"Extension has not participated in eighteen drills off season as the talks continue he attended otas and minicamp in training camp participated in meetings and individual drills but has not done any hitting while waiting for the contract extension to get finalized Mike tomlin steelers head coach. This quote. i remain optimistic that something's going to get done from a deal. Perspective that aside. I'm expecting him to practice tomorrow. that was from labor day talking about today. I'm proceeding with the assumption that he's going to practice tomorrow. That's kind of the approach i'm taking. He's missing time due to obvious reasons. But like i've also mentioned over the course of his of this team development process. I'm focusing very little on those. Who aren't working for whatever reason Not working. I tend to focus my energy on those who are so. The bengals have their own issue with jesse bates and the steelers have. There's with tj watt so That is as that. We'll see we'll see if the sort of arms race there in which team gets Dies sign i if at all and then of course overall the steelers have a clean bill of health her behind the steel curtain heading into week one against the bills which is a very very tough match-up initially so They need to be as healthy as possible. This this this is gonna be a tough one for him. So they they play steph onto it assaulted defensive lineman anthony mcfarland junior and zach banner on injured reserve. The steelers were hopeful to have everyone who was on the fifty three man roster healthy available to play in buffalo sunday so they are in pretty good shape overall. I think also. I mean the bengals have had their share of injuries there. They're in decent shape in terms of injuries at this point. Yeah trey wayne's josephus side those hurt but there were other times when i mean it was you know just gino atkins last year. Aj green the year. Before the i me it's just a mess so that's It's seems like pittsburgh's going into buffalo in good shape with everything there now. We're going to transition quickly to the nfl news. This is going long but we've got. We've had a lot to get to in a lot to talk about. This is the minnesota vikings and they released their week one unofficial depth chart. So i will share this here. Let's go down here. of course. The starters kirk cousins callum on the rookie is the backup running back. Alvin cook and madison is the backup there. Cj ham is the fullback wide receivers adam theline jefferson justin jefferson k j. Osborne amir smith are set the rookie there and dede westbrook a guy that maybe some people thought would be signing with the bengals at some point did not In free agency. So that's where things are their offensive skill positions. Let's go down to tight antilock. Conkland is their starter with the backups. Brand and dylan chris. Hurn ben elephants. They went pretty heavy at tight end. Light running back tackles reshad hill brian. O'neill dare saw in brandel dare has been dealing with some some injuries stuff. I believe So look i had someone. You guys were Asking me a little bit of. What do i make of the vikings in you know what what's going on that you see reshad hills getting a start over. Dare saw left tackle brian. O'neill blake brand also rashaad hill from what i understand. There's there's been some issues but He's capable it's it is i mean. Look that's that's a high pick for them to dare sauce sitting on the bench. So i mean they're having their issues to as cleveland was a guy i liked He's the starter at left guard. Bradberry was another guy liked recently And then only yudo. I looked up. tim up a little bit and just seen what guys and gals covering the minnesota. Vikings said about him he was a guy that kinda had been struggling a little bit in and all kinds of different things and then all of a sudden this year and he has looked like a completely different player and kind of ran without right guard starting spot and you see why it davis was another guy we you know. We all liked as well. The draft process talked about a lot. So you just kind of took it and ran with it so there are some names on here. The tackles the starting tackles are definitely lesser. Known brian o'neill in rashad hill. But they're interior cleveland bradberry. Yudo our names. It should be somewhat familiar. Yudo again was a guy that would you know there. A lot of huge expectations for him but he has played from my understanding pretty well in training camp for minnesota and took over that that spot there so On defense you've got daniel hunter Dj want him weatherly they resigned everson griffin and then they drafted patrick jones this year so griffin in there A guy that they had us out there laughed in the game. He kind of had some not-so-flattering words with For kirk cousins in terms of his play months ago the now he comes back so it's all interesting that works out. Michael pierced alvin tomlinson And then they've got sheldon richardson as a backup defensive tackle on this team and then you've got old friend nick vigil starting at linebacker Obviously some familiarity there with or at least there is there are traits. There that Mike zimmer likes out of out of vigil and so you've got. Anthony barr and eric hendricks guys who have been very good for a number of years at linebacker spots and then vigil. You've got blake lynch troy die another Another guy that was on and off the bengals roster for awhile. Chaz surat ryan connolly And then you've got the corners. Patrick peterson ba- freeland. Mackenzie alexander back with minnesota. After being in cincinnati last year kris boyd harrison hand cham dance ler On on the team here. so Harrismith xavier woods. Josh medalists and cameron bynum as the safety so a lot of familiar names. And that's kind of to be expected a little bit. With the mike zimmer connection but that's kind of a little bit of what the minnesota vikings depth chart in their starters and whatnot will look like on sunday as they take on the cincinnati bengals. There are some weaknesses on that offensive line to answer one of those questions that we received earlier in terms of minnesota by. There are some vulnerabilities. But it's not something that you know. It's like a complete total weakness. They have spent a lot of draft capital and sometimes to no avail to try and fix that offensive line. and so they're they're rolling with that christian. Dera saw their hypoc not suiting up at least at this point as a starter. So we'll see what happens there but it seems as if there are some areas particularly potentially the tackles that could be exploited if trey hendrickson ends up playing while if hodgson's up being more than just a preseason hero if sam hubbard gets in there and continues to play well we'll see we've got kind of a an interesting. I dunno funny. Panic quote from tom brady. He's still upset with the quote. Barry pointless jersey number changes The forty four year old On nfl dot.
