Okay I don't know about Joe Shirt right now, but he's got a fantasy points hat on right now, and he keeps sipping his coffee every three seconds because it's a fantasy, points dot COM Mug, joke, you right now are reminded me of Wayne and Garth in in Wayne's world where it's like newprint little yellow. Ross. If you're going to put us on video, I have to take advantage and by the way. So, I know you can't see that. It's actually it's really comfortable so at the. Time, to be talking about that, but of it yeah, it's a I'm a. it's going to be half my apparel soon so just just by by nature of of of having the company's just can be half of what I'm doing I'm like a pro wrestler like like like when. Steve Austin would wear the Austin three sixteen shirts all the time. It's like yeah, by the way I am Stone Cold Steve Austin. Yes I do work for. Dude I think it's great. Honestly I should wear tiger podcast stuff more than I do. Why not right I mean? That's your business. It's a it's our small business on the podcast network. It's your small business on fancy points dot com, which is growing because of all of our awesome listeners impart like the last two winners of the June best ball ten draft. It's Eddie Hanson and Levi store, so we now have all ten people better going to get smoked by you and me. Joe Expect an email in the next couple of days to find out when. When the draft will be how to access it at Cetera last week we went over our initial best ball ten draft, so the other people I think all the other folks know who they are. Deborah Kramer Carson Right! Donovan Gymnast Mahindra Dick, Ari Angle norm. Physique, Bend Mullins and Nathan Chewed Yoni, but we got one more next month in July. We'll have another best ball drought in August. We actually give away picks spots in our season long draft, which will be fantastic the to all of us. Fantasy points dot com so I thought it was interesting Joe. Last week we really focused on best ball this week. We're going to dive into dynasty. Fantasy football with my buddy. Dan Lamantia from the dynasty fury podcast. You can follow him on twitter. At F- F coach Dan. Dan Welcome to the show it's Rawson. Joe Thank you for coming on it is an absolute pleasure, and as long as I followed you raw and Joe I know it doesn't matter what time it is. There's so much energy and passion on this show here today and I'm excited that your first episode on Youtube I think your listeners are going to get a tree. So before giving it in the year background Dan because it's really interesting for a fantasy football player. Joey might have touched on this last week. Is it fair to say. That dynasty and baseball are basically the opposite so beach other like best ball is the least involved you do the draft you're done. It's over and you see what happens during the season dynasty is like the exact opposite truly is like a year round endeavor. Is that fair Joe Yeah, and even even if your team stinks right so because if your team stinks dynasty that gives you all the more incentive. To, keep grinding, and you know sometimes it just redraft league. You start to lock out the teams who aren't GonNa make the playoffs from doing transactions, and you know to prevent collusion and all that stuff, and to make sure the teams to have a chance to win. Really are the teams that are pursuing. The players, the right players on the waiver wire and stuff like that in dynasty. If you're sitting there at and eight, and you know you're not going anywhere, will now it's time to unload you're you're better? Players? Go get more draft picks. Go get younger players to trade them to the wind now team, so it is the opposite in that man. If your team stinks, you might even be more active in the dynasty league than you would be. If you you're team was six. Or seven Brie and look into win a championship. Is that kind of how look at it and is that why you're such a dynasty? Love her. Do you feel like it's more? Similar to like real football in the sense that. Every years not a new year like you gotTa have some carryover from the year before with your roster and you really building something. I love building whether it was when I was a football coach, or you know owning a semi pro football team. I love that roster management building a roster. Only one think about being to eight Joe, so you know hopefully I never have to grind like that, but it is a grinded as a management You have to be organized. You gotta stay on top. Top of things and it's year round, and that's why I enjoy about it, too. You know here. We are during a pandemic, I still have football. You know yes, the Best Balls Fund I do my share best balls, but I love mansion that dynasty team in the offseason keep a knowledgeable keep ahead of the game and I think it gives me an advantage. So you should by the way if you like dynasty football, I know a lot of you. Do you absolutely need to follow them on twitter at dynasty, theory, F F and listen to or watch? Dan Show. It's on Monday nights right then. Monday nights nine o'clock were live on Youtube, and then we're on every online platform regular podcast. We released it the next day on Tuesday. Yeah, so you're absolutely should check that out. He also is a gigantic cowboys fan. I'm loving the dichotomy right now because we have on the one hand. Joe Dolan really is affiliate Guy Likes Phillies sports loves Roy Halladay and the flyers and the eagles. Hand. You Got Dan. Who's got this Dak Prescott fat had behind him. He's in his suite cowboys chair. He's got a cowboy shirt on they you have me who actually played for the cowboys, but grew up eagles fan, and is the Eagles TV analyst, so we've got like a straight battle here going right now. Yeah I mean NFC east across the board I just know giants representation here I don't think that Ross where you ever with the giants I know you've played for thirty eight teams, but worry ever with the giants now the giants of the NFC East Team I have no, no connection to. Not to. Or whatever it's interesting though Joe, I met Dan. This is important. For some. I met Dan. Was One of my other businesses. Go big recruiting for high school athletes because they couldn't me if I'm wrong. You were the recruiting coordinator I. Know You still work at Lackawanna? College, but you're the recruiting coordinator. Right? Yeah, as part of recruiting and coaching the running backs at the time I, think it was two, thousand, six, two, thousand, seven, Ross, and You know I think for your listeners that just shows a pays to be good people and follow your passion. 'cause it connected me what you and here we are many years later. Yeah now dynasty theory is part of the Ross Tucker podcast network, but so Dan has a background in recruiting as a coach as a player and Lackawanna I duNno, Joe. How familiar you are jost from up in the eastern area. Right Joe Yeah I'm from the Valley and. Just a just to throw out there. My brother-in-law is a coach. The offensive coordinator at Moravian College in Bethlehem so he my brother-in-law coach the tight ends for a year or two at Villanova, He was then the he was then the quarterbacks coach up at up at. Mercy, Hurston Eerie and now he's He's coaching. He's the offense coordinator. Moravian College so a lot of Pennsylvania connect. He was actually Ross. a quarterback at Lasalle College, high school and in the Philadelphia area, so he so we. We have Pennsylvania. Football got on lockdown here and then Lackawanna Joe I. Don't know how familiar you are the listeners, but they have like twenty guys. Go D one every year. Not White played there the former number seven overall pick in the draft for the bears. I don't who else went there Dan that people might know. Brother Xeres a linebacker for the chargers right now. He's competing for a starting job with them. Mark Lewinsky's the right guard for the colts. He just signed a new contract. He's doing excellent there in Indianapolis. We got prospects all over the place. Right now we got Dijon Warren. WHO's got scholarship offers from about twenty five different institutions probably selling them short. They are Alabama Georgia. Penn state we have a bunch of kids at Penn state right now and we been high, and it's a great experience. When I started there, Ross. I really learned what work ethic in film study is I. Can't tell you how much film I did. Get the opportunity to watch. Watch in Kinda like your boy. Greg cosell analytics, guys, fantasy football, and there's film guys I love watching the NFL film and I learned a lot like want college to help me do so well. That was going to be my question right, so you're really a dynasty fantasy football. You've been emailing me last couple of years about how much you love it. You listen to the fantasy fees and everything like that. So most of your decision making is it fair to say comes from Your coaching background, and actually studying in watching the players. So then like how much time do you spend watching the rookies? So you know who to draft? Yeah it rookies has been like the next evolution for me. You know it starts on football Sunday I've got three TV's on I got the ipad on a separate screen. I picked the players I wanNA watch each week during the week I'll watch the subscription to the NFL access I'm watching you know things. I might have missed. There are certain players I wanna see, and then it's trying to keep up with college football, and then when the season's over you know absorbent, as much college football as I, can't it to catch up with the rookie class, and it's you know, believe believing in my eyes and a combination out of much knowledge. Knowledge as I could soak in listening into the analytics, guys follow in your show Ross with an incredible amount of great guests. You have you've always had your thumb on. I think a lot of the best talent in the industry The word Joe's doing over there at fantasy points with the Dream Team of staff. He's put together there and I'm not blowing smoke with that, but that's part of my strategy. I have no shame in my game. When we're on the dynasty theory podcast we, we give credit where it's due. You know because we see how hard people in the industry grinding so I. Try to combine my film study with. A select group analysts that I follow religiously and just Kinda Combine Nuno, the analytics with the film study, and you learn the market value and apply at the dynasty football all right so I think most listeners know what dynasty football is you know I think. I mean guessing it's fair to say Jomon. Ask You about this is fair to say. Everybody knows redraft is. What percentage of people jody you think know what best ball is. What percentage you think, know what dynasty if Well if you were to say to the typical fantasy football player, are you in a redraft league? I think the average fantasy player would say I'm Min of Fantasy League? I don't know if they'd know that term specifically. I would say. Oh, God. Twenty percent of people who play fantasy football. What best ball is an I'd probably put the same percentage of people to at least know what it is on on a dynasty link, which is different of course than a redraft keeper, League which which a Lotta people are familiar with where you can keep two or three players or one player, or whatever in that a dynasty league is like the. NFL you carry most of your roster over to the next to the next year. So Dan. Let's dive into it then with some of your. Roster Strategies for people that are in a dynasty or want to learn more about it. What is your sort of? Do you have like a core philosophy when it comes to your team? Yeah most. Certainly you know and I'm a little bit newer to the podcast circuit in the industry, but I'm far from new from fantasy. Football had been playing since I. was you know in the ninety s? Back when they didn't. Have you know the fancy software that does the stats Fria Joe Ross getting that USA Today or whatever that newspaper publications I think you know. Greg Embryos had back in the day and I would do the stats by hand for my league, and people would win wonder why I always would finish first or second I had such an edge doing adding up the stats and. I started doing keepers and redrafts, and then dynasties like potato chips. You know you can't just have one. And I take that coaching mentality and build a great team around me. I'm lucky to have you know John Bauer Mitchell source and over there at dynasty theory they got about no word of lie, one hundred plus dynasty teams between the two of them, their wives have got to be saints all right, and it started with me getting in one dynasty league, and I became friends with Mitch and he's GonNa. Get you up to five or six and then five or six now. I'm about twenty dynasty teams and. It starts with all that knowledge I talk to you guys about in our listeners. Sometimes they get intimidated by dynasties God's a lot of work. It's a lot of time, but utilize my time wisely I got about two acres of land, so I'm on the line more taken in about three or four Ross Tucker shows a couple Dole. Fantasy points shows. Absorbent all in I'm listening when I'm in the car. I'm in the shower. Driving at the gym. The podcasts are always on I think our listeners have got to be on twitter. If you're not on twitter, you're missing out because it's like a cult, their fantasy football knowledge, and then he should be subscribing to some lists I've got less than you could subscribe to mind. That are for just some of the best in the Biz when I want to just you know, eliminate the clutter and just get certain analytical takes, and I've got some larger groups. And then I'm doing my film study like I said in the I've got a good gauge for market value from there I love tears. I think organization is very big piece of this I. Love Joe Pippi in the black book. He does a good job of this of rank and tears by value. So when I'm drafting I'm looking to hey, you know if I have a mid late first. First Round Pick and do I take Travis Kelsey your George Biddle, that's GonNa. Give me a big advantage over fade and tight end, versus maybe taken a hopkins or a Julio and I could fade wide receiver a little more than still be pretty strong at the position, so I love draft in tears and trying to create an advantage throughout the draft by grabbing guys higher in the tears. Now, there's not one-size-fits-all biasi format. There's GonNa. Be Some people that listened that lake trading their first and second round picks. Adding draft capital and loading up in the fourth fifth sixth seventh rounds. That's not my style. I like to win now and still build a young roster. I like the train. My draft capital because a lot of those rookies don't always pan out and I have very confident. Might trading ability where fighting get a guy? I'm going to trade from somewhere along the line. There's going to be an impatient owner. That's going to give up on somebody and I'M GONNA. Get Him. So I try to get an advantage in year one go to win now. Trade some draft capital. Get a two three hundred point advantage by building my roster early. But then as I build my tears my rankings, I'm targeting. Those guys based on all the information I've taken in young have upside could break out, so maybe you. Don't have it all in year one by an attractive roster and you're too so I felt a little bit short i. still have guys I could trade. I'M GONNA be strong year to and I've done really well. I think I dynasties. Kind of supported Christmas, the dynasty winnings. You know last year. I was cruising. You know I think up till about week. fifteen was a little bad to me, so I had a lot of second and third place finishes, but profited, and it paid for Christmas and then. Then I do some DFS that pays the bills, but I try to draft young. I tried to anchor my team a running back. Ross I, think especially now this Belco. Running backs are very rare. WanNa. Make sure I got at least one. I like to have two good running backs, if I can to get an advantage at that position, and then in Dynasty I. Try to make sure I also like Super Flex format, so I like to have two quarterbacks anchored by at least one study very often this. This guy I do some shares of Mahomes Russell Wilson Deshaun Watson Young Superstar quarterbacks, and then my roster always has at least one superstar, so this off-season evaluated my twenty rosters. There were one or two that I wasn't really happy. The direction they were going in, so I had a super superstar that I could trade get a lot of draft capital still find another good player to replace him, and I kept those rosters strong, so that's a little bit of what I'm doing Ross. Just keeping on top of. Of the knowledge I think the last thing I'd say. Is You I? Stay really organized with my charts. I try to get one mentor even each year last year I spent the year working with Nelson Soza is like a redraft shark. You need some other business and he. He had a little service. They are and I just sponged knowledge from a year and plied something to my game of do the same thing this off season. Learn from someone else and apply it to what I'm doing enough fantasy football. Dan I love it. That was a very thorough and perfect explanation of kind of how you go about it. I want to get your thoughts on some specific players for this year, because that really transcends any of the different fantasy formats, but i. I hope you already have the draft.

Over thousand bucks I mean just because of some of the offers that draft Kansas presented. This is not this is not part of the read by the way like draftkings had a great couple of offers, so if you combine the fact that I made the bet with the fact that I got three dollars for every stroke that Webb Simpson was under par, which was twenty, two under par, and then also that I got an odds boost on an American to win the tournament yet. I clear cleared a four figures for like for like twenty five dollars worth of actual, so that is amazing because I'm moving.

Dan, let's get into a couple of specific players, so whether it's redrafts or I just I'm in a fantasy football league Joe said or dynasty or best ball. GimMe Gimme. One Guy, give me one or two guys that you are really high on and you're. You're looking at a lot in your different leagues. A good point here for dynasty. Strategy Ross when you get these tips in it, and that's what I do. When I listened to the Ross Tucker show or fancy points, Joe or you guys are collaborating on the fantasy feast soon as I. Get that inside tip, I'm going through my twenty twenty dynasty leagues, and seeing where I could trade or acquire them. You know it's hot. Quick News in your stay aggressive in a couple of guys, I like one. I heard on fantasy points, reichheld Armstead You know when you hear that insight. That team is very high and organizations high on a player, and you know they want to move a guy like Leonard Fournette and I love Leonard, Fournette, because as you know my shameless plug. I got to play basketball with a few months ago, but if I wanna both Gimme. Leny Gimme right cal like lenny ends up going now. I got two good running backs on my team so. So you know at an ADP of to twenty eight late in a draft armstead's a nice guy to get I by the way, and you didn't hear that on fantasy points forget enough fantasy points. Okay. That was last week on the fantasy. Fees podcast as Joe and I, talked about my stellar best ball draft where I got it right Keller Reich well I. don't even know I always call them Reich well they are. Brought the fifteenth round or something deny Joe I got. Gray you did. It was an awesome pick and he's a guy. I've drafted a ton of so yeah I mean it's just it just makes sense. You know that the Jaguars tried to trade muntarbhorn and you know he's been suspended by the team for conduct detrimental to the team. At at a point, you know each sat injuries. What am I missing here? Why is Leonard Fournette a third round pick? And why is Reichel Armstead? A fifteen sixteen, th round pick I? Mean that just. Drafting him. Just make sense. Maybe he's not there back in the future. You know maybe you have to keep in mind. The colts tried to colts. Not Try to they did. They traded in front of them to draft Jonathan Taylor, so we know that the colts were at least scared that the Jaguars draft on at the Taylor but they did it. The Jaguars didn't get him. Reichel armstead could have an opportunity. I mean he is like. I'm not even sure it's fair to call them handcuffs because I. Think he could have legitimate opportunity this year. The there's just so much upside for that level of pick I I. Don't know if hype is getting out of Control in dynasty, but it's still really hasn't gotten there redraft so. He's going like seven eight rounds after Alexander Madison which no Madison showed more last year. delvin cookies holding out I. Understand all that, but I wonder if there's a similar level of upside there. You have another Guy Dan. You guys were locked and loaded for your show pal. Another guy like his drew lock. You know a little bit more of a popular name, but still being going a little late one fifty ADP. They're We had woody page on dynasty theory. If there's an episode you WanNa Watch is the one with woody he's. Drinking. Tequila and going off the camera and tell us some great stories about Michael Jordan. We talked about drew lock with them, and he's been covering Denver for thirty years and just being around the team. He's like he's got it factor. And I believe what he there you know. He eats his off. The Judy GonNa Denver before. The draft even happened in Denver. You know they're telling you what they're doing. They are invested in drew lock. They establish so many offensive weapons around him. You Know Sutton's back. They bring in Melvin Gordon. Jerry Judy gets drafted. Hamblur, it's a very talented offense, so I have high hopes about a young quarterback drew lock this year for Dynasty. When it comes to drew lock. You know it's a different. It's a different thing that John always doing like he is tried ever since losing peyton manning to retirement he's tried to. band-aid the quarterback position bringing in case keenum a bringing Joe Flacco to be fair. He did rap Paxton Lynch. It was a horrific bus, but he did try to get that quarterback of the future but this year we did the right thing. Do I know the drew lock is good. No, he was the second round. Pick for a reason and I mean that both on the positive and the negative. There's a reason drew lock wasn't a first round pick in the NFL draft, but there's also a reason. He wasn't a fifth round pick in the NFL draft and I think he showed more of those positive traits, but we got this five. Five Games it was a small sample. He didn't drop back to throw all that many times, but we saw a lot of positives and I. Think John Elway made the right call surrounding with talent. Bring in Judy, bringing Ham or bringing Gordon they drought drafted Ochoa Bonham the tight end to go with no fan. They have a lot of tight end. They have a lot of weapons. They're Andrew Oxen Athlete. He's Got Kinda Cutler. Ish Quality to yeah I would buy right now. He's getting a little bit a hype because of the weapons around him, but I'd I'd invest in a young quarterback like that G and Dan I'm looking at your. Notes you sent me about guys that you like? Irv Smith Ian Thomas Tyler higby Gerald Everett you get a lot of tight ends. Bro, you're a lot younger ends that you like, and you know in a season. Where if you're not getting to me the big three there of Kelsey kittle I'm very high Mark Andrews number three, but if I'm not getting them depending on how those first couple rounds were Faden. Faden and everyone who has one or two strategy getting the big guns, or you're fading and they're the guys I'm targeting a very high and tight ends this year. I think Herb Smith. Super, young talent I think he's going to be us like a receiver from what I'm listening to. You may be the number two option in Minnesota Ian Thomas. He flashed on. On film for me last year he definitely pass the eye test and you know he's replacing alleged in Greg Olson where things are going to do well in Seattle or talking dynasty here I, really like the and Thomas and then higby Gerald. Everett. They both look good on film to me. You know I mean. Hagi was awesome last year and it kind of. Of goes with Jacksonville strategy where you know Joe was talking about for net and Armstead. You know that he likes. There's two running backs. They're so. I'M GONNA. Draft them. Both Everett's a free agent after the season. Then hopefully, my dynasty roster has to starting tight ends next year, so I'm playing for this year, but also help myself a year from now. Joe Does, it. Make you like I'm curious when Dan called it the big three. And it's Kelsey kittle, and Andrews and he's other than those three. Do you think he's correct. That hurts. If you don't get one of the top three, you fade everybody else or is this. His Eagles hate as a cowboys fan who saw his completely healthy more talented team choke last year against the Eagle. This is his cowboys hate spewing from Dan Lamantia. I don't I. Don't know about that. because. There is some rationale to I mean Erz is getting older, so there's there's two sides of the same coin with Earth's. He was never a guy who kind of one with explosive athleticism. The way that the way that Kelsey kiddle Andrews can do. So the question is. Does somebody like Zakar fade away earlier because he didn't have the next level, athleticism or To bring up a Dallas Cowboy. Does he hang around and produce deep into his career like Jason witten because of the ways he wins as a route, runner and move in the chain, so I agree with Andrews's number three for for dynasty, and by the way it's, it's not just speculating Oh Zach ertz getting older because Travis Kelsey as well. It's the fact that the eagles have a really good number. Two tight end in Dallas. So there's both of those things if I can get it. For cheaper I have seen him falling downdraft, or it's not just in dynasty, but in redraft that I'm going to buy in, but I've typically employed the same strategy more so in best ball than dynasty this year. If I didn't get kindle, kittle, Kelsey or Andrews on kind of waiting, and I'm going to get two or three of those later around tight ends. I'm really on Herb Smith I'm in on Ej. Hopkinson this year Hayden hearst. Guys I'm, GonNa I'M GONNA build with those guys as opposed to drafting Hunter Henry Oren, Evan Ingram or a higby in the middle rounds because I really liked the way my teens look if I go early tight end or late tight end I. Don't love how they look. If I go in the middle, Ross, you and I talked about that on our best ball podcasts where I took evidence Ingram I. believe in the seventh round and I thought it was an stake. If I could do it again, I drafted a wide. Wide Receiver there. Joe As as the official here I'm using my challenge flag on Ross here all right that that dig of the you know the eagles cowboys game last late last year.

Tucker former longtime nfl offensive linemen close to a decade which is an awesome way to make it sound better than seven years when you say close to upwards of a decade.

Ross tucker. nfl the expert advice though doesn't really come from me. I mean a little bit but primarily it comes from joe dolan who is one of the owners and masters of all he oversees at fantasy points dot com where you should use the code feast by the way he's also according to fantasy pros dot com the number one ranked fantasy football analyst on planet earth. Over the last five years. You can go check it google. It use your googly machine and you'll see that at f. g underscore donating is number one. He's the best we liked the best. That's why we have the best at f g underscore dolan joe. What's up man. Hey rosco too good to be with you here. I need you know we started doing this last year and we weren't on video on video now. I just realized well. I've realized this before but i really need to stop taking hot showers. Before i come on here i look i look like i just went for like an eight mile. Run without read my vases so Did stop doing that right before the bod gas. I just realized that. I was gonna ask you. Look a little flush your your cheeks and face you look a little flush and once and i have a hot cup of coffee over here which isn't helping things either. Know it's funny because i am a. I am a king of the thermostat. That is my possession and i. my body. Temperature is a lot higher than my wife's. So i have to keep the thermostat at a temperature where i feel cool however i take showers. That are close to boiling. I don't understand why it's just. It's just the weird quirks that i am That i have. But but yeah. I looked like i just ran a marathon which i can utterly guarantee you is not the case right so i've got questions now number one. What do you normally keep the thermostat in the winter during the day. It's at sixty eight. Usually sixty seven to go to bed In the summer. I'll let the wife turn it up to seventy because she really hates air conditioning. Now you know people are like apparently. I'm actually relatively moderate when it comes to the thermostat or like I'm a big proponent of air conditioning. I love it. It's a great invention. I think it could have saved. James garfield life back in eighteen. Eighty one if it existed. So i mean air. Conditioning is a wonderful thing But i keep it at seventy the summer. Sixty seven to sleep during the summer. I don't know what your thermostat situation is. Ross but i get the feeling you're like me. You prefer the core thermostat. We keep it at seventy pretty much year round. That's not too bad. that's i have to turn it down to go to bed that it has to be turned down and go to bed. I sleep very hot. And i'd be lying if i said i'm in control of the thermostat We also have two kids. So i too little girl so i'm not totally in charge of that. I am intrigued though. Because we now record this show wednesdays at one thirty pm eastern time the mid day shower. Tell me shower. did you work out. I actually. I want to get a haircut so after the haircut. You gotta get a you gotta get the all the The the deep doo dads out out of your hair. So that's why that's why right now. God okay very interesting all right. This is why joe's the man this is why we love this show And by the way we are year round. And what's really cool in the off season. Is we get into every different fantasy football genre like we talk dynasty. We talked best ball into a lot of best ball. Stuff this offseason. that's my preferred format. It's interesting joe. I feel like the more. I talked to people. They're they're like leaning to either basketball or dynasty dynasties like that is like i want to be involved year round best balls like let me just draft and then be done. Yeah and i love both of them. So i'm joining a new dynasty league. This offseason and best ball season is right around the corner. Ross as a matter of fact at fantasy points dot com. We just did kind of staff. Best ball rankings. That are going to be up soon. And i gotta be honest with you and i think that's what we're going to get into today. I mean talk about speculation station. You know i it you you saw a tweet from adam schefter a little bit earlier this week and he said it was a. It was on monday night. And he said hero was a graphic and said here all quarterbacks whose futures are up in the air and He essentially set the over under. We've over under his on this podcast. He set the over under of eighteen quarterback changes in the nfl. Basically eighteen teams are going to have a new main starting quarterback in the twenty twenty one season. And adam schefter said he will take the over now. Adam schefter isn't just pulling that willing nilly out of his butt cheeks adam. Schefter is going to be informed when he's thinking of something like that. So i went through personally and i said how many quarterback situations do i feel confident. Our i set. I set it at a ninety percent confidence interval. And i said to myself argue ninety percent or more confident that the main starting quarterback from this particular team from the twenty twenty season is going to be the starting quarterback for a team the same team in twenty twenty one and frankly ross. I came up with only eleven teams. Where i'm ninety percent or more confident that the quarterback who either was projected to be their main starter and got hurt like in like in the situation of dak prescott. Joe burrow guys like that or the guys who started the majority of their games in the twenty twenty season. Or you're going to be their quarterback in the twenty twenty one season and i came up with only eleven teams and i feel like that is a staggering number. Yeah i mean just you saying that is surprising to me. I need to go through it. A little plug here by the way. Adam schefter will be on fridays. Ross tucker football podcast. And i am going to ask him about that. And i'm gonna ask about because i'm taking the under. He says over eighteen changes. I'm taking the under. Because of the caps situation in this app. People being less. I think that's interesting. I always think it's interesting. I guess i look at cretin. When i'm wrong here joe because i'm obviously wrong. I feel like january february march and to some extent april our big dynasty months very much. You're saying it's best ballroom. Wait until after the draft for people people are getting into best ball there. There's already sites that have best ball drafts up and people are asking for best ball rankings. I will tell you personally. I this is just my personal preference. I don't like to play until after the draft or at least until after free agency but there are very many people who are out there. Who are saying dude. Like i i can predict. I can get values on guys like kenny. Golladay going into free agency. I can get values on guys like alan robinson who were going into free agency. How many times have we seen a screenshot up on twitter. This week of people who bet the tampa bay buccaneers to win the nfc or win the super bowl. Before tom brady signed their people who saw the writing on the wall and said if tom brady leaves new england this tampa situation is great. So there's there's gambling to be done there. There's there's rolls of the dice. There's informed speculation that you can be doing there in best ball. It's essentially like betting futures. In a way i personally i like to focus my time right now on preparing for free agency and all that stuff preparing for the draft. I'll get into a best ball every now and again. But the vast majority the vast majority of most people's best ball drafts are after the draft may is when that sees a really starts up and then june july you start to see the fish come into the waters a bit but may is really when that starts up but there are absolutely going to be best ball drafts going off from now until after the super bowl starting right after super bowl. Okay man. I got a million questions to ask you now This is awesome by the way absolutely awesome. I should mention by the way speaking of awesome. While we're on the topic of things that are awesome.

While we're on that joe. I do want to talk about the conference championship game and the first question i have for you is how did you do on. Dfs on the sunday slate at draftkings. How how did you. How did your fantasy sunday go. Well i think. I built everything kind of around a really cheap tight. End cameron bright and that ended up working out pretty well. 'cause he scored a touchdown. I would have liked to see him. Catch a passer two more but it but it it worked out well because i thought the match up was good for cameron break and then it was kind of a load up on the expensive receivers stefan digs tyreek hill. So it ended up going pretty well. But the problem is so many duped lineup on those two on those two game slates. That are just really really difficult to That are really difficult to separate yourself from the pack. So i focused much more on making prop bets and i gotta be honest. Ross a my biggest pro- better the entire week which we've talked about it. Last week. i apologize. We'll talk about process with a super bowl next week by My biggest bet for the championship brown was marquez. Valdes scantling longest reception over seventeen and a half. Yeah about four of them so unfortunately you don't get you. Don't get a tiered payouts. Based on how many receptions he has over that that benchmark But that was an easy win for me. And i had cameron bray over to an app. Perceptions was all which also worked out pretty well but other than that i hit the The buccaneers plus the three did not hit the bills. Plus the three and a half did not get that one of the bills were just out from the mo from from basically the opening snap and you know they got the the fumble with nicole hardman and outside of that it was. It was kind of kansas city. Showing its metal Showing that still the team to beat quite obviously as they advance their second consecutive super bowl. Yet there's a lot. I want to get to with you there. That is interesting though. I if people listen to podcast no i had the bucks getting three and a half at dr king's i you know usually do the money podcast on tuesday. I wish i would've laid the two and a half with the chiefs. I was leaning towards it. But i wasn't one hundred and ten percent sherm home's gonna play. Obviously he played. He played well and joe's right because joe's the number one ranked fancy analyst out there. We'll go through all the prop bets next week. What what What takeaways did you have from the conference championship games. I would say from a fantasy standpoint for next year job. I i'm wondering ross. And maybe we. All those of us are sitting here scratching our growing areas watching these games. It's easy for us to say. But i'm wondering if next year we might finally see some coaches realize you gotta score touchdowns to beat good teams and you know i. I wish i wish that was controversial. I wish that that which that. I didn't have to say that. It's obvious it self evident but i have say it but like you saw green bay. As a matter of fact the funny part was the analytics. The like the win probability. A models didn't see much of a problem with matt floors decision to kick it of course A lot of the might not take into account. The fact that tom brady is on the other side of the football You know but i would have gone for it for matt lahore. But the sean sean mcdermott situation. Where all those field goals he kicked out. Were just mind numbing to me. Especially since they have been an aggressive team is year and he comes from the andy reid school. You saw andy. Reid go for on fourth down with a league with his backup quarterback two weeks ago. So you saw that. And sean mcvay sean. mcdermott coming. From the andy reid the fact that they went for it on fourth and one near midfield on the opening drive of the game which was absolutely correct. Call the back that he didn't do it later in the games and they settle for short field goals. It's just not getting done so i have. I have to make this plead other coaches. You saw two teams lose in the conference championship games. Maybe not because of decisions to kick field goals but those decisions didn't help. They certainly didn't help. Like i think buffalo was going to run out of the building anyway. I didn't think buffalo was gonna win even if they had gone for the touchdowns but it would've been nice to see them. Tried but green bay. You rogers you have aaron rodgers. Let them try to make a play. So i was disappointed by that. You just saw somebody in la anthony. Lynn who i mean you look at the resume. You look at the fact that justin herber had arguably the greatest rookie season any quarterback has ever had and he just got fired. And you would have to say ross in large part because some of his in game decision making that bordered on the baffling so what. I don't understand like coaches make. These plays well safe. Plays just lost green bay. The conference championship game or at least contributed to it. Safe plays just lost buffalo. The conference championship game or at least contributed to it safe. Plays got anthony lynn fired. I mean i don't think. The chargers wanted to move on from the coaching staff. That helped develop justin herbert. I don't think they wanted to do that. But they saw no other choice because of games they got thrown away so these safe choices are costing teams wins the costing teams jobs from a fantasy perspective. They're costing us points. So that's way down on the totem pole. Team should be making these decisions. But i'm just wondering at this point or these coaches going to realize that being aggressive is the right call. It's not. I like i understand. You want to change the mathematics of the game. I'm i'm a big proponent of don't kick them field goal unless it changes the numbers of possessions that the game that that that it would take to tie the game or win the game. I'm a big proponent of that sometimes you do have to use your gut but being aggressive more often than not is going to be the right call and especially in that big stage. And i'm just hoping that on that big stage. Those teams kind of turtles leads to more of a sea. Change in the nfl. Something that we've already seen happen in years past teams being more aggressive. I know doug. Peterson just got fired. Eagles but the the phillies special super bowl. Teams like frank. Reich comes from peterson trade super aggressive this year. Andy reid being super aggressive this year. It it's the right call to be aggressive. And i believe me i don't think about bills fans are sitting at home today. Like a man. I'm glad we only lost by fourteen man. If we miss those field goals we didn't get those downs. It doesn't matter all right so then we get to all good points. Joe i guess my takeaway is like i'm not going to be huge on clyde edwards air next year. I mean it seemed like they can plug in any guy named e williams and that guy is effective and that was one thing that jumped out to me. I think devin singletary stinks now. I mean what. I wanna hear you read on that. Ross i mean i look. They can't run. The football got hit the whole very hard and then he had that drop. I think that they will draft another running back. Zack moss. But i was disappointed in single terry for sure that that's one that jumped out to me and then That's from the afc game bit mainly running back thoughts and then the nfc. I think brady be back. I i you know tough. The whole four net ronald jones thing will be tough year. You know what you do there. The receiver positional be tough there but anyway that was. My thought is mainly involving the running backs in the afc championship game. Yeah and like i. Here's the thing it's going to take a whole off season to parse what's going on with edwards helaire because obviously he was a first second round. Pick which you know. Look good for a few games. He wasn't a total bust but then he got hurt. And then now the ride in the hawkeye and daryl williams and i don't blame them for that it's the time to develop clyde edwards layer and built his confidence. You're trying to win a super bowl. So i i don't disagree with that at all I think the running back position across the board from this round is interesting because aaron jones is a free agent. Are they going to resign him. I would have said absolutely a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure now. Jamaal williams is a free agent. I think jamal williams is a guy who in the right situation can be a pretty productive player and aj dylan started to come on at the end of the year. And i mean guys built like a truck. So i mean he may obviously drafted them in the second round so they love him so he's going to be somebody who is on the rise ronald jones i think is super confusing to me when it comes to What what what he's going to do. He's got a year left on his rookie contract. Wonderful night obviously was signed for the vet minimum this year for nets been illegitimate ross. Impact player for them in the playoffs. Like like not even just a guy who kind keeps things on schedule as they say. The run game does that. He's been an impact player. I mean i've seen him make that touchdown. Run might have been the best. Ron leonard for abby nfl. Like i mean like that where he the spin move. He fights through contact to get to the goal line. It was an impressive. Run and leonard fournette. You've now leaning into this playoff lenny. Thing he's got an ad that says it on it and what eat maybe understood. His earning potential now is significant. If he puts up big numbers in the playoffs but ronald jones. I know he's a guy who's been who's driven nuts in the fantasy community when you're out on 'em he breaks off one of those seventy five yard runs when you're in on him. He had ten carries for sixteen yards the tampa bay buccaneers to me. I don't know keyshawn. Bonds going to factor in. I don't know what they're going to bring back for net. We'll see what happens in the super bowl. But they're a team that i i still think is going to be searching at the running back position. This offseason art. So let's get to and we'll have a lot of offseason to discuss this but we do know some people playing dynasty or looking at their dynasty lineups and trades. We know we're playing best ball. We'll have time for quarterback movement stuff because that's a little bit up in the air my question joe as how closely do you follow the head coach and assistant coach movement. And how significant is that even like. Shane waldron offensive coordinator in seattle. Wanna make this our draftkings segment because people can play best ball at draftkings by the way and they're going to start to look at these. I think this is where you can get edge on people a fantasy perspective. You really understand these head coaches these assistant coaches that are now calling plays their backgrounds and what their stock went up the andre swift o in campbell anthony lynn and duce. Staley run the crap out of the ball. Joe andre swift doctors went up. Well what's funny about the swift. And yes ross. I do pay attention to coaches as a matter of fact. I'm doing a series of articles at fantasy points dot com breaking these down now. A lot of them are going to be speculation. You know how you know. Even when the rams higher sean mcvay a couple years ago like a. I think there is people who are like. Oh this pretty promising higher. I don't think people thought he was going to be the next hot thing. I mean i which turned out to be and now everybody wants to poach on mcveigh's coaching tree. Obviously matt or got a job and now waldron gets a job and stanley gets a job so now. Everybody's poaching his coaching tree and frank. Right was the second choice in indianapolis and then and then nick serianni gets the job and was was interviewed. So now people wanna poach is tree so you. You can't know right away. I have albion's i have no app. Inclu what arben myers offense is going to look like in jacksonville. Guys never coached a down the nfl. So i'm fascinated. I'm going to be morning myself. When i read and watch the press conferences here but i do pay attention to them but in the case of the andre swift. That one is pretty fascinating. Ross because look at that. Detroit lion offense. Matthew stafford is gone ninety nine percent. I mean they've agreed that they're going to separate them. I want to their official website. Just look look up information about all the new coaches and they have like a they have like a thank you. Matthew stafford thing on there and like the fans are donating to a charity in the end his name and so obviously. The official website seems to be leaning into matthew stafford on the top. Three wide receivers. Kenny golladay marvin jones. And danny. I'm at door all free agents. So you have dan campbell former tight end tight ends coach. The number one receiver on that team right now is probably dj hopkinson. Who's already on the roster. So that's good news for him and then you have. This running back focused coaching staff. I mean anthony. Lynn induce daily combine for like eighteen years of playing in the. Nfl have been coaching in the league for about a combined years. So that's good news for the andre swift so when i see obvious things like that i also lean into thinking man you wanna make sure you don't overrate. What happened in a previous spot because of the talent that was there so i look at the fact that in anthony lynn tenure with the chargers he was there for four years as the head coach. He had a running back finish in the top ten in targets at the position. Three out of the four years and the year in which one didn't that was twenty eighteen. Both austin ekeler end. Melvin gordon finished in the top. Twenty now question then becomes. Is that because you had good receiving backs and philip rivers. Who likes to check it down or is that part of what anthony. Lynn system is going to look like and that's a question that goes that can go on answered right now because we don't even know who's going to be throwing the ball in detroit help ross. I assume anthony. Lynn is gonna call the plays. But i don't know i look at that that lyon coaching staff and i don't see any playcalling experience and i tend think that's overrated on much more into play design than i am in playcalling. I'm of the mind that if the plays are good you can call good place. I think the design is most important. But i can't find any discernible. Playcalling experience for dan. Campbell anthony lynn. Duce staley so. I'm fascinated to see what's going to happen there but i agree like you. Look at the coaches you look at the roster and you try to match the strength to see what's going to happen but you also do have to wait to see how teams are built this offseason and with the quarterback position up in the air. It creates a lot of uncertainty and perhaps for sharper players some buying opportunities for dynasty. Yeah i think you're i think it's a good point whether it's dynasty or best ball if you can sort of play this right with what's gonna end up happening with the quarterbacks you're going to be in a good position i mean what we know. Now is some of the assistant coach. Stop some of the head coach stuff. The quarterback stuff's going to be bananas and we really won't know i mean. None of the trades can even be official until march joe yet. They can't and i remember. Alex smith when he was traded to washington when kansas city made the decision to go with mahomes a couple years ago. I think that broke before the super bowl and they could announce it for like two months so like you to sit here and say all right. I'm ninety five percent. Sure this is going to happen. But what if one of the sides pull out the deals not official. So we'll see what's going on there. You're going to have quarterback battles. I think i just saw some cowboys beat writer speckling dallas white let dak prescott agency like that's why that's why of the teams that i broke down. And saying i feel confident that these teams are gonna have the same starting quarterback in twenty twenty one thousand not one of them dak prescott free agent. And he's coming off a series entry so they're not on their Philadelphia's not on there. I know the speculation was nick serianni. Ani's coming in and he's gonna fix some answer that's their plan. I'm not hundred percent. Sure that i'm not what like the eagles are. Apparently hiring florida offensive coordinator. Brian johnson to be their quarterbacks coach. Brian johnston apparently has known jalen hurts. Jail hurts with a toddler. So i mean there's there's there's situations up in the air there. You look at aaron rodgers and that would be one where you say. Oh for sure he's back. He's going to win the mvp while you see beat. Writers saying aaron rodgers sounded like he was completely uncertain of his future. So even some of these teams rethink. It's obvious that the quarterback is coming back. It's not that situation this year and that's why there was such a a low number of teams were. I'm confident who's going to be the quarterback how the new york jets have the number two pick. We know they're going to have a new quarterback but we don't know who that's going to be is going to be zach wilson from byu. Who's number two daniel jeremiah's board or are they gonna use that as a package for deshaun watson. I would prefer to shawn watson if i were jets fan of the jets. I would prefer you know what. I'm not confident to. Tonga is going to be the quarterback miami. He didn't show anything. Ross that would prevent me. If i were if i were brian floors and his staff there chris greer in miami. He didn't show anything to prevent me from. Trading for deshaun watson if the shawn watson is available so i mean i look at this from from this perspective and it's just a staggering number of genes are unsettled or could make an upgrade at the position that they choose to and that makes this one of the most fascinating off-season from a dynasty standpoint. I i've ever seen in this industry. He is joe dolan at f. g. Underscore i'm at ross tucker. Nfl remember this. Podcast is year round man between the coaching stuff and the quarterback stuff and dynasty and best ball. There's going to be allowed to get into this offseason next week though.

