"The middle cuts to the outside. Take want Barkley across the field to the sideline stated bounds and parsley takes it all the way touchdown. The question is, if you drafted Jaquan Barkley in the first or second round of your fantasy draft. Should you start him today at home at MetLife Stadium against the Broncos, as the Giants are, in my opinion, a woeful looking offense without Sequana Barkley? I think if you drafted sake when Barkley and either the first or second round or you spend big money on him and your salary cap format There is really no reason not to use him today, he probably will be limited in touches in regards to what he will be seeing throughout the course of the season. But even if you only sees, let's call it 12 to 14 touches. He's such a dynamic player. He's been clear to get out there. I think the Giants are going to need to rely on him. So in all likelihood, unless you're playing in a very shallow league It's hard to envision putting him are keeping him on your bench right now. Again. It may not be exactly what fantasy players want to hear. Because if you drafted him early, certainly you want him to be that Bell cow back that you anticipated in being But the truth is that I'm not going to go out and advise you not to play him. None of us know exactly what he's going to get carries wise, right? It's not really in the Giants benefit to tell us the fantasy players what they're going to do. They're trying to beat the Broncos today. They don't want to tell the Broncos. Hey, even though we've been limiting his contact in practice Oh, don't worry. He's going to be full go. It's certainly possible Despite all The caster nation about whether or not he will get a full workload. He may still see 18 to 20 touches and it just again. It's not in the Giants. Best interest will tell us that situation. So I would say if you have say Kwan Barkley, I would certainly go ahead. And use him today. Unless you're looking at some really stellar options on your bench it running back because otherwise You're just in all in all likelihood, if he does get 10 to 12 touches gives you 70 80 yards and a score. You're just going to lament the fact that you left him on your bench for the opening week of the season and again Unless you're looking at some very enticing options. I cannot go ahead and endorse putting him on your bench and week one. Alright. Seconds on the agenda today, the Ravens backfield. Boy Tyson Williams. Come on down, but be very careful in the process right? Baltimore's backfield has been cursed early so far, suffering three season ending injuries to J. K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill. Williams is the early favorite to lead the team and touches but the Ravens subsequent free agent Fleury, if you will, the activity of activity of signing between Levian Bell, Devante Freeman and Latavius Murray. That cannot make Tyson Williams fantasy owners out there. Breathe easy. If you're asking me to figure out what's what here. I don't think anybody can actually tell you with any degree of certainty who's going to be the lead back when this season actually gets rolling? I would say Tyson Williams today, though, is a solid RV to flex spot. However, going forward once Levian Bell and Latavius Murray in particular get up to speed with the playbook. I would not be surprised if either of those two do see more carries as the season progresses, and Murray certainly seems to be the guy who would be the likely goal line. Back when he's in there kind of the role that Gus Edwards some majority of last year, But let's be honest truth be told. The Ravens are going to be reliant on Lamar Jackson. For the most part, certainly down near the goal line. Lamar Jackson the possibility to steal some of those goldmine touchdowns and his rushing ability is going to really Be what carries this Ravens offense if they're going to be productive team, so I would say if you're wondering, are speculating on Bell or Murray like, Let's I said his name Devonta Freeman, throw him to the side. He's not worth an ad right now. I have to see a lot from him before I would go ahead and add him to my fantasy team Levian Bell, though again, he kind of looked cooked. The last few years now, and I don't see why his running style in particular would necessarily complement Lamar Jackson. So I'm not really buy into the Levian Bell hype, either. Tyson Williams seems to be the guy who has the young legs. Who is the good bet, too. If anybody is going to be a very good Fantasy player. I would probably put my money on Tyson Williams. But Latavius Murray of the others is the other guy who intrigues me a little bit because he was the last running back of the three free agents who has been effective. So I would say, you know if I'm ordering that's Tyson Williams, Latavius Murray and then a dark throw on Levian Bell. Next up 1st and 10 40. Niners backfield Raheem Mostert. When he's healthy, he can be a fantasy monster out there, but The 49 ers drafted Trey sermon out of the Ohio State University in the third round for a reason. So I'm curious to see how this one unfolds because the 49 ers offense what Kyle Shanahan does as a play caller is absolutely brilliant, and so if either or both running backs Sees a large portion of carries, which I think is certainly possible for both. They're going to be guys who are going to be locked into most fantasy lineups. So I think there's a possibility where both moisture and sermon are productive fantasy players so something to keep an eye on and something I'll be watching for today. Number four Austin Ekeler is ascension into the fantasy elites at the running back position. Is predicated on him being on the field and the treasures haven't played a game yet, and he's already missed multiple days of practice this week. Now the hope is that he'll be out there and ready to go. But I will say It's doesn't bode well. If you made the bet on a clear in the first round this season already that he's dealing with injuries. It's never been about the ability for Ekeler. It's more about can he Deal with the pounding that a true fantasy workhorse back needs to give you and because of his side size. I think it's fair to question whether or not he can be somebody who Lives up to that. I would say you know what? If if Austin Ekeler has a big first week. He's somebody you may want to go ahead and throw out there and consider potentially Just just dangling out there in front of other running, but owners and seeing what is available if he has a big week this week, because I'm telling you, I'm concerned about his ability to hold up over the long haul of the season as a featured back Number five in Indianapolis. Carson Wentz has had a tumultuous offseason, but Frank Reich said on Friday he is not expected to be limited in any way now, once his fantasy impact may not be the biggest factor for him in particular. But his success I think is critical to productive seasons for Jonathan Taylor, Michael Pittman, and I'll even toss in him. Heinz, who just signed a big extension with the Colts, I believe was yesterday if not Friday. Um, making him with a top 10 highest paid running backs in fantasy football, So I'll tell you My read on that is that no, he minds if you were able to snag him and PPR format, I think that just goes to show you. The Colts think he is going to be a productive player. They didn't Go and sign him, too, and make him one of the top 10 high speed running backs in the league Now certainly we can quibble on a different show about Running backs getting paid these days, but now him, Heinz is somebody who is in the plans for Frank Reich and the Colts offense, So.

