"The field together with the four true linebackers and loading up to stop chum. Now I think this becomes a lot more about nickel package and a lot more about stopping the play action passing and stopping the passing game with Baker Mayfield than it does against Ernest Johnson. If Darren is Johnson beats you, like he did against Denver a few weeks ago and you have 7 guys in the box and dear as Johnson runs for a 150 yards against you and you probably weren't meant to win that game that day. Yeah, yeah, I'd agree with that. I think not just stopping the pass but getting after Baker Mayfield. I think that's the best just to kind of use that as a jumping off point. I think that's the best thing the patrons can do in this game. Obviously you gotta cover, I'm really interested to see what they do about Travis Landry. Is that going to be miles Bryant, right? But Baker Mayfield is he doesn't have a short memory. I call him a snowball quarterback. And what I mean by that is whatever happens early in the game, it's going to snowball. And that can go both ways. If you let him come out and have a good first drive, I mean, he's going to start to feel it and he's going to make tough life tough on you. But if Matt judean introduces himself to Baker Mayfield early in this game. And baker's getting knocked around. And, you know, he's not getting the time he wants. That compounds in his mind. You can see him get very frustrated easily. If he throws an early pick, it's going to stick with him. So I think the earlier they get on baker, the better and it's that much easier to get after bake or when you don't have to worry as much about the run. Yeah, yeah, I think that's exactly it. And you look at the way that they sequence together their play action passes with their runs on first and second down, this is one of those games for the Patriots that is going to be one or lost on first down..

"So k metcalf scores in eighty four yard touchdown. on what. Like the third play from scrimmage catches one moorgate one more pass. The seahawks are disaster right now. Fortunately it's a good match for gina smith. But i don't even know how you feel. Good about playing tyler lockett with with the production. He's had he's obviously been banged up as well. Freddie swain out targets and out gains matter of fact for out targeted decay. Metcalf in that game against the against the saints on on on monday night. The seahawks they're going to want to run the football p caros taken a lot of heat but p carroll has given you twelve years to show you. He's not changing his stripes. They're going to run the ball. Whether it's alex collins whether it's chris carson whether it's rashad penny whether they resigned marshawn lynch whether they signed john l. williams i. It doesn't matter who. What who the seahawks have there in the backfield. They're going to run the fall. I think chris. Warren gave them all this past week. They're gonna run football and it's hurting. Decay metcalf what's hurting decay mcavan. What's hurting tyler. Lockett was the fact that gina smith the quarterback right now but this is a disaster. It's a great match up if you have decay you have to keep playing but just what a disaster. The seahawks are discussing right now. So what about joe on the other side of the jaguars off the bye with no dj charge. He's done for the year. Yeah and i mean. I think it probably. It's both a testament to how talented this young man is. An example of how decrepit the roster is that urban. Meyer called jamal. Agnew converted defensive back. The jaguars best separator at wide receiver. He said this week doesn't exactly warm. My cockles with regards to low viscous chenault who's been a fantasy disappointment If i'm playing by the way. I think trevor lawrence in this match has an opportunity to put some numbers. Trevor lawrence has just thrown whoever's open when. That'd be dan arnold whether it be agnew whether it be marvin jones. I think jones and agnew or the two best options that wide receiver. Here believe it or not. You're obviously playing james robinson dan. Arnold is a solid tight end streamer especially now that he's had the by to get even more acclimated in the offense. And i kind of like lawrence this week actually like more guys from the jaguars when i liked from seahawks interesting. Okay i can see that especially with gino. A quarterback what about washington at denver. The team moved the ball up and down the field last week. They really did on the packers and just couldn't score. They outgained them. Four hundred and thirty two three or four in that game. You know they had the the problems in the red zone. Heineke given himself up at the goal line. And you know you had terry mclaren drop in a touchdown pass and all kinds of issues. Here i will. I will say this. This is projected to be a close game. Denver just got eaten alive on the ground by the ernest johnson. Two weeks ago denver got gave up quite a bit of production to josh jacobs and kenyan drake three weeks ago against pittsburgh. Najji harris went absolutely nuts on the denver broncos running for one hundred and twenty two yards. You know von miller banged up. This is a run defense with denver. Broncos that is not very good lack the right now it is not a good run defense right now..

"And the interception didn't count the guy was out of balance, but case through a terrible default on the left sideline rolling out trying to late, not enough air under clearly case Keenum has a limited arm and is not a guy you should build your franchise around. But he does do some good stuff and I like seeing that. Now, brown's running back deer Ernest Johnson. Had a big night Kareem hunt and Nick Chubb, the two running backs in Cleveland were both hurt. So their backup running back, I guess their backup backup running back had to buy dearness Johnson. He had 22 carries for a 146 yards and a touchdown, he wasn't alliance of American football player. Like he had to DM every AAF team to try to get on their roster to get himself an opportunity. By the way, that's a crazy story. If you never ask, the answer is always no. And I reach out to some recently for saying, hey, I have an idea. I think we could work together and. If you ain't never asked answers always know, and so I really like that dearness story is a story of the guy who made sure he's like, I'm gonna leave everything on the table. Make sure I try everything. No stone unturned, try to make my opportunity. And when he got an opportunity here on Thursday football, he made me the most of it. He's an undrafted third year player out of South Florida, who, man, dear Ernest Johnson running for a 146 yards on Thursday, but what that does really is further makes my point that you should never draft a running back in the top ten. It's archaic thinking. It puts to shame so much Dave gettleman the general manager in New York where it's like, man, this guy, he's just behind the times when he drafted SQL Barkley in 2018. And it's crazy to get Denver by the way loss to a bunch of browns backups like Denver. Denver is a story. You're like Denver, Cleveland good for them. They survived a bad situation. They got it with a win, great for them, but Denver is a sad story here of a team that just like refuses to win football games. What are you doing? I can't understand and it's that courtland Sutton by the way had a great catch on the right sideline. I want to give a shout out to him. I always try to share a fine on courtland Sutton. The talent is there in Denver. Like they just need a quarterback and I think they need a better head coach and how crazy.

