I'm so excited to talk about winners and losers today, we're talking through the NFC teams. And when I say winners or losers. It's not just it's really not even talking about necessarily which rookies went where. But which rookies effect other players on these teams there were some big time winners based on, you know, competition not being drafted right for where they line up. Oh, I mean, I I was holding my breath the entire draft overtime Oakland was on because you know, I just had a dynasty startup draft. Derek carr. His his whole career can change in the blink of an eye. You know, is is he I like that it goes to Jarrett car. Meanwhile, Damian Williams skyrockets to adopt him. Meanwhile, Terrel Henderson drafted directly behind girly. Look so much to talk about. But I get what you're saying.

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. Somebody one good somebody one. That's that's how giveaways work. So we'll go ahead and jump into the deal the day. Come on. Now, Dante Pettis sign jersey pristine auction dot com. Thirty six dollars eighty five cents a sign forty-nine jersey, Dante Pettis. That's unbelievable. I mean that is truly like this seems chicken the when we talk about Dante Pettis sometimes because I am an owner in dynasty of Dante Pettis as I am an owner of Dante bettas in dynasty. Because of watching Dante Pettis play football us, your then I went out and got him. It is not my my bullish nature on Pettus isn't on the basis of hope. He's good. It's heath. He's really good. And then you go get him. That's why I believe he's a number one. I think it's kinda crazy. You can go get a jersey for thirty six dollars though. Yeah.

Start or Sit (NFC); Beat the Waiver Wire; Cardinals-Seahawks Recap (11/21 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from cbs. Sports it's time to dominate your fantasy league. Here's some combination of adam. Dave jamie benn show everybody. This is fantasy football today and last night's game was a fill in the blank blank. Fantasy games dave good. What's perfect per perfect. it was It was a quality player against the andrea. You had kyle lowry. His worst game of the year terms of fantasy points. Who had russell wilson has second. Worst game of the year was a qualified de the answer. I was looking for a dud. Now's good it was. I think people who look brave enough to start tyler. Lockett were very happy. I think people who were brave enough to start carlos hyde. We're very happy. Drake and edmonds were good no matter what the format and did we see the seattle defense. Get a little bit better and could they be the. Dsp that you coast with for the next several weeks. Maybe oh yeah if you can still be should because some leagues you can and that would be philadelphia and washington and the giants it so it would offer the giants the jets in washington or their next. Four games Yeah it was kind of a like a drowsy. First-half second half was pretty good. We'll talk about that game. Seattle winning twenty eight twenty one. That safety in the end zone was a huge play. We got the de'andre calls bad call. Yeah the holding happened before in the before. Did you hear my prayers explanation. He kind of felt like the holding didn't start until the end zone. Like it looked like it to me and and optimize people but to the referee the expert. He didn't really start actually holding him him. He said until he got into the end zone. So i think my prairie guy. I think he's sort of straddle the fence there but i think he thought it was. I mean he had enough thaw sideways grabbing his jersey. Right off the scrimmage all right take it up with mike picking up with mikey. Lions news including dander but also kenny golladay and everybody missed practice. Basically from the lions so we'll talk about that are limited earlier. That's good stuff. Yeah are we going back to ezekiel elliott this week. Are we trusting todd. Gurley against a great run defense. That's given up. Only one rushing touchdown to the six running backs that have had fifteen or more carries against them. They'll be the new orleans. Saints jameis winston. This week. Tom brady this week. So i'm going to be some good stuff. Some beat the waiver. Let's get to the Before we do that. let's get to the game. Seattle twenty eight and arizona. Twenty one all right chris. Carson should be back next week and let me ask you this. Who would you rather have an aggressive season with the cardinals. Kenyan drake or chase edmonds still say drake but it might depend on format you said. Pr league i did. Yeah i mean edmonds only had six touches getting drink. If you're gonna give him four catches a week three catches week. Anything in that range. He'll be the better of the two right since. He's comeback from the injury. Well shoe not. He had eight catches going into this game and he does something if this is the drake. You're getting then he'd rather have if this is not the drake. You're getting presents. Okay but you have to make the evaluation now. Do you really think he's going to be involved in the passing. Aamer is just going to be that fluky game. It's probably going to be that fluky game. But i still see him as their main running back. They're short yardage goal. Line guy he's probably going to outperform edmonds more often than not. I think you could you can. Npr start both. Do you have any concerns about russell wilson. That may be. They will become more of a running team. Go back to their roots. A little bit wilson was pretty conservative in this game. You know the. How many times did we see him. Kind of load up and not take the shot downfield and then talk it and run. He had over forty rushing yards in an average. They ran the ball pretty effectively. In this game this was tied for the fewest pass attempts to the year for wilson. Do you think that this is going to be concerning where he won't be mega awesome. I think to a man to a person every beat writer i. I saw last night on twitter. The atl was praising this as the best game that they put all your and so offense and defense so you know this. This was a p carol game and and this was kinda my expectation going in was that they were going to be a little bit more conservative because they got one of their veteran running back healthy you kind of assume that became cap was gonna have a tough game just because of what happened to him the last time he faced arizona. And you didn't know tyler lockett health and so you know. Obviously i was joking. About how perfect. Game for for for these guys but For russell. I think if they can have him after throwing seven interceptions the last two games be a little bit more conservative they probably would prefer that and the fact that if carson does return and we twelve They probably would prefer still you know establish their own game because we know what teams are in the playoffs. You know it's great to be throwing the ball over the place but you have to have a running game to be successful in place and this team is really headed to the playoffs. So i'm sure they wanna get that aspect of their game fixed on top of the fact that this was one of their best defensive performances because carlos dunlap has been a difference maker since they added him and they were able to get a pass rush for the first time all season. So they don't have to. Maybe have some of these heroic comeback efforts from russell wilson. So i think i wouldn't be concerned about it because he told me he's running ten times. He carries in his game. I'll sign up for that with how he usually plays so i think he'll be fine. I wouldn't really panicked about russell's. But i wouldn't expect them to be the number one quarterback in fantasy from this game forward. I don't think he'll do it. I think if they've got carson and that means they've got carson an hide to get that run game going and if the defense is better than they're playing worse opponents they don't need russ to throw thirty five times all over the place right maybe. Those opponents are bad enough where he can just be so efficient and And then again. This sure yeah. That's part of it though. It's like decay makeup on five targets could have still four for eighty thousand and let's address metcalf because that's probably what he should have had. He had a forty yard catch called back so that would have been four for eighty six. I think it was exactly forty yards. Maybe a little more than that. If it were forty four catches for eighty six yards and a touchdown on six targets. He schooled patrick peterson on a play. That got called back on. Hold and as chris towers mentioned on f five. That happened to him few weeks ago against the cardinals he would have had a walk off touchdown catch in overtime and got called back so look. You don't have to worry about him. Facing patrick peterson again and he locked. It had a nice game. He was started in eighty five percent of leagues. Do you think real quick. Do you think carlos hyde eats into chris. Carson's production or do you think they just go back to making carson. The workhorse carson will play next week. I think it's the type of workload that had on thursday and card twenty running backs. Both barbara had six thirty. one figure. it's probably eight for pie. Because he's you know a more proven player game and carson gets the rest will get around fifteen touches a week. We'll more than that. Okay and then finally anything else to say about maybe christian kirk larry fitzgerald has had eight catches for sixty to sixty two yards both games against seattle. Same verse christian. Kirk tyler la okay. You know what was a second tyler lockett. Do you sell or do you. Do you hold called you. Get in trade for tyler. Lockett still have their trade deadline to go it. it's already passed and half of my leagues. But sure you could see what you can get for lock knowing what we know about. Seattle potentially not being this crazy passing offense moving forward right okay and they're not gonna get what you're expecting return but you never know that's why you put it out there. What would you want would you trade him for. Ezekiel elliott in a heartbe. Yes really yes. Okay christian kirk. Do you consider a four catches fifty yards on six targets. And the andre hopkins said fifty one year. I mean this really wasn't a bad game for christian kirk just kind of kind of bad game for everybody right. There is a receivers outside of fitzgerald. Npr so you know. Throw this out. Seattle great game plan. you played. Well i wanna see something though. How many games has kyla murray thrown for more than what he threw last night. We through what two hundred sixty nine yards I know the numbers were down from. That was the biggest disappointment of all worse probably. Yeah he's a seven year. Yeah picked it up with the passing He's had a few games with three hundred and sixty three hundred eighty yards. He said he's had a number of games. There's been right around two seventy two hundred eighty yards. This was fairly typical for him. Larry fitzgerald kind of a wrench in it okay. He was using them as short area receiver. They've got the patriots next week than the rams giants eagles niners after that. Who do you think was started in more leagues kenyan drake or chase edmonds and. I'll say edmonds wrong. Kenyan drake just barely forty seven percent started edmonds forty. Three percents started dave. That was thursday night. Football not honest over drake into illegal rabble. Apr yeah that's nice bow. That's the same exact question. Oh my a nurse by the way So my free agent. Pickups the giving league were amari cooper mark cooper. I picked joe mixon nice so to players and crappy. I've just getting mixing crap either. Just those two but all of the other guys were didn't see what the transactions because. I did quickly okay. Well i'm sorry you didn't get dobbin cooking. Aj brown and epic christopher cavalry. All right d. andre swift has a concussion more on that in just a second later promote a few things watch. Cbs sport seats q. People noon to noon eastern on monday through friday ten. Am eastern on sunday. If you missed the show you can watch it on demand on the cbs sports app on ott devices. Go to the cbs sports app. On your smart tv. And scroll down until you see. The familiar faces sunday. We got f. and five dropping at eight thirty in the morning h. q. Ten am one pm. Twitch at noon eastern we got the friday mailbag coming up. And make sure you're listening to the fantasy football today and five special episode saturdays. With jacob gibbs player props you know all those stats. Jacob gives jacob gibbs gives and You're gonna love it. You're gonna get to some good advice for player props. Dfs those types of things so the andrea swift has a concussion. If he does not play at carolina would you start. Adrian peterson or kerryon johnson. Not with confidence. But if i'm desperate running back. And i missed out on all the other guys off the waiver wire then yes and what. I've seen from the lines over the past couple of weeks. Yes they've committed the andre swift. He played seventy three percent of the snaps in their last game. Carry on his actually played more snaps the past two games but peterson's had more touches not just the last two games but basically the last five games since the by over carry on so i would imagine that would be the primary back. Carry on film in maybe work passing downs. So who would you start him over. Would you start peterson over. Let's say the baltimore running backs of rams running backs. I thought about brown. I would start him over acres in henderson. I would start him over the ravens running backs. Yes yeah what did you say about in that mix. What did you say about you. Would you would not. I would start malcolm brown over peterson. Because brown is going to be involved in the passing game. I think carry on would be probably more involved in the passing game than ap both guys are probably gonna get taxes that most my god adrian peterson has been so bad his last six games. I don't think i can do the math right now. But he does not have a carrier longer than thirteen yards in his last six games. He's just been just awful yes where he's at in his career. He's not going to have a lot of explosive plays but he does have in three of his last five. He does have at least eleven touches and that's with swift. So maybe there's something to it that he's i mean movies old. He's all the metoo can't get those long runs anymore. He slow okay. Kenny golladay mispractice. Everyone on the team is limited or out something like that. What including matthew stafford. What do we make of this. We pre this game yesterday and well what we're supposed. What are we supposed to do about the lions. I mean if golladay is out there and stafford plays. I think you start stafford as a low in number one quarterback it's good matchup against carolina by their defense being good as we saw last week I think you. Can you know if god is out then. You could go back. Marvin jones as we've seen he's been fairly productive in the last three games without getting all out there. If everybody's out you're not touching stafford you're touching the panthers. Dsp okay no golladay swift no stafford. No no i'm saying staff replaced. I expect staffer to be out. I would been the panthers defense becomes. Joe mixing missed practice. Geo bernard or zeke. Jia t higgins missed practice with an illness. Clyde edwards either missed practice with an illness right covert same with through johnson. Okay teddy bridgewater. Teddy bridgewater is likely out. So we preview the carolinas detroit game yesterday even today's nfc home games. Let me let me ask you about this with teddy bridgewater out jamie. Are you still confident in. My davis likely. How likely are you still confident in. Mike davis as your start of the week and should we be starting dj. Warren robby anderson. I don't think much would change things. You know pizza walker. I think will come in and do some nice things I buy in his offense. I buy into what. This system is so mike davis. It's still. I wouldn't change him at all. I think it's the detroit. Defenses proven to be very inept at stopping running back. Stop and pass catching running backs. I think they would lean on davis a little bit more Job radio be creative and how they run things so. I'm fine with davis. You want a downgrade dj more and robby anderson. That's fine but you know. Just make sure you're not sitting them for guys who are in similar situations or one thing one thing that might help. Mike davis is that. If it's pj walker pj will run and so that rushing threat from the quarterback typically helps the running back because defenses have to account for both players. Yeah so i. I was discouraged about davis because his playing time was down last week he played. I think he was right around. Fifty percent of the snaps. That was weird but they fell behind. And maybe they wanted to get somebody else in there and that type of situation but this week if he's healthy. Pj walkers in i'd be a little more encouraged. I'd be excited to start. Mike davis but at the same time if he's going to run that means fewer catches in most scenarios for the running back. Which is you know. What's more efficient runner. If he's more efficient runner. And we're starting data's jamie starting because he thinks he's going to be great no matter what he does. And there's a great chance of that. But i think i'm starting davis because i think he scores the lines of allowed so many touchdowns the season. I believe it's eighteen total touchdowns running thirteen rushing five receiving nine in the last three. It's ridiculous if he doesn't score it's just an unbelievable farce. Yeah if he doesn't score. It'll be curtis. Samuel calvin. Ridley was limited in practice. Please play calvin relief. He said he was itching to get in two weeks ago before the by and they wouldn't let them so play damn you. Let's get a full practice in on friday. That'd be nice alvin. Kamara has a foot issue. But he says he's fine davante adams meanwhile has an ankle issue. And he's he says he's not guaranteed to play. Just so you know jamaal. Williams has now played five games in the last three seasons without davante adams or last two seasons rather five games in the last two seasons without about they atoms he caught a touchdown in all three games last year and he had eight catches for ninety five yards in one of the two games this year. The game was a dud though. But he's he has seen a boost in his receiving production with davante adams. Drew lock was limited in practice. Noah fant practice and seems on-track to play sammy. Watkins was limited. He may have had some type of setback. He may not play at las vegas and green bay. Good news for them without the atoms news is bad but starting cornerbacks could be back this week. Kevin king and giro alexander at indianapolis which by the way the colts could be without. Starting safety cari willis and those are your news and notes. I've got some tough calls. I wanted to ask you about but first dave. You seem a little stress or you came in. I'm stressed i think you need to know. What about me stressed adam. I had the best weekend last weekend by parents were in town. Were in town. My daughter had her bat mitzvah. And when we talk about these these moments where you just need to chill. I've done it after. Like calamity happens. Or after i put furniture together. This was a different type of moment that show. We just celebrated it was hours and hours after the fact my wife and i are at home. The kids are playing in the backyard. And i got that moment to chill. And i looked at my wife and i go. You know what i'm gonna have a coors light and it was that rocky mountain goodness. It was chris it was clean. It tasted great. There was no aftertaste. It was fantastic. And i was able to just soak in the moment of you know me getting older and everything is flying by but also celebrating my daughter celebrating with my family. It was fantastic. So i use that time to chill and i did it with coors light and it was refreshing and perfect all right. Raise a glass that can for that matter. And don't miss the new packaging cores lights already hitting the shelves clear skies that invite you to sit back unwind and drink it all in and the iconic coors light mountains still turn blue and your beer is as cold as the rockies so yeah when you hit that reset button reach for the beer. That's made to chill and get coors light in the new look delivered straight to your door at gets dot coors light dot com get dot coors light dot com celebrate responsibly coors brewing company golden colorado. Okay i'm gonna ask you about some tough cosworth. This in the sort of rankings dispute style. Quick hitters here. Jd mckissic or todd. Gurley npr jd. Mckissic against the bengals. Todd gurley at new orleans. I just told you. New orleans is face six back this year that have had fifteen or more carries and girlies fourteen or more in every game girly scored in all but one game. However the saints. Just don't give up rushing touchdowns though six running backs at five fifteen or more carries only one of them scored that was aaron jones so npr jd. Mckissic against the bengals are todd. Gurley at new orleans because they're back back in my rankings and i'm taking mckissic and look i. It wouldn't surprise me of girly scores. That's what he does. I have a hard time saying that. You should absolutely positively sit. Him are the odds against him this week. I would say yeah. He's a bus candidate. But i do think mckissic continues to catch the ball. Because that's what he does. And that's what washington's offense is all about saints are warning. Nearly averaging fifty two point three rushing yards per game. Yeah this the saints number one. Three point four three yards per carry. And i think i don't know if you've been noticing the bucks run defense hasn't been quite as great lately. After since losing via i think the saints might might be the best run defense in football. They're all them in the colts. And the bucks. I would say the three that are really in that discussion. Let's go with the next tough call a couple of cowboys. Ezekiel elliott or a mark cooper. At minnesota ezekiel elliott and four games without dak. Prescott is averaging three point. Four one yards per carry. He has scored in pr eleven. Five eight an eight p pr fantasy points. And i know you're gonna say. He had eight catches in his only game with andy dalton not true because he had no catches in the washington game dalton played most of that. Game so zeke. Or cooper cooper in fact i'm going cooper an lamb over zeke npr. The in both. I think you know fresh legs will help them. Getting healthier across the board will help. And so i'm i'm moderately. Encouraged by zeke elliott. Coming by i mean. Didn't you just see what the vikings defense did to that. There's run game on monday night. I'm just messing around with that. I i think the cowboys are going to have to throw in this game and cooper's giving you modest numbers. Npr three past four. He was very dalton against arizona. He was and and i really like the match up in the slot for lamb this week. So i'm bacon on andy dalton getting a little more time in the pocket and connecting with those two. I think the receivers would play. Well i just think this game's equal find the end zone for the first time since week five. I think being back involved in the passing game again. A moderately encouraged by him. This what is sentence. Zeke hasn't found the end zone since week. Five i've got some sort of advance stats on him. If you'd like to hear them i was going to. The game preview by the way debut might be convincing me to start ceedee lamb lineup. Because i've crappy players on my band. Oh great what. What a sell job i've done. You've already got them in your life back at starting overall jones at a p r league. Let me give you a couple of legal items. They're buddy stopped me. We tell you go dema williams spot for two weeks. Do not cool. Yeah i didn't even notice did not even even not. Have you been sending your lineup. Two different leagues. I saw i saw last night i went. I not not me not ninety p. I don't have them there. I have one. Mott's one league one league let me tell you about ezekiel elliott okay. Espn wrote a good story about him. So the question was facing six or eight men in the box. Eight men fronts among. Nfl bac has the fifth most carries against fronts of seven defenders or less. So no he is not facing eight-man. Francie is facing a lot of seven man fronts and still doing poorly as a rookie in two thousand sixteen. He averaged three point one yards before contact and one point nine six yards per carry after first. Contact this season. It's down to two point. Zero six yards before contact and one point seven five yards after first contact for comparison sake. Dalvin cook is averaging two point nine yards before care before contact. Zeke set two point zero six huge difference. There and cook is averaging two point five nine yards after. First contact. Zeke one point seven five yards after first contact. So you know. Those numbers are not kind to zero. They're not kind of as offensive line. And i you know. Look i know. People think i've horrible takes and say some wacky things. I don't know if he's still a great football player. I'm sorry to say it. I don't know if he's still great running back we haven't seen the explosive plays. It happens sometimes running back and happened to todd. Gurley looks like it. Happen to melvin gordon. Is it happening zeke. I'm not ready to go there yet. Guys but i think if he has another bad game i think is a discussion worth having. I think it's a discussion worth having after the season. Because you can't just make that call after four or five games if it's consistent for the rest of the year where that offensive line led him down and the numbers are clearly different than we're going to say. Okay well. he needs the offensive line to be healthy in order for him to be good. We used to believe that zeke would be playing well behind five old. Grandma's on the offensive line didn't matter maybe it will matter. Yes i found it. Two leagues cheating. Let's get to this magazine league. Jamaal williams spot. Okay i do cheese and our id both annual. And i are spot on with that. Oh he's not an i. r. o. Well that's a problem then he. I think we've found the real goal. Man who dave start against me last night. Oh you started. Russell wilson and deondraye hopkins. I will take that in july. Okay moving on yeah. I'm sorry everybody. That is a poor form on my part easier you. How much do you guys trust. Michael thomas is he a tough call this week because he hasn't been the thirties low thirties. Wow wow he has michael thomas in the low thirties. Unless that's mike thomas the other one but now he's got him thirty second and non. Pr twenty six. Twenty six npr. Goodness start him this week. it's atlanta. They're not good. I think james will be good for thomas. it's been a bad season. He's been banged up obviously. That's issues with punching teammates and eat now. He's at some point is going to start to play. Well it's not an be a shock of its against atlanta not very good. I've got him fifteenth. And i don't think he's the top twelve guy this week but i think he still a guy that you want to put near lineup. I watched i watched that game. And he doesn't look slow. It looks just as fast as he did before. So i don't think he's. Being hampered by injury is route still look good. It's he's getting downgraded quarterback this week. There's no question about it. The the the the thing that you're right it's a downgrade but the thing that might be an upgrade is maybe sean payton does allow them to throw the ball down the field a little bit more because they know that breeze can throw the ball downfield the same level of success that he has in the past so jamison. though is thomas downfield guy had like consistently are they're going to throw five deep twice. Think we may see some more shots in the scene. You know the you know as opposed to a five yard dig out or route. Yeah a little bit more of a skinny both knows some chances fifteen yards down the field and we know that thomas can do that. I was thinking a little bit more about like thirty yards downfield. I don't know how many of those types of plays thomas can be on the other end of but and this is why i kept him ranked where half him. Winston threw ten times last week. Five of them were to michael thomas to were in the end zone so he knows where to go with the football. Yeah top fifteen for all right. Let's move teeth. Tastes them hill. Where would you rank. Tastes tight end. Rankings if you some leagues you can play hill a tight end. And he is my handle tied in and i quite frankly i think that is an absolute no brainer. You have to keep scrolling down to find as a good thing inexpensive. He is so i mean. It's not a no brainer. But it's a good value Where would you rank hill on your tight end. Rankings ten right around there. I was gonna say thirteen so just outside of the top twelve. So who's the best tight end in that game. How would you rank. Three tight ends in that game hill. Cook in hearst her hill cook. I think i feel the same way. Okay that's fair i mean. Isn't there a chance that james gets off to a rough. Start and sean payton's like nuts to this. I'm just gonna put hill and there and then tastes the mill gets twenty fantasy points rushing throwing and catching and doing all that jazz all right. Let's beat the waiver. Wire going to be honest with you. Most of the players i found are rostered in a lot of leagues. So i'm sorry about that. It was just sort of the way it worked out this week. But here we go. Zach ertz is still seventy percent rosters available in thirty percent of leagues. Take a look at zach. Ertz the seahawks the if you still can philadelphia giants jets at washington. Some leagues allow you to pick up players. Who have already played on thursday. Obviously you can't start them the current week but you can pick them up the washington d. s. there seventy two percent roster there at dallas next week they sacked our six times a few weeks ago allowed three points at a huge game but they've also been kind of like bad against other good match ups so keep that in mind maybe nelson agholor. Maybe a raiders wide receiver at atlanta next week when my nephew derek carr he's you know he's roster and a lot of leaks he's at atlanta to as at the jets maybe grant at the jets. Maybe daniel jones at cincinnati. Or if somebody dropped darius slayton are still that's actually a good one. We know how how much. Cincinnati struggles against wide receivers. If somebody dropped darius slayton which i did somebody dropped their sterling shepherd. I know jamie didn't one league because he had to make those decisions this week. Take a look at those two guys on their by week. They get the bengals next week. Maybe evan ingram to somebody cooking. And the two i think in that game are appealing the giants and the bengals. The seahawks defensive still pick them up. I'd still pick up. Carlos hyde too. I mean there's no guarantee. Chris carson plays next week cleveland. The eighty two percent roster. That's gonna be a tough one to find but they're at jacksonville. Maybe teddy bridgewater at minnesota. If you really need a quarterback next week there are no buys next week so beat. The waiver won't be as enticing saints. The eighty two percent roster there at denver. Josh reynolds maybe wanna see what's going on there at eight. I think seven or more targets in three straight games eight or more targets and three straight games. He's led all rams receivers in targets catches yards area arts red zone targets and end zone targets over the last three games pretty good so he's thirteen percent rostered. People in your league aren't cheating stashing. Deebo samuel could be available. Believe i'll do it. I'm really sorry about that. Era set by the way. Oh yeah good still. Jacob came up with that one green bay against chicago. Their jalen rager jailer. Rigors also get a lot of targets lately target share anyway and he's thirty six percent rauscher and he's facing seattle good opportunity there and carson wentz. People might be fed up if they dropped him. He's seventy two just in case he's back the form yeah alright startup. Howard start on meter. Let's go real quick on this. Want to get to the game here. I was take too long starting meter on these three games. Cleveland philadelphia baker mayfield. Zero one kareem hunt ten ten. Nick chubb obviously a ten as well. He's an eleven jarvis. Landry thirty percent target share in three games without odell beckham for landry but not a good matchup. Where what are you doing landry five. I'm stashing landry. But the hope that when the weather starts to get better and he starts to play better but it's supposed to rain again. So i mean just another bad weather game in cleveland. Okay and Who hooper for Emperor tatum hill. Okay carson wentz to. That's too harsh. Two point three for any eagle other than miles. Sanders urged place. yes avert doesn't play got it. Okay got hurt or women fulcrum. Oh yeah that guy remember him. Well i asked him. If the weather's bad on the you can go with them but if assuming they're not playing in a tornado i think he'll be okay. Yeah i'm just worried about his targets. Here i mean you know. It's a one game sample size but it was a bad sample. I so i don't think he's the most things number thirty best. Cincinnati washington joe burrow seven Seven twenty giovanni bernard or or joe. Mixon it's funny. Because i i liked. Gop himself better than i do. Coming back to that way A eight nine okay. How 'bout tyler. Boyd and t higgins higgins is a ten boy is Eight nine for eight for boyd. Start them start Alex smith ten three k. How about antonio gibson seven they who do you like better this week give center mckissic and pr. Guess okay. mclaren's a must start member. The bengals stick to wide receivers every game every anyway received more than six targets. They're always good cam. Sims is asleep or dfs just absolutely. You should be able to find a better receiver than camps on the waiver wire. But maybe you're in a deep league sims to someone to look at splaying times been through the roof. Logan thomas are awesome. Hooper thomas Thomas has ten plus pr and three of his pass for atlanta. But hooper like hooper was playing really well before coming back to a terrible weather game. You know he was five catches three games in a row. If i'd rather have hooper then thomas for the rest of the season. i'm not sure if i would. I wonder if alex smith and the track down mentality helps thomas more. They might okay. Last game is atlanta at new orleans. Matt ryan a Really back he's attend really back. he's not back as name. How about Yeah Hayden hearst eight seven. We talked about janus. We've talked about mike. yeah all right. That's emmanuel sanders for Three or go to the games. Tampa bay at the rams. Here's your stat of the game. I want to make a case for jared goff. As a sleeper four straight quarterbacks have scored twenty or more fantasy points they are derek carr. Daniel jones drew brees and teddy bridgewater. Most of them were in the twenty to twenty two range but all four of them. Cardinal jones breeze in bridgwater through multiple touchdown passes. We do know that the bucks have a very good run defense and we just know that. Golf is not throwing the ball in the red zone. We talked about that on wednesday very very low red zone in green zone. Pass attempt Numbers for golf. But you know like twenty two twenty two points. Maybe that's good enough to finish top twelve or close. I think you guys haven't closer to twenty. So i'm i'm making the case office a sleeper. What do you think. I get what you're doing and i think it's i think it would be more possible if he had whitworth at left tackle. I'm nervous about that protection. And anytime jira gospel and a game where defenses are able to pressure him. he wiltz. He's that type of quarterback. So i sure you know when we talk about brady. I talked about how. I think he can get rid of the ball quickly and make good reads and throw with good accuracy. Goff could that too. But i don't know if he'll be nearly as successful and when they get inside the ten it's not all right. Let's see we're golfing with the football. It's we've got three running backs let's rotate them in brown would be first and let's score on the ground. I wanna lay this game out a little bit for y'all tampa bay. You look at. The defenses are third in yards per play eighth in scoring defense. The rams are second yards per play second in scoring defense and i look at the box defense. Though and the in my opinion the toughest match-ups they've had have been the saints. The chargers the packers and the saints again and three of those four games. They gave up thirty one to thirty eight points. So and then you'll get the rams and they've played the nfc east. You know the bears. They were great against seattle last week. But i guess what i'm saying is jury is still out on these defenses but right now they look like two of the best and in terms of the offense is. Did you know that the rams actually average more yards per play. I think the average the same amount of yards per play their eleven twelve yards per play. But the rams run place they actually have more yards per game than the bucks but they're not nearly as good in the red zone so the buck score a lot more points So that's kind of interesting there now. It's getting to the rankings. Tom brady fourteenth for jamie eleventh for dave tenth for for heath and we talked about that a little bit earlier but dave. You're a little more optimistic about brady. If you want to give a quick thought there yet just top twelve potential but not necessarily top five potential. I don't see a three touchdown game coming for him. But i think he can connect for a couple of scores decent yardage. Hopefully not turn the ball over. Hopefully not get sacked a bunch. I think the bucks learn their lesson from the game against the saints and too many guys for him to throw to evans godwin. Gronk brown the running backs. I think that there's going to be so many weapons at their disposal and they're counting on. Tom brady to make the right read. I think he can do that. Keep the ball away from jalen ramsey and And have a good game not a great game but a good one jamie. The rams run defense wasn't great at the start of the year but in the last six weeks it has been dominant and of course we know the bucks. Run defense has been really good all year. Are there any running backs. You wanna start in this game. No this is part of the reason. I don't like brady. When we've seen the get one dimensional. He struggles because when the run game not there to support him. He's had bad games. The new orleans game is a perfect example that they didn't run the ball. He was terrible because you get one dimensional teams. Know what you're gonna do the thing that's going to be tough for them in the run and in the past is that monster in the middle brady hates pressure up the middle. Donald is best in the business. And he's going to disrupt the run game. They're they're linebacker playing great Learn flights having a monster season for them. And i think it'd be tough for this entire offense for tampa bay. So i'm i downgrade album but the running backs and particularly i think ronald jones as for the too. Because you know his carries will be there. Leonard fournette viola would say for npr. But i try to avoid both. Is ron jones. The best running back in the game Yes he is the best running back in me. Okay so then. Let's spend the next forty five minutes talking about the wide receivers in this game. Who's the best that who's the worst. I will throw josh reynolds in their so. They were talking about six wide receivers. Who's the best. And who's the worst. I will take godwin. The as the best. But cooper kupp. Not far behind. Mike evans and robert woods. Make me nervous. Given what their star percentages. Probably going to be. Because evans is most likely going to see a lot of jalen ramsey because he likes bigger physical receivers and evans's their biggest physical me. Let me interrupt jim. Sorry good thought from frank stamp on twitch last night he thinks ramsey might spend the most time on antonio brown because evans is the slot like a lot forty percent. Or something something like. I don't remember the number. But evans is in the slot. A lot and antonio brown for the so far has not been in the slot. Either at all or very much at all We know godwin will. So what do you think that jamie. Would you think that maybe there's some merit to that. Oh absolutely but i. I mean we've seen ramsey go inside to this year. He's he's changed his game a little bit so I think that's the type of receiver that ramsey likes to shadow. And i'm sure the rams will do that okay and so you said godwin then cup. Various williams playing really well for them to. Yeah but that's not a matchup that anybody fear in tampa bay brady is not gonna think twice about throwing at williams okay. I'm gonna throw some running back. Names out there and i want you to tell me which of the wide receivers in this game. You would actually start over these running backs. Mike davis for sure. No no no sorry tell me which of the wide receivers you'd start over the following gun. Sherm davis overall of them. Giovanni bernard yeah. I think i'd say none too. I'm debating him versus godwin. Guy wants my favorite receiver in the game. Let's go spend a little bit lower. Let's go to jd. Mckissic god win. Evans. that's godwin. that's a. Let's go with clyde edwards ealier godwin evans. That godwin cup in. That's let's go to damian harris and let's say pr godwin godwin in. Okay dave like a himalayan us damian harris. How 'bout savant akhmed med It's only do a couple more here. It's about yes ivanoc med. And then we'll do. Name hines op. ed. I seem to No i'm gonna go. I'm gonna go a little deeper with augmented. It's going to be godwin. Evans brown gronk to probably cup in woods. So it'll be behind them all on ppo. So are you saying dave that you have all three bucks wide receivers ahead of cup in woods. No i've got cup. And i just didn't give you the right order. I've got cup in woods ahead of antonio brown okay. Do you guys like cup better than woods. i do. Yeah i mean you targets for him you know including the twenty one target game okay. So then against my. I'm gonna finish. I'm gonna finish the discussion with this. Just give me like must start. Good star bad star. You give me like one or two words for each player chris. Godwin good star star. Good start mike. Evans leads the nfl. Sorry leads the nfl and red zone and green zone targets. Mike evans good star for dave shaky for jamie antonio brown bats flex i cooper kupp good high an flex robert woods shake high flex. Dan josh reynolds flexible best. It's funny how we're not giving him the credit other thing is like we've seen it with our own two is the buccaneers carlton davis shuts down. He's amazing got on a big catch last week and we have seen that a little bit to think about the giants game. How many chances. Daniel jones missed and then the week after that. They were a mess. And like i said they give up thirty or more points in three of the four games good opponents they crushed the packers. I mean there's been some vulnerabilities there. i'm just yeah. I don't know i have a hard time. Trouser struggle with pressure. These guys we've seen very many examples of this year. Where you get pressure on them and they will and on both of these guys fair. Which offense do you trust to handle that pressure. Better coming into the game. The great question i mean. I think you've got to trust brady more because of the offensive line concerns for the rams but the way that the rams play If they get their wide zone running game going then there play. Action is fantastic. And that's when gough picks you apart if the buck stop that. Which used them that they're going to because they're on defense is so good and then golf gets trouble. He's going to be a disaster. That's what happening is miami. And so this is an interesting game for both of these teams. Because you you've seen when teams get physical with tampa bay. They don't like offensively than a like. That's apple in new orleans. This is the defense that is true when people get physical with the rams. It's going back to the super bowl loss against the patriots. They don't handle it very well. And so you mentioned that the schedule has been very easy for the rams. For the most part you know they. They've managed through some of their tougher games lately the bears in the in the siachen particular but that dolphins game they got punched in the mouth by really good defense and this is a really good defense and so i think the the offensive line is going to be key for both of these teams as it is for most teams. That's not saying very much but a brave game pressure of the metal. He's gonna start seeing goes again and if gough is getting pressure anywhere he's going to struggle so i think it's gonna be a scoring game. I play the under bet. Rob gronkowski must start with a pulse. Yes okay has touchdown catch and four of his last five games. Ramseur five straight drop one against the state. Yeah yeah true. That only three targets last week. That's why he had has them just outside the top eleventh and non thirteenth. Pr david jamie album. Top six and tyler higby sleeper repeal. Their right for tyler. Higby boxing such down four touchdowns to tight ends in the last four games. Yeah i mean you don't know if he's going to be involved past four targets from game to game rams dst low end starter bucks. Tst a little bit better than that. In fact we're just gonna sit on the rams running backs do we get into that. Yeah okay so. I mean jamie. I asked if there's any running backs who wants to start. He said no. You agree. I i think we both agree. That brown is the best one and it's tampa only allowed eleven or fewer fantasy points to each straight running backs. There are eight straight game so running back has more than eleven fantasy points and it's been eight nine. Pr pr in the past four. So they're run. Defense has been good. I start brown over both broncos guys and all the ravens guys. yeah with okay Green bay at indianapolis. No i'm not gonna okay. Yeah green bay at indianapolis every other. We're ready to move on. Here's your repeats. That of the game gave us on tuesday. A running back as a hundred yards touchdown in every game this week this year against green bay. So who's it gonna be. Who's going to get one hundred yards a touchdown dry. Trust ninety hines if you can you know. There's not a must start but you know if he gets the lead touches He's going to have a good game yellow he'd be does get the league. That's gonna have a good game because he's been so inconsistent and jordan. Wilkins don't even bother so. No one of these guys will probably score. When be surprising at this taylor But it wouldn't surprise me at all. If ninety nine played the most and gets the most touches. I mean two game so far for them. This season that's happened was a disaster for them was a great game for them week. One was a disaster because they were chasing points in a surprise loss to jacksonville and then last week they had one of their best games offensively and he was their best running back. If i'm frank reich. I'm sticking with that until it fails so i don't know why they wouldn't go back nine. He's he's he gives them such a different element offensively. Because you know when taylor's in the game they're probably running not a guarantee obviously but they're probably running probably more of a power running game power running attack straight up the middle. You know something. That's not very creative. They can do so many different days or nine mines and it's not like he's not like he's just rolling his way through the season when he not getting carries. If getting carries you saw last week he was explosive. It's the fear of the commitment. Not being there because after week one when he had that big game in week one wasn't running the ball to the same level. Okay i wanna believe it but in our yes hines over taylor non-paper i'm still go taylor because i think he can score and i think that this coaching staff still wants to try to get him going but every time jordan wilkins is on the field. I'm going to like scream at the tv curse. The other part of the with hines is that this is a good offense that they're facing if they're chasing points. It's almost a certainty that hide behind. That's for sure. That's the reason why i think you trust hines is that i know the defense is really good. They are in great season but eras playing the mvp level. And i don't think they're gonna stop him. They may slowing down. Stop him. There's no devante adams not even advances. There i don't think they're gonna stop aaron rodgers though slowing down to make things easier these if adams there but i mean he's great games without adams on the field already this season. I think live and other games while. Yeah he's had he's had Without davante adams like four straight games with thirty or more points or something like that going back to last year. Both of them. Okay yeah fifty. Three thirty to thirty four straight games dating back to last year with thirty or more points and six point for passing touchdown leagues without adams. Now this will be different competition for sure but let me finish up on ninety nine zero. Would you start over ronald jones. Which start over malcolm brown yup. Yeah how about rex burkhead. Or nyheim hines heinz. Go hans okay. That was your first out of the day. Your second stat of the day is about michael pittman. He has seven eight targets in his last two games against the green bay packers there have been eleven wide receivers with six or more targets and seven of them seven out of eleven saw games eight or more non points twelve or more. Pr fantasy points. So came wildfire without king on. I think it's been fairly evenly distributed. But i can i can check on that Do you guys have any faith in the passing game. Because i keep mentioning this. They haven't had a good running game. It's led to a lot of pass attempts for philip rivers. And he's been he's been kind of kind of good through the last four games so yeah but against the titans and he played great he. He didn't get finished the game Jacoby percents touchdown. He had over three hundred yards and a touchdown in that game of eighteen fantasy points and the two prior to that i believe it was detroit and cincinnati and the game that he struggles against baltimore so if king in alexander play i'd be more concerned about rivers but he's in that you know. Oh i'm stuck. I lost excuse. Me allows breeze. A and josh allens on a by. And i didn't prepare and so you know rivers alex smith you can get james. Let's say you know these. These are okay options but you know rivers would be less attractive if the packers corner there. Okay rivers are golf. I've got a. I'll go rivers as of now but if if alexander and kanger in i'm gonna play golf. So here's the narrative on aaron rodgers that some fantasy managers have he has just destroyed crap competition all year he faced one or two really good opponents and he was horrible against tampa bay and i just laid out that tampa. Bay's defense is has actually struggled against good match ups but they did not struggle against aaron rodgers They struggled against good teams. I meant good offense. And then he faced san francisco and they were. I don't know if they're good or not. He crushed them. Stay also against new orleans. I know they weren't the same defense that they are now but he had a good game there. They were horrible when he face them. and but he did have a good game without davante adams anyway This is a team that gives up the what the second few a second fewest. Fancy points the quarterbacks only to have scored more than eighteen quarterback but the you know the competition hasn't really been that great against the colts guys have problems. Starting rogers right none. Okay i mean it. It's it's downright if there's no atoms to an extent you know he's still going to be top ten. Yeah but like if you have rogers and herbert. I start herbert over. Rogers nurturing stirring rogers overheard you know. I'm not gonna start winston over him. I'm not gonna start borough over. You know the guys that are in the lower range. No would you start cam or an rogers without devante. Rogers i think i would too. Okay matt ryan. I'll take ahead of rogers without without adams. yeah start. Aaron jones jamaal williams and interest. There's no devante adams he's in the flex conversation andy's in the conversation okay. Talk to me about. Mvs ends art. Don't expect lazard to play a whole lot unless adams's out if atoms is out then i think the packers really don't have a choice. They'll put him out there. But nbs is gonna be the same guy whether lazard plays adams plays whichever downfield target guy that rogers is going to try and take some chances with boom bust flex. He's got ten targets the last two weeks so he's been really successful in those ten targets three touchdowns but doesn't score. You're gonna be really really disappointed. And adam just your point about the lions like the colts who they face like. It's it's so easy. I mean like staffer them up. Borough should have had a bigger game. He doesn't get touchdown but he went for three thirteen in that game and he ran for a score You know because they did a good job against lamar jackson but not the same type of thrower clearly. Tannahill did well against tannehill but oftens lines. The jokes could have had if aged brown catches that ball. Run for a touchdown. You know it's a much different game. would you alan. If davante adams is out would you start. Lazard or mvs. Over let's say cooper kupp robert woods. No no not those guys about antonio brown yes okay. You know if i needed somebody with that type of crazy upside. I would start him over brown. But i don't think it that way. Packers guys over. All the broncos guys robertson is culture great against tight ends. They haven't allowed a receiving touchdown to tight ends year. But if adams out tiny was actually a star when adams was out would you start him his value would certainly improve but you know low end started he would he would make the top twelve already so you might be able to pick him up if adams's out. That's the only way we endorse that. Sixty one percent rostered robert robertson. And i believe that. Is it for this game and michael pittman. Michael pittman okay. So adams places obviously the best wide receiver. Who's the second best wide receiver in this game. pity thinking you make the case for pittman and let me tell you something like we don't love pittman this week because you know we convinced. But he's forty percent rostered and this is definitely a beat. The waiver wire guy is another good game. Then you might just be seeing a second half breakout. He gets tennessee next week. At one hundred yards against them he gets. Houston then vegas than houston than pittsburgh. It's a great doesn't necessarily be a good game but if it's still seven target right and that's something you buy into right all right. So this is his toughest matchup rest of season. Michael pittman is a is a beat. The waiver wire guy for and just gonna guess. We're not trusting. Colts tight end right. Nobody is better for one of the two guys. If jack doyle's out philadelphia rocks alex philadelphia cleveland. Here we have four games left guys stat of the game number one just just a little note here mile. Sanders has only caught fourteen of thirty targets. This year that is terrible for running back and they've been so close to connecting. Last year he caught seventy nine point four percent of his targets so i think there is some receiving production still wanna come from miles sanders that we just haven't gotten so whatever you're starting miles sanders stat of the game number two philadelphia. They're pretty good against wide receivers. Check this list. All of these players had sixty one or fewer yards and no touchdowns against the eagles maclaurin woods a. j. green luke. Deebo samuel on my are spot. Juju markey's brown slayton once cooper lamb all bad games. So what do we do jarvis landry you can flex pr. He i just want to. I'd rather stash him on my bench for now because again expected to rain. They're going to run the ball. I think they're the eagles. Offense is gonna struggle because the eagles offense just tends to struggle And so i don't think is gonna be huge game for jarvis landry but i do think there's been games come travis fordham. Since jalen reagor returned he has twelve targets and those have been somewhat low pass attempts game test them games for wentz twenty seven one of them. That's bad but thirty seven the other low for once but not that low. So i'm guessing fogleman's the only wide receiver. You wanna start for the eagles. That's the case for me. I don't wanna start at all. That's interesting lumber. Thursday and a touchdown in four five games but nobody was there the whole team with estimated okay but he still their best outside receiver. I think any should get more targets. Last week was the first time he didn't have seven targets and seventy yards in his last five anyway and i'm not giving the browns credit for good pass defense because mother nature was on their side. The last two games at home not going to be a problem for wentz because myles garrett is having a monster seats that's true which is why having a big rangy target ten to twelve yards. Downfield is going to be something that helps them in more than it would help rager. Is that gonna win time. Because he is now got her back to games in rio. They still using richard rodgers solar so running out. You know the personnel. They have capable pass catching running backs with sanders or scott wherever they decide to use whether they're connecting or not the throwing them. You have jeffrey back. Just on the field. He only one target last week. Doug peterson said his. You know his Involvements going to improve so now there's another target or two or three or four five whatever that goes and rigors obviously commanding targets. It's it's a totally different scenario than what started for full gone because he was the only guy that reagan wasn't there to. Sean got hurt. That stretch got it wasn't there. I mean you know just a whole slew of things that worked in favor. I think he's a good number receiver. I think somebody you definitely want to hold onto. You're not gonna drop him. But the other part of this is the way cleveland slows. The game down in yesterday's factor weather into it. John watson was thirty pass attempts last week. Derrick was twenty four steps on the road at cincinnati. Thirty seven forty. Seven past borough but the game before that was ben rothlisberger. Twenty pastimes teams. Just don't throw a lot against cleveland because of time of possession and how that works in their favor. So i just don't know when one's gonna have the volume is gonna help folks. He can score. I mean i hope he does. I just don't trust it after last week. That was that was a bad sign that he did not have the same level of involvement. Forget about the production level involvement saying okay so eagles tight ends. You said start earth if he plays start. Goddard efforts doesn't play yup. Yeah and started by god. It's been so bad last. Two games combined five catches for forty eight yards on seven targets. Almost all of that production at the giants. Yeah he really just sad one. Good game this year. Okay so low end starters. So would you start like jared cook. An eagles tight end. Got sircar right okay. Baker mayfield is outside of the top. Twenty he just does not throw enough. The cleveland running backs are both going to be starts. Would you start. Kareem hunt or chris. Godwin may ask you that. I'm sorry i will start Not close yeah i. It's a good run defense here that the eagles have not that seems to matter a good. Run offense for the bright. Yeah they they run on everyone and then we talked about the cleveland. Why you're not really starting the cleveland passing game. But austin hooper one catch last week to targets but the previous three games like i said five cats in each of them six or more targets targets and each of them. The eagles have been pretty damn bad against tight ends so best tight end in. This game is blank. Got as a player. No as a fantasy guy. I wanna thank god. But i wouldn't surprise me. That super okay. This is volume. That's the thing. Volume is so crucial for the browns. They just don't throw there as heath would say about hooper and got her size cleveland. Espn jamie fifteenth days eighteenth for heath eagles the nineteenth for jamie tenths for dave four for heath so pretty different there but at least two of like you could start the dsd's according to two of our ranker's cincinnati at washington your stat of the game. Ooh this is fun. All right contrasting styles here. Washington allows the second fewest fantasy points the wide receivers because they see the fewest wide receiver targets in the nfl only to wide receiver three wide receivers marquez brown marvin jones amari cooper event. More than seventy two yards against seventy two yards against the football team but is the team. That's the fewest wide receiver targets in the nfl. Joe burrow is second in the nfl and pass attempts behind. Only tom brady and brady hasn't had his by so a team. That doesn't see any wide receivers arguments against the team that throws the ball more than any other team in the nfl. I believe per game pretty fun stuff. So with that said day of your confidence in the bengals passing game. What is it. it's good. it's high. I think that borough is going to continue throw. I still don't give credit to washington's defense mainly for the reasons that you laid out last week. They tried to do something a little bit. Different against detroit. They played a little more man coverage this was after the lion scored on them early in the game. I i don't know if that means that they're tinkering in that. They're trying to figure out what might work. What might not work. But if they stick to their coverage which is what they do a lot of boroughs going to pick them apart. He's much more efficient against zone coverage than men. So joe burrow or jameis winston borough for me janus. I think there's more upside with james. The one thing. I i'm worried about burrow. He came out of the game last week with a gimpy ankle. And i think almost every washington defensive lineman. Jason include former teammate. Of job for brief moment. s- ed. He was pissed he he asked around verify. Go speak to the media like you. Don't hear those from young player like us like he was just. He wanted to take accountability. For how bad they played. And so the nice thing for borough. Is john williams and bobby harder expects to play so you know getting some healthy bodies there but this past going to be a problem for him. I mean pashas been prompt from all season long. So he's going to get to act you know he'll probably turn the ball over once or twice he's going to have a very jameis winston like game. You know he's probably going to be three hundred to into when be surprised. If that's the case a volume will definitely help and again gio makes them more multidimensional In how they attack. think so. That'll be a boost if he's out there as opposed to joe mixon but burrows a very good low end starting quarterback this week again. I think winston has a higher him. Would you guys start. Joe burrow or derek carr borough. Okay angios must start. If he plays he'll play. Gio started mixing does not play is mixing to be top fifteen guy if he plays gay. I think he'll be right in there. Tyler boyd and t higgins are they top thirty is oh yeah both of them. All right. great. I've gotta higgins in my top twelve. Hey all right and let's do it. Yeah tyler boyd. When he's had bad match ups he struggled. We don't think this is a bad match up as long as it gets the targets. Alex smith is outside the top twenty Alex smith or bigger mayfield's. If you're desma. Smith smith okay. I mean smith is most passing yards the nfl last two weeks and look at look at the bengals. The last few weeks thirty points the rivers thirty nine points to mayfield. Twenty one points to tannehill thirty. Seven points the rothlisberger. That's three of the last four. Quarterbacks they faced rivers mayfield and rothlisberger. It's not exactly rouses burgers great the others to come on. They all scored thirty or more fantasy points. They had forty four. Twenty eight and forty six pass attempts and alex smith is throwing the ball ton. So there's there against sleeper appeal smithian credit. The the the amount of time that he throwing and something click for him in the second half he was throwing the ball. Downfield moore. You know may feel more comfortable addressing his leg a little bit more so this game. The hope would be that this game could be a sneaky. Bonanza you know with the way these two teams have a chance to to score you like the running back like three of them. And there's a lot of receivers that we like you know certainly one for the washington side of things too for the bengals side of things. I wish it was three for the bengals side of things. All right tony gibson. I don't see how anyone is. How a lot of people are going to be sitting him. He's top fifteen and Jd mckissic is twenty one in vp. Are for dave jamie and heath. so he's just ahead of todd. Gurley for dave npr. He's well ahead of time girly for jamie. He's gonna be ahead of duke. Johnson is that right do johnson versus. Okay yeah not to go. pr right. It's probably not going to be struggling. He's he's so nine day each four minutes crazy absolutely and you know that's that always give about the wide receivers against cincinnati that it's now thirteen of the last fourteen with six or more targets. Have either had eighty six ers or a touchdown. My hope is that the second wide receiver in this game is is jd. Mckissic who does line. I'd be three guys because logan. Thomas has six targets. The last two weeks of the bengals aren't very good against tight ends. Either there's been the last two weeks but before that they allowed six touchdowns in three games too tight ends. Yeah so it's weird. It's like we're just making all these cases for all these sketchers. Alex smith is sitting there. I think i like smith better than golf. Okay antenna all right. Happy to see smith play. Oh yeah it's pretty awesome. Yeah terrible maclaurin by the way. Just a little red alert for you. I know you're going to be starting a bit in these two games. With alex smith. He has an eighteen percent target share. So you know it's not a it's a great match those two but we'll see how it plays out of course you're starting in. He's top ten in both formats. I believe and bengals. The is usable. Low end starter. Washington d. s. t. Seven for jamie twenty fourth for dave not really agree in fact borough i mean that's what they do and that's what borough does. Yes now if i go to the rankings beijing i type in football there. They are seven twenty. Four and ninth for jamie david. Heath football team is this our last game atlanta new orleans. What happened to dallas minnesota. That i leave it out Let's do dallas minnesota right now. Okay do you. Would you like to quarterback in this game now. No cousins more than two quarterback lease cousins is wide and why not cousins. I mean he's been really efficient. He's got twenty one or more points in three of his last four games and twenty five or more points four times this year in nine games. You don't have to throw that on the nose into of his last three. How many thirty six yeah. It's probably not gonna happen in this game or not. We know what it is against cowboys. I mean before rothlisberger script. Yeah that was okay. But before that the three games before rothlisberger three straight quarterback through twenty four to twenty seven passes less than two hundred yards but they all had two touchdowns. I'd be surprised if it's over thirty but it could happen. Start dalvin cook. What do you think about feeling and jefferson this week. Just those guys are annoying. Not thirty thirty. Who's better dylan feeling. A non jefferson and people. I don't know if jefferson's going to get the targets. I mean we're going back to the same thing that we just got done talking about with cousins. Is he going to throw thirty to thirty six times. But he doesn't efforts in at this point though. Yeah well i agree but there have been enough games to know that if jefferson doesn't get the targets he doesn't get the fantasy production and you're left feeling sad. So what. About amari. Cooper versus theline in jefferson cooper better. I've got cooper behind feeling ahead of jefferson and david lamb i do. He's going to play in the slot against jeff. Glad that's a matchup from college. They played against each other in college. Although not necessarily after after play and gladness allowed a bunch of numbers from the slide about sixty percent catch rate over one hundred yards after catch three touchdowns and i could see lamb just feasting on him who's best tight end in this game lamb feasting by the way like that Donald scholtz. If you told me herb. Smith was out. Then i would take rudolf. If irv smith is in then i'll take and smith is practice seats last two days on a limited basis. Okay here we go. Ezekiel elliott or michael. Thomas half pr I'll take thomas ezekiel elliott or a steelers wide receiver. Format hat have either. I'm gonna take the steelers guys. I'll take jude. You an and diontae johnson. Okay zeke or clyde the already. And i think that's it dalvin cook the start. I think right star cook well. I haven't finished my research on it yet. Talk with him. He told madison. Get ready for a some work. This he also talked up earth. He jamie you asked him about if he could name a sleeper on both sides of the ball on earth smith was his pick on offense minnesota. Dsp is certainly in play their seventy nine percent rostered but their top six so play them atlanta new orleans stat of the game number one five tight ends have caught. At least one touchdown against the saints and four of them had six or more targets. This is against the saints of the falcons. I think this is against the falcons crap steph typo of the game number one all right. I'll be right back and i'll check on that. But i believe this. Jared cook stat. He has a great matchup but he doesn't get targets atlanta's a lot of touchdown to each. It's really played. Anyone five touchdown. Five tight ends of. At least one touchdown again atlanta against atlanta but four of them have had six or more targets and jared cook. Just doesn't really get that. He said that one touchdown to a tight end in their past five. So yeah. I mean he's got jared cook eighteenth you guys have him top twelve and non. Pr top fourteen in pr. You wanna talk about. Jared cook should do. I'm curious He was asked by the media the season he said these avenue down near he admitted to it and then he He came out and said he's open to rectify that i. I'm just curious to see what's abba james know davis's track record day pointed this out one day muscle drafted you know that his his connection with nickel leary At fsu and then it carried over to the start of his nfl career with oj. Howard and bernie gamay touchdown standpoint So we'll see you know if If this factors against A secondary that throughout the course of the season more times than not has been battle against tight ends. You know so the one capable guy that has struggled against them. Really is noah fant but we kinda no fan has become. Yeah okay. Let's stick with the saints then. Jameis winston is like low end starter. Check the updated rankings. He is twelfth fourteenth. And eleventh. For jamie dave and heath respectively. Would you start jamie or stafford. If stafford's got everybody and he's pricing and full on friday. i'm starting him Yeah right now. I have stafford ring tired but if staffer does not have his guys then it'll be lower. I wonder why heath is low. Matt ryan got him fourteenth. You guys have met ryan in the top ten teams so obvious. Matt ryan is just so that is a slight to heath good to me dan. When when calvin ridley is playing. And who the when calvin ridley. Julio jones are healthy you just start him. You know he's really good. That basically how you guys feel about matt right. Yeah i mean. I don't think they're gonna have success. Running you've kinda laid that out already. With what tiger lillies looking at in terms of this run defense his. He's coming off one of his best games of the season last week. He averages twenty two point two points per game in his last five off a bye. And so you know time to prepare phone. And he's familiar with a game they're gonna be thrown a lot. I think he'll he'll be. He'll be good if not great. And hayden hearst is top seven top five. Pr top seven or nine pr. He's coming on last four games. Fifty four to sixty eight yards four to seven catches in each game for hidden. Hearst saints are getting a little bit better against tight ends but they still give up the fifth most fantasy points. I know that last week was the first time in a while that a tight end had more than like twenty three yards against the and that includes gronk and hunter henry and tj hodkinson. Against the saints. Anne anne thomas not local saints having allowed to touch under tight end in four straight and sixty two yards. Is the max that they allowed to attend that span. Yeah and that was way more than any other tight end. Okay so we know the deal here like there's a bunch of studs in this game is julio and there's ridley and there's kamara gurley is an okay start because he scores all the time but this is going to be a tough match for and there's ryan and there's tight ends or are there any sleepers. In this game you could call. James leeper allama zacchaeus emmanuel sanders ymusic. He s. if if there's no really thought last time against the broncos there was several hundred yards in four over hundred cool. That's it for today's show. Thanks everybody good luck in week. Eleven we got the mail bag for you on saturday. We got a bunch of stuff for you on sunday twitch. Hq ask f. t. on twitter over the weekend. So yeah we'll tell ruling the browns placed myles garrett on the reserve covid nineteen list. Let's start over. Sorry alec things a little more interesting for philadelphia. Yeah i wish. I cut that. Yeah it'd be a lot of their with. He's not there now. We'll talk about that on the mail bag. Shell for dave and i'm adam weekend.

Andy holloway jason moore and migrate. Welcome in any mike and jason. The fantasy footballers back with you. Tuesday waiver show streaming quarterbacks on today's episode. Some good points. The jets are still winless. They did give it their all. Now let us let us say. Let's say i will say for myself. Sunday's game happened. It was the tampa. Bay buccaneers new orleans. Saints was supposed to be a just a battle of two juggernaut division three lows just punching each other in the face and we got a giant versus a little baby lamb team right. It did not work out. It was super boring. Last night was a pretty good gay man that was supposed to be at trash and it was awesome. It was very fun. You had a little bit of everything. Daming hairs before you enforce it left with an injury. He looked good. Rexy goat head was making really unnecessary juice. All this is like playing madden. Hit the button too many times. The joe flacco going deep the rashaad pyramid. That was a fun game a very fun game to watch a good pallet cleanser for what the bucks left in there. Yeah i mean if you you'd just like flipped the jerseys right from sunday night. The monday night. We got what you expected under the wire last night and that would have been much better for fantasy as well. I don't know how many people were say starting to kobe. Myers the should have. Yeah i mean he was. He did his best. Richie james impression on monday night. I just an explosion of and he's he's somebody forward that seems to be a go to receiver for camp. He does and booty. Scooting was back in action. Not so much scooting all over the field but the two rushing touchdowns his weird laser beam throw their that. He had one at the end where i think that. If it moved completely horizontal there was no vertical adjustment in this ball. The camera couldn't even track it. it was slight is. It looks easy. So i don't if over him to throw the football i don't know it. Looks like he is in tremendous pain when he throws. I feel like he's i feel like when he drops back to pass and then he follows through with the past. It's like how. I would throw a javelin. It has to jump steps with it. Like i'm like. Yeah but he got it done man. I mean he was for the most part very accurate and yet thrown short. I mean no no. Stefan gilmore made a big difference last night. Yeah i i don't know if you know he got it done they. They manage the clock. They won the game they. They probably shouldn't hold a parade for defeating the jets on monday night. Football by a last second field goal. No it's probably more of an indictment on you know where the patriots really are right now. Well let's for the patriots. Say this i mean. They're they're in trouble still at three and five but they came back and they won and if you remember two weeks ago when they were applying buffalo cam newton did fumble on on a drive where i think. They made it to the red zone and they were. They were way. they wouldn't go range. They were going to win the game. But unforced a camp fumbles. Today they are just a couple of plays away from foreign four and a couple of plays away for two and six all right. We have a busy show today. Waivers to talk about getting towards your fantasy playoffs. Speaking of which there is a fantasy playoff primer episode. Tomorrow year that brooks has been. You've been working pretty hard for once. Oh yeah. I don't it up this week. No that'll be a fun episode tomorrow. You find us on twitter at the f. f. ballers before the show joined the foot dot com is the fantasy football community Eighteen eighteen thousand strong over there. And you get the bonus episode each and every week. What else do we have gone on. Anything else Anything else from last night's game fantasy wise takeaways denzel mims Led the team in targets per shot. Perryman a couple of touchdowns. Both of these players were not on the field in the beginning. Part of the year for the jets. I know that we you know there are punching bag of rewards and we haven't had a lot of options there but perryman brought into exactly what he did last night. Be a deep threat. Had two touchdowns mims seems to be More and more integrated into the offense and flacco seemed to be more willing to throw the ball deep than we've seen from darnold so that's something to monitor depending on darnold's health swimming. He comes back. I don't know if that takes away from pyramid. I think it would. Yeah it's chicken or egg. Though right i mean darnold's been so prone to the short pass. But then say i would be too if i had jamison crowder and no outside receivers. That's fair that's absolutely fair. All right news. Time news and notes from around the league right brandon. Iu deebo samuel good to go for week. Ten kendrick bourne is back on the covid list. Vance mcdonald is on covert list. Deebo samuel is still dealing with his hamstring. Good to go from a covid perspective. I apologize yeah. You're right And then big. Ben is been put on the close contact list as well. We saw this with several players last week. Most of them were able to play The only ones that weren't i think where the thursday night game where they had the short turnaround correct Which was brandon euch and jamaal williams but jamaal williams activated as well chris. Mccaffrey is being listed as day-to-day right. Now oh please please be dated and kenyan drake is as well and I wanna say right now. I don't think either place this weekend. So they're starting running backs for the league record. Indy both of them. Yeah well probably not okay. Where they were they were well. You can always pivot to kaelin. Oh you can't give it to cannibalize reverted to the practice squad on monday really. That's good sign for justin jackson. Here's something that the nfl can do this year. We saw the same thing happened with dez bryant. They've allowed couple of transactional moves. Where win you have a new player. You can move them to the practice squad. I believe two times and then activate them for game day where no one else can sign them off your practice squad. So this is just a methodology that will allow them to essentially carry fifty four players. Yeah i wouldn't read too much into a jackson just yet. Yeah although you would think if a player was courtier game plan he might not be on the practice squad. So there is that functional running backs of all players less important to the equation in terms of Yeah he was fine. Yeah he was he was running back four on one of the most pathetic running back weeks. I've ever seen fantasy scoring wise. I don't think i've ever. I can't remember another week where there were too great running backs and then basically the third best running back on the week is just. Did you get a touchdown yours. Mckinnon was a top five back cannibalize the top five back and wing. Gaughman was was up there. Yeah which when. I looked at wayne goal go. You scored this week. Which was enough. Yup so jake luton buddhist putin jake gluten likely to start again in week ten for jacksonville and it went okay but this is the matchup with the packer. So we'll see how that goes. There was a much different match. I imagine they will They will lose. That is that is my prediction woke and then unfortunately albert. Oh broncos tight end yeah tourney. Cll in week. Nine against the falcons disappointing looked really good for a rookie. In the times. That noah fant has missed and even when he's been out there he's he's shown flashes so that that's sad all right so we are going to get into the waivers now before we do that. We we've had some curiosity here. The studio we. We've you know. Sometimes you get in here in the morning you know and it's darker out now. Yeah and i know all. I know mike. You're not a morning person out even an afternoon person. You're more of a while. You're not a person it's at all. No you're revealing my secret snell but you you. It's tougher to wake up. You guys are throwing the coffee back in the morning and we made the joke. Where like us. Probably get some smelling salts. You see him on the sidelines games and we are athletes of our own. We are vocal athletes. So albor has Acquired smelling salts for us and is a pretty big waiver really important show. Big waiver show hyped so you should probably go to youtube dot com slash the fantasy football. Now what was the one review al when you purchase these. You said you saw some reviews. What was the. they said. They couldn't really describe it but the best they could do. Is it's like snorting a lightning bolt. Okay okay which. I have not done okay so i doubt they had either. You guys want to get it. Yeah i snapped it. Premature premature was a three count. Only to really. Oh baby waiver time. Let me in coach. Let me tell you. All of the waivers need is offering. Whoa that was that was entail. Ubiqu- clear oh rather well. That's why don't do this a different experience than i expected. Yeah exactly potpourri. It was weird because at first. It's like there's nothing it didn't hit and then it was like oh the inside of my skulls on fire. Okay i get it. Yeah like a little man was doing jumping. Jacks in my nostrils. I soon none of us have ever done that before. No and mike. You mentioned that that must be pretty effective if it could bring people that are passed out back to life. Yes and i agree have you. Have you tried that al. You bought i have not no Give it a go. Sometimes when you're tired groggy. Inform the listenership on my. Mike's eyeballs are out of his head feel feel like geese. Oh goodness all right. Returning from the by the browns. The bengals the rams the eagles heading to buy falcons cowboys and the jets. Oh it's a sad week. No patrick mahomes kelsey tyreek. All right we're into the waiver. Wire picks of the week at the wide receiver position. So who are your kind of headline guys heading into week nine. Who are you trying to pick up short long long-term Who do you have your eye on. I mean courtesy emeals the name. That's going to come up due to the past several weeks. I mean he. He's technically the wide receiver. Twenty five on the on the season He's had a lot of involvement this past week. Nine for one. Oh five and one and then with news. That maybe mccaffrey mrs another game. You might see some more of those carries in the backfield. Curtis samuel worked out. Yeah i i don't know if this is the order i would go in but i'm looking at our list and saw throw out the names that are that. Jump out to me Jalen rager rookie wide receiver for the philadelphia. Eagles he is. He's back and he is widely available and has a stretch run here of the giants the browns seattle. That's a pretty nice stretch over the next three weeks And then you have the possible. Return of deebo samuel wide receiver for the san francisco. Forty niners really a receiver slash running back. He gets involved christian kirk. I i find myself. So i find it very difficult to really buy into. A kirk has done at least last week. We saw some downfield stuff and then allen lazard for the green bay packers he has been practicing now for a few weeks was on the i r. I think he comes back much sooner than later. Was great in those couple of games It looks like aaron rodgers has his mojo cooking so of those four players. How would you guys. Why value valuing christian kirksey. Yeah i at three three weeks. He's been great and we don't have problems. You know kind of endorsing a second wide receiver for any of the top tier quarterbacks and here's kristen kirk he's definitively the number two. He scored five times three weeks. He's got buffalo seattle on the schedule. They don't have you know a real viable other option. I mean darnel are. Arnold will catch a pass here there fitzgerald here. There kirk is coming into his own and this is two out of three weeks. Where he's had a long touchdown as well. So yeah the the two names that. Stick out to me as the clear cut Best pickups or the ones that i'm most curious about sticking around long-term kirk curtis samuel amazingly these guys have almost identical seasons. They both basically stunk. The entire. i four five games Dealing with little injuries and and then the last three games for each of them less four weeks because both teams have had a bye in that stretch. They've been nominal literally over the last four weeks on a per game basis. Curtis samuel is the water super five x wide receiver to its three games in a row. They're on fire. And those are the two would pick up. But i if i had a tie break between those two i do look at the situation and say christian kirk is the to yep larry fitzgerald isn't going to do something where he's now the top ten wide receiver for fantasy on a week Over christian kirk whereas the three headed monster with robby anderson and dj more. And it's really four headed with the backfield. Because you not throwing the ball to edmonds drake. But you do throw the ball to mccaffrey. So i think put kirk number one especially with the schedule coming up. I don't believe that he is weakened and week out reliable and he's just gonna be awesome the way he's been the last three weeks but i don't believe that about curtis samuel either so jalen rager is not in that list. No he's he's the next tier down. I mean so far jalen rager has been okay. But i don't know first of all he's probably the two i think. Fogel has established himself at least right now as the one. And then you're talking about a downgrade from you know from cuyler. Murray and what he's been slinging around in the pace plate carson wins. Who is service bull. Close your eyes. Yeah that is the prescription for starting carson. Wentz and i agree with everything you're saying. I think that makes i mean kirk has had eight targets two weeks in a row. Kirk has a historical rapport with with cuyler and injuries have derailed him from getting going. But you know that they look to him around the goal line as well. They have designed place for him down. There i would. I'd put kirk up there. I'm not i. I hate to say this. I'm not buying the samuel breakout. I'm not at all. I think that this is you know something where there's just too many males to feed in one week. It's gonna look we've seen dj more week. We've seen robby anderson weeks. We curtis samuel is going to have he's gonna appoint some people. I missed. i misunderstood you. I thought you were saying the deebo samuel. I'm i'm agreeing with you. That curtis samuel is. It feels like kate could could keep going. But if you look at the numbers and really what's happening here. It does feel like a bit of a mirage. Because okay so back to win. It really started happening for him. The past three weeks six for forty eight. Yep like five thirty one okay. But he had a one. He had one rushing attempt and he scored on that one. Okay he turned into a fine day. Four for thirty one okay. Well buddy scored and then he carried the ball. Three times and scored. It's touchdowns this last week against. Kansas city is the first time you saw any real. We're real volume real production. That wasn't just a a todd. Gurley line as i will refer to this year where they just. They do nothing but then they score and it just keeps happening. It could keep happening. I would trade him. I would try to what i would try. And trade. curtis samuel as well if you got jakobi. Meyers has been impressive. I mean when you have twelve catches on fourteen targets and your offense is devoid of pass catching weapons. He's interesting amuses. Twenty four th birthday last night. He's a player. That if if he's the go-to receiver are you considering. Rostering jakobi meyers. No i'm not for two reasons. One is the new york jets. That's who they played into his the baltimore ravens. That's who they're about to play. I don't know that. What cam is really doing offensively. If his number one wide receiver is going to matter most weeks there will be weeks where his number one receivers fantasy relevant. I don't project that to be the case with baltimore and their defense. It's been shutting people. Don't think that jakobi meyers will have ten targets this week. Sure maybe i would. I would take under but it would be eight or nine targets but if those eight or nine targets turn into three for thirty six. I won't be surprised. Mike are you playing jakobi meyers or are you playing nelson angula. Who who the raiders. Play denver I confer a spot start at the wide receiver between those two. I would probably go with galore. Jalen rager over those two. Yes yeah i would play rager over those two. I wanna make the case. For the verge. Kobe myers though he he did nothing. The beginning of the season he was actually in inactive Game day julian edelman goes down. They have injuries. Throughout the entire team. jakobi meyers comes. Back comes back to an eighty percent snap share six targets the next week against buffalo ninety eight percent of the of the snaps ten targets ninety nine percent of the snaps fourteen targets. He is he has become the de facto number one. It may not last the whole season. But i mean if you listen you watch the game. You heard the the blurb. They hope the patriots hope it's not season ending for julian. That's not a ringing endorsement for a an old wide receiver who just had knee surgery. So i think jakobi meyers is worth pick up. Maybe maybe jason's right. You don't wanna play against baltimore but houston arizona. The chargers at so after that you had a really nice stretch here. Which is what is the timeline on nikiel harry. Do we have any expectation there because obviously ask you if the keel. Harry is healthy. Do you have any expectations for nikiel harry not. I don't have expectation for to kill harry to be relevant. But i do think that. Kill harry coming back. Changes whether or not jakobi meyers getting ten targets game. If you've got another big bodied wide receiver that can throw the ball to. That's all. I'm saying not that not. I want to pick up harry but that that could be part of what's going on known to kill harry no Doing them now. Julian edelman is gone. So some of this is going to stick but i think we should talk a little bit more in depth about the personality brought up. As would you play this person. Which isn't nelson galore. Nelson agholor is who. I should have taken for my taking it up to one hundred i said him or rugs is going to get a touchdown picked. I picked poorly But he's he's been really solid now. He's not getting the targets that you really love. But what targets. He's getting are valuable. He's just been a touchdown machine. And i know you can't really rely on touchdowns denver. Kansas city atlanta the jets. The next month is pretty nice schedule. And he seems like he's been the number one for dare car. Are you guys interested in plan. Laura are you open to that. Would you bid on him. No i wouldn't i. I'm picking up as a spot star but nelson adler to me is not a player that i'm burning any priority on tuesday. I'm not putting any fab. Maybe i'll put a zero in on him but to me. He feels like a player friday. I missed out on all my targets throughout the week. And then i go okay. Fine nelson laura. I'll pick you up. I'll throw you in the roster because no one else wants to play you. I agree with that allen. Lazard should be back in week nine if not week nine. It'll be Next week indiapol- indianapolis and chicago or are the two after this week. Jacksonville are you interested in the kind of just throwing them on the bench i. It's tough because if he was active this week. The matchup is really good against jacksonville. When we've seen allen lazard on the field he's he's been good. He's been out there three games. He had three fantasy relevant performances. And obviously we know with what aaron rodgers is doing right now. he could support to receiver. So i am interested in allen lazard he would be much higher up my list if i knew he was gonna be active this week if if if that was the case i would rather pick him up and play him over nelson. Agla my my top three then. Our kirk I'll go ray gore next and then jakobi meyers so those would be my top three. You have to go be myers ahead of deebo Know if depots out there. I guess i'm considering him roster by most people but it would be You know probably kirk depot rager myers. Yeah all right. What about you guys. I would go erc. And then i would still go. Curtis samuel second. If he's out there he's just been doing too much to ignore even though it hasn't been volume based and then jailer incur. Curtis samuel is widely available. So he's rostered and thirty percent of yahoo leagues he. He has the potential of like just a scoop and trait. We talk about. If i if i have curtis samuel on the look to trade him you might be able to get him off the waiver wire and then and dangle him in front of the rest of your your league say you dummies. You should've picked him up. But i'm willing to trade him so i think that's a possibility. My top three. Though i would go. Yeah i suppose we'll put kirk at the top. Just hits and he. He freaks me out a little bit. But kirk rager. Diva would be my top three guys all right before we get to the running back position. Wanna think a new sponsor today. Hello touchy hello.

