Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.

"They get to come home. They're on a roll. I don't know if it's going to be the prettiest win, but thirty one seventeen is a score them going with. I just think that the Cowboys defense will make some plays that will give them either defensive touchdown or some short fields to work with I disliked the Cowboys defense really dominating this game that defensive line. We know how important the line of scrimmage, isn't football. And I think the Cowboys dominate the defensive line and the offense ivine in this football game. So I don't see how the Redskins can win this game not tomorrow. So let's move on to the last game. Maybe the highest scoring game on the slate. It has the ability to be the falcons at the New Orleans Saints. We know how impressive the saints have been. Man. What can you say here? The falcons have had a tough season. It looks like they will miss the playoffs. If they do. In fact, turn it around. It has to be tomorrow. It must be tomorrow night. Do you think the falcons have a chance against the saints who are just rolling right now? No, I hate to say it, but the same sort of best if not one of the one of the best teams in football by far it's them the Rams and I'll still put the chiefs up there. But those three teams are headed shoulders above the rest. That's true. But you know, good teams can lose games. And with it being a division game. How much of a chance do you give the falcons tax pull off an upset tomorrow? The falcons were to win this game. Like thirty four to thirty one. Would you be? Surprised a little bit Twee, honest a little bit, right? But I mean, it's a divisional game at Ryan who yo- Jones, you could see a path for them winning, right? Like, maybe a high scoring game. Shootout. Sure. I could see that. Okay. Well, I still see the advantage going to. Do you think the falcons can stop this offense at although that's the question. Like do. You think Kamara Ingram? Michael Thomas trae Kwan Smith whose questionable by the way. Do you think that these guys can be stopped by that? Atlanta defense that's been one of the worst in the NFL easy. No. Yeah. Especially ingram. Who had a great game recently? They're just on this level in where you cannot stop them. Even if you had a gun and shot them the leg they still run for a good fifty yards. Camara is fast. He could probably hot by most people in the NFL. So what do you think the score will be tomorrow for the falcons at New Orleans? I don't see the falcons playing. Well, so give me a thirty eight to ten win for the saints..

"But who do you have I have is in internal Brown. He had five receptions hundred seventeen yards. Touchdown. I would have given it to both him and she Smith Schuster, but she shouldn't get a touchdown one hundred yards. So kind of really know were down his fantasy points. But Tony Brown was a key figure in the in the pigs for win over Jacksonville. Yeah. James Connor wasn't there? We'll get more on that later. But Ben office burger was trusting thirteen targets Antonio Brown gifts granted five receptions, but still hundred seventeen yards average twenty three point four yards a catch. So he got the job done. Yeah. I gotta talk about trae Kwan Smith wide receiver for the saints the rookie receiver he had a huge huge game yesterday. You know, he had a game earlier this year Washington where he caught drew Brees record breaking touchdown. He had three catches in that game in two touchdowns. But. Yesterday. Ten catches. He had thirteen targets. He led the saints targets. It looks like the defenses are focusing more on Michael Thomas, which is going to allow others in the passing game step up and trae was that guy yesterday. Ten catches one hundred and fifty seven yards and a touchdown. But again the targets what matters here thirteen targets. I like his future in this offense. He's young player. But he's what the smart quarterback. He's the quarterback is very accurate, and you want wide receivers with drew Brees and fancy football. You like those guys even if they are second or third options, you have a quarterback that you have a chance for big place. So he had a big game. What about another wide receiver? You wanna talk about? I actually got wants to fund digs thirteen receptions, one hundred twenty six yards and a touchdown another big game. Yes. A lot of big games for writing series. Like, you said I wake to Mike Evans's came. He was appointed. That was really low on. I think last week. I've said I wouldn't start him. Well, my advice would have been bad on that one because he had twenty nine fantasy points and he had a long touchdown reception. Six catches one hundred twenty yards. Touchdown. We'll see how he does from here on out. We don't know who's going to be the starting quarterback for the books moving forward as we know because they have benches Patrick again and Winston took over yesterday. So maybe Winston will be reinserted. We don't know. But Mike Evans really had a good game despite the controversy in the turmoil at that position yesterday. So. Anyone else you'd like to talk about? There's so many Julio at a touchdown catch yet another one that's is that two or three at least two. He is actually three three in a row three games. Well, took long enough six hundred and eighteen yards and touchdown. It's awesome. Yes. Absolutely. He's being putting up consistent numbers too. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Definitely. But also, I took up more from DJ more DJ more from Carolina seven hundred fifty seven yards and the touchdown gun over that twenty point Mark. So that was pretty cool for him. I don't think he's another young receiver. That's starting to play. Well, definitely let's move onto tendons. Not a lot to talk down tight end. We just move on. I mean, Jordan Reed, we should talk about him. He he scored yesterday. So he he actually led the position in points with sixteen point six was not a lot. He's one of my sons. Do you have stood? No, I don't wanna see stuff for titan. I got one more. How about old man in Tonio gates sixteen point five fantasy points? He scores a touchdown yesterday. He has eighty yards receiving, you know, not a lot of big gains from tight ends yesterday. And this is a Antonio gates his only thirteen percent of ESPN fantasy leagues, but he showed out, and you know, every once in a while he's going to have one these games. So yesterday was that game. Yeah defense. Sure. Let's go. I got the bears that interception return for touchdown was really the one that sealed the stud for me the got the job done. They made. Kirk cousins little uncomfortable in the pocket, which is very rare to do. And they. Yeah. This twenty points Vikings did but they got the intercession to touchdown that makes up for that for that amount of points. They scored but yet bears definitely played excellent bears..

"Maybe he had the bomb touched. I was just gonna throw in. He actually had to touch. That's right. He had a fumble recovery. Touchdown that I think didn't show up on a lot of fantasy platform. This weekend. Oh, they might be in there. Now say that that's going to get a just it. It will be there. Yes. He scored a touchdown. So if you are up by five points and you played against Mike Evans. Yeah. I believe it is in their it's in there now. Okay. At least from what I can see trae Kwan Smith ten for one fifty seven in a touchdown Thurs targets. And there was a tweet that trae Quan put out there or comment he made he said after the play he he caught the touchdown on drew Brees came out to him and said, what do you why do you think I threw us the ball? I trust you. And he said as a rookie and made me so happy and feel good, man. So feel real good. We're going to talk about both trae Kwan Smith and DJ momentarily. DJ more was seven for one fifty seven and a touchdown and. The rest of season though. I'll ping you right now. Trae Kwan DJ more, oh, baby. Joshua's chimed in. He says Yahoo still hasn't given Mike Evans the rushing touch sue. So we'll we'll see. Yeah. I think he SPN has trae Quander DJ Morressy season you'd have to pick right now. I would go more. Just because of the schedule while the schedules. Really nice. But yeah, you're you're correct. The schedule of the saints is very nice but schedule plus the opportunity of actually becoming the one the number one wide receiver option not I guess being the number two option for breezes. Yes. Bromley number one for Cam Newton Stefan dates thirteen from low. That's the stinky garbage drive. I I guess I should probably should. That goes for a curtain and they were going to deep safety defense. Prevent basically protect against the big play the fun digs ate them up underneath eighteen targets. Thirteen catches one twenty six one all of it pretty much in the last quarter. There was there was a drive as the the Vikings were trying to come back and Stefan digs caught three or four passes in a row. I can't recall he had to go off the field and get a breather because he was catching so many passes in a row. Yeah. It was amazing. My favorite part of his touchdown was when he pointed. Did you see this when he did the Enron you? Go back and watch the video he pointed down into the left to ask for the ball in a specific location before the throat. Ooh, I didn't see that. You know, you see the Randy moss old clips and throwing the hand of somebody putting the hand up. He literally just pointed like down to the left. He's like I want to right here. And then he got her at their nice. It's like