What's up, fellas? Let me bring up my who am I looking for? Oh, yet, Jeff.
Okay, Donna, 2nd 1 minutes.
Alright, here we go.
We brought it up.
All right, So what's up, guys? Thank you all for joining.
So I'm sure you guys already know by now, but Antonio Brown got released by the New England Patriots.
Um, I don't know if it's a much of a surprise.
It's more like a little bit shocking, I guess, because, you know, people were thinking that that their patients, we're going to kind of right out with the whole thing with Antonio Brown and the whole allegations While the NFL investigates, I thought that they were going to ride it out, but apparently, you know, they're just I guess they're going to allow the NFL to do their investigation in all that and just handle the whole court case and everything.
So it's, um I don't know.
It's it's It's a crazy situation because a B is still even to this day.
Even with all the craziness off the field, all the distractions, all the you know, the diva nous the need for attention.
He's still one of the top receivers in this league, many would argue the best receiver in this league.
So it's just crazy, man.
I mean, I really do think he needs a lot of help with his mental health, but that's a whole other topic.
But anyway, yeah, it's it's crazy.
And unfortunately, I think that his career's over.
I don't know if anybody else is going to take a chance on him.
It's just too much of a distraction right now.
Um, you know, teams don't want to deal with that.
And also, I'm pretty sure teams, we are going to allow the NFL to conduct their investigation.
And, you know, unfortunately, I think this is gonna be the end of Antonio Brown.
I think we're not going to see any more of him.
So Bill can fix attitude, but he can't fix stupid good point.
Um, yeah, it's It's just it's a bunch of crazy stuff, man.
It's It's something that I didn't expect to happen.
I honestly did not s o.
I'm definitely surprised, but also its it I also kind of talk coming.
If that makes sense, I know doesn't really make sense because it contradicts itself.
But, yeah, it's It's crazy, man.
I mean, you know me is a Ravens fan and some of you guys a Ravens fans as well.
You guys know that we we used to have to go up against Antonio Brown all the time, man, when he was on the Steelers, and we knew his talent.
So, um, it's just crazy now to think that he's probably not gonna be playing on an NFL team anymore.
So I don't know, man, it's It's definitely a crazy situation.
As soon as those text came out, I saw the writing on the wall.
Yeah, man, it just a bunch of crazy stuff happened, man.
It's It was Ah, it was definitely a show, that's for sure that this whole thing could've probably be made into a movie or a show or something, but yeah, quite unfortunate that Antonio Brown did get released by the Patriots.
However, it's the Patriots.
They'll be okay.
You know, it's it's just what they do, you know.
So it's not even a problem.
Um, and interestingly enough, now let's tie that in with the whole Jalen Ramsey thing because people are still waiting to see if he gets traded because now we're not entirely sure of Jalen Ramsey is going to get traded anymore because they did just win Last night, we saw how Gardner Minshew looked.
Everybody's on Gardner, men, shoes, nuts out of nowhere, like he's the best quarterback in the league.
I think part of it is like meaning and stuff, but also it's like just come on anyway.
But yet it's it's funny whatever Gardner men shoot shirt, Minshew mania.
Um, so now, now that they're starting to win and I guess they have a little bit of an easier schedule coming up is Jalen Ramsey still gonna want to be traded? You know, cause I'm pretty sure that the Jags for an office does not want to trade him.
Ah, that's probably why they're asking for such a high price, because they know that teams probably aren't gonna want to give them so much.
Um, because they want to keep him.
So I don't know.
It's it's interesting men.
I think this is gonna be an interesting next few days.
I'm not sure if Jalen Ramsey is going to stay with the Jags.
If he's changed his mind.
You know, when like wins, cure everything.
Man wins can totally just make you forget all your problems.
If you If you just gotta win, then Hey, guess what? We have a chance.
Well, let's keep it going.
Let's let's try to stack wins.
So you know there's a chance that Jalen Ramsey just might end up not getting traded, which would suck because I have always really wanted to trade for him.
But again, I don't know.
I just don't know what's gonna happen with that.
But anyway, let's Ah, I also wanted to bring up the injury report for this week's game against the Chiefs for us.
So the two players that we expected not to play are not gonna be playing, of course.
And Smith still dealing with that knee injury.
He has confirmed out of this game.
