"Which is last in the league over 40 last three weeks, so this defense has been spiraling downhill. For the last several weeks started out bad has just gotten worse. Dustin Hopkins comes on for a 45 yard attempt. It'll be spotted on the far side. Here's the snap. The whole kicked on its way. It was like a golf shot. Got too far underneath it with the wedge, and he punches it right. He was 8 11 on the season, having made one earlier. Well doubt just misjudged that one badly. That was hit Tres ways. Hand. I think is what happened the way that ball came out. I think waited his hand out of the way. As a holder. You gotta get that. Well play. It looked like it was clean. Just get too far. The Cowboys will take over with Ben DeNucci in a quarterback, seventh round. Rookie 23 years of age, finished collegiately and James Madison Pollard bouncing off the right side cuts back to the inside and take it down there as they cross the 40 near the 42 yard line. Several Lawrence, who was elevated from the Washington practice squad. Tackle would not surprise me. If We've seen the last of music Eulalia. Well, this is Yeah, This is the second straight. Siri's that Pollard has started. Siri's so I think you're right. And when you consider the injury situation can't afford to lose him. Takes the handoff again. Running to his right. Maybe a yard yard and a half on that Carrie. Ronald Darby. On the tackle Cowboys trying to run out the clock. That's how bad it's gotten. At this point. They may be racing to put all these guys in bubble wrap to try to kiss you help the players they've got. From getting hurt. Dropping back to pass and down it goes. Sack number six.

"There's two things that I have to have to take a handcuff or to pick one up one they have to be cheap and and in the case of Tony Pollard that example he was a lot a lot. Of Than I expected him to be. And then the second is after clear backup there can be no ambiguity because you I mean if you're high picked running back, it's hurt early in the year you're already in a bad spot if they get hurt late in the year. If there's any ambiguity, you might not be the handcuff anymore. The Guy who thought he was in August might not be anymore. So I don't know where there's really valued gets brought into early injury I. Guess There's some value, but it's like well, you're already kind of in a bad spot. Benny smells seems to clearly be the number two they really really like him similar to Pollard it doesn't seem like there are a ton of those situations this year though okay. All right. So then that brings us to this. Question Right. WHO's more valuable. Some of these guys are kind of handcuffs, but there are in the. Bosses Scott Chase Edmunds that group where they might have some standalone value. Or these other running backs who are owned in fewer leagues I just find these ownerships interesting. So if you're sitting there. And you're wondering if we should hang onto a backup running back, you're probably not going to start or take a chance on a guy like Josh Kelley who's more valuable. Okay. So the five running backs I highlighted here that are all. In sixty four percent rostered and sixty, four percent or more of leagues. The tavis Murray Alexander Madison Tony Pollard Boston Scott and chase Edmunds. Okay. latavius is eighty nine percent roster. The others are in the sixty five range Madison Pollard Scott Edmonds. Would you keep them or would you drop them for any of these players who are managed rostered in less than fifty percent of leaks? Daryl. Henderson. Damian. Harris. Chris Thompson Daryl Williams Josh Kelley Justin Jackson Divino Zig James Robinson that list again Darryl Henderson Damian Harris. Any of the Jacksonville running backs, Daryl? Williams Josh Kelly and Justin Jackson. Let's take oath Zippo Harris, and. Jackson off the list because I'm not I'm not keeping them in the case of Harris keep him if I have an I. R. Spot but otherwise I'd rather spend that roster spot on. Another running back who could have some breakout potential early on in the season and that list. The. The running backs with early season break-up potential include. It would include Daryl Williams. It would include pretty much everybody else that you named James Robinson is absolutely on that list Darrell Harrison might not play in week one he's he might play in week one he would be he's like a better version of Damian Harris because. I almost figure if you're if you're stashing him, you're doing it for the first month because you wanna see what you get out of them and it goes without saying that almost anybody that you named is going to get cut if there is a really good player that comes up off the waiver wire that we've all completely missed and you lost in week one so that you can pick them up easily. I pretty much agree with those. dedications. This is interesting because Murray Madison Pollard and Edmonds from Mural really close mentioned Scott I have a to your higher but I have Kelly in that tier above with Scott. So He's one that I think I would prefer to all of these guys other than Scott. The Alvin Kamara owner? Would you drop Latavius Murray for Josh? Kelley? Would not no I think I think Pollard Addison Murray and Scott in full P. PR and maybe half PR and maybe Don P R. Okay. Find those four for sure you gotta hold onto especially if you've got the star in front of them I think I I would I would Kelly over Murray in that scenario I know it's a little bit and goes against. What you guys spoke just said but I think I wouldn't, and that was also to know the Daryl. Williams in. Robinson for me are both in that group that the tier with Madison and and those guys. So if you prefer one of them, I don't have a huge issue with it. Yeah I would say that with all of those running backs, I mentioned being roster and less than fifty percent of Leagues Henderson. Harris. Well let's let's forget about Harris Zibo and Justin Jackson Right Henderson Thomson Daryl Williams Josh Kelley James Robinson their own in twenty to forty nine percent of leagues. Hopefully you can make room for them. Okay. Hopefully, there's maybe they could crappy wide receiver that you have or something we're going to talk about some players who are owned in or Harasser in too many leagues but. I don't know I see Dave. I. See five running backs. What is it? It's Henderson Thomson Williams Kelly Robinson five running backs in less than fifty percent of the roster and less than fifty percent of leagues. That should be should be yeah. I'm not saying they should be a hundred percent rostered now but but it's an opportunity right now. Absolutely. Well, I, don't know about Henderson getting that opportunity. For, fantasy managers is an opportunity to get to get a running back. Lake I think I'd rather roster Robinson for example, who's the running back that no one really knows about we could we could introduce everybody to him if you wanted to. But no one really knows who he is and no one might want to know who he is because he might be a starter for Jacksonville, but he's part of a committee in Jacksonville where they're going to play from behind in Jacksonville where their offensive line. Makes Washington feel better about their offensive line. It's he's not a great pass catcher certainly not compared to Chris Thompson but I would still rather have him just in case just in case he ends up being the reason why the Jaguars give the Colts A run for their money and week one and all of a sudden he took into a potential breakout who by week four week five we ended up starting. Okay all right. We got a lot more coming up including some fab tips had to get to the season. If you're managing your fab the most over rostered players, the fantasy cops and I want to ask you guys who's moved the most in the ranking since training camps opened. There's one player in particular that I that I really wanNA focus on here that starting to think I may have overreacted a little bit about get your thoughts on it but you know it's been a while since I have. Worked on a resume thankfully knock on wood or cover letter something like that. I do send important emails at work not the ones that I send to you know Dave, Ben?.