what I do in the post. Post office in basketball. It'd be like, you know, point down. I wanna bounce pass. Give me an entry. No round ball. Sports allowed Jason fine football only to fund they atoms. Kenny G Julio touchdown Jones. Antonio brown. Keenan Allen Kyle put that in there. Yeah, nickname. I love it. Yeah. Touchdown Jones thirty three straight. Three weeks in a row it loud averages man to good. Yeah. But Kenny golladay with the fourteen targets out g if Marvin Jones is out for an extended period of time, which could happen. He's getting a second opinion on his knee. We don't know he obviously missed this week. But Kenny G. Yeah. He's too big. He he kind of reminds me of reminds me of a lot of different players. But Brandon Marshall when he was at when he was at his peak. He was too big to stop the targets from coming. And that's what Kenny golladay is like he's too big like if you have a small guy like I'll I'll give the example of like Brandin cooks when he was in New Orleans and you had injuries on the other side of the field. And and you look at brain coach man, he's gonna soak up targets if you press ranting cooks or you rotated coverage. He wasn't too big. You know, he wasn't very big Kenny golladay had fourteen targets made play after play. You look at the touchdown. He grabbed their defense that can stop that. You throw the ball twelve feet in the air. And he goes up and grabs it, and it's.

"Seen you do. Drunk of power drunk on something. I'll tell you that. What about tonight's winner? Maybe they'll be one that I said I'd say listen. If one of these teams really went out and just so massively other around we got Kansas City Chiefs team that went out there and hung fifty because as I think New Orleans that take those three teams New Orleans as a better defense in both those teams that Orleans is the more complete team of those teams, and we weren't saying that earlier like, wait a minute. This New Orleans defense are not what they were last year. All of a sudden, they have rounded back into form of what they were last which is amazing because this is the same team that lost the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and almost lost to the Browns. If the Browns had had a semblance of a kicker, not even a good kicker like an average NFL kicker. The saints would have started Owen to for the second straight year. But you're right. Just just understand what we're seeing here. Drew brees. I did he miss once. When throwing the Michael Thomas yesterday. I don't think he did. Or if he did it was late in the fourth quarter at one point he was nine for nine on targeting Michael Thomas yesterday, which goes right along with their season average. But over the last two weeks over the last two weeks. The saints outscored the opposition ninety nine to fourteen and my God, Mike in this day and age that fourteen is a hell of a lot more than the ninety nine zero and your love what the way they do it because we know about what Kamera does, but it was actually Ingram had over one hundred yards. We know what Michael Thomas does he was targeted four times four catches for ninety two yards. But it's opportunity man opportunity, and that's trae Kwan Smith, Trey got his opportunity when Ted Ted Ginn junior went on I on October. This kid got brought up and going along. And and obviously not right out of the gate. But here it is when you start making catches you start getting the confidence of your quarterback. And when you get the confidence a drew Brees and drew Brees. He was targeted thirteen times Drake watt. Smith was last night and had ten catches one hundred and fifty seven yards and a touchdown so opportunity you take advantage of it. He did drew Brees wasn't afraid to go to him. It was either that or throat. One of the hills that were out there as well. And they just have so many ways to go. It's amazing this team how well we talk about how well they drafted in the last couple of years, but some of the young guys they brought on we mentioned not only trae Quant Smith, but the saints a lot of the talk has been about signing veteran wide receivers they tried to bring in Dez Bryant. Obviously the injury. No one could have seen coming. They signed Brandon Marshall he wasn't active for this game. But you know, who they did call up Keith Kirkwood. Thank you and Austin and Austin Carr who had been up Austin Carr. One more productive college receivers, northwestern north western northwestern alum there and the key ki Kurth. Wow. Kirk Keith Kirk Kirkwood woman's crush Wednesday. I know on Notre Dame high right now. Yeah. A little drunk on something this morning. Oh boy. But I mean, you're getting and these are guys that drew Brees has vouched for that round. Their scout team there that they brought