandemic now I feel like I'm okay financially because I haven't been going out till you know restaurants and bars lot for the money, I've been saving there I've been just hemorrhaging into sports betting gas money as well. You're not spending that it's all it's all a give and take you save in someplace. You spend it in another so before we do a deep dive on the ponies. They got a few questions about working for College Game Day when I take was in town in Miami for the Super Bowl. We would show up to our Cleveland Studio and there was a whole spread every morning for i. take something that we don't get for our show. Obviously, because it's just a little show, but I'm curious I feel like college. You mean. Gone over news cafe and bring all. Four knew exactly. fusible. That's huge. That's got to change, but so I'm just curious. College Game Day and I take two of the cadillacs shows of ESPN so I'm have to imagine every Saturday. There's a hell of a spread for you guys. And what does that spread like, but we like to do is find like a classic local place and we'll we'll. We'll just order eggs egg whites. Your typical like breakfast buffet. Staple Bacon Sausage Apple Pancakes Fruit Yogurt Richard just just some. Stuff like that juice. You're living at College Game Day life. You're just like. Oh, just this spreads eggs bacon I'd have. A lot of times when you get to November thirtieth, and you're in Minneapolis Minnesota and it's snowing in. It's about nine degrees outside a year you get you get pull up to the to the office and you walk in, and you see the stars go in, and you see steam rising sea, the foil on top of the The Tin Pans. It's like aw, yes, I'm about to go in there I just absolutely killed whites. Now there's. Is there a better job and ESPN than your job on game though no. That's what I was just like. It seems so cool lake now your producer. What's your title on College Game Day. Research producer even though I don't even know what you have anymore. I'm just the bear I just I'm just a sports fan. I love my job whether it's cracking numbers whether it's spitting out ridiculous. Betting advice whether it's talking to you in a column. Whatever it is I do it up in small him facing happy now. Do you have a most memorable behind the scenes story of like a Celebrity Game Day? Picker like they're running late. The producer nervous that they're going to say something like just like when I say to you. Most memorable guests picker on College Game Day. What do you go to Katy? Perry was the most memorable one, because just the skit, and all of the props in it. She had for her for her stint with was great her up. I don't know if it was her manager or. Someone on her on business, but boy was an ole. Miss Grad so they. They coached her up on all the all messed up, so she was great. I think Bill Murray nearly hitting the head with a golf ball after putting the the flaming sphere and Thrown that are the ground. That was a good one I don't know. I. Think Maybe Brian Wilson was someone who might have been a little worried about like Who What what what? What is he going to say here? has there ever been worried about someone running late or not going to show up, so it's like what are we going to do? If person backup, there was one. Instance that I remember that we were we were could sit was install water. rickie Fowler was going to be the guest speaker, and there was an ice storm in the area, and like planes were delayed couldn't land for a while, and also I think we had I think we might have had marcus smart or somebody as a as a backup, just in case and Ricky did get in Ricky did the segment. That was. But Marcus actually did come on the show that day and had a segment, so he did get his. He did. Get a shot at being on the show, but up. I think that was probably the at least that I can remember taught my head of a other guests picker. Really, really getting down to crunch time in worrying about are they're gonNA. Make it or not the only time I feel like we've interacted on twitter, and it was very exciting for me like years back when you fall on twitter by the way, thank you for that, but we interacted on twitter recently about Pineapple on pizza on were on my side of me and another producer on our show. We're having a big debate about it. You are anti anti-piracy on pizza. Thank you for standing up for me with that and just explain your take on there I like pineapple with breakfast or in a a fruity drinkers. Something like that. Pineapple does not belong with my Pepperoni, sausage, onions and peppers. Now more warm pineapple. Thank you, thank you. That's what I said. I said that exact thing I don't drink juice with pizza. Just like I'm not like I'm not looking for that fruit during the pizza now. Also, what is your hottest food? Take along those lines. What what else drives bonkers when it comes, trust me bonkers with food all stakes. Fakes out of the parts and of the Carton Mental I'm okay with the whites out of the car, but but like the the fake exit. Any I understand people might need to do the egg beaters for health reasons but. If I, see like fake egg Omelette, or even worse is any place that microwaves their eggs for breakfast sandwich yet? Like what are you doing? That's just. That's such true. I agree with you. true or false. Famous people sometimes reach out to you for betting advice besides got some. Are you willing to share with us? The level of fame that this is reached I'm assuming you don't want name. It's it's funny I have had. Some people that reach out for some advice and that's all you'll say on. The names are interesting. Couple of definitely a athlete or two very successful. Businessman I feel like I'm just being tickled nowhere. There's no way I'm going to get. It Fun and Have to follow along during college football season every now, and then he'll love the tweet tweet at me and asked you usually usually, he's a December ex guy, but every now and then he'll kinda. Get get a little loose in a in, but it is funny. I can remember when we vegas ball this year with myself. With Kirk and a couple of other of our people on the crew in friends and we were outed, giner and Kirk had made a relationship out there with a gentleman he was with MGM Mirage and this gentleman says Kirk when you guys are done with your dinner. Come on by blank wants to meet you. Hang out there, really happy. And the guy goes to and make sure you bring the bear. He wants to talk to the bear as well. And I might. I'm good with that saw that was. That was a fun night going in and hanging out with? With with having some his his friends is well. It was. Like. Pinch me. Moments Wait like this guy actually cares what the hell have think about again it's it's pretty damn cool. It's like the. Like what I said after I had gotten to Augusta, the final four on my go I could go back and like tell like sixteen year old me. Yeah you know what in thirty years you're going to be sitting courtside at the final four working with with Dick vitale and Sean McDonough, and then you know after the game to get on a plane and go down to Augusta and cover the masters in Embiid Augusta national like you wouldn't believe it, 'cause. It's like everything that you hoped for and wanted to do so. There definitely have been a whole lot of those like scratch my head. Raise your eyebrow. Wait a minute tackle moments. You can admit this. This is something you can't say. No noise you for winners more than Stugatz he he, he would be on the famous person. I can totally name in what he did. This ball season might have been the most amazing gambling accomplishment ever. Did he miss it era. I'm trying to think for about sixteen. Yeah, fourteen, or was it was. Was it the Michigan State game that I think he finally got off the I. Know I know I had Michigan State and I think. I was worried because I think he had Michigan State as well and I you know. At this point, he's so due to win that he finally is going to win. Would crazy streaker. Who smells better, reese, Davis or Kirk herbstreet. Kirk herbstreet. Wow and the only reason I say that is because Kirk will usually come over before the show will do a little instagram thing, so I can get like a his Colonia Roma will naturally just kind of work its way in my facility where we're at the reasons, more more business he wants to get to the set stay locked in talk to craggy a little pep talk and and be prepared for the show and I don't get to. See. The restore like Aqua Joe or Whatever it happens to be that day now it's probably way out of my price range, but if you could ever find out what Kirk herbstreit wears, I would love that information. Maybe that was fun. Thank you of all five. Maybe what I'll do. Stealth like a lot of times. What will happen is. If we go to from. Game Day to a prime time game. Wind up! Doing is while go to a hotel will fly in go to. The hotel will change sedan for Awhile Watch the game so. Sneak into the Yes, chicken to the bathroom and. See what he's gotten his attache back, so you always go with him in the PGA to your producer right, so you're. You're in the booth with them. You're in the booth with Fowler. I'm actually in the game truck I. Sit in the game truck. On headset with. With both Chris Kirk? Then I'll graphics people on the producer and truck. You have any famous blunders of. Mistake I'm a producer Stugatz and Dan's ear. Throughout the show. I have over the course of my career, said something in their ear. They go to air with it. And then I quickly realized US Shit. That was not right. Do you have? I don't remember. I don't remember necessarily saying something that was wrong, but I do remember like I like watching other game. That's going on to try and keep them abreast like we're doing whatever it is Alabama. LSU'S ON CBS from watching that for a second, the graphics person is asking me a question of putting a note when our check and I'll be get back to our game and make an observation I'll be like. Wow, they seem to really be struggling on. Burst tanning in Kirk Christopher like yeah I just said that. Totally I totally forgot. Aware that they say yes. I can relate to that I've done that before you feed them a line that they've already said and they look like what are you? Are you listening and sorry? There's a lot back here. So with horse-betting. Okay, now do judge me if I'm up until like the wee hours of the night on the weekends betting Australian ponies with my friend zoom now. Why why? Why would I in college that? That's what I'm saying. It's so much fun like we are were on. Zoom were sharing screens were putting bets on horses that we have no clue about? About, we don't know any jockeys. We don't know any of the tracks actually now after a couple of months of doing and I'm starting to learn some of the jockeys cracks there, but at the beginning, just pulling numbers out of her someone who's a sports horse-betting expert as I would consider you. Do you like pick your jockeys? Pick your tracks and you. You only these or on a Saturday when you want to get after it. You're just bet on any race. That's available. Well I want to offer you a a year like the that's like a two or three hundred level course the Australian I want offer. You like the four hundred level course. The AP courts and I want you to get up early. Early in the morning now and I watched the Swedish trotters watching a bit Japan racing. Want you to go to the next level as opposed to just throw you. Now I'M NOT GONNA lie. There have been times where I've woken up in the morning, and I'm just like what did I end up last night? Let me check what number okay I'm here. Goes in two minutes. I could get an a little bit in here early morning, but I have avoided doing that so far now. How did you get into horse-betting specifically growing up on Long Island, it's it's a natural deal like my Dad's godfather actually used to write for. The daily one of the daily Racing Form Publications, so made by dad was into it. We had a quarter quarterhorse track out in Suffolk County Meadows. That was very very close to where where I grew up. My aunt and uncle lived literally ten minutes from Don Park. So is a situation where we'RE GOING TO VISIT A. Enjoys Knuckle Bob Maybe, we met my dad and I. would mom off and Macabre. Come on data? We'd go to Belmont Iraq for a for a couple of races, but It's always been a part of my livelihood, and then obviously going down to Miami I mean we were in the heyday of when we had highly a- Gulfstream and call her something highly You take the. Metro rail to the trial. You pick the trial rail. That's a highly back in the day, but it's always been something. I've loved doing and It's funny because I. Do a regular spot with Alexander on visa and he. He's asked me from time-to-time to you can only bet on one sport. The rest of your life. on and everybody automatically assumes it's going to be called football by its horse racing. Horse Racing Worlds College football, and so it's been a fun just. To have a bunch of people like you, it others like reach out on twitter looking for racing advice. How do I bet this race? Who Do you like today? And, maybe there will be a little bit of a bump of. Some new fans biggest people have the opportunity to to watch way opponents during the stop. I will give you this as someone who's new to the horse betting. There is no better feeling than the horse. You need coming around that turn on the final stretch. When you see your horse like pulling up and you're like Oh my God. We're gaining. Let's go come on open them up. Open them up. And then he actually does what you say, and he's been I can't think of another another sport that gives you that feeling like obviously hitting bets is fun and other sports. Sports, but the feeling of your horse coming on just when you need him to. At the end of the race I have not felt that type of enjoyment in other sports betting. I think at least the way either the handicapped the racism in my reaction to that my emotional attachment. It's almost like a you're happy you won your bet would be. I'm happy because I saw the puzzle I like the daily racing form with all of the information the entry season. It is like trying to solve a puzzle. What's the flow of the race? Who's going to be the? Favourite that you WANNA beat. WHO'S THE PRICE HORSE? You WanNa be on the price worse, the trendy or that you want to avoid, and it's just a feeling of accomplishment a one. Your bet be figured it out and see you wind up getting the better the public as well so. You're right and on the flip side. There are those times where authorities they'll see. Oh, you'll see yours in and you think you got it like I did yesterday in the the turf for the big that Senate Anita whereby by Horace Basically didn't get to the whole in time at a pull up, and then was probably the best for, but had itself third, but that probably happens a lot more than the other instance where you wind up winning, but it still you get to be frustrated. You get to get to some four letter words and. Angry, you know what you like. Fifteen minutes ago. Let's go to the next race and move on the. Race's always. Quick side note and you just made me think of this yesterday. I was watching. Gulfstream and it was just the most torrential downpour. Like why are we running in this like I? Get it. They're trying to avoid lighting. You couldn't even see the screen on TV, Gee. I saw the screen and I. Am not even going to bother handicapping in this car today and then. Go just kind of going through the car like wonder and I see their. Couple thirty. Dollar worse than that newest. Real price horses yesterday so out. That's what I kick myself and I'm like maybe I should look. At Gulfstream today. Maybe there were just people that handicapped off the morning line that can racist might have been still on the Turkey. You need to remember right now. Because nobody's there and you're getting so many people betting on this for the first time. They don't necessarily know what a what a main track only orces war navy, that, of course it might have been entered for the turps still hasn't dirt. Breeding could handle the all tracks. All because it. Even myself attacks, I make mistakes. Don't kind of follow through the process and go through with it, and maybe off money yesterday, but I do that now. I WanNa talk just general strategy here and I want to kind of aim towards the casual better, because not everybody is going to be doing a deep dive, and if you're talking to someone who's Kinda of like me, just wants to get into wants to have fun with wants to win a little bit of money. If they can't now. What's like the one or two things? You would say are the most important in terms of prepping for a race for the casual sports better. What would you say are some good things strategize with? Big Believer in recent form to. The last couple of races, the previous races is the horses form getting better horses for getting worse. Is the horse may be stepping up in class Viewed as sign of confidence that they. Can handle the move or is dropping, which might mean horses really telling off or a lot of times claiming races trainers will like to the basically play. Play play a shell, Shell, game or dice game. It'd be like okay. I dare you to. Claim the Horse, because it looks like the words might be tailing off, but really what the distracted do your purse knowing that the horse can win the race, and not that that goes on at all the clean up and ups of raising this in the no, no one ever ever has any false solution of pretense in running horses in such. A couple of quick things I like to be able to find maybe not all the time. The horse that's going to win, but in my handicapping. I liked to eliminate or Okay, who can't wait right? And they and they throw you. Throw out the filler junker, in whatever and then you really narrow it down to whether it's the favorites, your price horses. You're live horses in work from there. Because that I think that's a lot of times how you come up with a some some long winners. Maybe you throw out. can't win and that allows you maybe to play a horse. It may not necessarily look like he has a chance on paper. With when you take a closer look actually does now as far as the types of bets that. That we should be making now. The theory that I have only told me if I'm wrong about this. The Way I've always looked at it as people that make money sports gambling. They don't do parlays. They're betting couple bets a week and they're betting money on a couple of winters that they like when I think about horse-betting. Is it similar in that where the people that are really making money at this? What is their general strategy? I've become more of a what you call. What's called a vertical player with meaning? down so basically. Multi races pick four pick fives. A teacher, your point I know guys that all they will do is look for bad favorites, and they'll even pick like three or four horses in a race that are five to one longer flatbed them to win that way. If you get a five to one shot, you bet since you're coming out ahead, but you're right. The guys that really make a ton of money and do this really professionally in what they do, they will hammer horses to win. Win Bets A. A big bets in the in the daily double. Keough horse inexact a first and second that way, if the worst runs well and just happened to beat you get it on the back end, so you're you're right. even sports betting people like to bet a little to win a lot and obviously your odds go down a whole lot. When when more things have to happen in order to win, whereas really smart better is at least sports better than I know. Horseback handicappers that I know they're willing to. I'll put five hundred to win on the four to five shot here. I think yes fall to lose. What do you think about the strategy of? Because there's morning lines when every every day the racist come out, and there's lines, and then the lines obviously change so I tend to like. Is this a bad strategy I? Look at the horses that their money line morning. Their morning line was really good like it was three two one five to two, but now for some reason the race is about to go off in their ten to one eleven to one so I'm saying to myself at one point. had a good chart chance to win. At least someone thought so so I tend to go for those what you go forward what I like to go for the overlays in the race. Those horses that get Kinda forgotten in the betting. Those are the horses. Beyond, you don't want to be on the ten to one shot. That subtly is five to two. That was sometimes they win. Sometimes. It's just a bad morning line and the money is right. But more often than not you don't WanNa be on the twelve to one morning line horse. In this race I kind of like a price horse, nice rates, six horses twelfth one in the morning line, and then they're like seven to one six to one those are the worst is that? The public better is are on. It's obvious on the form, and those forces typically don't win, so you WanNa, you WANNA be on a three to one shop suddenly six to one. That's how make me feel a little better about my strategy I. You're you're you're you're you're you're on it you're you're you sound like you've educated yourself and it may be doing a pretty damn good job without you played. Like a worse beat in terms of horse-betting story, like one story that comes to mind of just like the most frustrating. I do. It was. Gosh it was actually. Last weekend! Got By had I've had a couple of those lately, but it was may chewing thousand three, or may two thousand four. There was a a five day carryover in the in the pick six at Hollywood park. And there was probably around one point, two one point three million dollars in the pool at the start of the day, and after the betting, which probably like four million dollars in the pool and let me jump in real fast for the people that don't know much about sports betting. It probably should've said it's on the front end. A pick six is when you have to pick the winner in six straight races so basically. He was saying that a bunch of days in a row. Row No one was able to do it. So there was a carry-over in this is getting bigger and bigger, and you have to put your ticket in obviously before the first six right, so you got the winners in all six races in at one time, so I couldn't a. it was a a ninety six dollar ticket, which is not a big pick six ticket by any means at all I want singling a horse in the first leg. Wayne's horse was like nine to two two. Something like that Oh my God. Yeah. Next race another ninety two five to one winner. Third leg. Another winner like seven, one eight to one or something. Winner fourth race finally there's a favorite in the race who winds up winning and I have four four next led a fifth leg. I have the longest shot on the board wings, so I'm five for five and one of my good friends is Larry Calmest who newsom people out of Hollywood park, and I had two horses on the last leg, and Larry's been following along with. With me and is who do you have I'm like I have the two and a half before is okay. Well I let me find out what the will pace are nothing better than looking at will pays, and so he he I think he calls me back and he's like well. If the two wings, you take down the hall, which is about three point one million dollars. Goes four wins. You went about one point four. I. All My Now that now I'm I'm like now I'm sitting in the back of the bristle and like everybody in their knows what's going on. Please, don't tell me that the to out. Good well. Don't worry. I'm not going GONNA. Tell you that to hesitated start and basically got left at the gate or his name was Aaron. Asha gets left at the gate and hesitates. He's like trail on the field and I'm like I'm dropping some choice words. But the four is a good position the forest Kinda. Cut kind of stock in running a good race, and as they start getting down the back. The later you're on the BACHELORETTE around the far turn to starts gaining some momentum starts moving. This is interesting, and that is happening. The four is basically coming up, really battling for the lead and I'm like Oh. My God is four. I'd actually take the lead and win. This race attitude continues. At makes this huge middle move before flattening out in the in the stretch, and the four winds up getting buried in on the inside, and why the getting beat, and I think I wanna get like fifty one hundred bucks, or whatever for like five out of six on on the ticket, instead of a multi million dollars. It would have changed my life I. The. Ultimate kicker the very next race, Erin broke lean and one for fun at like seventeen to one so I had the right horse at day. Break. My my my life should be to be changed. Right now should be hanging out with you. Stu. Got Celebratory Every Day in South Florida Lynn. The the star studded life. I was crushed is Sullen somber as I can buy speechless. Literally literally started crying I. AM sorry for laughing, but that is just in installs aims story man I have had will pays if this horse wins this when I get twenty three hundred. Seven hundred and I'm like vissing from that. I'm just trying to put myself in that scenario where that's. Is there a way to hedge their like? Did you think about putting like two hundred K. on like I? Don't know while there's another problem with having that when you're always as having access to that type of money. quickly, I think what I wind up doing. I did put some money. We'll whatever I had. On a couple of horses that to to win, but it was. It was no consolation. That's for sure. Man This is. I could talk for hours man so much fun. Thank you so much Chris. We're going to bring you back because I have more questions spending. Christopher League the Bear College Game Day. You know what we need to do. We need to do show. Miami highlighter or something?

Any of these packages in a bunch of them are mystery boxes. And it's going to be awesome so you can check that out on Youtube. We'll get that out on social media. Let's talk about the game last night. No Lamar Jackson. We know what slide Jason was on two hundred twelve yards passing five touchdowns sounds eighty-six yards rushing five touchdowns on twenty three ten. If you tell me the quarterback I'm going up against has fifteen completions for two hundred in twelve yards. I am thrilled. That's that's awesome I win. Oh five five passing touchdowns Oh we don't stop there. Eighty six rushing yards. He's he's such a chicote. It's it's not fair but it's awesome and and everybody. We were high on Lamar Jackson coming into this this year. But in the in the in the you know the few major leagues I plan. I just didn't get him anywhere. Someone someone took him before I did and it stinks. It stinks thanks not having. This is like the Lamar Jackson Year. Yeah it is you know no doubt I mean he. He went into the game. I think with thirty five total touchdowns on the season already and added another five to the total it was. It seemed very very very easy for him to do what he did last night. Forty two twenty one was the final score. And for those of you out there that were you know facing Lamar Jackson hoping that this was going to slow him down. I mean you got run over by a mack truck last night and now you have to try to survive backed up and just see if you're okay but accidentally ran over you again and then realized that ran over you twice sought fled the scene. This is the trump running you over again that had all the packages in it. Oh what what packages but mark Ingram was great thirteen for seventy six. This is what you get with Mark Ingram. You always get between. How does he do this? Eleven have because the team is the is the best offense in football and they score on the highest percentage of their drives. And it's just what they do so thirteen for seventy six and a touchdown Mark Ingram. Also the world's ultimate height man following mark mark. Ingram has been doing thing when he introduces the March but he did it again last night. Mark Ingram I. I don't want to retire. 'cause he's I I love Mark Ingram. He's been a fantasy stuff for years and years but when the man retires get him in a booth immediately. This dude is awesome. Would you like to describe right what he did or he just he so they give the microphone. And he's a hype man. Before Lamar Jackson comes in and talks. He just starts just inflating. The Egos like here comes Jackson. He is the main I've been telling you he is the sickest goes on but he doesn't wait cooler than I can. Possibly we do it. This is like a wrestling introduction. or Yes okay. That's pretty awesome. He also had an awesome game. He set you caught a touchdown as well. Oh Yeah Yup and then level on the other side had his best rushing game of the season eighty seven yards. twenty-three touches eighty seven yards no touchdowns. Jamison crowder six for ninety and two touchdowns not Mary Thomas. Last night that stinks. I mean that that stinks because nobody nobody out there. In the playoffs playing shamed crowd right now off the back of the three four games in a row and to have him go out and dominate is just unfortunate for fancy purposes but he looked great mark Andrews four catches fifty two yards and a touchdown He's just really good. I you know. We're bailed out in the sense that you know we were talking about all these other. Great options maybe. You could pivot to Ian Thomas but you don't know the health of Greg Olsen. You would pivot to higby. But you don't know the health of Everett so you're just GonNa have to take kit and start Mark Andrews. Oh shame at night. You know. It's like well thank goodness because you know he's been playing injured. All Year was the market. There was a play where there was a tight end. I mean he was struck down. The field. Wide Open was Andrew's close to an eighty artas. Yes all right. Let's get into the news. News and notes from around the League presented by sleeper. The eye injury news very important inter out on the show today Jameis Winston. He's throwing tennis balls so so we're okay. I think he plays faces Detroit. I think he plays as well. Bruce Arians hopes he can play I. I would hope that to Josh Jacobs. Say in. I think he's GonNa play as well. James Connor and Juju Smith Schuster and not in he has been ruled ruled out he re aggravated his knee in. Thursday's practice so he is definitely not playing. I think you know the Johnson has not. I been ruled out but is not expected to play. And then devante Parker Jared Coo- Cook Kuzyk. They are both limited in practice coming off of the cautioned. The fact that there are limited in practice Thir- at least trending towards playing but monitor the situation. Yeah they're part of the game plan. If you're out there in practice you you gotta hope that they clear. Jared Cook is a Monday night. Game coup but the biggest. That's good news and bad news for Kook because the reality here is is that that gives them an extra day to pass concussion protocol. The Nice thing is if you can pick up Jack Doyle who's also Monday night that gives you the you know if you can't go then you've got the pivot option. You Josh Hill an emergency. If you're if you're ninety five percent sure that jared cubic going to play Eh. Then Josh Hill is backup. Emergency play there too. Yeah and obviously jared has been great and I would really like to play Kydd. He's the dine done with it never. He's the number two tied in behind Zakar over the last four weeks that being said it has has come on the back of touchdowns which is obviously. That's nice well. It's nice when you get him but at the end I mean that's hard. Res Hasn't hasn't been up there with the other guys in in that. You know certainly last week to targets two touchdowns knocked out with a concussion. News notes is always brought to you by the sleeper APP. Dome is the big big updates on Sunday morning one hour before kick-off it sounds like Jason and I will both be Sunday live. WE'RE GONNA burn dowd. Probably and then game day alerts joined the foot dot com. Get back into the forecast. Dana's NFC forecast guys like my sweater. I actually festive. Love your sweater because it you're saying. I'm a cardinal fan but Christmas is more important than say. My sweater is three nine and one the record. It's very festive. It is I. Ooh I love those though. I'm giving away a lot of gifts today so it seemed like I needed to May think we've got some Santa handles like a loser. I need three nine and one but a little sweaters. Fantastic thank you the team is just. They're they've bringing shame upon all. Well we we'll talk about their matchup shortly. broncos was chiefs buccaneers lions. Texans Titans Dolphins Giants seahawks Panthers Bears Packers Patriots Bengals. If you heard me just say team name it was on yesterday show. We did those matchups yesterday. You can listen to that episode if you want him if you WanNa hear them again because you heard him yesterday. That was so good. I want to hear and broken down again exactly the same way. You can really listen to yesterday's episode Ye. They might be a little different. You'll you'll have to listen to me changed one thing. Can you find eagles at six. And seven battling for the division against the Washington Redskins at three and ten eagles are four and a half point road food favorites. It's a thirty nine point over under. Aw that's my your visceral reaction to the game were. What is this a buffalo game? It's Dwayne Haskins game The problem is on one side of the Paul. You have the eagles with a serviceable too. Good quarterback in wins who has no weapons to throw the ball to and on the other side. You have a quarterback who can't throw the ball to anyone so that's where you get a low all over under and the redskins defense lately has been surprisingly stout cam a little worried about this game in general for the the Eagle Side. Because it's a divisional game the redskins like you said over their last eight games. They allowed the eighth fewest. Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks you saw last week I mean they played Aaron Rodgers supposed to be a smash game. Rogers didn't do much. I'm playing the eagles. Defense everywhere year my like semifinal match matchup of choice so I've got them plugged in all over the place. 'CAUSE DWAYNE has his can't do anything remember when these teams were cool week one. It was thirty to twenty twenty seven wins. Said three hundred three case keenum had nearly four hundred yards and three. I thought you were going way back. I thought you were saying no. Rg Three and Michael Van. Even if the do that 'cause week like one it was awesome. Well that Lauren did Sean Jackson. These guys were cool. Yeah yeah not so cool anymore no but probably victory for the eagles in this one to get them to five hundred to compete. Better be and I believe is Dallas is the Dallas game next week Brooks yes. The Dallas Eagles game aim is. That'll be exciting. That will that will be an awesome. Who Won't lose? Somebody won't lose the division. Now I will say awesome. I'm looking at the the last five weeks of the red skins for specificity and looking how they have been against certain positions Twenty second against gets quarterbacks twenty seconds against running backs twenty eight against wide receivers. They've been pretty stout at meaning. They're they're the very difficult to score on but tight ends have actually. They've they've really. They've been the fourth best matchup. And now you've got across the field Zakar style gutter go. Yeah I mean you're you're always placards anyways and he's been the number one tied him for a while but it brings Dallas Goddard into the picture a little bit. I feel like I've said that so many times about Dallas. Got It over the last four weeks. I'm done with the I'm done with the narrative of there's limited weapons like debt Dow. One doesn't matter to me what matters to me is something like that. Where like they're very vulnerable to tight imposition? But you know he hasn't had smash games in the absence of Nelson Aguilar alshon Jeffery etc.. He had tossed down against New England England. But it hasn't been a gold mine like you hoped for right because the offense has just been stagnant and slow and slow pace of play and just kind of difficult to watch and last week. It was ugly until it wasn't at the very end. You were waiting for. At least I was waiting for order these injuries to cause Dow Scott to be more involved in the actual more snaps but the last two weeks. He's been out there. You know. Fifty seven sixty eight percent of snaps APPs. There's been so many places he's not even on the field and I'm you know I'm curious about that from a from a coaching standpoint. When you need pass catching weapons when they needed him it was Joshua Perkins at the end of the exactly? Why wondered if he was injured or something? But it's it makes it hard to trust God or even a plus matchup without the other weapons no change change in the status of Jordan Howard at all. So we're going to go going to go into this game with Mile Sanders and Boston Scott. I'm not chasing the Boston. Scott points. Okay I know that he was picked up everywhere and I guess you kind of have to do that. But you know this was a pivot mid game this this was miles. Sanders banged up. Well Mile Sanders dehydrate. He had he had crepes. Yeah he was out for a little while the IV do you. Do you look at Boston. Scott with Flex Rela like relevance I look at them. If you're a desperate person in need I am a desperate person might well then then buses Scott interest you running back. Who had one hundred twenty eight total yards? Yeah I mean He. He was great believe he was the running back seven last week. He was the spark plug that got them going knowing and now out of Philadelphia everybody's talking about They they're excited about him. Taking on that Darren sproles role now would you. You've rely on that for a playoff matchup. That's the role that they're really excited about me. Darren sproles was very limited in terms of touch so so oh I think you've got to question him in the same way that you've got Patrick. Layered Patrick layered is on the ground. He's doing it as a receiver. Same as possible. Lots of Scott. Yeah I would take Patrick glared easily. Okay well then that means. You're not playing Boston Scott. Yeah if it's an easy choice for layered Scott Scott is letting consideration laird is on that running back to edge Miami for miles sanders. He didn't come through with any fantasy game of note. It was one of those. That was tough. 'cause he had they finally got on the goal line. He had the cramps. He was off the field as Boston. Scott he got stuffed on the goal. Line So but he still had twenty opportunities in those in his limited snaps in fifty six percents of the snaps last week. I think they think it goes back to predominantly Mile Sanders. You could still count on him in this matchup. When Eagles had to come back last week right they had about? Oh back. And that's where the pass catching you know. sproles role is more prominent. Otherwise Nelson Aguilar didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. I don't think he's GonNa play again alshon on I. R R whiteside is not good enough. No yet Greg Ward is Greg Ward. Yeah and then on the other side you got McLaren. Who played for the Redskins last week? He was actually you know. Oh I'm okay with okay. I'm Terry Secondary is defunct ceus late last week. So you're okay with Terry. Yeah I'm okay with him because the Haskins is at least feeding him. I mean like twelve targets three weeks ago. Four one against the Carolina that game kind of fell apart but seven having targets against Green Bay. Four fifty seven with a touchdown i. I'm okay playing him when I say okay. He's a three he's a flex type of player he'd unfortunately Stanley he where he was kind of emerging as to. But I would play I love. I love McLaren's ability at but I I'm I'm not playing Terry maclaurin since week seven. This is a very large sample. Now that we're in week fifteen. Do you know what wide receiver he is us and this is including his his good game. This last week is wide receiver and he saw that one coming Yes so I mean I'm just not relying on when Haskins based on the fact that maclaurin is is good and can get open I i. I just don't WanNa do that in the playoffs. Yeah Yeah I like him. I'm with Mike on this. One Eagles showed me what happens. against their secondary. But it's just it's tough. It's not an exciting game and Adrian. Peterson is Fine volume plays. We've been talking about your center. Patrick layered Adrian Peterson. I lean layer layered. Yeah I'll take the pass catching high brown six and seven cardinals three nine and one there at home but they're three point underdogs. This line is changed. I believe I think it was a two point line yesterday. Winter maybe I'm wrong. forty-nine point over under cuyler Murray has been real bad. The last two weeks both at home I believe he was pro. Football focuses worst worst ranked passer and both weeks. Yes congrats Arizona the defense allowing two hundred ninety four passing yards per game. His why Mike Mike Has Baker Mayfield as his stream of the week. Yeah you can. You can rely on it. They've been the cardinals have been massacred by everyone. Not Named Doc. Hodges he can kill ducks but what what do you do with kyle either. 'cause I there are multiple People that have. I texted me. Message me looking at the James Winston hand situation looking at other streaming options like Ryan Fitzpatrick and saying. Do you go Schuyler at home against the browns defense or you know before the two bad weeks keiler is had been pretty darn good but Cleveland hasn't in a lot of three hundred yard passer they. They're okay middle of the pack. Defense what do you do either. I mean you I think cuyler can be started because of his rushing ability. You look at the browns and you know the last five weeks when they've been beaten. You know by Fitzpatrick Patrick. Who has has turned into the the running game as well for The Miami Dolphins and Josh Allen they they can be beaten by mobile quarterbacks. So that's kind of why I'm okay starting him. I'm not thrilled to start cuyler because obviously these last two weeks have been horrendous in this match up. Would you rather stream Baker off the waiver wire or pick up or play keiler. Who's on your team? I would rather play keiler. I I would rather play the home home quarterback who has a better history. This season of good fantasy finishes who also has the rushing baseline that Baker doesn't necessarily have the upside of one of these guys was to go nuclear. I would assume the if one guy gets four passing touchdowns it's probably Baker. But right I would I would. I would think the Safer options collar Mike Baker side. I I am yeah. They're pretty close. Consensus rankings have Baker at ten cuyler at twelve vilain the guarantee of Baker. Because I feel like the way Carlos plan right now scares me. Yes all right in the backfield in Arizona. David Johnson did have a touchdown hush down last week but I believe at five touches in the game. David Johnson had three carries into receptions so you are correct but they were all all good all good touches like when you when you watched. Yeah I mean what are you gonNa take away from him like yeah I will I what what are you gonNa take away. I mean He. He played better last week. He had three carries. Yeah and they were good carries. Are you saying you don't think he has a chance of taking more of the market. Sure this we know that. Ah Yes that is what I'm saying. I gave them three carries i. I concur I wouldn't touch David Johnson and fantasy with a ten foot pole hoping grinch. Dial that somehow they see what they did last week. They're going to give them more work enough work to be FI fantasy relevant. I mean that's not to say he didn't look good it on those three carries. But you can't bank on all of a sudden he's GonNa get ten to twelve touches this week because he was good on his three carries last week. He he had twenty one snaps. Drake at thirty eight Edmonds Eleven. There are a lot of fantasy owners David Johnson in Dynasty Leagues and Keeper Leagues. That you know would I would like to see some production from and if you have a kid who is a better week last week for David Johnson. They had been in like five weeks. Yeah if we're talking long-term it'd Kenyan. Drake is a free agent after this year. And David Johnson's still under contract. So it's not you don't abandon all hope if you have him on your dynasty league you you're not feeling great about it but there's there's at least a sliver of hope niche hubs in your lineup. Kareem Hunt is in your lineup. The number five starts at question. This week is cream hunt versus where he moster. Yeah I mean Kareem Hunt His involvement in the passing game. That I've had I feel that a lot of cream hunt questions where I haven't necessarily gone hunt because the other options were great but Kareem Hunt. Listen to his fancy finishes since he's been back the running back eighteen the running back thirty against Pittsburgh throwing sixteen sixteen. Fifteen I mean is is just pretty consistent because of that pass catching work and this is a plus matchup so I think if you want. He's he's a he's a running back back to weekend and we counsel for all right other question marks in this game. I'd stay away from David and now the knee injury that's not what he was coming back off a VR for. He knew injury so you know came back with the rest. I'm not looking at rookie. Seals Jones at all revenge is game. Sure no I'm not either. I just wanted the joke. And then Jarvis Landry is. Mike started the we. He's GonNa Crush Odell Beckham. You have do. Do play em against Arizona. If you're GONNA I mean right yeah you do you have to. Yeah reluctantly Christian Kirk. Eight for ninety five last week against Pittsburgh. I thought that was a good performance from Christian Kirk. I think he's a wide receiver to three situation. Yeah he's he's my wide receiver twenty-one this week at home in a matchup against the browns are middle of the road. Kirk has looked is fine. I mean this is really just which you're going to get because of kyle comes out and has a good game and Chris Kirk is going to have a solid performance. Larry Fitzgerald Mike. If you look in his way at all no nope unfortunately not all right before again to this next match-up i WanNa thank Omaha. steaks you can give the holiday gift that families across US America have love for one Hundred Years Omaha steaks right now.

