Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.
Lamar Jackson seems to welcome Ravens potentially signing Dez Bryant
"Dez Bryant Free Agent Wide Receiver reportedly in the Baltimore area for a workout with the Ravens Lamar Jackson was asked of a possible playing with three time Pro Bowler we've got a lot of great receivers in the team right now it's up the phenomenon but seeing desperate on instagram stuff like that running his routes competing against quarterback he's looking pretty good on social media if the. Front Office Lights, and we'll have to see when he gets you Brian has made it clear intrigued by the possibility of playing with Lamar Jackson quite the fall from grace from Desmond. What star he was he's thirty one years of age. Where do you think I'm GonNa come back with the Ravens for Dez Bryant I you know I think the issue with Dez has always been. When he goes outside the system, I mean, remember this is a guy that you know the cowboys wanted to take a pay cut to let's go back. Remember I think he was making sixteen million. I could have the numbers com wrong but it's in that area and he was clearly not playing to that level. He didn't have any bursts at the top of the route. He didn't separate his hands where we're really inconsistent, which is an indication of players, loosener legs he. Didn't he's not a guy who's to line up at multiple positions and still function really well because he needs to have a kind of like he needs to be a one place he needs to have his routes. He's not as a thinker of the of the game as he plays. You know he's a slower processing player. So for me learning a new offense with this guy, you know he's worth putting on the team from an executive standpoint if I signed Dez Bryant. And he's not my starting extra my starting see what am I getting out of them so okay, let's go through it. So if I sign them to say a minimum deal, two, million dollars. So I'm on the hook for a million bucks. Okay. If he makes the team on the Saturday of the before the opening game I guarantee salary for a year I got no flexibility there. Right. He can't help me at all in the kicking game. So unless he starting playing in the three receivers set, you know then he's not going to be active. So now I'm paying millions of dollars for a guy that I'm not gonNa have active now if he can. And he's GonNa make a big difference to my team. You know we drafted two receivers one in the third one in the six you know. So those two guys gotta take a back seat. They're cheaper labor force like none of this adds up like if you told me, you want sign Antonio Brown and you WanNa take on the game suspension young. Okay. Because I promise you Antonio Brown walks onto the field. There is nobody on Baltimore steam as good as they think they are at receiver and they have good receivers. There's nobody on that football team as good as Antonio Brown but he's the best player he's the best receiver on the team, but if Dez Bryant walks in. You know is he better than Hollywood? Brown no is see better. The Miles Birkett are Chris more or Willie snead. You know they drafted the dump Rene Texas they drafted the poor kid in the sixth round. So they got two young kids that they drafted like, where does he fit and then I I'm exposed at a million like these are all things like this is called second. Order thinking like it's one thing the media makes this big deal with says, bright. Well, you know does Bryant. Five years ago was a good player does Brian today may not be a good player just because he's a named certainly has from the past that's a different story as to how could translate this season

"Visa how come no one else saw what. Why didn't everyone else see the greatness in Patrick Mahomes yeah man and I feel this one personally obviously into a small school and going through the draft process and I think a lot of times evaluators can't believe they're lying eyes and I'm not even GonNa keep this so personal? I was in San Diego when Ladainian Tomlinson was drafted number five raw from TCU and there were nothing but questions and criticisms really because because of the style of offense but more so where you went to school so it's interesting when you look at players that go to these schools what we've seen other prospects fail fail the USC quarterback all of a sudden this generalization occurs where you look at that same player not through the isolated scope of what their talent he is you start to take into other factors of. Oh but someone else from that. School wasn't good. They always put up good numbers. But I'm glad that at the Kansas City chiefs organization in unison found the opportunity and use their minds to say this guy special. This fight circumstances I agree. I think you look at the conference that he played in. And you look at the Crutch of the coaching and the play calling that he had in some of those advantages I think if they use that a lot of evaluators potentially use that as a knock against that player. They think. Well how's he going to translate and transition into the NFL or we're doing pro style. Things what is he going to do. When he's forced to play within the structure of the offense I think it's brilliant first of all that he was paired with a coach? Like Andy Reid. Because because Andy Reid maximizes so much of what a quarterback's able to do and makes that quarterbacks job easier on him. A lot of coaches want to fit quarterback to their system. But what really does very well. He tries to play to the strengths of that quarterback while also doing a lot of little things that go unnoticed on the big picture. But that really early make quarterbacks job a lot easier if there's a lot of reasons that's happened. Why does Tom Brady get drafted in the sixth round? Why does Aaron Rodgers Drop Wise Ben Rothlisberger deeper during the drafting and there were a lot of people that Patrick Mahomes and the reason Kan city did trade up is because there was another team there was going to draft him right right in that area but if it was the best player are they had ever seen ever seen? Why wouldn't they have traded up even further if there's really that conviction why didn't they wait? You have to say after so everybody is uniquely successful. There's a thousand people that knew it. We drafted Durell Rita's and after that. Everybody said well of course we knew he was going to be a hall of fame quarterback back. It's easy in retrospect to say of course we felt that way. We had this huge feeling. Why wouldn't give up everything in your draft to make sure you got that that guy you don't have you can say you don't have to but if you have that much conviction on a franchise changing quarterback you give give up whatever you need to give up to make sure that he's in the building so to say that he's the best player you ever scouted but yet you set where you said and you could have easily lost them and look for all the degree for all the geniuses? Look at look at San Francisco. Didn't they draft Solomon Thomas instead of Patrick Mahomes so there's a lot the people. This is an imperfect for perfect science so to say after the fact you had that conviction. I think it's a little bit easy. Believe what what Andy Reid is saying. There's no reason to lie here. They only defeat bread vs extra.