"Brown. Brown. Yeah. Thank you the wide receiver yes. So. If you drafted Madison Pollard, Edmondson, you don't have the starting running back, just lottery tickets and we get to the by weeks whilst week four comes around. I'm just wondering how long people can can stash them, and even in we want is there's a huge performance in week one you need to pick someone up is that is that the player you're dropping I'm just very curious to see how this whole thing plays out. Those guys that level I don't think should be those are definite stashes Daryl Williams who actually might be started as a flex and week one but is kind of stash two. Okay. So Aj Brown Ryan Tannehill takes over Aj. Brown goes for six catches sixty four yards on eight targets against the chargers in Tanna hills I start. At that point. Twenty, five percent rostered. Twenty five percent let's see. Let's see where he was the following week. and See I don't really remember how many I can was drafted in. Fifty sixty seventy percent of leagues I don't remember. Yeah I'm not sure by, be surprised. He was forty one percent roster the following week, and he had two catches for eleven, yards and a touchdown. So and then he really liked went off right. So you had your chance to get. Aj Brown. Last year that happens I. Mean You could talk about stashes all you want but roster crunches exist and you have to drop guys and sometimes it comes back to bite you for sure it's tough. It's. A lot of times there's not really You know you don't know if it's a right or wrong answer. Especially when you're talking about like your handcuff. England. Right and that's why I would rather stash players that I think and this is a bit of a guessing game with a lot of these guys because we haven't seen them. But I would rather stash guys that I think are good because if they get the opportunity, I think it'd be great as opposed to just my handcuff who I don't really like that. Much. Okay Ban were there any others from Dave they wanted to let us know on more dave is on Paris Campbell as a stash. He is there a colts wide receiver that you're on? is a stash whether it's Campbell or someone else? I would probably rather stash Michael Pittman But only because I think he kind of profiles, the Reds Big Red, zone guy that could fill the Eric Ibran role if he hits. I don't I there are smart smart people who draft a lot of Paris Campbell I just don't really. I don't really get it. And there are people like me who who draft Paris camp was including you and. I you know for me. It's a little bit of group think maybe I see other people that I respect who are really in Paris Campbell. I think that last year I'm sort of throwing away Jacoby perset really had a bad year. So somebody else going to have to catch passes and makes sense for the slot guy. Philip. Rivers the United Slot Guy Makes Sense for Paris. I remember how hi Dave was on Paris Campbell coming out of college. Things obviously change with Andrew retiring. So I'm giving him a reset year. You know how I feel about sophomore receivers. He's one of my last picks he's really not taking. You're not taking him before Nicole Harry Right I. Am you are okay I wouldn't in a non PBR league I would in a full ptr league and a happy are they I'm not sure I. I'm not has there been any to kill Harrah's. Yes, there was some there was a period of man. He's been bad in camp, Muhammed Snooze. Awesome and they're like right when that happens all the reports from that point forward were area a good day. You'll hear Harriet a good day and then got cut so I just think Kerry I think Harry. And Campbell are similar obviously and that they were well regarded prospects coming out last year who basically had a lost year. I prefer Harry just because I. don't see as much competition for targets. Well, that's an interesting thing. Why not? Well, I think who throws more. They're gonNA throw more right I don't know like were they. I think the Culture GonNA, win a ton of games. We've talked about what they're run. Pass rate was in games that they were ahead last year but they threw the ball lot two years ago, and that was as had a good quarterback but their defense wasn't near as good back then and Philip rivers is somewhere in the wide chasm between Andrew Luck. Percents. Yeah You can. You can take your pick as to which one you think is closer to WHO throws more I think is a good question that I don't I don't feel confident in which. Who has a better quarterback which team throws for more yards because in a normal year if you could just race last year, you would never ever pick. Cam Newton to throw for more yards than Philip rivers. That's that's totally true. I have I'm sure I have Philip rivers throwing for more yards right I have But I have Jack Doyle getting a lot more targets than I have. Any Patriots tightened. Yeah. So I don't know the the people that. The A, lot of smart people. I feel like the sports people I know Jacob gives likes Paris Campbell a lot I. think my quick Laura's well. Yeah. So I guess some sort of. Anti him but it's kind of like the a little bit like the deontay Johnson thing only was a better prospect. And later in the draft. In the in the fantasy draft All right. We're GONNA take a break here. When we come back, we'll do some fill in the blank and we had a fantasy football today draft today it's our big Li. It's our big like work office all the people involved in the video show really fantasy football today twelve team PR draft.

