"We know what they said in Seattle. He won with the defense and the legion of boom and the running game, and the reason he's going to Denver is to prove if we can win because of him. And that is all of a sudden going to have them having the best off season. We don't even know what kind of player we're going to get in Seattle and all the chips are pushed on the table for Russell wood. So I just think that dichotomy to me is really, really interesting. One in 32 both involved Russell Wilson. They didn't feel the jump back in quickly, not to be negative all the time. How about number one, like the bucks aren't number one, but yet they went from Kyle Trask going to be their quarterback that Tom Brady is back. I don't know how that doesn't automatically put you back in the top of the list. Like, you decided to play. Number one, we got big time breaking your roster, generally a good thing. Hey, we do have time for one more thing here on NFL live. And the story of the simply will not stop. How about this? Mike Trout, who was called perhaps the worst commissioner in fantasy football history by Tommy Pham earlier today, he declined to comment on whether jock Peterson violated the rules of the fantasy league, he said he is unsure if he'll resign his commissioner for this coming season, quote every commission I know good cruelty. He said, Jeff, Mike tried is getting dragged unjustly. Yeah, it's not fair to Mike tread. I mean, we know the commission of the war room league is Seth workman. He absolutely has done a worse job than Mike Trout. There's no doubt in my mind about that. There are other commissioners that have done a horrible job too. Mike Trout is the innocent victim here, leave him alone. He's doing what he can to make sure that that league flourishes. We're Big Mike Trout fans. Come on. I can't figure out how the best baseball player in the world is also the commissioner of the fantasy league. NFL live is back tomorrow.

"Have been brutal for two games. It's not super fantasy friendly though because it's not very explosive. It's a lot of running a short path. that's the only thing but yes it is offense. They're they're they're. They're the equivalent of my my haircut when the best they can with what little they have to work. While i would love to see i mean i love it for lions. Fan says won't happen for a long time it or maybe it'll happen just in detroit two j. hopkinson in a friendlier fantasy offense would put up. Wild numbers like massive numbers. Absolutely incredible have different offense. He has a very player last thing early quickly matthew quinta. Cfs buyer cell. He had four catches last night. Sixty three yards and a touchdown back to back games with the score. But you really investing something into quincy his. I think he should make your way for our column. Did he really. He did not know seven targets in two straight games. It's a team that's gonna throw right. We agree on that. We're going to throw and we talked about the fact that none of these wide receivers have really emerged. Feels like he sort of had. Now when tyra williams comes back does he continue to get that but listen you like in a put it. This way. he'll be picked up in the war room league this week this week. Maybe maybe he's the number one at the moment. He's the number one wide receiver on offense. He scored back to back weeks. I think he's talented joke. We joked about this in the preseason right but there was a there was a can't. There's a training camp photo. Got a lot of buzz. Went viral on social media which was very much like the odell beckham catch basically a a high in the air. One handed kind of impossible. I don't know. I don't want you yourself you you don't need to. You need to reenact it. You do it right. You reenact it exactly like that exactly. Yeah i was worried about your old man. I appreciate that anyway. My point is but the athletic skill it takes to make a catch like that tells you something. Yeah i know. I know but i'm talking myself into a little bit okay. That's fine. I'm gonna give it with more week before i buy into it. One more saying for he's not somebody that i would pick up ten team leagues not when somebody like. Emmanuel sanders is out there in eighty percent of leagues. Like right there that are better options out there in a standard ten or twelve team league. But if you're in a deeper league for he'll be a popular pin scott fishbowl. This week resembled a deeper league. I'm just saying touchdowns in back to back week. Seven targets and back to back weeks. I do not i do. I do think that he has some legit talent. And i do think this is an offense. It's going to need to throw a lot more often than they want to evaluate this for one more week before potentially having among on the week four waiver wire column and with that we wrap up monday night football and we turn to stay following the real star of the as we begin our injury. Updates and finding a teams don't have to label a player as questionable doubtful or good to go until friday yet. Jon gruden did us all a favor and got way ahead of the curve on a couple of his offensive stars. Yeah he's already talking about Josh jacobs as very questionable. Josh jacobs obviously miss this game because of toe and ankle injuries and i thought the way he leaned on the very questionable makes it sound like josh jacobs could be absent this week. Derek carr questionable on the side of the leaning towards he will play if you saw derek carr went down briefly because of his ankle. The team that very nervous he was able to walk off..

"We are on week three field. Yates matthew berry Inbounding up here. Thank god ron week. Three what do you say that you know what i just want to. I want to say like. I like to give you a hard time like to like to poke a little bit. Have have some fun with you. You know alex you the same way in do indeed you do. Congratulations to you mason. Crosby not come up with ten points last night. He only with five daniels crappy detroit. Lions get a stop i called. It could not get a stop. Except when the packers were on their own side of the field said they were going be too efficient matthew. I thought they could get at least one or two field goals. It is what it like. What are you going to do. I mean anyway whatever. I came up four point short. I lost a feel gates in the war room leak by four points. I despite having what. I believed to be one of the better teams in the league. Well this ally emo- until team in that league despite having like a really like i've you know you had a high score against me and week one. Mina kimes had a good score high score against in week number one and And of course ryan fitzpatrick quarterback and he got injured in that game. And i lost amina two by six points or something like that. What long season. Here's what i take away from this. Here's what i take away from this. However just i'm gonna give this. I think this is good advice for anyone that own to in a particular league right. I was thinking like drinking like no line. I get a sixteen team league last year. I lead wire-to-wire. I was the number one going into the playoffs. I was the number one seed. I had the highest points in the league loss. In the first round i played camakers second high scoring the in the first week of the playoffs but lost because the guy played the eighth seed the person who ultimately ended up winning the war room league glass and a lot of words for the team that scored more points than you. I'm just trying to figure out what the scores hang. Hang on okay. all right all right. The team that won the league last year started one and three snuck into the playoffs as the eighth seed on a tiebreaker and ultimately ended up winning the league. Just all i'm saying is to to a long season and that if you own to make no mistake you don't have a lot of room for. I need a win. This week with three is not great but like if you can get into. You're fine you're fine so it's just. It's not time to panic just yet. It's time to bail on your team. It's not time.

"Jamal williams who had been on the injury report was taken off. No designation for this game. So both d andrea swift and jamaal williams should play one more update. Here's the i think you have the information. In regards to jarvis landry but of an update their yet germany fowler just confirming what we talked about earlier that he has an mc l. sprains that is official no update on a timeline of course mc l. spring there for jarvis. Landry him back on the field we shall see if his ironman streak continues or not. Feel nice question. Do you want me to go. I just want to know. Kyle put on the note over under an rogers passing yards tonight. It's three hundred over over lake. Like i feel very comfortable. Yeah i believe this was a red zone question as well and being did on the red zone me. Yes i probably want again probably. It's what is still ahead by the accounting. Listen we've been doing the red zone for years. And years and years fantasy vote will now always gets out to an early lead. She always falters. I always end up winning it. Yeah i've wanted.

Yates an iron playing each other in the war room league. I am down by nine point three or something like that. We don't do decimal scoring. We do have kickers in the sixteen team. War room league field as done and again. He's up by nine point. Something i am done except for mason crosby does mason crosby get ten points tonight you to know. I feel bad saying this.

