"Steelers wait so all right so the ravens the ravens have banned the big story and not just regular football but fantasy football as well and we will talk later in about half an hour about Lamar Jackson and just what you can use this season too how you can diagnose him as a fantasy player next year we'll get into that later in the show again three one two three three two three seven seven six DOT marking entries there all the key players for the ravens are not going to be playing mark Ingram mark marquees brown mark Andrews not expected to suit up for the ravens so again if you're using any of those ravens players that's probably not the best idea Robert Griffin the third will be under center for the ravens and Gus Edwards expected to tote the rock for the ravens in the backfield they the one thing that the rate is actually can achieve now I don't think this is something that they're going to be an heavy pursuit of what they can set the single season rushing record they can break the marks set by the nineteen seventy eight patriots without I just ninety three rushing yards now they may accumulate that total just in a normal game so but they I doubt they will be going out of their way to achieve that but it seems like something that that we as in certainly within reach so if you're looking at a possible daily fantasy play Robert Griffin the third who is extremely cheap might be a worthwhile gamble on some your cards and Gus Edwards looks like a decent play as well against the Steelers now the Steelers the Steelers are playing for their playoff lives they do need a little bit help they're going to need to win and they do need the Titans to lose so that's a tough one for them to work out but you never know what's going to happen the ravens again with all their key players on the bench not a surprise that still it would be expected I think that from my multi most folks the Steelers will take care of business any game that they must win but it is a rivalry game and you could see that the ravens would take a little bit of pleasure in keeping one of their fiercest rivals out of the playoffs so even though the back of the playing I think you're going to get a solid effort from the ravens from the back of the very least but it seems like the Steelers are in good position here to take advantage of a bunch of backups in the game for the ravens.

"This is not a guy who's going to just carry the load of and be like well. The Baltimore Ravens run the ball so much. We're going to give him the all the time I would would rather than the timeshare for the saints then for the Ravens Look. I know the Ravens want to run a lot but you know the touchdowns aren't going to be there for the ravens like they weren't for the saints. Most people were disappointed with Mark Ingram last year he had some good Games had some bad games. I think right now marking going at the back of the third round that is way too high. You've still got Gus Edwards on that team what it Gus Edwards do last year. Once Lamar Jackson took took over US A. B.. He was a he was on a sixteen game. Pace of fifteen hundred rushing yards not just going to be like all right. We'll Merkin Ramseyer. sit down these like good running. The Guy Making the decisions talks like that. I want and on that organization yes so I mean to me. I just think is like sure. That's whatever you said. It's be so I mean to me. It's the same situation with the same players behind him. I think we'll be disappointed. In the draft capital. I like I like earnings. Bendix is weird. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm not around the right Mark Ingram fan circles but it's shocking to me. He's going where he's going because I haven't. I heard people excited about. This is a team football at time but nobody's like Tuten like the ceiling for Mark Ingram. Everybody's like yeah. He's not that high right I. I don't know why he's backing justice. Hill a lot of people like justice. Here's the thing that worries me a bit about Mark Ingram said for Derek running backs who will also catch the ball so you're talking about east sharing time with Gus Edwards and yes to his family justice ills a good running back. Who's going to catch the ball is going to be used as a pass catcher erase?.

"Left Jackson. Tuck and run. He's got the first across the thirty lowers the shoulder and cats extra yard too long, the perimeter Jalil guy was there to greet him. He carried him for three more yards. And it's a gain of thirteen. This is where he is so dangerous everyone talks about the read option, which is a huge part of this offense. But you get in passing situations, and you better have a spy or someone paying attention. Because if he doesn't like what he sees the field. He's an he's those lakes take off. He's not sliding no one's gonna finish Ron Tony. He led the NFL in third down rushing. Not let all quarterbacks led the NFL in rushing yards on third down this season. I down four Baltimore from thirty nine play action. Jackson throws nobody home. He threw it into a crowd Willie Snead. The intended receiver with three defenders in the area. It's incomplete go downstairs check it with Ben Lieber on the sidelines. Ben. Yeah. Tony keeps talking about is. Puzzling. For Baltimore the approach they're taking in the run game with L A, not having a single true inside linebacker in playing seven defensive backs. They're not really run the ball downhill allow the runs our perimeter runs its at zone read. And then here on first down there electing to spread out their offense and try to throw the football with the running quarterback. I think they gotta get back to rain power football right in the interior in the teeth of this chargers defense. Yeah. No doubt. They're going against the grain right now. Morning. Morning works playcalling. Here's a running call up the middle. And there's nothing there. Gus Edwards behind the line of scrimmage. Darius Filon came firing through for L A, and it's a loss of a couple then they tried to run downhill here. It's the power game. And. File on just does a great job of replacing the pulling guard, and he does not he gets so much penetration. They can't block back on them. And he's in the back field before anything can get started. So that loss of one for Gus Edwards. He had one carry during the regular.