"Give you guys a low fat knowledge knowledge on the Super Bowl. This is the widest disparity that we've seen in the super bowl in terms of spending of two opponents. Get the forty niners from spent two hundred twenty one million dollars cap space and other things and they're in the Super Bowl and the team to spit. The least are your Kansas City chiefs. That one sixty seven and that's a small point you could spend the most it'd be here you can spend at least it'd be here. It doesn't matter at one time. The quarterback of the forty niners was the highest paid player in the NFL NFL. And they were still able to build from that roster to this roster debt is now super bowl words eat so is different ways to skin the cat. Whatever way you want a skin there are still ways you could have a roster desk constructed? That could be a super bowl opponent. Well when you look at this spending two hundred million dollars I'm better than homes. You're happy to do it and there's so many players that you're unhappy spend. We have to spend four especially in free agency contracts. We're all happy with that but the The just the crux of it is if you you have a guy like him who produces the way that he does. Eventually you're going to have to pay you're satisfied because you know what he brings the table and he's a force multiplier now from melodic standpoint paying someone. WHO's the exact same person a lot more money? Yeah it does hurt what you can do because the resources are limited but at least you're putting putting the money into someone that can they can allow you to compete for a championship every year. It's going to hurt them in building enough talent like we've seen with a bunch other teams but Pat Mahomes. uh-huh is that good. It does not matter. Pay Him whatever he wants. I give them a ten year deal. Four hundred million to spread it out over ten years. I don't know if he's a take that deal. And the just know that you're locked in your quarterback for ten years and you figure everything else out. They've drafted well recently. Too which is important part of paying someone that much money. You have to draft well and hit when guys are on the rookie contractor. Do some of their defensive players like they've done with a couple of its alignment done with Hill and Chelsea in Harmon. All of these guys home. That's special to where you have to pam first of. Aw and even if you pay them a lot of money you're not as talented. Maybe other places he can win enough games where it does not matter that special player. I certainly for pain gene chip in. But there is like this stat out there that you know. Brady's the highest paid quarterback to ever win a super bowl and that was twenty and a half million dollars and so the way to win. The Super Bowl is right now. When you have Patrick Mahomes on the cheap you've paid for very good offensive offensive tackles you were able to go out and get Frank Clark? He brought in tyrant matthew. You overpaid Anthony Hitchens They've done a Lotta a lot of paid tyreek hill. I'm not sure where there would travis tells him going to have to pay him and so I think it's the right thing to do to pay but but I do think it makes the job of being general manager and head coach more difficult after you pay for with a guy like that. He's a force multiplier. So so what I mean by. That is when one human being can affect those around in a positive way and Tom Brady is a force. multiplier doesn't matter who plays with him he he makes them better. He makes average guys. Look look good play better and Patrick's the same way. He makes his offense line look better than they necessarily are. He'll make younger occur players better because of the things that he can do. So so. That's that's a helpful component of that. What I get frustrated with is when you pay a quarterback market value which every every time we pay quarterback? We're a little bit shocked by what it is and then we talk about. We need to Toronto with weapons. Thank you can't do you can't do you. Can't have it both ways. If you WANNA be the the guy to whom much is given much is expected you need to be able to make the people around you better. And that's what he does. Different than smother high paid quarterbacks rhetorical question here here is Patrick. Mahomes better than Jimmy. Okay all right. So Jimmy Dis on a team that is to fourteen. He comes to a situation that was two or fourteen become the highest paid player the year after that six ten gets injured. Four twelve thirteen at three. They're in a super bowl. They built around him as the highest paid player player in the League. And you can do it the way that you do it like the forty niners. Do you build up the middle running backs they're cheaper full best for your. I have a good one. Let's stay on the line. A little cheaper. Don't build on outsides. cornerback wide receivers. You got an issue there. Tight ends are tied in. That's my point like so there's a way to go out there and slice it up and still take care of your MVP but also make sure you give them proper four. Four bad years in San Francisco Dad really high draft picks and then they hit on some guys in the fifth round with your kid. What a fifth rounder? They hit on some guys to in the draft they did pass on. Patrick Mahomes I have. We don't really talk about that. So yeah you you can build that way but nobody wants to go through those four years of really bad add teams to get the top. Traffic's one other wildcard and this is the new CBA which will come out eventually in a year or two right so this might be with the players. Get more money. The cat might jump. We've a new. TV deals coming up. So forty million. A year might not seem like it might seem a lot now but in a year or two. It's it's really a bargain Jeff. I've been talking to the fans ends back here. You're a force.

"Bright it has already garnered nearly two million signatures and the Greek Freak said. He thought the idea was awesome. What say we like? This is idea no really amazing. Tremendous gesture that is not going to happen. One little backstory here as the logo was created with commissioner. Walter Kennedy J Walter Kennedy and Alan Siegel who created logo. Do you know that the NBA officially it does not even say that. That is Jerry logo. Jerry West has the logo walk. Because they don't WanNa pay Jerry West simple as that they don't WanNa pay Jerry West and everyone knows in in our world icons get richer indepth than they do in life took a state of Kobe Bryant. There's going to be an issue. Issue of legalities financial reasons and concerns Jerry. West says in his nicest way. It's complicated being the logo. He he has not gained a dollar of residual from being the logo despite being the logo so now moving forward many people on record who. We're part of this creation process looking at four says what day a commissioner may change it but I don't think they're going to change it for individual. They're going to do something that respects the sport court at large but this is something that really is financially expensive it will bring in legalities more than just the tremendous gesture for tremendous mundus player is deeper than that. Would it be a good idea. Yeah and they should change. And and I'm GonNa tell you why Jerry West has been a logo for fifty years since nineteen seventy nine the players. Now they know Jerry West for two things the logo. NBA Good Gm. They don't know him from playing basketball. They don't know who Jerry in West is planned. Bats not today's player that's number one number two with today's player majorities guys grew up idolizing Koby and when you get arguably the best player League League John is say oh man that would be a good look. You have to serious only you gotta think about Tj. I understand you come in everything from a player's perspective right. The logo is really about fans. And and so it's great that the players love Blah Blah Blah and the majority of the NBA fans are young kids. That would one. Do it sucks for when somebody some negative happen with. Kobe's pass say oh. Let's do this but when you think no today's player they know of jury. SPN SPN AGM now to me. It's only fitting in ninety six. He tried to Lottie d-box.

