"Up inside of me because yesterday i saw i saw some folks i really like in the media is saying juju the. Nfl's using you you've got to use it and if that wasn't enough i then saw some folks being like guys. Were being too hard on. Dwayne haskins too hard on dwayne haskins. He's played first career. He played for the playoffs. He's mass listeners. I join like what are you talking about guys. The at one point in time media was anti athlete. It was if we're being honest. Thirty nakedly racist the way athletes were talked about. It was so many appeals to authority and teams it was gross but in some corners. We've gone so far in the other direction that no matter what anybody does. It's defend it. Guess what juju. In the last two years you have one hundred yard receiving game and three less than ten yard receiving games since ab left. You have fewer receiving yards. Then let me check danny amendola and nine more receiving yards than hunter renfrow this year. You're looking up in the receiving yards standings to russell gauge. It ain't good enough to do this. And it is your team and a good spot and reminds me this. Aren't that good then look really good. Well what a dances are actually good. I liked dances. You know.

"That kept him out. You know for a couple of games previously He did not return in isaiah. Oliver went out in the second. Half with cramping. I do not recall. He finished his game. I don't think he did as we saw some guys like tyler hall finishing out in the corner position so those are the injuries that happen during the game. Obviously keep your eyes at the Com for updates on these guys as we go into the next game next week. Evan tell us what the falcons offense did today because this felt like a drastic improvement for what we got last week ya they came out looking hot to matt. Ryan had forty nine attempts by. He completed thirty four them for three hundred fifty six yards three touchdowns passer rating of one. Ten point six As we've seen in the past the run game was abysmal. Nothing really going ito smith. I guess you could say lend a day with six carries for twenty four yards. He also had two receptions for nine yards talk girly literally a nonfactor had one carry for negative one yards But he did have a nice catch early on But he totaled two receptions for fifteen yards. And i'm brian hill. Had five carries for negative two yards so if gurley and hill just didn't get off the bus they would have had more rushing yards than they did today. That's not not great in receiving day though Calvin ridley continues to shine when julio's out to Ten receptions on fourteen targets hundred sixty three yards and a touchdown along of thirty three russell engaged looked really good. He attend tar targets. Five of them for sixteen yards and a touchdown along with twenty seven. Keith smith fullback. Cat randomly handsome targets. He had three catches for thirty two yards. Hating hearst finally had handling. I guess you could clear you know. Say say bounce back game because in the past couple of weeks he's had like one one cat here and there. But he had four receptions for twenty one yards a touchdown In that pretty much does it look. We'll to catch for fourteen yards. You know some of that. Kind of mixed in. But calvin ridley just exploded. I mean ten receptions hundred sixty three yards and a touchdown they do the falcons. If they're doing one thing right it's going from Number one receiver the number one receiver. Roddy white julio jones to now calvin ridley because when julio's applied ridley as pretty much stepped up every time. So yeah that's i mean. You can't a over emphasized how amazing it is to go from true number one receiver to true roy receiver to true number one receiver. That is actually rare. In the falcons of nailed it with the some of their wide receiver picks over the years including russell gauge was the sixth round pick in has turned into a very very effective Number three wide receiver and as you mentioned had a really solid date. The office again today to i will say i think matt ryan looked much sharper. He did have some misthrows in this game But i felt like the story of the offense was far more about protection than the second half I think ryan was sacked three times second half in on key downs And it was about the defense really more than the offense did. They put up twenty seven points. They probably could've put up a few more potentially at the end of the game but ultimately when you give up thirty one points in a single half. I don't think you can look to the offense in say that it's all on their shoulders. Well and what's also a problem is there's zero run game when people want bash matt ryan especially towards the end here as we near toward the end of the season people are talking more about what they should pick in the draft Matt ryan has zero run game. I mean six year leading rusher six carries for twenty four yards. Matt ryan alone had sixteen yards on a carry. He had the longest rush of the day. Like you can't blame him for that. And one defense is no. You can't run the ball. They noted play in the past. And that's pretty much. What about today. Ryen past forty nine times. Forty nine times So this is a. I don't know what you can do other than just blow up the offense in. Try to start over again on that side of the ball so You know that's it's a really have zero patients for people saying this on ryan win Two of your running backs as you mentioned literally registered negative rushing yards for the game knob on the play for the entire game Between gurley and hill six carries for negative three yards. I mean come on holy crap and by the way either. Smith six carries twenty four yards. Four point -o average again just emphasizing. Why in the world is either smith not the starter. At this point. He is the only running back has been consistently effective and was even the only one that was effective in pass blocking todd. Gurley missed out big on one of the sax where it should have been him on the blitz pickup and they completely whiffed on it so in my mind though smith has earned the right to get a solid look next year at least as part of a rotation and he honestly should be starting for the last. Two games for falcons in this season But with this coaching staff who knows how the hamlet asks for the buccaneers on defense. Obviously they didn't have any interceptions. All three sacks came from devon white who also had ten ten tackles for the day four for loss Absolutely brutal when you have one player. That is just piling up. The saks like that. It tells you something was missed. By the falcons including a blitz pickups from or running backs the through girly under the bus. And actually keith. Smith missed one as well. That set up another devon white sack late in the game otherwise carlton davis was second on the team with seven tackles a couple of guys with four and three down the list in honestly the the bucks defense on will think was necessarily dominant. I feel like the falcons offense sort of In the second half missed some opportunities they passes that were just a a hair too long or drops a or in some cases cowardly trying to make a play instead of running north south in failing to get conversions. It was just a handful of things. I don't think the bucks necessarily were dominant on the defensive side. In the second half they just they ran into a falcons team that just collapsed itself and honestly ear to be fair..

"Dollars. Do you still like a breeze. Thomas stack in the setup. I do like breeze. Stacks with thomas. I also like breeze. Stacks with camera. I think that the two of those gentlemen are going to log about twenty targets between them this week one might get eight. Might get twelve. But i think that they're going to soak up a lot of the usage from drew brees again. The only problem with drew brees the only dangerous that he may get yanked inside the ten when they go to. Gadget tastes them hill. And it might cost a touchdown. Either a rushing touchdown for alvin kamara or it might cost us a passing touchdown that turns into a taste hill running touchdown if they go to that gadget package that they go to inside the five minutes ten sometimes so there is danger with a breeze stack but again the upside here is tremendous the gonna have to score touchdowns not field goals. And i think that we're gonna see drew. Brees challenge for the three hundred yard. Bonus gonna see a lot of targets. Funneled to kamera and to michael thomas fifty nine hundred dollars just across the board at any quarterback any quarterback with michael thomas for fifty nine hundred dollars understanding that you know there's it's been an up and down year for that that passing game but you gotta love that opportunity i am. I do wanna make sure. We say. Seventy two hundred dollars from michael thomas value. We still like him this week. Especially more now with brees under center. We really quickly wanna mention. Michael gallup still thirty five hundred dollars taking on san francisco but the usage that he has the looks that he has been getting. Mike has been been enough to make it worthwhile. Their calvin ridley an russell gauge now. That julio jones has been ruled out calvin ridley eighty two hundred dollars. Russell gauge forty seven hundred dollars. You like this this price point for russell gauge mike. I do yeah. He's had a target share eat in the vicinity of twenty percent the past few weeks. Without julio julio using them and also made a kind of a shift he's playing outside now right nipple brandon in the slot. He's playing outside. I don't think i. I haven't really heard that discuss. But they made that adjustment that's generally gonna lead to. It's not always great but it allows you to score touchdowns get down the field more and more plays and we've seen that pay off for him a couple of weeks to some extent so really engaged and you know if you wanna if you wanna take that shot on matt ryan again. No one's gonna be online so if you're an a. T. gp and you want to a curveball. Here playing against the bucks who have not stop the pass as well as of late as he did earlier in the season you can maybe do something with with gauge alien ryan here that i like that Two more wide receivers wanna talk about brandin cooks. We mentioned Destroying watson a little bit earlier. Six thousand dollars for cooks taking on the colts and robert woods sixty eight hundred dollars taking on the jets. Obviously we always on triple stack. Yeah he's like always on because he's always underpriced for everything that we do here a couple of plays that we want to talk about greg ward junior and cam sims both guys that are basically under thirty five hundred dollars. Three thousand for for greg ward thirty three hundred for cam sims. Is there one that you like more than the other clay Just fits in there. I probably ward though. I would say feel better about him because i let me ask you a question. Who is the number one receiver right now. Dallas got it. yeah right. I mean he's not serve but even but even who is our number one wide receiver. It's it's word or maybe make a case for jalen regular. Maybe award has really been the guy soaking up the most targets at least most consistently at least at the highest floor. He's been he's been hanging around that twenty percent target area so yeah lower volume passing game now of course with their but if he's going to throw a to ward seven times at three k i mean that's that's money in the bank for sure. Yeah seven targets for three k. The the upside there is absolutely what exactly and you don't need a lot. Upside to pay off are talking about a couple of tight. Ends here and mike. I feel like we're going to have to have a conversation because you have now stolen. Call commit from al. Three thousand dollars taken on minnesota. There's just thievery all over the place here in this podcast but three k. Like a great basement price for a bears tight end. That could potentially some good work here against minnesota say we stole him like we were ahead of the game on this podcast with. Yes about him from al. I'm just trying to make you guys fight with each other and not that we still. Yeah so anyway. I do still like him nonetheless. He still in the three k which is insanely cheap playing at minnesota this week. He's the number. Nineteen priced tight end in this. The healing went up one hundred bucks from last week which doesn't make a lot of sense to me. He's five k. Less than travis kelsey. Well think about what you can do with five k where you can go from like a james white to a henry is roughly the gap that you can do. So think about that comment in his first eleven games had fourteen targets. He has that in his past two games now. He is seven in both of those games..

