"He's definitely has uncommon size. He's not separating that much sometimes as routes look like he's running and like half speed and sometimes he looks like he's running at full speed when he's running at full speed looks dangerous but it might be more like a straight line thing versus you know his ability to like wiggle and cut. Maybe he just doesn't have as much that is is. He looked like he had in college. i i don't know if he's a bilo i don't know if he's someone that i would i. Would i give away the bottom piece on the bench for sure what i give away my best bench player form. Probably sure if. I needed a tight end but i also don't know if people are willing to part with them yet although i did see one of my keeper leagues someone cut him. They didn't trade him. They caught him. So i don't quite understand that. I'm gonna get my waiver. Claims in for kyle pits in that format for sure. But i'm i'm a little bit nervous about the combination of him not getting open consistently and matt ryan checking down like alex smith. You can tell them ryan's old is offensive. Line something that he doesn't trust. And that's why cordell patterson and mike davis have had such a role in passing game. It's why calvin really hasn't delivered amazing numbers who the first three weeks of the season and it's why pits has had. I guess modest targets but excluding week three. That was pretty pitiful but he really hasn't delivered a big game yet. Twelve pr points and we to. I don't know if that's really you know a big game. I don't know if that's what we drafted him to be. I think the answer is no so would you say. Let's say tyler higby and south. They're like you're insinuating that i've got to give up tyler higby and something else i am because yet carl pits and there's nothing out there that suggests that tyler higby plus another decent plan that you're gonna come with bench player with random bolden or Tie johnson jacoby myer. And you know. I think i'd rather have myers and higby okay. Because more reason why if you make that trade the only reason why you're acquiring because you heard that he was good. Well i'm we expect. Rookie wide receivers get this. Lo starts and they almost always do. It's understandable for rookie. Tight end gets off to a slow start. We're just less confident that he's going to turn it on because rookie tight ends typically. Don't but if you believe in hits this might like last week. We said on this show one week ago. This is your best chance to bilo. I'm mark andrews. George cadle and that is probably true unless they struggle later in the year different though than they are different. And you don't have to pay as much for kyle pits but this is might might be might be your best chance to buy low on pitts agreed. And maybe he's just gonna pitch better have another planet tight end just in case..

"Krieger. Back for my fourth and final segment of today's show. So i have one more game to recap from the full sixteen game week. One sleet and then i'm going to get into the ten best games for week. Two things to watch from those games what to be looking for and then some other questions week to that we can find out. And then we'll talk a lot about the future of this season. And then i'm gonna get into a little bit of a college football overview and that should wrap up for today's show so my final game that i'm going to recap is the rams versus the bears. The rams one thirty four to fourteen twenty point win rams offense just looked incredible and not only. Did you look incredible. Matt stafford losing credible. He looked happy. He looked so excited to be anywhere. But playing for the detroit. Lions and if the offense apart the week matt stafford was threw for three to twenty yards three touchdowns no picks was hitting big. Plays was hitting stuff over the middle. I mean he's going to be able to execute. Shaw mcveigh's offense exactly how sean mcvay designed in. I think it's just. The excitement was exuding from both of those guys so they do do spreading it around rams but would have weapons tyler. Higby jefferson is a great speedy. Wideout deep threat cooper cup robert woods coming out you kind of pick your poison type deal. Stafford mets average is really going to shine this year. With sean mcvay. I was skeptical. But it really was a match made in heaven. And i don't know who's gonna win the nfc west division. But i know the rams are going to be tough to be. And i i just.

"I would take this street so you don't have to worry about dreaming titans so i gotta push back just a little bit here. Because i do think josh allen maybe a little bit too valuable. The thing about evan ingram is. He did practice in full pads. I think it was either this morning or yesterday so i think there was some question with respect to his injury. I don't like evan ingraham either. I of course. I agree that mark andrews is better in several different ways but one thing to consider with aaron aaron rodgers that david back tiaras on pop and he's not going to play. I guess the first six games so the best pass blocking left tackle in the entire league is not there for aaron rogers. So i think you might just slot rogers down just a touch. And i just think josh allen is too strong here i take the risk with ingram or the streaming personal. Yeah the backyard thing is interesting. He played without bahktiar for. I think six games last year i think seven actually think five regular season and postseason and rogers tore it up. He was great without bachtiar. But that doesn't mean it will happen again. It's still is a major injury. There's no question they also don't have last year. Senator cory linzie the packers probably gonna be starting to rookies on their offensive line. So yeah that is a strike against him as far as the greater late tight end. Strategy goes it's catchy. It's great but last night thursday night. I drafted and gerald. Everett is my starting tight end. I hate that. I just missed out on. Kyle pits in the fifth round. I just missed out on tyler. Higby and like the ninth round or something. I would have been happy with that. these guys went one or two picks before me. So i have gerald everett and i have ingram and i hate it but i am pretty solid everywhere else and i talked. I don't want to repeat this too much. As i talked about this on yesterday. Show but what. I have learned through the years that we You know vance mcdonald was a guy that we were excited about. As like titan eight eighty. Adp or something a few years ago and it's just. This is such a horrible. That i'm not going to pass up a guy like devante smith or something like that to take tyler higby. I'd rather just stream the position. And i'm not gonna pass players at other positions that i think can be great so that's why i'm at greater late because he's just you know i can get tyler higby. He'll be fine. I get gerald ever like you know the ever you can get super late. But jonah smith the odds of them really making an impact to me are very low and they won't be that much better than the waiver wire pickups. So that's why. I just kind of kept neglecting it and settled on everett and ingram and see what happens. I'll be fine streaming. But i loaded up at other positions. Adam break the tie. would you take it. I would do the trade. I would do andrew. Rogers for brown and ingram i would but i see both sides. All right from the steerage ten team half pr one quarterback two receivers one flex. I have the tenth pick and The second pick is offered me a trade. It's his so this by the way is a dynasty drafts. I'm sorry i think. I think that it is so. Here's the tenth pick. And he's been offered the number two pick for his rounds one.

