"The aso yeah. He's he's very impressive. In its is bad news. I i have juju smith schuster in a few of my lease guy that i. He's a guy that i really liked. He's only twenty four years old and he's just he's very good at getting open and he's a guy that ben rothlisberger really trusted over the years. He's he's a very reliable. Pr guy you know. Saw is a bomber that he's out for the rest of the season. But that's going to be very good for nashi harris and deontay johnson. Also try chase. Play pool had a really nice week with ben finally hitting them on longer passes yet maybe that arms noodle as we thought i gotta get big bank credit. The craze hat a lot of people are gonna be quite say that of it but it is awesome line in a way and it is aging. You're not gonna be able to sustain that level strengthen no Putting your by that every guy basically for how many years maybe like eighteen. Almost seems like at this point. You know destined the get lot are at the back legislation. Unless you're a tom brady. Of course you can sustain yourself and get better year after your magically it's gonna be hard sell wasn't a seek late goal get that big. We don't know what his role is going to be like if he's going to be able to do that each week. Just the way that Tying i think without juju maybe we'll have opportunity mr. He's on a one year million dollar contract have believe i think he's gonna stick with the steelers but i'm not sure what than office burger retires. chance they go some other team. I think part of why he signed that one year deal was to give himself some flexibility. So i don't. I don't know if the steelers are gonna wanna pay him to bring him back when they have najji hers. They have chased klay pool. They have deontay. Johnson and they still have james washington railroads move out so i know if they even need Smith schuster and there might be a better opportunity for schuster to go to another team. It'd be a a number one receiver so personally as someone who owns juju in a couple of dynasty leagues. I would like to see him. Leave the steelers and become a number one receiver somewhere else. Like i said he's twenty four years old so i mean at twenty five. He's got a chance to have a really good second half to his career if he can get into a a good situation so we'll see what happens with them. There another guy that had a great week was portland sutton for the denver broncos at so he had that huge twenty six point week two weeks ago and then he kind of came back down to earth. But this thing. Yeah he had seven receptions for one hundred twenty yards. Twenty five points and a touchdown so he's a guy that has been looked really good the last few weeks. he's still pretty young Appears that that injury that he had hasn't been keeping him from being productive this season so him a nod. Deebo samuel where two guys that have been plagued by injuries in their career and both of them have just come out and been fantastic this season. I know diebels obviously a top five receiver this season. He's been fantastic by sutton's also looked really good and with jerry. Judy out and k j kamler..

I don't know if this is something to keep. An eye was the first time that williams played more snaps. He had three catches two games in a row with three catches. yeah i like williamsburg gordon. I just don't know gordon. Healthy pittsburgh is not allowed to touch down to running back yet. They've been they've been okay against running back six points but you know they've been solid We're trying to sit sutton. Are you nervous about noah fan. You guys have them ranked in the top eight jew stinks and he does. It feels really wanna start. Dawson knocks over noah fan. Talked me out of it. I would start him over no fan in ninety beer and just so. Y'all know i don't actually have that decision to make so people think that i just use this show to set my own lineup. But i'm just saying i would rank. I wanna rank knocks higher than fan so talk me out of it. I guess is the better way to say it but all right anyway sit ben you guys have nausea harris top. Twelve denver is suffocating. Running backs right now. Harris is doing nothing as a rusher. Is this a trap. Game is this look like could be totally crap game for nausea harris. It can actually be a total of crap game for but how you're getting away from at this point with what his role is in the passing game. And the fact that you know he did get his first rushing touchdown last week you know. He can still score. It is hard to get away from him. So you wouldn't start alex collins over him know about kareem hunt or nashi harris still harris. I'd sulfurous all right. don johnson. The only one. We're going to start for pittsburgh.

If they're all healthy deontay today I would go. Deontay chase higgins if he plays juju Boy ninety pr. Just flip flop but boyd over juju Peter okay and then. Let's say ready for this. The higgins is out deontay in. Would you start your marcello. Deontay johnson johnson Still downstairs okay. Joe mixon must start and that would be it all right would which. Dsp better as it stands.

But he's married he would be a stash guy if there were already like six guys we've already named and if you're if you're stuck and the entrees out that's a guy would look to a deeply The annoying he's playing more snaps in hebron alright atlanta at the giants and out of the game this is one of the four teams atlanta.

