What's up, everybody? Welcome to the hateful Hitman Podcast.
Thursday Night Live on SportsCastr Got Week seven, building your lineup from myself and Brian.
Welcome at B with 50.
My name is Chris Straws.
More You can find me on Twitter at Hateful Hitman.
You could find my show, That hateful hitman podcast.
Wherever you get your podcast, we're gonna do building your lineup first.
And then we'll talk about the Giants and the Eagles.
Yeah, First I want to say, hey, even if you're a no for if you're a no for in your fantasy leagues, you still owe it to your league mates to put your team fill your lineup out.
You still owe it to your link, Okay? Every week.
And here's the reason why If you are a no for and you don't put your lineup in and you get in your you get a cheap win or your opponent gets a cheap win.
That's great for the guy.
But if you next week you decide to put a line up in and you don't care anyway and you get a win, Okay, you need to be consistent.
Fill your lineups out.
Public service announcement, Big 10 kicks off this weekend.
A lot of buzz here in Ohio for the Big 10 to kick off a lot of good games.
Ohio State, Nebraska.
Uh, Michigan faces Minnesota.
That'd be a good game.
So it kicks off.
This weekend is good to have the big 10 back.
Gonna have football, you know, to keep just keep rolling here.
We got covitz issues going around, but, you know, we're keeping in the bay and we're pushing through Week seven.
Building your lineup.
Brian sent me his lineup in.
He will be joining.
It's not just a myth he will be joining at some point.
Uh, he's shifting back to third shift, so he's gradually getting in there and he won't be able to join us on the SportsCastr lives at some point would be nice to have him as opposed to just reading what he sends me.
I did not read his lineup that he sent me a little bit ago and I created mine.
I try to do things a little bit differently so that we have different views.
This week we got some crossover and that's okay because That means we're both on the same page with some of these players. So here we go.
Quarterback for Bryant might do Kyler Murray Arizona is what he says at home versus Seattle.
The over under 56 points will be scored fresh off a nine for 24 performance.
Seattle Seattle was averaging, rendering 70 yards past against them.
Great bounce back spot for his wide receivers and his passing yards says Rushing Floor assures you.
You never have to question if you start him average 61 yards and a touchdown per game.
What that means is this game is a blueprint for Kyler.
Murray. Start him.
He's got the weapons he's working more players in.
And if it's not there, he's taking off, keeping himself safe.
Get out of bounds, protecting his body collar. Murray.
His upside is huge.
His his, um, dynasty value is like crazy right now.
If you've got any shares of Kyler Murray, you're doing good.
I've got several and I'm so happy that I was ableto wiggle my way up on draft him last year when he came out as a rookie because this dude is gonna be good as long as he keeps himself healthy.
I wanted to go with Colin Murray.
I did, but I wanted to use somebody different.
Justin Herbert, fresh off his bye week versus Jacksonville Justin Herbert has been a surprise rookie sensation of quarterback this year.
Love what I'm seeing out of him.
I was able to go and grab him off the free agent wire and two leagues, so check your leagues.
Also, people, check your free agents, see who's been dropped, see who's still hanging in there.
You know, I was able to pick him up and I'm gonna play him this week.
It's a two quarterback league.
I'm starting him and Kyler Murray.
I love my chances this week.
Um, I love Justin her, but this big versus Jacksonville.
Alright, going on Brian's wide running backs, Erin Jones and or or Josh Kelly and Justin Jackson.
Erin Jones at the Texans.
Houston is dead last in rushing yards per game.
I'm reading this verbatim, so it's not.
I'm just looking away and reading this. What he wrote me.
Uh, Justin Jackson took the reins, but I hope there's room for both, and they have Melvin Gordon Heckler type usage feel a little better if you start him in several leads like Brian is, which that means if you have multiple shares of him, you know, you can spread them out and, uh, get the benefit here and there.
Erin Jones at the Texans dead last in rushing yards.
Jones's rushed 10 times for 15 yards last week.
Expect the opposite this week.
Definitely a possibility against the Houston Texans.
My two running backs.
Mike Davis, DeAndre Swift.
DeAndre Swift building up. They are.
They are giving him Mawr and Mawr every week.
Okay, It's like you have a plate of food and you get a little bit more on it. Every week.