Footballers all right Jacksonville At foreign nine collapsing heads to Oakland against the raiders at six and seven collapsing raiders are six and a half point favorites forty five and a half point over under. I thought about making this my almost upset but I don't care enough. I totally get that. I was looking at this game. You know we we do. We do picks in in the office here of just you. You know picking the winners of every game a fun little Price Pool and I got to this game and I'm like man. These two teams have just been just on a downward spiral and one of these teams has to not lose. This week's I just went with the home team but I I mean the the vines have just been so bad for these two teams over the last month. It's crazy because the raiders are heavy favorites. They get to five hundred. which seems like you're you're pretty happy as an organization through fourteen games in Oakland year to John? Grooten at seven right. But isn't it. It's quite different when you battle back to seven seven and you're on a hot streak versus kind of salvaging. It's just been gross for both of these teams Jacksonville. kind of seemed like they were going to be competitive to start this year. You went from Gardner of foles back to Gardner who hasn't looked good since his return they lost Ramsey on defense at first just holding out and saying he doesn't I want to be there and then getting traded and that's that's obviously caused a lot of domino effects on that defense because the Jacksonville defense which was once mighty mighty is an. It's just a smash plight like you know your mic. Your start of the week is Josh Jacobs or Andre Washing. Yep matter whoever gets the luxury Sherie. They're allowing me sing the Jaguars they're allowing two hundred thirty yards a game. It's preposterous how bad they are to running to running back so running backs. Yeah Yeah. That's that's a lot a hundred. His ally impressive were. There's a reason Josh Jacobs. And then if he's out yonder in Washington are guaranteed not autostarts. This week at the running back position. The raiders defense is is really bad as well if you look at how they rank over the course of the season you know. They're are there terrible there in the bottom ten against every single position Leonard Fournette. He's in your lineup. He has been for a while. Dj Chuck has not practiced. dissed the last thing I read that he's pushing hard to play in. This gains the. If he's active. Is He gonNA play on. His scooter. Is the of the tier and hand ability to nine for seventy five last week. Unlimited words good player. But he's on a scooter. Yeah but are you gonNA play. Let me let me give you a situation Asian Mike. Dj Charges Active. Okay you play him. Over Larry Fitzgerald I think you do. Yeah do you play him over Christian Kirk. No no I think you do. I'll play Kirk. I would definitely play Kirk. I don't I I'm not of the opinion that if a guy is active. I'm GonNa we uh who has that kind of ability against the worst defense maybe football giving up the most twenty plus yard place to a guy that has probably the most twenty eight-plus chargers play yard plays in football. I'm just GONNA put them in. Do you WanNa play him or Adam feeling all. PG PLAY DJ chartres. Okay Yeah. I'm terrified of Adam feeling. So that's one of those ones where it's been. It's been a while and he's burned since he's come back are you. You're both afraid of Turkey's act. Yes I am afraid of charge of his act of this. There's an injury that was expected to keep him out. Pretty you know conclusively and so he's pushing the play. That's Great I. He traveled with the team. That's great his scooter Ozzy. They're just tied the rope to the plane. Yeah but I I do I worry about the limitations from the injury and then you take the injury away and you say okay. Well he's obviously had some great games especially with with Gardner but he's you know since week nine. He's been the wide receiver thirty one. which is that's okay? It's not. It's not unusable all for fantasy but it's not like he's been how he was the first five weeks of the season when he was a top five wide receiver in a while. And then you add in the hobbled ankle now the the matchup up is good. You know and honestly if he's back I think it's great news for Garner Minhsiu and for the over on this line to be able to move more but I don't know that he's going to do enough to make you happy as a fantasy owner Garner at one point time was a pretty solid streaming mean candidate. He's not in this matchup. Is that where you're at because of the charge injury in the momentum of this team. Yeah that's why if charge was active. Meant you probably would have been my streamer streamer. Okay Dede Westbrook without DJ Charter. You willing to play yes. I'm I'm willing to play both Deon. Chris Conley I. If you have to choose between the two I would go I man I guess I d it seems like a floor ceiling type of playlists. Okay you play against Lamar Jackson last night. Jason Yes you point Didi. Are you playing Chris Conley I am playing DD. Because I expect eighty to have more more fantasy points but I get your point. Is that if you're in one of those situations where you need a higher ceiling you know we we saw someone say that they are pivoting from Marlin Mac back to Re moster that one makes a lot of sense you you really want the ceiling play. Mac doesn't have the matchup that says multi touchdowns bounds are are in the realm of possibility. But I don't know that Conley has any higher potential for a touchdown then deed now according to pro football Paul focused trayvon. Molin will be guarding Chris. Conley and that is the DB that just gave up the two touchdowns to AJ Brown. Not Saying that Chris Conley AJ Brown. That's not what I'm saying but you if you will allow big plays no no all right I think. Dj Charts Have Monster Game. I believe it is going to have a huge game against Oakland. He is on the precipice of both double all digitized. Downs in one thousand yard season. He's turning the right direction. That's what I believe. I wouldn't play DVD. or Chris Conley if track. That's where I was going into the if if dr surprises to me not surprised them out on Conley tyrel Williams news came out still bothered by Plantar Fasciitis. Maybe that explains explains why the beginning of the year tyrel was so much more consistent looking than interview. But you can't play tyrone Williams right now. There's no trust there. Darren Waller has at twenty three percent target. He's GonNa be in your lineup. Yeah you have to play him outside of that. You're not looking at Derek Carr at all despite how bad Jacksonville's accent bill's been because you've just have better things to do with your life. Yeah I mean you you know maybe dross Jacobs or deandre Washington touchdowns come come via receptions. That's that's how Derek Carr gets done. But you're not going to bank on that because I think they're gonNA come via Carey's vikings nine four take on Cindy. Philip rivers lead chargers who are five and eight chargers have allowed one top twelve quarterback performance this entire year as tied with the ravens for the fewest kirk cousins. What do you do with Kirk cousins on the road? Then does he because he has been so trustworthy as eight. Fantasy quarterback could have Adam feeling back. Where are you at with Kirk cousins? I'm following those matchups in. It's not just that they haven't allowed Of A single top twelve performance in that was Shawn Watson in week three. But you're talking. These quarterbacks are ending up in the twenties and that includes so Jacksonville last week Denver the week before not not tough match ups but Kansas City was full was four weeks ago. The chargers unders defense against the pass is totally legitimate kirk cousins. Maybe he was at home. I would be willing to do it but I I don't and I I. This is the point of the. I would still lean picking the Vikings to win this game but I but the chargers could easily we ended up with. This is one that I thought about making the upset. Well I was right on the edge part of the reason that the the chargers defense has been so. Oh good against quarterbacks against wide receivers very similar to what we've seen In Kansas City and in buffalo which is part of the reason is because they are very repeatable on the ground. And if you look at the heart of it I mean just the sense of Whatever points are scored or beat up to two different positions and win? You can run on the team Those points go to the running back position and not too wide receiver quarterback and this is a team in the vikings that want to run the ball. They want to be a running and defensive-minded defensive-minded team great matchup here for Alvin Cook. And so yeah I I would hesitate to start Kirk. I don't think he's GonNa kill you. You Know I. I took them to be the quarterback fifteen or sixteen. So you could. You could do worse but I don't think he's the upside option. You're looking for in the playoffs chiefs against the chargers Dalvin Cook. Yep De Delvin. Sorry Oud Alvin Kook Kook. Melvin Gordon on the other side. I've I've heard from a lot of people in the industry. Big Fans of Melvin Gordon this week are you to onboard. I'm fine with them. I Yeah I mean I really people are big fans. I mean. I'm fine playing cards in your lineup but I. I'm not projecting to be like a running back one this week. He's been the RB nine You know over the last eight games. Seventeen point five opportunities per game pretty safe baseline yeah. He's had a safe baseline he's really disappointed when it comes those big monster games that he was giving weakened weak out last year A lot of that's been you know. The the touchdown rate that he had last year was was pretty high. But yeah. You're starting Melvin Gordon. You're starting Austin equitor But I you know. This isn't a smash matchup. The Vikings are top ten against running backs giving up on the eighteen point. Four your fantasy points per game to the position in the past two months really the only team to really have a ton of success against the Vikings at the running back position that was Seattle. Okay awesome tackler. Yeah you always play him. Mike Mike Williams and Keenan Allen. What do you do with the chargers? Wide receivers receivers. Mike Williams finally got into the end zone last week. He's actually had a couple of really impressive performances in a row. Keenan has kind of just not giving you anything special. But he's been pretty reliable. Don't like the disparity between them as far as the rank that Correct Star and Mike William Liam seems like a a flex option. You think they're closer together. I do. I totally agree Mike. Mike Williams is a sneaky. Good play this week. Yeah it's been pretty nice throwing the ball on Minnesota for a lot of this year. Yeah I mean last week. Sixty three two touchdown. A hundred seventeen yards seventy six yards. Mike Mike Williams has been Mike. Willy's has been pretty good. Just hasn't gone the touchdown he had the robber would syndrome so he just felt like a Mike Williams e- he he just kind of gives me some points but he never explodes. Mike Williams is a great spot here. There's a handful of these situations where the the one to the disparity. So big and you so you just don't understand. Necessarily why based on the Macho John Brown Coal Beazley's another one of those where you know John Brown gets all the credit and Kobe's ignored week in week out out digs on the other side. I'm feeling you know if Dylan's active. It's a simple question are you. Are you gonNA play him. Or you're gonNA worry about losing him during this game there's a there's a huge combination here of things not in his favor. There's the fact that he's already come back and hurt himself. He's he's he's missed obviously a lot of the game so now you worry about the injury but then there's the matchup this is you know we talked about how good the chargers have been against quarterbacks. Well kind of affects the. They're receiving options percents. They're even better against wide receivers as a top three defense giving up only twenty two point two points this is. There's a pivot game you. We said this before. But if you're in the playoffs right now and feelings on roster you've already found your replacement for the last couple of weeks. I would probably roll with that replacement and gives dealing approve it week for health in a bad match play Jamison crowder from last night is grace pivot to crowder fats from yesterday call would would you. Would you pivot to Anthony Miller against Green Bay. That's a little too far down. Congress has been a very good secondary as well. Would you pivot to Darius area slayton against Miami. Yes yeah waiting over the. I don't know what to do with Eli this week. I really good. We're in these conversations with some of our leagues about Winston's hand and what happens if he's not active. Now I figure we're probably just playing Winston but you look at Ryan Fitzpatrick you look at. Eli Manning I think there's a lot of reasons to like Eli Manning but do you have do you have the intestinal intestinal fortitude Aaron Rodgers at home against Chicago. Or would you play the Eli Manning Aaron Rodgers I mean. I can't 'cause I caught him. I followed the plan but if I could pick it back hanging out with the manning on the waiver wire is what he's doing right now. I Oh that's your me I'm playing ally. You're mean it's all terrible question to ask me. I think I'd play ally Manning. I think I would hunter Henry. You Start Kyle Rudolph I think you can move on. He's been a a great while theline has been absent but this isn't a good matchup. It feel on his back. I'M NOT GONNA in the latest update Chad graph. He covers the the the Minnesota Vikings. They've said barring a setback. The Vikings are currently planning to have Adam Phelan. They didn't rename setbacks. Phelan's Rei hiring. Alright Falcons foreign nine forty niners at eleven into Game San Francisco Forty niners heavy favorites. This is love and points. That's the spread. Forty eight point over under forty niners of just a great football team really are Adam. Left Co tweeted out. Aw maybe just to contextualize it. They're the first team in. NFL history to play three consecutive games with teams where their opponent was at an eight hundred hundred. Winning percentage or better. They smashed the packers by twenty nine points. They lost on a last second field goal to the Ravens. Then they won. The shootout against is to New Orleans in the superdome in superdome. That's just really impressive. Coaching play by Jimmy Garoppolo and company. Here we are in this match up. Their defense has been more vulnerable in recent weeks at least two opposing quarterbacks but they still pressure the quarterback tremendously. We know that Matt Ryan can't move around a lot and we'll get pressured and we'll get pressured quite a bit He does have Julio Jones he does. Have Austin Hooper. You're probably have better things to do then. Then play Matt Ryan that is probably your situation and the the risk is high but I still like him this week. Compared to the consensus quite a bit because of what we've seen over the last six weeks against San Francisco and Julia Julia Jones Julia. I know you listen to this. PODCAST obviously over. His last eight game sees the wide receiver thirty four. Julio Julio Jones this is series. You're talking to him right. I D. I'm being directly to the man. This is the semifinals of fancy plates. Julio Jones we we need you buddy if you could just give us one of your Julio Games right now you need to go in that phone booth and then and then again next week but this week and you need to come out. Dressed back as Julio Touchdown Jones. Yes you come out of that phone booth until you are dressed head to toe that as Julio Touchdown Jones which is the exact same uniform normally has but he wears a little math but he gets you got a mask and like the visors on the Helmet and the escorts touch Danny. He always scores such. I look Richard Sherman's out of this game. They're hoping he returns in week. Sixteen but he's not going to be there the secondary the defense. They're beat up and they've been vulnerable. Julio should be able to surpri Julio has scored since week three. He's doing it again. He's he's doing come on well. Oh you miss. He missed some time Mike. He didn't score at all when he was missing time. Yeah I look. I know this should be a good matchup for Julio. Oh you've got no calvin than you think no Muhammed's new. Julio is obviously a superstar. NFL Wide Receiver. So the Watson level I would I mean you just call them named them the same thing. I just want you to know that you name. Julio Jones and just watching the exact same thing I apologize just wants Oh gosh I would be trying to find other options and devante Freeman you will. I'll have a floor with him in terms of total work. But this is a forty niners defense that gives up fourteen points to the opposing. You know. Two opposing running backs. We saw some Brian Hill last week. You break up fourteen. Fifteen sixteen point across devante Freeman in Brian Hill. You're not happy with your start. Yeah right now. The D. Line is still the strength of the San Francisco. Forty niners offense or defense and The offensive line is one of the weaknesses for the Falcons. So that's that's a concerning owning match up on the other side Jimmy Garoppolo looks like a really good play. I mean I don't know what it is about me that is hesitant to believe You know I am I I every time. I get Garoppolo V. someone question. I'm I'm usually going the other way and I'm starting starting to second guess myself because Garoppolo the only thing he has done lately a show us that he can absolutely be a good fantasy option. He's GonNa done game after game and now this is a very plus US match up in a game where I think Atlanta will keep up. Exactly I mean the garage. Little Bit Grop. Lows should be a quarterback that is starting to locked and loaded for for me. Okay and I I think Jason I'm looking over at what he has done trying to find a reason. Why because I have the same feelings you but I think that comes from either he? He was great or he. He tanked your quarterback position and you had a huge disadvantage against your opposition because it was like five. He was quarterback quarterback five against the saints. Thirty one against the Ravens had a couple good Games but then twenty two against Seattle Twenty Against Carolina. Well Yeah but you're skipping when he was the number two number three in the. But that's what that's what I'm saying. He wasn quarterback fourteen. He wasn't quarterback thirteen. He wasn't like a fringe. Oh I'm okay okay. I got outscored at the quarterback position. But it's not bad it's either. He is great or you your mind. Seven points at the QUARTERBACK I. It's it's more than that too. Though Mike because we sit here and we talk about players lose their pass catchers to injury will. He added a superstar Emmanuel Sanders but then he went out injured. He's averaging seven more points per game with Emmanuel Sanders you have just. The dynamic receiving corps depot has taken a step forward in recent weeks kittles the best tight the end in football arguably and then you have more health in the backfield. What most has been able to do Morita coming back to having Coleman is there? I'm taking over in this game. I really am what forty eight so I mean I. The forty niners are projected to score twenty nine point seven five points and I. I think that they're going to put a put a weapon. Yeah and then Ramo sturt is the best running back play on this team this week yes I'm confidently. Starting Him I I believe he's you know he's been the quarterback twelve four and four in the last three weeks I've shared a lot of Cow Shanahan's comments on talking about where he moster. Yes okay you said quarterback so I was confused. That's interesting par for the course. cowhands been talking about needing to get him the ball more and that he's just he's just flat earned it. And we've seen at Tevin Coleman gone by by and so I think Should get enough if he gets. Twelve carries tough talk touches. Like I think he's going to have a game he has. I think that has a chance to surprise this week as well. Yeah where my my hesitancy to get behind Rehim Oester too. I do not disagree. I think he at least at this point is he's the best running back on the team he will be. He's the best fantasy option on this team. But in that run where he's been a superstar quarterback for fantasy the last three weeks. He's also running back. Did I say okay to you. Did you both said quarterback. Oh man he's GonNa he's GonNa throw something this week loud. Whatever you heard it here first runner? He's doing that on such limited work with two other options on the team that it just freaks me out to be your your boldly bearing your chest for Komo stirred it. He has the same number of averaging twelve carries in two targets in that three game span. He has the negative game with nineteen. Carry the same number of fifteen eighteen yard or more rushing carries leading the league tied with Christian. McCaffrey who has the opposite workload. So I sti- believe in the talent I believe in the matchup believe in Shanahan. I I think he's going to get more work. This okay okay. Would you play Kenyan Drake or Matt Breda Br Break Eric Oh drake I thought you were saying moster all right. Julio Jones we talked about Emmanuel Sanders you gotta play Manual Sanders Man. Twenty eight percents twenty-five percent targets for the last two weeks since he's returned deebo Samuel. I think he's a flex option this week as well he saw involved he gets a couple live carries every game you get screened passes. He's scored recently. He's GonNa be guarded by cornerback. Isaiah all of her who is allowing the second most yards after catch the League which is a depot specialty yet is. Yeah it is. Yeah it is and then Austin Cooper. I like him this week quite a bit so much so that I made in my start word of the week and then George biddle Yep yep he up rams eight and five cowboys six and seven. Rams are one point favorites on the road in Dallas forty-nine endpoint over under I like the rams in this game to continue their I Dunno momentum. The cowboys and Snow Line opened end with the cowboys favored by four. What yeah and now? The rams are favored by one. That's one of the largest movements. I can remember why. Why is it moved were? Why would they have opened his four point favorites and moved it? Will it move because everyone started the rams. Yeah that's insane. Good I would bow. I just trying to figure out what injury happened. Happened in that span. I've never seen a line move that much. That if it it could have something to do with that Dallas Owen six versus teams with winning records. Get up to do with. Mike started the week. Jared Goff my started the week Cooper Cop Mike started the week as sir. Just imagine of jared Gareth had jeered Kook. Just imagine what he could do. Our show would never get done. It will be three hours-long foods. You see jared huge. YOU GO OUT I. I think you're right Mike I think it would never. I don't think we'd ever and it would become a new show. It would be breaking down to players every week. That's would be. Oh my goodness Jared Goff leading the League in twenty plus yard passing plays for point six per game big opportunities for Cooper Cup for Robert Woods. Woods Tyler. Higby you like him to continue. Even if Everett's Mac Mike or no no it's it's the start of the week was based off project. I don't think Everett's out. I'm projecting ever doubt. He didn't in practice Wednesday or Thursday with with the knee injury and I think he'll be out again all right and then looking at Todd Gurley he's in your lineup doc. On the other side at home Dax just been too good to sit. I think for fantasy purposes. I don't think you can go away from him here at home. He's been better at home. Amari Cooper has been better at home. What do you do at the peripheral options in Dallas? Though you know. You're playing Zeke. But what about Gallup I think Gallup says is a good play. You Expect Amari Cooper to get Ramsey. So Cooper scares me a little bit but like you said. You're you're playing him. I do have worries hesitations air but that should mean a few more targets targets going Michael Gallup's way and he's he is looked really good this season he's had plenty of solid games and pass the eyeball test. So I'm confident playing. I mean if data is going to have a good game and Cooper's going to have Ramsey than gal passed to step forward if they want to chance Gallup has double digit targets and three of his last last five games. And he's coming off that game. Ten targets six receptions one hundred nine yards against Chicago all right Sunday night football. What on Earth do you do this on the bills at nine and four steelers at eight and five? It's a great real life matchup. The steelers are one and a half point. Favorites is a thirty five and a half point over under which is ultra ultra low roof. That's eighteen seventeen type of game so for fantasy purposes. The story is much different than my own like intrigue like I want to see this football game. Yeah I think it's going to be pretty exciting in. The steelers can put themselves in a very strong position to make the playoffs if they can win at home against buffalo flow their defense has been so outstanding over the last two months. Both of these defenses have been so good that makes it very difficult to to start any options. I feel like Josh Allen is a guy that's been so reliably doesn't just destroy you with a terrible week because rushing floor but and what isn't going to be in here I get a one touch down. You know you're hoping for to Devon single. Terry's been unbelievable. He's been a top ten running back since he took over the start. But what's we're GONNA do. The the ceiling across everybody here is so limited where I'm staying away from John Brown and Co Beasley. I'm preferring pivot away from Josh Allen. Single Terry's probably someone you have have to start at the ringling scary for me I mean so. Few points expected to be scored. Here I you know I do do. I want to be in on deontay Johnson because he looked so good last week but then you got the duck. Hodges against the the the bills defense. It's like just. This is a kind of a stay away from bills against fantasy. quarterbacks third bills against fantasy wide receivers fourth against the team that they're passing attack is anemic best. I'm willing to play Devon single. Terry I know the touches will be there in the I mean with you James Connor. I think at at this point you expect him to be active and start in this game he probably has the same mindset that I have with Devon single terrier on the other side where it's a hesitant possibly ceiling ailing lists start at the position. The bills can be beaten on the ground. I mean this is one of those things. Where if you told me you guarantee me that James Connor plays the game starts and play? The whole game does not get reaction would be actually talking about. Cars are really good play. I'm just afraid hesitant because of injury so this might be one of those playoff. You know plays where you go. I'm taking my shot. That he's GonNa play the whole game and he's going to be a really good fantasy asset he if he plays his whole game he's going to be a good fantasy play. Yeah the hard part at the running back position. If you're if you're pivoting when you're playing you're playing guys like Sony. Sony Peterson layered. I mean would you. Would you play any of those three guys over James Connor I was only Pearson layered. You're probably not but I just to speak to your point. Jason Buffalo has not been giving up big fantasy point fantasy performances two running backs in in a while mile now and it was in matchups. Where you kind of thought that it was more likely that they would you know facing Baltimore Facing Dallas Facing Denver? Those are all match. I chips that you kind of thought would have been smashed. Played against them. They're just a really great defense. So I think you're sealing mix with the injury does bring some concern to Connor If you had any question about connor being active with this being a Sunday night game and they're not really being solid pivots. Benny Snell alone in this game against Buffalo. No no it's terrifying. I would go layered in the morning if I doubt about Connor and when you brought up those three names that's fair John Brown Coal Beasley. Like I said there's there's been quite a disparity between Beasley scored and six of Eight Games vulnerability if there is some on the steelers secondary side. It's to the slot position. It's is not on the outside Kobe. Think as you know not a lot of upside here either because the defense is so good the over under so low but I wouldn't like I'm I'm not favouring brown to Beasley. Let's put it that way as the Cole Beasley Truth or of this show. I don't WanNa play him now week. No I don't I don't want to either and you're not touching the tight right imposition dodges off the board jujubes not gonNA play. Basically you're playing James. Connor Devon single. Terry is unless you've got great options and then along. Did we in Josh Allen. Where are you with? I'm preferring to move away from Josh Allen. I know that the he's even great as of late. You're talking in the last five weeks Josh Allen The quarterback three but the pony played a bad defense and in Baltimore Baltimore a good defense a bad match up. Yes a good defense He was the twenty nine. Yeah Colts at six. Since seven saints at ten and three the Monday night football matchup saints eight point favorites to forty six and a half point over under drew brees as was the number one quarterback last week I feel like maybe as a kind gesture for years of playoff disappointments that we received even even when we thought he had great match ups last week. Had A horrible matchup. So you might have sat him. So maybe that isn't very nice right. Maybe that's pretty mean. This was epic troll. But I want to talk about the titans here because Jerry Facing Jack Joyal of the reality here is I mean. What's funny is the colts have been a pretty good defense against quarterback now last week you saw that Jameis Winston? The number two quarterback on the week torched the colts and drew brees. Tom and I for a while. Yeah so that's that's where I'm saying. I think I think this is. This is a match up. That should be pretty good for drew. brees one thing. We did see last week that I wanNA bring up and has raised my ranking ranking on Zach. Pasco is the fact that last week the saints got eviscerated by Emmanuel Sanders. who was you know? We talked about him on the show that Pascal's lining up in the slot ton. I mean they're over forty percent of the time Pasco has risks. I mean because mostly because he's Pasco go but there you can beat them. Yeah Yeah earlier on the week we had talked about. Is there concern going to him. What's going to happen? Marshon sunland more but the fact that Pascal's slot numbers are higher than I had recalled. I think that he's an okay. Play this week and you're going to have to keep about because we all assume that the saints will be able to score. Because they're able to score on everybody. Yeah they need to score more than forty six points to win though. That's one of the. That's what I've heard but they don't need Alvin Kamara to do it. Apparently now how many times has Alvin Kamara scored more than fifteen fancy points this year. More than fifteen. I'm I'm GonNa give you already seen the I'm gonNA guess three you'd be right. It's three times. It's not how many times he did last year. Sixteen Games of mine is. I'M GONNA say fifteen twelve twelve times last year. Yeah it's not been good and now this is a bad match up. I mean the colts against running backs our top five. They've got a you know a great run D on both ways right. The saints are top five the culture top five at stopping the run. They're they're both porous in the secondary which that usually means that there is a lot more game to play what I mean by. That is like when when their game kicks off and everyone else's game kicks same time. It's one of those where it's like. The the following aims are in the first quarter. And you're like the saints game still going. Yeah this is crazy. There's just so many plays that take place and this appears to be one of these match up so I think this is going to be a lot of fantasy points to pass catching options. Are you a fan of Marlin Mac. This week might A fair are you Marlin Mike this week like you like that one. He did like that one. Marlin Mike if you are in your Marlin Mac your Mike and Mike this week. That's a good. That's just fine. I mean something you would do. No yet is. Are you in on him or not. I'm in he's in my lineup on tomorrow Mike Marlin MIC. Yeah that's true. Yeah I'm playing him. Would you rather play Marlin Mac or Devon single terry because I see similarities. Malaria is both guys are really good. real-life running back. I'll take single terry. You'll take single terry can guess on the basis of just more receiving living work from time to time I would take on the basis of more points in the game. I I think this is one where you're going to have. I know you mean by team points but it sounds better. If it's like a slam like I'm taking on the basis he's GonNa score more fantasy points you know. That's what I meant so I think they're very very close. I do I agree with that I probably probably lean MAC man. It's very very very close. I do have I have single terry. Currently higher my rankings. What do you guys make of the news? That T. Y. Hilton has returned to a limited practice. Nothing yeah all right good for him. The colts aren't GonNa play him until he's one hundred percent and he's not gonna be one hundred percent by kickoff. Yeah Yeah it sucks Jack Doyle. He's always out there. That's one of his best features. Yeah I mean He. He's he plays on pretty much for all the snaps and they need pass catching options. I think Jack Doyle is a fine enough star. I mean he's probably got as good the options as any after the top six or seven times. Slowness idols a tight end. stickier Doyle Kazuki today. I don't know I'm GonNa Chase the points sixty and then we've mentioned it but you know it's Monday night football you need to be turning the right direction. Make sure that you're paying attention to the news. Pay attention to what we get out there on social media but on Monday night I really WanNa take the all men Kooks Kook Puke should have a touchdown in this game. I'm calling it now. He's GonNa do the Kook Kook in the end zone. Do you buy the view to the. We're talking all the stupid seasonal stuff going on. We're GONNA we're about to hop over and do our video radio for Youtube given away over twenty five hundred dollars worth of autographed sports memorabilia to listeners supporters that joined the foot dot com. Because I it's the giving time move year. It is then that made me remember like every year. My mom always drops off. Fresh Christmas Cues Oh delicious uh-huh ballers on on a budget presented by fan tool last week was a was a smash smashing success. Mike it was. It was so much so much smashing occurred. Yeah Segment Emmanuel Sanders. ZAC Pasco Ian Thomas where the ballers was on a budget picks last week. And guess what my pig is Ian Thomas again. I wondered if you. Oh yeah he is. Isn't there again. Darn right the price has gone up substantially substantially but Kyle Allen goes to the tight end position. This of course is if Greg Olsen is out. This is this hinges on on that. But Ian Thomas Fifty three hundred against Seattle. The second worse team against fans tight ends. We don't it doesn't get the love that it deserves because the cardinals are so so horrifically bad. And that's who everyone talks about but Seattle equally bad or slow just a little bit a little bit better but Thomas Fifty three hundred still a great price. Bryce yeah last week I went Zach. Pascal for sixty one hundred that worked out well this week guess what goes back. Pascal sixty four hundred the prices the dude hang the price is not update. I give you the price on Emmanuel Sanders but let me throw out another name for you here because because it's very rare. I hope you mean throw out like throw the name out into a trash. I'm going to throw the name out into the glorious listeners ear so that they can go in and win money on the back of a superstar. Oh you can't get cheaper. Forty five hundred dollars. It is the minimum on fan door and Justin Watson superstar. It's GONNA be. Here's the deal. If Scott Smith is active don't play Johnson thing is if like Gotti Miller Scott him to Scotty Miller is active. Don't play them but otherwise Oughta something Mike. Every time every time there's a feature. Yeah like a negative thing about Justin Watson. Jason looks at it like a cool feature of Dawson Watson for for instance. He's the cheapest of any possible wide receiver that you can acquire price wrong priced right. Yeah but no. Pascal Haskell is my legit one and if you WANNA go out there and win a tournament with just a glory play. That's Justin Watson of scholars is going all right. I don't mind I I think both of those were great. I can't go back to the well on Sanders. Although I don't mind is price. It's like sixty nine hundred last week. It was fifty nine hundred. I'M GONNA go with the Guy I think is a top five. Finish your pick and it's Chris Carson at seventy four hundred. That's three thousand less than Christian McCaffrey. That's the twelve pies that the running back position and it's behind. I cannot fathom ridiculously universe where I start over Chris. Cars Against Carolina. MOSTER is my start of of the week and I I there. There are shocking. That's shock there are only two players. I would possibly start over Chris cars in this week. Johnson Watson Justin Watson. They just didn't want. But you know Christian. McCaffrey Sure Cook. Sure outside of that. It's like there's other. I mean dare kin ry ooh. Yeah Yeah Henry Probably Holmdale with the most dirt love what is happening. It Gordon is cheaper than Rameau. sturt yea I I think. That's kind of wild. Jason is influencing some pricing cannot confirm nor deny just in watching going up to ten thousand. Just you just you. Don't miss your chance to win. An all expenses. Patriot participate with us.

Yeah still injury updates that have taken place since the beginning of the show. have an ingram not expected to play. That's not an update. That's a status quo. devante Parker Albert Wilson. Both practicing headed their non-contact red jerseys. So they've progressed a step in the protocol which is Great. It's totally not but somebody wrote down and that's not a word you just shedders. You don't audited a Jersey right tents go see red themselves snakes shed at his skin. uh-huh Jason Sitting there going. He did remind me underlying dot red. The Red squiggly doesn't let me emphasise. I mean give it with conviction yes added their non contact Red Jerseys. Yeah Justin Watson's GonNa have flooded the Defense Arner now shredded their Nankai. They put him in this But that's that's good. That's a good sign that they AAC can play Sunday. That doesn't mean they've passed but every single every single time when a player has had a concussion and then is active the following week this this is the process they go through and this is big breaking news. James Swinson has resumed throwing a football. Okay Great News. That's fantastic. Go James Our producers. I I 'cause we can't let this go. Producers are trying to bring blame Cameron Wolf that they just copy pasted the tweets way. Do we have to body Cameron Wolf. Is that what you're saying. Guess Did oh looks like you you just did you did Brooks Oh my goodness wait a minute wait a minute oh is it a word. Wait a minute here guys. I just looked up shed ed verb past tense shedded. What's has simple shedded and if you don't believe that I would never use participle? I'm clearly early reading this. This a word is your man. No No I. I don't think that's correct. I think maybe if you went to Home Depot and you went and built one of those things in the backyard you shedded your backyard okay. The grammar has as an article how to use shed versus shedded properly. Don't use a word. I did literally the words. Shed is marked as past tense as a verb. That is past tense. So why is the word. Should it exist because of people like Jason. That is it for this show youtube dot com slash the fantasy football. There's like I said. Is that video going up today.