"Espn keenum. third-string. Back johnson lead browns past broncos. So a little bit of salt in the wound there. I saw stat today since two thousand seventeen. The broncos are gone three and three and four at this point three four three and four and five. Three and four and three and four so a model of consistency. At least that's distantly bad consistently bad over the years. So i obviously i didn't get a chance to watch the game. I was coaching a high school. Game at that point but Giovanni williams only four carries for twenty yards. What happened to the run game brian. We're talking about a two. They didn't they didn't use it he should be getting the ball. Seventeen to twenty times. A game i in my mind without a doubt he seems to be the offensive threat at this point but now it was just. It was ugly. It was unpleasant to watch. It was unpleasant. Team looked so unprepared in that first. Half and i don't know that i've seen worse tackling. That was probably the you're exactly right. I mean it just seemed like every time they ran the ball they get hit and fall forward for five yards. This is supposed to be. And i know that. The inside linebacker josie jewel and alexander sitting. And everybody missed tackles. I mean you're seeing defensive lineman hanging on for dear life to a running back. There's just no. There's no pop. I just i gotta be honest at this stage. I hate doing the whole. Did the locker room quit. These are grown men. They wanna win football games but did they want to be in cleveland last night. I just and if you don't have a coach that can rally that the team for this kind of game. I boy this is it. It could get worse before it gets better. And that's the second week in row. Were asking those questions you know. We're talking about the raiders who were in disarray. After their head coach resigns on monday they came and spank the broncos. I don't know if it was the fact that they you know the broncos do they think they just had it locked up. You know. I if they lose this game to cleveland. And they've got all their starters you say well cleveland's a pretty good. I mean there are pretty good team but you were dealing with with their. Jv squad and they still get beat like this third three points but so walk me through the end of the game here. The broncos score with five minutes twenty three seconds left To make it a three point game normally with as much money as you spend on that defense you say we still got a shot this. We're going to get the ball back. We're going to get opportunity. He one of the best kickers in the league and brandon mcmanus. What happened in that. Last series It's it's the way the game started. It's all the defense needed to do. Was stop them and get the ball back and when it came down with they could not stop them they just. They ran the ball right through us and effective passing. You know nothing overly beep. You have again. Ser tan played a very good game. You know but i think we're missing. The main part here is did the guys have fun. I don't think i fun kid. ernest johnson. certainly six yards happiest. A little guy in the world right there. There's some happy parents. Yeah i get that right at the end of that game. I'm going to bet their parents absolutely no happiness. Everyone good time really really frustrated me. Was they convert on third down. It's over right note. There's a penalty call..

Be fun to see what happens when nick trump is back on what their role is fremont returns are still continued to lean on on dearness johnson But if nick nick job is out you got to feel pretty good about having a a starting running back and it was good to see them. Take advantage of the match up Case keenum didn't throw up all over himself so he play well And it's unfortunately time to you. Know i think say goodbye to odell. Beckham has a fantasy receiver. It's just it's just. I don't think ever going to happen from yeah. He played about sixty percent of the snaps. They said he was not healthy that he really wanted to be out there with his teammates so he gave it a go great for him as a. Nfl player is just is a fantasy receiver. It's i just don't know what you're gonna get from it anymore. You know healthy not healthy. It's just might just be taken on a roster spot for you. yeah i guess. If he's healthy and jarvis landry isn't people might have a hard time dropping beckham but but maybe not and you have a landry. Got hurt he left late in the game. Yeah he left on the last drive of the game. They said it was minor the okay. I didn't see an update on that but Data will get one dave. We also had a lot of people. Don't have the most started running back in this game. Was what a guess. Devante william s. It was devante. Williams fit mom. I'm wrong now. it was the ernest johnson. Okay so is that sixty nine percent started right. I have devante at fifty nine and dearness that sixty five. I thought sixty nine for johnson. Jamie fix the snaps. All right guys come on. That's what you grow up. No he's really getting All right so back into that in a second preview. What's coming up the the replacement running backs going to assess them this week. Of course some of them yesterday but some of them we talked about yesterday but we'll go through all of them today. So that's daryl williams and collins booker and hubbard and patterson perhaps and herbert and maybe devante freeman. Eli mitchell guys. You picked up off waivers at some point this year. What can we expect from them. Beat the waiver wire only teams on by next week. Not the same kind of beat. The waiver wire and The six games starting with chicago in tampa bay and just a bit so the injuries in this game jarvis. Landry left beckham left then. He returned donelson. People's jones was hurt and pre game. Warmups cleveland also. Lost cornerback dens award to an injury and baker mayfield has a fractured shoulder so he.

"Jewish in but it but that's the thing is in such a good situation because the tackles both their tackles might miss the game and baker so banged up. So you know how much and the broncos have had They've got some injuries at linebacker. I talked about that yesterday. But the broncos have had a very good run defense there has not been a carry longer than twenty yards by running back against the broncos this year. So they're not giving up big plays johnson as a carry longer than twenty maybe as one or two carries longer than twenty yards in his career. He's got an eight volume probably well. He could always break one. You could always score touchdowns at the goal line or something but you. You think he probably needs volume here. Does he have that good of a situation. I think it's a really good situation. Because not only is he taking on a denver defense without both starting inside linebackers and at least one backup inside linebacker defensive line. That's been good not great. He's doing it at home on a short week. So the broncos got done playing sunday late and now they've got to travel the cleveland. Johnson's got fresh. Legs barely played last week. Really hasn't played much at all this season. I think it's it's just a good opportunity for him but he's a he he gets. What's blocked form so if that offensive line and especially the interior guys are on their game. He'll do fine. The other area where i think jackson can be. Good is on little screen passes where the guards move out of the way they they throw a pass the flat and he's got blockers in front of them again. He's getting what's blocked in front of him. He doesn't have a lot of speed to his game. He's not very elusive. But he's got this opportunity. And i think that's what heath's counting on when he ranks him as high as he does. I've seen enough. You know average running backs in good opportunities before including devante booker last week. Kind of leave us high and dry. If you're if you're okay with what devante booker gave you last week. Then you should be thrilled with the ernest. Johnson and honestly i think he can be a little bit better than what devante booker gave you last week. So he's running back for me but toward the bottom of the list. I i would like to know some of the guys that dave has ranked just ahead of the ernest john. Because i think everything that they've said i pretty much agree with. I don't necessarily. I just think having a harder time finding running backs that..

Because i believe facebook's products harm children stoke division and weaken our democracy. The company's leadership knows how to make facebook and instagram saver but won't make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical profits before people congressional action is needed. They won't solve this crisis without your help. Yesterday we saw facebook taken off the internet. I don't know why it went down. And i know that for more than five hours. Facebook wasn't used to deepen divides the stabilized democracies and make young girls and women feel bad about their bodies also means the millions of small businesses. Weren't able to reach. Potential customers in countless photos of new babies weren't joyously celebrated by family and friends around the world. I believe in the potential of facebook. We have social media. Lee enjoy that connects us without tearing democracy party democracy putting our children in danger and sewing ethnic violence around the world. We can do better during my time at facebook. I working as the lead product manager for civic misinformation and later on counter-espionage i saw facebook repeatedly encounter conflicts between its own profits are safety facebook consistently resolved these conflicts in favor of its own prophets. The result has been more division more harm more lies more threats and more combat in some cases this dangerous online talk has led to actual violence that harms and even kills people. This is not simply a matter of certain. Social media users being angry or unstable or about one side being radicalized advance the other. It is about facebook choosing to grow at all costs becoming an almost trillion dollar company by buying its prophets.