"To the funnel defense themselves. The atlanta falcons the forty nine and half point overrun and the tampa. Bay buccaneers are favored by six. In this game. So tom brady. I think he's very very good. Play this week and last week. He he didn't necessarily disappoint. You didn't have to do all that much. Because the vikings couldn't keep up you only had fifteen completions and he scored fifteen fantasy points. That's not that great. Hit the deep. Pass a scotty. Miller and i have tom brady as my sixth ranked quarterback this week and i feel pretty comfortable about it like i said going into this game. Atlanta is a funnel defense. They can stop the run in stopping the run really well recently but they can throw the ball and a lot of weapons tampa bay and atlanta. Can't stop it could. They haven't been able to stop it all season so i like tom brady. I like a lot of his weapons up. We're gonna go over here matt ryan. I can't feel that great about tampa bay has given up. A lot of yards played a lot of man coverage and tyreek hill had enough had enough production against that secondary to sustain. An entire game is worth for an entire wide receiving crew. Let alone just himself. But my ryan struggling. If you had that ryan you're probably not in your fantasy playoffs right now. It ten fantasy points last week. It has not been good. Ronald jones is on the covid. Nineteen list anti broker pinkie. So looks like we're going to see a lot. More leonard fournette. I don't feel great about it against this defense. I really don't show mccoy's also gonna eat into that. You might see a little keyshawn vaughn. I don't really like any other running backs in his game. Fun to be real tampa. Bay's also really really good run. Defense thinks it's going to be a lot more throwing. And that's why. I really like calvin ridley. Mike evans chris godwin and even antonio brown. I think antonio brown can kind of come out and have a pretty saw game two. We had five targets last week. Not grape fifteen completions. He call all five of those targets so we had a third of tom. Brady's completions so. I kind of thinking tonio brown can be sneaky as a wide receiver three in this game. I think if you have godwin or evans you should be starting them for sure. Calvin releases smash. I don't think julio jones is going to play in this game so that opens up russell gauge now. Russell gauge has kind of been this player. Where every time. Julio jones is out the call yeah wanna play russell gaijin his three wide receiver league and then he always ends up disappointing the last week. He had seven targets. Call five of them for eighty two yards. And he also threw a touchdown pass. But i don't necessarily think that's sustainable. Obviously but i think he's somebody to consider. I'd rather play antonio brown over russell gauge found going to be real. But i think somebody that you can definitely think about in a deeper type league. I think rob gronkowski is somebody that you should be playing for. Sure hayden hearst. Not as much. He had three targets last week. Call one of them for seven. Yards is just not consistent enough. Where hayden her. And you don't want to bang on that with his passing attack without julio jones because his passing attack without julio was just absolutely not effective then we have washington hosting the seattle seahawks and the seattle seahawks are five and a half point favorites. The over under is not great. It's a forty four point over under and the quarterback is still up in the air for the washington football team whether it be alex smith or dwayne haskins. You're not playing either. But i do believe that a haskins might be better for terry maclaurin and alex smith might be better for jd mckissic. Because it doesn't seem like antonio gibson won't be playing in this football game but russell wilson start starting him on the road. One o'clock does not matter chris carson. Somebody that you're gonna start but again he's been dealing with injuries. He's limited in like every practice because of that mid foot sprain but when he gets on the field he just runs so damn hard. he's getting digit carries and he's being used as receiver. He has eleven targets. The last two games. So i think you have to start chris carson at this point probably still in the playoffs if you have chris carson. Not obviously that's not universal. But he's a good enough player and he has tanked your team through these last two weeks. Jd mckissic is a player that you could definitely start especially full point. Pbr leagues now last week. Four targets member. Alex smith left the game twain. Haskins came in but washington had a big lead because their defense just went off in that game but the week before he had ten targets and it could get back to that seattle's able to get a lead on this washington defense which is plausible. The washington defense is definitely respectable unit but seattle's also good offense struggled against the giants. But that happens from time to time patrick. Graham had a great game plan. And i don't think seattle going to be overlooking any teams like they may have done against the new york giants so jd. Mckissic chris carson. Both guys that intrigued me for sure peyton barber amok gonna quite go there. I know he's getting workload without antonio gibson i know. He had double digit carries last week sauce and targets. But you don't want to bank on that in a fantasy playoffs that's for wide receivers metairie maclaurin. Kind of scared scares me to be honest. But you're gonna roll with terry mclaren on the season. Seattle gives up the most fantasy points to the wide receiver position but through the last couple of weeks. They've actually been the best against the wide receiver position right with the new york giants to be honest because the giants didn't really have to do all that much against them. Two weeks ago court threw for one hundred yards so the fantasy production has been down again. That's contextual. i would say but it still scares me because you have got the blind dwayne haskins. Who's not that great term. Corn hasn't really had great fantasy game in a little bit last two weeks. He's been pretty bad. Had twelve parts as caught four of them against dallas on thanksgiving yet a good game. Sixteen fancy points four point. Pr thirteen week before that. Eighteen the week before that you hope you get back to that. And i think dwayne haskins can make terry maclaurin a good. Fantasy are the key targets him a lot. We saw him have seventeen targets in the first two weeks. And then at cleveland he had a. And then you have fourteen against baltimore. And that week where terry maclaurin at twenty four p p points. But it just hasn't happened the last couple of weeks so hopefully they can get on the same page. Obviously haskins came in mid week last week. Wasn't there for that. Pips pittsburgh game when the steelers laid an egg against the washington football team. But i think if you have a corner you're going to start him in these three receiver leagues to receive relief..