"Good point. A real good coach is going to want to bring at least one of their coordinator. Take Back Your Brian Westbrook talking New England patriots. Who still have a little work to do? They want a first round bye. They need either a win against the dolphins this weekend or a chiefs loss to the chargers should be easy in theory. He is the Patriots crush Miami forty-three nothing earlier in the season but Brian Patriots. Absolutely need this by if they want any chance of making another super bowl. Well I think they do what they want to have a chance. I don't know that they have a huge chance. But if you WANNA have a chance you certainly need that by you. Need those home playoff games and it's because Tom Brady has has it. Been Great on the road even though these special at home and all the road game with all the home games that they've had all those super bowls that they won on the road in the playoffs. He's in four four and so when I washed his team all season long. I look at this team in the first eight Games the defensive scoring they're getting special place from the special teams. They're averaging almost thirty points a gang right then. I'll watch the last seven games. I'm watching his team. Defensively still get some big plays. You're not getting the scores. The best team still get some big plays. You're not getting as many scores that way. Thank you only score averaging twenty points a game that's a big difference and so having at home by having the ability to get element healthy. I think is going to help this team giving Tom Radiant odor quarterback a little bit of a break. You'd certainly helps football team but plane at Gillette Stadium. It's the biggest part that's going to help this patriots often. They unquestionably questionably. Need to buy all right. They've never won the super bowl without the by. They've never been to a super bowl without the by okay and that's when their offense was really good. They still couldn't get over the Hump Without that so they definitely need it now and they're playing you know. I don't think it's just a coincidence. Maybe I'm you know wear rose colored glasses but I don't think it was. Just it's a coincidence that last week now. The play offs or nearing that. Tom Brady plays better. That the running game gets on track and I think they're going to be playing their best football at the right time. I don't think they'll win the AFC picked him as a favorite. But I do give a shot. I get more of a shot. The Nick does but but they'd still need to buy no matter what and Bill Belichick is the best in the league. I don't think anybody disputes that. At preparing for the opponent fifteen and five in the regular season off off the bye week and they're going to need if they face Kansas City in the in the second round. They're gonNA need the extra time to prepare for Pat Mahomes and that's something case he has to worry about about because Belichick with two weeks to prepare is dangerous. We saw what he did to. Sean McVeigh and that's still. You still see in the repercussions from that with the Raham. So yeah they need the bye week and if they get it I think they'll be relatively dangerous. Let's think about this from a slightly different angle. If they don't get a by it means that after they finally for the first time in two months played a great football game against the bills with the division on the line in theory. They lost at home to the dolphins often to seventeen point favorites. So if they don't get the by then everyone the train that I've been writing as near Solo conductor for the last year or so that the Patriots are done and we are waiting to see the official it will be overrun with folks jumping on with no tickets. It's if they don't need to buy because it will mean it will mean Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian floors former Patriot defensive coordinators that go to my moods. I think it's an interesting wrinkle. This game went went to Foxborough and beat them in a game. They needed to have so if they don't have a by. They're drawing debt now drawing slim drawing dead not only because they have extra playoff off game but because they would've played their single worst game of the season in their game that will be set six or seven days before their playoff game with a by. I still am not a believer lever. That a team that to my I played one complete game of football. Both sides of the ball for four quarters one time in the last eight weeks is all of a sudden going to be able to do it against the two best teams in the conference. Kansas City in round one round two at home and then in Baltimore in round three now is there. A scenario where Tennessee gets. The sixth seat upsets Kansas City and so new England gets Buffalo. Houston and Tennessee goes to Baltimore. Upsets them if the Patriots Hatreds Path is the bills in the titans and both games are in Gillette. Yeah I suppose there you know what there's your one percent but a realistic path involves them having to face Kansas City again and one note on their thirty and ten in the postseason underbelly chicken Brady which is just a bananas is is fact. They've played forty playoff games. One thirty of them. They're seventeen and one against teams. They did not play in the regular season. THE ONLY TIME THEY'VE LOST LAWSUIT PLAYOFF game against the team they were facing the first time was the super bowl to nick. Foles in the eagles they are thirteen and nine which is good but not overwhelming against teams. They you're facing for a second time so one of the narratives I've heard is on the Patriots. The second time around in the postseason that has not been the case for them. If you're going to get them do need to who have faced them earlier in the year to show the giants teams that beat them in the Super Bowl. Both of them played them in the regular season. So what a Kansas City in Baltimore have in common. They played them in the regular season. Houston as well as some Houston so for all those reasons with even with a by. I'm not buying them but without a by they got no shot because it means they lost a Miami meaning game they need it and you made a great point Chris. The two weeks off is huge because it gives Bella checking opportunity scheme differently. I remember we played them in a super bowl and of course there's two weeks between the last regular season game the postseason game in the championship and the Super Bowl so we're preparing for two weeks straight to face a three four defense. Three down. Linemen four linebackers. They come out in a four three four three linebackers offensively. Your mind is blown. Because they changed everything up but in that two weeks period are you. They've done a total shift in their completely different defense so then they hadn't shown all year long. That's what whatever team that comes into Gillette. Maybe facing if they get that by. You're going to be huge. I brought this up earlier. That's a lot of that falls on bill bell check now. I mean you know that we haven't seen the best of Tom Brady. This is where we always have this debate that we've had for years and years Brady while Brady clearly fallen off this peak where he's been. GP Don't think this now maybe site you the arguments the Go-to if they win the Super Bowl with Brady forty two years old unless brady all.

"He made a good point. A real good coach is going to want to bring at least one of their coordinators backyard. Brian Westbrook talking to England patriots. Who still have a little work to do if they want a first round bye? They need either a win against the dolphins this this weekend or a chiefs loss to the chargers should be easy in theory as the Patriots. Crush Miami forty-three nothing earlier in the season but Brian Patriots. Absolutely if they want any chance of making another super bowl I think they do what they want to have a chance. I don't know that they have a huge chance. But if you WANNA have a chance you certainly need that by you.

He's been four and four and so when I watched his team all season long. I look at this team in the first eight Games the defensive scoring they're getting special place from the special teams averaging almost thirty points again right. Then I'll watch the last seven games. I'm watching his team. Defensively still get some big plays. You're you're not getting the scores. The special teams still some big plays. You're not getting as many scores that way in ostensibly only score averaging twenty points a game. That's a big difference and so having that home owned by having the ability to get adamant healthy. I think is going to help this team giving Tom Brady. An older quarterback a little bit of a break certainly helps us football team but plane at Gillette. Let Stadium it's the biggest part that's going to help this patriots often. They unquestionably need to buy all right. They've never won the super bowl without the by. They've never been to a super super bowl without the by okay and that's when their offense was really good. They still couldn't get over the Hump Without that so they definitely need it now.