Ken Barkley: Betting Golf & Esports

"Your NFL Games a little more interesting. You've come to the right place as the even money podcast with Russ, Tucker and Steve. Baby Vegas is the even money podcast and is presented by draftkings sportsbook the number one rated sportsbook, APP, I will be telling you more about it. A little bit later in the show on Ross Tucker former NFL, offensive Lineman, five team seven years journeymen. Now I've got a bunch of PODCASTS. Including the Ross Tucker Football podcast Booger McFarland Issue Brandt had been awesome this week. College draft podcast, which was fascinating, talking about multi sport athletes during the scouting process on the fantasy feast podcast tomorrow we will dive into the best ball format a little bit more, some tips plus the guy with over thirty years of experience and fantasy football I. Don't know if my co host Steve. Is quite there in terms of betting experience. We'll get to that in a second. You should be following him like I do on. Twitter at Fez exports the only two time winner of the Super Bowl of professional football gambling, it is the super contest at the West Gate 'cause, you know, get Ross. Tucker NFL all the shows available at Ross Tucker pod, our intern Casey. A Penn state figure skater is killing it on our twitter and I g this summer, so make sure you're following us on both at Ross. Tucker pod. Steve. Yeah, just about thirty years of experience twenty years now batting for a Living Russ. That is amazing, so greg brochures tomorrow I think fantasy sports have only been around for like thirty five forty years, and he's been around for thirty one of them, which is pretty cool I am very fired up about today's guest. He's a guy I've worked with over on the radio DOT. com side of things you better, you bet which is an awesome show I'll be back apart of starting next week. His name is Ken Barkley but most people know him as Laki locker sin, because that is his twitter handle or should I say this week can. Was At rocket mortgage sin. That's correct. Yep, we usually go with whatever the current PGA tournament is for the for the name this week. It's a little name. A name idea I I kind of just ripped from worldwide Bob if people follow him, he was changing his name every day so that it might as well do the same thing, and it's caught on with a lot of people, so can I worked with a couple of times over you better, you bet, but I must admit I. Don't know your background as well as I should so for Steve and our listeners. Listeners. How did you become a guy that's getting on my podcast? Getting on you better, you bet and making a name for yourself in the bedding world Dumb Luck. I guess it'd be the first answer, but really just My background is in TV production so I. I worked at ESPN for like more than a decade in production to work my way up to kind of like a middle upper management position basically, but was just grinding out. You know eighty ninety hour work weeks like no breaks. My kids were being born and I wasn't. Wasn't getting to see them very much. So I got super super burnt out with kind of the TV production lifestyle, and while that was going on I was kinda getting much much more immersed in interested in betting in general and being around, obviously worked on Van, Pelt. Sports honor for several years from when it started, and you know being around those guys and being around other kind of gambling content creators. That's kind of what made me want to get into this stuff, so the last really only the last about two years I've been taking this. This really really seriously. It's been interesting to be like a new arrival in gambling I. Mean I. Know Steve and he said you know thirty years in the space. The all those guys have a lot of experience and knowledge that I I just don't have it I'm trying to catch up and get there as fast as possible, so you know, but going really well so far golf has been you know a nice kind of beacon slide kind of time where there's not a lot going on, and it's been great to spend some time on that. So if you don't mind me, asking Ken before I have a bone to pick with Mr Physics. If you don't mind me asking. You know how much of what you're doing. Is Your your your compensation? If you will is on, the media ended things, and how much I read, it is you know from your winnings Steve I? Never actually asked you. The percentages I know Steve. I think makes more money from actual betting than he does from the media stuff. But I don't know. Can you kind of on the other side of that right now? Yes, so I I would never people might do podcast or I'm on media. Even if I've talked to friends, they're always like. Are you like a professional better and I say I'm definitely not a professional better, because more of my money comes from not betting than comes from bedding, and until until it kind of pivots and becomes the other way around. I don't think it's fair for me to kind of be like. Be Like I'm a pro. That's how that's how my family eats and all that stuff so I would say when I first left. Left obviously the ratios really low. I was probably you know eighty percent media, twenty percent, bedding or something, and that's basically gone up. You know kind of with each three to six month period as I kind of found more markets that I can attack as you just you just learn more about the space. You know how to avoid bad bets how to make good pets. You know when things are soft, obviously and things are going well, and you find something that you can hit it a bunch of times. You know all the all those kind of things like that. Will it'll? It'll waiver month to month, but I would say. Getting closer and closer to fifty fifty kind of as the months stick by. That's the best way I can put it. And Steve I never really asked us. You don't even need to give me percentages, but you do make more of your income from actual breading right Steve. Yes but I. have to tell you Ross we're at a point. Now is gotten harder to be a professional gambler. So at one time, most of my income was from bedding, and now it's much more varying by the year. At that fifty fifty level. What do you say that? Why are you saying it's getting harder? Every year the markets correct faster. The mistakes winds. Get put up the wrong example. steelers opened up week one minus two and a half, and now must three and a half, and that mice two and a half might sat out there for few weeks instead of a few minutes here in two, thousand, twenty, first two, thousand eight say. God okay, so everything's getting, and that's a product of. Balls more people are doing it more. It's it's legalized more places and so more people are able to jump on bad numbers. Are have taken this much more seriously. The PRO sports bettors and they have so much more dialed in to the fact that if they don't get to a number fast that numbers move example and Y'all this week. Number on what's the winning score going to be at got open seven and a half, which maybe feel is too high at if sorry, been pounded now the members sixty seven half play one eighty, and you might want at just one day ago. Don Aright. Can I and I'm going to pick that bones. Steve a little bit later right now. I want to get into Kens. Area of expertise I don't know can. If it's just because the virus, or whatever I don't remember a year ago, this many people betting off and this many people being this independent betting golf, but the consensus seems to be among people that are doing it now while this is awesome why? Doing it before I love this. It sounds like you've been doing it for longer than that. Explain it to me. Sure absolutely I so I. I will correct on the last part. I'm a new arrival to Gulf too, and it's just predicated by the time that we live in you know I, Bet I bet e sport right now like I bet I bet ten counterstrike matches last night, and I would never ever ever ever ever pre. Cova have bet ten counterstrike matches last night, but you go you go where the markets are open, and they take bets in the limits are pretty high, and you think you can find the dead. That's checks all the boxes. It doesn't matter if it's you know. Know Russian table tennis is obviously gotten a lot of publicity recently, too, but for me it was you know two to three months ago. It was trying to figure out okay I have like ten weeks eleven weeks to build something here. What sport do I want to try to identify that I could spend every night. You know eighteen hours a day for ten weeks to build out that I feel confident in. That's going to happen. In the next six to nine months and golf was like the only sport. I could come up with that. I really felt confident like I think. Think. This is going to happen I think it's worth investing the time into aside from sports, and obviously I mean it you sports, you can play remotely. There's no none of concerns are imply that. Are you know for actual kind of major professional sports, so I'm a new arrivals golf, too, but it was just by. It's the only thing that I thought was going to be around, so I just tried to grind on it as much as I possibly could and kind of see what the markets were like and know obviously like you scrape a bunch of data you try to draw. Draw some conclusions about the way the markets work, you figure out who posts who opens I. You know that kind of stuff like I. Think I've done a pretty good job of doing that, but I do agree with you. That golf is having a moment right now. Because just degenerate people and there are a lot of us, and we like to bet are always going to gravitate toward golf I. Think because there are so many markets open that you can bet on whether it's full tournament or after every single round, the prop market top five topped when all the derivatives. First Round leader, which is like people are just obsessed with basically right now because it's incredibly fun, it's like a rush so many markets to bet so many options you know for the casual better. That's always going to be really really appealing. I think. Yes so I guess my my question there is. How much of it's because golf is awesome to bet and how much of it's because it's like the only thing right now or one of the things that right now. I mean I think. Much, like a with any answer. It's going to be nuanced and it's. It's both right. It's obviously part of it is. That golfs really fun to bet now. I think you would get a lot of disagreement that it's really fun to watch from a lot of people that bet I mean. It's not the most exciting sport I think for a lot of people that you know if you bet college football. The NFL college basketball during March madness, the kind of like casual big-ticket markets, or whatever golf probably isn't as exciting but I think we were deprived. Deprived of sports for even just that small amount of time I think everyone got so rabid for anything resembling sports to come back on television that even golf, even a sport that kind of is notoriously boring, sometimes or hard to watch or not, very interesting takes forever even golf now it's like Oh, I'm just so happy. Sports is back. I think that's kind of the mind of the Sports Fan Right. Now where there it's almost like gratitude grateful to have anything to watch. Where even golf like yes, thank you. Thank you for having us on television. So. You said that you spent these eighteen hour days for weeks grinding on LAWF- scraping data. What what were some of the conclusions that you came to? So the first thing that you figure out I, mean right on. Day, one, when you're just like what are the limits in places by the markets that you can even bet on when when you survey that landscape, some things become very obvious, right away, and for the casual better might be surprising just because of what they like to bet on so head to heads, obviously as anybody who bets golf knows like head-to-heads are very liquid, efficient market meeting. You can bet a lot of money. Money into them and the hold is pretty low depending on where you bet so, you might see minus one ten each way in a bunch of places like four percent hold that means the sports isn't keeping very much of the money from that bet and you can bet a lot of money, so you know for professional better for people that are trying to kind of like you know. Find an edge and Gulf. That's going to be. Both kind of like a market. You need to look at seriously, but also understand your competition in that market, because of the limits is crazy high. So that's kind of like you know. That's like the pinnacle. That's like the top that's probably where choice given that it's also a sportsbook. That's the top of the mountain in terms of just like that's where a lot of money can be made if you can ever find an edge in those markets, the fund markets. People, that casualty would be surprised to find that the hold in those markets like the amount that sports keeps the amount. You have to overcome in order to wind'll. long-term when you're betting winner five top ten top twenty. Markets I mean those are, those can be a death trap depending on what the prices are in a lot of places that you can look, and you would have to hit a very high percentage to even kind of break, even and a lot of those because of how the sportsbook runs things so I think you know just as a surface level analysis. You know the first couple of days it's like I think a lot of people casual betters like to bet winner and top five and stuff when really they would probably be better served in their money would last longer if they would head-to-heads. So I. Don't know this for sure can, but I think from our conversations over the years about the masters or the US Open I. Think you might be preaching to the choir here Steve. Aren't you the one that you always like to fade certain players? Are you like to do? Head to head as opposed to WHO's going to win the tournament? Exactly, right and Ken Nail. It's all about your imply disadvantage. If you just throwing darts and guessing and if you lay in modest one ten on each golfer, you're gonNA lose four point five percents as opposed to. If you blindly, who's going to win a tournament now you're looking at. You're going to lose for every hundred dollars about forty percents or forty dollars, so because of that the hurdle to get over so much smaller, the head-to-heads make a whole lot more. And if you didn't know Ken, that's why I have Steve He always knows the numbers he always. You don't you don't even need me I. Don't even know I'm on the show this is. Happy to be here, so no, no, no, you. You gave tip about head to head and why you like it. He always actually knows like the percentage. I didn't how it works. Let's talk about. So. This is my issue a little bit when it comes to betting on stuff like golf. I really only like two guys. I like Brooks Koepka, I like my new guy. The shambo because I like guys and other sports that look like football players, so but I've seen the odds on Shambo this weekend. Yep, and he's like a heavy heavy favorite so I'm assuming it would be stupid. Bet on him. Well. There are two sides to the coin. I think a lot of people in in on my screen right and how would come on and say like no one? No one like Bryson should ever be six to seven to one to win a golf tournament. That just doesn't make any sense golf tournament valuable. There's one hundred and fifty golfers in the field. That's an answer that I've heard in several places, and it's and I mean it's. It the price, really low however. Just in simulating the tournament with an extremely weak field, and with Rice, and basically having it look at last twenty rounds last forty rounds the difference between him and even second third fourth best, Golfer in this field, and especially the difference between him, and a hundred and ten of the other golfers in this field is so massive, and he's actually been so consistent with the ramseys up since he's gained all this weight and has made him your favorite golfers. Actually, when I simulated actually got a lower price than the opener, so I think the openers were like six fifty sixty. I made them like mid threes, which is completely asinine I know but the numbers are moving in that direction like six hundred island in places. It was five fifty furlough big yesterday. So even though the price is so low Ross, and that might make it seem like a sucker. Bet To you, basically, at least the market so far is indicating that it actually should have been opened even lower them. Okay so then. Can you just explain this to me? The Guy was like an okay Golfer, and then He. Your way stump his muscle. Some is not and now he's an awesome Golfer. I don't follow that closely. Mindset though I like theory, but can you explain this to me? Sure absolutely. You're right, you know obviously you would probably be more. The health fitness side of this equation in terms of how the weight actually help them that much just from a purely golf standpoint and I mean there's a of bunch of tweets today and yesterday about his diet and like just. It's completely ridiculous like ten protein shakes. He basically just eats meals. All Day in the meals are very high calories. It's like it's like how I live my life. Some of the time except I don't have the results that that he has basically and. The big thing that changes obviously the importing about Bryson is. He's not just like a guy who was okay, and then gave a bunch of weight like his adjusted round scores prior to gaining weight like he was like a top ten top fifteen golfer anyway, and he also the thing that Bryson has that other people do not is sort of like a different kind of brain than everyone else has. He's obviously his reputation is nickname is the mad scientist of Gulf and part of that. That is that he sort of willing to try outlandish strategies irons that are all the same length like very very kind of weird trajectories on courses and shots and stuff like he's willing to try stuff. Other people don't kind of have the balls to try. Basically, and he figured out that if he could just increase his club speed or his ball speed rather to just an insane degree, the amount of distance that he achieve would give him such a bigger advantage than he had already. And this is the first course where that's actually gonNA come out in kind of a crazy way. The first three weeks they played on courses that are sixty, seven, hundred, hundred, sixty eight hundred yards, short courses, not as many par fives we we saw him. You know basically like drive the green on a par for almost a couple times because it's just it's. It's not like a perfect fit with his game and these smaller courses. Courses, it creates kind of awkward second shops, rays, hitting thirty yard, wedges and stuff because it just doesn't make any sense. He's like broken golf on a short course on a longer course where there's a six hundred thirty yard par five on this course. That didn't exist the last three weeks. You know how much more of an advantage tee to green. Is he going to get on that whole? Then everybody else playing. We don't really. Really. Know the answer because he hasn't done it yet. We haven't seen it on these three courses. I think that's another thing that makes him really fascinating. It's like another test of this strategy of his I'm going to gain all this weight. I'm going to bomb. It still obviously be a good Golfer I don't know how it's GonNa go, but I think really well would probably be the answer. Who are you betting this weekend? Weekend, what are your best this weekend? What are the tips shirts I mean? I have I have Bryson on the opener. Outright I mean I. You know I like five a lot less than six. I like six fifty more than six, but like you know I still I still think valuable and I know that sounds like a sucker kind of thing to bet a really small favorite. It's almost like a horse race if I said. Oh Bet the one to five favorite in this race. He's so good and we just know from horseracing that upsets happen more often than I i. just I still think the prices a little bit too too high on him. The derivatives on him or crazy, so I wouldn't really. They've just juice of Bolivia and he's like minus three fifty to finish in the top like they're just. The percentage chance that that actually happens actually isn't what the market is listening, so I bright into the only other guy I bet outright this week is take Hatton just in the tier of the second tier, guys and I. I mean it's basically Bryson and that about four or five other guys that have kind of comparable profiles you've got you know Patrick Reed and Webb Simpson obviously. Some people like Mazzi this guy. Get this tier of guys of that tier. I think hadn't short-term. Form is by far the best actually. He probably should have won two weeks ago. at colonial heritage rather didn't end. And just I think just again if all those guys are being listed about the same. Maybe a one to two percent edge on him. It's something like fifteen to one sixteen to one, so those two guys, and that's it for outright S- head-to-heads. I've been betting. I'm literally the reason people might be wondering why outside right now and I'm like I stay I have a bunker with computer makers, and TV's with no natural light and on Wednesday that is like head-to-head betting central, so it is just for this interview. I was like I'm just gonNA. GET FRESH AIR. Sit outside, 'cause I just stare at. Odds boards all day. Some head heads that stand out. That are still kind of around I'll. I'll give one I like icon fading Matt's Yama, this week and some of the guys he got put against. Patrick reads against him, and it's minus one ten each way I. Don't think that's particularly close. Actually think Patrick. It's more like sixty forty favorite against Matt's Yama. One that also, because Ross. I think you'll find it interesting. There's been a crazy amount of volume of people I've talked to. On the most obscure had bachelor. I think I've seen where I have. I have a ton of sharp opinion on both sides I. People telling me like Oh sides. Mark Hubbard against Chris Kirk has been a really really really highly bet head to head, which is incredibly funny. This openly about even each way I love Hubbard in the matchup and he's taken a ton of money, but every time it goes to a certain threshold minus thirty as one forty last night. It kept coming back down again and I was talking to my friends. I was like Whoa. Who is betting Chris Kurkim? This matchup like I, don't. I don't understand what's going on, I mean you would never think this was like tiger. Rory the way it was being bet in a bunch of places and I heard through the grapevine from a couple of people that there are some really sharp people that are out. Chris Kirk and I'm like well. This is gonNA be a bloodbath for somebody because there are people. People are just jamming into this thing thinking that they have a big edge either way, so if you're watching on on Saturday and Sunday or even Thursday Friday if they missed the cut, just keep those tuning in mind that there are. There are people out there that you don't know. That have very large sums of money tied up in Mark Hubbard Chris Kirk. Wow that's interesting i. want to get your thoughts on two more quick things sharing get Steve's reaction, but the sports like. Are you actually winning money betting on sports. There are a couple I. CAN'T I can't go into much detail here. Because some of the markets are really tiny, there are edges to be had. If you just, there's a lot of information. East sports that I think is tough to capture sometimes where I'll give you. This is sort of a bad example in terms of the result, but it example of just if you're paying attention, there's a team last night, so. Russell just ten second round counterstrike teams of five play each other. It's basically like best two out of three to play three different maps best two out of three wins playing five on five. Sometimes, guys will just randomly like not play. Don't require fill in players. They'll be crazy stuff like a team will play three matches in a row and play a fourth later that night, and just again, so if you are able to access information. Information sometimes there was a team that had to play their coach instead of a player last night, and they lost, but the idea is. They were like plus two eighty, and then they closed plus two hundred, so like knowing that allow you to get a lot of closing line value. Even though the vet was a loser, so that's just kind of stuff you're paying attention to you know you can kind of get some interesting edges. Like video game sixteen year, old information, which is just like a I can't even believe we're in a time where that is thing, but here we are, and there is kind of money to be made it to be honest. Okay, and then the last thing is can Ura you're a Patriots Guy, right? I am yeah. I grew up in. Massachusetts went to school in Massachusetts Until College. Literally Tom Brady's like their their first their boyer when he came in for Bledsoe Week Week three will be too when that started week three. That was my senior year of high school. So that's how long it's been. It's operated on. It's like staggering to think about that that his entire career has basically spend my life all right so I want to get into with Steve After we let you go Ken I'm GONNA get Steve. What he thinks of New England. They signed Cam Newton, but I want to get your thoughts i. AM trying to remove the Patriots rose colored glasses. I think the season win. Total number went from eight and a half to nine. Are you in the over? Hit The under our neither. Here's the advice I would give people on this There have been some very strong opinions on both sides of this one and I would just say what that should demonstrate you is that I think it's extra. This is a maybe all the teams this year. Maybe not all of them are a few other ones. This is one of the most volatile teams I think in terms of projected record that they could finish with without having a significant quarterback injury. Obviously anybody can get hurt and the team to go one in fifteen, but if everybody stays healthy. I still I think there's still like almost an impossible. Impossible team to project think Washington's like that Cleveland is like that. Where if I said they went four games. They went thirteen games. Would you really surprised either way given what we've. We've seen I think the Patriots kind of fall into that trap to the the Patriots have basically broken win total analysis of football the last ten years because they do everything that other teams do when they're about to be worse, so I mean by that is every year. The Patriots a an easy schedule compared to their competitors, but their division never gets any better, so it doesn't matter and they just win twelve games every year. The Patriots frequently have a way more takeaways than their opponent. That's always a harbinger of playing worse than season, except it's in in there coaching, so they just have a lot of takeaways, every or no other team does the Patriots of finished top five and takeaways like ten of the last fifteen years. It makes no sense. So we got all these things where you'd be like Oh indicator. That team's going to be worse. The Patriots have broken that every year so this year they have all the same indicators again and I have not one not one clue what the right number is for the same. No matter steadham. I have no idea Cam Newton. I probably have less of an idea. Because the number of games he's going to start is. Who knows so my vice would just be if you have a strong opinion on this team. I think this is like a really soft number. In terms of I, don't think anybody has any clue what the right number should be. So in that case what I'd say is if you like over under find an alternate win total on this team, even more than other teams like if you like like bet over ten and get a you know if you can. Can find for a dollar more dollars more if you if you think Cam's GonNa play two games like don't bet under nine minus fifteen like bed under eight and get another God, probably a dollar twenty at this point with how many people won't about over so again? Just look for those kind of out liar. Wacky prices play team. Way over way under I think that's going to be a better strategy with New England. compared to some other teams. Check him out on twitter at Laki. Locker sin guys spent eighteen hours a day figuring out of. Off just and says, and then just bet the favorite the big guy that you like Ryan I love it. I love it I eighteen seconds, and that was going to be my analysis. I'm dismissing your job. Take someone coming on the show. Thanks, guys appreciate Avenue. I gotTA tell you Steve. Before I. Get your thoughts on the Patriots I personally. I'm going to be going right to Dr. King Sportsbook to do two things one. To put some money on Bryson Shambo just because I love that dude and it'll make this weekend more interesting number two. I'm fading the Patriots. They're up to nine I. I liked the under can't wait to get your thoughts. Here's the deal. The rocket mortgage classic is this weekend.

This is exactly what you call saving best for last. I've waited all show to get your expert opinion. On what to do with the Patriots Win Total One or whatever now that they signed Cam Newton. All right well. If you like the Patriots to go over your better bet now as fast as possible, you can still get over nine. Lay a dollar ten because I. Think this numbers keep going up up and up. Why well let's look at the Patriots before they signed Cam Newton, they had Smitherman Hoyer. Those were my two lowest starting quarterbacks both quarterback I had rated thirty seven best in the NFL, so neither one should be starting at all I am twenty. Five. I have to tell you Ross every. Every national media guide disagrees with me. They all make cam better than that. Chris Simms may top ten quarterback. Think about that if I'm GONNA placing a number thirty seven quarterback with number ten quarterback. How much better is that team just tremendously better so even by my numbers? I HAVE CAM as low as anybody at twenty five and they probably have them too low. He played very well. The first half of two thousand eighteen before the shoulder injury. Big Question is, is he going to be healthy? I'm probably going to go under. I hear you. Though if he's named starter, then the belief will be. He's ready and he's good to go. I just feel like. The Carolina Panthers could have had them this year for eighteen million and if they thought he was health, you're going to play a high level I. don't see how or why. They would cut him and give Teddy Bridgewater over twenty million dollars a year. The. Redskins did try and all of the Cam Newton. Dwayne Haskins but CAM, getting the minimum he signed for the minimum with the Patriots could have been in Washington. Ron Rivera really. Himself just makes me wonder a little bit. I think it's a great move. By the Patriots, there's all upside, not a lot of downside, but I'll probably wait till it gets up to nine and a half, and then probably take the under would be my guest Steve Great stuff as always.

You get access to the APP you get access online. Jj presale pricing right now. Yeah Yeah Jason's very excited about it. I know that I I am. We've worked so hard. This quarantine season on Getting everything done APP is looking great. The I mean I'm I'm very excited Although also nervous about the time line just so much to do well. I mean most of the most years that we've had the ultimate draft kit. Were able to walk away from this dads for a little while but now or quarantine with them so it's close quarters with the stats constantly. You can't social distance from Norwich sheets. No every where a do some buy-sell buy or sell presented by PRISTINE AUCTION RIGHT BUYER SELL. Levian bell having a better fantasy. Finish in twenty twenty than he did. Last year for the record he finished as the running back. Seventeen in half points per reception leagues. I'm buying it. I'm buying it around now. I only have them ranked one spot higher than rb six. That's the by but it's a by and the price. The price will be so much lower this year unless we do something stupid on this show and change the price out. How dare you insinuate we do anything stupid? Yay Joke stupid for me. Stupid for me. Getting Bell is a a middle round running back value type of player so look if I love going running back early I love it. It's what I do every year but if you promise me that I got love Bill and David Montgomery in the middle rounds and I can load up on the best wide receivers and football. I would be tempted. I think those two guys represent interesting high volume middle around players. But Frank Gore's joining this team. Where do you guys have level by yourself? Yeah with with Frank Gore joining the team. Obviously being a year older I know they improve their offense of line and hopefully they'll have Sam darnold the whole year. Although if you look at the game splits he was actually a little worse than the Games. Darnold was playing. I have him at eighteen. So I'm I'm out of you and I have a one zero salary. Then he finished last year makes me officially a cell and I am a pretty strong by I have him just outside of my top twelve the like the the target numbers. I believe. We'll still fully be there. They will be intact. Frank or does really make me that nervous. May Maybe Gore comes in and takes a carry here and there and it's the overall jets often said I will buy as an improvement you had mono boy like win winless. Sam darnold actually healthy. I'd I don't know I guess I never had mono so. I have no idea how long it takes you to return from that but I can't imagine you go from being bedridden with mono like right back soon. Nfl field and be anything. Close to one hundred percent. Love Bell with three rushing touchdowns three point two yards per carry average last year. I think both of those things go up so I'm buying I'm GonNa buy the Levian Bell dip not that. I think he's returning to a top five fantasy superstar but I think he liking Andy if we're getting him in the fourth round that's unbelievable value. He only had three rushing touchdowns last season so there. Yeah there is There's an easy path to get better. I will admit that but obviously he's he's not getting younger and I I don't I don't trust office. I'm not getting younger. Like Frank. Gore is right. Frank is bill level. Did FINISH RB seventeen in fifteen games last year Mike you talked about Sam darnold improving last year to deal with the physical restrictions. I am curious how he will deal emotionally with being called mono boy moments ago. That may cost him some issues. They have have invested on the offensive line and it will be interesting. You know By the DIP. I think that's what at least Mike and I are saying. Yep N. Jason I. I tend to believe you think he will be value if you have them right around where he finished last year but the price goes down so yeah. I have no problem with Levy umbrellas. I mean he's going to be a solid rb to there's just so much volume there that if you get him you know in the third round her later. That's great a young high volume but disappointing David Montgomery or Lev Bell. Who would you rather have in twenty twenty right? Now I'll take live. I will check my rankings. We'll take level as well. I do too. I love a couple of spots higher. Just curious you guys want to do. So mailbag mailbag no motto. Right if you have a question for us you can go to the website. The fantasy football dot com. Click the submit a question button or you can dial our voicemail hotline three zero two four. Six Four T. Fafb wide variety of questions. Let's jump into it. Caleb on twitter. What is the best way to evaluate proven commodities for future draft picks in a dynasty League Davante Adams for example? How do you look at moving proven commodities and what kind of compensation Equation d bring to the table You know it's it's rare that I looked to trade proven commodities four draft picks. Almost ever You know I might use draft picks as an additive to go from one proven commodity to a slightly less proven commodity. Who's still it's still a veterans. I still know what I'm getting but it's it's rare for me to take someone that is solid You know we if you thrown out Davante Adams as the example this we're talking about really proven Komo. Yeah that's rough I'm never GONNA BE TRAINING THEM FOR DRAFT. Picks less complete rebuild. And they're old. You Know Julio Jones thirty one years old still carries great value still going to be a great asset this year. You should be able to get a draft pick. That's when I'll move off but you know Davante Adams has several years ahead of him when you trade him for the one. Oh one you're you're you're trading him for complete risk. I mean Nikiel Harry. Last year seemed like a just an unbelievable prospect first round pick goes to the Patriots. And it just doesn't you know doesn't always fall the way you you hope. Corey Davis comes somebody to in years past those players that drive that Hor guaranteed that whole draft. You at a Corey Davis Mike Williams and and John Ross. I think all those three guys wearing the same draft class. I could be mistaken but just because you're an early I wide receiver does not guarantee that you are going to hit. I will say a if you're trying to go after like a one. Oh one it's a running back being drafted in the top. Ten that carries a lot more weight to me because those guys are going to it not necessarily be elite players. They teams miss on their evaluation. But those guys are going to be given opportunity after opportunity to really fail. I mean even Leonard Fournette. Well they they don't they don't really fail at all. I mean they just they. They don't fail if you're if you're a top ten. Nfl running back draft. Pick you try. This and I think we all can say was. It was a failure. If you're talking terms of dynasty it was great for fantasy purposes. But he didn't continue here. Noces sustained success so if you had traded a player like devante atoms for a one zero one gun Trent Richardson. You'd be really upset with that. I think what we're saying here is what you're hoping for in these draft picks is to have a proven commodity. Someday so Keith. Well and the thing is in dynasty you are a like the Stock Market. You are looking for signals of win to unload a player before the wheels fall off. I mean that is how you get the biggest win. In trade anybody can craft a perfectly fair trade but if you move early at highest value before the wheels fall off if you move a different you know devante Freeman last. Yeah somebody that has maximum value and you can pick it if you're confident. That's the time that you can go do adjacent. Said get a player that slightly less proven plus a draft pick and maybe end up winning the trade in a big way. So twitter. Jeremy wants to know. What is the ceiling for Mike Evans? This year his feeling is. Mike's Ranking Mike. Take it away. So Mike Evans Super High to Mike Godwin Super High I do. I do have very high and my numbers. I don't believe there outlandish. Maybe it's just the way that wide receivers got ranks. Let me throw out my projects for him. And you could tell me if you think that that's as as a grievous as where you think his final ranking and so I have met seventy eight receptions for just over thirteen hundred yards and nine touchdowns. That's that's A. That's a lot of receptions I've got him in seventy four seven last year and thirteen games. He am right there with Mike on the reception. Count I think it's a question of you know you've got him with three hundred more yards than I do. It's a matter of will brady go deep deep as often so I you know I've got him dropping You know he's seventy point three yards per reception. I've got him down. You know in the fourteens Which is which is still good so i. It's just a matter of what you think Brady is going to do. Systematically it feels like Jason. You and I were talking about this. And maybe we expand this conversation to Tampa Bay as a whole I know we'll be doing some Ranking analysis the explain yourself. We'll probably talk about it then too but when I look at possible outcomes for Tampa Bay for Tom Brady. You know he's got something to prove. Bruce Arians does not limit the offense he likes to throw. The football in Brady has something to prove. So you've got narrative street on that side. Where look it's been awhile since? Brady's top to your fantasy quarterback three years but all the weapons are there and the coaches there and the chip on the shoulder is there and Gronkowski's back so narrative street says that like I just don't see a real middle ground outcome for Tampa is my point. I feel like you either have brady regressing as as the aged quarterback and it just doesn't come to fruition in Tampa or you probably have a pretty high performance high touchdown high efficiency type. A year from Brady. Do you see a middle ground for him where he just kind of moves the ball away produce for fantasy owners. I think he stinks. If he's lost a step he'll be okay for fantasy just because of the weapons But yeah to to answer. This question. Mike Evans ceiling would still be top six wide receiver. If it just so happened that he ends up with the targets and the touchdowns You know I've got Brady Crazy High. I was you do. I've got Brady as my quarterbacks six I am spicy Razi. Very very high. But when you've got when you've got Godwin and Evans and Gronk and how one thing he doesn't have his his pass catching running back or a a proven pass catching running back. Yeah we'll see what keyshawn mom can do. It's just I think we assume the passing volume will come down in some capacity and we want it to be made up for with efficiency. Lavigne's has had a what regression in multiple years running in terms of The target totals. So it's it's a it's kind of a crapshoot with Brady mean I. I'm not gonNA pretend like I know what he has left in the tank. But he's got all the weapons to be successful. You know I'm not GonNa lie to you. This is this NAS narrative but watching the Jordan documentary has has given me there. Are you know there are just certain guys the make up the metal behind the scenes is the Jason? When you're talking about the goat we are talking about the greatest of all time in basketball on the greatest all time in football. I'M NOT GONNA. I'M NOT GONNA bet against Brady with those weapons. They have not made a wizards documentary. Michael Jordan okay okay. We haven't got to episode ten yet. We'll see that's very. That's a very fair calm. You don't want the wizards year. That's wait until episode. Ten comes out and see how far brady drops down. Part is that team could win with a Mediocre Brady. I mean it could be successful with him just protecting the football We'll we'll see what happens. Dynasty trade question from Texas Marine in Austin Texas. Well that makes sense Mike Evans. Are Josh Jacobs. In a half point per assumption dynasty Lee Oof Oof Dynasty. I am going Josh. Jacobs I am too. Wow it is surprising. Because I'm I'm so much I'm turning twenty seven years old. This year Evans has never had under a thousand receiving yards in a season and his career. Look I totally understand that I would love to have Mike Evans Dynasty. But if you're telling me you know the twenty-seven-year-old seven year old versus the twenty two year old. I notes running back the careers not as long but I look at it and I say the same age in terms of like player years. They're the same age. That's exactly my point. I think both of these players have three amazing seasons ahead of them. And so you take the running back. I'm GONNA take the running back if they're about there and we'll have a different quarterback at some point exactly like Brady is okay. Two seasons from now three seasons from now a is he still tied to Brady Brady playing. They'll just James back next year. Sure maybe and he'll have a year learning under drew brees but I do have Jacobs ahead because the age twenty two years old. He's he's amazing. Let me let me ask you. Does this. 'cause I've been firmly on team Josh Jacobs? If you've been listening to the podcast with the off season but these moves that the raiders. Just keep making at the running back position specifically with guys that are pass catching running backs. I E you bring Jalen Rashard back okay. I'm not super concerned. You've got to have people there. But now they add devante booker like we'll Josh. Jacobs actually be unleashed to the player that we believe that he should be. Maybe the raiders. Just don't don't happening. I think he will be Devante. Booker doesn't scare me they They have to add death. You all do win bugged junior. Yeah drafted him. He's going to be one of those Jack of all trade guys but they did lose the Andrea Washington. He had forty plus targets. So I've got Jacob stepping up not to wear want him to be you know I want him to be one of those seventy eighty plus target guys have got him with fifty five but yeah I mean that that alone will will make him a an OPPORTU. Your back okay. How's going to go check out my fifty three fifty three targets so dealt with injuries last year. Great running back I it is all I just. Don't it's confidence. It's which is he. One of the big breakout candidates this year. I think I think he's still list. I think he is as well as would you do you? Trade a an elite wide receiver for a running back where you can get running backs in the draft. You were you happy with Mike Evans last year. Without passing volume. I know this season that he had. But were you happy with Mike Evans Ozone? Even if I think you're rankings crazy Mike it's still possible gives that ranking and you're not you're not even you're not as m as you might be somebody. It was very Amari Cooper in the sense that he was boomer. Bust hurt a lot of people a lot of weeks when he was in. Your lineup did nothing. And then he'd go out and have three touchdowns and seven thousand yards on a game I I think the consistency will be a little bit better with Brady Your point is valid. Andy all right. Instagram question. From Peter he says best and worst corn meal that you have made yourself. Ooh that was cereal with water That's easy now the best. That's also easy birthday week. We got filet mignons. We got home mashed potatoes. We got rise. Aronie we got stove top stuffing. I don't even remember dessert. I was barely alive at that point. Fear testing the best part of your own. Truman show complex. Jason is that you just say birthday week as though the world knows what you're talking about. Yeah well like everybody everybody entire week where they are but they know about you know my thing. Yeah the week you enslave your wife for the Week. That my wife or myself. Whoever's birthday it is gets to be King or queen of the world in a home so we get whatever we want at all. I I can tell you the worst quarantine meal I made myself was Thirty minutes ago when I when I took my time to cut fresh slices a sour dough pilot high with fresh lunch meat. A fresh sliced cheese to just a going well made sandwich. And then I took a bite and I said That doesn't taste right and then. I took another bike and then I took another by and then I said I must stop this because the new mayonnaise that I had just placed on the sandwich was quite expired. All know you use fresh enough times that I had a feeling. This was not going to be a fresh sandwich. The sandwich was ruined and I was quite unhappy. I'd go throw it away after I saw that the date was sometime in the back. Part of two thousand nineteen and. Yeah I mean has your tom-tom well. Td TV pretty read advantage vanishes halfway through the show. You not yeah. I'M NOT GOING TO BE WORRIED ABOUT. I'm GONNA check the dates unknown so Might do you have any candidates here for this question? I best meal Burgers is like Burgers. A and worst meal Man. Nothing's standing out I'll think about it. Maybe we'll circle back to it now. You're still doing the quarantine thing where you're pumping iron eating donuts right. That's the Oh yeah. It's name is mostly not donuts. It's mostly Like edible cookie dough which they sell now doughnuts. Do there has been donuts there? But you the doughnuts in edible cookie dough yet. I don't know if you could. You would have to scoop the client on the book there. Is I still have one? Donut left and I still have cookie dough left so I think I know what night him not around next week. Everyone knows as died as I lived. I don't WanNa get too far into the rabbit hole of explain yourself here but who knows we'll just let it happen twitter question from Kyle. Who has the better season this year? Juju Smith Schuster or Devante. Parker Juju Juju for me. That's that's that's going to be easy. I think the quarterback situation is more assured even though there is some question with the bins health And you've got more success in the in the past then parkers at. Why Have Parker higher than you? I would say that if you looked at our individual rankings and you had to pick you know three or four significant takeaways the Brady ranking for Jason would be one The Hopkins ranking for Mike which he has them down in the in the teens would be one happy every in I have. Juju not worth the draft capital in my ranking so we can talk more about that on the next episode of the show. Fair instagram question. Gosh now we're doing it again. Another one who would you prefer Dynasty Juju Smith Schuster or one of the rookie wide receivers. This is a more difficult question because Juju was very young and whether he stays in Pittsburgh or whether go someplace else I don't I my ranking is not you know some catastrophic indictment of Juju Smith Schuster's ability. I've said on this show multiple times. It takes a special town to put a fourteen hundred yards. They don't care. Ap's on the other side or whatever the case may be so I. It's hard to take someone who has an ever broken out in the NFL. Yeah over someone that has when they're bombing. I had Juju. I just had to say Juju now I hoof sanity prevails. Thank you yeah. It goes back to that first question but it's just man last year is so rough. What what it is done to the Pittsburgh steelers in our perception of them for fantasy like we are were not very removed. From Pittsburgh just pumping out superstars everywhere in one year. Big Ben goes down for the entire season all of a sudden. We're all scared of Pittsburgh. It's very strange if big been went down in his age twenty nine season. I don't think we'd have the same worry that we have now. You're probably right though the also age for Big Ben. That's where you're concerned is a combination of of a lot of things. It's it's a lot of things. Well it is. It's the defense as well that really I mean I mean side of the football team. It's it's the emergence of other players is the. It's the fact that Big Ben had more mediocre seasons a fantasy quarterback then he has elite seasons so your banking on a lot for them to just put up a bill. Ab Big Ben Healthy offense as the identity season. So I just not making that bet so you you have the entire teams identity just that last year that that's a complete transformation for you. That's now who they are. Even though no big Ben was over five thousand yards through the air. No it's not. It's not that there isn't a possibility that they have A. I mean they're going to have a better offense of Sir no matter what guarantee defense is still going to be great. I'm not saying that they know. But what I'm saying is that there is a higher than I'd like percentage chance deontay. Johnson is a better year than Juju Smith. Schuster and I'm going to be paying a whole lot more for Juju and a draft. When I don't want that chance to be that close that I'm drafting the wrong guy that I drafted a guy in the third round that and I could take somebody else that beats him out. Fantasy wise in the ninth tenth eleventh round. And that's a real possibility in my opinion so Not In your opinion though and not in Jason's base makings and was fine. That's a that's a player to make a bet on. I mean that that's totally fine. We don't see it the same way and I'm not willing to make the take the risk after what I saw last year. I not I look the best thing for me is I. I saw nothing last year. I saw I don't even know what I don't know what offense you're talking about the US rankings would say you last year from your mind. Harry Carey writes in and says does the addition of Deandre Hopkins scare you off of Christian Kirk Dynasty Leagues Or Make Him a potential Bilo. Low candidate you know what kind of scares me off. A little bit was the willingness and the and the rumors of you know him being shop and looking for you know moving him. I don't know how much validity there was that but it was surprising that you know moving forward Krisha Kirk as the two on a high pace offense I. I'm not scared off of Kirk. He's young he's been successful in the NFL. Larry Fitzgerald's is GONNA is GonNa go away. So I like Chris Kirk but I do do either of you. Worry about those rumors around the draft. Yes that the cardinals were shopping Christian. Kirk yeah I worry about Christian Kirk my answer to this is i. I'm scared off of him. In Dynasty Leagues. I think the window for him to emerge as a an Alpha type of player is gone and they've talked talked about getting rid of him and they have lots of other weapons on that team. So I am scared of the Christian Kirk. If I'm remembering correctly he was a came and Larry finished almost neck and neck in total targets but Christian Kirk played thirteen games so on target per game basis. Chris Kirk was the number one of the offense. Yes without the Andre. Yeah for seven hundred. I mean just saying that. They were trying to turn him into that. I don't know he's twenty two. I mean I think it can be a good too on on any team in football. I just don't know if he's reminding Zona of like when you when you traded for a couple of years ago the thoughts that people had about Sterling Shepherd. That's kind of the the type of player that that's an excellent comp. Maybe we saw him as is going to be a fine player's GonNa help you and fantasy But but you know Andy's one hundred percent right like his chance to Alpha's that's Gone Alpha's here it's options. Elvis Ryan says who finishes higher in twenty twenty as a Baker is Brady schoon. We've all got Brady. I'm pretty sure I'm just laughing because of the top six or whatever it is ready for Jason just moved up. He's number two. It's CRA- It is fun we. We've we've shared this in the past You know we we. We do our early projections. Are Rankings where we just. We're sorting guys based on our are feeling our gut history knowledge of fantasy football but then when we get into the ultimate draft kit work and we are standing every single team out all the way doing deep dive research on every player. It's fun at the end and sometimes scary to just see where the stats say players. Lie because it's not just a matter of the player you're starting out but all the other players around him as well you might love a guy and he has a good stat line and he's you know eighteen seventeen other guys you know. Look like they're going to have a better season so I was really surprised when Tom Brady. And a high but I've got Baker at Sixteen Brady at six. I doubt that if I looked at the The stat line for Brady I would be you know I would find it unreachable Jason. It's just me knowing that with him at sex. I know what players are back behind him. And that's that's where it's it's more It's interesting to me. It's really about touchdowns I think is is with Brady. Got Forty six hundred yards thirty five touchdowns a fire on his interception. Count Fourteen interceptions. That's a that's a dandy season. It's very good one but not impossible by any. We'll save for Baker. He will have a better season this year than last it. Does that mean he can bounce back to looking like he is a top dynasty quarterback that I don't think I can answer and you're saying that from a fantasy perspective. Yeah see I think. I think he's GonNa have a better. Nfl season. I'm not sure that defense offense that will translate to a better fantasy season or not. That's I'm curious. I have him stand for about fifty more fantasy points which is not an insignificant number this season than than he put in last season so that would put him at fifty-six on the year so quarterback sixty all right. Here's a great. Would you rather question from bret the Hitman Fart in Portland by the way I very class I saw video bread? The Him An- heart very recently any is quite old. Would you rather be Roger Goodell or atom gays got author? Cadel you give me the lower over the entire League It's not close. I mean if you here's the other thing. Compare these two guys a sense of humor. I mean I'm GONNA BE THE COMEDIAN ROGER. Goodell you know what I mean. Yes who would you rather be? He's paid quite well the commissioner of the NFL handsomely all right. How Far Will Philip? Lindsay's production drop says from an instagram listener. Rosie rolls my house says how far will has production drop was the highest. Y- you would draft him my rankings. Were not kind of Philip Lindsay. You Two Gentlemen I. I don't know what to do with with the Denver. Backfield I feel like Jason is bullish so a more bullish about Melvin Gordon. It's so bizarre. Because I I had just message to our company slack about I wrote a blurb for Melvin Gordon for for the ultimate draft kit. And for that you know. I'm looking at the two stats Philip. Lindsey has half of the rushing yards of the career of Melvin Gordon. If Melbourne's five year career Philip Lindsey has half of the production in two years and the Denver. Broncos were like. Nah We need Melvin Gordon. It's so bizarre to have a a running back. You're paying him like no money and he's just super productive for your team. Wow that I can't read. What the Broncos WanNa do that's where the nuance matters though because you saw production Philip Lindsay. Yes the in`mass full season productions great but as the season more on he wore down and his production more down especially looking back a couple of years ago. They felt they needed that kind of bigger back. And they don't WanNa pay Lindsey big money. It's an interesting situation. I Have Lindsey down at thirty seven this year. I've got Melvin at fourteen. I I find out three. I even at thirty three. I've Melvin Gordon at twenty four. But it would've what I mean is Lindsay has been excellent for your team for two years. I don't I I can't argue with that. You could see him wearing down. You could see the efficiency wearing down. The big explosive plays where were not there as frequently so get him a compliment. If you think that Royce Freeman is not the complement get him. Get him that bigger body compliment but it feels like going out and getting a player. With the name of Melvin Gordon. Giving him that contract. It seems like you're trying to replace Philip Lindsay. Yeah it does feel that way for Sir Lindsay. That's yeah they're trying to get a star running back in there and then they think Philip Lindsey can be a really good too and they realized they didn't have a one so they had like a to a to be situation And so yeah. I'm I'm the most split I think. Got A Melvin Gordon. Fifteen Lindsay's down in the forty s So I I had a hard time catching up to this question though because I I went on a little a little rabbit hole on the goodell salary. Oh Yeah it's decent Believe last year he made fourteen million dollars which is also known as more than any player. The highest paid player does not make that in a season. Be Good deal. It's probably underpaid. He's not in the threat of. He's not in the papers. The New York papers every week. Same shall we fire this guy? He's job's pretty safe. Yeah it is there. There are only a handful of that running back to player that. Look if if Melvin Gordon went down right if if Nick Chubb went down the Lindsay the the Kareem Hunt like these guys have an opportunity to be a sure hugh I guess hunt would be a lot higher value. He'd be a top. Yes in place. It would go back to what he was last year. Which is okay. The an Royce Freeman would still have a role and they're probably never going to do more with Lindsay than what we've seen in the past and they're probably going to do a lot less with him so I'm just very excited for us to transfer over how we felt about the chargers which is watching them every week. Saying why are you continuing to give Melvin Gordon? The ball off an editor is dominating. I'm excited to just have that. Exact same conversation for For DENVER WHEN GORDON IS INEFFICIENT PHIL? Wednesay's looks like the better. They will keep giving him the Gordon. They will for sure The Carlos Hyde effect Who SHOULD I keep? Joe Exotic in Saint Louis has a question he says strike Dalvin in the second round Or Miles Sanders in the sixth round. Oh Man I the value for the potential breakout. Why I mean he kind of had. A bit of a mini breakout except we. We've talked about on the show that the eagles have been linked to Carlos Hyde. Who was the one name where I'm like man? I really hope that. The Eagles don't sign Carlos Hyde. They haven't signed him yet. But there's at least some rumors flying that Carlos will be there and to me that's if high assigned by the eagles that's a very big hit two mile sanders fantasy production. Jd would would you see it that way or would you still be real bullish about Santos I would see it? Exactly that way right now got mile sanders as an rb one. He's my running back. Twelve and if all of my rankings were one hundred percent perfect and I would take you know the the the twelfth running back in the six round in the draft another you know high in running back but I have very my my confidence meter a mile. Sanders is not quite as high. Because I just don't believe that. The Eagles want to make him the bell cow. I give a lot of credit to Doug Peterson. He uses his personnel to the best of his ability. So it's just so that's why he's an rb one right now because this is their personnel. But I'm going to take Alvin Cook in the second round. It's still really good value because Dan Cutter isn't just a first rounder. He's a top five pick in the first round. So you still have your first. I'll take down in the second. That would be the way I would go take Dalvin in the second. I'll take Dalvin in the second. I'll do my cooking by the book but I will say that What Philadelphia wants to do with Backfield? They didn't have a choice in years past. Whether it's Corey Clement Ryan Mattheus. Jj Luxair Blind. These are not players that you you can't make those guys you're cow you could make a mile sanders your bell county wanted to you. You know he was the guy until he got injured and then Sanders became the guy if Carlos Hyde is signed by Philadelphia. What what happens to your rank of miles sanders I Have Mile Sanders at twelve right now and it would it. Would it would slip down. Benita a handful of these guys I you know what do you take Mile Sanders with Carlos Hyde in the fold or do you take bill so in that situation I'm probably question the whole probably GonNa go mile sanders there. I find the most fascinating group people around him by the way people. My miles is all over twitter. Everyone wants miles to be the next Christian. Yes here his first season and and you know but the difference is the eagles never drafted Mile Sanders to be Christian. Mccaffrey you know he wasn't a top ten. Pick in the draft away Christian was but the most fascinating running back to me this year. I don't remember any year the you know invading where you've had so many superstar running backs who are all in like lousy situation's a little bit older but not old busted. You Got Todd Gurley. But the Gordon Dave Johnson and love belt. Those four guys are so fascinating to me where it's talking about. Mile Sanders versus that four pack. And I think if maybe maybe not Melva Gordon but you know Those other guys if Carlos side came in I think I'll just take the safety of of those others. Yeah Yeah I it. It'll be interesting. I hope I hope he doesn't sign there because it's been nice. You know with the draft having some clarity of that backfield and being able to have a little more confidence in miles sanders than we had so all right that does it for the fantasy football.

