"All right I saw little glimmering Jason's I, and that was the glimmer of perfection. Last week in buy-sell he actually went three for three. a close one. We also name hines with thirteen fancy points. We all sold clear we should have sold one. One fantasy points. Yeah. We sold Keenan Helen Todd Twenty wide receiver he ended up close but he's the wider twenty three and we all did that together and then Mark Ingram Mike and I sold him as a top twenty running back Jason. Bought it. And finished it. He finished it rb nineteen. Snuck it in there with a welded a thirty yard touchdown fourth Jason said he was GonNa get in the end zone that was the reason he took it. All right by yourself for week three James Connor is a top fifteen running back against Houston by I am definitely going to buy because I had James Connor in as I started the week for I'm guessing one and a half seconds I had him in the dock. I am not going to do this. I'M NOT GONNA put my start of the week on James Connors health but if I've got a by herself, here's where I can take i. think he's healthy. He's clearly the Guy Snow fumbled the ball and was was done to just say we we we have enough date from the fantasy football is inside source which we are basing. Akunin projections upon the sleeper bowl the the celebrity league we are in with Juju, Juju Smith Schuster this morning. Draft Benny. SNELL. He's out. So out of. You guys are you guys are MIS Interpreting that data Oh, are we? Yes please please enlighten us because I believe Jude, signed Benny Snell after week one and we viewed that as a sign that was good for beneath snow. Yes. What was the result of that intelligence negative fantasy point negative fantasy points therefore, ipso facto him dropping Benny Snail ball tells about to blow up. We got an upside down situation you had an upside down man you WanNa know what this this tells me all jokes aside is that I don't think Doodoo picked him up. He thought he would be a possible good pickup. And he's in there like. I think we know a lot and they don't know as much as we don't know sometimes I am going to sell top fifteen too high for me I. Think he is in that fifteen to twenty range. He'll put up the Ingraham like stat line, but I, think that'll be outside the top fifteen so I will sell it Mike I'm GonNa Buy Okay David Johnson same game ten fantasy points at Pittsburgh that is not a difficult line. To Hit, he can do it in the passing game I'm, GonNa, buy it. I will sell this line. I think that it will be more difficult in the matchup I mean Pittsburgh right now saquon did not hit it in week one, nine, million, six, he was under and Melvin Gordon, did he had fifteen point four points but it took a really perfect receiving touchdown I'm I'm just gonNA guess it doesn't go Houston's way this game. I I'M GONNA sell. And I've got a chance to really you do you. Adam feeling as a top ten wide receiver against Tennessee two weeks. He is the wide receiver ten I'm going to sell it. And I will buy looks like we are going to be opposite cities here. I think in general most weeks Adam feeling is gonNA be a a top ten wide receiver. So the Tennessee defense is good. Not Great. They don't scare me. Scares me is the Minnesota Vikings offense and that is exactly why I'm selling the Minnesota football team is terrifying. They lose their handle they got rid I'm just saying I'm. Eating all of them there is not a good situation going on, they want to preserve the vikings brand. So this year Oh, they're all going the MINNESOTA. No top top ten you got I got. Breaking news the Minnesota has dropped the front part of the name. They are just football team. They would not like to be associated with their now just going by dudes. I really do wish this top twelve top ten is I'm selling this guy sketchy. Oh I don't like my by I'll stick to it but all right that was by yourself from Pristine auction use the code ballers at Pristine Auction Dot. COM YOU GET A ten dollar credit towards your first sports memorabilia purchase. News and notes from around the League. All right the. New York football team the giants they signed Devante Freeman to a one year contract worth up to three million dollars. So though. This is the word out from devante Freeman agent. He. Passed up more money elsewhere because he did work out with the eagles. For the opportunity in front of him in New York now I thought he'd get more money than this. So this actually throws a little bit of shade on my view that Freeman will. Walk in the door and take all the work from day one I thought this deal would be four or five million dollars more guaranteed. He will practice with the team. He passed the Cova tests and he's going to practice and potentially play this week. But YOU'RE GONNA have John Lewis involved you're gonNA have potentially Wayne Goldman involved. He is a hold on my bench right now if