"At halftime coming out. Anthony, Linda, we can't let them play ravens football. That's exactly what they're doing. I mean, they're playing ravens football. They're playing great D. They're running the ball. Exactly. The coach Lynn told Olivia. He didn't want them allow them to do at a jarred of John Harbaugh side that is up and getting the football back here. The putt to Cyrus Jones Jones is gonna let it hit. And it takes a bad doubts for the chargers as it's going to check up around the forty five yard line. And we go back down to Olivia. Well, you could feel a big ravens presence here all night. And that's typical for games here for the chargers. Home games, really during their chanting. And I hope it carried over our microphones. You could really tell how many ravens fans are here. In fact, in LA bull ravens fan thought. That's the only group in southern California. That's recognized by the Baltimore Ravens. I don't know about you. I've been trying to do a mental summation in my head. But what percentage of purple will be say, you're seeing what do you think? Forty. I was thinking sixty forty charges fast. So forty percent Ray. I think that's about right? And they're enjoy what they're seeing right now is their team takes over forty five. And here's flags before this. Next drive starts false start offense number thirty. I doubt. That's how Kenneth Dixon. So they'll back up from the forty five to the forty. Kenneth fixes kind of killing him this made the fumble which gave the chargers. Touchdown. Now. He starts off this drive with a false start which puts him behind the chains. Which is where they don't want to be. He exits the gay he's replaced by Gus Edwards. We see both of those guys pretty evenly here today. Edwards behind lavar. Jackson the quarterback I in fifteen from the forty to fifty seven left in the third faking the hand off Jackson's gonna roll the right post the pursues from behind Jackson tries to throw it. Catch catches made by Nick boil across the forty right around the forty three is where they'll spot it. So all of that for just a gain of three yard L dollars. Sorry. The forty eight yard line a gain of eight Lamar Jackson is a truly unique at the quarterback position. I mean, Joey Bosa took a perfect angle and sprinted and he's still couldn't quite get. Lamar Jackson who stepped out of it. He is like a longer, leaner, Michael Vick. And that is a compliment get down at seven at their own forty eight. Handoff Edward straight ahead. And he's gonna get to about the fifty to forty nights who short gain and that'll bring up third down at call. It six. Gus Edwards Kenneth Dixit as I mentioned, we see bowtie Montgomery's bitter. They're on third down. And this is where the penalty by Dixon Killeshin. It should be third one. This is how the ravens offense goes. They don't have plays like that. It's third one and they run and easily get it to cook thing for them is quarterback Ron the entire run game. They're not afraid they do bring in my cover here on third down Jackson up in the pockets upset over the metal and completed tinker Hayhurst a little low a little behind him Derwin James was there to knock it free short arm that one a little bit. He he didn't throw it. He kind of tried to push it in there almost aim it. And it was both low and behind Hearst. He put them in high. I catches it. I don't know if when James makes the tackle right away or not. Yeah. Because there was space in front of the in now Sam Cooke onto punt on fourth at six he. He puts it right around his own forty desma king calling for the fair catch. And he takes it around the twelve yard line..

"I. The first thing you go to the first thing. Don't put it on this cake football. No, no, no. Talk to say you as a media per. With the rest of them there. Yacking? House or yappy jacket a tucked into this mess, and I talked about this scribes lows. Lows expert, Dan, I'm watching the ravens game. You know, they get the half. Halftime and all the all the Fers or. You know, the the ravens, you know, they were they need to get back to what they do best. And they need to run the football the second half. You know, they didn't do that enough in the first half. Comical. Just jumping another stat here yesterday. They they had seventy four plays on offense. But ravens did. And the buccaneers had forty seven plays on offense. Again, mathematics is not enough strong in a fabulous. But that's a lot of plays in in the morning here. We're the office and defensive coaches has come in till noon because they're only going to great forty seven. That had to be six o'clock in the morning to get the seventy four. And look at each other a little different flash sporting on whose beauty specially especially in the fourth quarter. You could you know, they were in total command and had had warned the opponent down. And and it was it was just just a matter of the. The seconds ticking off the clock is the ravens is Hank Schram would say matriculating the ball dog. And there's something about finding guys or guys stepping into roles as the season progresses. So we know the markets the moves into the starting role when Joe flacco goes down and Lamar's played really good football running and throwing the football. But the running back Gus Edwards. He's a guy that was undrafted and hadn't really played a whole lot. And all of a sudden, here's a guy that's getting a hundred yard games in powering up the middle. So don't love me. And I love the power football stuff. So I made I'm not with the rest of the guys try to let me in with ground and pound. I'm all about his feelings are a little bit hard. It was a. We're having breakfast with Roman yesterday before the game no report or moving over to the stadium. And and we were talking about ocean breath, or, you know, get into a game in sitting the press box for damn. Damn over the phone. You'll get gentlemen, it's time crying somebody which meant we're going to give put the ball of the ground and pound it down to throat, and I mentioned that the Greek Roman and in great realm came up with another great of word, and he said, but before you playing the like vote, did you have to tend to ride it? So what do you mean by that? You said when you just gotta keep token, Adam and poking and poking out of and you're getting a one yard gain. You're getting a two yard gain. And then then pretty soon it to four yard that's tend to rising preparing for the onslaught that the ravens put on the buccaneers in the fourth club of that game yesterday. Tenderizer? A lot of your games. Right. Because you know, the first half of the game here this season. You have some good runs in there. But then you would just pound it in the second half, which I give a lot of credit to you and coach Herbert as well with being right in the fourth quarter of games in seasons. But that's that's the recipe. You guys sat in pretty much everyone you had this year where pound that ball throughout the game in the fourth quarter. You see that difference? So does Jack said the runs that were two or three yards become seven and eight yards. And the ravens do seven plus minutes and take at the end then had to get the ball back. It's not a bad way. As Jack said, it's a beautiful thing. Wow. Let's get this document with with IRA here and the circle back. The w k. Kick. Not going to give me. As I said there there may be people in that room downstairs, when you have press conferences on Mondays that may say the things that you're saying, but you will not get me to go and cosign with most of that. Because nothing better than a great running game. Two pound that football and control that clock. Because what's the best best way to play defense? Have your defense on the sideline..

