00:00:06
what's going on.
00:00:07
And, as always, I'm your host Dan Mater, and this is the live stream going on now on SportsCastr for the Week 11 preview Part one, which is Thursday night games and these early Sunday afternoon games we're gonna talk about today.
00:00:26

00:00:55
And of course, we have a lot to get to today we have four tines on by this week, not quite as many as there was a week ago, so we have a lot.
00:01:02
We have to get into some players we have to check out again that we would not normally use in most of our lineups and most of these situations.
00:01:10
But for the most part, I have to say that we do have a lot of good value, a lot of good key, famously players available to you guys this week.
00:01:19
Now, of course, gonna go over who are Some guys Look out for some guys, the stream as them guys to kind of stay away from.
00:01:25

00:02:21
We have so much to go ahead and get into, so we're gonna go ahead, jump right into it now, as it really isn't a latest news segment.
00:02:29
So the first game up that we want to talk about is the Thursday night matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns are first up on the piste rich dealers side of the ball.
00:02:39
James Connor is expected to play in the night's matchup.
00:02:44
So that's what we have going on there.
00:02:46
That's the big thing there.
00:02:47
So he's No, this is great news for everyone involved.
00:02:50
Who has James Connor? I've been holding on to jail in stainless.
00:02:53
He was back to being his.
00:02:54
You know, his pant cuff backup role, where you will get sprinkled in a little bit, but not enough, I believe, to be a flex play.
00:03:01
Yes, They've been leaning heavily on the run.
00:03:03
Yes, James Connor has shown that he has the unfortunate status of kind of going Matt Brita on us and not actually making it through all 4/4 over the last few weeks.
00:03:14
But I do expect him to get to go through out this match up, and I do think as a result, Jalen Sama's will not be a guy that you can play in the flex position.
00:03:21
In case you're wondering now, the main guy we want to talk about here ju juice Ms Schuster.
00:03:26
At this point, Judas Misters there can no longer be considered a wide receiver to.
00:03:30
Not that many of you who have had judges missions there were considering him in that range to begin with.
00:03:36
But instead we have to start viewing him more as a wide receiver, three low and wide receiver.
00:03:43
Three more of a high end wide receiver.
00:03:44
For that, you kind of play based on match up.
00:03:47
And this isn't a matchup that I liked.
00:03:49
You just misses the wrong Remember, we have Dens Award, who's gonna be playing an instant in this game, so there's not a lot to like here.
00:03:56
Mason Rudolph hasn't really been aggressive going down the field honestly, This is one of those situations where if you have a better match of a better wide receiver, I would play the other half.
00:04:10
It's a real shame.
00:04:11
Yes, most trade deadlines are next week, but I don't think you can sell him for anything.
00:04:16
Even his name isn't well established enough to this point that he would name alone, get you some value in return.
00:04:23
Unless you sold him for a bottom of rocks.
00:04:26
That's pretty much it.
00:04:27
Look, you can't get anything for him.
00:04:28
You're going to have to keep him.
00:04:30
Just play him based on the match ups, when you have a plus one that you have the Dolphins next week so that maybe again, you want to go ahead and check out.
00:04:37
But outside of that, there's really not a whole lot you can take away from our excuse me that all the Dolphins in a few weeks.
00:04:43
I had a Dolphins in a few weeks.
00:04:45
They have some other key matchups coming up.
00:04:46
I was think about the Cleveland Browns there for a second, my mistake.
00:04:49
But yes, they have some matches coming up where you will be able to play him again.
00:04:52
This is A.
00:04:55
You have voice, but that's on leeway.
00:04:59
I'm playing Jews, Mr.
00:05:00
And really, frankly, from here on out completely.
00:05:02
Matchup based Vance McDonald ISn't INTERESTING name.
00:05:06
I don't love it.
00:05:07
Cleveland's about middle of the pack when it comes to tight ends.
00:05:10
But we just got word that George Kendall is ruled out for this week. We know awesome.
00:05:15
Hooper's gonna miss, probably the next month.
00:05:17
You're looking for tight ends. The stream.
00:05:19
Vance McDonald, we know at least gets some of the targets.
00:05:22
Should be getting more work as we move along here as he's come back from his injury.
00:05:26
Hopefully, Mason ruffle of to go his way, but he is somebody whose name might be on your waiver wires.
00:05:32
Right now, it might be somebody who wouldn't be a bad pick up, especially in a matchup going against Cleveland Browns, who have two good corners.
00:05:38
I don't expect one for Junior and Schuster.
00:05:39
I don't expect much from Deonte Johnson in this game, Vance McDonald and the running backs.
00:05:44
Maybe the guys that Mason Rudolph decides to go to in the checkdown games of your PPR league.
00:05:49
I think Master Donald is an okay.
00:05:51
Played not one of my favorites.
00:05:52
I don't feel great about it.
00:05:53
I'm not trying to say that.
00:05:54
But what I will say is that he's somebody release has some talent and possibly some opportunity.
00:06:00
I mean, that's really it.
00:06:01
When you talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers, a real shame how far they have fallen since losing Ben Roethlisberger, How much is he needs him and how much fantasy owners really need him.
00:06:10
We'll see what happens next year.
00:06:11
But for this match up outside of James Connor, there's nobody who's really a must play for me on the Steelers side of the ball for the Cleveland Browns.
00:06:18
A little bit of a different matter.
00:06:20
Nick Chubb Still R B one status as he was able to get 20 Kerry's last week.
00:06:26
As long as that continues toe happen, I think he will be okay.
00:06:30
Look, Cream Hunt.
00:06:31
He may actually carved out a role for himself moving forward in the passing game, but they're not going to start taking away. Carrie Mitchell.
00:06:37
I think you saw that last week.
00:06:39
Yes, Cream Hunt might have more of a load, more of a workload, but I would not trust it.
00:06:47
Overly too much.
00:06:49
Look He's Nick Chubb has been too good, and barring an injury, I just don't see him losing very many carries.
00:06:54
Two.
00:06:55
Cream hunt.
00:06:56
Now his ability to tackle on a few targets in the passing game might have disappeared.
00:07:00
Now with the appearance of Cream Hunt.
00:07:01
And if you're in a full point, PPR league cream one actually is a viable flex plate to me in this game, Baker Mayfield has been absolutely terrible.
00:07:08
That continued to be true against, um, against the team last week.
00:07:13
But going into this match up here, you have the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have a really good pass rush from playing really good defense.
00:07:21
As a result, I do think cream hunts going to be a key checkdown guy.
00:07:25
That Baker. Maybe it's going to go to pretty often.
00:07:27
We saw last week that he had seven catches in that game, so it's It's It's st I guess.
00:07:35
The Buffalo Bills.
00:07:36
He had seven catches a similar team with a similar makeup where you can kind of run the ball at them enough if you really want to, but they have such a good pass rush that is going to have to check the ball down.
00:07:46
I do think Cream Hunt as a decent little role in PPR League.
00:07:49
Now, if you're in standard leagues, I don't know if I'm playing Cream Hunt.
00:07:52
If you're in halfway through the are leagues, I would maybe so, considering the flex position when the full point GPR he does possess a decent floor that I think you can go ahead and play him in Odell Beckham.
00:08:02
Now this is a better matchup than he's had for the past three weeks.
00:08:05
That much is true, but it's still not a fantastic matchup by any stretch of the means.
00:08:10
You still have to go against the Steelers.
00:08:12
Stevens has been pretty good.
00:08:13
You still have Baker Mayfield there.
00:08:14
But unlike Judas, Miss.
00:08:16
User, I do think Odell Beckham does present you some upside that you can utilize ability to make plays him.
00:08:25
He has been able to get you five catches for 50 yards in a pretty since the bases.
00:08:28
Nothing to write home about, of course, but as long as he's able to operate with somewhat of a floor from a week to week basis, you know it only takes one play.
00:08:36
There's been a better match than he's had the past few weeks.
00:08:38
I think you can play Odell Beckham, but he still has to be considered more of a wide receiver.
00:08:43
Three.
00:08:44
So he's another guy.
00:08:45
He's not a must star for me this week, but I just don't see you having too many better options than him heading into this week as well.
00:08:51
So something else to kind of keep in mind there when you're looking at what do I do with Odell Beckham Jr.
00:08:57
So don't overplay him.
00:08:58
But if you don't have a better match up, you could do worse than Odell Beckham.
00:09:01
I have more hope for him than, say, judges and issues.
00:09:03
They're moving forward.
00:09:05
Uh, I talked about David and joking and wait for my report.
00:09:07
He's not gonna play this week, obviously, but he's somebody that I just want to throw out there in case you guys did not pick him up in your waiver wires in case you're he's still sitting out there, which is the likely scenario right now, being that he's still about a week or so away.
00:09:19
He's, um, is awesome.
00:09:25
Hooper's out for a month that somebody could pick up as a long term season stash that could maybe pay off for you as we get into the playoff runs here.
00:09:33
Moving forward Baker Mayfield as I've completely downgraded him.
00:09:38
We're talking about the wide receivers.
00:09:39
It's no different.
00:09:40
He's still not a streaming quarterback, and the Steeler defense, I think, is going to feast on him.
00:09:44
They are actually a good streaming option for me here.
00:09:47
Heading into Thursday night's matchup, same could be said of the Cleveland Browns.
00:09:51
I do think James Conner couldn't find some success running against them in the football because they have been gassed as of late.
00:09:56
But they were able to play pretty well against Buffalo, who want run the football, either able to pass rushers.
00:10:03
They're able to get some turnover here.
00:10:04
So Cleveland Browns, actually on a bad streaming defense if you're looking for one there as well.
00:10:09
So our first Sunday afternoon game that we want to talk about here is the Dallas Cowboys and the short list executor Ellie back the shape.
00:10:28
Get back to his RV one status heading into this week.
00:10:31
I don't expect it to be any problems with that happening so that you were gonna bench Ezekiel Elliott, but I do think go back to having our B one expectations heading into this match up against Troy.
00:10:41
Mari Cooper did not practice today, but we are expecting him to be able to play right, so you didn't practice great game.
00:10:50
Now, Yes, he's probably gonna be shadowed by Darius Slay, so I wouldn't expect himto have insane game that he had a week ago.
00:10:56
I do expect him to be a top five wide receiver, but I still expecting the finishes of wide receiver one.
00:11:01
I don't think it's going to change any time soon, so just kind of keep that in mind as well.
00:11:05
Marchal Gallop might be the guy this week.
00:11:08
He had a decent game last week.
00:11:09
70 yards touchdown did pretty well for himself.
00:11:12
But I expect that to continue.
00:11:13
If Darius Lee's gonna shadow Marquis Cooper all over the field, there's no reason to think that Michael Gallop won't be able to take advantage in his match ups, especially since Dallas should be able to throw in this game.
00:11:25
You gotta hope, though, if you're Dallas, you actually want or on soon savior Dallas.
00:11:29
If you are, definitely want Matthew Stafford to play on the other side.
00:11:32
You want Detroit's offense to be able to put up points because being able to do so to keep that game close, to keep them having to be aggressive for 4/4 is going going to be the key.
00:11:41
Quite frankly, for Michael, Gabby would have that high floor of a game.
00:11:45
If Driscoll winds up playing, then you obviously still a star Amaury Cooper respect to me because it could be turning into a situation where Dallas has to run the ball and they don't have to do a lot in the passing game nor the win this one.
00:11:57
So it's kind of something to keep in mind that extra factor that maybe you weren't thinking about previously too extra guys are taking in all the variables.
00:12:07
I want to make sure that you guys know exactly what you're getting yourself into in any given week, and I expect that to be the case here.
00:12:14
So you want Matthew Stafford the play.
00:12:17
If you have Michael Gallop, it does.
00:12:19
I would say you go ahead.
00:12:20
You started with no worries as a wide receiver, three with upside that you know it was possible to score and if Darius Lee does have a good game against, um, Are you Cooper? Then you know, Michael gals gonna have a great game on the other side and may still be a good game either way.
00:12:34
So I do like Michael gal there a lot as far as Jason Witten goes again.
00:12:38
I've talked about him last week.
00:12:40
I'm not going to play Jason Witten in any given match up at all.
00:12:43
If he does well, great.
00:12:44
He's not gonna be on my team when he does it, though, because it's gonna be too many games where he goes.
00:12:48
Coup for 15 rather than a catches Brillo The tree lines about side the ball talked about Matthew Stafford a little bit.
00:13:01
He did not practice.
00:13:02
Today is going to be considered a game time decision, but there has been optimism leading into this since high week so far.
00:13:09
Now we are early on the weak, but there's been optimism so far that he's going to be able to find a way to suit up.
00:13:15
Hopefully, that'll be the case because you want to play guys like Kenny Golladay, who I know had a decent game last week.
00:13:21
But it came on one play, and you can't expect that one play that happen every time.
00:13:26
Jeff, you know you can't count on it.
00:13:30
Kenny got.
00:13:31
He's got to be somebody you can go to.
00:13:33
And if he's not really put you in a day for position because with four teams on by the fact that God has been Ah Wai receiver two week in and week out, you need Matthew Stafford in.
00:13:44
It's not a great matchup.
00:13:46
Otherwise so, hopefully Staffer plays the technicality at his wide receiver to status.
00:13:51
Same could be said for Marvin Jones, who's made his way back in because since the volume of the passing game has now tilted that way for the Detroit Lions being that carry on, Johnson has been out and they just haven't been able to find an answer in the running game.
00:14:04
All of a sudden, Marvin Jones Jr has come back to being a wide receiver three with touchdown upside because there's targets to go around now.
00:14:11
Yes, I talk about Danny Amendola.
00:14:13
I do think if Stafford plays and as its its effort place, he could be a full point p PR guy that you could go to in effect position if you're hindered by buyer, hindered by injuries.
00:14:24
I'm not gonna love the play, but there does stand to reason, at least to these Detroit receivers will have a decent game and he could be one of those guys and somebody you could take a shot on.
00:14:32
Reasonably speaking.
00:14:35
Four.
00:14:36
Ty Johnson. He's working through concussion protocol.
00:14:38
He did not practice today, so it's usually not a great sign because usually want to see these guys practicing on Wednesday.
00:14:43
Don't take contact on Wednesdays when they're going through concussion protocol, but if they're out there, even a limited capacity is usually a sign that they're turning in the right direction for that week.
00:14:52
He didn't practice.
00:14:53
It doesn't mean he definitely won't play this week, but it doesn't mean you have to make other adjustments.
00:14:57
JD McKissick, especially a PPR league, is actually a decent little flecks play this week is a decent R B three to maybe have on your team.
00:15:05
He was able to score last week was able take advantage of Ty Johnson not being in, but I would this week, going into the full week is possibly being the starter from the get go Yeah, I second he worked in the passing game.
00:15:17
He's going to have a high floor for you, especially talking half point leagues.
00:15:22
He's somebody.
00:15:23
You complain you're flexes because he's somebody's gonna get an abnormal amount of touches for somebody in his position.
00:15:29
So I do like J D.
00:15:30
Because it quite a bit this week is, well, Tedy Hawkinson.
00:15:33
A lot of people are gonna talk about him, right? Because we don't know we have the tight end woes or just astounding to me.
00:15:39
Frankly, at this point, TV Hawkinson is somebody you can play, and I don't feel great about it.
00:15:46
Look, the biggest thing here that we have to take in consideration right is because with when you're talking about a guy like TJ Hawkins, and he has not been able to take advantage of his opportunities, he's been targeted in the red zone.
00:15:59
He's been targeted more so than most tight ends throughout the year, but between drops not running great routes, he's just somebody who's been unreliable, to say the least Now.
00:16:10
I don't expect that to continue forever, especially not in the future of his career, but be given the site and situation you want.
00:16:16
Guys just have opportunities to score.
00:16:18
He is our guy.
00:16:19
I don't in a league where if Stafford and this is a staffer played a lot of this is contingent on staffer plank, but in the lead, in a situation where you're just looking for a tight and have a chance at a touchdown.
00:16:30
Dallas not being the greatest match up in the world, they could put some emphasis on the outside wide receivers leading you to have the lead Mrs score.
00:16:40
So if you're looking for more tight ends, have a chance to score.
00:16:42
That's him.
00:16:43
He has an incredibly low floor, though she just understand that before making that decision.
00:16:47
Making that movie next game won't talk to you about Jackson Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts Nick Foles.
00:16:55
Welcome back, for better. For worse.
00:16:57
I have been a big time advocate That I am was not for Nick Foles taking over starting job.
00:17:03
Now it's hard to argue after governments who played so poorly in London against Houston and headed into should suddenly erase everything.
00:17:13
Garter.
00:17:14
Vince, you did government.