up. And now if you added production out of them down the stretch of the season or in spots when you need them because we know they've been concerned with having a true number two outside of Michael Thomas. Now, you've just added that embarrassment of wealth. And that's what this team has done. So well, they've continued to add in places where you it's not necessary. But they understand where they want to go and what they want to try to avoid from last year that has to be the case. And you know, what that speaks to is coaching and scouting development finding players that you think can work in your system. And then developing them for you, perhaps someone like Kirkwood come off the practice squad up to the rostrum do that that speaks to what Sean Payton and his staff done and by the way ferris bueller? Was absent nine times. Yeah. This is nine straight wins for Sean Payton and company. Well, listen, you are record is. So I didn't I didn't say we weren't pretty good just nine in one right now. And we've got a lot of season left. So I'm not. Downplaying what we've done, you know. So those guys are in there playing music loud. You want me to smile? More small. You just listen to you just enjoy now. And we can't say enough about the new weapons of Kirkwood or Trey quit again Smith. No catches one catch. No catches. No catches. I four games and then three a game for a few games. And then all of a sudden he breaks out with this one is building confidence. You know? He's a rookie from UCF. So, you know, you know, he came from a successful program. We'll talk about obviously about that a little later but building confidence with those other players. But I still say we always know New Orleans is going to score. It's that other side of the ball. Playing three sacks yesterday. Again. I mean, they're they're playing some good ball outside of those first couple of games are starting to round back into what we saw which I think makes them the best and most dangerous team in the NFL does. Now, what we also have to acknowledge an account for is on the other side. The Philadelphia Eagles are a mash unit right now. And the biggest difference between last year and this year is they were hurt last year and they managed to freakishly overcome. Now, they've regressed to what normally happens when you get as much as you do. Do when you're starting centers out for the majority of the game. When you're defensive backfield down three guys at this point all across the board. You have lost quality on that team in a league where you just can't do it at that rate and expect to have years where you somehow wind up winning the SuperBowl. Yeah. Listen, people need to understand just how out of the box. Crazy. What happened last year was it? Let's just say in any way, shape or form the top five positions on an NFL football team or quarterback a guy that catches the ball a guy that defends the catcher a guy that protect someone trying to take your quarterbacks head off and the pass rusher. Right. Those those are the top five, right? Two of their top five last year were injured. Carson Wentz goes out as the MVP Jason Peters, one of the greatest left tackles as a converted tight end of all time goes out, and they go on to win the Super Bowl that just doesn't happen, by the way. Did you see the salt in this? When it was forty four thousand seven and they went for it. And. Sean. Malcolm Jenkins, and he saw the match up and they threw it long and they got a touchdown. And Malcolm in the heat of the moment football, Sean Payton, again number was there. I get it. But my my thought I don't want to hear a word of anybody today about all of the saints shouldn't do that. You know, those movies when you want to keep going really fast on the highway, but you don't want to sit in the driver's seat anymore. And you throw that piece of wood on the gas, pedal, and wedge it into the seat. So you're going to thousand miles an hour. That's their offense. Correct. That's what they do. And they don't apologize for it. And they shouldn't apologize for. So I don't want to hear anybody say, oh, they didn't need to do that. You don't want to do it stop them. And right now, no one stopping as Bill Belichick said in his double bird tour two thousand seven I was just giving the defense an opportunity to stop. There you go by the way, I know because obviously we're gonna get ready to see one of the best teams in the NFC one that we think, you know, saints Rams could be NFC playoff. I would give a lot of money for on the way to that in the NFC playoffs. Saints bears. Oh, yeah. Let me see that defense. Go up against a saints offensive line. That has been one of the less talked about better offensive lines. And drew Brees quarterback sign me up. Yeah. I I'm all for that one..

