"Looking at the leader board on drive time sports fantasy football looks like Morocco and B. We'll take it in week five. We always have to have like it's hanging Chad type situation. We wait a week. Leadsom stacks Marinate. Perhaps somebody I know. Maybe they find an extra touchdown. I know. I don't know how it works. I'm not in charge. I just tell you to play and I play as well. But Bronco Andy, seven, leading the way in week five and overall this season so far, Denali On top, followed by waiting on the enemy. And then some dude named Ryan Kaufman so crazy all that work's joining me now is somebody that is sure to catch me. Probably in the next week. Matt Wiley. The Gazette joins me now, Matt, How are you? I'm okay. But I'm really bad about my mad about my line up from last week. It was the last thing I was going to mention in their segment was on the drive time. Um, set up that it had Ah, Chase Claypool listed as tight end. I didn't use him. I didn't intimate and I kicking myself for anytime. I feel like you were running back tight, and it's usually my gut instinct because as you've commented, I Hey, the tight end, But I didn't do it. And last sequences bloke, you know, breakout game and now he's overpriced. Probably, And I don't want to chase the points. But, man, I'm bad that I didn't do that last. S o. You played Davante Adams one week and then the next week, you or is it the same week that you didn't play Chase Claypool? No, it was Davante Adams the week before that I didn't do it on the Monday night game yet and then this one night I saw I purposely didn't do it. I want to make that clear. I went with morality Cock. But it was it was just my instinct is always gonna receiver running back tight end plan because they're better than most. I didn't do it. So chase Claypool. I was actually surprised that he's available in my league and I'm I I thought that he could be a weapon. For the Pittsburgh Steelers. But all of us would be lying if we said we saw 40 plus point game coming for him moving forward. What do you think the value of Chase Claypool will be? I mean, he he was scoring touchdowns on limited targets, and obviously now he's going to get more targets. But I just think that they have so many weapons whenever Donte Johnson healthy whenever Susan's healthy like it makes me really happy is a being's Ross Asperger owner that they have more options, but I'm not willing to spend you know, half of my f a the budget or move down on a waiver claim or anything. Tio Choir Claypool. I'd rather have one of the Eagles receivers will try to guess right there than than to go where it's just clearly loaded and Rita week you'll be chasing points for guessing wrong. We're all on Levy on watch. Thank you for the tweet that you shared with me last night, I said, but I kind of have whatever mentality to it. Like I'm not going to expect Levy on to come in and And be this dynamic weapon. I feel like he may be slightly better than Lashaun McCoy was for the chief's last year. Kind of a two parter one. If Levian does end up going to Kansas City, What do you think his impact will be? And then If he doesn't go to Kansas City. Do you think that he has a chance to be a valuable fantasy player in Kansas City or elsewhere? I suppose. Go along and remember us order. I do think he has a chance to be a valuable player. The whole Adam gave players philosophy. What Kenyon Drake did after he left Adam gave you look at what Some of the planes that have left the Jets take up. Anderson with the Panthers or other players. You seem to do well whenever raw whenever they're not playing for the Jets. Um, the one thing it looks like in the last hour. It's it's down to two teams sound either the Dolphins of the chief, if you believe the reports there are out there build one of the three this morning, but they're no longer part of that belt. It was Josh Allen over that makes, you know ecstatic because I think it's human to the bills. You know when they get down there to the two yard line that would run, But if you are a gasket over with the Dolphins, someone you probably picked up off waivers. She's someone that saw You know if the Dolphins ballot might be more of a 50 50 split, whereas if the Chiefs like you said it could be a McCoy type role, third down roll. Home, but they're also probably a little worried with really where the fuck you running back out going further into season. Whether or not Belle wants to take less money trying to win a championship or take more money and go the Dolphins abilities, But I don't think it will be. Valuable, I said, but you can't I broke my roster. My spots on. I'm going to take a gamble on my cam, makers of the ranch that I would leave belt, at least at this stage. But it but it's the other player is going to impact like a gasket that fears them causes me feel. Matt Wiley, The Gazette joining me here on drive time sports Feel free to lob any of your fantasy football conundrums our way 5 to 29872. I'll be sure to share them with Matt. The biggest news out.

"If you are so inclined heavy on the NFL today, I gotta do what every other talk show host on this radio station has done today. And that is give my NFL predictions. Last year I picked the Chiefs and the Cowboys in the Super Bowl. This year. I'm doubling down on one of those two teams. I'll let you guess who God, all aspects of week one covered for you going to chat with Dylan Scott of K O A. In the next segment. Of course, that's where you will be watching Chiefs in Texans. On Channel five, so he'll join me to discuss some important Broncos information. Bottom of the hour. Matt Wiley will rejoin US talk a little fantasy. Get your lineup set for the weekend and then an hour number two. Brandon Lang. Who was once played by Matthew McConaughey in a movie. He will join me to discuss the betting aspect of week one. So, Yeah, We got a lot of NFL plus Broncos stuff. Ah, couple of injured players making their way back slowly and then another. Is added to the list, so we'll get to that as well. 5 to 2987 to that is the tax line. And it was sure nice of the embassies in to basically come to an end last night. Just in time for football to start. Can't handle all of it. So it's nice that the MBA, for all intents and purposes is kind of stepped away and certainly by the time The Broncos play. There's a decent chance that the Denver Nuggets will be done. Although I do give them a puncher's chance to win tomorrow. To force a game six. But they're basically done. Um you know, I was I was doing some research for the show, as I tend to do from time to time. Are you aware? Of the reason why Michael Malone was fired in Sacramento. Yes, it was partially because that organization is a complete dumpster fire. But the basketball reason That Michael Malone was fired. Is because of his insistence on turning the Sacramento Kings into a defense first team. That relied on getting offense from that defense in the form of transition. Baskets. P. Della Sandro, who's the GM at the time used to be the right hand man of my sayyou Jiri here in Colorado, along with the ownership wanted a more offensive minded team with the young talent they had led by DeMarcus cousins and exceptionally gifted offensive center is all of this sounding familiar to you. Now. Tim Connelly and Josh Krockey hired Michael Malone because of what he was trying to do in Sacramento. They had fire George Karl because they felt like his style of play would never get them a championship. And then the Brian Shy era came and went. Melvin Hon pinch hit for a little bit. And then Ah! On to Michael Malone. So I don't believe that The Denver Nuggets are right at this point keen on letting Michael Malone go, but The frustration with Michael Malone outside of the organization, Frustration from you the frustration for me Is because Michael Malone is being Michael Malone. Can we be mad at that? I mean, we will be What should we be? We knew what type of coach Mike Um along Wass. We knew what he brought to the table. We knew what his vision was, and we signed off on it. Because we had spent many years getting bounced in the first round because the Nuggets couldn't play any defense in the one year they did. They went to the Western Conference finals. So we saw where even a team that plays at altitude should be able to play defense. But How can it be? That the Nuggets can hold the Clippers under 100 points. With two of the better players in the MBA, one of The absolute best players in the MBA and Kwai Leonard, who they held once again under 30 points. About the only bed I hit last night. And then they also have Paul George in a crazy, deep team. Loaded with talent. They still hold them under 100 points, but yet end up never really, truly being in that game. The score got close. But you just never felt like from the first couple minutes that the Nuggets we're gonna win that game. So where was the defense leading to offense? Michael Malone Cut three, please. Making shops and taking care of it. We shot 39 from the field and 33 from the three point line. And 17 turnovers. I think a lot of those were in the first quarter. Seven of those in the first quarter. I believe Katie and then five more in the fourth quarter. The defense was at least gave us there was a chance. To be in the game. 96 points for them 41 from the field. 20 from three will live with those numbers, but, um We have to be humble up better on offense. I have to help our guy's Mohr. They're just dogging and hounding Jamal Murray everywhere and it's It's been really hard to get him open for party looks. And You're making the right places getting off of it. Seven assists minus this last game. Um, but It's just we need him. He averaged 32 points a game in the first round on Give them credit. They're sending Patrick Beverley copilot Paul George. They're double teaming him, so he's got to make the right play when he has to on him. But I have to get him easier Looks and tonight we worked so hard for everything we tried to get and obviously was struggling to make shots right now. And Michael Malone is right about Jamal Murray. Jamal Murray has hit a ceiling or a wall. I don't want to say it's ceiling..