I i maybe i could just text aaron rodgers and say you know what. Let's bring mason crosby in you know because no not because he's a fan of mine but because he's a fan of fields and then he would want to help him out by saying.

"With faint praise. I don't know again. He's not compared to what we're talking about. The waiver wire column that to me would not be the strongest of waiver add. Let's rip through a few more here. Matthew corey davis could call by you on the hate list. And there's probably pretty good reason. A zach wilson completed more passes to patriots defensive players than. He did corey davis on sunday to catches on five targets for eight yards. Yeah i'm not worried about it. I mean that was again. That's bill bell check. It's a rookie quarterback bat offensive line. They shut down corey davis. i think. Corey davis has much closer to week. One week two again. He was on the hate list. I i didn't want any part of him this week. But do i think he leads that team and targets and do i yes. I think that teams throwing a lot this year. Yes and do. I think he's a talented player. Yes so. I'm not to keep on your bench but he'll be fine going forward. Nice week for tyler boyd. Seven catches for seventy three yards. Kind of what. You were hoping for and expecting tyler martinez just two catches yesterday but both he antiguans found the end zone. So boy gets the volume. He needed to be on the radar. We talked about this fantasy football now. About hey you panicked about tyler born. We're no honestly going again. Look cooper cup did out of the slot. We like tyler boyd. Going against the bears that have struggled against the slot now through two games this season and so tell avoids talented. It's gonna there's quote unquote days like this for all those wide receivers three really talented passengers in cincinnati not to mention joe mixing. Who's a part of the passing game as well and so. If you have your marchesi got bailed out by the touchdown you would like to see in a little bit more usage but as all those guys established themselves. There's gonna be there's gonna be there's gonna be buoyed weeks higgin weeks and chase weeks and we find. But they're all fantasy viable. It is one of the best wide receiver groups in the nfl fantasy. Julio jones okay now. Julio jones looked much better yesterday than he did in week one hundred and twenty eight yard. And really this really should have been seven catches. One hundred and thirty four yards and a touchdown touchdown taking off the board yesterday insane. What a terrible call. Now before the podcast is that the spirit of replay the intention of replay is to overturn plays. That are clearly an obviously wrong to have conclusive video evidence if julio jones foot was out of bounds it was by a fingernail if the play had been called on the field incomplete. It should've remained incomplete. I made that exact point on twitter. I have no the problem. Is they call it a touchdown on the field and there was no from any angle. There was nothing inclusive about the fact that he stepped out. I'm like i. I agree with you. Had they called it incomplete on the field and they you know they through the red flag. I would've said keep it in complete. The call stands. This is a little inside thing but like when you hear a rough say the cost stands it. It means they don't have enough to overturn. But they say the calls confirmed that means they agree with the call so to me what it should have been. The call stands meaning like we don't know if it's right or wrong. But there's nothing conclusive enough for us. To overturn it to the call just stands and so that's what it should have been just when you hear restocking stalking by the way when they announced the crowd. That's what it means. The difference between stands in confirms and listen. I was happy about that. Just because you. And i are playing in the war room league. You have ryan tannehill and then also by the way i have. Julio jones on may hate list and another touchdown would have made that call even worse than it already was because as a bad call by me tuffah. Listen i i was wrong on julio this week but it was good to see it was good to see and the weird part though is. Aj brown tough game for him. It's been a tough game for that. Titans passing offense. That offensive line looks bad field. I think the hope though first of all the one hundred percent correct the hope is that what they saw in the second half when they got things going not just in the passing game but specifically in the running game is what is head for tennessee. Right as we all know. Derrick henry. Just an absolute. He was king yesterday in the second half. He was unbelievable. Was the big dog. No surprise that we saw a much more efficient passing game. When derrick henry is also running the ball very effectively one more and then i wanted to make sure he gets to his update on monday night. Football because we do have a couple of injuries that are important to monitor mike evans. You just mentioned in matthew end we all. We're optimistic that week one was going to be an aberration. And if you watch the opening drive yesterday of that. Buccaneers falcons game. I could be wrong. But i one hundred percent believe the. Tom brady heard everything about the quiet day. For mike evans and said that's the guy the target early in this game because he did. Yeah tom brady. Most quarterbacks are like this but there might be a better quarterback in the nfl in nfl. History than tom brady at this in terms of making sure multiple guys get involved keeping them active and interesting interested and not. The mike evans is in a pro. He is he would be. But honestly mike evans insanely talented wide receiver. He needs to be a big part of this buccaneers offense. We talked about this on fantasy football now sunday morning as well that we expected to be game for mike evans. Because he'd been quiet in week. One stout we gave on fantasy will now sunday morning. Where we said like look start. Mike evans don't panic. Is that last year. There were six different times. He was wide receiver forty five or worse and he's still finished last year as a top twenty fancy wide receiver. That's mike evans. There's gonna be some weeks down weeks you just have to start him every week and hope and obviously this is a weak that paid off. There's no question that tom brady. Wanted to get him. Evolves no by the way it's been two straight weeks of gronk big week for my cabins kind of a quiet day for antonio brown next week. He's gonna get antonio brown back involved like that's what they do. Tough match-up for brady as i believe. He plays the rams on sunday. He does play the rams in los angeles daniel. What are you got going to say. I think that mike evans is like the king. Size version of tyler. Lockett like title like the snacks. The snack size candy bar and mike evans is like the king size. We're like they both this part of it right. They're going to have weeks where you have some tough weeks and they're gonna have weeks where they both absolutely crushed it and you do it by the way very different wide. Receiver saying tyler lock. It's been real all Stefan you couple interrupt as before we get to monday night. Football is andrea swift. Going to play tonight for the toy line. Yes the plan is for the andrea swift. Play tonight. I always say the plant. The plan is that is what we are hearing. Is that the plan is pretty under swift to play tonight. But just remember during warmups double-check etc. In case you need to make a last minute switch and also.