That's one hundred and fifty deputies. Total will be issued body worn cameras. All three hundred deputies with the agency will also be issued a new Taser through this system purchase, which will cost two point seven million dollars over five years again, according to the sheriff's Office, the total program cost also includes hiring a new records technician who will be responsible for managing and releasing the footage last year sheriff. Sheriff Justin Smith directed the agency to move forward with a body, worn camera system from Exxon as well as a new cameras for interview rooms and patrol cars to tie the entire system together. The specific package was selected for several reasons. It includes something called Exxon citizen, which allows the agency to easily collect and store videos taken by citizens and citizens can submit photo or video evidence through a Web. Web Link the plan also comes with the ability to activate deputies body worn camera with thirty feet when a deputy activates an in car camera takes their firearm from their holster or arms their teaser. The sheriff's Office policy is to have deputies record interactions when enforcement actions are likely. The agency's policy also includes directions for supervisors to verify. Deputies are using the equipment properly by periodically viewing random recordings. Now the new system will also come with docking stations for each deputy, allowing them to charge cameras and download videos remotely as well as have the cameras available. If they need to respond to a call while on their way home or into work now, this announcement of course comes less than two weeks. After Governor Jared Pola, signed a police accountability bill crafted by State lawmakers in the wake of George. Floyd's death at the hands of those Minneapolis Minnesota police officers now among several other things the law, this police accountability law also requires all law enforcement officers to activate cameras, either on their bodies or mounted to their patrol cars during any interaction with the public, the law also applies to jail deputies who are about to perform a task that requires an anticipated use of force Colorado. Law enforcement agencies have until July first two, thousand, twenty three. Implement these changes now interestingly enough. Fort Collins police services began testing body worn cameras back in fall of twenty twelve, and began more widespread implementation of body, cameras and January of twenty thirteen in July, thousand, eighteen by the way loveland city council gave the Loveland Police Department the go ahead to test out a body worn camera system. The department began implementing body Worn Cameras Tennessee Tech. In mid twenty nineteen. Accountability transparency. I think this is a good move. How about you?

Top Rookie Picks + Mailbag, Scratch That Itch!

"Welcome to the fantasy. Footballers podcast with your host. Andy Holloway Moore and Mike Reid. Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome to the PODCAST. The fantasy football podcast. If you're nasty I'm your host Mike the Fantasy him and right joined by two great friends of mine. Who Thank you for putting me on the same level as the one and only Jagr is. Why Senate two great friends? I didn't say I have one best friend. The one of the great friends could have been brooks. Oh that's true. It's not yeah I mean of course best friend of today's show Jason more subject. What's going on? I'm excited to get to all of the user questions user Zet what. We're calling several. Yeah that's that's what they call them users. Would you like to use her? Our fantasy football metrics and tools users of this podcast. Fuck land the one and the foot clan which let me just those out. We are more often just repeatedly reminded how awesome the foot clan are like You know last week. And he had dinner with David Johnson Posts. A A tweet instagram post out there. And you always worry you know. David Johnson down year. And you're like Oh man are the troll's GonNa come out at comment on those who you know but everybody was awesome. The I'm just saying you let's by defacto. You're a good person beautiful. Ause you listen to this show. Today's show is all about the USER QUESTIONS. We're going to be hidden foot. Glenn Mail bag remember. You can check out this show in the visual forms on Youtube Youtube. Dot Com slash. The fantasy footballers if you like what you see and you wanNA see some more. Maybe a fall that INSTAGRAM INSTAGRAM DOT com slash fantasy. Football as you can follow me overrun. I G at F F Hitman. Jason is at Jason F. F. L. j. The quick question of the day posts combine. Because we're no longer pre combine. We are posts. Who is your current one. Oh one in a dynasty rookie draft. It's going on right now. It's the same guy who was the one. Oh one in the nineties is Jonathan Taylor. Thomas J T T. Jt was was number one on your board. What everybody's born like teen BOP right on Tiba? No Jonathan Taylor. Thomas Ju- Yes. Jonathan Taylor Thomas Taylor to me. After the combine proved look his production and college. If you're not familiar out of Wisconsin he was a back to back two thousand yard rusher and really caused a Deuce deuce. I think he was like thirty three yards in his rookie year. Away from two thousand yard season something like that so he's just dominant beasts but you wonder okay you know he's not in you know maybe it's competition maybe it's just volume but then he goes to the combine and just dominates and at the common. He looked like a tier two himself and not. Everybody was there. But you know D- Andrea Swift a lot of people's WanNa one did not you know obviously didn't measure as well. We don't overdo the combine here. We don't think well a guy has point. Oh five seconds faster on the forty. He is a better football player. That's dumb but he just really impressed me and and you know sometimes when you watch a group of these guys together you just see who the Alpha is. Who's the leader? I remember you know. Obviously when when it was SAQUON zere coming in everybody knew. Oh this is sake one but he took charge of the group of running backs. That's how it felt this time. It was like John and Taylor everybody else now. Landing spot could very easily change for me. Because we were talking before handwrite. And my worry with Jonathan Taylor from a fantasy. Football perspective is because he wasn't utilized as a as a pass catching running back slowly. You know he season receptions in his final year over ten percent targets are pretty good numbers but he's such a strong runner power game that I worry you know the team that drafted him. Are they going to be wanting to be one of these Tennessee? Titans type teams that wants to ground and pound. Slow the game down you know. Look I like my fantasy players on high flying quick snapping. Throw the ball to the running back in both rowing quick snapping. Yeah I you know so that. That's the one concern. Right is is a high power high flying offense going to say that's the type of running back. They want because he's super talented. What about you? It's Jonathan Taylor for me at it. It is Wisconsin so I wanted to ask you about the Wisconsin. Curse of you know the wink wink. Like the madden curse of running backs. Coming out of Wisconsin. Now Melvin. Gordon has had a pretty successful career and I wanted to bring that cop of same school. I'm not saying that. The same player by any stretch but Melvin. Gordon wasn't considered a pass catching running back in nineteen receptions in his final year before getting drafted high in the first round but his landing spot turned him into a pass catcher. And what we have. We have both washed of Jonathan Taylor and film is he can get the ball. He's he's a smooth pass catcher. It's not a struggle for him so if he lands somewhere where they're actually gonNA throw him the ball. Jonathan Taylor could be just an absolute dynamite for fantasy football. Yeah I mean I I really genuinely believe. He has the a a absolutely fine skill. Set to be a receiving back like comparing him to Leonard. Fournette winter came out a couple years ago. Some people were out there saying he can catch the ball. He's fine and I back then said okay. He has the ability like he's not. He's not elite at that skill. And you look at this past year I mean. He caught the ball a ton he was. There you know with the you know the there were like three running backs with more targets or receptions than than him so but you didn't get that fantasy value because he's that fluid second nature receiving back. I do think Jonathan Taylor could be that. Now I see are dark. I assume brooks put this in here for people playing in two quarterback Super Flex Leagues. Yes sir what would the would would that. Change the answer of who you a draft at the one in rookie draft. Maybe I mean it might still be. Jt Not for me now for me is not a maybe it is a probably not gonNA TAKE. I presume Joe Borough with or to sure I I would not take them with the first four or five picks even in a house I there are. There are several studs at the top of the draft both at running back and wide receivers that I think are going to be great and at quarterback you go okay. Boroughs a good prospect. Very handsome going to the bengals. You know it's like okay. Is that the best to Oh man fantasy he can run the HIP Dolphin. I'm not gonNA take those guys over the counter. The sure thing. Yeah do you know off the top of your head or maybe have the list of your number two and number three running backs my number two number three would be swift and Dobbins okay in that order still still still right now. I'm sitting with Jacob Dobbins as number two guy and yonder swift will be number three for me but landing place like talk about so much landing place draft capital that factors into things that factors into things Far More than something like the Combine O. Four sure we've had years in the past where a guy I loved is just taken off my board just completely or Alex Barnes ex exactly Alex Barnes. Nfl draft. Look Great Rodney Anderson. Oh man loved. That guy did look. He's still going to be hall of fame ballot but we know what happened to Rodney here and we were not sure what happened to barn crumbled. Not much news going on unless you WANNA talk about the Tom Brady Bill. Belichick phone call which allegedly news. But here's here's the problem with that. I don't think contentious well it didn't go well or it wasn't productive and I think that gets blown into like Jerry here you do you throw there but what. I was going to bring up. Is Bill Belichick speaking on the phone? Now Ev- everyone has a different phone voice. I don't know if you realize this. But your phone voice compared to normal talking voices very different. You are a just a really subdued sound like you are in full on mega chill mode. Oh really yes. I'm just like what's up man. Yeah interesting I thought I would go the opposite. I really like serious on the phone. No you're you're you reach this point that you sound like you're just in a lazy boy how it happened to him when I answer my phone. Just you have your mobile phone on you and then your mobile lazy boy. Well you're in the middle of these plop down. It's either a lazy boy or a bathtub. Which by the way I have been almost every night about. Oh Beth take a bath man. I'm a bath man now. Are You EPSOM? Salting the amount of absence salt in my bath is illegal in some states. I'm glad we live in Arizona where they don't have rules against the I mean it's it's pretty much. I pour a cup of water into the salt and then I sit on top of it. That's what I do. Is that bad for your pipes. Probably to not good albor. Land Resident Handyman. Do you know if this is bad for his pipes. It's got to be. Yeah sounds all right. We'll take that as the gospel. Let's get into the mail. Bag mailbag very nice. Yeah we're like a choir hopped in with you. See I feel like I can be a backup singer. Okay but if you put me front and center. So you're like like at Amari Cooper of singing a song number. Two Nice shot shot across the bow. Their Someday Amari Cooper is going to hear these things and I'M GONNA get a weapon. Yeah yeah he does lay overlap. It is what you get man or just a really strong talking to. It's one of the two well. I'd prefer that one. This one is off of instagram. Remember DOT com slash. Fantasy footballers from biggest Joe. Three one three now. Are you the biggest joe or you? The three hundred thirteenth biggest Joe. What if that's like you know? That's his Albee's biggest joke as weighing in at three thirteen offensive lineman biggest joe. So can you explain more about the franchise and keep a lottery in your home league? You briefly mentioned it and I'm so intrigued. Yeah this is a great time of year to talk about something like this because it's a lot of fun to convert your if you've had a league that's got the same group of men and women together for for several years it's really nice to convert that into a keeper league not not all the way to dynasty necessarily but it gives you something to talk about doing the off season so we did that a long long time ago in our League of record and what we decided to do. There's a million different ways. You can set up a keeper. Ours is a little unique. You basically get three players K you get to keep three players and it doesn't cost you where they drafted. It was just which three players do you want. But here's the catch. You can only guarantee one of them that's your franchise so you pick whatever you know. If you've got saquon Christian McCaffrey on your team. You're almost certainly going to franchise player. You'RE NOT GONNA lose them. They're yours then you don't get to pick two more you get to pick three more. They cannot be the same position. As the first off. I franchised Christian McCaffrey. And I've also got Joe Mixon. Well too bad. I can't throw him in my pool. I have to pick three other players can be anybody outside of the same position and then we have a fun event. Oh man it's the best is so fun. We do it different ways every year. You know whether it's just the ping pong balls and a ping pong ball hopper or colors on a fridge or whatever it is where you randomly you've got your three players in your pool and we draw two of them that you get to keep and the third one goes back in what this does is. It means that even though you're keeping three players per team that are the best in the league out of the League that draft still matters because all of a sudden chose to make someone you know you. You wanted to take your chances of getting a lot of good running backs. And Ono's Zeke is back in the draft even though it's a three keeper league every year our first round is you know stock full of right stock chock-full stock stock full of that be right. It's gotta be Chock Full It. I think it's both I I get where chock-full is coming from but you also stock up on things so sure. My stock is full. Okay I feel like if I google that they'd say did you mean Chop but the mind out you keep going. A lot of a lot of talent is in the beginning of our drafts. It's really really fun and that extra lottery moment adds one more day into the off season. Where the League comes together talks. Trash has fun remembers that. Oh Yeah I've got team. I can make transactions with. It's a really really fun. Event that we look forward to every year where you are in you pick you get to pick so like whoever the host of the video gives you like Red Yellow Green and you pick the two colors so you control your own destiny. And we all just watch and root for everyone else to lose their great. Oh every time you didn't want Oh much fun. Want their sadness about this event is man. It's so fun when they lose their guy although on the flipside when you lose your main. Oh sucks not fun so much there. Off OF TWITTER FROM AT KPC The twelve AKA twiggy mctwist face. Do you think Juju will be undervalued or overvalued? This coming draft season underwhelmed on the field but also could be getting big Ben back which narrative will rule the day. I think in a normal redraft league. He will more than likely be appropriately. Valued most guys near the top are at this point this day and age. I think that I think the people. Maybe I'm giving people too much credit but I think the fears of this last season and what you saw. We'll be waiting now. I will say this. In a dynasty league he is way overvalued right now is he. I think so. I've seen people as high as having them number two like overall or you know he's certainly in the in the top ten and that's scary wasn't easily moving up like last off-season that was kind of a fun debate to have the you had kind of the old guard. Like Oto Beckham Deandre Hopkins. They had been the number one guy for several years then also. Juju did what he did and was way younger than them so he'd skyrocketed towards the top. So you have. That's where I was going to move. The question too is last year you. I mean it's almost it's really. It's a pass to me. Oh Yeah for sure he did. He had what felt like a third string and eighth. String quartet of being a fourth string quarterback playing for like is he could not get it done. You put other superstars on that team and I bet you. They're not getting it done. Look at Odell Beckham. Owed Obama had pretty bad quarterback play for most of the year from Baker. Mayfield didn't really get it done. Jarvis was fine the find finest but I'm not saying that Baker was as bad as what was going on in. Pittsburgh saying the quarterback play matters. Today's wider status matters. But what you did see. Is that because the quarterback play matters so much for do and he wasn't able to succeed without competent. Backup there which currently they still don't have. How long does Big Ben continue playing? Does he come back this year and regain form and if he does is at the last year the second to last year long term. Four him there. There's a worry there And so I think you've got this combination. Where okay he comes back. And you didn't even know as the number one with Big Ben what he would do. We were projecting that one of your bold predictions last year which I heard it from a few places so not not just you. Ge- is going to be the number one guy. Yeah I was. I was bullish so after seeing what happened this year. That has completely knocked off of that horse so it hasn't knocked me off the talent that I believe Juju has I think he is as talented as as possible. But now there is like three extra layers of risk involved because you're a year later into big bins career now. Big Ben has an elbow injury. Now you know through evidence that their backups can't get the job done so basically if everything goes right. I think judy has that ceiling if big Ben comes back in his awesome and he's throwing for five thousand yards of Judas. His Number One guy. He could be the number one wide receiver but there are. There's so much more risk that wasn't there last year a year later two and injured starter with known terrible backups. This one's off of Youtube from Andrew Nelson Cooper Cup or DJ Charq. Now this is not classified if this dynasty or redraft so just answer the question however you want sure I know I wanNA frame it dynasty Uber Cup or DJ Chart. I I saw this before we started the show and I started to think about it. 'cause Cooper Cup. Obviously the one who's had the incredible production. Dj Shark did have a breakout of year. Looks like he's he probably have Gardner Minhsiu As his quarterback but it and Cooper Cup completely fell off the map towards the end a year. How do you feel about these guys? Was that a blip for Cooper. Cop was the breakout a mirage for DJ charge. I mean there are. There are so many variables floating around here for for both these guys that there could be not just a clear winner but there could be a clear loser as well out of these two guys. I don't I don't believe either of those. Two things you mentioned are are true. I don't think it was you know a a mirage breakout for. Dj Shark I think. Dj Chuck is legit. He has the physical tools he showed on. The field. Dealt with injury dealt with quarterbacks going back and forth I think he is for real. I also think Cooper Cup is phenomenal. He's one of my favorite dynasty targets. Right now if I had to pick between these two guys I would pick cooper because Cooper Cup has done it more sustained. I believe he is clearly on an offense that while we were super disappointed right you wanted the rams of the previous two seasons. Not The rams I just wanted to Cooper Cup of the beginning of the season to kind of go through the whole thing absolutely but I think we still have to be realistic. Shot mcvay in this rams with Goth with the older girly their offense is significantly better than the Jaguars oftens. So I'm GonNa take and I know there's like a three year age gap here but Coober Cups Twenty six years old. He's also a now going to be a full year removed from his ACL injury. So I am. I'm Cooper Cup side but this is a fascinating debate because if you believe in Dj Shark. You could argue. They're both great and you'll take the younger guy. He's the clear one on his team. Whereas with Gupta cop you say well he was for a minute but then it was Robert Woods. You know they. They share the ball better. So where are you on the Cooper Cup versus how I I think I leaned? Dj Shark? I liked like thanks. You're welcome thank you. I wouldn't shark go hideous coming in. I'll jerk yeah. This is a chart show chart because he's on my team there it is there. Charcoal is the more talented wide receiver. Cooper Cup is I'm not trying to take away from him but he is. He is a benefactor of a great offensive scheme that is putting him in a position a lot of the time. Oh no no. I don't know I know I. That's that's what I'm saying. I'm not taking that away from him but DJ Shark six Ford Two hundred pounds. He fast had the breakout year with last year. With Gardner a thousand eight again now is that is that the ceiling. I guess let me ask you that. Is that the ceiling for. Dj Shark or does he go up from there. No I think that I don't think it's a guarantee he goes up from there but I don't think that's his ceiling at all. I mean you. You've got a talented player. Who condemned go past a thousand eight? That being said if if you're talking about great season from him a super disappointing season wasn't a super disappointing season. It was really disappointing. Second half right up and so. That's kind of my point. Is that what? What was Cooper Cup? Why four I believe on the year. He finished at four. He was one of only two waters double touchdowns and so yeah. He had that disappointing. Stretch but Cooper Cup is great and he's still only twenty six. So go trade for Cooper cut because clearly everybody out there does not believe him. He founded by everybody out there. I'm talking about Mike Brooks and owl fair.

I was very happy. He wants to know what we think about him. I think he's great and I have said many times on this show how great he is and how sad. I am for his career. The man through through college through the professionals get the Mana quarterback through. What's the question? So Randall in Dallas Texas. Would you take Allen Robinson in the third round as your wide receiver? One if you went R. B. R. B. Nope I think okay. Yeah I mean look I I I think Allen Robinson is phenomenally talented but he has a lot of ways that it can go wrong. Starting with the quarterback. I mean you can make the argument. He had a poor version of Mitchell. Trubisky THIS YEAR. The offensive line was struggling. They lost tight ends a blockers and he still finished as a wide receiver. One so you know. What more do you want and if he finishes as a wide receiver one. You're getting them in third round. It's good I understand that argument and I do believe he is talented enough to repeat but there are so many ways that could go wrong. Starting of course with Mitchell trubisky the target share numbers that he had win all of those other receiving options. Were down and it. Basically just became a two man receiving core That obviously could go away and you you have to bring up. He's got an injury history. If you look at his career you know okay. He broke out with that awesome. You Know Wide Receiver. Six finish in two thousand fifteen and then spent the next three years of his career. Pretty much disappointing you until this one of them he would toward is AC on her first reception but and that's not good. I'm not blame. I know isn't that well. It sounded like you were is sound like you were disappointed in him that he tore his. Acl I was a little bit. I'm not blaming him but I am disappointed. I'm looking at some best ball. Adp These are wide. Receivers going ahead of Allan Robinson if you'd rather have them okay as you're one. We just talked about him Cooper Cup yes. Aj Brown the hotness of last year. Yes I think. He'll read hours reluctant reluctant. Because there's risk there too. I think everybody's all hot and bothered because how awesome. He looked towards the end of the season right now. We don't know WHO's quarterback is. We don't know if Derrick Henry is back so there's hesitation right now to answer that one Amari Cooper I will take Amari Cooper I know it brings you sadness to hear that but I would definitely I look if you wanna take a running back running back and then Amari Cooper as your wide receiver one. I'm fine with that. I do believe that there was more to him. Being injured. The second half when he sucked in the first half when he dominated I I I believe that narrative to be not a narrative. But you believe that happened five years in a row. No but the only full season as a cowboy where we watched that happen. I believe it happened fair enough all right last one for that. Because he's going right before Alan Robinson Portland Sutton from the Denver Bronco. I'm not your that early in the draft. You have to take I. I love taking risk later in the draft. But I don't WanNA project that forward in the third round with my first wide receiver. This one's from twitter from Greg. You just finished my first season. In a dynasty league currently waivers are off but trading is allowed plans to turn them on after the League's rookie draft. Is this how you would recommend in our leagues? We have everything open at once. Once the well the the waivers are always open. They are open but they are. We run on a FAB system. So they're not. It's not just first priority. It's there's a free agent Auction budget every single day. So that the waivers run once a day and they're locked again until ten o'clock the next day so it's not just news come new and it's whoever's sitting at a computer gets to go grab the player right. I mean that and that's how it is all season off season but we don't lock waivers down where no transactions can be made. If if you know someone out there you get a good camp report and you want to go out and see if he's there you know Matthew Berry just wrote a great article post combine of some of his takeaways. It's a great article every year He brought Bryce love that you know the Washington is they believe in him. Still and he's he could be on waivers in Dynasty Leagues. Like being able to see all the news and take action. That's why you play in a dynasty like I'm much more in favor of having waivers available to run in a dynasty league because that's the whole reason I played a dining off-season action completely agree from each. What dynasty is. He's got scratch it. You sound like you were trying to scratch it with. Your Voice is in my throat. Facebook Aaron Proud Foot Yeah. He's proud of his feet. Well one of them. Oh he's not proud fee. Nope proud foist that left. And he's got that left foot so much bigger than he's so proud of love this foot. Look how big it is. I wear a size fourteen in an eleven. GotTa get two pairs of shoes. Expensive of his question Pizza Rolls or pizza. Bagel BITES I'M GONNA go bagel Bites for sure not close really. Don't hear it. I'm not saying there about delicious but you you said. Clo- close because one of them can skuld my mouth unexpectedly. Those pizza pockets they retain heat. Oh my goodness times you you get that squirt pizza sauce in your mental. That will just take your Jawf. I don't WANNA eat lava so what you're saying. You want pizza in the morning pizza in the evening pizza at supper time. Yes I am one hundred percent fine with that. I just don't want to destroy. I just don't want to murder my mouth. See I'm I'm a little bit more of a risk taker. I liked the pizza rolls more now. I know what I'm getting into here. Here's what I will say in your defense that they're better if their way better not close no in your defense if the temperature controlled if if these are like you hit the right time. They sat out for the right amount of you have to once in the oven. You can't Nukem who nukes them if you if you're listening and you have taken these things that put them in the mind. Either one people do this. Don't do that. This is upsetting. Don't put don't put things that are supposed to be in the oven in the microwave and have soggy nasty garbage treats these are treats treat yourself with eleven but when they cooled to the right temperature. The roles like peak bagel bites peak roles. The roles are superior ECK okay. So we're both there. Yeah you just. You don't like to take on the risk. I've had too many injuries too. Many times pizza related foaming once situation from Youtube. This is Joe Wallich. Devante Parker value going forward is the a one year wonder or will he be a consistent wide receiver to in my lineup. Next year. He'll be a consistent wide receiver to in your lineup next year. Oh I think that that is fair to say at least for the first half of next year because I think we're all confident. At this point there is not a week. One rookie starter. That's what it applied Miami for Miami which means fits magic. Should be there as the week. One that's how I'm answering the question. If he is the level of was real. Because you watch the Games you saw separations. You saw contested catches. You saw great routes. You saw the physical talent that we also coming out of college realized and so I like the I like the way. This person has asked the question. They're not saying it's going to be a wide receiver. One GonNa be a dominant force for the from the dolphins. He's just saying. Is he going to be reliable? Wide Receiver too. I think that's a great bar for him. Yeah I think it's fair I would. I would put him right around there if a off of Instagram di Nero twenty-seven what is the best sports moment. You've watched lie as easy. I mean there's if you said what's the second best sports moment I've watched live. That's a hard as our. I don't know but I was and you were I was. I don't believe any of us. Gather we just happened to be at the same game and we didn't even know each other yet. We were it was. It was a five zero. Situa- situation we were under the same moon and two thousand was eight right yeah the NFC championship game. The Kurt Warner led cardinals against the Philadelphia. Eagles. To Go to the Super Bowl spoiler we won. We went to the Super Bowl with we went. Yeah that's where it ends story is done there but the game. The game itself was incredible. You had everything. We got out to a huge lead. The crowd is awesome or mocking. The Eagles fans right around us just like in your face destroyed you. They come back. Take the lead wreaking Sean Jackson. And we're like oh no we're GONNA lose but we came back we one could down. It's literally the highest game that you can go to at home for NFL. French we won the best home game. They you can win and we were a part of that. I was awesome and I'm curious for you. How how this felt because when I my experience of the game I have never experienced noise like that. I'm talking about the crowd noise. Our Stadium can be loud. Sometimes but I've I my chest like it was difficult to breathe because it was so loud in this room and that sounds ridiculous jail. I was I was affected by the country but legitimately I. It was harder to breathe with everyone being so freaking loud there. Yeah I mean you have asthma. I do You know I do know what you're saying. It was it was it but that that made it incredible. Yeah it was just. You were every every sense on. Your body was experiencing greatness including taste because I had so much food. They're instagram so it was a real. How could you eat at a time like that whole well? I wasn't like on the final drive. Put DOWN A hotdog. I've just say on the day I'm sure I had. Several is the grand from B two to ball to a lot of unique names coming in Deontay Johnson or Christian Kirk next year I do love the outlook for Deontay. John I'm not going to Johnson from Pittsburgh Christie Kirk from Arizona. Both well I guess I won't say it's fair to say that both are projected to be the wide receiver. Deonte Johnson theoretically should be the number two behind. Juju Smith Schuster Christian. Kirk Kirk is. The one could profile as the one is the one. I mean especially another year older for Larry. What if they take? Cd LAMB or Jerry. Judy at number eight in the draft. That would change things but right. Now he's not on the roster and to me. I would much rather have Christian Kirk the pace of play everything you saw from the cardinals this year from a rookie quarterback projects for enormous fantasy value. Going forward This past year know Chris. Kirk was a my guy for Andy because of some of those systems I was. I was opposed to it on the full basis. That rookie quarterback's don't throw enough touchdowns and usually not enough yardage to really support that. But in that second year that goes away and so I think it does. I mean you you saw the percentage of drives it got to the red zone versus the percentage of Red Zone touchdowns. There were one of the craziest. You know gaps in the League and that is something that's GonNa Change with a year under the belt for cuyler. Murray and I think you could talk about adding three or four touchdowns to Christian Kirk outside of the yardage and Kirk showed flashes of being true. Yeah the game against Tampa Bay. Which a lot of teams did that to the Tampa Bay secondary but Chris Kirk absolutely went off kind of a Of what could and something in three? Yes yeah he was awesome in Cuyler was excellent as well. The next question is from facebook. Julian Ferrera who's a better buying Dynasty T. Y? Hilton Brandin Cooks Aj Green? Oh Man. Data AD is Nasser. That's a nasty does. Who is the best? Buy of these three cells in Dynasty T. Y. Hilton Brandin cooks or AJ Green I'll go t Y Hilton. He dealt with injury this year so his value is low. He has the chance to have a quarterback upgrade. Maybe maybe I mean you know possibly would downgrade. They could get Philip rivers. Oh boom again Yeah but I mean look I. I think you can make the argument so. Ty Hilton will turn thirty one in November and AJ Greens anyone. I believe they're the same age you could make the argument. Brandin cooks is. It should be the answer here. I I would find it hard for. Aj Green at thirty one years old with a rookie quarterback coming in having played you know whatever it is nine games in the last two seasons. I am obviously on this show. I've been very anti AJ green for the last whatever fourteen fifteen months so I couldn't see myself perhaps like of the last thirty two games. He's played by ten of them. Yeah I think he's going to extend that back even another. I'm GonNa go do some. It's it's been a while since he's had a full healthy season which is kind of crazy because he had a stretch where he was the longest thousand yard receiver in the League in consecutive seasons. He was doing that because he you know he's playing sixteen games But I in a dynasty do not WanNa buy Aj Green. I sold him this last year's off season and I was very happy about that. So if you want bring a born t y Hilton. I'm fine with that. He's younger. He's still talented. But I'd go to you. Where would you go on those three next question? I I guess it would be cooks mean. I can't believe that your home is that old. That's that just feels wrong. Aj Greenfield's old. Yes T Y. Hilton feels like a vet. Yeah he feels like you should be twenty nine. Maybe Twenty eight you know for me. Part of that is that I feel like. There's there's just a history of the big wide receiver say. Two thousand twelve was his rookie year. I feel like there are so many big wide receivers who hit a wall and are done. And that's not to say that they can't hit that wall late Brandon. Marshall played to a to a you know an old age. But you've got when Brandon. Marshall hit the wall though that one is that was a brick wall when Andre Johnson on leave when he hit the wall just done and so I think I'm kind of maybe biased against the older. Big Is maybe some to Leo Jones. Well Julio hasn't shown signs of hitting that wall yet but when he hits the wall I'll say he's done but I you know I traded. Aj Green plus I don't remember four. Julio last off season they're about the same age but AJ Green had shown signs of hit that wall with injury And Julio had just looks unbelievable still. Instagram Steven Rue the most important question nobody's asking. Oh I can't wait. Where is that cookie from? And this is in regards to the the social video that you put out asking for mailbag question or you were eating a giant cookies. Part of my diet plan to eat your book. Are you booking before the key? Exact exact going to split unmanned one on Mac and putting on mass and I'm GonNa bulk up and then man when I come. He's fretted someday one. I'm thinking I'm thinking about considering getting trapped you thought about considering running and then did I run. You don't just yes or no question. Did I run? Did you that. I run once once interest after thinking about considering you did. So does that mean if I think about considering getting shredded maybe I'll get shredded once once. Is You need all I need. I just need a photograph to show my grandchildren like this was me you know. Yeah so anyway back to the cook back to your weight up the cookie. The name of the place Senator sweeties or Sweden's something like that. Sweet Sweetie Sweetie so. They were a present from Brian. Cashman the The bigger loser Now in birthday present for you. Yeah they were it was. It was a birthday present for me and I said thank you and then I called him the Katrina virus. It was it destroyed all of our digestive systems. I mean this thing was like eating. Just take why didn't we just like sprinkle a bunch of sugar and pour some chocolate syrup on butter and eat that stick of butter. It was delicious. It was so good so good but it immediately made me feel worse than like. I'm used to eating bad things and then feeling bad because habits but that took it to a new level and I can't wait for my next one youtube from those Lozano Jason. Which would you like? Oh it's even dressed. Okay I'll answer it. The one and Kerryon Johnson the one on one and carry on. Yeah or Zeke. That's interesting I I would definitely go to one on one and carry on Johnson. I think right now if you're looking at the Jonathan said Carrie Johnson or Zeke. It would without a doubt be Zeke. Okay I know that I believe in the talent of carry on but you can't trust his health anymore Expect Detroit to add another running back and he's not got the contract or the situation the history. I mean that's not close. My love for Johnson doesn't force me to give bad advice to people. But if you're adding the one one which could be a zeke level talent at a younger age we look. Zeke is awesome. I would love to have him in a dynasty league but I promise you fall off quicker than you think because he has a running back and it happens to everyone out there. Not named Adrian Peterson. Frank Gore marshawn Lynch. Did you hear Frank? Gore is GONNA keep playing. I heard he's going to keep working out Z. Wants is going to keep working out. Look at the bills. Won't have him back. I can't fathom a team taking on a thirty seven year old running back. I'd see thirty seven. Yeah he's a he's a grandfather. I mean well hold on thirty seven. Are you agreeing father? No I don't think so I'm thirty seven or your grandfather. No not that. I'm aware of so but we both could be crammed posted. We don't high school days. Let's take it easy Yeah it is funny though to think like. I'm a young man like I'm just. I'm not even you just go this grandfather. Well that's because I'm not running back. I'm not an O- layer so my thirty seven is fine. Frank Gore's thirty seven is like you know full. I can't believe it doesn't have full gray head of hair greybeard all sorts of you know. ailments ailments left and right bad hip probably some deep vein thrombosis sulfur. Sure don't don't go in the aircraft. All right we'll get here on this last question twitter from at help whole eight. Oh two five four nine okay. That's the names have been fantastic today. Congratulations foot clan users. That's the that's the handle the the name they go by D. Money of course M. U. N. Y. D. Mooney Mooney in a dynasty format. When should we move on from running backs? I'm desperately trying to move Zeke right now. Is that the right move. No I don't think that's the right move. I think Zeke isn't at that point yet You know it's different for everybody right. Zeke is older than Leonard Fournette. Who I'm trying to move Zeke will be twenty five in July. Yeah I mean if you have to look at a couple of things with running backs The contract situation matters a ton Zeke. Because he's a cowboy because he's you know the center of the franchise and they paid so much to get him and they picked him so high and they've had success with him. He's going to probably get another contract after this big contract and you know he hasn't shown signs of slowing down in the team is behind him. Love him those are things that are going to keep him playing. You Know Leonard Fournette on the other end you've got them voiding. His guaranteed contracts saying. They're not sure if they're going to pick up this year if he's part of the plans and then all of a sudden what happens is it's really free agency that ruins a running backs life You know once they hit the market and all of a sudden they realize oh. Gosh people don't want me as much as I thought they would want me be the you know they. They're replacing me with these rookies. Who are twenty years old and cost them? Nothing as opposed to paying me big money so now. I can't find a team so the contract situation is what I would look at and try to project it forward to say. Do I think he's going to get another one or does he? Currently have you know three more years on his contract and use that as a broader for selling the the running backs before they hit their cliff? I feel like I'd be willing to sell Zeke in about two years. Yeah I think I can. I think that I can guarantee myself two more years of top tier production. He may have. He may have many more after that. But with the running back when it comes to train them and dynasty I would prefer to be out in front and be a year too early on selling them because I can still sell at peak value. Yeah like I mean we. We talked about David Johnson. At the beginning of the show he was he would have been at peak value until he wasn't so that Steve out before this last off season Before all the knee stuff started coming out right after the super bowl is when Andy sold. Todd Gurley for a hall right a hall of halls and so yeah if you do get ahead of it you're going to get so much back from the stars so it's not. I'm not saying like I wouldn't sell Zeke but if you are selling him now because I think you've got a really really highly guaranteed two years of great value so if you're selling them now you better be getting that hall of halls and Zeke. Didn't have that number one season. This past year like girly had so that you could do. You think you're really going to get his peak value. Yes you can still. You can still trade Zeke for peak value. Okay Brook- Zeke. I got four now. Train them straight up. Oh excellent offer on the air. No thank you thought. I thought I was going to get them there pressure. I'm into it. Y'All ask you I'll ask you again tomorrow. You'll want to thank pristine auction. Christie's auction the best sports memorabilia site on the Internet yesterday a saints two-pack Lua to pack. What and Alvin Kamara signed Jersey suber? Camario went for sixty seven bucks and a jared Cook Jerry. What was Was Our friends name from the other day. Oh something twenty four Jacob J. Jd Pune Jerry Dude. That's he actually their cousins.