Football is brought to you by head and shoulders available at walmart this year. we're doing a new segment. Every thursday we're going to be picking are up to one hundred players of the week this week a week to forget andy robby anderson enters ended up as the wide receiver. Thirty six he's right in the middle of a hitter. Thirty six nine catches nine receptions for sixty three yards i had nelson agholor. Who had a great bomb touchdown. That's not what i have in my pen. The pen ink over here. Say henry ruggs. Oh yeah i mean well. When you're looking at rugs jason's going to try to take credit. I was like he takes his credit to one hundred. Speaking of taking credit i had darnell mooney from the chicago. Bears who had eleven targets against the tennessee. Titans let's take him up to one hundred five for forty three suits like a tree in forest situation with nick. Foles quarterback like if this this is a process seems very correct. Maybe your position involved. Nick foles look. Maybe i over estimated overestimated the value of nichols. But hey take your hair up to one hundred with head and shoulders available at walmart. Pick yours today. check out this thursday's episode to hear up to one hundred picks of the week all right. Let's talk about the ever difficult running back position for the waiver. Wire this week In that category of probably rostered but worth checking remember. Mike davis Please remember mac davis. He could be back to a fulltime role. Yeah he was picked up everywhere played everywhere but going into this last week. I know leagues where you know. Chris mccaffrey was they had to make a rostrum of and mike davis went to waiver. So check your waivers. Even if you think. He's rostered because if he's out there he's the guy to pick. And then zack. Moss is another player. That might be rostered. Probably roster depending on your platform fifty three percent and espn league's seventy three percent in yahoo leagues but as arizona coming up and got into the end zone again. This past week had scored. I believe twice the week before It wasn't a you know. Impressive stat line. But he did take fifty six percent of the snaps compared to singletary's forty five percent. So he is a touchdown. Shot for your for your roster. Yup i don't think you're going to get what you want. Without a touchdown with him agreed. Alright main waiver wire pickups for this. You know it's gonna come down to And i and i see this list that we've compiled in. I see a missing name Swale bring him up as well. But you're looking at situations you know. Players are dealing with injury in. Can you take advantage of a start here or there One of them to me is joshua kelley if justin jackson's not back on the field Joshua kelley going to get a lot of snaps. And so you're gonna have an opportunity there. He had fifty four percent snaps this past week. You know some people bring up campbell is. He's back on the practice squad. They would call him back up. I'm sure if justin jackson wasn't available if i depict between balaj and kelly though i would still probably go joshua kelley. What's tough about making the decision between the two of them is it feels like the the should be joshua kelley but caleb lage off. The street was the one who received far more opportunities. He had fifteen carries and three targets compared to joshua kelley nine carries and five targets. So are are you really that sure you when sunday shows up if they say jackson is out still out you would go joshua kelley. I'll get jason's starts to but i have. I'm not excited about any of them. I'll be honest. Because i think josh justin jackson tried to come back into this game. You're going to deal with limited practices all week for him. And then you're going to be thinking about all three of these players against miami's defense which is number one in terms of like giving up few cement appoint you that last week. They did have Involved pope in the running back committee as well. He had a concussion so right he could be the one. That's what i think. Balaj might not be a guaranteed call up. I agree with you completely that he might not be. I think it's almost more based on tremaine. pope If i had to pick one of these guys between balaj kelly. I still lean balaj just because what i've seen from kelley has been bet like. Yeah he doesn't look how he's going to get opportunity. And i'm not going to start him because i don't think he can do anything with his opportunity. He hasn't done it after those first two weeks. He's looked really bad. So i you know been there done that type of thing you at least have upside and hope and optimism with kalem balaj based on him looking better running ahead of joshua kelley last week but it is super risky. There is absolutely no guarantee that kalem lodge is even active for the game that being said if he is who back to back revenge gave up. Miami doesn't even he doesn't stand rosters long enough to neither of vin. I let me let me bring up the name. Though that i'm talking about my number one right now. I pick up. Jd mckissic year and a half. He's the name. I was going to bring up next. I was. I was gonna bring up. But he's one. I say that because the number two situation you know everybody wants to make apologies for him. Everybody wants to talk about how great the schedule is for him. But nobody wants to carry that to its end. And we're talking about jonathan taylor and we're talking about jordan wilkins. If the schedule that. Everybody loves for. Jonathan taylor is so incredibly. Great the player that frank reich trust in the backfield is named jordan wilkins. It's not jonathan taylor. Jonathan taylor for the second consecutive week had fewer opportunities in the backfield and jordan wilkins. He also fumbled. Which turned into a defensive touchdown and then he rivers should have had them pretty much. The tackle didn't even see the field again after that. There has been a decline in confidence with jonathan taylor in the offense. And if you put that together with the confidence jordan. Wilkins the production for jordan wilkins in the previous game. I'm telling you there's no reason for jordan wilkins. Not to be rostered in the exact same amount of situations you'd roster jonathan taylor problem and this is one of those things that if you see through it. You look at the schedule jordan. Wilkins could be predominant back for indianapolis recipes. And so i don't. I don't know why you wouldn't add them to the roster. Yeah yeah i i i mean i i just don't see the same way. I don't think it's just a name thing. I think it's a talent thing. I think you've seen that last week with the limited work with the fumble where he didn't back in you know. Jonathan taylor had a better fantasy week jordan wilkins. because you're touchdown scored a touchdown. I'm just saying you watch the beginning of the game and it was all jonathan taylor. And then he fumbled any barely got in the game. That's not true. It wasn't all jonathan taylor who was first step yes. Jonathan taylor was first up. That doesn't make it all jonathan taylor. He were opportunities and the week before. Jordan wilkins was twenty four. Eighty nine with touchdown so he was the number six running back way. He will happen that week. what happened. That week was what you brought up with. Philip rivers saying that he was nicked up and then they came out afterwards instead of happened. They didn't know about until after the game. i mean. I hope that you grabbed jonathan or jordan wilkins in our league. That's what i hope. Well i just think the jordan wilkins has if you make a bunch of compelling cases for the this schedule for indianapolis and jordan wilkins receives more carries. Jonathan taylor does. It seems very much a bias towards jonathan taylor's hype than it does opportunity. Here's the more time than the more time you to spend arguing. Jonathan taylor is the more time i get to sit over here and pretend there's not clyde edwards alert problem. Yeah so good you. Yeah that's true. Well i mean jordan. Wilkins the one. That is trusted. His game logs. If you look at them he is the running back. Forty six fifty one. Seventy one twenty three six. He had a an and forty five arguer. It's such a bad argument. You're seeing are worse than ever. Because he wasn't. The what's happened is a loss of trust in taylor over the last two weeks everybody can see it in the performance on the field taking his early game logs when he wasn't given any opportunities at all. Look this is this is a change. It's a transformation in what's happening. Yeah sorry i send aside more. With andy taylor is a problem. What would you to bid on jordan wilkinson. I thought jordan wilkins has the potential to be a spot. Start the rest of the season. I'd rather have him than dealing with goeman freeman. I'd rather have in dealing with balaj. kelly. I'd rather have them than dealing with harris birket. So what would you bid on them. I it depends on your team like three. Maybe that where you are If i need a running back i would bid more. I mean ten bucks. You know something like that. Okay but back to jd mckissic. 'cause he of this list jd. Mckissic is the is my number one player. I wanna grab off this. I agree with that because of everybody else has a situation where you can argue against them. You can't argue against jd mckissic. He has the passing down back for washington. He ran the most routes of any running back in week. Nine that turned into fourteen targets. Like what happened. Why did it turn into fourteen targets. Alex smith alex smith is the quarterback for washington. He will be the the quarterback for washington moving forward because kyle ellen dislocated his ankle and he is out for the season. Antonio gibson is the first and second down running back for this team antonio gibson his only touched the ball once on third down which is an absolute travesty and something. I don't have time to rant about in this curse juncture but jd. mckissic will be involved. He'll get a couple of carries here and there but he in a league. I think that he will be trustworthy for the remainder of the season. Yeah i agree. He would be my number one running back and i think that there's almost everybody this week when you look at it. It's all injury related. It's okay. Gus edwards gonna is mark ingram back and they're short term exact me short-term injuries like duke johnson houston. He would be a great pickup. He would be great. David johnson has a concussion. You have no idea if he's going to be back. And that's exactly why i brought jordan wilkins up to begin with is because his situations not surrounding injury its surrounding snaps and opportunities and you know the truth is name hines involved in that offense to you. Know he's getting all the third downs Dj dallas the clock is is there for dj scott to be ticking though and homer look. It was the exact same thing this past week. He got into the end zone but he was seven for thirty one. He's not been efficient. And they transitioned to homer over the back half of the game more snaps for homer. It's betting on injuries. I'm not excited about any of those players. That same situation for ryan all in chicago he would take over for david. Montgomery dave montgomery left the game with a concussion. You don't know if montgomery will clear the concussion protocol before sunday. So but he might but but he would be. I mean there's there's you know torri cohen has gone. I if montgomery's not there ryan norwood of line is it is but it's against minnesota and you saw rochelle. Patterson though orion no i at situation. I think i would go rhino. We saw four targets for him in very limited work. Yeah i i would as well but obviously if you're going to play the will player come back from a concussion game. It's a tough game to play. I would lean towards duke. Johnson player we know would be more involved is better the offense as clicking right now. y- but that would be behind. Jd mckissic all right It's probably worth bringing up Salvin ahmed from miami because he led the team in snaps last week. It seems like the next gaskin up is salvador. Matty's the smaller back if you listened and watched this game. This entire offense is predicated on something that jordan. Howard can't do that. It's not all they hate jordan howard. It's just that his skill set does not fit what the offense needs to do which is to get some of these running backs out on the edge. Just not jordan howard is capable of and so ahmed is is probably favourite for snaps in and fantasy production this week against the chargers and we know gas is going to be out so if you watch that game it seemed like there was even just mid game kind of a shift where they started with more jordan howard and then they. They switched over and Ahmed got more and more involved. I i would expect if if matt brita is out this week which is very very realistic. His hamstring issue. I think makes sense to be a two week injury. If if he's out. Ahmed would be the one i would i. I agree with you guys. But i will say deandra washington. He can cause a problem with that. They traded for him. Deandre washington has a complete skill set. he's not necessarily a trusted three down runner but he can run and he has He has good enough hands to be a third down running back. So it's possible that ahmed was just a one week thing absolutely and it's also possible that either one of those guys really do have the lion share of the work that when they get on the goal line. It's still georgia. Our in which case what it sounds like between brita. Howard ahmed deondraye washington is just stay with situation. Best to avoid agreed agreed. So do we wanna do the top. Pick there again at the running back position. I mean the kiss is the number one for all three of us. It's jd mckissic for me. An injury monitoring or yes and if you have to take your if you gotta take your shots here are right. I think i would put duke johnson at number two Civic the concussion you you don't know if someone's gonna come back but i'm just trying to weigh what their value would be. If the injury held up and david. Johnson had to miss. Like if david johnson has to miss and david montgomery has to mess. I want do. Johnson one hundred one hundred times compared to ryan all so. He would be the second one. I would prioritize. Have you guys heard any in for more information about mark. Ingram baltimore ravens alleged. Starting running back missed a couple of weeks now with a foot injury. We still don't know if he's going to be back no i. I haven't heard anything the timeline with say he could be back this week and could mess is one of those very nebulous situation edwards involved in this. We don't he should be picked up because you don't know who's going to be starting at. Yeah i mean he's involved in a heavy runoff. It's he wasn't very good. This last week. the goal line back. Though i don't i don't know that that's guaranty. They've used you know they they've used. Jk dobbins down there before early in the year. Three three straight games with a rushing touchdown and that's helpful but you think it's a guarantee that if they get there that it's always going to be edwards Not always but i'd say eighty plus percent of the chance is going to go to edwards or lamar. Yeah by the way the damian harris chest injury in the second half could have implications on whether you take shot with birkhead. I mean sony could be back. Unfortunately if sony is not back and damien mrs time than yes you are correct rex. Burkhead should be picked up. Even the matchup is not great against baltimore. But rex burkhead. He's do it all running back and they trust them around the goaling all right Tight end options this week. Who are your favorite waiver wire. Pickups if you are you're looking towards the tight end position so the the favorite picks of the week are the two guys we highlighted last week. That if you're tight end position is really hurting. You need to pick these one of these two guys up. Eat the bench spot for a week. Off hooper me. You might have even been able to get into your. I r so he didn't have to use an active bench. Spot dallas goedert from the philadelphia eagles. And austin hooper from the cleveland browns. There those are my two clearcut top options than between the two of them. I throw but i probably prefer hooper slightly just because we have seen we we have actual evidence of the target share rising each and every week. That austin hooper Was involved and now he's back from his appendicitis and you compound that with the loss of odell beckham and yeah. Hooper has an arrow pointing up. I would play him ahead of god but those are the two clear pickups if they're available on your leagues if not jimmy. Grandpa is you know. It's still someone that you can. He's on the rock and share. He's just waiting for you to pick them up. We're watching the game. And andy keeps point now. How just throwing the ball all game. It was. It was little receptions for jimmy graham. He's got a divisional game coming up. I think he's fine. Okay yeah. I have to decide between jared cook and jimmy graham to start this week who that's fun and it seems like a tough call with michael thomas coming back and emmanuel sanders back and jimmy graham getting too much work so the only other name i personally would throw out would be eric ebron. Yes yeah yeh vance mcdonald went on the cova. Dr list so he might be a little bit more alone in cincinnati. This week jacksonville. Next week eric. Ebron is a very good pickup. All right some job candidates though. If you're making these decisions for your waiver wire let me bring up. Some names Dj more no. I'm not dropping. Dj more hollywood brown. Yeah i would be willing. You can drop them yet. Love bell yes. What about roggio. no. Yeah i would not. I don't think i'm dropping him okay. It's it's been terrible thus far But he's of the past two weeks where he's he has done nothing. He was still the starting running back. He got benched for fumbling and then got game scripted out. I i understand that means that ronald jones is not a perfect fantasy player that he has all these variables surrounding in that he can just harry. Houdini himself right out of the game. But i would still hold onto him. This the schedule opens up a little bit here. And and the buccaneers offense is good about two. It's about to explode well. Let's just say he had three times the amount of carey's as lynyrd for net and his last game perfect three to one man three two one all right defensive streaming options the saints. Take on san francisco and nick mullins. That looks like a home. Run the eagles take on the giants after the bye. Week which Looks like a homerun. Daniel jones is good for some Defensive scoring opportunities outside of that the you know the giants defense has been better than expected. You can play them against philli. That's a little more risky. I probably wouldn't what else you got the vikings against chicago. Would you actually play them. I mean they're thirty first against the pass. I would be scary. I'd be willing to. I'd prefer to grab the saints of the eagles though. Yeah i agree with that. The the one thing that you know about most chicago bears games. Is that their low scoring and nick. Foles throw picks. So i i think you can get away with that also Do want to highlight this point. It was brought up by my esteemed colleague jason more. I don't know why he refuses to bring it up on the show. The miami dolphins d. s. t. which the miami dolphins are defense is legit. It's pretty good. Here's what's coming up for them. The chargers the denver broncos and the new york jets followed by the cincinnati bengals. You have i mean maybe you don't like the match up against the chargers that's fine but denver jets cincinnati. Those are three strong. Match-ups coming up here for for defense all right. Let's talk quarterbacks. Full stream ahead. I before we give our streaming quarterback options. I want to just throw name out there. Because i know it's not one of the three we've picked and just ask you recipes and take on because i think people have different opinions They were impressed this past week. I it's to do with two recipes. I don't know if you can declare anything rest of season. Just yet to was very impressive against arizona. He did not have the really comfortable game script that he had his first week where he only had twelve completions but he made some place He he he made some plays in the running game as well so he is. He's interesting but he's not into the. He would only stream so far in a perfect situation. Which against the chargers is it. There's not a lot of more. Perfect of johnson against the chargers. Right now so it'll it'll be very interesting. That being said. I think he played as well as i could have hoped for last week against the cardinals He kept scoring and he was. You know he was okay for fantasy. He didn't have a bad game. He seventeen yeah but he certainly didn't help you win your week. I i actually wanted to bring up one other name That that i know is not in our three but baker mayfield. Yes i was really close between going with him or not against houston this week. Baker i i know it's so weird. But when odell beckham went down and all of a sudden he could just throw to whoever was open he lit up then had the weather game than the by. So i'm going to. I'm keeping a close eye on baker this week at houston. I think if you you know if you're a two quarterback league or you know you're scraping the bottom of the barrel. Check this out jake. Luton argument right now for baker mayfield. Even guys like jake luton right off. The bench can come in and make an impact against houston. Yeah i do worry about him. Chubb coming back. The dynamics of this offense even bakers good games are kinda mediocre games. That was widened. Go with them was. I could see this game script being a run heavy team. But certainly going to keep my eyes on all right streaming quarterbacks this week i'm going to go with carson wentz look cover your eyes let it happen. Is the quarterback twelve on the year. He's got razorback he's got. He's got the giants this week and their bottom third against fantasy quarterbacks. It'll be okay if you need to wear a blindfold go ahead We said this was gonna happen. Even after the bad performance last week said we come back and probably recommend him as a streamer because he's sitting there on waiver wires maybe as retribution for last week. But i'm gonna go winced. When i saw jason's i know and he put me on blast last week about this player. I was shocked. Well this is for all those broncos fans out there. I'm going with drew. Lock he i i. I've said it. He he hasn't looked good in the beginning of these games but he's eating up. I mean he's had two great matchups in a row. Is that two top ten fantasy finishes at the end of the day. You can't ask for much more than that. And he's got a third great matchup. Coming up against the raiders. He's starting to get going with jury duty at least this last week so i think you can stream him. I don't he certainly not into the category of every week starter. But in a match up against the raiders. You could plug them in speaking of matchup fellas. Could i interest you in playing a defense that is on pace to give up the most passing yards ever by over one thousand passing yards holy freak and craft seattle going on up there. So jared garf- ginga frey against the seattle seahawks. I think they could get done too big week for you know. Every every mahomes manager can't play him so you're scaring the waiver wire. You're looking for an opportunity to fill in that gap garf- is he's going to be my option in that situation and i'm hoping for the best. It hasn't been a great year but coming out of the by sean. Mcvay getting the offense rolling against the worst defense in history. I'm hopeful if you're just grabbing a quarterback to play could end getting two hundred and fifty and two which is more than capable from. Jared goff this week it just grabbing that off the wire is that's a win. Yeah goff would easily be my first choice. If all of these guys are on the waivers seattle has just the there often. So good in their defense is so bad and it's the light for fantasy. it's amazing. That team is six into in real life. How are you going to give up on pace for more than a thousand yards more than any team in the history given up through the air. You're six thousand two atop russell wilson. Yeah yeah and it's you russell scoring as often as he does. This defense has to get on the field a lot and then they tried to get back on the field real quick but we wanna think pristine auction for sporting the show today a keenan allen signed under armor clete seventy three dollars yesterday at pristine auction dot com and you can check out.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT #533: CHRISTIAN KIRK

"Hey in your oldest into the about last night podcast Bitch Avenue he would. Your should the Dow last night on Fine Moi Adam Grey. A bit is a video. Okay do you look at just hd fucking fire? 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. Like you got the headphones. Yeah I'm used to that. I'm used to that quality. You're just going off the speakers off the MAC book. Yeah Yeah what a game by the way call of duty. Fuck Dude my brother. He's Younger and he Yeah I've actually about your age You just turn. What forty-five no you're fucking joking. You look like you're twenty three years younger than me. How do I look younger than you? That's crazy I wash my face a lot. I guess that's I know right now. 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. What is like to sit down and play a couple rounds of me? Play Halo Call of duty to that shit is intense and the people that are really good are scary. Lay you look at them after. And you're like a fucking take a walk around the block or something man because like you just took down. Eighty strangers. Didn't even blink remorse for it either. No remorse what are you playing like on twitch? Yeah do good for you man. I've been twisting away I've been grinding is. Was that one of the first things you went to once this all hit. And you're like oh I guess I guess work we so we met at the Jordan Palmer. Cuba camp. Yes Which I was trying to play cool because it was like you know that's for me was so could even be at but this is like just a regular sits for you guys just with the best of the best. Qb's receivers like your pre I don't know how many times have you gone to this Pre-workout situation before the season started was at your first time there now That was my second time. I went down I didn't go down for extended periods of time last year but I of Colin Josh. Both like man. You gotta stay in the House with us like you gotta train with us and I'm staying at a houseful. Qb'S I can get all the kids that I wanNA get installed like. Yeah I'm GonNa take advantage of that in so yeah that was my first time Stand down there in send committee and it was. It was amazing when you even staying in the House with. Qb's as it just like football's always on the mind to a like you. I gotta go take a shit. And he's like oh. 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. Khan offense coordinator time McCoy receiver coach. 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.

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.

Use that Promo Code. podcast one at bed online DOT AG. He's Joe Dolan at F G underscore Dolan on twitter on Ross Tucker at Ross Tucker. NFL All right Joe. Let's start episode number number two with the Vikings at the chargers curious to get your thoughts on this one. We'll start with the VIKES. Well I'll Dalvin Alvin. Cook played them last week. He came through for you. And that's what's important That's what we wanted to see. It wasn't a huge game and as we predicted they were gonNA. They blew out the lines. Were able to give Alexander Madison a little more run in the second half. Don't know if that's going to be possible but I think you can be very confident in Dalvin Cook Right now He said he got through the game. Healthy fire hire him back up as a as a running back one. The chargers are tougher match up though for the quarterback here kirk cousins probably more of a QB QB to the chargers have been have an overall. Pretty Damn good defense Against quarterbacks they I mean they really not we'll get into the Jaguars but they got after Garmin she last week Not a great matchup for Kirk cousins going out to the West Coast Stefan digs. You have to play as a wide receiver to For sure Unfortunately unfortunately we still don't really know about Adam feeling. Apparently he's getting closer. If you play Adam feeling this week I mean good luck. What could happen with the hamstring? I I consider him more of a wide receiver three but this is one of those narrow fantasy teams. Oh by the way kyle. Rudolph was a big disappointment last week. Catching two passes. I don't feel great about him. He's a guy you plug in there. And really hope he scores a touchdown other than that. I mean it's it's really it's cousins as a QB to you have to play digs. You have to play Cook. We gotta see the about feeling. This is a good vikings team that overall it's been kind of a disappointment for fantasy with the exception of cook and cousins issue. What about the other side? The chargers your guy man. He's unbelievable they figured out how to use these guys up both of them. If you have both Melvin Gordon Austin color you have have to play both of them I mean they they just do different things. I mean going for over. Two hundred yards from scrimmage on nine touches is ridiculous. That's tecmo Bo. Jackson isn't stuff. It's it's absurd what he did last week. A four for one. Twelve and a touchdown receiving eight for one zero one rushing. Excuse me at two hundred and thirteen yards on twelve touches. which severely damaged the accomplishment? But Melvin Gordon got in the end zone. He caught five passes. It was good to see Mike Williams get in the end zone so in In in week number fourteen we had two receivers who were on pace for over one thousand receiving yards who had not scored a touchdown that has never happened by the way in NFL. History History What somebody who had over one thousand receiving yards without a receiving touchdown both of them scored a receiving touchdown in week? Fourteen that being Mike Williams and Robert Woods. What's so both of those guys? Got Me endzone. Good to see that. I actually like Mike Williams because he can get down the field and I don't think these Viking corners can run so I liked like him as a high volatility wide receiver. Three I think you roll with Keenan Allen Philip Rivers Unfortunately that was his best fantasy game of the year and it was a great game game for him but I'm not yet trusted him for fantasy against Minnesota. I think this is a team that has he played last week. Against Jaguars team that I feel like has quit. So I like he's receivers Williams as a wide receiver three Allen as a wide receiver to and I obviously love Hunter Henry as a top six type of tight end and I love his running backs. But what unfortunately Philip rivers. I just I don't I don't trust him enough to play him in in this spot. Okay what about you mentioned earlier. It's the Jaguars at the raiders. The Jaguars have quit. They have utterly quit on defense. Now I don't know if the raiders can take advantage of back because they don't have a whole lot offensively the the key thing to keep in mind here is what is going on in the reiter backfield Josh Jacobs. Obviously he had been playing through the pain. He just couldn't do with that shoulder last week because he can't go. I mean De'andre Washington. who was the lead back for Oakland? This is the matchup we were just talking about. What also neck or did yeah? I mean this is a this is a defense that just gave up. Nearly three hundred yards from scrimmage matter of fact it might have been over three hundred yards from scrimmage to the charger running backs last week it was over three hundred yards. So De'andre Washington Jalen Rashard. I prefer Washington. I think you can use Rashard NPR. I mean this is the matchup running backs and if Josh Jacobs goes I kind of have to suck it up and play them. Because it's an amazing matchup Tiro Williams. I would love to say. Fire him up with confidence dependence but he is clearly not one hundred percent as he's playing through that foot sprain He is low end wide receiver three who has complete goose egg potential. But I do really liked the spot for one guy here for Oakland. Darren Waller Foster Moreau is out for the season after his knee injury. Backup tight end. Darren Waller has started to come alive yet. Six hundred seventy three on six targets last week against the titans. I think this could be a potentially huge game with ten plus targets for Darren Waller I love him for. DFS This week browns at the cardinals and we found out about Oh BJ's sports hernia late in the week last week. Joe You kept asking that question question as a guy that played my senior year of college with a sports hernia. I can tell you. That's pretty painful and I would imagine. It's even tougher for a skilled Gilgal than it was for me as alignment one thing. I do WANNA touch on. Ross before we get into that We have to watch the Jaguars status. Dj Char- who has a Who has his foot in a boot If he doesn't go. I actually Kinda liked Chris. Conley as a low end sleeper for Jacksonville at wide receiver. If you're daring to trust Minzhu so I do you WanNa bring that up but getting back to the browns well. I'm eliminated in one of my longest term leagues because Baker Mayfield Soiled the bed and odal Beckham soiled the bed in a glorious matchup against Cincinnati. I don't know what it is. Ross at least there's some level of explanation Odell Odell Beckham with the Sports Hernia. Why doesn't why he hasn't taken over a game this year as Jay Glazer alluded to maybe l.? Just wants out of Cleveland and I. I don't know what's going on here but there is no I mean it's a great matchup against Arizona but after it was a great match Cincinnati too so I don't know how you entrust Odell Beckham as anything more than a wide receiver. Three at this point Baker Mayfield. I'd prefer to sit them down. Nick Saban Kareem Hunt Jarvis. Landry play 'em all chop chop and hunt Chubb is a low end. Rb One hunt as a mid range rb to you can put both of those guys played over sixty percents of the snaps last week. You can play both of them. Jarvis Harvest Landry is in your lineup against this cardinal defense that hemorrhages points out of the slot and then there was one guy who's asleep David and joking came off. The I R didn't play forty percents of the snaps had like a bizarre drop fumble thing. I'm not really sure what what you would call it. But it's the cardinal cardinal matchup and if you WANNA take a shot on and Joko he's GonNa be popular for. DFS It is that matchup everybody looks to exploit but Mayfield and Beckham mm-hmm huge downgrades for me I cannot trust Mayfield Beckham's upside you might thanks to high but if you want to bench him I don't have a problem with it either. Just freaking terrible so far. What about for the cardinals? What did you see from them against the steelers absolutely nothing? If you really honest I thought they were terrible. Last week. now the browns. I mean I guess you can say they've Kinda quit too but the bengals didn't produce a whole lot tough match-up for Christian Kirk against these corners up a lot of garbage time production for Christian Kirk last week. He's a wide receiver. Three keep Larry Fitzgerald on your bench and this is where we're at David. Johnson scored last week and it was a meaningless fantasy touchdown like at this point. I would have rather Kenyan drake at that opportunity opportunity because Kenyan drake is the only running back I can really consider here. It's kind of Christian Kirksey Kenyan drake and both of them like Drake's an rb three and I kirk wide receiver three and there's too many other options for me to consider Kyla Murray. This is this might be the worst fantasy team in all a fantasy football right now. Wow how you can't you can't play. Fits Murray's run into a tough schedule here recently. It's it's it's really bad I mean who do you trust here. I mean I guess Christian Kirk but not even that man. It's it's really tough right. Rams are at the cowboys what has gotten into that Los Angeles Rams Joe well the unfortunate the fortunate thing here for the rams is that they look good offensively the unfortunate thing for us is they're doing it in a way that we have not seen them they're playing heavy two tight end sets. I know you're a big Johnny Fan. Ross well Johnny month played over seventy percent. The snaps last week against Seattle Tyler higby played virtually every snap against Seattle brandin cooks and Cooper Cup. Each played under forty forty percents of the snaps couples under thirty percent. Now I don't know if that was specific to Seattle you know you WANNA keep them in base. I'm not sure what it was but but it has been working for them and I wouldn't be surprised to see higby It we'll see about Gerald Everett. I wouldn't be surprised to see this. Continue now the one one major beneficiary has been todd Gurley. He is the Guy Right now. He's been up and over twenty touches in like I think four straight games he actually produced as a receiver over last week against Seattle. Four for thirty four it was kind of a lower case It was a lower case. Todd Gurley from twenty eighteen type of Game twenty-seven touches touches. Excuse me He's been over twenty touches and three of his last four games but he's been a major beneficiary. I think they decided. Sean McVeigh decided these last couple of weeks. We need to unlock the run game. If we're going to unlock the past game and it's kind of worked out Obviously we saw jared goff over four hundred yards against Arizona. He goes for two ninety. I be three and two touchdowns against Seattle so todd Gurley is back on the RB one radar. All of a sudden Robert Woods has been unlocked the last couple of weeks. I mentioned him earlier that he scored his first receiving touchdown of the year while he has been heavily involved. He's had at least nine targets and six catches in four consecutive games. He he is a wide receiver. One at this point because Dallas can't stop anybody their defense has been abominable. I think you still have to play Cooper Cup. Even though he was only out there for thirty percent of the snaps he caught all four of his targets scored a touchdown and actually nearly threw a touchdown pass. So they're still involving him. The one guy who I think is utterly not just Benjamin I think is droppable is brandin cooks and the reason is he was held catch lists in that game against Seattle. He has not gone over ten fantasy points in. Apr Dr Since Week. Four in a game. That the rams scored forty points. There's a chance he catches a long touchdown every week but right now you're essentially gambling. The guy is. The guy has been useless for fantasy. He has four catches over his last four games. While that's that's crazy all right. What about on the other side the conundrum that is the Dallas cowboys well Dallas and their fans will tell you this? I just don't think they're a well coached team And it's been consistent. It's been consistent in the Dak Prescott era whether you want to blame it on Prescott but it was happening at the end of the Tony. Romo era too when things don't go perfectly for the cowboys you know you get an early injury. Maybe a bad call goes against you or you know the defense gives it's up a big play and they're down seven nothing they just collapse. They can't adjust and and at some point that's on Jason Garrett and it's really hurt Dak Prescott. There was that there was that kind of fleeting. Hey he should be in the. MVP discussion will. That's dead now. I mean they've lost three consecutive games and Prescott has not played well particularly well in any of them He actually threw for three thirty four last week but I think like midway through the third quarter he had like sixty are passing. Thanks so he threw for like two hundred and fifty yards in the final quarter of that game. The rams defense did a phenomenal job on Russell Wilson last week I I do not really trust Dak Prescott in this spot now. Is it home. It's better that he is at home. He's always been better at home he's kind of a low end. QB One. When he was a slam? I am dunk. Top Five quarterback just about a month ago so DAK Prescott is a guy Who I am Probably a little bit down on just because of the recent trend of play away and the coaching trend. Quite frankly Dallas you. Play Ezekiel Elliott. Because he's GonNa get nearly a hundred percent of the snaps you have to play Amari Cooper though he's GonNa see Jalen Ramsey so there's is going to be that bad matchup element to this and Cooper has struggled in bad match ups. And you have to play Michael Gallup. I guess you could take a shot on Randall. COBB but I consider Prescott. I got a low end. quarterback one Zeke high rb one. I consider cooper wide receiver to Gallup wide receiver. Three this week the cowboys. Recent trend of play having lost four of their last five games is not something. I'm exactly inspired by. Let's get to another Sunday afternoon. Game name the Falcons at the forty niners. Oh Allama days the kiosks. Everybody's lineup. No I know Calvin Ridley's out for the season but the guy I'd pivot to is Russell Gauge who had the big game on Thanksgiving If you WANNA play one of these guys unfortunately it's on the road against San Francisco and I think San Francisco I think Kyle Shanahan the boys while they played well. Offensively are going to be pissed off about what happened to their defense. It's a bad a spot for for Atlanta across the board and I got I got say he hasn't been awful like I mean. He hasn't been David Johnson levels of awful awful. Julio Jones is not helping your fantasy team right now in a big way I mean five for sixty six five hundred sixty eight six for ninety one three. For seventy nine all touchdown touchdown list in his last four games that somebody you've got to play. But he I I mean it's not somebody who's carrying your fantasy teams not killing you. But he's not carrying you. He hasn't skorts since week. Three now. Maybe peppered with targets and with Richard Sherman. Being banged up. Matchup is a little bit easier. You have to play them. The holyoke has been a big disappointment of fantasy fantasy this season. He has over one hundred yards just one of his last six games and we have to grade will WANNA curve Just one of his last six and then just two of his last nine for Julio Jones's CBS. Just four overall this season so it's a tough spot for him. Really bad spot for for devante Freeman the other great matchup against Carolina last week but I consider him more of a low end. Rb To this week Matt Ryan is going to be in the QB. two-tier I'll be completely frank. Ross Me Austin Hooper. I think you can take a shot on. San Francisco has really struggled against tight. End Since Quan Alexander went out. They gave up three touchdowns to saint tight ends last week to jared cook and then when he went out Josh Josh L.. Scored one off hooper this week but this is a bad match for Atlanta. I'd be really worried for Matt Ryan and company given how pissed off the forty nine or defense is going to be about what happened to them last week. Well what about on the other side. The niners offensively. Well they gave the backfield are`most last week. Both Matt Brita. And Kevin Coleman played under twenty percent of the snaps. I understand. It's a Tevin Coleman revenge game but when you look at his numbers recently. I don't know how you can justify playing. Kevin Coleman Holman other than the fact that it's seven Coleman revenge. Game Tevin. Coleman has not topped forty rushing yards since week number eight so it's been really bad for him the only time he's gone over ten fantasy points in the last month was when he scored a rushing touchdown against Green Bay. Tevin Coleman's the guy. Here's the odd man out in the Backfield for me. I consider MOSTER RB to. Maybe you can flex Max Matt Brita. But I'm eliminating Coleman from all of my lineup's obviously you played George Kendall who made a beast play at the end of that game against New Orleans and An- against this secondary a desmond. True Fonts banged up against the secondary. I love both Emmanuel Sanders and I also love a Deebo Samuel. WHO's really been coming on? I love both of those guys. Wide Receiver Twos Erico. I loved Jimmy Garoppolo Rob Lowe. This week Jimmy. Garoppolo is going to be a top six quarterback in my rankings. I love this matchup for him at home. Coming off a massive game Garoppolo is really feeling I don't like him. And I like his receivers in this game. I think San Francisco scores a ton of points in this one. As a matter of fact. Ross they are the second highest total team of the week after the Baltimore Ravens. Wow Okay I'm looking forward to Sunday night football. It's the buffalo bills at the Pittsburgh steelers maybe not a great fantasy matchup but should be a good game. Well it's going to be a Richard in the soil game Ross to borrow a term. I'm from Greg Cosell. You can translate that however you want this is the lowest lined game. I'd have seen all season thirty. Six and a half total points. The projected final score with the steelers opening is two point. Favorites is nineteen point. Two five for Pittsburgh in seventeen point two five for Buffalo. That is atrociously low as you as you alluded to a bad bad fantasy game. We'll see about James Connor For for the steelers the bills had actually struggled on the ground for much of the season however then they come out and they shut down the ravens run game last week. So James Connor. I would play as an rb to if he goes if he doesn't go. I don't trust anybody in this backfield after what happened to Benny Snell last week. Just forty one rushing yards. And he lost lost a fumble against Arizona. So I don't like don't like the backfield unless conner plays a sure as hell. I'm not playing duck. Hodges in this match up at wide receiver James Washington's. It's GonNa draw a really tough match up. I would think he's the guy who gets the Davis white treatment so I don't like him if Juju plays I probably don't like Deontay Johnson and either so really. The only guys I'd consider from Pittsburgh are Juju as low end wide receiver. Three and James Connor is an rb to if he plays I otherwise if connor. Ju You don't play. I'm totally fine. benching all of your steelers. That's how much I hate this matchup. Wow Okay on the bill saying well. I don't like it much better for them. Either either. John Brown has run into a brick wall of matchups the last few weeks and it's really hurt him obviously against Baltimore. Just three for Twenty six eight targets August by the way. I don't think Josh Allen Play particularly well either. So that we take that into account he threw a touchdown pass against Dallas and a good matchup but had just three twenty six receiving against Denver. Are- scored the touchdown late but had just two thirty nine receiving this is another brutal match up for John Brown Here Christian Kirk went off in garbage time last week. I think you you have to play John Brown as a wide receiver three but Joe Haden and company are playing really really well so you have to adjust your expectations and really hope John Brown just gets behind the defense for a touchdown Cole Beasley Wide Receiver. Four don't like the matchup for him Minka Fitzpatrick roams across the middle another reason. I don't like Dawson knocks this week. The really the bill I feel best about. And maybe I shouldn't is Devon Single Terry. The running back who really got involved in the passing game last week saw eight targets last week against in Baltimore. I really like him. He's playing up and over seventy percent of the snaps but he's the best guy I feel I feel good about as kind of a flex option. Unfortunately for him. He hasn't hasn't scored a rushing touchdown since week nine and he has a four total touchdowns on the season. I like single Terry. But it's a tough match-up everyone else including Josh Allen. Who is Low End quarterback one high in quarterback this week Monday night football. It is the colts and the saints. Why don't you start the Colts Joe? the walking wounded. Here they are they are the. AFC's version of Philadelphia. I don't know about T. Y.. Hilton Devin funchess isn't coming coming off of IRR. Paris Campbell talked about him last week while he came off I are he's back on. I R so he's out for the season Zack. Pascal unfortunately is going to get the Marshon. Sean lattimore treatment. Because he's been the guy you can count on here. The last couple of weeks seven for one night against Tennessee. Five for seventy four touchdown in the good matchup against Tampa last week but he's as a wide receiver three at best. Because I think he's going to get the treatment for Marshon lattimore now. Maybe you see that New Orleans gave up big plays to depot Samuel and they gave a big plays to Emmanuel Sanders last night. And you're like well. Let me take a shot on Marcus Johnson. That is a desperation play. I'm not trusting that I don't trust your Koby on and unfortunately the colts are nine point underdogs which suggests this doesn't set up well as a Marlin game so I consider him a low end rb two in a game where the game flow does not set up well for him at all. This is a really bad match up across the board for the Indianapolis Colts. The Guy feel best about even though he was a disappointment in week number fourteen. Is Jack Doyle. We saw George biddle different player of course but we saw George cadle did to the saints. I feel best about Jack. Doyle mismatch of for Indianapolis Okay and then on the other side with the saints boy today. Look good against the niners defense. Was Jared Cook early. Michael Go. Thomas is the new Antonio Brown in terms of consistency. It's crazy what are you got in this matchup. Well the one thing that really frustrated three to me not that you're sitting him if you've made it this far but the New Orleans Saints Put up what forty six points in that game against San Francisco Cisco drew brees goes for three forty nine and five touchdowns Alvin Kamara accounts for forty three yards from scrimmage. What's going on here man? He he hasn't scored in like ten weeks. He scored in only one game. This year. You have to play him but unfortunately I think if you've had Kamara you might be eliminated eliminated at this point unless you've done some bad ass work on the waiver wire so he's the guy I'm concerned about the other thing we have to watch. Of course is jared cook. What's his status going to be? He scored two touchdowns last week but he left with a concussion. Drew brees for sure. You're playing in this game. I actually think you could take shadow matteis. Murray I like Latavius. Murray with the Saints Saints is nine point favorites at home. You're obviously playing Michael Thomas. But then the question becomes are right. Who else do you play? Jared Cook is her. Josh Hill. Caught two passes. This is for four yards are playing tastes hill. Not A quarterback you're not unless he has dual positional eligibility in your leagues trae. Quant Smith. He caught two passes. Ted ginn ed. Four fifty. It's really a team at looked phenomenal last week. But they spread things out so the guys I feel good about our breeze Thomas and Murray I I don't even feel good about Kamara even though you gotta play them I think the saints are going to score points in this game. The problem is it's hard to predict where those points are gonNA come from and I'm not willing at this stage of my fantasy season to take a shot on a guy like trae Kwan. Smith I just can't do it.

What people need to know is just a friendly reminder. There are four teams on buys. It's Atlanta Dallas the chargers and the Tennessee titans and Evan. It should also be known that while we were recording part one, which we just finished the jets put Blau Powell on. I r so any thoughts for you as to how ownership pick up what it means for Nigeria Crowell owner like me or anything else. Yeah. I mean, I think that it definitely raises the ceiling for Zia crow ELS workload potential. Cruel is still relatively limited player though. And I think they clearly want to keep him in nature bitty of some kind. We saw that last week trick Keaton stepping of mentioned on the first one I'm trying to get Trent Kane and off the waiver wire deep dynasty leagues already Elisha McGuire in that league. So I have the jets backup running back assing game specialists. Foreigner. And those are the two guys to think about behind is Ahah curl. Sure that they will add someone in the meantime, not sure what illegible wires. Status right now broke his foot before the season. So never want to see a running back with a broken foot. Yeah. Will be interesting to to keep an eye on that. Let's get into the games now. And we'll start with the colts and the raiders. Raiders are taking team, you know, taking is it thing. Now. NFL? So welcome to the new NFL. This is an actual teams are doing the raiders are trading away. Young Pro Bowl players. We saw early the season with Khalil Mack. We just saw with Mark Cooper, not that Amari Cooper has been great by any means, you know, he's been on a downward trajectory as opposed to upward trajectory, but trading Khalil Mack was the first sign of it. And they've been shopping coral Joseph, and we may see some more moves when when all is said done, but I think this team that the colts can really really beat up on Marlin back has been on fire recently seven yards per carry over the last two games. One thing that stood out to be about Marla MAC is how decisive has been between the tackles that was not a facet of his game at USS, and I was really high on coming out of college. But I always knew that he had these these. These aspects of his game that might not appeal to coaches and one of them was his tendency to bounce runs outside. He's just kind of an inconsistent player. But over the last two weeks, she has been decisive not dancing runs outside even last year. You know, he got buried behind at or behind the line of scrimmage at the second highest rate in the NFL the colts offensive line. This is awesome. Zero sacks allowed on one hundred twenty five straight pass attempts for you to luck the longest stretch of his career the colts offensive line in football, outsiders run blocking. Metrics are number five in the NFL. They hit Fiqh Chris Ballard as fix this offense of line. I mean, you got brame Smith, right? Tackle you got Martin Lewinsky who they got bricks with was the second round pick this year. Mark glue Inskeep. Who Chris Ballard claimed off waivers last December starting at right tat right right guard. Ryan Kelly healthy at center he was Ryan Grigson final first round pick left guard. Of course, this year's first round. Pick Quinn Nelson and the Costanzo back healthy pretty good offensive line, man. I mean, and they're getting it done. I think they're going to beat up on this terrible slow raiders team Marlin MAC should shred. Andrew luck has fifteen touchdowns over the last four games quietly. Making a run at Patrick Mahomes for the league lead touchdown passes. Love to see it. Andrew look back ball and to Hilton back. Bulling back from the hamstring injury last week actually plays. Fifty three percent of the snaps and was not really a big factor for the entire game other than catching a couple of short TD's of that bodes well against this just being out there and make it through the game healthy bodes well. Heading into this game against the raiders. Should not rush the passer hemorrhage big plays down the football field. All that is t y Hilton's game. Very very excited to see him racing past. Dominique Rodgers Cromartie. Darryl wurley for long touchdown bombs on Sunday. Do not expect Jack Doyle back this week at Eric soup suffered the injury last week. Don't think he's gonna play. So again, Eric Iran all-systems-go had a slower week last week looks past attempts were way down, but he still led the team in targets is a lucked in every week. Fantasy starter. You look at the splits within without TY L and don't really want any part of Chester Rogers, unless his t- wise going to miss time in the future. Hime Hines has been rendered obsolete by Marlin MAC playing so much on the other side. I actually don't think that Mark Cuban removing him from the offense changes a whole lot other than just frees up marshawn Lynch has been removed from offense to and together they were combining for nine targets game. But other than that. I don't think it really changes a whole lot losing marshawn extra. I think is a bigger blow to the offense that Mark Cooper Mark per had two. Good games at a six and the other ones under under twenty ours is out there occupying the quarterback. I think the Jordy Nelson becomes a much more interesting wide receiver three slash flex play. At Jared, cook, even though he had to slow weeks before their week seven bye. He is he's going to be good to go. Either way. He still ran the east most routes and NFL over the over that five and six span. Seth Roberts is gonna play more at Slough receiver. But that's not very interesting. Martavis Bryant was second on the team area arts behind Amari Cooper, who is leading the team areas. So I think Martavis Bryant as someone that the raiders kind of embarrassingly gave up a third round pick middle third round pick for. They're going to want to get something out of him just to you know, for for ego sake. Probably he's going to get big play chances. So he's he's in the mix like a DFS sort of play. And I think that he's in Mexico. Hi, variants wide receiver force lash flex, Doug. Martin is going to be the early down feature back in. Jalen Rashard is going to be the passing down back for the raiders. Which means that the guy that you want is Jalen Rashard. You know, because he's going to be playing a game where they fall behind and the raiders are going to be falling behind a lot as we move forward. Jalen Rashard immediate starter in PR Li ext Doug Martin stand dependent guy. Just really is not a fact it years as rusher to move onto the next one. The next game. It's the Niners who disappointing against the Rams against the cardinals. Who are just as appointing. Yeah. Just to pretty bad teams. I have not written this one up yet. Because there are a lot of injury concerned things especially like, Matt Brita. N even Josh Rosen. Although it looks like he's going to play by left which is going to take over as the cardinals offensive coordinator and replacing Mike McCoy, and he was hired by Bruce Arians. He was with Bruce Arians in Pittsburgh during Ben's big bend suspension. And was it was a backup there with Charlie batch. And Bruce Arians loved him. And of course, Brazilians was the coach of the cardinals. When David Johnson had is monster season in two thousand sixteen. So hopefully, you know, they're on the horn together. Bruce Arians is giving him ideas of better ways to use David Johnson. But the forty Niners have really struggled to they've been good in run defenses straightaway run defense, but they have struggled against running backs in the passing game. Like, they give free catches kinda like that. The the Dan Quinn scheme in Atlanta, but they defend them more poorly. So I think that you know, we we need to see David Johnson getting six to ten targets every game. And hopefully Byron left which agrees with that. Larry showed finally got in the end zone last week. That was good to see, you know, I think that his upside is clearly clearly is is floor in a ceiling are clearly not comfortable at all. But he's in the mix as a wide receiver three play. Forty Niners has been really weak against outside corner against outside receivers. And that's where Christian Kirk mainly plays. George Kittle one of the best three tight ends in football. I mean, I feel confident saying that right now, or at least one of the top four because we have not seen gronk at full speed this year, but I mean right there with with irt Saint Kelsey. George KENDALL is frigging. Awesome. Vols in the run in the past games. On the other side. So Rahima stare if not breed it is not play in that Brita seemingly overcomes the odds. Every single week ROY Hema stared. I think would be the forty Niners Lee back. I think it's pretty clear that he is a head of Alfred Morris at this point in time in Kyle Shanahan's mind he should be owned in all leagues. I mean. This is a great match up for any running backs. Not like the the cardinals are necessarily terrible and run defense. But because they cannot sustain drives offensively teams are just piling up rushing attempts against them every game running a ton of plays them. So that always bodes well for a rushing attack. Because what you want in rushing attack is vol you are the cardinals gonna trade Patrick Peterson. Just there are a lot of question marks in this game. That are difficult to answer. We can move onto the next one. Okay. The next one is the Packers at the Rams interesting to see what the line is for this game. The Rams is heavy favorites. Thinking for this one. Evan Rams are heavy favorites. And the total is pretty monstrous it was it opened at fifty six and immediately bets came in on though over and it's up to fifty seven and a half. Now. So love to see that Todd Gurley Amine. What what is there left to say? He is on pace to break ladainian Tomlinson's single season record for most all purpose touchdowns by running back. Packers not been good in run defense and his massive home favorite. Jared Goff has been more of a floor than feeling play in fantasy of the high scoring projection in this game. I think really, you know, bodes well for him. I don't my guess is that Cooper Cup won't be back. I'm not sure we're gonna have to figure that out as the week moves forward. Josh Reynolds was not a not a factor with. With Cooper Cup out last week one target titan. You know, we're not really factors either. And then. Rainy, cooks, and Barada woods really did the heavy lifting. In addition to Todd Gurley on the other side Aaron Rodgers I think that first of all he before the by week he had a thirty or more rushing yards in two of his final three starts before the week seven by then he was a top five fantasy quarterback in each of the two games leading into the by. Now, the Packers actually were chasing in both of those games. But it's entirely possible that they could be chasing here that, you know, would would make it a very fun bucks gore day for Aaron Rodgers. And I think that in terms of just sheer upside at the quarterback position it's Patrick Mahomes. And it's Aaron Rodgers in week eight. Although interlocked also deserves mention there if the the raiders can can do anything offensively. The receiver core is going to be interesting to see how shakes out. Markaz vowed scheduling the big slot receiver with four three seven speed is really giving them a new dimension on offense, which is size in his lengthy is jets and Randall Cobb and drama, Alison, we're just dropping passes and fumbling and making all kinds of mistakes before they got hurt. So. Are they going to go away from the impressive young rookie? I'm not, you know, that'd be very interesting to see. But it makes all those guys very risky investments. I think that of the three Toronto Allison is the safest back to come back with a big role because he's been playing outside whereas Cobb and volt out a scheduling been playing insight vantera Demonte, Adam should rip this open ten touchdowns overs last ten games. You know, and you want to attack Marcus Peters and Troy hill on outside for the Rams. They had been playing Sam shields on outside. But they want a benching him. For Troy hill. Former undrafted free agent. The Rams have given up the eighth most yards to opposing tight ends. George kiddle had a big game against them last week. Jimmy Graham comes off the bye in a pretty good spot here. I mean, he was he was doing well in weeks one through six top-five among tight ends in charge and area arts. Running back situations. Very frustrating. You know, we all know their Jones can can ball, but they don't use them in the passing game. They don't trust them to be a full-time player. And they continue us this three way running back rotation. I mean in week six before the by Jones had the few snaps out of all of them. Played nineteen snaps. Ten Montgomery played twenty three Jamal Williams by twenty seven. So until we see in actual change in that backfield distribution, we, you know, all we can say is that you know, we hope and we think that this should happen. And we just, you know, move forward with what the coaches are telling us we can move onto the next one. Next game. Did you do the Rams? Yes, sir. That was quick. Only I was focusing on the Packers involved as scantly. I know you love that dude. How about how about Sunday night? How about the rematch man saints? Vikings. Yep. The rematch these teams actually played twice last year. So this is gonna be their third game since week one. Remember that Sam Bradford game read just lit them up. I think it was on a Monday night. But in this will be the third quarterback for the Vikings during that span, but the know this game will be played indoors. It's got a pretty big total Kirk cousins balling. This will be there really their best opportunity to dial up a deeper passing game. They'd been a quick out offense as they should be their offense of line problems. Johnny Filipa your this coaching tree of Doug. Peterson is really starting to develop quickly def- Lippo in Frank right? Doing great jobs as former eagles assistance. But they have gotten the ball out of Kirk cousins hands quickly. Look like the average up target for Adam see you in and Stefan digs really really short on both under ten yards. So. These guys are not like being targeted on deep downfield passes of this. This will give them an opportunity to get the, you know, get those chances because the saints have been giving up a lot of big plays football field. Can't really rush the passer. On their quarterback situation is such that, you know, they went out and made the trade for you lie. Apple they know that they are in bad shape side for Marshon Lattimore, go back and watch the January divisional round game between these teams and Marshon Lattimore actually shadowed Adams, dealing not Stefan Dicks in that game. But any any held him to seventy four yards on nine targets? But I feel that game was playing through trains verse process fractures in his back. And he also was playing more outside receiver at that time. Then he is this year that she was a sixty two percent slot receiver. Marshon Lattimore has gone into the slot. Three percent of the time. So I think that of who's gonna have another big game. And you know, I think the Vikings are going to be trying to proactively trying to get him another big game. Because if it goes over one hundred yards again, he breaks the NFL record for most consecutive hundred plus yard games. I I still think that you know, we'll digs is gonna be inside twenty five percent of the time. So he's not going to be on. Marshon Lattimore the entire game. And you know, the the saints the high scoring nature of the game. I think bodes well for Stefan Dick's, so he's not like a wide receiver one this week. But I do think that he is a confident wide receiver to Stefan digs, of course, had a monster week one game against the same. Saints defense last week one in of course, scored that walk off sixty one yard touchdown in the divisional round. Kyle rudolph. You know, it's not a whole lot upside here that he is demonstrated. Just getting you know, but somewhere between four and six tar gets each week not really getting into the end zone. So you kind of know what you're dealing with lake on Treadwell has a bunch of targets outback Robinson's Keach keeps on catching touchdowns late while Lakewood treadwell's does nothing so. No interest in those complimentary receivers on the other side. Drew Brees started off that that game. Last January really slow through a couple of picks early saints gotten a whole they rallied back and drew Brees wound up having a monster game. As did Michael Thomas biking's have played better defense recently. But really have not been tested, and they are going to be tested here. I don't think Xavier roads is going to play. Everson Griffen likely to remain out. Do the personal matter. Indra Syndey ho their free safety has been banged up on the internet bar left. The game last week with a hamstring injury. Did not return in the fourth quarter. So they could be really oh ah Lindvall Joseph didn't play last week. I mean, they are really really banged up defensively. I think the drew Brees is fire the cannons in this indoor potential shootout. Michael Thomas, fire the cannons. Tree. Quant Smith has three and six targets in two games without Ted Ginn. I think that's what we should sit expect for him high variants deep threat just basically playing the same role that Ted game in did previously. Cameron. Meredith was a no-show in the last game. And I think that he's rule is just less consistent than trick on Smith camera marathon Rin tin routes in week seven or eleven routes in week seven zero targets. The backfield distribution between Alvin Kamara Mark Ingram. I think last week was more in line with what we should expect Alvin Kamara nineteen touches Mark Ingram. Fourteen. Touches Vikings have been very good in run defense. But again, they could be without a bunch of key players in this one Ben Watson, his his like routes run and his snaps and all that were about the same that they had been last week. But he caught a touchdown all six of his targets against the ravens of things are kind of similar to the ravens in that the best way to go after them is in the middle of the field with tight ends at least when when everybody's at full strength. Suben watson. I think makes some sense as a streamer in a potential high scoring game in weekend or no likings are need to talk about their running back. So I just don't know about the running back. Some fortunately dalvin cook. Hamstring injury. You know, he's gonna try to come back. This we guide. No, let's have you Mary his played really, really. Well. And even if Delvin comes back. I mean, let's say Murray has earned a role we can move onto the next one. The next one is the last one Evan. It's the patriots and the bills I will be there on the sideline Monday night. Trying not to freeze my butt off. It's still a pct threat shouldn't be that bed. And I'm not expecting the Bill to really score any points. Right, right. One thing that might clay of ESPN noted this week is that the bills have played seven games and in five of them. The defence facing them finish as top three defense in fantasy on the week, which is just absurd because these are very very high variance in fantasy. I mean, you defense in the best possible spots, and they won't come through. You know in some terrible defense would just go off in terms of fantasy points happens all the time. But you know, this this signals. Hey, let's you know, let's let's check out the patriots fantasy defense here against this this bills team because guess what? Derek Anderson at four turnovers three picks last week and. He should have had another pick. But Margus hunt dropped it. So. Near he Anderson. You know, this is like an expansion level team the Buffalo Bills with McCoy suffers a concussion don't know if he's gonna play Chris Chris ivory could end up with a bunch of carries in this game. He should be owned in all leagues and always not a sexy player by by any means. But any dude who is imposition? Maybe get a bunch of usage should be on fantasy rosters. One good thing. The Derek Anderson did do last week was get Kelvin Benjamin going little bit seventy one yards. That's big for Kelvin Benjamin these days now you look at the the stat lines. When Derek Anderson has started with Kelvin Benjamin going back to Carolina since a four-game sample at this point of quarter of a season Kella measurement is going over seventy yards in all four of them. With a couple of big games now is gonna have to face all Stefan Gilmore who has been legit lights out this season. You our Robinson last week? So Kelvin Benjamin. Shakey wide receiver three. But at least he's not a shaky wide receiver five like he was for the first six games, you know, dome really want any part of Charles clay, the Bella check has always had like his fear of Charles clay, double teamed him stuck a keep Toledo on them. One game back in the day. So no-one mess around with him on the other side. I think gronk is going to be back in historically ES smashed the bills. This is where he's from. So. You know, he just think he is not looked same this this year in a definitely wouldn't be surprised if it's because of the back that has been hindering him and obviously last week missed the game because of the back like a late edition to injury report. So certainly something to monitor, but it seems like the signs point to him returning this week. Josh Gordon is going to have to deal with Tadeusz white, Josh Gordon's but ball. Mate's the bunch of big plays last week. But this is going to be a little bit tougher of a matchup. I do think that based on how much he is playing based on how many how many targets he seeing based on his level of play that he we should consider him to be a matchup proof wide receiver to. But I think that this is a game where he might not reach ceiling. Chris HOGAN has started to come on a little bit. But you know, with gronk there that'll be Gordon James white going nuts. You know, just a bunch of mouths to feed in the passing Chris HOGAN, not a reliable play. This is revenge game for Chris HOGAN who famously or or not so famously earned the nickname seven eleven for always being open on the bills practice squad. Julian I don't you know, where we're rolling him every week. He's been excellent. And then you know, you know, the deal was Brady Sony. Michelle do not think we're gonna see this week. And so that actually positions Kenyan Barner to get some carries against buffalo. He could end up with a lot of carries. This is not a game where it's likely that to to be a back and forth affair, you know, it's it's likely to be a game where the patriots try to stop there. The bills throat early in the game. And then you know, play their backups late in the game. And that would be that would be Kenyon Barnard James white. Of course, unbelievable season really has made the leap in two thousand eighteen fantasy started regardless of PR or non PR that takes care of that one.

You guess radio show host. That's what I am John. How do you like I guess what like, he's got a hobby. He doesn't hobby three hours a day five days a week and Sirius XM radio. It's all I got job. That's all I got. I just didn't know if satellite was considered radio. That's why I woke. You know, I didn't know what we're going to it's called Sirius XM radio, but I know what you're saying, there's terrestrial which of the Old School radio and they're satellite, but they still call it radio until they come up with a dog. Be branded to make more money. I guess that's really all right. Well, can we get your face a little upset because you're going out of frame a little bit. Let me do this like this. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, perfect perfect off before 4 so, okay. How's that? Perfect. I'll stay right there. All right, then go ahead and plug yourself before we get going. I have plenty to talk about about the dotard and and everything that's going on with this Administration. And then I'm going to tell you why I'm very jealous of you. All right first first go ahead and plug how people could listen to you. You had to be you have to have the password which I will give out know it's through Sirius XM radio you go to it folks. It's free trials on the website go to Sirius XM, You never have to pay for it. Just keep signing up for free trial phone now and pay for it. It's listening to my show. It's on 6 to 9 p.m. Eastern time. I turn on 127 on SiriusXM want you to progress check the political progress Channel and we cover politics here, but like the officials have Bernice off. Join yesterday, but that's sort of typical but now we're having more I had Bob Newhart on 2 days ago. What a thrill of my life. And so since we got past the election and now the Electoral College voted off a little more freedom not to do a hundred percent of politics all the time. It's kind of a mix right now. Well, I have to tell you something. I was going to say the reason first of all, I know that you're on Sirius. I just didn't know what times 6 and I am financially. Yeah, but I was just going to tell you that I'm jealous cuz you had said Bernie Sanders on the only found many times. We had a good relationship, but he had become President Bush by the Secretary of State and I'm not something like that maybe attorney general but no he's been on a bunch of times. We had a long long relationship with him and he came out last night and he really I'm not home to try to say trash Democratic party. He was giving constructive hits the Democratic party saying at this election, you know by DeJuan but look at the down about we lost like twelve seats in the House dog. Can do on State legislatures and that the bottom line is the Democratic brand right now is not resonating outside of the big cities. And he really thinks you've got to do things that appeal to the working class of all backgrounds. He's not a thing. Don't try to appeal to Black and Hispanics. Of course, you said that's important but the working class transcends One race. It's not just white working-class anymore. That's just kind of old school thought you have to be about showing people that you're truly going to fight for them that you're not corporate is do not like the old Democrats you evolved as a party. If you don't then it's just the one politician versus another thousand actually impacts my life for the better. So what does it matter on my goal for Trump some I'd say as opposed to you know, I really hope for the Democrats they hope my life. They don't my family's life. That's what we have to give that Authority. Yeah, and you know, I love Bernie, but like so what is he saying that we should you know, you know, what was his solution it's not it's not about you can get like an art options and then a roadmap going this is dead. You mostly it's more of a it's not about being more liberal. That's not what he's talking about at. All right. Now, it's really interesting. It's really how do we go to our Roots as Democrats of being known for fighting for the middle class and lower class, especially the working-class overall the Working Poor and the middle class in this country made people realize that we're not just talking about it. They are real priorities to help people who work for a living wage people like my leg down and took a shower after work. It was a cook and work twelve hours a day on his feet. Like we have to be different in the GOP and it's bigger point was really this is true the last few years. We've been the anti Trump. That's what we did. But now we have a chance to affirmatively say this is what we stand for this more about this search and so he's throwing in they're going be the part of your working class make the case the American people you're going to be there for them even said like he even opposed things like usually terms like the fund the police like why why was really Progressive he's also pragmatic. That's what Bernie trying to log. Wants us to win no, no. No, I believe me. You know, I love Bernie and the only reason wine I'm jealous. Now is you had Bob Newhart. I mean, I love Bob Dillon's. Oh my God. As I can tell he had a new special other than political on Thursday December 17th. The first time it's available online the twenty-five-year-old special but now you get it on iTunes in Google Play and I watched it off and the comedy a few exceptions is really timeless. It was filmed in nineteen. Ninety s front of a live audience, but you know, what's remarkable John he shared in nineteen sixty he put out this off to change comedy the button down, dear Bob Newhart became the number one album not just comedy a big Sinatra. What was remarkable is when they taped it and he performed it off. The first time he ever did stand-up comedies entire life was hoping that for a live voice everything else you've done was pre-recorded even doing for years like radio bits and and calling into place and do this song. Quarters funny bits and sort of sketches. He never did stand up before in front of a live audience and it goes on to be a classic Comedy album that changed, D for a great deal of it cuz there's no, in fact, it made people realize you can make a living to extend it really changed everything and I'll tell you then. I mean he has like the best delivery. It's so deadpan, you know, he's dead and I love both of these shows, you know, The Bob Newhart Show and then of course and then he did the one we're like out in the out like a bed and breakfast or something. It was new heart and lungs with ended famously where he it's a dream like the whole show was a dream and he was back in his original Michelle and I said to him I feel like this whole trunk thing has been like that. We're going to wake up with Obama still present life. That was all a dream. The guy from The Apprentice wasn't president. There wasn't a white supremacist in the White House last four years. It was a bomb and now we're going to have to come in and my both direct your though. It's not sure. Dream It's a nightmare. Oh, no, it's the worst. This has been what we live through John stories. I can look back at this guy and say America was really at a Crossroads. I'm not being over-the-top truly. We could have slid into that truly a fascist government but much more of an authoritarian government and there was just reporting just before I came on John that Trump met at the White House yesterday with Mike Flynn and my club was advocating to him the idea of imposing martial law and forcing a new election. That's not forcing a new election for a full and free one. It's having new elections Trump wins. I mean, that's something you read about America in Flint is in the white house talking to Trump about that. Is that going to happen know the military won't go along with it. But if you worry about that another country, you'd be like there's a coup after they're doing it and you're you're right. So don't be heavier to call out this absolute bulshit what it is. It's a cool guy. Yeah, I mean and that's why you know, I'm so happy to have you birth. Because I mean it really it just like you said it has been an insane for years and this guy is the the epitome of a of a baby. I mean, I mean, you know, like he loses any cries and whines and I mean and he's wearing the diapers to boot. So I guess it's I guess it's fitting but I mean, it's really been a nightmare. It's been something that it's sort of like when you go through a horrible experience if someone told you in advance how hard how bad that was going to be you weren't sure if you could withstand it like I don't know if I want to do that even like doing a project like I made a documentary and I thought we were done with it. I looked back like that was awful. I don't think I want to do that again. I don't think anyone explained how bad was going to be. I don't think you could have believed it like from from pitting people against each other to send off violence committed his name to like saying I'm going to protect white people from low-income people and Cory Booker come in your neighborhood like 1950s type of Jim Crow segregation bullshit. He dead Talking during this campaign and despite can hate crimes. I mostly like it's my community against black community Hispanic anti-static anti-semitic off the chart take confidence in the last few years. I don't think you would believe it. You know, like come on. He's going to just be a normal guy. He's been a horrible job. I mean really objective of horrific not horrible to everybody not only wage African Americans but the Muslims and two and two women and you know, I mean and and and to Hispanics, I mean it and to transgender be you know, it has been just like I say and this is the most bizarre thing Dean, you know, I have Evangelical Christian cousins who love Donald Trump and to me off Trump is the Antichrist. I mean he is he has everything opposite of what Jesus was. You know what I mean? I'm I'm a big fan of Jesus birth. From my mom's catholic and Jesus is actually part of Islam is an important. He's right up there. He's like a big profit. So he's his teachings are important. Jesus is about law was about compassion about you know, famously and not you know, I was hungry you fed me. I was first few things from a drink you were straight. I was a stranger inviting me in Trump is literally done the opposite of all of that. And if you're a Christian who says, well, he's off on pro-life judges. So I'll forgive all this cruelty. I don't think you're really embracing the teachings of Jesus Christ to be honest. I just don't believe you are no and that's why I just don't let you know. Let me ask you log in you'll be a smarter one here. Why then why don't why then does do these Christians support this idiot. I don't understand it. But some of it is some of it they walk around in the idea of like he's appointing pro-life judges. That's all we care about because we want our press limit at all costs and he's going to help us deliver the oppression of women cuz they're not pro-life. You can't call them pro-life they were dead. They've been fighting against the measures to save lives from covid-19. Some of the same right-wingers rallying against the idea of wearing masks. They're not pro-life their profession. So pressing women's a big thing to them being able to discriminate against LGBT community like Trump putting in there. If you're transgender American, you can't serve a non-military that makes them happy even that's their perverted version of Christianity mm. Be cruel to those who are in need while Jesus or the leopards. I mean, I'm not according to do but I'm saying the people in need of the time he was there for them. So that's part. I also think John off here are some deeper issues going on that people won't admit to why they really like Trump and I'm not saying their family are racist or I don't know them. I've no idea but for some it's conscious or subconscious. Here's a guy to keep the white power structure in place. Here's a guy who's going to keep women in place. Here's a guy that's going to make sure the uppity black people are kept quiet and Latinos don't overwhelm us and Muslims are kept out of them. That was really his Playbook one of his campaign last time and as president and there's people who won't admit that's the reason but to me John this kind of favor raise it on the left that they're voting against yourself interest is such a level of arrogance from the left know. We don't know their self interest better than they do they know their self-interest. They look at something to go. That's exactly what I want and whatever isn't that do that? He's delivering is it white supremacy is a Christian Sharia law. I got a Christian Sharia law and they want to make the Bible or whatever it is. They know what they want and not voting against their stuff. They just hundred percent for their self-interest. They just won't tell us sometimes What It Is Well, it's so, you know, it's not funny but it's so crazy that I don't know if you know Christian Kirk he took us waiting all this BS but but he wrote you can't be Christian and be pro-choice or charger just heard the district. Yeah. Yeah, cause I'm turning off. Which I think it was better in its original German name when it was Hitler Youth. But anyway, so go ahead. Yeah, so Charles Kirk. Yeah Christian Kirk is a wide receiver. I'm sorry, but I know off Charles Kirk says you can't be Christian and be pro-choice and I wrote back to you can't be Christian and be pro-death penalty, you know, because I'm a Christian and but Christians will disagree with me because they'll say they they voted for white and then jellicle still supported him more than anything. I think if I saw the exit polls Catholics, you didn't get a majority this time and obviously Jews and Muslims really against them because as minority faiths, we know what a danger of this guy is both groups understood that so but they can do whatever they want. It's he's gone. And what's remarkable is 126 members of Congress or republican signed a brief calling for overthrowing our election, even though there's no off. Are there because you know, I just wrote about this and I think this is so important cuz there are jumpers who say well trim never got his day in court to make his fraud case. I'm like, why did he not have more good lawyers out your son. That's a ride reality. They had over ninety judges heard the cases by trumpet his allies including half of them were appointed by Republican Governors eight of them were picked off Donald Trump himself eight three Supreme Court Justice in five others. And what are they all agree on that? There's not enough evidence. In fact, there's almost no evidence to show any fraud or irregularities overturn. The selection truck was every single case in try and his allies to overturn the election not because there's another day in court because they didn't have the evidence so that people are still advocating overturn the election. And you said that's a smokescreen for the political group that they are saying I don't believe in democracy. I don't believe in the Constitution we can't prove far, but I still want my guy in Power. I don't care what the voters job. Because I only care about what I want and that's really the basis of an or authoritarian autocratic and I would say fascist regime. That's what Trump Trump's of fascist. We don't fascist government, but he's a fascist wage. Yeah, and the thing that really boggles the Mind Dean is when you have people like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and all these Kevin McCarthy and Tom Cotton all these people they see and they know that Donald Trump's a fascist, but they don't do anything. Like do they what do they want to just tear up the Constitution Johnny Winter? There was a choice I can give you I'll give you a free trial on SiriusXM. So give us into my show. Here's the thing the there's so much of his false median area. We've heard for four years and Republicans are there are so afraid of trump Donald Trump tweeted me you're missing it. They agree with Trump. You have to get that these are adults. Most of them are millionaires. Yeah, they could lose their seat and still be million years. They live their life. They agree with you. They believe in power at all costs, you know fascism defined by Madeleine Albright wrote a great book called fascism. I wanted it simple cuz it's not like Socialism or communism. It's not ideology. Like that really means is it's undemocratic measures to acquire and retain power that's Annex basis. And then there's certain little check marks to do. It makes it faster such such as turning people against each other hyper nationalism is another one that's stirring a problem with no solution. But the big one that Trump check the box on his use or endorsing violence to keep power and he did that several times, especially a few months ago when his supporters with the Portland and Shop people are paintballs, which is a crime that's assault but he was shooting they were shooting Trump off Esther's and Trump literally defended it Trump is a fascist the GOP. I want people to repeat after me everybody. Here you go John everyone. The GOP is the party of fascist, please say that the GOP off. He is the party of fascism. So every time they call us a socialist government. We're not socialist but your party's the party of fascism and let them defend themselves against fascism. If we call them, we're not socialist that's just not true academically. It's not even close to being right, but they call us every day. And it sticks we have to start calling them fascists and let us have a discussion the definition of fascist. I'm all for that cuz we're going to win that one. Yeah, and you know, I have to just you know, this is really irritating to me cuz I just I was watching CNN today and Dean I cannot believe I just real life. Is that the whole new stimulus package they're now arguing if we get six hundred or seven hundred dollars and let me just tell you this Dean. The stimulus Relief Fund of other countries, Australia Nineteen Hundred a month Canada 1400 month Denmark up to three thousand a month France seven thousand a month German Long Island, almost two thousand a month the UK three thousand a month us 1200 for the last thirty two weeks. I mean, how how the hell is this the greatest country and we're the only country that doesn't take care of our people I saw your trade and I thought was such a great point that you put there to give us some perspective on this page, you know, the Republicans when it comes to attack step for their wealthy donors. They are billions of dollars. They didn't care. They rushed through it to impose laws to make it harder to vote. They're on board with that dog jumping on a brief to overturn the election and have hearings overturn the election they're on board with that. But when it comes to helping our fellow Americans, they don't care and just so it's clear for everyone to give some perspective dead. The house Democrats it may pass the hero's act which would bring this robust stimulus package. They re pass another one in October and where it has it gone on Mitch Grim Reaper of McConnellsburg. He didn't do anything. He didn't care if people were neat. He doesn't care what's going on and John the only reason he's even entertaining this as a news report showed this week is that he say reportedly but the GOP candidates for Senate in Georgia are clear off and David for two or a quote getting hammered because they're not delivering the people in need. So the only reason which McCollough even allowing any kind of relieved four people dead is because it might lose in the chamber. All he cares about is power. So the GOP can do something to make their face or their donors happy. They move like that when it comes to helping people in need they don't give a shit off. That's the GOP and I'm not being hyperbolic they care about their donors. There will be donors only when they give crumbs to their Base by saying we're going to be anti-muslim and anti-lgbt that kind of stuff off. But they don't they honestly don't care about people. That's the gop's brand. Well, I do have a question for you then cuz I had at least some read Quran. I don't know if you know she is but she's an attorney and she wrote a great article which should get a lot more eyes on it because what she's saying and and I don't know if you know this and I'm sure you do maybe I took a job that, Harris the vice president Mitch McConnell, even though he's Majority Leader does not mean that he's the only one that could bring a bill to the senate for Kamala Harris could as long as two other Senators want to bring a bill to the floor Kamala Harris is in charge. She could allow that to happen often this the whole Senate Majority Leader only started in 1937, and it's not part of the Constitution. So she's saying that really wage. Ramallah wants to you know, play this hit and once you sworn in once she's president of the Senate they're saying right. I mean, yes, I've heard this and I try to look it up there, you know the wage for the Constitution says the vice president access center of the president. It doesn't say there are fully defined Powers there. There was a time when the vice president really did run the Senate more then I read in around the time of your like the 1930s. They promulgated a bunch of new rules to run this second and there may have been rules before that. Maybe they didn't use it in any event. It seems like 1930s think subject to change and that I cannot find because the center was a really is Arcane things. I gotta find the Senate rules to see if that's still accurate or not. Because to me I would say if this is accurate and widened Joe Biden is Vice President bring Merrick Garland vote to the floor and we had and I had that question and I asked her and yep. Goalie, or I don't know if you know him because he was on the show as well. And what what they were saying, is that Obama? Thought that Hillary's you know, you know that Hillary was going to win. He already picked two supreme court justices and I think you know plus he's he's the first African-American president and he was under a microscope. So he he just thought that Hillary will take care of it. That's what they're saying. But you know now the way Mitch has gone, I mean if we lose in Georgia, I don't think you know, I don't think we have a choice. I will forward you that are you know, I'll love to see people brought up on my show cuz apparently Thom Hartmann who has a show on SiriusXM before me was off while I was doing research and I cannot find a definitive answer on it. I just found what the Constitution says it. Some other thing about the rules, but I just wonder if it's still in effect today cuz Why the last few years divided for jobs built they wanted to do or infrastructure go why didn't he do it and maybe it was forbearance. Maybe they said let's not do this as we do this as I go in the nuclear option wage are going to do this to us. So let's not do it. So maybe it really is there. I'm not saying it's not so I'd love to see that article and it is true once, becomes president of the Senate as vice-president. There might be a time they had to do it. I mean, there's no way around it. Yeah, and you know what, I will forward you. I'll DM you that because I really think that people should be talking about it. And and and I asked her I said do you think buying those about this now when you've been Kamala Harris and she's like with all the people that they have on Twitter and all like all the people there is no way that they can't know about it at this point. They're protecting us and I'm sure he knows all of a sudden so I'm sure he was aware of his but it was sort of probably something you never thought you were going to have to do like actually discussed in getting rid of the filibuster you said well, that's all Buster's good. It protects the Minaj. Party, and so why when we get rid of it, but now we're living a new world where things have changed all this is changing and I think it's not it's not scorched-earth. It's about you want to be effective or you don't suck cuz look Mitch McConnell gladly block everything the Democrats want to do not just to hurt your buying but the hurt the Democratic brain so that we can't get things through and people like, well you promised everything you've done nothing while the GOP they're saying no gets them re-elected against their base happy. It's a difference our supporters and independent voters. We want to sell to we want to say look we're going to raise the minimum wage. We want to live off what address climate change we want to deal with issues that affect your life on a range of issues from you know, student loan debt reform to Criminal Justice Reform and then you go you run for election in the midst of years, you know, like where is everything and you go. Well Mitch McConnell blocking you seem so impotent as a party like well, maybe it was just vote for Republicans that that's the problem. So I think that'll full. I need to actually use you gotta use everything if you want to deliver it for the people. That's what it's about. I mean you get elected it's out on power to a public service. But helping people in need now. There are more kind of six pack is the children are going hungry now right now because of the cold weather relief, we had ninety thousand of our fellow Americans but nine hundred thousand this week. We just learned yesterday file for unemployment new claims in the week before and to give you some perspective. That's five times more pre pandemic in a weekly level that shows you how bad things are. We're getting worse each week now not better and if we can't deliver for people if they're like birthday parties of the same and we're not but fundamentally different. So that's why we gotta win in Georgia January January 5th is so important. So yeah it is and how do you think we're doing that? And I do want to get to the point that you suck at Trump is using the money that is going to Georgia and he's pocketing him. I hope Trump. I want them to just find a job. Republican party in George. I love that. He's attacking them. I love like crazy Limbo with a lawyer sound crazy things and trucks retweeting live with the lawyer and they're calling for Brian Kemp the governor. We put in prison off. Why should you bring the prison going to commit a crime know he just wasn't loyal to Trump. So it's a democracy. So you put people in prison. I love the compass destroying this and taking the money and pocketing it for his own little cock & first golf game, whatever good let him destroy but let the rights to the races. Very close. I've had John Asif on several times. I had him on before I had him on a couple of weeks ago. I had him doing the regular election cycle, really really bright guy knows the issues inside out a good campaigner ribbon Warnock. We've tried to get out it's tough for he's not doing as much National pressed but they are a great team together. They gave me two different constituencies rev want to bring in more of the African American Community John also bringing a younger more, you know, a different type of audience Millennials new voters into this home. Together they got a shot. It's neck-and-neck. It's all going to be turned out. Yeah, and by the way Dean I have to say that my mother just says you are great Dean. So oh tell your mom. She's the best way to say, thank you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, that's Roc Melendez. She's she's from Denmark Osa. Wow. So so say Denmark in is that the right word? But yeah, I'm half Danish. I'm half Puerto Rican. It's an odd mix but freaking. Yeah, I know that you're you're you're Puerto Rican jeans overpower the Danish once before, but I'm a sicilian half Palestinian which in Colour it looks very similar are both similar to other people but but you know, what's so what's a weird John fugelsang off and I have so much in common cuz he's also Danish we both from Long Island. There's so many things that we have in common was like, you know, he's you know, he's coming on next week Thursday. Ever bring up jump. It was like saying to me again. We don't speak that guy didn't know he's a great guy and right after me, I'm six to nine. He's nine ten minutes every night. I throw to John people saying I might show what a great guy girl comic very thoughtful. I really liked it a thoughtful a conscientious as human being really good. So good person. Yeah, you know, it's like cuz I have Hal Sparks on all the time when it's off a little bit but I like I like how between now and and John like I said Thursday to shows ago if those guys played chess it would last for freaking days because they're both Geniuses. They they are they're really smart dog for guys and we're trying to get how I might we actually really dead just like stretching DMS to come on my show and he said yeah just I just you just reminded me but you know John I've known for so long the New York comedy scene we toured with this laughing liberally show this political show years ago. There's so many shows together. It's great to be able to work with them. Although I used to get to see him every night when we went in. We're we've been out of our studio since March and likely through the summer to be honest at this point. That's we're counting on just doing our shows from home till July. I gotta ask you doing this is a good because I saw this on you know on The Huffington Post, I guess Keeler from CNN did a whole fire piece about the hypocrisy of the Republican Party about Biden's. Imma get her birth. I don't know. I forget who you know, I'm blanking on the name, but she said and a magazine article that the Republicans were a bunch of efforts. Yeah, and there are dead. I think Jennifer Gillen who was now like the deputy, press spokesman or something, but she said their efforts. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So then you have Marco Rubio and all them. Guys going crazy over that and then killer read off all the things that Donald Trump has said and Rubio making fun of Donald Trump's penis size home and like and they're all a bunch of Hypocrites and you had Trump saying bastards pieces of shit and all this stuff suckers losers. I mean all this crap and they get mad that I mean, there's such 10-year snowflakes, you know, they have such Luke Rubio when I'm going to love John going for cuz we'll be anything really does now. He's running for president twenty-four so is Ted Cruz so is Josh Hawley and others are already beginning to run the Rand Paul. So short right now is loving some of them but the minute Trump's little brain figures out there actually positioning to steal his support by being nice to him now and defending him and stuff like that. He's going to rip into them. So I can't wait look, this is for outrage. We we should expect it off. For the next four years they did it during Obama like he's wearing a tan suit. Oh my god. Let's have a you know Defcon for they're going to do Alma now, they the whole thing. Dr. Jill Biden how dare she offers of doctor they pick a fight with themselves. They literally pick a fight with themselves. They can you believe that like, I can't believe none of us are talking about that. Not sure nobody was out with Colbert tonight exposures. I don't even know why they're talking about it. I don't even talk about what's the big deal? I have a Doctrine talk to Joe Biden is that I'm proud of that so they pick a fight with themselves. They fight each other and at the end where the bad guy in his fight. So they're going to be that next four years. Anyway, you can you play Hunter Biden and Joe Biden and the dog and everything. It's going to be every day. Oh, I'm so outraged we go out their hypocrisy to keep ourselves strong doesn't change them. They have no decency the GOP. They know distances. They have no Integrity. They are just about power. So calling her out. Their apocracy is only for us to keep our sanity. It's not to move that they don't wage. But you know, what's so crazy mean. I'm sure that you can remember when the Republican party was the party of family values and that's what they pushed so much after Bill Clinton cuz you know, he cheated on Hillary and then they were the party of family values and and now they support a guy who's been accused of sexual harassment and rape like thirty women off timing cheated on body with a pornstar and paid a robe and Karen McDougal and he's a family values guy. He couldn't even tell he doesn't even know his kids middle names a guarantee it the let me repeat something you may have heard earlier. The GOP is the party of fascism. That's all it is. Again. It's purely about power and wage. That's what they're about by having power. They could do a tax cut for the wealthy cut taxes the corporations. It never triples them. They could try that Christian Sharia law the list goes out all their dreams. They could turn America into the birth. Version of Saudi Arabia that's their dream folks. So let's not play games democracy is a speed bump on the way to their goal. So we have to remember what we're dealing with it. None of that John you're calling Piada killer me. If you were saying others. It's only for our sanity. I'm not kidding. It doesn't matter to that. They don't need to be consistent. They don't need to do decent. They don't need to be more or civil there about delivering power and that's it. So the fight is not like the next four years is gonna be different than Trump is Trump every day was like how many days I don't about you how many Mi days began with an item to my fiance? Hang on you're not going to believe what he tweeted and ended with I can't believe what he did today and you know what to fill in the heat, you know that he is trumped and I'm looking forward because right now he is still trying to get the proud boys to keep him in office or some Rogue 1% militia guys to keep him in power. He's personally not giving up on Samsung. But he's gone January twenty. Yeah, and you know, I have the same thing with my kids. I would I would drive into school and I would and right before I turned on the radio. I said, I would go. Okay. Let's see what dumb shit Trump said or did today and then sure enough. They how it's like every single freaking day. I so look forward to just born number off, I look forward to not think about your body for a few days and what it did and not care about what he tweeted cuz he's only going to treat policy stuff and let him run the government and positive way to help people in his present. Now, we would not lost three hundred ten thousand Americans to cope. Oh, yes drummer more Americans alive today than this and I've never seen the commander-in-chief, you know, it would be Thursday is a famous picture of Lyndon Baines Johnson with his head like down almost in tears because the death toll from Vietnam US service members Trump has lost Fifty five thousand Americans lost in Vietnam. We've lost six times that 60 times that in this and Trump is not show any compassion after he doesn't care that a comedian. I know died two weeks ago a friend I grew up with Jim has now two sons who are teenagers have no dad doesn't care about any of that. It's been any parents or moms or dads who lost a loved one or lots of child or anyone's life cycle of the grandparent. He doesn't care but not seeing the sociopath in the white house like this before. Yeah. I know. Oh by the way Dean on a different note people are asking so I'm so all Askew Durban says, how come Dean's never on Stephanie Miller Show anymore. I don't know. We didn't have a falling-out. They just changed the way they were doing their desks. And I think they were they were just doing things different. They were booking more money. Serious guess to talk about some legal stuff and then here were there but you know, I love stuff and she helped me so much in my radio career. That's how I met you when I was producing myself, right so long as your God John, I'm not unable. Can you go back and work on stuff show just for me to help me. So no, there's no falling out. There's no Secret Story. Just they just stopped booking me and I hope one day you start going back even off once every six months would be nice. I did like I love Stephanie and I really am so appreciate the help she gave me early on because of going on her show a lot got me on the radar at SiriusXM. They knew who I was because Stephanie and I'll never forget here. I'll never forget your theme song we deal we do. We don't know I think the world of her and I appreciate you helping and you know, I look at this career you do this. I bet who knows in six months from now. I might be back on all the time and she looking on my show it's different. It's at night. She wants to sleep, you know after birth. To come on the show all the time, but I used to get around once or twice but I would gladly go back on her show whatever she wants and you know, you know, I gotta say thanks so much for doing the show and took one last question and then I'll let you go cuz I have a Lincoln's Bible coming up next, you know, you know l v. I know that I know on Twitter. I don't know the person I've seen the stuff but yeah, well, you know, you know, she's coming up next but how do you think we're going to do in, Georgia? I think it's going to be really really close to the people have any friends in Georgia. Please encourage them to vote. This is the most important senate elections of Our Lives. Now, I'm not being hyperbolic it is because it's rare that long to seat some reason you don't have that just one is filling an empty term and then and then you have control dissent. Look if we lose this the only thing show by it will be able to pass off maybe some infrastructure things a couple of things here and there you want any change you want things better in this country. You have to win that and if people of extra time you can volunteer you go to jostle for rev War knocks home page and it has things you look anywhere in the country. So give you phone numbers you can call in or text people from there or if you got some money they could use the money. It's very tight back. Bob Newhart was on my shown said they just said a ring of Elsa live reading to raise money for John Asif and revenue Warnock and they raised $400,000 and obviously you played the dad of L, but it Will Ferrell was in it and so many from the movie did it off. So it's all-hands-on-deck the guy to win it. It's going to be it's really close. It's going to be neck-and-neck. It'll be a few thousand votes. Yeah. Have you had the Midas touch Brothers on your show yet? The Marvelous maisel Brothers birthdays are doing the Lord's work in Georgia. I mean, they are doing everything on the ground Billboards ads. They're they're having people knock on doors. I mean, I'm doing everything they can write stuff. I didn't know about I've had them on before cuz they had to show on SiriusXM a limited run show and I had them on Election. I had one of my new bed, but I didn't know about this. I'm glad you fly down and not get one of them on for for next day. You know what I'll I'll you know, I'll DM them cuz I was I was like the first show to have them on and and the very grateful and I'll tell them to you know, you know them to reach out to you. All right, that's great. Let them go by George. I know some they've been hold on together once but I'd love to have them on throat about it. And I guess this is my last question for the holiday off. What you know this year nothing because of quarantine but usually go to my half my family's Catholic so we would go my mom's catholic meet up my mom go up to my sister and she could have three grandkids and we have a big Christmas thing up there and have a lot of fun. I really enjoy it when the highlights of the year and this year, you know, my mom is early nineties. She's strong. She's Australian but no one wants to risk getting her sick. So it's going to be a quarantine Christmas and sit home and and you know watch It's a Wonderful Life again, but my fiance and just have a nice dinner, but that's about it. We want to be safe. It's too important for my mom. I don't want to have any spreader events. Yeah. I know. I was going to go out to New York to see my mom for Christmas. But you know what I had dr. Grayson on and then like don't don't it's just not you know, the hospitals are overflowing in New York were over a hundred percent capacity and I saw a graph where at Birth You a hundred percent there over a hundred percent in certain hostels where they're literally making beds that are not not ICU beds. I mean, I see you bets that not overall Hospital. The ICU beds are at capacity in New York. Not just the city in the state wage are really on the edge of really ugly this year on the statement. And you know, I'll tell you then and then I'll let you go. I'm sorry. Sorry. I'm just you know, I can't stop you know, if there is an option that I have Dean on and I love having you up but I mean I have Republican friends who who sit I know and they sit there and argue with me and say that all the hospitals are empty. This is all load of BS and you know, the closing of the restaurants and bars is all Bs. The hospitals have money is plenty of birds. They don't they don't they can look up the statistics but facts don't matter to some of them we needed the same people who thought Hillary Clinton was running a child sex ring. Pizza parlor Obama was born in Kenya. She went out his real and Kobe to host. What do you say to that? I mean, I'm not getting how are you how trumpets call my show and I I try to be civil enough being rude to what I'm saying. What you're saying is factually wrong and no no no. No, I'll say where did you read it and it always comes up. It's like a Breitbart or even off like a friend sent me an email chain. That doesn't make it correct that you've got to look at the sources. I can say to my liberal brothers and sisters. Sometimes I get emails from them and it's a blonde but some person like you've got to look at the source critical thinking means checking out the source making sure it's accurate we care about that on the left much more underwrite. They just want facts they confirm their beliefs. That's what they're talk radio is all about and it's very hard like we want to learn we want to get smarter. They want to celebrate idiocy. It's the difference between our parties together. So well said Dina, I just want to just give you a, here good as gold. Thanks for the 5G.