00:17:15
You played really well and he actually was finishing inside the top 12 more times, not from a fantasy aspect, and the offense, for the most part, have been doing pretty well.
00:17:26
It's been the defense hasn't quite lived up to expectations, and now they don't have Jalen Ramsey.
00:17:30
We don't really expect them to look.
00:17:34
What does Nick Foles do for the wide receiver? Because that's all that really matters.
00:17:37
At the end of the day, right? Because D.
00:17:38
J.
00:17:39
Shark has been a wide receiver to Devi Westbrook's been a guy who's been working his way up as work himself back into wide receiver three flex territory.
00:17:46
So what is this going to do for this offense? Well, the game plan doesn't change much, Um, especially considering the fact that they brought in John the phobia has been the offense a coordinator.
00:17:56
So what they've been doing offensively, schematic wise is not gonna change.
00:17:59
Now.
00:18:00
He doesn't possess the mobility of a gardener.
00:18:02
Mention, which is why I think Nick Foles in him of himself is not a fantasy option for you guys this week.
00:18:07
Going to the Colts.
00:18:08
It's a tough matchup.
00:18:10
He's not mobile enough.
00:18:11
You're totally leaning on.
00:18:12
His arm is not a good offensive line, which I think is going to show up to be more, even more of a factor this week, with no gardener mention to be able to buy himself time than it would normally speaking with this Jackson Jaguar offense and gentle So there's all things have taken a consideration.
00:18:28
Why don't have Nick Foles a streaming option at quarterback? What does he do for the wide receivers? We don't have much of a sample size to go off of when it comes to the Jaguars, right? All we know is that the entire summer heading into the season, DD Western was by far the guy he had the most report with.
00:18:46
Now Nicole has been back a practice for a couple of We'll see if he was able to develop a relationship with D J chart in that time.
00:18:52
Get on the same page with him is his guy.
00:18:57
And DJ Shark is just secondary to that, because here's the problem.
00:19:00
The Jackal Jaguars offense is not a juggernaut.
00:19:03
Offense is not.
00:19:04
A team of puts up a ton of points, so you figure on most most cases most weeks it's gonna be one wide receiver who's able to perform off expectations and a game against the Colts.
00:19:16
I don't like this game to be truly high scoring, either.
00:19:18
I think there's gonna be a lot of running defense of play involved, so it may only be one wide receiver was able to take advantage without having much of a sample size Right now, I trust that Dede Westbrook is going to be worked in throughout this game, more so than D J chart on D Day chart.
00:19:35
There's no doubt about it.
00:19:36
He became a go to guy.
00:19:39
He became a guy that nobody was paying attention to and developed into somebody who very well may be a star from here and great.
00:19:48
So far this season, he's a jump ball guy.
00:19:51
Nick Foles, typically speaking, doesn't throw a ton of jump balls.
00:19:54
You lose usually looks for that guy gets more separation, Which is why I think Dede Westbrook will be the guy this week, but it's kind of a wait and see factor that could easily change.
00:20:03
We didn't know deejay chart was going to be this good coming into this season, so maybe some of that changes, but a lot of it's up in the air right now.
00:20:12
My whole thing would be that hopefully you don't have to trust Jaguars.
00:20:16
Why receiver? This weekend, you kind of play the wait and see game, but most likely you're not.
00:20:20
In that scenario, I think you can play.
00:20:22
D did Shark as a wireless high and wide receiver three and flex play.
00:20:25
I think the same could be said for Dede Westbrook.
00:20:27
I think both of these guys can be in your lineups, not on the same team.
00:20:31
Of course, if you have both of them, I don't know why you would torture yourself that way.
00:20:34
But if you had both Dede Westbrook.
00:20:38
But I think if you have both, if you have these guys all throughout your fantasy teams, I think you can play both these guys as flex buddies heading into this week and then kind of play the wait and see.
00:20:48
But there's gonna be a lot of questions to be answered heading into this matchup.
00:20:52
Letter for net should be great.
00:20:53
I mean, he's gonna keep getting his workload.
00:20:55
This isn't a great matchup with you. Figure.
00:20:57
With Nick Foles first coming back, you expect him to be a little bit rusty.
00:21:00
You expected to lean on the running game So I think letter for Net has a great floor like he normally does.
00:21:05
Hopefully, coming out of the bye week, they're able to figure out some of the world's.
00:21:09
They've had the goal line situation and he's able start scoring touchdowns.
00:21:12
There's no reason.
00:21:13
Well, he shouldn't have Maur.
00:21:14
There's no reason the worldwide, if he doesn't keep getting the opportunities that he has been getting, that he shouldn't find a way to score.
00:21:20
So better days, I think, are actually ahead for letter for net As we move into the playoff push and four f Y i dd westward practice in full today, he will be good to go on Sunday for the Colts.
00:21:31
Silent ball Joey percent practice in full.
00:21:33
He's going to be back.
00:21:35
Thank goodness, because T.
00:21:36
Y Hilton probably won't be.
00:21:38
He didn't practice it all today.
00:21:39
We still don't know exactly what his timetable is going to be.
00:21:42
Yes, he's still considered question all for this week.
00:21:44
He hasn't ruled out it's still early on, but I'm not expecting him to see him be back.
00:21:49
So the good thing about Jacoby Recep coming back is Zach Pascual is somebody that you might be able to play in the flax and PPR league.
00:21:56
The balls gotta go somewhere.
00:21:58
Gonna have to be Zach Pascoe, I think is gonna be number one guy.
00:22:00
And being that Brian Horror would be out, you actually have a chance for him to be able to do something.
00:22:05
Let's hope Anyway, Eric Ebron.
00:22:08
Yeah, statistically had an okay.
00:22:10
Game also had a lot of drops.
00:22:12
But the fact is, against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only true red zone threats are Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle.
00:22:19
Given the title situation, I think Air Gabe runs actually, not just a streaming option, but probably a top and streaming option coming after waver our port.
00:22:27
You're not gonna feel great about it.
00:22:29
I don't feel great in telling you that.
00:22:30
But way the cars falls away, the numbers go.
00:22:34
That is looking like a real possibility that he is going to be a top streaming option for you this week.
00:22:39
He's somebody that I think if you had all snooper, you had George Kendall.
00:22:42
He's a likely scenario that he could be the best height and that you could pick up in play this week.
00:22:47
It's not gonna be great.
00:22:48
Not telling you will be Marlon.
00:22:49
Matt typically, historically does not have great games against Jacksonville Jaguars.
00:22:54
Having said that, you can't bench Marlon Mack.
00:22:56
He's been an RV to even last week. We didn't have a great game.
00:23:00
He still had 19 carries.
00:23:01
He still had a four for you.
00:23:02
So you just know he's not gonna give you much in the passing game.
00:23:05
You're hoping that he scores, but he's been an RV to you.
00:23:08
Might be more of a Lohan RV to playing Jackson Jaguars, but you can't bench him by any shots of the means.
00:23:13
Not that I think most of you were going to just a quick tidbit on the Colts.
00:23:17
Devin Funches was designated to return from IRC.
00:23:20
Still, a few weeks away from that can actually happen.
00:23:23
But just to give you an idea of you've been holding onto Zack passport, maybe even playing him a little bit with the mixture going on a couple weeks down the road against the playoffs, don't think Zack Pass was gonna be somebody that you can plug him play in a wide receiver.
00:23:36
Four riders here.
00:23:37
Five desperate situation.
00:23:38
If you found yourself hurting and injuries, you know when we get the playoffs, there's no more bye weeks or anything like that.
00:23:43
But you still might have some injuries that you're working out.
00:23:46
Just kind quick.
00:23:47
F Y I for exact Paschal owners moving forward next game I want to talk about No, I don't really want to talk about this game, but we have to talk about this game.
00:23:55
The Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins.
00:23:58
It's gonna be a boring game is gonna be bad.
00:24:01
It's probably like a 17 to 10 game look.
00:24:04
The Buffalo Bills defense, I think, is too good for the Miamis newfound competitive offense to really do that Well, I think if you have to, you can still play Devante Parker as a wide receiver. Three.
00:24:16
Purely based on volume because I don't love imagine he's gonna see true Davis White at least half the time.
00:24:22
The good news is, the Buffalo Bills don't shadow, so the whole fleet of Dolphins will be smart enough to move about the Parker at the other side of the field.
00:24:29
But no one ever accused Dolphins of being smart this season, so we'll see what happens.
00:24:33
I expected to be at least half the time based on volume you complain was a wide receiver.
00:24:37
Three.
00:24:38
He has been the guy that go to in the red zone, so he just has that floor that you can play him on.
00:24:43
But it's not a great matchup.
00:24:44
And I hope hope you have better options.
00:24:47
Obviously. Writing dispatches.
00:24:48
Not a streaming quarterback.
00:24:49
So stay away there.
00:24:50
Campbell eyes.
00:24:52
He could get 30 carries this game.
00:24:54
I don't know if I'd care.
00:24:55
I know a lot of people looking at this.
00:24:57
Hey, but for the Bills, they've been gash in the running game over the past few weeks.
00:25:01
Now it looks acceptable in that area.
00:25:03
It has.
00:25:04
I don't think it matters where Kalen Blodgett.
00:25:06
You're talking about a guy who had 20 carries last week for 40 yards.
00:25:09
I mean, if you play Caleb Lodge one, you have to be either ra***ed by injury or had got hit hard by this bye week, too.
00:25:19
You are praying to whoever it is that you pray to.
00:25:22
This guy falls in the ends out because as the only way you're gonna get some value out of him.
00:25:28
So look, hopefully going to get volume, he's gonna be the starter cannibalized the end zone if you're gonna play him this particular week on the bill. Side the ball.
00:25:41
Kevin Singletary.
00:25:42
I'm playing you with confidence I know is disappointing last week.
00:25:45
Yes, Frank Gore is not going to go away, but we knew that the more important thing is that Devon Singletary is now officially getting more touches on a week to week basis than Frank or moving forward.
00:25:54
That's all you can really look for.
00:25:55
He's involved enough in the passing game at the fact that Frank War will take carries away from him doesn't hinder him too severely, especially when you're talking about plus matchups.
00:26:05
There's a big time plus match up.
00:26:07
I think Devon secretary is a great chance to break a big one in this one.
00:26:11
He's gotten.
00:26:12
He's more of an RV to To me, this week is great flex play, but he's actually, I think, going to finish an RV to status heading into this week.
00:26:18
So I love Devon.
00:26:19
Secretary John Brown continued to play him as a wide receiver, three with big play potential.
00:26:24
He's been targeted enough each week, getting about 5 to 7 targets on a week to week basis regardless of the match up, examing Howard.
00:26:30
We're not exactly sure if he's going to be back this week or not, But even if he is, he's not somebody who's scared you this season.
00:26:37
Yes, the Dolphins were playing more competitive as of late. It don't care.
00:26:40
John Brown is enough of a guy who's been getting worked in enough.
00:26:42
That he can play is a wide receiver, three for you.
00:26:45
I know people are gonna ask me out cold easily.
00:26:48
He kind of falls in that category of Jason Witten to me, not not quite as bad.
00:26:51
Not quite that, but still a guy that you're not gonna be on my team.
00:26:55
You're not going to die.
00:26:56
I count on whenever he does well is coming.
00:26:59
It's a good and complete fluke because you're dealing with Josh Allen, whose only complete just over 50% of his passes.
00:27:05
And it also has to be in situations where the built actually have to throw the ball.
00:27:09
Do you really see the Bills having to throw the ball on this one? Do you really not see them being able to control the game through their defense and through their run game Onley one wide receiver is gonna be fantasy relevant this week or really, most weeks, it's gonna be John Brown.
00:27:21
Outside of that, I'm not touching anybody else in Buffalo.
00:27:24
Yes, Josh Sounds of streaming option this week, mostly owned.
00:27:27
He's over 50% owned, on average, dropped most of the league's, but he is available in some waiver wires.
00:27:31
If you're looking for a quarterback to stream or if you have been platooning the quarterback position, the Miami Dolphins is a game where you can always, for the most part, stream a quarterback should be able to get you some yards on the ground.
00:27:43
Always a threat to score.
00:27:44
I'm good with Josh Allen as your starting quarterback this week, the Poss possibly be a low in Cuba.
00:27:49
You want Hi M Q B two.
00:27:51
Next game.
00:27:52
Talk about the Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings? Yes, we're going, and it's not like it would get any better, right, because even if Drew lot comes back, who the hell knows where he's at his development? It Vic Vanja has been pretty clear from the start that he is not really to font of where he is, where his game is at as faras correlates the NFL level as faras correlates to actually having to play this guy and trust this guy.
00:28:18
So, yeah, we're probably gonna see Brendan Allen for a while.
00:28:22
And even if he goes, it's not going to improve the situation for Courtland Sutton, which is the only person you really care about.
00:28:29
You can play Courtland Sutton this week against Minnesota Vikings.
00:28:32
This is not second area scares you, and I'm gonna keep saying it every week until people believe me because I still get pushed back on this, which amazes me because the stats are there in front of you.
00:28:40
Over the past six weeks, moves out of Vikings have actually been one of the worst secondaries one the best ones for fantasy wide receivers.
00:28:47
Courting some was a blue score would bring it on quarterback before they had their bye week.
00:28:52
He's really the only guy left.
00:28:53
Go to one of his bases in the passing game.
00:28:55
Noah fans gonna be hit or miss the running backs.
00:28:58
Phillip Lindsay.
00:28:59
They'll dump it down with him and wish Freeman some of the time.
00:29:01
But Courtland sons, who's gonna have to go to brand Alan can only make one read that this is one Reed is on defense.
00:29:07
That was not a secondary should say that scares you.
00:29:09
So, yeah, you can play.
00:29:10
Cortland started as a flax as a wide receiver. Three.
00:29:13
Who has volume? Safe floor capabilities as far as anybody else goes.
00:29:19
Philip Lindsay, I don't love the match up here.
00:29:20
Minnesota hasn't been great for running backs and famous for it.
00:29:24
Especially not really good ones. Trust your RV.
00:29:26
One caliber.
00:29:28
Denver will have to lean on the running game as they always do.
00:29:30
So filled Lindsay, as a result, is at least at least a flex play.
00:29:35
But you're gonna get mixed in with him. Royce Freeman.
00:29:38
I don't think you could play were streaming.
00:29:39
This week is a flex.
00:29:40
So for those of you who are trying to ride it out, kind of ride a committee.
00:29:43
He had been getting into the end zone a little bit more and more.
00:29:46
I truly think there has to be better options for you than Royce Freeman this week.
00:29:50
He has such a low floor, especially if he doesn't catch the ball.
00:29:54
Remember, before they went on that bye week That week alone, Rose firm and not only was not work that involved that much in general as we're used to him seeing, but he was worked in at all in the passing game under with Brandon Allen taking over.
00:30:08
That's something that worries me, especially for his flex appeal moving forward so I wouldn't play worst.
00:30:13
Freeman here.
00:30:14
I would play Phillip Lindsay, but you have to expect him to be more of a high and R B three than an R B two heading into this match up on the Viking side, the ball.
00:30:21
You know who you're going to play gonna place the fund digs.
00:30:24
Adam Feeling didn't practice today.
00:30:27
So as far as we know, Stefan Digs will again be the number one wide receiver.
00:30:30
Yes, he will see Chris Harris.
00:30:32
Yes, you.
00:30:33
Yes, the fund digs has on Lee, you know, hasn't really been able take advantage over the past couple of weeks with no Adam dealing.
00:30:40
He's kind of cooled off after he finally got a midseason hot streak.
00:30:43
But there's still a floor there.
00:30:46
We're talking about a guy who's gonna be the number one wide receiver.
00:30:48
They're still not another receiver on the Minnesota Vikings that really demands the attention of Kirk Cousins on a weekly basis.
00:30:54
Yeah, well, Kron Treadwell has been worked in a little bit more.
00:30:56
We've seen O.
00:30:57
B. C. Johnson be able to fill in for Adam.
00:30:59
Feeling quite well, really, The only guy that is worth talking about outside Stefan digs when it comes to the passing game with somebody I talked about in the waiver wire report.
00:31:07
Collar Rudolph.
00:31:08
You're looking for a tight and has an opportunity score a touchdown.
00:31:11
That's been him.
00:31:12
That's been the guy.
00:31:13
He has gotten quite a few touchdowns over the past few weeks.
00:31:17
He is somebody you can go ahead and stream and have that ability to do so with no Adam deal and he's been a go to guy in the red zone, he's not gonna give you much time. Twenties.
00:31:25
Still expect Ally catches.
00:31:26
Don't expect a lot of yards, but if you're looking for a guy, you're just hoping and praying for a touchdown.
00:31:30
Think Howard Rudolph gives you that this week? Yeah, the Denver Broncos have a decent defense, but because they have next to no offense, I do expect extra possessions for the Minnesota Vikings.