Podcast episode enjoy everyone. We do have some unfinished business with matthew staffer. I said. I thought it was a top five quarterback bro Planned please can be that. I think he can be and fantasy. I'm not saying like ripley by think he can be that The chime in a second Defend my point. And then i'll let you chime in in a second matthew stafford on the lions his he's had. He was very successful. With calvin johnson. But we have to think he's never had a great team around him. You know the defense hasn't been good. The offense line hasn't been good last season. He was along the ball to margaret jones. Know kenny golladay is good. But he's never really had a solid number two receiver end plus the fact that is the detroit lions whom not won a playoff game since nineteen ninety one. And now he's going to team in the rams. You have robert woods a very consistent success. Oh receiver cooper cup. Who we know he can be really good. And then we have tyler higby we have all these guys offense and now they have a great defense to help. Matthew stafford out. And we saw jared goff could be successful offense and jarred. Golf wasn't even a guy who could sling the ball. Deep now jared. Goff was kinda like alex. My first option a second off option. No but he was still doing putting decent numbers in the offense and sawn mcveigh's an offensive genius and from everything. The shaw mcveigh's saying it's like mad and everything i've been here. I think this this guy has a genuine possibility to make the best year of his career with the best team that he's ever been on in his career a superbowl caliber team. Now with matthew stafford. I'll let.

Or you're gonna add that up and so you can watch an eleven minute and youtube video of a skateboarder bouncing his nuts off a railing. Is that what we're doing. Someone's texted me wide instead of thankyou. Ty your nuts off epic back here on the richeisenshow everybody okay. All right all right. Chris tell me about it. Hey rich your fantasy out. How what's the longest. Somebody went to draft a player. Because your fantasy league your nfl. Fantasy league is famously on time in timed drafting of players. They could take as long as they want. What's the longest somebody took to draft. It wasn't so much over. There wasn't an egregious like twenty minute. Walk like we've had in years past however there was one pick that was just what absolutely brutal so our first two rounds or are right so when we get started we start quote unquote in the third round. Yes so in. The fifth round with his third pick one of our buddies took an obviously no no disrespect to this specific player. But he took tyler higby in the third round and did he. How long did it take. I'm not concerned about the general. I'm just talking about probably ten minutes for him to come up with that decision so beyond the pale. He took him before. You know rogers and tom brady and prescott. What so angry and upset really bad takes ten minutes to to to make an egregious pick on just the fantasy value right. Just average draft position like right even rage. Other quarterbacks are on the board he makes you wait ten minutes for the worst possible selection. Come up with tight. End would probably admit to you. I should not be this early. Over over aaron rodgers and brady and dak and herbert. And that's over justin. Herbert quarterback that early i understand shouldn't be taken tyler. Higby somebody wait ten minutes to. That's what's he physically there because they're so he was one of the five drafting remotely. So you had five drafting remotely. Yeah and nine physically physically. Okay rich i think i figured it out. These guys just really liked each other spending time with terrific. Because that's the only reason that i can spend ten minutes and not put some rather hang out with somebody without something taking this long. So how long was the draft. I know so when i called it on friday. I was seven and a half hour noon. You thought seven o'clock at seven o'clock we the first pick went off at twelve. Sixteen local tampa. What you sing. A national anthem took flyover while we give out. We talk about last season. Cap the awards and everything and then we get gone. Oh god so. There's a pre-game.