I like what Jane had to say about it's time to to start laughing a little bit cuz it's been a really intense. For years and we have a very intense holiday ahead of us this it's going to be bad you guys december-january. We're at 0% of ICU beds and all of Southern California 18 million people. Yep million people know I know and you know, you know, I will say is that was a hard that was a hard turn. I had to watch that when you have like good presidents like Obama Clinton, they they age in office, you know, because so much work and and the age everybody head everybody did but the Trump presidency. He didn't age we all did we had to deal with his lunacy? Yeah, and he's not even working not that he ever was no scripting the whole time. But he's just not it's just past the point of like even pretending to have anything on the schedule. He doesn't even it's not that on his schedule. He doesn't give a fuck. He doesn't care that you know that he doesn't give a fuck. Excuse my language. Sorry Mom and my God, I'm sorry for your loss the mother famous. Yeah. I love your mom. Okay, so, you know It's it's a it's a really pathetic thing. This man did not know how to do this job. He was not interested in doing this job. He wasn't interested in learning how to do the job. He doesn't care about us. He's never catch us. He's never cared about this nation cuz he's a foreign outfit. I know he's a criminal money-laundering for organized crime and he's in he's in the office. It's nothing has changed and these are the stakes everybody. This is what it looks like. That's why I was listening to Tina you a little bit and it was like nobody knew it was going to be this bad. Actually those of us who study organized crime and know what the world is at. This man was born into we all knew I can't believe it's not worse. I gotta be honest with you. I cannot believe it's worse. I think we're getting off lucky here. I do. I don't know. I mean Geralyn. Thanks for the five bucks. He says worth the price of admission and twenty bucks. Please tell her the narrative off. Last night with Greg Zev, and all was fantastic and very found that the end. Oh good. So you get some love here from the stuttering jet pack, but we do cross over. I think the audience is a little bit which is great and I just love how informed everybody is and I just want everyone to know where I can't see the the chats that you're seeing John but you guys keep us on our toes. It's pretty great. Right? They're they're they're smart and they're and they care and then they break they bring the conversation up all and I'm so appreciative of that. Yeah. I'll tell you I'll beat I have like, you know, a very proud of of the people that I participate and watch the show because they are very smart and they have great A lot of times. I don't have to ask my own questions because they have such great questions and no way Jose. I mean what like wait a minute. What am I doing on you guys get on here, you know? Yeah. Yeah, it's great. It's great and it's kind of I think everyone should feel very proud that you know, I'm not like Dave knows his politics, you know, I wasn't a political person. I'm still not really a political person. I care about saving this nation and our institutions give me but you know, it wasn't like, oh this party and this platform and I just wasn't that person but I knew who this guy was. I saw him get in. I knew what he was surfacing from day one, right what he was waking up in this nation. Coming down that escalator that the stuff that came flying out of his face like oh no, he's waking the Beast right? Yep, and the tools that he had available to help him were in an age now where you can drill down into demographics across our nation and activate people in a way that we've never no one in town has ever been able to do that before it's very dangerous. You know, Facebook is dangerous these profiles that everyone has access to and the way they can segment bucket US based on our interests are likes our impulses our brain chemistry our politics our prejudices all of that can be weaponized so that the nation tears itself apart. Would you know what we don't want to participate in the in that cuz then our enemies just sit back and go. Well that was fucking easy. Right? We didn't have to fire one shot. We don't have to page Teddy resources. We just had to stoke all these Flames. Yeah and and let them tear themselves apart. So it's it's it's very it's very dangerous. Um, NLP a lot of work ahead. We have a lot of work ahead John turkovich ostovich postage. I don't know. He says first time here who was lb and which is going to be my next question. You were the one you were one of the first ones who were like who exposed Donald Trump's connections to the Mob and Russia right and that you know off the connection because it's it's the same story. Yeah, so you have to tell the story of the underworld. So who am I I'm a screenwriter just so you know, I'm Anonymous in my name, but that will all end wage. It started as something to really protect myself cuz I was actually exposing what I knew about him on Twitter was a whole story about all that will tell that I don't want to keep telling that but maybe it'll tell it a different form and do do a good proper job and then that could be answered for everyone so I can stop have an answer it but you know, I was being protective of my identity trying to blow a whistle and the channel switch in the entertainment industry. We don't have whistleblowing channels for oh that guy's in a mobster just so right we can we can do our art That's How We Do It. Um and it is some this he has powerful friends this guy, right? And so but here's people were getting threatened and people were getting shot down that we're trying to talk about who and what he was I wasn't the only one. I'm just the one who went into Twitter and I was like, okay. Well, this is his Battleground. I'll go here and I'll tell people Here and start showing you guys the receipt to say no, you know, there's been a lot written on Donald and organized crime, but it's more important to understand the world of organized crime and where it intersects with intelligence the world of intelligence. And when you look at things from that perspective of Russia looking at what age what is their world of intelligence and organized crime and how intersection how it overlaps you can understand that if Donald Trump got into business with a really dangerous mobster Russian mobster, that means he's also being owned and controlled by Russian intelligence services and that's what we're looking at. But here's what I need to know from you because now you see Putin again is is messing with us and now this and now the cyber-hacking and guess what? Yep Trump doesn't denounce Putin at all instead. There's Russia Russia Russia. It's all a hoax. Yeah. I was already singing that song that Russia is cyber high and it's dangerous, but our president won't announce Russia and Putin what gives they own him. He's an asset. You guys we elected a fucking for and fucking asset. Oh and by our enemies as president United States and everything that we're watching everything we've been through is about that. Yeah, I mean it's but it's hard to wrap your mind around and believe it's like well, he was a reality star. He was a real estate guy when he talked about. It's like you don't think they know who to Target off. What do what do people think? What do you think because there's a movie it's fucking real life. Go talk to the intelligence experts. They will tell you exactly how this works. Yeah, the enclosure Watts. Thanks for the $5. Would you be surprised if Trump fell out any story window in the next five years, they'll be no. I mean, I mean look, he didn't denounce the bounties that Putin put on American soldiers now, he's not denouncing Putin for cyber-hacking us what the fuck is wrong with this guy and like you said, he's owned right? It's an asset. You can keep asking it and I'll keep saying it and it'll it hits you in waves trust me it hits you in waves, but they owed him. He's Julie. What else what he's he's doing what he's supposed to be doing. This is what he's supposed to be doing for them. And he's doing it Porsche pain. Thanks for the five bucks house Parks went home. You know, I've been I had to relate so I hope you don't mind that I I have how come on with us. I'll be oh, come on in hell. Hey, hey, it's nice to be here. Thanks very much. Same size. How are you? This is a pleasant surprise out cuz i i d m do a while back and I asked you to come on and they never got back to me. So I did I did that's what the whole yep meme. Yep in my people speak. I don't speak what language Speaking with this thing, man. Listen Okay, when I say yep means yes means send link gonna meet you there, man, and you're not doing it with hugs. When did you write? Yep to be this morning? Cuz I was on a hike so I didn't see it. Oh that's in my thought that you're hiding like saying. All right guys, because you're running from your problems. And so you externalized that into the world and that's your exercise while the rest of us are lifting the heavy shit. You're you're walking. All right fine. I do know how hiking is my problem affecting hate every second. I see so you're you like hanging and and and you're okay. All right. Well, that's good to know. All right, so so I was just took an l v as you know has was was one of the first to exposed Trump and and with Russia. Yep, I just asked I'll be like what the hell Trump is not even going down. Sounds Putin on on the cyber-hacking on what are you are you kidding on his way out the door when he's lost and the only Lifeline he has is Russian money through laundered through Deutsche Bank and other sources. Why would he turn on Russian now? As a matter of fact, I would go so far as to say that his Pentagon loyalists that he's been kro bearing into the dod and other agencies are specifically there to keep this hack from being discovered or acted upon just a little while longer. Yeah, but but then why is Pompeo admitting that it's not? All right. Yeah, so is performative are they just think about Pompeo as a performance and then it all off is planning a future in politics. Oh God. Yeah. He's a Coco Brothers guy's yeah. I don't know how much coke he does. Usually not that puffy when you've done that kind of code. Ya Koch brothers, right? Yep. Yeah, no, he's got a he's got a long-term plan that involves politics in his mind. It's I think is it Governor then president? Is that what he thinks his fantasy, you know football team diversion of his future is where he whatever his wife wants is what I'm starting to get out of this if she wants to go on a trip around the world going on a trip around the world, but she wants to have parties and be you know be a social matriarch, then they're having parties and being a social. I think it's whatever my co pay us why my boss I want to go to one of those parties where we have like canapes and everybody's rich and somebody gets sprayed with radioactive stuff and they died like three weeks later in their eyebrows Fallout we go to one of those parties sure wage. Okay, let's do it from another place to eat the the I mean, Okay, that's not even with Pompeo. That's a gluttony joke not even a fat joke the Dude Looks like one of those people who is just always picking and the buffet without washing his hands off. Yeah, because the cartoon for it's it's absurd and the idea that he has any real future in the Republican Party, especially after working for Trump in this current situation other than maybe dirt. He has over other Republicans that he can use the Crowbar himself up higher in that but it's it's a broken ladder anyway, so who cares Trump, you're absolutely right though. I was waiting in the wings while you were talking about him being an asset. He is just so the useful idiot kind, you know, he's not really sickness, but that yeah at some point at some point at some point. He may have been a functional aging the alpha bank and the you know in the basement of of Trump Tower the floors 20 through 43, which were full of Russians running money laundering and and and prostitution and gambling and wage. No and all that stuff, I think he was kind of a wink-and-a-nod thought of himself as a gangster that was involved in that and don't get me started on my my new running theory that giuliani's take to the Mob was simply to give Russia a toehold in New York real estate. That's that's my theory I put online about four years ago. Yeah. I'm with you. Yeah. Yeah. It's like oh this is okay. I mean, it's it's something that starts to Dawn on people, right? So this is a this is why it's very very important to understand the underworld. Okay, I do Donald Trump was born into the underworld Fred Trump was the business front for the Genovese crime family. This is Undisputed when you actually get there and pull it all apart. He was born into the business front for the Genovese crime family when the Russian mafia started really extending coming over and it started off. Seven days, but in the eighties, it was flourishing in a way that that the FBI organized crime division wasn't seeing they weren't understanding that it did took until the 90s in a 90 some really thought there was dangerous people but it was getting real dangerous, right? They formed business relationships business Partnerships with the Genovese crime family and with all of the five families, but primarily the the jet pack and these were gas scams which are multibillion-dollar scams and Deals and truly. What happened was the Russian mob bosses became oligarchs and art birth crime families that they were partnering with got all broken up and disseminated. But if you're going to stay came in and they rolled them the Russians infiltrated us through our underworld and these weren't just gangsters that were coming over by the way brutal brutal. Yeah, well rules, but they were they were intelligent service dog. Folks they were had connections back with intelligence Services. Well, there's a permanent overlap. Yeah, that's like me to get they took the assets. Donald Trump was an asset that they took a s s h a t right? Yeah. I'm a sad as well. Right so I don't even I actually don't know and I had a a very good source tell me that Donald doesn't even own Trump Tower any more and has a very much time. He has his there's a two hundred million dollar loan due on that building in two years. He doesn't have it and understand. It's a whole other level it's not that this guy was just New York was a sky. Okay. I want to mimic some gangsters have nothing against some gangsters. He's a business but he's the maid of the mob. He's their property and their properties the country buying in this circumstance. This is an historic. That's the story Juliana starting out yet, but he was giuliani's woke. Operation for four years he's cuz he he had the goods on all of the you know, he became when he developed his stuff in Manhattan. He had to the whole deal around that Trump Tower to begin with was a concrete deal. And that was a he was moving out of territory that was jammed control character and wanted to develop and Gambino our own territory. And so for the first time it was really that deal and Fred and Roy Cohn orchestrated this 4020 Selena was at the time the head of Genovese crime family. And Paul Castellano was at the time the head of the Gambino family formed a joint venture in order for that Tower to be built long as you were crossing territory one mob families asset was trying to develop an another mob families controlled territory. And this is how that can happen and the basis of that dog. And this gets into John Cody and all stuff right the basis of that deal became the structure of the commission and the commission trials are what Rudy Giuliani Made Them Bones on that was the lopping off of all the crime families, right? Well, they they were working together under an organizational structure that got set up by Roy Cohn and Fred track an order for Donald Trump to build his goddamn gross that grossed our right that concrete he's at the heart of the whole thing. You think he hasn't been giuliani's asset the whole time? Oh, no, here's what I what I think. I think they're all gangster, right? He is Mob property. That's what I'm saying. The difference though. My my opinion is there's a difference between being the useful idiot and functionally living off the mob then being an actual gangster. None of this was Trump's idea name is Dad did it with Roy Cohn and all this stuff Trump is just a delivery system and there's nothing about him where he was playing fourth level chess and as part of this entire thing. He's just a beneficiary and one of the biggest things he's benefited from is that the the entire Manhattan real estate system is so primed up and mobbed up with both American, you know, money laundering and foreign money that they start pulling it a thread the whole thing falls apart. And so he's avoided any kind of trouble by being involved if he was in Florida real job. State and Miami or something when there was coke deals going around and stuff the Miami real estate as far as towers and buildings and stuff isn't as big a deal thanks to hurricanes shit comes and goes all the time. So nobody's got you know, the the Cuban Mafia the you know, the like the coke dealership Columbia Bob has there been because they have their anchor babies off the power in Miami, right? But but nobody has a death grip on it. And so you can go and go. Well it's one building who cares but almost all of Manhattan has some sort of web of buried money supporting it at one time or another because the expense it's just I mean every building with maybe maybe Rockefeller Center and the park and the but everything else and certainly all the apartment buildings. So yeah Trump is basically benefited from the fact that if you really got in and Dug Dug down into the criminality going on there, especially around real estate the whole school. He falls apart billions if not trillions of dollars layered in debt upon themselves becomes this monstrous undertaking and it would take the entire budget of New York state to just go after sure the skeezy real estate deals not separate the Jeffrey Epstein got an apartment for $70 appointment for a dollar and separate the sex trafficking and the gambling and all the other crap that they're doing and killing people for concrete separate all that is the buying and selling of the condos in Trump Tower, you know, people buying the same condo twice a month, you know over buying it buying a row like a 4 apartments in a row and nobody's in them. You know, it's the same thing. He does with his hotels in a more permanent sense. But ultimately that does that off a crime syndicate, right? But he doesn't do it because it's his idea or he's he knows what's going on and the minute they decide he's over what's going on, but he is he is a moron he's dead. You can be aware that a chess game is going in front of you, but have no fucking idea. What a bishop does. That's what I'm talking about. He can listen any asshole can look at it off. Oh, yeah, they're playing chess. What's chess? I don't fucking know look at it's a bunch of little things. I don't know some side wins. The white side is good. I like them. That's how Trump Woodview chess but he doesn't know how it works. But my point is know how some stuff works. So here how I want to I want it. I want to see it at one point or this just consider this though when it comes to him specifically, you're right about Iraq, you know, the the the insanity of you start pulling apart at the real estate in New York. The whole thing goes, right? What do you put everybody in jail, right? It's yes the scale and the scope of it is unfathomable. However, With this man specifically with Donald specifically he has another thing going out with him. That's even more Sinister and dark when it comes to why he was never prosecuted witches with he's a rat. Oh, okay. Yeah, but even then again that's what a low level gangster done just like Jeffrey Epstein so it's interesting you brought his name had cards that he could play right off and so he played them and he didn't get prosecuted. Hold on protecting a powerful people. It was I'll tell you. All right, you want to know here's here's a crime syndicate, you know, here's a really big black crime syndicate. That's that I you know with some, you know people over and I said, maybe even a terror Network and here you go, right? Why what was the whole, you know, you got to look at Felix Sater and really look at the wage is like well, he did have a sama Bin Laden's contact information and he also was involved with some Cosa Nostra mobsters. And you know, how did you have both of these things? And it's like God because it's the crime syndicate and he he's not a super spy, right? He's an informant. They caught him. He's in the middle of the crime syndicate and he started giving him names and give it a month. And they used him our daughter. Who was I think the biggest in terms of what I've looked at. And and and if you want to look at the most dangerous dead guy's first of all, he was part of that whole commission trial taking out those those heads of those five families, but beyond that I think probably for me and from my research and I look at it and people have different opinions, but the most dangerous gangster and criminal Global criminal. I think that he ever lived on was a guy named by Osceola volkov or a little Japanese and this was a very brutal and Sinister Russian mafia boss and also a lieutenant and Associate of simian mobile a of each month. He had he was had an office in in Trump organization, you know business cards and all of that, although there's all this denial around it and he lauded a lot of money through Trump Taj Mahal, and yep. Almost caught him once at Taj and got away and then they had to I think they found him in his girlfriend saying they arrested him and his his it's an astounding case. If you read up on it and read the Case Files you really indictment and you read even the court testimonies and there was expert testimony by Bob levenson on Ivanka. Bob levenson was the former FBI field agent and private consultant that that ended up being kidnapped in cash Iran, and I'm sorry guys. That's my they've got they've got your number. We have your number we can make your phone ring it anytime your garage door just opened. I don't know if you know this off his mask aping the fulfilling my work my husband, but but I think everyone should just really look at look at the case. Look at a bar, Look at all of what that song. No and look at him right now. I don't think I don't think we're in disagreement about any of this other than I the severity with which I insist that Donald Trump was effectively useless as a functional member of a gang but very functional as a as an intentional rat Outsource meaning like with Giuliani in the like if you want to get rid of if you want to get the feds off your back, what you do is you give up some local guys and you make it look like a big deal and then they go well, they're busting it up. It's fine and they you know, they don't go any deeper because like I said New York real estate so she can look like oh my God, you did this huge thing. When really all you did was Shuffle the heads around that they were ready to shuffle around. Anyway, I hear you, but I'm saying to you it is darker and deeper than where you're at. It's worse than when you're at how is really bad? No. No. No the people the people you're talking about seder and the rest of those people a bath. Lutely, Trump himself is an on a moral level that you're absolutely right but on a functional level, he's not playing this fourth-degree chat with any of these assholes. He is he's he's a useful idiot on two tiers for at one point giuliani's crowd and then largely for the Russian mob for a long time and and these never been a functional asset on the board. He's he's got he's basically a single-source Miss missile and they send them out when they need it. And and that's what he's been in office. All he's done is run interference for Russia and South Asia. He's just it's it's it's it's a very it's it's a it's a tough thing because he is so stupid and he is such a massive addict right. Got that complicating thing. So and he's just so morally gross and he's impulse can't control it and God only knows what's going on with his brain now and all of that just is just wanted Maggie Haberman is just a game. Is reporting right now, but he just had a meeting with Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell remember who he fired and and Genova and his wife in in there is a bunch of shouting and wailing and gnashing of teeth. But then he wanted to hire as he thought Sidney Powell to be a the special prosecutor to go after two C's election machines and go after, you know overturn the election from within the White House as if that's how special prosecutors work and and Mike Flynn was in the meeting as well and supposedly Mike Flynn. He was asking Mike Letta black hole. What if we send the military and what you were saying? He's asking these people in such a way that you and his staff is even the staff that is, you know stuck with him through all this stuff off. It's going yeah that's illegal. You're going to go to that's just dumb that's no one is going to go for that. And if you try its it is the you are a Target wage. Now on you there's a point where your criminality will jump the shark and they have spent so much time trying to tap him back from that moment that moment where the the entirety of the Republican and Democratic establishments go jail, you know, and they and he's edged on it. I mean, especially for the last what he's been riding up on two wheels with two flats for so long and they've been people just you know hammer in the hood trying to keep them from rolling. This is this is who I'm talking about. I don't know if he ever I mean I knew who called Forbes and talked his way onto the you know top 100, you know, the Forbes 100 list that guy At a certain point you have to go maybe that guy is not good at three card Monte. Maybe I'm just a gullible fuc who bets on card games on the subway and that's from a song real standpoint, you know weaponizing two things one Donald Trump as the three card Monte guy who has one deal. He can always flip the card. He's knows that game. He's been doing it a whole life because everything is a fraud and and more weaponizing the idiocy and the gullibility of a certain swath of the public. Wow. Yeah, Mark Burnett for let let me save let me say this is going to do a show came back with the idea for the song this real quick. Okay to give how this right? Yes. I'm not going to argue, which I'm not saying what I'm trying to what I'm trying to bring into the conversation and it's perhaps too long. Us and there needs to be another conversation about is that was he made and that was it? Yeah, pretty much was he who was he he does he have all these impulse control issues is does he identify people as marks and play them as a comment and his he also a very easy Mark for for very foreign intelligence gangsters right for a mid-life is Mitch. McConnell's Mark, right? Yes. I'm giving you all of that. Right is HE capable of playing fourth dimensional chess in this conflict know how what I'm saying is off his level of involvement in the Underworld and his knowledge of events and his his ability to play an instrumental role. Even if it is a blunt tool is when all I do believe eventually all of this stuff is so much to like right is going to blow everybody's Minds dead. He's not just a clown. He's not no, he's alive. He's he's the clown. He's the third clown in the beginning of Batman wage. When the Joker is the last one and the only one that survives he's definitely one of the clowns and he definitely knows his part in the in the grift but he ain't the guy and that's my point of Ali and his entire his entire. Mythology is based on him being the guy not you know, we all know him as Putin's puppet. We all know that he's mobbed up like crazy but he's basically an ineffective. He's a doorknob. He's a fucking doorknob. He opens the right doors if you shake him hard enough, but he's not the the guy who built the door and his Mastermind know and he never will be and not going to outlive his usefulness to these people. We already had yeah as many people do and that's when it all comes down because they can gain a lot by giving him up. Okay, no wait. I just want to get into this first second and throw it is my show employer. Yeah. Hey John, I didn't realize William and he'll be good as gold says can can you repeat the name of the guy who we sold out it? I'd like to read the article. Was it a little Japanese or something if I also love and cough little actually Banco was his birth his sort of his nickname. Okay. Now I want to just change the subject for a second because this is something that I don't know if either one of you know about but I had at least summary Quran. She's an attorney and she wrote a great article and I would love to get both of your opinions and I'll start with L B. Yes, because I was good but long and I wanted to talk about feed America to John let's make sure we we make it, cuz well forget will forget. Yes. Okay, okay. So she states and this is something new how that that you and I haven't talked about and they'll be this is the first that that it's the that wage. Kamala Harris doesn't need Mitch McConnell to bring a bill to a floor. It can be any Senator as long as one other Senator backs that person up he took it only started in nineteen thirty-seven right where the majority leader was given this power but it's not part of the Constitution. So essentially, Harris doesn't say you don't need to win those two votes to bring them to the floor as long as the bill will pass. Absolutely and that's really what what Mitch McConnell's wall has been is that he's he refuses to bring back to the Ford that will pass because it will show that a good portion of Republicans actually agree with the bills. The Democrats are putting forward and there goes their entire, you know, electoral mythology. Yep. No you agree with that. I mean because this is yeah good. I knew when when Greg was working with Lisa to do this article. He was talking to me about it. I'm like, oh that sounds amazing. And and of course I read it and if you pay attention to Lisa, she's like, okay challenge me everybody and she's right. No one can find it actually is in the Constitution. The president of the Senate does have the ability to bring that's actually who has the authority to bring bills to the floor of the Senate rules have kind of given that to majority leader. But again, this is one of those things where it's actually Machado has been taking taking sort of advantage of a norm and abusing a norm but it's not something that's in the Constitution so that he has all this he just block everything the vice president and I know I never heard didn't going there. I know people go their rules. Why didn't fight him when he was VP. Why did he use his power? Well, it doesn't occur to people to break these Norms. I'm sorry. Yeah, and and I don't want this to turn into everybody all of a sudden attacking Joe Biden weight training interesting and only arsehole a Greg only Aarhus and when it puts us out of jail, and he will keep doing this and he is a friend of mine and I love everyone's gotta support my Greg is doing because he's on this mission of like Dems. Don't try shit Republicans as horrible as they are. They'll try anything to break shit. And do you know or do get their way Dems? Don't try stuff. They just go. Okay. So he's they don't show for the record pause on that idea for them. They pass during reconciliation and a good portion of what Obama got passed through actually went through the entire legislative process through a lot of strong-arming and and legislative some cases tricks, but eventually made it to the floor because of that they try an immense level of things. They just don't executive order as much as they could or try executive like attacks because they value the house dog. And the individual vote representation idea more cuz that's the root of the idea of the bar. But but I'm going to try this because cuz Mikata has been abusing power total package looking at when you're in the face of someone abusing power the way this man is abusing power and you have a criminal presidency and a criminal GOP at reason they're plotting a fucking suck. Oh, come on everybody, right? This is an anti Democratic party. Now, that's what that's what it's at its core. It is a fascist party. It is about that. It's about power at all costs and it's also about putting language in there to make, you know, the other side kind of grab onto things and run it so they're doing a lot of really bad Sinister stuff with propaganda. It's not okay what Thursday party is about and what it's doing. And so when you have that level of abuse going on with criminality at the core and and real treason as well, you know, yep. Calling the Rochester fucking attack is like this then you know what, you gotta exercise the powers given to you guys are different. Yes, then. Yeah, and and that's what Greg is meeting is like we spoke with this kind of shit. We better try Paul every bow out of your quiver. Well ya know and and one of the things that Greg and Lisa telling me I couldn't because I asked the question why didn't Obama do this with Garland and one of the reasons it because Obama for Hillary is going to win. Yeah, and I didn't want to set up. They do Supreme Court Justices and you know, he was the first African-American party. I mean African American president, so he didn't want to you know become you know what I mean? He had a lot more weight on his shoulders electoral e than anyone else was like legalizing pot. He was the last president that can legalize pot because of the the messaging about blacks and we'd that's been going on forever. But literally he's not the guy who can do it. That's you take some people's power Away by simply them being in the first to do it. And and that's absolutely right. They definitely thought Hitler was going to go off. She didn't release the dossier. It's why Christopher Steele took the dossier to the FBI because literally yeah. Well, it had already been referred to the FBI. He also went off McCain brought walked it in but but when she got it Washington examiner paid Christopher Steele to go do the dirt dig up because they were backing other Republicans cuz they were straight up and conservative paper down and then when he won they were like well, we're just going to go with him we're fine and and so Christopher Steele went to the Clinton campaign and said you want to buy this. This is Oppo research. I did for them. It's valid stuff. I'm not going to show you what's in it until you pay for it. But here's it gave it to them and they went we can't give this out cuz it's all just peeing on beds and it's gross and we know about some of the other stuff but we can't go there. We think we're going to win on the merits. Anyways, thank you very much, and he freaked out. To the FBI took it to John McCain. John McCain referred it to his friends the FBI. And I mean it all died cuz Rod Rosenstein wouldn't allow them to look into Trump's money. So but ultimately the Rubicon thing in there. One thing is a Fusion GPS and Crystal are not the same thing. No Fusion CBS with one looking for all the my Christian got paid and he was freaking out. Yes as a Former Intelligence officer and he saw how compromised Donald Trump really was and who owned him and his hair was on fire and he was running around going. Oh, I love it. I love all the Trump biased talk. Everybody's so biased everything gets really fucking buying a minute. They see all this shit then, you know even people who are Republicans are suddenly biased against Trump and like I'm not biased I I thought you were a lovely park ranger until I saw that the evidence that you were the BTK killer, you know, you know what I mean? Like BTK was a Boy Scout leader in a deacon at his church in a park ranger. So was everybody who discovered his you know, Thursday, The stuff that was on the computer disk that led back to his house where they suddenly biased against him or do they just hate Park Rangers? It's not me. They're attacking. It's all Park Rangers. That's a trump. They're going down because they want to stop you that BS and yeah lb. Yeah, cuz I want you to plug this Feed the World thing. So please do right now and now it's not it's not a it's not really a plug but you want me to bring it up. I'm bringing this up for a friend of mine who was on the phone with yesterday and he's like, you know, we need we need some creative thinking with some big moves for Americans right now because what we're going to go through in the next within the next 3 months 2 to 3 months and he said, you know, and so he had this idea. He said can you look at this and I haven't had a lot of time to look at it. So I'm asking the audience to look into this. There is a hashtag hashtag feed off. Cut and I think people are just putting it with anything. That's about going to food banks or what maybe what a chef Jose does. Although it's not his hashtag. And so my friend was like can put a hashtag feed America going with the idea that why can't for the restaurant industry is suffering. We're going to lose so many jobs going to these people are losing their businesses and losing these restaurants off and we now can't go back in the restaurants because they're surgeons happening again off the charts. So is there a way to push our lawmakers and I know they're so crazy right now and they're all going on vacation, but I think it's going to be necessary even come January 20th right to actually get it to where the restaurants are getting a huge bailout with money, but the money is for them to stay in business and what they need to do is make meals healthy meals and Eddie American can go by the restaurants are signed up to it and just get a healthy meal and you have no questions asked you need some food you go get some food you go get a healthy month. And that's and we're saving the restaurant industry while at the same time feeding America and dealing with this real prices because $600 of for this whole I'm so outraged purchase price. I'm glad you brought that up. I'm like, I'll start getting into tears about this and and I know this may seem like an unrelated rant, but it's not you guys miss going to hook me up. So I am in the in the industry all most of my friends people. I've known for decades now our Industries fucking hurting bad are losing they're losing everything and I'm talking about not like not just you know writers. We've had a really hard go of it but and directors and the cruised famous people but you know, it's the cruise. It's the it's the secondary things and so and I know everybody you have whatever opinion want to have about Tom Cruise, but God bless Tom Cruise really Raven at people off. Really? Oh, yes, that's you need to hear in his rant. What you need to hear in his rent is the pressure of an entire industry and I know all industry sectors are feeling this but we're about to lose our industry and you heard him the responsibility on his shoulders right. Now those movie sets that Tom Cruise is on this big action sets and he's responsible for them. Those are dangerous sets. Okay, everybody else, you know, they do do real explosions and car chases. I have friends that are the biggest fucking stuff performers in the world and their company and this is a it's a no joke and yeah, we are real working. We work long hard in this industry have whatever kind of right-wing their whole horseshit. Dan Crenshaw things. You can come and his stupid fucking fake, you know, we're going to push my birthday and I want you to rant about that that that ridiculous. I'm going to land on the hood of the car. Like I'm I'm a you know, Mission Impossible fuck that guy, you know people there's just like to carry out. Insurance on a movie set is huge if there's ever an injury. It's a big deal because that's how fucking professional people are seriously they take it and how well trained they are and how well thought out this all this care. So he's right that that's just to talk about that once I think so now we have a pandemic now you insert into the situation a pandemic life that makes us set dangerous and people will lose their lives. We have lost a D's we have lost people. Yeah and like they sets you know, and they have to have be able to carry the insurance to be able to have these sets. The whole world is watching these movies that are being filmed in made right now thousands of thousands of thousands of jobs and an entire industry sitting back behind and oh my God, please figure this out. Please figure out how to make a movie right now. So people could not lose their homes so that we could get back to work so we can open sets up again. Yeah if production. Yep. Was shut down? Yeah, we're a mask. Right? No, we can't we can't have this, you know know and it is I'm sure he was on the phone not that's the pressure that supposed effects every month. And that's just our industry. Yeah, and you know, these are these are you know, he's he had I mean a lot of those things, you know, I'm I've been above and below-the-line and but like I've toggled the line live I've directed episode what that means how they don't above the line is yours a known entity in it. You're either producer director writer actor in something and below. The line is all the crew like the boom operator the key grips all the people who actually do the that sort of the month ago heavy lifting of it the the stunt teams all that kind of stuff. I've done both. I've been in every category at some point or another in my career literally another choice. Mine budget you guys it's not about you know levels. It's just it's just it's a phrase that came out of how you do your production line budget. That's right. Yeah, exactly and and it's also it's the distinction is especially when it comes to actors and especially when it's somebody like Tom Cruise who is the pinpoint the the the tip of the Spear of the actual production that if he goes down everybody loses their job and everybody if if the lighting guy is sick for three days, they get a new lighting guy to fill in and he comes back in and he can talk them while he's getting over whatever he's getting over but they continue filming and everybody else who works Transportation the catering the the actual camera crew. Everybody keeps working. That's right. I'm going to plug in my computer just accidentally came unplugged so you keep track how I'm just going to go no problem. Yeah. So the important thing I want I wanted to get to the point and she was making about the pressure you hear from him and his voice is that he doesn't get to get sick. In that production and what happens is if they spread it to each other and they're like screw it will get through. It's nothing to do better and it spreads to anybody in the cast him or his co-stars the movies suck everybody loses their job. If and that's just if they get sick, they could lose eight to ten days or or 24 days depending on if they get it and they quarantine and then get sick and on and on like that, you know, he's aware of that more than anyone. I myself have worked sick. I know everybody every actor on a series who's a lead on a series at any time has done multiple episodes ill simply because if you can't work no one works, right and on and that that's not even with the part where your mom to get your fellow crewmates, sick your fellow castmates at your own family. If this is even at a level of if that production gets shut down then no one gets in, New Jersey. Action everywhere can be open so he really does have the whole way to the industry everybody who's running a production has a whole way to the interview Elders. I don't know if everybody the chats understand wage what Tom Cruise was ranting about he was renting it should be wearing a mask. They were too there were people gathering around the video Village which is where you watch playback and that stuff and there were a bunch of there were a bunch of crew people choice and a few of them weren't wearing masks and they were all shoulder-to-shoulder and that would have they have a person on set from insurance because of the size of that production that yeah, seeing that if they chose to act on it would have shut them down that day that moment that second whether any of those people tested positive or not because there are days before you might taste test positive there's days before you might be symptoms. There's rules for that's just like rules for if you're going to have an explosion on the set. There's rules for if there's a pandemic and you're trying to shoot. That's right. So we're facing Tom Cruise Rampage. Just just screamed at them. He he said that they were going to they were endangering the entire industry. Oh, you gotta hear the red I sent it to you in the in the office because we weren't we're a mess right that's and masks there was a great a big part of this was is that it's not just this, you know, the industry is in trouble right now, but the idea of will we go back to movie theaters when this is all done. And and by the way, by the way spoiler alert, we will ever as a matter of fact movie theatres are going to be more busy after this than ever before because people are going to want to get out of their goddamn house that live shows and movies and and gathering places will be more crowded. Look at the twenties right after the Spanish Flu same thing happen, the wrong twenties were partly called that because people needed to be out without masks living amongst each other not worried anymore that the fact that this vaccine will work its way into the public and by next Thursday. Christmas like will be the worst Black Friday we've ever seen because it'll be a bum rush of people storming Best Buy and punching each other in the face on I'm telling you I'm telling me. Well, I yes and he's shooting a movie right now that will come out next summer in an actual theater after this. Has passed. We're we're having to put movies on TV for a little while just so they don't pass them shelf life. So the sequel we've already shot or in the process of shooting only want to shoot can come out on schedule. So the you know, all these like the MCU is moving ahead without it said, you know during this and they were so lucky to have finished at the infinity Wars kind of idea before this all hit because a lot of these they've stumbled into this but the point I'm trying to make is he's making a movie right now with the intention of this is going to be Next Summer's Blockbuster and they might be the only game in town. This Mission Impossible. There's how many giant block Busters. Can you shoot when you get the green light in February, right? How many can you get done and out and made with big effects like Fast and Furious level effects or Jurassic Park like effects and get it out in time for a July Fourth weekend with almost none. And so the fact that they're shooting one right now means that not only could Mission Impossible, you know, make its date and actually be in theaters, but because of the nature of the industry right now, it could be the biggest Blockbuster of the mission impossible series, if not the biggest movie of the summer because there aren't going to be any other summer movies coming out and people desperately want to go to the movie theater. So not only is he feeling the normal pressure of this has to get done but all of it could be on the line with this. This could be the wage. Just opening Tom Cruise has ever had in his life. And that's a huge thing to say and it's all on him and his company with his part producing partner, but for a couple of Dimes rubbed together our financing all of it. Like to the tune of eighty million dollars in the middle is it was done and and it's but again again yes entire industry everybody. All of those jobs are I please get it, right? Oh my God. Yeah, right. Please. Don't please don't fuk up. Please make them sleep and there are other Productions going on. I'm not saying this is the only way it's not that Blockbuster the only big Blockbuster and I guarantee you he wasn't on the phone with just his Studio exec know it's all of them. It's every head of agency. It's every it's everybody everybody has feeling how's it going? How's it going? Because our industry is suffering. Yeah, and people are scared. Yeah, it's not good. It's not good. So we started this with the song hashtag feed America that's imagine the restaurant industry same thing going on with the restaurant industry. So we gotta save our we gotta save our industries that are part of our culture and our way of life. Or we're not going to come out of this and have anything to go out and eat here, sir. I'm not I don't I don't catastrophe as well. If you don't know that about me already and having been I don't like to spare ribs. No. No, I've been through enough awful in my life and seeing the other side of it that I recognized. You know that we're we're not headed towards Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. We're not we're just search and we offer for Fox sake it's 20 20. We not going through a pandemic in nineteen twenty and even those people partied for forty years afterwards. I mean the sixties same with the Trump crime stuff. I'm like, oh no, he's it's don't worry everybody in the sixties. Look Germany is a nice place to visit right now not something you could say in nineteen thirty-five. I'm just saying, you know life moves on there's anything going on in the world. There are dangers in the world. Then they do come in Ebbs and flows, but the vast majority of life moves on life is kicking deaths ass right now even with covid-19 increasing in population every year. Yep. Is we are living longer healthier and having more access to medicine and all these other things. So let's let's not all catastrophize all at once that said when you're in the problem, you don't walk around and not protect yourself during the problem. It's all the more reason to wear a mask all the more reason to wash your hands all the more reason not to not to kill yourself over tucking covid-19. You're going to die just cuz you want to go to a the you know to a bar during the covid-19 when arguably because of covet in the advances made in mRNA vaccines that are coming because of that have been sitting kind of in the wings, but now they're like, this is our only choice if we're going to get a fast vaccine out that moderna and Pfizer and all these other companies and the first batch just flew in from Belgium. If you'll notice European companies working very hard like everybody else coming up with these ways that they may end up coming with and come up with a multi-use one drop dead. Flu vaccine for your life where you don't get the flu anymore the flu goes away and the flu kills seventy thousand people a year. Well that's productivity. That doesn't go away when people are staying home sick that's dead people that aren't you know, that will still be productive and carry on their lives that's families that are still hold because of grandparents didn't die of the goddamn flu randomly one winter and those things are coming in the next two to five years. They are like, they really really really are and that means more life more people interacting more people needing products and services and and to go off she stuff and do things especially people who've been held back during this time like a giant rubber band. Just waiting. I can't wait to go out. I can't wait to go out. I want to see everybody. I can't wait to hug. You like the orgies our page everybody thought when AIDS ended, you know, the the idea that that you wait till AIDS ends and then where it's going to be ridiculous and then covid-19 did right at the tail end of like hey, we might be prep is actually heard Matrix dead. Yeah, let's make something shorty one says John don't end the show yet. Let these two keep going and and urban says perhaps home and finally try we'd it might slow them down a bit what I want to slow down. I'm trying to pull bar as much life into this mess that I possibly can you page is different how that we were last on a green screen up now this time I'm working so I got like I got my whole setup on the head that it's a Deadpool song ahead and then The Infinity Gauntlet. Yeah, let's hit this again. So it's my actual superhero outfit over there. You can't see it right now good. I can't see that. Yeah, it hit it again to get hit again so I can look up look up anything around feed America. I don't want to appropriate somebody else's thing with a hashtag feed America. I wasn't able to find thing, but that doesn't I didn't have a lot of time and then I can log. Back to cuz it was a studio exec. I was talking to you I can get my friend and and we could see whether or not we want to push for something this idea of let's let's let's bring out our restaurant industry and have them actually feed America because people are you can show up and get a free meal. No questions asked. Yeah, I I would argue that the best thing you could do for money for feeding human beings and keeping restaurants table is actually more bifurcated than that, which is food banks because the volume of cars going by and what you can deliver its just oh, I mean you could have some kicking industry kitchens that are large maybe well, I think my to feed America with that too. It doesn't have to be it doesn't even have to be go by the restaurants. It's always been there as long as you are bills are covered so that they they don't lose their business during this time. Yeah, whether the movement is that they're actually setting up shop where people can drive their cars, you know, whatever it is dead. It looked but just that idea. Yeah good idea bailout industry you but don't stop working restaurant in Jersey. Let's feed the hungry right time of need in the stomach wage completely agree and there's meant and there's multiple ways of doing that. You know, I I work with project angel food and have for a long time originally designed to bring hot meals to people with who are suffering with h i v and we're dying of AIDS and they were they were you know, basically just Sheltering at home. Nobody wanted to be around them. So we brought them hot meals and and I really I I install the sink in the in the in the upgraded kitchen that they built for themselves when it actually started to turn into something and now it you know, it's millions of meals a year and it's going into a pilot program for the State of California and something similar to that could expand and contract around disasters. So even looking past this it and this is where I go into like wage. Is that one adult become acts as president? I'm just going to give you my my first one hundred days as president Hal is you moving in with your staff you establish over there. That's all I need you establish over the next four years your staff charts out all holidays. All Gatherings all messaging around those things. That's kind of the general tone and tenor of it. So you're hitting all these important points and you know, you never miss one and you are always on top of that. Then you strategically look at every one of the fifty states in subcategories of Education food insecurity homelessness and and whatever and educational challenges would be the four I would actually act on but you know any you pick your own wage and you established a strategy by quarter on each one that we're going to tackle each of these things in each quarter even beyond what else is going on. So life happens School shooters happen wage. Can hurricanes that's going to happen and you also have a plan for we're going to have hurricanes. There's going to be a hurricane season. One of them's going to be worse than the next. We don't know which one's going to be the worst. But in the four years, I'm here third was probably going to fucking suck and these other two will have to work with and the fourth one will be surprisingly. Like I don't know but we plan for a strategic Readiness that's always there so that you can just flip on a switch a standard attack is already there. And then you work with ancillary groups in case of emergency the expansive aspect of that. That's the norm of it so bad hurricane we deal with on the state level FEMA and me and then if it's really bad, we operate the two other states next door will help people stay for awhile feed them house them and we have that plan set up and you just do that way you you set your people to do that shit and get ready for it. And if it doesn't happen you got leftover money at the end of your presidency what could be worse? But the the point is you focus on things, you know are going to be approved. And like the food insecurity aspect of covid-19. The food insecurity aspect of of covid-19. It is an intrinsically underlying problem page alway are already there and that shows up anytime you have an emergency just like getting water to people in a stadium after you know, they've had a tornado that shit is always a problem. So is it to set up an infrastructure around those things so that you know, the big ngos like project angel food and others that have programs that they could scale up in emergencies cuz they have the people who know how to run it. It's just a matter of numbers. So we've got a hundred people working for us to deliver foods to a food to a hundred thousand people over the course of several weeks and we know we can deliver this amount of food with this amount of spam and this amount of resources all we need are people of similar skill from restaurants. For example, we bring those people in they work for us they get paid. So the restaurant doesn't have to worry about the unemployment job. Those folks and and they can get a bill in a way a separate loan guarantee or something to keep them afloat that if they keep all their staff on or they continue on if they make it through and they don't close down. They may forgive the loan that idea if you close down you gotta pay it back cuz you're not staying open but the that but it's a matter of scale. That's what will ultimately help is that you have to you have you set system took place and then you can scale them up or down based on the the severity of the problem. And this is one of the most severe problems we've ever had but there's fewer people with food insecurity right now than there were in 2018 and that was a long-term plan and problem that was the financial system that crashed not a disease that's kept everybody home for a little while that as soon as it's over we can go back outside. This is a you know, there's a different system here and that's why I'm more hopeful about how this comes back on and this is also why Trump was like next year is going to be fabulous because the this the spike. Yep. At least you know percentage-wise is going to look like crazy. Oh my God business is through the roof. It's a thousand percent. Well, yeah cuz it was in the fucking toilet. And if that's the percentage-based, yeah, give me the actual numbers were probably the same as the year before but it's going to feel amazing. So people are going to want to go out more they're going to eat. The restaurants will be needed new restaurants are going to open like crazy for a while bunch of food trucks are finally going to get their places cuz they couldn't afford a building but they've stayed alive during this cuz they just had a truck that's amazing. So, I mean we have some real economic issues that may come in in terms of the ability to recover in terms of people having that disposable income or even a job, but we'll see what we get there what you were just describing with your with your hundred years your first hundred days of presidency wage. Hi, I guess in the world. I would be president for a hundred years clearly does sound like the normal presidency. I think it sounds breakthrough. Because of what we've been through but I'm Joan. Well, it's not normal it raising didn't go get it Clinton did it in his first term and then they attacked him for getting a blowjob George W. Bush did not do it George HW Bush did the priorities that you might need for the priorities that you like. But anyway, let me just say this but it's just it's just a guesstimate to I've no doubt that that's how Joe's going to run things just to how how aberrant this presidency has been how just so right. I mean it wasn't like we're going to come in and try something new it was like which is going to come in and golf and grift. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So so that's right sound like fantasies. But really it's just a normal functioning right? You're describing a healthy government, right? And right and the fun part is is I mainly do that both to tout my Bona fides as an exact. If at some point when I actually get to that point and run for mayor of Los Angeles, but also within the content of looking at the Trump presidency and anybody who actually lives under the illusion that they do is hold knows what he's doing. Oh, please you know what I mean? Cuz that's just because I don't like to go to Morehouse. But how do I thought you something here? Sure Dino bedolla cuz I asked him, you know, cuz cuz I was talking about you and John fugelsang and he said he's been trying to get going to show so oh you should follow him and have him he's done everything but asked me well, I don't know maybe maybe he said, yep. You didn't understand. I don't know what part of yes, they don't understand. It's so funny. I have my own cuz I have a rant to do about Howard Stern but I'll put that after you guys so sure I'll be go ahead and plug anything that you want to plug. Well, I just, you know, I am Still doing the narrative with social of its so you'll see us on there. I love coming out here with you. My Twitter handle is @lincolnsbible. I will continue to put research on there and I had not doing this flyer side chats that's ends up live on Periscope four people want to check that out. And what I can say is without saying too much. This is all going to move all of my organized crime work. Oh and underworld work right intersection of mobsters despise. It's all going to move into something kind of, you know, very different and exciting soon. So keep your eyes out on that and just keep following me and I'll come back if you need if you need to, you know, some do the looks kind of undercover cop like normally, you know, the rider I do.

He's your name how get unplug anything that you want to plug before I go to my rant about my ex-boss sexy. Liberal, Tour pack is the sexy liberal show. It's a best of and we're doing the cocktail hour and then the post show and it's I added a little extra something Christmassy for everybody in this episode if it made the cut, I don't know cuz I it's just surprised me when I see the Shoujo my my regular stream is on Twitch. TV / else Parks or at infotainment wars.com on my YouTube channel, you follow me on Twitter at Hal Sparks. And of course, you know Twitter will give you Periscope.

I think they're just going to they're going to convert it to Twitch are too a Twitter live and make that like Instagram, but you can live live stream Instagram page. So it'll just it'll be a largely a name flip but hopefully all the block mute and and punt aspects of Twitter will be then available in the chat room and Hal Sparks. Live of course is is where you can go for the Donate page. And by the way, I'm just showing off John by putting my venmo sticker off. There was a show me how to do that. I mean these days actually kind of a kind of a badass. I'm just saying that's pretty much took a show. I just got to do my rant heres. Thank you all the talking to you. It's good to hey, I'll see you Thursday. And I thank house parks and Dean Amidala and they'll be now. I just want to I just want to do this rant because you know, it's it's it's kind of ridiculous wage. But Howard Stern decided to respond to to to to the article that came out now again, keep in mind. I did not reach out to the New York Post the New York Post called me and they reached out to me and they asked me about you know, cuz a lot of old Howard Stern staff members, you know, we're all waxing poetic about how cheap and how cruel he has been in and you know to a lot of his staff and I just want to read what Howard said on the air and it's really you know, how may I just have to do it because it's it's a bunch of lies and and and here let me just read some of this. This is Howard's rant. Howard Stern brushed off criticism from former Show members who spoke to the post last week telling his radio audience that he didn't care the New York Post wrote an article that I'm a scumbag Stern said Tuesday scoffing at the piece. I swear to you. I don't spend a minute worrying about it. I couldn't give a fuck what people think about me. He continued you don't like me you want to work for me go fuc yourself. I don't care at the end of the night. I sleep fine. Okay, let's stop there and let me get back to me here. Okay now You don't really care. If you didn't care then why are you so pissed off about it? And you was a profanity. You're freaking Pelican and if you didn't care you sleep so great at night and you don't care then why do you go to a therapy? A therapist four times a fucking week? You're you're obviously not that fucking happy with yourself. I I I divert back to the article. Here we go. I just you know, it's amazing to me. So in expose by the post former longtime show hands unloaded on the shock jock accusing him of being a cruel penny-pincher who among others off other things forced his longtime show engineer Scott Salem to beg for money on a GoFundMe to pay for medical bills as his wife died of cancer walk. So now let's look at that one. Okay. Okay. I talked to Scott the Engineer. All right, Scott the Engineer talk to me on the phone and I have a witness in case Howard Scott the Engineer talked to me and my producer. I'd you know what he told us that he tried to talk to Howard Howard said, you know, you're not allowed to talk to me then Scott the Engineer. Because he was trying to get some money some help to pay for his wife's chemo. And he doesn't make that much money because you know how little they pay everybody over there. I know because I worked there for fifteen years and I maxed out but I think seventy-five thousand a year after 15 years, maybe eighty-five thousand and that's before taxes came out for Scott the Engineer then ask Yoko Turco Marci Turk if he can set up a GoFundMe so he can help try and save his dying wife Marci Turk told Scott that he can but he can't use the name Scott the Engineer and he can't say Thursday is from the Howard Stern Show. So Scott the Engineer sets up a GoFundMe page and raises about $73,000 to pay for Thursday. His wife's chemo and hospital bills. So guess what? Guess what Howard Stern does in retaliation cuz he gets shamed for his cruelty and his cheapness to Scott the Engineer. Let me say this month $50,000 Howard you make that in 10 seconds pretty much on serious and you can help out a guy that's been off for 30 fucking years. That's atrocious. It is bizarre behavior. And you should be ashamed for that behavior. So Howard gets shamed and he gets little butthurt cuz everyone's saying Howard Eugene fuk. Why didn't you help Scott? What happens to he's got the engineer from Scott's mouth to my ears and my producers he is so the story is corroborated off. Scott says that after that GoFundMe. He was demoted to another floor and written at a screen and not ever mentioned on the show. Again. That is what the retaliation that the freaking evil Howard Stern decided to do to age got the engineer who has been a loyal servant to Howard for 30 years. Okay. Let me go back to the article because it really drives me nuts that this guy has the audacity the freaking sit there and tell us to go fuck ourselves. Okay? now this is my quote. Okay, and and I said this has really bothered me. It's really sad his wife woke up dying Howard doesn't even go downstairs and offer Scott his condolences John Stuttering John Melendez a former Tonight Show announcer who work with Stern from 1988 to 2004 told the post Everyone Falls From Grace With Howard. Now, I will address that and then we'll get back to the article. That is the truth people Scott. The Engineer told me and my producer who was on the conference call Scott engineer said that when his wife Robin died. How would they not go downstairs and offer his condolences? No, not at all. You know. What Howard did he sent Scott the Engineer and email two sentences long? Beth and I are very sorry for your loss. We have donated to a cancer charity in your wife's name. That is all faith is what Howard Stern did. So if you could sleep at night after knowing that this poor guy had to set up a GoFundMe and you could sleep at night after you don't even go downstairs and offer your condolences and you can sleep at night after you fired Scott. The Engineer said you got more problems than you could think of you should up your therapy sessions to 7 days a week because that is abominable Behavior. But listen, I work with Jay Leno. For ten years. I know as a fact J has helped people on his staff who have had their family members in the hospital and Jay Leno has stepped up to the plate. I know that as a fact he has always done that because you can't take the money with your Howie. And you should take care of your people and this whole Post article started with you telling Ellen DeGeneres that she said own her behavior towards fair and I couldn't believe it and I said, I'm Bill Schultz Show. I can't believe that he's saying that if they he told me to abort my my first child because I wasn't fit to be a father and he never went to bat for me for any salary. I had my family's life and I mean health insurance taken away from me at the time. She Pisano gave it to me as a as as a bargaining tool when I asked to get paid $50,000 a year after I worked there for twelve years now. Let me just finish with the article. So here we go. Stern hasn't been so slow sang wine or sanguine about criticism from his former staff after a critical Facebook post from Melendez and two thirds 2009 Stern laced into his former employee deriding him an on-air as a backstabbing cont. Okay. Now I could fucking stop. Okay. Now let me just I just want to clarify that for everybody as well. now this is how thin-skinned Howard Stern could compete with Donald Trump for being the most thin-skinned fuck on the planet. This is what that 2009 Facebook thing that I said and keep in mind. This is after thin-skinned Howie decided to beat up on Jay Leno Ad nauseam because Jay hired me and gave me a better life for me and my family Jay hired me paid me back way more five times as much as I was making on the Stern Show between four and five times as much I had job security office and big Christmas bonuses. Not the fucking popcorn canister that I got from Howie for Christmas that he gave all his staff that I still have dead. Okay. No Jay, Leno offered me a better life. And what did Howard Stern do he BJ up every single day on the are making my life miserable and making me have to go up to Jay and apologize and say J. I feel responsible and J put his hands on my shoulder and said John I don't give a fuk that's J now here. Is that fucking Facebook post that I did and I I can't wait to say this because this is how thin-skinned off that Howard fucking Stern is What I wrote on Facebook that put Howard in to such a tizzy and decided to go off on me off nausea calling me every name in the book. You name it the horrible things. He said about me. This is what I did that got me to be deserving of being called a backstabber account an ingrate a no-talent a loser and everything else that he called me. This is what I said on Facebook. People on Facebook were accusing me as a writer for The Tonight Show of stealing bits from the Stern Show and not using them on The Tonight Show. So what did I say? Because people were saying that Howard was saying that I was stealing bits and using them on The Tonight Show the first of all I'm a comedian. Okay any comedians for the most part will never knowingly steal anyone's bits and I would never do that with a because I have morals integrity and because I'm OCD and I would not feel right about it. Anyway, I feel too much guilt and that guilt would eat me up. So I would never intentionally wage ever do that. So this is what I wrote on Facebook. I said to the person saying that Hera was saying that I was stealing his bits and using them on The Tonight Show. I said, that's not true. Don't drink the Kool-Aid. That is all I said, that's it. Don't drink the Kool-Aid. That's it. Meaning don't believe everything you hear out of Hollywood how he's mouth because he is not someone that you should believe which I learned when I went to The Tonight Show, but keep in mind. That's all I said don't drink the Kool-Aid. Now I ask you everybody in the chat. Was that deserving of a brutal beating on the air by the self-proclaimed king of all media? I asked you was that that disparaging don't drink the Kool-Aid was that anything that you put him into such a craze? No, I don't think so. It's not. So there you have it. And when I learned about Howard's cooling is all the years that I was on the Stern show how often accused Jay Leno of stealing the homeless game and calling it jaywalking when I got to The Tonight Show after believing this month. I said to the Head writer at the time Joe Medeiros I said, yeah, but you guys stole the homeless game and you know, that's what jay walking is Joseph John. That's not true. He goes. When did the first home was game? Are I said in Nineteen Ninety Six because I was the one that did it it was it was Charlie Yankee Day Parade. Yes, if my memory serves me correct, and it usually does that was the first time and it was Casey Armstrong's idea. A brilliant one at that and I believed Howard cuz why shouldn't I and then Joe Medeiros the head writer at The Tonight Show said John we've been doing jaywalking the first time in nineteen eighty-eight. Then it became a regular segment in nineteen ninety to nineteen. Ninety three months. So there that's the cool thing that I was drinking when I was over there. I thought that The Tonight Show was stealing The homeless game because how he said so guess what how he was full of shit. And now I go back to that article. He's not sleeping fine at night people because if he is then he's got real problems because all those people in the initial article written by John Lavigne me gorilla. Artie Lange Scott the Engineer There are a lot more that chose to be anonymous Howie. And maybe some of them could still be working now. That's all I'm going to say. And trust me anybody that leaves there and I'm talking about anybody. I don't want to speak for them. But I do talk to them many of them. They all have the same feeling that I did Grillo. I paid already did and everybody else. There's a long line of people that experienced. Your cheapness and your on air abuse. That's all I'm going to say. Now I want to thank everybody who has been on the show today. I had to just get that off my chest because I just it's just it's just boggles the mind that this guy who makes that much money is so Frugal with his staff. One year, we got a popcorn canister the SiriusXM guys got Sirius Radio radios with a year a year subscription. Really Jackie The Joke many told me that that once Howard gave us Sony cameras and Jackie thought it was such a generous gift until he called Sony looking for the case. And so and he told me that they sent our like a hundred free carrots has a promotional thing. But so that's that and my mom is leaving. Sorry Mom. I was just getting a little angry because I don't like I don't like, you know, it's just bulshit to be, you know said by this this person who really really in my eyes has lost all his integrity. But that's it for all of that. And now I will fact, you know, the dollop house parks and lb for doing the show today, I think it was a great show and not the that you decrease your watch for the $10. Thank you everybody for the super chats, including good as gold and Jillian and Mark pay and everybody.

That's why I block people cuz I don't want any part of organized religion and I don't take the Bible that literally and when people start dming me repent I hit the Box on it. That's all I have to say about that because I don't want any part. Of religious lunatics because that's that's what they are. Thank you. And when I hiked I hiked with my kids I hike with my friend Anthony, you know, I don't only hike with women. And and if I do hike with women, it's only on a friendly basis, which was my intent.

Well, come to the fantasy footballers podcast coming to you from draft dot com studios with your hose, Andy Holloway, Jason Moore and Mike, right. Welcome in a little shaky there. Mike here, an my coffee this morning. Oh, we had the morning show. All hail how the king we're we're right into it. Apparently that cuts off the inter- I didn't realize that was gonna win. The king shows up. Everything must stop. Apparently everything stops king Guthrie. He sweet played pretty well ANC. Moses look. This was not just the game, my friends. This was a game of games, and he is the third quarterback. I heard this this morning. He is the third quarterback in history with the perp perfect passer rating in a game in which over thirty passes place, much Kurt Warner. And then. Somebody else named O'Brien, so wait a minute. Okay. Hold on. Now we were talking about how Brandin cooks so far in his career. The reason we're kind of down on them coming into this year's cause us. We've jason. Me Mike might because they Jason myself, but I am me Mike and myself. Yes, we were a little bit down on on cooks, but part of the reason why is because look, we've only seen him play with hall of fame, quarterbacks. Oh, and now you're going now he's going to LA we we don't know. Maybe he still only playing with hall of fame quarterback things have taken a turn for Jared Goff Thursday night. It was a barn burner thirty eight thirty one. The Rams defeated the Vikings. Vikings are one to one. And if you remember before the season, I think Minnesota is a title contending team. I do not changing that, but I expected this record to be worse. I expected it to be harder. It's hard in the NFL to thirteen and three. It doesn't normally happen in change your offense coordinator who by the way performed stellar last night. I mean, this was great play calling on both sides of the ball. I think this was the second time in NFL history that you had five players with one hundred yards. Receiving five hundred receivers might have been the first time, and so you had games like this Cooper Cup nine for one sixty two and two brand cook seven for one sixteen and one. Robert woods five for one on one and one. Todd Gurley guy only had four for seventy three through the air for a touchdown on the other side of the ball, feeling eight for one thirty, five and one Stefan digs eleven for one twenty three. He was left out of the touchdown party that was, oh, what a loser and look. I was dead wrong about Kirk cousins. He came out and lit, set the world on fire. Hopefully listen to Mike about that of the listen to me about Dalvand cook because dalvin cook tin for twenty and didn't show up in the second half. And this was a crazy game. I mean two quarterbacks that went over four hundred yards each with. No turnovers. No picks at all. Yeah, this was look. Both of these teams have great defenses, but both of these teams have great offenses. The offenses were they won the day Rams beating the Vikings thirty eight thirty one in a high scoring game as it was fantastic. And I, you know. I hope you start a my start of the week. This was the continuation of last year. You guys recall the Rams playing on Thursday night last year. They played San Francisco. Yeah, it was a great game, and everyone was like, right. This game is gonna suck butts and then it was incredible. Yeah, and this game. Is that what everybody said? Well, that's what I said. I, I mean, I just assume everyone has opinion. I do Mike, right? Ni-. It is Friday guys and well. Put clan Friday. It is foot clan Friday, and we are so very thankful for all the support of the official foot clan members over joined the fight dot com.