"And mom said I know certainly in our household. Great job. You make it a little more special. All right, let's get to inbounds out about here we go. Here we go. Anything can happen in sports and often does what's right. What's wrong and who's just crazy. We decide inbounds and out of bounds now with Tiki and tiered. Sam, wait, what I say he said, Uh, I don't know what those shades are doing on. Well, you know what they are. It's too early isn't getting ready, bro. Making sure they still fit. It's been a year I wear my sunglasses and my so what? Can Who sings that song, Corey some, Corey. What Now, Corey Seager, not Davis scored. Corey Davis. Corey, Don't forget the last name. Corey Hart. There you go. You go speaking with I'm surprised you haven't commented on my mark Sanchez wears for TV. Okay, I'm gonna make funny on TV. So the whole world that's coming Well, a team that doesn't have to worry about Mark Sanchez is the Baltimore Ravens, and they obviously suffered some terrible injuries this offseason, losing Marcus Peters tune a CL and seeing their three top running back. All go down for the season in a span of two week. Well now, Baltimore has added two time all pro Levian Bell two time pro bowler Devonta Freeman and just picked up former ST Latavius Murray. Who was a surprise cut on Tuesday in New Orleans for not restructuring his contact. You cut So in or out. You do believe the Ravens would be just as good with these three veteran backs as they would have been with their now injured younger back. You know, I got to tell you because Murray is now part of that trio. The answer is in bounds here if it was just Levian Bell. And it was just Devante Freeman and you know some other guy off the street that nobody really knew, But it was a body was depth. I would say now there will be a drop off. And quite frankly, there might even be an appreciable drop off Latavius Murray could play. Let's Davies Murray is a good player. Uh and I'm curious to see what Latavius Murray is when you have the threat that Lamar Jackson is running the football. He's never had that nobody has only one Lamar Jackson so Inbounds. I think running will still be the strength of this team. Mark Andrews in the Red Zone. They've got to get some of those young receivers run down more. Some of those Some of those guys banked up. It's been a horrendous summer now into the early part of fall for the Baltimore Ravens, But I do think that this is a very savvy recovery by an outstanding organization. But Murray's the one that tips this in the favorable column he could play in bounce. Are you in? Or are you out? Well, the big 12 meeting official yesterday announcing they have accepted the applications for BYU. Houston You CF in Cincinnati to join the remaining eight teams once Texas and Oklahoma lead Now. There were plenty of other options on the table for the conference, including teams like Boise State, Coastal Carolina Army, Navy, Liberty, San Diego State S M U South Florida and Memphis. And to be on this is actually talked. The big 12 might be looking to expand past 12 teams. Okay, And some of these teams are still in the middle. Big 28 big 28 so inbound data bounds until they do add more teams. The big 12 did select the best four teams to join their conference. I really like the inclusion of BYU. That's that's a brand that will Will resonate and making some money. I do like the addition of Cincinnati. I like the addition of central Florida. Don't love it as much as the other two. Okay with the addition of Houston don't like it nearly as much as the other two. And I even like you. CF better than Houston. You know, I think First of all, coastal Carolina to me is very interesting. As his liberty by the way, liberties quarterback might be the first quarterback off the board in the NFL draft. In case anybody missed that, you know, we keep talking about rattler and howl from U. N. C. Look at the kid from Liberty, and that's a program that's been pretty good with freeze and even before that, by the way, but Coastal needs to be somewhere south. I I They're not going to be in the A C C anytime soon, so that doesn't seem incredibly viable, but Carolina to me with the growth of the Grand Strand. I was great. When game day was out there a year ago. That was pretty wild when BYU went there, So I think Costa would have been interesting. I also listen, Army I mean, you have a chance to add an arm cert like an academy. So your portfolio and everything that comes with it. The respect the immediate cash A I would have gone for Army who, by the way is good and by the way, might make an appearance on shore opportunity a little later, just saying Stay out of bounds. I I think it's good. I think they could have done better. Are you in? Or are you out? Put some money on army may be showing up in sharp Tierney. I'll tell you I have a premonition. I feel like it might actually happen. It might and I have ridden the Black Knights of the Hudson Valley to victory. Not all the time, but if I've taken them 10 times, maybe more over the last bunch of years. Probably 73. Maybe 811 usually win with army. That's karma. That's right. The Boston Red Sox are in the midst of a troubling covid outbreak, so maybe not good karma there with nine people in the organization testing positive and the 11 others. Sitting out with other symptoms or close contact. Chris Sale actually just tested positive today as well. This week, outfielder Hunter Renfroe made quite the damaging claim about mobs approach. To their situation on W E I in Boston.

