Patrick Laird Who? It's Zach Zenner Week

"I know I don't know how to answer necklace. I mean if it wasn't Patrick Leahy Art Season it would be Rashad pennies. I'm GONNA pull for his act senator this week. Ask consider such a hater team. Dolphins signed him. I didn't even know that. Yeah baby so you guys are saying layered because enter the choice. Everyone's one's not taken so India fast. Let's go zetter. Let's go. I'm locking them in Zach. Four point point seven point with unlimited data. You are now locked to the clock dodgers podcast along more than dodgers podcast. I'm your host. Neal Whitney is Mr at a twenty two and fascinating. Still a winner was up Adam. Adam best ball best same shit. Same Shit Man. What can you do shit anyways daily? It seems like the the best this ball championships series was brutal for a lot of people But Luckily I was able to have James White. Just shocked the world and keep me in a my only share of the mega best all championships. So at least one of those two Has has decent money on the lines to and that's why that's why you put James Wedding your team man just for moments like these. I Know Australian him year after year. Say say he's he's true and true man. Now you know you wouldn't do a show without the man of many job roles who isn't on the payroll resahd pennies wikipedia page editor under Pennies twitter mascot. Mr I'll find a way to mention Rashad Pinon every football conversation. What's up Josh? You're really taken the fun out of its. It's you know if you put right there for me. I feel like it's just. It's too easy. Listen I change your twitter handle to reshot something about acts me about Rashaad shot penny. I'm like what is this guy doing it. Can I believe you were that guy. Man is like is this judge. I just WanNa talk about shop any. It's all it's all he wants to do Adam that's all he wants to do. That's what we'll talk about. Reshot many we'll give you your your moment to shine Josh. Don't worry it'll come it's playoff time. Only the skilled in the lucky have survived. I guess you could say if you've been listening to us all season I know you have a bunch of playoff teams. All right guys. Many of course they must not saying of course. So let's let's get them. You know some success now in the playoffs adult almost get them to the championship. Let's get to the big dance. Some people don't have bi weeks as they're not me So we have to help them win this week and Let's do that. Let's start with headlines like we always do. We have injuries. We have some players that were signed. We have a little mixture of everything with it being the playoffs. Obviously you have to. You know we're we're going to mention some guys here and obviously. I don't know what we'll do. We'll discuss more about. How much risk you WanNa take in the playoffs? But let's talk about some guys. Anyway they have signed got hurt. And all this other stuff chiefs signs spencer. where I think where it's been out for a bunch of teams? This year finally found himself a spot back on his old team. Because of the injuries are dealing with. Do you guys care about spends aware I mean at this point at all. Yeah Yeah I think you'd have to because Andy Reid Hate Star Win Thompson and this. It's pretty evident at this point that he wants someone who's bet in that system before this week. I mean you're going to be without both the Williams boys so I don't see the Shawn McCoy getting a full workload. So where's GonNa get touches. I mean how many touches I duNno. I'd probably say like five to ten. But would I be shocked. Spencer aware came in and they give him fifteen touches. I wouldn't be I mean. It's the Andy Reid system. They're going to keep cycling running backs they're gonNA have potential oh for for big performances. So yeah it's it's weird but just him signing off the streets makes him fantasy relevant Donovan. Right he's a little different because he is like you said familiar with the team. He's been on the team. He knows the system Josh is playing the Patriots though that give you any concern well yeah it all gives me concerned because I just don't think that anybody knows anything about the Kansas City backfield anymore like it's just over. All of those bags are just completely. I mean it's crap shoot yet has saved volume. Yes one of those things like you feel like any of them can score a touchdown any of them could be flex worthy if they just got a couple in a couple of plays to go their way and a touchdown so it's like but again it's the Patriots is the play offs. I personally feel like I don't I'm not trust in any of these guys I don't know if in particular you got These running-backs in a bad spot flags are you guys has run into it at all. I'm not but I mean like where feels like one of those weird guys who I mean. He he's an ad but against against someone like you know hatrick layered who's probably out there on rivers like. Are you really GonNa pick up Spencer wherein play him when you just you know idea what to expect so so I think going into the fantasy playoffs. I'm much more willing to take a risk on something we know something we don't. Yeah and hopefully you're in one of those redraft leagues where they don't want those Pesky people who got eliminated big waivers. You know you have to worry about them. Then you can get your where you know you know what I'm just. I'm just glad to drowsiness. thinness now's would be a foul or no foul. Don't worry but that's all right. I'm done playing redraft after this year. Anyway I don't believe I will be playing A ton of best ball on a ton of the FX so much fun and I'll keep my dynasty leagues but yeah the whole fastballs just turned into a rules debate. It's so silly happens. Animals what happens we also have here on the headlines that lock. It was an offer last last week he was to be making fair. He was sick he was sick guys. He did against the Vikings defensive backs but he got no appoints. Do you guys have any issue trust in lucky in the playoffs. You have any concern at all or are you just chopping it up. As he was sick they took the secondary targeted him minimum focus. And I'm not worried about it at all I. I don't I have trust issues within and having the flu or whatever it was that he had is. That's a real thing but I just I don't think that he's back from his leg issue. I think that's still bothering him. And so I. I'm just going to be a week late at this point on Penn Tower. Lock it back into my lineup. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I'm a little shocked. You said that Adam are you with him on that. I mean it's so funny to me that you're on the side of this because this reminds me so much David Johnson like. It's the same type of situation. The guy gets an injury guy. Misses time guy comes back. Guy Has absolutely no production. And you guys are flip-flopping roles like Ooh you know to me. It's the same situation and I feel the same way about David. Johnson there is something more going on now. Does that mean. He's going to be injured This week or was it the flu. I don't know I'm not close enough to a team. The no I'm not close enough to lock to no. I don't think probably even even other players on the team I know for sure. Would we're going to know is if it prolongs itself so yeah. I'd be concerned if I have of him definitely but I think at the same time. I'm not going to be surprised at all if he comes on. Just has the normal game and it was the flu last week. He's over the injury so I just think that there's there's too much unknown deal competent but at the same time like I still think he has potential for upside. What what percentage of like playoff rosters offers do you think lock? David Johnson are GONNA mess up one way or the other this week like really I think. Yeah I'm sorry admin interrupt but yeah I think people are Johnson as well okay so you don't think no one's worried about him so lock it. I mean do you think do you think there's a percent of people who are actually going to be affected in a the big way one way or the other or do you think majority people are just going to start on like what do you think. The consensus is A majority since I think the majority of people. We're going to play lock it because of how he's produced so far this season because of how reliable Russell Wilson is bad and it's a good match up so like there's a lot of factors that are going on. That direction was hilarious to me is. This is a guy who since week nine hasn't done anything so I mean we're all remembering his giant game game against Tampa Bay but there there hasn't been anything sense. It's so similar to David Johnson and I think with both these situations against there's either. There's something more going on when guys more injured than we're getting information on there still playing for whatever reason or this is just like some crazy sense so I don't know personally I think it's similar to Dj in the sense. That I think he's hurt so I don't think I'd feel confident. Starting him at all and that's fair. Agai that Hasn't really done much. Fantasy Kaelin Balaj had a leg injury. He's done I'm not GonNa talk about the guys replacing Youtube talk about since you guys care way more than I do So go go ahead and take the MIC fellas. Patrick layered very exciting. But I really feel like miles. Gaskin might quietly quietly have the best chance to completely completely consolidate workload if someone is going to because Patrick layered has been like completely completely where assault on the ground and I know that that you know catches targets are a lot more valuable but he has like no hope hope of of having that role he is very much limited to the pass catching role from what we've seen so lasts for me riddick. The ground like you could try ready. Give credit point five yards per carry his not bad different. If if he's going to get six seventy targets you know that maybe you have something but otherwise I think one of those guys can be overlooked a little bit here. Exact Center Season Boys Zach Jenner season. been telling you name he's GonNa get the touchdown I just. Yeah I mean honestly though. I'm pretty much Josh. It's Theo riddick I mean that's what we're looking at here more. It's the already doesn't even get targeted every game. So you can't be that confident in Take over I mean if anything. He's just going to be somebody who sees a good amount of targets has a high. PBR floor because of that. That that's the most you're hoping from for him on on his best day. He is James White on his worst day. So like for me if you're in the fantasy playoffs You cannot be too happy with that. But he. He does have the potential for high Florida's because of his targets. If you're one of those people who get wrapped up in the fantasy community on twitter your fantasy community on podcast you may be one of the people who are susceptible to start in this guy right. I mean there's a height machine it's very strong and there are the people who fall victim to this right. I mean I don't care what you guys say. People are GONNA fall victim to this hype that is being built up. I don't know if it's jokingly or for real or what it is but they're Argonne people who fall into that. I mean some people are just going to be susceptible to it and I'm not a fan of it so you trying to accuse lowered of being a false prophet office. Of course not I would never do such a thing. I don't even think he's Allie. He's the one. Context of a prophet is a bunch of I mean he went on the podcast of people who are so like a pretty gloves. It's always interested me. But he's like all the fancy stuff is like. Oh what's going on here and it's like as possible. How is it possible your plan and you can say something like that so I don't know it's weird to me you're gonNA start? Patrick Layer or Matt Brita. This week rarely back where he mazar right. Yes Rita doing this spring the zags honor. Trust me folks. You have to do something dangerous. He goes enter saw. Somebody that's also. Well someone has returned. This week is John. Ross has been activated from IRR. He's more worthy of start art than Patrick. It's just the facts is what actually matters a fantasy. In my opinion this does matter. I think it does the atom over those pesky dwellers aren't in the league's anymore but they still get the pig off waivers. You add John. Ross you ruin someone season nounce skin. You do add. Hi John. Ross if you don't have if he's on it so when you add them I think he's I think he's legit a factor. They went with me on this. Yeah I mean. I don't see how you can start him this week. But he's a nice speculative add because I mean when he was playing with Andy Dalton at the beginning of the year he had some explosive games. Now how do I think he's just going to automatically have that occur again by no means but if the potentials there and this late in the season I mean he's as the top player that you want to have on your bench. There's so much junk that you probably have on your bench if you're on. The fantasy playoffs stuck the players. That you know you're never gonNA don't feel confident play. I feel like John. Ross goes out and has a twenty point week this week. You feel pretty confident to play him if Andy Johns GonNa continue being quarterback so I think that there's definitely definitely a potential for upside and if you're if you're a consistent listener to the podcast you knew how good Andy Dalton is random. So that's important I mean. Did you guys see last week. He's got the job done I know and it's almost like on a podcast. Someone said Have Josh. I mean do you think Adam said that or he kind of backtracked goal is to take. He's been higher on Dalton than we have in some of the Franken's W is an enormous sign. We Nice about it. Speaking of quarterbacks Josh made sure we got this on the show Russell Wilson is not good on. miked up. Josh please your case on why this is the case. Is that no one. None of the other teammates paid paid him any mind like they just act like well. It's probably true that he's just doing this all the time like he's just constantly making making noise and they they don't even react to him like he's fine. What he's doing is totally fine but nobody seems to care he white white noise? He kinda sounded like a motivational speaker from the nineteen fifties of right man. Come on guys. Let's go a hundred percent yet. He he he. Is that guy though. I mean this is the same guy a couple years back at magic water. Like we forget about this level of Russell Wilson. But then he he gets. Mike's up again and people were like you had a little is a little weird is a little quirky. But he's also like He. He reminds me of those. I mean he's like that. That's sort of like personal development mindset of like you just you have to keep your mind completely positive the whole time and honestly it's getting a lot of flack but it makes me curious like being in an environment like that if that is helping that team Gel if that sort of mindset. That sort of positivity is is helping the team Gel and I think some of its editing because when I first saw like some of the clips online Elon and stuff. I thought that he didn't know his players names and be like you could cut three two three two two four two four two during good. The Guy you're the guy to four and it's just like this corny stuff where all he knows like the numbers but then you I've seen other clips now where he's calling Chris Carson. Chris were saying you know cajal penny after. He scored two touchdowns. Yeah I mean. He's a little corny. But I think that's who Russell Wilson is like. I mean I never think he was anything else. I mean it may be why we're shopping as good a football so that's not too hard. It's I mean it could be a a huge the Jews it could be. Where pens businessman positive reinforcement? Yeah I mean come on. It's not Reagan. Russell Wilson. Too Bad guys. He's a good football. I played great football player. He's got a beautiful why he's got happy families. Doing great man maybe talked about around the house like that to come on. Let's go let's go all right guys up he was. Ah guys this drive we started. Why not this drive right here? I'm like all right. Maybe yeah that'd be fun. Yeah I don't know. They sound like him up every week. Let's make it a thing. The jars have to deal with it every week. How do they choose that? By the way. Is there any reason why they choose who they make up like. Every quarterback Iraq is buying to release probably or something. Yeah Gotcha all right. The last thing I wanted to get to here because it may greatly affect my teams. I haven't heard any updates. Dates Davin Cook was hurt in his last game. My fantasy championships definitely depend on this guy. It's a big deal. If he's really hurt I duNno. has anyone heard any updates on the seriousness of the injury is he's it not very. Did you not practicing listens interesting. He okay so Galvin could came out after the game and this is post game press conference and essentially said that he could have returned to the game and sat out of precaution. Caution I was not aware fumes practice today so we should verify that he was limited so I say he didn't practice. Yeah but limited on a Monday to as well. I'm sorry not Monday but a day after a team plays kind of our. I'm sorry today's Wednesday Wednesday is another other day. We're players get limited a lot so I don't know update on listen. PROFOOTBALLTALK has an article up says Whatever it is cook says he'll be back in action on Sunday against the Lions I feel good? Cook said Wednesday via Vikings Dot Com. Actually better than I expected. I'll be out there Sunday. Ready to get it w so I feel much better now that we've gone now through this. The other guys I e worked through that with my favorite my friends around. Give me through this dark moment. I didn't want to have another David Johnson. Moment on my hands here so Because an amazing match up this week against Detroit too so yeah that's phenomenal is beautiful all right so Donald Cook every one big deep breath were okay all right. Let's move over a to trust issues. We're going to start with a running back. Who Adam was just talking about a moment ago Darwin Thompson and the trust issue? Who is Darwin Thompson leading the candidate Backfield touches in fourteen to trust that or do we have trust issues and says Adam felt pretty strongly about it? Let's let him start. Yeah I mean it's serious. Trust Issues I. I don't know we'll be second in touches like I think it's going to come in and he's probably GonNa get more touches than Thompson and if McCoy is healthy again he's definitely getting more touches so I think everything's moving in the wrong direction for him so I'd be. I'd be very surprised. I do not feel confident. Starting him in any fantasy format someone who bought a lot of human dynasty man. I sure hope it changes ranges course. Next year is aren't dollar bills on him and basketball and regards to touch this year. I don't know who's the Backfield I think he doesn't really matter too much because the Patriots don't feel good about any of these guys against Patriots so and to be honest. Patrick Mahomes hasn't been that amazing as of late so I'm really concerned with them against Patriots. Like all their players so I guess we'll see how that plays Josh. Do you feel good about him. Leaving the back there now now i. I'm pretty much just done with. Begins to do backfield at this point unless Spencer ware comes out and gets eighty percents touches. You know maybe then. Then he's the guy but tell me that I'm I'm I'm not starting to any of these guys. Yeah it's one of those crazy things in football could happen so we'll see the next one. James White a cancel. We spoke about who saved atoms. Best Ball career this year. James White is a playoff rb. One Trouser Trust Issues Josh. I you know it's hard for me to. I think that this is GonNa be sustained production but I'm glad that happened. I I'm going to be starting James. Why in a league this week? I think that he's going to be closer to his baseline of like fourteen points. But it's definitely encouraging aging that he got twenty five then didn't even score a touchdown. You know. Eleven targets eight receptions. Maybe maybe the exact all right game script just needs to hit for James White and may not do that again. I'm glad to see it happen. Yeah I feel like you could trust James White when the gains matter. Adam new agreement Freeman from like a football perspective. Sure but from like a fantasy perspective. I mean it's interesting like the wave. The the questions do you trust to be a top twelve back from here on out top twelve each week. You probably need team or I. I think James White's floor is just below that like what he did on. The season is so crazily consistent up until the last three weeks that like he was between eleven and thirteen points for the first eight weeks of the season and then a week nine heads sixteen points so like in week. Eleven nine points. It's all within like The smallest standard deviation possible for like any player and then he has zero in thirty seven. It's it's so ridiculous honestly to go from being consistent to just completely just disappearing in a game and dominating the next week so personally I think that yeah I mean. It should normalized formalized again based on everything we've seen and just from off perspective like he's GonNa keep getting targets and it's weird. They're not transitioning donate to running the ball because they haven't been able to have sustained leads and we haven't the other week now this week. They're playing at home which is great that they're playing against Kansas Kansas City. Who probably can keep up with them in a back to back game so I don't think it's going to be a situation where they're going to be able to run the clock down? Which means James James What's going to be on the field and James is going to be a target so like I think he's kind of one of those guys that you gotta approach on week to week basis throughout the playoffs but this week I'm starting? Yeah Yeah I would say. Even if you don't trust as of rb one in the playoffs you should just trust James White Mike to be who he is and I mean no one can put it better than Adam who said he is crazily easily consistent crazily consistent so no I'd scarf Shane's white t atom crazily consistent. Let's move onto drew lock and whether he holds a job until week one of the twenty twenty season trust or trust issues. I I trust personally second round. Pick second round pick by elway. He'll get his shot man. I mean he has decent weapons. They're gonNA you know I don't know. I just always such a such frustrating person but quarterbacks man I don't know I feel like I feel like I trust it if I had to choose. I trusted crested. I'm not crazy about it. I'm not crazy about him. Even I mean if you're like into QB dynasty the You definitely should have them if you if you don't don't like get rid of him or anything but yeah I mean I trust week one twenty twenty I do. Why shouldn't I- Josh? He does like Fitz John elway model of stand tall throw far. So there's that and they did win the game. Even though it was on a Brandon McManus kick. They won the game and if that keeps happening he he probably keeps the job. Even if it's not because I don't think he did anything special. You know you had a negative completion. Presented never expectation in his first game out but he managed manage to keep keep Portland's DIPLO I. I think I think he could do it. I don't trust it to happen. I wouldn't like trade for him as a player that will be worth the first in a year. Yeah I mean who am I to argue Cortlandt Sutton. He said he came in and he played with some confidence in some swag. It was awesome to see and put it together. What he put together he could be the future? He has the potential to be that guy for a long time here. I mean how can argue it as receiver receiver man. Yeah I think that's like the perfect statement about because he didn't say anything definitive this could happen. I mean his performance was great for rookie. Debut the question of whether or not he's going to be the starter next year coming into week one. I mean I don't I don't see Denver. Drafting somebody so real really. The question is is Denver. GonNa be in the free agent market trying to acquire quarterback and and I mean they are franchise that I could see go after somebody in free agency again but after just bringing flacco it makes me curious. I think there's real potential that a true lock is just the starter that they were out there. I mean the only issue is it doesn't really give them a failsafe if he fails 'cause I I don't see them. Drafting a quarterback early and see them or trying to acquire one at free agency but if they do that then he's not going to be the starter so I don't or not like him being the started just gives them no safety net so I think they probably bring up that if they bring innovate like Mariota than he's a backup drew lock for a week for one week of his not very confident fast. I Know Josh would love it I just I would. I would not mind MARIOTA IN DENVER. I was thinking case. Keenum Nice case keenum would turn that team undoing. Eight and eight team. That's right. John elway likes right there on the spot. Alright the next one where he mastered leads is the San Francisco Backfield in touches in week fourteen. I think he could do it I think he could do. This is out of all of these. This is the one that I would be like if I've got on my bench. I'm probably just fire him up because the upsides there and he he has he has played. Well is played well better than the other two if you look at you know his efficiency Z.. So I think it could be. I think Shanahan might be the guy to say. Okay fine. You're the guy I mean. The numbers disagree right. I mean as far as like every single week they've had like up and down different guy as a number one. Well yeah like as far as Opportunity share that's been very back and forth but as far as like just performance based as numbers are actually out out playing the other two and it wouldn't surprise me if Shanahan just rolled it would shock me Shanahan. Just with everything we've seen from Shannahan is anti roll with it and they are destroying the league that way. So I think they're going to continue to rotate backs. I think he'd have not rotating backs is always just based out of necessity and unfortunately they've had had a ton of health issues so they had to have games like this and ironically when almost anyone on that team gets a lot of touches they have a huge game fantasy so to me most of it comes completely down to is read. h-how limited. IS HE GONNA be if they have have him starting or I mean if they have him playing so you know he's actually going to be active and they don't talk about him being limited. I'm concerned for most search. Just because I don't know would that touch share is gonNA look like however if they're going to emit Brita in any capacity yeah I think you almost stood out there and feel confident so we kinda trust them. There's just depends on the situation. I guess Josh Dress them atoms. Kinda like depends Brita. Plays in is good to go or not and like I said just like just looking at you know this. Season's history it. Just you know to be confident. Any one of these backs is just I. I duNNo. It's a shaky at best. I feel like you never know which one you're going to get and I really I don't really want to put that on my playoff seem mm-hmm really want to worry about that. I don't know who who is somebody that you would start over him. A you would feel more confident you when you know like you who's close close but you would feel better in the playoffs. I think I would probably still star like in Austin Laura Room but I'm not sure it really does that is I think that's a choice. I actually have James White Star James Lineup but we would start him over any of the KC AC backs. Let's put it that way. Yeah so it's kind of one of those situations it's one of those things is. Yeah we'll see how that one plays out all right. It's earning Patrick layered. Yeah I would definitely say I'm over Patrick layered we're GonNa get this show. Burn to the ground these people here this not gonNA. It'd be happy with US her. How the last what we have here for trust issues rubber woods and robber would be in the rams most targeted Wi- receiver arrested season? This is another thing that I don't know this could go either way too. It seems like these guys get juggled around but you know the numbers of of late saying that we should trust. No I think it's the same thing as last one like the same situation as Moscow but just this is why receiver now. It does but I mean these last three weeks from Robert Woodson saying nine to eleven targets that nine targets targets than frigging nineteen targets last week like the there is using him in just in insane capacity. And it's so weird and I just wonder I wonder if Jared Goff just getting to the point where is uncomfortable. He's just locking in on Sunday. 'cause I mean that that's that seems like in Arizona the easiest passing matchup potentially in the League and he's given one guy nineteen. It's like it just seems like it's just log in so oh this week against Seattle. I don't see it being as friendly of the game scripts. I mean as far as if woods is going to get the most targets moving forward. I'd say I'd say probably I'd probably trust him to do that. Honestly but the quality of those targets is what would be kinda nervous about Because I think if you know if they're negative game script which the probably going to be Seattle. We've seen with Jared Goff unfortunately it can sly really negative and if he has one of those games Robert Woods is you know he's GonNa Crush your fantasy team. I must say this for Old Jared Garf- Dr They played Sierra leak. Five and zero hurries bird recovered rewarded for that game. So maybe maybe maybe he gets another. I feel like that's what it is. If you can pressure Jared Goff. He will part but I don't know that Seattle is GonNa they do that. He's Derek Carr like I honestly like seventy five percent quarterbacks in the NFL are are basically. I put a little pressure on them in the whole thing. Shit everybody's trash under pressure except for like five guys exactly. Oh Man. Those five guys are so good they really are. It's one of those things where you're a fan of any other team. Besides one of those guys teams. You're like mass sucks like US watching. Those guys are way better than our quarterback and we know it. Oh Man all right. That's it for trust issues. Let's move over to rankled Wrangham. Wrangham Wrangham rank them for the first category. We have not quite trustworthy running backs Wrangham. As if you've got to stardom for week fourteen somehow Rishaad penny is found his way onto this list as well as David Montgomery and Mile Sanders so he got shy. Penny in. There was some rookies heavy rank. Madam will don't think Reshad Penny should be included on this but in foregoing to he's last so let's just get out. I mean realistically like they're going to continue to split carries there. It's it's a situation where I mean. He's GonNa continue to work but it's going to be limited capacity and he's going to have better game scripts so like I mean there's definitely past past the successor and what he's done. The last two weeks cannot be ignored so so like to me honestly all through. These guys are super close by as much as I want to hate on penny like the situations great. He's on the best team of the three. So he's going to be in the most positive game script like there's a lot of factors that point positive direction for Him Mile Sanders. I mean. He's getting the most work that he's gotten in penny still producing them. So like I as much as I WANNA be confident model centers other incompetent mile sanders all year. He's not done anything so to feel confident in him. What he's finally being productive feels exciting? Xining but if you look at what. We're shy pennies done over the last two weeks with the potential of Jordan Howard coming back like I feel like I put penney ahead of Sanders and then you have the question of David. Montgomery I find myself wanting to put Rashad Penny at the top of this list and it it it almost hurts me. It really does too because you know Josh might have been right and they might continue to give him work and with all three of these guys seeing limited roles and really mile sanders getting work in the passing game which alike. But I feel like he's most likely to have his touches regrets this week. If Jordan Howard comes back did Montgomery's situation where I I don't think I can be confident him at all because unless the bears a really positive game script. He's pretty much useless. So I think for me it's Rashad any any and then miles. Sanders lended Montgomery Man. This is an interesting group because you know Yeah Mile Sanders Penny who are both really explosive and can make plays into nowhere. I mean Mal Sanders. Had I think one hundred yards last week overall. Yeah Rolling and then Montgomery had had a decent week like one of his better weeks and he's playing Average run defense. It's a cold cold weather game right so I mean I feel like which he could you kind of leaned on but for some reason I don't know Montgomery is like my last one here. I just I don't know why I put him last but I feel less confident and like a big play happening from him and so I would man you put sanders last. No I put Montgomery okay. Yeah I feel he penny and in Sanders could be switched on and off your whoever you know you just want to roll the dice on But man I kind of like the Eagles are at home against has the giants standard senators phrase. It's tough I mean for me really comes down to Jordan. Howard if Jordan Howard plays I feel like you gotta go penny if Jordan? I'm Howard is out again. I think I think I'd go. Sanders says well and exactly how I see it. If Howard is out sanders it becomes the number number one guy because he offers everything. I think a penny offers as far as like being active in the passing game being explosive but his workload safer is now the worst part is guys we're not gonNA know began. Sanders plays the night game. Oh yeah that's GonNa be that's annoying you take your shot Yemi unless they get in early announcement on Jordan Howard status. That said. It's GONNA be tough. I guess you know is important. Mentioned Jordan Howard has been cleared for contact yet He hasn't played since week nine. But like you said. They don't play until Monday night. So you know it's possibility. I guess you know it. I feel like you. You know it's one of those things either banking on our being out or not. You know whether you want to that risk. I guess but I think I would take the risk. I mean if he hasn't been cleared for contact it's going to be pretty evident. Didn't within a day or two and then we're recording this on Wednesday so if you listen to this on Friday you probably already know by now. Jordan Howard is going to be bland or not practicing. Addison he very well could be playing if he's still sitting out them. There's just no way. Sanders Penney Montgomery unless Howard plays and we flat penguins anders all right Hot In coli receivers rank him again as if you gotta start a week. Fourteen we have Amari Cooper Tyler Lockett who we do not sound very confident about earlier in the episode and Dj Charq an interest in aim in this group US We go this woman. I ah I I'm sitting. I'm GONNA sit Tyler Lockett until I see him do something because I think he's hurt. And we've said that already With with Mitsubishi back in charge Kennedy is very interesting. Amari Cooper had a big game so oh between the two of those. I Trust address tomorrow more than I do. Dj Charge I. Would I would play a play Amari. I bet plant Chicago. And that's not a great matchup Jacksonville as an has also has not a great match up against the chargers. I I'M GONNA GO Amari Shark. Lock it twice. Yeah I I agree with that order. I think it has to be that way unless Adam has a reason is a not too. But I just think Amari Cooper gets so much love in Dallas. We know he's GonNa get targets and charge. We don't know if he's GonNa get targets. It's one of those things where it could be targets could be eight. You know you never know what talks yet. So it's like or perceptions as So it was like you never know you. You Know Cooper is a pretty sure Sherbet as far as like he's GonNa get attention and the offense so I feel like Cooper for sure then shark than lock you because as of our concerns. I'd be curious. Adam has at any differently. I mean you guys should be right but D J truck. I mean Menchu's coming back like I feel like things are lining up for him in a good position and for me. There's there's always this weird feeling with players who who play on Thursday night. And I always err on the side of caution with them and I just I mean I think with Amari Cooper like I. I don't think anyone be shocked if he disappointed so for me. I I don't know I. I honestly think I put shark at the top if I had to make the starting decision between Kuperberg Burn. Dj Chart Like Kat. It'd be tough but I think I'd WanNa go DJ dark. I love it. I Hate Amari Cooper as a person as a human being I hate. AM says lead and silver glasses. Be Honest Right. Let's just be honest over here. That's what we do log dodgers so right so you charcoal room I love it. I hope you're right but you know what I'm giving this advice atom. I just got a pay cooper but and I hope you're right. I hope you're right. It's fucked up but I hope you're right all right The next one last one we have for Wrangham next season stud most likely to be next. Next season's Stud devante Parker Tyler Boyd. Aj Brown how do we put these in order. I'm jumping out here and I'm GonNa go with Parker First Baby devante Parker number one on this list. I know everyone is booming. Right now I know Adams is guys fucking crazy off his rocker. And a you WanNa Taylor Boyd. I know Josh wants a brown. I guarantee I'm right about that. I let's see I Parker Boyd Brown. Let's see what you guys guys got and this is why this questions fun right. I mean we got one guy one horse in the race I mean yeah. I think we're all gonna stick with our horses. I think Tyler Boyd is my favorite of this group. I mean I love all three of these guys next year I really do. I honestly think all three could be the lead wide receiver other team I think devante Parker breakout. Is Israel a main in that is crazy after five years and every year every year every single year people are touting him and fantasy and people were doing it this year here too. I mean I remember early. Best Ball drafts. That people talk about him. I think todd todd from P. A.. Talking about him and it was just like I felt felt like I was being in my head against the wall. I don't understand how people keep going after him year after year. He's finally done it. And my only concern for him for next year is no Ryan Fitzpatrick. And I think that. That's a real concern. Because Ryan Fitzpatrick does crazy things too wide receivers and he has them produced in ways that they don't produce otherwise so unless Miami figures out the quarterback position which. I'm not confident. I don't think I can put him at the top of this list and AJ Brown. I'm in with him. Growing and with Prion Tanna hill looking like just so confident I honestly I. I think we might see a brown start to blossom here in this playoff. Run Ron and I don't know I mean I think that next year him and Parker are going to be really close for me I think I'd probably still stick with Parker. Just because he's he's he's been. No actually no. You know what I'm Gonna I'm GONNA go aging. Yeah I know I. It's one of those things where like there's too much for Parker that just makes it seem potentially fluky and Related Ryan Fitzpatrick like I love for me wrong because it's a cool story but a AJ Brown. I just feel more confident with this sort of performance as a rookie. In what I think better franchise at our scheme and with a quarterback who to me seems like somebody. I feel competent and next year whereas with Miami ed I just don't see any confidence. And it's so funny. Is that quarterback. You're talking about was Devante Parker quarterback quarterback for years. And it's crazy right. It's crazy this works and I I even had in exile. I had Parker and Albert Wilson our Robert Wilson. He kept Parker. So I feel about that because I will. Wilson has another in. Parker is gone off as a haven. There were so many people on Albert will shoots Zip and that's why I moved him because nobody wants Parker. I still believe a little bit sound. Like I'll move Wilson and keep order like whatever I'll key one of the two and hopefully not I I even I'm going to cement this even more because devante parker breakout has been directly linked to pressing Williams getting injured like he was doing stuff before then but not anything like the breakout that he's had sense. And I think that man it very well could be related Ryan Fitzpatrick Slash Preston and Williams and and just you know consolidation or other. They're going to be a dynamic. Duo Miami with Marcus Mariota throwing some next year after Ryan Tannehill China. Who took his team? He's going back to his teammates. Kill it I basically put Marietta on every team at this point. It's like as as if he's only quarterback against this. I got like as someone who is still holding on to much Marietta. uh-huh Josh you put. Aj Brown here on your list. As I thought yeah yeah number one. I think the upside is there. I mean as a rookie. He is number twelve in the league. In annecy points ever expectation per day. I mean that's that's fantastic. That's exactly what you WANNA see. And then I would put tyler boyd sack because I think that is very good wide receiver but I think that we learned something about in the season. I think he is not a number. One is a is a audience number two and you know maybe he can keep this gallon. Maybe John Roskam back onto the field. Helps Tyler Boyd. A little bit but I just feel like we learn something about his ceiling this year. Sure and I afraid the devante Parker has many good seasons as Jimmy world add albums deigned. Monday Parker. They still don't believe in you bro. You shocked the world and it's still don't believe in your man and they still don't WanNa believe in you crazy Wendy Ryan Tannehill. Takeover tightened what we no like ten. I'M GONNA guess I'm kind of curious now because I'm looking at. Aj browns game log. I'm just curious where ten ehealth started there. Yeah I'm sure that it has something to do with that. He started which guards game which which game earlier than I he had twenty nine attempts in week seven sixteen in week six probably like took the reins in weeks week six. They named him the starter the next week so the chargers would have been there his first full game probably from that point forward. Ad Brown had six receptions for sixty four yards no touchdowns Two receptions for eleven yards and a touchdown four receptions for eighty one yards no touchdown one reception seventeen seventeen yards no touchdowns four for one thirty five and a touchdown and then three for forty five yards and no touchdowns so if McConnell like up and down but uh-huh Mariota was there. He had one hundred yard game. He had a two touchdown game. So I mean he can't flash guys. That's a good thing right. I mean it's not quarterback depending on I yes at least. I don't expect to consistency for a rookie. Artsy anything. Yeah yeah all right. That's fair like we all stuck talk to our guys. Now whole season couldn't change. His whole season couldn't change his all right cool. Let's move over two lakhs of the week last week. Josh One. Unfortunately with WHO Josh Rishaad right name this is one of those moments that not happy about it but you pulled it Offman and because you want is this. You're GONNA row now. Adam had signed candidate. Damn no one's had back to back weeks yet. I I know what Neil has done in back to back to back back to back to back to back weeks pick guy one week early and once again again pick somebody who scored less than five fantasy points. You know what this the week you might week early stops. 'cause They Jones ain't doing shit next week this week. I'm all out on the raiders. If anyone has been aware yet. Unless you're Josh Jacobs go fuck yourself Oh and Darren. Waller's will otherwise Hawaii funky raiders for another season for me My Flex Lot. Well let's go. Justice looks like in the week since he won. So did you just get the honor of stealing stealing our guy I all right. I like that I like that. I'm going with Zach Pascal. So the colts are out of players era. Gabriel you've heard everyone heard otherwise. Eric Brown t y Hilton Devon Fudges. You know all of their guys and in in their wake that Pascal Tin Tin targets last week it ever roughly for that with only one but seven six six targets. We know it has ceiling. He has these blow up Games next week. If I'm not mistaken there blanda bucks and that'll work work so jack. Pascal lucky meant as an underdog in a playoff matchup. Your six seed in. You've got Zack. Pascal MOCCA men Adam GonNa give you the honor stealing guy in case you have them so go ahead I doubt it must sheer piggyback Beckenham. My favorite team for one set A. You're you're good old raiders but Yeah I'm I'm going with little home cooking here and I really like what Anthony Militia doing lately for the bears in. He's someone who you know. After being injured last year I just I I I really felt like if he could put it all together. The heat yet potential to be something special and over the last three weeks I mean they've been targeted heavily heavily. Eleven targets nine targets thirteen targets in last week. I mean it was on Thanksgiving. Everybody's watching and he just had a gigantic performance and I honestly think that they're going to continue to target him heavily and with them playing on Thursday night. There's definitely risk involved because you never know. Hud teams are GONNA show up on Thursday is trubisky and I don't know how trubisky's ever GonNa show up especially in a tough match-up against Dallas but all that being said like I just think that the targets are there the volumes there he. He's a fantastic player. So I'm interested to see what he's able to deal. And Yeah I feel confident. In this week array array all right. I Know Josh likes him too. So Josh secretly rooting for you as well. Yes and actually in a pickle guy that Josh likes also so and we just got done talking about my flex log Luik is AJ round. He's really matters. You wait with Jay Brown. He's he's playing the raiders. And if I didn't say it yet. Fuck the raiders. He's playing the raiders. He's GonNa Crush fairweather fan. America's very frustrated. I know it's okay dude. We all do. This is going to happen except for you. There are cars like oh two weeks ago we were one of the stories in the League now. Two weeks later we suck. We'll be right AM I. Yeah sure okay yeah. I'm sure we will so yeah. Aj Brown is in town. And and I feel like they're playing this story. The League sorry didn't want to steal your thunder. Go Tennessee so yeah. Aj Brown. I think is do well against the raiders. I I see no reason why he shouldn't do. Well there's nobody there to stop him He has all the tools and we talked about it even with the up and down weeks even with you know targets being low sometimes or receptions however you WanNa look at it. I still think he'll have a good week. Does Not GonNa take a lot to have a good week on. The raiders are susceptible to the big plays. And I just think I think he's is GonNa do well man so. Ag Brown pick so a brown Pasco Miller Pretty Good Group there. I'm excited I think I actually have a chance to actually my first week with a chance. Maybe I might have another. DFS week where play. All three of our picks do silence edit big Did terrible because nails pick up to know wasn't either deals pick stinking inquiry Davis indeedy. Wessberg got me like zero points. I'll funds though y'all played in defense and a quarterly I gotcha Gotcha. That's that's where trash. That's where I trust your please all right so I feel good about it. Let's go let's move over to fowler no foul. CNN recently ranked ranked cookies for National Cookie Day. So oreos are the best cookies you could buy in a grocery store foul or no foul. I'll in a grocery store has to be. That guys can understand things but like the Saab did the chocolate chip soft ones chips of leg in the red package. Yup legit might be a hot sake but I think all store bought cookies bad. That's definitely a bad. I take hot it is yeah I I honestly I was just trying to find out. I'm I'm about to Google. I'm going to start looking at packages and I'll find something I I would actually eat but Yeah now if it's not homemade Almost no interest. I also like those cookies girl Scout. Once Kinda goes to those count store Bruce we could not not not the girl scout ones but they say other brands so those okay okay. Yeah that that I'd say it's it's legit like I. I've had off brand thin mints before the. Yeah they're pretty good and josh the chew ones they got some of their flavor retaliates. Moore's and stuff man you got some good ones know some good ones. You gotta give them shot but orioles right up there Oreo said like it on CNN. The like it was hands down like are you surprised to see this here you know people like to Duncan with milk and lick off the frosting. And isn't that but orioles are in bad. I mean yeah. They're good. I can only get eight three four or front of me. I'm looking at all these cookies. And none of them seem appetizing. But I do WanNa drop have either. Have you guys had around a brutal. I haven't Check it out. It's in the same aisle. It's essentially. They're like Brownie crisps and and They have one. That's salted caramel. And I think it's the most amazing thing that's more my jam as far as Cookies go. I'm looking at a ton of brands ear and and I am not interested in any of that. So yeah hot take I took you as a Nilo Wafer Guy. I don't I honestly don't know if I've ever had don't do. It doesn't sound like baby teeth having grown in. I'll eat those two men I know you. Yeah of course you would. What won't Josh Eat? Honestly besides meet healthy good style you know what shoutout famous Amos cookies. I you see those when I was younger and they remind me of being a kid. So I'll if I if I had to buy something I think that was the store bought cookie. That would probably stalled you there for you. I respect it all right. This week will be. Eli Manning's last football start start ever in the NFL Fowler. No foul no file. I think that could that could happen. Pretty easily yeah. Yeah I'M GONNA go with while you guys yeah. I think he probably retires after this year. Do you really think goes anywhere else now. I mean I don't think he wants to. I mean maybe he does. Maybe maybe he doesn't like how it ended and he wants to you know who's giving him a shot dot. Let's be honest. I put Marietta on every single team so far so either has no spot in the league but I mean how. Do you think Slayton GonNa do Mary Whitman in this week. Is that a good or a bad thing. I I'm I'm guessing at this point Manning's career he probably also doesn't work cheap so that's probably gonNA limit who is interested in master. All Right Saraj tried to give you a last Hurrah but these guys WANNA give. They don't even like to Parker anymore. So what do you expect you. I'm sorry alright vis got started by a user on twitter named at. I WANNA say Yana Burt why a in a RT pronounce it but Asking it here. They they said or she said you should acts for consent via text prior to Sharon unpleasant news with your friends fowler no foul. It's so interesting I read this and my immediate reaction was Oh. That's a really nice thaw and then I thought about getting that taxed it would freak freak me the fuck out hell. Yeah like I think if you have a rapport with a friend where you already have like this. This idea of you know consent built in you have like a very. I don't know like personal development. Ask relationship with someone where you both like whole each other accountable and stuff if you have one of those relationships and this doesn't seem weird maybe but I think for your average friendship your average relationship. All all this is going to do is inducing anxiety and if you have to tell someone something like we live in a culture now where everyone is like so afraid of upsetting or triggering someone else but like life is triggering. Everything out there is triggering existence is triggering like we can't protect ourselves from the reality that is life and I think sometimes if you have something hard to tell someone it's a lot easier to like alike. Trion not tell them any way possible. I don't necessarily think that was the intent behind that at all But for me personally I think yeah I'd rather have someone told me and I'll just deal with the repercussions of the news. Yeah I kind of feel like if anyone I mean most guys can relate to get in that text from a girlfriend or wife that says we need to talk. And that's it that's all it says you're like Oh shit what the fuck is about to go down and it's kind of like one of those like if you got. Hey can I have your consent to talk about something like what the fuck it about to happen here. Maybe I don't WanNa give you my concern now. You're scaring me. Yeah me it's one of those kinds of things. So that is kind of weird man. Josh what is your fatherly husband. Feel on this one. I feel like nobody ever asks me if I want consent it just hit new. It'd don't scare me I. It is scary. There is something about that. Fear that that that fair warning fears real. Oh man well because nothing's worse than the unknown so like that's the worst thing you can say no like if so unfiltered they have something unpleasant that you feel you're obligated to say yeah otherwise you're the guy and shut down. That only works in a relationship. We've already built up that rapport yet yet. Hurston knows like Oh okay. That's just means I tell them in a little bit. We're like the let me know when to tell them but like the average person just hasn't built that report so that would seem very odd. Yeah Nygren all right Not a Fowler Alba. Just questions for you guys. Anyone seeing the Irishman yet. Why why would anyone waste their time? I don't understand this. That's why I WANNA get into it. Josh have you seen it. I saw it on the Netflix Menu. I probably will watch it soon. Okay well I will say this from my perspective. I'm not going to spoil anything. It's not a great movie in my opinion and I have to. I say that because I feel like everyone is trumpeted up as a great movie So it's not a great movie. The stories cool on my enjoy the story. Obviously the actors are all actors and stuff. I like a little too long for it to be a slow as it is in my opinion and I'm not and I couldn't get what I the there's like. CGI in in it to make all these old actors young at certain moments in the movie. I can't deal with it like let's say there's a scene where Deniro is he's fighting a guy and he looks like eighty year old Deniro fighting a guy makes but he's not supposed to be eighty year old Deniro Neuro- fighting a guy. It looks ridiculous. It looks absolutely ridiculous and I'm like how did this get. How like this is bad as starbucks? Cup Game of thrones like it shouldn't can happen like someone had to have seen this before like why this does not look right so Yes some things kind of bothered me but the story itself was cooled in. Obviously I've read up. I would do this thing where I after I watched it. I read when and if it's a movie at about a story at sort of real I try to see what's real about it and some of it sounds like it's a lot of fake stuff for not real or not confirmed I guess you would say But Yeah it's a good movie a good story great actors which is the CI Thursday off. And I feel like it's a little too slow pace. I just feel like the you know the director. You know this big time direct. Everyone loves his movies. All the actors are great so like everyone's like giving him more credit than it deserves. But that's just in my opinion. I'm curious when when Josh at either wanted to watch it. What you're taking so definitely let us know when you come back if you ever see if you ever finish watching it? I'm just curious that's all I'll let you know. Also I had a popeye's chicken sandwich guys and it was great just for the record if since we're talking about trendy things right now but I will say I'm not a fan of thick me pause. Not other thing me so what I did was actually. I'm so weird I feel like I'm definitely a weird dude dude but I actually sliced a chicken sandwich in half like not made a sandwich half a sandwich I literally cut it the other way. Like what would you call that. uh-huh than the base. Yeah I slice it open by butterfly and then put it still put on the sandwich but like not on top of each other. Nothing so as I still flat all way across and it was good it was good not gonna live and I couldn't really idea because that's my biggest problem with like the chick-fil-a sandwich me at to have the Papa Sandwich. But they're basically the same sandwich but I've heard from a lot of people that the Popeye's ones better so I'll I'll get around to it. I thought it was better. My wife didn't care for it as much ally butterflied at managed changed the game for it. So you got to do that. You definitely gotta go that route. All right Show Intel. Oh did he didn't want to bring anything to the class today. To show Intel for the group. I just saw this and this is the most mess up. Bang that I've seen all day and that is the wide receiver who was catching passes from Colin Kaepernick gotTA NFL job. As seen the headline. I didn't click on at At the hands of watching the troll issue here how evil Adams Laugh. It's so evil it it is. I mean my laugh was evil because what they're doing is evil. It's just oh my God. I didn't know that was happening. Thank God but he is on Washington's team now s crazy. Do you know his name. No of course Visi okay well sheltered Jordan visa and I Dunno you think he called Cabernet governing before he took the job with a gay man says cooler I I would imagine. They talked probably end. I read also imagined that Colin Colin Kaepernick is not in the NFL partially because of his own terms and conditions. So I don't think it's so horrible. Yeah that's fair shows hopefully as a hopefully has some success. Talk you say Adam Guy Anyway you know. The only thing thing was thinking about was a over the weekend I had tweeted something out after a string of conversations happened on twitter regarding like music again like music timeframes and I tweeted out if you could remove or if you had to remove one of the following decades and never listen to that music Agai- which decade would you pick of the sixties seventies eighties nineties and and it was wild. How even the responses were and then for at the end of it the sixties is to be the one that was voted on the most people would get rid of it? It just seem flabbergasted at me like I honestly thought going into it when I posted that at the sixties would be the one with the least because I think a lot of people like define music starting like the music we listen to today started in the sixties sixties it started with people like Jimi Hendrix revolutionizing what is rock and roll. And you know there was so many things that were birthed out of the sixties that it seems seems so weird. I don't know I mean to me like personally I I would throw with eighties in a heartbeat like when I posted that that was for me. Just such an obvious answer but it's been so fascinating to see like everyone's different takes on what they would get rid of why I Dunno like it's weird. The music the people sincere and leading ticket attached to and also the old people hot takes in the comments with like like other rid of the music today. You probably hear that more than anything react. When I first saw that I thought was just because it's the furthest just away and I felt like they're practically on a new ways that then the more I thought about like the actual music from that era in the eighties slurs allowance quality? All I thought about was keep the ninety s in English nothing else. That's what from you in. The nineties jumped doubt to be like. Yeah that that I need to keep all like all of us. All that had a standout was total. Request live trl. That's wrong. Aw Man Alright Transition Mad as a kid. I used to every single day when I got home from school watched two it was so good. Ed Carson data shot out the Carson Daley man shot out lose social part of our child for. Oh Yeah. Did you come away with any reason why you picked the most. As far as the least wanted was just because he was the oldest like that what you think honestly I mean the pull four hundred and fifty votes so like my first thought when I saw it was all right will maybe just the majority of people that are voting are younger and the younger you are the more connected you are to more recent music but like take. I don't know it just. It still seems so odd to me. Like when I was growing up the sixties were thought of is like the the golden birth. Yeah so for that like to not be the case in just twenty years years later like it seems so weird seems so weird. But I don't know I mean that that's the only thing that makes sense to me to meet like it's just such a good question. It's so interesting because I felt like it had such an obvious answer and not only was that not the most popular answer but literally seventy five percent of people said something outs so like. I don't know it's it's interesting. I think like different genres to really play into that. Like if you really a huge fan of hip hop op like the nineteen nineties. Probably all you really care about maybe the eighties but like part of that. You're GONNA have like you know deep influences but nothing. That sounds like any music today so I get it from that perspective But Yeah I don't know definitely didn't expect the results. The happened the nineties definitely that like right age. You know where the nineties music will is. Probably the most important to me can like Michael Jordan will. Who is the best basketball player ever? But I also think it's the the decade where you get so many different genres of of music had really good music. That's yeah and a lot of people in the comments. Were like talking about music today. Being awful and I think it's so silly because I feel like that's such a It's like an old person mentality because when you think of the music today if you think awful it's because you're only consuming coming awful music because you're probably just mostly listening to whatever they're playing on the radio and it's like music now changed because the Internet to be this all Expansive thing and like there's more music now than ever before probably because there's more access and they're more people who are able to create so to say that music today is awful is hilarious because it just means that you're not trying to find music that you like or you're just so stuck in your ways that like you're just automatically assuming before you even try to listen to things that it's going to be bad because there's so much music out there too like even have a perspective tip good or bad on the music today. Seems crazy and it's so much easier to listen to like all these streaming services in other ways to just listen to do whatever you want you know you used to have to either deal with the radio or go buy a CD or record the tape on your radio like Recording Korea. Do you gotta hit that. Like reported play at the same kind of maneuver. That was good stuff I remember that and then when CD's became popular you would know the day they dropped. You'll be at the mall or a CD store. Every single time that week to buy new album I used to have like a book. I used to be a pride factor. You have a book full of CDs leave the city books. I got man you get in your car which will pick me. I look at all these CDs. I got Bro or burning all head and burden CDs. gave a hit. These are are selling them. Things want my mix might make the best Yeah Man Music has really evolved man. What a change? That was just all playlists playlist Silas and it's funny too because You know it happened so quick My younger siblings are three and a half in six years younger than me. Both of them have like no affinity for albums and I am such an album kid. It's very interesting. The difference like I feel like no one one. WHO's you know? Twenty five or younger cares about albums. Basically I mean obviously there are some exceptions but the majority of people they just got raised in this culture like on demand listening. I'M GONNA listen to that one song that I know that I like that. They don't listen to an entire body of work when like that's to me. The the most interesting thing about an artist is when I can put on an album and not have to skip us all right. I can listen to an album it. I like every single song. You're doing something really well. Yeah Yeah and the music industry has changed because of the because of the damn streaming Now now artists artists put out like forty songs at a time just because I was trying to get their stream numbers up say figuring album forty songs and there's all GonNa get played like crazy gang gang gang of money like that.

And if you cannot find hi this their research radio it's issues and you will find us. Welcome to the kingdom how we doing Kansas City. Welcome to kingdom radio. I'm your host Richard Smith and with me as always have my senior senior. NFL analyst and Co host Chris Chavez and Look Kansas City the chiefs take this game in the snow and make it nine in a row against against the Denver Broncos at a score of twenty three to three and it was really an exciting game from the start. Patrick Mahomes has play action. Pass to a forty one yard touchdown pass and the chiefs never really looked back. Chris what did you think of this game. Today I thought it was an incredible show of dominance by the chiefs. Offense and defense in this game like we talked about in the pre-game we need it for both sides to come into the game and play on a high level and even in the snow both sides did who was fantastic to watch. It really was a lot of fun to watch in. The elements did not snow slowdown. Patrick mahomes one bit seemed like yeah just put on the pedal the whole game went twenty seven for thirty four three hundred and forty yards two touchdowns and one interception which was on the one yard line and possibly could have had. He really could have three to four the three to five touchdowns. The cheese wouldn't a stalled out on a few drives in this game. But you know I wanna I WANNA touch base on on something something you know. The the hometown kid drew lock comes into Arrowhead and we had touch base on this before the pre game. Show Chris and we had stated that we we really thought that the platform was too big for drew. Lock and he wouldn't he wouldn't really you know have the output that he had in the previous previous two games and so Chris what did you think of you know our prediction and how it turned out. I think our prediction was spot on But he didn't have a lot of help from his supporting cast. Sudden dropped a lot of balls off target a lot as well well but He when he did get the ball where it needs to be his receivers were dropping the ball and weather. Yes and look the chiefs. Were getting pressure. Sure on him all game long and that's exactly what we wanted and what we needed it was. It was a Lotta Fun to watch the chief score back. Ah Touchdown Really Outta Gate and go up six to nothing. Because but Christmas the the extra point and then the chiefs add on a field goal and even at sitting at nine to nothing it felt like the chiefs had the dominance in this game. The defense continually shutdown Denver over and over and over and over and over again. What you know at the end of the first quarter? Whatever sitting nine to nothing? Chris how did you feel about that moving forward. I felt fantastic. I also felt like we should be by more but given given the the weather and having to play with a slower tempo. I understood we having nine points on the board but we should have had the fill. It should have been a touchdown we we just need to work on our red zone. Play calling because with as many times will be stalled out in the red zone this year. It's been rather frustrating but the game wise man. We felt fantastic at that moment in time. We we definitely have a game in hand at that point and yeah and it really seemed to feel that way. Denver just couldn't get anything rolling. Our defenses continued to get pressure and get pressure and grip get pressure. Forced lock into bad situations. Extend plays it. was you know it was uncomfortable for for drew. Lock Doc all game long. We took advantage of the weakened offensive line due to injury. That was nice to watch. It was yeah all around defensively pensively a great game travis. Kelsey eleven receptions. Excuse me eleven receptions a hundred and forty two yards how about that. Yeah that was Jeff. The key component on on offense for us G An in home offense had absolutely monster games he's There's only one of the guy that will win there as far as having monster game but on the defensive side but honey badger have himself gang today. I would have to agree with you now. I'm GonNa go ahead and let you introduce Travis Kelsey. We'll see as one of the best tight ends ever. But what what record to Travis Kelsey break today. I'll let you take that away. So with Chelsea's he's very I catch today in today's game blues for fourteen yards he broke thought the thousand yard mark for the season and he said a NFL record for most years with a thousand yards. At the Marco Four but not only did he break that mark for the number of career years with thousand yards in a ro did it consecutively. Yes will other tight end in. History has ever done that. The closest assist the only other guy who has was Greg Olsen who did it between two thousand fourteen and two thousand sixteen yes right and and so. Let's let's talk about this for a second because Chavis Kelsey has been a staple at the tight end position. And you know as been largely you. What's the right word for he's base? He's the best tight end of the game. And and so he's been really fortunate the longest career to have two great quarterbacks throwing the ball to him and it doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon you know how fortunate is Kelsey. You know during his career to come in when he did and have the quarterbacks that he has ended also the future the still looking at because I don't look for Kelsey to slow down anytime soon. kilty has been very fortunate to play with two quarterbacks who understand that they they need to utilize the tight end and in the offense and Chelsea's ability feel to get open to teaches inches basketball background. His knowledge as a quarterback has been very helpful for him The way that he Studies when he came into the League. He studied Tony Gonzalez. He studied Antonio Gates. The are far basketball players. Who transitioned transitioned to the position of tight? End and rather successfully He studied Rob Gronkowski. And his he's looking at what the greats do do and he emulates that and it's absolutely worked out for him he has become like you said the best tight end in the league right now and I would venture to say probably for the next several years while he finishes out the rest of his career. There's some good ones out there but I don't think they're going to be touching this record anytime now. He's he's really you know made a presence presence in the NFL. And like you said it's going to last here for a while. And he's got a quarterback that can get him the ball better than than any quarterback in the history of the League so those numbers are just going to continue to climb there. He's going to have monster numbers week in week out for the next four years or so. So Congratulations Travis Kelsey. That's a huge deal as a huge deal shows you the talent that we have here and chiefs kingdom so. Let's talk about the Mahomes to hill connection here. Because again you know mahomes throws two touchdown passes to tyreek Hill. Who really had more of A? I'd say a quiet day. I mean as crazy as that sounds but what what did you think of this. You know homes to hill connection here against the broncos it really was you know to the nail in the coffin to the Denver broncos. Yeah absolutely The first touchdown definitely set the tone for the broncos goes in and the chiefs really in this game tyreek ended up getting covered on the play and he cut inside and the safety Jumped out ahead of him and so he knew that with the safety covering the middle he can cut outside and he'll have all all that all the space to the sideline to catch the ball and as soon as he made that break Mojo's through it right or needs to be and he brought it in for the touchdown. It's it's a beautiful thing. This mahomes the hill combination. And it seems like all the great quarterbacks you you know the leave their mark all time they have that receiver and and so it's this is a combination that probably will not leave Kansas City for a long. Oh time but his blazing fast speed. He's such a great route runner and again you know. He shows the League that you can't touch him you get get him downfield. You'd get them behind. The defender is over with and Mahomes has a big enough armed. Put it right on the money every single time. And it's just a lot of fun to watch. So let's let's look at the defensive side of the ball and we'll talk about chiefs defense who's had nine takeaways. And the last three games. The thornhill had himself in interception Kind of runs through through that scenario Chris now on the on the plane before Honey Badger had himself through reception but yes we found an awful holding call on sugars word On the very next play eight lakh ends up throwing a Moonshot Trying to hit no offense in the the in zone two. I mean I hadn't. There was nothing wrong with the throw itself. No Fan ended up not being able to see the ball and thought the ball was going further. He overran the bomb right. He should have been coming back to the ball and high pointed apple So I I don't put that interception on lock actually put it on fan but Thornhill ends up being in the right position. He's underneath the throw and he just goes up. Grabs the ball comes down with it for the interception. It was a fantastic eh. Defense of plane being in the right position and holding onto the ball and there are plenty of great plays by the chiefs. Defense Vince. Nice e thornhill get an interception especially you know I would say rather pivotal point and also look you said the honey badger had a great game which he did himself a sack he also had himself interception. That was taken away and Alex folks Okeafor had himself a sack but also left the game with what was. What did you say a chest injury chest injuries? They're not having disclosed. What it is? Just you GOTCHA. And that's another thing we hate to see. We don't WanNa see any other injuries you know to to the chiefs. It's just been a crazy season so it seemed to be you know and this also seems to be kind of a kind of routine here for the chiefs to to sputter out here in the second half and the point. The point totals are pretty awkward if you if if you look at everything by standard it shows the box score. The chief scored six in the first nine in the second and third and zero in the fourth quarter but when it came down to locking this game in and we put it in the hands of our rushing game. We really put it on the shoulders. Spencer Ware Darwin Thompson. What did you think because we're looking at Spencer where it was seven carries for twenty six yards in Darwin Thompson for with with eight carries for thirty eight yards and dismal game again for the Shawn McCoy with six carries for sixteen yards? But as we we had discussed before we have you know obviously we have no running game and we also discussed the spark. The Dr Thompson you know gave the chiefs chiefs and you could feel it again today. Could you not absolutely I I definitely like the energy that he brings and every time that he runs. He's falling forward every time. Yes some he got. He got called for a rather pivotal title penalty early on in the game. or in the second half first-half excuse me Kelsey. Had I believe like a forty yard catch that got called back due to a Were they caught on a blocking a block in the back penalty on Or maybe as a crack crack back blocks. I'm not sure exactly which one it was I liked what hit the thought. Process there is. You know I'm GonNa hit this guy because he's going after your the ball carrier and I wanted to defend totally get that. But he made a rookie mistake in in Making that blocks simply because us. They're so far behind the plate. There is no way that that player is going to catch up to Kelsey. No on a huge play to. Yeah you know it is something that he's going to have to experience because in hell no next time okay. I'm just going to let this go on. I'm going to run with them. And if he ends up getting closer to Kelsey. Whoever the ball carrier is I'm just going to jump in front of them and And then blocked him or slow down just getting in his way. You know to be honest with you. It's it's one of those things that I feel like the. He wanted bad enough to where he was down there down the field trying to make a play. And I'll tell you what that's a lot more effort that I've seen out of our running backs thus far this this season I agree with you there. I haven't insist that sort of Effort from any of the running backs than we've had I definitely like what the Spencer where brought what s well into the pass game His blocking on the passing on the passing downs was fantastic. He was laying guys out. And that's definitely what we needed in in the past game Darwin Thompson came in even on passing plays. He's running out and he's looking for the past. He didn't always get get him every time but could have check down and gone some some additional yards as well. I really like what Where Thompson we're bringing in this game? It was fantastic to see and it just seems to be the Kansas City down the stretch were finding our one two punch and it it also goes to show that look. I'd I WANNA say that Leshan McCoy is washed up but I also so want to say in his favor that the chiefs have alternately. Have offense is built around a power our rusher and that's not Leshan McCoy and when you see power rushers like Spencer. Where and even Darwin Thompson with a small frame is still a power runner and you see the production that they're having with limited carries? Because if you look at the carries Lucia McCoy had six spent to aware had seven. Darwin Thompson had eight at the and. That's that's rush by committee all over it but if you take those three rushes away from the Shawn McCoy and give them to Spencer where Darwin Thomson. We could quite possibly have a game where we have over one hundred yards rushing. Yeah and honestly we were not that far away at all combined. We're sitting at ninety two yards for the game but that's also with eleven yard word. Carry by Patrick Mahomes. Yes so but I definitely think like you were saying you give those carries to To Wear Thompson and I think that we definitely break the hundred yard mark in the game. Those guys aren't scared to put their shoulder down. And that's something Leshan McCoy dances around finds is holes and our offensive. Line isn't built like that you have to get through. You've got a power through the offensive line and get to the second level and that's something shady McCoy does not bring to the table. He's had a brilliant career. He's not right for the system. He's a little old and we need production back there because we're leaving points on on the field and that's what drives me crazy and me and you touch base on this a lot because it's happening weakened weak out we get into the red zone and we can't punch the ball in the reason why we can't can't punch the ball in his because we're one dimensional. We have no rushing attack. There's no team the league that scared to line up against Shawn McCoy and the Kansas City chiefs. You put Darwin Thompson or spin software. And they're somebody who is a power back who will run through you and run through the second level then you instill some fear and you can make your your red zone to three dimensional. Yeah what I will also say and this is probably going to be the one a few times for actually defending McCoy on on this point. Is this his first year with with this off of lying and generally to be successful so you kind of have to have Some understanding of where how. You're blind in the block for you. Where do you expect the holes to be and they all I have to stand as a as the running back? Where do you want us to open up the holes can? What do you want you and W The key points points of bringing back Spencer where it has been aware has that understanding of the offensive line as that familiarity which allowed him to come in. And I'll see nestle thrive but to to be successful Stepping in right away McCoy he he's had a year now but you kind of expect to see him get a little bit more familiar back there with as little as we run the ball. It might be a little hard for that to translate onto the field I. I'm not buying into that. Because Lucia McCoy has spent how many years in the league. He's a veteran running back. You put a veteran running back in high high-powered look what look at Kareem Hunt. I mean come on now like that. There's I can't buy into that. That's but I understand your perspective respective but it's just one of those things that okay so last year with Buffalo Lesean McCoy didn't do anything look at Buffalo this year. Look at look. Look at look at the progression of Lucia McCoy over the last three years. And it's he's going downhill and and but see you're also given the man credit you know. Think about this. Darwin Thompson doesn't know this offensive line. Any better than Leshan McCoy but you see him having production production when he's put in. So that's my thing is i. Just don't I'm not fall. I'm not going to go down that road because lesean McCoy isn't isn't bringing to the table what anybody thought he would I mean he he has not even bringing fifty yards to the game. I can't it's it's week execution. I'll agree with you there But I mean throughout Onus a history without within the last couple of years you've had examples of running back to garner new teams and Have struggled at first year and then turned around and been successful missile. We haven't actually hit that successful mark here but look I love you on bell with the jets but then awfully here here this year but they don't have an offensive line and I'm not saying that we do but it's just one of the winning team without a running game and everybody knows it eh. Leshan McCoy's averaging twenty yards a game. There's nothing I mean. You're telling me a rookie. Who are who can average twice as much almost three times as much as well Shawn McCoy? Who's never seen this offensive line either? I mean it's you. Put a stud with studs. You expect them to form like Stud. I don't know it's gone all the Shawn McCoy but I just can't give him that one year deal because when when you bring a player like Lesean McCoy and you bring him in foot. We signed him for a year. So I mean what we we. Don't sign somebody for a year to bring him in to get them ready for next year. The you know okay. So I've got a phone comparison for. Yeah so this season will show McCoy. Averaging four point seven yards per carry for his career career. He's averaging four point five yards per carry so he's actually performing better behind this offensive line. Currently it has his entire career with buffalo and PHILLY hands down. We don't have a running game. I'm not willing to listen to any of that Chris Chris like I'm not going to sit here and listen to the man has five yards a carry. What he's not even gained fifty yards a game? I none China that is relevant. We have no run nobody. Nobody scared of lesean McCoy. Nobody there's not one team in the league. Who Cares is about Lesean McCoy? It's bad is horrible and Kansas City. That's all there is to it. There's no justifying how bad are running game is. I'll agree with you. So would that the and said we already know that Leshan on the cool is not the answer. So there's no point putting up an argument for a player who's not going to be here past this year. Who obviously has proven that? He's not the guy for Kansas City. And when Spencer where Dr Thompson Spencer where just got back on the team producing more than most Shawn McCoy. I'm not willing to listen to that. There's no fence at please. But it's just I don't want I guess I can't sit and actively listen to anybody defending a little Shawn McCoy this season because his games been in the bottom of the trash. Josh and I agree with you there. But looking at the rushing totals throughout the tower over of course the entire season. And you you have to take into consideration that we haven't been a running team we've been throwing I e earlier on in the season we were throwing the ball a ton of a lot more than we were when attempting to run the ball and over the of course of the season. We've we've spread the ball even more across the the running back by committee. Then so McCoy minimum touches we're gets ruled touches Thomson has minimum touches. Williams gets minimum touches but as a whole all all the running back by committee is producing. I mean you look at this game ninety two yards now absolutely in this three headed monster McCoy definitely has the lesser of the put out. I agree with that but I also think that he is adding something to our backfield Even if it is just a matter of tutoring Darwin Thompson helping them to understand how to Read it read the holes read the Office of line and how to do the little things how to take care of himself. Whatever that may be? I think that the the one year renting rental of of McCoy is GONNA pay off for the next five to six years when Darwin ends up becoming the running back in Kansas City. which is which is great? So put Lesean McCoy on the sideline. Let them hold a clipboard. Don't start him in every single game and then pull them out after a quarter and a half and let them rust for sixteen yards and let Spencer where and Darwin Thompson make. You look like a fool. I mean I'm just being real and here's my thing is you haven't defended him like this. The whole season last week you were saying this last week there was not in the Shawn McCoy and we were all same Lucia. McCoy's washed up. Yes he might and on his honestly. I'm still saying that we're all going to be highly critical of him. But you look at the numbers has has your security average now. Grant like didn't the average has certainly dropped the second half of the season and but if for him to average more this season and a yard per carry then he has his entire career. That's impressive do. Do you think that he hasn't been able to give been given a chance to get into a rhythm of the rank committee I think so but do you think the Okay so but the first the first couple of games. That doesn't mean that I would give him the bulk of the carries a make him the the lead back doc right which he did have at the beginning of the season. Yeah absolutely dead and civil we all the week called it a running back by committee in the first half of the season in up until I believe it was the Tennessee game where he got sat was the the shady show. And that's kind of an and that's where I'm at with the whole shady thing is okay you know. He's given his opportunity but he really has even had one hundred yard. Russia had had one hundred yard rushing game correct and that was because he had a ninety one yard rush or was that even him. That was one. Yeah that was Williams Williams so shady McCoy has not had one hundred yard game all season. I would say at this point. He he is either at five hundred George or just below five hundred yards. Total on the season I just unlike in the fresh legs Darwin and Spencer ware and it was great. Seeing them closed this game. They did a great job. Didn't they. Absolutely so look. We've we have won four games games in a row now here in Kansas City after we went on a pretty tough stretch but we knew that was gonna be a tough scratch with mahomes being out Matt Moore coming in who really did a phenomenal. The job for the chiefs. But I think what's more impressive in this game because there's a lot of great things to take away way. The offense and the defense did great. I'm really happy with this rushing attack. I feel like now that me and you had a grip. I love the battle that that means had our little debate on this running back thing here let me ask you this. Does it seem to be that. Big Red is leaning more more towards Spencer Wearing Darwin Thompson. I think so especially the season's gone on and he's he's getting gaining more. Trust in Darwin Thomson and as well as Spencer where I feel like he is has definitely a given them. More of the carries worth touches last week and fencer wears very first game back with the cheese. He had more more snaps than any of the any of the other backs which is great. Yeah absolutely and it shows that at read or whoever makes a call with the enemy they have more trust in those guys than they do in shady. And let's also look at this aspect as as well while we're on. The running game is Spencer ware. Darwin Thompson also better rush blocking running backs than Shady McCoy yeah and read said that shady needed to learn learn the the blocking scheme in all the little things that if they've changed it has often since they were in Philly Blah Blah Blah. That was the same excuse that he gave for Darwin Thompson and why he was keeping him out the first half of the season season meanwhile shades of starting getting the bulk of the carries in the very first game because Jacksonville but over the course of the season and the the carries the time on the field has changed between Thompson in McCoy and thompsons getting more and more looks every single week which is fantastic because a keeps it keeps shading as close to one hundred percent as possible going into the regular or into the postseason it gives Darwin Thompson critical experience in a lot of different situations. where he he won't? He's not relearning the exact same things off the field watching as he does on the field doing. And then you also throw in Spencer where WHO's already familiar with our offense of what we're doing in everybody's going to be going into the postseason as close to one hundred percent as they possibly could be which is very different from where we've been in years past. Yes and so look our teams looking good. This is the best that our defense has looked and are running game has looked all season long. And I think that's something to really be happy about and also mahomes really looked to be back gone key today to did he. Not You know that that brings up a really great point for him to throw for three hundred and forty yards song. Essentially I'M GONNA kinda round up you're throwing for. I believe it's like eighty percent completion rate eight two touchdowns US fifteen point seven rating as a quarterback Asir earn in the snow. Five inches mind. You Aw was incredible for him to put up these story numbers and the snow. Yes yes and an against a division rival you know and the weather but that tells you right. There don't don't sleep on Kansas City because it doesn't matter you know win rain or shine snow. What ever the chiefs come to play and homes? Hey give give me five inches of snow. And I'll give you three hundred and forty yards in two touchdowns. We'll take that all day long. Kid keep that common. Keep that and that's also with two to three drives that stalled. I mean you know but Kerr put up What nine point kicked three field goals game three jobs? So so that's three touchdowns taken off the board the and this is also in the elements but this is something that you and I talked about though that we need to fix. And that's that's kind of what got us into this rushing game talk here is US opening up our red zone. Look are red zone is terrible because we have no rushing game if that opens up the open up our our our red zone So let's let's touch base a little bit around the League playoff picture because we're sitting at four right now. Twenty three to three. You know we. We Hand Denver a convincing victory. We have two more games but look Houston beat Tennessee. Twenty one to twenty four to twenty one so Houston goes to nine and five and Tennessee goes to eight and six six New England takes care of business against Cincinnati thirty four to thirteen and go eleven three and later today Pittsburgh plays buffalo and Pittsburgh Bergson eight and five in buffalo sitting at nine four and also we all saw that Baltimore took care of business against the jets. Forty two twenty one. But we're still sitting a game back from New England and were a game ahead of Houston. Two Games behind Baltimore. Were sitting even with Buffalo. I guess we're a half game up on them as it stands but obviously play Pittsburgh. What does it mean for Pittsburgh to beat Buffalo today? So if Pittsburgh Buffalo It really just kinda solidifies who we are probably going to be playing If if we end up having the third seed how what were will let me also go down this other road as well if Pittsburgh Beats Buffalo Buffalo hasn't necessarily sealed their their position in the playoffs and so next week they're going to go into the game against new kingland with an absolute vengeance which is really what we need because the Patriots only have two more games left. The bills on the dolphins opens the if the Patriots lose to the bills got means that the chiefs and built pages will For All intents and purposes and up having the same record going into the playoff picture we beat paint the Patriots we will then have the tiebreaker. And so we would in solidifying the second seat and and realistically you know I personally Blunt Buffalo to win this game because of Buffalo wins this game. They will still be in a position to beat if they beat Pittsburgh this week and then they beat New England next week and they went out the last game then they win. The Tiebreaker Against New England impossibly bounced New England out of the playoffs. Completely for that to happen. But what is concerning for me there. And I'm not sure how would necessarily work because we don't necessarily have a game against them but buffalo and the chiefs within ten theoretically have the exact same record and so my concern would be who would end up. Having the second seat it would be. Kansas ends a city because buffalo lost to Baltimore. Okay so go okay. I got you so. The tiebreaker occur either way in that division will go to Kansas City. So you see what I'm saying so no matter if it's New England or it's Buffalo Tiebreaker goes to Kansas City which is a great thing and then so then Pittsburgh goes on to play Baltimore's well but I don't see Baltimore Fall now. Oh that one's one spot. I'm more concerned about the two spot and a first round bye for Kansas City. And would you agree with that scenario. Absolutely what so. And it's very much a possibility. The chiefs have to take care of business so with this game summarized. Is this game in one word Chris Neck. That's exactly what I was going to say as well all the way around we held. Let's look at the let's look at these broncos stats. We held drew lock to eight hundred. Forty four two hundred eight yards and zero touchdowns and one interception Philip Lindsay had seven carries and for for thirty two yards. And I'll say this might be the only game of the season where we outrushed the other other team. So I'll have to say that this was an all round dominant game. I really wouldn't have seen goose egg on the board on the board but certainly gives me confidence for these last two games coming up Chris. Is there anything else you'd like to talk about before we in the show here. Just one final thing Heartlands Nad all week long. been talking trash about how they were gonNA come in and destroy Kansas City and Own US and Blah Blah Blah Colon sudden you dropped six passes and you only had eighty yards on the day. Andrew team took a huge L.. Shut up Bro. I love it I love it sometimes. Just got keep your mouth shut and let your production do the talking. And obviously that's not the the case for Denver. Today I have one more thing to throw in there. Before we conclude the post game show terrel suggs did get claimed by the Tennessee. Titans lightens obviously. I'm sure he didn't play today. And is probably GONNA help going down the stretch because if oh Tennessee loses another game that's pretty much over with for them but look Kansas City. One word dominance two games left in the season. We really need some help. I'm looking forward to this Pittsburgh Buffalo Game. We'll see what happens. Maybe we can sneak into this to spot Kansas City. You have a great evening. I hope you enjoyed that game today. A five inches of snow did not stop Kansas City from putting it on the Denver Broncos nine eight times in a row. You have great night Kansas City. Thank you for tuning early kingdom.