At f- underscored dolan he is the number one ranked fantasy analyst in the world over the last five years and he is rocking the exact right hat on today's show. Joe go sixers. I'm ready ross. You know like it was. I was actually listening drawn back from atlanta this past weekend. Listening to basketball on the radio and mcginnis who is the sixers radio. He's both the play by play guy in the analysts. He does it all himself. Just i don't you know you and i talk for a living. The guys who can call basketball and hockey on the radio and like paint a picture of what's going on in your list. These are chaotic sports on the radio and they can paint a picture of what's going on. I just utmost respect for those guys will actually listen to last sixers game against washington on the radio I'm i'm looking forward to tonight. Just like i just feel something about the team. They just like when when a guy is down. The next guy picks them up. Obviously to buy. Harris was ridiculous in game. One and beads always ridiculous and ben. Simmons is insane defensively and they've got they've got the only curry still alive in the nba. Play-off george hill has been a great addition to the team. I just i love root and form. I can't wait for tonight on raw some gonna be growing out some barbecue chicken with the best barbecue sauce in the world which is mustard based barbecue sauce. Bad as a controversial take. But i live in south carolina. So you have to. I love my carolina. Barbecue sauces could be making barbecue. Chicken going to be growing out can be watching the sixers tonight. It's gonna be fun you know and hopefully if you guys like watching the nba basketball maybe put a couple of wagers on the draftking sportsbook. Of course maybe we can talk some fantasy football. Get you in a best ball draft. Ross in my first draftkings best ball draft right now It's a slow draft. But i opened it interesting and i'm sure as as we go through In the next coming months we're going to be talking about like draftkings. Adp in some of the strategies on on drafting of fantasy football but some of the adp. A really interesting. And i managed to open my team from the ten spot with tyree kill I'm open tyree kill at ten nick. Chubb at fifteen miles sanders. Thirty four. And i think like some of the adp's on draft kings are a little bit different than what you're used to because some of the scoring and we'll talk about all that. But when i finish this team hopefully by week it's slow draft on. We'll be able to talk about it and pick up some of the things i've noticed but i hope everybody you know you're on draftking sportsbook best ball. You're doing all that while you're watching basketball tonight. It's it's a wonderful time of year. I am working by the way on getting that. Set up that you. And i can do. Best ball drafts against our listeners or viewers and absolutely dominate them. I can't wait. yes. I'll be watching the sixers joe and i both grew up different areas outside of philadelphia but still as bands of the philadelphia. Sports teams. I will just say this before we dive into the wide receiver rankings. It's going to be a very valuable episode talking about rookie. Wide receiver rankings. We've already done over the last few weeks. The tight ends the quarterbacks the running back so you can hear where joe has. These guys ranked not only amongst each other but where he hasn't ranked among all the veterans at the position. I'll just say one last thing about the nba and yes. Draftkings has a good promotion. Use the code. Ross but i really dislike the nets like i really first of all joe you grew up in eastern pennsylvania like right on the border right right right literally right across in eastern pennsylvania which is in the lehigh valley which is about an hour outside of philly and the rivalry. I didn't go to eastern high school. I went to catholic school. Boy i went to. I went to notre dame high school in easton pennsylvania but of the the big football rivalry. There is eastern philipsburg philipsburg in new jersey and their name is literally the state liner so like literally i grew up on the state line of pennsylvania jersey. Joe is that noting of green pond. I went to notre dame of green pond. Yes oh that's an eastern. I didn't know yes. Yes that's an eastern. The i am the second most famous. Alum of notre dame green pond after marco andretti. Yeah that's the. I'm also be second most famous person from eastern pennsylvania on sirius. Xm fantasy sports radio because lisa and the lovely lisa. Ann is also from eastern pennsylvania and that is interesting. I didn't know that What was i gonna say. Oh i just. I never met a nets fan. I met one nets fan my entire life. There aren't really nets fans and now they're coming out of the woodwork. When i watch these games anyway people are here here. Kevin durant ross He doesn't do it for me. Let's human noise draft out of me. Which is why. I hope the sixers smash them. I'm nervous about it. But i hope they play him. I hope they smash them. Maybe the bucks can wear them out. I don't know let's get to these rookie wide. Receiver fancy rankings. You know what's interesting. Joe to throw these guys at you i go to. Nfl dot com. And i look at the draft tracker right because it shows you where these guys were drafted. I didn't realize this. They actually gave devante smith a better grade than jomar chase while who has a significantly better grade than than waddell like the seven point one three jomar chase seven point one two very close and a little drop off the wattle. Six point eight six. Then you get a big drop off to allies you're more could area's tony et cetera. So anyway we'll go in order. They were drafted. So let's go jomar chase. Joe they've got to higgins. They've got tyler boyd. Was that mean for where you're stacking up chase to start yet so ross. This is I let let's just put it this way. I obviously respect the work of land in the team. Do an nfl network and i love our nfl dot com. And i love his work. For sure. I would not have given devante smith a better grade than tamar chase and very clearly the cincinnati bengals did not either they took marci fifth overall. And ross. you can make the argument. They took jabbar jas fifth overall at a position. That was not a need for them. I know aj green is gone about is a position that was not a need. You know you can make the prudent. Check your alignment ross. You can make the argument that the prudent pick was sit. Sit there and take penny soul. So they didn't do that. They As an elite player and they took him up a sensibly to replace. Aj green in that offense now. Jamarcus is my highest ranked rookie wide receiver on my board in my best ball rankings. Have them at wide receiver twenty four. That makes him a number two wide receiver by strict by the number but could be a really good number three wide receiver. So let's look though at at the fact that all right there are targets. That t higgins and tyler boyd need to get here in this offense that is in fact. Those two guys are going to eat up a lot of targets but aj green had a hundred and four targets last year. One hundred and four now. He didn't produce anywhere near that level. He buddy had a hundred and four targets. Lashari caught forty seven passes. He had just five hundred twenty three yards last year. And he had just two touchdowns on those hundred and four targets if you just give those hundred and four targets tamar chase roths. I'm predicting twenty more catches. I'm predicting close to five hundred more receiving yards on predicting three to five more touchdowns. I think tha martinez can put up those kind of numbers in this offense. I haven't ranked at wide receiver. Twenty four. I think you can make the argument. That's a little light that but the problem here is he still have the questions. Joe burrow was wonderful to see him out there this week at ota's as he's recovering from that devastating knee injury. And you still have to. Really good targets see higgins is coming off a great rookie. Season were The he moved all around play. Can place max complacency tyler boards one of the premier slot receivers in the nfl. This is obviously going to be a base eleven personnel team. We know that it's going to be mixing out of the backfield. Those three receivers are going to play and coming majority of the snaps. I actually have to march as ranked the highest of my cincinnati bengals wide receivers. They're close and again the reason i don't have as higher than this is because i respect what what they have at the wide receiver position. I chased Wide receiver twenty four. I have tyler boyd. Wide receiver twenty eight. And i have t higgins wide receiver. Thirty two. that is a really tight. Bunch of wide receivers here. It's hard to differentiate them right now. But i think jamal Fits the profile of a dominant x receiver. He's nasty he's physical he's athletic. There's so much to like about this guy. The fact that joe burrow through them the ball and a national championship season. There's a lot to like about him there as well. I love the fit. The only reason he's not a top twenty receiver for me and not to say he can't finish top. Twenty is because of that competition for targets. They're going to be able to spread that ball round so a couple of thoughts here first of all today. jay green just have the worst season in wide receiver. History i mean the way. You just described that joe. I can't imagine a guy doing less with that many targets a lot. Ross if you want me to get into some numbers as i go through. And i and i bring up our database here at fantasy points dot com it was. I don't want to call it the worst wide receiver season in history. But for a guy who has the pedigree. Ross oven green. I mean it was pretty much up there. So let's let's take a look at. Let's take a look at aj. Greens target share vis-a-vis where he produced in my my databases loading here. Because like you said. I mean i'm trying to compare and contrast him to like Is peers at the position. But this is a guy who at one hundred and four targets. Okay that is a sizable portion of the target. Share that aj green hat so you you take a look at a hundred and four targets and and what that means okay. So i'm looking at adam. Feeling adam feeling had one hundred eight targets and you know how he produced so let's let's take hundred and four targets for aj green. He averaged seven seven. Fantasy points per game to go down to somebody else who average less than seven fantasy points per game. You're going all the way down. Anthony miller who had seventy six targets in average six point nine fantasy points per game aged greens catch rate was thirty seven point seven. That is abominable. I mean it was just horrific at that At that at that number. So you're looking at just a just a horrific production so one hundred and four targets seven fantasy points per game. Npr you're going all the way down. Anthony miller remember. That's down all the way seventy six targets but if you wanna contextualized this even further ross and i don't want to do this. This is a rookie wide receiver. Pass it wanted just crap on agent green at a hundred and four targets. He had one hundred eleven point three total fantasy points. Npr that's behind demure bird. That's behind travis. Volga who had sixty seven targets. That's behind antonio brown who had sixty one targets. That's behind david moore. Who had forty seven targets so like he had a horrible season. And even if you just give jomar chase those targets jomar chase is going to produce. And he's going to produce a high level. I'm pretty confident in that are would about. Let's move on. Let's get the jalen waddell in miami this one this one's a much tougher ranking for me again. One one thing you're gonna see with lot of these round wide receivers is. I wasn't terribly fond of a lot of the landing spots and this is kind of one of them. I obtain them waddell at wide receiver. Forty eight and i anticipate the jalen waddell. Although i thought i thought he was actually a better prospect than henry ruggs. I wonder if he's going to frustrate in much. The same way did as a rookie. Just those popoff games where he's gonna catch three passes for one hundred ten yards and a touchdown a five passes for thirty yards and two touchdowns and then he's also going to have weeks where he has one catch for nine yards. And and the reason. I look at it like that is number. One the depth here. You know it's not. It's not like an elite receiving core. But you do have guys who were going to command the football and in ways. You're you're going to get the devante. Parker get football will fuller is going to get the football. He has one game suspension to start the year. But he's going to get the football when he's out there might kosinski is going to get the football. They drafted another tight end So there is a there is competition for targets here too. It didn't have a great rookie season So they the there's there's some questions there though to of course as a war would j them. Lana which is a recurring theme here. From the first round wide receivers from their time together at alabama so from from this perspective. I have jalen. Waddell is an upside in best ball wide receiver. Forty eight if i'm doing redraft. I'm probably going to be overall i. I would tend to think jalen is going to be pretty annoying in that format as opposed to best ball when you can use those popoff weeks and and not worry about the the low end weeks. That was exactly what i was gonna say. It sounds like he's better off for best ball. What about his alabama teammate. Devante smith through went number ten overall to the eagles in terms of landing spot and in terms of of where somebody like. Devante smith of his caliber can get targets. Philadelphia's a really good spot. The question is how much are they going to throw. The ball with jalen hurts at quarterback. Jalen hurts take step up from from completing twenty fifty two percent of his passes as a rookie or they just going to be more of a run based team. But raw the every anticipation anticipation from me and in our staff a fantasy points. Dot com is devante. Smith's going to come in here in philadelphia and we this team in targets. That's my anticipation it's just a matter of. How many targets is that going to be. I have them at wide receiver. Thirty three overall drafting him pretty aggressively as a number three wide receiver for fantasy. And i think. I mean i guess you can make the argument that thirty. Three's actually kind of conservative for me But i anticipate he's gonna come in. He's going to start right away. Jalen rager their first round rookie from last year. Didn't have a great rookie season. But he said he's going to be playing the slot this year. That's what he said at. Ota's he's gonna move round but they're going to put them in the slot. I anticipate they're going to put devante smith at x and z. I think he's probably a little bit of a better fit. As z. As you know from talking to greg cosell on your key can get out physical over there. Nothing against his toughness. It's just the fact that he weighs one hundred sixty six pounds. But i think you want to get to monty smith on the move. Ross i think. I think he's going to leave philadelphian receiving as a rookie. I really do. I thought the jalen reagor planning a lot in the slot was interesting. I wasn't expecting that while. Yeah it's also. I mean eagle fan flipping the f out. Because apparently that's the reason they didn't draft jalen. Justin jefferson last year is because they viewed him as a slot receiver. Jalen reagor is going to be now. You also have to keep in mind. This is a new scheme. Nick serianni is coming in. And you know what i'm willing to do. Ross an again rookie. Wide receiver podcast here. But i don't think anybody should be writing off jail. And i'm not telling you the draft him in the sixth round but i don't think anybody should be writing off jalen reagor. After last year the entire offense and feeling was broken. Broken peterson was broken. They had so many injuries. Rager got hurt and try At the beginning of the season had no offseason it. You know if there's a situation where you're gonna give a guy a clean slate. That's probably what that being said. Demonte smith has has the mindset. That i didn't see from jalen. Rigor he obviously has the pedigree alabama while in the heisman trophy. It's going to lead this team proceeding are. Let's get to khudairi darius tony. He went twentieth overall to the new york. Giants have no freaking clue guy. You're going to say you're going to see like with wattle and tony and like it's a really tough a tough scene here for ranking these guys current in my best ball tony at wide receiver. Seventy five and if and if you want me to be honest. I'm looking at that right now. And i'm like man that's low but it's just a just an expectation of where i'll probably be drafting guy. It's going to be as a wide receiver five or wide receiver six in best ball. There's a ton of competition for targets with new york. They just brought in kenny golladay. You obviously have pro bowl tight end. Evan ingram who's going to get one hundred targets and drop half of them but he's going to get those targets sterling. shepherd is still there darius. Slayton is still there. They brought in kalle rudolph. Who's mostly gonna block. But i'm sure he's gonna command some red zone targets saquon barkley out of the backfield so my question is when it comes to these giant receivers. Do i want any of them. And i'm not really sure i do. I think maybe the play here is to invest in daniel jones. I think daniel jones might be one of those fantasy quarterbacks who everybody thinks thinks so. Nobody wants them but he can do a little bit with his legs. And you've got a roster ear. That's kind of loaded up at wide receiver and tight end and running back where you can foresee daniel jones putting up some numbers in this offense but could area's. Tony is a very rural receiver. Just learning the position at florida. He was almost exclusively out of slot. He's running one to kinda routes you have to think he's gonna come in and play the slot maybe he'll come out of the backfield now and again but that also raises the question. What are they doing. Sterling shepard who clearly in his. Nfl career has been better when he's played out of the slot. So are they going to play out of position. Do they think tony. I would guess if you draft tony in the first round you eventually think he can be more than just a slot receiver but are they going to let them is he gonna be learning on. The fly. is that going to affect his production. It's not really the kind of profile. I see that that that allows for a fantasy explosion as a rookie. Here i mean. I feel like they wanna try to get the ball in his hands and her be creative whether it's wide receiver screens or jet sweeps. I guess i don't know what to see. Whether or not jason garrett has them to be that creative to get him the ball that much you know when you think jason garrett. I don't think you think like a whole lot of Outside the box stuff. And that's the other question here. Jason garrett is always been running kind of offense coordinator and playcaller likes the run game. Saquon barkley is going to be back. And we'll see how his recovery progresses throughout the summer but it's just one of those weird fits that. I'm not sure how everything's going to go go go together. You know they have kenny. Golic always going to be the x year. We know that you know so quite frankly we know they wanted to draft monty. Smith at number eleven philly jumped on dallas clearly had no other use for a wide receiver. That early so philly jumped in the trade with dallas. But i'll be honest while i would just because a pedigree i would rank devante smith higher than tony. If you were with the giants i'd be asking some of the same questions here. Ross where the target is going to come from. It's just that. Tony is a much more Prospect than devante smith at this stage of their careers. The next guy in the first round interesting because nfl dot com and they have guys like niko collins. Terrorists marshall allies. More ahead of reshad bateman. Who went to the ravens near the end of round one. Pick twenty seven. I i like the pick for the ravens. I hate it for the fantasy. Feast because say whatever you want about lamar jackson. I mean. he's one of the most discuss players in the nfl. You could be the biggest lamar jackson ban on planet earth. And even you are not going to say you know what they need to do. Drop lamar back. Forty times a game. It's not gonna happen so the ravens come out here and look. Hollywood brown is specific kind of player. I think he was probably a little bit miscast if they were looking for that number one receiver. He also had big time prom drops last year. He's going to be in a better position to produce. I think now when the pressure isn't on them but look at the receiving corps with baltimore yet. We said at last year the number one receiver in baltimore was mark. Andrews tight net. He still there. They bring santa watkins who was the worst good player in the nfl. Or maybe the best bad player in the nfl. I'm not really sure which one. But he's one of the two They drafted rashad bateman. Who profiles to me as an ex. I think one of the problems that a lot of people might add maybe. Nfl dot com. Had this problem as well as he weighed in. I think a lot less than people anticipate. I think he came in at under one ninety his pro day which surprise people. This is a guy who on tape looks like. He's playing in two hundred pounds just kind of a good go up and get it. Possession receiver in the vein of allen. Robinson i really liked the prospect. The again the question is where are the targets coming from baltimore. Just doesn't throw the ball that much and you can love. You can love lamar jackson and know that he's not going to attempt six hundred passes this year. It's just not the way that it's going to work out. I've got rashad. Bateman right out at wide receiver eighty again probably a little bit low. I think there's a chance he comes in here and leaves this wide receiver group in targets. But this is a team that continues to invest in the position and none of the guys produce so you bring in. Sammy watkins ins. You have hollywood brown. They drafted thailand wallace who felt the fourth round. And we'll certainly talk about 'em on a on a future podcast. But i love the pick for the team. I love the pick. Four lamar jackson and his development. I hate fancy so those are all the first round picks we did chase waddell. Smith tony and bateman. There's a bunch of second and third round picks. We will get to next week which we don't need to spend as much time on. They're not going to be ranked as high by you guys like elijah more rondell more. I guess my question. Joe's we'll have more guys to talk about next week to kind of bridge. The gap between the two shows rookie wide receivers. What have they done in recent years. It feels like is certainly. If you talk to people where we're from rookie. Receivers have been awesome other than the ones the into philadelphia metcalfe and obviously justin jefferson. It feels like they've been good. Terry maclaurin way to these guys ended up at the end of the year. Have they been like good. Good for fantasy or just good for rookies fantasy while justin jefferson was good good for fantasy. I mean he had the best rookie season ever by a wide receiver. Although i mean i'd still take i'd still take rating bosses rookie season. Minnesota has a good history of that. Now there's guys who have been good and there's guy de decay. Metcalf was a guy who was kind of a tale of two season. I think he came on in the second half of his rookie season. Terry mclaren is a guy who produced pretty much from the outset and didn't have like a massive rookie season but clearly showed the potential but the history of guys like aj green. julio jones. you know these guys going high in the first round with the exception of that weird twenty seventeen draft where you had john ross and in corey davis and mike williams all go in the top ten and none of them produces rookies John ross to this point still hasn't produced at all He's the giants too by the way. So there's another body. There is a These guys. I think you anticipated. They go in the top ten top half the first round. These guys are going to produce at some point. So yeah i mean it's it's a case by case basis though. Ross you compare and contrast them as targets you know you look at the fact that last year Rager went ahead of a bunch of receivers who ended up out producing him. You know he goes in the first round. Justin jefferson goes one. Pick later brandon. Iu goes a few picks later. They out produce them. Then you go to the second. Round and t higgins and chase claypool when michael pittman out produce them so it you know it. I think situations a big part of it. The coaching is a big part of it detrick. A big part of it. There's there's a reason why. I like guys like monty smith and andrew maher chase way more than jalen waddell. There's a reason. I like all of those guys way more than tony and bait and the guys who want at the end of the first round because a draft capital does matter and beat the situations. Were better for those guys. So it's a case by case basis for me but if you just go in and say well. I'm not drafting a rookie. Wide receiver that that is a way to narrow point of view to take. And if you go in and say drafting all rookie wide receivers. You're probably not going to be very successful doing that either. Always and never are never the right answer. That doesn't make sense. Never are never the right answer unless we're saying that you should always go to points dot com and use the code.

Joe Dolan's 2021 QB Tiers

"It's time to eat four. Sit down and get ready to consume an abundance of fantasy football knowledge from russ tucker and joe dolan now on the fantasy feast and podcast. Yeah the fantasy feast eating podcast presented by draftkings kings. We love draft kings. We love draftkings best ball. And in fact i'm about to announce the final three contestants for the august best ball which means if he didn't make the best ball. I'm sorry better luck next year however have a better luck next week because the next two weeks joe and i will go over all comers. Everybody that's coming in to our fan tracks league. I gotta check with band tracks. By the way with it being so customizable we might be able to have a bunch of dudes in that league. Maybe it sixteen teamer who knows. Fan tracks dot com slash. Ross if you wanna get it on that this is the fancy feast podcast. I am at ross tucker. Nfl on social. We are at ross. Tucker pied the final three folks who are going to be in the august best ball. Scott sheriff who's the man and also created the tiers of and song. You will hear momentarily debbie kramer. Hello debbie debbie. Went to fan tracks dot com slash ross. But maybe she got confused. I don't know but she went to fan tracks dot com slash. Ross not for the season. Long league with me and joe but rather for the best ball. Urine debbie f. a. n. t. r. a. x. dot com slash. Ross and then. Jeffrey mcintyre went the extra mile worby parker and fantasy points dot com where he used the code. Twenty-one feast which is what all of the cool kids are doing now because fantasy points dot com is where joe dolan lives literally lives on this website all day generating content at f. g. underscore dolan the fantasy guru. I gotta tell you. Joe i am sensing and feeling so much more fantasy football buzz this year at this time then there was last year this. I'm i don't know bits kobe. I don't know if it's because there's preseason games but a lot of people asking me about fantasy football right now and talking about it. That weren't last year at this time. Check check check. All of the above kovin fans are going back the stadiums i know we have. I know there's still some challenges not trying to say that there aren't but people are just excited. The nfl got through last season. There's anticipation that the nfl is going to get through this season. Hopefully with fewer hitches and we're seeing the interest on the website. I think we're seeing the interest on the podcast up. My neighbor across the street has game up to me he goes. Do you wanna start a neighborhood. Fantasy football league. And i'm like. I'm very reticent to do that because i don't want people to think like i'm i'm hustling them on like because i'm not going to be the first guy in the neighborhood who's going to be a day that let's play fantasy football Mostly because if i lose it's really embarrassing so but now i'm sensing that all over the place that fantasy football is a huge deal. I mean it's it's a huge deal. Every year it drives interest in the nfl. It drives interest in small smaller market teams but this year after last year. You know people weren't in the office taken time off. you know. people were depressed. Last year is season. Even going to happen. It's happening this year. Like practices teams are get vaccinated preseason games and i think everybody's just really looking forward to it absolutely and i gotta tell you i frigging love. The preseason games. We'll be talking about it before. But i just love. Seeing young players and in particular young quarterbacks played for the first time. It's actually joe like perfect timing for you. And i'd be doing your quarterback tears after we just saw all the rookie quarterbacks for the first time last time last week and we won. I'm surprised they're not on the elite here based on the fan bases for the jets and the bears. And the houston. Have all the rookies in the elite. Beer as greg cosell says. Just start carving. The boston start working on the induction speech is already. I mean now look ross. Would i rather they look good than bad. Yeah if guys looked bad. Would i be like freaking out. Probably not i mean if i remember correctly and this is anecdotal but i think i think i'm right. I think cam. Newton was crap in the preseason his rookie year and then he threw for four hundred fifty yards per game. Like so i mean let's just let let's you know obviously it's not the only takeaway here. No it's not but it's still fun to see cited about it speaking of that. Let's get into your quarterback tears because well let me take a step back. Just one question. We saw everybody in the preseason. Now joe we saw preseason week one. A lot of guys played a lot of guys on new teams free agents. A lot of rookies. What what are we taking. What whatever using that information for if guys look good note if guys play a lot with the first team know if guys played less with the first team than you anticipated no but i don't wanna freak out about week one preseason observations or when in a couple of weeks when we've got more preseason games what we'll do a full kind of overlook of observations. I know people are freaking out about the miami backfield right now. I've never known miles gaskin anyway. That's not a name. We mentioned very much on this show but people are freaking out about that. Oh you know wise miles gaskin playing behind malcolm brown. We'll talk about all that down the line but you know i'd rather guys look good but these are defenses. Are not scheming. Offenses are probably just trying to get into a rhythm and and it. It's really something where most of the time. I'm just taking depressant guys. Don't get hurt unless walk ins playing then excited and i mean joe. None of us want to overdo it but obviously i. I do the eagles games. I'm so fired up for tomorrow night. It'll be the only game on by the way patriots eagles. So i think it's nfl network everywhere so all of you dudes and do debts. We'll be able to watch your boy tomorrow night. But i'll just say this there've been a lot of guys that are preseason stars nothing nothing. There's also been like victor cruz and russell wilson guys. That's like oh wow. They really are good. The thing. the only point on mentioned about quiz walk is it's really hard to make. Nfl players looked at slow. Really hard to make guys look that bad if you have speed you're going to. You're going to get a chance and there's a lot of guys who have speed who just never put it together for one reason or the other. But i obviously we're talking about the eagles wide receiver quest watkins. Who was like the start of training camp and now it looks like they might have all the sudden now. Ross not not to make this a full. Eagles focus podcast. They got a bunch of guys who can run after having the slowest offense in the nfl for like two years running like all of a sudden they've just got a bunch of guys who can run and quiz. Watkins is one of them. He has become a very popular late round. Best ball pick. Not just for me but for a lot of folks. Yeah i bet are. Let's get into the quarterback tears which means we get to hear from the great scott sheriff. Carrie underwood's keyboard player who also has awesome voice with me as a duet saying. Joe dolan if joe doling drafting. See if follow joe. Dolan turn to tears of joe doll. you know. it's even better if you watch it on. Youtube youtube dot com slash. Ross tucker. Nfl so you can see me singing along to it excited. Brian just sits there awkwardly in plays. It doesn't know what to do. Joe's a little confused. It's all great. I love it. And i love joe's quarterback tears. You got one two three four guys and your elite tier of quarterbacks joe what does it mean and their names are mahomes allen murray jackson. I guess i'm not surprised by any of them. Maybe cuyler murray a little bit. But i know the running elementary helps. Yeah when it comes to college just a bunch of the running elements the big plays. He's a splash player. And i'd like to see him by the way improve on that. I fought very similar his first two years. He was kind of a splash player. He's the running makes him a fantasy. Chico these are the guys who are the key codes right. The rich remark came up with the konami code. The contra code where you get thirty lives in contra down down up down left right left for ab start. Or i remember the ninja turtles game. That had that on any s and got the level select which was the coolest thing ever it. When i was growing up. These guys are like with the of mahomes who's just so efficient. These are the guys you are going to provide you with that weekly league winning upside however a lot of folks might be conditioned in the way that i've been conditioned over the years to thank these are the guys who are going to be too expensive in your fantasy drafts. I haven't ended up with much. Mahomes at all and fantasy drafts. Even though i'm more open to draft in that elite quarterback this year than happened in years past. Mahomes is still the guy that doesn't end up on a lot of my teams. He's going a little bit too early. Josh allen probably going a little too early as well the guy. This year. I've ended up. The most with is the guy who's actually the last of before in In adp that would be lamar jackson. A lamar jackson's adp is qb before his nfc. Add over the last two weeks. Apr is about fifty one fifty two which would put him at the beginning of the fifth round which i think is a very palatable price to pay for lamar jackson somebody without league winning upside. You might remember last year. Ross i was completely out on the mark jackson. I was not paying the price. Lamar jackson took in the second and third round. That turned out to be a pretty good call. Lamar jackson until the last month. Plus of the season really did not have a great fantasy campaign based on where he was being drafted that the downside is baked in. Now i am on the mark jackson. He of these or guys is the guy. I've been drafting the most because he's the cheapest of the four really good point. Got a question for you at the end related to the value of quarterbacks just in general that's interesting tier one. You've got to quarterbacks interesting. Tear dak prescott and zach wilson russell wilson. Oh gosh yeah russell. I was like what yeah sometimes shown. No i mean. I know he had that really. Nice sweet throw in the preseason game but why outgrow your first initial and the first initial sorry about that but no here's what it is with this year dak prescott obviously coming off the injury dealing with the shoulder injury. The number one question. I have with preska first and foremost. The guy was on a record-setting pace last year. He was gonna throw for six thousand yards. Why because the defense was abominable. Like i don't care how how much your offense humming keep in mind. The cowboys were losing games with dak prescott on bass the throw for six thousand yards last year. They don't wanna do that again. The thing about the cowboys. Though is i still think the defense isn't going to be very good. That's more than a one year project. Rebuilt it though it should be improved the other question with prescot. I'm not too worried about the shoulder injury. How much is he going to be running coming off that catastrophic ankle injury i think that's a fair question which knocks him down this year. But he's still has the great receivers and it's good to see that amari cooper is back in practice and actually anticipate playing in the preseason game this weekend which i think. A lot of people might be surprised by russell wilson. It was a tale of two seasons last year. He was cooking at the beginning. I think you could argue. He played maybe the five or six best games of his career. And then i know. Greg cosell very program or not not this program but one of your eight hundred programs. Ross came on and said russel. Wilson played the worst stretch of his football in the second half of the season his running. He doesn't have the rushing upside. Either of a kyle. Murray josh allen or a lamar jackson that knots russell wilson down here but those two really good receivers lock it in. Metcalf gives give him that solid ceiling his floors just a little bit lower than some of the guys above him. Though which is why. I knock them down here. Okay tier two. We've got more guys. Aaron rodgers justin herbert. Tom brady and matthew stafford now. I know joe. It's all about expected points. They're gonna score. But what's the difference between tier one and tier two. Okay so we have the leaked here too. You're wanting tier two tier. Two is the guys who have less upside with their legs. They've got to do more of their damage with their arms. Just in herbert kind of is inbetween tears. But the thing about herbert. Last year. And i'm interested to see how it works at a new offenses as big an arms justin. Herbert had he was actually one of the lowest in terms of average depth. Target among starting quarterbacks in the nfl. Obviously you're throwing austin or and keenan allen that goes not guys you were going to be enhancing your dot but just in herbert. Maybe a little bit less downfield action than you might have thought from somebody who's got his kind of arm but these are the pocket passers. These are the guys who you know. Rodgers can can get in the end zone. Every now and again rushing a brady will do the sneaks I think herber has probably more rushing outside than he showed last year. But these guys are going to have to get it done with their arm week in and week out and because they don't have that lamar jackson level rushing ability. It's going to lower their floor which which means they can Be a little bit mediocre some weeks and that might not suit your fancy they are. These are guys who are not canonical quarterbacks. They're very good fantasy options. They're very steady fantasy options. I don't. I'm not upset when some of these guys ended up on my teams but these are these are not konami code. Fantasy quarterbacks are two we got a guy into. It's kinda crazy isn't it. That rogers was the mvp last year. And you have them as essentially quarterback seven. I mean it just goes to show how important the running part of it is right. Oh abs- nobody was better just throwing it then rogers. So but the thing is is like mahomes and josh allen. Do they really run that much. Joe rose mahomes like if you wanna separate mahomes out into his own here. That's fine. I mean but but guys just in the most efficient passing offense in the nfl. He's got arguably the best wide receiver and tight end in the nfl. He does to a little bit with his leg. Maybe a little bit more than you think. I mean last year. Patrick mahomes did run for three hundred eight yards in two touchdowns and fifteen starts. That's not huge. That certainly something. Justin herbert can do. But patrick mahomes is patrick mahomes. It's not really fair to compare somebody else to him. But i mean ross. Josh allen this guy runs and he runs effectively the numbers up right now. But i mean like. We're talking eight rushing touchdowns as a rookie nine rushing touchdowns in his second season and ate more rushing touchdowns last year. Josh allen has twenty five rushing touchdowns in three seasons that is massive massive floor that he gives you the thing that is. Maybe a little. Concerning josh allen is rushing yardage has gone down every year from six thirty one as a rookie to five ten to four twenty one. But i mean he's he's the line back he is going back. Josh allen gives you a lot more with his legs than than than aaron rodgers gives you okay. Speaking of giving you stuff with their legs tier three is very interesting. Tier three is just one guy as just jalen hurts. The eagles starting quarterback so jalen hurts is in a tier of his own. Because i feel like he's a pretty pivotal guy if you if you save yourself. I need a running quarterback because he is cheaper than some of these other guys if you want if you want to invest in jalen hurts this year and there by the way there's a reason east. Qb twelve eighty adp. He's about a ninth round. Pick eight nine round. That's that's roughly where he's going if you want jalen hurts and you think he's going to be a league. Winning fantasy quarterback thanked the deshaun watson. Rumors thank him. I don't think anything's going to happen on that front. You've you and i talked about the that on this podcast countless times. What do i don't know. But i just don't i. Just don't see team training for him right now. Least of all philadelphia who apparently has been getting a nice reporter jalen hurts. He's improved throughout camp. Ross i know he was three seven in the preseason opener but to me looked sharper than that. They had played very well. I mean irked. Had a horrible drop which is very surprising regular. Had one should've caught wasn't a great though when she has should've caught one of the incompletions was hurt. Doing a good job throwing the ball away and then the other one was a deep shot over a ninety eight yard. Why it was i think he. He got bumped off a little bit quiz day. Which throughout the timing a little bit but honestly if if hurts plays like that every game the eagles will be a lot better than people think. Yeah and you know. We talked about how they have more speed it receiver than you might think with quiz walk in jalen regular has all of a sudden been like one of the studs of camp. But here's the deal. Jalen hurts in to take it from a bigger perspective. Jalen hurts is not in the lamar jackson. Kyle murray tier of quarterback because he doesn't have a track record all right. He doesn't have the like. He doesn't have the draft pedigree. First and foremost he wasn't a first round. Pick that you have the shawn watson rumors and to this point. The guys made four. Nfl starts okay so he didn't play well a maybe two of them so i mean there's a lots worry about here but here's the problem at years. The thing jalen hurts. why is he in. Its here entirely by himself because if the thing about hurts is i think people are worried that he's not going to start seventeen games whether he gets bent for joe flacco. Who's i mean. I would still say he's a good backup Who has a pedigree or they make a treat for watson or or just. Something goes wrong here but the thing is here. If you're telling me jalen hurts who is the current star in philadelphia by the way is going to start seventeen games. I'm ranking jalen. Hurts in my top five at quarterback i mean just look at the numbers that jalen hurts put up last year in his three full starts. He finished as the quarterback ten huby one overall and qb sixteen in weekly scoring the average twenty five point two fantasy points per game largely because his legs he average zero point six two fantasy points per dropback which ranked six best in the league and purse words in solutions. He led all quarterbacks in scrambles yards. Office scrambles first downs rushing and scramble touchdowns in his three full starts. He did it in a broken offense with horrible supporting cast of beat up offensive line. He bailed the pocket too early. Yes but i mean. I think you can make the argument. That jalen hurts his rookie season and those starts at the end of the year. We're pretty similar to what lamar jackson did at the end of the year in the more jackson's first rookie season when he remember he was horrible in the playoff game against the chargers but then they took an offseason built an offense around him and he was better. I'm not trying to tell you. Jalen hurts as talented as lamar jackson. But what i'm trying to tell you is his fantasy. Upside is very similar. The overall quarterback one however miniscule that possibility might be is in jalen hurts his range of outcomes this season. And that's why. I think at this at this here on this tier here. I think jalen hurts is kind of a pivotal guy here and somebody who just offers so much more upside at his. Adp than than anybody else. Quite frankly i joe tier four ryan tannehill joe borough on our first rookie quarterback trevor lawrence. These these are guaranteed starting quarterbacks of a little bit more questions about him when it comes to tannehill he's he's been perpetual not perpetual. He's only been in tennessee for two years. But since he's gotten tennessee. He's been good value at the quarterback position. Great value quite frankly but the volume questions. The fact that they lost arthur smith. I think those are valid concerns. I don't know of. Julio jones that they really anticipate in frankly playing a full seventeen games schedule on a full sheriff snaps. They said they're going to manage him. Joe borough is hat is coming off the injury. He's got a great supporting cast but he's talked about how the mentally getting back has been very tough for him. So a joe. Borough is somebody who again. I don't expect them to run around a whole lot out there. More of a pocket passer with some questions and trevor lawrence is a rookie with questionable. Supporting cast in jacksonville. He can run though. And i actually think. Trevor lawrence is more than valid as amid round pick He's been a guy. I've been getting invest balls especially if i'm pairing them with more of a boring kind of a pocket passer like maybe a kirk cousins or on the higher end. Somebody like brady. What about let's get to tier five. Two rookies and i think i know this category it is man. There's a lot of upside there if they play a lot of games but we just don't know how many games they're gonna play right fields and trae land. You know if you were to tell me these guys are going to start seventeen gamed. How even like fifteen games. I'm probably ranking them. In my top twelve at quarterback you know by the way if you're on if you're on some best ball sites trae lands already like quarterback eleven in eighty p like. I mean he's getting drafted at hurts. He's getting drafted at anna hill. Like i mean people you are not getting trae lance for cheap if you're playing best ball right now but these are the two guys who they're different from jalen hurts because we know jalen hurts starting week. One barring injury. We're not sure about these guys. Even though my my whole take is. I don't think you make those trades up if you're going to sit these guys for full year but these are guys who in your home leagues you know. I tend to think in your home leaks. your office. Leagues people are going to shy away from fields in lance because oil. they're not starting. I gotta get somebody who's gonna start you know. And i think you can execute a late brown quarterback strategy very effectively with these two guys like not only could you pair them with like baker. Mayfield or kirk cousins. Somebody who's got a really good opening run. If you wanna go complete dumpster diving just pair them with the guy that they're that they're that they're paired with already in on their own teams. Andy dalton jimmy garoppolo her basically going on drafted so you can make a late round quarterback strategy despite the guys getting pushed up the board. Like your like your jackson's chrysler. Murray all the running quarterbacks there's very few of those middle round cheat code guys hurts is one of them hurts us baby the only middle round chico guide but these are the guys here. These rookies who you can have some patients and you can hold him on your bench. Even if they're not starting week one. These are the guys who provide that super high upside running quarterback who could basically deliver you a league and they can do it for in your home leaks not too expensive price in best ball. They're much more expensive. Tier six is a whole bunch of dudes baker. Mayfield kirk cousins. To tunga via loa matt ryan ryan fitzpatrick daniel jones. Ben route this burger. Derek carr zach wilson. Let me guess these are the guys that are pretty much guaranteed to start. All seventeen games provided they're healthy and they're salad quarterbacks without a ton of upside. Yeah but you got guys like especially cousins by the way was like a top twelve quarterback like nine times last year cook. Her cousins got a little more upside than you think. But the other cool thing about these guys. Especially if you're if you if you draft the trevor lawrence or you know even a jalen hurts and you're like i want to see how he plays before i trust my fantasy team to him or fields or a lance hurt cousins baker mayfield. Ben rothlisberger these guys. Who opened the season with a really nice one against like I think these guys. Like i think the browns played the chiefs early and they might be underdogs in that game but it could be shootout like you know. The steelers are seven point underdogs in week one against buffalo will back could be a potential shootout. So you can see some numbers getting put up in that game so these guys in this here who are either. Qb twos or guys who you can pair who have a nice early run of games we compare with a tray. Lancer just deals while you try to weather. The storm await those guys to be out. There got it that makes perfect sense joe.

Yeah let's e maybe the fantasy feast presented by draft kings. Of course we are in by the way with the july best ball draft. I took derrick henry at four. I had some debate between henry chimera. But maybe i'll hear from joe momentarily what he thinks. I will say this getting on the august best ball. Best ball is the best ball. That's why it's called best ball. All you have to do is take advantage of any of the sponsors at ross tucker dot com and then zenit to me rose at ross tucker dot com. Because we need you gots and really we want you guys.

At ross tucker. Nfl at ross. Tucker pod cannot wait to go against you guys in the august best ball and by the way you can go against joan in the season-long fan tracks league fan tracks dot com slash. Ross that i've been talking about on the ross tucker football podcast. The gore mentioned joe dolan of course from fantasy points dot com. If you're not signed up for bansi points dot com using the code. Twenty-one feast what are we even doing here. Well i mean what what are we even doing. Check out joe on social media at f. g. underscore dolan joe. It's august. it's drafting season. We actually have training camp reports and preseason games people are going nuts about fancy football right now and ross there is. We're seeing the subscriptions role in. But i can't believe how many people are not taking advantage of the promo code. Mike i mean hey look no skin off my back you know. Hey you wanna give us more money. That's all of like more power to you but twenty-one feast gets you discount code. I mean come on like. We're seeing the subs role in august as a huge every year in july. Rely on you know. Get you own a business. You're like you know. And then august. The car turns august and then the subscriptions were just rolling in constantly ross. I can't believe anybody would not take advantage right now. We've got your offense of line tears up on the website. We've got the franchise focus series. We've got the fantasy point generator. Which is our in house draft. Assist tool like i can't even begin to describe and by the way nothing. I mentioned even include their embedding package. Like i know. I try not to put the hard sell on here. Ross this is. This is our podcast or weakened talk analysis. But if you're not using that code twenty one vs and signing up to the website right now. I think you're making a mistake. I really do totally agree. Twenty-one feasts get you that discount. today's a big day. joe because we are starting tiers of dolan. This was popularized years ago. With tears of evan evan silva but now our guy and we love them is joe dolan and our guy scott. Sheriff who i think is still part of carrie underwood's band i gotta check on that scott. Let me know. Yeah by the way scott if you ever come to greenville south carolina. My wife is a big carrie underwood fan. I'm just throwing that out there. Hey when he when she came to her she. My wife and i got to meet her. Because it's scott yeah dream bill. We got the bones taku wellness arena here in greenville. We got some good big macs. Just throwing that out there all right. Everybody just enjoy. Do this say we retire. Do if joe doling drafting see baby better this year if follow joe dolan. Turn deers joe. Dole yes i love it i mean what a mash up whatever they call that with scott share. Who by the way has a really nice voice. Scott really nice voice. That was amazing. All right we're getting into the tears. Joe and everybody has rankings. Everybody and their brother has rankings. I feel like we need to tell them every week every time this time of year why tears are important. While there's it's the easiest way for me to kind of get a point across a one of the one of the things. That jon hansen has always said that he always taught me was don't be a rankings. Don't be a ranking slave. And what he meant by that was when says that just because somebody on a projection. She is a rb five. Doesn't mean that like you should assume one hundred percent of the time or be five is going to be better than rb six and that's not even counting for things like injury and things that happen all year. You know obviously christian. Mccaffrey going down last year. That's something you couldn't predict but what tears are is it provides you a really It provides you a baseline of where you should be kind of looking at players and comparing them and kind of even though you might prefer somebody within its year giving yourself like an out like saying all right. These are the guys who i had. Who i think would be the number one running back on my team and if i get one of those guys i'll be ultimately happy now tears. I think are much more important. If i'm doing like salary cap or an auction draft. I think. I i have an auction draft plan up at fantasy. Points dot com. That really breaks that entire thing down but even in a snake draft. These things are going to help you. And let me just throw an example to you since. Ross you and i are talking best ball so in best ball in basketball leagues. Most people are going to do more than one now. Maybe like i do them all off season as soon as the draft is over. So i'm going to end up being in one hundred plus. But here's the point where i'm getting at when it comes to tears. Let's just say. I draw the seven th pick in in ten consecutive best ball drafts all on the same platform and in all ten of those drafts. I have a choice between aaron jones and saquon mark. I am not. Because i have them in the same tier and we'll get into those tears. I am not going to draft personally. Aaron jones over saquon barkley. All ten of those drafts. Even if i had him ranked higher on my projections. Why is that the case because within the same tier. We're not. We're not that smart. Ross i i like to think we can figure some things out but we are not so precise where we can definitively say the difference between rb six rb. Seven is so significant that you should be making the same pick ten times out of ten so if a guy is in the same tier. I don't think i'm smart enough to deduce which of these guys is certainly better than the next now. If i had the choice between dalvand cook and aaron jones ten times out of ten on taking cook nine times ten times out of ten. Because i have him significantly higher in terms of tears but within the same tier i am going to mix and match because i think these guys were so similar that we can't all of a sudden just say oh just because this guy's ranked seventh and this guy's ranked dade that the seventh guys guy. You should draft every single time if they're in the same tier that's the importance of to your. That's that's the best way for me illustrate it and i think that's a really important thing especially if you're just getting into fantasy to understanding putting your own together you might not agree with my peers. That's fine put your own tears together and say look for me to execute my strategy. I gotta get one guy here. I gotta get two guys from here. And i think that's the best way to put a team together all right so for all these tears. I don't think we need to talk about every guy. Joe we just now there might be questioned. So you're elite. Here is only two guys christian. Mccaffrey and dalvin cook. Tier one is alvin. Kamara derrick henry and zeke elliott. So what's the difference between a lee and tier one in your mind. What's being marriages volume. So it's just volume. And i think dobbin cooked now alvin kamara. I'm not putting him in that year yet. Because i have a lot of questions. About what new. Orleans offense is gonna look like i would think with the michael thomas injury. It's going to run through kamera but there are some big questions about that. Offense and in terms of carries alvin. Kamara he gets the passing down work but he just doesn't get the volume of carries. The dow dalvin cooking christian. Mccaffrey get like so. That's going to put him in its year. Lower than dalvin cooking christian mccaffrey. Who are the consensus two players in all fantasy this year. Derrick henry doesn't get the passing down work now. If you're not ninety nine ninety percent of the time if you bet against outliers fantasy football you're probably going to win. Derrick henry is a top five fantasy pick because he's been an outlier but he still doesn't get the passing down work which is why he's in that tier one below the elites here for me and ezekiel elliott is is a guy who in the past was in that elite. Here he's coming off a rough season. Dak prescott is still dinged up. I know zeke's in much better shape. You talked about that. Ross while you are voicing over the the song there but there are still. Some questions with ezekiel elliott. That happened falling below that elites year. for me. so there's some questions with those guys. That i just don't have about the top guys now. Mccaffrey and cook those guys who have had injury problems. Mccaffrey last year cook throughout his career. But when they're on the field these guys were just ahead heads and shoulders above the rest of the rest of the field. I made a mistake. Take henry over kamera tonight. I i love meeting back. But here's the thing doing wages in the ross. But i have major concerns about. Henry's workload the last two years. I'm concerned i'm already regretting the whole basketball i'm in the august best ball yes in dominate you in the august best ball the july best ball stupid and already blew it no. I don't think he blew it. I was taking henry overcome all off season. now i'm starting to diversify a little bit. I'll i'll pepper. And some. Because i had i the third and fourth pick like a metric ton of times no matter what platform is on so i was getting a ton of henry a now. I'm mixing it up with camerin elliott but again. These are guys in the same year so. Let's let's illustrate tears in another way. I'm not going to argue with you if you're like well. I like zeke better than derrick henry. All right well. I haven't been the same tier so like i like. I view that argument as a valid one so no. I don't think he made a mistake at all. You are betting on henry to be an outlier. But the thing is he's been an outlier the last number of years so maybe that's just a trend when it comes to dare henry that other guys just. It's a trend that other guys. Just don't ask tier two. Aaron jones saquon barkley john taylor antonio gibson austin heckler who by the way equa went third in our draft best ball draft something a little lots real high. What's the difference between tier two and tier one while these guys who have who just have less of a track record more questions about them. Maybe more competition. I will fully admit. Ross when i sent you this list of tears. Jonathan taylor i had not yet heard about the clinton nelson surgery. Which is another blow to jonathan taylor so if you want to consider maybe draw dropping. Jonathan taylor another tear into tier three. I'm okay with that but aaron jones. Look ethan we're talking outliers. Aaron jones has had ridiculous touchdown volume. Now that might just be the way the packers operate. There's no more jamal. Williams but aj dylan is still there so you wonder just how big a workload aaron jones is going to have saquon. Barkley itself evident. He's coming off the injury. How how much is is he gonna play early in the air. How well is he going to respond to the recovery. That self evident why he's not in the tier one or the elite year antonio gives an. Im super-duper high on this year. I think he's got the best chance to be. Twenty sixteen david johnson of anybody in this in this Maybe in a draft Maybe and he's available in the second round. I freaking love him. In the second round if i'm getting an elite wide receiver in the first round or even if i'm going double double and getting to running back at the beginning of my draft. I love antonio gibson in the second round. I make an argument for him. In the first round. Ecuador i think is like kamara light. I'm just wondering how that new coaching staff is going to utilize them. He's an elite receiver. I think that's why he probably third in our draftkings best ball. It's because somebody was like what is the difference between this guy in alvin kamara. He just doesn't have the track record. That alvin kamara has. But i like i especially like austin on your leagues. That's a guy who non pr half the argue. Probably knock a little bit but these guys have some significant upside but just maybe they lack the track record. Maybe they have some competition behind them. Maybe there's a new coaching staff. That's giving me just a little tiny bit of a pause which wrapped in these guys over somebody. Like of ezekiel elliott or alvin. Kamara yeah like in my head. I don't crunch the numbers like you do. But in my head. I feel like i'd rather have aaron jones over zeke elliott any day of the week and that's a question. Yeah i mean. I just what i saw from both those guys. Last year ziegler his last leg jones looked awesome. So that's interesting. Speaking of tears by the way you know what is an elite tier when it comes to the job. Search lincoln lincoln jobs has made it easier to get the candidates worth interviewing faster. And it's free. Look we all know how hard is to hire. These days created job posted minutes on lincoln jobs to raise your network and beyond to the world's largest professional network over seventy million people. Do any of you know anybody's not on lincoln. No you don't so they're on it. Everybody's there then you focus on the one the experience you need it filters it prioritizes you win linked in jobs helps you find the candidates worth interviewing faster you know every week. Nearly forty million jobseekers visit lincoln. Post your job for free at lincoln dot com slash food that's linked in dot com slash feast to post your job for free terms and conditions. Apply that actually seemed like a pretty easy best ball winner right there to get in the best ball draft with me. Joe just post a job for free tier three. Joe mixing nick chubb. Why am i blanking. On harris's first name dodgy. Nah because he's new the guy while the disrespect of having a rookie ahead a nick job like that just disrespectful. Ross ross did you not listen to me. They're in the same tier it's not really a header behind. I'm just putting the guys in the same diagram you have them like. I understand nick shove. The problem is the passing game work in cream. Hunt has gotten a significant amount of that when he's been active at the same time as nick job by the way thrilled. Nick got paid that guy for my money. Like when i watch him run he might be the best in the nfl. I'm partial to saquon barkley. But nick job i mean is just a monster. So he's in this year only because the passing game work. Joe mixon's got the offensive line concerns and the injury concerns. Najji says the offensive line concerns. And he's a rookie. I feel like their concerns are a little bit more than the guys in the tier above them By the way like. I said i would move jonathan taylor down into this tier now. Given the carson wentz injury and the clinton nelson injury. And i think you could probably compare him to maybe a version of niche. Oh who's going to get a little bit more work. Because i just think i like i. Don't think naim hines as good as kareem hunt. So i think. I've you jonathan taylor as a niche job. Who's going to get a little bit more work but there is not a guy who's got dinged up more of through no fault of his own than jonathan taylor these. I like week or so of cam. Yeah he is going to face some heavy boxes especially if its jacobson no question. Tier four is only two guys clyde edwards ee layer and j k dobbins which brings up a good point. Joe right now. Everybody that goes to ravens camp is raving about jk dobbins jk dobbins this jk daba zach gonna have a huge year. How do we feel about that. Kind of hype. Joe well. these are two second year backs who who didn't get off on like the perfect foot. Last year edwards galera ethics got more guaranteed work in the passing game but his gate. His passing game work wasn't enough last year to sustain. What i thought was going to be a very very good floor as a receiving back. I want to see him. Get more of that when it comes to dobbins. I'm just not sure how much past in game work. He's going to get but marking room has gone. We know they're going to work in gus edwards. I think the touchdown upside is massive for jk dobbins. The problem is you do have to bake in the back. That lamar is going to get some of those. And so is gus edwards. But i'm with you ross. J dobbins is regularly slipping into the fourth round. I am taking him as an rb to there. Maybe i went kelsey wide receiver wide receiver to open my draft kind of zero. Rv type of approach. While then i'm taking jk dobbins in the fourth round and on sleeping like a baby if he's my rb one with that kind of build. I like him there. Edwards layer the problem with edwards. Allaire i remember saying this summer that i'm going to be in on him. Frankly ross his. Adp hasn't fallen. As far as i thought it was going to. He's regularly sixth-round of second round pick rather j. dobbins at around and a half sometime around two around and a half cheaper in the same tier. I'd much rather have a different player in the second round. Like de'andre hopkins. Maybe darren waller and then at around cheaper get jay dobbins. Why haven't the same tears client edwards lower tier five de'andre swift from philadelphia mile sanders in philadelphia. David montgomery no connection to philadelphia whatsoever. That i'm aware of the one thing that i would say here when it comes to to. David montgomery's i wonder if by the end of the preseason olive you'd him in tier two low i. It's just with when it comes to montgomery it's like people just don't view them like he doesn't not a sexy pick but he's proven he can catch the ball. He had a great second half of the year last year. So he's the one who i think's probably got the better shot to move up of this year for the other. Two guys new coaching staffs competition in the backfield the andrea swift. I'd love to have in the tier with mixed in harrison job. Or even hell even. It's your higher with the gibson's the of the world but the jamaal williams signing is a big buzzkill for me. Anthony lynne's comments. This season saying views williams as a one. A kind of back is a big buzzkill to me mile sanders. They brought in kenny gain. Well i've heard. I've heard conflicting reports about sanders in camp. I had somebody there told me. He looks fantastic. And then i have somebody there who says you know what the drops are not getting cleaned up so there's enough questions they're given the fact that there's competition in that backfield. They signed kerryon johnson. They still boston scott jordan howard. Still there that's what keeps them from being tier above where i've you quite edwards alaron dobbins as the clear cut starters and clear cut potential bell cows on their team. I'm not sure. I view that from these guys here fix now we're getting into the guys like chris carson Darryl henderson and josh jacobs wile josh well. I know why josh jacobs is here. He never catches the ball. We've talked about the story. What about the other guys chris. Carson's had some injury problems and rashad pennies. Apparently looking really couldn't camp. So chris carson's one of those guys you could maybe make an argument to be in tier higher. I wouldn't i wouldn't necessarily disagree with you there. And when it comes to daryl henderson. It's just like what we haven't seen you know. Xavier jones is getting some high battery Rams camp but i will say this these are guys who if they're in the fifth round not not so much jacobs. I've really been out on jacobs this year. But but chris carson. Daryl henderson if i need a second running back in the fifth round these guys are available and i'll take them there and i'll take them happily tier seven is a pair rookies. Travesty t. n. And devante williams. Who speaking of hype. They've been a lot of devante. William site shurmur. I saw shurmur the o. c. n. denver saying this kid just gets it. Yeah and the question. Here is what point. If at any point this year is either one of these guys going to be the starting running back for their own team because you have established good players a james robinson. More so than melvin. Gordon i think i think the broncos are a little bit down on melvin gordon but i have these guys here because you might need to be patient with them but again. We brought it up last year. The rookie running backs in the second half of the year had a lot of league winning qualities. Jonathan taylor camakers De'andre andrea swift. Those rookie. Running backs had a great second. Half and led you to some fantasy championships. So now i'm looking at this and saying maybe you need to be patient. Maybe james robinson's getting fifteen to eighteen carries weeks one through six. Maybe melvin gordon. They decide they're going to start 'em weeks one through six and see what happens but i think in the second half of the year these guys both of whom by the way are getting camp hype. Travesty t. obscene. People say it looks uncomfortable. You know everybody's getting camp vibrate now. It's so hard to sift through that But i will right now. I view these guys. A second kind of league winners depending on when the teams are going to hand the reins over to them if at all teary is an interesting one. Mike davis miles. Gaskin chase edmund damian harris okay so davis gaskin and edmonds are kinda grouped together a of the bell cows who no one really believes their bell. Cows like an edmonds maybe less so because they signed james connor miles. Gaskin had the bell cow role last year but nobody trusts them because he lacked draft capital. Mike davis apparently has a bell cow potential role here in atlanta. But nobody trusts them because he really hasn't done it before he's on a new team chase. Edmunds was the receiving back for arizona. Last year was the more valuable fantasy back than kenyan drake for much of the season. But he's never had one hundred carries in the season. So these are the guys who like view him as like orbit. Low rb to flex place when it comes to damian harris. I'm putting him here because he has been the patriot running back. Getting so much hype. The problem is the reports from patriot. Camp right now are not like the reports at forty nine or camp or trey lands. Is i mean. They're already carbon his boss for canton at a forty niner camp. But damian harris if cam newton is not the starter. I love damian harris this year because of the touchdown equity if cam if cam newton is the starter with damian harris and i love the player cam newton as bad as he was last year and he was awful. He led the nfl with twelve rushing touchdowns from the quarterback position. That's not changing cam. Newton is still really good in that area. And i also wonder even if mack jones takes his job at some point. Is there a goal line. Package for cam newton. Because he's still really good in that in that area that not steaming harris from me a bit as much as i love the player and i love the things. Bill jackson saying about tier nine. We've got michael. Carter and trae sermon a couple of mid round rooks. Yes so michael carter. I think you could make an argument. Should be higher because he has been the jet starting running back but the one thing. He lacks his draft capital. He was a fourth round. Pick trae sermon was a third round. Pick and there's less of a pathway for him to be an immediate impact kind of player. I think he fits this forty nine or offense. Beautifully specially trace trae land to trays. There i just figure that out especially at trae. Lance becomes starting quarterback in opens up those running lanes. Odd you trade sermon as the league winner. I just don't think he's as good a bet. As the rookies a couple of years above them. Travesty devante williams tear tend to wrap it up rahim most third. Aj kenyan drake. James robinson latavius murray james connor. Jamal williams leonard fournette ronald jones. Melvin gordon tony. Power the one that jumps out there. Joe is james robinson after what he did last year. Yeah these are kind of your zero. R b type of targets so instance. Let's say draft christian. Mccaffrey at number one overall. In your best ball. And you just freaking load up on wide receivers quarterback tight end in those middle rounds. This is a strategy that graham barfield at our site has has dubbed not zero rb but zero rv or superhero rb. Where you get one guy you feel awesome about and then you fill out the rest of your running back group with spare parts. This is the kind of tier. If i'm doing a best ball draft. I'm getting two. Maybe three of the guys in this tier and just hoping they kinda mix match. Maybe one of them hits. Maybe there's an injury or something you know you see tony pollard. Here jamal williams. I think's going to get work. But at the andrea swift goes down. He becomes a bell cow. Leonard fournette was bell cow lashed year in the playoffs ronald jones better than them during the regular season. All these guys who have those kind of questions about him but you take you take a shotgun approach you try you. Try to spread it around and see. Maybe one of these. What may be one of those. Pellets is gonna hit here in the tenth round in the or ten all right. Here's my recommendation right now okay.