"Finale in Atlanta, with the winner taking the three game set there and Eric Fetty starting for the Nationals. He's pitch longer than six innings only once in the last 2.5 months.

We're now in the bottom of the first inning, the Dallas Cowboys in Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in a little over an hour. I'm going to say bucks by a million. This isn't going to be close at all the Washington football team again without Curtis Samuel on the practice field because of the lingering groin injury. But that's nothing compared to what's going on in Baltimore. The Ravens already without J. K. Dobbins and Justice Hill are running back here. Gus Edwards is now lost for the season to a torn A. C L. Marcus Peters also feared to have suffered a torn A C L in the same practice, which would end the veteran corner season as well.

"Well Urban is much more of a scatback type. He's not big they run like five streams. He's more of a returned man. Meanwhile Dexter Williams. He's more of your traditional running back but schneidman has said he has struggled to catch the football and practice and on top of that he blew a block that led to a block punked last week. So they don't trust him in pass-pro or as a receiver. So they've never really hurting there at the position again, if this game stays as is they might not be dead. The play Aaron Jones, but they also might not have a choice but to play Aaron Jones. So if I had to pick one of these guys presuming Jones doesn't play my preference would be for urban. Got it. Okay. Keep an eye on the status of that one was hard as well. By the way, Matt LaFleur said this week. He thinks was artist close to coming back from his core muscle injury. Oh, okay interesting. Very interesting. All right, let's get to some of this Sunday 1:00 games will start with the Giant and George Washington. You know, I am not sure his fantasy worthy Joe. I think Wayne gallman looks decent. Yeah computer has you know, he's one of those guys the Goldman when he came out of college, I as a prospect I was like, you know, he's not flashy but he does all he does all the things that he does well or pretty obvious he runs hard he pass protects and he catches the football. Those are the things he does. Well so he can get he can get it done a little bit there and and frankly, I mean, I don't know what maybe they go back to Devonte Freeman if Devonta Freeman's available, but I consider gallman kind of a dog. when Darby to if Devonta Freeman doesn't go anything else for the Giants or else Washington Sterling Shepard has kind of taken over in my mind. The number one fantasy receiver here off over Darius Slayton Daniel Jones has I think at times he's looked real. He's almost like Carson Wentz right now, you know you watch the plays where he doesn't make a completely boneheaded turn over. Okay, this guy looks pretty good. And then the other plays it looks like he's actively trying to turn the football over. So Daniel Jones is not not really a fantasy option right now. Washington's defense is pretty good though on the back end they are exploitable. I think throwing Shepherds a wide receiver three and given the state of the tight end position, even though he hasn't produced Big Numbers Evan engram I think is like second in in tight end targets. He's probably thought you just have to have in your lineup at this stage moving on Washington coming off of the body. I didn't do anything at the trade deadline, you know, it's weird cuz they've got McClure. Logan Thomas Antonio Gibson, I mean they've got some guys that are worth at least talking about. Yeah, they do Antonio Gibson is an rb2 all the way. He's got some physicality to them. I think that's something you expected from a guy who was a converted wide receiver, but he absolutely has some physicality to him. So Antonio Gibson's him a running back to Kyle Allen probably not on the streaming radar Terry McCormick catch a shadow from James Bradberry in this game. That's a problem for him. And again, like I said Logan Thomas coming off by he's there kind of their de facto. Number two receiver here Rob Gronkowski scored a touchdown against the Giants and not to compare Logan Thomas to Rob Gronkowski, but I think that Logan Thomas is somebody who you can plug and play use for DFS. I think he's going to be somebody who could get seven eight targets from from Los Alamos you.

So they sorry? Okay. So let's get to the Giants injury report. It's a little extensive than the box, but that's because the offensive line is all on there. So offensive tackle was Cameron Fleming was held out Thursday returned Friday. I know. Run a vehicle. We got a little photobomber guys for everyone that can't see it. Devonta Freeman has an ankle injury. He has not practiced all week. Who's the other running back on the depth chart? Let me see the fact that the vaunted Freeman Wayne gallman. Okay, it was the starter and in Dion Lewis. Yes, Devante was the starter. He has been since they picked him up after Shaquille. Saquon Barkley wind down you guard Nick Gates. He was held out Thursday full practice Friday will Hernandez is on the covid-19 with offensive. Lineman. Shane.

Darnay Holmes had a neck injury. He was limited Thursday and Friday and then wide receiver Sterling Shepard has a shoulder slash toe injury. He was limited Thursday and Friday.

I'm going with her 41 points on us again, 2:17. That's basically what I was going to pick it is. Yeah. Okay. I'm going to do 42. I think 6:42 to 9. I think they'll get three field goals.

That's how the Dallas Cowboys did it they suck. But they got a lot of Fades. What was the last time the Dallas Cowboys were any good? I remember like slightly above-average. I think that the vision is sucked for so long. Yeah, I thought well since the Eagles won the Super Bowl and since then it's like the whole division is in a Superbowl hangover health of flu.

