Thanks one done radio a part of your day lots of time on this episode recap recap, everything of all the NFL games this week by recap probably the biggest surprise. and. I give them a win loss record. How did if you guys listen to my last episode you should know but I'll still recap episode. Then talk about the big ten schedule and how does state I mean the big ten inches wind the highest and to get back into. Okay. Let me just say that anyways. I talked about that Michigan schedule at a team schedules as well, and finally I end the show talking about NFL, injuries and why you guys seen. So many of them this year to start the season. All that on the show. Let's go. So I, WanNa start this episode with. recapping some of the big games from. From. Sunday. I just point out business before this episode record before. The. Monday night game and I did the saints. In that game however, I will just say if you listen to my Lhasa APSO out one game wrong. Now I told you before I don't do spreads and stuff like that. So sorry but I got one game wrong and that was the eagles in rams game. That's it. I picked the eagles to win that game right about every other game again I don't do points I don't do Oh, who's Gonna I don't do that. So if you're listening to point spreads and stuff whatever. But if you're looking if you're planning a pins game, I'm a pretty good spot right now. So yeah, that's pretty cool. But I want to recast something games and I want to start off with. I just talk about the Atlanta and cowboys game. First off Kudos to the cowboys for never giving up. You know why? Because you're playing the Falcons? Falcons have terrible job of the Liam sorry. How bad can you be at holding a lead? You guys looked terrible. You got most was the leading a sixteen point lead and you guys can hold that. Come on man. Like and then this is what blows my mind about this game. This will no sorry. Nineteen point lead. This little Mo blow the mine about this game nineteen point lead a halftime. Okay. Cowboys Gopher for an onside kick. As a this is Katie. Said you learn this stuff in high school high school? Okay. The kick side kick as by Greg's align. Okay. Does little helicopter kick is not even role ten yards yet but you have falcon players rounding the ball like I. Think it's a foul ball and guy, if we let it roll maybe he'll go foul. No, get the ball just get the ball wall. This isn't a foul ball play a foul ball enroll will cross the line and you're hoping for something but guess what you're going to give up is a single. A single. That's it but yet, you guys can't understand that in this situation, you're giving up a game winning. possession. And you guys are looking looking look no, do get the ball. You guys can touch it whenever it was like at the six like at the six yard mark of the ten yards it has to go and they're looking at it like do get the ball you it. You guys cost the game. Now that coaching too. That's something that you had to tell your guys just get on it. Get on the ball whatever happens who cares get a ball yes. You learn in high school like a mind you these players are in the NFL they had to go through college. It wasn't mean most likely. They had play high school football you learn this back then. And you guys still couldn't capitalize on it. You look at his bowl no dude. That was terrible. Okay. Falcons I'm sorry. Falcons fans they were that was horrible. Horrible Koji horrible play recognize player recognition whore bull Kudos to the cowboys for not quitting because you realize I'm playing the Falcons and the Falcons can never the lead sorry twenty eight to three never forget. Than some other games were pretty big. WanNa. Talk about chargers game. Very interesting. Justin. Herbert finds out before I pretty much before kickoff that tyrod is not playing like an hour before who knows tyrod can't play. You're going he thought coach Anthony Lynn was kidding. I'm not kidding you're playing. And he went out there and he actually did really good. I will say the interception he did throw was stupid. He was rolling out to his left is a third and one, hundred, thirty, two, he easily could have ran. There was no one there you could have ran for the first down kept the drive alive. The biggest thing we play the Kansas City chiefs is what keep the ball away from that offense. If you gone the first down, you would have kept the drive going kept it away from Patrick Mahomes, which is the name of the game. You would have done that and then who knows maybe sealed it I don't know but the biggest thing is. Guy When the time position they did thirty nine twenty as far as the minutes are concerned however that he threw a pass to the middle of the field intercepted terrible throw definitely a rookie mistake. You know he's looking at the film thinking Oh my Gosh One bad throw. But overall just her played really good like he took on a challenge I'm planning Patrick Mahomes I know this has to be either be on top of my game world we're GONNA lose and they did lose but they went to overtime loss unaffordable like. Pretty good stuff on the chargers also now game let me just recap the Colts Geigy, my team, some Credit Johnson Taylor I start one hundred yards on the ground with a touchdown. Colts looked like a dominant team as it should be or are the vikings that bat I think kirk cousins I'm never been kirk cousins fan I'm says before I'll contain safe never been a fan of kirk cousins do I want to see a seed? Yeah. Maybe. I've just never been a fan what kirk cousins does as a quarterback also bengals browns, bengals you guys. have got to protect Joe Borough okay. Let me tell you Andrew Luck Fan Colts Fan. We lost our quarterback the future because why? Because our line could not protect him he got her he got mentally exhausted everything he had to go through and he quit and you're gonNA lose that Joe Berle has a bright future. He threw sixty one times but he's got a bright future three touchdown passes three hundred yards passing Joe Berle the future of your team bengals in this drat draft lime in the colts did that when they had all Andrew lucked situation. Before Before they had it and they'd rather quit Nelson. They knew we go line we gotta get Lymon Lymon Lyon protect, our future. And they did he just he had an injury he just didn't want to deal with it anymore advocate. I'm I'm fine with that. Cool. Also. WanNa point out. The BRONCOS and steelers Game Jeff Driscoll good job will coming in and leading the team to almost win i. mean that was almost a win against the broncos against the steelers. Excuse me Jeff Driscoll drew lock out with a shoulder injury just happens jesuit school comes in almost gets a win unfortunately just doesn't get the job done, but he kept them in close and then finally the pages in the seahawks what I WANNA point out about this game Cam. Newton play great they had a chance to go go get the win. My thing is this and This is this is my biggest pet peeve. We all I think everyone knew what was going to happen right everyone knew an alas play the game. A was a a yard two yards away. They were going to run a quarterback run CAM Newton. Right? I mean, why would I six foot five, two, hundred, and fifty pounds? Can Run, we can leave why not however the seahawks. To. My play call hours talking about this Wa was watching the play wallows listen to Chris Collins Worthy. Now, Michael's all say all this is what's going to be going to be this going to be I'm thinking myself and they know that to maybe you do a fake, maybe just have them run you sneak get tight end out whatever it is run all son just throw it over toss over flippant throw it. I don't know whatever it is. Do something everyone knows and I get oh humility marshawn lynch play no, you WANNA why because that was on second down Or. Third No wasn't. Second second down. Were they through the pass it was intercepted by a butler. That's the difference. This was four down game on the line listen. What's the best play? Yeah. We Got Cam Newton Great, but they know what's coming. And that's my point with all of these Games as we knew I watch everyone knew what was going to happen. So the seahawks just see how many great defensive play to get the win. So, big ten news came out. Big Ten schedule came out. Can I just say I'm excited I got super excited I was Ryan down every on the Fox sports, TV, AMAS, write down every single play a game excuse me for missing it and I'm writing these games down I'm thinking myself hold. How do we have a tough schedule? Okay. We play our first game at Minnesota and legend sink unless that's sinking. Player, first game at Minnesota. Right congratulations to us. We get a hard team to starting out whatever. But who also plays first game. Ohio state. Is. Want compare, Ohio, state, Michigan schedule. So whatever The BRASSICA goes to Ohio state is the BRAS. Excuse me good this year probably not are we're supposed to be good this year maybe we'll find out against. MINNESOTA, the next week. Ohio. Says toughest matchup doubt. This is. Probably, the match up of the year Ohio state goes to Penn State Wilder nope. There actually won't be any fans there. The big ten is come said, there won't be any fans at any big ten games I get. Cool. No problem. So, how's it goes to Penn State Michigan State goes to Michigan I'm cool with that. I mean we can beat them. I feel confidence Michigan State will sit. Next week ruckers goes to Ohio state. Why aren't you just give them a high school team to play how easy of a schedule is that you'll have one big match up so far and to walk in the parks. Okay. Nebraska fans I'm sorry thanks for getting this football back. But what I hope you guys upset Ohio state I don't see that happening though okay and who do we get? We go to Indiana Indiana we should be able to be but they are always a tough team in place scrappy. Okay. There's just something about Indiana COMPLA- tough with not only US but Ohio. Say this team just plays tough but it's something happens towards the end when they just run out of gas. The next week. Wisconsin goes to Michigan. Okay. Wisconsin's a very tough team. Very tough. And then WHO's Ohio State get? They go to Maryland. Wow what an opponent INDIANA, goes to a house that again Indiana can be scrappy team but I think Ohio stay will handle just fine I M Michigan will handle the to hopefully but. That's my opinion on that, and then Michigan goes to rutgers. Thank you. At least we get rutgers to play. Then, Penn state goes to Michigan. Thank you. Thank you for giving us. Penn state. At at home. Thank you. For. That and Ohio State Goes Illinois why don't you just make it easier? and. Then the last game of the season. Sorry not the last game. Burr. Almost. Their. House that goes to Michigan. State. Again, I don't think Michigan State me that good this year. Coaching change new culture new regime. I think it's just GONNA be different for this team maybe in a couple of years Michigan. State will be back I just don't think right now they do or they are coming back whatever. and. What are we got? We got Maryland comes to Michigan I'm cool with that again. Those are two good opponents to play to gifts ready for Dunstan done. Michigan at Ohio State. Great. Last game of course, we all knew this was going to be on schedule. So I'm not sitting there saying that I actually was kind of curious is going to be like in the middle of the season beginning and they still kept it at the end. They kept the rivalry of Michigan and Ohio state last game. Will that play a role? The big ten seating I don't know I doubt it do I think we can deal house stay I don't know how to see how play against our other tough opponents against Minnesota against Penn state a against will name that good against Wisconsin. I don't see how we play. I WANNA say this. This'll be my last closing argument from this subject. Michigan has probably the toughest schedule. Okay you have. MINNESOTA. Wisconsin Penn State. Ohio state. Michigan State. I don't think it'd be good but we don't know but I don't think they will be good Ohio State Nebraska. Penn. state tough share. Rutgers. Walk in the Park Maryland. Part Indiana should be walk in the Park Illinois Walk in the Park Michigan. State should be walk in the park and then Michigan hopefully were not a walk in the park, but we don't know yet. I'm just saying I don't know if like the big ten committee was like listen we gotta make sure a team gets in. And they gotta make sure the they beat a beast of an opponent in Penn state. And we gotta make sure they beat somebody else. That's pretty good towards the end of the season and then maybe Michigan who knows But this is I. Think the Penn State or Michigan or sorry the Penn State Ohio state in my opinion or Michigan. Mesa way this is why I'm GonNa say Michigan if we beat Minnesota K. I think we'd be Michigan State we can be Indiana. Wisconsin. Come into our turf we should be able to again we should be able to rutgers fine Penn state tough opponent but if we lose to them then we beat. Maryland. And we play Ohio State. If we bill how say they may still put us in right Bruno's we don't know so much of the big ten schedule I. Love that we have a schedule excited that we have scheduled by not say if the scheduled in Michigan has and it's GonNa be a tough sled for us and it's going to be a sweet walk in the park for Ohio State. By, closing argument my closing statement for this episode. Revolves around the NFL and We saw a lot of injuries happen in week two. Out A lot of big time injuries in week two. Okay. Obviously involves about. Playing time as far as prep time getting, right okay. Let's just start with big the big names gone for the year saquon Barkley Gone Joey Bosa gone. I keep beginning Bosa buzzmachine Nick Bosa excuse me gone. Peres Campbell receiver. For us. Out, for probably may possibly gone. Okay Molly Hooker safety gone. Jimmy. Garoppolo. Had A high eagles. He has a chance to play. He's probably going. You're hurt earned probably not party to not play. Bruce Irvin for the seahawks John. You saw a lot of injuries habits A. Christian McCaffrey for six weeks gone Cortlandt Sunan. As ACL gone you saw lot of injuries happen of teams who God these guys were not even. Non contact injuries or if they were contact, it was like dude I usually get tackled like that and you don't have an injury. You know last seen guys. And certainly in the ways that they were tackled. and. They've gone up just fine. And I get sometimes freak injuries sometimes stuff happens I understand that it's not always the same but when you take away practice preseason all this like remember when the lockout happened. Years ago but they came together with a deal I. believe this is a CAM new first year. Yeah because he was drafted GonNa play but you like we're done and no, one can interrupt him his players. Okay. Cool. But he still had played so he was set so You did see a lot of training camp. Oh, Ta's Pro I practice you see a Lotta because of what happened in the lockout. So what happened lots of players got injured year with Lee ACL mctl's whatever might be and I get drew lock injury is a shoulder injury you get tackled certain way you get hurt your shoulder I understand that. But. Let's take a look at why this stuff could happen is because we had very little time to get ready for the season. What do you expect this was going to happen. Was Too. Many. There was not enough variables. There was not enough. Hey, what else can we do? To get ready for the season, we can't we had to like the limit practice but also half practice like we have to don't do bunch but please practice it's like it's so hard to decide. But we go out there we put on a show we get hurt. And I'm not saying that why guys are opting young guys down because of health I I don't know whether it's corona virus can do to me. Yeah I don't know we can do to me either. But what does is? Guys are playing that maybe June you may see guys that don't always play on now playing more, and now they're getting her 'cause they're not ready for what they're taking on. So What we're trying to say is what I'm trying to say excuse me. Is Get ready unfortunately for more injuries? Now, I think you may see more injuries again next week on. I know inge part of the game I get it but. How happened like Nick Bosa Guard for the? Year. Okay. Like I'm just looking at four years where he muster he's GonNa miss some weeks. Okay. Sakon Barth gone the year. tyrod Taylor was chest injury. that he suffered before the game. which is we are happened but it happened and then just a herbert goes in McCaffrey gone parents Campbell Cam Acres Orion back. Gone. Injuries happened. And I Unfortunately. I don't WanNa see anymore happened against Bruce Irvin for the seahawks. Gone. Brandon? Sheriff MC L. Spraying for the Washington football team three to five weeks. It's a lot. As a fan it's like you don't WanNa see these. As a player fan whatever it is, you don't want to see anybody injured, but you will promising more this habit because once guys are now starting to get in shape physically you may see the we three macy's and more like big time injuries maybe week four out that you should see maybe these injuries really decrease because now these guys are really in game shape a bodily buys are adjusted to the game they're playing now with Kovin and everything but just. The injuries are piling up especially the big time injuries and fantasy football owners. I'm sorry I don't have a team fancy team this year, which is good. But I'm sorry about you guys. I. Know A lot is projecting your team. And no longer playing unfortunately. Thou episode of one radio. Thanks to the show. Be Sure to subscribe to one on.

Oh, and so fun to have you with us Dorian male ESPN radio taking it to noon eastern time. There is football tonight. Will you watch are you in the least bit even intrigued perhaps with the alliance? That starts tonight. Eight teams some names you'll recognize we'll get into this a little bit coming up in fifteen minutes Wednesday was national signing day. Yes. There's the early signing period. Did you pay attention to Wednesday? What should you know? In the mel's big board of wide receivers. That's all all of that is coming up this hour in life and everything else. Big board. Always of I always think holiday hits. Yeah. Yeah. I do too. I always comes to mind that the most of holiday hits wide receivers. Just doesn't sound right. Nuts. Rousting? That's the big holiday hit your that December. But right now think about the NBA all the deadlines tough. What's going to happen in free agency? You hear all the names out there? Who's got what draft picks coming up you start taking? Okay, especially if the warriors start breaking up, but just for the sake of this hot list, we're getting them out of there. No, forget the warriors. Every NBA franchise for the sake of this is at zero championships right now all time nobody's ever one one. And you gotta get the warriors out of the equation. What for no, no, no, no, what franchise Mikey will be the next to win multiple championships. It is. What is your hurry? Mikey. Man. I was slow last week. I'm trying to make up for last week. Okay. Got you out at outsider mic, by the way. As if you didn't know that. All right. So here we go. This was a fun heartless to put together. This was Mike as idea and a brilliant one at that. Brian. All right number three on your list of franchises. Not name. The warriors. That'll be the next to win multiple titles. Go I'm going to go to the Knicks it three Doria. I could've put them higher. I'm not a wait and reserve judgment. And not go too crazy. I have the cap space to pay to max players this summer with the worst record in the league could add the number one pick. But they may not have the number one picks. We don't know if they're gonna get signed Williamson RJ Barrett. We don't know that yet if they do that would hope them that's a quick turnaround. If you can do that, they're one of the teams, obviously, they trade Anthony Davis would he consider resigning with he says he would. So that's a positive could happen. You could take us the first overall pick. If you get it parlay that was something to trade for Davis. You're not gonna lure elite free agents to sign on the dotted line this summer necessarily just cubs. You have the worst record as as far from giving. You'll get the first pictures too many question marks about getting those guys that you may want. But they don't want to go there and the number one picks not guaranteed. So until those things. Fall into place. I'm not gonna put him at one or two. But if they do fall into the place, it'll be great for them in great for Knicks fan. I'll put them at three. Yeah. Man. I like the Knicks. I had him on the list. I told you I had ten teams on the list. I got a third of the league in at least listed there. And yes, if K D And kyri happened you have to look out for them. I didn't put him in my three I put the Lakers at three, and it's because of LeBron and it's ridiculous. If we don't put the Lakers in this conversation, you assume that he will be able to pull big time free agents. I don't know if they're gonna make the deal. I don't know if they're going to beat Boston out for that AD may would prefer the Lakers. I think to Boston at least right now. But it seldom is going to be up to the pelicans, and what they wanna do here. But yes, LeBron will get some guys his way there's still a lot of young talent. I like on that team. I'll go Lakers number three on our hot years. This LeBron plan I house we're talking about that with Mike. Yeah. He's thirty four now splayed forever. He's played always. Extra games and the NBA playoffs. So mean, two more years. So for us to thirty six thirty seven will the guy he's going to be the key guy for the next. I think he could be the key. I for the next four or five years with a little bit of what we call it load management. Like we saw the other little Tom Brady show. Well, I mean if anybody is. Number two who you got. I'm gonna go Boston re-signed kyri obviously land in Davison a trade convinced him to resign. And then you've got potential multiple titles. But they're both big ifs. That's why I put him a two not one their biggest we don't know kyri. We don't know what's going to happen there. And we don't know if they can get Anthony Davis athletes for the Knicks. Yeah. The worst record that doesn't guarantee you the number one pick. That's why I put the Knicks at three. There's nothing guaranteed there. We don't know if they can lower free agent. So question marks there question marks with the Celtics. That's why instead of being at one. The Knicks are at three in the Celtics are too. I agree. I got Boston at two as well. I think a lot of it hinges on keeping kyri though. I really think they need to. I lot of it hinges on keeping cut because without Kyrie. It's a less desirable destination for a D, although automatically he doesn't have the say here. The pelicans. The pelicans have the say now Boston may say look without an assurance from AD that he'll sign beyond next year. We don't want to make the trade and they pull out. I don't know if that ends up happening or do you take the risk and the chance that Toronto has taken with Kawhi that we don't know if that's going to work out yet that Oklahoma City took it Paul George that did work out yet. You just say we're gonna hear to sell you, man. We'll see. But I do have the Celtics. They're they've got a minimum of two first round picks in this draft kyri, especially if eighty goes there. Hayward Tatum tons of young talent. So yes, Boston to again. It's our hot list. What we're doing warriors are not eligible for the hot list. Everybody's zero titles. What franchise will be the next to win two. That's our hot list. You went New York. Three Boston too. I went Lakers three Boston too. I bet we agree on number one. Who is it? They made the trade for Tobias Harris. It's the Sixers ending. Ask the beat Dr Tobias Harris, he talked about a guy who's greatly improved. The last two years in terms of shooting the ball with range shooting with rain fibers first six seasons in the league. Thirty five percent less than thirty five percent from the three point line. Each of the last two years he shot over forty percent from that range, the bias Harrison's, a nice piece. They added talking about Embiid Simmons Butler Radic now Sixers can get harassed Butler and re-sign in the offseason. Then all of a sudden, you have the nucleus capable winning, multiple NBA titles keys. Always always. And we always talk about Dr. It's the thing. It's given key team chemistry. What would be if that clicks in and kicks in with that group of talent that nucleus talent? If all those things happen. The Sixers are the guarantee team to have a chance to win multiple titles over the next few years. No question. I mean, they're I who knows if it'll won't probably I wouldn't think it would come this year. But, but who knows I mean, there are they do they got to I and three seconds. I mean, it's. In this draft alone to I and three seconds to find ways to to find the right pieces to put around the core. You already have no question. We got Philly there. All right. I'm going to rip through the other teams. I had real quick. And then you tell me who else you considered, but Celtics are on the list sixes are on the list. I put Milwaukee only really because it Jaanus. There's a lot of roster question marks. We talked about with Bobby marks around them in this off season. So I didn't give them real serious consideration. I had the Knicks on the in the conversation Lakers. I used thunder PG and Russ won't be there forever. They're very dependent on the draft nuggets. I considered them. I think the great duo to start with when you're looking at Murray and Yokich who is one of my favorite players clippers ton of draft picks desirable city. It's one of the cities that eighty has been mentioned to and would sign an extension to according to his agent again draft picks to work around him or draft picks to trading for pieces around him. I could see. K D And AD in L A next year, potentially with the clippers. So let's see the rockets are they ever gonna defend well enough. So the James harden show, and then Mike, a our producer said, wow. Neither has the Mavericks considered him. Don't trust porzingus health. Love Luca dodge, just I think there's more question marks than certainties around Dallas. Yeah. I had Dallas as one of my possibilities. My fourth team was the clippers and they opened up room for that to max contracts, they're targeting Leonard there in the mix for Davis, Milwaukee is well, but I was right there with Dallas the clippers Milwaukee there's where my next three Lakers. I was down the line on Mike, and I had a little conversation. I consulted with Mikey. And he said Nadal on the Lakers because LeBron's age side them down to fifth, but I think the clippers I would go clippers and Dallas and Milwaukee probably six that would have been my top sexy Lakers at seven just some. So intrigued by how the bucks Bill that roster next year there. Going to look they built a new arena. They've never been better as I know they wanna title in the seventies. Whatever I'm not talking about Paul presi bucks. I'm talking about these books. They've never been in a better situation in the last forty plus years, but they're going to have to spend money and go into the cab. And if they're willing to do that, then look out Milwaukee Boston and Philly and east and going back to the Lakers. Do you think Anthony Davis is a Laker next year? It works. I stayed to you say because because there's some semblance of assurance that he'll sign a long term deal there that would be my front runner. Still would be the Lakers. Yeah. You you put over the next few years because obviously LeBron's still got two to three to four great. I'd say three to four great years last you put LeBron with Anthony Davis. Now, that's a windows closed. That's why I say Dr their their titles would have to come in my opinion over the next two three four years as opposed to down the line when the broad is. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Tailing off. And it's it's not the same. Lebron? So the Lakers are, you know, I think you put them higher for that reason, you expect them you expect them obviously to get Davis. Think about this. If LeBron in three or four years. Is at eighty percent. Seventy percent of what he is. Now, he's still a top five player in the NBA. Like, he's still a guy who can lead you to championships with pieces around him. That's that's why windows the windows getting the win rate. Here is small it three to four years. Football tonight professional football tonight. What you need to know. I wanna know Mel or you going to watch it. I'll tell you. That's what straight ahead Dorian Mel ESPN radio ESPN app. I can't believe it that Gerald is presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets.

That's the maybe that may be the most exciting part of all of it. And then, you know, you miss the camaraderie, you miss that gang of guys you around every single day. You know, you got a hundred players you've got twenty systems and people around to support staff helping you trying to win, and, you know, and then you go from that to all of a sudden being alone. Most of the time, you know. So it's you know, it's different. So there's a there's a big adjustment. And, but I knew that, you know, I I was aware that was going to be the case, you know. So so we'll see where it goes. But again, it's not what I was looking to do not not, you know, wasn't mind tension whatsoever to coaching in, but the door might be open a little more now anyway than it was a couple. Years ago fair to say that I'm not gonna say that. Because that's what's going to be then printed everywhere. Well, it was it was open, and you and I are soon as we got done with that interview. When we went to break, you me, Mike, Mike everybody in the everybody said he's coaching again. He's coaching soon. Just didn't see this one coming right? No. No, no. What did you think? When you heard Bob stoops to the XFO, I was not shocked because we did think he would coach again, you could tell hearing it. He really missed coaching. The XFL. Evidently, it was Oliver lock who was a an instrumental part of getting him to do this you. It's heard the same thing. Dari that Oliver luck played a part in this. Right. And it was somebody else you were talking about as well. Yeah. I mean, Oliver luck played a part in it. But you know, it's the the XFL like it was eighteen years ago is run by. WWE and Vince McMahon and. If you know WWE, and I don't at all, okay. But I know Jim Ross, and I know Jim Ross because I'll occasionally go back and forth and communicating with Jim Ross who is a longtime announcer for WWE. And every wrestling person knows who is Jim Ross is an Oklahoma. And he's an enormous Oklahoma fan and became very good friends with Bob stoops over a number of years will Jim Ross put Bob stoops in touch with Vince McMahon and spoke very highly events in Bob says, and I read this I think in in an article in the Atlantic and Bob was like I heard the idea nothing. No, no, no, no, no. This isn't it? But you know, what? Like Bob stoops has sons the Plato you at least one of them, Drake. I'm not sure if there's other one does he's very tight with oh, you still part of the athletic department. Norman in Dallas or three hours apart. So and in the fall, he's not coaching. So this is he gets to do the thing in the fall he gets to coach now in the winter. He's always I believe had an inch to just see what it's like coaching outside college. And now he gets it, and it's the right fit. And he's heard great things about working with Vince McMahon. And and it's in Dallas, and it's close. And so why not and I think it's more of just a, hey, let's see what happens type thing and Oliver just say father of Andrew luck. Yeah. Or quarterback West Virginia NFL runs the XFL. So Oliver luck. I think had influenced there obviously with Bob stoops for him with their counting Dari a couple of things local fans gravitating to players from schools Arezzo team run hotshots run by Phil savage. Coach by new Heisel, bringing former Arizona state players like we'll see this differently. Be right. So this this alliance of American football is looking for that. And the big time names of. Coaches even assistance former players, Jim Jeffcoat, others Owen. Look at the Harrison. They got new Heisel Hugh freeze is the offense coordinator. I'll give you ody's the defense. According great defensive coordinator. Charles are buckle. Charles had tried was a tight end coach with Arizona. That's right. Jay, Jennifer, king wide receiver coach with Arizona. Okay. You go to other coaches you see down the line here. Mike single Terry Dennis Thurman as defensive coordinator, you got Steve Spurrier in Orlando Orlando in San Diego. Dennis Erickson, coaching Salt Lake. The Ike Reilly coaching San Antonio. And they're counting on gambling the betting aspect that. That people will bet on these games that there will be gambling. And there will be that interest from the fans to have a reason to watch beyond names that frankly you look through the roster star. There's not a lot of guys I see some young players. I wanna see how they do not long ago. Aac Rwasa was playing at Iowa not long ago, you add your Trevor Knight. Playing and then college football and Murray's the quarterback. Burn. Everybody would see the former second round pick the jets. Can he kind of change some things, you know, in his Liber can he develop into a guy the NFL has some some interest in down the road? Some from an intrigue standpoint, those are some guys the file Trent Richardson was a bust in the NFL. We know that he's played for the Birmingham team Matto teams yet Matt Simms. Arizona Atlanta Birmingham. Memphis, Orlando Salt Lake San Antonio, San Diego. The af alliance of American football starts tonight ten weeks so ten games each for eight teams four games a weekend.

That's phenomenal. Yeah. Has got a week ago. We greatly. That's great. All right. Real quick. You gotta watch this. Eight f. Yes, I am. You are going to watch it tonight. You're gonna walk a couple of these. I don't like to start. I don't like having no kickoffs. But I get kind of a head of what the NFL may do down the road. I hate no PAT's. I don't get that. They're forcing everybody to go for two. It takes the two out the intrigue of the two because the decision to go for to make that a focal point when you eliminate the the and you say you gotta go for two. It's just another play. I I don't get that what the team a lot of missed this year in the NFL MU couple years move it back the way the NFL did and it's not on automatic. And it it makes them straight bring strategy to the game. I don't like that. But I think the said hackenberg or some of these other guys hackenberg with Memphis, and we wanna see we're a couple of good friends of ours. Bill polian. Good friend of mine runs the league. Phil savage. Good friend of mine runs. The Arizona team. The. The hotshots there. The favourite Dari in Vegas. The arizona. Hotshot led by our good friends. Bill savage and Rick new highs. Another good friend of mine are the favorites in Vegas to win the alliance of American football championship love it. I love it. All right. So you're in. I don't know if I'm going to be in that. So you have to go for two. Does it hound us to or does it count as one like cinching too? Yeah. So, you know, that's one of those things is you know, what that reminds me of like watching like six and seven and eight year old football. You know, the scores are like eight six or or, you know, fifteen. Eliminate that. I mean, it's not easy to make a PAT. It's not automatic. That's football. It's what we're at the. I don't like taking what we ROY is traditional football out of it. I get the kick off. I get that the injury. And they're kind of go head. They're trying to be a head of the curve there. But I don't know why you don't leave the PAT in and make it a decision then when you go for to you focus on you gave up the one. Now, you're going for two it's a strategic thing where you can second guess a decision. Okay. Now, you're saying automatically beans. It's just another play. That's all it is just another play it really defeats the purpose. I think that was a bad decision. All right. All right. I do like the no kick us. I do. I think I think the NFL will be there. And if you start out on the twenty five yard on the twenty five. Yeah. Timeouts. I think I love it. They say less fewer timeouts. Fewer timeouts fewer time away from the action. The uniforms the helmets the cau- love that stuff. Hey, look and how they go. And we'll see if you watch a week like the XFL was great ratings for the first week. And then nothing so is it one in done is at five minutes in the sun one week in the sun. Can they sustain it through the draft season with with the March madness and spring training and the draft and baseball and everything else is going spring practice in college football? Can they sustain throughout the season a higher or decent rating? I should say Dorian mill ESPN radio ESPN app. I'll check it out tonight. I'm going to have basketball on I love the thunder game on. And I. SEC basketball for the SEC. Now, we'll probably throw the alliance one of the games up on one of the TV. We'll just see what did you see? I don't care. I want to see if people are there people go if the local markets even care, and then really the thing will be like do they go on the second home game? You know, like you go check it out the first time, then is it worth your time and money to come back. We'll find out we'll find out together Wednesday was national signing day. I am like I cover it. We did stuff all day on the SEC network. I used to do it all day on ESPN you I'm not a recruiting guy. I do not follow it over the course of the year. I will worry about these guys. Once they start making an impact on the football field. The idea of decommit of decommissioning like I don't I just don't like it. I don't care for. It. Doesn't doesn't do a thing for me? I'll fake it on the air. I don't mind saying I don't understand why this is like the giraffe for college. I know man, these guys rabid immediate impacts you wrestle it's football. I don't know how you know. Most of my buddies grown up in Oklahoma, most of them love it. I get it. Like, I know it's popular. Pop huge impact. I just don't care about it that much. That's completely baffling. Why just like, okay? Let's let's see. I I am curious two or three years from now. How many of the names I spent my entire Wednesday saying, right? Will I be saying a lot of them? And that'd be great. That'd be great. I'll tell you. What was a couple alarming thing. I don't know if you that this had happened. Are there was a law? Roaming, for me is the Pac twelve there are against gotta be argon got beat to the Pac twelve with Clemson is to the xactly. Right. They got Darrien Dr because argon had to six best class. According to the PIN rankings, right? Yeah. They were ranked pretty high in terms of that everybody else Dan ally, yet USC twenty Stanford at twenty one Arizona state Herm Edwards. Great job gun into twenty-six. Herm got two quarterbacks got Jaden Daniels who was the best dole threat going on the better dole threat quarterbacks forty fourth best player Joe Yellen. When the better pocket passers sixty third quarter kennison win Florida state's wake. That's a joke going on over there. The Florida state was another warm. I think they had like the nineteenth best glass, but the the the number one recruit, a Florida state warrant a state. The Seminoles was the ninety third best player on ESPN three hundred Clemson wins the national title their best player was ranked thirty fourth and they had the ninth tenth best. Couple other things star. If you're the SEC's dominance, a dominate first round moxie dominate the top twenty five big board, and they dominate recruiting again tw-. I went to the top fifty players twenty eight from the SEC and six big twelve three pack twelve three ACC you add up the other four conferences, right? You get to sixteen nineteen you get to twenty two at twenty eight. So the other four combined. Do you got twenty eight and you're one conference or the of the four of the five star recruits got nine of the fourteen top ten players got seven to ten. They completely destroyed. The SEC. Every other conference thirteen of their fourteen teams. Vandy X is out thirteen SEC teams finished in the top thirty five of the national rankings by team. According to ESPN, remarkable Ridikot Florida, by the way, Tom Luga Bill, a national director of recruiting big on what Dan Mullen was able to do with his second. But really his first full recruiting class for the Gators Florida proved something that even though the recruiting process is very celebrated right now, it's still a marathon not a sprint. I remember Florida fans reaching out to me in the fall all concern because they didn't have enough four guys in the work and high profile guys you hire Dan Mullen, who you could make the argument has been the best evaluator and developer of talent. Maybe in the last ten years of college football Mississippi State, 'cause you're not getting the ready made guy. That's true. You're having to project you're having to look for and then you gotta develop them. And I'm and I tell Florida fans put your faith in the guy that you just hired because of that. If he's identifying something I think, he's. Got enough equity in stock that he might know what he's talking about. And then boom, they have killer first signing period, they end up getting too big time players one's a corner at a huge need position in Cairo helium, and they get him today. So they really close to that area areas from Freddie and Fitz. Simons Florida had a remarkable day Florida state, by the way, train wreck city. I don't know how they're at nineteen. They must have had really highly rated guys at other positions because this is the second recruiting class on a row. There's no quarterback they booted the Andre Francois from the team. I don't know who Blackman I guess, I don't know who's gonna play quarterback for them. They have zero zero depth. It seems chaotic in Tallahassee right now the quarterback that was supposed to go there. Mel is from right around where I am sun Valley High School in Monroe North Carolina slash Indian trail, right where we to live right outside just east to Charlotte. Sam Howell is his name. And he was a late commitment from Florida state longtime come it late. D commitment from Florida state before the early signing period. And you know, he signed with Mack Brown at UNC. So he stayed in state. He's going to couple of hours away to go play at you and see for MAC like it is just brutal. What's going on right now in Tallahassee and real quick? From TM ranking standpoint, Tennessee up at eleven great job hair. Jeremy Pruitt stunning really remarkable job. Ohio state. You knew it'd be a little tough as relationship building that needs to be done. And they didn't have that in Bryant day taking over Ohio State at sixteen the Brassica Scott frost, you gotta be happy as a corn husker fan there at eighteen for team that struggled to get to with four wins the at eighteen and Arkansas in the top twenty five at twenty three Purdue and at twenty five and her med words at Arizona state in at twenty six there was some those Bronco men than all these BYU goes to Virginia. They're at forty Virginia's at forty BYU's at seventy less miles at Kansas, sixty seven even though you're the bottom of the conference, sixty seven's not bad others. You know, I awoke occurrence develops players. Like, no other that I would programs always been developing players over the years. Are at thirty six Kentucky at thirty five Baylor at thirty four. So and UCLA surprise me. There are UCLA. Yeah. That's a problem. Fifty to one one head over UCLA, Illinois UCLA got some work to do. Here's one more piece of that real quick when you look at the national rankings, and I'm very very closely watching three four five three four and five are three programs from two different leagues that live in one state that live on kids from one state am three Oklahoma four Texas five those battles for the kids from Texas are just absolute fire right now. Like that. I mean, those three coaches and JIMBO and Lincoln Riley, Tom Herman are are sitting these living rooms of the top kids from Texas, and there are so many it is an incredible three team battle right now with all due respect to Texas Tech or TCU or Baylor or Houston or Oklahoma state or any of those other schools that will that need and have to live in the state of Texas for kids. Am oh, you and Texas are owning owning that state right now and. To sit at three or four and five when it was all said and done. It's just that's just that's what it's going to look like for the next several years. Yeah. If you're wrote Ryan day, if you're Ryan day, and you know, you're sixteen and Haskins has gone tell transferred its Justin feels Justin field to his right there. But Trevor Lawrence last year's the top guy coming out moves on. He's got to be the difference maker Michigan's at eight you're at sixteen. It's time for Michigan to start getting it done as well. And take advantage of the situation. Erin where Ohio State stand a little bit. But if Justin field to spectacular they can overcome this class being not as good as passed classes with urban Meyer, and he is eligible immediately.

And you get and I loved it. You know, I love this melon. I get hockey hockey now, live hockey, SPF hockey. No ESPN plus has hockey as Mike as jets faced the Buffalo Sabres at three o'clock eastern wrong. Jets Mikey us or a Winnipeg Jets at buffalo, three o'clock eastern time. Let me say one other. I gotta get my hockey thing in where I can. And since I'm currently at the Mike and talking hockey. I was in like, I'm I've kind of become enthralled with the team that we have on every time they play here in Charlotte. The Carolina Hurricanes because they're good and they're young and they're exciting. And they've they're they're they're fast in there. And they're like hard charging towards the playoff spot. They haven't had in like a decade. So but they're playing really good hockey. So the other night two nights ago, and I'm watching them play buffalo, and they go to overtime now in my life of everything I have to worry about and think about and cover between the SEC and the rest of college sports and NFL and NBA in MLB like hockey's one of my favorite sports on the planet. But I just don't ever really get a chance to watch it. So they went to overtime. And if you have not spent just the five minutes it takes to watch three on three overtime hockey. Oh my goodness. Like, I mean, it's fantastic. Like, I haven't really sat and watched three three overtime hockey. That's on me. I just haven't had find the time to do it Melman even you who hates hockey K. Hey, hey, hockey. I say, hey, don't hate. They'll say, okay. Who who? Dislike I love playoff. Okay. Good. That's still ally. But that's good. Not okay. Fine. Good. The three on three is ridiculously fun. I'm just going to say that you get breakaways one on one. It's all over the place trying enough fine. Let's go big. Yes. No typing. He is the most fascinating intriguing player in the history of the NFL draft. He's got the answers who you should take who you shouldn't take strappy Mel kiper junior. Latest Mel kiper junior NFL draft board. Big board of wide receiver when he goes five to one dollars go. Well, I would say that. But then you usually start like thirty five to one and you list off more than. No, no, no. No. No. No, no. Let's go five to one really knew. Why break tradition? I got a couple of five eight five if you're feeling free. You always do. That's why it's easier to start at five. All right, if repealing frisky and you want to start at one that your calls that we'll go five five eight five be I'll go first Harry McLaren wide receiver Ohio State, five eight depot, Samuel wide receiver, South Carolina. It's it's real wide receivers. I'll stop saying wide receiver and it but not her father. Paris Campbell, Ohio State, so to buckeyes McLaren who has fast explosive at the great senior bowl Paris Campbell. Who was steady showed great improvement. I thought over the last two seasons. I those two kind of I for that fifth spot along with deebo who had a great senior bowl week, you know, deebo Samuel very, well, Dr of deebo. Yeah. So those are the three guys in contention for the fifth spot to buckeyes and a game. Cock, but ultimately Peres Campbell got your fist fund. Yes. He hears. There's no little letter next to his name. Okay. Right. How about your number four receiver on the big board? Well, we said Herm Edwards friend Herm Edwards got two quarterbacks, but they won't have Nikial Harry to throw to and he'll Harry an inviting target six four change. He's not a guy. I think we're going to be at the combine. Sorry, I don't know about a straight line speed. It'll be interesting to see, but he's more of an all schon Jeffery alshon, Jeffery tight that big body guy that power forward type who's going to be in a lot of contested situations. Like Jeffrey he made big plays down the fee. Field. He's adept at securing the grab in very tight coverage as I said, so all those things played if he runs a little better than expected in terms of forty he could sneak into the late first round, but I'll say for Campbell Samuel McLaren. They're all seconds. I'll say to kill Harry late first early second. All right. So we're clearly into the first round at this point as we move forward number three wide receiver de que Metcalf. Ohio's ole miss, and they'll get all the buckeyes. We've got a couple rebels from old missing here, but we'll start with decay Metcalf. Mcshea got him going to the Baltimore Ravens? And the first round. I believed that is at pick number twenty two I had AJ Brown going there. So he believed agreed to old miss players K Metcalf. Yeah. You think about the bloodlines with his father you think about being six four to thirty six three six four to thirty matchup problem coming off the injuries average over twenty one yards. Catch a he's a guy who gives you that big playability. I didn't see him always dominate and take over and then they had other options and Todd. Reference the Alabama game as one it really got his attention. Yeah. Yeah. I think if he tests well, if he's a guy that people looked at it and say, hey, we can roll the dice on this third year sophomore that he's got big time potential once he puts it all together. He could go certainly in that mid to late first round area de que Metcalf. Number three ole miss how about number two number twos. And other ole miss I reference the two buckeyes to rebels AJ Brown. AJ Brown has the hands. He's got that Jarvis Landry type size. He's more of a slot guy run after the catch ability. You gotta like a little more attention to detail. I think you look at him becoming like say that guy similar Landry with a second round pick at LSU the same. Your Odell Beckham went top fifteen in the first round. I think AJ Brown is in the first round mix. I don't think Todd had him in the first I did. So I think we're all safe. But I think mid to late first round the pending all workouts for both medcalf and AJ Brown. All right number one receiver on the big board today. NFL? You don't have to be six three to thirty. You not to be six foot two five you can be five nine and change about a one sixty five to one seventy as its marquees Hollywood Brown out of Oklahoma heat the fines of big play guy. I mean, so many plays down the field for Mayfield and Murray can take a short pass and turned into a sixty yard touchdown. I think you're going to look at a guy who's going to be the first receiver off the board. I think he goes somewhere Dari between fifteen and twenty five maybe top twelve if he tests off the charts. I'll go marquees Hollywood Brown Oklahoma cut number one wide receiver in love at that speed. All they missed that speed and the Orange Bowl against Alabama. All right, Mark. He's Brown AJ Brown or relation de came Metcalf. Nikiel Harry Peres Campbell. Honorable mention number five five d MO Samuel five. Be Terry MacLaurin your wide receiver big board. Perhaps somebody will have a question about that more something else. Drafter late it. I know. This the is gonna start ringing off the hook.

I forget on a Friday. We have four winners for this week because we had to today will to more on Thursday all news, retweets us or like us or take advantage of any of our sponsors like one hundred flowers dot com. Big showtime. I Ross we talked about round one on Fridays podcasts. Let's dive into day to day. Three your thoughts. Your takeaway 's Josh Rosen, etc. From the second and third days of the draft. Well, yeah, I mean that ultimately Bri is the biggest news is the Josh Rosen trade because we were curious as to whether or not that would go down. I thought it would it did Rosen now a member of the Miami Dolphins I pretty much love and I'll get to them because I'm going to do a quick team by team thoughts. And then we'll break down the draft in further detail on the fantasy feast with Evan Silva from fantasy perspective I'm going to have Kyle crabs on from the draft network tomorrow. He also post that hilarious video of me interviewing the dolphins fan at the draft. I think a lot of you hopefully saw I retweeted it at Ross Tucker and fell, and he'll he's going to give us some of the. Drafts of teams you really liked and some of the drafts. He really didn't. I'm gonna give you my quick thoughts momentarily. But first I wanna make sure we talk about the Josh Rosen traded a little bit. I think all in all for the cardinals to get a second round pick. Even though it was the third to last pick in the second round and to get a fifth round pick. I don't know. I don't know. You know what? It's about what I thought they'd get really at best at that point at best. So I guess I'm fine with what the cardinals got in return for it. I think it just makes perfect sense for the dolphins. I mean, the dolphins to be a forty eight to trade down to sixty two with the saints and be able to get next year. Second round pick that is huge huge. And then still get Josh Rosen. I mean that to me is a great trade by them. Great trade, and it gives them another bite the apple right? I mean, they don't have a franchise quarterback. Let's give Rosen this year to see you the franchise quarterback if he can unbelievable. They got they got him on the cheap from both draft choice compensation and monetarily if he can't then they're right back at it. Maybe the drafting the top quarterback number one overall next year Rosen has his chance it's not a perfect opportunity. You know that they don't have a great team and Miami. But a lot of opportunities in life, and in the NFL aren't great. You gotta make the most of it. So I like that man meeting these guys and talking to them really enjoy talking with de que Metcalf. Angry Williams, I started to like feel for them Bri like as they were just still in the draft still hadn't gotten taken yet still hadn't gotten taken yet. I think that the guy. Guys need to really really make sure that they're like a top twenty pick. If you're going to come to the draft. I mean, maybe those guys would say, they don't regret it. Maybe they're glad they came. They had a cool experience with their family. But they just can't tell me there's no way they can tell me that they enjoyed sitting there for whatever it was four or five hours that night. There's just no way. I just don't believe that that they enjoyed sitting there four or five hours Thursday night, no way. And so I think that's something to really keep in mind for those young men. And then the other two quarterbacks of note, I think because they went on day two drew lock. I liked the Broncos getting lock where they did it forty two. Because now if Laco plays great, well, then maybe lock can wait two or three years like Aaron Rodgers if flacco plays poorly, then maybe lock even gets the second half of this year to show what he can. Do will Greer? I think is a little bit of Cam Newton insurance and also sort of a better backup. They probably think than Taylor heineke and Kyle Allen, you know, a little bit more. It's interesting by the way, Kyle Allen. And we'll Greer or the two quarterbacks of the first US army bowl. I ever did. Those two kids were two of the quarterbacks on I think they're on the same team. And now here they are on the same team again that was when they were midway through their senior high school now, they're both NFL players. I think career it was five years Cowan for pretty crazy. Anyway, let's get into the tuck stakes team by team team up. All right. Well, how do you want to do this? You wanna go division? No, alphabetical alphabetic. You want me to do it? Because you can't figure it out. Well, I was ready to go division by division. That's what I had pulled up. So let's start and go alphabetical. Let's let's this will be fun to see if you can figure this out. Two teams and start with an A the Zona and then Atlanta. Okay. Which one should I start with Arizona comes before it Lanta. There you go because ours before tea, right awesome. Yeah. Totally totally. Yeah. Yeah. So I actually really liked the cardinals draft the Kyle Murray, then we've talked about ad nauseam. So I won't even get into that part of it. Obviously, they think he is a truly difference making player in a major way and much better than Rosen. Otherwise, they would have just stayed with Rosen and gone ahead. And. Drought. Joey Bosa Nick Bosa or Quinton Williams of the number one pick say think calamari significantly better. But at thirty three they got Byron Murphy who allowed people thought was the best corner in the draft sixty two Andy Isabella to give Carla Murray a weapon, he's got serious speed. For a slot guy. Zack Allan is a versatile. D N can play D N N rush from the inside. I like Zach a lot Hakeem Butler in the fourth round, you guys know from my guy Greg Cosell how much that he liked him. And Indiana Thompson and the fifth round was another guy. Alabama underclassmen less squirrelly. He can make some plays. And then even Lamont galley ARD from Georgia. I'm not even sure I say his name, but he's another guy that I think has a chance to to get some playing time at some point at center for them. So I like the cardinals draft. All right. Let's go to the Atlanta Falcons. All align. Mean clear focus for them Lindstrom mcgarry in the first round. We kind of already talked about both of those picks. They obviously wanted to get tougher and more physical. And that's exactly what they did. Kendall Sheffield is a physical testing free couture's pick pack which hurt him. John Kaminsky detained was a madman at the D two level had like a million sacks those guys translate. Well, like elite rushers at lower levels usually have success in the NFL and then Quadri Allston is a hammerhead at running back member they lost heaven Coleman. So I like having Quadri all sin to be the hammerhead then at running back. In addition to devante Freeman. I onto the bees Baltimore. So I can't say this for every team. But I really do like what the ravens did. Right. I mean, number one marquees Brown. We talked about that. But then Jalen Ferguson from LA tech. I did a Louisiana tech game. All that guy. Did kind of like Kaminski point was lead college football set. The all time college football record for sacks. No big deal. All time college football record for sacks miles boykin has a lot of ability member. He was Josh Norris favourite on the college draft podcast last week. Justin hill has crazy combine numbers Dalen MAC friend, and I talked about him on the college draft podcast for years. He was a highly touted recruit and then trace McSorley at the six round at Penn State. You guys know I follow Penn State pretty closely being able to have a guy that I think can do a lot of the same things that Lamar Jackson does. So Lamar Jackson gets hurt. I wouldn't be surprised if they threw in trace McSorley and a game. My guess is he'll be the. Third quarterback and play special teams. But then they'll have the ability to throw him in there. If if something happens to Lamar Jackson, which is very possible with all the shots. He took last year. Buffalo Bills are next. So talked about it and Oliver already Cody four in the second round is a bad bad, dude. I love the way he plays football. I think he probably ended up starting at right guard instead of Spencer long, that's my guest. Devon single Terry is like a younger Leshan McCoy. He the first guy never tackles him. And Dawson Knox is a lot of ability as a tight end just never really had to production and they needed a young developmental tight end behind Tyler Kroft. So like all of those picks for them. I next up. It's Carolina Panthers. So we mentioned we'll Greer. I talked about him Brian burns. They wanted an edge rusher. Greg little is really going to be the main focus of this draft for them other. Than burns in Greer. Greg little was a five star recruit highly highly touted has tremendous physical -bility. It's weird. Like a lot of these ole miss guys unbelievable, physical building. But never really put it all together. Ties people question his work ethic. You know, it just come to easily for him. I think high school even college be curious to see what the Panthers can get out of him because he's there are many guys with his size. Damn. Keep going next team. He okay there. I had to sneeze. You see the video of Quinn and Williams sneezing and saying he said. Who didn't Williams the jets number three overall pick was getting everybody. Somebody he sneaked and said, God bless you. Thank you. Yes. I. Neither way speaking of the video of you interviewing the dolphins fan. Yeah. Yeah. Many hits that or how many of us that had last? I checked it was like four hundred thousand right. Yeah. I checked yesterday. So it was over three hundred thousand that was very impressive. Yeah. Owed funny. Yeah. A lot of them were from. After Kyle crabs posted, right? His more than than the design Canada. Or my me posing. He does a bunch of dolphin stinks. He's a huge dolphins fan. So it went viral with all the dolphins fans. That's what happened. Okay. All right. Let's talk about the Chicago Bears. David Montgomery and the third round. They needed a bang or running back. He's got some awesome videos. Awesome videos of just bouncing off people. So he's a good compliment. I feel like to the little scat BAC that we all love, and then Riley Ridley Calvin ridley's younger, brother. I think was another pretty good. Pretty good pickup. Just adding to the arsenal. I didn't really feel like they needed a wide receiver there in Chicago. But you know, Kevin whites gone. So maybe they felt like they needed a number four receiver because they don't want to just be throwing the ball every play. Two. Tariq cohen. So I'm fine with it. I also think this Bry you almost have to look at it and say that he is like Khalil Mack was their first and second round pick. And I think they're pretty happy with their first and second round pick. Name Khalil Mack. Cincinnati bengals. Joan Williams we talked about I love after that. True samples like a blocking tight end in the second round. No. Thank you Germain. Pratt from NC state. Okay. Ryan Finley NC state is like a poor man's Andy Dalton okay Renault. Wren was kind of up and down. Michael Jordan has them ability ride. The Anderson coming off the surgeries to backup Joe mixing his former teammate. Yeah. I go in with the Bengals. About the Cleveland Browns. Well, their first round pick was oh Beckham junior. You probably heard of him. That's an IOU for. I Trump pick. You might want to hold onto that one. That's Lamborghini fifty five thousand two hundred how might wanna hold onto that one. Do you do the reference sprite there? I don't know. Tell me dumb and dumber. I've seen the movie one hundred times. I don't remember that where they spend all the money. Yeah. And then the guy comes with the gun, and he's like where what what is this because the instead of the briefcase being full of money the briefcases full of. Yes. Yes. He's like, sir. Those are used that's as good as money and he pulls out to one he's like Lamborghini tour of two thousand dollars my one hold onto that one. So Oto Beckham junior's first round pick my one hold onto that one. That's a pretty good one other than that, greedy Williams fell bunch. So they took him to get that height and speed at the corner position. Mac Wilson's another guy that I guess fell more than people thought he would after kind of a disappointing second half of the year. So I don't know. I mean this draft is mainly about owed L. Let's be honest. Let's talk about the Dallas Cowboys next and their draft is mainly about Amari Cooper. But tristen hill they like to add guys at D tackle tristen hill from central Florida. A lot of people liked him. They got a couple of Miami. Guys. I liked in Michael Jackson and Joe Jackson and counter McGovern from Penn State can play both center or guard. And I think he's going to give county Williams or run for his money at left guard. I really do. And then also be the backup center behind Travis Frederick kinda McGovern started from day one for Penn State as a true freshman. He's pretty impressive. He's like six five and a half three twenty moves pretty well. So I thought that was a salad pick. But again, Amari Cooper is there, dude. The Denver Broncos really like this draft Bry you trade down and you get the Steelers to this year. And you also got a three. Next year. And then you use that to get you got Noah fan who start at tight end for them. Dalton reisner who I think will start at right tackle for them, or at least somewhere. And then you still get drew lock which we talked about and even dream aunt Joan's. I feel like is a pretty good interior rusher which everybody needs. The Detroit Lions are up next. So I love Hopkinson Gilani to vibe you guys. Remember when I had Dane Brookler on recently. And we talked about guys he was higher than other people. He said why? Well, evidently, those are the people did not include map Patricia and the lions who took him at number forty three. That's how much they liked them. Then their next few picks were all like solid multi year starters who there's kind of one little flaw will hair a safety BC Austin, Bryant, Diene, Clemson Amani. Oh ru warrior, a cornerback? Penn state. The Green Bay Packers talked about their first rounders. I really liked some of their other picks. They wanted to get interior offensive linemen. People would not have thought. It was crazy if they took L Jackson Jenkins in the first round late in round one. If he had gone Jay stern burger was a great Cosell favored at tight end. And even could our home in from Toledo. I did a Toledo game last year. He's a walk on at Toledo by six one one ninety tough kid runs. Well, I liked that. He Sten Texans. Yeah. Not so much. I mean, we already talked about Titus Howard. We'll see if Lonnie Johnson pays off for them. I think max Scharping has a better chance to start for them and Titus Howard MAC Scharping from northern Illinois. The other guys. Yeah. Not not in Amer to with the the Houston draft. The Indianapolis Colts volume. I love rocky sin in the second round. Ben Bonna Agoo the edge rusher. Peres campbell. They got a speed receiver Bobbio correctly and off the ball linebacker to go with. Dairies Leonard then Willis from Michigan state and tell from USC are both guys that can play on special teams. They had a lot of volume. And I think I think they got at least four guys. Yes. In Bonn Agoo Campbell. And ochre wreck you to help them this year. Jacksonville jaguars. You know for them. They get Juwan Taylor. I know there's some curiosity about his knee Bri. But to get you want Taylor where people thought that they were gonna take them number seven overall at thirty five. They basically get a guy at seven and Josh Allen, nobody thought would be there. And they got the guy at thirty five. Everybody thought they were gonna get at seven. That's pretty good. Kansas City Chiefs. So Meco hard minutes. Second round pry that is a clear indicator that they're going to move on from Thiry kill. I don't know when or how that happens, but miekel Hartman other than Hollywood Brown was probably the closest thing to Tyree kill in this draft, which is kind of telegraphs that the chiefs. No that tyreek hill is not gonna play football for them this year, and they need to speed guy. And then Thornhill was a pretty highly rated safety too. LA chargers, Jerry, I loved to Lesko their GM. I just feel like he nails the draft. Jerry tiller of Notre Dame could player to position in need. I like getting Sierra. I think he'll start next to when James as more of a cover guy. Even drew tranquil at linebacker from Notre Dame in eastern stick from North Dakota state. I thought were good picks. The LA Rams. So rap is a good pick. And that some people thought he was the tap safety hill kind of fill the lamarcus Joyner role. They got him at the end of round two and they needed to come away with running back they needed to. And they get that guy in Darrell Henderson from Memphis next up. It's the Miami Dolphins. So we talked about Wilkins and obviously Josh Rosen. But to also get deeter from Wisconsin, that's a personal favorite of mine. Michael deeter from Wisconsin, fourteen starts at three different positions. So he was jack-of-all-trades, but never really allow. How to master any? And now he will now hopefully, well who can bursts Tilleke. But I think if you just keep at one spot he could be really good. Minnesota vikings. So the Vikings needed all linemen, and they got him in bradberry and Druce Amiya from Oklahoma. But then not only that to be able to get a guy like Irv Smith at pick fifty. Some people thought Irv Smith might go late in round one. So I thought that was pretty good value. I don't know about this Alexander Madison guy running back. I know very little Alexander Madison third round. I gotta. I got I gotta ask. Maybe I'll ask Kyle crabs about him tomorrow on the college draft podcast New England Patriots. Love winna, vich and Damian Harris. And even the Arkansas oh linemen in the West Virginia alignment, these are just like textbook patriot pigs, but especially John Williams from vandy winna vich from Michigan Damian Harris from Alabama. They're just football player. They're not testing freaks or anything. They're just really smart tough four year players actually all of them, which I think was interesting the more mature ready to play. Now. I who DAT stock about saints. Well, saints traded up again Bri mortgaging the future again next year, second round pick to get Eric McCoy. But after Unger retired. They really did not want to be left holding the bag and then Chauncey Gardiner Johnson in the fourth round was a talented guy who I guess turned off a lot of teams with whatever he did in the pre draft process in those interviews and New York Giants no much to talk about because we talked about all. Three of their first round picks other than that whole Shane Jimenez is a guy that can rush the passing from ODU Julian loves a salad corner. I felt like and then Ballantyne the kid from Washburn ended up getting shot that night. It looks like he's going to be okay. But his teammate passed away very very sad situation. New york. Jets so polite and Adoga are the key here polite had a great year for Florida, but like Gardner Johnson terms. Some teams off during the pre-draft process and adobe from headed really nice senior bowl gives them a chance to develop and be your next your next tackle, maybe after Beecham. The Oakland Raiders. So we talked about their first round picks. After that, though. I really like what they did Trayvon Molin from Clemson is a good player. Max Crosby eastern Michigan. I did one of his games last year against army. His film was good even foster Moreau and hundred Renfro later in the draft our guys that played for years at power five schools. I think we'll be able to contribute next step. We've got the Philadelphia Eagles miles. Sanders was a huge need at running back from Penn State or Sega Whiteside actually reminds me of alshon Jeffery lot. And then sheriff Miller has some Michael Bennett type skills in terms of his physical ability and then Thorson is a developmental quarterback. Pittsburgh steelers. We talked about moving up for Devon Bush. You know, who I really liked their draft. After that pry, I mean Sutton Smith those how to rush the passer get him off the edge is one of their three four outside backers. Benny Snell is kind of a hammerhead running back that you know, we'll play well in Pittsburgh and their two third round picks Deontay Johnson from Toledo one of the first picks in the third round. I did it Toledo game last year against Nevada. He can play man I'm telling you he can play. He not many guys leave Toledo early. He did. And rightfully so. And even Justin lean for Michigan state is pretty darn good as well. Speaking of pretty darn good. It's Kentucky Derby weekend, isn't it price? Yeah. It is kid Tukhy derby weekend.

