going live here to talk some fantasy football today.
First off, I want to say hope you guys, they're having a great week.
Definitely been a busy week for me.
Sport, work and everything, but on my way to work Now I want to talk fantasy football.
I know a lot of injuries happened this week, and it's not not definitely screwed a lot of our fantasy teams.
And, uh, obviously, that's not all we're worried about.
We want we want those guys to get healthy and get back to their normal lives.
But as far as fantasy goes, it does kinda suck.
Um, so the two injuries for me that really killed me this week were David and Joe cou um, you got a top tight end.
Uh, you got tight, tight end in fantasy this year would have been and broke his read, uh, don't know how long he's gonna be out, And it could be the whole season.
It could be half the season.
All we know is it's gonna be a significant amount of time until he comes back.
And, uh, I'm gonna give you three guys that you're gonna want to pick up If you had David and Joeckel on your roster just to kind of well played.
I don't want to replace him, but replaced him until he comes back.
Um, Darren Waller.
The guy preached on all year that if you haven't picked him up yet, go pick him up now, whether David and joke who's hurt or not, or whether you have David and Joeckel on your roster, not pick him up because he is a great tight end.
Um, and Jon Gruden loves his tight end.
So Darren Waller is one guy that you're going to want to pick up.
Uh, TJ Hawkinson had a great week, one in a lot of leads.
You might already be taken, but if for some reason he's not, go pick him up now because he's another guy, that he's young, he's a rookie, but he had a great week. One.
I know that the lines are going to keep using him, and, uh, he's gonna have a really good season as well.
And, uh, last but not least, TJ Hawkins, TJ Hawkinson College.
Jamie No, A fan from the Denver Broncos.
Uh, he hasn't really put up great numbers so far, but they've only played two games, so I really expect him to have a pretty decent season as well.
Uh, another rookie.
And, uh, yeah, he's the Broncos are are pretty good with their tight end as well.
Um, I would expect him to have a pre decencies and maybe not as good TJ Hawkinson or Darren Waller.
But if for some reason neither of those guys are available, go pick up.
Athena's Well, now the bigger ones.
That really kind of screwed me was Drew Brees.
I had Drew Brees.
My team's doing great.
I was wanna know against one of the better teams in my fantasy league, actually, and, uh and then, ah, I got a game to and he literally had negative points.
And, uh, it killed me that week last week.
And so I had to go.
I'd drop my backup Kirk cousins for, um, a quarterback.
It was on the waiver, and that was Mason Rudolph, I think Mason Rudolph, even though he's still not a rookie drafted last year.
But even though he just had his you just played his first game, he looked very good again.
The Seattle defense and I'm not saying Seal Defense is the best defense in the league.
But with pick up of Davey on Clowney, they're not bad.
And I think that he looks pretty good against Seattle.
And, uh, I'm not saying to put all your faith in Mason Rudolph, but Mason Rudolph will not be a bad pick up If that is your last resort.
B goes, Um, I mean is picking up.
Q. B is off the waiver wire.
There's not really too much.
Um, there's not really too much strategy to it.
As much as there is with, like running backs and wide receivers, tight ends and stuff like that.
It's really just about the names, you know, and who do you think's gonna do good.
And who do you think's gonna not do so great? Um, Kirk Cousins might be.
Might be on your might be on your waiver wire.
He's not a bad pick up, either.
Um, Jameis Winston is always a hit or miss.
Uh, there's there's a few guys out there, um, that the guy from Jacksonville, he probably had a lot of waivers as well.
I mean, I don't know how you guys feel about him, and it's all about confidence in your quarterback to as well.
But Minshew I think he wouldn't be a bad pick up a swell if you were if you were forced to make a forced to pick up a quarterback.
So I don't think that's a bad one.
Um, I did have a, uh, follower of mine on Twitter, which, if you don't follow me, go follow me on Twitter at Brandon Wolf C L E as in Cleveland.
1st 3 letters of Cleveland Plain and Wolf C L E.
Check it out, but I had a follower on Twitter.
Asked me should he start Jeff Wilson Jr over Joe Mixon Now Joe Mixon haven't had a great season.
I hate saying stuff like that.
Like Joe Mixon hasn't had a great season.
We're only two weeks.