"deontay johnson" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Heel fans. Welcome back to the second. Let's ride. We know what it is on monday or the day after the game when we talk about winners and losers and this week i had five winners and losers. Now let's be clear you're probably wondering you're probably asking yourself at this time. How in the world could you have five winners. I felt that there were players still played well enough to earn in deserve some credit and you might also be thinking eight losers i could have twenty two losers eleven on both sides of the football. I can't. I'm not doing that number one. I can't do that number two. I mean that would be a disa- longest article ever but also it would become monotonous. There were some players that could bounce either way like ben rothlisberger for the second straight week. I don't have money either list. It's a situation where i thought ben didn't play great. The interception was awful. I think we'll all admit that he'd admit that he did admit that after the game. But i also think about. He didn't play poor enough that i would put them on the loser list. So let's go through this. We'll we'll hammer these out. Five winners eight losers. Let's get started with winners top winter. I should have had this individual in the winters column last week after the win buffalo. But i didn't do it. I overlooked and i apologize. Not overlooking this though. Chris boswell deserves to be on the winners list. He was money from fifty six yards out the longest field goal in heinz field history. That's impressive. he's been money in the bank. Ever since two thousand eighteen it was just a debacle of the season. I said this on the post game show. I'll say it here as well. The steelers could have easily easily. Just said you know what in two thousand eighteen he was. That bad boswell. Was that bad that they said we're done with them. Just we'll get rid of in the nfl trees kickers like a dime a dozen anyways. But they stuck with them. Maybe it was for contractual reasons. Maybe it wasn't for whatever reason. Chris boswell has made the steelers say boy are. We glad we kept that guy. Around another solid outing by chris boswell. He deserves to be on the winners list. Next nashi harris stat line ten rushes thirty eight yards but he adds five forty three yards. Receiving any did have his first touchdown receiving touchdown. I've believe those about twenty three yards. So g harris najji harris again the stats don't really bear out that he should be on the winners list. But again this thirty eight yards boy. Did he have to earn him. He had to earn every single one of those thirty eight yards. And i love seeing the five receptions for forty three. The steelers should use more in the passing game. Everyone talked about his dual threat ability and things of that nature. The one thing though if you think back to everyone wants to compare them lady on bell and rightfully so i get very similar in stature style stuff like that but the steelers used more in passing. They actually trusted him to run routes to catch the football. I don't think najji is there from route running standpoint but he certainly capable if they can get him the bond space that's when he does his damage if that's passing soviet najji harris's a winner in this game next winter be wide. Receiver deontay johnson. Here is his stat line. He had nine catches on twelve targets for one hundred and five yards a forty one yard long. You know. I didn't mention this earlier in the first segment but when we talked about injuries deontay johnson should have been brought up in a on a meaningless play. I'm totally meaningless. The steelers are down by two scores. Twenty seconds left deonte johnson catches a pass injured his knee. No one knows the severity of that injury yet. But it's still an issue. He goes over one hundred yards of that catch but boy. Is that a costly injury. If he has to miss any time but deonte johnson played well the miscommunication with ben roethlisberger is still a question but in terms of production he produced deonte. Johnson deserves to be on the winners list. Next winter in. This is a guy that was on my losers listen. The preseason did not play in week one but played in a big way in week. Two robert spelane cymbeline last week. The shin injury leading up to the game and play this week with devon bush out spelane played a lot and he really looked like he was comfortable again. The reason why he looked comfortable is he didn't have to cover. Everyone says well. Roberts spelane can't cover. We know this anyone who watches football watches. The steelers is he's not his forte. his forte is running downhill tackling. That's what he does the best. And even though spelane. I thought got screwed on that roughing the passer call or unsportsmanlike con. Whatever they called it. When derek carr is scrambling and he doesn't slide spelane hits him in the shoulder with his shoulder. It looked it looked worse than it was. But my goodness they they flagged him for a bad foul stat. Line explained twelve tackles. Eight solo tackles and one tackle for loss. Either robert splaine did a good job. He deserves to be on the winners list for this game. Especially when probably up until friday. He thought he was just going to be a reserve player. He gets thrust into a bigger role and he plays well the last winter before we go over to the losers columnist melvin. Ingram his stat line. He had four tackles one solo. Tackle one sack in one. Tackle for loss nova ingram was called just like alex. Highsmith was he was called on moore. Duty based on tj wads injury and. You could definitely see the both of those players kind of kind of winded at times. They weren't used to it with tj water in there. They have a three-person rotation they are fresh they're all able to rotate around without t. J. watt melvin ingram. Now highsmith and jamir jones were called on to doing more and more in that became. They became an issue but nonetheless. Melvin ingram gives his first sack. As a member of the steelers i thought he was disruptive At the same time. I think we were all hoping a little bit more production from both ingram and highsmith art. Let's go to the losers list. This is a long one. I'm going to start off with trae. Turner now we've learned a lot. Since the end of the game about the situation that happened. After the steelers scored harris had his first touchdown receiving touchdown trey turner was objected in. This was for what he spit on an opponent. Mike tomlin was absolutely irate. After this and i didn't understand at the time. And i want to apologize. I'm what am i apologizing for. I don't really want to apologize. I wanna make sure everyone understands. It's people that follow me on twitter. they were kind of giving me a hard time. When i had not seen the video of trae turner spitting. I had not seen the reports. Either and i tweeted mike. Tomlin has every right to be mad because they were two penalties at the same time offsetting penalties. One player gets dejected. And the other doesn't i didn't know the trade turn spit on someone come to find out. At least. According to the steelers that trade term was he is spit on first and then he retaliated. Well you know what. I'm a father. I'm also a schoolteacher and you we always say the person that retaliates is the one that always gets caught. That doesn't make what they did right. That's just the way it works. A lot of times trade turner's veteran. Mike tomlin said that in his post game press conference very even keel. He's not a young guy not a hothead so when he was that irate mike tomlin knew something was up while at the same time. If you're a veteran you have to understand that even if someone spits on you and i understand that that is the lowest of the low. You can't retaliate. You can't put your team in that situation. A reminds me of the search of the time. I believe it was markey's pounds. He's rookie season to two thousand and ten and there was a play in markey's pounds. He was getting kind of getting into a scuffle. After the play and mike maitama employ them to the side. And he's yelling at him. You can't do that you can't do that..
