"vance mcdonald donald" Discussed on Establish The Run

"And that was something that would have been almost impossible to anticipate but you know at the end of the day like a multitude of factors contributed to Odell Beckham being one of the biggest bus in all fantasy and he was one of the guys that like. You wanted to a keep betting on him. You know but the explosiveness wasn't there. You're the coaching staff did not do a good job in Cleveland. They were immediately fired after the season. Even even the the front office was was a rearranged of moved on from the GM John Dorsey so just a a multitude of factors. I think that he is going to be a really interesting guy to talk about. Twenty twenty I was thinking about where we're going to have them already. I was thinking maybe I think he just wears. ADP might be. I think he might be around that tooth return this year. Sure and he. He's probably a guy that's GonNa make a big difference in tilt a lot of fantasy legion twenty twenty based on how much draft capital how much draft capital took them. Yeah and we're going to buy some time the next month or so about the coaching changes. And we'll talk about what happens with the previous regime and what we think's GonNa happen with the next regime For them to not let todd. MFN Mahnken call plays at any point during the year when things were going sideways was why is crazy to me and I'm not I'm not saying Oh dulcie would have been different if monkey was calling plays but I would have at least like to find out you know what I mean so We'll see we'll talk more about coaches on a future pot I saw a one statistic on the browns. They scored more touchdowns. More I drive touchdown touchdowns in any team in the elitist I drive. And that's Todd Mahnken dialing up a script and then after that Freddie Kitchens had to call place and Dan you know just the the the bottom fell out on the browns yet Okay let's get to another wrong here and You know a lot of this can be blamed on injury right A Ben Roethlisberger was hurt in we two in. Of course I'm talking about Juju Smith Schuster. Juju Smith Schuster Two point one Sixteenth overall. We had him. I mean look Juju Smith Schuster so young. I think as soon as been rothlisberger gets hurt the entire offense just tanks right. QB play was absolutely abysmal tanked Vance McDonald and a tank. Dante moncrieff tanked himself. Probably well before. Ben Rothlisberger tank but when Mason Rudolph in Devon Hodges etc.. It's really hard to to have a big year. That said I think Jus Stock is going to sink like a stone ahead of twenty twenty even though he's very very young. So how much of what went wrong. Judy blame on Ben's injury in jujubes injuries in all the injuries that Pittsburgh's offense has in. How much do you think maybe we were just a little bit? You high on Juju in general now. I think that I mean Ben going out for the season in week to just totally I mean he wasn't. He wasn't just their quarterback like he ran the offense he hand picked after they got rid of todd. Haley he handpicked his quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner you know and then all of a sudden randy fichtner had to like do do work with Ben Rothlisberger on the shelf and you know they tried to. You know there was a time where they ran like a bunch of trick plays like with tale and unlike the wildcat Jalen Samuels on having a big role and then you know they. They rotated out Mason. Rudolph when he stunk up the joint for for duck hodges and then codgers got hurt and they went back to Mason Rudolph you know it was just. It was an absolute disaster of a season for the steelers offense and and that was reflected in the trickle down effect of Ben Ross for going out and dealing with a lot of injuries to James Connor was was banged up a lot Vance McDonald. Donald was banged up but You know this offense just wasn't the same without without a quarterback catalyst and everybody felt the effects. I think that Juju Smith Schuster is an obvious obvious obvious by in dynasty in an obvious bounce back guy for twenty twenty you do have to worry about is. Is Ben going to stay healthy though. Yes so you know that'll that'll be. How we we have to weigh the positives and the negatives Juju Smith Schuster heading heading into next season? Yeah I mean there were times during the season the steelers weren't even running like a pro style. Offense they were trying to run like some might crazy like triple option like just total nonsense is out there and obviously have to disaster for June Let's get so one that we got right now is being higher than market on Amari Cooper. You had him at twenty first first overall on your top one fifty. ADP settled in around thirty two. Thirty three Amari Cooper played all sixteen games. But I thought down the stretch she really struggled with something was going on like nagging lower body in what sticks out to me. Is that week. Sixteen Eagles game were like everything was on the line. And they've rotating Amari Cooper out in favor of cave on Austin but overall you know you. Despite that kind of end of season mass. I thought it was marred. Cooper's best season you know seventy nine catches almost twelve hundred yards eight touchdowns and I think part of that or maybe. I don't know about chicken egg but Dak Prescott taking a leap forward also certainly made a big difference for Amari Cooper. But what's your take on Amari Cooper this past Twenty thousand season outlook going forward on. Amari yeah I was glad that we were. We were very high. On Amari Cooper. We stayed high on Amari Cooper even despite fight you remember during training camp where it came out that he was dealing with a foot injury in some places who was characterized as a torn plantar FASCIA. But Louis Don Dr Child here at pro football doc on doc on twitter. He said that it's just. It's something that he was at Amari. Cooper would be able to manage throughout the season. Maybe cost him some in practice time but unlikely to affect his production on the field. And it didn't and you know one thing that I I really liked to bank on for wide. Receivers is quarterback wide receiver established connections. You know on field chemistry. That's something that you know. I I should have factored in more to into Todo BECA because Baker may although it seems like he was GonNa work on paper. You know that that chemistry was not there it was there. which are Angie had a great year But in Dallas like That instant report that Dak Prescott Amari Cooper showed in the second half of the two thousand eighteen season carried over right into you twenty nineteen and he was a difference maker for the majority of the year. You Know I. He's his. The game is so perfect for doc because back is not an anticipation passer. Dak is a see it throw it passer like you can even look like you splits versus as main coverage and versus zone. He struggles against zone. He needs to see. See the route come open. And who's maybe the best route runner in the league. Amari Cooper you know they are just a match made in heaven. I hope for the cowboys sick. That them deciding to pays each doesn't cost them Amari Cooper because he's the perfect receiver for Dak Prescott. Yep and we'll talk doc. More about Amari Cooper as we get into free agency here but I agree I think Dallas has to make a huge priority lockup Amari cooper art. Let's get to one that we got wrong and this one You know is at least partially or mostly on me. I was high on devante Freeman. devante Freeman We had twenty Third Evans. Top One fifty I thought. Would vaunted the freemen having so much time off to get healthy with having Coleman gone with the offensive line being Renovated I thought that it was setting setting up perfectly for devante Freeman and this Atlanta offense score a lot of points is just inland was was unable to run the football they lost. Offense climates injury. But I think even if he was healthy he lost some work to judge Ito and it seemed like like the injuries that devante picked up or fears kind of caught up with him. He's not as explosive So a lot of regrets on devante Freeman out. What did you think happened to Devante this year yet? I mean you're we're also betting on an offense offense that you know we consider to be trustworthy in it was trustworthy. Assist the Falcons. They lost their first round. Pick Pick Chris Lindstrom a starting guard early in the season two to a an injury that cost him almost the entire year. And it's kind of a similar situation to what happened with David. Johnson like devante Freeman. Play two games in two thousand eighteen. He comes back he just stepped slower. You know he was not nearly as explosive in two thousand nineteen mm-hmm and you're right. He lost more work than anticipated to guys. Like you to Smith Later in the year. Brian Hill. They even try to involve Quadri Alison at times. And I mean he just he just wasn't the same guy. I think that the Falcons might look to the draft to replace devante Freeman outright. This offseason. Yeah he's only twenty seven years old you know it's it's it's doesn't sound old especially considering I'm thirty seven now but but but it's crazy man Twenty seven avenue looks like Devante Freeman is running low on gas at best but I also think that this falcons run game was kind of broken. You know like I remember that game with Brian Hill was Kinda like the the mega truck on decay and like Bryan. He'll never had a chance to get going either. So is what it is Art One that we got right was being very very low on Antonio Brown Internal Brown's ADP. I think by the end settled in around twenty two he was going before that For much of the Much of the earlier all Season Avenue had him at twenty nine and this was before actually any of your mental illness stuff came up right. This was all like on field football stuff where the reasons that you were low on on in Tony Brown the mental something start coming out until later in training camp after The top fifty and everything was already out Looking back to the on field stuff for Antonio Brown I know it's hard to separated but Why what went into you being low on Antonio Brad Sofa top of my head. I think you know Derek Carr is never been aggressive downfield passer. Antonio Brown is one of the best vertical receivers of all time and Ben Rothlisberger is one of the best vertical passers in the NFL..