The play offs or nearing that. Tom Brady plays better. That the running game gets on track and I think they're going to be playing their best football at the right time I don't think they'll win the AFC. I don't picked him as a favorite. But I do give him a shot. I get more overshot. The Nick does but they'd still need to buy no matter. What and bill check is the best in the league? I don't think anybody I dispute that at preparing for the opponent. Fifteen and five in the regular season off a bye week and they're gonNA need it if face Kansas City in the in the second round they're going going to need the extra time to prepare for Pat Mahomes and that's something case. He has to worry about because ballot check with two weeks to prepare is dangerous. We saw what he did to Sean. mcvay Hey and that's still you still see the repercussions from that with the RAM. So yeah they need to buy week and if they get it. I think they'll be relatively dangerous. Let's let's think about this from a slightly different angle. If they don't get a by it means that after they finally for the first time in two months played a great football game against against the bills with the division on the line in theory. They lost at home to the dolphins a seventeen point favorites. So if they don't get the by then everyone. AH The train that I've been writing is near Solo conductor for the last year or so that the Patriots are done and we are just waiting waiting to see the official it will be overrun with folks jumping on with no tickets. If they don't want to buy. Because it will mean it will mean Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Flora's former Patriots defensive coordinators that go to my moods. I think it's an interesting wrinkle. This game went to Foxborough and beat them in a game. They needed to have so if they don't have a by. They're they're drawing debt. Now drawing slim drawing dead not only because they have their extra playoff game but because they would've played their single worst game of the season in their game that will be set that six or seven days before their playoff game with a by. I still am not a believer that a team that to my I played one complete game of football. Both sides of the ball all for four quarters one time in the last eight weeks is all of a sudden going to be able to do it against the two best teams in the conference. Kansas City in around one around to at home and then in Baltimore in round three now Is there a scenario. Where Tennessee gets the six seat upset? Kansas City and so new England then gets Buffalo Houston and then Tennessee goes to Baltimore. Upsets them if the Patriots Path is the bills and in the titans and both games are in. Gillette is yeah I suppose there. There's your one percent but a realistic path involves them having to face Kansas City again and one note on that they're thirty and ten in the postseason under Belichick and Brady which is just a bananas. He's fact they've played forty playoff games one thirty of them. They're seventeen and one against teams. They did not play in the regular season the only time. They've lost a playoff game against the team. They were facing the first time was the super bowl to nick. Foles in the eagles they are thirteen and nine which is good but not overwhelming against teams. They are facing for a second time so one of the narrative heard is on the Patriots. The second time around in the postseason that has not been the case for them. If you're going to get them do need to have faced them earlier in the year to have shot at the giants teams that beat them in the super bowl. Both of them played lead them in the regular season. So what Kansas City in Baltimore have in common. They played them in the regular season. Houston as well if somehow they have like Houston so for all those reasons with even with the by. I'm not buying them but without by they got no shot because it means they lost the Miami game they need it with their by and you made a great point Chris. The two weeks off is huge because it gives Bella checking opportunity this game differently. I remember we played them in the Super Bowl and of course there's a two weeks between the last regular season game the postseason game in the championship and and the Super Bowl so we're preparing for two weeks straight to face a three four defense. Three down linemen four linebackers. They come out in a four three four three linebacker so offensively offensively. Your mind is blown because they changed everything up but in that two weeks period. They've done a total shift in their completely different defense. Something they hadn't shown all year long. That's what whatever team that comes into. Gillette maybe facing if they get that by. That's GONNA be huge. I brought this up earlier. That's a lot of that falls on Bill Belichick. Now I mean you know we. We haven't seen the best of Tom. Brady this is where we always have this debate that we've had for years and years brainier. Isabel check while Brady has clearly fallen off the peak where he's been if gp don't think this maybe.

"More about him than bell. Jason Garrett I Jack Mutton it's amazing Dak.. WHO's in his early twenties? Seems to have a better understanding of public negotiation. Shen than the T- than Stephen Singer Jones who are combined. I think the hundred and thirty years old he. He's got it he yet. You're damn straight and might be less game my contract you. This might be the last time you all get seizure quarterback and you could again. This is not necessarily how I feel but this is me projecting what I think dax feeling and maybe all are a a little disappointed in seven and eight. I'm disappointed seventy-three I played last five weeks. You know what was more disappointing. Quinton Carter was more disappointing. The The Oasis assist the desert of quarterbacks you went through between Troy Aikman and when Tony Romo got here that five year stretch. So yeah I mean Jason Garrett might not be here to Miss Magic Johnson. It's an I might not be here either so that to me is what Dak Prescott was saying there was not about Jason Garrett was about reminder guys I played this whole all year betting on myself and we can. We can have disagreements about quite how great I played but ultimately I got twenty six touchdowns eleven picks a passer rating in the high nineties. And I'm going to throw for. What almost five thousand yards? Throw for his throne for forty-six hundred yards at this point. All go have to pay me. Because that's how this business this works in. In in my age my position so to me Dax comment was about himself much more so than about the coat I absolutely agree with the he is is basically saying I bet on myself and that's the way it is and here's the other thing and this is what happens in football around the league. I remember I was in San Francisco and I went to the running back coach. It was like listen The wide receivers aren't blocking the way those opposed to we talked about it in meetings and say you need to talk to them talking to the running back he said listen. I'm here to farm owned land. I'm worried about about me and me only my group guys. That's what doc is saying. I'm worried about me. Jason Gird had an opportunity to come out and say something about DAX contract early in the season. I don't remember. There's him saying anything. I don't remember Jason Kerr saying hey we need to pay. Dak May show that he's taking care of at no point that anyone say anything about that. Everyone talked about Zeke and him holding you know why because that was in place he was encamped. DOC was there. Every time this franchise need someone to be. The face