00:31:38
So I do think they're gonna be able to keep their fantasy relevant guy's fantasy relevant even in a tougher matchup.
00:31:43
Salomon Cook.
00:31:44
You know, I can't say enough about the guy.
00:31:45
He's just playing a different speed and everybody else I don't care.
00:31:48
We're going up against Denver Broncos, who have been pretty good against the run for the past month.
00:31:51
He's going to be your RV one of the week, probably 2nd 2 on Lee Christian McCaffrey, like he is almost every single week so far this season.
00:32:00
Kirk Cousins Not streaming option for me.
00:32:02
I do think that pass rush, the Denver Broncos is going to give him some issues.
00:32:05
I don't expect a lot of yards now.
00:32:07
Maybe it's a week like last week.
00:32:08
Maybe he gets you 220 yards but gets you three touchdowns.
00:32:12
That is possible in this game, but I wouldn't town on it.
00:32:18
Quarterbacks, I'm going to stream that have more of an upside when it comes to yardage that have more of an upside when it gets to getting that 300 yard mark is that benchmark.
00:32:26
I try to look for who has that potential When Sherman, quarterback and car cousins doesn't have that potential.
00:32:31
I believe heading into this way against Denver Broncos.
00:32:34
So I would stay away from him, that streaming territory, if you can help it at all for our next matchup.
00:32:40
New Orleans Saints.
00:32:42
Hey, Buck, in years, I think we're gonna get the shootout game that we thought we were going to get between the Saints and the Falcons last week.
00:32:50
Couple things working in.
00:32:51
That's that direction, Right? Marshawn Lattimore out.
00:32:55
We don't know exactly what he's gonna be back, but he's gonna be out.
00:32:57
That means Mike Evans is.
00:32:59
Should have good matchups.
00:33:01
Means Chris Goblin has even in the day, Miss Winston.
00:33:09
I don't care for those two picks.
00:33:11
He's almost guaranteed 300 yards a game.
00:33:14
He's almost guaranteed to have sounds of game, so you can throw two interceptions.
00:33:18
If you're gonna give me three yards and two touchdowns, you're going to be a top 12 quarterback.
00:33:22
Plain and simple.
00:33:23
James Winson is definitely somebody I play this week without a doubt, especially no Martian Lattimore.
00:33:30
So I definitely think you can play all of your Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
00:33:32
I think you can play Ronald Jones.
00:33:34
The good news of what the reports.
00:33:35
I've been able to get so far out of town, they can't have been that Ronald Jones did not put himself in the doghouse for that horrendous fumble last week.
00:33:43
It was bad, because if you watch the replay or if you missed that game, he wasn't even touched.
00:33:49
The ball just came flying out of his hand.
00:33:52
He didn't put himself in doghouse.
00:33:53
So in fact, if anything, the you know that's too, and we're gonna get even more involved in the passing game.
00:34:03
Okay, great.
00:34:05
Bruce, Look, he he got put the dog has a little bit that game because Peyton Barber came in, got the goal line work.
00:34:10
That's why they both wound up with 11 carries each last week.
00:34:13
But you're not really looking for Ronald Jones to give you that high production in the Russian game.
00:34:19
It's can't be involved in passing game, and it sounds like they're pretty much betting on that.
00:34:25
And in this magic is New Orleans Saints.
00:34:27
You don't really care what they give you in the running game because you don't expect them to give you much.
00:34:31
In the running game against one of the top rush defense is in the NFL.
00:34:34
Can he catch the ball of the back field? That's going to be Ronald Jones.
00:34:37
I think you can play him specially PPR league.
00:34:39
But I think you can play him as a low on Darby, too, even against the Saints.
00:34:43
Because I think he's going to have that floor.
00:34:45
We're gonna look to dump the ball off to him again.
00:34:47
They want of being an easy target for James Winston to go to.
00:34:50
I think he's gonna need some nice, easy target begin in this game.
00:34:54
I think Ronald Jones is gonna be okay.
00:34:56
As you know, volume volume is the name of the game becomes fantasy football.
00:35:00
I still don't love around town metal tools in the rule.
00:35:11
So you know what? Ron Jones? Good.
00:35:13
Okay, especially he's involved in past games.
00:35:15
According to areas, he will be, uh, everyone else to play Evans playing God when you play kind of goes out saying there you don't play O. J. Howard.
00:35:23
I know that was okay.
00:35:25
That's one guy would definitely make sure we mentioned here in the show.
00:35:27
O J. Howard.
00:35:29
I know we got worked in Finally, last week.
00:35:31
I know a lot of people are buzzing.
00:35:33
Oh, leading it traded.
00:35:34
And then the first week that they come back after he's not getting traded, he gets worked in.
00:35:38
I don't care.
00:35:39
First of all, the Saints aren't the best match for tight ends to begin with, and the season forecasters 47 hours a touchdown.
00:35:47
I'm not betting money on that.
00:35:48
O.
00:35:49
J.
00:35:50
Howard's not dreaming option to me at all. Stay away.
00:35:52
Stay far away.
00:35:53
Don't get trapped in the name.
00:35:54
Let someone else make that mistake for you guys.
00:35:57
Now, as we're going through this year, you're watching the SportsCastr Stream.
00:36:01
I know you guys on audio can't do this.
00:36:03
But if you're watching the SportsCastr stream right now, remember at the end of this episode, we are gonna have the mailbag statement.
00:36:08
So if you want to drop a fancy football question there and chat, I will get to you as part of the episode later on, when we're done previewing these games Now, having said that, back to the Saints, Drew Brees, play him, play him.
00:36:20
There is a very likelihood outside of Lamar Jackson running around and Patrick Holmes that Drew Brees is going to finish in the top three quarterback and compete for that number one quarterback spot overall this week, I'd look is Tammy Buccaneers.
00:36:33
I know.
00:36:34
I know the letter Falcons you thought were foreshore.
00:36:37
He was going to go off against them.
00:36:38
I think what he did not do against the Falcons he will do and make up for against Tampa Bay.
00:36:44
Buccaneers with without Without a doubt, Falcons were coming off by Thio.
00:36:49
They looked like they promised play their Super Bowl against the Saints this past week.
00:36:52
I wouldn't be surprised that defense went back to being abysmal against everybody else the rest of the way.
00:36:57
Terry Buccaneers can't cover anyone.
00:37:02
Michael Thomas is going to have a great game, so he had a great game last week.
00:37:05
He might even have a better game this week.
00:37:08
I totally expect double digit catches.
00:37:11
I expect over 100 yards. I expected.
00:37:13
Yeah, it's right over 100 years.
00:37:14
Expected touchdown, I said.
00:37:15
Michael Thomas go absolutely bananas in this game.
00:37:18
Same thing goes for Drew Brees.
00:37:20
Standing goes for album problem.
00:37:24
Camara's son give you in the running game.
00:37:26
That's why I tend to try to stay away from TV's Murray.
00:37:29
This week, even if he's going to carve out a 10 to 12 touch role, which he might have for the rest of the season.
00:37:34
Gets hit by pay Buccaneers.
00:37:36
They are number one run defense right now.
00:37:38
I don't think he's gonna give you a whole hell of a lot.
00:37:40
But tomorrow, in the passing game, I expected to get you somewhere between six and nine catches.
00:37:44
I expected him to get you somewhere between 50 and 90 yards.
00:37:48
Question's gonna be.
00:37:49
Does he score on top of that? But the floor is gonna be there.
00:37:52
He's gonna have those opportunities.
00:37:54
The ball has to go.
00:37:55
Someone besides Michael Thomas sometimes.
00:37:57
And that's gonna be Camara.
00:37:58
More times not, is the second pass catcher.
00:38:01
For those of you are wondering, you know, are the Saints in this matchup going to have a second wide receiver that you can stream? I don't know how you can trust anybody right now.
00:38:08
Does that Second wide receiver would be 10 again, Junior.
00:38:11
But as you've really done enough this season for you to actually feel confident about that, I think there's actually a lot of wide receivers that you can go to this week that you don't stoop that low.
00:38:19
The bottom the barrel.
00:38:21
I will tell you one guy.
00:38:22
I definitely want to see everyone playing as Jared Cook.
00:38:26
Tammy Buccaneers.
00:38:27
The Arizona Cardinals are laughing.
00:38:29
Stocks when it comes to defense, is against the tight end.
00:38:31
Jared Cook's gonna have a great game.
00:38:33
There's absolutely, positively no doubt about it.
00:38:37
Drew Brees is gonna go over 350 yards.
00:38:39
Ah, lot That's gonna go Michael Thomas a lot. It's gonna go.
00:38:42
Alvin Kamara.
00:38:43
You know who else is gonna go to? It's gonna go to Jared Cook.
00:38:45
I think he has a great opportunity to score in this game and you're looking for that 100 yard touchdown performance.
00:38:50
This is the week that he has the possibility for that to happen.
00:38:53
Play Jared Cook everywhere you can.
00:38:56
In fact, I would even go as far as to say is that if you have a good tight end and you have Jared cook on your roster, which is possible such injured cooking your trust, that's how far I would go to say played you cook this week, make sure he's in your lineups.
00:39:14
The great matchup for him next game, not so exciting.
00:39:19
Jets Redskins.
00:39:21
Yeah, it might be.
00:39:25
I don't know what can be worse than the Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins game, but it's going to give it pretty close competition.
00:39:31
We know what the rest of us want to do, right? They want to run the ball.
00:39:33
They want around the clock.
00:39:34
They want to make the game assures possible.
00:39:36
So that way, it doesn't look like they got blown out by much.
00:39:38
But they're playing the Jets, so it might not be a blood no matter what they dio.
00:39:42
We know.
00:39:43
Dwayne Haskins is a starter for the rest of the season.
00:39:45
We know dairies.
00:39:46
Geiss is coming back this week.
00:39:49
We know that Chris Thompson did not practice today, so it doesn't look like Chris Thompson's going to return this week.
00:39:54
They're still waiting for him to come.
00:40:10
Three guys, I think there's for a couple of reasons.
00:40:12
One age Peters has been pretty good.
00:40:14
Bill Callahan loves him.
00:40:16
The second reason is there's guys is first week back from his injury, the last he's only played what, Ah, full game before being injured again for a long stretch in the NFL so far, so we don't know if this guy can hold up.
00:40:29
I think there's a really good chance Adrian Peterson is looking at about 65% at least of the work share.
00:40:34
When it comes to the carries, maybe 70%.
00:40:37
What you will see his guys get worked in the passing game, though I would not play a Redskins running back if I can help it.
00:40:45
Because if you talk to me on Monday and the risk Ines went, you know 50 50 it wouldn't surprise me.
00:40:52
So there's a wide range of outcomes here you're talking about, so hopefully you have better options than the Redskins running game.
00:40:58
But if not, I do think that you can count on Adrian Peterson. Get the carries.
00:41:03
I think guys will get the catches, but how much they're even gonna throw the ball.
00:41:06
I don't know.
00:41:07
20 to 25 times seems to be the Max.
00:41:10
They may throw the ball with Dwayne Haskins with way they're running the team, and it doesn't really seem to matter what the game flow is either.
00:41:17
So, keeping that in mind, I think age Adrian Peterson, the only running back that you can play, and even then I'm hoping you have a better option.
00:41:25
Play Terram Glory in this game, please.
00:41:27
I know everyone's all upset about Dwayne Haskins and the thing that that the college report that these guys were supposed to have has not worked out to the way people wanted it to.
00:41:39
I don't care.
00:41:40
You're playing against the New York Jets.
00:41:42
If you're not going to play terrible Lauren against the New York Jets, Who on earth are you going to play him against for the rest of the season? He might as well not even be on your roster.
00:41:50
If you don't play him this week, play him.
00:41:52
He's a wide receiver three with tremendous upside and on.
00:41:55
Lee takes one play because he's explosive.
00:41:57
You're playing against the Jets, who are terrible, especially the secondary.
00:42:00
Right now, they're so banged up, they don't even have Johnson anymore.
00:42:04
Play Terry McLaurin.
00:42:05
Do not get afraid of Dwayne Haskins playing as a starter.
00:42:10
There's no reason to that wraps it up for the rescue on the Jets side of the ball.
00:42:16
Obviously you have lady on Belle has been great.
00:42:18
You finally scored that.
00:42:23
And the other good news is, is that even though he didn't practice today, it was only because illness and even though he keeps getting these reports that he's banged up on Mondays out of nowhere because he keeps finishing games and all of the money is like, Oh, yeah, you remember the last.
00:42:35
Remember yesterday? Oh, yeah.
00:42:36
That game.
00:42:37
Yeah.
00:42:38
Lady on Bell got banged up that we didn't know anything about it.
00:42:42
Don't worry about it.
00:42:43
Wait. John Bell.
00:42:44
Get his full workload.
00:42:45
He will always have a high floor.
00:42:47
Because of that workload, you're hopefully just continue to get in.
00:42:49
The red zone is a good match up here.
00:42:51
He continues his great matchup.
00:42:53
Stretch here, Really, just to in general, Jamie's a Crowder.
00:42:56
You can also play him, especially in full point PPR.
00:42:58
Right now, he's the Onley Jets wide receiver that is dependable on a week to week basis.
00:43:03
You know he's going to be involved now, whether it's the Mary's Thomas or Robbie Anderson on the other side.
00:43:07
That could be up for grabs, and I wouldn't trust either one of those guys.
00:43:10
I wouldn't play either one of those guys, but you know, James A.
00:43:13
Crowder will play.
00:43:15
He's actually a little bit of touchdown tear.
00:43:16
Now he's had two weeks in a row where he scored.
00:43:20
This is a revenge game for James, the crowd as well.
00:43:23
So if he wasn't already being consistently worked into the offense, there's no reason in my mind why they wouldn't put an extra emphasis on letting him get his revenge on the Washing Redskins in this week.
00:43:33
So I'm definitely playing James a crowd of my lives, especially in full point.
00:43:36
PPR leaks.
00:43:38
I'm not screaming Sam Darnold.
00:43:41
He's had two weeks in a row now where if he was going to be a streaming quarterback, he should have been and he should have been a top end guy and both weeks in a row, he finished with less than 2050 yards and one touchdown, not to mention turnovers to come with that.
00:43:54
I'm not playing Sam Donaldson.
00:43:56
Streaming option now.
00:43:57
Tight end position.
00:43:59
Ryan Griffin.
00:44:00
Yeah, go ahead, pick him up. Play him.
00:44:02
He's got a high floor.
00:44:03
He's been worked in.
00:44:04
He has.
00:44:05
He's been quietly having a pretty could season with no Chris for non.
00:44:10
There he's done for the year.
00:44:12
Brian Griffin somebody you can plug and play and know that.
00:44:14
At least he's gonna have a pulse for you.
00:44:16
He's gonna be an option in the red zone.
00:44:18
He actually has a floor that he won't.
00:44:20
He won't goose you.
00:44:22
He won't.
00:44:23
He's been worked into much to goose you so you can pick up in play.
00:44:25
Ryan Griffin's actually be one of my top end streaming tight.
00:44:28
End's going into this week, believe it or not.
00:44:32
So now it's stick.
00:44:33
We go back to the NFC South, we have the Falcons, we have the Carolina Panthers and we have a lot of questions per usual.
00:44:41
But on the Falcon side, the bullet they got, they got decimated by injury.
00:44:45
Who? Austin Hooper gone for a month? Devante Freeman.
00:44:48
Definitely out this week, maybe two weeks.
00:44:51
Sounds like he wanted having a pretty mild midfoot spring, which is good news, offered von Freeman owners.
00:44:57
He's definitely missed this week, though.
00:44:59
I know I know.
00:45:00
What's his face? Dan Quinn said that he's gonna be a long shot.
00:45:03
The play he's not even an option play.
00:45:06
So maybe Brian Hill mine.
00:45:08
Everyone got on the waiver wire report.
00:45:10
Really Probably number one guy on everyone's waiver wire reports this week without a doubt. Play him.
00:45:15
He's in a position right now where he could be actually looking at 20 plus touches heading into this match up.
00:45:20
And the Carolina Panthers have actually been another team that, as of late, have been getting gashed in the running game of the middle.
00:45:26
Well, as Falcon's often over one storm is going to be back this week or not yet, but they are getting healthy across that offensive line.
00:45:33
They are playing a little bit better.
00:45:35
Matt Ryan didn't practice today, but he is expected to play on Sunday.
00:45:38
So no worries, really.
00:45:40
There Julio Jones even have the Which brings me to my next point with Muslim from point.
00:45:50
We have to talk about when talking about.
00:45:51
The fact is, this is Calvin Ridley play.
00:45:54
Calvin Ridley.
00:45:55
Play up is not a second area scares you in Carolina Panthers.