"Do do slide he had to think of that if i saw my running back slide i'd make the no if you're watching the live chat right the note twenty twenty drafts we're taking a running back pretty early early this dude slid out all know if he could be are running back i've never seen the runningback slide i'm giving him a pink slip as soon as i can a running back cast lot you can't slide you just can't do that you i don't think he can hold up and i think because he can't hold up i think the steelers have to invest in a back next year they've gotta bring somebody in i mean the steelers are down to what happens brother potentially as the third running back they have to bring another guy i'm not suggesting that you spend spend a lot of draft capital with a high pick running back i'm not saying you do the rashard mendenhall but they need a running back he slid i'm sorry a dollar ninety nine from the unemployed antonio brown who says conner is like de will referring to the angela williams hard-nosed says we need a bell media lady on bell butt naked robbed robbed but they could end rob and i i got a kick out of the jets dangling him on the trade wire man that was hilarious dad was i had people email me saying should the steelers think about vada and there was no no they should not no no no no i personally i disagree with you on and the connor thing yes he's lid yes it's a bad look reminded me of someone sliding headfirst into first base baseball you just don't do it i don't know for me i think conor is is capable but like you said his style is not conducive to playing in a sixteen game schedule therefore i think that's when jalen samuels becomes extremely important and i think the jalen samuels is developing into a very very well rounded running back would you agree i agree but here's the problem the bigger problem for connor it's the coach does not want want to do running back by committee the coach is used to running wheels off running backs he's not a running back by committee guy and we've never never seen him manage his backs like that he's going to run through their wheel salt loss in unfortunately for james connor his wills are not pirellis no they are not so we'll see how his shoulder holds up this sunday mother he gets in the game but there's a question in a live chat is this individual has asked us probably about three times not a super chat question but he clearly wants the answer i fiddle take the time to answer it necessary noah he's jeffersonians do you think because the steelers as played a game against for a year or two ago that they will have a better preparation against him coming into this sunday i think so i don't know how much you know when you say better i don't know if it's you know they're going to prepare fifty percent better seventy five percent better but in general the more tape that you have on a guy i think the better prepared that you can be specifically if you prepare for a guy in this is a case where it's not just game film but they know his skill set well oh for preparing against him however i think it's going to be a little bit different because to dealing with the frank right system and and how he operates in that system but i think having played brusett i think they are comfortable in knowing what his skill set is what he can do how he moves in the pocket how he's got some ability he's got a pretty strong arm so seeing him definitely gives them a leg up however you know how much is the point of contention dave brought this up but it made me really think the colts say the chargers have won three games in one of those games against the colts i didn't realize they beat the colts this year and so you know you can get into this game will they be dan and we'd be damn and this and that he's we can beat the NFL anyone anyone can win any given week i personally believe that angles who are benching andy dome by otherwise iraq iraqi baby bre sets a cia he's a different beast he's he's on a running quarterback so he doesn't scare hear me he can run but he's not he's not a lamar jackson or a shawn watson where tuck hit and run is a dynamic arsenal or weapon in their arsenal personal i should say so i think he's a little bit more statuesque if the steelers can get right on the outside linebacker in the defensive front i think they can get home it would be really interesting but real quick antonio brown who's unemployed and is giving money dr shows we really appreciate it dollar ninety nineties here's the money for that basic jersey or doc i'm not buying a devon hodges jersey jersey maybe get eight add that to what get an aide eight yeah it just adds isn't rudolf six and doc is six rough his two eight eight man i knew the numbers numbers get at eight in get a duck rudolph sorta sorta like turn duck in ducking john madden exactly what else you have plants let's just break down the game i don't you think this game's going to look at an office inside of football before we get into the question of this show gimme your thoughts on the office how do you think this offense matches up against against the colts defense i wanna i wanna know who's running the ball for the steelers that's gonna be interesting to me also i think he to say but i actually there are times where i think BJ finney can be an upgrade over ramon foster so if i agree i hydrate if foster is out with a concussion than i think finish stepping it'll be fine they'll be fine in that regard now pounces calf injury lingers that's a different different story altogether now you're talking about juggling the offense justin houston has still had a really good pass rusher and he can recent havoc but the steelers strength on the offensive line is pass protection this is a game daddy mason rudolph is going to have to make those a specific plays that he missed on monday he's going to have to make those plays to win the deep passes to deontay john's that he just overthrew rub the underthrown pass to juju the underthrown pass advance mcdonnell the passes behind the receivers over the middle this is a game where the opportunities are not going to be plentiful as they were on monday night you have to cash in on those and so for me i don't i don't think the steelers offense ability like dominate anyone that i don't see this as a huge a you look at cisco or seattle or new england and and you saved us defense is legit i don't necessarily think that with the colts i think they're good but i don't think they're upper-echelon middle of the road i think that if they can run the football i'll use roosevelt next again regardless of who's back there let mason rudolph push the ball down the field that they can ask successfully course appoints their average of points has has had to go up right because they scored twenty seven so they were what twenty point five tick they're probably around twenty to a game mm-hmm it's gonna be moving in the right direction yes gonna protect it's gonna particularly i think you're spot on i think they've got to be able to run the ball in this game name and i think they have to the colts play a lot of cover too i think they have you have to be able to attack the seams and cover too so this is a game where right like to see them you know really attacked to safety split run some post stuff run some drag some underneath stuff trying to hit a deep post host to try to really throw it in between the numbers i think they're going to have to really attack the seems an attack in between the number as well and they're going to have to run the football i mean this is a game where hopefully if they can run it they could stay on schedule so i mean do you think we'll get the predictions later but you know is this a game where you know the steelers are struggling on offense in your thought there it's going to take a little bit of it's going to be some tough sledding chopping wood or do you think they can come on really have their way with this coach defense it's tough for me to say that this offense is gonna come out and have their way with anybody right now until i see him do it but at the the same time i think it comes down to two things that i want to see them do they did this pretty well on monday night number one lands is the b word is eight on the time balance balance the tasks and the run okay second for the love of all things holy don't don't be afraid to put juju smith schuster in the slot dominates in the slot because most teams are not going to take their best s. cornerback and moved them into the slot they're going to put their mike hilton type in the slot puts us you over my killed and he'll win that match up nine out of ten times lives that's when they saw success against miami that's also wouldn't you saw some things actually on the outside are open up as well use him there be creative but someone asked this is something i don't know if you had planned for this on a you'd ask dave a bunch of questions ron s a question do you think that the tight it ends need to be more involved in this office bingo ding ding ding ding ding ding ding h- you get the gold prize you found a willy wonka ticket ticket to the willy wonka factory you found the golden ticket absolutely i mean you've gotta physical freak show in vance mcdonald donald trump needs to be attacking guys in the scenes you have to you have to utilizing entire football field if defense has a feel for what areas to the football field you want to target into pass game they're gonna flood those areas and they're gonna make it harder for you to complete those passes yes that is part of the maturation of mason rudolph is he going to have to incorporate tight ends and be able to attack the middle of the field he's gonna have to do it i think you're absolutely right now i didn't get a chance to listen to the stat geek show so i'm not sure what numbers dave pointed out but if you want more information on that you know make sure you check out the stack each show because dave definitely chimed into that auburn defense aside a football i think this is all about stopping the run i mean indianapolis indianapolis wants to wake up go to bed get off the bus and run the football and established spread you out they're gonna hit e braun they're gonna hit doyle they're gonna hit t. y. hilton but all of it is built behind the running game they're gonna try to grind you impound to mac dynamic back and this there's gonna be a great test you know one of the guys in the live chat earlier talked about the impact of to it not being around you're going to see it here and you're going to see a particularly in the running game because i think this is a game both often supplies are very good in pass protection i think the colts have given up a couple of you or saxton the steelers i think they were wanting to maybe going into this game maybe two in one now whatever it is but i don't think there's gonna be a ton of pressure on both sides.