It's not really gonna be like Joe Mixon putting up insane numbers two weeks and we knew Joe Mixon was gonna be an average kind of guy.
But this week they're playing the Bills, and I don't have too much faith in that build defense, and I think that you start Joe Mixon against the Bills because again.
The Bills defense isn't ridiculous.
They're not some insane.
They're not an insane defense, whereas Jeff Wilson Jr is.
They're playing the Steelers this week, and the Steelers aren't the hottest team in football there owing to.
But if they pride yourselves on one thing, it's that front seven.
That defense you got, T. J. Watt.
Um, they just picked up Mika Fitzpatrick to their whole defensive line is all has always been good.
Uh, I just I don't trust it.
I don't trust just Wilson Jr for the 40 Niners over Joe mixing just because you gotta look at the defense's they're going up against the bill.
Defense is obviously far worse, then steal his defense, even though the bills are.
They've had a great search of the season, and now the Steelers have it.
But the defense's are really what you're eyeing up there.
Um, I mean, I really, really not sure what else? I have to stay here on this about fantasy.
I didn't have too many people ask me too many questions.
Um, there's this.
This week's gonna be pretty interesting for the Browns.
I mean, we'll just transition over into the Brown stock.
Um it's Sunday night game.
It's a short week.
Uh, they're playing the Rams, one of the best teams in football.
It's not the best football there to know.
Browns are one and one.
Uh, you know, the Browns won on Monday Night Football against the Jets.
It's still have the way that they played the way they perform.
Still had a lot of people, uh, raising their eyebrows.
Um, and that's it worries a lot of people because Baker, even though he threw for 300 something yards, he looked really inaccurate.
Uh, you wasn't getting the ball out in time, Um, he was forcing stuff.
Now they were playing the jet fence again.
Isn't the greatest Jamal Adams is the Russian the best defender.
And I mean, if you're playing a team like the Rams, it's gonna be a lot tougher.
I mean, you're going up against Aaron, Donald and, uh, Dante Power.
I mean, those were two guys right there.
They're gonna be huge for you claim that you just signed for the defense.
I understand that he's trying to a great a great linebacker and will definitely be a future Hall of Famer.
So I mean, this team is going to be very scary. Play.
God, um the brown.
Honestly, if on the Browns you just wanna preach the same thing that we did after the weak one loss, gotta be more disciplined, mild gear.
It cannot be going in there and get in rushing past circles on every single call.
I understand that sometimes the rest are our trash.
But every single one against the Jets, it was they were all roughing the best route to the ground, that room for my whole life.
And I will admit that every single time miles here you'd be It felt like it was roughing events.
So Miles definitely has to be a little more disciplined.
Um, I mean, really Other than miles, you're This thing was really disciplined against the Jets.
There wasn't too many flags thrown our way.
As faras Horace, just the defense went.
I think that if we can play like that on Sunday night against the Rams, it will definitely help a lot because we're playing again the best team in football.
So putting yourself in a hole with penalties it's not.
It's not a way you want to start off your, um and then for the offense.
I just have to say it.
Baker, Mayfield Accurate Baker Mayfield just takes time but also knows when to give it to the football.
You gotta find that healthy, healthy balance.
Um, I think if you could do that and there is no way that I mean, this often looks bad and there's no way that we question this offense going to Week four.
But it's going to be tough, because if you look inaccurate, if you looked like he couldn't get rid of the ball in time against the Jet, who were down, quite a few defensive players and I didn't have the best event to begin with, um, it it's gonna be tough against change.
Does that one again with Aaron, Donald, Dante Fowler, Marcus tears.
I mean, the list goes on and on.
It's a cute elite still there.
I can't I can't remember he's still there or not.
But I mean, either way, the defense that the endive Baker Mayfield gotta learn toe.
Just find that healthy balance of getting rid of the bowl in taking your time, not forcing.
So it's gonna be an interesting game if I have to give a prediction.
I have to give a prediction.
I very rarely take the Browns to lose, but this is gonna be They're gonna have to be one that I say.
I don't think we take this.
Um, just because there are still so many questions, as far the offense goes, uh, defense looked disciplined for the first time ever.
Um, so I don't know if we pull this one off or not, but I'm not saying it's gonna be a close one.
I say, uh, the defense doesn't support you much.