of the franchise. Dak has been that person now. He's saying hey it's the money thing now. I'm worried about myself. I have absolutely no problem with Dak saying those things this is why I always talk about his intangibles and him being the leader him being the adult in the room and as you mentioned maybe the adult in the organization. Okay because he said the perfect thing he didn't tie himself to Jason Garrett he didn't say Oh yeah we gotta get it done. You know. Coach is important but he didn't throw him under the bus so he he he played right in the middle. So you don't know. Is he supporting him does he want him out. And he shouldn't be that guy you know. And then when he says I'm on the last game of my contract to I felt like he was kind of saying what's that's it from it is it. It came off like understanding I. They've been great myself. y'All come and we know what Jason's going through I know the criticisms he he's getting and I myself had been that great you know. I'm on the same situation I maybe I won't get a contract. So I thought he came off as as rightly a little itself deprecating and I think it will play well with people that see that quo again. I thought he handled it perfect. Here's why I don't think it's the worst thing in the world of the cowboys lose this weekend. The team needs a lot of changes to be made this off season for a team. That's actually very healthy and have most of their pieces in place. There's going to be a head coaching change. They're going to have to pay either. Dak Or Amari your franchise one one of them. There's going to be a couple of moving pieces because not everyone can stay if you if you. I think it's time for this team to look in the mirror and say what are we doing like who are we going to be the next couple of years. What changes I just think? This team is going to need to address right away neck while they're for all intents and purposes. It's going to be the same team that we saw this year on the field with a few less talented players want the cowboy fans. Tell me all the time. You don't understand our contracts. We've got all our linemen under contract we've got yet. No Oh I do understand but I also understand the way it's going to work when you're quarterback's contract goes from two and a half million dollars to north of twenty five or thirty five million dollars you are all of a sudden going to have to make some have some hard conversations and have some real hard negotiations of your either taking a pay cut or we are going to release you even with two years left on your deal which is what so I think. The only systemic change is going to be coaching staff and it might be total overall. The coaching staff potentially on both sides sides of the ball. I Dunno if they elevate Chris Rashard or I don't know if they depending on what coach they bring in very often. Those guys want to bring in their entire staff themselves but the reason Brian this year is such a missed opportunity for the cowboys as it is very hard to figure a way. They will be more talented next year than they were this this year because this was the final year of the Little Cheat Code you have in the modern. NFL which is more than competent. If Not Star quarterback who is is making the less money than a great punter in this league. which is the situation thought when Seattle's in this situation not just rookie quarterback rookie Andre quarterback but mid round rookie contract quarterback? What did they do with it? They won the Super Bowl and came a yard away from one another one. What's Dallas going down with it? We made the divisional round twice. And so that's to me the bigger disappointment of the years. I've no reason to believe the team is. I don't think they can overhaul the roster. They can only overhaul the coaching instead. The biggest change that they're gonNA MAKE GONNA be too. Of course. The head coach is going to set the culture in character. The Locker Room in that football team in they certainly need a different shift in their coaching character. The second one is offense coordinator in a reason why I say that is. Because what are you going to do. Zeke was going to be the highest one of the best highest pay running backs in the league and then back. Does this office continue. I used to be in office. is going to run the Ball twenty-five Thirty Times a game or you're going to be office leans a little bit more on the quarterback similar to what they did early in the season. That's the biggest question and concern for this team. How does this offense play in the years? Moving forward do you get a guy like Lincoln Riley and Riley now has big time offense that can move the ball up and down the field throwing the football or do you get a guy more conservative that wants to run the football Rhonda. There wants to run it. Take the air out of the ball and play great defense. That's the biggest question. Because you'RE GONNA be you're going to have to pay Some point at some point you're going to have the franchise him or make him one of the highest payed quarterbacks in the league. He's going to be highest paid quarterback he's going to be you have already one of the highest paid running backs. Both of these guys are gonNA have to eat. Do you pay this guy to hand the ball off or do you pay him to throw the ball down the field. That's the big question for the S. The heck of the question you brought it we all no. No they gotta get rid of Jason Gear. Okay but most coaches I would think the top coaches. They're gonNA WANNA have a lot of say their staff right. And so what is jade. Ah Kelly Moore was the golden boy. This is his first year. He's young. It's hard for me to see them getting rid of him. You know I mean I. You won't be shot because again if Jerry just changes course and says look I'm GonNa like he did with bill parcells. We know it didn't work out but you go get a coach that you're going and let run everything. They're probably going to want to bring in a lot of their own staff if not an entire new staff and that's where it'll be interesting to see though what they do with Kalam more because he was supposed to change the offense up and he did and obviously it didn't work out so but that's that's the major change they need to make otherwise look. You've said it in mislead. Coaching is more important. The any other major sport so if they bring in the right coach I think with this roster healthy they can win it'd be a factor in NFC NFC..

"And just going out to work you know we ought to work it out for us against a good opponent on the road And obviously if we win we're in so we know what's at stake. There is a lot at stake. Take for both of these organizations and nick. I'll start with you. Who Do you have more confidence in though the eagles or the cowboys heading into this weekend I don't know why anyone would have any level of confidence in Dallas whatsoever? They their season was on the line five days ago and they played offensively one of their worst games of the year defensively. They only allowed seventeen points but they allowed Carson Wentz to have one of his most efficient productive games of the year a team that had been in Philadelphia turning the ball over throughout the season. The cowboys were unable to force any turnovers in that football game. So why am I supposed to believe the Dallas. The now in week seventeen now they flip the switch now. They're a great football team philly on the other hand we have on. We've treated some Philly wins better than we've treated to me some Dallas or worse than we've treated some Dallas Losses Phil Dallas started out three and owned look like an excellent team phillies started