"ernest johnson" Discussed on Big Blue View
"But i would look to probably get off them both in a wide receiver in too wide receiver type of leagues cole. Beasley is also a wide receiver. Three that i feel like you can consider somebody who keeps seeing a solid target share. I have him so beasley. That is as my thirty ninth. Ranked receiver day the wattle as my thirty eighth. I should probably bump them up a little bit now that the news came out about wolf fuller missing this game which is not due to injury. It's not due to suspension due to something else according to the team steph on digs. Obviously you're firing up miles gaskin. I'm still firing him up as a low end running back to healing nine carries last week for forty nine yards. But i was up in new england and he had the five targets. He's going to have that high target share to likes to dump it off to the running backs. I am still going to start miles gaskin and most formats zach. Moss reportedly was a healthy scratch but came out that he was inactive because he was dealing with a slight injuries so he might be playing games. Watch out for that. That could take some carries away from devon single terry. Who's not exactly a running back. I'm looking to play anyways. I had him ranked right now as my thirty second ranked running back but moss is healthy and is going to play which it looks like that may happen and he won't be scratch and i probably wouldn't even have them ranked in my top thirty five. This is not a football team that is going to be running the football all that often. The offense runs through stefan digs. The offense runs through josh allen and his playmaking ability and then the tight ends mike a sticky big goose egg and they this miami angry they just love to use multiple use. Durham smile you see them. Carter used the rookie at boston. College hunter long. So i'm really not wanting to start mica. Seki not gonna start tossing knox either. Let's move onto the houston and cleveland game now. This is a huge implied point. Total for the cleveland browns thirty and a half the over under a forty eight or thirteen point favorites. The texans one at home against jacksonville but this should just be a slaughtering for the cleveland browns. Mostly because the browns who just lost the game at arrowhead played really well in that game and just made a couple of mistakes down the stretch on the offensive side of the ball against the houston. Texans that didn't look that great against jacksonville. Jacksonville just really really sucks. So i think. Nick chub and kareem hunt are going to have huge games have hunt ranked as my running back seventeen right now just in front of miles gasping. Because i believe he's probably gonna see a lot of fourth quarter carries in garbage time. Hopefully it's not too ridiculous to where the cleveland browns end up putting in players like de ernest johnson baker mayfield as a quarterback that you can start in two quarterback leagues. I mean you hope that. The browns throw a couple touchdowns early in this game before they start bleeding. The clock out. Because it's a bunch of rushing touchdowns early. His game may not be as fruitful in terms of fantasy points. But right now we have him ranked as the fourteenth quarterback. He's not going to have odell beckham junior anthony schwartz. An impressive rookie is also dealing with an injury. Right now. it schwartz. Mrs this game. Actually kinda think donovan. People's jones in a deeper receiver type of league becomes an interesting option. Yeah you only had one target one. Catch four yards last week. but it wasn't involved. He ran routes on eighty two point. One percent of the dropbox for baker. Mayfield and without schwartz. Without odell beckham. Junior i think his involvement is going to be increased. Along with jarvis. Landry is going to be the texans focal point. And also austin hooper. So i think all those guys could be in play. Schwartz ends up missing this game and as for the houston side. I'm not really looking to start. Anybody not gonna start mark ingram but brandin cooks somebody. I think in three receiver leagues that can definitely be considered had targets. Call five of them for one. Hundred thirty two yards is probably going to get the renzo ward treatment which is not something you necessarily wanna see but outside of brandon cook. I'm not really considering anybody. And if i mean if it's deep tight end league and tight and preeminently. I guess you can consider pharaoh brownie at five targets called for sixty seven yards gigantic man. He's questionable with an ankle and shoulder injury heading into this game that you would want to monitor that. But that's if you're just really really really desperate cleveland's defense is an awesome start here. Cincinnati and chicago. We have the bengals coming off the win. Beating defeating the minnesota vikings now have to travel to the chicago bears where the bears are favored in this game by two and a half points with an implied point total of twenty three and a half the over under is forty five so it's not the sexiest of games i would say you're not gonna star. Andy dalton he can get benched at any minute for justin feels. I think joe barreau with you have him probably going to be rolling with him to quarterback leagues more specifically. I have as my quarterback sixteen right now just behind teddy bridgewater to be honest. Who looked phenomenal. The new york giants as most of you who are listening to this are aware of unfortunately so. I think there are better quarterbacks. That could be around. A single quarterback leagues ten leagues in a quarterback leagues. But still you have joe borough. You hope they throw the football a little bit more because last week. They didn't throw the ball that much. She was really efficient. Was twenty of twenty seven for two hundred sixty one yards two touchdowns you'll love to see it but that game planning. It's minnesota ran through. Joe mixing and i think the game plan again is going to run through joe. Mixon short passes though as well. 'cause mixed had for targets cau- four for twenty yards. That's very very important. You're firing up mixing in his game. You're firing david montgomery. Who looked excellent. On sunday night. Football sixteen carries for one hundred yards against a very very good los angeles rams defense. And if you're very very desperate in a very very deep deep leagues i think damian williams is somebody that you can add because if something were to happen to david montgomery williams would assume that role to cohen is out right now in chicago. Really have much behind damian williams other than khalil. Herbert the rookie at virginia tech. But david williams. Not somebody you're going to be starting in this game. Why receivers allen robinson. Firing up t- higgins tamar chase tyler boyd firing up and i honestly think darnell mooney is a player that you can fire up right now is questionable with a back injury..