"anthony mcfarland" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"To get him and then they let him go. I thought they traded him to. Miami differ nothing. Is this for dirt. Yeah and Anthony mcfarland running back for the pittsburgh steelers could be placed on i r might be the short-term i are but that is worth mentioning tyronn. Johnson from the chargers was cut so third round. Pick joshua palmer becau- joshua very interesting. Yes joshua palmer is not a player armed drafting. Because i just i don't i don't see a world where palmer comes in week. One year like holy crap. It's joshua palmer but third round pick that's that is excellent draft capital e. for a player He didn't have huge college production but he has a the opportunity. Is there now austin. Echo was on this show and he brought up the name of josh palmer so he somewhat to Just just move. That thought to the back of your bright. I think he is a guy that you're willing to drive. Yeah i think he could be one of those week one stars that you didn't see coming i i'm more interested in him than i'm interested in brian edwards right now so i if he if he mike williams can't stay healthy and even when he was healthy last year. You had big games from time and johnson. Big games from jalen guidon. So josh palmer is very intriguing. Because they're going to throw the football and cunanan has a specific type of role in this offense. Sure so i am more intrigued than you And more intriguing than you as a person. Just more intriguing in general especially after that opening story right. Yeah people were very into that. I'm just so sorry that you had to bear that burden yourself when you're going through it.

"anthony mcfarland" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"That i'm responsible for every day that the steelers practice where there's updates especially when there's fans in the stands we get so much more updates just because the reporters are allowed to say more than i then put a tracker. I put the the show in from steelers live that kicks off training camp. It's in the article whenever training camp practices done and they have their wrap up show. That goes at the end on putting all kinds of information in tweets in this article. Too basically where it could be your one stop shop for practice that day where you could go in and see exactly what's going on. I updated every few minutes on. It's a lot of work to stay on top of it. But i do it for you all and then also we turn around and give you this podcast as well for those people that are that listening on the podcast side but might not check out the website so we have all the information that we can get and today was a very interesting when it came to information. So i'll get to that. But i will say that. The steelers were back and surprisingly in pads. Today i know jeff said on yesterday's recap that he assumed that that was probably the last day in pads for the steelers but they were out there in pads again today. And if. I were to estimate why. I think that happened. It's because the steelers are trying to emulate an actual week. Even though the is on thursday and not the typical sunday and that is the came off there off on sunday. They went padded practice padded practice. Monday and tuesday tomorrow. Wednesday is what will soon as a non padded practice and it's not open to the public and then the steelers will travel to canton to be ready for the game. I'm pretty sure they are going to travel on. Wednesday and thursday have not seen an official report. But that's generally the the way things work in the nfl and with it being a night game they might do a walk through that morning or something so in order to try to make sure that players are figuring how to how a game would work a game leak would be. I think that's why they went with back-to-back padded practices. Now jeff will be back for the next recap. It's probably not going to be until saturday. Because like i said it's practices not open to the public wednesday thursday the hall of fame game fridays off day. I'm fairly certain. It will be back on saturday unless something changes with that schedule but it was very interesting today because there was not a lot of reports coming at the beginning of practice when the steelers took the field at approximately one thirty this afternoon and that was because art rooney the second was speaking to a group of the media at that time so therefore a lot of the reporters who would generally be telling us. Who's practicing who's not draft things of that nature. It took a while until that information started to come out because these reporters were still in in an interview with team. President art rooney. The second mike. Thomas had done his interview already. He did his typical tomlin tuesday at noon. A regular sit down press conference. That was really nice to see in here. And we have information on that at not only at behind the soccer curtain dot com but also the the post what i'd say the press conference wrap up or or however you wanna say i can't remember how it's phrased that jeff did earlier on our podcast platform. Hopefully you've already checked that out. But as they got doing with practice today it was. It was very interesting to see who wasn't wasn't practicing i. The steelers added a player to their roster. Just before practice it was announced. And that was running back. Tony brooks james if that means sounds familiar. It's because he spent time with the steelers in two thousand nineteen he appeared in three games had a handful of carries. I think it was seven carries for eight yards. Something like that. If i recall from reading that article earlier today he also ran ran back. Two kickoffs He was just three games with the steelers and then he was off again but he he