out one and two and looked. Like what the Hell's wrong with them. Since then these two teams have gone in very divergent directions philly since then seven and five live and four of those five losses are to quality opponents the one bat including New England Seattle Minnesota. The one bad loss is the one that glaring to Miami from. Ah just now three three weeks ago which are a month ago. I guess which then led to the giants game which was an ugly when the washing name which was an ugly when leading into the Dallas. Game name I I believe that Philadelphia has righted itself to a degree over the last month football by finding ways to beat the giants in Washington by dominating the Dallas Cowboys Dallas. Meanwhile after that three and start what are they on the year. Oh so they're four and eight in their next twelve games. If you go four and eight over twelve football games you absolutely could lose to a Washington team. That the first time they played them one touchdown game going into the fourth quarter order against this same quarterback by the case keenum who in that game had a one zero five quarterback rating played. Well played relatively well so to speak. And so I live far more confidence in Philadelphia this weekend against the giants then Dallas against Washington. I actually have more confidence in Dallas. And I'm GonNa tell you. I think one thing we can agree on is that Dallas is. The more talented team is originally with injuries. We injuries okay. So they're the most talented team secondly Dak Prescott last last week. Obviously he was injured and you saw it in some of his passes and I think he learned from that experience. I think this week. We know he's not really throwing the ball in practice this week but I think having played last week through the injury is going to help him play through it this week and I think you'll be smarter. I think it'd be better throws I think you'll make better decisions decisions knowing how to play with that injury so I think those are two factors in the cowboys. Favor also Amari Cooper. He did not show up last last week. He did not show up against New England. And now there's talk about is even a Gamer. People are wondering not just from this year but even looking at some would've passed as he wants that be contract so I think he knows he has to show up and play well and then you mentioned Washington. What is what is Washington playing for or they don't they have the way Haskins playing and you got the young quarterback who season's over we want him to look good continues to do his best right? I'm not even sure they wanted to win. It's best if they lose for their draft positions so those factors combined. It's not like I expect Dallas to necessarily come now and be the team. We've all thought they could be going into the season. But I think they'll play well and I think Washington has nothing to play for on the other side. I think the giants even season's over to you do have the young quarterback in every time he's out there Daniel Jones. You want him to play. Well Pat Shurmur. Shurmur was coaching for his job. Okay that's the thing is his job on the line. I think some of these players now. Reportedly you see the close granted. They're saying what they need to say. But I think they like certainly Jones Joe's which passed like this guy that drafted me. This is the guy that gave me the starting position over a legend three games into the season so he probably wants Shurmur to stay rather than have to learn a whole new system under a new staff so I just think that the giants not to mention they all most beat the eagles a few weeks ago so I think that the giants have a good chance of beating. The Eagles and certain Dallas will be washing. So let's focus on these two guys. Who Do you trust? More between then Dak was clearly suffered with this shoulder injury even though he says he's fine he's not practicing during the week or Carson Wentz. who only in the last last three weeks against mediocre teams come into two thousand Seventeen Carson? Wentz who do you trust more. It's going to take the organization on their back head into this weekend and win again absolutely we trust Carson once more and deck deck shoulder. Injury does not explain. The last five weeks of football might explain. Last week of football were deck wasn't terrible and I WANNA act like he was terrible but obviously the cowboys didn't score a touchdown but decks. I ten weeks. The team was six and four. He had twenty one touchdowns nine picks a one four rating and was averaging three hundred and twenty yards passing per game. He was not an MVP front runner but on that second tier of MVP candidates. After those I ten weeks after the team's record was better he probably would have been a top three. MVP candidate the last five weeks there. One in four. He's averaging fewer than three hundred yards passing MM per game. He has five touchdowns toothpicks and his passer rating has dropped to eighty five. That is not all because he played one game with a bad shoulder. It is because in the most critical stretch which of their season. When they're scheduled the toughest Dak played his worst football carson on the other hand now they're scheduled a softened up at the end of the year granted but in the most critical stretch of the season he was a damn near perfect in the fourth? Quarter the giants same thing in the fourth quarter against Washington those fourth quarter and overtime combined for four touchdowns towns. I believe and then in the cowboys game as I mentioned I believe played his best game of the year and even that dolphins game prior to it can't be put on winter shoulders because they scored plenty linnea points in that game. That was a defensive meltdown against Ryan Fitzpatrick and the dolphins so far more confidence in Carson and one other point Chris Anchors would you think of this Dacca's acas played this whole year without a contract. Now you are this close to the finish line of as long as I don't suffer a significant injury I I'm getting over one hundred thirty million dollars. We don't we're gonNA argue about the spread. How much does that creep into his mind? As far as if he does need to run the ball. Oh for a first down if he doesn't want to get rid of the ball early when he's been rolling these you know he's been spending this roulette wheel so to speak repeatedly this year and now he's got one more spin left before he could possibly lose. I wonder if that affects how he plays this week. I don't think that'll be any different because it's been that way all year. What if he got injured badly the in game seven sure you know it would have been the same thing so I don't think he's worried about that? I do think again. I always talk about his intangibles his leadership. I do think he'll come out and play the typical game. He's been playing now. That does have to be better than he's played the last five weeks and Carson has been better over the last month. There's no doubt about and maybe you do have more faith in him playing a better game than debt. Here's the thing Carson has to be great when you look at his supporting cast of receivers Zach Earth's his favorite target may not be there the running game you know. They've run the ball well. Eagles defence over the hotel season has not been great right so so he has to be spectacular for them to win. Even though it's just the giants whereas with Zeke Elliott Tony Pollard has his moments. You know the receiving core the defense I just think he has. He doesn't have to be great for them to win whereas wits certainly has to be great within the with with with the injuries. All Right Brian Westbrook.