NBA play-offs NHL playoffs. Lots and lots to get into especially the second round of the NBA playoffs podcast. One is the code over a bed. Online dot AG. Your online sportsbook experts. All right. Let's get back to the San Francisco forty Niners. Do Bo I like deebo Samuel? He was terrific in college. People were just scared by the hamstring issues a little bit, and then Jalen Hurd, I think will be like a a movable chess piece for Kyle Shanahan Seattle Seahawks. They ended up having so much volume. You gotta love decay Metcalf with the sixty four th pick last pick in the second round that kid had to wait a long time. I talked about that and the big show, and I don't know a whole lot about a lot of the other guys. They got DeMarcus Christmas is pretty good. Ben Burke, Irvine was a local favourite from U dub. So but they went volume like they like to do Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So people like their draft. You know, they went heavy in the secondary. And they needed to Sean punting from central Michigan Jamelddine from Auburn. Mike Edwards from Kentucky. They were not messing around. They know that that's an area where they need to get better. Tennessee titans. AJ Brown goes ahead of decay Metcalf. He has a chance to find a role right away. As does Nate Davis to guard from Charlotte. He'll probably be the right guard their opposite Sappho they can have a nasty run game. But those two guys at guard. I mean, those are people mover staff old and Nate Davis Amani Khokar out of Iowa might fill a role and even Andrea Walker. I was surprised the Andre Walker as an edge rusher been going until the fifth round. And finally, the Washington Redskins Terry MacLaurin, they absolutely needed a wide receiver. They got him. Maclaurin was a favourite of a lot of people's toward up at the senior bowl. He and Haskins. Obviously have that report. And then Bryce love I thought was an interesting pick Bri for them to take a guy coming off the tornadoes yell, but if he comes out a year ago, he's first round maybe second round. And I think that the Redskins just thought that was value. You know, even if it's a redshirt year. Let's go for a guy with big upside. So I'm not mad at him for that makes perfect sense. And that'll do it for a monster Monday edition of the Ross Tucker football podcast. Let's get to some emails later on the week. We'll talk to Andrew for Wednesday's show.

"You'll Elliott's he's got an open to the races can catch him it's so easy to be a little something special great player menace to it is October eleventh Friday estate and what you really have watched over the last seven years transform into one of the best groups in the country to do that I had to empower I had to convince warm the culture in that room from what it was which was the leading receiver had fourteen catches the year before we got there into what you're watching today at Ohio it's easy to inspire players to change because they want to experience success while the situation Ohio state when Urban Meyer came in they had already one of my former players Buckeye great NFL Super Bowl starter with the Carolina Panthers Philly Brown coming in a minute great great interview give you a background on Philly Brown and what he meant to me and our program and really what he meant to the Buckeyes that you watched bye week for the buckeyes couple couple decent games in the mid West but we have a very special episode here and really fortunate and excited to welcome especially in transition with a new staff coming in and we were fortunate to have a phenomenal foundation built by Jim Tressel and so it was our job to just enhance and improve it nick situation where new coach comes in and doesn't need to just absolutely rewrite every detail the program because it was already a solid program and so what that created was one of the leaders probably the best player to do it my way to do it our way and had to get him to buy in so that he could permeate touched them they called it a clown show it was it was embarrassing to the history and tradition that was the Ohio state receiver group and so is about trying to transfer day and this is going to speak on a very general level because this is this goes for any program that's trying to improve try to change the culture the biggest thing you see Ryan talking about my group specifically as a leader of a group I had to go into what would it was coined the time by the media by Urban Meyer and really by anyone there was a it was a mess but those players that were there still had experienced success two years earlier under Jim Tressel so it wasn't a complete implosion has that had apprehension because they had seen a different way to succeed and so this new coaching staff comes in with different philosophies different ways of doing things and they we had to get them to aim at a very very intelligent level and so excited to him on the show just before before we get to the interview with with Philly I kind of want to but variance success though they were coming off a season where they only won six games and there was a lot of turmoil I mean that was that was kind of understood as just a transition year and try to take it to another level and that's obviously what urban did and what happens is you go into a program and that program has not had success is insight for for everyone to jump into the mind of Philly Brown do you ever find yourself wishing that you could make some extra cash with your NFL knowledge at my bookie the time catching up with Philly and he and I talked quite a bit but it was good to have mon- he's he's one of the smartest players I've been around one of the smartest players I've coached and he really understands the Filly Brown buckeye great former NFL player and an all around conscientious in very intelligent football mind which is why fairly did you really have to get buy in and really ultimately you have to incite the change you have to you have to get that to happen and to make it happen they want to make your dream come true this season right now all players are invited to play in the free fifty thousand dollars survivor contest winner-takes-all contest starts October eighth and closes receive a free entry into the contest today between football season the major league baseball playoffs and the start of NBA NHL seasons.

coming to you with I wanna I wanNA know because you and I've talked about and I was telling stories earlier about how even once you were playing for the panthers getting Shit Getting Ready for the playoffs I mean you still would face and and enhance it even more and then watched it as it continued when Peres Campbell and Terry maclaurin Johnny Dixon and those guys were leaders how they enhanced even more and now you're watching guys like K J hill you watch it debt by in throughout the group and it took about a year to do it but by about twenty thirteen it really took off in and I credit philly brown with being the Cadillac and probably not as talented as a Marshon lattimore or someone like that but just talked to me about the advantages of that coming from a professional wide receiver standpoint honestly if you're the kind of guy who likes to bet a little to win a lot try poor lay for instance if you like a couple of big favorites this week par laser perfect because they let you bet multiple games together really just get his thoughts on on the twenty thousand nine Ohio State Buckeyes his time in the NFL experienced developing and Urban Meyer's program and just get hit czar to a defensive back to a corner specifically not having to play press every every snap and the person I think of on the big stage Josh Norman who can play his own corner exactly and that's the time we weren't always the most consistent team oh every week so I had to check in with somebody who I knew who will give me the real info not so much trash talking locker room that I needed to know what I was getting myself into you had to make sure we're going to be backed up me and want to know what the game plan looked like what's what's what's the outcome GonNa be you've always been very involved I was about to tell you why I was always involved I love him I think honestly there's the best team since two thousand fifteen all around I agree and I think that the biggest change is the scheme don't just sit on the sidelines get in the game with my bookie and if you join right now my bookie will double your first deposit use Promo Code Menace Emmy NACE too says being a guy that has seen a multitude of defenses and when against a number of the defensive backs what do you think the advantages the real real I got you well I well here's what I really WanNa know what you think of this this new Ohio state this year college quarterback is down their mobile apps and everybody's got their that everybody has their back to the quarterback so even if we are covering great quarterbacks running their sentence I don't WanNa say it's easier to play zone but it's simpler right you know what I mean plan Manson man coverage on anybody is a tough job you know what I mean that's zone good to have you on other than the fact that you played for me and we know each other really well but thanks for coming on man not a problem at all not a problem at I wanna get into this I really ah the moral story right even even with first second round corners they if there's a struggle in man coverage that would tell you that much better in zone right exactly being dubbed the zone defense that they turned into this coverage read is covered shoe where everybody has their eyes on the quarterback at all times and everything in front of you is the best thing that in the last couple of years exactly well I'm with you so tell me tell me what you think about the offense specifically and in just in fields and what he's doing in his first year they've they at least have the skill and the talented corner to go play man every now and then so they're not just always zone but they give them that relief that they've never had we could've could've done this is honestly the sole reason to me of why the defense is better because we changed from Manson's all no doubt and that was that was going to be one of my questions because they're they're just not the same anymore known you have helped there's help everywhere there's help when you're inside it may not be helping me out but there's helps you always Jay layers to your health when you're in his own right back right back you have one responsibility it's not like man where you had to cover thing about these athletic quarterbacks is there's definitely a possibility for a carry over into the NFL but it's just it's it's so rare and you played with one Guy Cam Newton who's an athletic guy that has carried change I think the defense absolutely the offense the offense has always been offense at the issue for us the issue for us has always been we're going to be able to stop anybody and he has a good pro quarterback that that's the pro style quarterback I think builds is more of a more of a quarterback that you would want to college because he can extend over really well Michael Vick there's there's other ones that it does carry over but that's such a rarity you know it is rare it is honestly it's all about it's all about systems like Haskins was an unbelievable college quarterback but you see when he got brusher would he did he couldn't run and then end the year they started making them Ron a little more the ravens are going right now with my Jackson just you have to mold your offense to your franchise player or the word in highlight their skill set right burson the entire field but end the day they're playing man that's you're you're playing zone I can play an Arian whoever comes in beat the you know what's funny is in your your you'll remember this you'll remember this from your time at Ohio state I always used to tell you guys when when Braxton areas who I got and it's a lot more simpler which why most teams have more success plan zone the man 'cause in on top of that not saying Ohio State has an ad Oh yeah and then even score and it'd be hard as a coach tell me did something wrong so tell me exactly let them do what they do best don't don't try to make them be somebody that they are like just 'cause they're not a pocket quarterback don't mean they're not a good quarterback in Miller is the quarterback there's no such thing as a run off route or a dead route because Y- he'll break your pocket and find you better be you better be prepared it all which was the biggest thing that helped us as a team playing man to man it's not the best thing to do in college especially when every among other schools once you get to the NFL of Ohio state you know wait definitely played the being a it has responsibilities and then as molly Minos is different no doubt it's always known it's all about the it's all about being disciplined every great zone corner can't play Manson Man Lake you can run these I don't WanNa like breakfast but he's a quarterback that can literally scored any moment because you know what I mean exact good absolutely crazy blocker on normally two three bucks amber teams and they know that Kosovo guys honestly buckler always playing ball they know that feel feel with different animal to the to the offense he brings something to every college quarterback needs and he brings mobility people don't understand it doesn't it doesn't it doesn't happen like been shell countless amount of people who have been great covered three corners and then they go to a game where playing man and you just lose there's the play man 'cause they have is just it's not great it's not a great game for college zones what is literally the best thing they could have done that kind of goes back to the against the south coast today today we're GonNa win that college quarterback in Iran are literally the best college quarterback yet it may not they might they may not transfer over and be the best we're going inside guy that that went undrafted then also you're starting in the super bowl making big plays you're all over the field Oliver sportscenter and then a couple years later you get traded to buffalo in it's like what I here's what I think people would want to know and I'm kind of curious we've talked about it a little bit but talk to me about being in Ohio State Buckeye in an NFL locker room like what's what's the percent it's like to be an NFL athlete and and really how it works and I had a long conversation with Braxton Miller probably three weeks ago about it just talked to me about the politics and the NFL. I mean shoot you it doesn't matter how good your corners are it's it's tough to say anybody you know one of the biggest things I've seen it doesn't matter and your name is forget drafted into Garoppolo Tom Brady they drafted Aaron Rodgers with Parv at quarterback I mean teams are all that kid recruit I would tell him to take his it's funny I just was talking to one I would literally say just taking the time with the process you know what I mean and GonNa do what you know what I mean and they're going to even if they even if they think that you could be the greatest player in the world you just have to know that he's looking to get better constantly and serious when they tell you hit the business they don't WanNa go younger they wanted to they want that you have to adjust now so I would say take your time whereabout open all doors give everybody a chance because you never know what fits you best go into schools like Ohio Estate Georgia Alabama that's not always the best thing to do yeah it's cool but you know it may not fit you you may be better at a at a school like you know oh you everybody talks about college and you know you always on a team with a player wants for university that you're playing this week always comment you know friends and wagers or that's fine that's a fact I was telling somebody yesterday jim how very not we will call option to the right and he was his last trash-talk contents about who who's GonNa listen if you ask me Ohio State Bama old the most weigh in Oh my God you're GonNa play right away Cincinnati if you're gonNA play right away I mean I was telling somebody today you can get to the NFL from anywhere you can ball right simple that if you I think about more than just football because life is so much bigger than just football no matter how long do you play you can play twenty years you still got fifty years ago life to live where I get into the kind of this last rapid-fire thing if you had one piece of advice for either recruit or a current college player even like a young nfl player what piece of advice would you give has it team is always looking to place you somehow they're always looking kid better they're always in opposition so it doesn't matter what you've done in the past a high school kids get get more worried about cloud chasing than actually the the best the best situation exactly I did it at temple is going on in the NFL it's a business at the end of the day I know everybody says that all the time but really at the end of the day it seems all the time all the time what about talk talk to me about advice to occur in college football player I would tell him to work hard talked about was John Simon where he has he he has a lot of talent but he was one of the most dominant D. Lineman in the big ten because of his effort effort that effort the dog the most 'cause they win the most right absolutely so kind of staying on that topic of the NFL because I know people are so intrigued on on in Penn state I I'm not even two hundred in the neighborhood and you know how necessarily in the neighborhood facility whatever system you get into it if a team is willing to both their system to your plan sows you could be successful with us with Carolina camp that's what it was perfect how this one favourite Buckeye player that you've watched on TV after you're done playing like yeah I know who you're talking about all right how about craziest thing that you saw in recruiting thing I saw recruiting they play in fifteen years in a league off your work ethic either guy you know the guy in you played with him you know as well or better than I do the guy that I always talk because I have seen to make the NFL and our workers when it gets leaked they get to the league I mean at the end of the day all of our that's my thing like you never know what these schools have to offer like temples not the biggest school but is bonuses to going to school like that you'll play early and you always have a chance that the NFL they make it make girls girls explore oh all right how about all right now best best player you've ever seen play at Ohio state a lot that gives you three gimmie three Harlow Braxton roby retains like people who are going to work nonstop I was just say it's your work ethic ain't there it needs to get there because you can listen nick answer you're just an instant reaction answer right okay I think favorite moment as a Buckeye go straight games twenty four straight Games gotcha twice in your career if if if I were those those are the rapid questions I got one final question for you and I and this is this is one that people ah whole way then when it comes the bragging rights and the NFL locker room colleges literally all the all the bragging alleged nobody talks about high school nobody else out you know really want to hear about talk to me about the transition early in your career when when Urban Meyer and all of us walked in the door and just talk about that trend it doesn't necessarily get to your head in Gaul with it and then while Har- wherever you go social I got one more question aw you can get in there from anywhere now why not bar early it's almost go state you're gonNA come in with two hundred five year position no Dr and it's it's almost like kids make plays literally really well now I want to do the last thing I want to do is the thing I'm calling the menace minute I'm gonNA rapid fire like five questions that you just give me you versus Bradley Roby One on one in college what was your record give me a win percentage ninety seven so he might have got you think about more than just football that's something that I really didn't do not saying that I would have shown different houses and not one hundred percent with no but I would say take your time and I just let them do what they do best hell an athlete how in Love Them At quarterback pro style quarterback he's a quarterback Deshaun touchdowns and make play yeah within my city but still I had I had alive state Florida state I went to visit a temple also right you honestly and and temple was because it's a big one and you're still paying big time games and it'd be playing in the first as opposed to going to Ohio state you can be the best player in the world and I play to your senior happens all the time so we'll want to challenge be rounds at what as you know the the Oh wait around the temple was way better than Penn state visit depends on like what is this what is this that's that's my the people and they didn't like you know because you know what I sit back and think about it now I'm like that's honestly how would be the coach condition and how that went I didn't like you think nobody wasn't one person fields and they're like job trainer's not the players view really analyzing which I know you have you you you didn't get along specifically with urban or really me that much and then by the end of it that was not the case anymore the thirteen catches my first year my freshman year is fifteen year two when y'all got their sixty sixty five you got kicked out banned from the locker room exactly and I think the coach culture changes the biggest nobody likes you guys at the time the fucking best time there you'll be good do your shit right I think it works and I liked that Dallas hosting the honest evaluation well and ultimately if you really let's just let's just get this together and I think honestly that was a big part winning twenty four twenty twenty four three games because we were you gotta think about it we want everyone six games with the same player that we went over it the following year same players the same exact makes you scared but it makes young guys there's a mess up right the way the way he goes the way Mickey's in the weight room you know what I mean the way you'll head players because the culture chains y'all came in I was about fitness we couldn't even hit the

Pittsburgh steelers fans that his time for another edition of the live Mike as you heard coach Tomlin. So affectionately say he was grateful enough to give us that that great little audio clip at the end of his press conference following the Denver Broncos Pittsburgh steelers twenty six, twenty one steelers victory game. One of the members of the press decided to to cost a little bit accidentally I might add. Coach Tom did want to remind everyone that there was a live hot mic. that. Perhaps should be more worried about tinder perhaps, people wouldn't be in the hot water that they might be today. But anyway it got us a new intro hopefully that sticks maybe maybe we'll play around with it a little bit but show Mike Tomlin for the the new intro anyway is my name is Michael Back, your host of the live Mike Deputy editor of behind the steel curtain dot com and it is another victory Tuesday celebrating another Pittsburgh steelers win. We're going to break down that game a little bit, and then get into a crazy weekend of injuries across the entire NFL and what kind of means for the steelers moving forward, and if any of these big time injuries are really affecting how the steelers and their season will pan out starting off with a game. Obviously the biggest thing going on in this one. The steelers offense align was the biggest question mark. You had some big time injuries across that right side of the offense align and you know what they came up. Huge Kevin. Dotson. What can you say? I there's only one game but how do this guy slipped to the fourth round? He was one of the highest. Pf Run blocking offense of Interior Linemen in all of college football a season ago. And then he comes out and delivers the performance quite like the one he just brought us. It's absolutely mind numbing that he's able to do that. What a performance by Kevin Dotson his first game he gave up exactly zero pressures not one zero pressures and you know the guy that was lined up against him giral Casey. He's coming off five consecutive proble seasons drill Casey's no slouch. He's one of the Best Interior Defensive Linemen football and Kevin Dalton at times. How does way with them? Honestly, I wasn't still high in that matchup going into this game and it was one that I was a little bit concerned about. However after that game, Kevin Dotson all my he might he might have just earned himself a spot on the starting roster. Not to say anything about about Shusaku Sukur for who came into had a solid game from self but once Dave decastro gets healthy. I'm telling you file or struggled a little bit at guard the first two games and looked really good a tackle year ago. Why not flip Dave Decastro on the left side Bump Matt Fowler back to right tackle and all sun. The steelers aren't missing a beat at oftens line and they look great again I know you don't necessarily want to move your all pro pro bowl guard and David Decastro but. Markey's Pouncey and Kevin Dotson showed some great chemistry on that right side side-by-side regardless of the amount of snaps they played now is one of the big factors in this game and all of a sudden the steelers have tons of matchups that they could play with some groups that they could fiddle around with along their offense affront and that's pretty darn exciting. I honestly couldn't be any higher on this offense align than I am right now despite all the injuries they're facing, they're going to get some guys back and note the steelers don't even have to rush Dave decastro back even if he could play next week if he's only around eighty percent, you could still dress but just kind of make him one of the more reserve type Linemen Kinda, relaxing the bench, not push him. All the sudden. YOU'RE A couple of weeks down the Line David Castro's one hundred percent healthy. And you found something and Kevin Dotson Manno Man, this twenty twenty draft class is the gift that keeps on giving. It's only two weeks in but those top three picks coupled with that Minka Fitzpatrick first round pick trade holy all the sudden twenty, twenty draft class. It looks to be one of the best the steelers have had in recent memory that includes 2017, seventeen because. Boy Chase Klay Pool, what a performance from him again that eighty four yard touchdown wasn't absolute beauty an absolute time by. Ben. Rothlisberger. You can check down actually a pretty good breakdown of the play by our own Jeffrey, benedict over and behind the steel curtain dot com he breaks it down frame by frame. Ben. Rothlisberger saw and how that was a touchdown. Before the ball was even snapped. That, play really worked out all the steelers favored, but basically pull not only do in that. He picks up a couple more receptions in the game. And then he went on to have three special teams tackles, which is nothing this launch about he was all the field I believe you only had somewhere in the neighborhood of eleven offense a snap something something like that but. When he was on the field, he made the most of those opportunities beat on offense at being on. Special Teams Chase Klay Pool is buses and he is earning every bit of his spot on this roster and he's going to get more and more playing time season goes. And on top of that, he's going to get more and more targets thrown his way. Honestly if you're a fan of fantasy football like I am I would jump over that and pick up chase Klay pool to my roster right away especially in those dynasty leagues. You want him on your team. Breaking down the rest the steelers, your Ben. Rothlisberger obviously his second game back he's continuing to put stats up on the year. He's over five hundred passing yards, which is mind boggling to games in. If you were to tell me that I would've I would've thought Ben Roethlisberger would show a little bit more rust. He had a couple of sloppy passes but. One has been not had those kind of throws in his game that is just kind of the way. For approaches, the game of football it. Mistakes happen here and there but. Man What a game again for him aside for that interception. Ben. Rothlisberger twenty nine four on three hundred eleven yards two touchdowns again, five touchdowns on the air over five hundred yards. This. What what kit this guy do. It seems like he's never heard this guy hasn't missed a beat. He I think at one stretch who is fourteen for fifteen On fifteen consecutive passes just absolutely outstanding numbers. Honestly each and every week. I have complete faith in Ben, Rothlisberger for here on out the guy standing behind James Connor. He. Had he had definitely had a huge bounce back for him going over one, hundred, six yards. I know most of that was on his fifty nine yard run that ice the game at the end of regulation but his touchdown run, and that series preceding that was a pretty, pretty solid stretcher place for James Connor. When you look at his compatriot in Beni. Snell however Snell fell off the rails after a huge week one which I think is a trend. We might see throughout the year one person taking rains the other person kind of stepping back and. Letting the other guy kind of have a bigger game between those two. I think it's GonNa be roll who gets that game at Benny Snow continues to fumble the ball. He's not going to get these opportunities like James Connor is getting. But he's still in the day only three carries for five yards. Fumble which was a huge costly turnover thankfully, the steelers still escape with victory but that fumble definitely hurt another back that I want to get to though one derek what? Why have the steelers chosen not to run him more in the offense Derek what is proving every single special teams not and that he brings it when he's on the field on offense, steelers are breaking big runs. Bench snow was playing against the giants when he was popping dark what was in the game lead bollocking doing a great job he's one of the best fullbacks in the game might add before I continue. And what does he do when he gets action when the steelers are trying to ice the game at the very end of the game he was off three dudes. James. Connor goes fifty nine yards. I'm telling you Derek what needs to play more it's one of my biggest frustrations with this team right now I know it's a fullback, but this guy he competes at such a high level that. I really don't understand why you don't have him on the field more. He's one of your best competitors. You paid them. I believe top three fullback money in the NFL, for reason, workman in the offense more. Will only improve your running game and you know what? When, when you take a look guys at call us check in San Francisco fullbacks can get involved in the offense to in those screen type plays, which is steelers again struggled with. In. Those type plays we'll routes. Sneaking out of the backfield just straight blocking Derek Walk could be a single man. In the backfield and just block on four receiver type place, it's something the steelers can do and they haven't done yet, which is a little frustrating me. I was hoping Derek what would be featured a little bit more. I would assume he would would be because his performances in week one and two have gone to show that he is he is what they really signed him to be, and he's absolutely deserving being on the field a whole lot more. Flipping things over the receivers I know we already talked about. Chase Klay. Paul who was the second receiver third and reception second in receiving yards might add but the rest of the receiving unit had a pretty. Solid. Day. Ben Spread the ball around. Let me just check your I. I believe it was nine different players came down with the reception. In this one The leading target Deontay Johnson had eight receptions, ninety two yards and a touchdown. He'd a couple brutal drops. I won't put a bow on it. Some rough drops in this when I can remember at least who that really kind of hurt this team. It was quite unfortunate when those plays went down. But other than that two weeks in a row deonte Johnson shakes off shaky weak first-quarter rather to have solid solid, second-half, really solid three quarters to each of the first two games. You you're GONNA want to see that out of a full game from Deontay to really see this offense to reach its full potential but. He he is showing some stuff again, lead he. He now leads the team yardage and he continues to put a big numbers when it comes to target these quarterbacks trust them Deontay. Johnson just needs to keep snapping the ball out of the air. The second leading receiver in terms of receptions one Mr Smith Schuster had an outstanding first half he was hauling in tons of passes. He's getting targets thrown his way like there was no tomorrow. and. He was able to in seven and he picked up forty eight yards. I know it's not the most flashy numbers, forty, eight yards, but Juju. Solid game again, he was all over the field I'm really liking what he's doing this year with Ben Rothlisberger back in the fold it's really kind of opening to see what he can do and really kind of put that twenty, nine, thousand, nine season the rear view mirror. I, you can completely entirely put that game on the that season on the subpar quarterback play kind of poor offense align performance, which you kind of coupled into that quarterback play but. Now we can. Kinda Juju getting back to what he was before that which is exciting of which only leads to great things for this team. The stewards are loaded at receiver again, and if there's two guys that this team absolutely needs to resign Juju Smith Schuster has earned another contract but depre- I know we'll. We'll talk about him a little bit more just a later but bud debris is been a game record. I will get to more on that in a second. Finishing off the receiving core touch on Eric Brown and James Washington Erkki. Braun three receptions I. Believe is four targets, forty three yards as solid outing for him. Again, kind of hope to see him get mixed more on the offense, but the way the ball was spread around. I. Think Eric Lebron's touches will come those red zone targets will come but for right now, Eric Brown is kind of. Kind of melding his way in the offense and has looked good thus far James Washington didn't have as big a day as he didn't week one. But when the ball came his way, he did make the most out of it. Three receptions twenty two yards including one first down up where he absolutely ran over that I can't remember the guy's name Denver one of the rookie defensive backs that James Washington just put a shoulder into country strong as I like to say, just put him on his but picked up the first down. Now, we can flip over the defensive side and the guy that I mentioned earlier but depre- statistically not like a mind popping day technically just one tackle and a sack but man, this guy is laying the hammer that sack fumble that he put on. That he put on to drew lock is one of the more vicious hits that I've seen a really one of the more hard hit sins bud depre- laid out. Matt Moore in the playoffs a few years back. But depre- I said this on twitter during the game who expect it for years in Bud Dupree's career that just two years later, he'd be one of the best pass rushers and football, and that's not even a joke either. When it comes to PF grading their pass rushers number one is Joey Bosa number twos and Tj Awad. It's depre-. Not In grades but pressure I should say. But Pre has been getting to the to the quarterback and he he's been. Making plays in the backfield. Throughout, both of these first Games he's pushing offense alignment backwards I could only expect an even greater week three against a a kind of weak offensive line unit that the Houston Texans are bringing out on the field. This matchup I'm salivating over bud pre. I think this guy is one hundred percent gonNA get double digit sacks this here just a matter of fact that teams can't decide who to double team and they're not gonNA land on Bud depre- being guy that gets a bottle double team, but he's still so saw he's going to end up in the backfield and make those place but decrees been outstanding this year and I can't be anymore excited to see what he can do throughout the rest of the season his compatriot on the other side of him on the the other outside linebacker spot Mr, TJ want three tackles for him but two and a half sacks which. I know you only had two and a half sacks in this game and none in the first game, but still boost them up to the number one spot across the entire NFL for sacks on the season just two games in. Tijuana Awadhi got an interception. Some I believe the highest pass rush stats across the entire NFL. He's. Picked up a number of tackles for loss. He's knocked down a few passes. He's already well on his way to a defensive player of the year type season and I wouldn't be surprised to see him actually take the award home this year another name I want to touch on one Mr Mike Hilton eight tackles and a sack. The Guy was all over the field he was he was applying the pressure like not. In this one might kill had another great game flying all over the Field Mike Hilton is someone to look for as another name that the steelers really should. Really, figure out a way to bring him back for the two thousand, twenty, one season another one of these free agents he had a great game, the two linebackers Devon Bush, and Vince. Williams also had great games. They played both Devon Bush played the entire game on the defensive side of the football Vince Williams playing over eighty six percent of the snaps I. Believe it was, which is a whole lot more than he was playing a season ago. So Vince Williams playing at a much higher rate and he's playing outstandingly well in the run game like we thought and he's he's been applying the pressure in the past game too. So of into Williams, is really kind of developed into a guy that I. didn't give enough credit to this all season, but he is just a big pieces any as anyone on this steelers, defensive? Front. Around things out with Tyson Allahu. Man He is turned back the clock. He's looking like that former first round pick that the Jaguars picked him to be. He has been outstanding this year another sack for him. Is playing in the backfield tackles for loss pushing offense alignment around. Tyson Lalas play has been so good honesty. It's completely leveled levied the loss of von Hargrave the steelers defense is not missed a beat and Tyson Al has absolutely amazing. Lastly I think it should touch on Meka Fitzpatrick who struggled a little bit the first two games, a season tons of. Not mistakes necessarily but passes and defensive pass interferences going his way. He's still making the tackles. Teams are still afraid to throw in his own but not picking up those kinds of stats that he normally does but I'm sure we'll will turn it around. One last thing before we head into the break, here's the sheer amount of defensive pass interference calls that went against the steelers and this one which was crazy I. think there's four defensive pass interference calls on third down which obviously leads to Denver getting first downs in this past game. Vince Williams tweeted something along the lines of we had a two games are two teams in this one game. Obviously that would be in reference to the referee's. Not WanNA. Point fingers at the refs but really in this game, some of those fluffy defensive pass interference calls were Kinda mind. Mind Boggling. Especially when you take in consideration Eric Brown on a fourth in two on a corner out was absolutely mobbed and there was no flag whatsoever which which was awfully surprising in that one. Special teams. Wise quickly touch Chris Boswell. who had a perfect day one for one on field goals three for three on extra points Dustin Colquitt five punts. He's averaging forty one point eight yard average including one that. Bounced out just a yard deep in the end zone, which completely would have changed his average in i. know some people are complaining about them but doesn't Colquitt in my opinion has looked fine thus far for the steelers Ray McLeod he looked to be jitterbug. He's GonNa boss one of these kickoff return for touchdown for sure this year and Deontay Johnson actually did bust one on his own. Penalty blocking the back brought that back but Deontay Johnson again, he he's looking to be an all pro at the punt return spot yet. Again, if he plays all sixteen games stops muffing punts, he'll absolutely do that. He has been electric punt returner thus far. All right. We're going to head into a commercial break really quick here, and when we get back, we'll talk about some of these debilitating injuries that are coming across the entire NFL and what those kind of mean for the Pittsburgh steelers.

Pittsburgh steeler. Fans. Deputy editor, Michael BACK BEHIND STILL DOT com hang out with you on a little bit longer. For the live Mike having fun as always I part you caught that talking about the steelers game against the broncos but. One of the big storylines come across the NFL. At the end of the at the end of the day. That's Sunday. Game Day, was the sheer amount of injuries across the entire, NFL? While, and like I say, well, because it was, it was an insane amount of players and talent that have been lost for the season and some guys are going to have multi week injuries that are going to affect the landscape of the NFL thankfully, the steelers have escaped relatively uninjured other than bumps and bruises knock on wood that continues to happen but. When you look at some of these big names across the front, just just taking into consideration the broncos game, the broncos lost a couple of Defensive Lineman the they'll awesome guys in the secondary No loss was really felt harder than the one of of drew lock. Obviously on the depre- fumble he sprained his AC joint so bad that he is going to be kept out for. The initial reports two to six weeks after the coaches kind of broke it down at sound closer that six week length, which is really tough for the broncos especially when they got to keep pace with the Kansas. City chiefs The Los Angeles chargers who put on a great showing against against Kansas City. And proved to be a viable threat in that AFC west, division and Oakland is still a team that's. GOT TO LOOK OUT FOR DENVER QUICKLY With all these injuries mounting including a torn ACL from court sun, which is kind of a theme to Sunday, which is really unfortunate Really are in just the worst injury situation. Across the NFL right now, you could also say the forty niners are in that spot as well. A team the steelers thankfully. I not thankfully but team, they don't play this year one that teams are going to take advantage of because arguably their best defensive player Nick Bosa Tours ACL Solomon Thomas he tours ACL the other. Pass rusher there for the niners Jimmy Garoppolo getting injured missing time. Tevin Coleman getting injured. He's GonNa. Miss some timer he mo- most or getting injured. He's GonNa. Miss some time. You look at their whole roster it just keeps growing and growing and growing growing. It's just absolutely brutal. And then when you look at all these other twenty sales across the NFL. It really is quite mind boggling. Of course, the name that jumps out right on top SAQUON Barkley. which is just really tough for him. He really was the entire offense of the giants. steelers week one opponent Really can't say enough about Saquon Barkley. He's one of those generational talents that's. Really does pretty much everything well for that team and he is like I said earlier their entire offense. So that's going to be felt big time their. Cooker the. Safety for the colts he tours Achilles hookers have been battling some serious injuries, entire his entire for your career in the NFL he is one of those guys that would be one of the top safeties and football. However, he keeps he keeps having to deal with these really tough injuries that torn Achilles. torn MC L. Hip injuries, ankle injuries you name it. He's really been battling it sterling shepherd another on the giants set GonNa miss some time. Acres. Running back. He's injured. He's GonNa miss some time. Jerry Judy going back to the broncos. That's another guy. It's GonNa. Miss Them Time Anthony Barr David Montgomery Bershad. Perriman. Peres Campbell Davante Adams. Byron Jones the list goes on and on and on. and. I don't know if that has anything to do with the lack of a preseason. Because when you look at star players typically, they aren't playing that much preseason to begin with if it has something to do with playing surface. A lot of these a lot of these hair type injuries did happen on. On artificial turf fields. Now I'm not a doctor or scientist by any means but. When you look at the stats I think it's it's pretty. Overwhelming the amount of those kind of type. Twisting injuries were feet get stuck in Turfan, ACL's and Achilles are popping I it seems to tap more frequently on the artificial turf then it doesn't grass. Not being, said, Portland Son did tear his ACL in Heinz field, which we all know is a real grass playing surface in. Pittsburgh. But. It just doesn't happen with the same frequency. I don't know if there's something behind that. Maybe that's something. We need a dive into but. Just a really tough day across the entire. NFL The ravens, the Ravens even lost their young corner blanking on the name right now but we'll circle back to that. Just is just really one of those days that you kind of remember across the entire league that. Is kind of one of those more infamous days. because. I don't really remember a day when injuries like this really happen. To this caliber of player. And for it to happen at this volume I, it really is sad and one that I can only hope is not a trend that's going to continue the rest of the season. You know going back to twenty nineteen. That was kind of the year the injured quarterback and twenty twenty seems obviously among so many other things but when it comes to injury. So it kind of looks like to be the year of the injured star. Player. which is really tough especially when you're trying to sell the NFL to new audiences. So that's that's one of the more brutal things that is facing the league right now and cycling back to that Ravens, nickel, corner on young tours ACL as well. I know he's there are division rival, but thoughts and prayers go to obviously all all these guys that are bailing these crazy injuries the NFL's a better place when all these guys are in it. So we can only hope that they all get back to you one hundred percent health and can get back on the field as soon as they possibly can. So all of us behind the curtain are pulling for all the all the guys that were injured and really keeping our fingers crossed that it doesn't continue throughout the rest of the season now. Looking at the steelers most immediate schedule the techs in the titans both haven't been hammered too hard with injuries. But. That being said, there are areas that can be exploited especially kind of in the Texans Front. One of the big name injuries for the Houston Texans right now will fuller battling a hamstring injury not really sure what his status is going to be against the steelers but. He he's someone who that. Is probably one of their better receivers I know they have a load of receiving town, but will fuller still one of their younger guys across that team. So if he can't go, that would be a pretty big one. We can even take a look at the Texans injury. Report for week two. Brandin cooks was limited in practice Titus Howard was questionable Duke Johnson they're running back was questionable Jj wasn't listed with an injury, but he was limited in practice. So, they're battling some stuff to, of course, the steelers are still. Waiting on David Decastro make that to come back and make his twenty twenty debut and missing era right tackle and sack banner but. If if the season were to prove anything so far it's at the steelers have great offense align depth, and that they're going to be able to battle through some of those things because of that depth. So with all that in mind I think we can wrap up this edition of the live Mike I'm Michael Beck deputy editor of behind the Steel Curtain Dot Com thank you guys for sitting through the ride with me.

Mailbag (Recorded Fri.)! (09/19 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from CBS sports. It's time to dominate your fantasy league. Here's some combination of Adam Dave Jamie Heath Ben. What's up everybody welcome to the Saturday mail bag atom as Jimmy Eisenberg. We don't have all the time in the world. So I'M NOT GONNA. Dilly. Dally. Let's get right to it. Jamie is over we got a lot of wide receiver injuries Chris Godwin's doubtful Kenny out almost certainly not going to play Michael Thomas could play this week Monday night at the raiders we've got Jamison crowder out Kirtland Sutton gametime decision devante Parker gametime decision has anything changed for you since we last spoke I mean we had a lot of this information but crowder being out is a little bit different anything you want to add a brown also ruled out. That we were kind of expecting given the practice reports. Wait to see what happens doors kill. You know hopefully, he's going to be out there and Michael Thomas I'm sure whatever they do on Saturday we'll determine if he can go sounds like I I know that God is probably going to be listed doubtful the injured board I haven't seen it yet. By the time we're recording this but there's a chance the protocol over the weekend and they are able to play him. You know. So it's not like it's a soft tissue injury or something like that. So he could still get out there and be able to go I think you're looking at you know if he's not out there some interesting replacement options, Scott Miller is available. A lot of leagues he played well in week one for the bucks. Corey Davis Great Week One game against the broncos he's GonNa get a good matchup against Jacksonville. He can help you as AJ Brown replacement. And then in that same, game? Adam Humphreys no, he's going to get some some targets additional targets as well. So we've talked about a lot of receivers throughout the week. Also gauge is available in a lot of leagues. He could have a good game, marquis, Valdez Gambling's coming strong game. He's available several weeks still. So there are options you could pivot to if you're stuck. And Jack Doyle has been ruled out for the game against the Minnesota Vikings. So hopefully that means more targets for T. Y. Hilton and Perez Campbell or maybe it's more targets for name hines and Jonathan Taylor who those are two players that we really like especially. Hindes on draft kings. One of my favorite place on Fan duel. Cuyler Murray I love you got any fan draftkings quarterbacks you like a lot this week. I mean I like are started the week which has been rothlisberger great match up against the broncos defense banged up I. Think he's GonNa play well, if you're looking for the contrarian plays or the lesser obvious guys now they coming off some strong games but Mitchell trubisky no against the giants to somebody you can look at and get some success out of I think a contrarian play for me would be meant you just because the ups not easy but he's GonNa probably throw a lot. It's it's funny like when you look at the the point spread and the implied total, the game is low the Jaguars expected points are low. I don't buy it. I think they're gonNA be throwing a lot chasing points. All right. Let's get some apple podcasts questions here. This is some cards fan three Andy Mike Jason, and Judge Giamatti. I'm guessing those are the football. Fans footballers. Who Judge you Matia. So fourteen cm league should I flex will fuller Zach Moss Preston Williams Anthony Miller or Josh Kelley will fuller. Zach Moss Preston Williams Anthony Miller Josh Kelley. Was the story I don't know. If it's Probably, fuller even though I don't love the matchup, it's non PBR I may go with Moss. Okay. this one is from RJ Y H, dear, Julio Amari Calvin. Jerry. Alabama. Twelve twelve team full. Pr. Need three. For Two wide receivers Affleck's okay. Davante Adams is yes. So now he's one wide receiver and Affleck's Dj more will fuller Cooper Cup. Benny Snell. James Connor. One. Wide Receiver Inflict Yup more will fuller cooper cut. The coupons. And then Dj more will fuller and a steelers running back. James Connor. Okay rest of season questions here from Katie the Independent. Matt Stafford a Ryan Tannehill. I'll say, Stafford I. THINK WE'RE GONNA see an extended absence for AJ Brown and I'm hopeful that staffer gets golly back next week from Palu me should I trade Cam Newton for Josh Allen. Yes. Yes you should. From no mistake Jake I'm GONNA PR League keeper Lee. We keep two players from our final roster. Regardless of when the keepers were drafted they're put in the last two rounds. I currently have Alvin Kamara and Austin. Should I trade equity for Jonathan Taylor? Yes. from cooed Chris NPR should I trade Christian McCaffrey and DJ Shark? For Chris Godwit excuse me Chris Goblin Robert Woods and Jake Dobbins. McCaffrey and charge for Godwin Woods Dobbins NPR. Redraft. Yeah. Things No. Yeah. And you need to get her you need to get a running back back Dobbins can't not gonNA cut right now from Maple, Syrup? Maple Sarah who doesn't yeah. What a hot take? At the moment, who's the better trade value in Dynasty Malcolm Brown or James Robinson to give up or to acquire the WHO has more value. James. Robinson has more value because he could be the Jaguars starter for who knows how long and mocking round is hopefully going to be replaced him. All right. So here's the I'm going to have to go directly to itunes and checkout comments because they did not update on the web page. So bear with me a bit from your muck. He won both of his legs last year. Thanks for guidance. That's awesome. Okay. WHO DO I? Start at wide receiver and flex position pick to our lazard. TJ Hopkinson and Deontay Johnson. TJ Hopkinson. Johnson. This is from one, two, three, four, get this game need trade advice twelve teams, pr I give up. James Connor and Calvin Ridley. Cam Connor and Ridley. I get back Derrick Henry. Dj More, and Deontay. Johnson. Cam Connor Ridley for Henry, Moore and Deonte Johnson. I would do it. Okay. Gray the trade from Colin O'Donnell give will fuller get hotel Beckham. Man I had these guys rank really close. If you can believe that prior to the season I think Beckham was like twenty for me. And will fuller was in like the twenty seven range. I'll still take Beckham overfull or just because of the injury risks that fuller has, which is greater than Beckham's injury risk which both guys were injured risks but man, it wouldn't surprise me a fuller better. Okay. This is a big one from angry PD Pablo who says I miss you Benny Gretch I missed Ben. Gretch to yeah we all do. Hopefully. We'll hear him back on the shell co- come on as a guest ten team Dynasty League. Would you trade Josh? Jacobs AJ Brown Paris Campbell and Josh Kelley. Josh. Jacobs AJ Brown Paris Campbell Josh Kelley for Miles Sanders Boston Scott. Michael Gallup devante Parker and Alan. Robinson. No yes. No. Yes. No. I give it up. Jacob's you're getting back Sanders and Scott. There's that part you're giving up AJ. Brown. Peres Campbell and Josh Kelley. You're getting back Gallup Parker and Alan Robinson that's such a win a huge hole long-term. No. Oh, it's dynasty right? Oh I'm sorry about that. It's still not that bad but okay that those. Who knows what happens US change? Sorry Robinson and maybe on the team again yeah. Yeah. All right. That's my bad. Gray, the Trade Chris and we'll fuller get Michael Thomas CPR. Boy Carson for Thomas Yes. Agreed the trade. Well. You know somebody brought this up right like. Saquon Barkley and who else came back from an ankle sprain last year and wasn't very good. was. It's a good question I don't know. Oh man got to think about that. SAQUON. All right. I'll think about it. I think about Chris Carson and Henry Rugs for awesome. Heckler. Chris. Carson and Henry Rugs for Austin Actor You know the format I don't know it. Oh PTR. A Lot I know it. I'd rather have backward. From Hugo Robinson Evan Ingram is my starting tight end but I just picked up OJ Howard Ingram was terrible in week one he gets the bears, niners and rams next three weeks Howard Gets Carolina Denver and the chargers your thoughts. I would still rather have ingram because he's not sharing with cadence Smith, the level of what Howard will eventually share with rock. I read one more here grade the trade from I. Swear Amount Bandwagon. I think we might have read this already, but we'll do it again. Standard League I get Ezekiel Elliott's. Chris Godwin and Evan Ingram Zeke Goblin Ingram. I give up. Clyde Edward Zealander. Robert Woods and George Kibble. Interesting very interesting I would rather have the Godwin in anger. Okay. Thank you so much everybody for the kind words on apple podcasts for the five star reviews, and for your questions, we got a lot of emails to get to. Do you remember who had the ankle sprain? Either Now, trying to get my fantasy cops music queued up because it's time for the cups. Oh. Here we go. Get some league disputes to settle. Brand from the goodfellow airfare air force base here's the scenario. Brennan. One hundred dollar entry fee salary. Cap. League and I am the League manager I will only deny a trade if it is absolutely one hundred percent collusion which I did not state during or before the trade. Coincidentally, the first trade made involve me which occurred after week one I was giving away Malcolm Brown and Marvin, Jones. And I got DJ Morph from Malcolm Brown and Marvin Jones the gentleman who was receiving Malcolm Brown and Marvin. Jones has Adrian Peterson as rb to. and his bench running backs or all droppable players. So he needed a running back obviously gave up DJ more for Brown and Malcolm Brown and Marvin Jones. The problem occurred when multiple fantasy managers vetoed the trade but the league settings were set and has been set since pre-draft at the League manager for he's saying that the commissioner. Can only veto the trade. Can we get your expertise on fantasy owners or managers having right to alter trades for other managers? What do you think? This is not an example of collusion. In my opinion this is not an example of an egregious trade because you're buying low on DJ more and you're selling high on Malcolm Brown and clearly there's an example of a need for Malcolm Brown and you're getting Marvin Jones back in return. So if DJ more had a DJ more game like we're hoping, he's we're GONNA see more times than not than it's you know it's hard sell to say that a guy draft in the first round should be traded for. A. Late, round pick or free agent pickup in a mid round wide receiver. But let's let's put this scenario this way what can you all these off the rest of your or six six weeks? Yeah. What if DJ Moore's is not nearly as good as we thought he was going to be He's got a new coach new quarterback in the new coordinator and all those things. So this is not a veto veto trade by any stretch. Okay. Yeah. Let it go. One owner has already demanded his money back. One guy dropped his entire team. Come, on this is silly this is silly. You're, cool. Brandon you have are you have the the approval of? Fantasy Congress. Thank you very much. Time for your emails. Now, fantasy football CBS, I dot Com. This is from Alex.

All right emails from Alex Twelve team half PBR. League. please. Pick one to start in flex will fuller. Paris Campbell or Deontay Johnson. I WANNA say one of the two. Non. Will Fuller guys but. Fuller should get more targets and hopefully be successful. I wake. Up on the video on Friday afternoon I took. deontay. Johnson over someone and you guys were like, what was it will? Fuller Metcalf ezekie metcalf. That's right right. Okay. From Brandon Pr James Connor Marvin Jones or DJ Shark. James? Connor really. Scary, scary. Now. Well I mean, Eh Dj Charleston a tough match-up against titans would be my second choice and Marvin Jones is so never always wildcard. From Angel I don't know if I should stick with the Vikings or pick another DSP. Pick another DSP TAMPA ARIZONA Green Bay Miami. I like Arizona you know it's funny because sometimes when we get upsets. And there's something. So swayed in the other favor and in this case of Washington and Philadelphia, everybody's just making a big deal about how bad carson wentz looked in an offensive line and nobody's talking about the fact that the Washington football teams offense was not good. Yeah I know but. I I mean. All of this list I'm going Tampa Bay. Because I, think they have a great defense. And they're gonNA get after Carolina you, no Sir I, don't see a fault. Zone. I think Arizona's going to. Harass Haskins and not give up the points and listen the Vikings. DSP is not what it once was. Probably not it might be they could have a Tampa Bay like resurgence with their secondary as the young kids get better as the season goes on because remember the secondary was atrocious last year but the biggest thing for me is Neil Hunter if they get him back. It's shaves a half a second off the pass rush. Make things better and make some gop way better because he's playing opposite a great player. So that's I. Think what you're GonNa hang your hat on is you know what they look like when he's there. Yeah and got me a big big zero ADP this. Week. alright I don't have a name on this one, but I have a wide receiver core of Calvin Really deontay Johnson, Allen, Robinson, Dj more and tabloid I can't start them all. So should I try and trade or just keep them in rotate for the best matchups my running backs, Henry, and drake so I'm not hurting there either. I mean obviously, if you could trade one of those guys you want to do it. You know now's a good time to probably shop Tyler Boyd after his good game. Thursday night because he could be inconsistent if you WANNA shop Allen Robinson after what should be great game this week you can do that as well but you know you'd rather try and flip somebody like Johnson is still keep the top tier guys on your team. About even though you have good running backs to do package, see if you can give one of those receivers, let's can you drake to get. Busy golly right. For people, who start? Instead of Jamison crowder from Aldo, the viscous Chenault devante Parker James Robinson Josh Kelley, or Logan Thomas. Shinola. Interesting to me because they think they're gonNA get a lot of targets for him or certainly more targets than last week but he's he's too risky. Give me the names again. Yeah. Chenault Parker James Robinson Josh Kelley Logan Thomas Pr. I'M GONNA? Go. James Robinson. This is from away. Can I just say something quick aside if devante Parker plays any plays well I kind of feel like you have to buy in at least as long as it's Patrick's quarterback, I would sell high. Because of the quarterback and because you know Preston Williams is going to be a problem for him. Yeah. But don't think what I'm saying is like week one devante Parker actually was off to a pretty good start against new. England, he caught all of his targets. He was their leading receiver and then he got hurt if he goes off tissue injury that's been lingering for few weeks now, quarterback change coming. More talented players on the field. There's just a lot of things up against them. I would say more talented player on the field. They have a lot of guys out there. Well, I mean Zaki didn't play. Well, he said, you know what is going to be too brutal matchups back to back weeks he's going to be better and. I think it is going to be a problem for these. Pigs may chances yeah. All right I need some flex help here. This is from Mitch. James Connor will fuller Terry maclaurin pick one in half PBR. Connor Fuller maclaurin. David Heath are very confident in foreign. I'm a little bit more concerned. I just had the next Basim Jamie orderly and pain how I'll say, conor. What the hell just really hurt. Okay Tim Scott Her James It is Thank you Mitch from. J. Money Eighty five. Ten team. Give up saquon Barkley. This is the worst traitor ever seen. That Get, James Connor and Malcolm Brown I also have acquired any snow on waivers. The worst trade you have ever seen pretty bad up there do not do that unless you're getting sick on Barker Dion Hernandez start. SNELL DJ. More will fuller DJ. Shark. Go with DJ Shark in. More fuller more. Adam from California to Pat Roberts, squid, and plank. Spongebob, Spongebob Yeah should I give up Anthony Miller to get deebo Samuel. Interesting No. From Greg Dear Freddy Brian john-roger. I think that's Queen. Look that up only like three famous Freddie's. There's drop dead Fred. Names again, Freddie Brian John Roger. Ready Brian John, and Roger. Yeah. I was GonNa, say pretty, Mitchell. There's Eagle who Brian but no. did you didn't get my mic drop dead? Fred Joke? Yes I didn't this is queen or have you ever seen drop dead Fred. Really. No ridiculous movie. All, right. Great. The trade half PR give up decay. Metcalf and Malcolm Brown get a Taylor. Is Really, decay furred Taylor, and I would do that. I think we're doing a good job selling. Hi, Malcolm Brown, you have to you absolutely have to you know it's just one of those things where the three guys that we talked about right. Then it's now nineteen hines and Malcolm. Brown. Smell. You knew what you were getting could be replaced this week. It's unfortunate that it happened. We thought maybe connor missed the game. But as I said, there was chance that's not a win your week. Now he's a lottery ticket waiting to happen when she was prior to last week ninety, nine's roles lockton. Malcolm Brown is a placeholder. He may be good for another couple of weeks I don't doubt that. But eventually he's going to be replaced. We'll see if he's good this week Scott half PR choose one Malcolm Brown camakers Sutton Emmanuel. Sanders Darius Slayton. Is. Between Malcolm Brown variously and does format say half PBR happier. I'm going to go sleep. From Aaron I need some trade advice would you accept this trade give up? Well. I don't know what side he's getting. Ezekiel Elliott Joe Mixon and Jonathan Taylor Oh he has the give up give up Zeke, get mixed them Taylor. If. You don't have a good second running back I'd make this deal but if you do then I would not. From Kyle half PR I have levy on Bell Chris Godwin and devante Parker should I flex? Benny Snell. Jerry. Judy or CAM. Acres. Men. Judy I guess. What of Sutton? Place I'm accounting sudden. Planks. Okay Yeah. I mean acres had a role. Judy. It is from. Justice vow, Hulo Justice, and vow. Hey Brian, Mike Dick and bill. That feels bears easy. Does right Urlacher Ditka Butkus. WHO's bill? Bill Nye signed Yeah Bill, Nye. He's Fan Mike Evans. Are Dj more. Mike Evans Miles Sanders Our Name hines. Sanders. Non PP are hinds, NPR Tom. Brady Ben. Rothlisberger. Ben. Rothlisberger. And from Matt from do. All. That's not annoying or anything Jacksonville people. Donald Daffy in duckie. GRADE TRADE GIVE UP EH cler and get Carson and maclaurin give up get Carson Lauren. And she has a similar question earlier. Probably and goes Carson something else. Let's see if I can find it. was wondering first question's shy trade for Jonathan Taylor. I. Think Jamie's lying right now. I. Think it was an apple podcast questions. Oh it's like on Oh. Okay. I'll look weigh in actor for Carson and corn. One I would do. Yep nobody cares about this mission that I'm on right now. All Right Jamie that was that was our mailbag show is nice and tidy. What else should we do for for seven and did so for the people that are the listening to us? This is a one and a half times that we've done this show because you forgot to record it on video, the high three minutes I. WanNa say Logan We didn't when we did the first part of it we didn't talk. We really do it this time Oh yeah we could do that. All right. Well listen if you listen to me last week, you would have won four dollars. So you're welcome. and but actually, that's not true because what if you had listened to my advice my lineup became outdated when Mile Sanders was ruled out. So it's all a big lie. But I actually had a pretty good week. I only one dollars because you know it's hard to win a lot of money in that. Contest but Love Jonathan Taylor this week. Love Him. On Fan will and pandals great i. mean you can just you just get like the sickest lineups, but I went with Smile Sanders Jonathan Taylor, and remote start at my flex. cuyler Murray at wide receiver, Ed quarterback rather, and if you do that, you'll have plenty of money for great great wide receivers. I went with a lot of this week. We'll guys. So t y Hilton Mike Evans things that you're hearing albums a good play. As. Well. You do a lot of good stacks this week. You know. So you can stack trubisky in. If you want to very funny sense to say, good. And then there's some. Stacks a couple of Rothlisberger and jujubes with deonte Johnson as well. He's cheaper clearly than due to but doc in any of his receivers should be fun also Yeah. The funny thing is like I don't really feel the need to stack Kyle Murray because he run so much. Right. But although if you it's backed them last week, he'd be pretty pretty good. By the way the question was Chris Carson Henry Rugs for all sin- cler right. So maclaurin clearly an upgrade over rugs. Okay. All right everybody. Tell me I'm wrong Mr. That, you said I was wrong. I didn't say you were wrong and said you were lying a line well. Wrong. Have a great weekend Jamie.