was released last week by the atlanta falcons. So they brought him in and part of the reason that he was brought in might have been because for the second straight day. No benny snell. Not even that he was out there getting work in. But just wasn't you know fully dressed. He was not seen on the field for the last two days. Additionally neither was anthony mcfarland junior who apparently came up a little bit limp at the end of practice on monday so it makes sense that they might have brought in another running back. And then we're going to hear a little bit more about the running back situation as we progress through this other players that were not dressing once again. T. j. watt was doing his normal whatever. He's been doing where he's been working outta practicing at practice. But not actually practicing. With the team eric hebron once again missed practice. Zach gentry and ray ray mc lap. Sorry ray ray mcleod were also not practicing but on the on the good news zack. Banner was in pads again today and he did start off and the seven shots according to rafit a powder of the of the pittsburgh post gazette who said zach banners lining up at right tackle for seven shots. Dan more still at left tackle to that. Was the report coming out It's kind of funny because one tweet. I came across today. That that i actually got a kick out of was mark. Kabali says. let me describe a training camp practice for you. Drill drill drill stretch drill drill drill seven shots drills football plays drill drill drill that was remarkably of the atlantic. I got a kick out of that because it sounds like. That's really how things are going. The very first play of seven shots. That is as jeff said. Many times with offense gets seven. Tries from the two yard line. Defense is lineup to stop them. It's basically a two point conversion and it's who can win the most on the very first one unfortunately ben rothlisberger through an interception. Who did he throw to none other than outside linebacker. Alex highsmith okay. Then this starting offense bounces back with two touchdowns from ben rothlisberger after that wanted chianti johnson and wanna pat fair youth k There was conflicting reports on whether or not mason rudolph unit was one for two are over to some said. It was one for two sums. It was over two. And that's gonna make a big difference on who won seven shots the offense the defense but just had some conflicting reports there. but were they. What were the word. Conflicting reports was dwayne haskins. Had the last two shots and they went one for two with the final play being an interception by undrafted free agent market gilbert to finish up seven shots so according to most that was that the defense when the seven shots Still didn't get exact clarity on on the rudolf situations Bryan back. Go another one from the pittsburgh post gazette. He he said on twitter chase clayton. We'll just loves owning guys in one on one drills the other day he pancake justin lane at a blocking period. Now he just put traynor norwood on the ground with a stiff arm..

"Candidate might say. I'm never putting an offensive lineman unless we're in a goal line shore yard situation. You will never see an extra tackle on the field. Okay that's great. But if dan moore is gonna be quality depth there is he going to be another guy. That's gonna be inactive every week and they're gonna keep him on the roster because they wanna see what he can do. I don't know that he's going to get a lot of playing time on thursday night so keep an eye out for big in. That is his nickname. Not not dan. Mccullers big dan moore junior. You should know where. I'm going to go with this next player by now. Net is none other than dwayne haskins. I am excited to see what dwayne haskins can bring to the table. I talked about this in my recap on saturday all the sudden. It seems as if the steelers. Now dave scofield. We talked about this when he was at my house. He kinda disagreed and said remember. My tom and all he talks about is getting his team. Ready for the hall of fame game the players. That are gonna play the most. I am going to be really excited. Not just to see what dwayne haskins can do from a quarterback standpoint. But i want to see how the steelers handle the quarterback position does mason rudolph even play on thursday night and can't high or is it just masonry or is it just wayne haskins and joshua dobbs. That's a really good question that i'm excited to see. Also if they play mason rudolph. How quickly do they answered. Haskins the real telling the telling part of this. Preseason will not just be in this game. Because like i said in this game there are no starters if there are. They're very few. It's going to be in the second game. The third game in the fourth game mainly the second and third were. They insert haskins in then. Let's also not forget it. Also be a big player component of all this is. How does haskins play. Is he going to show flashes of what has been mainly reported as a very positive training cam or is he gonna show signs of how he played for washington is you're gonna have a tendency to turn the ball over. Is he a little bit more mobile kenny. Understand and run the offense all signs point to yes so far but that doesn't necessarily mean that that's exactly what's going to happen. So dwayne haskins is on my list for obvious reasons next. I go with player. That in twenty twenty was drafted and he did not have a preseason. He did not have anything. Other than virtual rookie mini vans virtual. Ota's virgil mandatory minicamp. And it wasn't a little training camp that he actually got his first taste of nfl action. He had signs and and there were moments where you could just see the potential coming from this player. It just seemed like he could never put