"Moving on to the next one here James White verse three. Cohen. Cohen. especially not with that Montgomery Torri. Cohen. Depending on the David Montgomery and I think even without that. A lot of standalone value. No matter what no matter what no matter what. I think they have the same role. I actually thought that would be a lot harder tossup between the two of you, tyree. Cohen either way get. Tony Pollard Shay Sediment Chase Edmunds Pollard fully healthy. Kenyan. Drake Pollard verse admits it's still going to be chase edmunds because Elliott doesn't break down and we haven't seen Kenyan drake with a full workload yet take an edmonds all day stop hollered get Alexander Madison Verse Latavius Murray Murray Murray Madison versus Pollard Madison Pollard Madison versus Edmonds Edmonds Madison Global Disagreement there on the on the handcuffs I like it for me. I'm looking for a handcuff where. The starter gets injured a lot. It's a different story. If you're like both of the starters are injured, which one would you rather have a for me there's such a better chance at Alvin Cook is going to get injured than Ezekiel. Elliott. So that's why I'm going Alexander. Madison over like a Pollard All de Politics stugotz value. That's why like him over Yeah Week Value I agree with both of those are a couple more todd Gurley DJ or. Their reasoning. Back. When in doubt picking back exact same thing early because he's running back. James Connor versus Kelvin Ridley when in doubt go connor all that one I'm going to go Calvin Ridley just due to injury concern. That's the last one I had for you. Guys, Nice? Never. Never disappoint Jacob. Oh thank you. I like you can tell the coin flip should get in better. Deeper into the season more research gone into these answers. Yes. They are like it. I like the little liberal discussion disagreement between the two of you. All right. Let's jump into this mock draft and see where were draft in loading, loading, loading off Mac up one. I got pick four and jake got picks sick match for the board. Hoodie got here Matt like this is the question. This one is extremely obvious. It is Christian McCaffrey Regardless Aqua your style is you take Christian McCaffrey first overall and that's what I did Mexico's Saquon Barkley. Dalvin Cook and it's on me little surprise Delvin at three tally In easy pick as well..

"Got that everybody that. Actresses Jamie Heath Ben Oh Yeah. The that great actor bedroom. All right I just drafted by twelve team PR keeper League I fell into a conundrum players can be kept for one round higher than when they were drafted but has to be rostered all season or they can't be kept. So I kept Cam Newton in the tenth but Josh Allen was sitting there in the fifteenth. So I grabbed him now I need to drop to players before week one to add a kicker and DSP do I drop cam? My other options are Tevin, Coleman Antonio, Gibson Brandin cooks, and Paris Campbell. It's the drop to. Drop Campbell before Cam. The drop the. Campbell and Cam. Okay, let's name stars. Drop them. Email from Jeff in a suburb south west of Chicago. Orland Park. Dear Scotty Dennis Michael and Steve. Some crappy team from the Lakers Lakers Knicks. I distracted a twelve team pr league from the number four spot I went Kamera Kelsey Alan Robinson Cup and Shark. Avoiding the running back dead zone blood it. I took Matt Ryan. Not GonNa love. That's true. Okay, James White was there in the seventies still only has Kamera but then I was able to grab Alexander Madison around eight Tony Pollard in round nine Benny. Snow in round eleven and Daryl Williams around thirteen I felt like I hit a home run scooping up many of the premier handcuffs. The soft tissue injuries we've been seeing in the NFL. So what do you think are they handcuff home runs or busts with no clue or do I have a bus team with? No clear running back to? Basically can you make it by with Madison Pollard Snell? And Daryl Williams I think he has. To I don't think you can't I. I've talked about this on other shows. But when you do this type of strategy, I think you'd need balance he dig it. James White I guess but you don't want just pure handcuffs young guys some standalone value as well like Zach Moses in the Boston Scott's I've talked about. That's way too early for any SNELL I love many Snell but ran the Levin you don't have to pay that price for him. Interesting like I think it's too many of the same type of backup running back because you you need the one guy that's GonNa. Probably play we don't know how successful be. Williams because Kansas City is shown that they'll use to backs But that's not a good third like that's it. That's the route. You'RE GONNA go. That's your fourth. So I would go take a look now for one of the Jaguars guys you know like Thompson. First Reich while second just to get somebody else GONNA get touches but he meant to make a trade. Dan in New Jersey just did a draft. He loves his team. And when it was over, he was offered Christian McCaffrey for his Clyde Edwards Air and Austin. Is a three wide receiver full PR. Leak. So would you rather have McCaffrey or Edwards dealer and actor? Kaffir. I think I'm taking McCaffrey. To I'M GONNA pull