"That's the philosophical conversation is how long can we get by on this formula this year? There's no conversation about this being the the lifetime formula with Jack. Sohn he'll get hurt. And there's no quarterback in history who's made a career being so run oriented Cam Newton's closest thing and he's a really good pocket passer a lot of times. So it's a conversation of does this work for this year. Well, I mean, look this was. They almost had that game. One in Kansas City last week and the other four games played here. They controlled the ball for thirty eight minutes. Thirty four minutes almost forty minutes thirty seven today. So it's a nice compliment with what they have defensively here. And I just wanna say. I really enjoy Gus Edwards because I this'll sound somewhat insulting. But he's he's always like running back on autopilot. He just they hand the ball. And he just run straightforward. Like, let's say want. It's when the signs are winning. They want a guy that's going to run straightforward, right? The design calls for it's a robot of a running back, and he's two hundred forty pounds. So he's tough to tough to bring down a little bit too. So he's a he's doing some nice work. This is this is fun to watch at this point. And the lines playing better too. There was not a road drive. I've loved their offense of lying this season. But mostly for its past protection. It was not a road. Grading offense of line in the running game with designs. They have with Jackson and the structure of the play. And they do all this jet. Sweep stuff. I actually sent a really rude. Text one of their coaches saying how much I hate watching their film Baltimore now because it's just so hard to sort out the jet sweep and the ghost and all these moving receivers in the. Running game. What that's done is made the offense of lines job easier. Creates different angles for their blocks. And it makes the defense the defenders stand still longer. And so you hitting stationary targets more than moving targets. So better offense of line from the ravens, it's fun to watch this thing right now, I really eager to see how long it goes on how long it can go and they're going to go down swinging with the run game. They're not going down Jackson's arm it. It'll be interesting. I mean, look you get to January if they get to January, obviously have some some games to win left. Once you get to January the thought that you are going to. Basic control the game flow and play with the lead or or not fall behind significantly in four games against quality. Opponents. I I don't know. That's that's a that's a tough that stuff. They have the defense possibly do that. But we'll see take one game at a time. It's a good cliche. End on for this one the game. I was most excited about today colts always the colts. Just I mean, they are sending on both sides of the ball. The the one the one thing I'll note on this game is the Cowboys were without Zack Martin Connor Williams filling in for him, and you could tell there is a fourth and goal early on where where the Cowboys sort of stacked everyone on the right side of the line that they put a bunch of extra blockers over there, and they tried to do little misdirection and run to left side. And it was snuffed out the the colts read it stopped it. And that was it. Cowboys didn't have a great scoring chance after that. And this ends up being. Win for the colts. Who just I mean, they control this game. Both sides of the ball. Mattie. Reflector D coordinator retort about him on the podcast on Thursday going in. I think he deserves assistant coach of the year considerations. I think it's head coach Frank Reich deserves coach of the year consideration that colts defense. I cannot believe we're saying this at this point the they're just shut out a playoff bound likely playoff-bound team team. They're not overly familiar with would because even from probably he probably had them. Really? Well, scout about these players have not seen the Cowboys before themselves haven't faced in here. They go in and dominate them. And Indianapolis is building. That's that's a big deal these young defensive guys the colts, look so well coached every single week. It's simple scheme that they run..

"You've got to trust them unless you're in a league where they're superstars just waiting there on the waiver wire ready to go. It's a difficult match up against Baltimore. There's no doubt about it. I think it's one where you're going to see Tampa Bay. Throw a lot that probably is going to lead to some turnovers for James. But the thing that has stood out to me when I review Tampa Bay this week was that Mike Evans says does not have a lot of targets in his last couple of games. And we're coming off a week. Chris Gavin had ten targets one catch. I guarantee you someone at one Buc place as saying why are we giving that type of work to Mike Evans, and they're going to rectify that this week? And I think my Kevin's comes through with a nice game. Is that really their address one buck places where where their facility is is? That was everybody do that like one dollars in place.