We got into the cohen nineteen discussion and the new storylines we got into how cam newton is not affecting his team in a positive way and we talked about the great idea of bringing media experts in bringing doctors in and bringing in professionals. To your team. mike zimmer. I gotta say good job. I like what you're doing with your team. You're doing the right stuff. It's more than football. It's a way of life and you know what more people should be. Like mike zimmer and we also got into some of the stuff that when it comes to social media and just didn't join the game morning people stop stop analyzing every little single detail expecially especially during preseason and to sit back relax and just enjoy the game so he missed any of those topics or discussions. Go back to our page. Go back to our dsm football podcast and just re listened to that and get back to us on that. You're not gonna win that. Okay so i can take before the break. We are going to get into what we learned in week. Two of the preseason and there's some really interesting things that i learned and there some really interesting topic to discuss about throughout the nfl and especially during week two and going into week three okay. So what did we learn. I learned a lot. I learned that there's a lot of deep running back positions in this league. Teams have a lot of duke primary bags but no what booking across the league. I'm seeing but team will probably have the deepest running back room. Might be the cleveland. Browns already rich with. Perhaps the best two running backs in the league. The best duo. With nick saban cream on the depth of the cleveland browns at the running back position with seen with the hard rushing of ernest johnson. Now not many people may know ernest johnson but he sporting solid vision. He provided a tough tackle for the giants defenders on four carries for thirty six yards. Now you're saying well. Yeah league chub and creek hot or killing lead the way but look out for ernest johnson. He is a sleeper. He might he might get some touches here and there but look out for that name. He also added four catches for twenty three yards and five targets looking to part of verse back. Who could do more than just hit the whole and who can actually produce on the receiving end. Because that's what. I'm looking for in great running backs and great running backs i'm looking for those people can hit the whole hard. Who can do the zone writing. Who could find the who can block but who can also catch to now. He's only twenty five average five point one yard carry per per carry over thirty seven carries fresh off a proficient leg injury and fresh off any legs who are fretful browns. They're going to need them. Because they're rely on nick chub and kareem harm and they're gonna ride on those war courses but say you know the judge might go down like an injured say kareem hunt might be battling was mafia issues. Knock on wood none none of those to happen but watch out for this guy and know another position another team that i love had the running back position. I just love san francisco. Forty niners at the running back position. They're probably up there with the deepest core. Now you have guys like most are the most roddy who's starting running back there who didn't play last week against the chargers but because guide like trae sermon who they drafted high and they expect might be able to carry the load at at the end of the day. We know we know that. Kyle shanahan loves to run the ball and at the end the day. He's got the golden ticket the golden running back ticket from his father. Mike shanahan he got it passed down to him. And i hear that he wants to run the ball at least five hundred times. That's crazy five hundred times in the season. He wants to lead the league in running. And you're not going to run the ball and they have four great running backs for deep running backs who can play in this league where he mustered. He's legit yet. Guys like trade sermon. He's legit than don't forget. Don't forget they have guidelines or deserve jeff wilson junior. Who in my opinion in my opinion he might be the best physical running back on that team. He might be the best running back when it comes to all round ability to hit the whole hard to run it between the tackles to that a gap hard but also his ability to run outside and stretches zone. Read is incredible. And he's a great blocker and he's also great with his hands he just have stone hands. He's a three down bag. And if you didn't realize realize last year this guy led the team in rushing attempts and this guy led the team in total touchdowns so he's a red zone back but he's more than that and then we also have a guy like michael hasty who's gonna find it who's gonna find a spot in this league and he's going to be on roster and it's going to be contributing on sundays. Yes a guy in cow us check who they have full bag. But he's kind of like a weapon x so look out for those teams to lead the league in rushing this year. The browns are so deep in running backs and also the san francisco forty nine years. They're so deep at running back as well who might be the to deepest running backwards. End the nfl. So that's what. I learned from the running back position. Sticking with the san francisco forty niners. Everybody wants to talk about trae land and everybody wants to talk about jimmy garoppolo. Who's gonna start there in my opinion. I think it's jimmy. But lance continues to find his rhythm..

Three weeks from now he might be a top twelve receiver that you just run right back to starting without even thinking about ups or anything else. It's what he wants was once upon a time before beat started freezing and his helmet stop fitting and he started doing crazy stuff and some not so great stuff. But he's he's back he's playing and he's in great offense for him to shine so ben we had the late edition category which was the biggest waste of fabric or the worst waiver wire pickup. Did you have anything for this. Throw this at you all too late. Remember benny snell. It's nine hundred and russia's in week. One james conner is james. Conner hurt is james conner just sucking and he got benched stella's twenty-five russia's since that game hasn't gone over twenty yards since that game. We were telling people. Thirty forty percent on sally could be the next one who who remembered saying thirty or forty. I don't think i remember even saying twenty. I just wanted to the notes. It was pretty bad for snell.