This is your host night Chris Jarvis and this is the evening before the biggest game of the entire season for the chiefs. We play the New England patriots tomorrow in Foxborough and and I don't know about you guys but I make extremely excited for this game. This is going to be a huge impactful game for the cheese season. Going going into the playoffs and yeah I always yes I am ready for this game Richards out tonight. So we're just going to breaks or run through this really quickly you guys For the most part the pages have been having a stellar year on defense. They've got the number one defense. One of the top defenses in the League behind your perspective. It's either New England or The forty niners but on the flip side of that the New England patriots offense has nowhere or has been nowhere near as good as we've seen or known them to be in the past Brady is looking human this year and on the flip side. They're running game. Hasn't been nearly impactful as as is usual but they tend to Kinda give away What they're going to be doing in the run game based upon the personnel that they have in so? If we see Sony Sony Michelle in in the backfield. There are more than likely going to be running the ball. He has one one hundred eighty four rushing attempts whereas James White the other running back when he's in he has fifty three days and so more unlikely. If James White is in the backfield they're going to be throwing the ball on the flip side in the passing game. James White is the second leading receiver on the team with fifty seven receptions. So you look at fifty seven receptions to forty three or fifty fifty three repass Ruining attempts he's going to be in on a plan passing down. Julian Edelman their leading receivers also also there leading target gator. One hundred twenty three targets eighty two catches and he's about eighty five yards away from having a one thousand yard season and the next closest receiver is an inverse of eighty-two with twenty eight catches James White in the those totals you guys is Julian Edelman eighty two catches Philip door set twenty eight catches. Those numbers are rather astounding When when Brady's throwing the ball he's looking for one guy one guy not only mom new in the four games with the new the the New England patriots? He says seventeen catches. Don't get me wrong. He's a very well experienced wide receiver but his best years are absolutely behind him. He and Brady of definitely had had some really good games. hasn't been games The last couple of weeks On the defensive side. Let's see their leading. tacklers is Jamie Collins who is leading the team of sixty one. He's got six sacks they have another linebacker Calvin Oy with other six and a half sacks and dont`a hightower with four sacks and then Their defensive end chase Vich He's a rookie. But he's he's got five five and a half as does their defensive. Tackle Adam Butler. These guys can bring pressure from all over the place and the way that they do that on. Defense defense is bright bringing in a zero zero rush or covers. Excuse me so so they pretty much blitz a six players. There's IT Tried to force the quarterback into making a mistake or if he tries to run run around and in escape the the the the rush. They'll get him from another direction and this is a strategy that they we used last year in the playoffs against us and what was that. They rushed five but they double teamed to Tyreek Hill. Deal with the Safety Anna Corner and in the first half. It really caused a lot of problems for us. But in the second half he started to kind of figure it out a little bit and I expect for the chiefs to continue to be successful against that defense. What we need to expect it is for them to again? They're going to double team Cheetah with the safety and a and a corner and they're going to put their best quarterback doc Stefan Gilmore up against either or walk INS or potentially and I really see this making a little bit more sense against Travis. Atas Kelsey if they put Gilmore on Kelsey. That means that we're going to have to really ride our her third fourth and fifth best options in in the passing game and in order for us to be successful. Tomorrow we need for McColl Hartman to step up I. I think he's going to be the key to our success tomorrow. derive has really fallen off Hartman's kind of been absent the last couple of weeks as well and both of those guys ruling needs to step up but if hardman can really get in sync with mahomes homes. I don't think that the Patriots have the speed or the personnel to truly shut down to absolute Speed getters out of our wide receiving corps. They can shut down one. They can't shut down both. But we need for these guys to be able to get open and run their routes and create separation and catch the ball. I think that this is going to be really tough. Game for Kelsey. He he's got to perform in this game. He has got to create separation. Catch the ball and move. They'll I'll stick smoothie pile or get into past pylon touchdown to Mahomes has got to be on his game. This is going to be really tough game. You guys Checking the weather forecast. which if you guys have been listening all year long we have done at all but Going into this game the the temperature is going to be thirty. Two degrees and partly cloudy at the moment there aren't there is no reports of a chance of rain at all all but thirty two degrees. That's going to be pretty cold and fingers and limbs are going to be pretty numb at probably probably later on in the game and so I think that this is going to end up becoming a little bit of running game and luckily we have McCoy who's had had two three weeks worth of rest and we have an emerging D train for those of you who missed it last week. He stepped in for an entire series and he looked fantastic. I definitely think he's get some more carries in this game and and he and Shady are going to be nice little changed change of pace We need to run outside of the of the tackles in order to really strength. Stretch the defense as well as Get them tired and wear them down letter offense of line. B B. These guys up in the middle. We'll break it outside and trust the Chen test that secondary of the Patriots. I think that that with our improve defense over the last couple of weeks. If they're on point tomorrow this is going to be a very very close game. I think it's it's going to be a low scoring game you guys. I think it's going to be about twenty four seventeen with the chiefs coming out on top Everything that I've seen a Has US was the word I'm looking for With the advantage Right now the Patriots have their starting center. Her car is He's out for the game tomorrow. And the chiefs have a couple of players. That are out Mo- clayborn he's out Damian Williams has been ruled out already and In case you guys didn't hear all this week. We ended up re signing Spencer Spencer. Ware and I'm not sure if he's going to necessarily be on the Game Roster of we're just GONNA go in with Two running backs but It'd be nice to get him back into the fold and getting some carries at some point down the road. Things are looking frank. Clark is questionable for the game. I think he's GonNa be the key piece that we have to have because if we don't don't have hint well okay so let me break this down as well. Because I haven't touched on our defense yet. We're going to have to have all hands on deck on defense. Because I was like I was saying the pages. Only their offense in the passing game really only runs through who element and last week. We saw Houston Double Team Him with the corner and with a safety and then they had a linebacker her her follow the they're running back out of the backfield and basically what they were doing was they were dropping seven or six or seven players back back in coverage and I think we need to absolutely mimic that exact same defense as well because as we saw Houston was very successful with that we he absolutely have the personnel to be successful against this Patriots team tomorrow. Various Ward matched up against Eshelman in and with thornhill covering the back. I think that we we shut him down with that Brilliant covering Sununu Kendall Handle Fuller I think. Even if you put kindle fuller on Eshelman and let Thornhill Cover over the top is going to be a great defense to be able to shut him. Down I think fuller might be a little bit. Shiftier might be able to stick with him because element is very good getting in and out of his cuts basically as only buys around in and don't let him yards after the catch. We're going to be very. We should be successful in shutting him down in controlling controlling their offense but Go into our D. Line. If we can just control the the line line of scrimmage with four Lyman Clark Naughty Jones Okay Four. We're going to be having a great day because because we're going to be able to shut down the run game and force Brady to have to throw against six or seven corn porn or six or seven back in the secondary playing against the run. And that's what we've got to do in order to shut these guys down. We absolutely can do that. If ring. Clark's out you know we still have K- Paseo step in there. But I would much rather have you guys know that I K- passes is my guy but I would much rather have capeeze subbing and covering in for Free Clark are rotating over with ochre for stepping stepping in and playing the defensive tackle positions. When need be I'd rather keep has come in and these guys fresh and if we have one man Frank Clark or whomever or Dad's GonNa definitely set us back and we need those extra bodies? Those fresh is is to be able to come in and break down that offensive line so that we can keep hitting or pressuring Brady and and I am so excited for this game guys. I can see this game playing out in the chiefs favor and I think it's definitely going to be a very good game very exciting. And like I said it's GonNa be a low scoring affair. Believe but I think is going to come out with the chiefs on top. Yep so you guys please be safe out there. Enjoy the game and have a great day and we will talk to you guys after the game with the game breakdown have a good night.

AP Roundtable - Pete joins Carrington Harrison and Sean Levine on The Drive

"Back in on the drive. Here's Sean here. BK Here we're joined in studio by the plaid prints. The editor in chief of era had pride. He is also the CO captain captain of operation. Optimism Sean is the captain and you are also. I don't know about that. The coach captain of Darwin Thompson Hype Train. I mean that I will into you might have like a hunger games on who the leader of that. I'll ride the train all day but I'm not getting on the optimism. Bad ways she. She wanted to do that. You can oh no you know whatever B. K. Says Paul. That's what you know. You said some very gracious sakes don't play this for you. This is Andy Reid. He's talking about the role of Spencer ware. which would mean a diminished role once again for you to his favorite favorite player? Aside from Patrick Mahomes nosy offense. So it's not learn. He'd have to go through that whole thing he can come in and he's in pretty good shape. I played football. But he's in pretty good shape so it's important they practice hard does all that and then we'll see we'll see at the end of the week it's in is not going to be your starter Carter. Who doing but we'll see? We'll sell workshop. Sean if I set the over under oath carries it for Darwin Thomson at three and a half take the over or the under it keeps going down. It was ten twenty four hour on Monday. You said at nine and a half then we got the Spencer where news and he said yesterday I think at five and a half four down to what he wanted to now three and a half barely getting four. I'm hammering the over. I think he's GonNa get the bunch of carrot even with a bunch define a bunch. I just want to know what a bunch of carries for Darwin Thompson is seven six to eleven. I said at the beginning of the week. Who's going to get like what I what I say? I got kind of excited. What is it you said he's GonNa get fifteen again? That was before this news came out and that was after we saw him against the raiders. Never going to get that though peaches. How would you say six to eleven guys because you guys are the conductor of the train notes because he region opportunities? Okay well okay deserving an opportunity and then giving them the opportunity sooner two different things if he gets eleven carries he will have the most carries in the other guys have to fail before him to get an actual shot. Like we've Seen Damian we've seen daryl seamless Shawn McCoy we saw Carlos side in the preseason. A sign some dude. I never heard of. They just went out and Got Spencer. Where like how many other dudes get a crack at it before we get a chance guy? I felt like in this game on another another one spencer where that's it. So how do you know the answer. I felt like in this past game and I understand. It was garbage time. I understand the raiders. Were done but the achieve still needed yardage to ice the game. I just haven't felt like at any time this year consistently even for like a big stretch of a game the chiefs needed yardage art. Aging could get it freely on the ground like they did this past week and for what it's worth I mean it was. It was the rookie and an an andy through the healthy scratch and through putting the ball in other player's hands and not giving them opportunities has basically proven through his actions. That Leshan. McCoy's not the guy you can understand why and you have a guy that just came in off the street. I understand. He's been here. I understand. He's been in this offensive scheme. But I think it's fairly obvious to me. See your best running back right now. Is the rookie. So what's the plan with Spencer. Ware just a good insurance policy. Yeah that's what I'm talking about joining me right. The Detroit train ride the train all day right but the buy a ticket. I don't know how that thing works. His Darwin's played it. You can't play. It was going to buy you set him up. Just leave Sean. You ask me Sean you get your blue choose. We'll eleven nice time to do it. Here's what his nickname's Detroit it's worth and and he says because he likes to be the conductor of his life that's the reference anyway but yes. I think that Darwin for me right now based upon what I'll ask him he's been better. That was a better. I understand was a quarter. I was a better quarter than you've seen from any any running back in a long time for the Gandhi to Sean. I just Pete I just WANNA understand. Why are we spend more time talking about a player who has sixteen Carey's than Sammy Watkins? I don't want to somebody helped me understand the science because I hear you guys were saying you guys been you guys. You Watch the game last Gus. Both of impound on the table for him to get an opportunity every single week. The chiefs basically tell us they're not going to give Darwin Thompson Opportunity this season. I'm not saying they're going to give them the opportunity. But Sean came in here all excited see I told you. They signed a running back the moment that our show ended they signed a running back. Well I think that's more because they don't want to just have two running backs I don't don't get the feeling that Damian and Darryl is going to be available so you need to have a third round with back if you WANNA put of a small wager on it I wager. That spence aware has more carries on Sunday. Darwin Thomson. It's such a crapshoot. It's so hard like that's one of the toughest pets in sports right now which running back in the lead. The team encourages anybody. Get in touch a double digit time like you just never know each week. I know that it's not Darwin Thompson. Listen because I have thirteen games of evidence to suggest that it's not gonNA be Darwin's. Yeah but Damian wasn't injured der wasn't injured. It took half the season for the Shawn McCoy to find himself in the DOGHOUSE. Cows and we finally got Darwin Thompson an opportunity and he scored a touchdown and did something on the drive. That I didn't know they could do. I'll give you the same bet. I'll bet both of you when you want to support Light Burrito if that's what you WanNa and do you want to do what you pull labor. Let's do lock it in. Did you guys know how many snaps Darwin Thompson had coming into this week. On the season for the entire season with doc about Fox News about three to five game. I don't know the exact number. It was twenty two at some point. It's not going to be about twelve but at some point it's not going to be about that or what you're talking about. Maybe are you one day is going to be good two or three years down the line. Could he beat good or can he be the best answer at running back for the last four games of this season and the playoffs Pete at this point it's not the marathon at the sprint and I think he's going to at least get the opportunity on Sunday. David writing this carousel all year. I mean it's not like it's been one guy then. All of a sudden Darwin comes in and has a nice stretched stretched. It's been Lesean McCoy. It's been Damian Williams when he comes back at stretches it's been Daryl Williams it's been let's try and find out whoever works. Finally you hand the ball off eleven times last week. And the guys able to get yardage and scores a touchdown again. I understand. It's the end of the game but you're trying to ice the game. I I think that Jon Gruden is GonNa Coach his team to to stop playing and I understand what was happening but the same time you saw it. I mean I. You're watching the game CD. Did a running back this year. Make you feel like Darwin Thompson or give you the confidence that okay. He because he's allusive enough to pick up yardage tough yardage this year then that stretch. I don't I don't think that's the case was coming like yeah. It was the end of the game but Oakland. Exactly we'RE GONNA turn around hand the ball off and you had success with that. Drive is something that she's on a lot of drive this season none of them look like that. I mean this an austere since I love both of you guys. I can't talk talk anymore about a drive in which a team was up thirty points more than we we. We've seconded that. Dr Dissected any other drives so far have not been a lot of good things to talk about the chiefs running back points and they were running the football to run the clock out we've been. Has You ever felt this. What are you talking because you know what would have happened? If that was Damian Williams he would've average one one point five yards per carry and the chiefs would opponent if it was barely probably got injured. If it was a strong McGLADE. Probably would have fumbled. The good thing was we saw my guy. And Pete's Guy Dalwin take the ball down the field double digit carries and ended up in the end zone. Plenty Room right here on the Detroit Dom okay. No thanks right out with our ride. The train all right now. We're talking to sweeny. Is the editor in chief of Arab writer. Peter are you picking in this week man. This is a tough game. I got this piece. He's believe I believe I use Owen Right Dan defense. That's come around. You believe in this team. Are you picking them. I don't know I in this game. I don't know what to do in this. There's no wrong okay let. Let's start with this. Then what are you unsure about therapy your. What are you unsure about? So it is his Wednesday. You're the editor in chief of the second most popular chiefs website on the Internet assigned from chiefs DOT COM. If you look at the numbers there are some days. We'd be changed. Yeah that was a rag. I've ever heard of just tell you the day's worth with worby. I've seen numbers I've had both numbers I've seen. ESPN numbers Arrowhead. Pride gets a live use. No they do they do. I'm only what what are you hesitating on making a decision of WHO's GonNa win this game so I think the Patriots offered the Best D. in the NFL. I don't think I'd want a different defense. All right the D train all day. who a lot of debate? The only four seconds. That's take full responsibility as I was high like the Patriots defense a better than any defense in the league. I think I think that right. And here you have the chiefs offense and this isn't a popular take and I saw the replies to be catered the other day but Patrick mahomes quietly is in the worst. Few Games aims of his career. And the offense for what it's worth doesn't feel great right now. How much are those circumstantial? The factor played in Mexico City and he was just coming back from the week before and then they played windy. Game and Travis Kelsey drops everything thrown his way. Like how much of it's PAT oppose. Do all the other things show has capable in from from a homes. If you missed it happened I mean there have been throws like there have been throws that have been off mahomes he. He does look slightly. I fear to step up in the pocket concern is invisible. Patrick Mahomes give you any concern whatsoever. On any level. A small percentage percentage. I think he's fine. I think he's fine but again. You're I'm just telling you what's what's a fact. He's in the worst few games in a row of his career. And you're facing the the best defense in the league in one of the hardest places to play in the history of the national football league like that doesn't give you pause like what he watched. And that's how I feel. It sounds like you and I are on the same page at least in this individual game. You don't have to be Bill Belichick or some great defensive mind to know exactly how the Patriots are going to try to defend the Kansas City chiefs. They're going to try to double team Tyreek Hill and make it where he can't get the big play over the top. They're probably GONNA put Gilmore on Travis Kelsey and they're gonNA they're gonNA roll the dice that Sammy Watkins doc in came beach you are McColl harmony can be or marcus. Robinson can't be in that you can't run the football effectively. The thing is there's probably about five players on the team. If you can get one or two of those guys is to play well. This is probably a game. You can win if you can get. Darwin Thomson the Sean McColl way. If you can get the any of those receivers you probably got a chance to win this game because there's no way to. I need that hill or Kelsey both have great days. Maybe one of them right no chance that both of them play. Well it's all about to. I think third and fourth options sometimes with the New England patriots. Because you're right they do take away a lot of your your your your best talent on the team and so if hill and calcium locked up I mean you gotTa have a better day from Sammy Watkins than we've seen in a while. I think there's a reason to believe like McColl hardman touches the ball a little bit more in this game with his yards per reception. That is better than most to the team I I. I think there's reason to think okay. Let's get hardman involved. Maybe they don't see this type of thing coming Bill Bell Chaco is says you know what your third or fourth option and this is a perfect game for a guy. And you don't want to say this for like Spencer where Darwin Thompson or McColl Hartman has been pretty good. What's happened to all those other wide? Receiving options goes. You mentioned macgarvin. He he had his moment in the sun. Same thing with trump wrangled. Marcus Robinson Hell. Sammy Watkins that. Two hundred yard three touchdown game. Yeah and since tire has been back it's been tyreek Hill and that's it is forest ars key wide receivers. I don't know if Sammy's right again. It's just as long he isn't this just saying well I think in the beginning getting of the year he truly was healthy. And now it's just the same deal where I don't know how banged up. He is game was the exception to the rule when it comes to saving now correze read what you've seen the last month and a half two months where he hasn't gotten in the end zone and average is one point five catches per game. That's the Samuel. I think that's what he is like like inbetween plays. I'm not sure when he's going to look good. And when he's GonNa look like there are plays throwing a game where it's like. Oh Man. He came up lame like he's going to be done for the rest of the game and it goes back in and has an amazing mazing play and then three plays later. He looks terrible. It's weird and I don't WanNa call him out because you don't know what's going through a player's head you don't know the details of it but I remember it was either the preseason or training camp early on in the year where he kind of ingests told a story where he's like yeah. I wasn't really running during practice and Patrick Mahomes had to get on me. And it's like criminal. Does he take plays off. You know. And because for all that money and for what we've seen him able to do like you mentioned in that first game and and and what you've seen on individual plays his ability to get away from defenders like why is he so invisible so often I wanna go back to something Sean said in. I think that she's fans. Maybe don't want to admit this the lions show the NFL. The blueprint on how to defend the Kansas City chiefs and I think teams have been daring the other guys on the team to beat them one on one in man coverage and they can't because think about all those games you're talking about happened before the lines game and then after the lions game remember Kelsey said we got to figure out how to beat me and coverage since then that's what teams have been doing teams. He's been playing pressman coverage against everybody not named Travis Kelsey entire Rico daring them to be. You can't be you consistently now. Hardman can make a play and he started saying they haven't done anything since then but I think the lion showed the NFL the rest of the blueprint and just teams had to stop being afraid to actually try and and a complete lack of running the football ball and an ability to do so has hurt them greatly. I know I don't want to get back into the running backs but that aspect of not having that has hurt them greatly two games ago. Patrick Mahomes who this year had a dislocated right knee was your leading rusher. How that makes you one dimension? Good you know what I mean. And so they're they're missing that running back and and I don't blame the chiefs. I've always said this. I don't blame the chiefs. Four getting rid of Kareem Hunt. But there's no answer right now at that position. That is a the problem Pete. The shovel is out. There's a pile of dirt. You've got an option. Do you WanNa take the shovel. Pick up some of that dirt and throw them in the Patriot you know. Both teams have their flaws right and so usually in the NFL. When you feel even about a team you go with the home team and so that's why like I hate to say it in this game I? I'm slightly leaning New England. Because their home. They always perform at home. I'm not a traitor. I look at Tom Brady and we. How many times do we have to do this? But is this different. Like doesn't the entire team and Brady Louise's more vulnerable than they ever have. We've said in different before I until they lose in the play offs for two seasons in a row and Tom Brady says this is it. I'm done he's seventy seventy seven years old coming out in one of those. Maybe rascal wheelchairs were to be like damn it Tom. Brady's GonNa beat us again. Isn't IT I. I don't think it's impossible the chiefs win but if I haven't forced pick I just it's hard for me to pick the chiefs in this game. I feel like this is the most conflicted. You've been this season aside from the Vikings game like you and I talk a lot on the air off off the air about the chiefs the NFL. You've side seventeen times in fifteen minutes. I feel like this is the most conflicted. You've been about a win because I maybe I'm reading reading it wrong bright. I think you look at the Patriots and notice how vulnerable they are bright but the logic of the last fifteen years will not let you pick a team to go go into foxborough in December and leave with a win and that's it and and what's what's preventing me from saying and I try to stay unbiased as possible this with preventing me from saying The Patriots who's going to roll over the chiefs there at home they got Brady is that I seen Patrick. Mahomes home gets up for games and I just think he's GonNa get up for this one and I doubt that was what part of the reason I asked him today about Tom. Brady this could be the last chance he has to beat Brady. I mean he joked and said Oh. I've thought that for several years and everything like that but I just think in the back of his mind I mean you only get so many chances to beat the greatest of all time when he's forty four years old this could it'd be it and so I think he gets up for this and that's confusing pete. I'm curious what you think about this. I think this game this one individual game this next sixty minutes. Are The difference between US viewing the Kansas City chiefs as a legitimate super bowl. Contender are looking at them as the same chief team we've seen for twenty years. Though when eleven games they will have beaten a lot of teams that they were supposed to be in the second round of the playoffs. They are going to lose to a team that was better than them. Throughout the course of the regular season. Yeah this is the last game of the season that at the chiefs should have a chance at losing the rest of the Games you should take care of and so this is going to be how you think of the team ahead of the play offs if I I think these Games really matter and give you confidence in the play like I think you really have to believe in yourself in in the playoffs and if you lose this game against the Patriots and even if you win the last three against the bears the broncos and the chargers do you really truly in your heart of hearts believe in yourself. Can you grind out a win when the margin of error is going to be so small in the. NFL fell playoffs. I just don't know if the chiefs could lose in Foxborough and then feuded rebound enough to beat three really good teams that self confidence matters in football football. It's all you know it's Cliche but it's a game of inches. I would love to see them. Get this win to have that confidence. I just feel like at least people nationally. It'll people locally probably going to do it to the same way that we look at other team schedules and then asked the WHO'd you be when you play good teams you lost. I think that people outside Kansas City are going to do that. Same thing for the chiefs like if they don't win this game aside from the Minnesota Game it man that Baltimore win was a long time ago. The different team that people are going to look at well. You lost the Green Bay. You Lost Indianapolis you lost a Houston. You'll Austin New England like people are really going to play the WHO'd you beat car to the last two months so even if this team quote unquote gets hot. And they went seventy eight people are going to say well whenever you play legitimate playoff teams you lost right like if in a weird twilight zone yes we had the college football playoff of the NFL. Wouldn't we be saying well. Who did it chiefs? beat you know they're kind of out of it and that's I agree with that and so you could say similar things about the Patriots. I know I saw a stat this morning. That was interesting where their eight no against less than five hundred teams and to and to against winning teams and so the got a little bit that going onto at the end of the day in the enemy but this is a game the chiefs need.

And I'm like a certain way and you get dressed closed or your grandmother or something like that. No one wants to give my girl. You know the answer to this I gave. You've got not the one that you've given away. What is the worst Christmas gift that you have received? I can't tell the story on the girl of dog toys. I don't WanNa hear that story.

It was a really gifted owned more text. Line six nine three zero six. Do you think the bears and chiefs get flexed out. Oh my gosh I hope so. I hope I hope they get fly. I love noon Games so I I'm hoping that does I. I think there's a possibility if you look at the schedule. We don't know who protect ex- watt but there's an eagles. I believe Eagles and cowboys game. That you might see getting flex sure. Yeah text. Line six nine three zero six. Why don't the achieves give the ball to Anthony Sherman more short yardage situation? It's a question if you would have given Anthony Sherman the ball instead of Patrick Mahomes. You would've had them for the whole year dumbfounded by that question. I have no idea you have a full back on the roster and he and he's pretty good special teams but they never hand him the ball they never hand the ball in those situations which is crazy to me because he's pretty good at picking up yardage I remember the Anthony Sherman game which was week. Seventeen game the patent home started. He had that we'll we'll route touchdown last year week. One what do you think honey. Bryant Badger has been worth the money I do and not not just if you look at his play but I think what he's been able to do for one thornhill. I don't think that's just coachspeak in and play you're speak. I think one thornhill coming in on a lot faster because of that guidance from from from Matthew I don't I don't know if he's as good right now with Adam Thornhill Pete. How big is the gap between Baltimore and the chiefs in Patriots right now? I like Baltimore better than the chiefs in the Patriots right now. I just like the hot teen. I mean that that could change in three weeks. If they're you're not playing as well but how do you not like. If you're betting right now playoff start tomorrow. Are you betting on anyone but Baltimore. Have you ever asked yourself in a moment of clarity last couple of weeks. How in the hell the cheese balls the last two times? They played them. Yeah I mean it's a good question I it's it. mahomes is to Lamar Jackson as like Brady is to mahomes homes. Innocence can't beat them. Are you more worried about the offense against the Patriots Defense Sport. The chiefs defense against the Patriots offers definitely the first the offense the defense. I just don't think the chiefs offense is playing as good as they have before. And I like I said I really love the Patriots defense especially bill bell check and what he's able to do as far as this game planning and then mid game adjustments even a is the best. He's the best. Don't get the two seat. It's going to be a stretch. Shaw's the the only one holding onto the dream. They beat the Patriots or three. I wouldn't I wouldn't bet it I mean I. I don't think it's impossible own bed sean. What is would would you have to get to bet on the chiefs to get the two seat? It's probably less than twenty percent. I mean they'd have to run the table basically the Patriots to lose to the chiefs and probably lose the bill. So it's not it could happen but it could. No it certainly could happen. I just WanNa know what is that you have to get to one hundred dollars. I'll tell you this if they don't win this game then it's technically over then it's done then it's actually over then he can't win it so that point you're just talking about three of the four seat so if they're win this game they're still at least on the table a lot to play it for I feel like they need to scrap this playoff system. A AH it's a mess right now. That's aside as on cowboys about the seven and nine host. Application winners should get a into the playoffs. No doubt they. You shouldn't get a home game if you're nine and seven and there's thirteen team. I hope you have that. Argue whenever buffalo wins wargames in Kansas City. This game shouldn't be played here. You don't quote me on. This should achieve. According to five thirty and have a ten percent chance of getting the buy a ten percent Thursday the chance I just want to point out that is Sean. What would he need to bet on it he? He hotline blinked danced out of that one that was that was a good day juice. Fast every guest. We've had but I asked you about it. I me tomorrow. Now's not even realistic. All right the patrons leaving. That is our Guy Pete Sweeney. He is with Arrowhead Pride. He is the editor in chief and he has an amazing beer.

Damien Williams Opts Out, Is Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB6? (07/29 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"Now here's some combination of Adam Dave? Jamie Ben. Two thousand. Seventeen. Kareem Hunt was a top four running back. Chiefs rookie running back takes advantage of a preseason injury to the veteran and Kareem Hunt becomes a fantasy superstar two, hundred and seventy two carries fifty three catches and eleven. TOUCHDOWNS will history repeat itself here in twenty twenty unfortunately, Damian Williams is opting out for the season and that means Clyde. Ed Brasileira has a much clearer path to dominating the touches Jimmy Eisenberg and Bandra joining me. I'm Adam as or this is a bonus edition of fantasy football today get right to Jamie Wears Clyde Edwards. Either in your rankings right now where was he and whereas he now? So I had downgraded him with the lack of off season worker, I think we've talked about that a little bit that I was concerned with Williams being there and. Edwards, they're not getting the opportunity to showcase himself in ot as many camps and preseason I dropped him from initially. The end of the first round beginning of the second round to the middle of the third round. Now. He is number eight overall and the six running back off the. Man Ben how about you? Yeah I had I had him at I guess rb fifteen was that a little bit earlier last week 'cause I had him right behind Aaron Jones still maybe a little too high and not enough of an adjustment that point. But I'm with Jimmy I. Think if I'm drafting today I'm taking rb six thousand miles sanders they're outside the pretty clear top-five backs. And I would take. Over mouth that was next question. Wow. Wow Yeah look I get it makes sense but do you think they're going to add someone in with that with that change your mind depending on who it is I. Think they will just the fact that McCoy who platelets on. McCoy who played with last year is still out there He clearly fell out of favour at the end of the season because he was an active he was inactive for the super. Bowl. But he has a history with Andy. Reid. He knows the offense under the circumstances of what the off season has been They can clearly bring him in but remember they made a move already this season parts NFL draft. Bring in the under Washington from the raiders and we saw the way he performed when he stepped in for Josh Jacob last year, they still have to young guys in Darwin Thompson and Daryl Williams and so you know they may not have to make a a a huge priority move but it just makes sense given such a young backfield aside from Washington to bring in somebody and for me I would think McCoy makes more sense than reaching for Devante Freeman or Lamar Miller for say. Okay. So do you think Do you think Clyde efforts either can get two hundred and seventy carries this year? No No. What are you thinking? I'm thinking about it catches I'm thinking you know sixty, sixty five. Sixty five catches may be and then double the touchdowns I mean pretty easily double-digit touchdowns maybe not a lock for. But when you're in the Kansas City offense, you don't have to score ever bring back touchdown to get double-digit touchdowns like you have to when you're in some other offenses I mean, he doesn't. He it's not gonNA be too tough for him to put up a pretty big battle on in this offense. You're talking about a guy that lsu year nearly nineteen hundred total yards. Seventeen total touchdowns but the receiving numbers I mean, you talk about all the time you know twenty five, thirty catches typically a high number for college running back. He had fifty five cats. Made I was just on CBS sports. HQ with people goes guys around the League compare him to Maurice Jones drew. You know smaller back but stocky build and in somebody who's got a physical presence. I remember speaking to him at the NFL combine I was very impressed. He had a very hard handshaking. Hi I'm always. Looking at that after when I first met Adrian Peterson at his rookie symposium nearly broke my hand with his. in I remember asking layer because he wasn't one of the top back since forms of where his draft stock was. You know it was John Stiller with the two guys everyone was talking about and then it was Jacob Dobbins in top Dobbins was in that the top guys within it was kind of acres and Edwards layer was the next two guys and I said to him. If you don't get drafted in the first two rounds, I remember phrasing it that way how are you going to be and I'm going to have the biggest chip on my shoulder that you'll ever find? Well, he was the first back taking. That shows you what eighty re wants that shows you what the each the GM wants that. You know when they compared to. Brian West broken You know we're talking about him, but the setup is almost identical to what happened Kareem Hunt? A A journeyman type of guy and Spencer ware coming off a productive season. Blows out his knee and Kareem Hunt we thought may taking the job that year. Ran Away with it led the NFL. Rushing on top what he does a fancy off. So I mean Edwards hilarious got just the a huge ceiling right now and if you draft win guys like Mile Sanders are great guys like Joe Mixon. Josh. Jacobs. Derrick Henry. Kenyan drake, they're all great. This guy could be better than all of them might be. That's why I. That's why landed at rb six. It's like I I. Love Sanders is upside to ever. Salinas's is clearly higher. Well, we're basing it on his hunt though. To say that when Kareem Hunt, in two, thousand, seventeen, the first eleven games the two thousand eighteen was awesome. Like I said he was top four in two, thousand, seventeen, two, thousand, eighteen he was on a per game basis third in non ptr sixth, NPR six and a half of your eighth NPR and he had. Seven. Catches in eleven games. He dominated the touches I two, thousand seventeen no. Running back more than eighteen carries other than Kareem. Hunt in two thousand eighteen Damian Williams had like fifty one cares only was basically after the injury. So I'm just wondering you know we make the comparison scream, but it doesn't seem like you guys feel like Clyde Edwards is going to dominate the touches as much with the Andre Washington with Darwin Thompson Madeira Williams there. With maybe the Shawn McCoy coming in devante Freeman is still available. Do you think people might overshoot it a little bit. No I mean I think this is a great question but you just noted that not many guys. You noted the Carey's were out there and I just pulled that up cream on at fifty three catches up for sure. That's good for back charge. Andrew. Who was the guy who had eighteen carries had twenty seven. Catches. So honks workload was more early down and he was playing some on passing downs, and then when you look in two thousand, eighteen, the only the only played like eleven gains but my kind of freezing up but the only colleague twenty, twenty, six, twenty, six passes. So he wasn't as much in the passing game the difference two differences one, they took seller in. The first round and they talked about how much they loved him and they compare them to breath these things and then to when you talk about his actual workload where he's going to give up some work hypoc gave up some work in the passing downs was Hilar- projects give up some of that those low-value touches to a guy like you know Daryl Williams. Or deandre Washington however, it's going to be our Leshan McCoy if they bring him back but it seems pretty clear that his workload will be all the high value touches and that to me actually gives him. You know maybe not hot upside just because it was so efficient that hard to just project that but it gives him eat the same close to the same ceiling. Even. With no training camp, well, you know different even with no minicamp s there's training camp even with no preseason games even with a really good offensive linemen and DNA Tardif opting out you're still going to go with him over Mile Sanders and Josh Jacobs and Joe Mixon and all these guys. It could be mistake could easily be mistake like. I'll I'll amend what I said. It's not that those other guys don't have great upside. Bent Bend. Piggyback off that Correct Mal. Sanders has a huge deal, Josh Jacobs His catches up huge ceiling Derek Andrew, we saw last year didn't need to catches monster campaign. Joe mixon could be fantastic also if he builds off the way that he finished, you go on and on about those guys that are first round caliber running backs but this is your banking on. The coach, just you know one won the Super Bowl and Kareem Hunt and what he's done, it has his body career with exceptional players. Especially, what he's done with running backs, Kareem Hunt Did that with Alex, Smith? Yes. This is cloud layer with basketball. You know with tyreek Hill as one of the best receivers, which is calcium, the best identity game, and so you have all these things that just set up so perfectly. He just needs to take advantage of that, and it's an if but he just help Lsu when the national championship with a monster campaign in an offense that similar type of characteristics you know of of how they operated and. Spread the ball around a great quarterback who said all kinds of records. And so I just think that you know you can take the safe route and take sanders or Henry or whoever you feel the most comfortable. When this first happened I went to my rankings and I said, okay, you know ten is probably a safe spot for behind sanders behind dragged behind mixing for me then I'm like. No he hits. Yeah. He's better than net right right I did the same thing put him in that tier was Sanders Drake and mix in Adler job in Jacob's that's the cheer for me. That's my order and I had him in that tier and I was like he's a top tier. He's better than all of these guys in terms of ceiling and he's in this year he doesn't belong outside this year But yeah I agree with that completely. All right. Some final questions for you here who's the second chiefs running back? If you'RE GONNA draft one who would be? I would take the Andre Washington now just because he's proven Darwin Thompson, I spoke to him at the super. Bowl during media night you know and this was at the point of we thought Shawn McCoy was done which curly's has been the case If it was GONNA come back this year as Williams the one and maybe Thompson competing for the two. He said I remember the quote paraphrase it if I'm not making a lot of money. By the end of by next contract I'm out of the league this year. And so you know he he's putting a lot on himself to hopefully improve in a big way the doors open now for him to be the second guy and then has been alluded to Daryl Williams. had some very productive moments last year, and even the year before I think you know when Williams was dealing with his injury situation. So they're all capable I think of being the second guy but I'll lean toward the veteran who stepped up in a big way for the raiders last year and hopefully has been in the playbook and those what he's going to have to do. To compete to be that, guy. Yeah To two thoughts on that one part of our concern with SELENA's at Damien Williams new, the new the offense so well and Andrea Washington doesn't I liked the under Washington the most as well of these backups. But I, think he's GonNa get a lot of hype I'm seeing a lot of already some buzz on twitter about him being the top one and so I made an agreement with Jamie but I also think one. It's a good note on Edward Solaire. while. We can be optimistic I mean it's very similar to cream hunt at like you've been saying Adam that that there was no one else really left. They had to trust this rookie. They're kind of in that position to have anyone else and then to say, I, like washing the most ranking the highest of the backups but I think Daryl Williams wind up being the best value because Darwin Thompson still a little buzzy to I expect our winds price and going forth but. Him and dollar to the two that have the most familiar with team in Darwin. Darryl is the one who actually played over Darwin a lot more last year. He's the one who got the most playing time in this offense last year not surprise me off. He had a week one role as the guy who they can trust and they know what they're getting and I would expect also deandre Washington the other others will, but he's the one that I think would be the best value if he stays like fourteenth or sixteenth round pick. Okay and then final question here. You're going to take him as rb six. Rb Six with what about Michael Thomas Atas? Whoever your number one wide receiver is are you taking Clyde dealer sixth overall? Eighth. For me I'll still take Thomas in demonte Adams ahead of them but I mean again, if you're GONNA go running back heavy I, think you're you know you're looking at. You know he's going to be in some cases. You know he made he may leapfrog over people are concerned about the injuries are. I mean, I think there's a case for him I think there's a case for him in the top five is wild. I'll take Thomas over him. Still I've had tyreek hill ahead Davante Adams I those to his as little tiered, my second tier one about those guys non PR or half PTR. WHO's your pick I will? Take severe it's weird because he's a catch guy. But in that format I wanNA running back more. Okay. That's downs. Yeah. there. Yeah right now have Jacob six. You've Josh goes over Sanders. In non are unhappy beer. Yeah. I think Jake I I've said this a couple of times you know he yeah. Sixteen game face would have been fourth and carries and third rushing by the way he could. Yeah. I. Just wanted like if you're GONNA if you're going to throw out lsu stats Jamie. Then, Justin Jefferson should probably be your number one rookie. Wide Receiver before if he played with better quarterback. Like. This Yonder Washington played with Patrick Home Tech Yeah. All right. All right guys we had a lot to talk about. So unfortunately, you're not going to hear any of this on the show that publishes tomorrow the that would be Thursday because we already recorded it. So we'll talk maybe a little more by this on Friday if there's more news but the Thursday show is about points per game standouts and trends and things like that. It will not have any Clyde Edwards Allaire discussion.

Melvin Gordon might be the best pick so far like looking back at the year. Obviously girl is great. But he was the here's the number one pick number one. Yeah. Melvin gordon. You got at the back of the first round. I mean, we had when you were at that like ten spot that eleven spot. You're always you're always hoping fell to you.

We've got waivers on the show today. Some news to catch up with. We'll talk about the Monday night game. Plenty to talk about lots of by weeks this week and big games per fantasy owners you have in many leagues three weeks left. Maybe four weeks left depending on your league format. How many teams make the playoffs before you're in fantasy playoffs before you're making your run for a title? We had the playoff primary. I encourage anybody who didn't listen last Wednesday to go back and listen to the wins the episode because we went through the schedules of a bunch of the players the best and worst schedules. Definitely. And it might give you some insight make decisions on who you drop in waivers today. And who you hang onto, you know, the foot clan that are listening right now, you are the smartest of all the foot clan. Because this is the time of year where you're a couple of weeks off from the playoffs. Watch your plant brackets. Maybe you're out of the playoffs right now. And you're trying to weigh in. But this is the time of year where the quitters quick this is oh I lost his last week. I'm done. You're listening. You're not done, and you get to play against teams that are giving up that are not checking the waivers for the drop it like it's hot that aren't aren't doing those things. This is where you start your run to the championship glory. Real quick. I've said if you just had the gets the playoffs. Yeah. Anything can happen. Yeah. I mean, it doesn't matter what your record was in the regular season. If you're in the playoffs, and you've strategized or you've stashed the defense or you have the right quarterback in the right match up. It's going to grab the bull by the horn you can win or you've got Spencer ware. Stupid. Jeremy? Very intimate. Look into our dynasty league Jason lost because Spencer ware scored a touchdown which. Pin stretch should be a sentence. Right. That should not be something that happens in any league. I guess I should say stupid Big, Ben. But or stupid Aaron Jones are all the other players. He has that are really good, by the way Aaron Jones over the last four weeks has the fifth most rushing yards in football. Now. Mike already knows the answer is but did you hear before the show who's number one Nick jump Nick Chubb is number one over the last four weeks in total rushing yards? Girlies number two. I have seen the hot question of who. Would you rather have rest of season at this point between Aaron Jones, Nick Chubb? Ooh, I mean, that's that's a real close one. Because you've got Aaron Jones I think I would still rather have Aaron Jones in Eileen that way as well. And I've now like are you Nick chub? Are you starting Chubb on the by because of those numbers do I get to carry some over? No, then. No, okay. That's probably smart.

Those reviews helped the show. They can also find us on Instagram. We're on Facebook wherever where that wherever where that's social media. The things are at very important, very social. All right. Getting into the Monday night recap. Oh, yes. I actually could game. Yeah. It was a good game. It was it was an entertaining game. And here's here's my takeaway. Like if I had to summarize this for fantasy owners rather than dig through the O eill saquon Barkley at one hundred twenty yards. Yeah. He's good. Here's my actual takeaway. Congratulations to those that don't say on Barclay and Odell Beckham junior. This was a very very important win for the New York Giants if they lose this game to me, it is a very high probability that they turn to someone other than Eli manning this, and you don't want that you do not want that as an Oto Beckham junior owner, you do not want that as a saquon Barkley the owner in. In my opinion, this season your season, of course. Because for of all the deficiencies that he lay mining has. And he has a lot and he has a lot. His propensity to just throw the ball Beckham junior to look to them in the red zone. You want that as a fantasy owner you want his dropped, you know, his check down to saquon situation, you want everything that's going on with Barclay and Beckham you went to continue because it's been great every week. No matter whether they win or lose, do you guys agree with that? Yes. No. I definitely agree. I mean, that's very good for them. The other takeaway for me. I just kept thinking throughout this game jerk. Mckinnon would have been so good and will be so we'll that's actually was the one scheme in offense of line looked pretty good to me from San Francisco. A question was being raised last night on Twitter, of course, because we are very reactionary in hyperbolic, but burrito has been very very good. Like you think heading into next year? Jerick McKinnon coming off the ACLU. I know he has the contracts. We has the the gold that says he should be at the top of the depth chart. But burrito has been very good. I don't I do. They just go right back to McKinnon. Yes percent. I full confidence in that. And part of it is due to burrito. Stature and injury history and being banged up. I think that there you might say his stature and the stature is the same. But the system is nowhere in the injury stuff. Mckinnon's always banged up. No doubt. But they paid him big money to come in. And be that guy. I would have much more confidence in McKinnon taking that role than burrito. Keeping it. But I'm what I mean is where we thought McKinnon would come in. And just absolutely dominate the snaps. Will it be that will be that sixty five seventy percent to McKinnon that you thought you would get or does it drop down to maybe McCaw fifty piss similar what you've seen with. I mean more Alfred Morris had nine carries this game two to breathe a seventeen. It's not like Berita had the whole thing. Brita will go into that secondary role in McCain, and we'll take the template has been Freeman Tevin Coleman. Right. And I remember one of my bold predictions before the season before the injury to McKinnon was that Matt burrito was going to be an actually viable fantasy player even with McKinnon. So it'll be interesting George kill so good nine for eighty three. I watch him because he runs so many downfield routes. He runs these routes that are very similar to what rob gronkowski's done in the past. I watched him. I'm and I'm saying. I really wish I could trade rob gronkowski for George killing dynasty roofs. Don't you have George kill? You won't do it a little swap sqi. We're playing each other this week. And I I realized that rob gronkowski's on by. But he's rob gronkowski gay. I'm good. Do. Title trade tip, by the way. Yeah. The KOMO people say, no, I hit him with the come. I know you wanna do. George kiddle were on a higher profile team with a winning record right now. He would be I mean, the media darling. Because he he is awesome. I mean, and he's a great clear-cut. They showed they showed on the graphic last night. He has a higher percentage of his team's targets in yards at the tight end position more than the number two Zakar. It's and the number three Travis Kelsey you made a very of your free at price at appropriate. Kittle for George kill. I did forty four fab is feeling. Great now. Yes. Too little too little for kiddle. Yeah. Foot clan giveaway dot com. Two days left to win assign saquon Barkley jersey head over there and enter it is free. Let's get into the news. News and notes from around the league. Another chuckles. I just forgot the first piece of news. The fan Thurs wins. You know, the Panthers have wave veteran running back. C J Anderson. We go to Jason's today's Lord look. C J Anderson maybe dropped from your fantasy roster. However. Pick up Cameron Artis Payne. I I still think that the system is from, you know, north or having a system though and having the player to fill that system is different. Chris I in traverse cadet Cameron Artis. Payne is limited in his scope and ability you're not going to get past catching from him. If Christian McCaffrey goes down, we traverse cadets gonna fill the pass catching role and you're going to have some Cameron Artis Payne on the goal line. And I'm gonna you'll weep and you Nash your teeth. If you're the McCaffrey because I don't think you can sign any of those I wouldn't even handcuffing looking for somebody like Josh Adams to handcuff microphone McCaffrey as opposed to somebody on my team. Really? Yeah. As opposed to signing any panther. Okay. I would much rather have that than just don't know who it's going to be the addition of cadet certainly makes murky, but anyway, did you Anderson's careers over probably issue curious Nathan Peterman has been waived. I went back after I got the the sleeper learned the Nathan Peterman had been cut as I swore. I swore. I just saw something about how the bills still have confidence in Peterman. I couldn't remember if it was a rodeo blurb or if I'd seen it on Twitter. But I promise I just saw the Bill signed it. No, I didn't. I didn't dig through Twitter death lets you say when you you have a draft pick. You know, he's he's a rookie last. Yeah. But you go we have full confidence in Peterman. But I mean, they did the the merciful thing so confident that he can play on another team. They can they believe he can excel elsewhere. Yeah. He also has his career done. Well, Brooke speaking, Monday bills coach Sean McDermott said he's still confident. Thank you. I knew still govern it. What a jerk way speaking Monday and Monday evening, they kind of. Yes, I why does your one in Hawaii doing this was he doing the fingers crossed? Why back the GM? Actually believed Sean McDermott. Oh, well, my goodness. He's gone because you're going to start him again. I don't trust you. It's the conversation for moneyball. Yeah. Brad Pitt walks as like you can't play him anymore. Well, I'm the man to make the decision. Yeah. But he's off the teeth. Yeah. Exactly. That's pretty funny Marvin Jones day today with a bone bruise. This is good news in the sense. ACL MC L intact. His whether he's acted this week is still in question. So he could miss a week. But it is good news for Marvin Jones owners. Devante Parker week to week with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. Okay. Janine granted in tears. Yeah. That's I mean, that's at least a positive report for the manager came grant, he did not tear his achilles. You can't expect them to be back anytime soon. But at least he doesn't have to go through that recovery. Right. Sammy Watkins is expected to return for week eleven against the Rams. Oh, yes. It's very important. A knife is very important that you know, this now because and he might have been able to go against the cardinals and they made the right decision to sit him down. But it's very important. It's a Monday night game. So you might have been sweating it as an owner. And I think he is going to play I would have confidence in that watch the practice reports make sure he's practicing, but Sammy Watkins supposed to go against the Rams p Carroll said Chris Carson will play on Thursday night football against Green Bay Suri will be I think he will. It will see here's the thing. And we're gonna get into it. I know you guys both have Rashad penny as a pickup. Yep. I've owned the Carson penny. Combo in a bunch of leagues or not a bunch leagues. But in the listener league in a couple of others, and I'm the one in this group. Now, you guys could be completely right? Reshad penny. Could be a great ad. I get people adding him. I do not like it. I have not liked trying to dance around and find the right guy to start and Rashad penny. Yes. The breakout game forty percent of offensive plays for Rashad penny. Fifty seven percent for Mike Davis. You add Chris Carson in that mix. I just get frightened. I agree with I agree with you in the sense that I hate Pete Carroll and. Rusting whatever peach cobbler is going to say about his running backs. He says Chris Carson said that's why say sure he's gonna. Yeah. Because you can't trust anything any reports coming out of Seattle. So far this year have just been completely. Throw it against the wall. See what sticks and you're if you blindly pin a tail on the donkey of his good a chance of getting the right backup pegged down as whatever Pete Carroll is saying, so I the reason I think penny is a pickup is because the talent is there and if Carson's injured or if he takes over the number two role, maybe, but I don't like it. I don't want to roll the gamble with Pete Carroll. He not wasted my bench spots on these running back rotations in Seattle in that league. And so that it's a little bit more. Like, you're gonna sign him. You're gonna lock your bench spot down. And I think you have a equal chance at zero as you do another good game from Rashad pin? Yeah. I'm with Jason the penny. Will he's not a pickup to play this week. We'll talk about guys unless Carson's out, and then he's playing if Carson's out or no. I don't even know if I do that. Yeah. I probably would. But he's just it's a stash at this point to see does he actually rise to the top. Speaking of stashes, I need to talk about Joe flacco Joe flacco is going to start if he's healthy enough to play John Harbaugh said he doesn't need to practice. So you're not going to know if he can't play Lamar Jackson and Robert Griffin the third of both going to give get an opportunity to start potentially compete for that. I think the perception in Baltimore would be that Robert Griffin may give them a better chance to win. And the Mark Jackson is the better. It's a better opportunity to develop him. And they're right on the cusp of like, what are we doing in this division? So I'm feeling uncomfortable. Stashing Lamar Jackson. I I have them right now. Because I got him a homes by coming up. Well, how do you guys feel about those players been spots are very precious during a week in which six teams are on. By it's very hard to stash guys right now. Yeah. I I don't know that you have to stash these players through there by you know. You know, you might be able to leave Lamar Jackson on waivers and still be able to pick him up next week, especially if Robert guar they play this week they were on by last week. Oh that that's right. But if Robert Griffin is the starter if Robert Griffin is named the starter. I still think by the playoff matchups. You know, does Robert Griffin. You say gives them the best chance to win. Will he pull out the victories? It's been a while some flacco successful. Yeah. Flacco could be back then if was going to miss a couple of weeks and Robert Griffin fills in Lamar Jackson is a hold that may be too costly for your fantasy roster. Yeah. From what I have seen talking about the Joe flacco injury. He doesn't need to practice. But he is still been on crutches and pro-football dog has talked about how it would blow his mind if you go from crutches on the sideline to plane like that. That's a that's a different beast. If you need the crutches. There's a problem with the hip. He doesn't think it's a serious hip injury. Jack Doyle that cost them half the year. But it seems like this could be a multi week injury. You just need to pay attention to to you know, reports not practice. Not did he participate. Right. But was he, you know, just normal on the sideline walking around or he's still using crutches. It's it depen-. -pends on your quarterback situation for me. I don't think he is an absolute mustache, but you have Patrick Mahomes if he's on by I'm not stashing. Lamar Jackson because there's there's no chance that you're going to play them are Jackson over Patrick Mahomes. But if you have one of those mid level starter guys like view of Russell if you have Russell Wilson Kirk cousins Andy Dalton Ryan Fitzpatrick. These guys are kind of the the only quarterback on your team. Then I'm going to stash Lamar Jackson. Just see what happened. If Lamar starts this week. He is a top ten quarterback because of the rushing yardage top twelve I won't say top ten top eleven to somewhere. We we are kind of glossing over Robert Griffin. Sure. And he runs to not to that degree. Okay anymore. No. I I would not I have no interest in Robert Griffin. If he's the starter myself buccaneers coach Dirk cutter says Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to start against the giants. This is one of those very interesting situations for by the way. I'm calling him lame duck Dirk cutter at this point his he's going to be fired. If they play Jameis Winston Vega at the opportunity to maybe double triple check whether they want to keep him. But if they play him, and he gets hurt his contract is guaranteed for next year. So they're playing all Robert Griffin game. Yeah, they're playing the game where it's like you might as well just put Fitzpatrick back out there to throw for four hundred three yards and no touchdowns. Buccaneers have waived Chandler, canton, Zarro in a yin Yang move. You lose C J Anderson, but you also lose channel cans are you win. Some you lose some huge news as Brooks put it in the dock Bengals of hired. Hugh Jackson, his special assistant to the head coach Hughes special assistant to the head coach. Oh, man that was the kind of Jackson. If I if I was declared, I'm gonna tell you guys this on this show right here right now, you love it. If I was named. No, I don't love it. If I was named the head coach of a football team. And I want my buddies. I wanna my buddies to be with me. Yeah. You would be specialist. Jason, mike. You would be a special. Alright. Heck, yeah. Brooks do you want to be a specialist or do? Sure. It doesn't figure it out. I will figure it out. I hope that you get a head coaching job in the National Football League. Andy, I feel like I could do as good a job as as many of these. I I would definitely prefer to be a special assistant to the head coach then head coach. Yes, chump seems off guy would just be a hype man. Oh, no. No, no. You'd be my press secretary's. Oh is is. So when we do the when when I do the Pressler's, I would just put you guys up front. You guys defend me like the president. Yeah. All right. Let's get into the waivers before we do that. I wanna thank Harry's as a special offer for fans of this show.