Episode 110: Solo Pod Week 2 Recap & Adam Gase Takes

"Has, low and welcome to episode one, hundred, ten of the official established the run DOT COM podcast mining examine Levitan the father of the most beautiful beast in the World Jerry we're coming off of a football won't be around in a hundred. Years. Week. Yes that's right. I'm pretty confident that sometime relatively soon, the health toll that football takes on these dudes bodies will outweigh the entertainment. The game provides us and the money that makes you know maybe not in our lifetime, maybe not in our kid's lifetime. But sometime, you know relatively soon and I think everyone is freaking out about all the week to injuries at least in part because there were so made a skill players. Be Fantasy. Football is why the NFL is so popular. So when Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley Devante, Adams in Paris Campbell Jimmy Garoppolo and cam acres sutton in Sterling Shepard moster all get hurt on the same day. It's a nightmare. It's time to freak out. But if you're bunch of blocking tight end and defensive tackles, you know no, one would be up in arms. Yeah but alas, this is the game and let's be very honest. I was able to book a win this week but it was only because Davante Adams got hurt because Peres Campbell got hurt I mean to Adams with forty five percent owned in the big twenty five dollars single entry double up on draftkings Paris wasn't as zone but he was owned somewhat to see I I think my lineup was good. You know whatever I got lucky that those guys got hurt I was on the good side of it that Devante in Paris got hurt. So anytime that I'm tempted to bitch or whine about running bad, you know I try to remember things like this like when I want to wine about DAX stealing three one yard touchdowns or Zeke Rabat Julio, dropping like the easiest forty, two yard touchdown, he'll ever have. I try to remember this. That I got lucky with the Davante Adams and Paris Kimball. Injuries. Now, let's be clear regardless of result the quote unquote optimal construction in we to was very, very clear. The three running back Ezekiel Elliott Jonathan Taylor Derrick Henry a six K. quarterback achieve tight end into four K. wide receivers. I mean Jesus frigging Dj Pauly D. was on that construction. But just knowing that that that is the construction is so important obviously for cash but also for tournaments because as I hope, everyone knows by now understanding what our opponents are going to do in NFL. DFS tournaments is almost as important as knowing what the actual NFL players are going to do. And it was. Let's start with cash and yeah, I, mean I couldn't fathom not playing Zeke and JT and Henry in cash the big dog projecting. So clearly of the field where those three, all of them in great setups is couldn't fathom not playing one of cuyler or Dak or Josh Allen, in the six range cuyler obviously standing out given price matchup pace in that game and also couldn't fathom that plane deontay Johnson at forty five hundred as he ascends to the wide receiver one role for a healthy big Ben against an agent boy lists von Miller List Denver. Defense in Pittsburgh. So after we got those five guys in after that, there were some decisions but anyone that didn't have that kind of construction I. Mean I'm happy to play against them in other words. It was what I like to call approve it week and we have some of these every year you know and like in the bubble of DFS twitter and in the bubble of people who follow me and Evan and Etr here you can't play cash everyone's going to have the same lineup. You know the slightest fucked you know don't play cash that there's no edge. Debit that's that's not the way I see it, I see it I have the stones prove to me that you can also have the stones and in the big hundred dollars single up on draftkings, which is certainly not low stakes. But let's talk about the big hundred dollars on draftkings for a second Jonathan. Taylor was only seventy three percent owned at fifty, seven, hundred, twenty, six, point, eight percent in the field did not play. Jonathan Taylor in the hundred dollars single engine. Ezekiel Elliott was only point seven percent own deontay Johnson forty point seven percent CD lamb twenty, three point one percent that let's talk about low stakes. You know, let's say the the five dollars single entry double up. Taylor is only sixty four percents zeke fifty, five percent Derrick Henry seventy, two, Johnson, thirty, seven, cuyler, fifty seven. And if you did a good job posting your head to heads of using the block function, other things that I talked about in the game section article, which is still up for free while I bet that that you know gasp you know I bet that not everyone has the same lineup I'll always make them prove it. Now what is true is at the nosebleed stakes at small field high stakes cash. Yeah. It's mostly too tight three threes but ninety nine point nine percent of the people listening to this are completely unaffected by that. So again, these proven weeks are ones we should I think look forward to in cash not tried to avoid. And that brings me to GP's because we have a week like this with ownership. So clustered on a few guys I, mean this is a GP players full blown pants off intercourse Kinda weak and if you're looking for a clinic I, mean like a textbook GP play like if you look up g. p. play in the dictionary week to Aaron Jones of the twenty, twenty season should come up. devante Adams. We had projected ownership around thirty percent. Derrick Henry Zeke Elliot Jonathan Taylor sucking up all of the running back ownership packers had the biggest offensive line defensive line mismatch of the week in thorns rankings literally number one offense a mining, its number thirty, two defensive line. So. If Jones gets the TD's for green. Bay You ice the DEVANTE teams if Jones outscores three chalk running backs, you ice those teams as well, and he had a very, very, very good chance to do so given the setup even though we knew Williams play. Aj dealing with play tyler play still had a really good chance to do so. We've seen his past game role, we've seen his touchdown efficiency. In the red zone. Way More than nine percent owned would suggest that Aaron Jones, could ice those guys so put it on the wall of fame man you know Dink Leoni spend most of their Saturday show talking about Aaron Jones Leoni won the Duke, which is the fourth three Max on draftkings with Aaron Jones he actually had Jones on all three of his teams there. You know even me a sick sick gp fish had Jones in the Juke. Helped me cash there I. Think if you play tournaments in, didn't think about this spot for air joins from theory perspective it's probably time to look in the mirror and look it can go the other way as well. Right? Like I thought he M- hines was an interesting pivot off of JT tournaments. You know it seems crazy now. After I. Got One touch all game. But what if indy got behind big or whatever the he actually had a real role? Jt Twenty three percent owned hines was eight, and that's just a GP life. You know you're GONNA. Take on these leverage spots and you know Aaron. Jones was a wall of fame play for GBP's weather worked or not. House want to spend a minute on Derrick Henry. You know it's easy to point and laugh at Derrick Henry feeders when the dude is ripping off seventy five yard td Ron's and stiff arming dudes eighty pounds. Lighter than him in the secondary, but you can see how the way he scores fantasy points yields a much lower floor than the other guys in his price range. When you are zero in the past scheme, you are subject to both touchdown dependency in game flow dependency and that's not to say the Derrick Henry. Was a bad play in two. I think he was fine. But we know going in that when he doesn't score a touchdown, he's never going to be a bad fate like he could go for thirty five carries hundred and fifty yards and that fifteen points on That's eighteen points on draftkings like no regrets about fading him at a pet. So playing Derrick Henry on full PBR draftkings like it takes a really unique spot for me to do it. I. Thought this was a unique league. Good spot maybe was maybe it wasn't. But again, Sterling for Tournaments Derrick Henry at seventy, nine, hundred, thirty plus percent projected ownership should give pause. tight ends I know everyone is tilted about Chris Herndon. I'm tilted about Chris Herndon and look maybe it's just this simple. Don't play guys. He plays for Adam gays period. And and honestly, like I'm only half joking I mean Ryan Tannehill Kenyan Drake Damien Williams, devante Parker Robbie Anderson you know so far this year they all break out as stars after they rid themselves and gays I mean the dude doesn't have Jamison crowder Levian Balbir pyramid goes down early and he leaves herded into Block League high rates. And you know I, it's on me honestly right like I hate really hate when people bitch about coaches when it comes to fantasy our job isn't to figure out what coaches should do is to figure out what they will do. There's a huge difference I think about that. So bitching about gays and Patricia or whatever saying what they should be doing just irrelevant. So that's on me. You know I just didn't think gays would have any other choice but to feature Herndon in the past game. I was just wrong. Just wrong and on the other end of that spectrum with Jordan. Reed, the best coach in the League at town maximization is Kyle. Shanahan. The opposite of gays. So yeah, we talked about read a bunch on the Friday night show San Francisco. So desperate for pass catchers read knowing the cow Shanahan system allegedly looking great at camp excellent matchup, and then we get these quotes from shanty basically saying that well, you know we're not GonNa let Jordan. Reed. Ripped just because Georgia's out. You know that Kinda goes viral on on fantasy twitter. So I think I was always playing her didn't cash regardless but I didn't know that these quotes would make reads ownership absolutely plummet in tournaments and it did I mean he was only twenty six and he was only eleven percent or so George Kid out. But still you know even on twenty snaps and read ended up playing twenty eight a guy like him can get there at that price. You know. So just a note they're on being aware of news in processing. Okay I talked enough it is time to get to everyone's favorite portion of the program. The listener questions producer Luke hit the theme music. Okay got a ton of good ones. Really appreciate the questions as always going to do seven today from fart boy. He says, can you talk about your player prop bet process a little more if I have a player projected two to three yards higher than their line is that we're betting or do you usually only bet lines that seem way off So the biggest thing on props that you want to lean unders whenever possible the first reason is in it's difficult for the books that bake that into align, and also in game flows go unexpected the under typically benefit for example, Derek Henry's rushing one, hundred eighteen and a half yard. What if the titans fall behind seventeen nothing in the first quarter words, Monday adams the is half catches and the packers are winning twenty eight to three at halftime. You know under GONNA profit in those unexpected game flows. But in terms of edge is on perhaps in terms of projections yet two or three yards is not enough I mean it's so soft out there on projections if you shop. Across different books, we should be able to find twenty percent edges in our projections versus lines on yardage stuff. And that's. What I'm looking for twenty percent difference at least and also I want to be on the underside. Then this. That's really the value prop is just being good fantasy players understanding injury related fall out. I. Mean that's the real value. That's where we generate the biggest O. is, for example, you know finding align on Moallem Cox when Doyle Intrigue Berkner out or finding a line rob Gronkowski when we know he's black he's a blocker he dust as a pass catcher you know stuff that we know as good fantasy players that again the profits up there for marketing you're not going to be able to get a lot of money down you're GONNA get limited they're just up there for marketing they're not trying to create the sharpest lines possible on these. Question to from Jay Morris he says optimal home pooping strategy for a Germaphobe has to be sitting directly on the bowl bypassing the seat. No one else does it therefore making it less journey? Tell me why I'm right? Yeah I can honestly say that I've never heard of this idea or thought of it first of all, J.. Morris, how big is your ass that you can actually sit directly on the bowl not on the seat I mean that's wild second of all assume you live with you know sons the the actual bowl is pretty disgusting. People constantly missed the water. They hit the ball. I mean I do too in my five year old is hitting the bullet probably like in eighty percent clip. So so no I don't like this idea I think GTO is at hopefully and I don't have this. But hopefully, you have a house where the kids have their own bathroom and then like the double stall master and what I mean by that go into the master bath and it's wide open. But on opposite sides, there's two small stalls you know toilets only keep it separate a man and woman. I think that's the drill. Question three comes from Lucia Luchino? Fidalgo. He says, what is a realistic expectation for cashing in the single enter double ups if you're entering relatively sharp lineups, what should you expect slash aim for by the end of the year I e going twelve and five, twenty, twenty or whatever. So updated my stats and I looked through them my Roi in those games. is about twelve or thirteen percent in that includes some higher stakes stuff though so I could certainly see it being higher at lower stakes that works out to roughly ten and seven. I think if you go eleven six, that's awesome. Twelve five would be a really spectacular year you know I've said this so many times before but people's conception of what kind of our y the best people generate in gambling is. So out of whack like the best sports bettors in the world are winning at three to five percent idea fast players I think ten to fifteen percent. You're absolutely crushing and annual game selecting a poker elise live. If you're playing like five ten no limit and you're making sixty or seventy bucks an hour like you're really killing. So yeah, I'd encourage everyone to keep expectations in check. Stay on the grind. Four from when coast he says had you avoid information overload slash paralysis by analysis A lot of people struggle with this. So I'd say the first thing I do is not even look at the slate prices matchups nothing don't even I don't even look at this late until Wednesday or Thursday from Monday morning until then I'm just gathering information in the form of usage injuries what coaches are saying but really just mainly usage. So I have a clear head of how I think players. Will be used in the upcoming week and I'm going to start building lineups weekly until Friday night or so I'll try to finish my cash lineup or at least be in a good place with by Saturday, and then I don't even build GP LINEUPS I've been building like six, seven, eight, a week I don't even build those until Sunday morning you know just come in fresh with all of it. No terms of information overload slash process by analysis yeah. Of that and honestly I think part of my job, our job at Etr, the literally go through everything all the information all the takes impaired down to what actually matters like really I really really. We only try to publish stuff that you need nothing more because, yeah you guys have jobs and kids and families in lives and team smell the roses, and so it's just not practical to read and sift through everything It's up to us to pull out what's important. So yeah, I'd try to find a process that works for you step back and what set back and think about what actually matters because most of football and most of what you'll read is just like straight noise like it's incredibly small sample size stop that's always changing contexts because of injuries because of personnel. Changes because coaching changes. For me my processes usage usage usage snaps in pays line play. Match matchups, and then using projections understand the value of a player based on his salary like it's really not too complicated. But you need to develop your own process. What exactly what you think is important. And make sure that it's tight. Question Five from falling Jeez he says when you shower at the gym, do you wear swim shots or do you let your fruit basket hang out like a normal human being? Good question question. So I haven't been to the gym since March but when things are popping in their man, the locker room is such a scene like the generational gap is so wild like all these old dudes who's Dick size inversely correlates with their willingness to be naked are just out there flopping around and the younger guys you know maybe forty five and under they do the artful thing the. gentlemanly thing and that is you take off your underwear with a towel wrapped around your waist. You walk with the towel around your waist of the shower. Once in the shower, you take the towel off you hang it up and you turn the water on like this isn't rocket science. It doesn't need to be any fruit baskets out there swinging around now if it's groups our if it's group shower situation. I see what you're saying about some people wearing swim shorts or whatever, and no I I don't do that. If you do that you're not cleaning the most important part of your body. The one we need all of our research done agenda LABS LLC, gender consultants is conducted under the assumption of clean apparatus this data. It's useless if we introduce Phil. Question six comes from Jordan Bolger. He says, do you have a GTO DE que crown strategy? Do you ever miss a day of collecting your daily reward? Okay to two questions here from Jordan, first of all, for those who don't know what he is referring to there are two awards systems on draftkings like it's not much but it's free and I hope everyone is taking advantage. The first is every day. If you go to the rewards tab on on desktop, of course, like a man, you go to the rewards tab goto daily rewards. Literally all you do is click on that page and it gives you something It depends on how much you played in the previous month. So I think you need to play twenty five. K. in a month to get diamond. If you do you get anywhere from like one dollar to five dollars a day just by clicking takes one second I never miss a day and at lower tiers you get crowns or whatever the second rewards thing that draftkings has its crowns thing. So every time you play tournament, you get some crowns where give in other ways sometimes. You can exchange these crowns for Byron's whenever you want I want to be clear that you know that both these reward systems are in. Great right it's not a lot of money. It's not that big a deal but it it's something. So in terms of crowned usage strategy I really don't think that matters too much some people like to save them and save them and save them until they have enough to get a quote unquote free buying into something, they wouldn't normally play. Others just constantly spend their crowns always have a balanced zero. There was a time when I thought there was a chance like even those smaller because of draftkings could got a business or something legally would happen, and at that time I would just blow rewards or any tickets that I got i. soon as I got them, it was just like a negative free role not To. But now tracking company, it's obviously secure from a legal landscape I. Really don't think that matters the only only consideration I guess is a change in policy or changing value like we know what happened with poker stars in Supernova elite like they woke up one day and change the rules. So I guess with that in mind spending crowns freely is probably slightly plessey. Question seven last question we're going to do today comes from the mich- he says. My buddy has five daughters desperately wants a son should I tell him to focus more on ta thrust annual t PM thrust per minute were rt release timing is there another metrics latch tactic he should be using as a babe ruth of conception I figured you could help him out. Yeah well, thank you the mich- for the Nice words there as Babe Ruth Conception, you know there are a lot of jokes and it's all fun and games about gender lab stuff but people forget how gender labs started. We set out to accomplish a simple goal. Help our clients achieve the desired sex of their child through data and proper technique. That's it. You know I have two kids both are boys do you think that's a coincidence? Do you think that I just jammed some projections into optimize earned hit run? Of course not it's a lot of work and skill. It's thousands of hours of research on what matters you know a dob average depth of penetration proving out to be the key but there's lots of other metrics as well that MRS referring to. This is the core business the gender optimization you know the peo- pumps over expectation. Other stuff is just for fun. You Know Nice vertical of the business as we scale. Honestly though I really have done a lot of research on gender optimization I'm pretty convinced. It's no fluke that I have two boys like it. All has to do with different characteristics of male sperm for females per male sperm don't live as long. They're more fragile they're lighter so we need to change our technique. To compensate for the General Idea Mitch if your buddy needs more help. I can do an in home console. You know during the intercourse, it would be my honor. Our. That is GonNa do it for another edition of these Solo Pod? We will be back with Silva for team by team pods one free one behind the pay wall later today. So. Full. Or. Jerry. Four I had. Good luck everybody.

TE Tiers 2019

"Welcome to the N._F._l.. Talking Heads Fantasy football podcast show here a your hosts Jeff Carrier Seth Law. Hello everyone and welcome to the N._F._l.. Talking talking heads of fantasy football podcast show. I'm your host Jeff carrier. He is seth law. We are back for another great episode to talk tight end tears getting closer rounding out all our positional tears for everyone out there and seth it is time the training camp season has finally started. We're going to actually start seeing seeing some players on the field and you know soon enough. They'll be most likely some injuries impacting rankings and of course eighty ps but it's exciting to see people on the field in football almost here. Oh Yeah it's been it's been way too long and we are. We're back in it. It's one hundred degrees out today in New Hampshire and no better place to be during one hundred under degree day than inside in the air conditioned in the air conditioning talking fantasy football so let's let's get to it all right so before we get into tight end tears big breaking news on Tyreek Hill there will be no suspension from the N._F._l.. tyreek hill you know let's just skip the part on the inconsistency of the N._F._l.. And whether or not he should have been suspended or not. That's a different discussion. Let's get to whereabout uh fantasy football where does terry kill now slide into your rankings A._D._p.. Wise not ranking. Should I say where does he slide in eighty P wise on the draft board where we're my drafting him Yup also when we talk yesterday when the news broke and you ask me my first reaction was like third round. That's the first thing I said we talked about it and as before I even looked at any updated eighty ps and it looks like you know his A._D._p.. Is Bright in the third round three point four and I think that's pretty on target right now. I'm drafting him today. If the draft is today I would take him in the third round right around three point zero four. That's pretty spot on now if it's pretty quiet on the tyreek hill front from now until the being the season and we're here in late August and he's always you know he's on his best behavior hasn't got into trouble. There's no nothing else is breaking is no other evidence that emerges than I could see taking him in the the second round. Maybe the end of the second round middle the second round the bottom line is tyreek hill. If this off the field stuff never never immersion or was never an issue. He's a early second rounder like you can make a case for maybe taking him in the first round right I mean he he's that elite has that much upside. He's probably the number one fantasy wide receiver if we're just talking football and when he brings you know on the field so the drafts right now. I'm taking him in the third round but I'm giving you know I'm open to moving that up to to the second round <hes> if nothing else crazy happens now in August. I'm going to be a a bit more aggressive as we kind of our initial reactions kind of led me to to to believe now if you if you're type person will you go on and you're looking at the A._D._p.. And you see three point zero four all you need to do is look at the chart of at four point zero three. There's four point four and now he's at three point four. He went up a full round within a day well. The law of averages should tell us that he's not getting to three or four because people are drafting met three. Oh four people were drafting him above that spot and that's where his average opposition happens to be landing or he skyrocketed in a day so my guess is he's getting drafted right now in the middle of the second so if you've seen three point four <hes> and you're you're going off that you're never going to get him realistically. If you're looking at the second round of the fantasy football draft I mean first thing that comes to mind is he easily sides in front of Damian Williams in my eyes I mean why why am I taking Damian Williams over Tyreek Hill. You're not doing that so so he easily slides in front of that spot as worst case scenario and then in terms of just a range of outcomes or Dra- oppositions. I say he could go as high as above depending on how you like some of these players like I would take Juju over him but I would take tyreek over Odell Beckham so now we're talking on the fringe of the turn so my guess is he's. He's all the way that high to potentially downward Liam so one point twelve to two point zero. Seven is the range. I have a minute and probably closer to the top of that range. I mean mean if we didn't get in trouble for what we just all experience right if he didn't get in trouble then then he's not gonna get suspended during the season even if he did something else he would need some kind of the Cam. I'd be more worried about the Kansas City the chiefs potentially suspending him if something else comes up and they face a big you know a p._r.. Hit and there's backlash there's pressure put on the chiefs. Maybe the chief suspend him. You know I don't know or maybe this this gets. Maybe something else happens in this gets to be to the the point where there's so much heat on tyreek Hill that there's a huge distraction and he wasn't perform or he who knows. I mean like if you're if you're going to take him in the early second round or some of these players wanted to take over Julio. I mean like either there. You're hedging against all that other stuff. You're not now. I'm hedging against all that other stuff by taking him in the third round if you're not doing that if you're taking him over Odell Beckham then what you're saying is I'm not worried about any of that other stuff at all so at that point wanted to take him in the first round. Down I think he's a first round player like you could take you could take him over Julio. You can take him definitely over Le Vian Bell you could potentially take him over Michael Thomas. I mean if he if we're just talking about tyreek hill the fantasy football wide receiver. He's probably W top eight or nine pick yeah I mean I suppose I mean you definitely have a point. I'm most I am more on the side of. I'm not really paying attention to anything else happening because also the Kansas City chiefs allowed him back into the facilities weeks before this announcement so it seems like everything's kind of getting brush underneath the rug now that we have a solid month until we actually have our draft. I think that we'll get everything we need to know in terms of quote unquote P._R.. It would take something drastic like a ray rice kareem hunt video to come out and I think we've already kind of heard you know in audio the worst that was released so I I suppose you always have that risk with someone with Terry kills background but I'm going for more upside there but anyways good conversation going to be a very interesting player over the next few weeks I think without a shadow of a doubt he's going to be creeping up at least a solid round if not more to your point because of how he did finish last year he does deserve to be potentially in the conversation of the first wide receiver off the board and the first wide receiver off the board is is typically deandre Hopkins at around six so all right so let's jump into it tight ends ooh tough position to picks the sexiest position Asian all fantasy so this should be a little bit shorter because it's just not as much obviously depth here to talk about. We have a couple of the the regulars right at the top that we're familiar with this. is how the topless. Let's just top ten. I'M GONNA say with a top ten finished out last year and you can start off with your tier. One tight ends just in order from one to ten was Travis Kelsey kittle Erz Hebron Cook Burton Burton Austin Hooper the joke who Rudolph O._J.. Howard and some of these are obviously you know ranking the difference between ranking thirteen and six for example was like a total title of less than it was ten points so less than one point a week so there really aren't ten good tight ends here if you're an attend team league in every team has one tight end l.? Every semester star one tight end is going to be at least two or three the teams that aren tight end stream mode starting we one okay so tier one for you for tight ends tier one from eases Travis Calcium jacquards. I think clearly Travis Kelsey is a a little bit ahead of jacquards but I like them. Both you can't go wrong with either one. I would put them in the same here on. I think it's pretty pretty easy pretty straightforward. Travis Chelsea's Akers Tier One yep now of course we're GONNA follow up all of our tears with breaking down where they're going A._D._p.. Wise so that's going to be a different discussion but I did want to clarify that just because we're we're saying Zakar. It's the same tears Kelsey <hes> in terms of player and quality and all that stuff. I am a little hesitant on where's Akers A._D._p.. Is You know and Kittles for that matter but we're going to get to that in different say yeah. We're look at it like it is if A._D._p.. Doesn't matter value doesn't matter just who who who do you have all things are equal if you can get him in the same spot. Who would you rather have <hes>? I think it's clearly travis Kelsey Anzac urged you agree. Yep completely agree on that because here's here's the key. I think a lot of people are going to say you know. Why are you not have George Kill Kill in that <hes> in that that tier because his A._p.? Is Three Point Nine Zakharov three point zero six. They're close <hes> George kill had more receiving yards last year. He's he's a little younger in my thing is and I have we'll kind of transition to the second tier George Kill <hes> by himself into your to the reason for that is it's just a little bit more uncertainty with George Kitto. Jimmy Garoppolo is going to be healthy. We'll see Jimmy. Garoppolo can stay healthy. That offense is on the come up. Endorsed kills obviously going to be a big part of that. He was a big part of their offense last year on a really really bad team so I think George kiddle has you could argue. He has a little more upside Zacher especially considering. I don't think anybody expects Akers to have one hundred sixteen catches again but I just like the situation as accurate and the it's more stable. I think George kittle could potentially be a little bit more volatile but I think he's clearly in the second tier by himself. If you miss out on Jacquards and Travis Kelsey and you end up with George Kill you have one of the three best tight ends and fantasy football and like we saw last year he's going to be a stud so George Kettle into your to all by himself and after that I think there's a pretty big drop off yeah and a lot can be said about the difference between target chair percentage when Jimmy Garoppolo is there and when he he wasn't is actually pretty similar twenty three percent the first three weeks with Jimmy Garoppolo twenty six percent with the rest of the quarter quarterbacks that they had for their meeting of the season of forty niners so you know there should be questioned in terms of if Jimmy Garoppolo's gotta feed kibble but I think the bigger question is can he hold onto his twenty three percents with the influx of new receivers and kind of weapons so. I think he might get a knock there but I think like you said it's close. He's in his own tier so I agree with that as well lily a little bit more uncertainty with if he can keep hold of that target share percentage but I look at his touchdown only five touchdowns last year so even if his target share percents drops off a little bit and even though we see that receptions eight eight receptions go down a little bit because of it he could easily put an eight nine touchdowns you know in that and so I think back a balance out but yeah he's he's in Tier Two tier three we big drop off and I think this is the spot where and this is probably different conversation Mt Tear Tear tweezers empty three-tiered pretty empty. I think at this point for me I would almost be looking to to wait like that's how crazy does this year with the it's really top heavy of the three big tie downs and after that and actually know what I'll make one one caveat too that is I really like O._J.. Howard and I think the problem with O._J.? Howard our is his A._D._p.? Is is five point zero seven so everything we love. Boji Howard is baked in already baked into his eighty pig which A._d._p.'s not top what we're talking about today so different conversation for different show but <hes> my tier three is is is O._J.. Howard Eric Hebron and Hunter Henry and Hunter Henry would be at the bottom of that here? I you know I debate even leaving him out of this third tier. I just decided I'm leaving Hunter Henry. He doesn't deserve to being here O._J.. Howard Air Lebron I I love O._J.? Howard for a lot of the same reasons that I love Chris Godwin we've we've already talked about Kris Golvin a lot? I know he's a trendy player. I I love of O._J.. Howard for so often the Bruce Arians thing which I wanNA talk about everybody mentioned the Bruce Arians the offense better but this is O._J.? Howard third year in the league this is where tight ends you know usually make the step forward to being an actual factor after now health is is always an issue with O._J.? Howard hasn't played a full season yet but only played eight games last year fourteen the previous year in his rookie are but we're already seen the touchdown said five or more touchdowns each of his first two seasons seasons four hundred more receiving yards each of his first two seasons and we don't usually tight ends make an impact at all? It's even worse than than it is a receivers when they come into the N._F._l.. Early on so I I like his talent his size his athletic ability loved the offense and no more Adam Humphries no more to Sean Jackson. I think it's GonNa be a big year throwing the ball for Tampa Bay. They lead the N._F._l.. Last year and pass attempts. They're gonNA throw the ball a ton so I like O._J.. Howard I I don't love his A._D._p.? But again we're doing tears and I think that he is clearly hands down. The fourth best tight end big drop off from George Killed O._J.. Howard but I think O._J.? Howard presents a good balance at this point of he's going me fairly safe relatives the tight ends that are in this grouping and he has the most upside at anybody else from this point on yet? I think the one that in terms of in this here the disagree with his Eric Hebron on I just don't like how they brought in Devin funchess who I feel like is fairly similar player to Eric Hebron even more weapons of Paris Campbell etc.. Maybe a healthy Marlin Mac. I just the more of a I don't like Hebron repeating his numbers and I I would probably throw Evan Ingram in the same tears how so so you didn't like you don't like Kevin Ingram obviously as much as Howard or even Abra no no no ear Iran. I see I agree with you on a lot of points about Abraham Hebron's a great example of for A._D._p.. I I don't love him and he probably won't be on a lot of my teams because six point twelve is too pricey for Hebron at the same point though we're just ranking these tight ends on you know how they are as fantasy players without A._D._p.'s entering into the equation argue bronze number four I mean I think you expect his touchdowns to come down a little bit because of what you mentioned with with the addition of funchess and maybe Peres Campbell Marla Mac and how the but bottom line indies going to have a really good offense and Andrew Lock is very efficient red zone. They're going to be a lot of touchdowns up for grabs. Eric Brown had thirteen touchdowns. I think he can still get ten so you were. We're talking about a a starting tight end with Andrew Lock on the Indianapolis Colts. Getting potentially ten touchdowns get to be in the seven to eight hundred receiving yards sixty <unk> distinct those are solid safe numbers to expect from Eric Hebron even if he comes down down a little bit on his production from last year and that's why I'm taking him over Evan Ingram you know I in terms of tears I like him more than Evan Ingraham a loved more than like him more than Hunter Henry and so on okay and so that wraps up tier three are- with O._J.. Howard and Eric Hebron heading into tier four is this where we have Evan Ingram and Hunter Henry and anyone else or how's your tearful look just just those is too? I I after that where you know. I don't know what we're GONNA do frontiers. It's like everybody else at that point. It's like I'm waiting. I might wait till to grab P._J.. Hopkinson if you round later I have Hunter Henry and Evan Ingram to pure wide receiver <hes> tight end threats if you will I I just I don't love we'll start with Hunter Henry. I mean first of all. He's really had a hard time staying unhealthy. He missed all of last season right and I just we haven't really seen we've seen stuff from Hunter Henry in spurts right and he's very his touchdown numbers. Were really high as rookie or they touchdowns if he. Gets the snaps he is going to be hit. His upside is great if he can get the volume being at the snaps if he can get the targets we just haven't seen it to this point in San Diego or Los Angeles if you will so I like him more than ever ingram because I like his upside a little bit more than Evan Ingram. I like the chargers offense better than the giants offense obviously but I think these two are very I think that the the variances greater with these two especially Hunter Henry I think he's got more boom bust potential. We've seen him have weeks where he has two touchdowns. I've seen him have weeks where he basically puts up zero bomb yeah. Sometimes I just don't understand these eighty ps I mean are people literally only swinging for the fences and just like just completely content with just whipping. I mean Hunter Henry missed all twenty eighteen right didn't do it is intend to anything the previous years he was a nice player but not a great player because Philip rivers like some of the elite quarterbacks passes the ball around so much so he was a nice player he wasn't Kelsey or Gronk any of his first two seasons so he misses an entire year and somehow is so getting drafted early six six round right now in team league I just I don't understand the A._D._p.. Now in terms of caliber player is he above just about everyone else as he should be in this last here that you have I agree because this upside is higher but that doesn't mean he should be going into six round again other discussion for different day his his pedigree and that team he's got some upside there for sure and he'll be heading into his. I don't know I guess technically is fourth year or you know his third playing ear so yeah yeah I think this rounds out my tears because hundred Henry and everything or to me while I don't love of either one of them. I think you can look at each of them and say okay. I have my starting tight end granted. Oh probably be still be my we the weakness on my team. It might my worse starter but I have a starting caliber tight end that I'm at least gonNA start every single week because they have upside after that. It's it's pretty much. You're streaming tight ends. You're drafting multiple tight ends in you know playing it by committee so I. I don't know what you WANNA do for the next exteriors I mean it will. I is there anybody else that I left out that you would include in this year. I would probably include in that tier. I wouldn't take them before. I don't know I wouldn't necessarily put him his own tear. This lump them in as the quote tear before the streaming tears. We'll call it is probably jared cook because he had pretty good year last year and with New Orleans I feel like you'll fit that category that you just Kinda described and that is I've got a starter on most most weeks. Not every week is going to be great but a most weeks assuming health you know I can just plug him in there and I think you'll have a decent day so I think I'd throw jared cook in that in there and in that here with my problem Joel Island Promise Jerry Cook is the Saints Really Have Not used tight ends since they had Jimmy Graham and is that a product of them not really having in good tight end or is that just they got a lot of rushing touchdowns with Alvin Kamara. Even though there's no Mark Ingram here you have Michael Thomas who's an absolute beast and they spread the ball around so much I just I think but at this point the draft yeah I I think we look at him as a starter I I think he's kind of lumped in. I look like Jared Cook. David Joko potentially awesome hooper in this range and T._J.. Hopkinson those would be my you know. My grouping of players is that that might follow the next year but I'm not going out on my way to grab any of those players I would. I would consider them with the exception. Maybe Teacher Hawkins and I don't know if you're GONNA start him week one but I think at least second half the season you should be in a position to maybe you know feel like you can start him. Yeah I agree that's why I was like he's kind of behind the other two but kind of fits a category that might deserve its own tears so maybe maybe cook no joke who Hopkinson Hooper might have their own semi. I tear in front of the streamers the but to your point you're definitely not going out of your way for any of these people. No I think we always see the drop off and tight ends pretty quickly every year where you're like okay. I'm not really going on my way. We get the next best tight end because he's not doesn't why doesn't excite me. I'm just GonNa wait until the very end similar to what people do with quarterbacks in one quarterback leagues and I think this year that just starts even earlier and maybe it's partly is not having Gronk you're you you take gronk out a no players Jimmy Grammar no longer a factor Jordan Reed is now. We're completely writing him off. So the tight end position shallower Kyle Rudolph is another one who's lower who's kinda fallen own off the face of the Earth for fantasy and I think after after Kelsey urged kittle in maybe Howard you know I could maybe talk myself into take him in the sixth or seventh round but the fifth round is too early after that. I'm just like you know we're overpaying for. Some of these mediocre tight ends like Evan Ingram Hundred Henry Eric Hebron even jared cook in the seventh round jerk cooking the seventh rounds crazy. That's crazy town right crazy town. I mean again. I said the difference between six and thirteen it was like what ten points for the entire year and I guarantee at least fifty seventy five percent of those tight ends were just streamers basically for the most part so to your point is that that's going to wrap up our tight hide ends. We're going to be back four hour quarterbacks. Here's and we're going deep real deep south and I are big to Q._B.. Fans so <hes> we're going to be doing all thirty Q._B.'s.

It is daddy soda time. And I certainly sound like I've had too many daddy sodas, unfortunately, but we will fight through. We will persevere. It is college draft podcast presented by bed. Online dot AG. Just used that glorious promo code podcast one like, you know, how to do very very excited about the show because I am bringing on a colleague Dane Brugge ller from the app. Letting who you check anybody on Twitter. They'll all tell you that Dane is the closest thing in the media to being. An actual NFL scout. And as a result. I highly encourage you to follow him on Twitter at D P Brugge ler a friendly reminder. You can follow me on Twitter at Ross Tucker NFL as well as our entire podcast network at our T F podcast. Here's what's cool too. You can go back and listen to any of the shows that we've had over the last couple of months really over the last year. But certainly over the last couple of months as you are binging to get ready for the first round of the draft, which is nine days away from today. You can always hit me up on Twitter. I'm at Ross Tucker NFL, most of, you know, former NFL offensive linemen and very excited to talk to Dane today about a bunch of different things, including. The beast as well as guys he's higher on than most lower on than most. You also, of course, need to know about my front page story dot com, I'm gonna be briefed. And I'm losing my voice. It's the best mother's day gift. I've ever heard of period, you can get a story written for your wife or your mom get it framed give it to them. They will cry. It's unbelievable. I've seen this many many times now and happy to be affiliated with my front page story dot com and happy to talk to my guy, Dane Brookler. Well, like, I was saying earlier really proud to be a teammate and colleague of this guy is every other draft guru will tell you. He's the closest thing we have to a real NFL scout on the media side. He's also a colleague at the Atlantic. He his stuff is fantastic. I can tell you right now. I have his top ten rankings at each position bookmarked. So when I'm on the radio or I'm on my podcast. I know Danes top ten guys at each position. That's kind of what I work off of. That's how much respect I have for him. Like, I said follow him on Twitter at burglar. And Dane, you you just released the beast that you not. I did yesterday. I appreciate this kind of merge draw. It the draft guy came out yesterday. The passion project something that takes a full year to complete. You know, if you're an NFL droughts fan, I promise you will you will love this publication. I've never had someone come up to me and say there just wasn't enough detail in that. And you know, that's in scouting details matter all the little things not just in the analysis, but you know, all the pro day numbers. Although combine ages, you know, their journey to go from where they started when they first picked up a football until now all of that helps tell the story. And so I think this draft guide has it and the feedback so far has been it's been awesome. So anybody that's interested just if you have an athletic subscription, you get the guide for free. I think we're we're you and I both are a big believer. What we're doing that ES letting the draft guide just kind of perked to say, thank you. Absolutely unbelievable that you get that with your with your athletes subscription now. So I mean, the fact subscription is worth it for a million different reasons. But the beast is certainly one of them before I get deigned some of the guys that you're higher and lower on then the consensus because that's what I've been doing the last couple of weeks with guys like Kyle crabs and Matt Miller, it's interesting 'cause most of the guys I have to ask them who they're higher or lower on then. But for you, I can see your rankings. And so I know who you're higher on your lower than that a lot of the folks out there. I am curious with Russell Wilson signing the huge contract that he did this morning. How much time do you spend Dane if any looking back at prior drafts and seeing where you were right where you were wrong and how you can improve. And and maybe what? You might have missed. I think the extremely important. I think for in evaluator, the the most important trait that you could have is be itself evaluating understanding. You know, what you've got right. What you got wrong where you need to get better, you know, because the NFL it's an voting league. And so is scouting. And so you have to evolve which you're looking for what has worked at the NFL level. I we we've always had these thresholds every year. It seems like they change meal. Certain barriers are getting broken in terms of what you look for the quarterback position. We know what you look for, you know, once all it takes is one player to overcome that stigma, and all of a sudden that changes the way you think of things in you know, is not you can look at the NFL and say, okay. Well, no longer is there only one or two prospects that this size or this speed that are doing it. Well, now, you know, several overcoming, you know, some of the shortcomings that they have. And it really changes the way you look at things. So. Absolutely going back and looking at okay, we're nine this. Why did I miss and then, you know, project enough or not not over correcting yourself, but going back and just understanding certain little critical factors making sure you're incorporating and your future scouted. Was. So obviously Russell Wilson's thing was the size. I forget Dane what it what did you think of Mahomes? It I wasn't. You know, I didn't think Mahomes was a no doubt top ten pick. Or you know, I I liked him. I thought he was you know, a going to be an NFL quarterback. I just I didn't think that we'd be seeing this. And honestly from the outside looking in this is where a lot of us when we talk about the quarterback position. We're gonna disadvantage because so much evaluating quarterbacks is the intangibles. And you know, it's it's one thing to look on tape and say that a player can do this or that. But in say the case of a Patrick Mahomes. So much depends on how did you do with the whiteboard? Fully understanding, we're mentally his development is he's coming from a scheme a conference where it's just so different than what he's asked to do with the NFL level, and you know, similar with collar Murray so much of his evaluation depends on just where is he mentally his develop, but we see the natural passing instincts. We see, you know, his ability to to make. Stuff happened with his arm with his legs with his mind, but just under trying to get a better idea of you know, when defensive speed up will he be able to adjust in the Alabama game? And the Orange Bowl we saw that a little bit where he thinks big twelve competition all year didn't really prepare him for what he was going to see against Alabama and he had to make some of those in game adjustments and he played better in the second half. Then he did the first half against the crimson tide defense. So Kenny continue to do that week in week out at the NFL level for sixteen weeks in a year. It really will be interesting to watch. So let's dive into some of the guys that I can just tell me rankings are higher that you are higher or lower than than it seems like a lot of the other folks out there and we'll start a quarterback, obviously where you still up Dwayne Haskins as your number one quarterback. There was a recent report from Adam Schefter that there are some teams that don't even have Haskins with the first round grade. What is going on here Dame? What what do you see your what do you think? These other teams are seeing. When it comes to quarterbacks beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all it takes is one quarterback or one team to love quarterback. And that's how you know a Christian. Ponder can go talk fifteen and a draft, you know, but Baker Mayfield the Brown, and John Dorsey aren't all in Baker Mayfield. Where does he go in last year's draft? I he might not you probably didn't go the top five picks. So, you know, it just all depends on you know, who's picking where and you know, what they how they do that quarterback with Haskins. I'm believer in the arm. I think he has a velocity the accuracy. I am a believer in what he has above the neck seeing them progress throughout last season is they positive sign only one year simple. Science fourteen starts that certainly is a concern. But I think he is ascending. I think he's getting better and better. And so I'm going to bet on the arm and bent on the mind, I do worry about lower body mechanics his ability to maneuver through pressure. Find a second chance throws. There's. No doubt he needs to get better in that area. But I think it's more experienced based of of an issue more. So than talent based I do think he can get there. So doing asking calamari, I'm not sky high on either of these guys, I think I'd have, you know, Baker mayfield's darnold. Josh rosen. I think all three of those quarterbacks would be ranked higher just based on draft grade if we included last year's draft class of this one, but I do believe Haskins Murray. Both will be NFL starters. It just trying to peg where they're going to land draft day that's tough because I think Carla Marie is going to go one. And then who's going to be the second quarterback drafted. I that it is really tough to figure that out not only who. But when and where and I think it's going to be I think four these quarterbacks talking about Haskins and Murray and lock endanger Jones, I think they're all going to go in the top twenty picks. It's just went and wears going to be tough to figure out. It's interesting to see I don't feel like fourteen even need quarterbacks necessarily. So I'll be very suffering. We're we're they all go, especially I'm assuming some team trade for Josh Rosen among those. So what does that do to the draft board? What about the running back position? Dane and the one guy stood out to me. There is seems like you have mile Sanders ranked lower than a lot of people. I've heard people talk about mile Sanders as maybe the best back. Maybe the second best back. I've obviously watched a lot of him. And you know to see you have at eight I thought was interesting just based on comparing that to everybody else seems Milan higher. Yeah. I over the last month. I I've watched a lot more miles standards and he's actually number number four and my guide. I one thing that really worries me the fumbles he fumbled. Once every thirty four touches in college. That's a huge security concern to you know, he didn't carry the rock a lot. But when he did get the football. He was productive the average that are six years for Kerry, but the phone bills that's something that he really needs to get better at I think he's had upside of the blocker, but needs to get better in that area. So I I think there's a lot of things that when you project them forward kind of similar to Josh Jacobs who another guy who a lot of people have at the top running back doesn't have necessarily sample size that you ideally want but with mile standards. I got a lot of traits that you can hang your hat on and he'll feel strongly about. So I you know, he's I think the the third round is the sweet spot for running back in this year's draft. I, you know, Josh Jacobs. Go somewhere taught forty and then after that a little bit of a, you know, guessing game in terms of these running backs, David Montgomery, mile Sanders, Damian harassm Alabama, Daryl Henderson, Memphis, and they were gonna see a lot of these running back not around range and mile Sanders. Definitely in that mix. Truly interesting, isn't it that you know, the top two quarterbacks arguably top two running backs a really all just one year starters. You know, now, it's not Jacobs fault that he was behind Damian Harris and some of the guys Alabama. It's not really mild Sanders falters behind saquon Barkley and even the quarterbacks, you know, Ohio saying Oklahoma both had really good quarterbacks. But I I don't ever remember that, you know, Dane, wear right? The top two quarterbacks and the top two running backs. Arguably all really only played the lion share their snaps that year. Yeah. No. There's no question. That's where and you go back to nineteen Seventy-three. There have been a hundred quarterbacks drafted in the top or in the first round. And only three of them had fourteen starts or fewer at the college level so small sample size. Those guys were Cam. Newton Mitchell Trubisky and Mark Sanchez. And so it doesn't happen. Very often. We see for quarterbacks with a small sample size go that high running back a little different. But it's still rare to see these guys with so few exp-. It's a little experience go early, but it's going to happen this year. And so I know there's no question. It really isn't interesting dynamic and the and really you could probably throw, you know, a guy like Kay Metcalf in their marquees Brumby Deke Metcalf, the injuries we haven't seen a huge sample size Mortiz Brown only a two year guy at the FBI level. So yeah, there's several guys and so learning about their background and their experiences and why the small sample size. That's definitely part of the process and figuring these guys out. So let's get to the receivers to jump out to me. And I'm looking I should probably pull up the beast. Dane. But I I've always had your top ten bookmarked for a while. So I don't know how much. Update them. But I do know that that you are very high on decay Metcalf. And there seems to be a wide variety of opinions on him. Why do you like him so much? Well, I mean, I liked Iki Metcalf. But he's number twenty seven overall on my top one hundred board. So I don't love him necessarily in the top twenty five. I think there's in the late first round became Metcalf. Murky Brown AJ Brown. I think those three guys that late. I run discussion with Metcalf just either physical freak six three and a half two hundred twenty eight pound for true, four three athlete. I do worry about just the route tree, and he doesn't play a strong. The looks of thoroughly at the catch point. And so he just need to fine. Tune some things, and I think he'll eventually get there. But it's a projection and you have to really project a lot with decay Metcalf, and including thing healthy and thing on the football field. So anything somewhere in the league first round is where I would have him. But I I don't think there's really any receiver in this raft in the top some fifteen or twenty picks that necessarily I would I would drive any. It's a really strong group in the middle. And. Second third round the guys like Peres Campbell and deebo Samuel Nikiel hairy. The all these guys day two picks that you can find value. So it'll be interesting the over under is two receivers in the first round. I I'm probably taking the under. It's hard to kind of peg where these some of these receivers are gonna go in the late. I. What about Hakeem Butler from Iowa State? I know at one point he was not in your top ten years some other people they talk about him like he's the number one wide receiver and they love him. I mean, he might be the guy with the biggest difference of opinion, depending on who you talk to. Yep. No question, and he finished number nine overall my board or among the white receivers number nine receiver. And I have a second third grade on them. I say believe he's sixty two overall on my board. I there's a lot to like I mean, you're talking about a guy that's over six five. He's close to hundred thirty pounds long arms. Ran a sub four or five forty or dash really athletic a rangy playmaker. I just when you watch them on film. I just I really struggled with the rouse. He's not consistently getting open. I I think he's gonna struggle with the jump that you know, compared to what he's seeing bay twelve foreigners when he faces NFL corners. It's just gonna be a lot tougher for them. And some of these splashy downfield plays. He's fifty fifty bowls. They're just they're not gonna be there in the NFL because then a decent the back you're going to take them away. So I I think it's going to be tougher for them. I think that side then let them that ability. He's still going to get his he's going to make some plays. But. I think people expecting a number one receiver. I just don't see that. I think he could be quality number two number three guys going to make some plays downfield. But I I just don't see any consistency to for him to be a true number one or just to be anything close to that. And you know, the hands the drops the inconsistencies and route runner. I mean, those are really the big reasons why. Let's move onto the big boys. Dane, and a guy that a lot of people seem to think is the number one offense of tackle is John Taylor. I don't know where he finished up for you. I know at one point he was number four for you. Where did you want finish up? And what do you think of him? Finish the three. I a big believer in Jona Williams. He's number one for me than Andre Dillard. And number two and then joined Taylor three would would Taylor. And unfortunately, we haven't he hasn't had a chance to work out. Really this this Predrag process because the hamstring and so the medical are going to be huge onto one Taylor. Just to make sure that the you know, because if he gets the clean Bill of health he's going to go the top fifteen somewhere. It shouldn't matter of you know, doctors signing off not every medical staff is going to be comfortable with with his medical history. But with with John Taylor big boy, six five hundred twelve pounds. You know, he's the guy that's carried close to four hundred pounds in his past. And so, you know, just controlling that weight will be important for him. He technique needs to improve. But he's a human shield because he has the foot quickness where he can stay controlled stay in front of pass rushers needs to develop his hand us. So he can. Better use that length of his a lot of body to body blocks on tape. But you know, we still get the job done able to anchor. He's able to generate that power from his hips and his core. So he can really be a point of attack bully in the run game. And then hold up at the past protector. So he's he's coming along as the guy that will be continued to improve want to get some NFL coaching under his Bill. And so there's just a lot of leg from the foundation traits than he offers a lot a lot of the issues that you get hung up on or more technique driven. And but still able to get by with just the natural traits. What about on the defensive side of the ball? I don't know where he finished up. But I know one point you had Montas sweat a decent amount lower than allow the other folks out there as an edge rusher. Yeah. It was fun to sweat. I think he finished number three Ed edge rushers for me. I big believer in what he's done threatens pre-draft processed going to the senior bowl and being the best player there. You know, going at the combine and performing like he did it six five and a half two hundred sixty pounds over thirty five inch arms and then going out running in the four fours and looking smooth in the positional drills. So you in with months has wet you want a guy that what was any Pachauri or you want a guy that checks the box for production? Okay. Well, months has sweat double digit sacks each of the last two years and the SEC the only person the only player with more sacks among power five teams. Last two years is Josh Josh island from Kentucky so month. That's what has the production. He has the tree. Obviously, you just look at the the testing numbers that he probably combine. And then the tape. I thought he really improved as a run stopper this year compared to his junior film. So he got better just walking down the edge setting the edge. Funneling runs back inside. And then at a pass rusher. Those long strides really he's not a natural Bendery's not Brian burns where he had that easy, Ben. But he has that length where he can bend forward us that Ford lead get blockers on their heels create that movement convert that speed the power and just that's those long strides. Those first two steps he's able to capture the corner. So that's big for a player like Montas wet big question will be for him. Just, you know, making sure the background checks out. Okay. Had some issues at Michigan state mostly related to marijuana things. Like that. That's why he only spent two years Michigan state before a year at Juku and then Mississippi State, and then just the heart condition, which was flagged at the at the combine I've talked to team they pulled me low risk not something that should affect him too. Much on draft day. So I think months has sweated really confirms himself at the top ten pick in this draft. Anybody else deigned because I'm going through your your picks. And those are the ones that jump out to me in terms of just going through your rankings, and where guys ended up is there anybody else that I know you don't spend a lot of time looking at other people's mock drafts or other people's rankings. But there anybody else that you are particularly high on that maybe isn't getting as much attention or as much love as you think they should. But I think one guy certainly Gilani to buy from Hawaii linebacker. He's a day to pick who just don't your impact about enough. And a big part of that is he's out of sight outta mind. He had shoulder injury this past year. So he senior year was ended abruptly that he wasn't able to work out. The senior bowl was named work out of the combine because of that shoulder, but this is a player at six to two hundred fifty pounds. Just a smooth athlete. He has inside out versatility. He has three down potential you watch Hawaii. And he's rushing the passer he's covering ground against the run. He's dropping and coverage. He can do a little bit of everything. I think he's a modern day linebacker type of linebacker that you should be on thirty two draft boards because he's skiing versatile. I think he's gonna surprise people when he the day to draft pick and goes higher than a lot of people think I think that the corners are definitely I think there's. Some you know, a lot of differing opinions on the order these Cornerbacks in this draft. I'm a lot higher on Sean bunting from central Michigan than a lot of people over six foot hundred ninety five pounds, four four athlete. A former gray shirt who was receiver. They moved the corner. I he's a covering clobber type of corner. And I think there's a lot of like with him and his natural traits. Some of these other corners, just laid from Michigan state. I'm a little higher on than others. So I think you know, it's the corner class is going to be interesting. We might not see a corner in the first twenty five picks. And we can't say the last time that's happened with nineteen seventy four. So I it's not happen. A long time, but none of these corners or a law, but the top twenty five now, we could see, you know, the dealers at twenty or the Texan that twenty three raider the twenty four we could certainly see one of these corners. Whether it's Byron Murphy reading Williams, maybe raucous in wouldn't be surprised if he the first corner drafted. We could see one of these guys talk twenty five just because of the importance of physician, and you know, the the career, you know, temperature of the league in the past happy offenses, but I think that this corner clouds there's a lot of volatility in terms of the rankings. And how teams these guys? You can tell why he's the man and why you need to follow him on Twitter at DP Brookler and make sure you got nine days really to peruse the beast. They call it over at the athlete. You can go right to Danes Twitter handle click on the link right there. You will not be disappointed. Dane, thanks so much for the time. Really? Really? Appreciate it. As always enjoyed it. Thanks for us. Thoroughly enjoyed that conversation. Hopefully, you guys did as well. And now, you got even more draft tidbits from dean, you can go ahead and say, you know, what I'm going to place a wager on the draft at bed online dot AG using the promo code podcast one or perhaps maybe you just want to bet on.