"Week five waiver wire. We got a couple of teams on by the packers and the lion. So you might need a quarterback replacement you might WANNA pick up the guy who is facing the team that has allowed talk for quarterback every single week kind of cheating with that that you have to combine the bears quarterbacks I am, of course, talking about that horrible falcons events and Teddy Bridgewater will he be your number one waiver wire priority probably? Not We got some running back to talk about. All right long winded intro I'm Adam with Dave and Jamie pretty cool. Pretty Fun to have a the two games last night I was that was enjoyable. I could get used to this right. I could get used to Monday night doubleheaders every every week and not the kinds that start that like the week ones that start like super late you know like this was a better way of doing it. Of course, we don't want the circumstances that led to it but no, they should get the game in man. That's the best thing we did. We didn't have any of those replacement things. We'll talk about that a little bit later. Let's get right into it Jamie. First of all, how is the waiver wire this week on the waiver wire arbiter and who are your top priorities? I think it's good. It's not great. There's not a headliner that's jumping off the marquee, but there is certainly some running backs that you could find you mentioned teddy bridgewater as a streaming quarterback. There's two tight ends who could be must start guys the rest of the way, and there's a lot of fun wide receivers that can help you now and certainly in the future. So it's a pretty good week. You know I think it's GonNa be some some fun movement and seeing who gets dropped. Now that's the part we get to because of. The by weeks, happening and injuries, and some decisions you have to make on some of these more more more. So the case than some of these speculative running backs you know, are you still able to stash guys like Dick Dobbins, for example, who's not doing very much players of that ilk is that going to be something that a lot of fantasy managers have to make some tough decisions on? Well last night gave us to exciting waiver wire options Tanya with three touchdowns even going into a by and Damian Harris with one hundred yards. So Jamie, let's get your top three or four whatever, and then we'll get from Dave. Yeah it's the running backs, and so I would put Damian Harris I just the fact that he had the most carries for a patriots running back this year I. Think we're GONNA. See Him take over this backfield. We've talked a lot about what his upside could be if he got the job and the fact that Sony Michelle is on injured reserve gives you a lot to like about Damian Harris could be I. would have liked to. See Him. Catch at least one pass be someone involved in the passing game so that sort of limits is upside but you also see the breakaway ability with a forty one yard run I'm going to put the Ernest Johnson second and Justin Jackson third chase Edmunds is right there, and if we find out at some point throughout the day that Kenyan drake is injured and dealing with injury, then I would actually put Edmonds I. I would to exact same thing Harris I don't think Harris had a great game. I think at best you could classify it as solid. He had a lot of runs that just went nowhere and so a lot of people after the game we're saying Miami can't like Damian hairs part of Patriots backfield and they always have different guys. And thought about it and it's not true. It's not true I decided this myth every year. There are thirteen teams that have suffered A. Injury to a running back that lasted multiple weeks half of them. Half the AFC has had this happen to them literally eight running backs in the AFC that were drafted big time fantasy guys. They're not available for anywhere from a couple of weeks to the rest of the season. So anytime running back pops out of nowhere and has potential to get you fifteen plus touches a week you add them, you get them off the waiver wire please, and so Harris would be that guy, it wouldn't surprise me if chase edmunds ended up overtaking Kenyan drake at some point, he's faster. And they need speed on that offense but really they need to like start throwing vertically I'm doing the chief shop here but you know what? I mean. You gotTA throw Downfield. So he would be he would be up there for me to drake ended up being hurt he did leave the game hurt but it doesn't seem serious and dearness Johnson. What can you say Brown's just WANNA use multiple running backs. He. He so my orders going to be Harris Johnson Edmonds just like Jamie. But a book just like Jamie if Drake's out edmonds climbs to the top, we talked about this on Monday show who would you rather have during Johnson or Justin Jackson and I'm still the only person said Jackson and my theory is there is barring injury, right? Let's say everybody stays healthy there's no chance the Ernest Johnson is going to be the number one running back for the Cleveland browns it's going to be Kareem Hunt Justin Jackson on the other hand you got Josh Kelley who is struggling a little bit and now has fumbled in two games in a row and I mentioned that fumble wasn't necessarily as fought. It was a quarterback running back exchange issue there but. Like Kareem Hunt is the guy isn't it possible that Justin Jackson quickly overtakes Josh Kelley. Yes and you're right Adam A. Said for me Edmonds is fourth, but he could be I. so I, I would have Jackson third behind Johnson the reason I like Johnson better than Jackson which is going to be very confusing throughout the week as we continue to say this. Is because of two things one. I would not be surprised if the touches are somewhat similar for both of those guys. Just based on the fact I don't think Kelly is going to be on the bench despite the fumbles like you said, the one in week four wasn't necessarily his fault and even the one in week three he was caught from behind going down and if they could've talented, it may have been overturned So I think he's still in the good. Graces of his coaching staff at least that would be the hope and so I think just looking. At it you've seen now of four-game sample size of the browns using multiple running backs in each game. Now, obviously, the talent gap between Nick Job and Kareem, hunt is much different than the town gap between Kareem Hunt and during his Johnson there's reason he's third string guy but he also in the first game without nick had more carries than Kareem Hunt and hunt on top of the fact that he is going to have this big role you. Have to factor any came into that game with a groin injury if something were to happen to Kareem Hunt, the upside for each guy is dramatically different over the next six weeks while Nick job is out. So the best rushing team in football right now is the Cleveland browns they're averaging over two hundred rushing yards per game, and so you want a piece of that if you can find it, and so that's why I give a slight edge. To Johnson I think Jackson will be more involved in the passing game for his team given the fact that is not there and we saw I think it was two thousand eighteen when he had a couple of good receiving games. So it's close I certainly can understand going for Jackson over Johnson I was on the fantasy prose podcast. We have fun conversations about the same exact thing looking at Jackson versus Johnson and then factoring and chase edmunds as well. I think there are four good running backs. You can get the differences that edmonds right now is sixty percent. Roster percentage on CBS sports the other three guys are much more widely available with Harris at thirty five percent. So you know the two guys that you're going to be fighting for in most leagues are Justin Jackson, and during this Johnson and you're going to get these guys in some capacity if you're near the top of your waiver priority or your five if you want to go and try and get them for what could be a four to.

"Huge advantage for the bills and disadvantage for most teams that come in there. All right, let's go through Rapid fire now NFL fish, Then we'll touch on the Lakers, and then we'll get into just a little bit of the college basketball on college football. I should say college basketball not far down the road charges and Buccaneers Outstanding game by Herbert. That's all I could say The guy's magical for a youngster but a key turnover right before the half with the Chargers of 24 to 7 after trailing seven nothing Brady driving them down on the first drive. Then it was all charges 24 to 7, but a big turnover allowed Brady to get a last second touchdown pass before the half. And then Lo and behold, the Buccaneers took care of business in the second half. 38 31. They win the game in the contest, the circum Ilyin. That line was 6.5. So they covered that number for a lot of people that took that Buccaneers team. I was one of them in that contest, and I gotta give congrats out to whoever sunny San Diego is 18 won and won the first four weeks into circa million. A. There's no way you're beating that. It's absolutely ridiculous. And of course they have the quarter Li pay up. I believe that was worth 187,000 anyone. And still in first place right now, you know, I mean, when you're in control like that, where that is special, but very impressive game by Brady with the five touchdowns 369 yards, passing Ronald Jones 111 on the ground. Mike Evans was playing hurt. You can see it got away with an offensive interference, got away with some other extracurricular activity, ended up getting seven receptions 122 yards and dig it in the end zone for a key touchdown. But the charges I was impressed with his well, especially if you're losing Austin, Eh, Klar. They still were able to stay right in that game. And Herbert was a big reason Why, Oh, absolutely. And I think he's gonna have a very bright future And it's a shame for Tyrod Taylor. She's getting up losing his job to note no fault of his own. But the scary thing about this Buccaneers team is, the more they play, the better they're going to become, because Brady's gonna have more more and more time to develop a report with his players. He already has a great rapport with my givens, and when they get everybody back and healthy Edwin and everything. This team is going to be very, very dangerous. All right, well, we know the Broncos beat the Jets. We talked about that game on Friday Crazy game for Thursday night football game. It's amazing. Adam Gates still has a job, but I think if he loses the Arizona this week, he too, could be gone. So I really think Quinto probably begun sometime in the next couple of days. That's just my personal feeling. And I feel like Adam Gates is That maybe this week against Arizona to try and get a win. Otherwise, I believe he will be gone as well. Bangles and Jags. Nice effort by barrel into guys look, mince. You did his job. 3 51 and a couple of touchdowns Joe Mixon on the ground, 1 51 and two TDs. Deejay shark was back for Jacksonville had a big game eight receptions, 95 yards, Couple touchdowns, but realistically job our own company. They got it out. They've got to go to Baltimore now, but a 33 25 victory. Nice effort by Cincinnati. Very nice effort. It's nice to see that there's him and T and they're going to grow together. And this is going to be a very good team in the years to come as long as a draft correctly. I like the way this this bangle semen is beginning to come together. They're going to take some lumps this year, but I think in the future of this team is very bright. Sitting 12 and one already in the first four not to bed to bed. They're not in the NSC is that would have you right there tied for first place and the team. They got the tie with Brown's 49. 38 wasn't that close Cowboys poured it on at the end, Uh, you know, looking like they were going to go for one of those miracle comebacks again, and that's again where the Cowboys scored. And prior to the onside kick. That's where they went for two down eight and didn't get it. I just again don't understand it. But then they were down eight and then the Browns end up getting a few local 49 to 38. The final. Cleveland wins it, but it was a big time game for Cleveland. And you could see the writing on the wall when they got the touchdown pass from Landry to Beckham Jr. And it's amazing. You can see the difference between The Browns this year versus the Browns last year. And what the difference the coaches making how the Browns are buying in over 300 yards on the ground, mostly Cowboys had ever given up. Is it totally different? Brown's team? They don't ask Baker Mayfield to do too much, which is fantastic. It is Mike McCarthy in any trouble if they lose again next week. No. That contract's too long and Jerry Jones isn't goingto buy out of that one. Yet. He's going to give him some time. Dear Ernest Johnson did a nice job coming in to help out Karim Hunt after losing Nick Chubb. You talked about that he'll be out for several weeks Mark Cooper 134 yards and a touchdown by the airways. But the last past to Cooper that he could have had a shot at around the five yard line. You kind of pulled up on his route will almost short, armed it and You know, it was a game that for those like me that that Dallas second half all you need. It was a field goal there. And, of course, with Dallas being down 11. They could have gone for that field goal. They had no time outs left. But that would have covered the second half because they had missed an extra point earlier and the half that the reason they did not cover that second half line. But Cleveland 49 30 very impressed with the Browns, now three and one. Out of the gate in Dallas, one and three and like you said, very fortunate to steal that game from the Falcons, or they could be sitting at all and for and that division. It's so funny. I was just a few years ago with the NFC East was the best division in football. And now it's by far the worst division in the NFL. Then I overestimated the Detroit Lions. Just a little bit. Look, they got out quickly scored on their first drive, then got an interception on breezes. First task made it 14 nothing. We've seen that story before. Next thing you know, down 28 40. Scene 35 14 because it was five consecutive drives for New Orleans Boyd with touchdowns. The Lions were able to come back. Make it 35 29, but couldn't get that final stop to get a shot..