Well, you make the big bucks. I mean like Ryan Fitzpatrick if you've ever seen him without a beard, you know, he needs the beard big beard bucks teams returning from the by this week the Vikings Texans Broncos and ravens, and then you've got six teams on buying week eleven the NFL likes to make it fun for fantasy owners the forty Niners bills. Brown's dolphins. Jetson patriots. Hey, and then next week is the final by week in the chiefs and Rams are on by. So they get the Monday night game. And then they get they get some time off and you get to replace. I don't know like thirteen players from those two amazing fantasy teams let's start with some waiver wire pickups at the wide receiver position. Again, we want to pay attention to players coming back off the bye, those are the most likely sneaky little pickups and the big one there for me is Cortlandt Sutton big. However, he is fifty six percent on so. Likelihood that he's owning your league is high. If he's not pay attention, take a search. See if he's there. Yeah. I I wanna point out if he is there, and I I realized you know, he's he's been held onto. But what his situation is is just fantastic after DT was traded to Houston and they played Houston. We said it's such a shame because I want something so bad, but it was such a bad time because he's got a tough match-up in Houston. And then a BI week that's gone listen to the rest of the schedule here the Los Angeles chargers. That's not too bad. Pittsburgh. That's great Cincinnati. That's great San Francisco. That's great Cleveland. That's great Oakland. That's great. That's it. That's the championship week give me court, Lund's Sutton. I look at in this very similarly to Kennedy golladay in that the law of averages the opportunity that talent the equal production most weeks and Kenny golladay this past week that came to fruition right? He had a very good week. Scored a touchdown at six catches. I think it's going to. Turn that direction for Cortlandt Sutton soon. So he's a great pickup. We all agree. I think he's one of our favorite pickups. No doubt. Who are your other favorites at the wide receiver position? And share the ownership percentage, the people can whether they can expect them in their leak. Sure, I'm pretty interested in Anthony Miller, Chicago Bears rookie he has started to come to life five for one twenty two and a score this past week since week seven he's been targeted at least six times in every game. I mean, he's playing a lot out of the slot. Which is I like that combination with the way that Mitch Trubisky is playing where he's very mobile quarterback. And just Mitch made a I mean, he went full France Kafka metamorphosis from the beginning of the season where he was just an absolute check down machine. I'm not going to throw the ball deep. Something happened to the show comfort level anythi got body. It's coming in a brand new office time. But this was all this was who he was last year to just not don't field, and then some he got triggered by Jason's com. Correct. And he said I'm going to throw deep more than anyone in the league and guys like Anthony Miller are huge benefactors from it and the schedule like Jason talked about for Cortlandt Sutton, the schedule for Anthony Miller aside from this week against Minnesota is very favorable for the Chicago Bears. He's my number two pick up as well behind Sutton. If something was available. Anthony Miller is only fourteen percent owned. I like the progression. You generally see rookies, you know, you start to learn a little bit more about right arm and the team becomes more confident in them. And he's got game breaking ability, and I don't like picking up these fringe wide receivers that are not game breaking type of players because it just caps the upside in. I'd rather put my chips on a guy like Anthony Miller or DJ more Carolina wide receiver who was. Or for twenty but he can break a play deep. Yeah. And just to finish the conversation on Anthony Miller Anthony Miller back in September. If you remember I believe it was in the cardinals game he separated his shoulder twice in the game. And a lot of people are saying he's going to need surgery. But since that time he's now gotten he looks like he's healthier and rounding into shape that slowed some of that progression. I really liked the talent of of Anthony Miller when you watch them on the field. He just looks like a great pickup. If if I'm looking for a lesser owned player this week KiKi coochie is you still interested with Maria's Thomas there? I have none. So I'd love to hear this because I have no interest in Kuti. So I think KiKi Kuti in that role with I believe in the Houston Texans offense and with the Mary's Tom Thomas replacing we'll fuller. It's not like they added him Kikuchi. I was interested in when we'll fuller was there too. He doesn't. Have the same sure volume as win will fuller was out. But I think from the slot on a high powered offense. What we've seen so far when coots he's been on the field. He's been pretty good. He's been electric. He he gets the targets and Bill O'Brien was this is this is my favorite. This is quote of the week. Bill O'Brien was asked is Cousy going to be able to play this week and his answer was sure so sure trending hit the shore of the sewer. I hit my kids with the shore all the time trending in the right direction. At least obviously my issue with Gucci is whether or not he's back from the hamster issue. Mike, are you more interested in in Kuti or MAURICE Harris? It's been reported that Jamison Crowder needs another MRI on the ankle. He is not confident. That's basically what's happening. He's going out there. He's not confident with the ankle. He's missed four weeks in a row MAURICE Harris five for fifty two and five targets if you. You had to throw your chips into one of those two players. Who would you do go with hairs? I think he's going to be the safer of the two in a Kootenai could reemerge, but it I just the hamstring concerns and marriage Thomas, I know, you're copying him into the wolf will fuller role. But Damaris Thomas can't do it will fuller does not even fifty percent of what fuller does fast, but he was on the outside stretching the field. He was running deep routes. I mean that I'm just saying role. Yeah. But yeah, it just how successful can he be is is my question. So I would rather go with Harissa player who's a sending. But is also not exciting Harris over dachshund dachshund scored in two straight weeks. Harris seems to be more of the PR guy running out of the slot role. Dachshund Osceola scoring chance dachshunds ceiling is certainly higher. I don't love washing. So like with Washington, nobody loves wash. Yeah. They're Washington fans. Don't even love washing half of it is Alex Smith not doing much, and then the other is three the next. I know it's crazy. You look at like, oh, they made a mistake letting Kirk cousins go, wait a minute. They're six and three, but they're they're upcoming schedule Houston. That's terrible. Dallas and Philly after that is not great. So I'm not excited about the Washington wide receiver core when you combine in like I want I can take a shot at them when they've got a good scheduled this last week looked like the opportunity was there in the next three weeks. I I like him against Houston, Houston run. Yeah. Peterson is not gonna do Nelson's been great against wide receivers over the last hairs moves around in the slot. I get some of the other matchups, but we'll have to see what happens there. What about this guy? Moncrieff? That's why I wanted to bring up because Dante Moncrieff he's eleven percent. He he's he's very available and he got off to the slow start through the three weeks. But since week four he is averaging almost seventy yards a game. And that includes a game where he put up a goose her which is a pace for over eleven hundred yards on the season. He's got the big play ability. He's been the most reliable fantasy wide receiver in Jacksonville gets to take on Pittsburgh. So, you know, where I'm going to go you slap that bass again. No, I've if Joe Haines on them, I got my concerns. Well, if you're the Sean Jackson owner to you prefer to Sean Jackson to Dante monkey. Yes. Barely. I still would go. Sean Jackson overdone Tim on. Yes. I would I would trust the quarterback shockingly more than I than I would trust. Blake bortles. The Sean Jackson also has a longer history of of being successful any interest in Josh Reynolds with Cooper cop-out. We talked about a briefly yesterday. He's owned in every in every league, mild sixty four point over under this week with. The chiefs game. So there could be a lot of opportunity to go around in Mexico City brought up Reynolds the last time, here's why I'm a little bit more interested in Reynolds. This Cooper Cup injury than the last one this one. They know Cup is gone. They can't just patchwork a week. They've got to say, okay. What is our offense rest of season? We have to work something in and develop the who's going to step up into that role and take over for the rest of the season the playoffs the Super Bowl run as they're hoping. Yeah. And and he's going to get the the least coverage of those other two guys they'll be opportunities completely available. I mean, he's only own three percent of leagues. So about Burt Reynolds. Oh, the status self. He's a mustache ver ver it. Would you start Burt Reynolds? Or would you start Josh Lewin? Mustache league. It's a mustache Lee must actually got hurt. Burt Reynolds fancy football league. I would go. Josh Los Angeles Rams of to this points. According to sharp football are running eleven personnel. Which means three wide receivers are on the field. Ninety eight percent of the time. Yeah. The gimme gimme that's that. Josh reynolds. Does that change though with the injury you roll? Gerald edit out more often with higby we'll have to see he's in streaming discussion. But just saying Reynolds will be on the field, sir. Circling back real quick. I did want to look up the Texans defense because we were asked about this last week about you know, we had all these stats last year. When are they coming back of the rolling six week because you can't just take the defense on the year? The last six weeks we're going to on all of our matchups this week. We've got that data to say how defenses have been doing and Houston. They are second against quarterbacks third against running backs and fifth against wide receivers. Tom five against all three of those positions over the last six weeks. They've been a defense. You do not wanna play sure and last wide receiver. I personally just want to at least bring up John Ross. He got six targets in the absence of AJ green for the Cincinnati Bengals he came through with a touchdown. You hear that Brooks? I got John Rawson in the dynasty league. I'm gonna play him against you. So he's a good play. John John raw? He's like, please. Please. Do it. John Rawson gronk for Kittle. Let's make let's make a deal. Let's make do you think Brooks? I'm not doing this, right? This week John Ross has the tough match-up against Baltimore, which is pretty gross. But if you're going to pick him up after that, you could Cleveland Denver the chargers. Did you interesting? Yeah. He. Today's Jack by them. Did you say what are you looking at Houston's last five games last six last six games? Here's who they played Broncos offense. Dolphins offense Jaguars offense bills offense Cowboys offense. So yeah. I mean you got to discern. I mean, obviously, they can only do what they can do which is dominating, right, but fault them for being great. But now they play the and you look week from now we'd be like and they play the Redskins offense. So it's not very impressive. But you you look at the pieces there as well. And you you look at that line with JJ watt. And did you say pizzas, the P? Oh, I wish I wish I did running backs. I've wanted to. I just I like pizza are I running backs. I this is the most difficult place because I feel like we could all have vastly different favorites in terms of waiver wire pickups at the running back position in the truth is I think it matters a lot about your team makeup. Now, Mike is chocolate. I'm just laughing because I was trying to think of the line where it's not great buff like the list of running backs this week. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's it's a strange. That's why we spent so much time on the wide receivers because they're interesting why. And there's an argument to be made where literally Frank is the best pickup this week four fantasy on and he doesn't even play this week. Yeah. And neither does Elijah McGuire who who's probably in that list as well. But as a fantasy owner, you gotta look at I think, obviously. My goodness. I for me for me is Josh adult Adams is my favorite pickup. I mean, if you look at the efficiency metrics for the running backs and Philadelphia team that I still think is going to compete down the wire for a playoff spot. Josh Adams is averaging six point two five yards per attempt over last three games. And if you contrast that with how bad Cory Clements been and how ordinary Wendell small been he's the biggest upside stash for me. But maybe you don't need enough site stash. Maybe you need something else. The problem with Josh Adams. I agree. I think he's currently the best runner on the team. But they're Peterson's going to keep the split the way it is. Even if things he said, he's given more to Josh out. I I understand that. But what's more? He'll be in the eleven Terry range, twelve carry range a hill. He'll be the Corey Clement, and he'll do more with it than Clement has been doing. But you're right is not enough work in another running back in time. Share the guy that I would be looking for. He's available now in about half of leagues is Royce. Freeman. He's coming off the bye he was injured, but the upcoming schedule that I just gave for Cortlandt Sutton is identical to Royce Freeman. They are teammates. So Royce Freeman and Philip Lindsey were both start -able assets before the injury the schedule being an a were. Yeah. I think so enough touchdown. You could start Royce. If you're just hoping that I don't think I wouldn't have said that. I mean, I I don't think the last three games before the injury five thirty one no touchdowns nine for twenty two touchdowns. Thirteen for thirty seven and one touchdown. If you don't surpass thirty seven yards rushing. You're not to start a bla- set to me. Yeah. Well, I mean, he's he's had four touchdowns in eight games. And the schedule is easier in a week running back class. I would be fine picking up Royce Freeman. Would you rather pick up Royce Freeman though or play a guy that has guaranteed workload like Doug Martin taking on air Zona this week fifteen for sixty one last week? Doug, Martin is gross. I get it. I'm gonna hide my children. And I'm going to pick up. Doug martin. Yes. The frame the two I would play Doug Martin. He's getting the kids around. No, no cramp is eat your kids. But yeah, I mean did just refresh my memory for a moment. Yeah. Mike where did crap is coming from correct? This is like a originally. I'm remember. Where your engine? No. Like, why did no I'm not looking for the real story of ballers now looking for the movie plot Mike talking about like why did he originally get compared to cry because he was coming back off of the of an injury. I think it was last year where you guys were getting a little bit hot and bothered for Doug, Martin retired. Santa Claus is coming to chance. And I said no cramp is coming. Yeah. So he didn't actually eat any children last year. He'd certainly did how I'm okay. He is getting work though. I mean fifteen carries there's not a lot of waiver wire running. So you can get to get fifteen gears. It's like him and Frank gore. That's it into blissed. Jalen Rashard or cramps? They're both owned in forty seven percent. Forty eight percent of the league's going against their Zona. Do you play cramps over Jalen retry? Yeah. I think you gotta go Doug Martin. I mean, the work has been there. And honestly, he hasn't looked terrible. Not. There was a moment when we were watching the games and to running back had some juice ripped off a good run. When Jason Jason said OA who was that. I said Jason that was Doug Martin. Jason immediately ripped his face off. Yeah, I'm faceless. Now, don't go to YouTube. He ripped his beard beca. If you're Joe mixon owner, a reminder, go get geo Bernard Bernard is twenty-five owned he snuck onto a lot of waiver wire simply because you can't you couldn't hold them while he was hurt. But Uber nod is going to get all the work again if Joe mixing goes down, and that's something that can happen. Yes. Jean bernard. If you have cream hunt, please Graham, Spence aware, if you have Todd Gurley pleased grab Malcolm Brown. And I know we talked about it earlier. But Rashad penny would be a huge pickup for me this week. Yes. He's available in almost every league. Would you rather pick up penny or Davis at this point? Well Davis is probably owned. I believe cars in place, and if Carson plays than if you have to pick one if you're gonna make me pick when I'll take penny because what if on Thursday penny gets everything because he's a first round pick. I mean, right at that point. If you told me Carson's out, it's a coin flip to me on who has a better Thursday night game against the Packers. Let's talk tight ends. I don't know. What's more discussing right now tight ends or running backs on the waiver wire. I think is tight ends. Look some of these guys that maybe you thought you could get by with. They kind of stunk last week earned in was terrible three for thirty four going into the bye. I don't pick up Herndon. No Watson had one from one. Almost had a touchdown. I don't care. He he's a risky play. CJ Uzzaman hasn't capitalized on a lack of Tyler I for or Tyler Kroft. He doesn't seem to be a core part of the offense even without AJ green. And he got he has Baltimore coming up. The the only one I'm looking at little bit sideways. Jeff Hier men in in Denver. But Jason made a pretty compelling argument. As to why he was used the way he was used coming off of week nine ten for eighty three and a touchdown. Looks really nice. But you're playing with fire there. I mean who are your favorite pickups at the tide imposition. But don't have any you. It's one. It's Vance McDonald dance McDonald if he's there, right? But a Jeff Harmon is interesting. He is the fourth most red zone targets among tight ends. He. He it is. We only have the one game sample. That's that's what's upsetting about this coming off the bye week. And what I mean by one game sample. I mean after the trade of Damaris Thomas hire men was the man who picked up the slack in filled that target. Void you had hoped. Sutton would see this huge surge in targets. But it went to the tight end position. He's interesting native in net. Yeah. I was just going to bring him up. I hate to say it because I wanted it to be a Dixon, but Monette has been involved. He wasn't you know, he didn't do much in his last game out. But he down Green Bay second in the league against opposing tight ends. Yeah. I mean, I in this landscape. I think you could do worse than Nick Vinet. Yeah. It's it's gross. I mean, maybe you take them. If you say Joan who Smith, but Jonas Smith doesn't run a lot of routes. You have George Kitto rob gronkowski or David joke. You there on by this week's you're making this decision. Well, Ricky seals Jones is a name. That's enough. Yeah. Really? Yeah. Nine targets five or sepsis for fifty one yards gets Oakland. You know, he's run the tenth most tight end routes. That's more than e Bronner read or Howard. And the last two games with odds of coordinator change, thirty six and thirty seven routes which a lot for tighter. So he would do he would probably be a head of some of those. I agree with you Vance McDonald if he's there that's the pickup outside of him. It's probably hire men and Ricky seals Jones. I'm feeling a lot of pain talk. He's good. Mike are UCLA's Jones are hiring. Oh start mill one higher. He'll take two zero. Please. I think I would go higher men. All right. We have quarterbacks streaming options. Coming up here momentarily. I want to touch on defenses. Arizona. That's yeah. Arizona's Arizona defensive versus the Oakland Raiders. And they are available nearly everywhere. They're they're going to be the the the hot sought after streamer this week. All right. Yes. Yes. You think why they've been a good defense? They're at home. They're guess. Yeah. No writers. I don't disagree with the pickup at all say. I don't know how much buzz is going to surround an Zona defense. Sure. Well, you can't play the bills this week. So you've got to play against the raiders, whether at least, that's the way I see it. So Zona very interesting other than that Brooks put in a Tom Selleck sneaky defense must stash of the week. We'll give give credits. Kyle. Okay. Kyle put that in Jacksonville against buffalo next week. So he's saying if you wanna stash Jeep defense you can stance Jacksonville. There's you would think that would be the biggest home run on earth. Yeah. And yet Matt Barkley. Well, Josh Allen. We'll see. But other guys for this week Carolina against Detroit pit you. Are you do you wanna play Pittsburgh against Jackson? I am fine with that. I think Pittsburgh's defensive line this last week showed that they are. They are starting to click and whenever you play against Blake Bortles. You have the chance for pick six sacks. Now, they're picked seven pick ten both defenses are owned is Saint percentage Pittsburgh against Jacksonville or Baltimore against the Bengals because they're both owned in fifty five percent of the league. Oh. Sammy. I baltimore. I think they've got a better defense Brooks, we need to we need to put that fifty five drop in like on every sheet that I got like on every board because I can't miss that. Man. What we need is. I need Brooks needs to be able to their need a big button. Well that could get Staples easy. But we could lose most of our subscribers in one episode or gain most of them. I would imagine we would lose about. Episode if you had that kind of accent. Anything else on defense has guys. Can I move on? Yeah. We're good. Full stream ahead. Jason did you did you come in here? And try to disrupt me because my stream you don't get to take to why it's not really a take to. I put Dak in there as my streamer. And then I said, well if Lamar was to start I would pivot to Lamar so it sounds like you're taking too. I'm taking one point five in the DACA says your backup pivot was deck, but that because must stream this week. Absolutely. So we hold hands. Let's go into guess, we'll say Dax Dak against Atlanta is a great streaming option. Jason I agree with you. Yeah. He's he's available in most leagues. He's been. Actually, if you look at the last five or six weeks, he's been fine. Russian the ball now with Amari Cooper in toe, and you play against Atlanta, and I loved it is in Atlanta. Meaning that the falcons aren't gonna do what happened last week in Cleveland, which is just be terrible team for some reason. Offense of prob. For. Sure, right. I think Atlanta will put up the points and Dak will have to come back. He'll get a lot of rushing yards and uses new weapon Amari Cooper. I I mean, there's a lot lot of worst players. You could grab them Dak this week. So we'll share Dak and then I want to say if Lamar starts against Cincinnati that defense has been atrocious. Argo for Lamar Jackson rushed for one hundred is going to restaurant or yards in that game. So. No doubt about it. He it's probably worse for the team. Right. He's gonna look he's going to drop back in the pocket. And he's he's gonna get opportunities to Russia's, you know, take them. So we'll share both those how I love it. Now, if Lamar place do you play Lamar against Cincinnati Zach is what I would do. I would as well. All right where what what is best happening? I don't like this love fest over here. Go way. Mike now, my backup to the backup was going to be Marcus mariota against Indianapolis. But that's my I had no idea Marcus mariota versus the Indianapolis Colts. I just want to read you, a align. Real quick twenty six for three hundred twenty yards in two times or not. That's that's a pretty pretty awesome passing. That was Blake Bortles people against the Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks are safe. If you're not, Derek Anderson. You are safe against the Indianapolis Colts on top of that. Mario finally looks healthy the Corey Davis breakout possible breakout game last week against the New England Patriots. I think it it means a lot to me that Corey Davis had that game against Gilmore. So I think that mariota is a very safe top ten guy this week. We didn't bring up Corey Davidson the waivers. Maybe we should have sixty eight percent own. Here's the comedic. Oh, go pick them up. The the perplexing thing about Corey Dave's right ups that you would consider to be good matchups for Corey Davis. You know, six fancy points against buffalo nine against Miami for you know, his Greg games home games against Philadelphia. New England twenty plus points. I just he plays competition. Someone accused me of being at which is amazing to me. They said how come you guys keep trashing on Davis? And I think to myself this Corey Davis have a bigger fan than me. He was he was consensus all three of us put him in as a breakout in the UT K. The reason we have made jokes about Corey Davis is because he's a number one who before this past week had one relevant fans. See week. It's just becomes kind of like smile through the pain situation with Corey Dave's because he's so talented, and we all like him. Well, part of the problem is Mario Dr Yoda. Yeah. And Marianas looked really good the last two weeks. I love your stream you brought up. How Blake Bortles had a great week against them last week. He was my stream of the week the reason that was the colts the reason was the colts because Derek Carr put up two hundred and forty three Sam darnold had a huge attack the colts. Yes, m Mario is can he's competent enough to get it done. Yeah. Yeah. No doubt about it. So. Yeah. I think that's it Brooks you got anything else. You got to anything going on George kill trade perhaps now. Brooks. I'll give you rob. Listen to me. I'll give you rob gronkowski Carlos Hyde. Now in marshawn Lynch, I'm fine. You realize like the trade started very strong. Then you made it worse by adding those two running backs into it also include echinacea, Saint Brown Brown lessons semi need them playoffs. I hope you don't make the playoffs. Hey, check out draft dot com slash ballers for your daily fantasy needs. And we will see you tomorrow goodbye here by foot clan. Thank you.

Welcome to the fantasy footballers podcast coming to you from draft dot com studios with your hose, Andy Holloway, Jason Moore and Mike Reid. Let's go. 'nother almost upset in the books my friends each and every week you can count on it. What? Okay. The same for the matchup shows. I said I nailed it was it. It was Tennessee game hasn't really an almost. Well, it sure upset I get credit if they almost upset or win. That's true. That's how I choose to frost them. I thought that game line was in Saint six points when we did the matchup show Dallas that was that was crazy, but Amari Cooper, man. Yeah. We'll talk moving a little bit. Yeah. You're gonna force feed him. But I I saw a breakdown by Brian Baldinger. Did you see that? I did not he showed this single play with the offensive line for Dallas in slow motion. And this was a play where they had their entire line. And it looked. Like, you had blindfolded each linemen and told them to randomly block, and they all blocked random people and nobody blocked the linebacker. So the second that Z got the ball the linebacker was there in everybody else's busy just doing random things. It was it was basically just saying what is happening in Dallas. Well, they did fire their ovens of London go. Yeah. Last week. So maybe they replaced him with nobody. Just. Go out and block water. Well, welcome in to the fantasy footballers podcast any Mike and Jason back again, Tuesday, November sixth Brooks is here Brooks. How are you doing this fine morning after your team got a vis rated at home? I'm still doing great. That's what's so great about Brooks bird. You are also got beat at in our dynasty league with the second most points in the league this week, which has happened almost every time. We it's it's unreal. I feel so bad for you Brooks. I was you know, touting my own sad stories of having a super team that was struggling to begin the year. But your team in our dynasty league is just are you the high? You're the second highest points scored on the season. He is the highest. Oh, the highest fantastic. Congratulations on your sub five hundred record. So Brooks is the highest and he's foreign five. He's I'm the second highest six and three. Yeah. You need to up your defense Brooks, you gotta defense your horse. You're letting everybody score all. Twist in the nine if I'm glad you're always, okay, bro. As fancy football. That's fantasy football in Italy. I'm sure it's our fault. Our advice. It's probably our focus. We beat you parts through. But we did have the Monday night game last night. We can recap that a little bit. Don't forget to follow us over on Twitter at the F F ballers, and then YouTube YouTube dot com slash the fantasy football. Did you guys hear that? They're going to get rid of the like button on Twitter. I've heard sin discussions, Mr. Jack, Jack Twitter. He does what he wants. And I won't like that. Well, he he says it's because he wants to create more positive interaction in actual discussions. Yeah. He's going to replace it with an interesting button. Yes. Whatever it is. I'm going to get a lot of them. Yes. You are very Marcus mariota twenty one for twenty nine to forty and two. Ran the ball ten times. Even though it was only four thirty two yards. He did run in a touchdown. Derrick. Henry was barely on the field. Stola touchdown, but Dion Lewis had a career or not a career a season high touches takeaways from both sides of the ball last night. Well, from the from the Tennessee side, and you don't pay it not use Rochman. Yes. The clear dart off the microphone. Okay. Hold on. Hold on. Go. I don't think the Mike pick that up. Don't worry. Yeah. No up smoking them. Dion Lewis, Durkin resp- lit that. Is the most thing living. Well, exactly, they they they said, hey, you know, what dealing Lewis is our best running back and we need to get better as an offense. And we're just going to use him. Derrick Henry is going to become maybe a goal linebacker. Maybe a short. You know, if we need an inch powered up the middle with the big otherwise it was completely Dion Lewis and reminds lyndale white you remember him. Oh, yes. Who was actually valuable say he was on Tennessee watching only the goal. I'm back launching Derrick Henry is it's so painfully frustrate. But does this does this now say do you have a true asset in Dion Lewis because if Dan Lewis is getting this kind of work nineteen Carey's he's going to be great. He's a talented running back for fantasy. I would I look he start worthy yet past couple of games has been good. I mean, I'd rather have Dion Lewis than. Elisa mcguire. Aladin collins. No, give me Colin's. Yeah. Key. Mccown's I I think I would rather have while four for sixty through the air was solid Lewis Corey Davis. Six for fifty six didn't score should have scored ten targets. This was a better game for Tennessee. All the way around the offense looked like it could, you know, do something. And then Zeke on the other side he fought against a defensive front focused on him seventeen for sixty one Amari Cooper five for fifty and a touchdown. So Zeke did have four for fifty one through the air. So he does the design streets to him this year have been fun. His fantasy day was was fine regardless of the poor rushing put. Yeah, I think owners wanted a little more always want. Boy, he he's outside the top twelve. So I don't think that those. Okay. All right. The Amari Cooper usage was. Expected you knew he was going to be forced fed when they gave up a first round pick for him. I thought it was okay. The offense is broken. Sure. Sure. I've even wolf I every I mean, even even the Monday night crew got in on the hey Garrett. Maybe throw the ball on first. And just every once in a while. It's terrible. It's disgusting to watch just make sure the defense says has to actually think about stance, we know a thing or two about VAT offense about running up the middle and I down. Yeah. The play calling is the biggest issue there. I think more so than Dax play more. So than talent, you know, they they have pieces this tip could win. And by the way, the coaching change these happen immediately. I forgot about for a good part of the game. I forgot about how bad the announcing lows. Yeah. And then I on muted it. Oh, I thought it's true as genuinely try meter data. Oh, yeah. It's Monday night. I genuinely thought Jason Witten was. This was by far his best. Really? I didn't like like booger was talking about Jason Witten. I still he wasn't there. He would refer to he wouldn't say you he would refer to him as Jason Witten. Jason Witten was missing on this play Jason Witten. I was like just aren't you talking next to him basically is in the in the mobile. Yeah. All right. News notes. News and notes from around the league. Well, I don't would you say the aged green news is if panic worthy. No. Because it's kind of good news where I mean, let's fill people in. Yeah. It's it's we already knew that he was going to miss some games. The worry was he was going to need foot surgery. Maybe miss the rest of the season. If if news went sour, and he does not need foot surgery still going to miss at least two weeks. So it's I mean, I don't know. Can you call it? Good news. Not really, but it could have been much worse. I would call it. Good news. If you have aged green. You saw the alerts coming through you were in a panic trying to figure out what you're going to do. And if he's only going to miss two games that definitive though that is not the definitive report. The report is at into after a couple of value going to be reevaluated. And I have some concerns about the long term health of a guy. That's missed prolonged stretches of his career TOA injuries. So that's fair. You know, depending on your situation, I'm not saying you're not gonna be able to count on him for the fantasy playoffs. But I made. A decision in my dynasty league that I I wasn't sure. And I'd had a lot of injuries. So I moved AJ green. We know at least it's gonna miss a couple of games. This week is a very good on paper matchup for Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals if he's missing AJ green. But he's at home against New Orleans. Are you okay with the other options there? I know we talked about it being downgrade for the offense. But you do have other weapons. How do you feel about? About eight seeing and Andy Dalton Joe mixing and calm still. Okay. Playing him. You have their first round pick of John Ross from last year. He's returned to practice. We'll see what he can do. Josh reynolds. Most people probably haven't heard about him. But he was a fourth round pick. He has some juice like, I don't I don't think Josh Reynolds is a complete bomb. So I'm not I'm not going to just say, you know, I don't want anything to do with the. But the Cincinnati. Yeah, I'm sorry. Josh Malone is so I was thinking of. Yeah. That makes more sense. Yeah. I was like why not Reynolds, but Josh Malone just Malone. Jason I don't like Andy Dalton, but I I'm still fine with Boyd and mix and personal issues. Well, ever since you dressed up as yeah. On halloween. He's a soured to me. But no, I I think. I think without AJ green. They they will struggle. I I looked at the match up almost made anti-doping, my surname streamer, and I went. Yeah. Now going to do that. I thought about it too. But the upside wasn't there for me without green. Sure. All right more. We've officially reached the point where the Levy on bell saga is as annoying or more annoying than Zeke one last year agreed lead bell tweets. Farewell miami. That's all. And then there's this weirdness seems weird at first that Adam Schefter saying, hey, he doesn't need to come back at all to be a free agent. Everyone was saying, oh, you he's you know, has to be here by whatever it is the tenth in order to accrue free agent status. It's really the exact nothing has changed. Basically what it is is he's a free agent next year, but he can be franchised tagged. If he doesn't come by. Then then they can franchise tag him at the exact same tag cost and at the time, which trade it doesn't seem like they'd want to do that. I wouldn't imagine. They would wanna do that would be some digging in on both sides. They did that then it's like, okay. We'll just take your career away year by year. That would be unbelievable. That'd be so stupid. That would. I mean, would you want to be? A free agent and go to Pittsburgh if Pittsburgh was doing something like that. I would think twice. I wouldn't go. A superstar. But I mean, well money talks if it's works giving you the biggest contract. Sure, you're going to go take. The what's interesting is. Does the player sort of win. I know he missed an entire season and is going to miss out on a lot of money chooses to sit out. But if he's if the Steelers don't retaliate him and now, he's just a free agent and gets to go sign a contract. He won. He got exactly what he wanted. Yeah. I would agree with that. I would agree with that. And they save a lot of money, and they have a backup that they just tried out a year early. So Geronimo Alison big news. Packers wind out may need core muscle surgery, regardless of whether he does or not when you listen to their Mike McCarthy talk about his injury. He calls it significant big. He's missing time. No matter what. We, you know, Matthew, bats one of our writers says it carries a six week recovery time line. He might end up on injured reserve this is going to speak into our waiver show today. Yep. A big time Paul Richardson's going to have surgery on a shoulder and knee. He's going to be out for the rest of the season the Redskins as a team. We're just destroyed this last week. You lost two starters from the offensive line. You lost another lineman in and out during that game. Four of the starters are now gone, or you know, this is a huge worry. And then you lose you arguably your number one wider oh wide receiver. I don't know if there is a a clear cut number one there. But I mean, it's bad vibes for the injury bugging in wash. The same exact thing that happened last year. They lost their entire line. This is them in what Los Angeles need to work on their conditioning. Adam Schefter said Sonny Michelle is likely to return on Sunday against the tight. Here's the thing. I want to talk about rob gronkowski because rob gronkowski missed the last week. There's a chance he's back, but they have a bye following this week. And so it is to me the likelihood is that gronkowski's gonna sit another week. Do you guys agree with Denison, do unfortunately, it's been a bad year for it has has been extremely disappointing. Yeah. And look in so we're we're redraft show. But let's just real quick take a dynasty pause gronkowski. I mean, there was already all these talks of he's going to retire. He's banged up. The the patriots whispers from the bushes. At least we're going to trade him away it during this off season of said, no if you train me I will retire. So then teams didn't wanna trade for him. You have the is Brady coming back is Bella Chet coming back. What is the actual dynasty value of lashed you as of last year? Gronk was the number one clear cut number one dynasty tied in. Yeah. I mean, I is he is he even in the top three for you and dynasty terms anymore. I yeah. I said this coming into this season. Gronk in dynasty is. It was a must trade his value is high and the the time line left looks so short, and you could get a lot for now. Now, it's a little worrisome of how much you can get. But no. What are you? Are you gonna bail out though? Would you take what you could get for grown right now? If you if I could get a decent offer. Yeah. You won't get a decent dynasty offer for gronk right now. If you here's here's how from team that's trying to win. Yes. If he's even help right now. I mean by the time they had deadline goes by you're going to be what he'll miss this week. You have the by week. You probably won't be able to get. I think you're stuck with him. And he and I don't think that's a big deal. If I had to project a future for him, and I've got him in my dynasty league. I just made an acquisition of Josh, Gordon. I think you get one more year. I think you're going. That's my my intensification is you're going to have another year. Brady, you're gonna have another year gronk, and I think they actually ended up signing Josh Gordon to a one year deal. That's my that's what I believe. So. We'll see we we don't know. But I think you're going to get one more year of that core together. That's what I believe as of right now now whether or not you get enough gronk he has to stay healthy as to get healthy. But you need to make plans to live without him this week because I don't think he's going to play agreed. Put me in coach. Whole bunch of teams returning from the bye week. The Bengals cardinals colts eagles giants. And Jags your friendly reminder that those are. Those are some of the more ignored players on waiver day because they don't have a high point total from the week before people have let them go and they forget about them and everybody's reacting to who perform this past weekend. So don't ignore those six teams heading into week ten the Vikings Texans. Broncos and ravens they're all on by. And those are some teams and players that you might see hit the waiver wire following when it goes through tomorrow, and those could be players that you could sneak back onto your Thursday. All right. So let's go ahead and get into the wide receivers. I think we are all in agreement that we have the same favorite. Yes. And that is Marquez Valdez scaling. Yeah. He he should be the clear favourite across all positions this week. I you know, he is a bona fide wide receiver to or better the rest of season with the injury to run them. Oh, alison. Even winds run Runamuck was out there. We've. Scene. Marquez now, the scant Ling have famously production. But now he's basically the number two wide receiver for Aaron Rodgers. I mean that is a super valuable since two thousand eleven that's basically been the wide receiver fifteen and he's looked great. So it's it's time to I I would spend up on Val, the scheduling, I I usually don't spend more than ten dollars on fab. But I would I would burn my waiver priority on him. I would I would spend twenty dollars. If you're making a run at a guy like that got one hundred yards or touchstone in each of the past four games, he's been great for fantasy purposes. And now, he's the guy. It's the same reason back a few weeks ago wins Rana was actually on the waiver wire because he had been a little bit banged up. It was you gotta get Toronto. You gotta get that wide receiver to from Green Bay. But now, it's a new guy. So pick them up and win this season started we knew it'd be a sifting process of sorts to figure out the running. Back and the White House. Yes, -sition there. But you gotta take advantage of it. When you can now Jason how does your philosophy change with the ten dollars a fab per wide receiver when you're trying to acquire somebody for the stretch run. I mean, do you adjust that when you think you have the opportunity to go grab a guy that you can start? Yeah. I mean, I I'm willing to spend up now is the time of year where when we tell you, here's the percentage, I would spend or here's what it is. You you have to do the work because the number were giving is nonsense because you've got to look at how much budget is left for your ten percent. I'm going to bet your league. You know, look at your opponents who needs a wide receiver how much fab do they have spent a dollar more than they can or dollar less? Are you set for the playoff run? Make sure you don't spend all of it saves some of your save five dollars a fab for that playoff run. So that you can grab the tight end away from an opponent for dollar when they're out of fab stuff like that. You've got to just use your your your brain, use your brain, solid advice. All right. Well, FE's football DM if Allison's out do you have any interest in a flyer on equity Saint Brown? No lot of four wide sets. You don't think he's gonna earn more significant role? I mean, he he might. I mean, he he played a lot of snaps, but you we've seen that Rogers finds the guy that he likes Russ. And then he goes to that player Rogers seemed frustrated with e q a couple of times this last week. I I'm not really in love with Brown. Okay. Let's go ahead and move on here. Do you have any other favorites that are jumping out NBS is the clear top favorite for me guys that I'm also, you know, decently interested in. Are you guys like KiKi coming off the injury and the bye week? The addition of Mary's Thomas, I think that he I don't even think he's back. Really? Yeah. I mean, he he said he's not coming back until he's one hundred percent. I don't know his practice report. Maybe he's practicing in full, and I've missed it. But yeah, I mean, I if he doesn't come back this week coming off a bye, then I worry that it's going to be even longer. So I I am not super excited about. Okay. You actually he's going on by he's oh even worse. Yeah. Apologize because he had missed a couple of weeks. Yeah. You know trae wants Smith is still a guy that I'm interested in. Okay. Being the that deep receiving option for drew Brees is usually valuable. So I'm pretty I'm pretty happy with that. All right. Some other interesting names. I wanna know what you think about the Williams guys. It seems like we talk about him every week. It's a bit of a guessing game. Neither of them had a significant amount of targets three for tyrel three for Mike Williams. Both for the chargers, obviously, just three targets. But both score one of well, maybe one had a ghost touchdown one of them had a legitimate still bitter against my point. Oh, no. No, no. Yes. Very much referees. What are you watching? It's ridiculous. But I would prefer tyrel I'm gonna take the gazelle personally of Mike Williams Williams's he's a fine flex play. When you're out of options. What about John Ross? Are you guys making a move to pick him up in hopes that he can step up with the absence of AJ green the New Orleans? Saints matchup with out by weeks this week, if you're desperate, Mike, you know, the break the glass players that you've brought. Before. Sure, John Ross at home against New Orleans is a break the glass white out. He he made plays in preseason. I think that he you know, when you lose AJ green that is a big red zone opportunity. A big red zone target. Not that he's a prototypical red zone guy. But eight touchdown or two from Andy Dalton should be expected in this game. I think you can break the glass with him and CJ us on it's a deep threat to. I mean, how often how many times per game does AJ green get a sideline bomb and that will be John Ross now. So yeah, the problem is John Ross is. No, no. He's known agent. Green. Sure. All right. Other names that you could be interested in trae Kwan Smith twenty eight percent owned. Yeah. Jason and mentioned him. I do I'm still very interested in him. Even though that the volume has not been there reports that Dez Bryant is being worked out by the saints today. Yeah. That that would be a great ad for them. They're at the point now where outside of trae Kwan, and Michael Thomas, they don't really have like last in years past you had that goal line. Jimmy Graham, line him up outside opportunity that seems like the one crucial role that you could almost use deaths for they're not getting nothing out of their number three guy. Cam Meredith has been a disappointment to them. So I it makes sense that they would look at that. I think does go to the lines personally. Go bay big slot man up in Detroit, the lions are they're on the way down. But yes, yes, I get it. The lines are going to spend money. They just shipped out golden Tate in part to save. Yeah. How about MAURICE Harris? Are you guys interested in Reese Harris because I it s I I am as well. I mean, this was a that is a washing that is the wide receiver. Redskins. He really really good. He's he has looked good this year on very very low volume, of course. But this this week you knew that someone was going to have a at least someone should have a good game for Alex Smith, and that was Harris ten for one twenty four head at twelve targets guest to play Tampa Bay. He's running it primarily as a slot guy. For them crowd has been banged up. Paul Richardson's out for the year. Josh toxin is good for his three super ridiculous catches of the of the week, but can Harris step into the role and be the actual number one for this team. I think it's plausible. Would you rather start MAURICE Harris at Tampa Bay, you know, ROY Moore John Ross because that's it all depends. How Jamison Crowder comes back for this game or not agree of Crowder's out? I'm very I'm contra playing Harris yet tin. Targets. I'm sorry. Twelve targets ten receptions. If Crowder comes back and bounces hairs from the slot. I would start Ross. Okay. Yeah. I think I leaned that way. But if if Crowder is out Harris's extremely interesting this week. So you'd put your waiver claim on which one not knowing because I would lean towards I would I would prioritize Ross personally. But just because I know that green is gonna miss a couple of games. I'm not sure what's going on with Crowder. Are you interested in chasing points with Curtis Samuel? No, no. Are you interested in Anthony Miller five forty nine on six targets rookie wide receiver for the Chicago Bears? I am interested in Anthony Miller. He's looked good. And we I haven't heard any update on Alan Robinson. But it does not seem like he's you know, just he was almost out. There seems like he was not not close to being there last week. So if if a rob is out against Detroit this week. I like Anthony Miller quite a bit. All right. Are you interested in Cordeiro Patterson after the rushing only is out? Yeah. But by all accounts. It sounds like Sony is going to be back. Okay. All right. All right, cool. Let's jump into running backs before you do that. I wanna thank twenty three.

Free count. Tell them that you found them from the fantasy football podcast. All right running backs guys who are some of your favorites from the main waiver wire pickups, and these are names like Duke Johnson. Right. The big week nine for seventy eight in two touchdowns through the air. Mike Davis with Chris Carson banged up by Davis went out caught seven passes had fifteen carries big week for him. Elisa. Mcguire surprising snap count fifty five percents. That. Seven thirty on the ground, but three thirty seven through the air maybe filling in for below Powell there. And then there are other names. Shannon Rashard Doug Martin, Royce Freeman could be back soon who's your favorite my up where are you spending your fab where you blown your waiver priority? Unlike some weeks this week, I don't feel like there's a guy that is a just a, oh, my gosh, you have to have this guy agrees. And which means I'm looking at this week. I'm not looking rest of season. I'm saying who do I need to pick up to play on my by. And to me. It's Duke Johnson. I love the matchup against Atlanta for pass catching running backs. A said this last week Duke Johnson is a guy that I'm happy to play this week. I mean, his not just a break the glass in you can play them off the waivers. Yes. He's a good player this guy where when when he's on your austral ready if he's not available. If you've already picked him up, he's probably someone you should consider putting in. That that flexes week. Yeah. And then would you just real quick question since you liked the mansion for do Johnson? I believe the Packers face Miami this week. If you're blown away for spot, are you prioritizing Marquis, Valda scheduling or do Johnson. Yeah. I I mean, obviously, it's a little Rosser dependent because you're talking about two different position. So I would prioritize if you need a running back, then you gotta do you. Gotta do what you need. Neither if you'd want to either. Want to your team? I would much rather have Marquis. I agree. I agree. And then the other running backs allies. Maguire is very interesting. He's like I said in the rising star segment. I don't think that he is going to just win you weeks. But I think he will be a reliable source, especially in half full point p PR of getting you that eight to ten point a week baseline. And then Mike Davis is extremely interesting. But that all depends on the health of Chris Carson who missed basically the second half of this week, peach peach cobbler, peach cobbler, coachspeak care. About Chris Carson, he sore? He's not gonna do much at practice this week. So this is a u pick them up. And you're not sure that you're going to be able to plan. If you have Chris Carson, I would prioritize picking up Mike Davis. I mean, we're in we're in handcuffs season. So you should be protecting. Here's a pretty interesting dynamic there with my Davis do Johnston. I do Johnson's forty eight percent own. So he might not even be available in your league might Davis much much less own. But but my gave represents this volume, right, right? Whereas Duke represents the passing game and maybe some opportunity. Dave Davis was seven for forty five on eight targets. If Chris Carson is actually out Davis in Davis. Davis will still get targets an carries on ground. So it'll be twenty twenty plus touches. Yes. Yeah. I if if Carson's out, and we're just going ahead head then Mike Davis is going to be higher in the rankings for me, Duke. All right. You've had time to think about this. Andy. How? Yes. What is your temperature? Check on Josh Adams. Are you still wanting to pick him up and believing that he is going to be a successful fantasy option in that committee? That's the running back. Philadelphia. Eagles rookie. Yes on Josh Adams is the best of that group. Now, whether that means. You know, that's going to be. I don't know if it started this week. But I think he's going to win out in that role. I think he's going to be the guy that has the most opportunity, you know, Doug Peterson came out and talked about the fact that he's going to be little the legare blunt of that offense. He's got more size. It's got more juice been Clement than Smallwood Smallwood za, Jack Clement has a role. But yeah, I think John Adams is the one I'd want to own and I think he's a great opportunity to pick them up. Right now because coming off the bye, okay. I see I worry about upside there for any of them whether or small wood Corey Clement or or Josh Adams, just even when Jay was there. I had always happy because it's like he's just he is one third. They're pretty happy with blunt last year. And the thing is is. I'd rather debate the merits of the of those guys becoming something on good offenses than I would you know, the Derrick Henry Dion Lewis situation. Like I want to buy into the Aaron Joneses. And Josh Adams and find my gold there. And maybe it won't be maybe it'll be too much of a committee. But if I'm able to grab three. Yeah. I mean, you'd still take Dan Lewis over Josh Adams. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I would do that. Okay. Yeah. Any other favorites? This week jam Rashard could still be out there. Yes. I would pick him up. Doug martin. This is a good. He's he's gonna get these gonna get his he's going get goal line work. He plays the chargers, which probably not the best matchup for Doug Martin. However the following week. He will get to play Arizona and Doug Martin will be a very very serviceable running back in that matchup. Are maybe maybe we'll have you know, we have to we have to wait one more week and see because the cardinals changed to the four three and shut down. So if that's did actually change how they were losing to the running back which on one week. It looked like it did. But it was it was the nice. This is the week now that we're by obviously you still have by weeks, but we're past the week nine by Pokka lips. Now is the time where I would start looking at handcuffs as well at running neck. So if you you know, if you've got Kareem hunt. Sure you pick up Spencer ware. If you've got girly get Malcolm Brown, though those situations. There's there's not a lot where you know, the guy to get. But now's the time. Would you pick up or I should say? Are you interested in THEO Riddick? He was on the field right back into his usual role eight targets it only came through with seven for thirty six. But if you're in a PR that you're happy with that. Golden Tate is gone. I mean THEO Riddick saw he was lining up in the slot. Few times. He's out there running routes. Are you interested in him? Let's I'll speak only specifically for peop-. Yeah. Only for P PR leaves. And I would be mildly interested also another handcuffed that I we haven't really talked about. But I think he's one of the most valuable handcuffs out there. If you have Christian McCaffrey, you need to own C, J Anderson because should an injury happen, nor Turner. Is a workhorse guy. C J Anderson is more talented than Spencer ware or chase Edmunds or Maori around. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. I don't think he's more talented than any of those. That's why I was. So I think he early not more talented house yard rusher. Last season. You don't get to like take his great years and give them to them for the rest of it was it was that was last year. It was it was very into this season. And the thing is he's not not on the field. Because of his talent north Turner. This is what I was saying before the season Christian McCaffrey was going to be used as a workhorse back because that's all Norv Turner's ever done for twenty six years should an injury befall, Christian McCaffrey. C J Anderson will be a fantasy football star. I think he'd be very valuable and also Dover get about geo Bernard. He's back at practice. If Joe mix and MRs time that Uber nerd is. Extremely valuable. Oh, no. This this terrible news, Mark. Wow. We haven't heard from Mark Wallenburg in a long time. I haven't done nothing in. I've been out there. Trying to be like, hey, coach put me in. He's like, no, you're not good. And I'm like that hurts my feelings. So how do you mother the for me? Yo my feelings. Yo I dunno. It's not me. That's martin. Smarter. It's been a while. Tight ends. If you're facing the gronk situation. Maybe you're facing the Jordan Reed situation, which I'm advising people at this point. They'll move on. I mean, I'd rather I'd rather have Jack Doyle that was the question. I got one hundred percent then Jordan Reed. And look this is the time to go grab somebody if you're in a tough situation, and and you can't chase. Jeff Hier men's points there on by in Denver. So CJ Zomba Jack Doyle, Nick Vernet, Chris Herndon earned. It's been very interesting four consecutive weeks of increased utilization. He's always looked at around the goal line when it warned for sixty two this past week, which was nice. Yeah. When they get around the goal on Herndon has been looked too. But the first two guys you mentioned are the clear cut winners to me. If you're asking who are my favorites CJ Yuzawa against do Orleans without AJ green, his utilization should go up. But Jack Doyle, I would have even ahead of him. Off the bye week. He'll be available in a lot of leagues looks like he's only thirty eight percent owned and ESPN. So Jack Doyle's going to be out there. I love you know, getting pieces of a great quarterback. And you know in Andrew luck has been awesome this year. Yeah. It's if you're facing the tight end problem, this is kind of lucky week to have that happen with two really great options. Are you are we buying into Nick Vernet had eight targets? He ran more than double the routes of red dead Dixon. Jason I stand on principle. Not be picky us. He's playing against the Rams. So we've seen the way that they we call it the quote funnel defense where things can just roll through the tight end. Oh, man. Oh, man. Strength been Watson came through with the big game against the Rams. Are we buying into Vanette? I I'm okay with it. Okay. Because we we saw obviously a wheel dismally do. Do some work earlier in the season. And when you look at the target counts at the White House are getting Doug Baldwin. It's like four targets Tyler Lockett was like four targets Nathan ahead at eight targets. So I think he's interesting was a red dead's targets with. Okay. So this week you can play Nick net against the Rams Chris Herndon against buffalo or Ben watts and against the bangel, which of those three how would you priority? I would genuinely order them been Watson, Chris Herndon, Nick Bennett. I actually would as well. I'm gonna go with the better the best offense. Then Watson looked nice Chris Herndon on the upward trajectory. And then Nick, I'm just I'm I would go Watson is my number one of those three I'm concerned for Herndon. Because the Buffalo's defense is not terrible and Sam darnold has been a turnover machine. But I the nine this game is going to be the nicest special that the the nice thing about Hernan his they will because of buffalo and more. So because of Buffalo's offense there will be short fields. So I think that's really valuable for a guy like darnold for him to get touchdowns. He he needs a shorter field right now. At this point his rookie career and Hearns looked at near the goal line. So I I think they'll have a couple more red zone opportunities than they than they had last week for sure Hernan has been eight or more fantasy points for four straight weeks. He's interesting. Yes. Interesting. But in just if you're looking for a long term value he's playing Buffalo's week, and then he's on by right? So you is if you're saying I'll crap I need a guy for a few weeks. I would ties the other guys, let's us alma Doyle been Watson. All ahead of him. Hopefully, don't need Herndon. What defenses? Are you looking to jets? All the jets and in even buffalo they play each other. Yeah. This is going to there's going to be defensive scoring. But if they are not available. The jets have forced Twenty-one sex and fifteen turnovers on the season, which is great. Yes. And they go up against a team that says you don't have to force us. We'll we'll do it our surprise. Then the chargers get to play the raiders that's going to be a very solid play. The eagles coming off the bye week. Maybe you can snatch them up and playing against Dallas. And then Green Bay versus Miami him. I'm okay with that as well. All right. Let's get to the quarterbacks. Full stream ahead. All right. Who's your streamer this week, Mike, I'm going with Baker? If he's available and we've got him down as a thirty eight percent owned guy. He gets to play Atlanta. I know that the the Atlanta defense Chi. Kyw they showed up so to speak against Washington. Alex Smith did have over three hundred yards. He just didn't come through with that second. Touchdown. That would have put him over the top to be a great quarterback play. So I I like Baker against the falcons Jason I'm going with the guy that I'm terrified of yours. Oh, I like alumni overtly oppose it. Oh, we'll see by by all means try. I'm going with the guy that was benched two weeks ago. And he's got a snake at a snake man Blake the snake lake is overtly rooted against by everyone every single including those fee. That's really true. So you're out you're out there going Jason, what are you doing? This guy was Benjamin game put up two fantasy points two weeks ago. How in the world can you stream Blake the snake? Here's how it's combination of a couple of click the button couple of great. You put him in your lineup and you click save he's on pace for five hundred and twenty two rushing your. Yards. His he and that's with being Benjamin, basically not playing two weeks ago. He's coming off the bye, I think the rushing baseline helps him enough. He's actually had several games this year where he's been very good for fantasy. Look, he's he's never been a great real world quarterback. But in fantasy he's always been fine. He's playing is not always been fine. Oh, yes. He has since his since I'm not a streamer season season rankings. He's averaged the quarterback eight over the last three years with last year being his worst year as quarterback threats of fish. I'm going to overtly oppose it this week eight turnovers over the last four weeks. What do you think retouched downs over the last four? Also, what do you think points four points ten point Andy, what do you think of Derek Carr? Good or bad that raiders offense. Good or bad that k- how how about two hundred and forty four yards three touchdowns. That's what their card did against the Indianapolis defense. I'll I understand. It's not a question of whether he could do it. It's a question of whether it's a why question why? Dream a guy who's struggling this immensely. Eight turnovers. Two three touchdowns over a four weeks man as a great time for not. That's a great question. The reason I chose because we we have to do then fancy go why because we're going to get things wrong. But what is the reason for the decision? I'm going with Blake the snake specifically over Andy Dalton because not because he safer, but because he has the ability. I think to have that thirty point game it, you know, if Andy if I if Andrew luck is scoring and they've got to use him. And he's running the ball. We just see big fantasy games from time to time out of Blake Bortles. And I will bet you Andy Dalton versus Bortles appeal. Waterbed like, we're we're not we're not yes-men on this show. We don't always agree with each other. I don't I think the upside of Andy Dalton's higher at home this games on the road. Derek Carr was at home against Indianapolis. I like, I also think there's a massive massive difference between the raiders defense and the Jaguars Stevens. So the logic of Andrew luck. Putting up a bunch of points against them doesn't make sense to me Jags now things make sense to me. Also, we're talking about streamers here. Andy Dalton is not available to St.. He is. He is. He is he'll be dry. He was almost my streamer this week. He's available in forty percent less than forty percent of leaks. Okay. Me. That's not a streaming candidate. All right. All right. So you're you're firmly in the let's go at the guy eight turnovers three touchdowns last four weeks. Yeah. Let's go against the the the defense that just allows top quarterback performances. If unless your name is Nathan or not Nathan Peterman of Derek Anderson. That's over emphasizing the match up to me. But guys this all about man. It hasn't worked out for Blake for four straight weeks. Why why jumping that fire? All right. I'm with it though. I'm with it. Okay. I'm my streamer. This week is actually Marcus mariota. He had thirty fancy points last night, ten rushing attempts. He faces New England at home. The offense looked like it had a little bit of life to it and New England is actually twenty-seventh against opposing quarterbacks in terms of fantasy points against so there's a lot of upside for Mario. There's also a pretty high floor with New England giving up that many points to opposing quarterbacks, and ultimately, I wouldn't be going there if they were on the road despite those numbers up in New England, but at home Mario after the win put up twenty eight points last night. I'm gonna go with Mario to as a streaming option. And the nice thing about Mario is he probably available in your leak flying. Yeah. You know, Kirk cousins to Shawn Watson, if you're an owner of those two guys on by you can look at Mario Baker Blake the snake? There are some other guys out there. But those are kinda the ones we picked out for this week. Yes. Before we close out the show. I wanna give a shout out to Tim on Twitter. He sent me. The the dictionary dot com word of the day.