"deontay johnson" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"He got one of the assistant equipment managers to go out before and after every practice and during training camp. And now he's continuing into the season working on different drills. Not only the jugs machine but in catching tennis balls one handed. And if you see this if you see his touchdown in this game he's closely covered in the left corner of the end zone and the steelers need this play. They need this score to make their offense. Come alive levi. Wallace tips the ball. And at that moment instead of just sort of giving up on the ball you could see that deontay johnson extended both arms and somehow some way came up with the ball and dragged one foot to make sure that he stayed in bounds to me. It was one of the great plays of week one of this season and it was made by guy who spent all of last year in the doghouse because of all his drops going a little more macro on that win. Peter and i. I know i spent a lot of time around college football. I don't wanna make to collegiate. But that was a meaningful type of win for the steelers. Not just getting off to one star but many people the big bad steelers picking pittsburgh to finish bottom half of the afc north. You go to the team. That's very popular pick for very good reason to represent the afc in the super bowl and you come from behind and do that with that kind of second half. I mean that's that's not your ordinary win. I know these are grownups. These are professionals who are paid to win every sunday. But i have to think that they walk back into that facility this week with a different kind of feel different kinds of confidence then a lot of the other teams who are also wanna know agree totally and and it was really an interesting week for the afc north bengals with unlikely win over the vikings. And you know it really stuck out to me is look. Cleveland is a very good team. Cleveland is a top ten team in the nfl right now. But in the last twelve minutes of their game against the kansas city chiefs they went from maybe not controlling the game total but but being in the lead and having a good chance to win and then two plays happen. The punter drops an incredibly easy..

"Take because i do think you guys are right. Waller and kelsey are certainly good targets based on just the gap that they have from the rest of the tight ends but for me. I've been locking in a good amount of mark andrews in the fifth stack with lamar and the six and again. I you know we think the tight ends or actually a bit of a wasteland this year so you do want to get a good one Again i gave you three angles here but mark andrews tight england the fifth. All right. yeah. I'm cheating the system on the road fucking. And he can't limit ride team sean as his lot. And you're gonna let me talk about a couple of extra players earned it ride. You've heard putting the team on your back okay. I i still. Don't get why this guy is kind of just getting Getting the cold shoulder. We've seen him have drop issues but we've seen him play through those dropping issues. Deontay johnson the fifth round. Now one hundred away. Why don't you like deontay johnson atom because chase klay pool is a better receiver overall. He can do more on the field he can do more in the short he more in the long better physical tools and he doesn't drop the ball like third period french. I still don't count. Here's my i like. I like klay poll to and you. And if he's not available. I think either one of these is solid. Here's what i'll say to that. I don't know if Big ben could throw the ball along. i don't think he's rediscovered his shoulder in the off season we know his elbow issues from his self care. What i just see a guy that had one hundred forty four targets last year and i know they drafted nausea harris. I know they want to run the ball more but come on. This is a passing league. He's gonna get you a hundred and thirty targets. He's gonna catch a decent amount of them. I still think hound five for a guy that's going to give you. Plus one twenty-five targets is a a good fine I'm i don't have a lot of him. I'll say that. But i i do recognize. I probably need to have more steelers. Receivers in iraq and this is full point. Pr assuming that's what you play even half-point point pbr. He's just gonna get he's just going to get the why are the bengals. Receiver is getting more respect than the steelers received. I don't know. I don't understand that because the bengals have a worst defense. They have quarterbacks who can throw the ball further than ten yards down the field. And let's see running back to go to the red zone like joe mixon isn't being thought of like nausea ariza's in the red zone and we've seen as bengals offense now in back to back years produced three hundred target receivers easily with ease with no one at. Here's what i like about the steelers. Receivers indiana johnson klay poland. And you're right. Maybe klay pool is better. But i and adp his higher. I think deonte. Johnson you have a better shot of of getting him. Actually in the fifth someone's gonna fall in love with the guy. Nickname maple tron. They run those goddamn bubble screens. Which is infuriating. When you're actually watching real football if they don't run 'em right but they run them with big ben out of the shotgun the passes afford pass. It's one of the easiest one of the easiest points to get keep in mind is it is the fifth round. So you're looking for that upside and the touchdown upside probably isn't going to be there for any of the steelers receivers not named clay pool. Because they're going to go to fryer moving in the red zone they're gonna lay will and they're going to move and this is the thing you know. Yes it is. But at the end of the day one touchdown does the work of six catches. Even if you're playing dvr so you need to have guys who are going to find the end zone which is why the steelers receiver. You'd rather go play pool at this range. I'd rather go higgins because higgins more likely to have the high touchdown rate. You know you gotta think about things like that. That's has deontay. Johnson definitely is a cat ceiling because he's probably not going to the end zone us all right. Let's do it. Side bed t higgins the anti johnson. Just for fantasy prod he higgins all day. I know i know you're on gets. That'll be a six in sean. Yeah wendy higgins has more fantasy points than deontay johnson. This year npr. I'm a size. Two x the ta. Sending me i like. I like the idea that i will send you the deontay johnson jersey. Never yeah which should outscore hagans. I would not bite. I if i didn't buy it to rico jersey. I'm not buying any other teams jersey like the kids. Say.