Er, the er the Rams offense isn't score too much.
Um, so I'm going to say Rams 24 and the clown seven 24 17.
That's what I think.
Um, go B J as a touchdown.
Continue to have a cabbage, have a great start to a season with brown.
Um, I think I think that they're gonna they're gonna look at Titan tape, and they're gonna realize what they after the rams are gonna look at that Titan shapes, and they're gonna realize what they have to do with the run game with screens with just the way that the Titans completely destroyed us.
I think they could do a lot of that with Todd Gurley, and it could definitely hurt us because our run defense has never been that great.
Um, I understand that our defense line is amazing, and that's why the Tennessee, I mean, I don't want to see amazing.
They have the talent to be amazing a CZ, long as they can see discipline.
But our defensive line is pretty good.
So I think that that's why when you want, when you go back and watch the Tennessee Titans, you see them run those screen, that one screen for 75 yards.
But you're Henry.
I think that you're gonna see a lot of screen on Sunday night for the Rams, because not a bad play to call when you got one of the better defensive lines coming at you.
So it's gonna be, uh, it's gonna be an interesting thing.
Like I said, 20 I said 2024 17.
I think that's what I said.
So that's that's my prediction.
24 17 B. J has a touchdown.
Um, I'm gonna say the Browns get their first defense touchdown of the year in this game? No, I think that's a possibility.
Um, Brown get their first defense of touchdown.
That's my prediction is O N O V j Touchdown Browns, defensive touchdown and a field goal by the Sea bass.
No, that's not it.
We can't We can't take Sebastian, Jake, But Austin cyber, um I think that it's gonna be It's gonna be a good game.
It's gonna be It's one of those games where the Browns grounds us Browns fans air going into it, thinking we have a shot, but not a big one.
And that's something that it sucks, because now we're getting into the top part of our schedule.
Whereas we got the Rams 40 Niners, A lot of people didn't expect him to be great, but they started off to Oh, no, the Ravens.
They started off to invoke rain, and they haven't played anybody good at all.
They still start off to another bobsledding cheese, which I hope the chief's rock them.
Dude, I do because I cannot stand Ravens fans that can't be in the Ravens as the Browns food.
And I've said this multiple times and I'll say it again right now.
I hate the Ravens more than I hate Pittsburgh Steelers.
Because the Ravens took our franchise, the Ravens run their mouths for no reason.
Ravens air trashed.
The Ravens have been nothing but an average team.
I mean, I have no room to talk because I'm a brown sand, but they've been nothing but an average team ever since they came into the and, uh yeah, I understand that.
They want what? Two Super Bowls? Great.
I'm just saying I don't like the ravens.
I've never liked the Ravens.
So you got the Rams 40 Niners Ravens, and then I believe it's the Patriot earned the Seahawks and then the teacher.
Definitely going to be pretty tough coming into the flat.
Be next 45 games.
But then you gotta look at their last.
Um, I'm not sure how the last eight goes, like in order, but I know the bills, bills, dolphins, uh, Bangles twice.
You got the Steelers, uh, dealers twice Ravens one more time and then the Cardinals in the Broncos.
So our last 89 games aren't aren't super crazy Hard game.
Um, I've said this before, and I think it's still a possibility, depending on how help Pittsburgh looks, how we look against Baltimore.
But winning the last eight games this year is definitely a possibility, because when you're playing, teams that aren't aren't great as long as we can shell.
And as long as we can beat the teams that were supposed to, this Brown team should make the playoffs.
And I I'm just saying that the team has the talent.
Baker Mayfield literally came out, came out last year and looked amazing.
She could go back to his old self.
I think this team will be just fine.
Um, again, it's gonna be a fun seat. I'm excited.
Um, a lot of you guys may know me as a diehard Browns fan.
I used to love the cap a lot.
I still do love the cares a lot, but I my love for the n b.
Has fallen out just because of all the drama.
I mean for you NFL fans.
The, uh, the whole baby situation is just another Monday in the n B.
I mean, that's that's how it is.
I don't love drama like that.
I've never really loved drama like that.
And that's exactly why I don't like the NBA.
So I'm just gonna keep giving you guys the fantasy football advice.
Uh, keep talking guys about the Browns and the rest of the N S.
L stay focused on that, and I'll talk to you guys soon.
