Part of people with your boyfriend is here again for another SportsCastr Live coming to you out of Winston Salem, North Carolina.
This is coming to us.
Well, from rap Sports Network was the finish line podcast.
Make sure you follow him on Twitter.
Finnish sports on Twitter actually follow us a drop new pike as every Wednesday.
We're gonna talk tomorrow about this game plus all the games on Sunday night and Sunday during the day.
It's well is Ah, a little bit of probably that there's a night game, um, with the whole Mason Rudolph situation and all that.
But I just want to come to you guys before the game starts about about 30 minutes before they start.
So I wanted to kind of talk about some of the fantasy starters who you should start.
You should sit tonight.
Um, I think this will be a very interesting game just because of the implications in this, A f C West.
You got the Kansas City Chiefs who are six or four.
They haven't looked good on these last few games.
And now the Chargers are who are actually 46 which technically still have a chance to make it to the playoffs.
I think it would be interested if they were able to make it cause they have a A team decent enough to make a playoff push and toe, actually, probably maybe win a playoff game.
It's just a matter of whether or not they're gonna play that well, I think the biggest thing is, what is Philip Rivers going to do so as a fantasy? Don't I would not start Phillip Harris and I don't think he's gonna have a good game.
And I think that, you know, he's shown it enough this year this season that he's not the quarterback 12 to 1 a half when you started, you know Oh, you I definitely think that I definitely think a guy like Pat Mahomes gonna win this match up against these charges offense now and not win the game.
I think the charges actually may win this game and the reason being is because the chief still can't stop the running game.
I think that with Melvin Gordon and also we're both being healthy and on the roster and both probably gonna get in some significant plants on tonight I think they're gonna be able to really run the ball against this can see the cheese defense that does struggle against the run, Um, the 22nd on defense right now.
But you know, the charges Air six in rushing offense and are rushing on office, so that will bowled well for them in order to them in order for them to make a really big push in this game.
I think the charges have to start off early, though.
They have to start off consistently through the air.
They have to attack that secondary as well.
Is that running game? Most Melvin Gordon Alcide could start getting, you know, getting those touches and kind of get in a rhythm.
That's when other things opened up.
So I think the biggest thing to kind of look at in this game is who is going to control the ball, who's in control of possessions because that maybe ultimately, who wins the game, um, that the Chiefs can score in spurts and they could score really, really quick.
But it's just a defense.
The defense has not been great this past year and last year on, and I think that's what's going to be their Achilles held in this year.
I think they've also, you know, because of their defense being so, so bad.
That's why I got these four early losses.
It show is showing that their defense there often is going to take him.
So far, the office can only take them as far as Pat Mahomes could take them.
But if Pat Mahomes has no control over the game and he's already done what he could and he's sitting on the sideline, what is your defense gonna do to step up? You know what I'm saying? And I think when you think about a charters team who have, ah, Joey Bosa and a milk Melvin Ingram who are healthy, who will be on that D line rushing Pat Mahomes and start, you know, stopping some of that run from Damian Williams, et cetera.
Um, you're gonna see you're going to see that.
You know, when your offense can't do everything, your defense has to step up.
And not to say that the defense won't step up.
I think they're defensive, definitely step up, especially playing a guy like Philip Rivers, who has made some very ill a vase throws and plays this season, Um, I think you'll see that there's not going to be a huge, um, turn around in this game for Philip Rivers.
I think that he's still gonna play the way he plays and granted.
He makes, you know, had some of those stats where US stats, where he'll actually get, you know, maybe a touchdown.
The two tonight also possibly like around 2 50 to 300 yards passing, But it'll be the turnovers.
You know, Philip Rivers is turn of a problem.
He does throw interceptions, was comfortable and he does take a lot of ***.
And I think that, you know, with the edge rushers on the Can Cities team, they can definitely get the Philip Rivers.
They're offering the charter's office.
Aline is his **** poor, but I think this is gonna be a high offensively play a game.
I think it's gonna be a very big numbers game.