BGN Radio #42: Taking Stock of Free Agency

"You're listening to BT and radio. Why would you listen to any other eagles test with John Stolnis in randomly gal? Hello, bleeding, green nation and welcome back to BGN radio. This is episode number forty two. I'm John Stolnis from bleeding green nation dot com. You can follow me on Twitter at John Stolnis. You know, we are still in the middle of the free agency period and things of died down. We're now into the second wave of regency. But that doesn't mean there aren't a lot of things to talk about the eagles had another busy week since we spoke last. However, they are still woefully short at one particular position. We'll get into that will take a look at some of the draft prospects that are coming into Philadelphia for a visit with team officials Vegas's out with some of their early odds for Super Bowl Super Bowl contenders. And the eagles make an interesting proposal having to do with the Cowboys and thanksgiving, so we're gonna get into all of that here over the next hour or so and joining me to do that as he does every week. Is the man who runs bleeding green nation dot com may he forever reign Brandon Lee gallon. You can follow him on Twitter at Brandon gallon Biel g how you doing buddy. John terrible news for you. I know now see that's that is no way to start off a podcast. I have like I mean, how would you like walked tell me the terrible news. Tell me the terrible news. I'm going to be playing running back for the goes this year. I mean, someone they called me up, and it's not going to be pretty I'm six foot nine that's just way too tall running back. Even if that didn't matter I'm just not very fast at all. So it's it's not going to be good for the eagles this year. Too tall to be running back to tall to be a defensive end really tall to play football b l g I mean there on the field. You can be six foot nine and be successful thing. I could be like a red zone tight end specialists kind of deal. Okay. Okay. Walk it all, but you know, I I think I could get a jump ball at some point. That's probably about it. Well, we are going to get into the running back situation here and just minutes because. They might be calling you at some point. If they don't get this position addressed here either through trade or free agency or with the draft coming up here. We'll get into all that coming up because that is a big topic of concern among eagles fans, but we're going to start off episode forty two year with some of the moves the eagles did make this week. And we'll take them in chronological order starting with the most recent. And that of course is the eagles announcing that they are bringing back Vinnie carry to a one year deal worth two and a quarter million dollars. It could go up to three and a half million dollars with incentives. The thirty year old was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year after spending the first six years of his career with the hometown eagles grew up in eagles fan as you all well know was part of the Super Bowl championship team at twenty two sex in six seasons with the eagles. And last year for Tampa B L G kind of down year for him started seven games had just two and a half sacks fifteen solo tackles, but was dealing with an injury for much of the season. I don't know. I know this has been talked about us once free agency started that. It was likely that Tampa would release Vinny curry and that if that happened the eagles would swoop in and swoop in they did. So what grade do you give the Vinny curry signing? What do you think about it? So I guess I'm going to like a B follow be makes about sense for him. Maybe even a little low, maybe be plus I think it's a solid move. They needed more depth at defensive end after trading Michael Bennett and with the Chris long situation up in the air. And really that's kinda maybe it's funny. Maybe not everyone. But for me, at least that's kind of what I think about the most when I think about this resigning. I'm not even thinking about Vinnie so much. I'm thinking about okay? What happens now with Chris Law as we've talked about here has been very specific about how he's going to be watching the defensive end room, and how crowded a gets to make his decision on if he wants to come back or not. And I've kinda felt like that. You'll weren't gonna resign. Vinny curry not because they wouldn't be interested in him as much as just like they were kind of leaving that spot open. For Chris long. That was my thinking. Now, I don't think signing even carry definitely means Chris long won't be back. But you know, my thinking before is that spot was being saved for him. And now, it's not so much. So I don't know a hundred this don't know for sure where that stands I would love to have Chris back. But while we kinda just wait on that one. 'cause they're still, you know, they pushed one of the things in his contract back think till after the draft allows the eagles to to go forward to not have to make that commitment right now. So we'll see how the Chris long thinks shakes out in short. But for now I like with eagles kinda have shaping up here defensive end. I mean, you have Brannon Graham Derek Burnett as you're likely starters in two thousand nineteen those were your stars for the most part in two thousand eighteen prior to darker Burnett getting hurt Vinny curry imagine, you know, is going to have a significant role at third or fourth defensive in off the bench. And I think that's good. I think Vinny curry had an underrated season in two thousand seventeen if you look back at it. It was his best overall career by in terms of you know, how? Football focus graded him out in you know, take that for what it's worth. But you know, you look at him in their rankings ranked tenth overall in run stop percentage in that kind of masses up with the test to member Vinny. Curry can always had that like a bad rap as a head run defender. Yeah. Like really changed in two thousand seventeen. I remember there's a player to a game where he would dislike someone try to run to the edge running back try to run out to the ED's in many this. They're like stop them in their tracks. I almost feel like he became a better run defender than a pass rusher. At that point which is weird because it used to be the opposite for him earlier on his career, but even in two thousand seventeen he still ranked thirty fifth out of a hundred nine teen edge rushers in pressure rate. So, you know, you look at those numbers in two thousand seventeen in there, really good. And he's coming back to this system. He's no longer playing in Tampa Bay defense that allowed the most points in the league last year, and he's also not going to be dealing with the injury. Hopefully now is a little bit older. I don't know if he's giving you the time of production. Xactly that you got from him in two thousand seventeen by think he's going to be closer to that than he was when he was struggling with the buccaneers last year. Look, you're only paying two point five million for this guy. If you look at the other contracts or addresses out there guys who got more than him like Marcus golden, no signed for one year three point seven five million with the giants. You know, you look at shack bear one year four million with the buccaneers Bruce Irvin. Who's thirty one a little bit older than Vinnie signed one year four million dollars with the with the Panthers. So like that's pretty good value. The reports are that buzney turned down offers for more money with other teams come back to Philly. And I think that's true. I mean, he's obviously needles fan. We already know that story by now. And he just genuinely sounded like he's thrilled to be back. I was listening to him today on the conference call and he just said like these guys are his brothers his teammates. Like, they're not just sense about football for him. Like, these are these are his best friends. So he's back. I think it makes sense for the eagles. You know? It's not like a home run move by any means by it's. Real solid move. I agree with that. And I think Vinny curry we heard was dealing with a high ankle sprain for much of last year. And that was one of the reasons why maybe he wasn't as productive. He was also playing in a different scheme, and maybe a scheme that didn't utilize him and to the best of his abilities. And now he comes back to Philadelphia in a scheme where we know especially in two thousand seventeen like you mentioned that he flourished, and we talk about Vinnie carry being being older. Thirty years old is is not ancient. I mean, he's younger than Michael Bennett who the team traded away Bennett was a far more productive player than Vinny. Curry was last year, obviously. And but I mean, I don't know that Bennett is necessarily going to have the same kind of season in two thousand nineteen given his age when you're talking about Chris long, Chris long is substantially older by at least a couple of years over Vinny curry, and I think that is you're right. That is one of the more interesting aspects of this signing is what it means for Chris long's career, and we know that he's been contemplating retirement and one of the things that has been. A major consideration for him as to whether or not to come back to Philadelphia is playing time how many snaps is he gonna get what percentage of snaps is going to be there for him with Brandon Graham coming back in with Derek Barnett, hopefully, healthy and ready to rock and roll and with any curry there, and you know, you're going to hopefully, get something out of maybe get some more playing time for Josh sweat this year because you spent a fourth-round or on him last season. Are we getting to a point here where the eagles? I know there's been a lot of Chris criticism. They're getting you know, they're old on the defensive line. But if you don't bring back Chris long, and you don't bring back Michael Bennett. You're actually seems to me getting younger along defensive line. So, you know, I'm not I'm not sure that I see exactly where Chris long fits on this defensive line right now. Because I don't think he's going to get the percentage of snaps. It is going to make him happy Bilgee. I hate that. That's a bummer because I think Chris long still really good player. And it almost makes me wonder if they would trade him at that point. Because I think he's still wants to play. Dist listening him in his interviews and really looking at his body of work last year. I don't think this is a guy that needs to retire. I think he's still wants to play. And maybe he does retire because he feels like, okay, I'm not gonna go through the whole thing of the making them trade me into all of that. And he's gonna retire. Maybe that's the case. But maybe he's gonna try to force the issue if he can if it makes sense if the can of get something back in return for him. And so I wonder if that's almost on the table now whether that you'll trade him or whether he retires they would save five point three million cap space. So that's kind of upside to not having Chris long Dak I'd rather have him back than the space to saying. That's the bonus you get in another thing, by the way to keep in mind. Vinny curry in why it's a big deal significant factor in signing him that he doesn't count towards their against their compact. I should say so since the the bucket cut him such just another another factor to the move kinda makes an extra bonus. But yeah, I don't know it's gonna happen here with. Was Chris long? I think bottom line, though, is with whatever happens out like still feel pretty good about this defensive line room. Like, don't you like you have yet wonder best in the NFL one of the best in the NFL? And I think it has a chance to be the best in the NFL because one of the other things we haven't talked about g is what if they spend their first round pick on an edge rusher. What if they spend one of their second round on an edge rusher that leaves even less playing time for Chris long? But probably makes it a stronger defensive unit. That's the other thing too. And that's probably why again, they push that deadline back after the Chaffetz. So they song to have what the deal is there. So we'll see how that goes. But yeah, I mean, even the is they have right now, let's say they don't even at anyone. And let's say Chris long isn't back like that. That would be the worst case scenario. So you have Brandon Graham endured Burnett. I'm really cited have BT back, man. Like, he's gonna be healthy this year. He was clearly not healthy last year off season surgery in may which is late for off-season surgery on his ankle. He didn't come into the season. He's ready to get after this year. Kinda get back to the level. He was before he was last year. Derek is going to be in his third year. He still only twenty two I think he's pretty young man. I know Benjamin his the biggest fan, but I think we saw some growth at a Derek Burnett last year before he got hurt. I think him being another year older in having more experience as we'll see him potentially take that step forward. Vinny. Curry is you know, what you're getting out of him probably in the scheme. He's going to be a solid player for this team. Josh wet. I think bringing back many curry is probably not a good move for him. Not only because he's probably going to be losing his jersey number seventy five. I just don't think he kinda showed enough in the I kind of go back to the fact that they were so thin offensive ended wins last year. Like Bennett was hurt. Guys were banged up. They're only down to three or so defensive ends and jobs loves to rotate is guys. Ideally, he has like four defensive in playing significant snaps, but even then they still didn't really trust Josh wet. And then he got hurt which is another issue with him. But you look at a guy like DeJean hall who they acquired late in the season. Any like barely played the only play like nano twenty five thirty snaps or so, but like he showed me a little bit of juice in those snaps the end small sample size. Not even a lactate the roster but using a former third round pick. I think that can do that sixteen. So I'm interested to see him the new the coaching staff praising Joe Oestmann this year in again, maybe that's nothing. Maybe nothing more than a practice squad player. But the point is like they have some guys that even beyond the starters. Like, there's still some intrigue with some of these guys, and I feel like shifting your attention a little bit and looking at not just the ends. But the way they can. Move there guys around Vinny. You can put him on the interior on third down in have him rush from there. And as point you know, distinct that makes the pass rush better to have a guy like that in any brand Balik Jackson, and you're upgrading your pass rushers in total. So, you know, even song doesn't come back. I would love to have him back. But even if he doesn't and even if you don't yet atop pass rusher in the draft, which they bury much Ken possibly. I just still think they have a really good unit here to work with y'all. I agree. I agree. I think it's gonna be a very good unit. That's one of the reasons that Jackson wanted to come to Philadelphia wanted to be a part of a a great defensive line because you know, he enough let your Cox in the middle is just gonna make those ends even better. So yeah, no doubt about it. I think eagles have top five defensive line heading into next season on paper. Anyway, one of the other moves the eagles made this week was to sign safety Andrews day ho and one of the things I've noticed with all of the signings this week B L G, and we'll get to that with the third signing in just a second is that they really seem to be targeting guys who had good two thousand. Seventeen and dropped off in two thousand eighteen because of injury and Syndey ho was certainly one of those guys so one year deal for the thirty two year old primarily run stopping safety at this point in his career. He's going to serve as the team's number three behind Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod Beal g the most important thing. He does he gives them a real depth piece. I mean, you're not going to have to deal with with Corey Graham anymore to not have to have him on the field. No matter what no matter what Syndey Hogue gives you as far as I know, he's not the strongest guy in pass coverage. But gotta be better than Corey Graham. Right. I mean anything's better than Corey Graham. Yes, I think he'll know where to be informed fifteen hopefully with the game on the line time. I would I would hope at the very least sorry to bring that up for everyone. But yeah. With the signing just the medically like this is what how Roseman does he fill the holes on the team before the draft comes up the eagles needed some kind of third safety, and they can still add one in the draft. If they want to. You don't wanna go into draft like having to get that guy. And if you don't get him then oh, well, you're locked late. So I think that's what you do Sunday. And I've just felt like the safety market had two guys on it. Like, so many safeties got onto the market this season some unexpectedly to where it just felt like too many veterans out there for the not to bring in a third guy at some point. And the got that guy in Sunday. How I don't know even if he's fully guaranteed to make the team again, they could draft a rookie. Maybe someone beats tensely the contract is reportedly for one point three million. I don't I'm not sure how much of that is guaranteed. If any will see I think solid signing again, it's you have to consider that. We don't know a hundred percent Friday McLeod will be ready for the start of the season. Like, I think there would be because he suffered a C L slash MC. L back in September still is only week three. So I think he is a good chance to be ready for week one. But maybe he misses a game to the desiccation. You can kinda put Sunday in their in have him. Hold down the fort for a little bit until. Musab tensely ready to get back. So I think that's the idea. I think the fact that they've had safety injuries past couple years. You know, they're trying to stress adding more depth at that position. And I think Cindy how gives them the flexibility they want to play they want to be able to do in terms of playing these sub packages such as the big nickel or their dime package. So it makes sense in that vein. And again, it doesn't really rule out them drafting a safety as high as the first round if they went into on sudden, four quality safety. So I just think, you know, it makes sense counts against their compact formula for now. But I don't think it's a huge deal. I think they can sensually still get four complex depending on who else signs elsewhere or again, if like Sunday ho struggles, or whatever they can cut him in he wouldn't count against the formula that point anymore. So we'll see how he does this off season. He just needs proving stay healthy. If does healthy does make this team. Like he is gonna knock the crap at a someone. He got crab knocked him by blood and don't think about that. But I mean, that's not him even sucking. That's a large, you know, that's in large part delegate plant being like two hundred fifty pound running back who's a beast. Right. Yeah. I think Sunday was gonna like seriously just not it might be eagles player. So that might be frustrating, by the way, just literate someone like I dunno Nigel, Adam he's he's gonna not the crap at someone this year. I don't know if it'll be an eagles player of the be an offensive player, but someone is gonna get hit art. Yeah. He played in just five games last year suffered a season ending groin injury against the eagles. But was graded forty fifth out of one hundred and one safeties last year by PF, but in two thousand seventeen was twentieth. Overall, according to PF grades. So again, a massive upgrade over Corey Graham, no matter how you shake it down. And then the last signing the eagles made this week was they re signed Ronald Darby to a one year eight and a half million dollar deal. He went out on the open market. Beal GD eagles lead. Them test free agency, he visited Kansas City. I usually think that when a player goes to visit another city, there's a really good chance. They're gonna sign there. But ultimately, he decided to come back to Philadelphia. Are you surprised that the eagles were able to get him back on a one year deal? Gee, I I'm not shocked. You know, I think we've been talking about we've been hearing some buzz that the really wanted him back around even said that in his interview with Ian, Rappaport said the US really wanted to keep him. And sure enough they did because they made him a pretty okay offer wasn't really great in the scope of going into free agency. There was talk that he was going to get like twelve million per year. Spot rack rejected. He could get like fifteen million or thirteen million something crazy. Of course that was considering injury. So to take that for what it's worth there. But yeah, I mean, he went on the visit in Kansas City. And there was some kind of buzz out there from some kind of radio hosts that he failed his physical which explains why he didn't sign with the villa at. Yeah thing and then it was so bizarre. I think. Was last Friday morning or last Thursday night that Antwan Odom who is former NFL defense alignment like randomly tweeted yoyos announce the Ronald Darby contract one year, eight point five million. And it was just like so out of the blue. It's like is this guy like the breaking news right now. So I wrote a story on that. And it was so it was so weird. Is that Aleph? Yeah, blues. Right. He had the exact the money money. I don't know if like they share agent that used to be agent or what I don't know. I don't see what allowed to action as they are. But anyway, so Antwan Odom forgetting that big scoop, and yeah, it's it's an interesting deal. Right. Because it's one year. It's only eight point tops out at eight point five. I think really it's only six point five in two million in incentives. So that's really interesting. You know, round RB was arguably the top cornerback on the market now the injury, obviously, her im-, but still he's only twenty five I think it's an interesting signing because I think it's probably the most controversial move eagles have. This off other than possibly the Michael Bennett trade, I think in terms of being the vice of a lot of people are kinda like why are we being around Darby back because the defense had success without him late last year, and we already have so many young corners. And I see that logic. I get it. That's how you feel. I'm not gonna begrudge you for feeling that way at the same time. I guess if I'm putting myself like if I'm putting myself in their shoes in seeing their perspective on this mound. Rby a twenty five year old talent, they traded a third round pick for in two thousand seventeen the you know, this guy they have some modest or some decent level of confidence in. I think either most physically gifted corner feel like from a raw talent perspective, he's their fastest Horner back when he's healthy. Clearly, I think he's had some games where you see him struggle in terms of mistake Ling or getting beat the titans game the buccaneers game from last year there, certainly some issues, but I also think back to a game like week one last year against will you Jones where if you. Look at Julio Jones numbers. It's not super pretty. But like if you go back on the film, he pretty much like kept him in the I think they don't win that game round Rb isn't going. So right. You know, we've seen him have that kind of number one quarterback potential there. And my guess that they're thinking is that they quarterback is not a position for them. They can easily just figure out right? It's not like, yeah. We've got this. No. That is not the case for the for very long time now. So I'm kind of thinking they're just trying to throw as much as they reasonably can at that position. And when you have the chance to bring Darby back at a pretty decent value. I think it makes sense to do that. And I think you kinda just figure it out. You have I don't know who the hell is starting at corner this year because you have round Rb you have Dylan mills you have avanti's of Sidney Jones you have received Douglas, you have on the bunk. There's so many options there, but I guess that's a bad thing. I think they're just gonna try to throw a bunch of stuff at that position in see what? Shakes out. And I don't think that's the worst approach given how they've really struggled to kinda find stability pointer over the years. Dennis specially how they how they value that position in this offense to its defensive line and its Cornerbacks and safeties man, I mean, that's that's why they're not doing a whole lot with linebacker. I mean, they're going to stick. It a lock in on those two areas of the defense. So yeah, I understand bringing Darby back and giving yourself as much depth at that position. As you can I'd like to see this group next year. Get a few more picks few more turnovers more interceptions here and there, but hopefully that comes a little bit more experience from some of the younger guys as well. The one thing I have noticed here. Belgian it's one of the things the eagles have in some circles been criticized for is are they sending too many older players here b l g I mean, we bring with curry and wisened day. Oh, and not so much with Darby Darby is like you mentioned still in his mid twenties. But the eagles bring it back, Brandon Graham. I mean, they've just they have invested in. Some players who are on the wrong side of thirty. What is your take on on the the thought that they're signing too many old players because for me, I see them signing old players. But I don't see a lot of long commitment to the old players that they're bringing in our Joe Gilio on the podcasts on the sudden. How did you replace? No. I'm saying I think questions out there. And he's one of the people that have asked that question for sure. Yeah. It's fair. I'm just kidding. I liked to. But he brought up that point. And I mean, it's fair in the sense that like, yeah, it's true. They're bringing in order guys. Is it really that abnormal? I don't think so look back to two thousand seventeen when they brought in Chris long and Patrick Robinson and Corey Graham and legare blunt and even during the season, they brought in L O B, those are all very much older guys. And they're building the core around these guys like they're not saying this is the core of the team. That's not what they're doing here. I think these are very much supplemental pieces, I write these are very much players who have proof. Even the instill play for the most part like Sean Jackson's gonna turn thirty three this year. Yeah. But guess what? He led the league in yards reception less season. So I'm not gonna choir him, just because of a number of his age that doesn't make sense. You know, you you have to look more into the age. Now, I get in theory. Like, you always wanna get younger. Yeah. And that's nice Zack Berman had a point out there. I'm really just shopping names, by the way in this pot down. Again. I don't nothing in fact, but you know, he made a fair point in that he said you could look at guys like Raanan, cloud and Brandon Brooks as ease of pieces you could be building around freezing. I don't think there's a fair example because the signings happened back in two thousand sixteen when heels had a lot more cap space to work with and they also didn't have a franchise quarterback contact looming on the horizon right now or the us are not signing those kind of core pieces there because they need to play the compet game in they draft picks because those are more valuable than ever especially because that's the way. You get young talent. And that's how you fit all in with your cap space. You need to be able to hit on these draft picks Kansas rely on building through free agency. Like that now for all the criticism that they're getting older who did people want them to sign out there that was younger. I don't understand you know, who the alternatives where were here, especially if you're signing. These guys are gonna be more expensively. That's just how it works part of the market inefficiency. If you will I think, or at least, I think, that's how the eagles view. It is you're getting these older guys. Yeah. But they're cheaper. I mean again, Vinny curry two point five million dollars. I think that's good value as opposed to what did you want them to do go out and signs Darius Smith or Trey flowers to like eighteen million a year, whatever they got. No, like, they don't have the cap space to reasonably do that mean if they really wanted to do it they could than they're they're being hamstrung elsewhere. So I think it's fine. I think in general again, you always wanna get younger. I think what this signifies in with all these older resigning is that you'll really see a window. To win this year into nineteen like they see that interesting that in the contracts, by the way to how they're like spreading all these cap hits out over the years like they're trying to lower this year's cap it as much as they can because they're willing to sacrifice a little bit in the future for this year. I think that's how they view it. I think that's why they're also bring in these older guys like, and I think that's fair this team that won the Super Bowl two years ago s we forget they see themselves in a position where they can win this year. I think that's how they should feel. Why not they were such a great team do dozen seventeen. They have the best quarterback in the division the best head coach in the division. You have reason to feel good about this team contending feel like so why not put all your chips into the middle? While you feel like you have this window. You wanna maximize it now as opposed to just I mean, you have to have some kind of I on the future that's any kind of general manager job. But I don't think they're sacrificing so much for the future that he can't balance that out with trying to win. Now, I making win that moves, and I think that's. Fine. We'll be coming up. We're going to take a look at the one position that the eagles really haven't addressed at all here. So far in free agency will dive into that next on BGN radio. I'm using colleges. Nate Sloan songwriter. Charlie harding. We're the hosts of switched on pop the podcast where Charlie and I breakdown pop hits to reveal how the music works. And why it matters. It's our job to help you find those moments within the music, whether you're a pop fanatic or a skeptic a teenager or an octogenarian non musician or professional composer every music lover. Will discover something you're opening in switched on pop. Yeah. And we think you'll have a lot of fun with us because you're going to get to hear from amazing guest musicians. Song writers producers journalists listen to switch on pop every week starting in March on the apple podcast app or wherever you get your podcasts. And we're back on BG and radio. Beal GD eagles have addressed defensive van they've dressed defensive tackle. They've even dressed linebacker a little bit. They've dreaded cornerback. They've address safety. They've addressed wide receiver. They've addressed a little bit at offense on the offense of line bringing back Jason Peters. But the one position that they have not touched at all this season is the running back position. And it's one of the positions that we came into the offseason most interested in seeing the team in and so here, we sit on March twenty first and we're now into the second wave of free agency. And my question is why why haven't they addressed this position yet? I really wonder what it is. They're waiting for. There are some options out there as we've mentioned on previous podcast Spencer where TJ yelled in Jordan Howard do Johnson. Just some of the NFL players that are out there. You know? I wrote a piece this week for bleeding green Asian. About the possibility of the eagles taking Josh Jacobs in the first or second round in the history of the eagles drafting running backs in that position and the history of NFL teams taking running backs early in the draft. And you know, that's like every other position in the NFL. That's hit or miss in the draft. I'm just overall confused at what the eagles are accomplishing. You're running back because this to me is a position at it's a vitally important position on this team. They may not view it that way, but they need some some talent at running back in in order to help out. Carson Winston to help out the passing game. I mean, they're running under contract right now. Our when smollet Josh items done on free, Boston Stott. And who am I missing? It doesn't matter. It's not getting done. That's those are there five guys under contact right now. But I have to believe they understand this to like, it's not just us. I'm pretty sure, you know, they know they need to do something this position. And I almost feel like the delay in addressing this position. Hannah makes me feel like they have something planned. I don't know what it is. I look at the fact that Spencer ware left his visit with lions without a contract. So we could potentially still get him out of the fact that to die who visited the coats on Wednesday left his visit with colts without a contract. And again, you kind of look at what happened with Ronald Darby. He went to Kansas City visited didn't get a contract there. He came back couple of days later signed the Philly for pretty reasonable number. Maybe that'd be. Yeah. Can I make a prediction? They're bringing back. Jay, they're bring it. I I what's going down. Yep. I'm the way you get him back to the point of being willing to let someone visit another team the Darby is that lets you drive the price down because at that point. It ruins the player's leverage. Right. Because he can't the player. Can't be like, well, you know, I've other teams out there interested in me while the belly. Okay. Then why didn't the colts signed into a contract then? No. So they it gives us more leverage. So I'm trying to say when a player goes like that visits in they don't get a deal. So we saw Darby maybe it happens with Ajayi. But even if he resigned, I again, he's coming off a seal entry. So like you still need to do something there. Even if you bring him back like you might need. This item are resigned him end brand Spencer ware or something like that. Like you have to kind of throw some more options at that position. Still. And I think we will they're gonna do something in some kind of either trade or free agency. Do Johnson is still out there in rumors Adam capitalist talking about him this week on the radio when he was saying that there's a lot of interest there from one team in particular. He wouldn't say with team, but we all know Kaplan's pretty plugged in. When it comes to the eagles. So king connect the dots. There think it might be do Johnson, by the way, he said it would cost the fifth or sixth. So that's case op. Obviously be all over that. No doubt. Another tap one thing in what we're talking about the running back position apparently on their podcasts that they have him. Jeff Moster we're talking about how Josten gives is actually in play for the eagles pick at number twenty five like apparently they like him, and they said the to not be socked the took a running back which would be sacking to. They haven't done it in what thirty three thirty four years. Not since Keith Byars in night, young eighty six P L J. That's the last time. The eagles took a running back in the first round, man. So maybe that's in play to maybe I don't know. But we will all very much be interested to see what they do it. Just feels incomplete. You know what I mean? Like, you're looking at the offense, and you kinda wanna get fully excited about it. But it's hard because you're looking at the running that the center being like, oh, man like the is not over. They can still do stuff here. I'm not panicking. But it's just like, can you do something you can give us some kind of thing that kinda be at least excited about even irrationally at the like, you can't do that. Now. There's this nothing there. Now, there's that's true. And that's the thing is. Kind of thinking to ourselves. They got some options out there. You know? I do think I you know, the reason a giant makes more sense than Spencer ware or somebody like trading for Jordan Howard. Or I think trading for do Johnson makes all the sense in the world because he's a different type of player than a giant. And I think that would make the most sense you bring gybed on on a cheap one year deal. Again, another guy great two thousand seventeen who was hurt last year, and you can probably get him on a cheap one year prove at deal. So at the eagles did with Finney curry and with Syndey. Oh and with Ronald Darby this this off season. I think they can do that with a giant as well. Aja is a talented player, and you hope that Corey climent bounces back, and if you trade for Johnson, you've got your Darren sproles replacement, and so I think I think the eagle's even if I wouldn't feel one hundred percent confident in that in that group, I think the eagles would feel confident there, and I don't know enough about Josh Jacobs to say whether or not he should go number twenty five. I just know what I read what I read is that teams are all over the place. On him as to whether or not he's a first round talent. Or a second round talent in. I I can't say whether one is more right than the other. What I can say is the eagles have done enough in free agency that they don't have to reach for any particular position. And so if they really like Josh Jacobson, they know that he's not going to be there when they come around in the second round they've done enough in free agency. So that they can take a swing at Josh Jacobs at the running back position and not feel like they have to grab an address you're here or a defensive tackle or a safety or cornerback or anything like that. You know, that's one of the that's one of the good things about how they've approached free agency here so far this off season. So, you know, it's been they have not drafted a running back since Keith buyers in nineteen Eighty-six, and you know, the eagles history of drafting running backs has been hit or miss over the years, but they've been hit or miss at drafting every position. So as every other team the draft is a mystery. So, you know, Josh Jacobs's most likely the number one running back if you can get the number one running back off the board at number twenty five again, not having just. Seeing the little bit of tape on on on Jacobs that I've seen I probably would not hate that move. Because at least it would show me to they're wanting to add they're wanting to invest something significant at that position, which they haven't shown that they've wanted to do that in the last decade, really. And it's the kind gesture is the kind of profile of a player who would be okay in the first round in terms of value. This isn't a guy who is just like a two down player easier north-south runner. He doesn't catch the ball. Basically. I'm trying to sail Europe blunt. It doesn't profile as that who isn't gonna be your three down running back as a guy who can only help you in certain phases. Like, no Josh teams that versatility where you can help you in multiple phases as a runner as a pass catcher. So I think that's the kind of guy who would kind of profile more as guy there would be okay. With in the first round, the example that I believe most of us was that eagles were willing to take Christian McCaffrey at pick number fourteen. If you made it they're back in. Two thousand seventeen and again, that's the same kinda guy a guy who can help you as receiver. I mean, that's the that's the big thing. Really? Honestly, if you're looking at a running back that high can this guy catch passes because it has to the premium resources should be going into the passing game. And if that can help and look we saw that you will rumored to be interested in levian bell. Ultimately, it didn't materialize. But that doesn't mean it didn't have interest. It's probably meant that the money didn't work out. But I think, you know, you're looking at that kind of player that would be really nice to have for Carson Wentz as a guy who can kinda just check down to in have that option in the passing game as opposed to really getting nothing out of year running backs in the game. So I think that's kind of something keep an eye on. I think that's just feel destination running back. They're missing. So maybe you get that in Josh Jacobs. Maybe that in the Duke Johnson that I that's something that definitely need to add to the offense is a pass catching running back and one of the nice things that we did see from Corey Clement at the end of the season. I feel like we got to see. A little bit of two thousand seventeen Clement late in the season. Whatever was going on with him. Whether he was dealing with an injury or whether he was just not all there this year. Whatever it happened to be I feel like he kind of came back towards the very end of the season. And we got a he started. We started seeing the flashes of the guy who could break tackles a guy who could be productive down near the goal line. A guy could catch the ball out of the backfield. And hopefully, adding him to the mix this year, a rejuvenated or a comment that's not injured dealing with some kind of problems. Whatever was going on can also add to that would like be like adding running back, frankly because he really was a non factor for most of the season this year. So I will be interesting to see what the eagles running back. They do need to do something real quick before we get to our next break. Beal g let's take a look at some of the draft prospects that are coming in for a visit here this over the next couple of weeks, you've got Oklahoma offensive tackle, Cody Ford, ole miss wide receiver AJ Brown Arkansas guard says. Center held a fro- hall TCU defensive end Eljay Collier Old Dominion defensive end. Otane zimmer? Michigan running back. Karen, hidden, Florida safety Chauncey, garner Johnson, Alabama state offensive tackle Titus Howard, any of those names or actually probably more to the point any of those positions really jump out at you. And I also seem in just tonight bright before the show here. Penn State quarterback money over warrior, so on two three four five six seven eight nine nine of their thirty almost a third have already been reported out there you're seeing off into Lyman, obviously with Cody Ford Titus Howard. I definitely think that's still on their radar. Even though you bring Jason Peters back. You know, if there's a there's an offensive tackle that you really love at twenty five you're gonna take him. You know, it doesn't matter. You have Jordan my ladder or whatever. Like, you're gonna take that guy in you're gonna right? Just hope it works out and have a plan for him. It's Cody Ford if it doesn't work out down the road, you know, his move over to guard at some point. So I don't even know Cody. What makes it to them, by the way has very possible? He doesn't the AJ. Brown was interesting. The that guy played a lot slot receiver for ole miss. And as we know heels are already paying the most money the most amount of money to their starting receivers in the NFL, especially having snag lower there at nine point four million. We've talked about nauseam in the slot. So I won't really interesting to me. I mean, even if it's not moving on from Laura this year, which I mean, I feel like they almost would the Jaffna guy like AJ Brown is probably like than selects said to me. He was like top thirty third somewhere. Thirty to fifty in that range in terms of picks. So pennsly- a day to guy for the eagles. You would think they have some kind of plan for him. But even if not Adler is still gonna be next off season. So that's something to keep in mind. You're still seeing them look into address yours in Collier in Zuma's. So these are not surprising positions overall. They don't necessarily need immediate starters. Again. I think how was. For the -ception really running back has done a nice job of kind of filling those immediate host, but time to setting themselves up to hopefully, you know, just be able to pick the quote unquote, best player available. If that's available to them when it relates to twenty five in and whatever, you know, all these other picks they have on day two. So you can't make too much visits because sometimes they're at least Howie Roseman has said in the past uses them, sometimes smokescreens, but they're looking into these prospects. So in easily they draft at least like one or two of these guys from the top thirty they bring in. So it's certainly worth keeping an eye on those names in remembering them come draft time. But for now, it's kinda just cursory information. I will up next. We're gonna get into a proposal that was made by the eagles. That was quickly taken off the table that has to do with the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys hosting thanksgiving games. Very interesting stuff here, and we'll also get into step with some Vegas odds for the Super Bowl coming up this year. We'll do that next right here on GM radio. Hi, this is Jim. Check out our podcast step over. We'll be blowers podcast work for all of your Sixers needs player analysis. Game breakdowns who the coolest a headband and more subscribed liberty Bowers podcast feed on I tunes, Stitcher Spotify or ever you get your favorite podcasts. And check out the step over a podcast about Sixers basketball, mostly. And we're back on BG and radio. Gee, this was very interesting came down on Thursday proof football talk reported this that the eagles made a proposal to have the Detroit Lions Dallas Cowboys stop hosting every thanksgiving. And instead those two teams would have to play on the road on some thanksgiving. So alternate home in Rhode one year from the next and diga lls, however, then withdrew the the proposal presumably, according to pro football talk because it was not going to pass. But this is an interesting proposal, and it really kind of highlighted something that I never occurred to me before. And that is that the lions and the Cowboys really possess a huge advantage over the rest of the NFL in terms of playing Thursday night games on the road doesn't feel g manifested in Super Bowl wins for those teams to. Get the shots in where you can my man not recently. And in the case of lines, not at all. But seriously. Yeah, this is a I feel weird calling a major deal. But f it's significant I mean because if like one game any single game in the NFL season could have huge ramifications like any one single game looking back on a season. And this came up by the way, like I looked into this on Thursday night. And I see that since there's in football began in two thousand six Cowboys have played just to Thursday rogue games just to on the road and neither of them were on short rest because they played previously on thanksgiving the week before. So they're playing on Thursday night on the road. But they're having a whole week to prepare the normally would Freni given game now by comparison in the same amount of time. The eagles have played five Thursday night away games on short rest in that same spam. Lonzo euro for the Cowboys and five for the. Eagle. That's wasn't that. And by the way, not fair. It's not fair. That's that's only for now. There's no way because of the Cowboys are gonna keep getting home games like this. It's probably gonna keep working out whether or not the hallways are not going to be playing road Thursday night games for the considerable future in the you'll probably will. So it's just it's BS. It's Bs even if it doesn't matter a ton, which I think it matters somewhat like the NFL should be aiming to make this kind of fair as possible. That's what you should be expecting. This should be a level playing field here. Definitely goal. Right. We want right for as much as they want parody. Right. I mean as much as possible like I'm not saying like, it seems reasonable to me that it would be some kind of level blame it shouldn't be zero versus five if it's like two versus five. That's like, okay. That's whatever. But like zero five just seems a little extreme. And I feel like the NFL should be doing a better job. Like, why can't we rotate Dallas? In Detroit playing home in the way. Why can't we do that? I think it would be disgruntled to putting the rest thing aside for a second. When is just be nice to have other cities host thanksgiving games. Like every once in a while. It'd be kind of new dynamic for other cities to get in on that while eastern keep the tradition alive of Dallas in the the lines playing every year. It's not like they're saying you have to end the tradition. The thing that I wonder about here is Teri Joan son, Steven Jones is on the league's competition committee. So I'm sure he is not exactly sad that yields withdrew this. And I guess we can talk about why they withdrew it. Yeah. I don't know. I'm guessing they did this exact thing with the jersey proposal back a couple years ago when they were trying to get third helmet law. Yeah. Yeah. They also through that. I guess it's because like the kind of just get a feel for it like exit poll, I guess you kind of say, hey, even of shot the past and it's like, no, no shot in hill. And I guess it's kinda like they just withdraw at that point. Because there's not even any kind of traction on it like maybe can't get anyone to even say that that would be interested. But I don't know why teams wouldn't be interested in passing this because it's clearly an advantage like you can debate how much of an advantage it is. But it isn't events to some extent in it's this unnecessary. Like there shouldn't there's no good reason that this should be an unfair advantage for other teams that the Cowboys have over them in it just is. No. And you're right. I mean, it hasn't been the difference between the Cowboys winning Super Bowls in the lines winning Super Bowls in the rest of the ladies Super Bowls. It's just it's just not fair. I mean, generally speaking these games that are played on thanksgiving are generally one by the better team. The lions do not typically win their thanksgiving games. In in recent memory over the last ten. In fifteen years since they started doing thanksgiving games way back in the day. The lions of been bad more often than they've been good and hosting that game has necessarily been anything special for them. The Cowboys again to have have not one Super Bowl in a longtime. So you're right. This isn't this isn't the difference between going to the playoffs and not going to the playoffs. But maybe last year it was maybe last year the Cowboys. I don't remember what they did on thanks giving whether they won or they lost on thanksgiving. But you know, they, you know, maybe if they if they have to play a role game on Thursday, maybe they maybe they have one fewer wind than they did last year. And maybe the eagles do in the NFC east in that situation. You know, it ultimately probably wouldn't have mattered in the grand scheme of things as far as the playoffs and all that stuff went. But you're right. You kinda wanna make it even when on and when at all possible, and it's just not fair that that that lines and the Cowboys don't have to play any short week Thursday night games. It's just not the rest of the NFL should have been totally on board with what the eagles were pitching here. And. I don't know why they weren't able to get that support. But maybe it's just one of those things it's tabled, and they'll take it up next year or a couple of years or something. I don't know. But it sure I think it should be addressed one of the thing. Beal before we wrap up west gate sportsbook has posted some opening odds for this year's and if the NFL divisions in the eagles open the season or open the the book for this off season as even money to win the NFC east with the Cowboys and five to four is the Redskins at eight one. The giants sixteen to one incidentally, only the cardinals have lower odds to win their division in the NFC in the giants b l j just a couple of these other numbers, and then I just want you to tell me if any of these things jump out at you bears open up as the favourite in the central at eight to five with the Vikings and Packers both at two to one of the saints. Have the best odds in the NFC south at four will at Fourtou eleven with the falcons at five to one Panthers at six to one. And if see west you've got the Rams as heavy favorites. One to two with the Seahawks five to two in the forty nine or seven to one. Dolphins of the worst odds to win their division in the NFL at forty two one. The patriots obviously open up at at at the top there. And you got the Browns opening up as the favorites in the AFC north at seven to five slightly head of the Steelers and ravens and the colts and chiefs easy odds openers in the south and west any of those teams any of those odds, raise an eyebrow. For UBL g the you'll Disley. I feel like there's so much reason the bet on them this year. I really do. I think people are sleeping on Carson Wentz. Which by they totally sleeping on Carson Wentz. Yardley the are under estimating Carson Wentz. By the way, if you have not already listened to the QB SCO show on leaning relations podcast feed. Go check that out with Mike who kissed in Moscow 'field breaking down Carson winces performance from the two thousand eighteen season. I think people are making the same estate John that people made back going into two thousand seventeen where for some reason in this is like a broader topic here. I guess I'm digging up like people are just so like against Carson Wentz. It feels like inherently like going into the draft. Everyone was hating him going into two thousand seventeen everyone's always tucked as a rookie. There's this so much hate for Carson Wentz. I don't get it. I don't get on me. How you look at that guy. Like, if you get to know that guy and look at his talent and say, oh, yeah. This is a guy I wanna bet against like, no. I don't I don't think that's the guy you want to bet against I'm not saying perfect. I'm not saying he doesn't have issues injury thing. Obviously, there's reason to be skeptical by distinct when you look at the whole package, I just feel like you have to come back to this. This guy my betting against or is this guy I'm betting on. And to me is very simple guy. I'm betting on. When you look at the eagles odds here you look at that. They have the best quarterback in the NFC east, and they have by far the best head coach in the NFC east. We know Washington in the giants really aren't factors to me it really at all. And for the division title here. It's a two team race. And you haven't had a repeat winner in the east since two thousand four and I feel like the Cowboys overachieved a little bit last year in some regards. And by the way, also they had like incredible injury luck. Like, no one got hurt on that team for the most part. They didn't have to deal with nearly the same injuries that the eagles. Did. I just feel like things are turning back in the eagles direction. Feel they've had a good off season to this point the and I just feel like they're gonna win the division. So I would bet on them looking at these other ones guess on the stands out too much at the top of my head here. I I feel you know, needless podcast. So I'm saying say the the best bet here. But I really think that's true. I gotta say I know the Browns have made a lot of additions this off season. But it does seem weird to see them atop any kind of deficient as having the best odds to win the division. I and I know Pittsburgh lost a couple of really key players in lady on bell and Antonio Brown. But they didn't have bell at all last year in the running game was just fine. And so I'm not I'm not I'm still not convinced. I'm giving the AFC north to the Brown. Just yet. I think the ravens and Mitch did to see the ravens with Joe flacco now no longer plan quarterback for most of the season inch to see what that team does in two thousand nineteen here. But yeah, I agree with you. I think I think especially the point that the. Guys on the QB SCO show made in the points. You just made about Carson Wentz are one hundred percent true. I can't I really would just like for people to it's on YouTube. And I don't know if it's on their legally or not, but you can watch the the America's game video that the NFL NFL networks put out the NFS right that NFL films put out after you know, chronically eagles Super Bowl run. And just find the section where they talk about Carson Wentz. Find the portion where you hear players talking about Carson Wentz. And what he did that season. How much he meant to that team. Remember your emotions when he tore his when he ripped his knee apart at the end of the Rams game. And how you can go from feeling like that about a player to feeling the way. So many eagles fans feel about him. Now when he really didn't have a bad season last year. It just wasn't as amazing as the season before he definitely took a small step backward. Last. Ear and he was he he suffered from injuries last year. But this isn't a jerk either that you have to like, well, grit your teeth and root for because he's got so much talent. Not only does he have talent. Not only did he play pretty darn well while it recovering from a knee a massive knee injury. And then also hurting his back at some point last season. He actually played pretty well after that saints game. And like those guys at the on this cube go show we're talking about that saints game. I think did color. Everybody's perception of season last year and people forgot about the three games after that his last game of the year against the Cowboys in Dallas, he played really well played really, well and people just people forget about it. Because after they lost that Dallas game. Everybody just thought the season was over in Nick foles came in and magically one the Rams game. And somehow got them back into the playoffs and stole a game against the Chicago Bears in the wildcard round and all those stole a game in the divisional round against the saints. I mean, just the narrative of the whole season was. Was kind of skewed against Carson Winston. I think is going to have if you can stay healthy L G with a full offseason of working with his receivers of working at getting better getting into getting into the playbook. The last time Carson Wentz had a full off season to train as the starting quarterback in this offense. He had an MVP type season. So that's it. I like it. Budget? Let's do it any final. Yeah. Any final thoughts before we wrap up episode number forty two g and radio. Gee, I think we're gonna be talking about Carson Wentz. A lot obviously means the starting quarterback illegal. So of course, we are and contrary to some would say there's a lot of pressure on him in here in two thousand and nineteen and I'm I'm very much looking forward to this season. In a big reason as I've said before a big reason why is Carson Wentz? And honestly, I almost feel like I'm not gonna say don't stop doubting him. Like, no do keep doubting him. Because I like that almost I feel better. I think about Hartson when people are doubting him because every time that's happened. Once again, he's proven them wrong. So go ahead keep on downing him in a let him be the underdog. I think I'll take that. I'll take the in by the way, the people who do believe in him still usually those are the people I trust the most in those are the people who usually are. Right. Most of the time in have good opinions. The people who doubt him the most actually. The wrong a lot. So I guess. About what they have to. Obviously, we'll see how it goes. But as far as we go here now we've kinda hit a little bit of a lull. The first and second wave of free agency, you're kind of over maybe we're onto the third wave. Now. You know, we still wanna see what they do at running back. The draft is coming up in about a month. We'll have the NFL schedule release about a week before the draft. So I think we have NFL owners meetings coming up next week. So we have some things on here. Still. It's not going to be totally dead. We're going to be some things that pop up.

0.5 PPR Mock Draft + Dynasty Analysis with Shane Manila

"Adviser guys welcome into fancy in sports podcast. This is your host of AAC are today. I'm privileged to be joined by the CO host of Dynasty Trades H._Q.. podcasts the the Kohner writer and editor for Dicey Football Factory End Amal Sanders homer as well as a fancy prose writer. Let's give it up for Shane Manila. How how you doing sir? I'm doing awesome. I don't think ever anyone's ever said they had the privilege to speak to me before. That's pretty awesome. They're at so let's ED's jump straight into it and listening to <hes> your podcast where you had an all-star draft team and you took mouse anders over Josh shake ups at the One oh three in a super flex draft why like I have mal sanders so far behind Josh Shaka's it isn't even close so could you just explain elaine why it's a mouse that are ahead for you. I didn't even well one. You know it's it's a podcast so I wanted to mix it up yep. I wanted to be like a wildcard like Charlie from <hes> always sunny in Philadelphia just to throw a grenade in that room and see what happens but also even Israel drafts <hes> typically go to draft Jacobs over Sanders <hes> but I will I from sanders in there before him. I'm in too many leaks. I don't even want get into it but I I was in a lot of rookie draft so I did sprinkle in some Mile Sanders over Jacob's <hes> and if you're looking for reasons to think sanders is better you can look at their college production in <hes>. I'm a big fan of the player profiler dot com page in on there. You can see that Josh Jacobs only had a fifteen th percentile dominator rating compared to Sanders thirty fourth percentile <hes> neither is really that good <hes> difference being is that Sanders really didn't get an opportunity until lil this past season <hes> because he was sitting behind Kwame Barkley who as a Penn state coach. You had no reason to ever bring that guy off the field he was that good whereas is Josh Jacobs really his only competition was a slightly above mediocre. I don't WANNA put com slightly above mediocre. A A good Damian Harris will say good player and Damon Harris and he really didn't do anything to really distinguish himself <hes> when you look at Sanders and Jacobs career totals <hes> they're pretty similar. Jacobs is much better receiver. It's it's night and day <hes> would he did on the field <hes> as a receiver but sanders is to me I think a better in between the tackles running back and he has no history three of injuries and he's on the eagles so I mean he's going to be on a what I think is going to be a better offense for a long time with the EELS. Although the raiders should have at least a good offense for the next two seasons at least F- assure unlike a lot of things I saw as well so I was looking at sanders no shame saying behind saquon Barkley. I mean these freaking Saquon Barkley. There's a reason why like almost any running back who's even in the N._F._l.. So right now it's at behind him but when you're given like Josh Jacobs I see both of them has having like not a severe workload in college <hes> because of Saquon on him because Jacobs is part three like a three man backfield so I see that as a positive for them because <hes> like both of them are fresh legs legs <unk> entering the N._F._l.. But certainly I see Jacobs as a bit of risk because he hasn't seen that he could hold up my main concern with Sanders I <hes> was where he landed. I know a lot of people like the dicey community is pretty split on him <hes> because he went to the eagles the eagles goes historically have been pretty good to great offense insists that they employ a Ryan back by committee and they're lost ads thrown out there like Underdog Pearson's rain how almost no one gets like any like line. Shares it carries. It's always like even last year. You had a Wendo Small Corey Corey Clement J._J.. Josh Adams and now you're adding in mouth sanders into the mix and you have Jordan Howard granted that Ajayi is probably gone so so I I I still think that that may not be as great of like a backfield situation as <hes> some may say so. What do you think is GonNa GonNA happen with the B._B._C. that they've typically employed and do you think that's going to change this you do this is the first time they've drifted a running back? Within the the first two rounds in a decade I think exactly ten years ago that they drafted a la- Sean mcauley out of Pitt and typically are historically they they don't invest draft capital running backs <hes> so the fact that they did <hes> speaks volumes to me <hes> everyone that they have in that backfield outside outside of Mile Sanders is expendable. <hes> there's no guarantee that any of those guys even make it to <hes> the regular season as being part of the roster now. I think Jordan Howard certainly will <hes> when those small would probably because he you know he's versatile enough that he can fill in different couple of different spots. What's I know they like Corey Clement? I I don't know about Josh Adams because he's just not a receiver and now you probably have on. Probably you have have a guy in Howard. That's a better power back than atoms and that's basically Adams calling card <hes>. I think it's going to clear out a lot. I think it would it reminds me of is what they tried to do. They had J. Gye couple years ago when they first got him for Miami and they had legare blunt here already where blunt got allow the the power runs and then a JI- was also sprinkled in also was used in the passing game a little bit <hes> I think sanders is a better receiver than a guy and he's clearly has better knees because while they're not degenerative <hes> so I think it's going to clear out now even if if it doesn't this season after this season everyone every other running back on the roster except for Donald Pump Free and Boston Scott <hes> their contracts contracts expire <hes> and if they let Jordan Howard go they're going to pick up a fifth round commissary of that's not the right word but a compensation pick form in the fifth round when they traded a sixth form so that's going to be a net gain but you know it worse comes to worse say Howard stays in he gets fifteen carries while sanders could get himself ten to fifteen and still get five to six receptions a game and still produce for you which I I'd be shocked. If Jacobs gets anymore more carries the net <hes> I think they showed as soon as Crowell went down they went out and immediately found the corpse of Doug Martin and brought him back so they can run him into underground a little bit next year to <hes> but like you said I mean both both guys I think are going to be in very good situations. I think J goes <unk>. Sanders are both very good pros does and the fact that they weren't beat. The death in colleges is definitely a pro for both of them and I do like I said I do like Jacobs and if I'm actually ranking hang on I'm GonNa Check Drift Jacobs nine times out of ten the only time I'm drafting sanders like I said it's a little bit of homer zone and I do like the hedge my bets a little but because he had the work history that you'd like to see <hes> on the draft capital. You're expanding in running back that early you WanNa see more of a history. There and it's just not there with Jacobs now when you watch him on tape I mean the guy looks amazing. <hes> so it's easy easy to convince yourself that he's GonNa be Great. No for sure like I I agree with the part that I think that their backfield is gonna clear just still had a few concerns about pat because I thought that they were going to do something like a thunder and lightning with Jordan Howard being like the just give it to him and let him get so many carries a game where defense out and then you have like not just a third-round back but like <hes> like he plays some first since I can down but primarily a third-round pass catching back in sanders for the first year and after that <hes> I think it's going to clear up a bit more because I think that sanders enders is very towns that I actually had him as my number two <hes> pre-draft running back because I just saw in him that I think his pass catching is pre is pretty good. Maybe not on the plane to Jacobs because his like extremely good but I saw him as a pretty adequate pass catcher and like a a good runner and I wasn't at all concerned him sitting behind Saquon Barkley because again he saquon Barkley and like any rhyme back would do so so I was also look at your other on like a different pick in that round. I saw you gang A._J.. Brown <hes> I haven't Desmond Number six dynasty wide receiver receiver so like how do you have them ranked in like why so because as shown by your all-star mock draft. It seemed like you had him a bit higher A._J.. Brown a lot. I know his situation isn't exactly what we were hoping for. Everyone was hoping that he would ended up in Indianapolis Pulis. At least I was <hes> Philadelphia because that's another situation that would have cleared out later down the road but whatever he didn't he ended up in Tennessee where they had the second fewest pass attempts last year <hes>. There's no way to spin that as being a great lane there's not I don't care how you look at it <hes> but I still I think he's the wide receiver to the class and going into the draft if he would have had a better landing spot or I should say coming out of the draft. If he would have had a better lane expire I would've slit him up above Nikiel Harry but Harry just happened to be you know the the One oh one going into the draft and then had the first round draft capital attached Hatch Dome and ended up in probably one of the better landing spots up. He can't move brown ahead of him now but I can't. I can't move brown any further live in too because the talent is so good and the situation in Tennessee can change <hes> Mariota's on his fifth year option so if he's bad this year there's I'd Tayo thousand percent chance that they get rid of them next year. <hes> but Mariota can also improve because he was injured all of last year and it wasn't just a nerve damage in the hand it was also also I think he broke a rib it. He had something like five or six surgeries. At one point. I remember reading the article in bleacher report that came out after the season and the guy was just they beat the smithereens so it's understandable that he wasn't able to play well now. Will Mike Variables offense. Be uh-huh be able to sustain A._J.. Brown and Corey Davis and Adam Humphreys is also problematic because Corey Davidson Adam humphreys a couple apple guys that you see over one hundred targets already on an offense that only had four hundred and fifty some odd targets to go round last S. Jerry I it'd be near impossible for three receivers to take up eighty percent of the targets. I I don't know of any team that does that. <hes> <hes> you know you still have junior Smith. He still have <hes> Deanne <hes> Dan Lewis and <hes> the Laney Walker if he comes back healthy plus Taiwan teller still there but situations change in the town dozen so this time next year for all we know Adam how humphries gets cut they eat whatever salary they have to <hes> Mariota all the sudden he's healthy again and they decide. They're gonNA air the ball out five hundred times a season and then everything looks Rosie <hes> and even if it's not next season again the town's not going to change still going to be there in two years and I don't really expect a rookie wide receivers to to break out in their first year so whatever I get out of them in the first year that's a bonus and now I have the same outlook on ricky wide receiver reside thing that so like every year you always have people who draft them with wonder later draft picks expecting like a just based off a a talented are going to boom right away but in reality it's more like a second or third year mostly third year breakout a four wide receivers because they need develop that connection the with their quarterback and just move up the depth chart regardless of how high their drafted so to A._J.. BRAND MY PERSPECTIVE IS I. I think that Marcus Mariota is that adequate normal like N._F._l.. quarterback and I don't think they're going to move off of him because he's just good enough off to not be moved off of the isn't good enough these fancy to sustain like good fancy production and you had Corey Davis who is so I believe in his talent. I think that Chris Davis is one of the more talented wide receivers in the N._F._l.. And just seeing him not able to do out in that offense at Ari Ari coupled with like the insanely low pass tents that Marcus Mariota does and obviously I think I'll go up a bit because Mario does not going to be injured does he was last year being to smithereens but I still think that they're going to be a very run heavy team. I heard this on different podcasts that they should just rename from Tennessee Derek Henry's because the end of the year is on like incredible pace. He scored like forty. Something fancy points <hes> in a game and that's in a like non P._B._R.. Foremen obviously he isn't like pass catchers probably win of like changed much but I still think that they're just so oh run heavy with adequate back. I don't think they're going to move off of just because it's so hard to get that franchise guy so I just don't see the like I I see the talent by on see the growth in my like Moto Matos who has been like talent <hes> takes a second see to opportunity and I think that's why I have wide receivers like Paris Campbell and wall in Kiel Hurry I I just really like in more but decay metcalf. I have all them higher than a Jay Ban as I said my number six dicey wide receiver so let's get into some news and you you were hitting. You really do have him low. I do him <hes>. Let me just go through my wide receivers. I have a head I have Bob Metcalfe Harry Hardman. I have down Markey's Brown even though he's on our Jackson offense is still think Peres Darius Campbell and then he's my number six and I actually think missing one so yeah. I haven't very low like again. I agree with talent but out and see the opportunity there and you know that's definitely a bad thing for wide receiver because you I mean fantasy. Production is born of targets but I also don't think there's Henry's as good as he showed at the end of last season because he did flash like that a year but the year before the year prior in the playoffs in a few games before that I believe leave and you know look I feel like I've been teased by him before <hes>. I'm not going to buy into them now and that's hard to say because at one time I was very big on Derrick Henry right but I'm just I'm just not buying into it <hes> if you prove me wrong than it's really going to damage a lot of my fantasy teams because I have a lot of A._J.. Brown and I have a an insane amount of Corey Davis across my rosters and now for sure like the thing is for me like I don't thank Derrick. Henry is as good as he showed last season like at the end because then he was he was something else I need. You could make an argument for him in the last whatever whatever four weeks that he is on top back to the N._F._l.. Definitely don't think he's there but <hes> the other thing is that they were winning. They needed to get those winds wants to get in the playoffs and like the fact that they won with that very run heavy <hes> offensive style like it tells me that they want to keep it going next next season so that's why I really had them there so just due to some time constraints. We're GONNA go to news real quick and we have Doug Baldwin retirement. <hes> he's a undrafted player from Stanford Ed had lay breakout fantastic career so maybe you could toss a bid. Anna and I talked about him. I guess on last night's taping of my show just the guy had one hundred and fifteen he averaged one hundred fifteen targets <hes> from twenty fifteen sixteen in Seventeen <hes> he was beat. You know again he was just beat beyond recognition last year's never healthy and he still got a twenty two percent target share obviously as low volume offense and he actually hit twenty two percent the year before that <hes> just a great player <hes> not hall of fame level you know he didn't have that long of a run run but that's definitely gonNA impact <hes> decay metcalf in Tyler Lockett and a couple other guys. I got a little <hes> the slot receiver that they had in Doug Baldwin <hes> Gary Jennings is ease of really athletic guy <hes> definitely slot receiver though there's is now. I don't believe there's a chance that play on the outside <hes> and if you look at his junior season he actually had ninety seven receptions and almost eleven hundred yards. which is you know it's really good and then last year in his senior season <hes> his receptions and yardage drop to fifty four nine seventeen but then he had thirteen touchdowns touchdowns <hes> so this you know he's a late round draft? Pick off top of my head. I believe he was drafted. In the sixth or later. Maybe somewhere around that also definitely a long shot but he's a guy that look a role is custom made waiting for him <hes> always got to do. Is You know take take that opportunity and run with it so he's a guy that I'm I'm snatching up in every dynasty league and he's a guy that I'll I'll probably spend some redraft picks onto in the later rounds just as you know the guys that I know that I'm just GonNa take a shot on the uptake is just going to say like I think that grudge as he has a gauge as he has he has a chance to be like like sudden-death slot receiver roll outs done see him as anything board at a slot just body frame and how he played a law in college. So how about your running-backs like I see that you have a law right back longshots. Oh yeah so I actually and this is one of the things ever fantasy prose was dynasty sleepers bursch and I love me some runningback man <hes> so there's Justice Hill who is basically how would you describe describe him. How would you describe him? I see justice who has like he's a pretty good pass catcher in like <hes> like I feel like a lot of people are sleeping on him just because they just got mark Ingram but I think that <hes> Justice Hill like he can be a very good running back in even even with a like who they have right now. I still think that it could be a solid asset in that offense and you know I come to a nut comp. I want them to let me let me get that out of the fixed assets right there I didn't come to but <hes> in my fantasy prose article I did speak about alleys basically the discount. We're cheaper version of Alvin Kamara for Mark Ingram in Baltimore now <hes> he's a good receiver <hes> he had a lot more receptions in his not as final season but the year prior for college <hes> he carried a tremendous workload in college but that's different. It was a spread offense. There's no way he's going to carry the ball twenty times in the N._F._l.. Because he's you know he's five Atan two hundred pounds so he's not a big Guy <hes> and if he does carry the ball twenty times a game in the N._F._l.. It's not gonna be a long career thinking about about six weeks <hes> but he is good enough that you can get him some some touches in space where he can make people miss. He's very elusive. <hes> he is very strong. Got Very strong lower body <hes> and I think he's a guy you know Baltimore for years now <hes> at least three years whereas they wanted Kenneth Dixon to be something <hes> and he's either been suspended or injured or basically just hasn't been able Oh to perform and I think Justice Hill is going to take over that role that they want it Kenneth Dixon the have where the guy can have five six receptions a game it may be eight to ten carries and with Lamar Miller there. There's you know there's innovative running plays you can you can run where you can get hill in space. Even in a running game mm-hmm <hes> you can employ some Joan blocking things like that so justice. L. is one of my guys <hes> unfortunately though I gotta be honest with the dynasty there people are starting to catch up. I'm seeing them go a little earlier in earlier in start updrafts which is a little disconcerting for me and like <hes> just siquijor thing I thought that him running four four at the combine like although he is of shorter frame it's nice to see that he does have some explosiveness awesomeness and he is very elusive open field but with one ninety eight pounds he definitely can't hold up that <hes> that like workers type role that we'd it all like him to be. I think that that can't Dixon Compass Ashi very like accurate because they drafted can dixon to be that type of like <hes> <hes> pass catching back who'd they also give a few carries to like a just listeners if you guys want check out our running back and tight end podcast. Yes we did that last time with tire Williams who's like a writer for the turf sports so yet you could catch at all in the feed but yeah I just see the Justice Hill has like <hes> Wando sleepers but now not so much because people seem to be catching up which is a bit upsetting but that's I guess we got another guy. Though at least we got Darwin Thompson and he still sleeper ish enough that he doesn't even have a picture on player profile. He's just a dark shadow <hes>. He's also about two hundred pounds. He's only five eight so his. B._M._I.'s level bigger or his B._M._i.. Is a little higher which is good for running it actually kind of want them a little chunkier so that they don't get destroyed on the field <hes> he just basically destroyed it in his one season at Utah State. He's an excellent receiver lever. He's a guy that I actually think can carry a full load in the N._F._l.. <hes> he someone that studied Alvin Kamara in as far as working out Alvin Kamara is a gym freak he works on his core and his lower body and things like that you know makes it harder tackle. Oh you and that's what Darwin thompsons been doing and he's a guy in this situation that he's in again. It's the opportunity he's got Carlos Hyde right in front of him who is is really not very good and he has Damien Williams who showed that he was very good for four games last year five games but you know we can get in that later his fifth year in the League and he set his career high rushing yards and it really wasn't that impressive <hes> so I don't know if that was lightning in the bottle or he's he's all justice undiscovered gem that everyone forgot about income beat out J._J.. Or you know can Kenyan drake when he was with Miami and now and like maybe Darn Thomson Christian McCaffrey in his AAC but like training like Alvin Kamera's a me. He's GonNa be some. He's already very strong in like <hes> I yeah I agree. He can be like that feature back <hes> and that's that's consistent with what Kansas City like likes. They'd like to have a feature back with a bit of like another Ryan back trickled in so like when you had <hes> back in like two thousand sixteen seventeen those years you had spencer ware and then you had Kareem Hunt as the backup than it flipped and then you had Kareem Hunt and a day <unk> sorry you had Spencer Ware Damien Williams than than Dan Williams contact the lead role so if Darwin Win Thompson has a chance to even get close to that role. He's definitely someone worth rostering in Erie single like league <hes> in Dynasty because a that Candy Ryan back like starting position is just so valuable for dynasty server fancy. It's pretty pretty much guaranteed like rb one every single year so that's just something India region. That's what he does he just he you know going back to when he had Brian Westbrook Westbrook <hes> that was great player but another guy that was just kind of short stature but really thick like you know just rocked up with a you know just a thick lower body so it was really difficult to bring them down but yeah and he loves he loves his running backs. That can do everything <unk> thing because you know one you save roster space when you don't have to specialize when like no this is my passing get back in this is my this is my power guy. You know you can use. He's roster space for other things and like you said Dade Spencer Ware Insure Kendrick West. There is always that other guy there because you know you have to injuries happen but yet Dr Arnn thompsons another guy and he's another one like I'm seeing people take him in the fifteenth round the startups now and I don't know if it's just because it also happens to be rookie season so he's kind of fresh in people's minds but I wish they'd stop doing that yeah. It's better for us if they don't capitalize on like what we see definite who'd you have is your <hes> <hes> <unk> as your last rookie longshot any he's not as much of a long though it's Daryl Henderson with with everything with Todd Gurley I it's very I mean if thought maybe something was wrong with tug early right you know he doesn't get run in the Super Bowl. And what world does it make sense that you don't use Todd Gurley in the Super Bowl in not in the universe that I live in <hes> so I fully expected the Joe mcvay to come out pretty much immediately after the game and say Todd it's GonNa go under undergo surgery tomorrow for torn something and nothing nothing. It's is just it's arthritis apparently his knees or just that bad. It's just arthritis that bad so I think I saw it on the show she you'd already noted it but you know they didn't let Malcolm Brown leaf <hes> then they traded up to draft this kid which is in the third round which is pretty significant draft capital <hes> you typically don't draft a backup running back in the third round unless you're completely stopped at every position and you know no team is no no one. Does it not not many teams that I know of draft backup or at least you don't think it would drift back. Running backs in the third round to draft capital. They expended on him is frightening if you're todd Gurley owner <hes> so he's a guy especially in redraft. If you're drafting Todd Gurley you better have planes to handcuff him with Darrow Henderson 'cause the guy look you could be elite elite winner in that offense. It's symbols at and look at Darrell Anderson like the <unk> Noni those their Ram Graham but they moved up to get him unlike another interesting. Note is if you take a look at <hes> C._J.. Anderson's interviews like with it's Fox sports <hes> around the time like after the Super Bowl you can see that there actually was a discrepancy in what he was saying he said on I I believe either the heard or undisputed that wall Gurley was hurting during the regular season when he got there like during the playoffs he said in and he made this certain he was completely healthy and that just <unk> like struck me as something like incredible because Tagro. They just paid him to be like the top paid running back in the N._F._l.. Than right after that and he's obviously so talented so that's just making me think that maybe there is like <hes> like like a a lack of confidence in girly girl is held that was corroborated by them so I think d'oro Henderson end matching Malcolm Browne's offer sheet like if you look back to the lions the lions tried to sign Malcolm Brown under restricted free agency and the ran's decide to match that and and keep them in their system so and they also have John Kelly who like we know that he didn't get the opportunity last year but he still does have some talent so it seems to me that the stockpiling running backs and they're not completely confident in girly in you know if they would have if they would have taken a running back in the fifth round. I'd say all right you know that's just a guy like John. Kelly was driven. I think in the fifth or sixth round last year breaking many <hes> dynasty <hes> players hearts because is there a lot of guys like John Kelly that you know that you do that. I'm like okay. That's fine you. You need bodies. You can't just have two running backs going into the season three running best that's insane pain but yet to trade up and get a guy in the third round. That's actually very talented while obviously many wet in the third round but that's man. If I'M A girly earner I'm not feeling good about it and we'll be talking more about <hes> girly a bit later on in the show so now let's go onto the main event what you've guys all been waiting for. It's it's a mock draft. We're GONNA do a half P._R.. Redraft mock draft and what's going to be as two running backs too wide receivers to flex seven bench one defense among Q._B.. Huby and no kickers because leads beyond is like no one can predict by WHO's good as a kicker Kaya Me Fairbairn scoring twenty points one week five points the next twenty points a week after so he was out scoring like one week even as Patrick Mahomes which is absolutely insane so that positions completely. It's just garbage so I think we're just escape over that so shame. What pick did you get in your draft as we were? We're discussing pre show I hit randomize about four times and it came up ten th like three of those times so I'm GonNa stick with the tenth spot. I and I got the Ford taught so. Let's get into it. Start the draft and I'm just looking at who I have on the board there went kind of towards the status quo it went exactly I like very close to how have it Ezekiel Elliott Saquon Barkley Christian McCaffrey so I think the there's like two guys who I would consider it the spot one of them's Melvin Gordon and just look at his stats like when you guys are at home just look at his stats. He's incredibly undervalued in the fancy community and like it very reliable pretty much toys r. e. one just with some injury concerns but given the Alvin Kamera's here. I think I just have to go Alvin Kamara so yeah. That's that's who I'm drafting at the Ford Spot. So how about you what happened in your draft first of all I'm very jealous. I don't have Melvin Gordon Gordon or Alvin Kamara Valvo and me <hes> they're going. <hes> Davante. Adams has gone tag. girlies Gone Levy on bells going. I got a few guys I'm looking at because it's Taff C._p._R.. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa fade the wide receiver a little bit. I got a few guys I can look at here at David Johnson or James Connor or Joe Mixon who I really WanNa Take Joe Mixon or I could risk it and see if he's going to come back to me on the turn and go D._J.. Joe Nixon which is what I think I'm GONNA do <music>. I'M GONNA hope to Joe Mix falls to me on the turn <hes> and if he doesn't I'm GONNA blame you that bad hit that they'll make it all badly damaged and then turned aren't it did not fall to me on the carried and now now all types of befuddled and I'm GonNa go running back again. Though I have oh man look at these tears teas and remember guys when you when you draft you WanNa tear draft so again. I'm GonNa Fade Wide Receiver. I got nick here. I'm going to drift NICK CHUBB IF I can't get Joe Mixing Nick shoves the next Guy Available on the board for me to on drafting at so so I have the twenty-first pig and like I've done a ton of these mock drafts. I'm very I'm actually pretty disappointed. Where like blended this time? Since OFTENTIMES UH-HUH I get a value but right now. I'm not seeing anyone who is a value at my spot so the people who I'm considering so easy are has dowling cook is is still on the board and but for me personally I have him like outside of my top twenty five pigs. I don't like Dobbin Cook. So what's your her like. What do you think about diving 'cause I own see like him staying healthy for a whole season that that's the only concern because if you can stay on the field the new offensive coordinator there is GonNa feed him the Rock <hes> but you know like we were just talking about girly would add minnesota do they went ahead and drafted running back in the third round <hes> with Alexander Madison so that was a little again like why don't do that to me because you're you're making me nervous <hes> but what other running back here on the board for you though I got Marlin mack who I actually has I actually have as like I'm just checking my rankings AVAS my number eleven eleven running back? I have overcrowding cook so although easy are has him as a pig twenty eight. I'm strongly considering Marlin macura because I In India counts I don't WanNa do that outlaw L. or a sexy he only had six occasions where he <hes> exceeded fifteen carries or fifteen or more and and <hes> I think he was a he was definitely rb. One on each of those occasions <hes> he was a top three running back on a couple of them and the running back yet top three free a couple of those times so I'm with you. Man Max showed a lot last year. He looked night and day from his rookie season. He looks like he looked like a complete back. GonNa because there is absolutely no running backs. I like here. There's Leonard Fournette staring me at my face and thirty two and I wasn't draft him with someone else's team so we're GONNA go Stefan dig here because I wanNa wide receiver one and that's what he's going to be this year and that's I say on digs is number one on in that offense because in the second half of the year he was the number one in that offense. I think that's more representative with offense coordinator switch and then if I wanted to Leonard Fournette still on the Board at at some point you have to look at value and go oh but you know he was in half of his games. He played last year. He was an rb one but then of course in the other half you wasn't going to fall back on someone I love. I'M GONNA take brandin cooks <hes> over Leonard Fournette. That's really the only guy that I would even think about here and I don't like Leonard Fournette even a little bit so I'm taking Brandin. Cooks folks wow I actually would take in for net. Their deaths was my opinion because I wasn't. I'm not a big fan but I just see that like at that spot for net falling like I feel like it just too good to pass up because people tend to forget how incredibly his very talented ditches he he doesn't really show like a his dedication on the field or off the field and like the every on on that team doesn't like him because of that but I still think that at that spot was at the fourth round yeah yeah again you know I mean honestly he's a guy that could have top a top five rb potential but yet passed on. I'm GonNa live with my decision so m._I._S.. Spot pick forty five is see the running backs and I don't really like anyone here. I have Kerryon Johnson Mark Ingram but even the running back situation. Ari have two running backs of this going perfect in. I have a great wide receiver crop at the spot of Kenny G. of robber woods of Cooper Cup of enjoyed settlement at pick forty five which I think is absolutely insane so I I really like Robert Woods. I think that everyone last year was saying that Oh. It's going to be cooper. It's going to be brand. Cooks usually brand cooks but I think that Robert Woods is just the epitome of consistency and in that offense especially like back. You don't know about Cooper Cups held after A._C._l.. I'M GONNA go Robert Woods here and <hes> see who falls to me in six six tell you what man I I love Robert Woods. I mean you're very similar wavelength tonight except for the Leonard Fournette thing and even then I can see how you you get there <hes> so I actually have the fifty second picks on just do that one in real quick. I'm just looking and I still carry on Johnson and I still have Cooper Cup on the board so I'm wondering whether stack my wide receivers <hes> I have right now two by <hes> by nine so I think I may dislike drop the by the drop the Ninth Week and just dominate Correo the week like considering the fact that I have him in the fifth round. I think that that's just too good of a value to pass up. So I'm going Cooper Cup here. Easy are would be a fourteen spots headed this so I really like my team right now. Cooper Cup he. He's if you're going to I I have no problem taking the wide receivers off the same team especially when that team Jack off in the rams have shown that they can actually support three top twenty four wide receivers. I amazing at one point last season. I believe they all three of them. Were in the top fifteen. At some point. That's just incredible and now I realize that rams offense is absolutely stacked so what you have is your next <hes> couple of picks. I'm real five pick fifty eight overall and this is where you get to the point where you don't WanNa look to hardy your roster construct while not construction but you know don't don't start looking at it like Oh should I just I'm just GonNa go best player available here. I think I'm not taking Aaron Rodgers here way too early for me <hes> but Patrick Mahomes is already off the board if he wasn't I probably actually would have drafted him here and not cared about it <hes> but we're going to go ahead I'm GonNa be I'm going to play a little safe and I'm going to go with Kerryon Johnson. I could take Tyler Lockett. I could take Jarvis Landry could take D._J.. More D._J.. Moore's another another guy that I'm going to risk is going to be there on the when I come back around so I'm GONNA go ahead with Kerryon Johnson thing in the thing I take you can't have too many <hes> running back ones right yeah definitely. I'll take all the MICA get that's Okay D._J.. Ajay more off the board or you're really mad when it comes around in my take in pick sixty three and and you know what though I how can you not do this tyler boyd who just had his first one thousand yard season in his third year <hes> he's on the board. Guess what now he's on on my roster so I'm pick sixty nine. I God snide done Tyler Boyd. He went six point eight so he you just want the for me but you mentioned that D._J.. More you're hoping you're get him at the turn and she's at myopic right now he he's the are forty eight pick sixty nine. It's great. I'm just look at all. The positions here Hunter Henry is on the board. I think in maybe maybe a bit too early. Although U._C._R.. Has a pick sixty one look at the running backs. I see Lamar Miller who I really like at the spot on on just because I think he's going to be the workhorse there. I don't think John Four men is going to be a thing where few years removed from him being really great but I also have Baker Mayfield and Russel Wilson at the spot so there's a lot of players that really love on this team <hes>. I don't know what to do you <hes> I think that D._J.. More is probably who I'm GONNA go with because although in the first couple of weeks he may not be like that super gray <hes> player with cam new in like his shoulder still healing his the unquestioned wide receiver one on that team and although Cam Newton isn't the most accurate. I just think that the value here is just incredible so I'm going to take D._J.. More with this pick now I have pick Sunday six. Look at the board. I still have Baker Mayfield the ad pick sandy six. Which is your Mary? Tendering your draft is definitely playing a late Q. Bay. I'll say that my mind is not so much top seven quarterback sorority off the board and like I also have hunter Henry. I Have Lamar Miller who I love so I have a lot of people all year but I'm GONNA go Baker Mayfield Cement that up and then the only two starting positions on have left <unk> tight end and defense so I'm going Baker Mayfield here so now it's back to you. I can't be mad at you. Mean Baker Mayfield's actually my number one dynasty quarterback and I got made fun of a little bit over for that but that's okay <hes> so let's see I got my fleck spots all filled up my running backs. Wide receivers tight ends starters or at least Easter all filled up. If if if you're the type of person that wants to build your starting roster before you know you worry about your bench he could do that here. <hes> Um and looking at my my my my choices here you know what actually I got Dante Pettis the <unk> Kevin Coleman Cam Newton Sterling Shepard Portland Sutton boy. This is a this part of the draft. I was hoping well fuller might fall to me here but he didn't so I am going to not draft to is about to draft and it instead. I'm going to play a little bit safe which I don't know I'm doing that tonight but I'm GonNa Drive Sterling Shepherd <hes> again. He's the number one option while that's right Evan Ingraham. He's number two well. He might be the number three option on that offense more. I think about it but I took sterling shepherd I am that was a seven threat. That was a pick eighty couldn't have been pick eighty but yes it was the seventh round yes it was eighty threes and now Alam up a pick eighty seven in round eight okay so for me storing shepherd like I honestly believe that he's GonNa be ahead of Evan Been Ingram like I really like stirring shepherd in even though golden tate kind of sabotage that because they like both kind of go into slow at times I thank <unk> but <hes> shepherd cousin slide like rotates in and I think that he will be the number two to Saquon. I just based off at target chair so yeah we do you have on the Board Randy E._C._r.. Wants Me Really Take Cam Newton but that that's not gonNA happen. <hes> for some reason they all think also think Jarrett cokes a good choice. Look at that point. I clearly made the decision that <hes> you know certain positions the ones these positions are just going to get drafted later and I'm just going to build every other you know position out and I'm even going to go more off the board on that and I'm going to pick a guy that I personally think is at least a wide receiver three next year <hes> Curtis Samuel <hes> he's not D._J.. More <hes> but he is a like a poor man's facsimile of D._J.. More and I also like how they used him in the offense fence when they actually started targeting him and get an phasing out Devin funchess last year so Curtis Samuel he's my wildcard <hes> law earlier than people probably would expect in this is the one where people you know if you're at the bar drafting. You're probably GONNA ask you. Are you drunk. I liked Carter saying I think that occur Samuel like <unk> beyond him to he does have some rushing like a bill dentist game. He gets a lot of <hes> under on like Undercut Ed sweeps on him and he could also go deep in with Cam Newton obviously shoulders concern by thank you will come back at the <hes> at my spot you're going to be the even more Matt is because I have tight end tears that after a certain point they just completely drop off in is still have a a player who dared cook was drafted before me but I have a better tight end on the board and especially considering easier hint. It's not Antonio Gates when you play the chargers. It's Hunter Henry. He's still on the board at round eight so I'm definitely drafting in here getting those choices made and now pick one hundred ninth-round and I'm looking and I actually don't love everything here. I need another running back really bad the two running backs on my roster but I also just I don't like who's on the board for me and I think that I could wait at that position. I Have Rashad Penny. She who strongly considering I also Kiki Cutie and Christian Kirk <hes> when he was actually actually on the field I I love Cutie. I'm I'm battering between key tea and Rashad Penny just because of the position need I have for penny and you have world for coming back injury concerns ongoing to go their shod penny just because <hes> I want that upside side out of a penny I think he'll be mixed in <hes> and late in the year I think you'll take over for Carson and they're gonNA do kind of like a fifty fifty fifty split <hes> especially after Mike Davis went to the bears like they have no one else is going to compete and they spend too high capital if it goes here first or second rounder <hes> for them to like not user shod penny. I also Kevin Coleman but I don't like the forty niners backfield based on how crowded so I'm GonNa go Rashad odd penny here. I'm up in round ten round nine. I know numbers <hes> pick one. I know six jared cook still staring at me in the face <hes> he is a heavy favourite of who they want me to select here <hes> still we're GONNA pay us on him. I don't want to draft a quarterback already but I gotta be honest with you. I'm looking at these offensive options and not one of them makes me feel good inside <hes> so you know if I'm going to draft a quarterback I don't if I want to do this. Here is pretty gutsy. The <hes> I'm going to grab my man Lamar Jackson because no not no not out nope wait I am I. I didn't pull the trigger I didn't pull the trigger as about to get so mad. I don't this high at all no it you know what though it's funny when you start looking at the board and you looking at your choices and you're like uh though I really but you know I'll take a guy. That was a top eight tight end last year. <hes> is getting no respect. <hes> is being flat out ignored in Austin Hooper not not Jared Cook Austin who tied the I see Awesome Uber Uber as I go. I haven't time my top time by mile. Vance McDonald on the board by insurance is yeah. They haven't down fifteen vance's. A guy loved to <hes> based on this how this draft is gone. I think you might be sitting out there while they he's actually apparently v._C._R.. Well V._C._R.. On I don't even remember but this ranking tear has him below Chris Herndon and Jack Doyle for reasons that aren't entirely clear easy Z.. I have him as like a Fr- like him as like my number ten tight end so I think he's a lot better Richard and he's gained drafted. I Love Dance McDonald. The only thing that guy's gotTa do is stay on the field to stay healthy. That's all we want our. It's round still around ten now around ten pick one eleven overall. I gotTA honestly I'm not liking loving any of these is options not even a little bit of I'm looking at even if there's handcuffs but I don't like handcuff and particularly I hate everyone. That's on the board at that point of the draft where I hey everyone. That's on the board so our I want to draft this guy <music> hi. I'm really struggling here. I'M NOT GONNA lie to Ya. I'm GonNa Take Jared Goff. Yep Yep Jared Goff off. I'm going to pull the trigger on a quarterback a little earlier than I would like but the reason I did that is the top thirteen quarterbacks except for Jameis Winston are are now now off the board and say golf last way longer than he should have based on. How this particular drift is going and now I I think the Jared Goff like in a standard draft where no one's like where everyone's not just going core back quarterback like your draft is like I think this mrs around the area like pick around Lebanon twelve where I had him? Amok does going normal drafts so I'm just taking a look at Mice Fahd's and again again I have water. I have some players here. That easy are loves like I have U._C._R.. Consensus Ninety six a cruise is up from Carolina. You drafted a like two rounds ago or something. It's still on the board. Are you kidding me courtesy. I Have Curtis Samuel on the board and Dan I. I just love that point the Jaeger I'm going Curtis. Samuel and I also see Ronald. Oh he went to pick right after me so I was GonNa go wrong Jones mid-next ax pick on but obviously now that won't happen so again now I don't like anyone. I don't like anyone on the board one twenty four eleven around. I'm seeing night nineteen Heinz I'm seeing E._E._O.. smid Dionisi foreman seeing <hes> <hes> on the wide receiver side. I guess of so some talent but there's Robert Foster John Brown. I just don't like <hes> I just don't like buffalo flow. Only a guy's a great pass catcher so back to you what you have around eleven pick one thirty thick. We're also go check out. See what running backs or still kicking <hes> not pretty <hes> I you know I think I'm GonNa get in take aac like him a lot. I'm GonNa Take Austin Eh cler. I know what he's GonNa do when he gets the opportunity <music> <hes> and I know that he's GonNa get me somewhere between ten and fifteen points a week even in a backup role <hes> and for some reason how stu still do the same thing in a starter role so that's Fine Austin there in the eleventh round surprise they found that far. He's a guy you know what letdown I've noticed. This dynasty drifts to for some reason he's fallen lower than I thought. I guess it's the new shiny thing syndrome you know all the the new rookies are a lot sexier in their their upside is a lot bigger because we haven't seen what they can't do yet. For for once. I actually have it all over you 'cause I could drift if Nike minds here to if I wanted to around twelve thirty five overall but you know what I'll take a risk in awe grab Ronald Jones the second here <hes> mm-hmm. I wanted to get him but I had today Curtis Samuel there look the guys look. He's only got to beat out painting. I'm Barbara if you can't do that then fine cut him from my roster like damn pain. barberry shouldn't be that hard but <hes> no Ronald Jones hasn't really shown much he hasn't even shown flashes at all gets injured and all of that so I just don't like him as a player ear but he does have undeniable opportunity all right so back to me and I just want to get your thoughts like <hes> on a guy who just went ahead and B a twelve point four Michael Harmon and people have been comparing him to like the very poor man's tyreek. So how do you say like <hes>. How do you as-as value in redraft dynasty? I can't even I'm not even touching him in dynasty. I feel like that's a I feel alike. That's just I feel like the chiefs reached forum. I feel like dynasty owners are gonNA reach for him and if I'm wrong <hes> that's fine and I'm willing to miss on him because he's not tyreek hill. He's just not tyreek. Hill is an outlier. <HES> hardman didn't produce basically anywhere I mean he he didn't produce in College College <hes> and I just I don't think he's going to be very good in the pros could be wrong won't be the won't be the last time and like I have him as my <hes> third or fourth dicey wide receiver so I believe like rookie wide receivers I believe in him <hes> in the fact that I don't think you'll be tyreek. These not right away. I think he's GonNa be like a career Tyler Lockett which with Patrick Mahomes that still like very very good. I'd so I <hes> wait. How many did you finish your twelve? Th Round Pick Dick around thirteen. Were on the clock just waiting okay so I'm GonNa look at my board right now. Pick one forty one overall around twelve. I'm considering doing something that I literally never do and that's draft two quarterbacks because of who staring in the face ace like I have jared Goff at round twelve pick one forty one and I'll Mosley like I have <hes> but like <hes> like eleventh round draft pick and that's conservative like core backdraft class but I'm just like what do you think should I go when I got breaker already got Baker. I mean Baker is going to be your starting quarterback. This would just be a guy for buys and for fund fund in whatever your draft for reasons unknown still has some town on in just just to make you feel better or not feel better but for your listeners I should have just waited on quarterback because now Jameis Winston Philip rivers or still sitting out there and Lamar Jackson. I had Jameis Winston a law higher injured Goff like Blake <unk>. I believe since his coaching staff <unk> Bruce Arians has vertical passing offense. They got a wide receiver talent in Chris Godwin Edwin and Mike Mike Evans Have O._J.. Howard hopefully he could say how they fingers crossed and <hes> and like I think they have a law town for James do while ants like he has to do well? It's a year that it's make or break for him in his contract situation and if he's going to still be a starter after this so look at in my board right now. I still have John Brown on the board. I just really don't like Buffalo. I'm gonNA reach for someone by WII CR and I'm going to go for upside here. Although do Johnson's on the board <hes> should I go him Jamal Williams. I'm debating debating because I liked Jomaa Williams since Matt leflore has hinted at a like a like a timeshare role frame Jones so oh. I think I'm just GONNA go with it's also half P._B._R.. Jamal Williams won't get any passing down work. Are I think I'm GonNa are we do Johnson here than let's see at the turn I still have I still have <hes> what's his in Jamal Williams available to me. I also have John Brown's toe. They're out a why John Brown's following this far. I'm very tempted to pull the trigger by I think I'm just is GonNa go for Joma Williams just to steal that up a now overdue were around thirteen and this is where I'm I'm just GonNa completely go off the board and Go-to player search and look up my boy Darwin Thompson and I am going to draft him in the thirteenth round at one fifty fifty four overall and his carrot A._D._p.. Is Well. It's more than two times of where trifling AMAC piece three fifty five <hes>. Here's my thinking it's redraft right. If the guy clear he's not going to actually get any run. <hes> and I actually need the roster spot. I'm fine now. Make a move but you know even if you WANNA take if you're gonNA take a shot on someone towards the end of the draft why why take it on a shot on a guy. That's just going to give you eight to ten points a week. Get let go all out on a guy that you know reasonably. You can imagine a path to greater success then. He is around fourteen fifty nine over all <hes>. I'm not big on handcuffing. Tell you what I actually like this running back anyway <unk> obviously not by himself <hes> do I wanNA handcuff really wanNA handcuff Jay's chase Edmunds David Johnson I do. I'm GonNa get an ensure that that that early draft capital I just spent on David Johnson with chase edmunds that that makes sense like handcuffing <unk> at this like this lay in the draft is like a strategy that I hope like all the listeners now. It's very smart idea just because I don't know if your waiver system like if it's a bids if it's like whatever ascend our thing like <hes> where all of it like like doesn't on one day processes says is you don't know if you'll be able to pick up the handcuff if your man goes down so definitely a good idea to handcuff here so was that <hes> year ear fourteenth round pick. I'm sitting on the fifteenth now. I guess I should let you catch up. I dominated pick one sixty five fourteen th round and I'm looking and I don't love the landscape here for running back for for wide receiver. I I still have marquees Catalina on like available but I also just don't like murky. Goodwin alm oppose selling from yearbook. I'M GONNA GO Darwin Thomson Yeah. I'M GONNA go Darvin Thompson Year and <hes> just hope on the upside lied if not it's it's a fourteenth round pick. It doesn't add her. I could cut him easily so yeah. I'm GonNa go Dr Ben Thompson here in the kitchen of your listeners. I think that I think this is going to be the running back one <hes> he might not make the roster for all I know but you know it's worth a shot for sure so I'm just GonNa look real quick and see who else is on my board had fifteen and and I do have one guy who I'm very surprised who fell this far but I also have great wide receiver talent in my why end my I have five wide receivers rivers right now and I have <hes> I have seven Ryan backside. I probably should go wide receiver Marcus Goodwin <hes> <unk> zero <unk> Goodwin by also Kalem Balaj who I think has a realistic chance of being the starter or these are being like a timeshare with Kenyan drake because for some reason that dolphins like they just don't like Kenyan drake and even though Kenyan drake vary like he's very good on I. I don't see in doing that well but I I really need a wide receiver here. So I'm going to go orrick a good hour could go Mohamed Sanu you here. I think I'M GONNA go Murky Goodwin at the spot and yet now all I have is D. S. T. so back to nope. I'm also looking at the wide receivers. I'm looking at guys with upside. <hes> there is my boy A._J.. Brown but yet not not redraft redraft <hes>. I don't WanNa take Paris Campbell do I do. I WanNa take Paris Campbell. I'm looking at Paris Campbell or Albert Wilson. I think I'm going to take a shot on Albert Wilson Wilson Excuse me who was having a very good season last year before he was injured. So I took Albert Wilson I n now wow sixteenth round for you and now defense and I'm just GonNa take whoever they tell me to take <hes> an eighty percent of the crowd wants me to take Baltimore Ravens and so that's what we're GonNa do I yet the ravens went a lot before me actually if you look back or if I look back back in my draft log the Chicago bidders in this just crazy won't ever happen in real thing but it's just bought they went nine ten the house Cillian Sane in my draft so yeah. I'm also on defenses. I'm looking E._T._R.. Eighty two percent wants me a draft Denver <unk> buffalo but it doesn't really matter so here's a tip for you guys here <hes> I actually don't have it on me but I four defenses. If you're drafting like in the back half of <hes> the last round and you don't have that great defense options available just Chuck Week One and check <hes> the schedules for week one and since at that point it's going to be stream mable anyway. <hes> suggests get a good good weak on defense or good week on to defense and then cut them after because it really doesn't matter <hes> but considering. I don't have it with me. I I think I'm going to go. Buffalo Bill is I'm GonNa go outside of what <unk> e._C._R.. Wants me to do so. How'd you do on your draft grades? I got a B minus now. I think I probably could have gotten a solid B. if I didn't draft a player without an actual photo in Darwin Thomson Johnson but I'll take it I'll take it drifted in a look at it already. <hes> should've just waited on quarterback in that's every time you draft a quarterback. Early is what you realize. I should've just waited on one and so. Can you read out your team your quick so cute quarterback. We've got Jarrett golf running back David Johnson Nick Chubb Wide Receivers Stefan Digs Brandin cooks tight end Austin Hooper at the flex we have Kerryon Johnson and Tyler Boyd Defense <hes> like I said we've got the Ravens. Alma Bench Got Sterling Shepard Courtesy Samuel Austin actor Ronald Jones tunes the second Darwin Thomson Chase Edmunds and Albert Wilson I so for me <hes> well fancy pros loves. I love my team apparently because although I did take darnold Thompson who has what like easy are three twenty five. I got a plus ninety seven hundred so I'm pre- I'm really happy with my team. I'll just read out real quick. I've Baker Mayfield as my quarterback Alvin Kamara Marlin MAC as is my starting to running backs. Mike Evans Robert Woods as my like. Why did you say your one wide receiver to tighten <unk> hunter? Henry Flexes Says Cooper Cop and D._J.. More Buffalo Bills Defense and then I have Rashad Penny Curtis Samuel Naim Hines Duke Johnson Jamal Williams Darwin Thomson and Marquess Goodwin. I personally I love my team because my second pick. I thought that I wouldn't like the way as going since I usually get value there but in the end ended up like opening up absurd holes for me. <hes> <hes> like gang Baker Mayfield where I gain D._J.. More where I did so I love team right now like your team better. I should've should've held held off on the definitely should have held off on the quarterback and that's a strategy that I I wanted to this like there's there's there's realistically probably Twenty quarterbacks who you could say I wouldn't be mad at you for saying they're gonNA finish as a Q._B.. Me One and that just shows the depth at that position is absolutely insane so unless you're gang absurd value like me what Baker Mayfield or like Patrick mahomes homes available to you in like fifth round like Aaron Rodgers six like obviously pull a trigger there but if not you could find great pieces like I think for you you had James Jameis Winston at in the twelfth still available after he drafted Jared Goff unlike the tenth or something so I think that like way on a quarterback is definitely feasible. We'll strategy so yeah so any thoughts that you had on this draft like just seeing how everything went down. I'm not happy that I kept getting sniped. It's like the computer was listening to me so next time I'M GONNA keep my my my mouth shut. <hes> not tell us when it's going to do the other thing. Is You know what I didn't want to. I thought I wanted to play the you know be risky and say oh well. Maybe I could get maybe yeah I can get and get Joe Mixon on the next go around while if you really want a guy in I mean A._D._p.. Be Damned I mean don't don't start drafting guys seven rounds before for you need to but if you're within you know six seven pitcher even around eleven picks and you know you know there's an desert change that you won't get him on the way back <hes> <hes> draft draft Joe Mixon there that changes the whole composition might team and now if you if you like your guy in like we're not saying tango crazy like a giant Daniel Jones like I mean if you want to get you guy like that probably hold off but if you WanNa get your guy on your fairly closed like definitely go for it and a go get your guy and you're GonNa be happier with your team if you do more often than not so I think we're going to wrap it up for his podcast guys. Thank you all for listening and Shane. What are some projects that you're working on? And where can we find you. You can find me on the dynasty trades H._Q.. podcast every week <hes> mom all over the twitter <hes> D._F.. Underscore Shane <hes> dynasty football factory DOT COM <hes> biggest thing I'm working on at the moment is were actually working on our redraft guide <hes> because we also do redraft often debbie in college football and all that be actually working on my read every draft guide that that's going to come out <hes> right now looking at mid July July <hes> you know and then obviously we'd have to update it as the the off season progresses because we know they'll be injuries injuries and whatnot but it just check out the podcast sometime we <hes> we try to make sure that we have funding. Keep it informative but we definitely make sure that it's fun <hes> because well there's lots of things that aren't fun. So why would you wanNA listen to something. That's not now I completely agree like does do whatever's Evers Fund <unk> fancy ball except for y'all who like excessively gamble on it and stuff like that fantasy football just meant to be fun and like I just hope you guys just like half on the gas playing fancied.