"But he is also the kind of guy and I hate to say this because I think he's a great kid and super talented is they could also one year B the 14 into team and he throws four picks in the championship game, and that's just the variance that comes with him. But in the NFL wher you just need a guy that is capable of winning you the Super Bowl. He is one of those guys. And I think that's what people need to realize is the most important attribute who is the better career just because they're in the same draft classes at Josh Allen or Lamar Jackson? If I was betting I would better, Lamar. Um And I think that I'm worried about both of them getting hurt. I think that Josh is a little bit more reckless than labarre. I think that Anybody that drafted Lamar Jax would be able to come in this. Lamar is not running as much this year. Um and I think that I used fantasy sometimes to go. That's interesting. He's staying in the pocket. More thinking 37 passes last game. Uh, Omar was not doing that He would really run for 15. And he'd throw for 25. But now he's like throwing for 37 running for five. And I think that it's I would definitely go Lamar mainly. Also, I think both are very well run franchises. I think that I would put hard ball a little bit ahead of McDermott. But I also just think that the system man, Dave all they're really both set up for success. I would go Lamar because I believe he's a little bit faster on I believe that he's ah, just a better athlete overall. Talking, Adam left. Go right now. In the Zach Gelb show who should be interested in love Ian Bell. Do you have a few teams in mind? The names that popped up to me. I think the Patriots are interesting because they collect two positions, running backs and linebackers because they know that as the year goes on, there's nutrition and sometimes you find a Kyle Van Noy or Corey Dillon. I would say Chicago is interesting to Rekha treat Cohen goes down. I don't think they really want Cordero Patterson to be the backup running back, and I think that that offense could make a lot of sense. I think India's interesting even though they do have a lot of guys already. I know they were interested in possible human free agency. I don't know how how bad her relationship is. But Pittsburgh needs him. I think that he would be a huge upgrade over Benny smell, and I think he'd be a really good one, too, with James Connor and he goes literally everything. So if it ended on bad terms, I don't know. Ah, and then you know, I can also see him if he wants to stay in New York. Maybe go to the giant. I think that you know, we've seen some flashes from Devonta Freeman, but it's really hasn't been anything special, and I think he's an upgrade on everybody else. They're so those would be sort of the five teams that jump out to me right away. The Pittsburgh one is fascinating just because of how ugly it did, and just they throw a little juice here into the rivalry, and I know the guys hurt right now with Nick Chubb. Wouldn't it be something if Cleveland signed love Ian Bell? Sure, I just I think if there's one franchise that doesn't want a new addition to mess up a year's worth of like jelling together like Cleveland, Cleveland is the reason that so many people bet against the Bucks this year where it's like, Oh, we had a new person in it ruins the flow. I would say this, though. Good. Levian now experienced Adam gays and the Steelers experienced Antonio Brown. And I would wonder if both parties had enough experiences with somebody that was worse them then then, their experience they think. Oh, you know what? Maybe it wasn't that bad. You know, you know what Levy on left, but you didn't do it. Antonio Brown did you know and and, oh, you know what they didn't really treat with respect. But like Tomlin's a lot better than Adam Gates. So maybe that you know when you're trying to win. Don't go anywhere. I'm more curious on the Pittsburgh side, though. And the real winner to me here is Mike Tomlin. Because no more Antonio Brown number Levy on Belle. Adam left Go. They're undefeated right now. It's They were so I before the season, predicted three FT. North team make the playoffs and so far that's looking pretty good on. I had them ranked Ravens Steelers in and Browns browns are like a 97 10 and 16 to me. The Steelers are like Well, they're on 11, 5, 12 and 14 and I, The defense is still kind of getting picked apart a little bit. They have these moments We fell in the Eagles game. We saw Houston when Shawn Watson was clicking. We even saw it when the first of the game of the year against Denver after Drew Locke went down. Jeff Driscoll had success. But I think that that gets fixed because I don't know, man. Don't you always feel like after six games in the Steelers settle into themselves? Nicole the pair it just it feels like what's about to come the offense. They got David DeCastro finally back, and he's one of them pulling guards in the NFL. And you look at the weapons chase. Claypool is the new Martavis Bryant. Chase Claypool is the new Plaxico Burress Chase. Claypool is the Super Athletic, Big wide receiver. That big band who throws an unbelievable de Paul.