"We're gonna quickly recap mike's wide. Receiver cornerback matches before we get into our thursday night football. Let's begin here. Mike with alan robertson. Who he called him. An upgrade facing off against cincinnati. Darn moonie where he go upgrade. Keep them coming abbots higgins other side of the game upgrade upgrade upgrade all them bengals so bengals and bears every wide receiver in that game isn't upgraded abad. Sounds like mike. You're like the guy who like the first kid comes to your to your house for halloween. Like your wife. Specifically bought like a certain amount of candy you got a ration amount verse. Kit comes in. You're like here's four snicker spar you're doing enough. You get an upgrade. You get an upgrade by extra. So i can do that. Wow this is my first year being a homeowner. I get to have people come by for for halloween to give them lots of candy. Apples and bananas. Okay i'm telling you. Fool is the only way to go as a kid that always i was crack which which neighbors ran out the real. If you wanna be a favor yeah. It's a good way to get started. I don't want any nil away. Favors not a favorite of the parents. Though art and mike you got to be upgraded. He's on core now downgraded gate and sanders downgrade. Right jarvis landry downgrade their. You have kept their five upgrade. Three downgrades for you keep in mind. This context every single sunday. We always recap it as well on fantasy football now on sunday morning to have mike there. It's always great to have. Mike join us for that portion of the show and now we turn to our thursday night football game preview and preview washing football teams three point favorite. I love this the over under his forty point five points. I love this stat. I saw this morning. I thought was interesting. Apparently the internet does as well put it on twitter. Daniel jones is four no in his career. Now actually let me take that back because some people really don't believe that windsor quarterback stat let me rephrase. The giants are four no against the washington football team when daniel jones and their starter. The giants are in five in prime time when daniel jones is their starter. Something's gotta give tonight right. One of those streaks is coming to an end. Although i did love how thousand people commented them replied like. It's definitely gonna be a tyson. I would you could be. It could be for two point. Five points is the over. But let's get into the washington side and stefania as somebody who rosters until you gibson and the war room league. I was a little bit concerned. When i saw him on the injury report on monday even during a short week. What can you tell us about his game status. He is off the injury report for the game. And even though monday was listed as limited practice tuesday and wednesday where listed as full but again in the short weeks these guys often don't practice in washington. Did not practice for real on monday or wednesday. So those were estimation so probably the notion is that they would have given him less reps to allow him some recovery time. But i don't think any worries by the way it's his shoulder. Nothing about his toe. And that was the big deal injury coming into the season. So i actually took a that. That caught my attention more that the tow is not even listed any longer. Okay so no more tokens Children concern is really no concern whatsoever. Mike he was a player that you were so optimistic about coming into the season point totals not great in week one but there were encouraging signs. No question about it. The usage wedge was exactly what we were hoping for one hundred percent. He played thirty. Think about this. He was a finnish wide receiver thirteen. He missed some time last year. Finish like me. Running back would've been good if he was maclaurin. Already jumping jumping the gun. Look he missed. He missed a few games. We saw a lot of jd mckissick and even paint and barbara. Last season. he only played thirty percent of the snaps. It was a top fifty fantasy running back. He played sixty seven percent and really good sign. We did not see very much. Eighty mcisaac twenty carries and five targets twenty five percent target sharing in that in very low volume passing in washington but nonetheless. One quarter of the targets went to him and all of that was taylor. Heineke played he started to write that game twelve and expected fantasy points at running back. Better days are certainly head. And they're facing the giants your member. Melvin gordon running for that long touchdown against some last week deal at one hundred and forty six yards and a rushing touchdown last week. Five point eight yards per carry was highest in the nfl the giants it and show us that they're dominant defense out of the gate anyway. So that's a good sign. You don't want to overreact. One week but nonetheless gibson volume talent situation good defense keeping them closer. We can run the ball plenty superpower for gibson as the top ten play all right and how term chlorine though because tear maclaurin always good an incredible catch last week the one that went viral that over the shoulder adjusting. Your the sideline catch that remind you. Just how good terry maclaurin is but we went to the poll and we asked whether our fans were concerned about tara maclaurin without ryan fitzpatrick and the number showed us at fifty five point. One percent of people said they are concerned. I'll be honestly mike. I'm not really concerned. I said this earlier in the week and first of all. He's a great player. We always want to trust the talent. But second of all love ryan fitzpatrick. We all do that. Being said i don't know ryan. Fitzpatrick is leaps and bounds. Better than taylor heineke as pertains like fantasy output right. He's definitely better. But this is not like going from ryan fitzpatrick to where the quarterback play was the beginning of the season last year in washington. Exactly i mean he's already played with a lot of quarterback even projected the start this year. Right i've used at logan thomas stat. I've thrown it around all mentioned to hear it again minute when we talk about him but he has an upgrade quarterback play so earnest gurneys. Been a really good fantasy wide receiver and look at only three targets in week one. The only ran twenty two pass plays i was just talking about. It wasn't much of a a game where they were throwing the ball very much. Averaged eight point seven per game last year. He's had five or more targets in nineteen straight games prior to week one. Well i mean that shows you how much of a fluke that was nineteen consecutive games. And we've seen him with heineke before they played in that playoff game together. Eight targets six catches seventy five yards so it didn't score but still deliver. The goods easily. Could have if. I have a reservation though this week. It is his matchup wide receiver. Cornerback matchup is tough. He was on the perimeter just under seventy percent of the time in week. One is going to see james bradberry and adore jackson. Both of those guys played well in week. One mclaren did have games against the giants. Both games are pretty good but he only saw bradberry some of the time and of course it or jackson wasn't on the other side so it is a tough match up and keep in mind the giant really good against the perimeter in week..

"Nfl views him as a player that even when he's not drawing top coverage because of aj brown and even when he's got a very efficient quarterback and even when when things are going well the running game can draw a ton of attention for the defense. That maybe he's not bound for the massive state of his his fantasy success. Sometimes the wall comes fast for nfl players. I'm not saying that's happened yet. For who john week but tough one for me. I totally totally get it. Because they're on the road at seattle tough place to play seattle. Look good sounds like rain. In the forecast which seattle it could change and also could be pouring rain. It's and recruit seattle's defense look good against the call with you know so it's really wanting. It is a tricky one. I i'm hoping he does not have a good game. Because you and i play each other in the war room league this week ryan tannehill big derrick henry. Game okay handoffs. I hope it's like six touchdowns for derrick henry and five for ryan tannehill which seems reasonable enough to me right. Yeah let's make it happen joel. Henry julio jones is the one of the most difficult players to rank for this book. I think i haven't right around wide receiver thirty so he's a borderline flex play this week. I hope i'm not overreacting too much again. Really the story of that day of that game between the cardinals and the titans was the defensive front of the cardinals completely overwhelming. That titans offensive line is going to do a for coming back tomorrow so on thursday show. We'll have mike clay available to preview thursday night football. We'll take a look at the upcoming washington football team against the new york. Giants matchup possible talk about wide. Receiver quarterback matchups. Perhaps some news. Anything else to plug on the way out. No i'll i'll be up late tonight. Finishing up love hate a guy basically takes me two nights to finish it so i won't be here tomorrow.