AP Radio: Patriots week

"Good evening welcome in to your favorite hour of the week. It's arid great pride radio presented by billions west discount liquors Pete Sweeney. The editor. In chief era had pride hanging out with the lead film and draft breath analysts his name. Is Ken Swanson. Cristiano Sarah Helping US out behind. Glass WanNa get involved talking to the chiefs with us. Please do approaching house. He purpose text text line six nine three zero six contact us on twitter at six tends towards Casey or at Arrowhead Pride will be doing a live mail bag toward toward the end of the show. So get your questions in. We are coming off the chiefs best defensive performance in recent memory. Mary Forty two nine victory over the Oakland Raiders. I like to do this whenever we start this show because I think I'll game day. You have ron motion like you. Don't really know what no you go. You got to watch it you gotTA replay it. You gotta look at the plays that you like you gotta edits sink in what it is all mean so can't sure you've done that a number of times Bhai now what did you take. Away from cheese raiders. I don't think the raiders are as good as Derek Carr thinks thinks they are. Did you hear him today. Making excuses basically explaining away the portable performance of the raiders. I think the turnovers over my gosh like he was he was ridiculous I thought I thought defense played phenomenally. I really do. I'm very optimistic about this group. And obviously the raiders didn't do much but you know the two the two plays at the chiefs made With the interceptions big plays that. Were studying preparation right. I mean that was those. Were those those were intimidating. Those looks anticipating those plays. I thought this group played a really well rounded game. I think you've got to be very optimistic about the defense the offense we'll get there. There's a lot to impact with that group. I think there's there's a long way to go for this team. And they just. They're just not clicking on all cylinders right now. Yeah the interception by tire. Matthew was really great because it gave me the sense of that rookie. Marcus Peters eaters feeling that nose for the football then. I just don't recall recently with chiefs defensive backs and then for almost immediately you know twenty thirty minutes after whatever it was in real time. His protege Brian Thornhill with the pick six it it was a glimpse of the now and and for me the future and man. How long has it been since you've been excited about the defense? They didn't have very many bowl skills in the secondary Kandara last year. I think he kind of saw that and I mean just even turning and locating the football out of the Times was a challenge. Still a challenge for some of the players on this roster right. You're seeing some impact plays from. I'm the safety positions. The safety group is is excellent. You've got to be really optimistic about that group in particular so I think you know up the middle in the secondary you've got you feel feel really good about that group. I still think there's some questions about the corners but the good thing is though safeties in the ball skills and in the playmaking ability that they've put on tape for this entire season. I think helps that cornerback. A little bit grew a quarterback group a little bit and they can kind of protect those corners a little bit. So I think it's they needed. They needed to make some employees. They need this show and put that on tape And I think you know moving forward that's really gonNA help this group to with the secondary playing so well makes you think of the off season how we were nearly crying for a cornerback or safety. Still need a quarterback. I I know I understood quarterbacks I listen I before I understand. I'm just saying I look at this moment right here so now we're we're getting ready for Patriots Week. It's week thirteen going into the season. A lot of the assumption was Tom Brady. And the Patriots Offense Pat Mahomes and the chiefs offense. This is going to be an absolute shootout just like last year thirty points reached team in the AFC title game and here. We are weak thirteen. And we're in the twilight. I liked Tom Brady and the Patriots offense stinks. Since Patrick Mahomes has gotten back it really hasn't been what we expected coming into the year note. The Patriots have one of the better defenses in the league and one of the strengths of this. This current chiefs team has is is a cornerback and safety play. And that's the game we're entering and I am excited added about chiefs patriots. I I really have. But this is not what we asked for or thought we'd get. You can't predict football. You can't exports I think here's the thing the quarterback group. I think there's still some concerns about it but here's the thing. We are three quarters through the regular season. And it's it's like you keep thinking it's going to come back to bite him and it just hasn't so I mean you've gotta it's an admirable. I think it's a great job by Steve Spagnolo schematically radically. I think they've done a phenomenal job of playing team defense. And maybe helping those quarterbacks a little bit I think they've done a good job. Upfront affecting the quarterback enough off and I think the safeties has made made some really good plays on the football so you put out altogether and I mean they've really done a great job and playing this complementary every defense. They're protecting some of the guys that maybe You know maybe aren't aren't up to snuff necessarily but they're hiding them. Well I think that's that's that's something to be optimistic about moving forward and hopefully that can sustain through the playoffs win. The game changes a little bit and in the in the challenges. It is become a little bit more daunting. I think it's fun where the season stands. I love that the AFC west is over with four games to play. I love that the AFC he is wide open and anything can happen here. I I'd like the chiefs have one less loss and you could have gotten one of those games. Kazan you'd be a little bit more in the mix but few in four in a row. I think you've got a pretty good chance of at least playing yourself into a buy in. It starts with Sunday against the New England Patriots and I talked about this on the drive in Carrington kind of lead me into it to be fair and they need this game I think for their own self confidence. Because you're not gonNA have a chance to do that again against the bears the broncos in the charges. What is she should win all those games? This is a game that and the last one that is in question and so I think that's why it's so big so we're going to get into some chiefs news. We're going to welcome on Craig. Take a little bit later to talk about what he saw on film with defense. Kent a dove into Mahomes. So we're going to talk about that. Derek Nadi talked to us in in the locker room will of course go around the nation and will close this thing with the mail bag. But let's start with the chiefs news from today in the injury report again injuries with this team. We thought they were healthy. Not so fast. Four players did not practice to start Kansas City chiefs patriots. Atri it's week Clayborn Rashad Fenton two quarterbacks than two running backs Damian Williams and Daryl Williams they all did not practice but to me it's still oh bearing the lead for Frank Clark being limited another issue for Frank Clark and it's not the next this time it's the shoulder when you look at all these injuries can't how concerned are you. I mean I. I think you've got to be a little bit concerned about the cornerbacks potentially because I believe they only have three others on the roster The shod Berlin Kendall Fuller who is not looked good in was actually playing a little bit of safety last week and then drivers word so that's something that definitely concerned about. The running backs obviously brought Spencer wearing. I think we'll get into that in a little bit but Those are concerned. But I obviously Frank Clark if if the chiefs are going to do something against the New England the Patriots. I think you gotTa Have Frank Clark on the field. I think you know He. He has been able to impact plenty of games this year Especially recently I wasn't really able to affect it all that much. I think he had one big tackle for loss during that game last week. But if you're going to try to beat the Patriots in New England I think you need to have you know your highest paid defensive player on the field. I get the Patriots. Didn't look it against the Houston Texans. I'm in this mindset that the chiefs can't make a mistake. They need everything in their power to beat this Patriots Team Absolutely Ryan Clark Clark not to be healthy. I mean this guy who stood there in the locker room and said I can't perform if I'm not healthy and here we go again with this limited practice like if he can't be one hundred percent then he shouldn't go this weekend so remains to be seen. What happens with that the other news here? We mentioned the two running backs and Miss Practices. Start the week Damien Williams and Daryl Williams and so the chiefs bring back a familiar face in Spencer. Wear when you heard this news Kent. What'd you think Well I was a little bit worried about About the running back health. Obviously I mean that. Just Kinda indicates a Daryl Williams is probably GonNa miss some time and Damian probably. He's out to I I yeah on you. I was Kinda swimming honestly but you know we're Spencer. Where like I think the important thing for Spencer where and I am very relieved that he's here because one of the things that he is very very good at is pass protection and the chiefs? Need to protect Patrick mahomes today or on Sunday but just moving forward as well not as a steady presence a guy that they can entrust to to stay in protect the quarterback Darwin. It's up and down. It's pretty shaky. You can't just cut players like he does like that's basically the only thing he doesn't pass protection. Section is go at the knees lesean McCoy they've had issues with him already. This season about knowing the protections that's one of the reasons earlier in the season he kinda got in the Doghouse. How's little bit the dispute on the protections they need? They need this They needed Spencer where he's not dynamic potential really anymore but past protections are gonna be so important the last quarter of the regular season into the playoffs. I love our head pride polls. We get so many votes every time. Polled our audience earlier this week. More than three three thousand votes. Should Darwin Thomson beat this team starter. Sixty seven percent two thirds of chief's Fan already to give the starting running back position Darwin Thompson and I don't blame him. I think he looked the best as far as running backs go in a long time for the chiefs. I understand that is a raw reaction. I still still similar to the way I did on Sunday. But you can understand why the chiefs go inside Spencer. Where Andy Andy Redid? Make a point of it today to say he'll be involved won't be in starter. won't be starting snaps but he'll be involved on Sunday. Let's say for argument's sake. The chiefs have Napa Koi. Darwin Tom Spencer Ware Now wearing number thirty nine by the way and the sausage Anthony Sherman on Sunday. What do you think the carry split? Is there as far as carries her concerned concern. I think it's GonNa be Leshan mcquaid leading the way. Darwin Thomson in spells. I actually I think Anthony. Sherman will Out Carrie Spencer ware on Sunday. Well I don't know of and not even asking for bold predictions here. I know I. I don't know Spencer Spencer where he spencer where my out snap Sherman. Though I don't know how many carry Spencer where he's actually going to get. I think he'll be kind of utilized some some some you know third-down work. They want to keep the back in and stuff like that. So but I think Sean McCoy is GONNA wind up getting the majority of the load and good on Indie read. I guess for the load management thing because turns out they kind of needless Shawn McCoy. Now they kinda need him to kind of step in in a very hostile environment. I don't think you want Darwin Thomson Having to lead the way in such a Insane Sane Environment to start off his career with that. The ball is your baby. The ball is your baby. The baller baby. Don't drop the Football Sean. Hold it in and I'll feel a little bit better about it. I think there's a reason to put Darwin Thomson in the game and get him some more steps toward the ended the game I understand it was garbage time it was it felt like the chiefs needed yardage and for the first time they could get it while the opposing team knew exactly what they were doing like. When is the last time we felt that when Kareem Hunt was here? Okay I'm I'm as big of a Darwin Thomson Fan. I was early on Dr with Harrison with the with the K.. C. Draft Guide. We had high regards him. We liked him better than where he was drafted. We thought he was a better player within where he was taken. I'm a Darwin Thompson Fan. I just WanNa pump the brakes a little bit. It was it. The the game was out of hand. The raiders quit they. They ran the football. Well don't get me wrong. Darwin Thompson had some very splashy plays. Okay here's four yards a carry. Sure I just I don't I don't want to I understand and I'm just telling you don't be left at the station when the D train blows the final list. A lot of offensive talk to get into his defense. which was the star of the show on Sunday after the break? We'll talk defensive film analyst Craig Style. You're not going to miss it. It's Arrowhead Pride Radio Arrowhead. Oh had pride radio. Welcome back into Arrowhead Fried Radio Big night Wednesday of Patriots Week. Pete sweeny Chris who knows Sarah Kent Swanson. We're excited can you tell yet can hear it in your no. I'm I'm irrationally excited for this football game. Have to be the proven. Yeah I mean. It's the last big test for this football team and it's probably I mean let's be honest. Patrick Edging Mahomes didn't play against the Vikings of the packers so they really haven't had a big test like this since the Ravens and this is a road game in a long road test real excited with that in mind. Let's welcome on our defensive film analysts Craig Stout the best defensive performance in a while I want to open it up. What did you see just in general out there here on Sunday? Boy I really love with these did take away the horizontal passing game that the Oakland raiders brought to the table last weekend. They knew that their car was going to be a serious vertical threat to us a little bit more manage coverages from Cohn techniques to Kinda the help against them convince splits. It was just great. It was a great game plan by him. They didn't get much help from the pass. Rush the run defense was pretty poor and it didn't really matter honor because the game plan. What solid out his bag? Nola and Derek Carr just frankly wasn't very good despite what he said in his press coming. You got a good. Hi For this and one thing I remember during the training camp aspect of this Steve Spagnolo time. This is going to take the players years who've never played before playing with each other adapting to a new scheme. You're a guy who's focused on this since week one. What have you seen when it comes to the progress week? One week thirteen. Oh there's definitely been progress. It may not be in the run defense although it seems thanks guys understand generally where they're supposed to be there. Just maybe not winning their one on one battles or you know getting quickly enough to the gaps but especially on the back end weak one. They were still sorting out. The Communication Tire Matthew is playing a deep safety role and was trying to get those guys a little more organized organized on the back end. Now as he's kind of transition to this lot corner role for the chiefs after Kim Fuller's You know injury. It's turned turned into Tire Matthew direct traffic from the slot and it took him a little bit to even get that down this week. We got to see a lot more understanding standing on Thornhill Bruins able to talk to each other sort things out quickly and on thornhill interception. They did that and he was able to drive downhill on that play. It just seems like things are coming a little more second nature and you're seeing that on the back end guys are in the right. Spots guys are in positions. You're not seeing as many blow coverages but if they continue growing like this this is this is fantastic. We saw last year under Bob Sutton that they didn't really get it at. Aw throughout the entire season this year on a completely new defense these guys have picked it up really really quickly. It's great to see Craig. We are seventy I five percent done with the regular season. You and me Matt Matt Lane. We've all been talking about the need for the cornerback position but or twelve twelve games in. They haven't been burned massively. By the quarterbacks they gave up four catches for thirty eight yards last week at. How sustainable is this quarterback group and is it going to come back to bite? Yes probably GONNA come back to the point I. I don't think it'll happen throughout the rest of the season though honestly if you look at ah types of offenses that they're playing the Patriots the broncos although it remains to be seen what drew lock is going to be over the next couple of weeks but Mitchell trubisky Fifty Philip rivers. None of these quarterback are really going to test Berkeley the cornerbacks. It's Kinda get to fit on the shallow rap a little more that's that's their forte. We will see once we get to the play offs that they just see Lamar Jackson again. If they get to see Shawn Watson and the Houston Texans again a little. Is it more of a vertical threat. The last time the chief play the tech than they were a bunch of dropped balls away from that being an awful performance by the cornerback. So Woolsey if they've gotten together a little bit more that's really going to be. The True Test is how they perform in the playoffs. Because it's going to be a lot different than what they're seeing here in the year. Craig Stout Defensive Film analysts at Arrowhead Pride DOT COM has a new article up early this morning. Today you can find it on the website. You scroll down a little bit against the raiders. Chiefs made bad defense. Look or I'm sorry. Bad offense look worse. You mentioned Kendall Fuller in the article and he drew through a lot of attention because he was getting getting some different looks in his return to the lineup. What did you make of the way spagnolo utilized fuller this week? They really Kinda dues their safety a lot more for you know. And they quarter scheme where they had this safeties playing a lot. Closer to the line of scrimmage to help with run defense and the rob some of those intermediate routes like I said the vertical routes weren't necessarily as important to cover this week and win kindle fuller came into the game in Madine defense. That's when these numbers actually been bringing in his third corner. Not In the nickel usually goes three safeties is there. But the dime Defense Winn- they brought in kindle fuller kindle fuller played a lot of blet safety looks deep next along thornhill and a rep for sure of Kendall Fuller playing a single high safety with both thornhill and Matthew up in the box. It's it's just different. It's more things that he's put on tape. I'd be very curious to see if that sort of stuff continues because the chief think group is definitely their strength and so. I think that they're leaning on it a lot. More putting playmakers in good positions to disrupt the tiny disrupt the routes and. It's working WPRO far. Craig I'll get you out with this As you look toward Patriots Week what type of strategy do you envision. We'll do more of what you saw last week. Raiders or you think this is a whole new ballgame for the two. I do think that it's a little bit different of a ballgame. You can't count out now bill belichick and Tom Brady at any point. The executions going to be significantly better than we thought against the raiders. And I just think that James James White and Julian Edelman our worst matchup for Steve Than Darren Waller Josh Jacob that group of guys. It's good but it's not necessarily that's a -sarily the same sort of threat. That are I think they're gonNA put a safety on white all day long wall. They remains to be seen whether whether or not that safety blanket because they're also probably going to need a double element in the middle of the field. Really Lean on those cornerbacks to have to do their business out wide wide against some receivers. That maybe aren't the best in the league but can create a little bit at the catch. Boy It's Craig Stout you can catch his fine work at our head. BRIDES DOT COM against the raiders. Chiefs made a bad offense look whereas thanks correct all right. Let's turn the page now to What was Patrick? Mahomes this week You dove into this the offense as a whole even with the poison we now put and it's weird to say to get forty points. Right was not what we continue to expect from the chiefs offense when you watch the the film were some of the things you noticed or nine points defensively but I mean thirty one points. I still light right. I'm I'm stunned that this group was able to do that. I it it did. There's there's no rhythm right now for this offense. There is a lot of inconsistencies. The play calling does not look like we're used to seeing when it comes comes to this football team I think Patrick mahomes since he's got back. Looks a little bit skittish I really do. I think you know there's a little bit of a lack of a trust with the interior offensive line. There's there's a lot of little things that are going on with this protein offensively and it's contributing to a lack of rhythm a lack of I'm fluidity to this offense. And you're not seeing as many explosive plays. Because there's there's a lot of moving pieces parts here. Be You know the lack of continuity with all the injuries be it mahomes maybe a little bit timid in the pocket with the Interior offensive line. Not Trusting them You know be tyreek Hill not being able to use him as chesapeake shifts and motions because the hamstring. There's all these little things that are going on with this group. That if they get figured out they're going to be the same group. Were expecting waiting to see but I mean thirty one points. It's hard to be too negative about it but at the same time. That didn't look good. There's like they had like two hundred and fifty yards of offense. There's a lot to little things to be concerned earn. And they got a huge test this week the big test of the season. If they don't get it right it could. It could get ugly. I think one thing that was noticeable. Was You saw a few times where you're right right. Instead of stepping up in the pocket mahomes was choosing. It seemed almost to throw these. Kobe Bryant Kilby. Falling back passes and so it was worth asking mahomes. Is he feeling a little bit uncomfortable. Stepping up into the bucket. Yeah definitely fleet confident. I mean we've kind of gotten our whole along group back now and so I feel like I'm gotten better and better stepping up. I think as seasons go on Kind of mentioned during on the Bali I feel like there's sometimes I drift back and keep working on keeping hitching and hitching in the pocket. Whatever have a clean pocket so I can make those downfield seven's good answer slot confidence but he did say it is something they noticed but boy? Yeah but like. I don't think the tape necessarily matches that like I. I didn't see him stepping up in the pocket a lot. I didn't see him. You know hanging in there. I think he was early to exit the pocket several times this week So I mean I I. Obviously he's not gonNA put it off of line of glass even Never Ed. I don't WanNa get too far down the line of criticizing mahomes because his poorer performance armaments is still very very good. And he's one of the best. I think he's the best quarterback in the national football league but even kind of when you heard him talking about when he came back from his injuries talking about so How he's wearing a little bit of a knee brace mostly for his own confidence right? I wonder if there's just a little bit of of of often often lacking in you know the there has there has to be. He's a human like we forget right located his name right. There has to these some thought in his mind. This could happen. There's a lot of the injuries that he sustained in the re aggravations of his ankle. Camera being You know they've come from from pressure up front front. He's gotten his legs caught on his offense of Liming because they're getting walked back into him and all that stuff so I don't think I I don't think the statement today necessarily mashes everything we've seen on tape. The problem is the interior offensive. Line isn't playing good like it's not like he doesn't have any reason not to be nervous about them and they're they're going up against the team that is going to do everything they can to attack the interior offensive line with twists and stunts. Upfront Front. It's going to be aggressive in. Its they've gotta figure some things out this week. The defense needs to keep it up and the offense needs to clean it up and we'll see if that happens on Sunday against the New England patriots when we come back. We'll talk about Brendan Daily Week and Brady versus mahomes three. That's next on Arrowhead. Pride Radio Arrowhead Pride Radio so I gotta go. What did you make? Am I looking at the new starting point guard. I got cut all my friends. Make the team though. I'M GONNA have formal all season saw and I'm so sorry you know I've been in your shoes before. Yeah Houston as all my favorite. NBA Games the had so much foam motoo but then I switched to direct TV and they also gave me this this season of NBA League. Pass now I can watch the NBA.

Pride radio presented by village. West discount liquors tall building up to chiefs and Patriots. This so this is the game. Can't win the schedule comes out. I mean everyone is circling this one. So the weakest finally here but there's one person in Kansas City who probably circled it in a highlighter in bold faced print in different colors maybe a rainbow and it's a man named Brendan Daily. Oh you don't remember me. Refresh Brendan Daly was a defensive assistant for the Patriots in twenty fourteen then the Patriots Defensive Line coach from two thousand fifteen to two thousand eighteen this past year when the Patriots Defensive Coordinator Role opened up Florida. Miami Bell check originally went Graciano So daily whose his wife happens to have roots in Kansas City left For Steve Spagnolo and the chiefs szanto eventually resigned and some thought maybe bell check would did reach back out to daily and say. I'm be my defensive coordinator. Didn't didn't wind up happening. And so you had a situation where daily daily just as now continued to be what is called the run game coordinator which I usually just a title and Defensive Line Coach for the Kansas City chiefs so today in the locker occur. We asked Derek Naughty about what has become Renton daily. This is what I'll think about this Monday morning. I woke awesome. Is this game this week. Are you walked in say. Let's let's who knows backstory. I'll they could you tell us every week so I feel you really WanNa tell him knowing the atmosphere inside and now he knows he has good detail do. Here's a good idea what to expect from offices opposite side and no one being around often live for a long time you know the take so he knows some things that obviously we don't know being around those I feel like this week is a great week feeling amongst our ozzy. I wanted to win win but at the same time in their buy in in that room is is our segment so we were really trying to fight for each other. We'll win for each other. He's part of the room. He's probably win. If I'm understanding this correctly reckless Brennan daily as walked in every week and asked the line as a joke. It sounds like do you. Guys want to know the backstory of the New England patriots. So if you don't think he's not thinking about at this game this is going to be one that he's GonNa WanNa get and good luck. Tom Brady well especially if he got turned down for. Potentially a Aja promotion there. I'm sure Brindell is GONNA WANNA show them what's up and grand in daily. I mean you know. We're talking about chiefs defensive coaches so not everyone is familiar with all the is under spags. But he's an intense yet human being I mean he looks like a man that wants to eat you. And here's a quote. I pulled this quote from Steve Spagnolo Solo from back in May when the staff was coming together the year was coming together. Brennan went up there and learn from one of the best if not the best coach in football coach. Spell checks said SPAGNOLO. He's brought a lot of that here. I pick his brain. You know what would have done here. So it's nice to have a good resource to go to so really fun. Storyline underlying all the players. And radium home so yeah no no doubt about it. And I'm kind of curious to see how valuable some of that information mation winds up being to this football team. I think one of the things I was curious about curious about when he first got here in during the offseason during the summer is you know not just on the gnarliest on the you know the defensive side of things but like I'm curious if him and Patrick mahomes sat down or him in Patch Adams andrine say. Hey look this is what we wanted to do against you that these are the things that we saw from you that we were going to try to take away. These are the pressure looks that we thought we could get you on. These are the the things that were worried about so I just wonder if some of that stuff in some of those things that they can lean on from him in this situation actually wind up helping them today and and in maybe even in January if they have to play again so that is interesting to me. What's fun is I believe? We're getting brandon. Daily Tamar Thursday we will get get daily and a couple of assistant coaches so look for that on Arrowhead Pride Dot com some other news along the defensive line and we missed this because we're beginning the show but the chiefs have designated Xavier Williams to return potentially. That's Kinda surprising. I personally thought that he was one of the players players that was done for the season. Yeah I mean I it might just be partially that. They don't really have a ton of people that they feel. Great about bringing back either like I. I don't think this moves the needle for either. Maybe what you're saying 'cause now so if he starts practicing the chiefs have three week activate them or season right and I don't know how many other sounds like Emanuel business is not coming back and a lot of the guys outside of him or guys that were put on the I. R. Before the season started so I mean he he he there's no point not bringing him back at this point point potentially what you got and see what you got for three weeks. See what's going on. He's an experienced guy. He's been part of the system for a long time. And you never know like that's the so. You don't know what's going to happen in the next two or three weeks. If one of their other another lineman goes down. You've seen how these teams had to kind of piecemeal things together along the interior anyway. So there you have it. That's our defensive line talk I just want to get into quickly mahomes versus Brady three. This is something we've been waiting for for a long time. One of the questions I had ad for Patrick mahomes today was Brady's not playing the bass. He's what forty three forty four years old. Now this could be the last chance that you have to go against him is that may be motivating motivating you could be mahomes. Brady Brady three your last shot. I mean I've known for a while that it's not going to be the last year anytime soon. I mean he's still playing at a high level and the I mean unless he just doesn't WanNa play which I don't see I expect to see him for a at least a couple more years. I mean whenever you play play guy like this who won all these championships. You want to go out there and give your best effort of obviously and you want to try to find a way to win but at the same time Thomas of team. It's a team game and we're GONNA go out there and they're trying to do whatever we can to come out with a win. Can't we'll dig deeper into this. The Arrowhead Pride Tailgate one twenty five on Sunday two hours before the game right here here in six tenths sports radio but as we look at this matchup from Wednesday four. What do you expect? I think I think Tom Brady is going to bounce back. Pretty good here I really you do and I think this is a good week for him because I think that she's will struggle to deal with James White and deal with. Julian Edelman his to bed most reliable target so. I think this is a get right game for Tom. Brady I like hell. I like how you know pads just like he's never going to die. It kind of felt like that just kind of ended the back of his mind. He knows like Toms GonNA blatantly. Sixty mahomes is a big challenge for him He kind of talked a little bit today about kind of trying to manage. The you know the excitement. The energy All that kind of stuff. Because he's a little bit excitable the first couple of times and maybe Kinda felt pressure. A little bit but I think I think the Patriots are going to bring Adam and I think they're going to challenge the interior of that offensive line. He better be ready if he if he was skipping. The pocket last week is not going to work this week. Buddy I think I look at this matchup and if you can I take your chiefs phantom out of it and even if you're a patriots fan you're patriots fan mounted it. These are just to uber competitive guys who right now for the past week or so. So with Lamar Jackson and Pat Mahomes and Tom Brady struggling a little bit have been doubted. I could see them both coming into this game. And saying you forget about us Let's have a shootout on national television almost national television because of the late game that CBS protected but still everyone's is like last week with forty niners. Ravens will be on this football game. So here's what's happening COMING UP NEXT WE'RE GONNA do the around the nation and after that we'll do a live mailbag. We'll see where Kenton I will take. Your comments comments your questions if you want to. One protein house eat with the purpose text. Line six nine three zero six or tweet us at Arrowhead pride but before but I like. I said we'll go around the nation that's next on Arrowhead. Pride Radio Arrowhead Pride Radio. I found him. It's rant our friend ranches here. I don't think it counts ten and two on the year for the Patriots. Their two losses are against deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson so they need mouse to complete the trio mahomes will be aided by the defense is playing. Well here's NFL networks. Charley casserly on the chiefs defense. Hey here's what they have. They've got a chance because you don't have to shut people out. If they hold people at Twenty points probably win every game but but hey here's where they've gotten better communication Steve. SPAG knowle's does defense is built on pressure packages but it's also built on the communication to make sure people are covered up so they've gotten better in that area they've gotten more healthier the defensive line now they've got Frank Clark back now. They have Chris Jones now. They have Alex before back. That's to their best players and they've got them together gather and they didn't have them before. Charlie feels good about the chiefs defense. I mean I feel better about that. She's I don't know if I feel good yet. I mean we'll see I I. There's a lot to be excited about this. This group like this is a really bad match for the chiefs defense just flat out. Even though the Patriots haven't been playing well James White and Julian Edelman can wreck this football team. Well even in last week's game even though the defense played really well. Josh Jacobs still had his numbers. I mean he's still over a hundred hundred yards. Of course James White is completely different. I mean it's a passing threat more show James Wise. The guy you worried about out of the backfield your in about one of the linebackers having to cover hover James White run on route out of the backfield. The Patriots are one of the worst rushing football teams in the national football league. So even the inept At times times rush defense of the of the chiefs may not matter all that much because this team's not real good at running the football either You know even like the I just don't want to get to beat up about the defense because the choose just one forty nine. They dominated that football. Game and the raiders ran the football. Like wh the. What's the big deal? Can I tell you something I asked. It's Wednesday. I'm only imagine my energy when twenty-five Sunday the Arrowhead Pride Tailgate as driven by aristocrat motors. I'm excited for it. So we'll be back with them but before we close up shop it's time for the. AP Live Mail bag. How much sure of a swing do you think the spread will go up and down from plus three for the chiefs? I don't think it's GonNa Change all that much. I think it's going to stay pretty steady And I think the chiefs will be underdogs bold prediction chiefs win thirty one. Seventeen with a pick six by Charteris war that would be kind of poetic since he had an interception taken away from him in the AFC championship. It gave thanks to Ford even though we couldn't beat Tennessee on the road. Do you think we can beat New England on the road. Yeah they can beat New England on the road they should have beat the titans. Titans Bhai thirty points so yes they can do it and they gotta play their best football and I hope they titans was anything that can go wrong. We'll go at the in our friend Nick. Envy panel will steal Brady sold this weekend. He's GonNa come screaming through the PAT. So line like grease lightning. The dude is is a cheap code. The dude is a game-breaker Tony Michelle James White Straight. GonNa either pants. When they see his game and the panel come I think this is a Mike? Pinault L.. Revenge game to this is former new. England Patriot might panel. I got released this year by them. So I mean don't sleep on the on the Mike Panel Revenge Game Hear Me Out McColl Hartman will explode in the playoffs. When everyone is getting double team they will leave single coverage on mahomes? I'm sorry McColl is my theory crazy. I just feel like he's been underutilized. I'm waiting for the next time. Call Hartman does good against press coverage will be the first time. So let's just see if he can go. If you can get uncovered this week. This is a big test for him against a tough physical man coverage if he can get free from that yeah he could be an explosive awesome player in really scare. Some defense is a new dimension loves the nickname jet right now. He's a little bit more inspector gadget when you say absolutely and that's a really good transition. Their cook go vertical threat down the field in place. Behind the line of scrimmage. That's what he's good at right. Now as Stacee says why have the chiefs play calls been so blandly I I think it's a little bit of everything I think they were a little bit Timid to try to do too much in establish ticket with the field. I think they're trying to keep you know tyreek hill fresh but some of the shifts chiefs emotions because he's a guy that they move around a lot and they have a lot of success with him around I don't think Andy's been on his game. I I kind of wonder if some of that is maybe a little bit of timidity from the homes the cast should I care about Xavier Williams possible return at the answers now era to kind of answered that what can mahomes due to get back to envy Deepak for him I think if he just gets a little bit more of a rhythm a little bit more confidence in what. He's seeing front little bit more trust in his offensive line. Things are going to be turned around really quickly. They're going to be just fine. Andy Indy will help them eventually. Here's from captain. Corbin Richard The ten yard. Lob Pass to Travis Kelsey was terrible throw the ten yard lob pass was one. I don't know as you think of the Sammy. Watkins Pass where he can't be talking about the one where he was fallen back and hit him right in the middle of the field. Oh maybe maybe that was. Is it as a fine play. That was that was a calculated risk. Mahomes is capable of executing it and most other quarterbacks in the world cares a good question that I like is signing Spencer. This or we're just going to be. Cj Speller two point zero. He just keeps getting put on that you know. I wouldn't be surprised if it's kind of like hey spencer come here to help us in pass protection for for a couple of weeks. But if Spencer where proves himself capable in pass protection they are going to be just fine and he'll he'll have a job for the remainder of the season. These show the whole playbook this weekend in New England or you just take a road lawson save for the playoffs. This was something I asked Andy Reid and he basically was like. There's enough variety to try to win this football game. I do think you save. Probably some of your best stuff if the Games in hand their pace Jason themselves they're gonNa hold some stuff back during the postseason or during the regular season but they'll they'll they'll do enough and they'll have enough creativity out there that you know they'll they'll be fine. They'll we'll be able to do it. Ban asked the DT gets up from the NFL. One hundred list absolutely yeah. That's that's ridiculous. Now that's ridiculous and I agree an egregious mistake by the NFL. I'm a little salted about that. One on bureau the more questions about Xavier Williams very quickly as we close down the show Dusty like it's coming up next how much Williams helped the run defense. If he returns I mean he he's not been like an overly impressive players two years here he knows the system. I think that's valuable so if something happens they need they need some. You'll depth. He'll he'll be there. Don Julio asked when's anti-gay released plays he's been holding. I'm ready for the PAT lane. Where's the index of Pat Pat? Plagues haven't seen him yet. Want to want to thank Chris Out For joining US Chris Bruno. Sarah always does a good job. She and Patriots Week. We'll have you covered at arrowhead. Pride Dot Com all week again.

"This is fantasy football today from CBS. Sports your email us at fantasy football ed. CBS I dot Com it is time to dominate your fantasy league of seventeen. Not Nobody's playing. Well I'm playing. He'd Cummins Mike McClure playing playing some. I'm definitely played cannot not get enough of the late season action. It's going to be a lot of fun playing a lot of guys that I never thought I would ever put in the US lineup for actual American Dollars College by. We're going to do it this weekend. It's GonNa be a lot of fun we have an actual section called the replacements. So you'll get to talk about all of those guys in that section. Let's start with the big news. There are a few things that have come out for sure so the Ravens are resting their starters. We're not expecting Lamar Jackson. Play Mark Ingram is not going to play. We don't think Mark Andrews Andrews or Marquees Brown is going to play. You should probably just avoid any raven that you've ever considered before this week. Vikings and rams could could be a very similar situation. We've already heard that delvin cooks likely not gonNA play. I cannot imagine Alexander medicines going to play Kirk. Cousins is most likely not going to play. I don't know about the wide receivers but I'm not going to play them even if they do play rams going to rest players who are dealing with injuries. Jalen Ramsey is the the only name that we've received but I'm kind of thinking golfing girly could be in doubt I wouldn't. You're not playing golf or early ninety. Yeah passed this week pressure. There's there's no way you're getting. And then the the one that is the most frustrating so far the Houston Texans because they could legitimately be the slate breakers bill. O'Brien has over and over told us that they are going to play this game to win. They will know before their game starts if their game means anything because if the chiefs win then they're the four seed and nothing or the nothing they do matters. I can't Take Bill O.. Rien his word. Yeah it's a little fishy there It's unfortunate because if they do play play at full strength like deandre Hopkins someone you can consider playing just because there's so much value out there you can pay up for 'em treat him like Micheal Thomas and some of the other studs on the slate So I'm GonNa take a wait and see approach and see if we we might get some more definitive news on that maybe Sunday morning for example right and I think like it's going to be interesting because there are so many four thirty games with uncertainty right now We may not know if Josh Jacobs could this plane we may not know if Leonard Fournette is playing we do know we do know right before we started recording. We got confirmation. That Jacobs will will not play this week. Well done Mike. Excellent in Kirk cousins has been ruled out already. I knew her cousins. Had I had not yet seen Josh Jacobs. They came straight from F. F.. CBS Sports H. Q.. And on the walk across that changed so good so the Andre Washington absolutely one hundred percent. Let's get to the replacements. Andre Washington is a replacement but who are the replacements that you're playing this week the guys that you never thought you'd be considering during India's all one I think it's going to be miles boykin for me. I think I'm going to end up. Playing some miles Boykin draftkings. He's Bare Minimum Three K. So with that. That means I'm expecting Marcus Brown to not play in this game. Is We talked about Moammar playing Robert. Griffin's going to be the quarterback so I'll definitely have a little bit their mouths Boykin. I also Japan Wednesday. I don't know if we can call that a replacement or not Super cheap on draftkings as well Right now that's where I'm at with those two plus Washington. Those are the three that I've got the most interesting. My my favorite on draftkings in probably fan duel to is Hayden. I just because I think he's more likely to play that Mark Andrews Roll like. I don't even know how much nick boils going to play. But even if it's hearst and boil I would expect hearst I be the downfield tight end and I think the rubber Griffin the third is going to have a little bit of success in this game. I agree with you. I like that. We're kind of on the same page there in that we both want to target target a pass catcher in that Raven Situation See I'm with you there. I think Robert Driven third is a viable quarterback on drafting this week One other thing I missed in the news Terry maclaurin has been ruled out stoves even sims. I believe a scored three touchdowns in his past two games. I said earlier today the I would actually prefer to play Kelvin Harmon. I think because people are going to play sims and he doesn't have any floor at all and Harmon has the better pedigree the lower price. We'll have no ownership. Yeah if I was going to attack that situation I would take harmon. He's thirty nine hundred Simpson's forty seven hundred ob op still going to be difficult for me to get there over. Boykin Bare Minimum Three K.. Lights yet if I had if I wanted to play one of the Washington guys on the other side of in Dallas is obviously it must win game there Gabby Harmon Sims is six K.. On Faneuil Hall Pat Progressive Hard Pass. Let's talk about Vegas a little bit. The top implied totals in these numbers have swung wildly since the start of the. They've probably swung wildly in the last hour. Since I pull these numbers up this is what I have the Patriots by far the biggest number on this late thirty and a half or their implied total then the saints at Twenty nine point seven five the rams at twenty eight. I would expect that number to fall quickly. If you could bet the under on the Rams Twenty eight I would take that in a heartbeat. The packers and cowboys both at twenty seven point. Seven five and the chiefs at Twenty six point seven five. I think we should talk about the Patriots because it's not too often that a team has the highest number on the slate and I'm not really considering that many of their players DFS purposes. And that's how I feel about the Patriots right now. I'm probably going to play a brady lineup or two but other than that. I'm really lukewarm on them. Definitely it's just so. They're so good at distributing the scoring and in our purposes the fantasy points and kind of whatever. The other team is going to allow them to do so. Yeah it's never something you feel super comfortable with when you're locking patriots to your lineups so I'm in the same boat with you there. Tom Brady rates is a top three value quarterback on draftkings. This week At this point we'll see what happens with some of the you know when we run with some of quarterbacks likely setting so I'll probably have one Tom Brady lineup out on my Tan. Dan But I I certainly won't be loading up on him and playing them even in cash games even though they have the highest team total on sleet and there are four or five teams james with number below seventeen. I think you can probably stay away from these offenses except for one player is what I would say. The four offenses are the panthers Washington when the Lions and the dolphins and you can't you can't fade Christian McCaffrey. Although last week seventeen he crushed anyone who played by we playing one series. He's two hundred sixteen yards away from breaking David. Johnson's total yards record. I think he's sixty seven receiving yards away from one thousand one thousand season and the panthers have said. We're not holding back on Christian McCaffrey. He's priced too high. But I'll probably play a couple of laughs with them just because it's a record breaking performance. Yeah look I honestly. I think it's probably GONNA end up as a record breaking performance. I think that you know they verbally said they're committed to letting him try to get this. That literally could mean thirty. Plus touches in this game Literally might be three yard passes. I see a lot of that on. Oh that's good news anchor playing on draftkings. I do expect them that double digit receptions in this game so I will be playing some Christian McCaffrey. Fortunately we have value out there like like I've already mentioned Boykin This is a lot of value out there. So it's very it's not as prohibitive. Is it normally would be at that salary. So yeah play Christian McCaffrey for sure. I'm I'm not really interested in any of the the other guys though from Washington. Detroit or Miami. Let's just get right to the positions who is your top cash game. Game Play on draft kings at the quarterback position. I'm going to be a lot like you heard rummy last week I'm playing Carson once again a lot I'm writing this Z.. Eagles team I think they're gonNA come out there and half the play while again. Obviously so I'm going there. I have a little bit of back. I have a little bit of Mahomes Really GonNa depend on value as the week shakes out. But if I sort my a model here by value and going to get Wentz Brady Prescott Prescott and then Shawn Watson Patch homes are right there together Knots again. Assuming the Shawn Watson is actually going to try to win this game yet. I think on draft RAFF kings. It's pretty easy. Because Carson wentz sixty one hundred actually cheaper than Daniel Jones eight hundred dollars less than Aaron Rodgers who's given us one week in the past is two months is just not much question on faneuil. It's a little bit more difficult. I still think Winston is probably my favorite value if Zacharias plays if if Earth's is out I would lean towards Brady as the top cash game. Play he is one hundred dollars cheaper than hurts and I will like Brady more than than wince. If there's no words yeah I will definitely on Fan duel all want to have available draftkings. I'm probably GONNA play wins either way. Yup Yup top. Maybe Greg Ward or no handcuffs. Just kind of depends on the I I like. I like that wince ward got hurts. Let's just full on stack. Find a giant or to the problem with the giants. Pass catchers when you talk about it more when we get to wide receiver. But I think if I'm guessing. This is your favorite favorite game to stack the eagles and the giants. It's my favorite game to stack for sure. you know a weekly basis which of the three giants wide receivers. There's going to be the right answer. Yeah I I like what I've seen from sterling shepherd the cently so you know initially if we're going to stack that up it would definitely be stolen Sheppard v Party number one for sure. Slayton is the cheapest of the three and I do think has the most one play upside ed so I will have a little bit of Darius Slayton in my Carson Wentz lineups. I'll have a little bit of Golden State. I'll have a little bit of Sterling Shepherd who's your favorite Your a favorite stack besides eagles besides the eagles after that. I probably like probably play some homes. Travis CALC- I think it's GonNa me a really good spot to take advantage of that that duo again Because I think we all KINDA WANNA play Erz. I think there's going to be another tight end we're GONNA talk about. This can be pretty popular as well. If it's happens to sit dot it's going to be significantly higher ownership they're like I don't think a lot of people are going to end up on Travis Kelsey this week I got home in that top five value over also once again for me. It's going to be mahomes Travis. Kelsey favorites stack outside of the eagles. Yeah I think my favorite will likely Matt Ryan and Julio Jones There's enough value available on this slate just play those two over the last two weeks Ryan knows. They don't have anything to play for us. Let's just see much can get Julio. I mean he's just thirty five targets in his last two games. Julio's my number one wide receiver on the slate. And he's still significantly cheaper than Michael. Thomas on Fan Duel Eighty five hundred for Julio Ninety two hundred for Michael Thomas so I'll play that Ryan. Julio Stack running back. Who is your top cash game play? I'm have a lot of Alvin Kamara but now that Washington looks like he's going to be the play I think that I'M GONNA end end up with a time of Washington. The raiders as well at this point. I'm so glad that you said you can have a ton of Alvin Kamara. But his he to me looks like one of the top plays on the slate. Regardless of which site. You're playing on the touchdown thing is flu. Like it's not going to go back to where it was before her because the first two years of his career Alvin Kamara put up numbers that we pretty much knew he couldn't duplicate. The first year was his rushing efficiency and his is yards per catch. And no one. Does that came back to Earth. Last year the touchdowns were ridiculous. Matic and Juliet like twenty or something. That's one the complete opposite way this season season. But he's still getting significant work in both the run game and the past game and he's facing one of the worst defenses in the NFL. This Carolina team can't tackle at all whole huge opportunity for big plays for him and he's just seventy nine hundred on fondue. I think. Seventy eight hundred draftkings where it's full point. PBR He is. It's like most of my lineup's I suspect would just have Alvin Kamara and the Andre Washington definitely so I just ran it again at it as we're talking here When I run twenty lineups and draftkings I have one hundred percent exposure to Kamara hundred percent? Julio Jones so those guys are definitely going to be uh uh staples so what. We're talking about running backs. I find it really hard to not lay albemarle suit now. I don't know I guess the the Kamara Saints Stack works up pretty well. If you want to correlate your defense with your running back because will greer is going to turn the ball over. It's not my favorite though. Think my favorites is going to be Damian Williams and the chiefs defense with Spencer ware put on I. R I expect a few more touches for Williams. I wouldn't be surprised if they give the Shawn McCoy one more week off before the playoffs. They've been very very we care for with him. So I think the Damien Williams chiefs stack. I like quite a bit. Yeah I'm with you there on that. I like cheap stack. Allot another running back defense stack. That will probably end up. Having spent Sandal Leonard Fournette in Jaguars. Both in my I take so little too cheap definitely Jaguars. Thirty four hundred is worth of wire tournaments If you want to correlate that with winner for that yeah I like it a lot and I I plan on playing a bunch of four net. If he could just get to practice he did not practice on Thursday. I have not seen yet if he practiced on Wednesday or on on Friday if he if he doesn't practice at all this week it's going to be hard to trust him on Sunday especially in a four thirty game again. I think it's one of those situations where you might just want to plan on at three PM. Being ready. To make a bunch of swamps. Yes a actor playing some of those players like that especially if he doesn't practice Definitely have have a backup plan where you're going to be pivoting to some other players should definitely be prepared Blah well and the and the really interesting part of that is a we talked about the replacements and D Andre Washington's a great value even at sixty three hundred but he's GonNa share with Jaylen resort if litter for net for some reason can't play Reichel Armstead is getting twenty five inches and he's forty five hundred on fan duel. That's that's going to change. Thanks for sure so again again. Another opportunity where those hopefully we get a lot of information Sunday morning. We Need Adam Schefter and do their best work. But that armistead Jacksonville Stack could be ridiculous. So I think we've probably made it clear that our top cash game play wide receiver. Julio Jones. Yeah I mean I'm still gonNA play a lot of Michael comments as well just because I have the ability to do so with all this value popping up light Yeah I would say kills buying getting too. I saw Michael Thomas projected slightly higher. Julio's The guy will certainly have a hundred exposure to and the talk about all of that value. Is Greg Ward your favorites cheap wide receiver. Andre Kings I know he's cheaper draftkings fifty six hundred on Fan Dole. which isn't isn't quite as cheap as I'd like to see? Yeah it's not as cheap as I wanted to be His father's favorite value for me. Right now it's von Whims and it's going to be miles boy. I models are very high on both of those guys after that MM-HMM I could maybe sack if I if I'm planning Tom Brady lineup. Some of my favorite value might be like Mohamed Sanu. I might take a flyer on that. It's probably outside the country than it'd be great word yet. I do think it'll be interesting interesting to see which of the Ravens wide receivers are going to play. Seth Roberts Willie SNEAD. I would presume SNEAD's not going to I wouldn't be surprised if we see Robertson Boykin though and so either one of them could be in play. I was just looking on Fan duel. Boykin is forty six hundred very close. The minimum I'm going to go ahead and plug him in. See if that gives me enough room to play who I WANNA play the rest of my line up his skill. See your top cash game play Titan actually no as of right now I'm probably GONNA end up with OJ. Howard at least Sandal? I I like like they're also depend on the status Zakar it's I will likely force. The Hand Cup of Winston Hurts. As long as it's good to go I thought it would probably be Gutter Chelsea's in that mix. I don't think a lot of people are gonNA play Travis Kelsey this week. So that's why he's kind of my one of my favorite snacks but not necessarily the lock in cash games See how it's going to be a combination of earth's Howard and Kelsey just depending ending on who's active and ultimately which quarterback up with her and I do like I a lot at forty seven hundred cowards fifty five on fan duel. That's absolutely without a doubt underpriced. He's been super disappointing. But I'm just going to go right back to him. WHO's your? WHO's your favorite punch at the imposition? Probably GONNA be Goddard. I guess Or if I if I wanted to roll with hers Yep just cap on how much news we get out of Baltimore when we get it as far as WHO's playing But I do want Baltimore Pass catching so if I'm looking for value. Probably the hearse. That's going to be a really interesting game with the Ravens. Kinda they're still going to be Pittsbur- but the thing that makes it really interesting is on Fan duel. Pittsburgh's defense is priced as if they are facing the regular Baltimore Ravens offense. There are thirty five hundred hundred on Fan duel and I still think Robert Griffin has some success. But I don't know how you pass up one of the best defenses in the league so far this year. You're against an offense full of backups. That's that's really really good point there yet to be that's something to consider in my And some of my stuff I might and tournament applying lineups with the defense and one pass catcher against my parents this week which is weird. Feeling that that's not that it's not like you're playing Hang Robert Griffin and the defense or Mark Ingram and the defense I you can see very easily away at which the Pittsburgh Defense has success getting after. Rg Reggie three turning getting a couple of turnovers and then miles boykin has a huge fourth quarter and it works out. Oh yeah definitely now. It's something I will likely Egli considering when I'm optimizing off sugar. Change some of the settings to make sure I can allow that to happen all right. Let's get weird and listen. There's nothing more weird than week seventeen. We've been kind of weird some of the names we've already said let's get really weird. I'll get started through. Lock is over seven thousand dollars at seems like it's too expensive. I'M GONNA play seventy one hundred at home against the raiders. The most raiders thing ever and been Gretch said at this morning on podcast night. I'm convinced now it's going to happen. The most raiders thing ever would be for the steelers to lose the titans to lose the colts to win in the raiders to lose and everybody else does what they knew. The raiders into the playoffs and the broncos. Just smack them around anyway way. I see that Are you sure you don't WanNa Mention Gardner. I'm going to image. Everyone just knows that. At this point okay. AH YOU'RE GONNA play Gardner Michio. I not going to play. I will say he does sneak his way. He's like the number six overall value of quarterback though so he is climbing the climbing his way up as he remains fifty. Three hundred on Nice how weird is there anybody. Is that the weirdest you would get a quarterback gives you know getting weird. I'm getting over here David. Wow Yeah. That's that's something that might it happen. I failed to mention a mere of Dula early. I like Amir Beulah. That's how that's how you're getting running back perfect. Yes yes I'M GONNA I'M GONNA I'M GONNA lead off the. Let's get weird at running back. We're going to get weird at quarterback running back with that little stack or playing each one of those guys individually. We're talking talk in Detroit. Lions here David Plow Amir of Dula. I like both of them. I think there are scenarios in which both of them can score fifteen to twenty fantasy points former Detroit Lion Dula. Currently running is currently ruining my boone. And that's how I'm getting weird. There is nothing nothing that would be more twenty nineteen than for Mike Boon a week after he crushed teams in the fantasy championship to play against a bears team with all of his backup offensive lineman and run for one hundred and twenty yards and two touchdowns priced at sixty two hundred on fan will. No one should play him at that. That price is one hundred dollars less than the Andre Washington and that Mike sounds exactly like the way. You WanNa get weird that yes. I'm going to get weird like that in one lineup. It's well that's almost definitely going to happen. Twitter will be tell. It's going to be amazing because I'm going to have a pizza. Yes absolutely absolutely. Can you get any weirder than we already have at wide receiver. Not Re focus plenty weird. I mean look if you I wanNA get continuing with the theme play Gandola Param while I think that that's that's going to be pretty weird lineup Yeah that's about as weird as I'm getting on top of the value wide receivers have already given you there. I liked that a lot. I I'll just stick Dick with Kelvin harmon because I do think Sims is going to turn into a semi popular punt play on draft kings at least on Fan duel races six thousand. He probably won't harm in his fifty two hundred hundred on Fan duel. I'm definitely going to have some of him. We've already talked about tight end. It's Hayden hearst for me. You're probably I would say. OJ Howard's about that is weird is you're getting in some people with his production. Recently would call that weird. I've got a lineup here that I've put together during the show. Should I just give it out. I think you shut. WHO's the quarterback you'll never guess Carson Wentz Carson Wentz? Okay I love it. The running backs are Alvin. Kamara Andre Washington. I think he liked that. The wide receivers are Julio Jones. Michael Thomas and Miles Boykin decent. The tight end is Oj. Howard yes the flex is Damian Williams and the Deif defense you can listen? I'll I'll give you the choice. Choose your own adventure because there is enough money here to play the chiefs defense with Damian Williams and get that correlation there if you want to. I think I'm probably going to just leave. Four hundred on the table and play the Pittsburgh steelers thirty five hundred against Robert Griffin the third. Okay and you got waking in there. I like that If you wanted AH tournament I would go play Pittsburgh if that was a cash name. I'd probably take the correlation with the chiefs defense. Yeah I think that makes it and the Nice thing is like nick. People think when I'm playing a tournament lineup I've got to be controlling everywhere. No Julio Jones Michael Thomas Carson Wentz. They're going to be very high owned and that's perfectly fine line because no one is going to have miles boykin. OJ Howard Pittsburgh steelers Combo. Nobody so those three hits the the rest of chalk hits we make all the money Mike and it's a great way to end the twenty thousand season all of the mind. We're GONNA win all the money here in this this week Senator and I think I'm done I think you're done I think it's time go make some fan duel and draftkings lineups and enjoy. Enjoy the weekend. We will not be back next week for playoffs. DFS Or at least I will not because I'm out for the next two weeks. Maybe there'll be something that POPs up if you tell Adam. Can you really want to hear more from Mike during the playoffs. But thanks for listening and we'll talk to you.