I think they're going to score in Bunches, Um, but I think ultimately with the charge is having a better defense and being able to shut down certain aspects of for this team.
When it comes to like the chief's rushing game.
That'll be the end.
All be all because when he gets down to the fourth quarter, you got that lead and you're trying to win and you're trying to run out the clock.
What's gonna happen if you can't get that first down on the ground and then you buy that time when you're trying to throw? Yeah.
See, you're trying to throw your past and it's not good enough.
I think that's the biggest thing.
We when you look at this cheese team, they have so many weapons.
Most of them are our deep threats.
Me, Cole Harmon's re kill.
You're gonna need a Travis Kelsey to play really, really well tonight in order for them to kind of open up the field.
And I think Travis Kelsey is definitely a starter.
You definitely gotta start him tonight.
And the tight ends are both teams 100 Henry for the charters 100.
Henry's gonna have a hell of a game being able to exploit a little bit of the defense's achieves.
They're both gonna have matchup.
Oh, you They're both gonna have submits message.
So it's going to be extremely difficult for a lot of those guys to be able to go are too tight ends that are as strong and fast as those guys are in their great pass catchers.
So I don't think they'll have a struggle game at all.
It's a man, the other thing.
So when you think about the running game on both sides of the ball, they have some really pretty decent running backs.
Obviously, you know, you got your Melvin Gordon on the charter side, which has been playing well as a recent.
I think he's gonna have a really, really strong game against the seats.
Defense as well as awesome equity may not have the same production as a moment milking border.
I think he's still be productive receiving passes me and it was to get somebody else started down, you know, run stuff like that.
If you're looking for a huge game out of Austin, eh? Clear.
So far, it's fantasy.
I wouldn't count on it.
I would definitely count on the Melvin Gordon part mostly because, you know, last week you saw the kind of ran moving Gordon, you know, throughout the entire game and on the other side of field, you got lost on McCoy and Damian Williams.
I don't think that Damian Williams is gonna have a solid game tonight.
I think he actually was questionable before the start of the game, so I would be kind of careful with wanting to player.
Um, I think he he has the ability to be good and the ability to play really well.
However, um, you know, it depends on the offense that they're playing honestly.
He's had some games where he could rush for over 100 yards, but it was consistently throughout this season, he's only averaged probably a roughly around 25 to 30 yards per game.
Last week, he had 77 years against Tennessee Titans.
Um, and the Tennessee Titans defense is pretty solid, but I think this charges defense is definitely going to give the Chiefs run for their money.
Um, so I would not start Damian Williams kickers.
I would start, um, the Kansas City Chiefs kickers.
Excuse me? Um, here, Sam Bruckner.
I think he's gonna have a solid game.
And the reason why I think that with them being able to score, they're gonna be sometimes where they don't get into the nothing.
That's where here.
Some Bookman is gonna have Ah, really solid game tonight.
He may get you about 11 to 12 prints.
Just based off of the amount of kicks that I do think they will have in this game.
Um And then, of course, you got to start paddling homes at your quarterback.
Um, he's gonna have a Pat Mahomes like game.
I think that, like I said, he's still going to struggle a little bit because I don't think they'll be able to establish the run against a team like the charges.
And I think whenever you have an issue with establishing the run, you're gonna have to lean on him even a lot harder.
And I think it's going to be extremely hard to do that when you got, um, gaps in your offense and on your defense.
Um, the cancer cheese cheese defense may get really tired tonight because they're gonna have to go up against those guys like a King and Island and Mike Williams, who are speedsters and also very, very good route runners.
And, you know, I think they might get exposed a little bit too. In a second there.
The thing toe watching this game is how will the charges beat themselves? I got the charters winning this game.
I do, But how will they beat themselves? The charges have, like notably, had these games where they, you know, being a pawn teams or they've had, you know, came back from a large deficit and then they blow and watered a boot.
They blow it because they're not playing.
I'm smart and consistently, you know.
And I think when you think about this team overall, they have a really true opportunity to really make a playoff push.