"And and and and lock in and focus on what we have to do to play our best football. You know, we're not worried about the defense playing. We'll just worried about us in our execution. Saints win forty eight to seven over the eagles today talking to Alvin Kamara on ESPN radio and not to go away from your performance because you were tremendous today, but trae Kwan Smith was unbelievable. How good is he and what does he mean to your football team, man? So is great. You know, he came in this summer. And you know, we we all knew he was a player, you know. He just he's just taking advantage of opportunities. You know, he's he's a he's a great like I said a great player. Great athlete. You know, he's starting to come on, man. You know, it's it's it's good to see, you know, if I think about like me last year, you know, just just how he bawling like, you know, I it starts to get fun. When it when it clicks. And I think it's clicking for him. We appreciate you coming on, man. And I want to throw one last thing as you guys traded for Eli apple you got another Buckeye down. There. You've got them all over your team. And that probably hurt you a little bit. But if you ever get a chance to get Mike and Eli together, and you could ask you Mr Thomas about what he used to do you li- in practice? It'll be a fun little opportunity for you. All right. You know, how much trash Mike toxin? It'll be it'll be entertaining. But thanks for coming on. Congratulations on the win as the saints. Beat the eagles forty eight to seven Alvin Kamara thirteen carries seventy one yards. Oh, by the way throws in a reception for thirty seven and a touchdown. And that's your cell. The saints. Do what they spread the wealth around. Everybody gets touches everybody gets scores and who wouldn't wanna play offense for Sean Payton, and by the way enjoy tonight because you got the falcons on Sunday night football. I mean, it is going to be the falcons this isn't a 'nigma because I firmly believe the saints are the best team in the NFL. I think we saw them beat the Rams I think that that was a statement game. And they just they just keep making statements. Whether that's bearing the Bengals remember they dropped fifty one on the Bengals. Now, they've dropped forty eight on Philadelphia and you're going to play the falcons now at at home in New Orleans. The falcons don't stand a chance. I just don't see how they win that game. Here's the bigger thing to me as you mentioned those two games. How many points they scored offensively? We can sit here and talk about the chiefs, and we can talk about the Rams and all the points that these two teams put up, but to me, it's the fact that until the very end of the game, they'd only given up seven to Cincinnati ultimately being fourteen and then they held Philadelphia whose offense isn't great. But still have a lot of weapons they held them to seven points today. This saints defense to me is what makes them the best team in the NFL. It's not just. The fact they can score points. It's the Sean Payton understands how to play a total football game meshing those two sides together. And they for defense started off the season, not pointing very well. They're really starting to hit their stride them. Well, and they're better than they were with Greg Williams. And I think this is the best defense they've had since Greg Williams coordinated that defense. And I think Cam Jordan doesn't get the credit that he deserves and he's just so instrumental today he's a captain on that team. Now, he's he's really he's just an incredible performer, and I wouldn't wanna be a cowboy fan because if you look at the schedule they play again the falcons this Thursday excuse me in prime time. They go to Dallas and next.

But instead of going for the extra point they went for two couldn't convert Ron Rivera explaining his reasoning. Well, I think you go for two on the road to win the game. That's what I did. The end of the day was to say the coin toss is gonna go on our favorite was today. We're gonna slap them. So why not go for two kicker Graham Gano had missed field goal in extra point. And Rivera did say that factored into the decision as well.