"I told you before the break, Let's find out how they did it. Here's Jeff Zell. Well, rich Falcons upset Nothing on the Panthers. We have five minutes going first quarter. Todd Gurley at 35 Yard Touchdown cap. They play 92 yards for minutes 36 2nd drive. Girling with three carriers and 54 yards on that possession. While that line was 46 for 26 yards, interestingly and ducks with Julia Jones out of Ryan, six targets went to Calvin Ridley or Russell Gage for Carolina. Corning cornerback Dante Jackson is questionable with a toe injury. Teddy Bridgewater right now five of 74 50 yards, a couple of completions of 10, plus one for 12. Robbie Anderson won't pretend to deejay bore and Mike Davis to carries 11 yards and two catches 20 yards Once again, Falcons seven Pant, There's nothing for 44 left in the first quarter. Thank you. Jim was going to Jeff Hathorn and Heinz Field. A quiet start between the Eagles and unbeaten Steelers. Jeff? Yeah, I guess they haven't found out here that this is a scoring league. Now the Steelers and Eagles so far of combined for two first downs. Both by the Steelers. And for the first time the Steelers are an eagle's territory. Trying to get a drive going something going. We've already seen sacks from both sides. TJ Watch turned 26 today and got attack on the first drive. As Ben Roethlisberger was attacked on the Steelers first possession. No score early on, both offense is struggling or both defense is playing well, Everyone a look at it. 5 12 to play in the first quarter here at Heinz Field, All right, so a very quiet start there. Meanwhile, in Baltimore, we do have some points. The Ravens have the lead early, looking to add to it as their since 90 territory. Here's Craig Heist and right now, the Ravens do have three nothing lead. We've got six or seven to play here in the first quarter than got the points is a result of Justin Tucker 46 yard Field goal in the inn. Suing drive by the Bengals. They've got it all down to the Ravens 37 but then wound up with both and three on the job, Bro. Pass went incomplete, but on the day two or five or 40 yards, Mark Jackson, two of four For 23 yards, But right now the Ravens driving they have the ball of the Bengal 40, and they are up three. Nothing. Alright. Thank you very much. Craig Heist in Baltimore. So Justin Tucker, Mr Automatic with a field goal today, and they're in front by a score of three to nothing as if it couldn't get any worse for the old four jets. A guywho played collegiately in their own backyard, doing the damage early on for the Cardinals. Is Mike Mancuso. Okay, Act. We are at the 5.5 minute mark of the first quarter seven. Nothing. Cardinals and you mentioned Chase Edmunds 29 Yard run for a touchdown in a big game last year against the Giants at MetLife Stadium when he scored three times 89 Yard Drive engineered by Kyla Murray, a couple of Big plays. Hey, had a quarterback drew off 16 yards and then after the quarterback draw, 21 Yard passed Kristin Kirk on that set them up in Jets territory on a third and one chase. Edmund, then ran 29 yards. For the touchdown. The Jets currently on their third possession of the afternoon, looking at a third and seven on their own 27 yard line behind quarterback Joe Flacco throws an incomplete pass We have seen Levian del involved is just trying to get him into the offense. He has four carries for 15 yards. Right now, Joe Flacco. Just missing on that passenger jets will now be hunting for the third time. Today. We are just trailing seven to nothing here late in the first quarter Rich, all right, Chase Edmunds of Fordham University with the lone touchdown on the day so far for the Cardinals, who leads by a score of seven. Nothing. We have some points on the board. In Kansas City as we check in with Christian better. Pirates. Which three nothing. Okay. Excuse me. I'm not not Ella. No. It's Las Vegas. The Rangers have a three Nothing lead over. The chief 6 37 left here in the first quarter. They lied on a Daniel Carlson 38 yard field goal, capping a 75 yard. 11 play driving 5 57 off the clock. They had a big play 46 yard. Catch right, Henry rugs there. Carter. Henry runs a 46 year old cats under the Kansas City 29 yard line, and a few third down plays, but penalties knocked him back. So they made their way to the 29. But I could only only get to the 20 had to settle for a Daniel Carlson 38 yard field goal. Meanwhile, Kansas City on their first possession, had a 58 yard What looked to be a 58 yard touchdown pass, but that was called back by offensive. Holding would've been Tyree killed, 58 yard touchdown, but that was called back right now, with just six minutes left here in the first quarter, she's trailing the Raiders three Nothing All right, So the Raiders in front of the chief's early is the chief's it for no to start the season. The Texans just the opposite Owen for with a new coach in Romeo Cornell, taking over for Bill O'Brien. In the interim, they're taking on the Jaguars a quiet start so far and use, Let's get more from out of this plane. We're nearing the end of the first quarter. Texans and Jaguars are scoreless. Texans are on the move. They just picked up a third and short, so they have the ball just into JAG territory. Shawn Watson has put it in the air quite a bit in the early going, and we've seen the Texans get braving, cooked more involved in the offense. He did not have a catch last week against Minnesota only has 10 all season. But the very first play the Texans ran today with a deep all the cooks who caught it for 36 yard. He has a second catch in this game as well, Not much offense for the JAG. James Robinson off to a nice start. Garden gardener Mint you just to a 14 for 14 yards under two minutes to play in the first quarter texting, then Jagger scoreless, Alright. The ramp scored first in Washington, but Kyle Allen has rally the Washington football team. Let's get more from Chris Russell. Indeed. Kyle Alan is kind of known for his mobility. Certainly compared to Dwayne Haskins. He ran a 47 for me in Thie combine and his official workout. So that was part of the reason I think I run. Rivera made the move. After just four games, and itjust paid off form Kyle Allen with Stephanie or touchdown run, toothy Front left corner out the end zone right in front of us here. It was reviewed because he was initially mark out of bounds at about the half yard one. But the Washington football team wins the review, and it's reviewed. I should say overturned into the seven yard touchdown and with the extra point from Dustin Hopkins, they complete the set, then play..

"With Patriots game? They shut down the persona that another test on Sunday morning and you've got to be a little nervous here. I'm. A lot nervous I've been. You know as you've been going through your seventeen intros to get just perfect. Yes. That was number seventeen. I've been trying to take all the James White and REX burkhead out of my lineups, and that's me and I'm starting some jd mckissick Devante Freeman on Sunday, and that's just how scared I am. We don't know and it's possible that I don't know what type of their retake tests this morning I don't know if they're like the rapid tests and maybe we could hear something before one PM kickoff. The broncos are supposed to be flying to foxborough today. But as we saw last week, the Patriots flew on Game Day so they could push the broncos back a day it. I think the most prudent course of action is to act as if the game's not going to happen and the funny thing started funny. But ironic parts is that as of right now, Sunday morning, Cam Newton hasn't even been ruled out yet. So there's a chance if the game is played that he might play. Yeah. I. I I do think there still a couple of I I like life rafts sitting out there I guess. The only game we know for sure that's going to play after Sunday, with is that charger? Saints Game. they've not had any problems at all either of those two teams and last I looked Justin. Jackson was still not rostered an even half of leagues. Okay. Yeah. So that's that's kind of the. If you can go get him if you're super duper desperate if like the titans bills seem more likely at this point to play then the Patriots and Broncos. And the titans we know are not going to have Corey Davis Adam freezing AJ broncos, and played in a month. So Khalif Raymond is probably going to see a half dozen targets and at a big gain the last time the titans put. A Kansas, city coach has tested positive strength and conditioning coach. So. It's Sunday and they play the raiders today. What are we thinking? I I have that happen yesterday and I have heard nothing since that happens that leads me to believe that game is in question. So I think we just proceed unless we hear something else and that's the problem was doing this I should correct myself Justin Jackson available in thirty, six percent of leagues now, but still if you get him. All right he's got a lot more news. Here's Buffalo Tennessee is set for Tuesday and looking looking better. In terms of that game being played Joe, mixing expected to play. Are you starting at both at Baltimore? I you probably have to I would rather start Mike Davis. I would rather start Kareem Hunt. Now we believe where he most it's going to play, and so I would start mixing over Jerick McKinnon who we were really excited about earlier in the week. Could you start mixing? MOSTER. I would start mixing over both I think I would actually start Mckinnon over most you're still they're both right in that low in number two ranch Julio. Jones is going to be a game time decision. How does his status affect? Matt Ryan Russell Gauge. Calvin Ridley Zacchaeus etc. The thing is with the receivers Pacific women zacchaeus would just disappear from being a possible flex Julio Played Ridley engage I think they're efficiency is helped enough by his presence that the lot any loss in volume would be made up for I. Liked them just about the same you're starting calvin relief regardless engages a fine number three. Matt Ryan I would be slightly more interested in, but he'd remain in that low in number one quarterback range Michael Thomas is questionable and as of Sunday morning right now are you putting Michael Thomas in your lineup? He has a Monday night game. I yeah. I. Had that choice in a lot of leagues and in most of those leagues, he's in a flex spot right now because I have a chargers running back that I can put in for him. have one league, right? Don't have that choice and I just like. I don't really have anybody that I feel even it's not like with James Whitewater and binging for JD mckissick. I'm mostly just GONNA. Probably, Roll Thomas out there and hope so you wouldn't start like Darius late and over him. SLAYTON's a little different story like I was saying I wouldn't start mckissick or Devante Freeman over him but I do like I like slate enough that I probably would all right real quick starts and sits Teddy Bridgewater or Matt Ryan were drew brees. I'm going with touchdown teddy and he gets three day Jimmy. Garoppolo is back. Would you start them over Ryan Fitzpatrick? I would happily Kenyan drake or a waiver wire running back. I don't believe. I have any waiver wire running backs ahead of Drake about Kenyan Drake Joe Mixing Kenyan Drake or Levy on Bell? I would start Levian over drake in full PBR and I would start mixing. Yeah. Start makes it over drake do and finally who are just a couple of wide receivers you're feeling good about this week. A sneaky one I'm feeling good about his Greg Ward Dijon Jackson ruled out Alshon Jeffery ruled out they're going to be playing from behind. They don't have Dallas Either Been Greg Ward season enough targets where he has a good day. NPR. And I'm pretty pretty excited about Terry maclaurin. Matchup hasn't mattered all that much. The quarterback hasn't matter all that much. He's just a number one rider see that no one seems to want to treat like a number one. All right.