"They have what he gets. A helmet will depend a lot on Vance McDonald and his his health whether he's able to play it's a numbers game in Davis. Scofield is ridiculously good at predicting the inactive list so he's a guy to ask and if he's in the live chat he he does his prediction article every Saturday before a Sunday game of savvy curious to see if he thinks he'll get a hat at this week but I don't feel so. How are you feeling about the steelers weapons in the passing game. I mean as I said it out loud you know. I I was cringing. What when I said those wide receivers and I didn't even at Switzer I mean Switzer they have three. They have three wider like I is. Do you feel like this wide. Receiver core is good enough to consistently beat eight-man coverage not right now I think I think they're getting there. I think the deontay Johnson is really improving a lot. What if you watch the game again. I really felt that he was. He's doing little things that he's starting to figure out as as a rookie it takes time. He's he's coming back to the football. You know he's learning when to cut off his route. His report with Mason Rudolph is is really developing. What's really ticking me off off. Though is how there's no report seemingly between James Washington in Mason Rudolph two guys that played four years of college football together. Everyone just assumed that they would go out and it would be like just pick up where they left off if you're GONNA win on Sunday I'm going to save right now. James Washington is going to have to makes a place period. Why are they targeting and he got one target a game. Now I know some of the game plan was was more toward you know a bald. He was talking about the short passing game in fact a running backs retargeted seventeen times in that game. I think the wide receivers were targeted less than ten times so it was clearly the the type game plan that focused on the short passing game and really attacking in the short to intermediate levels. Why is he not getting targets but he's getting a ton of snaps well he. He is believe it or not and this is something that puts out there. I'll throw it up on the screen there. He is considered one of their better blocking receiver so that's one of the reasons he's getting a lot of snaps is that he is out there helping to block on those obvious or those running downs but in terms of targets. I don't know why he's not getting targets and I don't know if it's EAS- knots getting separation I don't. I'm not sure I wish I did now you would that sounds like you know like he's out there to block. You know when a when a lady goes out with a guy just because he's a nice guy but he's not really all that attractive. That sounds like he's a good blocker like like the guy that had only the dead. That's it's that simple. Fact has only every everything to do with why he's playing. A lot has nothing to do targets because if he's run blocking they're not gonNA throw the ball anyways obviously but question is why are they not targeting him. That's what I wanted to do. I mean I don't I don't. I don't know I mean any he time other than highs ward. Let me throw that caveat out there other than hines ward whatever you're talking about a wide receiver and one of his best S. attributes is blocking. That's not a good thing I I understand that. I just want to see him. You get a chance because every time we've seen him on the field in the preseason. It's been two straight years now when he's given a chance in terms of combat catches and things of that nature he seems to make the play and so I wanna see I guess I keep on waiting for them to have a game were off his actually unleash a little bit and he can take shots and he can actually throw those debates and the some of the throws they would dial up within a quarterback not saying they're the same quarterback and I'm not saying that he's as good has been or anything of that nature. What I'm saying is that I hope those are the plays that typically go to Washington Washington's not a wide wide receiver screen guy. He's not that's just not hit. deontay Johnson's Guy's GonNa make someone miss get an extra three to four yards juju Smith Schuster the guy that's going to catch that pass stiff arm. Somebody breaks tackle and get maybe three four five six seven four yards. James Wash doesn't fall into that Cara category for in my opinion some. I'm hoping that this game plan opened things up a little bit more that might open up James Washington more in he's the guy that's probably going to have to beat that man coverage period. We know what the Ravens used to do to Mr third and fifth they would put three defenders on Juju. Smith Schuster is going to be blanketed. I'm sure deontay. Johnson's going to get some attention because he's got two touchdowns in the last two games. James Washington is going to be the x factor for me offense he better be because there's not many options back there and and they're they're they're definitely not guys that make you feel making glue sleepover you know. They're going to have to really scheme this up now. Let me ask you this. If advanced McDonald's healthy you like a running to tights with Nick Bennett and Vance McDonald Donald. I think those two could be really really good formation for the steelers down there. I mean I do you can pass protect. the issue in this game also on offense aside football. I think the DC for Baltimore's as Wink Martindale correctness is your love at name. I Love Them. They're like a TV host. The Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah so the nasty other thing that's going to make his game very difficulty is the familiarity of the Ravens have with the steelers and the Ravens give you a lot of different looks and it's going to be a cerebral game for Mason Rudolph as well but on the flip side the steelers are very familiar with wink what they do you know on defense and I still think the ravens like you said or trying to to really try to find themselves defense particularly with Earl Thomas being that guy back. They're not eric. Wetter Eric Wedge does a fantastic player. You know although although it didn't show on Sunday against Tampa Bay when I gave up I think fifty eight points whatever it was a against Tampa Bay but this is a tough spot for the for the young quarterback division opponent. Ravens a physical team runs to football I. It's going to be very interesting. You ask you Jeff. How would would you defend the steelers. I mean when I'm thinking about the steelers. I'm thinking I would play cover two I play cover two I play a lot of to men I. I don't think the wide receivers can get open and I'm GonNa play two safeties deep just in case and I think I can handle your running game was set. I'M NOT GONNA commit another guy in a box. I don't I think you can run it. So most of my coverage looks are GonNa have to high safeties. I'm GonNa just play a too high safety. Shell against you I don't think think you can run it any. I don't think you can beat me deep and get off man. That's what I do. I play a lot of two man against the steelers avenue just a single high safety and drop out extra player down the box because if what I've seen so far with Mason Rudolph that they're not gonNA throw the ball. Downfield anyways and so there you're GONNA try to run it or they're gonNA run. Short screens screens intermediate routes in which case I'm GONNA won an extra defender there to help and prevented from turning turning three or gain into a seven or eight yard gain so you kind of have Robert. You'd have a lurk so you had a safety lurking. You'd have one high safety and the safety is kind of planning to lurk lurk safety either side. A either safety is to lurk in case in which case on the flip side the offense coordinator. This is where you have to draw up this. You know you're going eleven personnel now a three wide receivers you have got to get used to win your one on one match ups because that safety that one high safety is going to pick a side so. Rudolph's GonNa have have to look off. He's going to have to deliver a good pass down the field. That's something rothlisberger is always good at this prime. I'm not so sure about this current quarterback in this current receiving crop but at the same time that's what did this way. You'd have to do speaking of Rothlisberger. What was that quote. The Tomlin said everybody said I did ask is Dale Elliott Decay. His sports who asked was having Been Rama's Burger on the sideline helpful and I think Tomlin's response was in terms of playmaking taking he did nothing a and been already looked like these gangs some weight too yeah. I told my wife watched that he's on that all carb diet now man. He's scarfing down scar gravy fries baby gravy for is from Raymond. He's a big fan of me and my love affair with Ben Roth's Baristas the reason why can't Jeff Love Big Ben like Lanza shaking my head at the dollar tip jar thanks Raymond. He knows it. I am Ben Rothlisberger Fan and he knows Atlanta's is not. That's why he said that so What's what's rains image? That was that image. I was trying to make it look like he was pumping gas but then take concert okay. I didn't know what it looked like a firearm looking pumping gas. I don't know what that what is that Ray I don't know what that is the fully ever tell us where where she went to eat at yes. She said she you got pizza somewhere but that was a long time ago. I can't call probably went to video. She probably went to Minneapolis. I don't know I don't know if that place is still open. Hope mini meals are still open every five dollars Kathy in in the Super Chad she says what do you think of Tomlin's comments. were getting on the sideline. which is what we're just referred to What do you think of Ben being on the sidelines Lance Tom. It was basically saying don't ask me about people that don't play that was kind of his nice is a gruff way of saying that at. Hey Ben is still in check so you might as well pay you for your brain helped. The quarterback helped a young guy out mentally still come to work being a meeting rooms and help this kid..