We have college football was wild man. Let's start in Austin Texas with Lsu. Joey football looks like a heisman candidate Joe Brady's. He's all fence is opened up their spending all over the yard in record setting fashion and it was amazing. Joe Borough did he's gone from the thought process nationally that he's a game manager. Just don't lose the game to this guy that on third and seventeen throws this unbelievable dark and and whilst the entire nation it's as if this new offense has given him an opportunity to show what is a unique skill set. We knew that he was tough as Pecker Lips. We knew he was a unique leader. We knew he kind of had his own corky way of going about things and that he was perfect for Lsu football absolutely perfect perfect for the by you and for playing for Coho but now brady comes in institutes offense that everybody's been waiting for for deft seems like like decades they all these athletes arguably the most athletic talent in a country every single year right up there with the Bama's in the Clemson's and the Ohio states states etc etc and they just they never did diversify their offense and now they have. That's remarkable to see what's happened. That's the crazy part is. It sounds like they went and got like an. NFL team they went in science and players and drafts and players brought new coach. It's the same guys it's just a new concept and it. It just shows that these guys had it in them. You Know Joe Berlinger could have done it if they went to style was just a matter of they needed to bring the coach to you know employ this philosophy philosophy well. It's working and I can't wait to see how their season transpires and unfold as we go because now the narrative is is there okay the top four in the country right now in the latest eight people is this a year that they can put it all together and and and unseat Alabama in sec you see west. It'll be fun to see. I can't wait and that's just one team. That is really exciting. Clemson still looks like Clemson. They had a tremendous performance at home home against Texas A. and M. Jimbo Fisher. I expected a closer game. Ultimately Clemson wins by two touchdowns and that embarrassment of riches offensively offensively just continues to grow and thrive and Mesh and one thing that Clemson didn't get enough credit for a year ago was how those wide wide receivers consistently and continually win fifty fifty balls they make unbelievable catches one-handed here one handed there and Justin Ross and T. Higgins are just freaks of nature. I mean they're both six four six five big big young men huge wing spans and they make these highlight catches all the time and then there's Trevor Lawrence whose tools or rather obvious travis behind him. Maybe the best running back in the country so oh you expect a lot outta them. They beat. AM rather handily and so now you look down the road of their schedule and you go okay who who's left we we kinda felt like this might be the year syracuse made some noise in the ACC. They CLEMSON is heading to Syracuse on Saturday to the carrier. Dome but Syracuse is fresh shelf just getting blown out by Maryland. What coach locks these doing up. There is impressive with Josh Jackson a quarterback they hang what was it travis sixty eighty three. They score sixty three points last weekend. They have been just an offensive juggernaut the past two weekends. I'm filibustering bring right now so I can figure out how much they've scored the past two weekends. They scored sixty three sixty three to twenty and then the we scored sixty three points on Syria and the week before it was Howard but I don't care you scored seventy nine seventy nine is still a lot of points of seventy nine week one sixty three weak to extremely impressive start for Maryland and and and so it'll be interesting to see what Syracuse can do in response to that loss Dino Babar's really good football coach. I'm sure he'll have the boys ready to welcome the defending national champions town and the biggest thing Dabo Sweeney Jessica Tony Elliott on the offensive side of the ball Brent Venables on the defensive side side of the ball what they have to guard against complacency and that's not easy to do. I remember in two thousand seventeen when coach. Saban told me after Alabama lost the Iron Bowl Auburn did one of the most difficult things to do when you coach any. Li Program is remind these young men that they can be beaten to to convince them. Am Look don't get complacent. You can get your tail whipped and that's what coach Saban guards against because they win so often in Alabama and it's what Sweeney will need to guard against. I I don't see them having a letdown but in the past clemson at times has been susceptible to that we we saw it when Pitt beat him a couple years ago. Syracuse has gotten them and they had a near Miss Against NC state. I remember too so it's something to remember and something to keep an eye on for the Tigers as they continue throughout the year. I hope someone can beat them because I'd prefer if it gets that they wouldn't be either 'cause they're. GonNa get well leads us into Michigan. of course you're going onto laughing. Do you have on your the shirt. No I'm at work. I'd be a little professional. I've a button on Michigan's to know but they took overtime to beat army last weekend and and they ultimately win the game but to me Josh Gad is comes in and he's running offense there with shape Patterson in behind center Dylan McCaffrey's will and to me. Patterson just doesn't look really comfortable yet and we're waiting on him to progress soon. Become the player that everyone expects and everybody had high expectations for Michigan this year is this year they could potentially really unseat. Ohio state that's TVD but Ohio state looks like an offensive fireworks display with Justin fields it is I'm last week. The first week of was a little let down after the twenty ninth and then dropped off last week in Cincinnati which everyone was building building up and I think it could have been one of those weird games just fields out there and just put on a show and watching him. Riley needs to in those receivers ever. I think everyone ruined thought Peres Campbell Terry McClure and he's out there with the Redskins coin touchdowns. Now it'll be at trauma. There isn't a drop off and the big ten still goes through Columbus us. I mean we'll see but here's Joe thing both Michigan. They get the bye week this week. Khun Josh Patterson Shape Harrison get things going because they have to go to Wisconsin the following week which is almost impossible places to play in all of college football camper and they'll get rowdy. It's a noon game but it'll still be rowdy because all they'll be right yeah. They got their cheese. Sr takes yeah. It's like a guy told me a penn state that day walked up to me and cry out hat on one of those hats that has ear flaps on it carrying. Something called Mr mcgillicuddy. I don't even know what kind of liquor was but he offered me some and his about seven. Oh five in the morning I said no sir I'm good. He goes come Omar. You can't drink all day unless you start in the morning and I guarantee you. There'll be starting in the morning Camp Right. He's not wrong in that. I know how to get down.

I don't need to unwind big tomato juice. Kinda guy though tomato products give me heartburn yeah yeah. That's one of the only things that give me heartburn pizza. I don't eat pizza. People think a second for yeah. I was GONNA say because it gives me heartburn. Winslow winslow had pizza. I don't know I can't answer that question. I'm not sure I spent a little while I will. I will say this sometimes. We're this restaurant in in Charlotte. Here's our family loves frequent called bricks. wood-fire pizza and bricks has a buffalo chicken pizza. Oh that's it's the best yes it's grilled. It's grilled chicken like kind of pulled chicken and it's on this pizza and the base. The pizza is buffalo sauce. Dude you talk about unbelievably simply delicious. That's the ticket. That sounds amazing. It is amazing. We love we try to offset it because we'll split a salad.

Tim tebow Marcus Spears are boy bury them and for the first time a hosted SEC nation Laura Rutledge of course out maternity. Leave and doctors have disallowed her the opportunity to travel at this time so in the chair I a win and we go up to Columbia and it's a huge game up there because coach boys lost to Wyoming weak one they desperately needed a victory in week two you and they welcomed West Virginia town. I had the opportunity to have coffee with coach owed him on Friday morning and he kind of talked to me about how he put put that. Wyoming loss on his shoulders coaches are at to say that but I wondered why they didn't tackle especially will and I said to him why. Why is it your fault if you didn't tackle especially well and he's like well. I guess we didn't try. We didn't practice enough during spring are three to he said well. We didn't practice it enough during camp and and so they really needed a victory and ultimately they got it thirty eight to seven over West Virginia but I was pretty well consumed with a new venture her hosting. Sec Nation taught me a whole lot about what that jobs about it skyrocketed my respect for folks like Laura and and Reese Davis and Chris Fowler who make that kind of show which is a rare kind of show live for multiple hours live audience a lot of moving parts parts. It just made my respect for them which was already very high skyrocket. You have so much common at you so fast it's reading. It's moving from an offset location to start the show and interviewing coach. Odem to the set. It's reading full screens. It's reading videos. It's reading graphics. It's making sure that you're setting marcus and tim up on these amazing discussions with great passion Russian and expertise and you're listening to the producer in your ear. Thank God forbear and Miller my producer. He's brilliant. That's one of the hardest things I think people. Don't I don't understand is they watch a show and they just think that you're talking. They don't realize that a lot of times. There's somebody in your ear telling you okay. You're going to pivot here and go do this. You're GONNA talk about dot com the entire time while you're trying to talk you're also trying to listen to what year co host are saying and the audience has no idea what's going on in your ears right and and I've never done it ever and I did not do any rehearsals. They turned on the cameras and we went and it was such a unique experience for me. I I was anxious. I didn't sleep at all on Friday night before the show and I was very blessed and appreciative that I got to do sports center on Saturday morning just to be on camera and kind of remove some of those jitters and so then we got started on nation and it felt like the only only way I know how to describe it accurately in my Nascar people understand what I'm saying is like driving a loose racecar where the rear end wants to come out from under you like you're you're on ice. It's like it's like driving a loose race car for four hundred laps where you're wrecking loose every corner and doing your absolute damnedest not the stuff that the thing in fence while going entirely to fast and having the absolute time of your life. I had so much fun. It went so fast. Ask Two hours felt like two minutes. We moved to a bunch of different locations which was unique. It's not something that happens every show and I couldn't couldn't have more fun. I felt so comfortable that I had baron that. I had tim and Marcus and of course this coming weekend. We'll have finebaum as well and I I just feel so fortunate to have the opportunity but again the number one lesson that I learned is I love to talk ball and and when you're watching those shows those hosts are absolutely brilliant at what they do. There's so many moving parts okay. Let's read this graphic nick then. We're going to have this discussion. We're going to throw out to this reporter with this coach then. We're GONNA discuss what that coach said then. We're going to bump this. What's coming up. Let's read this graphic. Let's it's it's wild man. It's wild and again. Barron held my hand. I'm so appreciative for that. I'm going to try to do better this coming weekend and Kentucky. I'm going to try to make it more conversational and have a blast but man did I learned are you. Are they going to let you talk to cash Daniel. Because if not I'm my boycott this week. Does he seem to mention any time that our board cash money is involved. We're talking about Joey football. Oh ball earlier. He's offensive captain for the Mardi McGee. All American team cash Daniels our defensive captain on the morning McGee all-american team. I can't wait to see Liam. He's our dude and and I do hope to get to chat with him. Absolutely we also unveiled a new new kind of segment. We're doing called SWAG session because because we all love uniform so much we love Gear we love jerseys helmets so we decided to debut this this new segment and and it was awesome. I put on the uniform and acted like the dummy which is apropos and spears and Tibo kind of went through the uniform selection from Missouri they had white helmet black jerseys white pants black socks white cleats and the funniest part was speirs told me I looked like a kicker on the top Anna Pop Warner player my legs look Pop Warner player. They are kind of skimming because you're skinny and you're also when you stand next to swag and Tibo. It also just kind of of magnifies. I'm about half of those to make. Some big boys man some big boys. I'll tell you another thing about Missouri. They got brand new state of the art weight room and it's awesome. I mean it's beautiful. It's it's stunning T at. Tim and I went in there to work out and it was wild man. Ah His influence just blows my mind. It just blows my mind it to watch Missouri Players Lana. Just shake his hand and get a photograph. Graf and him give them so much. Tommy went in there to work out. I'm not sure if he got the opportunity to get a workout because he spent so much time talking to those young men and I just demar him admire his influence. It's so dramatic of course he has his night to shine and that is one of the most impactful nights of the year every every year and if you don't know about night to shine make sure you look it up because what Tim does during that event changes lives loves it. Just it change millions of lives all over this globe. What a special person but anyway enough when you were working right now but I I saw the video you posted and they have that hill with the turfed as you push on the sleds up that or did you did not chose against I did actually I don't lift legs eggs. A ton OP started in the last couple of weeks. I actually did it today. Today's Tuesday just got done hosting college football live. I have have all the cal fans mad at me because cow B. U. Dub this past weekend and I felt like that was an upset and I brought it up on college. Football live and and pollock is like do you last year. I'm like I know but it's Chris Peterson Jacob Mason. You expect down. West cal and so the cow people are all angry at me. I understand join the long list of teams and fans get mad at you on a weekly basis they can they can they can be mad at me are specter anger but you know speaking of a team that normally don't fan bases at nominal love me. I WanNa Talk Tennessee for a minute they have had a very difficult opening part of the season their own to do they lose to Georgia state one of the if not the then one of the most embarrassing losses in the history of the program and then week two they lose to Byu both those games were at home and that's tough and Jeremy Pruitt said you remember titanic. Remember when titanic like when chips going down at both going down all the mice run to the top of the boat you found out who wants to be at Tennessee and who don't and that's kind of where they all right now. It's been a tough year but I'll tell you something man. Tennessee fans did something that filled up my tank and the kindness that they exuded exuded was so such an inspirational gesture such a kind gesture. There was a young schoolboy in Florida who for collegiate Spirit Day a it is school wore a homemade orange. Ut T shirt he made it himself. White paint did a ut on the t shirt and he got knocked. He got bullied. You've got made fun of at school because he had on this homemade t shirt well. Tennessee responded in the nation responded in a big way. One of the local businesses started mass producing that shirt and they mass-produced shirt her and the vall nation bought more than sixteen thousand of those shirts to support that young boy who got bullied and that's an example of of kindness that reminds us that in the face of hate kindness always wins and I am so appreciative of that Vol nation listen. I know that we frustrated gas sometimes without analysis of your team. This is analysis of humanity and you are first class esteemed in that capacity. Did you see where the thank you for that example. They have that giant rock on the campus to and they went and painted it and they the logo that the kid had on his t shirt. That's that's what they painted on that rock to which is pretty cool. I've actually met Peyton Miller the young lady who actually paints that rock and I interviewed her once on sportscenter. She's wildly talented insanely talented. I think she's a pre med graduate. I think she's in medical school right now or something like that unbelievably really talented so thank you again vol nation for that example you are to be commended appreciated and championed for that reminder after that we should be kind to one another the next time.

Big Blue Big Board: Top 10 Positional Preview Part 1 - Offense

"Uh-huh. Welcome to the big big word Bod cast. I am Dan position. Join to your back. Chris flung, Chris how you doing today doom pretty good. We're in the homestretch. We are draft week. It is happening this week in in a few days distressed needs to have happened like two weeks ago. But it's close it's close we're getting close. So we are in final preparations for this rat. And today we are going to be running down our positional top ten's, a Chris and I both listed out our top ten at each position. You're going to go over them talk to each other about some of the differences in our top tens, and then this is going to help us to put together a combined big board. We're going to put out on big blue view little later in the week before the draft. So all of this is coming down to our. Our final preparations, and we could not be more excited for this draft to get here. So all we're going to do here is rundown are positional top tens. I we're going to start on offense. And there's one place where we can start their position we've talked about quite a bit. So after we run through our top ten's. Maybe we don't need to talk about it quite as much as we have in the past. But let's just start with quarterback all run down. My top ten verse. So QB one obviously clearly collar Murray and go Dwayne Haskins will Greer drew lock. Then I go Ryan Finley Akiba five Brit Rippin cube six Daniel Jones key, seven Jordan, Tian new acuity, eight garner Minhsiu QB nine and Caja Castillo at QB ten Chris. Let's dig into your top ten. Okay. So obviously, I have my tie. Top four are the same as yours. Kyla Murray win Haskins will Greer Andrew lock. I think those four are basically head shoulders above everybody else. I start to diverge from you get to QB five mine is jerked stem out of Auburn than I have Ripken. Ryan Finley Daniel Jones, Ed, Jordan, Jammu and Tyree. Jackson Durant out my top ten. One of the interesting is big differences. We had is you have Jared stood him as QB five. I do not have him in my top ten to one of my problems with him. He was just too inaccurate. For me to really like. I think that's a problem with basically any quarterback after like QB four here. And drew lock. I think is teetering on even that. But it has deep ball ability that I think that makes him the clear QB four. What does the price is after all of this talk that we've had I am technically higher than you on Daniel Jones. He was my seven is your QB eight obviously, the NFL is going to be way higher on him. Then either one of us are we both see him as kind of a mid round developmental prospect. The NFL is going to see him as a potential starter in the first round. But I think it's kind of Ogle. After all of this item out just a Ted higher on Daniel Jones than you do. Yeah. Well as people who've read my work for a while. No. When I pick a hill. I pick it hill, dammit. And right now, I have Daniel Jones as a fourth round quarterback on my board as far as I'm concerned, or at least my read on him is that his stealing is basically a backup quarterback a guy who. You will probably be great in the quarterback room great locker room and with his athletic traits could probably come in. If you're starter gets hurt or if you're blowing team out and either be at best a human cigar as you take victory lap or maybe run around and help you scrape out a win. But that's about all I see from him. If I was GM, I would probably have Jarret stidham behind. Brit Rabin and Ryan Finley in the third round. However, I do believe he will probably get overdrafted based on just his physical traits. Str- has a strong arm. He can run, and I think scouts will be able to hang their hats on that while coaches can look at him in college say, wow, that Auburn offense gave him just no opportunity for. For growth, I can work with that. Yes. They don't be interesting because you do hear about the Auburn scheme allot, and he here that also Daniel Jones thing where you hear about his supporting cast. But I think two things can be true. I think the Auburn offense could have been bad stood him was also bad the same thing for Daniel Jones. His supporting cast could be terrible. And it was, but he was also bad in addition to that. So when I looked at the on target percentages per sports info solutions for all of these quarterbacks student came out as the worst among the fourteen quarterbacks. I looked at an accuracy from one to ten yards. He was pretty good in eleven to twenty. And then was also terrible. Twenty one yards and deeper. Dana Jones is interesting, and we're probably going to have to talk about him later in the week because he might be giant the so we don't need to get too far into him. But a lot of what you hear about him is how good he can be in India. Sure. Short quick dam, which is fine. And that's true. He was a really pretty highly inaccuracy there put he was one of the worst inaccuracy from eleven to twenty yards that intermediate range, and he was also bad in accuracy. Twenty one yards down the field where further and you hear a lot about how so much of the NFL is in that short area. In like, seventy percent of throws happen within ten yards of blonde scrimmage, and that is true. But so much of the value happens past ten yards past the line of scrimmage to. Well, the most of the volume happens in the short game the value really happens past that. So you need to be good in both places. So with Jones, I just don't see the upside. And that's why I still think of him as like this mid around developmental prospect that I don't think has the upside of potential starter. And I think that's kind of where we are. That's where we'd been on Jones for quite a while. That's still. Through all of this evaluation. I think the more I've dug into the more I feel about that. So that's where we are here. Let's dive into running back real quick, which since this is a giants focused podcast. We don't have to spend too much time on because it is the draft. And we need to get a sense of all of these players in their values. But we'll go over our top tens and really not talk about running backs much at all. Although it could be interesting because looking at our tens they do differ a little bit. But I'll go through my tangible quick Daryl Henderson running back at of Memphis as my running back one. I think that is very different to of a lot of running backboards, but I like him a lot. He has good vision. Good burst. Can catch the ball. Also, which is good, and trivial Williams is number two. Just Jacobs is running back three Justice hill. Oklahoma state is four mile Sanders at Penn State is five. Benny Snell out of Kentucky is six single Terry. Of a U is seven divine zig. Bow out of Nebraska is eight the miles Gaskin for Washington is nine and James Williams at a Washington state for me is running back ten. I actually can't argue with having Darrell Henderson high on your word. I believe I have him as my RB four. My top five are Josh Jacobs out of Alabama mile Sanders at Penn State, Devon single -tary out of FAU. Daryl Henderson and then Justice hill at of Oklahoma state. Like, you said this is giants focused five guest. We are trying to do these this big board from the giants point of view. So if the giants drifting away running back it should be late in the draft. And most of these top guys shouldn't be in consideration. I actually my two favorite running backs in this class are single Terry. Daryl Henderson, just because they both are just absolute pinballs. Both of them are almost impossible to bring down they squirt through holes. They shouldn't be able to get through. They bounce off tacklers left right and center, and they're just a lot of fun to watch. I have mile Sanders injustice hill up pretty high. Because I believe they both have just the physical traits to be. Good productive pretty much every down runners in the NFL. This is not an ethnic running back class. But those two are probably the two best athletes in the class. Then my bottom five or Damian Harris from Alabama David Montgomery, who I could I wouldn't hate higher because his contact balance is just off the charts. Rodney Anderson Avoca Homa leisha Holyfield out of Georgia. And then finally finally Benny Snell out of Kentucky, I mostly just focused on guys who if they're not going to be well rounded running backs at least give you one thing and with Montgomery deaths contact balance with Holyfield in Snell. That's just their ability to punch at defense. They are very violent runners. So that's pretty much where I am with my running back board. Yeah. That makes sense. I think I focused more on contributions in the past game which few have heard talk about offense at all. Should not surprise you. I think the interesting year is of our ten I think we have for each that are not on each other's boards. My running back to Trayvon Williams is not in your top ten. So I think that's just kind of interesting to go forward. But again running back not really position of interest for the giants, which is what most of you are listening for. So what's move to a position debt might be of some interest that is wide receiver. So I'll run down my top ten Akeem Butler is wide receiver one decay Metcalf at two JJ are Sega Whiteside from Stanford at three Emmanuel hall from zuri at four marquees Brown from Oklahoma five AJ Brown from old miss at six. Andy is a Bill of UMass at seven Nikki. He'll Harry from Arizona state at eight Terry MC Warren from Ohio State at nine and Gary Jennings from West Virginia at ten Chris. Why let's let's dig into us. Yeah. My top five decay Metcalf at one and kill Harry to AJ Brown. Three JJ or Siga Whiteside or and Hakeem Butler five I mostly have keen Butler down that are because of just the consistency of his hands. Which is also a problem with UK Metcalf. But he is just he is just a rare athlete and those guys get drafted highly kill, Harry, he is interesting to me because his yards after catch ability just seems to come out of nowhere. You know, he's very strong. He has great balance and greet vision. So I could see offense especially in offense. Like the giants drafting him and then trying to get creative with him in the short intermediate. Yuck. Game eighty Brown. He is just a good all around receiver to me, and we both like JJ Ortega Whiteside. Yeah. I'm happy. Rebirth. Have him in in the top top four technically glad neither one of us are overthinking decay Metcalf. He is a physical freak. I don't really care about his three Cohen, and whether he can bend or not he can win where it matters that is downfield on he can moss moss TV's, he's going to be an explosive downfield receiver, and then you can work off that you can have the comeback. You can have the curls. Those are fine. He doesn't need to be running intricate routes if he's gigantic and running a four three. Obviously he can develop that and that can come. But if it doesn't he still going to be a very useful wide receiver. And there's the players who were like that. Like he had a better three Coen than Steve Smith Carolina, Steve Smith, not New York Giants Steve Smith. But I think we think it was seeing Smith as as a pretty all around decorative wide receiver. No one thought he can't bend in run. Of course, he's is more compacted ground than than decay. Bet Kathy's decay Metcalf is going to be very good. I also I don't really worry about his hands or his drops. I think if he's targeted enough the big plays of going to come. I think the same thing about Hickey Butler. I believe the same thing about Emmanuel hall. That's why I'm so high on him and not a bunch of other people or he does have some drop issues. But I think he wins so easily down the field, and you could also win in the short intermediate areas. I think he brings enough value. He's number one in this class in target yards. Added which of course, is how much overseer adds to an offense compared to win a quarterback throws to anyone else on the offense almost seven and a half yards difference between win Missouri through to Emmanuel hall per target. And when they threw to everyone else that is insane. So just because of that production. He he's up there for me just moving onto my my second five I have deebo Samuel from South Carolina Kelvin Harmon from NC state marquees Brown from Oklahoma, India's Abella from UMass and Paris Campbell from Ohio State DO Samuel. I've been pretty consistently high on him throughout the process. I just love his ability to win every level of the field, and you wouldn't expect from a receiver his height, but he dominates in the red zone. He has that ability to just separate at will and win at the catch point. And. Then almost like Victor Cruz when he catches the ball. Then the play starts Kelvin Harmon. I just love again, his body control strong hands and ability to win at the catch. When he almost reminds me of a slower new cop-killer with just the way he is able to the ball out of the air and make circus catches murky. Brown would absolutely be higher for me. If it weren't for the list Frank injury. I just wanna see how how well he recovers from that because his quickness explosion and speed are everything for his game. If he's able to get right and be the player we have seen. He shoots up boards, and he's going to steal if somebody gets him, even I think maybe even in the middle of the second round, Andy Isabela, he's another guy. I think we are both high on. It's just you can't say he's a slot Justice lot receiver just. Session receiver because he is legit track star. He can burn you down the field. Yeah. He won a lot on the outside and you mass. And I think a lot of people see his size and think that he is a slot. But the these not I think I don't wanna say he is Brandin cooks. But in the way that Brandin cooks is not a slot receiver and Isabela is not just a slot receiver. No and just because he's a white receiver. You can't go around just comparing him to add Ataman or kkob or what pretty much most of knowing the New England Patriots slot receivers over the last ten years. He is really dynamic athlete, and he will probably wind up surprising people. Once he gets onto the field in the NFL and Paris Campbell. To me is just another one of these dynamic athletes who can really win after the catch. Sought all the time at Ohio State. Get him the ball with a little bit of space, and he is going to break angles and pick up chunk yardage so Perez Campbell is interesting to me because he will you said he's good after the catch. He's exclusively after the catch. His never death of target was a think four point five is what sports Pollution's had him. So he was getting the ball within five yards of the line of scrimmage almost all the time and had to run he wasn't as to run deep. The very often the percentage of his route that went further than fifteen yards down. The field was thirty two point three percent. Which was the lowest Inish draft glass. A that is kind of insane. So one of the reasons that don't have him in my top ten is because he's so much of a projection to a to the NFL and running actual routes when we talk about someone like decay Metcalf. You can't run routes. He wins down the feel of Peres Campbell wasn't really. We asked to at all. That's why I have Terry. Mclaren ahead of him the other Ohio State wide receiver who didn't get nearly the amount of talk during the season. He has a widow bit. Now, the in the in the project process, he had a great senior bowl showing. And he's he's gotten some hype afterward, but he was much more of the downfield receiver and just for me. And I think looking at the giants offense unless they are going to completely yards after the catch this thing they do need someone who's going to be able to get down the field. Which is why I have the chlorine ahead of Campbell Campbell is just such a projection of what is going to be able to translate from what he was asked to do in college the NFL. Yeah. And I absolutely get that. But I'm also not convinced. The giants aren't going to try to completely act this offense. Yeah. It's totally possible everybody. I'm Neil Patel editor and chief the verge and this is the verge cast. I is the flagship podcast of the verge every week. We cover the latest news and reviews we took a critical look at what is going on now. And next in the world tech show hosted by me, our executive editor debone, not your friend and Paul Miller. It just feels like there's something wrong with all computers, though.

See to just me and Paul ranting each other about the role of government and check us out on Tuesdays when I have seen every episode. Subscribe diverse wherever podcasts or served. We'll see them. So let's move on to tight end a run through by top ten here. TJ Hopkinton, easy, number one. Noah fan also of Iowa tied into herb Smith from Alabama number three of Caleb Wilson from UCLA as tight end four Jay stern burger from Texas. Am is my tight end five triggered west go. From West Virginia is my number six cadence. Smith from Stanford is my number seven foster Moreau from LSU is my number eight Josh Oliver from San Jose State is my number nine and drew sample for Washington is my tight end ten a Chris. Let's get to yours. Okay. Top three are identical again TJ Hodkinson one no offense to I actually I have them pretty close together. And I think it will just come down to who's picking when Hodgkinson's. Size and blocking abilities, set Tim apart. And he is a more. He at least he was a more effective receiver at Iowa. But I think there will be teams that could view no fantasy a better receiving option. But just moving on herb Smith number three that I have Jay stern burger for Trayvon west. Go five Josh Oliver six Dawson knocks at seven foster Moreau at eight Dax Raymond at nine and Isaac NADA at Georgia at ten. So I think the biggest differences between our two wards happen at the bottom five, and I'd say in particular, I've got knocks Moreau and Raymond at seven eight nine I have them there because I think all three of them are fairly similar prospects in that they're they tested out as very athletic for the position. But they're also fairly underdeveloped. It Dawson not is basically. Giant lump of clay at the tight end position. There is a great tight end in there somewhere. It will be up to the team that drafts him to basically mold him into that. But he has all the tools. He's already good blocker good enough. And he has experienced lining up all over the offense of formation. Ole miss used him out at wide receiver. They used him at slot. They use them in line at tight end. They used him out of the backfield is h back. So he's got that experience. He was just a complete afterthought for them yet the where we differ here. And I think the the biggest difference is I have Caleb Wilson as my tight end for you. Do not have them in your top Ted. I think I'd just like his a super good athlete, and he was a very effective at pass catcher. And I liked that projection going forward can get SIS no receiver whether wide receiver tight end had more targets on deep crossing routes than Caleb Wilson date at UCLA last year. He had nine targets which led all all MTA receivers at eight catchable targets, Abe, receptions, one hundred eighty six yards and a touchdown. So when you have someone like that who can win down the field in that area. He's someone I am going to be very high on. And then I think when we get down to the bottom. It's just a little bit of a difference. I think I like cadence myth as possible all around type of guy, and I think drew sample is kind of the same guys who can be blockers can also win too. I think we just have a little bit of a difference on who we value in those areas. But I think we're basically looking at the same things. Yeah. I think so I don't think it's impossible that the giants draft tight end early. But if they don't if they don't want to really move on from red Ellison. I think you maybe one of those fourth round draft picks get a guy who can either push Scott Simonsen or ultimately take over for Ellison in a year or so. Yeah, I think a lot of people have seen my Democtrats that had the giants teach at Hopkinton six that's not necessarily something. I would say they should do. But it was more of just thinking a little outside the box of what they can do. And throwing. From twelve personnel is good. Which is when two tight ends on our on the field because defenses act like that is a run formation. They keep world linebackers on the field. When you have two tight ends who can catch which the giants would have in Haagensen and Ingram, or if you don't have to go to that extreme say a Caleb Wilson and Ingram that you have to tight ends. You can catch you're getting mismatches and throwing from twelve personnel is basically like using play action because the defense ready expects the run. And that's when passing is the best is when the defense thinks you are going to run. So I would not be opposed to drafting a tight end somewhere in those mid rowan's and beefing up the ability to pass out of twelve personnel. So let's on here and go to authentic attack all run down by ten underdo it at Washington state, my authentic tackle one Juwan Taylor from Florida is tackle to Jona Williams from. Obama is tackled. Three Dalton Risne r- at of Kansas state is tackle four Cody Ford from Oklahoma is five of mcgarry from Washington is tackle six next Scharping from northern Illinois is tackle seven for me. Yanni juiced from West Virginia is tackle eight. Greg little from ole miss is tackle nine and Bobby Eddin's is tackled. Ten four me. And Chris what is your Ted? Okay. So I have join Williams from Alabama one. John Taylor, Florida to under a Dillard from Washington state three Cody Ford from Oklahoma four Dalton reisner K state at five David Edwards from Wisconsin at six Yanni could use from West Virginia seven Michael Dider from Wisconsin at eight kill mcgarry from Washington at nine and Ali auto from. Ilan at ten. Our top three are the same. Really? We just have Williams in Dillard flipped. I went with Williams. Just because he is just a technician. And I think he could be he could just have a little bit smoother transition to the NFL not coming from that Mike Leach offense where it was just quick sets rarely asked to do anything. Like, a kick slide never had his hand in the ground that sort of thing Dillard will probably be a better pass protector, especially once he gets used to playing in. NFL scheme, but just for now Williams feels a little bit safer, and, you know, also, obviously important John Williams has longer arms. Yes. That is one thing. I'm not worried about the r-maine with with Joan Williams. I that is something people have talked about of why he should be moved to guard. And I get I. Man, three eight seven inch. It's insane. I get liking Jody Williams technique. I think one thing with Dillard and being at Washington state is to how often he did pass. Protect and he was so good pass protecting and a lot of those were some short throws on. But per sports solutions a blown block rate on passes of zero point four four percent. Which is the best of this offense of lime class. He was also a great athlete the testing of incredible at the combine number one in this class of ninety six point nine percent. So basically, the ninety seventh percentile of athleticism among authentic tackles per spark. So when you take at lettuces helmet you reps. He got in the past game. I am confident. He's going to be able to figure out the other nuances of a little more complex pass blocking and run blocking which was still good. At just didn't do it as often because Washington state passed a whole bunch. But if you are good it my philosophy. If you are really good moving backwards and setting yourself up in pass blocking your go into figure out run blocking more easily than I think if it were the other way around so that is one reason I like dealer a lot as my ofensive tackle one. But like we said we we have our top three are the same players. We just have them have one in three switch. But I don't think we're too big of a difference where we think it's crazy that one has one over the other where it is interesting is when we get to our back half we have three players each who aren't on each other's boards. But what is interesting is as we moved to guard in a little bit too of the guys who are on your board who I do not have in my tan, I do have in my top ten as guards. So we'll get to that. I think one person I do want to talk about a little bit is next Scharping out of north. Illinois. He's pretty good mid round guy that I think could be value in could be a pretty good starter in the mock draft. I put on bigly view dot com. I think I took him in the fourth round. And I think that's a potential starter. He was at least a little above average of among this class impasse balking. He was a one of the best run blockers in this class. So when you put that together, he has a decent athleticism using full profile from the combine. But everything he did test in was above average. So I kind of like how projects and I think the one good thing for the giants wasn't great last year. But it's been good going forward is they were so bad at right tackle like so bad between the failed. Eric fouls experiment, and it's been so we need to remember the giants thought Eric flowers was going to be passable enough. Right. Tackle at the beginning of the season that didn't last very long. And then Chad we were. Came in. And mean, he's on drafted guy. So he shouldn't have been expected to produce at a high level. But the giants didn't really have any other options. So they were so bad at that position. All they have to do is be even below average. It will be an upgrade. But if they shoot for just an average right tackle that'll be a massive upgrade at that position. Oh, definitely not to relitigate the whole Eric flowers thing. He's not a giant anymore. I think you could argue they never even gave that experiment a chance to get off the ground. They benched him after the second game. So two games is not enough time for someone to switch from left tackle the right? Tackle it just isn't. But anyway, moving on you mentioned the guys that we've you their position differently. I think the biggest one is Michael Dider out of Wisconsin. I actually view him as a five to a player. I think he could probably play and have started up side at pretty much anywhere on the offense of line. I think he could play tackle. I I think you could play guard. I think he could probably play at center. So I just list him at tackle. Because that is where the value is the highest. I actually think Cody Ford could probably play both guard and tackle at a high enough level to draft him either in the first round of very early in the second. So. So those guys I I have I actually have them at both places on my board the other guy, you don't have is David Edwards who I have just liked for awhile. He's he still figuring out the offensive tackle position. He still kind of owning his body after coming to Wisconsin as a quarterback turned tight end. So he's had to add a lot of weight, and he's just very still new to the position. So I think his era was pointed up. Yeah. That makes sense. I just I tap into like, you know, guys like like Scharping end less two guys. Greg little by the Evans, I do like them at a little bit. I mean little is someone who has been a puzzle. We talked about as a first round guy. Obviously do not like him there as my tackle nine the. But I think he does have a little bit. And he has does have the technique the lettuce not crazy about. But if. I would have as a down in tackled nine. So let's move on to a guard where I do have two of the guys you talked about so rundown by top ten here. Chris Lynch from Boston College is is number one Garrett bradberry. The center from North Carolina State is my interior offensive line two and will know this interior offensive line. So guards and centers are here. Eric McCoy from Texas AM is a center of is my interiors three than Elton Jagan from Mississippi State is four. There's Michael dealer is my interior five of Nate Davis from Charlotte is my interior six that Michael Jordan from Ohio State is number seven boat bench oil from a Wisconsin is number eight Connor McGovern from Penn State is number nine. And then this is where I have all Yudo. He was your tackle ten. He is my guard ten. From ilan. Okay. And so for mind, again, our top three are basically the same. I have geared bradberry center from NC state than Chris Lidstrom guard from Boston College Eric McCoy the center from Texas am now where we differ. I have Druce Amiya who is not on your board the guard from Oklahoma than Elton Jenkins center from Mississippi State. Ben powers guard from Oklahoma Khanna McGovern from Penn State. Bo bench hall from Wisconsin. Ross Pierce Bacher who is non you're board. He is the guard from Alabama. I have Phil Haines the guard from Wake Forest, so yeah, our our top three is basically the same. I have bradberry a little bit higher because I think Senator is just a little bit more valuable than guard. Although I also do believe Lynch from could. Probably play center and do a good job at it. Eric McCoy, he's the guy we both like I think he's a good well rounded center, you can do pretty much everything you want. I do like gruesome Lia, he's very experienced. He's started. I think just about every game for four seasons at Oklahoma. He moves well, he really explodes off the ball. He can go backwards and pass protection. You can set a pocket. He just does it all than Jenkins again. He's a good center. He's more power based than I McCoy bradberry. Ben powers, again, a really experienced guard. I don't think he quite has the athleticism that a lot of the other guys do but. He's strong and he's stabby without how he uses what he has. We both have McGovern eventual. Pierce bacher? I like him for the same reason. I liked powers and Phil Haines guy. I have been high on for. I think a while. Now, I probably wouldn't take him before the third day in the draft. But he if he's there in the fourth round out have hard time, not taking them and that's with Kevin Zeitler on the roster. Hanes just moves people. And he he moves really well for a big guard as well. So he just strikes me as. And under the radar pick that could wind up being a good starter. Yeah. It makes sense. The giants. Let's it's center. Probably not going to look at these guys early which kind of pains me 'cause hike crystal Instrum, a loyal. Yes. He is very good zero percent bone block rate against the past last year. Sports info solutions, he was also one of the most athletic authentic alignment at the combine and ninety six percent tile per spark. So the way he moves the way he can block very good. So he's clearly my interior one. Yeah. And then as you move down. There's there's some guys I I do like what you said Dida has the ability to play everywhere. And I think someone who will say if there's someone who can handle tackle to what him try at tackle first before you move him to guard. But I do just like some tackle prospects better at tackle. Which is why I have deeter. Here's also why have Yudo here was a good tackle. At EON, but then has been playing more tackle he was asked to move at the shrine game. And he did said he did like it or go bit nasty got used to it. So that's why I have him there. I think he probably projects Oto better there, which is why I have them and. Yeah. And then we I think we agree on a couple of other people. I think may Davis is someone I like from Charlotte the fairly athletic zero point five two percent boombox against the pass, which which was pretty good six three three seventeen. So also pretty good against the run. So he's a smaller school guys who I think can have a pretty good impact on the interior Hindi NFL someone who can probably be a decent decent get in the middle rounds. So since we rent a little while we're going to split this into two episodes and get into what we do for the defensive side of the ball.

The head risk manager down at the sports book for this week's version of the odds report Brent. How's it going today? Man Not too bad. I I don't WanNa you know poke at all atom but I just other than me being a little bit sunbird from my day off at the beach yesterday every other than that everything's fine. The AD snowed here today today. Well today recording this on Thursday and I think we're supposed to get like four to six inches of snow next Tuesday's so I hope you get severely sunburnt next time you go out. It feel feeling Christmas. He already are you. Oh Yeah but far humbug. Absolutely a go. Do It's November seventh. It shouldn't be snowing yet. Well the Christmas option B. Up. I don't know what it's like back there but here in Costa Rica. It's nuts like like the day after Halloween or even before Christmas stuff starts going up and I'm just like you gotta be kidding me and I love Christmas but man. I don't WanNa hear Christmas music in the mall on November fifth. Yeah no I'm. I'm very much the same way I'm all for like the you know the the few days few days before and a couple of days after but other than that it's like come don well. We got a lot of stuff to get to here in college. Football soul run through the games with sharp action. What fortunately enough a lot of big games here on the card for this week? So we'll be able to touch on those as we go throughout this segment. We start with the game. It's not a particularly big one. It does have a big spread though game one seventeen eighteen here clemson and NC state. What are we starting with today breath? Y- it's interesting now that the the official rankings come out and stuff I dow so you start looking at teams teams who are top ranked teams the top. You know five six seven whatever you have any kind of start thinking about teams. Maybe you know now that the things have settled settled a bit in terms of knowing where you are that the you know the possibility or maybe the probability of teams running up scores you know because that does factor in to how big was the performances arms is stuff that you start seeing stuff like that. I'm not going to kind of re between the the lines and suggested this play on Clemson by the sharps was kind of dialing into that. But I did take sharp money on Clemson. This game clumsy rain number five in the rank and they believe it was minus three and a half when they got bad. And it's just been like a steady tick up claimed in his wall. I mean we we move quite aggressively right away but just like even going thirty two even thirty two and a half hung around for awhile today. We're seeing at thirty three so it just gradually gradually going up. My weight account also favours Clemson as well also got accountable three to one going that way you know it is Kinda. NC State is at home. But I mean they've lost four last six game That they played wake forest last time out and they got. They got thumped by wake forest by pink thirty four. which as you know more than this bread here the only kind of caveat? I guess I'd better I might be looking at is like next week They are at wake forest Clemson as. Let's Kinda if there was ever a kind of a look ahead. That might be it but you know Clemson to. It's still tough with them because you're looking at their schedule who they've played You know there's no top ranked opponents. It's under schedule yet. Not until next week four so I kinda interesting to see you know what happened with him next week but you know I guess. The sharps are betting on the fact that they're not looking ahead to next week either. I think it's an excellent point because Clemson did start. I guess I would say it was an underwhelming start for them. I know they beat Georgia Tech but Georgia tech was in that game for the most part. It just didn't seem like they had that killer instinct early in the year. Now as you mentioned the margin of victory could end up mattering so. That's probably something. I I need to adjust in my power ratings. Going next week is that there's more incentive for some of these really good teams to as you said win by big numbers and we may see some of those the big favorites that our top six top seven in the College Football playoff. We may see some of those big numbers go up a little bit here. We go forward. Maybe you'll hieaux state which already has gone live from forty two to forty three and a half maybe a similar type of thing there. Yeah I mean Ohio state to I mean they honestly this year. They've just looked so good to talk from the Clemson game here. But yeah you you kind of get into this time of year where that stuff you know might factor in and it is also like you know not what happened like like months ago but what have you done for me lately kind of thing. That's kind of lasting impression too. I think we'll go a long way in terms of I mean you look at the teams that are that are ranked up there. Right now is quite a you know a bottleneck of undefeated teams. So you know if you can think of like jockeying for position and what you need to get up there on big wins or certainly going to be a way to do that all right take a look here game. One Twenty three one twenty four or Texas Tech and Virginia interesting game here both these teams off of some extra rest Texas tech with the full by West Virginia played on Thursday last week against Baylor. ehler early kickoff in Morgantown seems like it wouldn't be a great spot for Texas Tech but the line movement says otherwise so. Yeah I mean this one has moved I got I bet that at one I think the opening number was as low as a pick here Texas tech minus one is where I got bet by sharp money sitting at two and a half right now. I know there's some two and a half minus fifteen out there or even three dog twenty so this number does seem to be trending right now towards two and a half and juice or perhaps we'll sit on three You know these teams are both sitting at three and five on. They're both one and foreign kloppers but West Virginia to you you look at a team. Who's WHO's lost four straight games on that you know? They've they've got some some tough games on the schedule. I think they they close out with like Oklahoma. And may there a couple more games so there you know it's tough tough Texas Tech. They are sitting i. I you know only only three wins. They've played three of the top. Twenty five teams as well so Tough tough schedule when you're not conference as well so you kind of looking at. You can't can't really look at you. Know comparison CEO how to team new team and come up with more based on match ups here again. You know maybe not the the best game on paper in terms of these the record but Sharp money like I said was on minus one distance number did open as low as pick up kind of these. You know you look for I guess is a better you kind of look for the home dogs and stuff like that but obviously you don't WanNa go again sharp money in this case. Is the public going the same way here yet. Thought Account to me. It's not a massive count. It's only two one. Favoring in Texas tech so not not a real big count you know decided one winner other but the public is going the same way and it does look like minus three probably going to be the predominant number here sometime on Friday earlier Saturday. Yeah and what kind of interesting for me if it gets to three or three. Maybe you might as well five and stuff like that. If that's what it takes it raw west Virginia money I I can't see his this jumping on three and going above that if we sit two three and no sharp money comes in the other way or either way. We'll probably just end up sitting on that number jumped down a game. One thirty seven thirty eight here wake forest. You mentioned already with Clemson on deck taking on Virginia Tech and we talked talked about this game on Thursday. So I'll let you go ahead and talk about the sharp action I but hearing the side that's got some sharp money does not surprise me here. Yes sharp money on though the whole dog. aww Virginia Tech the number is down to or even one and a half. When we WANNA after popping up I did open I did get his highest three? And that's where. The sharps jumped in on Virginia Virginia tax. Why do how sharp money on the home dog here? Plus Three Virginia Tech they use all them last week they played notre dame real tough was until late in the game. They lost that came by by one point so that probably didn't probably help their case a little bit here in terms of the public thing with them as well. Not a massive wager count but it is about two to one one favoring Virginia Tech so I've got again another game rub gut sharps and public on the same week. Forest is sitting at seven one on the road to a five and three team. Even these Virginia Tech at five and three getting the getting the money wake forest to this. This is potentially a a big game for them because they are like. I said sitting at seven one. We lost a very close game the Louisville and the rat. The rat comes next week. So maybe it's a look a case of allow look ahead at Clemson but with this line so tight. I just don't see that happening doing what we talked about. On Thursdays show is. I can't remember a top twenty or top twenty five team in the poll. Getting disrespected affected week in and week out. Nobody wants to bet wake forest. Yeah I mean but maybe there's more to it you know maybe maybe the these following the sharp money maybe the wrong or something and and again you kind of want to side with with the sharp money more times than not but yeah you're you're you're right and again it's it's kind of a non traditional the school in terms of wait for a sitting there at seven when you're used to these teams being around five hundred jumped out one spot here game one thirty nine one forty and this line was a little a bit of a runaway train earlier in the week. Seems like we've kind of reached a stopping point here now but Appalachian State in South Carolina. Yeah I mean you know kind of goes to goes to show I guess when you look into teams records. You can't really just look at the record on the surface you gotta look at you know who they beat whether schedule was like and stuff like that APP State a bit did beat North Carolina earlier this season which you know may or may not be all that or a big deal or not nap state with the one loss of course was last week to Georgia southern so maybe not surprised here Disease Number go up the way. It has whole favorite South Carolina. Got Bad here minus four and we're up to minus six right now again just another bad spot for us with the public has tailed. The sharps was sitting at with a waiter. Count of three to one. Favoring US South Carolina's well so I don't see you know I wouldn't be surprised if six and a half was in the near future. I wonder I mean just based on your feel for how the markets have bet APP state and South Carolina. Do you think six and a half is spot. Were maybe APP state short when he does come in and maybe bring it back down to six or five and a half. I don't know it could be a case of just this. You know the the the general consensus or the painting the market. Because that's what drives these numbers did the opinion and market could be there. Just you know three and overheads. Even since I've been at six I'm still getting eating. Wage account of both three to one favorite South Carolina's not just the initial money at minus four where it was all one sided even six of steel one way. So I my my feeling is. It's GonNa hit six and a half whether that's enough to stem the tide. I don't know all right so we jumped out one spot here battle of unbeatens game one forty one forty two penn state and Minnesota. What's going on with this one? But yeah I mean it Minnesota's quite interesting case because you just Kinda like looking at their schedule and they've they've kind of beat up on lower level teams. If you WANNA call that I would say they've they've probably got a you know an easy schedule. Sharp money here has been coming in on Penn state my way to count only about two one five penn state so it is kind of running outweighing the line move. We've gone from six to minus six and a half as he. Some Jews Jews being popped up on a couple of books as well on the six and a half so I've got some minus six and a half minus fifteen gone as well so looks like this number might touch seven just the ways you know going Penn State of course you know one of the top ranked teams well on the coaches poll sitting at eight no They've got they've beat some some top ranked teams like Iowa and Michigan. They play Ohio. State leaders can meet their last real big test. Of course is the Iowa state game but you might argue. This is a pretty big game as well with the number seventeen ranked team Minnesota and again. You touched on Minnesota's like they've been you know anyone's undefeated you know. Good good for them. Getting here by really have had quite an easiest schedule now. They get Penn state date than they've got Iowa. They end up with Wisconsin. So what are they going to find a whole lot about Minnesota in the next three weeks. Yeah it certainly seems like we are and I gotTa say here as we've gone through the first I five games and I wonder if the next one's a little bit different but as we've gone through the first five games here sharpen public on the same side so you're GonNa have a lot of rooting interests here this this week to go against that. Yeah all we can do is use the numbers and try and balance action as best we can just throw stuff out there and find the point when we started getting money back with their sharp or public You kinda get the feeling that seven might be the number finally get some money back on Minnesota and you're talking about it you know a home dog you're getting a touchdown down on top of that and you know the top ranked teams Kinda seems like a spot where seven might be the number and again if that were the case. If I'm fortunate enough to get money back at the plus seven I'm certainly a you know. Very comfortable. Dealing Penn state minus six and getting money on them and getting money back plus seven the other way something. That's kind of interesting here to me in this business before we talk about. LSU In Alabama the construction of the rotation numbers for the board right above LSU Alabama South Alabama and Texas state. Right below it. You Have New Mexico. State and Ole Miss. It almost feels wrong that those two games are are close to Lsu Alabama in any way. Yeah I yeah I don't know how the rotation numbers come up that you know they. They set them out and then the Times get all balanced Ram so the timing is not related to the Times of games and stuff like that it seems so yeah Anyway what sixty seven one sixty eight here is. LSU In Alabama you may have heard of these teams in in fact you may have bet on water both of these teams here so far this season. What's going on here Brent? With the biggest game of the regular season. Yeah I mean we. We talked earlier about how you've seen a lot of I guess. Typical Games with brand name brand name teams over the years he would expect competitive games and competitive markets. That really hasn't been the case this year. There's been a lot of games. Were you see teams who should be that competitive and competitive games and close prices and yet you end up lines like minus thirteen and a half stuff without being being decided by twenty points this one here I mean it's got all the makings of a barn burner so far let right now this game is is up there with my NFL Games in terms of my overall handle which is very very big This number just keeps going down one on Alabama or sitting at six right now you can see in a five and a half order today. Touch the board some know. Watch out for sharp money is on the you know the the road dogg. Lsu Plus Seven. So I got plus seven sharp money on Lsu. I'm sitting at six six right now. Like I said I see some some five and a half popping up on the board as well right now so it just seemed like this number is gonna be bouncing between probably five and six. I wouldn't surprise me at all up at Lsu these teams Alabama. This is kind of like the game for them You know it's the biggest game on the schedule so far they kind of got to get past this one. I'm not Arkansas. Pat An easy schedule. But they've Kinda made it look easy sitting eight no Lsu a little bit tougher. I'm they beat Auburn last week. that was kind of like the you know marquee game for them and this is the last big one on their schedules. Well My wieder count does fever. LSU's whilst we got public and sharp money go in the same way there. So I I think by game mm time. We'll probably find the number that money back and if you happen to be at six that it comes in or if we have to go down to five and a half that'll be fine Not really too worried about that. Since I've gone to six WCHS stem the tide in terms of the one way count the number six itself pretty much balanced in terms of my both my money and waiter counts that kind of worked out for us by you know. Oh I think the public has just kind of have that Tennessee to liking LSU. And I think they're probably one of those things like kind of floyd mayweather thing where people wanna bet against Alabama Obama. They WanNa see them loose. Now I will ask you this because I think that this is something. It's a pretty interesting storyline here. It's probably not getting as much run in terms of betting market as it should but two if two is officially named the starter here for Alabama do you move the number or do you let the action move the number. Because I think it's going to happen either way. Yeah I you you Kinda just hold the number you wait for your first major. Hit just to know where it's going to go. I again because of my wait account going the other way. You don't WanNa jump jump the gun and a half you know pushing them up and have a sharp Bagel back the other way so you get a situation. We've got a couple of sharps and the public on the same with LSU issue so when that comes we'll probably take the first hit and move with the market. It'll when it comes out is gonNA come as well all right so how about the total for this scam. 'cause I mean you look at these. Two offenses are both top five in yards per play and yet the totals actually come down a little bit. Yeah my waiter count on this. One is pretty much much debt even so I'm just kind of following the market where it is You know my way to come. You know. Almost perfectly balanced timberland numbers. I've gotten my bed. Count either way it. Has You know it had opened. I think is the highest sixty five and a half here down sixty two and a half. I don't have you know big action either way just looking. Yeah even when I was at sixty five it was pretty much. You know two-way Action Action. So I really haven't I haven't got any decisions at any number sentimental. I've just gone down with the market. Are One more game on the college football side here and Lsu Alabama the best game of the week eight three thirty eastern kickoff. The eight o'clock game here is Iowa State and Oklahoma and based on what we've we've seen the last several weeks with Iowa state seems like the sharp money has jumped off of the cyclone strain here at least for one week. Yeah you know. It's going back years now that I get the feeling that Iowa state is the more difficult teams to figure out. I don't know if you know the sharp have a hard time figuring them out at all but I think this kind of just my general perspective is one of those those things where you kind of expect him to win in the. Don't when you expect them lose. They win stuff like that. The harder team to at least for me to figure out this number has gone from minus thirteen right took sharp money so I got sharp money on Oklahoma minus thirteen. And we're up to fourteen and a half right now. Just Kinda gone when the market there. I still have At at fourteen and a half is kind of like the point where you know you talk about how we would moving numbers and see what starts to stem the flow and right at fourteen and a half is just starting to get slightly more Iowa state money but just you know almost uneven waiter couches slightly more towards Ohio State even at fourteen. It was still more favoring Oklahoma so my counts not dramatically one side but it is you know in favor of Oklahoma but four and a half seems to be at least in house here. It's the number. That's working for me right now. I know a couple of books have like fourteen in like the minus. Fourteen reminded one fifteen. Stop at that up there. I've just gone straight to fourteen and a half Iowa state. You know you look at them. I mean they're five and three on the year all three loss of top twenty five teams James Joyce there. Obviously you know a decent team. They're just not maybe not that upper upper echelon team here the Arina road spot Oklahoma that they lost to Kansas Kansas state. And you know not that Oklahoma's going to be looking ahead or you think that one but I mean they'd their next week at Baylor so that's a big game for them and they end the season Oklahoma state so I don't think the teams are going to look at head but it does happen elements. We'll see what happens right now. Four and a half is working for me though all right right so move over to the NFL side a reminder to everybody out there use your onscreen to your advantage against some books cater towards sharper players. Some books catered towards more recreational players players. They won't take a lotta sharp exposure always important to us that odd screen to your advantage and I try to encourage people to do that. I'm sure a lot of people. Listen in the car. But you're listening looking at your computer or something else. Have that onscreen up as we go through these games. One of the reasons why I do them By rotation order but we transitioned over to the NFL here and we start with game. Two fifty five fifty six Arizona and Tampa Bay and some interesting sharp activity in this game. Yeah we have a a slightly lighter. NFL Card in terms of sharp action. It's just reflects the fact there is a short Ricardo's week Adam We all like five teams on the by this week. This game you know I I like this I mean I. Obviously you know you when the sharps come in. I don't really argue with them too much in terms of what they see. 'cause I you know I I just. You're balancing in the book. I'm not really a you know a better percent I don't handicap at the level. We have people help us with stuff like that. But this is one of those games where you knew you had to open a high. Why because the public was going about the origin? The nature of team with Arizona and Tampa Bay. You got the idea of Arizona that high flying offense in the course Tampa. Bay's been high scoring games. James Gunn going back to last season. So you're two and a half a season and a half into this of getting used to Tampa Bay putting up a whole lot of points or giving up a whole lot of point so I think that you know the perception in here with definitely gonNA drive this number. That's why we were as high as we were at fifty three and a half. I believe the highest opening number was fifty four and a sharp money that has driven this woman down. Automated countable two-to-one almost three to one favoring the over and a half sharp money on the under so under fifty three and a half is where that money came in again. I I think just the perception here in this one I kind of now is going to sound contradictory. I guess because Tampa Bay's been involved in six consecutive games have had you know the the total points scored in the fifties but I don't I just don't see these offenses both as as dominant as people might think in defensively offensively I think Tampa Bay has a strong run defense. They do a good job with their front Arizona does a decent job. Getting you know pressure on the on the on the pastor. And we've seen what Jameson does when he's under pressure so he's just not quite that good. I think you know if these both these teams kind of avoid the big chunk place. He's I think this one does kind of get under. I think it might get under quite easy now. We're sitting at fifty two. It seems to be kind of like the number. That's working through balancing ballots and stuff vote. I looks right now just because the money that I took on probably still need the under which is gonna be sided with the sharps in this game but again Dan I don't WanNa over handicap. Because that's just not what I do but I think of these teams avoid. You know big big place. I think this number slides in easy I know Tampa Bay sitting to get two and six three five one on the year. So it's not you know Marquis Games wage account here not heavily heavily involved you know. Just because of the teams by accountable sued want papering Tampa. Bay's well inside so that number on the side. I'm just mentioning that. You know the count on the side because it has gone down. This number opened his highest six and five and a half and it's gone down a four and a half where we are right now seems to be a waiter count fearing Tampa Bay has had almost three to one favoring. The buccaneers at the numbers dropped down. So if I was going to read into things I would say charbonnier but I don't know that for fact based on what I've taken in store are it's really into fifty seven fifty eight here and technically speaking the giants. I answer on the road against the New York jets. Even though these teams share the same stadium there in East Rutherford at the meadowlands so no home field advantage or anything to worry about here in this game. mm-hmm what's happened with the side. Yeah you can just look at the Oakland numbers and see where we are now in Kinda read into that when we're sitting at three dog dog twenty right now on the giants I have seen some two and a half minus fifteen on this one the number openness Loza pick and that's where I got by sharp money right away on the giant so the road giants it says you will add. A pick is where I took that sharp money again. This is on paper in probably in front of your eyes is going to be an ugly game. But I've got a waiter count pretty much dead even haven't haven't you know haven't got a whole lot of action to the public. You know involved in this just the sharp money in the site Ed pick him. So I'm Kinda just fishing money to come back. It is a bit of a tough spot sometimes. Sometimes because it's not one of those big game you're not gonNA get a ton of action Hopefully some money from the local market will come flowing and closer game time. We'll get something back on the jets but you know will the jets. You talk about the quarterback situation all you want but I think their offense of line is just a you know a real big liability for them. the secondary is interesting interesting because they're secondary to of what what I've watched. I've kind of watched replaced a couple of games lately and the jets like seem to have a very strong run defense. But they're they're secondary's secondary's very very weak and it's it's kind of ironic. Because the fact that they have such a strong run defense almost forces teens to throw the ball more which plays into the game game plan that exposes them is Kinda I just kinda laugh at the irony of that one are so we just talked about the jets. We're GONNA talk talk about Miami here in a second one sharp involvement in their game. Did you guys happen to put up a will Miami go Owen sixteen props. Obviously that was dead now yet. No we did. We did not have that one and you know we Miami's playing. I would've taken that taken that that no they wouldn't go in sixteen. I mean ever. Since it's funny with Fitzpatrick he gets there on. These team did happen with Tampa Bay last season. He just kind of at least temporarily gives me a whole lot of energy. Well I guess maybe that has something to do with the sharp involvement here on game your sixty seven to sixty eight. Which is Miami at Indianapolis? What's going on here? Yeah I mean I. It's I find this very interesting is because of all the injuries injuries that are on the offense that both these teams t. y.. Hilton is out for the colts. Peres Campbell is out. Jacoby percent is questionable. Here air and Preston will williams. He's also vote for for the dolphins. Swim you talking about team. Who didn't have a whole lot of weapons? Oh they're running back. He got suspended as well. I believe that was Walton. So it's like the all the offensive weapons on both teams are out at this. Number's gone up and had been sharp money. That drove that the total here was over. Forty three right took sharp money honey and we're seeing a forty four right now. My count is about to one on the wall so I guess it would just kind of a a little bit low. You know for us. I don't think it's going to be you know a massive adjustment with brisket or or Hoyer quarterback because I think it's the colts very much about it you know it's a scheme kind of thing. Just play a very good system offensively so I don't think the number is going to move you know a ton regardless of WHO's at quarterback and we saw last week while the where did pretty well I mean the first passing through all season was a touchdown pass And the thing too I kinda again. I don't like to get you monroe. When Rosen was a quarterback for the dolphins different case when Fitzpatrick is out there I mean he just pushes pushes the ball downfield so much? I mean he's the fall. The you know the volume of his deplace on how aggressive he is. Do you have the possibility for biggest plays. And that's always an upside for the over. The colts state they do you know. Run the ball very well They pass block well and stuff as well Miami. I don't think has a very very good defense. They're poor with you. Know putting pressure on the quarterback as well so I see a situation where you see. Sometimes when you're handing out the game you can look at game flow and kind of looking at the you know. This is how I see the game going and I I think both these teams will have success. Running you know moving the ball on if the coolest jump out early Fitzpatrick's going to be aggressive person. The ball downfield. And they'll be you know back and forth in terms of driving this number up. I think the sets up well for the over and I kind of you know. I'm glad that the SHARPS Nuro wish. I had a lot of public money on the under but maybe it all of it comes out the he starting. Maybe this number will take down on if it does. I think he just beat back up the word right now. Forty four doesn't like there's some more support for Miami from a standpoint here in this game too. Yeah I mean Miami. Honestly ever since Fitzpatrick's been altered they've been getting support week after week. I mean even back back in the days when the lines were like minus twenty one and stuff like that. Miami was constantly getting support all right so we got one more game to look at here on the NFL side. That is game to sixty nine to seventy the rams on the road against the Pittsburgh steelers and this sharp activity may surprise some people out there. I know it surprises me. Yeah it's interesting because we always for a couple of years. Now you've talked about how golf his home and road splits just not very good. Obviously being a whole lot better at home and not so so good on the road yet. The rounder sitting here at three and one on the roads kind of that kind of goes against the kind of tendency and kind of perception that we have of gough in Pittsburgh it's interesting Pittsburgh just been just been a competitor competiton. They're playing kind of like steeler football. I mean you know the losses. They've had in terms of personnel in the off. Season the trades and stuff like that the quarterback quarterback situation. But they've been a tough competitor team. Sharp money was This number did go all the way up to four. And that's where the the sharp money came in on Pittsburgh. Plus the for this is finally one of those games gotta sharpen public split with the sharps on Pittsburgh and the public count. Favoring the random almost at a three to one count fearing the rounds Kinda surprised me I I kind of expect count towards the Rams for sure but maybe not so much just because Pittsburgh over the years has been such a public team as well in the rams favors while you've got them coming off a bye so that's kind of spot that you know people look for in terms of betting teams year back in teams off the bye But sharp money here on Pittsburgh at home plus for your parting note here in the NFL. You got to really good primetime games this year. We haven't had a lot of good primetime games for Sunday night and Monday night really the Monday night. have by and large been kind of a disappointment but Minnesota Dallas on Sunday night. Seattle San Francisco on Monday. Night should be a lot of late activity for you guys to balance the books with those games are going to be massive in terms of action. You know talked about how Lsu in Alabama was equivalent of one of those one of the bigger NFL Games already. So we're looking forward to a you know a high volume weekend for US and again when you get high volume it makes us makes it easier for us in terms of balancing books as well looking at Dallas and the Mayenne Minnesota Game I think the line occas lowest two and a half of pretty much threes. We're all the money's been ridden. I'm totally balance in terms of my count on that one at three. I got money both quays at at three. So it's worked out real well for US You know the Seattle San Francisco Game. I am Kinda surprising numbers as high as it wasn't because A. Yeah San Francisco's undefeated but Seattle's Seattle's just been such an explosive team. Yeah they have their weaknesses and stuff like that. But I I just from my side. I think I'm going to have to move down to if the market market doesn't go down to six. I'm probably have to go there myself. I have to do massive one-sided waiter count fearing the seahawks. I guess I'm square as the Public Betas are because they're they're backing him. I'm at the plus six and a half count there who is almost six to one. Favoring Seattle's that's going to at least in house something that I'm going to have to look out for this market goes on you know a couple of books start trickling down. I'M GONNA jump and be right there with them if this line goes up. I'm GonNa Probably GonNa hang where I am right now. The head risk manager down at a sports book a lot of stuff here a watermark games and some good insights the NFL as well so Brent always a pleasure to chat with demand.

GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast Episode 284: Let's Review My Mock Draft vol.1 Part 2

"Golden state media concepts fantasy football podcast is your one stop shop for fantasy football news and advice decided who to draft first round cowing Gaga and how a lot of your team got. You covered additionally, Zionists deletes he only I DP DP lead even piggly fantasy football league us. As we break down all the question of fantasy football, it's the golden state media concepts, fantasy football podcast. A Back. Welcome. Welcome welcome GPS MC fantasy football podcast here again, GMC hosted on GMC podcast network is even We're going over my mock draft we've gone through. Let's see here the first. Five rounds basically I four and we got a few more to go clearly as time is of the essence here, regain closer to the season and we gotta start prepping up and getting prepared so. Where we left off was at the beginning of the fifth round where I kind of tease. Then you know we saw a key now and sightings key went fifth fifth round second pick ziggurats was the first pick in the fifth round and then Melvin Gordon. So we got Melvin Gordon citing in the double and single Terry hype grew came in and he was drafted right after Melvin. Gordon then Terry Maclaurin and I ended up getting CAM acres so. CAMAKERS NOT A guy. I was targeting per se and I have been in a situation where I don't want to too many rookies on my team because when you're depending on guys who've never been in the NFL for. The first time they may explode on the scene. Right they may have really good seasons with they always hit a wall at some point everybody hits the wall. Now, the wall may not be as hard as other people's, but it definitely won't be as juicy as it was when they weren't hitting the wall I, promise you and sometimes it might come back to bite you in the keys and I didn't want something to bite me in the Kieser too much right. I didn't want to many of those type of guys especially for basically getting my second running back he will be marooning back to, but I ended up suddenly inform and. Now, we're in the real deal steel range for drafting. So the big names are basically gone you gotTA. Put in the time and turn on the jets essentially you gotta get right so. De Que. Metcalf went right after camakers. T Y Hilton went so ty citing now ty. Fell off as far as draft concerns. So that's something to monitor. Maybe we have slept on y a little too long maybe has a resurgence and we all have to sit here and eat our words. Then Kareem Hunt went after Eli, Jarvis Landry DJ sharp junior which honestly considering the year that he had. Unfortunately, this is just a reality situation. We don't know what often is looking like and honestly at any moment in time the Jaguars could just blow everything up. then. Tyler. Board went at the end of the fifth round. Everybody's favorite waiver. Wire pickup has now not been anywhere where I pick up any longer. For the past two seasons but. Tyler boy was a beautiful guy to get off waivers a few seasons ago I've done it. My friends done it. He is one of he helped so many people out in times of need and I think that's what a lot of people do with these wide receivers these days because you can find one off waivers. That's GONNA. Be Hot for a little while and he could help you stir the tide of things start to get ugly and that's what you gotTa do sometimes The six round. was very interesting for a lot of different reasons. Now, Michael Gallup went I in the sixth round and Devante Parker De'andre Swift Andrea Swift is recently. A little tweak and he did not practice for the Detroit lions granted Detroit didn't practice at all a few days ago due to. Protest for Jacob Blake and that was a very powerful message I. appreciate that from the Detroit Lions and I, appreciate all these sports trying to make a message and make a stand for what they believe in because. Yeah. Like Lebron says, they are more than just an athlete. They have the right to protest or have the right to speak their mind just like everybody else in this country. So. Marquees Brown went sixty four. So right out the swift during waller sixty fifth he wasn't somebody targeting this year. I, guarantee you because I think he's due for some regression in although I think he is a wonderful tied to have I think his average position is less to be desired decay dobbins went. and. That was something that I felt was a little you know I took Ronald Jones. The second. Okay. So Ronald. Jones is in a situation where he's with a very good veteran quarterback that we've known historically and how the fond memory of we know that the wide receiver group for the buccaneers going to be stout in the worst outlast James Winston throwing the ball around and we know that there touchdowns. The thirty turnovers thing has been overdone. But yeah, it happened we get that so. It is. Imperative that we remember how people talk about certain players, Bruce Arians. Really loved Ronald Jones and sometimes it doesn't always show in the stat line but I, think, a lot of stuff gets misled especially when your offense. IS LED BY A. Chuck, the Ball Downfield type of guy and I think Ronald Jones's due to have a really nice season this year because they're going to have to lean on the run game a little bit more than usual because. I don't think Tom Brady arms can allow him to check the ball up down feel like that, and I think there has been signs of Ronald Jones being able to be utilized not only in the run game. In the passing game we understand that Keyshawn von is around, but he isn't he's still a rookie and we don't know just how much of the targets here he's going to end up getting in the first way. So I picked him up. He would be a better. Version of a Mark Ingram because marketing room went right underneath. Then, the Shawn Watson went. So that's the next quarterback is stuck a little mini but here we are. Aj Green went seventieth then Stefan digs will fuller. So Aj Green maybe he's set up for a comeback. We don't know but fifth round or six round. Should I say it's something that. You know I never really figured I would see. Here's where I made. Some baller moves in my opinion are made a baller move here. So in the seventh round, I was able to acquire Dak Prescott and I know what you're thinking. Oh, a quarterback footballer moves. It's not that big of a deal but honestly I. Deck. is going to be. A fantastic guy with Mike, McCarthy? Like I just said it right. I just said this. So quarterback wide receiver tandem. This year is the cowboys. Right now. So that's what I'm thinking like I noticed the mock draft planning on doing this later on in my real droughts when I do play. So I'm high on a lot of the you know them boys higher on these boys but I'm really hoping that DAX peak has yet to come. So he was really really good last year and under the scheme that didn't have them throwing the ball nearly that much there's we could have his potential wasn't fully reached Mike McCarthy can unlock Dak Prescott. And might be a level that we'd never expected him to even get to. And maybe this can help all the DAX importers and all the people that say, the Dacca's better than wins or whatever the case I'm not involved in those arguments especially because I do think at this point. Carson Winston quarterback overall anyway. But. Fantasy. Wise. I, Think Carson. CanNot really compare to Dak Prescott from this damn point of Carson, does not have nearly as many weapons as doctors right now, and honestly that came in with a good amount of weapons they rookie anyway. His weapons have only gotten better since he's been in the league. and. It is going to look a little scary considering the fact that their first pick was us on CD lamb like he has a plethora people throw to it's insane but. Calum Murray went I in this round then Rahim. Most. WHO. I think is due for some timely regression, which probably means why he was drafted in the seventh round somewhere like the third. Deebo Samuel went another guy from San Francisco because San Francisco is one of those teams right now that is very predicated on running the ball, but they do it shared by committee, and when they do throw the ball is not like sitting here. You know targeting super deep threats and we always we understand the target guy there is on offense in the passing. Game Anyway. Evan Ingram went. Right after Deebo in then Brandon Brooks went and that's a Houston situation that honestly I haven't put a lot of thought into since it was announced that trade and they ended up getting brandin cooks and David Johnson so. We'll have to really kinda gauge it when we see the play because right now. The jury is still out about the Watson we understand he's a really really great talent. He's one of those guys who can save a game and make a great play when he needs to. But at the same time, it hasn't been all consistent there yet he hasn't been able to put it all out there to play at a consistent high level all the time, and that's something that we have to wait and see he's kind of like. A third year NBA player when we see the talent there but we haven't really gotten it all together or they haven't figured out how to do nightly in nightly out as Kinda weird. Shawn Watson is in my opinion. I ended up drafting that press guy like I said and then. Jamison. crowder went to wreak Cohen went Julian Alam and went tyler higby. James White and then Marvin Jones junior went. Off, the board. Now, we're moving into the nitty gritty. So this is round eight so. I just got to squeeze in real quick. So I've been pretty worried about the collective backfield in Denver since the team got Melvin. Gordon this off season and I saw Melvin Gordon when fifth and then Phillip. Win Like Philip Win a fulfilled Lindsey went a spoiler alert. and. In, an offense that has a lot of hungry mouths fees. Let's keep in mind they did draft. Wanted the be I think honestly, they drafted the most talented wide receiver in the group. I think that. They have well, they drafted to I should probably name the one that got drafted right so they ended up getting Jerry Judy. And I think he is going to be really really special. Personally they have court sudden who already win the draft I had courtroom sudden last year a phenomenal guy love that guy and they have Caja Handler who? Honestly could really be a good threat for them in both the passing in the run game because he's capable of doing both. But he's more of a wide receiver then they have no font. No fant. Norfolk. Whatever. Really sought after tied in last year not so much this year and probably partially because the reason why we all understand that there's a lot of mouths to feed on his office I didn't even name the running because we already know. and. They have a quarterback. Who has not yet proven that he can feed all these mouths right? We have no idea. If drew lock has what it takes to really feed these guys and that worries me, which is why I'm not as high on coralline sudden as I would like to be personally. and. Even, though I know that things are looking good for them and I understand all of that as far as the talent around everybody else. If the quarterback isn't the guy is going to be. But To continue on what happened here. This is where are probably messed up a little bit right. This is the one where I think I might have made a mistake and I'm GONNA own up to it about sixty five percent but hear me out. Okay. So my pig was Justin Jefferson new wide receiver for the Minneapolis are sorry Minnesota Vikings, and it might have been a mistake that wasn't too sure who to target for in this round and I didn't want to many rookies on my roster like already said and already had one and not to say that this guy would end up starting for me and most days but. You know I did have one more particularly that targeting my back. Half the new would be there and I still ended up getting him but just was kind of a site I could probably could have got somebody else that could have been a little more useful not to say Jefferson Jefferson can't be good because I think everybody who saw him in the Draft figured Oh they're just really replaces to find digs with Stefan digs port to and yeah, it feels like that. But we really don't know and we know that dealing is the guy after down cook and we saw the reason why it's defined digs left or wanted to get out of there was because he didn't click with their current quarterback situation and. You Know Justin Jefferson came off a season where they were sitting in the football left and right and that's just not the vikings. Mo. They're definitely a run heavy team that does play it and play action and they don't like to make mistake football. And Joe Boroughs Wild unless year. So we don't really know exactly what the what the vision is for this new. Style of play for the Minnesota Vikings but I don't think it will be that. So ended up getting just Jeff. So just to review Kerryon Johnson went Matt Brady went deontay Johnson Went Zach Moss went for the bills. Darren. Henderson junior went sterling shepard went right before my Justin Jefferson. Big Latavius Murray went afterwards Philip Lindsay went so even then I felt I figured filled Lindsey we'll still they just couldn't do it. Jordan. Howard went golden take Kevin Coleman went. So. Now, we're about to get into the back half and finish out with the conclusion. I. Felt about the draft overall and just my final thoughts coming up GMC.

When it's the women's frighten game, you know where to listen to the golden state media concepts, women's MMA podcast. Okay. Final word here. For the podcast right now we got lots going and we're still continuing on in traversing through this draft eighteen seats in my hand has turned into eight. So we've dropped down. I'm sorry that's actually wrong. We have ten more seats to go basically and we're almost through. And I wanted to quickly say before we finish out of course thank you guys for listening and all that stuff. So. You guys rock. And everybody's enjoying this so far because I am having A. Smashing time shout out to my boys in London in Birmingham? England. You got family out there. So mother is a British citizen a born. Brit. Amazing. Woman. I got a lot of family out in these places. Man You know you gotTa go global sea world and stuff hopefully after Kobe we can go do that. All right enough of the side bars was get into it. So the tenth round became the oath snap. I don't have a quarterback around pretty fast as twenty five percent of that round went quarterback. So Josh Allen went and we're GONNA have to do a little bit of Josh Allen Soapbox here right now. So Josh Allen went, and I'm still not going to go there. Anymore I would a Josh Allen Fantasy fan and thus he kind of forced me into becoming a bills fan. You know kind of by proxy. Like I like the bills because I used to play with them and way back in my youth. Like their color scheme. And? That just kind of liked them. Ever since they're like my AFC team of choice when I'm not rooting for the saints the Saints. Ultimately break my heart like they do many many many times and. You know I've grown to lay Josh Allen. As a player and I know fancy wise last few years he's been solid. Asterix solid he's been I always will say this Joshua Allen for the past two years is a guaranteed eighteen. And we all know about that Stan he had in his rookie year we're in the back half of the top five fantasy quarterback performer which was. Shrug because it didn't really translate anything afterwards. But. I don't think fancy purposes I got to see what you're looks like for him. We know he got a really really good wide receiver installation, Dixon, join him John Brown and even more exciting as a player to. be able to open their offense. We know dignitaries what he's capable of they don also draft Zach Mall so we know they're running back by committee situation. And we know he can do stuff with Legs Josh? Allen can. The problem is. He's a guard who's limited his mistakes, but he's not dynamic because of that. This scheme isn't designed for him to be a discount Lamar or even a Cam Newton rate. He's not a discount Lamar Jackson Discount Cam Newton. and. When he does flies that kind of ability. Caution gets thrown to the wind or should I, say to the other team like we saw in the playoffs last year and he he's kind of on a on a weird track I don't know if. He's the guy that a lot of people in that buffalo locker room feel like he's going to be the starter forever unless he proves it this year I. Think this is the proving year for Josh. Allen. Because, if he doesn't. I think buffalo is at a team level. As far as everybody else around his team whereas high enough to really compete and Josh, Allen isn't the guy. They still can figure out another way to get this done in that's into. Jack a new quarterback into the system and figure some things out. So Buffalo as a team, very, very good they under honestly I, think Buffalo underachieved last season in the playoffs. They should've won that game. They should have not lost a Houston I. Don't know what it would've happened afterwards, but they should have one and gotten out of that round but I digress. Christian Kirk win this round Henry rugs the third Preston Williams Robbie Anderson. Hunter. Henry, I ended up taking jared cook. So Jerk Cook was number nine. So I kind of skipped over because I had to get on Josh Allen piece but. I think that Jerry Cook is a fantastic guy and I've been feeling like he's been a bit undervalued coming into this year's draft. So I got him at nine, which was round above is ADP. So I kinda reached for him a little bit but I think it was pretty fair in hopefully a season filled with drew brees being healthy. I think he'll prove what he. Did near the tail end of the season was actually sustainable even in a feature to men offense of the saints that is just Alvin. Kamara in can't guard Mike Sharing a lot of touches sharing a lot of the sugar. I think that having him, there is a really really good thing for the saints and also I think having even fantasy will be very, very profitable. And I really hope he doesn't actually prove me wrong. Antonio gives him when afterwards Matt Ryan went after that Rob Gronkowski went super late as we all see, you heard about the whole man rating thing which was crazy. Got A ninety five rating jumping back in the madden after not playing football for two years I was pretty well Darius Laden came in afterwards John Brown went and then Emanuel Sanders drafted now we're back in the tenth round we just talked about that of course that was Tyler Hockey Nsen tied in for Detroit which a lot of people think might be something then Josh Allen went who we just talked about Curtis Samuel Tom Brady than Alexander Madison. Carson. Wentz went right before my next FIG and I ended up taking Marlin Mac so Okay. And went running back. In the first in the ten round and round eleven and I took Marlin Mac in took Sony, Michelle, spoiler. Alert Sodium sales on my team. So to backs that are basically in running back by committee system one is for real. One is basically and the Patriots won talk but I think Marlin MAC has potential to be a touchdown machine in the red zone and I think Sony Michelle was a bit of a flyer pick because I felt like I probably needed one more back and I kinda sold my my logic there I didn't go best player available and I just kind of took him. Because I think that he's gotten solid touches for a guy who basically has a lackluster year and I wouldn't see why he wouldn't get the ball again and hopefully he can turn it around. So for example, right? So. The. Case for is. Michelle recorded two hundred and forty seven carries last season and he had one hundred eighty more than the next best player on the team which was James. White was sixty seven. We all know James why? As a pass catcher anyway and Damian Harris meanwhile recorded just four carries as a rookie in total. So continuity could matter more than ever and that could be really big. Of course Damian Harris is on that team and we. Should believe that he can get something and James White and chamber recorded a combined twenty nine touches during their rookie campaigns, and then of course, the burst on the scene. In the only exception to this rule was you know Michelle himself but only happen because Jeremy Hill and rex burkhead suffered serious injuries. So looking ahead, you know they're probably will just end up sharing carries anyway and I wouldn't see why they wouldn't because back in two thousand thirteen Steven Ridley finished the season with one hundred, seventy eight carries while the Garrett Blunt finished with eighty, one, hundred, fifty, three, and the garin blunt was a pretty nice guy get fantasy because of its touchdown production and that's why I ended up getting Marlin Mac because I think if they get in the red zone Marlin Mac is the guy. Unless. You Know They WanNa let Jonathan Taylor. But that's why drafted him because I felt you know what? Let's do it. You breeze went after Marla Mac. Then Tony Pollard then McCullough. THAN CD LAMB and Jerry Judy went after that. So somebody else got another cowboys guy who I was secretly targeting myself. So you know I didn't get him though after that Mike Williams than keyshawn. Vaughn. Went Noel Font or fant don't really know the pronunciation just yet. Hayden hearst. Who Lives a guy I thought about now might target later on I, have to do some more research because I feel like the Atlanta Falcons might need a real third guy and it might ended up being him Aaron Rodgers went Sony Michelle. There's my pick Mike Gillespie when Matthew Stafford Austin Hooper win, which is kind of interesting as Austin Hooper went after Hayden hearst Perryman went. And let's talk show I perelman had got guts of had the best. Get Three Games and get paid to show you COULDA got because those games and he had where what the Pucca nears where he scored quite a bit and he looked like this fantasy. Guy For last three. was really interesting. So daily fans guys eight all that up and then he got paid Ok this little small spot jalen breaker went. Right after that and then aged Adrian Peterson is crazy. He's still kicking still going so. After those two rounds, right. I ended up going with Michael Pittman junior as my rookie flyer pick for the twelfth frown and for no other reason than that he's a big possession receiver that rivers can just chuck the Ball Adam at will and I think he has some can't guard Mike Potential for sure. But now I'm not saying this guy is about to be the next Reggie Wayne or Andre Johnson or. Maybe, even you know can't guard Mike at full peak, but I do think he has the tools and the skill set to be like those guys those big time possession receiver who can get down the field in the numbers and really really have a large impact in take their size and use it to their advantage. So I ended up taking Michael Junior because I think he might end up paying out and be something really special with them To Sean Jackson Wins Round Nahim hines went Peres Campbell went Chris herned on Duke. Johnson went who I was somebody who I was looking at getting at this time. To kind of. Supplement some picks that I made like the Justin Jefferson pick chase Edmunds win right after they got Michael Pittman then Anthony. Miller. Went Justin Jackson from Los Angeles went the chargers and then Daniel Jones went and Boston Scott and then Ben Rothlisberger. So. These last few rounds were just guys getting differences and kickers and I goofed up guys that made another mistake pivotal. Hurt me bad because. The kicker spot in the last few years has been something that I really kind of reserved for one guy one guy only defense is a is A. Crap, shoot really there is no. You don't know how a defense is going to be for fantasy football primarily because you have no clue what they're turnovers are going to be two turnovers and sacks of course and stuff like that are big time. For Defensive Fancy later the way you score 'cause it's almost impossible. To hold somebody to not scoring. So you're very unlikely to hold that natural ten as much as you would like to. So getting turnovers getting, you know sacks getting interceptions, fumbles. Tackles for loss those things are big time. And you won't really know until you really see the season goes and even then you might have a defense stars really strong for the first four weeks and they teeter off because. people adjusted or they weren't as good as we thought or people get hurt defense is just too much. 'CAUSE you're having to monitor a team that has eleven people on the field rather than just one person. All right but kickers. Our love will let he's my on my favorite team. He's a guy that gets the job done doesn't miss as Clutch and he does the thing and I lost him I had them in my grasp I could got him and I just blanked didn't see him either I didn't scroll up too high or whatever the case may be but are hurt and I'm hurt man I'm not gonNA lie I. Missed out on him and that was bad. So I ended up taking Robbie Gold because I forgot that we'll let existed I guess for a last minute attempt. But in conclusion. The draft was a little bit chaotic and I'm glad it was. It allowed me to get back in the swing things and I plan to do more of these more often share my results good imbed because you know not everything is perfect as we all make some mistakes as far as the draft results went. I think I took a situation that typically I find a bit rough. And I made the most of it. So getting three wide receivers. Who potentially could be top fifteen? In the League at any moment in time, it's not horrible. Right is not something that you can sniff at either. So I think for the better part of this situation, I did a good job. I think I did a good job and. I couldn't have probably done a better job, the added situation that ended up putting myself in in the first place. So. In. Reality Kudos to me I did that one I'm playing Yeah man that's the podcast for the day man I. Hope Everybody enjoyed that make sure you're doing your mark drives make sure you're doing your homework.

Episode 95: 2020 WR Strategy plus Sleepers and Busts

"They. Do. Welcome to episode ninety, five of the official established the run. Dot. Com podcast my name's of Levittown. I'm one of the founders here at Etr as always I'm joined by fellow Co Founder Evan Silva. I am also joined by our director of analytics Mike Leoni. And we are well aware that a ton of you have draft coming up. So we're continuing our positional preview series this time at the wide receiver spot. Evan what's going on? What's going on Leoni said he wanted to get into it on this show arguing about some wide receivers even use the term fight. We're GONNA fight. So, I'm here to fight. Yes I believe the Andre Hopkins will be a subject that will have to hit on here. Really what's going on? Not, too much come fully prepped to defend Deandre Hopkins? Against Evans. Silva's egregious attacks. So I'm excited for this podcast. Evans. Just like grinding these to find anything bad about deandre hopkins gas might. Be. HOLDING OUT kind she might have a contract dispute. Okay I I hope you guys have already listened to the quarterback and running back versions of this show. Go on these shows. These four mini series shows talk about high level strategy for drafting what we think is correct understanding relative player values and we will get to all that before we get into all that with wide receivers. I, know many of you have been slacking you've been out on t smell the roses you've been out on team sex you have not been putting in the work you needed to do to. Get ready for the NFL season. The good news is that we can help our kids live in continuously updating and also are bundled package is now live. If you plan to play DFS's season which I hope in suspect many of you do because in my humble opinion, it's the best form of fantasy. The bundle will be by far our best offer to get the draft yet in season package together for the lowest price that you can get. So head to the site to check all that out established run DOT COM okay. Wide Receivers, I want to zoom out for a second suggest a two part thesis Leoni. The first part of this thesis is as more teams implement three wide receiver sets as a base and more teams use four wide receiver sets. There's simply more viable wideout options fantasy just cause more of them are on the field, and also teams are obviously throwing at a higher rate than they did five ten fifteen. Years ago. So it appears incredibly deep on the other hand because there are so many more wide receivers on the field. The one that actually do get twenty five plus percent target shares in past centric offenses are even more valuable. So what are your thoughts on that for macro level Leoni about how the way the League has gone has changed how we should address the fantasy, the wide receiver position fantasy. Now that was the theory that I held until I did some research for Dink Meyer when he was writing an article for established Iran looking at macro trends in the NFL and I was surprised to see that that is happening long-term. If you go over the past decade over the past five, six years, we're seeing a lot more passing. We're seeing more spread out attacks. But if you look within the past five years two years ago versus five years ago, it hasn't shifted that much or as much as it seems we've seen you talk about guys with over twenty five percents target shares two, thousand, fifteen, there were nine than there eleven of nine, there eight under. Eleven last year. So I think we're gradually seeing that I think we saw big shift around two, thousand, fourteen, two, thousand, fifteen were headed in that direction and I expect as the NFL gets more analytics friendly for that to continue to evolve. But it is happening at a little bit of a slower pace than I feel like it's perceived it feels like slot receivers being used a lot more and we're getting more spread out attacks, Arizona, one of them which will revolve around the Deandre Hopkins talk about don't pass happier but spreading out more often. So I'm having a tough time figuring out exactly what to do with that and it seems like this year in particular. Even. Though we have a couple of dynamite receivers like a Michael Thomas with these huge target shares and we don't have as many Alpha's like that. We do have a lot more guys around the twenty five percent target share range or twenty percent, but really efficient and will hit on those and that rounds three through six range. Yeah. a common refrain we've heard is that wide receiver is deeper than it's ever been I and we can get into where that that's true or not just your initial thoughts on the wide receiver position. How deep do you think it actually goes? I think it's pretty deep I mean I think you can start get like even into the sixties and you've got guys like Paris Campbell. Who are really interesting late I think that it you know there are so many candidates to to finish within the top twelve I think that you could go like. A solid twenty, five deep on on wide receivers that I think are legitimate candidates to finish within the top twelve like my wide receiver. Twenty five is Michael Gallup where we're actually significantly above consensus on him less checked his is of PC ADP was wide receiver thirty, one but guys like Portland Sutton Michael Gallup DJ shark. Will Fuller Marquees Brown devante Parker. I mean, these guys are all consistently available in the sixth seventh round of drafts. And all these guys are very much in play to finish it as true wide receiver ones. We we also just had an absurdly talented wide receiver class get drafted in which adds to the depth of the position for sure. Yeah I. Think we'll get into more about how deep it really isn't all that in an intimate here I think the main theme of the wide receiver position this year though is these middle rounds and because of the RB thirsts that. We dove into on the last episode, the wide receivers get pushed down. so He's wide receivers that are available in rounds four through eight I mean let me read. You got some of the names who I like. You know who make it move for me a little bit between rounds four and eight, and this is the underdog. ADP rounds fourth rate you can get Adam Feeling Calvin Ridley Aj Brown Cooper Cup Terry, maclaurin, Tyler Lockett Dj Shark Decay Metcalf Willfuller. Brown Michael. Gallup Johnson Johnson Henry Rugs Jalen Rieger guys I mean that is ridiculous and so what we've seen is what I think is the quote Unquote Strategy for Home League as we talked about running back episode running backs early in the pound wide receivers through these middle kind of range here Evan I know you're on this middle round tear here in a big way like I am are there any names that stick out to you? You think that is the optimal to kind of go running back to out of the first three rounds and then we get into big time wide receiver production runs fourth rate. Now I definitely think in in Home Leagues. That's the way to go start with to RB's at least one R B, within the first two rounds and then start hammering wide receivers I i. think they'd Home Leagues are generally now full. Right. That's probably taken over. Home Leagues that wasn't necessarily the case four or five years ago but I think that it has at this point. See. You want to obviously build an excellent. What in really just I think you can out draft people using our rankings I think that our rankings are going to be better I, mean we crush wide receiver rankings last year relatives ADP and I expect to do that again you can start off with to rb's and just just out draft your your opponents in a home league using our rankings. I think that's very, very viable. Yeah. I know you don't WanNa go down the path in Atlanta construction but I d the we've talked a lot about how the wide receivers in this middle rounds are so strong relative to the running backs I would assume you agree with that and how would you play kind of a home league setting in these middle rounds? I agree wholeheartedly. It's hard for me to even pick out a favourite because of all the guys you mentioned. They all have great combinations of floor and ceiling you and the running backs in this range are all very fragile. They don't have it around three through six. There might be an outlier here too that we like you wrote about Jonathan Towers may be having around one upside, but there's a lot of guys like Leonard Fournette or even todd Gurley where it's shaky you it might look good to start the season, but it's shaky and running back is very volume dependent and if that volume disappears for any reason who've, but that's not gonNA happen for guys like Michael Gallup who. Saw almost the same target shares Amari Cooper did and is an offense. It's just full on wheels up. You know that's not gonNA HAPPEN FOR DJ. Charts he's GonNa see a huge amount of volume and he's a very talented receiver even without a quarterback an offense that might not be that good. If anything that might push him to throw quite a bit you know and you have guys teams that are just going to throw a ton. You'll. We mentioned Jared Goff Amount Ryan on the quarterback episode but you've got Cooper Cop Robert Woods Calvin Ridley in this range. So it just seems endless. You know it just seems like you can keep picking guy off after guy off and even as you fall out of that six round here, guys like Jarvis, Landry Christian Kirk Seven and eight, you know it's still of extends they're a little bit and in a home league, the eighty people might not be sharp and you can take some shots some upside guys like, marquees. Brown. WHO and higher stakes leagues I think people are buying it upside a little early in a home league might be easier to get that upside into your lineup. Yeah. Okay. The one thing is about relative value. Now, we just talked about all these guys that we live in rounds three through eight rounds four through eight. But what does that mean for the guys at the top right? Are we giving something up by saying what the relative value between I dunno atoms tyreek Hill, Julio Jones who go in the first year rounds versus guys like Dj Charge or Kevin Ridley? Or Terry maclaurin, our of these guys that are going significantly to three rounds later. So let's talk about the top Evan is a priority for you at all to get into that Michael Thomas Davante Adams tyreek Hill Julio Jones kind of ranges what you really doing I guess the question is where you doing will point to cut off the running back around one at what point are you okay with wide receivers around to I don't think I've taken a single first round wide receiver so far in any of my dress maybe maybe one or two, but I definitely prioritizing coming out of round one with a running back certainly anytime that I'm drafting within the top seven picks It would be a situation where I feel like I'm GonNa go zero RV like truly go zero RV like we did in that one football guys championship draft. Adam. where I'm traveling really really really late in the first round. Probably like only on the end or maybe at number at one eleven it would have to be a situation like that for me to take a first round wide receiver. Leoni, are we ending up with not enough of these Michael Thomas Davante Adams tyreek Hill Julio Jones types by a emphasizing the middle round of wide receiver too much. It's really difficult conversation because. As. We've seen roster construction can tend to be more important necessarily than the players you pick just because. As I said, I think we have a big edge and I think the edge of the players we picked Kinda comes more in that middle round and valuing those guys appropriately than it does everyone's got Michael Thomas and Julio Jones Rink somewhat similarly, I will say if you're picking again towards the and even if you're picking aether so. Thomas drops to there. There is an age that he has over other guys where you still know around to maybe you get Kenyan Drake coming back. You know maybe miles sanders this injury comes back around to if you feel like you can get that still get A. To get Michael Thomas over some of these other receivers is A pretty big deal and you could end up in a weird spot in round two that eighth spot is. The worst of the draft because. Let's say you panicking you take the running back and then Devante atoms Michael Thomas go you could end up in a really weird spot in round two. So I don't mind at around eight nine starting to think about Thomas, and Davante Adams. Okay when I mentioned those first and second round wide receiver notice that did not mention Deandre Hopkins I want to let Leoni go I in this debate and we can talk about from a math perspective y. you think De'andre Evan is undervalued the Andrea Hopkins a little bit despite we new team. Flatter. Target share. Out being. injured. So I mean the argument for Deandre Hopkins is one as far as pure talent top five receiver in the NFL maybe a top three receiver in the NFL I didn't I didn't know you I didn't know you were on team watch the tape Leoni. Team Grind, tape team, grind the listening to people who are better at watching the tape. Then be and assuming their opinions are correct. But the target shares he seen thirty plus percent guy, you mention those guys. There might not be as many of them as we move forward in the NFL. Now, he's not going to see that with Arizona because they're more spread out I can see that point, but I also don't think a guy's going to go from. A thirty three percent target share who's talented to a twenty three percent target share, and he's in an offense in Arizona where depending on how you think is offense goes. He there could be more targets available in Arizona than there were in Houston, just more pass at times and you guys had pat form on the paced show, and there's a couple of ways to interpret this because the first month of the year last year Berry. UPTEMPO Berry Pass. Happy. It was a disaster. They didn't have the talent in place they had to change things they went run heavier success the last three months of the season they slowed it down a little bit. Now, pets take seem to be that worked. We could see more of that this year my take is more. What they wanted to do, what they tried to do in the first month of the season, but they want to do, and now that they have deandre hopkins now that they've improved the offensive line now that it's Murray's second year, they're going to try and do that. So even if you, lower, Hawkins Twenty five percents target share or so he's going to see a ton of volume zenia tonic catches I like him mournful pr than happy PR. Efficiency, concerns there. But I just think he's going to get loaded up with receptions maybe shorter eight out routes and we've seen from him in the past that the floor there is huge and if something happens to Kirk you know. Isabela's still. Is Not, GONNA see meaningful target share Larry Fitzgerald getting a little bit dusty I still see past him seeing thirty percent target share even an offense that spread out. You said shows getting a little bit dusty I think we've been down this path for a few years now he's. Kind okay, Evan, you're GONNA start hot. What Larry Fitzgerald so for sure is gonNA start hot that ain't. GonNa help. Hopkins. But he'll. He'll probably be holding out during that time period. anyways. When he does return from his holdout. I I gotTA stop this. There's like a there was speculation that Andrea. Hopkins was holding out because he is known to be wanting a big contract extension and he. Sat out a couple of days due to a tweet hamstring and then people started speculate as he holding in that's what players are doing like Melvin Ingram and offer the chargers is holding in but then Hopkins was back at practices. So I'll stop with those jokes but the the concerns for me regarding Deandre Hopkins are our number one, the history of wide receivers, changing teams, John Paulson at four study on that it's true that. Also, a row visited this study on this recently, and wide receivers tend to lose production when they changed teams that should make sense intuitively because. There's a level of chemistry and there that needs to be established between a quarterback and his receiver. You you listen to like Kurt Warner talk and he's like a I played for a number of teams over the course of my career. Always, it would take about one full year from me to really. For everything to really click in the passing game. so I think that there are some like just in terms of your process there. There are some concerns there with being aggressive like aggressively ranking were aggressively drafting Deandra Hopkins there I? Think there's a concern within your process. If you're doing that deandre hopkins over the last half decade average one, hundred, sixty, six targets for game. In Houston and. he really didn't have very much target competition in Houston in although we think that Larry for dusty he's going to be out there running routes on every single play in the slot, and he's going to get you know a number of targets as his Christian Kirk who until he got hurt last year you know he was starting to come along I think those two players are going to be the slot receivers in the cardinals for receiver sets and it's going to take a different level of chemistry to be established between Collar Murray and the Andre Hopkins who's going to be on the outside like ninety, ninety, five percent of the time The way that deandre Hopkins plays, he's like a contested catch in a back shoulder receiver in that I think requires chemistry between the quarterback and timing that needs to be established, and there's very little practice time. He's already missed some of the potential practice time. There are no preseason games That's another concern. At the end. It's it's purely a projection to say that all of a sudden the cardinals are going to be competing for the League lead in in offenses pace because our an offensive snaps because they were eighteenth last year and they weren't good passing team last year. So you're also projecting a significant leap. In terms of the play of Cuyler Murray. Who really wasn't a very good pat I mean the there's arguments and he made the Gardner Minhsiu and I've seen this argument made I mean it's it's backed by statistical evidence. The Gardner Men's shoe was almost just as good of a passer as Colin Murray. was last year So I just think that there's a Lotta of hope in a lot of. A lot of assumptions being made about John Hopkins this year I think it's it's GonNa take a little bit more time than than people are anticipating this. This was a a great running team last year they were top ten in pure rushing yards. They were number two in rushing offense. They Dave a transition tag to You know they're running back Kenyan Drake I mean I. You know that that's how they had success offensively last season and I do think they're going to be a better passing team but I don't think that they're going to be putting a wide receivers in in the top five in fantasy points this year, and I also think the Collar Murray is being way overdrafted he's is eighty like quarterback three On on F F P C, we have quarterback seven. Yeah. It reminds me a little bit of Odell word seems so like it seems like, Oh, no brainer. He's really talented. He's GonNa play with Baker who's a rising star, and then next thing you know it's like a total disaster and I know that Odell suffered through injury suffered agreed offensive line play suffered through egregious coaching and maybe won't see all that in Arizona but yeah, I have in terms of rates of efficiency. Leoni, I think I would have concerns there and even if I would agree with you, that twenty five percent of the target is probably right but I would have efficiency concerns on de'andre. Beyond what we saw even relative to what we saw with. No doubt last year so. Herman's Meyer head an article recently, or at least a re tweeted an article recently from five, Thirty, eight and Andre Hot it was looking at a separation rates among wide receivers John Hawkins is not a separation receiver. so I. Just I think that there's a level, a level of chemistry that that needs to be established between the quarterback and. Orchards has to be like force-feeding targets to John Hopkins, which is what happened with him in Houston for year after year after year, and if you think about the like the way that like Mike Lee talked about this. Okay. Mike Lee of course is the. Cliff kings an offshoot of Mike. Leach Mike Leach does not view offensive balance as fifty fifty run pass. You use it as a a an equal distribution of the football. It's like you're getting all your playmakers involved. You know you're getting five or six guys involved. It's not forced feeding the ball to one individual guy. That's what happened for the last five years which Andre Hopkins in Houston? He's going to count ninety balls guys. Said Ninety Ninety Balls but yeah, we spent enough time a new colleges say. I'll agree with you guys I'll take coolio I'll take tyreek Hill I'll take those guys over de'andre. When you start to get wide receiver five probably still leaning on new can that's more I think we agreed the markets probably a little too high on him either way. But how far he falls down the rankings I'm optimistic. That's one thing I want to ask about because when I get back on the clock at the end of the second round, I don't really want Hopkins I don't really want Chris Godwin I. Don't really love Aaron Jones I feel like that back into that second round on my God. Is a mess right now, Kelsey and Kiddo already gone, and now what am I gonNa? Do have you found yourself in that spot owning what you've been doing in the back end of the second yeah. I have found myself in that spot and I think the worst thing you could do probably talk yourself into I kind of defended Todd Gurley on twitter I don't know what got into me the other day but I think the worst thing you could do is probably reach on a Todd Gurley type there I've. Trusted Art Etr rankings and I've Gone Juju Smith Schuster Amari Cooper at that turn even though it fuels aggressive relatively their eighty ps were really high on both those players and I think I'm fine with just starting to bulk up on your receivers. Even if it feels a little bit early, I think it's better than making a mistake just because. You, know sometimes you you're like I like this guy, but it's too early and then I think you force yourself into a mistake. Yeah. I think lobby were asking themselves based on the rankings LATTE. Evan. If you're using the rankings a lot of times late second round it's GonNa be staring in the face Juju and Amari. What have you been doing in the back end of the second round? I don't draft their. You know the It's thanks because that's where that's where you're coming back to you. After you're starting with the bell cow backs that everybody wants. So it's like A. It you know you just Kinda. Hope it guys that you want follow you there and very often they don't and you end up taking you know Godwin and Golladay or something like that, and you know it always feels too early. Yeah. Okay. I WanNa talk about the back end the wide receiver tears for second I. Think some people would say, wait a second now why she seems the because he's middle are so outrageously strong but there's actually a pretty sharp drop off after say round ten and you know there are some guys that I like I duNNo. If you can still get Brendan you can round ten probably not but I would say Curtis Samuel I would say Nikiel Harry. Maybe Allen lazard golden taking get back there. But I'm curious if you've noticed Evan that like after round ten, maybe wide receiver isn't quite as deep and you mentioned some guys that I'm okay with you know like Paris Campbell and guys like that. But nobody I'm like super super excited about wide receiver in rounds eleven twelve thirteen beyond the guys that I mentioned Curtis Samuel Harry Golden Teed I. Guess I'm excited whatever But yeah, I is it as deep once we get into that ten eleven twelve, thirteen rage yeah. I mean I, I think that there are you know Steven Sims. Josh. Reynolds I. Mean You know? I'm SORTA looking at this through best ball lands on where you're really just trying to build like you're trying to build like a group at position. in terms of guys that we're going to be using in redraft season long no, you know I. I would rather be taking bench running backs in that range guy like chase admins who by the way I just boosted up big time in our ranks. He's not going to be a late round pick anymore But. Now. I mean I think that in those twelve thirteen fourteen round you're trying to build in in a best ball draft you're trying to build you know wide receiver, five, six, seven, eight and I do think that there are a bunch of good guys to like add to your stable like Steven Sims is in the in the Josh Reynolds I think Mohamed to new is a guy who could get a lot of targets this year in New England. And he's like free and drafts. James Washington had a better season than I think any of US remember last year. He I think he's probably have the highest aid dot nebo had air yards this year in Pittsburgh So I think you're you're just trying to add to your stable but looking at in best ball draft air but looking at season-long redraft now I mean you don't want. To be relaxed if you're lying on any of these guys in a season long redraft, you're probably in trouble. Yeah, and that's the thing. Leoneans, like I. Want to have most you know three four, five, six of my top wide receivers before round ten because I kind of agree with the people that after around ten maybe it's not quite as deep have you noticed that what it should that too if so. Yeah I think it's not quite as deep as it seems it seems deeper in best ball because you don't have to pick one to start these guys and you can get some spiked weeks out of them. But you know you're sitting there trying to decide what is starting to kill. Harry. For a Patriots team that might be pretty run heavy and you know it could get dicey and that's why I think in those rows where we're seeing pound wide receivers. To take one or two of those guys for your bench even before you fill out your starting roster because you know we get around all the sudden we've got some. Running back candidates, Zach Moss and chase Edmunds who haven't just mentioned who we do lot the upside on and it's a lot easier to be taking one running back after another right there before those. Jobs at running back if you've already taken. Or five six wide receivers. If you are in a weekly managed league in, you're taking guys after route ten you're really swinging for upside McCall Hartman lasts a lot of the rookies. CHAGALL JALEN regular. CD Lamb I think they all have significant upside, but the roles are a little bit shaky. But in a manage league, that's fine. You can afford to way to out early in the season before injuries and hit the guys that you took the single digit rounds. Yep. Exactly. I. WANNA mention a couple of other deep flyers. You mentioned Chenault I think he's available in thirteen fourteen, fifteen i. think it's fine. India's too deeply like on around eighteen or so like it's Not Inconceivable for him to find a path and to be the player that you know every thought he was taking the second frig around ever mentioned Paris Campbell I. think that's an interesting one as well very, very late in bad didn't mention that you guys like stone late round flyers for people in redraft lease just maybe some breaks between now and we wanted to have some on their hands. To guys, I, like Michael Pittman. Same reasons you'd like Paris Campbell to an extent if something happens to t y Hilton, all of a sudden these guys are single digit picks the half to play. They're playing with a quarterback that. is getting a little dusty, but his wife as been very strong in the past few seasons it's a dome team with a good offensive coordinator that also Josh Reynolds is a guy taken a lot at the end of drafts that doesn't seem very sexy for the rams but. If feels like if anything happens to anyone on their offense, he's going to be thrust into meaningful role of cup goes down. If Woods goes down if one of the titans goes down and they start rolling these three wide receivers sat. So I think there are a lot of outs for Reynolds even if it might not look great from day one. And Tonio Gandhi golden into the mix although that's really thin because I'm not sure because you can have a role. To start the year, anybody else at the back end of the draft of the wide receiver position. Yet. No I I totally agree with the Union two guys of course It looks like Harris Campbell based on early camp reports is already the colts number two receiver behind ty help. His when when t Y Hilton has gone out, Paris Campbell has stayed in there and it's been like Zach pass cow or pittman getting getting the first team run. So I think that Peres Campbell is really locked into a like he has job security and I also think that the rams are going to be they're going to go back to playing eleven personnel like almost all the time this year and Josh Reynolds is going to have that secure role I don't even. Necessarily needs an injury I think that he's I mean they they need him in the offense he's their deep threat. You know he they talked they talked after the draft about one of the reasons they. Less need in Sean mcvay we're talking about they felt comfortable moving on from brandin cooks because they thought Josh Reynolds can be their deep receiver. Mirada Woods is a deep receiver. Cooper Cup is in a deep receiver they need that deep element Josh Reynolds GonNa play a ton of snaps this year. Kendrick born has become a lot more interesting heat drafting wide receivers that run four, six, eight, but Kendrick porn like it looks like he might not come off the field very much early in the season at least until Deebo gets back. Because the receivers in San Francisco just keep dropping like flies. But yeah, I mean there's some guys that stand out. Yeah for sure and we've talked about a ton of these late round guys. You can watch some of our draft replacing read the Articles Evans team previews top one fifty obviously in all of our top three hundred are always updating to keep up with all the news. We don't want to get too much into player takes now, but I think we've outlined a good structure here for our handling the wide receiver position in drafts this year, we'll be back next time to wrap up this four part miniseries to talk titans so. For the only for Silva for producer Luke, I am at a good luck everybody.