If you Andy, if you went up against either cousins or any, really any of the players from this game, this is a little a little Pat on the back. It says everything's gonna be okay. Yeah, there are Thursday night. I'm trying to comfort people because everybody played somebody in this game pretty much. Now Brooks, you're in a few leagues and why don't you give us the rundown on what happened to you? Last night, the old Gough Cooper Cup stack wants me and you've got in more than one league to, oh mercy, that's when you just you do the Derrick jeeter tip the cap like you're just all right. I'm out for a week five. Like I if you out there if you win this week against Goff and Cup against that stack, I wanna see it on. Twitter at the f. f. ballers I wanna see that because I actually believe that that's that is impossible to overcome. Yeah, I, it would be tough. I mean, that was like the week one. Patrick Mahomes tyreek hill stack, correct. I tried to overcome but could not so Brooks, we won't be seeing you Sunday. You just this Dogan off. Got it. All right. We're going to get right into in and out. Catch up on the injury news and then we'll get into the matches. Are you in or out. I guess before we do that, I do want to throw one more of these in there. Because Sean McVeigh was going fifty five all night as in he found number fifty, five on the Minnesota defense, Anthony Barr. And then he said that player gets a touchdown against Anthony, Barr, girly woods Cup, all three of them on number fifty, five. Then it was bad man. You really blame him like say, hey, Anthony, Barr. I want you to line up and I want you to stop Cooper Cup on a wheel route. I want you to stop Robert woods in the seem so. I mean, I'm not a cornerback. What are you body? Can't do that. All right. In and out running in reminder, this is what we're talking about guys who have been showing up limited or they're dealing with an injury problem. And we are projecting whether they are internet the, we're now. We we got there. Yeah. So let's on McCoy in the play. Chris Carson in. He was very limited during the week, but he cared about thirty two time. That's why he always Leonard fournette. Gives in, I'm going in, although he is someone you need to monitor because he got the same practice in last week and they sat him. So yeah, but I think he'll be in TJ Eldon also in marshawn Lynch in always in devante Freeman with the knee out it. Yeah, j. j. j. j. is this is insane to me, the news that came out. I don't know if you guys took it the same way I did. It looks like he's going to play. He's somehow not listed on the injury report, but he's dealing with a back fracture. There's nothing you can do. You cannot sub optimal. You can't wrap your back in a cast until it heals, but it hurts because your back is broken. Doug Peterson said good to go. Yeah, and it's just a pain taller? Yeah. So how about you? You're no Dido don't be bad to go. It's not bad to go. Yeah, that's bad to go. But to go, go go there. Dan stroz. If JJ has a great week this week, I'm shipping them out. He's just he is. He's a walking mummy. You'd be backing off? Yeah, it'd be back in, oh, they're in Spro. Sprawls out, Corey Clement, he'll play. Do you wanna play him though? Not if JJ please? Geo. Bernard employ Alfred Morris with the knee injury cropped up yesterday. He got into limited session, but you don't like that Thursday injury add no late late week injury. Ads are never good, but he. Was still participating. So I think he's in all the fearful breed owners is saw the q the questionable next to their name. He's got a full practice. Yeah. Marlin MAC and ITO Smith don't care. That's true. Wide receivers, Keenan Allen. Oh, mazes, say knee and tooth? Yeah. The tooth was a new thing for Thursday and his his injuries that very abnormally because he had the kidney and the tooth just rip it out, like a children's book, the kidney and the tooth, or they superheroes. I don't. Figured out the plot yet. Look out for the Molin the I'll look out for Andy's next children by cusp ID. That's see Mike in. I think Keenan will play, but this is a you better. Watch full did not practice on Thursdays. You start Antonio gates who had five receptions last week if Keenan Allen was out? No, we actually got in the game. He had some snaps, but I'll be very, very happy if Mike Williams is on my roster and no, no doubt about an Allen is out the you can be as bullish as you wanna be on Mike, William c, will he will have. Down guaranteed AJ green in deandre Hopkins in juju in and great. Julio Jones in Larry FitzGerald in we'll fuller, he's, he's limited, but this is just what he does. He runs too fast for his hamstring's. Doug, here's a, here's one will will sit on for a second, Doug Baldwin. He says, he's good to go. He says, he, he's needs known for coming back quicker from injury. He says, he's fine winning, but you really play Doug Baldwin because this is a bit of a dalvin cook situation, right? You've got not one but two bad knees. You are coming back for the first time and you've offs also made plans on your roster. Most likely. Over the last few weeks not having to Baldwin. So maybe you're starting kindergarten day a will fuller. Some of the Seahawks John Brown, their plans of non, not missing done now, worried about Baldwin's, long-term involvement in this offense is going to be her. It's going to be painful for Tyler Lockett in the end, yes, but this week do you play Baldwin over those guys? I mentioned the Corey Davis over corriedale plame over cord Davis. Yes. Yeah, I, it's going to be dependent for me based on your team and your matchup meaning I see Doug Baldwin as a boom, bust guy, which is not usually how you view Doug Boehm, Doug Baldwin's a consistent guy with a high floor, but there is you have to understand the risk of him going out there and running a couple routes and going man, the knee flared up, and then he's pulled. And so you get a complete goose egg. Right. Is there, but you know, you say coming back early from injury, this actually is he has rested this a very good amount of time for the specific injury yet for the MC l. yeah. What from from what? At least. Compared to what pro football doc had originally projected. He was saying that that injury would be about a week. He's taken several off. Interesting. So it's one of those things where if he's healthy, he's going to have a great game clearance from the team. I yes, so he's boom bust and we didn't mention Joe mixing. We should've mentioned Joe mixon. Sure. He he's running around. He's saying the same things as duck, bald and I do mine in the oven. I do not believe that mix them. We'll be cleared to play this week, but next week and if played, if it was a surprise play, would you would say geo? Yes, yes. My start of the week I, I'll pivot now to starting Bengals running back. So either nice call is GIO mic. My start of the week is the running back from the AFC west. Ooh, the good one. The number will ever does best. Like I'll give it to Jason. We've done that before. It's it's, it's very call, mixing hasn't practice though. I mean, it's very unlikely. He'll play Josh Gordon. I believe he'll get in there this week. I do not Randall Cobb. This one was bizarre. Awesome. That. Okay. All right. do shook mean one for Toronto. Alice? Okay. Come on man on Adams. Look, Randall Cobb been out there. Stinking it up the last couple of weeks and he's out of the way timeout Gummer and wait till you get sick. Yeah, where it'd be like great for the ballers. Sweet for the show and I'm feeling sick. Can I take off? I'm Tom, Tom is a little under the weather I could. Did you have a bad cook? Oh, yes. Bodied I feel I I don't feel bad now that you? Yeah, right. Randall Cobb house, alshon Jeffery looking this week guys. Let's move on. Did we say what happened to calm? So Randall cubs did the quote from Carthy. It's unfortunate, but we'll see how it goes. That's homeless. The way that I've you is you cannot sleep in a horror movie. I'll be right back news, right? Randall Cobb has never been one to deal with injuries or come back fast from injury. Or avoid them or avoid them. So I, I see him as out whether or not he's in Jeffrey. He, he was practicing cleared for contact. Missed Thursdays practice with an illness. It's a little weird. So like there's air quotes around Gayle. Nece. Yeah. I mean, there's no reason to not believe him. I think actually play. That's all I'm gonna vote in. So would you play him? No. Okay. Now, week, one guy, this is my policy if I can avoid. Now, there are some players you can't avoid that with. Right? Sure. But if you're coming back from an injury that has kept you up more than two weeks or all of them or all of them, then you be very careful when you come back and play them because you risk and it could work out to be honest dalvin cook. Owners were probably feeling great. He looked great. He was out there first half ten Carey Carey off. It's of line sucked, but he looked great. And then he went full like Copperfield. And if you have outshone on your team, you have a starting roster because you'd have a starting. You have a for your fantasy lineup. I mean you you are guy playing, so you're you're okay. You can wait one more week without. All right. Let's blitz the tight ends. Rob. Gronkowski in Jimmy Graham in Jack Doyle. I don't think he's gonna play a think he's out. You don't do. We have any update Brooks on Eric Hebron because I know swoop is taken all the first team reps because both guys were out. Yeah, Eric Hebron was also missing classy. He returned yesterday. Okay. Full practice off the Andrew or take another shot with Abraham this week guys. Look, the titans are it's even a kiddle Kittle. Kittle. Jonathan, b, too long. Yeah. All right. Let's move on here foot clan. Remember game day alerts, one hour before the main Sunday kickoff. You can also catch Mike on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, periscope, twitch on Sunday live. He comes live to give you advice to make his own decisions on his roster to tilt. That's really what I do or your is. It's just a therapeutic session for me. We're working through all the kinks of my own. The key to fantasy football is to get other people to agree with your decision. So you can't blame them and feel together with what happened. I mean, that's it will get people on board with you because that's why we get multiple thousands of questions a day is somebody wants a little Pat on the back to say, that's a good start. That's a really good start. I like what you're doing there, but that. Well, that's yeah, that's my voice when I answer questions. Oh, that's good to know that I play another character. That's good to know. Here's my advice start Todd, Gurley look. Excellent. Thank you. I can. I can. I get let you guys in on something. So I had been made. I had mentioned that I had offered a trade of David Johnson Sony Michele Amari Cooper, and the number two and number second round pick next year for Todd Gurley. And he turned that down. Yeah, but he actually countered also where I could have received Todd Gurley. But you, you declined it. I declined it with Rugrats. Oh, it was it? Was he replaced Sony with Alvin cook? Oh, so that's tough. I mean, Dave, Alvin cook Amari Cooper and a two for Todd Gurley. Now you did not know the Sony news or you know, this was prior to the because there's a decent chance, Sony outperforms cook recipe. I'll take that waterbed all year all day. Of course you will because you have no choice. You don't have sunny Michelle, you got delve and cook. You need something. I believe in Devon. You don't even Sony, Michelle, we've seen Davin cook be awesome. And I didn't say he will. I said, there's a chance for the opportunity will be there. He's not dealing with the injury and cook is dealing with the team has made it. I'm just saying there's a chance. So there's a world where I would rather trade cook, then Sony and then you'd have girly. Yeah. Do you. Would you deal right now? My DJ cook Cooper to for girly as as the bystander, I can say, yes. But if I'm if I'm actually the, these guys are on my team and I'm shipping away what could be to really high level running back assets in a draft pick? I don't know that I would have been able to do it vehic trade. I loved it. Amari Cooper in this deal is not even all. Hooper just like an added. It's it's, it's just Soper is on pepper on there is fully purgatory. He full purgatory for fantasy football. You can't trade him. You can't play him and you cannot cut him. Yeah, I I came up with and just as there we're going to get into the forecast, but I believe that league's should have a Cooper spot. Oh. The i. r. is not the bench. It's a separate spot and only Amari Cooper can go there and it basically just removes him from the league. Right? He's not allowed to go to waivers. You cannot AM start him? Yes, it maybe we should just remove him. Maybe we can talk to the guys at ESPN. Talk to the guys ESPN yahu CBS my fancy league and see if we can just have him removed from the player pool. I mean, that would fix why not? Why not? Hey, we're going to take a look at all the match ups before we look at all the NFL matchups wanna thank today's sponsor. NFL game pass. And genuinely I want to thank today's sponsor. NFL game pass because I love it. I'm Canadian Phil Cooper out of it, faithful for the tool itself. It is so valuable. You guys, if you love watching football and you want to go back and watch the unbelievable game that happened last night between the Rams and the Vikings, you just go to NFL game pass and you loaded up. You want to watch it quick. The condensed film you wanna watch the amazing routes going on that you can't usually see and you wanna watch all twenty two film. You can do that. You wanna play search and just look at the Brandin cooks place. You can do that. It is such a powerful impose. Valuable and fun tool. You will love it. Best of all, you can start a seven day. Free trial of NFL game pass. Give it a whirl. All you have to do is sign up at NFL dot com. Slash fantasy footballers. That's NFL dot com. Slash fantasy footballers. You will love it game on. We gotta go, let's do it. Dan SE forecast. I just realized we may. We may want to change hanging with Mr. Cooper to Cooper Cup. I mean, at some point I don't wanna lose that drop. We got a little animation on the YouTube side, and Cooper Cup is very good. He is going to be good for a long time. Would you argue that he is everything that Amari Cooper isn't. There are very different wide receivers. So then yes, but also included in that is one of them is good at football. Yeah. And the other one is has yet to prove that I, I will say this Jason, the world of bears fans. In raged with you. Oh, man for your for your bitch. Trubisky conclusions yesterday there were YouTubers threatening to unsubscribe. There are those that want to dance upon your grave when he becomes great. Yeah, j. j. Grizz on followed me. Jay Grizz. Yeah. The Grizz. Oh, I think I have a quote from him. Yeah, us pretty pissed. So look, if Trubisky comes out and becomes the future Goff you're going to eat some crow, we'll go back and take a clip of that, and it'll be funny bit and it'll never happen now. Remember, I would just saying this because I know what's going to happen this week. I'm going to get so many tweets after this week saying, oh, see told you who's good. I think this is a really good matchup for him. Specifically this week, he's a streamer candidate, but as far as being a great quarterback millville gonna help him. Well, QB pork purgatory for the for the bears and that awesome defense. Maybe it'd be alright, not fantasy forecast yesterday. We had the first half of the match ups, a reminder. If you wondered where the preview was for the Thursday night game because somebody thought we missed it, it was on Wednesday, you missed it? Yeah, we do it on Wednesday so that you get the full preview ahead of the Thursday night game. So we do that the Thursday night game on Wednesday. We do a half of the games on on Thursday, and we do the second half or right now dolphins three. Now taking on the patriots patriots or seven point favorites at home. It's very interesting, this aspect. I mean Ryan tannehill. Listen to this average three hundred and forty four passing yards per game in the last three matchups in Foxborough. Wow. So when he goes on the road, any faces the patriots, he puts up yardage. Usually that is because. The patriots put up points and you have to throw and keep up. It has been, I believe it is two thousand and three since the last time that the patriots of lost three games in a row. It's not going to happen here. They're, you know they're going to win this game, but could you even imagine if they lost at homes of the dolphins and their one? And I am, I can imagine victory. Oh, I'll take a victory. Yeah, John, you're paying on running right now for sure. Limber up, but Ryan tannehill you, you bring up his his past and the offense is looking good. I think he is a streamer candidate. He's wow. Your stream of the week, right? No, it was last week. I stream Ryan tannehill on the road here despite that stat. I don't hate it here. Here's one of the interesting facts about the dolphins right now. They've had a lot of fluky wide receiver. Touchdowns their wideouts are averaging seven point eight yards after the catch the season best in the NFL. The average is about four. I mean, you had the the tap that passed to Alber Wilson last week. You know, people need to know which wide receiver Stephen starts stills. Wilson Parker keen grant with the big plays last week. The patriots defense has been bad. They're giving up thirty six point, nine fantasy points per game to the mind. Receiver position. It's not been great. This is kind of how they start the season and you wonder win. They're going to get it together because they always do. So if you start one, who do you start? You start Kenny stills. If you're going to start one. I mean, he's the guy that is the prototypical down the field wide receiver. I would also be willing to throw Albert Wilson and they're, they use him in some creative ways with Adam gates, and he's, he's been able to find the ins zone. So he's flex? Yeah. Those are the only two guys that I would be willing to start much more so willing to start Kenny stills because of targets over Albert will where's your your Kenyan Drake temperature at I, there's pointing us far, absolutely one hundred percent. You have to have been disappointed with Kenyan Drake so far, but. My temperature is not that cold on Kenyan Drake. I think you could target him in a trade last week. I believe both Kenyan Drake and Frank gore in a really weird game, think they both had like five carries total or each and so it was. It just didn't even attempt to run the ball, and part of that was because like Andy said, those little tap passes the win seventy yards. The trick play the goes seventy yards. When are you going to run the ball? So that's not like Kenyan Drake was benched. That's just the offense wasn't able to be on the field. They didn't need to be yesterday. This is my under pressure player. You have to perform in this matchup or I have changed my opinion of your, you know your season long value Kenyan Drake, a quarter of the way through the season. If he doesn't perform against the team, that's giving it the third most rushing yards per game. It's a problem. It's an adjusted viewpoint. So on the on the patriots side, you know, how confident, Mike? Are you in Sony, Michelle right now. He's. He's, he's obviously been. He was put in there to be the guy last week. He saw a lot of eight man fronts. He didn't look great. It didn't do anything special. Didn't do anything in the passing game, but he has every opportunity on a team that should be very good. So my. That's exactly why I'm confident in in Sony as a running back to with tremendous upside. It's opportunity ten carries in week two that went up to fourteen carries with three targets. So seventeen total opportunities. Rex Burkhead on the i. r. if you somehow missed that news, it's Sony, Michelle and James white. This is the first time in a very, very long time that the patriots running back situation is crystallized. It's two guys is the biggest complaints that people had about the patriots system is it's multiple backs. You never know who it's going to be. We know who's going to get the opportunity Kenyan Barner the sure sure that I mean, that would be very patriots of them to do, but and home a get right game for Tom Brady and the patriots. I'm very confident in Sony, Michelle for fantasy this week, HOGAN Gordon Dorset any confidence star. In a wide out at home. They're seven point favorites over under in this games. Forty eight points. Somebody's gonna score, not just going to be gronkowski. It's not just going to be Brady. Miami is not usually a great team to play a your wide receivers against. I mean, I, it might surprise you to realize that they were top five last year and fancy points given up to the wide receivers, meaning you. They were good defense against wide receivers, given what's happened with Chris HOGAN so far I'm hesitant. I mean any any one of these guys could get touchdowns Tom Brady, but I'm hesitant to start them in this matchup. I'm not excited for it's gronk all day. I'm starting Sony. Michelle, you know, I'm not doing the wait and see. I'll start him because the volume should be now the the hesitance on HOGAN in the past catchers, the Miami Dolphins are rings twenty-ninth in giving a passing yards. So it's I know they're stopping fantasy points because the touchstones haven't. Come through three weeks, but they're giving up tons of yardage, right? They're giving up a lot of yards to tight ends as well. So grunk is going to fare feast, eagles titans. Both teams to in one games in Tennessee. Tennessee are three and a half point underdogs at home. Forty one point over under Carson Wentz game number two. Marcus mariota is going to get the start for Tennessee. I've been the most bullish about Corey davises future. I've, I've had people. Gimme some garbage on the old Twitter sphere about Corey Davis thus far. And I look, there is no more Delaney Walker, Jason brought it up yesterday and there's no more Rashard Matthews. He was released yesterday. I don't think that had happened by the time. We were talking about it. He had left the team, but now he's been released and this is the Corey Davis show. This is Corey Davis opportunity, Jason, put it correctly. If he doesn't do it this year, he's never going to do it, but the targets will be there. I'm fine playing Corey Davidson. This game as a wide receiver. Three. Okay. I can give you three with two upside obviously and look Dion Lewis. Derrick Henry disappointing last couple of weeks. We talked to the giants situation. So I think the headlines here it's gonna come down to confidence level on the Philadelphia side for your starts because of everybody's banged up. I mean, obviously, arts is out there, right? But Dion Lewis, where's your confidence level with Louis and Henry. A Louis Henry confidence level is very low for this match up on my confidence level in Dion. Lewis in general is actually pretty high. I think he's going to have a very good rest of season. He, he's going to be a great Bilo candidate right now. I mean if he has a bad week which I expect he will against the number two ranked Philadelphia Eagles rush defense as far as not not their rusty of its but fantasy points giving up to running back so that includes dump offs and passes and screens, and all of that, it's a tough defense. This is a low score projection from Vegas. I don't think he's going to have a good game. And I mean Dion Lewis. Owners are gonna wanna drop them after three bad weeks in a row. I'm benching him this week. I'm benching their kin this week. Yeah. I mean, I think the only piece that I'm willing to play from the titans is Corey Davis on the flip side by the way eagles cornerback Ronald Darby given up the most receiving yards among defensive backs in the NFL right now, the eagles against wide receivers. They're twenty second in the league. So they have. I've given up yardage to the wide receiver, right? Yes, they they are not not only I'm I'm weirded out by the titans defense like I don't know what I don't know what to make of the titans. They keep winning these games and it's like, here's here's what you. Here's what I feel like their defenses, which craft low. Yeah, I it's just like, why does everybody suck against them? You know, you watch certain defenses and you go, oh, man, that defense is just good. They swarm there. I feel like everybody just the offense is suck. When you play the titans. I see which craft. Yeah. I picked up the titans a week ahead. This is one of the strategies I take if I don't have a lot of fab, so you can piggyback off that idea if he got room on your bench. I like picking up defenses a week early. If I don't have a lot of fab to spend. I pick up the titans not to play this week, but the play next week against buffalo because their defense has been pretty darn good and Josh Allen as much as I love him. He's prone to make a few mistakes. So. Is that right? Brooks forty, nine total defensive points through three weeks. No, I'm sorry. That's a point scored just by the team only four nine points. Yeah. Well, look, you gotta throw it a little bit of what's happened on the offensive side. They have had no opportunity to get into any kind of groove. Your quarterback went out. I'm giving them. I'm giving them grace. Yeah, I want to avoid this game. I just going to be fantasy relevance. I mean, change the channel if you have to start wince. Okay. If you start galore. All right. I mean, JJ is gonna get work. There's there's literally both sides of the ball, including Corey Davis, including Carson Wentz. There's no one. I'm excited to start in this game, Josh shrews oh, the one in two Seahawks take on the three cardinals. Oh, how the mighty have fallen these two for many years battled atop the NFC west, and now they're sitting in a home match up. The cardinals are as three point. Underdogs with eight thirty eight now point over under and I'd take the under. No, Arizona's defense at home against Russell Wilson. You know if Doug Baldwin doesn't play, I'll take the under in this game and and where do you really have any confidence? I mean, David Johnson, you know, I wanna see him perform, but you haven't and then Josh Rosen, the rookie gets the start. So I mean, I play Seattle's defense. I would play both defenses just like last week. When I said play, the bears play the cardinals. This should be a low scoring game because it's an Arizona. The cardinals defense is a is a quality stream this week. I we, we had our trainers this morning talking about all their great defenses that they had that have really bad match ups this week, and they're like, do I play him? And you know, when you've got to see hawks, defense is on the waivers all over the place cardinals are on the waivers just about every place. So you could pick up stream these these, the, the player that I'm probably the most confident in. I mean, I'm, of course I'm still one hundred percents starting David Johnson. He's despite how much he's. He's, you know, destroyed your hopes and dreams of what he could become. His actually had two of his three weeks be pretty fantasy, relevant a touchdown in both. But Chris Carson, yeah, is I think a guy you should be starting. The cardinals have been destroyed so far this year on the ground. Adrian Peterson Jordan, Howard, these guys have feasted. And So Chris Carson thirty two carries over one hundred yards last week. I think he's going to keep the train runnin want to say on the the cardinal side of the ball. If you have a burner spot in, you're looking to do a a, a waiver wire, grab see what happens to the weekend. Christian Kirk is one of my favorite ads. Go heading into this this week. Last last week. Eight targets ninety yards on seven receptions. Let's see what happens with Josh Rosen. I think he could. I think Kirk could end up being one of the hot waiver wire pickups. This week and hopefully he does because the cardinals are tied with the Cowboys as the only teams where they're wide receiver cores have not scored a touchdown. Yeah. And that's that. That tape on is David. Austin is marked as a run. What do you do with Larry FitzGerald? That's one of the biggest names people and he's at home. Just hold them for this game. You see what happens? Yeah, I try not. No, I would try not to plan. I try. And I mean, there are a lot of players they'd rather play than than Larry this week because there's too much unknown John Rosen behind center, the lack of confidence and Mike McCoy finding opportunity for their FitzGerald. He is a hold and see if something changes this week for Josh Rosen, and then look, you're not going to get a lot of value form trying to train them anyway. So I, I make a spot on the bench form. All right. Let's move on Brown's raiders the one on one. Excuse me. I I'm not used to saying the one at the beginning. Yes, one one in one Browns take on the Owen three starred raider really now the beginning is very often one. It's really the end that is different. Right? Because there's a lot of like one and two teams. One in three drag for the Browns, the man. My point was the Browns that you don't normally start to send a victory that is and look they. They're playing the, the win this raiders. The raiders are two and a half point home favorites in this game with Baker mayfield's debut as the full time starter. Now in Cleveland, a lot of opportunity for obviously Jarvis Landry in Antonio Calloway to be the target what absorbers. Yeah, though it there, that's that's totally it. Carlos Hyde. Good work behind center yesterday. I believe Todd Haley came out and said, look, it's been hard to get Duke Johnson, Nick Chubb Carey's because. The way Carlos height succeeds is through volume by getting him a lot of work in the offense. He gets better with more touches. He was saying, and Todd Haley has a history of using a single back and watching them get stronger. So I I mean, Karl twenty two point, three touches per game right now for Carlos Hyde, which is six in the league. So that backs up that statement. Yeah, Carlos Hyde is he's a good running back. He is a good running back. He's in a good system. He's twenty eight. So he's a couple of years away from the thirty Mark. I don't think they're going away from Hyde at all this if he doesn't get injured, he's going to be the guy rest of season. Knick. Chubb is not going to be encroaching in the second half of the season. It's almost a shame that hide had the multi touchdown game because he is he's a trade for target, but some owners are probably going to be like, I don't know. It's just it's really the opportunity for hide. That's all. That's all I care about. It's the opportunity and he's not been good this year. All he. He's been good for fantasy. Right? But he's three point three Carey. And that's only because last game he was four point. Three carries two point eight. The game before two point, seven. We'll see what he does with Baker. I mean, but as soon as Baker came in Carlow side, he was getting things done. Yes, no, I look. I traded for him. I agree with all that. I it's just one of those things that I remember the refrain was tyrod Taylor helps running backs. He's going to be great with tyrod Taylor, and then he was bad with tyrod Taylor, so, but it's the opportunities. Twenty-three carries sixteen carries twenty two carries. That's not going away based on on usage and what you know their offense should be able to move the ball, more red zone opportunities. Let's talk about marshawn Lynch right now. He's fourth most in the league in red zone Carey's. He's converted into three touchdowns converted those into three touchdowns. He's pretty touchdown dependent. I now did you how feels? Yeah, he does, but he's pretty touchdown, like confident. I feel like there's always down absorber. Yes. Now is you did it? Yeah, it was right. Yeah. I mean, I I would I love marshawn. I think in this matchup the Browns right now, they're averaging almost twenty five points per game giving up to to the running back position at home favored. You have to start marshawn Lynch, a must start. Yeah. I think the game script will be one that marshawn Lynch should see plenty of volume with an opportunity to score. What do you guys think about Calloway? My started the week. I think he's extremely interesting. He's out. The since Josh Gordon gate, whatever happened there where he had he was inactive and then he was going to be cut. And then he was traded Antonio. Calloway is the wide receiver to and he is the big play wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns. It's a huge upgrade getting Baker Mayfield here you. We talked about last week when when tyrod was in in the first half Calloway was running free on at least two plays tyrod through an errant pass in that were these were surefire touchdowns that I think Baker can make throw a little bit better. So Callaway is very interesting to me. Jason has Jared cook is the start of the week. Do you like David and Joe Khuda have a an improved performance with Baker. I mean, both is catches last week with Baker in the middle of the field is someplace that tyrod was avoiding, but Baker was diving into, yeah, I think that in joke, who gets a bump up, this isn't necessarily the perfect match up for him, but it is not a bad one. So I mean in joke, who is in that group with e Braun and with, you know, all those guys where it's like, you can start them, but you're just not excited and your your touchdown dependent. But there's there's twenty of those type of tight ends. And there's only four or five that aren't in joke. Who for me, like much like Christian Kirk, I want to try and stash him if I can't. I don't like having two tight ends on my roster. But if you have one of those. Burners unfortunate sub optimal situations. With your tight end, I would try to get in joke who on the back of my bench. He's available in over thirty percent of leagues over on ESPN. So it takes a peek. He might. He's a lot like Howard in as much as he's got all the physical talent in the world just needs that opportunity to do it. So I don't mind stashing him and seeing what happens with Baker. I mean, you have unknown situation there. Can you handle the amount of sideline camera views of Hugh Jackson, an Jon Gruden one game? No, no, I it's gonna be great. It's no, it's going to be. I'm going to be wearing blackout glasses. This must watch television who I didn't Al maneuver. The other look Amari Cooper, we make all the jokes in the world. You can start Amari Cooper, he, he had ten, you're pulling them out of his secret resell. I will speak for myself. You're speaking because he's on your team when you're gonna start it? No, no, I look. I have actually binged Amari Cooper because I had other already playing them this week. Know that what I just said, I have been him this week because I have other better options. So when you said you always depend, what are those? You said you can did you mean it more as like the system will allow currently? Here's what I mean. I mean Amari Cooper, everyone wants to Benjamin because he sucked last week, but this is what Amari Cooper does he zigzags? He has big games and he has bad games. He had five targets last week ten the week before he's an home. This is not a tough match-up, and if you just chasing whatever happened last week, you're never going to get the big blow games. So what I'm saying is that if if you're if you're, you know toiling and you're going man, I don't have a good option, but I don't wanna play him. Then just play him. He still has the ability to have a solid gain. We're gonna move on, but who is the flex that you're playing over Cooper this week? Who is the. Tyler Lockett. No. Who is the flex the I basically played over well, now it's Alex Collins, Alex Collins. Okay. One that's in my a hatchet one and two forty Niners against the one and two chargers chargers or ten point favorite CJ Beth or behind center for the forty Niners. This is a forty six and a half point over under the chargers defense has been a visceral this year without joy, Bosa and their elite Cornerbacks. This could be an interesting game. I don't want fantasy owners to be afraid of forty Niners players that you would ordinarily start. So George kettle, I'm still okay with Matt Brita who right now is eight point four yards per touch best in the league amongst running backs. And earlier in the week, Carlos Hyde was getting over eight targets a game when seizure bathroom was starting quarterback, less? Yeah, Markey's Goodwin. What do you feel like can you start him as a wide receiver? Three this week I'm not. I would prefer to, whoa. Oh, over here. Man. I would prefer not to start George Kittle. He's again in that group of titans. I would definitely prefer to not start Goodwin Garcia, your Rita. You disagreed with my statement that that is what I was pulling up is that I actually do. I do not want to play forty Niners not may not named map Brita. However, I very much want to play Matt Brita. So it's kind of a one of those situations where I don't want. I don't feel like I'm anti forty Niners because I'm so in on Brita. But yeah, I mean, Beth 'Red he he doesn't improve things for good for any pass catchers. Other than burrito. He doesn't improve it and they haven't been that good already. So are you really hoping for here? Didn't it? I mean he did. He was good for kiddle. He was okay. Yeah. I mean, they, they were. College buddies. Yeah. Last season Beth rd played, I believe six games, completion percentage of fifty, four percent yuck. Four touchdowns in six games Yok six interceptions yuck and a passer rating of sixty. Nine yuck. Well, nice. But no, it's just pass as completion percentage was nice. We already talked about kina noun. We expect them to play. You're gonna play. Melvin Gordon, Philip rivers. You're gonna play Mike Williams in this match. If there aren't a lot of question marks at home for the Los Angeles chargers. When you are ten point favorites being ten point favorites, I think that you might be able to play awesome. Yeah. I guess that's the question. He's been pretty solid this season, and this could be the type of situation where you know maybe Melvin Gordon gets too early touchdowns and he's got a lot of work and their head to three scores, and you need to say, hey, let's let's give Melvin Gordon a little bit of rest or Alvin Gordon goes, oh, I got a headache. I need to come out. I agree. I agree that equity sneaky. This weekend, a sneaky actor. Yep. Yeah. I mean, it's, it's just like, look now equa has five Carrozza four carries and eleven carries. The eleven carries came when they were playing buffalo and they had the big lead. It's basically what I'm describing. He's had. Decent games and he looks great on the field. If Keenan Allen is out we, we've already spoke of our love for Mike Williams. But what about the other Williams? Tiro Williams. Are you interested in playing him as a wide receiver? Three of Keenan Allen is unfortunately out if he's out than Fisher. I'm not. I'm not happy, but I'm I'm willing. I mean, the targets will be there. All right. The two in one saints take on the one and two giants. The giants are three and a half point underdogs at home, but this over under his fifty and a half points because the saints can't stop anyone right now. This juicy given up a solid. A heavy fifty five game. They're just come into me. Fifty five fantasy points a game to the wide receiver position for the saints that's dead last in the league. They're also dead last against quarterbacks. That's why like ally, obviously, Beckham, but I love sterling Shepard in this matchup. I think you can start him. You have no Evan Ingram who is out so shepherd Beckham and Barkley are going to be the offense free lamenting and being that it's at home, I think you're going to see very good performances now is Eli going to outperform cousins last night, probably not anymore. So if you played Eli over in, like I told you to I, I don't think you're going to be disappointed. I think he is going to give you good game, but I probably won't be as good as this. This matchup is crazy is it should have a lot of points. I'm buying into the fifty point over. I'm firing a giants. If I can the the biggest question for me on the Saint side of the ball is Benjamin Watson, Jason would. So you're not super interested. George kiddle would you play someone deeper like Benjamin Watson over kill? No, I don't think I would play Benjamin watts seventy one yards last week, right? I look. He can get it done. But last week was the Atlanta Falcons a much, much, much better offense. And I think that the over is going to happen. I think this is going to be high scoring game and I like it, but the giants aren't the same high powered offense that Matt Ryan's, Atlanta, Falcons were in Atlanta, and so the the need for him to have seventy plus yard isn't going to be there. I don't think he has the down the field ability quite the same as he did a couple years ago, a love Benjamin Watson, but he's, I think he's just such a limit. He reminds me in a matchup like this of a few years ago, Dennis Pitta where he led the league in reception, right? It was a at the at the tight end position and he was pretty irrelevant for fantasy. Sure. Ted gins worth of flyer to. That's what I was gonna ask you on and that side of the ball. Ted Ginn you feel okay. About it. Yeah. Yeah. And sterling shepherd. I know we enjoy vice week, love him. I'm starting him over a lot of guys that I like. I have him ahead of Kennedy golladay who I like. I have them ahead of Tyler Boyd who I like think sterling shepherd is a really good play this week. I think the I'm not gonna all ready made an almost upset yesterday. I think the giants win the game. I think the giants win. I like what I saw from them last week. So I think they win the game for what it's worth in two thousand fifteen. When these two teams met New Orleans. One fifty two to forty nine and these two quarterbacks had a Gough. Yes, that was ins game. They combined for eight hundred fifty five yards. And I remember it. Well, it was it was point if that happens. Again. Benjamin Watson will be absolutely. Yeah. Watson's very interesting. I mean, we brought them up. You know, he's interesting. All right. The two and one ravens take on the one. One in one Steelers Steelers are three point favorites at home. Fifty one point over under, and there are a lot of players in this game that. Are interesting. You're starting Big Ben, James, Connor Antonio Brown juju Smith Schuster. There are decisions to make on the Pittsburgh side regarding Vance McDonald and Jesse, James. Are you confident enough after this monster performance by Vance McDonald to throw him out there. You know, clearly the Steelers utilize them. He did what they hoped, you know he could do, but we haven't seen it for an extended period of time. Where's your confidence level in Vance and advanced dance. I think he's a fine, a fine streaming option. You're not it'll or veins out still go with George kit. I'm gonna take the snap wines in been Watson in that matchup against the giants or Vance. Ooh, I probably take Watson. Yeah, I probably would as well it for all the damage. Did advanced Donald still only played on forty eight and a half percent of the snaps last week, Crabtree or Brown on the other side of the ball, John Brown, John Brown is I was talking to you. We were talking this morning at the gym. I also to see it happen. I'm hesitant like I don't want to say how much I love John Brown this week because it's that's one of those fires. I just want to keep covered because it could certainly burn me. But I mean, how do you not start John Brown? He's playing outstanding football. Joe flacco is averaging three hundred yards in two touchdowns a game. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been terrible there. They're, you know, four points a game to wider shot. The most deep targets in the league eighteen and a half yards per completion. It seems like a perfect match up. How perfect is it more perfect than Kennedy. Golladay this week? Yes, I prefer John Brown's Kennedy goaty that's I actually, I just get it. I just list I'm trying to decide. I'm trying to decide between golladay and John Brown this week are get it because of the match up, but I would still go with golladay. Yeah. I mean, this is why I was saying, I'm hesitant to say because it doesn't feel good. And I mean John Brown has a history of, you know, kind of disappointing when he's else. Does it feel good? Joe? You can stream Joe flacco Joe flacco is averaging two hundred ninety six passing yards in two touchdowns a game right now and the Steelers secondary. It's a tertiary or something. It's not. It's not what they need. Joe flacco has been very fantasy relevant now for a free, a pretty solid stretch of games in dating even in tobacco. I back to last, you look early in the offseason as soon as the draft was over. You know, we brought up that Lamar Jackson, Mike, just like a little bit of a fire under Joe flacco to throw Joe flacco used to have a great depot that was like his. He was a one trick. Pony was just a deep ball thrower and every year he just went shorter and shorter and shorter and became Alex Smith and was fantasy irrelevant. But now they got some weapons. It can get down the field like John Brown and Lamar Jackson, similar to Pat Mahomes coming in last season behind Alex Smith, forcing expensive, throw the ball deeper. I think Joe flacco is, you know, he's a decent play this week. It's cream Agri Monday night football. We're all excited for this. One that three. No chiefs. Pat Mahomes. Patrick Mahomes. Taking on the two and one Denver Broncos. Broncos. A four and a half point home underdogs, which is wild considering. It just tells you how well the chiefs are playing. This is a fifty five and a half. That's the highest over under. I can remember seeing a longtime how many number of planes we've hit the fifty five drop. Yeah, that's true too. How many of those points are the chiefs is the question. Yeah, I mean you this is going to be fun. The fact that there are so many fantasy relevant players on Monday night. Football match ups aren't going to be done on Sunday because the swings that can happen in this game are going to be great at home. Assuming your down as the Broncos. I think Philip Lindsey projects to be a phenomenal play. Would you would you say like start of the week? Yes. Yeah, would I? I'm into it. Yeah, the chiefs have given up one hundred and eleven receiving yards. Two running backs. That's their average. So they, they don't really. They don't pay attention when the receivers are when the running backs run out and catch the ball. We talked quite a bit about cream hunt earlier this year. You obviously starting him, but maybe your expectations for him over the next few weeks. If he doesn't get the targets, it's probably going to pull down his baseline. Yeah, that's a low base, but boob nut no hiring. Look and for reasons, reasons like that, the passing yards. It can go to the running back in addition to Emmanuel Sanders and all those. That's why case keenum is my stream of the week. Emmanuel. Sanders is my start of the week. I really believe that the that the Broncos are going to be able to keep up. You know, they're gonna keep up behind, but they're going to pace and try to come back and they're going to have yards and scores. And this just going to be a fun fantasy game. I wanna start. Everybody marries Thomas who's been very honest voice Freeman. Yeah, I think you, I think in this game you could start both Royce Freeman and Philip linzie. And you were talking about the Maria's just now has been disappointing. You're going to start him. And I think he's going to rebound this week. I mean there's, is there a player here that you wouldn't start? I mean, does the does the Broncos defense on the road? Is that give you hesitation like, okay, let's not start. Sammy walk. Were there at home Denver's at home. That's what I'm saying. I'm saying the chiefs are on the road. Okay. Sammy Watkins starting locking. No, that's like those. There are those out there that's at been. Robber wits can't do it again. Brandin cooks, Kupa aqap. You can start them all and the fire. The fire is wide enough and hot enough to to deliver. Case keenum though there's a lot of absorption now let me bring up. Let's see a name, Jeff Harmon. What do what do I mean? 'cause Jake bike. Was on the IRA had has another season ending injury. So he's the only tight end in town. He had four, Charles last week care. I agree. I don't take a dick but had eight catches in three games. I mean. Yep, I completely agree. Yep. Stream of the week, Jason chiefs defense look. They're out there on the field so much. I mean, it takes one or two place for the chiefs right now on offense. Some injury updates since the show started before we jump in a daily dose Bill Belichick said, we'll see when talking about Josh Gordon today and whether he'll be ready to play against the dolphins. Leonard fournette was a full participant in practice today Friday, but it's still officially questionable for the game. Joe mixon is out officially and geo Bernard will be in AJ. Green has practiced in full, so that's great news for degreen owners. And this one, Doug Baldwin will be ready to go Sunday against the cardinals. This comes from Pete Carroll feel like we missed a really opportune spot here for the news drop. Oh, you mean, oh, during his weekly radio interviews today, Pete Carroll indicate Seahawks wide receiver, Doug Baldwin flow be ready to go Sunday versus the card quote. He looks great. He looked great. He was explosive. We're really excited for him to play in this. This is a little stranger things feel to that knows that when that little. Yes, the sense. Yeah. So are we. Are we ready to get into the daily dose? We are. All right, let's do it. The daily knows brought to you by draft. On let the foot clan. No, as we head into yet another QB only draft. I don't just want to let them know that I won last week which I mean I do. I do want to let them know that maybe more importantly, Mike lost again and we own them three waters what we're taking the steps necessary to put some more of those waterbeds out there on the YouTube. Yeah, like I got a scuba suit. Yeah, Mike, Mike is going to be snorkel you ever. Let me ask you this question you ever been drowned before at least three times. Okay, so you know what it's coming, but we're going to do that. We're going to put those videos out there. We're gonna pay out the water bets who gets first pick. I believe that's UJA. I. And you're saying that to brag? Yeah. No. I mean, you randomly gets elected as I, you are bragging. I'm just saying I get patent homes. I'm, I mean, you know the draft hasn't started yet necessarily, but I, you know, you know who the number one quarterback is going to be right now. You stay in those magma lava. Just particles in you. You get scorched by the heat that is wow. Yeah, you're your word Smith. That's what they call you. Thanks. All right. I was. I'm in the middle. The meat of this draft sandwich. Yeah, and sticking with drew Brees love that over under. I also love drew Brees unlike Jason Moore, I'm gonna go with a couple of tried intrusion, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady. I like the ups to both at home. They both have opportunities to give you big, solid weeks and all and I'm grabbing Matt Ryan. Yeah, I'm really upset about staying in the flames. Matt. Ryan's been fantastic. Yeah, Matt, Ryan has been great. That's who I was hoping gets back to me. Unfortunately, he didn't. So I'm going to go with a pack of players that have also been great. Ben Rothlisberger at home is phenomenal. Love him. I'm taking him. I'm also going with Philip rivers against San Francisco. I think I'm fine. With those and I'm taking the ceiling of Shawn Watson, he gets to play the Indianapolis Colts defense is not scare me. Watson was finally performing for for fantasy and we'll fuller should be active. So I like, am I allowed to draft Jared Goff unfortunately can. But you would take zero points 'cause he's not playing on by the way you can play with us on draft dot com. Slash Bolers each and every week I'm taking Andy, Dalton, Mike, start of it, and then I'm just going to, you know why not? Why not a little fits magic. Yeah, I'm gonna throw him in there even though it's the bears. I know that Fitzpatrick will throw the ball d. he may have to do it in two seconds, but he's going to do it and I'm going to, I'm going to complete the New York Giants vs saints mad. I love that. So if that game goes off this, this match of we'll be over yet. Look with the news of Doug Baldwin coming back. I am going to snag Russell Wilson against air Zona. He's going to have a have himself a good time. You should have a nice mediocre game. Yes, no, I think Russell Wilson, if Doug Baldwin is healthy is going to do well. And would you play Doug Baldwin based on that news over Keelan coal this week? Yeah, easily. Would you play him over Marvin Jones this week, e. Allen's questionable. Guys, I just finished our drafting added Joe flacco. Oh, my roster. Yeah, it because used Mayfield because I wanna have fun on Sunday. Yeah, so that is it for the draft. That's funny. They have a new snake draft recap page here. Oh, hot, pick Patrick Mahomes Mr.. Relevant. Joe flacco. Throw that in there. So that's kind of funny. Yeah, I got Pat Mahomes. Philip rivers been Rothlisberger Russell Wilson and Carson Wentz was my final pick Rogers Brady, Dalton, Fitzpatrick. Flacco. I got drew Brees Matt Ryan to Shawn Watson ally manning and Baker media him. Yeah. Why. Took Baker mania, hey, if you wanna watch these quarterbacks play and see every game on your time.

Slash feast for more information. All right, Evan, let's do it part do part to raiders chargers. What do you got. Yeah, like starting off with this one because I think that this one can be high scoring as well. We left off on the falcons Steelers game in part one, and this can be the late afternoon version of that. This raiders passing game has made strides every single week and guess what they are installing a new offense and dudes are learning new positions and they had to cut their third receiver. And then they brought him back in the second game and they've been moving Jordy Nelson around and you know, they have kind of settled on Jared cook as their passing game centerpiece. And you know they've learned that don't play Doug Martin play, marshawn Lynch, you know, and they've, they are learning things about their team and. I liked the way that everything is kind of coming together and there's been like an upward trajectory, and we just saw them shred, a Browns passed defense that had shut down. Ben Rothlisberger drew Brees in the first month of the season. So that was impressive. Man. And I like Derek Carr as a streamer this week. I really like it because I have a ton of him in best ball because no one wanted him. But I think I think that Amari Cooper, you look at the the receivers that have hurt the chargers in particular, their speed guys, tyreek hill Brandin cooks and Kupa ran four, four, two coming out of Alabama. And also I looked looked looking at players, separation, numbers, wide receiver, separation numbers on next gen stats among players with thirty or more targets. Amari Cooper at three point, eight average separation yards at target has the highest separation rate in the NFL right now. So he is due to get no pin finally. And so. I would continue to roll with him. He's been super up and down. I mean, it's been too bad games and two good games, and that's very much like Amari Cooper, and it will be very much like him to not show up this week again. But I think like the match up and I like the way that he's being used and I like the the volume and I liked the way that that just general upward trajectory of the raiders passing game. Jordy Nelson us kind of settled in as fifty two percent slot receiver. You know, doesn't quite have the big playability as Amari Cooper of, but he's been playing well enough to be wide receiver. Three slash flex starter in this game. Jared cook has been absolute animal. Leads the team in virtually every receiving category leads all NFL tight ends in receiving yards and the chargers. This was a significant loss that sure that people are not really gonna even notice, but cozier white. The chargers. Starting weakside linebacker. Fourth round rookie out of West. Virginia has been playing really, really well. And he was actually a safety West Virginia. He had his knee scoped on Monday. He has been an awesome coverage linebacker. You know. So that is a significant concern for the shar Gers pass coverage against tight ends. And as he left last week's game, George kiddle just went nuts against the chargers. So. Lou like the matchup usage. Everything about Jerry cook, breakout at age, thirty, one fun to see and the backfield marshawn Lynch has been unbelievable, and he also lost a bunch of yards last week on technicalities. Fficials he should have had this sixty yard touchdown run, but the officials blew the play dead because they thought people were piling up, but he was he was just in the process of breaking other tackle. I mean, marshawn Lynch is he looks like the bee's mode of old. He's one hundred thirty rushing where his most since the two thousand fourteen season in Seattle. The chargers have been okay, not great against the run. They are getting back, Corey legit this week, but Joey Bosa is not back in Kaiser. White certainly played a part in their run defense. I was glad to have gotten marshawn Lynch and on a lot of teams this year. You know, and I entered the season certainly not fully confident that he was going to be in every week, fantasy starter ba- right now I'm considering him and Rb one on the other side, Philip river should light up this raiders defense raiders have given up the, they don't rush the passer at all. Okay. Means just. Squeaky clean pockets all day for quarterbacks against. The raiders. And what that does is it allows defenses to hurt them. And the raiders have allowed. The fourth most completions of twenty plus yards in the NFL and Philip rivers, more than anything. Dude, love the truck it down field. I think that bodes well for Mike Williams, and I think it bodes well for Taiwan Williams. Those guys are not necessarily reliable, fantasy starters, but the matchup sets up well for them and know Travis Benjamin. He will be out again with a foot injury. And so that kind of narrows the playing time and the targets for this receiver core and that. Bodes well for tyrel and Mike. Kina now. And I think you know, as a guy who has finished below seven yards and been held scoreless in three straight games. I mean, that's disappointing for a guy that we all drafted to be a wide receiver one, but I think that he can get right back rolling in this game. The raiders have been just getting clocked in the slot where they play Leon hall, who is like forty five and slot receivers have been crushing them on a weekly basis and Keenan Allen is over sixty percent slot, and he also can go outside and make big plays down the field. He is high in Josh firms, Myers Bilo air yards model this week. Melvin Gordon has been fantastic refinery. Getting fishing Melvin Gordon, you know, over his first three years, he lived on volume. But and he struggled with fishing and his yards per carry was poor. None of that is the case this year. He's getting volume in the efficiency that that is fireworks in fantasy football. The raiders have, of course been terrible against the run. Melvin Gordon elite Rb one play Austin echo, I think can can get in on on the mix here. You know, he's got double digit touches in three or four games. And you go back and look at the the runs by Nick Chubb against the raiders defense in how frigging slow the raiders defense looks Austin four to guy. I think he can explain that we can move onto the next one. The next one is a game. I'm going to be at the Vikings and the eagles al-shabaab Jeffrey wasn't expecting that in his first game back. Yeah, I wasn't even expecting him to play, but he's ready to roll. One thing to remember about these guys that don't aren't dealing with leg injuries. They can stay in shape. I mean, they can. They can. They can get role and real quick. And we saw that. From out Sean, Jeffrey immediately goes over one hundred yards had no more than ninety two yards in any game last season, so, but that you know, that was a big game for him. He's going to be shadowed by savior, roads. In this game. Now, these played in January and the Vikings did not shadow out Shaw. Jeffrey was Avia roads in that game of they did match up with. They didn't match up three times on targets, and I'll shot Jeffrey all three for twenty seven yards. Davy roads has not been great. He's not been his his usual self this year. So. You know, I think there is definitely some elevated concern, but I think the out Sean Jeffrey should be started pretty confidently as a wide receiver to I've seen it mentioned or written. A few places that. Nelson floors. Production has slipped the last two weeks because he was playing outside more any struggles outside, but that's not not the case he is. He's actually played in the slot more the last two weeks than he did in the first two weeks. Fifty, five percent slot in weeks one and two seventy percent. The last two weeks. What happened in wasn't that in week three. The of the eagles wanted with this very, very tight end heavy game plan, Dallas Qatar at a monster game. Zakar set a targets and Nelson only had five targets would happen. Last week is that he got twelve targets, but he dropped three of them and Carson Wentz miss them a couple times. So you know, I, it's a game of inches, you know, and game plans can can you know, mess things up and you know you can't be leaving opportunities on the table like Nelson Aguilar data catch his. You don't have any drops in the first three games. If he catches all three of those balls that he dropped last week, you know, we're talking about six eighty and no one's complaining about six for eighty is double digit targets in all three of the four games and it's matchup. This week is soft against MacKenzie. Alexander, you can ask Cooper Cup about that. You know they, they could definitely use Nelson galore the way that the Rams used Cooper Cup. Get matched up on linebackers, get them, get them running against MacKenzie. Alexander, I'm sticking with Nelson Aglona everywhere that I have. Zakar double digits and all four games. His area arts are up since Carson. Wentz replaced. Nick foles is not have touchdown yet. You know, I think that the positive regression is absolutely coming, seven red zone targets that is tied for, I'm sorry that is third in the NFL among tight ends. These gonna get in the end zone this week, the Vikings had not been good at covering tight ends their safeties, especially here in Harrison Smith. I, I've been surprised at how often airs and Smith has been getting beaten on always exploited for it either. I mean, George kiddle especially in that week, one game beat Hairston Smith numerous times and harassment was lucky that either Garoppolo overthrew kiddle or kiddo drop the pass. Dallas Qatar went from sixty seven percents naps in week three to forty one percent last week only two targets. You know out Sean comes back. They're gonna be able to play more three receiver sets and teams love to play three receiver sets that's a, that's their preference as much as we would like to see a lot of Dallas Qatar. You know, it's not necessarily going to happen on a consistent basis. Sure that he's gonna pop up for good games. He's a really good prospect. He's a really good player, but relying on him and fantasy is going to be difficult. As for the backfield. Jay Ajayi came back last week, you know, he played sixty three percent of the snaps. Eighteen targets are both season-highs. His matchup is really difficult against the Vikings and we don't know of Cory climent is he going to be back, staring sproles going back. It's hard to say as we do this on Wednesday on Wednesday morning, but I love the way that he looked. He looked fine. You know, coming off that the fracture in his back and how much he played. That kind of stuff bodes well for the future. And then of course it Wentz. Was the quarterback thirteen last week. We've not seen him rip off any big runs yet. He did have a solid first down run in the first start. But other than that, we have not seen him ripping off big runs. I think that he is a like a, a free quarterback, one slash to who I would lean toward starting because the Vikings defense is not traveled. Well, twenty nine or more points allowed four of their last five road games on the Viking side. I think this is going to be a very, very pass heavy game because Davin cook still bang-up. They've been getting nothing from their running game whatsoever. So I think the Kirk cousins is going to get a ton of volume. It's worth noting that because they are coming back from the long layoff. Or the especially long layoff. Because of that after that Thursday night. Shootout loss to the Rams Reshad hill Riley reef Pat l. fine. All guys that have dealt with injuries. Those guys should be a little bit healthier. You know, this is a lot of people complain about the Thursday night games. This is one of the positive aspects, the Thursday night games, and you've talked about it Ross. They get those extra days so that bodes well against eagles defence that leads the NFL and quarterback kids. But I think they were going to be like a fifty pass attempt game for Kirk cousins, and the way to attack the eagles of course, is with your wide receivers, the Vikings happen to have maybe the best wide receiver duo in the NFL and Adam SeaLand and Stefan digs Stefan dates had his best game of the season so far last week against the Rams. He runs the most routes at left corner, and we talked about it on on part one. The eagles left corner. Jalen mills has been getting rocked to the point where you know, Jim Schwartz eagles defensive coordinator starting to get asked, hey. You know, in press conferences, hey, gonna bench Jalen mills. It's almost time, but you know, either way this is a great matchup for Stefan digs eagles are a little bit better than the slot, but I don't feel it has a hundred yards in four straight games to begin to season just just absurd. He second NFL in receiving yards and catches because of the elevated pass volume. You know, rolling pretty confidently with Kyle Rudolph. He is clearly behind Stefan digs atoms Zealand in the pecking order. Twenty two targets through four game just a little over five per game, but do score touchdowns and I love the elevated volume ultra Robinson needs to start putting pressure on the quad Treadwell for the Vikings. Third receiver job. I'm not sure that that matters for us this week, but it is something to keep in mind. Audrey Robinson played with Kirk cousins in Washington, they know each other. I'm sure that Rick Spielman you know when he was looking at guys, two guys. To sign off the street, talk to Kirk and said, and Kirk was like, yeah, absolutely. Get Aldridge Robinson, we can move onto the next one. Next one AirAsia cardinals at the San Francisco forty Niners. CJ Beth was a lot better than expected. Last week. Moved offense pretty consistently from the outset of the game. Do toughest nails. That's the thing though. He's gotta be tough because I keep laxed like some sort of element of pocket awareness because. The only quarterback that I have seen take more Sunder hitch. It's CJ Beathard is probably Robert Griffin. The third just does not have a knack for being able to avoid monster hits got to so bad last week that. They had to insert Nick Mullins like for a player to. Now this week, western rich Berg for United starting center in both the forty Niners shorting tacos, Joe Staley. Mike mcglinchey are considered questionable with knee injuries. I think that rich Berg and mcglinchey will play Staley, not lesser or less certain about him. That's concerning against the cardinals because the cardinals strength as a team. And you know, that's it's relatives. Everything else they don't really have. Many strikes strengthened the team is Chandler Jones guys that can rush the passer, their top twelve NFL hits and sacks. So CJ Beathard I think is a two quarterback league starter, but I did like what I saw from him last week, especially for the cause of George kiddle because George kindle did not produce was j. Bathurst in the lineup last year they four starts together. Killed in, do anything any of zero. Touchdowns did go over twenty five yards in any of them. So this was promising to see him lead team and targets lead the team in area arts rip off an eighty two yard touchdown, the fairness, the chargers just left him wide open on that seem ball on, but then he showed his athleticism by just outracing the entire chargers secondary to the house. Remember this guy had a better spark score than David joke, who Jay Howard and Evans Ingram coming out in the two thousand seventeen draft class. He is a legit, freak athlete and you that showed up on that play. PR Markey's good. Went hurt again and hamstring. This has been the story of Markey's Goodwin's career. He's teased us at times, but he's hurt. Again. Peter Garson hasn't scored a touchdown since like two twelve. Truck Taylor, Kendrick born don't really want anything to do with those guys cardinals. Josh Rosen was pressured on fifty percent of his drawbacks last week colonels. Gotta get some stuff fixed man day. They've got to get their protection skis fixed, gotta figure something out, but. It is also true. The Josh Rosen just was holding onto the ball little bit longer, but he made some throws that we didn't see anything. Like that from Sam. Bradford the first three weeks fitting the balls into into tight spots in tight windows, especially on a couple of catches to Ricky seals Jones. Chad Williams share Williams almost two touchdowns, but the first one was overturned. I still think that after that game, the only receiver that I would consider start -able on the cardinals would be Larry FitzGerald who led the team in targets in area arts. Christian kirk. How did game in week three against the bears and not so much last week. Ricky seals Jones as the big playability you know, it's it's definitely like toolbox to to be able to have a good game, but. You know, we're we're working off a very small number of positions here, Josh Rosen at fifteen completions. Last week hundred eighty one hundred eighty yards. Not many pass. Catchers are gonna be able to produce until he starts completing more passes gaining more yards. David Johnson did come alive. Twenty three touches over one hundred total yards scored a touchdown. That's what we wanna see from David Johnson wasn't an efficient outing. They're still pulling him on third downs because they do not trust him in Pash protection. But he's like, literally, gave him, you know, they made them like, the second is running back in that fell and they're not playing on third downs. I, you know, I, I guess he's got to do his job better. I complain all I want. He's the coaches, they know. But you know, it's it's definitely frustrating from fantasy standpoint that we are not getting the full Monty with David Johnson still get no catches until deep in the second half last week we can move onto the next one. Let's get to the Rams who've just been unbelievable. And the Seahawks who have found their running game, which is basically anybody other than Rashad. Penny was Carson. Now it's Mike Davis. Yeah. And I mean, they said they're going to stick with the committee when Chris Carson comes back. So good luck. Good luck to you. Trying to figure out that fantasy. Rams haven't been great run defense, but not. I mean the, I think the only way that someone is really trustworthy year is if Chris Carson out again, he did miss week four with a hip injury, then you can sort of trust Mike Davis. But even in that scenario, like. Is there even any doubt that the Rams were just gonna light this team up. I mean, that's what they did do last year as what they've been doing to teams this year. And I drafted Jared Goff in high stakes league before the season, and we're looking ahead to the schedules and we're looking at, you know, the. He's gonna have the Vikings in week four and other. They have another tough match-up coming up. I thought the Seahawks might be. All right. We're gonna have to start looking for streamers about about week four. We haven't been looking for streamers, you know, we're, we're starting Jerry golf every damn week and same with Robert woods Cooper cop in Brandin cooks, and there's nothing to fear about the Seahawks secondary. Rarely. I mean, I like shot Griffin is a player. Justin Coleman ethic is a good player. But these are not guys that we're trying to really avoid from fantasy standpoint. And plus the Rams have been moving their receivers all over the place. They knew that Patrick Peterson in. Week, three was primarily going to be on one side, so they moved Brandin cooks the other side. They're, they're spart rationally run NFL tea, and that gives them an advantage over their opponents. And you know there. Like, and it's also true that they're, they're like, distribution of targets is very narrow because the tight ends don't get anything. And the fourth receiver doesn't get get anything. And you know, there is no number two running back really getting anything. So it's girly, it's Cup, it's woods. It's cooks and it's golf, and you start him every week. Russ Wilson has not been running the ball, and that is a huge detriment to his fantasy production. I, I was hoping that in the first three weeks, it was going to be. That was just a small sample of him not running, but it is continued. And that is concerning that puts him really toward the fringe of quarterback one slash twos. We did see Kirk cousins, have a great game against this Rams secondary, which is depleted last week, and I think that Russell Wilson is fantasy starter. But in terms of his upside, you know, we really cannot expect him to produce top-five fantasy numbers when he is in running. It's a huge part of his game. It's a huge part of his box score game. Doug Baldwin came back last week, I thought looked fine and played a ton of snaps ski his eighty percent of the snaps. So. He's a definite definite lock in Indiana. See, lineups guy's gonna move Tyler Lockett outside, which actually gives him the best match of Nicole. Roby calm and is really good in the slot for the Rams in the Rams are missing. Keep to lead outside. So, but I think Tyler Lockett goes back to being a boomer bus big, play dependent wide receiver, four, whereas he was a wide receiver, three bordering on wide receiver to when dog Baldwin was out. Tyler Lockett was playing in the slot. David Moore played head of brain Marshall last week, David Moore, second year guy out of. East central in Oklahoma, never heard of that before, but. He was a guy that was he's a top ten sports spark receiver in the two thousand seventeen draft. Good athlete Bates of awesome plays in the preseason, and he is a guy that should be owned in all dynasty. Leagues will dislo out for the year that leaves Nick Vinet as the Seahawks tight end. Mildly interested in him as a streamer we can move onto the next one Cowboys Texans. What do you got in the battle of Texas Sunday night? Yes, Zeke Elliott dealing with an ankle sprain and bursitis in his knees fully expected to play. But this is a reminder roster, rod Smith. Rod Smith is actually, I think better receiver than as q Elliott, of course, not quite as good of a runner. I mean, there are only three or four people on the planet that that can can have that claim. Next, Zeke Elliott. But rod Smith should be on rostered in every single fantasy league. You know if that can't get it done here in fantasy. I. This, this might be it. The Texans have been getting just crushed by fantasy quarterback production. They woke up Andrew luck last week. They lost Aaron Kovin their best cornerback to do two or two like looks like six week ankle injury previously lost their starting left cornerback, Kevin Johnson to injured reserve. Jonathan, Joseph is old. They lost under hall. How earlier in the offseason due to cancer. They, you know they, they are just very, very spoiled -able in the stuck in there. The Cowboys. Of course, if the Texans have we're secondary or bottom three secondary. The Cowboys certainly have a bottom three receiver core. But you know, this is this should be an opportunity for Dr exploited. I I'm not trying to stream. I think they're better streamers, but he is to quarterback the starter for sure this week still want no part of any of the Cowboys pass catchers. The Shawn Watson. Three straight top ten fantasy performances at the quarterback position. I'm not sure we'll fuller is gonna play. And if he does not play. Aggravated, his hamstring injury. Feed is not play that bodes well for key, Cutie out of Texas Tech reminded me of like on the Taylor. Gabriel t y Hilton spectrum coming out of college. Most of his damage on short routes at Texas Tech, but also showed some ability to. Like pop the lid in last week we saw him used primarily on short routes. Little pop passes. Manufacturer touches. He was clearly a big part of the game plan. Even before will fuller left. Fifteen targets. He's a fantasy starter. Now, the Cowboys have a really good secondary. We've talked about this a lot, but it's mostly because they are. They're big physical and athlete at outside cornerback with chewed OB Leuze and Byron Jones. That doesn't necessarily apply to KiKi cuties five, ten one eighty he's going to be used in the slot is going to be used around the line of scrimmage. He's not going to be like, you know, matching up on one on one 'isolation routes against Cowboys boundary cornerback. So. Can you to either way he's he's good to go. I think as a fantasy starter, I think he's a wide receiver three slash flax if willful or plays. And he is a wide receiver on water. She retu- if will fuller does not play coming off the fifteen target NFL debut the under Hopkins is awesome. You know the matchup is certainly no gimme, but deandre Hopkins is better than pretty much anyone that he faces every single week. So start with confidence. Lamar Miller offered blue. This is starting to devolve into a an even rotation, and that's due to Lamar Miller's lack of affective, -ness of, but offer blue should be rostered in all leagues. At this point, this is still an explosive high scoring offense. He profiles a goal line slash short yardage back. So. He should be owned everywhere. We can move onto the next one. Last game. It is Monday night football. I will be on the sideline as drew Brees breaks the record for all time, passing yards in the NFL. It's the Redskins and the saints, Evan. Yeah, that's right. I was listening. I was driving home from from Saint Louis on. On Monday Monday night, and I was listening to Westwood One and Kurt Warner and. Can't remember the other guy's name, but having Harlan, probably yes, Kevin, Harlan, I'm clueless. Yes, Kevin Harlan, and they're like, we're gonna have Ross Tucker on the sideline next week. So I'll be listening. I will be listening, Redskins saints. This is gonna be shootout, man. The saints are the Redskins are coming off and especially long lay-off because they had their by another on the Monday night game, and they kind of needed that Trent Williams was starting to get banged up. They they have and you know, it's like a rest period for Chris Thompson and George. We've seen the Josh and Paul Richardson are going to do nothing. We anticipated that coming in the season. We until we in that has come to fruition. But this sort of game facing in the, there's a reason that the Superdome has been nicknamed the course field of the NFL and that's because when people go to play there, they tend to get their their numbers elevated. And so I look Smith is like the number one streamer of the week. The saints can't rush the passer at all. We're still you could try to fire dart dachshund or a Richardson, but I, I really don't have high hopes for either one of them. It's, it's Jordan Reed. It's Chris Thomson. And same. Crowder, Jamison, Crowder. We finally saw him do some things in the week, three game before the by. Saints are going to continue to struggle against the slot after losing Patrick Robinson to injured reserve. The game is a little scary for Adrian Peterson. I know it is a revenge game for him against Sean Payton in the saints ship them off during the during last season. After he, you know, just was highly ineffective in their offense. But. If the saints jump out to a lead. That is not gonna you know, that's gonna benefit Chris Thompson, and that's not going to help. Adrian Peterson, Adrian Peterson could get end up getting forced into a situation where he's barely on the field. He finishes with eight carries. I mean, he's a very, very boomer bus play this week. It's also possible that they come out and they try to use Adrian Peterson as much as they can because they want to try to keep your breeze off the field. You know, there are definitely different scenarios that we can come up with. But at the end of the day, I think he's a very, very volatile, boom, bust play. On the other side, you know, the Redskins defense, their defensive strength is against the past. They above average, pass, rush, they're and their defensive backs are average to above average, but it's definitely nothing to fear from the standpoint of Michael Thomas or drew Brees them, and Josh Norman never moves always plays left cornerback. Michael, Thomas plays in the slot. A bunch plays on the left side of bunch. So we don't have to worry about that. Alvin co. So we're going to get back Mark Ingram. This going to be his first game of the season after his suspension. Pencilling him in for nine to fourteen touches in this game. I think he's a low end Rb to decent or fairly strong flex option in this game, he looked really good in the preseason. So I like that about him, but I still think this can be Alvin kamera's backfield and I think it's going to be, you know, we, we started to see that see the saints try to transition to that. As last year progressed, they used Alvin Kamara more in the mirror more on the goal line down the stretch. She was getting more snaps. He's eating more touches. So I think it's going to be, you know, like when when everything reach reaches like. When everything's firing firing on all cylinders, it's going to be like a seventeen to twelve weekly split between these guys if not more if not like nineteen to ten. But I think that that's the split that I am tipping. Ted Gan has been super productive in home games since joining the saints. So he is an intriguing dart, throw in a potential or a likely shootout, but you know, pass Michael Thomas past advert chimera than you know, too much lesser extent marking room. It's really just a mishmash of dudes. You know, it's Ben watching it is Cameron Meredith. It is Trey Quant Smith. It is Ted Ginn and you're trying to figure out those guys. Weekly basis is going to be hard. They're. They're all interesting to think about a specially when they're playing at the Superdome because because of the elevated scoring, elevated yards and environment. But they're, you know, they're going to be difficult to have concrete forecasts about on a week to week basis. Terrific work. As always, Evan, you are a stud end.

Ty Montgomery, Boston Scott and More Week 17 Starts and Sits (01/03 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"Sunday morning week. Seventeen if you're ready for some dfs if you're setting some championship lineups here. We go help you out right now on fantasy football today and five boarding anime dummies here. One final time to set your lineup so that we will have offseason shows on advanced football today in five three episodes per week victory. you're following us streaming us on spotify. I actually had some pretty big news over the weekend. He did start with the new orleans. Saints know alvin kamara. No latavius murray no twain wash. They're all out at carolina today. Tie montgomery starter. Sit oh i really hope you don't have to but it's not not a bad option. I would expect we're going to see a more pass. Heavy approach from new orleans than what we've seen as of late. I wonder if we see a few more runs for taksim. Hilbert montgomery's at borderline starter. So we bump it up ju- breeze. I bumped him up a little bit. I didn't quite get him into my top twelve. But i i did bump up just a little bit. And he's a fine borderline starter. And the matt ryan range. Do you feel like montgomery is too obvious and dfs or must play in dfs. I don't think anyone is a must play in this monstrosity of a week. Seventeen slate i mean. We've got a dozen running backs that are not priced as starters are going to get fifteen plus touches probably so okay all right well. He's it my lineup. Miles sanders is also out sunday night. Game against washington. Your interest in boston. Scott who had fifteen or more touches in Weeks seven and eight without mile sanders. Yeah the only thing is. I wonder what percentage of those touches. He's going to get now. If i would expect it's going to be more of a committee type approach. This is a bad match up against a very good washington defense. I like montgomery slightly more than boston. Scott okay. Alex smith and tear maclaurin could play tonight. Is it too risky as of right now as a eight. Am east eastern time Is it too risky. Start maclaurin we generally go with what adam schefter in report tweets out and they've schefter tweeted out this morning. That expects tara maclaurin play. So i don't want to use a i think he's a borderline start. Even if you do. Alex smith is not throwing the ball downfield very much in washington's not thrown very much when they've had a leading expect them to have a lead but as a number three wide receiver. There's a ton of upside there Christian kirk is on the reserve covid list there at the rams. Is that change. Anything for murray. I was already pretty skeptical of murray as a top twelve quarterback and now i am even more so i would rather start mitchell. Trubisky than cover murray. How much faith do you have in the lions passing game with. Matthew stafford expected to start against minnesota day. It's a good matchup. They're going to go up a ton of points. they're going to be chasing the scores. If you could guarantee me. Staffers going to stay healthy. The whole game. I would like marvin jones a high in number two borland number one type wide receiver. I think he saved for is low in number two on starting. Dj hawkins starting be andre swift. Okay alexander madison clear from the concussion protocol. Are you on madison today. With this matchup at detroit. He's a mid range number two running back. i think he has top twelve upside. Certainly we i would not expect him to do as much as dalvin cook does in the passing game and we do have to keep in the back of our mind. How much madison struggled. The one time cook was out earlier this year that i think you're probably starting madison. I definitely liked him. More than boston's got a gun. Readout range okay. Finally last one the buffalo bills as of right now. We still don't know what they're going to do. So what did you tell fantasy players. Who are thinking about josh allen stefan digs etc. I would tell them that unless you have another starting option that you like. I'm probably starting them. I think that they're going to play at least part of the game. Probably half the game is my guess. Would you start that if you don't really know well i'm not to go start. Somebody like stefan digs in half a game is probably still a top fifteen wide receiver. Okay so you wouldn't start a manual would rather to. I think there's more risk and terry maclaurin than there isn't sure because maclaurin reportedly he might be limited. But what about. You know. A nelson agholor mike williams or emmanuel sanders. Somebody like that. Who could have a big game or stefan six. Yeah i'm probably starting digs over those guys all right well. That's your final starter. Sid episode of fantasy football today and five. But like i said we've got off season content for you. we're going to give you some. Nfl draft profiles. Things like that any breaking news.