"Ryan and wheels with you in studio. Matt Wiley will join us here in just a little bit to dispense fantasy football knowledge. I am debating whether I should give a you know, what that I am playing for third place in my league. This saints new horizontal passing game? Just totally wrecked. My season, really. Yeah. So I lost to one of our newcomers in the leagues. And now I'm going for third, and I don't know if there's a cash prize and out of principle. I may play five guys that are all injured just to send a message of how much I don't care. But I say that I'm the kind of guy that says that and then at the last minute I'll like make a couple of waiver pickups and I'll try to do. And I'll try to try to win and go I just decided at the last minute. I was totally going to do it. But then I decided that I wanted to try and win. So Matt Wiley will help you and I out with that coming up in just a little bit crunch time at the bottom of the hour. Billy, crystal adding sports commentator to his resume. Yeah. Tune in to find out by the way. Very nice that Jeffrey sent a video of his daughter's daughter and her friends, I'm not sure. Carpool. Jeffrey could be the. The normal guy equivalent Philip rivers. I don't know. Easy there. I don't know. I I, you know, maybe not very nice after I used just horrific language that. My mother told me not to use growing up that they sent us a video saying that they forgive me. So. Now. Now, I now, I'm okay. So Jeffrey says six kids three daughters, boom. Wow. All right. Kudos to you, man. Yeah. I got two boys. And I'm I'm thinking about putting one of them up. For sale. Wow. I don't know keep an eye on Craigslist people, right? And it'll be it'll be the one who acts up next at school, right? Next time, you get a phone call from the school right Craigslist. Jeffrey said that they'll take them. So. I kid. I love my boys more than anything in their awesome. You know, why they're awesome. Because they're just a couple of little me's. And the only thing I love more than my kids is myself. So when my kids are like me that makes them better. I'd say so but please don't Jeffrey and his daughters are listening. So it's Christmas two eight six zero zero four six if you want to get on the conversation doesn't have to be about. Your offspring. Hours or mine or your. The adventure. The guy who is angry about me talking about my coffee adventures is probably losing his mind right now. We are talking sports. In fact, we will talk Broncos. In fact, I won't talk Broncos. I'll let von Miller do it. So we talked about a few weeks ago that the Broncos led by von Miller made a sizable donation to shield six one six which is a nonprofit that originally originated excuse me here in Colorado Springs. It and there's still blows my mind that this is not a real that. This is the thing and that shield six one six has to help with this. Funds press conference. He talked about how the same thing. This is a necessary even necessary. Right. So excuse me for it's gonna be a little redundant with me saying in, but you may have a different take than but. The fact that our first responders don't have the absolute top of the line protection. In a quick man is stunning. I don't know if we need, you know, and that a nonprofit has to do that like I just thought that I pay enough taxes, but it doesn't go. The fact of the matter is it doesn't go far enough and to think that especially with what happened the other day at the citadel just the fact that our first responders don't necessarily have the absolute best equipment in protection is just it's staggering to me. But what it makes what shield six one six does amazing one of the more every nonprofit does great work, but this is kind of one of those like super necessary like we really need to help out our first responders shield six one six does that in von Miller. And the Broncos made a sizable donation to shield six one six and they had a bunch of first responders up at valley today. I believe the Colorado Springs fire department was up there. I thought I read grant Mitch is tweet. I'll look at that. While you listen to von Miller again talk about why was so important for him to donate to shield six one six..

"I say normal season-long leagues you're trying to either make a push for the playoffs are trying to cement your place at top your division. And for that, you need all the help you can get I know I'm in the same boat. And that's why we welcome onto the program. Matt Wiley the fantasy football guru for the gazette. Matt how are you doing? Great. There's no more by weeks and fantasy. Pretty much lineup. Long league. There's a few hail Mary throw a lot of games to be played. But I'm glad to buy. Did Thursday change your processes for as when you get your lineups locked in or you on any given week. If there was a Thursday morning game. You would already have your team locked in the last minute on the long ones. I try to wait to check the injury reports. Check, the weather check all that. But for the for the weekly ones up in doing the lock on Thursday. And they're just hoping no one gets into there. There was one week at someone in my lineup. I can't remember I think with aged green. And then he was out. So I had switch at the last minute. And but normally I have a good and then to prepare for for. Talking on the show to prepare and be ready for Thursday. I hate thanksgiving. I really do. It is ruined my life. Thankfully, I have such a lead in my league that one bad week of leaving Baker Mayfield on the bench. Did not hurt me so much. I'm curious you brought up AJ green. Usually pretty good play. Would you would you say that any of the Bengals receivers to not expect big things out of them on Sunday? Yeah. With the injury that adult I think there are often going into what the ravens office offense has become I think they're gonna run run run. And then runs more mix them still a solid play. But I I don't think he's gonna get a green or. Eight or any of series are going to get the targets that they normally have just on sheer volume. You know in the goal line run a play. But I I just don't trust the Bengals passing game anymore. You mentioned ravens just segues all over the place is Alex Collins not playing on Sunday. The last I thought he was still questionable, but they tried to work time and Gumri in last week. If I thought flacco, it's still probably not going to play. So there's really no reason to play Collins with it's working now. So I have on the teams I have Collins. Let's see oh before we get into our listeners fantasy football questions. Who's the who's the sneaky good play for you this week where what match do you like a lot? Well, there's been there's been a couple of like I think Stafford sticking quarterback play and they were talking. In the picking new lineup each week. I tried to write down a bunch of plays position this week. But Stafford at quarterback is the one that I'm looking at their playing the ram down a lot. One that I saw one job for the Browns running back. He's averaging twenty three point three Kerry week nine twenty twenty three point three carries per game. He was tied with four net for the ball. Carey. So basically what I try to do every week. There's a big five. Did I try to get to the big five in my lineup each week and those guys curly. Gordon, McCaffrey hunt Arkley and now with Gordon not that mix anymore. I really have to fan. My horizons look at different running back. But at least that's how I put your life. Oh. I don't know. I mean, I have all these saints. So I just kinda got a role. I got to roll with the saints on that. And as far as the the drive time sports fantasy football stuff goes. I think I went. Oh, who did I go? I think I did went with like rivers quarterback. So. Jeffrey, just text in and said that I do dartboard. I do not do dartboard. That's not how I how I do my lineup I-. I chase a lot though. Matt, admittedly, I chase a lot. I see who did well the week before. And I'm like I want to jump on there. And I know that's a bad way of going about it. But I just can't help myself. This week. There were a lot of guys in the Dr Penn lineup. Their price seemed to just jump off the page like Arizona's that Green Bay Patrick Peterson probably gonna shout out about the atoms. Snow in the forecast. That the titans spotted so weak Jimmy Graham, I believe like around five thousand I was like, whoa. This is an automatic. I'm going to have to think about Jimmy Graham. And then there was the other guys. Shop was one of them. Humphries the receiver with Tampa Bay. Seattle. There were just so many guys. Made me think okay. I could actually afford to use them a home this week with two those star running back and then had it down with other skilled player. But then when it came through it, I didn't use my home tonight. Just loaded up on the John Hopkins. The guys who I think are going to. Perform what they're used to perform. I here's a pro tip for our drive time. Sports fantasy football players Matt Lacoste cost less than Jeff Hier men. And that is one of the knee corks of the game that we play is that sometimes that happens, but pro tip if you wanna go see, I always go cheap with the tight ends low cost is cheaper than Jeff Hier men. So maybe that's a way to save some money as well in your lineup. Yeah. Do you think that low cost do you think will cost steps in? And is that for the Broncos moving forward, or do you think they go elsewhere with higher men out? I still think you're going to try to force it to the to Sutton, and maybe even get some of the running backs in the passing game more ball. I'm not going to pick up the cost. Right. All right now to your questions and two eight six zero four six Jeffrey, despite his insulting words, I will read his question to you, ma'am. I have Tom Brady and Matthew Stafford but could pick up Jamie's or Trubisky off the waiver wire. What do you suggest is the best long term decision? I would have to look at the schedule and look at the week fifteen and sixteen matchup. Patriots have that history of not resting guys for biscuit been banged up. Or maybe the bears, right? It out as long as their division keeps losing and keep him on the bench. So I would be a little hesitant on Trubisky. Winston can throw five Picton we get benched. But I I really liked. Garbage stats. Did he gets for fantasy? So I would definitely try to. If you try to pick them all up to your opponent. Like if you have a backup tight end or a backup kicker backup with no more five no reason to roster any of those positions. So pick up everyone. Just don't let your opponents. Get them. Right. I'm are you surprised that Jeffery has has a league? Where Trubisky has been dropped. I am. I am. I wonder if there's a transaction limit or if because he was injured last week likely not gonna play this week if someone just panicked or. Yes. By surprising to me. Erin asks has two questions for you. I wind Brady dealing with an injury against the Vikings or Lamar Jackson getting the start against Atlanta. Eighty of the two. Rushing yards. Rushing touchdowns are so much higher. Like if you're in a week were down passes only counter three or something. Then maybe go Jackson, but I still go Brady in that game. Could there could be lots of points on the board there? Second question from Aaron is Marlin MAC ready to start this week. Or is he still in concussion protocol? Concussion protocol. That may be. Maybe a little hesitant because I have a team, but the the one player in that league or in that game to keep an eye on with four naked spend it again, they brought him Carlos a couple of weeks ago. Probably dropped him mostly might be available on on waiver wires out there on the wire you might be got to pick up and then monitor closer the Sunday in the role. If you have questions for Matt Wiley, you can get them in at two eight six zero zero four six. Jarvis landry. Larry FitzGerald trae Kwan Smith pick too. I don't treat the help. They play the tonight. So I really monitor that. But the thing about Landry is ever since as the which is coronary not getting the tarkenton used to. They're they're spreading the ball around a lot more. So I'm here to be honest with you of Landry and his production. I picked him up in a lot of league. Have they made the switch so with the other two? But if it doesn't play, obviously. Question. Everyone as far as the saints are concerned. Every I know they don't allow us to get Thursday players on our daily fantasy. But I'm sure on draft kings and stuff you can would you load up on on guys in tonight's game. I mean, you have Zeke you have Kamara Ingram. Yeah. Breeze. Seems like it's going to be a pretty fun fantasy football match up tonight. Yeah. I think so balanced freeze for sure would be taken that Cooper. Now, surprisingly wide receiver one Elliott. I would all with at home. The three guys. I would freeze Elliott and Cooper would be three. I try to target. Fan, but but those four players, but I wouldn't Kamara I have benching. I don't know what they're doing what they're running game. Mike Williams or Jarvis Landry. William. With the chargers are an interesting dynamic because some people rushed to pick up when Melvin Gorka her. But Justin Jackson the guy who had seven carries over fifty yards. He's another one who might be available in your leak pick up in two weeks from now he could lead you to a championship. You can follow me on Twitter at M W.