"He had a very serious injuries and has recovered to be heavily involved two touchdowns. He's going to be a touchdown dependent tied it. I think moving forward. Would you rather have we'll do Eric Hebron moving for oh. That's a great question. I think I would rather have we'll digitally. I think I'd go dizzy. They're they're very similar tiered players for me. Vance McDonald Donald Seven hundred thirty eight two touchdowns on seven targets. I guess it'll be like maybe maybe the last time you get a hit it who knows act yeah well. We'll see if mason leans on I was. That's what I was gonNA. Bring up. The touchdowns were from Mason Rudolph Maze. It seemed to be looking his way. I think he's a guy that it's really interesting going forward. That's not to say he's got a higher ceiling without Big Ben but I think that Vance is very very interesting. I'd be looking to hold them in. Whatever you do don't throw to Dante Moncrieff. It is selling bench. It's so all important as a person just for your own psyche not to throw the ball to him. I think that the transition has tap and know it'll it'll be James Wash not and moving forward not only that but keep in mind James Washington I mean James. Washington is a Mason Rudolph favourite. They what's the holidays together. If you look at the preseason from from yeah you're right. Mason Rudolph has dominated preseason or Excuse me James Washington has dominated preseason. That's right going never seen before Mike. You've talked about in years past and you've been correct that when the backup quarterback comes in oftentimes oftentimes it's more of the backup wide receiver that he's practicing with day in day out. I expect Mason James Washington to be decently relevant all right. I think Greg Olsen by the way don't forget about that Thursday night game six for one ten waiver show tomorrow we'll bring up some names and where he gets the Arizona. That's not fair. I'll say this I mean Arizona's defense. They were in that game just three to twenty three to seventeen ball game. They were put in this position where I was so frustrated because they couldn't contain Lamar Jackson ax and then I remembered its Lamar Jackson like they're not used to facing that but they had a pretty darn good game considering what we had seen Miami do the week before short my point was let Mark Andrews Gimme a break the tight end position hockey lease will sort of who who TJ Hopkinson Week one ball out against the cardinals Arnold's Mark Andrews bald out against Zuber annoying to watch Mark Andrews be opened for every I down all game long so you're right and so we'll see what happens next week with him in time to move on stinkers of the week presented by odor eaters. These guys stunk it up till check yeah seriously. You know it's easy easy to overreact get a week to a seems like the same amount of overreaction is happening. Some of these performances fantasy football football is very subjective game. You don't have control over so many factors whether it would be those illustrated by injury this week with major players going down and impacting those performances or just the ebbs and flows of the game the way Sammy Watkins was a beast last week couple bombs. Don't go his way this this week. Zandt makes Sammy Watkins worst player. No not really is just the way that goes and if you one of the things that we've put a lot of time and effort into that's part of being a member of joined the foot but is also in the UK is the consistency chart and Jason Works to build these things out each and every year where you can glance at one screen green NC each and every week performances and whether they finished in the top five or the top twelve or outside of that range. You're not going to find very many players. You're talking a handful at each position -sition that really provide consistency on a week to week basis. You're playing probability in your starting sits and you're gonNA have ebbs and flows and you need to kind of relax and realize that guys are going to have looking Christian McCaffrey. He's not any worse of a player this week than he was last week but the best illustration of consistency is a forty point week and is six point week from Christian McCaffrey as as a famous book. Brooks brought up once said what is the what's the phrase Brooks. Everybody poops. Everybody boos sometimes some tax rates. Every song hurts all right quarterback poopers. He's guys stunk it adopt. These are the stinkers of the week at the quarterback position we already saw Cam Newton but does Shawn Watson Sixteen for twenty nine. No passing touchdown kind of salvaged salvaged an absolute catastrophic week with a rushing touchdown one hundred and fifty nine passing yards. This Jacksonville is how good Pat Mahomes is because Jacksonville's a great defense like Jacksonville shut him down. This was not just that you know Dijon Watson and is in good or deandre. Hopkins isn't good. This was a tough match-up. We didn't WANNA believe. The Jacksonville was as good as they were because of what Pat Mahomes did to Jacksonville Week one. I think Jacksonville is a dominant defense that will still get torched by PAT homes. I I'll I think that they're a a really really good defense and but they have the ability to avalanche on themselves. I think that's what we saw. Last year to satistics at the end of the year they were a good defense vince last year but then they had these like handful of games where the the wheels fell off. They're yelling at each other their players getting thrown out yeah and so I think you know this was a good game for for them and they almost want it on the back of that defense so to Shawn Watson still running for his life. Laremy Tunsil has an ankle problem. He says he's fine but he has been not good enough but we're not scared like no now for why ham you gotta you gotTa move on right now. L. E. proves it to Shawn Watson. He's like a go trade for him. Off Of this performance Derek Carr did not show out twenty three for thirty eight one eight and one had to ugly picks and AH ugly count as two interceptions. What's wild is the raiders were winning this game ten zero and then in position a tube like put even more points on the board car was playing well. Yes to start the game and then everything just turn into a black hole and imploded on itself yeah the twenty eight th they have the black do have twenty eight points in the second quarter. Put them into a position that Derek Carr is entirely uncomfortable which is he can't come back. He just can't do do it. He cannot throw the ball downfield. This was a game where you know. I think that's the problem. That's the thing that's going to get Jon. GRUDEN pulling his hair out is it's it's underneath the renfro underneath to tyrel underneath the waller a lot and needs to feed him a bit more. what do you what do you think of the what happened with. Josh Jacobs where he was seeing a bunch of snaps to Jalen Richard is like you didn't get the full workhorse role that you we thought we had from Josh Jacobs after week. One I think he just has to do with the game script and putting Rashard out there on third down pass protection situation. I'm saying saying does that. Does that concern you about Josh Jacobs moving forward knowing that this this is what's going to happen. If the rates go down then Jacobs will be coming off the feel more and more twelve carries in this game still had ninety nine yards rushing the big like fifty. One Yard looked great on that Yeah I. I don't think it changes anything in a very pragmatic tangible way. There's nothing I'm GONNA do different. I'm not GONNA sit him because game scripts going to hurt the raiders from time to time they have Minnesota Indianapolis next both games on the road They're not facing mahomes again this week so I don't think that they played that as a team. I think they just got boat race in the second quarter and couldn't overcome overcoming even when it was twenty eight to ten they were down on the goal. I need through that ugly pick. It would have been a second touchdown for tyrel Williams in this game who seems very stable as the one in that offense show. Let's talk about my favorite stinker. Oh Gosh who's your favorite singer. My favorite speaker at quarterback was able to come up with US solid one hundred twenty money passing yards Mitchell trubisky. Oh talking about the game winning drive. You stink yes because he he did lead them on a game winning Dr. He did throw one pass. That was caught doing reasoning. This was a hard game to watch on both sides of the football. There's a reason he had to have a game winning so let's let's weigh in because we want to make one side of the fan base feel bad but I don't think they should have been granted that time out I don't I think that was a fair play on the with the one second. One Guy saw the end of that game. I think I don't think it was. I don't think he should have done. It seem like they time. It seemed like they ran out of time to me too but that to me if you're down one second and the you're calling timeout immediately. I don't know that it was really tight. Philip rivers kirk cousins also terrible games. Kirk cousins is not available right now not good not good for kirk cousins and Minnesota Yeah and rivers. you know Phil Burgers. Sometimes he performed sometimes he doesn't sometimes they lean on the running game sometimes. Heathrow's interceptions. He's a middling streaming option. Yes running back stinkers of the week. This one's unfortunate. Get your orders. Get Your House. Alvin Kamara thirteen for forty five has ever been in this list probably not I mean maybe once that thing. That's going to hurt a lot. Is I mean a lot. A lots going to hurt. I mean you know drew. brees change your whole offense but the reliance the chemistry on the receiving end for Alvin Kamara with drew brees. I'm I'm very concerned about this the only at three targets in this one reception it's gross we said throw. Tavis Marie Audi at five carries one catch not good but Alvin Kamara. What are you GonNa. Do you gonNA play Alvin Kamara. Yes he's too good Christian McCaffrey. You're GONNA play him. It doesn't matter if he stunk now Joe Mixing. He fought through an injury to get into this game pretty much put up a a stat line though he hadn't played. I mean eleven for seventeen three three for ten through the air. Geo just had six rushes. It was pretty gross overall. They have buffalo next week. That is not a good matchup for them on the road owed. You're still gonNA play him right. I mean I I was benching mixed unless we ask this week and this week he was coming off the ankle. You don't know how much he's actually going to be. I used that totally makes sense to bench him this week but next week another week removed from the ankle he is still the starting. You know workhorse running for this team. Presumably Ankle is completely. Find my then bad matchup. I wouldn't play real if I had options. I mean that's what it comes down to options options being like this. Let me let me illustrate if I'm sitting there going. Do I throw Mile Sanders out there in week three or do I David Montgomery out there and we three those are the kind of players you would have gotten laid eight that maybe you have the option of pitting of Brian of pudding mixing on the bench for it's a tough match up. I Dunno if the upside really there against buffalo if he practices law a week maybe that opinion changes but you know Mike. Would you be playing mixing over both of those players. I'd I side with you that I want to see joe mix and be a healthy and I want to see him be active in this offense as well it just they funny side tangent through two weeks. Andy Dalton is averaging nearly forty seven attempts a game if you if you want to continue that through the whole season though be seven hundred forty four attempts..