None of which included just in jackson's production. Two straight weeks of full tilt on this side of the table. I spent the week analyzing games with a critical eye looking at opportunities before our trade deadline. And i identify justin jackson as a trade target. I pursued such a Player and acquired him for the purpose of a very contested. League of record matchup and Then the dream. The dream for my opponent came through. Where player was heard on the first play of the game and He used me. And i lost by a margin he could have easily overcome. Thank you al borland. I assume you're welcome. That was the live sound of justin jackson. Not everything not everything went well. It was a lot of good football. I mean some fun football and then it really ended with a with Foof without sunday night that sunday night game. That was going to be awesome between tom. Brady and drew brees. Oh my word. That was some of the worst football. I it was. It was like the movie signs like this great awesome and then all of a sudden. The end was a huge letdown. The move all signs. Oh you've you have Angered the m night shamlan truth over there alert here please turn it off your of limitations but the aliens were allergic to water on the planet where full of water take over. That was the end of the move. You thought that was a good ending. I frigging love that movie. The movie was great. that's what i'm saying. Great alien destroy. The aliens covers eighty percent of the of the planet. So you're you're in on this. Hey mike dalby like us going to take over a cyanide plant like i look great display. We gotta get your ten percent of resources first of all these aliens. They may never have seen water before. How would they know that. They're taking over a planet they have they have interstellar travel technology. They don't know the water ones. I'll say a million times. Don't try to get into the heads of aliens right. You don't know what their motivations were. That was what i comp this week in football because it was awesome. Be in a worst mood than what justin jackson put me in. And now you tread on my favorite him night movie. I've reagan love that movie. All right the movie is great. The ending trash. We're not friends monday. Sunday oh i like this one we We scoured the social media and we found some great puns to describe this weekend saw begin here. Hip hip marais or chase d- now while he was double digit it was okay but he wasn't great tomb. Brady tom brady's grade the tampa. Bay buccaneers on top. Abass walking near. Oh that's two layers deep. Melvin gordon done Thrill fuller think. We've got to experience that one before lames connor. Oh michael tall. That's all right. Very good Mary judy season jerry. Do you have a booty scooting. Jake ludwig i'm free now. We'll finish with devante. Wish i had them all right ed. Oh so jake luton. That's ridiculous that's spin move though cam could learn a thing or two look a lot of people out there they They look at our job and they look at what we have to do. And they say. You are the luckiest people on the face. The earth and most moments of life there correct. But tonight we have to watch the patriots. Jets play football and Feel like we're being punished. Yeah do you have one of those devices that hold the is open. Do you got one of those born style. In fairness to football we thought sudden night football was going to be outstanding that's true and it was as unwatchable as as any football. I've seen in a long time whereas tonight we expect it to be just trash. So how many of your teams have players tonight's game. Oh thankfully none of them. Yeah i imagine that will. That's part of what makes tonight. Less exciting is probably not a lotta starts out there but maybe some cam. Newton's i know albor. Lynn is facing frank gore. So that's a treat. You need frank gorgeous to score fewer than four points. That is correct. I think i would put that at fifty fifty. Maybe maybe came balaj making an appearance weekend. Oh we did. We did it again. I know out of gays. Let somebody go and then awesome possible. Let's get into the rewind weekly rewind he is he is the opposite sean mcvay. Does this mean that we should in dynasty leagues go. Jade sam darnold and mems and just get every jet. You can't in the dynasty league because you know he's not going to be there. Long-term first of all cannibalized did not escape and learn how to catch. Footballs so there is that Weekly rewind lots of news to talk about. I'm still tilting over your signs. Take it sucks. so bad. All right christian mccaffrey. Yes so upset. Christian mccaffrey jason. This real after missing the month with an ankle injury after showing up being the same old christian. Mccaffrey miss more time with a shoulder injury that he suffered yesterday. If those of you listening are in shock Join us because this was something that broke from in rappaport about an hour ago and his status is now in doubt. It is the worst. I mean you have waited for. So i look in our league record on the christian mccaffrey manager. I've i've struggled through the. I've endured i've come out on top in first place in the league and now him back and watched the game. Last night was like yes. It's so good. And then i come in this morning and you guys are like cease injured and i just assumed you're being flow super funny guys. Oh you're so funny and he's injured. It's not fair sorry Justin jackson injured his knee. Taken out after a snap. David montgomery concussion in the fourth quarter also on my roster. David johnson exited with a concussion. This was disappointing at great opportunity in this game. And so will you gotta monitor I guess you know duke johnson. We'll see. I mean that one yeah. It's the concussion. He'll have time to get back. But duke should be picked up in the meantime. Yeah that's the called the convenient concussion. Get it early. In the game. See of maximal time for next week. That's what they try to do Big ben knee injury able to return. He's big ben he'll be all right. Matthew stafford exited with Concussion so he'll have to be in the protocol as well kyle. Alan really gruesome dislocation of the ankle. It was so bizarre to the defender like his leg went flying into legs. Scissored kyle alan's leg and dislocated his ankle. We're going to I did see a report that it's they're saying. It's going to be alex smith next week. So in smith smith kind of lost the game there at the end but he looked right looked alright and just i want him in like the lower body cast for the game right one. Impre- protect it. Does he need any precautionary surgeries. I know we've talked about that. Can we take care. I think he's had an all right. Noah fant returned after leaving with an ankle injury. He's had this ankle injury all year to get healthy man. Alberto though suffered a knee injury did not return. This could be serious So noah fant will have potentially more snaps or opportunities preston williams foot injury viscous chenault hamstring injury and boy a lot of injuries this week. Yup a report. The nick chubb and miles sanders are expected to return to practice this. We go some good news. They could be back out there in in baker baker put on the co vid list. A close contact should be okay there on by. Yeah and so he. He could be cleared by wednesday. So we're expecting. Baker mayfield will be back but i mean this is fantastic. News man both. Nick chubb and miles sanders. Come back for fantasy lineups. That's great you must not have. Kareem hunt on your. Do you should be happy either. Cream was better. I knew when he could split little touchdown dependent though. But yeah i hear you but they were. They were flowing now. They're both great great. Plays the rest of the season. Let's talk studs. This week's fantasy stud muffins kyla murray. Who who doggy. Twenty one for twenty six to eighty three and three eleven for one. Oh six on the ground. Another rushing touchdown. If you're running back. Got one hundred six yards and a touchdown. You are thrilled. Yes if your quarterback got two hundred eighty three yards and three touchdowns you are thrilled. Yes you just got to thrilling players in one and it is awesome so much thrilled so much through. He's the first player in. Nfl history of a rushing and passing touchdown Seven of the first eight games of the year. Ooh ziff extent. I didn't realize that. When i got i started this stat. And then i got to the end. And i didn't like it but i had to finish. He's dominating yeah. Buffalo seattle new england. The next three weeks we. We had the return. josh stallion. Thirty one for thirty eight four fifteen in three scored on the grounds well came through some sometimes fantasy football season of the week. Maybe sometimes it's easy. When you see josh allen matched up against a defense giving up three hundred fifty passing yards. That seems doubt. Yeah that seems easy now when you when you look at what happened with the cowboys in steelers game. Sometimes it's not easy football man football cow. What yeah that was. That was a close one. Patrick mahomes keeps doing it next week. He won't though that's my prediction. They are on by. Yeah true lock jason. What do you think of drew. Lock your twenty five for forty eight. Three thirteen and to his second apps are a lot better than his first. It's not just the second half exactly. It's the fourth quarter. Apparently he doesn't know how to play football for three of them and then he's great in the fourth quarter hit his play him next week. Next week against the raiders. I i mean. I guess you can throw them in there. He ended with a great fantasy. day If you were watching the game he was not good for the vast majority of it which is why they were down by so much. Throw so much at the end of the game. Atlanta is certainly prone to giving late game comebacks. Who do you like more drew. Lock or mason rudolph o. Drew lock what. Oh man fraternity. I don't know as an insult to drew. I agree locks the worst. I think he he might be one of the worst. But not when you bring up mason route. That's how i feel like it's it's like saying like yeah i don't i'm not a huge fan of drew lock but then you bring up. Oh man mason rudolph. I can't not a big fan guy. He's terrible. Aaron rodgers not terrible spectacular thursday night Teddy bridgewater got done. Thirty six had forty nine. And three ten into had a rushing touchdown in this game that carolina team fun game. It was a great game super. Well coached. I mean they were going after the kansas city chiefs. They were trying everything they could to win fake punt going forward on fourth down converting on of them. The is still wasn't enough but the team looked just absolutely excellent. Henao maybe no christian mccaffrey for a week but he changes that offense. Tremendously big ben to shawn watson. drew brees drew brees. Yeah breeze man. it was a breeze for him last night. Just no big deal four touchdowns i just two hundred twenty two yards. Because it was it was easy. You remember easy was injured this week. Yeah ammos playing the tampa bay buccaneers. Yeah yeah he. S san francisco this week but after that atlanta denver atlanta three straight weeks with michael thomas beck so really really nice for drew brees and matt ryan did he have julio jones yes okay. He had a great fantasy game. That's how it works. So any other quarterbacks you guys wanna look at we good to move onto the dalvin cook portion of the show man well over other dalvin cook twenty two for two zero six two. And it's not like you don't come into the game knowing the dalvin cook is the plan right roy. Right and then you get You chicago this week then. Dallas carolina. Jacksonville dalvin cook is going to carry many fantasy team for weeks. To come is not fun. Play against albuque- cook fifty-six touches four hundred seventy eight yards and six touchdowns over the last two weeks his last two weeks. He's he's on all. I wanna hear this. Yes so over. The last two weeks that would be as the last two. Yeah no. I want this. I want this pays really back right. He's on pays for two thousand nine hundred fifty two rushing yards su nine five to got forty touchdowns around rushing touchdowns He's gonna add eight hundred and seventy two receiving yards eight receiving touchdowns. That's his sixty eighth over the last two. I mean these last two games. Will he hit three thousand. That's what we've been wondering silly. He spoke good. I mean this. How good the reality is. it's not. I mean these last two weeks have been out religiously good but the entire season been phenomenal. I want anybody else in fantasy football the rest of the season. Maybe i don't want camaro overcook the rest of the season. Yeah i don't. I michael thomas coming. Bats all just for for cook. It's just the injury risk. We've seen him leave too many games in too many years. Ed so you worry. It's going to happen again. But outside of that if he's out there he's been phenomenal week. Two against the indianapolis colts. He was running back seventeen which is fine. That's that's you're right. Maybe you're not excited. But that's fine every other week. He's been topped in ridiculous christian. Mccaffrey eighteen sixty nine. And a touchdown on the ground ten targets. Ten for eighty two and a touchdown through the air and really we had heard that Mike davis is gonna split opportunities with them at. It didn't really manifest. I mean you didn't see my davis really get involved until the very end when mccaffrey had been out. Seventy one percent snaps. Eighty two percent of running back touches. It's all pretend when you say you're going to take them off the field then you put him on the field and you go. Oh no we need that. And so Unfortunately ain't shoulder injury. Maybe he'll be back after the tampa bay game and you'll get detroit minnesota before his by week but hopefully you get them back before the bye week. Now would be unfortunate if he was longer Some other honorable mentions at the running back position to throw out there james robinson. I think that one's worth noting Know it was the houston texans and their defense is not the strongest part of the twenty. Five carries is exactly the opportunities were there for robinson that the targets did kind of evaporate only two targets no receptions with jake gluten but he will get to take on the green bay packers who have a porous run defense as well so that's good news. At least you get another week. Out of james robinson. This is kind of a paycheck to paycheck here with with robinson knowing. Exactly what's going to happen with pittsburgh in two weeks robinson is i think they put them on salary. Now like not a contract employee for your fantasy team no he. He's in every week star. I'll start him two weeks from now against pittsburgh the great defense because he's just been phenomenal. You look at his entire season. He's twenty five opportunities every game absolutely. I mean that's the the the last if you look at the last six games. There's been one where he's had fewer than twenty opportunities. That game went to the wire too. That was a pretty fun game All right before we talk about wide receiver studs today sponsors Today we wanna thank simply safe. Look everybody wants to keep their home and family. Safe i know brooks is in that category brooks just bought a new home. Start to keep all that jewelry safe. Yeah he's he's a big rig drip drip drip yup. yeah him and dez bryant bowling but He just signed up for simply safe. That's right that's right. Yeah okay. And what i like about simply safe Personally is i like just not having to think about it anymore. That's what i once you get simply safe and you set it up. This is not a long term contract is just kinda automated. I liked the automated life. And they've got your back you get the cameras and the sensors in the professional monitoring and then i don't think about it anymore. It's just done and you can set it up yourself Have you set it up yet. Brooks. that's what i did. You didn't okay. don't you. Got to keep those gems protected. I know i know he gotta get it up quick before somebody tries to get it But they yeah they take care of you right now our listeners get a free home security camera when you purchase a simplisafe system at simplisafe dot com slash footballers you also get a sixty day risk-free trial so there's nothing to lose visit simplisafe dot com slash footballers for your free security camera today that simplisafe dot com slash footballers. Don't come after brill. Brooks's jeweled man. You'll know hands hands off hands off the jewel. All right we've got Some wide receiver studs this week. How about eighteen targets for tyreek hill about nine for one thirteen and two. And i know everyone's kill and your team your super happy about this. Yeah this is not breaking news. That he's good. No no but why can't city doesn't run the ball anymore. What happened. What happened over the last couple of weeks there. Are you know what we need. We need to shore up this running back. Let's go navy on bell. He's he's a free agent got cutlets bring him in and then we will never run the ball. Maybe i can figure this thing out. Pick up the shady last year and led like this year so that they can run somebody inefficient out there and justify statistically that the man who's gonna make one hundred and brazilian throw the ball and every play mahomes. This is the mahomes conspiracies. Oh go get that guy or or it could be. They go you know. We're not happy with our run game. It hasn't been working as well as we hope to. When we drafted clyde edwards helaire. Let's go get left bell. See if he's got no he don't he don't have it and so they're not happy with their running game and they're throwing the ball more and because that's what they should be doing they should just. This should cut quite edwards helaire. I mean every running back on the roster cut kind just go full all wide receivers. I still believe my theory. 'cause why else would you run daryl williams out there so much fair anyways. Yeah the clyde edwards alert thing. He obviously didn't come up in in the studs and he probably doesn't come up in the stinkers because he he was the runningback seventeen so far. He scored a passing touchdown which is really he probably said. Guys throw me the ball but he should be a discussion. Because i you know. Lev- is not good but they aren't running the football and he hasn't gotten into the end zone except for this past week really. So where are you. I mean. I'm not acquiring clyde based on this game. I think maybe i cash out. I think clyde will continue to be what he's been the whole season. Which is a solid option running back not a spectacular great phenomenal fantasy asset. That that you know the fantasy community hoped when he was drafted and to this team he's just gonna be an okay so you just hold them. You keep playing them. And and i'm cutting left bell. I i don't even yeah. There's no point in having him. he's not gonna do anything to impress fantasy players in. If you hadn't seen the snaps or things like that daryl. Williams was running ahead of leon bell yesterday yet. Both both literally and figuratively correct. Yeah i mean goodness all right Davante adams has been spectacular past three weeks wide receiver to she two wide receiver. Three ten for one seventy three and one the dalvin cook of the wide receiver position at this moment in time. Hey look at this guy yes. Dj char he just needed a garrett of that joint. Joran minhsiu issues. Too short yeah. That's we brought you. The the analysis argument j. gluten very tall chart tall. Jason brought it up Probably had a lead allergy. Yes and you get free in there and seven for one forty six and one now one big play still involved in this often. He looked good but has green bay. Pittsburgh coming up he getting out cashing in. I think i would think i would try to upgrade certainly willing to do that if if you could you know. Pull the wool over. Someone's is your one performance here with dj chart the the important number here to meet several one forty six and one. That's all that's important. Twelve targets y. You had a brand new quarterback you don't know what he's gonna do. You can hypothesize maybe he's gonna dump it down to two laviska should not a whole bunch but no like luton tried to at least open up the game. The he was the green bay secondary's better than houston texans. So we'll see if it can continue moving forward but it's it's signs of life that this quarterback preferred targeting dj chart. I'm going to. I'm going to put you on. Tell mike all right. Curtis samuel went nine for one. Oh five and one. Yeah he did. Curtis samuel has been good for at least the past three weeks. Yep curtis samuel or dj more in your lineup recipes. I don't know if you can do. I rest of season. But but but i will say you can curtis samuel you. You have to start him at this point last jay more three targets. He was two for eighteen last week. Yet to catches robby. Anderson still had thirteen targets nine catches over the last five weeks. Curtis samuel is the leading fantasy scorer at wide receiver for the panthers. Dj more is actually second and robby. Anderson is now third over the last five games. They're an offense that has three really solid wide receivers and it looks like they you know they're gonna they're not partial to sing So and so has to get the ball and they're going to use whoever makes the most sense that game and i think that those numbers really show fantasy players why you don't look at numbers like that because dj more had basically. He's he's had stinkers and he had two big games in that stretch. And you'd much rather have had robby anderson through that duration. Would you not have it consistency on a week to week basis versus getting goose. Yeah i mean well two weeks ago. One of those horrific aims you're talking about. He had less than a point fewer than robby anderson. So this last week was really the first week in that. How would you rate the rest of the season. How would i rate them rest of season. I would probably put it in reverse order still. I would go robby i just because of targets. He's looked good It it's tough between dj morning. Curtis samuel one eight one or two eight to be there jerry. Jeudy fourteen targets seven for one twenty five people were calling for the breakout game this week and they got it. You like season. yeah i mean. He's a talented guy. I'm still not thrilled with having to rely on. Drew lock but coming up. Here against the raiders. I think it's another good matchup. And it's it's nice to see a rookie. Continue developing and historically rookie wide receiver. Second half of the year is where they break out more than the first half of year. So there's great science here all right. Well fuller scored in six straight games. He went five for one hundred and one brandin cooks had another great game before the show. We were talking about both of those players. They've been outstanding for weeks now. Yeah i mean week. After week after week. Both guys were getting done. You can't look at one's great game and say oh that means the other is not you know the the disguise the one you want you want both players keenan alouette nine for one or three again man. What about christian kirk here christian kirk getting it done week after week. Five for one twenty three and one on this was different to you. You had high volume. You had eight targets you had to tremendous downfield shots as well. Not just He we're five yards away. And chris kirk is the one that comes away with a touchdown so this this is very positive. Sign as well. Yeah it's basically what he did against dallas couple of weeks ago when he had the big play across The bomb they take a deep shot with him a couple times. A game Because they really don't wanna do that with india's abella yeah. It's one of them works. You know it'd be one thing. And i know we. We were cardinal fans out here so it it it hurts to know that decay metcalf win a pick later than andy isabella. But it really doesn't help that. There's such a size disparity between the two players physically or emotionally physically. Yeah i mean it's like did you look at these guys with drafted. It just hurts. I mean decays sitting there chasing them. Buddha baker running a four two nine at nine tall. Andy isabella's fumbling kickoffs and disappearing but running wrong routes. Yeah chris kirk is involved has been great back to back games with eight targets. He's got outlandishly five touchdowns in the last three games in the upcoming schedule buffalo and seattle. I think you're gonna wanna start most cardinals in those games. Yeah keiler is just move. I mean the number one scoring offense football. They scored over thirty points. I think four straight weeks decay metcalf. He's on pace for eighty six. Fifteen seventy six and sixteen touchdown so Breakout year for decay mclaren. Great again seven for one fifteen and one he just gets it done and Help continue to do so. Because alex smith your if he doesn't have it physically certainly still smart. He knows there's one player to throw the ball to now. What the breakout. Oh no that was case. Keenum is case keenum. Sorry in my head. I was confused. The timelines i get it. I get that. Yeah case keenum. An oil without wind. Alex smith get hurt and it was because jerry mcmorris rookie year. He started with case keenum. I mean the truth is if alex smith can get get his swagger back amin. It's you're still talking about a player who had a life threatening injury of a limb threatening injury so it's gonna take him some time to work back but if we have we're going to get some some weeks of practice where alex smith is the starter that could turn into an upgrade here for tear maclaurin. Who has been dragging The washington offense with him because he is so excellent. Well i mean jd. mckissic's helping out to sure. Now i the the goal would be you know ken. Smith run the offense and get them into position to score then you get opportunities from corn for gibson for this office to actually get it done so kelsey. Oh i love travis. Kelsey twelve targets ten catches one nine. He's he's not he's not he's not a fair advantage. He is the He's got the tight end. One on lockdown here he is averaging fifteen point five fantasy points per game waller tied into position. Ten point two so. He's literally better than darren waller. That's a difference maker every week every single not every week not next week that well short. Not when he's not playing and not three weeks ago when he was three for thirty one outside of literally that that single game. He's been a top six tight end every week. He's just unfair. All right Was that that. Wasn't the weather game was it Yes i the line where they yeah game where it was so. Maybe don't don't play on the rain. Well you're still gonna play in the snow lower expectations all right You knew the offense wasn't going well for chicago because Jimmy graham had six targets for six catches fifty five yards. Jimmy grandpa one touchdown and You could do worse. Dat debt is the motto. That's the copy written Tagline for jimmy. Graham you could do worse Irv smith i don't know what to make of the irv smith game really because it was too. He had two catches he got hurt. He scored twice so he had two touchdowns meat is he's red zone option. This is rudolph us to be. Yeah and this is like a. This is the the. Darren fells the or aken so this is one of those things where the tight end is leaks out on the la action. So i would rather have dalvin cook What i mean by that is if you've gotta get down near the goal line. And that's where irv smith are. You offering me irv smith for my dalvin. Cook yes yes yes. Oh for sure if you will accept no. My point is for a good show mike. I don't want a tight end who's touchdown dependent. That is on the same team with alvin. Cook because anytime they want to just have dalvin cook. It probably can hodkinson gotten to the end zone again. Which was nice to see despite the quarterback getting knocked out. Evan ingram five for forty eight and a touchdown. He had a his normal assault. Mo- great plays and mind boggling. Who got gotta deal with evidence. Buffoonery he hit in the face with the football. Look sometimes you got to. You're not awake. Take a football in the face and you may only salt. How man he's he. He is so flashy has big plays has great talent and also is he just makes so we will lose you the game on him sometimes. He looks like a baby deer. Yeah i get that fast. Resume good a little too fast. And just he doesn't have full control of his of his limbs right now but he's still a beer so he can be very fast right. It's the baby deer. All what do you make of jonnu smith the he only two targets but he got back into the end zone and it was right at the. I mean it was at the end of the game so this will you know that i had six targets in the same game. This is not it's been a downward spiral here for jani. Yeah i agree. I mean they're you know you're happy if you score but it's weird to have jonnu smith here in the stud muffins and feel like he belongs in the stinkers right. Maybe he's a both. He's a stud instinct now. I will say didn't corey davis goose in this game. Oh i believe corey davis had zero. Yeah brooks is not so. It wasn't like oh man. The narrative is corey. Davis is a core part of the offense now and janis eliminated. No it's just the offense. Wasn't that great in this game. Chicago's decent standing defense is great. Andy tell me how many completions ryan tannehill through. Oh my goodness well let me think. I mean if you know that. Johnny smith and corey davis combined for two catches. I'm guessing you're talking like ten to twelve ten. Jonah smith had twenty percent of the receiving maybe a bit of an ally game because it was chicago. Yeah but at the same time. John who is a scary place if people you know. We're skipping the secrecy. But if people are dropping corey davis because of a goose i would i pick them up as well all right. Let's talk stinkers. Stinkers of the week presented by odor eaters presented by. Tom brady brady so the easy thing to do. Tom brady twenty two for thirty eight to nine and three interceptions no touchdowns kyle allen scored more than him and kyle and was knocked out of the game. These to do is make excuses for tom. Brady i mean he. He's had games before in prime time. I can remember the kansas city game a couple of years ago. He comes back out. Look no one's more determined than tom. Brady and look the roster. This is like a vince. Young super team. We got going on here. This is the first time. I think that you've had three pope pro bowl wide receivers on a on a roster in a long time with with antonio brown's appearance but this is not what you hope to see when you add it antonio brown to the mix in god godwin back and mike evans says there and no it is not and i. I had a flood of twitter action. Because i traded for tom brady and everyone was like. Oh man don't worry everybody. I did not play him in this game. I had josh allen. So i was great. I and i'm not i'm not going. I personally am not overreacting to this. The if this was something we had been seeing and it looks like tom brady. Maybe lost it. You know it's gonna come but the previous two weeks were phenomenal from tom. Brady so i'm not you know. He had six hundred forty eight yards and six touchdowns in the two prior games. This was a trash game and he looked. You should just give a thank you note to the schedule. Makers though because josh allen after four straight down weeks if he's not facing seattle this past week after what brady had done. I can't imagine he's not in there. Now what do you make though you schedule out of Tom brady four of nine. Weeks has been the qb nineteen or worse I would say well five of nine top ten quarterback but that didn't play that is not a consistency metric with a fantasy quarterback. No it's not. But if you look at the actual the path. The fact that mike evans had been banged up. They lost chris godwin. He's been working with a rag tag group. Obviously we hoped for a lot better with chris. Godwin antonio brown added to the mix. This was supposed to be the get right game one but you gotta look at wrong game. It was a get wrong game You gotta look forward. And i can't imagine just saying well because he had one bad game. Yeah i'm out on. Tom brady but you do have to be smart. And he's not in every week start probably seems that way derrick henry with the aforementioned chicago game. He only went twenty one for sixty eight no touchdowns in this game. No targets in this game. You know indianapolis baltimore indianapolis the next three games. I mean that is a prescription for pain. But he generally gets into the end zone. Yeah he's still getting twenty one carries. You're just you just play derrick henry. There's not a lot yup say now. This one was a shocker. If there's what happened if there's a stat line that i was shocked with. I can't think of it. James conner nine for twenty two against dallas at home in a game. You're favored heavily so bizarre. We had eleven opportunities for james conner. Who up until that point you know since week to this guy was averaging a what have we got over twenty opportunities a game. I still haven't seen any reports from six percent of snaps tons of mcfarland tons of snell. I don't know what happened. I apologise that. I do not have an answer here. If there was an award that we had during the stinkers segment for a player. That is the stinker of the week. The steve this dinkiest the stinky assed of the week it would be connor and it was a shock. Yeah and if you were counting on him like we all were you yeah. It was a terrible horrific game. Both for james conner and for the steelers I think they fell asleep. Assuming they could just walk right through them boys. And they couldn't. But i was upset to see the utilization and that's something i think we're going to have to go and listen to tomlin's oppressors and see what the rationale was in not utilizing him as a three back because the nice thing about james conner has been if they're up. They need james conner. If they're down. They need gyms james conner and that that just wasn't the there have been a couple of games. Sorry mike i'm curious then. This is just narrative trying to read. Tea leaves jason. If you're saying they fell asleep. I know it. Mike tomlin's a great coach but it might be. It would be very easy to look into the trap of the dallas cowboys and say we can make it through this and we. Maybe we can rest. James conner a little bit here. Maybe we don't have to use his body up in this matchup. that's that'd be. The hope is the team decided that down the whole game on i know doesn't make sense. You have the game plan installed. I've i've heard that several times from from people in the nfl round coaches once. The game plan is installed. They very often just stick with it. I will say this though and it happened in week one. There are weeks where they seem to turn the switch off for james conner where they look he does something was he got hurt. Yeah right well. He got he was. He was bad and also got her correct. Yeah he was. He was so bad and everybody came out and said he's done and he's washed you watch teams connor on the bench watches body language in this game. From the very beginning there was either a conversation about a blitz pickup or a mistake or something of that nature. There was a drive in the middle of the game where you imagined he'd been out there and even around the goal line the baltic farland into snell and he's sitting on the bench looking like somebody had a talking like morton's second short third and short fourth and short three plays in a row where he wasn't involved now all that being said he had that week one and then they just went back to entrusted him in week's future. And that's what i would expect. Cincinnati jacksonville the next two weeks zeke. Eighteen for fifty one. I'm you know he didn't look off on this game. Matchup was tough a yeah. I mean what. You're aiming for zeke. Now yeah i was gonna say it was about what was expected Was in sadly every time tony pollard. Touch the ball. It was like oh man we'll see cooked. Oh that's right. you're like. Oh fast now. But he's got the bye week. I think you'll probably see andy dalton. Pack that's my guess. We don't know for sure. Yeah had pulled the went off. I think it literally would have been different but because they actually lost game and he did have. He did the ham who the hamstring remember. Saturday there was that zeke may not even play and they have the by right. Yes all right. Melvin gordon phillip lindsay. They did not help your team. They did nothing. Jk dobbins this was one of the bigger disappointments on the week. A lot of expectations for jk dobbins the only way twelve thirty didn't look good. Tough matchup with the colts but yes go line. Work went to gus. That's something to pay attention to You should have tuned into sunday live. I would with me. I would rather not left bell. You can cut him. Four for eight. Ronald jones leonard fournette combined. For how carries. Do you know this answer. The answer is four. Yeah i remember hearing at the end of the game about setting the record for fewest rushing attempts by team in nfl history. That's just heaping. Just more pain onto brady when he was. He's no help. No help to. Tom brady action no he just was unrelentingly having to throw the football into the secondary that was beating them up. Yeah yeah it was not good. You brought up pollard. And how he looked being shot out of a cannon compared to zeke and so let's talk about chase edmonds because it really wasn't a bad game in the sense that his fantasy production was double digits for your league at three catches. Twenty five carries it seventy yards. But it wasn't at all what you expect it from him in this game and the truth is if you watch the football game. He looked absolutely identical to kenyan drake. Because we we. We're all speculating around the office. Like is the first and second down run scheming for arizona to blame for drake's production and not you know a decline in skills compared to chase edmonds because every play edmonds was getting in you know was a hearer. They're passing game route Third down before the injury now. He's the starter and he got all the opportunity. You wanted mean i. It was it was actually three percents. Who's of ninety. Three percent. Twenty five carries everything. You except no finot. Big breakaway runs. Nothing yeah i think. The scheming is to blame. Because we know we've seen chase edmonds is very good. We've we've watched it this whole season he's not. Usc was like five point. One to carry up to this point. And so i. I i think cliff kingsbury needs to take a look at that and opened things up for whoever. The running back is while you would. You would also hope for more targets. Get out of out of ninety three percent of our opportunities to get three targets. Was the problem in. You know you've got buffalo next week. That's an opportunity on the ground. Got seattle the week after but drake will probably be either limited or out and out of practice this week and you're gonna have to monitor whether he's back on the field. It does say that. I expect when drake comes back to take back the role. That was his when he left. Deondraye hopkins three for thirty. Only three targets in this game had previously been the receiving leader in football wolf It seemed like the team was avoiding Zebian howard for part of this game. I don't know why they didn't look too hopkins more but they were moving. The football also had a. He had a lot more targets. Three targets are what goes down in the in the box score but that's because targets pass interference. Don't those plays never happened in the box score and there were more or pass. Interference calls on howard. So hopkins was important to the game he won. He took away massive amounts of coverage by by being shadowed and moved the ball on pass. Interference calls saddam. Just just ignore this one. It was bad for fantasy. Yep tyler lockett seven targets four catches forty yards so couple down games for lock it in a row metcalf has targeted tyler lockett in four of the last five games in tyler lock. It's been under fifty receiving yards in for the last five games. Wow so ironically. Yesterday we're watching some of these Matchups in my son asked me said we'd rather have decay mecca for tyler lockett recipes on. I said definitely decay metcalf. Dj more just to for eighteen. Michael thomas from fifty one first game back well first game back and this was against the tampa bay buccaneers who shut him down in week. One up so fast and this was not as. Don't don't worry michael thomas lot better games. Adam feeling i mean between dealing in jefferson only five catches the mindless to for thirty eight. The vikings are the opposite kansas city chiefs right now like the wide receivers can't do anything because they don't have to throw the ball ever keep giving it the delving so you know half a feelings games under fifty receiving yards win. The game goes to plan. Get the ball lot. Bright chicago next week. We'll be. i'll be curious to see what they can do to slow. Dalvin cook down. The truth is they probably can't score a lot because they're chicago So the the recipe might be you know if dalvin cook gets amount to a lead. You know it's gonna be tough counting on the receivers. They're very talented. They're always open but they don't. They don't need to be used right now and they're playing better football. I mean minnesota winning football game. They are I have this marked as the buccaneer trio of posting pants. Chris godwin mike evans antonio brown six targets six targets. Five targets godwin. Three for forty one evans four for sixty four brown three for thirty one. This was a tom brady problem. Okay he just. He looked awful. Put them in order. Chris godwin tonio brown. Mike evans ooh so antonio brown. What you read off chris. Godwin was the snap leader. Ninety four percents of snaps evans. Eighty six antonio brown played seventy eight percent of the snaps. That's encouraging if you had picked up tony brown or you'd been stashing him in the five targets so i. I think we all agree. That chris godwin is would be the one yes. It's difficult to navigate at this point. Who's number the number two. And and make no mistake. Antonio brown carries way more risk than mike evans antonio brown could not even finish the season and could not even be a buccaneer at the end of the so. If i had pick. Who would i want on my fantasy. Roster going forward to be mike evans over antonio brown just for risk factor but if all three play the rest of the way that that's how i would order them all right this sometimes. The squeaky wheel gets the grease sometimes. The squeaky wheel falls right off. The car and hollywood brown five targets three catches thirty eight yards no touchdowns here and they were. Lamar was getting him involved early on in the game and then it just fell apart in. Hollywood brown has been outside the top thirty nine in seven of eight weeks. It's the same thing every week yet. A twenty one percent targets here. he's getting Probe a portion of nothing. Yeah it's irrelevant. When he hundred and seventy passing yards was what lamar jackson had the whole game and they won twenty four ten. Are you dropping. hollywood brown. Is he a minefield for your leak. You know we talk about putting putting the player on waiver. Wire that somebody else they will. They will sign him and they will start him and they will hope and pray now but he has had. His best game of the entire season was a wide receiver. Seventeen number the only thing i would say is man the playoffs the playoffs. They just they look juicy. But it might knowing that tenessee pittsburgh the next three at the next three are bad than cleveland jacksonville. Fantastic but he's already played philly. He's played washington. Cincy i don't know i think depending on obviously what's out there on the waiver wire tomorrow we'll probably have the conversation again. Yeah mark you. Can you can cut him sterling shepherd. He had eight targets in this game. I don't think it was a stinker. Corey davis goose. Henry ruggs no receptions. It was nelson galore. Who took it to one hundred. I mean we. We knew someone was going to get a deep bomb. I was hoping it was rugs. It was arguable. Yeah i'd rather learn at this point. Production and lawers actually been really really good the week prior was that weather game where you know nobody on either side of the ball did anything good but if you look back adler was wide receiver twenty four the watterson for ten the water twenty four again. Yeah it was just the week. I made him the start of the week that he disappeared into the weather again. That's right yeah that's my fault reaping all right rob gronkowski. He's got hussein pants from tom. Brady as well Six targets one. One catch now. Is it his his own pants or did they use a from. Do they all rub up against tom. Brady what i understand. It produced it. Yeah we ought producer brady produced it and he he had enough to go around to like six or seven pairs so he was changes constantly and distributing them among his teammates. Here throw these on. yeah. And i think bruce arians may have produced some two and you know tough tough tough stuff for tampa bay not what people wanted to see dam. Sure a lot of fantasy football teams loss night expecting some easy numbers in that game. Jared cook disappointing. Two thirty mark. Andrews joined the club. It is another conversation of. What do you do with marketing. Mark andrews is not a drop candidate. But you've had you've you've had three games where mark andrews was great the tight end one week one back to back weeks as the tight end three weeks four and five other than that though. How many games on the has mark anderson touchdowns is three. Yeah it's three. It's is he going to get a touchdown is this is the same exact problem of hollywood brown. It's a lamar jackson problem to baltimore. Ravens offense problem. It's baltimore ravens defense problem because they're fun nominal. The defense is great and so they don't need to throw the ball a lot and that's hurting. The office is really just a matter. Of if you get a touchdown from lamar jackson which can happen. Okay if not. The pie is too small to be split up in unless it's going to literally two players and no one else has targeted in the game. Lamar jackson just doesn't produce enough yardage for it for it to matter if mark andrews was a wide receiver. We'd be just as upset as we are with hollywood. But you're exactly right. He's a tight end so you keep him and you keep rolling them out there. Because he's got his good odds at a touchdown as any other tight but he's not what you drafted him to be which to be honest. It's it's pretty much. The ravens throughout its mark. Ingram to efficiency is gone last year. He only had four games outside of the top fifteen. He's already five. Yeah but the the funny thing is.

Herman Wins the Wyndham, Sandcastles at Bandon Dunes, Folds of Honors Lt. Col. Dan Rooney