Why don't we bring on a man who is a legitimate legend in the fantasy sports industry and I don't say lightly I mean? I don't know that there's anybody that's been doing it for longer than Jon Hansen. The fantasy guru who started that website sold it. For opposite ZILLION dollars. I checked on twitter. It was a bazillion dollars. Now he started fantasy points dot com. Check him out on twitter at fantasy underscore guru guru. It's Ross. It's Joe. Thank you for gracing us with your presence. This is an honor to be on the fantasy feast podcast. It's been a while it's been a number of years to be with Joe and of course Ross to be with you it's fantastic and I appreciate everything you said there. There are a couple of people at least one who were in the industry. And doing this before me. Bob Harris Who's on Sirius? Xm Satellite Radio. I believe started a year before me. There's a couple of dudes doing magazines have been doing it for a while but in terms of like the online delivery of fantasy football content. Yeah I mean that's me and Bob Harris. I would think so. Maybe I'm second Ross. Second oldest okay. So I know you've told the story before and Dolans probably heard a million times. Okay but I WANNA know why year it was how old you were and what what the hell were you thinking like? I mean you just. Hey I'm GONNA have. My career is going to be as a fantasy football or is this like the mid nineties mid nineties. I've told a lot especially over the years last couple of years kind of writing little blog posts in twitter post kind of addressing the changes in my you know career and all that stuff so yeah nine hundred ninety four. I was working as a as a disc jockey you know. Come out you all that stuff and uh there there was a little. Tv Station in the Studio Long Story. Short that station all of a sudden had a good number of viewers were trying to do kind a local talk show programming and sports programming things like that. And you know a couple a guy in my league Kinda Kinda use the guru word when it when it came to me when my picks and prowess and all that and so that was in my head and I told the guy. This guy was doing this little. Tv show. I said you should me on to talk fantasy football? So they they call me the Guru my league and all that and he did I went on there and believe it or not and nineteen ninety. Four it was. It was quite popular so the next year I was a young father. Saw Twenty six years old twenty five. I believe in ninety four twenty six whatever mid twenties I was a young father had a college degree. It was not a great time in the economy. It was before the Internet blew up and I was looking to get into media and broadcasting and all that so I decided to start a business and do it on the side because my advice was really good on this show and ninety four. I said well I could. I kind of do this little newsletter and kind of market it and sell it on the TV show maybe make some residual income on the side to help out the family. And that's pretty much. What I did and the next year I got contacted by ESPN which is obviously incredibly fortuitous. And I was the first person to write about fantasy football on. Espn DOT COM actually. Did the first radio spots and actually wrote the first TV peace ever aired on ESPN relating to fantasy football. And then it just kind of snowballed from there. I was very aggressive. I was really into it. I was willing to do almost anything you know. I had some abilities in terms of writing and being able to broadcast things. Like that and Yeah it just kind of snowballed from there and I just kind of pushed hard for decades and basically here we are. But what's interesting? Is You know you mentioned the fantasy guru and all that yeah. That is the website that I did sell. I actually had kind of designs on kind of just doing media and all that but at the end of the day you know I had such a great collection of rockstars and firm place in the industry I said to myself. Wow this is really dumb if I don't continue with this. Not only that. Being active producing content on a website enables me to do the media without really any prep-work. Actually last year actually had to prepare for the Sirius. Xm radio show. This is BS. What the Hell am I doing here? I'm normally ready to go right so there were a lot of reasons but I just outlined a few of them so you know I thought maybe I'd be a little weirded out by it all starting over and all that but it's actually had the opposite effect. I'm Tom Brady here not to compare myself to the goat. But he's energized now in Tampa and I'm energized now at fantasy points dot com. I love it so I guess the the follow up question for me would just be. Obviously it's changed quite a bit and whatever it is twenty six years. What you know Joe does a terrible job of selling fantasy points on this show. Gioja says it's awesome cosell's on it. It's awesome did I mention Cosell I am like I am like the biggest cheerleader for fantasy. Points Dot Com. But since you started by the way chose the man he knows I'm just kidding but what is unique or different and people are GonNa think I'm like doing this as a plug. I'm really not like all the people already signed up which is a great fantasy points. Dot Com use the CODE FEAST ALL CAPS? What is unique in different about this site and sell me on it right like not. Forget ME FORGET JOE. Sell me on. What's unique and different about this? I and why people should subscribe. And really while you're doing that you're really talking about how the industry has changed over the years. Yeah well for one. Had I not been exposed around such a collection of brilliant people? I would still be semi retired. That really at the end of the day is the main reason why? I'm back in business here and work working actually work in a lot of hours here because the collection of people we have is so incredible. But you are correct in that. The industry has become so much more sophisticated than it was twenty five years ago obviously. I had an edge early on in the industry. I was just ahead of everyone. Basically always being really proactive always being aggressive and scouting young players and things like that. Have a really good intuitive. Feel for this You know obviously this to this day and age have a very large knowledge base to always go back on but again you know to give an example. One of my favorite examples is when I had a hard copy newsletter. And that's where it started before the Internet ninety five is a little too early to go one hundred percent online so it was still actually snail mail for couple of years. My my favorite analysis piece was a comment about Jamal. And this is what it was. Ross hard copy newsletter so space is at a premium right my analysis for Jamal Anderson Week. Whatever it was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight whatever ninety seven. He'll be fine. That's it that's it. Ross guess what he was Iran for one hundred twenty yards touchdown. Four balls for forty. Whatever you know you can't get away with that in this day and age and I still believe that I can compete with anyone in the fantasy industry. There's absolutely no doubt in my mind and and I've done that and competing right now actually against these guys in a startup dynasty draft that we're doing right now but these guys are better than me in terms of really truly breaking it down specifically from the data perspective. I'm not a math guy. I'm not a data guy student in math. I'm just I'm just different. I bring a different approach. I'm a little bit more of you know kind of a life experience kind of a guy and I have a good ability to bring in myriad points in terms of a player or an analysis and kind of really come to a conclusion so if I were out there right now and twenty twenty really breaking down data points things like that. It wouldn't content. Wouldn't compare to some other stuff out there so grand Barfield Scott Barrett our high end on that on that front so we have that covered. Joe Is kind of a little like me in that he's a qualitative and quantitative guy kind of puts it all together. You know as you know. Joe's very articulate speaks very well so he's got a lot going for and that's why I hired him in the first place you know he had never done a damn thing in this industry but you know I brought him in because I absolutely saw something We have our Guy Tom Brawley. Who's a little bit Kinda similar to me? In terms of being a qualitative type of guy so at the end of the day the staff represents myriad viewpoints and myriad angles and really at the end of the day. All we're trying to do is get the answers to the test and get it right. And what's fascinating about me with the data guys? I'm not a data guy you know. I'll look at numbers. Obviously and I can be impacted by them. But I'm just not a data guy but at the end of the day my analysis my picks my favorite players. They're the same as Grand Barfield and Scott Barrett. I always come to the same conclusions. I'm just not as good as these guys are in terms of breaking it down as to why and that's very critical in this day and age so I think we have again. We call a kind of a Dream Team not to mention Greg. Cosell WanNa talk about qualitative analysis. That's really my strength quantitative analysis. I mean we've got it all married together in the form of what I believe is outstanding content. There's no question Two things. I don't know Joel if I've ever told us by the way Joe you're having a great show so far. This has been my best show yet. Hey I will say this John Note. No joke and I've sent some of them the Joe still every week I will get an email. I just got one yesterday from someone that says. Ross Big Fan. Love the fancy feast. You know when you lost. Evan Evan left I was little I was a little upset but I gotTa tell you. I'm so happy Joe's awesome. It added another fantasy analyst to my repertoire like every week. I'm not just saying every week I get the same email from different people so you absolutely can see them coming. There's no question and the thing I say to people and I've said this since I'd say like three years after I retired people that aren't in the fantasy football. I've got no problem with that but what they don't understand is fantasy. Football analysts are the best analysts out. There like the amount of time that you guys put into it look. I'm friends with a lot of beat writers. They have kind of a different job. They go to the Locker Room. They watch practice. Like I'm just saying like if you really WanNa know what's going on in football and know what's happening fantasy as an industry. They run circles around the beat writers. It's not it's really not even comparable. No no Ross. I believe you work with Charlie Weis on Sirius Xm. I did a show of them for a full year. Like I did with you. Several years back you'll once a week and Initially I was like Oh boy. I don't know how this GonNa work. But by the end of the by the end of the season I mean if you ask Charlie himself like what do you think a Hansen with his knowledge he. He's pretty blown away you know. By by how deep we go in terms of understanding depth charts offensive schemes how it relates to the players and fantasy production and all that so if we can you can impress a guy like Charlie Weis four times super bowl champion. I believe four or five that he got one or one at least one with giants three with the Patriots. Of course. If you're going to press a guy like Charlie Weis who an old school dude. Yeah I think you're doing well. And at least in Charlie's mind fantasy analysts and like against them respect. I remember it. Ross going to combine as early as oh five and meeting people and tell them that was a fantasy person they they look at me like I had a second head. You know like like like what like. Yeah okay. Whatever DUDE. Fifteen years later it's like. Oh Wow you're a fancy guy that's awesome so people are starting to finally get it that you know it's really popular and people like Joe Dolan and Graham Barfield Scott Barrett myself. We're in this position. 'cause we work really hard and we know what the. Hell we're talking about yet and so here's one thing. I like about you John and everybody. I don't think a lot of people know this. You are essentially the fantasy counselor to the stars. I mean there is no chance I don't know who's on the Mount Rushmore fantasy analysts. I don't know who the quote unquote most well known guys are right now. I get it. I guess it's Matthew Berry and Evans Silva and you John. And maybe beyond no because he's on. Nfl whatever right you are the fantasy counselor to the stars that that. Maybe that should have been your websites. Fantasy points like candidacy counter the star. That's probably too long the only problem though. I'm a big suck up to Hollywood star so I always comp them subscription so I if I just had a site that we you know council the stars. I don't know if we'd make any money because I can't. I can't charges people. I just think it's so awesome that you know Jim. Cramer is reading Joe Dolan's columns for years and years and others and Paul Rudd and as Joe knows what's actually probably the most amazing thing about that is the number of MLB players current and past who are like just kind love me and love the site. I don't know what the hell it is but we just seem to have this this attraction to mlb players in Ross. I'm talking big names. I mean I'm talking cy young winners. I don't want to name names one. I want you to drop. I want you to drop some names like I know. Paul Rudd is a is a subscriber Lisa and the porn star. Like I know a bunch of your people. I don't know anybody else that has that many people like you and I gotTa tell you I love when you say that all the baseball guys play fantasy football because it's so true ignored. It reminds me of. It reminds me of every kid under the age of thirteen. The United States that plays soccer but watches football. You know what I mean like. Hey Johnny plays soccer when he's ten but like all Johnny and friends do is watch football and play fantasy football. Even though they're they're soccer players right now. I love hearing that. The baseball guys are so into their fantasy football teams. Yeah it really. It really is amazing. I was GONNA say the first name that came across my desk that I saw was in nineteen ninety eight and back then I was pretty much doing all the work for the website myself and we only had. I'm trying to think of how many subscribers we had in nineteen ninety eight. He wasn't many. It was like four thousand. Whatever so I kind of saw like every order that came down the pike and I was writing for. Espn DOT COM. Ninety eight summer ninety eight. I see an order Fred mcgriff. I'm like Oh wow the crime dog you know. I love the crime dog so I reached out to him. And I've been friends with crime dog ever since He came on the SIRIUSXM show a couple of weeks ago. He's awesome. He loves it but these guys are so competitive. That's what it is in many cases. Ross they just they just love to compete and especially the retired guys. They're you know they're out of the limelight. A little bit and they love to get involved. I did a draft on Siriusxm by the way about five years ago where I collected all these dudes and we did an MLB Sirius Xm versus MLB. Fantasy League. I mean we had. We had the crime dog in that we had Cran Griffey Junior. Guess what I beat his ass and I won the league and it was. It was fantastic because he was really competitive became on the show and he was man was competitive. So you know why these guys are great. Because they're so damn competitive. I think that's a big factor with these. Mlb dudes being so in a fantasy. I love that I love the stars that all love you and that you casually are like texting these guys. I remember one time. We had like Lisa an on the Sirius. Xm Show we were doing. And I was asking her questions about her industry that I was really interested in like testing and unionization and and like Paul Rudd Texas you. It was like Oh. You're dudes really asking her right now about if they if they have a union but like I dunno it sounds stupid but like as a former player you know you kind of understand working conditions why that matters in in that industry. I think working conditions are very important. Yeah absolutely I've actually met another celebrity type through Paul one time. Paul came on the show and a friend of his out in. La was listening and texted him. He goes oh I didn't know you know the Guru I love that guy and it was actor James Marsden. He's been in a million movies you him before for sure. Great guy and Paul's a great guy to by the way and he you know. I'm sure people know that he's a chief's Fan. I mean that is one hundred percent true like he will give up. He probably would have given up his career at this point. Because it's already been unbelievable for the chiefs to win a championship while he didn't have to do that. No Man Happier on earth. Other than maybe Andy Reid. When the chiefs one that Super Bowl then Paul Ryan? I also thought you were going to Ross touch on one of the thing that I think you got exposed to with working with me and it's that at the end of the day we are still talking about fake football here. Look I want to get it right? I want to have great analysis all that stuff. And that's why again I've surrounded myself with this. All Star cast but at the end of the day. It's fake damn football so let's have some fun right right. Ross I mean it's just so much more enjoyable when you just use humor in any way you possibly can do things with names. It annoys a small segment of people. But how many times can you say Ben Rothlisberger over over over Big Ben no large Benjamin with it you know so I do. Enjoy having fun with this in full and you know one time Ross comcast sports net. I was doing a TV show on their fantasy fix. It was called and ready for the show started. An edict came down that I had to wear a tie and you know what I told him. Have a nice life guys so you know. They backed off. That and I didn't have to wear a tie all right. So let's let's give the people a little bit of Info here and by the way Joe. You don't even know this yet but next week since it will be the final four people that we will select that sign up at fantasy points dot com using the code feast all caps that will be in the best ball ten league against you and I go next week. You and I will be doing a best ball tutorial how people should attack best ball draft best way to go about it etc but for today the last couple weeks guru. We did rookie quarterback rookie wide receivers rookie running backs. We specifically had you come on on. Rookie tight ends because number one. I didn't know if there was even that much to say and number two. I know that you can be long winded. Like Yo like myself. So here's my question for for both of you and Joe I'll start with. You are rookie tight. Ends like ever a thing are they. Are they usually a thing? I can't think of very many. Maybe like Jeremy shockey Joe. You can start on this one. Rarely Jeremy shockey was a good one back in the day. A Rob Gronkowski actually scored a bunch of touchdowns as a rookie. But it's really not something that they're for some reason it it's the position where the least impact comes as rookies I wonder if it's just because there's fewer of them. I also wonder if it's because it's such a hard position to learn because in the traditional sense. If you're going to be running if you're going to be a tight end you have to understand the run game and you have to understand the full passing game. You have to. You have to know at all because you're going to be both a blocker and receiver. Now maybe things are changing in this day and age tight ends or separated from the formation so much they're more To borrow return from guy. Greg cosell ice out to the backside of trips I if you they're doing more of those things that are more just wide receivers learning curve when it comes to tight ends. And I think that's why you often see tight end coaches. Maybe aside from a quarterbacks coaches the position coach that gets elevated the most offensive coordinator and then head coach because the tight ends have to involve the entire offense. You've got to know the full run game. And you gotTa know the full passing game in order to really break it down so It's just been traditionally harder position to learn a hard position for guys to get acclimated to and on top of that for this particular rookie class. It was not a very deep one with top heavy at all. So I mean you even look at last year. Where we're Noah Fan. Tj In the first round and even. Those guys really didn't do a whole lot. Fantasy probably shouldn't expect that this year though there are some interesting names for dynasty alright so guru whether it's dynasty or season long we got coal commit to the bears in the second round which I thought was weird. Patriots took two in the Third Devon OSCE OSCE and Dalton Keen. The packers took Guevara in the third round supposedly. They're going to use them like us. Check with the niners. I'm a little intrigued by Adam. Trautmann in the third round to the New Orleans saints then he got guys after that Harrison Bryant to Cleveland Albert O Jones how to pronounce his name to the to the broncos Parkinson seahawks Bryson Hopkins to the rams. Are Any of these guys in your mind Guru. First of all a thing for season-long this year. No no this is one of the worst tight end groups. I've seen in quite some time. It's not even all that exciting for the long term and I I agree with everything. Obviously Joe said about the position and RAW. You can appreciate it. I mean you. You need to know the passing game and you need to know the running game. You need to know a lot of them. You know in line and blocking and all that you know and as Gillibrand always says second hardest position to pick up a rookie Other than tight end now. I do love Tj Hodkinson. And I did pump him up last year as a tight end to you. Take the back into your draft fifteenth round. Because I truly believe. He's an absolute stud after one game. I was like yeah and then he went away. And you know for about three months so It's rare that the rookies get a dog. But you you did. Bring up a good name. Their Jeremy shockey. He was pretty good as a rookie But this year's class is bad. Trautmann for the New Orleans. Saints obviously is very athletic and Jared. Cook is obviously well over thirty. So he's a great stash. Guy Sean. Payton is not going anywhere so trotman has a real chance to be highly impactful. Aussie Aussie is a guy that I heard a lot about the combat. He wasn't a name that people were talking abou in terms of like top five at the position but I was not shocked at all when he was a second titantic end off the board just from conversations. I had with people at the combine scouts and alike kind of like him. You know complete player. I interviewed him. He's a nice kid. He takes a lot of pride in his blocking it. A huge game against USC in a rivalry game so showed up in big spots. I think he's got a chance but he's got competition in Dalton Kane and you just never know what the Patriots. He's got a shot. I think my favorite is Harrison Bryant at Florida Atlantic and Charlie Weis speaking of him. His son coached him last year. And Charlie sent me a text unsolicited said. Hey pump up Harrison Brian. I'm like all right and then I looked at the tape and I'm like wow. This guy's yeah like him. He seems like a complete player. I know that you've got open. The esteem a little bit but I like him quite a bit. I think he's a better prospect overall than a awesome. Hooper was obviously there. It will likely be Gone Albert play. What your lock Missouri. But we have no offense there so I do like Albert. Oh yeah overall. I think it's those three guys really stand out to me for Dynasty Leagues and the long-term at the tight end position. What about for your Joe on the dynasty end of it? Who Did you? Who Do you like? Well my top guys Trautmann and the reason Trautmann's my top guy is because is very productive in college. But I thought it was very intriguing that the saints essentially made a mini Ricky Williams trade to trade up for him. They traded into the back end of round three and they used their entire day three hall to make the deal. They traded their fourth fifth. Sixth and seventh round picks to move into third round to draft Adam. Trautmann and I think Trautmann Look I. I don't think he's going to be great as a rookie. But Jared Cook has no guaranteed money on his contract after the season. He's thirty three years old. I think this is pick for the future for the New Orleans Saints so Peyton call him a true kind of a traditional tight end in line blocker. Get down the seem. I think that's fascinating as well. But the guy that I've really become entry interested in in the last couple of weeks and arguably the guy who I think might have the best chance to like produces a rookie is nas from New England. I I just think it's so hilarious. That Bill Belichick. He's the he didn't draft a tight end in last year's his every every year. We have a historically great something but last year was a great tight end class and everybody thought it was a guarantee the patriots drafting one because Gronk had just retired a quote unquote retired and he didn't draft one. This year redrafts two in the third round including Dalton keen. Who's going to be more of a fullback so I think I think those guys are really interesting to me. Aussie Aussie might actually have the best shot. Maybe outside of coal committed to contribute as a rookie but in terms of rookie production. It is not a great class. And while you and John were talking I went and looked up a all. The rookie seasons by tight ends in NFL history. Because I knew I there was one or two. I was missing recently. That were pretty good but ebony ingram in two thousand seventeen had seven hundred twenty two receiving yards as a rookie. That is sixth. Best of all time. Jeremy shockey who we already mentioned on the podcast. Eight hundred ninety four yards second best of all time as a rookie. The Best of all time you have to go all the way back to nineteen sixty one. Mike Ditka had a thousand and seventy six receiving yards and twelve touchdowns that is by far the best rookie season for a tight end in. Nfl history. And that is that what fifty nine almost sixty years ago. A Jeremy shockey had the second-best only one tight end in. Nfl history has gone over a thousand yards in his rookie season. It is just not a position that contributes early. I mean even since the year two thousand we have very few guys even over six hundred yards since two thousand. Only Jeremy. Shockey Evan Ingram and John. Carlson have gone over six hundred receiving yards as a rookie noah. Fant who we just got done talking about You know we made some plays. But he wasn't great as a rookie. He had five hundred sixty two receiving yards that is nineteenth most all time so it just goes to show you that even the guy who had the nineteenth most receiving yards as a rookie tight end in NFL history. We're talking a hundred seasons. He didn't really do much for fantasy so I just would not anticipate these guys being particularly productive as we as we talk about this season if any of them top five hundred yards. It would be beating yachts. Wow that that I'm glad you look that up dead. You know. People don't know this but that he was he was he was Hanson's tight and one that year speaking of John John Dick has titan one year. I did I actually to Ross. It was too but I was behind like the John mackey but did guy coached in nineteen ninety eight. Actually one of the better rookie seasons ever logged by tight end. Let's call it the modern fantasy our last forty years. Remember Cam Cleland yes. It fifty four catches for six eighty four and six touchdowns in one thousand nine hundred. And we're like Oh my God. Wow that was actually a very good year even then and probably still now for rookie tight end. Of course. He didn't really do much after that seventh all time. Yep Wow. Here's my last question for you guys. This actually comes from a listener. Joe Roz now ski? I think he actually signed up. Fantasy points use the code. Feast all cap so you can ask questions if you do that too. He had a specific question about Bryson Hopkins. Who is our Buddy Brad Hopkins son? Yeah worth round. The Rams and his question was basically. Why did the rams take him when they have Everett and hey baby and I guess looking at it? I think they gave me a new deal. My guess is maybe they'll let Everett walk after this year because this is the fourth year of his deal. But that's my guess I don't expect Hopkins to like play over either one of those guys to you know no in fact last year before Tyler higby broke out. I thought the Rams Shoulda traded him because they weren't using him and I loved him as a prospect. My Guy Adam Kaplan inform me of him at the that year going into the draft from the probably senior bowl or something like that and I was like wow I looked up and I'm like damn this guy moves really well. I wouldn't be surprised guys if Hopkins Pans out pretty good prospect. Maybe the rams trade Gerald ever in season I agree I think could be. I think he could be a trade target Also obviously hig going nowhere. They extended him. And this is just the Rams Kinda building for the future and you know what's interesting strange draft. They drafted for like flexibility on offense. They spent second round picks on both running back and wide receiver. They drafted camakers who we talked about. Ross and also they drafted the Van Jefferson Wide Receiver. A by the way also the son of an NFL player. Van Jefferson Shawn's Jefferson's kid and Bryson Hopkins's Brad Hopkins. Kid Hopkins can really move four six six to forty five. The one problem that I saw with him hands really inconsistent. I made some spectacular catches but I think he had some concentration drops and that's probably why fell to the fourth round. But he's a good prospect and I just think this means whether Everett's traded or he walks after this year I think Hopkins is going to be the number two tight end behind Tyler higby and twenty twenty one guru. I really appreciate you coming on. I'm so glad you started a new site and didn't elect to just hang out on the Jersey shore in retirement instead.

The fantasy fees eating bug casler two of the show. That's so nice. We do it twice each and every week to get you ready to set your fantasy football lineups or your dfs lineups. Maybe just appreciate the analysis from my guy joe dolan every week. I'm ross tucker former nfl offensive. Linemen bunch different podcasts. Bunch of media gags do this show twice a week at rostock ballots where you can find me. Twitter facebook instagram even youtube dot com slash. Ross tucker nfl all of our shows are posted at ross tucker pine and that's where you can see the highlight clips of the other shows or you to youtube dot com slash. Ross tucker. Nfl he is joe dolan. He is my friend. He's a friendly guy at f. g. Underscore dolan here. I'd like to do. I'd like you to go to fantasy. Points dot com. I like it used the code. Feast and there's two reasons for it number one to support joe and his new business during pandemic not exactly ideal diana. Start a new business. He deserves it. He's worth it and more importantly forget joe it's ridiculous value price it out against the other competitors the other sites that are out there. It's really not even close. You get like twice the information at least for half the money. I mean you play fantasy. 'cause you think you understand value. How's that morale you how you like them. Apples twice the content half the price fantasy points that com code beast. Joe you can use it you can steal from you on twenty four dead twice the content toys the insight half the price love it. I really liked that rossi. It's like you're good at. It's like you do this for a living or something do Talking yeah that's really nice. I like that all right. Let's go raiders chargers just urban really good they just lose games and the raiders impressed how they were able to grind out a win. What what do you think of his fantasy matchup while they really did grind out a win really back conditions. Josh jacobs thirty one carries so. I guess we could say he's a he's you can obviously say he's healthy at this point. I kinda throw out last week. With the raiders passing game because of the conditions in cleveland. It was so windy. I think henry ruggs nelson agholor kind of wide receiver threes. Darren waller remains a tight end a tight end one yet. It's just it was just a tough game last week. For the raiders. Their car throwing for just one hundred twelve yards. The wind was so bad. But obviously josh jacobs is your guy at thirty one carries last week shows you how much confidence they happened to him. Right now what about. What about on the other side. Well the chargers it's unbelievable. They clearly have their franchise quarterback and they still can't find ways to stop chartering. It is utterly incredible Keep an eye on the backfield. Though justin jackson has taken over but also they have this guy. Troy main pope got dinged up. I think he's going to be okay. He passed the concussion protocol and iran harder than joshua kelley did. So i think justin jackson right now is far ahead of joshua kelley in this backfield and is an rb two while kelly is probably on your bench. Herbert who's in your lineup. As our mike williams and keenan allen. I can't believe it's unbelievable. All the guys who are on the scene or scoring touchdowns For them a donald parham last week. Gabe neighbors or a touchdown and hunter. Henry can't get in the end zone. It's unbelievable but but yeah it's It's certainly hunter. Henry is a guy you have to play at this point with guys. Like kittle injured. You kind of have to suck it up. He's just been snake. Bit in the touchdown department. Let's get to steelers cowboys. Ilk pittsburgh going into really bad defense somehow got for turnover. The eagles your thoughts on who in particular they will ride in this game I think i think it's going to be james conner but i would start ju- johnson. I know diontae. Johnson was so frustrating. Last week catching just one pass. But dallas defense is bad if carson wentz didn't play like he was actively trying to turn the football over the numbers have been way worse in that game for dallas defense. You just play. Everybody from pittsburgh including eric ebron. You can play 'em as well again talking about that tight end position somebody you can pick up. Maybe was out there on the waiver. Wire if you lost george kittle. This is an across the board. Start for the pittsburgh offense cowboys. Going into the steelers defense. It sounds like garrett gilbert or cooper rush will be the starter. They gave the nuccio one week. Spin best joe. I don't know what's going on here. I mean this offense. It's terrible. I mean the only guy i feel anyway. Decent about is zeke. elliot. And i don't even feel great about him. The offense is so bad. This is such a bad match up. i'm regular i'm relegating. Cooper lamb and gallup all too wide receiver threes at best. Wow that's interesting okay. What about miami in arizona exit before we get to my zona. We know that times are not good for the dallas cowboys show. We know that are for some of you. And i'm being serious here. Times are not good and maybe you have a lot of credit card debt. No shame in that happens to the best of us. The average interest rate on credit card debt is over eighteen percent. Apr have you looked at your interest rate lately. Here's the deal okay.

Apply offers to change without notice visit light stream dot com slash fees. For more information. I want more information from you. Joe dolan and what. More information as it relates to to time and the dolphins against the arizona cardinals to light up the place joe now. Here's here's the deal. She didn't need to light up the place now. He didn't look comfortable at the beginning of that game last week. But he didn't need the light it. Up because jared goff during the ball over four times. The defense got in the end zone. And the specialties. Got the end zone with your team grant on a punt return so it turns out actually looked this up. They had more than they had fewer than one. Hundred and fifty yards from scrimmage. They were the first team the miami dolphins last week against the rams to win a game by ten or more points while gaining and fifty or fewer yards from scrimmage since the rex grossman lead bears in two thousand six in grossman. In that game. It was against the minnesota for three interceptions and had thirty four yards passing. So i mean it just shows you just how rare that is what they did. They cannot win like that going forward but obviously very obviously bryant floor is is a good coach and he's very good defensive coach before miami. There's really only one guy i feel anyway. Decent about for fancy. That's devante parker. He had one catch last week. It happened to go for a touchdown but he is a the to what is has downgraded this offense across the board for me. And that's not a knock onto it. It's just that we know how ryan fitzpatrick place. And that's and that's what's going on there so across the board to has not offense down for me and on top of that myles. Gaskin has a sprained. mc l. So he's going to be out. Matt brita were recording. This on on wednesday did not practice today so we could be looking at jordan howard in the backfield not exactly inspiring offense for the miami dolphins. No it's not what about arizona going into good miami defense off the bye chase edmonds. Let's let's check kenyan drake status but chase edmonds would be an rb one. If kenyan drake doesn't go and then also cuyler murray deondraye hopkins christian kirk. Play these guys each and every week at this point. They are cooking on offense. Eyler is the quarterback lawn. The next game. Joe is going to be our focused game for draft kings purposes. It is the saints. It is the bucks now. I know the bucks have good defense. But it still feels like there's a bunch of guys that you might want to consider your lineup. I guess there's uncertainty. You got to tell me about how much we'll see antonio brown. We'll see michael thomas. is he back. I mean this is their value for draftkings. Dfs in some of these guys. I don't even know. How antonio brown and michael thomas would be priced. Obviously as a matter of fact i can. I can just look at it up for you right now. Ross i'm gonna. I'm gonna take a look at the prices year for antonio brown and michael thomas while while you while we talk about this game but obviously. The buccaneers defense is very strong. Though i was surprised how easily the giants ran on them. A given how amazing that run defense has been So obviously you're playing alvin. Kamara almond cameras. The number one overall fantasy player. So you're playing him. He's on track to break christian mccaffrey's record for running back receptions in a season by ten receptions so that shows you how incredible he's been playing a. Let's hold on. Let me get more up. I wanna mention that right now. The total at draftkings is fifty one and a half the over under and the bucks are still abor by five points. I took this needs in the points on even money. Pi cast when they were getting five and a half more. People have been bet on the saint down to five now that. The buccaneers our favored so not a crazy boring game. But you know the thing like twenty seven twenty. Four range okay. so michael. Commerce is sixty Sixty nine hundred on draftkings. Antonio brown's fifty five hundred so you're not getting much of a discount with either one of these guys. It's obvious though that the saints don't have anything at wide receiver they trust outside of michael. Thomas margaret's alloway was out last week so there was a lot about their injury report. We don't know. But obviously if michael thomas plays you have to put him in your lineup. They miss him. What about on the bucks on the other side for the blocks ronald jones is now kind of an rb three. He fumbled last week. They bench them so leonard. Fournette is the more Is is the safer play in that backfield and the question becomes for the box. Mike evans has averaged over. Twenty fantasy. points. A game. This year when chris godwin he's out. He's average under eight fantasy points per game when curious godman is in. Is chris godwin with that finger. Injury gonna play and on top of all of that. Antonio brown's going to have some sort of role. Bruce arians instead. So i think brown's a wide receiver three i think evans is a wide receiver to and i would not down a wide receiver. Three of chris. Godwin place. got it okay last. But certainly not. What about antonio brown joe by a wide receiver three this week. Low end understand. It could be it could be six catches. It could be three catches. But tom brady did feed antonio brown in their one game together with the patriots last year. About a taft. Dfs for oneal. He's fifty five hundred. So there's no discount here which i think is probably i mean he's cheaper than michael thomas quite a bit. The question is how many how many people are going to be willing to play him coming off. This extended rest at at a price. Which isn't a massive discount. Compared to some other guys. I would actually think. That's going to suppress his ownership a little bit. Got it okay fair enough. Finally patriots jets monday night. Yeah i mean are there. Any guys should be abandoned. She lineup for anyone in is giving. Here's the problem jamison. Crowder would be one of the guys. I'm okay with but you have to wait 'til monday. James white is a guy in the patriots. Backfield who he's game with nine targets and games the two targets. You can't trust them. Damian harris has had big games and and and and tiny. You can't trust them. I guess the one guy from new england who you might be able to consider if you're desperate wide receiver is jakobi meyers. Who has consistently outplayed. Kill harry but ross. I mean. I know it's going to sound like cutting us off early. This game is a wasteland for fantasy. Yeah i mean we know about the jets. Unfortunately you went through the patriots. So that'll do it. That was that was what they call a narrow fantasy match up to discuss. I did have one question for you. Jail i win.

Joe Dolan's Top 2021 Rookie RBs for Fantasy Football

"It's time to eat four. Sit down and get ready to consuming abundance of fantasy football knowledge from ross tucker and joe dolan me now on the fantasy. Feast eight and podcast. Yeah let's see maybe it is the fantasy feast eating podcasts presented by draft gangs. I'm ross tucker former. Nfl player five teams. Seven years. those of you. They catch us on youtube. Youtube dot com slash. Ross tucker. Nfl can see some of the helmets and the game balls. You can also check out all of our other shows and even if you just want you got the highlight clips. The best of the best from those other shows go head over the aforementioned youtube page. You can always hit me up on social. At ross tucker. Nfl or the podcast network at ross. Tucker pod. I am downright giddy and excited for today's show. Last week i loved hearing where joe dolan the number one ranked fantasy analysts according to fantasy prose over the last five years i love hearing where he has. These rookies ranked whether it was trae. Lance or justin fields are kyle pits. As we talked about the quarterbacks and the tight end probably joe gonna do two weeks a wide receivers because there's going to be a lot of wide receivers and your rankings. I will say. I thought it was interesting. Joe there were some people on social media and joe's at f- underscored dolan the fantasy gangster. There's some people that really disagree with you. Which i thought was interesting because some people thought land should be higher and other people said. There's no way he's above golf. So i i guess if you've got people criticizing you both ways that you're probably in a good spot. Well ross when it when it comes to those rookie quarterbacks and obviously we're talking running backs today so don't wanna get into that too much. But i don't mind the disagreement at all. The fact of the matter is a and and i think i said it on the podcast last week if trae lance start fifteen games that rankings can look stupid low if trainline starts three games. It's gonna look stupid high so you have to try to balance a get in between And see see what kind of risks you're taking on if you're drafting in may which is what we're doing right now. We're doing best ball drafts. This is this is where these guys were going. You know. i ranked justin feels like six spots higher than trae. Lance and the reason is i think jimmy garoppolo is more likely to hold off trae lance for a time than i think. Andy dalton is to hold off dustin fields. That's not a slight against trae. Lance obviously the forty niners like the. That's why they drafted him at number three overall and i probably told the they were to come out and say john lynch shanahan trae lances are star week one evolves up the rankings. It's just a matter of measuring that risk and trying to mitigate it as we in a very uncertain time right now in may to grill good point nobody knows and so two fault you for your ranking is illogical unless anyone knows exactly how many games those two young men are going to play. You know now if you said. They're going to play six seventeen games both of them and then people disagree with your rankings. That's fine but right now. What are you really disagreeing with would be my point. You should check out. Joe by the way not only at f. g. underscore dolan the fantasy gangsta but over at fantasy. Points dot com. If you listen to today's ross tucker football podcast with greg cosell telling you why you should just draft tibo in the first round of drafts. Now what he said by the way you know. His draft pile profiles are over. Fancy points dot com. Just make sure you use the code. Twenty-one fees and actually several you've done this sometimes i'll even forward it to joe dolan but gotten several people last few weeks have signed up at fancy points dot com use code. Twenty-one feast which is awesome. Let's dive into the running backs. Joe it's important on a lot of different levels and we'll start with naji harris. Really curious you know. I feel like there are years where people sort of overvalue the rookies. Joe the yeah a little bit too excited about the rookie fits and then. There's people who are like well. You're always gonna get somebody when you rank a rookie high As i did with clyde edwards life here didn't work out all that great or our as i did. Was they want barkley a couple years ago and it did work out great. You're always gonna get somebody who's gonna tell you. Oh roku them you know that that's meaningless. That's meaningless criticism to me. I mean look at last year was edwards helaire. Great nell but jonathan taylor. Was the league winner. Jonathan taylor got off to slow. Start ended up winning people leaks cam. Akers got off to a slow start ended up winning people leagues and yet keep in mind. These guys didn't have an off season. So when you measure it when you measuring in that regard i actually think it was a good year for rookie running back last year. I'm not sure it's going to be that good a year this year. That means that. I love clyde edwards helaire last year. I'll take an l. on it. I was drafting him. The late i kind of early to mid second round wherever he fell drafting him again this year at his depressed price. That's that that's a conversation for another day. But as good as i felt about clyde edwards helaire last year i had to acknowledge. There were some landmines. Damian williams opted out. Okay that one that one. I thought really cleared the path. Formed wasn't necessarily necessarily gays. Daryl williams comes along they sign lady on bell. Unfortunately he wasn't able to navigate all of those and he had a mediocre rookie season. No such land mines exist for najera if you want to draft generis in redraft you have. You're going to have to use the top fifteen or sixteen pick. It is going to be the case by the time summer. Winds winds down there. There was some best ball towns where he was going in the third round his. Adp with a little bit depressed because of a all the because of all the drafts that were done before the nfl draft. It's not the case anymore. Najji harris will be in that high second round. Wait first round kind of range and when you look at the situation you it makes sense. Yes the offensive line is a problem but i mean it varies a clear path to three hundred touches for a rookie running back. It belongs to najji harris. Benny snell anthony. Mcfarland aren't going to be stealing fifty percents of the snaps in that backfield. It's not going to happen. The steelers wanted a bell cow. They gotta belco harrison's better receiver than people think he is. I think he's going to average fifteen to eighteen carries for game. He's going to get three or four targets per game. He is going to produce at a very high level because volume is king. When it comes to running back currently najji harrison or be eleven That and frankly. I think you can argue that. That is low. I have them right behind. Cam akers the andre swift and swift thing with dan campbell and eat kneecaps and signing jamaal williams. Landmines deondraye swift. That don't exist for najji aris. I think you can make an easy argument. That he's a top ten running back for fantasy and you can make an easy argument that he's a first round. Pick for fencing. Yeah i mean. I tend to agree with you. Plus you know the thing i would add to. That is route. This burger looks to me like he likes throwing short. He likes the check down. He likes getting rid of the rock. Which i think bodes well for harris as well. I don't picture big ben. you know. Chuck in deep all the time. Joe i i don't want to hit these guys underneath. Okay next up Is i'm assuming you've got harris running back eleven. I'm assuming actually. I don't want to put words in your mouth. Who do you have is your next highest rookie. Running back rating is it. Each yen is john williams and denver. Or is even michael carter with the jets key devante williams or back to back twenty five twenty six. Ecn the thing about eighteen. That's top is urban. Meyer complete wild card and you know. I think there's a lot of people who are going to argue that urban meyer isn't very sharp because he just signed tim tebow and i. I can't believe that he got the opportunity. But whatever i mean. We'll we'll let the let the espn heartache. Guard is really break that one down wire drowsy. T n really bizarre comment The oh my god. It broke my heart at canarias. Tony wasn't very it trevor. Cpi thanks coach like are dumping a great example of a of an inexperienced guy. Who doesn't understand like you don't say that there's no to saying that all you do is talk about how thrilled you are about the guy you got. Yes so i mean you're you're already telling tragedy theon that he wasn't your first choice publicly saying that and then the interesting part about that is that meyer comes out and says oh we think he's our third down back. I don't bow on a by that by the way But you do have to keep in mind. Urban meyer is new to this urban. This is you know i know. The pittsburgh steelers drafting najji harrison. The first round to give twenty five percent of the snaps and only play them on on passing downs. Why do i know that. A number one. Because kevin colbert when draft running back in the first round. If you didn't plan on running into the ground and number two. Mike tomlin has an extensive history of riding belco running backs so that's an easy projection for najji harris urban. Meyer's wildcard ear. So he comes out and says hey number one. I didn't really want travis yen with this pick. I wanna canarias tony number two. He says oh he's going to be a third down back number. Three one canaries. Tony at that pick suggest the did did he want kind of gadji player. Who's going to run. Jet sweeps and fly sweeps. And you know be able to put him in the backfield flex him outside. Use of as of weapon is that his plan with travis e. t. n. Was that his plan to say all right. We have this thousand yard back. James robinson we have my old college running back carlos hyde because when obviously just like chip kelly when these guys come into the nfl. They've gotta bring all their old toys from college and we're gonna use those two. Is our main running backs. But travis each yen. I think he's gonna be you know kind of a gadget type of player. He is a really difficult projection. Now i'm using history trent. He's been in the league. You draft a running back in the first round. Your plan has to be to use them. So that's why didn't drop travis t. n. Out of the low end rb to high end rb three range. But i do think there is a tough projection to be made here for each yen. I think he could catch fifty passes. But how many carries is he gonna get. That's a valid question ross And i think devante williams is an easier projection. I think it's entirely possible. John williams rookie season. Looks a lot like Cam akers rookie season he. Jonathan taylor is rookie season when they get off to a little bit of a slow start. Melvin gordon there. He's the veteran running back. He can catch the ball. So you know he's gonna play on third downs. But i could see williams really taking over by mid season Devante williams to me is a much more appealing. Best ball pick at this stage because obviously with best ball you could sit on your roster and when he breaks out midway through the season he ends up in your lineup in redraft. It's possible that you're sitting on devante williams and he only has a part time role for the first six to eight weeks of the season. That could be a little bit annoying but also keep this in mind. There's one extra game this season so most fantasy leagues i would venture to guess I'm not one hundred percent. Sure of this but i think most fantasy leagues are gonna extend week seventeen this year as opposed to ending in week. Sixteen with that one. Extra game rookies have one more opportunity if they get off to a slow start to contribute to your fantasy team so some of those guys like devante williams with whom it might take some time for him to supplant. Melvin gordon it. Could it could end up paying off down the road With with a little bit more alacrity than Than some rookies in the past. But that's interesting joe. I hadn't thought of that. Look we're always looking for a small tiny edge and that's a small tiny edge. Potentially steve talks about on the even money. Podcast all the time. I do think you're williams. Thought is interesting because man you sit here and you think if feel that. They like melvin gordon to think that they'll that jovanotti will become the cam akers or the jonathan taylor of the broncos. Man that feels like gordon will be totally pushed aside. Because that's kind of what happened with the rams and the colts well and part of that was marlon. Mack got hurt again. That's that's just something that you couldn't project. You can predict. Melvin gordon by the way the dui charges got dropped but i guess he could still face nfl discipline. Keep that in. Mind when it comes to melvin gordon which could give devante williams had up at the beginning of the season but also the broncos. We're not holding the melvin gordon. But you'd be on this season. So i think john williams is somebody who's going to have a role later on in the season if not significant one. What about michael carter for the jets. I'm very curious about this one because it feels like there's a pretty good path there for him. Yeah and it's because they have a bunch of a bunch of guys in that backfield Who i guess if you were to project today they signed tevin coleman and i would think tevin coleman is going to. I guess open camp as their starting running back up. Because he's familiar with the leflore system from their time together in san francisco but tevin coleman been held together by duct tape for the last three years so it. I don't think you expect. Tevin coleman going to last very long. Michael ryan is kind of a plotter. He's not a great bit in that offense. Tie johnson's interesting but again. Not somebody that. That team is beholden to so michael carter even though he was a fourth round pick and that's the thing that makes him difficult project because right now i have them as an rb three. I haven't in the thirties at running back. And that's difficult to do for fourth round pick because as as much as a fourth round pick can contribute for fantasy. That is day three pick so you look at the opportunity and you say oh my goodness like there is this great chance that michael carter emerges here but he's still have day three pick now. The jets were saying all right things about him. Oh my god. I can't believe he was there They thought he was a day. Two pick all the way. They're picking at the top of round four and they're giddy on friday night heading into saturday knowing that they're going to have a shot to draft. Michael carter so they're all excited they're like i can't believe he's there. And so maybe the jets had a day to great on them and at the jets drafted him in day to. We'd be like the moon baby. Let's go michael carter. The opportunity is here from michael. Carr like just imagine if travis deanna we just talked about landed in with the jets. I mean e be in competition with nausea harris for rookie. Rb one if he landed in that spot. This is an great spot for michael carter. The only thing that's lacking draft capital but also keep in mind. This is a guy who was a great receiver in college. I think i think greg cosell said he kind of reminded him of clyde edwards layer coming out of lsu with his body type his skill set and as our guy scott barrett has has produced the research. A target is worth two and a half times as much as a carry for running backs. Npr michael carter is going to catch passes out of the backfield. There is a lot to like about him. The only thing that he is lacking is that draft capital which is which is actually extremely predicted for running back. Strap capital is very predictive because teams give those guys opportunities but michael carter should have a chance to come in and training camp in press right away and earn himself a big time roll rate from the outset. Yeah i mean he's got to be in about as good of a spot for a fourth round rookie running back. I think i've ever seen i mean it's good. It's pretty unbelievable. What about a couple of former oklahoma sooner running backs trace term sermon went in the third round of the niners seemingly have like ten running backs show in rome andrei stevenson went in the fourth round of the patriots. It was interesting. Emory hunt on the college draft. Podcast talked about stevenson and competitive Garrett blunt big man with nice feet where you have either one of those guys ranked notably Sermon is rb forty five. Only because like you love that situation right. Ross i mean that san francisco running offense and they taking guys from the dumpster heap. Bu- i don't mean that as an insult to re most jeff wilson but just like they've taken guys from late rounds and undrafted ranks and these guys have produced at pro bowl kind of level. Jeff wilson was a league winner last year. But that also poses a problem for trae sermon because those guys are still there. Jeff wilson is still there of routine most or their with san francisco. They also drafted alive mitchell. I believe in the six round. Who's a really interesting rookie. They signed wing. Goldman this offseason so there is a lot. A lot of roadblocks here portray sermon. But if you look at the fact that he's a third round pick which is very good draft capital for a running back. And he's in that rushing offense with the chance that trade Trae lance takes over at some point is the quarterback really opens up that run game. There is a lot to like about trade sermon. The problem is you might be waiting a long time for trade sermon to get onto the field. So that that's my issue with him but the upside is all there. It's a great landing spot from an offensive standpoint. It's just not a great landing spot from a personnel standpoint because he has got to leapfrog a lot of guys in that backfield to get on the field. So just keep that in mind when it comes to ramachandra evenson. We don't even have him projected in our top eighty running backs advantage points. I'm by the way our projections are up this week. Raw is you might be interested in that. He's not projected in our top eighty running backs and the reason being a look. I mean the patriots are a team that two years ago drafted damian harris in the third round. And then just basically redshirt like. I thought that was incredible. That they would take a running back in the third round and does not even play him but they did that so that you have the land mines here for andre stevenson as well Sony michelle still there. Harris is still there. Harris had a really underrated season last year is just their offense with so freaking bad that He didn't really do much for fantasy. Because cam newton stole all the rushing touchdowns a james white is still there out of the backfield so the way i look at it right now. Reminder stevenson's number four on the depth chart entering season and brandon bolden. Still there and. He's he's a special team sky so remark stevenson might not be be even be active on game days at the start of the season but if michelle who's had an extensive injury history were go down then you start looking at him as a potential waiver. Wire guy down the line and if you're doing a a massive Best paul draft or obviously a dynasty draft. There's a lot to like about monitoring stevenson in with that team. You just have to understand. I mean he might not even touch the ball this year. So that there's there's that problem with projecting him for dynasty vis-a-vis projecting him for seasonal. so what about. There's two more guys. I wanted to ask you about because i'm i'm wondering if they're if they're ranked for you or not and that is kenny gain. Well who. I am still surprise. Didn't go until the fifth round to the philadelphia eagles but they did get kerryon johnson this week as well so some curious if gain well crack your top eighty and then juba harbor from oklahoma state going to carolina in the fourth round. Joe well to. Let's start there. Because i'm the only thing the only value for him would be. He's the handcuff for christian. Mccaffrey and you presume that he's going to be. He's going to be the top guy behind christian. Mccaffrey member they lost. Mike davis who was a huge winner by the way of of the nfl draft with atlanta's not taking running back. But the only other guys behind christian mccaffrey there that you might have heard of or trenton annan and reggie johnathon and i think they have rodney smith there as well rod smith. But there's really not a whole lot behind christian mccaffrey. So schubert with that fourth round draft capital. He's a handcuff there. He's not going to get on the field. Otherwise because you know. I mean christian mccaffrey's gonna play seventy five eighty ninety percent of the snaps but other than that he could contribute to christian. Mccaffrey goes down again when it comes to kenny gain. Well i love the pick for philadelphia. I did not like the pick for fantasy because this is somebody who we were hoping would land spot like miami or or even the jets who ended up taking michael carter and having a spot where he could get on. The field contribute immediately. I think philly's going to use them right away but the only problem for fantasy is it's gonna take targets away for miles. Sanders and kenny game is probably not going to get enough touches to have a significant fantasy role himself gain. Well is our rb fifty eight because of that receiving ability but then the kerryon johnson land-mine kerryon johnson the now first foremost the eagles picked him up off of waivers. He's not even guaranteed to make the team. So i don't want to freak out too much. But what is carry on. Johnson do well he blocks and he can catch the ball. He's a plotter but it's one of those things where like third and short he could be in the game for philadelphia which hurts both miles sanders and candy gain. Well right now. I mean miles. Sanders was a big loser of the last week. Only because first and foremost he's a good receiver but had a bad year in that department last year. So you have to wonder. Alright is is. Nick serianni gonna come in here and say mas sanders is good receiver. Kenny gain well as naim hinds kind of guy. You already made that comparison that could be a significant role that takes away from miles sanders. And you know down the line. Maybe kenny gain well can contribute independent of miles sanders and they can both contribute independent of each other. We saw that in india last year with jonathan taylor and ninety nine. I just don't expect that that's going to happen. Are joe so we've got jumar jefferson. Larry roundtree khalil. Herbert kylian hill. Chris evans kenna in guam goo jake funk. These are the other rookie running backs. That got drafted are any of them in the top eighty guessing. No well jake. Funk is number one on my spooner ism post draft projections because his spooner. Ism is fantastic. Ross you know what it's spooner resum is right. No you're like you're spooner is is toss rucker junk so he could be a man scape the he could. He could be a man skates kinda guy. He's got a great spooner resum He's a super freak athlete. But there again. That's that's somebody who in that backfield. I think the rams the rams did a they just drafted a bunch of like freak athletes jacob harris the wide receiver tight end data. Ucf jake funk. Chris evans is another really good athlete. But again buried on the depth chart. Kennon wong i. I pride myself on on pronunciations and his very difficult for me. So can i can wong woo at iowa. State absolute freak athlete. The problem is buried on the depth chart. He's kind of a replacement for mike boone. In minnesota who was also freak athlete he went to denver in the off season. And i think minnesota just prides themselves on drafting these really good athletes who can play special teams. So he's interesting Tomorrow jefferson's kind of the plotting a replacement for kerryon johnson in detroit. So he's there in the rb seventy range for me Larry roundtree with with the chargers is interesting. Because you know austin or is not going to get two hundred and fifty carries and who do they trust to get carries in that backfield. Just a justin jackson is talented. But he's always injured and last year joshua kelley the rookie running back out of ucla had a miserable season. The average like he was one of the least efficient running backs in the entire. Nfl if not the least. I actually feel like lowry rowntree. No nonsense kind of runner. You know exactly what you're getting with. Rowntree he's not big but he's a he's a grinding type of guy. I wonder with that new staff with the chargers. If they're like dude this kelly he was terrible last year. We've got to get somebody to fill that role. Larry rowntree is going to be the guy who actually ends up carving out a role here for the chargers in that no nonsense role. He's my rb sixty six. So i'm i'm not saying like oh my god he's he's gonna come out here and he's going to get one hundred seventy five carries and he's gonna compliment austin ekeler but he's the guy look at to say you know what he might have a shot to get on the bill from day. One last thing i wanted to ask you about joe. Obviously today is. Nfl schedule release day. Pretty cool by the way draft. Kings has the nfl schedule. Release free to play pool on either go to draft kings dot com on the draft draftkings app. Always use the code. Ross when you that by the way but you don't betting thing it's free to play five thousand dollars in total prize up for grabs. You just go ahead. You answer a couple of questions about the nfl scheduled release. I love stuff like that already over. Twenty five thousand entrance by the way we are a fantasy show joe thirty minutes on demand audio every week. Keeping up today what you need to know fantasy purposes the next couple weeks. We'll get into wide receivers. What if anything do we need to know or look at when it comes to the schedule in other words will you change any of your rankings tomorrow. Joe based on the schedule coming out or is it totally irrelevant. It's close to a relevant for me. I think the one thing that people are going to look at is fantasy playoffs schedule. Like what is that last month of the season. Look like Is this a guy. Like for instance jeff williams. We just talked about. Oh he might be somebody who's going to help get you over the hurdle into the fantasy playoffs. If his second half of the season looks pretty good the maybe above them up a little bit mentally but the only thing i really use it for is looking at by weeks further for the little drafted players in best ball like quarterbacks away you're only going to draft humor three tight ends when you're only going to draft two or three if you if you're in best ball redraft team defense where you're only going to draft two or three. That's really all. I look at by weeks to mir a tiebreaker. They're not they're not something where i'm i'm actively using them to make rankings. But for instance. If i have matthew stafford and matt ryan rated similarly and my starting quarterback is russell wilson and i wanna take a second quarterback and russell wasn't as a same by week as matt ryan. I'm probably going to take matthew stafford. That that's the way i use. I use by weeks but with the schedule released. Ross it's fun. I love looking at all the prime time matchups but it to me. It's not something that is going to significantly adjust my rankings. Got it well. That was going to be my question. Nats what i was curious about. I look listen. Here's the deal. Make sure you check out. Joe on twitter at f. g. underscored dolan because he's the bomb and go to fantasy points dot com or they've got all these guys. Graham barfield scott barrett.