you have the opportunity to hold wait and see I think that's the preference. A lot of people that are picking up devante Freeman lost running back or to and need to start him I. do expect that he'll come in and be the primary ball carrier week one you know if I had to say which one these running backs from the giants has the most fantasy points this week. I. Think we would all put it on free. That's okay. We I wouldn't put it on Dion Lewis in week one I think it's probably irrelevant whoever it is. Is Someone. I. Don't really want in my line and I agree with that and I agreed I thought he was going to get five million. So Up to three million was this is not A. Situation where they're saying save us were putting our hopes in you. Here's all the money. What's Funny. To me, you know just trying to look back in the history of what has happened with freemen over the course of this off season. We was he was reportedly offered like what? Four from Seattle correct. Things somebody has some rugrats that he did not take that on a good team and now Yeah. I I get it for Freeman you this is your best opportunity for touches. This is not your best opportunity to impress another NFL team. You have a job next year. See I think it is I guess why he's doing it I think he wants this job because that's why he's Doing it. mean the what I'm saying I watched saquon Barkley right in week one, right? Have absolutely zero chance it was like they were JV team playing an NFL team. There was nothing he could do and if if the receiving work doesn't go to Freeman, it goes to Dion Lewis. Good Luck for future saying best of luck man better ten carries behind a good offensive line than twenty against the behind about one exactly sterling shepard on I. Our Turf Toe. That stinks any given Ingram will have a pretty good shot here. They're not GONNA be able to run like they. They expected to they certainly going to be down in a lot of games. Ingram. slayton golden take Golden Tate a little sneaky smart. But we're getting to the part of the schedule where it up for the giants and Daniel Jones. We knew the beginning was GONNA be rough soon but not yet forty niners although the foreigners are pretty banged up, their defense is rough right now demonte Adams is considered uncertain for week three against what saints this why was this verbiage? It's a new. Redesignation. Certain I. Think this is just them saying. We don't want. We want to utilize the fact that he had a hamstring issue to save me be you should plan for without if you're the Davante Adams manager, you need to pick up NBS yeah and hold him as the last minute pivot because it's a Sunday night football game. Yup, I agree Dirk Koetter says he believes there's more to the Julio Jones Hamstring injury than he led on. Earth, it's like a transformer. More than meets the eye scribes only more deceptive on situation. What do you think your Russell Gauge Hayden hers the beneficiaries of Julio has to sit Russell Gauge I I would say would be the number one. Obviously Ridley's been awesome and but yeah, I think it would help obviously everyone else..

"Dion Lewis, Emmanuel Sanders, Deontay form and drew Brees Royce Freeman to me was Valda. Scaling Duke Johnson. Chris Herndon, Jalen Samuels Dave closes around with Edo Smith. I took Freeman as a handcuffed to Philip Lindsey. So just locking backfield. You took a chance on Edo Smith who could end up being maybe the starter in Atlanta. Spending on the health of freemen. But most likely the number two guy when you look at the running backs in this round Smith being one of them TJ yelled and who's going to be a free agent. Mcguire could be the starter for the jets as he close the season. And then the foreman who finally came back from the Killys injury. But didn't make much of an impact to close the year. Which of these guys excite you the most? I think I'd go with ITO Smith and allies McGuire. I'm concerned that Yanti forms just not ever going to be what he was two years ago. And I kinda I still expect if yelled and gets a feature job, and that would be a huge difference maker. I kind of feel like he's going to go into a third down role somewhere. I think that's exactly what it'll be pegged for now that he's gonna hit free agency. I don't see him being a featured guy eat all of chance we know that there should be some addition by subtraction that backfield and Atlanta, whether they rather they resigned tavern and cut Freeman or keep Freeman and let Coleman walk. So he'll move up the depth chart a little bit. I think he's an excellent around nine pick. Yeah. For sure, you know, he's he's got he's got upside. I wonder what they'll do with Brian Hill to you know, the chance that we see a little bit or the end of the season. But they just keep them as third guy. Sure. I don't see us narrow seven Coleman returns. I think it's Freeman Smith hill..