"Sometimes you say one more. No-one no-one to cash. Yes i'm casting out so on a per game basis. I think jalen hurts. Might even be better than ryan tannehill. But i do still have the shawn watson fears on the season of if he's going to ruin a quarterback in the nfl. I think it would probably be jalen hurts. So i'm going to take ryan tannehill and of course team nine right after me. Takes jalen hurts an mike. You're on the clock to pick ninth and tenth round picks. Here what are you doing Seeing ryan tannehill jalen hurts. Go back to pack ease frustrating. I was wondering if you'd be upset about that. Because those are my That's the end of the top ten quarterbacks that i'm excited to draft that you've been you took trae lance In the seventh round there so now quarterback becomes a full punt for me. I'm going to fully send that quarterback position and there's a couple of guys that i'm interested in. I'm going to take my tied in ca some of these some of these crazy teams are taking their their seconds and jason needs one. Although i would project. Jason take tyler higby. I will enjoy my mark andrews. Thank you very. Mo- yes ma'am teague. That feels good such an full. Mattie draws dirt aced cashing out for me as well. i'm taking irv smith from the minnesota. Vikings i haven't he rose for me over the off season seeing and be more and more involved Adam feeling was my eyes player. I'm concerned about the age it. He'll build productive player. But i think that things are starting to trail off for him and earth smith veer. Young tight end kyle. Rudolph is out of the way for irv to swerve as they they Say on the twitter of urban. They let her. They're gonna let her of swerve hopefully for this team and then wide receiver. There's really good value. Picks of antonio brown corey davis and michael pittman. I'll be shocked if michael is now you pick. It is in fact my pick. Michael had i not been so secure with my my four wide receivers loving them with devante smith than i would have gone with corey. Davis take some save valium. Safe safe volume. But i'm gonna go upside with all right. It'll be interesting mike. Because you are putting the quarterback position but you know that will probably take one. Yeah so we'll have a little square little battle jason. Who's your tenth round. Pick my tenth round. Pick i'm looking between a couple of wide receivers and a couple of running backs. I like corey davis alike. Darnall mooney Darnall mooney probably won't take. Because i've got allen robinson don't really wanna stack both outsource and at running back. Look i i. I think gus edwards is just as yet he'll At where he's going right now. He is not going to catch the ball but he's on a run first offense. He's a good running back. They paid him. He's going to get used. And if you look at what happened once. They kind of moved on from mark ingram last year he was averaging like ten fancy points a game. So this comes down to my roster. Do i need more help. Because i'm happy with corey davis. I'm happy with gus edwards at running back with aaron jones joe mixing and damian harrison wide receiver. I've got alan robinson. Amari cooper brandon euch and curtis samuel that curtis samuel pick means. I'm going gus bus. Fueled up yeah. I like it all right. Well i was going. Corey davis darnall mooney. Whichever one fell back to me. After this gus pick lawrence davis went next which means i feel good about taking where i did. Mooney was inconsideration but the decision. I made with him was i can get them later and worked out. So i'll take darnold mooney. Eighth pick of the tenth round higby gallup. Our first defense off the board hard men goes in the eleventh round here and coming back around to me. The tough question. Every fantasy players stares down wind. Do i take aj green and you know. The truth is i would. I didn't want to say it out loud. But i've been struggling since the six round. Yes of windu. Do i select. Aj grants a big problem. So i'm taking him here. I know that. I'm gonna be used a defense and probably another quarterback for my final two picks so this was the last position player of note that i i'm looking at devante or i'm sorry All wound jamal williams williams there in the eleventh round. I think that is. That's incredible the starting running back week. One he could be just the primary running back week. Wanda and look could re-injure the under swift could get reinjured. That is definitely in in the cards. Your gun and lions running back. Yeah but at least you have some volume and jamaal williams. Look if he gets an opportunity week one and he's and he's out on the field. I mean this is a brand new coaching staff. It could boost the faith that they really need to get him even more involved. I am backup on the clock. I'm balanced wide receiver at running back. And i feel like i've got a lot of safe options. I don't feel the need to grab like russell gauge is a value here. But he's probably not going to crack this roster. I'm looking for someone who could go nuclear. Who could surprise. That means. i'm looking at henry. Rugs or elisa more one of those two players to truly Breakout do something special. It is more common that you're to does it than rookie especially paired with a rookie quarterback. So i'm gonna take henry rugs here. Okay you could choose to go bryan edwards Yep same team. Just trying to say who's going to be the actual number two to darren waller mike you could. You could probably go bryan edwards here. I could. But i had a plan that i formulated. And it is come to fruition. I'm going to take my quarterback So i'm looking at nfl week one. Because i've completely punted so. I'm just i'm streaming week. One here and looking at the match ups and to me with the quarterbacks left the to juiciest ones matt ryan at home against philadelphia and kirk cousins against the cincinnati bengals. I think both of those are solid options stack. I could take the earth stack. That is that is a good point. But i'm gonna take matt ryan Against the philadelphia eagles. And andy took trae lance. But i will take justin fields. Who also he does not have the same upside to me is trey lance. But once he gets on the field. He has quarterback one. He has top ten upside now. One thought could have been to go. Zach wilson there too. Because you know you're going to see them week one or And roll the dice. Yes you could definitely roll the dice. I am i am. I don't want to start him week. One i want to see that. I i wanna see zach wilson play an actual real set of nfl starters and see if he looks just as good all right all right. I'm on the clock my last positional. Pick I went wide receiver. Trama running back here. And i'm taking a guy that i think could surprise. I i don't have it. Projected that way and in the twelfth round. But i do think that there is a world. All i love it where sony very involved. It becomes the goal line guy on a on a strong offense in the twelfth round. I'm going to take the shot on sony. now. I love that pick. I'm gonna take my week. One starter of trae lance doesn't start here with my last position. Pick it's kirk cousins against cincinnati in week one very.