"Only guy I'm interested in from the passing attack would be Evan Ingram all right you had. OJ Howard Vance McDonald Old Eric Ibran Jack Doyle and Morality Cox. Oh Wow you're putting all three colts in there. Brian came down with touchdown but bobbled it jerk what made me look better but I think the one that we need to talk about right now you know. I'm less concerned about OJ Howard because he was targeted he had the fumble. You only have one more target than the guy. I imagine you're about to bring up Vance. Yep Yeah problems for Vance McDonald and here's the problem not that. I don't think he can't be productive for the rest of the year because you can. My problem is that now. What do you do because you have these? TJ Hodkinson Mark Andrews bribed other options that you might have drafted in Vance range now. What do you do next week fantastic. Seattle so where are YOU WITH MCDONALD. I mean just four targets in the game. Though the the lack of volume was incredibly surprising especially when you consider the volume they were giving to other players was now working. Why didn't you try to go to Vance McDonald a little bit earlier. I'm optimistic they will I am to that but the point you bring up of Hopkinson Mark Andrews Delaney Walkers probably out there on some waiver wires yes as well. It's really hard not to pivot to one of those guys who seem like they're more sure bet for higher volume but I- Vance McDonald Mark Andrews in my dining silly Mark Andrews on my bench this week he was keeping Sean Jackson Company while I proceeded to lose on Lake and like I said though Moncrieff we've had ten targets I it's it's hard to imagine the steelers go back and they watched what went wrong with this game and then don't get Vance McDonald Donald a little bit more involved. Yeah I mean you could put basically every steeler on the list. Oh my gosh breaking news is exactly why on Sunday morning thought about dropping eater Adrian Peterson Darius guys had an MRI hi this morning on the other non ACL Ni. He's going to miss time. The hope is that he doesn't need surgery but the team is doing a full evaluation. He gained eighteen in yards on ten carries did not look like himself. I just brought that up economic explosive. He is now going to Adrian Peterson rules again this poor or can you believe this the poor kid. I was so close to dropping Peterson because I was going to pick up somebody like John Brown on the morning earning. Just that's a that's a tip by the way if you are in a position where you can move a guy to your on Sunday morning and pick somebody else up as a flyer the two guys guys looking at this week John Brown James crowder both would have been great pre waiver pickups for free without Fab dollars kept. AP Dairies guys unbelievable on be Leibel Mauri Action on that tomorrow when we get more information. I think that's it for today. Show those were the stinkers of the week. What a stink to finish it it to the stinkers of the week presented by odor eaters odor eaters is the best in odor defense. Let's say you need to eat the odor of this week. Yes and on the outer eaters needs to do it but as a fantasy football owner in week one you need to you need to do something something to kind of. Take away the sting of anticipation disappointment because it is a long season. Go get go get a nice massage. Get A pedicure. LOOK LOOK PUT A. Dod Rising Odor Eaters into that shoe that is west assuage yourself. Is that a word. I don't know if it is it is now..

"Corner so if your new england how do you force pittsburgh to try and beat you y- you nailed it spot on right because when you look at this. I think this can tell us a lot. What about pittsburgh's offense right. We're gonna find out if there's this massive drop off. I think it's not just about the antonio brown loss luger offensive line coach mike mon- check he makes thanks a sideways move to a lesser organization in that message kind of scares me a little bit so let's hope there's no drop off in a line play for pittsburgh. That could really really hurt things. I like vance mcdonald the lot i think he's going to have an increased role in the steelers offense. It's important. I think you know guys is like ham and james washington. Take that next step. It seems like through the preseason they prefer to wide receivers with moncrieff in juju advance <unk> at the tight end position on the field and then potentially james washington as the fourth option but you kind of alluded this like these smart sophisticated teams seems like the patriots. There's going to remove him from the game completely and so it'll be tough to see. I think the patriots defense is going to be really improved. It's the deepest i've i've seen this side of the ball in ages and i think there's like this fear from the national media. You know you'll lose trae flowers to me. You know they're scheme is what dictates the pressure show and new england was eleven pressure rate last season. You bring in michael bennett. You draft chase win bitch. Jamie collins returns. I just i. I don't think there's going to be this massive. Drop off there. I think there's going to be real improvement for pittsburgh. We saw what o._c. Randy fisher did last year loves big big ben. Obviously they're buddies. Ban probably was able to dictate too much at times. The steelers increased their pass rate by percent year over year but to me. There's a game where we rely on james connor. Both rushing receiving new england was twenty six than rushing success rate last season. It came against the eighth easiest schedule of run offenses so get those guys going in the ground game. I think when you dive a little bit deeper pass receptions in yards and you look at targets output in in receiving success rate. There's a metric called tours. New england was actually twenty fifth. Defending tight ends in dead last defending running back passes so again vance mcdonald donald new show up here in connor in the other backs need to do some damage in pasquin. Metric sounds made up to me. I'm going to have to google that. When we get off the show. A lot of people come at ask go way where some of these proprietary numbers that pain comes up with normally i believe at that one i'm going to have to question a math tacoma into sunday football definitely worth the watch zhiyi as you alluded to mentioning both these teams will not only for division titles but to try and represent the a._f._c. down in your neck of the woods in early february so we'll see how the campaign kicks off often earnest but from sunday games to the season opener a later this evening if you're listening on thursday if not too bad the game already been played between the packers and the chicago bears the bears are three point favorite you do have to lay a little bit of juice year some three and a half starting to pop depending on where you look over under widely available forty thirty six to forty six and a half and we look at the packers recent run of success soldier field has really been the house that aaron rodgers and company have built now i know they lost their in december but the green bay sixteen and five against the spread and straight up over the last twenty seasons when playing in chicago it does include one playoff game as well favored in this matchup has is really dominated pain going twelve and five.

"Of. Them is injury history but they have sat and they have waited. We have seen we have already seen vance mcdonald takeover game for the pittsburgh steelers in the highest possible time a playoff game against jacksonville two years ago sixteen targets ten receptions one hundred twelve yards seat and it's just one game. I get it but my point is. We've seen him takeover a game heath miller when when big ben actually had a pass catching tight end it was heath miller. This was a while ago he regularly saw oh excellent target shares including jason funding of the year you brought up when all three of them had over one hundred targets antonio brown mike wallace and heath miller. You realize jesse jesse. James started last year with the week one. He was the number eight tied in week. Two is the number to tighten. Yes look because big. Ben utilizes the tight end position and now that position belongs to vance mcdonald over the last two years. Only travis kelsey has more broken tackles at the position travis. Kelsey is a fulltime tight end vance mcdonald. Donald has not been over the last two years. Only george cadle has a better yards after catch last year twelve most receptions at the tight end eleventh most yards <music> at tight end position. He was the tight end ten in half point p p r scoring as a part time player. What do i mean andy by a part time player. He averaged fifty five percent of the snap. It didn't look like not enough right. Taiba tied in ten with fifty five by percents of the snaps. He's not playing no fifty five percent of pittsburgh snaps at the position this year. Can you stay healthy. I maybe whatever i heard that's the fifteen percent sure off the eighty five if he's playing he's going to break out is going to happen all right eighty five percent. That's our highest thus far. I'm i'm at about eighty percent on my pick so i think vance wins the day in terms of certainty factor and eh curtis samuel. You've heard a lot about samuel. It all comes down to one thing for curtis samuel this season which is to stay healthy healthy. He's twenty three years old. He's poised to make the leap. He's the talk of camp. He's an athletic freak that had transitioned from being kind of a running back hybrid guy into the wide receiver position but he missed ten games through the first two seasons due to injury so his health is the key to him actually paying off for you but but right now what i love about curtis samuel impart for the fantasy side is you gotta pay two more rounds to get d._j. More and i think much like you know. We've talked a little bit about golladay a._m. Marvin jones and like the the round gap is so significant between the two that there's going to be jones weeks and i don't just like d._j. More at all i think d._j. Moore has a great ceiling in the offense as well but you have you ever healthy cam newton and his main target is going to be d._j. More and curtis samuel on this offense along with christian mccaffrey obviously so you look at where does courtesy mule win on the football field this apart from the preseason hi this is apart from him being and arguably the best player in camp. He wins at every single level in every single route. If you look at reception perception seventy four point six percent success rate against man coverage..