So, um, that means our corners have to step up, man, because this is gonna be their biggest test.
They were struggling last week against Collar Murray and even against Ryan Fitzpatrick, there were a few plays there that I did not like, So our corners definitely need to stay a step up.
Anthony Avery it Cyrus Jones.
If he gets some playing time.
Of course, he they just all need to step up.
Man, we need a huge game from the secondary because this is this is a big game man going up against Patrick Mahomes.
And this is a time that they're very vulnerable.
They're dealing with quite a few injuries.
So if there was ever a time to go into Arrowhead and beat the Chiefs, it's right now, man, because they're dealing with injuries.
And, you know, we're also dealing with injuries, But right now, our offense is really hot.
So if we can keep that momentum going, then you know things.
Could you turn out really well for us? But yeah, now is the time to beat the Chiefs in Arrowhead anyway.
So Jimmy Smith is out because of that knee injury. Brendan.
See, I never knew how to pronounce this guy's last name.
The safety Brynden Trawick Trawick.
You guys help me out, man.
I have no idea how to pronounce his name.
I never did, but anyway, he has his elbow injury that I guess he's gonna be out of this game.
He was mostly a special team.
Or so you know, not to concerning.
We have guys that can step up in there.
But aside from that, there were some guys that did not participate in practice like marquees Brown not injury related, I guess.
I guess they're just kind of giving him some time off to really they want him to fully heal, is what it seems like, because even he admitted he's not fully healthy yet and the fact that he's able to do the things he's doing.
But while not being 100% it's pretty damn impressive.
Not injury related, you know, probably a vet day.
Same thing with Pernell McPhee.
They didn't participate.
Mark Andrews did participate, however.
It was limited participation.
He's kind of dealing with a little bit of a foot thing.
But he, of course, is gonna be playing even though he's listed as questionable.
Usually when when you have players that are listed as questionable, they're most likely gonna play, You know? Ah, Patrick Card is also kind of dealing with a little bit of a back issue, but full participation in practice today.
So he's listed as questionable, but that probably means he's gonna play, and then Earl Thomas did have full participation today, so yeah, it's It's just We're pretty much were pretty decently healthy.
Of course, we know we have the injuries in the secondary, which sucks, and it's gonna be It's gonna be tough, man.
Because, like I said, Patrick Mahomes, he doesn't mess around, man, he's crazy.
Um, you know, it's him versus the laws of physics.
Just the shit he can do, man.
It's it's absolutely insane.
So, yeah, I mean, I feel I feel pretty good there.
Let's let's take a look at the Chief's injury report, actually, see if I can find that here on Twitter.
Here we go. Kansas City Chiefs.
Do they have their injury report? Yes.
Here we go. Okay.
God, So embarrassing.
Okay, so Eric Fisher, of course, is gonna be out.
We thought we knew that. He is.
They're starting left tackle.
However, a lot of people are saying that he's just not that good.
So I guess Cam Erving is gonna be stepping in there at left tackle for the chief's.
Um you know Cam Erving? We remember him.
He used to be on the Browns.
I'm not entirely sure how he's gonna perform at the left tackle position for the Chiefs.
I I think he should be fine.
Just because it's Andy Reid, it's Patrick Holmes.
They'll be able to work around it, But I think that should give us a little bit of an advantage in order to be able to get to Patrick Mahomes.
Hopefully, we can get there a lot quicker.
And of course, Tyreek Hill is also outs.
But I think we expected that.
LaShawn McCoy is kind of dealing with a little bit of an ankle injury.
However, he did participate fully today, so he is listed as questionable.
So that probably means he's gonna play.
Damian Williams is out.
That's actually pretty huge because, um, he's kind of like they're receiving back the one that comes out of the backfield.
And sometimes man, like the Ravens defense we get, we get torched by those running backs coming out of the backfield, man, I don't know what it is.
It's not all the time, but it's just like certain game plans that people put put together and then we ended up when they're getting toasted, not so far this season, but I mean, I don't think really many people have tried that on this, so but yeah.
So Damian Williams being out could actually be huge.
I mean, it's not awesome.
I don't wish injury on people, but I'm just saying, like, for for the team, you know, for the Ravens.
Um, but aside from that, it seems like everybody else is healthy.
So that's what we got, Men.
The chief's got some injuries.