We're going to get into your dynasty rookie rankings tap fifty. But you add a little something something this year, which I'm excited about you. Also have an undrafted free agent running back five pack with bucks running back. Bruce Anderson Panthers running back Elijah Holyfield Texans. Running back to marry a Crockett titans running back. Alex Barnes giants running back Jonathan Hillman. I mean, I haven't even heard of some of these dudes yet you're about to give me some analysis on them. Yes. Yes. Yes. We're doing deliver some analysis. I just I you know, I kind of wanted to Jim these guys in the my top fifty. But I just couldn't find you know, they just weren't worth at the end of the day. We want to chase guys that have some draft capital. We want to chase guys that their teams made in an investment into them. I liked the Laming spots for these guys. And I like at least something about their profile. But I wanted to point them out. We'll start off with Bruce Anderson. He goes to Tampa Bay do Bruce Anderson. Well, first of all, let's just look at Tampa Bay step chart. I mean Payton Arbor, he's on a one year cheap one year deal. You know, he's a limited player. Ronald Jones showed us nothing as a rookie. And you know, there's just not a whole lot on the depth chart in Tampa Bay. I watched Bruce interesting really for the first time last night watched three games of and he's not. A guy that is super elusive. He's kind of a straight line super upright runner only thirty two passes and four seasons in college. But he's got enough size and enough straight-line speed at four five eight that I think he's at least interesting for for the deep dynasty league prospect Elijah Holyfield people know who he is he played Georgia. Of course, shared time there with the Andrea swift next year, I think the Andrea swift is going to be probably the number one running back in the class, really talented guy. But Elijah Holyfield was like the, you know, the tackle breaking grinder there. He goes to the combine he runs four seven eight. Of course, doesn't get drafted. But he goes to a pretty nice landing spot where all he's got to beat out as Cameron Artis Payne and Jordan scarlet who will talk about in a little bit fifth round pick to become the number two behind. Christian McCaffrey Demaria Crockett of the Texans played at Mizzou watch the Butch of him recently. And like you can you can tell why these guys aren't getting drafted. You know, even though they have big time athleticism, and he's he's he falls into that category. Five foot ten to twenty five ran four four flat with a thirty seven inch vertical at Missouri's pro day, but he's super inconsistent. When you watch him play does not have a passing game pedigree. But hey, he he goes to the Texans. You know, Lamar Miller is in the last year of his deal has been underwhelming as the Texans starter there. Number two back is Dante for men who never could quite make it back from his torn achilles last year that has been the no running back in NFL history known running back in NFL history as ever made it back successfully from torn achilles. So Jumeirah cock. It has a chance to ascend. In Houston pretty quickly in a high scoring offense titans. Running back. Alex barnes. You mentioned. He had the number three sparks score. Among all running backs in the two thousand nineteen draft class slash priority. Undrafted free agency class. He's another guy that you when you watch them, the athleticism really does not show up on his on his college film. But it did have a lot of carries a Kansas. He was pretty productive. He gets the ball a little bit. He's big June twenty six pounds, and he goes to Tennessee where they seem very committed under Arthur Smith to a run heavy philosophy. You look at the right guard that they took in the draft Nate Davis. He's a like a mulling right guard prospect, and I think that they are gonna you know, stuck there or put their chips behind Derrick Henry this year, and you. Look down the depth chart. You you got Dion Lewis in the change of pace role. But there isn't a number two back the the next guy, David food. Well, and it was really just a special teamer and it also coming off a season ending injury. So I like sparring is the name to remember and then Jonathan Hilaman who began his career at Boston College. And then finished his career at Rutgers was a committee back throughout that time. But he's got above average measurable another guy who runs in the four or five at two hundred and seventeen pounds. And you look at the giants got chart behind sake. One Barclay not a whole lot. You know? I think it weighing Dahlman is certainly beatable for a roster spot or or at least for number two jobs. So just wanted to mention those guys and then we'll get into the fifty. God I love it especially the situations that they're in. And there is a history of undrafted free agent running backs coming out of nowhere. Even as rookies in having some success. Let's get into some of the guys you did rank in the top fifty which includes by the way, some undrafted guys, including number fifty bangles wide receiver Stanley Morgan. Yeah. So let's start with the Bengals chart, you know, AJ green and Tyler Boyd or both in contract years. I'm sure that they will lock up one if not both. But you know, you never know that helps Stanley Morgan's prospects in Cincinnati. And then the other guy John Ross is sign long-term, but he's already been the subject of trade. Rumors, and he's really done nothing through two seasons Stanley Morgan graduated as Nebraska's all time leader in receptions, and yards was seen as a really good route runner coming out of college didn't drop anything. Was tested in the eighty ninth percentile Stanley Morgan not getting drafted. I think was maybe the single most surprising event. Of the entire three day process. And I think the Bengals got a guy that might contribute to their offense sooner rather than later with so many guys in contract years, and you know, guys not producing like, Josh John Ross. Forty nine is another receiver Seahawks wide receiver. John is Ursula. Yeah. That's what I'm going with. That's what I'm going with the he played it. Hawaii had one monster year. He's a small guy five nine one seventy five. But but he's going to be slot. I mean, he played slot back at Hawaii which runs a run and shoot offense super super productive in his final year there his level of intrigue was raised. Of course when Doug Baldwin retired and that puts Johner Sua very much on the radar radar as potentially Seattle slot receiver of the future. Number forty eight raiders wide receiver hunter Renfro. He was a fifth round pick. And it was a surprise. He didn't go to the patriots. Five ten one eighty six ran four or five nine. So clearly, you know, doesn't have the full package in terms of size and straight line speed. But he's a slot guy. He's a career over lifetime overachiever walks onto Clemson, which you know, if you've been paying attention this team wings national championships walks on their starts for four years. And you know, he is he just he profiles. Very similarly. I think to another Clemson receiver, Adam Humphreys, and I think he could be onto Renfro could be the raiders starting slot receiver from day one. You've got in Tonio Brown and tyrel Williams as primarily outside receivers. And then you know, they cut Seth Roberts. And you know, you look at who is competition would be be like Ryan grant who at this point is like an injury. Prone journeyman. So I think hunter Renfro could be they're starting receiver day one and give you some production right off the bat. I don't know if there's long-term upside is that high. But, you know, hey, you know, if if this team reaches a place where they're throwing the ball a lot, you know, he could it could be a candidate for one hundred targets or something, you know, within the next couple of years and be an actual fantasy asset. Let's get to number forty seven. It's a fourth round wide receiver with the Chicago Bears Riley Ridley, and I I know, you know, this. But yes, the younger brother of Calvin Ridley. Yeah. And I think that that and he's wrote running we're the reasons that he got drafted where he did. Because he wasn't very productive Georgia. Now they did play run first offense. But you know, he he didn't check that Bach for box for production. None of his measurable 's were very good. You know, he's he's sub two hundred pounds. He's kinda tall and kinda skinny, but I I suppose you could eventually replace Taylor Gabriel. She got I Don Robinson their long-term. You got free Burton their long-term got anything Miller in Chicago long-term, you have potentially long-term question marks about the quarterback position in Chicago. It'll be you know, this is a very big year. It's another very big year for Mitchell Trubisky. So, you know, I think I think he's he's probably a guy who you know, might be a good player in real life like a good third or fourth. Receiver in real life. But probably going to help us very much in fantasy anytime soon. Number forty six you have an undrafted free agent. It's a wide receiver for the dolphins. Preston williams. Yeah. Preston Williams went to Tennessee is a five star high school recruit failed a bunch of drug tests goes to Colorado state fails another drug test. You know, he really only played one big one full season in college. But he was wildly productive during that one season. And then and then he goes to his pro he's not invited to the combine due to a domestic violence issue that arose in two thousand seventeen he goes to his pro day, and he wasn't very good at his pro day ran four six plot. All the other measurable 's were pretty disappointing. You know, I clearly the guy has talent, you know. But it's just you know, there's obvious obvious reasons why he did not get trapped in now he goes to Miami. And everything's wide open. There. You know? They're doing a full rebuild the dolphins. Are everything's wide open. So he's got a ton of opportunity there. But he's going to have a very very short leash. So you know, there's there's a good chance than draft Princeton Preston Williams in the fourth or fifth round of your dynasty rookie draft. I mean, he could be cut before training camp. If he does if he makes the slightest mistake. Another undrafted free agents next. Saints running back Divino Zeke, Bo. Yeah. And you had a good amount of support before the draft. I know that Greg Cosell like them. Jeff Norris, loved them that Waldman like them. He also checks check boxes in terms of size and speed because he ran four five four at over tune in twenty pounds at Nebraska's pro day was not invited to the combine which I thought was kinda weird averaged seven yards per carry in his final season at Nebraska ten catch the ball. And you know, he kinda reminded me of the the old Minnesota running back replay was drafted by the titans David Cobb a little bit, but he can catch passes. And that's a big deal any real lot faster at his pro day, then David Cobb did. So I think he's kind of like a rich man's version of David copy goes to he goes to New Orleans where they have, you know, the best offensive line and. League or at least one of the three best offensive lines in the league, and he's going to essentially be the direct backup. I think for Latifi is Murray if something happens to latavius Murray, all of a sudden divine zig bow you know, could find himself in a ten to fourteen per game. Roll in a very productive offense behind a great offensive line. I think he's kind of an exciting fourth round dynasty rookie pick. How about the next guy in your list? It's another running back late in round seven dolphins running back miles Gaskin felt like he was at U dub playing for Washington for like ten years. I swear that guy was running back for Washington for like ten years. Yeah. He had almost a thousand career rushing attempts. So a lot of a lot of wear on the tires. I guess, but it's also an indication that hey, you know, he was earning. Those carries for a long time. And you know, no one could beat them out. You know, isn't super attractive in terms of his you know, his size and his measurable. But he does have that track record of being a high volume work worse. You know at a pretty at at a power five school and any went to you know, again a dolphins team where they're they're not gonna have long-term commitments any of their other running backs. Kenyan Drake contract is about to come up. And you know, Kaelin Balaj was the guy who was drafted by essentially. A different kind of regime, or at least under a different plan, and you know, as a fourth round pick. They're not gonna have a whole lot of loyalty to him. So I think there's just going to be a lot of competition in this backfield in both the short in the longer term and miles Gaskin as as as as shown, you know, at least at a at a high rated college that he can hold off competition in that he can handle a big workload. And they how do we get a lot of fantasy points. It's probably guys to get a lot of touches. Number forty three another running back from a big school. This one's with the Bengals Rodney Anderson who really talented, but he just had a lot of trouble with his health. Yeah. We've got back to back Bengals running back here. Both drafted in the six round. So we can just knock them both out. I think that Rodney Anderson would be more like the direct backup to Joe mixing and preview on Williams would be like the direct backup to Giovanni Bernard. Because Rodney Anderson is more of a, you know, he's two hundred twenty pounds. And if he can stay healthy, which almost never did at Oklahoma. What if you could ever stay healthy? Then, you know, I look if if he had stayed healthy in his college career, he might have been the number one running back drafted in this class. But he's more like the feature back type and then on Williams super super productive at sector, saying them did not test particular, particularly well, but wasn't terrible. But I think that he is going to end up as more of like a change of pace. You know, passing down specialist in the Giovanni Bernard mold, and I think that the Bengals I mean, they've kind of given us indications that they want to move on from Giovanni Bernard sooner rather than later. They drafted Mark Walton in the fourth round last year and this year there they drafted two running backs in the six. Number forty one. That's keep it rolling on the runningback train. I really liked this guy. I watched him against Penn State and some other games. Quadri? Olusen from Pitt is a hammerhead. Yeah. Two hundred and thirty pounds. So he's one of the biggest backs in this class. And he was not a guy that I watched before the draft. But I did watch him after the draft. And yeah, I mean, that's that's exactly what he is. He's a big banger. And I think that you know, he's kinda like what the falcons have wanted Brian Hill to be maybe. And then you know, you look at the top of the falcons depth chart. Devante Freeman has has really struggled with injuries in recent seasons. Multiple knee injuries. And also a foot injury last year and then of groin surgery which sent him to injured reserve now, and he's also had three concussions in his career. Now, he said to be one hundred percent. But you know, I think that there's legitimate concern is his body starting to break down. I mean, he's a little guy. He's taking an awful lot of hits at the NFL. Level. And then you know Smith is coming off knee surgery too. So, you know, it's not crazy to think that Quadri Allison who get involved here. If he has a big training camp and preseason kind of carves out a little bit of a role in the falcons backfield. And then that could turn that can always turn into more as the season progresses. Next up. We keep it rolling. And we got number forty Redskins wide receiver Kelvin Harmon at NC state. This is an interesting one Evan because he had a really productive college career. And I think I did he leave score early. I think a lot of people thought he would get drafted high. And then when people actually started a watching them in Doug inulin of it just didn't happen. Yeah. I mean, he's he's clean off the field. Really is never had an injury. So. Yeah. I mean, the NFL I think that there that the NFL is not is not valuing big receivers as they used to. We saw a lot of guys you know, that are big receivers kind of go later than expected decay Metcalf win early third round Akeem Butler win in the fourth round. Kelvin Harmon is a six round compensatory pick. And he was the thirty third pick in the six round. So he was very very close to being a seventh round pick. And you're right. He was super productive for three seasons at NC state. They're playing with Ryan Finley, you know, big six foot two two hundred and twenty two pounds, really great hands. But did not test. Very well. And did not separate very well in college where he played almost. Strictly outside receiver. I kinda wanted to see him as a big slot receiver in the NFL. But I don't think that we're going to get that. What I think we're going to get is Kelvin Harmon pushing Josh dachshund for playing time this year that disappointing former or two thousand sixteen first round pick, Josh dachshund. I think that Kelvin Harmon is going to compete with him. And I think that Terry MacLaurin is going to compete with pull Richardson as the the sort of for the sort of deep threat role. And I think fray Quinn. He's kind of locked in as their slot receiver, the the the very low investment Kurtz Kelvin harming in these rankings. But I do think he's got a shot at early career opportunity if he can beat out Josh dachshund, much more physical player than John. Stockton is. Been looking forward. Ask you about this one number thirty nine giants quarterback. Daniel Jones, your boy, your boy, Daniel Jones. Why is he my boy? So we've got to stick up for some of you gotta stick up for I'm sticking, I'm sticking up for the fact that everybody acts like it's the biggest idiotic move of all time. When so many people that are saying that literally never watched the dude play. And I don't remember them saying that when the bears took Trubisky is it a dish on Watson, Patrick Mahomes. I just think it's funny that everybody like acts like they totally. No like, they like if if you say this all the time about team getting volume of draft choices if we know anything about the draft. It's that we don't all know, right? Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. And you know, he's he's an athletic guy. He wasn't like a producer as a scrambler really at Duke, but he's very athletic. So that's a good good notch on his profile. They're gonna drop them into an offense where they revamped the offensive line. The offensive line looks pretty good on paper. I mean, you know, we'll do our offense of line rankings. Eventually, but I, you know, I think last year we would definitely had him or we definitely had them bottom three bottom five, and I'm thinking now might have them like in the I don't know sixteen to twenty three range, and that's, you know, a pretty big step up from last year after adding Kevin Zeigler and Mike remers and getting back. John olay peo- from injury Nate soldier. We'll we'll be in his second year in the offense will will Hernandez will be. You know, we'll we'll we'll be in his second year in the NFL. So the offense of line. Suddenly looks like it could be competent. It'll be interesting to see do we see Daniel Jones play this year because he's a six overall pick in the draft and those guys tend to play in their first seasons. If season starts to circle the drain with ally. Manning, I you know, because he plays a devalued position. And because you know, I I didn't particularly love him as a prospect. He's going to be late you give me low in these rankings. But he does have the athleticism, and he does have at least a decent supporting cast. I really would wish that, you know, he if you wanna see him succeed like I think you keep owed L Beckham, you know, because she impr- increases his chances of succeeding, but they've got Evan Ingram. We've got golden take. They got sterling Shepard. They got the improved offensive line. And I think they'll be able to drop them into a little bit a little bit more favorable of a spot than he's probably given credit for. Number thirty eight chiefs running back, James Williams. I believe this is the highest undrafted free agent. You have. Yeah. I think. Yeah. He yeah. He definitely is. We can do the the chiefs running backs back to back here because I just it's going to be like an up for grabs job between these guys. And I think that Darwin Thompson being a compensatory sixth round pick the forty first pick in the six round and then James Williams being UDF eight it's not really that different. You know? But I I do have Darwin Thomson ahead of James Williams because they clearly valued him more. They really had Darwin Thompson higher on the board considering they drafted one. And then, you know, sign one in priority undrafted free agency, James Williams caught a million passes Washington state playing with or playing in Mike Leach's offense. And I think has some similarities to James white. So James Williams is and he's going to a great offense where the numbers one. One and two running backs are like kinda journeyman types. I mean, they mean Williams has been around the league a little be played awesome down the stretch last year. Ten touchdowns in the final six games over one hundred total yards per game. During that stretch. What he's you know. He's still a guy that you know, they don't have a whole lot committed to that extension that he signed what I think it was like three years and nine million. You know, that's not a big commitment. And then Carlos Hyde has been around the lead quite a bit as well. And Garwin Thompson James white are sort of the same style of player. I think that James white is the better receiving back and Darwin Thompson is the better runner. Darwin. Thomson led the nation in yards after contact per rushing attempt this past year almost six yards after contact per rushing attempts at Utah state with hyper hyper efficient, but doesn't have the the receiving pedigree that James Williams does. So I'm kinda, you know. Hedging my bets here putting them back to back. But I think that they both have value. And I think that they should both be drafted in dynasty rookie drafts. Where you've got four or five rounds? Okay. What about this next? One is an interesting one from a dynasty perspective. Redskins running back Bryce love fourth round pick. I think was higher than people thought he would go after that knee injury. And it's interesting. He put videos out there to show his progress. But I know Dr Chow who joins me on the raw sucker football podcast, a former chargers team doctor. He didn't he didn't really think that those those videos were really all that encouraging. Yeah. And there were multiple reports about Bryce Lee Bryce love continuing to experience soreness in his surgically repaired knee. You know, it seems to me just having done this over, you know, twelve years that the level of I dunno medical like Putin see in in terms of like surgically repaired knees is just so much better at the NFL level than at the college level. And you know, I I actually was surprised that Bryce love got drafted. I thought that he was not going to get drafted. Then he goes to a landing spot where you know, you gotta Adrian Peterson. There. You got Darius guys there? You got Chris Thompson got so much AP. Ryan, you know, if you so many bodies how? In house, you're gonna work in the NFL too. I mean, he he was like a really exciting runner at Stanford. But you know, he's below he's his size is not where you want it for feature back, and he wasn't used in the passing game very much at Stanford. I think he has forty six catches and four years. So I don't know. I you know, I think this is sort of a bet on talent situation having him here at number thirty six which in twelve team dynasty league. We'd be a fringe third fourth round rookie pick. But I think that that's probably where he belongs because there's just such a lack of clarity. Where does she fit long term? You know, easy going to max out as maybe like an Austin echo type can even be Austin Ecuador tight because we haven't seen them play very much in the passing game. What's the status of his knee? You know, it's he's a tough one to figure. Yeah. That will be there's a lot of different factors in play there. What about? Let's get to what was he thirty seven. So let's get to now. Number thirty thirty five at thirty five Jordan scarlet with the Panthers. He's a guy by the way that played in the US army bowl. He was he was pretty good prospect at a high school going to Florida. Yeah. In kind of underachieved at Florida never really took the reins as a you know as a fulltime feature back. What's productive in his opportunities? And I think the town is clearly there what kind of hindered him where some off field stuff at Florida. But you know, the Panthers used a fifth round pick on him. Again. You look at this Panthers chart he's going to be competing with. And he's got I think enough size to theoretically be a feature back in plenty of speed you timed in the four fours. So and so's going to beat out Elisa Holyfield, we already discussed way back, you know, in the U DFA five pack and then Cameron Artis Payne to be the number two back behind Christian, McCaffrey. So all of a sudden, you Christian McCaffrey suffers you know, suffers an injury. He's out a few weeks, and we're looking at Jordan scarlet as a potential fantasy starter, you know, in a pr-. Good offense with an offensive line that play pretty well last year, and they supplemented quite a bit with you know, trading for Greg little and signing parodies from the the Broncos. So yeah, I I kinda like Jordan Scarlett, I think he is a very viable late third round dynasty rookie pick in a better better leaning spot than than people might think. Another quarterback here Evan. It's Redskins quarterback DeWayne Haskins to the fifteenth overall pick. Again, you know players are devalued position in normal in regular standard fantasy football leagues dozen at a lot of mobility. I think that he could end up being, you know, a famous factor eventually, but with so many guys coming into the league that can supplement their fantasy scoring with being a dual threat like Kylo Murray, and you know, Sean watching in recent years and Josh Allen. I think that the the kind of. Statue, you know, pocket quarterbacks. I think that they will be able to succeed in the NFL in real life. But just not that the terrible in fantasy you plan to in a two quarterback or super flex dynasty league. You know, then obviously, you you gotta really bumped Wayne Haskins up. But I think that's where he belongs. I think he's long-term number two fantasy quarterback in in like a regular dynasty league. How about Jags tight end? Josh oliver. They took in the third round. Yeah. They took him with the top seventy pick. He was not a blocker at all at Saint Jose stays. He was receiving tight end. And you know, so that kind of tells me because they took him so high, you know, that they're comfortable with his strengths and weaknesses and that they're probably gonna use him as a receiving tight. And you look at the competition that he has for playing time not very stiff in Jacksonville. Jeff Suame, James O'Shaughnessy, Ben Koya check. I mean, Josh Oliver is a guy who's six five to fifty and runs four six three, and you know, trying to balls at ninety balls at San Jose State. I think he went to a pretty intriguing landing spot. You look at history of Nick foles. He's throwing the ball Suzette Gertz. You know, another tight end with any other player in his NFL career. You know, ten Josh Oliver kind of be the the the poor. Man's Aker tes to Nick foles in Jacksonville. I think that that's maybe what the judge are hoping for. Next up. We've got number thirty two Seahawks wide receiver Gary Jennings. This was a guy that really popped out to me every time that I watch will Greer play before the traffic going who is this guy who's this guy? 'cause I just I just started with the quarterbacks and hadn't even looked at any of the receivers. And it was Gary Jennings is a vertical slot receiver. Six foot one about two hundred pounds. And he blew it up at the Combi eighty third percentile spark four four two in the forty average fourteen yards per reception in his career Doug Baldwin leaves. And you know, every everyone kind of gets elevated in that Seattle passing attack. We're gonna get to decay Metcalf on the next show. He's going to obviously be in the top twenty five, but I wound up liking decay Metcalf. More after the draft than I did before the draft because I think it was a good landing spot for him. I think he's an excellent landing spot for Gary Jennings, potentially, you know, as another guy who has a shot to be Seattle. Long-term new slot receiver. Number thirty one the last one for this week. We'll get to the top thirty the next couple of weeks but number thirty one Redskins wide receiver. Terry MacLaurin who got a lot of buzz like in the pre draft process senior bowl. And he he's with his college teammate Dwayne Haskins with the Redskins. Only had about seventy catches in his college career. But you know, he was really only asked to do one thing. They at Ohio State. It's interesting. They, you know, they use like Paris Campbell in this certain role, and he really never diverts from that. He was like a drag route and flat route runner Terry MacLaurin was the guy who kind of strikes the field a little bit more. And you know, he's he kind of reminded me of devry Henderson the old Saint swag receiver. Excellent gunner at Ohio State made fifteen special teams tackles created takeaways as a gunner. I just don't know. You know, what what what is his true route inventory in the NFL gonna hold? I it's hard to say you watch these Ohio State receivers, it looks like they're really really limited. But they're only being asked to do, you know certain things I think that Peres Campbell is going to be able to expand. I'm not sure about Terry mcchord. I just don't know. But I think that you know, if you just look at what they the talent that they have the young talent that they have in Washington. I think he has a chance to be the Redskins like deep threat of the future. And then I think Kelvin Harmon has a chance will be at longer to be the Redskins possession receiver of the future in twig. Tree Quinn to be the slot receiver of the future with Wayne Haskins. Of course quarterback. Evan. You are the man you outdid yourself again. And here's the deal.

I know some of this stuff you've kind of already tweeted about, but I love as you dive into your research getting some pearls of wisdom and things that you're noticing, and it's interesting because three of them have to do with the Baltimore Ravens. You're, you're finding a lot of nuggets out with the Baltimore Ravens. Let's start with what your what you've discovered as it relates their quarterback Lamar Jackson. Right. Well, there are a lot of moving parts with the Baltimore Ravens, of course last year. Lamar Jackson replaced. Joe flacco in week eleven. He was the quarterback eight in fantasy football from that point on. He did not go over twenty five pass attempts in any of his seven regular season starts he did get to twenty nine pass attempts in the playoff loss to the chargers after the ravens fell behind. But in the in the regular season he did not he did average seventeen carries for seventy nine point seven rushing yards per game. And that's really what propelled is. Fantasy value late in the season. If you remember we talked a lot about Lee season, whether he would have a true ceiling game you know a game where he may be threw two touchdown passes through for two hundred yards. Ran for one and ran for like eighty yards. Never really came together. But he, he was really, really consistent again. He was the number eight number eight overall fantasy quarterback across his starts. You also have to, and people are, too low on the mar Jackson, I think entering two thousand nineteen there's this perception that you just can't throw. Well, he averaged over seven yards per pass it tempts as a rookie that was much higher than Joe flacco 's rookie year yard for passage captain Joe flacco entered a situation where he was the likely starter for the ravens Lamar Jackson as a rookie was. He I mean he handled the second team duties and barely played in the first half of the season during the offseason, they revamped his past trick, or they're turning over two hundred ninety six targets from last season's roster crabtree's gone. John Brown has gone in his marquees Brown in his miles boykin. They are expecting more from Chris Moore, and Mark Andrews had an outstanding rookie season which we're gonna. Talk about in a minute you go back and look at Lamar Jackson in college. And he's year to year progression in his first season at Louisville completed, fifty four percent of his passes. Second year fifty six point two third year fifty nine point one. You got better every season. He entered the seas entered his the NFL as a relatively young rookie at twenty one years old. I really liked the promotion of Greg Roman two fulltime offense coordinator last year was kind of working under mardi morning. Wag read Roman has a history with tyrod Taylor in column capital. Both of those guys had their career best seasons under Greg WI with Greg Roman as offensive coordinator in buffalo and San Francisco respectively. And they're just this, this general perception that Lamar Jackson can't throw. I I understand it because he did have a really high off target throw rate last year. It was the second highest in the league among thirty eight qualifying quarterbacks. Things didn't always look pretty for Lamar Jackson. He throws the ball from a narrow base. You know he can get wild at times. But I also think that he's going to get better. And I think that a lot of people are not giving him enough room for growth entering a second season. I think the arrow kind of like it was at Louisville is gonna teeter up the more and more he plays. I love it. Now you mentioned his skill guys. What about specifically, you know, some of his skill guys new guys, like Mark Ingram? Yeah, Mark Ingram. So the ravens signed marking the three years, fifteen million dollar deal. First of all, you have to understand that league last season. I mean they were playing with. Kind of scrub back field. I mean, they, they actually changed their backfield in at a corresponding time to win. They change their quarterback. They came out of their week, ten by and they got rid of outs Collins, they pulled buck Allen out of the backfield, and they went with a three man backyard of Gus Edwards kinda fix in, in time Montgomery. Montgomery is going. I mean they just let him walk. He's, he's like now a backup. A third stringer four stringer on the jets. Gus Edwards in Kenneth Dixon are back. But the ravens wanted to upgrade on those guys. But this were highly successful late in the season. And now the ravens are, you know, they have talent upgrades on that in Mark Ingram and injustice hill. Justice hill is way more dynamic than any of the running backs other the other the any of the other running backs in this conversation. And I think Mark Ingram is. A an upgrade on all three of those guys that we mentioned Gus Edwards can't fix in an time Montgomery. I think that for the role that he is going to play and I still think it's gonna be a two or three man backfield but for the role that he is going to play. It is like as a direct replacement for Gus Edwards who averaged seventeen and a half carries and Jackson starts and draw nothing to the table in the passing game it during that weeks. Eleven through seventeen stretch. Gus Edwards had one reception on one target and Mark Ingram. Can bring a little bit more than that? So I think there's a clear upgrade, their, the ravens are also missing the second most carries inside the five yard line. They're missing thirteen carries inside the five yard line from last year's team. And I think that that's probably going to be primarily Mark Ingram's role win. They use running back in those situations. There are some concerns, though, okay? Working room. You just the fact that he projects is the lead runner on the NFL run. Heaviest team that, you know, makes sense intuitively, logically that working is going to have a productive season. But there are a couple of concerns, first of all, you know, and we've talked about this acknowledging him over the years quarterbacks that can run tend to scramble when they're reads are covered as opposed to check in the ball down, and the monarchs action. Did this first of all, you're, you're not you're not you're dealing with a low number of, of passes to be distributed within the offense because the ravens were the run heaviest team from weeks. Eleven thirty seventeen last year this year, they project is the run. Heaviest team in the NFL. So the passing game distribution is limited to begin with. But then you add. Any element of. You know, just a scrambling quarterback, he's going to take off before he shuts down and just here's a stat. So Mark Ingram last year played with drew Brees threw breeze, targeted running backs nine times per start in on twenty nine percent of his PASOK temps last year. Lamar Jackson target running backs three point six times per start that's less than half the drew Brees half drew Brees and on just fifteen percent of this past attempts last year. That is half of what drew Brees. You know, Gruber's target rates are running backs last year and then. Lamar Jackson in only seven starts last year. Finished eighth in the NFL in red zone Carey she had thirty seven red zone Carey's so he's backing to cut into Ingram's touchdown production. So we're not intimidating really any receiving roll out of Mark Ingram. I mean three point six targets running backs for game that didn't get it done. You know to to produce like PR value from our Ingram, and then he could get squeezed in scoring position as well. So he's a really hot button player this off season. Some people just think oh, he's not the greatest the greatest Rb to pick that you could conceive of, but I think he's going to get squeezed in the passing game and in scoring position. And actually think he's a little bit over overrated this year. I like that. Evan and it's it is a good point about throwing the ball to the running backs. Now, you also mentioned marquee Andrus, and you and I were talking. I didn't even realize I remember I think I think he caught a big touchdown pass in the chargers game. I called against the ravens, but you had some thoughts on Mark injuries for this season that people need to know about. Yeah. Third round pick last year. So. She had one of the best rookie titans seasons in recent NFL history. And, you know, he was drafted in the same draft that they use a first round pick on Hayden. Hearst hitting her, of course, broke his foot coming out of the gate, hidden hearse look like he's going to be a big part of the offense late in the preseason. I think it was the third or the fourth preseason game. Lamar really sure connection with hating Hearst as well. They wanted him to be a big big time player in in their offense. And that is a concern for Mark Andrews, two thousand nineteen usage. But then Mark Andrews can be hard to pull off the field. Okay. Six foot five to two fifty six four six seven coming out of Oklahoma where he was extremely. Reductive. I mean jumps right in the NFL and produces. He was among all NFL tight end not just rookie tight ends fifth among all NFL tight ends in yards per route run. Last season yards for route run on. We've talked about over the years is one of the better predictive stats that pro football focus generates. And if you just go back and look at the tight end the rookie tight end that have led in this particular metric over the years, you know, it's, it's rob gronkowski. It's it's all the big time players. Hunter Henry all the big time tight ends of leading this statistic and Mark Andrews is the latest his five hundred fifty two yards were the fifth most by a rookie tight end in the last decade. And he averaged sixteen point two yards per catch last year, which were second only behind OJ Howard's sixteen point six. So man, this was a really, really productive rookie tight MC's and that kinda flew under the radar. He made a lot of big plays. He's got that size that links that speed of tighter. End that can win down the seam and truly can be a field structure. I think that hating hers is actually more of a possession tight end and Mark Andrews can be the field. Stretching tight end in this offense in that playoff game that we mentioned all top with Lamar Jackson where he had his most pass attempts all season at twenty nine pass attempts. Mark Andrews led the team and targets at seven targets in that game. And I think they were going to see more games this year with Lamar Jackson and at twenty five to thirty pass attempt range. I don't think he's gonna get a whole a whole lot higher than that. But I think we're gonna see more games in that twenty five to thirty pass attempt range, and you'll if Mark Andrews can get five to seven targets per game on a more consistent basis, he's going to be a guy that we can consider as streamer week to week right now. Like him best as best ball titan to were tied to three. Three. I saw on on ESPN. They have ranked as the number twenty six overall fantasy tight end. You know, he's got way when he's at upside from that. I mean he's got upside to finish top twelve top fifteen among tight ends. So I think people are really sleeping on this, dude. And, you know, just not realizing how how productive his rookie season was and what that can mean for the future because we've seen the rookie tight end that produce right out of the gate know they have they tend to have success going forward. Speaking of tight ends, you know, Eric e Brown is a guy that surprised a lot of people last year. Evan and even I not being a fantasy guru half to think that there's gotta be some regression there in terms of his touchdowns, right? And that's the place to start, you know, clearly it's very unlike scored fourteen touchdowns, again he had thirteen receiving and one rushing last year. And what happened is that the, the progression of the season just worked out. So perfectly for Eric Brown, of course, playing with Andrew luck. You know what he's not losing that this year, laying with Andrew luck was a huge boon to his production career, highs appro across the board. I mean he had six sixty five catches it over seven hundred yards. You know, and there were especially during the really thin days of TY hilt, who dealt with every injury in the book. I mean, they were weeks where it was who's the ball going to go to the sides. Eric Hebron and that is going to change this year. I went back and looked at the games in which Jack loyal place, Jack Doyle, of course. Colts. Number two, really their number one tight end as your as you'll hear here. Here Jack Doyle is gonna be back from from his injuries. She played in six games last year. In no six games. We're just isolating to those six games in which Jack Doyle played he played three hundred thirty one snaps and Eric, Iran played one hundred sixty four okay. Jack Doyle out targeted had more had thirty three targets. Eric Brown had twenty two targets in those six games. Eric Hebron average eight point eight targets in games missed by Jack Doyle and four point four targets. When Jack Doyle played Jack Doyle was essentially the starter and Eric Brown was a situational player. Now, you add in the addition of Devon punches who really is kind of he can be used similar similarly to Eric Hebron, Peres Campbell who's going to be a better slot receiver then was Chester Rogers, and she why Hilton healthier. This is not a good situation for Eric Brown. And every time that he gets drafted. That same range as hunter Henry. Everett, Evan Ingram and OJ Howard, and even Vance McDonald. I mean, I haven't been tight end fifteen and he gets drafted as tight end five or tight end six he's the most overvalued player in fantasy football right now. Eric hebron. Yeah. That doesn't surprise me. I feel like a lot of people chase last year's points last year's touchdowns. Let's, let's move it away from tight ends. Let's move it to some other guys that, that your higher on kind of, like Mark Andrews, that maybe people aren't really thinking about how about in Denver. Yes. Good agenda. I talked about the day shot Hamilton quite a bit. But, you know, really wanna continue to drill this guy because he's so cheap and dress because he's a thirteen through sixteen round pick at this point. And he's got a lot more opportunity. And I think he's a better talent than is commonly given credit for. So it will Sanders. Dr Chow believes that Emmanuel Sanders to open the season on reserve PUP. How I mean how is this guy even going to be a factor after that, you know, reserve PUP would of course cost him the first six games this guys thirty two years old coming off a late season achilles tear? And this just I this is a I think he's unfortunately, I love him angel Sanders. But I think he's a guy to better bet against probably for the rest of his career, and day, Sean, Hamilton is going to play that role after a mango Sanders Tories achilles after Maria's Thomas trade. They Sean Hamilton had twenty five catches over the Broncos final four games. You know, we're talking about six seven catches a game that that's highly lucrative in a p PR setting you go back and look at. Some of the receivers with whom Joe flacco, the Broncos new starting quarterback has ripped. And, you know, his first number one receiver in the NFL was Derek Mason. And I think the day Sean Hamilton is kind of similar to Mason, a guy who wins with hands in routes and is going to win in the in the Sydney interior portion of the field. And then you think about like in-kwon boulder, another guy who won with hands and routes on the interior portion of the field. And I think the day Sean Hamilton is going to play that amenable Sanders role as the slot receiver. He ran sixty three percent of his routes in the slot last year and courtroom Sutton, and Tim Patrick are going to open the season as the Broncos outside receivers. So. You know, I like that I think that's going to be a really friendly area four day. Sean Hamilton to exist in rack up targets and rack up catches and, you know, high-percentage targets from Joe flacco, really all year long certainly in the first six games when it may Emmanuel Sanders is on P UP. But I think even after that, I think they Sean Hamilton is going to be difficult for the Broncos to pull out of that role because he's going to be efficient. He's gonna get opening in a form on fuel bond with Joe flacco, just like there at Mason did way back when. I think that's a pretty good point. What about all the the hype about how great devante Freeman is looking in Atlanta. No Tevin Coleman. Now evan. I mean, could this be a big year for devante? Yeah. No Tevin Coleman you mentioned on one of our recent podcasts that you thought that Todd Gurley would be like a Baker break guy guy. Swings teams you know swings fancy teams this year. And I fully agree with that. I think that devante Freeman to be like that as well. Now he doesn't cost as much as Todd Gurley. He's going about around or two later, then Todd Gurley arou- about around and a half later, then Todd Gurley at this point. But he's, I think he's a boomer bus guy, and there are a lot of reasons to expect him to boom entering a season. Devante Freeman has never had this high of volume projection, you know, and that's with polling Kevin Coleman out of the offense. That's with the falcons just likely to run more this year. They finished thirtieth in the NFL in rushing attempts last year and a lot. Out of that was due to the fact they lost so many dudes on defense on Jones bolt. They're starting safeties early in the year. Great Jarrett miss time during the season. And their defense was just a complete sieve. They gave up the eighth most points in the NFL. They were in constant shootout situations. To what they did in the Aussies may gave James carpenter Tyson brillo end Jim on Brown all all offense environment. Of course, priests significant contracts, not huge contracts. But definitely guys that are, you know, competing to start at very worst kind of contracts, like sixty eight million dollars per year. And then they used to for front picks on the right guard. Chris Lindstrom and probable. Right. Taco Kayla mcgarry so that signals a want to. Take more advantage of, of what they have up front and become more of a running team. And you know, I think that devante Freeman if you look at just his if you just keep so he opened last season. It was just a complete disaster. But if you take away just remove those two games, and you look at his previous sixteen games in the NFL he's got him. We'll fifteen hundred yards from scrimmage. He's got fifty catches. He's got nine touchdowns. And if we could get, you know, fifteen or sixteen game season out of him through something like that he's going to crush his late third round average draft position, the reason for trepidation in Atlanta regarding Dr devante Freeman is the fact that he's body, maybe breaking down, you know, in this is where the downside comes in. He spring multiple knee ligaments at, at the end of two thousand seventeen he aggravated that injury. Sorry in two thousand eighteen he missed the first three games he sprained his foot in week six last year. And then he wound up needing groin surgery and that, that shut him down for the season. But if you look at his competition for touches in Atlanta, it's not real, imposing Ito's Smith. Had a pretty mediocre first season and is coming off a knee scope, you know, Quadri all listen kind of an intriguing banger, you know, big back out of Pitt but, you know didn't catch passes, the fifth round pick Brian Hill. You know, a guy that other kind of picked up off the scrap heap before, you know, his bounced around spend some time with the Bengals had some big runs late last season. But you know not a guy that they have a whole lot invested in. So devante Freeman. I mean I I've been hammering him myself. But there is significant downside there. And at the end of the day, I think that he. It does phone that bucket of guys that are boomer bust, and are gonna make or break in swing fantasy seasons. You put in Kyle Murray in that category. Yeah. I mean, not as much because he's not going to, you know, he's not gonna cost you a third or not. You're not gonna cost you a third round pick. But I do think that he is a guy that can have a big fancy season. It can be that next. You know, we've seen dual threat quarterbacks have big time data. See production disown watch it a couple of years ago scored more fantasy points as a rookie that anybody on a per game basis that was also the case for Patrick Mahomes, of course in his first NFL, or his first NFL season as a starter that Prescott was the number six overall fantasy quarterback as a rookie. Russell Wilson was a top ten guy even a very low volume situation Cam Newton was top-five Josh island was banged up quite a bit last year. But from weeks, twelve hundred seventy. He was the number one overall fantasy quarterback. So these guys that can run, you know, we, we need to continue to really Bank, this drum because these, these are the guys that gives you a competitive advantage and people continue to overlook because they are they're fixated on how team how quarterback's throw. And eventually, you know, you, you get a guy like Lamar Jackson you did not. A great season throwing last year. But, like we talked about at the top he was the number eight overall fancy quarterback in his starts very, I think he's going to be a better passer as a rookie. Then was Lamar Jackson probably by a significant margin. And I really liked it. And this is another situation where a lot of people are down the cardinals offense. You know, they look at cliff kings breeze. One loss record at Texas Tech that you're that, that just doesn't mean anything to me from a predictive standpoint, especially as it relates to fantasy football. I think that cliff Kingsbury what, what really does matter are with kings breeze offensive, philosophies, and one of those is to get the ball out of his quarterbacks hands quickly, you know, in six years at Texas Tech. Cliff kings breeze rate. Red raiders teams had one offensive lineman drafted in six years. Okay. So they were not working with a lot of talent on the offensive line. That one guy was Lorraine clerk drafted by the colts as not, you know, isn't a starter. And he's like the number seven or eight offense lineman on the colts. That was the only guy they had drafted. So they had to work around that kind of lack of talent, and they got the ball out of their quarterback's hand quickly, and they played really, really fast, the average the most please per game over that six years stretch of any college football team. They eighty two plays per game last year. The cardinals were second the last in the NFL in place per game. So we're going to get an off a spike in often to ball, you from the cardinals we're going to get a different philosophy on how to protect the quarterback and put the quarterback is comfortable situa-. Nations were getting a situation where we're going from San Bradford and Josh Rosen to the least mobile quarterbacks in the NFL to one of the most Gordon guy's gonna be one of the most quarterbacks in the NFL in most mobile quarterbacks in Cuyler Murray. You know, just it's going to be a complete one eighty from what we saw last year. And I think that this offense has a chance to take the league by storm. I love Christian Kirk in this situation. And we can we can talk about him next. Well, let's get to that. Because you thought he'd clip Kingsbury, what do you think that, that means for their skill guys? Yeah. So I think this is the year that we see Larry FitzGerald, take a step back and I know people have saying have been saying that for a long time, we haven't been saying that, you know, we, we've been haunt, Larry, Gerald, but I think that we see him take a step back this year and not play as much slot as he has in the past, and you go back and look at cliff teams Bruce offenses at Texas Tech to keep grant peaky, t Bradley Marquez Jonathan Giles, all smaller guys, usually guys who dominated in the slot. You put the big dudes outside in twenty Wesley doing Cantrell. These guys played more outside Christian Kirk at five ten to a one looks like the perfect slot receiver and he played a bunch of slot receiver in college at tech to saying them. And I think he is Sabella is going to be the favourite for the other slot. See her job because this is gonna be a four wide offers. And, you know, I think that the, the cardinals are gonna break the NFL record for, for most four wide formations that has not been a very common formation in the NFL, I'm actually editing warned charts book right now. And that's one of the least used formation they'll use like five receivers before they use four receivers in the NFL. But I, I think we're gonna see a lot of four receiver formation two. Guys in the slot. Krista crooked. India's Abell are envy, those guys and then on the outside Larry FitzGerald. We're gonna see him on the outside more. And then that fourth receiver job is going to be up for grabs between, like Hakeem Butler, Chad Williams, Kevin white, maybe Keyshawn Johnson. They drafted in the six round. And Christopher Kirk was really good in the slot. Lack. Year he caught fifteen of his twenty slot targets for one hundred ninety six yards and a touchdown. He averaged one point nine yards per slop-out. Run literature was only at one point three six yards per slot. Route run. I think we see Christian Kirk is a breakout player this year, and he takes the reins in the cardinals passing attack under cliff Kingsbury, with collar Murray, slinging it. What was that mean especially the four wide receiver set for David Johnson the backfield? I think you can help them because you know last year, the cardinals used a lot of enclosed bunch formations. And you know invited eight defenders into the box they ran behind center at highest rate in the NFL. And I think David Johnson, you'll even going back to watching college tape at northern Iowa. This guy has always been not the greatest interior runner, but a dynamic guy when you get him on the edges when you get him involved in the passing game, I think he could be a factor in the slot, especially the India Sabella, you know, doesn't come along and earn a huge role right away. I think we could see David Johnson lining up in the slot. He was a highly effective slot receiver. When utilized there by Bruce Arians earlier in his career. I think David Johnson. You know, a lotta people. So this is what happens a lot. You talked about you kind of alluded to earlier happens a lot. Guy won't kind of people will feel like they get burned by a guy. They'll say, never again, you know and they won't look at his rebound potential. This happened with Todd Gurley. A couple years ago hit a terrible year. And people just said, never again. And you could get him in the third round every time and I had my skepticism on tiger early, you know, before that two thousand seventeen monster season, but there was no way, I was passing him up in the third round and I wound up getting a ton of them like an NFL turns. And, you know, all kinds of different drafts and I had a really, really good fantasy season that year just kind of using logic there. You know. And, and trying to chase the ball and David Johnson's volume is not right in areas Ota, chase Edmunds I think is one of the better hand Trump's in the league, but he's not he's not a guy that's really gonna threat truly threaten the, the Carey's production of David Johnson. David Johnson despite being you know, kind of scene. Has a bus last year. He was the number nine overall fantasy running back in PR. Who's the number ten overall running back in non PR wasn't really winning you weeks but wasn't hurting you as much as was perceived. He's still score. Ten touchdowns and averaged nineteen point three touches per game. The cardinals offense. The line is not perfect, you know, it's still, it's still a work in progress, but they did add JR sneezing. He's been a good run blocker historically, and they got Marcus Gilbert via trade when Marcus Gilbert has healthy. He's been a great right tackle, and I think that we are going to see this offense be spread out, and get David Johnson in more space. I went back and looked at the backfield historically for cliff Kingsbury because everyone perceives him as a guy who just you know never gives the ball to the running backs. And all he does is throw the ball to the receivers not the case. He was actually. Very good about adjusting his offense to account for the talent that he had in his first season. Jason morrow. If you remember him got drafted in the second round he had a monster season at tight end and then we've never had another good tight end. And no tight ends ever got any production. You know in in two thousand fourteen or two thousand fifteen he had the Andre Washington who went on to be drafted by the raiders, the under Washington, had to really big years under cliff Kingsbury. You know, this is an NFL player, they didn't have many, many NFL players at Texas Tech when they did have they feature they feature them beyond your washing your two hundred thirty three carries for fifteen hundred yards in fourteen rushing touchdowns in two thousand fifteen the average quarter forty four two yards per game. So I think that's going to be the template for David Johnson's usage. And I, I have David Johnson. Bouncing back with ease as the number five overall running back in two thousand nineteen. All right. So let's finish up with, like a, a late round guy if there's a late round guy that you like the people should be thinking about getting in their head now. Who is it? Yeah. Our gender Madison of the Vikings. And you know, I, I didn't like this pick like I didn't like him as a real life draft pick. I thought he was taking a little bit too early for a big back and runs almost four seven and I would've loved to seen Viking sake of team Butler at that at that late third round position. I think this was picked, like number ninety seven and you know, keen Butler is kind of everything that you would would've wanted like Likud on Treadwell to be. And I think really would have helped Vikings. They're eleven personnel package, but they took Alexander Madison. And you talk about the situation that he walks in two thousand cook has missed seventeen of thirty two games over the last two seasons since entering the NFL he's had a slew of injuries. It hasn't been just the ACO. He was injured a lot at Florida state. That's one of the reasons that he was not. A first round pick when he came out in the draft. So this is not you know this is not a situation where it's like oh, it's just a lot of dumb luck. I mean I it's been kind of a trend for Delvin cook Dalma cooks, a little bit smaller, and Alexander Madison is big waiting to twenty one before the draft. I think he can be a standalone. A guy who offer standalone value. I think you could get him at like eleven to thirteen touches per game right off the bat. His team wants to run under Gary to be hacking Kevin's defense. They started to run a lot more down the stretch understa fancy. And then you don't add Gary to be AC in the offseason without, you know using everything you know using up his running game. I mean that's why you hear you why you hire Gary QB actors to use his running game. They consider, I'll exander Madison to be a great fit for that, like one cut zone outside zone. On scheme and. And then if cooked goes down as he has so often, you have the lead back on a team that wants to be run. I that is going to play good defense that, hey, can't get worse in terms of their offensive line play. I love that gear bradberry, pick, by the way. But I think you have a, a decent floor pick Alexander Madison with pretty good upside. And you can get him pretty much every time in the thirteenth fourteenth fifteenth round, one of my favorite, quote unquote number two backs to draft in fantasy this year.

"Oh, God. Are you saying that I can't be a backup singer? Oh I have a question. Mattamy. I have an answer for you. Yes sir, who is it that sings the introduction song to those to the podcast international recording superstar Eric Hutchinson. Let's keep it that way. Ask How the way that's like the Dad Jokes of dad jokes like that's old like. Who thinks that? Let's keep it that way or like why don't you let him? Like it's it's like I played along with it because I'm a team player soup I know where he was going with it but it is like it's like I'm the dad on the show you know as far as we. Take over. Right I'm the one that knows I have kids but I'm saying like that was the debt you're you're lured of the dad jokes. I have a corner and I stick in it, and that's my answer I mean, right You're not wrong. Thank you very much. Reminder that the fantasy focus football podcast is presented by GEICO. It is Friday. It's a week to preview show and we have no time to spare. So let's get right into it. We have a whole bunch of injury updates and I'm going to go to your who is over in whatever we're calling her room. That's not the palatial estate but it's at least on campus, which is good news and survivor. We've got all kinds of names and the latest update on Michael Thomas gives me just like a teeny tiny speck of hope. I don't know why because the updates you're hearing that are super positive based on a player feeling good who's not doing anything and I would just point out. We talked about some of the stats guys trying to come back early from high ankle sprains and they struggle and I tweeted this the other day the guys can feel really good walking around. But then when they go and try and plant and pivot, and that's when they find out that the ankle is just not going to. Cooperate. Now, I'm GonNa go with Mike Triplet whose is dialed in anyone with the saints, and if you look at the wording of his reporting, the saints expected him to Miss Michael. Thomas, that is they expect him to miss Monday night Michael. Thomas however feels differently and like a shot to play. So of course, they're not declaring anything officially but I think it's noteworthy that Mike Triplet also reported that the Saints Disgust Placing Thomas on I R, but he was opposed because he thinks he can. Come back more quickly. So this is not a two or three day injury. If they were having a discussion point about injured reserve, I would expect at this point that he's not GonNa play Monday night and if he does I'm GONNA say he'll be limited type injury got you're very busy in the shows to find out we're going to get back to you in just a moment matthew their strategy you're not playing Michael Thomas just stop it okay good. That was that's exactly the Kinda. Sinks. Clarity that people need I. think the answer interest made the decision. We made four before Sunday at one PM White, much more updated Intel beyond what's defined you already sort of pointing towards. But I think generally speaking you're airing against playing here. Here's exactly what's going to happen. I'm just GonNa save everyone the trouble. Okay. Because to find his absolutely right Kristie Mike Triplett who has done a great job covering the saints for us for a number of years we love Mike here on the show. Here's what's going to happen. Michael. Thomas can tell reporters that he thinks gray maybe he'll tweet something something like that Sean Payton will say like we're GonNa see we'd love to have out there. He doesn't need to practice to to plan the game game, and then what's going to happen is Sunday morning about twelve thirty in the morning maybe one am. Schefter is going to tweet Michael Thomas who's listed as questionable on the practice report is not expected to play on Monday night football. That's what's going to happen interested in what's going to happen. I've that is my prediction I. Know I have no inside information. I'm just reading the tea leaves here and I'm telling you right now I believe that's what's going to happen. I don't think it will happen at twelve thirty on Sunday morning from chef all the. News that tweet dump you know I know but that's for the Sunday Games I. Think it'll be a little bit later, Michael Thomas. But I do think the decision will be made for us to fire. Let's move forward Aj. Brown. Because this is another one where shefty was on the ball yesterday with some new Info what do we know about him and his? Knee issue this is significant to me that AJ Brown missed practice with a bone bruise and I feel like I make this reminder every year you hear you think of that's not really a big deal but let me remind you that bleeding and so you're talking about bleeding within the bone and everyone wants to be careful with this so that it doesn't turn into. A fracture, a true fracture, and so if you look at Schefters tweet, it said jeopardizing his availability for Sunday and beyond this is typically a multi week issue. I was certainly planning on not having Aj Brown this week. If I'm not mistaken Corey Davis also a little bit banged ups to do you know anything about that or my just making stuff up now I think soft tissue injury had been the concern with him but I don't get the feeling that he's in jeopardy for. This week. Okay. So that's good news on Corey Davis not such great news on AJ Brown. Matthew. So let us assume that AJ Brown sits out niver moved him from my ranks Mike. Claes. Removed him from his projections how High Corey Davis climb presuming that he plays in a match up that I think is good I mean I know that they got great the Jaguars great play from their first round pick in week one Jay Henderson but not a defense that necessarily scares me. No. Not a defense that that scares you. So listen I think he I think he moves up into the he's a wide receiver three with upside and I know we use that phrase a lot. But I do I do believe that to actually be the case I- Derrick Henry as number two running back over all this week and I thought for long and hard about putting him at one over. Christian, McCaffrey because. Again McCaffrey has struggled against Tampa Bay the one bad game had last year was against the buccaneers and so ultimately I went to with CNC. But I think this is a massive Derrick Henry game. You'll see a little Johnny Smith here. You'll. Obviously you're encouraged by what Corey Davis did last week, and then you know that Gif where there's a guy rising out of the out of the coffin, it'll be the undertaker. Yeah. Right right. On wrestling guy all right the entertainment. Gift. All right. The undertaker. That's fine. Yeah, I'm. Jim You know that Guy Matthew. That's Radi savage. WanNa know or whatever. You're the wrestling guy in the show I make no bones about it but my point is that's Adam Humphreys. Like does like Remember. I'm still here guys anyway I. I wouldn't be I don't think horry Davis is suddenly a must start but certainly his prospects higher here. Again I think he's probably in that thirtyish wide receiver range, thirtyish wide receiver rain the buccaneers now dealing with two wide receiver injuries to find Mike Evans played in week one but still a little bit banged up and then Chris Godwin who we discussed yesterday. Entered Concussion Protocol and Chris, Godwin's still not practicing field. I. Think you know as we always say with concussion related issues you have to check day by day status just because a player goes into the protocol doesn't mean he's necessarily been diagnosed with a concussion but they're taking all precautions. So we take it day by day but certainly him missing Wednesday and Thursday doesn't. Look good as for my evans feeling much better practicing on a limited basis so far this week I wanNA point out I. Think we talked about this on Sunday on fantasy football now that sometimes when a receiver is deployed, who has a hamstring injury, the team will strategically limit the routes that they run and how they utilize them and Bruce Arians essentially acknowledged that. this week and confirmed that they were careful with how they deployed him. Maybe wish they had deployed him a little bit more but I think it was smart because now he feels better this week and I think you'll get a good dose of Mike Evans in in Sunday's just a reminder that yesterday we discussed on the podcast you weren't listening you downloaded download. Appreciate that. It will not be Scotty Miller moving into the slot most likely if Chris Godwin sits, it'll actually be just watts and taking on some of the snaps but Sky Miller seems like the buccaneers wide receiver that's not normally in your lineups that you should make room for on Sunday on a percents cutting Miller had a great game. Last week I think I want to say off the top of my head on seventy six yards seventy three, seventy three. Okay. So like and I want to say. Seven targets like six or seven seven targets or five receptions on six Stargazers Yup by reception six, target seventy, three we had, and he had he had a rush they gave him gave an end around rush for six yards. So a six total talk touches for Scotty. Miller, they really like them, and if you go back and look at my preseason, ten lists of ten talked about the fact that I was one of the one of the preseason buzz items that I was buying was the connection between Tom Brady and Scotty Miller. Yes. There are three wide sets it's going to be Watson, and in the slot and you've got Evans and Scotty Miller on the outside here I think Tom Brady has a massive monster game here against the Carolina Panthers it's a bad defense. He doesn't like how week when went and so I think you see a massive amount of points scored here and give me all the Mike Evans and yes, love Scotty Miller this week who still out. There at about eighty percent of ESPN leagues they have a real connection there, and now there's going to be a lot of targets available unfortunately if Chris Godwin sits as defined, you often notes concussions or a non linear injury they can get better than they can get worse. So this is a something we will monitor throughout game, but I'll say this even of Chris, Godwin is active on Sunday Gimme Scotty Miller as a know as A. Play or as a deeper league play. Stefan you big deep breath because we've got a ton of wide receivers for you and I'm just going to have you rip through wide receivers that as of this podcast are listed as questionable are expected to be listed questionable for Sunday's games starting with Julio Jones. John's off appears on the injury report rarely ever Mrs Game listed with a question with a hamstring. But I expect that you'll see him go through more today and play Kenny Golladay. Still, not practicing so far this week. Sorry. Daniel. But I think kinesiology is going to miss another week Cortlandt. Sutton to me is really interesting. Got Some observations from practice yesterday that when he was catching passes towards his left shoulder, the uninjured one he could catch with both hands when he was catching passes thrown towards his right shoulder the. One. He injured a week ago. He was catching one handed and that was not with the right one not lifting his arm overhead yet. So I get the sense that they're feeling more optimistic about his ability to play this week but the notion that he would be at one hundred percent I think is off the mark Devante Parker in practice. But if you listen to what Brian Flores has been saying, he's not doing much in the hamstring is still bothering him. So I think Friday's big day stay tuned for that. Amari Cooper I'm not as worried about him. You know he's been dealing with a couple of soft tissue injuries since preseason I don't think it's going to be something that cost him time at least not yet. Jamison crowder interestingly practiced Wednesday didn't practice on Thursday hamstring issue for him as well. So stay tuned and then Brandon Cooks gametime decision last week definitely still hampered by the quad again he he's one to monitor for the next couple of days hands to find you the jet. You cannot seem to catch a break with wide receiver injury focused and. Know. Someone's stealing their dad cornerback. All right. Let's again all those injuries will be updated on fantasy football. Now, Sunday morning at ten am eastern times to find out. There are also some notable injuries at other positions led by George. Kill, and You have been clear throughout this week George cadle not practicing does not preclude him from sitting on from playing on Sunday. San Speaking with reporters was very clear about that. I do like this Shannon is pretty straightforward when it comes to injury issues and not afraid to talk about them and he said Look George Kills Guy who's showing you how Tuffy is because he plays through things but we noticed there a drop off he played in the second half after injuring his knee last week. But really didn't do much in terms of fantasy production You're going to be a little bit of a roll the dice, but I expect him to be out there. This is a guy who will. Push so hard to play through and it will come down to Sunday if it has to. But I don't necessarily expect him to do anything on Friday. It's just a walk through today. So even if you see him out there, he's not really truly going to test it. All right couple running backs there are if George kits by the way on Sunday and it sounds unlikely he will There are reasonable number of tight ends to go grab the waiver wire including someone like Dowse Goddard still available in a good chunk of leaks but let's talk about James. Connor. And Philip Lindsey to wrap up the injury report for week two James Connor back to full participation practice. So I think remember earlier in the week I said, I thought maybe it was a business decision to hold him out for the rest of the game I think full participation practice suggests as much and I do think that he will play Philip Lindsey with turf toe they're calling him week to week hasn't practice yet not looking good for him this week. All Right Matthew I think the James Connor injury does bear a little bit of discussion quickly here. If he plays like how do you play any Pittsburgh steelers running back you don't. Have a choice depending on how your team you know how deep your league is but assuming you're ten team League or a twelve team league you don't. I mean look. Let's assume James Caan react right and so full participant practice yesterday is to find you mentioned. Okay. So. Like. First off, he was the worst running back like just when he was active Benny style better played better right. But then like connor is going to be active, I don't know that you love them. You don't you're not scared of the match up against the broncos, but it's not like one where you're like, Oh, you gotta get somebody into your lineup like it's a middle of the road matchup bordering on bad and so. My feeling here is that like you just don't know, will he be able to hold up throughout the whole game? Will he get replaced by Bennie now we'll go the hot hand approach here, but you also can't feel good about any snow because James Connors can be out there and it just it is an absolute disaster for fantasy managers decision making you'd be better off if James, Connor were declared in this game, but it doesn't look like that's what's going to happen and so before me again, we try to narrow whatever. Variables there aren fantasy football because there are so many to me. There's so much. So many different ways that it could go with the Pittsburgh running back like I would not feel confident in starting any them. Until we get some sense of clarity in that backfield and I think we'll have none going into Sunday a fairly fun Thursday night football game last night between the bengals and the browns the browns come out with thirty five, thirty window Joe. Borough did have I don't know about historic night in some ways though MIU thirty seven completions most ever by rookie in a single game accord of the allies sports previous what sixty one attempts matthew their blitz A quick hitting rapid fire three takeaways from last night's game that you think are more important understanding that we are going to die in all of these players throughout next week, we'll be the three most important things you saw are learned last night. Row, quickly I would say with the quarterbacks like great to see Baker. Look good. Baker. Is Accurate. Bake all the issues that Baker had in week one. Against the Ravens he fixed and was accurate. He made a good decision making a great throws got Beckham going and so I don't know that you're not really starting Baker Mayfield but to the extent that you were worried about Baker as it relates to Odell Beckham junior or Jarvis Landry I think those concerns are now alleviated so great and then you know listen it's it's one week but it was it was to see it was very good to see you very happy especially by the way if you have Beckham. And then on the other side like Joe Borough is going to be very good and very soon like he's not there yet but he's going to be really really good in this league for a long long time there were you know you you? There was some things last night we're like Oh. Okay. Yeah. I. So I'm like somebody who has Joe Borough in a dynasty league I was very happy last night without performance looking through over sixty times. But for me the other two takeaways here where I think the browns running backs. Nick Job and Kareem Hunt. Ilk the fact that cream hunt got the two touchdowns great. Right. But he was basically Nick Chubb doubled his touches and in. So that's a concern and so in a lot of hunts yardage came on basically the final drive when like the bengals basically gassed and so. I was happy to see that they. They stuck with hunt down at the at the goal line but I'm sorry it's like with Chubb No, no, no, no no at the very, very, very very into the game like he got stopped and then they they could have brought in for third touchdown but they gave the second one to hunt. So that was great to see. But as somebody who has a lot of hunt this year but. Yeah. I mean. This is it looks like in Games in which their games in which they're winning it's going to be the trump show in games in which they're down it's going to be the Kareem Hunt Show. So I think a last night sort of reset a little bit to back to sort of what we expect in the preseason was that trump's the one hunt is the to, but still both guys can be productive fantasy wise in this. In this offense here, and then the last thing for me is that I think everyone should sell Aj Green. If you're in my league, everyone else should try to buy low like a guy got thirteen targets. Get it. It was a bad. I get it. I get it. It was a bad fantasy game. Green are you really m? Yeah. I to me. Let me lay out why I'm not. Can you tell me why you are We think AJ green talented right We do I, mean had that's what I'm not gonNA members. Okay. Maybe I think AJ green is still talented K.. I think remember he had prior to this year he hadn't played football over six hundred days or something like that. So there's a little bit rusty but I still think AJ green is talented. I think Joe Borough is talented. I think the usage is there again, he got thirteen targets last night they weren't. They didn't have a lot of practice time in the preseason together that will come together but he's going to continue to get you know double digit targets which I think he will listen. Joe. Is Not GonNa be throwing sixty times a game I, get it but. For me, I think AJ Greens values at its all time lowest I'm buying rather than trying to bail. I'm just a little bit nervous. I'm a little bit nervous, but sometimes the descent from stardom to. Average or not stardom is wrapping it just happens and I'm just not just the first two weeks. I have not seen any particular explosiveness from Aj Green that I'm used to. You are hundred percent fair in assuming that there is some rust that still needs to be knocked off and the good news is that like base up where he was drafted, you're not counting on AJ Green. Weekly tape unless you're in a sixteen team like us in the War Room League, point in the ten team league probably. Goes. A bench consideration reflects consideration for UC might be okay. I'm just a little bit nervous following this story closely as we get into future weeks through two games twenty two targets love that part. I love that part I also consistently struggled to get off man coverage last night we're gonNA. Come back and discuss a bunch of stories but does awards good player sure an. I'm just saying. Three cash thirteen targets I don't care for me to buy Durrell. Rivas it's still problem it. Last night was not good but in some of that was on borough to by the way I mean, not all those balls were catchable. I just stayed at all I'm saying I'm a little bit nervous, which is acceptable after a guy has ten of his passes thrown deny will allow. Nervousness but don't don't put him in the coffin with the undertaker just yet. Oh well, the good news is if you put him in the coffin that he came back return. At home learning comedy? That's what's called a callback. We're GONNA discuss a bunch of backfield that are very crowded there just a second but first. Daniel. You tell us a little bit something about something.