Not, I'm not a Cleveland Guy. But. You can't deny what you're seeing at least in front of you for for the first three I four weeks. There are three and one, and you're starting to get those guys that are you on paper they're supposed to do this will they're finally doing that and I have Baker and Obi Jay Nick chubs going to miss a few weeks. Now, I did just see that a few moments ago so. That's going to hurt however, the browns made up for it without job they were running all over the place so it's hard to. It's hard for browns. Fans to freak out yet. Because he had the Ernest Johnson thirteen carries for ninety five yards. And even Odell Beckham on a couple of end arounds to carries for seventy three yards. Kareem. Hunt. Had Eleven carries for seventy one everybody touched the football for Cleveland is that offensive line unreal or what on the other side Dallas is just they're in a bad spot Dak had a really good game but. You're not. You're offensive line's not moving people around for the rush and you're putting a lot of pressure on Prescott and these receivers and defense is not good at this stage. All right. The Minnesota Vikings Houston Texans the battles the battle of the winless. Whoever lost this game? Yeah. The chances of going to the playoffs are not very good. Still. I'm still at quite there yet. Now remember the chances are a little bit better this year because you're adding one team to.

Getting the Kerry doesn't matter who is getting the rock out of the backfield all averaged about five plus yards, as was The story there. Nick Ships will not return and We suspected that especially once they ground scored that last touchdown to extend the lead now, 24 points going down in the first half of the knee injury did not appear to be serious. With that single back set formation. Roll back the near side completes it. Short pass Joe Thomas on the coverage, in fact, no gain on that one as he dropped it off to Harrison, Brian. I'd even be surprised that we see Karim Hunt anymore this afternoon. Dealing with that going injury you've got. Hilliard is on the field. Now. Brown's looking at a third in five. Yeah, it'll probably be Hilliard Johnson. Now the Cowboys. Don't really mount some kind of a comeback or a threat. It'll be Johnson Hillier for the rest of day. I'm sure Golden empty backfield here. Hilliard moves back in flank the right to Mayfield. This's shotgun snap pressure now scrambles out to his right eyes up, looking down field and just throws this one away, is he Appears to step out of bounds so Three out there. Cowboys defense able to get to stop Yeah. See if we can see a little bit of something out of this offense. The cowboysoffense that is Ezekiel Elliott was another one of the guys. I remember in that Falcons game came out really running hard. Good rush there by the punt coverage team collected at cutting back to his left has a blocker to 2025 30 35 runs out of real estate, but Shows you once again his speed 46 yards and punt 26 yards on the return for the Rookie first round speedster. 38 14 rounds with the lead over the Cowboys down with the football when we come back 7 55 to play here in the third more action from the field up next, you're listening.