"And joining us right now is Matthew berry the talented Mr. rodeo, Matthew. How are you? I'm good gentlemen. How are you? We're excellent Matthew and let me start with this. So a big headline in the NFL this week is a desk. Bryant found a job. He's going to the saints to play with drew Brees. They already have Michael Thomas. So I would imagine that the fantasy impact is. Minimal. But you would know better than me is desert. Good pickup this week. No, no. He's not a good pick up. This week is not a good pick up for the season. I'm fine with the saints picking him up for wide receiver death depth. I should say wide receiver depth camera its place on I r but you think about the saints who are one of the run. Heaviest teams in the NFL top five in terms of run percentage. They're one of the teams in the league that run the fewest three wide receiver sets. So where does is gonna play is gonna play in the slot? Right. Because you've got trae Kwan Smith on the outside. And then you've got Michael Thomas with his twenty nine percent target share. That's not going away anytime soon. So the best case scenario for Dez Bryant who to my eyes looked done last year. Couldn't get separation. Right. But the best case you could get for Dez is that he's the fourth option on that offense behind chimera behind Michael Thomas. I think behind trae Kwan Smith and possibly behind Benoit's and their tight in. But even if you want to say, you know, no, not always says Bryant, blah, blah. He's gonna. To be the third wide receiver last three years. The number three passing option in the saints often averages eleven point eight points per game. Why'd it would be wide receiver thirty eight this year. So you're talking about basically, a barely top forty wide receiver, and that's assuming he knows the playbook. He's in shape, and he has a connection with drew Brees from day one, which I just don't see happening. I again, I think it's nice depth than maybe he catches a couple of touchdowns between here and the end of the season because he wins a fifty fifty jump ball in the end zone. But I can't imagine starting him in getting any kind of consistent fantasy productions..

"Like there's no middle ground here is not like there. Tight matchup. It's they get blown out or they seem to show up. I feel like they're bad. I really do. I don't. I don't. Sightings of the Redskins. I think the titans are better than the Redskins. I don't think the Redskins are a good team Redskins. Well, got off to such a hot start week, one against Arizona, and I think it just kind of skewed what we believe in them. But I, yeah, I mean, I then they lost to the colts. But then they came back and got a big win, and then they come out of the by and have a big loss this games at home. Forty four and a half point over under there. One point favorites against the Panthers, something. So if you know Adrian Peterson, Chris Thompson, we said, we thought there goes away. Team is questionable. I mean, there's just not a lot of excitement around the starting an offense of peace. I, in my opinion, the only guy really want to start if he's healthy and active is, is Chris Thompson, because I feel like he is the one that's guaranteed to be utilized if he's healthy and on the field, I would still be perfectly confident starting Jordan Reed. I realize he had a putrid game with one reception last week, but that's, I mean, Jordan Reed is still a better option than most of the middling. You know, second half is the tight end seven through twelve. I'd rather start read. It's a lot easier on the other side of the ball. You're starting Cam Newton. Washington is given up multiple touchdowns the quarterbacks every week except for the one where they played Sam, Bradford. And then Christian McCaffrey has been amazing. I've tried to target him in a number of leagues unsuccessfully, but. He just feel like his floors so hot on a bad week, like last week started. He had very few points to the first half of the game. Didn't matter Washington's allowing nearly seven receptions a game to the running back position as well. Christian McCaffrey, you had no concerns about starting, but he is going to be very successful this week. Meanwhile, the wa- the wide receivers for Carolina. I avoiding them if at all possible, even the scrumptious one. I mean, he's I don't want to see him face up against Norman and the Washington DB's, or they're holding wide receivers and check, and you're definitely starting Cam in this match except for trae Kwan Smith, of course, on the road. Heck, yeah, line them up. Put them out there. I, I'm surprised that they are favorites. I am too. I would have thought heads up heads up. I get it. I'm going to take Caroline. Oh, yeah, we're in. Is this a five star Carolina's going away with the victory here? Wide receivers on Carolina are like downgraded versions of the Jags wide out. So you not only can you not guess who will perform on a week to week basis, but even if they do perform, it's not good, right. It's crowded is going to have the best game. He's going to get five for fifty. Five. You're talking on the, yeah, but Washington signed course both sides of the ball here. You don't. You don't really want. I will say this funchess at the very end of of last week you got overshadowed by Graham Gano sixty three yard. Awesome. Kick man. I love kickers. But he pulled something and ran to the sideline and was hurt. I've been trying to find. I haven't found much news on that, but I do worry a little bit about that because it was so late in the game. So I, yeah, I'm, I'm avoiding all wide receivers here. Both sides, the five, zero Rams take on the two and three Broncos in Denver. The Broncos are seven point home underdogs. Oof. Fifty two and a half point over under in a game with that kind of line. The Broncos defense has been bad. This is a change over, and I think a lot of people thought, hey, they've always had this defense that can get it done in. That'll be enough because if you have a game manager, I case keenum with a good defense, you're set up to succeed. The problem has been, the defense has been bad, and you've put case keenum in a position where he has to be more than a game manager..