A bunch of Backfield's I mentioned that are still crowded after last week or maybe got more confusing. Let's start in. Detroit and Daniel Sorry. But what happened last week? Okay. We have a two backs ranked this week. That's the good news. We've. We've narrowed this down from three running backs to to Matthew, and yet we have a coin flip between the Andrea Swift Adrian Peterson with believe it or not Adrian Peterson taking the slightest of edges over de'andre swift playing Adrian Peterson over the Andrea Swift. Yeah I mean it's a tough one. Right who do you think is more likely to fall into the end zone Adrian Peterson. Like who's more likely to catch a touchdown pass Adrian Peterson is that a catches? How I'm not saying how likely? Due to you absolutely nothing absolutely nothing here but Daniel. DOPP. How long do you have I have no pro. I apologized. Entirely about that's entirely about Daniel Dobbs pain that is not meant to rub salt in your wounds. The Andrea Swift. But that's entirely about secret squirrel there. But Yeah I mean look is full eighty or would you prefer not playing them? Yes. Okay. That's where I'm at honestly. I think the packers will play well here and I think that the packers are traditionally in secret school you can speak to this feels like the packers always kill the lions. There's always it's always use a high scoring game. The packers always seem to have Detroit's number here. And I did not get enough clarity on this backfield last week to feel confident in starting any of these guys, we don't want any part of Kerryon Johnson. And Johnson is going to be on the field touch the ball at least some. Yeah. The biggest thing that I feel that carry should absolutely not be lineups, and if you did have to choose between a lines running back though it would be the Andrea Swift or or Adrian Peterson my hope is that. They want to get de'andre swift involved as a rookie second game put all that behind you. Let's give him a workload and see if maybe we can get this rookie back on track i. just feel like I don't know I could see that happening this week. That's why I have swift just two spots higher than ap but we're all right. They're back to back with. And if I have to choose the reason I have a higher again I'm I mean in terms of the data we have to go off of, which is literally one week Adrian. Peterson, touched about seventeen times the Andrea Swift. Six and so and by the way Adrian Peterson was good. Adrian Peterson was of lying he three rushing yards heavy shows up in just rolled out of bed and get. On a power play. been the game is in limbo, right? I. Mean Not that worried about the lambo crowd or anything like that. But just do feel like you know on the ground in limbo I think they're going to want to try to. Part of the part in the phrasing here but actually established the run. All right. If I were alliance player scored a touchdown on Sunday I would one hundred percent of the lamb believe that would be an excellent job on Sunday. Right? What would we great as you have to run around to find guy there like going there. Lambeau is going to have nothing they thousand fans nothing just go and just just jump into the section of seats. Let's go to Jacksonville Tennessee. Technically, we're Jacksonville is going to be playing on Sunday fader play, and if you're playing who is it and how much confidence do you have in that running back? If I'm playing anyone it's James Robinson. And my confidence is like as as flex play. Look, he's the guy that got all the running back. Touches other running back carries for the Jaguars here. It's not a great match up here. He got I believe seventeen of twenty running back touches correct for the JAGS. But. Tennessee is a good defense and is a good defense here a totally arm and it feels like this is one of the reasons why I was so high on Menchu in the in the preseason right was that I talked with a lot. What does Jay Gruden like to do? He likes to throw what is Ben mcadoo The quarterbacks coach of the Jaguars to likes to throw like they're gonNA throw and throw much last week they didn't need to. Because he didn't Miss Right he didn't want and colletion correct. Yeah. You just just twenty total passing place. I'm with you and I have them ranked just about where you do I. Think in a perfect world I might actually be fading this. Backfield. To, and here's the reason why is that like they won? So we look through our teal colored glasses right now and sixteen for sixty two looks, hey, they won no more Trevor Lawrence tank job, right but like if they had lost that game and he gets sixteen for Sixty two, you're kinda like Oh basically no passing game usage they're going to struggle to score points this year. The titans are really good defense if I had my druthers will be fading here how About backfield in buffalo because this one, I. Think has two players that people are considering playing Matthew Endeavoured Single Terry and also Zach Moss what'd you learn from this backfield last week and how much confidence do you have because whereas I have Devon Single Terry. Ranked ahead of Zach Moss. You have it reversed. Do you believe in what you saw in week one from Zach boss was enough to believe he should be better running back going forward I do and more importantly here in this particular game I, Think Zach Moscow's touchdown. Okay. The saying that right now I'm active discussions Moss I like against the Miami Dolphins. which is a defensive struggle they gave up a couple of rushing scores, opposite cam last week I. think that listen I've Josh Allen is a top three play this week. But beyond that I'm sorry as a top four play I've Allen at four but I think Zach Moskowitz in the end zone. So that's why I get caught I'm just telling you. Touchdown against the Miami Dolphins they've allowed the third most running back rushing yards since the start of twenty nineteen. and honestly like I think it's a matter of win. Not If Zach Moss takes over this Backfield, make no mistake Devon Single Terry's always gonNA be involved. They like Devon. Single. Terry there. I think he's a talented running back. Moss's better into the fact that they were basically a fifty fifty split in week. One I know I. Know Single Terry had more snap edge but in terms of like production feels like it was basically fifty fifty and so I think for our purposes here in fantasy football land I think because of the touchdown equity that Zach Moss is likely to get the season I. Think you're GonNa want at the End of the year you're going to want to have had moss over single terry this year, and I certainly think this week because I'm calling Zach mosques in Banja a like the call. Let's go to Chicago they played the giants on Sunday in Chicago David Montgomery of course played last week did not show any signs of that groin issue that he suffered during the middle of training camp he is twenty. Twenty two twenty one day. So we all sort of feel the same way low end rb to potentially a high end flex consideration three Cohen lower tier flex play. Don't know that we necessarily saw a lot from this backfield last week Matthew that either encouraged me or discouraged me kind of went about expected Manca. The encouraging part here was that Montgomery who came into that game banged up didn't look hurt I. Agree on that. You know what I mean. So it looks okay that's David Montgomery. was effective nobody hasn't been effective as entire NFL career. So it's like all right fine but he is going to get a lot of work at home in a really good match against giants team that was run over all day by Bennie Snell the week before and so Montgomery here who also got three tar got three targets compared with just two to three Cohen the week before yeah I mean I like I have twenty like. Sort of have to hold your nose and click submit but I do think David Montgomery gets enough volume here in a good match up to be rb two viable runner of air recently made comments by might take all the way into twenty twenty one for this Washington offense to kind of find its way to how they envision it being. At Best Unbeliev when you think about sixteen in Washington team that's still finding its offense. Unbelievable. Place Washington. Thank you very much. Yeah. Put some respect on that name and the first place undefeated Washington Professional Football Team I think part of that evolution is going to eventually be fading away from. Patan barbeque. Play a ton last week. It was very inefficient. He scored twice I believe seven yards per carry doesn't excite you wine on I. Mean who doesn't love one point seven yards per carry happy and said Matthew for now I think that workload probably enough to depress the value Antonio Gibson a little bit Gibson's exciting as we know but there wasn't a ton of passing game volume so I still have Gibson ranked highest but maybe I need to lower my expectation. This might be a feedback backfield. It's well I. Think one hundred percent I mean. Look Peyton film of the end zone twice but I think if you watch that game what should discourage you is the lack of Antonio Gibson usage. It is truly a committee here and make no mistake in terms of just pure NFL talent Antonio Gibson is significantly more talented as more upside both real life and fantasy wise than jd mckissick. Barber that's indisputable. But I know for a fact, what they want is a multi headed approach at least for now in that backfield. So paint Barbara's going to continue to get work I believe got seventeen carries in this game twenty, nine yards one yard. I mean, it was brutal. My point is he wasn't getting anywhere and they still gave him seventeen carries he did nothing and they still gave him seventeen carries and you've got jd mckissick there as well, and you've got Gibson I just it'll get there at some point but not this week I, think the match up with Arizona is tougher than maybe people think and defensively and so yeah, I think it's a three headed monster on on offense it's not going to score a lot of points. For me I I agree with you I think this entire backfield ideally is a fade. So we often ask this question about a star player in a bad match up how much are you lowering expectations for that player and to me it only matters when you're moving that player out of your lineup bright like, Hey, I'm lorrimore expectations for Christian McCaffrey. Against the bucks, we because the box played him pretty well, last year. Yeah. He's still like the pillar optimistic about an entire roster. So I want to be careful in how we asked this question about the Shawn Watson are you lowering expectations against the Baltimore even to the point that you are pulling him from your lineup and tell me it depends like. Obviously. It depends. But how little confidence you have and who is if if there is a quarterback that you think might be available or could have been your second quarterback I'm not pulling them from my. There you go. We're lowering starting. Expectations at eleven. Eleven. I'm I'm but I'm starting to Shawn Watson similar to what we're talking about with like Kyla Murray. Last week or whatever like obviously, Kyla Murray was awesome last week against the forty niners. But the example still holds I am not going to drop a valuable piece of my lineup to get somebody into my on my roster to get another quarterback so I can sit to Shawn Watson because I think this guy is eight and I've Watson at eleven. Yeah. I. Mean I think he had a terrible week last week scored twenty point eight famous Anki very much he. Also. Like the fear is that, hey, you know you lower you bench him and then he's the Shawn Watson he could have twenty eight points this weekend and no, one would bat an eyelash though whatsoever at. Just, be careful about Arctic thinking with someone of his ilk air rogers have to Shawn Watson on your team. You drafted him fairly early among quarterbacks. He was one of the first six quarterbacks drafted in basically every draft. You're not bailing on a guy that used a reasonably high draft pick on. One. We ended this week into the season your start if you have to. Shawn. Watson you're starting Sam Action. Let that be a message to you don't drop to Shawn Watson is that is that a message is a Cowboy Sam now? Cowboy. Sam Plays in same action. Decided you. WanNa. Drop Shawn Watson because he wanted to keep Tom Brady on his roster didn't know who to drop in order to pick up Dallas Goddard. So he dropped Shawn Watson. In our league wasn't this podcast I don't think he listens to this podcast because I want to be nicest action needs a different nicknames mashing Sam the Moron. All right. That's. GonNa Listen To. Cowboy Salmon. Moron. Say I love for you guys to determine which which SAM is, which, why isn't Aaron? Rodgers inside our consensus top ten this week the match up last week. Obviously, he toasted took advantage of an Daniel I'm sorry I don't WanNa know do a man speaking right into year in two years year it's the lion running catch passes. That's that's one thing. And they were really good down we. Were in the passing game awesome. Vertical presents all add in all. Secondary. All answer the question k. the reason why Aaron Rodgers, not our consensus top ten is because of you guys I have Matan Oh my top ten secret school has. Noted, Packer Hater Secret Squirrel. Market correcting. Does that? I don't know I'm going to go change my ranking though because I don't know how I cannot send my top ten. I gotta go study who have had obviously some really really good quarterback. She get through the Mahomes and they'll Jackson Dax in the cuyler Watson's and the Russell. Wilson and the you know all those I was I was I was you've got drew brees right? I mean you would like your journey your knocked down a peg Matt Ryan same with you. Yeah I mean. I I actually have Ryan ahead of Rogers because I think that Dallas game is a shootout here. But yeah, drew brees without Michael Thomas in a game in which they should win easily guess drew brees actually my hate list this week because I'm outside of my top ten so low expectations here but specifically to Aaron Rodgers and we can have a video here that they clip. Specifically to Aaron Rodgers. First off looked absolutely awesome. Last week You're welcome. America, I put him on my hitlist. He we wished fired him to greatness. We inspired him to greatness the truth matter here and all services with Aaron Rodgers absolutely kills Detroit right his last eight eight full games against the lions twenty four point nine fantasy points per game over eighteen fantasy points in each of those games always kills Detroit. There is nothing about the lion secondary last week that gives you. Any sense of confidence like by the way, all those all those just mentioned most of them were with Darius slay probably all of them I just don't know if he if he missed one or two there but the fact is, is that that secondary has at least for the moment gotten worse and they nothing they did last week inspired any sort of confidence here Aaron Rodgers looked absolutely great looks like he is has a connection now with Markelle this scantly and. More sample size before I'm ready to trust those guys. But as far as it relates to Aaron Rodgers fantasy value especially when you think about what Davante Adams doing yeah Aaron. Rodgers, to me easy top ten play this week. All right. Good stuff there. We'll come back and talk about some week one wide receivers who awesome and whether they belong in your lineup in week two.

It because by the way I went grey prematurely and then so I mean you can sort of see it writing like sort of settled in this kind of like yeah. and. So I'm both gray and balding. Gets really it sucks like on pretty much every level. Yeah. You are a threat to threat quarterback. Listen listen I wife Beth up early. Before she got smart and realized that it was coming down the pike. Wife or up. That was the best decision you made. It really was thousand percent. Life of good decisions that was the best one you have made. All right. Let's get the wide receivers they were awesome and week one and whether you have confidence started them in week two, we begin with area slate and a great game for the giants on Monday nights fight can I ask you do know about? Golden Tate's hamstring anything that you would give that indicates he will play on Sunday. He's been practicing a little bit limited is what we're hearing. So it's still hard to gauge obviously today big day but. Nothing official. Okay. That's good to know because if he was back in full I'd have less competition various slate. Matthew is the Darius slate and starting conversation dependent upon whether or not golden state plays on Sunday. No, I don't think it is okay. I think that is the Darius Layton starting conversation dependent on whether sorta how lucky you feel again We did this stat. Is that I want to say in thirsty call you can correct me if you're from wrong here but it's something like he has I want to say he has eleven then or is it ten, ten, five, ten touchdowns right? He's on those in four games I think he's. Receiving touchdowns, but he has four games with multiple receive one. That stat some close enough to the point of that status regardless of whether I get it right or not sorry I got a lot going on up here. And? The hair to keep it in. All right like goes out. What I would tell you here is that dairy Slayton is big play dependent and when he hits, he hits big. But in terms of a consistent part of that offense I'm not ready to go there yet don't love this matchup on the road at Chicago playing at Chicago and it's obviously it's a different year with cove nineteen but traditionally playing at Chicago has been awful for opposing quarterbacks. I'm not ready to say that I think this giants offense goes in there and lights it up. SLAYTON's really talented and I think they found themselves a real steel wanna see what he's. A fourth round pick fifth round round pick they've found themselves a real steel late in the draft, their love, the player but in terms of consistent fantasy force, I'm not ready to go there yet and I, have to your point I'm wide receiver forty this week I said this during the preseason there really wasn't a player that I had more of a disconnect with than Robbie Anderson meaning that like there was zero buzz whatsoever like I believed in my mind that Robbie Anderson was a good player and could thrive in an offense like he did at times for the jets. We never heard anything about them and that's not a reflection of him or the coverage is just that there was no preseason games there was limited padded practices. All the factors people are aware of hit a monster week, one, twenty five and a half fantasy points, matthew immediate plug, and play starter flex consideration whereas he land for you in this match up against the bucks haven't wide receiver thirty-six buccaneers play pretty good defense they allowed just twenty wide receiver points to opposing wide receivers. You've obviously got DJ more there. You've got some Curtis Samuel as well a lot of his production production. Great. In Week One, but he had one big play and one huge play that is part of Robbie Anderson's game. So that's fine and I am more a Anderson Believer than not I prefer Robbie Anson Curtis Samuel. If you're looking at the non Dj more wide receiver, you're looking for and Carolina. So I am there again reunited with his coach, his college coach I don't think people necessarily real. Matt rule was his coach at temple when when Robbie Anderson Played College Ball. So that's exciting as well. He was one of the first free agent signings they made when Matt rule got to Carolina and I think he fits the kind of offense that they wanNA run they're. Having said that he's also a little bit big-play dependent. Of of the guys we're GonNa talk about he's the the answer to the question is which standout wide receiver from week one are you starting of sort of borderline guys I prefer him to Darius late night performed a watkins or lazard or Jamison crowder any of those guys like I prefer Robbie Anderson to all those. But in terms of do I think he's an automatic no-brainer. Start. I'm not there yet, but I haven't ranked the highest of all. The guys we we're GONNA talk about potential shootout in Sunday are Tampa Bay on Sunday Mike Clay did not yesterday the DJ more draws a difficult wide receiver cornerback matchup art. You mentioned Robbie Anderson, his old teammate Jamison crowder now ah jetzt to find you told us or still I should say to find you told us Earlier. He got hurt during practice on Wednesday missed practice on Thursday Matthew I think is going to be made for you. I don't think he's GonNa play on Sunday that being said, if he does play I actually liked this match up quite a bit i. know the jets were really bad last week on offense and they've been really bad for a while now on offense but the. Forty niners are all sorts of banged up on defense right now, Richard Sherman plays on Ira Kella Witherspoon dealing with concussion. We know about all the interested in offense as well. But deformed missed practice on Thursday or is limited on Thursday with a neck issue. So I actually think that if Jamison crowder plays, he would be a lineup staple for me. I. Based on the target share my. As we as we sit here and Friday morning, my instincts are that he's not going to play as well. But I do think for people I don't know if this came up on CSS. But when we do our secret episode of SPF right. Yes. I'm GonNa Mention Bershad Perriman. Cheap. Option. Again to your point about how banged up that San Francisco Defense is and Chris Earned Brad, Perryman are two interesting kind of cheap guys in. To to note in this particular thing for tournament play and also By the way if you're in a deeper league, you're just looking for somebody there because I don't think crowder plays here. At and for those that maybe are watching, you see that I don't have them ranked. That's because as I said, just a moment ago I don't think he will play as well. A lot of players are added on the waiver wire and week one matthew people want to use them right away can use Malcolm Brown. He was spectacular last week he was rb five this week though he makes the hate list is the bean on the hitlist enough to push them out of your lineup for the Rams on Sunday no I am at twenty three again, it's all about expectations a love hate list is entirely about expectations and I. Think everyone saw the two touchdown game against the cowboys in a Primetime Games. Everyone's watching that game and there was just like Oh Malcolm Brown Malcolm runs the new Todd Gurley gotTa Start Them I have mount side, my top twenty I'm lower on him than you. You May Twenty I'm at twenty three but you know I just think about this eagles front seven, which is really good. Right that will seven few running back points since the start of twenty nine, thousand, nineteen I mean you know again not saying that Malcolm brought his Peyton Barber obviously but I mean Payton bar like in a game in which the Washington football team won. They'll peyton Barbara two under two yards precarious at one point, seven yards per carry I. I think they're going to struggle to run the ball here against Philadelphia Eagles team that by the way is like the sort of got woken up by Washington I. Think they sort thought they were going to win that game. They did their own one. This is desperation time for the eagles they cannot go into because if you fall two games behind the Washington football team, you may never recover from that a few fall two games while. Whatever jokes aside like you do not want it as an NFL team traditionally, you do not want to start to correct now this. Yeah. We have an extra playoff team here. So we can't rely on this DASS as much but you're right the twelve team format. The Stat is very very telling that if you start to it's like a ten percent chance of making the playoffs maybe a better odds this year but still not a place you want to be I don't have I. Don't have a question. Dale is Evan questions survivors of a question. Kyle doesn't have a question, but a very special guest does indeed have a question for us here on the Oso. Hey everybody. My name is Ali, and this is blue and blue has a fantasy football question for you. Minnesota has a tough defense, but we just watched them get torched by the packers which colts player is in line for big day against the Vikings. That was a phenomenal question for those that are listening to the audio here that was. Blue. The Colts Mascot, the tremendous colts mass along with his great for an alley sending along a social question for us here at ESPN. So what I think he's basically saying blue wondering is you know which Colt. Do you WANNA play on Sunday against the Vikings? We might be able to rephrase it says, how much confidence do you have a Nike minds? Matthew Yeah you're obviously starting Jonathan Taylor why was a top ten play this? Week I think, and by the way going to be a top ten play for the rest of the season here. But I think name hines becomes really really interesting here. Think about this last week, the Minnesota Vikings allowed nine different running back receptions in week one nine, and when we think about Philip rivers, you know who loves to throw two running backs here he completed seventeen different passes two running backs in week number one. And hines was the recipient of a lot of them got more red zone usage than I. think a lot of people expected as well and so naive hines who make lowest I'm as a top twenty play I. Think the colts moved the ball significantly against the Vikings. The Vikings Defense did not look ready for prime time against the packers in week number one and I don't think that changes suddenly I think the culture able to move the ball significantly. Again, we talked about this you don't want to start own to the culture desperate here. Colts need to win this game and I think they got a chance to do so. And they'll do it on the on the strength of their two running backs. Yeah. The Vikings by the way also, and once they didn't win in a major way the propensity for Philip rivers throwing running backs we've discussed at length and a great question there by by blue and we'll have a lot more context surrounding the visit from blue to the podcast, and we'll tell the story one time of one. Daniel I with Internet blue at some point a daniels right. Now we're in a Darius Leonard the Maniac Jersey looking sharp right there and that Colt blue nicely gotta tell you. Let's talk about one of his teammates matthew who maybe blue is also asked about Paris, Campbell? He also makes your love list Peres. Campbell, had nine targets last week got six of them. Yeah, I just my expectation here is like I feel like people forget how good Paris Campbell was at Ohio state and they looked at last year where he was lost and the offense you know under Jacoby reset was inconsistent as well. But you mentioned the nine slot targets last week all of the. All other colts got five again, these targets, the slot thing about Aaron Rodgers did to the slot against Minnesota. Week Number One twelve or thirteen hundred and fifty yards two touchdowns wide receivers against the Vikings last week, twenty, two for three, hundred, fifteen yards, four touchdowns. We saw Aaron Rodgers is torture them again that Vikings defense just doesn't look like a vikings. Defense I think that secondary is GonNa Struggle. Pairs Campbell is obviously getting a lot of looks here fully healthy here There's I don't have them this way. You could make the argument to ranked Campbell over T. Y. Hilton. Again, I have not done that I have Hilton still over Campbell but you could make that argument based on what we saw at a week number one I think Peres Campbell is the real deal. He was a preseason sleeper for me was a preseason sleeper for my clay and a lot of others here, and it's nice to see that's what's happening. So yeah, all in on Paris Campbell this. Week, I. Have met Twenty-seven George cadle banged up Evans struggled in week one, gronk struggled in week one a bunch of notable tight ends did not have a great day to begin their season dollars. Gal's got her had an awesome day. He had over one hundred receiving yards and a touchdown for the eagles. He is a star player. He is inside all of our top ten math. You re expecting this to be a weekly thing every week top ten tight end Dallas Gutter because I think we are. Based, on the usage, they absolutely love like with a capital L Love Dallas Guard in Philadelphia. It's easy to see why when you watch the film like he's a he's an insanely talented player here I think this is a nice matchup with the rams who've who have struggled against tight ends and other you know whatever Blake Darwin got hurt in that game there but the middle of the field is not somewhere that I think that's a place where you can attack. Attack the Rams obviously look Jalen Reagan's still working his way back. My expectation here is that. You Know Sean Jackson they'll take some shots there but you know he's also GonNa see some Jalen Ramsey and and so honestly like what is Philadelphia do they wanNA play a lot of two tight end sets you know going to head his but I believe there'd be enough volume in this game for Dallas. Got It to be a top ten tight end I read through a few of the defenses I like for week two please start with a Aaron Carter against your Washington football team on Sunday node the cardinals play pretty well defensively last week I expect them to play pretty well defensively this week against Washington often as we know is not quite there yet might take a full season. Progress about offensive line it is bad offensive line in their schedule coming up is actually really favorable. You might be able to add Arizona who's available in two thirds of leagues and utilize them not just this week. But maybe for the next four weeks starting again, this Sunday against Washington got channel Jones Got Putin Baker you've got Patrick Peterson. You got a bunch of playmakers on that defensive side of the ball that bodes well for Sunday. But the Washington football team also a reasonable streaming option here this week I don't love the idea facing cuyler Murray because the eight sacks that Washington had last week the most ever of Carson Wentz in a single game since he came into the NFL in two thousand and sixteen, not likely to repeat. But the front seven is no joke matthew we always talk about how Projecting defenses is basic. You're throwing darts for the most part, but sacks or one of those things that you can count on consistently from this defense because of how good that front four is one more here that I like the titans hosting Jacksonville Biden's available in about seventy percent of leagues they have play makers on the edge. They've got good pass rushers. They've got a good secondary. Gardening. She was awesome last week but we do think that there are a limited number of players that are going to threaten defense consistently from Jacksonville. I. Don't see the titans giving up forty three points and leaving with a negative nine is sore like the Vikings defense did this past week that caused a couple of matchup boo Hoo Vikings, defense. Yeah tighten up. Apart, Daniel Trivia here's I got we are utterly Trivia. Special things coming up in the show. Are. Kyle half or? You want to jump in and do this Geico Trivia question of the day we ain't got you got you covered we got the lions, the terrible lions against my packers this weekly since two thousand fourteen only wants is a Detroit running back on over seventy rushing yards against the packers I want you to name for me who was only ones at the beginning of two thousand fourteen a Detroit lions running back on over seventy rushing yards against back yards. Yup. I would imagine that I'm going to get this answer in core wrecked. Confidence you need. Kyle's microphone is on like a string through a tin candidates sound like it's correct. Yeah. A walkie-talkie. Alright. So finding you got an answer. No. No. No No. I was thinking it because it keeps your winning percentage I go I go way way back machine seafield field when you have a longer frame of reference. Yes. Is your little bit older. So I tend to go way back and I was told the other day that that that Matt. Is Not a recent running back in W deputy remember. that. So story I'M GONNA get. Time left in the GonNa Guess I I will go with joy belts probably wrong. But he's the pride of Wayne State in Michigan I like to Bell Yeah Fair Enough I'm sure. I. Got Wine Wrong. But I know that Reggie Bush was the other. Keep. That, out there why not I was GonNa go with Michaela shore he was out before twelve. Daniel. I was GONNA say Kevin Jones but I don't think it was i. think he was well. Yep Hundred fifty percent hustle fifty percent talent nothing wrong with that and I'm trying to be Rude Zach Center is the answer to this guy. had her doctors accent from not mistaken now cooed one there. Do we have time for this now for those that are watching on the live stream right now I promise you will not be disappointed. We talked about our great friend blue, the incomparable blue the cult mascot here is a rule sizzle reel from the best of blue. And for Blues Final Question, if you had the first pick in the NFL mascot draft, who would you select? And before you decided checkout blues resume. Do was freezing. That was awesome. If you're watching this lie by the way at fantasy focus on twitter, you can find blues. sizzle. Like so a lot of the feats that you saw him that. would be impossible to do generally right like I couldn't do most of them what he's doing them in a costume he's like a massive costume. So that's the question who is your favorite mascot in the NFL? It's gotta be blue. Now. Blue Blue I feel like so supplying, would you agree to? Just make one edit to that tape and that would be no pie in the face of a forty niner fan other than that. It was perfect. who used to it's to find is that the problem why call it team doesn't even make the real the Gauntlett has been laid down has like it's a it's a call to action now to all other NFL mascot if you're out there listening right now. Ascott his matthew. You have one right now we don't have a team name. Let's go to national. authored. By that team name we have sourdot Sam Sourdot Sam Ooh does empty. If. So pass it on along. That was outstanding. We'll again. Sam Is he in any way related to Moron Sam or cowboys say. That's a great question. So, we'll tell the story of blue at some point. The incredible dinner we had with him he has a great inspiration and seriously an incredibly talented individual as well. Really quickly, Matthew of a couple of minutes here. Let's get through a couple of love hate a quarterback to make sure love list plays on Sunday night it's as Boogie Yeah Cam Newton I mean again the two rushing touchdown since last year since he Last week right. Since he entered the NFL obviously leads all players in gold. Go rushing touchdown Seattle fifth-worst goal to go defense. Since the start of last season, they lead the Falcons to convert twice in gold go situations in week number one me some Cam Newton I think he's completely jet I. Have Midst Cube Eight this week not use Schuster but a separate sealer wide receiver the make sure loveless Yanti Johnson was targeted on a thirty three point three percent of his routes in week number one obviously didn't totally connect there. But I like this matchup here Aj boy is now on I. R. FOR THE DENVER broncos. So it's a bang-up secondary here and so Deontay, Johnson I know Judas the name obviously but Deontay Johnson is somebody that Ben has talked up in the preseason. I've talked with the priest and a Lotta people have talked up in the preseason I think this is the week you find out why all right to players make the hitlist both the AFC's not both from the AFC west breeze plays in the NFC south. Look, I don't think Michael Thomas Place here, and by the way Michael Thomas Account for over thirty percent of drew brees is fantasy points last season. Okay and then you think about the fact that. They're almost a touchdown favorite over the raiders I. Don't think they're gonNA need to throw a ton I. think their defense is so good that the that the raiders who struggle to move the ball. So then I got to throw a I. Think you see a lot of Latavius Marine obviously Alvin Kamara you'll see some sanders and stuff but I just don't think drew brees has to have a massive game here to to beat the raiders. I. Think they go more conservative I'm outside my top ten for the Week, which is rare for me on drew brees, which is why he makes the hate list, which is all about expectations Melvin Gordon to say it for you quickly makes the list against the steelers i. saw them play and Saquon Barkley last week, saquon Barkley had minus three yards. Before conduct we gotta go. We have a show on Sunday fantasy football now tainted eastern time on ESPN Two I am at Matthew Berry Tim aren't all forms of social media except the fantasy life that merely at Matthew Berry your outfield. Grandma twitter's to find his hats to you. UNDERSCORE ESPN on twitter. He's at Daniel follows all out tomorrow or Sunday.

NFL Draft Marathon: Fantasy QB's and WR's with Ryan Frank

"But is up guys welcome into fancy in sports podcast. This is your host vague. I R- Today we're going to be digging deep into the N._F._l.. Draft mostly by fancy football perspectives now today. I'm glad to be joined by Ryan Frank. He's a host of talking sports with Ryan podcasts and when he discusses the N._F._l.. Fantasy football golf has interviews with a lot of different personalities so welcome. I Ryan how you doing. I'm good thanks for having me. Man should be fun no problem. It's GONNA be a blast so I I was thinking we could discuss the draft and it's like recap it just surprises of the draft so for me yeah so for me. I found the fourth pick clean. Farrell bill was a massive reach on my part. Do you have any take on him. Yeah I mean that was a surprise with the raiders everywhere I saw he was kind eh being projected around that twenty fifth twenty sixth spot so I mean anybody from that Clemson dis a they can play. I mean their whole clemes their whole defense. It's of line got drafted base. Go in the first round so <hes> but with guys like Josh Allen Ed Oliver on the board. It was a little bit of read she almost feel like the raiders got a got him at twenty four but <hes> I guess if you like a guy you like a guy but it it was a bit of a reach yeah. Now I get that totally because especially since on on that D. Line like obviously D. Line is probably one of the best in all of college sports all college football and that creates like sort of issue where you have you don't know which is the one that's the creating the disruption on a particular play so like when you have clear and fair when you have Dexter Lawrence <hes> like you have so many guys on that line three drafted in the top seventeen that you don't know who's being the most impactful player and it's difficult to evaluate yeah. No I totally agree I so I just WanNa get your take on this because like I I was watching. Daniel Jones get drafted a number six yes and that seemed to me as a massive reach. So what's your opinion on him and do you think that the giants like did what would this week. I think I think I mean all these mock drafts going up. You know it's funny. All these mock drafts they're usually never that accurate but I mean all of them had them taken Dwayne askins peck and but apparently they had heard it. I believe in like Dan Patrick or something. He Gots Mandel that they really love this kid but my it wasn't a fact that they took him in general but it was a fact that they took him at that pick. I mean they could have got him at seventeen. I think if they like I mean is again one one of those. If you like him you go up and get your guy but this kid just. I don't see it personally <hes>. I've watched a little bit of them in the A._C._C. and I mean he didn't even play well against against a good opponent like Clemson and wake forced. He's got the measurable you six five to twenty but I mean he lost one of his last college games fifty nine two seven seven wake forest so I just don't see it. You know maybe with a couple a year or two behind Eli he can develop and that's probably the best situation for him but right right now. I just don't see him being a great quarterback. I completely agree. I had him ranked as my number five quarterback and even even than is legally like I had collar Maria Dwayne Haskins. I had <hes> drew lock. I'd Ryan Finley. I thought all of them were better just because Daniel Jones like he he does have the <hes> intangibles that were looking for in his stature but I'm very concerned about his arm because whenever I see him he doesn't seem to be able to throw downfield in like an accurate manner and away and he also seems like he isn't very aggressive as thrower. You're kind of like Lamar Jackson. He's always run first mentality so I I honestly think he is just a massive reach at the spot especially when you had like other quarterbacks like Dwayne Haskins drew lock on <hes> available at that spot and you even have like impactful defensive players like Ed Oliver Josh Allen and I feel like that would have really fit their needs better yeah. No I agree. I think they for sure if they liked him. They probably could have got him at seventeen but you know who knows if the broncos or somebody like that would have drafted them but I just didn't see it so there there was a story that came out today <hes> that Dave Gelman told the media Ed that he had Intel that to other people were going to other teams are going to take jones like prior to seventeen spa but like who knows how you are accurate that is because obviously he saying that in dollar thing is like I feel as if if you drop someone within the top ten if you're saying he's your franchise has type of guide them. Why are you making excuses just the fact that he's already making excuses for his pick two shows me that like ours Ian of Dave Galman has a plan and how the giants are GonNa go? We also go to think that this is the same guy who said they didn't extend Odell Beckham to trade him so I don't know what's going on in New York but <hes> it's a mess right now yeah and then another surprise was this one was is just more based on availability like Jacksonville got a great pickup at number seven by Josh Allen since teams who really needed him like the raiders like like the giants like he was available for them still didn't take him the edge rusher in linebacker like I honestly I thought he was going to go to the the raiders I die is perfect for scheme so at that's just something that I was astounded by yeah and I think Josh Jaguars Defense is already already pretty good and it has been the last couple of years and sure they've had some moving pieces with guys going elsewhere but I mean him and that Jaguars defense. I think it's still a great it fit and they gotta steal where they got him to know. That definitely is right like getting Josh Allen number seven is incredible bargain again at Jacksonville just based off of that pick like the that's just really good. They also got <hes> Reiko the Ryan Bax like it's interesting that they were able to pick both of them at their spots all right. Those are two great picks for sure I agree with you. Yes <hes> next back to the giants I mean they just had in my opinion a awful draft <hes>. They drafted Dexter Lawrence so I was wondering I do like him as a player because I don't see what a lot of other people see. I thought he was more of a end of first round. <hes> start of second round type of pick yeah I think from what I saw he was he was projected around the the last few picks in the first round so I mean it's yeah once again. It is a reach but I think that what's going to be interesting is the pick that got from adult of the Odell trade so he's always going to be compared even though they don't play the same position as like hey that's. That's the draft pick that we used when we traded Odell. I think he's GonNa he can still be a great player. He's a good run run stopper so <hes> you know with them playing Dallas twice a year and having Zeke and playing the eagles who still like to run the ball and the Redskins who are going to lean on the run so there you know they should it. He's going to be a run stopper if he can. I think he's going to pan out but yeah it was still was a little bit of a reach and like he also tested positive for Austrian Austrian which is a <unk> muscle growth supplement in like a hormone so that made him unable to play in the championship game so yeah we hope does issues don't like come through with him towards the N._F._l.. And hope he just stays out of trouble and yet just models <unk> yeah. No I hopefully everything goes well for him. So I am number Nineteen Jeffrey Simmons so he had an incident in high school where he assaulted a women who is fighting Jeffrey sister and they had previous bad blood on the other hand however and like it's obviously inexcusable action and that took a lot of teams they put him off of their draft towards resolving never to draft him regardless of what spot by want to talk more about his talent. So what do you see out Jeffrey Simmons and like where would you project them. If it was only based off a talent I mean clearly really the guy has talent you know played defensive tackle the S._e._C. so I mean you have to have talent to do that. And if he stays healthy I think he can be a great contributor to that titans defense so <hes> you know obviously his off the field stuff a whole another topic and could come back and buy them but <hes> yeah I mean I think he overall. He's a he's a great talent and I think that if he's putting the right system which you know I I liked the Tennessee's doing on defense. I think that he can contribute and be be just fine. I'm not saying it's going to be like all pro or anything but I think he can be a contributor on that defense yeah yeah I totally agree. I like Jeffrey Simmons. It's undisputable that he's incredibly talented definitely more talented than where he is drafted just <hes> the the previous character issues the good thing though is that Mississippi State stands by his character and they've said that <hes> after the incident he carried himself like <hes> who they want all their players to be so hopefully that stays like that and <hes> Jeffrey Simmons can have a good career with <hes> no off the field issues shoes and at twenty three. I wanted to get your opinion on tightest Howard since you had other offensive linemen like cody Ford wardle Joon Taylor already. They're like a left on the draft boards. So why do you think the Texans chose ties Howard and do think it's a good fit from everything and I don't know too much about this kid but obviously they needed old line help so you know Shawn Watson got sacked a ton last year I would say I think that John Taylor was a great fit as well but for some reason he kept dropping but yeah I mean it's hard to say I don't look at a lot of these offensive lineman to be honest with you. I don't watch a ton of film I mean I watch film but obviously they saw a bunch of things they liked in this kid so <hes> it's hard to go wrong with offensive guard offensive tackle in the first round. It's not a sexy pick but it's definitely something something that's needed and so I mean they saw their guy and they saw guy they liked so they went up and grabbed him. Yeah I mean I I honestly like I did not like the pick it all with <unk> I had cody Ford as one of my top offensive linemen and just having him out there in the thing that John Tiller he fell so far in the draft file into the second round where early projections had him being like a a fringe top ten pick so it's crazy to see see him follow that far but yeah that's just how it is. They chose ties Howard this other guy that got him so over. You could have a good career since yeah. No it's it's it's interesting to see all these mock drafts but then all these other rankings and then you see see all these kind of I won't say off the wall picks but you just see these guys in our opinion. It's a reach but in their opinion it could have been their number one guy. You know just never know just like if you look at the giants the giants obviously they believed in Daniel Jones when no one else would so there's always the that's my guy factor into all these teams draft boards definitely so next we had on this like the last major surprise. This is only the first for strategy behind like there were plenty of <hes> there are plenty of like surprises throughout the entire draft but I saw Mont Sweat dropping to twenty six and Washington as incredible like fall from what he had been projected to go because of his four four one combine forty which is one of the fastest by defensive linemen and his tape <unk> spoke for itself us gray on tape so it came out that he had a heart condition that took him off the board so I was wondering how you evaluate prospects that do have like a health concerns and how far down like especially specific to the heart like how that changes your perspective on these prospects yeah I heard that as well and I mean clearly and I don't know what the exact condition was but first off Washington had a great draft which is odd to say they didn't <hes> they ah they got great value almost everywhere they drafted <hes> but yeah they gotta steal and Montas sweet especially if this heart condition doesn't isn't serious and I don't think he wouldn't pass Hasa physical to get drafter even be at the you know. I don't think it would be an issue. I mean he clearly. He's gotta go <unk> through some medical protocol of some sort so. I don't think it's as big of a deal as people are anticipating. It is and I I I see her conditions as like they're pretty difficult to evaluate which obviously is hidden as how far you drop because like heart condition like sometimes you can play through certain issues or you could like if you see steph curry in the N._B._A.. Like he had anger issues early in his career but then he fixed those up in now his ankle isn't as large of a concern but heart conditions kind of stay with you like you either have don't and it takes priority over everything else because it's your heart and like obviously you need your heart to survive so hopefully hopefully for him. It's not as serious and hopefully he can be a contributor so yeah so <hes> winners and losers from the draft for me. I had <hes> forementioned Washington On Gary like all that but I think the chase Winna Vich is maybe one of the best players from that team and you got Jarrett Stidham at the price you did which I think thank he could be. The successor to Tom. Brady isn't just like having a backup quarterback. He is going to take the reins. Do you think Jarrett Stidham will end up being their quarterback <hes> like after Tom Brady retires. I'm sorry you're cutting out there just for a second tuck it on. Do you think that Jarrett Stidham will be like the quarterback of the future for the Patriots. It's really hard to say on that. Not because who knows how how many more years Brady's GonNa play it's he's playing incredible. Obviously we all know that and he doesn't show any signs of slowing down and they've drafted guys in you know they've draft guys in the past and everyone's like up here. This is the you know he's replacing radio. <hes> look at Garoppolo Rappalo <hes> and so they've had this in the past. It's hard to really say sure they got younger the backup quarterback position because I believe that Brian Hoyer <hes> and he still might be on the staff. I'm not quite sure <hes> but it's really hard to say I mean he's he's got some talent but he's he's pretty raw and I e Oh sure sure if you can sit behind one of the best quarterbacks of all time if not the best and learn from them for a couple of years. I just don't know Brady's GonNa be done in two years three years you know. How long do you keep a you you know? I just don't know it's hard to say the Patriots though but they are on their draft once again they're playing. They're playing chess and everybody else was playing checkers and now for sure the one position that the Patriots haven't done great in the past is drafting wide receivers but hopefully ankle Harry can break the mold. He has a game similar to that of like he could play a comparable role to rob Gronkowski despite their differing positions but I see a red zone target I see someone who could get up and get it just like Gronkowski can so what do you think in Kiel Harry's like <hes> redraft value is going through his dynasty value later but <hes> his redraft values for this year. I think that this was a great pick and and he is one of without giving away my rankings later he's my number one wide receiver river for <hes> for rookies with that back because you put anybody in that patriots offense catch the ball like he can and you have the best quarterback in of all time time with them losing Hogan and they lost rock. There's there's some and nobody knows what Josh Gordon. You know if he's going to be able to come back so there's you lose a couple of guys in the gain him you know there's a lot of balls to be caught around that offense so I think that he could come in and immediately mmediately be effective so <hes> I really liked that pick and I I watched a lot of PAC twelve box out here on the West Coast <hes> and so I've got got to watch him and he is a really really good receiver. Now I completely agree especially because like <hes> although they did get awesome Severi Jenkins begins to get some of those targets from the vacating row of Rob Gronkowski. I just don't believe in a superior Jenkins's talent. He's like I he. We all know who he is. He's been in the N._F._l.. For Awhile so and especially with like Josh Gordon like <hes> prior to the latest defense he had received a one year suspension suspension <unk> <unk> before this now you have another offensive. It's at least going to be another year meaning that this year for sure <hes> like Josh Josh born won't be on the team and I doubt he's ever going to play football again unfortunately like he has inner demons that take like <hes> the foremost was priority over his football career so I'd like to talk about like cuyler Marine Josh Rosen and like do think Arizona should have drafted collar our Murray and your opinion on the trade <hes> they traded Josh Rosen to dolphins they exchange for a second and a fifth round pick. So what do you think about the entire situation. What a look I think when you bring in a new coach which you know a lot of people were shocked that they brought in a coach got fired from a college team and I think with that you know air-raid sal offense? He's GonNa Bring that into the N._F._l.. And if you'RE GONNA IF YOU'RE GONNA have a new coach you might as well if you have the opportunity which they did get him the quarterback that he wants because really then there's going to be okay you you don't have as many excuses as why we're not winning because we're we're surrounding you with everybody that you want and obviously we knew cliff. Kingsbury had a huge man crush Sean cuyler. Mary I mean it was came out before he even took that job that if you have the number one pick in the draft you take Murray and of course there was surrounding just rumors of Oh. He's GonNa go number one. No He's not going to respond and vice versa. I'm sure they didn't handle it probably the greatest with Josh Rosen and nothing against Josh Rosen. He's a great quarterback once again. I'm a pack twelve guy I and so he was a great quarterback and I just think that yeah if you're gonNA give that coach coach give him all the weapons that he wants and and see where the chips fall and so I think it's a great landing spot. I mean you you surround cuyler Murray. You have have him with a veteran Larry Fitzgerald. You Have David Johnson up all pro running back you. Have you know who who else did. They surround what they surrounded them with <hes> they have Christian Kirk they have you know so they got weapons and so there's going to be not a whole lot of room for hey. We're losing ballgame so I like Color Murray and I hope he succeeds so it's going to be interesting to watch though yeah no for sure like with Arizona like they all they also got wide receiver talent. COMRIE got Andy Isabella in the second round pick their second round pick that got Josh Rosen who I honestly think like he's a law better than people think like if you put could Josh Rosen the prospect into this year's draft like outside of Arizona I'd say I'd say that he'd be the number. One quarterback for many teams is just because Colin Murray he does have some unknowns with his height <hes> with him like he is a very mobile quarterback but that comes with some shortcomings and like I I think that Josh Rosen would have been at least the number two quarterback in this year's class if we didn't know what we knew last year and Arizona didn't have have like a good surrounding cast for him last year with the terrible offense of line so I think that Arizona definitely one in this draft but <hes> if they had traded Josh Rosen prior to the draft so that like his value when take a hit after they drafted in our quarterback I feel as if they could have gone a lot ah larger compensation and they could use that in a different way especially considering those very late second round pick yeah but I think they tried to and I think they wanted wanted either wanted too much or there wasn't that many suitors for Joshua's Outta had him on my second quarterback as well behind Kyle Murray I mean he actually he landed for him. He landed in a great spot so I mean all he's gotTa do is beat out Ryan Fitzpatrick and he's the starting quarterback for the dolphins so <hes> but I think the Arizona tried to trade him earlier they just there's a lot of moving parts that they pride in handle the best but <hes> I think they wanted too much. I think they're still all trying to get that first round value no one was willing to give them that because they saw josh a year Josh Rosen game film and obviously they only want a few games so yeah especially like I there rumors circulating that until pig twenty or twenty one they had been asking for a first round pick and after after that they realize oh wait we need ask for things so they start asking for to change but by then like you're only have a very small sample size of first round except and especially since a quarterback market like it already was small at that point Washington had gone there guy by pig twenty they'd gone join haskins sounds like the all these teams. I needed a quarterback either like they had God set in free agency or they gone set in the draft meaning meaning that like you had just had a lot less demand for Josh Rosen and that served as a negative for the Arizona cardinals by still think that they were winners in the draft because like on a huge fan of scheme Butler will touch on him later but I actually had him as a top three wide receiver prior to the draft and she slept all the way to the Fort Ron which for me is crazy and for yeah go ahead. I was just say I agree with you. I think Arizona degree in the draft as well yeah and for me some losers like giants we already discussed Daniel Jones <unk> Dexter. Williams seems like I'm not a fan of either after spot like I think that Dexter Williams he can be a good player but I see him. As more of a late first round Daniel Jones he he wasn't even in my top four quarterback so I don't know why they grabbed him and the raiders so especially since you had the Khalil Mack Amari Cooper Trade and Khalil Mack amounted to a safety at the end of the first round and obviously the next year pick and then in <hes> Amari Cooper ended up as Josh Jacobs so <unk> like to get your opinion on dislike the raiders in general. Do you think that are as large largest loser as I do and like what do you think of their draft day general use of the raiders yeah. I think you know the the reach in the first round obviously at number four has everybody questioning but I think that them getting Josh Jacobs at twenty four great. They get the running. I'm back. I'm GonNa had excuse me. They had obviously that marshawn Lynch <hes> retire so they had to go out and get a running back. I think he's going it'd be a great fit and and so that part's one of their highlights of their draft I think may I can and Gruden. They're going to get a couple Oh years trying to get this thing right especially with the move and so obviously they got a B already in a trade and so I think overall overall I I don't I didn't look every single pick. They have right at this moment to be honest with you but I think the judge Jacobs going to be a great and he's I think he's the dynasty the rookie running back number one <hes> if if I had to rank by running backs right now for rookies so <hes> granted. It wasn't a great running back class but I I think he's GonNa do great and I think he's going to contribute right away. Yeah I totally agree like entering the draft I had him as my number one and exiting like he's definitely Louis number one running back with the spotlight he doesn't have to be that much. Yes it beat out in aging Isaiah Crowell off for that like a starting running running back slot and especially considering a lot of the other rookie running backs Danko to as desirable places where either they have to wait or they're going to be part of a committee like I think that Josh Jacobs he into perfect spot for dynasty owners and yeah like I I love. I'd love to see like what he does in the N._F._l.. Oh because I believe is talent. Although he was in a three way timeshare at Alabama he definitely landed in the right spot so now how about we move onto like fantasy recap of the whole thing we so far. We've just covered it more in general <hes> surprises winners losers but let's move on to some quarterbacks mainly as a fancy <hes> football thing we already talked a lot about collar Murray but I honestly I think in the air raid offense like he's GonNa have massive upside with this are rushing floor and like how do you think that bodes for the team seem like do you think it boosts running game boosts the passing game like it gives that offense more upside or do you think it's more of a lateral move between Josh Rosen and I Tyler Murray. Oh It's definitely an upside I mean look at offenses that have running quarterbacks or mobile quarterback for that matter. I mean the the quick comparison Evita Russell Wilson Nelson. Obviously they have a lot of a lot in common similar size similar backgrounds baseball that good stuff I don't I think that the heights going to be an issue for car. The Murray <hes> but yeah adding the renting dimension sure from especially from fantasy perspective is going to is nothing but upside so yeah he's quick. He's GonNa find out that there's a lot of Deanza can run similar forty times to him but <hes> and linebackers but I think it's nothing but a positive as long as he can stay healthy bettas and like Collor Murray he definitely has less as a Mike being a first round draft big number nine two <hes> light. My Hi local teams the Oakland A.'s like it shows that he has that athleticism he can run and the good thing about him. Despite a smaller stature is that he knows rose went to get down went to slide and he isn't like a R._G.. Three in which he would go for the extra yard even if it like compromise you like Colin Murray. He knows how sliding he uses that ability very well to like prevent injuries so next I was thinking like what do you think about Daniel Johns <hes> like more of his talents like where he's good where he isn't in his dynasty value you yeah I mean from a fantasy dynasties perspective there. There really isn't much to say because unless Eli or to get it hurt because I mean I'm assuming you're going to play at least one or two more years and even at that I mean Eli is he really a top like twelve quarterback unless you're playing like a twenty team Mhm League and you WanNa handcuff handcuff Eli. I just don't see his value at all. There's no value this year for sure. I mean Like I don't really know <hes> I don't first of all like you. I is a starter right now and he isn't a fancy asset or at least one that isn't unlike super flags or two Q._B.. League like Daniel Jones. I kinda seem as the same person because he needs to work on his arm strength and there's just a lot the things he's fairly Rosza quarterback and even in the A._C._C.. He didn't make like <hes> the lake all A._C._C. teams so I honestly just I don't like him but at a the number fifteen position like Washington drafted Duane askins so <hes> do see anything that concerns do DC anything that you like and like what do you think about is value in redrafting dicey yeah. I think that you know from his standpoint point. He was upset obviously that he didn't get drafted by the giants but realistically he landed in a better place. I mean he landed. He's close to home <hes> he. He wouldn't have played right away in New York and I think he plays you know he has the chance to play right away in in Washington self <hes> who have case keenum their believer Yeah Alex Smith who was obviously injured so I mean he has the chance to play right away as far as <hes> fantasy perspective. It's hard to say I mean they don't have weapons yet. They're getting there <hes> but I think they're trying to set them up for success eventually and so I I mean yeah I I would draft him. He got him as my number two. <hes> dynasty rookie sorry not dynasty but just as rookie of fantasy wise quarterback so <hes> <hes> you know if they can strand him with a little bit more talent. I think he has the chance to succeed. I mean he he did good things at Ohio state. He just not very mobile. Yeah Yeah No. I I completely agree. I like his arm talent. I had him as my number two quarterback this year dynasty in redraft like entering the draft and I think he just it remains there like I think he has <hes> he found two really good spot for him. I agree that the giant spot probably win fit him out. You already had like like rumors coming out that they didn't really like him as a player so I think that Duane fell into a good spot just to veer off a bit like I know we're talked a lot about quarterbacks but I've been asked everyone I know about this. What do you think about Bryce love because Washington drafted Bryce love in the fourth round to be under under guys under Adrian Peterson under Chris Thompson for now? So what do you think about breslow because he obviously has like massive upside. We saw his wash brilliant side. He also gets injured a whole lot yet. What's interesting is I was talking to one of my buddies? I mean last year. If bryce love would have came came out he would have probably been a first or second round draft pick then he got hurt and then all just kind of went downhill from there they I believe they they drafted like in the fourth round and I mean I don't know what they're doing. Dairies guys and you have A._p.. WHO's probably got? I think he's there for another one or two years. It's a very crowded backfield and I think it's just a play away for twenty twenty. I mean it's he's going to not get pro. He probably might not even play down <hes> next year so this is a total like twenty twenty any play <hes> and they're investing in him so <hes> yeah if you want to take a stab on them if you're in like just twenty two twenty you too team Dynasty League which I played him before like one of your last picks you could take them into stash him but other than that I just don't see any value <hes> at the moment but I mean he does of a ton of upside. He's one of the guys can just take it seventy five eighty yards with you know snap of finger like it. It's very very difficult to question his town with seen him like producing numerous times over and over again but then like <hes> on his injuries resist have side tracked him so heavily in his career and I think that just doesn't bode too well for him. So what do you think about drew lock going to Denver and and do you think that he is like a really good prospect and since he's obviously very polarizing with his arm and his accuracy issues which is why do you think about him yeah. The guy's got an arm on him for sure and obviously I have them ranked ahead Daniel Jones and quite frankly most quarterbacks are probably ahead of Daniel Jones's. This is because of playing time but I think he's GONNA be able to learn under learn under flaco a little bit <hes> but my guess is he's going to see the field this year because if you if Denver for start seeing that you know one oh and four one and three start are going to be calling for July and they want to see what you know see what the kid's got they drafted him so <hes> they still got Emmanuel Sanders Philip Lindsay Royce Freeman Court with Sutton still have some decent weapons around also got Noah Fan as a you know one of the new tight ends who's who's going to be really good good and so I think drew lock is going to have some weapons around him to play with. It's just a matter of when he sees the field and I think that Kinda all determines on on how they start the season out as far as record wise and I totally agree like he has armed talent he's made those n._F._l.. Ready throws in college college and he does have enormous potential but he's just so raw in fearless and like those water you thinking throws just like throw me off. I I still have him ranked a law higher than no John's even higher than like Ryan Finley but he's my number three quarterback entering the draft so yeah asleep sweeper Alma just throw is like jared. Obviously we know he is on the Patriots and like people usually look at the top end of the draft raft to see oh which are quarterbacks would they like in their dynasty rookie drives but when you're stepping into the role if he gets that starter job which I believe he will at least for a bit like if he steps into the Patriots offense even if ballot check retires you'll have josh mcdaniels likely as the head coach offensive minded ended head coach. Who's like really help? Tom Brady and I think that Jarrett Stidham is going to be a quarterback that you really want to have in your leagues yeah my if I had to pick kind of a sleeper on that aspect I would actually go will greer because <hes> we don't quite sure no the health of Cam Mhm Newton and so I think that'd be an interesting thing to watch is just you know obviously he did some good things at West Virginia clearly this is wade way down dynasty drafts but in definitely won't be drafted in redraft but you know watch out for Cam Newton's health and will greer he. He's you know they drafted afternoon to kind of be his backup. I believe yeah like warrior is he. He can step in right now. I think he's the most N._F._l.. Ready quarterback it. Just his upside is so limited that I like. He deserves to go where he did. Maybe a bit earlier but <hes> like he can step in right now be he could be like a career backup. That's very good like he's the ultimate backup in my opinion. Oh yeah he could be a crew back. Make you know twenty thirty million dollars. Listen live a good life so twenty thirty million dollars a lot more than I like. I'm every gay guys like He. He can make a Olivia offered that no kidding you know sit there and have a clipboard in your hand. Yeah I yeah I get that so now announced move onto the wide receivers that thank we've already gone so deep into the light dynasty rankings of quarterbacks like from here on now it gets very dry like you have the Clayton Thorson's of the world bridge like although like fancy pros like <hes> Bobby Sylvester. He really loves him like honestly I. That's how low you're getting after this point so I yeah so I talk about a Hollywood brand which is markey's Brown if you didn't know he has as a novelist frank injury and he missed Olov last season probably GonNa miss a lot this season but he went to the Ravens in the first round so they obviously spent stand that draft capital so what do you think about him and his dynasty value given the current lining spots yeah I mean I think he was by far are one of the best if not the best receivers in the draft so I mean they just saw and they like we gotta take them. <hes> you know is a study in college when he's healthy like you said it seems to me that he only catches <hes> now he he's only going to catch passes from Heisman heisman trophy winner so I mean he called Balls Kyle Murray now. He's GonNa catch him from Lamar Jackson so this is going to be great for the Mar- if he can stay healthy in the second year to give them some more weapons and especially quick you know quick receivers so I believe the ravens have a new offensive coordinator Greg Roman and so this can be interesting to watch if Roman lamarcus kind of work together and be on the same page <hes> hopefully they don't lean on the Marta run as much and hopefully they <hes> him in Hollywood Brown can in kind of build a rapport and like I- I ranked Hollywood Brown as probably my number one just based off for talent but his injuries slid down a bit in my draft boards but like just soy based off a talent I loved Hollywood brown coming out of school and I thought it could be like he could be a very good like wide receiver too wide receiver one type in the N._F._l.. And he can make an impact act pretty soon after his injury and I think he's like a Sean Jackson in the way he plays and his abilities to go downfield field but also <hes> gone we aroud slants screens which is good for Lamar as he boys law short pass game but this like his posting go routes are going to be wasted <hes> in that offense in my opinion so next like I've seen this guy as the number one wide receiver for dynasty in like so many different so many people's rankings experts everyone. I'm just not as high on him like to hear what you think on Ankara Harry drafted by the Patriots in the first round as the all aspects yeah. No I mean I have him by number one as well just because of the situation you got put in and and I've I've watched him in the PAC twelve I said before you have yes. They lost like we said before they lost rock and Hogan. I'm the picked picked up an injured you know kind of an injury injured Maria's Thomas for dirt cheap but <hes> He Harry's a stud and I mean you have the goat throwing the ball. It's going to make an immediate impact and I seen comparisons to like like a Dez Bryant comparison so it's GonNa be interesting to see how he fits but I I just don't see how you can't rank him so that high just because of the situation he fell into so it's GonNa be interesting to see but I have him as my number one rookie wide receiver dynasty Hennessy was for me like I don't believe in his talent as much as other people do still think that he could be a great wide receiver in the League for me the main main thing that's taking me a bit down. Him is the situation like I think a lot of people are like hyping up the Patriots situation but when I think that Brady's only gonNA have like two more years of great production and like probably three or four more years three years left in the league so I think that after that it's so uncertain that I have other guys ranked higher in my dynasty rankings but I just think that the situation may not be as good as people think I think it is but he is very strong does have like a great frame. Tall can go up and get it so I see the talent I just I don't know about the situation there there so what about A._J.. Brown he went to the titans in the second round and like I considered him to be my number one wide receiver all things considered seared injuries and whatnot entering the draft by right now he's fallen so far my rankings due to where he ended up. So what do you think about him do you you think you'll be able to do well in the league and I as a fancy asset. You know what I mean. You're right. He getting drafted the titans. GonNa kill his fantasy stock a little bit. I mean the Guy I was astounded. Ole Miss had thirteen hundred yards and six touchdowns but he's going to be kind of that one or two to Corey Davis but I mean unless Tennessee opens up the playbook and gives Marcus Marcus a little more freedom to throw the ball I mean they lean on the run game with their Kennedy and Dion Lewis and the little screen passes and the Atom Humphries in the slot a lot. I mean there's a lot of mouths to feed their with little <hes> manage little passing the ball so I just I don't know unless they ah I liked it there surrounding. Mary owed more weapons but unless they opened up that playbook then I just don't see the fantasy value from A._J.. Bro Yeah now. I I completely agree especially since like Marcus Mariota. I honestly just don't think that he is conducive to creating like a fantasy. You like producing offense because of just <hes> they run on more run heavy scheme with Derrick Henry like seeing him come on at the end of the season and seeing them get winds taking them into the playoffs. I think that their coaching staffs GonNa continue that train of thought and just try to make them run run run and like <unk> for me killed A._J.. Brown's fancy stock. I do see like slight potential but it's just like I I wish that he lend in airline's fault because I thought he could have been stud for both the League and for fancy <unk> he'll still be gray as a normal asset. I'm just not sure about fantasy right now. So next <unk> agree yeah for sure a next we have I decay Thing but I mean you have one of the better deep ball throwers as well in the N._F._l.. And Russell Wilson with with decay metcalf. I think that that could be a very very very good. <hes> you know marriage so to speak on the field <hes> and I'm anxious to see what the kid can do but <hes> all signs point to the kid. Should it'd be really really good and I have him my number two wide receiver rookies. I I completely agree. I have a mess mind number two. I just think we have different number one wide receivers but I've him as my number two wide receiver for dynasty and I because especially since like the unfortunate news that Doug Baldwin Win <hes> it was reported that he may never play another down in the N._F._l.. Again with three surgeries this year unlike like <unk> tug bond with such great receiver in like like just if we have to go just based off a Mac off obviously terrible for Baldwin but by that frees up autonomy targets and <hes> I think that metcalf can certainly beat out tire lock it <hes> I think he's more just deeply threatened. If D came back can develop into that <hes> like a deep play threat but also gang some shorter term work to keep the defenses guessing and learn to play on the other side of the field like he only played on one side of the field <hes> in Ole miss but I think that if he develops potential thank honestly I think his his oxide is enormous Calvin Johnson by thank that his downside is also huge like he could just be eloquent treadwell so so there there's a wide range of outcomes in my opinion but I think that decay Mac have based on the potential based on his like incredible lanes. Thanks bye other than like Green Bay and maybe the colts. I think it's one a D- best landing spots for him. I think that like Dick Metcalf is of extremely highly coveted fancy asa after the draft yeah no he definitely landed in a great spot for for real real football bowl and for fantasy football and then the colts. I think that the codes may have gone like the bar the bargain at the wide receiver a position outside of like Akeem Butler. I think that Peres Campbell going into the second round like in that colts offense makes keys. He is the number one wide receiver in my rankings for dynasty just because I think that you have Devin funchess as like one year rental T._y.. This gang older Andrew luck a ton of time left in that's like a great offense. That's pass heavy that has that touchdown potential with like Andrew throwing forty forty touchdowns forty plus touchdowns last year like an his four three one. Everyone thinks that he's more of a slot receiver but he could rotate throughout the field. Yeah I think that Peres Campbell. He just like a great wide receiver from a real life. Perspective knee landed in absolutely the perfect landing spot. So what do you think about like Campbell and where is he ranked in your rankings. I haven't met number three so I mean behind Harry and decay metcalf half so I mean I think he landed in a pretty good spot. Obviously they're trying to surround Andrew luck with with more weapons and yeah Helton in t y Hilton is is GonNa be Great. He's usually contributes quite a bit. FUNCHESS is still pretty young so I mean he's only twenty four <hes> and so they're actually got a bunch of a CY young wide receiver core <hes> that if they can keep them all together <hes> the it should be great. No I agree with you. I think they gotta steal were they got him out and I just I just have him down number three just because I think the other guys in my opinion landed a little bit better spots but he did land in a great spot and they're gonNA compare them to a Percy. The Harvard is very versatile so hopefully he doesn't have that bus potential as Percy Harbin did but that's they've been seeing him being compared to a lot is harvard and now like I agree that he does have a bit of bus potential but I think I just believe in him as a great dynasty asset so next like our this is one that may get like a bit dicey Miekel hardman he kind of came out of nowhere like <hes> like people who had been ranking like four fancy and stuff like they allow them knew about Miekel harm in but to the general public like he was unknown wide receiver that no one knew about so what do you think about skill set and do think that he can step into like a role like we know that Taibbi kill is. I think he's going to be gone just the atrocious things that he did not even his first offense in like that audio audio clip was obsolete disturbing like hem not even like a being remorseful but like just based on Michael Harman's amp point. Do you think he could step into a similar role as Tyreek Hill like what do you think he is as a fancier asset I think that's going to be it's going to be one of those to be determined. I mean sure he's put in that position because I mean clearly after the tyreek hill situation started to kind of get more fluid they drafted him so obviously they're seeing that his tirade <unk> he shouldn't play other data football. Let alone for the chiefs I just I don't he's probably not gonNA play another down for the chiefs for some weird reason he gets another another shot somewhere else that always happens almost almost <hes> but you know I think Kelsey still the number one target and then Sammy Watkins has yet to really really show that he can be the number one guy somewhere so <hes> I think I think hardman has the ch- he's got. He's put in a great position if tyrod kills kicked off off the team so now it's for him to Kinda. Just take the reins and he he's definitely going to a lot opportunities the way they throw the ball there so <hes> he's definitely a guy to watch out for in the fantasy realm as the kind of this situation plays out and Fisher sure like Terry <unk>. He should never play down football. I think he's GonNa end up in prison. Just based on child abuse case in domestic mystic pounds <unk> deflation plan are down a football. He manned up doing so like we saw with Kareem Hunt like he got a chance again. <hes> Adrian Peterson Persson similar child abuse <unk> God's hands again so we need to see how that plays out but I I definitely think he's not gonNA play down at least for the chiefs so so just based on time constraints. I'm going to move past a couple b-black deebo Samuel for the niners in stuff. I'd just like to get in Mozambican. I'd like to get your the thoughts on Kim Butler and like Andy Isabella for Arizona and how do you think they'll play out. Especially 'cause like any Isabella is a slot receiver <unk> travel into the slot. So who do you think is going to be the number one since the doesn't seem to be established number one outside Larry Kiro than he probably has like one or two years left anyway so do you think that Hakeem Butler could be that <hes> that like diamond in the rough in that fourth round at it could be the Akeem Butler draft class of wide receivers. Yeah I mean I still think that Larry Fitzgerald's GonNa be the number one but yeah obviously he's got one year. Maybe two years left but yeah I mean Akeem Butler and <hes> the the other guy I'm drawing a blank on his name you you just set it and he has a bell. Yeah I mean I think those guys are put in the position of like hey we're going to draft with cuyler and we're going to just kinda. See how all of you guys guys can develop together so I think they both have a good opportunity but now don't don't forget about I would say the number two hundred savers David Johnson still will they use him in the slot and the guy catches you know he can get what sixty seventy balls so these other two guys are going to be kind of fighting for the third word kind of the third share of catches in my opinion but they have the opportunity so I mean there's gotTa go around. You know there's there's plenty of opportunity opportunity around there though I agree that after we star game more of like after Larry after Larry Ichiro because like he he has a year maybe do but yeah I think that like in my opinion I came bowler. He does have the drops in concentration issues and his route running but his catches like he made like they were catches that you barely ever see like even n._f._l.. Receiver make like he makes us highlight reel catches. The shows like the amount of potential is catch radius insane. He could get up and get it like the best them so. I love a game bowler. I thought that it it was pretty good landing spot for him but like especially since they drafted Andy is about and they also drafted keyshawn Johnson like I I own now wires news on drafted three receivers. It's the first time in the <hes> I think like the combination of drafting the team has drafted three wide receivers in a draft so I just found that to be Kinda insane but I believe in came Butler. I think he could be one of the better find receivers from this class so quickly. I'd like to get like like you're just dynasty. quarterback rankings just like <hes> WHO's at what spot for dynasty now for redraft since redraft a law them won't don't get the opportunity this year but in dynasty sense. Who Do you have in your top five yeah so I got Carla Marie obviously for you know reasons reasons we all know <hes> he's GonNa get the best shake and he's he's the starter so <hes> Kyle Moran Dwayne Haskins? I still think he sees the field this year <hes> then. I have drew lock obviously he I think he could see the field this year as well <HES> IF FLACCO starts to slip up <hes> and then I have will greer ahead of Daniel. Neil Jones <hes> just because the opportunity he's got a better opportunity because no one knows Cam Newton's health yet so I mean who knows if Cam Newton misses the first couple of games of the season insert will greer not sure that's going to happen but that's why my rankings are the way they are now so <hes> and then I have Daniel Jones so I have Murray Very Dwayne. Haskins drew lock will greer. Dana Jones yeah so for me. I have car Murray's while at the top of Dwayne Haskins my number. Two I have jared did a number three just because like the potential that he he goes into that starting patriots spot is just huge. Obviously he won't be anything for another two to three years ears. I believe in town. I think that he could be a starter. There ends a better situation than like any of the other players here my opinion <hes> if if he becomes a starter so it's more of a risky pick than number four of drew lock and number five of Dow Jones and honorable mentions. I give two one two Ryan Finley on the bengals because I'll know if Andy Dalton has too much time left in the N._F._l.. And I think that they want to develop Ryan Finley so yes I have Kyla Maria Dwayne Haskins <unk> Drew Lock Daniel Jones Honorable Mention Ryan Finley. So how about your wide receivers what do you have <hes> A- as your rankings of them so yeah we kind of went over these a little bit before but I'll give you the rundown I have Mikhael Harry Decay Metcalf. I have Paris Campbell. Will I have Hollywood Brown and A._J.. Brown even though we gotta discussed earlier about his not the idea landing spot yeah and for me I have Paris Campbell decay metcalf and then I'll make a quick change. I've INC YO Harry is number three Michael Hartmann as number four just because if he could step into tyreek role <hes> H- you'll have so much upside in the offense I think he could be like the number to pass catcher outside of drivers cousy <unk> Sammy Watkins. He hasn't really lived up to all this potential in Ne- has those foot injuries that Nag him a number five keen Butler and the honorable mentioned to A._J.. Brown so I have Campbell metcalf in kill Harry Nicole Hardman and Hakim Butler so a quick note about yeah go ahead. I was just going to say I was GONNA make a slight change about McColl McColl ahead of A._J.. For the record yeah I just think he has the upside given like the situation he's in. I definitely think that's talent challenge to be in the top five but like he does have a lot of similarities to Atari. Kill <hes> outside of his like speed. He still pretty fast but he is an Olympic athlete tyreek. I think that he runs a the same routes he has played in special teams like tyreek and he could Kinda step into that role so I think that's the reason why they selected him because there's so many are wide receivers with different skill sets. I think they just want the one closest to Taibbi. Kill as possible yeah I agree. I am just a quick note about a first year or backs wide receivers for listeners like not ought really that good for fancy at the start of their careers and they need to develop trust and camaraderie so for redraft like every single year you have people saying I wanNA take a really late round fire on this guy this guy right but I think that just go for the veterans go for the <hes> upside the dam because wide receivers don't often duo so at the start so we're running a bit on time so I think that's going to be for podcast so Ryan. Where can you find your podcast and <hes>? Can you give just a quick promo about it. Yes so you could find me. The couple main platforms is obviously apple podcasts and spotify. There's a quite a range of other platforms you can find me but those are the main two. I'm and it's just called talking sports at the Ryan so just