"russell gauge" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"It depends on how well their defense starts playing because their offense we you saw these stats over the past weekend. No team has has done what they've done. Being scored. 70 points, scored 39 with no turnovers and lose It just doesn't make any sense that whatever happened literally never happened. Yes, it's why Why're they? They're not losing because of their offense. And in fact, the only reason that there Somewhat viable on game day is because of their of their offense, Sir, I agree again has been atrocious. It's its last in the league or not last. It's it's almost last in the league in points and on and I don't know it's confusion or who knows what it is. They're given up too many big plays and and and not giving this team a chance to win. But if you should move on From Matt Ryan in in Atlanta. I mean, who's gonna Calvin Ridley, who's going Who's coming into his own it? Maybe. You know, he makes her past Julio Jones at some point in a couple of years as number one receiver agreed. Julio Jones is still good in the other cage is the other kid. Pretty good to Russell Gage is really good. You have got 100 yards in his 1st 1st game. I don't know how you did, like 50 or so in the second game. But he also through that it should have been touched down on the job on the wildcat, Julio Jones and Julio Jones. Rob, Look, I think this Atlanta team, you know, one of how we shifted to Atlanta, But this Atlanta team is actually clutches. Player moved is is really good. And Matt Ryan gives them a chance, at least for the next couple of years. Now, if you're going toe You know, if you identify some young kid who's you know, going to be as good and can play great right away. Maybe you would do that. But that's that's a risk that I'm not sure the Falcon should should take it. When you have that side of your team, the offense pretty much set. It just it wouldn't make sense to me. I listened, not to mention to be fair. You look at the other teams in the division, whose quarterback in the Bucks in two years Yeah. Brady, whose quarterback in the Saints in two years, not breeze, whose quarterback in the Panthers and two Years, not Bridgewater. That's right. So this not to debate myself. I was just opened up an area of conversation when you look at it that way again, a little more pragmatic and less. Um It's a less aggressive position again. I am not as enthusiastic about the Falcons making something of this season and I don't think they will bad. I don't think that they will, meaning. I think they'll have a new head coach, which they probably could have last year anyway. But but the point is If you do keep ready, Matt Ryan, and they probably will. I don't think they'll do this. I'm just saying it's something that they should maybe explore that you're right. He stays there as the other quarterbacks, you know, filled filter out. They've got one constant for a guy who's won a lot of games and throwing a lot of touchdowns. And that's not a bad way to try to distinguish yourself. Get a little separation for the rest of Ah, good, Pretty good Division. I get all that it just speaks to this is how we start with Khalil Mack stuff in a different way of business in the NFL, and we mocked or some mocked and some question to themselves and I scratch my head a little with the Khalil Mack trade yet. Here we are. Yeah. You get to see the the residue of the plan. You just gotta have a stomach. To deal with the repercussions of fallout. If you make that, Yeah, By the way, the bears in 2018 were actually pretty good. Which meant that that first round pick was the number 24 Pick with that pick the Okay. The then Oakland Now Las Vegas Raiders took Josh Jacobs. It panned out. Well, that worked out pretty well, it did we get the blast Take will hit that coming up. We wrap up a good Tuesday show Acts update Tell you what's cooking and the ridge Ackerman coming at you right now. Here is rich. Sports flash. All right, guys. The Nuggets are in the familiar position of trailing in a playoff series, once again.
"russell gauge" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"To NFL because skips cowboys are looking for their first win of the season as they host the falcons this weekend Atlanta is coming off a loss and they will put the Dallas secondary to the test after passing for four hundred, fifty yards last week we'll dallas will look to capitalize on scoring in the red zone after scoring on just to afford trips last week. Shannon. And what's the score? Will be a high scoring game the cowboys offense. I liked what I saw I like what I saw I just think that thing is they should feature a little bit more play action alphabet letter Mar let Amari and galloping and seedy start feast in one gets going I watched the Falcons game last week and they can get pressure with Grady Jarrett getting get pressure with tact McKinley but they're back in skip isn't good. They're backing is worse than the cowboys and as well. That's why was thirty, one, thirty, four for like three, fifty, four, touchdown I expect bear someone number from. Scott maybe not maybe not three fifty but I think he'll be approaching the three hundred while also rushing for one hundred yards I got a high scoring game. Skip I got thirty, one, twenty, seven cowboys. I expect I expect. To get better and better and better and better. That's the question Canada can the Falcons offensive line hold up against that pressure that's what's going to be interesting. That's what I want to see now. You know the Falcons they got firepower office. They got three guys that went over one hundred yards. They had Russell Gauge Julio and Calvin Ridley all three. So it's GonNa be interesting I think I read something where they inserted. Dig into the starting lineup. He'd night starter it couldn't have come at a better. Deal Julio. That's that's a grown man. Now, I told you Trevan in that rams game was a revelation. This is Alabama Alabama you`ll Listen, role covers Julio look I understand trae by digs you like it but they nobody dealer Julio One. Okay. Auto coverage to Julio and then try to everybody else. But you can answer this question. How much does it help to have a big brother? WHO's The star in the national? Grinch, you feel like when you step on the field I belong. It helped a lot skip for me is because my brother you know I was a wide receiver he was wired. We're talking technique we're talking okay. If the DB does this is what he's trying to do now not so sure obviously you know he like I the low brother. Well, he did it. I can I want to do everything he did and I feel I could. So I'm big I'm sure Trayvon Filet O. Steph I'm better style he field I could be in the NFL YEP definitely helped with confidence. Okay my turn. I hate to jump to. Here, but this fields do or die. As far as my expectations, they'll go okay because if you follow and to it's just hard to keep climbing out of that hole it's not impossible but I would much prefer if they could gain a little bit of early season momentum because remember they went eight last. Yes. And now they're in one. So in the backs of their minds, recesses of their minds they're starting to think. That good or a playoff don't like. Oh, in two teams. So I'm talking about expectations where I say win the division at least when one playoff. Correct. You better win this. Yes. It's a home game. You're one stadium around the league that is saying come one come all not everybody but they are going to have twenty thousand fans K. it's eighty thousand seats. So you spread them spread out. Yeah. Little social distancing probably not much no masks. Optional. It'll probably be fifty fifty at best. Loud. Yeah. Because when you're in a big eighty thousand seat stadium Rena. The reverberation of twenty thousand voices pretty strong right. So I'm going to say they're going to have as much home field advantages. Anybody who's playing because we're talk about some other games where they're going to be no Bonier. ADDLE TAMPA THERE's another game. Zero. Okay. Twenty thousand fans so okay. Advantage home team, right. Now to your point. Matt. Ryan put up some. Numbers you did he threw for four or five, four, hundred and fifty yards, and to your point Julio had nine for one hundred and fifty seven. That's that's hard to overcome. Russ did it Russell Wilson? He goes thirty, one, thirty five for not aren't over the into heard about it did in Russell didn't throw for huge yards. It was three, twenty, two, three, twenty, two not not great but. Hey. The Falcons had five zero, six total yards. Likes by defense is in some trouble right now because the wolf honor late vander ashes hurt again he's going with broken collarbone Sean Lee a Guy I used to love hurt again, both of them you put them in that brittle category he's hurt again. So you're you're down to quality linebackers and. Who then then you start looking at at the offense and A somebody named Taryn Steele's still starting at right tackle undrafted rookie out of Texas Tech. That's hard. Man Flood Protection you better slide you by yourself. This week is Lyle Collins obviously on. Four weeks Connor Williams I've never been a fan he graded poorly by pro football focus. Their last week at Grady Jerry. This guy and Zack Martin who I have nothing. But great respect for pro football focus says, and it's hard for me to great offense alignment. But they gave him a poor grade and they said he had. He doesn't move as well. Kept them needs man you start having some you need them back. Okay. So it's not going to be that easy ongoing, even higher scoring my offense is going to have to explode on them and they're capable I got thirty eight to thirty, five, Home Thirty, eight to thirty five and I'm going big numbers here. I'm going to say to your point you've been campaigning for this. I'm going to say they managed to get thirty carries disease. Okay. Already Times for one hundred, fifty. Okay. That would work for me couple of touchdowns I'M GONNA say. I'm going to say Tony Pollard might get close to ten carries. So they're going to be more a little more run heavy but but again. I got back throwing like thirty eight times. Okay. I got him throwing for. Three. Thirty got dominant the. Okay well, I just said thirty eight points because the other teams going to be scoring two they're going to get there. Will you have homo? So you got Zeke with thirty kids. That's a lot of time of possession another team pilot. That's forty. Russia tailgate. DAX three to five but seventy five places usually kinda what the winner gets. Right right in that ballpark. So I got seventy eight plays. Okay. Okay and I got CD lamb and you're going to say I'm over hyping putting too many expectations on his rookie head but but I got him eight for one hundred fifty and out Julio Ing Julio Okay. So it's going to have to be that kind of offensive explosion. To Offset Matt, Ryan, he will have his way in his day. So you saying the cowboys GonNa have over five hundred yards told law they have to well to get to thirty eight. Yeah and I'm not counting on any turnovers because we almost never get turnovers. So it's not going to be a turnover game, but you give Blair to guy to turn the ball over that's bids that's prone to turn it over. But when do we create?.