Derrick Henry's Fantasy Playoff Outlook After Monster 238-Yard, 4-TD Game
"Right now. His ass fan. Cheering because Derrick Henry is coming back in the game for third and goal. He could he could get his fifth rushing touchdown of the night. It's third and goal. The titans lead the Jaguars thirty nine Derrick. Henry right now. Sixteen carries to thirty nine four touchdowns the Jaguars stuff Dion Lewis on third down. And they were partying like a big stop in the Super Bowl. Right. The second down play Lewis get stuff. Jalen Ramsey starts flexing. Like, this is the greatest thing ever gets questioned via Tennessee Lyman walks over. And then he flopped he went and he did a full Rick flair. I'm flying to the ground referee, not buying it. Playing violins and the entire office is beautiful. Jalen Ramsey flexes. After a third down stop. Second down stop his team is losing by twenty one. And a guy could set the record for most yards rushing the game against your defense. But now, hey, good, man. We just made a big stop in a goal at the one. Just unbelievable. We're really one of the more ridiculous things. Yeah. That we've seen in some time from the Jacksonville D. But you know, that's about his chest is I guess they've been able to be this entire season just to absolutely absurd. The offensive line doing a great job for the titans throughout this game. Just owning the line of scrimmage. So they get a big stop there. I guess quote unquote, and for the moment slowed things down, but Henry comes back in. We'll see how they played third. Jason. I got to take something back that we said we actually thought CJ two case game was against the jets. Because obviously every good game anybody has against the jets. But what if I were to tell you tonight's game and Chris Johnson's game. We're both against the Jags were they really? Boxing.

Indianapolis was in New England. Thank I've been at the NFL network twice as long than I was at he SPN. So I don't know what my point is. Except to say. This is my I get goosebumps thinking of this.

"And there was like, wait a minute. So Tennessee allows the fewest fantasy points a tight ends gronkowski plays. Would you consider sitting him? It depends on who you have if gronk is really tied in a lot of people drafted gronk and they're getting by with streamers. I would probably start him over most of the streaming bunch. Yeah. But if you have OJ Howard, you're playing him have George kill your plane him. Sure. Now, I remember I said they've only faced one good tight end this year and Ted ten catches for one hundred twelve yards. All right. Mario starter sit. Mario he's in the streaming conversation. But he's not as good as Baker ally. Okay. I'm not I'm not buying in after one game against Alice. Thirty percent owned. Mario. Mario. Mario. Sit. Derrick Henry is Sumi sixty six percent only scored a rushing touchdown in. I think two straight games. He has who cares. Okay. He just he the number one thing that we saw from the titans coming out of there, by was dedication Dion Lewis and the offense. Derrick Henry barely played. Yes. Dan Lewis is going to be a popular player Dion Lewis or Marlin MAC. I have one spot are I like those. Dion Lewis or Leonard fournette Lewis, David Johnson or Louis Louis Johnson higher than Louis one spot. Dion Lewis or Tyler patriots have been awful pass catching running. That's true Tyler Boyd or Dan Lewis. Louis. I'll take Lewis. I think I'd take Boyd and p p or Kenny golladay or the Louis Louis Louis. All right. I think we are done with our Dion Lewis segment. Healthy must start Corey Davis. Or Ben Watson. Just just kidding. I was close trolling heath is a close because I mean, you know, Davis had a good game last week should touchdown. He's guy ten targets last week. The I would take Davis over Watson. I forget what's around. Just just trolling me Davis or Christian Kirk take. I will take Davis, but they are right in the same conversation threes. All right. Patriots the eighth for Jamie v for Dave twentieth for heath. The patriots not feeling it. I'm not particularly excited about them. I may be a little bit too. Low titans of third most fantasy points to the. I just wondered is different titans. Offense coming out of the by there's going to be better. Now, kind of what we were hoping for. Well, I think they're definitely somewhat different. I don't the question the answer this week as different as they look last week. But Marcus mariota canal feel all of his fingers that like when your quarterback can feel your fingers versus when he cannot feel fingers by definition makes you a different and they're using the on Lewis as a feature back as opposed to plotting with Derrick Henry colts are. Smash the Jaguars. They're going to win by double digits. A really stupid prediction. They're just not that good. I probably shouldn't say that out loud into a microphone, but I'm gonna do it. I'm going to do to make that call. Jesse was. Yes, good completely an entire. There are two teams this week that are favored that I think should not be favored their favored by three points. And I think both of them are going to lose in the culture one of them. And the other is the forty Niners. Yeah. All right..