"Three at halftime wins. Me wouldn't surprise me at all. I think andrea swift at at twenty one. Sorry i'm at twenty four this week and but i like him jamal williams again lower than you would normally play them but actually think those guys because both guys should be involved in the passing game. And i do think i'm with you. I think i think san francisco probably kills them. And so i think there's i think there's some junk time. I think there's some dump offs. That's a fierce defensive front for the forty niners and we know that the lines are supposed to have decent offensive line here. But they're going to get to jared goff. Jared goff does not do well under pressure. At least he didn't in la and so my expectation is both swift and jamaal williams are both good pass catching running backs and i think. Npr formats both guys will be reasonably viable this week. You know in a in a in a way. So i don't know if anybody about i don't know if daniels to find you're aware of this yet but i have been told that there has been confirmation that daniel and their two teams are playing against each other. They have made a wager already and wandered into the into the studio earlier today with these dazzled gucci sunglasses. Probably more than my house true. Meanwhile daniel fine well. It wasn't star. Find your has to walk by paparazzi every single time. She has to get through. It is what it is. Has those her security detail. Just doesn't always get all of them. Rice and daniel has a sweet motorcycle. So i've been told that if the lions win. He annual gucci sunglasses. If the forty niners. Winston finally gets to ride the motorcycle for the rest of the season to work. That's accurate this sunglasses with a helmet. But you can wear sunglasses. What else is this friendly. Eps feel what do you mean. Make a wager. What if what if. What if the lions win to find your has to grow a big bushy beard. Yeah no she's capable of the joke. Now what's the line. How much are you going to give me stuff on you. Start to get his podcast track. Do not have you listen to this. Podcast never to find you. She won't give lines. Okay what's the line currently points. That's not enough. I need eleven negotiate. He's done hold your ground. We can't wait. I'll take it. What's the by. I'll take it. We'll figure out what's your official alleged at the end of the podcast. We'll talk about some committees this weekend that we want to figure out what they are going to look like. Once the games actually begin which means it's time for us to go to brought to you by truly hard seltzer and in that game we were just talking about the forty niners and the detroit lions. The question is. Can you start both forty niners running backs against detroit. I say definitively know matthew. What do you say. So yes really. They're going to kill him. Trace urban trae sermon. I'm in the room league against this week. I'm starting trae sermon against her. Wow i love team not a sixteen team league. I wouldn't do it trae sermon. He's sniped from me. By the way in the draft title in the draft rooms. To find your when i i went back to back with trae lance and trae sermon. That way i didn't. I always mess up. Their names. Called trae lansbury sermons vice versa. So i drafted those two back to back before it got back to you doing. It's defined says in the in the in the chat she goes. I am never speaking to you again. I have to regret. I said you know what promises so look to regrets for me in the preseason. I just think they're going to. I think they're going to run over to troy. And i think both guys get significant work really. I think it's a committee you think it's almost i think it's very much to begin the season. And then we'll see beside beyond that you. Have you have trace sermon at running back. Forty two i might be too high. Wow yeah i mean trey sermons a top forty fantasy running back this week. I say that the turf you want to do that one. Yeah let's do it this week. I'll take that. I say trae sermon is a top forty fantasy running back in week. One i say. I is not a top forty running back in week. One put on the board feels be honestly. I have him at thirty two. And i think i might be too low on trace around and we both agree on moster though right my team. Dr season have to progress from this. Preseason not be more bullish. On robbie anderson for the full year and not being more bullish on rahim moster at least to begin the season and maybe for the full year two regrets and fantasy. This i mean. I'm with you. I look i heard at twenty two among running backs in my preseason ranks and i thought that that might still be too low. I've been high on trae sermon. All throughout the process he's one of my big sleepers. By the way i i have robbie anderson in the war room league. Let's talk. let's talk a little trade it. I'll tell you what though field we.

"Yates mcclay hello there. Hey what's going on. Football is back. Finally two as well mornings to find you and daniel here to hey buddy. Good morning it's going to use it is. It is a great day today. We've all been waiting for for a long long time. Yeah i stay with no matthew. You're talking about point played. Yes we do have football back tonight. The bucks and the cowboys kicked the season off. We have so there were two hundred and fifty six games. In a previous seasons we add sixteen more two hundred and seventy two regular season games ahead of us over the next eighteen weeks. Of course it begins tonight and concludes week. One monday night football. Espn just one week. One monday night football game this year. That is the ravens traveling cost across the country. To play the raiders. I tell you. I love those double header monday night. Football games sleep schedule. Glad there's only one totally seriously completely agree that one thirty go to bed time east coast brutal souls. We're going to preview the game tonight. We're gonna talk about some news and a variety of other things but let's begin to find you. It's week one. It is the first time. The teams are required to submit an injury report. The first day that we all have information to react to other than that bucks in cowboys injury report that has been taking place throughout the week because they played tonight and yesterday us. An actor did not participate for the chargers. We know about this. Well we know that austin equity plays fantasy football and so that's going to factor into this in a bit but let's start with the fact that he didn't practice and he was listed on the chargers injury report as a d. n. p. did not participate because of a hamstring issue. And i understand why people got nervous right. He missed six games last year with a serious hamstring injury. So you hear that and you get nervous but you need to remember that. Sometimes players don't practice and it's a proactive move. You know it could be as simple as he felt a little tightness. Or a little stiffness. Maybe a little soreness from the work. They've been doing the preseason they said do you know let's just take it easy and work on the side. They have to put it body part there so potentially that's part of it. We also know that nearly half the players get a d. n. p. on wednesday are full participants by friday so with more days to go in the week. Let's not worry too much about this. But most importantly most importantly austin tweeted about three hours before the official injury report came out. So i'm guessing it was right before practice. He tweeted a picture. You know video clip of himself going through some various moves and then said never been more ready or excited. I think those were words carefully chosen by a guy who understands that fantasy. Football managers might be paying attention. Okay that's great news. And i'll just say this so i'm just gonna peel the curtain back a little bit onto what happened last night because a lot of people were wondering what to do if they were having a last minute. Draft last night was the war room league draft. Lots of you are familiar with it because we talk about it. Frequently on this podcast. There are sixteen teams made up a variety of espn individuals. Including the most plugged. In people in the business chris mortenson adam schefter and the like and austin made it all the way to pick fifteen last night mike because there was so little information available yes to find your reference that tweet that had caught people's attention and i had to pick i pick fourteen. He went one. Pick behind me a pick. Fifteen and i'll be honest with you. Mike is that there's some scar tissue from someone who last year had the third pick with the fourth. Pick in the league and took saquon barkley and i learned the perils of basically not having your first round pick available for much if not all the season and i passed on him but at the same time. If i find out today that even with that tweet that was sent out. Just prior to the injury report that he's gonna miss four weeks the problem so i think it more the conservatives really not so much about the people that have him already on their rosters like already drafted him because at some cost at that point i think really the people that were most concerned with those that had the draft last night that i made a mistake passing him. Well hold on. I'm gonna check that tweet here see if a follow up tweet. Tha dot dot dot marie. I'm excited to go dot dot dot in week five. Make sure he's thinking might be okay. Obviously we don't know right now. We're gonna see what happens today. I don't think it made a big mistake. Because you're still getting a really good player. Tony gibson you know. I love antonio gibson. So i think you're fine air with gibson. I understand being conservative with your first round. Pick our good friend matthew berry that's as writer die. And he went another direction to travis kelsey which is a great option so now that could be just as much about kelsey as it is not about echo of so. If you're drafting today still think he should be gone towards the. We'll say the one to turn. But if you have ecuador and you're concerned right now. Justin jackson is out there and quite quite said that maybe gets fifteen touches or so. They've josh kelley there. Larry rowntree the rookie but it would probably be jackson the main guy so if you are panicking when it throw them on the bench..