up my auction values curragh salary cap draft values really quick. But I I bet it's really close for me. It's really close with those two values compared to McCaffrey. That's a great way to look at it. Yeah I do have very close. To back slightly higher, but I still think I'd rather have McCaffrey plus whatever the roster spot is. That's that's the key. I was GONNA say. The key. Is Probably as a fair trade is fine. If Everett's hits and Equa does we think he's going to do that side wins, but you're getting the sure thing Ryak Yup. This is from Dean Dear Walter. Donnie Jeffrey and smokey. Those are the bowlers apparently from the big Lebowski. Pr Team Pick Two of these keepers Michael Thomas with the ninth pick. Davin Cook with the Twelfth Pick. Josh Jacobs with the twenty ninth pick and he moser one, hundred and forty ninth. What's the format he pr? Ten teams. Thomas Jacobs. Wait why would you take Davin Cook thought you like Cook Better Than Thomas I'm taking Thomas and cook one hundred percent. Times. Dave sticking with Thomas and Jacobs. All right. Then that's our show for today. Thank you. I. Hope this was helpful. I think between the last two episodes you we've done you should know who we like who we don't like on draft day we've got. Shrager what are we twitch? Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday right? Yup Tuesday Wednesday Thursday. Wednesday for four straight hours on twitch man it's going to be fun when we have Tuesday afternoon. Got T. Y. Hilton joining.

"It depends on the rest of your running back group for me like I'm usually waiting a little longer for running backs and then when I'm building out my running back group I, WanNa mix upside and started with players. I mean I don't just shoot for floor but I need a couple of guys that have some floor. And then Pollard Madison and obviously they're more pure handcuffs and the guidelines could have a role who was the other you said Latavius Yeah I have those guys all ranked within five spots of each other. Edmonds highest than Madison Pollard and then Murray. Two spots behind Pollard but all of those guys I would take. Depending on where I mad and what I've built out so far. It would just it would be Winter drafting a team you gotta consider like, what? What, what are you have covered? Do you have floor covered at this position? Do you have? Enough upside built into your Rosser Edmonds I think has tons upside and some potential standalone value. That's why he would be highest for me buckle in politics both upside guys as well. I think it's an interesting exercise to ask like if you told me, this doesn't happen but all four those starters are not playing. Who Do you rank the highest a probably Pollard, Matteis I just I saw it last year and he had two week winning games. I think Latavius, or. Any Madison actually I that's the thing is like Madison has probably the most likely back to get injured in front of him. Yeah. But Madison would probably be fourth for me. If that were to happen because I'm less certain that he would get all the targets. I think they all be really good though. Really don't top twenty running back. This is a super important discussions being super important discussions when you're taking your backups think about this question if they actually get their chance, how good would they be not just Oh, I think that guy in front of injury prone is GonNa get hurt that stuff's hard to predict how good would he be? How much are you giving yourself legitimate upset. Okay. So to recap, ESPN Davante Adams Calvin Ridley Cooper Cup, they're going to late Davante Adams Nineteenth Ridley Forty Second Cup forty fifth as wide receivers twenty and twenty. One James Connor is fifty first overall to Rico and.

"Sick. Sure and and having a depth piece. On a different team might not be so bad, either. That's your decision. Making process I mean for a you know if if a if a frontline started goes down and you have Alexander Madison. Is that going to be better for you than. You know a Devon single terry or A. In the Gordon Howard, I don't know the other aspect of when you're in the draft and your got the handcuff. The joke could be on you and you don't actually have the handcuff like that happens very frequently. There are a few guys we know for sure like Madison, Pollard and I guess like I think chase edmunds and Chase Eddie the. There are a few players that. You would say that there's a very high probability if the star in front of them is. Already. They're going GONNA. Get a huge workload, but a lot of the times we you you get real excited about a backup brought back, and then it's just three player time share, and you'd no. One's really bringing any fantasy value it. It seems like a tough gamble to take on one or two of your players needing to be handcuffed. In case they're the ones that get sick. You might be better off. You know if you're going to have to be super, Nimble, and flexible this year and trading players. You're not. There's no value to that handcuff except to you. briars value to a depth fees. If you've got Jordan Howard on your bench of someone else needs a running back. He's valuable as opposed to you trying to be the