"Congratulations. I told you guys manscaping was a big one. Another one is if you become a patron of r._t. Media which is the company that produces all the shows ross tucker football podcast even money fantasy feast college draft become a patron and say hey what i want more than anything to get into the fancy feast redraft league. Let me know but today's winner kyle glazer. Not only bri did he. He take advantage of the man scapegoat. This guy went to a troubling troubling level in which he said that unless this totally creeps me out and does he will man scape r._t. R._t. into his yeah that's what it will do so i kinda weird but but i wanted people that were willing to go the extra mile so i will give him credit for that and he will be the winner this week. Maybe a._b._c.'s loser momentarily when he actually does that but he's the winner. Do me a favor kyle. Don't send me a picture. I don't need a picture picture of that. No thank you what i do want before we talked to liz. I want you guys to know that i agree a huge fan of penn state huge fan of the eagles growing up. I know what what it's like to be a die hard fan. I know what it's like to want to yell at the tv and not talk to anyone for the rest today but good news. There's a show from one dri called sports wars that tells the stories of some of the greatest sports rivalries he's of all time brett farve versus aaron rodgers raphael and the doll versus roger federer shack jack versus kobe. The new season is all about college football rivalries oklahoma versus texas georgia florida. Even if you didn't go to either one of these schools you're gonna love hearing how intense these rival resort. You're not gonna wanna miss. These stories stay tuned at the end of today's episode so fancy feast podcast to hear a clip from sports wars. You're going to really enjoy the end of the day's episode you are going to. Here's a clip from sports wars right now. Let's get to liz so this is really cool because i've been i wouldn't say it's fair to say. I've been trying thing to get a liaison for years but i've been having liz on my list at least to get on for years knowing. I wanted to get her on the show. You can absolutely and you should check her out on twitter. It's spelled allies e. l. a. underscore f f she does a fantastic. I mean fantastic job for yahu. She has a story that just came out that we're gonna dive into. It's all upside fantasy football team which i love because liz. Let's be honest. That's how you win like you guys with upside to cash in for you. If you're in a competitive league that's the difference hitting those upside i players but also keeping balance and while while constructing a roster in mind could you can't you can't draft the sean jackson in every around right or you're gonna get banged so you have to kind of think about who are floor players that will mesh well with your ceiling targets but ceiling targets are so much more fun because i think i mean i know ross. You're like a dad and a husband so in life. Maybe we have to be responsible but in fantasy the ball a little bit of fun and go all upside right and i just have to say you went to princeton right dude yeah yeah yeah so i went to brown. Oh does it. I hope it. Does it bother you that you couldn't get in to like a really good. Ivy schools the only only if it bothers you because you spent all that time eating clubs in princeton while we were actually so wait a minute liz auger no first of all. Did you play a sport or something and i was actually a competitive figure skater all through like elementary school junior high in high school well <hes> i didn't go to university of delaware. Which is the school. That has the best like figure skating program. I also played volleyball but i'm five two as most most people now have tiny person and so i wasn't a particularly good center so college. Volleyball wasn't really set up for me. No pun intended or so i do that was awesome so i i my point of asking that was did you get into brown based solely on your academic merit. I would say yes s. Recruited athlete i did not i did not apply as an athlete now holy cow so just let the record show that that means liz is definitely a thousand percent smarter than i am because there is no chance that i would have gotten into the prince and are any of the ivy leagues without football so that tells you that liz is very very bright among her other wonderful qualities. That's awesome liz. Gimme gimme the background give your listener is the backer and that's the most important thing we'll get into the fantasy stuff but i always liked to personalise my guest. I are so i so i know you went to brown but go before that. Where'd you grow up. How'd you get into fantasy football and how'd you get the gig allen. I'll make it quick. I a group in chicago. My mom was a single mom. <hes> since the time i was thirteen months. I'm the only kid so is the her and i but she was out trying to make a living so my grandfather who who was the embodiment of the carl sandburg poem if anyone knows carl sandberg <unk> bit of a reference but clearly i'd like to read as as we've already discuss because the browns step but like world war two vet grizzled guy that worked on the railroads he was kind of my primary caregiver because my mom was busy so he was the guy hi who was you know taking me to to girl scouts into figure skating and to any of the camps and stuff that i was in and so i ended up learning all the stuff that if were speaking in gender normative terms like boy would learn and <hes> supports became a huge giant chicago sports fan and he unfortunately fortunately when i went away really wanted me to go to north western so that i would stay close. He was really really like to stay close baby state and i was like no i wanna go out east. I want to discover cover. What all of this is about. I can't say not brown so i went out and he unfortunately passed away the first semester of freshman year and i came home minutes away to grieve. I just started watching. I turned on the t._v. In the bears were playing the vikings and the bears lost because that's kind of how they do injured originally and and <hes> i then as a way degrees started watching every single football game not just the bears games and that became a tradition for me best word a couple of years. I'm dating this this guy. He's in this thing called the fantasy football league. He says to me sheepishly. One sunday morning and i was broke like i was straight out of college had no money was waiting tables trying to figure out my life and he had something called the red zone channel and he said do you mind if we watched this all day on sunday and like kind of hang out on the sofa uh and i was like are you kidding me. Are we ordering wings or chinese. Like what are we doing here. That's awesome. Let's totally watch football all day so i ended up like kind of secretly managing co managing his fantasy football team to a victory to a super bowl victory next year i wanted my own team didn't wanna share don't like to share so i okay <hes>. There happened to be a spot in the league. I took it. I won the super bowl that year. When the super bowl the next year then one day i was watching fantasy football live on which i am now a cast member which blows my mind and thought why why are there no women in the space. I could do this i should do. I enjoy this so. I started a blog called. The fantasy football girl dot com created a real life contact content schedule be logs put myself made it a job like made it a third job and then also started a podcast started a twitter feed and just hit like just was grinding on it and really trying to learn from others and engage with others and i did that for about four years before scout notice to me signed me to <hes> a season-long deal and then yahu paid attention in poached me away from scout out and niamh now entering my fifth season with yahoo fantasy liz. That's amazing first of all. Both your mom and your grandpa sound awesome absolutely awesome. I'm just picturing your grandpa taking you you know to girl scouts and all all that stuff and god bless him man that is that's a that's a man's man right there so that that is awesome that that really really touched me and then as for everything else that is really interesting and cool. I guess my question was when you went to brown and then you graduated. What did you think you were going to do. What did you major in you guys. Don't even have major no majors no grades yeah. We have concentrations ross kirk. I am so i will admit my first semester not just because of my grandfather's passing but just in general like i was a basic tom girl from the midwest to showed up wearing birkenstocks like i knew nothing about rich kids about east coast. Life brown was very difficult for me to culturally adjust to but i really wanted to study a whole bunch of stuff so the front my freshman year i just kind of took everything from art history to the history of the vietnam war to theater classes and dabbled and then i ended up deciding to major in theater and linguistics six my mom was not going to allow me to go to college just meter theater so she was like baby you pick something else and i speak spanish so i majored in linguistics and when i graduated i came out to l. a. wanting to have a career in entertainment and was waiting tables and trying to be an actress at the same time booked a couple of shows and was working eventually actually as an actress but it just wasn't you know i had my health insurance. I if you go on i._m._d._b. I booked plenty of things but it just wasn't fulfilling and i wanted to own something creatively blamed myself and that became the fantasy football blog. You are awesome heard about you from other people but you are. You're like legitimately awesome. This is so cool i'm loving. You're a go getter on so many different levels absolutely awesome. I'm fired up even even more than i already was. This is fantastic. What did you graduate from brown by the way and i graduated in a we'll talk about it off line but you graduated ahead of got it got it. We're keeping your age a secret. I guess getting mid thirties okay. I'm well. I i just turned forty so yes. I am ahead of you so we did probably did not overlap so that everything about that is awesome. I want to dive into into your all upside team because i think it's a great article two right before we dive into that though speaking of yahoo you leaders. Did you know that they have officially released their week. One daily fantasy football contests that's right. They have a one million dollar contest for week one. You're probably we not eligible for this list salary but no management fee a hundred k. two first place meaning more money goes back to you the players if you love liz you will love yahoo dot com slash daily fantasy. If you're just getting started with daily fantasy football joined the free to enter yahoo cup up and play all season long one hundred fifty k. in weekly and seasonal prizes and if you get a perfect lineup you win a million dollars by the way the perfect commercial perfect read yahoo dot com slash daily tennessee to tell you while we're about to have liz talk about her all upside website team because that tell you winning d._f._s. With upside people that pay off so let's get into it liz your quarterback jameis winston and i think that one most people can kind of understand right you know bruce arians no risk it no biscuit like that that one makes accents to me. I think you're running. Backs are