"ernest johnson" Discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"I thought he looked like I thought he looked bad knocking to seventeen to thirty four one hundred sixty five yards. Maybe things get a little bit better against the Seahawks Secondary. That really is not all that good the front seven though is nasty so this is a bad matchup for Teddy in terms of the pass rush. Andrews peak got hurt last week so that's somebody you gotta keep an eye on. I don't think it's a good match up at all for Latavius. Murray Kamara was a massive disappointment last week. I would downgrade him a little bit not that you're benching him but maybe you don't load up on them in. DFS Here against the seahawks and the problem with Teddy as a quarterback extremer is I think the drew brees now give Sean Payton all the more incentive to use that tatum hill package and maybe there's a chance hill hill comes in and sparks them and they go away from Teddy so Teddy Teddy Bridgewater of all the new starting quarterback this week. I'd probably we have only above like Luke Falk or my list because that tastes them hill package. I think could be a big thorn here for him and it could hurt his bottom line. Even if you think well they got Michael Thomas and they got camera and they got jared cook so they got some talent here. I think that's problematic here for Teddy. Bridgewater fantasy the upside I was looking at it in terms of the taste hill thing what about on the on the other side the seahawks had been really kind kinda disappointing here offensively at least on the ground Rashad pennies the guy who busted off the long run and how about CJ precise getting five opportunities Ross did. Did you know he was still in the league. No I mean I couldn't remember if he's telling the seahawks or not and he thirteen percent of the snaps. You got five opportunities Chris Carson horsing. I'll admit has been a little bit of a disappointment to me. He just seems to have not found room to run and he's been fumbling a bunch and that's been a huge problem that that being said still had three catches for twenty seven yards and still ran for sixty so it's not like he was awful against the steelers but he's more in the high end rb to range than the RB one. I was thinking thinking he was going to be after that late. Training camp hype late preseason hype that he was getting the one thing I will say these wide receivers. I think Tyler Lockett is a locked in wide receiver to that was the usage we anticipate at twelve targets for him. He caught ten of them in week. Two against the steelers and how about De que metcalf. This guy looks way you better than I thought I draft. A high stakes leaks thinking L. Stash for midseason see what happens and he's making an impact already. He looks really good out there. I think he's a wide receiver fever three. I think he's somebody who's very interesting up for. DFS purposes although you wonder if you'll draw the shadow coverage of Marshon lattimore. That's the problem here especially if they're gonNA put Tyler Lockett in the slot lock. It's the better bet metcalf probably more. GP Play and if you are dying at tight end we'll disley. He scored two touchdowns just understand the goose egg is coming and it's coming soon but he did score two touchdowns and Russell Wilson looked his way in the red zone. Oh by the way Russell Wilson I thought was spectacular against the steelers how about Texans and the chargers will start with the Texans more of the same in terms of Shawn Watson getting beat up and then not doing very much Laremy tunsil limping off the field that wasn't good it looks like he avoided voided injury here but that's not good news for Shawn Watson and look if not for the rushing touchdown he would have had one of the biggest stinkers of the week at quarterback after Patrick Patrick mahomes totally torch the Jaguars the week before here is the takeaway. I'm going to have from from the chargers from the Texans for this game. The chargers orders three point favorites now. They're they're on the road but the chargers have no home field advantage whatsoever so that doesn't matter but with the chargers projected favorites. I you think this means it's more of a Duke Johnson Game Than Carlos. Hyde game doesn't mean they're not gonNA use Carlos Hyde but I think Duke Johns the guy if the Texans were playing from behind is going to get more of the opportunities last week it was they were playing from the head. Even though it ended up only a one point game the Jaguars were really never threat to score points so Carlos Hyde. It was the guy ripping off chunks of yardage twenty carries for ninety yards. Do Johnson had just six for thirty one and he played thirty nine percent of the snaps to sixty one percent for Carlos Hyde. I think that changes against the team that could score more points the way the chargers can I think this is more of a Duke Johnson game and if I had the choice between the two of them in a lineup Ross I I would play Duke Johnson this week. Okay that makes sense to me. I think we know what the receiver deal is there. Although you WanNa comment on Kiki Not Kenny stills stills is actually the more interesting player to me and I wish they would use them more but you have to take into account. He's probably still learning the offense a little bit here his snaps napster at thirty eight percent. He actually played fewer snaps and Kikuchi did I would. I want still still the guy still prefer to have on on my bench inch but their top two receivers each played over ninety percent of the snaps that's Hopkins and Fuller. Those two guys are absolutely in your lineup before either. Stills are not even get consideration Gratien. How about with the chargers on the other side play Austin Ecuador's my advice that guy looks spectacular and fumbled the goal line and cost me money on the even money podcast Joe Yeah. That's a problem. He's that is an issue okay. Maybe go to Justin Jackson at the goal line. Eker can still rip off longer runs. What was able that a money line bet Ross or did you have the chargers. Did you have the chargers minus. The points chargers urges minus the points that was won the sharp guys were like the sharp guys love. I think home teams getting points in week two. They were probably rejoicing Joyce. Yeah this this one was tough awesome equity and by the way Ross that's been a problem. Ecuador has been a fumble or so consider consider that that being said though he still went for six hundred sixty seven through the air and had seventeen and sixty six and a touchdown rushing. He's an rb one. You play 'em each and every week at this point Houston look they gave up. They gave up four receptions to Leonard Fournette last week. I think is going to be just fine. Justin Jackson's only Affleck's play the the one thing I will say here how about like Williams. We weren't even sure he was gonNA play and he made one of the best catches. I've seen in quite some time that diving diving catch that he made down the sideline. I think he's back on the wide receiver. Three radar would have been really nice. You mentioned that fumble that awesome echo or had would have been really nice. If Mike Williams teams hauled in the touchdown pass drop that went right through his aunts yeah exactly all right. Let's move on then to the rams and the Brown's last night Monday night. I was on the sideline and you know Dell Beckham. Junior's Odell Beckham junior enough said I tell you the browns offense though still really isn't in rhythm and Baker Mayfield's not playing all that well and it's affecting the fantasy he stuff for some of his guys. It looks like he's kind of just like moving off a spot. It looks like he's not comfortable in the pocket and look they treat a Kevin Zeitler in the Beckham Trade. You you trade one of your best lineman. That's going to happen. I don't think they're offensive. Line is very good but I kind of agree with you. It feels like Baker is kind of breaking the pocket and he's trying to make plays. He's on the run and Greg Cosell's told me this all the time and I've really looked at it and Baker Mayfield. has this reputation as you. Well know as a guy who you know outside structure. He's a playmaker and he can do those things but I do believe at his best. He is as you mentioned a rhythm player player who's distributing from the pocket and he was not doing that last night. No he really wasn't so then other than Odell chubs. There's gotTa be in your lineup. Although it's weird that they pull them out every third down for the Ernest Johnson Ernest Johnson Ross d ernest yeah that was strange to me because look nick chubs good receiver four for thirty six. Johnson got down the field though three for forty two. We'll see what happens with Dontrelle throw. Hillier de Miss the Monday night game with a concussion well. We'll see what happens with new joke because he had a concussion as well so you're going to have to look elsewhere for a tight end and this week especially coming off a short week. It's going to be very hard for him to get cleared in the protocol one of the problems for Baker's. He was missing his third down security blanket. Rashard Higgins didn't didn't play in that game and they had to rally Ross. I know you're a big rally guy so they put him in there but at Baker's not playing well and he's not distributing from the pocket. That's really gonNA hurt Jarvis Landry because landry just three for thirty two on seven targets landry. I think you you could say throughout his career precision player. He's not running well. They have them running down the field more than the dolphins did but he's always been somebody's kind of have has a timing. He's a field player player and there's no timing and feel to this offense right now. So Landry is bench people. You're not benching Beckham. You're not benching job probably not benching Mayfield. We'll just based on where you're drafted him but landry is eminently vegetable right now because as you said this offense there is just something lacking totally agree agree all right so then. Let's get to the rams on the other side. I thought early look good again. Monroe fantasy team yeah. I thought curly girlie look how supercup dude that was amazing and unfortunately I would've won like two more fantasy matchups. They didn't overrule that but how about those is reports coming out in the preseason. Oh the rams coaches think he looks faster. Yeah Okay you know I'm glad he's practicing but is he seriously going to be faster aspirin stronger yeah. He does look look. I don't think anybody even if you love Cooper cop coming out of Washington eastern Washington. I don't think anybody I thought he would ever be the type of player who'd be breaking eight tackles on on a on a play and running people over especially in his second game back from ACL tear. I love the rams because there are narrow fantasy team. Cup is in your lineup as a matter of fact. This might sound like hot take. I think I'd prefer prefer him to have him than any of the other two receivers for fantasy. I'd prefer him to cook and I performed woods and I it just feels like his role is the most steady need the most consistent and he's the Guy Jared Goff leans on but the problem. I have right now Ross. I don't think Jerry is playing well. Either nine thousand nine hundred twenty twenty eight for two eighty three and a touchdown he got a rushing touchdown but a.