it all together. It almost seemed like sometimes his eyes got so big and his feet got so excited that he tripped and fell on his face. If you don't know what. I'm talking about by now. It's anthony mcfarland. The running back just recently reported training camp. He busted a forty touchdown run. He is lightning in a bottle. The problem was last season is like i said nothing ever came together. I'm excited for him to get repetitions. You can't i. i'm sorry. But i am not buying into this fat this theory that just because he played some snaps in twenty twenty as a rookie that he is somehow seasoned as a football player. No in my opinion. This is the second half of his rookie season. Unless you're chase claimable or alex. Highsmith who played significant snaps. Now even throw kevin dotson into that category. These players are still learning about the nfl game. It's just the way that it is until because of the situation in twenty twenty. I'm really excited to see what anthony mcfarland brings. Does he bring a different dynamic. Does he bring that third down back or change of pace back. That fans are hoping for or is it not so much. It's really not that great. And what what we're gonna see is just another running back has speed became really hit the whole. We don't know we don't know we haven't seen it. We'll see if hopefully we can see what's going to happen with. Anthony mcfarland the former us university of maryland terrapin in the final and the fifth on offense. I'm gonna go with second round. Pick from penn state tight end pat firm youth fryer youth has been getting rave reviews as a pass catcher. We know he's athletic. We know he can run routes. We know he can catch the football. Everyone is heard this statistic where every single time his senior season that he was targeted in the red zone with a catchable pass. He caught the ball. This is not breaking news and this is not anything that said. Wow i didn't realize farm. You can catch the ball like this. No this is what he does. The question is can block at the nfl level. That's the question. Can you block the nfl level. He's going to be tested. He was abused in backs on backers drills or more than ones just on saturday they did the open-field a linebacker on tight end and alex smith had his way with him more than one account. He has work to do in that arena. I think he can learn. I think he can improve but pad farm us. I'm actually looking forward to just seeing him. Play how fluid does he look. Does he look he. Did they used to call him. Baby gronk i. That's i'm not putting that on anybody but at the same time i'm watching him and how. How does he look like. He's kind of gotten acclimated to the nfl in the nfl. Game until we shall see so those are my five offensive players who get out your pen and paper and write these down players to watch. According to jeff hartmann kendra green center. Dan moore junior tackle quarterback dwayne haskins running back anthony mcfarland and pat ferrari meath tight end out of those three out of the five or rookies. That shouldn't surprise surprise anyone. They're going to see a lot of playing time on thursday in can't know. Oh what about the defense in. What about some honorable mentioned players. We'll talk about ever. This breaks agent support for this episode comes from.

"On his. Like j cuba even have a projected that way and i do as well where between clay pool and juju i only have fifteen and still it puts them all inside of wide receiver twenty six. I think the past sisters where we were we. You and i are aligned. We just still think they're gonna pass allied. You have them dropped with the past. I had the pass attempts dropped. And i also have a lot more of the passes going to nausea harris rather than the james connor. And anthony mcfarland. Benny smell combination from last year. So i see. Nashi harris being a huge factor. In this offense which is gonna take away from the three wide receivers. A lot of those touchdowns scored were inside of the red zone. I see a lot of red zone especially when they get inside of the five going to nausea harris that we're going to the klay pool of last year. What do you have their pass attempts. At how many i see their pass attempts finishing right around six hundred with that extra week in there this year. Okay so that's a hundred and thirty two juju and klay pool. One fifty two johnson and eighty two to nausea. I see all three of them. Kind of eating at each other stats. I see nause harris getting a lot. More work in the passing game than people are expecting. And i just see both and all three of them sliding outside of the top twenty four. I think the big difference just based off like into my projections is so much. More of a comes off of hebron is what i ended up doing is docking ebrahim the most and then kind of aligning nausea. Like you said with the whole backfield as a whole and then kind of dispersing the the dock from ibran amongst everyone. Because i only have big ben for six hundred twenty pass attempts which as you know a couple of times per game basically if you only have six hundred so that number is not as big. I thought it was going to be honestly i. I'll be surprised if big ben can stay healthy this year. He's thirty nine years old. He's fresh off that injury elbow from two years ago. I don't necessarily see him making it like he. The offensive line is gonna let him get hit so much he's going to take more hits than we've seen before in as your body gets older in the nfl. Those hits add up a lot more than they used to when he was a young buck back in the day. That's where this comes in is big ben's health. It doesn't have anything to do about the talent at wide receiver about drops about touched on regression. It's whether big ben can stay healthy or not..