Tucker pod really appreciate those of you that re tweet and like when we post about the podcast on the various social media platforms part. One of course was all about the thursday night and the sunday. One o'clock games part to. It's the sunday late game so nighter and the monday night or joe we shall start with the jets and the chargers are buddy our producer. Brian neal will be there jets charges. Hey usually you just dismissed the jets. But after that last monday night game with flacco the receivers are you going to dismiss them or is it something to talk about. I mean there's still something to talk about sean param. Hey finally paying off for some of the best ball shares that we have gone down the field. The chargers have been gettable on the back end. Jamison crowder obviously has been kind of a wide receiver three of with some wide receiver to upside depending on targets he gets. Let's check on the status of sam darnold but joe flacco distributed the ball pretty well in that game and i think you can take a shot on the michael ryan in the backfield is kind of a flex option. Nobody's excited about wang. These guys but there could be points scored in this game because we know the chargers are going to score and the chargers defense has been giving up production. Obviously things will help either. Sam darnold or joe flacco. If joey bosa can't come back from a concussion he's missed a couple of games so let's We'll keep an eye on that but yeah the jet sir. They've got some guys who are in a bind you can put in your. Let's put it that way. Not something that i'm excited to do. But a shot perriman make an impact was was a positive there for new york on the other side with the chargers that was not a good performance by just herber in the chargers offense. Yeah it wasn't it wasn't pretty And eventually it's going to happen. I mean it. It wasn't the greatest performances by any stretch of the imagination. But he's a rookie quarterback. Now the thing that i'm i'm wondering here when it comes to the chargers they look. I can't believe kaelin balaj there will be back at. I mean it's the way i mean. Great amata kalem lodge guy. I never have been ceylan belhaj guy but they did have a tough match-up against the miami defense. Keep that in mind. This is not as tough match-up and i get. I go back to a couple of weeks ago. When kansas city played the jets. And we're all thinking. Oh my lord it looks like clyde getting twenty five carries and lady on bells going to get twenty in the just gonna run it down. The jets flirts and that is the complete opposite of what happened. And he came out and said the new york jets are a past funneled events. They are much worse on the back end than they are in the front seven. We are going to throw the ball all day. I wouldn't be shocked if saints each in the offensive coordinator with the chargers. Anthony lynn decide. Let's get justin her back on track. Let's throw the ball all over the yard in this game. It's a great match of king analysis. It is a great matchup for mike williams. It was phenomenal to finally see hunter. Henry get off the schneider and get in the end zone and it was one of those plays where you're holding your breath because justin herbert's rolling out to the right and you see my hunter henry leak out in the back of the endzone going towards the back pylon and freaking neighbors the The fullback is in front of justin. Herbert you're like oh no do not check it. Down to neighbors at the goal on just in herbert. The rue the ball. Five million hunter henry in the end zone so he got off schneider last week. The backfield is an obnoxious though. Because i'm not a kaelin balaj guy. I don't think it's a great matchup for the run game anyway. It doesn't look like austin ekeler is going to be back a just yet so a blog. I mean he's been the guy justin jackson's on i are they clearly have They put they put a joshua kelley in the doghouse. So yeah. I think obliges of low end rb two if you need them but to me. This is a pass on defense. And i wonder if the chargers gonna take that approach next up to end the dolphins at the denver broncos. If you can find a worse fantasy game this week be my guest. Be my guest. That's the way. I look at it Last week i look with the miami dolphins. They might have found something last week with savant. Akhmed the running back out of washington where he actually played behind myles gaskin at washington but matt britos practicing this week so is really going to come in and take touches from savant akhmed who looked really good and i think they should continue rolling with him but you look at the passing game. Production against the chargers who by the way are very beatable in the secondary to complete fifteen passes for one hundred sixty nine yards and two touchdowns. One of the touchdown goes to takim. Brandt who's kind of low end wide receiver three devante parker got a touchdown call back. He had seven targets in conscious. Two of them so he had no production. The other touchdown was a designed play. The backup tight end. durham smyth. So he's not somebody you're playing. This passing game isn't great right now. So it's not what i really trust outside of like. Jean grant devante parker as low end wide receiver. Threes in the backfield. I'm considering von akhmed med. A flex play. But you have to keep an eye on the status of map rita so it is not a great offense right now for miami when it comes to fantasy despite that team being six three and headed towards the playoffs how about denver drew lock. Drew walks her. He's been terrible. I mean he's turning the ball over at a prodigious rate. Miami's defense is has been i mean arguably over the last month the best in the nfl which which high praise for what brian flores has been able to do the way he generates pressure. This is a horrible matchup for the denver broncos whether it's drew lock or whether it's or whether it's Brent ribbon what they can pull. John elway out of the press box. It's horrible. it's horrible match for the denver broncos. i don't feel good about anybody in this matchup. Maybe with the exception of jerry. Jeudy who's who's starting to get open but again you have that. Wonderful cornerback byron jones. Avian our i would not be shocked if denver struggle put up two hundred yards of offense in this game by the way. The backfield was atrocious. Last week phillip. Lindsay ran for two yards in that game. Melvin gordon i think ran for twenty one and neither one of caught a bass get to the dallas cowboys and the minnesota vikings looks like the cowboys are gonna any adult and back. Joe start is the question. He's coming off the this recording this on wednesday he's off the cove enlist Presumably his co. clear concussion protocol or are they going to go with garrett gilbert who kinda give them spark in that game against pittsburgh. We're not sure that yet Either way I i think there's a little bit more life to the cowboy. Offense and cd lamb is the receiver. I keep going back to because minnesota's given up production out of the slot this year So ceedee lamb the guy. If i'm playing one of these cowboy receivers. Probably the one that i'm most excited about. Amari cooper is probably in your lineup. I think like gallup's longer bench at this stage. Keep an eye on the backfield. Zeke elliott's dinged up. He hasn't been good anyway. Are they going to give tony power more touches going forward. At as i stand right now i think zeke's and rb to pollard is a flax and cv. Lamb is my favorite player offensively for dallas. But just because they got some live out at garrett gilbert and maybe any place in this game doesn't all of a sudden mean. I think this is going to be a good offense. I still think it's gonna stink. Vikings didn't put up a ton money. How about justin jefferson. No joe yeah he's screwing he's getting open on a regular basis. Here's the issue though. Minnesota's a seven point favorite in this game. And you know how. Mike zimmer wants to play if they have a lead they are going to run the heck out of the ball so as good as justin jefferson. Adam phelan have been it. Sucks that you still have to hold your breath when you're playing those guys because you know that game is noncompetitive. It's going to be dalvin. Cook game heck even in a nineteen bertin game against chicago. Dalvin cook had thirty. I'd been come on like justin jefferson and adams view and i think you have to suck it up and say these guys are wide receiver twos but the problem is if they get out to a lead here at home as touchdown favorites dalvin cook and alexander. Madison are going to carry the football in this game. So obviously dalvin cookies like the rb one. There's no confusion they're kirk cousins is a viable streamer. Because of the match up by the cowboys just put trevan digs the rookie corner on. I r with a foot injury so a better matchup but you can also look at this and say if minnesota drives down the field gets the touchdown run from dalvin cook on the first possession then forces a three and out. This might be one of those games. Where kirk cousins. Those fifteen bass's it. That is always a risk when you stream kirk cousins even in a great matchup up next. Here's green bay indianapolis but before we get to green bay in indianapolis joe. I need to tell you about the national lacrosse league. You know why.

Well here's what's gonna be interesting with green ben. First and foremost it's bad matchup. Indianapolis has a really good defense and green bay is getting closer to getting allen lazard back from that core muscle injury but all of a sudden. Just when you're like allen lazard coming back and aaron rodgers is finally going to have a number two receiver to throw the ball to orcas. Now the scantling comes out has to massive games in a row. So i'm a little wary to play valdes scantling for fantasy though knowing how he's been kind of a he's he's got a book david copperfield e he has these spectacular games and then he made some disappear just like that like he's had multiple goose eggs this year despite having games where he's scoring seventy five yard touchdowns so of allen lazard is back. I'm probably going to wait and see especially in this match up on the secondary receivers for the green bay packers. So i'm looking at this in a bad match up as being an aaron rodgers. You gotta plan at this. At this point. Aaron rodgers. Davante adams you might have heard of that guy. Probably play him and aaron jones with a little bit of jamaal williams who they're still mixing in on passing downs as a potential flex play but this is a narrow narrow green bay game in this week. Because i wanna see what they do with allen lazard if indeed. He's back this week from that. Core muscle injury the other game of course. It is the colts in job. what do you think. The colts joe l. a. Nothing that we can put on air about fantasy. I mean it is over right now for jonathan taylor. Seven carries for twelve yards. They're using jordan. Wilkins at nine nine running back for colts that i wanted us at this point by the way i i mean it stinks. But philip rivers loves checking the ball down. He's been making big plays in consecutive weeks. He's the guy i think. If you're if you have the colts the running back using right now. I don't. I don't really Terribly fond of jordan wilkins as a player. Jonathan taylor has struggled as a rookie. There's no two ways about that. The guy everybody's picking up for fantasy is the rookie receiver. Michael pittman who had seven catches for one hundred and one last week against tennessee. The problem is if joe you're alexander can play this week you would think john. Alexander might shadow lycopene advantage alexander as talented as michael pittman is. he's a rookie against dire alexander. Dire alexander shadows here. That is a huge huge problem for the colts passing game. I can't trust he. White hilton t y hilton has one game of ten or more fantasy points this year. He's flat out droppable for me. I mean he's a bench guy right now. So i'm looking at this for indianapolis as a potential low scoring game. Where the only guy i feel really good about playing is nine mines and saying i feel really good about lying him when they have a three man. Backfield rotation it's problematic. The colts in the dolphins are two teams. That are six and three that are just knock teams for fancy right now. Let's get to kansas city. And the las vegas raiders sunday night. So this is interesting because we have an over under a fifty seven here. It's behind that. Might that might seem a little bit high given the raider offense. But that's behind only the thursday night game which we know it look seattle arizona. We expect a lot of points scored neck game tonight but kansas city oakland a vegas rather fifty seven point over under kansas city. You know what you're doing like you're you're planning your guys the only thing. I'm concerned about with kansas city. Is today start running ball a little bit more because quite edwards allaire. It hasn't been that levy on. Bell has taken so much work from clyde edwards helaire. It's there hasn't been working at all because they're not running football. They decided that they are going to start throwing the ball all over the yard and they're going to continue doing that with and tyreek hill. Emeco harmonised practicing on wednesday recording this on wednesday. He's he was on the covid list but it looks like he's gonna go. He started to get involved a little bit more. You can consider him as a wide receiver. Three kansas city coming off. A bye is sammy. Watkins going to be able to play. So that throws another wrench into matters. That might hurt Miekel hardman's upside but with kansas city. I think i'm playing edwards layers like a low end rb two and i'm hoping he catches some passes maybe gets in the end zone but this team before it went to buy decided we're not going to run the football at all because we have patrick mahomes and why would we run the football and frankly it's worked for them. Yeah i mean you're right run it. It's unbelievable what about vegas. So when i look at vagus here it's three straight games by the way where derek carr has attempted twenty five or fewer passes and that is the way vegas wants to play because not only josh jacobs running. Well but devante booker is running wealth so twenty five or fewer passes in three straight games. Four derek carr. He's been under two hundred yards passing and all those kids however you look at last time. They played kansas city with the raiders. One that football game dare cargoes for three forty two and three touchdowns with one interception the touchdowns going to nelson aguilar. Who's back to his old tricks by dropping passes now and henry ruggs. Darren waller dare cars numbers last week would have looked a lot. Better than waller. Didn't travel long touchdown in right in the hands And he just dropped but they're going to have to throw the ball a little bit more this week. I would certainly anticipate that it's not going to be another game. Twenty five or fewer pass attempts for derek carr. The problem for the raiders. Is what wide receiver do you trust. They mix it all around aga- lar- rugs both those guys are on the wide receiver. Three radar end. It's basically do you guess right. This week is one of those guys. The guy who's going to score the touchdown this week. So they're both wider. See refreeze you have to play. John jacobs i mean there's there's nothing you can do play josh jacobs. He's been really good this year. You have to play them but you understand the game. Plan for the raiders. The last three weeks has been to run the football. I doubt they're going to be able to do that with the with the plum that they've had the last three weeks because kansas city is going to score more points than the raiders offense than the raiders opponents the last three weeks. Let's get to the rams and the bucks and this is going to be are highlighted draft kings game of the week joe. I'm really looking forward to it now. Andrew whitworth out is obviously ad for the rams right now the rams are three and a half point underdogs on the draft or spoke gap. I think were significant reminder by the way get the draftkings sportsbook app on your phone and use the promo code. Ross when you sign up yet thousand dollar bonus which is insane to make sure you use the code. Ross there But i think there might be a bunch of points in this joe. What do you think. I would anticipate that there will be a bunch of points in this game. Forty eight and a half is the line right now. Which which is which is on the higher end but you know as we anticipate is we talked about on last week's podcast the buchan ears performance against the saints couple of weeks ago just a the tape performance. It was one of those games that i didn't think you could glean anything from. They just got their butts whipped and and they came out this week and looked a whole hell of a lot better The question i have with with with the rams last week they had became a big basically showed up with with jalen ramsey not exclusively wasn't every snap but will they do the same this week and i'm not sure they can do that with the way. The buccaneers mix up their wide receiver. So i know mike evans has been getting involved more and more recently. Tom brady his big numbers as tom. Brady and mike evans boat up in that game last week against carolina brady overthrew evans for like three touchdowns like he could have had a much bigger game. So our is our the rams gonna look this and say. Hey we need to slow down. Mike evans or are they going to realize say look in tonio brown on the outside. They put chris godwin on the outside. They put edmondson the slot. Sometimes we can't follow mike evans around. We can't follow any of these guys around. That would be the way. I lean when it comes to the tampa bay buccaneers. So i think. Tom brady end these three receivers look. I understand how annoying it is. But we've only seen them in two gains with antonio brown one of them. Nobody came through. Nobody came through. Because the buccaneers entire offense was garbage against the saints. Last week everybody came through. Because the buccaneers offense was also against the carolina panthers so might lean is. I think you play all three of these wide receivers evans and godwin's as wide receiver to brown a wide receiver. Three until we get a better picture of what the average game of the tampa bay buccaneers. Looks like i think. We saw two extremes. In antonio brown's two games which makes it a really difficult situation to breakdown tight end gronkowski's A tight end one right now. There's not too many tight ends. I trust more than him. Maybe i mean it's hard but like the only one who are i'm actually like thrilled about is travis kelsey right now because the position is such a wasteland in the backfield. The one problem last week was ronald jones. Got the carries yet. Ninety eight yard touchdown lender fornet. Didn't need to play on third downs and passing downs because they led the entire way. So it's still like playing a game that backfield but we know ronald jones is gonna get the early down work against the rams. What about the rams on the other side. Joe against the bucks defense with the bucks defense is because we thought it was now. Maybe it's not but the problem with this ram offense how many frigging players they use. And it's it's getting it's driving me nuts. Ross i'm going to be honest. And here's the issue with the passing person former andrew whitworth being out. I know that the news wasn't as bad as they fear. But he's still going to miss this game. So that fucking pass rush is going to get after jared goff. So i'm downgrading this offense across the board. The problem here is how about how involve josh reynolds has been the last three games for the los angeles. Rams eight targets nine targets ten targets. That is hurting robert. Woods cooper kupp. Though the what thing you thought with the rams this year was at least we know woods in their targets. Josh reynolds areas the to throw a wrench into things. The backfield three man rotation malcolm brown. Darrell henderson cam. Akers cam akers lead carries as we. Good luck guessing right there. I still think darrell henderson is the best option. But jared goff is downgraded without andrew whitworth against this defense Oh by the way tyler. Gerald ever. Yeah we're going to get those guys involved too. So what i see here is an offense that clearly is moving the football but it just lost. Maybe the single player could afford to lose. least with. maybe. The exception of jared goff just because they don't have good backup quarterback in andrew whitworth against a good defense You're on the highway. So you're underdogs as is going cross country. It is monday. I gave me so you have extra time to prepare. I'm not terribly certain. This is a great match up for the los angeles. Rams offense i. I think woods in copper low end wide receiver to take up. I like to avoid goth this week if possible and take your pick in this damn backfield. Because i don't really know which guy address by the way the total for that game on the draft king sportsbook gap forty seven. And a half. So you know it is forty seven and a half and what you also know is fantasy points dot com use the code feast no matter what your purpose is.

2021 Rookie WR Rankings Part 2

"It's time to eat. What hungry four. Sit down and get ready to consume an abundance of fantasy football knowledge from ross. Tucker and joe dolan now on the fantasy feast eytan podcast. Yeah let's eat. maybe news. The fantasy feast eating podcasts presented by draft. I'm ross tucker former. Nfl offensive linemen five teams seven years. A bunch of podcasts andrew. Brandt was fantastic on. Today's rostock or football podcast. He always is. We'll have greg cosell on tomorrow's ross tucker football podcast. All of our shows the best thirty minutes of on demand audio or video. Youtube dot com. Slash ross tucker. Nfl that you can get fantasy fees for fantasy even money for betting raw soccer football podcast for just general awesomeness and football and the college draft. Podcast has been awesome with emory hunt. Going over every single draft choice in the twenty twenty one. Nfl draft wind up. I also been loving this series. We've been doing here on the fantasy fees podcasts where we are getting the great joe. Dolan's rankings for every rookie of consequence. We did quarterbacks. We did tight ends. We did running backs. we had a brief interlude. Where we made sure you knew about the quarterback veterans situations and rookies for draft kings. Best ball. Which has launched which is awesome. We will have some very cool opportunities for you as it relates the best ball and me and joe and draft gangs in future weeks next week by the way. We're gonna into little rookie of the year conversation some rookie. Prolapse really into the rookies. These days tom. Brawley from fantasy points and absolutes. But i mentioned joe dolan at f g underscore dolan on twitter. He's the fantasy gangster. F g underscore dolan the master of all he oversees at fantasy. Points dot com. Where you should put in the code. Twenty-one feast and joe this is it this is the end of our rookie skilled guy rankings post draft after this is the kind of a ranking system where fortunately we're having some semblance of a normal off season this year so there might be guys where i say You know right now. I don't have a whole lot of interest where come to an august. You're starting to hear the buzz. Maybe somebody gets hurt. You know Somebody like for instance. We're we're going to talk about a lot of dates. Wide receivers on this podcast. But for instance. Somebody like josh palmer. Who's third round pick of chargers. Wide receiver position. Somebody might not think has a whole lot of value rate. Now but keenan allen's gotten dinged up at in recent years. I i don't wanna call him entry. Promo mike williams has had a big time problem with injuries. He might be somebody who shoots up draft boards in july and august so member these are just initial rankings. Where i'm looking at guys in from from a best ball perspective. A lot of the guys we talked about today are going to be last. Last round last two or three rounds type of guys but certainly in the second and third rounds even into the fourth and fifth rounds. A lot of talented receivers came off the board of the nfl draft. Well and to that point joe. Last week we talked about the von tastes smith through rishaad bateman. We ranked or at least not we. You gave us your rankings. By the way i'm at ross tucker. Nfl we are at ross tucker pod but you gave us your rankings for all the first round picks tamar chase devante smith. Jalen waddell could area's tony rashad bateman this week. We're talking about the second and third round guys in particular it. Maybe you have a fourth round guy or somebody late you have your eye on. Here's the thing joe. There have been some ridiculous seasons. As far as rookies are concerned from round. Two and round three. Recently i mean terry. Maclaurin decay metcalf tee higgins. I know i'm missing five. I mean there've been a bunch of legit second and third round rookie. Joe diana i mean even dating back. Ross a couple of years. I mean you know i know. He's of out of the league. Now but jordan mathews produced big time numbers as a rookie. Davante adams was a second round. Pick you know dating back. chad johnson. Ocho cinco i believe the second round pick. He was the late first early. Second round pick even dating back to. I believe two thousand to one of the greatest rookie seasons of all time. Anquan boldin was a second round picks. So you're looking at guys here who Michael pittman last year was the second round. Pick a chase. Claypool was the second round. Pick to to suggest that these guys they weren't first round pick so they're not gonna produce. I mean it's just lazy analysis at this point a ross. It's lazy analysis to suggest that guys aren't going to produce simply because of their That they weren't first round. Pick it up. I had some questions about guys like canaries. Tony mashad bateman who were first round picks about their opportunities to produce fantasy but there are some guys certainly who went on day two one looking at potentially producing early on to great point. Let's dive into a joe. The highest rank guy. The first guy taken very curious about this. I could see this guy put up some pretty legit numbers. Second pick of round two allies. You're more goes into new york jets. Which i thought was a little weird joe. Considering arguably the best skilled player for the jets was a slot receiver and then they go ahead and draft the slot receiver. I think more can do a little bit more than that. The problem is his size. He's not very big. I think he's i think he was listed at five nine or measured in five nine. But this is a really talented guy. This is somebody our guy. Scott barrett came on the podcast and number of months ago and sung the praises of large more. And then. I had a conversation with greg cosell just yesterday as as this wednesday the second of june just yesterday the first june ida conversation with him where he said he likes allies. More state more than that canaries. Tony now the that's not. That's not a mind blowing statement they went about you. Know ten to fifteen picks apart so it's not that controversial statement but you see that line of demarcation between first and second rounder. But i do believe allies. Moore's got a chance to produce right away. There is a little bit of a roadblock your though and i think you were alluding to jamison crowder and jamison crowder now. Everybody's always cut candidate. They can save ten million dollars but the thing about jamison crowder is. They have the cap space. They don't they don't need that money they can keep jamison crowder and they can and they can and help him ease. Zack wilson into his job right. Now i've got a live more in like the wide receiver fifty five to sixty range at for a rookie wide receiver. Now you might be looking at that. And saying whoa. Whoa whoa you know that that. That's a little too low. Well keep in mind. I have him above two first round picks. I have them above both rashad bateman. And i have him above a canarias tony on my personal fantasy jeff. Just because i like the opportunity a little bit more but all of a sudden you know. And if you're somebody who who sam darnold stan and you're kind of making excuses for for for sam darnold well all of a sudden you look at this receiving corps with corey davis and denzel. Men's and now you've got more. And then they add. They had a they they. They still router right right. They still have crowder their it. It's super deep now. So there is a little bit of a competition for targets but i think that wide receiver fifty five to sixty range is the right kind of spots. Be taking a larger more. I wouldn't be overly shocked if he ended up leading the team in receptions just because of what he can do but right now. I don't think that's the most likely outcome but alive more is a guy. I will be peppering a ton in the double digit rounds in best ball. While we're at it. I want to ask you about the other. More rondell moore who also went in the second round. You know. he's a he's a weird guy in the sense that first of all unbelievable high school football player. He was in the us army bowl. I called it any. Might add joe like the best freshman season by receiver almost ever. I mean he's a purdue killing ohio state knowing these teams and then his second year gets hurt last year. What he played like a game or two and out but he goes the arizona cardinals where they wanted speed. They wanted a big playability. Now they still have a. J. green who you point out last week had a horrific season. They do have the andre hopkins. So what are we thinking about rondell. More well ross. The commodores wrote a song about him. He is a brick. You know what else i mean. He's he's five foot seven but this guy is built like a tank. I mean just so. He's really good. After the catch now the question becomes. Do you look at that five foot seven frame and say that's not a full-time player. That's somebody who we're gonna play forty five to fifty percent of the snaps and we're gonna manufacturer touches for him. Cliff kingsbury has been good at manufacturing touches in his nfl career as a coach thus far and it does that mean that he's not going to produce a whole lot for fantasy or or is he more of like a really good nfl player. Who just who doesn't get it done for fantasy. All that much. I can tell you projection for rondell. More fantasy points dot com right now. We have them for forty six catches as a rookie. And now that's presupposing Cheryl does retire. I certainly think if larry fitzgerald says come in. I'm going to be a part time player. The cardinals would accommodate that. But certainly at this point rondell more gives you more no pun intended as a slot receiver than liar fitzgerald does just a really good after the catch type guy. I would think in leagues where you might have return yardage rondell more could contribute their I currently have him at. Let me find them in my rankings. Here i currently have him at wide receiver sixty eight in my personal best ball rankings. Who incidentally that's where we have in our staff projections at fantasy points dot com wide receiver. Sixty eight. i'm just not sure the ball games going to be there but certainly an explosive player. Somebody who. I will be dabbling in when i take him towards In the background of a best ball draft he certainly just gives you more juice than some of the for instance aj green. I think i'd rather have rondell more than eight green. Maybe that ends up looking stupid. Because i think the cardinals are counting on. Aj green to start for them on the perimeter. But i just truly believe rendezvous moore offers more upside at this stage well especially best ball right. Like doesn't seem like rondell more as a good candidate to have two or three big games because he was big playability right and i mean. There's there's a chance here were rondell. More has like three games where he has three catches for one hundred yards and a touchdown now he might end up with forty catches on the season. You might have five or six games where he doesn't catch a football but as your six receiver on a best ball team. Those white games are what matter you know. Take it from me. The guy who keeps falling into the sean jackson trap every single year those spike games do matter and i think rhonda more gives you an opportunity to get those spike games not gonna manufacturer touches for him that includes jet sweeps that includes the little pop passes that sean mcvay has made popular. You know thrown into cooper crop and robert woods with with the With with the rams. So i certainly think rondell more is going to be utilized in that kind of Role joke ask you a personal question. Quick yes you can. Are you losing your hair. yeah i am. Ross it's it's it's it's slow. It's a slow death right now but you do notice i switch. The hats wasn't ask any of my college friends. I wasn't a happy guy in college now. My wife she tells me she's like i like when he wear hats down. I was like no no. You know what my wife is always like when i wore hats but a lot of times for the tv stuff and speaking engagements so you can't wear hats. I don't know if you're using keeps or not yet. Joe but if you want to keep your hair and most people do you absolutely should look we know about the fda now with all the pandemic stuff. They've approved two medications that prevent hair loss that means in multiple studies. There is evidence and proof that they prepare. This isn't like oh. I think that might know it does. And i've been a customer for years. In fact i was put in Topical solution on my head and taking the pill before i heard about keeps and then keeps came out of holy second. I have to go to the doctor anymore to get the prescription for the pill. I don't have to go by the topical solution or go to the drugstore to pick it up. No know it's an online doctor. It's beautiful they send in both of my house. Now the topical solution and the pill if you're ready to take action and prevent hair loss like joe doe and needs to go to keep dot com slash feast to receive your first month of treatment for free. So i'm gonna give you that as a bonus for doing the show. I'm gonna sign you up for keeps kfi eps dot com slash feast of gimme laundry. What did that k. e. eps yet k. e. eps dot com slash feast. That'd be jove you sign up and send me the screen shot. I will get you something legit. Because i'm just telling you to look at my hair looking like did you go back to like see me on tv like five years ago. Eight years ago. I actually think it looks even better. Anyway let's keep it going because there's some more receivers to get to including round two guys. The next guy believe it or not to go off. The board was to the seattle seahawks. Dwayne wayne s coverage was the twenty. Four th pick of round to joe. I don't know man. Decay metcalf tyler. Lockett who jones rumors which i highly doubt by the way i don't know if i'm feeling s courage feels like he's maybe more of a dynasty longer term play then he is a best ball guy for our guy for this year. I think you can make the argument that he's a worthwhile final round. Best ball kind of picked way. Nascar critise super explosive. One of the problems that i think dynasty players might run into with wayne. S coverage is reconciling that. He's a super old rookie. Here's here's me. I turned thirty five a month and a half. But he's twenty four as a rookie. Which is which is an old for rookie. Ross like let. Let's call it like it is. There are some guys who haven't turned twenty one yet. You're entering the nfl seahawks. See a guy who was super explosive in college New as a special teams player of the year. I think he's going to be a return man but you know. I don't think they're going to let russ cook. They tried it for a bit. And then you know. Ross was cooking some spoiled food. I mean let. Let's be honest with it like so. I don't think they're gonna let russ cook this year. I think they're going to be once again. A low volume passing offense gonna filter number of targets to those two very good receivers metcalf and lockett escorts is a guy. i think. Draft him as a sixth or seventh wide receiver. You hope for him to have a game or two where he pops off and uses that explosiveness That's interesting that you don't think they're gonna let us cook. I just don't think so. I mean i look pete carroll. They told you constantly over the years that they want to run the football they resigned. Chris carson this offseason russell. Wilson is coming off arguably the worst eight-game stretch of his entire career after he started the season. You know on that hot streak it and then just something happened. I you know they bring in walter and they bring them in from the mcvay offense. Is they base everything on the run game. You know that outside zone. Run game that that wide zone. That is the basis for the passing game again. You don't need to run to set up the play action but the what your concepts are based off that run game. That is exactly what seattle still going to be I don't know if the summer of discontent for russell wilson's over. Not but i just don't see this as as the kind of offense that's going to support three wide receivers fantasy now. I think if you're looking at at dwayne S ridge. I think you look at somebody like david moore who i think. I'd like thirty five catches and six touchdowns last year. And i wonder if that's kind of 'scrooges upside member david moores gone. He's not there anymore. So i wonder if you're looking at that and you're saying it was exactly that thirty five catches six touchdowns for david moore. There's best value in that Drafting that guy in the week where he scores a touchdown or two. But there's not redraft value there okay. Let's get the terrorists marshall. Junior second round pick goes to the carolina. Panthers remember play lsu carolina panthers offensive coordinator joe brady came from lsu played for him. Is that enough. The combination of terrorists marshall in familiarity with joe. Brady curtis samuel outs very curious to hear your rent martial law. I think they can play in the slot at wide receiver. Seventy four right now just just as a kind of a of a guy that's right in the same range as emmanuel sanders demarcus robinson. So i think you understand that. There's missing targets there. Maybe marshall is the slot receiver there now like they might put. Dj more and more on the slot. Which which bodes well. Because you know. Sam darnold town a lot of success throwing the ball to jamison crowder. But i think marshall can play all over including in the slot. You would think he's got a shot to be one of the top three receivers with robby. Anderson will obviously also has a report with sam darnold and dj more. They have david moore. Who i just talked about From seattle they brought him over so terrorist marshals going to have to compete for a job. But i do believe there's a shot for him to come in here. Take some snaps right away. They have shy smith as well the rookie out of south carolina But but yeah. I think he's a guy who i kinda rank higher than than dwayne s courage quite. Frankly because i think there's a better path to targets here knows the offense. I think there's a better path. Well yeah he knows the offense. Joe brady if he's using the same terminology I think there's a better path to targets for terrace. Marshall here than there is for somebody like dwayne ask rich. What about tutu. atwell with the rams. Now there's not a lot of targets available with the rams as early however they took him in the second round for a reason maybe they give us a manufacturer touches three to five game. Maybe he's the jet sweep guy now. Is there a place for atwell especially in best ball to maybe have a couple of weeks where he scores for you and then you have to keep in mind. What else is there to sean jackson's their mr one week. Every every season to sean. Jackson has one game where he blows up and then he blows out his hamstring. And he's done for the year he's so he's there and look to to out wells not an insurance policy against the sean jackson. The rams aren't as invested into sean. Asu jackson succeeding as the eagles foolishly. Were the last couple of seasons. So what i think too to out well is is sean mcvay saw player here. Who has a rare treat. He is unbelievably explosive. He's also a complete outlier ross. When's the last time you eight hundred forty eight pounds That would have been seventy eighth grade. I had a growth spurt. Probably around eighth grade ninth grade. But you know my playing weight in high school. When i when i started when i first got to the varsity team as a sophomore was one hundred seventy five so you know what Defensive andros. i two way football. I didn't know you played high school football and let me just say there's a reason i'm talking about it now. Though dude you served your country. I loved it apart. Amazing yeah i did. There's a reason. I'm talking a one thing that that i wish i would do. In hindsight i was very meek player. And i would be so much more aggressive with the you know just like you get into your thirties and you don't worry about his. It's like dude. You're playing football. You're love piss people off. Like i was a meek player and that that just didn't fly i for me to succeed. I needed to be a motor guy. Ross i didn't. My motor was inconsistent. Anyway let's just put it. Let's just say this to to atwell when when when guys talking. Fantasy football outweigh a wide receiver. Hundred pounds that that ain't good. I mean now. I don't think he's a ninety percent. Snap guy i think he's a thirty five forty percents snap guy. I'd just pulled. I just pulled off. Like i just drafted him in the eighteenth round startup dynasty draft like nobody specs to to out while to be volume guide but in basketball. Maybe you get into like Some of these deeper best ball drafts like the nfc. Does these thirty three round. A best ball champions drafts and that those are the types of leads where he's gonna go he's got an eighty p that's barely registering right now and i can't really. I can't really knock that right now. You're considering they've got cooper kupp. They've got robert woods. They've got to sean jackson for. However long the sean jackson stays healthy they have van jefferson. There is a lot of competition for snaps and targets. Your josh reynolds is gone. He's off the tennessee. But josh reynolds is gone so you have to keep that in mind. There is not a lot of snaps to be had here for two out. Well what he's the kind of guy who if he plays ten snaps one of them might be the five yard touchdown so he's more of a deeper best ball kind of guy i. I don't think you're going to be seeing him. Getting drafted a whole lot in your standard draftkings. Best ball dress or joe. Speaking of draftkings. They got a ridiculous deal. If you go and sign up for draftkings sportsbook and you use the code. Ross you can turn one dollar into one hundred dollars in free credits by betting on a basketball team. Embiid is not playing tonight. What are we doing joe. I a winning anyway of all. What are we doing with our bet. Secondly i saw dr chow said the meniscus tear. It can get worse. I'm very upset right now. joe. I'm very upset. I'm upset to the sixers. The hope seems to be that he's been playing with this for awhile and they just noticed it back seems to be the hope but the sixers close in the series out tonight. Ross take it to the back. I hope so man even without him Yeah but even without them. They're they're taking it to the sixers had to have terrible shooting performance. And the rafts in the pockets of the wizards in order for the even without and beads. A losing logic than they're winning tonight. And then just say if you rosaries. We'll just use the code ross. That's all that matters. Draftking sportsbook for one hundred to one all right. We're throw some names. Joe i want you to tell me if any of these guys are on your radar screen door ranked and or relevant okay. Nico collins went to the texans. In the third round thailand. Wallace went to the ravens in the fourth round. Amari rogers to the packers in the third round josh palmer to the chargers in the third round they wanted interesting to me a little bit on raw state brown the lions in the fourth round that interests me diani brown third around the washington football team. Will i'll start. I'll stop there for right now. Any of those guys that you're like yes. Ross i'm talking about this. So i mean we can't talk about all of them i think nico collins is going to see the field because all the texans have no reason not to not to let them on the field and they traded multiple picks up to get him the kamaruddin rogers interesting for the packers especially aaron rodgers plays because i think he can step into the slot but then the name that stood out to me and maybe this isn't the exciting a rest ball pick. Because i don't think there's a ton of upside to be quite frank. We actually have a monroe amman. Raw sate brown Projected to lead the detroit. Lions wide receivers in catches. Now i mean you know that's like saying i'm the fastest guy on the fantasy point staff you know. That's not a which. I which. I almost certainly not by the way but it's not exactly the kind of race that you're going to sell tickets for. It's what what i think. It's a really really thin receiving group. You have tyrel. Williams and persuade paramount had injury problems. Quintez cephus as talented. I think he can step up there as well. But i thought a monroe saying brown should have gone higher in the draft thailand. Wallace is making a buzz and ravens minicamps wind. That's where wide receivers go to die. And they spent a first round pick on on rishaad bateman so he already has an uphill climb. You know the other guy That i said at the beginning of the show josh palmer. If mike williams who's in the final year of his rookie deal if he has some issues. Josh palmer doesn't have a whole lot of like capital competition there now. They guys last year in jalen guyton and tyron johnson came out and made a splash. But you look at that wide receiver depth chart if mike williams goes down. There's not a whole lot there so you got tyron. Johnson and jalen guyton. Joe read k. J. hill josh palmer is going to have an opportunity to go in there and make an impact and he's got justin herbert throwing him the football so if mike williams has some issues. There's somebody i'm going to be very interested in as well and when it comes to brown with washington fixed ula fits is going to go out there. And he's going to throw the ball down the field. Unfortunately you know you have mclaren. You have curtis samuel. The question is can diane brown come in there and beat out kelvin harmon and antonio gandhi golden for snaps and. That's something that remains to be seen but there is certainly an opportunity for him to be one of their top three receivers by any point midway through season authority. A couple more names anthony. Schwartz was a third round pick. We talked at well. Jacob harris gus. The rail jacob harris is interesting because he might be listed as tight end and if he's listed as a tight end he is an absolute freak show. And that's where. I have more interested in and be more interested in him. The rams took a bunch of freak shows In this draft up they even took jake funk in the seventh round of the running back from maryland at ease a super athlete. You talked about having the explosiveness jacob harrison. He's listed as tight end. That is where. I'm going to have my dynasty interest. I think it's going to take some time for him. But he's a freak show so keep in mind if he's listed as a tight end in your league. I'm interested in him. Let me throw two mornings out there. Both of them are fifth round picks a mere smith marquette. Who played at iowa again. Minnesota's got those too big time receivers in jefferson and feeling but beyond jefferson and feeling bc. Johnson's a scrub chad. Beebees of special teamer. Dan sent as a special teamer. Amir smith more sets shot to be the number three wide receiver for minnesota. And then let's look at kansas city. Kansas city sorry about that by the way the microphone. Kansas city is extremely thin it wide receiver for all the talent that they have on that offense. They are thin at wide receiver. Meco harman's a part time player. He's got step up. Demarcus robinson's been mostly backup in his career. How about cornell pal. Who was a late bloomer at clemson but he stayed in his tape was really impressive. I think cornell pal the fifth round pick out a clinton. he's got a shot to make an impact.

Joe doling drafting. See if follow joe. Dolan turn to tears of joe. Dolan joe you like that song right yeah. of course i do. Ross scott sheriff scott. Sheriff and i've been dm talking back and forth and he's going to get some pots hotdogs. I think he responded to my hotdog math that i had on on twitter the other day. Ross did you. Did you see that story that. Apparently eating a hot dog takes thirty five minutes. Off of your life yeah. I saw that you tweeted that. Yeah but it's it's. It's nothing because like i said this. If you eat ten thousand hotdogs in your life ten thou- that's la hotdogs. Ten thousand of them which is basically if you lived to be sixty seven. That's one hundred fifty. A year florida hotdogs. That's three a week for sixty seven years. It takes eight months off of your life. So it's a ton of hot dogs for sixty seven straight years and it takes eight months off of your life and your life was better because eight. Ten thousand hotdogs list. That's the way. I look at it stuff like that so stupid. They don't actually know that. Now there's no way they had a controlled experiment to actually know that. I know science and that is faulty science. Okay so just. Forget that and forget people like brian who don't love that song. What a loser. It doesn't love that song. The song is amazing. You know who else is amazing joe.