"russell gauge" Discussed on The Falcoholic
"We're back on the Falcons podcast David Walker I'm here with my co host Gene Kelly and we're joined by RJ show from blogging the boys. We're talking about the falcons upcoming a matchup with the cowboys in week two teams are all in one looking to bounce back from disappointing performances in their opening games. So let's talk now about this falcons offense in this cowboys defense. First of all the injuries are Jay I know. Sean Lee was already on I r before the season began and then you lost vansh how big of an injury was that? What does this cowboys linebacking core look like now? it's. It's probably the worst injury they could have sustained on the fence into the. To Be Blunt especially because you know jalen Smith is a really really well known story. And he's remarkable story and the fact that even in the NFL is incredible and a testament to his own drive is own will and really the marvels that are medicine in science and biology and all that jazz. However, he is really unfortunately not that great at the present moment applying linebacker on the NFL in late and vandross kind of mitigates since flaws in puts him in positions to be successful. and. So to not have lightened, Vancouver's Vander to not have Jalen Smith wealth and you mentioned it John Lennon was already on injured reserve. And so things will now funnel through Jalen Smith and they'd be not function that while for the cowboys last year when they did that across Layton also miss time, which is a lot of college fans generally down it does seem like this is going to be his his career a lot of people feel that way a lot of people have acquainted him obviously to the guy who ironically has been trying to replace Sean, Lee dealing with injuries cats like traffic's career but the cowboys next man up is Joe Thomas who a lot of people make jokes, the Cleveland Browns and everything I. mean he had experience playing with Mike McCarthy in Green Bay but joined the cowboys. I think it was a year ago maybe two years ago now and so that's it. It's Joe. Thomason Jalen Smith the cowboys did sign Rashad Smith off the practice squad of the Chicago bears this week. They have an undrafted free agent on their team in again cowboys really leaning on some undrafted free agents fear that they really liked from Utah and Francis Bernard but and I admittedly don't know why the only way that they could keep that they could acquire Rashad Smith in the best practice squad and not lose France Bernard off of their practice. Was To sign Rashad. Smith to their fifty three man roster and protect Francis Bernard. There's some NFL transactional rule that makes that tricky and sticky for them. So Rashad Smith is part of the fifty three this week Francis Bernard as much as they like him not be playing against the facets. Wow. Yeah well, that's Vanda rush injury come across the wire. I thought to myself that that one is going to hurt more than anything and that middle of the defense is going to become a big weakness now So Gina, rather than go into the trenches where we started in the first half, I want to work on the outside income back in because I feel like that match up in the middle is going to be a critical one especially with this cowboys unit but we're GONNA go there last I want to talk about what the Falcons did on Sunday granted. A lot of that was in garbage time but they literally had three one hundred yard receivers in a single game Matt Ryan had his second highest yardage total in his career. Second only to the five hundred dollars he put up on the Carolina Panthers in two thousand sixteen when Julio had hundred receiving yards in this game. Yeah. Julio Jones nine perceptions. Calvin really perceptions? Russell gauge receptions, all guys. All three guys got her dollars. Is this. Are you surprised by that sort of level of performance We all expected Ridley to sort of take the next step. I'm sort of stunned Russell Gauge has. So quickly emerged as a wide receiver three that is really performing. Well, what are your thoughts on this trio that has massive game on Sunday yeah. I mean that was really the only fun part. Tear it up Ryan. We all we all know that he is always capable of putting numbers like that. But yet to get Russell Gauge along with Holy O. M., Calvin to over one hundred yards that was really something special. Gauge feel like he's a guy that we've all. had good feelings about for a of his lashes ear in there, and again, you know without a preseason that. Not Nowhere but it seemed like he had a pretty good camp just a summer reports out of that and you know obviously he's had a couple of years to develop his chemistry with Matt and it seems to be all clicking. So you know I don't know if that's something that that they're going to be able to duplicate weekend and week out and I think that part of the reason that gage was able to blow up like that is because. While no NFL fans were really expecting Russell Gauge to go over one hundred yards neither were the seahawks and so I think that. helped. But you also have to remember and Oh are always going to draw the top cornerbacks. That's too much like Hitler Gabriel in two thousand, sixteen, create more opportunities for gauge I. Think. So I, mean he has a guide to definitely keep an eye on and clearly his timing is down with mad. Clearly, he's running the routes that Matt expect some to run based on his performance in week one so. Wall, he's probably not going to have over a hundred every week I think that he may end up being a pretty fundamentally important part of this offense. And two point I mean he for him to get the same number of targets twelve for each of the receivers to me. I'm a big believer that your quarterback tells you who he believes him. If he's throwing a lot to one guy and not to the other guys, your quarterback is telling you that he doesn't believe in those other guys with I. saw on Sunday was saying. I love the receivers you've given me and that's pretty heavy. Praise considering he's got one of the best receivers of all time on the outside RJ on that note. I will be honest with you. I don't know much about the corners that you guys are going to be starting on Sunday. So give us a primer on who is going to match up against Julio. Jones who's going to match up on Calvin Ridley and how you feel about those matchups. while. It's possible that the cowboys get John Lewis back for this game. He missed week one. He's probably the best veteran corner on their team part of the two thousand seventeen draft class along with debate rouget They're both playing in their contractors obviously and and they're they've been fine graphics for the cowboys haven't really been anything special second and Third Round Pick I. Think you would obviously like to see more but their careers of just kind of been what they have been lot of people feel like that they were wasted by Christopher Chart of last couple of years but. But what the cowboys do have is is something I think that they're really proud of right now in Trayvon digs their second round draft pick out of Alabama Trayvon, obviously the younger brother of Stefan Really I thought played extremely well against the rams was one of the best defensive players on the team and the fact that you know he's obviously got the confidence of the team to start. Some of that is you know opportunity born out of injury really says a lot about what he's able to do already at the NFL level, but it'll be it'll be. It'll be Daryl Worley. It'll be Anthony Brown, it will just kind of be you know getting by I mean Trayvon I think marks the beginning of a different shifts in terms of philosophy at cornerback but. The cowboys don't have a lot of players like that yet. So I I think you know there are a lot of commerce fans were absolutely concerned about what the Falcons could do often simply enter the. There's a reason why the start out there 'cause for Falcons parents I think that's where the story is really positive and as we work inside, it becomes less so. especially in this matchup. Before we get to that point you know the the Falcons have brought in several notable free agents. We mentioned one the first half, Dante Fowler's pass rusher I think probably the the big name maybe the second biggest name was Todd Gurley. In Week one obviously, the team's probably still getting used to him getting used to his his abilities..

"Because that seems to enjoyable for both of you so have to have this verified. By by outside source by someone who has no note nothing to gain in this except my pain. So Josh One week one. Of the year but he did start the season right and he did it with Greg. Olsen which is impressive. I don't know if any of us can top that. I. Don't know if we could top that but because he is our winner from last week, we'll start for the not. So obvious lock of the week who do you have for week two Josh Well okay. I. I had Russell Gauge circled on my list this I'm thinking that's probably not allowed. I mean, anything is allowed. It's just how you know how do you WanNa be basically to the listeners right I feel like if I go with Russell gauge their I probably and dealing with some pretty high expectations. A. What about Zach Moss? Can I get away with asking? Moss. All right. 'cause months for we do. Okay. So you've taken Zach Moss. Adams yet. Just no explanation as to why we're just going to like throw a name out there and what is your ultimate reason for Zach loss? He number eleven running back expected points in week one and I just don't really I don't believe anything in. Devon Single Terry and also Josh Allen was way up there like all of the bills players just. Apparently, the numbers are telling me that this offense is going to be good. And you pleased he plays the dolphins next week. Yeah. So I'm okay with that Josh, moving away from tight end I don't know. Regrettable I. Kind of want to see if he could. You know repeat back to back some tight ends, but he wasn't out for that. That's good took. A Little Logan Thomas Action Maybe, you should do it Adam. I mean Logan Thomas is going to be phenomenal, but he's not going to be my lock of the week. that. That I'm saving for love that I've had much longer than low than Thomas, a man who Might not be a man at all. You might you might be a star child. Might. Be might be an alien a months. Sammy Watkins is no joke is and he you led the Kansas City chiefs in targets by fifty percent margin no less Scott's and he repeated as the week one hero of fantasy football as you wasn't twenty nineteen and. I think this time it might actually be here to stay guy me I'm crazy I might be I understand that but he looked healthy. He looked Chris he looked like he was running routes very efficiently and a Patrick mahomes offense. I always want pieces and Sammy Watkins is the piece that no one wants to touch and you know what Sami. I'll be your huckleberry and having there's so many wire receivers in Kansas City like demarcus Robinson has his moments. Hardman has his moments nine and talking about Tyreek Kale. All these other guys like us, both I I I, respect them. It's it's it's a good. It's a good office to get a piece of in the not so obvious lock of the week, and we know it's been a long term love for you. So this is not some you know bandwagon reaction from you. So I respected Josh thoughts on Him Picking Sammy Watkins. It's the only thing that speaks against it is just the Jamie Watkins does this you know and that's not a real thing. Any other player comes out and does this and we're we're all over him I like we're all on T. Logan. Thomas. For All and team Russell Gauge but Sammy Watkins does you know more and how it Sammy? Watkins maybe maybe Sammy Watkins should get a little bit of credit for being You know a new player on a new team. Last year. So. Are. You saying not enough people believing Sammy Watkins Josh. Well I don't really believe in Sammy Watkins. I applaud those to do. Okay. Respect respect to him. Respect. Your applause. I'm actually GONNA go with a long-term love of my own. except minds are running back. Can either one of you guessing my long-term love is who I have. One, hundred percent confidence and Who is Not Sure I'm not sure he wants to steal your thunder. Thunder all episode, I mean. Let me let go talking about Derek McInnes. Damn you damn you. Derby Canaan is back. He's back boys scored a touchdown last week he seemed to eat up to Jetson week to. This and I don't know how anyone can't be excited about Jerry McCain at this point like my guys a baller he's a baller he's back he's healthy. This offense and team believes in him they need them. Jerick McKinnon is my not so obvious lock of the Week Adam I dare you to say something negative. Say I mean it's the forty niners against the jets the forty niners. pissed after phasing the cardinals who really actually showed up on defense last week and only get to go against the worst of the NFL I mean they're going to roll. So yeah similar to how getting of the Kansas City offense is good any week getting the peace of began or getting a piece in the San Francisco offense going up against the jets is a great move and I mean from what we saw they do your McKinnon to be utilized I mean to me he's probably going to be a ten touch guy but ten touches against the jets is probably Venezuela. Hey listen I'm trying to take a week to victory. I need an early victory like Josh. I can't go weeks in a drought SR getting crazy and desperate and..