"It was forced by DeMarcus Lawrence, though, and Danny we were talking about the one Big Achilles heel for Daniel Jones. Now this second season that is 21st pump. Now in 18 games. Well, that's a killer when it turns into an immediate six points. The other guy, I don't know how you prevent that from happening, because unless you get a new left tackle The law, Fran right around and got on top of Daniel Jones so quickly. Jones never saw it gets hit in the back. Popped out. The only way you get a play like that in a ball, take a perfect bounce right into the arms happening. Brown hits him in full stride. He'd kick here. Bye. Zuerlein No return opportunity. Way we've talked about adjustments Personnel scheme. We talked two weeks ago. How the Cowboys coach is Mike Nolan Mike McCarthy really stripped down the defence and after what was what transpired last week, Mike McCarthy was asked. Was any way to strip anymore away, he said. You can't dummy it down any more than what it is right now is what he said. But no one has moved from the sideline to the booth this week. So whether or not that has made any difference after that first drive remains to be seen. But there are signs of life on the defensive side. Jones under center. They go back to the ground attack Devante Freeman. They were successful. The first couple of drives oldest Smith's tax him up having him around the waist along with Jalen Smith after three yard pick up Like guarantee. Even if the defense to play well in this game and the Cowboys end up winning the game, I could tell you where no one will be next week. Be right back in the same place there, whether it made a difference or not. That's where he'll be coach's might be the most superstitious bunch of people on the planet Giants with their three tight ends all on the left side receiver outside the numbers and Devante Freeman jolt to the nifty backfield here on Second seven steps up throws that one nearly picked off by Thomas. He was trying to get into his big tight end. Ingram and Thomas stepped in front and he was looking at a sure pick six. Well, yeah, Thomas got his right arm. Stuck behind the receiver. He's so coverage is so tight and so good. I don't know what Jones was doing, even throwing the ball there. He was staring him down the entire way. Yeah, he did, and Thomas can get his right arm out behind the receiver. He gets two hands that ball and it's an easy pick six. Like you said third and seven, Bailey, the white out at a Texas A and M splits outside the numbers to the left. Slade here on the right side, Jones pressured again pocket breaks. Down. Steps up throws completes on a crossing route to golden tape running left to right back up field across the 40 45 racing out near midfield who'll be stacked up at the 49 yard line. Xavier Woods there on the stop button. As they needed the last Siri's. He goes to Golden Tate for the third down conversion, and it goes for 21 again. It's the other side of the field is on the right side this time, but there's a huge, gaping hole with defense for the Cowboys. Hey, just runs us running a shallow cross roads into that whole Jones doesn't nice job getting to it, And that's where the communication breakdowns we've seen. Danny is on those crossing routes. Players whether they're supposed to be releasing or traveling. Either way, it's not getting done. Devonta Freeman run play to the right. Not much. They're nice job by Jordan Lewis Coming up on run support out of the safety position is a two yard pickup for Freeman. Well, yeah, Giants.