interesting leonard for net as well as dion lewis. I will definitely was not expecting dion lewis as is an offside with all the derrick henry talk so let's dive in your running backs for net and lewis and and i know i read your story but sell the listeners and they should read you just story by the way as well just check out liz. I told you on twitter twitter handle. She posted up there. You can find it but i want to get a little bit from you liz as to why for orna lewis as your high upside dudes so part of the conceit of this article right is that the upside is relative to a player's a._d._p. Inability ability to return on investment right so when you're looking at leonard fournette and you're looking at and i get it. I get the burnt complaints. I owned him last year to write like you've got character concern concern. You've got your ability concerns. He's attached to a bluff offense in theory. Although i i am optimistic about flip coming in and maybe energizing a lot of what happened what could happen happen this year but for nets range of possible outcomes is an rb one. It has been every year since his rookie year. Which is why he's continually disappointed in. Why everyone everyone is so upset so when i look at his situation what competition does yeah we really are. We worried about a livelihood. I don't think so right like there's no t._j. Yeldan elden. There's no carlos hyde. Those guys were allowed to walk in free agency. Now they've added alfred blue. L. for blue is averaged under four point -o yards for carrying four of his last five seasons and then they used a fifth round pick on this while armstead guy who's already had a couple of dings to in terms of his durability so we know he's going to be a workhorse of course good luck finding one of those in the n._f._l. Something someone who's not working in a platoon you've got him. There and i also think when you look at this defense that jag that the jaguars have he last year they disappointed yeah. We knew they were gonna request. Regress probably not as much as they did twenty eighteen but i think they're gonna bounce back. They've made some improvement and and so this figures to be pretty conservative offense that wants to establish the run shout out to evans silva right whether or not you want whether or not that's exciting in the modern day the n._f._l. This team seems very much built around making leonard fournette work and i think when you look at those range of possible outcomes and we know he is one of the most powerful one healthy running backs available in the league when at his current a._d._p. Shoot don't tell me this guy can't produce rb two numbers. I'm in mm-hmm yeah i would say. Is this his third year fourth year at any rate. I'm trying to look it up but at any rate i think he he realizes that if he ever want to get a second contract that one way or the other the time is now so i'm kind of with you on for net for all all the reasons just mentioned i called their game on thursday night against the eagles and it's only four nets third year but he he's eligible for a contract extension after this year if he has a big one so i like the logic there for sure especially on the backups and or lack thereof and i and i love his motivation as well. What about <hes> dion lewis. That's not a name. I've heard a lot that one kind of surprised me now so so the dion lewis logic is obviously i mean i'd be lying if i said it wasn't tied to derrick henry availability this season yes derrick henry came on on week fourteen just in time to win a bunch of people fantasy championships but his usage was suspect will dion lewis lewis was used much more frequently early on in the season and and i think people have forgotten about his ability to both run inside inbetween tackles and also catch passes right. We're only thinking of him as a pass catching back but i think in p._r. Friendly formats that also buoy him because when marcus mariota he may not even end up the starter right reading some reports what's on wrote a world that seemed murky about whether he tannahill are like duffer sure start sure it's probably marcus mariota but could there be a changing of the guard. Would anyone be surprised by that. No part of that is because marcus mariota can stay healthy. His mechanics are met also ryan. Tannehill likes to check down that is good for dion lewis and when you look at the online online retailer luan urine special is right <hes> with taylor the one out for the first month. I'm guessing that arthur smith is going to tell his fragile q._b. To check down a whole bunch is get that ball out that also is a place where dion lewis can excel so again part of this is due to his eighty p._m. He's going in the thirteenth round. What else are you doing in the thirteenth route especially noting a._j. Brown we. We're not sure he's a rookie. We're also not sure about his availability. Delaney walker is still is one hundred percent percent right now. You've got adam humphreys which admittedly competes in terms of yardage with <hes> expected yardage with dion lewis but i think at the running think back position in the thirteenth round you wanna throw a dart lewis could definitely produce rb three minimal numbers thought it was was funny by the way liz it's because he's suspended for the first four games. The titans played he didn't start the game but then he played like the whole first half taylor lewan in the preseason opener against the eagles which i thought was a little bit weird because all these teams are has indicated there guys hurt but like like you'll have your best off into lyman play because he's suspended for the first four weeks like what if you tears and achilles earn s._e._a._l. This thought i get it but i thought that was is interesting but absolutely their offense of lying is in is it nearly as good with him out and then by the way what if they suffer an injury at tackle one one of the first four games then that's when things really get bad when you get multiple injuries or in this case it suspension at the same position most teams. The next dude in is usually pretty good. That's kind of who i was usually like not the guy you want starting but he's not gonna lose the game for the guy after that. That guy can lose the game for you and that guy can be a major major problem so i like. I like your logic there. Let's get to your receivers this dante moncrieff who i can absolutely understand and marquez valdez gambling which is interesting. Is there enough there for marquez. Vow skittling to eat opposite devante items liz that is an excellent point and that is the biggest question because it's very it could be very much that the packers three main players are aaron rodgers aaron jones if he stays healthy and davante adams so what's left i. I'm not sure but i do know that n._b._s. Is probably the most athletic of these receivers. He's going to have some big some big game. If you're playing basketball go ahead and roll out what boggles my mind and why i wanted to include them in this article all is the g._m._o. Is being drafted ahead of him that to me is such simplistic plug and play rational jimoh. Who is the only reason he's going to be. The the big slack is because he's not explosive. He can't make separation and up on the outside to take the number two spot m._v._s. find you a man who can do both right right like he can definitely work outside and in he did that last year. He and rogers have been working on their timing. When aaron rodgers starts talking up a player and we're looking in a post taylor done article life lifespan here i am paying attention and so i m b s has huge breakout potential and again. He's so damn cheap like why are you not reach your you. Don't even have to read from you will fall in your lap and the upside is there. He earned his quarterback troy. She's been prioritized by the coaching staff and also just for stats. If people like these he caught twenty three of twenty eight catchable targets be at the slot and also brought down fourteen of seventeen balls when working on the outside so his versatility is great drama. Allison has not been particularly durable or dependable so i think you could see an expanded role especially with randall cobb no longer part of that offense and those targets being fed at least partially to n._b._s. Find somebody that calls the packers wide receivers m._v._s._a. and g._m. That's my that's my advice for everybody out there about dante moncrieff with the steelers. I mean i have been on this. Take since april so it's catching got part of the reason i included it was because i am doing a little bit of that fantasy football writer. This was my flag. I sort of thing so i just look at people are like liking james washington now right because of his first preseason action where he hooked up with rudolf his former quarterback and i think he had a nice is forty four plus yard bomb from josh dobbs and like the first opening moments of the of last week's preseason action but i just feel like moncrieff on krief is a red zone weapon and this team is going to need to score some damn touchdowns <unk> big. Ben is going to need <unk>. Okay we could talk about vance mcdonald. Donald every damn year advanced mcdonald's supposed year. I liked dante mockery. He is a big body. He caught seven touchdowns with andrew luck. Two years ago in luck was healthy. I like the he has a nice quarterback. Big bend like the big ben's been talking him up and he's probably not going to have a ton of targets every week right. This isn't the guy that your high high volume guy. This is your high value target guy because a lot of those are going to be in the end zone tight end time liz and this this guy <hes> there's a lot of height mark andrews tight end for the baltimore ravens a lot of hype for a guy by the way that was a fourth round pick the same aim years they had a first round pick tight in but man i read the baltimore writers and they're saying he was by far the best player in camp so far which was interesting. I remember him in the u._s. Army bill. I called that game for n._b._c. and he was excellent. People are all into mark andrews has it caught brought up to his a._d._p. Yet lewis and starting to i don't like it. It is starting to the buzz will because of what you said right. It's not just that beat writers. There's are are saying that he's the most explosive playmaker encamp they've been saying that throughout spring and summer practices that's the drumbeat that people talk about it is becoming deafening happening. The buzz is mounting. This is also a converted wide receiver right <hes> a high percentile spark athlete and he was used. I used in college to bail out his q._b. Numerous times so i like what he's doing last year. He flashed radiate a let's see two grabs over sixty yards last year which is incredible for a rookie and i look at this receiving corps and there's a lot of potential miles boykin who i like to call kenny golladay two point oh <hes> he has potential marquees brown could do something if he get on the field otherwise though if i'm looking at the players who could bail out a explosive admittedly but quarterback who struggles with accuracy. I think a big bodied athletic tight end is exactly kalihi what lamar jackson needs and that's why you're seeing all these reports about the growing chemistry so i have him projected for fifty three grabs six hundred seventy eight yards and five touchdowns when you look at those double digit rounds where he is still available especially at a position.