Epion jer epping. Or i don't know come on down. You guys are in the season long. I don't know how many i'm going to pick next week. 'cause going to start the draft at some point. I might pick the other eight next week or the other three plus the other seven next week. So go to fan tracks. Dot com slash. Ross now send me your email. Ross at ross tucker dot com and tell me you want in in the season-long redraft league against me and joe what i want. Joe is i want your tight end tears and this is incredible by the way i mean. We've been doing this for a couple of years. Now we've been doing the tears you named a tier after a player. yeah we. We've never seen this before. There is now a kelsey tear explain. Yeah it just. It's a separate i. It's just a complete separation of the player from the rest of everybody else so much. So that he's even above my elite tier of tight ends now ross. This is not the first time i've done. This is first time. We've done this on the program. But it's not the first time i've done this. There used to be at cronk tier where he was so far and above the rest of the tight ends that it wasn't even fair to call it in a league. Here it was the gronk tear. It's the travis kelsey tear. He's the tight end you pick in the first round. He very rarely goes in second if he does go in the second. It's an utter steal your his ranks in p. pr fantasy points per game over. The last five seasons at tight end tight into in two thousand sixteen tied into in two thousand seventeen titan one in two thousand eighteen tied-in one in two thousand nineteen tight end one in twenty twenty last year finished as top five tight end in thirteen fifteen games. He is a stud. He's a superstar. he's a first round pick now. You can argue. I don't like taking a tight end in the first round that might be your preference. But everything indicates tramps kelsey is the guy who's worth it got it love it. You've been unbelievable. The elite here. I think is interesting. Daryn waller and george kitto. I guess i'm not surprised by either. No and here's the thing with darrin. Lawler darren waller and kindle or two different kinds of players. Darren waller is the kind of player who might vie for the league lead in targets. I don't think. George kindle is that guy but what george kendall lacks in maybe met major target share. He makes up for inefficiency being the best tight. End over the last number of years in yards per outrun. We know darin waller is going to do. I mean darren waller is going to be an absolute target hound. Darren waller typically comes off the board at the end of the second round beginning of the third round george kiddle in the beginning of the third round to the middle of the third round. Darren waller gives you. I guess if you're worried about injuries gives you a little bit more consistency in that department. Even though he's missed some practice time this summer george kettle obviously plays his balls off so he really gets hurt a little bit more. He throws his body out there which i respect as a player but He he's he's somebody who plays really hard you know. What kind of athletic freak. george kittle. Is these two guys are just a little bit different but give you the same league. Winning kind of upside These two guys who are clearly right behind traps kelsey very interesting. What you said about kittles any injury. He does play really hard. He does block really hard he which does subject him. I feel to perhaps more injury. And i think you make a good point waller is going to get a ton of touches. I mean he's gonna get a ton of targets. I like that all right tier one. Tj hopkinson kyle pits mark andrews. You've got a rookie tight end. One two three four as your fifth ranked tight end and in tier one. There's not a real good history of rookie tight ends night. You're betting on your betting on him to be the best tight end in the nfl. I mean the best rookie tight end in. History is the other way now. we already have them number one. In our dynasty rankings just based on the age of waller kelsey and the injury history kettle. We already have pits number one but for this year. You're betting on him to be the best rookie tight end of all time. And i think there is a pathway for him to do that. Following the julio jones trait now the one difference of kyle pits between the other two guys in these this year among sorry mom. It's among the three the big difference between a among these three is. I don't think kyle pits projects to be the number one receiver on his team. That's calvin ridley now. I think he can get a monstrous targeted air. And that's a team that's gonna throw the ball quite a bit. But i just don't think that he is going to out. Target calvin ridley here the other two guys here when you when you look at mark andrews and tj hopkinson. I have a legitimate shot. If not an expectation that they're going to lead their team in target so that that's the way i look at this year i am ranking kyle pits here based entirely on his upside again. There are some folks who are like. There's no way undrafted drafting a rookie tight end in the fourth or fifth round. There's no history there but the people who are drafting kyle pits in the fourth or fifth round or looking at him as an outlier. Somebody who's going to essentially play big wide receiver. And i can endorse that. If you're somebody who likes to chase upset interesting. Yeah that's that's that's a fascinating one for me really curious to see how it ends up working out for. Kyle pits andrew hopkinson. I got i mean that seems a little rich for hopkinson. There's a lot of i mean. He's been banged up this camp again. Too right yeah. He's he's got a shoulder injury. It's just man everything. I've read heard from beat writers from from the lions had just been saying gop is just peppering this dude with targets when he's been out there so dan campbell came out yesterday and sent some panic into Into the hearts of fantasy players when he was like. I'm not sure if you hundred swift is going to have the conditioning to contribute in week one. Well that's a that's a concern but he also said he wasn't too worried about He wasn't too worried about a dj hopkinson being ready but yes. The injuries have been a concern for hopkinson. The next tier year is tier two. And we've got logan thomas and robert ton. These are two guys who i think are vastly different. I almost view. This is like ross. Consider this maybe the many waller kittles here. I see somebody in logan. Thomas thinks going to get a lot of target volume. He's not the reason he's not as high as waller though is because there's also terry mclaren curtis samuel to vie for targets with yami brown in washington. And they have that great defense. Which i think is going to take the target volume down. But i expect. Logan thomas is going to produce with volume robert. Tanya is the opposite view. And like kiddle where i think he's impact is going to be on big plays as vertical threat and in the red zone. These are the last two guys who if. I'm leaving my draft now there. I think there's other viable options and we'll get to them. But these are the last two guys who if i'm leaving my draft. I feel really good about as starting tight end. I like i like getting the waller. I like getting the kiddle. But you know what if i if i'm in the draft in the seventh and eighth round. I can get these guys if i'm in an auction or a salary cap. These guys are going to cost five or six bucks. And i think that i have a good solid starting option. These are the last two guys feel really good about as a starting tight end on my team and we'll get to the to the reasons why for some of the guys after i think. Logan thomas is going to have a huge year. I think he's a keeper. I think keeps is a keeper. Two out of three men will experience some form of hair loss by the time. They're thirty five. I was one of them. Fda approval has been a big talking point recently. The fda has approved two medications that can prevent hair loss keeps offers. Both i used to have to go to the doctor and having prescribed me the pill and i have to go to the drugstore to pick it up and the drugstore or like a grocery store to have to have put the top. You know the topical solution on that. I rub in no. I don't do it anymore. Keeps offers a simple stress. Free way to keep your hair treatments are just ten dollars a month. And they've got more five star reviews than any. I don't even know their competitors are. Don't worry about it. Just go to keeps dot com slash feast to receive your first month of treatment for free. That's keeps dot com slash. Feast to get your first month free. K. e. p. s. dot com slash fees. I'm not just an endorser. i'm a user abdin for awhile and we'll be for as long as i'm alive pretty much because i'd like to keep what i still got keeps dot com slash feast. I gotta get your get your connection from keeps by the way. I'm starting to get sick of it. I used to have a really thick at a hair and it started to to abandon me a little bit. You notice. I i bring a very high level hat. Wear onto the program so now just got to get in touch with your guy. That's all i mean. just use. The code keeps dot com slash fees. Twenty don't even have a special code for me. That's good 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. A lot of the off-season analysis ross has been based around the fact that urge did not look good last year but our i talked to her guy. Friend duffy from philadelphia eagles dot com and erstwhile of the of the college draft podcast He told me dude. I'm telling you the same thing that you just said. Ross urge looks really quick at camp. You have to wonder if he was playing through something last year. The offense was in a malays. You know but the question is for urges. We know there's going to be some level of split with him and got hurt. So earth is a guy who was cross had been a volume producer. And i don't know if he's going to get that volume to send him to a fantasy start worthy type of player tier four. Herb smith john. Ooh smith mikey. Thicky f- in ingram. While all right herb smith start with that one yet. He's a guy who i think. People got a little worried about last year because the earlier this off season. Because mike zimmer was like well. I don't i don't really think his his role is going to increase any pointing to tyler. Conklin somebody whose role is going to increase in the absence of kyle rudolph which is true because the vikings were almost a predominantly multi tight end team last year and obviously the third tight end is going to get on the field more when herbs when kyle rudolph comes back leaves the team that is tyler conklin. Conclaves been dinged up earth. Schmidt's been having a good camp. I got a good feeling about that. One i think earth smith view him kind of like the same way reviewing on a descending. Scale kittle tagnon. Irv smith not somebody who i think's going to catch seventy five passes but somebody who might catch seven eight nine touchdowns and come through a solid fantasy option. Johnny smith is the other end of that. That waller logan thomas. I think johnny smith got a legitimate shot elite patriots and targets and what they look at how they paid him. Look with bill. Belichick has said about johnny smith in the past. This is the best tight end after. He said this in before their their playoff game a couple of years ago when the titans ended the brady era. He is the best tight end after the catch. I've seen in the league. They are going to get johnny smith on the move. John hansen from fantasy points talked to beat writers. Who said i think. Johnny smith's the best bet to lead this team in targets. Now there's a reason. He's being drafted in the tenth eleventh twelfth round. It's there's a lot of competition there for targets to myers on henry sinaga. Are you don't know what the quarterback situations going to be. But johnny smith has been a high upside player. I've been investing in at his price by the way. I don't care what he did with the titans. The guy was into block on half of their passing downs last year because their offensive line stunk. This is a new offense for donald smith. Speaking of new picks wise is new. And they're legit.

If you or someone you know wants help call one. Eight hundred gambler. Alright your last year. Joe tier five and you have z's you did like the yeah this being boring z's grunk austin hooper gerald everett co combat. Anthony burke sir and zach ertz. That's kind of interesting about hooper. Being tear fire with all the money they gave him a now. I have heard they intend to get him the ball a little bit more. It's just a low volume passing game. The team's gonna run the ball quite a bit There i know they throw to set up the run but it is still an officiant past game. It's a low volume passing game. I mean who are i. Guess you could make the argument. He's got a shot to get one hundred plus targets but because of the state of that wide receiver position who knows what beckham. landry's getting older her good things about jonathan people's jones. But i'm not but ultimately i just don't think it's a high volume passing offense. Ross this is tear. You do not want to draft your fantasy. Starting from this year that goes without saying these are these are backup type guys that as a matter of fact i would think is like folks are maybe irks are going to be available in plenty of waiver wires at the beginning of the season. You know i'll i keep hearing about cleveland. Camp is no joke who l. That's the other thing too. They haven't joe google and they also have harrison. Brian so wanna three tight ends on that team so it even though with all the money they gave him. I think they do want to use them more this year. There's so many questions there. That i don't wanna throw my full endorsement behind him. I've been drafting him. As a second or third best ball tight end he's not a guy who's who's inactivity targeting and redraft leaks. What about joe watching the saints the other night trauman got her. It's only trauman envel- vanette got hurt. It's only it's short injuries for both. But a guy. You and i both know. Well from his penn state days juwan johnson. The broadcast crew was really hyping up as a tight end. He's been trying. He's trying to become the next. In that line of the darren waller archetype the wide receiver who kinda underachieved as a wide receiver couldn't carve out his role as a wide receiver. Who balks up slightly and they match them on linebackers and safeties any cooks the guys he was an underachiever at penn state. he was an underachiever at oregon. But the position change has earned him. Quite a bit of hype. He was out there first. Team jameis winston zalm run some out routes and how about this guy. Graham barfield douglas. Up in the preseason. John johnson is run routes from the slot on fifty seven percent of his snaps. Jared cook was at fifty nine percent last year. They view this guy as their jared cook replacement i am drafting him in any state. Now here's the problem on best ball sites. He is a wide receiver. And that's not going to change because they didn't get the position change in time but i believe. Espn is already made the change. I believe my no. My fantasy league is already made the change to tight end for john johnson. Yahu i'm not quite sure yet. But that his he's going to get tight end eligibility there. This is the guy. This is the guy who i'm not telling you to draft him in the fifth round. I'm not telling me to draft him in the tenth round but at the end of your draft. If you're like you know what. I don't need a guy like austin hooper who might catch me four passes a week. I want a guy who might be able to win me my league if everything hits look at the weapons on the saints. We know more has calloway but they got nothing. They got nothing else. It's calloway it's alvin. Kamara trautmann's dinged up. Take a shot on doin johnson. Man i took him in the fourteenth round of an expert league just last night which is an overdraft based on his. adp it is the same exact. Pick where i took darin waller in the same league. Two years ago neither championship belt to show for that. I don't feel as good about john. Johnson as i did for wall member walter with the with the hard knocks hype two years ago. Don't feel as good about but if there's a guy who's available with the last pick in your draft. Who has that kind upside. I think it's this guy john johnson and the saints.

Obviously that was that was that was our coordination. Now i just put this damn thing on. Because i i'm not having a good hair day so i'm a i wanted to just put this on. I had it in my office.

Twenty one feet so when you sign up for this year again use the code. Twenty one feast so they know what year it is. Ross it cannot be reused so we put a new code out there for people. Yes the one last year. Feast cannot be renewed so us twenty one feast to sign up for this year. Check out joe on social g. Underscore dole and i mean joe is pretty simple. We gotta do today and next week. Maybe even the we got to that. We're going to talk about these guys. I mean we got there about orderly. These guys landed and what it means from a fantasy perspective. There's a bunch of quarterbacks. So i'm gonna i'm gonna go running back and wide receiver because there really aren't as many to actually talk about russia think is interesting but let's make sure we get to him. Aaron jones is back in green bay four years. Forty eight million. Interestingly it's two years twenty million and then we'll see and right and that's the way running backs are these days ross. Unfortunately that's the kind of deal that they have to get. and we you talk with greg. cosell alabama. I'm sure you've talked with andrew brandt about the business for running backs. It's a cold world. So aaron jones who quite frankly has been one of the most underpaid players football the last four years relative to his level of production. I am glad he cashed in at least somewhat but from a fantasy perspective. This is good news because jamaal williams moving on and we will get to that. Aaron jones is going. We know he can were split backfield. We've already seen it. We've seen him split with jamaal williams. As a matter of fact. Aaron jones your attempt rushing attempts per game fell from fourteen point eight to fourteen point four over the last two seasons that was twenty thousand nineteen to twenty twenty but his receptions per game increased from three point one two three point four from nineteen to twenty twenty. That is where. I think. He's going to make his. Hey for fantasy splitting the backfield. Now with aj dylan. Who is much more. That bruising type of running back and i wouldn't be shocked if the aaron jones upwards of four passes again and that's significant because we know based on research that my guy scott barrett fantasy points don that a target for running back is worth in fantasy. Npr roughly two point five times as much as a carry. I think aaron jones is carrying might continue to fall to the twelve thirteen per game rage. Maybe somewhere in the range of where you look at an alvin kamara but with aj dylan probably plan more of a bruising role and think jones playing on all of the passing downs four. The green bay packers. I think this is a great move for fantasy. Jamaal williams is bone. Aaron jones locked in first round pick. I am glad to see him back in green bay and he's going to be able to continue doing what he does best. Okay so is it a reception worth two point five times a carry or just a target. The targets wow. That's a real. Keep in mind rocks. That running back hornets are. They're often open their often. Check out there in the short field so running backs are regularly catching seventy five eight percent of their targets which is an absurd number for for a wide receiver to get to very few wide receivers. Who were downfield options. Get to that level. A number so for most part when running back is targeted. You have a reasonable expectation that the running backs going to haul that target in. But just just think about it. I mean say running back catches four out of targets at averages eight yards per reception. Okay that's going to be seven point two points in appr league up. If you give a running back or carries he basically needs to either go seventy two yards or get in the end zone on one of those carries for harry to even come close to replicating a target. So you know you're you're looking at just. We wanna running backs like if my running back caught one hundred passes in the. I wouldn't give you carry. I mean that's that's just the way we look at it that running back position playing pr for fancy. Okay I would say to aaron jones. You might only be splitting carries with one other guy rather than two other guys and jamaal williams lands in detroit. Interesting spot for him joe. That's one you can. You can put on it ross. I hate this landing spot. I love jamaal williams. He somebody i've talked to. I actually right after a game. Two years ago member when aaron jones was hurt down the stretch for green bay jamaal williams tearing bandaged championships with his production in green bay. And i thanked one. I was like dude. Thank you you just want me a championship. he was receptive. I think every he's a blood player in green bay. Energetic books like great teammate. Both in aaron jones kind of fed off of each other but now unfortunately for our gain not not on jamaal williams clearly probably took the best money offer of ram. This is not a great landing spot because while jamaal williams able to function in split backfield effectively with aaron jones in green bay. That's good team. All fame kovac the detroit. Lions neither of those things jared got. Maybe they draft the guy. But jared goff right now Review is the quarterback. And the big problem here is. What does this do to the andre swift. I'm not knocking. Swift too much. Because i i really believe in talented act kid. But i think when. You're looking at being what mike max out four or five win team this year and maybe i'm being generous. I think people can. We have a lot of trouble looking at him in the second outed saying am i gonna take him or am i gonna take this really good wide receiver. Am i going to take the andre swift running back. But i going to take hundreds from i to take jefferson and you know people will never fantasy player. Never wanna get behind back position. But this is going to mowing the trigger on d andre swift in the second round. It's going to make it a lot harder pill to swallow for some people because jamaal williams is there and jamaal williams has still set. He's not anywhere near as explosive as the andrea swift. We understand that but he's capable grinder. He's a good receiver and he's a beloved guy in the locker. Room brings an epidemic in the present to the field. that's kinda. That's the kind of stuff. I think coaches love and i would not shock if it dan campbell and anthony. Lynn jessop a overused jamaal williams based on the contract. You just got. I do not love this landing spot. Frankly because i don't expect the lines very good some other running back deal it's been quiet. Now carson four net drake lady on bell. James conner all still out there mark. Ingram signed a deal with the houston. Texans carlos with the jags devante booker with the giants. Any of these guys fantasy relevant at all or onto the wide receivers. None of them are fantasy relevant. Thirty one. I do want to point out. How about daryl williams resigning with the they. Surprisingly cut dean williams talking about the plight of of the running back damien williams ops out of the covid season two the arab his mother who was diagnosed with cancer and it gets cut at Just absolutely brutal business. Daryl williams right now if not want to spend money draft pick to get a number to be the number two in kansas city and now you can produce and that offense and malcolm brown sign with the dolphins but it looks like according to eran wolf. They're espn beat writer. The dolphins are going to expand that back in the draft. They didn't want to spend too much money in free agency. It looks like they're going to act in the draft. So maybe brown who kind of were cam. Akers l. l. a. last year does the same thing in miami. Let's get to the receivers allen robinson franchise tag back in chicago. Chris godwin franchise tag with the bucks. I don't know if there's anything to stay there. But i don't wanna those Not really the thing about alan robinson. And i mean we know. It's impossible separate the allen robinson discourse from the quarterback discourse. And i know you just wanna pop into the running back and wide receivers. But i guess. Andy dalton is. The best quarterback allen robinson's ever played with and that's as about the racks and our robinson is played with a than it does about elton allen robinson's quarterback for if you think dalton's an upgrade or downgrade on trubisky alan robinson's quarterback group and he's probably gonna slot into that third round yet again. A if they have gotten russell wilson and the report was they need an extensive of your dan. Patrick ross reporting that. They made a massive offer for russell. Wilson it i would think that would allen robinson into the second round if they were to land back. Maybe you still get a discount. On allen robinson godwin value him the same exact way item last year a little bit up and down probably in that fourth round range for receivers but those two guys who i think their their their teams real niki. Kenny golladay juju. Smith schuster will fuller. Curtis samuel t y hilton. Aj green sammy watkins. Among the guys we might talking about inept week. Break some news to you. Came on air atrial jeremiah. Green agreed to a deal with the arizona cardinals interesting so i at times. He was the least effective for stephen football last year. And it was evident at tee higgins was better than aj green lush year. Does it change of scenery help things out for. Aj green I'm not too sure about that. If this the last chance for christian kirk to really make a significant impact. Because you know. I i was of the mind that arizona could actually spend up at the wide receiver position. Chose i mean they both rabat. Defense with jj watt they. They've made things so much that they're going for this year. Let's put it that way But i wondered if they might even be in. On kenny golladay sweepstakes will fuller sweepstakes the try to improve that position opposite deondraye hopkins this aj green signing which i think has about six million dollars guaranteed. That's at least what i just saw suggests that maybe they're not gonna be gone at high and receiver going to try to make a good season at a green. But i think this might be a meaning referendum on christian kirk. I thought it would be a huge one if they had signed golladay or will fuller but this one is hey come on man you gotta step up in produce on a more consistent basis than he has but anti-green is not somebody. I'm terribly interested in for fantasy. What about corey davis three years. Thirty seven and a half million with the jets including twenty seven million guaranteed this on the surface. You might look this up suggests coming off a career year pay guy they overpay guy coming off a career ear. And they're going to. They're going to regret the deal. But you know you really effective of by yards route. Run a full according to His yards per reception was fifteen. His catch rate was above seventy percent. Now that was in that very efficient titan offense. But here's the big question throwing accordance and until i t that look john mccain of the houston chronicle came out today and said he expects to shawn watson will be traded two months ago. That was not what the song he was thingy he said. Today he expects the shawn watson will be traded. And you would think the new york jets with the number two overall pick in that draft or going to be in on the talks shawn watson. If the shawn watson is in the poultry. If that's the case corey davis to the moon man. I'd love corey. Davis it shawn watson worthy quarterback for the new york yet. So maybe you're doing best falls right now and that. There's that corey davis went to the jets. Like why couldn't he go somewhere. Like four. were were. Maybe they have a better offense even if he wouldn't be the number one receiver. Why couldn't he go somewhere like that. Why couldn't he sign with the chiefs. Who you something opposite tyreek hill. Maybe getting discount on corey davis right now because look at the bare minimum there. I think i do not believe donald coming back at the bare minimum. I think that second aac is going to be used. Upgrade the quarterback position whether it be zach wilson or justin field trae lance or whoever they like it could be you could flop the nuts if you draft corey davis in the ninth round right now and they get john watson and all of a sudden. He's john watson's number one either. And we know how to shawn. Watson fills targets to reacts receiver like he did with with The andrea options. So maybe you can get a discount on corey davis right now but the provide of all analysis. Him who's pulling the trigger throwing the ball in that new york. Jets offense marvin jones to jacksonville nelson agholor to the patriots kendrick bourne to the patriots manual sanders to buffalo. Which of these. If any of my carrying the most about probably marvin jones because i think he will be a great fit opposite a dj charcoal jacksonville. And i it kind of gives them a one a one b younger guy who's flashed but maybe it's been inconsistent. Thanks to some inconsistent quarterback. Play and marvin jones is just alway- when if ever outperforming his eighty each shows up in the dictionary marvin jones picture will be next to it. That guy is always the most boring like nine round pick and he always produces like a fifth or sixth round or even after it looked like he was dead at the beginning of last season. He came alive. When kenny golladay went down carried some teams to some championships. So gordon jones. The guy on probably carrying the most about emmanuel sanders is interesting in buffalo because amendment. Sanders is replacing john. Brown signed with the raiders and john rouse replacing nelson aguilar who signed with patriots. So there's that kind of relationship they're going on but emmanuel sanders interesting. Because i think people are going the the surface reaction is going to be all right. He's gonna play ex. He's gonna play some of that slot. Because that's what john brown plant here. John brown was the x. In buffalo's offense. I think this is a buying opportunity. On gabriel davis. I know for fact buffalo. Love that kid. I like argh. I adam kaplan at at fantasy points dot com was telling us all season wall. The buffalo was going to cut john brown at the end of the season because they like. Gabriel davis ex. Oh adding another receiver. Much slow the fantasy hype train on. Gabriel davis. I wanna use this as a buying opportunity. Be in dynasty in best ball. You're going to still be able to get. Gabriel davis and double digit rounds. And i think that is a great investments make because he flashed big time last year and we know. Buffalo was one of the past heaviest teams in the entire. Nfl surprisingly so to me josh. Allen took the big step forward. Gabriel davis is a guy on still extremely interested in getting onto my best baltic. This year for tight ends. The top of the market for the tight end has been active. We've got hunter henry with the patriots rob gronkowski back with the bucks. Jonnu smith with the patriots. What does it mean joe. For fantasy purposes that two of the four highest paid tight end in the league are on the same team. Talk to me about jonnu. Smith and hunter henry Obviously it means bill. Belichick dot mcdaniel not able to do last year. What they really wanted to do which is run twelve personnel and they are going to run into the ground this year Quite obviously and allies we stand. The quarterback of the patriots is cam newton. Now could that change. Sure they could trade up for somebody match jones. Maybe they don't trade. And so i think you're gonna to trade into the top five to get him. Maybe there's another quarterback that they like in the draft that cam newton contract does not preclude them from from acquiring somebody to improve that position. But when i look at the tight end. I think this indicates that they are still going to be a run heavy football team. I think this is something where they believe that look. We can't run them. Act like we did with tom. Brady got nelson agholor kendrick bourne to stretch the field on the outside now but this is going to be condensed offense. That's going to be focused to the middle of the field for fantasy purposes and maybe might might change on this efforts through a little bit more. I still prefer johnny smith. Even though they sign hundred henry. Jonah smith is somebody who i view as untapped potential now. Of course everybody's out there saying and maybe patriots did overpaid. Oh my god. They overpaid for a guy who's never had five hundred Who's never had five hundred yards in a season but look at look at the packs. Jonnu smith ran a route ran a route on only fifty percent of the titans passing place last year. He was into blocked a lot after they lost taylor. Long left tackle. So he's good blocker first and foremost which indicates to me that they want. They want to run the football in new england. But johnny snipped somebody who because he was a good blocker was utilized in that area. More so than maybe you would have thought. And i think this is a guy. Bill belichick called the best tight end. He seen after the catch in the nfl said that Before the patriots loss to the titans in the playoffs last year. Tom brady's game in. And you know this is a guy who's been on bill belichick's radar and we seen the titans utilize a jonnu smith out of the backfield. Not just as a as a receiver but as a runner and look we saw. We saw the patriots. Do that stuff with aaron hernandez to when aaron hernandez was a football player. So i think. They plan on using johnny smith in an exceptionally creative way. I think they had their eye on this player. For eight a longtime. I think they were going to go after jonnu smith no matter what. Even if they thought it was overpaying. I think they believe this is the kind of player they can build their offensive attack around. Maybe that sounds like the overselling. This guy who again never had five hundred receiving yards in a season. But i think bill belichick and josh mcdaniels are looking this. Like player who they believe is being Essentially miscast in tennessee. We saw them do that years ago. They're always looking to improve on a player who they believe. Another team is is utilizing poorly. We saw years ago when they traded for wes welker when they traded for a traded a second round pick for west walker and the fans. Were like what we traded for this guy. I think that's kind of how they view. Johnny smith somebody who was under underutilized in tennessee. I think he can have a very multiple roll. New england the question becomes how much volume and when you digital hunter henry with the addition of nelson hackler with edition of kendrick bourne. There apparently checking in on some of the top running backs on the market as well. Chris carson leonard fournette yet another indication. I think this is going to be rushed at the that is the big question is when it comes to jonnu smith. I'm still gonna slot him in their round tight. At between seven and nine i think on my rankings and henry probably somewhere in the similar range seven to nine ten to twelve. They're going to run more twelve personnel than any team in football. It's guarantee claire. Spending more on the tight end position than anybody. But johnny smith is particularly interesting to me. Still because i think he can be used in multiple ways by the patriots gronk as a fantasy tight end in two thousand twenty one joe high end tight end to for fantasy in best balls somebody who maybe if you if you draft jonnu smith and then you're like i need a tight end to you really quick. 'cause i'm not really sure what his role is going to be gronk. It's going to be there in that tight thirteen to fourteen range. I expect this snaps will probably go down a little bit But brady as you saw love throw into him in the playoffs they he goes to in big spots. The question is going to be used more like he was in the regular season this past year. We wasn't huge target. But when the when the going got tough. And the buccaneers needed the score touchdown to win games. That's tom brady focuses attention. Poor forget joe should tiro williams beyond on my radar and ball drafts big games to the lions. When they're running the ball and a couple of play action passes yet eighteen round fifty fifteen sixteen th round. Maybe i mean look. He's the most accomplished receiver on that team. Which i mean. Jared goff has supported a good downfield seaver in the past. But he's back. Part of his game has really waned for for. Jared goff and obviously tyrone williams has been in and out of a lineup with injuries. He is a double digit round. Flyer again because. I don't really trust the quarterback situation there with the lions but he is the most accomplished receiver on the team. So he's gonna play. Okay let's get to the quarterbacks and we are even talked about dak have we joe. I mean the thing about dak is the take. Connor remains the same. Like this was a team not now. I think the cowboys hope would be dak. Prescott doesn't have to produce at record-breaking pace because their defense is so freaking bad the way it was last year he was on face the fro for over six thousand yards and attempt over eight hundred passes both of which would have shattered. Nfl records and that was because the defense was so bad. and of course they have those good receivers. I wanna keep an eye on his his health. He thinks he's going to be good to go for training camp. You wonder at the rushing. Numbers are gonna come down a little bit but locked in top top five innoc- picked presuming. There's no setbacks for him out of the other. Guys that have signed jameis winston with the saints ryan. Fitzpatrick was washington cam newton new england. Andy doll chicago. I'm not going there. What you colby percent or tyrod taylor right now but out of the other guys. Who's the most fantasy relevant in your mind. Quarterbacks yes fritz magic gravy. it's magic he's going to the team he's gonna start on. And here's the thing that's going to happen in washington fits. Magic is going to be significantly significantly more aggressive than Alex smith was last year. I mean look at this. Miami fits magic last year. He threw into a tight window per next stats more aggressively than anybody in the nfl But he also averaged seven point four average depth of target on his passes in miami compared to six point. Seven for dwayne haskins and four point. Eight for alex. Smith alex smith average depth of target was the lowest among quarterbacks with fifty or more pass attempts per sports info solutions. So they are going to get more aggressive in the passing game. And i mean. Just send terry mccormack to the mood like ryan. Fitzpatrick has been amazing. At sporting fantasy relevance for two receivers basically his entire career is our guy. Scott barrett has the has deduced. Terry maclaurin is probably gonna average between nine and ten targets per game. This year is going to be enough for him to just create some absolute explosive weeks. Fourth round is not too early for terry mclaren. And and patter though the deal doesn't preclude washington trying to improve at the quarterback position or even maybe allowing taylor heineke compete at some point ryan fitzpatrick just raises the ceiling of this entire offense and quite frankly i expect washington will do something else that the wide receiver position opposite opposite terry mclaren and that could push bits magic into the intriguing quarterback to range for best. Ball's if it looks like he's gonna be starting and i'm drafting him in the summer. I'm gonna be selecting ryan fitzpatrick in that quarterback nineteen quarterback twenty. Four range when unwrapping my second quarterback interesting so you like fits more than jamison new orleans cam nodding lynn or any and in chicago. Well i think fits. Magic right now has the has the best shot of those guys to start a full season. Quite frankly we know jamie's antesa hill are going to compete for the job. Chicago is still going to continue to make every overture possible. For russell wilson andy dalton will not preclude them from doing that and i still am not ruling out the patriots drafting quarterback in the first round but in the event cam. Newton is the starter. He's my favorite of that group because believe it or not even in his terrible season ehab last year. He finished as a top twelve fantasy quarterback in eight of his fifteen starts. That's the same number of top twelve finishes that russell wilson and ryan tannehill hat. So even even season which he threw eight touchdown passes cam. Newton finished eight times as top. Twelve quarterback because of that rushing production and those twelve rushing touchdown. So if you're a guarantee any cam starts the entire year undrafted in kansas top fifteen fantasy quarterback but that is a hard thing to guarantee right. Now love it. Joe terrific work. As always next week we should have a bunch of running backs and wide receivers landing in new spots to talk about. You gotta think at some point this market shakeout out a little bit more again. It's funny to talk about this. Were were more than two hours away from it. Actually starting but there's been so many other movement that's where we are right now.

2020 Week 16 (Part 2)

"It's time to eat four. Sit down and get ready to consume abundance of fantasy football knowledge from ross tucker and joe dolan mood now on the fantasy feast and podcast e baby it is the fantasy feast eating podcast and it is presented by fantasy. Points dot com. Just use that code feast. We like to eat the feast fantasy point stack. He's joe dolan. This show is the show that so nice. We do it twice a week during the season although this is our second to last week doing that actually because for you know will have playoffs and we mainly just talk. The we are coming to the end. Joe once again in front of his mom's christmas tree which we love which makes sense because we record these back to back blah blah blah blah at f. g. underscore dolan. I'm at ross tucker. Nfl twitter instagram facebook. At ross tucker pod is where it's at remember. You can always ask joe and question you like just sign up fantasy points dot com use the code. Feast forward me. That sign up. Ross at ross tucker dot com with your question for joe and you'll have the number one ranked fantasy prose analyst on planet earth. Personally answering your question. Pretty cool pretty cool. Joe's pretty cool so joe. Let's dive right into it. Okay let's start with. The panthers and washington got moved to four zero five because they do not want the philadelphia eagles and the dallas cowboys to know that they've been eliminated if washington wins. They want the eagles and cowboys to still believe that. There's a chance dominated a chance during that game. So what do you got for. Washington carolina while for fantasy purposes It's well we're going to have to see who washington's quarterback is this week although rate before we got on on the podcasts. Here there was a situation involving dwayne haskins. Where their post on social media of of haskins Getting swag on at a at a strip club without a mask on look believe me. I know that there are Those are establishments where clothing is optional. but in the nfl masks are not right now. So washington is not going to be very happy about dwayne haskins. I think it was Tom pal sarab. Nfl network reporting that the team is handling that internally not happy. I'm sure. I think they want alex smith back this week. Anyway against carolina that would raise the ceiling of this offense. I'm still not one hundred percent. I as a matter of fact. I'm not confident at all antonio gibson playing this game turf toe is very painful so that should mean a big role for jd. Mckissic once again had a huge fantasy game last week against seattle. It was nice to see terri mclaren. Come alive in that game. A little bit with dwayne haskins at quarterback too good matchup against carolina. I would use him as a wide receiver. Three and over last month of the season only two tight end. Travis kelsey and darren waller have been targeted more have caught more passes and scored more fantasy points than logan thomas. He is a tight end. One now against the carolina panthers and i think everything would look better for washington if alex smith can play quarterback. Wow that's a nice that joe. What about carolina christian. Mccaffrey does he play. And that's obviously a question that we can ever recording this on tuesday for for time reasons. We can't answer that on a tuesday. Carolina fired mardi hurting. Just fired her. Jim general managers. So you would think obviously with that move that carolina is looking at this. You know the the new owner of They're looking at this as a long term project. Matt rule obviously has this team on the right path. i know they're foreign ten but there's a lot of offense of talent here. This should be a very appealing general manager. Job got a top five pick looming where you can make a decision on quarterback with the way. Teddy bridgewater has played of late. No way. I'm playing him against washington's defense. I'll tell you that much But in the backfield. If mccaffrey goes i will play him if not. Mike davis isn't rb to dj more back at it as a huge game. Six for one thirty one unfortunately. Ross that seems to have really taken the taken the shine off your boy robby anderson who had just two catches last week. Dj moore's a wide receiver to curtis samuel low and wide receiver. Three and again. The reason that i view him as such is because teddy bridgewater has not played his best football over the last month. Teddy bridgewater wanted. The guarantees starting quarterback for the carolina panthers next year. He has not done a good job of that over the last month. No he hasn't joe. You're right let's get to late games broncos at the chargers why am i interested in this game because like football. That's about it. I mean the broncos have a bad offense noah fant putting up numbers. But you can't play any any wide receiver from denver right now. Jerry jeudy got alligator arms in that game. He had one cat for nineteen yards. Tim patrick who had been drew. Lock boy against buffalo. He goes for three for fourteen. No fans the receiver. I wanna play here. Melvin gordon only running back you can play here. Everybody's off opens may need give them the baltimore and then give. The ball doesn't do anything with it. You know filled once he's been zero for fantasy. All year melvin. Gordon seems to be the guy. The coaching staff prefers. He's an rb to no offense a low tight anti one. Then get out of dodge. The don't worry about the denver broncos outside of those two guys for the chargers on the other side well hopefully anthony. Lynn doesn't get in a position where he's gotta make decisions regarding the clock because he seems to embarrass himself each and every week with those decisions and it's and it's getting kind of pathetic at this stage The thing with the chargers though is you look at the tape last week. And you look at the tape. A what buffalo did with josh allen did against the denver broncos and. i think you could probably incorporate some of those same things because justin herbert is a very similar talent I understand what happened though with key now in last week you know he comes up and he says play me on thursday and maybe things tightened up for him. I mean i don't know what to say other than it was bad luck and those things happen in fantasy football. Keep an eye on his status for this game. If he ends up being a game time decision you might have to make a decision earlier because this is a late game so we have some injury situations to watch for the la chargers. but i think justin herbert. After last week's game the fact that he got back to putting a big numbers he runs for a touchdown. The game winning touchdown. Obviously he throws for three fourteen and two touchdowns he is back on the quarterback one radar for fantasy. But you have to look at the injury situation with keenan allen and see what's going to happen this week before deciding which wide receivers here you're gonna play. Though i will say hunter henry. The tight end has really come alive of late. Okay i've been asking you a bunch this over a bunch of this this question a bunch of times spit it out. Ross over the last couple of episodes is jalen hurts going to win fantasy championships for people. Eagles cowboys obvious at this point. And ross i made a critical mistake. A league where i was rolling tasting hill because i carson wentz's my quarterback and putting up numbers for the year but at one pretty i picked up tastes hill. A number of weeks ago. And i was and that was the right decision for me. You know he. He won four straight games but then it was unfortunate that for for me at least that drew brees came back for last week's against kansas city. And you know. I thought hey you know what i'm gonna do. I'm gonna try to sneak carson. Went up because then announced feeling hurts as the starter for yet we try to sneak jalen hurts waivers with zero dollar fab bid you know and somebody who was smarter than me in a one dollar bid and it's an it's gonna cost me a backpack championship. Because i had to roll with. Jared goff jared goff at its arable game against the new york jets. And that's just some of those things where you have to decide you. You play the game and you try to you. Try to play the game Smartly aggressively selectively aggressively. But i try to get to cute in these critical weeks and it cost me a matchup. Jalen hurts with a one me. That match up by himself last week against the arizona cardinals and i screwed myself up. Jalen hurts is absolutely winning people fantasy championships. And ross we're gonna talk about this in offs. We have all kinds of off season. Podcast obviously barring disaster at you know how phileas you grew up in eagles fan. You're you're from pennsylvania barring disaster. I don't know how carson wentz back at this next year like i. it's it's not just. This is not a decision that's going to be made only on film. It can't be you know. I don't think hurts hurts. Hasn't been like pristine okay. He's been very good but he hasn't been pristine but it's not a decision that could be made only on film and with with everything going on there. Jalen hurts barring disaster in these final two games going to be the starting quarterback for the philadelphia eagles. Obviously the rest of this year and into next year and for sure against the dallas cowboys. He is a fantasy option against that defense. You play hurts. You play miles. Sanders the problem for philadelphia here is jalen. Reagor got dinged up at the end of that game. Look like an ankle injury. He has been starting to come alive. They've been using him. Zach ertz caught two passes. That's not something you expect from sacramento. He caught two passes for sixty nine yards. Ertz is somebody we wanna catch eight passes for sixty nine yards so the passing game feeling hurts mixing in a round. But he's not mixing in around in a way where we can confidently use any of these guys for fantasy. The only two guys even though jalen hurts threw a three thirty eight and three touchdowns the only two receivers for philadelphia who had more than ten points in a quiz watkins. Raise your hand if you just walk for the first time and greg ward junior. Those aren't really the guys you wanna play for fantasy so for me philadelphia. Even with jalen hurts playing really good football right now. The only guys. I feel decent about for fantasy or hurts and miles sanders. And if i'm playing a tight end. Here i still prefer dallas her over his eckerd's what about on the other side for the cowboys dude. I said it joe. As soon as they said zeke wasn't playing i was like it's hurts the cowboys not at all because pollard has some legit juice. Yeah and zeke had been dinged up playing poorly sluggish all season long. I don't know if he's going to play in this week. I think dallas would be wise to just roll with tony pollard. Right now so keep an eye on that but a tony pollard goes. He's a high end. Rb two phillies run. Defense is really good. That defensive line has been playing great football of late. I'm keeping on the status of michael gallup because again. We're looking at affiliate defense. That was down. Three starters in the secondary and probably i don't know about area slight concussion protocol but probably will be down to more started writing cloud. Obviously he's on With the a. c. l. injury but about is dealing with an injury as well. So keep an eye on the status of michael gallup because as we saw last week this team you're going to be able to throw the ball against and when we Mentioned amari cooper amari. Cooper has struggled immensely with dairy sleigh in his career. Darius slayton owns amari cooper so if our if if darius slayton plays in this game it's probably not a great opportunity to use amari cooper. If very doesn't go. Fire amari. Cooper gimme at just two catches for ten yards last week against san francisco but philadelphia is really really thin in the secondary and ceedee lamb finally showed some some Last week catching five passes for eighty five yards. From andy dalton. So i think he would be somebody. I could look at. The eagles. don't have a lot of safety right now. I think that means you can stream you can take a look in stream. Dull scholz in this game moving on joe. We've got the rams and the seahawks. It's a gigantic football game in the nfc west. I can't wait. My boys been good for me on my fantasy team. Cam akers not good and the rams lost to the jets by the way. If you didn't hear how could you. By the way. I know seattle defense was one we targeted early. In the season they have improved significantly in the last five six weeks. How can you look. At what jared goff last week against the jets. Who had been the biggest pass will defense in the entire. Nfl and feel good about pint game against seattle. Like i mean got right now. Golf to me is somebody who like epitomizes quarterback purgatory and i think going to super bowl with them because i mean he went to a super bowl. I think if you go to super bowl. I think there's a reasonable expectation. You can win a super bowl with the guy we just saw the jets. Beat the rams. It's an any given sunday kind of situation and that includes super bowl sunday. But if you can't trust air goth go out there and put up numbers in a game where you're looking for playoff seeding against the new york. The owen thirteen new york jets. When you can trust them with numbers. I maybe goes for three fifty three touchdowns against seattle. Of course he could. He's done it in the past. He has good receivers. But i am just disgusted by what i saw last week and robert woods had a big game. It's kinda like minnesota in that you're like how do i sit woods and cop when i know they can go for twenty five fantasy points any given we even. If i don't like jared goff. It's kind of like that. But it's i just so disgusted by what i saw last week and i think rams fans should be utterly disgusted by what they saw last week. Cam akers is not gonna play in this game. Sean mcvay said it last night that he's going to miss at least week. Sixteen so i guess that puts darrell henderson in back in in As an to maybe you could fire up malcolm brown a flex but cam akers had been the one guy showing light in this offense. They gave him fifteen carries. No other player one more than one last week against the jets. But i i mean i just. I'm just disgusted. By what i saw that offense and it goes back to my point that i made weeks ago. You look at this offense and you know it's a good offense but it just seems like it's a it's a ferrari that is spinning its wheels. It's not going anywhere. It looked sexy. It's expensive and yeah. I'd like to sit in it but damn if this offense just sometimes looks like it can't get out of its parking spot. It's a it's frustrating. And i think a lot of that goes back to the quarterback and if they cannot protect that quarterback he's going to f. up whether it's against the new york jets one thousand nine hundred five chicago bears. He proved it last week. And i'm damn frustrated by it. Wow i sense that. Joe i can tell what about fantasy championship. I mean come on. What's more important than that now. Obviously i'm obviously joking but hawks speaking of offenses that seem to be spinning their wheels. Russell wilson goes for one. Twenty-one on twenty seven pass attempts against the team a streak they build a three score lead against dwayne haskins and pete carroll decided he was gonna play big dumpy carol football he was gonna turtle he was going to sit on the football. He was going to run the football if russell cooking right now with a microwave because they are not throwing the ball at. Aw chris carson his back there back to running the football. They're playing cold weather. Football and this is a nasty. La ram defense russell. Wilson dude you descend is jalen hurts gonna win fantasy championships for people. I play jalen hurts over. Russell wilson without a second thought right. Now that's the way. I look at these things with the way. Wilson's been playing with the way. Pete carroll's calling games like big dump. He football baby janet. That's what i wanna do. That's what he says. Chris carson is an rb one. Carlos hyde getting carries had a long touchdown. Run against the team de que. Metcalfe's going to see a hell of a lot of jalen ramsey in this game. Maybe it's a tyler lockett game. I know there's people out there were like. I can't sit russell wilson. He's got to this point but it's numbers haven't been great over the past month. and p. carroll is sitting on the ball is turning. He wants to run the football data out. Pete carroll wants to play. You can't teach an old dog new tricks and it looks like the fact that they They gave ross gave. Excuse me russ. They gave him control the kitchen over the first five weeks of the season. They have demoted him to sous-chef again. Ross that's amazing okay. We've got the titans and the packers but before you dive into that. I want everyone to know that if you're going to a game this week i kinda liked the titans. I'll be talking about that later. On on the even money podcast they're still cashing three and a half it.

Call one eight. Hundred gambler are joe. Titans packers looking forward that one sunday night. What do you think. Rossier former offensive lineman five teams. What was team seven years for four five team seven years. You like Richard in the soil games. I'm guessing a little Pounded out games like this lambeau field christmas week. Derrick henry v. aaron jones. This game is going to get all kinds of offensive linemen fired up and aaron jones. Obviously he took over last week to mall. williams went out now. My question becomes you know. I was reading bob. Mcginn who's covered the packers forever. Knows more about them than just about anybody in the athletic last week. And he's like. I have a hunch that matt before has been kind of limiting aaron jones to unleash him in december. Well jamaal williams. Getting hurt obviously contributed to that but aaron jones goes absolutely psycho last week against the carolina panthers going for a one hundred and forty five yards rushing and thirteen yards receiving with a touchdown in that game. This is going to be a game. Were matt leflore against his former team. Remember he was the offensive coordinator when the titans unlocked. Derrick henry two seasons ago. He's this is going to be a run. The ball game. Even though aaron rodgers might be the favorite for nfl mvp. I think they're going to run. The heck out of football doesn't mean you want to sit down. Rogers doesn't mean you wanna sit davante adams. Both of those guys were disappointments last week. You know if not the rushing touchdown. Aaron rodgers would have eliminated a lot of people from contention in their fantasy leagues. But devante adam still got robert onion back in the end zone. Those guys you wanna play. I understand that but this is going to be an aaron jones football game and on the flip side. it's going to be a dare camry. Football game got it. Make sense alright. What about monday night. I'll be there again as well. I'm every stadium in the middle of nowhere. Ross yes or gillette stadium. Excuse me let stadium. bills patriots. The bills joe. They look so good man. There also look so good right now on offense. I know baltimore starting to come alive. Baltimore isn't even in the playoff playoff picture. But they're not act. If the season ended today wouldn't be in the playoffs. I mean right now. Buffalo looks like the biggest threat. Kansas city right. I mean because it looks like this team can score with anybody. The question i have here and this is a big one. If kansas city wins on sunday against the atlanta falcons and there is no reasonably. They won't win that game. I know the jets. Just beat the rams Buffalo cannot advance beyond the two seat so buffalo cannot get a by kansas city. Wins that football game so my question is does buffalo decide. We are hot. you know. we're the talk of. Obviously there always the talk buffalo whether they're good or bad but they're they're like the talk of the world of football right now josh allen and sean mcdermott brian. Cabell is the next hot head. Coaching candidate and stefan. Dick got hurt last week. Do you the buffalo bills decide. Let's let's take it easy. We've wanted vision. We can advance beyond the number two seed. Pittsburgh is a dumpster. Fire right now. Let's just take a deep breath and prepare for the playoffs. That is an unanswerable question. I'm sure sean. Mcdermott is going to be asked about it this week. I'll be posting stuff on my twitter account. Fantasy points dot com about that but this is a game. I'm worried about ross. Because it is on a monday so the bills come out and decide. Hey we're going to sit josh allen. And they decided that the morning of the game you are asked because i sure is out one play cam newton but he might be the guy yet to pick up so just keep an eye all week of what the buffalo bills are going to plan on doing with their starters again. Remember stefan. dick's got dinged up last week. Doesn't look serious and maybe buffalo decides. Hey will rest starters next week but we want more week to get things to fine-tune maybe they decide that is. Well maybe sean mcdermotts like were we play the nfl. We're gonna play every week but we just don't know this team. We've got to watch the only thing i would say about that. Joe is i. Think sean mcdermott and the bills organization has been waiting a long time to really stick to the patriots. I think that's fair. They've won the division now. They have a chance in a primetime game. Everybody watching i personally. Don't think they're gonna show any mercy at all barris the patriots. So we'll see. I didn't know the patriots. You feel about the patriots by the way you know how they feel about the patriots. Anything on the patriots. I don't wanna play anybody here. I mean just i mean. Miami's defense is better than buffalo's. But like i mean cam goes for two of ninety runs for thirty eight yards. But he doesn't score touchdown. They didn't score a touchdown. Last week against hemi jakobi meyers. I think has been a guy who's produced enough where you can maybe use them as a wide receiver. Three but damian harris active. But he doesn't play sony. Michelle out of nowhere. Jakobi meyers a bus from me. And if you have josh allen maybe you pick up cam newton in the event that a buffalo decides to sit their starters but like you said you know you can make the argument both ways. We're just speculating here. But this game being on a monday is problematic for all. Those scenarios is outlined. Please check him out on twitter at f. g. underscored dolan or.

Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin

29:55 min | 11 months ago

2020 Week 14 (Part 1)

"It's time to eat four. Sit down and get ready to consume an abundance of fantasy football knowledge from ross tucker and joe dolan mood now on the fantasy feast and podcast. Yeah let jeep baby. It is a fantasy. Feast eating podcast. Show that so nice. We do it twice. I'm ross tucker former. Nfl offensive linemen five. Seven years bunch of podcasts. Ari did the business of sports. Andrew branded eller this week with trey wingo. I had that same andrew brandt on the raw soccer football podcast today. Going over the eagles quarterback situation among about a million different things dez bryant kobe. And everything going on so check that out just finished recording the even money. Podcast with steve. I was up six units last week. He was up five units last weeks. You don't wanna listen to that or watch it on youtube. Youtube dot com slash. Ross tucker. Nfl this is the fantasy beat podcast. It's the best fancy football podcast out there because joe dolan at f- underscore dolan. Joe is the rock star for fantasy points dot com use. The code feast finished strong. Win the play-offs win rings. It's about wins championships. About bragging rights get over the top. The next couple of weeks were fantasy points dot com code. Feast here we go. Joe no buys. We're not messing around playoff time for a lot of people. Maybe some people more next week. Whatever it's crunch time and it's patriots rams on thursday night and it's this is not really a very appealing fantasy game at least from one. End that being the end of the new england patriots cam newton the first quarterback to start and win a game with under one hundred yards passing in two straight weeks since brady quinn in two thousand and nine The the patriot passing game is just a disaster right now and cam. Newton hasn't played great. You also doesn't have any receivers to kill. Harry hasn't been lived up to his draft. Billing that goes without saying james white hasn't hasn't been effective out of the backfield probably because camps quarterback and they're changing some things. It's just a a team that i'm not real. I mean really. The only guy who feel good about starting for fantasy from new england s cam newton because he gets the rushing touchdowns and you know the problem with cam. Getting the rushing touchdowns is i would argue the guy on their offense who's been the most impressive. This year is back deeming harris but he has only two touchdowns because cam gets gets the work at the goal line so it look you mentioned it. It's playoff time it's week fourteen. There's nobody on by the new england. Patriots are just one of those teams. I would prefer to ignore at this point cam. Newton is viable starting quarterback but again you know we'll get nobody on by. How good do you feel about cam. Newton going up against that ram defense. I don't feel particularly good about the patriot side of the ball in this game. Okay let's get to the rams part of it. The one guy who i'm watching right now again is a five and a half point line. So close to a touchdown right now is the status of cam akers whose really starting to come alive. The last couple of weeks for the la rams the problem is he's dealing with a little bit of a shoulder injury and we're dealing with an. We're dealing with a thursday night game so short week I believe he's he's women. He was limited in practice on tuesday. Didn't practice on monday as of recording. We don't know if he's going to have a game designation. But just keep an eye on that because of makers can't play darrell. Henderson becomes a lot more appealing. You know Stefan gilmore still playing a pretty high level overall it if not to the level where we want defensive player of the year last season so i i don't know if he's gonna follow robert was i would assume not because the rams just move people all around the formation. They've started to really get into woods in cups hands more. So both of those guys are in your lineup quarterback jared goff in his career on thursday night. Football nine touchdown passes one interception. Everybody on earth hates thursday night football. You're part of football. Twitter ought to do this cancel them. The games were sloppy. Not jared goff jared. Goff comes out and says this week. Oh i prepare just like any other game while. It's worked for him nine touchdowns one interception on thursday night football but just keep in mind that patriots defense which got after justin herbert last week. This is a tough match-up for jared goff further rams. I'm i still think golf's a low end starting quarterback in this match up you have to play woods in cup as wide receiver to type guys. Keep an eye on the status of that backfield but again we are starting to get to the point. Where guys like tyler josh reynolds. These guys aren't even inconsideration because we have all thirty two teams points. What about joe. The vikings at the bucks bucks coming off the bye the box in that great run defense and you wonder. Is this type of game. Where now the vikings are going to have to continue throwing the football with adam feeling and justin jefferson and kirk. Cousins has been putting up numbers The last number of weeks and you know last week. It look bad at the at the start like her cousins. I think he had under one hundred yards passing very close to halftime and then things really picked up ends up throwing for three touchdowns feeling in jefferson wide receiver ones at this point. There's no two ways about that kyle. Rudolph's been kind of quiet even though irv smith has been injured. So he's not really in consideration right now and you're obviously playing dalvin cook. I think we talked on last week's podcast about how they were thinking. Hey we might need to start limiting dalvin cook. We might need to start resting dalvin cook. Then then alexander battisson has to get his appendix out and dalvin. Cook touch the ball. Nearly forty times last week. I would think he's still going to get a lot of work. The passing game is going to be pretty critical for dalvin. Cook this week though against that. Really nasty buck run defense. The the vikings are an easy team. Right now you're planning dalvin cook. You're playing field underplaying. Justin jefferson. I think jefferson and that passing game is more against the bucks than than the run game will be. I don't know if the vikings are going to treat it like that you know they're going to give the ball to dalvin cook. But i think kirk cousins is low end streaming quarterback this week as well for instance if you were to ask me kirk cousins even in this tough match-up or cam newton. I would take her cousins ten times out of ten. The vikings were six and a half point underdogs in tampa bay. That's good news for kirk cousins having to football. So what about the bucks off. The bye and the box is a team. They've been kind of like a more extreme version of the rams this year in which know you have these games where jared goff at Gets under pressuring looks lost. And then he had the gains re thrown for three fifty and four touchdowns. Tom brady has been kind of the same guy. this year. All these all these numbers that he's put up but it's been inconsistent. And now he's under siege and bruce arians calling him out the the thing that the bucks though is they've just kind of been team regarded. Start everybody for fantasy and suck it up. I think across the board evans godwin and antonio brown evanson godwin more like wide receiver twos antonio brown wide receiver. Three gronk is a weekly starter at tight end. It's kind of amazing. How tom brady has all these weapons. And this new system and this new team in this new city and he still goes back to the thing that makes them comfortable rob gronkowski. You can tell that. Rob gronkowski in a critical situation is tom. Brady's go-to guy for better or worse. So i'm gronk is in your lineup at right now as tight end one and tom brady against this viking. Defense isn't the quarterback one. I actually prefer him in this match up to her cousins You might have some some wobbles with that. But i think at home off the bye. This is a good week for the buccaneers to attack and at running back ronald jones is the only guy you can play right now. Leonard fournette really just has not has has not come through in the last number of weeks the arizona cardinals fuel broken right now joe and they're planning. It's a good giants defense. Yeah this off the board right now. Because we don't know about daniel jones a status frankly roster we know exactly what tyler murray. I is doing heat. He seems unwilling to throw the ball down the field and early in the season there was that problem. There is a couple of games early in the year where everything was a check. Down for tyler And early in the season. We're wondering why now. I think you can blame the shoulder injury. I think you can say he's not running as much. He's not throwing the ball down the field as much because he has that throwing shoulder injury but it is a huge problem right now because he is somebody. If you if you're advanced to this point for fantasy he is somebody who carried you to this point. So you don't wanna miss the train on murray. Getting back to the cuyler murray. Who wasn't throwing the ball well. Early in the season was carrying ten times for eighty five yards and a touchdown every week. You don't wanna miss the train on that guy. But if he's not going to be throwing the ball well we need him to run. That has not been the case. The last couple of weeks of fifty s is under fifty yards rushing the last two weeks combined. That's not gonna get it done. When kayla murray isn't throwing the ball down the field well and his his inability to throw down the field whether it's injury or something else or both has completely neutered christian kirk. Who in your lineup. Right now i think for like twenty five minutes in that game last week if one completion and it was on a complete busted coverage on the touchdown to dan arnold. So it's really rough to be sitting here telling you kinda murray. Somebody might have to make a decision on i understand. You don't want to miss that train and it look in the league's ride. Have kyle marine. I'm in the playoffs. He's the only quarterback on my roster. I'm living or dying right now. But i understand affleck. You're like man takes them hill last couple of weeks. He's been doing the rushing production. The kaaba murray hasn't been. I understand why you might have a little bit of an internal debate and in the backfield for them. I think kenyan drake rb to chase. Edmonds is an rb three. That's something to chase edmonds. By the way i know how offseason podcasts. Ross at ease. Somebody who i think. I'd ra- i'd like to attach a rocket ship to his back for how i feel about him next year but right now he's just a flex play. And you are playing deondraye hopkins despite the tough match-up james forever on the other side the giants that kinda got the run game going a little bit with wayne gelman what we need to know fantasy wise for the gene. Well if you want somebody if you want somebody in this receiving corps In your lineup. You'd better hope. Daniel jones plays evan ingram having trouble with drops. He's had them all year. He was at least targeted. He was targeted eight times by colt mccoy last week but he had an interception go right off his hands sterling sterling. Shepard was a huge disappointment in that game. Golden tate didn't do anything that would he. He wanted me a prop bet but he didn't do anything that would justify putting them in a fantasy lineup and dairy slate and has one catch the last two weeks. he's obviously not one hundred percent. I don't want any of these guys in my lineup. Daniel jones doesn't play him. Frankly their low end options. Even at daniel jones does play the guy. Feel good about for the giants as you mentioned well. Evan ingram's getting enough targets to fire in there as tight end one but the guy you mentioned that i feel good about his wing. And who's been kind of a revelation here for the giants. He's done a nice job on each producing low end. Rb one numbers. I would stick with winkelmann whether or not know jones. Plays this game okay. Chiefs-dolphins really curious to get your breakdown about this one. Joe it's mahomes to what do you got. Well i'm excited to see mahomes against the defense just as a football fan The i think everybody knows what to do with the chiefs at this point that the big question is is the running back situation. I really hope you survived. All on a on on sunday night because clyde edwards helaire was active but it was clear early in that game that he was only going to play in the case of emergency because he had an illness this week. I think it was a stomach flu. we'll see what they do on the in the backfield but at this point i don't know you can trust edwards alarm bells anything more than a flex. They'd just throw the ball all over the field. I think you downgrade slightly. Patrick mahomes in tyreek hill and sammy watkins given the matchup against these great dolphins outside corners. But my question. Hugh causes are you. Are you in week. Fourteen in your fantasy playoff matchup. And you're like oh homes against that good dolphin. Defence and brian flores. Better bench him. You're not gonna do it. It's it's it's not a great matchup but it's patrick mahomes. It's tyreek hill. One blake and change the entire game. The only really question you have with the chief says what am i doing. With backfield's dolphins on the other side thought played pretty well early on in that game. I was like oh boy. What's going to happen here with the quarterback situation and he wasn't putting up numbers and then he calmed down. He settled down he yet again. He has not thrown an interception as a starting quarterback or l. as any kind of quarterback in the nfl he hasn't thrown a pick has to But then you take a look at the fact that they had four hundred and six yards to goes twenty six to thirty nine for two ninety six. And he throws a touchdown pass and they score only nineteen points and the the the question is today. they didn't need to score more. Nineteen points okay. Cincinnati didn't gain two hundred yards of offense in that game but Devante parker had a tough match up with. william jackson. Did a good job on the good news for devante parker. I know we talked last week. About hey parker. You have sick. You want fitzpatrick quarterback the good news for parker's. He got eight targets. William jackson did a really nice job on him I i would think devante. Parker is gonna enough targets to be a wide receiver. Three in this matchup get sick. Was revelation made a one handed. Catch a great catch on a on a throw from two of that was a little far out in front of him. He scored a touchdown last week. I think he's on the tight end one radar and myles gaskin back in the lineup. I would think miami is going to try to run the football to keep the ball. They're gonna they're going to try to make this as low scoring game as possible. Myles gaskin gets a twenty three touches. He has one hundred. Forty one yards from scrimmage including a thirty five yard reception last week against the cincinnati bengals. He's on the rb two radar and look. I understand to play pretty well last week. He is i mean. Bottom of the barrel streamer again thirty. Two teams are playing this week. Thirty two different quarterbacks. I'd rather be playing. Somebody like jalen hurts into tonga. Loa simply because of hurts escape ability before we move on to the titans and the jags. I do want to make sure you're playing in needs to be draft kings. You're betting on games.

Call one eight hundred gambler titans. Jags are expecting points. Lot of fancy production. Joe what's happened to that titan. Defense i mean it was the titan. Mvp last year. Not ryan tannehill. Not derrick henry but dean pees the defensive coordinator because they offered up absolutely zero resistance to pick your may be last weekend assault. There was a tweet those bayer mayfield's an mvp candidate. Because i was like you've been watching this year. Maybe maybe last week he was an mvp candidate but not the whole season. The titans defense has been abominable and let's start with the jaguars given that. Mike glennon thing. I like about blind and is he will throw the football down the field and you know mike gwen instead of a couple of weeks ago. He's like. Hey hey i mean. I don't know what i'm going to get the start again. He's action paychecks. But he's like. I'm gonna i'm gonna throw the football and i'm gonna throw down the field and it's kind of resulted in some production for like colin johnson. Who is much more of a dynasty guy right now then he is a redraft guy. The disappointment was dj. Shark a coming back from injury. He had seven targets which actually led the jaguars last week but he caught the two of them for forty one yards that being said. I know you're gonna be like on done charge. And he's killing me and and all this look at what happened last week to this titans defense. They could not cover donovan people's jones. Okay i think. Dj charge is going to get open in this game. So i'd have him. He's going to be one of my favorite the place in this week. Because nobody's going to be on maybe doesn't match-up given his recent history. Nobody is going to be excited to play him. I wanna play. Dj chart in dfs this week and has a wide receiver. Three for redraft. And you know what to do with james robinson. You know what to do with him. He's in your lineup. Each and every week What would make me feel better about dj or even in a deeper league. If you wanna take shot on. Colin johnson remember viscous. Chenault hurt his thumb towards the end of game last week That could open up a room for keelan cole to potentially make some plays as well if viscous chenault cannot play. That's going to make. Dj charge just look all the more appealing to me. What about for the titans offensively again. The titans are a very narrow fantasy team against jacksonville. There's there's four four guys for the titans who are definitely in your lineup Derrick henry corey davis. aj brown. These guys are in your lineup. Right now ryan tannehill. He's been a top seven quarterback for fantasy this year. This is a good spot for him. He put up numbers last week. He is a very good starting option this week. The guy you have to make a decision on is the tight end and john. Smith's hurt And i know it was. It was slow coming last week because they got off to a slow start offensively but at the end of the game when tennessee was driving to try to make some plays anthony. I ended up picking up a five catches for fifty one yards. If johnny smith plays. He hasn't done anything late. That would make me excited to play him but if he doesn't go again. Anthony berkshires on the tight. End stream. raider cowboys bengals. The cowboys receivers got open. I mean the the. I thought the offensive line actually blocked pretty well gave dalton time. You remove the ball stalled out and ravens territory. Missed field goals. Don't miss gallup wide open one time etc. Yeah and look gallup. How real is what happened on monday night. Tuesday night against baltimore because he sees eleven targets he leads. The team scores the touchdown. It's his first touchdown since dak prescott got injured. How real is that. How much are you willing to bank on that now. That how much are you willing to bank on that. Now that it's week fourteen in the playoffs i. I'm a little skeptical to be completely honest with you. And i wouldn't consider him anything more than a wide receiver three noted it isn't andy dalton. Revenge game so you know. Andy dalton is gonna wanna come out here and put up numbers. I'm i still prefer in my lineup. A cowboy at wide receiver amari cooper as a wide receiver. Two and cbs lamb is a wide receiver three. And it's been like pulling teeth. But zeke elliott's a running back to last night We are recording this on wednesday. He go- he puts up. Ninety ninety five yards scrimmage. He catches four passes. It doesn't get the end zone but that's enough for an rb two for you. Keep in mind like i said earlier. I thought william jackson the bengals corner that are really nice job on devante parker last week. I wonder if he's going to make life a little bit. More difficult for more cooper than you might think in this matchup. Good point joe. Bengals offense design overboard gets objected. Like here's here's here's the problem. They're playing the cowboys. Who i mean. I was there an easier touchdown for somebody to score. Then that lamar jackson touchdown Easier touchdowns have been scored in the nfl leighton. Vander esch is still looking for lamar jackson. I mean he. He has absolutely no clue where he is The problem is with cincinnati. Whether the quarterbacks ryan finley of brandon allen brandon allen got hurt. What kind of numbers are they gonna put up here. Aj agent green again was cashless title. Board got a jack did. The run game is existent for cincinnati. Right now the only guy who i think i could even consider playing even though this is a bad a good bad. Defense is t higgins who seems to be getting targets from both finley or an allen. I mean roth frankly. I don't want to single bengal in my lineup in the playoffs. Understand you might need to tee. Higgins is bibles wide receiver. Three and geo bernard is a low end flex that's about it for cincinnati even get into this matchup. Okay two more games here in episode houston and chicago. Houston shawn watson can make anyone. You have a good fantasy day. Joe kikuchi out of bill o'brien doghouse and he is now like he's now they're number two receiver and he's kind of been frankly deshaun watson go-to guy even over brandin cooks who by the way Was check for concussion. In that game and i mean thankfully he was cleared to return. But you understand. The the risks with brandin cooks given how many concussions he's had in his career but kikuchi has been a go-to guy for shawn watson the last number of weeks. I'm fire him up as a wide receiver too. I really am i. I mean to shawn watson is at the point right now where he was able to build up confidence this year because what the even before willful went down to shawn watson was playing a what was was playing comparable us playing football. Not to say he's going to win. The mvp team's not good enough for him to do that but he was playing mvp level. Football and i think he's going to continue to attack. You know this chicago. Defense that surrender over four hundred passing yards to matthew stafford last week matthew stafford point without his best wide receiver in kenny golladay. So i think shawn watson can attack this team down. Bill and i think brandin cooks as a wide receiver to kiki kuchis. A wide receiver do and i anticipate. Though he probably won't be in many season long lineups. I think some some players going to try to catch Catch some heat and chase points with chat hansen. Who had over one hundred receiving yards. Raise your hand if you if you knew what team. Chad hansen was on before last week. Because i didn't i didn't know and he comes out and goes for one hundred yards. That's the kind of football. That the shawn watson playing right now. This passing game is viable. Because of the shawn watson the run game have to flex option. Sir david duke johnson. That i mean do call passes than i thought he would last week. David johnson did nothing as a receiver. He still look slow to me but he got me end zone and all And they'll they'll run the ball when they're when they're in the red zone but other than that. I mean this is this past per steam even without willful. The bears trubisky action. Did some positive things. randall pretty well. They put up thirty points and they still lost. What do we know about the bears from a perspective. Well if you if you have david montgomery in your playoff matchups your mvp. mitchell trubisky. Because david montgomery is a completely different back when mitchell trubisky quarterback and we discussed it a couple of weeks ago. They played forbidden under center more than they played. Nick foles and david montgomery just seems to be a much better runner. When the quarterback under center he understands where he's gotta go that he's got to get downhill. He had a fantastic game last week against detroit and houston has been a great matchup opposing. Run gangs david. Montgomery is a slam dunk. Rb one this week slam dunk Cordell at got involved a little biddy at ten carries and had a touchdown run again. Anticipate that he's going to be many season long lineups but he's a low end flex if need be allah robinson mitchell trubisky and he had been on the same page the last couple of weeks which is good news. He's a wide receiver. one again. the houston team. That doesn't have its top corner and bradley roby. So it's a great match up there and at the tight end position. Three straight weeks cole. has out snap jimmy graham. It appears that they are. They have seeded a work to coal. Command scored a touchdown last week. Probably not somebody who's going to be used in a whole lot of fantasy lineups but if you're dumpster diving for dfs and you are really really hurting at the tight end. Maybe aiden hearst is hurting you for instance and you're like everybody. The way wires picked clean but coconuts commits out there. You could probably give a look to him as well if you need mitchell trubisky as a streamer. He didn't really come through last week despite going twenty six to thirty four because they had three rushing touchdowns montgomery and patterson but he played well enough that i think you could take another shot on him this week against houston. So let's get to the last game denver carolina. Dj more tested positive. He'd be out. There's other guys like curtis samuel on the kobe. List that. I believe or just close contacts. So what are we need to know here. You need to know you play christian mccaffrey and then you wait the rest of the week to see what happens with this wide receiver position again. We just talked about houston being down top corner in bradley roby. Aj boy From denver was kind of caught up in the same the same supplement that will fuller and and and bradley roby tested positive for so. This is a better passing game matchup than you might anticipate but raw sitting here on wednesday. I don't know who's going to be on the list. Who's going to be off the kobe list. I guess right now. Robby anderson isn't on it so he's the safest guide play here but Unfortunately outside expecting christian mccaffrey to be back. We have too many questions on wednesday right now. The throw full support behind carolina. Panthers right what about denver. Last time out. Melvin gordon just looks better than phillip lindsay to me right now and like here's the thing about lindsay. He's one of those guys like every every couple of weeks he busts off a sixty ron. You're like oh my god. Why don't they use this guy more. And then the next week he's got fourteen carries for twenty six yards. They have really struggled to run the football. And you're beginning to see. Why they they sign. Melvin gordon they just don't trust lindsay in full on lindsay is just not a fantasy option to me. He doesn't catch passes on. He has too many bad games It should be on your bench right now. Quite frankly Melvin gordon is a low end rb to noah fant is viable tight. End one Drew lock is not playing well enough for me to consider streaming him but the receiver who i gravitate to with denver is not jerry jeudy who has gotten open quite a bit this year but has really struggled with drops. He has just one for five yards the last two weeks. By the way including a yagi kendall hidden quarterback we understand that but not on the radar. The guy who the guy who drew up throws to in the red zone his big play guy the guy you trust the most this tim patrick and tim patrick. Dante jackson's been banged up for carolina. Their top corner. He's been in and out of the lineup all year. I kind of feel like tim. Patrick is somebody who should be on the wide receiver three radar this week again. This is not a good fantasy team and in weeks when all thirty two teams were playing. You can avoid playing guys from bad fantasy teams like we talked about it with cincinnati. Like how. how are you excited about playing anybody from cincinnati denver. Just a slight tear above that right now but tim. Patrick has been drew. Lock go-to guy all season. It is not a bad match up. I didn't tim. Patrick get in the end zone here against carolina and really come through as a wide receiver three. You probably don't like fantasy football unless you are gonna fantasy points dot com and use the code fees. You probably just maybe like you. Just don't wanna make sure you win. 'cause everything joe's saying there's like five million times that fancy points dot com use the code piece.

I am oddly intrigued by this one from a fantasy perspective greg williams you legend greg greg williams now does greg williams ever have to buy a drink in east rutherford new jersey again. I mean jet. I jet fans texting me and large jets fan. That's literally what he calls himself and believe me. It is the most accurate nickname time. He's texting me. He is apoplectic. what are we doing. What are we doing because at the same time. The jaguars were in the process of blowing the game to the vikings and and he's like no no and then i look and i'm watching my tv. And i see my twitter go absolutely bonkers with what happened with that touchdown. The henry ruggs and look. I mean. It was one of the dumbest defensive calls. I have ever seen in my entire life. It was hilarious and jet fans are so happy it happened. Because they don't care. The embarrassment of owen sixteen will not last if they land their franchise quarterback. of course. i'm now talking about the future. And we want to talk about the president with the new york jets. And here's where we gotta start. We gotta start in the backfield. Frank gore tested for a concussion. Aleph that game last week tied johnson goes for a hundred yards in the backfield. So if frank gore can't play tai. Johnson is a viable flex option. But keep in mind. The jets are two touchdown underdogs in seattle. You're not going to be able to run the ball whole lot. Jamison crowder back from the dead. He scored two touchdowns with sam. Darnold quarterback denzel. Mims has a personal issue. I just hope everything is okay with him and his family Which which. I guess would mean persad airman and jamison crowder if denzel mims indeed can't play this week Are are going to be the top receivers for the jets. Crowder's a wide receiver three. I'd prefer to stay away from perriman. Obviously darnold's not an option and you will look at and see what's going on in the backfield here but this is one of those bad fantasy teams. We talked on the last five gas to. You're buying somebody here. You're hoping for like ten points in a pr and then you hit the road and say thanks for your service. It's it really. If i want to boil it down dip to the simplest terms it's jamison crowder bus right now. Yeah i i'm with you all right. What about seattle though so seattle. I'm sorry russell. Wilson you don't get to play against greg williams defense unfortunately for ross. He still gets to play against a poor jets. Defense that i mean time and time again though they have proven that they are stout against the run and abominable against the past the question is does pete carroll come out and said i don't care we're going to pound chris. Carson into line of scrimmage fifteen times to me look. Chris carson had thirteen carries last week in that terrible game against the giants. Russell wilson had forty three dropbacks. P carol i you can say whatever you want. Oh they need to let roscoe over bubba bubba. You still have to pay attention to what the coach does. P carol does. Not what russell wilson dropping back there fifty times and chris carson getting thirteen carries. That's not the way he wants to play that being said russell wilson's numbers have been poor. The last number weeks perhaps coinciding with tyler lockett. Being a little bit dinged up. This is a bounceback spot for russell. Wilson every single team including anthony lynn. Somebody else would love the probably pound the rock forty times a game. Every team has decided that throwing the ball against the new york. Dads is the best strategy though the box. Excuse me the cheese the patriot. A the chiefs have decided to do that. The raiders have decided to do that. The patriots have decided to do that. The chargers have decided every team's decided that throwing the ball against the jets is the best way to attack them. I can't imagine russell. Wilson doesn't put up huge numbers. I can't imagine the amac doesn't put up numbers in this game. I can't imagine tyler lockett doesn't have a good game. I'm starting my seahawks. Pass catchers across the board and chris carson. He is an rb one this week because i still think he's going to get the end zone. I think this is good game for him. It's worth touchdown. But i think this is a massive max. Bounceback spot for the seattle seahawks passing. Wow interesting okay. What about the colts and the raiders. Joe we'll philip. Rivers is still dinged up. He isn't practicing recording this on wednesday. He isn't practicing. But every indication is he's going to play dealing with that toe injury and he played really well against houston I think he's a viable streamer this week. He's got a couple of good match actually the next two weeks if you're looking for streaming quarterback for your playoffs rolling with carson wentz in a deeper league. I don't know i'm just undecided. Spitballing here. but philip rivers has matchup with the raiders. And then the texans again next week so too good matchups in a row philip rivers if you want to go after him. How about t y hilton back from the dead to good games in a row after doing nothing for the first for the first eleven weeks of the season. he's a wide receiver three still a little skeptical there. Michael pittman is a wide receiver. Three in this matchup against the raiders and finally finally jonathan taylor at busted out like if he cam akers on very similar kind of pass this year he has busted out i think he is finally earned the right to be the colts number one running back colts fans freaking out by the way. 'cause think taylor three for twenty yards in the early going in that game last week against houston and then they just went away from and then finally in the second half gave him carries the ends up with thirteen for ninety one. He scores the thirty. Eight yard receiving touchdown. He is an rb two. Nyheim hines is a low end rb two. It's a good spot for this cold offense which really was efficient last week against the houston. Texans okay. what about the raiders. Against the colts. Yeah darren waller pretty good Pretty much the only guy i feel. Good about on the raiders. Right now is darren. Waller i think derek carr could be under siege in this match up and you saw last week against houston. How important is deforest buckner to that defense For indianapolis and the rate or run game hasn't been good all year. They have they just haven't run the ball while they haven't blocked it well. Devante booker was a massive fantasy disappointment last week with just six point. One points in a p. Even with josh jacobs al. Keep an eye on the status of josh jacobs. But even if he plays he's an rb to against the colts and deforest buckner and that defense. He is so important for what they do on that defensive side of the football And if you're playing a wide receiver here the one thing. I will say nelson aguilar. The eagles fans four catches for thirty eight yards on. Eleven targets is a very very nelson agholor line. I will say this though. Their car overthrew him quite a bit at the end of that game. And barring a normal defensive call against the against the jets the raiders would have lost that game and derek carr would have himself the blame he would be able to say. Look i overthrew nelson alar couple of times potential touchdowns. He's somebody. I think you can still fire up as a wide receiver. Three but really the only guy i feel. Good about for the raiders. And i'm not breaking any news here. Is darren waller. Who had two hundred yards last week. Washington in san francisco. It doesn't sound good about antonio gibson toe. Joe just starting to excited about washington. Yeah and here's the thing with with with washington who's gonna run the football for them. I mean we about jd. Mckissic a lot on this podcast. This year he's not a runner at four five carries for eight yards in that game last week against pittsburgh and i know it's a tough defense but i mean he had five carries for eight yards. He is just not somebody who's going to make too many plays as a runner He's a receiver. But i think he's going to get a lot of work at in both both regards because peyton barber is not very good. I mean painting barbara fantoni. O gibson doesn't go. He is like an rb two on the low end. I if you're playing him. He's average two point seven yards per carry this year and you hope he gets in the end zone so that washington run game takes a huge hit Really disappointed in the line for terry mclaren just to fourteen on six targets. I think You look at that and you say. Hey i mean you move on to next week and see what happens and also logan. Thomas has been a guy who's been really Tickling alex smith's fancy rate. Now he caught all nine of his targets for ninety eight yards on the tight end one radar but really the loss of antonio gibson is going to make washington a one dimensional football team. Alex smith is going to have to drop back quite a bit. We're going to have to use thomas and mckissic in the passing game as surrogates for the run game. I like i don't know if there's very few teams have a bigger drop off between their rb one. And the rb two in the way mckissic antonio gibson to peyton barber is because we know mckissic's role is separate of that but antonio gives it peyton barber is just an apocalyptic downgrade for the washington football team. What about the niner's joe. They're one of those teams. Where you understand. How smart kyle shan hannes and still you sit there and you question like what are you doing. Why is jeff. Wilson leading your backfield snaps. Why does tevin coleman getting carries. He had two carries for negative eleven yours. Why is jerick mckinnon not getting football and all of a sudden why is ringing. Moster not getting the football. He's been producing ever since he's been in the lineup. I don't know it's it's it's bad. Their fantasy production really right now. Is the wide receivers brandon. I you can deebo samuel. Those are the guys i feel. Good about a depot samuel. Why didn't he get involved until the second half last week. It's just a bizarre situation for san francisco. I think i think Moster to wider. It's a running back to. I think you fire up brand. You can deebo samuel as wide receiver twos. I think they're both good enough to to look at in that regard. And then maybe you take a shot on jordan reed and scored a touchdown but man just a really really disappointing performance for san francisco. And sometimes i think kyle shanahan gets in his own way using all these different players. New orleans is at philadelphia. We'll start with. the eagles. jalen hurts their starting quarterback. I know you've tweeted about it a lot. Joe you are a fan of the team. Let's just talk fantasy here. Was it mean for any eagles. Is there jalen hurts. Is there a place for him somewhere. Probably not against that safety. I'm going. I'm going to borrow a tweet from somebody who's prominent on philly twitter and i wanna point this out. I am very much. Not a fan of the philadelphia eagles. I hate them more than anything. I really want them to win. But that's the way a lot of people feel about the philadelphia eagles right now. That's my boy. Dr pizza md. So yeah that's one of his. Yeah it's it's rough going in philadelphia right now. I like ross. I actually think jalen hurts is viable streamer. Because he's gonna run. And i think the worst potential outcome for the eagles right now is jalen hurts just makes a couple of plays by running around and extending the play and because the structures awful we've talked about it all year carson wentz seeing. Nobody's trying to take carson wentz applying while he's seeing ghosts he's under pressure constantly and even when he's not under pressure he thinks he is which is part of a huge problem with him but the the worst thing that could happen is jalen hurts. It has to play in this garbage. Offense makes a couple of plays by running around and everybody thinks everything's fix that being said if the alerts runs around. That's great news for fantasy because we saw we saw from cam newton. We've seen it for cam. Newton stone for under one hundred yards in two consecutive games. But if he gets in the end zone as a runner it helps you fantasy. We saw from tastes and hill two weeks ago. Froze for under one hundred yards against denver. Scores rushing touchdowns gets it done for fantasy so even in this tough match-up and it is brutal match. Offer jalen hurts against the number one defense in the nfl playing better than anybody right now. he can run around make. Some plays probably is going to execute within. Better timing. that wentz right now. Because he's just not seeing ghosts carson wentz but when it comes to the eagles i want nothing to do with the wide receivers. They still don't know how to play them. They're not they're not. They're playing on jeffrey over travis. Which i guess. Doug peterson said this week might not happen. It's stupid jalen reagor. Didn't do enough as just one target. He caught it. But he's not in your lineup. Right now the guy who i think i trust as a receiver in my lineup is dallas. Tight end he's he's a free nature of the eagles lose akers this off season and then miles sanders. Apparently doug peterson says. Hey we gotta do a better job. Getting off sanders football. You think you think you haven't done all year your all year so Just just a disaster miles. Sanders is an rb to jalen hurts will give them a spark. I just don't expect it to be pretty in this game. Ross i thought tastes as some hill. Look pretty good this time. Joe you know maybe. They came out with the comments against by the way. That's two times against the falcons that tastes bills played really well and then against denver. They obviously the tastes them. And sean payton both came out with the comments. After the denver game look unique circumstance. We're going into a game where the team doesn't have a quarterback. Don't do anything to lose. This football game tastes again through for under one hundred yards and they won that game by four touchdowns so Jim schwartz's eagles. Defence has struggled. As long as i can remember against running quarterbacks i anticipate tastes hills going to have a couple of long runs in this game. Michael tom dairy slay. The top corner for the eagles is banged up. So that's good news for michael thomas who's had to really good gains with ill at quarterback alvin kamara is an rb one with davis. Murray is a flex option. And you're playing tastes them hill. You're playing michael. Thomas and i think jared cook as a low end tight end option is on the radar but i expect some hill in the event drew. Brees doesn't play and it doesn't look like it will take some hill. We'll be putting up to numbers this week against philli. Let's get to the falcons and the chargers dude with the chargers offense joe. I wonder if i mean first and foremost easy thing you could say is justin. Herbert is hitting a rookie slump. But then also you look at bill. Belichick's numbers against rookie quarterbacks. And that's kind of just what happened and justin. Herbert had no help last week. They just completely lost the plot in that game early to me. That was a throw the takeout kinda game. This is a rebound spot. you're playing. The atlanta falcons defense. That's been carved up the last couple Couple of weeks out including twice by taste hill. This bounceback spot for justin herber get him in your dfs. Lineups qb one. This week keenan. Allen mike williams hunter henry austin ekeler start all this bounceback spot for justin herber. Cry i mean. There's i can't imagine being more thrilled to look at the other side of the football and seeing the atlanta falcons defense and the way by the way they've been good against the run. Have the falcons in general. They've had a couple of spots where they've gotten carved up but in general they've been better run in the past. I can't imagine for just in herbert. A better option to be looking across the field in after struggling against the patriots than the atlanta falcons defense. Let's blow spot for the charters interesting. What about the falcons. Offensively ignore the backfield. Ito smith left with concussion last week. Todd gurley stinks. A brian hill. Hasn't done anything. The only way. I'm playing anybody at brian. Hill is the star because girly and smith can't play. Just ignore the backfield matt ryan. It's like pulling teeth with this guy but he managed to get it done For fantasy in in a small way thrown for two seventy three touchdown against that saints events. This charge of events is not the saints defense. Calvin ridley goes for over one hundred yards against the saints. Julio jones in his return six for ninety four. Both of those guys are in your lineup. I'm benching hayden hearst at this at this point he's not one hundred percent maybe russell gauge a wide receiver. Three but really. It's ryan ridley in jones. And i think that's where you're atlanta falcon focus should be right now. Packers and the lions. It sounds like the andre swift might be back for the lions doesn't have the migraines anymore. Joke yeah. I just think it's bizarre. I mean these doctors. No more than i do but i think it's bizarre that they pulled him out of the concussion protocol but the rings on separate to somebody could probably tell me i'm not really sure Look at kenny. Golladay is not practicing on wednesday. That to me is not a good sign for his availability. He hasn't practiced in weeks. You would think they try to get them in at least limited sessions if he's going to be able to go but as of right now. I am not expecting kenny. Golladay to play in this football game if the andrea swift plays he is a star He he he deserves a chance to really take that back over again. The gm's gone. The coach is gone evaluation mode. Sometimes a little bit different when it's a lame duck staff but the andre swift was a breakout star before that mysterious concussion you play marvin jones in this game. Even though gyro alexander you might catch a shadow there and tj hopkinson. Who has quietly been one of the breakout fantasy stars of this year because he hasn't scored a bunch of touchdowns but he has been used the number three tight end and overall scoring this year. He is in your lineup. And i think you can use matthew stafford. As a low end quarterback on in what could be a high scoring game packers so davante adams unreal. Aaron jones unreal aaron rodgers unreal. What else do we need to know about. The the packers robert is unreal. He's scored in three straight games. He can be in your lineup as a tight end one. Marquez valdes scantling. Dropped like a seventy yard bomb from aaron rodgers against the eagles last week. So you wonder if allen lazard is now going to take over as the wide receiver to put him on the wide receiver three radar for fantasy. But you've kind of nailed ross. It's those three guys are definitely in your lineup. The to errands and davante adams. And then i think you could consider tanya again. I don't know how many how many tight ends out there. I'd start over robert robertson but it might just be on one hand that i'd count them right now. Aaron rodgers trust him in the red zone. We know how important trust is for aaron rodgers as he continues his. Mvp campaign are the next game. Joe is gonna be our feature draft kings game of the week. It's the steelers all this can be and the bills. They both played monday. The bills are actually favored by two and a half points. It's crazy i mean. That's the order. Were just undefeated until today. Today's ago and now the bills are favored over the buffalo bills. By two and a half points. The total is forty six and a half all of these numbers of course courtesy of draft kings. We had josh allen who won a lot of draft kings daily fantasy people this week going off against the san francisco forty niners. We also have james conner. Who might be a sneaky. Play this week at draftkings. Since he's off the kobe list. Yeah and that that buffalo run defense has been a problem this year. They have matt milano the linebacker back which is a big help. You know pittsburgh look look what happened against washington. I mean the tight end. Got him across the middle and you know the bills. Don't really have a tight end that you can go to With any sort of consistency. But they do have cole beasley in. Kobe's been go-to guy for for josh allen. I really like them this week. allen downgrading allen from last week. Okay he was exceptional against the forty niners. The steelers are a different beast. But that's steeler defense has had some injury. Bud dupree being injured you. You wonder if things are just starting to get to to kind of unravel for pittsburgh gear at this point for buffalo. Look you understand. Devon's single tearing. Zack moss running backs. They're their flex options. They don't run ball they don't i mean it's just part of what they do. It is not a foundation of what they do beasley and step on digs absolutely. Must be in your lineups. I am not benching josh allen under any circumstances whatsoever he's not getting benched from me and a look at an gabriel davis the rookie wide receiver at ucf. He is maybe a decent the best option. If you're playing on a slave that includes this game as a cheaper option. He is exit. The future i think he might be. I think they might cut john brown after the season enroll with him but the buffalo bills are narrow. Fantasy team allan digs beasley. You love those three guys else here. They're kind of in the flex conversation. Then you've got for pittsburgh. I don't know what's going on with these guys dropping. All these passes rothlisburger says he's a throw more catchable passes hit him in the hands. Yeah i know. But that's good veteran quarterbacking. You know it's not catchable it's wildly. The johnson's dropped. Its on a passes. He gets a lot of targets though. i mean. what am i supposed to say. The johnsons catching catching eight passes on twelve targets. All right if he doesn't drop the ball maybe he catches nine passes. But that's good for fantasy. Still playing him The guy who. I would downgrade for pittsburgh in. This game is chase claypool. Just because i have an inkling that he might be the guy if if buffalo chooses selectively shadow with trae white. I feel like chase. Claypool would be the guy So he's a guy downgrading as a wide receiver to juju is a wide receiver Seven catches on one. It's seven catches for twenty eight yards juju But he got ten targets so he's a wide receiver to eric. Ebron has been a guy getting just a massive amount. It's orbit's last number weeks now. He's somebody dropping the ball to but you kind of have to put him in your lineup. And i think ben with the steelers complete and utter inability to run the football A good betty passes this game. Whether james conner plays and he's expected to or not james conner is an rb two. They really need him because they cannot run the ball at all. I can't remember the last time. I saw steelers team if ever that was incapable of running the football as the steelers. You don't think conor makes the difference does I think he's an rb to look. Obviously you're not playing. Benny snell or anthony mcfarland. If conner can't go after that crap that they threw out there last week he's an rb to though i mean they ran it well early in the season but it's just been kind of like pulling teeth with connor thing about wiscon- or is he does contribute in the past as well which helps matters last game. Joe it is monday night. It's a good one the baltimore ravens who i saw last night against the cowboys. And the cleveland browns. What are you gonna baker mayfield in cleveland browns. While i don't. I wouldn't expect that to continue this week against baltimore. Just just to be fair. baltimore absolutely victimized baker mayfield in week one. I know that's a. That's that's a lifetime ago. But you remember that. Game kevin's defence. Even the regalia and baker mayfield goes twenty one of thirty nine for one eighty nine. I think through it on its first bass in that game It's not a good spot for baker. I would not be playing him this week. jarvis landry. I think is the receiver. If i'm playing receiver here who i would consider. He's had a. He's kind of like t y hilton. We discussed on the last podcast. He's had two big games after doing absolutely nothing. I think you consider him here. But ultimately i think i think cleveland's gonna want to run the football. It's a downgrade across the board kareem. Hunt hasn't done really much of anything. The last number of weeks. Since nick got back so chubs and rb one hunts the low end rb to jarvis. Landry is a wide receiver three but other than that. I don't know argue playing donovan. People's jones in your fantasy playoffs. I don't think so. I don't think so. So it's not a good fantasy spot for the cleveland browns. Though i mean kevin's danske is i m. Maybe he's the front runner for coach of the year. Right now he should be. He's obviously in the conversation. He's done a really good job but it's just not a good spot for their offense. What about the ravens. And what you saw tuesday night. Joe gus edwards. Gus edwards lost weight and has juice to him. Yeah and i wonder if they're finally like phasing out marking room because no else epsom juice ovens and like it's just frustrating to me because like i am not trying to insinuate that i know more than gregg. Roman i don't however it drives me like. Jk dobbins it seems like every single time anecdotally of course but every single time. This guy's touch football this year. It seems like it goes for ten yards and get them out of their tongue justice hill in. I mean it doesn't make sense to me. It should be it should be dobbins and it should be gus edwards. We can be in fantasy we can deal with two. We can deal with you guys in the backfield what becomes three or four. We were talking about with san francisco then that becomes a problem okay. I don't want to deal with three or four guys in the backfield abram. Thank you for your service. You've had a wonderful career. Maybe we can get you a ring this year even though we struggled but goodbye. We need gus edwards. We need jk dobbins to be the top two guys and baltimore. Not that i trust. Greg gregg roman to do that. But both of those guys dobbins dot. I consider more of an rb to edwards is a flex. Ingram is on your bench lamar jackson congratulations. Lamar ross with his performance. Monday night he had to accomplishments he tied dak prescott for a number of top five quarterback finishes this year. Dak prescott hasn't played since we five. And he tied gardner minshew new number of top twelve appearances this year. Congratulations lamar jackson. One of the biggest plus for fantasy football but he played a fantastic game And fresh off Ovid lists. I thought the touchdown throw to hollywood. Brown was his best season. Kind of a kind of across the field. Dropped into a bucket. It was finally good to see those guys get on the same page on. We'll see about the status of mark andrews who still in the covid list as of today. Ed hollywood brown with no denzel ward. He's a wide receiver three. I'm not. I'm not for online support behind him. Just because he's touchdown in that game. I can't do that but he's a wide receiver. Three and i want to check on the status of mark andrews lamar jackson. If somehow you survived and got to this point with the mark jackson as your quarterback. I don't know what you would have seen on a on a on tuesday night. That would have changed your mind about starting him this week. Mba's arguably his most impressive game of the year. Well what changes. My joe is nothing. I need to go to fantasy points dot com like.