"Drew Brees breaking Peyton Manning's all time yardage record passing yardage record. A Monday night football. Last night is the saints route the Washington football team forty three to nineteen in a game. Where drew Brees it's trae Kwan Smith on a sixty two yard touchdown of all things to break. That record is drew Brees also on pace to break Peyton Manning's career touchdown record, which you would know if you saw Peyton Manning's video that he made to air quotes congratulate drew Brees. Saul tremendously on brand for Peyton Manning. Who I would have been surprised was also cutting some Saudi deli meat just so we could reference his old commercial cut that meet cut that meet guy really has been a partisan great ads over the years. So we have that record breaking performance from drew Brees last night in an absolute rout of the game, Washington and the rest of the NFC east licking their wounds after this weekend, and we'll get to. What to do about the most disappointing division in football? In just a little bit. But we also had record breaking performances last night and definite routes in major league baseball. So we did have to sweeps culminated last night. The Astros beat the Indians eleven to three win that series three to nothing in. What was just an utter destruction of my fathers hopes and dreams. And now a cities that hopes hopes and dreams rest squarely on the shoulders of Baker Mayfield at this point. The astros. This is sort of what they expected of themselves. We remember Justin Verlander coming out very early in the season. Rebuking all the talk about the Red Sox and the Yankees and the rest of these teams that were the defending champions. And so now, they continue to make no bones about what they believe is coming George. Springer Astros outfield talked about the task of trying to repeat this one. You know, I I.

"I, this is an absolute worthwhile, low risk investment by them. It's also good for Corey Coleman. Now, I'm not saying it's great because I think he goes to Steph Miller good for situation where you don't have a locked and loaded starting quarterback that you know is going to be good. It's not a team that you expect to pass a lot, but he is now the wide receiver to with the chance to be the wide receiver one right for for his franchise. Whereas he had been completely buried behind Jarvis Landry behind Josh Gordon behind Duke Johnson. You know, the possibly behind Antonio Calloway this, right? And I think Calloway's a big part of this trae. I think Gordon in Callaway. You should feel good about both of their situations because of this trait for them, trading the depth of Corey. Coleman tells me that Gordon is coming back and it tells me that Calloway has his made strides. Now, the report about Gordon right now is very close to returning. So he's very, he's very close to returning. They're talking about, well, if he doesn't report by Tuesday, then he is not eligible to become a restricted free agent this next season. But the the word from Brown's camp is they will not hold it against him. If he's if he does not show up by Tuesday, we'll we'll see what that actually means used as when hard not in higher starts, yes. And Kenneth Dixon returned to practice for the ravens news for those that believe in Kenneth Dixon and Brandon Coleman finally released by the saints. Basically, you have a situation where I think it's beaks. Well, if cameras health? Yes, the and this is this is the type of news I have been waiting for on Cameron Meredith because his knee injury was devastating, but very early last very well. It's pretty season this past year, but I needed to needed some proof of evidence that the saints felt like he was going to be ready. It also it could be great news for trae Kwan Smith as well. Their third round wide receiver draft pick. Yeah, will you? You've got the double up as well, right? He avoided the pop and then there Ryan, hey, we can Meredith is and Mike gun racks right now, he's injured and so they're, they're just wanting to make room.