"Of mine for those stones. While what course lally pip was the first baseman starting first baseman for the new york yankees and he got sick one day and then lou gehrig started in his place. In of course lou gehrig then set the record for consecutive games. Played until cal ripken obviously ended up breaking it many many years later but like while it never got his job back one day one day on the job and next thing you our so i'm not sure what scott was suggesting that email but i'm back just maybe four today tomorrow to see whether or not daniel is back. We've got me or meet. please. Listen i'm you know. Listen i'm a there's a chance i leave every single day make no mistake. I try to podcast like every day is my last done all out there on the cutting room floor. College football team had a last play across the back of their helmets. Like last podcast. Like do a shadow parliament take for that reference there. So let's get into a couple pieces of news before we get to some rankings. Talk because it is of course middle of week one which means we'll dive into ranks for the next five days if you include today as one day plus we're gonna plant our flags on some players later on the show some bold calls and things that we feel. I'm not so sure i would say strongly about. But we have an inkling on. We not be surprised if those things took place. We'll begin with some news. Maybe on bell lady on bell on bell signed with the baltimore ravens practice squad matthew quite fall for years ago certainly a little bit of a different standing in the nfl compared to what three years ago two years ago when he literally skipped the season because he was trying to sign a record setting right back contract he eventually got a very very lucrative deal but plan to be a fixture in the nfl for a long time. He's now on the ravens practice squad. Sound like there's a eventually elevated to the fifty three man roster. This comes on the heels of the team losing another running back. Just hail to a torn killys. He's out for the year sir fantasy. Is there anything of note here. Matthew other than the name you tell me and mike i want to see. I'm curious if you disagree here but my take on. This is that i feel like and i don't know disrespect intended here. But i feel like at this point in his career leaving bill sorta washed and that i feel like this is much more of a depth signing for the ravens than it is any sort of fantasy impact by. Like if i'm drafting tonight and we are drafting you and iron league together tonight with war room league draft tonight. Gus edwards would be the ravens running back that i draft i. I would draft. Tyson williams next. I would not draft. Lay down bell like we're in a sixteen team league draft tonight and i don't think bell should be drafted tonight. I'd be surprised if you and i if he's threat to anyone. I suppose tyson williams who we haven't seen in prime time as it were if if maybe he falters a little bit but i wonder field that if they had waited two days for if they'd waited two days to sign lady bell if they might have said like oh wait latavius murray's available and we'll get to that in just a moment i just. I feel like i feel like this. Was we need a guy. I wouldn't be surprised if there. I don't think they're done at running. Back is my instinct that they could sign of their players which is why right now. There is zero fantasy significance other than the fact that it's a really well known name. So mike rather than sort of continuing to beat the same points into the ground on on bell ask you. First about latavius murray. Who had unless you have a different opinion on libya november. You got ready to practice. Scott practice squad running back. He lost gig the daryl williams last year. You don't need them on your office right now. all right. so let's get to tavis. Murray then mike who this was not a major surprise if following saints camp closely however murray. You weren't here yesterday. But we talked about tony jones. Yesterday he referred him to latavius. Murray's drafting album cameras insurance and we thought there was some standalone value. Tony jones and twelve team leagues or deeper. And then the saints. Many hours later basically you know underlying that point so they have cut latavius. Murray a part of this was financially driven. Also the fact that tony jones look good. This preseason so mike what's the fantasy followed of latavius murray being released new orleans. I think tony jones slots rate in there to that same role right. I mean you've twain washington a number three running back and he doesn't really get much work on offense more of a special teamer so there's a path year for maybe. Some non-pwi are standalone value for tony jones. Junior maybe he gets ten to twelve carries some goal line work. Maybe one or two targets per game so there is some appeal. If you had marie on your bench whether it was insurance for kamara or just a late round running back you wanted to keep stashed just dropped. Murray pickup tony jones and see how plays out but nothing more than that. I've had a lot of questions that i draw player x. For this guy and usually there guys draft in the ninth tenth eleventh round. The answer is almost always going to be no. He's just a bench. Dash matthew adam latavius. Murray being dropped by these saints and whether he needs to be dropped. If you've already drafted him and fantasy leagues or would you hold tight because you mentioned baltimore. I think it's too logical for them to not place a call to latavius murray. And don't you think of the available running backs right now and there's not much i mean lady on bell got a job yesterday after base your interest all off-season devante freeman also working out for the ravens strengthen cannon working out for the ravens. Don't you feel like latavius. Murray's one call away from me being useful somewhere else he is. The question becomes like what's the best possible situ like even if he goes to he goes to baltimore to me. The best possible situation. Latavius murray not sure exist out there. I feel like Wherever latavius murray's signs is going to be more about hurting the fantasy value of somebody else. 'cause we we like latavius mary we. He's a good player. And so you know what i mean like. If he signed with a patriots he'd suddenly but if signed with the rams you totally be like if he was yet. Another guy with the forty niners. You'd be like okay like he's sort of like you sorta work through some of the. I'm just trying to think of like what's a running back. Meaty team like philadelphia. Could he go to philadelphia. I'm just like i'm trying to think of where so let me wear where. Where do you think he could land. That would be great for latavius. Latavius murray's fantasy value Probably nowhere the closest. I think he could get. Would maybe be would be other baltimore arizona. Only because i'm still not totally sold nares backfield but i think the scenario that i'm sort of examining here matthew. I'll throw one out. That would be sort of interesting. Would be maybe the chargers. I don't know how the chargers feel about the depth behind austin and there's been talking about whether acura will get the goal line work or not. I believe he will. Obviously he's my ride or die but you know there's there's like maybe it'll be larry roundtree or just jackson or something like that. Could you could see latavius mary. Maybe there i'm just. I'm throwing it out there reunion bardy the offensive coordinator so i just sit here. That i'm more mindful of is not if he signed somewhere right now. Is that if something happened to a player in week one that created the need elsewhere. I think tavis murray would be near teams. Preferred running back targets list. I think he would have to be. I mean as i mean again right to your point lay van. Bell trenton cannon. Todd gurley gotten some look. So i would agree with that statement but to your point..