Week 10 Studs & Stinkers + Weekly Rewind, Kupp Kupp Goose

"Scoreless sudden why was Iraq owes. You listened to the fantasy footballers Welcome to the fancy footballers podcast coming to you from Pristina. OPTION DOT COM studios with your home's Andy Holloway Jason Moore and Mike Right We're happy to be with you. This wonderful Monday November eleventh eleven. It's Veterans Day. Or what's going on veterans. We WanNA give a shout out to all of you who have served and sacrificed for this country. Sorry thank you remember you today. Monday November eleventh two thousand nineteen getting through week ten here fire any Mike and Jason Back. There was some good some bad. Some ugly which is radically are three nicknames. Not going to say who's who I call ugly you well that made that easy not the one. I thought we'd be competing for you know. I just wanted to get it right out of the way lots of craziness craziness as always in the fantasy football landscape for week ten. We've gotTa Monday night football game this evening. Very Unlikely. That George Kitto will be out there tonight Which really does affect my view of the outcome? And I you know Seattle's a great team and George Kittles such an important weapon so I'm curious to see what Jimmy I moved Jimmy G. Down in my rankings. After this I it's got his his best weapon missing but you can follow us on twitter at the F. F. ballers instagram dot com slash fantasy football. Fantasy Footballers Waller's DOT com. It's Monday we hit the social media. We asked you for some one liners from the weekend. Yes a lot of stories about Cooper Cup situation. We've got a Cup Cup goose. I like that one. The obvious one Pooper Cup Gouzer Cup. Yes and no coupe for you know Cook for you know like that was a good one. Lamar Jack Spin Okay. Yeah that's great. That's been moved. My I understand on that made the list a marvelous Jackson. Rico that's been tested. You Know Sake. One Yard cle- sense. That's a real stretch through saquon Barkley earthly and Saquon Barkley. Yes let's step back into our domain Ezekiel smelly it. Oh yeah take nick death or he's I can't even say that it's stinky stinky. Oh Elliott Yeah Okay cuyler. You weren't as sophisticated as clearly clearly. cuyler Murray Gay Christian Berserk Down with that Mike. Gross Nikki taking Mike is sucky. Let's see if it's brown flush it down in Aj clown but I think we reserve that for ab where's Waller Fair. And Lastly Amari super really is the eleven reception. You could talk about Amari Cooper for days because because the difference they showed it last night on the broadcast of what Dak Prescott numbers are across the board as well as the cowboys record with. And Without Amari Cooper over the last two years like we make the joke running backs. Don't matter sometimes you know you you move guys in around wide receivers matter. Oh yes goodness gracious chain. I and he hasn't been paid. That's because passing matters. Yeah does US does. We had a waterbed Mike Juju top twenty four. You Lost Jalen Ramsey one that one did you hear Jude. Did you talk about the. They're like you know Jalen Ramsey came out and said he's no Antonio Brown and then Jews like no I'm not did you say scoreboard. No he could have but he came out and said. Hey I'm I'm not as good as a B. is yet but I'm working on. Didn't that Jalen had a good game. But let's get into the rewind weekly rewind right weekly rewind brought to you by these sleeper APP. We did win in our sleeper league right week when we we want a league one are we number one in the sleep early one or two. We'll think we lost last week. So we're like eight and two maybe bad not trample all right. We had some surprises big time surprises in the name's Matthew Stafford Endless Shawn McCoy. Matthew Stafford ruled out we. He didn't believe this was a situation. Where Mattie Stafford had played in one hundred and thirty plus consecutive games and they've talked about his back for two years so you hear hear that during the week and you say okay? It wasn't maintenance day. It's like Saturday X.. Where it's also on Saturday was oh stafford? Stafford probably going to the play way Hobo. I know we heard about it. We talked about it on the show for a minute but it was like. Oh yeah he popped up on the injury report the back issue but this was not abnormal abnormal for Matthew Stafford to be on the injury list with a back issue but when he was ruled out very surprising and surprising because I know he wanted to play I I think he would have played had he been cleared. Yes he wanted to play with a broken back and he's a tough guy. It's so funny. The the a handful of people that comes to mind is Matthew Stafford and Frank Gore. When they started their career they were such injury prone lady of guys they were just? Just oh my gosh. He'd be good except can't stay on the field and now they're like as solid as it gets. I'm bringing this up while he missed the game. Yeah reminds me of Forte. Two Four T. We started in Marvin Jones though. Five for seventy seven Golladay. Three fifty seven and a touchdown Solos guys. They were probably stuck in your lineup. And you didn't diet the hand of Jeff Driscoll you'll like many have like many Lewis let Shawn McCoy was a healthy scratch because quote the chiefs. I wanted to keep them fresh down the stretch. Well that was report from from one person. Yeah and that was a report that came after other reports talking about some other reasons that they might be benching him. I don't know that seemed like a make good while Damian Williams fumbled now McCoy had done to kind of get himself out of the good graces aces. So now what well he yes he did fumble he had and it was. It was pretty egregious fund. Boy was he tried to cut back and really make something happen. That was not at their ends up giving up the defensive score. However we're now in back to back weeks of one hundred plus yards from scrimmage for Damian Williams and he is the best running back on the team well? That might be true Mike but that doesn't always matter. It did this game but it's hard I'm not GonNa read into snap counts on a game. They put on McCoy and the bench either. So it's a good game. Nineteen seventy seven by far the most carries these had four point. One and carry five receptions start worthy asset every week right now my point it is if you have two running backs one is one looks great. He's crushing it for you. And the other one is not not doing that. They both have a fumbling problem. You're going to go with the player who's better even though they both have Pat Mahomes and just throw it all every play. All of that said Arrowhead Pat and they had the better running back and they lost. Yeah that was kind of a crazy game. devante Freeman did not return to the Saints Game Foot Injury Injury Mri. Today Ito Smith got put on injured reserve before the game. Brian Hill Hill very popular name. And he's a good running back. He's much much better than Ito Smith. and so I I. He's must pick up to me. Tyler Boyd needed help off field late in the game ankle injury aged green. Still out out. They're going to reassess it though right at the end of the year reassess. He's not going to be back. I don't think rural But but if if Tyler Boyd is out in Green is out in we've got Ryan Finley. Who looked like down and out by the end Alex Ericsson Auden. Tater the whiteouts and yet Joe Mixing looked outstanding. What it wants yes I do? It's up to you could have done five weeks ago. Let me tell you what it was. It was thirty rushing attempts thirty in a game. You lost forty eight to thirteen an old as they did a nice last few all know Callahan. Bill Callahan says they won. Oh Bill Keller Yes aced on the rushing at ten you win what choice do you have. uh-huh with Finlay. You gotta give the ball to Joe. Mixon two receptions thirty carries third consecutive week. You were happy with him for fantasy. There's a hope there's hope for you yet mixing owner. Yeah maybe Tie Johnson left the lions game with a concussion Jd mckissick opt-in carries in the game. That led them Jordan Wilkins Ankle. Injury didn't return. Trey Burton hurt again. How and then we've got Patrick Peterson left of the calf injury. The and the Bugs Game Wink Wink. What does that he he left with a playing baddest better sites? I doubt that I I would think he left with an injury based on. I think he wants to play football. Marshon lattimore failed to return for the saints as well and then it kind of got lost over the weekend but the bears. I did release Mike Davis and it was based on them getting a compensatory pick. They released him at that time. Whatever the case may be if someone signs him and so it is Montgomery and then you saw increase usage for Cohen? It seemed like in this game. You never know whether it's going to do Josh Gordon's a game time decision tonight. George kills doubtful. All as far as Josh Gordon goes is it. I mean on the hands off tonight yeah. I'm not playing. Yeah nobody yeah. You can't be starting Josh Gordon. I think the issue is if Josh Gordon is there. What does he do to the other receivers that you might be starting? Does he impact decay. Hey Metcalf does he. Impact Tyler Lockett Anyway. But you know he might not even play. I US getting to the studs. This week's fantasy stud muffins offense all right. Where do you begin? How about Lamar Jackson? Oh perfect passer rating thing man. And then he can run it to. You can run it pretty well. That run was incredible with with the Jack Spin. Lamar Lamar Jackson He had six defenders that they showed on that play miss opportunities to tackle. That's only because the other five weren't close enough right otherwise you wouldn't. Otherwise he he could he could. He's the type of player that could get eleven guys. Yes the second most fantasy points Through the first sixteen games to start his career only behind. mahomes Jackson has been Just the League winner type of player Mahomes came back. Went thirty six for fifty eighty for four forty six three including a jumped passed that was unbelievable. The Mo that the Makuhari Down Yeah Moco Hartman is a guy that you can start start every week. But YOU'RE GONNA you're GonNa hit the homes as their yes and you only get what to two passes due to chances. Every game McCall. Hardman reminds me of the drag racer cars. You know the ones that you sit at the end you press the button and they go five million miles an hour. He does looks like he pushes. The button and takes takes off Daniel Jones four touchdowns he's had some rate streaming games. Kyla Murray Jason. There we go look cuyler Murray. I mean you know you would hope that when you face a team like Tampa that is very beatable against the past that he could step up and proved worthy of that he did which is a good sign for future matchups streaming plays confidence and it was nice because he had Christian Kirk back. Who obviously we'll talk about when we have water because he was awesome and it was nice to see Andy Isabella out there as well the second round rookie who has lightning speed? He caught a couple of balls and every time he cut the ball. I was like oh I can get an extra ten twelve yards here because I'm faster than you ever. Seen Patrick. Mahomes and his receivers is helpful. Speed is nice. Yeah Kayla Marie also pays for four thousand passing yards. Five hundred sixty rushing yards before the season was cam cam came out in his rookie year. Threw for four four thousand yards. So we hope to see from Tyler. I believe he's depending on your scoring system like the number five And so he's giving you a great year Dak Prescott last night three touchdowns three ninety seven. He's acute before on the season. Josh Allen ended up well Oh ooh that up actually had a pretty good game pretty good excellent. Look Josh come on. Let's run the ball. That's what we drafted you to do. Please please run the ball. They they got. There was an interesting game. That was his highest passing yards. Also hold on. That's a little low. They lost the Josh. Allen is passing output of sixty six Josh Allen. You've had though I mean we. He's a two hundred yard passer right now. Yeah not running thing for as many yards as he did last season probably because he's got some more weapons and the defense is good but you're basically in a situation where he's probably GonNa get you twenty twenty points a week minimum. He certainly hasn't been hurting you. That's five straight games with two touchdowns every single week so yeah and you know his upcoming schedule. You could keep playing him Miami at least this coming week for. Yeah all right Anybody else who will talk about it quarterback studs got some running backs Derrick Henry hundred and eighty eight yards two touchdowns. He's running back five on the season. Is this what you expected from. Derrick Henry No I God I did. Not and he had a huge breakway Ron I think they clocked him at. He came in over twenty miles an hour on that run. So that just MAG- magnificent beast of a man running twenty miles an hour. He Got Bison in the open plains. It is a business decision as yeah. No no I wanNA live. I mean think about getting hit by a car at twenty miles an hour. Okay okay if a car is going twenty miles an hour you get hit. You're you're on your own since trouble hospital for the problems and ways but it's not as hitting now factor during like. You're actually trying to hit the car. I'M GONNA tackle this car according to ESPN stats and Info. Derrick Henry has scored six touchdowns of sixty yards or more in the the last three seasons. Which is two times as many as any other running back Dalvin Cook Doing Dalvin Cook things? Twenty six for ninety seven and one one another seven for eighty six through the air. He's just a great player. He every play he looks special he is he is awesome and if you were to start art a fantasy season today and do a startup draft he would be in that top tier. I mean you'd be talked me seeing Louis Delvin Cook. Who would you rather have right now when you talk about Ezekiel Elliott or Davin cooking? Throw Saquon into that conversation. Those guys at this point. Yeah it would be McCaffrey. And now I think could be number two. Yeah so good for you and Aaron Jones. Why you say Delvin does Davos things? Aaron Jones at Aaron Jones things which has touched the ball thirteen times but end up with three rushing touchdowns. Yeah little Jamaal Charles asks sometimes. If you will you look at the split blitz. It was basically dead even when it came to snaps touches between earn Jones Jamal Williams but Aaron Jones ended up with rushing touchdowns breaking news. All right this is not gonNA land well for those of you know with Austin Hooper is your tight end. He is getting an MRI on a knee. Injury suffered Sunday expected to miss some time. Mr Or I will tell you how. Much Austin Hooper owners are now going to be tied influx for a little while. That sucks to lose a tight end this late in the game. The waiver wires are bare and he was the number one tight end season. If you you know at this point over the rest of the season if you lose I mean I guess we've got two of them right. Kill you lost right. You got no options out there. Hooper stay safe Kelsey. Yes seriously Christian. McCaffrey great game. Elvin Gordon Thursday night. We know that he had a great game. How about Ronald Jones Ronald Jones? There's some good some bad in this game. Eleven for twenty nine on the grounds not great but he scored an eight for seventy seven on eight targets. That's the bigger Paul his UC coach and let them know he's matured. Look I I mean if you watch the game he he looks awkward catching every single one. bobbling them corralling them. But I don't Care Sodas Leonard Fournette Annette Leonard Fournette. It's not a smooth receiver. But if he's getting five six targets game great for fantasy and Yeah Ronald Jones is is a guy that needs to be in your lineup. Going to have to read. Read this This John Daigle posted this in high school. He had seven catches final. Your USC fourteen catches his rookie season. Seven catches prior to week. Ten eight told her catches on the Air Sunday eight catches so they used also coming and Barbara had some good place in this game too. So we'll say the eight receptions is probably the outlier here moving forward. He is definitely start. -Able but gets the saints next next week inciting exciting as Arizona. If you told me that this was the new standard for Ronald Jones. I would question you as an analyst based on his entire life. You've just saying I agree with you has to be considered an outlier for we get too excited about Robert Jones of like brown jobs every week rb to I'm just pumping the brakes rigs there. Yeah I I will. I will say it will be you know you can start Ronald Jones going forward but this specific week against the saints is going to give you pause. You'll give Gel L.. Mix in the honorable mention here in the Stud Muffins. Thirty for one fourteen. I still I I respect Joe Mixon for how hard he plays while losing. It's not an easy thing to do and when you watch them. They're the worst team in football. And I feel like carried twenty seven for Joe. Mason has the same level full of juices. Carry one so I'll give them credit there and now we are learning that Giovanni Bernard has suffered a sprained knee. Well there you go. So two more carries carries coming. We're got wide receiver stud muffins momentary before we get into that. We WanNA thank thank Harry's for sponsoring today's episode.

Trust me you gotta get the clip got equipment. You got equipped holiday season. I wide receiver studs. What a game for Christian Kirk? Yes for one thirty eight and three on tin targets this is outstanding the rapport between cuyler and Kirk. Is there there. There was a great report. Also with Kirk in the Tampa Bay Secondary Yes. They really built a sad and understanding they. They built a relationship chip but kirk kept him at arm's length yes and ultimately three touchdowns on tin targets. The first game back you could see this was Christian Kirk as the the one on this team and everybody else and in this game. A real breakout performance three touchdowns recipes in this Christian Kirksey wide receiver. Two is enough. He should be in the match. UPS are not take they are not great for Christopher. Got Another matchup against San Francisco by week. The Rams it's just it's it's tough sledding. But I think that Kirk is a low end. Yeah it's awesome breakout but I was going to ask the question. Is that mean you definitely start him next week. I mean last week against San Francisco. He was too for eight. Yeah next week that was at home. Go you know it's it's GonNa be it's hard to start him the and then the bye week after that. I mean it's all about the options that you have on your roster and whether you WanNa pivot or whether you want to believe that he can can build on this the Nice thing about cuyler and you saw it repeatedly in this game is he can escape the pocket which extends the play and you ask the best cornerbacks in football whether they can defend somebody threw a you know when the quarterbacks running around for five six seven seconds you can't if I you know I think Kristie Kirk is for real real. I mean he was one of your mind guys. Andy's obviously going to be a Assad wide receiver but if you're trade deadline hasn't passed. Would you be willing to trade. Hi Chris Kirk knowing the next just three weeks or sell. Yes yeah I was also. I'd be fine doing that. Yeah absolutely like you said San Francisco then the bye week which you're not gonna be able to play and and then and then Ramsey then Ramsey and then Pittsburgh and then you know. It's not gonNA be easy Darius. SLAYTON's laid fourteen targets. Argets what we we we. We were mentioning this guy in passing when we were breaking down the match for the giants the match up was plus against the jets. Yes you want players going against that team and then you had ingram out. Your shepherd out was K. Gold is going to be great which gold was a beast and and it was okay. Yeah you could play slate niece. He's very he's interesting. He hasn't really been a target machine to reception the game type of player. But but ten for one twenty-one into what I love it when excuse me I love it when this happens for young players because it makes you you know. It's not just maybe not just an outlier type of performance to report is building with Daniel Jones opportunities for him in dynasty and moving forward. So there's breakout game plain and simple ten for one. twenty-one into the thought was you can play him but he's got a score on his three catches not as ten catches. He only he had five catches the previous three weeks explosive game. Great Game Daniel Jones was great in this one. And you know Slayton's interesting. We actually played against him. In one of the League's where we share a team preposterous opponent picked up in plates. Leeann doesn't feel good. No Adult Amari Cooper Cooper tyreek Hill Taibbi since returning from the injury wide receiver. Three four twenty seven four three so Levin for one fifty seven and one night there was a part there was a part of this game. Where and you gotta understand tilting? Jason is at Jason that really. It's Kinda like a biohazard. You need to get away from it. It's noble and there's some sort of there's radio-activity the closer you get but you can still get sick from a distance there. There was a part of this game where Jason Saute Ricky will go down and it looked like he may have reentered the same shoulder problems to be fair to Jason Tyreek. Are- kill we had been he was writhing. Yes and this was his. If you don't remember a situation in his shoulder was okay if you go out out there and play and you re injured this you're going to have actual medical problems. That's why he was held off the field for so long he goes down. Starts writhing writhing in agony grabs his shoulder like the same. This illuminate injury came right down on that shoulder that that clavicle. Yes in and the The reactor began to leak for Jason and we were all feeling it and then all of a sudden he runs back on the news the same so that's good news. Amari Cooper super dominant absolutely stellar performance for him. He makes such a difference. Visit A S- keep those targets off the hit that because it reminds me of cooper cut all right Golden Tate Four for ninety five and two on eight targets. Michael Thomas Great Game as well welcome back. Mark Andrews Andrews Heo Mark Andrews had huge game six for fifty three and two on eight targets. Who's nice to see? He's been targeted seven plus times in eight of nine games. He likes to play Cincinnati. What did he do the first time against Cincinnati six for ninety nine in no touchdowns correct okay and then scored twice in this one? Yeah Kyle Rudolph one of the better catches of the year. Two cats was incredibly one hander. Yeah because he never touched it with the other hand and secured it with one hand to his body Kotel midst that size there will be no how big the real. NFL football is. Just just grab it like a baseball. I I was just say I imagine you out there with a right hand and left handed baseball glove. Grabbing that allowed can wear these you can try. I would love to see I've been told. Gloves are okay. I believe the WALRUS would use a couple of those. But Yeah Kyle Rudolph Fourteen and two so touchdowns ONS Aplenty Travis. Kelsey Nice game. Greg Olsen eight for ninety eight on ten targets. Perfect game script in this one. I mean OPPORTU drive right after Dr to Comeback Olson was the go-to player. Somebody you could rely on in the middle of the snow which And then I think you can roll with him next week week against Atlanta and then my goodness if you wanted to see the reactor going wild in the first half of this game O.. J. Howard Oh four. For Forty the seven and a touchdown on seven targets Jason did not melt into Goo. I was very happy about that. Play them started on it. kind of it washed out the David Johnson. Johnson thing. Because we're about to get to the stinkers of the week David Johnson. You probably didn't watch it out for those all David. No it didn't but maybe myself it was. It was nice. I took to risks and one of them paid off and one of them now is risky. One of them did not stinkers of the week presented by odor eaters all right. Let's get to the quarterback stinkers. Let's start with Mitchell. trubisky with makeup Jared Gar Whole Jared Garf- twenty two for forty one for two forty three two picks one fumble no touchdowns. Yuck Mike was Smart to pick Pittsburgh in our weekly office pool on the basis of Jared Garf- being atrocious on the road fifty percent completion percentage sixty six touchdown to interception exception ratio. Six point six yards per attempt. All No mark of the beast before you get mad at me about my comparison. Let's be clear over. The last seventeen games played Mitchell. trubisky has four more touchdowns than Jared Garf- does that because he had six touch. MK No I would say the other seventeen sixteen games matter too. That's a very big indictment on jared Goff and when I started tweeting about the rams the the rams fans were quick to remind me wasn't such as this year it was the back apple last year to this was this was not something that just suddenly came out of the blue. They do not look the same. They do not feel the same fantasy owners. Whether you're Cooper Cup this week Robert Woods most of the season data fine game this game. PPI CPR leagues. For sure. And I will say golf is on pace to throw for over forty six hundred yards he. He's not he's not bad but he's completely a streaming option. He's not a guy yet play. We can make up next week. He's at home but it's Chicago. I'm not playing against Chicago. We saw how he did get Scotto last year. No thank you but the two weeks weeks after that Baltimore in an Era Zona Up. Lame Against Dirt Zona now Baltimore at home a high scoring game. I'll play against Baltimore at home. I think Baltimore's improving improving on their defensive side. Yeah I'm not you know I'm not trying to poop all over Jared Goff in general just talking about the rams in general and really you know any any player in today's NFL's passing game pass stream worthy consideration every single player based on matchups. There's no question that a guy can go out there and have a great game. I'm just kind of disappointed. We don't see this oil machine. I mean hurts. girly owners are hurts. Everybody and this was coming off a bye where usually McVeigh has a history of anytime that he has had extra time to prepare the come out on fire the and while while we can be upset with off drew brees this this one hurt real bad against Atlanta at home coming off the bye. He was my number one quarterback thirty two for forty forty five for two hundred eighty seven yards. And that is the end of the fantasy stat late. No how many touchdowns I was that. The end zero zero touch that was brutal. Man You kept saying don't hurt. This is a perfect game script for him. Lena comes is out. Jumps off to a lead. And you just assume okay it's drew Carey. NFL and it's at home. I mean they had like I feel like four or five drive. Live cameras back. Jared Cook is back. They're ready to rumble. And it just never happened. And they couldn't protect brees. All of a sudden on the Atlanta Falcons who have no pass rush whatsoever were dominating. The awesome offense of line of the saints. Is this just a throw the game in the garbage. I choose to believe that yes. I think it's a game that will save Dan Quinn for a little while. Six six six sacks is the most sacks that breeze his suffered since two thousand thirteen. Yeah it was. It made no sense. If you were gonNA tell me. Remember how close I was to call in this game. Yes you were that Atlanta would win this one and then once I realized it was in New Orleans. I couldn't do it but something just felt like the the Falcons would challenge them. I don't know how it happened like you said I think Alvin Kamara had plenty of Monday pun days in there because people were disappointed in single digit fantasy. Just ridiculous and then Aaron Rodgers back to back weeks now. Seventeen seventeen for twenty nine to thirty three end of sentence so for air rogers though well like the drew brees won't hurt the Aaron Rodgers. Fantasy output put certainly hurt you but he played very well he just happened to have three air air to get route. By three. Aaron Jones rushing touchdown else it two hundred thirty three yards. Nothing to be excited about it was. I'm just talking about the actual play. What but two hundred thirty three yards on seventeen completions compared to two two hundred eighty seven on thirty two completions for brees? Is this the floor for Aaron Rodgers if the running game is working. Yes my concern for Rogers is we spent the whole day talking about these stutz. You know tyreek Hill speed Nicole Hardman you know you saw Christian Kirk speed. Did no disrespect intended for the lazard King or for you know about some disrespect intended for Jimmy Graham but win the majority of these targets. Downfield targets are going to lazard Jimmy. Graham and Patrick Mahomes gets the third of McColl Hartman and tyreek Hill. You do cap your upside for Aaron Rodgers for the big play type situation nations. NBS has been the only one that kind of gives him those plays but it's literally like a shot a game. So that's I I don't understand this and maybe you guys can explain it to me. But how do you not equip Aaron Rodgers in the offseason. And I don't mean with a rookie because I don't think that's the way to go. Rogers is got too many grimaces for rookie. You need to bring in veteran player. Aj Green how is he not going to be a PA- I mean. Put somebody on the team that Rodgers I can go to work with over the next three or four years. I don't yeah I mean I get it. I agree they They need speed. Then you'd veterans speed on the outside. I I think that's what would help. I don't think they need a green specifically because I would go after a player could give you the next three years and isn't d you Win Haw Ghana's shots and it's not worthy of an argument because he's hurt right now so if he does well well then you'll be wrong and if he stays hurt. I'll be wrong. Brian Hoyer is real bad. Eighteen thirty nine three interceptions trash game. Ugly throws him. You were disappointed. Healthy present yeah quickly all right running back stinkers we. We Unbelievable Stanton Thirteen Carey's thirteenth wait. I want everybody out there. That doesn't doesn't know how many yards did say on get on thirteen opportunities to get yards. One he got yard one yard the thirteen he he gained so that means it was a little last. Just a little less than an inch per carry. I have to give a shoutout to F F Today on twitter that posted a picture of a yardstick and said saquon Barkley ran this foreign thirteen carries it is the fewest rushing yards banding non quarterback with ten plus carries since Reggie Bush had negative five yards on eleven carries in week. Nine of two thousand and six. He has twenty nine rushing yards in the last two weeks he is is. There are questions about his health. He did go for an X-ray after the game he was matched up against the New York. Jets guys. Yeah this this was as rough Zeke. Twenty four forty seven. I didn't think he looked good against Minnesota north. He's trying to do too much against the defensive front. Minnesota deserves serves credit but Zeke was consistently cutting back into the defensive line in ways that were peculiar to me and only two catches for Zeke. Are you panicking about the output for Z. He has been. It's weird because right now. He's before this week. He was the running back six on the year. which is that sounds great? But you feel like he's almost been a bust this year the last three games. He's been over one hundred yards and he scored in two of the past before this this week suck but he was. He was good all season. I mean he has three games where he is finished as a top twelve running back on the season last year the year before the year before every single week he would have maybe maybe three games and usually it was like one game through the course of the season where he wasn't a top twelve back but most of this year running back fifteen fourteen ninety before it runs past three weeks before this gaming has Minnesota what were his three finishes. Che's seventeen four and six so okay. He had two top ten finishes in that stretch but look at the whole season. I mean you can't really you say he's getting on the right track. When last week he was seventeen and then this week you is worse? That's not the right track. Yeah I mean. He's not catching as many passes. He's he's not scoring as many touchdowns he certainly being utilized heavily in in most weeks. You'RE GONNA be able to lean on him for you. Know in our be consistent assistant double digit game but it has been a disappointing year for him if you drafted him to be you know a number one got Christian McCaffrey Z.. was taken over Christian. McCaffrey and a Lotta legs. He was taken over Dalvin Cook. He was taken over all those guys. When when the suspension if I was often saying saying through draft season if we knew for sure that he was Not Holding out and was going to be playing. He would have been my number one and right now. Don't get me wrong. It's not like he's been bad he's on pace. For fourteen hundred rushing yards does great. He's very good running back but only three hundred. Forty one receiving leaving yards and touchdowns haven't really been coming so I'm just saying he's been disappointing based on what you hope you wanted a guy who's GonNa come in in here and win a bunch of matchups for each hasn't done that. I think this conversation's very interesting. Coming off the heels of talking about Barclay and Barclays extremely disappointing. You too well. And that's why he's he's also been hurt and may still be hurt so you have kind of a out. Yeah I mean if if Barkley was giving you these games weakened and week out you'd be kind of it. You wouldn't be angry but you'd be like well. That's not what I signed up for. That's all we're saying. Fourteen for multi touchdown games. Zeke have have this year multi touchdown games none zero. So he's not winning. He has never one you a week with a performance. And that you've seen a lot of different things from Cook Just so you know the the last two games the pace for saquon would have two hundred thirty two yards on the season. That's not fair dad. On two hundred sixteen carries so. It's just funny. Yeah speaking of not funny David Johnson listen. You look five care. I apologize to yards one. Catch eight yards. Anna fumble forty five percent snaps a fumble. He got benched he got benched. I his play Kenyan Drake Sixteen touches sixty three percent of snaps. Look much better. Didn't look great. There was a play. We had to rewind and watch the replay because it was it was comical comical. How slow and low effort? It looked David. Johnson gets a handoff. I know he's you know waiting for the office of line to do things but he just he's look bad and you know we keep a my whole rationale for why I thought he was going to have a good game. Was We heard there was going to be a lot of to back sets and there was and there were. They weren't using David Johnson in the passing game. The way that we had hoped I had that head to head matchup with Smith's and my team was great. Add markey's Brown roundabout to Adams Parker. OJ Our Chelsea but my running backs were David. Johnson saquon Barkley. Did you win. I Lost Yeah Yeah you you have to be hands off David Johnson for me. I wasn't willing to play him till he reestablished himself in the offense you that's my policy going forward reestablished then. I'll look your direction if you played them to the last three games. He's been active for you. Wanted to call your eyes out David Montgomery and Devin seven single Terry two disappointing performances. The bears had released. My Davis. The match up was against the thirty second. Best Detroit Lion Run D. He only managed sixty yards. They were up against the team with the worst. Run Defense and a backup quarterback. Yes they did win that they did win. And then Devon Single Terry was is disappointing. Only eleven total touches had seven targets but only three of them for eight yards and Frank Gore continues to get the goal on the so. They have Miami next week though. Yeah I'M GONNA I'M GONNA stick with starting Devon single as well and then Jalen Samuels. Yeah and now. Connor is going to be back. So Samuel don't say that for sure don't say definitively it's already ready being reported. Oh it can be afforded but you thought last week it was reported that he was gonNA walk for a minute. I I'm I'm the source Mike Right reporting James Connor. We'll play on Thursday night okay. Latavius Murray Five for twelve to for seven. There was talk of more of a timeshare. This game certainly was not conducive for any sort of running success. In fact the only reason Alvin Kamara had any success was garbage. Time dump off passes. Yeah you would a he. He belongs completely in the stingers of the week. He was so terrible until the garbage time dump off passes at the end of the game. Yeah but I mean what can you say Chimera Latavius Murray had to go up against an awesome Atlanta Front. Sorry my natural reaction we know some. Here's here's some stinkers that wide out. Get Your Reaction Guys Cooper Cup. What do you do with Cooper Cup goosing on four targets you take depends on the button and you move on? Yeah as supercup you play him at home against Chicago. As hard pinch is a hard. That's a bruise pinch it is. That's one of those. Go skiing out the snake snake bite. That's what we call those back. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah. The thumb goes under the index finger. That's a bad thing on the booty. Well I didn't get him on the Ludi then but this one was on the booty Odell Beckham fine for fifty seven on twelve targets. Here is a pretty good game for aid. They tried to make it happen for Baker. Tried make it happen. Twelve targets is. That's a lot. He got the that early game. Deep Target Look Baker is not a good quarterback this year. He is not a good quarterback. Last year's great great quarterback. We'll find out what the truth is. They developed off. It's of line over the next few years but Odell Beckham has just been bad. I mean it seems to be a disconnect yes sir because he doesn't seem to have the same problem throwing the drivers Landale Landry wide receiver seven this week wide receiver eighteen last week. Landry's averaging eleven targets game definitely feels forced. I think that's part of it. I think part of it is. Let's keep Odell Beckham. Happy by manufacturing targets. That might not be the best thing for offense but simply add to the stat line. That's how it feels doesn't feel like an organic situation has a really difficult. The match up on Thursday against Pittsburgh. There was a pretty big disconnect between Baker and Jarvis last year. I'm not saying like this. Is the narrative next year. Odell Beckham is going to be great. But don't tell that Jarvis had a whole bunch of targets last year and he was pretty close to useless for fantas. What do you do this year because every week every single player that owns Odell Beckham has been starting and I mean this? This week was wide receiver. Thirty five so far. Maybe drop to forty if there's a couple of good wide receivers tonight you know when you're throwing a party and you have to awkwardly. Invite somebody you don't necessarily want it the party kind of hope that they like. Hang out in the other room. That's the hotel Beckham that you're you ask for. What for this year? You can't trade him before the trade deadline. Oh He's worth nothing of what you want for him because you could trade him but you could trade them for dairy sleet or for for somebody that you know is middling in now what you want for the value. So He's at the party he's in the room. Don't look his direction for a victory and just deal with it. That's what I think. What you have to do is just hold on John Because two of the next three weeks you have a match up against the Pittsburgh steelers but then those first two weeks of the fancy playoffs so you get the bengals you get the cardinals and it would be very surprising for him to fail? In those games it will also be very surprising for Odell Beckham owners to be in the playoffs. Oh let's I mean that's putting a bad product in your lineup on a weekly basis all right what about this guy though and for the rest of the wide receivers want you guys to tell me if you're worried or were you adjusted expectations. But Ju Ju just three for forty four six targets. He's got five games outside the top forty. This year has has Cleveland on Thursday in Cincinnati and Cleveland again. Juju played third fiddle in this game. deontay Johnson looked good. James Wash anxiety title game. Yeah I feel like I adjusted my expectations on Juju really early in the season when when when they went to Mason Rudolph and then we saw Devlin. Hodges for for a minute to do became a guy that I think is a fine start on a usual basis and a bad start on certain matchups. This was a week acquire in on that. Top twenty four waterbed. I didn't expect him to be in the top twenty four this week it was a you know you worried about Jalen Ramsey. And how much that's going to do. You look at the schedule coming up CLEVELAND CINCINNATI CLEVELAND ARIZONA. I think Juju is going to be absolutely fine in those matchups. He's still a playmaker. He's game-breaker he's going to be absolutely fine in good matchups all right. Are you worried about Stefan digs three for forty nine six targets no theline maybe needs stealing six games outside the top forty this year worried as in the he won't have anymore big games. No but he's just he's he's alive heirloom uh-huh he is. Yeah that's exactly the boom bust player. Kinda thought he should have caught that slant touchdown they hit him in the hands a tough catch but I expect it come down. I'm I'm recalling what you're talking about. Yes he should have caught you get Denver and a bye week coming up. So that's you know Chris Harris Junior right And then by week. Not not the best for for pigs Calvin Ridley. I'm all about look I would buy Calvin really cheap awesome. Hooper is is fair down for a couple of weeks off of of a bad game for Ridley. I I mean I think really has a fine rest season Sammy. Watkins needs to be on your bench. Yep He's he's been worthy of starting in game one of the season and that's it that's literally it yeah Five thirty nine doesn't look like he's going to do it at this point. Aj Brown disappointment but nine targets. Andy Yeah nine targets from Patrick. mahomes lizard targets targets all right. Aj Brown one catch Mirena flu catches Zach Pascale to catches went went. Yeah Brian Hoyer. The problems Darren Waller Joni Smith. Chris Herndon Hernan just one catch on his welcome back week. I'd be more. I'd look his way moving forward. We're talking about losing Austin Hooper and things like that. If hearns been let go I was not going to play him until he played a game and we saw snap counts and we saw opportunities now apparently he missed some blitz pickups that taken off the field. It's I mean it's risky business. But we're talking tight ends and then Joe Smith for for thirty not a great game name and a game. We're tannahill look good. Darren Waller three for forty The Hawks Strap with Jeff Driscoll is three forty seven on targets gotTA plan. Yeah not a great game. No staffer not to throw it to you stink. You dropped it but I've been the hawk. Strap it was okay. I mean three hundred. Forty seven driscoll was okay. But he'd this him I was just excited Stafford in Game Sammy Watkins. They have so they want I was. I was looking this up so Sammy Watkins Right now going into this week. He's wide receiver twenty nine on a year. Still he's in the twenty s right so I was like what about. Let's take one out since week. Two and on he is wide receiver. Sixty six Sixty six say ahead of Alex. Ericsson MHM thinkers of the week presented by odor eaters odor eaters the best in foot odor. Defense need do they. May Andy Reid. Do you have any comments on Sammy.

So a couple of things I want to get out of the way for those of you thinking that the ffpc is now shut down for the remainder of the you know, the the you know, the the NFL season that's wrong. That's incorrect. We're going to have the world-famous ffpc Playoff Challenge details coming your way. Probably within the next few weeks big change one big change.

Scott Johnson coaches crunchers was on the high-stake slow down is an extended ones like a 45-minute podcast Scott and I got into a lot of stuff and it was a fun fun conversation. So hopefully you check that out rotoviz podcast or anywhere you get podcasts as well. Ladies and gentlemen without further Ado. I want to bring in tonight's first job. Long time and ffpc player who's made multiple appearances on this program tonight. He's here to talk about his brand new Venture with the f f e c and why all of you Dynasty players need to know about the the dynasty Depot you follow on Twitter add credit card King, please welcome back onto the show Dynasty depot.com co-founder Nelson Nelson. Thanks for popping out again this evening. Good evening. And how are you doing? Well, very excited because we're coming up at the end of October and November 1st. And this weekend really is a huge weekend for the dynasty Depot for anybody took missed you a few weeks back on the show. Can you tell everybody what the dynasty Depot is? Sure, Dynasty Depot is an auction site for ffpc dynasty teams. So once we week 16 ends and you want to sell your team, you'll have a form to sell your team on the dynasty Depot. Very exciting. Everybody seems overwhelmed. We're opening up this week for memberships on Monday. And we're just very excited to get this close a lot of work to get to this point Nelson. The dynasty Depot has an exclusive partnership with the ffp. See what does that mean for for the dynasty players on that specific platform to to have this partnership with this auction site. Well, you know when you talk about ffpc you talk about one thing, right you talking about integrity. So when we were able to approach ffpc with this idea about possibly being a secondary market for dynasty teams, when they they love the idea at ffpc and that's where we wanted to be. You know, we wanted to make sure that the the product and fifteens that we were moving, you know spelled out the word integrity and that's what it is with FPC. So it's very exciting for us to be the exclusive retailer of Dynasty teams r f f. And this is one thing I should make clear and I think we touched on this in error last conversation, but I want to highlight this a little bit when you know, sometimes life gets in the way of fantasy football and I think one of the the stigmas that people see when they see like an orchid Dynasty team or Dynasty team up for sale, they just assume it's a dog it's a dog with fleas. It's one that they don't want to own but people give up great teams all dead. Time and a lot of times when people will go on Dynasty Depot to check out some of these teams. There's going to be some good ones on there. In fact ones that might even sell higher than the normal entry fee. Right. Well, we would agree a thousand percent with that because people might win this year have a great team might win this year. It's hard to win two years that arose, you know that so they might offer a team for a profit. There's many reasons people want to get out people might get tired of looking at the same team for five years can't get over the top put it up for sale. The market will determine you know, what these teams are worth when you put a team up on Dynasty Depot, you'll set a reserve on the team and you'll set a buy-it-now price and the market will will tell you what you're getting fat. So it is we we also see it going another way where people love to draft right Eric that's fantasy people. That's what we like to do. So we see people draft Maiden teams in March and April and put them up for sale. You're good drafter, you'll be able to put that team up for sale without ever playing it down. And you know, you might be able to make profits on it off. So we're excited. It's covering, you know, the people that want to get out at the people that want to get in the bargain hunters the bottom line through this thing is when we created this we create this with one word in my life and that's action off-season action. And that's where we are. Yeah, and that will be the The Hub of that no question for all the ffpc dynasty leagues that will be where the action is happening. So takes me through this if somebody gets a membership, they're locked and loaded they go and Dynasty depot.com. Are they just going to get you know presented with every team up for sale along with the reserve and then is there like a set time that the EGR auction ends for each team. How does that work for people that are looking to buy so I'll work backwards here. If a team goes up for sale. You'll have the option to put your team up for auction for 1 a.m. Three or five days. So if you want a quick auction, see what your team's worth boom. Boom boom. You can do a 24-hour auction. Okay. So once eighteen goes up option, it'll hit the page. You'll be able to filter that page by dollar amount by League amount best ball standard best of all superflex and superflex. You'll be able to filter birth what you're doing cuz we're anticipating when January 4th the auctions begin we're anticipating. There's probably going to be between 100 and 200 teams listed really quickly on this month. So the nice thing is when we talk about memberships here, if everybody's familiar with that that PC or fatigues, you gotta get lucky to get that team right because you gotta click on the orphan page ten fifteen times a day and hope you know a teams posted and and not taken already. So what we've established with our mid-tier membership that we're going to basically be giving birth. Play tonight on the show with our promo code you're going every time a new teen post. It will be notified on your phone.

Yeah, and then for anybody who's listening I'm obviously too you'll be able to watch people bid on your team over one day three days or five days to and and and to get that notification that push notification on your phone that's going to be a huge Advantage for anybody who has that membership option to tell I know you talked about this last time Nelson, but tell us a little bit about why the dynasty Depot's leaderboards are going to be important for everybody on there. Well, we we think it's really the hidden Jewel behind the whole thing.

But he's popping on now you follow him on Twitter at J Farrell Elliott the commissioner of the Kentucky fantasy football state championship Barrel Good Friday evening T-man good evening, sir. I finally shook off my phone obligations and got to you bulky and time for Chris and Alan wage. Exactly. And and that's who I want to bring on right now. It's it's time they don't have a wealth of of ffpc experience, but they do have several decades worth of fantasy football experience, and they use that in route to their Ascension to the top of the leaderboard in the football guys Players Championship. Heading into week a please welcome on to the program Chris Andrews and Alan martirosyan guys. Thank you so much for having tonight. Thank you very much for having us so happy to be here. Yeah, good evening. Thanks for having us. It's got to be exciting for you guys to throw this to you, but it's got to be exciting to see your name right up at the top of the leaderboard, you know, essentially halfway through the NFL season right now. Oh, no, absolutely. I mean it's a huge surprise. I mean, yeah, sure. I've done okay in fantasy football, but you see at the top of the list of what ten thousand ten thousand one hundred players at home. Of course, you know, I would rather have it be week 11 instead of week 7 right, but I'll take it. You know, you just got a lot of work. Yeah, you get to keep the momentum going. Yeah, you're certainly putting off. What is that? What is that grand prize in football guys this year that would be a $500,000 Grand price that the driver's just wanted to hear you say it this way. I would be more than okay, it would get we're going to keep going fellows. How many points you have a mask to get you guys to where you are. How many points have you scored in the seven weeks? Let's see here. Roughly a month like more question for you. Cuz I think I jumped on to some of the bulk. He's information or that he wanted to ask you but I have I have one question every time has come on the show. That's what I love best about it. And you know, you guys be interesting. I think the back story of how guys get together and play Fantasy Football and in your case play it successfully is what's most interesting so bulky said you guys don't have a wealth of history and playing in the f f e c. I think you'll be in a lot of seats and a lot of leaves next year is this is this partnership going to continue as a exclusive to all ffpc teams? And can you tell us a little bit about how you got wage? Alan you want to take that one? Yeah. Sure. Yeah. Well Chris and I have known each other for a number of years. We met through our son's basketball teams. So I'm sure glad we got connected that way and then we start talking about connecting on Fantasy last year. I jumped in last minute in ffpc last year and then this year Chris convinced join him and I'm sure glad he did. Absolutely an ally you one you were in the main event last year and you won your individual league, right? Yeah, that's right, which is pretty amazing the last last minute addition to join last year. And it was a good decision too because not only do you have a League Championship on your belt your 141 and now you guys are in first place in the FPC heading into two week eight. I'm just you know kind of Curious George, you know, we have we do have owners come in in their first year first couple of years and they do achieve some success. It's rare to have somebody have played one main event. I wanted and now in the first year of the football guys Players Championship, you guys are leading the whole thing, which is pretty pretty crazy. So I'm just kind of curious how how how has the success been so seamlessly Guys these last couple of years. How did you adapt to you know, sort of a unique starting lineup a unique scoring system and and a lot of guys have been playing this for a lot of years. Why was the transition not that hard for you? I mean for me, it's just it's just doing it for thirty years. I've been playing fantasy football probably for thirty years now, so a lot of lot of ups and downs and painful lessons learned over the years and I think it Jeff Translated into success says just really experienced. That's great guys. You know when I Chris Allen when I looked at the draft there were certain players that were just a mystery to me. I did not know what to do with them. So they just went off my draft board and I noticed that one of those guys you took in the 8th round. I thought that was a little high and earlier in in our league in Kentucky. And then later where I get the pleasure of playing against you guys in the ffpc. I looked at later drafts and I saw him going higher and that player is Christian Kirk now, I'm always trying to Target a player that I think is going to be explosive. It's going to be rising with a bullet so to speak as we get the mid-season Kirk's only 36 overall in receiving 18 catches, but five TDS and I really am like what's going on. Did you guys for see him developing into that kind of player? And what do you what do you see for him with the team after coming through the birth? Yeah, I think I want to say Chris Christian Kirk was one of your pics we were you know, we were drafting together online talking about the draft as we were going and I I think Christian Kirk was one of the guys Chris spotted. He's definitely explosive. I remember last year a lot of ups and downs. So I got to give the credit to cross that one, you know. Well trying to connect so I could get the options. So I would like to have someone actually to connect with the quarterback that we have. And since we've got Carla Marie, let's go ahead and see what's explosive explosive cuz I remember last year Alan had a Christian Kirk on his team on like who the heck is this guy? And he had to do fairly well, so because that you know how well Allen Meisel last year. He was one of the guys wanted to Target if we couldn't get Hopkins am so and thank goodness. It's just even very fortunate because the point but it's look at Chris and Alan martirosyan joining us here on the high-stakes fantasy football. Our this week leaders in the football guys Players Championship and and Chris another guy and this is where I'm sort of going to get into some some conversations. I've had with high-stakes owners talk show Tony policy because a lot of people for the last couple of weeks have said that Pollard should be getting more touches in this offense than he has been getting and is equal Elliott should not be getting as much because Paul has been doing He's been more efficient with his Kerry and I'm kind of curious given the way that this season is going for Dallas Chris. How close does this get to a fifty-fifty split by the end of the year a situation? I don't think any of us expected in the drafting season. No, absolutely and you know, obviously deacons one of the best running backs in the league. But the thing is that what's going on is Dallas is still in the hunt for leading the NFC Institution for the two and five records and the only one place out of first place. So I really don't see them using totally popular so much because Jeeps are going to be able to do very well. They're suck on the hunt for the playoffs and of course, you know, if they aren't in the hunt, then I could I could see them go more than I apologize to save Zeke and his legs, but right now since they're kind of in the middle of it they need they need him to step up. I think that's an excellent evaluation of that. I think that Zeke is going to put that team on his back and carry them as long as far as he can is a real chance for him to step down. Could be the competitor that we all know he is now Christopher youth a guy that's been trying to find a place to compete and competes in a little different way than a lot of other players around them. Another mystery player on my board was Le'Veon Bell drafted in and I stayed with him and I don't really know what to expect but the schedule makers have given us a real Plum this week in Le'Veon Bell returns to play his his New York Jets former teammates Jets giving up 142 yards rushing off in a mop up Le'Veon Bell significant Talent who does not have to carry any team on his back and be part of the very effective machine. What do you mean this weekend? Are you going to start him Flex him or do you do you feel that? He's going to percentage be in your lineup the rest of the way. I was just funny. I was just texting Ellen about that. He wanted to play someone else instead of him. Like I don't know it is a pretty good chance that it really well, but I said got a chance to talk about it. We got a couple of days to discuss well a couple of drinks and it will talk it over but I mean to me with a Clyde edwards-helaire playing great. I don't see Olivia on getting the same amount of Russia's and touches wage the fight Edwards at least during the game, but I do see Belle doing a lot of play-action receiving and doing more on the goal-line such as that's where he's going to get a lot of his subjects and I think with what's happening with the team he's playing he's going to get opportunities because yeah, it's not going to be a blowout. They're popping. He'll have left be on Le'Veon Bell's kind of do his thing and I think he wants to Showcase what he can do country feels pretty slightly by the Jets and he's going to showcase exactly what he can do and locations himself right into the end zone in this game. And that's where I have something we can't log We can't figure out I think I heard this right cuz I'm listening carefully to what you said when when you can't really make a decision quickly. You got to start having drinks and talking about you know, when we can't yeah. So one of the things that I think fantasy owners are trying to figure out is this tight end situation in Denver right? Now, you have no offense coming off the the injury and you know, a lot of more than Whispers out there saying that package is still not fully healthy and Alan this is you know, this is why it's important to you because this is a guy that you own in both your legs and fat and now maybe this could be a committee maybe a split between Albert okwuegbunam and and and Noah Fant so I'm just kind of curious to how concerned you think that that is a realistic possibility. It could be something that happens for the Broncos now dead. Yeah, I mean, I'm a little bit biased towards fan. He first few weeks. He really earned a good place in our hearts. We were the probably the last team to draft tight end in our league is jumping on tight end cuz you get a point and a half perception. We waited and families are I think we were the last ones that take at I-10 and he came out of the gates just crushing it. So I still have, I mean, he's averaging nearly eight targets a game. So to me I still have a lot of confidence in fan just Talent level and and targets even those quarterback situation is not great. Hey guys, I waited on tight into I ended up with fan obviously during your waiting on tight. And you were taking Christian Kirk and young guys that were explosive. I made mistakes taking back-to-back receivers in the seventh and eighth round Jarvis Landry and Julian Edelman. So, you know, we all know the story on Adam and we know the story of Jack Landry and what interests me is that he is on your team. I'd be curious where you guys took him and what you expected. I I didn't want to take him. I felt I would get 15 months 12 to 15 points a game. I'm getting ten. I rarely play in he now taken away from his team is Odell Beckham. We have a number of young players that look explosive plus the tight end and Joker the first round draft pick returns to the line up you guys get a gift if you want to play Jarvis Landry this week you get Thursday. To the writers coming through the coming through town, you know, and I googled cuz I've been curious what the writers are playing. I really admire. I really admire their Joyner defensive back number 29, and and I looked at you know, are they playing a Zone and they playing a matchup zone or are they playing a cover to what exactly are they playing? I put into Google what defense does the Cleveland or does the Las Vegas Raiders play and it came back Las Vegas defense as butter. That's exactly came back on and I said, you know, maybe maybe it's a Landry start. What do you guys think guys? You still looking for the End Zone? He's for Thursday at the monks wide receivers in points. And he does have Mister Joiner on the other side of the ball. Well, it's kind of funny. Cuz right before this call, I were just discussing that Alan was like Hey, I'm thinking Landry over. You know, I think he was yeah, he mentioned like well, who are we going to Thursday? We going to sit everything? There's no we sit belts and like okay, that's interesting. We just might do that. So either way, I mean either way we have a good we have someone who's going to be really well. At least we hope so that's Thursday. It's just you know, he mentioned something. All right, we'll discuss and go from there and it's great that you guys are thought that up and Allen. I know you're the one who kind of gets. What were your what was your thoughts here? So why? Yeah, I mean, I'm not confident in Landry's upside, but I'm confident as him as kind of a safe play, you know, seven catch 70-yard guy and with all the other explosive guys, we've got em, I see him as kind of a safe place. You'll definitely get more targets, but again not confident him blowing up, but just to save play The leaders in the 2020 football guys Players Championship after seven weeks of play are Chris and Alan martirosyan key and they're joining us here tonight on the high-stakes fantasy football. Our guys a couple emails that came in for you and I'm going to lead this one off. I'll let Alan take this one Matt and Macon Georgia writes. Which dolphins are you starting this week with two at Sunder bi Lo making his debut against the Rams. Thank you for the email Matt and Macon Georgia. How does that change Alan with with paga by low in there over Fitzpatrick. Are you you know doing anything different with guys like Gaskin or Parker or just about any of these guys with tagovailoa in there. Yeah, obviously a little bit nervous as a dolphins receiver owner. I've got Parker in another league and definitely don't know what to expect. I would think Gaskin might be safe just because of some dump offs, you know, if two is trying to play it safe and and you know, I can see gas can catch him five six balls. Yep. That would be the safe route. What what do you think Chris? Is that the way you fall in on the the whole Dolphins conversation until we see more talking about lower? Well, I'm hoping to add this pretty well, you know, I'm always you know for the guy who tries to come in as a rookie and he has a lot of hype behind him has an arm. I was looking at some of his videos might be wise me a little bit of Kyler Murray and even if she came in you had a little tough time, he's got some he had some talent to throw to he does have some good players. It's not like he doesn't have anybody, you know, so I think two of them they do pretty well, but I know it's a good sense. I mean a wonderful thing about football is is Any Given Sunday guys who the heck knows but of course we're too old to do some pretty nice things this weekend. I'm you know. Since it is Any Given Sunday guys, you know anything can happen any week what you counted on last week. You may not see this week and and that takes us to my favorite question every week. You know, you are a you are staring down a championship here and you've got ten opportunities to expand or in your case. Keep your territory issue. Number one team that there's always one guy in fantasy football. You may not be in your roster and you may not be in your lineup, but he could be that expected bus boss when you guys are impressive drafters. I'd like each of you to answer this question. I'd like you to give me 1 bus and then I would like you to turn to that player that us lesser Mortals of drafting may have to reserve on this weekend. Someone that no one else might be smart enough to start with you and if you did you would be deeply rewarded they call him asleep or you can Cannot you cannot use any Carolina players, especially one that doubles as a wide receiver running back and wears number 10 and his neighbors came first in sleeper. That's what we need guys. And I need it more than anyone. I mean, all right. Well, I'll do the first one well for the bus, you know, I hate to say it because I'm black and gold fan, but I think my busted the week is going to be chased playful and we have a blue and with the ante Johnson coming back. He's in the lineup and then just loves to throw to him. Usually once Beyond fiance's back in the in Oakley people just kind of goes into the Wayside, you know, I know we had a couple of really great games and I think long-term he will just I think with this game being a tough match up in Baltimore. I think it's going to be tough so capable of my kind of bust for the week and for my Sleeper the guy we were just talking about another former black and gold. I think Le'Veon Bell. This is an opportunity for him to really step it up. And I mean I have on a few of my teams. He's real life hasn't done much here the past couple of weeks because with the jet said last year he was with the debts is a lot to prove against the team now granted you're going to if you're if you're going to prove you're good. You better do it against against them. You can't do it again suggest you mean, I'm sorry, we're starving. Hey, you want to I want to get to yours and just 1 second. But Chris as long as you bring up Chase Claypool. Yeah something that I've been asking a lot of players high-stake players about how do you sort of see that Steelers receiver situation going forward? You know, Juju Smith Schuster is in the last year of his contract that the Steelers have not attended them yet. How do you I mean, do you think that they bring back smith-schuster to pair with John while not pair but to go along with Johnson? Yep. Play pool next year who's the Steelers receiver really to own going forward? No, I think going forward give me the day and I think it's going to be play pool, but I've been with this. I mean, I'm a Steelers fan DieHard. So I've seen him go through many players players that were good and they just took oh and when they let them go really don't do much in other teams, but they're on the Steelers do well, so I would think that they would you know, at least it keep Claypool and obviously not the Johnson the to at least long term but here is just has a knack of drafting really good young wide receivers and I think sometimes though they're going to go the control would just grab somebody else. I don't know if they have that mentality of times Steelers do but they seem to really be able to Draft wide receivers. Well, hopefully does the big for his britches like Antonia Brown did Michelle, so I'm just hoping you know. He's a really good guy. And one thing about Pittsburgh is, you know, they're down to home people they really like if they're fans the fans love them, you know, and the only take the seat and go but you know, if there's something going on and just you know, he's which has been ya kisine living and go but yeah exactly. I I know exactly how you feel a sleeper in a bus from you Allen the sleeper. I'm going to go with Brandon. I you you know, the Deebo Samuel out they got you know, obviously they got kiddo, but they got no other receivers to throw to and Seattle's the worst. I think they're the worst ranking defense in the league. So I use my sleeper. And then the bust I don't know how much of a busted is. I'm going to go back to that Dolphins game. I think the Dolphins are going to win into his first game and I think Jared Goff is the bust Oh boy. Yeah interesting. Okay. Okay. So one other thing here and Chris you kind of already gave your answer on this but I did I just did came across one month email from Steve and Detroit and Alan I'm going to pitch this to you. Hey guys, should I sit Chase Claypool in favor of Marquise Brown this week? Nice work in the football guys contest that is Steve in the way to keep thank you so much for the email Alan. Are you with with Chris and this that this is not going to be a Claypool week. Yeah, I think I think I would go with brown just because of the you know more more limited choices in the Baltimore passing game. I think Brown gets more opportunities than people I know with feral asked the the final question, but I do just as long as we got a minute or two left here Chris. I'll pitch this to you and then Allan Fleet, please let us know your thoughts, Normally when when people have just joined the f f e c or just start playing there. I always want to ask them. You know, what what's the biggest difference? What was the biggest adjustment you had to make from, you know your home needs to your to, you know, competing in the high-stakes space and you guys had a lot of success because you had like thirty plus years of this, but I'm just kind of curious. What was the biggest adjustment that you had to make em in playing in these ffpc leagues that you didn't necessarily have to do in your home links. I think for me it was it's the Labor's the waivers are a place where you could win. I mean if you have a good draft successful draft great. If you don't you can use waivers as a way to obviously need a courtesy better, but I'm always being mindful of who's out there. I'm always looking for speakers to possibly pick up and how much it would have to pay for them. So to me, there's you know the game that you're playing when you draft is a game you play when you took the week and then there's a game that you play on the waiver wire and for me playing that waiver wire is a constant game to try to figure out which guys do you get at good prices early because once they have a hot game their prices go down we've experienced that a couple of times the most try to get ahead of the game. Say two or three games ahead try to get sleepers now, so I don't have to pay so much later. So, you know, I have a good solid, you know bencic we do now and we're continually looking for guys, you know to kind of Stack our our bench. I always liked that that is a brilliant way to look at it Eric. Did you did you say yes. Did you hear these guys are in first place, and they're continually looking for a way to improve their team, and I love that. I I gotta tell you, you know, you guys have a smooth and and and give and take care of each other and obviously a lot of respect for each other and it is it works. It's taking you a long way, and I wish you continued success. I think you're going to happen. Yeah, absolutely. I can't thank you enough for for popping on the show this week and you know, if if you do end up cashing that $500,000 grand prize at the end of the season you best believe we'll have you back on January 4th for a recap on on how that all went out. I know you guys know you have more work cut out for you and and it's going to be several more weeks before we can get there, but you're in the driver's seat now. Congratulations on that success in life so much for joining us this week, and we will talk to you again soon guys. Enjoy week 8 Thank you very much very much. Appreciate the time. Thank you so much that it's Chris on that is Alan martirosyan the leaders in the 2020 football guys Players Championship as we head into a gate Farrell's crazy, you know you think about this but for the ffpc for the football guys for for Kentucky fantasy football state championship as well. There's only four more weeks of regular season play so you get out for weeks to to sort of make. Hay while the sun shines and try to get your team into the playoffs. I don't know about you but I am I am desperate and and making every move like it's my last and I follow am I exhausted by Fab budget in one of my Kentucky leagues on Wednesday night. So that that is I got $0 left in that League will see if it's enough, but I'm holding it all man. Well, you know you you've got to get through you got to get through week eleven broke bulky. That's your goal. That's exactly what you want to do. So you're doing it right. You're just doing it a little earlier often the most everyone would do it. I you know, all of these team-mates I got to say it again all these teammates that come in, you know, you can tell they're having fun. You can tell they're great guys and I've enjoyed all of them. These guys have something special going on. I think that they're I think they're going to be looking Beyond this year you asking about the future of the Pittsburgh Steelers and I thought that was a very long answer that they came back with but you know, I think as far as we look at a future these guys are going to be trouble when I show up as Caesars and twenty Twenty-One thousand. I don't want to see these guys at my table. Yeah. Yeah, or at least not in your league for sure, you know drafting on a different table would would definitely be much more birth. Vishal we got some some emails here. I want to get to tonight Farrell. So without further Ado Rob, let's hear it got a question for I gave her tonight's guest sent them a tweet on Twitter email to show at hitex Fantasy Football posted to the chat room during the broadcast hash tag your tweets win a chess game or just smack in the head that high-stakes Fantasy Football hfff on Twitter page. First email comes from the great state of Maryland bill is in Essex, Maryland, and he writes dear feral and bulky. I'm more than a little concerned that the defenses are going to slow down the offense in that steelers-ravens game and I'm thinking of starting Joe burrow over big band for that exact reason. What do you guys think? That is Bill & Essex Maryland feral. How do you fall in on this Borough or big been dead? The week eight Iron Man from Essex, Maryland is ride on it, Joe burrow. It comes into this game five games funky five games with three hundred plus yards. This guy is a real quarterback for the nominal Steel in the pocket. It's like he's got eyes in the back of his head now the Titans You know, there's a lot of talk about the success that the Titans have had this year. But you know, I think it's all very very funny. When you start looking at their pass defense 15 passing TDS against just walk ins for quarterbacks have hit home for over two hundred yards just to the wide receiver up to their yards for the game, but just to the White House and there are the names of it's just life the names that are etched in stone at the hall of fame is guys like cousins men's shoe lock Josh Allen in a in a chaser game, you know, they played with us and burger who had a difficult second half a good first a good first half and and Watson has his lid up to Titans pretty good Boro will continue to do that this weekend coming soon as a pass-rush, even if they did it wouldn't bother this kid with the Titans six sacks and seven games you go over to mr. Roethlisberger and what he's looking at they got thirteen sacks. By the Ravens of the last two games they have just coming home to Maryland is Yannick ngakoue, Maryland. Terrapin comes home to place a local team 21st and quarterback scoring. I got stats. You know, look the road is Kryptonite for Big Bend Baltimore's at home coming off a bye. He did well in the Tennessee game, they may need to get out of there and keep their record. This is where it comes to an end in Baltimore and it's not a good day for Roethlisberger. Boro will burrow will torch the Titans. Who knows if he'll win. They got a good off in Tennessee Boro Boro have a significant fasika. Yeah. I'm with you on that one that game the total and that's 51 and Titans 6 and 1/2 Point favorites you'd like to think if Joe Burrows arm is going to be crucial in keeping Cincinnati in that game if they're able to make it a game in the fourth quarter barrel. Just just Dynasty question here for you. Who is the better career wage? Joe burrow are Justin Herbert when you consider the the the quarterbacks that got drafted highest in the and I'll tell you what let's grow into. It's Uncle by low in there. If if you were playing Dynasty or even just from an NFL standpoint who has the best career of those three rookie quarterbacks too soon to tell burle and Herbert have the early start and it puts them ahead of 220 would be a different kind of quarterback. So different fantasy kind of quarterback, you have to score points with his legs and you know, everyone wants to point to Russell Wilson, but the comparisons aren't that easy to make right now off Borough as you look forward in the future. He's got the less. He's got less controversy less expectations, perhaps Cincinnati is much much different environment than Los Angeles. Even if it is the second Los Angeles team and he's got a coaching staff that package is secure an offensive-minded. So if I had to make a decision today, it's a tough one that I'm I'm All learning up with Beryl. Yeah. I think I'm with you right now. Although I reserve the right to change my mind as we always both do on this show as we get new information. Let's go to Nick in New London, Connecticut. He writes. Is there something to the Revenge game narrative this week when Levi on both places old jeans or would I be better served playing Justin Jackson over him instead. Thanks so much. That is Nick in New London Connecticut feral. We talked a little bit with Chris and Alan about Le'Veon Bell this week. We obviously got their thoughts. How about you is Belle in for a big game this weekend or is it still going to be the Edwardsville airshow against the Jets? Oddly enough the comparison is is very appropriate here cuz they're both splitting time Jackson splitting time with Kelly. Everyone knows that I'm a big Kelly blueberg one knows I had to bite my tongue when these guys, uh, I don and Chris were fixing Claypool as the bus for the week. But but I nevertheless nevertheless. They're in first place to them. I'd argue wage it down, you know Jackson and Kelly were there they're going to eventually get into a game. It's going to be more of a Kelly game than than a Jackson game, but I think you know what they're running into what the charges are running into in Denver this week, you know Denver is giving up to rushing TDS. They're allowing 17 fantasy Palm Beach to Two running backs collectively and you would expect Kelly and Jackson to split that and you know, hey, look they played Henry they played against Connor played against what Tampa had to offer and Rocio and fernet. So real this is a real run-stopping defense in Denver. So I am giving I'll go back Le'Veon Bell and say that in a game where they they get up early Kansas City wants to see that game away. They also want to work on some things. They also want to make Le'Veon Bell comfortable and TJ coaching room. They're talking about the fact that they want to you know, that they want to give him a chance to make a statement. They'll get him at least a touchdown and yet I don't know if you can count on that between Jackson and actually it's an easy decision living on bill. So you're a player agent. I mean you you deal with this kind of stuff the Revenge game, you know that this is a real pig. Right when when players go back here old team. They want to show them that they did indeed make a mistake and this isn't something that the media or or pundits like us make up that this is a real thing for these players right off it is and it's it's miscast in a Revenge game. Even if a player left on good terms. It's it's meant to come back into, you know have the have the kind of game that that people would expect you to have they see your maturation as a player they see. Well, you know, we let you go and you're coming back here. There's also players that compete against each other within games and if you look at it, you know, you'll see certain games. You have two running backs. It went to the same college or competed perhaps in one of the power 5 conferences and one got drafted in front of the other one or one might have got drafted in one day and get drafted at all. Always wanting to show each other up. It's very very competitive people at that position. So you can look for those kinds of things. There are not always as obvious as living on Bill returns to his list employer to start this season. So, yeah that those kind of those type of things are always present right now, you take anyone It goes up against the Tennessee Titans the opposing running back. Once they have a big big game and nullify some of the attention that hunter or that. Couple more minutes here for a sparrow. This is from Ron in Akron appropriately any T. Y Hilton worth starting anymore. I played Cole Beasley last week on your guests a month and was very pleased. Should I start him over Hilton in week 8 to around thank you so much for the email. By the way. I did get an email from from Barney Newkirk saying after you know, he said Cole Beasley was going to be a Thursday last week and they obviously had the double-digit catches 420 plus yards or whatever it was. He made sure to remind me that that he made that call on our show last week and it helped out run which is good. That's what we're trying to do. He's so feral and we Kate you gotta play Beasley over Hilton again, right? Oh easy. It was a stupid call because fantasy players just don't quite understand Beasley, you know football is is all about how you match up you you saw you saw the Green Bay Packers come out and put in a great first quarter against Tampa Bay and then Tampa made some changes they were rushing wage before they went to 5, they ran up some unique defensive fronts that Rogers could not hadn't seen and Founders were getting in the in the backfield and they also this is a team Tampa Bay that struggled against Chicago but made the right and make the right adjustments to work. against against Green Bay. So my point is that Beasley will have his moments having great success. There were no adjustments made the middle was open. They threw the ball to him about fourteen times. That's with Allina should have done with some of their receivers last night Beasley situation though. This year is is beyond impressive, you know, he is on he's on track to have plus 80 catches. He found the end zone two times. Everybody can talk about how Buffalo does a score the ball and the Red Zone and Alan Alan takes the touches away from the running backs and receivers, but you know because he's got two more touchdowns than a lot of wide receivers goes Landers is 0 + 2y Hilton certainly is a zero. We keep getting these T Y Hilton questions and it's an easy choice for Beasley. But gee why I hope I hope for a miracle. I hope that he's actually acquired in a trade this is this a wonderful wide receiver with the last time you've been to Hindi bulky. Well, I suppose not in Kentucky since I flew this year. So probably the last time I was in Indianapolis was driving down to the Louisville back in 2019. There you go. So it's been a while in the downtown has been reserved and it's Fountain squares. We're all the nightlife and the activity is T. Y Hilton is a fountain of Sorrow. It's a it's just a sadness as to what's happened to you is a career, you know, the email comes in we're talking about T Y Hilton I would rather start gobbling Beckham Robinson. Steven Crowder and all those guys aren't going to play I would rather hope for a miracle healing for one of those players and play T Y Hilton and because I think I've got a better chance of getting an injured player another miracle and having recovered in Philip Rivers learning how to get one of his wounded ducks to a guy that is really a sign football player in his losing the season there when you were talking about the way the coverage is being rolled on Cole Beasley reminded me of something and I wanted to ask you this and I don't know if you have any insight into this but you know, the Houston Texans did bracket they didn't double coverage. They weren't rolling a safety over at all on Davante Adams who just torched them on Sunday. He was constantly locked up in man-to-man coverage Vernon Hargreaves Eric Murray Phillip Gaines. None of them could do anything by themselves dead. Why do you think the Texans didn't change anything? Why why do you think they just left, you know, whichever corner it was on an island with one of the best receivers in pro football. And even after he was destroying him. They didn't change that. You got to see it. You got to act quick you got to have plan B and you got to be comfortable and confident in your players being able to make a change in a game plan. And I don't know how may things are working in Houston, but but but I don't know if any of them are the ones the last time you watched Moneyball Moneyball. I watched probably about a week and half ago actually Philip Seymour Hoffman, it's great. Great role as our how is the manager you couldn't even you couldn't even imagine that was Philip Seymour Hoffman playing the role and and he tells this is Brad Pitt's he plays the Billy Bink Brett. He says, you know being says, what are you trying to what are you trying to do here? And he says I'm trying to merge this team where I can explain it when I'm on the job search for next year and I think right answer to your question. These guys are you know, these guys are playing out the string. That's what they got and we'll probably see a significant Talent Green throughout the year with players being first traded as wage is the deadline and then heading to the bench less and less time on the field. I think you're old are good friend. Ron Meyer one of his faith. Players that I always remember him drafted in Kentucky Randy, might be a guy that's right. Yeah. Yeah. I know for sure. I actually own rental, in a couple of months so far. I've been pleasantly surprised. We'll see I'd like to see that depth chart get broke up a little bit and and you know, maybe see some some of those receivers that are buried there in different places to see what they can do with new location finally mail tonight for us Farrell. It's from Chuck in Dallas. He writes hey hsf our team. I just know I'm going to pick the wrong guy here. So I leave it up to you guys have a name or Mike just sticky and my football guys line up this week. Happy Halloween that is Chuck in Dallas. If we look at the schedule here, Evan engram is actually going to be on Monday Night Football hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mike just sick. He is going to be catching balls into a tagovailoa at home against the Rams this week Ferrell. Do you have a good feeling on this? I don't I'm leaning towards just sick. But I don't really know you know, depends on how big a game where you are. You see is had one game. We all know when it was weak to he absolutely blew up. Of course. I did not starting that started Gronkowski that week the score 2-0. I started I started to see the next week and he posted a zero and Gronkowski had a 20-point game. Well rewarded by that 1.5 per kaha H and I just don't know which Titan is going to catch the ball, you know, but, you know, if you're watching RedZone so often you see a tight in in the number in the end of the spectrum of numbers catching the ball and you find out it's a big kid from Notre Dame. It doesn't look anything like this succeeding the number eighty. Oh, I forget his name, maybe Sternberg sometimes guess a ball. It's it's hard to say that what you should expect in this game that typically typically Young quarterback. Little lean on it on a tight end but you know, this Titan is also lined up in the slot minute. And so the answer would get sticky is I just don't know now you you know bulky working some with some real football questions here tonight. Not the fantasy football isn't very very real but you you you know, we've been talking about some schemes and some mindsets of players and but there's something so we returned the Monday Night Football with these New York football Giants and you know, Philly recently beat them in a primetime game and Thursday. We're you know, Robbie Fletcher my good friend Ravi Fancher. It does rkf FC podcast weekly pointed out something to me. He says, you know the third down last possession when the ball went off every named and fingertips. It's not like Ingram sold out for the ball. It's not like he tried to make the most amazing job. Catch of the game and if you did if you had made that catch you would you would have won the game for his team and instill tremendous Trust. In that quarterback Ingress. 26 balls this year. I think you'll catch more than likely I'm going to say play Ingram. I'm going to say be very careful about how you use Ingram in the future wage because we haven't seen a breakthrough game for him yet. And and I don't know if there is I don't know if there's one forthcoming in the Giants. So this is not the greatest combination of tight ends, but Ingram has the best chance to to score you the most points and everybody's tired of waiting for Ingram wage. I guess a key retired a goose eggs. I would rather wait and take what might be another goose egg. Yeah, I mean and you and you mentioned that past two that would have been Evan engram 7th catch of the night, too. So, you know, he's getting targeted and this was already after certainly Shepherd came back into this page up. So something to be said for that. I think you're right about the gambling thing. And you know, it's just a how big of a risk. Do you want to take when it comes down to that and I'm getting from the email from the email or here Chuck. He has picked wrong more often than he has picked right between those two years, so he wasn't picking just the Kia lot always good to talk to you dude.