"Ball security becomes. More important obviously what you call What you run. Sometimes can change but Got to. Be, able to just do it all. Look you're going to have, to be sometimes this is football weather although the saints are going, to get 'em dome games this year he'll, have an opportunity for weather to impact. Especially when it comes. Into the playoffs you're planning. Outdoor facility hopefully that's, not the case so. It's homefield advantage but, it impacted today and I know Bob he's going to tell you I, wasn't anything, to do with. The the the weather. All believe in that's what everybody's. Saying but certainly the weather didn't. Impact here's Payton's cut to Tim pains initial takeaways. From today out at his press conference I. Thought defensively was a. Better practice offensively I thought we struggled we let mistakes then compound become. All of a sudden a bigger, mistake Over turning the ball over so we'll look at the film Well there's going to be a lot to. Look at on both sides here Yeah I really am interested in this quarterback competition and, we're just looking for one day, where either Tom savage, or taste some hill not really j. t. Barrett I it would take A couple of incredible preseason game. Performances by j. t. Barrett for him to sniff making the fifty three man roster right so we're really talking about Tom savage and tastes hill competing for the backup to drew Brees I still think they're going to bring in somebody I know Bobby and. I, were doing the show yesterday and we were, kind of going through the guys who might become available later in preseason one that, stood out to me if you, go to Arizona You've got Mike Glennon entrenched as the third string guy in Arizona behind Sam. Bradford and behind their first round draft pick Josh. Rosen I don't think that might and going to make the fifty three man roster they're in Arizona and we remember that Sean Payton he's kind of a little bit with Mike Glennon when he was drafted Was that in the. Twenty eleven I believe Mike Glennon came out in two twenty eleven twenty twelve so there's a little bit of. History there and if the quarterbacks continued to struggle and obviously they did today, and hill just I'm just being Frank, with the has. Not had a good day training camp yet I know yet is the operative. Word there it's, still early were five practices in. Many more to go and the preseason games are going away pretty heavy I just wonder though You think the saints bring somebody in that quarterbacks, spot and, I saw you know I was I was, back in the office but sometimes what I do wanna prepping for the show and the sometimes I got. One ear on sportstalk I'd like to hear what the college are saying here with Bob Ming, Christian Dussen everybody's saying so I can get a little feedback to. Us on this show one of the thing I saw as I also pay attention to the text, line a little bit see what. You all are. Saying it's sports stock I. Saw a few texts Saying. That is Barrett. Going to be the guy No j. t. Barrett is not going to be the guy J. t. Barrett has had Not a good. Camp to put it mildly I think he's had an Elliot's. One interception all five days I. Could be wrong about that I think he's had one interception all five days Another thing that we saw it. Tastes hill using his using his legs using his running ability I was talking to. Bobby yesterday said well you know the fans are gonna go. Nuts in the preseason on taste. Milk assuredly he's going to have one of those Scrambled drills or he gets downfield runs for thirty forty. Yards and the fans start going nuts It's probably is going to happen Let's see though tastes them got to become a better passer and more accurate passer for. Him to be the backup here but getting back to what, I saw on the text line. Kyle was lost my own thoughts their what I saw on, the, text line was somebody saying hey if drew Brees, got injured the season's over, Anne starting quarterback in the league it's injured season's over what are. You even talking about backup quarterback he. Shouldn't even be talking about. That what I just completely disagree I've talked about this at length on this show on the special show yesterday with Bobby that when, you have enough talent on, NFL rosters on your NFL roster You can survive that. Devastating quarterback injury just happened last year with Philadelphia we go back ten different Super Bowl champions have had a backup quarterback start the, Super Bowl think about that Been fifteen, change Super Bowls now so that's about one, out of every five. Super Bowl champions Has been quarterbacked by. A backup quarterback it's hard you've got to have talents elite talent and. Depth across the roster but if you have that in place You. Can win with a viable backup quarterback Viable being the operative word I am. Not sure the saints have that right now Hammett seen enough from Tom savage remember. Missed a couple of. Days with what looked like an. Illness and certainly tastes them hill has been erotic we're, gonna take a break. Here taking your calls. Coming back 504-260-1870 the phone number five, zero four to, six so one eight seventy I wanna talk about the, saints receivers third down efficiency and we'll have a little, sound from trae Kwan Smith the saints rookie receiver coming.