I appreciate you guys adjusting your schedule for me. But what. ross. We got we got. We got a win. It's week sixteen. Your fantasy leagues are over and let me just get to a general point right now. I don't know how the new nfl playoff format is going to affect playing time. Because there's only one by so there is now a significant difference between the first and second seed as opposed to the second and third seed and when there were more teams competing for that second seed in that second by in years past i would think there would be. Were teams resting. Starters you look at you know a team like potentially buffalo pittsburgh which are now essentially not going to be able to advance to the number one. See barring collapsed by kansas city to something happen with those teams this week. That's something we're going to have to monitor throughout the week. Now for pittsburgh. I don't know what resting starters is going to help. That team will get to them when we talk about the steelers but It's just something to monitor when teams could be potentially locked into that number one. See i think the whole point of this was the. Nfl wanted to avoid teams locking themselves into buys and they thought by only having one team getting the by while already afc when you have one team running away with it that becomes problematic. So we're going to have to talk about that when we get to kansas city in buffalo expert. Yeah because there's really not that much of a difference between the two three or four seats especially when there's no fans so home field advantage isn't as much of a thing so that's a really really interesting point joe. Well let's start with the game. That is on christmas day. And yes joe will be setting with. I believe is a world record for calling a football game every single day of the week in the same season. Ira here monday. Tuesday wednesday thursday saturday and sunday. The only thing i needed in my arsenal joe was friday. Your boy is calling the vikings and saints on christmas day boom every day of the week. It's been all right biking's narrow fantasy team say breezes back talk to me. Well the saints The question is how does drew brees resemble the second half drew brees in that game last week against kansas city. Or is he the first after breeze the one who started that game like oh of seven with an interception he obviously got into a groove and finish the game fifteen thirty four. That is not a number. We expect to see from drew brees but he ended up throwing three touchdowns. It looks like he needed. Time to get back and get acclimated. Just keep an eye on his status this week to see if there's any soreness him Alvin kamara you would think with brees back. His usage is going to go back through the roof. He led the team with six targets. Last week. In that game against kansas city on tasting hill now vulture touchdown after. Thanks for your service. As a top five fantasy quarterback now you're back to being vulture emmanuel sanders the number one receiver with michael thomas on i r. I mean really when it comes to the saints. I think you could consider breeze as a lower end. Qb one i think kamara is obviously super high end. Rb one emmanuel sanders is a wide receiver. Three and yet. Take a shot on. Jared cook as a tighthead but with no michael thomas the saints do not have all that many appealing fantasy players right now. Despite the total of this game being fifty two but with the saints a seven point favorite. You would expect that alvin. Kamera's going to get his work. And i would love to be able to say a latavius. Murray is going to get his work as well. He did score last week but it was not in the way you anticipated. It was a twenty four yard reception against kansas city. He had only seven opportunities in that game. He is a prayer or be free flex option but with the saints. A seven point favorite in this game. You might think that he could get some in the superdome on christmas day. Okay on the other side. The vikings. I'll ross i it. It just felt like this was coming all year and despite adam feeling and justin jefferson having phenomenal years and jefferson by the way against chicago. A good game. He caught eight passes for one hundred four yards. Adam feeling to for eleven. Though he did score a touchdown was a killer for me in some of my leagues and the unfortunate thing is with the way we know. Those two guys can produce. You can't sit so if you managed to weather. The storm of adam feeling catching only two passes. Obviously it's a very good spot theoretic. Theoretically it's very good spot because it's a fifty two point total and minnesota's seven point underdog. But we know that saints defense has been very very good lately although jalen hurts and certainly patrick mahomes have exposed cracks in that defense the last couple of weeks. I just don't know if kirk cousins has that kind of dynamic ability that hurts and clearly mahomes so this is going to be an alvin. Cook game you gotta play jefferson. You've gotta play feeling. You can't avoid doing that at this stage but kirk cousins. I think there is a chance you view this as a game or maybe he can turn the ball over two or three times saturday. We've got three games a tripleheader saturday. December twenty six starting with the bucks and the lions while with the saint dropping. Back to back games now to philadelphia and then to kansas city. There is new life from the tampa. Bay buccaneers it. Looked like that division was a rap. Not not any more a tampa. Bay's got shot here and obviously they a well. I dunno if you've ever seen this before. Ross but tom brady came back for three. Scores down against the atlanta falcons last week. Ever see that before. We're so he He comes back and he throws for three ninety against atlanta. And if you have this tampa bay offense new again weathered. Some bad fantasy storms With with this offense not clicking you have flopped the nuts you have flopped and nuts in the two playoff weeks against atlanta's poor defense and then against detroit's abominable defense. Tom brady and this passing game. I'm no it has been like pulling teeth. But everybody produced last week against atlanta mike evans goes for one. Ten antonio brown catches his first touchdown passes returning to the nfl. Chris godwin catches it's touchdown pass gronkowski. Even though he only had three catches for twenty nine yards tied for the team lead with seven targets. This is obviously a situation where you want. Be playing brady. And his pass catchers in this game and then we have to keep an eye on the back field. Is ronald jones going to be back from that. Pinky surgery leonard fournette. It wasn't pretty but he scored two touchdowns any caught. three passes. came through for you if if you had to start letter. Four net in week fifteen. What about the lion stafford played was valiant. Then he went out. I think he'll play swift at a nice day. Where you think. I mean that game was out of reach at the end in tennessee had just pounded them all game swift swift an rb. One think i thought the thing that i loved about the andre swift by the way. They're they're ten point underdogs in this game. So they're going to be throwing on the thing. I love about the andrea swift was. He fumbled at the goal line and at the beginning of that game and darryl boever went back to him and i wonder would matt. Patricia have done the same. And i suppose that's an unanswerable question but darryl bebel went to his young guy and utilized them and used them and i thought it was a great showing Obviously at this point. I don't expect any golladay to be back. I don't know why lions would bring them back Stafford i wish i wish matthew stafford would have an opportunity to play for a winner. That's a discussion in the offseason. Can detroit bringing the right coach. Because i don't think they'll move stafford but at this stage against this defense. I think i'd want to avoid everybody with the exception of the andrea swift and marvin jones. And of course tj hopkinson who lost a fumble and only had four targets in that game. It was a really poor time for teacher to have his worst game season last week. Yeah was all right. Niners and the cardinals four thirty pm. Is this game amazon. Only wow people are going to be freaking out. Four thirty pm eastern on saturday looks like it's amazon only. Yeah and it's a four and a half point line so this should be a tight game. san francisco. You look at the backfield. And i think it's jeff wilson time because moster he said by ankles not going to be the same as been dealing with a high ankle all season long. So i've been jeff wilson as the guy you're gonna wanna roll with year for san francisco brandon. You obviously has been a target hound. The last number of weeks with deebo samuel hurt. What are the chances deebo. Plays in this game if he does. I don't wanna use them I suppose san francisco could designate. George kendall to play in this game again. I don't know why they'd risk it in a law season. Let george go get to the offseason. You've been the most entertaining professional football this year. Glenn get to the offseason but this is one of those guys where week sixteen. i typically. don't wanna play guys who've been out for a while. They're coming back from injury. I wouldn't play deebo. Samuel for instance but the tight end position is so narrow. That if george kittle does play in this game i can advocate using them zone. Gave up a couple long receptions to zach ertz of all people. Last week you sacri- needed some oxygen after run twenty yards down the field Last week and i think i could advocate playing towards kickoff he goes. I just don't know. If i were san francisco y i would play caitlyn this game but there is an opportunity. He goes but nick mullins. You could probably find a better option this week unless to act league. Obviously a cj beathard came into that game late. Maybe he gets the start. It's just a bad situation here for san francisco and twenty twenty one. I don't think john lynch and kyle shanahan are at risk losing their jobs. Those guys should be focused on next season. And we're going to have to keep an eye on what the op- op- the injury status for some of the players are but jeff wilson's the guy i'm focused on. When he gets carries he produces. It can be one this matchup right cardinals man. Kyle got it going. The receivers very impressive and then you got the running back situation. There's a lot of guys. I feel on the cardinals that people have on their fantasy teams. Joe yeah deondraye. Hopkins was awesome against philadelphia. Both the honoring hopkins and larry fitzgerald. I liked the andre hopkins in that matchup because philly was down three starters in the secondary including darius slay but then you look at the the the entree hopkins touchdown against philli. And you're like dude. Darius could have been there because it was good coverage and he still holds it in. I mean i. It was an unbelievable catch. Keiler is getting hot at the right time. We mentioned last week that it looked like he was feeling good because he ran thirteen times. What does he do against philli. He goes for eight runs. Any gets back in the end zone so he's producing big numbers with his legs and with his arm carrying you into your fantasy championship weeks. Thank you kyle. By the way through for four hundred and six yards in that game three touchdowns. Kyle's in your lineup chase edmonds in kenyan drake. Both kinda of rb twos in this match up there was a. I don't know if you're seinfeld guy. Ross but I think a lot of people in fantasy hate the drake. after last week Because philadelphia really bottled them up. But chase edmonds gotten the end zone and men's is more of a flex after what tony power did to the forty niners last week. I would consider kenyan drake on the rb two radar this week but the cuyler murray throwing for four zero six. Here's the problem and not that he's somebody you're playing in fantasy championship but kyla murray goes for four zero six and christian Kirk has thirty three yards. I mean what what's going on here with this guy. It's all hopkins the backs. Even dan. arnold the tight end get in balkars and carcass. Thirty three yards. Not somebody you want to be playing in a fantasy championship game. There's no two ways about that saturday. Night is the hawaiian showdown to tongue of iowa. And the dolphins against marcus mariota and the las vegas raiders. So there's a number of reasons why this'll be our draftkings feature game number. One raiders are are two and a half point underdogs number two. It's a forty seven and a half point. total number. Three everybody in the state of hawaii will be watching number. Four draught kings. Has that saturday slate. Where you can pick guys from the three games on saturday over a draftkings fast and have a blast number four joe. Please tell me that somewhere out. There there is a fantasy championship. That's going to be one by marcus. Mariota bali dummy that that is a possibility. I wouldn't advise it because of how. Good miami's defenses But there's going to be two quarterback leagues. There's going to be somebody who. Hey you know my quarterbacks were carson wentz. And i was riding taste some hill and and now i'm stuck out or i had derek carr and i'm stuck and marcus. Mariota has the legs and look. I know the raiders. Have fallen out of contention. This game matters to miami to certainly but don't tell marcus mariota. This game doesn't matter because marcus mariota is. Now he's elapsed generational type prospect number. two overall. Pick obviously got unseated in tennessee. Tennessee made by far the right decision. Go with ryan tannehill marcus. Mariota is kinda shamed. And all what happened to mario number. Mariota remember when people were talking. James vs marcus and neither guys a starter. Now marcus mariota is trying to stick in the nfl. Marcus mariota wants to extend his career. He wants to get a shot to be a starter again. So don't tell. markets. Mario game doesn't matter the problem. Is marcus mariota. He's playing miami. Dolphins and this defense is nasty. And when it comes to the. Las vegas raiders. Here it's a total of forty eight which isn't very high. It's it's not a match up where i am excited about playing anybody. With the exception of darren waller and probably in rb two for you. We were over. The josh jacobs fantasy. Trolling people have been extra nasty to fantasy players. That you're most by the way gotta got some crap for getting hurt. God forbid i mean guys playing a contact sport. He gets hurt so fantasy players are extra angry. Don't do that stuff. But josh jacobs rb to darren waller. I'm excited about but mariota against this defense. He looked good last week. There's no two ways about that. He did look good. But i'm going back on the years. I'm going back through the film and the recent performance in tennessee that suggests. I don't wanna play this guy against a really good miami defense. What about people that have guys like. Devante parker maybe a myles gaskin unbelievable golfing dribble to beat the patriots. Without any of those guys i. It's just a testament to brian flores. He's done what. What a job chan gailey. He's done with two and look. I know two of those for one. Forty five in that game on twenty six pass attempts. I don't really care. He wasn't throwing the ball to anybody. There was nobody getting who was worth a day. I'm getting targets in that game. I mean lynn. Boden had seven targets. Derm smile at five targets. I mean these are not guys you playing in a must win game which my at my question for miami is even if myles gaskin back why do you go away from self on augment. He runs for one. Twenty two and a touchdown coming off shoulder injury that somebody who i think's rb two but you do want to keep an eye on who's available in that game maybe maybe it just knocks down if gaskins available because rita had a great game was well known for twelve eighty. Six amac game Sticky parker mike. My question is truly was that some gamesmanship from flora's against his former boss of bellichik. Hey these guys are questionable. They might play and then they don't They got some women to practices in. Especially sixty. And i wonder if miami looked at this and said i think we can beat the patriots. Who can't score points. I think we can beat them without guessing in parker and they wanted to get him ready against a worst defense. i think. Maybe that's a possibility here in this game Gives if he goes is a tight end. One you've been producing big time numbers with to a. That is not been the case for devante parker. If parker goes i think he's more of a wide receiver three. Because i liked the matchup but the numbers have not been there from to a with devante parker. But of the too hawaiian quarterbacks in this game maliki maliki and mauka rossa. Melika miki maka Completely botched that here with the christmas tree behind me. My wife's probably laughing at me in the other room of the to hawaiian quarterbacks in this game too was the one i would play for fantasy. If i need one medically gay maca is. I don't know the words. I just know that i'm working. It's awesome awesome. Let's get to some sunday games. This is interesting. I was gonna say carolina washington but they just moved that game. So i'm not going to get into that. Let's do colts steelers. While i'll let you decide where to start on that one. The pittsburgh steelers are just utterly broken right now and i mean there was some talk that mason rudolph was going to replace ben rothlisberger in that game. Ross here's the thing we know. Ben's orm isn't what it used to be but watching the game last night against cincinnati. I mean cincinnati's coming out. And they're just flat out full and ben rothlisberger with some coverages. He's throwing the ball directly to defenders. He doesn't see safeties coming out from over the top. He doesn't see linebackers dropping back into coverage. I mean the a ben rothlisburger. Watts was making rookie. Mistakes in that game so you you put that on top of the arm strength struggles. How how can you feel good about this team right now. Offensively i mean it's terrible and you know i thought it was convenient ben decides. Hey i'm coming back from my eighteen season. My question is the them to after after. What's happened these last couple of weeks. And i look at this two ways. I think ben could probably benefit from physical and mental. Break right now. But can the pittsburgh steelers afford to rest starters right now when they're on a three game losing streak especially after losing to one of the three worst teams in the nfl with ryan finley at quarterback. I don't know this could be a bloodbath out there against indianapolis defense after what i saw. Cincinnati due to. Ben rothlisberger last week. So benny snell by the way should be the running back right now because pittsburgh finally was able to run the football and that game. James conner has been injured. I would think that that's something that's going to work for them. So i think they should keep doing diontae. Johnson gets targets. Whenever he's out there. I don't know how you could sit him. But who else on pittsburgh you feel good about. We discussed this last week. Ross six weeks ago you and i were in lockstep. I think this seems to the super bowl now. I struggle to see them winning a playoff game. It's it has changed dramatically. there's no question. What about on the other side of the coulter. All of a sudden high scoring bunch. The they've made the switch in the backfield I think it all the quotes that i read last week. Hey we wanted. Jonathan taylor to seize this backfield. He's done it. He is officially done it for the first time all year jordan. Wilkins did not play a snap in that game. So this is jonathan taylor. This is nine times. These guys are in that backyard. Taylor is hammer rb one. It's been a week winner. you're obviously playing him igniting. Heinz you can use as a kind of a flex option. But it's taylor's backfield for sure t white hilton has come alive a little bit for for the colts zach. Pascal scored two touchdowns last week. But hilton's really the only guy. I wanna play in the passing game. I really would prefer not to use. Philip rivers but with pittsburgh's injuries like the edge rushing. You know ryan finley rushes for a touchdown against them. Derek obviously Excuse me It was derek want got hurt but they've had injuries on the defensive side of the football that if really limited them it's not as scary defense as it was a number of weeks ago so i think you can say philip rivers hot right now and i'm gonna keep riding him. Although i prefer probably in my in my reference. Pick up somebody else. Off the waiver wire falcons. And the chiefs falcons matt ryan uncanny ability to put up great numbers in a losing effort uncanny and did it without julio jones for the first time all season but let's look there is in that first half he was playing the game of the season and then of course. Then tom brady happened. Calvin ridley in your lineup. Russell gauge has been hot with. Julio jones injured. There's nobody in this backfield. I guess. Ito smith the lead guy now but i told you weeks ago. Todd gurley was done. They have confirmed that. I mean he had worked for negative of one yard in that game. It's ridley it's gauge him. I finally woke up. He got into the end zone. But i mean if you think they're going to need to put up points. I think you can put matt ryan out there. But i am going to look at the recent trends. Okay and matt ryan's numbers without. Julio jones have been miserable year he put them up against tampa bay and a tough effort. again if you think that now is matt ryan without julio jones by all means this game has a fifty three and a half point over under its ten and a half point line so atlanta. I can't run anyway. So you know atlanta's gonna throw. But i just don't. I think this could be a problematic spot from matt ryan. He can turn the ball over. Lockets sacked the bucks skit on the other side. You've got the chiefs. Who are the chiefs. And i feel like. We don't need to say anything about them every week. Although what about on bell heard reggie layer looks like i don't think he'll play until the playoffs now if if he plays in the playoffs high ankle and an associated hip injury. Let me. i'm is an rb two. They don't run the football although they did last week. I think they viewed it as something they could do against the saints. Eleven bell is an rb two in this game. I think he should almost certainly be in your lineup. I haven't hard time believing you have like three running backs better than levy on bell. If you picked him up off the waiver wire just keeping your benching tyreek hill but just keep an eye on keep an eye on it. Because i think he's not one hundred percent he's been dealing with a hamstring injury. I just think that to me. That means what mahomes as he did. Last week is going to gravitate more and more towards traps kelsey. Yeah i think that's pretty clear all right. The bears barriers against the jags are people going to win. Fantasy leagues joe with bare skill. Guys oh yeah i mean. David montgomery has been phenomenal mitchell. Trubisky got back in the lineup. David montgomery has been like i mean. He's right up there with like derrick henry in terms of overall fantasy producers. He has been phenomenal. He they're seven and a half point favorites game. David montgomery could see another thirty targets of thirty carries rather allen robinson. He's been getting it done. He's in your lineup as wide receiver to wide receiver. One kind of option. dr knell. Mur mooney has been a guy probably with with with At this point you probably have better options. But he's been coming alive lady scored by sweet against minnesota. Heck i think mitchell trubisky. Maybe the best football of his career right now against jacksonville defense. I think he's a viable streamer. So yeah chicago. Bears skill guys organ fantasy championships and they might. Well have saved matt nagy shop at this point unbelievable and looked it. Can you imagine. Joe beaten the lines. If they hadn't fumbled the ending they'd be eight and explain the jags. Yeah six yep an opportunity Believe he's still alive for the play. Offline my focuses more on fantasy but obviously you know chicago. They're trying to win every game. There's people here trying to save their jobs. Okay what we always say. They pack it up. Why don't belie- pack up. Stafford for the year darrell. Babbel's not going to be there next year. Darrell bebel is like i don't i don't i don't want to pack it in matt nagy ain't gonna pack it in whether they're eliminated or not ninety wants to save his job. Mitchell trubisky has been lee punchline for every joke told in chicago for the last three years. He doesn't want to pack it in. He wants to get a job he wants to. He wants to prove. Hey i got something you know. I might have been over but there was a reason i was. I was a top three pick in the nfl draft. That's what mitchell trubisky wants to say. So these guys are going to pack it in you know and and they're still fighting so no i mean chicago like you're right guys are winning championships because they are as motivated as anybody out there on the jaguars front. What are you got. Absolutely nothing james robinson is hurt I would not anticipate that. He's going to play in this game. Just keep it on his status because if he goes you wanna play them but again. Chicago's defense look garmin. Shoe comes back. And you're like whoa. Dj chart four for fifty three. I mean okay but not great. Chris calmly scored a touchdown last week. You're not playing him. The other down. The jacksonville scored was a photo. James robinson he got hurt so this is one of those teams that i think right now we can ignore for fantasy weeks in week. Sixteen bengals at the texans ryan. Finley is a machine joe. You can't stop ryan finley. Well no not really geo bernard probably helps people. Yeah i mean the problem is he was helping people. He was helping people who Forgot to set their lineups three weeks ago. And we're already eliminated because geo bernard was benched two weeks ago and he comes back for twenty five. Eighty three scores two touchdowns ryan finley complete. Seven passes getting tyler. Boyd gets the concoction. I'm still a little hesitant to go. Hey look at this. The problem is it's a bad tax defense so if you're still alive maybe geo bernard was on the waiver. Wire i think maybe you can go out there. And kim up and play him as an rb two or reflects in this game because it's a bad defense. The problem is within the quarterback tyler boyd dealing with a concussion. I think the only receiver. Here that i would feel good about is higgins who had six targets but i would probably prefer to avoid this passing game even in this match up. I know they beat pittsburgh but they did it with ryan finley completing seven passes so that just as way more about pittsburgh than it does about anybody else Okay on the other side. You got the texans. Feels like to shawn watson. Still kind of fines away. Sort of no matter. What he's up. He made the pro bowl justifiably so made the pro bowl. I know a lot of people are upset about ryan. Tannehill not making it. How about david. Johnson out of nowhere by the way catching eleven passes in that game. I think you play david. Johnson you play the shawn watson and i- and brandin cooks. I think are wide receiver threes in this matchup against the cincinnati. Defense that well. Frankly we'd been targeting all year but they did a heck of a job against ben rothlisberger last week. Yeah they did all right. Giants and the ravens. Okay so i would kind of expect daniel jones back for the giants as it. Make a difference. Now we just said ignore the jaguars now. I want to ignore the giants who might have the offense professional football right now Daniel jones helps. But i don't wanna play anybody against baltimore wang allman. Thanks for your service buddy. But nine carries for twenty nine yards. Didn't get it done I guess the one guy who would say is okay from. The giants is evan engram. Just because of the tight end position general. But it's a bad match up a this is you don't win fantasy championships trying to go galaxy brain and saying hey. I like the giants against the ravens. Because of this now it's just like dfs is a different story You know maybe you find some edge with a lower own player. But here's the thing when you go when you play your trying to find an edge saying you know what i sleep here or i kind of like goldman the reason you say that is because it's a lower percentage play that you'd think can hit you play. Dfs differently than you do in season long. And i can't imagine there are many season-long teams out. There excited the play. The new york giants skill position players championship game against the baltimore ravens. What about the ravens on the other side all of a sudden they're starting to put up a bunch of points. Yeah unfortunately they're run game. Lamar jackson Jk dobbins and gus edwards had killed you for months but now they're looking like the two thousand nineteen version of the baltimore ravens. Lamar jackson all of a sudden is right back to the top of the qb weeks ago. I was telling you how the guy wasn't even close to justifying the pick that he went with if you made it to this point with lamar jackson. He's putting up. Big numbers got Jk the mark ingram was a healthy scratch. They have given that backfield to jk. Dobbins gus edwards. Dobbins is an rb to gus. Edwards is a flex option in this game. Hollywood brown all of a sudden six for ninety eight back on the wide receiver three radar and mark. Andrews is a tight end that you must play five for sixty six touchdown last week against the jacksonville jaguars. So this raven offense right. Now is looking like the raven offense that we analyzed in august. When we were telling people you know. I like jk dobbins in the middle rounds mark. Ingram is a top three tight end option. You should be drafting Marquees brown is one of my favorite targets. It didn't work that way. All through the month of november we got to december and they seem to have figured something out. Unfortunately you might not have made it to this point by drafting those guys but now those guys are helping you in your fantasy playoffs. If maybe you pick somebody up. You swung trade. All kinds of situations could be happening but right now the baltimore ravens are helping you in a big way. Pretty unbelievable that the ravens are like the anti steelers. They're starting to get hot now feelers. They're currently out of the playoff one. They're not in right now so the ravens goes without saying they. They have to be full steam ahead. They have to win games right now. Okay so browns are at the jets last game here in episode. One of the fantasy feast. We always do to each week. We do the friday nighter this week the saturday night the sunday one o'clock then we'll do the late games and the monday nighter. The browns. i mean baker. Mayfield is playing. Awesome right now. Joe the play action games really working for baker and the hotel beckham thing that they. Hey we didn't use odell beckham When odell beckham goes out. Baker mayfield has all of a sudden look. Better jarvis. landry putting up numbers I obviously think baker mayfield He was a guy. I was picking up two weeks ago simply because of this week. Sixteen with the jets. Who by the way ruined my season They ruined the season of jets fan by winning that game but they ruined my season. Because i was. I was targeting the jets as as a streamer a in terms of streaming quarterback against them they may jared goff look silly in that game so they ruined my season in the league the but i baker. Rachel frankly is playing better football. Jared goff right now. So i would throw baker mayfield out there as a q one in this match up. You know what to do with nick. Chubb kareem hunt spin a huge disappointment lately. But i still think he could get going against the jets defense Cleveland is obviously a favorite in this game They are Think nine and a half ten point favorites at most spots so they anticipate this is going to be a game where they're going to be able to run the football baker up. The thing with baker is the only receiver. I really wanna play from. The scene is jarvis landry but baker's been mixing the ball around so he's been the guy getting the number so baker mayfield absolutely love him in this spot nick chubb woven as i always do a cream haunt i think despite stinker last week you could consider rb two in this matchup and i like jarvis landry in this spot as well against the new york jets. One week is not going to change my opinion on what to do about the new york jets. I am targeting them for for fantasy in terms of using their opposition against them. Anybody on offense for the jets. Now i mean i know frank gore had a touchdown but he twenty three carries for fifty nine yards. Maybe jamison crowder six for sixty six last week. You can throw in there as a wide receiver three But i know jets fans are just hoping and praying that They lose this game. They are very disappointed about the trevor lawrence scenario. I went on jets. Read it just read. What was going on. And it was very sad. It was enough to depress you After winning that game against the rams they have a sean mcvay heat read up there on read it. They were very upset about mcveigh because he lost the super bowl to the patriots and then lost to the jets when the just really need to lose for fantasy it nothing changes for me with the jets. It's a losing proposition. Be playing these guys in your championship. It is a winning proposition to listen to joe and the fantasy fees podcast especially part two which we will record momentarily post shortly after midnight. So y'all have it.

2021 Fantasy Football - Week 5 (Part 2)

"It's time to eat. What are you hungry four. Sit down and get ready to consume an abundance of fantasy football knowledge from russ tucker and joe dolan now on the fantasy feast eight and podcast eat. Maybe it is fantasy fees eating podcast presented by draftkings. Those show. that's so nice. We do it twice. I'm ross. Tucker former baller i guess if you say that that means that you're good former player i suppose at ross tucker. Nfl on social media love any interaction. Love the quote tweets. That you guys use one to talk about how much you love the show. It is awesome. We are at ross tucker piled. You can always check us out on youtube youtube dot com slash. Ross tucker nfl. I'm giving away a free man and again this week to someone that takes advantage of any of the sponsors over at ross tucker dot com the star this show always joe dolan I mean just the nuggets. He dropped yesterday show incredible. I'm writing down henderson. Ramsey jalen hurts overall. Qb three he's had six touchdowns taken away. I take notes when joe dolan speaks. So should you. Fantasy points dot com. Use the code. Twenty-one feast that is joe's domain his social is at f. g. underscore dolan and we do this twice every week including joe talking about browns and the chargers. Something is wrong with baker mayfield. Well i don't know what the heck happened in last week's game. He was awful now. The browns won. Ross i mean does he get like performance anxiety when odell beckham as white ass open the browns talking point browns fans. They're talking point is forces the ball odell. You saw the wide open. Throw for what would have been. What a sixty two yard touchdown i mean. He threw it short end behind. Beckham roth tibo. What made this. I mean he was that wide open. There's no forcing the ball. When odell beckham is gonna moon walk into the end zone for a sixty. Two yard touchdown. I don't know what was up with baker last week but it was not a pretty performance And i think you know the funny part. Is i think odell looks really good. I think odell is out there. And i think he's i think he's doing a great job getting open but baker mayfield. That's just two touchdown passes in two games so far. This is a team. That's going to be built on the run game. I think there's three guys you play. You play odell beckham. You play nick job. You play kareem hunt not one. Those teams that takes a lot of analysis. You just baker mayfield gets his you know what out of his you know what and decides that he's going to start making accurate throws to guy who's wide open and is going to help you score points. I don't think there's anything that has to do with baker mayfield forcing bought odell beckham. I just wonder baker mayfield has the yes when he's throwing the ball. The odell beckham. That's my concern right now while that's interesting. What about the chargers. They're just good. Yeah they're good. Awesome hecklers league winner. If he stays on the field. I know everybody was holding their breath at the beginning of that monday. Night game when he came off the field Mike williams had a tough go of it with casey hayward. Last week i understand. Mike williams is one of those guys always fooled everybody now. I mean he's going to be fine. I like his role You know the raiders did a good job on keenan allen. You play every week. Justin herber is similar. Ross to aaron rodgers in that the guys in the mvp conversation but because he doesn't run a ton he has just thirty one yards rushing and four games. he's actually the qb thirteen overall. Which is which is a. I mean it means. He's starting quarterback for fantasy but it means he's not doesn't have that huge monster elite upside that you might have bargained for when you drafted him as one of the first seven or eight quarterbacks off the board in in in in the summer And if you're playing a tight end here. It's jared cook but he's part of that. Endless group streamers that includes tyler conflict dalton schultz that includes dawson knox which. Which of these guys are we gonna play. I think that's That that's the concern. Right now with jared cook. Are you going to pick them on the right week. Left it. to bears and raiders. Justin field showed something but now we got david montgomery out. Yeah david david montgomery's out. And what's the deal with quarterback position. What are they going to do. They're going to start. Dalton i mean just something something darnall. Mooning my boy. He finally shows something allen robinson has been getting lapped by darnell. Mooning by the way that's a concern but the problem is even in a game where people like. Oh my god justin fields. He played well. He completed eleven passes. It's not going to cut it for fantasy. You know we need somebody who's gonna throw the ball more. I don't know you can play whoever you want. You can play. Nagy complained fields. You can we can pace you. Can i mean you can blame the alice family. I don't care who you blame but eleven passes. Completed is not going to get it. Done for fantasy damian williams. By the time he listened to this your waivers might have run as a matter of fact that you're listening to this on thursday so they certainly did But he was the top waiver wire pick up of the week. I thought he looked pretty spry out. There picked up a thigh injury. But it doesn't look like anything serious One thing that must be noted for the bears and just keep this in. My maybe you miss damien williams. And you're looking. You know. I just need a back. Who's going to have a shot here. They traded preteen. Graham of the miami dolphins now grants wide receiver. But here's why it's key. He returns kicks. That means the bears could be able to pull khalil. Herbert the rookie. Running back out of virginia tech off kick returns so he can rotate into the backfield with damien williams. So you might miss damien williams maybe khalil. Herbert is still out there in your league. If you're really dying for running back and just say look. I need a guy might get me a shot in the coming weeks cleal. Herbert might be worth a look deeper week. What about for the raiders. I it felt like took a while for them to throw it to their and wall or the other night and it took him a while to start chucking the other night. Yeah and you know joey. Bosa comes out with the comments. You know if you pressure. Derek carr the one thing that is so weird to me about the raiders. Is brian edwards. As i watched this guy and he makes catches that make you go. Wow like this guy's a super high contested catch guy. He hasn't seen more than five targets in the game this season. But he's like the benjamin button a fantasy football. His snaps have gone up every week. Sixty six percent. Seventy four percent seventy six percent eighty nine percent and then his worst game is in the game replays. Eighty nine percent of the snaps. I'm gonna look at the usage and say that that's a positive. But the problem is i think derek carr has two guys that he really likes to focus on. That's waller and that's hunter renfro. Henry ron's will make plays down the field. Maybe brian edwards. Who's more of a traditional. X is getting left behind the wayside because their car doesn't wanna throw the ball into a tight window and maybe that's why brian edwards is starting to struggle in the backfield. Kenyan drake didn't get at target in that game. Josh jacobs is less than one hundred percent. Peyton barber picks up a foot injury. I don't know what's going on in that backfield. I have no confidence in starting any of these guys had asked to be one. It's got to be jacobs going forward. Well it has to be october because it's fall car care month. Which means autozone is here to help you. Joe with your car's oft forgotten upkeep and cleaning. Look i know you're down south now so the weather is not as bad but you know what it's like especially up here in the northeast and i don't care where you live. Take care of your car like it's just something you should do on the regular oil change before the cold weather. Hits needs some new headlights. Now that you know will be having shorter days. It's depressing but that's the reality no matter what. The task is autozone here to help. They have over six thousand stores nationwide for free services in excellent products. That help you take care of your car and get that job. Off of your checklist. Love the free. Same day pickup. Love the free next day delivery. Love that you can order as late as ten pm in your package will arrive the next day. This fall car care month. Show your car you care and start by shopping your way at auto zone dot com get in zone autozone. Yes joe i liked to do i try to. I try to mimic the jingle from the tv show niners at arizona. We record this on wednesday before practice reports. Come out so we don't know about jimmy g. i maintain he's not gonna play and it'll be trae lance but the niners are still keeping that up. What does that mean joe. Well i think it means. They're going to run the ball a lot more. I think if trae lance plays. I mean they're going to run and i think the run game is going to be a foundational part and then but rock then that becomes who's going to be. The back is elisha. Mitchell gonna play this week trae sermon. I did not think. Look good week three. I thought he looked pretty good week. Four what's the rotation they are going to be has a chance to be pretty annoying if they throw the ball less. I'm wondering what that means for brandon. I you who caught one pass last week. Deebo samuel right now. I mean the guy is just on fire like and it always seems like when a guy is on just complete hair. He gets the benefit of those like busted. Plays like the seventy four yard touchdown this past week where i mean. It looks like you steal not out there. I mean he had his back turned to the goal line and lashed drops in there. And he just takes off and runs for a touchdown dies. The league went right now. He's the number two wide receiver and fantasy football behind. Only uber cup So i mean those. That's guy you gotta keep playing. Obviously you have to play kindle. I know it's been frustrating I think i would justify benching. Iu euch but other that otherwise. Hey check the practice reports late in the week. If trae lance the starter. I think he's a good fantasy quarterback this week. Because i think he's gonna run. He's going to run more than just in fields has run. I think he's going to run. Maybe at the same level jalen hurts as run so far which is like fifty to sixty yards per game. I think that's in the mix betray lance if he starts this weekend. I think it's a good opportunity especially in a high scoring environment against the nfl final undefeated team. What about the arizona cardinals. My boy chase edmund is good. Yeah he is good. Ross like a here is. I'm gonna workshop something here quite along with me or you talk business. A football with andrew brandt. This is the corporate backfield. I'm cotonou tell you why. This is the corporate backfield chase. Edmunds does all the work. And james connor gets all the credit chase. Edmunds is the rb thirteen. And doesn't have a touchdown. That's he's the only running back in the top. Twenty who doesn't have a touchdown. Because james connors the guy down at the goal on james garner has four touchdowns but chase. Edmunds is really good. And chase edmunds in a high scoring environment. You know. he's getting targets so like i'm not even this. This is why you should be excited about. J. sevens don't be frustrated. Be excited chase sentences. The rb thirteen despite not scoring a touchdown which is the easiest way to rack up chunks and chunks fantasy points. He's third in running backs in targets. His five point nine yards per carry is the most among any running back with forty or more carries. So he's playing really well this year. he's an rb to james. Connor is a touchdown dependent slacks. But at the very lease hey root for the bosses if you want the boss to win root for chase adamant to get tackled inside the five yard line. Because james connor is going to come in and he's going to clean it up with touchdown the other thing to talk about with we know about our murray. I mean he's the mvp favorite right now. How about this. On the andre hopkins though hopkins over his last three games has just eleven catches for one hundred and forty two yards and a touchdown on seventeen targets in terms of yardage. It's his worst three game stretch since weeks. Seven through ten in two thousand sixteen. He had a biden mixed in there when brock osweiler was his quarterback. The cardinals are mixing the ball around the andrea. Hopkins has twenty five targets. That's the same number numbers robert woods and that's people who have robert woods how frustrated they are asked robert woods. How frustrated he. He threw his spent on the sideline this past weekend. He has only one more target than aged green and only two more are only three more targets than chase that the cardinals were mixing the ball around. That's good for the cardinals. They're winning therefore no they don't give a crap but kingsbury doesn't care about your fantasy team. But if you draft the andre hopkins in the second round and you're seeing max williams out there getting seven targets. You're probably pretty frustrated right now. That's not what you paid for. That's not the investment you made hopkins has been dealing with a rib injury. I still think he's gonna get his. And i think this is a good week for him to bounce back against dinged up san francisco secondary but so far the target hound that the andre hopkins has been his entire career that is not come to pass for the four cartons. Joe what about the giants and the cowboys danny dime today. What a difference. A couple of weeks makes yeah danny. Unfortunately of course The week after danny dimes has the matchup against the falcons and everybody on planet earth is on streaming daniel jones this week. And he doesn't put a touchdown on the board. He goes for over four hundred yards and two touchdowns against the saints so of course daniel jones. But he's playing well. And he did this. Without his his blankie sterling shepard in this game we have to check the status of shepherd and dairy slate who both missed with hamstring injuries. But it was really good to see saquon. Barkley just do saquon barkley things and i think saquon barkley was excited. That saquon barkley saquon barkley things. There was like utter joy. When he scored that long receiving touchdown as part of his five for seventy four and a touchdown receiving day. he also had fifty two yards rushing touchdown. Saquon barkley look like saquon barkley last week and the giants are going to continue to use him. He is an rb one yet again. Kenny golic goes over one hundred yards. You know dan. Daniel does get yelled at by him in a week to On national television but cantagalo eight six six catches on seven targets. They don't jones's throwing the ball. Well i think golladay is going to catch us. Trevan dig shadow though not a good thing. If you've been paying attention to trevan digs this year. evan ingram. I don't want anything to do with this guy. I'm done with them One guy that you should pick up though and your deep leaks couple really nice. Plays breaking tackles canaries. Tony takes advantage of his opportunity with sterling. Shepard dairy slate now six catches for seventy eight yards on nine targets. The rookie canaries tony. He's got a shot to play more going forward. The size might have a few more weapons than you think and daniel jones is probably in the best stretch of football of his entire career. So far how about them cowboys. Here's the thing without. And i think the kind of want to continue playing this way for the first time in over three seasons dak prescott thrum fewer than thirty passes in three consecutive games. Now dallas three enough. Zeke elliott looks. Good tony pollard. Looks good why would dallas change that especially when prescott is coming off a serious ankle injury. Ross why would they change that. The problem is if you invested in cd. Lamb and amari. Cooper michael gallup could come off the i. r. in the next couple of weeks you're like what the hell man i need. Backdrop it back sixty times like like he did in week one and then on top of that you see the tight ends dolton schultz gets oppressed. God's twenty two targeted passes last week. Blake darwin also scores a touchdown. This is not what you bargained for when you when you drafted see going in the second round in many drafts in august you're not getting sick around production out. See the lamb right now James bradberry you would think he's going to match up on cooper in this game. Maybe that's an advantage for them. Maybe it's greece the squeaky wheel game for cd lamb but prescott not dropping back a ton. The running the ball a lot. This is how the wanna be playing defense playing better because digs and you know in parsons. It's probably changed this offense knocking down some of the volume that we had anticipated. And it's making them. As effective as they have been frustrating for fantasy overcoming the odds rewriting the playbook delivering under pressure. The mvp of small business lead their teams to victory all year. Long visa is proud to provide playmakers everywhere with more tools to help grow their business. Help them achieve even greater success. Because the more people we can empower the more we all win visa a network working for everyone. Everything's working for the buffalo bills and the chiefs offensively right now. What a sunday night game. Joe and this is going to be a great one Let's start with the chiefs. 'cause it's easy. I'll first and foremost if you'd wanna pick up josh gordon. I mean put him on your bench and at twelve fourteen league. Fine i mean i. I would be surprised. If he's as a producer he's more than mykola hardman who pops off once every like four games. But i mean it is a good offense i i mean i'm not gonna tell you not to try to invest in that up play mahomes you play deal you play kelsey and at this point you play edwards allaire. Who's run the ball really well by the way edwards for over one hundred yards against the bills last year. If you're interested in that so he's gone for one hundred yards in back to back games. I mean the chief of the chiefs you could take a shot on mykola hardman. Apparently gordon is going to be active this week. So i'm not really in the business of of openly deciding to put me call hartman in lineup. So that that's the way i feel about the chiefs. The funniest part is they're they're the team everybody wants to talk about for the nfl. But for fantasy there so simple like i. I struggled to come up with things to say about the kansas city chiefs. Every what about the bills yet. So josh allen The weather was not great by the way But he's still missing throws from the pocket which which is a little bit of a concern to me Stefan digs the production. Hasn't really been there the way it was last year but i still think he's kind of a bilo guy. I mean i mean people were complaining about him. And i'm looking at his numbers right now and he has twenty six catches in four games as share thirteen eight ten ten in the four games. A stefan is going to be just fine. The problem is now for emmanuel with emmanuel sanders in dawson knocks emerging. The problem is that It's kind of made coal beasley more of a in and out of your lineup. Type guy you know. That was guy. You can count on getting eight ten targets every week last year. He isn't doing that. This year with emmanuel sanders dawson knocks. Making plays i think this is the defense that Yet to forgive. Christmas she's excited. It's birthday Emmanuel sanders is a guy who's making plays against everybody. I think against this chief secondary in a projected high scoring environment. I think emmanuel sanders is a phenomenal option. This week and dawson knocks. This guy whose talent is finally showing and josh allen looks for him in the red zone. So dawson knox's guy i'm really interested in. If you're playing a back here. I'd prefer to be zach moss but i still think the mosque single terry rotation is going to be annoying more than more than anything fantasy. So that is amazing. That your dog's name is crimp. It you absolutely need to check us out on youtube youtube dot com slash. Ross tucker nfl. And i think that crimp it was just excited about tyreek kill because he had the draft kings performance of the week presented by yummy but cardi spiced rum. I mean everybody knows eleven catches one hundred six yards three touchdowns on twelve targets. Fifty point six fantasy points honestly. It felt like they could have gone to him even more unbelievable job by tyreek hill. Let's wrap things up. Joe the baltimore battle. The colts in baltimore against the ravens. Well rossa. you would be probably thrilled to know. And this this might be only a regional regional thing. You might be thrilled to know my other. Dog names butterscotch. So i love it. It is a regional thing and it's delicious. Yeah very much sell scotching. We call her but But crimp the star of the show. Tonight she's the one who's all curled up in the back corner there but anyway. Yeah the colt battle. By the way. I learned this ra might clay this week if you go to any official. Nfl website. And you're looking at like the team abbreviations like the giants are. Nyg and dallas is d. a. l. You know ross. Why the baltimore ravens team. Abbreviation is b. l. t. Which is making me hungry. No because b. a. l. refers to the baltimore colts for the nfl. So despite the baltimore colts not existing anymore. That abbreviation is is assigned to them. It's the same thing if you see the houston texans on official nfl abbreviations. They are h. S. t. because age. Oh you belong to the houston oilers for my clients. Did you know that when the colts play at the ravens. It'll say indie ravens. Yeah stadium they will not put colts up anywhere. That is so cool. The only team they do that for i did not know that m. teabag stadium's a cool place to see a game by the way i love it. I did a couple of weeks ago. All that's a really like that's weird because nfl stadiums sometimes don't have a lot of like character in the way baseball stadiums. Do but i remember going there. It was actually like twelve years ago for eagles ravens game and when i worked for the eagles and it has a lot of character. That stadium does. I don't know there was just something about it. But anyway let's talk. Let's talk in the n baltimore. India's is just kind of jonathan taylor. Yeah i mean you play. Fortunately he got in the end zone last week. The guy looks good to me. I don't. I don't think there's anything wrong with jonathan taylor But it's just been the frustrating aspect of not getting touchdowns and then all of a sudden more when mac on the trade bloc is in last week and he gets ten carries against the dolphins I think they've gotta get the ball to taylor in this one. Michael pittman is consistently getting a ton of targets every week. He's more of a wide receiver three because he hasn't gotten in the end zone per our guy. Scott barrett fantasy points dot com because pittman has twelve targets twelve targets in eight targets over his last three games but hasn't scored a touchdown. He's actually one of the top positive candidates in terms of expected. Fantasy points in the entire league. So that's probably somebody you know who you can keep on your bench and saying maybe if went starts to go his way in the red zone. That's somebody that. I can start trusting on my team. A carson wentz. Don't touchdown passes two players this year. Three does act. Pascal to mo- alley cox alley cox. Came out last week instead to wednesday. Look you put the ball anywhere near me in the red zone which has been a problem for carson wentz in recent years you put ball anywhere near me. I'm going to catch two touchdowns last week. I would expect moallem cox. If you're desperate at tight end he's going to be somebody who's gonna get red zone looks. I'm just not so confident. How many red zone looks alley cox is going to get or the colts are going to get in this matchup. 'cause baltimore what about for the ravens joe. So the ravens made a surprising move by making Latavius murray their lead back and making tyson williams healthy scratch last week and harbach amount with gobbledygook coachspeak. We're just we're just going to see what we have in lady on bell something that ties on williams's doing that they don't like i don't know what it is. The guys averaging six point one yards per carry. But there's something they don't like great. See hollywood brown bounce back for the ravens Last week with a great diving touchdown mark andrews is getting involved. I wanna see the reports this week and you can't plan for fantasy. It's a monday night game. I want to see him for shot. Bateman might get back in. He started practicing last week. That somebody with the way. Lamar jackson don't look now but the more jackson's dropping back throwing the football. I mean he had thirty seven pass attempts this past week. I mean there are starting to throw the ball a little bit more. I think he's playing pretty well. He's been often over thirty pass attempts in three or four games. This year. I mean rashad bateman. Somebody who might start to contribute for fantasy football. You're playing you're obviously playing the mar- if you're playing a wide receiver here. It has to be hollywood. You need to play hollywood. I mean he scored in three or four games should have scored three times against detroit but his hands got in the way. I mean you have to play hollywood. You have to play mark andrus. If you're playing a backyards. God we latavius murray. I'm just a little weird on what happened with With the tax on william situation. Yeah good point. Joe and it's a good show that'll do it for the fantasy. Feast podcast this week. Check out joe on social at f. g. underscore dolan. I am at ross tucker.

You have been excellent so well prepared so good and obviously i don't really think many people turned onto under the fancy feast to hear my voice they turned on the fancy feast because of you and the insight that you have provided and i strongly encourage people bull to check out everything that you've got going over at established the run dot com thanks man and <hes> you know the feeling is mutual. I remember when you first gain opportunity to just you know just do something to get up at six in the morning on sirius x._m. Radio august <hes> greg cosell his spotted come open and you gave me a shot and awful you know but i was like just trying to find my find my voting and <hes> that was an incredible opportunity. You didn't give up on me after that and you know we started to <hes> you kind of embrace the fantasy thing you know and we would have arguments in the beginning like i know you gotta wait on quarterback like no no to concur search around you know and then we kinda you kinda learn you know over the years i mean i think they walk away from this thing like you became. I'm a pretty good fantasy player. You know <hes> by the end of all this and <hes> it was fun. You know all all the back and forth banter all all the you know like i'm i'm talking about something and then you know you liked perfect like contexts having played the game having been able to apply <hes> your experiences with the offensive line which we agree and try to drill into people's heads that it is like an underrated and overlooked aspect of fantasy analysis no uncovers it enough and you know certainly our offensive line tears and just being in just me being able to ask you questions about offensive line stuff. <hes> has really added a different element to our <hes> our analysis and we you know we started with like five years ago and we really built a pretty darn good podcastone. We stuck with it. I think i only missed like three or four shows like over the over the five years you of course never missed a show but and we did it every single week even even during the off season we are like mad. You know there are a couple of times and is there anything that's aqaba right now and we pretty much would always come up with something so i'm i'm proud of what we built and <hes> you know i. I know that the fantasy feast is gonna live on with a really talented do do you remember like how we i ever even came into contact with each other like i don't remember. I don't remember or what happened that i even reached out to you. <hes> i know you were writing for pro football talk and you were writing for rural but i don't know how i got your number to even. Have you come on the show at all. I'm fairly certain that you reached out to me. <hes> i i definitely would <hes> would read you are. I'm sorry i would listen to your podcast with m._d. Like religiously that that was e._s._p._n. Was like something mccall that the focus or something called football today football football today. That was one of my favorite i mean this is like really went podcast. We're starting to kind of take off. I mean this was what like shoot two thousand ten maybe two thousand eleven and <hes> or at least this is when i started to really listen to as many podcasts as i could and i started understand the value of podcast and i would try to listen to podcasts while i was like writing my articles and <hes> u._n._m. Dub i always thought thought were awesome. So it's possible i my guess. Is that like i would like tweet. I maybe tweeted that out a little bit and then you kind of notice this that and then <hes> you started following me what you were always super conservative with your follows you know i think you are even still to to this this day <hes> so that was huge and then yes some somehow you you reach out to me yes i. It might have been just via email. You got my email or something but that that was that was definitely the the first step that led to that little serious opportunity and then of course did a fantasy like joining forces for the fantasy feast couple thoughts number one. I do remember bringing you on serious that first time and you really your finest day you're right. I don't really know why <hes> but it just seems just help it would be as i was nervous as hell and i. I didn't know what my what my voice was. You know i didn't know oh. I didn't even know how to talk like literally didn't even know the best way to talk you know and then the other thing i think about is i. I remember you. I remember talking with you and what you really wanted. You were kind of just getting started and you what you really wanted to. Just you really it wasn't really about the money for you or even prestige asia fame or followers or whatever you really just wanted to be respected and i remember you mentioning greg cosell as a guy i looked up to and that you really just wanted to be respected and had an have people respect your opinion man and you have absolutely done that. If that was the goal i would say absolutely mission accomplished. Thanks man. I appreciate it. You know <hes> yeah. I mean i just wanted people to kind of you. Know talking about it you know and so and i think that the best avenue toward that was to try to be not be the best at everything but just be competent in every area whether it was applying analytics or you know being you know halfway decent math or being a decent talker or being able to apply aspects of the game that maybe other people weren't looking at like offensive line stuff knowing you know every starter and key backup in the n._f._l. I keep like a running log of depth chart update with every single transaction even like undrafted rookies so i just always kind of have my like in my brain. Who's like the third or fourth string guy. Even you know in in playing preseason d._f._s. Even and we'll bring that into focus <hes> you know and then certainly <hes> just being able to watch the game and know what's going on and that's an ongoing going on doing process that you know i think you're always learning when you're watching the game and then i think that because the rules change a little bit every year and <hes> you know teams kind of are they starting to search. They play a little bit different every year. You know even chip kelly. I know that he didn't you know <hes> wind up having a ton of n._f._l. Success but you know a lot of coaches across the league like took ideas from him and dan in some ways he changed the way that i think teams play the same has been the case for sean mcveigh. Certainly other teams have always copy the patriots you know matt nagy andy reid andy reid is is probably the most copied offense talk of of anyone he's always evolving so just understanding all those things <hes> or at least trying to understand all those was things. I think it has been kind of the pathway that i've tried to <hes> try to take with that. We can reveal the next host of the fantasy feast eaten podcast you you know him very well evan. It's interesting because when i knew that you were starting a new venture with established the run dot com. I was was thrilled for you. I wish it much success. I mentioned it every podcast. I'm going to whenever you can or feel like coming on as a guest. We can absolutely do that but i knew i had to go big. I knew i had to get somebody. That was really really good and fantasy. Prose comes out with fantasy rankings their most accurate fantasy football draft experts. I don't even know you probably know more than i do about what those are really based upon but i looked at the top and the number one guy was a guy named joe dolan who was formerly with the site fantasy guru dot com with john hanson a buddy of mine so i got joe dolan's number from jon hansen. The fancy guru reached out to him and he's the next guy it's. It's a big shoes to fill so i felt like i had to go credibility. I had to go would the guy that was number. One on a couple of lists. I found and i love this pick because i've been listening to joe dolan for a long time. You actually had a podcast cast for several years with grand bard who has moved onto n._f._l. Dot com and n._f._l. Network and i always thought that joe dolan <hes> deserves. It's like a little bit bigger platform. Certainly fantasy guru is a very big platform but i always thought that he deserved more than what we had and because i think that he is very similar in terms of the way that he thinks he is not like he's not solely a film guy. He's not solely a numbers guy. He kinda gets it across the board. You know he gets that it. It doesn't have to be one way you can. <hes> you know you need to add you need to incorporate some subjectivity into you your analysis and he's going to bring that to you and he's going to give you very strong opinions that that's one thing that stands out about joe dolan. He's not gonna ride the fence ceman. He's a really good talker and <hes> i think he's such a good pick for for this role and you i wish him the the the the best some of those wednesday mornings when i drop off my kid from school and we gotta do like almost two hours worth of podcast we we do the what how do we do with the ace the a._f._c. and the n._f._c. We break down every single game then you know that's that's a big commitment for him and actually i had a phone call with them. <hes> the other night and that was one of the main topics was tackling the wednesday more. It's a lot of fun but and it's a a great challenge but it's it's a lot a lot of work but i think he's ready for. It and i think he's gonna absolutely crush truly awesome awesome pick great dude yes so we actually we started doing the last few years like we would do the thursday night game and then sunday ones then we we do the sunday fours and sunday night monday night that we broke it down. I think joe and i are going to record on tuesday afternoon. Because i have this new show over at radio dot com. We're gonna see we're going to see if he can bring bring the bring the substance bring the bring the heat like you have for so many years if he can bring the meat sandwich if you will speaking of meat by the way having hopefully you already subscribed to butcher box because it's absolutely absolutely delicious i the crap out of their organic chicken and they're salmon so freaking good and they send and it right to your door.

That's butcher box dot com slash feast evans so without further ado we are now joined for the first first time by joe dole and you can follow him on twitter at f. g. underscore joe dolan joe welcome to the fantasy. Does he faced. You got big shoes to fill my friend. They are absolutely massive shoes ross. I really hope can do that. It's been great talking to you and evan here ear over the last couple of weeks. I'm thrilled to be aboard. I'm really excited to to get into. It and i'm really happy to evans on here to say pass. The the torch is so if feel so kind of frankly a haughty to say so but i'm really glad he's on here and i got a chance to talk with him. So everybody knows knows that this is a this is a big loving family here yeah. They actually hate each other. They're doing this because i'm paying them to do this. I know i will say this before. I forget this thing these rankings evan how come i don't see you in the top ten. I've been touting doubting you for years. Is the number one fantasy analysts in the world. What did you have a bad year last year. What where do these fantasy prose rankings come from. I don't i don't participate in that. <hes> <hes> we we can have an affair conversation about god yeah but it isn't. It isn't an absolute testimony to how how good of that joe is one thing. You're going to expect you know one of the best pieces of advice that ross ever gave me. I still think about it all the time. I still like i think they need to get better at it all the time. Is you need to bring more energy need to bring more energy. You know because again when i was doing that that serious bit for him <hes> in the early days i wasn't bringing enough energy and raw russia need to bring more energy pass that advice onto a lot of other fantasy analysts were starting to get into the podcast game in particular joe. Don one doesn't need that advice because joe dolan brings a ton of energy. You can hear it in his voice and i can't wait for him to cross this. Well all right. I'm going to tell you something. My wife would argue. I bring way too much energy as with my shrink whoa whoa whoa t._m._i. Joe is your first. I episode. Your wife says you bring way too much. I'm a little too loud. She tells me i scream when i'm on the phone which probably is something. I need to work on but let's get. Let's get to the rankings. Okay my rankings of the rankings that i put up fantasy prose. They are very good. They are certified very good but ross. I can't can't just come onto a podcast and just list rankings. That's a really bad podcast. You need to have justification behind the rankings. You need to really reach out and acquire acquire knowledge from every area possible and this is something that i've learned from evan following him on twitter and reading his stuff he's a sponge and and being sponges important being able to absorb all all the right stuff but also when you ring that sponge out the stuff that comes out has to be it has to be translatable translatable to the people so that they understand it and frankly. I think i've done a really good job. In an evans writing is a it's a big model for me as a writer being being able to make that information easily digestible for people so people can take it and make a big word and fantasy is actionable and so people can take that information nation and make it actionable for their fantasy leagues and let's be frank to be entertaining on the podcast. People listen to podcasts to be entertained. They listened to be informed and this podcast has done that so well and i really hope that i can step in and do the same. I'm i'm really excited for it but i hope i can just continue what evans footsteps this is not going going to be in my opinion ross a big change for you or for the listener yeah and you guys better. Have you back on as a guest like don't just ignore me. You know especially in the off seasons. When you've got nothing else to talk about. Maybe give old having to call. I would love to have you on here and so we can go back and forth ross. I mean that sounds great to me. I really i'm just so excited overwhelmed right now. Actually i'm very rarely at a loss for words but i am right now. Well so. I've already started to different. Websites sites established the past dot com and don't establish run down so i will be heavily promoting those is to evan. You're never coming back on here. You're no longer going to have the thousands and thousands of listeners and we'll see who does better established the run dot com or establish the past dot com. We'll see joe and i start her own. Little site didn't even tell you about that. It's not even ironic. We're being honest. You need to establish the past. I think maybe this is in your department but i'm sure evident. I can also establish the athletic for fantasy football writing. We can definitely do that. I can vouch for that all right so <hes> joe in tomorrow's episode you and i are going to break down down some of your fantasy drafting tips for the people drafting this week next weekend et cetera but i think and i know evan probably knows zelano this but for the listeners can you give them your background like how how you got to become a full time fantasy. The analyst ross a lot of times people ask for a advice on breaking into the fantasy industry and i wish i could tell them something something other than i got lucky. I have a big mouth but those that that's what it is for me. When i was graduating when i was graduating from college i got a phone call literally a week before i graduated from the philadelphia eagles. They were looking to fill a staff writer under dates barrio in philadelphia philadelphia eagles. Those guys hire anybody buddy. They'll hire complete scrubs as you well know from listeners of this podcast so called me chris mcpherson called me in april april of oh eight right before i graduated college and i managed to get that gig with philadelphia eagles dot com and i wrote for the website covering eagles. I was in an n._f._l. L. locker room every day got to see how teams operated got to see how beats operated and that was important. That was an important learning experience for me and when when that sees it was basically a one year internship one season internship the eagles at that time went all the way to the n._f._c. championship game so i got to go out to arizona and cover that game really likud experience and that ended a co worker of mine by the name of steve he he soul hey. I know you've been doing a fantasy column. I've been playing wing fantasy for years but they they really wanted a fantasy column on the eagles website so they were like oh. Here's this intern we'll have him. Do it turns out. I actually ended up really enjoying writing the column breaking down match ups and i learned how to do it from an eagles focus which allowed me to go in-depth into their match ups every week and my co worker steve when when my internship is expiring. He said hey check this out. He found a job posting on monster dot com. It was from a guy another scrub in the fantasy industry by the name of john hansen who was hiring for at the time fantasy dot com and i interviewed with john a couple of times and in march two thousand nine about a month after i left the eagles i and moved down to atlantic county new jersey and i started with fantasy guru dot com and i ascended to managing editor there and i was there for ten years and i'm i'm currently i guess you would say in a transitional time right now and ross. This is certainly part of that but i was there for ten years and evan can can attest to this is well what the fantasy industry was in early two thousand nine compared to where it is now. It's it's completely different. It's outrageous. When when i started it was a bunch of geo city looking websites with a bunch of old guys who had thirty five word blurbs on things and now it has it has developed into a multibillion dollar industry and the it seems like the best football analysis is filtered through the lens of fantasy and bedding and i know a lot of people will turn their noses up at that and i understand that but i'm i'm also on sirius x._m. Fantasy sports radio where we get phone calls and it's not a sports talk show where people call in to air their grievances or air their opinions uh-huh they call in because they want advice on things that can be to bring this word back actionable and people want advice they take the the analysis and they make it actionable and i think that's why so many things are filtered through the lens of fantasy fantasy shows on the e._s._p._n. N._f._l. dot com and this was really not happening when i started in the industry a year after i started was the establishment of sirius x._m. Fantasy sports radio and i think that's been a huge catalyst in the growing. The industry twitter has been a massive catalyst in the growth of the industry because people can get their stuff out there and get noticed and it's really so different different and the fact that i've been able to survive your makes me think a number one. I'm super lucky and a too. Many people are listening to me but i think getting into the industry at at the age i did when i was very adaptable. I was living alone. I think that really helped carry me to where i am right now pretty cool man. I love stories where he's like that. That's awesome. You guys have similar backgrounds. I mean think about what you guys. Were doing and now you. Both you know make really nice living fantasy football which is awesome absolutely awesome any any tips any other advice anything else evan. Even that joe needs to no not really because joe is just going to crush this. You know so i mean i i. I think he's got like i think he's got. He's got a really good you'll approach and by vision for where he wants to take. This and i think it's gonna be outstanding branding and again. Don't forget about me. Bring me on every now and again in the off seasons at least evan it has been awesome. You and i will still are you friends. You are right. I am very tight with how many people i follow on twitter because i literally read every tweet that any of my follow hello everybody i've follow tweet i read every tweet on my time line and you're staying even though even though you're no longer the fancy feast co host you're staying because you actually get very valuable tweets and very valuable re tweets of information so i find value i can remember when i was working with bigger mcfarland on sirius x._m. And he asked why i didn't follow him. I said because your twitter feed provides no value for me and he he he said well what do you mean and it was unbelievable because i went and i looked at his twitter and like his verse tweet. The most recent recent tweet was i'm going golfing at tampa bay golf club and a couple of hours looking forward to it just roasted him mercilessly ursula sleep for that tweet. I don't need that.