"By yourself. Presented by pristine auction buyer sell robbie. Anderson will lead the carolina wide. Receivers in receptions for twenty twenty one yet ninety five receptions last year and you have essentially robbie anderson terrorist marshall junior and dj more. I believe it was very intentional. Here to put in carolina wide receivers as not christian. Mccaffrey at christian. Mccaffrey had more receptions. The previous two full seasons he was up over a hundred in both of them and would have been my answer. But i'll i'm gonna by this. I mean i think robbie anderson plays this role in the offense and if you wanted a pat on the but to the fact that they're committed to him in the possession roll. It would be three times. Yeah i mean they. They just signed him to a contract extension yesterday so while i do believe this will be a. Dj more breakout season. I don't believe that means he'll surpass him. In total total receptions digi more is very much the mike lavigne's to the possession godwin sort of dynamic in my opinion all buy. That's that's how it started out as well when it when it comes to the wide receivers. You've got a rookie really dominating the slot role and I i'm not gonna go and say tears marshals to lead this team with these other two wide receivers in dj more while he very well. I mean he's being drafted. I he will probably have the most fantasy points on the roster. He is my number one fantasy option. It doesn't come via the most receptions on the team. The way that they use robbie anderson last year i think is the way they want to continue to use him as more of a possession guy So yeah i. I mean we all know my love for robbie anderson. I do have him leading the team in receptions. Yeah he's he feels very safe at this point of just look what he did last year. Maybe maybe he Get some more touchdown variance going his direction. Which based off the amount of receptions and yards. He he really should but he he feels like a very safe. Pr type of a fantasy player. I wanna be clear. Because i think jason thinks. I don't like crabby anderson. But i had him on my roster last year for the entirety of the season. And i just experienced what high reception low touchdowns was like for. Robbie i would comp him to. He's the carolina deontay johnson and they have a worse quarterback than big ben. Okay yeah that's fair and so. I think that the odds of the touchdowns going through the roof aren't high but he's a great receiver. And you don't catch you know you talk about targets being a skill based metric. He had one hundred thirty six targets last year in this offense and then they said well we're going to reward you for that and build you a fundamental element in moving the football. So we're all buying that. Yeah this was an easy one hall man. I love robbie anderson that was by herself to put the brakes. Yes i mean you're innocent. Is i know who loves him. Whatever i know a guy who knows a guy. Hey come or leave them. I think i mean you've come through some of the final destiny jason. I mean clyde. Looks like he's going to start the year and You know. Cd inevitably will come off the covert list and over. This is great for cd the on the covert list all that does is it keeps him safe from injury because i love. This had no idea where that was over. Great was the quote. We all got continued it for what i'm saying. I'm saying he can't get injured on the football field while the hill giddy reserve list. And so that's what i what. I love about kelvin. Gracious you shaking your head shaking my head because That wasn't what i was saying. I know but you know. Sometimes you pointed the certain things a certain way and we just. We're just on guard. We're just protecting you. Yeah i mean we're protecting you from. We're using protection from us. I am a good meat shield. I am I will say that in a war. Grab my if you can lift me. I will stop those bullets to be fair our producers in kyle all win on red alert win. That sentence began.

"Time that ben rothlisberger has learned a brand new offense which last year tom brady did that. It wasn't a big deal but there's been so much stability throughout his career and he's talked about how tough that's been you know in in reporting to camp last week he's talked about you know it's it's a lot different. I've had to learn a lot of new things animate. Yeah just fixing something on it. And i don't know what to make of them. They're talking about this. This is going to be a really different offense. I saw a note from one of the beat writers about. I think it was a a screen. Pass that the johnson took seventy yards. And now as a you know one of the things they talked about was how they're going to incorporate more screen passes into the game more of ben rothlisberger under center rather than out of the shotgun. More play action. Which is something they really haven't done over the last couple of seasons which is all say that there's a lot of uncertainty around the steelers offense that doesn't mean the steelers offense is going to be bad but uncertainty is almost worse than knowing. The team is going to be bad. Because i think this team could go in a lot of different directions and could be an awesome offense. How confident are you. You both have deontay. Johnson as the top seed wide receiver and rankings. Barely be a. Okay so how confident are you that your ranking of the steelers wide receivers is accurate zero. I'm actually pretty confident. In that part. I i'm i'm very confident. Deontay johnson believe the steelers and targets. When he's healthy. That's that's the part. I'm confident last year. In terms of fantasy points per game it was really really close between deontay. Juju juju right yeah Juju actually ahead of them in format. You know what. I'm gonna say right put. Didn't johnson leave games early with injuries and it was fourteen point nine for fourteen point six for juju but deonte did leave two games with injuries. He was benched in another. He had so many more targets than everybody else when he was on the field healthy okay. Let's move on to our next thing here. It's heats favorites. That he's go. I really want you to help me work through this..