They give you a little bit more scoop.
They want some green beans.
There you go. Take him.
Okay? They're giving him more stuff every week, and it's building.
He had a really good week last week.
He is a boom player.
Okay, Especially if he's sharing the load with with Peterson still, but they're they're transitioning into that, and I love the upside for him this week.
Mike Davis is still the same old grinded out guy He's catching the ball, He's running the ball.
He's he's doing a great job in filling in for Christian McCaffrey, and he didn't want to use this guy while you got the chance.
Because when McCaffrey comes back, Mike Davis is probably gonna be, you know, done.
As long as McCaffrey states healthy.
So using while you can playing the Saints off of a bye week, you know they're going to continue to use Mike Davis.
That Carolina offense is sneaky good, and I like to play there.
Wide receivers D J Shark playing the Chargers, giving up 273 passing yards a game.
He's had 14 targets.
He had 14 targets last week, going into a game with a questionable tags to keep a night on his availability.
Limited practice on Wednesday.
Looks like he's good to go.
Sneaky shootout potential in this game, and that goes back to the whole, uh, Justin Herbert.
If they're scoring, then Jacksonville may have to score to keep pace.
Totally love that play.
Tee Higgins at home versus the Browns.
Targets a game in the last four.
Cleveland's giving up 271 yards a game.
And apparently he's.
Guy was handpicked by borough to go at the end of the tool, one of the NFL draft.
This connection could be fired for years, and Joe Burrow did plead for this guy.
He's like, I want this guy. Bring him in.
And they drafted Tee Higgins and these guys were gonna grow kind of like Dalton and a J.
Green did when they first came into the league.
Um, I also I have T. Higgins.
It is a flex versus Cleveland.
A lot of the same things.
This is Burrows guy going forward.
Um, you know, we did see a little bit of a J. Green.
He showed up last week, but, you know, this is definitely the direction that they want ahead.
Young kid, young receiver.
You know, this could be like Bryant said, big for years, big time combination going forward.
As long as they could protect your borough.
He's been he's getting sacked.
He's leading the NFL in ***, not a shock.
Bengals protect Joe Burrow and they have a blueprint for success.
They have good running back.
Good wide receiver out there, young.
You've been protected, so I have him in my flex as well.
Christian Kurt Martin Jones.
This is a two for one.
They have done nothing this year, but they are facing the bottom to pass defenses and to projected high scoring games.
There are worse guys to start.
If you have byes and star studded.
S meeting all your stars sake on deck.
All men guys are on IR.
I have Christian Kirk as a play myself, and the reason for it is is this is building also, I had Christian critics.
One of my one of my he was on my, uh, hitman's hit list the beginning of the season.
He's working himself into the offense and becoming a deep down the field threat.
Okay? And he's a boom play.
But you could see that boom play, you know, play out again against Seattle and a shootout matchup for sure.
Another flex for Brian.
Todd Gurley at home versus Detroit.
No fewer than 14 carries a game as many as 21 along with 17 targets in the passing game line 129th in the league versus the run, giving up 145 yards a game, he says.
Always chased the volume.
That's what I preach on my podcast, all the times opportunity.
If you have the opportunity and you're getting the ball when you're getting the volume, it's going to pay out for you.
In the end, Okay, finishing out mine.
Ah, Julio Jones versus Detroit.
Julio Jones came back in a big way last week, and if he's healthy, that's Matt Ryan's guy.
He's looking to him off.
He showed up last week.
I had him in the league.
I wasn't sure if I should plane.
Luckily, I one in the league I had him in.
But, man, he had two big touchdowns.
Big day, big day.
And as long as he's in the lineup, Matt Ryan's different quarterbacks chase Claypool.
Little wide receiver dinged up issues are other wide receivers or hurt Chase Clay.
Flu is up and coming Matchup Nightmare.
I talked about him on my podcast last night.
He is a big time problem for Tennessee.
Okay, he could be the game changer in this game, both teams undefeated.
Both teams want to stay that way, you know.
Look for Chase Claypool.
You know toe, exploit a mismatch and have a good game, you know, and a real good match up versus the Tennessee Titans.
I also got a CD land.
Look, I'm not giving up on CD Lamb.