"Giants leading the Cowboys three and out for the Dallas off dance, and we'll see if the defense is Found a way to solve all of a sudden this explosive Giants offense, which put together three plays of 15 yards or more on that opening scoring drive single back set. Devonta Freeman had a couple of those big plays itself. Jones under center Prima takes the handoff running straight ahead. Spins away from the first Dallas defenders Donovan Wilson, But then he gets good run support. There is Smith comes up. Stops them after just a two yard pick up Well, with the Eagles losing today, all the Cowboys have news win, and they will be leading the NFC Division has done nothing to set itself apart from other divisions around the league themselves apart, just the wrong direction. Jones working out of the shotgun looking at a second eight past time Now, pressure comes in his face steps into the throw completed hit a near sighted short of the first down marker. Jalen Smith. They're on big tight, and it'll be a seven yard pick up. What a great throw. It didn't look like much, but Daniel Jones gave real extreme heat with cowboy do that to an absolute strike. Personally a big fan of Daniel Jones. I think he's gonna be AH, great quarterback in the league just somehow find good players around 31 here. Children give it to his up back, and it'll be an early, easy first. Don't carry their fur like Penny. Third, you're back out of Idaho Wilson there on the Stop so fresh set of downs. Get to your point, Jones. You knew what his weakness is were after last season and certainly and it starts with turnover standing. I mean, forming the football has been a major issue for this young.

"Now here's Greg Potter and the 40. Niners beat Sam Donald in the New York Jets last week in the same stadium Soundly 31 13. They outgained him. 361 yards, The 1, 96 and, Really, the jet scored late in the last three minutes of the game. They only had two field goals for the 1st 57 minutes. I think the challenge today Will be a little higher with Daniel Jones. Also high draft pick. Dave Gettleman traded upto sixth overall in 2019 to get him. They don't have sake, Juan Barclay, but they do have Devonta Freeman will be up today with Dion Lewis and Wayne Goldman, Junior As the running backs behind. But this week we spoke to Greg Cosell, who breaks down the NFL as well as anybody frame by frame for NFL films, and we just got an overview. About the young quarterback of the New York Giants and the Giants. Overall team we talked about Daniel Jones. Just give me your overview on the roster that Dave Gettleman has constructed there. Alexis Hog Molly's and You know not having a shoulder will hurt and you get a big offensive line. They haven't been great. The head. The head coach to me has been impressive, but they're their own two to start the year. So where are the New York Giants at in their rebuild grace. You know, I think that look, obviously losing Barclay really hurt them because I think that they were hoping to be a team where they could pretty much count on running the football every week is a foundation of what they want to do and keep a defense that's clearly a work in progress. Playing fewer snaps. Now that's all changed with the with Joe judge being able check Disciple and the DC Patrick Gray and being a balletic disciple. This is a team that plays in a sub defense, meaning nickel dime They play with 70 beats a times in the first two weeks, they played in a sub defense over 90% of their defensive snaps. So this is clearly a philosophical thing. This is what they do. Even their quote based defense is really what we call big nickel with three safeties. So this is their philosophical approach. I think they feel these are the best players that they can put on the field. They really don't necessarily have bad players on defense. What they lack in the pass rush. They do not have a pass rusher and, of course in the NFL. If you can't get to the quarterback that really poses significant problems to your defense. That being said the New York Giants have registered six sacks through the first two games of the year. And, as Tim Ryan has noted, the strength of their defense is their middle three. And they do play with a lot of three tight ends on the field on offense. So Tim Ryan is standing by to give us a chalk talk is the 40 Niners go up against the New York Giants? Our owing to Jimmy and his chalk talker coming up right here next on the U. S Bank 40 Niners Radio network. Some things are hard to try.