"deontay johnson" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"And why. Some of the steelers pasta success. These days is going to be taking from july. So the next play. That i wanted to look at talks about the birthday. They'd wayne chase quite. We've talked about try. Ten gene jim discussion years relevant. I wanted to bring him up with the jones. Eight johnson. you know for somebody. That being listened to us steel's steelers touchdown onto this week. You know that we talked a lot about him on the charlotte but not everyone makes that show not runs time to listen to it so we will cover them quickly. Johnson johnson. If you look at the and we talked about that loss wake your haste attain. He's a head of water. I ran wide. Reseda would have produced to date in in terms of an average for first round robin. But we obviously doing around three day. he was pick number. Sixty six are really toward the latter end of at lateran The draw round will so you know lottery into the top. Seventy five two hundred plays to an answer outside saga the told fifty crew today. He said six hundred yards twenty. Twenty was the holiday with nine hundred twenty three. He he had eighty receptions lost on one hundred forty four time. It's now we're gonna talk about pay. We're going to drop right. I thought the on touchdown under this guy was so talking around the fumble. Right in the fumble right. They really responsible for fading into some bass drops because he had five in twenty nine teen. He only had two osteo. That's actually an improvement for. But i just wanted that. The other thing we talked about on touchdown onto it you know. I think it's worth repeating his that. We know the bendon didn't have time much time to throw the football lost year. That trishaw means that ben was potentially rushing poces balls in some in some instances now on things i said was on sunday time in saturday evening. The newest was alive is that thing is is that whilst wide receivers you need to be prepared to not always being the perfect to catch the poss. I get's gonna put them under pressure. The other thing that janta johnson fell into the trap of lost year was very much playing. Really trying to think before you actually have the bull by trying to make the play before. He had the ball trying to make baked men for the bowl. Try to make step before we had the pool. You gotta catch the ball. And i honestly do think he's. He's moved on from that. I do think you'll improve this year. His yards per reception download on lost. You oversee he had more receptions because he went up from fifty nine in his rookie year to idei You know in that sort of difference of one yod intensive yards per reception so he averaged ten and a half loss. June eleven hoffy before he's touchdowns when universal caters about. Well he's average receptions per game went from three point seven to five point nine And he's and that would make sense. Given a mason rudolph devlin Has been roethlisberger. But is your saving. Went up to sixty one and a half of forty two so we had a twenty percent to twenty odd jumped. There is catch right went down. I talked about this on touchdown. I think he really needs to bay at that season. Five percent catch level to really make that difference. Know when we look at a rush perspective. He's rushing a handful of times would really wanna talk about those. But you know we saw what west punt returns from him. And we sold out from ryan mcleod in lou have to pump bertans and that's important because it means that we can use the own offense and he can fight brazil not real so we stopped getting into the injury territory. Deontay johnson sorry really. It's a elated. Happy birthday to deontay. Johnson it's a really excited for the season head on harking as a back plus nine hundred yards. If you can break the thousand great. I think if he can get plus ninety receptions if he can get no save some of those drops of more than one hundred and twenty targets. He's one hundred and forty four again on. I would very much expected. He's catching one hundred of those You know the season yod Sorry touchdowns i really think anything. I close if he can do ten plus even better with that extra game when it comes to rushing a drawl the safe you all the guys you know. Do some of those swipes intrigue prize. But however matt council wants to bring me the offense gripe why does seem perfect that route running a wanna seem catchable. I worry that making the plight. Because he's called spayed tabun absolute speight van and i think that that makes it a real tricky prospect off. Opposition teams particularly. When you've got to cover out. Juju smith jason chase Unin eric abram swimming from deontay we're gonna move across to the next players but who's coming up off the Bet day today and that's nice brutal that's all backup quarterback that's apply of it signed through Through next you that extension where he's going to be making It's about a four million dollar extension this thrown in by salary. One nine zero I some rudolph is someone that fans can. You're pretty much love to height in two thousand eighteen. He was a rookie. He didn't actually play in red. Should that year forced to to plane ten games and start eight games twenty nine. He's five and three from starting quarterback in terms of wins losses. In in that season is five and four and l. time. He played a bit a loss g kind that game against the browns. The only thing that i think was a blind in that game was the deception that he scored the scored he the hill out and where he falls to pause and i was really disappointed because i thought he played so well on that game and made a number of really kapot leaner k. Poces i felt like he'd really made nina driven that offense and you know while she completed about fifty eight percent of his policies not a loss as in in that game. He was around that so the number.