"Total wildcard He's A. He's a good low in starting tight in like. If you get past the guys that you feel confident or going to be top seven or eight tight ends, there's no better to throw than Gronk. Because when he plays, he could be a top three tight end again like he. He looks like he's an outstanding shape. He's basically the same age as Trevon Travis Kelsey if he's one hundred percent healthy. Then he could be perfectly fine. was he a thorn in the side of the wide receivers? Did you downgrade the wide receivers because of Gronk? Little, yes. God One in particular, because I care a lot about the death throws and what he was talking about with Evans. He's a downfield targets. Same thing I was saying with Brady. Evans to me is actually less impacted by grow vertical tight end, but his his depth is going to be really close to Godwin's. Godwin's GONNA run the same kind of option routes in everything that that'll mean and and Welker ran just a different player. He's a more vertical slot receiver. Those guys were like six yards of depth. target Godden was like ten last year. Evans was like fourteen. So I I actually have leading the team in targets and I've grop cutting into Godwin a little bit, but I have. I ended up with God, having more targets than heath, even dead, because I had them passing a little bit more so okay all right? We got a couple of teams left. We've got the Atlanta. Falcons and seven and a half wins for the Falcons. Over. Under? I think all the teams in the south. Besides Carolina might win nine games. Well, they finished strong last year. In fact, their defense, they went six into in their last eight games, and they gave up eighteen point six points per game. Thirty one points per game in their first eight games, they went one in seven eighteen point six and their last day games. They went six into very interesting. We talk a lot about the bucks defense getting better. We don't talk as much about the Falcons defense getting better. I'm not sure that we buy it because I. Think People Think Their Defense GonNa Stink this year. The number to know is twenty nine. The Falcons have been twenty nine, th or worse than rushing production each of the past two seasons. Matt, Ryan qb seven going in between to Shawn. Watson and Josh Allen. Todd Gurley is around three pick early round three RB fifteen inbetween, head, Edwards, air and Melvin, Gordon, would you guys have rather have Melvin Gordon Todd Gurley. I think I've taken Melvin Gordon over him out I. Don't really draft either actually have really bought ahead of marrying kings but I, I don't usually draft running back ever in that range I've got girly a little higher in non and Melvin a little higher NPR, but they're. They're very very close. I would take both of them over Clyde but. And I know you're gonNA love the ADP for Calvin. Ridley Wide Receiver Sixteen. Round Four in-between Adam feeling at AJ Brown. But that! Ridley over both of them. have out you, Ben. Over both too I, have really over AJ Brown by one spot. Okay very excited about really good good and like I said both guys project the top twelve wide receiver, Julio and Ridley. Seven touchdowns projected for for Julio Jones. That's a lot. A lavery him. Todd Gurley hundred and twenty carries in a sixteen game season. That's what he had in fifteen games last year. So not the typical workload for Todd Gurley Heath. Know how the Falcons could like we? We know that he's not quite the same guy that used to be and the one thing that could. I, don't even know if it would change it, but like if their defense was good. Maybe he gets to to forty or two fifty, but this is a team that historically has shared the football, and now they've got a running back. Who's got some arthritic component in his knee? I think they're gonNA keep sharing football in the backfield. Now the question is who is it. Ito Smith is a Qadri. Olsen is Bryant Hill. We don't really know that, but there there's a second running back that we'll be draftable in Atlanta we just WanNa who it is yet? Also was used pretty heavily as a goal line back like a pound or is bigger back. I so I, split the backup. Attempts basically between Ito and Brian Hill, and gave all sin a kind of a smaller amount, but much higher touchdown rate think that's a possibility for his role, but I still yeah, agree with. It's hard to know and I don't have either the backups looking great the thing that stands out to me with the Falcons. Projection is concentrated this offensive. I mean the you, don't you? You don't project a Lotta offenses as concentrated as you will. When you look at Atlanta if you do a projection, because the basically of Julio Jones Calvin Ridley and Hayden hearse, and they project for over six hundred pass attempts pretty easily, both being he'd have way over six hundred even if their defense improves. It's something that dirk covered. It brought last year and also did. Earlier in two thousand ten when he was there coordinator for three straight years, they threw a ton and he threw a ton everywhere else. He's Bet, Nestor Cutter for you, so we're going to see a lot of passing. We're not gonNA. See A lot of great weapons in this offense, so that means lot of targets to those weapons that are there and even Russell Gauge who's going to be the number three. This guy was on a hundred and sixteen target pace in the final nine games. Decent I wanted to bring that up because. I, Kinda like Russell, gauge. He was a nice little waiver wire pickup last year, specifically NPR. I kind of feel like he can do it. Muhammed's new used to do so. I. Kind of challenging I guess what you said about how concentrated it would be I feel like Russell. Gauge could could be a little bit of a thorn in the side of of the big three on this team. Wasn't good. He was very. Inefficient. He doesn't have a long track record record and college because he's a converted defensive back. And both Calvin Ridley and And Julio Jones were very good. So in my opinion, yes, he, there's there's a lot of options like a lot of target potential. I would say for because that's added. Just said he had a hundred sixteen target as in so many targets.

"You know a fringe first round prospect. They wind up getting him. Early in the third round I think that they the the results that came from the process that they chose a turned out to be pretty good and I think the judge Jones decent chance that he starts right away over Justin Marine Arizona. Yeah interesting what Brandon. Thorn has to say about that once. We get his stuff as we get closer to the season. Let's move to the Atlanta Falcons They took first round offensive Lineman last year than these third round. Pick this year on Mad Hennessy. But but look they passed on? Sealand which we talked about on Friday. They pass on all wide receivers really and I know you think very lowly of Russell Gauge. I don't think Russell teachers any kind of world-beater but Russell gauge did average over eight targets per game down the stretch. Last year I believe was final. Five or six games mentioned him In my fantasy winners article you can check out on the site. And also you know Falcons two zero R. BS so tigers competition is pretty dusty. I'm Brian Hill Quadra. Allison the judge Ito Smith. I was a little bit surprised. That falcons didn't at least try to get in upgraded third wide receiver again upgrade at running. Back what did you think about? What the Falcons did in the draft while they had a pathetic cowardly draft. But that's you know real life take in not necessarily applicable to fantasy and you mentioned Russell gauge all of a sudden. He's like a PR back in late. Round sleeper running routes between Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones. And he's GonNa get more opportunity than people think I mean that's why they should have taken C. D. lands. Then in that scenario. They wouldn't have to do this with Russel Gage but now they're probably GonNa have to and he did have some Some positive moments last season. you're right at the running back nate into anything and they're going to bring back. Brian Hill and Edo Smith and You know a Buncha replacement level Backs BEHIND TODD? Gurley and I started doing my my initial run of running back. Rankings and I mean he's he's coming out pretty nice in that. Rb Fifteen area last year. He did not have setbacks with his knee And they the Rams Raynham pretty hard in the second half of the year I think that this is going to be. I think it's GonNa be a pretty good offense in Atlanta. I think it's not as good as it would have been if they had they taken. Cd Lamb. But I think that their offensive line JAKE MATTHEWS ALEX. Mack The right side has gotten a lot better left guard. James Carpenter was or the. The right side is made up of the first round picks from last year. Caleb Garin Chris Lindstrom and then left Dr James Carpenter not very good a lot of experience but not very good is GonNa get pushed by Matt Hennessy. They draft third round was a guy that had a lot of second round buzz And Come at temple ethic is a guy that.