00:45:59
No more awesome Hooper.
00:46:00
Now here's what I Here's what I will say before I tell you guys that play Calvin Ridley.
00:46:05
If he doesn't do it this week with no Austin Hooper and doesn't take advantage of the fact that he should have way more volume heading his direction now, if it turns out, Russell gauge winds of stealing that that volume, Then I don't know.
00:46:19
There's gonna be a week this season.
00:46:26
That's what it boils down to.
00:46:27
It is that you were dire situation or Calvin really owner moving for it if they can trust him or not.
00:46:32
But there's just no reason in my mind, given his ability, given the lack of options now available to do them outside of Julio Jones, that Calvin really should not re emerged as a high and wide receiver. Three. Lohan.
00:46:44
Why received to potentially? It's there.
00:46:47
It's up.
00:46:48
He didn't have a terrible game last week.
00:46:49
Four catches, 70 yards.
00:46:50
Not great, but not terrible.
00:46:53
He's got to take advantage of the opportunity.
00:46:55
Is there gonna be before him starting this week? I think you can play Calvin Ridley in your lineup this week as your Flex play as your wide receiver, three.
00:47:04
Maybe even in a wide receiver to position if you're hindered by by weeks.
00:47:08
But I think you can go ahead and play, Um, in that scenario as well.
00:47:12
On the painter side, the ball, it's pretty straight forward at this point.
00:47:16
Chris McCaffrey, number one, running back overall having historic season.
00:47:19
You just can't say enough about the guy right now and to go with it, D.
00:47:23
J Oh, he continued to be a guy that you can go to now.
00:47:33
I wish you would find the end zone more.
00:47:35
It really does think, because if he found the end zone, more deejay more be a wide receiver, one for fancy football purposes.
00:47:41
Problem that he runs into is that he's just not that touchdown guy.
00:47:44
They don't go to him in those situations enough, so he's always gonna get you lately.
00:47:49
Seven and nine catches a door, 100 yards.
00:47:52
You can't ask for much more than that.
00:47:54
He is a high end, wide receiver to, and if he does score, he will get you in the UAE receiver one territory and against the Atlanta Falcons.
00:48:00
He definitely has that possibility, given you that Curtis Samuel.
00:48:05
He actually has been scoring.
00:48:07
Believe it or not, the last couple of weeks in D. J.
00:48:10
Moore's place, I guess you could say and he's been having a pretty good season so far.
00:48:13
He hasn't getting targeted.
00:48:14
The in a sneaky shootout game cursed a meal against the land Falcons which is a plus match up again.
00:48:29
Don't take out what you saw this week.
00:48:30
With the Atlanta defense being able to play really well against the Saints offense, don't expect that to happen again.
00:48:36
Degree match up.
00:48:37
I think you could play Kurdish state wide receiver three with upside as well, lower and obviously, but a wide receiver.
00:48:43
Three.
00:48:44
With upside for shore, He's gonna He's gonna have an opportunity for a big play.
00:48:48
So, Curtis, Same with somebody.
00:48:49
I think you can play with some confidence heading into this week, and definitely I like quite a bit in a DEA fest play.
00:48:54
If you're looking to do that this week as well.
00:48:57
Greg Olsen look, given the tight end position, given that he was worked back into the rotation a bit more last week.
00:49:06
If I saw them go to him and target him, it was a plus matchup against Green Bay Packers.
00:49:10
They were a defense that happens to set the pool too tight, and so far this season, stockings were no different.
00:49:15
I think Greg Olsen can be an option for you to pick up in stream now.
00:49:19
I don't want you guys come yelling at me if he wants up, giving you like a to catch performance, because that's still a likely scenario.
00:49:25
Just given how this offense has run and when they don't have to go to Greg Olsen, they haven't necessarily made it an emphasis.
00:49:32
But in a matchup like this, where you're just desperate looking for a tight end Greg Olsen, you could do a lot worse than Greg Olsen.
00:49:37
Let's put it that way.
00:49:38
I need somebody who should be on your radar's if you're in that situation.
00:49:43
The last game that we're gonna talk about in this episode before we get into the mailbag segment is the Houston Taxes and the Baltimore Ravens last early Sunday afternoon.
00:49:52
Gator, we're gonna talk about here.
00:49:54
So we got the Houston Texans coming off a bye.
00:49:56
Sounds like they got healthier coming off that by two.
00:49:58
Will Fuller, back at practice practice and full today, expected, could get her at any given moment.
00:50:07
We all know this is a possibility, but a all of the magic of the Baltimore Ravens, but it only takes one play.
00:50:15
Marcus Peters is going to see quite a bit of DeAndre Hopkins now.
00:50:18
They don't they don't shadow again, but he lines up on that side of the field more times than not, and with willful or back, they actually don't travel Hopkins as much as they do when he's not in the ball game.
00:50:29
They also don't target hockey quite as much when, well, fuller eyes in the ball game.
00:50:33
So I do think he has Why receiver for with upside potential.
00:50:39
And that's why he's not wide receiver three.
00:50:41
He's not going to a wide receiver three until you see it, because even when he had been on the field earlier this season, his production was highly inconsistent, to say the least, So is not going to have be given the Houston Texans off of line.
00:51:00
At the moment, being as banged up as is is going.
00:51:02
I only they're gonna find great success on the ground against the Ravens this week, so they're gonna and there have passed first offense anyway.
00:51:09
But I think they're gonna have to go to the air.
00:51:12
I think willful or somebody in a wide receiver. Four.
00:51:14
I think it's an interesting D.
00:51:15
F s play if you're looking to go that way, but he's somebody who could be on your radar's depending on what your lineups we're giving you this week.
00:51:22
DeAndre Hopkins.
00:51:23
Obviously you play.
00:51:24
Um uh, Carlos.
00:51:26
Hi.
00:51:27
He's just somebody.
00:51:28
Even in tougher matchups, He still gives you R B three upside.
00:51:31
He is the guy to go to in the gold line.
00:51:33
They try to use him to establish the run game.
00:51:35
He's pretty much been guaranteed for most Part 15 carries a game.
00:51:41
He's an R B three this week, going into a bye week with four teams on by and given the running back injuries at the moment, you could do worse than Carlos Hyde do Johnson.
00:51:49
I'm not trusting him.
00:51:50
Still, he was getting worked in a little bit more before we headed into the bye weeks.
00:51:53
That's the good news.
00:51:56
It does open up.
00:51:57
The possibility it could be a flex guy for peopIe are leagues, but you can't trust it.
00:52:02
They still don't have the ball off the running backs enough and with willful or back in the mix.
00:52:06
I do wonder how much of a part that played in them going to do Johnson Maur.
00:52:10
As of late in the passing game, they might not feel the need to now.
00:52:15
They might just go back to their down the field throwing ability with Kenny Stills and well, full on DeAndre half gets, and that might be the way they choose to attack.
00:52:23
I also think that takes away Volume Farm, Darren Fells and Jordan Akins too tight ends that have been playable.
00:52:30
You don't know which one's going to be there, fellas.
00:52:32
Been guy worked in more so fells.
00:52:37
But you don't really love this match against Baltimore Ravens and with Wolf Puller back is I think it's gonna You're gonna be so contingent on that touchdown.
00:52:44
I don't know how much I would trust it this week.
00:52:46
I think you can find other options outside Darren Fells and the song Watson.
00:52:50
Obviously, we'll finish this Q B one on the Baltimore Ravens side the ball.
00:52:54
Lamar Jackson will continue to compete with Pat Mahomes being the number one fantasy quarterback Weekend week out.
00:53:00
You should have no problem rushing this game.
00:53:02
Houston Texans don't have a defense.
00:53:04
I know they played well against Jacksonville Jaguars.
00:53:06
I expect them to be blown up every single game for the rest of the season.
00:53:11
No, J. J.
00:53:12
Watt, no pass rush No secondary.
00:53:14
I think you can play all your Ravens and f Y I.
00:53:18
I know the practice reports came out that today you had, you know, Mark Ingram and practice, not injury related marquees.
00:53:24
Birth really practice their players a lot.
00:53:27
If you haven't noticed, there's been a kind of throughout the week thing.
00:53:30
There's no doubt about Hallmark anger marquees Brown, Mark Andrews Any of their availabilities this week, No doubt about it.
00:53:36
And there's no doubt about it that you can play everything. One of these guys.
00:53:39
It was nice to see that marquees Brown got back to actually putting up a decent stat line last week.
00:53:44
Four catches, 80 yards and a touchdown on the Cincinnati Bengals.
00:53:47
You know who's worse in the Bangles when giving up the big play in the passing game.
00:53:51
Houston Taxes.
00:53:53
Yeah, you can play marquees Brown this week.
00:53:55
He's a wide receiver, three with tremendous upside, so I would go ahead.
00:53:59
I was sticking in your lives.
00:54:00
I would play him again this week, just like I told you guys to play him against the Bengals last week.
00:54:05
What more is gonna have all of his weapons available to him.
00:54:07
Mark Andrew's gonna be a top possibly top five tight end this week.
00:54:11
Mark Ingram should run the ball well, you can play all of your Ravens that you would normally play without any hesitations whatsoever.
00:54:18
It's nice about Team that they're pretty straightforward, this kind of a match up.
00:54:23
There's no question that you can play all of them and have a good expectation from everyone involved.
00:54:29
So that wraps up our preview episode, our preview games, the early afternoon games, the Thursday night game.
00:54:36
We will be back on Friday, and that will be regularly scheduled Friday morning.
00:54:40
I'll be back on SportsCastr recording that full episode.
00:54:43
Life will be back then with the Thursday football recap, the four o'clock preview games, the Sunday night preview and the Monday night preview as well.
00:54:51
Of course, all the mailbag segment, too.
00:54:53
But right now what we're gonna do is get into the mailbag segment here.
00:54:57
Now I have a couple questions I pre selected out that I normally d'oh ah, and that that you can always contact me on for at M.
00:55:05
D S F F show on Twitter at M D F F show on Facebook or in.
00:55:09
Contact me through email and the f f show dot com, which you can always check out for the rankings there as well.
00:55:18
So that's why you can always contact me through the week.
00:55:20
I always select a few questions to put on here.
00:55:22
If you're on SportsCastr right now and you have a famous football question, go ahead and drop it in the chat and I will get to it through the episode.
00:55:28
So the first question I have pre selected up here is from Victor.
00:55:33
He contact me through email.
00:55:35
He asked me Philip Rivers or Jimmy Garoppolo this week.
00:55:38
That's a very excellent streaming quarterback question.
00:55:41
That's why I picked it out.
00:55:43
I think a lot of people are gonna be in that situation this week.
00:55:46
Russell Wilson owners and whatnot.
00:55:48
So off the two, it's hard to say I would lean towards.
00:55:55
We just don't There's a lot about Francisco we don't know about right.
00:55:57
We know there's kills out right what? No. One.
00:56:05
He will be a good streaming options.
00:56:07
Well, now the Mayo Sanders does not like Jimmy Grapple is not even a streaming option even gets the Arizona Cardinals.
00:56:12
Because I'm not going to trust him, only being able to run the ball of Depot Samuel, which essentially, what would be boiled down to.
00:56:17
At that point, they're gonna just run the ball in play defense and trying to win that way.
00:56:20
That would be the game planning its Cardinals.
00:56:21
There's not gonna be much passing involved.
00:56:23
And I don't think the Carters gonna play quite as well against them this week as they did in Thursday night game and be able to keep the game quite as close to push Jimmy Garoppolo to have to be more aggressive and actually passed more as well.
00:56:37
So but a tomato stick plays grab.
00:56:39
Lo is a streaming option, but I would lean more towards full rivers.
00:56:42
You know, the Chiefs are going to put points plain and simple with passion, homes and all of the weapons healthy.
00:56:47
All the Chiefs.
00:56:48
That offense is starting to click on all cylinders.
00:56:51
They're gonna put up points.
00:56:52
I know offense blind should be okay.
00:56:57
We think Russell Kong's going to buy some of the big for him, and for Melvin Gordon, he's gonna have all of his weapons.
00:57:02
With Mike Williams and Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry and is gonna have awesome heckler Melvin Gordon to go to in the passing game as well.
00:57:09
So I do think the volume is just going to be there.
00:57:11
They're going to have to score.
00:57:12
They're going to have to try to put up at least 30 points in this game to be in order to keep up.
00:57:17
Quite frankly, as long as that's the case, the volume alone makes you lean towards Philip Rivers as a safe, streaming option this week, even though he hasn't played as well as of late.
00:57:28
But I think he's gonna be okay in this one.
00:57:29
I think you got a good shot for 300 yards.
00:57:32
I have a good shot for a couple of touchdowns, but I think most of overall the volume should give you a safe force.
00:57:37
I would lean towards Philip Rivers there.
00:57:39
Victor, Next question I have is from guy from Facebook.
00:57:44
Worry contacted me.
00:57:45
Ask halfway, Brian Hill or Marvin Jones.
00:57:53
It is flax.
00:57:54
First of all, I have to say you have some pretty good options there for your flex position.
00:57:58
I would definitely rule Marvin Jones out of that group right off the bat.
00:58:03
because he's not a running back who's in a position to possibly get 20 plus touches, right? But the other two are so automatically I'm ruling Marvin Jones out, regardless of whether Matthew Stafford place or not.
00:58:13
So we're looking at Daniel Williams looking up.
00:58:14
Ryan help.
00:58:15
This is a tough one if the Shaw McCoy's going be in active again, and we may not know that till Monday night, so that's the problem with that.
00:58:22
But if we somehow know beforehand, LaShawn McCoy will once again be inactive.
00:58:27
I have to.
00:58:28
Do you go Damian Williams, because you just you have.
00:58:30
You got to get a piece of that Chiefsoffense right now.
00:58:32
And if Daniel is in position where he's going to be getting, however, that 20 touches comes to be.
00:58:41
And if you're 1/2 point PPR, you might want to come form or of the passing game than not.
00:58:46
Anyway, uh, he's gonna have a hell of a floor, and he's gonna have an opportunity to score Brian Hill.
00:58:53
He's he's got a hell of Flora's well because he's going to have that workhorse role.
00:58:57
But he's an unproven commodity because the Carolina defense that while has been susceptible is still not bad on paper, and Atlanta Falcons offense is very offensive line, I should say, is very suspect.
00:59:09
So that's where I think you'd have to go with Damian Williams.
00:59:12
And this one is close.
00:59:14
It's close, and it wouldn't shock me for one minute.
00:59:15
Brian Helen. A big game.
00:59:17
But I think there's a and I think you have to play a guy on the Chiefsoffense slightly tortures Damion Williams.
00:59:31
If we find out LaShawn McCoy is going to be active, I may take another look.
00:59:35
Brian Hill in that scenario, because it is LaShawn McCoy suddenly is active.
00:59:38
You can suspect that will be worked in, and then all of a sudden the entire situation, the cancer, the backfield gets thrown right in flocks all over again.
00:59:46
But I would definitely take another look at that.
00:59:48
But right now I would lean towards Damian Williams, KJ from Twitter.
00:59:52
He asked me in the flex position, Jamison Crowder or more keys Brown.
00:59:59
That's a good one.
01:00:01
I think.
01:00:02
James A.
01:00:03
Crowder has a hell of a floor revenge game.
01:00:04
He's been worked in as a dependable targets, and Sam Darnold has been back.
01:00:08
I would probably lean towards marquees Brown.
01:00:11
If I'm looking for a home run threat, look, he's got a great opportunity here against the Houston Texans to get a big play, even possibly have a big game.
01:00:19
We saw him be able to come back.
01:00:22
I have a solid one.
01:00:23
He has just as good of a match up here against Houston.
01:00:26
And I would say in some ways, that's even a better matchup.
01:00:28
Because at least Houston has the offensive firepower to keep up with the Ravens.
01:00:33
Like this game's not going to 49 to 10.
01:00:35
It's gonna be much more competitive for 4/4.
01:00:37
Mean the offense.
01:00:38
The passing game might actually have to be involved for 4/4 where they didn't have to be last week.
01:00:44
So in some ways is actually could work out even more so in marquees Brown's favor than it did a week ago.
01:00:49
I love them both.
01:00:50
I think it would depend on what your lineup needs if you're in a situation where you just need more of a floor play, that I would probably play James Socratic.
01:00:57
So I think you're guaranteed, you know, 6 to 9 targets, 5 to 7 receptions however many yards and being, he's been on a touchdown.
01:01:05
Terror.
01:01:06
As of late, there's a chance you could score a touchdown.
01:01:08
A revenge game against the Redskins.
01:01:09
They may put an emphasis on that, so he just he has.
01:01:11
The floor you could sink your teeth into are leaks.