If they go in this game, I'm going to go through the next games that the charges actually do have after this can City chief game, Um, and we can kind of go through a see if this is something that they may be able to make the playoffs, because right now, in a F C West, it's not a meeting.
Right now, it's a toss up the Raiders of six and four, the Chiefs or six and four.
So if the Chiefs do lose tonight, the you know, I think they do own the tiebreak over the Raiders, so they may still be in that? Well, actually, they'll be 65 so the Raiders would jump into that number one position and the Chiefs would be the second in the conference.
But let's look at the charter schedule just so we can kind of see what would happen if they can't get a tough way tonight on Monday night, next to have the Broncos.
I think that is a wonderful game.
They have the Jaguars, another winnable game.
That's gonna be a tough one.
But again, I think, you know, if this if this charges team could go on us a little bit of a run, this might be This might be the game where the this might be the stress to do that.
Then they have the Raiders again.
Now the Raiders.
That's gonna be a tough one.
The Raiders probably will be in contention for playoffs as well, so you got to think about how heavenly these divisional games are going to be important to them.
The more divisional games they win, the better on Dhe.
Then, lastly, they'll play the chief's on December 29.
It is my birthday again.
That is another game that they'll have to play under duress that last game of the season.
It could have some very, very important playoff implications for both teams, especially if the Chiefs do lose tonight.
Um, you know, you never really know with AIDS. He was.
Sometimes this somebody just takes off in the years, sometimes they're all kind of mid pack.
Um, which is pretty interesting this year.
I wasn't expecting the ah, the Raiders to be where they are right now.
You know, I didn't think they were going to be pretty solid, but, um, it is very interesting.
Is very interesting to see a Raiders team playing this will under Jon Gruden.
Josh Jacobs is playing like phenomenal a CZ.
Well, it's just, you know, Darren Waller, tyro Williams and Derrick are they have a really solid roster and even on the defense, even with the start of safety out, um, they were playing good football, and I think that the thing that puts the Raiders over the top in this in this conference orders division is the fact that they're healthy, too.
They stay healthy and they say, playing consistent.
If we look at the Raiders remaining schedule, we you know, we already talked about them playing two charges.
But they have the Jets next, then the Chiefs, Titans, Jags charges Broncos.
So there's is a little easier than the charges.
As of right now, Um, so you know, we may see something's changing, that they see what's eating because their schedules a little easier.
Well, for them, too.
And then let's get the Chiefs to see if there is.
I think the chief's has probably the toughest competition out of all of these, So they've got the charges tonight.
Then they're going to go to play, Um, the Open Raiders next.
Then they have the Patriots.
That's gonna be a huge game.
Broncos maybe play the Bears.
That might be a tough one there, there, in Chicago.
And then they play the charges.
Last, um so you know their schedule is pretty pretty consistent with the well, when you think about both of these teams, they have the ability right now to make a statement and t really put it on the books like, Hey, we're here to win games.
We're here to compete at a high level of here to compete for a championship tonight might be, um, tow my tonight might be one of the most important games for his chart listing.
They had a great win against the Green Bay Packers, and then they came in with the bit against Thea, you know, against the Oakland Raiders.
So I think they have the opportunity to really take one from the ship's tonight.
Um, it's Ah, it's Ah, it's a game that is technically not home game for either game or for either team there in Mexico, Mexico City.
So this should be a very, very interesting matchup.
And like I said, Mikey focuses today running the ball.
If the charges can effectively run the ball against his Chiefs defense, they will have no problem when it's winning this game.
However, if the Chiefs considers if the Chiefs can establish a run game with either LaShawn McCoy, Damian Williams, they will win again.
I think my son McCoy may have ah really silent game tonight just because he has a few different Mr Mismatches with a lot of the linebackers that he could be potentially going up against tonight.
But Bosa and Ingram are going to be headhunting going to be stripping for the ball, so I'm excited to see what happens tonight.
But a charters and Kansas City Chiefs.
They're coming up in about 15 to 17 minutes.