"That including myself going into draft kings. Dfs supposed to be jakobi. Meyers getting all that. But it's typical patriots football. You never know who's going to get what well who could have predicted came with throw for three hundred sixty five yards like honestly like i said that was surprisingly rush for six beginning of the year. He had one masterpass in game. One massive rushing game and then put up goose egg the next week. Right by myers hit three targets. He caught all three. Mir bird had seven. I don't i don't know if the defense focused on myers a little bit more but are you picking up bird. No no the bird. I'm not picking up bird. Bird bird bird. What i'm gonna wanna see. The bird fly at least one more time before. Well he can fly very fast. That's probably the biggest part of his game. But i'm leaving him on the bench as well. I don't trust cam. You let me ask you a question. Go on and you go to an amusement park. What's your favorite ride. Roller coaster. Speaking of roller coasters. How do you feel about the roller coaster. That is deontay johnson. Quite their coaster. You never know who's going to get the ball in the steelers dude. His last two games eighteen receptions two hundred twenty seven yards and a touchdown like he is the antonio brown the juju smith schuster of a couple years ago like him this year when healthy. He's the one. Yeah but is he healthy. That's a think he's already left games with him. He's healthy last week right. Yeah but next week he could step on a frigging penalty flagging the game. I don't know if you know diontae johnson's healthy you wanna play them. Obviously but i don't trust him in my lineup. Because he could get hurt. He's left three games already. Like you said like airplane them. Yeah yeah thank. that's what it boils. Zone is the anti johnson a top ten wide receiver the rest of the year if healthy yes right right there. If not healthy no i'm gonna give you a little more of a challenge on the eib analysts there. I know but that was very Here's a little deeper of a question on you. The judge and it is the trio of dj more curtis samuel and robby anderson. What's value with walker. What's their value with bridgewater. How do you figure out which one to play. Do you play all of them. Lean towards dj. More right now. Robbie anderson's dot is getting even lower than it could get before dj. Moore's get the more valuable touches. You play them all. You just hope that you don't have all three on your team. Yeah that would be terrorist. And you don't play them all if you have one of them. You play. 'em samuel. They're using and creative ways. Cmc's most likely out again this week. Robby anderson has almost guaranteed seventy eight targets a game. Dj more is getting the hot more high valuable touches know deeper. Blue walker is going to throw the ball. I like more and more with walker throwing it deep. But i like robbie because his volume is guaranteed robbie's fast enough to make someone miss and take it to the house on any plays well and samuel they i. I'll be honest. I like them all like you either quarterback all threes..

"Only muscles and two receptions for sixteen yards last week last three weeks. He has received eleven targets in the last three weeks. The first two weeks he's received twenty one targets. I'm concerned if I have Russell Gauge I'm probably dropping him. He's got really no value and I can't feel confident playing him. If Julio Jones no longer plays right now until I see something different he's sitting on my bench I'm dropping him. So I'm panicking Russel gage the Andre Johnson. Pittsburgh steelers fans out there. No the pain Dante Johnson. Last two games has been basically MIA two weeks ago gets a concussion, and then this week is back returning kicks and he suffered a lower back injury. He finished the afternoon with point eight points wide receiver eighty seven. wide receiver fifty, nine on the year. Only. Benefit is I two weeks. He had twenty three targets. Six. And eight receptions in those two games you gotTa love the target share when he is healthy however, he has not been able to stay healthy the last couple of weeks and that I'm panicking slightly on that I, am because when he's healthy, he's great but is health a concern. For deontay Johnson moving forward I'll tell you right now if I'm the Pittsburgh steelers I'm done putting him back there to return kicks I watched him twice this weekend get destroyed on kicks in on the second one or on punt returns rather, and on the second one he gets injured I'm done having back there. He's too valuable offense of asset and he's clearly injury-prone at this point do not put him back there to return punts. Zach Ertz tight end thirty, five this weekend. Yep I'm smashing that panic button on Zach Ertz he's only got one touchdown on the year despite being basically the only target that Carson Wentz. has at his disposal and his highest output so far on the season's only fourteen fantasy points. So yeah, I'm panicking if I have Zachary's right now. Dalton Schultz. Dalton Scholtz tied for Titan thirty five this weekend with one reception. One point six. Fantasy points. And I'm panicking because no Dak Prescott. What does that mean for Dalton Scholtz? Am I see A decreased of targets, a decrease of receptions touchdowns. Capability I mean I'm really concerned from adult and Schultz owner that it might be time to possibly get rid of him. Now is moving to some top waiver wire fines for week six I up on a roster here Chase Klay Pool only in four point, eight percent of fantasy leagues like we mentioned before his big play capability size in team that loves to pass everything the love hear about Chase Klay Pool..