"But if those guys by well, you're gonna have a great week running back those guys played poorly. You have a lot of people get bounced like I have one decision. It's a it's a a league, right? Don't have the Gordon and I have Lindsey Gus Edwards. Josh Adams, I picked up Samuels in Mark Ingram. So I'm playing by three of those guys win these must obviously. And then I'm playing Edwards and Samuel's play Samuels over Ingram. So that's the decision. I have to make an I'm sure a lot of people are in similar situations of any one of those three guys versus you know. I don't know if you're playing them over a Lamar Miller at this point, but Calvin Koby. Daba cooks perfect one Ingram's another one. David Johnson's in that category. Because I think you're Johnson over those guys, but maybe mix it just with his struggles of late. So there are decisions you have to make with some of these guys that could end up on the wrong side of things I think Samuel ceiling is higher than Ingram. That's why I'm playing him. But I would not be surprised. This is a. Ann Ingram game on the road against empty. He's haven't really heard much from you because another guy, and I know we're sort of skipping around. But this is just a good discussion about all these running backs. You are very high on awesome Eker. So, you know, he's another guy that could really factor into this. But yeah, I mean, what do you think about the Steelers running backs and basically the running back position as a whole this week? I think it's dive definitely feels dicey other guy. We didn't talk about this in that mix Joe mixon. Yeah. Jamie who slightly mentioned. Okay. Terrible game script. I would rather start Ecuador. The Joe mixing I'd start Ecuador NPR over all of the new waiver wire guys. But you'd also start saying meals over mixing knowing that that there's there's some risk to that. And Anthony Lynn's Justin Jackson, it's going to get a few more little more work. Could mean Justin Jackson's going to get more work than us network. That's just not the way on projecting. It right now. Cincinnati is so bad against running back that I think both Ecuador and Jackson can be top twenty five guys. All right. Yeah. We'll get into chargers that might be our next two games. From now fans McDonald, he's a start right? Yeah. Great matchup start him. Yeah. Because because of Chelsea's performance last week the raiders have moved to the top of list of wills fancy points allowed to. Yeah. But he's not. He's not Kelsey. He's no. But that could also gotta catch a touch. There's also though Switzer and no essentially, Justin hunter. So definitely know Justin hunter he's on. I'm sorry. I around there's no just under potential switz- Switzer's concussion protocol. So we'll see if washed it gets up. But I mean McDonalds been right around seven targets, and if you're talking about scoring against the defense just get matchups. Yeah. There's no better. They are tied for the lead and touchdowns allowed to position they give the most fancy submission any raiders that you're starting this week. Martin is in the flex conversation shards of the flex conversation jerk. Dr Derek Jared, cook is obviously good. I can't I don't have enough confidence in car even though he had a good game last week. No. But Giorgis interesting because if you're gonna feed him targets that you get got last week, then he's in the number three receiver conversation. But I don't think anybody disappointed starting him with any comment. Right. I picked up Jordy Nelson to stash 'cause you're president of the club. No. He's got eleven targets last week at ten catches. They really just don't have anyone to throw it at this point. Pittsburgh DST is top eight Pittsburgh is top eight, ladies.

"But to talk about Lamar he's he's revolutionize the offense. They went from a struggling rushing game where they weren't getting anything. Flacco is throwing fifty times a game. Alex Collins has been struggling in the trenches the run game hasn't done. Well, and fantasy owners specifically were furious after he had such an incredible year one and they're expecting that again. So I caught a lot of heat on on social media for that specifically, but he's revolutionize I run game. You know, he put over one hundred yards in his first game Gus Edwards put over one hundred yards in his first game. So they both went over one hundred yards against Bengals. The next week Gus Edwards notched another hundred yard game. All of a sudden they have their capable of of getting yards on the ground, which they were just incapable of doing with flacco on the field. So this has been the biggest change in revolution. To the to the ravens offense. And that's what Lamar brings. He can throw. It us capable throwing. I know everybody else. Complains whether he can or whether you can't. But when he makes mistakes, it's okay because he's a rookie and we've seen Joe make the same stakes that Lamar will make but he's been in the league for ten eleven years now. And that's where the fans of started to really turn into Lamar fans, and and getting compassi the debate and start transitioning to the Lamar Jackson side of things because flacco makes these these own headed plays when he throws those goal line interceptions. Like it occurred against the Browns when Heathrow to Nick boil forcing a pass all of a sudden, you know, it's okay. When Lamar would do that. It's growing pains rookies learned through their mistakes. But Joe's been in the league for decade, it you just can't keep watching right? More fans. Can't at watching it. So that's been the biggest chance. So. Do you feel like there's a consensus amongst fans? They're ready for Lamar Jackson's era to begin. I would agree with that. Yes. They see me. They it's about seventy thirty seventy five twenty five, you know. But everybody's still respects Joe. And in its whole thing of you can like both of them. Everybody thinks that you can only like one or the other. And I think both are very well beloved already everybody so excited for the Lamar Jackson era. Some people don't wanna let Joe flacco go quite yet. Because you won them a Super Bowl. He went to the playoffs five straight years when he was starting. But in the end everybody does seem to go for Lamar Jackson starting now as opposed to next year. So I just before an ingenious gotta do this. Because I know how our readers are in our listeners. Are they will light me up like a Christmas tree in Times Square? If I don't clarify this. I was mistaken. I've thought Jackson went to high school in Georgia have crossed up with someone else. He actually went to high school in Florida. So let me be clear, I got my information wrong. There is that was completely off. Basically, the only I guess we have Lamar Jackson this evening coached by Bobby portray. No in college, which we have that time with Patrizia that we don't wanna talk about. This is this is real rough like. The backpack the first part, and then you Lincoln to Bobby Bobby procuring up on social media the way now. Didn't call my life. I didn't call it. Go ahead. Go ahead. That's Wayne this and having to talk about how this falcons offensive line will hold up against this wave and. Defensive front. I think that we're all well at least two us will be singing sad Sarah McLaughlin songs by the end of this on. It's gonna be great to be great. I was gonna call you out on it. But I was like man he's got it right in front of him. Probably. I don't wanna say because I thought he I thought he was in Florida, but I wasn't certain. And so I feel like I don't wanna give burned on the first time. I hop on this on the host incorrectly. So all right. All right. I just need you know, what the fixes here. It's a very simple when I need alcohol. That's it. So I'm going to get a drink after this and figure out how the hell edit all this. Relieve relieve it at all, you know, that's that's always my solution. I look at the end of this. Well, just publish it. As is. So..