"There is an opening at that outside linebacker on the outside linebacker. Outside cornerback position. Can he take that job. And say cam sutton you were signed. But they knew they they're going to use you on the inside. Can he do it. I have to think that some of these players were drafted. Last season are just chomping at the bit to get an opportunity to show extended repetitions. Carla's davis anthony mcfarland. These guys didn't have a preseason last year and so that is going to be big. These games are going to be big. And we're gonna talk about the second half of the show this preseason willoughby a good test. We'll talk about that but let's get into these individuals so i said earlier. I don't think we've learned anything really about the team. But i do think we have learned even in this small sample size a lot about certain individuals and i broke this down four on defense. Four on offense. And i'm gonna just go one by one talk about the player why i feel like we've learned something about it and we're going to hash this out together so to start on defense. Wanna start on defense one of the individuals that i feel like we've learned about is antoine brooks junior someone. I brought up six round. Pick out of maryland. Twenty twenty nfl. Draft and. I have to be honest here. I didn't have really high expectations for anton brooks ginger coming in at twenty twenty one. This is a player that did not make the team out of training camp. Last year he was cut didn't get picked up. They sign him to the practice squad. He ends up getting elevated any sticks with fifty three man roster for the rest of the season but now all of a sudden they have him being the heir apparent their words. The media's words not mine the heir-apparent to mike hilton. He had a tremendous interception earlier in camp of ben rothlisberger. Keep that in mind. It wasn't mason. Rudolph or dwayne haskins joshua dobbs. It was ben in now all of a sudden he did get banged up a little bit on sundays workout. They said it's not serious. He's considered day to day. He should be fine but still antoine brooks junior. My goodness we've learned something about this guy but not just what we've learned about him we've learned about how the steelers are planning on utilizing him. Maybe i never thought as a safety when they drafted him. I was told that he was a box safety. Love to play the line of scrimmage. You did well. I didn't think that he was athletic. Enough to play the slide. We'll see we shall see arthur millette going to get a shot especially if brooks is out for a little bit. So we'll see. But anton brooks we have learned a lot about him as an individual cam sudden. Maybe cam sudden but how the steelers are going to utilize. We know cam. Sudden kim son's a veteran at this point to sign a new contract is second contract in the nfl. With the pittsburgh steelers in terra lawson spoke with media on sunday and he said that the plan right now is for the steelers to keep cam sudden on the outside. That's the plan. He's that kind of change. If there's someone like james pierre or just lane step up then they'll move cam back into the inside. He can play the nickel he can play. Time will see but as of right now that the steelers plan and we've all wondered this throughout the offseason. How are they gonna utilize cam sutton right now. He's opposite joe hayden as the as the number two cornerback or the other cornerback. Maybe don't maybe number one to here's another player on the defensive side of the ball. Roberts splaine now if i were to have written an article. When i didn't do this i thought about it. I thought it was in poor taste. And that's why didn't do it. If i would have written an article that said these and then number say four players. That benefited from the retirement of vince. Williams could have written that article. It would have probably done great and we'd probably a a lot of pages. But i said you know what now vince williams has been good with our site..

"Two receivers they have listed or deontay johnson and you just misused her then the next up sorry three waters was almost give chase klay poll the three wide receivers start so it's johnson chase klay poll juju smith schuster. So i don't know exactly. They didn't designate any one of them being inside outside how they would do it. So it's very difficult to tell their but those were the three then. They had james washington behind the andre. Johnson he was with the second group with ray. Ray mcleod and cody white. Then the third group was rico. I think it's seattle tickets bussey. I'm not sure. But that's whichever one it is. Isaiah mccoy and anthony johnson and then the fourth on the list was matthew sexton and tyler simmons so those are the wide receivers. Lots of everything spread out there. They we'll go after wide. Receivers will go to tight end. They only listed one and the order they went was first eric braun. Second pat firm. Uth doesn't surprise anybody. They're the only thing that's really interesting. Harris who was third and steelers had zach. Gentry's third kevin raiders fourth dax. Raymond is fifth. So that's the tight end running back to no one's surprise nausea harris's i he's listed as the first running back then. The order goes what they're starting off with is then it goes snell junior anthony mcfarland junior jalen samuels kaylin balaj. Now if you've noticed someone's missing from that list you're like wait. I thought i thought that was a six to one. There is now trae edmonds. He's actually listed as the second player on the depth chart at fullback behind. Eric watt now that simply could have been that they didn't really want to go out to a six level at running back but also you have to remember. That treatments did play some fullback. When derek wall was injured last year not a lot but then again there. What didn't play a lot. Either in the steelers offense. So that's interesting. Let's go to the offensive line because we're gonna we're going to save the big one for last offensive line for the five spots. Were pretty much. We knew what they were going to be. Left tackle was chew chor. Four left guard kevin dodson right tackle zach banner. Right guard trae turner. What's really interesting for. The steelers is at center. They have jc hassen hours. The first team kendrick green is the second team and bj vinnie vinnie. Third in that group so chances are half an hour might be the name there because he started games for the steelers last year at that position. I don't know but it is interesting that it was half an hour and not finney. That was up there. Now when it comes to be j finney. He actually is on this list twice because he's as the third string center and he's also listed as the as the second team left guard behind kevin dotson. So let's go through these position about position on the line and left tackle. It goes to core for dan moore chaz green of collins at left guard. It's kevin dotson. Bj finney brandon walton center. I already said about do it again. Jc hassen our kendrick green and bj. Finney right guard trae. Turner rashad coward. Anthony coyle right. Tackle zach banner. Joe hague john naghlu so those are the offensive line the way it sits right now so if you were to look at that and just merely for the guys during the first two groups there's ten different players they're the steelers will probably keep nine guys so that's probably the best way. Look at it now. Let's go the last position on offense one. You might be waiting for not because of the top. Because how it goes afterwards quarterback the list goes ben rothlisberger mason rudolph d'alene haskins joshua dobbs so if we were wondering i was one personally that i wasn't ready to put haskins ahead adopt until i saw him on the field the steelers they have haskins down there. It might just be based on what they're planning to do the first week or that could be where he really is. We will see when the season rolls around or as the preseason gets deeper. Now let's go ahead and jump into the defense trying to keep this shortest possible. It's very interesting. How the steelers do the defensive line. They listed with three different positions defensive..