01:01:15
But we're looking to hit a home run and play a guy who doesn't have a low floor this week.
01:01:21
I think marquees Brown's that guy.
01:01:22
And I think, personally, I would lean towards marquees Brown and go after that upside because I think he has a saver floor than they normally would in other matchups to That's gonna wrap up the show for today.

00:01:10

00:01:19
Now, of course, gonna go over who are Some guys Look out for some guys, the stream as them guys to kind of stay away from.

And, of course, you can always contact me through email on the website there as well.
00:02:21
We have so much to go ahead and get into, so we're gonna go ahead, jump right into it now, as it really isn't a latest news segment.
00:02:29
So the first game up that we want to talk about is the Thursday night matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns are first up on the piste rich dealers side of the ball.
00:02:39
James Connor is expected to play in the night's matchup.
00:02:44
So that's what we have going on there.
00:02:46
That's the big thing there.
00:02:47
So he's No, this is great news for everyone involved.
00:02:50
Who has James Connor? I've been holding on to jail in stainless.
00:02:53
He was back to being his.
00:02:54
You know, his pant cuff backup role, where you will get sprinkled in a little bit, but not enough, I believe, to be a flex play.
00:03:01
Yes, They've been leaning heavily on the run.
00:03:03
Yes, James Connor has shown that he has the unfortunate status of kind of going Matt Brita on us and not actually making it through all 4/4 over the last few weeks.
00:03:14
But I do expect him to get to go through out this match up, and I do think as a result, Jalen Sama's will not be a guy that you can play in the flex position.
00:03:21
In case you're wondering now, the main guy we want to talk about here ju juice Ms Schuster.
00:03:26
At this point, Judas Misters there can no longer be considered a wide receiver to.
00:03:30
Not that many of you who have had judges missions there were considering him in that range to begin with.
00:03:36
But instead we have to start viewing him more as a wide receiver, three low and wide receiver.
00:03:43
Three more of a high end wide receiver.
00:03:44
For that, you kind of play based on match up.
00:03:47
And this isn't a matchup that I liked.
00:03:49
You just misses the wrong Remember, we have Dens Award, who's gonna be playing an instant in this game, so there's not a lot to like here.
00:03:56
Mason Rudolph hasn't really been aggressive going down the field honestly, This is one of those situations where if you have a better match of a better wide receiver, I would play the other half.
00:04:10
It's a real shame.
00:04:11
Yes, most trade deadlines are next week, but I don't think you can sell him for anything.
00:04:16
Even his name isn't well established enough to this point that he would name alone, get you some value in return.
00:04:23
Unless you sold him for a bottom of rocks.
00:04:26
That's pretty much it.
00:04:27
Look, you can't get anything for him.
00:04:28
You're going to have to keep him.
00:04:30
Just play him based on the match ups, when you have a plus one that you have the Dolphins next week so that maybe again, you want to go ahead and check out.
00:04:37
But outside of that, there's really not a whole lot you can take away from our excuse me that all the Dolphins in a few weeks.
00:04:43
I had a Dolphins in a few weeks.
00:04:45
They have some other key matchups coming up.
00:04:46
I was think about the Cleveland Browns there for a second, my mistake.
00:04:49
But yes, they have some matches coming up where you will be able to play him again.
00:04:52
This is A.
00:04:55
You have voice, but that's on leeway.
00:04:59
I'm playing Jews, Mr.
00:05:00
And really, frankly, from here on out completely.
00:05:02
Matchup based Vance McDonald ISn't INTERESTING name.
00:05:06
I don't love it.
00:05:07
Cleveland's about middle of the pack when it comes to tight ends.
00:05:10
But we just got word that George Kendall is ruled out for this week. We know awesome.
00:05:15
Hooper's gonna miss, probably the next month.
00:05:17
You're looking for tight ends. The stream.
00:05:19
Vance McDonald, we know at least gets some of the targets.
00:05:22
Should be getting more work as we move along here as he's come back from his injury.
00:05:26
Hopefully, Mason ruffle of to go his way, but he is somebody whose name might be on your waiver wires.
00:05:32
Right now, it might be somebody who wouldn't be a bad pick up, especially in a matchup going against Cleveland Browns, who have two good corners.
00:05:38
I don't expect one for Junior and Schuster.
00:05:39
I don't expect much from Deonte Johnson in this game, Vance McDonald and the running backs.
00:05:44
Maybe the guys that Mason Rudolph decides to go to in the checkdown games of your PPR league.
00:05:49
I think Master Donald is an okay.
00:05:51
Played not one of my favorites.
00:05:52
I don't feel great about it.
00:05:53
I'm not trying to say that.
00:05:54
But what I will say is that he's somebody release has some talent and possibly some opportunity.
00:06:00
I mean, that's really it.
00:06:01
When you talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers, a real shame how far they have fallen since losing Ben Roethlisberger, How much is he needs him and how much fantasy owners really need him.
00:06:10
We'll see what happens next year.
00:06:11
But for this match up outside of James Connor, there's nobody who's really a must play for me on the Steelers side of the ball for the Cleveland Browns.
00:06:18
A little bit of a different matter.
00:06:20
Nick Chubb Still R B one status as he was able to get 20 Kerry's last week.
00:06:26
As long as that continues toe happen, I think he will be okay.
00:06:30
Look, Cream Hunt.
00:06:31
He may actually carved out a role for himself moving forward in the passing game, but they're not going to start taking away. Carrie Mitchell.
00:06:37
I think you saw that last week.
00:06:39
Yes, Cream Hunt might have more of a load, more of a workload, but I would not trust it.
00:06:47
Overly too much.
00:06:49
Look He's Nick Chubb has been too good, and barring an injury, I just don't see him losing very many carries.
00:06:54
Two.
00:06:55
Cream hunt.
00:06:56
Now his ability to tackle on a few targets in the passing game might have disappeared.
00:07:00
Now with the appearance of Cream Hunt.
00:07:01
And if you're in a full point, PPR league cream one actually is a viable flex plate to me in this game, Baker Mayfield has been absolutely terrible.
00:07:08
That continued to be true against, um, against the team last week.
00:07:13
But going into this match up here, you have the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have a really good pass rush from playing really good defense.
00:07:21
As a result, I do think cream hunts going to be a key checkdown guy.
00:07:25
That Baker. Maybe it's going to go to pretty often.
00:07:27
We saw last week that he had seven catches in that game, so it's It's It's st I guess.
00:07:35
The Buffalo Bills.
00:07:36
He had seven catches a similar team with a similar makeup where you can kind of run the ball at them enough if you really want to, but they have such a good pass rush that is going to have to check the ball down.
00:07:46
I do think Cream Hunt as a decent little role in PPR League.
00:07:49
Now, if you're in standard leagues, I don't know if I'm playing Cream Hunt.
00:07:52
If you're in halfway through the are leagues, I would maybe so, considering the flex position when the full point GPR he does possess a decent floor that I think you can go ahead and play him in Odell Beckham.
00:08:02
Now this is a better matchup than he's had for the past three weeks.
00:08:05
That much is true, but it's still not a fantastic matchup by any stretch of the means.
00:08:10
You still have to go against the Steelers.
00:08:12
Stevens has been pretty good.
00:08:13
You still have Baker Mayfield there.
00:08:14
But unlike Judas, Miss.
00:08:16
User, I do think Odell Beckham does present you some upside that you can utilize ability to make plays him.
00:08:25
He has been able to get you five catches for 50 yards in a pretty since the bases.
00:08:28
Nothing to write home about, of course, but as long as he's able to operate with somewhat of a floor from a week to week basis, you know it only takes one play.
00:08:36
There's been a better match than he's had the past few weeks.
00:08:38
I think you can play Odell Beckham, but he still has to be considered more of a wide receiver.
00:08:43
Three.
00:08:44
So he's another guy.
00:08:45
He's not a must star for me this week, but I just don't see you having too many better options than him heading into this week as well.
00:08:51
So something else to kind of keep in mind there when you're looking at what do I do with Odell Beckham Jr.
00:08:57
So don't overplay him.
00:08:58
But if you don't have a better match up, you could do worse than Odell Beckham.
00:09:01
I have more hope for him than, say, judges and issues.
00:09:03
They're moving forward.
00:09:05
Uh, I talked about David and joking and wait for my report.
00:09:07
He's not gonna play this week, obviously, but he's somebody that I just want to throw out there in case you guys did not pick him up in your waiver wires in case you're he's still sitting out there, which is the likely scenario right now, being that he's still about a week or so away.
00:09:19
He's, um, is awesome.
00:09:25
Hooper's out for a month that somebody could pick up as a long term season stash that could maybe pay off for you as we get into the playoff runs here.
00:09:33
Moving forward Baker Mayfield as I've completely downgraded him.
00:09:38
We're talking about the wide receivers.
00:09:39
It's no different.
00:09:40
He's still not a streaming quarterback, and the Steeler defense, I think, is going to feast on him.
00:09:44
They are actually a good streaming option for me here.
00:09:47
Heading into Thursday night's matchup, same could be said of the Cleveland Browns.
00:09:51
I do think James Conner couldn't find some success running against them in the football because they have been gassed as of late.
00:09:56
But they were able to play pretty well against Buffalo, who want run the football, either able to pass rushers.
00:10:03
They're able to get some turnover here.
00:10:04
So Cleveland Browns, actually on a bad streaming defense if you're looking for one there as well.
00:10:09
So our first Sunday afternoon game that we want to talk about here is the Dallas Cowboys and the short list executor Ellie back the shape.
00:10:28
Get back to his RV one status heading into this week.
00:10:31
I don't expect it to be any problems with that happening so that you were gonna bench Ezekiel Elliott, but I do think go back to having our B one expectations heading into this match up against Troy.
00:10:41
Mari Cooper did not practice today, but we are expecting him to be able to play right, so you didn't practice great game.
00:10:50
Now, Yes, he's probably gonna be shadowed by Darius Slay, so I wouldn't expect himto have insane game that he had a week ago.
00:10:56
I do expect him to be a top five wide receiver, but I still expecting the finishes of wide receiver one.
00:11:01
I don't think it's going to change any time soon, so just kind of keep that in mind as well.
00:11:05
Marchal Gallop might be the guy this week.
00:11:08
He had a decent game last week.
00:11:09
70 yards touchdown did pretty well for himself.
00:11:12
But I expect that to continue.
00:11:13
If Darius Lee's gonna shadow Marquis Cooper all over the field, there's no reason to think that Michael Gallop won't be able to take advantage in his match ups, especially since Dallas should be able to throw in this game.
00:11:25
You gotta hope, though, if you're Dallas, you actually want or on soon savior Dallas.
00:11:29
If you are, definitely want Matthew Stafford to play on the other side.
00:11:32
You want Detroit's offense to be able to put up points because being able to do so to keep that game close, to keep them having to be aggressive for 4/4 is going going to be the key.
00:11:41
Quite frankly, for Michael, Gabby would have that high floor of a game.
00:11:45
If Driscoll winds up playing, then you obviously still a star Amaury Cooper respect to me because it could be turning into a situation where Dallas has to run the ball and they don't have to do a lot in the passing game nor the win this one.
00:11:57
So it's kind of something to keep in mind that extra factor that maybe you weren't thinking about previously too extra guys are taking in all the variables.
00:12:07
I want to make sure that you guys know exactly what you're getting yourself into in any given week, and I expect that to be the case here.
00:12:14
So you want Matthew Stafford the play.
00:12:17
If you have Michael Gallop, it does.
00:12:19
I would say you go ahead.
00:12:20
You started with no worries as a wide receiver, three with upside that you know it was possible to score and if Darius Lee does have a good game against, um, Are you Cooper? Then you know, Michael gals gonna have a great game on the other side and may still be a good game either way.
00:12:34
So I do like Michael gal there a lot as far as Jason Witten goes again.
00:12:38
I've talked about him last week.
00:12:40
I'm not going to play Jason Witten in any given match up at all.
00:12:43
If he does well, great.
00:12:44
He's not gonna be on my team when he does it, though, because it's gonna be too many games where he goes.
00:12:48
Coup for 15 rather than a catches Brillo The tree lines about side the ball talked about Matthew Stafford a little bit.
00:13:01
He did not practice.
00:13:02
Today is going to be considered a game time decision, but there has been optimism leading into this since high week so far.
00:13:09
Now we are early on the weak, but there's been optimism so far that he's going to be able to find a way to suit up.
00:13:15
Hopefully, that'll be the case because you want to play guys like Kenny Golladay, who I know had a decent game last week.
00:13:21
But it came on one play, and you can't expect that one play that happen every time.
00:13:26
Jeff, you know you can't count on it.
00:13:30
Kenny got.
00:13:31
He's got to be somebody you can go to.
00:13:33
And if he's not really put you in a day for position because with four teams on by the fact that God has been Ah Wai receiver two week in and week out, you need Matthew Stafford in.
00:13:44
It's not a great matchup.
00:13:46
Otherwise so, hopefully Staffer plays the technicality at his wide receiver to status.
00:13:51
Same could be said for Marvin Jones, who's made his way back in because since the volume of the passing game has now tilted that way for the Detroit Lions being that carry on, Johnson has been out and they just haven't been able to find an answer in the running game.
00:14:04
All of a sudden, Marvin Jones Jr has come back to being a wide receiver three with touchdown upside because there's targets to go around now.
00:14:11
Yes, I talk about Danny Amendola.
00:14:13
I do think if Stafford plays and as its its effort place, he could be a full point p PR guy that you could go to in effect position if you're hindered by buyer, hindered by injuries.
00:14:24
I'm not gonna love the play, but there does stand to reason, at least to these Detroit receivers will have a decent game and he could be one of those guys and somebody you could take a shot on.
00:14:32
Reasonably speaking.
00:14:35
Four.
00:14:36
Ty Johnson. He's working through concussion protocol.
00:14:38
He did not practice today, so it's usually not a great sign because usually want to see these guys practicing on Wednesday.
00:14:43
Don't take contact on Wednesdays when they're going through concussion protocol, but if they're out there, even a limited capacity is usually a sign that they're turning in the right direction for that week.
00:14:52
He didn't practice.
00:14:53
It doesn't mean he definitely won't play this week, but it doesn't mean you have to make other adjustments.
00:14:57
JD McKissick, especially a PPR league, is actually a decent little flecks play this week is a decent R B three to maybe have on your team.
00:15:05
He was able to score last week was able take advantage of Ty Johnson not being in, but I would this week, going into the full week is possibly being the starter from the get go Yeah, I second he worked in the passing game.
00:15:17
He's going to have a high floor for you, especially talking half point leagues.
00:15:22
He's somebody.
00:15:23
You complain you're flexes because he's somebody's gonna get an abnormal amount of touches for somebody in his position.
00:15:29
So I do like J D.
00:15:30
Because it quite a bit this week is, well, Tedy Hawkinson.
00:15:33
A lot of people are gonna talk about him, right? Because we don't know we have the tight end woes or just astounding to me.
00:15:39
Frankly, at this point, TV Hawkinson is somebody you can play, and I don't feel great about it.
00:15:46
Look, the biggest thing here that we have to take in consideration right is because with when you're talking about a guy like TJ Hawkins, and he has not been able to take advantage of his opportunities, he's been targeted in the red zone.
00:15:59
He's been targeted more so than most tight ends throughout the year, but between drops not running great routes, he's just somebody who's been unreliable, to say the least Now.
00:16:10
I don't expect that to continue forever, especially not in the future of his career, but be given the site and situation you want.
00:16:16
Guys just have opportunities to score.
00:16:18
He is our guy.
00:16:19
I don't in a league where if Stafford and this is a staffer played a lot of this is contingent on staffer plank, but in the lead, in a situation where you're just looking for a tight and have a chance at a touchdown.
00:16:30
Dallas not being the greatest match up in the world, they could put some emphasis on the outside wide receivers leading you to have the lead Mrs score.
00:16:40
So if you're looking for more tight ends, have a chance to score.
00:16:42
That's him.
00:16:43
He has an incredibly low floor, though she just understand that before making that decision.
00:16:47
Making that movie next game won't talk to you about Jackson Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts Nick Foles.
00:16:55
Welcome back, for better. For worse.
00:16:57
I have been a big time advocate That I am was not for Nick Foles taking over starting job.
00:17:03
Now it's hard to argue after governments who played so poorly in London against Houston and headed into should suddenly erase everything.
00:17:13
Garter.
00:17:14
Vince, you did government.
00:17:15
You played really well and he actually was finishing inside the top 12 more times, not from a fantasy aspect, and the offense, for the most part, have been doing pretty well.
00:17:26
It's been the defense hasn't quite lived up to expectations, and now they don't have Jalen Ramsey.
00:17:30
We don't really expect them to look.
00:17:34
What does Nick Foles do for the wide receiver? Because that's all that really matters.