"It's a run heavy team great offensive line and you're going to have to guard see samuel iook and kettle like there's gonna be some wide open running lanes for them on the always find a way to run the ball very well under kyle sheehan. Let's get to a couple last questions so late round flyers up but we talk about all the time in this podcast on this podcast. I should say of the picks that you made. Matthew is very late round. Pick that you liked the most. That's now on your roster. Yeah darnall mooney really like in darnall mooney like i think. The bears offense gets maligned. A little bit too much. I understand the concerns of bears. Fans and i get all that but this is a team. Last year there was eight and pass attempts. that was twelve and offensive. Plays from scrimmage with mitch trubisky and nick foles quarterback what are we thinking of. Andy dalton. i would argue. He's an upgrade over those two guys and we all agree that justin fields. It's not it's not if it's wind. Justin feels becomes the starter for the bears. I think he'll be an even bigger upgrade after alan robinson. There's a lot of targets available mooney flashed a lot last year. And if you watch the games if you go back and watch the tape. Moody was open a lot. They just couldn't get on the ball they overthrew may under him like he is fast. And you know making that leap from your one to year two. I really liked darnall. Moonies as a player as a prospect. And i think he's. He's one of my favorite late run. Flyers i snagged nelson aguilar late my last non-defense or counter to pick round fourteen for me and he has done nothing really during the preseason. He's been a little bit in and out of practice but nothing serious but this goes back to what we've talked about so many times on. This show is following the money. This is a player who last year finished. Second in the nfl in yards per reception he was a little bit hit or miss in terms of fantasy. That was in las vegas offense that ran through darren waller and also the running game a physical offensive line in england now with mack jones. I wonder if nelson aguilar's going to get back to his deep threat ways. I think the patriots offense obviously looked better. Throwing the ball with jones would have with cam newton under center so give me nelson lars. My favorite late round fly about used to find you own picks. I should say oh. Yeah so i i read. The directions didn't have to be your own pick. So i really liked calloway eric. Caribou took him in the tenth round. I think obviously he's going to have a lot of potential for the first six weeks now that we know that michael thomas is definitely not going to be there. I like him if i had to pick one of my own. I probably go with terrorists marshall on the panthers because i think that he's going to continue to develop when i saw him a camp. They were integrating him a lot. He got a lot of usage. So i think he's a player's marshalls marshals. Great preseason they like them a lot. They're the only concern. There's just they've got a lot of talent there in carolina. But it's one of the reasons why we talked with the other day like sam darnold and you take marshall late law marshland and dynasty. There's no question daniel okay. Cool hardman harmony. Eleven top ten wide receiver. Stop it all jokes. Aside mukul hardiman. Listen at the spot. That i'm taking him in the eleventh round. The idea that i've got my starters just locked up in front of him. I don't ever need him to really be started from me. But he's on an offense. It's absolutely unbelievable. And now that they've had a couple of people that have left that offense especially with sammy watkins. I think that there's at least a chance that michael hartmann could develop a role there and if anything were to happen to Obviously he would at least vault up from some perspective so as a guy. I don't really need to count. Just has a ton of upside. I love michael. Hartmann late late passes from tech mahomes. Good things often do happen to take away from the mock the last march after this season matthew anything you want to chime in with in with here just that i cross this draft grape. Wow at some point. You'd think at some point you think people would Would catch on. I guess. I guess if i'm if i'm going to. That's fine is that you know. It feels like quarterbacks are going earlier and not just this draft but in all drafts feels like you know for years. It's always wait on quarterback. Wait a quarterback and this year feels like quarterbacks are going earlier than normal inexpertly sometimes in home leagues they always do but in in court quote unquote expert leagues. They're going because as we talked about having. A good quarterback is the new mediocre quarterback. Because there's so many quarterbacks like you want elite quarterback you want somebody that runs as well. We just talked about the fact that mahomes one in the third here as well. And we're seeing backup rookie. Quarterbacks drafted guys like justin fields and tree. Lance are being drafted and they should be. Those guys are sleeper three. I think they're going to be fantasy superstars once they get the job. Like how rare is that rarely. Do you see rookie. Quarterbacks drafted especially ones that don't even have the job on week one my take. I already kind of got into this earlier. Some make quick is that. I don't want to be the first player to a quarterback just because you don't know when that train is going to start thereafter wannabe lasted quarterback as well. I agree with you though. It does seem like that. Mid tier of quarterback not mature. But that second tier of quarterbacks is going earlier than in previous years. I'm happy to be a part of that here. Happy to grab someone like kyla. Murray and the six or seventh-round as opposed to waiting until the tenth or eleventh round. Grab my quarterbacks tanya what he got for takeaway. I kind of alluded to it as well. I really don't love going zero running back at the in my strategy. I tried it. I didn't feel great about it. But i also really is for me draft order which you very rarely have control over but boy do i want to end up in the top half draft because i really liked the top running backs some five or six and then i'm out in the war room league ha ha takeaway is that i need to grab a running back. In the first two rounds. I have waited similar to what savan just talked about. I need to get somebody. That is going to be my cornerstone of my running back class. And i think i need to grab someone because he gets to dicey too quickly and with that same point i also think that there is one of seven tight ends matthew. Oh you've talked about this as well. Yes. there's one of seven tight ends. That i want and i'm making sure i'm getting one of those seven tight ends as my starter. Yeah i liked that darren fells. Stop it no music not fielder and destroyed top. It was the who's the big touched is the guy that caught the touchdown and a show four four four. Who can dance danseuse are. That's all we have for today. That's gonna do it for our show. We'll be back tomorrow with a fantasy superstar interview. When i say superstar that may be under selling the annual defining injury. Show is also tomorrow. I'm telling you.

"Who are ranked like aaron jones or a nick chubb players might have slightly more work weekend and week out. Let's get to the wide receivers matthew and we're talking about two of the very best. In fantasy in real life period decay. Metcalf who last year was wide receiver. Ten he had eighty three catches for thirteen hundred and three yards and ten touchdowns but again jekyll and hyde season his first. Eight games eight touchdowns. His last eight games two touchdowns. I'm not concerned. Matthew i people have theorized as to what happened last year in the second half of last season changing of philosophy opponents weren't necessarily vat dramatically different. I mean you're. I thought it was like they were playing teams. That were pretty good in the first half playing to pretty good in the second half to but like early russell. Wilson played porn second half of last year. Think that's fair. And i also think that in the second half of the season last year there were a number just because i remember i. Id k metcalf in the war room league and one of the reasons why we. I think we fourteen last year but like he had a couple of tough games against jalen ramsey. A tough couple. Tough games against patrick peterson like he just. He suddenly got locked up a few times by true shutdown corners like he had some to some really tough match ups over the second half of the year. But none of that concerns. You know what i'm turning. Why grabble answer. why why. Why eight touchdowns and then two touchdowns and that's what happened. This is that the production fell off a little bit. But you know in like there. Was that one game where like he. He caught a touchdown pass and ran the whole distance. I wanna say it was a monday night or it was a national game. Remember they get called back due to penalty like he'd done. Nothing i want to say was i want to see. What was it jalen ramsey. It was either. The cardinals game are is member of the game where he caught buddha baker unbelievable which is also amazing but there was one where he had a long touchdown called back due to penalty which was sort of like this ticky tack holding penalty on the other side of the field. I remember that being drove me crazy. Anyway i lotta daycare. I had a lot of decay metcalf last year. So just would love areas zoned in wide receiver. One player that has as much touchdown upside is basically any wide receiver other than devante atoms. Because of his skill set down the field and also the fact that in the red zone he is a terror would like to see a little bit more consistent volume. You did have eight games last year with four or fewer catches but i think that will increase year over year. He still by the way is only in his third. Nfl season right. Which is is the guy top three and ends targets. You know top eight in red zone target to your point like just like just an absolute beast in sometimes by the way when he gets a little reception. Don't need it because it's like it's like when you when you score on eighty yard touchdown play like for one twenty-one fine exactly yeah exactly. Let's tyler lockett though because tyler lockett is going to be drafted high matthew wide receiver twenty four on both your in my board. But he's going to be maddening he just will be. It's a fact every year. You look at last year's raw total thinking yourself. Wow one hundred receptions for one thousand fifty four yards and ten touchdowns now. I hate when we do this. Because i'm guilty of but i'm gonna do it right now when you take away a player's best game. How would the season look if you take away. That one game last year or tyler. Lock fifteen catches for two hundred and fifteen yards in two touchdowns over fifteen remaining games. He had eighty five catches for eight hundred. Thirty nine yards and eight touchdowns that obviously. He's a really incredible player. But we also know that from weeks. Twelve to sixteen last year weeks twelve through sixteen very important portions of the fantasy season in five games. Twenty one catches never more than sixty three receiving yards and zero touchdowns during that stretch over the course that he's going to be amazing but we had multiple years here from being a little bit up and down which is why i do not have them inside. My top twenty wide receivers. Even though if i had the opportunity to bet. I would bet that he will finish the one of the top twenty scoring fancy out this year. Yeah exactly. I mean he. This is i think this is something that brought up my dre manifesto available now on. Espn dot com for free..