Sit down and get ready to consume in abundance of fantasy football knowledge from russ tucker and joe dolan me now on the fantasy. Feast eaten podcast. Let's eat baby. Is the bears piece in podcast. Presented by fantasy. Points dot com. Use the code beast. It is the show that so nice. We do it twice. You already know all about that. You already listening episode one joe. F g underscore goal. And i'm ross. At ross tucker nfl. I don't even feel like messing around. I want to dive right into it. Because i want to start budget. You get two year in episode two. Let's start with the giants and seahawks joe of key people on their toes. Usually it's about a couple of minutes where we dive into it. Nope giants seahawks. Wanna get your thoughts on this game. Look like they're going to have daniel jones this week so without daniel jones it colton koi is going to be the starting quarterback and now i say appears because as we're talking right now. The giants are practicing. Joe judge has said that Clayton thorson is going to get some first team reps as well. That's not good news for the new york giants. Their offense was not very good. When mccoy came in you know he came in cold. He's a professional quarterback. I think with a week to prepare as the starting quarterback colt mccoy production out of this. But you have. Evan ingram. I go over one hundred yards in this game and most of it came daniel jones unfortunately at one catch for negative one yard with With mccoy in their quarterback colt mccoy did gravitate a little bit towards golden tate out of the slot. Maybe that's somebody who who will produce this week. If cole mccoy has to play quarterback Darius slayton was a ghost last week. I'm not sure he's going to be somebody who's going to have a game this week Very slim did not catch pass last week. By the way. The one guy who i think could keep rolling with further new york. Giants is wayne goldman. And i've been calling them for weeks. They'd always an rb to his numbers. Suggest he's like a top seven or eight at position that number say he's an rb one. I'm just a little bit concern. This entire giant offense takes a major hit without daniel jones. I say what you want about daniel jones. They started to get in a little. Bit of a groove. I'm not really sure that Now with seattle's defense by the way starting to hit its stride a little bit they get carlos dunlap they trade for him. Jamal adams is back. This is not the same match than it was early in the year when they didn't have either of those guys what about for the. What about the. It's the same with the seahawks. You play your guys. Every week The thing about the backfield though is interesting. There is a point in that game on monday night which was really hard game to watch. Because frankly i don't think seattle played all that want to either where i was wondering if chris carson was was dealing with some injuries because carlos hyde got a bunch of carries. But it's clear who the running back is is chris. Carson had eight carries for forty one yards philidelphia. Carlos side had fifteen twenty two. I would think. Chris carson is going to get a little bit more work here Going forward than than than carlos i carlos i could probably use them as a low end lex chris carson back on the rb two. Maybe even rb one radar. Because i thought he looked pretty good. They clearly limited his snaps in that game. Bill de came metcalf roasted the eagles last week. The howie rose was going to be paying for that. Pick for a long time my pay pay pay with papers job. Pay a pay for it with his job but became has a tough match-up this week against james bradberry. I don't anticipate he's going to go for ten for one seventy seven the way he did last week even though he cooked up darius slay in that game but it is a tougher. Matchup tyler lockett. I think this is probably a little bit of a better matchup for him against the new york giants than it is for gay metcalfe but the seahawks are team. You're just playing all those guys plan. Russell wilson anyway. Whether or not it's a good matchup or not predict for decay mac app. You just have to play every week next up. It's the rams and cardinals losses. The total on this game is forty eight and a half over drag kings. I don't have a great you'll for this. One is our draftkings light game. So i wanted to get your thoughts on the fantasy. Guys were both teams. Were season law. Dfs overdraft the rams driving nuts roth. That's why grunted there. Because jared goff pisses me off for fantasy. It is just night and day with this guy whether you pressure him. He's gonna terrible if you do not pressure him he is going to carve you up and last week. He got pressure and he looked terrible. I just don't understand how this happens. I really don't understand how. Cooper kupp caught like eight passes on the opening drive two weeks ago. And then he comes out and then he catches two passes for forty one yards. Jared goff two interceptions no touchdowns one hundred ninety eight yards against san francisco. The question is can arizona pressure him. The way that san francisco did and i would have doubts about that. I really would I would think But the one thing. I can say about. The rams is at least they've started to get the ball. Robert woods his hands more. You play him each and every week this is. I mean it's just frustrating. With what on with jared goff so i think robert was gruber cup. You just have to play them. But i think the story everybody is going to be talking about is did they. Finally cede control the backfield cam akers. And maybe i mean darrell. Henderson had ten carries for nineteen yards cam. Akers had nine carries for eighty four yards and a touchdown cam akers. Has it been producing with a much higher success. Rate the last number of weeks. And darrell henderson. Malcolm brown is just kind of part of the rotation here. If i'm the rams. I'm giving more snaps in that. Backfield cam akers. If i'm playing back here as a flex it is going to be cam akers against the arizona cardinals but that passing game for the ramp is so damn frustrating. Because jared gob jekyll jecklin high. If he gets pressured early he is going to be terrible in the game if he gets if he's clean early he's gonna carve you up cardinals. I wonder how much collar murray's shoulders affected him. He did not look good against new england. Not pressing the ball down the field ranches five times for thirty one yards. I mean if you survive last week in a must win situation with kyla. Who's been carrying your team. I mean congratulations. I'm still of the mind that I'm waiting for. This breakout game from christian kirk and i think keiler injury is a problem with that because now you would anticipate jalen ramsey who's been selectively shadowing war in recent weeks and he was in early. Weeks is going to match up on the andre hopkins here so you would hope. This is a big game for christian kirk but with kyle murray dinged up. They have been giving the ball to kenyan drake and he has been coming through. He scores two touchdowns and oh a bonus. We thought early in the season. We were drafting kenyan. Drake in the second round us going to catch passes all year. We caught three this past week after being kind of held down in that department for a lot of the season but i would anticipate that cardinals are going to continue to give the ball. Kenyan drake kyla. Murray dinged up. Not telling you kyla murray. I'm not telling you you sit deondraye hopkins. But the matchup isn't great for those guys in christian kirk. I know it's been quiet. And i think the injury might have something to do with that but i wouldn't anticipate he has the better match up to receivers here. Let's get to new england. And the chargers and i guess the question there for the chargers who is doing. I'm gonna try take away. My guess is it's keenan allen. Maybe a big austin ekeler day. I pictured to these from the patriots. Get over the top big austin ekeler day. I'm calling yeah. I completely rossi comes back. He plays seventy three percent of the snaps and he gets sixteen targets. And even though justin herbert's the kind of quarterback wants to push the ball down the field. Austin ekeler is a great receiver sixteen targets in his first game back. That's a good sign for austin ekeler. I think i think you're right. I think bill ballot check will say hey won't let him catch those short asses. We just want to prevent teen now and from going over the top. My question is the stefan gilmore. Matchup keenan allen. A bunch does he take out mike williams. I'm still not thinking. It's a great matchup for mike williamson the problem i have here. You know he. He had of the white coverage last week Stefan gilmore when. He's outside match up to mike williams but three guys who got double digit targets from justin herbert last week three of them did by the way. Echo had sixteen targets but hunter henry had ten and keenan allen. Had ten those three guys who have to be in your lineup. Right now and i understand. New england's typically been tougher matchup. I don. You can't bench justin. Herbert guy just puts up numbers each and every week yet. I'm with you. What about the patriots. When they're on offense. I was really disappointed by josh allen. Played last week against this charger defense. I thought he was going to have a big day. And cam newton at this point. I mean i mean nine. Eighteen for eighty four yards two picks couldn't for the ball he ran the ball took a cheap shot at the end of the game. I if you think it was a cheap shot by zeta simmons. I hate this offense. A shell was active. But he didn't get any touches it's damien harrison james white show in the backfield. But here's the thing with white. It's five carries for eighteen yards any scores twice so he comes through for fantasy. The problem is he has one target. And you only catches for a negative one yards. He caught it for law. So what are we doing here. With new england Against the charger. Defense cam is a low end stream her you just hope. He runs the ball a well. Jakobi meyers five catches for fifty. Two yards he can be back in your lineup as a wide receiver three i still think he's camps. Preferred guy keep an eye on the status of julian edelman. He might come off of vr. But i think you have to flex plays in the backfield damien harrison. James white cam is a low end streaming viable quarterback and i think you have jakobi meyers as a wide receiver. Three here. but it's just a really bad offense and it's it's hard to watch each because cam is still capable of having those big blow up games but at but you're also risking a terrible terrible terrible outing from him each and every week. What about the eagles. And the packers eagles. I know you wrote about this week. Joe it's really sad to watch carson. Wentz is broken and there are a tough would say about them. Fantasy wise back off the ira now so that might cut into gutter. I mean here don. The eagles jeffrey loria is one of the best owners in professional sports. He has got to get some answers here. Because first and foremost you can read my my. My art is free for everybody up a fantasy points dot com. I mostly i think. Eagles need to move on from howie roseman. Who built this old decrepit organization that seems to have no collaborative nece after after collaboration was everything that led to their super bowl championship just three years ago. But the jalen hurts thing illustrates everything here and. I'm not trying to absolve anybody of blame here. Doug peterson carson wentz. You know everybody's like well if you think the play callings initiative the roster buildings initiative you're absolving carson wentz of a terrible season. You're not you're just trying to contextualized. And i thought. Louis riddick and brian greasy on the monday night football broadcast the other night did a wonderful job contextualising everything they were pointing out when carson wentz was missing things badly they're also pointing out where the roster isn't helping him in the playcalling isn't helping him. I don't think that's that's not absolving him of blame. It's just contextualising. It and the jalen hurts situation it better than anything. jalen arts. oh he got more first team reps. This week we're gonna we're gonna play. we're gonna bench carson wentz. Here's jalen hurts is to snaps carson. Wentz plays on first and ten thick. It was hand off the miles sanders or boston. Scott for one yard. They put jalen hurts on second nine immediately. False start jalen hurts completes a pass for six yards and then you pull them out and ask carson wentz to clean up the third more. How does that make any sense whatsoever. How does that put either of those two guys or hurts in a position to succeed. It doesn't if you're gonna play to give them a series if you're not if you're gonna put him on second and i don't put them at all it's it does not make sense to me and like and if this is the usage peterson has has sucked out for jalen hurts that it's clear to me. He wasn't on board with this traffic so far. Let's bring it back to fantasy. It's so he goes. Fandom is going great what do people need to know about fantasy. Eagles are a mess. Sorry russ sorry russ. They need to get the ball to miles sanders more. I don't know if doug peterson. We'll do that but they need to do it. I know he's dropped passes but They need to run the football. More zach ertz coming back. I don't know if the dow's god has been basically the only pass catcher doing anything worth a damn here disaster. It's her him. Probably given how the eagles have gone. I like aside from all sanders. I would play got her. I would like this week on but aside from those two guys. I kinda wanted to support the whole thing. What about the packers gets an eagle veteran. Pretty good last couple of week. Yeah it was. It was good this past week And i think that's another thing that frustrates eagle fans like. You know they have these great performances when the offense isn't any good and when the offense the defense doesn't i mean darius slay got cooked by metcalf so you but he's gonna get cooked by davante adams in this game They did a really nice job on the ground. The eagles against aside from the sixteen yard touchdown run against carson at high. They did a nice job. But you're playing aaron jones. Jim schwartz has always struggled against aaron rodgers. I would anticipate that continues this week. Just play your packers play. 'em play them all. I think the eagles are are dead in the water. And i think it's just going to get worse from here on out the next game on the slate. Joe is going to be the broncos and the chiefs and the broncos will have nfo quarterbacks at quarterback it depends on your evaluation of drew. Lock up. but i would say like. I saw people being like last week. Don't blame kendall hit. Nobody's blaming him. He was putting an impossible situation last week. And i i mean it just goes to show you how hard it is playing. Nfl quarterback but when it comes to denver keep an eye on the status phillip lindsay. in the backfield. I don't like. I mean this back does number good right now for fantasy anyway. But you would think. Melvin gordon can have a little bit more work in this. Game noah fant ease alot anti-dam one. Jerry jeudy tim patrick or wide receiver threes. You would think drew lock is going to have to throw the ball here. But i mean this is just a bad match up and again i mentioned it on the last podcast. You kind of want to avoid bad teams at this point. You're rolling the dice. Every time you play a denver bronco. It hasn't been very pretty for denver. Is there really anything. Talk about as it relates to the chiefs just the backfield. They don't run the football and we thought lady on bell was gonna come in here and you know he can take some work but but edwards helaire. They don't run the ball. And they daryl williams too so they have a three man rotation in the backfield. Nobody's really producing. All i mean i think bell is a bench guy layers a flex but the passing game. I mean mahomes tyreek hill sammy. Watkins got back. maybe he's your guy meco hartman wide open for a ninety yard touchdown. last week. It was not a good throw by mahomes. Hardman probably still could and should have caught it. So you're taking your gamble with the secondary chief wide receivers but understand each and every week. One of those guys could blow up a monday afternoon. Football washington football team at the pittsburgh steelers washington with eleven days. Rest steelers will have like four adept point. Yeah and here's the deal again. Let's talk about the backfield with washington. You know you're playing terry mclaren pittsburgh's a tough up. But you know you're playing harry mclaren but let's talk about that washington backfield. Antonio gibson went absolutely nuclear on thanksgiving. You have to play antonio gibson you have to but when you're talking about washington a pittsburgh this is going to be a long. It's going to be more than the touchdown. Barring something bizarre happening this afternoon to the pittsburgh steelers going to be a touchdown you anticipate the. Jv mckissic is going to be the guy that plays a few more snaps because they trust him on. Pass pro so jd. Mckissic in that backfield is a flex worthy option with washington. Heavy underdogs antonio gibson is a star. You can't sit him but just keep in mind. Jd mckissic might play more snaps than you would like to see this week if you have antonio gibson your lineup okay. I don't know what we can say about. Pittsburgh's is they haven't played the before you other than keep an eye on for when connor can come off the cova right and he tested positive so he might not be able to play although ingram dobbins for baltimore. I guess are able to play that game kicking off in a couple hours here. I guess they're able to play. I don't know. Keep an eye on conner status again. I don't want to throw out some significant takes your on pittsburgh when they haven't even played their week twelve game yet right and now we do have money game or two teams. We have seen buffalo bills. Who were kind of running the ball better. And their defense played better against the forty niners. Do we have a player who is kind of a nice catalyst for baltimore For buffalo rather. Who might be a little bit underrated. And i'm wondering if that's john brown. They had to put them on. I r. he's been banged up all year but album. These numbers for josh allen. When john brown plays versus when he doesn't when john brown has played in he josh allen averages twenty seven point three fantasy points per game if extrapolated to the full season. That would be second among all quarterbacks behind only cuyler murray in games. That brown has missed. Alan average is seventeen. Point seven fantasy points per game. Extrapolated to the full season would be twenty first among quarterbacks. So he's been re. I mean barely replacement level without john brown small sample size because he's only three games barely replacement level without him and he has been a fantasy superstar with him and san francisco as you saw last week. Got after jared gop pressured him. Josh allen got dinged up last week wonder if this might be a little bit of a tougher match. The people think and josh allen. Not a guy that. I'm like recommending. You sit not a guy. I'm really excited to bench. However just keep that in mind that his numbers have been far worse without john brown in the lineup than with him in the lineup. So you wonder if they might lean a little bit more on that run game which was pretty good with devon singles. Airing zack moss. Okay what about the niners against the bills defense. That appears to be playing better. Yeah and they might get matt milano back the linebacker. This week they They designate to return which means they activated his practice window so he could play. This week might not play but that run defense has not been very good according to football outsiders db away. It's bottom eleven. Run defense in the nfl. They've given up thirteen fantasy points per game to running back. So i would anticipate with nick mullins playing poorly last week. That the forty niners are gonna come out. They're going to run the ball. They're gonna run it with gerald. Excuse me with rain moster. jeff wilson. Both of whom fumbled last week by the way but when he mostly plays they give him the football he is firmly on the rb two radar and deebo samuel You would think trivia white might match up to him but he moves all around. It's hard for trae white to match up to him. He produces when he is out there. I would have him in your lineup. Also keep an eye on the status of brandon euch who is Who was on the code list. Maybe they'll pull him off this week. So the forty niners again. Not one of those teams. That's very exciting for fantasy. But deebo samuel raheem or give them a lot. More juice in that department than we've seen in recent weeks or tuesday night game i will be called in for westwood one looking forward to it. It's the cowboys in the ravens. There's really not much about the ravens until you actually see how. Rg three plays. It appears they'll have dobbins an ingram mac for that or even though they're not gonna play in the game that starts two hours from now and yeah i think mark andrews will be out the mar. Jacks will be out. I believe so. Maybe just talk cowboys unless you have no idea who's going to be in the lineup for the baltimore ravens. We just don't and ross up trying to guess two weeks ahead of time. I mean it's it's it's a futile exercise But for the cowboys again. It's a bad match up. After andy dalton came back in and he started giving that offense some life the cowboys awful against the football team. On thanksgiving ezekiel elliott. Had a terrible game yet. Another fumble amari. Cooper got it done now. That's a guy that i'm willing to play each and every week. With andy dalton. A quarterback cd lamb is like a wide receiver. Three a michael gallup. I mean he's had a terrible season at. He's like low end wide receiver. Three after zeke had his best game of the year he comes out loses yet. Another fumble against the football team has i. Don't i can't remember the last time as ego. Elliott had a worse fantasy game than he had against washington. But it's not a good match up against baltimore. Zeke elliott's and rb two at this point i e whether or not. It's already three lamar jackson. I don't know who's going to be there when you call that game. Ross it's not a good match up for the dallas cowboys. Amari cooper is really the only guy feel great about starting you good match up everybody listening and fantasy points dot com where you can go use the code feast did they have like twenty guys like joe that are totally obsessed sickos that have so much content it is ridiculous fantasy points dot com use the code feast also remember.

Slash fantasy footballers the websites the fantasy football dot com all right quick question for today's episode. Which by the way we have a got some news that we're GONNA talk about. We've got a game. We're GONNA play this or that with average draft position some players going in similar places and who you would take right now. Well here's a quick question comes in from instagram. Trent wants to know what team has the best receiving core in the NFL. What's your opinion? Okay so I know before the show we were talking. What does this mean does this? Is he wanting to know who has the best group of wide receivers or is this what? He said the receiving corps. Yeah and I. It's it's it's fair to include both tight ends and wide and I would say either way the Tampa Bay buccaneers apply. I realized that there third wide receiver is who knows. But when you've got Miller matters could be Scotty Miller there like three sets of truth is right now who are going to enter your mentions. Just burn you to the ground. Because they're confident it's their guy. Well look talking about the Justin Justin Awesome Truth. There's won't come after me because they know I am. I am one of them superstar also Dynasty Championship. Starting player fellow truth. There's all go hang out with like all the Aberdares. Truth is out there Is that your crowd? Christopher Michael Truth all those no no all joking. Aside it's Dante's had is truth. Godwin and it's Mike Evans. Which are great but now you've you've got OJ okay perennial bust also really good weapon to have on the field and he might be the second tight end behind the best so as a failure of autologous you know in as of right now came and there you've got you know who's the best tight in group in the league. It's it's gotTA BE TAMPA Bay right with those three in those two wide receivers. Baltimore's got a better tight group but that's all right. Do EAGLES THE EAGLES THERE? You go there in that mix but I would throw the buccaneers out as the best overall wide receiving corps which is great news for O'brady Golfer that was. Did you see that I see them things? Yes you saw him. I saw his underpants. Well that's true. Split his pants but he Stick to show from. His shot was incredible. The best part was the timing insulted. Charles Barkley of when I posted the shot because for company slack and our producer. Albor than was just like man it will. He's good everything like this is ridiculous and then three seconds later is the picture of him taking up his ball with with split pants so it was. It was poetic. Are Tight Pants Mike? Those were were were were. I think it's cheeks or a breathing. Now Yeah I think it's The Dallas cowboys are right. So and that in that comes from the Amari Cooper. Say whatever you want about him. He's one hundred million dollar man in you. Do Michael Gallup. I know we all like him. Yes the ascension and then Cd LAMB drafting The next the heir apparent the eighty eight legacy in Dallas those three at wide receiver in that offense the opportunities that they'll have to shine cast my vote for them. Yeah and don't know Mike Guy. Yeah Blake's are when you're going to involve the tight end then you just upgraded my friend. I have to be completely silent about. Blake Darwin or else. The foot clan will be injured by this. He can't have all three of US talking about. It's like everywhere and I would throw out. I mean those are two solid picks. But I'M GONNA go the wide receiver core that has a wide receiver. Who has the second most yards of all time and he continues to play and he continues to be great. I am talking about Larry Fitzgerald in the zone cardinals who they were already they were solid with. Larry Fits and Christian Kirk and then they who's the third downs behind him. They've rat to hydraulics from last year. And Isabela we can figure it out and they said no we did. We have we figured out because our number. Three's now Christian Kirk because Deandre Hopkins. Who is a top five wide receiver in the NFL right now? Who certainly by the end of his career will be the top ten in yardage when he retires. So I'm going with Arizona cardinals and I mean shoutout to the postman. Who Always Delivers Dan? Yeah you have to say it more than that. People don't know him by the PLO. Kevin Costner I think some of our listeners know by the postman but no Dan Arnold is prob. I'm going to probably not a household name. At this point I thought about Arizona. I mean I went through team by team looking at options and I had kind of focused in on the wide receivers but now Dan. Arnold always delivers your package will be there on time. That's right. Let's talk some news. News and notes from around the League just to clarify people thought. Maybe I meant Tustin. I meant literally your your Amazon box. We'll show up on the off season. He needs to implement the income that he's receiving. Yes this Seattle seahawks have signed running back Carlos Hyde alright to a one year contract. He's recovering from surgery. We found out a torn labrum. An so high joins the running back room. They had Chris Carson Rod Penny and now Carlos Hyde after a successful season of of getting the ball handed to them over and over and over again in Houston Haydn's up in Seattle. Which means he will not end up in Philadelphia correct. I made an interesting dynasty trade and I know you know. I don't always bring these up but I know people enjoy hearing happens in our leagues and there were different differing opinions so I'd trade a Mile Sanders. This is pre signing pre-signing of Carlos site. Yeah I traded Mile Sanders in dynasty. Which I've noticed that people have kind of a wide view. Some people assume he's going to be the next Christian. Exact after exempts going to be the best so I traded him for remote deontay Johnson a first and a second round draft pick. Here's my goodness and I put the poll up on twitter and I said great. Abcd it's like eighty five percent air. Be Right with the hall like Your Reaction. Your reaction Jason a lot but then at least fifteen percent of people thought it was the worst rate that I've ever made him those the Sandra Miles Sanders. Proving that in life at least fifteen percent of people hate you no matter what you do. Yeah and but part of the thought with Mile Centers is look. I have an opportunity. This person really wanted Carlos Hyde could end up in Philadelphia. He didn't Now he was one of the bigger threats because he fits the mold of the Jordan. Howard could get a lot of volume now. Devante Freeman is still. One of the rumored names with Freeman is another bit of news today. He's he says he's willing to uh willing to sit out. The Season Aka retire. Yeah but yeah. I know his yards per attempt went from like at four point. Five down to three point six last year and that he hasn't been healthy since two thousand sixteen this man of better agent because it look when you are An elder running back and he's twenty eight. Yeah I mean at this point right now. Twenty seven is where you're not you're not hitting the wall from a production point in fantasy football but from a real life getting a big contract. What teams are like? Why why would I I in a three year contract to a guy who's twenty seven when I could just draft a cheap replacement option? Who is going to be able to do the same thing? And and it's worth noting that the seahawks wanted Freeman. They preferred Freeman but Freeman would not take that contract. That's when they went and signed their third hope to be ready week. One running back I. He'll be ready. Yes ready. And it's interesting for Seattle. I mean this is a real solid insurance policy. The the notes out of Seattle were still Chris. Carson is we fully intend that Chris Carson will be the starter of the seahawks. Which is I mean. That's great news at that. That's already out there. So if your if there's somehow a dip in Chris Carson's ADP like right now. You're playing basketball. I would be probably buying the dip even the Chris. Carson is a scary draft. Pick right now because you're not sure he's GonNa be fully healthy but the team is saying he's still the Guy Carlos side is just going to be there in case both Rashad Penny who is expected to go onto the populist and Chris Carson if if if he's not ready to begin the season then it'll be Carlos high more than likely in that deal. I know it was kind of brought up as a four million dollar deal. That Freeman passed on from what I understand. Now it is not a four million dollar deal. That's the mapping value of the deal. It's more like one and a half with incentives. You talked to Mike. About Carlos Hyde being somebody that if he landed in Philadelphia greatly concerned you about Mile Sanders. Yes doesn't concern you as much because of the context that you understand in Seattle right now right in regards to the Chris Carson Valley. Yes that is correct okay The Eagles are reportedly still trying to sign a veteran. Running back hides off the board could be. The Shawn. Mccoy could be devante Freeman. I think famous healers should be much. More scared of Freeman than McCoy. Mccoy is toast. I mean you saw last year. He had every opportunity to be the starter and he was inactive. Oftentimes he he. He doesn't have anything left whereas Freeman while I think he's on the downtrend of his career. That would be more concerning honestly I would. I would personally be more concerned about Freeman than I would. Carlos because he's a good quality pass catcher and that's where sanders fantasy vote. If he starts encroaching on that where Carlos I would not have. I would be a little bit more concerned. Yeah in that situation. You would actually have three backs. Catch the ball there in Philly. Yes I mean you'd be smart by Philadelphia Boston. Scott Devante Freeman and you'd have Mile Sanders. Which means you would have disappearing weeks for Mile Sanders most likely which would be unfortunate. Okay and then I guess the jets signed Joe Flacco Brooks felt like that should be super bowl. Mvp thing flat. Thank you Jason Big Flacco fan there. judge I mean. Who isn't strong strongpoint? Play do it all right. We're GONNA play this or that we're gonNA choose between two players same position. Same average draft position as of right now and debate discuss who we would take in that situation. So it's kind of fun we're GONNA kick it off with what it lasts from the blast from the past call veteran running backs on new teams and that is talking about David Johnson and Todd Gurley and the judge dug up an old audio clip because we had a great debate on which of these guys as the RB one back in two thousand sixteen o Simpler Times. I mean we even talked about these guys on show about you. Know the competition between news the best running back in football so I. I haven't even listen to this. Let's let's listen to bow. There's a question out there that says who should I draft this year fantasy football between Todd Gurley and David Johnson and I would say David Johnson. I hope that's not a homer in me. But why would you say David Johnson? I think you definitely should take me to a very player but I feel like with me. I'm able to do On multiple phases of the game Obviously running the ball catching the ball and being utilized so many different factors facet of the game In that way getting is points So in so many different ways well we gotta tell you. We had David Johnson on our show a few weeks ago and he said he should be the first pick and down a little blast off so good good days. The debate used to be. Who's going to be the running back one right? The debates changed the debate. Now who's going to be the one draft in round late three four? Yeah so right now. David Johnson sits at fifteen in our consensus rankings. Girly sits at nineteen for me. It's David Johnson. The variables in play are lower for DJ in Houston. I know the volume will be there. I know the pass catching will be there what he does with it. It won't be what he did with it. When those interviews took place in two thousand sixteen but you know we saw last year very wash Carlos Hyde do enough damage to be relevant for fantasy purposes. David Johnson's better than last year's Carlos Hyde. All the Hopkins targets are gone and girly just has too many question marks for me. I don't know how often how much they'll use them. As carries of gone down three straight years knee his own offense coordinator doesn't know what's going on with it. That's my vote. I would go David Johnson. I am on the Todd. Gurley side and and here's why I think that when I watch film last year the Office of line was obviously terrible for the rams but todd. Gurley did not look washed to me. He looked like the same guy that we saw years prior with Jeff Fisher and the rams were terrible offensive line. They couldn't do anything because he was getting tackled for loss so often that you know that was part of it but when I watch David. Johnson has a runner. Last year. I was He looked so much slower than he used to He's still great as a pass catcher but I. I don't worry as much about this knee issue. That has not taken todd. Gurley field that much. They paid him a one year contract. They're going to run them into the ground. You've got a head coach here in Dan Quinn. Who's on the hot seat? He's got to win and Ito. Smith is not going to be winning it for you. The other backups. There are the most uninspiring backups. The I am. I am not afraid of in Atlanta. And you have the most vacant at targets in the League for Atlanta. Though Todd Gurley will be involved in the passing if you look at just the carries right Devante Freeman. Who's not the thought of as a workhorse? Had a higher per game rushing? Total talk girly did last year. Tom girlies total opportunities. This year are going up not down way up. I think and I think the passing work will matter because there are three offensive weapons in Atlanta. I I don't I don't look at Hayden hearst as some great option to me. It's Julio Jones Todd Gurley and Calvin Ridley I think I think girly will be super involved passes the physical hundred percent. Yes that is one hundred percent based on him playing football early. It's a bit of a debate. It's it is and and Atlanta. I mean like gauge kind of showed up. I think that he's a quality player. I think you're downplaying. Hayden hurts a little bit too much as well. That's fine but Hayden hearst isn't gonNA come in and take over Austin Hooper's role to the entire. He's not going to come in and come in my every single. One of those teams have a vast amount of vacated targets. Yes so it will be interesting. It's funny four years removed from this discussion when we had them both on the show and they talked about you know that this time they were you know one or two in the league. It's interesting that they find themselves in pretty identical situations right coming into teams with lots of vacated targets kind of wore out their welcome on both of their respective franchises. Both had salary cap numbers that neither of those teams wanted to carry anymore based on the production levels. We did talk about girlie. The girly situation may be being one. That just worked for both teams worked for the rams. Getting rid of the contract worked for girly finding himself in a high volume situation. I just have more confidence in David. Johnson's health than I do girlies early still only twenty five. You know he's your. He's not old as neat twenty five and that's what I will say it's funny you bring up the contract because what are these players much larger contracts than the other. Yeah no I I David. Johnson's still a double digit millionaire right. Now here's what I will definitely been on the David Johnson site is that Bill O'Brien we'll have a need to prove that he was right in taking on that contract and trading deandre Hopkins. I think both guys are going to get work. That's why I'm siding with the one that I think looked better on the field last year. Who's also three years younger. I just WANNA be clear. How old do you believe Sony? Machel's Niyaz seventy dollars because he has his twenty-five as well all I'm GonNa Take Dj of those tar you okay. Let's go cooper versus Cooper here. We'll recoup Amari Cooper or Cooper Cup hooman right now they are back to back in our consensus rankings and that might not matter to me in an ADP situation whereas that close. Because it's going to be a little bit about what I want on my team. Now some stats about Cooper Cup. That I thought were pretty interesting I A very similar situation to what Juju Smith Schuster has seen in terms of success outside of the Slot Scher which has been not much by way of Performance against man and zone coverage outside of the slot Cup. He ended up Never finished above the twelfth percentile and success rate in man vs man or press coverage at any point in his career hasn't been able to play outside. We saw at the end of the season. Two tight end sets knocking coupons opportunities down we've debated we've talked about it a lot on the show. Amari Cooper has the disappearing acts from time to time. My vote is Mark Cooper. I would I think Cooper got has a great opportunity but I think Amari Cooper is more. There's less risk of something strange happening. The way it did Cooper up at the end of the year cuper is going to be out there. That's my vote and you know I think both of these guys you can make an argument for them finishing as a top five wide receiver being fantastic. Both these guys. You can make an argument that they carry a lot of risk. What what we saw at the end of the season with both guys last year. I am on record as saying that. I believe Amari Cooper his downturn at the end of last season was due to injury was due to being out there. As more of a decoy. And if you look at the beginning of the year he was consistent. I believe Mark Cooper is going to have a phenomenal year. I'm in on both guys to a degree. I I like both. This is an indictment against cooper cop but You know it's it's more of a support on Amari Cooper site. I recently moved Cooper Cup down in my projections. I went back through just thinking through all the all of what happened at the end of last year. In one of the only double digit touchdown and football I like he is the way that McVeigh uses him out of the slot is absolute perfection but that Dole risk that they do go to these the too wide receiver sets and the the two tight end sets. I mean it's it's troubling. I so I've I've moved Cooper Cup down which regrettably makes me choose Amari Cooper in this situation Cooper Cup. I flipped Cooper Cop and Robin. We take a picture of this moment. Picture of you didn't even know we needed to kick it over you. Might I just assumed everybody out here. Would no I will never take Amari Cooper in any world? Wow Yeah I flip flopped Cooper Cup in Robert Woods in my rankings in that has pushed cooper down to being a lower end wide receiver to can. I just get you to say I love Mario Cooper now. I will try every time to try it. Could I get you to say I would draft Mark Cooper over Cooper Cup because I would boom? I didn't need to me all right before we get into the next. Adp decision here want to thank our sponsors member of friends at Shady race? Oh I do the independent sunglasses company. That does not overcharge.

S. dot com slash footballers all right. Let's do some late round quarterback eighty P decisions here. We've got a two pack of them. Let's start with big Ben Rothlisberger or kirk cousins LE. They're being similarly drafted right now And I don't know if it changes the pick but you know if you're looking at one is late round quarterback in redraft league or you're looking at one is a second quarterback in like a to qb super flex league. GimMe your answer for both of those we know the narratives. Big Ben. Coming back from injury. Captain Kirk very efficient loses. Stefan digs I think I think because of the digs lost regards this question. My Captain Kirk might be under rated and undervalued you so you you feel like he can continue to succeed at the level that he has been I think he may have just as much success without the fundings and That's not saying that that is league winning success because of the way. This offense runs bright. But I don't I don't think it makes sense to devalue him just because of that weapon being lost. I think what they added with Jefferson. You know having a sharp having both of those tight ends that are capable and just how efficient that kirk cousins can be you know. He's Calvin Delvin cook catches the ball from Kirk cousins. And then does a lot with it so that being said. I'll probably go big. I want the ups I want. I want some potential ceiling and and I think that's the that's the strategy here. That's important for the Clinton understand is when you're taking that shot at that. You know that late round quarterback there's two things you're looking for. You're you're hoping that you find a guy who is consistent and is just a great option for fancy the whole year and the other thing is you're looking for upside right last year when drafting late round Lamar Jackson when you drafted him because you knew if he could stay healthy is rushing up is tremendous big. Ben You know is two seasons away from a five thousand yard pace and you worry not not a pace of five thousand yards. Completing five thousand yards was on pace then he completed it right. I'm a huge believer in Juju Smith. Schuster steen gain PACE FOODS. Five thousand yards. And then he did it. I'm a big believer in Juju Smith Schuster. We've had those debates recently anti. I know you're a big believer in the Auntie Johnson. It doesn't matter they're both there for big bid right. It's not about who's better. Who's going to have a better fantasy season when it comes to Big Ben? He now has not Antonio Brown but he has a better option in second year. Deontay Johnson. Then he had coming into last year and I still think Eric Brown is a really great tool of weapon around the goal line for Big Ben. Big Upside is tremendous. This is a team that while their defense is great their offense has been phenomenal with Big Ben over the last several years especially since they made the offensive coordinator switch. Couple years back. So I'm I'm all in a big Ben. He's one of my favorite. It's funny because to me when I look at these two ranked much higher than I like or myself. I've got Big Ben at quarterback eleven and Kirk cousins at quarterback twenty. So this. This isn't close to me. I don't I don't want kirk cousins right. I do want Big Ben and we just you know not that it means he cannot perform. We still have yet to experience the Big Ben. Without a be outcome. The all the anticipation coming into the year last year was what will big Ben be right? It was really selfish of Big Ben. Oh to miss the entire season we had a lot riding on discussion. That he completely subverted injure it in the garbage. Yeah by the way injury notes on Ben for those of you out there. Following along He underwent the major surgery on the elbow that recovery supposed to take a year and Total Matthew Betz. Who DOES THE INJURY RIGHT? Apps for our ultimate draft get says he expects Ben to continue to progress through the summer continue to ramp up volume and intensity he says. It's too early to predict Big Ben. We'll be able to hold up throughout the season because we don't have a lot of data regarding recovery of this specific injury in quarterbacks which we haven't seen a lot of right. This was the Tommy John Surgery for a quarterback so there is more interest to big bend. But when you draft a guy late what are you looking for you? I want to bring it up. I'm looking at the schedule. I'm looking at the opening schedule. And it's a little bit dicey for both of them. I like the steelers open up already here. The JUJU excuses now. No no no the schedule. I'm comparing these two guys who. Who Do. I want to take late round because if I'm taking them in a single quarterback league that he's playing for me week one and I'm hoping that he's playing for me week too but Big Ben. Opens on the road against the giants. That's great that's great. Then he's at home against the broncos not so great middle of the Yeah. I mean th the Broncos they were you didn't WanNa play against them at the beginning of the year that the second half things kind of but they're not necessarily defense that I'm choosing to pick on with my late round quarterback meanwhile remember Chris Harris Junior one of the best right. The best parts of the Denver. Broncos defense is a charger. Sure that it that is an excellent point to remember and then Pugh he's charge. Wait a minute. He's a charge. Well that's the thing now from here on out. He's a charge and then I wasn't sure I was going to do it. Oh I've be happy one hundred percent the only I said he's a charge. And then okay. So let's say if you like. Big Ben is the broncos. Then it's then he gets the Texans the following week as great at home or on the road at home. Okay and then he's against the titans so it has been the home big Ben Narrative in years bash and I'm not sure I'm as excited about him on the road in week. One against the giants as you might be so and then he runs into the titans. Where you'll happens are good deep. Maybe you have enough data at that point to go yeah. I'm rolling with Big Ben. Then you're looking at kirk cousins. He opens at home against the packers. That's fine but then I mean well I guess I should say Kirk was rate was not great against them last year for fantasy purposes then colts. Then titans that's the the opening scheduled for Minnesota? So that makes it a very easy. Pick to go to Big Ben. All right. Yeah it'll be Pew Pew people. He's a charges all right. Sam darnold Teddy Bridgewater isolate neither. Is this a three four quarterback league? I LOOK. I know the answer. Be Honest. It's a worthy answer. Are you take our? Were you willing to take either? One of these guys in one quarterback knows you're okay so let's talk to quarterback consensus twenty five twenty seven to talk about because Teddy Bridgewater has a brand new team. And some weapons in new collegiate head coach. That gets everyone riled up about you know new play calls and things like that but I and so I guess that's my answer because of the weapons. Dj More Curtis Samuel Robbie Anderson and Darnold can lose me a week. Teddy Bridgewater is probably not gonNA like competitively. Some he might score me nine points ten points but he's not going to be negative. Four darnold can have those weeks thus far in his career so bridgewater feel slightly safer. If I'm in a league that forces me to start one of these guys if I was a general manager of an NFL franchise. I would much rather have Sam darnold than Teddy Bridgewater. I think the ceiling is higher for Sam Darnold but in fantasy. We've gotta take the position that they're in and Sam Darnold while his office of line is better and he's coming into your three and he should. He should be able to take a step forward. It's going to be difficult for him to take a step forward with the weapons he has. He Lost Robbie Anderson. Teddy Bridgewater gained Robbie Anderson and I don't think Rashad Perryman Jamison crowder dink dunks. They don't get me excited for fantasy whereas Teddy Bridgewater. Dj More is electric. Curtis Curtis Samuel is lightning on the outside and then you add Ravi Amazon which Eletricity Christian. Mccaffrey is just full of wattage. So I agree with you. The weapons other reasons Teddy Bridgewater. The power has never gone out in Carolina. That is probably not true. Both of them probably not accurate. So you're going. Yes Mike I see that I have bridgewater one spot behind darnold but I feel like this is a slam dunk. I would rather take teddy bridgewater and the upside of the surrounding cast for Teddy. Bridgewater is so perfect for what he does have between Christian McCaffrey. Dj More Teddy Bridgewater. Is I know you were the dismissing? But he's at least interesting to me. I'm not GONNA draft him. I'm not I'm not that interested but halfway through the season Teddy Bridgewater could be a very viable streaming option who you might blame affliction hero if DJ takes a seventy five yard screen to the house. Teddy Bridgewater gets those points and three takes a seventy five yard screen. Pass the house not if those throws behind the last a pitch but there are ways that teddy bridgewater can succeed even without his. You know his making anything happened. Yeah Yeah I'm just you know. He's he's the next level of the old Alex Smith Jokes. Like if you need someone to pick your kids up Teddy B.'s. Got You covered. He's not GonNa let you down. That's true he'll be there on time very punctual. Sam Darnold keep away from all Sam tar all. Can you think of a quarterback you would rely on last to pick you up from the airport than Sam Darnold? He's very young so less reliable. And the Mono irrespon- a problem guy. I love shoe but he ain't showing up Menchu's see I think you're wrong. I think the men's shoe good uncle that like me. I feel like shoe puts on the rock persona but when it comes down to it you wake up your lawns already. Moat meant you handled it. He got up early. Yeah Jordan. It is I could see that being the case. I just don't believe it all right. I like this one. We're all fathers. We have to teach our kids. We have multiple children each and they all have to share less. Sorry about running backs. Who now have to share Is Nothing fancy owners enjoy? These are sixth around average draft position running backs Damian Williams and Kansas City. Marlin MAC in Indianapolis Both of them you when you draft. You do it with clenched teeth. Yes and a ton of fear going through your body. Did you say clinched cheeks that to that as well. I did not say that but that that is accurate if you draft away. I draft very cliched hard to clinch your cheeks without clenching her teeth. I think he was talking about a difference. Said difficult to pull that off. I might share just like an inch just to test it. So they continue. Father yes okay. We're Marlin Mac Damian Williams so much hype around the two rookies near Clyde Edwards air. Jonathan Taylor the offensive line situation is obviously wonderful. In Indianapolis Damian Williams is always seemingly a beneficiary. Not The cause of his own success at times. Where do you go I mean? Are you trying to get to me? You look at this situation and Damian Williams is somebody that okay. Maybe you get elite talent and elite production for a handful of weeks. Do you get that from Mac from the beginning now so it is my belief that both of these players when you're drafting them in redraft league this year are essentially handcuffs. And if they're a hand now I don't I don't like drafting handcuffs. I like handcuffs going into the playoffs but not in the draft season. If I'm looking at these guys as an injury to the starter is where I get their value. Then it's Damien Williams to me because there isn't really that third guy I'm scared of. He has shown success in this offense. The offense is better in Kansas City. So I think Damien Williams for me would be the pick simply because I look at these guys as handcuffs. Now if you're needing to play one of these two guys that has to be Marla magic. Don't think you should look at either of these guys handcuffs. Because they're not going to be that to begin the year either of them. I don't believe they will be involved enough to be someone. I WANNA start in fantasy. I'm not saying they're not getting any use and they're going to be usurped by their rookie counterparts and so their only value will come as handcuff. I'm saying that's when they're a starter for me. I I just don't think you're going to be starting Damian Williams or Marla MAC happily and fantasy. They'RE GONNA be on my bench and when they become valuable is win. An injury to you could be right we are. We do have the model we've seen Jordan Howard. Be ignored in fantasy drafts last year in Mile Sanders. Second round rookie right. Who is all hyped up and drafted before him and all of a sudden here comes Marlin Mac Jordan. Howard here comes Damian Williams Jordan and the team. Trust them so that. That's still a possibility. I think I would go Damian. Williams I think I would go Damian Williams the but the line is better in Indianapolis and MAC is. Yeah is the better player for me. It just feels like Damian Williams is more likely to be the starter for sure week one. I mean that's a probability of neither of that these players having the starting job. But it feels like Damian Williams. More likely to be the guy he's the we can't clone to. Meanwhile Marla Mac I if Jonathan Taylor comes shows out during whatever training camp that they have a eight. Yeah this is. This is rough. I don't I'm going with Amy Williams. Go Day Nine. Heinz beyond the field in third grade On third down and they're even if he has he's the starter. He's not going to have the pass catching work that Williams would have through. Do you think it's Mac. Jason Are you on the Damien Williams side. I'm on the Damian Williams side because of what I view them as for my roster. I don't view these guys as guys. I want to start however if you had to start both guys sixteen games. That's where that's where I would say Marlon Max going to be more involved through the course of the season. I I agree with that. You know better off. It's of line better off You know I think I think quite Edwards Allaire will be a workhorse is really are going six ram. Would you be drafting these? Because we've talked about them as values several times over the off season and I think they're six round pick but they they could still mean the six right now but I would much rather go after a wide receiver. Something else the. The answer is if you're choosing. Adp This or that but in the six round it's that yeah that the I'm not taking yet either exactly all right. Let me throw one more out. Here late ran wide receivers. Anthony Miller From Chicago and or Preston Williams from Miami It will quite easily slide. Anthony Miller in this. I feel like you had the hesitation between the two names because we are both just baffled by how much Jason seems to love. Preston William Correct. Who is coming off it? Easily undrafted free agent hoop look. He was having a very solid year but then he tore his ACL Yeah I mean Preston Williams may not even be ready for week one. I can remember the Kamari kinds of the world having opportunities when there was no one else. I'm not saying Preston Williams can't become it. Is there anybody else I mean? Yeah well I there will be. If he's not available we won. I mean there will be other players out there on the field. I'm just going with ten players in honor of Preston Williams. Yeah I I was impressed with Miller. Having the stretch games that he had last year the the talent of Miller I like more than Williams Miller. Sorry confusing yeah. He is and he's GonNa both of them. Are going to need consistent quarterback play to do anything I mean. The reality is a anti Miller's of a very good player who's had stretches where he's been great he's dealt with a lot of injury his shoulder problems I think he's had to shoulder surgeries now You know whether that crops up again. I know that's one of the more common injuries to come again. But not as common when you have the surgery he had not heard. Yeah not presently injured right So I I actually like both these guys late round wide receivers who could take a step forward. I and and you guys are baffled by my Preston Williams love is I believe. He looked good on the field last year. And when I look at how the depth chart for the dolphins is I think he's got the clearest path to the wide receiver to they had they had so many draft picks that they could have gone out and spent on a really good wide receiver option over and over every round there on the border. Are they gonNA take this really great wide receiver out there? And they didn't over and over. I think the dolphins believe in what they have. Impressive Williams. Yes he's coming off the ACL But I I lean Preston. Williams out of these two Allen hearns is their cats percentage for pressing Williams last year. I did not what is it. Let's say shot. Take a gas sixty targets. Is it between fifty and sixty? Yes not quite waiting. Uta thought we five. Yeah also it's terrible. It's fifty three percent even worse thirty to sixty targets but anthony remember Josh about sixty one percent remember. Jarrai's that's a member of the Rosen. Yes he he was. Forget the Rosa all right. Let's do some mailbag before we Close mailbag back all my gosh. Yeah we need. The public apology has to happen now because he never apologized. Jason's the majority owner of this apology. But we all have equity I. I'm apologizing for. We got more feedback than when Jason contended that Ireland was part of the United Kingdom. I like the people out there to know that we are better informed. Now Oh my gosh. Ireland seceded from the United Kingdom in nineteen twenty to work. The land is not greg. If I'm wrong people more than island is part of the UK yes As far as my research has shown I apologize for nothing. Also if you're taking my geographic like look I think people were more disappointed myself an Andy. What actually yeah got some comments about like you know Mike. Mike's Studious man. At times and they were expecting him to correct Jason and in the correction came and I just kind of went. I just said Oh it is should never have done that. I've always been confused that they just have multiple names over there like it starts with the base of England and then they have another name like Great Britain. Okay now we included more few more. Now we go you. United Kingdom now include a few more just confusing for stupid Americans? Yeah because the technical name is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. So I a lot of word. I would contend northern. What Northern Ireland Baby? I'm sticking. Look I apologize. There was a lot of our nothing. They call it. Ireland there was tons of our there was tons. No I apologize to those other Ireland Ireland. Yes also ironically. You're talking about how you know. These England naming rights are difficult for us Americans and yet the weirdest thing we have in America New England New England. There where it's like. Wait this is not a state. As a child there was nothing more confusing about geography than New England. I had no idea where it was. If I put you on the spot right now Jason I can see you about to type on my hands on on the spot right now. Can you name the states that are part of England Massachusetts Maine? I think Maine is in there. Yeah it's it's it's Vermont. I mean if me in their hands yes those to be. Okay you the to more than Rhode Island in there. Yeah got only got one more. Gosh you guys almost nailed it. You're really redeeming yourself completely. New England is Pennsylvania in now. I would never have gone pesos. what are you gonNa go with dancers not Ireland by the way? It is not Connecticut Right. It is 'cause I said Connecticut a minute going respond that it is Connecticut. New England got it. That is man we are so good at this geography and Tom Brady owns all those states. Like all the capital of New England with a they don't have no not a pro. It doesn't exist so regents an idea. Yeah all right okay. Questions Thomas in Juneau Alaska considering we all anticipate James Connor to miss time. Who who would we expect to get the most work in replacing him? Would it be rookie? Anthony McFarland Junior jalen. Samuels or Benny Snell. I have my answer but I want to hear you guys. I I believe based on what has been said From the team and what we saw last year I think it will be finished now. That's what I think it'll be. Benny smells the most electric player tomorrow. From Carolina Anthony McFarland. He's so good he he's fun to watch but I just don't think he is a guy they can rely on to come in and touch the ball fifteen times. He's it actually reminds me a little bit of the Darwin Thomson s hype in in Kansas City. Where McFarland is great? But how much gray you gives mcfarland a fifth round pick as well am I remembering that right. You are wondering right. Yeah fourth fourth fifth year ago. Okay yeah I agree with you. I think it would be Benny. Snell in that situation when it comes. Yep System the Truth Arman in Tucson Arizona who has the better fantasy career TJ Hodkinson or Noah fant mouth full dynasty league. This is a great question because I'm GonNa here's the answer. I have figured it out. I have no idea. Sorry for asking a question Arman I know I like I don't even have. I really don't have an angle on like Hawkins dropped so many passes last year that could have given. I may wonderful season Fan. Had Explosive plays low volume. We didn't see him with drew. Lock if I had to bet on one now betting on faint if I had about on one that would be Hopkinson. I I liked him more coming in last year. Both guys showed flashes and disappearing acts which is to be expected in a rookie year for a tighter. I like talking. Sin In the pre-draft process. I think an expect him to be on the field more often. He's a good run blocker and I always saw him more in a A Greg Olsen type of role where he's always out there leaking out for passes and and I trust the quarterback situation there which obviously has to factor in. What's funny for Hopkinson is? I think we are disappointed because his week one was so good. Yeah he came is sucks which is totally fair because everybody went out and Russia the waiver wire to pick him up right but if he sucked week one then he would have sucked the entire year. Yes you're this. Expectation would not have had have changed in formulated against Hawkins would have just been always a rookie tight end. He was high first round pick. It takes some time in. It's it's funny that a player who had success makes you feel more negative about him. I understand what you're saying but that is the flashes the Jason's talking about you got to see a game changing week. Cheney tied in performance mind you it was only in one week and against Arizona who everyone had a game changing week. Yeah exactly exactly so fant fant. His trajectory went up towards the back half of the year whereas Hodkinson didn't really come back and fantasy relevance at all during the season he's obviously the higher draft capital guy. He's the player that had opportunities and blew it. So I like I said Jason Disagree. I don't know the answer. It's Eileen Hopkinson but is the slightest of lean. I'm a pretty big fan fan this year. They just call you a fant. Yeah I knew it was there. There's nothing I mean I haven't hired in both of YOU GUYS. I am ten. Wow that's the break. I mean look that could easily happen for either. One of these guys could be a tight top ten tight in this year. They were drafted to be very relevant. Pass catching options for their respective teams. All right one more. Let's go travis. Who Lives in Kyle Texas? Is it a standard scoring at Kyle's at Kyle's house in Texas okay just clarifying in a standard scoring league? Is it worth handcuffing? Zach Ertz with Dallas Goddard. This season Standard League six bench spots. But this is a pure handcuffing. A title Question No. I don't think it's it's never worth handcuffing tight end. Unless you're talking about a Dynasty League where you've thirty roster spots. Yeah I mean Got It will be drafted in. Mostly believe that. So you know someone is going to grab him. Maybe even to start on a weekend week out basis. But I can't imagine that you start. Got Her on a roster when you have ever got. We'll have weeks you'll get the touchdowns just never will make that decision to go. Yeah this week. Feels like a goddard week right. So if he's on your bench. Then you're just you're going to be lamenting. Eventually you will develop a spite for Dallas. Got Her of taking up your bench spot that you can't pick up someone from waivers and you and then you'll be even more feel more pot committed that now you can't drop him as the season progresses because now the injury risk for. Jacquards is going up as he plays more. It's a bad situation. Then you know you'll try you'll try to trade them but you're league will know that you're up against the tight end spot so you really need to drop him and then you'll just end up being so don't do it. And while he has missed games in over the last three seasons since he's been really the starter he's averaged fourteen point seven games played. So you'RE GONNA but that game name when he goes down you'll be prepped. Say That's not a good fantasy strategy in general is like Oh man. I can't wait for this guy to finally fall off so I can take advantage behind him and I'm going to predict that you're going to get it wrong word. Get a right yes so.

Best Early ADP Values! (06/08 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from CBS. Sports Gov mail us at fantasy. Football ed CBS. I dot, com took. Time to dominate your fantasy league. Of. Janey age you know that Carolina was second, in the NFL, in pass attempts, but twentieth and passing yards and second to last in passing touchdowns, imagine with Dj more could do with better quarterback, and can you believe you can get him in the fourth round right now? Did you know that in his twelve starts Daniel Jones was on pace four thousand thirteen passing yards with thirty two touchdown passes, that would have been rookie record but also sixteen interceptions and guess how many fumbles guys fumbles Daniel. Jones is on pace for his twelve starts one hundred, thirty seven. A more realistic answer is probably going to be sixteen twenty three o, the old Mj twenty-three fumbles in his sixteen. Just a couple of players we're GONNA. Be Talking about today as we look at early ADP and the best values that we see and did you also know that I am embarrassed. For you guys by you guys for not getting the road trip reference in the emails on Monday's show. It was pathetic and now I know how it feels when we don't get a reference. And people were sitting there, listening and screaming at their speaker or their phone going Rajib. It's trip Ben. Shrager I had come in and save the day. Thank you should be. Doing my best. Did you know that? Did you have to look it up? Oh! I had to look for sure. You'd never see me probably never seen road trip because it came up before he was born. Yeah, no chance I'M GONNA throw a name to you? Ben. Shrager tell me if you know who this person is Tom, green. Tom Corinne. Golfer NO IDEA I use it road trip. He was extremely popular. What's a time and he's the one who said. On the red. Zone exactly why it's good to be back. Guys I missed Ya and Ben Ben Crutches back to took a week off as well. Tom Green is such a throwback name. I remember like back in the trl days when he Yeah like lucky. That song like got like number one on trl. Then he liked retired. That's the one thing I remember from. That show is like moment. He was like live and they. He got number one one. You know whatever? Green there was a funny show. ANYTHING FROM Thirteen or before an shrager has no idea what it. Unless. It's baseball related I have a feeling. He knows his baseball history really well. That's fine could be a fun game. Let's we'll find some early. Two thousands pop pop culture trivia and see how we are L. Trl trl now no. That's bad. I barely know what it is. I'm so old and east too young. Well we're gonNA talk fantasy football. We looked at early PR average rap position on fantasy football calculator. Some really surprising stuff and Dave and Jamie actually was supposed to be on. Today's show picked out a quarterback, two running backs, wide receivers and tight end. The best, or at least some of the best early quarterback values, so we'll get into that I wanNA talk about surprising ADP though. And just a few things. I noticed how about NPR Derrick. Henry and Josh Jacobs. Five and six in. Derrick Henry rb five Josh Jacobs. That'd be by surprise in full Pr. I get Henry being up there high because he had the huge year last year and people are going to. Overlook. The the workload and the lack of catch is I. Don't know if they should overlook it but I think that he's going to be. He and Lamar Jackson will be like to consensus early picks. That were just not going to agree with. especially in Pr Jacobs's really weird because he had a good year last year. There's no doubt and I think people are expecting them to progress in the second year, but so many more. potential running backs there that can take work away from him and I I really shouldn't say running back people because they added a bunch of receivers to. So? I'm I'm really not sure of that. I hope when I get to my drafts in August and September that people are taking Jacobson ran. One is that'll mean somebody special will fall the me. Okay. Yeah Derrick Henry was RB. Three I believe in PR last year. Actually rb five. I have as McCaffrey one. Jones Zeke. Henry off to double check on that, but he was two and non PBR. Yeah, I just don't know how they call me by surprise. Ben, some surprising wide receiver ADP how about the Andre Hopkins is wide receiver to. But that? Surprising for me to we always have to consider sourcing, and this is one source. There's there's different sources I think like Josh Jacobs is a good example. Because I think there's a lot of places where he's not going quite that but. Yeah I. I agree with those running backs and I agree with with Hopkins as well I haven't ranked seventh. Why, don't you? Who Goes I I love Hopkins. I still think that's a little too soon. Just a little, not a lot who goes first for you guys between Henry, Jacobs and Hopkins who's the first off the board. I think it's Henry. It's definitely Henry and non PBR I think I might have hopkins ahead of Henry and Full Pr. I have it. As Hopkins NPR. Okay and then this is the wacky EST one. I am Oh. Rob Gronkowski is the six tight end off the board right now, according to this fantasy football calculator PTR ADP. Rob Gronkowski's and six. People love the GRONK. But at the same time you say the wacky one. We've talked all off-season about once. You get outside those i. Four tight ends Yep e- could really rank the next ten fifteen. Like pretty interchangeably, so it's not that wild to me. Like it's just one of those things, he, he's probably not that separated from the guys immediately behind him. Yeah. He's not really you're right. He's sixty nine, th overall Evan. Ingram is seventy third. Oh my God I say that again, please. Sixty ninth overall, yes. You know what else is funny about. That is like he's also. The ninth pick of the sixth round. which just happens to be sixty? So He's six point nine, and he's sixty nine overall rob. Gronkowski, then. It's Ingram Hunter Henry. Tyler higby. Like. He's twenty. He's almost twenty spots ahead of Tyler Egg. which I know we're going to talk about. being a little bit. All right, so there's a little bit of some surprises. Was surprised at just how lucky he got when we played poker a couple of weeks ago. I don't think he's going to be playing this week, but that's good. That means it means I might actually win. Tuesday night seven PM Eastern on our twitch channels which dot com slash F F today. We're going to be some more poker talking some more fantasy football. This is going to be hosted by our friends. At faded, spayed faded spade card club is a new social poker platform offering free play and custom games. That's at twitter dot com slash F F today. It was Super Fun. Couple of weeks ago and we did I'm looking forward to getting. It might have been fun for you. Great about you've bowing out so early, though is, that could just fire fantasy football questions at you, and you could answer them, and then we play poker. Yeah, that was swell. It's not a bad fallback. There's that and then I also want to promote one thing on our on our CBS. Sports DOT COM website, non fantasy kind of a cool feature. We're doing on sports. Dot Com Slash F. L. I think it's called the franchise five. They're looking at every team. In the five best players or coaches like the forty niners, one coach, one quarterback in three players. Okay, okay, yeah, like the forty Niners Bill Walsh, Joe, Montana and then. You probably I. Don't know if you'd guess the other three, but go ahead and check it out. You probably get to the other three. It's really cool, and I'M GONNA say Jerry Racist. On there. I wanted them was a little surprising. I'll say that for the niners, and then the cardinals like the Arizona cardinals. You wouldn't even. There was this one player I think two or three that I just didn't even know. 'cause some guys from the forties and whatnot, but. You know it's fine at school. Check it. Out CBSSPORTS DOT. COM SLASH NFL. You guys ready for your news and notes. Okay. There aren't any. What yeah, there are no news notes. Do. You have any that I missed. I mean there's little things that came out I. Think we talked about last week about the titans, offense and right, and what what? They might look like I I did read that Jerry Judy is working out with drew lock. Hamblur had some workouts with drew lock I've been keeping an eye on the broncos offense so kind of excited about that K J HAMMER Is like. A completely forgotten about and fantasy this year, right? There's zero cage hamblur interest. Correct should there be any. Deeper leak Sherp best ball four Scher. But I feel like he's going to. He's not like Jerry Judy. In that. He's you know NFL right. He's got a lot of work to do, but the speed is going to have to be respected. He'll catch one big pass within the first three weeks of the season. That'll put him on the radar, and that will really help open things up in Denver, it'll be interesting sailor using because I remember reading that in your red update on the Denver offense, which was really good I was Kinda thinking him of him as more of a slot guy in Sutton. Such downfield option that. They might be limiting him underneath, and they can be yards after catch county guy and he's a great athlete could be used either way, but that's It'll be interesting because they might run. Some two tight end sets also drafted. Alberta Okwu Venom, but he. Is Not really NFL. Thought to be as as NFL thought to be a little bit more raw. so they might not, he might just be more of a direct backup to elephant but yet typically the title of the Slot Receiver. Those are GONNA BE CONFLICTING POSITIONS? The broncos also use a fullback Antigen John. I think they're gonNA. I think the fullback is going to be out. Okay with the change in offense. The fullback I don't think Jan of riches even there anymore. Maybe, maybe he's gone. I'll double check that, but I think I think he's gone so yeah, how much they use a slot? How much they use! Three receiver sets will impact a ham with, but hammer was a good prospect i. think he's a decent yeah at. Forty, seven Greg Kraft. Would you care to take a guess on what team Andy? Jan is on now or Ianovich the Patriots. NOPE, but it'll make sense when I tell you the browns. Accents they're gonNA be deemed that wants to run a team. That definitely has A. Play call who has a background of using a fullback. By the way I think that move alone, it tells you a little bit about the direction of both the Broncos they end the browns. Were later this week. Our Wednesday, episode, who recorded Tuesday maybe here Tuesday night. Why receivers where they lineup wide receiver depth charts, things like that. You know you need to know who played in the slot. Who plays outside? Who does both? We're going to talk about that on record tomorrow afternoon. Not sure if it'll publish Tuesday night or Wednesday, but that'll be a pretty informative episode. I have another news item Dave Ben Ooh. I have another kid. Yeah, so I was out last hardy knew that though that's news to me, avenues to the listeners I was not on vacation I was on paternity leave. We have a baby girl. Yeah two year olds next next month. We'll have a two year old and. We already have him. He'll be two next month. We're not getting him next month at age too late delivery. Yeah, and last two. Fridays ago. We had we had our baby girl and now oh I. Basically. AM The MacAulay Kokin aftershave face all the time that is life. But it's great. It's great. Story to tell guys all right since you guys have daughters. My son, who's fifteen going on sixteen? Meta lovely lady on snapchat and went to her house at drop-off at him off at her house, or parents were their parents were really nice and yeah As far as I know, everything went well, but I just thought to myself just how and I've got a daughter to some day. That's going to be me welcoming a guy to see my daughter. and. It's not going to be you know a friend. They're not going to be just friends and. Yeah, it's it's a little bit. I don't know how I'M GONNA. Feel about that, not sure if I'm going to be cool about that or not, not as cool as these parents were with their daughter. What if she like dates, a guy who doesn't like football? How insulting would that be? In four out of out of a few days old. Probably Open, wait a little longer to have no, but. For you, Ben, it's going to be at least five years for Adams got a decade plus. That happens to him, so enjoy this. Enjoy these moments because I'm still enjoying. My but I know that the clock is really ticking. My daughter's almost thirteen. Yeah! They up so fast. They really do now like a Lotta pictures and videos picking up the two year old now is like. It's like. How a batter puts a donut on his bat when he's in the on on the on-deck circle. That's what being of the newborns like. After I pick up by Sun, and then you take the. She is so light, and he just looks enormous now. where I don't want, nobody cares so anyway. Just WanNA share the news. And I'm happy back exactly. Thank I wanted to know how many cases of Pampers you have in your house. Oh. You don't know us very well, Dave. We have like all natural. Organic diapers were one of those weird families that doesn't like anything. That's not organic. We have a lot of them, and we're trying to figure out the right size right now, so we have. We have plenty and we also got a gift basket. Of like English Muffins and scones and stuff, and that has been so far the best part of the last week. Thank you for the gift basket to my friends. Who got it to me? I've been really pigging out of very unhealthy week all right, so we're detoxing now. We're talking fantasy football. This is an easy email of the day fantasy football CBS dot. COM COMES FROM AJ from city west of Chicago. He says Oh Dave city west of Chicago. Damore in Iowa dear, Frank Buddy Ron and Jacob Abeam. I think it's I think that's I pronounced it. Is that road trip atom. No, it's not it's. It's Will Ferrell characters. Frank the tank, buddy, the L, Ron Burgundy, and then that's Mugabe whose first name from lander. My League is finally instituting fab instead of waivers this year. Please settle. The debate is a better to have the winning bid. Be Exact, or the winning bid goes to the highest bidder, but they only have to pay one dollar more than the next highest bid, for example, if I been fifteen bucks for a player and another owner bits thirty does the other owners pay thirty or sixteen? I've only ever played the way that they they bid thirty. And I think that's probably the more common way in the way to do it, but. I would mind playing the other way. Wait a minute. Wait a minute, you play. Where did you get him for thirty? Yeah. I I'm the opposite I the badly. That I'm in. It's the highest dollar amount, so let's say I go all in on a player. I tie Johnson's on the waiver where I gotta get him. One hundred. Hundred budget and the next highest bid is thirty two. I would win him for thirty three. Really, that's not how you do it in our leaks, because I know I've. I've never one hundred no way times and gotten players for less. No, no, no, not in our not narrowly. No Way I've never ever played in a family like that. In fact. I put easy meal of the day. No I put easy email of the day because I thought this was a no brainer I. Definitely thirty don't just one hundred and then get the next I mean. Somebody could ninety nine, and then you're stuck with the person for one hundred, but like no, you. You Bid Thirty. You win them. You pay thirty. Promised David works every single family grin. Everyone is like that. Everyone, that you and I are in together I. Honestly I think you're wrong. I know right I am the commissioner of one of them. I! Remember it either because like I remember. Overbidding on some guys in our leagues last year and you got them at the exact amount. You bid. Yeah, of course. Well I I. Vote for you. Get what you did. Not a dollar more than the second highest bid. That's what I would say. That's what Ben would say. Dave is. Not there I think the dollar more. It's interesting to consider, but not the start probably. I think I think the way that you guys think our lease is run. Makes it more interesting and exciting? Because if you overbid you, go crazy with the bid. Almost, you should also know what all the bits were. Oh yeah, that way the person that over bids and spent one Ontai Johnson. Get laughed at for it actually that I did want to bring that up if you play on CBS, there's a League setting where you can see all of the bids. Obviously after the players been one. it comes in an e mail shows you the bid history, so enable that setting and it's act. That's actually really cool. It was a good feature got me going back and looking through I. There's a specific transaction that I can look and see good luck. I'm telling you. I'm gonNA find it and. It's when I picked up Gronk in our dynasty league while not in that league. Right early. That's got FAB. Yeah, but I told you the League's that you and I are in together. They don't work that way early. ADP values here. We go the crux of the show. Some of the best values you can find right now based on fantasy football calculator full, our average draft position Ben I'm going to let you go first with the quarterback. We'll have Dave's quarterback and then I'm gonNA. Let swaggie be play Jamie today and reveal Jamie's team, but then the quarterback that you think is the best value right now is. Jared Goff. He's keeping twenty over there If you. Ask them want to go with Matthew Stafford. We've talked a lot about him. I always want to. He's my favorite late round guy if he falls Goff Accu qb twenty is really good value at that price he was. I think you'd be eleven last year. like based on on F. F today. He was qb eleven last year QB. Six Year, before could be twelve the year before that so a low end qb one to the last three years, and then had the really good year in and twenty eighteen. But we talked about during the regression week that last last year, his touchdown regression was was pretty bad it. It was kind of progressing from two thousand eighteen in kind of over regressed, and so now we expect probably that you will throw more touchdowns in the twenty three through last year he threw twenty, eight and thirty, two, the two prior years. and the rams. We know their offense. Kinda got figured out the previous year. Super, bowl their eleven personnel. All those things goths. You know I think it's kind of a bad rap because people don't think he's necessarily that great of a quarterback, he doesn't do well and pressure is in play on the road, but you gotTA. Remember when you're picking Golf. Not Necessarily just picking Goff you're also investing in Sean mcvay, who I still think is one of the better offensive minds. Minds in the League and they did kind of figure things out late in the year he threw for at least two hundred eighty yards, multiple touchdowns each of their last five games i. mean he just really struggled early and specifically in the middle of the year, but lately year they figured things out an he was good again. for five straight games and really consistent so I I think that's GONNA hopefully. Carry over I expect that he will outperform this pretty easily. He was the as you mentioned number, six quarterback and fantasy in two thousand, eighteen and I'm almost positive. He was the number two quarterback before Cooper cups injury. He played seven upset. Yeah, he was great. Yeah, he averaged twenty seven point six fantasy points per game before Cooper Cup got her in two thousand eighteen, and then the rams really haven't been the same since Cup got her that your since girly got hurt really I. my question like you can make a lot of statistical arguments for golf and I. Think qb Twenty for a great call, but Is He quarterback. WHO's offensive line matters maybe more than any other quarterback as you mentioned the rap on him is, he's so good when the when the pocket is clean, but he really struggles under pressure, so is that going to kind of supersede any other type of argument for Golf? Should, yeah, and I think That's part of I bring the last five weeks, they started using the tight ends more. They started using multiple titans. More and I think they are intending to to go that way. This year they let brain a traded brandin cooks, and yes, they drafted Van Jefferson Have Josh. Reynolds, but I don't think around see as much eleven. Personnel out of them may WANNA. See a Lotta, Cooper and Robert Woods and then higby and Gerald Everett and bringing in extra production protection to try to to help golf. And change things a little bit in a way that should be helpful, but the upside point you made in two thousand eighteen and other point I. WanNa make on him I think a reason he goes so low as people were all really excited about running quarterbacks especially after the Jacks did last year, and it's it's important. It's clear that that's where the extreme upside is. I do think there's a little bit of an over correction there I mean there's guys that are runners that. That are going incredibly high. Now that we kind of say, they have that upside and they do. They might not necessarily be just because they're good. Runners doesn't mean that they're going to be elite. Fancy quarterbacks, editors guys that gough who is going so late in part because he gives you nothing as a running on the running side, but he still there are still quarterbacks who don't run who have really high upside which he noted he did early. Twenty team is still there, yeah? And I've I've talked a lot about this that that there were only three quarterbacks who finished top twelve last year in six point, passing touchdown leagues with less than two hundred rushing yards, and none of them finished top six. However you go back to two thousand eighteen. There were eight quarterbacks. Who finished top twelve, who had less than two hundred, two hundred, rushing yards, including four of the top six Matt Ryan Ben Rothlisberger Andrew Luck Jared Goff. They were QB's two three four and six drew brees was eight, Rogers was neither hundred sixty nine Philip rivers qb seven rushing yards, kirk cousins and Tom Brady. They were top twelve quarterbacks. So last year was the year for the Russian quarterback, but two thousand eighteen was the year for the pocket passer, so you don't WanNa completely overlook those guys. We'll come back to jared. Goff Alaska some more questions about him. At the end of our little quarterback. Spiel who's your quarterback your best value right now. I thought that Deck Prescott around six was pretty. Appealing I think about how quarterbacks are GONNA go in. Typical drafts, not necessarily. Our drafts and I think if you can get Dak Prescott then. That's extremely good value. I think it's still good value in our draft. will all view him a top three to four fantasy quarterback? Going into the year? We love his weapons. Love offense. We love his offensive line. We love his ability to run the ball and I believe that there's really a good chance for him to match what he did last year and I know. That sounds crazy, but I think that is possible now. that. They're. The kept the offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. McCarthy will have his influence I. There's a change at center. I'm not really chew worried about that. He's got a lot of things going for him. The Jared Goff doesn't have going for them. And to get him six around earlier than golf I think it's going to be worth it. I think he's got a chance to be really strong and how about this? Is there excuse me is there potential for him to be the number one quarterback in fantasy? Now you might say no. There's no way but if. It really it'll come down to injury more than anything else from a homes and with Jackson if there's some serious regression. Doors Open You might say a ten percent chance, and you might even say that somebody like to Shawn Watson or Russell. Wilson, even column is a better chance to be qb one, but I think he does have a little bit of that chance and I think there's a really good chance. He finishes top three to five and so at round six. That's an excellent value. Ben Prescott He. He had a career year. He threw. For a more than one thousand four yards, and he ever had any at seven more passing touchdowns than ever before, but he also threw the ball more a lot more than ever. His touchdown rate was five percent. It's in his other three seasons. It was five percent four point five percent four point two percent so. Does he? I mean it doesn't seem like that was unsustainable. It doesn't seem like he's a huge aggression candidate there, right? By percent I agree. Yeah, no I think that's correct. I think started on the ball downfield a lot more last year as well in the office coordinator change matter and I think he'll continue to do that. With Amari Cooper and Michael Gal both having good years last year, and clearly being talked to receiver. Some you think back to before twenty eighteen. You know he didn't even have Mark Cooper and they got a midseason. last year was really the first year where he had these two downfield weapons and a new office coordinator, and they had a different type offense, more vertical offense, and now he had CD Liam. There's plenty of upside for him to to carry a solid t right in solid yards per attempt because he's being. With his passing and then last thing I'll say about. The sixth most pass attempts in the NFL, but only fifteenth most in the red, zone and twenty seventh most pass attempts inside the ten yard line. He's never had a lot of those, but it was really low last year and hope. Maybe maybe they'll throw a little bit more near the goal line, and maybe he could have one of those liar touchdowns they might. They might be enticed to do so now with the receivers that they have maybe so you. How fairness part of that's because he runs in that area to came. Up some Russian. Just and Zeke is going to get as work there, so the key question is just going to be. How do you rank Dak cuyler Wilson Watson according to this? It's Cuyler Dak Wilson Watson, how do you guys rent those for? Dak Is my favorite of the group me to. Wilson Tyler Watson. That's my order as well. But in the next week or two I may flip cuyler and Watson depending on what I learned about the Texans offense and Fake Jamie. WHO's your favorite quarterback value right now? Olds actually my favorite quarterback two. It's Daniel Jones. Eleven drowned. Seventeenth quarterback off the Board Daniel Jones and his twenty three fumble pace. Eleventh Round Seventeenth Quarterback, so guys Golfer Jones who would rather have? Jones. For the upside. Yeah I have Jones hires will. Really. Just one spot, but we talk. We've talked about how he had a couple upside passing games and showed that kind of ceiling. We've talked about how and it's. Very well documented how how injured the giants? Receiving core was last year but Jones out a little bit as a Russia's well. You know you touch that. Two hundred benchmarking only played thirteen games last year over. Well over that hit two hundred seventy nine rushing yards. He's he's got a little mobility. You'll give twenty yards most weeks. which is helpful, but it's helpful for the floored Soho Zealand. are going to take a look at our favorite running back values after this quick break on fantasy football today.