It's october twenty seven th two thousand seven margaret georgia football's head coach strolls across the turf of municipal stadium in jacksonville florida in just thirty minutes. His bulldogs will kick off against the florida gators and for once richt is brimming with confidence. Both teams are now five and two so neither is really a national championship contention but for richt. This is still the most important game he's ever coached. It's chillier than usual today. In jacksonville the city. That's hosted pretty much every florida georgia game since the nineteen thirties jacksonville is supposed to be neutral game site but it doesn't feel that way to rick act. It's in florida for crying out loud and a game called. The gator bowl is played here. How could it be neutral. Rick thinks as he looks up at a sea z. of orange and blue gator fans. The gators brought the bulldogs to heal in five of their last six matchups. It's given florida a huge mental. Edge zhen made the buttoned-up georgia coach desperate enough to do something crazy at least for him something with swagger. Maybe a little arrogance something to get at some fire in his squad's belly even if it pisses off some football purists something in other words very unmarked rick lake in seven seasons at georgia richt has built a reputation as a man of faith. Who's quiet decency stands out in the cutthroat world of college football for him. It's simple you win with integrity you lose with integrity. It's the georgia way. That's what makes this right now. The most off the wall moment of mark ricks entire career as kickoff approaches rick makes his way back to the cramped locker room stands before his players. There's and reminds them of his plan to snap their losing streak. He tells them if you don't get a celebration penalty after our first score. You'll all be doing early morning. Runs welcome oh come to jacksonville and the seventy fifth encounter at this site between these two better rivals however you need to compete if you're going to have a real rivalry and georgia georgia has lost as we said fifteen at the last seventeen almost nine minutes into a scoreless game with georgia facing third and goal at the florida one yard line star are running back. No sean marino takes a hand off and jumps over the pile of lyman in front of him marino up over the charger touchdown and here comes the entire not watch this for excessive celebration. We may have fifteen handke's here on this one. I can't believe this was playing. This was absolutely flying that he is going to try to find his t- tired of having the psychological advantage he's willing picked up the penalty nearly every georgia player on the sideline rushing the field penalty flags fly in every direction the c._b._s. Cameras swing to the other side line anticipating reaction from the gators. Tim tebow florida's phenomenally talented sophomore quarterback looks confused used sodas tvos coach urban meyer meyer is frantically waving his florida players off the field to avoid pointless penalties. Meanwhile rick takes makes it all in happily and knows his plan worked. The gators are rattled as the second half unfolds. Georgia's still doesn't give away its leave your stafford marino touch the bulldogs match every tibo touchdown with one of their own and win the game forty two to thirty for the first time in years. The florida georgia game lives up to the hype. A rivalry. That's been uneven in the last decade is incredible once again. Georgia's full team touchdown celebration quickly gets the nickname in the media. The gator stomp richt is thrilled but he's created an unexpected new problem while he made the rivalry competitive again he also just encouraged urban meyer tim tebow and the the entire florida team to spend the next three hundred sixty four days plotting their revenge that was just a preview of sports wars to to hear the rest of the story subscribed to sports wars on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening right now.

Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin

36:57 min | 1 year ago

Greg Ambrosius

"It's time to eat. Four sit down and get ready to consume an abundance of fantasy football knowledge from Ross, Tucker and Joe Dolan me now. On the fantasy, feast and podcast. Yeah, let's eat. Maybe it is the fantasy feast eating podcast presented by fantasy points dot com just use the glorious code feast all capital Letters. You can go against me and Joe in our July best ball. Ten draft I'm just about coming up on my tenth round pick year and our June best ball. Ten draft I'm Ross Tucker former NFL offensive Lineman, five teams seven years bunch of podcasts booger. McFarland Andrew Brandt were awesome on the Ross Tucker Football podcast this week yesterday we actually. Actually talked a little bit about betting on Golf I. Just Bet for the biggest bet on the Shambo. That's that's my only rule forbidding on golf and we talked about what Cam Newton means for the new. England Patriots Season Win total on the even money podcasts, but I must admit I am not the star of this show. That is Joe Dolan at F. G.. Underscore Dolan. He is the man owner everything surveyor editor, whatever fantasy points dot com code feast. That's the key and speaking of fancy points. DOT, com. Code Feast. We've got Joe Two more winners are I two winners for the July best ball ten draft Kevin Her, who is relentless now eighty sign up a fancy points dot com code feast. He's emailed me like four times with Amazon purchases, other things, relentless and Sean Davis. He's in his well now. He's fancy. Points Dot Com code feast, but he had a story. That overwhelmed me, and so he's in his well, so we're going to have four more episodes in the month of July, which means every? Episode here we will announce two new winners for our July Best Ball, ten draft and remember in August. That's the big daddy of them all. That's the Rose Bowl you up. That's the season long lead. You can enter to being against me and Joe. Joke morning. Good afternoon. Whatever happy to have you. It's morning. Still here. Ross the same with you. I don't know when people are going to be watching this, but it's good. It's good to be with you. You might notice that throughout the next couple of weeks. The the room behind me is going to get gradually emptier because I moved to South Carolina in weeks. You and I probably should have to have a talk about that Ross because my schedule might be a little thrown off, but but I will always have time for drafting I will I will absolutely guarantee you that or my phone I, as a matter of fact. Deck in our in our current best ball ten, which has been a room full of sharks, as I might imagine, I'm not getting really any good values, but but it's been a lot of fun, and and certainly it'll be fun for up for our listeners to to join and compete against us. It's the best. The mock draft is dead Ross. The fantasy mock draft is dead. They're useless. You have to play ball. I cannot wait next week. We'll go over our June draft, and you can tell me where I went wrong where you went wrong. Because that is real life experience in the decisions that all of our listeners are making right now, and we'll be making in August I don't use this word. loosely. I. Think I used it for John Hanson. And I'M GONNA. Use It for today's guest. Joe and that is Greg Ambrosia at Greg Ambrosius on twitter mentioned earlier, you said Joe you can see us now. We have our own youtube page. YouTube dot com slash Ross Tucker, NFL and Intern Casey does a great job of posting the clips to our twitter and instagram at Ross Tucker pod and I'm glad we have intern Casey because Greg and brochures. A is a living legend in the fantasy industry and be his background is awesome. I have actual NFL game balls. That like I got. I am helmets Joe has fantasy points, and these all swag out, and yet here we got a guy coming on as a guest Greg Ambrosius at Greg Ambrosia on twitter, and he's got a clay us fat head, and a packers, fat head right over each of his shoulders. Greg Dot is legit. My friend Aaron Rodgers had had his right here to my right as well so the whole office is geared to this I mean. Mean I've lived my whole life here in Wisconsin, sixty years and people are like. Why do you still live? There is because I have an umbilical cord attached to Lambofield Dad bought season tickets in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty eight, so they've been in our family for what's that sixty two years and it's now under my name element. Dad's passed away, but the packers are embedded in our soul. I bleed green and gold. It's everything to me. So I got to say two things just off of that. Greg first of all and I've said this before I'll say it again. I love the state of Wisconsin like. If I didn't live in Pennsylvania, I'd probably live in Wisconsin, let's start with the fact that how much they care about the badgers and packers which I love Ben. Let's get to their food groups okay beer. Ice Cream Braatz cheese is like these are my people, and they happen to be the nicest people the history of the world. It's crazy like I went to Madison one time. Greg was walking up and down state. Street I me like every other restaurant or store is an ice cream or a beer place, and then you get to the Student Union Joe on campus and Joseph, Penn State Guy. I Love Penn State Joe, but the Student Union at Wisconsin is on the water, and they sell beer and brought stare I would've gone to class exactly zero times my whole time in Wisconsin, if I'd been a badger while I'll say one thing. I asked you if you've ever been to Lambofield and you. You said not so. I'm going to have to take a guess I. Think Someday because experience at Lambofield is so fantastic. It was built right in the middle of the city, so there's homes all the way around Lambeau field, so you park in the backyard of people's homes. Yes, there is a parking lot there, but it only holds about twenty thousand people right now and so you're always parking and people's backyard. Everybody's tailgating together. It's such an experience, and then you can't get out after the game because the traffic is too much, so your refi you do it all over again. You stay for another two hours, so it's. It's a twelve hour day when you go to a packer game. I've never been lambofield. You know I don't know if you're. Going to I've never been I've never even been to Wisconsin. So this is, this is actually sounding really appealing, because frankly to me, places and things sound really fun right now. Sound really appealing a so. I need to get out to lamb boats. Some point Joe Ross made it sound in Wisconsin in the summer and the fall in. He hasn't been here in December January. Bad here. The only place I'd want to be in Wisconsin in December. January is lambeau because I feel like I would get the experience, but I really hate snow I. Hate it like I've lived in Pennsylvania New Jersey. My entire life to South Carolina and a couple of weeks, and if I never see another snowflake I'll, I'll be happy like I. Really Hate Snow so starmer sounds good in Wisconsin. You can have it in December, January. Though I'll tell you the best game ever at Lambofield is two thousand seven playoff game against Seattle. Seattle it was a game. They WANNA at home and it started snowing thirty two degrees, and it started snowing right before the start of the game, and it was just comfortable warm, and it was snowing. You felt like you're in a snow globe and far was fantastic that game. I think we want forty five to fourteen than lost to the giants the next week when the was below zero and Tom Coughlin's face got all frostbite, but that Seattle game it was like watching it in a snow globe was just heaven it was. So we're GONNA. Get into your thirty one years in fantasy industry, which is insane. Greg, and we're also GONNA get your best ball tips, and your high stakes tips momentarily, but you gotTA. Tell me I. I just got to ask you this. He signed his contract this week. It's four years fully guaranteed I. Need to know as a packers fan, your thoughts on them taking Jordan love in the first round draft I have to be honest with the is watching it that night and I went right into the bathroom. I thought I was going to throw up. I mean I am a packers fan. Through and through and I'll trust the management here. I think Goudie knows what he's Doin', but it's too early. I mean he signed for four more years. He wants to play at least forty, two forty three is gonNA be like Brady's not going to be able to walk away from it. It's like far. He kept saying he was going to retire. He couldn't walk away from it this. This is what they do and I thought it was too early. I mean this team isn't one player away from winning it all, but they haven't. We went to the NFC championship game, certainly a wide receiver, certainly linebacker Patrick Queen I thought if they were gonNA move up I. Mean Patrick, Queen, what about a perfect linebacker for them? I think it was premature now that being said. There are certain bloggers who really breakdown the tape, and if you watch some the love from two thousand, eighteen he makes throws light Patrick Mahomes. I hate to say that, but really some weird angles throw a strong arm than two thousand nineteen made really bad decisions is just very very bad interceptions. So I do think good is thanking less than a week ago from far to Rogers the law for forty five years, bears have gone through forty five quarterbacks and forty five years. This would be a great transition. Rogers is a play emotionally and he could take this the wrong way. He could take it the right way, but he could take it the wrong way to and. That's what I'm worried about, but. I didn't like the pick I really don't but I spoke for fifteen years from now talking about it and I'm wrong. So Greg. You now work for sports hub games network, right and I imagine you're going to give tips. Both for best ball and high stakes and Greg is the guy that gets us all hooked up with the free entries. Four best ball tends the ones that you guys are going to fancy points. Dot Com, using the code fees to try to enter Greg's one. That sets all that up. Up So. He's the man with the plan so I. Guess The question I is what is sports hub games network, and how are you both the best ball and a high stakes expert, or at least able to give tips on both? Yeah, that's a great question I mean. I started high stakes in two thousand and four I was working with a company called crazy publications, but here's what's happened, Ross. The government's gotten involved where they want to license everybody. And why do they want a license? Everybody because they saw fan Doolan draftkings taking every single ad on ESPN, two, thousand, sixteen, and the legislators, sitting home, or like holy cow. We're not getting any of that money. And they felt that every fantasy game operator was fan, Doolan draft kings, and they could take some money from them, so they started passing laws that we couldn't allow certain residents like Pennsylvania and New York unless we got licensed in those states now. We're not doing anything illegal or Being a legitimate company there's a federal law called you Ouija that was passed in two thousand and six, and you have to guarantee the prize as you have to do a whole lot of things we are following that, but all these states are now some money, grab and so game operators like my fantasy league dot com. They're called MFL tens dot com. You remember that this company was running them, but they had to get licensed in eighteen different states and a ten dollar product where you make five dollars on each league wasn't economical, and so they felt that they couldn't go any more. Our company was started in two thousand, seventeen by a guy by the name of Rob Fifty and he's in the hall famous as well. He's been in the industry since ninety four ninety five, and he felt it was time to put all pay to play games. Fantasy Games under one umbrella. You get one licensed, and now you do the high stakes you do. The best ball towns do season long. You do all of this, so we're kind of in a buying mode. Ross were trying to combine a lot of pay to play fantasy games under one umbrella so that we have to pay one stupid state license for all of our companies. Came about. God it okay that that makes sense. Joe Got something yet. Greg Still I wanNA bring it into the modern day here. You're obviously talking about the laws, but. Obviously we have stumped going on in this country right now. You might have heard about it. And the fantasy industry it's a it's a big time business. It's a customer service business, entertainment business, and our industry is completely. On these games being played, so could you talk about some of the challenges that you've had and I know this is a fantasy football podcast up, but with with the baseball contests at the MDC. with with the NFC. What are some of the the meetings in the contingencies in decisions that you've had made in the car in the current climate? Yeah, that's a good question. Joe and we run the national fancy. Baseball Championship is a high stakes baseball. We've done since two thousand four between all our high stakes. We've. We've given away over fifty four million dollars since two thousand, four and baseball. We are really the only game in town. We have a fantastic am a fifteen team league format. It's very difficult, and our guys are just so committed over the last sixteen years in baseball, going away twenty five million dollars, and we were having a record year. I mean site we fifteen thousand teams signed up in high stakes, and we were going to New York City to host the live events in Manhattan right across the street from Madison. Square Garden. Flew there March twelfth? They had the big. East tournament. It a halftime of one of the Games, and it was like apocalyptic people were just running everywhere to get taxis. Everything was being shut down. We had to shut down contests the day before the live events. We had contests at the Balaj you Las Vegas. We had to cancel them. We've canceled all of our contests that already had drafted because it's a sixty game season right now. It's just not fair. And we refunded three and a half million dollars, because we didn't think it was fair for the customers to play sixty game sees it when they felt they're gonNA play one hundred sixty two game season, so we are now revenue games and trying to get new revenue, but. It could be lethal for us. It really good right now. Football is red hot. We have never had sign ups like we have Right now in best ball tens on the national. Fantasy Football Championship. GonNa blow everything out. A, we could end up refunding everybody and what people don't realize. We have credit card fees. We still pay the licensing. They still charge us that. We have ten people working on this product full-time. We have salaries so. It's scary. It is very very scary for our whole industry and content could go under games could go under. It's scary right now, but we're moving forward and hoping that. Open our country and our government gets a little smarter. Greg well said. I shudder to think what could happen to a lot of different industries quite frankly media otherwise. We're no football, season. It's scary. The good news is on some level right now. At least there are some sporting events out there. There's NASCAR golf yesterday on the money podcast. We talked about betting on golf and you can do it.

You're not supposed to buy beer until you're twenty one There are some states now where you can buy. We don't believable I can do ten minutes on the disclaimer voice. Joe! I want to get back into fantasy I wanNA. Talk Great, you Kinda I'm kind of intrigued by the high stakes thing now. So, explain to me, the high stakes thing and what your tips are for people that are listening that might have that kind of disposable income. Yeah. Our high stakes is unbelievable I. Mean we started in two thousand and four, twelve hundred and fifty dollar entry fee and I just thought as joe is back at that time, a lot of companies are going with free. They wanted the names. They WANNA customers than he would sell advertising online or whatever, but there were starting to be a trend where people were tired of their locally. Because it came down to trading, some guy would make some weird trade in your local league. Your body would win the title that way and you're like. I'm sick of this you know, and so I started the national, Fancy Baseball Championship as a pay contest twelve hundred and And fifty dollar entry fee, but it was all live. You had to come to Las Vegas draft live. We did some in Chicago draft live. York draft live. We held simultaneous events, and the first year was a great idea. Hundred Thousand Dollar Grand Prize but people were skeptical, and we did not sell out, and I'm not kidding I never been more stressed in my life at work for a company that was an employee owned company, so not only was our company losing money, but people who I work with our employees. We're going to lose money on this. My wife worked there, so she was going to lose money on this thing, but we guaranteed the BREIDA's. Radio event. The contest was fantastic. In the next year. We sold it out. Every year since then we've sold out that contest and we've added more and more now. We've got a lot of online championships three hundred and fifty dollar entry fee when two hundred thousand dollars in football national fantasy football championship. Has Live events at the Bellagio in Las Vegas where at Manhattan at the Stewart, hotel and we have many different national contests. Two Hundred Thousand Dollar Grand Prize. Two Hundred Thousand Dollar Grand Prize one hundred thousand dollar Grand Prize, eighty thousand dollar grand price, so a lot of different formats, ten teams twelve team fourteen team. It's while Joe knows it's just wild and again fifteen twenty thousand teams one of our desk. The Platinum Twenty Thousand Dollar Entry Fee twelve teams under seventy thousand. Dollar League pride. Some people have more discretionary income than we do, but there are people out there who love the game have a little more income. Have confidence in themselves. They can put twenty down to win. One hundred, seventy thousand, and that's where this market is going right now and We have people from lawyers doctors to just normal people who just love to play. We have customers with their DADS. They bring their sons their contests. They're sitting there at their nine year old. They let him announce the picks it's. It's a fabulous. Greg, how do we win? How do we win one of the tips? Like what? What are the keys in the best ball draft? Well I'll give you the best ball if I knew the keys, the high-stakes I'd be on the other side of the table I'd be winning over there. Instead of running it I can't compete with our guys Joe knows these guys are serious and subscribe in a fantasy points dot com. They've been filing John. Hansen forever. That's what they. They do and so I can't get your point, sir, that's all as a fantastic game and there's different strategies for that best ball draft you set back and the computer picks ramp optimal lineup every year every week. So you have to take guys like maybe Sean Jackson. Who isn't a great player in starting every week, but he could go off one week and then get your zero the next week. Well, that's good. That's what you want, right? You know McCall. Is One of these guys I think can go off? I always liked Tariq Hill because he could go off one week, but then he doesn't have a lot of consistent points. Dominate Sirius. XM show yesterday. Who would you take? Will Your Jones or Tyreek hill both want right next to each other and season-long drafts? I'd take Khalil in season long every week. He just seems to get five six seven catches. You'll get your fifteen to twenty five points, but tyree could give thirty point game a forty point game. That's the type of strategy that Jews in best ball. That's different from season long Greg one of the things that NFC players have to navigate in some of your contests is the third round reversal and. People who aren't familiar with the I think A. Player people have been in the industry like I have for a while. are very familiar with the concept and where it came from, but third round reversal in your big time contests. Could you explain what that means to to the listeners who might just be hearing about the NFC in your contests? Third round reversal is for the customers of balances out all twelve draft picks so if you play fantasy football in two, thousand, five in two, thousand and six, you know that if you look at the number one pick, you took Ladainian Tomlinson. You were winning. Plain simple he was that dominant, and before him priest Holmes was like that Marshall Faulk was like that. It was the luck of the draw almost as much as anything else. And if you've got the first bit, you were GonNa. Do very well. And so we. We, were running a fourteen team contests at that point, and if you got picked thirteen or fourteen as soon as draft spots came up I got a phone call saying I'm done. I can't win. You can't win from thirteen and fourteen, so we're like. How can we balance the cell? So we had heard about third round reversal on we instituted in two thousand and seven. Basically what it does is go wonder fourteen in round one fourteen to one in round two and back to fourteen fourteen to one in round three. Over the last thirteen years, the number of league champions in our fourteen team and we use it in our twelve team, as well is consistent. It'll be three from this spot three, three, four two. It's unbelievable how that is bound stout, and we use it in basketball as well because there was a time when Lebron was the number one in our other guys, it balances out so twelve team league one to twelve twelve to one twelve to one then serpentine from that point on, and it really balances out every draft spot. That's interesting. I did not know a lot about that Greg. I'm glad Joe Asked you. That jaw got a question for you. While we're on with Greg, and that is, why are you not dominating these high stakes leaks? You know as much as anyone. The money up Joe and cash. Shane well I I first and foremost I'm actually doing a high stakes leagues a bunch of them this year I had a beat Joe Dolan. Last year with the NFC was with fantasy, free agents and also. I've been doing I've been doing the cut line I've been also doing the best ball championships and I think greg. Probably closer to the season will be getting involved in some of the some of the season, long kind of formats that have full waivers and setting your lineups and all that stuff, but. Ross I just got a fully admit like some of the high stakes. Guys in Greg knows this you can know as much as anybody about fantasy, but the high stakes guys, you have to be able to be willing a to execute what might be considered a ludicrous strategy, great and be very. Very confident in doing so and you have to not be able to be afraid to go against the grain, and you know one of the things that I used to really hate doing. When I get done with draft is posting I like to be transparent Rossio. See me I'll post. Best Ball results on my twitter all the time and One of the things you have to be able to withstand if you do that is everybody's GonNa. Tell your team sucks like you could have saquon Barkley George kiddle. Prime Jerry, rice, and and and Lamar Jackson on your team and somebody will tell you you're team sucks on twitter. And then you know, sometimes, people will say stuff like no. Those receivers are weak and you look at it. You're like yet. They kind of are, but you have to be confident in your strategy, and you have to be able to be competent. Saying look I know. My team looks different after a draft, but there's a reason I did this. There was a method to my madness, and I think the high stakes fires in Greg. You know this well. They're able to get over the mental block of executing a strategy, and maybe they can't put it into words perfectly. And maybe they're not interested in putting it into words the way I am. That's you know. I talk a lot I write a lot. That's what I do, but maybe they're not interested in that. They just WANNA play. I'm sure you see a lot of off-the-wall strategies. I'm sure zero R B was was popular in NFC formats before it ever made it to the mainstream. What can you tell us about that? In terms of in terms of both successful I stick slice. Sean Siegel. Who did that are event? Where he went us? First, four or five picks were all wide receivers at that point, it was tough for that three down back to be on many teams and PR was getting wide receivers at twenty, two twenty two points per game and running backs were really at sixteen to eighteen, so he loaded up with four wide receivers, and he does dominate in fact, not only do win are. Are Hundred and fifty thousand Grand Prize. At that time he took second as well he had multiple teams, and he just killed, and he was on road visit. He still is, and he talks about it, but at that time the wide receivers p P. are people just weren't catching on? They were getting three to four or five more points than the running backs at that point, so he loaded up again he gave. Here's the. The thing with high stakes you mentioned, Joe they're confident. These guys are gamblers. They're not afraid to take a chance on an injured guy who might come back or a second year wide receiver. Who they think is gonNA. Break out this year. I draft baseball on the buddy of mine named John Giles who's in our hall of fame I can't stand drafting with them or an auction. I Hate I hate every second of it. It and people know it because he takes chances all the time that I just can't do I'm more conservative as the draft or I really am. These guys are not afraid to bump guys up two rounds from their ADP, and they do that and when you say when you get to the live events throughout ADP's these guys are GonNa. Get the guys that they think are going to break out this year now greg. Follow up Ross. Civil last year in the NFC for sure, I think robust are be probably actually because there are so few major running back injury. The waiver wire was as barren all years. It's been just kind of the ebb and flow of fantasy. But one other thing that what you were talking about kind of stands out to me and I'm not really sure. This. This can apply to county. Just your season-long Leagues where you're playing twenty five bucks with your buddies, but. Is there any utility to finishing six in an NFC league? Like. Does anybody give you credit for that like it, so you're what you're basically saying is your players. The best players are not afraid to finish twelfth. Because they think that means they're. They have a better shot to finish I. They're not afraid to swing for the fences. Because occasionally they'll hit a home run correct, so we do keep lifetime standings, which is important to our guys. They WANNA finish. You know lifetime standings once. You've done in sixteen seventeen years. They don't worry about finishing last. They are taking their chances because they are going to try to win at all I. Mean Not only I in their league. They're hitting a home run for the overall titles that's playing for. We'll greg most importantly. We want to thank you for coming on the show. Your email and your background and you I mean you have been. A pioneer in the industry, which is why I said you are a legend, we are all very appreciative of the best ball. Tends I'm either going to take Robbie, Anderson or Shod Para me with my next big I really like Robin. Here's number shot. Perriman more than anybody out there I don't know I don't care I do so. I'm doing it I'm like I'm high stakes Bro. I'm like hi I'm going for the guys that other people don't Greg. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks for having me, and all that means that complement is I'm old. I've been around. Forty years, this industry is and I've been in thirty. One years I'm blessed them lucky and go back all. Thank you much. There is Greg Ambrosius. Make sure you check him out on twitter at Greg Ambrosius. What an awesome! Guy Joe and like I mean it must be for some for you. You must like whether it's John Hansen and brochures. You must love to like hear. These guys stories from back in the day like overtime. Oh, absolutely a lot of times. I'll Jon Hansen because I remember growing up watching football and and when I I was. I was born eighty six. So you know I grew up in the era of NFL prime time, and just like where these guys? We didn't have the access that we have. We didn't have red zone channel and we didn't. We didn't get the CDs guys play every week. So the highlights were were all we had, and I love talking to John Hansen about old days in fantasy. Oh, how good was Emmett? Smith, and how really good was jerry rice and some of the old calls they made but I love I love when Greg comes on, either the Sirius Xm radio show or or or the podcast. Because aren't the do much actually. Actually I can listen to them. Talk and Greg's great source on ADP as well like I love having them on a and talking to him about some of the recent trends because high stakes guys, they're ahead of the curve when it comes to the trend, so It's a good way to look we use. We use that at fantasy points. We use the NFC ADP because we think it's the best source of four ADP because you know. These are guys who are putting up real money, and they're the ones who should be moving the market so I love hearing him talk about eighty p because he starts to really understand Understand like what the trends are coming. Matter of fact, one thing I'm going to have to ask them here over email is. What's he seeing on Cam? Newton because I in his NFC contact because that was one of the big moves that happen this past weekend, so he's a great resource on all that stuff as well. I'm glad you brought that up, Joe. Before we we end today, show I. WanNa get your thoughts on Cam Newton at this point as as a fantasy. Layer. So I actually just took him as my second quarterback. Believe it or not Ross in an NFC best all draft champions for twenty five. Thousand Dollar Prize I took him as my second quarterbacks. I think two rounds after I took Josh Allen and then I handcuffed him with. Jared stood him because. Look I find it hard to believe that the Patriots are actually GonNa Sign Cam Newton, and then go with jared sin, but they paid cam nothing, if cans not healthy. If he doesn't take to the offense, they can just get rid of them. so I- handcuffed Jarret Stidham, but you have to acknowledge it raises the ceiling of the Patriot offense and the thing, I really like what it does is I think it helps the backfield big time. James White has been kind of a guy slipping through the cracks. We know you can catch sixty seventy eighty balls a year, but you wonder. Oh, God without. Tom Brady, what's going to happen well? Cam Newton is different player than Tom Brady. It goes without saying, but he's had years. Recent years were thrown the ball to Christian. McCaffrey he was very productive doing that so I think it opens up for James White I. Do not doubt at all that Josh mcdaniels and Bill Belichick have looked at the ravens offense, and although Cam Newton at this stage of his career, Lamar Jackson far different players especially obviously cam size. Size and running styles different than Lamar Jackson. I don't doubt some of that designed run. Stuff is going to find its way into the Patriots offense, so I'm very interested late in my draft adding Damian Harris the second year player out of Alabama who played only ten snaps last year, but he was a third round pick Andoni. Michelle's coming off yet. More knee problems and foot surgery this off season, so I'm really interested in adding him. I think it raises the ceiling for for Julian. Edelman and a raised ceiling for a big body receiver like Nikiel Harry Siasi the rookie tight end and one guy that I don't want people to ignore. Not Saying draft him in the Tenth Eleventh Twelfth around I, took him in like the twenty eighth round in best ball draft champions, but they have one receiver on their roster. Who can run in his name is demure bird He was with the Arizona Cardinals last year. Apparently, he's been A. he impressed them with its speed, and in whatever they'd seen from him in meetings Sochi can run and that can help with Cam Newton a big arm quarterback so I think it raises the ceiling of the entire offense and I like it because it adds more players to a player pool. I'm willing to draft. Kind of out on the Patriots in general. I love it. Very well said Joe. That's type of analysis. You get at fantasy points you use the code feast all caps you get all Joe's knowledge. You get Greg Cosell. Who will be on tomorrow's Ross? Tucker football, podcast, talking coincidentally or not about the quarterback run game quarterback centric run game, and you get to try to go against me and Joe in our next best ball.

Just make sure you use the code feast when you go there so that they know that we sent you on. Ross tucker former. Nfl offense lime in a bunch of different podcasts. A bunch of different teams. I just football. And i dislike real jobs. So that's what. I'm all about trying to avoid a real job like they'll play joe. Let's dive right into it. People already know about spread the word by social media and they know about fantasy points dot com code fees. i want them to know about the chargers. And that miami dolphins miami. Hey look pretty good job. Yes he did and i thought it was weird. It came on the heels of an adam schefter report that was very curiously phrase and it was saying. Hey the dolphins made the move from two fits or from fits the to even though they thought it made them probably worse as a football team because they wanted to evaluate to. We'll know crap. Of course you want evaluate him but schefter had in there. That part of the reason was because they have a ton of draft picks and they wanna know if to was gonna perform well enough to be the guy now. The way i read that was it was kind of a self evident statement. Yeah of course you want to evaluate your rookie quarterback but it also read to me like this wasn't exactly a guy who was blowing them away in practice swell to. We talked about last week. How he didn't really need to do anything in that game against the rams there was no opportunity for him to get into a rhythm because the defense just dominated the game. He didn't look great. It didn't have to look great. It was a it was just a game. That was unique circumstances last week against arizona. He needed to look great in order for them to win the game and he did so impressive. Performance by to all things considered the problem with miami is. Miami is an absolute dumpster fire for for fantasy right now. Preston williams has the foot injury. So you don't know what's going on there the backfield's a mess is matt. Brita gonna play this week. Sal von ahmed was their best looking running back last week. Not exactly the type of situation. I want to delve into jordan. Our ad has ten carries for nineteen yards in that game and his yards per carry average goes way up on the season because he came in with under a yard per carry average. So it's a bad run game. Mike kosinski is a mediocre tight. End one the guy who i feel good about and pretty much the only guy i feel good about for fantasy for miami with preston williams injured is devante parker at this stage. When you consider all the weapons that to a dozen have An how he played last week against arizona. Think you have to be even a little bit more impressed. A guy to keep an eye on though especially preston williams is going to miss significant time Grant keep an eye on him. He's the return specialist but he had five targets the net game. They needed him. They traded isaiah right. They traded him as they afford. Excuse me they traded him to the patriots at the trade deadline so there is not a lot of wide receiver depths here and maybe takim grant can benefit from that on the other side. The chargers joe. I mean it's uncanny. How good herbert is and they still lose. Yeah i mean guys. Here's what happens sometimes for fantasy. I think justin jackson tweaked that knee on in warm ups on the first snap of the game and look he had been a guy. I lost a lot of money in the last week. 'cause i invested into justin jackson. It was a fluky injury. I don't know what's going to happen with that backfield. We're gonna have to keep an eye on reports this week. Kaelin balaj of all people comes out. Plays the best game of his. Nfl career taylor ballade revenge game by the way if you're interested in that At this stage this this backfield is a mess. We keep an eye. On the status of justin jackson and also the status of troy main pope who broke out in week number eight and then was unable to play last week. Because of a concussion so keep an eye on him but in this matchup justin herber. The pressure is going to be critical. I think he's going to get the ball out quickly to keenan allen you play those two guys every week. Hunter henry is snake bit. He cannot get in the end zone. But he almost had a touchdown late night. Game against the raiders. Keep an eye on the status of mike williams who got hurt on that near catch at the end of the game against the raiders. Does well so. The charges are team outside herber and allen. There's too many questions to answer as we record this on a wednesday. Let's get to the denver broncos and the las vegas raiders. The broncos format or formula. Right now is not great for winning football games but it is pretty good for wide receiver. Fantasy stats drew. Lock two weeks in a row has been a bust for three quarters and then in the fourth quarter absolutely blows up and puts up big numbers. And you know. I think you have to separate. Sometimes the reality from fantasy drew walks getting it done for fantasy right now. Even though i don't think he's playing all that great in reality it was awesome to see. Jerry jeudy breakout gave mill. He's now a wide receiver to for He's been getting open from what i understand week after week. Drew lock just not hitting him So i think that somebody is a wide receiver to wide receiver or three. Tim patrick is a low end wide receiver. Three it's not a bad match up here by any stretch of the imagination noah. Fant keep an eye on him. His is a problem. It looks like he's going to be okay but it look like a kind of a. I think he's almost had injuries to both ankles at this stage so keep an eye on noah fant status You could take a shot on k. j. hammer. But i don't necessarily trust drew lock. It's and targets last week. The problem for them the backfield did nothing against atlanta phillip lindsay carries for twenty three yards. But he didn't catch a football. Melvin gordon six carries for eighteen yards. He did catch a football but a conscious one. This split is now rendering both of them to be rb. Threes in an offense that has been getting off to slow starts for consistent fantasy productive. Other side the raiders raiders. I liked the raiders team. I like what is no snag doing. Joe what is going on now. He's catching football. That's always been the problem for him. He's always gotten open. Actually catching the football has been the big problem for nelson aguilar. He's a wide receiver three denver. Let's see what happens with. Aj boy a play this week. So he's nelson agholor. Somebody us henry ruggs i. You just can't use it. This twenty two edge paths. We know what you can do. Darren waller you play him every week. Derek carr is a -able quarterback in this matchup and in the backfield. Josh jacobs is an rb one at it. sometimes it's like pulling teeth with him. But fourteen carries sixty five yards and a touchdown last week. Think he's dealing with a little bit of a knee issue but he's planning through it and he's playing through it well. The wide receiver. Core for the raiders. A little shook up right now. Aguilar seems to be the guy that they trust the most on the perimeter. And i think he could keep rolling with him as a wide receiver three below arizona. I expect a lot of points. I expect a good fantasy performance here. Yeah you expect a lot of points. And sodas las vegas ross. This is a line of fifty six and a half. It's the highest of the week. I mean let's not put too fine a point on it. Let's not stand on ceremony here. Stardom start 'em all this storm all football game a josh allen. John brown stefan digs. Get him in their stardom cole. Beasley stardom you. He's been quite a little bit. Zack moss and devin. Singletary those guys. They're both kind of flex plays. I prefer moss at this stage but it seems like you have to get lucky. Buffalo was throwing the football buffalo throwing the football aggressively. Buffalo is going to continue to probe football. Josh allen is a different quarterback. When john brown's out there you're distorting them all in this passing game on the flip side we're looking at arizona. Stardom star them. all kenyan. Drake is back in practice this week. That's going to muddy up that backfield a little bit but that passing game man. Do i love this leak. Do you know ross. The kyla maries. Averaging twelve point eight fantasy points per game as a rusher alone this year. No but it doesn't surprise me that's two fantasy points per more than lamar jackson. Averaged as a rusher last year he is having a monster fantasy season and in addition to that he is starting to look really good as asser in terms of all around player. I know we had the fumble six against miami last week but in terms of all around play. I think kyle murray through the ball better against miami. Last week than i've seen him throw the ball in his. Nfl career that. That's a very good defense. And he picked apart the guy who i think's going to be the biggest beneficiary as he was against. Miami is christian kirk why because i think davies white can match up a shadow. A deondraye hopkins. That doesn't mean hopkins isn't gonna get his but last week. Christine kirk was the beneficiary of miami's coverage honing in on the andre options hopkins had just three targets christian kirksey. Getting white house opened down. The field christian kirksey kyla murray are going to be massively popular. In the year. They are speaking of the f. s. and speaking of a high total for that game we do both of those.

Joe while the saints got healthy last week i you know the numbers weren't all that huge for some of the key players in that game because they frankly didn't need to be because tom brady was just turning the ball over at a prodigious rate that we're not used to seeing from Tastes some hill. Obviously he's got fifty four yards rushing. But you know what you're doing with with the saints. You can play bruce in this matchup against san francisco with all their injuries. You play michael thomas. Emmanuel sanders is a wide receiver. Three alvin kamara is a wide receiver. One and if assuming a running back one and if you're desperate for a running back keep in mind new orleans nine point favorite in this game. Maybe you can throw latavius. Murray into your lineup. The saints are narrow. Fantasy team of jared cook. You can use as well even though adam trautmann got the end zone. But as i mentioned with tampa bay on our last podcast that was kind of a takeout kind of game for me. New orleans won that game by a margin. I don't think anybody could have anticipated even got genus into the game to throw a couple of passes i. I don't think that's going to happen again this week but new orleans should win this game pretty comfortably which opens things with abc. Murray in the run gamely What about the niners was playing for them. I haven't got a michael. Hasty was a big boss for them. last week. four carries for three yards. Jerick mckinnon rb two at this stage. They got him back in the lineup. After that bizarre couple of weeks Nick mullins quarterback. Richie james is the is the i. Guess the top receiver although brandon. I will probably play this week. As he comes off ovallis. It's a mess for the niners. I i use a wide receiver. Three mckinnon's a running back to i. Guess you can go with jordan reed but the problem is they get ross dwelling involved at tight end. I'd prefer to avoid both of them. The san francisco is one of those teams. That right now probably isn't helping you too much down the stretch for fancy. Let's get to seattle and la the rams and the seahawks feel that there could be a lot of points in a lot of fantasy performances in this one joe rossi should be setting the lines in vegas. Because i mentioned that the fifty six and a half for ball buffalo arizona's the highest of the week while this one's raped behind it at fifty five and a half and these two games are degrees of separation away from the from the rest of the field so these two games are going to be the games where you're going to see the most game stacks in dfs contests and that self evident. We talk about seattle every week. Decay metcalf is the safer play. Tyrod lock it. I thought lock. It was going to be the guy last week against buffalo. I was disappointed in his stat line. Although we almost add a couple of touchdown catches so. I'm not gonna freak out about that. Russell's almost made a huge. I on him on a kind of a sale route into the corner in zone. Russell wilson did not play well in that game. I don't expect that continue against the way against buffalo last week. I don't expect that's continuing against the rams but he came across wide receiver. One tyler lockett gets wide receiver to russell. Wilson's obviously a qb. One focus now is on the backfield. Does chris carson end or carlos hyde. Play this week if so each day. Dallas isn't even worth considering if they don't dj dallas who played a low number of the snaps because they were playing from behind. They put travis homer in their last week. I would think. Dj dallas once again is gonna be on the rb two radar if i'd carson can't play and on the other side with the rams joe yeah. They're coming off a disastrous performance. I mean jared goff threw sixty two passes but they were never competitive against the dolphins And then obviously they went on by. They gotta figure something. Now that this offense it looks like a ferrari but it drives like a civic and like civics reliable cars they move you know they. They put a lot of miles on but they're not going to be turning any heads but this looks like a civic that they took on pimp my ride and we're like hey let's put some lights there and a spoiler there and maybe give you some hydraulics and it. They do so much cool crab and it doesn't go anywhere. And i know the offense is still ranked i bought by devi away and the stats in traditional stature. But you're not crying poor house if you have. Robert was in cooper kupp for fantasy. but jared. there's just something missing with this offense not to keep check the status in the backfield. By the way of darrell henderson. Who left early against miami with a thigh injury body was going to have a big game. That week was not to be keep an eye on his status. Because that's going to dictate whether or not you can use malcolm brown and work at makers for fantasy as kind of lower end flex ones in cup against this past defense that got absolutely annihilated by the bills last week. Those guys are in your lineup. We know that Jared goff great. Quarterbacks streamer this week We know that. But they're still something missing with this rams offense if they're going to if they don't get off the schneide against seattle defense. They're not gonna get off the schneider at all. We great mcveigh's offense on a curve now but it just hasn't been impressing the on a consistent basis. Joe the next game is the cincinnati bengals and the pittsburgh steelers. We do expect ben roethlisberger to play in this in. The game is currently off the board at a lot of books because ben roethlisberger was close. Contact vance mcdonald's who tested positive for covid nineteen so he. This game is the board and a lot of books obviously benz dealing with the the knee injury. They said he entered both of his knees In that game against dallas they were not overly impressive. But you would think this is a get off the schneide type of game for for pittsburgh divisional game against the team that doesn't have a great defense in cincinnati all three of pittsburgh's op wide receiver. Juju diontae johnson chase claypool wide receiver twos. At this stage. Eric ebron a viable tight end streamer. He's been getting involved. In in the red zone especially recently So viable tight end streamer part of the problem for pittsburgh knows they have not been able to run the football at all james conner. The low end rb two right now. That's interesting. i honestly joe. Sometimes you say things. I didn't really realize yeah. They can't run it at all right now. it's been really bad. What about the bengals on the other side. Keep on the status of joe mixon. You would think he's back after they come off off the bye And it's a bad match joe burrow. But he's been throwing in a ton and he's been putting up a lot of numbers and you know we saw last week gilbert from dallas able to run around out there. Make some plays against pittsburgh. So i'm not denying. Joe joe burrow's ability to be relevant for fantasy this week Dallas a pittsburgh did not have slot corner. Mike elton last week with a shoulder injury that could be critical in this matchup. If he doesn't go. Because that would be a big boon for tyler boyd out of the slot for the sonetti bengals. If he doesn't go your boyd anyway. But it doesn't go boys avaiable wide receiver. One this week would be an interesting play for. Dfs because you might wanna avoid you know burrow on the passing game against against a steeler defense. But it doesn't go could be a big matchup for tyler. Boyd t higgins. Aj green both wide receiver. Threes this point and whichever of mix energy overnight starts for the bengals. There are there are running back to against the pittsburgh evens next up. We've got baltimore at new england. I'm curious to get your thoughts on the ravens and the patriots cam looked better. Jakobi meyers somebody our listeners. Joe i forget who it was tweeted me at. Ross tucker. Nfl he's at f dolan about jakobi meyers versus cole. Beasley thing what would you have said. I said what would you have said. Last week i would have said cole beasley this week. I'm saying jakobi meyers. Maybe just letting you know. I like in myers to kind of to travis. Full grown in philadelphia not not stylistically but like in that philadelphia drafted. Jj vega whiteside to be there next x after. Alshon jeffery has not been the case has not produced before gomez if. Jj whiteside was doing with travis. Fulcrum is doing. You'd be like good. You know you you know you passed on decay metcalf. That's not great but good pick. He's producing so they've got that from him. In new england jakobi meyers is producing at a level. That they probably wanting to kill harry produce. And if the harry was doing this it'd be great pick but jakobi meyers. The guy actually produces it is clear. That cam newton looks better throwing the ball to jakobi meyers in the same way. The carson wentz looks better when he's throwing the ball traffic welcome. It is somebody that cam. Newton trusts the jakobi meyers right. Now for me in this matchup. He's pretty much only patriot. I wanna play damian harris dealing with chest injury. The rest of that backfield is a mess. It's jakobi meyers or bus for me. Although cam newton believe it or not has five a five. Gb one games in his seven starts this year based on the way he has played. You probably wouldn't expect that. That is the upside of the rushing. That cam newton gives you. He certainly looked better last week. Jakobi meyers has become his go-to guy. Upper damian harris did some good things go to rate or just too many of them. Yeah they have too many backs harris got hurt and harris. Doesn't here's the other problem with them. Sony michelle has been designated to return off. Irr so he can come back at any point. So that's that's that could be another wrench that backfield and this offense simply isn't good enough to sustain multiple fantasy running backs okay last but now over the ravens a or they are broken. I mean they're broken offensively. Lamar jackson is not throwing the ball. Outside the numbers at all it is killing. hollywood brown. Mark andrews has been a mediocre tight end starter. Lamar jackson has been a mediocre. Fantasy quarterback the run game was atrocious against indianapolis. Now i don't think new england is going to stuff that run the way The way indianapolis did is a matter of fact. I think this is a great game. For baltimore's run. Game to off the schneide because new england according to football outsiders has the second worst. Run defense in the entire. Nfl so we'll see what the status is a mark ingram and there's the other problem though they have too many damn running backs it marketing boy. They got three running backs. I don't know who to trust here so for me. It's lamar jackson half to start them. You have to start mark. Andrews and hollywood brown's a wide receiver three but until we learn more about that backfield verbal about any of them. Jk dobbins has the hundred yards against pittsburgh and then he goes. Nothing against indianapolis is great. Run defense that offensive line is a problem for for the ravens. More jackson is a problem for the ravens. They are broken offensively and they are not helping you for fantasy in any way whatsoever. Minnesota is helping you for fantasy in fact if you have dalvin cook joe you are winning leagues kenny. Do it again chicago. Obviously you're playing them. We begin chicago again. I mean you're obviously playing him. I wouldn't be chasing the two hundred yards this week. He's not on the main slate by the way a chicago. According to football outsiders devi away has the seventh best. Run defense in the nfl. A green bay was twentieth in that department. Detroit twenty fifth so. There's very clear upgrade here of in in terms of quality of defense. But that doesn't change the way. Mike zimmer mike zimmer has played his dream the last couple of weeks running the ball on like sixty four percent of their offensive plays the last two weeks. That is mike. Zimmer dream and it is crushing adam dealing and justin jefferson. That being said. I think they might have to throw it a little bit more because i think chicago's run. Defense is going to be more stout we saw which cognitive derrick henry last week two weeks in a row chicago plays the two most old school foundation offenses in the nfl tennessee. And minnesota two teams that really build on the run game and one running back chicago against derrick henry last week and they do it. Yes you're playing. Dalvin cook on actually thanked minnesota might need more from. Its passing game this week against the bears. Let's get to the bears. I mean they're a tough watch their atop fantasy team. Joe tough there really tough loss. The offensive line's huge problem. David montgomery is in the concussion protocol for chicago. That's a problem and by the way he has an extra day to get ready. But if you're looking to play. Montgomery he doesn't get cleared. He can get cleared monday and play the game but if he doesn't get cleared by sunday you're going to have to make a different decision on david. Montgomery he has he has or be one usage and low end rb two production heart of that is on him. Part of it's on the offensive line art. It's on the quarterback here now. Fortunately nick foles threw the ball bunch last week fifty two times. I don't think anybody would have thought at that game then. He threw for three thirty five and two touchdowns but he had to against tennessee because they were playing for behind. Don't know if that's going to be the case this week. If montgomery doesn't go. And they rule him out ryan all is probably going to be their top running back. He caught a touchdown pass. Last week alan robinson is a wide receiver. Won- darnell mooney is a wide receiver. Three this week jimmy. Graham you can play them as a tight end one but as you said ross it is pulling teeth with this offense the productions there at the end but good morte tough watch.