"And i think that's a huge mistake that people make and number two would be going for too much floor at the back into your draft and just saying well you know he he. Jason witten might catch a couple a passes every now and again and then i think that's. That's a losing strategy. You wanna go for guys who might rise up aboard throughout a preseason throughout throughout training camp if they start getting hype one of the examples. I keep throwing back to his last year brandon. I was basically free for six months. And then all of a sudden in august deebo samuel. It was obvious he wasn't going to be back. He starts moving up the draft board. I'm always going to buy on young players. Who have some talent over some aging veterans towards the end of my draft. That's not to say that those veterans don't have a place but i always want to draft upside at the end of those drafts and and i'm willing to bite the bullet on it on guys like anthony mcfarland for the steelers. By the way this past year i draft didn't necessarily work out. I am not going to regret that drafting a younger talented player. As opposed to an older guy who you know like a frank gore who might get ten carries game. But what's he gonna do with those carries a m- never regret doing that. I will always take the upside swing over the the boring veteran who even on his best day probably ends up in my flex spot. Make sure you check out this man on social media joe dolan at f. g. underscore dole and all the great content. He produces four fantasy points. If you go there.

"Joe go forty two and a half point over under seven point favorites for cleveland. Is you mentioned. This tells you. Vegas stinks and the books thing that pittsburgh is going to be resting at starters. Maybe pittsburgh decides hey. We finally got going in that second. Half against indianapolis. We locked up this division title. We've not seen any tangible difference between the number two in the number three seed. We're going to try to bottle up that momentum and ed into the playoffs healthy for dfs. Keep an eye on this. You can maybe get some low ownership. Low price plays at receiver with somebody. Like james washington or railway macleod. In the backfield. Maybe the rookie anthony mcfarland. They can't run the football anyway. But a james conner. Benny snell might be resting here. i wouldn't be terribly enthused. Play mason rudolph if he ends up playing most of this game at quarterback but those are some of the guys that you can look at for low price. I wouldn't expect these guys to carry your lineup but might give you the opportunity to put in some of the higher price skies. Maybe from the nfc playoff picture. Where you know a new orleans and green bay and seattle all battling it out for the number one seed. Get some of those higher price guys in your lineup..
Steelers’ Perfect Season Comes to an End With Loss to Washington
"Or game tonight. The undefeated steelers hosting the washington. Football team ben. Roethlisberger and alex smith go and head to head. Second quarter all steelers early. James washington to catch the steelers while received some of the best in the business with run out the catch all been has to get the ball in their hands. They know exactly what to do with it. Fourteen nothing pittsburgh. Meanwhile from the comeback player of the year alex smith. That's the last thing we want to see bleeding profusely after being cleared. It's the other leg to quick nap. Critical moment final seconds of the first half of the clock. Ticking down. Alex smith getting sacked on a third-down play. No timeouts left the trying to run the field goal team out but the clock is going to be stopped by the officials and this may have been sneaky from alex smith. this sneaky. good better and move by. Alex realized that he doesn't have any time outs left and if they used the ball in play to probably not going to be able to get the feel law so retards off with the football. They got to stop the clock in the points. Before the you take a look. Ron rivera's yelling everybody's yelling but we're going to show it to you here. Watch alex smith again. Sneaky veteran move the official saying. Give me the ball. Alex smith is saying. I got other ideas. He takes that one himself. They have to look. He's laughing he knows. Exactly what is doing common knows what he's doing and in the end it results in three medical points. Dustin hopkins forty nine yards. It's up it's good. Fourteen three at the have a little momentum shift now oakland drive of the third smith. Watch cam simms. This might have been the biggest play for the washington football team in this game. And don't just take my word for mike. Tomlin talked about this after the game. Felt like he was a real turning point thirty yards on the catch and run a big first down in that would lead to this. How about logan thomas to the one converted quarterback out of college logan thomas with some great hands being able to get down to the one he's really turned into a professional title. They were punching in premier. So fourteen steelers fourth quarter at seventeen ten at smith. It's thomas wide open worldwide. That's a busted covers right there but don't fault the waas to football team alex smith to taking advantage of the miscues by the steelers. So we're all even now the steelers of a fourth and one on the twenty eighth. They're kick chris. Boswell is out the rookie. Matt right is there. And