Dalvand cook owner trading Alexander Madison Away. You'RE NOT GONNA. Give value for that right. This is GonNa be insane this. Fantasy season. Yeah, I'm looking forward to it I. Think need are. Thoughtful strategy more than ever. I would love to not have to do. But I'm glad that you're side for the challenge and we're up for where we're going to be with you and we're going to be helping and we're going to be along for that. Wild ride and I can promise you one thing. I have no idea what's going to happen. Yes, none all right. Let's grab another voicemail. Hey ballers Eben, detrow, Michigan Bonjour I'd like to know if any players outside of lady on bell on the New York jets has any fantasy relevance for the twenty twenty season? Thanks, things like guys river dirty. It's river dirty through us for a loop there a couple of seasons greetings by the way because that's some Brad Pitt. We don't know he said it before. I will say this. Yes, I think. There is Chris Herndon. YEA has a chance to be relevant Jamison crowder much randall Cobb has. Added rather have crowded than GOB and I. Don't blame you. crowder was value. crowder was a name I considered for the sleeper show, but like I felt like cobb was yeah just. Much. Urged Denzel. mims has a chance to be a contributing rookie wide receiver. I'm not going to bet my house on it, I mean. Are you so the hard part for Mims is they did bring in shade. Perryman who br paramount had a little bit of a little bit of that devante Parker breakout where you've been waiting and waiting and waiting for first rounder it took. Everybody to be injured in front of him for him to get the shot, but he came through for Tampa Bay. I guess I'll just settle on Herndon and crowder yeah. There, but I the the the name is curious. Talk about is Sam. Darnold you know he's going to be a stream -able option and we've talked a lot about Daniel Jones and these other guys. Maybe they'll come through. This is his third year in the League. And he was sick last year missing games with the kissing disease. I mean sure Sam Darnold much better. Offensive Line situation should help them. What's while I'm looking through? He's not near the top of my yeah, my ranking I'm. GonNa crowder's consistency last year, and it's wild because it is, it's not all over the place. It's literally. He was either very good for your team. He was a top twenty guy, or he was in the sixties so I I think crowder is interesting craters definitely interesting because that was last year with Robbie Anderson on the team as the perceived number, one wide receiver on the team, but at least outwardly that may not have been that inside the locker room, but crowder. crowder has he has value especially R. Value. All Right Patrick be has a question for us from twitter. I see that rookie Jonathan Taylor is ranked from twenty six to twenty eight in the UK, depending on your format. With the colts offensive line I feel like he could be a top ten running back this year. What are your thoughts on Jonathan Taylor? You're not incorrect Patrick. He's certainly could be a top ten player, but not every running back. You could say that about so right pipe race, but I agree Jonathan Jonathan Taylor could be a top ten guy I think he will be a top ten guy in the future, but I'm not projecting Marlin Mac to just. Just disappear. I think he's going to be involved. Jailing Heinz will be heavily involved as well. That's three running backs to work into a rotation that makes it hard to finish in the top ten. Yeah, it's it's all about how the the workload split is between those three backs I. am currently for my ultimate draft projections believing the coach speak of Marlon Mack and Jonathan, Taylor being that one punch and I'm Heinz being a little bit involved i. Do however think that the you know it's. It's realistic to Jonathan. Taylor is another world better than MARLA. Mac and that's that's coming from someone who said Mari. High praise from you. Yeah I I think MARLA. Mac is a is a good running back in the NFL Jonathan. Taylor is a different specimen as a human, he is in that. saquon Barkley type of athlete. And so I. DO I mean if Frank Reich who I respect just comes out and goes. You know what disturbs built for a workload. Obviously did it in college. He's better on the field than our other guys. Let's get him out there more. That could happen if that happens is upside is tremendous years. Awesome I just I'm projecting to be split. Yeah, and it was late. May Frank Reich came out and said the name hines could end up with catches. You know in a game here there it will be. Less predictable now than probably at any stage in Jonathan tells career, but I think we all see outside and the opportunity. An office of line is Great. Yeah I! Don't blame people for drafting him because of that upside. There's probably too large of a gap in the Clyde Edwards Allaire Jonathan Taylor. Range of outcome situation like where. Clyde Evers layers being drafted much higher. Yeah and US dry. He leaves drafted as the starting running back. He's still going to potentially deal with some of the things that we're talking about. In Indianapolis but Damien, Williams and others so..