"You get paid. All right. Ed. Let's set this up. You're gonna hear from Jerry you've been around. Jerry, a lot after games you were having to wrap up some stuff. You did with the titans who is your who's your interview for the titans, by the way? I didn't. I didn't get running back. Dion Lewis who had good sixty are rushing. Sixty Arja receiving made a spectator of Derrick Henry, the former second round running back on Alabama really took over the lead role at running back. Scored a touchdown on a screen pass thirty plus yard screen pass play in the fourth quarter to help close out the game. So we went with his observations he squirted around all over the field. He was very impressive and former former guy usually with the with the patriots. And so by the time you finished up with him. We had already started it on Jerry. And and you've been around Jerry Alon after these games. What about you'll hear both questions from myself, and as we get into this. What about Jerry's demeanor his countenance, so to speak what stood out to you? It's very unusual that you catch Jerry in a in a situation where he's honest about his frustration and describing his teams play as being so substandard and so below his own expectations. Usually Jerry's a kinda guy who's pumping sunshine all the time. And this wasn't that by any measure, and you think further about you know, all of the advantages that they had in this game. You forget that Jason Witten was back for the first time as a cowboy and there was a ceremony before the game. And so there was it was an electrically in the in the crowd, and then they got those early turnovers and the chance to take a big lead, and they just failed by every measure to to meet Jerry's expectations. And it isn't often that he acknowledges it in a moment. So close to the end of the game where you okay with the Jason Witten tribute, you infamously were Chris. Vical of the twenty Romo Tribu only critical in saying they didn't do this for Troy Aikman. And he is a celebrated high level that worked partner broadcaster. And seems to me he won a few more Super Bowl rings than certain other people that might have been giving more acclaim when they came back. I don't remember. The welcome home. Troy banners? Like there were for Wittman Romo, and that's all fine. And well, that's for them to decide how they wanna do it. I'm just saying I think Troy deserve that too. If anybody did got you got you in Whitten. They sit Witten looked pretty emotional. He was gonna make some remarks right after that on ESPN. But they said Joe tests toward talked over him. I know everybody was worried about is. I talked to so many people the broadcast grew there were very concerned about being able to control his emotions circumstance. He did fine. I he was he was good to say quarter. I was listening to it from the press box broadcast, and And he did did some some good. good people been beaten up on him a lot. He's going to be. Okay. They thought they were getting robo. He's not Romo. He's not. He's not that witty no pun intended. Each. Just it's not him. He is smart. And he knows football like crazy in if allowed to in put in the right situations. He can be good. He's just this is not been a great booth for him. And I don't want to go too far into it on that respected ED's still paid by Fiennes. So I don't want him to come at too much on it. All right. Well, actually went and did say something critical of the Cowboys late in the game about the trick play with Colby's Lee from the posing from the twenty yard line. They had a trick reverse play where Colby's Lee who hadn't been given the ball all night. Suddenly now becomes a feature attraction when they're down two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. And then he's he's giving the ball on a reverse expected to stop and throw back to Dak Prescott from the twelve. This you need all this to score in the final minutes from the twelve yard line. When you're down to. Touchdowns. And he said something to the effect of that's, you know, that's one of the things that that's kind of frustrating thing that makes you realize why you didn't come back..

"Interesting decision to throw it to Derrick Henry there. That's not really his forte out in space and expect to make guys miss Lewis running the same type of route to the other side. You would have thought if you had a choice flip it to the little guy who so good space. It's called second down and nine from the fortieth Tennessee with an eye formation sharpen motion hand off the Lewis run up the middle over the center and stop before he got to the line of scrimmage and thrown for a loss of the yard and a half back to the Tennessee thirty eight actor, basically, their original line of scrimmage. We have no score clock is ticking with eight fifty to play here in the first those are back to back. Confusing. First Derrick Henry on a swing route out in space. And then you decide you want to run down here between the tackles with a fullback. You're there. You have it to Dion Lewis to me. You wanna just flip that throw the ball? Lewis wrote down here with Derek Edmunds. In the gun flanked by Louis. She's got four wides third down in jammed from thirty eight of Tennessee. Mario looks at a four man front by the Cowboys.

And that's that big beast tank lords he can get after the quarterback right there. He took the speed released to the outside Marcus mariota trying to step up just as he was bringing the ball up to make a pro down the field. Number ninety reached out that big Paul and slapped it out of his hand. And as you said it was rolling rolling rolling. And finally, the blue jerseys were able to cover it up. That Prescott breaks Italy's at the fifteen at Tennessee. He's got a first. And Jan he's got an empty backfield. Is he backpedals in the shotgun?