We ain't going nowhere. We can't be stopped now. 'cause we're the fantasy fees for life. Yes let's do it all right. Joe Will Start episode number two with a little west coast. Ball the raiders at the chargers. Hey big a big big dominant performance last week. Four Minnesota against the chargers it was just a bad game and Philip rivers after looking pretty good for a couple of weeks really well it. It really caught up to a three interceptions. He was just floating the ball down the field. I'm not really sure. What the hell he was doing and Melvin? Gordon fumbled twice a really just is a bad showing however against the raiders team that has been officially eliminated from the playoffs. They close the black hole with a terrible loss to the Jaguars I m star ordering everybody. Mike Williams Keenan Allen Hunter Henry. Obviously and Gordon Alan and Williams are going to be in my my top twenty five at wide receiver Henry despite the bad game last week just to catch a fumble. I am putting him back in my line. Up Against the raiders and the backs. I think he's you still have to roll with them even though I might feel a little bit better about Ecuador this week because the Melvin. Gordon's fumbled troubles. I'm playing all those guys against Oakland. I think the chargers chargers rebound a little bit here even though these are teams drawing dead nothing to play for on either side and then what about on the raiders side. Yeah Josh Jacobs you've got to roll with them. They said they're not shutting him down. He had over one hundred yards from. Scrimmage I'm going with what worked I am playing Josh Jacobs. I employing Darren Waller for obvious reasons and Tyrel Williams I think is a wide receiver for this is a really simple fantasy team right now. All the raiders. Don't have a lot of weapons. Just keep an did I on Josh Jacob Status Throughout the week. Lions at the broncos wild. We are recording this Joe. Ten minutes ago the Lions announced Bob Quinn Matt Patricia. Both will return next year. The question becomes uh-huh. How long can you go keeping a mediocre coach but also also flip flip side? How long does it take for something like this? To be turned around. The lions were dead in the water soon as Matthew Stafford got her now. I think I think they had lost some close games before for them but Stafford was playing really really good football. They go to driscoll who I think could have kept him afloat a couple more weeks. He gets her. David Loud. Doesn't have it so I mean I understand it. This is actually a pretty talented roster. They carry on Johnson early in the year and there is the one thing that I think is interesting about this game. Carry Harry on Johnson's eligible to come off of I R. I wouldn't be shocked if he's going to be in some lineups in week sixteen they had the the Youngster Hills from slippery rock doc scoring two touchdowns for them last week but I mean Kerryon. Johnson is somebody. I'd consider the only other guys you can really look at though. Kenny Kenny. Golladay is going to get the shadow coverage of Chris Harris which I don't love Although the broncos have struggled I would still play Golladay as a wide receiver. Three and Danny Amendola who went for over one hundred yards last week for the lions from David Blau so I think those guys are worth considering. I consider Kerryon Johnson a low end rb three not not a fantasy team. I'm really looking to invest a ton in here in week. Sixteen with David at quarterback. It's really not pretty for them. What about the other side for the Broncos was you? How much do you take if anything from the snow game? Not really a whole lot. I thought it was good that that drew lock played in some adversity. But that's a tough spot on the road in a driving snow. I don't know how much you can really take away from. What I do know is that the lions can't cover anybody right now? Darius slay has been banged banged up they give up a three touchdown to shot paramount. So I am throwing Portland Sutton back into my lineup. I love this week as a wide receiver to Philip Lindsay. He's a flex option. I really do not like this backfield at all. I think Roy screaming has been more of a wrench than anything else. Not Somebody that I'm terribly excited about is Philip Lindsay. And you have to keep an eye on the status of Noah Fan who's been dealing with hip a foot. He hurt his shoulder last week. He somebody I wanNA play against the lions if I can as a low end tight end one but you have to keep an eye on his status this week. He's banged up and they might shut him down and get them ready for the off season. So for the broncos Lanka's really the only guy I feel great about as Cortlandt Sutton cardinals are at the seahawks looking forward to your breakdown of this one. Well how about the Drake Drake Kenyan drake four touchdowns last week. And Look. He was a guy we were ranking is kind of a low end or be too high rb three. He hadn't been getting it done but the seahawks have had problems mostly in the passing game. But I kind of consider Kenyan drake this week I think given what he did. He established himself as the lead back. Obviously Nicely Christian. McCaffrey went off against the seahawks. Chris McCaffrey goes off against everybody. But they gave up catches to McCaffrey. That gave up rushing touchdowns to them. They're a little bit banged up. Defensively early I honestly think that a that Kenyan drake is going to be on the RB to radar for me so I I like Kenyan drake this week. Four the cardinals. I think Tyler Murray is a High Ryan. QB To one thing that was really good to see from. Murray against the browns last week was that he was back to running for fifty six on the ground He threw the touchdown pass is that he didn't really need to do a whole lot. It was too Dan Arnold by the way Ivy League guy. He's not but he sounds like one. He's yeah yeah he's not he's one of those. Yeah he's like one of those number. Three big white tight ends that I presume went to the Ivy League now because all of them did the valves of the world. But he's a now he caught a touchdown pass last week The Guy I can. I'm considering besides drake in Murree Christian Kirk had five targets last week. He had twenty eight yards receiving this. This is a far better match up. Then he had on the perimeter last week against Denzel Ward Ingredients and company. Seattle secondary is exploited. I actually think Christian Kirk can can. I don't want to say go off in this matchup but I do believe Christian Kirk can have a good solid game that rewards for playing him here against Seattle so so I think With the with the cars probably needing to score points I think they'll be throwing kirk did have just four for thirty seven against Seattle earlier this year but these are different teams at this point point. I am okay rolling with Christian Kirk. The Guy I just really. I'm struggling with his lawyer. Fitzgerald Larry Fitzgerald has been under. What sixty receiving yards now in eight of his last nine games? He hasn't sees only scored once in that span. He's just a wide receiver fourth. This point the the cardinals really are not a very good fantasy team. That's interesting all right. What about the other side for the seahawks? I mean they're gonNA pound Chris Carson. We know they're gonNA pound Chris Carson. I it's it's obvious they're gonNA pound Chris Carson The one thing that I would worry about is if I had decay metcalf because decay metcalfe's going to be the primary parameter receiver and. That's where Patrick. The Peterson rooms and Peterson really had been that shutdown guy until last week but he shut down Odell Beckham last week. And maybe that's a symptom of the browns to stinking but That was vintage. Patrick Peterson last week so I would worry about decay metcalf. I'M GONNA put him as low end wide receiver three but because of that. I'm going to upgrade tyler. Lockett doc it who finally came back alive with eight for one twenty and a touchdown last week against Carolina. I'm upgrading him to a wide receiver. One against the slot coverage bridge of Arizona. They had recently released their slot corner so it just goes to show you that they have not been very fond of it. I know what happened with Jarvis Landry but I think that one we can much more chalk up the browns being a mess so tyler Lockett wide receiver. One decay metcalf member. Josh Gordon's suspended again. Low End wide receiver. Three Chris. Carson is a hammer rb one and I think Russell Wilson is a solid. QB One would like to see him run more but he threw the ball very efficiently against Carolina Twentieth. twenty-six Threw for two touchdowns touchdowns would like to see him run more but I think he's a solid. QB One during this match up with Arizona. It's the eagles. It's the cowboys and I need to know what you got on this huge game for those two teams. I have zero confidence in either of these teams names which makes it so hard to breakdown from fantasy perspective because I just like I think both of them have shown they can beat anybody and they can lose I anybody and especially the Eagles Eagles show making lose to anybody but the cowboys I mean. They've lost to the jets. They've lost some bad games too. So here's here's the thing that I'm and most confident. I am most confident that Dallas is passing game will have success because the eagles just below coverages every week Ronald. It'll Darby's bagged up jalen. I like but he can't run. It's it's it's a tough match-up for them. And I think the cowboys receivers numbers are GonNa want to try to get back on track. Given how badly they struggled last week. I'm talking COBB and COBB struggle to but Cooper N. Gallop both Struggled badly they each had only one catch against the rams. I'm predicting bounce back. Games for both Cooper and Gallup. I'd ranked cooper as a wide receiver. One and Gallup as a wide receiver to Air Argo. I think Dak Prescott. You gotTa Roll with this week. The Philadelphia Made Twain Haskins look like Dan Marino last week. So they aren't home. They're better at home. But just keep in mind you you know Dak.. Prescott provides a much bigger challenge than say ally. Manning did two weeks ago and they still gave up points to ally in the first half so I'm going with Dak Prescott as a QB one. And you're obviously playing Zeke. Each and every week even though the eagles run defense has been good. Zeke has phenomenal numbers in his career against the eagles. You are starting him. I I feel more confident in Dallas. Offense doesn't mean they can't lay an egg but I just think they are strong at the positions where the eagles the weakest on the other side. What about the eagles? You Got Malcolm Sanders. What else mile? Sanders was Matt Miles Fan. I guess yeah I mean. He's League winner He's been he's really emerged. As matter of fact I I saw the that. He is officially the most successful rookie in eagles. History in terms of yards from scrimmage that that that beats is that beats any running back beats with Shawn McCoy beach. Brian Westbrook. It beats to Sean Jackson. Any of these rookies that the eagles have had in recent years tells you what kind of year he's had. You have to start him. He is a borderline underline. Rb One right now. We'll see about a Jordan Howard status that would affect Boston Scott status as a flex worthy option the only wide receiver from Philadelphia. What else you can play at this? Point is Greg Ward and I am stunned how these eagles who have had wide receiver problems all all year even when guys were healthy which hasn't been much of the year but even when alarm. Jeffrey were healthy. They didn't have anybody could run. You know guys were dropping passes. They had this Guy Ward in their building all season long and didn't know what he could do Carson Wentz stone him eighteen targets the last two weeks. So let's trust them. He caught the game winning touchdown pass or white sides out there running into people so I don't know what the eagles scouting books it's like it wide receiver. But they need to completely tear it down and rebuild it because they missed on our thankful whiteside for now for now. He is a rookie. They completely miss evaluated the position in house. So I don't know what's going on but Greg Ward to to get back to. The point is a wide receiver. Three worthy play because wentz throw them the ball. You're obviously playings accurate. There's no doubt about that. Dallas Qatar has consistently been a low end tight end one. You can consider made a spectacular catch at the end of that game. And that's something we've been asking for. The Eagles need some receivers to make place for their quarterback. Got Hurt made one for his quarterback ward made one for his quarterback Mile Sanders made one for his quarterback. And it's the young young guys who are stepping up for Philadelphia. So those are the guys. I'm considering I consider Carson Wentz a high end. QB Too. Because I still don't love the supporting cast around around him and we need to see about Lane Johnson. The right tackle status. The Eagles were shorthanded. They're running on fumes. But finally Greg Ward. They got a young receiver. Who's given I am a little bit of life and and that's a good thing for Carson Wentz the night game it's the chiefs and the bears? Where do you get that one? Oh boy this is going to be a pretty fun one for fantasy purposes. Let's start with the bears at home. Don't love David Montgomery and a potentially a high scoring game. Although the chiefs have had a bad run defense I think Montgomery is probably a high influx. I will consider the same for Tariq Cohen who seeing a lot of targets. The the last few few weeks tweet Cohen. I would consider a high end flex where I'm focusing for Chicago. I have both Allen Robinson. Anthony Miller in a championship. Yup and I think I'm going to play them both because I think this could be a high scoring game. I love what I see from. Anthony Miller I mean this guy has been utterly fantastic. How about fifteen eighteen targets last week against Green Bay he goes for nine one eighteen and a touchdown? I am playing him over. Odell Beckham Junior in a championship chip around without hesitation. That's where I'm at with Beckham but that's where I'm at with Anthony Miller. Anthony Miller has top ten targets three of his last five games. He's top nine targets in in four of his last five games and in the game where he didn't get nine targets. He scored a touchdown so he has been a fantasy stud over the last five weeks. It's coincided with Mitchell trubisky numbers getting better it's coincided with for bisky getting more confident and honestly I know. He threw the two picks last week but he's running a little bit more Mitchell. trubisky isn't a bad. Add Stream Worthy quarterback if you're really concerned about your position I don't know who you might be playing say say maybe you've had Tom Brady. And you're like man. I just can't trust them. I'd actually play Trubisky Bisky over Tom Brady this week against Kansas City. Kansas City's defense has been playing better than people think but I do think Chicago is going to have to try to score points. And that's why I'm actually okay in investing acting in their passing game on Sunday night against Kansas City. Wow Okay what about the chiefs and the other side while the chiefs have become a really well defined fantasy team. Because there's only a few guys you can consider Travis Kelsey play without question tyreek Hill. You play without question Patrick. Mahomes you play without question. The question becomes. Who else do you consider? They're telling you what they think of their backfield. They pulled Spencer wear off the couch and he's lead their bathroom and snaps last two weeks so they don't trust the Shawn Mccoy who camping your lineup. They don't trust Darwin Thomson. Who can't be in your lineup Spencer? Ware hasn't done anything with those snaps. So he can't be in your lineup. My question is does Damian Williams return term. And if he does are you okay with playing him. I'd probably rank them as more of Affleck's Sammy Watkins. I'm sick of this guy. He he caught a two point conversion last week. Instilled in top ten points at a p PR so really. I'm looking at Kelsey Hill and homes and maybe Damian Williams if he comes back fortunately for you for fantasy Kelsey hill the homes. Those three score hell a lot of fantasy points. Yeah you got that right. They were amazing snow. What about Monday Sunday night? Let's dive into it. It's it's packers and the Vikings packer passing. Offense is like pulling teeth but I will say this. I love off Davante Adams this week. You know the I think the secret about Minnesota's secondary roads has been banged up. I know trae wings banged up earlier this year. The secondary has not been very good good from Minnesota. This is a team very dependent on the pass rush. I love Davante Adams this week. I I think he's got shot to really win some fantasy championships He had a big game last week. I know he's been more disappointed. I think he's down in the thirties and total fantasy points scored this year. Obviously he was hurt for a while but I think he's got a good shot to be very very very strong This week it's a mediocre matchup for Aaron Rodgers though and the the thing about Rogers is he doesn't have any other receivers you can trust. He throws a perfect deep ball. Marcus Marcus status gambling last week. And scanlon gator owned it. I mean he just let the ball fall. It wasn't even a drop. He pulled his hands back. They have nobody else you can trust in the passing game and the only other guy you can consider and he. Somebody definitely is Aaron Jones Aaron Jones. He's been very touchdown dependent but he seems is to score them at bunches. So Aaron Jones guy you have to play. I don't think it's a great match up by any stretch of the imagination against Minnesota this week but I don't know how you can look at this offense and say man Somebody outside of Aaron Jones. I'M GONNA Trust out there. Minnesota has in fact Ross given up the fifth most fantasy points per game to running backs over the last five weeks. So Jones Davante Adams Slam dunks Aaron Rodgers. You probably have to make a call on him in your lineup. Nobody else's worth considering for the packers and it's Kinda sad that we've gotten to that point okay and then on the other side the Minnesota. Vikings Dalvin cooks health status. Data's again in question. Yeah this is the big question of the week and and obviously it's the last team we're talking about but Dow Cook seems to think he's going to be able to play Monday night. This were recording according this on Tuesday so if Dalvin Cook Place. I don't think you have a choice. You kind of have to play them. But you have to give yourself another option. We don't know if Alexander Madison Davin cooks backup is gonNA play. He didn't play last week. So if cook and Madison don't play the backup will be Mike Boon. You are super talented kid. WHO's for for those of us who play preseason? DFS We are intimately familiar with Mike Boon The guy blows up every preseason. I don't know why he can't get carries but he got two touchdowns last week. After Cook left the game he is the guy I would be focusing on the waiver wire if Alexander Madison has already owned if if you have both cook and Madison you need to pick up Mike Boon this week you need to. I don't like I just talked about Shawn McCoy. Get rid of them. You're not playing them. Just get rid of them. Go pick pick up like boot. You need to pick them up this week if you have cooked or Madison. So he's the guy to focus on. That's the big question now. Green Bay's defense. I think has been very very problematic and last week. Mitchell trubisky did throw the two interceptions but I think this is a highly explainable defense. They gave up big lines in the secondary to both Alan Robinson Anthony Miller so stefan digs atom feeling. Both of them are in your lineups. I think kirk cousins at home is a solid fantasy option this week unfortunately with feeling back with the questions about the run game. The tight end positions kind of fallen by the wayside. So I don't think you consider either of those guys but the rest of them. Keep an eye on the backfield. We can't answer it today however feeling digs during your lineup. Up Kirk cousins the lineup. I think this is a good spot for Minnesota at home Joe. That was awesome. That was absolutely awesome. I'm ready for for some. DFS This week speaking of awesome.

AP Laboratory - An early mock draft (Ep. 103)

"What's up everybody? Thanks for joining us today. My Name's candace Watson. I want to wish you a very merry draft this the day after Christmas was this posting most likely and we are doing a little Bonus mock draft. As we've been doing the last you know couple of weeks you know sneaking a little draft contents in there getting you ready For the draft season. I hear here to help me talk about all. This is my hi dear pal. Find Him on twitter at barley hop not cray or not Matt crepe style. Hello my friend. We are doing a draft show without Matthew Lane. This is late. I'm sure I fully expecting that when this goes up. We're GONNA look and it's going to be three times as long long because Maddie's going to somehow find a way to get it from Pete and then record his companion piece which is two times longer than this I i. I'm curious to see. Liv matty goes on periscope to do a response to this entire process just this entire this entire exercise that we're about to do we're going to do a mock draft. Basically we do this thing. We do mock draft roulette because we wanNA give you guys fresh content. We WanNa give you guys ideas of how the board would position in our minds and in in pockets. You know that cheese could attack and we don't want to just be stuck in the same kind of mold because we could mock draft achieve our cornerback to the chiefs every single week and we'd feel very good about it but that's no fun so we kind of put it up to chance and we give a randomize her five positions That we think the chiefs are going to draft. Make randomize them and then we have to draft those players in that order and we'll get to that order in a second but I do want to answer a couple of questions. We got a a question when we're doing our our mailbag earlier in the week but it was draft specific thought the answer here bt. And Casey asks who are small school draft crushes so far. No one can take the same person as we've given you guys a couple of Akim. Davis gaither is one of them kindle. Ville doors one of them. But my God this week is from a division three school from Lenore Ryan University in Hickory North Carolina. His name is Kyle Duggar. He plays safety there. He is going to senior bowl. That's part of the reason why we have is on him already. He is fun to watch a senior director. Jim Nagy has this quote. That a lot of Scott's us this quote but when you're going to a division three school you shouldn't have to know what number the player you're going scout is and you don't have to know cow Doug's number. He just shows up. He is all over the place he moves what purpose. He's got strong ball skills. He really attacks catch point. well as a safety he closes downhill really well on hit super hard can cover running backs and tight ends ends. He dominated lesser competition. The problem is he may not have single high range. Use Him in a lot of split safety looks so I do think that he's he's doing this against guys that aren't necessarily great athletes or top level athletes so there has been talks. He's he's a six one to fifteen guy. There had been talks that NFL teams might look at him as a will linebacker kind of a dime linebacker often. And Oh my goodness I see it so much. This dude plays so physical. He flows to the ball so well and he he would be able to cover everything that you could ask of him in coverage he takes good angles like I'm very excited to see Kyle Duggar. I'm very excited to see if they give him a couple will reps at the senior bowl because there will be teams asking about it so I think we might get to see some of that. I am interested in picking him up maybe as a later round guide not necessarily to play safety but to be that dime linebacker role and be able to play a will for me. It's a guy that Matt he's GonNa be very disappointed. I'm talking about and it's Jeremy Chin Safety from Southern Illinois. So it's another safety. This guy probably profiles more as is a safety net than maybe doug as a will potentially but This dude he kind of falls falls under the same kind of category. You know that that Nagy was talking about you. You know who this guy is when you watch him play you can tell. He's just a step above the talent out there. Six three. He's two hundred fifteen pounds. He's a really really good athlete. He has some big splash. Plays some big hits in the secondary. He's a guy that I think ADDS a lot of flexibility this football team. You can play him in the box a little bit. You can play him in a two. I structure He's got some rain. He's got some ball skills. I'm really curious because he's another guy that's that's going to be at the senior bowl. I want to see a couple of things I want to see him in man coverage That's definitely something. I kind of want to get an idea just to see what his what his ability is is there and I just WanNa see how he holds up to the speed of the game. Because it's GonNa be a little bit different and I think that's the case with everybody. But he's an athletic profile easy really strong Out Athletic Profile. and He's a lot of fun he's he's one of those just fun prospects I mean there's there's there's those guys every year I mean listen you don't. You Bake a highlight tape of Jeremy Jeremy Chin. You're going to be giddy like you're just going to be getting watching him play football. He has so many splash. Plays as crazy. It is it's ridiculous We had another question This was a Five Star Review Question. If you liked the show feel free to to give us a five star review That's all we ask for for Christmas. This year Rostrum Casey. I appreciate your guys work in will always find the podcast inciteful. My question is what do you think of. Our biggest draft need is regarding position. Would you go with offensive line linebacker defensive back or best available out of those positions also. What's the latest latest round? You think we could Dr- grab a top five running back. He Lists Hubbard at Dobbins Taylor Swift Taylor Swift. That's a that's an and the accident connection there Is there a chance. One of those guys slips today three. I'm GonNa answer that. I know there's not a chance any of those guys slip today. Three unless there's an injury may be Chuba. Hubbard is the one that might have a chance to slip out. I would just just so you know our mock draft. You're GONNA like our mock draft because it's a scenario are you. That involves a first round running back. We're going to have a long debate about that but Craig why. Don't you answer the first question. Would you go with offensive Lineman linebacker defensive back or best player available out of all those positions. I think if all things are equal there. If you're getting a uniform player you know kind of the best at their position there. I'm going linebacker backer. Because this defensive bet group is very deep and this linebacker group while it's better than last year I think as a whole is still not not particularly strong. linebackers are becoming more and more coveted as players. You're seeing the top end. linebackers getting paid seventeen eighteen nineteen gene twenty million dollars a year. 'cause teams are figuring out. These guys are super important. Guys that can stay on the field all three downs do all this coverage ability. So they're paying them more than top-flight cornerbacks. I think that teams are just going to continue to snap up linebackers as early as possible because you just need those athletic guys to kind of be as flexible as multiple as you want to be so. I'm going to take a linebacker in that situation and Tryin Ryan address. cornerback a little bit later. Just because you're not going to be able to find a guy in free agency that has that kind of impact. Obviously we're GONNA see how free agency goes for this football team. I do think that there's a little bit of flexibility with this group. Just because I think cornerback has to be taken in the I sixty picks for this they have to they have to. They have to draft a cornerback. Early but like Craig said. There's so much Flexibility there with the cornerback position. Because I think you're going to be able to get a very quality player that world going to be happy about at the cornerback position. We're going to have all the time in the world to unpack all those guys. But that gives you a little flexibility for linebacker. Or maybe an offensive lineman. If there's a guy that they really love like you can talk me into a center you can talk me into an interior offensive linemen linemen. I think they have a little bit flexibility there to kind of navigate that situation. We'll see how how the how the free agency class goes to okay. So here's our mock draft roulette. We drew a hand. That me Craig and Matt All do not like. But that's okay because you need to protect yourself and you have these conversations. It's very good exercise. We drew running back in the first round of this draft. True let here's the order running back interior offensive lineman cornerback linebacker wide receiver. That is your five round draft raft order. WE'RE GONNA pick five players in that constraint in the first pick for the Kansas City chiefs at running back at pick twenty six at currently travis at the running back from Clemson in this scenario. Kind of run through some exercises. You could have said Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin. He's got la of of where on those tires. He's been been run through. Run into the ground Wisconsin. You could say De'andre swift and I think you know I think deandre stripped swift was a good candidate in this scenario but for us I think Travis. At and he's a guy that hasn't had a lot of doesn't have a lot of tread taking office tires. He's a big duty fits that explosive physical athletic profile that that she's Houston typically liked at the running back position and the thing that really kinda talking convinced me when we were going through this exercise with Mattias his pass catching production has improved in. That's something that's very important for him. Because there was a quote this off season that Travis and he said he was terrified to catch the football. Not Not something you want in a modern. NFL running back like just just not. But he's thirty passes this year savage lou over ten yards per catch. I like I. I liked that about him. He's a young guy limited reps in the last couple of years and I think he makes a Lotta Sense. Craig everything on that. You liked to say no you hit did it. He's explosive. He's big I think he would add another dimension to this chiefs offense that we haven't seen for a little bit and I do like that. He catches the the ball and he looks comfortable. Catching the ball this year. The comment that he made. Yeah he had caught the ball a little bit and I thought at the time it was like well all right you know a he looks he looks a lot more comfortable. Running routes coming out of the backfield being able to do things within that Clinton offense obviously Trevor Lawrence makes look very good as well but I do think that he is more than capable of being a three down back so if you had to get in the a situation where you took a running back early. I think that he's kind of that. Sweet spot in that right guy and a couple of comments on the running back situation. I think it makes it makes. It makes it a challenge. I think when you're trying to improve some areas of concern for this football team when this offense. I don't know how much how much running back is going to change the outlook offensively of this football team. I think that's the big struggle is. Because how much is this offense improving with a good running game when you're offensive line isn't great. I mean why are you putting a premium asset but in a running back when You know when there's other issues to deal with it honestly if you have a good offense line you can get away with not good running backs to they'll spend but like you don't WanNa limit the explosive playability these offense. I don't know how much it's changing the outlook of this team. If you just add a running back into the mix of a high quality obviously it's going to help but does it change it. Make it a generational offense. No I don't think that's what would make it a generational offense I think if you had another explosive wide receiver that would be massive yes or an interior offensive linemen that was particularly dominant because trevor set in is having to dodge guys in the backfield much like we. We saw against the bears this past weekend. Where Spencer ware and Damian Wills Williams were having to avoid guys immediately in their laps if you have a guy that can block a little bit better open up some gaps a little bit better? I think an average running back with a good offensive line is better than then a good running back with an average offensive line and then on top of that. You're protecting mahomes better. And he's able to stay in the pocket a little bit better. Honestly I I would take an interior offense of Lyman fifteen out of ten times over running back in this situation but this is the hand we were dealt so travis at the he ended is all right at fifty eight and around two. We were forced to draft interior offensive linemen and we got a little bit creative here. It's a guy that may or may not stick may not mean or may or may not be an interior offensive linemen when it's all said and done it's MCI Becton. He is a a massive offensive Lineman from Louisville. He turns twenty one just a couple days before the NFL draft this year. Six seven seven. Six eight three seventy three eighty. The guy is huge. Any moves really well for his size. I think that's the thing that you're drawn to. He's he's kind of a raw prospect. I think if he was going to hold up at tackle it take a little bit development. But he's got some inside outside flexibility potential because I think he he could come in and really. I think he could be a really good guard. I think he would be one of the guards. I'd be most excited about if I'm being honest because he's such a young guy he's got a lot to learn he's got a lot to work through but athletic profile. His physical profile is massive in its athletic. And that's definitely something I'm wanting to work with defined this football team. Yeah and he won the the Jacobs Blocking Trophy the ACC gives out to its best offensive lyman every year. That's what he won this year and four. I thought this was like a nick. Jacobs Buddy Nick or Buddy Dick was you know just kind of watching some tape and he decided nope. It's my blocking trophy. Here's a new award. I have just created MCI Becker. No okay he was the best guy and so he skipped his senior year to go on. I mean he's still had eligibility left so he's obviously getting some early buzz. I know that a lot of people probably haven't heard his name before but the fact that he's skipping and the fact that he's won these awards and he's got this kind of athletic profile probably going going a little bit earlier than we. All think coaches are going to want to put their hands on them get their hands on him and I don't blame them because I I'm I'm very interested in him Just just he's got a lot of things that I like easy young guys lot lot of room to develop big athletic. I mean I think they can develop this guy. Okay finally got to draft a cornerback in round three and this is it. This is a great exercise for us to go through. Because we've got got explore all these options because we could very easily naturally just pick cornerback every single time Craig. Who are we taking? We are taking Oklahoma state. CORNERBACK cornerback A.. J. Green not that. Aj Green the other AJ Green. He six warning green to. Yes sure. Let's get them both. That's fine Cincinnati's addy's not using them so we can just take him as well. He is very long he I mean he's he listed at six one but I think he's GonNa be one of those really long armed cornerbacks like they they measure him. He's very twitchy for an athlete. Very quick feet. And he's got long speed to carry guys and he really leverages his length. Well he squeezes the boundary soup or well on the outside side. They're Kinda bench. Press guys out to the outside. I will say that he is his footwork. Needs some work I said he had quick. Creeper footwork does need some work and he is very grabby. Wants to be very physical but I the funny part with him is when when you watch him. He's very aggressive. When coming downhill he'll throw himself downhill and then we'll make a very weak tackle attempt so he does all the work up to it? It just doesn't doesn't finish it. I think that's a coaching thing. I think they can get it out of him because he is a very physical player in the back in and he does like to come up and you know he still takes. It's the hit from the running back. It just doesn't necessarily wrap up so I think he's he's more of a project guy. But he's got the size speed length combination that SPEC Agnello Kinda covets out of his cornerbacks. I'd be very interested in him at this point. Because you're not going to find a lot of these traits this late and and it's very realistic for a guy like ag agreeing to be available there at ninety because of how deep this classes I mean it. It's ridiculous it's an embarrassment of riches which is at the cornerback position. I would not hate to see this team be creative agent one or two of them yeah. He's he's more like adjusting lane or or something like that. A Guy. That's a little bit more project. Only he's an actual cornerback already. He's got the skill set as a cornerback. Already but a lot of those guys in last year's draft class that we talked about that you take and you WanNa mold and kind of convert and help them along. He's ahead of those guys already as a cornerback. And he's got those traits. Okay linebacker position. Finally Craig who the chiefs taking it. Pick one twenty two in the fourth round at linebacker. Well there weren't a whole lot of guys available I didn't have any will linebackers. That really liked so. I wanted to add. Add to the Mike linebacker depth. We don't really have it Evan. Weaver out of California is going to be my guy six three. He's listed at two forty. I five right now. But reports are that he's playing closer to to thirty five this year he heard. NFL Scouts last year slimmed down a little bit to get a little quicker and it does show up about watch some tape last year. Watch them tape this year. He looks a little bit faster a little bit more explosive but my man is everywhere he hits. It's like a damn truck he he is a sneaky good block slipper he stacks and sheds. Well he just doesn't have particularly great rate long speed like that's not his game and he's not particularly good in transition either. I wouldn't expect him to be a great coverage linebacker acker by any means but he is a tackle collector. He's he's Kinda everywhere for this team all the time this year he has ninety five five tackles on this one hundred. Seventy three ninety five solo hundred. Seventy three tackles on the season hundred fifty nine last year so he he's just everywhere. He makes a lot of plays so I. I wouldn't mind adding him to play. Mike Backup Anthony Hitchens at this point in the draft. Yeah this is the guy that Craig's a pretty big fan of to this point. I think he's Kinda surprised is because we kind of you know. I think the athletic profile. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA find out over the process. I think that's one of the important things with him as you just got to see what his ethnic profile really looks like. You'll be able to find out with things like the the combine in pro days and all that stuff. It's just it's it's something curious he's done all this work to rework his body. Let's see what happens. There is one caveat here of those one hundred and seventy three tackles only ten of them were for loss so it's not like he's he's getting into the backfield making aching tons of plays and you know doing all that but he does make a lot of tackles. Here's around the ball at all times but I'll speak for matty here. He he wears a tight end number. He wears eighty nine and reportedly is wearing eighty nine at the senior bowl. Maddie Maddie hates that already. I know he's like a big big red flag for him. Yeah not making many. Plays behind the line of scrimmage. That is a trait cheese typically coveted linebacker. That's that's true. I know he might be right over the speed to. We'll see how he might. He might fit in just perfectly okay at one fifty eighty four. We're going with the receiver was who we had to draft and we're going with a receiver out of Baylor it's Denzel mims. He's a big dude. He's six three might be a little bit more than six. Three real big dude is not a guy. That's you know. Oh creating a ton of separation. I mean that's just kind of typically with you know what you get with with a lot of these receivers like that's just just a reality. The that these big receivers struggle to separate. But he's six three. He's two hundred fifteen pounds and he does some really good things at the catch point in fact he's very good at the catch point. He's pretty athletic athletic too. So there's some things to build off. There's some things that you really like and I think what you what you hope for is the chiefs are going to have a chance most likely to draft a guy on day three at the wide receiver spot. That is probably pretty good value. You know I don't WanNa he's not. I don't WanNa quit him to Jalen hurt hurt because they're different players but Jalen Hurd was a big strong athletic player. That could run the ball a little bit little bit ability after the catch which kind of a hybrid flex could you know tied in h back running back wide receiver kind of profile. I'm not trying to call him that exactly but Jalen Hurd win the second round because they were really intrigued by the athletic profile. They thought they could do a lot of things with him. In San Francisco Denzil. I don't WanNa say it's a completely like that but what I when I'm trying to say is I think lie. These really strong athletic big profile types. That maybe don't create a ton of separation but have some really strong ability at the catch point. I think those guys are GonNa fall all through the cracks this year because of the nature of this group because of the nature of the strong receiver class. I think some of these guys might fall by the wayside. debs would be a really fun ad in day three this of this draft. Oh absolutely I've heard the player comp for Dinsdale mims of Kinney Golladay over the big guy strong the catch point has is not a slow athlete. He's he's a good athlete but he doesn't necessarily early. Have the route running finesse yet as a player. I've heard that comparison. I've only watched a couple of INS L. mims games throughout this time period period. Here I do think that he he's going to be a true ex and the chiefs if they move on from Sammy. Watkins are going to need a true. You ask they don't really have that guy on the roster you could do worse with that big body winning at the catch point and you know kind of ability to develop amid round a guy. He's got the traits that you want out of that position that Andy Reid would really covet out of that position. Well that is a little mock eth- mock draft the exercise. We were randomly drawing the positions.

We'll do one at the end of July this week. We've got three winters Joe. So we'll do three this week probably three next week on the twenty-first and maybe the final four on the twenty eighth and then we'll figure out a time to start draft up put. Today's three winners. Brendan Catman. Meghan Nussbaum and Austin Barley. So Congratulations Brendan. Megan and Austin should probably tell you all my name's Ross Tucker a former NFL player five teams seven years now. I think I got five podcasts. I do over seven days. So Nice and symmetrical. Joe Mentioned Greg Cosell. We're going to continue our COSELL's concepts to morrow on the Ross. Tucker Football podcast. You can hear our week one bets. It was glorious with Steve Fezzet yesterday on the podcast. Andrew Brandt with some interesting comments about maybe even the NFL decreasing the salary cap this year. So that the decrease next year is in as bad. Joe We need to finish up the rookie draft and what it means in terms of a fantasy impact. Whether it's best ball drafts or dynasty season-long whatever couple of weeks ago. We did the quarterbacks last week we did the wide receivers today. We will do the rookie running backs. And we will start with Clyde Edwards Hilar- the only rookie running back. Who landed in round one? I thought there was a chance at a multiple guys. Go in round one just at the back end of the round but the surprised people a little bit by making Edwards alerted the first running back off the board. But you if you listen to them. Talk about him after the draft. It probably shouldn't be all that surprising. Everybody knows right now that apparently Andy Reid went to his general manager Bret feed each who was also with Andy when he was in Philadelphia and Compared Edwards. Allaire stylistically to Brian Westbrook. And he told breads thought he was a better prospect and that kind of bears out. This is the first time in Andy. Reid coached football. Team has drafted a running back in the first round and remember. Andy's been coaching being. He's been a head coach since nineteen ninety nine. This is the first time on his team's has drafted running back in the first round up. So that just goes to show you especially given the discussion about the value of the running back position. That especially tells you what the chiefs thought of this player so that is. That's phenomenal news for Edwards hilarious fantasy outlook the implications of this for fantasy. He's a great receiver. I think that's a number one for the Kansas City chiefs the Kansas City chiefs Andy. Reed's always been passed. Heavy Patrick Mahomes gives them the reason to be more past heavy than he's ever been but Clyde Edwards Allaire is a fantastic receiver. Andy Reid has always gotten great production out of the running back position dating back to do. Staley his first couple years in Philadelphia. Then Brian Westbrook will shawn McCoy. Jamaal Charles Kareem Hunt of the flashes. We saw out of Damian Williams even some Spencer ware in his time in in Kansas City. The running back position produces in Andy. Reed's offense he is fantasy friendly at that spot now. Of course they're going to say well Damian Williams is going to be involved at and you might be but you have to look at the facts. You look at the facts. The Kansas City made a luxury pick Damian Williams arguably could have been the super bowl. Mvp and they still drafted Edwards layer in the first round. This is a luxury pick for a team that is loaded. The chiefs probably didn't even need him and they still drafted him. You can argue all you want about the value of traffic but I think it's fantastic news for For fantasy value. Now take a listen to this over. The last two seasons Damian Williams has played sixty percent or more of the chiefs snaps in eleven games in those eleven games. He's averaged twenty five fantasy points per game for context Christian. Mccaffrey averaged twenty nine. Point five in his ridiculous twenty nine thousand nine season so dean Williams if you extrapolate that over the full a full sixteen games condensed into one year he would have been the RB to and they drafted Clyde Edwards to be their starting running back the chiefs understand running back value. They also understand good. Football players and Edwards layer is a good football player. I think he starts right away. I am willing to take him as early as the second round and Redraft Leagues and he is the number. One Overall. Pick in rookie dynasty drafts. Let's move on to the next back off the board and that was de'andre swift to to the lions to pair with Kerryon Johnson. This one not so great a landing spot for fantasy now and this is this is a good exercise to remember how important landing spot is because it the chiefs. May de'andre swift there pick thirty second overall and Clyde Edwards. Allaire went to the lion's at thirty fifth overall. You might you might flip them on my dynasty ranks. I currently have Edwards. Allaire one swift five at running back. It might be swift one Edwards. Allaire five if these if these landing spots switched so it looks pretty evident that Matt Patricia. Bob Quinn want to have a running back committee you remember. Even when Kerryon Johnson was a rookie and he was playing really well they kept rotate eating him. With Garrett Blunt who was doing absolutely nothing and then carry on. Johnson came out and look like a plotter in his second year. Now I think the Andrea swift the most talented running back here. I think Greg. Cosell on this very podcast. Compared him to Dalvin Cook he's playing behind the just an okay offensive line. They seem to really want to rotate them. I love them as a prospect. I think for Fantasies. Kinda BOOMER BUST PICK THIS YEAR. Maybe things change maybe carry on. Johnson can't stay healthy again. Maybe twenty twenty one. The Lions Make a coaching staff. Change and de'andre swift becomes a thirteen hundred yard back. Who can add you? Five six hundred yards receiving navy. That happens I don't think that's in the cards. This year. Aggressive fantasy players might start considering him around the seventh or eighth rounded redraft leagues. And he's still kind of first. Half of the first round rookie dynasty drafts but the landing spot is certainly not pristine here for the Andrea Swift up next Jonathan Taylor to the colts curious to get your thoughts on this one. I'm not gonNA over think this I'm GonNa look at the positives here When when we don't have anything else to talk about but the NFL draft and we're doing our best ball. Drafts are high stakes drafts. At this point you might be able to kind of twist yourself into a pretzel rationalizing four or rationalizing against certain players. And I think Jonathan Taylor is one of them because if you look at the facts Marlon Mac has gained one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine rushing yards over the last two seasons essentially a thousand yards a year. Nine hines has caught one hundred seven passes over the last two seasons so if you look at the baseline numbers running back. Didn't seem to be experience. Need for the colts. Especially if you buy into the fact that the running back position is more product of the offensive line than of the than of the players talent itself because this is a great offensive line arguably the best in the entire NFL. But then you look at the fact that the colts traded up for Jonathan Tail. They treat it up for him. They traded in front of Jacksonville. Which seems to say to me that they fear Jacksonville. Who is trying to replace? Leonard Fournette this off season wanted Jonathan Taylor. He's Co Jonathan. Taylor is a great prospect. I just an he tested out of the building in Indianapolis at the combine. Kind of funny that. That's that happened in. The colts drafted him and now he's playing behind. Philip rivers behind a great offensive line. Philip rivers is not somebody you want dropping back forty forty five times a game right now. I think he needs a sustaining run. Game behind them. He will get that with Jonathan Taylor who by the way arguably could be the most underrated receiver at his position in this class as well the the offensive line is Great. Taylor's a big back. He's got outrageous athleticism. I don't think the colts drafted Jonathan Taylor to give them five to eight carries. I don't think they drafted Jonathan Taylor to rotate him in a three-man backfield with Marla Mac. And Naim hines. That doesn't mean those guys aren't going to get some snaps here and there but I think it would be a just a horrific misuse of resources and horrific misuse of Taylor skill set if the colts pegged him as a rotational back. I think he's the one to win. Rookie drafts and I think he can go off the board as early as the third round in redrafts I think right away he is their lead back and I expect them to get fifteen or more carries per game makers to the rams interesting ahead of guys like jk Dobbin they wanted camakers to the rams in part to replace Todd Gurley well. There's a couple of schools of thought here. Do the rams no value the running back position and many would argue. They don't because of the contract to talk early and then the fact that they spent a third round pick last year on Daryl Henderson and then spent a second round. Pick this year on camakers. My other my other point here is and the other school of thought is how much they not like. Darrell Henderson because the guy was a third round pick last year they trade up to get him and then he didn't even play a hundred offensive snaps last year and then they come out and spend a second round pick on a running back arguably a position. They don't need Henderson and Malcolm Brown there. What this says to me is I think camakers at some point is going to be the rams lead back this year The thing about Henderson is there is there are reports that he struggled to pick up. The Rams Offense Sean McVeigh's offense I don't think I think the rams probably liked what they saw from camakers in that regard. He was a high school quarterback. Greg cosell on the Ross Tucker football podcast said he really saw acres understanding of fronts and how it contributed to his vision as a runner. And You wonder if that dates back to his experience as a high school quarterback reading defense is so I think the rams liked can make her cerebral style of play especially if that was an area. Daryl Henderson struggle and by the way up Florida state had a horrible offensive line. They haven't had a good offensive line in years. And the rams had a horrible offensive line last year thirty first per pro football focus so I think the the rams really liked camakers the waking ran behind that bad Florida state offensive line. They think that can translate to the La Rams so it's a nasty backfield for fantasy purposes. Because I mean frankly we still don't know anything about Daryl Anderson. He barely played last year. Do they still have him in their plants? Malcolm Brown is still there. They kind of like him. These coaches favourite but acres trades including his receiving ability. Kind of making my favorite back. Here I think he's kind of a sixth seventh round. Pick in redraft. But there's league-winning upside there. It's just the fact that you're going to have to navigate a really swampy backfield at least in the early part of the season. If you want to invest investing camakers next up still on the second round we've got JK Dobbins to the Baltimore Ravens and other one. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on it like I mean talk about just the most pristine landing spot you can possibly get on. There was some thought. Miami was enamored with Auburn's and apparently that might have been a smokescreen because Miami. Pass on a couple of times but there are some thoughts Leading up to the draft. That Miami was considering drafting Dobbins in the first round with one of its three first round picks. Probably the final of those three didn't happen and a Baltimore decided. We have got to pull the trigger on this player. Because he's a great football player. He's a one cut downhill runner. He's a great fit for this raven offense that that's based on. That's based on the run game around. Lamar Jackson in the Mar Jackson's twenty. Two career starts all running backs. That's any running back. Average is five point zero nine yards per. Carry all of them. That's ridiculous for context of running backs with one hundred or fifty or more carries last season. Devon Single Terry led all qualifiers with five point. One three yards per carry so basically running behind. Lamar Jackson is is a is a guarantee that you're going to be in the mix for the yards per carry title so this is a great fit for J. Dobbins. The bad news for fantasy is mark. Ingram who's really effective last year? They still have Gus Edwards. They still have Justice Hill here. So this is a guy who I look at it and think all right I view Dobbins with this landing situation as an absolute perfect landing spot but the question becomes for fantasy this season alone. Is he going to be kind of useless? In the first half of the season and then really useful in the second half of the year. Is he going to be useless for fantasy all year long? Is he going to be very useful? Is he going to be so good early on that? They're going to benchmark Ingraham Forum. I don't know if any of those things are true but the one thing that I look at here and by the way I think you can make the argument Dobbins or Jonathan. Taylor should be the second pick and rookie apps just because of his long term outlook but for fantasy this year. I wonder if Dobbins is going to be more like Nick Chub two years ago and Mile Sanders last season where they really weren't very useful for fantasy purposes but then ended up becoming league winners down the stretch especially miles sanders. Ross you remember how well he produced down the stretch this year. I wonder if Dobbins is going to have to be a player like that that you have to sit on and wait for him to marinate so he can so he becomes The the Ravens Starter. But if he sees the field in in a capacity where he's getting fifteen carries a game at some point. The guy's going to be a top twelve running back. It's just a question of if and when that opportunity comes here last one the second round Joe is Aj Dylan. Who the packers. Surprisingly took a Boston College at the end around to well the Jordan love pick. You know that piss packers fans off but Aaron Rodgers is play slipping Dylan might be the pick. That really got him going. Because packer fans are looking at their team. They're like we need weapons around Aaron Rodgers. We we need to help them out if this is his last year or two in Green Bay. We need to help them out. And then if you look at the packers roster you can make the argument. The strongest position on team last year was the running back position. Aaron Jones scored nineteen touchdowns at led the NFL. Jamal Williams is a solid number two back and the packers fans are sitting here thinking this historic wide receiver draft. We still have good players on the board at this point. You know. We Still Brian Edwards on the Board Antonio Gandhi Goldens on the board deadened duvaliers on the board. And we're drafting running back in the second round this one really got packer fans going. But I if I'm trying to rationalize the pick if I'm trying to get into the mindset of Matt floor and Brian Guten cuts the general manager there. I think the floor saw Derrick Henry. Aj Dylan I at least on some level you know six foot two hundred and forty seven pounds not many running backs or built like that. Not Many linebackers. These days are built like that. He ran a four five three forty at the combine and jumped out of the building. So you see a lot of explosiveness in AJ Dylan at least in terms of his measurable 's and I think Matt before remember. He was in Tennessee. He was the play caller in Tennessee when Tennessee during the twenty eighteen. Nfl season decided to switch from a dual backfield approach with Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry. In the first half of the season to essentially benching Dion Lewis and leading Derrick Henry. Just basically run the offense. He was the foundation of the offense and the Tennessee. Titans taken off since that point riding that all the way to the AFC championship game in Twenty nineteen. The I mean. You look at Oxfam's razor in these situations. Aj Dylan reminded reminded Matt Leflore Derrick Henry. I don't think he's as explosives Derrick Henry. I don't think he's as good of a prospect is derrick. Henry was coming out but this is pure philosophy. Change pick the packers stink. They want to run the football and they WANNA run it. Well they want to run it consistently now. The question becomes. How many snaps does Dylan plays rookie. I don't think Jones coming off. The Field Guy. Guy Had nineteen touchdowns last year so does. Aj Dylan's supersede. Jamal Williams is he. Somebody who's just going to sit and learn and rest while Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams who are on the final years of their contracts run this backfield. I am really struggling to find the snaps. That are going to make dillon particularly fantasy relevant. And if he's a rotational back. I actually think that's a misuse of him in the same way it was a misuse of Derrick. Henry so if. Aj Dylan's getting nine to ten carries per game. He's just not going to produce for fantasy this year. I think he needs to be the hammer. Rb One and I don't see those snaps for him. This year the question becomes too the packers both Jones and Williams walk after the season and then. Aj Dylan's the foundation back. I think there's too many questions right now to really get a great projection of AJ Dylan as we head into the twenty twenty. Th the third round picks Joe Keyshawn Vaughn to the bucks. Zac Moss. To the bills and Barrington Evans to the titans. Which of those are relevant to you or do you think all three merit a discussion while the off three merit at least some comment keyshawn bonds the most relevant of the He he's a third round. Pick seventy six overall. We thought the bucks could be a team that would dabble in the second round at the running back position. I think the only thing that kind of surprise me a little bit was bruce. Arians came out this off season and mentioned that he really thought the bucks need to get a pass catching running back. So you're thinking Oh Mandy Andrea Swift Clyde Edwards Allaire camakers. These guys would be great fits there. I don't think anybody really thought of keyshawn. Vaughn a great receiving running back coming out. I think it's an underrated aspect of his game. I think he can run screens. They think by the way they find out admitted that they thought he was an underrated receiver. But it wasn't really the big part of his game at Vanderbilt If you look at Vaughn on the surface he actually was kind of a similar prospect to Ronald Jones a better prospect than Jones. I did not like Jones coming out of us on. I thought he was a better prospect but similar kind of that straight line. One cut down hill type of guy so I is. He obviously above Ronald Jones on the depth chart. I guess he can't say that for sure. How goodwill the bucks defense is going to be able to get fifteen carries per game and the other thing that you need to point out. Is They talked about the fact that they needed a receiving back while they drafted more of a Jitterbug type of back? Raymond Coleus in the seventh round out of Louisiana. Lafayette I believe so. Where does he fit into the equation? Hopefully we're going to have some sort of an off season program to watch this but Keyshawn von Right now is typically typically going off the board as the third or fourth running back in in Redraft Leagues Certainly Behind Edwards Alaron Jonathan Taylor. And he's kind of in the mix there with Jay Dobbins. I A lot of people think Vaughn has easier path relevance. Jk Dobbins says. At least right away I think this could be a league winning back but I also view keyshawn at somebody who gets one hundred ten carries and at the end of the year. We're like man. I can't believe he was going in the sixth round. So I'm in on keyshawn volume. I think he's the most relevant of the three third round picks but there are still some questions for Keyshawn von so. Hopefully we get some sort of off season program to answer those questions for Zach Moss. I think there's a. There's a clear path to one hundred and fifty carries at for him as a rookie. He's going to play. The Frank Worrell Brandon beane went on Sirius. Xm NFL radio and said Yeah We. We think he's going to be frank or in this offense while Frank. One hundred seventy nine touches last year. The problem for exact. Moss's as it as it is a problem for Devon Single Terry. They're going to feed eat off each other's touches and then Josh Allen has seventeen rushing touchdowns the last two seasons. So there's not a lot of touchdown upside Zach Mossy or so. He's more of a tenth eleventh round type of pick in a second round. Rookie Dynasty. Pick and then Barrington Evans. Ross you mentioned him up. Tennessee took them ninety third overall in the third round. Fascinating utterly fascinating. I plugged at the top of the of the show. Greg Cosell's draft guide of fantasy points DOT com. While he watched Evans coming out of Appalachian State he watched him early in the process. Before the drafting said Darren Evans fits the profile of a running back. Who's going to be best in an outside wide zone? Run game a Ross. Do you know who runs outside zone. Better than any team in professional football. Titans Tennessee Titans. It's the foundation of their run game. So Evans is not Derrick. Henry Okay. Few people are six. Three two hundred fifty pound running backs do not grow on trees. As a matter of fact they are the tree. I mean they're not built like that Darren Evans is like five to ten somewhere around there. But he's an outside zone running back. He's a good receiver. Who can probably give Henry a breather here and there? And if Henry were to go down Danton Evans. Frankly for fantasy is instantly instantly one of the top three or four handcuffs in all a fantasy football because of the way he fits into this scheme. So this is we. We typically don't see teams invest third round picks to protect an investment in the run game. Typically a third round pick at the running back position is premium pick review. These picks as as players. You should come in and start. Now maybe view that as Evans game down the road. Because Derrick Henry is only playing on the franchise tag this year there. There's thoughts there's Thurs assumptions that they want to work out a long term deal. But that might not happen. You know you guys get hurt. The running back position. So maybe Darren Evans has a roll down the line but for right now. This is the Tennessee. Titans saying the foundation of our entire offense is the outside zone run game. If Derrick Henry gets hurt we are screwed so if Derrick Henry has to miss a couple of games remember. He was dinged up at the end of last season it. Yes the couple of Games Darren Evans is going to keep them on schedule. And if Derrick Henry is out for. Let's say three weeks. Darren Evans is going to be projected as a top twelve running back for however long. Derrick Henry is out because of the nature of the titans offense. They are still going to run the ball if Derrick Henry is hurt or not that's why Darren Evansville is an important pick for them for immediate fantasy value. Though it's just not gonNA happen. He Needs Derrick Henry to be be hurt for that Joe. I'm going to give you some names. You get to talk about one of these guys so you have to choose wisely. Joshua Kelly with the chargers La- Michael P with the Jet Anthony McFarland with the steelers. Dj Dallas in Seattle Jason Huntley with the Lions. That's it you you get to talk about one of those guys. It's your choice ladies choice. Okay so I am going to. I'm going to. I'm going to talk about the guy. I have ranked highest for dynasty. Even though I have thoughts on all of those guys the guy ranked highest dynasties Anthony McFarland and it's fascinating because you can read into this pick from from different perspectives. If you believe in James Connor all McFarland is a fourth round. Pick as a change of pace type player and it's a good sign. The steelers didn't invest in earlier. Pick in running back. They J Dobbins was on the board in the second round when they took chase poll. So you can say hey look. They didn't take Dobbins even though the fans might WanNa Dobbins or camakers there they even James Connor however if you think the steelers don't trust James Connor you can view McFarland skill set as very intriguing. And and you can see. He say he profiles a someone who compare nicely with Benny Snell in thunder and lightning backfield. The truth is probably somewhere in between but Anthony McFarland that. This guy came out After his freshman season his redshirt freshman season in two thousand eighteen. If he could have come out maybe he gets drafted higher than this. A spectacular first year at Maryland He ran for two hundred ninety eight yards on twenty one carries against Ohio state that year. But it's twenty nine hundred thousand tape reports where he played through a high ankle sprain. So things weren't as impressive. He's undersized but he's a really hard charging kind of downhill aggressive runner. He reminded me in that mold of Philip Lindsey or Matt Brita type of runner and I think that pairs well with with a grinder. Whether that's connor or Benny Snow. In Pittsburgh. He only caught twenty four passes in college. But I think that's an that was an underutilized of his game. I think he's straight line speed could make him very effective on screen routes and we'll routes. I think that should become a bigger part of his game terms of redraft leagues. I think he's worth a shot around the tenth around because I do think there's a chance he leads. This Pittsburgh offense in production out of the Backfield I really do. And but if James Connor stays healthy there's a chance McFarland barely played so. That's where where you take in that tenth eleventh round. I think he's a second round rookie dynasty pick but if Ben Rothlisberger is healthy that is a huge shift but if Ben Rothlisberger is healthy this is going to be a good offense. An hour invest in aback. Who's got a chance in a really good often. Such good stuff. I mean Joe is like Evan was. He's like an encyclopedia with these guys. It is unbelievably impressive to hear him.