"Super. Bowl at the super bowl after season was over, and I I think Dave's one the question and he said I could play a full season right now, you know. Know I, mean he certainly comfortable and confident in his abilities, but as we saw offense align changing a little bit. No, they did lose Jack Hoffman the replacing with the rookie, so we'll see how that happens. We've talked about the potential regression of this offense with Ryan Tannehill that could help Henry if they're getting more plays as Ben as talked about, you know maybe get more opportunities. The thing that scares me about him also is that if he goes down and then worked his way back. He doesn't have the strength of his passing. Passing game to rely on, and if Evans is doing something in the passing game, they're changing things a little bit. Maybe he's on the field a little bit more, so that's more of a derrick. Henry bus conversation than the BARRINGTON Evans Waiver wire ad but I think both you guys said it best. You know this is a a a a guy that you have to sort of have some faith in and hold onto. We have to see if he's going to play in conjunction and he said you know you lost a bet on this. In regards to both eat, but one name that we mentioned Alexander Madison. We thought he was going to be a lottery ticket for us. He wasn't there and the Guy who replaced him was terrible, awful lot, people, Fancy Championships, and Mike, Boone or fancy playoffs, and then the other part of it is when Derrick Henry Miss Time in the playoffs. The guy that replaced him lost people's and fantasy championships playoffs as well with the Louis so it's not a guarantee that the guy that steps into a great situation is good, but I'm looking at Darlington. Evans somebody I thought he. showed up well in what I saw from him in Appalachia state. Twenty three total touchdowns last year I think he's going to be a little bit better than what the Lewis. At least that's the hope and we'll see if he takes off the field, but again we're talking both predictions. We're not talking about actually things that could happen and so I think most people rightfully, so we'll take guys like Madison Pollard. Those type of handcuffs I did another poll in regard to that and the results were as you can imagine them examines probably not close. Of, the two thousand people voted in Apple, L-, the running backs up on the list. Were Madison pollinates Dylan this get another rookie in there so madison one that one easily fifty two percent of the vote Tony Pollard, twenty two point, four percent AJ, dylan, seventeen point, eight percent, and then Danton Evans seven point eight percent. As you can tell, nobody's drafting him except for me. Let's go now to another bold prediction here and this is Calvin. Ridley will be this year's Chris, Godwin and what I mean by that is the second receiver could be better than the first receiver last year. That's what happened. God was better. Better than my Evans I. Don't Think Anybody Expects Calvin really to be better than Julio Jones, but that's why we're talking about bold prediction so right now. He's the consensus number ten wide receiver for us. I haven't ranked number ten. I think we all have ranked number. Ten was why he's at. That spot is average. Opposition is the seventeenth receiver off the board, according to fantasy football calculator, and thank you to our buddy shaggy bent drager for doing all of this research to make things easy on me, but as we saw last year from Calvin Ridley he came on wants moments new was traded to the Patriots Incidents filed six games. He didn't play in the last three games of the season, but his final six games. He averaged seventeen point one PR points per game over that stretch. He was better than Julio Jones. So if you're talking about Calvin, really wrong cited about him entering his third season heath. How excited are you when you draft Algorithm I? Love this when I'm not even GonNa tear this one apart i. I actually was on H. Q. Yesterday, doing the Geico fifteen and I was actually talking about regression from the prior week, and they said at the end. We'll give us your favorite breakout. WHO's the WHO's the One guy? It's break out and I said Calvin. Ridley might be this year's Chris Collins I absolutely love this. When I think he's, he's definitely worth of pick in the first three rounds I I. I will take him in round three in any format. You look at what he did last year he was over eighteen fantasy points per game after they traded Mohamed Sanu Average fifteen per game for the season. People just didn't notice it because he missed three games I. Absolutely think he's a future star and would not really be all that surprised if he's better than Julio this year. I definitely think you'll. You'll be better than Julio by next year. Yeah, even talking up in terms of dynasty, as well doing all of your dynasty content, and you said you could become a top five wide receiver in Dynasty so drafting of Julio Jones in that format makes a lot of sense given the age for both Julio in his early Thirties day when you compare him to some other receivers in his range. In terms of Calvin Ridley Hooper Cup Amari Cooper. I think we'll. We'll probably end up seeing our drafts Mike Evans in that range as well can golladay. How does release backup to some I would take cup ahead of them and I think I might take Golladay head of them to. Just because we, we've seen it from Golladay. The the big touchdowns, the the big play potential. We've seen it from Ridley, but not quite the same extent. We might have seen it last year if he had stayed healthy for sixteen games, but that's about it. I'll take really ahead of Mike. Evans I'll take Ridley. Head of a mark by a Mile I. The only thing that I think could slow Calvin Ridley down. There are two things number one. Todd Gurley regains his old form and all of a sudden. He's running back on fire, and the Falcons have a run game that they can really lean on. That would mean. The offensive line is better and that would take targets away from everybody in Atlanta and I. Just don't think that that's a realistic for for todd. At this point in his career, but the other thing that would concern me is what happens if Julio? Jones Mrs Time and now it's pretty clear what defenses would do if there's no Hulio on the field. They're not going to double team Russell Gauge. They're going to go after Ridley and I'm I'm not convinced yet. beating double teams, and I think a lot of where his successes come from is playing opposite Julio Jones and Julio's not there for whatever reason it's going to hurt Calvin Ridley so as long as Julio is okay and as long as the Falcons have to throw, and I think that we both agree that those are things that were counting on Kevin really is GonNa have a monster year. He definitely had the potential for it and again you know if you just look at the game. Without Zanu awesome hooper was banged up as well during part of that stretch you know he really took off, and so that's the whole they bring in hidden hurts to replace Super this offense, even if girly is running the ball better still going to be very heavy, lead the NFL and past attempts last season, so a lot to like about what this passing game could look bike with still suspect defense..