The Ravens got some injuries that we're dealing with.
Everybody's dealing with injuries right now.
So now is the time to step up, man, because this is a battle of two top A F C teams.
And tomorrow I'm gonna be doing my pregame stream where I'll go and dive a little bit deeper.
And I'll talk about, you know, just what to look out for what, players to look out for all of that.
I'm gonna be doing a pregame stream tomorrow, so definitely make sure you guys check that out.
But yet I just kind of wanted to bring up the injury report, let you guys know my thoughts on the hole Antonio Brown thing, and before we close out this stream, I kind of wanted to talk a little bit about fantasy Justcause on fantasy Friday.
I guess I'd like to talk about fantasy a little bit for those that care.
I know not many do, but it's all good.
So let me see what's going on.
I have two leagues in my main league.
We're gonna We're just gonna talk about my mainly because I'm going to And I swear to you, I'm really trying hard in this league.
It's a standard league.
And I'm kind of regretting that.
I think I probably should have just gone PPR right? You know, it probably would have been the better better.
Ah, better choice.
So this week I'm going up against Tron.
King Tron. He's on.
He's on Twitter as well.
He also has a YouTube channel.
Um, I believe it's Bank up is the name of his channel.
But anyway, yes, so he he's actually undefeated, too.
Oh, no, I think he's the top dog.
If I'm not mistaken in the league, let me check.
Yeah, so he's the top dog in the league, and he's to know, and I moan, too.
I'm like, second to last.
So this sucks, man.
I'm not gonna have a good game.
Maybe, but anyway, so I'm starting Matt Ryan.
I have Joe Mix and he's coming back.
He's supposed to be healthy.
They go up against Buffalo.
Hopefully, he does well.
Then I got Christian McCaffrey, who didn't do anything last week on Thursday night, which so? So it really disappointed me.
Hopefully, he has bounced back game this week.
They play Arizona and Ah, and then I'm going to start Randall Cobb against Miami because it's Miami.
Let's be honest, Adam feeling.
I guess I'm starting against Oakland.
So what I've been trying to do is I just set my lineup one day, and then I just forget about it because I don't want to over think myself, you know, and think about it too much, because then I feel like you don't play as well.
So, Adam, feeling I'm starting against Oakland.
Jimmy Graham against Denver? Um, I don't know why, but I am So Terry McLaurin at my flex.
Uh, he's been having a good year, even though they're going up against Chicago.
This is why I hate looking at it because then I overthink it.
So then Harrison Bugger starting.
And then the Packers defense.
I'm starting a swell.
Then on my bench I have Andy Dalton, Tariq Cohen, Darren Sproles, D J.
Green, Al, Sean Jeffries, Eckert's and the Ravens defense.
So I'm just hoping, man, I'm hoping, but but my opponent has a pretty damn good team.
Like I said, Tron, he has Lamar Jackson as a quarterback, so I mean, you know, it's probably going to go off.
He's one of the best fantasy quarterbacks, you know.
So then he has Levian Bell who? I mean, the Jets suck.
Let's be honest, they don't really have anything.
Their play calling. It's atrocious.
Just the offense is bad.
The offensive line, uh, you know, it's it's just a shit show over there.
But Levy on Belle is actually still good man, like he was the only one putting in any effort on that offense.
Dalvin cook that he's starting Dalvin Cook that he has been great so far.
This is gonna be a tough game, man.
I don't know. I don't think I can win this one t y Hilton.
He's starting Amari Cooper, Eric Ebron and Austin, Eh? Killer.
And he's not even putting a kicker in there, so I think he feels a little bit cocky.
He's like, You know what? I don't even need a kicker.
And then he has the Vikings defense starting as well.
So it's gonna be a tough matchup for me, man.
I hope I don't go on three.
But the way it looks, I think I might, so that's just sucks.
But anyways, guys, thank you all so much for joining me on today's stream.
I do appreciate it.
And like I said, I'm gonna be doing another stream tomorrow.
It's gonna be the pregame stream will where I'll dive a little bit deeper into the Chiefs and Ravens game.
And you know, I'm excited, man.
I know you guys Air hype.
I'm hyped for Sunday's game.
I can't wait, and I just hope the Ravens win.
Man, I believe we can.
I I truly do believe we can get this victory.
So, anyways, guys, I'll see in the next stream.