"Football is right around the corner today. We're going through our consensus wide receiver. Reggie everybody likes wide receiver. Don't they wide receiver right gang. Judge go this is a big one guy. You can win your drafts with a lot of these wide. Receivers that we're about to talk about even if you drop them round one and round two and round three. Yes you certainly can. But we'll get to some. They can get much later. That are going to provide a lot of value in two thousand twenty one year. Yeah i can honestly say that. The one draft strategy to draft chinese. I've never taken a quarterback around one. And i have not taken a wide receiver in round one of any of my drought so far even super flex even supervise just getting. We just got some breaking news on sleeper that darryl henderson was injured in practice not return man would that be a huge injury to the rams funk season is funky town yeah davy jones. One of 'em jake fog or just a staffer. The woods cup higby season all adds to a man there on. Oh i hit. He's not gonna do me dirty two years in a row. That was a a when you're saying he is buy his jersey. If you finish for you. Oh i think i have to. That's too bad center role egg. I mean i. I don't own for that would be the economic shared the name first letter of the last name. I think it's a lot gusting at speaking injury. In preseason at all the things what are some preseason thoughts on wide receivers anything standing out or any injuries standing out anything. We should be on the lookout for as we get closer to the season. Starting all it's been kind of interesting like if you go to. Espn and just look. At the wide receivers. Half of them are listed as questionable. We're still a couple of weeks away from the season. So it's not overly alarming at this point but there are some injuries that are more alarming than others. That will get shortly. But let's start with our top wide. Receivers are we have devante adams tyreek hill stefan big calvin ridley the andrea hopkins and aj brown rounding out our top six. Which one of these guys do you wanna talk about. I think we could talk about devante. Adams tyreek hill. Just be as. I think i flip flop though is at least thirty times this off season gone back and forth between the two especially with rogers coming back. I don't wanna put davante adams at number one. You know contract year roger. They're going to go the big last dance. He's going to have all of the targets that he wants think he can get two hundred targets in a season. I don't but i think he's going to pace wide receivers when it comes to target. So i have devante adam just my number one. As well i think the touchdown potential. He is the favourite to lead the league in receiving touchdowns this year. Aaron rodgers coming back. That chemistry is as good as any quarterback wide receiver in the entire league. Yeah i had tyreek hill number one until aaron rodgers. I made it official that he was coming back and then davante adams shot right back up to number one. I have devante at number two tyreek at one. Like i said i flip flop all over but even as projections. I have devante adams at one hundred and sixty five targets. And i think that's conservative to be honest. I think it is still i. I got about one seventy five. Yeah i don't think he comes anywhere near two hundred I have team range. That one one sixty one seventy i. I also kind of a little bit worried. I think this offense could be worse than it was last year and cobb amari rounders are two factors that they did not have last year. That are legitimate receiving options. I do think that devante adam. I'm not gonna say this. I think he could actually Kind of disappoints fantasy owners this year. I'm not projecting it that way. But i see the path to it happening this year. Unlike in yourself.

Yeah losing well. There are no losers in this poker tournament. we'll tell you about. It is for charity. It is foreseen jude. You have an opportunity to get in a much more information coming up in a little bit and plan on reading a few podcast league entries as well as i have made my selections for the monday night draft but we also have the for the people league so there are some more spots available this monday. Yeah coming up monday night. Eight pm all right. The biggest adp riser. That we haven't talked about lately. Okay knock gonna make another james robinson segment the biggest adp riser. That we haven't talked about lately is logan thomas. Dave did talk about around. Remember what show. It was on But he said that. Thomas is tight end seven now but he is now up twenty four spots to one hundred and third overall same. Adp's tyler higby. So they're about. Their tied is tied at nine and ten. Behind noah behind. Our scott ahead of robert tony and ahead of herb smith. Jamie d. get it you understand. Why logan thomas is now moving up to around. Pick one hundred. Yeah he's my number seven seventy and in In npr's well you know you. Just look at that group of guys in fancy smith Higby Strengthening guys that are in that range Koseki scholars great there. By the way got it no arbitrage them while hurts is there you look at the way. Fitzpatrick has looked for him. In the in the preseason the training camp reports have been positive. curtis samuel not been on the field. So thomas could easily be the second best pass catcher in this offense and You know we ought patrick. Do some nice things with with make over the last couple years as well so it's a messy group. But you know you have at least a strong finish thomas last year and a guy who Maybe you know took a little while to come into his own position. So i'll buy you for anybody not buying in. I struggle with it Just because so much of his success last year was volume driven. He wasn't particularly efficient. Sixty five percent catch rate on a relatively. Low dot isn't great ten yards per target or nine point three yards per reception. Excuse me through the six hundred one times. I don't think they're going to have that much volume this season. Especially if the defense takes that step forward but he is my tight end eight. So i don't necessarily have a problem with him. Moving up.