"Of steps in the last two games. Baiting targeted for green. I'll keep them. I'll keep him on the squad. And then I'll be like normal. I'll be a week behind he'll blow up this week. And then next week. I'll play him. Here's a question. And I'll let you go on this from Lawrence. I'm fighting for last place. So I guess things haven't been going. Well for him Russell Wilson or Alex Smith. You gotta go with Russell Wilson. You can't I never wanna put an Alex Smith on purpose. Like unless there's two by weeks. And if I don't have another option, I just he's going to win games. But he's not gonna win a shoot out. It's gonna be seventeen fourteen type game. But I go Russell Wilson. Well, Andy Reid doesn't put in Alex Smith either unless he has to. I appreciate the time in the inside. And I'm looking at the boy, what is it Muller? Muller was the kid's name that's gonna start for the Niners, Nick Mullins, Nick. Nick molins. We have to the same college Brett farve. Apparently if you can get Oakland or San Francisco defense or jets are dolphins defense way to go this week if any of those four available actually grapple why? The dolphins are actually the cheapest defense and drive time sports fantasy football is like, are you kidding me? So I grabbed them I mean, I usually look at the bottom of the list for defenses. But I this week. I feel pretty good about it. Appreciate the time in good luck this weekend. Good luck to you. Thanks, Matt Wiley gazette joining us here on drive time sports, you could give them a follow on Twitter at M W Coyote coming up next. It's crunch time here on Xtra sports.

"Home hooters inside the citadel ball raiders and at Niners a bay area clash on tap for tonight. This will be a great place to watch it. It's actually a very busy evening in terms of sports. You got the football game, certainly, but then both the nuggets and the avalanche are in action tonight. And you'll be able to actually, you know, kinda watch almost all of it in its entirety because the nuggets will tip off shortly after five o'clock and the the ads are in Calgary. Which is we have learned on this show is straight due north of here. And I believe that's a late. Puck drop there certainly after a at least seven o'clock there. So you got a chance for football. You got basketball. You got hockey all rolled into one. So you're going to need multiple TV TV's, thankfully. Hooters has those. And they also have great drink and wing specials. I tried. So last week. I tried the bacon wrapped wings and they were phenomenal. So just a little pro tip. If you come in to watch anything tonight that bacon wrapped wings. That's where you wanna go. Also, I have brought some goodies with me including but not limited to Colorado, college hockey tickets. They are taking on Saint Cloud this Friday and Saturday, and I have tickets for both games that I would be more than happy to send along with you. If you come by and see me while I am here, and I will be here until six o'clock because we have the football on the radio here tonight. I guess wise were fairly light on the old gas. I do have Matt Wiley gazette who joins us every Thursday to talk fantasy football. He will join us at four twenty. But other than that, we're pretty wide open. I'm working on a few things. But for now, the Matt Wylie's who we got we're happy to have him and your fantasy football questions will be answered over the course of the program. But because Matt is the.

"So I I try to, you know, keep a standard of this league. I'm trying to win this league. I'm also trying to win this league. I'm trying to win, you know. No, I don't mix league. I have you ever done. It. No. But I'm thinking about it. No, well, no one plays. Both with me. I get a lot of people that play I play fantasy for the most part. I play fantasy basketball kind of by myself. My peer group is in big into fantasy basketball. I played football with all of them. But not basketball.

He he had like seven carries almost sixty yards last week and the week before he did. Well, he's been the most productive forty Niner behind Braida offer more doesn't have anymore.

"Before we get some fantasy football chatter in with Matt Wiley of the gazette this just in from Adrian Adrian, Warburton hausky the rockets have reopened their pursuit of Jimmy Butler and get this. The rockets are willing to offer four first round picks as part of the deal for Jimmy Butler. I'm. Mm. To me that feels a little bit like a panic move. I don't know maybe a one in three one in four start has got people ANSI they're down in h town. But whoa, JR. Says rockets going after Jimmy Butler again and part of their deal includes four first round picks one guy that would never pay for first round picks for Jimmy Butler is the fantasy football guru for the Matt Wiley, Matt how are you on this Thursday afternoon, I'm doing well? And I'm in fantasy basketball. I'm facing the team that has James harden and he hurt his hamstring. So now, this makes me think maybe the hamstring injuries. A little worse than first reported not to sound like a jerk that makes me feel a little better about my chances this week. Well, it's a hamstring. And we deal with this all the time and fantasy sports right? Because because we're like. We don't want the guy to play against us. But we don't wish bodily harm. I feel like a hamstring injury is a is a happy medium. Yeah. Well, yeah. No can linger for a long time. You sit out two weeks in NFL season. So two weeks of NBA game. So I'm okay with it. Yeah. I have I have Jimmy Butler on my team. So I'm I'm curious on how that would affect my team if Jimmy Butler goes to the rockets, but that's all that's all. We'll we'll see how it goes. I don't know how I don't know how mad and you're a basketball guy. I don't know how the wolves turned that down. How do you turn that down four weeks? It's stunning to because they're they're getting blasted on Twitter, and on NBA radio everything with you know, they gave up Levin already in the way he scored thirty points in every game. And the bulls actually moved up to get market in for that trait. So Minnesota really looks bad where you're going to clear winner the trade. So yeah, I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if that's done today if it's legit. I four first rounders on the table surprised. It's not done already. Well, let's let's talk fantasy football. That's why you're here. Dolphins texans. I'm guessing I if you can find Brock Osweiler in the next three hours. You want him? Right. Brock Osweiler play play play. No, no, no. Takim grant is the receiver from the dolphin. So I'll be watching the they lost Albert often. But part of me wonders if they're going to try to showcase devante Parker to try to trade him before the trade deadline. So I wouldn't I picked up grant. But I'm not gonna play him this week even against the Texans. I won't do it. And I thought that that the dolphins have given up the most passes over twenty yards in the last four weeks so will fuller and some of the big play and guys could have a big night. But no Brock Osweiler. No way. Okay, fine. How 'bout Sunday's game? Obviously, we I've talked quite a bit about the chiefs in the Broncos from a from a reality football standpoint, fantasy wise I who do you like in that game based on what you saw when they played in Denver..