"Hey guys huge fan of all of you. I'm just curious with all the mock draft and real draft. You've done so far. Where's your favorite spot to dry from. Thank you great question. Britney thanks for that one a bigger fan of she's edges a huge fan of bolivars. If she's still alive you're gonna answer me. I have to admit. I took matthews advice last year and took daniel jones and the draft report. The other guys right now. that's fair. Britney that's fair expecting stefan. You assume that was. I assume every britney i apologize. Thank you for being a fan after that brutal call from last year. Me the blue that call. It's also dave cattleman so come on. Let's be honest spicy for matthew. Iran is not an accurate. Let's talk about our favorite drafters mike. So let's assume heck ten or twelve team league. Where do you think you would like to be whether it's one specific spot or range of spots it. Look i i hate to give this answer but pick your spot. Y'all stand alex man. I don't have a major issue with any spot. If i'm if i'm picking someone just says. Go pick your spy gate. I i just take mccaffrey. I'll just take that number one spa. However i'm going to twelve team draft right now and there's matthew berry guy and i'm picking up the tw- i'm picking twelve at that turn. And i gotta be honest. Dominating this draft. Just have dominating this nick chubb antonio gibson robber woods amari cooper brand. Ut higgins noah. Fan russell wilson. I mean just complete dominance from the twelve watt. I know has a chance. Here are my team. My team in that league is pretty good too. Oh no. I don't think so. I don't i don't think so anyway. That's from the twelfth. So let's say i'm in the five spot and i in that particular league and go ahead. Yeah derrick henry. Decay metcalf chris carson. Adam theon josh allen. Tyler boyd logan thomas. I like some of those guys. There's a lot of older players there. Though that makes you a little nervous dynasty or what. No it's the best ball. It's a it's a. It's a one quarterback best ball interesting so rate your question brittany i would. It depends on sort of the league that you're in and what your rules are but assuming you're playing on. Espn santa league which is a one quarterback league ten team. I agree with mike. I want the first pick. But i think i'd really want to be in the first four picks got. I think there are four running backs that are are really five. I mean zeke in there as well sort sorta. I think there are five running backs that are super super safe if you want to like sort of nitpick. Is there a concern. That derrick henry doesn't get all the touchdowns that he has previously because he doesn't really catch a lot of passes is they're concerned about chimera if tastes hill is the starter in you. Know he averaged fourteen fantasy points per game when taste was started last year. And so like again if you want to nitpick so maybe in the first three but honestly i think in the upper half of the draft because wide receiver so deep. I want one of those running backs where there's really no questions at all feels like sort of a dead zone. The place where you may not want to be is seven through nine ten. If it's ten team league at least you have back to back. Picks potentially feel good about other having elite wide receiver. Play on your on your roster or two running back to the rock. Solid gets a little bit sort of hairier between six. Seven eight nine. We're having to decide to take that last running back or do i take that first wide. Receiver yeah i mean. That's a good spot to get travis. Kelsey though which. I'm i'm more than happy to do in the first round but i will say this another advantage to the first overall pick is when you come back around the two-three area. I mean there's some serious talent i mean if you start mccaffrey who could come back and go a justin jefferson and potentially aj brown. I mean that's about where they're going. Maybe keenan allen or even clyde edwards delay or someone like that. If you wanna go running back. I mean there are seriously a lot of talent at that youth return and that's that's fantastic. You can really get a good one two three start pick. Five is my favorite spot this year. Only because i feel good. I'll get any of my top five running backs and then i am closest up for my second round. Pick so pick five hundred my sweet in the middle like that especially you. Don't get caught on a at the end of any runs. If there's a position run then you're you're not sort of like stuck at the end trying to figure out where you wanna go understanding that matthew usually picks first base off of reverse order last. Standings wow i know it's unfamiliar when i play together in the war room league. Would you like to come visit my trophy. Because i know i can't come visit yours. I've been for a few years so give me some time. I'm calling a win this year in the warmly got. Let me ask you a couple of questions here And a michael start with you. What is the right time. And take the top of the single positions players at other quarterback or end. How soon for a quarterback how soon for tight end well. My my zone for quarterback is really around six and seven looking at it. Twelve team league. So maybe even a pinch later and attend teamer but like dak prescott lamar jackson. That's my really where i'm going for. I want one of those guys that we know. They have elite ceilings. Last time we saw. Jackie was qb to For a full season then obviously he was on pace for over seven thousand yards early last season before his injury. And of course. Lamar jackson seen him be the qb one before so. I liked that tear at quarterback..

"war room league" Discussed on Nickel Package

"I'm getting paid for this question. Number one field. We have been texting all weekend about the rookie quarterback's so i'm just going to this. Isn't like a rank them question. I just want to know who impressed you. The most who is the best. But who impressed you. The most of the five justin field in part because he had the longest opportunity to play so we got the see the most from him. I thought though that just like there was growth shown from the beginning of the game where it felt like dinners. Got the best of him and like there were a couple throws like i'm like i know he can make that throw and he just missed or not not entirely missed but didn't put it right on the money but showed a lot of growth into the second half and yes he also faced decreasing levels of competition in the second half but the fact that he grew from i thought the first couple of drives to the subsequent derived. I thought was notable enough to give him like that. If i had to hand out a most impressive of those rookie quarterback's he would win. But all them. I thought were like not a single one. Raised my concerns much at all. They're kind of all advertise. They all had the traits that we saw in college. And i think any all fantasies should feel pretty good. I would put it that way. Yeah our question number. And i bet ovation say it wasn't the five record the first round rookie quarterback's because you just mentioned davis and he's not the only rookie quarterback. He played all right question number. Two who is a non quarterback rookie. Who impressed you this weekend. Non quarterback rookie. That impressed me this weekend. Let me take a prepared you for this. I'm just pulling up all the teams really ever seen this weekend. That makes me think. Of course my my browsers to go slower when i think about a team that sued because we did not see a ton of all of them. So let me Say specific. I was going to say like age. Martinez look good on that one catch that he had a in their in their they win if they want which is irrelevant in. The preseason doesn't matter doesn't matter Did you have an obvious answer. Put it back in the game. And he did look good but he did look good again. He did look good. Let a chart targets. Was josh power. By the way he did look now look good. I mean from the rams game. I'm obsessed with. Jacob ter harris whose their fourth round tight end who didn't play football until two years ago witches. He's he's six five guy who ran a four three nine. Hey hey stats. Don't matter in the preseason but they at least sometimes they are the derivative of interesting trades and reminder stevenson ripped off tw two touchdowns for the patriots including a ninety one yard. Which i he's probably the player that he's a fourth round. Pick that i think a year from now could be a very much a part of their offense and maybe sooner than that. I mean the guy to Again running backs can fluctuate all over the board. But it's not like you can't find really good for me back. He's going to be a player for the patriots. I question three. This is not what should they do. But do you think andy. Dalton is the starter week one versus the rams first chicago. No i changed my mind. There is that like. I think we're getting to. The rhetoric is already changing for matinee by to the point that i truly believe that it'll be justin fields. Whether that's announced two weeks from now the week of the game itself. I think just the field i saw. He was thrown now robinson. Someone tweeted about that. He was playing with the ones. And it's like all right. We're me life. It's having its avenue being questioned four so you are one of the hosts of the fantasy. Focus football podcast. I've asked you for advice now. I'm giving you the chance to give advice to meantime show listeners. Can you give us a name asleep. Pick at wide receiver. I feel like i'm putting you on the spot. Good i was. I was gonna give you a running back one so Because i have sort of changed my view in which i look through a look at sleepers. Only because there's so much coverage of the league which is tremendous right. I love the fact that there's so much exposure that most of the names that i mentioned sleepers Drafted in like two years ago. Meanwhile like he was in high school two years ago. We're never but like. I think i will say running back to is that to dylan's on an unknown name but based off where he's going if something were happened to aaron jones and even alongside aaron jones he may have standalone value. It'd dylan reeks of superstardom to me. He really brining mac stardom. I should say superstars probably a little bit gratuitous. But i think he'd be a really really good player as far as a wide receiver. A true sleeper is not that well known donovan. People's jones has been the talk or one of the talks of brown's training camps. six round. Pick out of michigan. A year ago always had a lot of potential. He was being drafted are suing me. He went later in the draft than his talent. Probably suggested lady leading into his final year at michigan. But i think donna jones has a chance to contribute as maybe cleveland's third wide receiver and he could figure into their future plans. Twenty twenty two and beyond. Yes that's definitely something to keep an eye on with how much money they're spending all right. Well as always last question comes from lenny. So lenny also knows that your fancy expert avid listener too fancy focused and he wants to know if you're gonna be embarrassed when his co host me times when i beat you now that i'm joining the espn league with you. I am so excited. That you're gonna be part of the war room league and lenny i know will be probably making all the difficult decisions for that roster but it's such a fun it's an enjoyable league for so many reasons sixteen teams which you sixteen teenagers just hard in general right especially those soon. Like titanic runningback where the death is so so thin There are certain people in that league that i prefer that i enjoy losing to.