"madison pollard" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"So here's a name I would rather have if you remember from yesteryear the handcuff extraordinaire. For Ezekiel Elliott new. You go into the fair. The Scarborough Fair boasts scarborough I wanted I only want him more than Darryl. If I need a guy to play this week well yeah 'cause Derozan by well but I mean anyone he got but here's the deal for Bowe Washington. Great I'm playing in this. wiki is an excellent boss started but then Chicago Minnesota Tampa Bay Denver advert. I can't imagine you're playing Bo in those match Chicago. I think you're fine with their rush. Defense has not been good. I WOULD AGREE MINNESOTA TAMPA Bay. Does those are. Those of view are not fine with any Detroit running. You're not remotely fine. This is Bo Scarborough's first ever career game. This is the first time he's ever been active for a game. I I just don't want to walk down the Thai Johnson. Jd mckissick Bo Scarborough. Paul Perkins We got what trae Carson was was the feature he was the boast garber of the Lions. uh-huh waved running back. Paul I am aware of those. They are wrote. They might wave. Oh scarborough this week. I don't know what's going to happen. I guess the reason that I bring his name him up is because they have tried to figure out what to do with the absence of Kerryon Johnson absolutely and they have not had success. Left right or center until Hill Bo. SCARBROUGH comes in looks. Okay they give him fifteen carries it gets touchdown and now this is the Washington redskins. That's it over for Petersen or scarborough starting this week in the same match up that's that's where I would go both scarborough. It goes scarborough to if you need a spot start this week. I think he's okay now. That's just said I didn't feel comfortable. Then he detroit players in the back top of the list. You know really should be be the Indianapolis Colts running back. The problem is who is that and it's a very big problem. You have the Thursday night matchup which I guess is a plus. But we don't like him. Hines is the only safe pickup from that backfield. You'll know what his role is. You know he will catch passes. No Yeah. And he'll get some the carries but between Jonathan Williams and Jordan. Wilkins it's insane to C- Jonathan Williams be backed by the way. If you don't remember him he was the Buffalo Air to believe he was the heir apparent behind shady McCoy years ago loved him. I thought he was so town. Who's going to be great? And then he headed his way out I would I would pick up Jonathan Jonathan Williams. I would as well Gordon Wilkins miss last week injured. It's a Thursday game it's very. He thinks he'll be back. But you have to listen to what the coaching staff says about Jonathan Williams. They've been repeating themselves for a long time. And if you listen to the post game press conference you listen to the head coach. Talk about him. They're in love with Jonathan Williams. The way he runs the way finishes runs he had a monster week. This rate rushing offense. Naim hines will not give between the tackle work I don't want I know one hundred percent what you're saying Mike About Heinz. He's got a guaranteed third down role. I'd rather have Jonathan Williams the nine kinds because I don't want I want the between the Taco work. I want the hard running that we saw from Jonathan Williams last week. They're going to give him a shot. That's what I believe that. And it's tough because you have. It is what you believe where Jonathan Williams is was was added like halfway through the season there. He's before this past week. He had seen two carries for this team in week ten. And that's only because Wilkins was hurt. Me Wilkins has been there guy. So it's it's really tough situation and an advocate. Where Wilkins was the backup for for Marlin Mac for for a while? Now did he really lose that job because he was hurt in Williams had one pretty good game which was unbelievably Abeille. Plus match up as you saw Marlon was crushing. That the weather whether it's Jonathan Williams or Jordan. Wilkins you put a bid on both those guys in whichever direction e You you think is best based on what we're saying but I would be more confident my pickup would-be name Heinz. I don't want to bury the lead. He's at least a pass catching guy his his role is secure. He did get more carries in that game when Marla Mac went out so he's not going to take over the MARLA mackerel at all but I expect his role to grow and because he's the pass catching back and he's I think you know the most talented of these threes. He's a pretty good back He would be the guy that I would put the been on since you really have no clue you could put a bid in on Jonathan Williams or Jordan Wilkins and you're going to start them if you you if you're saying I need them and you put them in and either guy could just disappear. I don't think Naim hines has that ability. Yeah I guess we just disagree on that one. I I definitely go the Jonathan Williams side you guys would both go hines Gus. Edwards had the big week last week. He's just in the handcuff category but a juicy handcuff. Yeah Percents Weird Alright Darius guys Mike yesterday on the show we said we thought it would be nice to sell high on guys based on the fact that I don't blame Carey's as they were both not productive in the running game one play for various guys but it is Detroit. Detroit can't really stop running back so there is an opportunity here and it. If if you're trying to read the tea leaves at all the game started with Adrian Peterson and then Darius guys took over and was the running back so he he was just bad. They're both really bad on the ground. Sure but if you're Washington and they're going to insist on continuing with the the Dwayne Haskins experiment than it would seem you WanNa go dairies. We prioritized area skies thin over Any of the Indianapolis Backs Balaj Scarborough. Any of those guys Yeah I think it would okay. We're we're all decided. We're really all over the map on running back here. And that's it's tough. At least there are a lot of options. I mean you you know you might not like Bo scarbrough. You might loved areas guys. You might be on the exact opposite but between both scarborough Jalen. Samuel's name hines lanes Jonathan Wilkins Jordan Wilkins and Guys there are options here for people that need to play. It's just a matter of guessing the right one. Well it's match ups right. Scarborough at Washington dairies. Guys Detroit. Indianapolis you get the Thursday night you know situation against Houston and then Jalen Samuels. If he's out there has Cincinnati and should have a role regardless of whether Congress. Act