"You wanna get a up close and personal view of Brock Osweiler in all his glory. This will be the place to do that. Also, the nuggets with a fairly interesting contests that will talk about in a little bit. They just so happy to be paying playing LeBron and the Los Angeles Lakers that is the late game tonight on TNT Celtics thunder is the early game. So couple of interesting basketball contests on the television tonight. And if there's any other sporting events going on that I am not mentioning they will be on the TV's here at hooters inside, the citadel mall, and as always they will have fantastic. Wing and drink specials for you. While you are here while I am here. I have some goodies to give away. I have tickets for air force hockey. If you want to go tonight, I still have a few for tonight's game. And then I have a whole bunch four tomorrow. So if you'd like to go check out air force hockey either tonight or tomorrow, I have your hookup. I also have tickets for the professional bull riders velocity tour, which is coming up this Friday at the Broadmoor world arena, and then also gun in ninth show to get. So if that is your fancy you hook up there, so come by say, hi, sit down have a drink and. Get a pair of tickets to something from me because chances are I will have a pair of tickets to something for you. I also have a pack guest list for you today. Coming up in about fourteen minutes. We'll be joined by the radio voice of the Colorado Avalanche. Connor mcgahee a loss last night for the avalanche. But it was a fun game going toe to toe with one of the best in the NHL in the Tampa Bay Lightning. Of course, they're coming off of that great road trip. And then Matt Shane is visiting Denver for the first time as a Senator coming up tomorrow. So the lot going on in the avalanche universe, and we'll cover it all with Connor here in the next segment. Our number two because this is a Thursday you need to get your fantasy lineups. Right. And Matt Wiley of the gazette is going to be here to do exactly that. And then got a couple of guests in our number three. As I mentioned the air force hockey team is playing tonight and tomorrow against Niagara. No Friday, Saturday series because of air force football. Dave Toler will join us to preview tonight's game against Niagara. And then I if he does well, I have told them that he can come back tomorrow to recap tonight's game into preview Friday. So Dave Toler will join us coming up in a couple of hours from now five twenty and then at five thirty five Marqaba alone. Will join me to talk about the NFL. Of course, he'll give a national perspective on what is going on with the Denver Broncos right now. So we look forward to that conversation at five thirty. In the meantime, if you want to be a part of the show the best way to do it other than coming out and seeing me at hooters which used to totally do is throw me a text at two eight six. Six zero zero four six that's also where your fantasy football question for Matt Wiley can go or you can find me on Twitter at gingerly tweets. We want to start today with those same Denver Broncos and look. Chad Kelly has been cut Kevin HOGAN is now the backup we discussed all this yesterday. Vance Joseph addressed it. And now finally on a Thursday, we can turn our attention to the Kansas City Chiefs, right? Chris Harris junior already focused on the cheese. Chiefs Friday since then game was over with a man, I've already if you if you study all weekend and get a jump on these boys in anytime to win. So I've been studying before us on them the whole time. So this is a big game. This is a game this season changing game. And if you ain't focus on that. All this other bullcrap was going on. I mean, you you missing the big point in his game. This is a big game change our season and get us back rolling. And Chris Harrison's assertion. There is absolutely correct. This is a complete season changing game on Sunday. Because for a couple reasons. Let's go best case scenario. Let's say they go into Arrowhead. Let's say they beat the Vegas favorite for the MVP right now in Patrick Mahomes. Let's say they get that done two days before the NFL trade deadline. Everything changes. All of a sudden, you're not even thinking about firing Vance Joseph during the season. You're not thinking about trading to Marius Thomas or Chris Harris or anybody else on that roster. All of a sudden, you're saying, well, wait a minute. Have the Broncos figured this thing out did the did Chad Kelly's biggest contribution to this team. Could it be to galvanize them to go out and make everything around this team about football? That is certainly the outcome. If they are to win on Sunday. Now the other side of that in terms of season changing, I think that Chris Harris is correct while he wasn't referring to if they lose many people are preparing for the Broncos to lose on Sunday. And then what does Monday look like what is Tuesday? Look like, Mark his love the devil post wrote that this is a team that needs to stop fooling itself and it needs to go into full-scale rebuild mode. Anyone that they can find a taker four by Tuesday's trade deadline that doesn't wear number fifty eight and I don't think he makes that assertion. But I'm just making it anybody. That's not von Miller, not Chris Harris junior. If you could find a taker and the price is right, you unload them because since the Super Bowl this team has been fooling itself into thinking that they are a contender. And they have shown nothing of the sort. This season. So if the Broncos go into Arrowhead and they get beaten soundly by the Vegas favorite for the MVP, Patrick Mahomes. Then what does Monday and Tuesday, look like for the Broncos then? And then what does the bye week look like? With Vance Joseph and the next opportunity for John Elway to potentially fire him. Speaking of odds. Vegas has done something that they have never done in the history of the chiefs and Broncos long illustrious rivalry. They have made the Kansas City Chiefs double digit favorites that has never happened in the history of this rivalry that the Kansas City. Chiefs are ten point favorites. Now, I'm sure that the Broncos have been double digit favorites against Kansas City, but never the other way around so Vegas. Not not only is Vegas usually pretty stingy when it comes to double digit spreads. That's dangerous for them. They have never done that in a chief and Broncos game given that much love or that much dismissal. If you will to one team or another, but that's what they have done. So Chris harasses assertion that this is a season changing game. It absolutely could be a win keep the band together. Can the Broncos continue rolling? They have the Texans. They have the Browns. They have the raiders they have teams coming up on their schedule that if they beat Kansas City, all of a sudden, you're like, well, of course, they beat these other teams. Vance Joseph may save his job. When we talked about the win against Arizona. That was only save it for a week. That is not save it period. Is a win in Arrowhead saving his job period. It could be but the scenario that most people believe including myself is that the Broncos don't try and fund Sunday. Then what does that look like how active are the Broncos at the trade deadline is Vance Joseph once again on notice that if he loses against the Texans the following Sunday that he may be unemployed. So I completely agree with Chris Harris assess assessment that this is the season changing game which way will go. I welcome your thoughts. Two eight six zero zero four six of course, Mark Malone will join us in our number three to give his perspective on how things go down on Sunday. Coming up next. We'll shift over to the Avs. Disappointing somewhat the loss last night to Tampa Bay one nothing, but things overall going very well for Jared Bednarz team that radio voice of the avalanche. Connor gay? He joins us to talk all Avs coming up after we take a look at how your afternoon commute is shaping up. Here's.

"Shot helmet-to-helmet Antonio Brown. So he's always very emotional. You could get thrown out of the game or he could go for three touchdowns. But that's. You. We always say rivalry hate each other. I'm confident saying Antonio Brown hates the Cincinnati Bengals. So you're right. I mean, you're not gonna. There's no receiver that you're gonna plug in. And you're never going to pitch a Brown, but it's not going to be a seven seven receptions for seventy yards type game. It's going to be a hundred and fifty yards or you're gonna get thrown out that fourteen yard. Matt wildly gazette. Joining us a couple more questions for you mad before we let you go. Russell wilson.

I think that that game's not going to be as high scoring at some do because I think the raiders are gonna force the ball Hugh, Lynch's nine a revenge game type atmosphere. So I don't see the tons of passing yards in that one that a lot of others. Do I think with what you have? Yeah. The ball at the one yard line of getting didn't get the ball the week before they play Seahawks came could be very low scoring dominate the ball. So I don't expect big numbers from Wilson.

"Yeah. That's it. That's about weekly winner homerun. Hopefully, the Rockefeller we'll cargo just hit a triple. So there's there's something, but the bad news is Ian Desmond's up and he hasn't had a competitive at bat since July. I'll sneak in one more question to you Matt before I let you go pick two of four. I love these questions pick two of four cooks digs Davante Adams or Calvin. Ridley. Mostly really is the highest scoring fever. So it's really hard to bench him right now. He's in the zone and cooks has been. He was great on TV. But he hasn't been as consistent. So if Adams played which is on the injury report. So. That's a long way around on this. Ridley cooks Ridley. Relent cook. And then another sneaky play I'm going to throw this one back in Alex Smith the Redskins at saying. I don't think anybody has him highly rated, but that game could be a shootout. The the saints defense has been awful, Alex Smith is another sneaky place, so Alex Smith a quarterback Aaron Jones running back and and Corey Davis at receiver or my sneaky. But the question is who does Alex Smith throw to in that shootout? Tight end back. These three receivers from the Redskins. I have on my Rosser is gonna be the death of me. Appreciate your time and insight as always and we'll talk next week. All right. Good luck. It's almost fantasy basketball. Enjoy it. That's right. Matt Wiley gazette joining us here on drive time sports. I actually pulled off a really big trade in my fancy basketball. League. I ended up trading. Gary Harrison Hassan Whiteside for. Aaron gordon. And buddy healed and Derek Whyte betting on the UCS kid. More playing time for him with Tony Parker out. Cargo hits a triple. Ian, Desmond ruins everyone's life. That is the summation of what just happened in the Rockies and brewers game. So still Rockies down to nothing coming up next. Yes. Some NHL teams played last night. But not the Blackhawks and not the avalanche. So guess what tonight is the first real night of NHL hockey so wheels, and I will do our third. Second annual drive time sports crunch time.