"The Texans are up 21 to 17 to Shawn Watson has two touchdowns in 202 yards through the Air James Connor 41 yards on the ground. Randall Cobb for the Texans does have a touchdown and 61 yards so far, so the Texans Doing well against a really good Steelers defense. It is 21 to 17 right now, about 11 minutes left in the third quarter again. Texans up 21 to 17. We have an update, though on the Steelers, they're wide receiver Deontay Johnson has a possible concussion. Also fullback Derrick what I told you about this earlier hamstring. Both have been ruled out for the remainder of the game against the Texans. So unfortunately for the Steelers, bitten by the injury bug and unfortunate for the Watt family, who had three players, not one, not 23 players from the White family playing in this Texan Steelers game, unfortunately one is out with a hamstring. The rest of the game. What, all that to say anything at the half years we're heading into the second half of all these games? That surprising is they're the one that doesn't know what to order from. Subway commercial says. Come here every day. I love that commercial. I'm a sucker for commercials, though. I love them inspired as I'm watching right now, I mean, there's some stuff that really sticks out like the Eagles. I'm just how poorly that first half is gone, and I'll tell you what I like. I think that stands out to you know, I'm saying, like you said earlier. Philly is lucky. They don't have fans there because you see how they treat Santa Claus like these guys. Whatever nightmares these, these booze would permeate their soul. If they were able to hear them, So I'm looking at Minnesota them turning things around. Potentially. I think the Raiders Patriots game is poised to have an incredible finish here in the second half is those two teams and started find a little bit more rhythm. Biggest story to me in the one o'clock Slater games. It's about four bills. Yeah, I agree. Buffalo bills are If they can hold form here and continue what they're doing. Improved three and with a convincing win over a very good Rams team, and it speaks to a little bit of, um what the Rams have to be offensively. Which feels like perfect when they go off script. They don't have that ability. Defensively. There's Ramsey. There's Donald. But what else is there? And I look at Buffalo. I say This seems physical on both sides of ball they've got Ramsey hasn't been good today. They've got speed, and they've got one of best quarterbacks in the NFL. And I truly believe that in Josh Allen is that kind of good. Can you see that screen? I don't want to read that update. I can't read another update. Limpet Wow, 40, Niners tight end Jordan. Reed has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game. Today's game. Wow, that's some sort of leg injury and ankle and ankle me. I now have to go on a deep dive of injuries to starters for a team through Three weeks of a season. The 40 Niners have to obliterate that record. This this is this is not okay like something's wrong. I don't know if it's that artificial turf like you and I were talking about this is not okay. This is too many. It's It's so weird. It's weird like it's constant. That's two starters. Now they've lost today. I think they lost four last week. Let's start with people today. Insect game and, yes, it's at the exact same stadium last. I'm not even exaggerate. I think you almost get to a point where if you're the 40 Niners and say, I'm not going back here we're taking no, we're taking our team were walking off the field like we're done. I'm not even trying to be funny or like a like Completely like radical here With this you are losing. You were decimated your roster playing on this field. There's been They've tried to examine it. They've looked at it. There's another rash of injuries again today. I mean, this is Insane If I'm any other team that's getting prepared to go there and weeks moving forward. Yeah, you could like file a lawsuit against the turf at MetLife..

"Campbell seventeen percent. Cordell Patterson sixteen percent rostered but he's a running back at them. Yeah. But he is also eligible wide receiver. Wouldn't that be interesting if Cordell Patterson ended up being a thing for the bears and you could start him at receiver even though he's more running back that happened in the middle of the year a couple years ago and then the. There was talk about switching his position midseason that was. Yeah. No, there were a lot of. Tops. CBS CBS has ineligible at both. James Washington eleven percent rostered. There's just like no thought that the guy who led the steelers receiving last year could actually be the number to seaver on the team. Seems like a problem. That's that's kind of a mistake in my opinion I. The the issue is obviously Klay pooled their second round pick is more similar to the point and just made about Westbrook. He overlaps Washington skill set more than Deontay Johnson's, and he's probably GonNa take some snaps from Washington but that's too much certainty he should be on more than this. Okay and as far as tight ends go rob Gronkowski also I want to say Van Jefferson is eight percent a deep league. There's been some Van Jefferson Buzz we've seen them use three receivers before. So I like that. I couldn't really find. EG tight ends we're over rostered maybe Gronkowski at ninety three percent jared. Cook. But. But Jared Cook I think is a week one starter as he dave I agree. I think he is. Yeah. So Yep. Four touchdown touchdown. Yeah. I'm not going to spend much time on tight ends. Well, you know I think when we preview the Games and you just want some streamers cook scored. I think cooks. Gordon both games against Jags the books last year by recall he might have. Looking at the linebackers and safeties and wondering why they're really going to dedicate one of their great linebackers covering Jared Cook I don't think they will. It'll probably be a safety that's a match that I think reasonable even okay. those would be your overall players some things I want to promote real quick. We have a mailbag every we record on Friday but airs on Saturday so you have an opportunity throughout the week to get your questions in but you're gonNA they're gonNA be starters questions you're GonNa want more trade questions.

"He was a lesson and you know Chris in Paris impressive the first game against the eagles they couldn't cover first game as a rookie and it was up and down quarterback play he really produced. They don't have a whole lot of skill guys other than him in Washington. Sure. You know I'm always somewhat skeptical of of which is not the you're. The first argument made is that he's really good and the second argument is, but who else is there on the depth chart I'm always like well, if the guy is really good. I don't particularly care. They'll find someone else Stephen Sims. We'll get you know fifty targets and we'll be a we'll be bummed. But the point is that Terry maclaurin is is the truth and I put him third on this list probably because he's the one I'm closest in lockstep with on the market right but I have him if I were doing in the order in which I like them, I certainly am drafting Chair McLaren before I'm drafting deontay Johnson. I. He he is legit wide receiver to he has the potential to be a wide receiver one for fantasy. I could easily say maybe someday, deontay Johnson could grow up and be what maclaurin looked like it is rookie year he just he has that thing of a combination of really good deep speed I think he's quicker than day. Johnson's extremely quick and he's just got that look about him of coordination of just. Working his body to be where the ball is supposed to be thrown when the balls in his name vicinity of boxing is out despite not having a big strong short guy. But he's certainly not one of those big physical guys he he's really has the potential to be fantastic. It's funny. I watch every single game every single week. That's what my podcast is was just saying what I saw in games and I loved that Rendezvous Barbara got to do so many of Washington's games last year because I run is really good. One of my favorite Color announcers and I Always, paying attention Ron Day latches onto a guy especially because I'll hear them week after week after week. And he kept saying this maclaurin Guy this Terry maclaurin guy he can't be stopped they can't they have to be his way and it immediately, my my radar is up like Rodney knows what he's talking about and give him a second look and man I I, I, said I think he's the truth. Let's get to some guys. You're not as high on and people should stay away from draft gangs fast when you're playing this season I one I kinda noticed this is well David Montgomery the running back for the bears you know first of all, I'm not very high on their offensive line second of all. I know he wasn't a speed guy, but I was still expecting more last year when I watch bears games..