"I I just think I don't really know what he gives you. I think maybe a good comparison might be sharp paramedics Barbara Sharper minutes playing a bottom five past defense in Detroit so I probably rolled pressure Perriman over Russell gauge so that that's where I stand on Russell Gauge. Yeah he'd be tough one. Would he be one Senate counseling Whereas you you want to see what is usages and then kind of go from there? I mean we kind of saw a little bit of it when Um Julia was out right. Yep I was going to say. I think I'd take the same approach with Russell Gauge and like this is where people need to maximize for example sample and my bench in the playoffs. And I have Jacob Hollister James Washington. Carl's hide I'm going to drop hide. I've Evan them and drop Evans. Probably anybody that you're knocking us the next two weeks. Just drop even if they're pretty good player and then stash these players like Boston Scott Russell Gauge. Because who knows maybe Russell gauge gets fifteen targets against San Fran with Calvin Ridley out and they have bobby no a Mohammed to new. So we don't know what it's GonNa look like I think given the volume. Oh you bet. He should be receiving I. I think he's a good player to stash your bench. Yep and he's playing up four o'clock so one of the things. I did this past week and in really all actually actually luckily getting the best play in. But you know I sat marla Mac playing at one. I didn't play leered playing at one. It's GonNa Bounce between Darwin Thompson Christian Kirk and I wanted to do. They're playing four. What I wanted to do was see? How a matchup was going? I am a matchup was going pretty well and kinda stuck with Kirk and luckily mean. Darwin Thompson didn't do really much. I mean He. He snuck out eight points. So what you could do here. What I'm trying to get at is being at four o'clock? See All your matchups going Thursday game you got all the one o'clock Mike aims. You're GonNa get a really good sense of where matchups at because if forty niners duds put up a lot of points on the on the Falcons and they're basically just chuck mode for an entire quarter and a half plus in Russell gauge fills that slot underneath role with Calvin Ridley than a full point. You might be able to squeeze out more upside than whoever you're considering a scenario that maybe two four Clark teams or players or something. I don't like that but just something to keep an eye on something that I did last week bouncing through four players that I've really leaned towards the players that were playing at four just because it was so close. What do you think about? Is that bad strategy idea or some. No I like I like doing that all the time I think ah especially when you can pick players up right bright until well the locks probably at noon or whatever but I like I like doing that and go ahead in the match up if I WANNA blow Samina blow out this week. It looks like I'm GonNa run away with it. Maybe I'll drop a player that I don't need this week And then pick up a player that plays on Sunday night or Monday night. It hasn't played yet and then Stanford yeah if your roster if you can do that sure that's a good idea too. I like that all right well. I guess it's rap week fifteen semi finals. It's here twenty thousand nine hundred fantasy football playoffs. We wish everyone the best of luck where the NFL talking heads soon. Thanks so much for listening to of this episode of the N._F._l..

"russell gauge" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Football
"Let's get to some of the news and a bunch of injury updates including that surrounding calvin really another. NFC South wide receiver out for the season season because of an abdominal injury reminder. It's week fifteen. A lot of players would not necessarily be missing all that much time otherwise but because it's the end of the season they go to I our next man. Up in the Falcons Wide Receiver Group. Is there anybody who can be fantasy relevant matthew. Or because of Austin Hooper being back and a scheduled next includes the San Francisco forty nine or are you just instead relying upon. Julio and Hooper and Devante Freeman and Matt Ryan. Yeah I think so I mean I know. There's some talk about Russell Gauge and maybe you could see him him but I think for me. I feel like gauges emergence has also happened at the Austin who was out so again like an and I might feel differently if this were week. Eight but it's week fifteen. Be the same. Yeah I know on and get cute with somebody like a Russell Gauge especially on the road at San Francisco and look I get it there. No Richard Sherman No D.. For the forty niners defense has gotten banged up recently. But it's still going to be a home game for the forty niners after last week's you. You know defensive letdown. I mean saints. You know the ball back and forth them. I would be hard pressed to trust Russell gauge to me. Julio and Hooper. You know and and Freeman if you need some running back help Russell feels. I know we've done the whole fetch thing but like Russell Gauge feels like fetch like since Muhammad's has been traded like we keep trying to have a thing and it's just not happening like on a consistent basis whatsoever for seventeen yards over his past couple of games look otherwise penny tours. ACL He's out for the season. What it means is that Chris Carson's Larson's GonNa be a very busy man no other seahawks running back that other one of us is advocating to pick up? They get a great match on Sunday. Despite the fact that they have to cross the the country and play the panthers That's a great great matchup for Chris. Carson followed by Arizona. Carson should be locked in as a running back for the rest of the season asked talked about this on Monday but DJ Shark is week to week with this foot injury when surprise me if he sits out for the rest of the season just because of the fact Jaguars are playing for nothing other than in draft positioning and perhaps saving their jobs. We talked about Chris Conley yesterday in the possibility of him stepping up. The problem is again matthew he had what one catch this past week. Hard to feel super solid about starting any Jaguars wide receiver going into this week. Other than Dede Westbrook could Chris Conley pop he could. They have a great match up against the Bad Oakland Secondary. Mary just don't know that I'm going to have them ranked as a top. You know thirty five or forty play. Yeah he's a there's a couple of desperation dark throws right see. We mentioned the eagles wide receivers as we. You know we. We mentioned Chris Conley I just mentioned Mike Evans. So you know just in Watson or Perriman they could certainly pop against the lions this week. You know but so there's a bunch of guys sort of out there that you sort of squint and you're close your eyes and you hope right. But that's what they are again week. Sixteen like if you're limping into the plan your limping into the playoffs but I don't know that you would have tons of competence. It's just sort of like you know I'd prefer a Pascal. I'd prefer deebo Samuel Beazley XLII dairy slate and guys that are out there in a decent amount of leagues. So Darius GEIS's out for weeks for the redskins right now. They've only said week fifteen matthew but wouldn't inspired me again if he's out for the rest of the season Adrian Peterson back into the starting lineup. NFL Network reporting that He is unlikely to play the rest of the season. I've heard from some other people. I believe you've got to be correct as well. I think it would be very surprising. especially given how the season has gone for Washington that we see Darius skies again I think they want to be smart with a young player. WHO's dealt with some injury issues issues in his career so good news at the You know the tests were negative so everything looks good. I'm sales intact but my expectation is is that we've probably seen the last of Darius. CBS guys this season. And I agree with you. So Adrian. Peterson gets Philadelphia this week. Then the giants then Dallas like non involved in the passing game but runs hard is going to get a bunch of volume and always a chance that he falls in the end zone so I think he's a you know he's a flex not a ton of upside you. You know there's a there's a low floor there but certainly you could do worse at the running back position given the state of the position. James Winstons optimistic. He can play through that thumb injury. Matthew Kathy again he played through it on Sunday. I'm not saying I'm not dismissing it entirely. But you know. I don't know that this is a guy that you have to feel entirely like well. I'm super nervous about Jameis Winston on Sunday. Like if you're feeling feeling confident and playing with him are playing him. You've always understood the risk involved. James Swiss so no risk it no risk and as we often say here on the podcast. No no Mike Gavin certainly certainly hurts as well. So we've got the thumb and then you've got no Mike Evans. Don't love match up. It is a great match up with D Daniels Roy. HORRIBLE AWFUL LAW SEASON DETROIT. Lions do how many ones do have takes one to know one matthew. That's how many wins. We have certain I'm just asking how many wins three wins. And what's amazing is my redskins which I believe to be the worst franchise in the NFL. We also have three wins. Really impossible as possible that your franchise which is sort of on an upswing upswing. Yeah has the same number of wins. My terrible doesn't know what we're doing franchise I have no idea matthew. That's a great question. That's a really fantastic question from that standpoint. At one point you guys had such optimism. I never had optimism. No like I feel like you would be more disappointed at this point because I sort of this is what I expected right. This is what I what I know. It'll be happening and I'm actually rooting for us to continue to lose. I'm upset. We won the two games. Yeah that we want the draft. Today the Redskins have the third pick. The lions would have the A fifth. You guys can argue over this a little bit later on. I think that that baby we Lamar Jackson better than you. Boom Lamar Jackson banged up right now with a quad injury. As of this moment we do not know that. It's a major threat to keep that. I was doing booms on Cameron. I bet the video people will want us to do a we should. We should reset that. I apologize to Kenny in the video team for doing all the booms on Daniel Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson accent is little bit banged up right now with a quad injury. Don't know right now that it's a real threat to keep them out of Thursday night's game with the short weeks are always a bit tricky it would be. Rg Three stepping being in. But I think that the reality is if and this is a major f Lamar Jackson SIP. Because it doesn't feel like it's trending that way matthew some other names to consider for a week fifteen and we can talk about these more on Friday. Because if Lamar Jackson sitting out on Thursday night you are probably not playing Sam Darnold. You're probably waiting for the weekend anyways. Philip rivers available in almost sixty percent of leaks coming off of a big game this past Sunday and home to Minnesota which is not the Minnesota Vikings defense. You think it is like you. You can throw on Minnesota Mitch Trubisky who. We talked about quite a bit yesterday available in eighty percent of leaks. He's been quarterback four weeks ten through fourteen Ryan Fitzpatrick who plays plays that giant secondary. We saw last night. It's not very good plus as you discussed earlier Matthew Eli Manning Ninety five percent available. They play to the giants the dolphins dolphins on Sunday and obviously if Danielle returns he would also be in this conversation question for you here. Follow up so if we're GONNA go into waivers tonight and we are unlikely to the no the status of Lamar Jackson the expectation is John. Harbaugh said he's Day to day. I agree with. You doesn't seem serious as we stand up but there have been times where it's just like it's fine. It's fine and then all your son's like Lonzo creeps up on you right. Josh Jacobson example last year like we knew he was last week. We knew he was banged up. But we're like he's probably gonNA play through it. He's been playing through it for a while and then all of a sudden boom loom. He's out right. So if you're going into waivers tonight and you've been writing Lamar Jackson all season long. And he's your quarterback. Why would you need another one? Are you picking up another a quarterback in exchange in as opposed to picking up some another piece you might need like a streaming defense or a tight or whatever or are you just like you know what I'm GonNa roll the dice and that if Lamar Jackson is out on Thursday. I'll see who's left on the waiver. Wire that because I was like how many teams right now playoffs are also shopping for a quarterback. If someone wants to play defense on you and grab four quarterback this week that's his or her prerogative but I would be waiting for the opportunity to grab the marge action especially if there was a great eight. Maybe you are really worried about your defense this week and you've got a great streaming option that you could add on the wire. I agree with that. I think it's just it's worth knowing your league like if you're an deeper league like I'm in some deep leagues where there's a prize pools for the for the people that are out of the playoffs as well so there. There are more competition on the waiver. Wire my point is there's more competition the way variety than just the teams that are left in the playoffs. So it's important no sort of the size of your free agent pool and then yes the changes the game but under what ninety percent of leagues are where. It's just the people that are playing left. Then yes I will be willing to be patient with Lamar Jackson. We're GONNA take a quick break and come back checking discuss players on waivers also more important information from our friends at the V. Foundation the back and before we get to waiver wire which of course is now live on. ESPN DOT COM Matthew. Little bit information on our.