so mike tomlin elects to go for it a throw was to anthony mcfarland his miscue there and the washington football team takes over on downs and that leads to. This happened this catch. This is a big time catch right here by camps and being able to survive the ground one handed grab pressure situation. Can't do it any better than that. That's a big first down later in the drive. Dustin hopkins from forty five away at the first looks. It's going to hook but then it hangs and it's good to washington up twenty two seventeen but mike tomlin had used his timeouts. Well they will going to have plenty of time. But there's no time when this happens a no deflections your the game washington. Football team's defensive line. Being able to get their hands in passing lanes four passes from that group to reaper. For montesquieu it'll be no perfect season. Washington wins

"Saturday night toda's pod talking fantasy football here at a mazer jamie is. They got a lot of questions we figured might as well. Just do this podcast. Hopefully we'll help you give you some good advice fingers crossed. There's a lot of question marks out there right now. Jamie let's go Situation by situation first of all if you don't have a commissioner who a nice enough to let you substitute steelers ravens if the game gets canceled. Do you just basically have to say or. Do you think they're gonna play that game. I think they're going to play that game. But obviously there's you know positive tests positive cases popping up with the steelers Today obviously james conner being the the big one so if they get more positive cases the game could obviously be in jeopardy. But i mean we've seen with the nfl's done so far. They've tried to push through as much as they can. And so if they have enough healthy body on both. I mean no. We're going to talk about the situation over. There never would have met and they're gonna play this game on tuesday. I hope so. Yeah i mean. I hope we get that game in. It's going to be tuesday night as of now okay. So let's talk about that. Ravens steelers game he goes. Yes picking up. Benny snell was a very good idea. Anthony mcfarland might not be a terrible idea also because connors going to miss two games right i think so it's it's clearly not defined yet but the fact that they play five days after playing tuesday i don't think he's going to be able to play against washington in week. Thirteen okay so ranks running backs in that game. Now snell edwards mcfarland justice. Even though we'll jail see tip about justice hill yeah. I just think you know that. There's a clear indication of what the ravens have done with gus edwards in two games without mark ingram Double digit carries. So i mean maybe justice still has a good opportunity here but i i just..

"So those steers responded by going no huddle going into empty, spreading them out, letting those great receivers win space and it was affected. I think just to go bring a full circle to the original question. Dave like this is a good offense. It's an efficient offense. It's an offense that I think might not be built to, like put together an explosive plays. Certainly not to the tune of Kansas City. Andi. I do wonder. I do question whether or not how effective they would be if They were to say, fall behind to the Chiefs, but I think right now it's operating at like the highest level like that. It can. I mean, listen, that counts as some mild pessimism. I think to say that this is as good as the offense can be. I hold out hope that you know that the kid from Marilyn Anthony McFarland, who is one touch, but I mean so excited. He was like, Oh, no, you know, play. Couldn't you say could you got off the train in the classic? The classic thunder and lightning? I don't know. James Caan accounts is thunder, but I I feel like you know, that guy maybe has a role. Maura Maura. And I also think that Matt Canada, with all the Jets sweep action. He may not be the original originator of it in pro football, But you know, he really was doing that stuff in college and in the NFL. And maybe that we'll start to see more of that. I don't know if we will. I think that's arrived A couple of times you've seen a little bit of and it's and it's made a difference for the team. Andi irony is for any longstanding FC fan is. How did Dick Lobo's? What was the kryptonite to Dick Lobo's Blitz? Heavy defense? It was Tom Brady just know we have here. It made me crazy that this was like the Steelers. The events look at what we did to Joe Flacco, like, Come on. We know how this story ends. Tom Brady. If we see them in the postseason, we know it's got. Why do we continue to roll this? But now they did basically that all right. You want to you want to throw every It was crazy, though, in the first half an early part of the second half when they would have literally two guys unblocked. Just overload one side of the line. And just like poor rock. This burger is ridiculous. Andre figured out. They spread it out, and the rest was history there. Conversely, Lamar Jackson people say Like, Well, you gotta admit that they they got lucky. And now one look at the numbers of that game, saying, OK, Dave, the woman who works in national sports talk the whole all week. It's been Lamar can win a big game, so I'm gonna dispute your Ian's there. Homer perspective there until you've been there. Homer, The narrative is fully bin people. Ooh Poo pooing Lamar all week.