"You're saying that you want more out of him to make up the draft. Do you think the Jaguars are gonna get more out of him? No, I wanna make I want more out of them. Based on the fact that the Browns traded him in the middle of the season. I became a fantasy irrelevant. All of a sudden. Oh, yeah. That's terrible. But I see where you're coming from obviously since we disagree on it. I think it's kind of a interesting situation to go into with the with one week left in the regular season. We let the listeners to side, and they'll they'll know who to role within us. Vexed one Josh Reynolds. And the Rams I thought Reynolds ownership would be way higher. So obviously the wrenches came off a bye. He replaced Cooper Cup. Not exactly, but he's really kind of filled. A lot of the volume that copy use to occupy. They're also using Robert woods in the slot to. So a lot of usage has flipped around. But the lions have no Cornerbacks dairy sleighs, very good the people after dairy slayer, very bad. If you want to know more about that ask any lines fan. They're terrible. And this is just a really great matchup, obviously like they just came off that chiefs game. But Reynolds says has been crushing it every time he's been able to start. I don't see why this would be any different because the lines are so depleted whether he can just keep tropic touchdowns every week after this. I dunno laughs. But I mean, I love him so far I think he's a fantastic option, especially if he's still sitting on your waivers somehow. Yeah, I'm in on him to this week next guy. This is another situation where you get to kind of decide between a few different players Michael Crabtree. John Brown Willie Snead of the ravens gone up against the falcons. Week who obviously has a bad pass defense and gives up a ton of points to two receivers. They give the eighth most fantasy points per game two receivers this year. But I'm just like again, I'm I'm worried about the lack of volume in this passing offense with Mark Jackson under center, I think it Jackson's looking like he's slated to start again this week in the last two games that he started. He's obviously changed their offense completely made it into a very very run heavy scheme. He has thirteen can he had thirteen completions? In his first start fourteen insights are so there's very few passes to go around in those two games at total of three hundred twenty eight yards and one touchdown through the air. So like. It makes me worried was all three of these guys. I think if I'm gonna go into anybody. It's almost like sort of aspects. But I would still go with Willie Snead. Even though he had incomplete goose egg last week. I think it's more of a dart throw to go with crasher Brown. I dunno Lamar is playing so obviously the more Jackson's playing this week after that maybe it's a quarterback competition. But I think the moral continue to play. I we have played any of these guys as long as the more Jackson's blind. And I love Lamar Jackson. But I don't love what he means. You're passing. I would not play. Any Baltimore anybody in the Baltimore passing attack as long as more starting just? Yeah, we have no idea. What's going to happen? Who would have thought the only starter will player in the Baltimore Ravens in week? Thirteen is a guy named Gus Edwards? Gus the bus the U-Haul. Yeah. No one's calling the U haul, bro. It's gust the bus stop trying to make the U haul happen. We're into people who are upset about the drone beddis thing was less than anybody thought about your own beddis still. I'm sure he's made. That'd be like if you call. A basketball player like air Johnson. You just can't do that. There's Air Jordan hand do that. Perfect example now discuss the bus all right, next one courtroom Sutton. I think this is where I think which is cut bait Sutton on paper. This is an amazing match up. They're going to the Bengals the bagels are just absolute dumpster trash. I mean, they had that stretch verbally give five hundred yards every week for three weeks row which had never happened before. They also just got shredded by the the Browns and on paper. This is great. We love case keenum's streamer. But basically comes down to this for me. Here are Sutton's lines on the.

"But they really haven't done it all too well or successfully seasons past weapons, Michael Crabtree of courses. Quite the talent John Brown has done well that a sluggish November. But as far as you know, the earlier in the season he was dynamic scoring touchdowns and deep passes were getting his way Willie Snead has been a great chain mover for the ravens at believe. The falcons fans are all too familiar with Willie Snead. And what he's capable of doing is doing just the same thing with the ravens as he was doing years pass with the saints. It's been it's been really good to be able to watch him see three NFL capable receivers on the ravens roster for the first time in feels like years since twenty twelve is really what it's like. Or when Steve Smith was with the ravens, and he was producing they had one or two other players with him. But these are all three NFL starting receivers now on the roster and is boosted the ravens offense and in their play tremendously. You know in in against the Bank. Nls. They actually throw in fit on the sidelines and wasn't people. You know, criticize and call that being a diva they were wanting the football Lamade ran for over twenty twenty attempts and the passes going their way through a total of nineteen passes rush twenty seven attempts and they're getting upset because they knew they could beat the players in front of them. But they weren't given the opportunities. And so that's what they changed up against the raiders in the next week. So they got some got some weapons, right? It's a can be a lot to watch out for. So with that our final segment before we get into our game predictions little thing, we like to do we call out one player from either team that we think fans need to watch out four on Sunday that can have a big difference on the outcome of this game. So Gina start with you. Who's the one player the fans need to watch out for on Sunday? Well, let's see. I mean, it's. Hard for me to pick one player. Just because I think what I wanna focus on us the offense of line. I mean, I do think that Atlanta's ability to succeed in this one is going to depend on keeping Matt Ryan upright, and you know, not looking like complete idiots when they try to run the ball. And so again, like, I don't have a great deal of optimism about that. But I do think that if the offense of line could just play adequate football that it would go a lot more smoothly for Lanta. So I'm gonna cheat and pick five players, and it's those five also. Kyle who's the one name when player fans need to watch out four on Sunday. Well, if gene is going to pick five pick to like, that's. You said one player, and then she's like, you know, what I'm gonna go five times that. That I can't be box. I can't be bossed. Don't Bosniak Canada. I'm on buffalo. Can also be with one offense. One defense feel that spectacle in reasonable on like picks, we can roll with with that. Offense with Gus Edwards was an undrafted free agent. This year, he's a rookie. And I remember watching him in training camp. And he looked like the third best held back on the roster. Alex Collins looked incredible. And he came in slim came in quick and his agility was great in training camp. This guy going to go for ten thousand yards ten touchdowns, but the run game at that point was not successful. And you didn't have Joe flacco beside the Lamar Jackson drawing attention away. So edwards. Was that guy that he was he's a big player? He runs north-south, and you still has some loose elusiveness toolman in his game in it's made them really dynamic and exciting to watch especially when he's playing next to Lamar Jackson. So that's been my folks on the offense watch for him. If the run defense of the falcons is not up to par. He will probably get his third straight game of a hundred yards rushing. And that's something ravens fan. Look. Forward on the defensive side of the ball. A mentioned earlier, I believe Michael Pierce is going to have a big game. You talked about the struggles of the offense of line the five players Gina picked. I think Michael Pierce will be the guy to to perform..

"There's there's a limited ceiling yet. Like, if you're swinging for the fences, you prefer trae Kwan Smith, or you know, there's a couple of other guys that you know, maybe have much higher upside. But there are certainly a floor with Willie Snead who has at least seven targets now in seven straight games. That ravens offense is always sort of targeted the slot. A guy that I actually have higher than Willie Snead on my personal ranks in terms of way wires this week. But makes your list as well is a rookie from Carolina DJ more who's one of many wide receivers. We don't have the time to go through the whole list. But the last four games has got twenty one targets which was the same number as Devon function. He had five targets for the fifth time in his past six games this past weekend against the Detroit Lions they have a great schedule during the fantasy playoff TJ more this trust the talent ad for the first round pick out of Maryland. Yeah. I mean, so certainly certainly the pedigree is there and we've seen the production inconsistently, but we have seen it there. I actually prefer him to Willie Reed Willie Snead I should say. Say or Willis Reed to be honest. I would think so. Yeah. Yeah. Willis reads fantasy value is not as not not what it once was. But DJ more, especially by the way, when you look at Carolina schedule coming up, not just you know, starting with this week at home against Seattle, but just throughout the rest of the fantasy playoffs. Like, it's a really nice schedule for the entire Carolina Panthers. Especially the passing offense and one last guy. I just want to mention real quickly feel that would be my number one guy actually this week is KiKi Cutie with five or more catches in three or five games. Five or more targets and four of five games last week had a thirty seven percent target. Sure. I think the expectation was with the Maria's Thomas coming in. He would sorta take away. But that's not been the case. And I don't know if anyone was watching fantasy will now on Sunday. But Dan Graziano was reporting from that Redskin Texans game, and he talked about he's like when you talk to Texans coaches about KiKi Cutie like their eyes light up. I'm paraphrasing here a little bit. But just you know, they talked about like he's more speed. And they realized they wanna do different things they keep trying to figure out different ways. And there's clearly a connection with Shawn Watson as well. L? So honestly, I think he can Cutie has carved out a significant role for himself in that Texans often..