"In in by federal prosecutors in LA, and they allege stealing millions of dollars. I think it was twelve million dollars from his clients. One of them was like a a man who was disabled in a very bad shape. I mean. What what what the law called Kali vulnerable victim? And then in addition to that he committed allegedly committed Bank fraud tax on and bankruptcy fraud. So. Is a sort of indictment that it's just berries someone because it's very hard to defend all those fronts at once. You know, it's like in the war. You don't have to war thirty six front war. And it's very hard for for Mr. naughty to defend it. And I will say I, you know, I I is own sake. You know, someone who progressive and it keeps making public statements about this. And that is not an interest is his own personality. I think is starting to you know, undermine any potential defense. He could have and it's hard to see at this point with that defense could be talking about one of his clients. Jeffrey Ernest Johnson, mentally ill paraplegic on disability. Who wanna four million dollar settlement lost LA county is that he was representing. The naughty was representing that money was wired to of naughty directly and hit it from Johnston for years. That's a big no-no. Isn't it Renato to do something like that? I can understand what it is. It is it is not just on ethical. It's a crime. And it's very heinous thing to do if that is true that is just absolutely heinous. And he should he should be. Absolutely. She ended himself. It's disgusting. From what you see in reading the indictment here with I is this just is this just a mountain of evidence that you've already seen against him on these charges. It seems like whenever it involves banks and wire fraud, it's easily traceable, isn't it? You can you can look at where money goes and comes from. This is sort of indictment that would cause me to to persuade client and say, you know, really confront him with the evidence that I would receive from the prosecutor and just say there's no way that we can fight all of us at once. So the question is just what sort of deal can we work out for guilty plea? And that's. There's certainly a presumption of innocence. And I understand Mr. ATI out there saying you gotta sin, but there's there's so many different fronts here. There's so much hard evidence. Here's the bankruptcy front your taxes here. IRS not paying taxes for something. Like ten years the number of years. It's either you did or you didn't. I mean, that's the problem with some of that stuff. Like, either defend that, right? It is. And the jury is going to hear that he's getting all these millions of dollars coming in. Then he's not paying taxes. Like, it's going to be hard for the jury to keep all the straight. And it's it's, you know, and and really, you know, flying that everyone else's lying but him it's just a very tough defense says along the way, I've made many powerful enemies sort of pointing the direction that the powerful enemies somehow set him up, I'm entitled presumption of innocence. You point that out confident Justice will prevail faces up to three hundred and thirty five years in prison, which always sounds horrific. But the certainly seems as if he could go away for a long time. The case doesn't even include the Nike New York case that they're talking about there. This is by far the more serious case, I will say those numbers don't mean anything sort of Mickey Mouse numbers. But I would just say that, you know, under the sentencing guidelines, he's going to face, you know, very very significant sentence because you know, he was somebody who, you know, allegedly, you know, committed many millions of dollars at the fraud involving vulnerable victims he abused their trust. Which is another enhancement is winning involves sophisticated means there's all sorts of enhancements that would be applied to this that I think would, you know, result in a recommended recommended guidelines sentence that the judge could go below you know, if the judge wanted to, but if you know, many years in prison, okay? So we're to be three hundred thirty, but it will be a long time very very serious charges here. And you know, certainly, Mr. ATI is right that he has made powerful enemies. Of course has as well. The problem for for Mr. Nadia's, regardless of one's enemies, stealing from the the the the mentally disabled individual tax payers for that matter is still not permitted. And the question is whether or not he can defend those charges and convince a jury, there's reasonable doubt. Thank you so much. We always love hearing from you. And we appreciate your time. Former federal prosecutor, thank you. We are going to check in the top of the hour news. Let's see what's coming up with Andrea darlas here on WGN. Well, Anna man who spent more than half of his life in prison is suing Cook County and the city of Chicago..

"Turns out Julian Assange is the only one facing some legal issues. Erstwhile liberal superstar attorney Michael avenue. Who just a year ago is going to take down. The Trump administration has just been indicted on thirty six counts of tax dodging perjury failure to pay taxes, embezzlement and other financial crimes. According to the grand jury indictment avenue stole millions of dollars from five clients and used a tangled web of shell companies and Bank accounts to cover up that theft. One of the clients. Jeffrey Ernest Johnson was a mentally ill paraplegic on disability. A what a four million dollars settlement of a suit against Los Angeles County. The money was wired avenue in January twenty fifteen but he hit it from Johnson for years. This was the left's hero, ladies and gentlemen, that story. In the Los Angeles Times. Breaking news. Ebony is in even more trouble. Than just shaking down Nike Scott in Iron Mountain Michigan into you. You're on the Donald show. What's up, Scott? Thanks take McCall, Dan. Hey, all you Bernie Sanders fan real quick education. Number one. I know are very close friend of mine lives in Germany, and if you think you're gonna get free health care, but not pay at least fifty percent of your wages. Just a pay for free Medicare and stuff. You gotta notice comment number two. This free education. Birdies promise, I got news that we're gonna pay for they're not rich because they're still, but one is the last time, you people ever think you're gonna get a job from a poor, man. Get rid of this cloud before he destroyed you dreams dire. Warning and an entertaining one from Scott's thank you so much, really. Appreciate it. Okay. Before the top of the hour before I got sidetracked with the issue of socialized medicine and the true cost of it. And Scott is correct. If I had a caller off the air who said, look, I'm paying I don't make a whole lot of money. I am paying thirty to thirty five percent of what I make just to cover my healthcare costs. And I said, look what's going to happen is your taxes are necessarily going to go up because you're going to need to not just pay for your care, essentially and everybody else who is loved into the group with you. But every three hundred thirty mil. Million people that's a tremendous strain on the system. So somebody has to pay that it's going to be you. And he used a very clever analogy he said, it's sort of like a grocery store telling you, okay? In order for the grocery store to stay in business. Everybody in the community needs to give us ten thousand dollars. Otherwise, we won't provide for food for you anymore instead of in a capitalist system, the grocery store setting the price and people voluntarily entering into a contract with the store saying I am going to buy this apple for thirteen cents or twenty five cents or whatever the hell and apple is I don't buy them by the pound how much our individual apples fifty cents. No, you can buy individual oranges. You can buy individually. But as you gotta buy the bunch. A couple of cents instead of willingly entering into that contract it essentially amounts to coercion..