When you don't wear your mask and your part of the National Football League. There are serious financial repercussions. Yeah, I mean, and I think that's something that was very, very clear. You know, the NFL has been adamant about their Koven 19 protocols and you know all the different safety precautions teams. Need to go by just to get players on the field and get this season rolling. Whether it's socially distancing in inside the facility's or whether it's wearing bracelets that don't let you get within 6 FT. Of someone There's a lot of things that you know, even if it makes you a little bit uncomfortable. It's a little awkward. You got to do for a safety reason just to make sure the season happens. Wearing a mask is part of it. We saw this week from Kyle Shanahan to Jon Gruden. I mean on and on several coaches getting fined, you know $100,000 or team getting fined $250,000 Sean Payton. You know, getting fined for not wearing a mask, and I think the NFL serious about it. Coaches get it. Several, including Kyle, including Gruden have apologized for not wearing their mass properly. And you know, I would expect to see the coaches at hearing from here on out or, you know, face. Similarly large finds they were not a great week to be Kyle Shanahan because you end up coming to the East Coast for two games sandwiched in between You get a trip to the Greenbrier, but in the middle of the season, what are you going to do with that? And then? You lose Nick Bosa, And that is a gigantic loss moving forward for the 40 Niners as they get ready for their second game at MetLife Stadium against the Giants this weekend.

You know, you take a look around for somebody who could pick his spot where he might be able to. Reestablish himself, and I understand the Giants offense has been less than stellar, but this might be a perfect landing spot for him. And it was interesting, too, because he turned down a lot of money. When you turned down $4 million in Seahawks turned down A little under $2 million from the Jaguars and, you know now ends up signing for 1.2 million based, You know, it could be up to three million based on incentives but 1.2 million base And you know it was money wise. It wasn't great for Devonta Freeman, who thought he was worth a lot more. But he's going to get some carries. I mean, he is basically going to be the starting running back there. And if all goes well, he would continue to get fed. And I think for the Giants, you just, you know, hope There's some stopgap for your You know, one of your best players, say Quan Barkley and for Devante Freeman.

The same rule applies to the San Francisco 40 Niners. As good as they've been on defense. They're going to have to play left handed. Their linebackers are still good. But the reason line bags were really good, because those four dudes of front kept them clean. The Salma Thompson in the world, the Millers of the World, and also Nick Bolsa.