"Now on the T., it's Mattie in the caddy. Here's Matt Berry and Michael. College. Out when you're weekly tea boxes punching each and every week, you'd think you know how can they get more dysfunctional the member guest week or just anything in general but alongside the Catty I am the Mattie this manning the head of the podcast. It's funny because I went on social media this week caddy, which is probably the worst thing we can do. Why would you do and everyone talking about how our Boy Herman? Jim. Herman, who wins the tournament is now in the same company is players like Tony seen now and that's the world of golf in a nutshell a dude that comes from nowhere to win a tournament is now in the same class if not a higher class than some people consider a world class player and Tony fee now and to me, that's golf dysfunction. In one tournament I. Yeah. But it's not one tournament. That's not what that was about this dude three chances that he's had to win three times he's converted. He's a time. PGA. Tour winner I know like they will not. I can't say that I now sprays and you know you. I Love Twenty female death, but you know he. Jim Herman one Barbara saw okay cool. Which is similar to Puerto Rico right now which the okay. But now you go wait a minute Greensboro that field was brady solid. You know preity salad with a bunch of dudes that you go. Yeah. Yeah I mean. Number One. Let me get this out the way right now. I'll give you credits on all three of your four picks. So you almost get there. I WANNA get that out of the way now. We can talk about my genius all. Take it easy with Genius Bra? Because all my guys made the cut and so like, yeah, you had the top. Four, three three your guys were inside the top ten which was nice. So you know that's all right Tom San top five. Okay. Whatever. Schematics just saying. So I'll. Pick. Whatever same thing program. Office. Compass. What I don't. Understand with Jim Herman is how fleeting need is he is very. In. He reminds me of like, Matt every. Like. That's a good one. Yeah. Like you don't ever hear from this is that is the epitome of what caddies call a lottery ticket. But. Somebody like met. Every Jim. Herman and. My lefty from Lake City. What about Tommy to gloves gainey before the whole incident you look at how ever it seems like he's playing better after the incident. Here. Here's my thing with Harman's. I always I hate prefacing things about to say because they sound main. NOT DISRESPECT BUT Talion? Mark. No no disrespect but. Up In their horse heading you bid. I Is Jim Herman good for goals? Yes, I think so I do because listen. Here's an Mrs. Why. That's the other one I'm trying to think of crazy Ted Potter Junior. He's another one like this. Miss Every single cut and win, and then miss every single cut and win. Here's. Jim Herman and guys like Matt every and Ted Potter Jr. the reason that they're good for golf is because. Cinderella still needs a chance to dance I agree that every in every now and then now don't get me wrong if there was a different cinderella every single week and there wasn't the dominant force of guys that are out there then yeah. It wouldn't be a good for golf but because we have Brooks Koepka, because we have Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas and like you. Just go down the list right there and it's like, okay, we got these dominating dudes, right? Then when Cinderella like Jim Herman happens you're like, Oh snap like anytime. This guy is near to lead. House wise. How come he's not spitting the bid I don't understand. Where a guy like Tony fee now he gets up near the top of the lead and spits the bid or I don't or Dustin Johnson like this dude is now old for four when he's got to leave going into a Sunday at a major, you're one hundred percent right in that. If you have an opportunity to close the door closed the door. Yeah and some of the quote unquote quote names. Have not been able to do that and. Jim Herman has. Out An name here's Here's where I differentiate between the two. Okay. If I'm. A casual goal fan not a golf nerd like you and I okay. Casual. Golf Fan. I see the. Jim Herman. Is flirting around the leaderboard. I'M NOT TURNING TO WATCH JIM Herman. Close the show. What would you turn to watch billy horseshoe? Now. Then I love Billy Ho but bill. That Ex. I, know. I mean, yeah, that is true but that's what I'm saying how many. How many guys are GonNa make you turn? How many how many? Of know the needle is. Anita right setting. Well, that's. If it's some of the group that you listed before I don't know I. Like right now, let's say column more cows is getting asked her it on turn it. Okay. Yeah. Me Too like I'll do that. But how about Webb Simpson websites is going into this fedexcup playoffs ranked number three. But yet if he was on top of the leaderboard, are you like Yo let me switch off at his NBA game real quick or Off It what? I like picking Webb Simpson are picks that I. I know you Webb Simpson for you is patch agreed for me. which by the way it web and an Patrick or off the table for each of us so we could do a little Gulf swap if you want, you know those are not. I can't pick web this week. Yes. You can. Then you can't. You can't repeat what don't you understand I already we decided this last week. If you want to repeat pick a do it's either well now. Okay no repeats okay. Fantasy Keeper League okay. That's cool. All right. So web and are so then do is off the table well, you can pick web and I could pick Patrick. That's true. Are you going to? You know probably now I know It's Again. Don't you understand about my my brilliance of of the pig team. Your luck pay you know what? So, can you can you help out the the patron on this week's podcast? Can you explain Oh and I have a bone to pick with you we'll get to that minute and we gotta talk about that caddy thing. An amateur. Oh you know what? Let's start there. Okay because. I'm glad you brought out. That's that's like a month ago but and it wasn't. It was just it was really days ago. Yeah. Yeah. How can you let? People. Copter. What for? The. Local caddy, what's he doing? Well, that's the thing when it's an amateur. So they're playing at band dunes bandon dunes has regular caddies that are that are there on staff and they're they're only getting paid by Bandon dunes and it's an amateur. You can't win money, which means you can't. Like cat he's not gonNA. Make a big paycheck. So apparently from what I have gathered, this guy's been caddying for less than a year. He's he's pretty much rookie end. He's caddying at a resort bandon dunes golf resort. Its right. So when he's caddying for a foursome or two or four forecasting one not and they jumped in man what he's he, he probably had done that hundreds of times with resort guests. And had no clue that jumping in a bunker and rubbing your finger around is is completely illegal. and. How? Did. You into a whole thing that's the that's the. That's the kick in the gut for the for the player who ended up losing, and the fact that it was on the eighteenth hole. which then caused the loss loss of whole on the last hole when was it was just it was. It was one of those things. It is the perfect storm for the worst case scenario possible and then the poor guy well, here's the thing as a as a former caddie. Like. Of course, I made fun of it online 'cause I'm catty like this. Would you do this? Do now has a nickname that his his name from now on, it's going to be sand castles. Right just like. You make a good point going back to that for a second that he's a resort caddy right? He's probably dumbness for the people that pay a lot of money to go play and and dunes real I'm you're giving him a pass. No I'm not giving him a pass. Don't get me wrong because I'm sure I am. I am without question certain ensure that there were probably other caddies throughout the week. Who made similar mistakes that no one caught. That no one even saul or thought about and with just like way that do what you know. It just happened that this dude, did it in the biggest moment of a match on the eighteenth hole there were cameras everywhere and then he tried to lie about it. I'm I'm definitely. I'm not giving him a pass, but I'm saying that I. I understand in that moment he just he went back to what he normally does. Like that's what's GonNa what's going to Happen Look Steve William Save me two strokes at a US Open at Shinnecock told, that story before, right. The only reason I didn't get a two stroke penalty because stevie wouldn't let go to rake and he had no reason to let me. But this kid when he jumped in the bunker, it happened so fast even the player didn't see it. Was In there, you wanted to test the sand to see what kind of law to see what kind of surface is player it was going to be playing out of, which is here's as a professional caddy you go. Why would you? What are you gonNa tell your player that's GonNa help. There's nothing that you're going to go. The sand is packed down like the player when he gets in and digs his feet in kind of going to figure that out like. When you players get in a bunker, they moved their feet around. So I sets a base and also tells them This is a little moist. People love that word might know. That's why I use it so. Yes and then I had a couple of people reaching out like why is that a big deal? Who Cares if he picked up the sand? Is If. That's you can't because in because what he could have done is let's say he did that and the the the SANTRAC liner was right under their. Then he could have said to his player, Hey, heads up man to set the liners right here you're on top of the liner and that would have changed the shot. But that's not allowed, you're not allowed to test the surface. Of A bunker, which is in effect there as a as a penalizing type of area, not a hazard, but it's to be treated like. You're not supposed to hit it there. So you don't get the benefit of let me check this out feel around. It's like. Grounding your club in hazard the reason that you're not allowed to do that is because you're not supposed to hit it there. So it's supposed to be a penalty, which means you're supposed to be a lot of uncertainty in that shot I mean it's just. There's a lot of reasons why That doing something like that is illegal that being said. Making fun of a caddy for making a mistake like that is the nature of caddying. Like most caddies, get their nicknames from mistakes they've made play got his nickname because he kicked the ball in the fairway, right? Do North got his nickname because he pulled a compass out when his player with the wind. It's a compass. That's said he pulled a compass out where? which now ironically. Is You're going to be called. Grammar. Combat I'm GonNa, call you I'm call you spell city. Are Now phonics. You know how many nicknames I got man with yet call me phonics I don't care whatever. But that's what I'm saying. So people lost their minds on your poor guy how you're gonNA attack them like this was not even an attack. It was fun that this news nickname is now going to be saying castle but did later on, go back on and say, Hey, look make sure Dan. Does a lose his job over something like this like you shouldn't lose your job. Packages to Gulf with this. That's what I'm saying I told him straight up I've never been abandoned dunes. But when I go like I want him to caddy for me and I was being serious. I really do one of caddy for me. Hey. Well, we're willing to podcasts from bandon dunes on this whole thing how you so anyone go up. You Know Hook. US UP After that's fine. That legs Eddie, right the first time. Look. US amador's one of the Great Gulf to watch. But it'd be came national golf story perhaps more than your local insurance agent Jim Herman. winning. The tournament. Fact that the guy who won the the guy who lost was so humble. In losing in such a a took it so well. Made Him. It was it was great for golf. It was great for golf that a guy that blade that he lost with. So humble and the guy he lost to ended up winning the whole thing because from Dow, there's always GonNa be that question what if? What if? And so you know I feel bad for the caddy because that's one of those. Things that you're, you're always gonNA live with that you know, and hopefully after a few years, you're able after a year you're able to at least laugh about it and look back and be like not going to believe man you'll saying like five years from now a sandcastle. Nickname sand castles. One. Yeah. You know what a great story that's going to be to tell you know there's plenty of stories on the PGA tour like I said of guys who have messed up an earned nicknames that way so. Can, you do me a favor and do do the patrons a favor? I. Can what Fedex. Plate like. Help us out here windows, start. Right now. BOSTON, yet that this is the first one this year, there's only three while from now on from now only three. Okay. The northern trust is moves around last year it was at Liberty National Patrick Green is defending champ this year. The first Fedex Cup event is in Boston at. Boston. So Yard and we used to be Deutsche Bank Bright Top one, twenty five an everyone is in everybody's in the field i. think the crazy thing. Now like Jim Herman was. One hundred and ninety eighth or some. He had no chance of making the fedexcup he wins and now he's in. But Shane lowry outside the Fedex Cup, when I saw him at the airport, he was going to be one of my sleeper picks as well. He played his way into it. Sergio Garcia is not in the Fedex Cup. That's not surprising. He because he only has twelve he only had twelve starts and didn't have he. He's just not been playing well. Yeah. That's what I'm saying like he hasn't had a lot of start now the thing for a guy like tiger woods. Is he going to check out O'Shea Yo say. Gee. Tiger Woods. He. Knows he knows what's up. Tiger. HERE'S THE QUESTION MARK Just anyone believe the type is going to be his back is going to be to do three in a row. We'll find out what if he tries to do that? Then what he's going to have to do is play four out of five weeks right? That's not okay. So here's the deal with tiger. I believe that Tiger if he does not play himself into the tour championship this week. We'll shut it. That's exactly right. Shut down and said US Open that's what I said like us. He's not going to go play. He's not gonNA play Boston than next week in Chicago and the following week tour championship right I've said it a million times on this podcast. He's going to do what he can to get the swings in that he needs if he stays relevant in the Fedex Cup stay around but if not go forward to the major still quickly just because we embark on this because it's a weird Kobe nineteen pandemic version of the fedexcup playoffs what happen exists. Instead of the usual quadrupling of points versus what's available during the regular season, the points where tripled. So for example, the one of the first two events. Of the playoffs fifteen hundred Fedex Cup points instead of two thousand and that it Offsets Limitation Thirteen tournaments, which is what we had this year including the players, the three majors, and the WGC Dell Technologies. So at the conclusion of Northern Trust, the top seventy Fedex Cup points will advance to the BMW championship. Now that the points up for grabs. Shaved by a quarter, it could be more challenging to survive this according to the PGA tour, what they're doing for the changes of it. So there are modifications to it and it's a little bit confusing because we still have major championships to play and I. think that's probably golf's biggest hurtled caddy is typically this is the end of the season before the wraparound starts as we embark. Towards football but now they're kind of being wedged in there. And it's a little bit anti-climatic. Asked me. I? Just yes. I agree with that because of how strange this season is in the other thing too is the guy who started the year inside the top one, twenty five but didn't make the playoffs. They're still good to go for next year. Right. Because of the way that the season is played out with the tour has decided to do is make sure that everybody keeps their job moving forward. So the playoffs this season is just like ed we'll do three quick things to get some cash real quick right and you know what are the major counter? It's not a really now that's open now on foot. The, let's go to winged foot in what are you getting ready for masters. Yeah and how about the as soon as we finished recording the podcast last week, the masters comes out in as no fans. Right after I said I was finally called to your side of adult I. Don't think we should do this without fans. The masters must listened to the podcast and been like we don't care what you think. Now we're going to do the opposite whatever you said. Lucia I'm not here saying that aesthetically it's not going to be amazing to see Augusta national in that way also, but there is nothing like roars at Augusta National. You know my thoughts on this. I saw that and I was like how about those people by the way who went and got postponed in April like dude by November were go good. Good out of problem we'll, be, eating. Sandwiches tomorrow. Nothing out. All right. Let's get to our picks and a you've got a special guest joining you today. Off the.

Late you're Dan Rooney coming up next. It is my distinct pleasure to bring in someone who I could call a friend, but also somebody who I am so. Jealous of because of what his job was major Dan Rooney who is the founder and president of folds of Honor Foundation First off. Major Dan Rooney How you doing as strange times everyone, how are you doing? Yeah we're. So we are hanging in there and all during a strange it's actually got promoted some tenant Colonel Dan now. So that was one good thing that happened during Kobe. WHO Also Woking Fighters yet. Thank you. Thank you very much and Yeah. Maybe we're hanging in there I'm a big believer. God's got a plan and You know thankfully you know my family in France. I haven't experienced of you know any serious impacts from from Colbert. Circle but certainly. Prayers for all those who has but it's interesting. Sometimes, things have to fall apart in order to come together with my sense is that. God has a bigger plan to refocus on on the things that matter both. our families take care of each other and So I'm always trying to find a bright light in in sometimes he's Dr Challenge about one tower you same thing men, I'm you know me man I'm the guy I love looking for the Silver Lining I. Love Looking For the light at the tunnel in. I'm I'm the one who is always like. What from anything bad will help people get closer together and closer to each other. You know I've rule number one, love one another. So like how can we do that better? How can we as a species just do that better man but I'm you know I'm faulted unfold I'm. I'm jealous I'm jealous of the fact that you flew F16's like that is one of the coolest. Let me tell you something. There are. Things that people don't know until they actually do something one. People. Still argue that golfers aren't athletes until. Other athletes even you laugh their people until you as athletes, another sports if you ask a football player who plays golf and has played in the super bowl or an MLB player who's played in the world series or hockey players, you name it you name a sport and you ask those elite athletes if golf is a sport and they'll all tell you. Yes and golfers athletes. One thing that I had no clue about is that when it comes down to it, the greatest athletes that we have our fighter pilots. And people who right now are like, what come on man? No, that's that's not true listen. I got the fly in a fight and the training one of the I. was in San Antonio. And it was thirty eight that's exact-. Yes. The T thirty eight, which in the original top gun, the t thirty eight played played the MiG correct correct. That is correct Yep. And so. I went in the t thirty, eight and. was. Not asked before we got started hey, what's this GONNA be like? In the dude goes, it's GONNA be. Like the hardest workout you've ever done. And you're probably not going to feel right for a day. And he was beyond true and the fact that you guys do that as training five to six times. Like Righetti that's not. People don't understand the workout you have to have in their mental. So let's start with this. How did you get into flying fighter jets? So it's it's it's good everything great in my life is directly connected to the game of golf. Like. Every moment that's changed my path and I was twelve. And I was playing in a little golf tournament at the Store Country Club in Oklahoma where I grew up I. Bad. A fighter pilots name was Steve Steve Court right. Yeah he was the COOLEST, I've ever met and I was like you can't be this cool and old and said, yes, you can. new my first band crush and I'm like I didn't do. It was like I'm going to be pilot. I WANNA grow and be like the Court Ryan. He's still one of my best friends and so that's what the seat was planned but obviously twelve. So couldn't go fly fighter jets at that time. And when often play golf the versity Kansas, and then left there join the airforce went to officer training in the off to flight school. And just as a as a as a stat. This really fascinating and So you go through a thing called pilot training undergraduate pilot training up takes two and a half the whole program takes two and a half years. government spends eight million dollars per pilot training us. And Eight million per pilot in from the start of the program to the finish. Only four point. Eight percent of the people will make it through the program to become a fighter pilot. So it is by far no, I'm not I'm not saying I could be an. got a lot of seal buddies, but it is by far the most expensive highest attrition rate of any military training. There is why? The main reason is that so many people don't make it. I mean you got a brief glimpse of it when you went up and thirty eight. But. It's a you know the F sixteen goes two and a half times either sound it pulls nineties you're running the most sophisticated you know computing device. In the world dropping bombs, you know shoot missiles fueling I mean need is just a carnival ride that combines not only physical aptitude but then Ben's still an emotional aptitude to be able to operate it. You know those speeds under insane amounts of pressure. Combat. you just you got it or you don't. I'd love to say, Hey, you know I worked really hard which I did but it is You know something like give Gory to God for that I've had the opportunity to be flying fighters for twenty one years and still doing that then at Eglin air force base and desktop forward in the reserves now down there and we. Doing it But yeah, it's You know it's an incredible program and it's funny. You Know How god brings. Things. Together in your life and send you on trajectories that you don't ever expect. But if it wasn't for golf and being a fighter pilot, you know I never would have I have the had the platform to start folds of honor. and. What made you? What made you decide to start there because obviously golfer you started I which then through golf meeting a fighter pilot becoming a fighter pilot but then you went and played golf in college in. Now you finished college, you go through fighter pilot training become a fighter pilot but golf is kind of staining your life and so how does folds of honor come about? So my dream was to be, gopro on a fighter pilot obviously did make it onto or couldn't make it onto her based on being a fighter pilot. So the next best thing was to be a class, a PTA member. So the guys that work at the golf courses in in my case, you know build on the I just loved the game but I got back from my second tour of duty in Iraq and at this point, I, believe in my dream job description pretty average guy honestly you know from. The way I was living Friday I'm a fighter pilot I'm like Oh hold on. Let me just. Stop right there. There's no such thing as F sixteen fighter pilot that did two tours in Iraq. I'm just the average guy no. Sorry brought. Hugged I agree on the maybe the accomplishments I, but I was living very selfish life. I'll put it that unlike hotly average. you know flying fast jets and playing golf and drinking too much whiskey and you know part time that and. It was It was an intervention in my I really believe you know personally and we've helped a lot of people as a result but I I wasn't I wasn't the best person myself. I'll leave it at that. and I ended up, it came back for my second were of of three trips to Iraq and I was on a commercial airline flight with twin brothers. Identical twin brothers, Corporal Brad Buckling brought his twin brother Corporal Brock home from Iraq who had been killed. And that night I watched this whole family on the tarmac including his four year old son and despite the captain's request half the people got up and left the airplane It's like one o'clock in the morning and. I've really felt a calling from God. He picks the least among us for sure and qualify thereby felt a calling to do something. For this little four year old boy that had lost his dad and in combat and for me. I'm a big believer that education is the bridge to opportunity inequality in this country. And So our mission you know started very small, but he never wavered on started foles on our literally above my garage. And in Oklahoma and The Primary Vision which I mentioned we haven't ever strayed from to honor the sacrifices of our minute women in the military who killed or disabled by providing educations for their family ice. And you know again, turned to the game of golf and started a event called Patriot Golf. Day Let me about my garage at the PGA America. Agrees to get behind this concept of Patriot which we'll talk about but it's Labor Day, weekend we've got. You know four or five thousand golf courses that sign up to host. Patriot Golf Day, and that's simply is collect donations for us. So we asked people to donate at least an extra dollar when I go tee it up and. We've raised just through Patriot Golf. Day. About fifty million dollars and we give golfers the opportunity to play their most aerobic meaningful round of the year and pay those donations forward to military families who desperately need their help. From Patriots Day Golf. GimMe the best story from what you started at foals of honor. What's the one story that you've heard from family or a kid that's meant the most to you. Don't that as regards to golf, it's easy and we've got you know almost thirty thousand recipients. Now there's some amazing stories out there. There were two young boys that reached out to me bat and Daniel Cash. And they hand wrote a letter and they went on to describe their their dad Chris cash who'd been killed in Iraq. And that they had grown up playing golf together and that they had saved scorecards like we all do over the years and that. In order to remember their dad, they would pull out the old scorecards. And they would replay the rounds of Golf that they played with their dad before he was killed in Iraq. and. I got this letter and you know I'm really proud to say that we sent both those young band to college and they're going off you know or living successful lives But that was early on in the store to fold Toronto and it just you know just. Just reminds freedom is not free. Every day is a gift and we live in a country. That is is perfect. I think it's the best in the world but there's less than one half of one percent that wake up every day when I die for it and there's there ain't no other country in the world. With with the military that we have here it's about taking care of their families and always being reverend to the sacrifices that have been made. And to think that. All of those men and women volunteers. Well, that's one of the things that you said our countries. Definitely, our country is not perfect, but it's still the best. It's. It's I firmly believe exactly what you said we're we're we're not perfect but. I do think we are the best in the world and and that definitely shows and. It is amazing. What you're what you have been able to do, and it's IT'S I don't know that there are the proper words of gratitude that can be used. To talk about Patriot Golf Day unfolds of honor but when you think of where Patriots Day, where Patriot Golf Day started where it is now are even you in all of how? Great. This has become. Yeah I mean in my that's the human side of us, right the the lens that we limit. All too often the art of the possible But when you look at, you know God's power. in on nip attendant and and as good as it is you know that it's it's his and folded honors an you know an awesome ministry and. You know we're about God and country with with no apology and you know I'm the one that would save during all this and we've you know awarded as I mentioned almost thirty thousand scholarships. So one hundred, fifty, million dollars out the door to. Spouses and kids who four thousand families there in school right now and courtesy of the you know the great donors that we have. But it's just You know this beautiful irony i. Fold shares with everybody that's around it and donate to it that when you reach out to help someone that you're actually the one being health. And we do it in a fun way to go play golf. Help somebody I mean how good is that? Budweiser and help somebody. Go to a NASCAR race and help somebody I mean we're all we're all pros right Like to have fun and when you can combine having fun and doing good, it's is just magic elixir you know of and we've always stay true to life is short. And Have Fun I've Lost Friends in the fast jet business and in combat. and in life and So when I promise you the men and women billion plus of sacrifice their lives for this country, they would want you to celebrate and have fun and love American and get back to it, and one of the things I'm really proud of to sitting on the phone with you is that forty one percent of the recipients that folds in honor of orgies. And with all the racial unrest that's going on and things need to change in this country I, I'm a total believer in that, but I also have a believer that we're not going to change anything unless we fix the education system in this country. Gives people who gives them opportunity and I'm so proud that you know heck nearly half of our recipients are minorities, and if you WanNa make a difference and you believe black lives matter and we want to help these people that haven't gotten their fair shake health and get an education and we're standing by Fulton honored to deliver that. and. That comes back today. Where do we start education education education because education means opportunity and if everyone can get a great opportunity and education than everyone has more opportunities at greatness in whatever that they want to do. So now some golfing fighter pilot stuff too 'cause I gotta ask these. Questions to cause as the golf caddy GRANOLA heavy there I've. This not heavy man it's not heavy when you talk about helping people do things and better their lives that's never for me. I don't feel like that's heavy. I feel like that's enlightening and it's like you WanNa. Reason to help. Here's a reason to help, and here's an easy way to do it. That includes. Golf. So in golf for you, what was the most challenging part of your game? What's the hardest shop the hit, and then flip that to? I don't know if you can do it without getting technically in the weeds but what was the heart is pilot maneuver to get comfortable with in a fighter J. So, those two things because you're boats. So where you at? Well Yeah. The hardest shot and golf everybody is you know the the twenty five, thirty yard bunker shot. So that's you know for me I mean, that's kind of the standard answer I would say that you know the the the difference between my my neighbor in also eased back and forth from Nashville now. But lives on about five thousand acres Garth Brooks. here in Oklahoma and thing that song thank God, for unanswered prayers. And I would just say if I, was a better potter I probably wouldn't have been a fighter pilot probably could've made it playing golf. So thank God you know you didn't answer my prayers because I you know I've been on different. You're right. I think I've done a lot more good than I would have if I was out there on. So I'm remarkably average But But I would say the common ground this kind of cool between being a fighter pilot and the GOP. Golf world is it's all about the target, right? Right and as a Golfer I was I mean it was always. Find a way to get it in the whole right to get it to the target right and as a fighter pilot skills and unlearn playing competitive golf really translated to combat and you know when you're nervous out there and you got an eight footer and you gotTa make it to win the bed or. Do whatever I mean you get those nerves go on but you're able to settle your your your mind in those high stress situation. So I feel like in some crazy way that playing competitive off at a high level. And let against Tiger for a couple of years college amateurs and NC. Double A.'s and doing all this that that mindset translated as a fighter pilot. And I would say that. As. The pressure is a fighter. Pilot combat is much more intense and I became much better at dealing with pressure but that foundation I had as a golfer. Served me well, there's no doubt I mean the hardest thing to do a fighter pilot is is dropped a bomb in close proximity to friendly forces on the ground. So we call it danger close. And if we're dropping a bomb within a basically five hundred or so feet. Of A good guy on the ground they call those bombs. Then there's a guy called J, tack on the ground and he's talking to my sixteen and he gives me clearance to drop on the bad guys right there. But if the good guys are so close that this young man has to give me his initials over the radio when I sit there and I write them down when he clears me to drop this bomb and knowing the finality of that moment travelling at those speeds in the middle of night over Iraq and people's lives are depending on you put a bomb on time on target. Definitely, the most challenging moments We argue the most rewarding moments in my life as a fighter pilot. When you're able to do your life and do your job and and save lives on the ground. Man. I got butterflies just thinking about that is that is that when? When you're in a fighter jet and in combat like that. Do. You feel butterflies similar to. The first tee jitters or having that put to make the cut or win a tournament or like what what? How would you compare those is saying that dame emotion, right? It's the back nine Augusta. I've never been there during the tournament but same emotion that you like. It's so charged right there's so much pressure, but you have to find a way to slow it down and perform, and that's why my my ability to deal with pressure. Is a fighter pilot grew so much and there's so many techniques that that we are taught. Through our routines and our preparation that would become what we call learned effective, which is the goal of that's a psychology term but essentially, you do it so many times and you sit there and your mind over and over and over again to it on on the ground that your mind has, you know a certain autopilot switch. That you've learned this task so well that it comes. For me pressure-proof. Time slowdown though too. Yeah Yeah Yeah especially when you got a bomb in the air, you know an average bomb that we're dropping over there going to be the air for thirty five seconds or so. and then when that bomb hits. and then you know they on the ground there like you know good hits good hits Dozer like you to this huge breath and you're like, thank God. Right. 'cause, you're just trying not to screw up it's a break even over there in combat because screwing up being somebody could lose a life. And Those are those tough times but thankfully, I've hit a lot of them out of bounds on a golf course but ever ever out of bounds and and the fighter jet when it counted. was there a moot? was there a move or maneuver that you pulled off that afterwards? Another member of the service or like whoever was on the ground came over and found you and said Y'all. Like, that was bananas Dow was you know what I mean so I'm saying. I don't want to ask you what your favorite maneuver was that you ever did but I wanNa know what maneuver you did that other people came to you and was like. Come on man like seriously you pulled that off. I would I would say this the fighter pilot community is Ruthless. And that No. News when you've gone out and done something well is the best compliment you're gonNA get when they don't say any it's. It's an expectation Expectations and the consequences are so high. Do. something. Well, there's this term that we use is called it hot is the highest compliment you can get in the fighter pilot World Yay and we abbreviated we abbreviated it Sierra hotel. And I've gotten one of those in my career, but the story is classified I could tell you have to kill you. I can't even better basket like. Twenty one years. Well, here's how I know how brutal and ruthless the community of fighter pilots is is after I took my run. And came back with an empty airsick bag. After. After my pilot grabbed three extra ones and I was like out what's he doing on need those and other pilots Nodded and then. They tried to make me pass out and I would and pass out. And did an extra run still wouldn't pass out and when we got back, they said how was it and I held up the empty airsick bag said, what does this mean and they looked at my pilot said, it means you're pilot is not good. Enough was ruthless just. Ruthless. So. The fact that you did a pot run that is that is awesome. Okay. So you have that moment as a fighter pilot greatest moment as a golfer. Round. Greatest moment. I mean at this year. Yeah. You on the golf course not so sold Yvonne or Patriot Golf Day. Yeah so my senior year NC Double A. Championships playing at the honors course. Tiger won the NC double that year that was his sophomore year and its final year at Stanford? And I was on the seventeenth hole and my golf coach Ross. Randall God rest his soul was anymore. And he said, we got Birdie the last two holes for us to make the cut. And sew I birdied seventeen and eighteen The University of Kansas made the cut at the NC Double A. Championships in nineteen ninety six. But that was My greatest moment because I got to do it from my team. Well and what's inherently an individual sport but those moments where you just gotTa, get it done by the grace of God I i. got it done. What's better than when their coach says he this is what you gotTa do, and then you pull it off like that's the that's. That's it. Man That's that's that is engulfed a shit hot moment. Right there tears. Yep It is and I failed many both to the time that. Time, would it matter the last tournament of my college career? Championships. But all I have that with me for the rest of my life. Who's your favorite PGA tour pro to watch? Oh. It's easy Gary Woodland. So hearing dear, brother and dry. I had the privilege of married his wife Gabby a few years back and. Folds of honor on his bag and whereas volition America that that you know we created the Puma makes. And Yeah.

It's this great good things happen to great people that. You know that's what he hid. It US Open last year, and then the chip on chip on seventeen. I just I just couldn't believe I've never had somebody like new really well, do something huge in life. And it was wildly emotional watching that. Yeah. It's all right.

November 25th: Clay Caldwell and Kevin Carr HR 3

"This is mornings with kale and northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. Best praying best educated best equipped free to fight seven thirteen a thirteen ten minute k. k. a. dot com mornings with gail by and local via the auto collision specialist studios. Alright nearly seventy loveland businesses vowed that they will not restrict their operations further this as larimer county along with twenty one other counties moved to the states a safer at home level red clay caldwell is owner of a better gumbo and spoke yesterday s conference at his downtown loveland. Restaurant joined by morgan herrington a brewer and co owner of grimm brothers of brew house. Klay joins us this morning. Clay at thank you for what you are doing. For small businesses particularly restaurants that have been so hard hit during this pandemic all right so lamoure county went to into that level. Read yesterday at five pm. Please tell me that you're still open. Good morning bill. Thank you very much for having me today. We are actually closed because tomorrow we are served. I mean no. I'm sorry today. were closed. Because they're serving about twenty two hundred twenty five hundred free meals to the communities and we're doing it out by restaurant and right now. The restaurant is packed with volunteers. Prepping food and that begins that can be Wonderful news because you at that gumbo have been supporting so many that have been so hard hit during the pandemic. But i have to ask the question. Have you heard anything from the county commissioners. Have you heard anything from the department of public health. As under this level read you were supposed to close to in person dining in your restaurant and you said basically enough is enough that we did. We believe being science or numbers of what is going on in lamoure. County is not Being represented correctly these should not be at read the fifth we were yellow before and they kicked orange and went to read. Our numbers are less than half of state numbers and yet they used to say numbers to shut us down. If it's the second time but done this in a year and the first time we had the federal pt money helps a great deal But now there's nothing. There's no provision the governor has nothing to About either and we're asking for a dialogue that county our health department to you know. Help us use a plan that we're calling the mesa county. Five star variants program allows certifications variances to be given to businesses that tocqueville they've requirement and Provided flotation last week at yellow. We've managed our business effectively. Everything was wonderful This week they say that we're not table or maintaining their health and wellbeing of our community. That's simply not true. Restaurants are highly governs by health department and We maintain a level of safety that most businesses aren't aware so We're we're humbling asking for a dialogue that we can show them that we can do what we have done. In the past and maintain a low number hearing lamer found point at this point in time. Clay about survival but it's also about exercising personal responsibility. I mean i had to laugh. It was such a pleasure meaning yesterday. And i know it's a very busy day for you at a better gumbo in downtown loveland but i had to laugh when you said when it comes to all the sanitizing that you're doing you could be doing surgery and make more money by doing it exactly. Oh yes very true. I mean we have for one on every shift is designated to be nothing sanitize so You know we use a fog machine that kills ninety nine point nine percent of anything syria virus and we use that twice a week and it has multiple week staying power so Our staff they're healthy. They have abided by the rules that we have put in place Their safety is important to us. Just like our clientele our guest. Why would we want to bring harm to people that you know. probably money. That doesn't make any sense. It's it's just as simple request. Talk to give us the ability to do what we've done. Maintain our numbers were not denver We don't have those numbers. Were not fort collins even Because of the college and maybe some other things and treat us like that. 'cause i remember are less than the lane county yesterday. It is about personal choice. I agree with you and we should be treated as adults and my heart goes out to restaurants owner small businesses as. I'm sure you're well aware. And this number is probably gone up. You had Colorado restaurant owners association saying that seventy nine percent of small restaurants. Small business restaurants will never ever re open. And as i said earlier this is about survival. And it's particularly heartbreaking that. You're looking at this lockdown once again Right before thanksgiving. What does that mean for your employees employees about thirty people. Many of them are single parents. They make a good living here. But you know a three hundred dollar unemployment check does not even begin to pay for their telephone bills much less arenas and insurance and you know and so. I'm very protective of my staff and i i'm fighting for them and then i'm fighting for the other businesses that atta boy but no one ever listens and we have the influence so It's time to do what's right and support Small business we have a right to survive. our survival doesn't mean that other people have to die either of very You know off base arguments so we're excited here Proud to be doing we had. This will make us a little over. Eleven almost felt thousand equally fed very close it and which the help of our community and a grant we received. And we're just. We're doing what we not do. And that is our community This isn't about greed this is about. You know we're gonna stand up for people and we can do it in a healthy manner. It's not hit or miss a tremendous amount of middle ground. But we send operate in. And says i would feel the spring with the weather allows patio so That's where we are. I think it's the difference between making a taking. I should say a nuanced approach. Not a one size fits all approach as opposed to coming down with an iron hammer now. Clay governor jerry poll said yesterday afternoon colorado businesses that refuse to comply with the restrictions To slow the spread of covid nineteen could lose their licenses. I'm sure you're aware of that. How far we take this. I may not agree with Our governor on a lot of issues. But i do feel that Make good decisions during the crazy Operate no governor was prepared to deal with what things happening. Kids people are in a bubble. They're getting paid their paychecks. Their basic counts have not been affected by this. And i i think would be wisdom that our head businessman of our sake to say let me hear from the people who are affected. Maybe there is something that we know how to govern our restaurants communities that are self idea. I think that's where If i was there i would. I'd be picking up the phone and colleagues like hopewell's and saying i i really hear your show me how we can work together. Make our community. Safe and i believe that that could happen if it does We'll come to some agreement because having a bass number of hospitality. Employ out of work creates havoc and kissel drain on the system of the states. That we don't have so if he will help us help him. We i think we have a meaningful dialogue and understanding. This isn't politics about politics for me. I don't care if you read yellow blue. It is about a community that has the right to survive. And that's where we are. You're certainly a big part of the community. Is survival getting behind this effort as a you have and hope to stay in touch with you so grateful for all that you have done for the community throughout the pandemic but Certainly appreciate your taking the time as well as once again. You are reaching out to help those in need today. Feeding upward of twenty two hundred people clay caldwell owner of one of the best restaurants. Not only in loveland but throughout the state. Better gumbo and downtown loveland. Thank you so much. Keep up the good fight. Happy thanksgiving and no once again or that. You have our gratitude and respect very much.

Never no not expecting this at all. No of course not but asking everyone that that. I'm talking to this morning. What what are you grateful for this thanksgiving. Because i mean we've all been so whipsawed and just thrown into the the blender it feels like as a result of well politics and the election and of course the pandemic so trying to flip the script a little bit and look at the glass half full. So what are you grateful for this thanksgiving. I would say the thing. I'm most grateful for some stability in my in my family. I mean my Even with the pandemic My wife is a teacher so she was so working and my my son. My son still have their jobs and we can still make ends meet. And as as bad as the pandemic has been and and as much as we've had to adjusting we are surviving. And i'd say that's probably what i'm most grateful for. Beautifully sad beautifully said and certainly things are different this year. But i still think as we take a look around. We have so much to be appreciative of. So that's what. I'd like to focus on this thanksgiving eve or drunks giving as they have spitting i mean. Did you realize that. I mean you. You have more serious. A fatal traffic accidents on the wednesday before thanksgiving. That's nuts. i didn't. I did not know that i i see growing up. We didn't have like my kids have wednesday off. They have today off From school. But when i grow up i feel like i feel like the old man you know back in my day We didn't get. When did you want to school both ways county but we always remember. My parents had a pick me and my sister up from school on wednesday afternoon. And then we drive to To to to visit relatives that nights or we're getting up early on because we had to drive like two hours to go to my my family and it was either that or get up early on on turkey day and drive. So i appreciate the fact that the kids actually have a have a little bit of a breather here. It gives us a chance to do some things to prepare for that. But it's it's it's been different. So you know i. I was never growing up. Wednesday night was the getting settled in for for turkey day. Gotcha i didn't spend as much time in bars. I guess there you go. That's that's the short. That's the kind of took the long way around the barn there. but that's the shorthand version. There you go all right. Yeah all right so let's talk about well. The one and only new movie in theaters. This week is at a turkey or not. The crudes a new aids. I'm not gonna call it a turkey turkey. It'd be like You know like a turkey with a spider head to it. Because in this movie it takes place in prehistoric times and they just make up creatures and this which is kind of fun because you know even the ice age movies. They they at least tried to be like well. They were sabertooth cat. So we're gonna put a sabertooth cat in the movie that's when they're like Wolf scorpions yes. We've got those. This movie never existed on the planet but the cruise is a sequel crews new age. Is he on the crudes which came out about seven years ago. I can't a group of tiv men and his family who got the ended up having to leave their home because of a volcanic eruptions or something like that and they're on the on the road and their traveling and this when they meet this other family. That's less i guess less neanderthal. There maybe a little more A homo habilis than homo neanderthalensis people. So you have this sort of this culture clash of very primitive too much less primitive where they can do irrigation and farming and they're trying to sort of resolve their differences two different families. It's kind of an absurd premise. But it works and if you like the first crudes he should like this one. It's it's kinda loud. It's got the same task coming back. You got a lot of same humor. And then what. they're fighting. The these insane creatures from prehistoric times that never really existed. It just takes it kind of over the top in this bazaar colorful Not to be taken seriously sorta way. Oh okay john. Norma's flying centipede to things that are horrifying to meet in the wild them together. And those are the monsters in this movie enough. All right turning to net flicks. The christmas chronicles to this is a sequel obviously to christmas chronicles which came out. Two years ago That one had had chris kirk douglas. Kurt russell kirk douglas kurt russell plane santa claus and he doesn't actually a fantastic job at santa claus. He the really kinda works in the role and that one was on netflix. Two years ago they've done sequel. The the the first one was about these kids that were sort of sour on christmas. Meaning santa. i'm gonna slate kind of save christmas this one. They ended up in the north pole. So there are a little more tied into the whole christmas spirit thing and they What the Having to do is stop this. We were no from trying to destroy christmas all together. I what hey. This is a formula. And we've seen about a billion movies with the kids. Who have to save christmas with santa but know what when it comes to like romantic comedies and horror films sometimes christmas movie. You kinda wanna see the formula you wanna see the cliches all over again and and that's what this does i mean it's nothing terribly new but that's okay. It's heart warming little christmas story. Why has it. I'm having a day all over again. Compare and contrast to kurt. Russell versus milk gifts. You know it's so funny is. There is some weird connective tissue to it because a well mel gibson was really crotchety and fatman. But but this one caresses a little edgier of santa claus. He's like i don't do the whole thing. And you know the little more a little more chiseled grizzled but he's still. He's still jolly but in in sort of like a little more pragmatic jolly. He's he's less mickey rooney from the rankin bass christmas specials and more You know maybe leaning a little closer to fat me on our or something like that. Okay turning to hillbilly elegy on a netflix. And don't mean to steal your thunder but what i'm coming across is quite interesting. It's just say it's not getting rave reviews. Its getting raked over the critical. Kohl's thank you a little bit. I can always count on you. Kevin to the taste. Yeah well see. It's based on a book But it made a section of the book made its way several years ago through cable news and interviews and everything like that Which is about sort of like a little bit of a love letter to hillbilly culture. It's about a kid who in ohio and southern ohio but had roots in the In the hills of kentucky and the story is about him as he's grown up and he's gone to college he gets pulled back To take care of his family because his mom has a relapse with drug addiction. And it's It's less about the politics that the books is very much about the politics of the region and it's less about that and more about just sort of like the interpersonal family structure. And it's got some good performances directed by ron howard. Got any adams's a good job as the mom and glenn close actually does i mean. She doesn't award worthy performance in this transformative performances. The grandmother The i think part of the reason is getting raked over the coals. And this i took i. Didn't i had an issue with this as well as every single second of screen time is trying to win an award. Every seen that adams is in is our oscar clip every every moment that you're on screen. They're they're pushing buttons and it's less about. It's less a movie that pushes buttons than it is a movie about just pushing buttons everywhere like this is like baby. Yoda at that the And the console for the mandalorian ships put whatever can get the little exhausting exactly. It's like a strike opposes. I'll tell you when i'm acting. Yeah well vox took a real shot at it. Saying hillbilly elegy allah netflix. Does it feel so inauthentic. And i think that's what you're alluding to. Yeah well i think part of it is. I think i've not read the book. So i i don't know firsthand but i've talked to people who made its round so the media. The this is that there's a lot in the book that's not kinda that doesn't come out in the movie so it and like i said a lot of a lot of. It's about the a lot of the book. I understand is about like said the politics of the reasons region and it kind of 'cause i don't think he wants to tackle that because that's a much larger issue so it's more telling just sort of like the family story Where i think certain people felt maybe parts were ignored or or not brought into make it authentic. And you know i mean it. It does feel like the the entirety of the book. Kind of exists on this insulting title itself could much spells it out right there. Yeah which which is meant as a as an irony but it's but it's still it's still struggles to overcome that and that's very tough when you're dealing with a movie that's about a group of people that maybe not made by the same by the. I mean the howards. They grew up in california rance. Howard was you know. He was a stuntman back in the day. So it's not. Like ron howard grew up in the hills of west virginia or anything. Yeah exactly paddle faster. I hear banjos thing. Isn't the book talking about you. Haven't read the book but from my money. The book is always better than the movie. I can't think of a single example because so much is left to out so much nuance and i just just so much. The background i particularly found that to be true with any steven king book that was turned into a movie. I've always approached it as a book is a book and a movie a movie and they're very very different. A lot of people think they're very similar type things but it's like no. There's much more intimacy in a book. You take longer you can get into the characters book. That's five hundred pages long. Most screenplays are a hundred pages. Or so you know. And it's a very different medium so it's easy to say the books better than the movie but it's more or less your adapting something into you know it'd be like taking a painting and adapting it into a symphony. I mean that's the kind of very different good point. Yeah i see exactly what you're saying because you're compressing whole lot of material a whole lot of information essentially you on the book versus movie i would say jaws is one of the few books that i thought was improved into a movie But a lot of it's because of the character development that would have seen weird and awkward in the movie itself so the book. Great book but Same thing with psycho. It's the books are really good book but the movie kind of went somewhere different and worked. You would mean a better movie than if you've made an authentic adaptation of the book. We're going to need a bigger boat. Bigger book cow. Well done kevin car that guys at the movies. Fat guys at the movies dot com again. You can hear his weekly syndicated program writing around thirteen ten.

Laugh at a joke Our aunt sadness and send a message via social media to a cousin that Might be in another country. We drive grandma's house. Well maybe maybe not this year for meal and just thirty minutes journey. That would have taken half day or more just a century earlier. In addition we still possess the rights and liberties yes increasingly under fire. I will concede that point that are as natural to most americans as breathing some of those liberties admittedly under attack. But when in our history was this not the case. You gotta remember america. The representative republic. I just jain norma's idea. And well a little bit noisy. And messy like our ancestors we must defend and fight for those rights otherwise they will vanish but on thanksgiving. We should pause not only to remember but to appreciate and treasure them. Finally we can use a thanksgiving day as a time to celebrate the lives that we enjoy a time to draw our families and friends while i would say close but from safe social distance and to remember how gratitude is so powerful to our overall health.