"Games where there are huge numbers five catches ninety six yards two. Tv's and you look at talent. You say all i see why atlanta drafted him where it did but from a fantasy standpoint weakened weak out production. Put me down and i'm not going to use a high pick on him this season and i know they're going to be games. Probably against me where the guy goes off. But it's not going to be on a consistent basis in my mind. Let's keep them proven wrong. I'm with you especially when you can get more polish player like tj hopkinson who has eighty catch ceiling in the same ranger mark andrews. Who's done it already. You know these guys.

"The waiver wire calm for a number of weeks like enticed every week. You're like guys. Do you understand what james crowder is doing here. Especially in pr like you know but in you always have to take camp records with a camp reports with a grain of salt. I'm telling you right now. But the allies you're more like high. Trade is out of control hype. Train is out of control. Train is moving fast right now. But you're right matthew and that. I'm not saying this is what i don't think that allies more guaranteed to fall into this bucket but every year i mean almost every team. There's like ten guys per roster they're like oh my god. This player looks amazing. Right i mean how. Many players are receiving positive buzz. Right now we're talking about it again. And i'm not trying to like earlier. We were talking like nikiel. Area has been legitimately one of the most housed about players at the patriots training camp. Who knows if that will amount to anything. So i think lies more a player. I i think we all kind of agree is really potentially useful in dynasty. Don't know that he's the kind of guy that a touchdown upside you just don't see. i mean. we talked about this. Mike clay for years on the podcast nonetheless. Lot receivers with a bunch of tied inequity. Right russia and equity. Excuse you just don't see a bunch of guys that are five foot eight diminutive in size going up and winning with fades in the red zone or something like that. So i actually think. It's corey davis said. I would believe it or not because first of all like it's laughable. How we don't. He's like we've talked about five thousand times and yet we can't just like get ready to accept. It's just a good solid football player right. Like not sure. He lived the fifth overall. Pick billing when he came out but just a good solid started out with some in he. He had a bad hamstring injury as rookie year. Like what he has to health issues. Right correct so i think. Corey davis is the jets player amongst pastors that. I'm most interested in rostering. Let me ask you another question. Though one of these players blows up this year and finish his top twenty fantasy wide receiver. Which one is it. Who's most likely to be the answer to that question. I'm going to go with cory. Cory davis okay. How about you. I was gonna say i think allies more like i think it depends what you need at the end of your draft. I said allies more. Just because i think the upside is there but there's also a wide range of outcomes. If you're telling me like i need to. I need sixteen team league in our war room league. It's probably davis because who's more likely to be usable on a week to week basis. It's definitely corey davis. He's got a higher floor than i think. Allies you're more. I just think. And maybe it's a ten percent chance or fifteen percent chance. But i think it's within the range of outcomes that allies you're more has just monster year this year. I think but like. I think there's a there's a chance i just think that if you're elijah more i don't know he's a deep threat player right. I don't know that he's like ten. Or twelve touchdown guy. I think it's possible that coordinated competing with james credit who's also really good player for snaps in the slot. Yeah and i think like if. You're corey davis any i. I am excited about all the bus. I'm not diminishing. I believe that he's been as i. Just think that. If one of these guys has a thousand receiving yards and nine touchdowns or ten touchdowns league corey davis doing that. Because he's come close to doing it. In the past the touchdown thing is is very fair. By the way you mentioned denzel mims and you're talking about camp buzz. The camp buzz on danzon mims is the opposite direction easy. He's he's behind keelan coal by most reports so the jets the jets actually have like not necessarily top end de have decent depth that wide receiver..

"Which makes you feel a little better about the. The price is fine. But i mean he's going. He's going to basically mixed to jarvis landry speaking. We're gonna talk about jobs lane a little bit here but rather have border landry. I'd rather have void out board as well there. You go fair enough. But maybe mango maybe. Hey solved i think what i need. Gobble gobble i think one of the reasons why i was sort of using the word thinking about fade in my mind by boy do see myself. Investing in either of these next two players especially in this might not be. What many expect he higgins long against love. Kind one of the guys. This i talked. I think i've anointed a couple players as my guys so far this year brandon. Are you one of the players. I don't mean these are going to be the single best of their business but players. That i'm just super optimistic about t- higgins joins the brandon. You train of your guys of guy. I'm just. I'm in on this year. I just just I'll give it to my guys. Okay I like davante adams. Kid out of new green bay Like him a lot a thirty year player. And i believe so. I believe n. Watch for stefan digs okay in buffalo d. I s slow okay. Good to know in terms of my wide receivers. my guys. it's awesome good tweets about some favorable coverage. You're right so anyways. But i do. I do feel optimistic. About t- higgins to the point that i love t higgins. I wouldn't be surprised matter. Fact there futures on this. It wouldn't spend on me at all if he leads. The team in receiving yards touchdowns easily right. He's a phenomenal talent. I mean we had a lot of fun with it last year. I don't remember. I drafted t higgins late in the war room league. And i think like the first week i had. I had a drop in my head. I had some sort of roster issue. And i'm like rookie wide receiver and a bad team. I like him. But you know. I'll be able to get him back. And of course shefty scooped immediately up and then not only you know used him quite all year long very effectively but tortured me about it on fantasy football now every single sunday when we would have him on and talk about talk about our various teams and t higgins played very well for shefty just tortured me to see him. Go off every single. Week i love t higgins. What am i. guys this ti- higgins. I'm putting that one on record there so He had fourteen games which he finished last year. He had six plus targets in thirteen of those fourteen. Game or g averaged thirteen point. Six yards per reception wouldn't surprise me. That number goes up and we talked about this couple of days ago. I can't recall exactly who we were discussing in that regard but who's a defense focusing in on this year it's pick your poison in cincinnati. Now it may be that they're just focusing on the offensive line and just tormenting them but hoping for the best wide receivers but if if the offensive line throat cathro from your back. I feel like you just say you know what we're just going to blow them and see if he can see if he can get it off in time like what if you are playing a you know if you're playing. The browns dens award might be lining opposite up martinez and not take. So really light he higgins and right now. This is where i see the value matthew wide receiver. Thirty one in terms of adp. Right now this to me is the biggest chasm between value and my rank amongst these three bengals wide receivers. Yeah i don't disagree with that like right..