00:17:37
At the end of the day, right? Because D.
00:17:38
J.
00:17:39
Shark has been a wide receiver to Devi Westbrook's been a guy who's been working his way up as work himself back into wide receiver three flex territory.
00:17:46
So what is this going to do for this offense? Well, the game plan doesn't change much, Um, especially considering the fact that they brought in John the phobia has been the offense a coordinator.
00:17:56
So what they've been doing offensively, schematic wise is not gonna change.
00:17:59
Now.
00:18:00
He doesn't possess the mobility of a gardener.
00:18:02
Mention, which is why I think Nick Foles in him of himself is not a fantasy option for you guys this week.
00:18:07
Going to the Colts.
00:18:08
It's a tough matchup.
00:18:10
He's not mobile enough.
00:18:11
You're totally leaning on.
00:18:12
His arm is not a good offensive line, which I think is going to show up to be more, even more of a factor this week, with no gardener mention to be able to buy himself time than it would normally speaking with this Jackson Jaguar offense and gentle So there's all things have taken a consideration.
00:18:28
Why don't have Nick Foles a streaming option at quarterback? What does he do for the wide receivers? We don't have much of a sample size to go off of when it comes to the Jaguars, right? All we know is that the entire summer heading into the season, DD Western was by far the guy he had the most report with.
00:18:46
Now Nicole has been back a practice for a couple of We'll see if he was able to develop a relationship with D J chart in that time.
00:18:52
Get on the same page with him is his guy.
00:18:57
And DJ Shark is just secondary to that, because here's the problem.
00:19:00
The Jackal Jaguars offense is not a juggernaut.
00:19:03
Offense is not.
00:19:04
A team of puts up a ton of points, so you figure on most most cases most weeks it's gonna be one wide receiver who's able to perform off expectations and a game against the Colts.
00:19:16
I don't like this game to be truly high scoring, either.
00:19:18
I think there's gonna be a lot of running defense of play involved, so it may only be one wide receiver was able to take advantage without having much of a sample size Right now, I trust that Dede Westbrook is going to be worked in throughout this game, more so than D J chart on D Day chart.
00:19:35
There's no doubt about it.
00:19:36
He became a go to guy.
00:19:39
He became a guy that nobody was paying attention to and developed into somebody who very well may be a star from here and great.
00:19:48
So far this season, he's a jump ball guy.
00:19:51
Nick Foles, typically speaking, doesn't throw a ton of jump balls.
00:19:54
You lose usually looks for that guy gets more separation, Which is why I think Dede Westbrook will be the guy this week, but it's kind of a wait and see factor that could easily change.
00:20:03
We didn't know deejay chart was going to be this good coming into this season, so maybe some of that changes, but a lot of it's up in the air right now.
00:20:12
My whole thing would be that hopefully you don't have to trust Jaguars.
00:20:16
Why receiver? This weekend, you kind of play the wait and see game, but most likely you're not.
00:20:20
In that scenario, I think you can play.
00:20:22
D did Shark as a wireless high and wide receiver three and flex play.
00:20:25
I think the same could be said for Dede Westbrook.
00:20:27
I think both of these guys can be in your lineups, not on the same team.
00:20:31
Of course, if you have both of them, I don't know why you would torture yourself that way.
00:20:34
But if you had both Dede Westbrook.
00:20:38
But I think if you have both, if you have these guys all throughout your fantasy teams, I think you can play both these guys as flex buddies heading into this week and then kind of play the wait and see.
00:20:48
But there's gonna be a lot of questions to be answered heading into this matchup.
00:20:52
Letter for net should be great.
00:20:53
I mean, he's gonna keep getting his workload.
00:20:55
This isn't a great matchup with you. Figure.
00:20:57
With Nick Foles first coming back, you expect him to be a little bit rusty.
00:21:00
You expected to lean on the running game So I think letter for Net has a great floor like he normally does.
00:21:05
Hopefully, coming out of the bye week, they're able to figure out some of the world's.
00:21:09
They've had the goal line situation and he's able start scoring touchdowns.
00:21:12
There's no reason.
00:21:13
Well, he shouldn't have Maur.
00:21:14
There's no reason the worldwide, if he doesn't keep getting the opportunities that he has been getting, that he shouldn't find a way to score.
00:21:20
So better days, I think, are actually ahead for letter for net As we move into the playoff push and four f Y i dd westward practice in full today, he will be good to go on Sunday for the Colts.
00:21:31
Silent ball Joey percent practice in full.
00:21:33
He's going to be back.
00:21:35
Thank goodness, because T.
00:21:36
Y Hilton probably won't be.
00:21:38
He didn't practice it all today.
00:21:39
We still don't know exactly what his timetable is going to be.
00:21:42
Yes, he's still considered question all for this week.
00:21:44
He hasn't ruled out it's still early on, but I'm not expecting him to see him be back.
00:21:49
So the good thing about Jacoby Recep coming back is Zach Pascual is somebody that you might be able to play in the flax and PPR league.
00:21:56
The balls gotta go somewhere.
00:21:58
Gonna have to be Zach Pascoe, I think is gonna be number one guy.
00:22:00
And being that Brian Horror would be out, you actually have a chance for him to be able to do something.
00:22:05
Let's hope Anyway, Eric Ebron.
00:22:08
Yeah, statistically had an okay.
00:22:10
Game also had a lot of drops.
00:22:12
But the fact is, against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the only true red zone threats are Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle.
00:22:19
Given the title situation, I think Air Gabe runs actually, not just a streaming option, but probably a top and streaming option coming after waver our port.
00:22:27
You're not gonna feel great about it.
00:22:29
I don't feel great in telling you that.
00:22:30
But way the cars falls away, the numbers go.
00:22:34
That is looking like a real possibility that he is going to be a top streaming option for you this week.
00:22:39
He's somebody that I think if you had all snooper, you had George Kendall.
00:22:42
He's a likely scenario that he could be the best height and that you could pick up in play this week.
00:22:47
It's not gonna be great.
00:22:48
Not telling you will be Marlon.
00:22:49
Matt typically, historically does not have great games against Jacksonville Jaguars.
00:22:54
Having said that, you can't bench Marlon Mack.
00:22:56
He's been an RV to even last week. We didn't have a great game.
00:23:00
He still had 19 carries.
00:23:01
He still had a four for you.
00:23:02
So you just know he's not gonna give you much in the passing game.
00:23:05
You're hoping that he scores, but he's been an RV to you.
00:23:08
Might be more of a Lohan RV to playing Jackson Jaguars, but you can't bench him by any shots of the means.
00:23:13
Not that I think most of you were going to just a quick tidbit on the Colts.
00:23:17
Devin Funches was designated to return from IRC.
00:23:20
Still, a few weeks away from that can actually happen.
00:23:23
But just to give you an idea of you've been holding onto Zack passport, maybe even playing him a little bit with the mixture going on a couple weeks down the road against the playoffs, don't think Zack Pass was gonna be somebody that you can plug him play in a wide receiver.
00:23:36
Four riders here.
00:23:37
Five desperate situation.
00:23:38
If you found yourself hurting and injuries, you know when we get the playoffs, there's no more bye weeks or anything like that.
00:23:43
But you still might have some injuries that you're working out.
00:23:46
Just kind quick.
00:23:47
F Y I for exact Paschal owners moving forward next game I want to talk about No, I don't really want to talk about this game, but we have to talk about this game.
00:23:55
The Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins.
00:23:58
It's gonna be a boring game is gonna be bad.
00:24:01
It's probably like a 17 to 10 game look.
00:24:04
The Buffalo Bills defense, I think, is too good for the Miamis newfound competitive offense to really do that Well, I think if you have to, you can still play Devante Parker as a wide receiver. Three.
00:24:16
Purely based on volume because I don't love imagine he's gonna see true Davis White at least half the time.
00:24:22
The good news is, the Buffalo Bills don't shadow, so the whole fleet of Dolphins will be smart enough to move about the Parker at the other side of the field.
00:24:29
But no one ever accused Dolphins of being smart this season, so we'll see what happens.
00:24:33
I expected to be at least half the time based on volume you complain was a wide receiver.
00:24:37
Three.
00:24:38
He has been the guy that go to in the red zone, so he just has that floor that you can play him on.
00:24:43
But it's not a great matchup.
00:24:44
And I hope hope you have better options.
00:24:47
Obviously. Writing dispatches.
00:24:48
Not a streaming quarterback.
00:24:49
So stay away there.
00:24:50
Campbell eyes.
00:24:52
He could get 30 carries this game.
00:24:54
I don't know if I'd care.
00:24:55
I know a lot of people looking at this.
00:24:57
Hey, but for the Bills, they've been gash in the running game over the past few weeks.
00:25:01
Now it looks acceptable in that area.
00:25:03
It has.
00:25:04
I don't think it matters where Kalen Blodgett.
00:25:06
You're talking about a guy who had 20 carries last week for 40 yards.
00:25:09
I mean, if you play Caleb Lodge one, you have to be either ra***ed by injury or had got hit hard by this bye week, too.
00:25:19
You are praying to whoever it is that you pray to.
00:25:22
This guy falls in the ends out because as the only way you're gonna get some value out of him.
00:25:28
So look, hopefully going to get volume, he's gonna be the starter cannibalized the end zone if you're gonna play him this particular week on the bill. Side the ball.
00:25:41
Kevin Singletary.
00:25:42
I'm playing you with confidence I know is disappointing last week.
00:25:45
Yes, Frank Gore is not going to go away, but we knew that the more important thing is that Devon Singletary is now officially getting more touches on a week to week basis than Frank or moving forward.
00:25:54
That's all you can really look for.
00:25:55
He's involved enough in the passing game at the fact that Frank War will take carries away from him doesn't hinder him too severely, especially when you're talking about plus matchups.
00:26:05
There's a big time plus match up.
00:26:07
I think Devon secretary is a great chance to break a big one in this one.
00:26:11
He's gotten.
00:26:12
He's more of an RV to To me, this week is great flex play, but he's actually, I think, going to finish an RV to status heading into this week.
00:26:18
So I love Devon.
00:26:19
Secretary John Brown continued to play him as a wide receiver, three with big play potential.
00:26:24
He's been targeted enough each week, getting about 5 to 7 targets on a week to week basis regardless of the match up, examing Howard.
00:26:30
We're not exactly sure if he's going to be back this week or not, But even if he is, he's not somebody who's scared you this season.
00:26:37
Yes, the Dolphins were playing more competitive as of late. It don't care.
00:26:40
John Brown is enough of a guy who's been getting worked in enough.
00:26:42
That he can play is a wide receiver, three for you.
00:26:45
I know people are gonna ask me out cold easily.
00:26:48
He kind of falls in that category of Jason Witten to me, not not quite as bad.
00:26:51
Not quite that, but still a guy that you're not gonna be on my team.
00:26:55
You're not going to die.
00:26:56
I count on whenever he does well is coming.
00:26:59
It's a good and complete fluke because you're dealing with Josh Allen, whose only complete just over 50% of his passes.
00:27:05
And it also has to be in situations where the built actually have to throw the ball.
00:27:09
Do you really see the Bills having to throw the ball on this one? Do you really not see them being able to control the game through their defense and through their run game Onley one wide receiver is gonna be fantasy relevant this week or really, most weeks, it's gonna be John Brown.
00:27:21
Outside of that, I'm not touching anybody else in Buffalo.
00:27:24
Yes, Josh Sounds of streaming option this week, mostly owned.
00:27:27
He's over 50% owned, on average, dropped most of the league's, but he is available in some waiver wires.
00:27:31
If you're looking for a quarterback to stream or if you have been platooning the quarterback position, the Miami Dolphins is a game where you can always, for the most part, stream a quarterback should be able to get you some yards on the ground.
00:27:43
Always a threat to score.
00:27:44
I'm good with Josh Allen as your starting quarterback this week, the Poss possibly be a low in Cuba.
00:27:49
You want Hi M Q B two.
00:27:51
Next game.
00:27:52
Talk about the Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings? Yes, we're going, and it's not like it would get any better, right, because even if Drew lot comes back, who the hell knows where he's at his development? It Vic Vanja has been pretty clear from the start that he is not really to font of where he is, where his game is at as faras correlates the NFL level as faras correlates to actually having to play this guy and trust this guy.
00:28:18
So, yeah, we're probably gonna see Brendan Allen for a while.
00:28:22
And even if he goes, it's not going to improve the situation for Courtland Sutton, which is the only person you really care about.
00:28:29
You can play Courtland Sutton this week against Minnesota Vikings.
00:28:32
This is not second area scares you, and I'm gonna keep saying it every week until people believe me because I still get pushed back on this, which amazes me because the stats are there in front of you.
00:28:40
Over the past six weeks, moves out of Vikings have actually been one of the worst secondaries one the best ones for fantasy wide receivers.
00:28:47
Courting some was a blue score would bring it on quarterback before they had their bye week.
00:28:52
He's really the only guy left.
00:28:53
Go to one of his bases in the passing game.
00:28:55
Noah fans gonna be hit or miss the running backs.
00:28:58
Phillip Lindsay.
00:28:59
They'll dump it down with him and wish Freeman some of the time.
00:29:01
But Courtland sons, who's gonna have to go to brand Alan can only make one read that this is one Reed is on defense.
00:29:07
That was not a secondary should say that scares you.
00:29:09
So, yeah, you can play.
00:29:10
Cortland started as a flax as a wide receiver. Three.
00:29:13
Who has volume? Safe floor capabilities as far as anybody else goes.
00:29:19
Philip Lindsay, I don't love the match up here.
00:29:20
Minnesota hasn't been great for running backs and famous for it.
00:29:24
Especially not really good ones. Trust your RV.
00:29:26
One caliber.
00:29:28
Denver will have to lean on the running game as they always do.
00:29:30
So filled Lindsay, as a result, is at least at least a flex play.
00:29:35
But you're gonna get mixed in with him. Royce Freeman.
00:29:38
I don't think you could play were streaming.
00:29:39
This week is a flex.
00:29:40
So for those of you who are trying to ride it out, kind of ride a committee.
00:29:43
He had been getting into the end zone a little bit more and more.
00:29:46
I truly think there has to be better options for you than Royce Freeman this week.
00:29:50
He has such a low floor, especially if he doesn't catch the ball.
00:29:54
Remember, before they went on that bye week That week alone, Rose firm and not only was not work that involved that much in general as we're used to him seeing, but he was worked in at all in the passing game under with Brandon Allen taking over.
00:30:08
That's something that worries me, especially for his flex appeal moving forward so I wouldn't play worst.
00:30:13
Freeman here.
00:30:14
I would play Phillip Lindsay, but you have to expect him to be more of a high and R B three than an R B two heading into this match up on the Viking side, the ball.
00:30:21
You know who you're going to play gonna place the fund digs.
00:30:24
Adam Feeling didn't practice today.
00:30:27
So as far as we know, Stefan Digs will again be the number one wide receiver.
00:30:30
Yes, he will see Chris Harris.
00:30:32
Yes, you.
00:30:33
Yes, the fund digs has on Lee, you know, hasn't really been able take advantage over the past couple of weeks with no Adam dealing.
00:30:40
He's kind of cooled off after he finally got a midseason hot streak.
00:30:43
But there's still a floor there.
00:30:46
We're talking about a guy who's gonna be the number one wide receiver.
00:30:48
They're still not another receiver on the Minnesota Vikings that really demands the attention of Kirk Cousins on a weekly basis.
00:30:54
Yeah, well, Kron Treadwell has been worked in a little bit more.
00:30:56
We've seen O.
00:30:57
B. C. Johnson be able to fill in for Adam.
00:30:59
Feeling quite well, really, The only guy that is worth talking about outside Stefan digs when it comes to the passing game with somebody I talked about in the waiver wire report.
00:31:07
Collar Rudolph.
00:31:08
You're looking for a tight and has an opportunity score a touchdown.
00:31:11
That's been him.
00:31:12
That's been the guy.
00:31:13
He has gotten quite a few touchdowns over the past few weeks.
00:31:17
He is somebody you can go ahead and stream and have that ability to do so with no Adam deal and he's been a go to guy in the red zone, he's not gonna give you much time. Twenties.
00:31:25
Still expect Ally catches.
00:31:26
Don't expect a lot of yards, but if you're looking for a guy, you're just hoping and praying for a touchdown.
00:31:30
Think Howard Rudolph gives you that this week? Yeah, the Denver Broncos have a decent defense, but because they have next to no offense, I do expect extra possessions for the Minnesota Vikings.
00:31:38
So I do think they're gonna be able to keep their fantasy relevant guy's fantasy relevant even in a tougher matchup.
00:31:43
Salomon Cook.
00:31:44
You know, I can't say enough about the guy.