As they say, YouTube dot com slash fantasy football is if you want to watch a grown man, cry today's the day, Jason before the show. I see. I thought maybe like a one day tilt, Mike, I I was looking at him yesterday. Sure. He like over the course of the day. He slowly became more and more sad with the fact that he was inevitably facing defeat for a in our league record in. I thought this was a one day thing. Now we got up and we went to the gym this morning and any walked in, and I said, hey, are you doing okay? And while he wasn't doing okay. And so this is more of a permanent situation and then we get the, we get in here and you know, we're about to start the show and he says, he says, Kerry me, boys carry me and I heard bury me. So I don't Jason. Status check status strike is this still verifying my still verified? They do not take that away for losses. My co-owner Brooks, I've heard of him correctly said before the show, he said, hey, Jason, the people need you, and that's right. They do. There are plenty of people out there right now with great teams. I mean, we know I know someone who's been posting in the listener league from a differently screen shots were they are the highest point score in their league and their own three. All that stuff happens. If you are in a rut, don't give up, you can win. And so here's what here's my promise to the Falkland I might. I might go in four. But I am winning the championship this season. This, this is my promise. I'm calling my shot right now. I will win the championship Brooks and I will win the championship and Arlene record this season. And I am currently owned three and might even go on for is just going to happen seems a lot more Casey at the bat than Babe. Ruth right now. Well, we're gonna find out. That's the already got three strikes though. Yeah. What if that's your face scans? The reality. See, we've done this. We've done this show long enough. We see every story when titled time comes, we get piles of emails and tweets and YouTube comments from the o. three. Oh four, zero five. Oh yeah. And it happens every year every single year. And one of the things that happens is the other teams in your league that are struggling. They freak out. We had happened this week in her dynasty. It's they throw their hands up and go, I guess I suck. So I'm going to trade my good players away and guess what? You just lost competition. Yeah. You have less teams to compete with. You got a free win. Come week eight or nine or ten or whenever you're matched up against them. And here's the other pro tip. If you want a lot of times, people are always saying, how do I get trades to happen in my league? I, you know, I'm not. The best trait gimme a trade tip. Best trade tip imaginable. And you've said this before Andy go to the teams in your league that are also in three look at who has a losing record. It is so much easier to get a trade done with someone who is Owen three one and two. Then it is someone's three and they go, well, I don't. I don't really want to break it up, you know, look for the good performing players of the guys. You want on bad teams and make something work there. And this show is the waiver show. We also do stash in trash on the show of our quarterback streamers. We'll get you right for week four coming up and let you know kind of who you can drop, who you can let go now. Not everybody's in Jason's boat, right? Mike, no, I'm not. I'm good. Yeah, so doing all right. We're gonna help you out to hopefully you're doing well. Now foot claimed giveaway dot com. You can go over there. Completely free enter to win a signed, Corey Davis jersey and a championship belt. That's this month's giveaway. Clean giveaway dot com. And let's talk about Monday night football in lieu of a quick question today because it wasn't exciting game. It was an up and down ride for fits magic, tragic pick. Fifth Fiqh fits pick six. Oh, you heard Pittsburgh. Yeah, there was a sign of welcome to fits Bergh. Yeah. I mean, I it's interesting because the debate that everyone wants to have in mind you another four hundred yard game for Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he had the three picks took some sacks. He had a bad QBR fantasy day. I mean, you know, it wasn't what you hope that wasn't a top five performance obviously started in a six foot hole, but when you throw for four hundred yards and three touchdowns, you salvaged your fantasy day. You were just fine with him as your starter on the season. Second in the league in total touchdowns thrown. I in twenty plus yard completions. He has eighteen of those number one. Eight hundred twenty air yards that second most five seventy six in the NFL and he is still the number two in passer rating. I do not think that the buccaneers bench Ryan Fitzpatrick I think they'll play him. What do you guys think? Hundred percent? It's I. I lean that way as well. Brooks Brooks just paste it in the picture. I don't know if you saw the his reaction, Ryan Fitzpatrick reaction to one of his completions where he went wide. I'd like an absolute maniac animal. It was all it's incredible. But it was funny watching that game because the there was a quote that had come up before the game. That said, I don't remember if it was the GM co shoot who was saying about about rifles past, but saying, as long as Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't do something incredibly stupid. He will be the starter, and then we saw three quarters of absolute stupid happened for Ryan Fitzpatrick. He not three, I get up. We saw a half of it. And he made the decision difficult because he came back nearly one the game. I'm with you guys. I believe that Ryan Fitzpatrick stays the starter for week four. Ronald Jones was a healthy scratch again. This is not good, but Payton barber is atrocious. That's why it's so bad you have. I mean, Payton Barbara has been not. I mean, we told you last week, don't start him. I mean, you cannot start him, but afer thirty three. They have no running game. Is this true that Ryan Fitzpatrick is the first quarterback in in history to have four hundred plus yards in three consecutive games into start. The season just starts to season. So Peyton barber is trashed to me if we're if we're preemptive stash attract, you agree or is he a stash? Because he's the starting running back. You normally make. I must've Jordan Wilkins and Jamaal Williams, and there's a lot of guys that are kind of like you have on your bench. I am and you never wanna play him. I'm still stashing him. Him because he is the starting running back for an NFL offense. He actually got Howard off a high powered offense. He got a couple of carries, you know, he had a chance inside the five and he got down to like the two almost scored a touchdown. So it's there. And if you look at these first three games, they've been shootouts just unbelievable. And that's kind of, you know, look at the teams that they're playing the saints in the Steelers, these high output games where it's hard to run the ball from game script standpoint. So I'm not throwing him away yet. But yeah, Ronald Jones is. I mean, what do you do show Sean Wilson hill drafted free acids. I, yeah, right now, I mean you you expect Jones will make it in their eventually, but you don't know. And I, I watched Peyton Barbara, take a handoff yesterday, and then he was trying to get the edge. I baked a full ham in the time that he got to the outside, so they gotta fix something on the running game that's hurting the James. Connor was having an atrocious game on the ground until the final drive until the bucks knew they were gonna run the ball, and he was all about it off at twenty seven yarder and turned. I think he was at that point something like Culas it's like eleven for for nothing. Yeah. He was running about one and a half, and he ended up fifteen per sixty. One caught five passes. So he was okay for you. Big time games from dance, McDonnell four in a touchdown. If you listen, did you hear his interview after the game? No. They said, when you saw Chris Conte, which by the way Chris Conte the strong quote safety. He had been truck stick by Charles clay couple of years ago vans. Mcdonagh they go. Okay. What were you thinking there? He goes just crush them because I just wanted to crush him just destroy him just just absolutely pulverize him. Just make him feel it, and that was his answer. It's just such a contrast to the claim can't hit the quarterback, and then you're, he basically twisted his neck into a pretzel on the stiff arm. And that's legal. It's comedic to me, but big been. I mean, Big Ben has more fantasy points the last two weeks and Pam Mahomes does. So for all Bama homes, hype do not lose sight of what Big Ben is doing for fantasy right now. Correct. And juice misuse during the slot is like a Chicote nine for one sixteen didn't score, but had eleven targets and is a monster. This is what I was talking about in the off season because it's not three games. It's the second half of last year. It's since Ryan. Shazier has been gone been rob. Burgers. The number one quarterback in fantasy football. He's been unbelievable. And now you add juju whose unbelievable next to Antonio Brown you take away left. Bell is obviously a better runner than James. Connor James, Garner's been Admiral, but he's no love bell. And you just you keep slinging that rock Big Ben? Yeah. I was just on Twitter and someone said that we need more j. Grizz on the show. He hasn't been around in a little while. Sorry, I want to highlight the fact that he he is a cardboard bear. So maybe brings a little, maybe you think you bring it a little more than he really does. I'm not sure other fantasy takeaways from his game to meet Chris Godwin was a takeaway. See. He dropped a couple passes pass. I think that a if you want him to be a reliable guy, he's gotta make those catches. But he also made a couple of catches that were pretty special and he had ten targets. I think he's a, he's a guy you gotta pick up. Oh, no. I was going to say on one is he is just a must start at this point until Ryan Fitzpatrick believes the lineup for all for all of the gas nece that you just showed. He's on our way for wire in our league of record. I mean, he's, he's not a player that I, you know, he's in that category where people were looking at him, like, you know. Golladay stales fringe star player. And no, that's the right question. Is he a wide receiver to in your mind right now? I don't know. I don't know if he is or not. What do you, what do you think? Yeah, I I'm not going away while Ryan Fitzpatrick is quarterback. I'm not going away from from Godwin maybe you know, in a in a bad match up then. Sure. I'll make sure I'm not just blindly starting someone, but Godwin is a player that coming out last year was highly rated. That was one of Matt Harman's favourite guys, a great contested, catch type of player. We've seen that so far and then it fell. He's looked great. And Mike Evans is going to get the number one coverage. So I think Godwin is is is a worthy start most weeks? How does Mike Evans feel right now the quarterback situation he wants Brian Fitzpatrick that's gotta be so conflicting that you're, you're perceived franchise guy is scheduled to come. Back from his suspension. But Ryan, Mike Evans hasn't had numbers like this in years. It's confusing for all of them because you, you know, you're in a situation where looked Sean Jackson didn't do anything last year Ryan. He's having success this year. I want to talk about one more piece of the puzzle, Jason and I were debating at this morning. Oji Howard. His name needs to come up last year as a rookie snap count percentage between Howard and break was fifty five and fifty three. This year, it's sixty five to thirty right now for our in Howard's favor. They're going that five wide action and Howard such an athletic freak last night. He had a very good game. He dropped a couple of passes and still put up six, four seventy two hours. Jason was saying, he's, he's a top six tied in. That's what I believe Howard is right now. I mean it tops. Six. When you say top six, you don't have to be great. There's, you know, I'm not saying top three. You have to be great to be in that elite to be tough, but then it just falls off. I mean, you've got a guy in OJ Howard who was a generational talent coming out of the draft. Right? I mean a freak, you just go look at a spark scores, and he, you know, set in the new standard. He was like von Miller when it comes to athletics schism, and now so far on the season, he hasn't had a game with fewer than fifty yards from the tight end position. I mean, you just need to stay with OJ Howard right now. You is Kurt high interceptions last night. It's got us all. I'm sure because he had, I think I'd brought up. He'd never had more than three. He was a three catch guile last year. Yeah. And the thing is you'll have this isn't saying that every week OJ Howard is going to be great, but. Every single week every tight end outside of the top, three can just garbage, but they're very few guys that can do what OJ Howard can do. And like you said he dropped a couple. Yeah. And I, I don't. I don't read too much in the snap percentage in in respect to the fact Howard zinn amazing blocker, but I, I was definitely impressed with him and he's a much better talent than Cameron break. You're still going to have the painful realities. Like where break caught a touchdown last night and Mike, do you last point before we get into the news? Do you fear the return of Winston for Howard versus Bray because of the rapport that Winston had with break last year, I does that go into your consideration or do you feel like this is just a level up for Howard is I'm going to go with the level up for Howard, but it certainly it should be in the back of your mind. Okay. Let's move onto the news. Oh. Super news e. Yes, don. What on earth I'm leaving this this magical ESPN's Adam Schefter report. The MRI has convert Jimmy garoppolo's initial diagnosis of torn left ACL. Similar call? Axel, f it. Axel Foley in here immediately. If you could see Brooks face, it's a gas. So a couple of days ago we lost our whole soundboard. I. Lost it all Samborn and Brooks rebuilt it, and he hadn't played nuisance since then. That is maybe my bit. Yeah, cardinals coach, Steve Wilks announced Monday. Now rookie. Josh Rosen will start a quarterback going forward. Oh, man, dalvin cook. Jay today. Unserved is weak force status. Jaguars coach, Doug Marrone said running backs. Leonard fournette NTT Yeldan will be day to day this week speaking, Monday, titans coach, Mike variable said there are still throw with Marcus mariota can't make, I guess what alshon Jeffery still hasn't been cleared for contact. The best new Saddam. We've never had a better news segment. There's one thing I it's like putting in the wrong drop is one thing putting in a drop. None of us have ever heard is another thing too. I don't know what it is Brooks. Do you want to? You're welcome. I guess we want to speak up here that is titled news or somewhere in our drop. The. Hundred and fifty shows the surprise that cable all three of our ears. When we heard out of nowhere. Bears wide receiver recipe Miller's day to day with a dislocated left shoulder, sweet mercy that keep to leaves gonna need surgery.

Well, that's our news for today. Why? Why is the Christopher Michael party even in there? That's just that's just I've dictated for you.

I feel it's so funny because there's a point. I mean, we had a full crash lost all of our drops. It takes a long time to rebuild this thing and he's put in the effort and the time. And that's what we get. All right. Waiver wire, let's start at the wide receiver position I have. I have a guy that I'm I'm targeting this week on the waiver wire my favorite pickup, but we'll start with kind of the the one probably owned, but we're taking a peek at and that's John Brown. We have them down in sixty three percent on, but he went five for eighty six again on nine targets. He is a reliable flags play. Yes, pick him up, but the main pickup and I guess Chris Godwin if you're saying, you know, probably owned if he's available in our league of record, he's out there in yours. Yeah, I think there's just doubts when you have a two, three fringe situation. It's kind of like the, you know, the Rams or something sure feels like is the to look. There's a two, three in that is my personal favourite pickup this week, the guy that I would be going after is in that two three situation and that's Geronimo Alison. I think. Ronal Allison has shown that he is probably the two. I mean he could be the three, but when he's the three, he still going to be fine. He plays for Aaron Rodgers. And I mean so far on the season, she's been great. He hasn't had fewer than sixty yards in a single game. He's had two touchdowns in three games. What more do you want from a waiver wire pickup? This is a guy that I think you could start in just about any match up as well. So I, he's the guy I would be targeting if he interrail on what he's playing on over seventy percent of snaps, what and that's the key there. His targets have gone down in all three games, but he stayed for four targets. You hope he does something with them. He had two receptions seventy six yards and a touchdown. This last week I don't like chasing the low volume, but I don't think he is a guaranteed low volume either. I think he could have, you know, six, seven, eight receptions in a game. So I want to contrast them with a guy that's owned basically in the same percentage at the same percentage, which is about thirty three percent of leagues. My favorite target is actually Antonio Calloway wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns Baker Mayfield starting this week, it, it changes the offense dramatically. Yes. They also have the kind of Mike brought up before on the show when you have a backup and he was the backup until Gordon was released. They had a report in the preseason. If you remember the final preseason game, Calloway was punished and had to play every snap. And there was a lot of Baker and Calloway and he's an elite talent. He's an elite speed is the first round talent that ended up going later due to concerns about his character concerns. Yes. So Alison, thirty, three percent owned Calloway thirty, three percent. Own. I lean Callaway. I prefer that now. That's a very, I think I might be a hot take because you've got the the whole situation with air reverses Baker Mayfield, but Calloway being locked in as the primer. He's to me, he's the, I know he's the two outside of Landry, but he's the one on the outside, right? He's not. Landry is short yardage possession receiver. So Callaway is eighty nine percent of snaps last week, and it's going to be that way. The remainder of the year. He is the guy in Cleveland. So if you believe in Baker, I think you have to believe in Callaway if you had to choose Mike, which of those two would you take who that's that's a difficult choice. I. I lean. I leaned the Geronimo side, but just barely. I think that my love for Antonio Calloway's professed several times on this show. All right. Honestly, this is I feel like this is a really solid week for wide receivers on the waiver. It's a wide receiver week run a lot of guys. I want at wide receiver and there are crickets at running back right now, which is why as a as a fresh reminder, we tell you to draft so many running backs and have more running backs and wide receivers, leaving the draft because it's hard on the waivers with running backs on a lot of weeks. Yeah, but clearly not that hard to pick up a contributing white yet because these guys are all under fifty percent on our bring up two guys that we had fantasy film studies done this week by the writing staff here at the fancy footballers. You can read the full film study articles on the fancy footballers dot com. Tyler Boyd only seventeen percent on. And then Calvin rarely, both of them at monster monster weeks. The interesting thing when you look at the film, a guy like Tyler Boyd now aged green. I know he missed some time in this game, but the snap percentage retired was up at ninety. One. One percent in this game that was pretty significantly higher than even the week before when we were really impressed with him, he has two straight weeks with six plus catches last week, one hundred thirty two yards and a touchdown scored in two weeks. And then you have Ridley who he's been at that sixty seven percent snap count percentage, but he had the monster week. Six catches three touchdowns. I think the most fab in waiver priorities are going to be spent on Calvin Ridley. They're going to chase that Mondo gains or do you think it's worthwhile? I mean, what's the gimme a fab amount that you'd spend on Ridley because do you wanna really blow? No, a high percentage of your budget on a guy that look three touchdowns I don't care who you are. You're not going to repeat that all year long. I'm not going to. I'm not going to go out and break the Bank for a guy who's beat sixty six percent of the snaps, he's that's right around what he's averaging. Perhaps that goes up. I just don't. I don't foresee doing that even with the Hughes performance. I would spend, you know, eight percent or whatever on Calvary. I'd like to add him. But Tyler Boyd is my number one waiver wire wide receiver of the week. Yes, he's he is heavily involved. AJ green is banged up. Andy, Dalton, we're gonna talk about him, of course in the show, but Andy, Dalton and the Bengals have a fantastic run coming up with their matchups. Here's just the next three, the Atlanta, Falcons who were absolutely decimated. Yeah, on the defensive side of the ball, Miami who they've, they didn't open. Okay. But they can be beat and they're at home at home and then Pittsburgh the next week. I mean the Bengals and then there's there are even more juicy matchups right after that Tampa Bay is involved. That's I want in on the Bangladesh offense. I don't. I don't blame you for that. I think the AJ green, I was going to bring up the fact that the ninety percents snap countless last week because I green missed field. But week one eighty three percent week too. So I mean, he's an eighty percent guy. He is the two and he has like we were talking about for OJ. However, I think that Boyd has leveled up. He catching up to the game, he looks great. I would be happy to put him number one. If if you wanted to take the shy AJ green missing this week now we didn't talk about when we were discussing Calloway and. Geronimo we didn't say what percentage fab we would spend on those guys that we're going after. It's pretty simple for me and tell me if you guys disagree this is I've shared this before, but with wide receivers. I'm I'm pretty much my max is five, five percent of my budget and you. So if one hundred the scraps? Yeah, I'll take the scraps of all put five dollars out there. If there's ever a guy like I've just, you know, I completely believe something's happening of a full injury ahead of them. Then I would change that up if I think I can get someone who's going to be great the rest of the year. But because every single week you could pick a guy up waivers stardom in your flex stardom as a wide receiver and you'll be fine. I don't wanna blow priority and I don't wanna blow a lot of money. I'll just simply put five dollars or less bids, and I'll order the players in the order. I like them versus, yeah, I put. I don't disagree with that principle. I think this week specifically with the eighty nine percent snap. Apps and my confidence and Baker and the Callaway connection. I probably put Calloway in Boyd in a separate category of guys that I probably spin. I don't know eight to ten dollars a fab on, and then the rest I put in that in that pile. But I, I get it. I mean, you, you have the opportunity. There's a narrative for all these guys to succeed. I'm we're gonna look, look at Kristen Kerr, seven for ninety last week on the atrocious cardinals offense. Larry FitzGerald has not been involved. He'll come up, I'm sure and stash your trash today. And then Kristen Kirk has the report that we've seen with Josh Rosen who was named the starter. It's the same thing. Maybe you heard about Josh Rosen in our new segment. The car knows right. Chris, Kirk is interesting to me the same. I for some of the same reasons why Calloway was so interesting at the beginning of the year, the backup quarterback playing with the backup wide receiver. Christian Kirk had to earn his time and maybe we're chasing a narrative here, but he keyed looks great. He was productive this past week, and now we get Josh Rosen. So I think Christian Kirk, if you're going with Jason's method, Chris Kirk should absolutely be in that list of guys that you'll just put a little bit and and hope white or see real. You'll be low on my list who he will not be hi. I'm not going to chase because I think that the ceiling is very low. Even if the reports there maybe you're full point PR and and he's his four could be high, but you're still got Larry is the number one. The offense is still, here's some more at best on to drop some some knowledge on you hear reception percentage in. In the twenty eight thousand season. So this is targets to receptions. By far the number one is Michael Thomas. Oh, it's sky at them. Ab- he has cut thirty eight or forty targets. That's targets. That's not now obviously drew Brees I mean, puts it on, but he's great number two in the NFL Ryan green eighty six percent targets number three to Sean Jackson number four. Emmanuel Sanders and know who's tied for number five Christian Kirk. He while for fifteen targets got them sticky hands. I loved Christian Kirk coming out at a college and draft season. It went Cortlandt Sutton, Christian Kirk on my own personal pre-draft rankings. But I do think for fantasy this season. I just think his ceiling is capped, but PR leagues. I like him a hold on. Yes. For what it's worth the worst three in the league right now on on receptions to targets, Dante Moncrieff forty-one percent. Yeah, Kelvin Benjamin that makes sense. Forty percent accent dead last, believe it or not court and Sutton Sutton. Sutton, thirty five percent. I it's downfield targets. I mean, all you know, and one of those was actually a reception for a touchdown. Fair fair. What about the Jordan? Jordan at one did as wearing George? Yes. Jordy Nelson who came back to life and we three had a sensational performance. I feel like George and his quads would not meet in a good place. I think that would be like that that greeting card that you've seen a lot with the guy with the really tight jeans you've seen that little clip. I don't recommend googling it. You're on island over there, man. I mean, you can look it up. You've seen it before. What am I looking up? I encourage this. Yeah, I think that might be all you need. Jordy will definitely be picked up wherever he has dropped. I image. I guess some bud cheeks. Yeah. All right. Yeah, that's a, that's a pretty famous greencard stay safe. Say save out there. Sorry, Jason. You were talking about George t Nelson, George t Nelson will certainly be picked up and his should be picked up. I don't want to play the game that I think is going to happen with Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson. I don't want. I expect that it's going to be hard to predict hard to get right. And as many times as you start a good player, you're going to start someone that causes a loss. However, there is the chance here that Jordy takes over and becomes the Michael Crabtree. He looked great. We had mentioned how his game speed from last year was not surprisingly, was not below average. He was still well above average. He was as fast as he ever was. So it didn't appear from next gen stats. He had lost a step and clearly this last week he hadn't. So if you wanna take the shot to see if maybe he becomes consistent, I'm fine with it. I don't believe he will become consistent, so I will be letting other people spend their money on Jordan, but I definitely could hap- I won't one more deeper league name at the wide receiver position because some of these guys look Mike Williams zone and a lot of leaks. That's that's somebody who can't target. You can't go after. Do you have any interest in? I mean, I got one, what's the deeper new? Albert Wilson is one of those guys. That's a home run shot a weekly look. You know, he doesn't get an volume to be someone that should be rostered weekend and week out. But if you're dealing with injuries, other guys get picked up and you're like, I want that glory play. Albert Wilson has been used in so many different ways. He thrown touchdown. He's rushed to touchdown. He's caught a touchdown though. You know, you're always a seventy yard touchdown away. From an album Wilson plan. So I, I would. I would be in deep league. You wanna pick up the number eighteen wide right now pro, boom in and important. Spur high five during during touchdown runs. He's at the top of the chart. Yeah, him and tyreek. You got anybody. Might you gotta deeply guy? You could bring up Ryan grant only four percent owned and like now? Yeah, I was gonna. It's mine. Albert Wilson, Ryan grants were were the guys to talk about if you're, you know, deeper league, but I'm not super interested in Ryan Grim. I'm not either. How about. I mean, I, I don't know. Maybe he's no, he's not to own, but Taylor. Gabriel is another name where the volume want more of that Trubisky a passing offense. No, but I, I mean, look, if we're looking really, really deep and trying to find someone that is completely unknown. His target counts have been good, and he has the speed to break sums enough our Wilson category because they do run them on interactions and things like that. The when I was looking up stats this morning on Ryan Fitzpatrick in the touchdown totals, you know, Mahomes has thrown a touchdown. Every seven point something passes for Bisky is one every forty. A seems his Trump. I running back waiver wire. Let's talk about, you know, it's it's a weird week. It really is especially at the running back position because you're looking at a bunch of players that. These guys are probably owned, blah pal, the neck litter, Alfred Morris Erin Jones, they probably aren't available in your league. I mean, that's the facts. But if they are, those are names that you should look at including TJ Yeldan who was a little banged up. But Leonard fournette has always one moment from the bench. But the main pickups this week you're looking at voice selling looking at that. I mean, they're just we cannot find significant value at the running back position this week. And you know, I'd be targeting Aaron Jones. If for some reason he's available because I think he'll become something in a couple of weeks. But guys, this is a thin here had world. Here's what's available on the waivers. If you're in a half point or full point p p r league, you grab the guys that receive the third down, backs, the scap Bax that can go into your lineup and get you hopefully ten points on the back of six receptions. Those guys would be like a time Montgomery, a name, Heinz. Darren sproles if he is healthy, those are your best bets this week. If you're like, cramp Christian McCaffrey is on by op dealing with an injury to my other running back and I have to find someone to start. I have to have someone this week on waivers, then you're looking at a pass catching back and hopefully you can get enough points out of him. Do you go after Kris ivory case Leshan McCoy MRs because he was heavily involved. Twenty carries obviously the game scrip was in his favor, but six percent owned. I mean, you can sign Chris ivory if you want him. Yeah, I, I definitely do. I expect shaded to be back, but if he's out, you've got a starting running back. So Chris ivory would you know, look, if if if you're in that position I just described, I would much rather go after Kris ivory. I because nine Hines time Montgomery Darren sproles when you're waivers are done running those three very. Well, might still be sitting there too high. I mean, this today show said, highlight. I mean, we, there's ten to fifteen wide receiver names. There's there's one. There's one not own name in January sale out. I mean that that should highlight why we prioritize. It's not just which why is he still unknown? Nobody was buckling come home and not even know. He just he's tried so hard to into to have a healthy candidates in any can't do it. Yeah, that's true. I mean, he signed Danny Woodhead last year. I mean, divorce Allen, it's he's the new depth chart assassin. He doesn't get grays volume, but he is involved in only two ways and they're the two most valuable ways for running back to be involved the goal line and the pass catching. So he has a picture of James whiten his mere korver's MIR, that is the comp. That's that's fair. He's reliable enough for that team. All right. Let's talk tied in. Who are you targeting? Because look, I, if you. Can find a way to get David and joke. I think it's very interesting Baker Mayfield Yep. But he is owned in sixty eight percent of leagues. There's a lot of hype before the season, and he hasn't been dropped by a lot of people. Although it could happen this week, he'd be a drop it like it's hot candidate, make sure you look at your waiver wire after they run tomorrow because he could be sitting there. People might have tired of him and he was only two for thirty six last week. So he's somebody to pay attention to. And then Tyler I for six or seventy four last week, keep your eyes on them. It's a thin dangerous world for tight ends. Yup, absolutely. The big name in the at the tight end position to even really talk about you might not even want to pick him up, but that's Dallas Godart who had a monster game seven for seventy three with the score on seven targets. So he was absolutely perfect. But the first two games, he barely even saw the field. I'll be. Shocked if he has more than two receptions this week. That's that's my fear. I mean, absolutely. You want him on your bench to see, yes if Al Sean is out and and winces obviously back, I would even take shot over a lot of other people to start em week one. He was a drop away from touchdown reception so he could have had to at a three weeks being a valuable fantasy tightening top, twelve Vance McDonald or Dallas gutter. That's I think I would rather have Vance. If Vance showed he's healthy. We've always been big fans. I'm doing the vans dance all the time. But yeah, it's that's a tough call because Vance McDonald played. I'm looking at pro football reference. They show them planet about forty, eight percent of snaps. I know he had the huge play. I would love it if they can go forward with Vance McDonald, but it's it's a two tight end thing for both of these guys for both Dallas Qatar invents McDonald, here's a drop it like it's hot candidate that I would be on. The lookout for on waivers is Jack Doyle because Jack Doyle is injured did very little week to people are going to have to just move on and say, I can't trust them drop him, but Eric Brown, got the targets and he just didn't get it done. If you look at a snap percentages between those two guys, I think they could win. Doyle gets back. They oil was dropped. I would take him over all of these titans that we've been talking about easily been Watson, five or seventy. One last week will diz dizzily crashing, big Montana, crashing back to earth with one for four. The moose was nearly goose big Montana's. Are you talking about the sandwich? Yes, I am. They are d- list now he's this right. You told me that you almost you almost destroyed your diet and your bowels by by doing kind of a. Oppressing like fast food run. Last held off. I did. I held off and I said, I'm not gonna. I'm not going to. I'm here for the people. I'm going to win the championship this year will hope he did like Disney just did a free sets of push ups right after that? No, I went to bed early like. That was the only way to stop myself through is just you gotta be unconscious. Yeah, I got a, I got into today. All right. We're going to get into our quarterback streamers, but I wanna know some names at the defensive position. Oh, you if they're they're, I mean, they're very owned, but if somehow the Los Angeles chargers were dropped because someone did not want to play them against the Los Angeles Rams they get to play CJ Beathard and the San Francisco forty Niners. That'd be the top pickup of the wedding. I think Seattle is a tie to because sure whatever Josh Rosen can do. He can undo with a bad pictures. There's some good options as we agree that Seattle is worth a look. It isn't Arizona. So maybe that's a, I'm I'm John hundred percent fine with the Seahawks. I think the Seahawks are going to have a great game, but I would also throw out the Zona cardinals as well in this game similar to last week. I said, the cardinals and the. Bears both defenses in Arizona are going to be fine, and they both were. Amazon has actually been fine on the defensive side of the ball for fantasy purposes. Mitchell Trubisky wasn't that great and and we know Russell Wilson gives up sacks. So at home, they'll get enough sacks. I think you could karnal deep has been disadvantaged because the time of his action, right? Because they have their offense has been so bad. And obviously they had the game against the Rams which every defense looks bad against the Rams right now. Did you did you see that stat but the third and out? Yeah. Like in the in the in the NFL the top teams in terms of like lowest percentage of three nouns are at like twenty two percent twenty three percent twenty four percent so that that means they only go three and out. Like at the time, the Rams are at six percent. Yeah, tear break. Yes. We trade for Sean McVay out here in, I would love to do that. That'd be fantastic. What the last defense you've got to throw out. Of course, despite Buffalo's big week, the Green Bay Packers at home against the Buffalo Bills. I'm very confident going in on that. The buffalo, I heard the the number we talked about the defense is what won the game for buffalo last week because the bills average starting position was the opponents forty yard line. Wow, that's that's how you lose. Football gets a forty yard field, so I would not. I'm not shying away from playing the Green Bay Packers against the bills. I agree with you on that. The Packers will score and they will put more on the shoulder, Josh Allen more mistakes. We're going to be possible there. It's in limbo. That's going to be intimidating, agree completely. I want to fly through some names real quick before we get into full stream head. I just want to know if you think you can drop these guys. Are they gonna ask? Are they trash? Okay. Amari Cooper trait. Yeah, I'm not dropping them, but I'm definitely trading. I'm not dropping either. Derrick Henry. He's just he's getting too much volume St. to drop. Yeah. You have to ask him Corey Dave's drop. I'd be, oh, I'd be willing to drop him. I'd be willing to all of these guys if you can package trade them do so, but Mari, I am a, I am a major Stafford, Corey Davis. He hasn't had Marcus mariota. Healthy. Yeah, and he still doesn't, but we want he did and he was very productive, high target count. So I would stash Corey Davis. I would trade Corey Davis to you. Well, I thought you said you were going to drop them Jason. No, I'm saying I'm signing off the waiver wire. I'm willing Jamal Williams. Oh, no, you've got a stache. Jamal Williams is a tragedy. You drop them to the waivers. Yes, out of spite Corey David. He's either in a three year running back timeshare or he loses, right? It's at he's on the bench. Looking at a two person timeshare Jones. In Montgomery, it is not a good situation for tomorrow Williams, but we just went through the runningback waivers. I'm willing to drop wide receivers to the waivers because I know I can always take wide receiver from the waiver, but there's just no running rather Rosser Jordan Wilkins or demo Williams. Tema Williams. I think to my Williams, I don't really want any part of the colts running game peer Garson. I wanna say drop, but CJ Beathard coming in. That's a Baxter situa- drop. Okay, that's right off the bridge veto when bathroom was in the was in the offense was just operated. You heard fifteen names that I prefer in the waiver wire segment today over peer Goldstone this not to mention you just brought up starting defenses against bathroom. I don't think this is an opportunity for Sean to break out to recall it. You can drop 'em Duke Johnson, you can Duke Johnson. I would hold onto Johnson just to see what happens with Baker same with Cohen. These are the situation is just what I describe. It's just impossible to drop a running back. All right. You drop a running back that is that has a snap percentage probably making a mistake. All right. Let's go quick here. Jamison Crowder Trump. He's on by this week to someone reason to drop Robbie Anderson draw up Larry FitzGerald. Yes, Larry FitzGerald. He's he's a whole. He's holding Rosen for you can't drop. You cannot drop that big of a name. You have to trade. You have to pack it just, I mean, let's see what Rosen does. Yes. Yeah. You've got one week of row if he has a good game at home this week, if Larry could sell it that it's Rosen and trade 'em package stratum. Yeah, you know, pain barber hold. Hold reside, penny Baxter. Yeah, you can drop them that. Now when you say back through, you mean punt him off a bread. Just making sure this is the biggest one, Chris, HOGAN. That one's really tough. Josh Gordon play this week. Julian atom come back next week. Yeah, I'm going to hold I I'm still going to hold. I am, but I think he's a trap. I think he meant cut him seventy seven or seventy three weeks. It's it's I, it's hard to disagree with you, but look at the the entire patriots offense. They have been absolute garbage. We're gonna lay in a c. so e, okay, Josh Gordon's coming Julian Edelman. Does that actually help Chris HOGAN in the long run, get more opportunities to score. That's why I'm just hesitant to drop him. I do not blame anyone who does it. Full stream ahead. All right. Streaming quarterback candidates for week, four or picking out guys that are most likely available in your league that we think you can roll out there if you need a quarterback streamer. So let's start with Mike. Mike, you got up earlier. I got Andy, Dalton, listen to this complete run of matchups upcoming for the red rifle Atlanta, Miami Pittsburgh, Kansas City. Tampa Bay debt is some glorious matchups when it comes to fantasy football and fantasy quarterbacks. He's had multi touchdowns in every single game this year. And what's different to me for Andy, Dalton, who was he was bad Andy last year. I mean, he was partially bad. Andy, this past weekend, four interceptions, but still came through the decent fantasy game. He has to legitimate wide receiver options, which she has not. For a while. It's been AJ green and Brandon. The fell with the emergence of Tyler Boyd Tyler. I for being healthy. Also changes things drastically. He's getting things. He's getting it done this year for fantasy football. So I like him. He's my number one quarterback pick up this week because of those upcoming match ups. He, you may have Andy Dalton in your lineup for the next month and a half. I'm gonna go with Baker Mayfield mania. Mania that was going to say, I'm not buying long-term high with Baker, but I think this massive him, this may this matchup with Oakland. This week is a good one. Oakland just gave up three hundred yards and three touchdowns to Ryan tannehill who was Tino three hundred because the tap passes. They can't and look tannehill was the streamer last week. I'm gonna. I'm gonna ride that matchup and out to eighty nine Beck, you rounded up. I did. I expect at least one big play from in Tonio Calloway it's going to help Baker and I think that there's going to be opportunity here. So I think Baker Mayfield I think you can buy the hype for a week. I like the Manta. My stream of the week is a guy that Monday night football, Monday night football. It's going to be a barn burner in primetime. Why? Because as the Kansas City Chiefs. And obviously you can't stream Pat Mahomes, but you want a quarterback in that game. Well, if if he's on your waiver, why would recommend I'd recommend giving solid of really good analysis, Mike, no case keenum a guy that I have always professed my belief in him being a good quarterback, had a rough week this last week, but we all knew, I mean, is going on the road to Baltimore. This is a matchup in primetime at home where. The city is going to put up points because that's all they do and case keenum is going to have to come back through the air. He's got the weapons to do it. Listen to this three games where three games into the season, Kansas City has given up one thousand one hundred and twenty seven passing your through three games and eight touchdowns eight passing touchdown. So case keenum that's an average of three hundred seventy five yards a game and two point six touchdowns. So if case keenum comes out and throws to fifty and two, you're going to be pretty happy scoop and him up off the waiver wire. But the ceiling is very, very high. I think that the only mile only worry about that game is if. 'cause the strategy to be Kansas City is to get the ball out of their offense, his hands truth. So if there if Denver gets a defensive score, if they get a an early lead, if there's something that happens, if I'm Denver, I am running the football and trying to zap that clock with time and possession. That's the only thing I'll say that would be the trap for keenum. I still think the more likely scenario right now is that Pam homes and Kansas City finds a way to score, but that would be the the small little trap there. If there's a defense that can slow Kansas City down, there's only three of them that come to mind and Denver is one of them, so you're absolutely right. That could be a trap. And I think if they do get out to a lead and start running the ball, I think Pat Mahomes going to be able to come down and still score and Hoskins keenum to have to throw at home when keenum's at home. Yeah, it's a good matchup. I'm looking forward to both the Thursday night Monday night games. This week is is a fantasy fan. I mean, you get to watch the Rams on Thursday night football. Great matchup against the Vikings, and then you get Monday night. Pam homes in the in the prime time games, a fun them in a divisional match up there. So I'm really excited about that. I think that's it. Boys. I think we're moving into moving into the waivers put in your waiver bits. I mean, it's time to go. Anything else you guys want to talk about? I wish we had more news and notes to discuss, oh news and notes. We have another pot. See, I do have a little. I have a little bit of news. Yeah, Greg, Olsen. He's a head of the current ahead of schedule. He thinks it's going to be back soon. Greg Olsen. You don't buy it with the tied-in landscape. You don't take a shot. Yeah, it takes throw them on your eye are. Oh, yeah. If you have an IRA would have been in there. Yeah. If I have annoy are he would have already been in there. I'm just saying, would you hold him on your bench for a couple of weeks. I would be willing and I, I've been the one that's spoken against the reentry and Greg Olsen. I pump the brakes on them both on the season and week one. And if he's out there, the tight end landscape is so bad. He is better. I mean, what are you going to do? Pick up? We'll dizzily or have a shot at a, you know, top five tight end if OJ Howard were out there, I would pick up. Oh, Jay Howard right now over Greg Olsen play him now, and I think they'll be about same when they get back ways OG Howard or George kit arrested season OJ Howard. That's very close. I lean. I think stilling young gonna go Howard. I'm going Howard. Hey, if you're gonna play some daily this weekend, make sure you take draft dot com. Slash ballers they'll get you set up at phone and we will see you tomorrow. Goodbye.

You got the carnal read on you. Got The like. It's crazy with like how expensive these damn macbooks are and the camera ship for my end. Dude is I look like shit but I got a I've been like streaming video games My free time so like I got this. Had these people come over and like set up this fancy set up? I got a Mike.

But he's obsessed with first person shooter games and I'm like I've been always a true madden to k. guy like just through right But he's he's so into the shooter games that he's got me into him because he's like you know there's been times where we've been kicking it over the holidays.