Joining us now is the reigning undisputed defending champion of the media group on drive time sports fancy football. Matt Wiley gazette joins us now. Matt how are you? I'm doing great. I had a big week in my individual season-long leaks last week. So I'm in a better mood than I was after week one. How are you? Not not too bad. I've been banging my head against the wall trying to pry saquon Barkley away from one of the teams in my league. And it's not going. Well, he keeps asking me for Alvin Kamara and I keep telling him to go to hell. So it's it's been a long week. And it's only Thursday. Yeah. Well, I mean trying to do a two for one while I'm with numbers, maybe give a receiver and running back to you know, you can always a one one guy. Yeah. That's why I tried to do. I said I will give you Alex Collins and Jarvis Landry for saquon Barkley is that and be honest with me now, I can take it is that not a fair trade. Yeah. No. That that offers ridiculous. I wouldn't do it. The point per catch league point per catch leak might make it a little different. No, actually that offers ridiculous. All the way around. I wouldn't do it. All right, fine. Whatever. Now, I know why he won't take my trade. Two eight six zero zero four six get your fantasy football conundrums in to Matt Wiley. I do want to ask because my entire life revolves around the Kansas City Chiefs. So I have I have a couple of questions when it comes to them. The first part is for those of us playing drive time sports fantasy football Patrick Mahomes is the most expensive quarterback. I believe that the other daily fantasy people have Patrick Mahomes is probably the most expensive as well. Is he worth every penny right now in your opinion in daily fantasy league. I do not think he is. Because I think you can find quarterbacks in that middle tier that can produce almost the same level. If you look at last week, I think DeShaun Watson at three hundred ten yards passing in two touchdowns. And he was the ten quarterback. Like he came in at ten. The league is all about passing. So don't get overwhelmed. The if you're expecting, you know, six touchdowns a week. You never wanna. To play catch-up. You always wanna look ahead. So I think Mahomes is a little overpriced right now. And and you know, the last three weeks on the show I'm all in on the chiefs, and I have been all season. But Mahomes is prices eclipse where I want to pay for him in daily. Are you at all worried or should owners of cream hunt? Be worried about Andy Reed's like it see as a cheese fan. It seems to me like Andy Reid is trying to either show off his brand new toy or he's trying to justify getting rid of Alex Smith. Will this continue to come at the expense of cream hunts? Touches I don't think so I think that game plans have kind of dictated it when they jumped out to that twenty one point lead last week, if Steelers' wouldn't rallied I think we've seen a lot of Kareem hunt and the one thing and it's weird that it's the Texans but the Texans and the chiefs or two teams to target because you know, it's week three. But we kind of forget both of those teams are playing their home opener this weekend. So obviously, they want to they want to see the I I think they're going to spread the wealth around for both of those teams. I think the running backs Lamar Miller and cream on triple be viable options. Because they've all their games have been on the road. So far. Matt Wiley the gazette shedding fan shedding some light on your fantasy football conundrums at two eight six zero zero four six just for people who are trying to get their lineups. Locked in for tonight. Is there anybody in this game? I know you're not a huge fan of Thursday night football and and its impact on fantasy. Is there anybody that you would you would say they might be a solid play tonight. There might be the well play just because he's a former Brown usually when teams do that free agent comes over and makes a big splash to give him the big deal. Stick it down near the goal line. They're going to reward him against his old team. He might be a player to play. The jets defense has been turning the ball over like crazy. But last week was kind of a reminder to me is like, oh, man. These Thursday night games are awful. And the the home team's usually role Thursday night games. Why would I would really be worried about Jarvis Landry not playing to he's been questionable week short? We could practice. He's one. I would be worried if I had to Jarvis Landry. But probably don't have a better option. So you have to throw them out there. I can play Corey Clement. And in fact, I did. So I I'm good. So I'm all I'm all buttoned up there. Degree degree the one player on the weekend. I would watch going to sound ridiculous, but David Johnson. And if you don't own David Johnson and they're playing the bears. You want him to stink this week? Because people who have David job, I'm not gonna panic next week. So if he has another bad game put in your trade offer before someone else does by by Sunday night, having a trade offer for David Johnson. Because owners that took him as a top five ticker gonna be so sick of him. He might be a player that you can can wrestle away from an older. And at some point they're going to have to make a quarterback change and throw the ball down the field past six yard. They only crossed midfield on the final drive last week. It was just a pathetic showing. All right. Getting to some of your fantasy football questions. Call was worried that he missed his question because he was pumping gas. And I said, don't worry Karl. I'm asking him right now. I he has Cam Matt Ryan any just picked up Ryan Fitzpatrick he can play to who. Should he play? I like Matt Ryan this week if you look at his career split he is best ratio for touchdowns interception against the saints thirty two touchdowns and twelve interceptions. So I really like the saints falcons. I think that that could be a shootout. And I also like Cam. I know. The bucks are on Monday night. Football eight waiting till Monday night. I mean to have those three quarterbacks one that's a great problem to have. But I like Cam and I like Matt Ryan. I'm curious with the situation with the buccaneers, obviously, the the reality football question is whether Janus Winston should get his job back when he comes back. My question is let's say he does get his job back. Do you think that what we're seeing from Ryan Fitzpatrick is a product of Dirk cutters offense. Do you think Janus can come in and be as effective as Ryan Fitzpatrick is right now. I do one of the things is nobody throws the ball past the sticks anymore and the the buccaneers stressed the field. Like case keenum did last year with the Vikings. I don't think defenses are prepared for it anymore. Nobody throws the ball downfield into schon Jackson as a player we talked about last week if I had him I would try to treat them right now. Because he always every season of his career is always hot in spurts. And it looks like his bird is right now. So he's probably not. Did we lose you there, man? Oh god. Oh god. The Tampa Bay has no running game. I think that factors in the weather's going to get worse. I don't think there's any way that they can keep up the numbers the way it is. Go ahead. Hi candidates except for Mike. Now the question a couple of questions from one texture on the text line Quincy and noon or the newest Tom Brady weapon. Josh, gordon. For this weekend. I would go noon. I don't think he trust Gordon has got in a full practice. I don't think they're gonna. I mean, he might gave a touchdown week. They might throw them a bone down on the goal line. But I don't think he's gonna play heavy snaps. I would go with the known commodity commodity over the question Mark at least this week. But long term I would go with Josh court. You think he's going to be a good fit there in New England. If he's not I don't think they'll play. I mean, a lot of people are comparing it to Randy moss. Randy moss with news with Oakland just didn't care anymore. And then boom you play with Tom Brady and your numbers go through the roof. The one guy you have to feel sorry for Corey Coleman. Right. He's with the Browns out there. Josh, Gordon comes back home. They get rid of him. And he goes to the bills. He gets cuts from the Bill and he goes to the patriots. Oh, the patriots suddenly acquired. Josh Gordon, Korey Coleman out the door. He resigned to the practice squad. But man that guy everywhere he goes, Josh Gordon follow. Yeah. But you know, what? Throw a temper tantrum. Like he did on hard knocks. You get what's coming to you. That's for sure. How 'bout the same textures asking? Should he be giving up on the Sean McCoy? I I would I if you can get anything for minute trade, just it's such a bad situation. And I know that he's there there's all those allegations off the field. And now there's I think it was a burglary or robbery some accusation another one that his ex-girlfriend's accusing him of teams of master. They're turning it over to Josh Allen. They're gonna go young or later. I just don't see 'em having term success. It's it's it's a shame. This might be a first on our show errands asking do you want the should he play the Browns or the Seahawks defense? I I go with the Seahawks just because Dallas last week. That's who they're playing Dallas. They had the long pass on the opening drive, but beyond that they couldn't throw the ball and the week before they couldn't throw the ball against Carolina. I'm really worried about Dallas offense surpassing game. So Seattle at home the two struggles I still go with the Seahawks defense one more week. Just be if it's a points against Lee. I Erin also ask Brandin cooks. Emmanuel Sanders juju Smith Schuster pick too. That's another great problem to have. I would probably leave Schuster on the bench. Antonio Brown's been the squeaky wheel. So they could really give him the ball a lot just to kind of silence in big bend would have his back. But the other two are are just phenomenal place. I think Emmanuel Sanders could have a big week too. What about Carson Wentz making his return? We have a texture that's asking. Should he play him or John Watson? Tossup, but I'd probably go with Watson just going back to the home opener. The giants defense has been so terrible. You like apple who when he's played hasn't been that great. But he's if he to we'll Fuller's sneaky play I think the Texans could have a big offense of number this week. So I would probably go with watching. Doesn't sound. Well, I guess this is not a terrible conundrum to have pay barber or Matt Braida. Ooh. Yeah. On the waiver wire. I guess I like the problem is is if the chiefs are going to overwhelm the forty Niners and just score so many points. But if you don't have to read into what their game plan is you have to go read what the reporters they're saying. But maybe San Francisco will try to slow him down. Maybe they'll force feed the ball because they don't want to get into a track meet. So I would go with Braida just in case that happened. But I I don't want any part of Tampa Bay's running. Robert woods or Amari Cooper. I go Amari Cooper, just being especially if the point per catch. I mean, they really forced the Baltimore after last week mean we all saw the Bronco game..