"Of a code as they give out all right all right all right. Maybe i'll maybe i'll do it. I signed up your code. Get like i any more than that. I use my code tier. Three noah fant dallas scattered. Tyler higby curious about all these guys. Teddy bridgewater the starting quarterback in denver announced today. What what does that mean. Joe for fans and the rest of the broncos pass catching. I think it means it's going to be more consistent and and you know we know what teddy bridgewater is probably a top thirty two quarterback but probably not in the in the area where a gene isn't looking to upgrade or him but i think he's somebody who can competently get the ball in the hands of receivers and remembering carolina. He supported three top. Twenty five fantasy wide receivers last year so no fan. I think's going to benefit from that. I think he's one of the top three targets here along with jerry. Judy who might love and courtly sutton this year of no advancement dealing with some injuries in training camp and still wanna see that level of consistency out of him. There are some questions about him. Which is why he's in this tier. He's vying for targets with judy sutton in k. J. hamblur and tim patrick and they're going to run the ball so you there's there's a level of concern there when it comes to dallas qatar. Zakar is still in philadelphia. That's the concern is zakar. It's wasn't wasn't in philadelphia. I'd have got her above logan. Thomas at that's where i had him earlier this off season but you have to adjust based on news or the lack thereof so unfortunately ross. that was. that was the problem with dow wisconsin. I think he's more talented than earth. At this point hurts has been looking for him in camp. But they're still the competition with zach. Ertz there tyler. Higby last year. One of the breakout. But he split snaps gerald everett. Gerald everett's gone. They add over one hundred and thirty targets combined magic stafford's in but they still viewed as a rotational player. They have bryson hopkins whom they drafted in the fourth round last year. Very clearly with the eye towards gerald everett moving on in the off season which happened then. They drafted jacob harris this season. So i still have questions on higby if you were to ask me who. I feel the best about from this year in terms of roll. It would be higby though. I just don't know how many targets he's gonna get how much bryson hopkins gonna play. How much jacob harris fly. So i know he's in your tier five or whatever but i really think irks looks good man. I mean when i had been eagles practices urges look good. He stayed after the walk through to catch extra balls. You look good in the first preseason game when he got time you know. I think he's a really interesting one. There's all that speculation. he's not gonna be there. I don't i mean. I kind of feel like it was going to happen. It would have already. But but dude. I'm telling you he. He looks good. He looks like the zach ertz. we knew from fifteen through nineteen. Or whatever. And i think..

My guys. this year can be had after the eighth round of fantasy football drafts in the last two discount drafted. Yeah the last to my guys. That i have today are both after the ten th round and so my my second my guy. The timing is everything you ever heard that you know tie is everything. Sometimes things just need to come together in the right time. Sometimes you could be a little early. The late tar timing. Is everything like how you wrote on the board before me tyler. Higby rams tied in is my second. My i on the board forever. No i my point is that i love this guy and i completely agree. He's he's a phenomenal target. And a great mike guy. Yes the hague-based himself. I was completely out on him last year. I spent the entire offseason pushing back against breakout hopes for tyler higby. I didn't believe that the season in trend where he was like the tight end one five. Three nine one. He ended that year. I didn't think it was enough to you. Know go all in on him. Last year with with gerald everett coming back into the fold after the injury but this year he is a my guy. Due to the breakout potential combined with the fantasy draft value of picking them up as the tide in twelve drafts after the ten th round. Let's start with the argument for look. You know gerald. I've gone so that's a piece of the puzzle. right sean. mcvay came out and said hey tyler is the guy and going to be an intricate part of this offense and that often is changing. That offense has matthew stafford at quarterback. Everett's gone but josh reynolds is gone and matthew stafford is going to do more for the tight. End position than jared goff does in three eta the last four years in detroit. Lions tight end saw more than twenty one percent of the teams targets. He was matthew stafford on the other. End of a lot of the hopkinson breakout last year. This is a team in detroit. He had kenny golladay. Marvin jones golden tate for years. He had elite wide receiver options. He still involved the tide imposition and gave them a large target share. So we've seen the sample size that got people hot and bothered about tyler higby Two years ago so we know that in a given stretch he can go out and deliver tied in numbers. But what i like about him is when i look at ends tied in breakouts. I'm not looking for p. P p r hope. I'm looking for players. That do the george kill noah fan mark andrews big playability and even last year with gerald. He was in the top half in yards after the catch. He had the six most twenty plus yard receptions at the position. So you get big. Plays from tyler higby. So i'm really really excited about the value and upside. I know jason. You're in the same boat. We've liked higby. Since the the the birth of the off season tyler higby has been on our radar as well. You know this team is. It's his tight end room now And you know everything at camp has looked outstanding. So i'm really excited about what he offers fantasy players who miss out on the the kelsey. Waller kittle just go. He'd be late in the mock draft. Yeah i mean the the. I think some of the worst picks right now are the mid late tight ends. Who are all going to disappoint but take you away from taking a really valuable prospect at running back or wide receiver when you're drafting a dallas gutter. It's a matter of value for higby. I don't think any of us think he's gonna be the number one tight end but when it allows higby what he does he lets the rest of your roster be great and then he's better than some of the titans you buy. What's the cost on hopkinson. right now. He is a fifth round. So i have a higher fantasy projection for tyler than teacher hawkins. Oh my so like the end of the year. Fancy production is i have. I just barely but he is higher. So if there if there's even a question that you believe that those two guys could be close together and you get one five rounds later like you. You said the cost hodkinson is probably prohibitive for you. Yeah just because of the wide receivers you love in the fifth round. Yes it's true. It's true i i same for the wide receivers you love in the tenth. That is not the same for the wide receivers. I love in the ten. Th that's true. All right. My second. My i am so excited about this one. I just think he is being completely disrespected because of emotions. And that is clyde edwards. Larry is here clyde guy. He's he's mcleod guy Chiefs running back coming into his pride rider. Clyde okay okay. Clyde her die glenda fighter died. About clyde or clyde No stay. I've i've got my guy mike. Hi clyde were delirious. Go back to the Look he's a very very safe player. And i think he has an incredibly high ceiling. Here's a reminder of his rookie year sadness disappointment excruciating pain. He sucked except not really. He had eleven hundred yards and before he got injured in week. Twelve he was the rb eleven through that time. He was just disappointing because people were taking them number four in the super bowl last year at the number four spot we had an argument between alvin kamara and clydes lair when you draft someone that high. And they're the running back eleven and then get injured. You're just oh man. He's a complete disappointment but his floor is as high as any player..