Can you run a fucking quick post route on your way to the Doogie and then you can just walk and catch A? It's funny it's funny. You say that because we had like three football's laying around the CRIB. And so like I mean anywhere. Somebody went like yoga upstairs. Click a hit me like you know. Somebody's got the ball like immediately or somebody's upstairs like throwing the ball upstairs. I mean it's awesome for seven. That's we one of those kids in high school. That carried the the ball around with them around school. Not Around on school but at the House for sure. My Dad's like plenty photos of me like on the couch or some just would a football sleep just always added in my hands crazy. From what age do you think little like our say three four years old? I had a football stuff football and I used to love watching Sunday night football widow. That was like me. Dad Time and as funny he would make me run back and forth you know in front of the TV. He's he wants to get a little chuckle up. Is like drill me with like in the face? And you know it's funny guys you playing with your lowest. Oh Yeah so. He would our tone like Can like throw it and he would just drill that Till I catch it but until then like I always had a football with me. I still do like I have to football's in my car around. I got a FOOTBA Right behind me. That always have that I. That's what I mean. That has to play a factor in just like your familiarity in touch with the ball. Like after you just I mean I'm sure there's I don't know if there's anything that's written words like if you sleep with the ball you WanNa talk about ten thousand hours on the field. We're talking about ten thousand hours in bed like with the all that makes you better like it's proven like look at probably some guy that's trying to make money off. That was like look at Larry Fitzgerald. Slept with the ball six times a week right and in between his legs just in case he caught one there. But I'm sure that does translate right like do you do you remember. Is there a specific time even like for comics? There's always always asked like. When do you feel like you turn the switch on stage and you really like came into your own like as a receiver? Was there a time when you felt like? Oh Shit like not only. I'm obviously like the Mike conditioning parts. I'm in great shape but like was there a game or practice where you just you and the ball. Just fucking sinked up. And you're like dude. I think I'm about to take my game up a notch. You know what I'm saying but it is funny that you say that like with the touch fuel of a ball because if the defense is on the field for like a while. I'm sitting on the bench. I'll go in. I'll ask one of the guys who just passed a ball and I'll just walk around with it and just kind of hold it tossing my hands because yeah like just the feel of the ball like it. Kinda like boost your confidence in a sense but like you're you're more confidence seven back on the field like are you know if if I were out there in cuyler those Mu heater like I'm not caught off guard by on me like you're Kinda like wakes up your nerves. Your hands I duNNo. It does psychologically for you like I would say like in college my freshman year and I had like a crazy first. Four Games in my freshman year and you went off. Yeah it was just like you know that fourth game we played against Arkansas and it was my first. Sec game in like I was just catching everything. And I'm like Damn you and your head like be the best effort. This is easy like nobody told me he was going to be this easy but every game. I'll play didn't today since I've been in college dominated so like only the Lord only knows where I could go from here out. It was pretty early in college whereas like I'm taking off does does that. Camp. I mean you're just talking about catching heaters Josh Allen. You were there for that first of all you are so cool that I gotta be honest man. That was like a very you know I've been a fan of you since you're an MD and Although although I got buddies that that are like dude I saw booking kirk play at swallow high school man. That fucking Shit Dude. These are obviously old town. So like that guy fucking rules news from the same bucket city or they claim you and But but you know it's like right away you knew I was there to like make some gouves but like I got in your line to like you know which was so cool to the way it was. Set up where it was like. You know borough and Josh Kyle. And Mark and everybody. Kinda doing their do their footwork and and whatnot before a pass and then Jordan recalled a line and and you would run around and catch the ball and you were so I was like here obviously like try to catch a ball. I think like I'm trying to get in the league and you smirked and kind of knew that I was like full of Shit when you were like good man like it's like like get go get it. I think you said some cool fucking black ice like you were like fucking limit the volume dreams man and I was like fucking Christian Kirksey fucking man and and I just wanted to be your best friend and then and then we get out there. We're actually like running like I also thought it was going to be kind of like running through the motions a little bit and then I see you fucking just darted to the corner. Just make this smooth as catch and I was like I I guess I need to really try and then I don't know if you saw when they were all in on Josh Allen. Throw me a a heater into my Yet I'm still bleeding from from the abdominal muscles related. But do you. Do you get catches like like. Do you ever see like Cuyler Mid Game just you know. Chuck one where you're like. I'll do I need extra prep in your brain. When you see the ball comes up an office hands at a speed that you're may be like weren't anticipating. Yeah it's it's tough because you try not to think about that asa as a receiver the more like you say like it's third down and it's third down a three in he gives you a slant and you know collins coming to you you know he's GonNa throw it as hard as he can because on in between that small window between linebacker in the corner that's draped all of you we in our room we always say like. Don't let the game speed you up in so once you get all of your like Oh shit. The ball's coming towards me. It makes it a hundred times worse. You just Kinda gotta like played out. And then after the fact like yeah he just drove that. So it's just something that you honestly you trained for like I said we're you know that's why I go out there in California and then catch from all different types of quarterback because they all have their own way of releasing the ball and it all comes out different They all have different arm strength. So you get a guy like Josh. Who Does the ball hundred miles per hour at all times? That builds you up like for those moments you know what I mean it just all. Kind of accumulates. It's it's just muscle memory at the end of the day What was it? Were you a super football crazed kid a UP IN ARIZONA. Just from the GECKO. Because I've you know obviously some athletes are like like you said how to ball at a young age. And then some you know talking to mark Sanchez a couple of days ago and I didn't even know that he didn't even know he wanted to be a qb until like were seventh or eighth grade. And I was like that seems late to me but I you know I guess. Did you know football was was going to be like? You'RE GONNA go full steam ahead from an early age now so I I play football but also very active outside. Outdoorsy kid I Like I had a lot of west coast in because I was always like Skateboard and stuff like that like your skateboard and I was like dude. I gotTa know that. That's what you were like. How many do you still skateboard? Oh yes they're gonna be to dude as a good spot for that right you so I loved to be a mix I love. You know riding my skateboard and stuff like that like always outside doing that type of stuff. I was always. I figured out early that I was out fast. So that's what got me by a good football for a while. I wasn't big at all. I was a small skit on not but I was just faster than everybody out ran. Everybody everybody in so how. Piss we're older guys from you and like like did it make you feel so cool when or guys like God Damn? I can't catch them. So it's it's funny my first two seasons football. You actually enjoy this. My Dad Ford's my birth certificate when I was five Play a year to fucking sue. Tackle football is sell gigs. Their only God so I was like the youngest little kid out there and they were Ariza also small to be out there and I are like rotated at right tackle like defense align and I get destroyed always going back. You know crimes like Ed and so I think it was the end of the second season. The coach would just let the kids play. Whatever persistent wanted to play? Yes never the boss. I WANNA play running back and their colleagues. Oh Okay those. Like the last game of the season where touchdowns they put me in a running back. I get the bog score. And they're like they go to my dad. I want you tell us secret. Run like that second. Give me a ball go score so that like are you next is you're going be are running back in so yeah but ours ours out running everybody. Nobody knew was fast. Then I just wanted to that. Yeah Oh yeah. We got all the footage I was gonNA say dude because like to just score every time you get the ball. I mean were you also. Did you also have some some Shamisen? Some shakes over. You just like catching a whole Ed Jesse later. There's no stopping you. Yeah that's just like it was his God given at that point and you see a lot of people especially like really talented running backs. That's as all god-given like there's there's some things that you can't teach you know what I mean and so that's that's how it was for me but you're going to be running back for. Yeah auclair running back all the until. I got high school Goddamn until like high school in the kid by the name of Dj Foster was the senior running back. Swirl when I got there obviously. Dj's all world scored like six touchdowns his senior year and so a lot. Yes allow tested and I got moved to receiver as a freshman played up in a in Play Varsity so that's a whole receiver thing started. Same thing that you can pull. What you did is as a freshman varsity where you just like ripping up the junior and senior. Db's Yeah I I got a on my first two offers after my first year and I was. I think it was first All state honorable mention. Like all I went to Max perhaps on the country and a discount also `guv`nor is that surreal to even like because again you're having these like accomplish accomplishments and accolades and like you know the proof. In the pudding people probably even like pry prior to high school or probably like starting to be like do you fucking like trying to just get on the Kirk Bandwagon. And just you're starting to feel like Oh man I've I'm definitely on. I got some special here but when you start getting the letters freshman year and just attention nationally. Are you able to stay just completely focusing grounded or is it so new and overwhelming that you kind of lock yourself in your room and you're like Holy Shit like I need to take a breath because like I'm NFL? Bound if I keep my shit together. Yeah Yeah it was. It was crazy because I was like football-crazed always like on my computer looking up. Who is the best seniors to come out of each class like on Nice? I've stars and I was looking at everybody. Ours is obsessed with. I WANNA be a five star like Mrs I WANNA be this. Who are I WANNA go? Look at how they did it. See if you could emulate that. Yeah in so I mean I'm I'm more blessed than I would say. Many people that are opposition. I have both my parents got a come from a great family and so they were both in my life said they kept me very very disciplined in narrow minded in a sense of if you want something you gotta go get it and you know this this little kid high school stuff outside of football that you think is cool and you. WanNa Jack around the Infringer. Doing most likely. They're not going to end up where you. WanNa be if they're GONNA if you partake in all so they're like you see that guy jacking up outside the McDonald's and you. Yeah that's trevor. Like exactly what? Can you ain't kicking him anymore. Because that's what he's doing tomorrow night and you're studying game tape. Yeah exactly right and so I don't know I just. I realized why I wanted to go very very very soon. Yeah in our realized like I didn't WanNa just like you know play high school football and play college and hope that I made it to to the. Nfl is like I want to be a five star. I WANNA go to top ten university. I WANNA be an all American. I WANNA get drafted in round one or two. You know that was like high school. I already knew this desk. What was going to even be that specific like I wanna go in the first two rounds because I mean that's also that's a goal because I'm sure if you're playing with the intention of I just WanNa get drafted. I feel like that's too lofty of a of a mindset right like you gotta be like those first two rounds a that's that's where people truly remember those those guys but it's also it's validating assume more so than than getting picked later would so Men So am tech's name is like obviously like just a Quintessential College Football Town Stadium Team I'm sure you had like shit offers was it was it. Wha- fall where rank with the places and what was that recruitment process like because from what I've seen movies like blue chips or fucking Barsky. Blues are You know just any Friday night lights like that. Shit look so dope and fund to be. It's almost the FRAT thing at USC. And it's like that's a piece of it where you got these dudes be like you'll come to a Laker game forward side and then and then we're GonNa fucking shave your legs makers sit on a wall for eight weeks and you're right cool that seems like that bounces out But like when they're coming at you just try just telling you how great you are. Is that awesome ruse? It's scary. It's I mean it's scary. It's a lot to do with unwinding alive because Dead everybody in that organization. Whatever school that you're talking to is gonNA tell you you're the best thing since sliced bread and so especially nowadays with social media like should I see is is ridiculous. I'm like I don't know how these coaches can sit here until at least kids like you're gonna be the next Lamar Jackson. What are we talking about? You know. It's just there occurred processes insane? I loved it It's a lot though like I remember taking Like literally sitting on On my bedroom floor in I had scheduled meetings were coaches like. I'll be on the phone for five hours. Recruitment cozy cop possibly be telling you for five hours. I mean they just WanNa talk to you know we just WanNa get to know you until you more about our school and how great you look. You know it's almost like envision. The coach laying in his bed twirling been like what you thinking about five hours. Man We talking. I'll call you tomorrow or next week. That's how it was used phone call after phone call and so funny Kyle was obviously a very highly recruited recruit coming out of Arizona. We HAVE BEEN BOYS SINCE MIDDLE. School off real. Yeah me Calgor- up together. That's extra special that yes so me. Cal grew up out here in Scottsdale and cows and number one quarterback in the country a time and had every school recruiting to he took Houston unofficial detector saying then and I was like a a sophomore. I had like three offers at the time and he was like. Hey can I bring my buddy on the visit with me? And they're like yeah. What's his name like he's Kirk is GONNA come check it out with me and I remember going with them and I got there and they're like you're pretty good and I was. You know they're like you're young whatever and so they're like we're going to keep evaluating you and I love the busy I loved every second of it that had will love you. Know they hadn't even offered yet In they came out co someone ended up off remove were little cheesy but like it's love at first sight. It was my first visit. And I'm like seeing Kyle field. I'm seeing all the shit like. Oh my gosh it so this. They're they're just coming off the Johnny Manziel era like they had all the hype in the world is so brand new spread offense in the SEC and remember came down to Nm Asu a Auburn Ohio State Ucla but Yeah man I mean. Acs tough to turn down because of the whole hometown hero. In you know they me on. That might took my official visit the game. They beat Notre Dame upset Notre Dame Notre Dame talks and while and it was just like I didn't honestly I didn't know I was going to an until like two nights before I was gonNA commit and I graduated early so this like December and like two nights before and I dislike welcome home March gone now while what is what did. Asu Do that was so. Do you feel like extra special like obvious. They are just putting on that like do like twenty minutes from home like old towns right there they bring some rose me like dude we got fucking. I know Brett it Franken frogs and ladders and we can go every Friday dude if we want. What sort of extra hometown thing did they throw at you that you will like all right? I've never heard of that will. It was sick. Because when I took my official visit your recruits are allowed to be on the field like for pre game in house walking. When I when I walked out they made sure that no other recruits that was there that day was walking out the tunnel for pre-game so I came out before the team even came for the pre game. Warm warm up so they walk me out. I'm like kind of walking along the feel in like half of the stands like the student section is chanted hometown hero and then they got like the the the signs like people have my homemade paint their number like it was nuts number like whole like this this is for real and Aymer. They won that game in all my friends went there had like three best friends. I went to a suit up. Play Ball there. And so obviously. Dj was there. It was tough to turn down but I knew I had to give away from Arizona. Just get a change of scenery in I. Stay out of trouble man is. It's easy to get in trouble here. It's a fun place to live. There's a lot going on. There's lots look at No you just. I knew I knew I wanted to go like I said it so. Let me go in place myself in college station. Texas or on an hour and a half away from every major city and we'll go to SCO focus on bowl. Yeah if you're away from the distractions hour and a half. That's like just far enough away to the not. Yeah it's perfect It's like Scottsdale and flagstaff. You like dude. I could go up. Get a massage. See what happens or I could stay in your campus and And follow my dream does does the M. Like is that fan base and that stadium. I mean is it as bog as it looks. Is it like second far as the the ambience when you walk in like that I? I'm walking through the tunnel freshman year. I think you were over. A thousand seventy nine yards dude. That's all saying I don't know if that was a record. Oh go ahead now just gonNA say second or not. I with without a doubt there. There's nothing like Seattle. I don't think we your we were walking in that tunnel and like got the drums playing in front of you in the core cadets walkout in front of you with the drums and then they start planning that power by Kanye West in the whole state. Use Janet Goose months every time I think about it and I see it in just like looking back on the Games that I've played in. The stadium was holding one hundred. Eleven thousand people is just You can't really explain it in just being on that field and returning applying against Alabama like College Game Day. You can't screw up that type of stuff. Welcome to king squad mayhem. You're listening. You're Ma'am can I help? It would happening bill. Menard clumsy and stupid high school. Well actually no. I am the bill captain. All right kid you ready for CHECK INS. I was born was going to say I was born. Ready to captain kept in closest thing. We have to a God on earth. Dumpstered sourcing thoughts. He's a complete slime ball right. Oh yeah no question. Do you feel my underfoot. That's not me with something under the table. Feels like a foot doing right now. I'm working I got a promotion. Just lied to Kelly. Why would you do that? I don't know man. I want another shot said Whitman or his way of the lateran bought the hotel us. Do me favor take it easy on Dauphin. Would I'd rather have credit card melt. My boss take care bye. Vitamin is a huge scam. And those girls were in on a too. Don't you WANNA know? Our bodies are capable of work here during the day. But my nights do is cutting everyone spirit. Brash you into a guest. He's unacceptable impersonating manager. And that is a felony. I think that's a felony mall forty five like Jordan the flow. Here we got this. I'm not sure he's Frank. Shut up bitch was online. We begin to urinate and then for real into your pants off. Is the athletic? Like student like you know I would. I was at one five for the Reggie Bush liner I got one year Palmer Carson and then Maybe to actually freshman sophomore junior and senior with Reggie Bush and Lyndale and just hold thirty for thirty Trojan war team like was there for that and that seemed bonkers to me and just knowing few the football players and getting an insight into like being one at a prestigious school. What the pressures like. What the The boosters are like and and then like fans and I mean is it even like is it easy or super difficult to To blend into campus life. Do you feel like you're walk around. Everyone's always standing you especially after your freshman year you came out of the gate letting everybody know like and people college kids especially and all sports fans love when somebody who just got there is all sudden like they can put their superstar label on. It'd be like that's our guy like people love that so I'm sure they did that to you. Yes it was. It was easy to to blend it on campus. And you know especially we go to school in Texas where it's is footballer. Nothing You are But it was fun and just people are so nice their full and yet football crazy but it wasn't nothing to overboard like we go out and stuff. Yagi out of hand and whatnot but people want pictures and stuff like that but campus I feel like our academic staff did a real good job of life for me my junior year my last year. They're like I had two classes. You know early morning where I will get inning. Just get out. You know in hours really on campus that much so they did a good job of doing it for that but yeah it's a it's a real thing it just like China like in and just kind of be a another student. You know going to school Do you do you have any I don't know they're like hazing. Who was the rival with Anna? We so they say Texas but we don't play anymore and they also like are. Sec rival as Lsu. But last two years ago. But I was just Kinda. It goes back and forth. Do you ever remember or get anything from opposing. Fans like airplane high school basketball. I just drove by them up in Seattle right now. A high school drop by mountlake terrace where Big poofy hair and I wore a headband. When I played and their fans were crazy and they were like one of the best teams in the state and they call me like gay Elvis and like all this. I mean like their fans were just they would yell. One can't even try to spit on me once when I was about to shoot three in the corner like you just got those fans hugged up right up against you there in the corner but obviously collegiate bans more separate Thankfully but like was there ever a game where you like shit that this is getting real because you were starting to show a name for yourself and maybe the fans will recognize it. So they're like dude walking. We're getting KIRK head tonight. Yeah Oh hundred. Hour are probably say. Each time we went to death valley and I'm actually happy because not a lot of people say they played a death valley at night in s next to kyle field. That's probably the best atmosphere to play in Israel. Deal when you're playing us you at night yeah Else people down there ole miss or crazy to all miss your territory. Oh Yeah it's it's It's a little different down. There that was that was the one place on West Coast Kid. So you know. Playing in the south was different. We go on the road and we could go Knoxville in Mississippi state stuff like that and you know just pulling up to ole miss for the first time hours. I was like yeah this is. This is deathly. Now what I'm used to the whole world down here Yeah would would you folks travel to games like and all that and just yeah? They're awesome day. They made it to shoot. I almost all of my my collegiate gains. That's crazy dreams go ahead. Oh yeah now I was just saying just because like I said A. M. was such like we go to school in the South Families Number one in so you know all the parents and stuff like that you know they embrace you open arms and when I couldn't make it home for holidays and stuff like that now. My team as parents you know we're taking the in treating me like our kid on a maybe like twice. It's just it was amazing so they treated my family's saying way my my family great relationships and so they would just go in for the simple fact that they had friends out there and they're building a life out there and they're always down there so yeah they're they're they're making all the Games is that an extra I don't know if incentive to play hard but just like my mom you know Will COME TO ALL MY BASKETBALL GAMES. And would you know embarrass me? Sometimes she'd Screama playoff game on with the free throw line down by two at the line. Like eight seconds left. She screams as dead quiet. Just have fun balk like it was just but you know she was so she didn't know how to shut off the the love and support. When you got your your folks at the at the game is knowing that like do something or are you just so locked in that that It doesn't phase you one way or the other. Sorry you could read. How saying like if your folks are at the game does it had something to The way that you play versus the not being there or you so doubt in that that even if they're not you're like what I talked to them right before so that's the same shit. Yeah it gotTa Gallo Easier. I was as I got older But it's still nice at their new college. It's tough to in college home games. Set your parents in the same spot so I was able to find him. Know if my dad like me and my dagga if you couldn't tell real close connection in yeah so when I look towards their way he would always stand up in just a little gesture like a Lesko or something like that though he hit always know. Like if I'm looking in the stands I could stand up but Nfl spend a little more difficult because they sit your family wherever the hell. I'm just like all over the place. I know that they're there but I can't really see them as much but you know it's it's it's still you know even when they're not there you know that they're watching them the proud and that's really all that matters you know Did you have goosebumps or you reminiscent a lot since the draft has happened like that was only three years ago for you right. Yeah that's fucking crazy man like what you're doing in the NFL already is just so puck and bonkers and I know you're so humble so you're not gonNa really like you know Yes and that too hard. But like you've got a you've got guys that are going through the the draft or just went through it and like first of all how many guys like reach out to you to ask like clearly like I want to be drinking the same shit you drank because you're three years in the league and you made an impact right away. I'm sure some of that mark and I I'm talking about this a lot Where it's like. Yeah where you go has a lot to do with it system. The coach like how many guys are ahead of you. There's so many variables and But do you think you can kind of fight through that and still make a case for for yourself as far as being like a you know someone who should be high on the on the depth chart Just because of your play. Like how much can you really control if you go into an environment where Where maybe chips are stacked against you. Yeah I think it's fifty fifty You know like the unfortunate part in on the nature of our League. Is You know based on draft status in at the end of the day it is a business and we all know that in so Picked in the first second third round are most likely going to get more shots to perform improve themselves Fail until somebody takes their spot but when you got like an undrafted guy and he works his tail off every day does everything right in nothing wrong and just our everybody at some point always gets their opportunity. One of the best guys are GonNa Room. He works as hard as he can. And does everything right. You know they're going to give the guys they pay more money. You know the opportunities to succeed but at the same time definitely get taken away from you really fast. If you provide you prove that you provide no value to the team That was one of the things My OFFICE COORDINATOR MY ROOKIE YEAR. Mark mckoy told me is the quickest way for you to earn respect in to earned value on. This team is number one. Prove prove to the vet that you can help them. Win Games. Because they've been around they they work the tail off especially the guys that are five years. Plus they're here for a reason so once you're high drafted guy you're just doing as you're told not much more else in you mess up from time to time you're late to meeting and all you care about is you know your chain that you're gonNA buy like this. They don't they don't care about that won't guys in the Locker Room but if you can control your approach you can show that you're professional everything that you do. From a young age you gain respect really really early and I think that's what helped me out was always had a professional mindset and always just. Kinda did everything that I was asked to do than just found two more steps after that to do that as well in the game respect is. Did you talk anybody? Like from this This past draft like the do Reach out have anybody reach out to you. Yeah I had a of course the there's two receivers from am That went into the draft process. That actually one of them was out there saying committee. Is Courtney Davis He was in this this this draft class in Iot play two years. Accordia AIN'T NAM and You know just talking to him about it and dishonesty Like just enjoy because it's a stressful time. That whole draft process is crazy stressful. Just because you have no idea where you're going to go. I felt like I had. I never had anxiety in developing anxiety along Jeff. I'm living out of suitcases boxes. Had all my stuff packed up. You know three weeks before the Jack has not gotta get ready to to to move somewhere. I mean and the next day more or less. Yeah yeah and I I got. I got blessed because I didn't have two goanywhere. I just had an the end but you know most guys you could move all the way across the country you just have no idea where to go and this situation you're gonNA fall into and everybody wants to play you just you're uncertain about the future so I was like man. Just take it day by day and enjoy every second. That's IT DID. Steve wilks coach the when he got drafted right. Yeah did they reach out to you at some point and even give you like a heads up like y'all were thinking about taking you. You just go into this thing being like I got no fucking clue like even I feel like sometimes teams will start to put something out there. Maybe give a heads up like yeah. We're thinking about this but then it's like why don't even WanNa start wrapping my head around getting locked into one team like obviously a lot of teams. Probably you meet. This point is just to be about where things fall. But when did you know that that was locking you up? Because that's like again dude. Like do what you did in high school and then I I would love to see the stats on On a home town kid getting to play for his hometown team But that's pretty fucking bonkers. So when did you know that was about to be be the reality It's like this for most guys but I don't know if you know this but I knew I was going to the cardinals one pick before they fix me. I the phone. That's really how it is you want like Arizona kind of is like the next pick in you your foreign your life. Oh this is happening. Dang I guess that would make sense. That's why you've seen just like grown men. Just losing their shit right leg. You wouldn't react like that. I don't think if you knew like an hour prior right. So like yeah. I'll give you a little bit of the background. You get. Every team gets what they call top thirty visits and so they bring thirty different players that they like to bring in that they're interested in running for the combat. I flew back to Arizona and Arizona. Brought me in that day and I did. It's not gonNA fish physical. 'cause you go see the Sodium Youth Coaches Right Dinner. Babol software. The dinner is me Steve.

Kevin Garver had had a great Dinner they're like our man know the process Hopefully hear from us now Zach announced a is that legal high five no fucking chest Bob. Hope you're like okay. So I went to Carolina Pittsburgh New England and I think that was it And I visited dusty as well. I'm just kind the same thing you know learning a little Bit Austin. It's powerball so some. Gm's like the week leading up to the draft. You get every pretty much every team causing like is this Yes is this the phone of using draft a yes? Is this your Agent yes art on the draft. Hang up and so you just kind of confirm everything. Obviously I was hoping to go late round one. Because of the Patriots had thirty thirtieth or twenty nine th take yeah Medalla satellite. Pick to objected to maybe go to Dallas and so light that whole back in the day one with rough on me just because I was a kid I don't I don't shoot not that Second round is by any means something. I need to be disappointed. Yeah we worked out but you know you WANNA go first round. I had like two hundred family and friends with me in Paradise Valley in we run out of Housing Party so I got up the next morning. I gotTa work got in you just kind of clear my head chill by the pool all day and so we're sitting there and I think I was the tenth or seven speak in the second round and Do you start to kind of throw some back to when you're poor you like. Hey let's get some marguerite gone because if I'm not picked this round I definitely want be fucked up for the third round a percent. I started right right when I got my workout. Not o'clock on started. I started cracking. It okay for you. Do you like do this. White cloth time clock says fifteen. Yeah the even the day before the first round I mean it also. Two hundred people dude are starting to stress. Because everybody's watching like the picture. I have a picture on my instagram. With like me on the phone I get the call and there's just people surrounding me and so I remember the bartender. We were like you like another drink in. I'm just locked in. I'm like yeah. Sure whatever I'm kind of nervous new drinking someone first round. You know Scott over with us like Oh. That was a long five hours. I totally forgot about but I casually sipped nineteen. So I mean like I said second round is right pick. Before in the six zero two number popped up and I was like Ospel just a scout because they got scouts from all over the place and different or maybe a homey from high school. Dude I told everybody man. I'll tell everybody you'd better not call me. Do not call me a those. You get nonstop right like just bullshit me the ankles to take right now so I literally I had to go to sprint. And just make sure that like all my like everybody had had they did something to wear like only some few people could get through to my phone right in so. I got on the phone and I'm like so six to comes through and you're up and you're like thinking it's not anyone that you're going to have any care for but it's it was is it. Steve Khan from there is on a cardinals how you doing and I was like no in my heart immediately. Dropped not my voice. You're trembling I couldn't even talk so everybody's still looking at because nobody has any idea like they don't know if I think I'd I forget who had to pick before I think it was like the forty niners or something like that so thinking forty niners thing like the the two teams after so nobody knows so I get off the phone in our member like a goes dead. Sea Island are Kinda. Go back like this among so in. I like Canada's look around like I'm going to be a cardinal in whole place arrives in our member ourselves like I'm not gonNa cry and hug my mom lost it just absolute Did I'm getting teary eyed to listen to that show? I'm hugging on hugging my mom and I'm just like I'm just losing my sister. Their my dad's hugging me in. They're all crying. They're like we're so proud of you like you did it in so this is a crazy part so does not grazing for like. Espn is there. Like all the live cameras are there for the draft actually so it's not live yet on the TV. So that Chris. We need you to pull it together. Act like you don't know. Is there like like the the the world has no that you know already? So that's gotTa Fox so they're trying to pull the rug out from your emotional moment. It's great you got traffic. Yeah hometown team suck it up too. So it was like to celebration. So they're like are pulling together. Okay the when you see me like when they announce it. I'm like sitting on the couch on my slouch back and my could tell like. I'd just been crying in the announced it on TV. Everybody goes nuts again and we had a you know kind of Recreate the moment. But it's a it's crazy man. It's it's life changing moment. Wow Dude that is so I mean I know I. Then you probably just get inundated with like old P. E. Teachers Bucking Exco. I mean everyone's just like season ticks. Question right yeah. Everybody thought who? You're like oh I want to deal with a move away and then you're like you're back home so back in my life have you. Okay so take me through. I mean that's bonkers. That's a great story by the way that that You'll never forget that it was the first day then. Once that all wants dust settles and you start getting locked in you. Get that football Brain back on driving up to I guess the stadium right the so the next morning. This is the kicker to about even the first round. GotTa do it like yeah you can go out and party and celebrate which is supposed to but you you gotta be up the next morning like six. Am TO GO IN FOR EARLY WARNING. Press Conference so. I got up the next morning. Got My suit on whatever and I went up to carve facility mark press conference that give your ipad and all that stuff you you gotta get ready for rookie minicamp. I think rookie minicamp was the following week where we report it. Yeah that's crazy man. A all right. So does Larry Fitzgerald the fucking legend like this. When does he hit you up and go? You're welcome to the family. 'cause I've heard this from at the roast of David Ortiz like three years ago and it was like bill. Burr was Aaron Gronk and Dustin Pedroia from the red sox like it was a big east coast thing right and log. In the short time we talked I was dressed up in full. Prosthetic is an eight year old Yankees Fan. So he didn't even know I was a fucking a young dude anyway but once broke the fourth wall and was like. Hey I'm not a an old man. He was like Oh Shit. I don't know but He told me that like and I don't really think about this. But he's like dude. I is like everyone kind of does is with their guys. And you're kind of is like I'm with the receivers and tight ends and like I don't really talk to Tom to really kick it like we're on the field. We our things he's like but he's like I don't have a ton of friends on the team. He's like everyone's in their groups. And then you Kinda come together and obviously he's probably speaking from his experience but I just I just thought everyone kinda was friends with everybody but it sounds like every programs different So I'm curious like with the guy like Larry who is on such a pedestal for most football fans and players I'm assuming he like reaches out and does something right. Sends a bucket a fucking flashlights? Or something what does he do? Like though Two weeks before the draft. I don't know if so I've known. Larry I'm Larry. When I was five years old there was a picture going round of MEA. His football can't oh. Yeah so that was like the big thing. Once that happened that that picture got pushed everywhere yet. Football campus rookie year in flagstaff and I went in. There was a picture of me When Michael Ball Pez Larry? I was five Out Fires all like five six years old. He's a rookie in the NFL home. So Dude We had known each other like in passing. And he has said congratulations to me After Mar College career. Yeah we got a big game. He's I go in the Blida cough like this stuff. Like that. And Always had been an idol mine and two weeks before the draft up Clayton his celebrity softball game. Yeah you invited me out. I played in celebrity softball. He's Galore man like hopefully we can be teammates. Share Shit were teammates. Holy yes so We descended out. You know building relationship from there. And now he's he's like one of my best friends now. DURING QUARANTINE. You know we've been working together a his house every day and just He's probably got a real piece of Shit Jim Yeah it's awful. It has a couple of benches like a curves like those the stretchy things got curbs. Yes it's it's everything's got rust fucking bonkers isn't it? Yeah it's he was a good life but You know he's a he's so good to everybody in the room though he just loves being around the guys and I think that's one thing that keeps that keeps them coming back is worth such a young room now and especially with my class. There was a bunch of guys that you know he kinda grew close to all of us and where we keep saying that. Wiki poll in the twenties out of home. Now we're starting we're starting to give Benjamin button going backwards but what what have you. I mean I'm sure learned so much but like what? What do you In your first year like what did you get from him and it can be an field thing too because that's also a guy that's done it right off the field as far as you know you can't be as revered as he is You know if you're play isn't consistent but also you do stuff in the community like you've got a rep of being a good guy you're not popping up in in In Old Town you know like Buchan holding you know wet t-shirt contests are motorboat festivals. Like he's doing doing things the right way so like do. Does he tell you about that or you? Just Kinda know it. And you're like since I look up to. I'm just GonNa Kinda follow suit. Yeah I mean I always learned so much and I still am continually learning a little things that he does that I pick up on in a I've taken in used it in obscene words gotten me in just majority of off the field to be honest with you Yet like his approach on the field is consistent as August out in. You know he's is the goat for a reason in my eyes and he's the first ballot hall of. Famer that you know still playing but you know just the little stuff that he does often feel like you know to be random Wednesday night after practice and Ho- call me and be like Christian what he's doing on. Mike. I'm just telling you are key me at Phoenix Children's Hospital in ten minutes. We're going to go say hi to this kid real quick like just little things like that or will we used to go to the movies Every was now we go every Friday on my rookie or read. Always go to the movies and now we can popcorn and stuff like that and he had hand. It'd be ten ten bucks whatever he had just handed registered dude fifty and be like just pay for whoever's bond me you know just just little stuff like that like. Oh Yeah doesn't you'd never see him posting about these dozen the community. It's always everybody else posting what he's doing right and like you don't have to donate and then immediately make a video montage on your instagram with. Drake. You know saying you know drifted back. How good your or special occasions? Yes like if you want to. Cacao attention to that organization or whatever you know yeah exactly like we're we're all we're all building brand we're all using our platforms to to greater for the greater good but when it comes to little things like that he just is above and beyond anybody else and just how to to carry yourself in an hold yourself in certain situations in you know from little things how address in you know. It's just it's it's. It's life lessons in things that you know. He's he's taken these used and just the way his mind works. It's just this is the best person to be on a daily basis. How fired up are you for this season? I mean you know. Sounds like they're working diligently to figure out what's going to happen. I just listened to you know Seattle Sports Radio talking about the no fan thing But that aside like hopkins you Larry you guys beefed up your d like kylo coming in. You know obviously probably way more confident than last year. Now that he's just comfy in the system. Like you got a young fucking stud coach. It's like showing dope as views of his house on Draft Day. I mean like there's a new swagger in as a man and I'll tell you speaking as a hawks fan I'm like. Hey guys can you give cloudy the fucking money? He wants right So we can stay competitive because as e is a I mean dude right like. Is that something that's discussed with you guys over tax all these shit like you watch in the draft accident or when hop got Got when that deal got made for him like now. When you look at this roster. Are you dislike? Holy shipments Gaza limit. Yeah we like we. We know we can. We can actually compete in invited to to get a playoff spot in and really take this thing somewhere. It is exciting and I can't wait. You know fans are not I just want to get back out there and play in like with with the way we ended last season in. You know I had say that big winner. Seattle for us like that that really that really let go to lock. We're like okay. You know we we got some here. We got some 'cause it's not easy went down there. It is not easy to win down. That's one of the hearts places. It is a divisional win. Yeah E. ATL at the end of the season is cold and windy like that all took a bite out of our like NFC west hopes. Like I can't imagine anything sweeter than knowing that you just like you know took took it away and hearing the twelve fucking Kreider. Their coffees right but it was. It was good man like we. We know we got some now and so we're just a we're just excited to put it all together and honestly just excited to see in person because we're And stuff like that now so just to finally get out. There is going to be fun. Is Your coach doing Is having like a young coach. I don't know how much older Wilkes was In cliff but like his having that young energy like even though peak carols can push seventy like obviously like you hear from those guys that like his youthful spirit and just I like that that plays a role in the way that everything from practice to To you know Tuesday meetings or whatnot is The way people like conduct themselves is it Is it cool to have a guy? That isn't too much older than you. So that you feel. Is there an extra level of late ability or sometimes you're like dude? I can five years older than me. You don't really like. I think maybe I actually have a better idea because I'm actually the one playing like. What are you what do you? What's your view on that? No it's a is definitely better. One because just the positivity yet he comes from in his he's he's been under old school coaches and whatnot in Anchorage to have that that old school mentality but that also mentality is ninety. Five percent negative. That comes out of your mouth Is just how it is. Local else will coach his are and I worked for. You know some people in some organizations but you know everything that came out of his not. This year was positive like always bring us in. Yeah you have to to to buy. Something has asked when something's not right but he'll do it and then move onto a positive because you know there's there's no sense of of trying to bring us now we're grown men. We know how to ownership in the only thing that we need to focus on is going out there and win winning on Sundays and that was the main thing that he said is look. I don't care if you come in here with all your chains on dressed in the same clothes you were in last night when you're in the building but once we're out there on that feel we're here to in. We're all here to work. Were in the classroom towards one. Common goal is to win football games. And so as long as you're doing that I could give As long as you're not breaking the law or breaking team obviously but other than that. We're here to win games. You guys are professionals. This is what you're paid to do so I think just having that we have that leniency to like do whatever we need to do to get our groove and be the best that we can be in on that you know. He's going to be their boss whole Sidon and you know. Put us in the best position to win. It's just as good and you can just relate better to him. I think it's just a it's been a great move for us. Fuck Yeah Dude While you're you're definitely your doubt into the the I mean you've probably had your fair share of media over the years starting since high school but do you are like you're one of the best. I've seen it just giving full answers back. I can't tell you the amount of times as a comic especially when you see the post game interviews like sued young coach. That's gotta be exciting Yeah no it's going be He's got a he's got a great energy and he's There's got some got some cool shirts question and you're like Jesus Christ all right so I appreciate thoroughness dude. You're not awful guy I don't to keep you too much more from your fucking shooting spree you're about to do online on twitch but First of all thanks for doing this man. Yeah you're just as cool off the bills you are and Hopefully when this season resumes I try to hit a lot of seahawks game show. They let me fans in the building Hopefully we can kick it at In Arizona or or or at centurylink. Yeah easier Seattle for Sir Elliot. Yeah anytime you know my my Girl is from Arizona so the last probably four years go four years so I think almost every game. The hawks have played the cardinals. I've flown back. Made a thing out of it and it's dude. I mean you speak to that real quick because it's always a good game and for whatever reason it's become a rivalry I think going back to a Carson Palmer. I think the years when I think the first year when when the cardinals Again like put the punched Took the The Punch Holloway playoff card? You know what I'm saying like there's been this this thing built and it's always competitive and you guys coming to us is now the toughest game of the season it. Do you feel that on the field? The ravs are a lot of Shit Talkin. Now there's definitely you know there's some there's some shit talking but I say that though the the main thing about that game is just so physical like you know we're like we're about to play Seattle. It's GONNA to be four quarter like heavyweight fight like there's nothing being held back in you know especially with that defense on your guys like Bobby Wagner. It's it's physical out there. Nobody's holding back in. Let's all divisional games though. You know we got you know the forty niners to and I'll yet. La like every game in our division. That's why people say it's the best division the NFO are now because hell. Yeah just the stars that are in our division. Now you got John Hopkins. You Got Aaron Donald. You Got Russell Wilson Cloudy like Chandler Jones. Patrick Peterson like the list goes. On of how many elite players are his division when we get to claim one. Another is like is as good as is out there when you're talking like high level skillful ballplayers. Oh yeah you played against sure? Wasn't Sherm your first year. Still in the hawks no so ceremonies he was on the forty niners. So how can you talk a lot of Shit? No he he he he doesn't. I mean every competitor is going to talk with at some point. He's definitely not a you. Know the young guy that he was before when he was in Seattle but It's it's it's fun because garden. Go against him two years in a row and just having to battle against one of one of the grace's been fun and he behaved better right. Sar makes you better right on a percent and he paid me a compliment. After the second time we played up in San Francisco after the game it I remember decision meant a lot. Now's like that. That's you know that's one of those moments really like Richard Sherman Das a compliment. Like I'm getting really good and You know he's he he. He likes game and stuff like that.