We are part of the CBS sports podcast network, so nothing personal is available on Apple. spotify stitcher wherever else podcasts or found, and as we all do our part and continue to stay home, and how flat the curve remember I'm here for you, but it's just business. It's nothing personal. Before we get into running. Backs has solved the mystery of the free agent acquisition budget also known as Fab Yeah. I can confidently say that. It's exactly what I thought. It was that when you bid whatever the highest bid is. WHO GETS IT? It's not going to be a dollar more than the second is bid. It's going to be for example if you bid thirty and somebody else bids thirteen. You get him for thirty period end of story. You're welcome. Okay. I can't tell you're joking or if you were confused earlier, because that's exactly what we said, not what you said. No I said it's for you know who the highest bid gets in, and it's not based on anybody else's bid. You were talking about Oh. It's the next dollar. Ben and I were on the stage. Act Now I get. Performance. They had very convincing. Dave likes a couple a rookie running backs later as his favorite values right now. ZAC Moss. Around eleven and I'm falling in love with Antonio Gibson. Oh in twelve. Yeah, we're I think we're going to go to applebees later. Last night was applebee's I was surprised. It was pretty good. You know they've got that case at the Burger thing. I don't know if they still have it. They had it. For my ten years ago, I don't know, but it was good. I enjoyed it. And you know they've got the boneless wings as well. Zach Moss is replacing. Frank Gore. Is it a stretch to say that he could be a lot better than frank. Gore bills keep talking him up like they want him to be. Half literally half the engine of their run offense. Could we get to a point? In August in non PR goes ahead of Devon Single Terry. I think the answer is maybe and he. He's not a burner, but he's physical. He can create yards by joking and running through tacklers similar to Devon single -tary and guess he's going to get that short yardage role and I said on last week's podcast there were there were a number of times last year or Gore. We get goal line opportunity. He would struggle and then Josh Allen would clean it up and he would score a touchdown. I think moss can score on those touchdowns I think he can find the endzone there and so finding a running back. That could get a dozen touches a week. Right off the bat in round eleven is good and I don't know if Gibson's ever going to get a dozen touches in a game, but he's going to get a lot of catches and every time Scott Turner talked about being creative or versatile with the with the new Washington offense. He mentioned Gibson an even talked about Gibson and his ability as a receiver, so they're gonNA get creative with him, and you think about all the other wideouts that they have outside of maclaurin. Maybe it's Stevenson's. Maybe it's coming arm and maybe gold I wonder if Gibson is good enough to contribute as a mismatch type of player in that offense on a more regular basis than we give them credit for when they drafted him. Would you rather have Darius? Guys around or Gibson around twelve hips, and around twelve hands down. I'm I'm done with guys I can't. I don't see a path for him to have a huge week in week out type of. A touch count. How you been? For me. Okay I mean I I understand days frustration but I think if he's healthy. He was the number considered. Pretty Universally Dynasty circles the number two prospect in that class, and yes, he spent her whole philosophy years for. Let's say he is healthy. I don't see why not. Why not? He can't be a third year breakout the. You realize is really good, and he looked good when he played last year yet that. It was like ten carry hundred yard two touchdown game yet. That was one amazing game that he had. Yep. He's barely played, but and I wish we had more of those games to help. US Carolina I think there's I think there's a lot of running backs in Washington for a reason I. Bet they're going to be hesitant to give a lot of work every week to Geiss. Lucky tour up Carolina, but also in that game Adrian Peterson had thirteen carries for ninety nine yards and a touchdown call at that Point Carolina had like three defensive tackles. who were out? They were the worst then the Jaguars they were just the worst run defenses so Geiss yet ten carries twenty nine yards two touchdowns. That's good any way you slice it. He followed it up the next week with five carries for forty two yards that was against green bay. They had a terrible run events. You've got hurt in that game, but he was off to a good start. And then you still Peterson. There's well all right, so Dave says Gibson and Moss Ben who are your favorite running back about us right now? So I think this is a hard question, I think running backs a difficult. Position to to talk about in terms of the value in its funny like this entire episode I could just go off on. A completely different tangent and do my typical where I'm like this, what is value because? When I looked at running back eighty this running back ap against my ranks, the two guys it with furthest higher in my ranks were Tariq cone, hime Hines, but they might be values compared to their ADP, but they also lack upside, and there's a reason you know i. it's just kind of a philosophical thing about where you rank this player because. Certain ways that you're building roster, you might WanNa take a higher floor contributor. That doesn't have a huge ceiling, and in other ways you might be swinging for the fences so it's it's. It's challenging, but I figured I'd package two guys in that I think both hundred valley which is Jonathan Taylor hines Taylor at four hundred eight people think is probably overvalue He's have phenomenal prospect, and I think there's a couple of things that are really working in his favor with colts their offensive. Offensive, line, you're going to be improved. I think they're going to lead. You're going to run a lot, so I think it's a really good situation for Taylor GonNa have a good rookie, year and I. I see a lot of ways that he beats out far. Wait Eighty P, maybe not from week one, but especially later in the season. When you know when fantasy leagues are being decided and then hines Rapson here with Taylor. The thing that everyone is saying what. Tillerson can't catch passes. I think with pretty much any day that we look at you. Kind of have to decide what you believe in what you don't believe in either believe that Philip rivers dramatically impacts is running backs receiving numbers. I think that is because of how he plays. We've talked about how mobile quarterbacks don't throw running backs as much because in of checking down, they scramble. Philip rivers is completely immobile. He's also for all his faults very good at getting. Getting through his reads and getting to the outlet pass. He's always been good at that guys like Danny. Woodhead guys Mike Tolbert years and years ago of always had good receiving numbers, but Melvin Gordon went. WanNa highlight alongside Taylor. Another Wisconsin back had about half as many receptions Taylor in college was completely unused passing game. People thought he could not catch the ball. He always had solid receiving numbers alongside guys like neck and earlier, Danny woodhead I just think colts running backs as a whole right now are undervalued relative to their receiving upside. Pr Leagues Taylor I understand wasn't a great receiving back. In College I think he's in a position where he's going to at least plan. Some passing downs, and rivers will check the ball down to him, I think he catches at least thirty balls. If you look at Melvin, Bordon's history cut thirty forty usually in almost every year. Again I know Max there. I don't like Marla Mac nearly as much Taylor hines oath have plenty of receiving. Would you. Guys rather have Jonathan Taylor late round four or Marlin Mac about the seven eight turn. I have to pick one yeah I don't know if I'd really feel good about either one. I don't I, don't I. Think there's a different story being told when we Jonathan Taylor going in the fourth round. Pick, what s your question attention question? I think I'll say mattress because I think it's way too soon for Taylor, around four. What's? The story that I. See is that running backs are going to fly off the board. Like crazy and we're starting to see it in some f drafts, and in in this ADP, seventy one of the first twenty seven players or running backs and I get it because once you get past the first fourteen fifteen sixteen running backs. There's guys with question marks, and there's no doubt that Taylor is one of those guys who has question marks and people are still going to go after him. you know maybe in regular draft by the time we get to August if his situation hasn't changed for the better, it could be around five. Maybe round six. Maybe but people are gonNA. Gobble up running backs. The first round is going to be dominated by them, and I'm starting to think that the second and third rounds are going to be. They're gonNA running backs as well and I almost want to start trying to begin my drafts in our mocks with three running backs, no matter what. You know devante. Mac No matter what type of of a strategy with running backs his take three right off the bat makeup ground receivers, and there are some sleeper running backs later that I can grab. That's what I'm seeing with the ADP because I. There was something Ben said at the very beginning of when you taught that ADP is. You know really hard to talk about with running backs because there aren't a lot of great. And as for Taylor himself, there's. Got Every possible outcome in the book. I, mean he he could end up struggling and training camp with you know no offseason program fumbles in the preseason, and you barely see him until mid October or he comes in, he shows right away. How talented he is Marlin Mac. A hamstring. He's out for three games John. The Taylor takes off and he catches a bunch of passes along the way there's evidence of him being a good pass catcher at Wisconsin. They just didn't throw him a lot. And and Ben laid it out. Rivers throws to his running backs that check down is therefore a lot, so he's he's a big. I think he's kind of a big risk in round four. Value for Jonathan Taylor at this point. The point you made about running next going early and I completely agree with that especially on this ADP we're looking at from facebook calculator because I didn't find a lot of values in my ranks based on where they were going. Does it change your mind if I tell you goes four hundred eight one spot behind rain moster on this ADP I mean. That's just another example of how ridiculous the running backs flying off the board. I don't think any of US would take most certain round four, even Adam. WHO LOVES MOSTER I love. I like them but no. Pain I would not take him. This is this is full PR and seventeen in the first twenty seven picks running backs. You're right. That is a that is a really interesting Trindon. For Round Four pick seven. That's crazy. I, just I want to move it along. Let's get to the wide receiver. We've got bogus Jamie Bogus Jamie. Who your favorite running backs. Map Rita Round hines in the fourteenth and then Darning Evans and Kelly from the chargers who are undrafted also favors for Jamie so he's got. To Rookies Map Rita and the Hemans. Showed up on my list too YEP. Yeah I think he makes Lonsdale and yeah. An halley were both around eight. They both have round ADP. Josh Howard. We don't talk about him a lot, but. I mean is there a hundred and fifty carries for Kelly or is that too much? There's GonNa Injury to Justin Jackson for him to get there. Okay Yeah. I think I like him I think he's a good value. James Right to take him late, but I agree with with Dave We. Problem again. This is another reason why running backs tough right now. We don't know what the charts are like it make. It's a lot easier to to signal out. Good late round running back targets. We hear a little bit about training camp and hopefully begin information Things might be a little bit different, but. We. Want to know whether Justin Jackson whether we get any indication about Justin. Jackson Joshua Kelly and their roles and their order behind Equa. And that brings us to a wide receiver, guys and Ben I'll start with you. Your favorite wide receiver values right now and Dave both have dj I look I know. We talked about Dj more a lot. We do not AJ Brown in the show today, but we do have dj more and deservedly, so I can't believe he's going around for what's going on there. It doesn't make any sense. So like the part of the argument for Taylor would be like. There's possibilities where he could be a first round. Pick and you know there's a lot of value there. There's guys like most can't be there for more any outcome. I can imagine he beats this like I need to say that like as clearly as possible. There's no way he doesn't beat this unless he gets injured or just. Maybe he's a little bit behind it but last year. Year like don't realize how good he was. He missed the last game and essentially the whole of sixteen, because he had a calf injury after six snaps in week, sixteen left the game did come back. They help out week seventeen. It was law season through fourteen games. He was pacing for one hundred fifty two targets, hundred and fifty two targets, ninety eight catches, thirteen, hundred and forty two yards. It's like almost identical to Michael, Thomas a second season. Actually have the numbers right here. He had nine point five targets per game. MOMS that your head, nine point three six point one catches Thomas had six point five. He's always had a really good catch rate Michael Thomas, so he was a little higher on receptions, but Moore's more explosive yet eighty three point nine yards per game Thomas only had seventy seven point eight. They both both average point three touchdowns. Yes, it's touchdowns hasn't been great, but he scored I think it's seventeen touchdowns in college, receiving touchdowns on just about the same amount of receptions as he has through his pro career to this point in the only six touchdowns in. In the pros right now I don't think that's fundamentally something. He's not capable of doing. There's just as much of a chance that he scored ten touchdowns this year as he scores four again like he did last year, but the key point that I think we have to talk about as he was still very young last year. Put it a bad quarterback like you mentioned I. Just compared him to Thomas. The second season more was twenty two in the second season Thomas. Was Twenty four, and playing with drew brees and Moore's second season, almost identical on a per game basis. If you recognize that he didn't really play in week sixteen. Can at one last thing, yeah? More is a fantastic fit for the new offense and Carolina as his bridgewater where it's going to be a lot of scheming receivers open a lot of foreign five receiver formations figure McCaffrey is one of those receivers by the way, and more can make plays after the catch, and we we. We said it during the season last year. It was kind of funny. We thought Curtis Samuel was the deep ball guy and he got a lot. Lot of deep opportunities and Carolina, but it was Dj more who scored more deep touchdowns and a lot catch and run touchdowns, not a lot, but more than more than Curtis Samuel, so he can, he can do it all. He should still get a Lotta targets of get to one fifty, but he'll pass one twenty easily and NPR. This is insane by it's. It's almost a good value in non it. It is a good value PR. Projection. The other non PBR said Yeah. Somebody had one hundred twenty five targets like let's just. He had one hundred thirty three last year in fourteen through fourteen games like if you're projecting him in sixteen games to have fewer targets I need to understand why, because this is still going to be a team that's trailing still gonNA throw. Bridgewater throws underneath a low average depth, the target any accurate underneath. We talked about completion percentage over expectation on the advanced that show last week. He's good, even when you adjust for the fact is accurate, even when you just with that throws shorter. Shorter more catchable passes. He's a bridgewater. Perfect fit for what more does well on top of all of this is not like. My people are worried about McCaffrey. McCaffrey didn't catch a lot of passes last year, too. He did well Robert Anderson Robbie says they're going to get two hundred and three hundred forty targets I don't understand one two thousand five is low, but but Robbie Anderson is is there and if if that's what people are concerned about I? Don't know, but that's the only. Addition you know that maybe comes to mind. There were people are are lowering targets, but that like that just doesn't make any sense unless their defense is better which. You know it's not going to be good. No, it's GONNA be young. Yeah, I I wonder about people discount more because of bridgewater and they think that. Isn't any good. I'm telling you you're just not paying attention. If if you think that bridgewater can't do what's going to be asked off well, they there. There's that, but he doesn't have. A track record of putting up gaudy numbers. You know so you just take his six starts with the saints. He had one hundred and three point seven passer rating. Five starts pardon me. He was on pace though for three thousand, eight, hundred fifty six yards, which is less than what Kyle Allen. Had or less than what the panthers quarterbacks had. By two hundred and fifty yards, he wasn't pace for twenty nine touchdowns though but. I'm playing devil's advocate here, but that's just like bridgewater's not gonNA. Put up big numbers likely though if they're second in the NFL and pass attempts. You never know. Who else spend DJ more was one of them. Who's your other wide receiver value? Christian Kirk, another guy, we talk about him a little bit, but not Tony another guy who had really good production college age justice production was young early declare and came out and was good in his rookie season in terms of yards per target and all those types of efficiency metrics. He wasn't as good last year, but did rack up over one hundred targets miss a little bit of time as well. Yes, deandre Hopkins is going to be there, I expect. There's GonNa throw more and run more plays. We've talked about their pace. A little bit in recent shows I. Don't think Larry Fitzgerald is going to be a huge part of the offense and particularly. I think Fitzgerald's GonNa be The shallower area of the field which we would expect and. Andre Hopkins is more like intermediate range receiver than a deep threat. He can obviously worked down the field but I think Kirsch Kirk will build make some place down the field. He wasn't efficient last year. The big reason he wasn't last year is his downfield. Efficiencies downfield catch rate at any depths over fifteen yards essentially was really really poor. Last year. It was really good in. In his rookie season the year before, and so for the two years in his career, so far is basically league average. That's just one of those things that can fluctuate I think kirks in a really good spot, though now where of attention is GonNa? Be on Hopkins. He has the potential to kind of be the Willfuller. He's not obviously quite as much of a burners fuller, but. A really good player with a strong profile, a young player who? Don't understand why he goes to the double digit rants forty fourth wide. Receiver off the board tenth round. Pick right now. Christian Kirk and the guy's going around him. There are a lot of interesting names, but. Jerry Judy Henry Rug CD lamb Justin Jefferson jalen rigor. So you've got the most of the round one wide receivers. Where does kirk measure up with those guys? What round one riders NFL draft Where does Kirk measure up with those guys in your mind? I have kirk overall and I like a lot of them. I have cd-rom two spots behind Kirk. But and judy four spots behind him but I have kirk overall. Debut had DJ more is one of your best values also getting Tyler Lockett in the fifth round. You like that and he was. I WANNA say he was. Top Five I'm almost positive before his injury. Had more. PR, Winston every receiver, except for Michael, Thomas and Mike Evans. Weeks of the season wow. He was averaging eight targets per game. He added eighty two percent. Catch her. Ten point six five yards per target. His sixteen game pace before the injury was a hundred and five catches, thirteen, hundred and sixty four yards and eleven touchdowns that would have been good enough to finish the number, two receiver and fantasy, and I think Seattle is going to continue to evolve offensively. Kind digging decay, metcalf, the more and more that I I watch him, and I dig up dirt on him, but I think that that just makes it easier for lock it to take advantage of coverage. Defenses are going to have their hands full with this offense, especially when you consider that, Russ can escape pressure mobilized, and I think the synergy that he has with lock. It gives lock in an edge over metcalf. Both. These receivers have a chance to have a really nice year I'm going to read some of the names going ahead of Tyler Lockett, and you tell me who should be going ahead of him, and who's incorrectly ahead of him decay metcalf. No lock it should be ahead of coralline sutton. Lock, it should be ahead of T Y Hilton. Lock it should be added Robert Woods. Lockerbie ahead of woods AJ Brown. Branch definitely be woods in. The ones that I feel most often. Through those points I'm taking lock over Brown sorry. East Greenwich. Fake fake, Jamie what he got. Who your favorite wide receiver values! Got Anthony Miller in the twelfth round Sterling Shepard on the eleventh, and I'll throw in Golden. State in the thirteenth on top of Shepard. Those jeopardize made my list. Too late for the giants weapons. I can't figure out sterling shepherd this guy over his last two games two seasons. He has had a lot of bad games. He played ten games last year six games with less than fifty yards. In two thousand eighteen. He Played Sixteen Games yet ten games with less than fifty yards. He's he's a strange player. Still Young always deals with interest, and what's interesting about him is when he's had shortened seasons. He's had good seasons. He's had like Oh, he's on pace for a really good year when he's played sixteen games, not really as good although one of those years was his rookie. So why did shepherd almost make your list? Dave because he averages right around thirteen. Thirteen P. PR points per game. He's a good receiver NPR, and I think that if if the giants offense place from behind as much as we think they will I think he can get a lot of inside a fifteen yard, types of targets and I think he can accumulate good numbers. You might put them under the compiler label where they'll continue to see a decent amount targets week in and week out. I don't think there is Slayton is suddenly going to. Turn into a eight or nine target per game wide receiver I think he'll fall below that I think shepherd is a little bit more in line with that I'm hoping he can stay healthy and take advantage of eight targets per week. Maybe seven targets week somewhere in that range, and he can be helpful as A. AH crappier version of DJ more. How would you guys rank the three players? That Jamie mentioned Sterling Shepard. Anthony Miller and Golden Tate. I'm GonNa Take Shepherd I in PR. I'm buying into the the the the consistency in the low ceiling as a bench, wide receiver goes in PPI would take him Miller would be second. Take Miller slightly over shepherd just because. I think he has a little easier path to potentially being clear number two on his team. and Shepherd, theoretically as a better path to being number one, but I just think. The giants are gonNA spread targets around. They have a lot of weapons. We go to the tight ends now and we have definitely covered a lot of these guys in previous shows including last week. So. Let's start with Ben's favorite side and we kind of agreed. We're GONNA do tight ends kind of quickly just because it's. Just, it's kind of same names that have come up in recent episodes. Mike Ezekie twelth round summit up. What do you like about my Kosinski? Just good good athleticism, good prospect profile at Penn, state a second round. Pick we, we typically see titans breakout after a couple of years is going into his third year. Skies you know the type of Clare that you would expect to break out in the in his third season. And then he got a lot of really solid downfield opportunity last year in played in the slot, is receiving a receiving tight end. That wasn't very efficient, but has definitely upside. I'm GonNa read you some names that are going ahead of my Kosinski Tommy if you would take a sticky over any of these guys, no offense. I would take a seeing Austin Hooper. Take Kiama shrager. You ever seen jaws. Yes Oh! Good okay. MIC Ezekiel Jared Cook. Get Sick you by. Nine. Finally, Hayden hearst. One spot ahead. Get Sick. Hearst it is and Dave Tyler higby round eight. Yeah good value on a tight end. That has a chance to be the next George Kill. You saw in the final five games last season. Those were some good games for Derek. Golf by the way, and that's something that I think shaw. McVeigh's going to carry with them into twenty. Twenty is lean on the tight end a little bit more. He'd be quicker than fast type of tight end. Who can make plays? Plays after the catch and he's a big old boy in the red zone, so don't see him falling out of favor and suddenly becoming a sixth offensive lineman in L. A. or anything like that. Don't see Gerald ever coming in and taking a lot of work away from him. I think he's earned his spot and I think he's he's a pretty good athletic tight end. Who can be really helpful for fantasy? Last five games. He scored twenty three more fantasy points than Travis Kelsey was the number one tight end and fantasy. He also Tyler Hickey became the first tight end in the super. Bowl era with four straight games with seven catches and one hundred yards four straight first time. It's I don't think he's going to do that every rally. Not his competition was pre. The best tight on you can draft this year. Yeah, he he, he faced teams that ranked thirty, second, thirty, first, twenty-sixth, six, thirty second against titans. But still really really impressive stuff. All right? We got time for a few emails here. Let's get started with if one from WHO's this, Kyle somewhere between Dallas and San Antonio, Dave you know everything about Texas geography of course I do somewhere between Dallas and San Antonio you say Let's go with killing Texas I know you enjoy a good laugh when talking about Josh Allens accuracy on deep balls, but what does the ceiling for him? If that number drastically improves now that he has a weapon looking at these next gen stats, and he gave us a link to bills. QB! Watch on twitter. And some next Gen stats there it's clear that John. Brown was Allen's only legitimate deep threat, and he was not going to win any jump balls either gigs comes in number one in all deep all categories. So why should we factor in some improvements Josh Allen has improved as a passer. Every year now gets a true number. One add that to his rushing ability. He has top six potential. Couldn't agree more with the fundings love. People don't realize how good the funding is full stop period at all aspects of the receiver position and he's. Really, good. Catch a football. That's three yards over. Right, so the other issue is. Josh Allen. If this is one rump, absolutely going, say watch the tape, he he's not putting balls at our jump balls or are difficult for guys to catch He is sometimes right, but his inaccuracy sometimes is literally like you can go back and watch them John. Brownsville John Brown being five yards behind the defender and Josh, Allen throwing it seven yards beyond genre. That's literally Stefan can't do that. He can't do anything with that. No one can do with the stat. Though that this bills qb watched tweeted was per next gen stats. Stefan digs was first in cash rate yards per target and touchdowns on balls that were throwing twenty or twenty or more yards in the last year. So that's hopefully going to help Josh Allen I. Know You guys talked a lot about him on the prediction show. I? I Love Davis Point about the rushing touchdowns in the Frank Gore ineptitude. And? He's a tough one like gosh. He's such a bad pass or sometimes, but he still has managed to be good and fantasy. So I, understand is gonNA qb seven I don't disagree with the emailer I. Just don't think we can expect digs to make Josh Allen effective passer. Hope ways average. Okay, this is from. Tim In Lone Tree Colorado. Dear Lee, Casey Jamie and Beth. I don't know. Eisenberg's. Hey. Knows Casey Eisenberg. Berkshire on the recent regression episode. I was astonished that if given the opportunity to draft most guys, the group and unanimous unanimously proclaimed, they would prefer Geiss of the to set true. I would take moster. Okay! Seeing as how the niners traded for Trent Williams and the Redskins also drafted Antonio Gibson I wouldn't even put guys in the same tier as regime. Get Out of my way MOSTER. What do you guys think? I, agree. I definitely was one of the people it said guys. I'm immediately thinking of upside. I talked about the reasons for upside for guys than I'm worth most. It's not going to Italy back all year. They're gonNA use a committee. Tab Coleman almost crack my biggest values at running back list as well. but I still think it's getting I. Think he probably should take guess I think this is this greeting from the show. Kevin Costner, show that western yellowstone. got. Let's see if I've time for one more here. Why not right I don't? There's not like I. Have a baby to go watch. From Matt. Hey Tony Silvio, Paulie and Uncle Junior. That's the Sopranos. Never seen it in the midst of a Dynasty Star UPDRAFTS, I'm picking one point six. I know that two of Michael Thomas Zeke Elliott Alvin. Cook will be available at my pick, so it's dynasty startup, and he'll have his choice of Michael Thomas, Zeke and Alvin Cook at least two of them. Another owner just offered me all his twenty, twenty, twenty, one and twenty two rookie draft picks for pick one point six. All of the rookie draft picks in two thousand, twenty, one and twenty, twenty, two four six pick of this dynasty startup. It's the long-term worth passing up on a likely building block for my short term and long term hopes. Theoretically the team that would be getting one point six, and then would also have another first round pick. They would be in good shape heading into twenty, twenty, one and twenty, twenty two, so those rookie picks could be in the back half of the first round and every round. Yeah just from valuation standpoint. That's not enough at one point six. Isn't it crazy? Isn't it crazy? Though because you think about it on the surface and you think Oh. Wow, I've got a chance to get all these rookies and this great draft class and I can maneuver and move up in the draft, and I've got all this extra draft capital. I might do it if the only guy. Well I don't think that's that's a great point Dave. You can probably get one point one next year. You know you could probably get. You might get one one next year because you're going. GonNa be pulling this year without a first round you could, you could figure. You can take all those picks and and. Package them for like two of the first four picks in the draft in the rookie draft next year, and maybe that's enough to give up Michael Thomas. Cook I. Think if you do this. You're doing what Dave said. You're not being competitive in your one and I think this is a fine way to approach a startup. It's an interesting thing I see some really smart people do, but I would immediately then put my second round pick on the block and try to move back and pick up. Somebody's twenty. Twenty twenty one I was trying to move up from the third of the Fourth Round a lot of times people just move one or two rounds in those early rounds will give you their twenty twenty one. I, start stockpiling I was in the Star updraft. This year were another guy in our league ended nine of the twenty twenty one first round picks. Now, you're giving yourself an opportunity to really build a dynasty, but you got commit full to us the only way I would do this. All right. Thank that's GonNa. Do it thank you guys good to be back Dave. Thank you great to speak to you. Same. Back Convinced Ben, Gretz could speak to you. Talking to fake Jamie, thanks for coming on. vk By. Nice, touch Adam saying I data.

5 Fantasy Football Losers In Free Agency 2020

"To the NFL talking heads. Fantasy football podcast. Show your hosts Jeff carrier it seth law. Hello everyone and welcome into the NFL. Talking heads fantasy football podcast the fantasy football podcast for people who want to win. I'm your host Jeff Carey. Here's Seth Lull Hope. Everyone is doing safe out there with the corona virus spreading around providing some more content. Getting back to our second part of this two part series that set has written now live on the website at nfl talking heads Dot Com. That is we originally. Did the top five winners from free agency and now we are doing the top five losers from free agency and some of results of traits so without further ado. Let's go ahead and jump right into the content. Let's break down the players that you felt. Were the five biggest losers coming out of agency the first one you have here is and I think the only running back on this list it is. It is Mr Melvin Gordon at number one and I he I have put him up here. This is the one I hate the most. I mean he's going to Denver. Who is one of the worst offense in the NFL LAST SEASON? Second Year quarterback drew lock was unproven. Just a big downgrade from Philip rivers because the chargers had eight in an struggled last year. But it's one of those situations where they were. Good enough to allow. Melvin Gordon to be successful from fantasy perspective. When he was winning was healthy and playing. So I just think it's downgrading he's going to much worse team with the worst quarterback and then you also have Lindsey Roy's Freeman there. They played a lot of running back by committee. They're saying he's going to be the bell cow until we see it though. I put in the article even if he is the bell cow and he's getting the majority of the touch is scoring. Opportunities are going to be you know. Probably Scarce Yeah And it overall. I just don't understand why the situation I think it's a clear downgrade And I just I don't love it. Yeah another sloppy situation out in Denver. It's been kind of this way for a while now. And also if you're a dicey player that one of the things I mentioned to you. Seth was the thing about sometimes with these running backs. I mean Philly's been doing it for a while. Baltimore's been doing it for a while. Denver's been doing it for a while. They draft one. They signed one. They have an undrafted free agent. Come out and do well in. That's been kind of the ongoing issue or story. Should I say in Denver with relying on their backfield's and how funny is that out in La with the chargers? You have basically a different. I don't know if I was an echo was undrafted or not but low draft undrafted running back younger comes in essentially out plays out takes. Melva gorringe job and what does Denver do? They have a really good undrafted running back and they go out and they pay this guy that was cast off from another team so I agree with you. I don't like it one of the best things about the running backs in the chargers and I keep one in San Diego keep saying. The chargers is the fact that it was Philip. Rivers right. The KI loves to check down to its running backs. He gets them us in the passing game a lot which is going to be a different conversation that we have further down the road with us in. Exeter. But I can really rely on Gordon and two. They clearly have had at least for the most time. That Melvin Gordon was in his career in La Slash. Eggo was Melvin. Gordon's way more competition. It feels like in Denver even though they just went and paid for him. There's no way that Philip Lindsey just kinda system sidelines especially with the way the way we know that. WanNa use running backs? May fill-ins is coming back to back thousand yard seasons in Denver in Roy's Freeman and felt Lindsey combined for ten touchdowns seventy catches combined last season. Over fifteen hundred rushing yards. Is this a lot of production sitting there? There's no way that there's no way that they're going to consolidate Royce Freeman and felt. Lindsey and Melvin. Gordon is going to take everything. There's going to be all three of them. Were presumably going to get some touches. I think so. I think that combined with the offense is just. I'm just not. I wasn't excited by that mood. That move was just a. I think at a certain price. Obviously Melvin. Gordon is going to be valuable. He's GonNa be productive. Is going to have a pretty solid floor but I think the move to. Denver really captures upside. Yep I agree I. This is not one that I like. His upside is capped. He's going to have to a spotty games in Denver. We WANNA be San Francisco scenario with three running backs. We can just run down your throat all game. I'm sure they would love to do that. But until you know until you have a commitment to do it the scheme to do it. I'm not going to believe they have it now. How does may bill? O'brien look. He could have dissuaded inside todd. Gurley or Melvin Gordon. Had he had to trade at the argument the best receiver in the NFL For for a very marginal draft capital took back a monster contract David Johnson but the the second player on the list. While we're on Deandre Hopkins. I have him as number two. Let me jump in real quick. Just because you kind of sparked a quick question for For me so just taking those running backs as maybe a silver lining for him or not. I don't know just kind of curious. Would you at least say that? O'brien got the best out of the running backs if they're all they're available in free agency at the same price. Now you got the third. I think he got the third best out of the three really. I think David Johnson interesting. I mean I don't know it. All depends on Johnson done or is he as bad as he was last season or is he closer to the player who was a couple years ago. I think if healthy Todd Gurley is the best and Todd Tiger get me motivated this year But any Melvyn Melvin. Gordon is Melvin Gordon. To me has the least upside of the three. But he's the most sure of a thing David Johnson's kind of in between I think he's he's definitely asked this question marks but he's got a lot of upside if he's healthy if he's still You know if he's still close to the player that he was I just don't think we know he's yeah he's GonNa turn twenty nine in the season. That's like if a Johnson early. He's turns twenty nine December thirties for wide receiver. So I didn't realize that at all. It's a good point. I mean I. I didn't have a dog in the fight when I asked a question. It just as soon as you said it in terms of him getting Could've gone could on obviously the other two whatnot. So yeah great question. So I've under Hopkins second and this is probably my least favorite out of all my. I liked it a lot at first and I still think this is. I think that his stock definitely takes a hit getting traded from Houston to Arizona. Because you know we always say this when you when you have a players as dominant as deandre Hopkins who? He had kind of an off year last year. But he's consistently one of the top five best fancy wide receivers hands down him And he switches jerseys and he goes to another team learn has learned a new offense about chemistry with another quarterback. It's hard to imagine it in year. One that he isn't going to miss a beat. I think long term. You know after you know twenty twenty one beyond I think this has the potential to be a net positive for DEANDRE HOPKINS BECAUSE HE GETS COLUMN. Murray who might be better than Shawn Watson? He probably has a better offencive head coach in who knows. But it's hard to imagine this this even being as good of a situation as it was this last year indefinitely. Not Better not I think to me when you look at Deandre Hopkins He's the last two years a receiver that was being drafted in the first round is ap right now as a in the first round. Even those early and I think to me this move all it. Does you know we're we're splitting hairs a little bit with because obviously anybody would love to have hopkins on your fantasy team. Even if he's in a cardinals uniform but I think he's a second player now. I think he's an early second round player You know which isn't isn't the end of the world. But I I don't know I mean this trade happen. I it's great for Colin Murray which we talked about our last podcast. But it's I don't want to say it's terrible for Hopkins but I think I think this is a it takes a slight step back. Yeah I'm trying to pull up. What is target's share percentage was twenty nine thousand nine but we we all know. It's at least twenty five percents right so consistently consistently in the top five and fifth in the NFL last year targets. Each of the last three years has been in the top five in targets. His catch percentage really hiding two years ago it was seventy percent is catch percentage. Which if you if you looked at all of the players with over one hundred twenty five targets or more. There's only three or four that had a catch catch percentage of seventy or higher the only other receiver. That's it's always. Above that. As Michael Thomas. He had a catch percentage last over eighty percent. So he's just sufficient with with the Shawn Watson the Shaun Walton in the other thing that makes us top is. You can look at a lot of calories numbers last number one. He's a rookie number two. He didn't have Hopkins. So you can Kim. Maybe throw out a lot of the stuff that you looked out with column early last year. Because obviously if you add hopkins is GonNa make any quarterback better. I just think with a move like this. There's a little bit as level of uncertainty because we don't know how it's GonNa play out and look what happened in Cleveland last year. We'll talk about in a little bit. They added Odell Beckham Baker Mayfield. Entering a second season had a lot of hype and it just it didn't work out so I think there could be some volatility here. We know what to expect with him in Watson. And it's really it's really good so I think we'll say and total Do Team. Tarsha percentage over twenty eight percent last year for Deandre Hopkins. So I talked about this a little bit with Davante Adams last year I specifically talked about this with ODBC because ally manning with just you know latch onto him a lot of people say well he's ODBC or no one else would throw to similar conversation with de'andre. I mean you have people going in and out of the wide receiver to a party with three spot with obviously will fuller in his injuries. Kenny stills even Miss Games and Aqui cooties. Whatever he's he is he is. You have no tight ends. And of course he's the Andre Hopkins. So you should demand at least twenty five percent that being said you go to a whole new system like you mentioned not beat you. Just don't know what to expect. Now I think you're right. He's going to he's going to slide into probably in early second round pick. Now tell me if that's low enough for you to get excited or are you going to be just fine with that draft spot fine with it. I don't think I'd I think I think that's fine. And he'd be a player if I'm if I'm picking you know if I had the second or third pick in the second round and he falls to me. I think I think I'd be like Gimme the points because his floor is going to be incredibly slick secure. But he's not going to have a bad season in. There's the flip side of this argument. Is You could argue. If you were playing devil's advocate that that calum Murray had very comparable numbers. That is Shawn Watson. Last season their offense could be better than Houston's in Houston's was last season they have a young offense in my head coach. He's got Christian. Kirk Larry I think the Kenyan drake so they have probably the better offense and if he can pick that up early you could argue that toward. You could argue. There's more upside in Arizona. You could I think that obviously some of some of the reasons we already mentioned with the uncertainty that this this probably more red flags me for sure because the other the other end of it is bad teams. Make good wide receivers right. We see it all look at crooked and Mike Evans last year. Opb In previous years with ally manning not that you can't obviously be a tremendous wide receiver on a really good team like Allah my Thomas but you know. A good team has more players to distribute the ball around to if they can balance more balanced. There ahead of the game scripts aren't always in their favor. So you know I agree. I think I think in the early second if Harry Killer tyree killer deandre Holloway. Taken him over Tyreek Hill? Know desiree kill I agree. Are you taking him over? Julio Yeah I'm just now have to go back and look at WHO. He was numbers again. I'm going to take them in front of Leo and and you know who I'm going to be a much higher on this year than everyone else which might not surprise you. The where has said that but Juju like I don't know where dude is going to go but to me like I'm GonNa jujubes right behind those people right behind the Hopkins who I'm jumping back on the gravy train Try TO BE SMART about it. I'm GonNa take the geysers during the points in front of him but in terms of mid to late second round this time Juju. I'm jumping back on that bandwagon. So kind of get a little off track as usual. Yeah I think I think. Best case scenario I hopkins fourth behind tyreek Hill. Devante or do we had Davante Adams tyreek Hill and Michael Thomas. I think I'd have him fourth best. Best case scenario all right Third won't spend too much time on this forever. You know I have third loses. Philip rivers loses rivers in. Who knows where the quarterback is? It's either GonNa probably a tyrod Taylor which is sexy. One of the free agent core acts leftover like Andy Dalton Jameis Winston and. If it's it's Winston now will say but none of them. None of those options are great or they draft a rookie quarterback It won't be probably one of the two rookie quarterbacks so that's not a good so no matter who their quarterback is lining up under center. I guess I guess Winston wouldn't be too bad. He beat basically doing what Philip rivers they last year which is chuck the ball and throw picks. So yeah exactly so. They haven't made that move so they have the what six overall pick so he clearly clearly even if they signed. James Winston. They're drafting a quarterback. Got Six and this would be a Mike Lennon. Trubisky scenario this would be Daniel Jones. Eli Manning scenarios they bring anyone in. They're going to draft someone at six. That person will be maximum. Hold their job for four weeks. We've seen this happen over and over again. So what's going to end up being it's GonNa it's GonNa be. I don't know Herbert or love at six or something like that. And we'RE GONNA be talking about a young guy who is GonNa be slinging it around and both probably have ups and down Games and overall I think if you just Kinda hold go back to our conversation with Adam Feeling. I think his name is going to keep them elevated in the draft. And then that's going to make him not a great pick and definitely definitely hurt by the loss of Philip Rivers. Yeah so it's up here and I'm Kinda like I. I Really Hate Mountain Gordon. Eight hundred Hopkins Kit out somewhere in between just because it all depends on who the Winston or. I can't think of another quarterback that would go to my to my point that I'm thinking about it. Yeah winstone be great for the first two three four games but we don't trap someone in fantasy to to only play or to be successful the first four games. We know that the young quarterback would overtake Winston in a heartbeat so forth cardinals action. It's the big big. They had a lot of moves. So that makes sense Christian Kirk. Have him at four? This big boy I've cruising Kirk and one of our dynasty leagues are run together in. This is a year. I think a lot of people looked at as a you know a big coming out party for Christian Kirk entering. Its third season he. He had a disappointing year last year. I mean he increases is yardage by twenty percent yet like fifteen more catches still only only six touchdowns total the first two seasons. But the but the offense struggled in general older quarterback about this year. You know I looked at as an owner. Efficient Kurkin dynasty is a year where you can be the number one second year of college. Murray and then hopkins goes there and Christian Kirk is volume guy? His fantasy value is dependent on volume. If you look at let's last year. One hundred seven targets and thirteen games was on pace for one hundred thirty one targets which would have placed him fifteenth in the NFL among wide receivers. It's hard to imagine Christian Kirk getting type of volume with Deandre Hopkins given the fact that we know he's not GonNa he's GonNa be is touchdown pretending to capitalise six touchdowns total in his first two seasons. Three each of the first two years he's going to need is GonNa need the volume. Yeah I don't think he's GonNa get it and it doesn't mean that he's not going to be a good bargain bargain guy. His eighty P will will follow a little bit so maybe you can get him at a bargain. I just think he's now instead of a breakout third year wide receiver. I think you look at him as more of a role player. A A week to week flex option. a good wide receiver. Handcuff that we always talk about with our Ben Strategy. I think that's how you have to kind of Christian Kirk now. He's his is upside is going to be the minister as long as Hopkins. Tell me to surprise you but I completely disagree. Does China surprise me? Actually tell me more. Tell me more well. I think that you're you're looking too much into hold on a second. I get this. Espn add popping up on me and going into the Mike I think that we're over analyzing or try. Say homey backtrack. I think we're we're doing. We're we're projecting out the ripple effect that the Hopkins asked the offense and some of these things could be true. But what about the offense is getting a ton better like? The offense struggled several games for like two three quarters. What about the score more points? I mean Christian Kirk had three touchdowns last year and thirteen games so he missed a game. So people are GonNa be looking at this. Oh you've got sixty eight balls that some of the savvy. People always going to factor that he mystery games. He had a very short. You know yard yards per catch right. Only ten he can easily get that to twelve thirteen fourteen. That wouldn't be a stretch for someone like him so his yards could easily go by just having a better average. Because he's not. Down the line of scrimmage as much I can. He could catch more touchdowns the overall team to be a lot better. He could be more involved with where Arizona could stop being like. Okay here's our one two punch versus like here's four or five receivers are spreading the ball. I I think that there are several teams that can support to wide receivers in this could easily be one of them off off air points. I think we've Christian Kurt and it depends on what you what your expectations were for Christian Kirk. Before I thought he'd be. I thought he was a prime talent because he had a couple of monster games last season including the one in Tampa. I just think that I think he got a solid season. I think he could be a good fantasy contributor. I just don't think with the even if all true. The offense gives a lot better. I don't think Chris only it's in the cards. That Christian Kirk is going to be a top ten fantasy receiver. I thought there was a slight chance prior to the trade that he could get into that conversation. Yeah I think that when you look at what the type of wide receiver Christian Kirk is granted. They had a rookie wide even rookie system. You know I don't know if he's that type of wide receiver that's ever going to be a hopkins or and I'm not saying you're saying he is the one part. I do agree with that. Maybe his third year breakout year is probably GonNa be very very much capped. Absolutely I agree with that but I think when you look at the type of player that he is in more of that in the middle kind of guy. I think we've seen a lot of successful wide receiver twos you know. Have Free Range in the middle because they're outside wide? Receiver IS GETTING DOUBLED. You know Juju. During Antonio Brown's Year I still think there's easy seventy five catches here easy. Seventy five catches. And if we'RE GONNA if I'M GONNA get him on a discount. The sixty yards sixty eight catches missing three games three touchdown discount the under hopkins coming in discount. Signed me up and I think both can probably be true. I think if you depending on where able to get him he could be a good. It could be a guy that I saw a lot of shares of still I. I think it's hard to look at just Christian Kirk. It's got a separate. I mean some of the time sometimes. We'll use the ADP as part of the argument like in some cases the AP it's it's part of the part of it but you can also separate them to an extent and say both two things at once. It can be a good discount. You know a good bargain player if play you can get at a pretty solid draft draft value but also his stock definitely takes a hit with with Hopkins and I think it all comes down to upside because I don't think he has the same upside. But I I do think he can have seventy five catches nine hundred yards for five touchdowns maybe i. I still think he's going to struggle touchdowns because you know getting into the red zone was Nisha Last year is converting. Anna Hopkins is going to be a big red zone target than you have Kenyan drake. I just don't think there's going to be much leftover so I don't think touch I was going to be huge with him but he had three right. We're not I'm not. Even he didn't even have five or six so he he could easily double you know. I don't know how many touchdowns calorie through commerce and easily increases passing touchdowns and again like like sixty eight seven. Zero nine is not hard to replicate on a good offense even if you have hopkins. So it'll be oh. Of course a matter of how they use him but he's going to be declared cut number two they still don't have a tight end so and it's sounds like just from initial reaction just hearing you talk when you were kind of breaking it down if a lot more people are on that train of all of these other things are going to prevent his upside. Which is is I think true. The upside is definitely capped. Then I'm going to be buying a discount. I'm going to be going okay. Well let me let me get my tight end here knowing that I can go and grab most likely a very solid. I don't know flex player in in Christian Kirk round seven versus trying to pay it for someone I don't know I'm just. I spit whatever upsetting would not to Belabor the point. He was on pace for eighty three catches last season. He played full sixteen four sixteen games and I think before the trade you could. You could realistically look Christian Carcass. Somebody that could have a breakout year and get one hundred catches it. That's not happening with with no. I wouldn't rule it out. Could be completely honest. Offense likes spread around so that that would lead me towards one of the reasons. Why also a little skeptical on on Hopkins is because they spread around his team. Targeted percentages at nineteen percent. Okay nine thousand nine percent now. That is granted. It's missing three games. Guess what that. Same percentage still doable with Hopkins. That same percentage. I've looked I've done a lot of research last year. I did my whole stat projections based on. What a team's how they funnel their percentage is it too tight ends to the number one. The number one gets twenty. Five percent was the second person get if a first person getting twenty five to twenty eight percent. You could still get another person at the high teens. If they if they demanded that happened with Juju Antonio Brown this is a little bit of a different level here but my point is that nineteen percent is still Nico reproduce that. Yeah we'll see we'll see. We'll have a heated Christian Kirk debates in the next few months. Yeah just a top of everyone's list of excitement airy hopefully we can pick out a couple of more exciting players debate but I think that those are the type of that can really make or break the death of your team too and we're talking about Rosser construction so early on. I'm definitely getting excited. Talk more about Christian Kirk if his values where it sounds like it might be. I might be in early buyer. And he's definitely one of those players that could get lost because you have some somebody like deandre Hopkins who's WHO's You know he's the Andrea Hopkins. And then you have some of the Christian Kirksey get forgotten so we'll see what happens. Adp Bhai Yeah. That's that could be a value at the end. It's all about value. So we'll see what happens. V I have I think this is one of your GonNa Agree with me on Austin. Who because we talked right after the signing went down awesome? Hooper have fifth signed with the Cleveland Browns. Now a lot of people think that this year will be the year like everybody was on the hype train for Cleveland. Last year didn't work out a complete disaster. A lot of people are saying this is the year it's GonNa work You know people were on a year too early. I think that could be true. I like Austin who has a prospect? He's still only twenty. He's twenty six years old. Entering his prime at back-back really really solid seasons. Last year was his best season in only thirteen games. Seventy five catches seven hundred. Eighty seven yards six touchdowns. As why? Like Austin. Hooper and I think he can have a really good. I think he's a top five tight end still but I just again saving the Hopkins whenever a player switches uniforms and asked to learn a new system. A new quarterback there's a level of uncertainty in given the dysfunction that we saw in Cleveland last season. I don't think that we can immediately. Just just you know Pencil in Austin who has a top three tight end. I think I'd like Arts and Travis Kelsey android killer them all more than hooper I think at before this trade I would have liked off hooper second only to Travis Kelsey and maybe I don't know maybe even I. I think hooper had a ton of upside because the thing with Atlanta is excellent as a terrible team but they were actually fifth in total offense third in total passing yards. So they're one of those teams like like you said with bad teams. Make Four for sears. There's a lot of stuff to go around. Because their their defense was really bad. Their team was really bad and Matt Ryan. Still Good quarterback. He's still a very good stable core back when it comes down to Allowing all of his weapons to be to have some fancy relevance to be productive like Julio got his Calverley got his awesome. Hooper got here so I mean they don't. They're a disaster when it comes to their running back usage by the receivers and Tynan's all got theirs and I think if you were a running back in Austin. Hooper was to be on on land next year. I would have loved that situation. I think people read too much into real life. Nfl and just like the sex appeal. That comes from going to a team. That already has nick job. Odell Beckham Jarvis Landry Baker Mayfield. I think he has a potential to be good but I don't even know if he's going to be able to repeat what he did last season much less build on those numbers. Yeah was his numbers again. From last season two. Seventy Five. Seventy five seventy seven six touchdowns in thirteen games on us on. He's on pace to barely eclipse Zacharias. Did Zakar a beast? I'm going to be all on Zacharias. Yeah now the great thing to the must pass so much in Atlanta. I'm pulling out these numbers by the way from LINEUPS DOT com. Check them out for all your fantasy research sports research. Nfl Talking Heads lineups network podcasts. Fourteen point two team targets. Here percentage was awesome hooper which surprisingly low though. He did mystery games but still he had just so much volume in those games and in the efficiency was really high there too though so his catch percentage was seventy-seven percent. I mean the guy was at least on the surface. I completely agree on everything he said. I'm just so tired of the browns and and you know everyone's going to jump back on this this. This war wasn't last year. It's going to be this year. I don't know how many more weapons is does Baker Mayfield need and they're going to run the ball a lot. More knickknack Chubb ran for two hundred ran to one hundred ninety eight times with cream hunt playing half a season for them. So they're they're they're they're still going to be a ground. They WANNA be a ground and pound team. Missile votto Beckham Jarvis and Baker Mayfield and a lot of volatility with Cleveland. Even if things go according to plan I mean I I. I don't know who did last year. I feel like I asked this every year. But who? Who'S THE CLEVELAND? Browns head coach comes fancy. Vikings that ran the ball into the ground. Okay Yeah I think they have a lot of weapons. Frost and Hooper. He's it did seem like a try to utilize your tight in a little bit. I had to do a little bit of research into how their overall team try to throw the ball to the tight end which you know as we mentioned with the whole Rob Gronkowski swapping Tom Brady. Go into tight end. You know. Sometimes you just need a good tight end the one that you're on the top madden offensive. Play with right so let me look real quick here to Cleveland. And they're they're team. Target ship percentage to wildwoods the top person was four percent. Everyone combined was about six percent. So they're going to have to more than double the production too tight end just on the surface of the fourteen percent from Austin Hooper. That doesn't include efficiency among several other things. Yeah I mean. This one's thinks right from the beginning. There's too many weapons out there. There's Baker Mayfield to why can't trust so I'm completely in agreement with you now. I think maybe most people will agree with you. That you've got the top three and with this news you know. Maybe people even had hooper before the other three just because of the names with this news. He's might be the solidified number. What four year is is. I would rather have Kennel urging calcium. I I don't I I think he's probably forged because his upside I mean take was right behind them. Throw me some names were also. I definitely definitely take him over hundred Henry. I think the next three eat at Evan Ingram. Oj Howard so he's he's he's he's probably not to get Darren Waller. I think I think he's right right above a hair above. Darren Waller Evan Ingram and Jay Howard but I think that now you can put him basically in that group as like probably the best of that group. But he's about to tell him. I never had in. Is Evan Ingram? You'd have whoever yep that's I would go hooper but I think it's close against now it's close. Yeah I'm before straight I've seen it I just. I Love Hooper like you said if he was still Atlanta did an argument for him to be. You know number two. I'M NOT GONNA put a more Kelsey but I liked him a law going into last season member. He was one of our Saint Player. Rounds that we used with Jared Cook. I think the way the best way to describe as if you had off hooper in like as keeper or in like a dynasty league in this trait happened that you're not feeling good about it. You're not happy you are not like you weren't you weren't pump that he's going to designing with Cleveland like useless. Let's let's run it back. Why shake it up? It doesn't we don't we. Don't care how Atlanta is in real life as a football team. We don't care about the Defense Matt. Ryan is is a good solid quarterback if you own one of his receivers tied ends You just you don't Abbas points change. It was his fourth year last season. He had a breakout season heading into fifth years. Twenty six years old is in his prime. Just don't you know if it isn't broke? Don't fix it. I wouldn't WANNA yeah. We don't shake I don't know where Baker Mayfield's projection where his ADP's. I'll tell you right now off like I could just tell they got the new left tackle and J Conklin and they got every single piece. You could imagine if this guy doesn't have a all pro season. He's going to be James. He's going to be Jameis Winston. It's not gonna be that bad I just if there's a lot of pressure on on on Baker though has really bad and they missed the playoffs and he ended partly because of him. He's he's like at the very least a year away from being Jameis Winston. Yeah percents completely. Throwing himself out of Lee Jameis Winston came. Get a starting Charlie. James Winstons me a backup this year. This stuff moves fast right like like. Sometimes I complain about these. These coaches starting quarterbacks for too long like Jacksonville with Blake Bortles. Tennessee did the same thing with with Marietta. I mean just held on for way too long but in some in some other instances it's starter one day and then they're not the next kind of like Winston kind of. Yeah I mean. Obviously it'll keep job pass this year but I think if this goes really bad. The conversations going to turn from the baker still a great a great court of really good quarterback prospect to. We're going to start him because we're stuck with him but we don't believe in him anymore. Similar I mean the. The buccaneers hadn't believed in Winston for a years. They just kept him a year probably longer than they should have because they didn't have any other options. So that's going to wrap up our five players that loss in free agency for Fantasy and the twenty twenty free agency. Everyone thanks for listening. We're the NFL TALKING.

Dragon Slayers, Hype Train, Fantasy Q&A

"This is Melvyn, Gordon from the Los Angeles chargers, and you listening to fantasy footballers podcast. Welcome to the fantasy footballers podcast coming to you from pristine auction dot com studios with your hose. Andy Holloway, Jason Moore and Mike. Right. Oil cO, man. Welcome in once again, Monday, according to show Monday just why Mike isn't here. Because my mic is having some trouble Mike lives at the airport now. Yeah. We fully expected to have the hitman back in action. Today's just Jason and myself again. And of course, Jay griz. But who's always willing to fill in. And I gotta give him credit for that considering, but Mike was supposed to be here several days ago. But unfortunately him in American Airlines are having some, you know, either having words I didn't put this together. But apparently, so Mike he had his plan canceled twice two different planes cancelled. He's extremely Emily strong indication and his family there at the airport, and I did not yet put together both times the equipment malfunction and the planes were called in. They said by a bear, and I did not yet. Put those two, I did not really think about the fact that this is probably just Jaeger as well. The thing is I understand Jaeger is wanting to keep the role in makes sense. You know, of course, it's very wonderful job. And he does it. Well, but why make Mike with his family of five sit on an airplane on the tarmac for ninety minutes then Deeb? Board waiting an airport for seven hours, and then get sent home to get into a hotel and then be compensated with nothing. Look, you had fish seems over the top rude, just don't cross shakers did. But, but we do have a great show for you today. It's going to be a fun one. We've got a great quick question. I'm gonna quiz. Jason on on the quick question a little bit. We've got some mail bag on the show today at ton of hype train. We'll get your fantasy football team. Ready to go? Get it right. We'll be in Chicago. All of us will be in Chicago on Friday for the first live show and the people's fantasy tour which I'm sure you're very excited about Jason. I am super super excited about if you're in Chicago, you've been waiting to get your tickets, they're going to go soon. So go to ballers live dot com. We'll see you on Friday. Yeah. That'll be a lot of fun. You're going to do anymore jumping off the stage. So I what Indies referring to. I believe it was the New York show, where I decided to. Leap in the beginning before the show you were very you're very hype. The hype train was was real. The music was playing and I leaped before I looked as the phrase goes, and I fell before I landed. Yes, and I'm promise everybody out there. I will be leaping again there. My god. There is no fear, regardless of how high, the stage is no, I will do a show with a tornado. And then I'll go to the hospital just to kind of relate to your dynasty. Running back. Oh. Don't don't be smart girly here. Let's move on. All right. Quick question. For today's episode comes from Hayden in Texas Hayden writes, in, it's a good question says, hey ballers, huge fan of the show. What is your opinion on drafting? Both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin this year. And are there any other receiver stacks that you would consider does it change? If you've got three wide receivers to start Jason. You're squirming in your chair over there with the nobody see me. Yeah. I think everybody could see you on YouTube. No, no off-screen thaw. I'm sorry. Jason was trying to get his monitor headphones working, and I don't know what was happening would have like an exercise would have been funny. But so, what's, what are you quizzing me here? Well, I I let's say answer that one would you ever want to draft? Both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. You're looking at a wide receiver stack situation. Yeah. I mean there is a situation where I would want that I don't I don't seek that out though. Like I don't prefer that if I took Mike Evans. And I'm on the I'm in the draft at a place where Chris God. When is going near other good quality guys? I've got ranked the same I'm going to, I'm going to pivot, I'm not going to try to do the double or, you know, sometimes people view that as having the handcuff of either go down there, other gets better. I'm going to try to spread it out. But probably not gonna use a first and fifth round pick to try to hang of a wide receiver, right? But, you know, on the flip side, though, if Godwin started falling where. I feel like he is more valuable than the other wide receivers around there. I would. Absolutely. I'm not against having to wide receivers on the same team. We have a long track record of usually on average, there's about five teams per year that produce multiple top twenty four wide receivers. So you should be able to do it. There's a number of teams that I looked through all ask you, which ones you'd be happy with but you do run the risk that, you know bad week for a team in your you know, if they're starting to I'd receivers you're in trouble and I be much more inclined to do that on a great offense. And in a league where I'm starting three wide receivers on a regular basis to mitigate some of that risk. Drama Allison in devante atoms. So yes, one hundred percent I would be willing this, because Allison's free, the cheap extra piece, I will say this though, I am. I am starting to strongly open the possibility that it could be NBS. I'm not positive. You know rewind the clock a month. And I thought it was pretty much a shoo-in for Geronimo Alison to have that number to roll established, but all the camp reports beat writers, Aaron Rodgers himself the way they're talking about Marquis. Valdez scanlon. Yeah. I mean he appears to be the number two in fact into wide receiver sets. It's been Toronto on the sideline. So what about kind of some of these maybe more middling situations? Allen Robinson Anthony Miller. No. I Don Jackson alshon Jeffery. No feeling and digs. That's one that you're yeah, you're going to smile about. I would be fine with both deland digs. Any two of the Rams. Woods cooks. Cooks Cup Cup woods yet. Gimme any Cup of cook. What about what if you're into three wide receiver relief and you can get all three I would play. All right. I genuinely would be fine with that Mike Williams and Keenan on. Yeah, that one's that one's a little bit rougher. I guess it's, it's somewhat similar to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. It is it seems very similar. It's very similar. So it's just a matter of the cost of Mike Williams, AJ green and Tyler boy that one I you know, I was looking at wide receiver stacks that one. So interesting to me, because I feel like I'm fine with them. But at the same time, I'm not fine with Andy Dalton, you know what I mean? So yeah, it's not like taking the shot at the Green Bay Packers. You know whether you take the shot at NBS or drama Alison, they're cheap whatever you're still taking the shot on Aaron Rodgers. Supporting multiple top in wide receivers. I'm fine with that Hopkins and fuller. Yeah. That'd be that'd be okay with Landry. OB J. No, no. I think Landry's price unless it's changed drastically in the last two weeks is too expensive for how Baker is going to spread the ball around in how Oto Beckham. We'll come manned targets. It's not when, when you're as talented as he is he's not going down in the target count, j GRIs as he's fine with Anthony Miller Taylor Gabriel. Oh, really? I've been that far doesn't doesn't mind it whatsoever. Well, follow us on Twitter at the F F ballers on Instagram, Instagram dot com slash fantasy footballers, and you can follow each of us individually Mike, who is not here is at f- f hitman on both Instagram and Twitter. Jason is at J sniff NFL. I'm Andy Holloway. The websites, the fantasy football is dot com, and I do want to take just a second to. Proclaim the greatness of our writing staff because they have put out so many high quality articles dishonest season. So I really encourage you to go to the website, read some of their work. There's a number of articles, I love the path to a wide receiver one articles that have been coming out this off season, making the case for a number of the, you know, the Godwin Mike Williams type is there. What are the odds of a Robbie Anderson becoming a wide receiver one? Sammy Watkins Sammy Watkins. Sure. Oh man. You and I had it out on Sammy Watkins, we have had it public domain. We went to the town square on the show. Twitter off the show. We just keep going back and forth on Twitter, most recently until I found out. He believes his lizard person. I might be I might be off of the Sammy Watkins strain. So all the statistic arguments assigned like those you are willing to dismiss. Yup. We can frame them. However, we want. Yeah, but the lizard person thing little different. Yeah, the lizard person. That's, that's a hard Bill. Brooks. Brooks. I'm is over there saying, like do people know what you're talking about people don't I didn't want to explain that Brooks. I mean you're aware, right? Go ahead. Jason. Sammy Watkins believes he's means he's an apologist. He believes he's lizard, person, too lizard, person the whole story, but he's not human, and it's not a joke that's a joke. So you might be fading and due to reptilian problem due to, you know, I've been worried. So it's cold blooded Jason. Oh, I've been worried about, you know, like injuries below the shoulders. But I you know, listen to me like all the way down to the feet, but I think maybe I've been looking at the wrong, it's above the shore. Give me some issues a reminder had to alternate draft kid dot com, if you want to get the absolute best tool for your upcoming drafts updated off season in one dollar of ever UD case sold goes directly to Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital there also our partner on, tour, the VIP ticket sales, and all of the sales to the Phoenix live show.

We have the opportunity to be a part of and contribute to their goals of ending childhood cancer. And so support them. Let's get into the news. News and notes from around the league presented by sleeper. All right. We have some news and then we have some hype in, so we'll talk about both those. We'll talk a little bit about how much you is a fantasy owner should read into the hype because it's fun. I'm. Oh, yeah. I've said I say it every year, the all the hype for my players on my dynasty team. Oh, it's I love it. It's the best. All right. Here's some news from ESPN Chris Herndon facing the likelihood of a two game suspension. Chris earned any I would say a surprise surprisingly productive tied in his rookie season last year. Some startling games sorta games in a, a report built with Sam darnold. Yeah. He he's showed out very well. I would say him and Mark Andrews were last year's rookies that really, you know, rookie tight ends don't do much. You've gotta look for specific flashes, and both of those players showed it, but Chris Herndon isn't a player that you're going to be drafting now especially if he's facing a two game suspension. So to bring this up in the ultimate draft kit. We do currently have Chris Herndon as a sleeper tied in with a two game suspension. Do you change your outlook on? That is he somebody that you will be petitioning Mike. Can either remove from the sleeper category because of the two game suspension? Yeah. I mean, I don't want to encourage anyone out there to draft someone who could be something when he's already spent time hurting a roster. I think it's a waste of a pick a I don't usually recommend unless you're in some kind of tied in premium even drafting multiple tight ends. I think that's usually a waste of a roster spot. Certainly not somebody you're gonna draft in hold. Right. I don't want to draft it. Hold him. So yes, I will be petitioning to remove him. Okay. All right. I'm sure you know, Grizzle want Burton, to take his place or something. The saints have signed wide receiver is for shar Matthews. Mediocre signing of the week. I gotta be honest with you. How dare you? Yeah. I was gonna say, I don't even feel good calling in mediocre, and I feel like you're not giving him his do. Well Rashard Matthews. We were talking a little bit before the show. Had had some productive seasons in Tennessee back to back eight hundred yards seasons. No look, I mean we not true seven hundred ninety five yards in twenty seven hundred today. Fair enough. Here's a truth retard. Matthews say whatever you want about him. Andy, you'd know. Well, if he's a good wide receiver anymore anymore. Okay. I believe he is a good wide receiver. He's probably going to be irrelevant. Even on the saints because he's going to be at best third in the pecking order. But it is at least interesting when a guy who is believe he's still twenty nine. He has proven that he can succeed a little bit in the NFL. And then he goes to drew Brees. You know, if you're in a deep dynasty league and you've got, let's say you've got a team like our producer, Al Borland from the spit ballers podcast. Right. Just a dumpster pile dumpster. The fire is the word. I was looking for a team pile of dumpsters. Yeah. And then I would drop any number of one of your players for chard math. Oh, wow. I will bet you right now, right here on the show that he doesn't make the team you wanna take that waterbed. Mr. Rishard Matthews. I mean you must you must you just said to pick them up. Waterbed house, Cam meredith's health. I love the fact that you thought he might be the three at another three to it. Maybe he's the six. We'll see many camp notes, some hype train news. Dante heads turning heads at forty Niners minicamps, Dante's body as maturing said the most handsome Jimmy Garoppolo. Coming out of breaks with power has speed. He's great. I mean, we said this for the last, you know, I was beating the drum for Pettus last year was big believer this off season. Andy you watched some more film, fell in love. And then you went out and traded you put your money where your mouth was dynasty league dynasty pickup traded for him and breakout candidate for our ultimate draft kit. Certainly is however, one of the problems with Pettus, if you look on film him coming out, he's, he's six foot one played. Pretty felt I mean he's one hundred and eighty one pounds or something when he came out. So I liked the fact that he's putting on a little bit of weight. He's an explosive player. He was a special teams dominator in college. But on the field. I mean he's the defacto number one on that team. And I insist I've been insistent off season. Look, you bring in deebo, Samuel, and Jalen Hurd in these other peripheral wide receiver just Mark is Markey's. Goodwin is still there. But none of. Those players are going to do a Dante Pettis dozen this offense. I think he can catch eighty pounds. I don't want to speak too much because we're, we're gonna be talking more about Dante Pettis here in a short while, but I watched some interviews with him. He was talking about how the playbook Shanahan's playbook is a lot. And he said, coming out of college, like he every play when he'd get to the line, he was just so in his head trying to figure out what to do where the defense is that what the play call was all of that stuff that he, he was, this was all based on a question of how how's Jimmy Garoppolo been this year compared to last year? And he said, honestly, I it wasn't a joke. He says, I don't remember how Garoppolo was last year. I couldn't concentrate. And, but my point in saying that is, that's where deebo Samuel. Jalen Hurd, are going to be this year. They're rookies they're not gonna come in and just steal the show from Dante Pettis. Dante Pettis has a huge leg up while I don't like that the Niners look that tried to go. Oh, Beckham they tried to go after Antonio Brown. They did draft wide receiver. So their confidence in their actions hasn't been completely. Poured independece, but he's great. And he has the opportunity, and I fully believe he's going to succeed gray draft capital early second round pick. And, and flashed on film to me there. You know of all the players in the NFL, if you had to say, okay, pick five players to be the next big thing. He's in that category for me. He's got category for me as well. And in addition, so you, you talked about how good he was on special teams. That's understated like he's maybe the best special teams player in NCWA history. When it comes to return touchdowns and things like that didn't do much as a rookie in limited opportunity. But they came out this year and said they're going to give him another chance to win that job as a special teams return if he ends up, adding a couple touchdowns in that department through that department. The way the Antonio Brown has tyreek hill did deal with a niece brain to separate occasions. Miss three weeks and miss two weeks based. On the injuries on my now want him on special teams. But he's an explosive player. So do you buy the hype? I guess we just said we did based on that. How about this one? The athletic is reporting ravens tight end Mark Andrews looks bigger stronger faster than last season. Mark Andrews was the most impressive of the rookie tight ends. Hayden Hearst dealt with injuries. It seemed Lamar Jackson didn't seem like he could throw the ball very consistently at all. But if there was a player he could connect with it was Mark Andrews last season, another player, I picked up on purpose and dynasty this off season. A big old target. Do you believe in Mark Andrews as the best of the tightening options in Baltimore? Yeah. Definitely. I mean if you go scroll back through your podcast app to our splaine yourself episode. I do explain why was I was high on Mark Andrews back then nothing has changed. Great Gerald Everett. The Rams biggest surprise this off season. I do not buy it. I do not care. I think Gerald ever is a good titan in a system. That is. To focus on their three main wide receivers. Gerald Everett will be fine. Maybe you can stream them in the right matchup. But irrelevant if one of those big three goes down again like we saw last year. Maybe you look his way a little bit. I will stream him more often. New York Jets, GM Joe Douglas calls. Robbie Anderson is very pleasant surprise. I think that is just based on watching some film. It was which you really should have done probably already. Well. I mean he that guy just got the job, obviously, so he's going back and watch it to know who was players are. And he was surprised. He saw what we've talked about. He gets passed the defense. He he he's a good player. He is a good player. How about this one? A lot of hype around the Arizona Cardinals offense cliff Kingsbury car. The Murray they were the worst in the league by far last year. Only fourteen points a game. Albert breer talking about Christian Kirk being the most impressive receiver on the roster. The best receiver on the roster during offseason program. We know the Kristen Kirk an Kyla Murray already have a leg up on the rest of the competition in Arizona having played in system, similar to cliff Kingsbury and play together. I mean, people don't remember this Christian Kirk column played together a Texan Texas ain't infra season. Do you buy any hyper on Christian kirksey somebody that is in that sneaky, undervalued category? Or is it kind of hands off because of how bad the offense was last year? So I talked about this on, I was on a podcast with Pat Fitz Morris, and he he asked this question. And I, I do buy the hype that if an Arizona wide receiver is to establish themselves as a fancy dominator I think it will be Christian Kirk because of all the reasons laid out. But I also think a rookie wide receiver coming in as much as I love Cuyler Murray. It's going to be very, very impractical to think he throws over four thousand yards. You divide that up by? You've got David Johnson, a great pass catching option. Larry FitzGerald and then all of the smartest of rookies coming, and he's Abella Kim Butler, so I don't necessarily buy the hype of Christian Kirk, you know, if someone's going to do it will be him, but I think that the ball's gonna be spread around and I don't I'm not in love with his draft cost right now. All right. Once pop can't. Stop Byrom Pringle, more hype on fire in Pringle. The most surprising offseason standout in Kansas City Chiefs camp. And if I hadn't said, Kansas City Chiefs camp, right there. I don't think you knew or would know who I was talking about. But Byron Pringle actually flash last preseason for Kansas City, they could be without tyreek hill. Michael Hartmann is not established in the offense to Marcus Robinson had is probably what he is at this point. Is there any reason to pay attention? In a dynasty league, the Byron Pringle. Yes, there's Pat. Oh, oh, that's reason enough to pay attention. I mean right now. I'd see look Byron Pringle, he's he's original. Maybe soon he could be sour cream and onion, because we're gonna want this hour, cream and onion version. Byron Pringle over Rashard Matthews on your dynasty ads. Yes. Okay. Yeah. Otherwise, this was interesting. We can talk about it for a second before we get into the mail bag. Out of New Jersey New Jersey dot com reporting, it's premature to expect mile Sanders to become the eagles, number one back. It's premature he's not on the field at all. You pretty her. I would agree with that. And then there's some news out of Boston out of the Boston Globe, Mikhail Harry didn't have the best minicamp. Yeah. Pretty hard to have a good many campus. A rookie in New England. Certainly, it's a very difficult system. I it's also ironic because I feel like a couple of weeks ago. People were saying he was doing really good in mini. Yes. So I don't know. But the one did did you mention JJ or Sega Whiteside because Dan, gopher dead that has been such a common thing this off season from the whole the whole program rookie minicamp? OTA's JJ Sega Whiteside has a report already especially in the red zone from what the beat writers are saying with Carson Wentz. So there's two things one I don't I don't love rookie wide receivers. I don't like the draft them but in dynasty, and how you view his outlook. I really liked that going forward and more. So for what he's going to provide as another legit red zone weapon for Carson Wentz. I am. I'm really excited to see how many specifically the touchdown numbers for Carson Wentz. It seems ta was he? This is why I love Carson win. Got got it. You got urge you got our single Whiteside, alshon? Yeah. Janney decks. Yeah. Winces winces looking mighty fine, and he just got paid. All right.

Visit the website the fantasy football dot com. Click the submit a question button or dollar voicemail hotline three zero two four six four. T F, F B. We're gonna get into some voicemail questions, a variety of questions that came in off of YouTube, and Instagram and Twitter and the Email. So let's go ahead and kick it off with the voicemail. Hey ballers does this cow. From Los Angeles, California. Who do you think is the more valuable handcuffed target, Daryl Henderson, or the tables Murray? Thanks guys. Love the show. I'll let you answer Jay. I'll set the table a little bit. I mean latavius Murray is the handcuff for Alvin Kamara. He's more than a handcuff. He's going to be a rotational player in a saints offense and running game that historically scores though. Most rushing touchdowns in the league every right. And, you know, if you're talking, who's the more valuable handcuff, and you're only speaking of it in terms of the you've got the other player, then, then it's got to be Daryl Henderson. He's in the even better offense and Todd Gurley has the issue in front of him. But I, I lead with that only to say that I would not be taking Daryl Henderson any league over the tavis Murray and what's crazy is independent of handcuff independent of what if you have girly and you you're in the six round and you can take latavius Murray or Darrell Henderson? You're taking hinder. Yes, if I have to handcuff girly, but I'm not taking someone else's handcuff if someone else has girl. I'm taking latavius Murray because I think Murray is going to be a normal weekly player that you can put in your flex putting your running back spot. If you need to, and you're going to get production. I don't think that happens from Daryl Henderson without a massive. Because here's here's the truth. Henderson today, Hickerson shipping. So can now come Brown and that's what I wanted to bring up the fact that if girly goes down. It's not a guarantee that it's there Henderson. I think it is the capital that was invested in them is. But we think that all the time, especially in Alfred blue takes the field. Exactly. You're one hundred percent right. We want the sexy player but the teams like the reliable player, they trust Malcolm Brown and pass and things like that. Do you know who I loved loved last year going into the draft who John Kelly great run? Yeah. You did the Rams loved him. They took him with their pick. And then when girly went down. They went off the street and got C J Anderson because they didn't like him. He didn't. He didn't catch onto that. System. Malcolm Brown was injured. Malcolm Brown knows the system frost aspects xactly. All right. Here's an interesting question. Very important question came in on Instagram Brooks felt found it to be an important one for the show. So look, I throw them a bone every once in a while. You're stuck in a dungeon guarded by a dragon classic situation. Been there and you have to draft one player to help you get out of the dungeon who is your pick the sisters like the easiest question. I've ever heard. It's so clear. I mean everybody out there's the everybody knows it. I mean you know it. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah, what's his name again? It clearly has to be Ryan Fitzpatrick to get you out of the look, you could go like the Kelsey style, right? Like the tramps kills you. The kills lawyer kills he's not beaten up that drag it, he's gonna get eaten like anybody else. I think like I'm not going. Bruce strikes. I'm going mine. I'm going to Harvard grad, I'm going second-highest Wunderlich of all time, fastest Wunderlich score of all time. And he's got the beard that says I've been in the dungeon before I I've played dungeons and dragons. He for a guy that smarty through a lot of interceptions. He's that smart and throw one or two footballs. Ed dragon before he takes. You gotta tell you when to run. And I hope he's right. 'cause I don't want to be his interception. Oh my gosh. I want to be in there with Rosen, but only to, you know, so as he's the bait, yes, you can. You don't run him grab him. And then you go. All right. Can each work? Yeah, I'll talk about the first ground pedigree with the dragon. He'll he'll be very interested. Let's jump in another voicemail question. Football Tanner from Wisconsin. Most of my league majority are big Packers fans Homer teams affect draft capital of certain players should you draft differently knowing that they'll have different trade value, for example, like Aaron Jones, do you guys ever draft with that in mind? I mean, oh, thanks to the by. Well, it's kind of to several questions. Yes, it absolutely. One hundred percent effects the draft placement hundred percent. But I don't necessarily draft players to trade them. No. So the only way that I would do that, right? Like, let's say you're, you know, we're in Arizona. Let's say have VAR league are cardinals fans and they are overvaluing David Johnson, or Chris, Kirk or Cuyler Murray, whatever that means I'm not going to get any of those players, like if I'm in a league where, you know, everybody loves a certain team. I'm not going to overpay because you're not gonna overpay for trade value. Right. Well, certainly not for trade value, but where I would do it for trade value is when you're in a league where there's that guy and he loves that one team. And he always say, like the chargers, bright, somebody loves loves the chargers. Right. And he's already drafted a couple and in at at a good value because he can't you know he's not half the league. He's not inflating everyone at a good value charger drops there. And you know what you can get from then guy. I've, I've been in a situation where when I'm using that as a tiebreaker, and I'm like this guy's good value here, I could probably flip him for something crazy from him later on. That's where I might consider it, sometimes people when we're being interviewed, they ask us, like some general fantasy football questions and they say, what are some of the biggest mistakes that people make if you're a brand new fantasy player or what are some simple things you can do to improve as a new player in one of the co twos is always, please. Don't favor your home team to some excessive degree that makes you, you know, I see people end up with three players from the from their home team. Even if you're going to overpay for goodness sakes, please do at one time. Right, please just get you'll love Carson Winston you overpay for him. Sure. Please don't go into your season with like wins. Erz Goddard, indeed Jackson, and four of eight players are starting from I mean you can write. But at fundamentally of that's most fun if losing is the most fun thing to you, if you want to do that, just do it in league. With other clan members so they can win. Please YouTube question. This one comes in from Nick, what is the proper amount of time per pick for a twelve man draft? So it's a little different, obviously, between I am an assume this question is offline draft because if it's an online draft the software is going to tell you and I don't care. I mean making a minute I mean I don't know. I mean that that's probably the question the software lets you pick two three four five minutes. I would say two minutes would be fair for that. But in a in an offline league I like giving people time three minutes is like a timer without a hard cap where, you know, when that happens find a way to shame as a league find a way to shame the person who has not yet made their pick. But the, you know, you want trades to happen, you want interaction, you want talking between owners during the draft. I love that stuff. I couldn't agree more. I actually would go so far as to recommend that you all do offline drafts regardless. Yes, you know, there are situations, if everybody's remote if you can't do it locally that type of stuff sure you don't do it offline but Jaffa is our Christmas. Why would you want Christmas three over sooner have a little fun with it? Give yourself some margin at your draft. If you wanna pause because everybody because the food, just arrived, if you want to get people extra time, generally, they're not gonna take advantage of it. I'm one hundred percent on board with that. I agree completely so. And if not, if you're going to set it online, I mean, I don't know. I hate having super fast time limits for the first couple rounds not fun. Yeah. All right. Jason, your once again, just I'm a call yet, every time you're wiggling over there. All. Then I'll start doing when I'm on screen. I get. Oh, did Brooks. Did you guys coordinate that wiggle again? I'm protecting you as much as I can. I appreciate it. I'm telling you down the river. It's distracting. It's just me and the bear and the bear doesn't move. And if you're moving that much I will try, I will do my best to not distract. You. Okay, oxen draft read your question. Ricky in Utah wants to know you. I'm scared. You guys typically talk about snake drafts. I'm wondering your guy's thoughts on an auction draft. Would you ever do an auction draft wire wind night, look auction drafts are great? They're very fun. The wise to do an auction drafter are that everyone gets a chance. Right. If you love a player like I love carry on Johnson. Let it be known. I had no idea. I know I don't have any I don't have any stock in him in any event love in any of our main leagues. He's a keeper or it's a dynasty or whatnot. But I want a chance at getting him. And there's certain players like that. Where depending on where you fall in your draft room, you're either going to have to crazy overdraft, or you're just not going to get a chance to, to get the players you want. So it's also something that is I think more advantageous for the experienced player. They know every player a little bit better. So, you know, everyone is partic-. Painting on every pick, you're not waiting. When you're on the turn for thirty minutes to pass by so that you can have a moment of strategy again, you're doing it the whole time. So this great the downside to auction is going to take a lot longer and in-person auction is intense. It's going to require that knowledge. Very tough to be a Commissioner in run the auction. Andrew Joan team as he's done them before I have done that once. And look, if you're wanting to start an auction league and you think you can be the auction near of an offline auction league and leave with a good team. You're wrong. No, they just had to do about you just. There is a great auction article several great auction articles on the website, the fantasy football dot com that go into more detail on auction drafts. I will say this people that are auction fans. Oh, yeah. They're pretty big auction fans. They, they love it. They believe that everybody that they know should only do auction. All right. Another voicemail question. A baller PTA from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, love the show. But I wanna know is it worth it in a dynasty lead to send two or three potential future stars for a win now type player for example, DJ more Christian curbs don't take pets for T y Mike Evans type player. Thanks guys. Hope to hear from you. Brooks. Did he say the league format? Yeah. Dynasty. Oh. Sure. You can do that. I mean that, that, that's too much specifically like that exact example I wouldn't I wouldn't send Christian Kirk Dante Pettus. And what was the other player do you remember? Well, more it wouldn't EJ more. I wouldn't trade those three players for two. I hope I could win this year. I think he was giving examples of players like that. And I will say this last season despite my love for Dante Pettis. I worked a trade that incorporated. The two main components was Dante Pettis for t y Hilton almost identical because I was in win now wanted to make a championship run did that. And all that work out for him. Ask brooks. I don't remember Brooks what who's in a champion. I don't remember either don't. Oh, it just came to me. It was you and I and the championship and I won because pet is not on your list. Don on my team. TY. Hilton was I, I think that there's absolutely you've got to go hard when you're in your championship window and the thing is, is if you win, if you get that championship, they ain't erasing it from the trophy. We all we. All right. I've tried to at your name off there for months. But you just don't wanna go overboard. You can't you, you don't want to sell the farm, where you're crippled in the future because they're still, you know, the odds are that you're not gonna win the championship just statistically speaking, and you have to be okay with that. But I would I would definitely if you're if you're a competing team halfway through the season, make move send a prospect, bolster your lineup and go after the championship. All right. This question comes in from Instagram. Nick pretzel, C sounds delicious, Nick, pretzel, writing in, not sure if he's probably, that's probably a nickname, you know, down to quarterback draft strategy questions says Buongiorno up on shore. I'll be participating in my first two quarterback league this year. I know y'all normally speak on waiting for a quarterback but does this strategic approach changed during your draft in this kind of, of a league? If so, how much does it vary? It definitely changes. Yeah. It changes a lot. Now the strategy to me doesn't really change much. You're still, I mean, if you're a tier based drafting advocate, meaning you are taking guys. Not so much like, what round you're taking them. But based on the other players in those positions, and what tier what caliber of players are left? I'm still taking the guys in the later tier of quarterbacks. I'm still looking at the value that guys like Dak Prescott represent relative to where he goes within the quarterback groups than I am looking to the value that Pat Mahomes can by you because it's a two quarterback league. I don't I mostly agree with you? It does depend on your league size. Like we're in these fantasy cares. Eliminator leagues right now where we're drafting you know seventeen people teams seventeen teams to quarterback league you have to place a premium on getting a quarterback. I mean one you have to get one quarterback in the somewhat, you know, first three or four picks at the latest because there's just not going to be enough left. I mean you're not talking about a one off position anymore. This is not the tide in quarterback argument. Sir. Certainly I mean were. How dare you, sir? You have offended. No. I mean obviously if everybody in the league drafts two quarterbacks and that's a two quarterback league way up having homes and went three in that league and reluctant five Aaron Rodgers went eight so you had three quarterbacks in the first ten picks to quarterback seventeen league it's a two quarterback seventeen team leagues. So by my incredible math. That's thirty four quarterbacks that it'd be started. You doubled it. I see what you are. Thirty two teams in the NFL. So obviously that would change strategy. But for Mr. pretzel, I believe that looking at, you know, quarterbacks look I've been in these leagues where okay with Dak pretzel, as your number one quarterback. Yes, one hundred percent. You hood a one hundred percent. If I could have it depends one hundred percent it depends more on whom I second quarterback is I mean, I would be fine if I had Dak Prescott Cuyler Murray, Philip rivers, Kirk cousins, Josh. Allen. Lamar Jackson any two of those guys. And, and when I grabbed those guys, they're all valuable quarterbacks they're going to play well, and personally, I want three quarterbacks on a two quarterback league. That means my running backs and wide receivers are much better. So that, that's my strategy and a two quarterback Louis I will certainly in the point. You're making is not like running backs become less scarce, right? Just because you have to quarterback starting, but they fall further in the draft because more people are taking early quarterback so you can actually get better running backs than in most leagues. All right. Twitter question from Yaacov Friedman? So should there be a minimum of one dollar for fab bids? There should absolutely one hundred percent never, ever ever, be a minimum of one dollar for fab bids. No, that's disgusting. Tells which really think here's why I'm so passionate about that. We talked about oftentimes people write in and say, oh, my league we have these roster caps like oh, yeah. Transaction action caps. I can only already Drake. I can only trade five times in the year I can only make five waiver pickups. And it's like what, why are you limiting you're going to fund four times this year? It's like this is pick them wisely were playing a game. And you're saying, but you only get to play a little. Monopoly, we're going to change roles where you can only buy one house in our. Yes. So it's just dumb. And the thing is that's effectively, what you're doing. When you make a minimum of one dollar for bidding. If you run out of your money, your out of transactions zero dollar fab bidding is an important part to a fun active constantly, you know alive league. Yes. That doesn't just run stale at the end of the year. I agree with you Instagram question from Rigo says what can I expect from your live show? First time going is it like a spit ballers episode where you guys just talk about random things or more of a QNA, great questions. Great question. I'll see the end of that coming. Yeah, it is it is alive podcast episode. So that'd be the first thing to mention right? There is. It's a real show. It will go live in our feed as podcast episode. Like Chicago show is Brooks. Is that Tuesday show? Yes, sir. It'll be out on Tuesday. You'll listen, if you're not in Chicago, you only gave her we only give Brooks four days to edit it, you're gonna hear the Chicago show on Tuesday. It's going to be breakouts and bust episode. We're really excited about if you are in the Chicago area, your incredibly loud laughter. Oh, it will be will be on the pot included, and your questions will be. That's one of the unique things about the live shows. We do a live mailbag at the show and it's it's a rock concert. We'll have the faces jumbo off the stay in the light show. And we'll have everything going, and then afterwards, we get to do a meet and greet, you know, we get the shake hands take deal on before and after yes, yes, so it's a lot of fun. You should come out. We've got five shows this year Chicago New York LA Phoenix, San Francisco. Bothers live dot com for tickets come. Enjoy the show. It is. We like to have fun every. Here's the thing. Is it like spitballs episode? All of these episodes are, I mean, all of our shows are kind of they're all like. Each other. They're like each other. We, we talked to each other the same way on all the shows, right? We, we actually don't change the cast. No. Well at our live shows a little bit. We might have Mike. So it'll be very different. Yeah. All right. Let's jump into another question here. David, in Minneapolis has a question for us. Jason how do you guys factor and potential injuries into your rankings? So two different ways. He wants that question. Answered injury. Plan injury prone players, like for net or I for or random injuries to random players like ACL, tears and freak injuries. How do you think about injuries in general? There's two ways that we factor them in or at least, I'll speak for myself here, two ways that I factor them in, and I'll throw out the freak ACL tear out the window. I mean you know, unless someone's got seven Hooper cut, for example coup so. Oh, well, that's different. That's coming off of one. Oh, that's what he meant. No, I think he's saying, how do you project random injuries happening? You just can't. But if they're coming off of an ACL you're going to look at a time line. You're going to look at the recovery. The history of other players at that position. What are they usually do, when they're back? How long does it take until they're out one hundred percent those type of things regarding the first type of player the Fornet like like this is the four net rule, how do you stat for net because a four net play sixteen games, he's probably going to be a lock for top fifteen running back based on volume. Hell will have frozen over. However, right. So what do you do, and for, for my process, a lot of times, what I'll do is I will go in and I will stat. I start I start my studying every player for sixteen games. I I look at a sixteen calendar that way every number that I'm attributing each player versus another one makes sense. And then for some of those players, I'll go in and I'll do something like I'll take a game away, all basically, take fifteen sixteenths of the stats. I gave them an attribute that so that they are a little bit lower. And then the other thing is for the ultimate draft kit purposes, you, we build those into our risk raining. So you'll see players out there like four net. When you're drafting and he's in a certain tier. But his risk might be higher than those right around him. And you could factor that in your draft. Yes. So for a Rostro construction perspective, if you're looking at risk ratings in the ultimate draft kit, maybe you're not stacking four or five guys on your team that have high risk ratings. If you're wanting to build a roster that has a little bit more predictability when it comes to injury. You know, it's, it's always interesting because even the for example, let's say that Leonard fournette, MRs two games. All right. Let's just say we know that. Well, you know, that changes his year in stats in total, but it doesn't change his game to game stats. Right. So if you believe he's going to be a very productive player when he's active that's worth it. Then it's probably not going to be huge factor for you like it's like anything, you know we talked last week on over emphasizing keeper choices if you're in league that only has two or three keepers, people can overemphasize. Oh my gosh. I just got I draft youth for those three keep response. And it's not really worth it. You can overemphasize injury risk. You know there are players the Dante Pettis was injured two times last year. Is he coming back healthy? How does he look? You know you can you throw it out the window. Here's where I think you don't overreact. And I know Brooks will this players that are currently dealing with injuries. Like, like if a player currently has a hamstring issue when you're drafting, I'm gonna go ahead and take that into massive consideration. I'm not going to take just like I would view that worse than an injury history. So for nets you know one hundred percent camp hundred percent in preseason hundred percent. And I come to my draft and he's there or you know, someone who maybe doesn't have quite the same injury risk is dealing with a hamstring issue that one to me looks more. Applicable than the injury history. The quote unquote injury prone label. Yeah, yeah, that's fair enough. Fair enough good question. Cool. Let's do one more. All right. You good for one more. But it better be the best this. So get from Zach on Facebook. I hear a lot of is equal Elliott and saquon Barkley love at the number one pick, but not much about chimera at all. Is he just falling off the hype train, or is this, a purposeful thing that I am witnessing? No, I mean, look. It's neither of those, it's not a purposeful slight against Alvin Kamara. And I don't think he's falling off the hype train win. If you go back and you remember last year when Mark Ingram was gone those, those first four weeks, he was the number one running back and it wasn't close. It wasn't like he was really good. But so we're five other players. I believe three out of the first four weeks. He was THAAD number one running back. He was unbelievable. So there's a case to be made that he could be the number one guy this year. Now that marking room has gone TVs Murray will fill that role. But maybe he fills that role to ninety percent and an extra ten percent goes over to compare chimeras great. However, the reason he's not in that conversation with Zeke and, and saquon is because chimeras efficiency numbers are outstanding awesome. He's so good. But he doesn't get the volume volume is much easier to Bank on than officiency. You can you know for the amount. Carries the Kamerhe has, and you look at how many touchdowns come from that level of Carey's, it's just hard to, to say that's going to always happen because it's just very rare. And you're talking about deciding between great options. Yeah. Option one or two or three in the draft. You're not talking about a big gap. So it's not to disparage chimeras just it's easier to Bank on the, the huge quantity of, of Kerry's. You know exactly what the offense is going to do from total touch perspective. Look, if care if you told me Kamara was going to get that with the efficiency numbers, you're fine. But he you know, he's not built exactly the same as those other two guys either he's had a concussion history. So I think those are the small things that change it. Yeah, I would rather have three hundred and fifty touches then two hundred and fifty touches ES. Simple. Pretty interesting. All right. Today's preceding deal of the day, a t y Hilton signed Indianapolis Colts, jersey JSA witnessed autograph thirty eight dollars, sixty one cents Brooks.