Will Lamar Jackson or Joe Flacco Start as Ravens QB?
"Jackson. Joe flacco. What do you do? Joe? Flacco has been terrible. Lamar Jackson is the future. But one game. We ran around a lot. That didn't seem very professional. Then the second game he didn't run around that much and they want against what do you do? They start him in Atlanta. And you win that game. And you keep starting I think flacco played his last game in Baltimore. I really do. And that and that, you know, if John Harbaugh's job is in fact on the line item on my show two weeks ago. He said he didn't feel that in the building. I think he would you know, be wise to keep writing Lamar Jackson here. And they've done a great job of completely retooling their playbook and making this aid. Lamar Jackson offense on the spot navy really had Alex Collins active, and they've had Gus Edwards from Rutgers gusts and Lamar show is gonna come to Atlanta. And I think he's going to he's going to do very, well, they'll be seven and five and and no matter how Flaco hip feels. I just they just can't they just can't go back there. I think that they're just going to finish up these four games. Lamar Jackson and see how it rod.

"I'll more confidence in an. Upset if he's playing in that game. And not Joe flacco, you know, what? I mean. I I hope he gets a shot to be crazy. Looks for Kansas City. We all over them, and it could be him and Gus Edwards flashing for the ravens against Kansas. I'd be intrigued to see Jackson play at at the chiefs. But if it's flacco it just like, you know, you're gonna win right? It's sort of dog would be dollars. Joe flacco starting but it speaks to just the power of Lamar Jackson right now that he has become kind of must see television for NFL purposes him and Patrick Mahomes and other players obviously in that mix as well. But Jackson guy with two starts talking about being talked about in that vein, which is pretty neat there. The saints play on Thursday, and it's a little bit goofy to assess their their practice schedule because they began practice over the weekend. And you're not really paying attention to practice schedules. When you've got games, you're watching, but he was limited in practice on Tuesdays to find your he plays tomorrow to the saints and trae Kwan Smith to have any lean on whether and he'll be available for that gaming. It's the Cowboys. I do think he will be. If you look at what happened with the schedule. So after he was originally injured his foot that game. He was available to reporters wasn't like there was big injury news after the game. Remember, we just saw that. He was limited during the week being short week with thanksgiving in practice, but he was never seen in the locker room having his foot wrapped or in a boot or heavily taped. It this feels like maybe he wasn't quite ready for short weeks worth of play with the saints. Having postseason aspirations, obviously, you wanna be wise with with a with a receiver who so valuable. So now limited this week doesn't surprise me. I think if everything goes, well, there's no setbacks I fully expect him to play. Okay. That will be good news for the saints. I'll take this is early need him. They just continue to steamroll everybody in their way. But more for those that added trick once with after the ten catch game. Mike will be great news could be a potential maybe a flex player wide receiver three or four. Yeah. I would certainly say he's a flexible, I remember all thirty two teams are playing now. So the positions are as deep as. Been for what like six seven eight week season. You have a lot of options. But the last time we saw him he handled the forty one percent target share in arguably the best offense in the NFL. You certainly cannot ignore that. Of course, the week before you zero target. So it's certainly a little bit tricky. But you know, he has that massive upside, and I really like him as a player big fast downfield target in this saints often. So certainly Affleck's option less than a month and a half from right now trae Smith will turn twenty three time now for two fun. You tell us about twenty three in may. Well, then it is. I like me did with the numbers there.

"So even the guys who aren't benefiting individually are are taking note of the switch seventy six combine yard for John Brown. My Crabtree in two games. Lamar Jackson as the quarterback that being said crap did score against his old team yesterday. And Gus Edwards was awesome. Again, Twenty-three Russia's one hundred eighteen yards eleven point eight fantasy points, not massive. But Stefan, you Alex. Counts. Miss this game yesterday. Alex Collins just one last point on Lamar Jackson. I just want to say real quickly here field, which is that. I don't know if you caught this. But I thought I quote from John Harbaugh that said something about Joe flacco just saying like, well, we always initially thought it was going to be a three to four week injury. Which is the first time I've heard a timeline on him. And at like that was horrible buying himself. Some more time Lamar Jackson. They actually said when it very first happened. I think they're something that was floated around like that. But then there was like, hey, he's doing well. And so we'll see. Yeah. So so back to your Alex Collins comment field, obviously the foot injury. It was surprising. Because what happened was he was limited earlier in the week turns in a full practice, fry this usually think okay guys trending upward and then supposedly has a game workout and they make the decision not to plan. Now, we don't know exactly what happened during that period of time. But there's no doubt that Gus Edwards is certainly beneficiary with him out and it's questionable. Whether he might even still be the beneficiary of Lamar Jackson quarterback. If it went Alex Collins returns, if that happens this week, we don't yet know we will see what happens next for the ravens who are now as Matthew said right back in that number two wildcard spot in the AFC. Let's move along to the Sunday night game the Packers and the Vikings backers fall short twenty four to seventeen Aaron Jones was good again. What a surprise. They are found the end zone eighteen point three fantasy points. Devante Adams went five or six and nine with a touchdown. The way he catches the buffet have been to that route that he put on bureaus Aaron Rodgers just missed them in a very uncharacteristic day five for sixty nine with touchdown there. But I think the question is probably this Aaron Rodgers where we at with Aaron Rodgers right now if you are starting him are you feeling confident about doing so every single week going forward. The Packers have great final stretch of the season schedule. Matthew is the key one the rest of the way, of course. And course is I guess I'll tell you why. Because the schedule that you just said look so did did he have a great game this one. No we did. And under twelve fantasy points on the road at Minnesota. I think though somewhat to be expected, you know, he has traditionally struggled against Mike Zimmer defense, certainly when the game is in Minnesota head Demonte atoms wide open, just miss it. That's throw that normally nine times out of ten ninety nine times out of a hundred Aaron Rodgers hits. So and I think if he does like I think the narrative around him in this game changes a little bit here..