"It's like, wow, what do you expect? Tation? Can the titans? Can they compete this year? Yeah, they can compete. And the reason why they are very, very physical football team around the Lee. They say the titans are them kind of games when you play them on Sunday, you still sore until a Wednesday game people like, what? What does that quake? Two men. They play football. They run the football with Derrick, Henry banging at you, and now they have what I think one of the best change of pace in Dion Lewis, getting him over from New England because he is a weapon out of the backfield. He is a nightmare for people in space. I like Mary ODA Bill, get the ball out of his hand. Now people they might be shocked that they realize what a good athlete Marcus mariota is, but out of the pocket in on the run. He's one of the worst throat was in the bottom five throwers that we see from a completion standpoint on the move. So it's the opposite of what you would have expected that we all the other guys that can run there used to run in. They throw better running than they do sitting in. The pocket, Vic, Cunningham, these guys, this Wilson's great at it. Oh, man. I mean, so it's an odd set a circumstance that he has there. How does he improve on that last year? Not necessarily got better. We saw him in car kind of suffered the same type of injury in the next season kinda went bad, him rush, you know? So what will he do in this year? It's this franchise. They can win ten games. They can win Tim Gaines, but him Dion Lewis. Outside of these one of his young receivers, Corey Davis, you know, where's he at this point? Is he going to step up to? I think the titans might be one of the most underrated teams in the league right now. And here's why I thought last year they had below average coaching and from a statistical standpoint, they had well below average quarterbacking mariota after an excellent year, two had more interceptions than touchdowns. Last year he had a seventy nine rating and despite all that they won nine games. They had a big comeback win over the chiefs in the playoffs. They got. To the second round of the playoffs. So I if rival is just league average his first year as a head coach to me, that's an upgrade over Mike malarkey. If mariota is just almost as good as he was in year two, that's a big upgraded to what he was last year. And you mentioned the added Dion Lewis. And the other reason folks should of course watch this game is my man right? There is making his debut as an NFL analyst. So if you have the Sunday package or if you live in Tennessee or Miami, turn on this game and listen, my man do it very few. Don't worry about that. You're not there. What do you say you're not there for the names? Who's who's the game? Calling the games, Sam Rosen, Sam. That's what he's there for. You're there for the analysis. There you go. So don't worry about that. Oh, I'm not worried. Got a pretty good day. Patriots. Patriots came about this close to winning the Super Bowl last year. And while bell check breaches the concept of just moving forward that has to sting just a bit for someone that locker room, though kickoff there twenty eight thousand campaign against the Texans on Sunday Forty-one-year-old, Tom Brady leading retooled offense against a defense that includes JJ watt, and David clowney, a stud quarterbacked named Shawn, Watson artsy, what has to happen for the Texans to upset the patriots week? One figure out what they're going to do because no one, we don't know what was going to do weak the weak. And now you're talking about the first game of the season. No, Eshelman gronk we haven't seen him in the preseason. So what are they going to do? They're going to throw the ball sideways against them. They're going to pitch the ball to the running backs or wide receiver. Philip Dorset, unbelievable, speed, four, three. I'm Tom, this guy is electric. Cordell Patterson. Another four, three guy not great receive. Vers they've proven down the field are veteran football player this a critical year for them. How does Bill Pella check, Josh mcdaniels you like these guys in the backfield or at the wide receiver position? I, I don't know, Phillip door set..

"Dealing not only with their counterparts that are similar age but what about the veteran player there's twenty eight twenty nine thirty two thirty three years old it's looking at a twenty two year old quarterback saying hey kid we're we're depending on you you know you bring up leadership that that you know what that is so that's maturity that's maturity well it's maturity its work ethic its leading by example it's understanding that you're dealing with a lot of different personalities uh you know in in an eleven man hoddle uh with different backgrounds who different stories and you know where you are you a guy that this team is going to rally around a kid you elevate the play of others i made to me you know that's that's one of the things that that the greatest quarterbacks in the nfl i've always been able to do and that's elevate the people around them and uh obviously no one has done that better in this generation than tom brady at it pay granic right before him said of the fact that i've had a few personnel people over the last few weeks tell me that say qualm barkley is unquestionably the best player in this draft better than the quarterbacks is at an assessment you would agree with phil or not agree with i would say that if you had to go out and play a game tomorrow then there's no question that if the game was on the line you much rather just turned hand the football to sake want barkley then rely on one of these quarterbacks dropped back it make that third seven type of throw i i think that there's more certainty with say kwan barkley in terms of his projection into the nfl than any of these quarterbacks however there's a school of thought out there that you can find a running back it's been proven as recently as this past year without come on it and of course uh karim hot having tremendous success as you know non first round picks so i think the viewpoint of gm's and coaches has changed quite a bit in recent years because uh you know you wouldn't take a running back typically in the top of the first round because you felt like okay we've got four or five years to get all of this together and we need to build our team at.