We'll see where that goes. deontay Johnson of the steelers also on zoom yesterday and talking about a number of things as he anticipates. An upcoming NFL season. Interesting to hear Johnson Talk About how he interacted with Ben Rothlisberger. Last year Rothlisberger wasn't playing for very long, but he was around after his surgery, and as it turned out. Ben Rothlisberger Deontay Johnson didn't talk a whole lot initially put They are in close communication these days. Out, saying minced aren't talking Had to come improve. Everybody can play. Down not just like a bus whatever so? Last season on started, contributing might make raise. Start standing make. And he started interacting with me more and more. Signs. Building Trust with one another no. Almost every day now so. That's my guys. We got we got victims of this. Term on the super. Bowl together. I. Van On unblocked him on twitter. That really helped. Ford. Ben Such a weird dude, you know. He probably had some stipulation like I'm not GonNa talk to the rookie receivers until my beard fully grows in. A couple of details from that Johnson Zoom. You guys call posted a picture after last season ended from hospital bed, and he said kind of cryptically that surgery went well, and he was on the man that kind stuff He said that he had a groin issue tight groin from probably around the second game of the season last year. was. It was hard to see any groin. Issues detectable when he was taken that punt back for a touchdown against the cardinals late New Year. He said he's well on the way to put that behind him, and he talked about his goals for the upcoming season. Assuming there is one.

"Don't worry about it. I bring it up every single time. I'm dave scofield are statman extraordinaire how did end up with the highest grade on offense according to p._f. Logan de lorenzo answers that with p._f. Is a choke. I look i i have a. I have no idea on that but what b._f._f. Not best friends forever but brian football focus says that your mason rudolph was the showstopper. The other night in devon hodges your number two <hes> so let's go with b._f._f. On that one let's say deontay johnson might take eli switz- spa looked johnson has a job on yeah. Everyone seems to love <hes> spencer tony. Here's a question for you and this is a tough one. Jeremiah young wants to know. Who do you think the steelers new receiver coach will be. I'm gonna i'm gonna say <hes> <hes> <hes> last week. I thought maybe they would <hes> have have fichtner filled the role for the entire year like that. You're doing with keith butler but as jeff hartmann said he's already still to quarterbacks coach so i'm thinking they're gonna they're gonna go out and and the reason why they've delayed. It is trying to <hes> finalize things with with the <hes> the former coach <hes> man. The guy retired two. My gut tells me they're gonna. They're gonna bring him back. At least for one year. Serve a sort of a transitional thing until they you know that was a big shock for everybody and now they're trying to you. You know. Get your ducks in a row so i think they're going to bring in a guy who who knows the players know who's done it with them before so he's probably gonna be richer man. You know what that's a possibility and look you still have a. I don't think he'd do anything major this year. At this point you raise sherman in helping out which he was helping out beforehand. I don't expect one to be named at this point. I just i just kind of expect expect them to go ahead and maybe have some of these veteran coaches help out unnamed that i heard of a very interesting name that i heard of. I think he's employed though the assistant receivers coach for the carolina panthers is the guy we all know jericho khatri <hes> <hes> but i think they address that in twenty twenty really i it a this is. This is a committee bad. You think spence resor returner ask captain underpants. You know what i i really think spencer's return man. He returns punts. He returns kicks. I think another guy you have the team is johnny holton. I actually think johnny houghton has a chance to make the team because he's your d- h._p. Type just like they use stories hayward bay. Here's an interesting thing popping up on live chat. What about krief so dante moncrieff on crete was brought in to be the number two thomas white says steelers don't rank wide receivers krief in washington will likely be at the same position in a rotation. They very very well could be. I mean you could just see guys on the field all the time <hes> and that's pretty much what you see and it could be those three with the other guys. It's like a like a <hes> dante johnson who had who had a nice game settled down after that muffed punt so there's there's this. They've got a wealth at wide receiver. That crazy being wants. No should dirty red make the team cash. That's tough off. He's playing like a guy that should make the team right now. <hes> there's really no. I mean it's hard to it's hard hard to get rid of a guy like that with the preseason that he's had through two games. Ryan kellerman says nobody would trade for eli. You know what i mean. People throw stuff around. Pick around for anybody but i think a lot of teams will just wait agency who gets cut..