It was life changing but now my bet me one hundred dollars yes that I can't hang being free hang from a bar for five minutes yeah I'll which will now end up on our social media because I accepted this and and then Al Borland chose to match it so I have two hundred dollars if I just hang from a bar for five min.

I weekly rewind brought to you by sleeper what's going on with Mitchell trubisky Mike while he left the game with a shoulder injury his non throwing shoulder and it's looking like it will be at least somewhat serious. They head coach Matt Nagy saying. It's not a season ending injury but when you're coach has to come out in week four and say well look. It's not a season ender. I'M GONNA miss.. He's GonNa miss some time. Chase Daniel is not a great quarterback so I think the bears get an upgrade here. I was GONNA say unfortunately for Trubisky Isky it wasn't his throwing shoulder was not so there's no chance for rookie of the year situation for trubisky. This is so brutal brutal title. He'll miss this week at a minimum. He's having tests done. We'll keep you up today. Josh Allen Forced from the Patriots game with a concussion is week to week week. We'll monitor that they played tough. I mean both of those teams. Their defenses heat them in games. Regardless of WHO's starting at quarterback. I mean the bills covered this spread. I think it was six and a half but I mean that might have been six depending on what part of the week but it was and that took a special teams touchdown from the New England Patriots Bill those are good. I was really excited to see the Patriots great you know offense of the first three weeks against US bills great defense and see which one is legit and clearly the bills defense is one that scares me to go up against for fantasy assets. Josh Allen like I said that hurt Marlin Mac left the fourth left in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Jarvis Landry exited the second half with a concussion which is man. He was balling on out. Yes he wasn't Tj Hopkinson. ooh That was scary. One big time can caution did not return did score before the concussion but hopefully he's okay. Christian Kirk limped off the field at the late part of the Cardinal Game Yeah. It looked looked real bad the the leg got caught underneath. Kenny stills left the Hammy injury. Dontrelle inman laughed because every offense of flare on Dr. It is currently injured so yeah we right now. It's Keenan Allen and they play Denver next week. Melvin for Harris Yeah Melvin Gordon back though and the right time according to Adam schefter those of you who have Aj Green on your bench you're waiting. expected to be out at least three weeks six. He's taking his time to get back from that injury. He's going into a final season under contract and he has not rushing back to the you to the Bengals as should play tonight case keenum we saw he was benched in the first half of this game and the Jay Gruden came out and said who do I want to sacrifice to the god of the Patriots this weekend. Oh my man did you can't if you're if you're GRUDEN. I know you're on the hot seat. I know there's probably a lot of pressure for management. You gotTA put case Keenum back out you put king or McColl or Colt McCoy. You cannot put Dwayne Haskins out that you you cannot do that to who should be the future of your franchise his first start at just sacrifice to the wolves. Do it the most valuable fantasy player earlier this season has been the New England Patriots yes and next week. They are just going to dominate. We didn't see T. Y. Hilton Terry McLaren Mike Williams Rashad Penny Justin Jackson Damien Williams and Devon Single Terry. Those are all the inactive McLaren. You know. Some people believed he was going to play. He didn't Hilton Hilton was doubtful. So hopefully you made other arrangements. Mike Williams in company. We'll see every penny can get back. Chris Carson had an ice week in Arizona Great Bounceback Bounceback Week and reminder weekly news and notes brought to you as always by the sleeper Abdul miss a single piece fantasy football breaking news download the free apt today. Let's get into the studs this week's fantasy Stud Muffins Jason you can just go ahead and highlight which which of these studs were the ones to defeat you this week despite your high score all of them he had all the no. Lamar Jackson was the Stud quarterback that defeated me in fact that feed me thanks to the very late very garbage time. Willie snead touchdown. It was Disgusting Acting Jameis Winston Twenty for forty one three eighty five and four. This is the Jameis Winston. You've envisioned yeah with Bruce Arians begins. This game was incredible. Ninety five points scored and you know now travels to a seemingly impossible task in New Orleans Orleans against the saints the that was absolutely dominant last night against Dak Prescott so you know has he leveled up. That's the big question no the answer. There's no okay we'll see monstrous. Monstrous gains from James Plenty of times ten times anytime he will as long as he is allowed to continue. You're playing football. He will have monster games and really disappointing games the weird thing about James. You can't always predict the rams defense this week. They looked outstanding outstanding through the first three weeks. They were a top five defense across the board and then James Goes into Los Angeles and absolutely lights the field on fire was unbelievable and shockingly it didn't feel this way through most of the game but both Chris Godwin and Mike Evans could have a good game aim together. It only took forty five point four touchdowns at three hundred eighty five passing yards. No I mean there was doubt as to whether Godwin would even play in this game I would have gone Chris Chris God mode for one of those one of those punts but Winston with those two guys in Bruce Arians and in Bruce Zarian willingness to drive the ball down the field. He had a great game but we have seen great gains from him before. I don't think in New Orleans. You're going to be able to start it. Carolina's Stevens has been great as well also the next three weeks is New Orleans Carolina by week for Payments Winston. I am not chasing the James Points. I just I'm trying to give him some credit here because deserves credit the the past two games. He's dominated for fantasy football in the past three games. He's been a good quarterback. I mean up the game in week. Two Against Carolina he was more of a game manager but completed sixty four percent of his passes had a passer rating of one hundred and three to sing like if it will be interesting to watch because New Orleans yes they shut down Dak Prescott but they have been allowing points. They got. They have some suspect corners on that team. I mean it's possible. I just throwing it out that I think it is possible that he's getting he's figuring out Bruce Arians system and he will in fact level up for fantasy. The saints have given up a lot of points on the season two quarterback and wide receiver this week notwithstanding yeah yeah and we're we've the only got a few weeks so I I bet against Jameis Winston in a heartbeat this week in personally I mean we've seen this fifteen times for him but not in succession so we'll see it was very impressive performance for the Tampa Bay buccaneers on the road in this matchup so you do he does deserve credit for winning this one and the rams tried to bounce back had multiple times jared goff had five hundred and seventeen passing yards three interceptions in a fumble sixty eight passing attempts in this game which is the third most all time and they lost the game Rogers. Mario perset Stafford flacco all had impressive weeks anybody stand out as somebody you're chasing for future streaming dreaming purposes Stafford's on buying next week. the name that I'll highlight is it's Koby perset mean. He now has the past for the season. I should say three touchdowns two three two. I'll be multi touchdowns in every single game. He's not putting up huge as yard edge but it's it's reminiscent of those you know. The old school Aaron Rodgers Games where it's two hundred fifty yards but he's giving you three touchdowns so eat eight. Jacoby percent is very interesting. It's on the road against Kansas City next week for him which that's not not like clanging. Kansas City is not the best yes if you have if you're missing Marlin McIntyre Hilton again that will be a huge problem as as a streaming guy that you could still get off of waivers. I can't imagine much such a much better situation than having a guy who's three weeks in a row a top twelve fantasy quarterback having to play catch up with the kids city chiefs all right. Nick Chubb Went Bananas as did Lynyrd for Net this week Chubb Twenty one sixty five and three the third most rushing yards is ever allowed by Baltimore. You talk about defence. You expected to have good weeks. If you played the rams the ravens the packers you probably got negative points and they did not show up this week so you know Nick Chubb when ham the browns very impressive important performance for them beating Baltimore on the road yeah they're they're tackle defensive tackle. Brandon Williams was out that was kind of like a late addition to the the injury report on Sunday morning so if and when that news came out it was what this that's a big deal for Nick Saban and he's absolutely came through yeah it was it was interesting because this was a game that that you finally saw the browns with a big lead and able to say hey we're going to we're going to protect the lead and run the ball a lot. He did his damage later in the game or as the game went along and they and they were up their defense was playing outstanding so it's one of those things where you know in a matchup where they're winning. It's good to see that they're not going to just continue to throw the ball like crazy but the they'll protect the lead and give it to chop. We've got Jordan Howard with the big game from Thursday Christian McCaffrey doing in his thing Austin heckler. Maybe waving to the crowd. It was an awesome swung steak. You Austin very much. She did he take a little lap around the stadium. Words high-fiving is fantasy owners weighing allman did his thing eighteen for sixty three Natasha down six for fifty five and one through the air six for what no schedule Minnesota New England coming up for Wayne Gaughman but if he's the only back in town down with the passing game involvement he is not going to goose you. He's going to give you double digits most likely even in those matchups seven targets. That's very interesting yeah you. You just won't have these touchdowns which are pretty important yes so todd. Gurley was five for sixteen on the ground had two touchdowns seven fifty four through the air but I'm not going to eleven targets is great. It's great that you saw that he had sixty eight pass attempts in this game. They're getting blown out so sure I mean it. It's good to see him involved in the passing game for the first time this year has Seattle on Thursday Todd Gurley. Did your thoughts on him. Change all this week. Yeah I mean I aw I guess. My thoughts. Were more confirmed. I believe that they were going to make a concerted effort to get him more involved in the passing game based on what was being said after the Lawson or the victory but after the criticism in week three about girlies utilization obviously they they weren't able to give him the ball on the ground a lot because this game got out of hand really quickly but they they were. They were passing the ball too early. That's the thing I've been missing. That's the thing I've been wanting to see so yeah I I. I think girly is going to be fine option if he's not injured injured Chris Carson one hundred and forty five total yards did not score had twenty six touches against Arizona looked every bit. Ah The guy and did not fumble yeah you did it every day we Chris we had the privilege of going into that game spending spending some time with the NFL league team and there's a cardinals team and being down on the field and watching the cardinals are team get man handled and destroyed at home once again but we got to watch Chris Carson in person in every single play an extra yard an extra two yards next three yards involved in the passing game so it was a good bounce back game for him some of those bounceback players Carson Robert Woods. It was nice to see that this week you know it's only week four four guys this week for the whole season has not been defied decided and you get you brought up. You Know James Winston. He made a really bad week. One impression rice dunk week. Yes had three good Games afterwards. The inverse is true. Sammy Watkins Monsters Game One three bad games afterwards yet the impression impression from week one because of months and months and months and months of anticipation. It's a strong one. If you're not smart as a fantasy owner willing to I just beyond week one you're going to lose. I mean you have to be able to make changes to your team. Anybody else you want to mention it running back. They had a nice week. Der Williams saved his week with a couple of touchdowns downs without was kind of the recipe for success. I wanted to bring up Kerryon Johnson who had a monster game on the ground and the number. That's more important to me and shadow to Adam Levitan for highlighting this information on twitter since C. J. Anderson has been released seventy three percent of the snaps APPs seventy nine percent of the runningback carries averaging nearly twenty five touches per game for carrying on John's like they they let cj go and they have unlocked carry on Johnson. They almost won this game to win. One lost them the game. A one red flag for carry on Johnson was an extremely namely costly goal line fumble. You saw them on the Golan again. That was fantastic news for carry on Johnson's fancy value but if they win the game if he doesn't do but have to wait and see what Matt Patricia and his Ax will decide will he will he'd bring the acts down own on carry on being the goal line bad. I doubt it because I don't think he's got an option right. That's part of it which is kind of what happened in Seattle. That's that's why I had confidence in Carson. It wasn't so much look. If you had an opinion been fully healthy I'd be scared of my mind about Carson not getting the opportunity to reestablish but Kerryon carry-on. I'd hand the ball to twenty. Six carries twenty eight touches all right. We'll get into the wide receivers but I I want to talk to the football fans out there. Are you an Amazon prime member.

My thank goodness Chris Godwin Twelve for one hundred seventy two two on fourteen targets. There were some fantasy owners that benched him a lot did because of the fear the questionable tag to hip injury returned to practice Friday. You said a lot did a lot that I had late Sunday. I had moved him down in my rankings. This it was a guy who was genuinely hurting missing practice in a terrible on paper matchup and is like if I had a better option Russian you know or what was perceived to be a really good option. I could see myself having done that now. I I was lucky I got to play Chris. God whenever where I add them but I could see making that move I mean he was the number five wide receiver in week two. He's he's paying one receiver this week. He he might be number on on the year at this point one hundred four reception pace fifteen hundred and forty four yards sixteen touchdowns hundred thirty six target pace outside of week three which he was like five and a half points. He's been an absolute force for your lineup. Everything Bruce Arians is bringing to the offensive system is benefiting Godwin which we saw with Larry Fitzgerald in his time in Arizona and I mean the Goblin eats man the Goblin eats Goblin. Aj Brown three hundred ninety four and to do you make much of that performance. This is kind of what you saw one big play by him but he only had three targets. Get some raw ah it's super hard to start any wide receiver. Marcus Mariota with confidence but it is good to recognize that the talent Alan of Aj Brown which we all saw in the draft cities in the top three for all three of us pre-draft looked amazing and then out there on the field. This is a rookie he he makes these. NFL players look like tiny little guys. I thought this was a tight end. I he's just so big and strong out there so you gotta keep an eye on them but I I still can't imagine his stamps have to go up in the lineup. He's still has not played a single game with over fifty percent of the of the offensive snaps for the Tennessee Titans Titans now. There are wide receivers out there. If you're at a fast paced offense that you can get away with this but with with the way that the titans offense generally generally works yes he's going to do this. He can give you a big play but until he entrenches himself as a full-time wide receiver in this offense then I'm I'm. I'm perfectly fine missing out on these big games yeah not this show. I WanNa tell you what I'm doing in my legs and I'm not going after Jay Brown. I'm letting being somebody else. Pick them up off the waiver wire Buffalo Denver the chargers. Yeah no thank you know on for a bad on. Brown is a bet on Mariota and that is a bet. I'm I'm not willing to make. I'm sorry Tennessee fans you playing well. This was a good game. You deserve credit for the win. Go in some more games with your defense. Davante Adams Robert Woods Third Woods was third ave four targets. This is a game they had to throw and throw and throw and robber woods was the leading receiver on this team. Although Cooper Cup had nine for one twenty-one in one on fifteen targets both at fifteen targets so nice bounce back game for Bobby Lobby. Can we just get jeered off to throw the ball sixteen times a week. Do we want that though because they lost my fantasy team win there. I don't where cardinals fan good. Take that rams throw. The ball boosted my fantasy team Jarvis Landry for eight for one sixty seven tale. Beckham junior didn't really do anything landry. What are you doing based on this performance man. I I you know I I think he's a hold you know you roster him. I certainly you know I it's hard to start a Bo- I mean this is a guy that you know through the first three weeks. you know you're talking four receptions three receptions three receptions. You're not you're not happy with Jarvis Landry. Now you have this breakout cout game and I think that you I think you want to hold him and wait to see this happen again. It's not that you can't start them. He had sixty yards week one sixty a yards week three so he's not trashing you but I still don't believe that this I mean look you just said it right. Beckham disappearing that he was not utilizing utilizing this game. Do you expect that to be what happens going forward. No Odell Beckham is going to be the one Jarvis is going to be the to like. He was through the first three weeks but you you have to to hold them just to see if maybe there's more to this. Kenny Golladay Two touchdowns Colin Sutton two touchdowns this week we where's your temperature on on Cortlandt Sutton. You've been the most opposed to him on the season. He is now the wide receiver fourteen feeling halfway if they have to keep throwing the football I mean there are no one fourteen eighteen and Sutton's definitely been contributing in a big way. I mean Emmanuel Sanders Portland Sutton. I think sanders leading yardage against insight and had the two touchdowns on nine targets is clearly those two players for Joe Flacco so they have Los Angeles Tennessee over the next two weeks so I'm probably not competing heating form on the waiver wire but I I imagine a lot of people will be this week. Yeah I mean he's he's on pace right now for eighty eight receptions one hundred and twenty four targets yards words definitely and and the thing is this was who he was drafted to be. This isn't some Rando Guy. That's been up having a good strong. Tim Patrick's Patrick's yeah exactly having a strong first quarter of the season. This was a first round draft pick who was supposed to say it. Did he fall in second thoughts. Oh wow well. He was a first frowned hyped up your second raver that fell to the second round he was supposed to be great and and he looks like he's taking that second year wide receiver leap yeah seven interceptions for five six still a bet on it. You know a bet on Colin Sutton recipes and is a bet on Joe Flacco so he certainly performing so so far deserves Credit Austin Hooper Ricky Seals Jones Jimmy Graham Wilbur is League Ricky Seals Jones back from the dead and he was open open frequently. He looked good three for eighty two and a touchdown on three targets makes me sad for what Joko might have been sure sure that makes sense but it's nice to see Baker utilize them. If you want Baker to be stream -able you've gotTa have more weapons than you know then he has had so ricky seals does Jones stepping in admirably. I am not chasing Ricky's Fields Jones Austin Hoover nine thirty on eleven targets. He's on pace for one hundred twelve catches guys. Why is there a level up. Are we seeing that because last year you had a pretty consistent impressive year joked about Adam preseason being top ten guy being the new Jason Witten of generation. How could this happen. How could this possibly keep happening. If you have like. You've got Julia Eleo you have Calvin Ridley. You have Muhammad Sununu. How could you possibly have enough targets to continue to go to him but he was the tight end six week one the tied into two last week and now he has eleven targets. I mean tight end right now for fantasy football and he's had nine receptions in two of four games. I ah you've gotta start believing he started week. Yeah a good start you it's it. The Falcons are worse than I thought they would. He wasn't maybe this is a result of offensive line issues because that is well. If you can't stay stay in the pocket wait for downfield rows for Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones Developed Austin Austin Hooper has to be your escape. They'll look at Derek Carr when he's under pressure look at Baker Mayfield when he's under pressure finding Ricky Seals Jones week if you don't have time to let downfield routes developed. You've we've got to find Austin. Hooper and he's very reliable is a really good point. Andy Because Matt Ryan has been getting crushed. I mean at feels like every drive. There's two or three monster hits. He's taken that office of line is Garbage Joe Austin Hooper. Just this is a friendly reminder in two weeks. He will be fantasy football star of the week because he will be playing Arizona. I looked ahead to George kittles all schedule and he has a three week span where he faces Arizona because Arizona somebody else in Arizona enjoys kid is that it's towards the end of the year the GO-TO rate for George Kill. I mean he's those are the guy he's a winner. He's inviting his family as friends. Everybody knew in high school. Come down usually games. I you know as has as a local person we did get the email the home game here. They're they're doing George Kendall bobbleheads in Arizona right in Arizona. They'RE GONNA be handing out a foul or just because they know what he's GonNa do seeing it firsthand will digitally being open and every plows making a joke to Jason in the stands. Were watching this going nice to know at the end of any scramble drill he can always go to Disney for like ten yards wide. I let's move onto the stinkers stinkers of the week presented by odor eaters right. These guys stunk it up. They pooped in their big. Boy Boy Pants this week. Let me off your panicking on any of these guys. Tom Brady though he played the bills played the bills eighteen thirty nine. Maybe he plays the giants next week. In two weeks. He plays washing next week. Even Better Dak Prescott call this a blip. I will not call it a blip. I will call it a an important reminder that he's played very very soft defenses. He he asked play the he has to play the packers this week. He has to play the jets in New York. Yes the play Philadelphia so. I don't think you're going to get the same again. That's a fair point the harkening back to the schedules a fair point. I'm not saying that but I'm not I'm not super worried about the jets and the eagles I would be worried about him traveling there and then the divisional game more than he was and he played my who'd he play in the first three weeks the giants Washington in Miami. Yeah so so you have to have some I mean. We brought this up on the show. It was a smooth road for Dak Prescott. It's not saying bench him. It's just saying you you don't WanNa lock come in to a all time starter with three games right against those defense is and he's got no Michael Gallup right now. Jason witten led the team in receiving in yesterday so that you know Randall Cobb looks over the hill saw just something to pay attention to for four years. Shawn Watson fantasy owners. You don't don't have an option with wants you gotta keep playing but this was another bad performance same problem as Matt Ryan Right now. He's he's on pace to be sacked seventy two times. It'd be the second most all time this last week to Shawn Watson with my team played. You put up one hundred sixty six points to be fair. It was most of the game yeah yeah I mean. They're they're having some real problems here. I know they got Laremy Tunsil in there but this office of line is is terrible and to Shawn Watson took this hard. He was out four hours after the game he was still on the field Energy Stadium practicing. He is wanting to get these things fix see. This is a this is a blip Daniel. Jones had a rough one twenty three thirty one that looks good but he had two picks one touchdown it. There's an okay game yeah. I mean thirty three rushing yards as well. It was it was okay. Where did he finish on the week. Though Mike it's gotta be outside the top twelve. I can find that give me just a he's people flex Daniel Jones. He's Minnesota New England coming up. It's not her back eighteen so far yeah he's outside of my streaming possibilities for the upcoming week. Now without question is is that different for you guys go against Minnesota. That's New England so so. Are you willing to drop Daniel Jones. Yes you've got I would not you don't need a roster him for the for the hope in three weeks against the players Zona. That's a reality ability but Phil Blends Ian Royce Freeman once again split work. It wasn't pretty for either of them. What do you do with those two guys moving forward man. What would you do with your team it. I still think that Philip Lindsay is an RB fringe rb to rb three weekly. It was against Jacksonville next week against the chargers. It's not as difficult unfortunately right after that they follow up with the Tennessee titans so he's he's a fine depth piece but hopefully hopefully at this point like if you're relying on Philip Lindsey to be your rb two right now. You should start making some moves. Would you rather have Philip Lindsay who has been single digits in three or four weeks so far but heading monstrous week three right Royce freemen went down but he blew up on Green Bay or would you rather have David Montgomery a massive season between those two yeah. I would rather have Montgomery. He's had a tough stretch of games but you've seen the carry count. The total opportunities excluding targets go up. I David Montgomery is going to continue to get better and better as the season goes along Lindsey in Freeman. We'll just have their good games and mostly twenty six warning twenty six opportunities so twenty one carries and five targets for David M- opportunity. He's things things have gone up generally speaking on every week they're going to have to lean on a more now right which angle Chechnya's the quarterback and just strategically weekly what the offense wants to do. I imagine that they're gonNA lean on the running game and their defense to win Games without Mitch Trubisky. Maybe what they needed to do with Mitch Trubisky but nevertheless I I think it forces Montgomery into another prove opportunity and he's been double digits although not spectacular at any point sure I mean I think now they can rely on their passing him a little more. Ah Tomato Tomato Man Take that Mitch Trubisky such you mean Mitch Mitchell trubisky was mean to me last year that when I when I said he was never going to be a great quarterback lambasted him and then he went out and threw six touchdown. Wait Euros so root. You're you're mad at trubisky for for being mean to you. Yes he was only mean by being great but he was only mean because Jason instigated everything by being mean. You have started if I would say he started now in fairness. He started it by being so bad so long that part of it sorry bears fans or congratulate all right we need to we need direction here. Against Sony Michelle was the only running back in New England to get any semblance of carries in this game he had seventeen of them for sixty three yards against buffalo and they have a very nice scheduled Washington and New York the next two weeks. Rex burkhead did not get any carries on the ground had one target. He was banged up coming into the game. What do you make of this. He was vulture by Brandon bolden on the FO four yard line. If you throw a touchdown in there it'd be a nicer game but obviously obviously again another disappointing performance. Sony Michelle Seventeen carries unless you're in a point per carry league. You're not happy with this week. Washington and the giants are next stop as we have said for the New England Patriots. I think he should be fine. UNIX watch the practice reports with REX burkhead if he's still missing practices and dealing with injuries you might see more of this where you're giving the the complete lion share of the carries to Sony and Buffalo's defense great so you can't really you know so Sony against Washington against the giants. Those are matchups. Were if he's getting the carries you're going to have refined foods. Three point seven and Kerry is like made of like in his dreams right now. That's what he did against Buffalo after the start of the season so maybe maybe brighter days days with those two match-ups coming up. What do you do at some of these superstars. Let's go to floor. Superstar wide receivers ending up in these stinkers of the week. Look make it five. Let's make it six superstar. Wider Ode L. Beckham De'andre Hopkins Adam Dealing Julio Jones Keenan Allen Amari Cooper super well. I okay so we we. Let's narrow this discussion. You GotTa Talk About Odell. Beckham Deandre Hopkins 'cause Julio Jones has been great again. I'm not worried about Julio. It was a it was an off game. It happens for everybody but deandre. Hopkins is three weeks in a row. Yes there's no functional advice advice that you can give for fantasy owners Beckham Hopkins Julio or keen announced. They are regardless of what they did this week. There's nothing physically wrong with them. I am they're the number one on their team and you have to play them. So there's nothing functional you can do about your but Adam feeling six targets. He he came out and roasted. He was mad at team for not they said look even with the best running back in the league. Here's a little tip of the count to delve and cook. You can't can't run for one hundred eighty yards a game. You have to be able to throw the football. All this money is invested in Kurt cousins all atom feelings up with two for six on six targets and if you are a an digs or thelander digs had a pretty good week digs of course of course digs put one hundred yards on the bears of course he does but I what do you do man and are these guys just going to switch weeks because the passing volume so low there. I don't think that either lenore nor digs. They are trustworthy on a weekly basis. You can throw them in and hope you get to. Stefan digs hundred yard game but adam is right. I mean you can't we windier. Entire offense is just running the ball because you've you have turned off the Faucet of your passing game like you're not you're not getting any reps. Repson it and then all of a sudden. You really really need you. Pass a game like Oh crap were. We don't excel in this like this is going to happen so the the vikings they really need to figure out how to get the PAT. You GotTa get both of these sides of your offense work you. You can't just be a running team. I don't believe in in today's. NFL You need to figure out how to get kirk cousins going. He's had great games for you in the past I but with the office that is in front of them. Kirk cousins looks horrified. He looks horrifically bad and I don't think that that's the quarterback that he actually is I Still Trust Adam theline I this this is the Chicago bears through the first three weeks. Adam feeling he had seventy five yards in week two touchdown week one a touchdown touchdown week three. He's he's someone where I totally agree. He's he's not the dominant star of a two though yeah well. I trust them as as has a low and one high end who wow no. I'm not in that one cat you look at the four gang comparison this year to last year's first four games and I'm thinking went from and I don't have the numbers right in front of me but I saw it this weekend. He went from four hundred eighty yards in the first four games last year to one hundred and seventy. I don't trust him as a one by any stretch. Mike you're no he. He is saving his weeks with touchdowns and yet. I guess we're just looking at it differently where you're looking at it yeah. He scored a touchdown us down weeks one week three. I'm looking at it. As if my wide receiver one has to score a touchdown then he's not a wide receiver one if I can't get a good week's worth of production just receptive yards alone. You aren't a horned. Here's the numbers Scott Bear but these out weeks one through four last year forty thirty receptions four hundred seventy three yards for feeling and I know it was an except I but still forty receptions. This year weeks went through four thirteen interceptions. That's a that's a quarter right. Hundred seventy nine yards compared to four seventy three. It's just trust. It's a trust problem. I don't think that I think atom dealings one of the top ten receivers football. I think he's a monster and maybe the squeaky wheel treatment which is what he's GonNa get this combination of squeaky wheel with the fact that the vikings likings now two and two they lost this game and they clearly need to get kirk cousins going Adam thiel and is actually a really great wide receiver in real life in NFL. I think those things are going to make it to where he is going to be okay. Maybe maybe one is is too high. Maybe that's gone for him but I still think he's a guy that I'm I'm. GonNa have my lineup everywhere. I have is Sammy Watkins. A Mirage guys three for fifty four and six targets fumbled didn't get into the end zone on three straight weeks. You were disability was in the end zone night onto the ball for a couple of seconds but anybody anybody can get that lay. I mean through three weeks the past three weeks he was in the forties. I mean what he finished. This week is probably in the forties or fifties at the position so you really did not get what you wanted from him three or four weeks. I still think I still think you're fine here like Mike said he he had the touchdown. That was punched out. It was an incredible punch knocked the ball out otherwise I mean if he if he catches that we're talking about. Oh great great bounceback game it didn't and you know he's still got open on a couple of big plays the upcoming schedule Washington ah or absorb sorry the got the colts next and then Houston yes. I think that I think Sammy is still still someone that he's he's leaving and targets from Pat Mahomes and that's what I want to trust and is the owners probably regret not trading him high though after week one yeah regret that offers came in. Yes for Sammy Watkins and over the last three weeks. We've had somebody outside the top thirty six at the position. The Marcus Robinson did nothing to say hardman did nothing this was the the outlier for Patrick. Mahomes salons have a good team. Yes yeah yeah are they do have a good team but no one aside from in the passing anyways. Travis Kelsey had a fine game but none of the wide receivers for Kansas City. You went off this week. Depending on your scoring format McColl Hartman may have finished with negative points. Dj More Curtis Samuel Tough game by Kyle Allen what what's your confidence level with Dj More Curtis Samuel Moving forward they've Jacksonville on the docket. Nah great next week Yeah Not Gray Bob. He's not great Bob. I mean we we knew being out here in the valley that Kyle Allen love he was getting a great job but that was the Arizona cardinals defense as well. You're you'RE GONNA come screaming back to Earth Greg Olson as well had a miserable game and yet Chris McCaffrey Carey Carey that team on his on his back back in the end they won. They won the game. Did you guys watch the CAM. Newton video. I guess entirety was also invalidated kind of the speculation. I brought up before like I don't think his his team knew he was hurting when when you call them liars well a evident that he didn't let them know that he was hurting. It's also talked about that. He couldn't run and move in practice. I mean if if you're a coach part of your job as a coach is to watch your players and then coach them you had to have known own watching Cam Newton move run a practice that he's hurt yeah sure but that's different than lying about it. I stick with my statements. You're my steak with my statement. Hokey cokey all right well. Cam Newton's not come back until he's one hundred percent. That's what you got out of this video. Oh in what was evident and he said he couldn't push off. The couldn't run couldn't do the things that he wanted to do so hopefully when you get him back you're getting. Real Cam Newton back on this offense and they're winning save one ballgames without him 'cause they've held on their defense is playing well on Christian. McCaffrey is an absolute monster. I think what what the video did. God help with one I mean it. It's a nice look at the human being of Cam Nunu Him. It was very honest very transparent which you've rarely gift from athletes suck. It's just it was very refreshing to see what on top of that what you're saying Andy when he comes back you know you're getting the running. Cam Newton the the fantasy Stud Cam Newton. We'll be back once he's once he starting again for Carolina which is great news because we would have no idea via without this information when Cam Newton came back or are you. GonNa have confidence really start him. We got one. That's why I just. I'm going to be the counterbalance to your Ron Rivera bashing because to me it spoke so highly of the organization an Ron Rivera that you're you're in a position there. Were you trust your quarterback. If your quarterback says he's fine which is what he said and then you defend him publicly. That's a great coach. That's what great coach. Does you defend your guy regardless of what you know if if your quarterback says he's fine you have to publicly defend them to the media so I was impressed with that when he said Look I've got the support of Ron Rivera and the organization. It spoke highly to me of Carolina but but I like Riverboat Ron. I've never I've I've been a fan of him. Never called him a liar. I haven't okay hey hey hey but it varies. I definitely thought he was like did you call him a liar. You scream pants on fire. I don't know I called him a big fat liar. Oh come thank you for clarifying because the size of the lie. It was gigantic as this shows going on. I've become more concerned about being able to hold onto that bar for five minutes. Yes oh I want I want you to. I know that because I think I think the seconds will take by a lot slower. When I'm hanging there. Come minute three. I'm a little concerned to three well. I'm GonNa do my very best. That's for sure I want a long video here for Youtube. I learned that her and my at this point saving face. Can I make it a minute. GonNa make it two minutes. I'm a little little more concerns already beginning well look if if I'm hanging from a drone flying over city it makes my survival now I lead you can hang as long because I want to address my hands. Yeah of course you can reach us your his long as your feet don't touch so as long as I'm not fallen. I can do whatever I want my hands around of course of Oh. You're back to find look if there's one guy in this office that can open a pickle jar. That's just me you've got the strains so I'm betting on my large mess. Ask In this situation you ever opened a pickle jar. That was a two hundred pound man. I'm one hundred and ninety four pounds. My stinkers at all week presented by odor eaters. I hope I don't end up in that. Category Odor eaters the best in odor defense about to be a stinker. Hey if you have let me ask you a real question here. Vance McDonald doubtful for tonight if you are. You're so foolish you you held onto him through the weekend. Would you give it. Would you whitby willing to drop bands me. DONALD TO PICK UP. Somebody like I for tonight. Save that you just go back the waiver wire to pick them back up. If you need to obviously it's going to depend on your situation situation. You might know you already won the game in which case just put Vance out there with the goose egg if you want but otherwise. I don't think he's GonNa play. I think you have to get I for all right. We WanNa thank today's studio sponsor everyday studio sponsor Pristine Auction Dot Com Robert Woods signed Jersey for forty five dollars all bobby words. Let's they disrespected. You bought the dip every time he calls him Bob Woods. I told him he loses five yards per reception. What about Bobby Woods though bobby a little bit better bobby this funding well. This week is the bounceback bobby. I was informed that the proper use of alliteration no you're talking about all the like if you had gone with Marcus Mariota. It's just the sound. It's got the letter so if kirk cousins is alliteration yeah so you could you could have started kirk cousins. Mike isn't that a real thrill. That would have been unwise.

Mailbag! Ben Gretch is Back and so are the Fantasy Cops (11/14 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from cbs. Sports play it's time to dominate your fantasy league. Now here's some combination of adam. Dave jamie benn to your saturday mailbag everybody. We got your apple. Podcasts questions your emails. Fantasy football at cbs dot com atom as. We're here with frank sample. we're gonna give you the latest news and And so in the fantasy conscience. Well what's going on frank. Yo what's going on at the week of death is here. Gosh week ten. Yeah i was trying to think of something better than that. You can do better than that. Yeah well. I was trying to think of something. That was tough right. It was like what about a really. Well done steak right. Gross char broiled steak. That's pretty tough. That's what this week. This is the week of well. Yeah if you eat your red meat well done. You're just not well done. That is that is not well as a job poorly done. You're missing a we have a special guest on today's show. His name is ben. i'm told his last. Name rhymes with catch. Ben grach is here. Ben grach is here ben. I know you what's up man. what's going on. I'm glad to be back Still still getting all the ask. F f t you know questions and my fantasy my twitter notification still kind of loosely being roped in with people. I'm not sure people realize that. Me and schrager different people still to this day so i have to remind myself all the time it was like. Don't don't insult bench about the washington. Huskies he doesn't care about them. It's a different ben two different band. Well listen this. Is ben gretch at yards progress which he was on the show for two years right two years one year about a year and a half year and a half. Okay right in the middle. What are you up to these days. I am about yourself just doing doing the newsletter and some sports betting stuff I'm missing you guys. It's been a it's been a little different. Definitely not having the regular chats with not getting as irs news and notes on on on pods that i was kept me informed of all the latest information kept meet kept me sharp. So yeah well i sort of miss you. But i don't like the fact that one of the last things we argued about was me saying that you cannot draft christian kirk over juliet edelman and a pr league. You're crazy if you do that. So i was enjoying that. Never coming up but now you're here so i'll own up to that. So good job on christian kirk. We've been giving you his oz for that you know and I remember that. I you the feedback i get is a lot less huzzahs a lot less excitement about that guy and we'll fuller digs and a lot of the guys got right and a lot more about jonathan taylor. Yeah tj more. That was the first thing. I asked ben before we started recording. Ben what's going on in taylor. What are we thinking. What do we think are us optimistic about him. I wouldn't say optimistic. No i mean. I think pretty clearly. There's a trend going the wrong direction here and you know it seems like name. Hines is a better fit for the offense right now for what. Philip rivers needs But at the same time. I just tweeted out earlier today. I think it's really interesting for the season. Jonathan taylor has the exact same amount of carries right now. As jordan wilkins humans combined and he has one more rushing yard. and one more touchdown. He's basically been just as good as the other backs. He's averaging three point eight yards per carry. Not good hines at three point. Nine wilkins at three point seven. They're all basically not good. But i think the perception right now is that hines and wilkins have been way way. Better and lately they have been the last couple of weeks But i think when you look at it from that perspective means okay. Taylor feels like he can't possibly be any worse than he's been Any still kind of basically been as good as these other guys. That seem like they're playing. Okay in playing better than taylor that to me. Says there's some potential that taylor figures whatever's going on out You know like we saw miles sanders figure out last year and his rookie year. But there's still some upside down the stretch but you can't be super super optimistic about them right now at all. Are there any players that you are super optimistic about to have a big second half. Should prepare you for this. Sorry yeah no i mean. There's definitely some. I talked about rookies a lot in the off season. And we've seen a lot of the rookie receivers do well. I think we'll see some of these rookie running backs do well down the stretch. All of them. It feels uncertain right now. But i mentioned sanders because In week six to eight last year that was the three game stretch where he got the fewest touches of any of his three games all year. It wasn't right away early in the year it was. It was like middle the year that the there was also talk that he's never gonna get an opportunity yet. It took an injury to jordan howard but people also really questioning his talent So there's guys you know. I don't love the Situation right now. But i love the waste played so far Antonio gibson it seems. Jd mckissick always gonna be there. But you know that's somebody else that i think. If he gets the opportunity could be pretty good Can makers is a really tough one. And i was never particularly high on him but There who who the other one oh. Jk dobbins it you know if dobbins gets a little bit of a longer run along release i think he could certainly have some Some upside the rest of the way. So the young guys for sure i mean. There's the long term trend that that rookies do better. In the second half of seasons we saw. Aj browns. another example from last year wasn't great through this point we ten is when he started playing full-time. Dj more two years ago we ten is when he started playing full time We started to see that with some some other lesser known receivers as well denzel mim some guys like that. That could epic second half. So i would say look those rookies. Don't give up yet. Just because they haven't been great. So far adam. One name jerry jeudy. He's at yeah. It is sort of happening with him. And my guy had been jarvis landry. I did trade for him. One of the best situations you can be in is in a two quarterback league where you have like four quarterbacks and by weeks hit people hard is i was able to trade nick. Mullins jarvis landry in our to quarterback league. Pr and i even think and it's a little bit late for this. Just remember this for next year. I guess i even think of you have a good quarterback situation. In qb league you can be aggressive with fab and go get that fourth quarter back when you know when it dak prescott gets hurt you go get any dolphin garoppolo. Get nick bones. This only two quarterback league where. There's like no zero zero starting quarterbacks on the waiver wire and you get that one shot to get starting guy. Because i spent thirty five bucks on nick mullins but now the way i look at it as i spent thirty five bucks three percent of my budget on jarvis landry so you can always i see these lobster. Lopsided trades all the time in qb leagues because people people cannot win without a quarterback in their lineup that week so they're desperate and they give up an asset. Maybe land stink. I don't know. But i think he's gonna be alright. And after this week because of the wind begin asset for your trash quarterback that you don't even need so that's some nuggets from us. Let's get to the news and notes. David johnson out this week. That's almost official i. He's going to be out joe. Mixon missed practice. So frank duke johnson. Geo bernard do johnson ranked one spot ahead of geo bernard i like both guys but in terms of usage what we saw from duke johnson last week eighty percent of the snaps twenty touches. It's not a great matchup against the browns. But the reason revenge game narrative i would expect around fifteen carries a couple of receptions as well for duke johnson and while it's not a great matchup it is a better matchup than geo bernard going up against the steelers so both high arbutus give me. Do johnson mark ingram practiced and devante freeman missed practice. So ben if freeman is out in ingram is in who would be the best running back on either baltimore or new york would be gaughman or to be a ravens running back throws i guess goldman i mean i would not be very excited about either backfield in that's near. Tc hawkins in practice. But kenny golladay did not our friday reports here so hopkinson is probably gonna play guard. Probably not jerry. Jeudy is expected to play and the viscous chenault is out. We got your apple podcasts. Questions here we go. Thank you so much for your five star reviews. We appreciate it. this is from all right. I can't read these names. Have to zoom in here hanging right. They're very small very small dean dadi. Oh flex help needed picked. Two out of three will fuller tyler. Lockett and nick chubb will follow tyler. Lockett nick chubb. I'm i'm going to bench willful. Or they're putting on my meteorologist. Cvs weather desk to frank. Stemple look i. Love will fuller and what he's done. The season shutouts ben and it was fantastic willfuller but and like him to an extent solid wide receiver to this week but Give me nick chubb in a weather game where i expect him to run a lot and a good matchup and tyler lockett who will not be show shadowed by jalen ramsey in that game. Okay and ben agree. Yeah yeah. I would just echo that i i think if for some reason the the forecast changes than than fuller probably projects better than job but It looks like there's going to be twenty plus mile an hour wind. And i would say if it still looks like twenty plus mile an hour when you've got to go. This is a question from p baby. He's already starting michael thomas. So would you go. Withdrew breeze or jared goff. I think i'm going Goff 'cause says a little bit of a shoulder thing that's a little bit unclear. I think he's gonna play and everything's fine but golf has just a fantastic matchup against seattle yet. I have got a few spots. So i'm cool with that from nine. Seven seven nine zero six four. I really hope that is not someone's phone number but it certainly definitely is what i said it out loud. I was like that is definitely. Somebody's phone number. But we don't know the area code so Yeah don't worry about it. I've jimmy graham and jared cook. Can you please talk about their upcoming schedules and rank them graham and cook. Okay well that's gonna take a little bit of time. Let's do this first of all. I'm going to say that. I would take cook regardless of Upcoming schedules. i think They're both really kind of questionable. But graham has been losing snaps to rookie coal commit lately. He's definitely still going to have a red zone. Role in essen touchdown potential. But i think You have to like cooks quarterback situation quite a bit better. So i'm not gonna like dig into tight end match up so much that i'm gonna go for the older I guess they're both old. But the the the guy that has A rookie really It's funny because cook. Has adam trotman there too but met already started to make a move on graham. And so so i wouldn't be going with him over overcook. Okay but on the other hand cook does get the falcons twice and the eagles all right. Forget about the schedule on the other hand. Cook as four and a half targets per game and graham has six targets per game take that. Yeah but it just really fused for outs of the season. This past week in terms of per dropback and it has been trending down. I think it was the the fewest the week before as well but spent turning down all right so so graham cook for ban. How about you frank. I think this is super close. And hear what ben is saying. I've i've noticed the trend with the routes as well but graham tied for second in the nfl and red zone target so. I don't think that he's good but he is using that part of the field and that's what you want out of a tight end rob you wanna touch down so it's very close but i'll take jimmy graham by hair. I cannot believe. I give someone's phone number on there more questions here from dan in the mitten gray the trade. Give kenyan drake and robby anderson. Get nick chubb. Be minus. i'm gonna give it a c. I think robby anderson is pretty good. And he hasn't scored a touchdown though since week one and it was kind of a flukey touchdown right. It's also kind of fluky for a guy to have as many targets and catches as he has a not be scoring more touchdowns new. You're gonna say. I knew he was going to say that. Everybody right leads. Carolina wide receivers with seven red zone targets as well so makes it even more fluky adam. Okay how many green zone. I dunno franklin. Yeah so i give it a b plus b minus frank see from grach from justin dear goal man damon and night man rest of season if i were to stick with one. Dsp would you go with the patriots or the packers sticking with one dsp rest of season. It's gotta be somewhere league. I think the packers. They have a pretty good schedule. The rest of the way to get the jacksonville this week. They have a couple jacksonville colts. The bears the eagles lions the the panthers and the titans. Yeah that's a. That's a good schedule by the way pretty good patriots kind of stink on defense on them. Yeah all right and they got baltimore this week from grant richer by the way you guys know the whole demand day man. Yeah oh my guy frank. I used to watch always sunny. But i kinda fell off so i don't don't even watch it but that is the most famous scene. I'd say it's so funny. Grant witcher would you trade dalvin cook for derrick henry based on their end of your schedule. No no. I wouldn't from andy with no facial hair grade. The trade give james robinson and justin jefferson. Get michael thomas keenan allen happy. Pr have running back depth. I liked this trade. I would give it a b plus. Yeah i'd give it with the same caveat. Assume that you have enough running back through trading robinson i give it an. I mean getting allen his top five receiver right now and micheal. Thomas i think should be as well so you're getting two very good receivers potential quad man. Eighty hey dustin justin bryson brooks little masters love their Those guys play golf golf for. Pbr twelve go. The best of the best. I'm so glad to be back. Mini golf right. Oh yeah i sleep. Gov so bad. Yeah this is by the way this question's from quad man which is my nickname. The gym full pbr. I'm glad benz back. He's the only one who laughs at my jokes. People are elaborate jokes again. Man come on salah. thank you claude. Mad at work he got that one. Yeah thank you. Give up leonard. Fournette get lamar jackson Then i'm fine with that. That's a be a like that. Especially if you need. Help a quarterback from danger erin gray the trade. My name is aaron. And i decided to trade chimera and cooper for mclaren and zeke. What do you think about that. That's a d. camerin kupa. chlorinate zeke. Don't love that and want one. That's a bad us idea derived. Where's the bathroom where all these things are. Located by. Now from pod raider. I love that he started with. My name is aaron and like he was at. I know it was really funny to see an anonymous meeting new. The of the great any the grade you. My name is erin from pod raider. Thanks for the great shows. I have a question for this week in a tough match-up as well as going forward does a quarterback wide receiver stack at some point outside the obvious teams become subject to a law of diminishing returns. I'm starting joe. Burrow this week with matt ryan on by and my top four wide. Receiver options are cooper. Kupp tyler boyd tee higgins and dj more so basically. He's wondering like he's gotta start. Joe burrow cut boyd higgins more. I don't think he wants to start to many bengals against the steelers. So like do you sit one of them for dj more or what to the broad question. I the way that. I always think about this as terms in head to heads. You don't usually make these big stocks when you're playing in. Gp's you're making stacks. You can staff at quarterback with multiple receivers in those types of things but though the stacks that you're targeting our teams that have these high implied totals based on you know high over under in the vegas markets and usually. They're favored as well. The the the bengals have an applied team told nineteen point five points. That's very bad this week Broadly long-term i have no problem with borough and two of his receivers stack. This looks like a team that with a bad defense and a willingness to pass especially on early nouns like they're passing with intent there above Above average on their pass rate over expectation on early downs. That's the type of team that like the seahawks and like the cowboys especially back when they had backed when you have a defense as well. You're going to throw a lot and you can have multiple receivers in that type of passing offense. It's great. I think going to be a top ten quarterback the rest of the way but this week. Probably don't wanna go there not against the steelers not with the d. The team total under twenty. It's just not a good setup for double stack with borough from From cheese says fantasy q. How value dj charcoal. Jonathan taylor rest of season waiting or wanting to send them in a tray but not sure what they're worth to. Jonathan taylor question. I can't answer. yeah. I mean. Taylor's a not to be relied on running back. That still has upset. I mean i think there's there's certain it depends on value if you can get value right now. It doesn't seem like you will get any value from him right now. There seems to be a pretty clear consensus. That jonathan taylor stinks and so i think you hold him and you try not to start him if you have other options and you hope that he breaks off a long run at some point You know people talk about a mile sanders Again i keep going back to that. Because there's a lot of strong corollaries there but he he only did because jordan howard got hurt. He also had a a really long touchdown in one of the in week by week. Six to eight weeks a stretch where he wasn't playing a lot. The colts still have to know the jonathan taylor. Their best bet as at a consistent running game they're running game hasn't been great regardless But they took him the traded up to take him in the top fifty picks. He's a very good talent. they don't want to get this out of him the rest of the year. They're going to give him opportunity if he hits on something they're gonna hopefully ride him a little bit boring and they've been a little a little in and out with him in in playing time but i still think there's upside if he gets a couple of big plays and get something. Going charge is great by the way. Let let love him. Jake dot keet on in las week. He's starting again Love to throw downfield more. He's not good this week. Another wind game but I'm hiding him there. The way to okay. So you wanna hear the stat that i give every week. You know those as our stats. I keep updating every week. You your miles sanders. I've already said it. Four times as we on the podcasts. All the listeners. At home you can play along. Seven straight games. No running back instead of carry of longer than fourteen yards against the giants. Anything about that. He's going to do it. He's had to seventy yard runs this year against the ravens and the steelers. Can you get the fifteen against the giants. I mean that's a pretty good stat because About the only thing the giants do well as defend the run. And you're telling us that is offseason advocate. Run d those your. You're over bias. Advocate. it is pretty much except when they win this week. They're to they're going to win the division. But you know what. What can i tell ya. Wow the homer gotta gotta you gotta have something okay so those. Thank you very much for your apple. Podcasts questions we'll get to your emails in a little bit was not what i meant. Press press there. We get specific. How do i know where these things are. The fantasy cops are here. This is our fantasy cops music. It's funky all right. This is from stanley. Says dear jerry. Larry terry and gary did you ever watch it adam apart rex. Yeah yeah i finished. That's happened in the last like year right because you haven't really been a big fan. I binged it during the quarantine basically because we were telling you it's such a great show. It is really funny except the last season is painful. Absolutely painful i mean one of the worst one of the worst seasons. I've ever seen if any show i don't even remember. It's so bad. Like ron and leslie or a fight i and then there's this like oh that's different areas. Oh it was just awful but but it didn't ruin the show. The show was great. all right. here's the here's the question for the fantasy cops. I normally they're am. There should be no vetoes and fantasy but this just went down in our twelve team keeper. League one keeper team is one. Eight has not said his lineup. Since week three has been called out for it in the group chat for not setting it and has not set his lineup. Basically everyone assumes he's not making any effort anymore team b's excuse me on the fringe of the playoffs and makes the following trade with team. May team gibbs d andre swift davante adams and nick chubb team be gives darrell henderson chase edmonds and markey's brown so swift atoms and job for darrell henderson edmonds and marquees brown pretty grabby trade. What do you do in this situation. I at least texted are threads saying that. If you're gonna make trades you need to set your lineup. And it's fair. It is fair to make plans for the future with one keeper but this trade is lopsided and with a team that wasn't putting effort in so i'm challenging. You guys is. I know you don't like vetoes. Especially you frank. You need this trait right. So i play in a keeper league where for years. We have these lopsided fire sale trade at the trade deadline every single year. And my retort would be. This is a keeper league. And if any of darrell henderson or chase edmonds or hollywood brown have some great round value as keeper then. I don't think there's anything you can do with the train. I think you just let it go through. If there's no phenomenal keeper value involved. I mean it's pretty egregious. In the fact. That team is not setting their lineup. I mean i would probably say yes veto this trade and probably kicked out on. What's interesting is it's a one keeper league. And i'm assuming maybe adams's have great round volume tach to him But the andre swift is still pretty clearly the best keeper here. It's kind of kind of hard to like i. I mean. I don't know maybe maybe it to me swift as great as three. The three best keepers are all on one team right. Smith's shabby the you know the it's gonna be till twenty twenty one for him but he seems like he's going to be good. Yeah we have in my longest running league. That's not a keeper. We actually have a rule in place And it's it's kind of a league. It started when we were all teenagers. but a lot of the rules are sort of informal as ran into these types of things and we have a rule in place when a team is very much in this situation. One in eight not setting their lineup. They can't make tricks like if you're out of it. You can't impact the the the top of the league. It's redraft league. You can't send a like specifically actually clarify specifically trading like your best player for a bunch of bit parts where you're dramatically impacting the balance of power. At the top the lakers. You're sending davante adams to a contending team like you. just you don't get any job. Yep so i think the key here is like what frank said if there's some type of incredible keeper value then it's hard to say it's hard to veto it. It's a crappy trade. But it's not necessarily veto but if there's not if that's not a factor here then veto and removed from league. Okay great you're getting into the heat's coming spirit of king people out of the frank now. Keith wants to kick everyone out of. They're going to be fourteen leaks. Wants eats done with everyone. Kicking everyone out from ben. Pay sheldon leonard. Raj howard penny bernadette and amy i bet franks never seen the big bang theory. Oh i i've seen. I've stumbled across a few episodes now my cup of tea. Oh it's i'm saying frank there i haven't seen a whole lot. It's terrific all right. We had a trade in our league. Were guy who's more experienced than the other then another in the league. This is the other guys first year. Okay they made a trade so experience guy rookie player our friends and betrayed giving t higgins and tony pollard. aaron jones the inexperience accepted the trade. The other league members and i are very adamant that the trade be vetoed. But the trade initiator says that the trade isn't that lopsided and that would be higgins and pollard. Aaron jones okay. What do we do guys testing you again. Are you ready to veto. This is a very lopsided trade so the idea that it's not lopsided is pretty funny like ta gins is. he's fine. he's a high end wide receiver. Three but pol is a handcuff. Who sees eight to ten touches per game for a top five running back in fantasy football right now So what are you gonna do. Mr no veto the fact that there is a caveat here that the other person is inexperienced. Right so i would say yes veto. This trade undo it and maybe kind of explain to that person why this is lopsided trade explained to the inexperienced inexperienced player white writes lops. And then another one where i'm going to go. I've experienced this before we had a first. Your guy do this and we said okay. There's been all these objections raised. I need you to defend your your reasons for making the street. And if he can make a solid case for why he thinks d higginson and twenty dollar. Gonna to beat aaron jones season than i think. It's hard to veto. But in that case that person said no. I really can't. I didn't really think about it. Because he's new to fantasy football. Like i really just didn't think about it. And we ultimately vetoed it because and that made the other guy matt so it's it's challenging but if it's a new person in a new person to this and doesn't really understand what they're doing and literally can't defend the trade then. It's hard to stay in my favorite part of that at this. Is that the experience players. Trying to justify his giving up higgins in power to get aaron jones. You know what you're doing man. You know your life i used to. I used to be like that too. I was when i first started playing fast. I was a shark adam. I was really that guy who's like sends essay text messages telling people why they should make this trade. I made trade with my dad in a league. Once and people were like this is collusion. Yeah come a long way though. I've come a long way man. We would've kicked you out of a league's all right last one last one from dave from ontario. Okay follow along here. In our league draft players just become automatic free agents. This includes players dropped as part of traits before game time on sunday. Our commissioner put through a trade in which leonard fournette was dropped after putting through the deal. The commissioner immediately picked up for net while this has always been our rule informat. Our commissions never jumped on a player like this. His argument is that if he would have waited someone else would have grabbed for net. Okay the commissioner has said. He's open to a league vote on the issue. No one in our league wants drop players to go to waivers. So what is our solution. Kick him out of the league. Commissioner is it weird. Yeah the only thing i can say is that i wish commissioner a baseball league and i turn off waivers every monday morning to make it a free for all so you know you put your claims in every night but monday morning before your lineups waivers are off. It's free agency. I always wait. Probably five to ten minutes after i turn them an email. The league is eight waivers are often. I try to get the same time pretty much every every monday morning. But i always wait five or ten minutes. I'm not gonna turn them off and then immediately go in and pick someone up. Because that's the kind of person i am. You know and obviously every ten minutes in that makes you here. yeah. I give people an opportunity to get in there. That's just i. I didn't want to use the word hero. But if you're gonna use it fine that makes that makes me a hero five minutes. The clock starts right now. I figure adam with like a cat down four nine. You're walking your dog. that's why i don't have a dog. dogs are bad for fantasy anyway. This is a weirdly. What would you guys say. This guy. Commissioner put the trade picks up for net immediately and says well you guys would have done if i didn't so What do you do. I think if the commission pushes a trade through specifically then the player. That's the rule like no one wants drop players to go to waivers in the league. But i would say that you have to make a little car that if the commission pushes a player through. He's gotta go on waivers till the next week or whatever like apparently this. This happened right before game time on sunday. Just put them on. Like i assume they have waivers once at the beginning of the week right. Why couldn't afford have just been on. Waivers yeah i don't know and that's a good point because this is a very different drop situation. This is where the commissioner knows. It's happening as it's happening and has cleared dibs. It's not like other players get dropped throughout the week. You might get a notification from your league. You go in and get and everybody's in the same boat. Commissioner has a huge advantage here. So i think ben is right. I think we kick frank league and we put fornet on waivers. These are good. Good fantasy cops questions they were. Have i have another solution. A just moving forward for this league where once a trade is accepted. It doesn't have to go through the commissioner like it's accepted right away so whatever comes of it like everybody has fair. Dibs like the commissioner doesn't know about the trade before it happens either like everybody finds out about the trade at the same time and if there's any player dropped and it's a free for all for everybody okay. Well what you're saying. So there's no there's no trade review period just goes through automatically yes. There's trade review period. I'm anti veto anyway. So yeah no. Trade doesn't see it even veto in a lot of trades today frank. I don't believe anymore anymore. Well you know. Everyone's airtime veto. Until the circumstances. Adam come on i'm very much anti trade review period. That's worse than a veto tracer. Just go through.

You're reading your emails from colin grade. The trade okay. I think this is a dynasty trade. Yeah it's a dynasty deondraye hopkins miko hardman and a fourth round rookie pick for. It's not a great traits. Which side you like better. Because i don't know what side he is. Hopkins hardman fourth round rookie. Pick the andre swift. Dj second round rookie pick. I think there's a real clear balance on trade of going for this year or not. I just mentioned a little bit ago swift as a guy that feels like you know the breakout could come at twenty. Twenty one is probably not gonna come in two thousand twenty and so hopkins is clearly the the wind for our the gopher now option. But if you're not really competing. This year and dynasty i would be willing to trade him away for the andre swift plus a dj chart plus a second round pick. I think that's a fair return. It just depends where you're at the standings in what what your long term outlook. Yeah i think it's a very very fair trade But it just depends where your timeline is at. So if you are getting the side and and you're looking towards the future and you're trying to rebuild a retool your team then i would go with the the side if you're trying to compete then obviously i would want the the ace. I think it's very fair. Trade from mario. What are the world. Do i do with jonathan taylor. Might keep her league. Do i keep holding on to hope that he turns a corner this year and can be a beast next year. Do i trade him for some kind of strong. Pull adam you. One hundred percent pulled all jonathan taylor questions. There's nobody. We're getting more questions about right now than jonathan taylor. You drop him and then whoever picks them up you kick them out of the league. Ben you still think he's gonna end up being a great player. Yeah yeah no i. I am absolutely not Basing an entire career evaluation On a player that was this good of a prospect with this good of a A profile on the first eight or ten games especially when his usage has been very inconsistent. And he's done some good things like he's been good in the past kim Almost but that was the issue which he isn't stone hands can't catch cod over ninety five percent of his targets he's averaged Like eight point eight yards target which is phenomenal for running back. He's been explosive. When using the past game is one fumble. That was a very high profile one last week. You've got him benched. But that was the knock on him. Coming in this guy's gonna fumble. The time is one fumble in one hundred thirty touches. That's not so yeah. No i'm i'm i actually see some some positives on taylor in the red flags. He's kind of shown the doubters that he can handle those those things you can catch the ball. He can hold onto the football for the most part. What's shocking is that he can't run for any kind of efficiency right now. I think that will you know the game will slow down for him. We've seen that i mean derrick henry. It took him like three years to be consistently efficient That the people of that. I have never been high on just another name that popped in my head for whatever reason but it's not it's not bizarre mouth sanders was the other one i brought up. It's not. it's not bizarre for a guy to struggle a little bit in his rookie year. It's just not that. Yeah all right. Let's talk about the broncos backfield this emails from rich noted that denver as a great playoffs schedule for running backs carolina buffalo chargers in vegas in weeks fourteen to seventeen while nice with the current split of touches. It doesn't help. Much but melvin gordon. Had court had his court. Date moved to the monday after week fourteen. It appears that. If gordon gets a three game suspension he may possibly serve it weeks. Fifteen seventeen if stars align. This could be an rb one added to your roster by low on phillip lindsay. I don't really agree. Because i don't know like his court. Date is december fourteenth. It's the. I don't know that he has a court date and then gets a three game suspension right after i'm not willing to. I'm not. I'm not willing to take that chance. Yeah and the other issue with lindsay is set. His upsides always limited pass catching because they just start using royce freeman on to pass block in passing down. So it's you know it'd be exciting to have lindsey as the clear starter in good run matchups. But i don't know that he'd be like bad explosive of a of a ceiling tight player But also melborn another great example for Jonathan taylor another great first round. Pick struggled in his first year. Everyone thought he was terrible and he's been very good throughout the most of his career. This is from bert gray. The trade give boroughs zeke and gronk get get cousins laughing at something else. Give cousins evans. And james robinson. Boroughs zeke and gronk for cousins evans and james robinson. This is a two quarterback league. So what do you think frank. I I'd rather have borough than kirk. Borough scheduled does get tough i would. Here's watson and murray already definitely helps kirk. Cousins is all right just some kind of injury insurance. Yeah i would prefer to have the mike evans. And james robinson side robinson to me is a clear. Top twelve running back rest of season. And i never thought we'd say this but his outlook is better than ezekiel elliott. Moving forward gronk. Borderline usable tight. End Mike evans is going to be inconsistent. But i like getting robinson in this deal. So i would give it a be all right next up from andrew should i trade away kenny. Golladay markey's brown and david montgomery for miles. Sanders golladay markey's brown and montgomery for mile sanders. I have connor and josh jacobs. I still have maclaurin shark. Juju and sterling shepherd. This is one of those trades. Where like it's a three for one. It's clear that the best piece is on one side but it's also overpay on the On the three side because all usable pieces. If it's a deeply so like league that matters a ton of me here. Those are not easily replaceable. Pieces than golladay is a good enough player when healthy that you know. Also adding markey's brown. David montgomery is a little bit of an overpay for sanders. If it's a shallower league. Montgomery is probably fairly replaceable. Because he's not like a high ceiling is more just a floor. Guy and marcus. Brown probably also fairly replaceable. Basically just a boomer was deep threat at this point then yeah you take the sanders side. If it's a shower early like consolidating the talent here and you still have three solid. Receivers chlorine charge and juju. So yeah. I would say john well. You should have graduate from john twelve team. Pr dynasty leagues. There's an owner who always sends terrible offers for my camera and or davante adams. He was talking about a smack last night about the one always sending horrible trade offers so i decided to send him another one. I offer him. My alvin kamara for his derrick henry travis kelsey and alan robinson to my surprise he countered saying it was a little too much and he offered me instead of robinson. A twenty twenty one. I and a twenty twenty three i. I couldn't pull the trigger fast enough because we're both in the top three in the league this year so he gave up camera at the end of the day. John gave up kamera. He got henry kelsey and a two thousand twenty one. I and twenty twenty three i. I think that's pretty good. I can't answer that. Doubt that is a slam dunk. Yes of course. You'd rather have kamara over henry pr. But you're getting the best tight end in fantasy so you don't have to worry about that. And you're getting two first round picks on top of it. That is a slam dunk from the pat in massachusetts. Dear nacho mike kim howard jimmy johns a good show good show but i stopped watching. I guess i'll try to pick it up again and breaking bad no out with. I'd take a few months back. Not it gave up. Cook and ridley get derrick henry and keenan allen cook and ridley for henry and alan because i really liked keenan allen but i also really like ridley i want Cook yup okay. Great from jacob. The trade give up herbert and dj more get derrick henry five point bonuses at one hundred hundred and fifty rushing or receiving yards. That's actually pretty relevant. So give up herbert and more and he already has cuyler. Murray so and okay. He doesn't need herbert. It's a super flexible. Body as good quarterbacks so herbert and more for derrick henry non non. Pr yeah. I like this. I like it a lot. I'm going to give that an a minus agreed from matt. Hey wayne verney santana and san antonio frank you know them well oh jets. Wide receivers grade the trade. I've been starting herbert over. Lamar jackson and i need a running back. I traded lamar jackson and levian bell. I got cooper kupp. The andre swift for me. That's great herbert's atop qb and your trading from a position of strength then right and you're getting. I think i'd much rather have swift and bell actually. And you're getting cooper kupp blurred dropping le'veon bell and i guess that's maybe a little bit of an overreaction but can't really blame them but yeah if something happens to you. Ap or carry on. Swift's gonna be monster. Like i would much rather have swept right now. Yep starter set questions from andrew dear mitch beanie franken. She's old school right yeah. I don't remember cheese the team. They called cheese. Okay now i remember. Yeah i remember you can tell i really truly remember. Nobody ever called you cheese. I would deem what's get out of here all right. I can't disagree with that from okay. So the question from andrew. Flex jd mckissic or diontae johnson. I kind of like mckissic. This is close. Yeah i i. I like mckissic too but i would. I just liked the anti more wide receiver. Three john brown or antonio brown john for me your john that game arizona buffalo game again going back to like imply totals. That's going to be a high scoring shows fair. I don't think you can trust antonio brown this quickly over. You know a key piece in in a game it should have a lot of points scored and he says thanks guys. Listen to the show. Every weekend while i do yard work. How much how much yard work you think i've done in my life. That's a i'd from mike. Pbr league ranked these running backs. Geo dobbins and duke duke gio dobbins. I'm gonna do dobbins. Gee what mark is probably going to play gio. Okay okay for matt nashville twelve team. Pr diontae johnson chris. Godwin zack. moss or allen lizard czar. D- sorry. i'll go godwin there. I'm gonna go deontay good match. I think a little bit less competition than godwin right now. But they're both in passing Word the the all the targets could go away from them and it wouldn't be that surprising. Yeah i from From brian oh you want my favorite stat of the week ben. Every wide receiver who's had more than sixty yards against. The panthers had double digit targets interesting. Yeah which kibe goblin has not had once this year from. Brian picked two running backs. Bell rose week fifty week fifteen. I'm sorry brian. I'm not going to read this one. This is the most insane question i've ever seen. Yeah i'm not going to read your did this. The mailbag year. This is the most insane questioning overseas or week. Fifteen running back and opportunity position. We have no idea what jobs are going to look like. And there's a list of like eight people and they're almost like now in good one of sony michelle row jo and ryan who. I'm going with right now. But i'm going to say this subject to change fifteen comes around. You're gonna have a lot more clarity. There's nothing to do with this right now. From rj. john. Shannon steve floyd