"In for your good kids on vacation this week will be back next week. We've got NFL news. It looks like the, uh, chief's after securing Patrick Mahomes of that long, 10 year deal have gotten another one of their top priorities locked up there pretty much bringing back that entire team that won the Super Bowl last year. Questions back. Why wouldn't you if you could? Yeah, I know. Absolutely. And then they get to be Dean. They've added Clyde Edwards, Hilaire. It's right in the back field, which should make them Lord. That's the on ly time. I'm going to tell you that it's a good idea to draft a running back in the first round. If you do it, Anne Reid did. And I say that because they use the last pick and what that does, Which is a ridiculous thing that these players allowed the owners put in. I don't get it, but it is what it is. I mean, if you're a franchise, you take advantage of it. The first round picks have the fifth year option. And that is the only time I'm going to say it's okay to draft running backs and a round one like if you're picking 30 31 32 because you're stealing another year, I would say based on need look of you're in the back half like not even back half. But let's say the final third, So I may be the final quarter of the drafts of 24. You are obviously a playoff team because they're picking in that spot. And if you have a key need at the running back position, and there is a player that you find above most in the draft. I'm okay with it. But I agree like anything above that. And you better feel confident. You have no holes whatsoever. Because Gon is the day and age where you go ahead and, you know, select the running back 1st 2nd or in the top five. Top 10. It's just It ends up not not resulting in good things for your franchise again In a lot of ways I was talking about like when you build your defense up to be great, That's fine. But in this NFL everything's tailor made for the offense. More specifically, everything's tailor made for a passing offense. Everything you know, I mean, you exploit the ability of a quarterback to be able to complete 70% of their passes. And because of that, The running back. The value of the running back is not what it once was. But it's gone down dramatically in the last decade or so. It's just not a valued position as much anymore. Teams have become wise, I mean, yeah, you get your exceptions with Zeke and in sake, Juan, But really teams have become wise did not drafting them very often in the first round and go back and look at the history the draft in the last 10 years. And compare that to you know, years, 1972 even 2005. Stay where First round running backs were very common. You'd have five or six. You'll be lucky if you get two or three. Now in the first round. We've had some years in the last 10 where you have zero running backs. Drafted in the first round. It just doesn't make sense that Derrick Henry is not going to get the extension he wants. He's going to plant the franchise tag. Tomorrow's the deadline and the reports are that he's not going to sign in. I just wouldn't do it. And it's nothing against Derrick Henry. How'd it work out for the Rams with Todd Gurley Has it worked for the Falcons Took Tung Girly with savant. The Freeman Devonta Freeman two years ago was the highest paid running back in the NFL. He can't find work. No, he'll get a job when teams go to camp and players get hurt, But the body Freeman can't find a job right now. This is interesting because the Todd Gurley contract was inexcusable with the history of the arthritic knee. It made no sense. I know he was just the monster you know, scoring 17 18 19 touchdowns for consecutive years, but the offense was hum humming and You see you can plug in. You know, he may not be 100% of what girly gives you, but you can plug in lots of guys and they convey productive running backs if you have a good play caller like Sean McVeigh. Conversely, though, the Titans really did lean on Derrick Henry in an old school type of running game, and I would, but that's the point is because Even still, what's going to happen with Derrick Henry, you're going to use and abuse him in. And what happens is the war of attrition for running backs is not kind. He'll be he'll be used up. And then when he finally does, if you did offer him a lucrative contract extension that he was willing to accept karma, chances are you'd find yourself in a situation where you're like. Oh, yeah. Remember, He was great when we signed him to that long term deal, And now that it's kicking in, we've used him for 400 plus touches a year, and he's no longer the player that he once was. I mean, the NFL history is littered with great players were used and abused. Remember Larry Johnson for the Kansas City Chiefs? Especially at that position? Exactly? Yes. If you're really good And you're somebody who can wear a defense down like Derrick Henry. And you, Khun Garner. You can you can say all right. It's in our best interest as the offense to rely on him and give him whatever it is 400 touches in the season. All that's going to happen in all likelihood, is that three years removed, he's not going to be anything close to the player he once was. The Walter Payton's of the world were rare. Yeah, I mean, it's just It's like you said the war of attrition is harder on them than probably almost any position in the league. It is just not smart business anymore to pay running backs in the NFL. It just isn't you find him everywhere. It's too bad for running backs because, like I remember Livia Bell, saying that they should start their their own union, their own position union, and it's not outrageous when you think about it like they they need to because they need to be paid the 1st 5 years of their career when they're under the rookie deals. Unfortunately, it's just and look, no one's gonna cry for a guy who Is going to you know what's right. What's the franchise? A 12 million from 10 point I think 10.0.27 that goes to show it's going down position that the franchise tag number has gone down. That's all you need to know. And that's based on what the league averages of the top 10 guys. That's where they come up with that number. So that's all you need to know about how the league itself values. The position. It is just not smart business anymore to invest heavily in running backs, whether that's high in the first round the draft or paying them after their rookie deals, and it sucks to say that for these guys, it's their livelihood, But it's just reality. It just When you're dealing with salary cap and all the other of free agent issues that you might have, or the things that you have to take care of on your roster. It just doesn't make sense anymore.