"From around the League presented by sleepwear all right. We have to laugh at this because poor Al Borland. Nobody's posted more jumping out of a window gifts in the last like seven days. The now Borland I traded him George Kibble and one of our leagues right at the trade deadline for his stretch run. He paid up. He paid up and kill is torturing this man. He's nodding in sadness. Sadness tears rolling down his face. George kibble yesterday afternoon it was reported. He's GonNa miss the game against the cardinals which out which I do expect him to to. I'm going to miss the game. And then this morning there was a clarification. Br Put al by Santa Hand that he's not been formerly ruled out. which simply means you as a fantasy owner Al L. and everyone out there with An incredible George. biddle asset are going to be tortured by the illustrious Q.. Not allowing him to be moved into your I. Why are spot was formerly ruled out? was that first report from Ross dwelling. If I were asked Willie I might try to do that based on the cardinals tied in defense. He's just he's going with the Oprah secret he's just putting it out into the universe letting it happen yes so right now no formal formal rule out but don't expect George Kill. Make your plans now. Make your free agent signings now. Like memory has not ruled out as well right. He's expected didn't miss one to two weeks I know but he's doing ruled except on the other side. He's probably going to end up being in the game because he always for for a quarter I think he actually Mrs to give a straightforward advice. Brita should miss a game or two. But you're right nothing formal. That hurts the team if you can't put them into the IRA spot couple of injury. UPDATES before we get into our matchups. Jacoby percent is expected to start week. Eleven it's great news so he he practiced in full yesterday so so. It's just a matter of today if there's no swelling and everything is good to go than than he's a Green Light Austin. Hooper expected to be out a month. Liu Keep Your eyes on Russell Gauge over the next van full of weeks snap counts target. Share was already. Okay Yeah lost in Hooper's gone that's a great point I've been bringing up Calvin Ridley as a guy that I I think it's going to have a really nice stretch. Run here and I and I do believe that. But you can't just go get it Calvin Ridley whereas Russell Gauge. He's out there on your waivers. You can go scoop them up. And he's sounds like an action star Dude Russell Gauge VIN diesel in the new new Sark. Lido easy isn't a revenge. Movie in the new movie Mediocre Slot Receiver was Gome. Shooter tick do also gauge. I'll hot take. I'd rather have Russell Gauge on my roster arrest season Larry Fitzgerald so that hot okay. It was all right Matt Burrito like I said one to two weeks Tyler Lockett. DOC is expected to be ready to play week twelve after the bye week later. David Montgomery Limited in practice. Joe Everett Limited. DD returned to practice practice Wednesday. How do you approach Jacksonville? I am very I am extremely. I think there are trapped. This week is what is my point. I think they're a trap against Washington trying to mean the colts. Yeah sorry the colts okay. Okay with with Foale's coming back or with Didi coming back. I just WanNa see it to believe it. Are you all in on Jack. I am very excited for what could happen. Open to Jacksonville. Because I do think nick foles city is a yes. is a better quarterback than Garner men shoe and the team is already been mm producing some really excellent fantasy options. Dj Chart Leonard Fournette. I'm excited to see them. Progress forward. But I'm definitely taking a wait and see the approach. I'M A it's a hopeful. benching of Dede Westbrook. I you know you'll still start. Dj Shark because you probably have to at this point and and for Matt but with I'm not playing foles I'm not playing Didi but I am hopeful. I'm willing to play. Didi his target share and everything. It was safe I get it was it. It was Gardner but everything of Nick foles that we know about him. I think I relying not not just on the preseason but just the entire body body of work of Nick foles using week one coming back off the injury one of Nick foles your and against the pretty competent defense. The injury is my concern. I've I've I've said this this week on the show. I'm I'm taking a stop calling your shot approach. If you're not a star right like James Connors a star fantasy running back. He's coming back off. He goes right in my line of but DD is a guy that he's going to have to prove it to me from here on news and notes always brought to you by the sleeper sleeper up. Tomorrow we'll have in and out on the show we're going to we're going to tweak in and out a little bit we're we're going to focus that down to just the really big names that you need predictions on because we've got the game day alerts coming every Sunday morning.

Mike's live on Sunday morning with last minute injury reports so we'll we'll get you analysis updates on the biggest names tomorrow that people are doubting their availability.

"Course. We're talking about second year wide receiver l._s._u. Russell gauge is it time to ramp up the hype down or let it simmer okay so i am aware of all the things i just said about kamensky because they came out of my mouth but i'm also trained for russell gauge. I love watching watching this guy play. I'm super excited about him so i've i've already ramped up. Obviously that's awesome. Are you gonna leave it there the jason they know why i'm excited <laughter> well. That's true. That's that's a fair shake. The jason your thoughts on russell gauge hyped down or you're going to let him simmer. I think i think you didn't hear anything from me because as i was waiting to finally disagree with gina and then says exactly what i'm going to say and i'm all aboard all aboard the russell gates hype train those point i think the guy has looked so legit this preseason and the fact that he already has a year under his belt and even if you look at some of the tape the end of last year you saw him kind of emerge <unk> after we once they were four nine and just say all right. We're just gonna get guys involved and try to figure out what we got next year. That sort of thing you saw russell gave start catching some balls they weren't it wasn't just like wide open stops. The guy was was covered. E e broaden some tough grabs than he's done the same in the preseason and what strikes me as absolutely insane as this guy had only one one year of real production at l._s._u. Have the right area two hundred eighty five yards receiving and i asked the matt ryan this week i i just i was like what is your prototypical receiver. The l._s._u. Didn't use them usually. I don't know what else was probably probably sounded worse than it was. Basically it was like i don't know what l._s._u. Was using them like but the guys legit and so. I'm all aboard the the russell gauge hype train. I think the guy he's a legitimate fourth option for this team right now. Wow okay so <hes> i think there's been in some debate even as far as where he fits versus someone like a justin hardy in the pecking order and i think you just said this fourth receiving option option you think that he is possibly pushed ahead of hardy undermine the depth chart at wide receiver in my opinion yeah i excited i think yeah i think i think so and the way matt ryan talked about him. Just two days ago it was so glowing and ryan is usually pretty even keeled and you can kind of get a sense okay. He's giving you just throw the run of the mill matt ryan answer and you didn't get data deal with russell gauge it kind of got the feeling that that he is even excited about <unk> is development of what he can possibly be in the future. Wow really cool so we've got to the hyped up for gauge <hes> definitely want to see what he does an expert game so definitely named to keep keep an eye on for falcons fans <hes> next name again another one that has been popping in camp <hes> both from the coaches in what we've seen in some of the preseason games and that's running running back brian hill who has had arguably one of the roughest roads to get here yeah he was drafted two years ago <hes> <hes> he made the roster but then they the team cut him mid season i believe hoping they could stick him on the practice squad and he got signed away by a believe you've cincinnati went to the bengals and came back last year onto the practice squad that he's back act this year <hes> i think there's been a notable improvement in his running. <hes> and i think we saw a little bit. Even towards the end.