"Football compete against your fellow listeners to win great weekly prizes compete against wheels myself, Matt Wiley, Nick Rotschild, Sam farnsworth's, and many many more of the media Lee here in the city, Colorado Springs. I and also the more you play the more likely it is that you will end up with our big season long prize at the end of this thing it is daily fantasy style. So if you miss a week, it's okay? But. It would behoove you to be locked in each and every week and joining us now to help you get locked in for this week is the fantasy football guru for the aforementioned, Matt Wiley, Matt how are you today? I'm doing well, how are you? I'm I I'm doing mediocre at best to be quite honest with you, Matt I don't know how when the ravens won by thirty five points. How Alex Collins got like three carries? Can you? Explain to me what is going on here. Yeah. That was a rough one the game just got out of hand quick hard to gauge. You know, we expect your flacco three touchdowns each week. No way. Just a couple of games that game. And then the the Tennessee game with the two two and a half hour. Rain delays games are just so hard to judge. I just kind of throw them out and move on. There are a few by the way. Do you think Alex Collins is a good play tonight? I do I do I think with the ravens get knocked out of the playoffs by the bingles last year and having to hear about, you know, going up to buffalo playing buffalo offload got into the playoffs for it. It's been like ring for two weeks. How mad they natty? Probably. If you go back to last year, and we won Dalton little terrible in through multiple picks against the ravens. So I I think the ravens are really been gearing for this game. Maybe even look past buffalo because really there's not much there in buffalo. There are a few big names when it comes to fantasy that are a little bit influx. For sunday. I'll start with Leonard four Ned how worried are you that he may not be out there against the patriots? I am worried. I know in the playoff game dealers last year when he hurt his ankle he came back into the game last week. I mean, they were never be the one. The one score game against the giants last week. And he never came back in a huge red flag. You have to take care of business to win that game. But I do think they were playing New England might have taken it easy to gear up for this game. But I'm not gonna use them. I use them last burned by Dr Pepper. And me and my lineup. I'm not going to use them. But if I haven't been a loan. I probably don't have any better option on the bench. I wouldn't use cornet, and that's one. How about the conquering hero of last week? Aaron Rodgers we still don't know what his status is. I is that a guy that you even going against the Vikings defense that you kinda hang on. And if he's cleared to go you put them in your lineup. That's the key is that they're planning to Viking since they're playing Minnesota. I'm not going to you there in Rogers. I'm gonna look for every other option also active on Seattle banged up. I knowing what practices today said he's feeling good. But he's still not one hundred percent. There's just too many red flag. I I don't wanna use Aaron Rodgers. But again, if it's a long, I probably drafted Aaron Rodgers of my first quarterback and waited forever to take another one. So I probably don't have a better option but for daily daily. There's no way I'm gonna use Aaron Rodgers before we move on from the Packers. It's always important to stay ahead of the curve with the Wednesday pick up in the waiver wire pickup, and I really think Aaron Jones running back if he wasn't drafted in your league because expended the first two weeks get him. Now get him right now. Go pick him up if he's available because they weren't able to run to Williams at three point one yard last week to play in the Vikings going to be airing Jones's job to do going forward. Matt Wiley, they gazette answering our fantasy football questions. Get yours in at two eight six zero zero four six alas injury question. I wanna ask you Michael Thomas sets the saints record or ties the saints record. I don't remember which one it was with receptions in their week one loss believe it or not to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I saw him listed as questionable. Do. You know, what the deal is with him? I don't I said everything's go in that game. But it's the Browns coming in the Browns gave up hundred yards Steelers. But if you watch what year saw any of the highlights from the Browns Steelers last week running game was wide open. So it could be a huge game for Kamara and drive time sports actually had Kamara the highest to the back to buy was Kamara. And I think it's justified. I think he could have a huge game, especially with Thomas teamed up. But if I have Tom if I'm playing you did have eighteen targets. I think it was last week, which is just unbelievable. Sixteen catches on eighteen targets. Couple of your fantasy questions at two eight six zero zero four six Dave ask breeze or rivers. Breath. I think I mean, it's another home game at the dome was against the Browns burger, let them up in the one thing we're going to get so Bill, but whenever west coast teams play eleven o'clock game. They seem off in the morning go. I don't think it'd be a huge game for Melvin Gordon. But I think that the chargers role, but I don't think rivers will light it up as much as Brees has the capability. From James big band or Russell Wilson. Oh, that's a tough one. But I go big Dan in the past Russian with Baldwin out. I probably going to him over most any quarterback. Yes. Me pick banner freeze that would be really tough one. Big Ben is the play there. With the Seahawks. Brandon Marshall might be another guy who the vailable in your league pricing. Let them in targets breath on targets Baldwin's out. Brandon Marshall is a viable fantasy option. Josh asks he traded his flex Brandin cooks for James, Connor. What's his likelihood of sticking around? I guess that's. It's a Levy on bell question. There's rumblings that bell could hold out all the way until week eleven. There's also some rumors of like a forty Niners or another team possibly being interested in bell. I just don't see I think. Sports talk fodder. No offense. But I don't think that they're going to trade levian bell. I think that eventually it'll be his job. But Connor right now. I would definitely take the running back over Iraqi. Right. Think keel over trade? He also ask I guess he's doing Josh is doing a lot of roster jockeying he has Odell Andy de'andre Hopkins. He's looking at for a running back in a wide receiver. If you could make up a fair value. I mean for OB, I don't know if you get I mean OB Jaylen, oh, if you could get fair value. I mean, certainly de'andre Hopkins you you could you could get something and also not feel bad that you gave it up, right? And I on the right track there, or do you think that there's a package that you would accept for Odell Beckham? If you add a Matt I would take for sure. He did have hundred target. The giants are gonna probably be behind a lot probably going to get a lot of yards. I mean, that's a great problem to have. But we talked a lot coming into the season. Or at least I did about Kareem hunt. He's the guy a lot of people are down on because he didn't produce week one. But those little lip several passes that Mahomes through the get four touchdowns. If you watch the game to the balls only win the air for like a yard those are gonna eventually turned into Kareem hunt. Touchdown. So if you get an owner who panic and has Kareem hunt wants to deal for Beckham. I would go with the running back over the receiver every time. Matt Wiley gazette joining us here on drive time sports. We have a question about Stafford and big band, but I'll turn this into a larger question. How worried are you about Matthew Stafford? Not at all. One of the few guys who always gets over four thousand yards and the running game was atrocious. And bell is banked. I'm sorry. Yeah. Launches banged up already. So I like Matthew Stafford and fantasy especially in a league that doesn't count interceptions against you. I would I would. Sam darnold outperformed him week one. But I would definitely rather have Matt Stafford going forward because that game was so atrocious. And it was on Monday night. That's the guy. Target him. Try to trade him. He'll get your tons of yard could get your tons of point. Wins in real life. Get your fantasy. Patrick Mahomes or Russell Wilson. This week. That bears the bears. Pressure could Wilson without Baldwin there. I don't know if he lacks the whole game. You mentioned cream hind. I do you see see Patrick Mahomes starting to do you think that as much as they gave tyreek the ball? Do you think that there's something to that that maybe people that thought that they would spend a high pick on Travis Kelsey, or maybe they picked up Sammy Watkins, I do you think that maybe owners of those two players should worry a little bit that Patrick Mahomes is found his guy. And if you don't have tyreek then you may not be getting as much receiving yards. Is you thought you were going to get now with Kilty and hunt? I'm not worried at all. But with Sammy Watkins, yes, I am. I think again, another your favorite team. So that's probably why you're bringing it up. But I'm on the defensive so terrible. Every game could be a shootout I want any piece of the chiefs offense. I can get you hunt. Healthy. Ultra form. And if you have an owner, who's very impatient. Healthy struggle again. He's definitely a guy to target because the tight end spot seems to be so average gronk. Here's one that. I don't think anyone's trying to weigh this on less. It's on the waiver wire. I'm just curious to get your thoughts about who might be a more viable fantasy QB moving forward. Ryan Fitzpatrick or Sam darnold. Darnold. I still think if Tampa does struggle. I think Winston would get the job back. I know that they've never confirmed it, but there's a lot of money tied up in James Winston, and I would just be stunned a few benched, and we know what Ryan Fitzpatrick is he always seems to start out even back when he was with the jets he to start the season finishes them. I think if you have Ryan Fitzpatrick, and you can get anything for him. Now is the time to deal him. I would not invest in him or count on him to win my fantasy. Jordan Reed or Jared cook. That's a good one. That's a toss up. But I would go if you can stay healthy as you saw with think think think he went to tied into the facts morning with receivers in especially in the red zone. He went tried in the morning with receivers he was typical Alec. So if I can have Alec tight end any year. Yeah. I would I would take that cook with great. But I I think the game plan was laptop Cooper with Bryant coming back. There's a lot of mouths to feed. And I it no Gruden criticized Carr for not taking shots down the field. So I just wonder if cook we'll have as many targets as he had on Monday night. And you talked about trying to get ahead of the curve here. I get ahead on some of these guys. Do you think that people like on daily famous? I know you're not a big tight end guy. But there are people obviously that want to get a really good tight end because they just like to have all the best players that every position is getting Jared cook and paying a higher price for him a little too reactionary for your taste, or do you think that Jared cook.