"Please check me because I was had a bit of an epiphany. I have Lamar Jackson projected for a hundred ninety nine passing yards. One hundred ninety last week. I've got him projected for eighty rushing yards which is what thirty less than last week. He had one hundred. Okay. You even flayed at his stats quite a bit. Wait how many rushing yards? You haven't pretty. Oh, yeah. Thirty seven fewer than last week. He had one hundred and fifty passing yards last week. Okay. So I took away ten Russia temps twenty ridiculous and gave him five pass. The thing is if he has two hundred eighty or two hundred sixty yards the reasonable expectation against the raiders is he's going to be responsible for two touchdowns. Whether it's to passing no rushing one passing one rushing regardless if he scores two touchdowns he's a top five quarterback with the rushing yards with the rushing hurts every quarterback since case keenum in week. One has thrown we'll touchdown passes against Oakland. But here's the problem. Nobody throws on them. They see the fewest path. Attempts per game in the NFL because they're run defense is so bad. The second most passing yards per attempt, but the fewest attempts so but I would say they still see more than twenty five path attempts per game. Yeah, they do. And that's what I'm expecting for lavar Jackson. Okay. So a hundred ninety passing yards or a hundred and seventy passing yards and eighty rushing yards and two touchdowns. That's a top five quarterback. You really have the stones the start of over whence and cousins and Rothlisberger. I do Jamie there. But I sort of over Rogers. And Rogers he has six Jamie hasn't twelve right now. So that's the guy like James says I'd started Mark Jackson Rogers wooden. But that's because he has Rogers really high Rogers is going to have a miserable game. If the track record of what the Vikings have done with Everson Griffen on the field Holtz. Yeah. But does Rogers ever have a miserable game. Well, he played them once with Griffin, and he had seventeen fancy points when we. It's all he had. He had heard his. Here's the game. Here's Nate neither week before week one. I think he'll be right around twenty points. Yeah minutes. I mean, you look at his games on the road. He's been under twenty five and two of his last three. Oh, the March Jackson. Wow. So I was planning on starting. Jameis Winston over Lamar Jackson. What would you guys? Do. I would still start James over. I was start James Overton. You guys have Jamisse vary. Hi, todd. I was starting Jackson over to Shawn Watson and Philip rivers. Yeah. That makes sense okeydokey. That means the March is going to be like tenth for Jamie. Lamar Jackson is going to be eleven eleven. Oh, yeah. I love it. Sorry about that. Gus edwards. Let's get let's start with Alex Collins. We just sitting him. One hundred percents. Gus Edwards Duke Johnson. Jalen Rashard rank them both were Mets. Edwards Johnson Rashard in both. I little word. I would probably lower Gus behind them in PR. Oh, boy, what a match up five point one yards per carry a running back. That's what Oakland's giving up. And it just if he gets the work. He's going to have a good game. Are there any high end running? Maybe like Philip Lindsay. Would you start Gus Edwards over him? No, okay. I know Jamie, wouldn't do this. But he would you start Edwards over Dalvand? Cook you ask these I like the way you do this in non PR Ivan once head of cook. Yes. Sure that I'm doing anything not intentional Gus Edwards assumed that you were looking at the rankings finding the guy had them one spot ahead..

"Michelle is right. He'll probably get fifteen or more carries. Six running backs about fifteen work Aries five of the six have scored fourteen or more fantasy points. Four of the six scored twenty one or more fantasy points in PR, huge games. And then there's the one guy who ruins the stat completely. And that's Frank or who had twenty carries for fifty three yards and one catch for six years other than Frank or every running back said fifteen and work areas against jets has had a really big game so Saudi Michelle is you get back on track. Big game for him. I think he's a low in number two. I'm a little worried about him in PR, cause I don't think he probably see the target must start in non PR and solid number two. I think the patriots go for forty here. Right. So I mean, Michelle had a bad game against Tennessee. Everybody had a better game against Tennessee. But you know. Would you have him behind Josh Adams and Gus Edwards? I do and based on what Michelle was doing when he was hot. That's crazy. Obviously. Right. I don't I'm worried about the patriots a little bit offense. Their offensive line hasn't played as will. Now. They're maybe they're all fixed after the bye. But I'm just a little concerned. Okay. James white or Michelle in non PR Michaud. James white is a must start in PR. Yes. Obviously it's going to be interesting because somebody's losing targets. If Ron comes back. Right. I don't know. We may feel a little differently about James white after this game. Well, like I said yesterday the guy who had been affected by gronk presence was Josh Gordon. Right. But that was one game. And it was like two games into his patriots tenure. No it was later than that. It was only three weeks ago three games ago. But he's only had he hasn't had more than fifty yards. Fifty one yards with gronk healthy. And he's been. But it is. It is. Okay. So Josh, Gordon. Julia gentleman. What do we think about them this game? I prefer Gordon, I prefer Gordon also. But I think both are in play here for sure I'm I'd be the only one I would kind of worry about would be maybe men and non PR. But I think you're still starting and gronkowski is number three in both formats behind Zakar. It's George Kittle starting gronk. Right to the jets. So are you starting any jets? I think row Elza flicks. Why? Got a touchdown possibility. He's scored once in the last six games has he that's it. Well, Maguire is only.