00:31:45
He's just playing a different speed and everybody else I don't care.
00:31:48
We're going up against Denver Broncos, who have been pretty good against the run for the past month.
00:31:51
He's going to be your RV one of the week, probably 2nd 2 on Lee Christian McCaffrey, like he is almost every single week so far this season.
00:32:00
Kirk Cousins Not streaming option for me.
00:32:02
I do think that pass rush, the Denver Broncos is going to give him some issues.
00:32:05
I don't expect a lot of yards now.
00:32:07
Maybe it's a week like last week.
00:32:08
Maybe he gets you 220 yards but gets you three touchdowns.
00:32:12
That is possible in this game, but I wouldn't town on it.
00:32:18
Quarterbacks, I'm going to stream that have more of an upside when it comes to yardage that have more of an upside when it gets to getting that 300 yard mark is that benchmark.
00:32:26
I try to look for who has that potential When Sherman, quarterback and car cousins doesn't have that potential.
00:32:31
I believe heading into this way against Denver Broncos.
00:32:34
So I would stay away from him, that streaming territory, if you can help it at all for our next matchup.
00:32:40
New Orleans Saints.
00:32:42
Hey, Buck, in years, I think we're gonna get the shootout game that we thought we were going to get between the Saints and the Falcons last week.
00:32:50
Couple things working in.
00:32:51
That's that direction, Right? Marshawn Lattimore out.
00:32:55
We don't know exactly what he's gonna be back, but he's gonna be out.
00:32:57
That means Mike Evans is.
00:32:59
Should have good matchups.
00:33:01
Means Chris Goblin has even in the day, Miss Winston.
00:33:09
I don't care for those two picks.
00:33:11
He's almost guaranteed 300 yards a game.
00:33:14
He's almost guaranteed to have sounds of game, so you can throw two interceptions.
00:33:18
If you're gonna give me three yards and two touchdowns, you're going to be a top 12 quarterback.
00:33:22
Plain and simple.
00:33:23
James Winson is definitely somebody I play this week without a doubt, especially no Martian Lattimore.
00:33:30
So I definitely think you can play all of your Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
00:33:32
I think you can play Ronald Jones.
00:33:34
The good news of what the reports.
00:33:35
I've been able to get so far out of town, they can't have been that Ronald Jones did not put himself in the doghouse for that horrendous fumble last week.
00:33:43
It was bad, because if you watch the replay or if you missed that game, he wasn't even touched.
00:33:49
The ball just came flying out of his hand.
00:33:52
He didn't put himself in doghouse.
00:33:53
So in fact, if anything, the you know that's too, and we're gonna get even more involved in the passing game.
00:34:03
Okay, great.
00:34:05
Bruce, Look, he he got put the dog has a little bit that game because Peyton Barber came in, got the goal line work.
00:34:10
That's why they both wound up with 11 carries each last week.
00:34:13
But you're not really looking for Ronald Jones to give you that high production in the Russian game.
00:34:19
It's can't be involved in passing game, and it sounds like they're pretty much betting on that.
00:34:25
And in this magic is New Orleans Saints.
00:34:27
You don't really care what they give you in the running game because you don't expect them to give you much.
00:34:31
In the running game against one of the top rush defense is in the NFL.
00:34:34
Can he catch the ball of the back field? That's going to be Ronald Jones.
00:34:37
I think you can play him specially PPR league.
00:34:39
But I think you can play him as a low on Darby, too, even against the Saints.
00:34:43
Because I think he's going to have that floor.
00:34:45
We're gonna look to dump the ball off to him again.
00:34:47
They want of being an easy target for James Winston to go to.
00:34:50
I think he's gonna need some nice, easy target begin in this game.
00:34:54
I think Ronald Jones is gonna be okay.
00:34:56
As you know, volume volume is the name of the game becomes fantasy football.
00:35:00
I still don't love around town metal tools in the rule.
00:35:11
So you know what? Ron Jones? Good.
00:35:13
Okay, especially he's involved in past games.
00:35:15
According to areas, he will be, uh, everyone else to play Evans playing God when you play kind of goes out saying there you don't play O. J. Howard.
00:35:23
I know that was okay.
00:35:25
That's one guy would definitely make sure we mentioned here in the show.
00:35:27
O J. Howard.
00:35:29
I know we got worked in Finally, last week.
00:35:31
I know a lot of people are buzzing.
00:35:33
Oh, leading it traded.
00:35:34
And then the first week that they come back after he's not getting traded, he gets worked in.
00:35:38
I don't care.
00:35:39
First of all, the Saints aren't the best match for tight ends to begin with, and the season forecasters 47 hours a touchdown.
00:35:47
I'm not betting money on that.
00:35:48
O.
00:35:49
J.
00:35:50
Howard's not dreaming option to me at all. Stay away.
00:35:52
Stay far away.
00:35:53
Don't get trapped in the name.
00:35:54
Let someone else make that mistake for you guys.
00:35:57
Now, as we're going through this year, you're watching the SportsCastr Stream.
00:36:01
I know you guys on audio can't do this.
00:36:03
But if you're watching the SportsCastr stream right now, remember at the end of this episode, we are gonna have the mailbag statement.
00:36:08
So if you want to drop a fancy football question there and chat, I will get to you as part of the episode later on, when we're done previewing these games Now, having said that, back to the Saints, Drew Brees, play him, play him.
00:36:20
There is a very likelihood outside of Lamar Jackson running around and Patrick Holmes that Drew Brees is going to finish in the top three quarterback and compete for that number one quarterback spot overall this week, I'd look is Tammy Buccaneers.
00:36:33
I know.
00:36:34
I know the letter Falcons you thought were foreshore.
00:36:37
He was going to go off against them.
00:36:38
I think what he did not do against the Falcons he will do and make up for against Tampa Bay.
00:36:44
Buccaneers with without Without a doubt, Falcons were coming off by Thio.
00:36:49
They looked like they promised play their Super Bowl against the Saints this past week.
00:36:52
I wouldn't be surprised that defense went back to being abysmal against everybody else the rest of the way.
00:36:57
Terry Buccaneers can't cover anyone.
00:37:02
Michael Thomas is going to have a great game, so he had a great game last week.
00:37:05
He might even have a better game this week.
00:37:08
I totally expect double digit catches.
00:37:11
I expect over 100 yards. I expected.
00:37:13
Yeah, it's right over 100 years.
00:37:14
Expected touchdown, I said.
00:37:15
Michael Thomas go absolutely bananas in this game.
00:37:18
Same thing goes for Drew Brees.
00:37:20
Standing goes for album problem.
00:37:24
Camara's son give you in the running game.
00:37:26
That's why I tend to try to stay away from TV's Murray.
00:37:29
This week, even if he's going to carve out a 10 to 12 touch role, which he might have for the rest of the season.
00:37:34
Gets hit by pay Buccaneers.
00:37:36
They are number one run defense right now.
00:37:38
I don't think he's gonna give you a whole hell of a lot.
00:37:40
But tomorrow, in the passing game, I expected to get you somewhere between six and nine catches.
00:37:44
I expected him to get you somewhere between 50 and 90 yards.
00:37:48
Question's gonna be.
00:37:49
Does he score on top of that? But the floor is gonna be there.
00:37:52
He's gonna have those opportunities.
00:37:54
The ball has to go.
00:37:55
Someone besides Michael Thomas sometimes.
00:37:57
And that's gonna be Camara.
00:37:58
More times not, is the second pass catcher.
00:38:01
For those of you are wondering, you know, are the Saints in this matchup going to have a second wide receiver that you can stream? I don't know how you can trust anybody right now.
00:38:08
Does that Second wide receiver would be 10 again, Junior.
00:38:11
But as you've really done enough this season for you to actually feel confident about that, I think there's actually a lot of wide receivers that you can go to this week that you don't stoop that low.
00:38:19
The bottom the barrel.
00:38:21
I will tell you one guy.
00:38:22
I definitely want to see everyone playing as Jared Cook.
00:38:26
Tammy Buccaneers.
00:38:27
The Arizona Cardinals are laughing.
00:38:29
Stocks when it comes to defense, is against the tight end.
00:38:31
Jared Cook's gonna have a great game.
00:38:33
There's absolutely, positively no doubt about it.
00:38:37
Drew Brees is gonna go over 350 yards.
00:38:39
Ah, lot That's gonna go Michael Thomas a lot. It's gonna go.
00:38:42
Alvin Kamara.
00:38:43
You know who else is gonna go to? It's gonna go to Jared Cook.
00:38:45
I think he has a great opportunity to score in this game and you're looking for that 100 yard touchdown performance.
00:38:50
This is the week that he has the possibility for that to happen.
00:38:53
Play Jared Cook everywhere you can.
00:38:56
In fact, I would even go as far as to say is that if you have a good tight end and you have Jared cook on your roster, which is possible such injured cooking your trust, that's how far I would go to say played you cook this week, make sure he's in your lineups.
00:39:14
The great matchup for him next game, not so exciting.
00:39:19
Jets Redskins.
00:39:21
Yeah, it might be.
00:39:25
I don't know what can be worse than the Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins game, but it's going to give it pretty close competition.
00:39:31
We know what the rest of us want to do, right? They want to run the ball.
00:39:33
They want around the clock.
00:39:34
They want to make the game assures possible.
00:39:36
So that way, it doesn't look like they got blown out by much.
00:39:38
But they're playing the Jets, so it might not be a blood no matter what they dio.
00:39:42
We know.
00:39:43
Dwayne Haskins is a starter for the rest of the season.
00:39:45
We know dairies.
00:39:46
Geiss is coming back this week.
00:39:49
We know that Chris Thompson did not practice today, so it doesn't look like Chris Thompson's going to return this week.
00:39:54
They're still waiting for him to come.
00:40:10
Three guys, I think there's for a couple of reasons.
00:40:12
One age Peters has been pretty good.
00:40:14
Bill Callahan loves him.
00:40:16
The second reason is there's guys is first week back from his injury, the last he's only played what, Ah, full game before being injured again for a long stretch in the NFL so far, so we don't know if this guy can hold up.
00:40:29
I think there's a really good chance Adrian Peterson is looking at about 65% at least of the work share.
00:40:34
When it comes to the carries, maybe 70%.
00:40:37
What you will see his guys get worked in the passing game, though I would not play a Redskins running back if I can help it.
00:40:45
Because if you talk to me on Monday and the risk Ines went, you know 50 50 it wouldn't surprise me.
00:40:52
So there's a wide range of outcomes here you're talking about, so hopefully you have better options than the Redskins running game.
00:40:58
But if not, I do think that you can count on Adrian Peterson. Get the carries.
00:41:03
I think guys will get the catches, but how much they're even gonna throw the ball.
00:41:06
I don't know.
00:41:07
20 to 25 times seems to be the Max.
00:41:10
They may throw the ball with Dwayne Haskins with way they're running the team, and it doesn't really seem to matter what the game flow is either.
00:41:17
So, keeping that in mind, I think age Adrian Peterson, the only running back that you can play, and even then I'm hoping you have a better option.
00:41:25
Play Terram Glory in this game, please.
00:41:27
I know everyone's all upset about Dwayne Haskins and the thing that that the college report that these guys were supposed to have has not worked out to the way people wanted it to.
00:41:39
I don't care.
00:41:40
You're playing against the New York Jets.
00:41:42
If you're not going to play terrible Lauren against the New York Jets, Who on earth are you going to play him against for the rest of the season? He might as well not even be on your roster.
00:41:50
If you don't play him this week, play him.
00:41:52
He's a wide receiver three with tremendous upside and on.
00:41:55
Lee takes one play because he's explosive.
00:41:57
You're playing against the Jets, who are terrible, especially the secondary.
00:42:00
Right now, they're so banged up, they don't even have Johnson anymore.
00:42:04
Play Terry McLaurin.
00:42:05
Do not get afraid of Dwayne Haskins playing as a starter.
00:42:10
There's no reason to that wraps it up for the rescue on the Jets side of the ball.
00:42:16
Obviously you have lady on Belle has been great.
00:42:18
You finally scored that.
00:42:23
And the other good news is, is that even though he didn't practice today, it was only because illness and even though he keeps getting these reports that he's banged up on Mondays out of nowhere because he keeps finishing games and all of the money is like, Oh, yeah, you remember the last.
00:42:35
Remember yesterday? Oh, yeah.
00:42:36
That game.
00:42:37
Yeah.
00:42:38
Lady on Bell got banged up that we didn't know anything about it.
00:42:42
Don't worry about it.
00:42:43
Wait. John Bell.
00:42:44
Get his full workload.
00:42:45
He will always have a high floor.
00:42:47
Because of that workload, you're hopefully just continue to get in.
00:42:49
The red zone is a good match up here.
00:42:51
He continues his great matchup.
00:42:53
Stretch here, Really, just to in general, Jamie's a Crowder.
00:42:56
You can also play him, especially in full point PPR.
00:42:58
Right now, he's the Onley Jets wide receiver that is dependable on a week to week basis.
00:43:03
You know he's going to be involved now, whether it's the Mary's Thomas or Robbie Anderson on the other side.
00:43:07
That could be up for grabs, and I wouldn't trust either one of those guys.
00:43:10
I wouldn't play either one of those guys, but you know, James A.
00:43:13
Crowder will play.
00:43:15
He's actually a little bit of touchdown tear.
00:43:16
Now he's had two weeks in a row where he scored.
00:43:20
This is a revenge game for James, the crowd as well.
00:43:23
So if he wasn't already being consistently worked into the offense, there's no reason in my mind why they wouldn't put an extra emphasis on letting him get his revenge on the Washing Redskins in this week.
00:43:33
So I'm definitely playing James a crowd of my lives, especially in full point.
00:43:36
PPR leaks.
00:43:38
I'm not screaming Sam Darnold.
00:43:41
He's had two weeks in a row now where if he was going to be a streaming quarterback, he should have been and he should have been a top end guy and both weeks in a row, he finished with less than 2050 yards and one touchdown, not to mention turnovers to come with that.
00:43:54
I'm not playing Sam Donaldson.
00:43:56
Streaming option now.
00:43:57
Tight end position.
00:43:59
Ryan Griffin.
00:44:00
Yeah, go ahead, pick him up. Play him.
00:44:02
He's got a high floor.
00:44:03
He's been worked in.
00:44:04
He has.
00:44:05
He's been quietly having a pretty could season with no Chris for non.
00:44:10
There he's done for the year.
00:44:12
Brian Griffin somebody you can plug and play and know that.
00:44:14
At least he's gonna have a pulse for you.
00:44:16
He's gonna be an option in the red zone.
00:44:18
He actually has a floor that he won't.
00:44:20
He won't goose you.
00:44:22
He won't.
00:44:23
He's been worked into much to goose you so you can pick up in play.
00:44:25
Ryan Griffin's actually be one of my top end streaming tight.
00:44:28
End's going into this week, believe it or not.
00:44:32
So now it's stick.
00:44:33
We go back to the NFC South, we have the Falcons, we have the Carolina Panthers and we have a lot of questions per usual.
00:44:41
But on the Falcon side, the bullet they got, they got decimated by injury.
00:44:45
Who? Austin Hooper gone for a month? Devante Freeman.
00:44:48
Definitely out this week, maybe two weeks.
00:44:51
Sounds like he wanted having a pretty mild midfoot spring, which is good news, offered von Freeman owners.
00:44:57
He's definitely missed this week, though.
00:44:59
I know I know.
00:45:00
What's his face? Dan Quinn said that he's gonna be a long shot.
00:45:03
The play he's not even an option play.
00:45:06
So maybe Brian Hill mine.
00:45:08
Everyone got on the waiver wire report.
00:45:10
Really Probably number one guy on everyone's waiver wire reports this week without a doubt. Play him.
00:45:15
He's in a position right now where he could be actually looking at 20 plus touches heading into this match up.
00:45:20
And the Carolina Panthers have actually been another team that, as of late, have been getting gashed in the running game of the middle.
00:45:26
Well, as Falcon's often over one storm is going to be back this week or not yet, but they are getting healthy across that offensive line.
00:45:33
They are playing a little bit better.
00:45:35
Matt Ryan didn't practice today, but he is expected to play on Sunday.
00:45:38
So no worries, really.
00:45:40
There Julio Jones even have the Which brings me to my next point with Muslim from point.
00:45:50
We have to talk about when talking about.
00:45:51
The fact is, this is Calvin Ridley play.
00:45:54
Calvin Ridley.
00:45:55
Play up is not a second area scares you in Carolina Panthers.
00:45:59
No more awesome Hooper.
00:46:00
Now here's what I Here's what I will say before I tell you guys that play Calvin Ridley.
00:46:05
If he doesn't do it this week with no Austin Hooper and doesn't take advantage of the fact that he should have way more volume heading his direction now, if it turns out, Russell gauge winds of stealing that that volume, Then I don't know.