Are you. Let's go to. Let's talk to our deep league peeps if James Connor is at our deeps deep yeah the deeps yeah what's up deeps if connor is out are you interested at all in trae admits it. It is such a good match week. Nine twelve for seventy three against the Colts Win James Garner was out and it was him and Samuels also the last yeah works teams out there too though. So I'm not very confident. Two weeks seven for twelve so I mean it's one of those things where yeah his name say no to the deep in his name should be brought up he could have a decent game against a really winnable matchup. If James Connor is out But he has not been great or fantasy football owners. Don't forget about Wayne Gaughman. Please please don't forget about Wayne. Goldman we don't know the health of saquon Barkley heading into the week throughout the rest of the year. Obviously dealing with injury. The team could choose to shut him down at some point. It's not what we're projecting but it is a possibility and if Wayne Gaughman is the man lost among all these other week one starts in you need to add somebody to your bench. You could end up with the starting running back for four or five weeks against you know which could matter. Yep other names that you want to bring up at the running back position. No don't forget your handcuffs Madison Pollard. Gus Edwards in company tied in Pickups Mike. I want you to weigh in here. I am all about Ryan Griffin at the tight end position. He said of several very good week over the last five playing eighty to ninety five. Percents naps no more herndon. Earning the trust of Darnold. He's zero percent owned by the numbers that we have as Oakland. Cincinnati Miami the next three weeks. Okay five for one zero nine one on five targets last week a he's. He's my favorite pickup at the position. Interesting so I like him. It's I'm trying to order the the the guys I like. Because there's like the running back position the tight ends. You could pick up for me. The highlights will be Ryan Griffin Noah Fan Jacob Hollister and Dallas Ellis Godard. Like I think all four those guys are in play. You've seen Noah Fan you've seen his his snaps in the target. Everything has elevated drastically drastically since Emmanuel. Sanders has gone eleven targets. This past week four for sixty would wish you could have gotten a little bit more. He's a great pickup but he's he's very interesting it's tough it's tough to go with Ryan Griffin as the number one out of these options. You're right three of the past. Four weeks have been been very solid. He's been the number one tied into of the last four weeks. He's also finished in the top. Fifteen four out of the last six weeks. Yeah I mean Sam Darnold Zanthoens target-setting brought up about fan. That is a very attractive amount of targets. But I just love the matchups tips. Yeah older bladed glove flow the chargers in Houston or do you WANNA play Oakland. Cincinnati Miami. Jason you are all about amber crumby the I. Hollister's probably at the top of the list for me. Because it's Russell Wilson. Yeah I mean here's thing I don't love the Philadelphia matchup as much as Ryan Brian. Griffin's upcoming schedule so I think it's very close between those two Jacob Hollister showed out the last two games and and the thing is we've seen Russell Wilson when he's got a capable tight in will dismally Used them and used them around the goal line. They would scheme to open them up for a touchdowns sounds and we brought up tyler. Lockett might be missing and I think Abercrombie could be a good pick up the rest of the way and so He's on the list. The one name that I if Jacob Hollister Jacob Hollister AK Abercrombie that's what he wears no hollister for him Between Ryan Griffin and Jacob Hollister if your name was hollister would you wear hollister. I think you are totally right. One hundred percent. Because you're wearing yourself right now. I just me Jason would be the kind of people would be like I divert that like my name's Hollister I would never be caught dead in hollister shirt. I'M GONNA go to Abercrombie so yeah like thank goodness. I wasn't named Old Navy because I just be rocking those logo shirts. Like look at me too weird. This is me to Spain's name Chaz bathing in their Cologne. All right So here's the name of idea. WanNa bring up and I want to bring it up because I feel a little skewed mm-hmm I feel a little hot and bothered and I want you to talk me down off of this is is we talking about Cleveland. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT CLEVELAND. We were talking about David Joke. Who is guy? He's not back yet. And I I know this is more of a whole because I can't imagine your planet but Miami Pittsburgh Cincinnati Arizona. These are amazing matchups. He has the best rest arrest of seasons scheduled for titans and he had just been Cleveland because he is an out there yet. But as far as a talent you're bringing up names Ryan Griffin Jacob Jacob hollister maybe Darren fells Ross dwelling. None of these guys are anywhere near the talent as a human being that David Joke who is but is it is it. Is it bad advice to say pick up. This guy who's been injured isn't back yet for the struggling browns. Because I feel like well I mean I think it might it be a little bit of an indictment on players like Dallas. Scott Noah fantasy in joke who is some other world and their aunt. I left those names out you did you did. And those would be two names names that I'd rather have than David and Joe who got it will play a ton of snaps limited wide receiver options Carson. Wentz can't get together no fan with the target. So do I think it's idiotic Dick No I don't think it's idiotic but the deeps you're talking about what has to happen. You need to get back get integrated on all the snaps snaps and then get Baker Mayfield going. So is it possible sure probable. I would be on the outside of that one Mike. Where do you win? I am on the outside outside of the probability as well. But it's not an idiotic move at at all to stash him such a strong word when I even when I says like it's an you're not an idiot but it was is your word. I know I always just say your word. Thank you guys not an idiot. Thanks I think that Jason's also secretly hoping for peanut butter dwell time once again. How good all voted will time all right? You expect back right. I don't know like this season. Yes this assist week. Maybe but let's keep it in mind. Peanut Butter Jelly time was brought on by the Arizona Cardinals. Defense and that defense alone all right other drop candidates. I'm I'm just GONNA ask him real quick. Would you drop people have to make decisions for all these names. David Johnson know.