"I think I think that'll be a good test where they're not brandin cooks is for real or not. Don't know if I'm starting Brandin cooks next week if I have them. I give Brandin cooks one more week to be patient on. That I'm smashing that panic button. All right now, let's talk about some guys that have had some fantasy success over the first couple of weeks of the season, and whether we're going to be bold and hold onto them or we're going to sell high on them. So let's get right into it for up on my list thing about Todd Gurley thing about Todd Gurley you probably got him in. Your fourth or fifth round of your fantasy draft Lotta earlier, maybe a little later depending on you drafted. But yet a guy, you're thinking rb to thing a big name over the first three weeks of the season we quantity at thirteen seven point fantasy points we to six point one points and week three fifteen point two points, two touchdowns on the season for girly. Now, he's he's averaging sixteen rush attempts game, which is good. But what really cause for optimism here is the upcoming schedule. They play Green Bay Carolina in Minnesota in which I think he's going to have some success against all three of those teams whether it's rushing the ball. Even in the receiving downs I think that girlie gets a little bit more usage as we move ahead here in the receiving downs as well. Now. What really? Causes me to be optimistic. is, looking at Atlanta Owen three, there already been questions raised Dan Quinn is GonNa lose his job and what that's GonNa look like if Dan Quinn loses his job, you know are they going to be a fundamental running team after Dan Quinn leaves or if Dan Quinn leaves? Are they going to use early a lot more? They're gonNA. Try to conserve. The ball and and really try to enforce the running game. used the play action pass, where early really excelled and do use utilize him in check down modes you know try to really possess the ball a lot more instead of just taking the big shots down the field having quick three and outs and having to punt the ball back to the team. So that's why I'm optimistic gung early. And I'm going to be bold and hold onto him. I think that his best days are actually right in front of him. Next up James Connor Than James Connors a good discussion point here he had Russia's last week in for one hundred and nine yards on a touchdown. Got Two hundred and seventy yards in two TS in the last two games substantial numbers. Now. Raise the eyebrow for me is James Connors injury prone. Hate to say love the kid he's a good player. He's just is he's just not built to be a sixteen weeks season type of kid. You know and the way that he runs the punishing style that he runs he's GonNa, get dinged up, and if I were you guys, I would strongly be considering getting rid of him while he's hot. And here's another statistic for you. Anthony McFarland Benny Snell took fourteen touches away from him to start the game on Sunday. Fourteen Does that trend. Increase. Does he get more production and get hurt? You know these are the things that kind of raise an eyebrow to me thinking. It was great. Why had James Connor drafted him pretty high but is there somebody? Can I get somebody else in my lacking at another position that I can get some return on him and get another position I think that he's not gonNa make it through the end of the season, and if you're trying to win your fantasy league I, don't think he might be there..

"And Ben I understand your philosophy is to sort of void this group right not going to be. If. There was anyone here for Carson Gordon Gurley Bill Conner. Anyone that you think could be really good this year. Yeah. I mean it's always going to be receptions and touchdowns in a little bit offense related I think really situation is the best and that is able to stay healthy. If his knee is not an issue, he has the best chance of this group to have a big season. You know they rooted devante Freeman at a time to a little bit probably better of a pass catching back then girly which kind of a little bit weird to say. As overall. But Gurley was among there was an article today at five thirty on in separate separation desperate. He was among the worst in the league and you just kind of went out into the flat for the last couple years as a pass catcher were doing a lot much better earlier and scream. But I think if he gets some of that, back gets a little bit of a a spark back and step in. He's doing some of the things that framed done the pass game and is able to convert in in close which he's always done with rain teams devilish touchdowns last year that's the one here. That's the offense that I would target out of all these veteran backs. Competition is not great behind them. I think he did really hold onto a big role, but you can take the big points and what you just said about girly and apply directly to James Connor and say that if he stays healthy, he's in a great spot to his offensive line is great his offense as good. They're gonNA give him the rock a bunch, and he's got a shot at catching over fifty passes. He's done it before he was on pace to do it again last year and he was on pace score fourteen touchdowns last year. That's how many girly scored I believe. I look at connor as a slightly less risky version of girly mainly because his knees I think are healthier than girls, knees and I think the steelers have no choice that kind of painted themselves into quarter as much as you and I love Anthony Mcfarland Ben I, think the steelers paying themselves into quarter. There's okay. Look James Connor is going to be our guy. Well, I think Benny. Smells in the next to the I would agree with the what degree to what degree is Benny Smell going to be I agree with what you said this comparison completely except for the point about girly not having a ton of backup competition. I think conor BITs means Samuels snout McFarland has a lot more competition. Samuels team. And we as far as. Running, backs, and in competition, I think really might have more. I. Just don't know if they're necessarily good competition. Is the best name, but they always ask. Heath is brought this up I'll speak for heath since he dropped out, they always split carries in Atlanta. devante. Has Been like a fourteen carry per game guy something like that I remember my head recently. And by the way, just to bring up Melvin Gordon's name. I think Melvin Gordon's got a pretty good chance at fifty catches. You guys right because he's going to be on there for pass. protection. He scored eight or more touchdowns. Three straight years. He's just good at finding the end zone. So He's interesting to me. Sucky your offensive line forum but if you don't yeah, it's always been. Could be trouble for guy that's struggled to maintain a good rushing average..

Don't know what to think about these players, though with like Roth asperger's question marks what could happen if he doesn't play, but what else could happen if he does play sixteen, absolutely big gamble, and like last year, not of their receivers had over sixty receptions that just how impactful a healthy goad quarterback is versus duck. Hodges we've literally seen the ceiling in two thousand eighteen and we saw the floor twenty, nine, thousand, nine hundred, and they are too extreme, so it just comes down to if you're willing to take the gamble or not Juju going currently in the end of round three before we even jumped to Juju, are you as taking any flyers on?