"But regardless you know him. Being paired up with jared goff. I think it can work because i think You know golf is gonna look for security blanket. I think he's that guy I'm not a big fan of the wide receiving core for the lions. I mean i think could be okay but the lions are just not going to be a good team this year. But you know i think golfing hodkinson. I think it could work. you know. Goff lights to You know target the tight ends back when he was with the rams you know between be an everett i think hopkinson can definitely benefit from golf being as qb. Obviously it is definitely a downgrade from stafford. But i think awful target. The tight ends a lot more You know just. Because i feel like the receivers you know. It's a little a little iffy with them. But yeah after that Like i said logan thomas. i think he's going to do really well with With fitzpatrick i think this could be a big year for him as well. I think he can do more of the same of what he did. Last year. You know and this was with alex. Smith is as quarterback and twain haskins. Now let's see what he does with fitzpatrick who you know. I think is a more explosive quarterback. Now i've talked about the inconsistencies with fitzpatrick a lot. But i do think there will be a lot of games where fitzpatrick does really well in. The offense will definitely benefit from that. So logan thomas other tight end I also of dallas goddard. It was. I was debating on it as going through the tight end. Listening listing for here too. But you know. I think zakar. He's not going to have to re establish himself as a tight end until he does that. I'm kind of just going to assume that. God is going to get the bulk of the targets in terms of the tight ends and you know when he plays a decent tight end. It's just you know last year he did. You know deal with injuries. He missed the handful of games. But you know when he played he was decent and i do think that a lot of people will be drafting him. Hi this year then. I was wherever albertan. I mean he was great last year with the packers really Came on strong towards the you know the kind of the middle end of last year. You know scoring five touchdowns in five consecutive games. You know Obviously had that three touchdown performance in week. Four kind put people on notice and then he kinda cooled off In the middle of the season and then towards the touchdown in five straight games you know so. We'll have to see you know if you can replicate that. i mean. i think he'll do well. I mean i think he you know working with george kill and training with him. I think that definitely really helped him. So i think he could definitely repeat what he did last year. And then i put noah fancier noah fan definitely a guy that i think a lot of people are hoping he can you know. Take a jump in be that tight end that a lot of people are expecting him to be hopefully But hasn't really shown that You know is okay But we'll see. I mean the way. The broncos offense looked you know in that preseason game if that's what's to calm i mean broncos team is going to be dangerous and i was saying how the giants are definitely gonna win week one after that. I know it's preseason. But after that i mean i was like i. I don't know but we'll see again. It's only preseason. You don't wanna overreact to the preseason but you know that's you know that's my opinion on that but Yeah so that's your swimming on a tier three Mike irv smith junior. Johnny smith hunter. Henry tyler higby Rob gronkowski and you know what i'm gonna throw. I'm gonna throw berkshire in there as well and gerald everett. I'll throw them in there You know with these guys. You know the titans from new england. I think would hurt them as obviously they're going to be splitting targets. Kind of i mean jonah. S- is going to be the guy that's going to move the change. I think in hunter henry is going to be a guy that you know will be in the red zone big red zone target but the other thing is both these tight ends are hurt right now. So that really hurts new england because these guys are really going to be the focal point of this offense because you know you look at the wide receivers. The wide receivers are not bad. But i think the tight ends are really knows. What's going to make this offense successful mike. I put it to your three just because inconsistencies you know. I think that you don't like he has a tendency. You'll put twenty three points and then the next week a put up eight. I'm looking at Six statistics from last year week. Five hundred eleven point six okay. That's good right then. The following week he leaves a go sag. I mean that's just so frustrating as fantasy manager. You don't know what to expect from him Obviously i mean you'll get look at week. Thirteen fourteen That was with tour as a quarterback he had nineteen point three points. Twenty one point so i mean maybe two over the course full season. Maybe you know plays better. I don't know we'll see I mean obviously with fitzpatrick you know definitely put up good numbers. But it was inconsistent. I think general he's just an inconsistent titan. Want to see gronk. I put a tier three. I mean you know gronk was okay last year. You know definitely was better. You know as the season progress yet. He did have A three-game stretch between week. Six week eight where he averaged. you know. Twelve over Well he didn't really average. But yet a touchdown in every game. I think that's really what helped him. you know. he had sixteen point three or fourteen point. Seven twelve point one through those three weeks But there are definitely games where he disappeared. And i i again. Gronk is not what he was from four or five years ago. But i do think he's a guy that you can have as a backup tight end On your team so Yeah i put him at tier three earth smith. Juniors a guy that i think will see a massive jump in fantasy value will definitely have a lot more a lot. More people drafting him as opposed to last year. Vikings really don't have a number three tight end right now and i number three options..