"You do something great right away. When people's expectations are low. How good was he supposed to be North Dakota state no-one Washington college football? How good was he supposed to be and he comes in and by year to like, they're beating everybody and they're going to have home field advantage. And they're going to win the Super Bowl, even though he was not there. Right. I think it gets without really much of a body of work. Just one season in the NFL too. I guess, but like one that's great undeniably. Great. Should that necessarily mean that you're just you? You are great. Maybe not maybe that's the lesson. The guy the guys that are great that we accept as great have been great for many, many years breeze. Brady rothlisburger there's a body of work that you like about that guy. Yeah. Man. That's impressive. That's five thousand yards. It's thirty touchdown. Whatever. There's there's a stats all over the place. You can point to in seasons and Super Bowls and whatever go, okay, he's great. We all not yet. One year. I don't know like, you know, fits had an incredible year with the jets in two thousand fifteen right? That was an incredible year. And he almost got to the garage, and then he turned into fits on the final day of the season and through four picks against the bills. Like, oh, I guess it's not really, okay. This has happened several times my career. So like if he is capable of having that year. And while the year was unfolding this is the point you just made about, you know, do do do your best work early. Because if you don't you're gonna be doubted all along and everyone doubted fits and even the jets, doubted it, and they were right to doubt it because that's who we is. But why do we believe that's how he is? Because when he came into the league, he's had this jagged sorta uneven, you know, you can never hold a job for very long. They were right in a way. But they haven't gotten better than that. So they're only so right until they do that. Right. And Sam darnold is easier idea to live with like, right? Here's a guy. Here's a top prospect from a big school. And there's no why wouldn't this work? Maybe it'll work. Maybe it won't. It doesn't have to work. We know that it doesn't have to work Fitzpatrick. So likable that of a form of what you just described happened here. He would I'm stats like, oh, well, we got our guy. No, you don't probably not. And then the bills next opportunity to draft someone even when it was EJ Manuel. They took it. They took that opportunity over going forward anymore with Ryan Fitzpatrick, and the buccaneers how many times have they taken their starting quarterback out in games this year for me they took every yesterday right happened yesterday. They took Fitz. Fitzpatrick started the season. They I think it was in Chicago week four or five they put they put Wisden in that game. Oh, well that was inevitable. And then he turned the ball over like crazy and Cincinnati's. They took him out of that game. And Fitzpatrick got them back to maybe even one. I don't know they got they got almost got all the way they lost at the very end. I think almost pulled that game out guys amazing. And then yesterday against the giants three picks. I think I mean, it doesn't even get the half. I believe so. There's a body of work. I'm not, you know, everybody likes Ryan Fitzpatrick. Sure. Yeah. You root for them? This is what happens. This is. What what tends to happen? He did not get that first stage of like I've mentioned this with Josh Allen a lot lately. Like, Josh Allen is getting because of when he was drafted and that investment he's getting every chance he's going to get every chance to make it and the other guys that are in and out here won't Mckee. He's going into ahead of Matt Matt Barkley why? Because he was drafted seventh wasn't better than that Barkley in any game. Maybe but he's going in. And it also makes sense. Sir casting because I might sound about that. That's how it should work. I think makes sense because who is Barkley but Barkley does not have those Fitzpatrick years, you know, where like it's enough games. He doesn't even. Yeah. That's right. Where you feel like you might know. I mean, another thing about Fitzpatrick to is how many different offenses is it. How many different coaches is it how many different, you know, all the different everything terminology all the stuff that he's had to relearn. You know, it's not like he would be great necessarily on one team all those years. But it's always know everything every two years, it's like all new for him. So I liked yesterday. Comebacks the Pittsburgh game. The not the blow out the two other too late games were like last second field goal wins upset wins. Denver and Oakland. Right. Right. Lot of fantasy drama. These are critical days in fancy football. I'm here to tell you, and there is a lot of drama. I gotta do you know about the thing with Paul and the kickers. I know I know I don't know. No, I make you sound like you don't wanna know you're making a face. I just I, you know, I critical days I'm done. The guy plow my team into a landfill. It did I'm done spoiler. Next week. I'm in trouble. Plucky plucky team. I I'm nowhere. Anybody else? Play ESPN and ever. To be easier. If I just tell you what happened. So Mike kicker was catton's RO from the buccaneers who got caught last week. If you've heard us talk about this league. There's a strict moves limit. So the number one priority on my mind about this league is always do. I have room to make a move. Do. I need to make a move rather? Just wait all the way into the playoffs. If need be case, there's an injury in case Gus Edwards suddenly shows up and you want Gus Edwards on your team that actually might be a good idea. I don't even know what that is. No. No, okay. So. And you know, how bad is that? Do should. I Joe, no. You wouldn't have known who he was before yesterday. Okay. All right, good. I didn't I did not get to sit and just watch. What if you did what a good person would do yesterday? If you have a family and not just watch the NFL the whole day, then you might not know Gus Edwards. So I