Hour 3

"Some news coming from the chiefs colts game. That's the first game of the day. I four over the weekend. Adam schefter. Believe was is getting this information out tailback Spencer where for Kansas City will work out pre-game to see if he can play he's dealing with a hamstring injury has got officially listed as questionable, but hopes are not high that he will go. In fact, there's a real chance that wear won't go, and of course, safety Eric berry won't go. He's been dealing with the heel injury. So anyhow that's the knock there and one of the issues there with Kansas City. Meanwhile, let's go to Los Angeles. Where the Rams host the Dallas Cowboys and the Cowboys have not won a game in this round of the playoffs since nineteen the Cowboys haven't won a game in this route since nineteen ninety five and the Rams though are the ones that come in. As we bring in just seeing Anderson who's covering this. And she's on the shell Pennzoil performance line with a little bit of doubt. As to the way, they are playing right now, what is the state of the Los Angeles Rams Justyna. Well, I think everything starts with Jared Goff. You know, had a really good conversation with the quarterbacks coach who's actually supposed to be reportedly the next head football. Coach of the Bengals just how he thinks. Jared Goff has been performing particularly night just was talking about this on our. So when he had those struggles that everybody was talking about between thirteen weeks fifteen and he only had the one touchdown six interceptions. People crazily kinda started talking about around the country. You know, something wrong with golf, Sean McVeigh make him, you know, schemes or you know, simplified that he's not really reading anything. Are we starting to see a little bit? You know, more of how he performs under adversity particular against those types of defense. I think that's stretching -cluded the bears the eagles. And surprisingly Taylor was very honest. He's like, you know, what he is struggling in situational football. And that's what we've been trying to work on having to think you have to be so aggressive all the time. I think he has to score fifty points all the time. And so on one hand, the good news is that they were able to get to wins in the last two games with you know, kinda makes them feel like they're back on track. He's like I like his focus all these other things, but the bad news about that is that those were against much easier defenses, and they'll be facing today. Obviously the Cowboys is not like the forty Niners and the other team that they face. It wasn't so great. So we'll see I think it'll be a true test to be how he's gonna handle the pressure in his face today. And when I was talking to DeMarcus Lawrence was it last night or a couple of nights ago two nights ago. He was just like that's why our whole thing is like it's all about stopping girly 'cause up there force Goff to see what he can do against us. You know with his arm weapons four act Prescott. You're seeing the coal Beasley with all. The ankle last week. How is he going in house the condition physically of this Dallas cowboy football team? Well, first and foremost, I think mentally they're in a really good spot of. And I even ask the Marcus Lawrence about that. Because I was a little skeptical. I was the one the reporter who covered the game when they played them colts. And they got shut out and they admitted that they got homo. They went in there, and they underestimated Indy, and then I was like, well, how can you really tell if you're ready for the play offs went. Yes. You beat the giants. But you gave up thirty five points defensively. And he was like, well, I didn't really play. Tai Crawford didn't play blah, blah. I can tell guys are focused and they come out there. And they do a good job at home against the Seahawks. So DeMarcus Lawrence told me, basically, it's the same thing. You know? He's like, hey quarterback. Everyone's you know, it's the same task. You know matter who it is our task is to say, we don't need any big, you know, motivational thing I think Sante did for his team this week bringing an armored truck with two hundred thousand and showing them the Super Bowl trophy. He was like the whole world understands how good of a defense. We are. And I think that we're ready Kobe's Li I think we'll uh. You know, be, you know, serviceable out here solid. I think the the X factor continues to be Amari Cooper, and making sure that he's reading it for everybody else with the attention that he takes away with the defensive attention. Anderson joining us from LA as the Rams get ready to host the Dallas Cowboys. There's a lot of talk about potential pressure on Sean McVeigh and getting the Rams over this hump. But what's the approach of the Dallas Cowboys? They had obviously phenomenal finish to the regular season. And a nice win at home last week. But is there any semblance of of anxiety or being up tight, given the fact that this is around they haven't succeeded in coming up on twenty five years. Well, I don't get the sense that they're uptight. But I wanna Kim to the first part of your question for when he was saying is there pressure on, you know, Sean McVeigh, and I do think there is a little bit of pressure being as though and this round last year they did lose against the falcons actually covered that game. I was here last year. There's a lot of talk about McVay being a magician at the offense, and you know, the defensive coordinator quantum on. You'll did manual did a good job of a really setting down girly last year. I'm agree. Only had like thirty three rest yards through the first three quarters, and though with all of this. I think what really kind of widens the pressure a little bit. Maybe not specifically on Sean. But maybe the the optics of, you know, Sean is that you know, there's so much, you know, talk with all his hot people, you know, trying to hire people like him across the league. And you know, his assistant's acceler reportedly getting the job with the Bengals. And you know, just the young guys like Matt leflore and all these other things. So I think that he needs to show that he can. I get to the next level that postseason in that Gough is continuing to make those strives I would say as for the Cowboys. And when I think about them, the only thing that kind of stuff out about the stuck to me out to me rather. When I talked to them is that I felt like when I talked to them the week before. I that's just my personal sense. I felt like they sounded a little bit more amped and this week when I was talking into market Lawrence and just I heard a little bit more. It was the height was a little bit more tamp down. And the reason why I think that that's important when I detect something like that. Because it just to give you a great example. That reminds me of last year when I talked to the Vikings they had the first round by then they played or whichever they they played the first game. I can't remember who it was against. Oh, that's what it was. They had the by then they played the they played the saints, and they were really hyped that game. They had the rest of the week before. And he heard the energy and then the week leading into the NFC championship game. It was a completely different tone in there. I could hear just in the week. After the bye heard the, you know, the fatigue and their voice, and then they came out there, and they played a little bit more tired. So now, they're traveling. They don't have the benefit of the Seahawks coming to them like they did last week. So I think it'll just be interesting to see how they whether that particularly when they're coming out here. And it's not like, great weather, and they're you know, had the benefit of playing indoors last week real quick before. I let you go and move on these coaching changes you cover this league. And it's entirely about Zack Taylor possibly going into Cincinnati quarterback. Coach with the Rams just your feelings about all the different changes. And some of the coaches that got these head coaching positions. Well, I mean, there's obviously a lot of talk about it. I mean, there are eight bacon. Bs eight firings. Five of those coaches where African American reportedly only one of them will be African American. If the, you know, the reports hold true that Brian Flora's will be the next head football coach of the Miami Dolphins, which I still think it's strains that that leaked, you know, before the game because I think you would like to kind of see how both Chris Rashard for the Cowboys and Flora's for the patriots actually do today. 'cause how awkward would that be if the you know chargers or whenever that game was today or tomorrow tomorrow? Right. So whenever you know, the chargers play the patriots if they come out there, and they just like, let's say thirty four hip before zip. And then restart has this great. You know, performance of the Cowboys hold up really strong against the Rams. That's a little awkward, but o- overall. There's just been a lot of talk about you know, the fact that the league is following this trend trying to find the next on McVeigh, the lack of experience with some of these coaches and not only that where you see that with like a guy like clip kings. Jerry. But what really stands out about situations like that? With Matt with four Kingsbury is that the particularly with Kingsbury of his lack of knowledge of the other coaches in the league to be able to put his back together and how much he's leaning on Steve kind just to put a staff together. I mean, he doesn't even know any of these guys to know how they we act under pressure how he'll get along with them chemistry. So when you talk about a lot of coaches this year that lost jobs with the selection of their offensive coordinator that wasn't good. If particular, you know, one coast, whether It's Hugh Jackson, you know, I can't think of all the other offensive coordinators right now. But I know that's the trend was allowed the firing. When you think of that that that how that one hiring can cost the job or chemistry can cost a job. You know? We'll just see because all of these teams like the cardinals the Packers Kingsbury and with leflore. You have to think that they got to start off with strong starts particularly in Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers or the versity that could kinda take over the team chemistry there Anderson. In Los Angeles. Where the Rams host the Dallas Cavaliers just seen a great stuff. And it's good talking to you. Enjoy the game in the weekend. I thank you. All right. So there you go. Boy, let's see I love you got two of the best running backs in the NFL. And here's to hoping Todd Gurley is healthy. And right and get a C those to play huge parts for their teams in a big time game tonight. Chris Pollica coming up. You heard Scott sprite Sers two picks from the NFL. I posted those earlier on Twitter at ESPN Dory. Chris Feliks gonna deliver his picks, you know, him as the bear from game day and the Stanford. Stephen the bear podcast that is what is next at story. And Mel let's consider the secret life of the innermost nesting doll living, most of her life in the dock inside the other nesting Dole's. She has plenty of time to think if could Saturday she has no brain, however, when in the most nesting dole, his the geiko not only saves people money, but also has been providing great service for over seventy five years. She thinks it's obvious. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to gyco is a no brainer in a most nesting Dollond lot in life. Chris Veliko joining us right now. Shell Pennzoil performance line. You know him from college game day, and from the Stanford, Stephen the bear podcast and latte last week one in one of the NFL, and then you drill your college pick by nailing Clemson to beat Alabama. Let me let me what game or you're. You're kinda sure you like, but you're not sure enough to make it official on this particular show bear on on this for for this coming weekend. Yes. I would say the one that I kinda like, but I'm not a hundred percent soul would be the Rams just 'cause they if really. Struggled to finish a lot. I I know girlie is back now. But I I'm a little worried about laying that Laham at seven with them that game has written all over special Cowboys running in going defense played pretty well. I if I if you're asking me to pick a third or whatever or an ad many as I could I would say the Rams, but that was that would be the lowest on the priority. That's the aligns when they opened on these four games Chris into where they are. Now hadn't changed much. So I wanna get your best bets one on a show Feliks as best bets. Where are you going this week? We're not limiting one would however many you have what are what are your best bets this weekend. I I like both dogs in both SEM. I think the AFC was was the league that all season that was more wide open the NSA, then the NFC I think we looked the NFC all year long probably say it was gonna be. Lamb saints for for the longest time. And it sure looks like it's going to be that way. But I I just don't wanna lay a big numbers with those home favorites. But you you've you've got four four dogs. I think in both games at are all really attractive, and we saw all four door dogs covering our last weekend. But I do like the the Colt on the road to getting what I think it's five or five and five and a half. But in Kansas City that offense of line travel for the colts that that defense has been great. I in then I get I think that she's kind of peaked a little bit early. And you talked about a team that's had problems on defense. Kansas City has who does. Whether is the equalizer there with the with the snow and the cold. But but but gosh, if they Andrew luck is reminding everybody how great of a player he was before the shoulder injury. I loved it all sorts of wine. I think that can go in there control the game. And and potentially when the game at right, but I certainly would take up Indianapolis, plus the five and a half. So you wanna ride officially with? Indianapolis and five and yes, absolutely. That's what is another official in the other won't be the the charter smarter. I think charters if you look all Aloun field. I think the chargers have the better team again, they're they're at a lot of people are picking to win this week. And it's hard not to. I mean, you don't wanna get scared off because seems like one of those public dogs with fleas. But as I said, I think you look real. What is your walk? That was one of the other questions was who's the dog with fleas this week? And it was usually that team that you just want absolutely stay away from it. A whole lot of people are on the chargers, but a lot of people on charger last week, and they might just be that good to overcome the the weight of the public backing. You always had to keep a mind with the patriots at home or they're going to get a call and the big playoff game. But we know that's happened before. But I think it was he called him saying the loss. I know. They should be said. Yeah, go we because to say that the chargers team at just seem to play better away from home. And I I know it's going to be all call the winds die down the gave me no precipitation up here in the northeast tomorrow. So I will take the I'll take the charges on the road at New England in such a low number two. I think if you're laying with New England you gotta be kinda scary that why is it only four four and a half something in that range? I think even three and a half and a couple of places. So I think charges Mel what's the number? We're on four artist bus for chargers plus four so your official. Pigs colts plus five and a half today at the chiefs. And then the chargers plus four. Yeah. That doing Chris we could have real quick like thirty seconds because you cover these college players, and we've been talking a lot of. About Cuyler Murray. What kind of NFL quarterback could you envision Cuyler Murray becoming? Isn't he fall don't you think? I mean, I don't Baker drew Brees or what how goes height restrictions. And maybe the game is changing so much where you're gonna line them up and shotgun, and it's not, but he wanted to lift up at five nine or whatever. I don't know. I. Iffy. I, but he is so dynamic and his ability on and throw. Now, if you are you talking about taking the top ten of the draft talking about. Yeah. I I don't know if I would but somebody will mail you believe one hundred percent somebody will. Yeah. But he he does possess some dynamic offense of abilities. And it again, it's all going to all be about the fit. Are they gonna is it gonna be close Kingsbury thinking, I'm not beholding the mcardle they're going to they're going to cut the cord with Josh Rosen. That's asked that they're gonna run run a wide open shock offense. And then in that's what they're going to do that could be a spot. But gosh, I don't know. It would it would worry me a lot more that it would take Baker Mayfield patterns or one more question for you. Then Jalen hurts. How confident are you that your alma mater, the university of Miami is his next football destination? Whoa. You would have to think it's either going to be a Miami following his at scored in the Danny's or it's going to be Maryland to follow his other offense coordinator system, largely what what you'd have to think. It's probably one of those two spots. I don't know. Oklahoma would be that the spot for him because that's what really been his ultimate strong that I do think you need to be a little bit more passer. I and now the best thing that happened to teach. Jalen hurts a fear was to starting and Jalen really working on his passing not playing working on his passing game in practice. And he got if you watch the SEC championship game. He's threw the ball eight ten better in that comeback against Georgia. If I had to guess, I'm going to lean I'm going to say that he. Will be wearing we're in that you on the side of Thomas, y'all get them to give them slight edge over Maryland as well because I get the sense and just watching him for the last couple of years. Yeah. You guys who wants to win. And I don't know it Marilyn you're really up against divisional playoff weekend in the NFL. Dorian mel. Always presented by progressive insurance. All guest you wanna shell Pennzoil performance line, by the way, one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed. I just posted the bears picks Chris Feliks too and F L picks likes a couple of dogs. Go get those at ESPN Dory. If you missed him a few minutes ago it it's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones. Best networks, no contracts. We'll get it at a today's games a little bit too. We got plenty of time to do that between now and the end of the show, but I want to go into tomorrow. We haven't spent a lot of time on these. Specifically the second game of the day the eagles and the saints. And you know, the way the eagles one on the Cody parkey. Touched then going than don't field goal attempt in Chicago last week. It's just you know, it's Nick foles didn't have a great game. They didn't win because of Nick foles. But Nick foles is the guy because he needs to be the guy. And now you're starting to wonder what if they go into New Orleans they win. I mean, could you imagine it's improbable? There's no question. It's almost silly to think about but that quarterback position in Philly. Whether the eagles wanted to or not is obviously becoming a story because it has to become a story because you've got a Super Bowl champion who's going to be a free agent at the end of the year, they're likely going to let walk right or would. They here's Doug Peterson the eagles head coach now on how Carson Wentz the incumbent is handling everything that's going on Carson. He definitely wants to be out there and he wants to be his teammates. And I just think that he right now, he's a great support for Nick. And that's that's huge. Because Nick Nick is. Been that way for him. And that's a big that's a big thing from going and and go from starter tobacco. That's hard. But then now you're in this position to really help the starter become successful. But yeah, I just think that he sees how everything's kind of coming together. Whether it be the run game or the offense of lines playing. Well, or even even your skill position guys are making plays. I think that's all things that he's processing and learned it from. We'll be better when he when he gets back out there. That can't be really a controversy. Right. I mean, one of these guys as a franchise quarterback in one of them is an admirable backup at least in this situation. Is there more than that? Well, I think it's the money games. And Nick foles has been able to win these games. He's got an incredible streak that he's on right now. I think it ends against New Orleans. We pick both pick New Orleans go to the Super Bowl. And I think they're fortunate to beat the bears last week when the misfield, but again, you know, this is what it matters the most. But who's the better quarterback over the long haul? Obviously Carson Wentz as their guy Carson to us approving stay healthy. He was interest. Final year North Dakota state with the wrist came back to play in the end. But again you talking about a couple of years now. And that's the third year would be the final year, North Dakota state. You gotta stay healthy. And you gotta be out there. And we know he's capable being a great NFL quarterback. But durability is a key with him. And so far that's been an issue. So they've been fortunate to have foles, but this will be the final year. You would think that he will be behind Carson Wentz. And and certainly in this game. Dr you think about the success of foles needs to have the eagles running a ball. It's going to be an issue. It's been an issue. Okay. The saints have been strong against the run. It's going to be on Nick foles and the throw the football and air it out. And you think about worries been the last four starts eight touchdown passes five interceptions hadn't been perfect. I've been close to the eagles that they're gonna come away with a road win Dari. You've gotta be at least you would think even in terms of turnovers. They were minus six during the regular season door ones was plus eight patrol breeze. Carved them up November eighteenth. Do they make the Schwartz? Make those adjustments. Always say you just when you lose the saints thought to adjust. They dominated that game. The eagles were dominated. They're gonna make a lot of adjustments. And as I say drew Brees November eighteenth four touchdown passes. No picks twenty to thirty for three hundred and sixty three yards everything. Clicked? They ran the ball. Philadelphia has to stop the run. Mark Ingram Alvin Kamara combined for in that game one hundred hundred. Seventy four rushing yards. Two touchdowns when twenty nine carries trae Quant Smith. Oh, he had a breakout game. Ten catches for one hundred fifty seven years. They had no answer for New Orleans is offense. No answer. That was it was one-sided as I say breeze. Carve them up. You got to believe there's going to be some adjustments there the make things a little bit more difficult for the saints. But the end of the saints of the better team. I think foles is run ends and Wentz. They answer your question. Dr. There's no question Carson Wentz quarterback. Nick foles is a great story. Nick foles has won six straight games overall as a betting underdog and four straight postseason games as a betting underdog. It's it's why you don't count them out. Accept the fact that defensively I can't find a way especially when New Orleans and drew Brees drops back to throw the football how Philadelphia stops them enough. Like, you've got to think do you not to have a chance to win this game. Nick foles is going to have to leave that offense to at least at Lea. Least thirty one thirty four points. Right at least. Yeah. And I mean, I think that might be low ending this thing that might be being conservative getting them off the that's the key. Dr is I don't like folds can through that. So can you get way down from where it was the eagles during the regular season? One of the better teams when it came to third down defense. Okay. You gotta get the saints off the field. Problem was in that game. The saints converted over fifty percent of their third-down opportunities. So they can't ain't gonna cut that way down. So normally what they were strong at the saints didn't care about. They said you're not gonna be strong against us. We're going to dominate you on third down. They did. So the eagles gotta get backed up kind of playing against the saints. Like they did the rest of the league. And can they make those adjustments and swertz as a heck of a Schwartz with these a coordinator? So we'll see on that. Because that's where it's going to have to come that offense. That defense needles was no match for the saints offense that that was November eighteenth. We'll see tomorrow if that changes. Gory and Mel ESPN radio ESPN app. Do you find yourself rooting? And I know like, I know you don't because you pick the patriots to go to the Super Bowl and you want to be right. And you want me to be wrong. I mean in the history of our show together. Eight years. There's only one of us who has ever hit both Super Bowl teams. Correct in August. And you did it when you had the patriots and Seahawks. You would love to do it again with the patriots and saints. But is there not a part of you? That would like to see Philip rivers win this game in Foxboro tomorrow. And I ROY don't care about the predictions. Sorry. They don't mean anything way, ROY. They really don't mean much. They don't they really don't. I think the chargers or the better team. I'm with you on that as I said the patriots. Alright flawed team the patriots have issues. Now if you say what's going to determine the game. And I obviously watching the raven game. We Philip rivers is going to determine the raven defense isn't the patriot defense and the one thing the patriots can't do heat on a quarterback that's tied for thirtieth. And sax in the league that's not an area. They're strong. Absolutely. Should have time to be comfortable. They gotta get Keenan Williams and white Kenyan Alan and Mike Williams go, and they got to be much bigger factors than they were against the ravens. They got to be able to run the ball. The patriot. Have trouble stopping to run Gordon is he going to be one hundred percent. No. We be good enough. With Ecuador is not one hundred percent either along with Jackson the rookie to give them the running game. They need. They should be able to move the ball everything points the rivers the running backs Alan Williams getting the job done is hunter Henry going to be back for this game. We'll see the defensively gronkowski for the last five games less than thirty receiving yards. You know, running the ball for the patriots because that charter defense they may have some success, but hopefully for the for your sake, not a lot the one turnover chargers were plus one patriots were plus in. So you gotta had there. They were fortunate. We're gonna get Gordon almost fumbled going in last week that could have been a big difference. It was twelve to three game. At that point. They still had to struggle to hold off the ravens the chargers have a history of late the falling behind. They got a lead last week. But if they fall behind here could be trouble the weather going to be cold. So again, a lot of people think this is New England's time to shine that again when this type of stage bellwood chick with time to prepare rises up and they play great. They play above and beyond. What we saw some of those bad games. They had this year. The chargers or the everybody says the complete team the better team. And I agree. I think they are the better football team right now going into this game. How about I mean is this not ridiculous? Mel that the patriots if they win we'll have gone to eight straight AFC championship. Games mean, it's an incredible statistic in a league where there is actually some degree of parody and unpredictability that's the one predictable. But we will. That's why I say that gets into what we dynasty when you're that good on that even when they had castle in for Brady, they still want to right. This team won't go away. And that's not say when you're I'm not talking just being relevant. I'm talking about being elite right up there with now you have to win every year. But when you win as many as they have where you may as Alabama's and you're always there if you go to year period where you're not in the playoffs or you're not in the playoff final four for college. And you're eight or not one of those say the dynasty is over. That's what I think for the patriots for Alabama, very similar and there's ties with Bela chicken saving friends coach together. No, similar success hall of fame NFL hall of fame college. So I think dynasty New England dynasty, Alabama until somebody. We year on year out. You're not going to be playing for a championship. When that time comes I'll be ready to say. Dynasty, no long. You're not baiting me into that conversation again. So we're patriots here. Patriots. Are they still a dynasty? No. By the way, this season a perfect nine no outside of Los Angeles that deal not so bad, by the way. Both our experts do just the for people just tuning in Scott sprite were and the bear crystal Eka both in agreement and why check when they are in agreement. They don't win every week. But they've done about seventy five percent on when they both agree. So they both have the chargers in that game plus four chargers chargers plus four new him. All right. Those are tomorrow's games. We're also going to dive into today's two games as you've heard straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless, nationwide coverage on America's largest and most dependable four G L T networks to the chiefs. Stop their streak of six straight home playoff losses. And can the Cowboys go to LA and cast all kinds of doubt on the Rams young head coach, Sean McVay, we go there next door Mel ESPN radio ESPN app. How we feel in mailman. We're always. Feeling good. When we are that. Dorian male ESPN radio. Few minutes left. We're always presented by progressive insurance. Four playoff games expensive time. Just a few minutes ago on the games of tomorrow. What's the biggest thing you're watching for mailman colts and chiefs today colts Shays for me is the cheese? Offense getting Travis Kelsey heavily involved in getting him going early because you gotta be more for Mahomes than just looking at the options hill and what he can do down the field. But I think in would not have in Kareem hunt and catch a lot of passes. But what he did he made them count. And you don't have hunt now as your main running threat Celtics got to be a key less sixty five receiving yards each of the last three games. Didn't record a touchdown as well. During that stretch of games? I think that's the whole thing. For me. Travis Kelsey, he's gotta come up big right away. And then get out and put pressure on luck. Because they have had a good pass rush. Laaksonen been sacked eighteen times the chase retired for tops the league. With fifty two sacks. You get them. Marlin MAC limit because Marlin that should be able to run in this game. Okay. I mean this guy against this chief defense that gives up a lot of your five yards per carry. Dr that if you get the luck where he has Marlin MAC runnin and they're in a game. That's even or they have a lead. The chiefs are in trouble. The key is cheese with Kelsey Gitten that Lee ten nothing fourteen nothing taking Marlin MAC kind of out of the game. Putting it on Andrew locked and that offensive line that starts to rookies to play as well in this environment with allow the crowd noise, and the how now that is an offensive line, particularly one with two rookies, I think that's critical Dari that she's have to get a nice lead first quarter, first quarter and a half. And that plays airlines one of the greatest atmospheres. I mean, that's what they're what I was a kid. And it was it was amazing. Crowd noise, hamper more than anything else. What does it affect more than anything else? Offensive line. Yes. Exactly quarterback conversation with and snap count and all that stuff place. It'll be shaken there's no doubt. But I think it might be shaken more out of nerves because they're used to see in the chiefs come into these situations and fall, you know, we talk all the time about oh my goodness, Patrick Mahomes. And what can you do offense against colts defense? Well, the colts defense has gotten better over the course of the year the chiefs defense hasn't so from a homes in the chiefs to be able to win this game. There has got to be improvement on Kansas City's defense. You talk about it. If Marlin MAC, it's going they're five and he runs for a hundred yards. Andrew luck is on fire right now. This team is hot right now the chiefs allow twenty six points a game that's in the bottom fourth or third actually of the entire National Football League that these are concerns, and then if there's any tightness then maybe that tightness has felt from around Arrowhead stadium. I don't know. I kinda like the colts. I just feel really good about the like about the colts story is their third down ability to keep drives alive. They were nine for fourteen on third down last week third down so critical in the NFL nine for thirteen last week festival league during the regular season Cassidy defense below average. When it comes to third down the fence. No Eric berry with a heel injury. Chris Jones one man wrecking crew up front. They get a Pash rush. But as I said, you'd think about Kansas City without Kareem hunt. I it's going to impact people don't talk enough and how great he was as a running back slash receiver with twenty six catches. But averaged about fifteen yards a catch and that touchdowns in that area as well. So I'm with you. I think that's going to be a very very hotly contested game on less. The key for me. Kansas city. Ten nothing fourteen nothing, then it's a different ballgame likely know Spencer ware. Sammy Watkins chiefs receiver questionable with a foot injury. But a source did say told Adam Schefter that what can is expected to play. So Watkins may play where who knows berry. No, that's what we're looking at. All right. Second game of the Cowboys at Rams Todd Gurley hasn't played in twenty seven days. They think he'll likely play today. How effective willy B? That's a huge question. Right. Take some of that pressure off of Jared Goff. The Rams are still struggling with the fact that they lost to Atlanta in this situation a year ago at home a lot of people like Dallas in this game. You gotta have girly, and you gotta have girly, right? Don't you? Yeah. You gotta girl. You're right. And you gotta have obviously a situation here where you got contain those yo and say, well, yeah, sure, you have to say well that that's all Dow's is going to have because we think about throwing the football with Cooper, and company Beasley, not one hundred percent with the ankle. Okay. You think about Gallup the rookies had some key. Ops. He's coming on a little bit in terms of showing some promise made some some big time plays at times flash. Some big time ability, but consistency was lacking. I think you man up if your way Phillips you man up you could take Dallas passing game and neutralize it. You had that ability with your cover guys, and obviously upfront it's all about Aaron Donald the at twenty and a half sacks their second sacra Dory. Was SU he only had four and a half. So I know you're going to have a lot of attention when Donald everybody does yet. He's still get sacks. I don't think the passing game is going to be a threat to the Rams. I don't think it'll be a threat at all. I think it's going to get down to Elliott if they're one dimensional and all they have Zeke. He's he's a really good player. Great player, but and their defense a Rams allowed five one a carry. But if they don't have any passing game to worry about stack at box stop Elliott, and you've got the ramp shut down. So this is going to be on the Cowboys defense without Cooper Cup Jared gospel at different quarterback their offense alliance out some struggles. Curly's not one hundred percent. This is on the cow. The Cowboys are gonna win this game. It was going to be with their defense keeping the Rams below twenty three twenty four points, even maybe below twenty if they can do that if game becomes twenty seven to thirty four for the Rams Cowboys. I don't think have any shot. I'll take the Rams close will take the colts on the road you and I agree about the saints tomorrow over the eagles. And then you got the charger patriot game which more than anything else. It's important. But it's it's the most important because one of us wants to be right. I love it. I love the fact that our AFC champion at the beginning in August a respective champs. Go head to head in this game. And even if I didn't pick the chargers, I would still be rooting like a madman for Philip rivers. I want this team to win. And if you think about this if the colts win and the chargers win the AFC championship game will be played. In a Major League Soccer stadium that seats about twenty six thousand people. These stub hubs. Can you believe that would host the AFC championship? I o and hopefully last. Me what a what a great site. That would be. It'll be interesting another not Coliseum. We're not moving it to the Rose Bowl. Although that would be kind of fun to see the stubhub center. Homebody not locking up center. Galaxy? All right. That's it for us. We are done. We'll do this again next week nine eastern next Saturday Covina enrich our next mailman. Enjoy the football got it pal. All right. You're listening Doria Mel ESPN radio and the ESPN app.

He on Lee ide- p DP Lee even daily fed to see football shawna's as we break down all the question of fantasy football. It's the Golden State media concepts fantasy football podcasts. Hello all you fantasy football fans. Welcome to the GMC fantasy football party has brought to you by the G M C podcast network. I'm your hoses always Jeff Mallon off. And we got a little interesting. Well, Saigol some special for you guys. So Bleacher report thank God. For beach report has run a little article based off eight players fantasy football experts don't agree on. And I am going to tell you which side of the coin these unpredictable players are, and they are pretty interesting to say the least. And it's going to be based off wide receiver quarterback tight end and running back. And if there's any others they left out that I'd think need to be discussed. Then we absolutely will talk about it. Because it's bless shown. I do what I want. Well, not actually my show. It's run by somebody else. But I'm talking on the never mind, it's too complicated. Anyways, moving on. Let's talk first about why we missed. We've it missing last week. We I've been in Hawaii. I had a great time back now. And during my time away, we had more information about a certain individual by the name of tyreek hill who I put as one of my top four top maybe top three wide receivers in the NFL right now. And obviously that might be in jeopardy as his he's kind of in a little bit of he's in the doghouse if you will. When it regards to. In regards to his battery case. And. It's kinda interesting to see what's really going on. And I know this was have I think this having what March eighteenth? So is about a week ago, roughly two incidents involving tyreek hill, of course. Involved in the investigation of. Juvenile abuse. And. It's. It's interesting. I there's really not much more detail as a kind of just got swept under the I'm not sure maybe the wrong term. But it's been kind of I guess at old, I guess and the chiefs reportedly considered trading him do all this going on things to Chris sins of NBC sports for that knowledge. But as far as I know. This is the reports I have overland park police and Monday the last of last week they are investigating to allege incidents, including reported battery at the home of cancer cheese. Why does he retiree kill and have forwarded? A report to local prosecutors offices. He was in an investigation. Police reports battery and child abuse or neglect earlier that month. And. As of right now. It's his Johnson county district attorney Steve how early on money said the investigation is still ongoing. I am an heard anything since so, but he also wasn't show over strangling girlfriend in twenty fifteen and he pled guilty for that on that case. And they just got engaged ironic oddly enough to know of someone I'm not gonna get involved in personal life. That's their choice. I'm not going to do. I'm not gonna talk about it. But regarding this does that mean there's trouble for your fantasy teams? If you want to acquire already do acquire in certain situations tyreek hill. It's interesting. Because I don't really know. It's a it's a interesting situation to say the least. And. The bottom line is. Is there a suspension coming is? He getting cut a lot of things are still unknown at this time. And I seriously don't know what the outcome of this is get a hold for the future of the Kansas City Chiefs because they don't have tyreek hill one of their prominent. I know they've Travis Kelsey still get that. But they also have the fact that. Losing Terry Hill is in that deep threat is a serious problem. I. I am going to go on on like this. I'm gonna say hold on did your tyreek hill as a top pick in till, you know, the actual outcome. And when I mean actual outcome is suspension getting cut traded one way or the other seeing what the outcome of this whole scenario is if nothing is turned up by your draft days by your. By your draft days with your buddies having a beer and watching and having a big big board at home or you're doing it online. I will say that. I will definitely say that. He's definitely still a top pick for me. But I would be hesitant until I know the full results, but we don't know the full results yet. So it's still unknown at this time whether to go with that. Overall. I would say. It's poor timing for this to go on obviously this could have went if this was going on in the regular season in the middle of the season. I think it would have to do with certain it would have to resolve a suspension immediately or cut for bench for a couple of games or something around that nature regarding the incidents, but who knows what's the what's going to be going down. But it's definitely a hurting. Terry kills of hurrying his stock as of right now. Definitely. So with that being said. I really have much say about the battery case I'm gonna lead to the police investigators. Of course, I don't think I should say my an opinion on it. Because it's a touchy Subject Child, abusers always a. No, no, obviously. But of course, there's this emissions ongoing. We don't know what's true. And what's not true? So we're not gonna talk about it. So let's get into. The in predictable players, and we're gonna go these in detail. So we're gonna stretch we're just I just okay, anyways, we're gonna we're gonna talk about these guys in detail. I while we're going to quarterbacks views their most interesting, and the one guy that needs to be discussed probably more than anybody else is a MVP candidate of a couple of years ago that entered his ACL, you know, who I'm talking about Carson Wentz. Now, it's interesting to say, the least with you know, like he's coming back from his ACL injury like during eight hundred twenty eight thousand and he said he wasn't at one hundred percent. And he that's why the kind of city out from most of those games last season, and like in Nick foles took over and basically kept Carson went on the bench due to their. With Nick foles. So it's interesting to say the least because last year he kinda had better stats almost better stats in his twenty seventeen MVP candidacy campaign as he threw for three thousand yards and eleven games. Twenty-one touch seven picks and eleven games compared to thirteen games before towards ACL with thirty three touchdowns set in interceptions. He had a higher quarterback rating one. Oh, two point two than his last than the MVP season of one one point nine it wasn't envy PM use that as short term naming. But he said he wasn't that to normal. So is normal now. I mean ever since he toys ACL. It's been a question, Mark. It's been a question, Mark. It's been a question, Mark. It's been a question. Mark. And I'm not sure how else to go about this. Because of the fact that this is so. It's such a. Like, I said, it's unpredictable. Like the episode says it's unpredictable over the course of how everything is starting to light. People are doubting. Carson wentz. And if he's going to be back in the long term process long-term for the if he's going to be the franchise player, you know. So with that being said. I would like to say. Is the or the question is I would like to say the question is Carson Wentz to one of the top wider or two sorry? Still one of the top quarterbacks to be taken in the draft fantasy wise. And of course, usually were thinking when we're thinking about that we're gonna be thinking mainly about. Laid around v six ish that usually the right time traffic quarterback we've said that before on this show. But of course, there's gonna be some people take them very early. But I only he's not going to be the first quarterback selected. I guess the question should be who's gonna be. I who would you rather have Nick foles with the with the Jaguars or Carson Wentz with eagles. Now, the eagles just signed or just traded for Sean Jackson as used returning to the eagles. He's still a deep threat. So that's also that's also a main thing and. Basically, it's hard to really go on like who's gonna have the better season because they both have kind like I would say the better offense goes to the eagles. But with Carson Wentz his injury. He still unknown to me. I I'm basically like the guilty until proven innocent type scenario. But I'm thinking more along the lines of just like. All believe it when I see it, you know. So basically how I see all this going down is I would have picked Carson Wentz over Nick foles, and it's because of the offense around when's as well as very helpful and the deep threat that is to Sean Jackson is gonna be huge help. And the fact he still has his boy in Zakar, it's which I think is going to be huge dishes. Still huge addition that team still very important aspect of that team. And we all know that he has he has a chemistry with him. So that's still going to be a big factor when it comes down to it. So in the long run I would say Carson Wentz while better year. And I say, you know, I would I wouldn't mind having as my quarterback believe you my first choice. Probably not I would say more alone lines. I wanna see I will Baker Mayfield over him. Just how talented that team. Around a Baker Mayfield on the Cleveland Browns, still weird to say that the clean browser that talented. I'm not saying that in a bashful saying that more on along the lines of like they've been a punching bag for so long. It's nice to see them actually being a competitive and very talented team everything working out for them. I just love to see that. I think everyone's love in the Browns being good again. But getting off topic. I just think that if I had to pick between either Carson Wentz or bigger Mayfield. Baker mayfield's my first choice. But I would definitely have Carson Wentz. My second choice if that was the case, so definitely I would consider him as a as a potential big time player with the addition. Of course, like I said of of to Sean Jackson still Zakar it's still being a top three tight end in the NFL. Now with that being said, we're gonna take a short break when we come back. We'll discuss some other quarterbacks wide receivers running backs and tight ends that are going to be unpredictable to guess of how they will do this season. And we'll be right on that.

And like I said, we're finishing up our quarterback talks, unpredictable talks all together. The main thing that this next guy quarterback. Liz is a concern is Kirk cousins of the Minnesota Vikings. Now, obviously didn't make the playoffs last year. He was actually pretty disappointing things considerably as he was supposed to be the guy that takes him over the top. You know, he was supposed to be the hero. He was supposed to be. You know, if case keenum could take him to the NFC championship game the cousins make them win the Super Bowl. That's what everyone was putting in perspective. And I think I was too because how talented that team is around him in. But you know, with losing some players in such I'm actually kind of worried all together about this fully guaranteed contract that the Minnesota Vikings bestowed upon Kirk cousins. So. Honestly, he's dud for me. I hate to say that I think he's a great player. No. He is a great team around him. But there's something about him that brings concern to me have how he had the great team a championship team around him. Be is no one really left, and he had the same team as case keenum. Did maybe was strength the schedule. I'm not sure maybe it was the pressure. But man, I'm actually kind of. I mean worries not the right word concerned. I'm concerned about if I was picking between Kirk cousins in another quarterback to being on the quarterback is obviously. But he's not one of my first options. He would be like my last pick in the draft. If I needed a backup quarterback now. He's just that's how he's playing. He's been playing a such a disappointing fashion that it's just how it is. I can't else. But I can't explain it other than that. And the fact of the matter is it just he just didn't see Mike himself. It just it seemed like his time in. He is his time in. Washington was his prime and like now the he's losing it almost maybe not losing it. It's it's so hard to tell it's it's truly he is truly unpredictable of what he's gonna do this season. But I said if Carson Wentz was one of your options, I say, that's a pretty good idea. Maybe your second or third choice act for the quarterback position. But overall if I if cousins of I had like if I had a tough five receivers our top five quarterbacks issues that I want is my quarterback for the draft that like, okay, I want him to if he's not if he's not taking then I want him if he's taken I want that guy. You know, your backups, of course. And honestly. Kirk cousins is like seven or eight for me. Like, I think it's really all depending on who's available. I think it's a interesting scenario to seal these when it comes down to who's your top quarterbacks. But he's not on my top five. I had to pick itself. I've obviously, Patrick Mahomes is number one. I would even put Tom Brady up there. I would put. That's that's think about this. You know in a surprising move would Jimmy Garoppolo over. Kirk cousins, not because of the talent because I think Minnesota still better. But I think that Kyle Shanahan is is this offense minded coach in the NFL that he would lead Jimmy Garoppolo to a better season. I mean, he led the team with five straight wins when he was healthy. And he was doing pretty well when he was healthy before he got towards ACL. And if anyone knows how to handle a guy with that kind of injury and put them to his best performance. It's going to be a guy like. Jimmy garoppolo. So guided make Jimmy Garoppolo better is a guy like Shanahan. So I would definitely I wouldn't put on my Jimmy Garoppolo. But I would definitely put. Kirk cousins, not in there. So again, Patrick Mahomes would be in my top five. Probably Tom Brady. See bet Baker Mayfield. Put my top five. I would put Russell Wilson. Probably my top five just dumpy stuff. He's consistently good and guys or anyone else. I mean, not Jared Goff golf. Always had my doubts to be honest with ya. Drew brees. Definitely my top five who I that. I had. I forget him. Mike crazy. So yeah, definitely considering not Kirk cousins. I think I would avoid him to be completely honest with you. I think it's one of those things you're looking going. You know, what he's probably not the best guy for the job. Not the best guy to give me fantasy points. I think he's gonna manage the game. And I think that's just gonna be. He's just could be a manager of the game. And not going to be the guy that takes over the game. But he's just gotta keep the game close. I guess you can say, you know. There's nothing really much more to say about that kind of about that. But. Let's go from that to running backs Celli. I think we've talked about the quarterback onto the running backs. You know, you know, the guy that run and are in the backfield get, you know, I'm talking about you know, you know, and speaking of Patrick Mahomes with Spencer ware, still free agent and. Cream hunt. Now, a Cleveland Brown in suspended for eight games who's gonna be in that backfield. Well, Holly, Damian Williams, and yes, he had some break-up performances last year. But he wasn't the number one guy. He was never the number one guy this year. He's going to be the number one guy in Ken, he take all those carries cream hunting. Can he be evolve in the past game? Like cream hunt was and it's going to be hard to live up to the town that cream on was because so many people thought, oh this guy could be a of player the offense player of the year. And all these other accolades and was gave me like a serious franchise. Running back for with the franchise quarterback in big duo that would be dominant league for a long time. And then cream hunt. What's in that domestic salt charge in now, he's with the Cleveland Browns. So he's so that's not going to be what people thought, obviously, so is Damien Williams. To be able to handle that kind of pressure not pressure. But the hype because he's now going to be taking over as most likely the starting running back. I'm gonna say like ninety nine percent sure he's going to be the starting running back. And now he's got a be involved. Instead of like, what was it like probably twenty percent of the place. He's probably gonna be volved in seventy percent of plays. You know, he's gonna move up on. That's nap count. He's gonna move up on in the on the number of plays be on in is that could be a problem for him like that. I guess is the ultimate question. And quite frankly, I don't know this is gonna be his first real test. And what I pick him as a I think the best. I would personally pick them as backup in my running back situation. He's not going to be one of my main options. Ously I think I'd rather chub or AVI. Well. Because you're always thinking about this is like all right fighter like a middle pick in the first round pick, Damian Williams. No. Middle of the pick in the eighth round. Would I pick him? Maybe. Actually kinda probably just to have someone offensively part of the Kansas City Chiefs team. I think that would that would help a lot. But. It's interesting because this is first chest. That's basically what this is is first true test. And that that this is going to be very interesting to see how he handles the fast the the offense that is any read and with Petra Mahomes coming off his fifty touchdown season. And possibly know tyreek hill for first time. Which is also a big issue. Damian Williams might get a lot the ball. I'm more often than not him and try was calcium. I have to take a workload. So it's very interesting to see what's going to be the outcome for. Damian Williams because without tire if tyreek hill gone Chari kills suspended or cut or traded or what I what have you? He's getting a lot more looks and caney handle that that's the alternate question. It's good to be the questions at the season. Like is he going to be good enough to do this that so on and so forth? It's it's it's it's a gamble. But honestly, I think he's gonna be probably either having a record breaking year or b b. You know, what I didn't even think about this. What are what stopping the Kansas City Chiefs from signing a running back in the draft Jaffe one or picking one in free agency? That's not if okay. If deeming Williams becomes if there's no other pickups for the Kansas City Chiefs. They don't sign Spencer where which looks like they're not if they're not gonna get another running back in the free market, and they don't get one in the draft. I'm gonna say. Why why wouldn't they go for the Alabama running back? Isn't that a factor or I don't know there's a lot of options here regarding running backs when it comes to the drafter, very unpredictable. Usually they turn out. Well, if it's a first round pick. So if the chiefs do draft a running back, which they will might or defensive it really depends on what any read is looking for do. They need extra help on the often the side with possibly the lost Atari Kilby as they looked. They looked to train them. So it's not a it's not out of the window of tyreek hill not Kim city cheese by next season. So what does that mean? So are the chiefs in trouble is Patrick Mahomes in trouble having going from MVP of the holiyay to you know, becoming a one hit wonder because the team's kind of fallen apart around him. He losses running back. Well, obviously, it didn't do that much to them. But losing his wide receiver his top wide receiver and not be owned. Rely on him. When win Travis Kelsey is being covered. Triple double quadrupling. During during a play a crucial play third down play or a touchdown or red zone. Play. Who knows what's going to be the outcome? So we're at they're in a tight situation here if I ever seen one. So man, they could draw the light as well. And there's a lot of teams that looked good going into the offseason that might not be looking good. Elsewhere. Honestly, if that's the case for Kansas City, it's not their fault. First of all cream hunt. Did that to himself as well? If tyreek hill actually did abused children like learn from Adrian Peterson man while he's back to where he is now but come on don't hit. I mean, it's air easy not to hit children. But I won't get into that. Unless we the fall details of what's going on. But the regardless the players are making it. So the chiefs are falling apart due to the players not front office front office did all they good the front office did great to have build that team. But they continue to get into trouble. And also trading defor did hurt because he was the best rusher pressured. He was the best quarterback in the NFL season. In cutting the veteran just in Houston, and they get they did get of Matthew. They get the Honey badger, but they did cut Eric berry. So they did lose a veteran there as well. So it's a big question Mark, what can be the outcome for the Cassidy cheese for next season. But as for. As for dean Williams. He's getting the ball a lot. It looks like it's that way or they will draft running back and make him over Williams and David Williams. We'll get the same out of snap. Sees how he has been. But we're gonna take another short break when we come back. We'll talk about another running back and semi receivers in some tight ends.

Everyone GMC fantasy football podcast. So talked about Damian Williams we talked about. Cousins. And we talked about Carson Wentz. Let's to woman running back, and we got a breeze through the ride receivers or one particular or couple zeros, and then one particular tight end, and we can call it today. So we're sharp penny is next on the list. He was the twenty seventh overall pick in two thousand eighteen. And. Well, he was supposed to beat out. The seventh round former seventh-round picking Chris Carson, which was supposed to be the end game there. Number. That's supposed to be three hours long, by the way. If you're going to see vendors endgame when it comes out strap yourselves into long movie, but it's a good one. And. Going back to what I said there were high expectations for the first team all American pro-trump penny. Well, he broke a bone his hand in the preseason. That's what really demand. And so. Sharp penny had. Eighty five carries whereas season. Mike Davis out carried him with one hundred twelve cares. So the question, but the fact his four point nine yards for Kerry was the best among the team running backs. And he had eight point three yards per reception. This is sharp. We're talking about he did well with his with his time on the field. So does that mean he will get more opportunities in the next season is upcoming season. Will he get more snaps? I honestly do not know I think it's a bit. It's a bit of a unknown circumstance based off the fact that there is still Chris carsoup played really well last season still over thousands years and. And with that being said, it really is coming down to the point of where you're looking at any going could he have a breakout year? It's possible. I'm not saying it's impossible Kim possible. My my references are bad. If you're my for twenty to twenty five years old, you will give my references other than than you will not. Regardless back to penny. Will he have more than eighty five yards? Eighty five carries. I hope so actually I think so I think you'll get up to one hundred. I think you'll get a to one hundred carries next season due to my Davis also being gone. Hopefully, no injuries will happen to them in the upcoming season. If it's in preseason. And. With that. I also want to look at the point of where he did have the best. He did have the best. Yard precarious them on the running backs. So why not give them one hundred carries? I mean last season. Chris Carson had two hundred and forty seven carries in his he had a thousand plus season. So if you minus I don't know. Let's say the even though they both get the one hundred and fifty carries each. I don't think both will get a thousand yards to that. But I think they both get like eight fifty is that is that crazy that is that crazy to predict I don't think that's that crazy to predict because I think they're both very talented. I think Chris Carson's get is you see thinking about this. Now, they if they both split the carries. I think they would have out even number of yards. But I think due to the fact that he had a thousand plus yard season. Chris Carson saying I think it's good to be the same as before. But I do think Chris Carson. We'll get the brunt of the carries. But we're sharp penny would get it. He gets at least one hundred and ten all say the over under. There was an over owner of one hundred carries. I'll say he gets over about one hundred and ten carries for shop penny. So. I'm thinking that's a pretty good flex. Honestly. I would say Chris Carson's a better flex but being say based off rounds, and he'll probably be taken a little bit higher than Rashar penny would. So if you're looking for a late round steel for a flex player. In a guy. That's good for by we kind of running back. Shop penny might be your dive. I I was high on him when he was in college was the first American I liked him Alon college. And it's safe to say that he could do the same thing. He key could revitalize for this season. He didn't play bad last season. He just didn't get a lot of touches. So. I don't see the harm in picking penny on your finish team. I would see the harm. If you drafted him in the first round. I would see the problem if you drafted him in the top five rounds, but let's say six below. Yeah. Why not? I don't see the problem there. Like, I just seem as a late round pick. I don't I think he's just a positive flex player that can. Basically, I seem as a positive player that can give you some points. When you need a couple of, you know. He's a reliable. I feel like he can be a reliable flex player reliable bench. Like, you won't say, oh, I wish I started him on this day. But you're gonna say, oh, he did pretty good about loading points. I say like he gave you saw it eleven fifteen points. Not a game. But I would say probably every couple of games. I say he's worse probably up to that point where like he gets two or three points. But he does have like a he has high probably like twenty five and I'd say his his medium is probably like he can probably get you around fifteen points when you need it. And I think that's good enough for those late round picks. You know, I think that's. I think that's what you want and longer when it comes down to the last final picks. So moving from that too. Wide receivers. This guy has been a serious question. Mark for me for longtime. Alan Robinson, the the the for his first season. Chicago was mixed. He keeps secured fifty five of ninety four targets for seven hundred and fifty four yards and four touchdowns and thirteen games. Well, those are like actually acceptable like. Yeah. Okay. Cool. Cool. But he did sign a three year forty two million dollar contract. So Dave was probably not as what they wanted. Well, he did spent a he spent the year coming back for many seal tear that he sustained at the start of the twenty seventeen season. And then he got hip groin in ribbon. Juries the cost him three games in nagged him throughout the this in Chicago. And new offense working within a sophomore quarterback in Mitch Mitchell Trubisky. You know? You know, he wasn't STAN Chicago in Jacksonville going to new team is always a drag when it comes down to new offense scheme, and what have you? So I guess the question is. Is he? The guy you want on your starting lineup. See that's a tricky one say the least. But you know, if I'm passing or cash in on this guy. I'm passing. I don't think that he's worth a bench spot. I don't think because he has so little in far in between. Breakout games that it's a serious concern to me, and I wouldn't want. I would rather have someone who consistently gets ten to fifteen points or fifteen to eighteen points rather than someone that can get twenty five to thirty points or on a great day or go down to five five to eight and not contribute at all. I don't want that risk. I feel like that's too risky. So yeah, I think of it as more of a. More of a too much of a gamble for me personally. So I mean. I mean like I said he could go breakout with Mitch driven scepter second year coming back. That's that could totally happen. But again, I like it's too much of a gamble for me. Personally. Well, I had the other riders put on here was Doug Baldwin, but he just had surgery. He's having surgery for a sports hernia in April. And expected have quote some challenges to overcome getting healthy. So bottom line is I say avoid Doug Baldwin. He's having surgery in April two close to come for comfort. I'm uncomfortable. Then for tight end. This one is interesting to sit. This one is actually pretty intriguing Delaney Walker as he has been very reliable last couple of years. Having played in at least fifteen games and scored over insecure over one hundred receptions are secure. I'm sorry. I said that wrong. Let me go back. He has secured over one hundred targets sixty receptions in eight hundred yards in all of his last four healthy seasons prior twenty eighteen. He his best season was ninety four. Catch a thousand eight yards six touchdowns. He's in twenty fifteen. And. Early in the season. It ended poorly. He suffered an ankle injury. That ended his season. And it seems like he's ready to get back for twenty nineteen and he's pretty optimistic about what the future holds. There are some good people are liking his chances getting back on track to where he was before. But. You know, he's gonna be thirty five when we one happens in twenty nineteen and he's coming off a season ending injury last season. To an ankle which will slow him down indefinitely and design make him less of a threat when it comes down to receiving the ball and catch the ball because he's too small to be a blocking tight tight end as well. He's coming off an eagle injury. So tight blocking going to be as strong suit. He's always going to be a receiving guy. But with an ankle injury getting over that is one thing. But then he's thirty five he's going to be thirty five at least see with that age. It worries me, but Marcus mariota has always relied on Delaney Walker since he got drafted to the titans. So honestly. He wouldn't be the worst pickup. Not. He would be your first tight. And you would honestly think about selecting but coming off an injury and being thirty five. And then there's the kid George kiddle from San Francisco who's completely the opposite healthy coming off a record breaking year and extremely young. Honestly, I seem going on drafted. But I will say this. If you do draft Leany Walker as your tight end, it's not a bad choice. Like, I said, Marcus mariota. He's like his security blanket. If you will he's one of the most reliable guys that he's throwing the ball to. He catches lies like before. He can't he's our just sixty percent of his catches out of his targets. He catches the ball. Sixty percent of the time out of one hundred after hundred cats. After one hundred targets. He catches sixty of them. So the stat speak for themselves the average week for themselves. So he can produce the absolutely one hundred percent can produce. And you know, what if Kittles taken Erz is taken e bronze taken and Kelsey taken. If he's the he's in my top five he'll be my number five, titan selected. I'm going on a limb right now, that's how much faith. I have in his consistent. Offense with the team as well as Marcus mariota. But that's the key argument. Iota starting in not Ryan tannehill. Then I would definitely say yes, you can pick up. Delaney Walker late in the draft probably last pick in steel him the last round. But if it's Ryan tannehill that turns out to be the starter, which doesn't look like it's going to happen. But you know, gotta look at all possibilities than a void. Then avoid Delaney. Walker avoid tines in general. But that's how I say about all those and those are the unpredictable guys for this season for me personally. And that is our show today. Thank you so much for joining us. And actually this could be my last fantasy football show as my contract has expired. In after at the end of this month. So I just wanna say the bottom of my heart.

AP Laboratory - Chiefs-Broncos game preview (Ep. 99)

"What's up everybody? Thanks for joining us today. This is the AP laboratory it's eight-game preview edition addition getting you ready for chiefs broncos party to very excited to talk about this one here to help me talk about this game. I find him on twitter at chief in Carolina all the way from Carolina Matt Lane Polo. My friend how are you a good begging sure. I I do all my preparations. In just in case of the broncos wind and somehow shake up the entire division like coralline Sutton's telling us does does Cortlandt site and think that they can instill win the West. It's a big shakeup if you go from like third in the division to slightly less third in the division. That's what he's aiming for war but also with US Craig's out platinum on twitter barley hop than big. I'm doing fantastic. I saw a ESPN playoff machine that. Hey broncos fan had run earlier today that was explaining how they can make the playoffs at eight and the various scenarios that needed to happen guys. It's a very very long logic train. So that should tell you where the Broncos are with Cortlandt Sutton statements and what the fans are saying there they should just be grasping onto drew. Lock now and looking forward to next year but they're still living in the now so actually. The cheese crops told them hopefully. We can grasp on the drew lock. But we'll talk about the defense later. We got to talk about the offense. I just I just refer shake things up like the division. No rundown is locked and loaded so three story storylines on offense. We'll start with this chiefs had some success in the first half against the New England patriots. Matty can they build off that success. Yes certainly hope so. I think once you get rid of that kind of I drive where the Patriots came out and they look to really throw off. Patrick Mahomes a little bit. Just the way they were playing ignores Less man coverage than we've seen all year and we especially saw from the Patriots last year led to an easy interception for the Patriots from Patrick Mahomes but after after that the first half off into the look good. It looked a lot more similar to what we saw last year. There wasn't a huge big shots. Downfield the vertical shots and that's because the Patriots were tried to take it away but we got some good Andy Reid we got some more short passes we got some more passes that were getting into intermediate areas. It seemed like it was a game plan plan designed to help get some easy throws for Patrick Mahomes to build a little bit of rhythm and despite the fact that he's bailing out of pockets. The interior offensive line's out playing particularly. Well they were able to get some rhythm throws converts third downs. They're getting some help. That kind of went away in the second half trying to note the lead Patrick Mahomes hand was hurting them. A little bit he couldn't really grip ripple and rip it Downfield. So you just want to throw away the second half but you hope to build on that first half says the first time I think we saw chiefs offense. It seemed to be executing from the coaches is down to the players on the relatively consistent basis. Yeah I and we saw the the motion from tyreek Hill. I think it was like the second play of the game aim. We got to see that orbit motion kind of inter- it's way back into the chiefs lexicon again and I started a little excited because I expected. Good Andy Playbook now. There were some extenuating circumstances. That we're GONNA talk about here next. But I do feel like he called a good game plan. Honestly against the broncos in the first first matchup I felt like it was a pretty good game plan as well I. It wasn't very deep necessarily out of Patrick Mahomes. But he was ten for eleven for seventy six yards hours before he went out hurt after. This was the game that he went out. Hurt and Matt Moore finished but they moved the ball really really well. They got a touchdown a few goal they were within field goal range before Matt Moore came in. I think that Andy saw some stuff on tape that he could exploit out of VIC Fangio. I don't think that they really ran it. After Matt Moore came in the game very interested to see if we see maybe the playbook he was planning to use a little more of the first first time that they played against this team. I had a tweet saved up in my drafts. During that broncos game and it was basically something to the effect of mahomes is Alex better than Alex ever did during the Broncos game. Because it's true I mean he was Kinda just I mean he was just shooting the easy stuff sharp on the easy stuff and I think you kind of. I think you might see a little bit of that too especially considering the hand injury injury that we are about to talk about. You know it's been the most popular Nian Kansas City. It's been the most popular ankle in Kansas City. And now what's the most popular hand in Kansas City. Patrick mahomes his thirty injury of the season that we know of a bruised battered right hand. Apparently it was swollen all week up until yesterday when mom's finally was able to grip of football that's comforting is very apparent that mahomes was nursing in hand injury because there was some opportunities that he just flat out missed and I think is because he was timid to challenge down the field They were just trying to get out of dodge alive. Thank God the defense played the way they did this week against the Patriots. It's going to be you know it's going to be interesting to see how the cheese balance trying to have a rhythm flow To this offense you know getting a good rhythm do the things that you know that they can. They need to do to win a football game but also with with in the back of your mind. That Patrick Mahomes hand his bruising bruising pretty bad and and hopefully they can manage that mattie think like you said they were trying to get out of dodge they had the lead they were just trying to prolong or shorten the game ups. They get out of there as chief had to throw the ball. Union sold them have a little bit of success until the Travis Kelsey fumble. They were finding ways to make it work. which is something? I don't think you can say they'd done a really good job of the last couple weeks. Unfortunately this is the fourth maybe fifth game this year. We've talked about Andy Reid. The coaches just trying to get out out of dodge. Because they don't like how the game's going whether it's wind whether it's the field the leg this that there's a lot of games with the chiefs that we've kind of made excuses. That makes sense so so maybe even excuses that had a reason for why the chiefs or try not to play the real offense anymore and it just it is a fan and somebody that watches the team you would like to see them. Flex the real offense you would like to get to see the often show up at some level of consistency. Hopefully mahomes hand is good enough to do that. Against the broncos give us another half that just who says hey. We're still here. We're still top to your offense and we don't want to just see them trying to get through the game as quickly as possible running for two yards and nothing else they definitely have not touched that hand at all this week like they're. I'm sure that this is the lightest workload glowed that we've seen Outta Patrick mahomes since you know the knee that you know. They've ankle and all of that like they don't probably want him throw in too terribly much this week. I imagine that they are protecting that. And shielding it as much as possible. One thing just tag onto matty's comment here about how there's there's you know there's always something that's coming up got it's GonNa snow and reportedly it's GonNa be a decent amount of snow in Kansas City. We might be talking about the grip of Patrick Mahomes in the snow coming up here so he still recovering from and now field lose leaking already just chop this game out the window Eddie. Reid might come out of this game. AM saying yeah. The hand was bothering him a little bit. Plus it was cold so it was really tough for him to grip the ball. which is to say that? It's not an excuse. It very well might might be a reason behind it but there's yet another thing that could be going on this weekend. All the adversity all of it all of the the battle. I don't know what will they ever do. Third storyline is something that is finally starting to make its rounds. Sounds around the around here in Kansas City. And that's the pocket management of Patrick. Mahomes if you've been listening to this show for the last three weeks or so. You've probably heard US discussing it I I. It's it's it's something that's valid with what you're seeing with Patrick. Mahomes it's inconsistent season the drop inconsistencies navigating the pocket when the step up when to bail out when the backup all that Kinda stuff. He's just there's there's a lot of inconsistencies in what you're seeing. I think you Kinda saw. I think he kind of started to see it. Before you know I think you start to see a little bit of I don't want to call it Lazy Eh. But I think you kind of started to see his drops being a little inconsistent and and some of his footwork stepping into throws Before you really saw some of these more egregious mistakes navigating the pocket and I think it's kind of been a slow burn into this and you know it's something that it sounds like mahomes is very cognizant of because they're being outward it facing about it. They're being public about it You're seeing him admit that he's been a little bit off he's starting to you know fall off of his mechanic's a little bit in the back end of the season and I'm sure a lot of these injuries and a lot of things that he's dealing with dull help because you're thinking about other things in you know the mechanical breakdowns and those kind of things happen when you're tired or when you're you're dealing with some pain and stuff like that so I think that might be part of what you're seeing but you're mahomes has has got to be a little bit more consistent today or this week. He's got to be more consistent this week. It's gotta be working system moving forward a Alleviate some of the problems that they've experienced to this point offensively. Because like I you know we talk about the offense and they have a lot of issues but it's not like it's just play for play for play for play for play for play it's just it's just egregious regis in bad offense and bad play calling and all that stuff. There's always like you know there's a couple good place during the they just have been able to string things together and some consistency with some of the mechanics and stopping in some of the drops. And all that kind of thing with homes really could help them string together. More plays more consistent drives. Now what really focus on that for a second. Because I was talking a little negatively and being kind of out there with all the reasons for mahomes that she's often struggles Rosen while I do think they're getting played up a little bit much and it's probably more likely to cheese just simply are playing as good a football is they have last year. I think that's the bigger reason reason rather than the leg the win the dirt so on and so forth. It's not like the offense is bad. This is still a very good office this office silly top five ish offense in the NFL so it just lacks consistency and it seems to lack rhythm especially from drive to drive. A big part of. That is how Patrick Mahomes is handling the pocket and it's not all his fault. This interior offensive line is not good. It has not been good all year. There's been a few other guy. Are Few guys shuffled in out. That weren't starters. They don't have a lot of continuity together and even in places where they do you're simply not good L. D. T.. Not Good not good at all been saying for a couple of weeks now. He is not playing while while. Andrew Wylie took a step back from last year. Austin writers just not good enough at center to help cover for both of those guys or even one of those guys. He's just kind of their A placeholder so you don't have good interior offensive line. You get a quarterback that's taken a Lotta hits this year that's been under pressure. He's panicking a little bit. He's giving out of the pocket get he's getting the ball. Throwing it off. Platform key needs to trust them. He's admitted it. And it's not so it's GonNa fix overnight. They just got a slowly start working on that working on keeping him a little bit more the pocket help those tackles out a little bit. Because you're starting to see even fisher shorts. Give up a few more. What looked to be pressures? Patrick mahomes tries to retreat over a pocket. That's either collapsing lapsing or not. We're not even getting to see. It's you just hope to see improvement on that this week. I think got a little better last week but everyone can point to a couple of big issues that tyreek Hill in the end zone there was another one early in the game on a deeper pass to Travis. Kelsey where he was moving when he didn't need to be moving out of the pocket but it looks like it's getting a little better. You just WanNa keep seeing that continue as the season goes on. Yes he knows it he he said it basically unprompted this week like they asked him. You know yeah the offense. It's still score in and Kinda move on the ball but you know it's not as efficient as we've we've grown accustomed to it being at. He just unprompted prompted said. That's on me. which is Andy Reid Ism but then went into why you know discussed how old habits die hard fans up thrown off of his back foot just because that's kind of breakdown mechanics? He's not doing the little stuff right. He admitted all that wind all of that and then went forward to say that he trusts interior offensive line. which no definitely not? He doesn't play football he definitely doesn't and yeah it's because of writer Wiley and in L.. DT who apparently the entire Internet caught up this week and finally like focused on the interior offense of aligned with. Oh Wow he's he's been bad. You know so we. We got to kind of see a culmination of all of that. All of those issues compounded did the Broncos are going to try and take advantage that Vic Fangio was going to really trying to focus on bringing the heat in the interior especially so they've got to be not much better this week okay. Let's go with players to watch Craig while my player to watch this week is going to be Spencer ware. Spencer where got a lot got more run than I think that they were expecting Eric. B Enemy said that they they got or they weren't expecting him to get that kind of workload and that he just kept coming to the sidelines. Say No I'm good. I feel healthy. I'm ready to go. And they spoke to Darwin Thompson this week as well and talked about pass protection and the game speed up up slowly for him. I think that we're going to see plenty of Spencer where this week. Still even with Damian Williams returned so I would expect him to rotate Tade in a little bit. He just might have a little bit fresher legs than some of these guys who has been through a season long kind of workload and so they trust him enough to put them out there. Help protect Patrick Mahomes. I expect that we're going to see a little bit more Spencer where this week. Mike Mike I Watch is going to be tyreek Hill. I think we talked about it a little bit at the beginning here Craig did tire killed. They start using them emotional more. That's a good way to kind of identify. The coverage urged also get on the move harder for teams to send extra attention to him. Make things open up a little bit easier. A don't I like Vic Fangio as defensive coach. He's just not a bill belichick level. They are not going to be able to contain tyreek hill as well as the patient. Sit on those underneath passes since hills. Come back he hasn't connected on one of those deep eight bombs with Patrick Mahomes. I think they're gonNA find ways to get him in space underneath. They're gonNA find ways to attack vertically. I'm interested to see if the broncos are gonNA play a lot of zone coverage like they normally do or they're gonNA stick mostly demand coverage like they have the past against the chiefs biggest tyreek hill. Mu Seen tyreek hill. Beat Chris Harris before I imagine the the same thing would happen if Chris Harris Junior has all across the field in man coverage again as long as patrimony as a time to get the ball to him by guy is Laurent du Vernay Tardif He's a guy you know. I posted something earlier this week. Talking about potential candidates I think L.. DT's a potential essential cut candidate. He has played in sixty percent of the games that he's been eligible for since signings extension. And he hasn't been particularly good. I think I I'm I think he's kind of playing for his job. The back half of this back stretch of the season and you know if you have questions about L. D.. I think think just wash. Just try to watch him a little bit today or on Sunday and just see what you get out of them and and see if you think that he's playing to a level that That is earned him nine million dollars next season. He's going to be one of the more fascinating cases for this team to kind of navigate through when it comes to their roster decisions because they can save day five million dollars against the cat by releasing.