"Golden state media concepts. Fantasy football podcast is your one stop shop for Fetisov Football News and advice sign rooted draft, first round, cowing Gaga, and how a lot of your team got. You covered additionally sinus esteem leaks he arlene I DP DP lead. Daily Fantasy football league. Djilas, we'd breakdown all the question of fantasy football. It's the golden state media process fantasy football podcast. Hello and welcome to the MC. Fantasy football park has hosted by the MC on their podcast. I am one of their hosts that you here on Tuesday and Fridays for fantasy football, Ethan and I. Hope Everyone is having a wonderful day as far. I am because I can smell in the air I can taste it. In. The building. Football is almost here man for NFL we've already had some college games that I had to watch for GMC College football, and that was real fun and there's going to be one probably by the time this is recorded and uploaded. Probably be watching that navy versus Byu game that is basically gonNA. Kick off the twenty twenty season with a bigger game on the schedule and something of some similar importance. How many of the biggest games? PROBABLY MEMPHIS BECAUSE MEMPHIS is the only one that. Supposedly, ranked in a people so. Here we are fantasy is almost here Thursday is coming. So we have to talk about our first NFL Thursday night preview of the year. Are you excited I am and I can't wait to get in but I talk about what happened over the weekend I had to drive at two in particular what am I felt okay about one or the other one's not so much but we are going to get into that and then we're GonNa talk about, of course, the matchups who do we expect to be good who do we expect to struggle? That is coming all the more soon. But I get into a right so. First things first, what do we have going on here and fantasy football land for me? So my team I was ended up drafting in sevenfold I. BELIEVE IF I remember correctly and it was a bit of a challenge to this fourteen man, league P, p. r. and my ti drafted seven and I ended up after the draft being ranked in ESPN fancy as the. Best Roster I guess how they did it as far as roster strength, but in the first round. I ended up taking. Alvin Kamara I was six actually I was six in a fourteen minute leaks. So not too terrible. I got album Kamara. So I got one of the you know one of the Super Six I'd call them I. Guess One of those super six running backs people go ahead and try to get now there was some problems about this right now, a lot of people probably think got album tomorrow at six. So what happened in the first five for you to get him, right? So Chris McCaffrey went first. SAQUON went second. Julio Jones ended up going for now the guy who drafted him. Is. A Falcons Fan and foremost. He's very big time. We talked about him a little bit a few weeks ago actually and. He wants to say his claim he had who queued, but he's the third pick who you'll queued up and he backed out of the draft and I guess the auto picked. Auto picked Julio for him. But that doesn't make a of sense. Why would you have Julio queued up when you the third pick you don't need Q-. Anybody for the third pick. That'd be weird regardless. Right. He drafted. Julio. And the story Julio was taken third overall in the draft. Through everything else out of whack. So Julio went third. Overall then Ezekiel Elliott. Then Derrick Henry went fifth. Keeping minds the PTR league. So that was kind of interesting. Then I'd ended up taking I'm Kamara so all in all, you know first round for me was pretty solid and getting my favorite player for one and to play who I think is bound to have a nice bounce back year. So I'm Kamara went sixth and seventh went down and cook the Nick job eight Michael Thomas went knife Josh Jacobs Temp Deandre Hopkins Went Eleven Michael Mike Evans went twelve tyreek Hill when thirteen. And Clyde ever lehrer went fourteenth now. A. Lotta. Why receivers flew off the board here more than typically I'm used to seeing in my drafts but Michael Thomas Diong Tom's always goes in the first round John Jay Hopkins Typically I, don't see him go first round. This year there hasn't been a first round guy. Mike. Gavin hasn't been necessarily a first round guy. And tyree can kind of get in there sometimes. Second Round was pretty interesting as well because we had our first quarterback taken first overall. So he went Clyde Edwards, and then right back he took Lamar Jackson at the time if it a little hot right but. as time went on quarterback flying off the board and I, guess he was the catalyst for that. But it definitely definitely said that he was going to secure Lamar because in all likelihood even if he's eighty percent of what he was, that's one of the that's going to be a really really good quarterback season and he does have a distinct advantage. Lamar has been going around round two three sometimes I overall in our first round I should say. Many leaves that I've seen and done mock draft in. So it's not really that surprising that it happened. Then right after that it was Aaron Jones who? I'm not very high on. It's not because I don't like Aaron Jones like everybody knows is right. Everybody says they like Aaron Jones, the product Aaron Jones the player in Green Bay problem is ADP is through the roof and it's just not warranted. Keep in mind he had like eighteen touchdowns last year and he's never doing that again in his life I just don't know you could. I would bet a lot of money. The Aaron Jones will not get eighteen, hundred hundred this year because it's just unsustainable, you can't sustain that much touchdown production from anybody unless you're a quarterback, you can't do it so. Aaron Jones at sixteen, you know to each their own, it just wouldn't be my pick. Joe Makes Him went Davante items Patrick mahomes nineteenth. So this is where. Everybody started panicking. For quarterbacks because two of the best just win the first two like in the first two rounds and basically almost back to back. So it start to get a little bit pressure and there are still wide receivers and running backs availables. It was getting kind of annoying but. Also, Necker went twentieth overall Mild Sanders who I was two picks away from and I was real hurt the mouth sanders left my hands 'cause I was really looking to get them and get a nice to running back system going on I couldn't drive man I couldn't get him. So automatically when the Mile Sanders Kenyan drake went which my good friend, David He. was looking at Mile Sanders himself and Kenyan drake ended up falling to him and he's been he's at Kenyan drake before many of times. So not last year though so he's Kenyan drake when Kenyan drake was disappointing fantasy owners year in year out. So this was this he wants to get off this pick basically, but he had to take because it made sense. And we only had an eight game sample size what Kenyan drake look to potentially become. But the same time we have to keep in mind that you know maybe this is year maybe finally we get the Kenyan drake that we've always wanted to see and for that means that we're going to get some really really great play. Coming real soon. and. I would hope that it helps considering that he has one of the best why receivers in the NFL playing alongside him and a quarterback who is going to throw the ball and who's going in a coach that likes to get offensive like you know really offensive minded head coach. He has the idea of getting people to play underneath that system and I think it'll be really good for him is just depending on if he can start off hot or if it's going to be a struggle. So I think. Kenyan. Drake. Is a nice pick in the second round and this kind of indefensible if you don't take him at a certain point is not a lot of running back stuff on the board. So I ended up taking Kenny Golladay who was a guy? I mentioned last week or last Friday rather. To target ended up getting him. So that was nice. secured him. I remember I got him in the mock drafts. Now it's pretty satisfied. So I ended up getting Kenny Golladay as well. Right after that was Leonard for net then travels Kelsey than Chris, Carson thing Chris Godwin then George Kettle. So I'm only going to do probably the first six rounds of this and then do the other six for my other draft league, which was attended league but. We Have Adam theline running out around three. Or. Starting at around three then Colin Sutton. Then Russell Wilson then LBJ. Than Decay Metcalf. Who I was a little bit upset that went right before. So decay metcalf went and I feel I D K metcalf is going to be top fantasy receiver this year top ten he's going to be a top ten fantasy receiver this year and I think. that. Honestly. Both him antilock are going to be really good but I think decay is going to emerge as a wide receiver of the near future as being pro candidate guy being a guy who is going to wreck havoc on the League's enough. His physicals are insane his. Ability. To put like you know physically physically demanding on defenders. There's not that many people who are that physically stout. With the speed to go with, it is just a lot to handle and. Honestly I think that. The seahawks kind of? BABIED him a little bit I wanna say baby that's might be the wrong term but they definitely definitely had him on a leash a little bit, and now they're trying to lose a little bit we off season. He's running a little bit more of the route tree. That's cool. I think decay is GonNa? Be really good. I never taken Amari Cooper. So it's Kinda look at my mock draft. So I gotTa Mark Cooper. Kenny Golladay but Kamara. So that's amazing. We're getting somewhere here. So then Zach Ertz went then Dj more than Allen Robinson who interesting thing about the Chicago Bears Mitchell trubisky is been has been named the starter. And that concerns me so not only. Are Anybody WHO's trying to look into Alan Robinson are look into. Their other. Interesting wide receiver choice there that might be a breakout guy. I don't know Mitchell trubisky can get it done man it's just we've seen enough. We know how these guys role is always in and out and and. There's not really much. He's shown you in the past two seasons. The thing that Mitchell is going to be able to make address changes off season, and the fact that Nick foles couldn't outright win. The job is very concerning for multiple people who might be in keeper leagues or in Dynasty Leagues thought that maybe a guy like. Album, Robinson would be very valuable. I just didn't seem to be the case for me right now and many others I feel like Chicago teams are kind of stay away and that's even me who drafted David Montgomery drafts boiler. So Keenan Allen went after Alan Robinson David Johnson went who I thought would follow bit so I thought I could pick them up later on but people are really on it this year. Tyler. Lockett went henry rugs went now we had a guy he's Kinda young. and. Hey. Sometimes young people have to learn the hard way henry rugs paid into around. Maybe he makes us all look bad and Henry rugs has an amazing you. But that's that's a pretty big reach considering there's far more value to be had but that was one of the reaches Melvin Gordon went forty seconds around the third, and then we get into the fourth round so. Four frowned the trigger happy. He's ended up taking. Robert Woods. Woods. Four around for he mustered goes to forty four F-. Stefan digs those forty fifth to Shawn. Watson goes next. So that's four quarterbacks off the board now. Evan Ingram goes, which is a guy people really high on the forefront. Hi. Mark Andrews goes directly afterwards. Then as Brown who I am not a fan of not a fan of AJ Brown not as in like player I like run into player I. Think it's cool. But as in fantasy wise thing Tennessee is down are do for regression at the wife your position because you just really don't know. I have no clue what Tennessee is defensively besides Derrick Henry in the run game so I need to see it before I trust that. Dj Shark Junior was taken right afterwards and I'm surprised that he didn't fall more. But at the same time, he is literally the only offense weapon they have now that is it. So He's GonNa get some. He's definitely GonNa get the volume. If you wanted I ended up taking James Connor. So he was my second running off the board. So I gotTa Alvin, Kamara James Connor running back duo and I. think that's pretty solid I think James Conner has been a bit undervalued and I think you'll have a nice bounce back here. I'm hoping so because I drop you. Hunter Henry went right after him pretty high Jonathan Taylor went in the fourth round. So I think that's going to be somebody's worst mistake personally because I don't think Jonathan Taylor is going to be what people think he is. Or thinking is planning to be especially since the coaching staff and everybody is so high on. Believing that Marley MAC is the starter and Marlin Mac proven guy I'm taking the proven guy, nine times out of ten. Cooper went lady on bell went and Calvin really went to round out the fourth. Round Todd Gurley went, which is a pretty nice place for the get Todd Gurley, my opinion I thought he might go around and Terry Lauren wind was I also think was really low for Terry, maclaurin because I think he's a top ten fantasy wide receiver this year. The Andrea Swift went Juju Smith Schuster went. and Michael Gala went directly afterwards. This is where ended up taking Dak Prescott. So I have my Running World Wide Receiver quarterback duo for the year is Dot Prescott and Amari Cooper. So hopefully, fingers crossed things go well for that devante Parker went directly afterwards in Kyla Murray T. Y. Hilton Marvin, Jones Darren Waller delvin singled Terry Marquees Brown, and then Mark Ingram. So that's the first five rounds here. We're GONNA, take a break, and then we'll come back with finish around six, and then we'll move on to the other league which I think is far more interesting because a lot of mistakes are happening in my opinion a lot of overs reaches a lot of overshooting gs see. All right we'll be right back with them GMC in a second but first, we have to talk about our good friends from dollar Shave Club, and if you haven't heard a dollar shave club has great razors.

So we're back GMT fencing football mason, and we were just going over the first five rounds of my one of two fantasy drive from last weekend and I gotta finish that out bring up the last round real quick. That way everybody knows what happened and then I'll talk about my whole entire team how I feel about it. So the last round. So around six was Antonio Gibson going at the top of the six round, which is really quality pickup because if you haven't realized by this time around, it's Almost. It'll be Tuesday when you hear this by Tuesday if you don't know I'm here to tell you I Adrian Peterson is no longer on the Washington professional football team he was released and now agent Peterson plays for. Detroit. He plays where Detroit right? So he just got signed there. and. Now. Antonio Gibson seems to be the one guy in that backfield who has a real chance of doing some major volume numbers because reminder of dairy guys. Really, a part of the team right now for multiple reasons and you can look up those reasons yourself so. Antonio Gibson seems to be a guy that might be in that. You know in that running back territory that looks like he's going to get a lot of bump lot of gas. He might be the sleeper of the season really if it's a late sleeper to. So next Jimmy Garoppolo went, which was One. Of the younger younger guys he we try to give them some experience man but it was a bad drafter. So Jimmy Garoppolo in the Matt Ryan went then Tarik Cohen to Rico and went then drew brees Josh Allen. Tyler Boyd which is a good draft pick. Tom, Brady I took cam acres here. So I was really happy about that pick feel like people are kind of sleeping on him and we all know the ram they're trying to do the running back by committee thing but I also feel like the rams type of team. But if you're the one that has the gas, they are going to run you. The most they're going to figure out that you can handle the workload and they're not going to be afraid to use you I. Think Camakers is that Guy Cam Newton went directly afterwards. Jay Dobbins. Went after Cam, Newton Jerry Cook went Jarvis Landry went and then Aaron Rodgers so one. Two. Three, four, five. Six seven quarterbacks went and a fourteen man league in round six that is what you call. Old, man. I don't have a quarterback yet. That's would you call that in a draft but? I shore that was what happened in my ESPN fantasy league draft of fourteen people to tell you what everything else as far as my team goes. Dak Prescott at quarterback. Got Him. In the fifth round I got Alvin Kamara I overall. Or first round in my pig at pick number six, I got James Connor around the fourth-round. Kennedy. I. Got Him Second. In my second round pick and then I got Amari Cooper third. I. Ended Up Getting Austin Hooper closer to the back end of the rounds and he fell very very, very low and I kept sitting on it because I didn't think people are going to take him considering that they didn't get him at higher eighty. So I just waited and I wanted to see what would happen and I feel like hooper might be a really good pickup considering the fact that. You know he's a good target but I do have fears that you know having good wide receiver in Julio Jones. He kind of was fed the ball by design of the system or by proxy of being next to Julio Jones and not because he's this amazing receiving tied in but I still think he'll get some numbers because these around in a lot of other talent to and I think that in a play action system that looks like Cleveland is trying to implement this year I. Think he'll be a good decision to get him involved in into the big target. He'll be open in midfield more often than not I got cam makers look I said in the six round I ended up picking up the chiefs defense now. I didn't put a lot of thought into it besides this said, you know the chiefs score in bunches on offense teams are going to have to throw the ball against them in order to compete. And when there are people are throwing the ball sometimes, they're not the best at throwing the football and they might give up 'cause the interceptions and things like that. So that's what I thought about. Also sacks gotta do sex pick the chiefs defense for that. Greg's kicker. Doesn't really matter I was really sad I didn't get We'll let. You know best kicker and fantasy football as far. Concern in my favorite kicker of course, because he's on the new, Orleans couldn't get him Saturdays on my bench though this is where things get dicey. So I have David Montgomery on my bench I think that's a solid bench pickup considering that I think that he will be equality running back number two when it's all said and done and I'm kind of stashing him because between him and. CAMAKERS WANNA see who's going to earn my flecked spot and I'll try and ship the other one off to help around out my wide receivers because although I like Kenny Golladay a lot I think mark Cooper is really good. I just don't know if Amari cooper will be the bona fide number one night we think or maybe cd-rom comes up and tries to sweep it under the rug and you know basically ruined my chances that fantasy. You know amazing meant fantasy fulfillment. There we go. alliteration fantasy fulfillment like I want to. I Have Preston, Williams on my bench. I think he will be an interesting guy because before the injury he was really one of the better receiving options on Miami. He was getting a lot of yards and devante Parker really wasn't about all that action. But as soon as he got hurt devante Parker basically ascended into this whoever he is right now I'm not sure devante Parker is. That guy and I want to believe that person Williams who he showed us who he was beforehand and I hope that he's all healed up ready to go and I just picked him because I believe that people kinda slept on them because he dig it hurt and it was at a large charter because the season that has left so people kinda just flew in by the wayside. drafted. Alexander Madison only because of the rumors about diving cook now, Dalvin Cook scares me as a player. I would never dropped him this year personally even though I like his game and I think he is when he plays he's really great when he's on the field is really great but injury prone. And he's in a contract negotiation thing. But I think he's GonNa play but I drafted Antonio Gibson or Alexander Madison. For that very reason I think that he's a stash player just wait and see what happens because if he does in fact in getting the starting position. That's an immediate trade to somebody. Right that's somebody who understands the hey I gotta go get him because Dan McCook hurt or Dobbin Cook is holding out or whatever the case may be so. I'm more of the camp of making that. Dobbin Cook does. Not. Announced if somebody doesn't get done by. I guess Thursday I think Tavern Cook may not actually play but at the same time I know that this is a stash and if things go south, you know won't be the end of the world. I'll find someone else to fill the spot. DRAFTED MR, Campbell Peres Campbell out of. Ohio state and he plays Alice and I think that he might be really good. I know I've been a fan of Michael Pittman Junior. Still could have got him. I'm pretty sure he's still on waivers if I really wanted him. But Peres Campbell has lot more upside and a lot more speed and Philip rivers like the throw to speed is sometimes. So if you can get down the field, you can go up there and get it. So I figured I might as well go get him and I probably will also did not want. A whole bunch of. You know rookies on my team and I ended up getting. Two of them. So I got Perez Campbell and also ended up getting Jefferson as my last pick I. believe just because. I think he's interesting player. So I have Corey Davis on my roster don't know how long he'll stay there because you know how I feel about Tennessee wide receivers I just felt like at the ADP you know is good to take fliers on people sometimes, and that's just kinda how it always ends up being real forever for being real here in curbing for real. To take, fliers and my last pick or last player who? Got Jared McKinnon. So Jerry McKinnon is in a running back by committee system, but he's also playing guys like mustard and of course, Kevin Coleman. So He has right now in one thousand, nine percent bust in eighteen percent boom potential I projected nine or five point, nine points per game. This week and it's very possible that he could get more than six points. So not really doesn't matter but to be honest, I don't really know where else you would look to to get somebody of his talent level of ranger McKinnon's very talented back when healthy I just think that there's just too much going on over there. At the forty niners backfield for him to really flourish in it but I would be very, very hopeful for some sort of rotation that involves him and goal line situations that would be fantastic. So maybe he might become a goal line back who knows man who knows but yeah that my espn league right then and there As far as where I stand in the League, if you go to leak protections where actually I've moved up so. I was ten literally two days ago. But I was from start of the day I was tenth place I've moved to knife now. As far as my projections so on draft day I was tempted. And now. I'm knife people have moved around other teams moved around not sure because of via trades people have made. But that seems to be the only way to people went down the drunken birds the. Fantasy football team. That drafted Julio Jones with their first pick at the third spot. And the back door who my friend David owns. He's went down one I don't think he's many trades though let's look real quick. Let's see what has happened here, and upon further inspection I really much has happened. For, our league in general. So in reality is just more so I guess things are happening behind the scenes and people are just moving apart. So that is my fantasy football league for. The ESPN Lee. Now, we have to get into the real fun conversation here the one I've been looking to have. About the other league. So I did a Yahoo League which by far Yahu has some of the most. Intuitive. Draft player. Friendly. I guess interface of all the places. Now, of course, I'm not sponsored here Yahu to say that I just really enjoy it regardless here are the draft results from round one through six, and then of course, we'll wrap some things up. So round one Christian McCaffrey went nausea muscle mentioned that I was seven ten men league here. This is non PR. So this is standard. Leagues. And some things interesting things happen. So Christian McCaffrey went first sake long went second Zeke Elliot went third album Kamara went four derrick henry went fifth as who I was targeting. Then, Cook went six I ended up getting Clyde Edwards Layer Michael Thomas Eighth Joe Mixing with Knife Julio Jones temp. So everything sounds all nice and tidy I don't want to say I reached four Clyde Edwards. Because just think that you know he's going to be what he is I've come around to believe in that you know the ADP ADP and I do think he will be good for them. It will end up being there round two ended up being some of the more interesting stuff going on. So Jordan killer went I in round to the Nick Chubb then Austin Actor, I ended up getting Josh Jacobs. So. That was nice to see how they get Josh Jacobs and Clyde I layer. I think that's a really nice one, two Combo running back Lamar Jackson went. Then, James Carter jumped all the way up to the second round. So James Connor jumped up which I think is a really quality pickup maybe not second round he might have moved up to third. Just because of the fact that we are in a non PBR league. So it doesn't really matter and James Connor is a animal when it comes to getting fed the rock. So good pick up by this young man then Kenyon Drake went after him. Aaron. Jones went then the vaunted Adams tyreek, Hill. So tyreek hill finishes out the bottom of round two. Then round three before we wrap up for break tribes. Kelsey D Andrea Hopkins and Chris Carson. Chris Godwin Odell Beckham Junior, Todd Gurley, the second and I ended up getting Mile Sanders in my third round people forgot about him people slept on them and I ended up getting three running backs in three rounds. All could be potential league winners. Clap it up for you. Boy Right now 'cause I'm I was on cloud nine right there. The fact that I was able to get Josh Jacobs Clyde Edwards. And Mild Sanders in three rounds. Fantastic stuff when we're seeing. You know. We. We see. Of course, James Garner go ahead the mark Jackson win ahead diverted Adams went ahead. Aaron. Jones went ahead. You know. I just feel the girly went before him and old l went before him. It was just a lot of things. A lot of people I would've taken. After Mile Sanders but I ended up getting them. So clap it up for me felt good for that one. Take a break. We're come back finishing this.

Fantasy football nation who were just talking about round three of my fancy drive in the WHO's leading this attention men standards scoring or standard. Draft so was not PR standards going method. And we're about to get right back into it. So round four. Patrick Mahomes went I Kenny Golladay. Once second lay beyond Bill went third. I got Amari Cooper again. So it had been two leagues man to leagues had begun Mario Cooper was fourth. Then Andrews went fifth, DJ? Shark. Aj Brown with seventh. Calvin. Ridley Terry maclaurin. In Melvin Gordon. Round, five Johnson Taylor went which I think I. Still believe that Milton Gordon is our Melvin Litt-. Can't speak Marlin. Mac is going to be the guy there. Then Mike Evans was in the fifth round for some reason that didn't even register to me personally that's absolutely insane. Also side note it hurt me very bad that I couldn't sneaking get Golladay in round four. It would have been it would have been thrashing if I could've got Alvin. Kamara I'm sorry now. If I could have got Clyde Edwards. Then Josh Jacobs. Then Mile Sanders and then. I could have swindled myself and get. Kennedy. Golladay and four rounds I would have been living equality life but that wasn't the case I ended up. Going with. Russell Wilson at my pick number seven, and that's because after Mike Evans Juju. Smith, Schuster went and DJ more wind than Dak went right before. So I was going to double up on the deck. Amari. Cooper thing to league than it didn't work out for me Kubrick winter afterwards and I took Russell Wilson the Andrea Swift went eighth in the fifth round in Zach. Decay metcalf which hurt me beyond belief really wanted to get him. Then cam acres went in the top six round. Tyler. Lockett. Went Second. Korla sudden went stefan digs. And then. Which who drafted by the way? So. I took it like this, right? If, we look between the first five rounds here the receivers that went. Michael. Thomas was the first receiver off the Board Julio Jones the second. Right it's going well, things make sense. And then devante Adams the next wide receiver off the list who was knife in the second round and Tyreek Hill. Then, we saw Chris Godwin VJ. Alan. Robinson. And Kenny Golladay go. then. I took. Amari Cooper. So. In reality, I took a top ten fantasy wide receiver in the fourth round. Then Dj's shark went a Brown Carbon Ridley, tournament? Lauren. then. We had Mike Evans Juju DJ more. Kubrick Cup. then. Decay. So, decay was a guy I gonNA target. I really wanted him on my team and I figured I could get away with drafting Russell Wilson. And Getting de que later on because I didn't think people are really sitting on him like that. But unfortunately, I probably should have went decay I and I could have got Russell Wilson later like I just have a feeling that could have gotten later. Because I don't think people really studying to get quarterbacks after the first two went. and. Of course I got the shortage stick their. So getting defined digs because I said why not he's an option on that team running backs situation isn't the best. So I'm not even worried about that fantasy and him and John Brown are going to just tear top our defenses and digs has some of the most skilled. He's one of the most skilled wide receivers in the league. They that's unquestionable. after that was Mark Ingram fifth in around six then jared Jordan Howard. Who is on my no fly list. Kyle Murray or Murray. Excuse me when seven. Kareem Hunt went eighth jk Dobbins and then Rahim Mustard so Out of all of that, it was a pretty fairly where may draft around seven got weird because we'll We'll let twin temp and that was just then after that he dropped his his defense. So there is. A Sarah and seven and eight was weird. The start to finish and the start. So so a lot of that Ronald Jones winning a brown, which was pretty interesting because I just didn't I didn't figure that people will do got Jarvis Landry and the eighth. That was really all that went down I got Jerry Cook. So I got the guy who has targeting again. And in round ten got Leonard for net. So I just wanted to finish that out because I wanted to say that Leonard Fournette went. After. Ronald Jones and I just don't think I don't care what happens in the first few weeks. Leonard Fournette is going to be the guy they're like it's just tough stuff ronald. And is going to be a sad day for him. But that's just kind of where it's at. Now we're GONNA use. The report card system because I'm curious to see what? Yahoo fantasy things I did via the draft and I think it'd be interesting to go ahead and see what they tell me. So I ended up being the second highest rated draft ranking among the ten people. Somebody got an a minus. I'll look at their report card later on but. I gotta be a second if out of ten I thought I had a really good draft so. They said fueled by a slew of steals. My teams called House breeze. You know fantasy names favorite team makes sense has a chance to win this leak so. My top three picks it I made of course, was Clyde Edwards Josh Jacobs Mouth Sanders in the draft summary says although they were stuck with the number seven. Overall selection, House, breezed in Flinch building a roster capable of dominating any team in the League house breeze are predicted to finish with a record of nine and four placing them second in the league. Best Pick was Leonard. Fournette pick so. A nice late round bargain into the net with the fourth pick in the tenth round about five rounds later than his average draft position at fifty four and after season in which he rushworth thousand one, hundred, fifty, two yards, three touchdowns and recorded seventy six catches for five hundred, twenty, two yards totaling a hundred and eighty three points for net is projected to score somewhere in the hundred twenty-three fantasy points range with the buccaneers and that makes him valuable as the fourth running back for the squad. And then I went on a limb they said either something your opponent doesn't or you got a bit carried away with the choice of digs at number fifty, four about eighteen slots earlier than average ADP projected score hundred fifty. When fantasy points this season with the bills in, he'll attempt to match last year we had sixty three catches for thousand one, hundred, thirty yards and six touchdowns to post one hundred and forty nine fantasy points. And he'll slot in as the number five why receiver from my team according to projections so my draft notes are that I'm in for a rude awakening in week ten apparently when I have three players on biases quieted words, Amari Cooper. Michael Gallup, and perhaps getting leveling the playing field that my week ten opponent will also be tackling their worst by week before players on the sideline. So you know I'm going to be okay sounds like it and then based on projections I have one of the hardest schedules early in the season and with a first-half string scheduled ranked second, most difficult and even so for the full season, should expect a fairly balanced schedule rated as the fifth. and. Whatever the plan going into the draft surely didn't involve collecting such a small group of Stars as. I put together a backloaded squad in the top players from each position combined rejected score. The second fewest points in the League in the rest of the roster fortunately is expected to make up for it and put up a point total that would rank third so. You know despite the offensive openings at quarterback wide receiver in tied in in the third round I chose Mild Sanders at number twenty seven filling out the running back a tight end wide receiver flex position at the expense of a position of greater importance and. You know a second squad to fill the FLEX position. So according to my by weak points lost. It looks like I have a pretty big one in week six week ten is the second highest and so on. So forth. and. They have a whole bunch of charts here on Yahoo this is what makes it so interesting so Apparently, the average points are average projected points for all the players at. The versus the average productive points. Of all players at that position in the League apparently to my team. So I quarterback, I have a pretty high average compared to the rest of the league and running back up. It's light advantage wide receiver have the slightest advantage I have a really low advantage tied in. And then. I have a low imagine kicker in defense of a slight advantage so This is a pretty good grading system. Honestly, this is the first time. I really took a deep dive into how they do the draft results and the draft grade and things like that. So. Honestly. Well done. I like this. So let's take a look at what my team fully at capacity looks like via the roster, right? So I. Have. Russell Wilson. Amari. Cooper defined digs. clydes lehrer. Josh Jacobs Jared. Cook. Mile Sanders. Michael Gallup so I ended up getting to cowboys wide receivers. Jarvis Landry Leonard. Fournette who? At some point might even end up in the starting lineup who knows. Brandin Cooks Marlin Mac deebo Samuel. COMMUN- fairburn. And then the buffalo defense so. I really think I cleaned house here. Man Can't lie I think my wide receivers are the some of the weaker links in defensively. But honestly, I don't think that week per se I think the depot Samuel Pick looks a little bit bad in retrospect I took him near the way way late backgrounds with draft I have Jarvis Landry because I believe that. You know him and Odell Beckham will end up. Really fighting for who will get the most catches out of that offense Michael Gallup because I believe the cowboys offense is going to be amazing this year and I think getting any of those guys will be a plus and it doesn't hurt to have somebody who will be nice trade bait later on down the season and I believe that, of course Leonard he got there and he just felt so much I said, you know I might will get him. Brandin. Cooks was to get just in case things went awry like injury or something or defined digs wasn't that great so Is, defined digs doesn't get it done. I have some replacements I do have a tough week for week six as. You Know Russell Wilson Josh Jacobs and Jerry Cook are on the bench and I do not have a solid. Backup tight in I don't WanNa drop him. So He's GonNa be interesting decisions that have to be made sooner rather than later about that But I thing well rounded draft to well rounded drafts so far of course, I'll keep you guys updated on how might we goes and how things happen and what potentially is going to be. Who is? Potentially is going to ruin me for the remainder of the year because it always tends to find a way of doing that but. Here's to say. that. Fantasy goes well. I hope fantasy goes about as well always has for me, which means I'll make playoffs. That's the first initial hurdle is that we have to make the playoffs here because if we don't would are we doing right if we don't make the playoffs. Who Are we? What are we? Who can we become who knows but? That's typically where I'm going to Tehran going on philosophically. I think my draft strategy was pretty good. I did not go in with a wide receiver early or running back heavy draft. I was just looking at. Drafting, the best available player for the value that they have at least for the first six rows, and then after that, we kind of decided to make do with what we had I think your first six or seven rounds really tell you this landscape of where everybody is. As teams and it is going to be really interesting to see where this league takes on ahead of its own like a place of steam because. I really do believe that according to these draft. Who does a really good job when it comes to this draft results stuff and? Dr Gray's draft analysis is all cool. It's all well and good, but at the same time. You know you never know until players get out there and play, and that's what we have to talk about coming up in the next segment. So last segment of the day, we're going to be talking about the preview of the NFL. Thursday night game. First game of the season.

Can you feel it tasted in the hair? Football is around the corner and we're like touching the edge of the corner right now Thursday. Night we get the Texans and we get the reigning Super Bowl champions. The Kansas City chiefs. What are we going to see? Hopefully good football because last Saturday. Football was not the best. It was great to have it but it was not the best and I'm looking forward to seeing some. Really really good football being on display, and that is something that I think will happen but I also think their defense is going to be a struggle across the board at any stretch. Any level of play defense is going to be very tough for everybody across the board because typically it kind of is for most part unless you're playing bad teams I think defense is always a tough one to go and I'm not just saying that because I'm a saints fan and typically week one for the saints defense is always a punt but is in it's always hard for everybody and I think it's going to be very difficult for the chiefs even though I did drop their defense in fantasy league right so this goes against everything that I would want to happen. But it's very tough to see the chiefs defense being super stout against a Texan team that has a lot of things going for it so. Let's look at the Houston Texans offensive potential here for week one. Against The. Kansas City chiefs. Right that's what we WANNA see. That's what we need. So looking out their roster right now why receivers? So We have Kenny stills we have will fuller. We. Kiki. T. We have. Brandin cooks here new face Randall Cobb a new face have a lot of guys, and then the Andre Carter is also active. They're tied in coghill warring active than Darren fells. WHO's guy people were high on. During active or Atkins as well. So running backs, of course, we know David Johnson and Johnson going to be the two guys carrying the ball around for most of the time. and. We know about the Shawn Watson so I. Think the Shawn Watson always likes to play against the Kansas City chiefs because it gives him an opportunity to put his status on display of being one of the better young quarterbacks of our generation and of the new generation of quarterbacks. During the football he is known as a magician. He is known as Mr Clutch some people like to call him the Michael Jordan football will see he has to win things I, but we know that Laremy Tunsil was there who's a new guy? He's going to help aid in protecting him. We'll see just how much the offensive line has improved or not improved since of last year, but just on Watson was basically running around with with. Like a chicken head cut off in the pocket sometimes and he was trying to make stuff with the legs work. It didn't work all the time. And the biggest thing for the Shawn Watson as a player, not just for fantasy purposes but he has to be more consistent. There'd be weeks for Shawn Watson we're like, okay. Wow, this is who he is and then some weeks were kind of scratching their heads were what happened there and The Texans are weird team general sometimes, it really hot. Sometimes, we really cold and streaky teams can be weird and I wouldn't trust the streaky team in most cases midseason but at the start with someone like the Shawn Watson, I think the Shawn Watson likes the spotlight and I think he's a guy who likes to show out and having opportunity to show out against the cheese is going to be the best opportunity has to showcase just who uses the player and what he is. Basically earned because he just got the contract extension and he said to make more money later on the line, he did a nice job without him and his agent does really tag teamed the mess contract for sure so. Who Do I think has really good fantasy potential I think brandin cooks is looking like he's going to have a good week this week because I think that the Kansas City chiefs. Are. A team that of struggles when it comes to guarding guys who are deep threats. And, of course, we saw that the chiefs kinda struggled over regular season running back death of people who can really get there and run the ball, but they also showcased. The. Some you know able to stop it when it candidate in the playoffs, the problem is. We all knew who the ball was going to. They knew that they had to do the whole. Stack the box thing against Derrick Henry and it worked to some degree because they really could not throw the ball. Very far like once they stopped that they knew basically, it was Kinda they played into the system. So the Shawn Watson. Is a better runner than Ryan, Tannehill, of course. And also I believe that there's a lot of veterans here a lot of people who know how to play the game and know how to deal with certain things like certain looks and I don't believe that the Kanye chiefs they're going to try and sack the box against David Johnson because David Johnson is much more than just you know downhill runner and I don't want to put Derrick Henry in a box and say that's all he's good at but we know what they're Henry is elite at and Derek or David Johnson is not elite downhill running, but he's really good and he's a really good pass catcher when healthy. So. This will be a good stress tests to see what David Johnson's potential is and the Texans offense will see just how bill O'Brien able to utilize the new keys and the new pieces to his collection here of really standout players and it'll be a good stress test for everybody involved in the Texans and it will be a big win if they can come out on top now is going to be very tough, right? It's not going to be an easy ask. Because they're going up against the reigning champions. Now, I believe that there will be some sort of a super bowl low and a really good one too. And I don't know. Why that is maybe it's just because this. been a bit weird but at the same time that can also bode well for them because often the season's been weird. So it's not the typical. You Know Super Bowl winning obscene where you party you have fun you don't you're Kinda laxed and you did you did so much to get there and win to where things kind of feel like well, we have to get back and do it again and we have to. figure out how to play at that level again, I don't think that. There's GonNa be two extremes either is not going to exist because of Kobe nineteen or is going to exist even harsher because of covid nineteen and I, think covid nineteen is going to affect a lot of teams in a negative way and I don't think the chiefs chiefs in particular are. Immune from that. But. Let's just remind ourselves who the chiefs are. The chiefs have the best quarterback in the national football. League in Patrick Mahomes Super Bowl, MVP, and I have no reason to doubt him of being a guy who is going to light it up. This first week the Texans defense is wishy washy. The Texans defense at started week one last year gave up a lot of points to the New Orleans Saints. Not to say that. New Orleans Saints about offense we know they're top top tier offense but so are achieves and the chiefs have a plethora of weapons to spread the ball around so. tyreek. Hill. Travis Kelsey. McColl Hartman. Right then they have Sammy Watkins, Clyde Ariza Layer. Right. They have a lot of weapons that they can spread around and figure some things out and keep people guessing. and. You know Patrick Mahomes can do stuff with his legs to any read is going to be in his absolute mind boggling bag this week. Trying to figure out how to dissect this Texans defense. And not to drop you know thirty plus on them, and that's not for me to disrespect the texts defense I think that. Their offense over there in Casey is. Believable. It's actually unreal. was their offense is and how it was able to be obtained in the first place and. You can't really there's nobody in the NFL. WHO has a proper way of dealing with tyreek Hill? There's nobody in the NFL that has a proper way to handle Travis Kelsey at his size and speed in his ability to catch and run routes. There wasn't a lot of guys deal with cream hunt when he was there wasn't a lot of guys do with Damian Williams when he was there surrounded those guys. So I have to believe there's not a lot of guys that are going to be able to deal with Clyde Evers Layer. If they let him loose and let them lose early and we've seen how Andy Reid Alexa get his running backs involved very early on in the game week ones that we've seen from Kansas City. have been some of the more entertaining football spectacle. We've seen for running backs in quite some time that come off of really great seasons. We saw cream hunt week when I remember the big hype everybody got him and then he imploded on the scene. And had really really great success. Right and this was the Alex Smith. Version. Then of course, we got Patrick Mahomes. So then they still had cream hunt and had Damian Williams to Damian Williams. When he got his turn, he really got it going. Quick fast in a hurry that got him involved. Early and often in the offense and that matters. So people are using the precedent that's been set by any read and the chiefs to make the assumption that Clyde ever the layer is going to have if antastic week one and I look forward to seeing it as I have him on my team and it would be very disappointing if it's kind of predestine I hope not but I think that. Due due to being surrounded by all these weapons. There is no question that glide going to be great. There's no question that quite is not going to eat because at the end of the day, people eat with less who are less talented. People have good fences season's around less talented squads all the time. Clyde. Is One of the top running back selected. Lynn last draft like it wasn't like he was reached on, right it's not like Oh, is he talented enough like this is not about his talent we understand what capable of now he might have been a little bit overblown because lsu season but everybody kinda was everybody's kind of inflated of that Miracle Season Right we understand this but at the same time he is so talented. And? It just makes sense is the perfect fit? You know Patrick Mahomes wanted him to be drafted and so it shall happen it did happen for them so. I think Clyde Edwards is due for a nice day. Let's just keep it at that I. Think he's due for a Nice Day thing travelers. Kelsey. Will Be Fine I. Think tyreek Hill is all dependent on if he can get in the end zone. and. If he doesn't if you play. P. P R. I don't know how many cats are hills going to get because it's going to be such a big burden on people's defense. So they're going to have to make sure that they have somebody back just in case it gets order topped with them but also think that Patrick mahomes might be like you know what? I don't want a super bowl hangover. I want to go get the next one right now and he might just start throwing the top off of people man so. It really can go either way. and. I think halftime whatever happens in the first half is going to tell you a lot about this game and if you play daily fantasy or you do those fantasy games where you bet in the first half or second half full games like I do sometimes I'm looking at this one line whereas. Shawn Watson One, hundred, sixty, nine yards in the first half over under and I believe that patch mahomes is around one eighty or something like that and. I think I might take the under on Patrick Mahomes I might take the over on Shawn Watson, but also might flip it. It's really they really could go either way at this point I have no have no inside. Info. On that I have no psychic ability to see the future of the lines and pick the right decisions right? Like I don't know anything about that. But what I do know is that both of those guys can let it up at any given. Sunday. If they choose to and I think week one. You know special. Thursday night everybody is going to be tuned in is going to be probably the biggest rating boost that any network has had in the last six months is going to be crazy. It's going to be bananas everybody on twitter is GonNa. Freak out is GONNA be takes Galore. Is, GonNa be awesome and Fan way limited fans or no fans going to be cool and considering how college looked on Saturday I. Think the the broadcast is just going to be just fine. We're GONNA feel right at home and it's going to be awesome. Now is going to be weird during the end zone cameras because there won't be any fans but I. think it will be fine. I think the League is going to do a good job and we got hope that things stay stay good man we know. Baseball has been surviving even though they started off rocky. So we just got to hope that this is going to be a successful season. So what that said GMC family we are going to end the park has off right there. Hopefully, everybody's done drafting if you are. Not, drafting get on it because you've got basically one day left is really not much left to wait for.