left. There's a lot could say I left the buccaneer. The XBox Buchan kicker in my lineup into yesterday because I wanted to make sure I needed to make that move. If I could wait if I could beat him without doing that. Then that's just that's great. And then I can save the move and pick somebody, you know, if I pick a kick her up, and he gets hurt they picked Cody parkey up two weeks ago or met Bryant or one of these guys they get hurt now. So I wanted to put it off as long as they could. It's three o'clock. Paul has all the giants. I've played Paul twice. Right. Yes. He's going to beat me. He beat me. The first time he probably going to beat me. Barclays got Ingram. Right. That's five touchdowns yesterday. So I wanted to see that game. And if it's four o'clock in the giants are having a terrible day. I might not do anything. I might take my chances. I might be way ahead, but that's not an option. So I go, and I there's a process to it you go to players and then I decided to pick. The chargers kicker. I didn't pick the Kansas City kicker because they have the by next week. Then I would have this problem next week. So I pick the chargers kicker, and it won't let me drop cabins RO because Tampa is playing. Anybody ever had that? What was done on the team anymore? Oh, wow. That's weird. Right. He's not on the team. But you still because they're in action. Like that doesn't make any sense. Maybe I could have moved him to bench. But I just never thought I would have had to do that. Yeah. He was cut. He's a free agent. And the fact that Tampa's playing is irrelevant. So I pick you there's the process I picked up the charger guy who do you want to cut and then only guys to cut guys whose games hasn't started yet. So case keenum, I ended up cutting case keenum, but then I thought I'll be able to move him in and I press confirm. So now the transaction is official and I can't move him into the lineup because the buccaneers are on the field. How about that? Yeah. That's kinda weird. So I think I have grounds, but I'm. You know? I it depends. How early does if girly gets between twenty and thirty points. I will have I will have a gripe of a beef. If he doesn't because more and fine if it gets less, I'll lose Peter way. All right. This is an ESPN thing. They don't they don't have changed the team. Someone gets caught you know, right now to see like former bills on there. And there's there's a Jerome Felton still in the bills Dan carpenter. They just don't update it. You have grounds for sure. It's an should be. I'd be outraged outraged out it might not matter. But I did check in with Paul's in Pittsburgh, where the sabers I did check in with them. Like, I want to bring this up Paul could probably just fix it. I'm playing him though, whenever they don't want to ask him to do that. It's okay. With me if he offers to do that. But I don't know what does the league do in situations like this. I think you've kind of stock. So I don't know. But that's kind of frustrating. Could you could say it's my mistake. I could have known that you, wait you. Okay. Well, I don't know. I could have known that. I didn't I you know, I guess you could say that. But so critical days speaking of the sabres they are in Pittsburgh. And this is cool. They won in Winnipeg eminent soda as you probably know and it's the penguins tonight. And the penguins have been losing its no Crosby. And let's talk about that. Look at the standings a little bit robbery will be on at five today. It's pre game at six for sabres and penguins NFL sabres bill's eighty three oh five fifty for us. Mike Chopin the bulldog.

"At that matchup if you can get there that you're thinking you could win if you have a week sixteen so stunned might surprise you. But I thought he did well engine Peterson can't touchdowns in that game. Yeah. He did. Good. Yeah. I mean, all helium fifty one rushing granted. But two touchdowns gave him seventeen fantasy points which could have helped your team win. Absolutely. And I think we need to talk about this newcomer Gus Edwards running back the ravens undrafted layer. Yeah. He had seventeen carries in that new read option offense with the with the ravens him and Lamar Jackson. We gotta talk about Marge axel bit in the show, but running back wise Gusaid where it's seventeen carries one hundred fifteen touchdown. And you know, what the raven Keefe to that is on the first drive of the game. Lamar Jackson didn't throw a pass and a twenty seven Tim total Edwards did seventeen. So yes, they were two yards apart each touch but touchdown for Edwards. Yeah. In you know, what this offense? The ravens offense, Alex Collins buck Allen, those aren't guys that are so good that Gus over can't still some time. And I think yesterday he proved that he could be used as a weapon he's gotta keep your eye on. So a big game for him as well. So do you wanna do another running back? Or would you go? Let's go. Let's go out receiver. I'll let you go. I I know there's a lot of good receivers yesterday. A lot of big games. I'll go first I'll talk about it because he was another that I had a really strong opinion on doing. Well, this week that was t y Hilton T Y Hilton. I don't know what it is about the titans, but he seems to own them. Andrew luck. Actually, he's now ten Inoguchi titans in his career, but TY he'll always shows up against the titans thirty six fancy poise. He had nine catches one hundred fifty five yards two touchdowns. Dory. Jackson just has his handful has it hands full with this guy. I mean in a door Jackson is a phenomenal sprinter athlete and TY bows. By all the time. There's just sometimes guy has the other guys number. He really does he really has his number. So for me to why Hilton? I mean, he seems to have these games every once in a while. This was the first game this year that he had over. Eighteen fantasy points. But he doesn't in a big way with thirty six. So if you stuck with them, you were warded, although he had some games where in the before that made you think maybe I shouldn't play him. So. You know, unfortunately, some people out there probably didn't start them, which is sad..