"Yeah i mean again. It's one of these scenarios where he's not gonna slip so i don't. I'm not even really factoring a man because he's such a name brand. That people aren't going to you know gonna let him fall so i won't even consider it because where you would have to draft it. Matters just doesn't make sense. I'm much. I would much rather wait till like the six round and get mark andrews like that. That's that's the kind of game plan here. Yeah and i'm not saying even take cow pits over. George kill. I guess i probably would gun to my head but i just wouldn't spend that much capital on the position. Either way i think to me it's either. And maybe it's just because my brain's program for best ball. But i think either go waller kelsey early. I if you're feeling it or if the board kind of comes to you that way or you just punt it and deal with it later. I do think there's like you know you probably have a second tier of go for me. I have a second tier guys. Like andrew andrew hopkinson higby and then maybe like kindle pits and logan thomas and that's like after that no offense starts the no offense and goddard and firkin jonas smith and combat those guys. It's a little bit more question. So i'm with you though i think. If you're gonna wait you wait you wait all the way and then worst case you just pick up another one all right last guy. You thought we were going to skip the cowboys. Wait jar wyn. He's going way off your board. You're probably not draft tight end. Twenty-one going to oh to But if you are in deeper leagues or your your your boehner for the cowboys we'll play charwomen. He's gonna he's gonna be on that offense to there's gotta be value here also coming back from an injury sean. He's not. I think he's struggling to get past the schultz who performed well last year in his absence. So i think you know if they're still blake darwin buzz going on. I think we can squash it. If you're drafting him. You you better be cowboys fan. I just think You know he got injured early. But he's a big guy coming off an acl so again you don't need to be taking these guys coming off the acl. If you're not getting a slight discount again. I would maybe consider barclay if i get a slight discount would consider joe borough if i got a slight discount trust me i saw carson wentz pre and post. Acl when i get it. He doesn't have the alien dna. But let's not act like adrian. Peterson was the average. Nfl player all right so according to this blake jar. One is being drafted around. Let's see austin hooper. This isn't this isn't listed right and again there's two tight ends in that cowboys system that it seems like a split like why would you not iraq iran. What's up you. Take him over eric. Hebron well you know. I'm a fryer mood guy so i don't know that he's going around the same time as i. There's the tight end. Wash hubbard going around gerald everett. Yeah wouldn't you rather take gerald ever in that seattle offense you know. He's the guy he's not coming off major injury. They brought him in liked him.

"Quarterback till the end downstream. That's what i was going to say to What i've done a bunch of mock drafts. What i'm noticing is. I like my teams a lot. More when i wait on quarterback yeah. It's really nice to have a patrick mahomes or josh allen. Kyla murray type quarterback on your team but they're coming at the expense of a really really good running back or wide receiver. So when i've done all these mock drafts my teams significantly better. When i'm stacking the position players and waiting on quarterback in landing someone like a tom brady aaron rodgers jonesboro later in the draft. So just something to call out. Do a bunch of mock drafts play with different strategies. And see what you like overall as a squad depending on kinda what route you go indefinitely what your league does. It's a group of guys that you draft with every single year. And you know they take quarterbacks early take advantage of that but if you know everyone's gonna double up on quarterback you might have to do some a little bit different than what digested so know who you're driving with a final tidbit here. When it comes to this rankings tears nat wraps up. Our a quarterback rankings. Next episode will be tight end rankings. Will we get a tyler. Higby appearance in that episode man.

"I'm gonna start with arguably my most controversial take of the day sam darnold. What's the heartache. And if he is he gonna go sir. Not darnold in slinging. Sam darnold three year career. He's never finished inside of the top. Twenty five at the quarterback position. He's also never thrown for over thirty one hundred yards or twenty touchdowns in a year his career completion percentage sits at fifty nine percent in addition if we look at last year specifically. It's his worst year of his career. Twenty two hundred yards through the air nine touchdowns and eleven interceptions in twelve games. If your take is that sam darnold is bad like you. Just prove that. He's bad like. I don't know where you're going with this but darnold is bad. You're trying to say is gonna finish outside of qb. Thirty two sam darnold careers. Been absolutely terrible. Nobody is going to argue that including myself. It would be pretty easy for somebody to up his career as of bust in move on and in fact. Almost everybody is already done that rightfully so sam. I am one of the few people that still truly believes in you. I'm here to tell you why showtime darnold is going to finish the season as a top twelve quarterback showtime where nicknames coming from you top twelve top twelve quarterback darnold the prospect in darnold product have been polar opposite so far. But let's remember that he was a number three overall pick in the two thousand eighteen draft. He went ahead of josh allen and lamar jackson. The reason he was drafted ahead of them is because scouts were drooling over his size his arm strength and his playmaking ability on the day of the two thousand eighteen draft dane brugge a well-known senior analyst for nfl draft scout listed darnold as the clear number one quarterback in the draft. Obviously that hasn't been the case but the point that i'm trying to make is a talent was there and i know space jam to just came out and unless the monster stolas talents. I'm confident in saying that. Those talents are still in that