00:46:19
There's gonna be a week this season.
00:46:26
That's what it boils down to.
00:46:27
It is that you were dire situation or Calvin really owner moving for it if they can trust him or not.
00:46:32
But there's just no reason in my mind, given his ability, given the lack of options now available to do them outside of Julio Jones, that Calvin really should not re emerged as a high and wide receiver. Three. Lohan.
00:46:44
Why received to potentially? It's there.
00:46:47
It's up.
00:46:48
He didn't have a terrible game last week.
00:46:49
Four catches, 70 yards.
00:46:50
Not great, but not terrible.
00:46:53
He's got to take advantage of the opportunity.
00:46:55
Is there gonna be before him starting this week? I think you can play Calvin Ridley in your lineup this week as your Flex play as your wide receiver, three.
00:47:04
Maybe even in a wide receiver to position if you're hindered by by weeks.
00:47:08
But I think you can go ahead and play, Um, in that scenario as well.
00:47:12
On the painter side, the ball, it's pretty straight forward at this point.
00:47:16
Chris McCaffrey, number one, running back overall having historic season.
00:47:19
You just can't say enough about the guy right now and to go with it, D.
00:47:23
J Oh, he continued to be a guy that you can go to now.
00:47:33
I wish you would find the end zone more.
00:47:35
It really does think, because if he found the end zone, more deejay more be a wide receiver, one for fancy football purposes.
00:47:41
Problem that he runs into is that he's just not that touchdown guy.
00:47:44
They don't go to him in those situations enough, so he's always gonna get you lately.
00:47:49
Seven and nine catches a door, 100 yards.
00:47:52
You can't ask for much more than that.
00:47:54
He is a high end, wide receiver to, and if he does score, he will get you in the UAE receiver one territory and against the Atlanta Falcons.
00:48:00
He definitely has that possibility, given you that Curtis Samuel.
00:48:05
He actually has been scoring.
00:48:07
Believe it or not, the last couple of weeks in D. J.
00:48:10
Moore's place, I guess you could say and he's been having a pretty good season so far.
00:48:13
He hasn't getting targeted.
00:48:14
The in a sneaky shootout game cursed a meal against the land Falcons which is a plus match up again.
00:48:29
Don't take out what you saw this week.
00:48:30
With the Atlanta defense being able to play really well against the Saints offense, don't expect that to happen again.
00:48:36
Degree match up.
00:48:37
I think you could play Kurdish state wide receiver three with upside as well, lower and obviously, but a wide receiver.
00:48:43
Three.
00:48:44
With upside for shore, He's gonna He's gonna have an opportunity for a big play.
00:48:48
So, Curtis, Same with somebody.
00:48:49
I think you can play with some confidence heading into this week, and definitely I like quite a bit in a DEA fest play.
00:48:54
If you're looking to do that this week as well.
00:48:57
Greg Olsen look, given the tight end position, given that he was worked back into the rotation a bit more last week.
00:49:06
If I saw them go to him and target him, it was a plus matchup against Green Bay Packers.
00:49:10
They were a defense that happens to set the pool too tight, and so far this season, stockings were no different.
00:49:15
I think Greg Olsen can be an option for you to pick up in stream now.
00:49:19
I don't want you guys come yelling at me if he wants up, giving you like a to catch performance, because that's still a likely scenario.
00:49:25
Just given how this offense has run and when they don't have to go to Greg Olsen, they haven't necessarily made it an emphasis.
00:49:32
But in a matchup like this, where you're just desperate looking for a tight end Greg Olsen, you could do a lot worse than Greg Olsen.
00:49:37
Let's put it that way.
00:49:38
I need somebody who should be on your radar's if you're in that situation.
00:49:43
The last game that we're gonna talk about in this episode before we get into the mailbag segment is the Houston Taxes and the Baltimore Ravens last early Sunday afternoon.
00:49:52
Gator, we're gonna talk about here.
00:49:54
So we got the Houston Texans coming off a bye.
00:49:56
Sounds like they got healthier coming off that by two.
00:49:58
Will Fuller, back at practice practice and full today, expected, could get her at any given moment.
00:50:07
We all know this is a possibility, but a all of the magic of the Baltimore Ravens, but it only takes one play.
00:50:15
Marcus Peters is going to see quite a bit of DeAndre Hopkins now.
00:50:18
They don't they don't shadow again, but he lines up on that side of the field more times than not, and with willful or back, they actually don't travel Hopkins as much as they do when he's not in the ball game.
00:50:29
They also don't target hockey quite as much when, well, fuller eyes in the ball game.
00:50:33
So I do think he has Why receiver for with upside potential.
00:50:39
And that's why he's not wide receiver three.
00:50:41
He's not going to a wide receiver three until you see it, because even when he had been on the field earlier this season, his production was highly inconsistent, to say the least, So is not going to have be given the Houston Texans off of line.
00:51:00
At the moment, being as banged up as is is going.
00:51:02
I only they're gonna find great success on the ground against the Ravens this week, so they're gonna and there have passed first offense anyway.
00:51:09
But I think they're gonna have to go to the air.
00:51:12
I think willful or somebody in a wide receiver. Four.
00:51:14
I think it's an interesting D.
00:51:15
F s play if you're looking to go that way, but he's somebody who could be on your radar's depending on what your lineups we're giving you this week.
00:51:22
DeAndre Hopkins.
00:51:23
Obviously you play.
00:51:24
Um uh, Carlos.
00:51:26
Hi.
00:51:27
He's just somebody.
00:51:28
Even in tougher matchups, He still gives you R B three upside.
00:51:31
He is the guy to go to in the gold line.
00:51:33
They try to use him to establish the run game.
00:51:35
He's pretty much been guaranteed for most Part 15 carries a game.
00:51:41
He's an R B three this week, going into a bye week with four teams on by and given the running back injuries at the moment, you could do worse than Carlos Hyde do Johnson.
00:51:49
I'm not trusting him.
00:51:50
Still, he was getting worked in a little bit more before we headed into the bye weeks.
00:51:53
That's the good news.
00:51:56
It does open up.
00:51:57
The possibility it could be a flex guy for peopIe are leagues, but you can't trust it.
00:52:02
They still don't have the ball off the running backs enough and with willful or back in the mix.
00:52:06
I do wonder how much of a part that played in them going to do Johnson Maur.
00:52:10
As of late in the passing game, they might not feel the need to now.
00:52:15
They might just go back to their down the field throwing ability with Kenny Stills and well, full on DeAndre half gets, and that might be the way they choose to attack.
00:52:23
I also think that takes away Volume Farm, Darren Fells and Jordan Akins too tight ends that have been playable.
00:52:30
You don't know which one's going to be there, fellas.
00:52:32
Been guy worked in more so fells.
00:52:37
But you don't really love this match against Baltimore Ravens and with Wolf Puller back is I think it's gonna You're gonna be so contingent on that touchdown.
00:52:44
I don't know how much I would trust it this week.
00:52:46
I think you can find other options outside Darren Fells and the song Watson.
00:52:50
Obviously, we'll finish this Q B one on the Baltimore Ravens side the ball.
00:52:54
Lamar Jackson will continue to compete with Pat Mahomes being the number one fantasy quarterback Weekend week out.
00:53:00
You should have no problem rushing this game.
00:53:02
Houston Texans don't have a defense.
00:53:04
I know they played well against Jacksonville Jaguars.
00:53:06
I expect them to be blown up every single game for the rest of the season.
00:53:11
No, J. J.
00:53:12
Watt, no pass rush No secondary.
00:53:14
I think you can play all your Ravens and f Y I.
00:53:18
I know the practice reports came out that today you had, you know, Mark Ingram and practice, not injury related marquees.
00:53:24
Birth really practice their players a lot.
00:53:27
If you haven't noticed, there's been a kind of throughout the week thing.
00:53:30
There's no doubt about Hallmark anger marquees Brown, Mark Andrews Any of their availabilities this week, No doubt about it.
00:53:36
And there's no doubt about it that you can play everything. One of these guys.
00:53:39
It was nice to see that marquees Brown got back to actually putting up a decent stat line last week.
00:53:44
Four catches, 80 yards and a touchdown on the Cincinnati Bengals.
00:53:47
You know who's worse in the Bangles when giving up the big play in the passing game.
00:53:51
Houston Taxes.
00:53:53
Yeah, you can play marquees Brown this week.
00:53:55
He's a wide receiver, three with tremendous upside, so I would go ahead.
00:53:59
I was sticking in your lives.
00:54:00
I would play him again this week, just like I told you guys to play him against the Bengals last week.
00:54:05
What more is gonna have all of his weapons available to him.
00:54:07
Mark Andrew's gonna be a top possibly top five tight end this week.
00:54:11
Mark Ingram should run the ball well, you can play all of your Ravens that you would normally play without any hesitations whatsoever.
00:54:18
It's nice about Team that they're pretty straightforward, this kind of a match up.
00:54:23
There's no question that you can play all of them and have a good expectation from everyone involved.
00:54:29
So that wraps up our preview episode, our preview games, the early afternoon games, the Thursday night game.
00:54:36
We will be back on Friday, and that will be regularly scheduled Friday morning.
00:54:40
I'll be back on SportsCastr recording that full episode.
00:54:43
Life will be back then with the Thursday football recap, the four o'clock preview games, the Sunday night preview and the Monday night preview as well.
00:54:51
Of course, all the mailbag segment, too.
00:54:53
But right now what we're gonna do is get into the mailbag segment here.
00:54:57
Now I have a couple questions I pre selected out that I normally d'oh ah, and that that you can always contact me on for at M.
00:55:05
D S F F show on Twitter at M D F F show on Facebook or in.
00:55:09
Contact me through email and the f f show dot com, which you can always check out for the rankings there as well.
00:55:18
So that's why you can always contact me through the week.
00:55:20
I always select a few questions to put on here.
00:55:22
If you're on SportsCastr right now and you have a famous football question, go ahead and drop it in the chat and I will get to it through the episode.
00:55:28
So the first question I have pre selected up here is from Victor.
00:55:33
He contact me through email.
00:55:35
He asked me Philip Rivers or Jimmy Garoppolo this week.
00:55:38
That's a very excellent streaming quarterback question.
00:55:41
That's why I picked it out.
00:55:43
I think a lot of people are gonna be in that situation this week.
00:55:46
Russell Wilson owners and whatnot.
00:55:48
So off the two, it's hard to say I would lean towards.
00:55:55
We just don't There's a lot about Francisco we don't know about right.
00:55:57
We know there's kills out right what? No. One.
00:56:05
He will be a good streaming options.
00:56:07
Well, now the Mayo Sanders does not like Jimmy Grapple is not even a streaming option even gets the Arizona Cardinals.
00:56:12
Because I'm not going to trust him, only being able to run the ball of Depot Samuel, which essentially, what would be boiled down to.
00:56:17
At that point, they're gonna just run the ball in play defense and trying to win that way.
00:56:20
That would be the game planning its Cardinals.
00:56:21
There's not gonna be much passing involved.
00:56:23
And I don't think the Carters gonna play quite as well against them this week as they did in Thursday night game and be able to keep the game quite as close to push Jimmy Garoppolo to have to be more aggressive and actually passed more as well.
00:56:37
So but a tomato stick plays grab.
00:56:39
Lo is a streaming option, but I would lean more towards full rivers.
00:56:42
You know, the Chiefs are going to put points plain and simple with passion, homes and all of the weapons healthy.
00:56:47
All the Chiefs.
00:56:48
That offense is starting to click on all cylinders.
00:56:51
They're gonna put up points.
00:56:52
I know offense blind should be okay.
00:56:57
We think Russell Kong's going to buy some of the big for him, and for Melvin Gordon, he's gonna have all of his weapons.
00:57:02
With Mike Williams and Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry and is gonna have awesome heckler Melvin Gordon to go to in the passing game as well.
00:57:09
So I do think the volume is just going to be there.
00:57:11
They're going to have to score.
00:57:12
They're going to have to try to put up at least 30 points in this game to be in order to keep up.
00:57:17
Quite frankly, as long as that's the case, the volume alone makes you lean towards Philip Rivers as a safe, streaming option this week, even though he hasn't played as well as of late.
00:57:28
But I think he's gonna be okay in this one.
00:57:29
I think you got a good shot for 300 yards.
00:57:32
I have a good shot for a couple of touchdowns, but I think most of overall the volume should give you a safe force.
00:57:37
I would lean towards Philip Rivers there.
00:57:39
Victor, Next question I have is from guy from Facebook.
00:57:44
Worry contacted me.
00:57:45
Ask halfway, Brian Hill or Marvin Jones.
00:57:53
It is flax.
00:57:54
First of all, I have to say you have some pretty good options there for your flex position.
00:57:58
I would definitely rule Marvin Jones out of that group right off the bat.
00:58:03
because he's not a running back who's in a position to possibly get 20 plus touches, right? But the other two are so automatically I'm ruling Marvin Jones out, regardless of whether Matthew Stafford place or not.
00:58:13
So we're looking at Daniel Williams looking up.
00:58:14
Ryan help.
00:58:15
This is a tough one if the Shaw McCoy's going be in active again, and we may not know that till Monday night, so that's the problem with that.
00:58:22
But if we somehow know beforehand, LaShawn McCoy will once again be inactive.
00:58:27
I have to.
00:58:28
Do you go Damian Williams, because you just you have.
00:58:30
You got to get a piece of that Chiefsoffense right now.
00:58:32
And if Daniel is in position where he's going to be getting, however, that 20 touches comes to be.
00:58:41
And if you're 1/2 point PPR, you might want to come form or of the passing game than not.
00:58:46
Anyway, uh, he's gonna have a hell of a floor, and he's gonna have an opportunity to score Brian Hill.
00:58:53
He's he's got a hell of Flora's well because he's going to have that workhorse role.
00:58:57
But he's an unproven commodity because the Carolina defense that while has been susceptible is still not bad on paper, and Atlanta Falcons offense is very offensive line, I should say, is very suspect.
00:59:09
So that's where I think you'd have to go with Damian Williams.
00:59:12
And this one is close.
00:59:14
It's close, and it wouldn't shock me for one minute.
00:59:15
Brian Helen. A big game.
00:59:17
But I think there's a and I think you have to play a guy on the Chiefsoffense slightly tortures Damion Williams.
00:59:31
If we find out LaShawn McCoy is going to be active, I may take another look.
00:59:35
Brian Hill in that scenario, because it is LaShawn McCoy suddenly is active.
00:59:38
You can suspect that will be worked in, and then all of a sudden the entire situation, the cancer, the backfield gets thrown right in flocks all over again.
00:59:46
But I would definitely take another look at that.
00:59:48
But right now I would lean towards Damian Williams, KJ from Twitter.
00:59:52
He asked me in the flex position, Jamison Crowder or more keys Brown.
00:59:59
That's a good one.
01:00:01
I think.
01:00:02
James A.
01:00:03
Crowder has a hell of a floor revenge game.
01:00:04
He's been worked in as a dependable targets, and Sam Darnold has been back.
01:00:08
I would probably lean towards marquees Brown.
01:00:11
If I'm looking for a home run threat, look, he's got a great opportunity here against the Houston Texans to get a big play, even possibly have a big game.
01:00:19
We saw him be able to come back.
01:00:22
I have a solid one.
01:00:23
He has just as good of a match up here against Houston.
01:00:26
And I would say in some ways, that's even a better matchup.
01:00:28
Because at least Houston has the offensive firepower to keep up with the Ravens.
01:00:33
Like this game's not going to 49 to 10.
01:00:35
It's gonna be much more competitive for 4/4.
01:00:37
Mean the offense.
01:00:38
The passing game might actually have to be involved for 4/4 where they didn't have to be last week.
01:00:44
So in some ways is actually could work out even more so in marquees Brown's favor than it did a week ago.
01:00:49
I love them both.
01:00:50
I think it would depend on what your lineup needs if you're in a situation where you just need more of a floor play, that I would probably play James Socratic.
01:00:57
So I think you're guaranteed, you know, 6 to 9 targets, 5 to 7 receptions however many yards and being, he's been on a touchdown.
01:01:05
Terror.
01:01:06
As of late, there's a chance you could score a touchdown.
01:01:08
A revenge game against the Redskins.
01:01:09
They may put an emphasis on that, so he just he has.
01:01:11
The floor you could sink your teeth into are leaks.
01:01:15
But we're looking to hit a home run and play a guy who doesn't have a low floor this week.
01:01:21
I think marquees Brown's that guy.
01:01:22
And I think, personally, I would lean towards marquees Brown and go after that upside because I think he has a saver floor than they normally would in other matchups to That's gonna wrap up the show for today.
01:01:32