It's gonna take a lot for that to happen.
He was still targeted, and he was.
Still, he still showed last week and a blowout game that was hard to watch.
Almost 11 of the hardest games I've watched as a Cowboys fan in my 45 years, but he's still targeted.
And if the ball comes this, but he's going to catch it, and that's a security blanket.
Okay, I'm also not giving up on Dalton Schultz because he had a manageable, uh, fantasy game for you as well.
So, uh, Cooper, I'm still on the air.
About up in the air should be a better game this week.
Uh, it's a winnable game for Dallas, although I wouldn't be surprised if Washington football team beats him.
But, um, you know, it's it should be a little bit better.
It can't be much worse, so I'm not giving up on city land.
He's targeted heavily, and it just takes one miss and this guy has gone so I love city land.
Hopefully he sticks it out.
So I got so I got for our but in your line of okay Jets or excuse me Giants Philly Preview game here.
And it's the battle of the NFC least the all four teams were playing each other this week.
This is a huge game for all four teams.
If Philly can win and keep themselves relevant and Washington beats Dallas.
Oh my goodness, there's there's a three way mix up right there at the top.
If the Giants win and Dallas wins, there's still a little bit of separation.
So, you know, as a Cowboy fan, uh, this game tonight is just horrible to me.
There's there's Arkansas State game are probably a little bit more of attention to, but the implications of early mid season.
It's mid season Now.
Let's just call it mid season between the entire NFC East, playing each other is gonna speak volumes going forward.
So Dallas Washington and it all starts tonight with Philly and the Giants.
So if if the Giants could get a win, okay, they get themselves relevant again.
Okay? You in Philadelphia already doesn't have Miles Sanders.
He's out Boston Scott, I.
There's people picking him up in fantasy leagues and playing him. I had to.
I picked him up out of out of sheer necessity for because of injuries by weeks and so on.
And I'm playing him, I think, in one spot.
So I'm hoping he shows up and does something.
But every time we try to rely on Boston Scott for a one week play, he lets us down.
So I don't know what to expect.
I'm have to have attempted to say I wake up tomorrow and see He had 85 yards, six catches and two touchdowns, but then also about I can also see had six carries for 13 yards and that's it.
So I'm not gonna be surprised, Actually, almost almost make that. Take that back.
If he has a good game, that will shock me because I'm not expecting it, so I'm or expect the the lower side of it.
And you know, if you hit you, if you get you to double figures, you know and PPR or even half PPR if you get you 8 to 10 points, you got to call that a win PPR Double figures for Boston.
Scott, if you're planning, is a win other side of the ball.
Ah, lot of people are gonna go ahead and play Devante Freeman or State.
I don't know. That's it. Okay.
Play, uh, out of necessity, injuries by weeks, whatever you know.
And he's been he's been okay.
He's been productive, and he's been better than I had assumed he was gonna be.
So you know, it's It's okay, play for him.
And there's always a chance that catches your four or five balls to so not a bad play.
I like Slaten Azaz, more of a safety blanket for Daniel Jones.
Their wide receivers were banged up well, so not a whole lot to like in this game.
Both teams are at the bottom of the NFC least, and that's hard to do because the Cowboys are winning the division with two wins.
So you know the winner of this game is really gonna benefit.
They're gonna put themselves in a really good position to challenge, you know, going forward.
So we shall see.
Right? That's it.
That's why I try to keep him at here on Thursday nights um it looks like, um, to, uh, talk about two for one minute.
It looks like to, uh, is gonna take over the starting position in Miami after the bye week.
Spoke about this last night.
I don't know why they're doing it now, and the only thing that comes to my mind is that they've had this plan in place since the beginning of the season that if two is healthy and we get into the bye week and he's good to go, we're gonna put him in there after the bye week ago.
But, you know, you have to really feel bad for Fitzpatrick for what he said about, You know, he really felt like this was his team, and he was heartbroken that he was getting benched.
You know, he felt he looked comfortable in that offense.
He was throwing the ball 300 yards.
They went out west and smoke the Niners.
Yeah, I don't I don't understand it, but, you know, I'm just a guy who likes to talk fantasy football and football in general, so I don't know much Good luck this week and find me on Twitter right here for Whitman.