"Miller was my sleeper pick from a about a week and a half ago had put that in and this injury took him out. I've replaced raced him because they don't want to draft a guy. That's going to get off to a slow start. I still think keep your eye on them. Pick them up off of waivers when when he's healthy and back out there is definitely a talented aalto receiver all right. There was some news yesterday about the vance dan's vance mcdonald. They asked the offensive coordinator of pittsburgh weather whether he would see increased playing time in two thousand nineteen. He says he won't he's never gonna play the full game. That's never gonna happen. Mike put his pants on so quick. Look i've recovered okay so in initially when i came out especially coming from the mouth of oh that that was that was made yesterday and the o._c. and i it was a kick right to the numbers after i picked myself up off the floor. The tummy me ache subsided like yes he. He doesn't have to play the full game. Most tight ends aren't george kit old travis kelsey zakar records playing ninety percents of the snaps. You look at like evan ingram over that second half of the year where ingram was a great fantasy tight end. He's playing seventy percent sending the snaps and i still believe that vance mcdonald can get up to that. Maybe he doesn't have reported ninety percent. Play the full game but it just it. Would it would be absolutely baffling if vance mcdonald isn't playing up around the seventy percent of snap. I mean you just look at the depth chart and say okay if he's not your grumble who not inimical right so. I don't think they've got a choice and you need to pass catchers. They'll play too tight ends. I mean grumble will be out. There will be in line guy like jesse. James and i don't think this is a story. The story for vance mcdonald is not oh. I really hope he gets all the snaps for the team. The story prevents me. Donald is there's this giant gaping aping hall of targets with antonio brown leaving the team and snaps at the tight end position <hes> <hes> sure but i mean even if even if you say hey he's going to be on the field. Grumble will be in line blocker. Her just like jesse james snap wise. I'm more interested in the fact. That big been cares about throwing the ball to vance mcdonald is not so much you know any of the oh oh he's not going to get an extra snap. I doubt that this offense coordinator is going to be going well. That's you did that. Many snaps bright and you're on the field last year was as healthiest year so your point is well taken andy. If he just plays the same amount of snaps that he did last year. He'll still get more targets because antonio brown is not out there playing playing those same sniff fifteen touchdowns what antonio brown had last year yes sir so he'll have zero for them this year bold t. so red zone opportunity soon as you do you take a tight and give them three more touchdowns on the snap count that vance had last year. I still think there's reasons for optimism. Yes i've recovered and i'm still there. I have not adjusted vance mcdonald. Donald about the dance would have gotten out of control if if interest we're never did the bruce arians with godwin and said he will never leave the field ooh man that would be inappropriate yeah. This was interesting to me. Jay glazer reporting on watching cooper cockpit. Practice says he timed better in every athletic tasks post a._c._l..

"Of. Them is injury history but they have sat and they have waited. We have seen we have already seen vance mcdonald takeover game for the pittsburgh steelers in the highest possible time a playoff game against jacksonville two years ago sixteen targets ten receptions one hundred twelve yards seat and it's just one game. I get it but my point is. We've seen him takeover a game heath miller when when big ben actually had a pass catching tight end it was heath miller. This was a while ago he regularly saw excellent target shares including jason funding of the year you brought up when all three of them had over one hundred targets antonio brown mike wallace and heath miller. You realize jesse jesse. James started last year with the week one. He was the number eight tied in week. Two is the number to tighten. Yes look because big. Ben utilizes the tight end position and now that position belongs to vance mcdonald over the last two years. Only travis kelsey has more broken tackles at the position travis. Kelsey is a fulltime tight end vance mcdonald. Donald has not been over the last two years. Only george cadle has a better yards after catch last year twelve most receptions at the tight end eleventh most yards <music> at tight end position. He was the tight end ten in half point p p r scoring as a part time player. What do i mean andy by a part time player. He averaged fifty five percent of the snap. It didn't look like not enough right. Taiba tied in ten with fifty five by percents of the snaps. He's not playing no fifty five percent of pittsburgh snaps at the position this year. Can you stay healthy. I maybe whatever i heard that's the fifteen percent sure off the eighty five if he's playing he's going to break out is going to happen all right eighty five percent. That's our highest thus far. I'm i'm at about eighty percent on my pick so i think vance wins the day in terms of certainty factor and eh curtis samuel. You've heard a lot about samuel. It all comes down to one thing for curtis samuel this season which is to stay healthy healthy. He's twenty three years old. He's poised to make the leap. He's the talk of camp. He's an athletic freak that had transitioned from being kind of a running back hybrid guy into the wide receiver position but he missed ten games through the first two seasons due to injury so his health is the key to him actually paying off for you but but right now what i love about curtis samuel impart for the fantasy side is you gotta pay two more rounds to get d._j. More and i think much like you know. We've talked a little bit about golladay a._m. Marvin jones and like the the round gap is so significant between the two that there's going to be jones weeks and i don't just like d._j. More at all i think d._j. Moore has a great ceiling in the offense as well but you have you ever healthy cam newton and his main target is going to be d._j. More and curtis samuel on this offense along with christian mccaffrey obviously so you look at where does courtesy mule win on the football field this apart from the preseason hi this is apart from him being and arguably the best player in camp. He wins at every single level in every single route. If you look at reception perception seventy four point six percent success rate against man coverage..

"vance mcdonald donald" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain

"Let's go to question e._s._p._n. Sucks that's what i want. Sir let me let me let me rephrase that in at all mainstream media sucks i can't think of. I don't think the i don't like the n._f._l. Network either that much <hes> f s this one nope <hes> for me. I don't watch too much of that stuff anymore to put it bluntly. <unk> jeremiah wants to know. Do you think that this dealers hand can the operative word is can not will can they win the super bowl this year. Absolutely i mean i think they can <hes> will is a different story but yes i think they're talented enough on both sides of the bottle when a super bowl i do i agree. I think that they are capable of winning a super bowl this year like you said you're not predicting that they will but you're saying that they are capable. I think there definitely are capable you. Don't you don't why jeff because quote quote bid is motivated did he. He's enjoying football joining football again eureka eureka and it while he should be happy because he has his team back jack. Who's going to challenge them now. No one exactly they're all little minions. I call it a little bit lineup binion's. It'd be there little binion's a t shirt you get a picture of like grew with the number seven jersey in the hey. Hey hey if you if i see that t shirt out there you took it from us like this you better you better give shirts or somehow incorporate us in the ah yes great grass great jeff being yes bid grew grew with the number seven jersey on and the denizens who i've never seen we'll have number eleven. Dan will have all these number bird one of them with a headset on time. I'm all right so let's go to snowman. He's put five dollars in the tip jar via the super chat which by the way i'll go mentioned this. The super chat features the way that you can give some money to the program and where you see. Where's this chat publicly b._t. As he's jewish radio to the right there's a small dollar sign you click that dollars. You can donate any amount of money to the show. We appreciate anything that you're willing to give but on top of that understand that it'll highlight your question and we'll guaranteed answers. A lot of people ask questions. We can't get all them but we will get yours. If you use that feature. You don't have have to use it but you can in his questions. Will the steelers go after a tight end before the start of the regular season lands. I believe so. I think it's imperative that they do do. I don't think anybody in steeler nation is is comfortable with <hes> savior grumble being the backup tight here they. I think it's imperative that they do because you know when you look at their offense if you look at the snap counts from formation perspective they run a lot too tight end stuff. I mean i think that's their second. Most popular formation behind eleven personnel which is three receivers wore running back for three hours. He was one tied in but you need a you need to be able to have two tight end. Sets you need to be able to make defenses play heavy and you attack them in the passing game by being able to get your tight ends matched up one on one against linebackers. That's a popular popular way. That teams are attacking guys. Offensively inish dealers need that secondary tight end threat. I mean i mean nobody really liked that. Guided added went to the lion's. Amine solid player <hes> but they need a secondary tied anger. I agree in vance mcdonald. Donald had a pretty decent year last year in terms of health but his m._o. Up until last season was that he is an injury prone player in that scary that is really scary <hes> <hes> because i think he can be in mismatched nightmare..