There's the Rams guys if you wanna stash them at your own risk, Johnny Smith. Dave mentioned he has thirty three to forty five yards in each of his last three games with two touchdown NPR fancy points or more in each of his last three that's since the by week. And I think that Houston is terrible against titans that true. Well, they're they're great against the run, and they'll be dominant against Blaine gabbert. So I think you're hoping that John Smith catches four or five passes just keeps that trend. Go down there, pretty bad. They gave up that big game at Jordan. Jeff Hier, Jeff ironman and read both had seven more catches seventy one or more yards and touchdown in the last two games against the Texans. And just to go full circle on the Rams tight ends last three games. Gerald Everett nine nine nineteen and PR Tyler be six eleven twelve and PR. DS's with like the patriots Redskins. Cowboys bills bills our favorite Jamie's got the patriots won. But it seems like David heath like the bills more. I like the colts the bills man careful with the colts. Because I know they were great last week. But they face Blaine gabbert, they were terrible the two previous games at Oakland and home against Jacksonville, which are streaming matchups and they were dreadful. Yeah. This is another one though against Miami. And I think they're starting to find themselves and they're getting healthier too. Okay. And if you wanna stash for your for your playoff run the Redskins there eighty two percent own. So that's tough titans. Are seventy two percent. Oh, and they both have good playoff schedules. And the patriots do too for that matter cluding buffalo in week sixteen. What do you think about the eagles against the giants? Not with their secondary in tatters. Tiny fair band, Barron. Dan Bailey Matt Bryant, Josh lambo kickers to add. And that's pretty much it for today's show. I'll read a couple of emails real quick, Matt from Wisconsin. I need a tight end this week. Austin Hooper, Jordan Reed cow off Yuzawa Orna Joko Hooper, read Rudolph Zometa Joko. I'll take read who prefer heath read for Dave. Okay. And Fred and Jacksonville, your Blake blamed and Brian. Those are all starting quarterbacks. No, there's no Brian starting quarterback. I wondering if that was supposed to be that was supposed to be Byron. Those are supposed to be Jaguars quarterbacks left which gap burger no starting quarterbacks named Brian right now. There's at least one backup we need to get some Brian's in the league many Matt's. Right. Stupid name. Question about a kicker, Justin Tucker or Josh lambo? Tucker Tucker, I feel that we cannot end the show on a kicker Email. I don't know why even like we've spent entirely too much time on kickers. You're right. From Marty in a small town in southern Virginia. Roanoke..

"So I understand this fantasy football podcast is much more grave serious matter, but as ties to his status and his availability for this year, it would appear that Leshan McCoy's going to play as long as he is healthy. This season going on to the to the ravens who are a little bit better offense. It wasn't the prettiest day, but are you nervous Matthew, if you saw Alex Collins, seven Russia's for thirteen yards and just one touchdown. No, I mean, they they got up so big field. You know, when this game was within fourteen points and it wasn't within fourteen points very long. I mean the the ravens just crushed him. But cows got fifteen of the twenty five Rb snaps it got four of the five touches again when this game was within four. Touch. He's their lead guy. The fumble was bad, and by the way that is, that is a hallmark that is the one negative outs cons throughout his career, whether it was in college or earlier in his NFL career was the fumbles. That's always been an issue for him, but I think he's the lead back. And I think this was one of those things where the game got out of hand and got out of hand quickly. So they wanted to get some run to buckle and Kenneth Dixon for the ravens elsewhere. John Brown, Matthew had a strong preseason. It showed up on Sunday with three catches for four yards and a touchdown to see the ravens wide receiver because Willie Snead also found the end zone yesterday four catches for forty nine yards which if you had the one of them to roster going forward, which might be, I think I'd prefer John Brown. Okay. Willie sees is going to be a thing. I mean, he's, he's the number three wide receiver is going to play out of the slot though, and we know flacco does like to go to the slot. But John Brown has been a rave throughout training camp here mentioned on fantasy people. Now I have a lot of out of a lot of drawn Brown on various teams of mine as well. There's a connection there. Him and flacco Jim Brown's, finally healthy to find now. I mean, this is what we've been wanting to see. We saw the flash of that when he made his debut and then he's struggled over Cincinnati Zona. Now we're seeing the healthy John Brown again. I think among wide receivers without looking at the, you know, field the way of our common look forward to reading that tomorrow spent calm. But my suspicion is that John Brown, who heading into like at whatever. Whenever we talked about him on the show, he was at eighty percent availability yet. Yes. Yes. Not because I'm going with the higher upside player. Offense that I still think is not going to be as good as it wasn't a passing game yesterday. Is there a wide receiver higher on your list and John Brown that you would want to roster from free agents? For me, Ryan grant is up there little bit higher for me, and I'm going to probably take my pick between a bucks wide receiver going forward. Interesting. I think I think John Brennan would number one, the chiefs ends to chance to get on our high horse right now. Tyreek hill one of three players with forty two point, three fantasy points yesterday yet. Receiving touchdown, two of those actually in the adver touchdown, he was ridiculous. Like we stay with Alvin Kamara so much for regression, Hamath you. I mean he's just a special player. He's just a ridiculous ridiculous player in entire kale. And I don't know that he's always going to be as efficient as he was seven. One sixty nine on eight targets touchdown the he also returns returns a punt for a touchdown. I mean, this is what tyreek hill is you? You know, I I had him as a top ten wide receiver. This is why. I mean, he's a. Player and and got a go ahead, go on..