"Coming your way tonight after this program. I will be joined. Of course by switchback say coach Steve treats you but also their one of their newer newest Loney. Somebody that you're going to want to know his name because he's one of the up and coming star going to be stars of US soccer, Mason toy who is on loan from Minnesota United of the MLS. He's going to be my player guest tonight C wanted. Tune in for that better yet come down here. Thursday night football is tonight. Of course, ravens and Bengals. We will have coverage of that immediately following the switch backs coaches show. So a lot of reasons to be down here at Oskar blues in his just an awesome place to be which might be the most and most important invest reason to be down here. Matt Wiley gazette will answer your fantasy football questions coming up at four. Twenty. So if you want to get those in I be happy to send them his way to eight six zero zero four six I of course, have many many fantasy questions on my own because I finished dead last out of our. Media types pool on drive time sports fantasy football. So I got a lot of questions for mister Wiley, but you can get in yours as well. Two eight six zero zero four six crunch time at the bottom of the hour. Right now, let's talk about the Rockies. Now. I am not a huge believer in the Rockies bullpen. But the fact that they have a seven run lead here in the bottom of the eighth makes me feel like they will. Probably hang on and beat the Diamondbacks. Take three or four here. Of course, there's a lot to you know, when we have these day games game to talk about. And then we have the day game. Obviously last night DJ will Mayhew coming through in the clutch, I tongue in cheek posted a story on our xtrasports sports Facebook page and with the question should the Rockies have paid DJ LeMay, Hugh instead of Charlie Blackmon. This summer. Of course, signing up. Charlie Blackmon was probably the more prudent move at the time. But look DJ's putting himself in a brilliant position heading into free agency. I don't know what the market is for him. I'll ask Seth Everett national MLB insider coming up next hour. I can't imagine a lot of teams are willing to pay big big bucks on a second baseman. But maybe the Rockies can hope that he turns into like one of those Mike new stock has Eric hosmer types, although hosmer did eventually end up finding a home outside of Kansas City. And might we stock is the better example. But maybe just a guy who goes out there sees that. Maybe the money's not quite what he'd like it to be signs a one year deal with his team that would be a pretty nice scenario because. DJ has been pretty clutch. He it's a walk off last night. He had won a few games ago. And. Was the hero last night? I thought Chris Russians fifth inning was really the thing that kind of settled everything down because John gray wasn't especially good last night. He gives up four runs in four innings. Rustling comes in retires to three and four and the d backs order to kind of halt the scoring Nolan comes back in the bottom of the ending. Absolutely. Goes in gets a Patrick Corbin pitch. Low nearly in the dirt, and he headed out to show that he absolutely is back. And then the Rockies end up winning in the ninth. Now here today's been a little bit. Different Rockies were up pretty comfortably five one. Man. David doll plate misplayed a ball in centerfield allowed runner to get to third. Couple of hits later the Diamondbacks were trailing five to three. And you thought oh, this thing's going to get a little bit tense. And then in the bottom of the inning, the Diamondbacks loaded the bases box burger, walks homerun, and then the Rockies go on their own many hit parade. And now they lead it ten to three in Desmond batting with two outs. In the bottom of the eighth. You look at the home stand. I know that losing to the dodgers is bad. And hurt you. But the Rockies are going to end up going seven and three on this ten game homestand. That that's what you hope for you can't hope for much better than seven and three on a homestand. They hang on to win this. There will be two full games up on the dodgers dodgers play tonight in Saint Louis. A team for the record that they have not beaten this year, which was the case for Cincinnati as well. And the dodgers Dan fare very well there so a chance to potentially be two and a half games up by the end of the evening. And now would put them in good position. They have to go to San Francisco and they fared well against him in their last series. Can they take that show on the road and put themselves in a nice position going into the dodgers series? I remains to be seen. But a good homestand. Trevor story hits another homerun today. He the Facebook watch. Broadcast just put up that Trevor stories hit the most home runs by shortstop in his first three years in the league. So the superlatives continue for Trevor story, but a good home stand for the Rockies as they start to win win is the home stretch. Is it the last week last two weeks? I feel like we're kind of in the home stretch right now in the Rockies in a good position. Chad beddis is gonna take the mound for the ninth inning. And we'll see if he can nail it down without much. Issue. Two eight six zero zero four six is the text line. If you want to weigh in on the topics we're discussing today, of course, the Denver Broncos getting ready for the raiders. But the bigger story today is that they have released Carlos Henderson less than forty eight hours after bringing him back. Well, putting him on the active roster. He was on the suspended list for one game due to his marijuana game busted with weed. And I thought when they made that move that. It was not in their best interest. We talk all the time about how important is season is to the Denver Broncos. I don't think you need to have a guy like Carlos Henderson. There. And it's not the marijuana thing. It's going AWOL during bribe stern before in the first couple of days of training camp just left. I mean, if you had a co worker that just left, and honestly, I don't, you know, you don't care what the reason is right because you can send a text or some- somebody saying, hey, this is what's going on all of this kind of stuff. He just left and then show up in the Broncos. We're kind of scrambling to explain why he was gone. And then he just comes back. And then as soon as he's eligible to be on the roster after the game suspension, they put them right back on. I would say in your workplace that when it go over very well. So I thought look it's all that stuff. Plus you drafted Cortlandt Sutton. You're going to bring Carlos Henderson back to be what the fourth or fifth wide receiver on your roster. Just didn't make any sense to me. I understand he spent a third round pick. I understand you need them last year because of injury, but to me. Like, I don't want to say like. Locker room. Can't just like not a good presence to have just somebody that just bales on the team. Without even really leaving a note. Vance Joseph today tried to explain it and say that he said, it's a football decision. That's all I can say about that. And I think that second sentence is very telling because the first part of it's it's a football decision. Raises your eyebrows a little bit because you say football decision you have had two practices since he came back. And now you're making a football decision to cut him. So to me, that's that. That argument doesn't hold water and then Vance Joseph almost contradicts not contradicts himself. But. Says something that tells you that it's not football related when he says, that's all I can say about that. Then that means that there's some sensitive information here, and it has nothing to do with football. Ultimately, it's the right result. Carlos henderson. Really there's no use to have him on the team. And whatever the reason is that you cut them. I say at least you cut him, but don't tell us. It's a football decision because we clearly tell that it's not too eight six zero zero four six is the number. If you want to weigh in, it's also a handy number if you want to ask Matt Wiley the gazette some fantasy football questions I have enough to steer this whole segment, but I'd rather ask him your fantasy football questions,.