"Two running back for mcmahon and douglas. The law firm there in the middle of the draft ryan tannehill who doug or thrum f f today followed by curtis samuel to burger and palmer here at the eight nine Selection fairly your guy rehim. Most he goes off the board here tonight. What the third third last pick of the eighth round. Peter overs that draft him as number two running back to pair with alvin. Cook michael gallup another cowboys receiver off the board at the eight. Eleven and tyler. Higby rounds things out the gym coventry here From rotorua dot com. And it's interesting too. Because tyler higby goes as the tight end ten tonight he normally goes at tight end. Nine normally goes at the seven four. He goes tonight at the as twelve and and ryan pool said look. This is the latest. I've ever seen go in in this format before so coventry gets a big time win there in my opinion to wait and wait and wait and still get a top ten tight him around and a half later almost two full round later than what he normally goes. So congratulations to jim. there What are you thinking about over his that squad from the three hole here tonight feral because he gets cooked and now he gets guy remote start. The question was. Can you hit on enough running backs to make this team Really explosive enough to compete. With ridley lambourn higgins anderson. You've got the receivers and now he's got most this number two running back. How much more do you like this squad. Now that he's got cook and most are not just cook. Everybody knows it over since genius. So you know the that's an into so there's way that if i'm at the four spot i'm saying well. This guy has picked a running back since dalvin cook. I'm not gonna let him have most 'cause You know i i took He takes curtis samuel absolutely nothing over courtesy real but there's receivers that would have come back to him. That could help him. Just as much in the ninth round but most are could be a great fourth running back for him. He'll be a tremendous second running back if he can overcome the an going to speak about injuries to speak about the fact that he's the most ever carried the ball. There's one hundred fifty one times in one year so if most to carry the ball two hundred and twenty five times He'll have production evil to The third running back and and that would be fantastic for over team. You know what's wild to think about too as we look at the niners running backs in how tonight's drafters treated them trae sermon. When is running back. Twenty eight at as running back thirty three and you think well balki. That doesn't sound like that. Big of a difference. Well based on how this it was more than two full rounds. That's separated those players even though they were only five running backs away from each other at the position so it was interesting. There Most are going to full rounds after doug or took trae sermon in the six. Let's get into the ninth round here..

"Okay. You are in the early seventh round of a football guys drafts with nat you. Because you obviously don't play them because you commissioner them from your you made up your mind. You don't have a tight end yet. You're going to grab one here. The two best options for you tyler. Higby on the rams and logan thomas on the wf t. Which one you go with. First of all i think both of them are better than injures How this is kate market. Well you know it's not really a commentary mark andrews. You just don't like the they're correct. And that's not to say that. I think lavar is a great fantasy quarterback i think he's a great quarterback in general egypt's not because the right because of his legs. Yeah but if my choices are andrews logan. Thomas tyler higby. I'm higher on b. And thomas One of them is from past experience because higby is now getting thrown to by stafford. And i think obviously that stafford is the second coming of football. Jesus the first coming envelope. Jesus jesus himself i. I really liked Young when i was little stadium because from california so like watching him. Jesus for bryce. Yeah yeah without really little. He was not ripping on your Higby or logan thomas if you could only choose one you're picking higby overtime. No actually. i'm picking thomas. this is interesting. I want to get into this show not now. I'm going to play devil's advocate here. Not saying i agree with you. Shopping district but logan. Thomas has to deal with a couple of factors number. One you got ryan. Fitzpatrick likes to pump the ball. Down the field. You already have terry maclaurin there. Plus the washington football team went out and got curtis samuel. So my concern is logan. Thomas was such a volume guy. I don't know if that volume is still going to be there this year. And he's still going in the seventh round. Why do you like logan thomas over higby. So Scary terry is going to be is now. Unknown factor that teams have to plan around Curtis samuel is also well known in the in the in the. Nfl people are going to figure out how he works in that offense. I think the safe move for fitzpatrick which i had to look this out historically. He does when he needs to kind of go to a guy. That's a safe pass. Because he has to go through his reads he hits a tight end fairly often. And i think. Logan thomas is the perfect type of target for the wave fitzpatrick places game when he's been magic not when he's being tragic because who knows what he's going to do that versus versus stafford with higby while stafford likes is titans and he obviously trusted hawk when he was in detroit He has a lot more options and good options to throw to in la. I mean robert. Woods is fantastic. So other guys name the other receiver Cooper kupp they go back. Those two are just better options than hippias. Heavy will be there and he'll be probably a goal an end zone threat When they're you know. I didn't seven yards but i think for the most part stafford has better options. He's going to utilize those options and fitzpatrick is going to kind of do what he does. And hittite ends fairly regularly. And i think logan thomas is still going to have that volume. You just mentioned. I'm robert wedge. They're going back to back with mike evans in f. Fcc dress right now If somebody asked you hey brice. You've seen a lot of drafts. Who would you rather have your woods or evans. Which one do you like to have the better season. Twenty point one.

"Talk. I think that'll be the case for them. That has me leaning more towards the under on top of it. I mean, look at Jared Goff and cold temperatures has never been that effective. Five touchdown, seven interceptions. In temperatures 40 degrees or below on. Do you know green babe? You know, after a bye week might be a little bit rusty. After that offenses, you know, been humming along and I just go back to the Rams have been one of the better. Better teams as far as you just wanna blindly bet the under with the Rams. This year. I mean, you're on 11 and three run and I know last week's game went over the toll, but that was kind of a bit misleading if he followed that the game pulling that one. So I'm on under 45, a half Katie and Here's Here's what happens to in games. Like that. Another words when you see a pace like you saw last week with Seattle in the Rams, and it's a dead under and you're in the second quarter at 63, or cruising through the second and all of a sudden you get the pick six. Now it's 13 3. So now all of a sudden, Seattle is no longer content to just, you know, work on getting that one key drive to get in the lead. Now they're down multiple scores, and that's what combined in the But when you have a game on an under, so in other words, if you have the Rams under right, that all looks well and good and he could be You know a 33 game. But if Green Bay strings together two scores in a row, and it's 13 3 or 17 3. All of a sudden, the Rams are no longer just relying on Cam Acres and a couple passes to Higby and Everett. They're tight ends and.