Chief team the defensive team now obviously really And I think we gotta start with drew. Lock drew lock is Is Making I believe his third start of these of his career local kids going to be really really cool story I. I'm sure it's going to mean a lot to drew lock but hopefully it doesn't mean a Wayne Craig. What have you seen from July? So far. We're we're all kind of got to see drew lock senior bowl last year and Missouri. Fans are very familiar with them. He's got arm talent. He's got mobility. He's got the ability to make the throws that they're asking them to do. They have not given him layups in his two games back. It's not like they're making things easy on him him. He's throwing a lot of contested balls thrown into windows. They're going downfield regularly and they're running a lot of to who back pistol all of the sudden and running read option throw in deep throws out of it like this is a completely different offense ends than the one that we saw the cheese play earlier. This season Joe flacco stood in the pocket as a statue. Drew Lock is not necessarily A. Hey great diagnosis of pressure blitzes and things like that which can come into play as far as the rush plan and everything like that for Spagnolo but he is a lot more mobile will he can get outside the pocket. He can avoid pressure and he can make throws down the field. That's going to give the chiefs a little bit more fits I think running this to back pistol. Who is going to give the chiefs a lot? More looks that they have to take you know. Keep accounting for and they also run a lot of heavy personnel Philip. Lindsey has been the biggest benefactor for drew. Lock being there. Because they've been able to keep that extra safety out of the box force guys deeper and you know this. This read option is really opened. Things up foreman. That's because lock is so good at running it. Thus far the thing with drew lock is he will look over easy stuff to try to biddable downfield into a tight window a turned out to make some highlight those doing so. He's also made some very ugly passes already in his young. NFL career. That I think have have been glossed over with some of his really decisions. Really poor throws of got glossed over just because he has a lot of highlight those. They've been winning he's his stat. Line hasn't looked terrible. He's made some really good highlights. If people have kind of glossed over some ugly interceptions and ugly throws I think the way the chiefs defense is playing right now. The Way Steve spangles dialing stuff up lately Ariza game where the NFL's going to catch the July a little bit He's going to see a lot of different looks. He's going to see a lot of different pressure. Think you're gonNA see some plays where the chiefs show pressure drop drop a Lotta guys in coverage they really challenge drew lots mental acuity here. If he's ready for it and I expect them to see look like a rookie quarterback that fell out of the first round this week. It so drew lock when you're when we were evaluating them back during draft season it's he. He's a very very polarizing game to game. So you know some games you would see. You'd see some things it'd be really impressed by what you were seeing. And you'd like this guy understand why people would want to take a chance on them and then and you would just see some games and it was just. It was really bad in it was a lot of you know not handling pressure well and trying to throw balls off your back foot and make hero ball all plays and there's a lot of that to his game where you know. There's some inconsistencies that I if you're getting a bad drew lock game. You're you're you're good shape I do think I think a lot of it fell on the mental side. If he wasn't seeing things clear he would get a little bit rattled back there. If he was facing pressure it wasn't always pretty wasn't finding his outlets. So there's I think there's some inconsistencies that you can attack and I I do agree. I think it's just GONNA be trying to try to mess with him on the mental side of things. Whether it's you know mixing looks up Showing pressure bailing out I I maybe trying to bring some you know some some blitzes from your secondary players. I think some of those kind of things you know. Just make him make him think through the game and you should have some success S.. I think and I think cease bag teams more than up for it. I think they continue to build off what they've been doing. In one of the things that they can do is affect the passer Asir and last time the chiefs played. This football team was one of the more enjoyable defensive performances. We've adults these and obviously it was. There was there's something there's a cloud hanging over the entire game that was Patrick Mahomes kneecap but I mean the defense. They got After Joe FLACCO Craig. Can they repeat that performance again. I don't think that they're going to end up with nine sacks again this week vomit insanity but yes they can kit kit map both alluded to it there. He does not handle pressure. Dr Drew Lock like the lock onto a guy particularly downfield. He will stare somebody down and he'll lock onto it downfield. He doesn't move through his progressions particularly well and win the pressure comes. He'll throw it anyway. He's not going to sit there and eat a sack. He's going to trust his arm to fit it into a window that maybe not there. They the interception through against the Texans where the safety rotate and early early early towards the receiver for an corner undercutting the receiver. He threw it anyway. Safety Jumps at easiest pick in the world for that safety. It's just. He makes a lot of questionable decisions because that pressure pressure was in his face and so he just tried to uncork it any way rather than eating the sack living to see another day I expect that the chiefs pass rush is is going to be able to dial some stuff up. SPAG knowle's going to bring some blitzes and things like that to really bring the right kind of pressure. The question mark is Frank Clark. If we're going to see him this week he's got a stomach issue of some kind. That won't go away enough for them to have to bring him to a specialist. Clark needs to show up Clark needs to be there because I feel like he wrecked that game against Denver he can wreck it again. And if we get the Alex before that we got against New England it's going to be very very long day for drew lock. So here's the thing about the Denver broncos offensive line Garrett Bowles is really really bad at football it may not be their worst offensive lineman so yet the pass rush should still be pretty good this week. I don't think you're going to get a repeat of nine tax. Joe FLACCO simply cannot move his feet I think once he drops back they get stuck in the ground. His cleats might be like four inches long or something. I'm not sure he doesn't move. Drew Walk will vote he will fade back and he will throw a ball off his back foot with absolutely no momentum in it and he will do that time and time again to try to get away from pressure sure. He's able to escape some saks. There's probably going to be some pressures that he gets away from a throw off. He is a little gutsy he can sit in there sometimes. Throw it but for the most part. He's going to shy highway from getting hit. He's GONNA rush throws he still gonNA try to squeeze men there you've got to put pressure on lock and you're GONNA get good results even if they aren't sacks. I think that he gets away for more Saxon. FLACCO did but the pass rush is going to be a problem. And I don't think it's just GONNA be your defensive line. But the way they've been blitzing their safeties their linebackers in But successes they had against the Broncos last time I would expect to see plenty of that again. I think it's still going to be a story. You just probably won't see you know nine sacks pop up all the statute again it will be nine sacks but I think the pressure can still do the same kind of job that you saw. I think there's there you know I. I don't think drew lock has seen enough in this league to be able to to to make enough decisions under pressure and if they can put more pressure on on him they're going to be just fine Courtroom Sutton is beyond besides guaranteeing a victory Against the Kansas City chiefs in Arrowhead did with a rookie quarterback against a team. That is finally starting to play a better especially defensively Besides guaranteeing those victories. He's playing football football. His Sophomore Year has really really come on strong. Having a really strong strong season he present some problems. He's a very good football player. Matty Colon Sutton's like the opposite of Garrett Bowles as in like he's good at not really really bad it football and with his size and he's he's he's not the most technical route runner but he understands how to use his size his a little bit of acceleration that he has to get positioning. He's really good attacking the ball near. I think if if drew lock is willing to test the chiefs quarters which he most likely will be if July can handle the pressure. That she's on coincides GonNa get some fifty fifty opportunities. He's GonNa get some chances to make plays over. Various Ward Shot Bruin Morris Claiborne. They should be able to attack him his size. His abilities at the catch point are going to be a problem. I don't think the chiefs are going to go out of their way to add specific extra helped Like they did Julie. Eshelman think on the outside. He's GonNa be isolated plenty plenty of times and if the chiefs can't figure out a way to stop them. That could make the game a little bit closer than it needs to be. He's just implying that. Go to football us kind of have to rely on your cornerbacks who've been playing better to make a couple of plays just make it look less appealing to keep throwing up. Fifty fifty balls of cortlandt sought missed. The game goes on the way that the broncos use cortlandt Portland Sutton. He's a very good player but they a lot of times. We'll go thirteen personnel and have Colin Sutton. beat the only dude on the outside side and I want to read you guys do. Do you guys happen to know who the other Denver broncos wide receivers are because Emmanuel Sanders was the other guy opposite of of him the first matchup and got plenty targets. Do you guys know any of the other. DENVER broncos receivers juwan Winfrey Day. Sean Ham say Bachand Hamilton. Tin Patrick yes. Actually three deontay Spencer Fred Brown or the other. I do know those. That's where I was that. Yeah no that's that's actually really good. That's randers right on rag Ted. Yeah that's not a murderer's ro of wide receivers. Though like they are not going to its own accountants. Those those are all almost all accounting's IT'S GONNA be a lot of Noah fant it's going to be a lot of Jeff your troika. Golly Andrew back there fullback is been a lot lot more integrated lately too. I but Portland Sutton is really the only guy on the outside other you know they line up out there but Portland sons the only the guy that they really have to worry about that can do damage in the air on the outside as a wide receiver and yet drew lock is GonNa throw him just as much as Joe. FLACCO ECHO did high volume guy so if he can get on the same page as drew lock he could wreck the game a little bit yeah. Why don't you talk to Fred Brown in and accounts payable okay? Let's go to players to watch All three players Craig who you watch it okay. I know we're not supposed to do this. But I'm watching tire and Matthew. He's the quarterback of the defense. We we said we weren't doing those anymore. tyronn Matthew is going going to get a pick this week. I feel very confident in that I. They have used Iron Matthew really well. He is playing some of the best football ball that we've seen out of a safety in years. I I mean every berry in his. Brian Fantastic. I'm not saying he's up to that level but tyronn Aaron Matthew is locked in. He's got everybody on the same page his attitude the impact that he's having on the game even though it may not seem like it like he's not post in the major stats. He's not post in these big picks and everything like that. He is absolutely blanketing guys out of the game. And they're using him as a major weapon and drew lock is going to have to diagnose these coverages try and find open guys because Spagnolo is going to drop these guys into exotic looks to confuse refuse him. He's GonNa get one he's GonNa give one right to tire and Matthew. I fully expect Matthew to have a big game both on the all. Twenty thirty two and in the box score like Craig said the broncos will use some thirteen personnel. They're gonNA use a lot of twelve personnel. They're going to get multiple tight ends out there. They're gonNA have running backs get out the routes so I'm looking at the cheese best coverage linebacker pretty closely and no now neiman starting weakside linebacker Damian Amien Wilson. Not The three down Mike. They Anthony Hitchens. But the Sam Reggie Ragland is GonNa see a lot more snaps this week than he normally gets with. That heavier heavier broncos personnel. He's obviously gonNA be relied on the run game. He was set a really hard edge against the Patriots like he had a phenomenal game. Vote against the run in the past. He said a good edge. He did a good job in pursuit. When they're letting be aggressive but more than anything else Reggie Ragland understands football in coverage he might not be in the lead athlete but he understands his coverage responsibilities responsibilities and he works through his progressions his keys? Real fast you WANNA try to hit the chiefs flats. That's fine. Just don't do it at Reggie Ragland because you can ask James White. How that goes you take a pretty good lick? Because he's closed on you fast. Reggie Ragland made splash plays in his tenure with the chiefs and coverage. I know we don't think of him as a coverage linebacker but he's made some really nice plays. I liked it. They're going to be forced to put him on the field in this game a little bit more because I think he really can have an impact Craig wild that tyrant. Massey's getting interception this week. So as Reggie. I think we're GONNA have to sweep it because it's crazy because one tornadoes getting an interception this week to oh I thought frank was getting another one now. May maybe one thornhill. I think he's really coming along Week to week. I think you're seeing him getting a little bit better. I think the communication you know as you saw the last time these. This team was at home You saw him make a big play I think he gets another big play against an AFC west West opponents you know. Two thousand eighteen wasn't and a great year for Brett. Vh But two thousand nineteen look pretty good for him tired. Matthew Frank Clark quite the haters want thornhill all these guys. I I really like what I'm seeing with. This group want thornhill. I'm expecting to have an interception this week to. Let's go the predictions Greg. Well apparently Oy Anita Justice and drew lock throwing eighteen interceptions on Sunday three youths just three. It's as good as eighteen. Two hundred zone. It's crazy readies. Returning his for a seventy five yard. Pick Sake oh you guys have no idea the kind of backflips that I'm going to be doing I ab- censoring that. Making making that family friendly there. Can we call Reggie big sexy. Can we motion motion to call him. Big Sexy moving forward. I mean we I have been. I don't know what you guys are talking about so predictions for the game. I I I do think that this is going to stay a little close early. I think the broncos GonNa pull out all the stops try and pull up bunch of misdirection get Philip Lindsay into space. I think that this game is maybe like a fourteen ten game midway through the second quarter and its back. Noah makes the adjustments US mints. The offense continues to click. I I've got this as a thirty five twenty game with the other ten of those points coming in garbage time for the broncos but but I do think that there will be the start of this game. It's going to be a big feeling out period with a new offense and then eventually this defense will takeover give the ball back to the offense. Allow them to put some points on the board I think the brokers come and they're going to give the chiefs their all. You've already seen it again chippiness now that they've got a new quarterback they're playing well. They're feeling themselves themselves a little bit. They've been talking this week up to the game. They're feeling it drew locks coming home so on and so forth I'd only cheap. They're going to get complacent after his patriots game. I don't think subtype leaders. They now have in the locker room. I think they're still going to be plenty hungry. They're going to want it just as bad and like we've been talking about this whole time. I think Steve Spangles in put a lot AGILA. He's going to give him a lot of a lot more to the chargers of the Texans did he's GonNa make him really work for it. I think it's going to be evident from the GEICO achieve. Jump about two a solid early lead. You see them throw the offense neutral like they like to do in the second half of coast to a double digit victory chiefs. Twenty seven Broncos. Thirteen eighteen team picks. Reggie pick six. We've called it already. But not close this week chiefs are gonNA dominate the broncos like they have in the past so the chiefs are going to start hot. What They're going to score two touchdowns early it's going to be fourteen to nothing After Awan Thornhill pick six two six six The offense that the the offense is gonNA score another another two touchdowns late in the game. The they're not going to score in the entire fourth quarter and the broncos are going to get a garbage time it's garbage time touchdown. Twenty eight seventeen. Kansas City chiefs get their tenth win of the season are. That's going to do it for the game preview episode this week for the AP laboratory we will be back later to Next week to so you Do Mail back this catch.

Top 12 RB of 2020 Fantasy Football Season Episode 025

"Welcome. To fantasy football over time podcast, I'm your host Jigs Isky with me as always are Tyler Hollerbach and Matt Win. Episode Number Twenty five we hit the quarter century mark. We're going to continue our positional breakdown last week we did the tight end episode. This time we're running through running backs the best position in fantasy football before we get started though want WanNa get you guys to thoughts Miami Dolphins offense according to Your said that the roles are not defined on the team. What are you guys take that with Jordan Howard? I don't really like it 'cause Tyler Niveau been big on Jordan Howard lately so Thought that his role isn't defined is not something you want to hear as we're a month away from the season. Yeah definitely. Something you do not want to hear he was definitely a sleeper rb to that I was going to have in every league but that definitely puts them worry in and kind of have to reevaluate where that kind of sleeper Arbutus. GonNa come from late in the take it's better actually said that Kaelin Balaj wants they want to use Keelan? What do you guys think about that? I. Think. that. Caleb Lage's one of the worst running back all of football. So that doesn't make any sense to me. Just when you think the dolphins are finally like getting on the right track making a lot of good moves they remind you that they are still the Miami Dolphins. Yeah. I. Have Them as division Champs, but they're not going to do with Balaj that is going to get them a last place finish if they're using him definitely questions all things dolphins now it does you know I'm sorry guys jumped into it. Even ask you how you're doing today. How are you guys? I am exhausted this moving process house projects is crazy. Walk up the other morning fridge wasn't Oregon. So had to get a new one of those. Oh, the joys of being a homeowner never ending. Yeah. Congratulations on the new home tyler other than that. Is it rewarding yet? Like are you starting to feel good about it? The thing I feel really good about is the Roomba watching that thing clean for hours watch it just do it's magic if it's anything like me, you're GonNa Watch that room for a couple of weeks. It was so fun by Rubel who needs cable when you gotTa Roomba, right? All Right Matt I. Know You've got some news for us. Let's jump into it. Yeah we got some over time news as always, and we have a team that has continuously been making headlines and it is the Washington football team I'm proud of you. I really thought you were GONNA say Redskins Nope I restrained myself football team or football club or I wrote football club, and then I switched it to team midway through that sentence. So I guess I don't even Know for sure it's team because I. Think if it's Club, they'd be talking about soccer either way it's a stupid name they got to come up with something better dairies Geiss was arrested and charged with counts of strangulation, assault, battery, and destruction of property that stem from three separate domestic violence incidents. He was released the following day. He has played five games in his career you guys. Is this the end of Darius Geiss? He's dead to me yeah. I think this does it for his career which is unfortunate. You Never WanNa see you know off the field issues be the reason for a year ending shorter but I do think that this ends ends his career he slid fifty nine th pick in the two thousand, eighteen draft DUDA character concerns. So this really isn't all. That surprising there's a lot of teams that didn't want to touch him. In the first place. We have seen numerous players get additional chances but when you pair his injury history with this criminal history that's just come to light I honestly don't think we're gonNA see dairy guys in the NFL. Again, I don't ever want to see him in the NFL again with that kind of shenanigans. Yeah. Like I said I thi-, this does it for him. I, think his injury history like you said, it's I don't see him playing other another down in the NFL. Finally, we have the belt period that come and gone. That was a stressful period for a lot of owners hoping that their players would opt out a total of sixty seven players ended up opting out some of the notable players for fancy purposes were Damian Williams obviously he was the most important player definitely skyrocket C. H. Value and then Albert Wilson and Alan hearns the Miami Dolphins wide receivers not like you were going to. Draft, either one of them, but it does boost up devante Parker and Preston Williams just a little bit if you're hi Matt Brita, he might get additional targets out of the backfield. So there is some fantasy relevance there but none of the huge names none of the huge stars ended up opting out here's a question for you guys if someone were DA opt out to boost another fantasy players, who do you want it to be i? Would've said Marlin Mac just same thing with Damien Williams just boost Jonathan Taylor that that would have been the one the big one I think or Naim hines. For me it one hundred percent would be Nick Chubb opt out let Kareem Hunt Run wild all day the I think that's what I meant. Nick opt out the Kareem Hunt show shall we move onto our running back consensus rankings? Yes we should before we do kind of want to just give a breakdown of the running back position in two, thousand nine and kind of what to expect twenty twenty because it leads right into our episode. So last year there was a two hundred and thirty one point differential between rb one. Rb Twelve that's Christian McCaffrey Increase Carson that. Was the largest margin in fantasy history by far. It'll never be beaten and it's entirely because Christian. McCaffrey had the best fantasy season of all time last year. McCaffrey at four, hundred, fifty, six points the running backs nine and ten were Alvin. Kamara in saquon Barkley and combined they had four hundred and seventy points. So they were right in line with just McCaffrey he was on twenty five point four percent of championship teams in two, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety two, which is absolutely absurd. Basically, if you drafted McCaffrey, you had a very, very good chance of making your championship and. Winning it. The last thing that I want to say about this, which is crazy is there has not been a repeat number one overall running back number one in over two decades in the last ten years ten different running backs have finished number one. So do you guys think even with how dominant Christian McCaffrey was that that stat hurts his chances of finishing number one overall or is he just that good where he is going to define history? I. Mean The history on it is cool and all, but it doesn't predetermine what happens this year there's other factors that. Hurts EMC's chance of being number one running back this year. What are some of the factors aside from I? Mean well, we got Teddy Bridgewater is a new quarterback. We have a new head coach. Yeah. The new head coach completely different completely different ballgame. We're also predicting that Dj more has a good season We think there's going to be an uptick in volume for him. So yeah, there's there's a lot of factors that come into if a player is going to be able to repeat or not for me, it comes onto injury if he's healthy I think he repeats. Breaks history with that in that sense where he becomes the first repeat running back in a decade, he was just so good. He finished ahead of Aaron Jones who is running back number two last year in full point. By over a hundred and fifty points like that is absolutely on heard of yeah crazy. Yeah. He's number one for a reason. He's really good at football and especially a fantasy is so I yeah, McCaffrey's our consensus number one I. think he's everybody consensus number one through fantasy industry. There's no reason if you're drafting in the one spot to even think, don't use your draft clock draft Christian McCaffrey, the other thing that I wanted to call out with running backs and what we're going to be looking at today. Is over the last two seasons the RB number twenty four. So the last running back to for teams has ended with exactly one hundred and sixty points. So that's kind of the guideline that we're going to use for that reason. So when we're looking at this, we're trying to figure out who the top twenty four running backs are that are going to be able to break that. Hundred and sixty point mark and last year seventeen running backs finished over two hundred points and then seven fell between one hundred and sixty and two hundred. So there's normally going to be right around that sixteen seventeen eighteen running backs that hit over two hundred points. So if you can land two of those running backs, you are going to be sitting pretty and that is what we're. Here to do today to discuss which players are going to do that. So Fun little facts with Matt the new through in there with the hundred and sixty point rb twenty, four, I like that yeah to two and it just kinda show is like a big thing is like hell in there because that's only ten points per game that's like five catches fifty yards, fifty yards, zero. Russian. Should just look at people's physicals and their genetic makeup. Draft based on that. So yeah, we ended up with Christian McCaffrey at number one like we talked about he had twenty four, hundred yards one hundred, sixteen receptions in one thousand, nine touchdowns last year, six games in the twenty s six games in the thirties and two games in the forty S. That's insane. So Tyler said, don't even use your draft clock. If you have the number one overall pick draft Christian, McCaffrey not a fan of people being a little but and wait until the last second to take McCaffrey pick one. No definitely. If I have picked to because I'm like is there a chance that they're not gonNa take Christian McCaffrey and then they take him with one second left and then you make Barclay pick with. Your whole clock on on their to while we all have saquon Barkley coming in at number two. So all three of US had him as our second running back off the board. He had a down year last year but he was hampered by his high ankles ran for a lot of the season. He missed three games and it took them a while to get going eight of his first ten games. Last year scored on twenty points, which is not what you expected out of him after his rookie season over his final three games he posted thirty, forty three and twenty fantasy points. He was healthy he looked explosive. He's going to be an absolute star once yeah. He just lost all explosiveness. I won t came back from that injury with the offseason. Hopefully got that recouped is definitely a prime candidate to bounce back this year it was high ankle sprains are no joke like they talk take time for them to recover and I think he came back a little bit too early and that's why he was hampered right away by he showed who Barkley is at the end there in the fancy playoffs. So big things looking for him for this year as well, and they usually project Hainkel sprains to be a six-week injury and he. was back after three. So he's just an absolute athletic freak and yeah, there's GonNa be huge things in store for Barclay again in twenty twenty coming in at number three was Alvin Kamara Jake tyler both had them at three I had him listed at Ford? You GUYS WANNA speak to why you have him slightly ahead of the next couple of running backs. Big thing is he's going to get more touchdowns this year it's like impossible not to their offense as far as wide receivers aren't as good. This year I mean just Thomas than you have sanders and then kind of fizzles out cook isn't going to get the touches. that he got last year the saints tight ends at Eighteen touchdowns. Last year, it's never going to happen again. So yeah, I think Kamara is a lock for additional touchdowns. Right? He finishes what rb ten you said last year nine nine and he missed time with that ankle back leg injury that he was dealing with you finished with eighty one receptions for the third consecutive year he's going to be locked get that if more and the the positive touchdown regression as well going in his favor if you to tell me to pick a running back, thank you finish rb one that isn't name. McCaffrey Barclay Tomorrow's my pick. Yeah. With all of that, you can expect the yards and the receptions to be there all three of his year so far he's right in line with yards each season, and he's had exactly eighty one receptions and all three years like you said, I, think without a doubt he gets back into the double digits for touchdowns this year and he is a lot for top three. I wouldn't be surprised if anybody were to beat out McCaffrey Tomorrow's my pick for do you think saints of their week fifteen and Camara. Has eighty-one receptions. There's not gonNA thrown the ball anymore. They shouldn't is kind of a cool staff keep eighty perceptions. Every year of his career drew brees will not hurt his knowing percentage by to anyone else if he doesn't have to so no, he he would throw to. All right. Coming in at number four we have Zeki Elliot. J We kind of flip flop here Jake and myself had him at four and Matt had met three. Yes. Some thoughts on why you have the ahead of Kamara here matt. Yeah. It's so close I went back and forth on this I got Elliott three just because of how insanely consistent he is he finished as a running back number three last year. He's one of the true workhorse backs left in the league. He's had over three hundred carries three of his four seasons. The one year he didn't have over three hundred carries he only played in ten games. He was on pace for three, hundred, eighty seven carries that year he's still. Only twenty five years old, he had seventy seven receptions on ninety five targets in two thousand eighteen. I really really need him to get back to that I'm hoping that McCarthy throws him the ball because last year, he dipped down to fifty four receptions on seventy-one target so that hurt a little bit. But if he can get back into that seventy five reception range and I think he will because Mike McCarthy likes to throw the ball I'm hoping that he involves. Elliott. In that I, think with this high powered offense I, think Dallas is going to be the real deal this year. Yeah. You hit it was z keys just you know. You can count on Zeki. You know he doesn't Miss Time with injury the only time he's Mrs because of a suspension, the most steady running back you can have not name Christian McCaffrey. Yeah. Various steady just and the cowboys are going to be super powerful offenses here. That is the reason I have him a little bit lower than Kamara. It's just there's more options in that offense compared to the saints. Would you say he's the safest running back? Not Name McCaffrey yeah. Yes. Yeah. Like every week it's it's your county between thirteen and twenty two points. He's not really the guy he only had one week over thirty points last year but. He's always between thirteen and twenty five points. I don't think Zeke is going to win you weeks anymore but I don't think he's ever GonNa lose you a week. You are going to get his projected points at the minimum. Yeah and I mean he's still only twenty five years old and there's a lot of tread on the tires but he's still young. He's got a lot of years left Dallas game that monster six year contract. So they plan on him being involved long-term in with how good this offense is I'm really really excited about what we can do this season does the retirement of the Center Travis Frederick were you at always seek? He he missed time because of the disease that he was dealing with before. But now he's retired like coming back. He's not even there in the locker room to help or you know game plan or anything. Now he's a beast of a center but I agree like at the end of last season, they already were playing without him. So he proved that he's not going to release, skip a beat or fall off too much. But there's no doubt that injury in that retirement hurt Elliott a little bit cu let's move onto number five and this is. This is where things started to get not so so friendly we start have some disagreements here in number five came in with Delvin Cook and we all actually were lower than him at number five but he just came out to be number five because of how we ranked everyone else. Yeah so Dalvin All all signs are pointing to a full go for this season despite the contract disputes that we've been hearing about when he's healthy, he's a top five running back. We know that he's already missed twenty games industry or career. So we do know about those durability concerns. But if he plays all sixteen games in a contract year, he could easily push for top three at the position especially if the Vikes aren't planning. On resigning him, they're going to run them into the ground because they don't really care about his overall health. No, and he was actually number two points per game at the running back position last year behind Christian McCaffrey He just didn't play sixteen like you mentioned but if he is getting that full workhorse roller, you said the Viking's just don't care about resigning him. He will not play sixteen games because he's GONNA break down he's Just proven that he cannot maintain a full sixteen game pace cook might be the most high risk high reward player in all of fantasy. I generally tend to avoid these types of players in the first round, I like the safe picks and round one but man, he is so exciting to watch when he is on the field. Super Exciting to watch it would be great for him to come out and throw it all on the. Field trying to get that contract because he is so much fun to watch coming in at number six was Joe. Mixing Tyler you're the highest system you have them listed at number five both Jake, and myself have met eight. Why do you got mixing inside your top five? The reason I have mixed in inside? My top five is what he did last year but this year bringing Joe Borough and that receiving core is pretty stack with. Green Ross t higgins defenses aren't going to be able to stack the box. You did all of that last year pretty much honest act box. He's going to see you know less defensive pressure. He's going to get a lot of touches. He's GonNa, have you know probably twelve hundred yards eight touchdowns something like that I agree with your yardage and touchdown projections? That's right about what I got him at. He's coming off back to back eleven hundred rushing yards seasons. He doesn't score that much. So he's only as fifteen touchdowns over his last two years. So you would like to see that number increase, but I don't know if the bengals offense is good enough to produce a running back. That's GONNA score double digit touchdowns. Yeah I'm worried about especially the beginning part of the season with jober. Oh, starting you know he's he's going to start slower than what we probably anticipate because of the offseason he hasn't gotten to work with all the guys up until you know training camp just recently started mixing is going to be the focal point we're assuming aged green is healthy but do. We really know how healthy he is. No, we don't the receiving core looks a lot worse if aged green is out but I like Nixon and just not as high as you are boroughs going to be an absolute stud in the NFL but there's no there's going to be a learning curve in this offseason has done him no favours for any of that. Come in at number seven. Derrick Henry and I got to be the guy to blame here for Derrick Henry being this low because I was the lowest on a my outside rb. I, haven't number ten and it didn't seem right when I was looking at my projections and I looked at feel right I looked at what I had him projected for and I just I like guys a little bit more than him in that just due to the lack of his receiving work. But I mean I have him for fourteen hundred rushing yards. Have Him for Twenty Five, twenty, ten touchdowns on the ground. I I, I'm projecting for a good year stale as Atlanta for seventeen receptions one hundred and forty yards couple touchdowns on the in the air. But I, just think it's hard for him when he has such a low floor with the catches for him to break out into top five running back potential like he did last year. Yeah. The receptions in the receiving work is certainly a fair point but I absolutely loved Eric Henry six threes two hundred and fifty pounds. He's downhill. Runner he just runs straight through people eighteen touchdowns last year, and he led the League in rushing. So if you're not gonNA catch the ball a lot you need to score touchdowns and you need to be efficient with your rushing, and that's exactly what he does. He average over five yards per carry over the last two seasons, which is second to only Rahim Moster in that span. It's Kinda surprising when you hear regime most, it has touch the ball more than twelve times. Yeah. That's true in his four year career though he's never. Exceeded twenty receptions in a year so his value is definitely hire in non ptr leagues but still just with how good Derrick Henry is in the current state of the passing weapons and Tennessee with Corey Davis. Being on the PUP list I think I'm making a bold prediction here. You Guys Derrick Henry will have over twenty nine point five receptions in two thousand, twenty I like it. That's what it came down to me. Is it simply a volume game for Henry because there's three options there AJ Brown Jonah Smith Derrick Henry, and that's it. No no nor about other that's it. Let's move on to the next one humphries. We'll get targets especially with Korea Davis normally we give rebuttals but not on that on that one. Yeah you get that one I'll ride coming in at number eight we have Kenyan Drake Jake was came in the highest on them at five I came in at eight and Matt came in at ten and for me, it's clear opposite argument for Derrick Henry is just getting drake is going to catch the ball. And, we're expecting this offense to take a step forward both in the efficiency and in the volume, and if that happens Kenyan drake is going to get more work than he showed that he even could handle last games last year in which if he gets that much is true done at that point who does catch the ball who's going to score touchdowns I I'm all in Kendrick this year me too. But just I think more realistic having at eight, it's definitely be increased volume they're going. To give him the ball. But how much are we going to see Hopkins I got Kenyan Drake at number ten and you know Tyler I was thinking about this and you and I are both kind of hypocrites and I'll tell you why we always are. Yeah. But the reason why I say that is you're treading lightly on higby because of a five game sample but you're all in on Kenyan drake who's really only had three dominant games in a Cardinals Jersey and I'm the exact opposite. because. I'm treading lightly on drake because of three three-game sample but I'm all in on Haig who had five dominant games. So I'm worried about Kenyan drake being over hyped I. Think he's an absolute star I think he will finish as an rb one but I see it being in this ten range where I have him as opposed to a top five back. But Drake finish with eighty seven points over his last three games, which was third best in that spanned only McCaffrey Barkley so there's obviously About his potential yeah. What I like about drake to as you're drafting him closer to where you have him ranked whereas I'm not paying top five running back price for him. So I just like the upside. I will die on that hill same. Yeah. That's fair I mean I also have been my top ten. So I'm not too far off right or not not like we're huge argument here you haven't like fifteen or something I it's a couple spots and like I said if I'm drafting him at ten, I'm ecstatic about nine and we all came in at number nine on. All the lines here. That means NICK CHUBB IS GONNA. Finish rb nine this year. Yeah. That's guaranty. Right lock it up I think that's what that means. So the pros nick job is Kevin Stefanski in town and he wants to run the rock early and often chubb is a really really good running back. But the cons are Kareem Hunt is there and he's going to get most of the receiving work don't forget Kareem Hunt outscored nick job and six of eight games last season once he returned from suspension so it's A, very, very real threat to nick chubs workload definitely real threat I just don't think trump could be as bad as he was at the goal last year like I don't it's literally just not possible. He ran for negative yards from Russia's inside the five and the browns made clear attempts to improve blind this year. So I think trump is going to be more efficient especially at the golden should be more touchdown for him. I still have him getting twenty receptions even with hunt in they're getting all the reception so. I think they're still gonNA use job thinks to fancy is actually pretty smart coach. He's going to get his best players involved landry. He's no longer on the pup, but he's still kind of dealing with an injury. So we'll see haunted is just used as a third wide receiver. You know we don't really know what that role is. GonNa look like. So I thought I like trump's dole out this year. I. Like trouble out too. But yeah, the one fear factor in there is what is that split going to be? Between trump and hunt we don't know. Yeah. I see the split being roughly sixty forty maybe seventy thirty in trump's favor but the receiving work is going to go to Kareem Hunt but the good news with Kevin Stefanski absolutely loves to run the football. So their volume is going to be up in general. So that's why I still have inside of my top ten but that's a crazy stat. You said Jake that he had negative yards inside of the five you know how many carries was taught my head no like sixteen. digits yeah, that's crazy. He needs to improve that and then he could be in for a huge season. Yeah. With additions of Jack, Jack Conklin, and then the tackle that they added to is that worse or did he? Yeah. So worse I think either way like they made improvements the offensive line knowing that they need to get Chubb going and to help protect Baker I think trump's infra safe year again this year. Yeah. I actually just looked it up. It's they took Jack Wills Junior. There you go. Now we're worse went to the box but yeah, either way. They made it. They made a point to improve that offense plan this off season. So I think it should help me help Chubb stay in the top ten running back coming in at number ten, Josh Jacob. I was highest on Jacobs at number seven, tyler at ten Jake Chasm at eleven. So I got him as more of a mid rb one and they both have them as a low end rb one buffer me it's. Four point yards precarious a rookie ran for over eleven, hundred yards and seven touchdowns in thirteen games. But the thing that worries me in the things that they're going to talk about is that they've brought in all of these new pass catchers on the roster in for me in order for Jacobs to make the leap year two, he needs to be more involved in the passing game. So Lynn? Bowden. Jalen. Rashard. They use waller all the time in the short passing situations they added whitten and rug. So there's a lot of defeat in this offense. So that might hinder Josh Jacobs from making that big leap in year two but I'm still huge on them. Yeah. That's exactly why he's just a little bit lower for me is the lack of volume in the passing game with all those weapons, I? Mean not even call them weapons, but all those other targets they're his passing work is definitely going to decrease from just my projections all of those other bodies, those bodies right and it's the thing is if we're you know you guys are higher on rugs and we like waller as the top five tight end in Jacobs is still there they they kept like you said, he's going to get passes. And bowed in Edwards maybe were sleeping on Derek Carr that the that the would be taken out of that I. Don't think you can ever sleep on Derek Carr I don't think so either but like you said, it's just a lot of bodies. It's tough for him to improve. That's why you said we have lower than what you have them but Jon Gruden did say he was pissed that Josh Jacobson win rookie of the year he said that maybe this year we're going to prove that he should have gotten it. So maybe you'll get your wish and we were a little bit spread on. Jacobs. But nothing like we are spread on Honora number eleven running back, Clyde Edwards, Allaire me and Matt both have him at eleven even after the Damian Williams opt out but Jay Kasim at six. Yeah. And actually the biggest reason for increase for me. I had him in about fifteen range before DB nopd out. But after deeming opted out, it was the touchdowns. That's what made him jump so much. It wasn't so much more volume because he's GonNa get obviously some of that Damian Williams work, but he's not going to get it at all, but he's just not built to be a workhorse three hundred. Touch running back. We all know that, but it's the touchdown potential now that like demon was good at scoring touchdowns like he he was he he's great at it for fantasy with him gone, they're going to need to get someone else the ball that can score touchdowns don't think Daryl Williams is going to do it. I don't think Darwin Thompsons, GonNa do it, and then tell they bring in another. Running Back Clyde is that guy? So that's why he jumps. So much of my rankings he definitely jumped in mine as well, but I am just so fearful of a rookie running back home into a lead back role with zero preseason games zero looks zero getting tackled by two hundred, eighty, five, pound lineman. You got him out replayed at Lsu like he he's been hit by them. Big Boys. Yeah. They're. Bigger. In the pros they're bigger they're faster what like he's being tackled by you know Mac ten whatever conference that is where we play on that field like you got hit by big boys. So don't don't discount too much on that. Yeah, and for me I I really really like the chiefs offense huge news flash. I'm sure for all you guys what yeah crazy one, your your chief, San? Nuts, but I had to be realistic with this but any reads featured running back has finished inside the top ten at the position in twelve of the last sixteen years that he's been a head coach. So seventy five percent of the time the featured running back finishing as a top ten running back I ended up putting him at eleven just because he's a rookie and he hasn't had the off season that he should have gotten I'm also just worried that people are drafting him are expecting him to be cream. Hunt, what he was his rookie year because they're situations are similar. They were both great prospects coming out of the draft hunt became a starter doodoo Spencer Ware Injury H. is becoming a starter to the Williams opt out they both play a primetime Thursday night game to start their seasons and their careers. But the difference was hunt went for two hundred and fifty yards and three touchdowns in his first NFL game. C. H. Likely will not hunt led the league in rushing as a rookie and won rookie of the year. is going to be fantastic but generally takes time for rookies like what Kareem Hunt did is very, very rare and he had a prison and he had a preseason games. So that's that's I. Don't know where to rate C. H. Because if he bawled out and finish as top five running back, would I be shocked not really but if he takes some time to get going to be shocked no, not really. So he's kind of a tough player same for me and it's one that I'm just GonNa live by and die by probably not drafted him unless he drops to the second round and. We. Won't anymore right. No for sure and like I won't be surprised if he finishes top five running back and I love to watch him play don't want to take that risk I WANNA be risk adverse be realistic with your expectations of a rookie running back this year number twelve Aaron Jones Jacob Matt were twelve I was thirteen feels almost criminal the put him here at twelve like he had such a good year last year I. Honestly. I. Was Looking at it. I'm like man I feel bad like an it's not the Vikings Fan. That's me. That's putting him here. It's just a fact of I'm worried about Matt Leflore I'm actually worried that head coach is not going to use his best player because Matt before has shown everything that he wants to put the ball and other people's hands. Should we send him a welfare checks and the sheriff over there to check on the floor? No, he can fluor. No. Putting you cram hoefler no. I hope he doesn't use Aaron Jones for the sake of the Vikings. But for fantasy purposes, he needs to use Jones I. Don't know why he wouldn't but mean he tied McCaffrey for League and touchdowns last year with nineteen, the packers liked to run the ball Jones's in a contract year. So for me if Green Bay is planning on letting him walk then they might actually run him into the ground and if that's the case, I mean he's not gonNa Score Nineteen touchdowns. Again, he's not gonNA FINISH RB to jazz potential to have a really good season, but the CON is They just went out and drafted. Aj Dylan, in the second round without a doubt is going to eat into his goal line work. So it's the moves at the packers made in the draft. We're just surprising to me. That's what I mean I. Don't get it like they brought in Dylan he's going to get some legal work they still Jamal Williams. He's going to get some of the passing work and then have Aaron. Jones so Jones had one thousand, nine touchdowns last year let's set the line this year at nine and a half or you taken over or the under I'll say He'll still hit double digits but it's closer to ten than it is nineteen I think I am projected at ten. have. Yeah you item at nine I think Aj. Dylan takes at least four to five of the goal line touchdowns this year and even without Aj Dillon? He was never going to get nineteen again. No, that's right number for just how much he was on the field to he didn't have that big of a snap share compared to some of the other running back centre rb ones that wraps up our rb. Wan's are rankings one through. Twelve any final thoughts here? guys go out and get running backs from all the mock dress that we've done. You need to address running back early this year really you need to address running back early every year but this year more than normal because there's so many good wide receivers that you can get in mid rounds go out, get those running backs that you think have a chance to fall into that over the two hundred point category. Mark every year sixteen, seventeen, eighteen running backs are gonna hit the two hundred mark. If you can have two of them, you are setting yourself up for success and if you think are bs zero rb is a strategy this year go do a mock draft and honestly told me that you like the team and I will tell you that you're a liar because zero the is dead this year, and if you do like the team you get. Please send it to us because we would love to see what team you landed, where you like the running backs that you get if you wait on them yeah, and where can they send that to tyler they send to our twitter at F- F Ot podcast you follow us on facebook as well.

We begin to turn our attention to the combine Indianapolis later this month, an NFL free agency next month to get started with the combine the biggest story lie. There will be Oklahoma quarterback Tyler Murray and the man whose career might be most directly related to Murray's at a similar point. Like just be former Florida state quarterback and Heisman Trophy winning quarterback. Charlie ward who chose the NBA after becoming a first round pick from the New York. Knicks over the NFL ward talks about what Murray is and will continue to go through. And then we'll bring on the patriots mammoth left tackle Trent Brown who's coming off winning a Super Bowl protecting. Tom Brady's blindside. And now getting ready to become an unrestricted free agent. And then we'll take your calls. And your questions. Another weekly addition of ask Adam. But first we started off with the former first round draft pick of the New York. Knicks Charlie ward. Hello, charlie. Adam. How are you doing have? Your phone line's been lighting up since all this column Murray news came out was the up, but I've been doing interviews about him, you know, fence to Heisman. Yeah. Before taha's? Well, it's interesting. Because really when you look at it. Now, there really isn't a closer comparison thing you I know that people talk about other to sports stars. Like, Bo Jackson and Dion Sanders, but they didn't play quarterback. They didn't have the choices that you did. So I guess my thought would be when you look at the column Ori situation. What goes into your thought process as to what he's thinking? Well, I guess the first thing is, you know, I'm I'm glad that he, you know, left his options open. You know, his his situation is wasn't a little different than mine when it came to, you know, his options because he got it. You know? In the first round of major league baseball. So he has something in in the bag in the sense of, you know, a job, and you know, I guess his decision was was made tougher when you know, we won the Heisman. And then he got a draft great, you know, first round pick. And so now, it's just a matter of, you know, whether he wanted to focus on football or not, and then baseball was kinda left, you know, holding the bag once he decided that he wanted to focus on football not. Meaning you know, what I mean, he can't go back to baseball. But in order to the season. I'm sure it was a telephone. Because I mean, you you you're making the decision on your future. And you're not one hundred percent sure on what was what's going to happen? And you know, for me it was very similar because I wanted to keep. Options open, very similar to what trial or did. You know, saying that he's going to think about you know, the NFL droughts. And once you made his decision he did online collar. I didn't make the decision as far as what I was going to focus on one hundred percent. I just knew that I wanted to keep my options open after basketball season. Well, it actually started doing basketball season my senior year when I decided to play basketball. I knew I wanna be one percent committed to the NFL because I heard him. I dropped grade was like third or fourth round. And and the times have changed as well. So I'm happy that you know, smaller quarterbacks didn't opportunities get dropped into the first round. And, you know, get legit opportunities. Not saying that I didn't have the opportunities. But it just wasn't. Prevalent during my time of getting drafted in the first round. It's a different world today if you were playing football today, and we're coming out with the way the teams now look at quarterbacks mobile quarterbacks. Do you think you would have been a first round pick today? Charlie. I don't know if I would have been the first round pick probably would have had on trinity. The chances would have been totally different and all sorts of made my decision a little bit tougher when it came down to with sport. I was going to pursue the most I didn't give up one hundred percent on the NFL just weren't committed to it one percent, which you know, they wanted me to give up the option of man basketball. And but I didn't want to because I said was the third or fourth round draft pick. But you know, today's scam. You know, the way things are going for the smaller quarterbacks getting opportunity, I room. It definitely made that that's shorts a lot tougher. If I told you that you would have been a first round draft pick and football. Would that have changed your thinking at all? Yes. Because my whole process was NFL headed first draft. And I was you know, I was going to be drafted in the first round. Then, you know, I would definitely, you know, given the option of Abascal ball because I was just man of my word, you know, when I came out I said that you know, if I wasn't going to be jailed in the first round, and you know, I was gonna consider my other option, which I knew I wouldn't going to get jobs in the first round. But I wanted to keep all the options open sorted. I could have the opportunity to play in the NBA if I got drought in first round. And I think collar knows that he's going to be a first round pick and probably a high first-round pick. And I think he loves football loves it more than baseball. And I think he thought that all along that he used last years and all. Addition. And once she saw that he was good enough to win the Heisman and follow in the steps of Baker Mayfield. He chose to follow his love when you watch him play. Charlie. I don't know how much you have watched him play. We'll goes through your mind and your assessment of skills. He's definitely a guy that can can change the game. You sorta at against Alabama. If they struggle a little early on which most teams do against Alabama, but he was able to figure it out which was commendable for him. And I felt that help, you know, both his opportunity or chance to be a first round pick by plan and plan a team like Alabama, and they gave scouts they people. Tune in to see what he can do against the top notch defense. And I mean, he kinda torched them once he figured out. You know, how he can you know, make make his impact on the game. And so that was you know, happy to see him do that. And I think that helped him you know, and draft status as one percent. But it definitely helps people to see him in a different light. You mentioned times have changed in the NFL. And I think they have I think teams are more open minded to t- to looking at. Shorter quarterbacks guys we can make plays and win. We've seen it with Baker Mayfield. And drew Brees. And Russell Wilson. What kind of impact you expect holler Murray to have at the NFL level, Charlie? I'm sure he'll our incentive progress as a quarterback very similar to you know, Baker. And you know, drew, and Russell how they've been able to you know, progress over there years, and you know, they had to figure it out. Hopefully, he'll go in and talk with those guys to see what they had to do to be able to seal the line, or, you know, made themselves to the value quarterback that they aren't today, and I hope hopefully, it will take the time to seek them out, and you know, their wisdom on how they rate with to make it in in a fill those far. And so I do believe that he'll he'll he'll make his impact depend upon the. Team because he has those dynamic qualities that those other guys have as well. I would think that you met Cuyler at the Heisman ceremony this year accurate. Yes. I did. And did you guys have a chance to exchange any words that you have any messages to share with him in regards to his careers? He begins to move forward here. Well, I I was this year's not twenty fifth year. And so they honoring me and at the banquet or the dinner Sunday night, you know, just share with them that you know, he should follow heart, and whatever he does, you know, don't have a regret. Whether it's baseball football. Whatever may be that, you know, no one ever have any regrets. Whenever you make your decision. And, you know, do it, you know, as if you know, you you're there for the long haul. You know, a lot of people ask me, you know, do you have any regrets about not playing NFL? And I don't you know, I I was able to watch TV young play against Tampa Bay. When I went to visit work done and on that day when I got up to see Steve Young play. And he had a very successful game. I knew at that time that I could've played a NFL and that was enough. For me and having regrets when I made the play in the NBA. What did you see from Steve Young that make you not have regrets? Where he was a smaller guy. I'm as a little bit bigger thicker, but he wasn't the tall in my mind. You know, you had to be six four six three six four to be in effective quarterback and NFL that was doing my time. That's my whole process. Maybe I was a little taken aback that I wasn't, you know, highly sought after whatever the case may be, but you know, when I got off to the C Steve Young play and he was a a passer, but he's also runner as well. And that does gave me the understanding and know that I could've played in NFL. It'd be interesting to see you play today in today's NFL, Shirley, we'd like to see you out there. What do you think you could do? Nothing that this point. No. I'm forty eight. No. I know Tom Brady is on his way to trying to play it forty eight. But I'm coaching high school basketball right now and enjoying that part of it. But no, you don't wanna see me at forty eight trying to plan for. What do you like about coaching high school basketball today? Charlie. I it's it's it's rewarding. And it says that you get an opportunity to mold young minds help kids develop. Their identity when it comes to, you know, plan a game of basketball or just sports in general. You know, I've been blessed to have great coaches, you know, from high middle school to high school to college to the French and the ranks and I worked at trying to mold all those things that they brought our dates me try to help our young kids develop is will. And so that's been you know, the most rewarding is just been able to help kids develop, you know, an identity outside of basketball, but more so, you know, developing care to that will help them long term, you forty eight right now think back to when you were these young men's age our young men different today than they were when you were younger. Yes, they are higher ever as I said before and we all know times have changed. But one thing that doesn't change is, you know, being respectful treating people the right way and doing things right way. And so no matter how old are young. You are those characteristics will always be there. And so, you know, we're teaching about accountability she didn't bought responsibility on teaching about work at all those things carry over. No matter how old you are. And so those are the parents Orissa's that we're really instilling in them that will you know, that that are ageless I grew debt. Now, the other thing I want to ask you about is your former team the New York Knicks. They trade. Kristaps Porzingis clear out cap space for two max contracts. This all season any expectations. About this Knicks team turning it around in the future. And maybe adding some star power to the roster trolley. Well, I hope so we we've been starving for you know, playoff victory for quite some time. And I think management, you know, they're doing everything in their power to make their team competitive. And so I'm not sure where they're landing in the streets based or the lottery, but they'll they'll eventually get a a solid basketball player. And if they can get two guys that can come in and help most some of those young players, you know, year or two they are definitely be you know, in the running. So I think they have some good young pieces there now that they can kind of build on. But the Niessen some veterans that you know, star are veterans that can come in and help them get back. It's been a while get back many, you know, from a long time ago. Just to be competitive in the east, and you know, hopefully, they'll know they keep talking about K D yet I read, but if you can get those guys together or. Any combination of stars to go along with the young pieces that they're going to have would definitely go a long way, and you know, getting getting back to you know, the play offs and and makes makes northern in the playoffs. Kevin durant? Shirley, hasn't sounded like somebody who's ready to make the jump to the next. However, his company thirty five levels just leased office space in New York City that to me is interesting. I don't know if that means he is or isn't coming, but why would his company lease office space in New York City with him about to become a free agent. Interesting, right. Yes. Interesting. But you it remains to be seen, you know, never know until it actually happens. So no, the Knicks fans, and everyone close associated with the Knicks definitely hope that that's the case. And you know, Anthony Davis and root out either. So you never know, Charlie. We you watch the NFL draft to see where column or he wants going. Probably will watch be interesting to see where colleague goes. But as I mentioned, I'm so I'm so happy for these guys getting opportunities because I know that wasn't, you know, legit opportunity for me to be a first round pick. But, you know, I'm just happy for, you know, Baker and collar and guys, you know, coming up and spread systems. You know, they're getting opportunities. They be small, but they're getting opportunities to have a legit opportunity to there'd be a first round pick in the NFL. Which was you know, very very very tough doing my era. Well, Choi, I really push you take some time today. Thank you, very very much. Good luck with high school basketball team and good luck to Kalomo during the draft as well. All right. Appreciate out them. We'll be back in a moment with Super Bowl. Champion Trent Brown. But I I want to tell you about vivid seats, don't settle for waiting in lines Shelford tickets to every game with the official ticket partner of ESPN, vivid seats, at vivid seats, you can see your seats before you buy them. And they're backed by one hundred percent buyer guarantee, you may have to find another way to spend your time besides waiting in line, but you'll be closer to the action than ever before and on over to vivid seats, the largest independent ticket marketplace around and spend less time in the waiting room and more time in the great seats of your choice. Don't buy just any seat get a vivid seat. Trent crew, what is it like to go in a Super Bowl? And now get to go become a free agent. Could there be a better time to be alive and twenty five? Nah. It isn't. I've been talking about that nonstop honestly. So that'd be traded. As like, the sequence of events is been crazy definitely been beneficial for being my family, definitely been a blessing. And like I've been saying since I've been traded God made mistakes. What have the last couple of weeks been like since winning the Super Bowl? A dream. If you've almost fake, I mean to go from being thirteen thirty five to, you know, starting out rocking their finishing. How we did. I was I was amazing to see the resolve that we had to finish through and finish from. When did you know that this team was a Super Bowl caliber championship winning team? Oh, I always kinda felt it. But it was just a few loose. Loose ends. We had to get tightened up and. We made it happen. When you get traded last spring as you were right at the time of the draft. What goes through your mind when you hear you're going to New England, and you are going to be in charge of protecting. Tom Brady's blindsided to left tackle position. Beverly never I definitely feel simply put I feel like I was I was. Called for for the job. And I was I have the call. And what's it like blocking for him? Tom really one of the coolest guy I've ever met in my life, unless there's notebooks on any stress do imagination. He's really a cool guy. There's really Iraq. You say like, what makes him cool threat? What makes him cool? I don't know. He's just cool. Calm collective all the time. But I mean, of course, he means business, and he's great at what he does as obvious with. Where people don't see that. That's I mean, he's a cool guy. You know what? I mean. He's a nice guy to Jinglin nice. Yeah. Right. When do people ask you what it's like to play for the patriots? How would you describe that? The patriot ways is fun winning. The brother wrote the brotherhood the camaraderie. Between everybody in the facility from the length ladies to the custodians to practice squad. Everybody is you know when family. Now, we don't know what's going to happen with you. You're your free agent. But should you leave New England what will be the single most memorable moment of your time? There. The thing you will always have in your mind. Working with coast car for sure coach star Nekia ver-. What about him stands out to you Trent? The. He reminds me of my dad a lot. Not not in stature. But definitely just how he works the room commands the room and leaves the room. And leaves everybody. Honestly, everybody in the facility, let's go scar. As my definitely my favorite coaching staff. My favorite I've had since junior college. Definitely I appreciate them more than anything. Appreciate our friendship and everything he's made a huge difference for that team. He walked away for a while Trent for a year or two, and you're they were not the same line when he was gone. But when he came back that line went right back to being what it was. Why is that? I mean, I think it's a speaks about his character and how to use everybody loves him. Everybody wants to work for them in and how he he coaches his heart and love them at the same time in the way. He does he's calming of of everything is perfect impeccable. So what is going to happen with you? And you look into your crystal ball right now Trent with you about to become an unrestricted free agent after playing four years in this league after becoming a seventh round draft pick to two hundred and forty fourth overall selection at a Florida where do you see Trump Brown's future? Hopefully somewhere where I can. Bill some loans every somewhere that'd be great place in great fit schematically in the locker room on the field. And also a great fit in my family is with. Any chance you're back in New England. It was that's definitely something. I would love. But hey, dude, got we're gonna cross periods. Get their business is business. Correct. If you made a million nine last year one point nine million last year, what's the major paycheck that you're gonna earn this off season going to mean to you and your family Trent? Well, ever since I got drafted Sam Brown. I felt like that was. Definitely lower than expected lower than I ever wanted to go. But you know, happens for a reason, but I feel disrespected by and I've been waiting for this for this time for a long time. Now, I've been putting in the work force in my a week and a half off, and I'm already back training. 'cause I don't I definitely don't want want people to feel like, oh, he's he's going to be paid. And then get lazy. I wanna I wanna continue to win. I want to continue to get better. And I want to continue to to say my goes, you're talking about feeling insulted when you drop to the seventh round in the two hundred and forty four overall pick. How does somebody your size the biggest player in the NFL six foot eight three hundred eighty pounds adept in the past blocking area had somebody your size that skilled dropped that far? I'm not really serious. I know a lot of times in in this in this game. This lead a lot of major sports. Word of mouth is more valuable sometimes the actual play or kicks of the actual being in player. I feel like that has a lot to do with. But hey, if happened happened, we're here and think you've definitely worked out in my favorites. Everything I remember talking to the forty Niners when you were made available, and the one thing that came to me was that you were as good a pass blocker as there was in the entire NFL. Is there anybody that can pass block like you Trent? Moser? What makes you so good in that area? Oh, I'm honestly, I'm just I'm a I'm an athlete with the Hughes frame, and I can move just as well. As a guy who? Six three three twenty if and I moved a lot better than those guys, in some cases, most cases, I'd say credited that my dad not allowing me to play with with kids my age when I was growing up. I always play was age groups above my is my own in. Finding out that some of those kids were actually way older than I was. I remember I was five and some of those kids were in middle school already. You know, a lot of a lot of times that type of stuff goes on football. Sure, you've heard of the birth certificate is I and all that stuff. But I growing up I was always skillful there. And I just started playing off the line when I got the high school, really. How will wear of the fact where you that? You were the heaviest player in the NFL. It's something that's on your mind ever you ever think about? Done. Really, then it didn't really phase. And they don't really think about it from. From. All the time. I've really come to mind is when everybody would. We're trying to make it as if it's a problem, or that's the reason. Things may not go the right way, or whatever. But. I make the same blocks. Everybody else makes. I make better blocks than a lot of other people make. But I I feel like sometimes they just they have to have something bad to say about somebody. Sometimes. Well, I don't think it's I don't think it's a bad thing. I just think in a league of giant men. It's kinda cool that you are the heaviest one of all, and I don't mean that in any kind of insulting what you're a Super Bowl champion, you play left tackle your as good a pass blocker as there is in the NFL there's nothing insulting about. But there's nobody bigger than you. Nobody. Yeah. It's kind of neat. But sometimes sometimes people try to use it as a definitely as a light dimmer. I feel like but. I don't I don't see it as that. At all. I would think it would be something that would make you more attractive as a free agent. I really mean that right? What is your ideal playing way Trent do you have one? I finished the seasons at a three I usually three fifty five three seventy somewhere in there. Three fifty three seventy. And what and what would you like to play next season at? Somewhere in there. Good. Now. Do you have do you have an area that you'd like to go like you played high school football and Albany, Georgia? Would you like to go back down south? We could like to go back out west where you played the first three years your career. Do you have a certain preference, or is it just more most important to find a place that you fit in that wants you as badly as you want them. Right location. Really doesn't matter to me. Is this finding a home? That's the most important and is anybody from New England Tom Brady or Sony, Michelle or anybody that depends on you doing your job is anybody come and said to you Trent don't go anywhere. We want you here in New England. I'll think everybody's outright just come out and say it, but just definitely small small conversation here and there as as definitely occurred. Any chance you get franchise tagged or transition tag to your Trent? I don't know has anybody mentioned that to you. Well, then perhaps you will be the unrestricted free agent that you desire to become here. Right now, what we flash ahead to March eleventh twelfth thirteenth when negotiating can begin and contracts can be signed what will that parade be like few? Where will you be what will be going through your mind at that time? I'll be in Miami. With my agent thinking close by working out and with my family as I was when I got drafted a little fantasy the same way. And when you get that contract. Is there anything that you have set out to do financially like by new house by new car by your parents? And you anything like that that is a financial priority to you Trent? Definitely gonna take your my parents. I I was blessed before birth by adding those two as my parents, I definitely feel like there. Two angels in walking desires. I'm just highly appreciative of both of them. And I just went to everything they've given me I want to give that back to them team fo-. Wow. So mama and Papa Brown. Get taken care of your. Her here. You know, listen, if my parents made me, and I was six foot eight instead of five foot eight I be taking tutoring. Yes, sir. But they didn't do that. For me. If you got the gift of gab, though, I don't know about I don't know about that. I'd rather be a free agent like you with the Super Bowl Raham. I think. Yes, sir. Hey, trent. I thank you for taking the time today. I wish you lots of luck in the weeks to come. It's going to be very interesting and exciting to see where you wind up. And I hope you get everything that you deserve. Geico presents unhelpful home improvement. How To's a slippery bathroom floor can result in expensive hospital bills?

But it's time for me to turn over to my trusted producer, and friend. Josh macrey to feel the questions and throw them back at me. And we thank you all in advance for those questions or Josh, what do you got? I this week run roll out, and we had some good questions last week the week before that the callers delivered again this week got this first voice mail asking about whether or not the colts are in line to be the next Los Angeles Rams. John, gene. So in the twenty seventeen season we saw the Rams make the playoffs and then go crazy agency and the following year. Mickey to the Super Bowl this past year. We saw the Indianapolis Colts make the playoffs win a game. And now they have the most cap space in the league. He's making a similar runner free agency this offseason to try to make a Super Bowl run. We'll join them. Well, John, I think the general manager Chris Ballard has done a great job is someone in the talent there there draft class last year stellar at now as you mentioned they have as much cap spaces anybody in the league, I think buffalo and the New York Jets are also right up there. And we'll see what teams released what players which will further clarify who has the most space, but going in nobody has much more space than the colts. So, you know, the Chris Ballard is going to be spending money. But here's the thing. You can't just go spend money willy nilly and not consider all the people that you wanna keep like at some point time. They got the recent Quinton Nelson and Darius Leonard and big money to all these guys, and they're going to be planning. For the future. But that doesn't mean that I'm not going to be ultra aggressive now. I think they will be I think they have a chance to do with the Rams did last year. I think the colts could be a favorite in the AFC next year and as long as Andrew luck stays healthy. And they keep accumulating talent, John. There's no reason that this team won't be competitive. A contender every single year going forward. Now Adams is the last time we released a podcast, the ravens and Broncos, of course, agreed on that trade in principle that will send Joe flacco to the rocky mountains, and our next caller wants to know a little bit more about what that means for Denver. Call him here from North Dakota. I'm a lifelong Denver Broncos fan. I have a question for you about the trades for Joe flacco, do you think he was a good guy to bring in as a bridge quarterback for the team considering he didn't seem to want to be very helpful. Lamar Jackson in Baltimore late last season. That's your question Nate, listen. We'll have to see I think maybe when you go through an experience like he did. And you get to be thirty four and you've had some of the injuries. I think sometimes your perspective changes. I think he's fighting to hold onto something that he really wanted to keep in Baltimore. And now he recognizes he's at a different phase in his career. At least that's what I would think. He would think I don't know that that's how he thinks. But that's how I would think he would think and look Joe flacco at the age of thirty four with the injuries that he does have. I gotta realize what does he got left two three four more years tops here to play. So you might as well come in Denver wants him as a starting quarterback assuming he comes into the store to plays. Well this year he'll be the starting next year. I don't think Joe flacco has got anything to worry about as long as he's playing to his capabilities and performing he'll keep playing. He'll keep starting if he doesn't then. Yeah. That becomes an issue. And we see how he handles it. I've always had the most respect for players that have handled that gracefully. I've seen a both ways where players. Have basically iced out players competing for their jobs, which I never liked or respected and I've seen players. Welcome competition. Welcome younger talented players and embraced the idea that one day these guys are gonna take over. I think you'll flacco smart enough to recognize where he's added this porn is career. But we'll see how he handles at the season eight from one quarterback who's currently experiencing a change of scenery to another one who could be experiencing that change in a year or two atom. How you doing name's Jeremy shockey Carolina. What are the chances down? Cowboys extended Dak Prescott contract this season. Or were they just let him play the last year of his rookie deal? A good question. Jeremy look Dallas. I don't expect to be active in free agency at all because Dallas is gonna wind up. I think franchising DeMarcus Lawrence wanna recent him wanna recite Dak wanna resigned Zeke Elliott wanna recent Amari Cooper, Jalen Smith, Byron Jones, look weak. You'll. On and on. I think it's a testament to the type of talent the amount of talent that they've brought in there that they have to resign. And decked Prescott is a major part of that make no mistake about it. Yes. I think they're going to resign him this off season. The question is what is the most fair number for a guy? Like Dak Prescott. We've seen quarterback salaries really start to take off here and the top quarterbacks are making the thirties. A year is Dak Prescott gonna want thirty million dollars a year or the Cowboys Bill to get him for. I don't know making up a number here. Twenty three twenty four twenty five million dollars a year. A both sides good with that. What's the right number? But I don't have any doubt that they want to resign them and both sides and make every effort to get a deal done this off season from the quarterbacks. Adam let's go to the running backs for this next ask Adam question. Hey, Adam and eve from Huntington what's Michigan with several teams looking for, you know, improvements at running backs such as ravens dolphins checks. Uh-huh jets. I'm just wondering what you've heard as far as like, what moves it'll be making, you know, which ones we'll be moving to make moves through free agency. And which ones they're going to try and build through the draft. Appreciate the time. Thanks. Yeah. It's a great question, Andy. And I appreciate you asking it when we look at the Frazier running backs out there right now lot good interesting players at that position Levy, I'm Bill Tevin Coleman Mark Ingram. J Gye TJ Yeldan C J Anderson Spencer ware, Frank gore. Mike davis. Adrian Peterson below Powell Darren sproles we go on and on you see right there. There's the list of names, and I think that teams have recognized that they really can't get by with just one back. So even if you're the Dallas Cowboys, and you've got rod Smith backing up Ezekiel, you know, you need some depth there. Like, how often do we see this over and over? And so I don't think any team says boy. You know, we've got a desperate need here. Running back that we have to fill though, some teams need greater than others. Of course. A but everybody needs to add some of these backs, and everybody's gonna look to draft some of these backs and we've seen the impact that some of these guys can have when the saints drafted Alvin Kamara in the third round that they didn't have screaming for back had that work out for them. So again, the idol I don't know that you could say boy the ravens have the biggest need and therefore they're going to be all in on levian Bill or Tevin Coleman. I just think the running back position is different unique and plentiful. We've closing out with a question about coaches for our final Ascott voicemail. Hey, Adam this is Dion. Jay, I'm a New Orleans Saints fan living in Georgia. Now wonder opinion on on which of all the new head coaching jobs that people just got which coach do you think has a chance to make an immediate impact? And based on what team they went through in the situation that they got put in or that they said the offer for which team you think has the best chance of succeeding in doing well next season such as what we saw with Sean McVay in the Rams with coach out of all the new hires. You think inherited the best situation they can use their scheme and their talents to make a team instantly in the competitive conversation for next year. Well, it's actually the question. The Andre I would say look we've seen this every year last year. Matt Nagy came in with the bears and took over and they won that division. I think always you're going to go back to the quarterback. Right. So Matla floor of the pack. Gets Aaron Rodgers as quarterback. So I would think off the bat. Matt leflore has the best chance to make the quickest impact Adam gates in New York, Sandra. I think has a very bright future. I think Adam gates has the chance to take over in the same way that Matt negative the year before with Mitchell Trubisky coming off his rookie year Donald coming off his rookie year Trubisky had a bright future. Dorrell's? Got a bright future bears. Had some talent particularly on the defense side jets have some talent tickly on the defensive side. So I could see the jets taking jump on their gays. I could see the Packers excelling under Matla floor. And I think those are two guys right away that stand out as guys that could make a difference this year in terms of the new coaches, look, we know that these coaching classes change over every single year, and we see seven eight coaching changes every single year, and it'll probably happen again. But I think that you look at the floor you look at gays those guys just jump out to me this year is having a chance to do. Good things right away. Good voicemails.