"And my next guest off for the ability to say that you are better at fantasy football than someone who gets paid to talk about it. Which is a big risk on our part. If I may say so myself big risk for myself because Matt Wiley the gazette gives you advice, and then he turns around and still beat you. So he has nothing to worry about in the fantasy football guru for the joins me. Now. Matt, how're you? I'm doing okay. I have a pink eye or something. So I stayed home from work today. But I made the commitment to you saw on here. But if I picture a little loopy, I'm gonna blame the Sudafed and next week. That'd be my excuse would not having a struggle hand up. I am constantly on Sudafed. So I totally feel yet. That's what I I am always on Sudafed. So therefore, if I say anything ridiculous than it can be traced back to that. Let me ask you here with Levy on bell not being eligible for Sunday's game. Do you think that James Connor would be a good fit for your good pickup for your fantasy team? Is it that easy to just get Levy on bells replacement? Or would you stay away from the Steelers running back position on Sunday? Right. Definitely would pick up Connor and rostrum for sure. And I would play this week against Cleveland that game in Cleveland is one of the actually the only game. It has heavy rain and wind in the forecast later into the game. So I could see in the second half just counting the ball. Both teams if they have to go away from the passing game. Now, again, the report I saw just said that the weather was gonna hit afternoon. So I don't know how late that will be. But I really don't want any part of the passing game for either of those teams in. I don't think the Browns of the rollover team that they they used to be. So I don't expect levian belt numbers. But I do expect a running back one in here. Running back to type numbers from Connor. KOA a couple things on that. First of all. You would not take Antonio Brown. This week. Oh, no. I I play Brown every week. There's there's no doubt about secondary players. I'm sorry about that. Yeah. I I wouldn't risk. Josh, gordon. I know he's on snap count. I wouldn't risk. Choose you big play cards. Yeah. I wouldn't risk him. I would have played, you know, watch go out and got three touchdowns, but I would be hesitant to to play to go all in with my Steelers. When you talk about James Connor about rostering him. Would you play him? And if you're playing like drivetime sports fantasy football in DFS style. Would you would you play him? If it depends on who else you spend your money on if you're loaded receivers galore. Sure, I would play him. I think he could get a touchdown maybe a hundred yards total offense. But I I chose not to roster him in the contest this week. I didn't either I ended up with Melvin Gordon and Todd Gurley. I feel pretty good about that. Don't tell me. Okay. Yep. So. With stars good deal. Matt Wiley joining us you could submit your fantasy football questions at two eight six zero zero four six who do you like tonight? Tonight's game. Really scares me. They these two teams played in the playoffs in the final score was fifteen to ten like Julio got his yards yet one hundred yards. But I don't think you're going to be flashy and beat Atlanta with. I mean, I'm sorry. I don't think Atlanta's going to have the ability to just go out there and score on on on the eagles. I don't think you're going to be able to push them around either. I think is a key play. But that game was fifteen to ten and alshon Jeffery played in it. So I'm expecting a really low scoring game. It pretty pretty if you remember it was it was hard to watch. I mean, it was very competitive in in that aspect but for fantasy. I totally would avoid the long term. Do you think Calvin Ridley takes a lot away from Julio Jones as the season progresses? I don't I still think. I still think that's Matt Ryan safety blanket. I think I've compared Julio Jones d'andre Johnson a lot because Andre Johnson needs to be the same way. He wouldn't score touchdowns your league rewards touchdowns. Julio Jones's valuable the fear and a point for Catholic will Jones will stick it to the ten catches fifteen catch games every now and then a breakout with a with a twenty five point performance. I don't think it's going to take away. I think it could take away from the new and hide in. But I don't think it'll take away from Julio. Here's a little either. Or or for you, Alex Collins Alfred Morris or Duke Johnson. Caller, go. Is he the guy there is? Okay. Well, at least I hope so I haven't roster couple of teams. But I think in the second half of last season. You know, he and marshawn Lynch two guys that you wouldn't think of being dominant they were dominant in the second half of last year. I think that's going to carry over and Baltimore's running game. We'll be strong behind college. But. On the other end of that the buffalo offense is just a mess. And if you're streaming defenses, are you just drop it at defenses. I would just not even looked and just take the defense is chasing buffalo. I didn't do that this week because the defense is facing Miami. But same situation. Don't don't overpay for the Jaguars defense pay down on defense and get somebody who's playing a terrible offense. Matt wildly of the gazette answering your fantasy football questions. Got a few coming more coming in on the text line Jeffrey ass, Devin funchess or Adam Phelan? I would probably go funchess. I I do think feelings going to have a big game too. But the thing about the forty Niners Minnesota's playing their middle linebackers than at the beginning of the game. So I really think that the the center of the field that Rudolph the back out of the backfield coke that'll be open. Whereas the deep shots might not be as much where punches is apparently the guy he's gonna get all the targets against our win the Carolina place, Dallas. So I would lean funchess. But it's very close. Would you pay feeling or digs? And I think that's a draw. I think that. Coin. Well, let me ask you let me follow up with Jeffries tax. He's already playing digs. Would you? Go. Would you play digs and feeling or would you still do digs and funches? I would I would diversify. I would go dig in case. Something happens with cousins twists his ankle or something. I I usually don't like to use to receivers on the same team Scott as read or Ingram at tight end. I everything says Reid is healthy. And they do have, you know, your man, Alex Smith. He's always gone too tight end. So I would go read. How do you think? This is kinda my own question. How do you think going to Washington infects Alex Smith is a fantasy player? Well, I think this year it's going to hurt him a little bit because I think the chiefs defense, well, he would never play the chiefs. But the point being like I would love to play the raiders defense twice a year. I would love to play this year. So I think playing in the AFC west, which isn't as strong as it has been traditionally I Smith numbers, I think he's going to benefit from playing the giants which are struggling defense. And you know, not the eagles received at the Cowboys, of course, marks on defense. So I I think it's a good move for Alex Smith in terms of fantasy. But he's should never be anyone's number one quarterback. You know, just to be clear as a backup in a in a spot feel great. But I at this stage, I wouldn't rely on him to be a number one. Would you go Chris, HOGAN or Marius Thomas? In the Super Bowl. If you go back way back against boom. He set the record for having the reception. And so I go with the Maria's just because he's more talented but HOGAN, Mike get more targets. But the Broncos receivers they drafted two receivers to take their jobs. So if ever there's a year to say, yes, the Broncos now or never married Thomas go out and prove it this is the year. So I would use the marriage top. Matt Wiley gazette answering your fantasy football questions. You could submit them honor text line at two eight six zero zero four six Aaron ask James Connor or Emmanuel Sanders? I think you already answered that with Jane you like James Connor a lot this week. I do I do. I would go on that one. How here's an interesting flex here. From Toby I'm assuming it's eighty Adrian Peterson or Brandin cooks. I go with Peterson that just because running backs get the ball. And they've come out and stated that he is there guy, even though Chris Thompson is healthy. But the one thing to remember it I know this small sample size but Peterson played for the cardinals last year. So always there's that revenge factor that goes into some of those games. So when it when it's that close, I always go with a running back over the receiver. Couple more moments here with Matt Wiley if you want to submit your fantasy football questions, two eight six zero zero four six is the text line if you would like to give us your fantasy football. I've got a quick for you. Okay. You got. Yeah. I've had some people text and asked me, and I have no hesitation on it. But some people are afraid to use Beckham this week because they're playing Ramsey and the Jaguars. I say us back you either use the first second third round pick on him coming off an injury. I still use them. Do you? I would because if there's one guy that's gonna make and I know Jalen Ramsey. I think he did he say mean things about oatmeal Beckham. It doesn't matter. The the one guy that that can certainly shut up. Jalen Ramsey to me is oh Beckham. I think I think he might be unstoppable. This year. So I play against everybody agreed especially with. Not just say he might be the best wide receiver in the game. Certainly the best in the NFC. And then you could argue him or Antonio Brown. I kind of think saquon Barkley is going to have an immediate impact, which will then open up the passing game four Odell Beckham. Don't you think? I do. But I don't think they're going to be able to do that again long-term. Yes. But this week against the Jacksonville. Oh, okay. Let's see. Okay. Hogan or Peyton barber as the flex. Ooh. I just got done saying I would go with the running back. But I in this case, I would go with HOGAN. I don't Tampa Bay's run game has been so shaky. They're playing the saints there in that dome. I could see the saints getting out early in that game being attract me with no Winston or anyone there. I think there could be a lot of junkyards for Tampa Bay receivers in the second half. But I don't see I don't see a game plan or anything developing where where Tampa Bay just jams it down the saints throats. Here's an interesting question. Jordan Howard or Tariq Cohen. I like Howard. I mean, the guy's been top five rushing. The last two years. He's one of the guys who he's a new Tiki barber. Like, no one wants to go into a draft and end up with with Howard on their roster. But then at the end of the year when you have them, you're like, you know, this guy is great for me. So I I I'm not ready to jump on the Cohen bag wagon just yet. But I still like Howard. Cam Newton or Jimmy Jesus. I Cam Newton one hundred percent. I think I think Garoppolo against the Vikings. I don't really like their weapons in San Francisco. Garoppolo is actually one of my most overrated players going into draft. I do not take him. I mean, he's a he's a better in real life quarterback. Andy Field goals, but he has never let it up. And I think when he was talking all that smack about Tom Brady and how he thought it was better than Brady. I think that's really gonna come back to bite him. Last one Matt before I let you go. Andrew lock or Kirk cousins. That's a tough. I probably go luck. I mean, he have so much to prove Marla MAC is still if either run game as if they're gonna turn to the to the rookie there. So I think they're gonna pass all the time, and they are playing the Bengals. But that is if that's your roster. You're you're you're in good shape. But I barely go luck on that one..
