One more step, one more step and M v Nation will be in the championship next week, and that's what it is all about.
So make sure you guys have all the information you possibly need in order to make that happen.
And we're gonna go through all of that today.
But before we get into that, we have first and foremost live on SportsCastr.
On the audio version, you can check this podcast out Google Place that your spot cast pot of Spotify anywhere you go.
The NBC ME football show is widely available to you.
I've talked about a little bit.
How we get into some of these episodes.
We'll talk about what we have in store for us in the future.
What we have in store for us for next year, what you guys have to look forward to, and it's stuff like this.
It's getting more creative on the video.
It's getting more creative and our podcasting in our information and everything that we do to be the best show that we could possibly be for MD Nation to make sure you get not just the best information but the best entertainment as well, making it more fun for you to want to come back and watch the show in SportsCastr dot com.
Or listen to the MD spinning football show on your favorite podcast at.
But that's enough of that for now.
Let's go ahead and get into some football right now.
You can see the topic at the phone. Jones.
I got the the alerts going as well, so there's gonna be a fun time.
We're gonna try this out, see how it works.
But we have a lot.
We have a lot going on here, all right.
And first up, we have the Thursday night game tonight, which we got the Jets.
We have the Ravens, and this figures to be an onslaught.
I mean, I mean, seriously If the Ravens don't blow these guys out by 30 that means they themselves did not have a very good game, and we expect them to be able to do so now.
First off, injuries on the Jets side, the ball lay Veum Bell.
Here he is, expected to going up.
Allow power will not.
And we're still waiting on Jamal Adams, and I know Jamal AM's not a fancy player in him of his own right.
But the reason why we mentioned him is because if Jamal Adams can play, that really does limit the ability of Mark Andrews.
Elise limits his ceiling to some degree.
For those of you wondering, Yes, Mark Andrews is expected to be able to play in this game.
So is Lamar Jackson, by the way.
There was very little doubt once they found out that it was, in fact, a thigh confusion for Mark Andrews.
There's very little doubt that he wasn't going to be able to play, and Lamar Jackson seemed to be okay the entire time, not expecting him to be hindered in any way.
Going into this game, you have to fire up as a Q B one and if you look here on the rankings were gonna pull him up for you.
I'm gonna have the half point PPR rankings up on the you screen behind me for you guys to be able to look at as we go through and talk about some of these players.
And I'm just showing you kind of how we go through the website.
Here have standard rankings half point and if you screw all the way down to get the full point PPR rankings as well.
Now, of course, all of this is on SportsCastr of the only audio version.
You're not seeing this right now, but I always go to check out the website www dot mdf show dot com and you can go ahead and see all of this for yourself.
But as you can see there, I have large Jackson not just ranked as the number one quarterback with number one player of the week and all down here are the positions as well.
So we're gonna go through this as we go now.
As far as the Jets go, who can you play? I don't think you could play anybody in this game going against Baltimore Ravens defense.
This defense, maybe even more so than New England Patriots right now is a defense that I want to try to avoid.
And because the Jets offense in general is so hitter miss, because they have not been able to get a continuity going because their offense of line is probably the worst in football.
I would avoid playing.
Leave Yang Bell, if at all possible.
I would avoid playing Robbie Anderson.
I would avoid playing games. A Crowder.
Not that you really wanted to trust those guys to begin with, but just to give you an idea here off where I have Lavy on Bell, he is all the way down.
Number 34 if you can read them on the screen right there on SportsCastr.
I haven't wrecked number 34 in half point.
PPR leagues making him definitely an RV three.
And on leeway, he bails you out.
The only way he bails you out is if you are in half point B p r or full point PPR leagues and he catches the ball time, which could be possible, but as the only way he bails you out and gives you a floor.
I don't expect to score a touchdown.
I checked in the struggle to get 80 yards from scrimmage.
This is a game in which I expect the Ravens is to completely dominate.
There's no reason to think that they won't now on the rave inside the ball, you're gonna have to play Lamar Jackson.
I think you have to play.
Continue, play Mark Andrews as long as he's good to go, because he has been a tight and one for you and I would even contemplate, depending on what your lineups are, depending on what you need to dio, I would contemplate playing marquees Brown as a high end flex play.
Why Receiver three? Now, this is always a guy that we can utilize in this way.
There's always a guy who might be able to win you a week.
We know this is also a guy who has a low floor, but here's the issue.
Here is the issue against the New York Jets in a game in which they should be able to run the ball.
Now I know the Jets on paper a great against the run, but they had not played a physical team that could run the ball like the Baltimore Ravens are.
I don't expect him to be able to have success in this one stopping the run, what we have here, that's what the issue is.
So with marquees Brown, he's going to have to make a lot of his damage in the first half.
That's where it's going to have to come.
He's gonna have to get his big plays off of play action in the first half because in the second half, and I don't worry about this for all Raven players involved here in the second half, I expect Lamar Jackson, Mark and Girl marquees Brown Mark Andrews.
I accepted to not have to play that much.
Maybe they play into the third quarter, but either halfway through the third quarter or beginning of the fourth quarter, I expect the backups to be in here kind of.
One of the reasons why I think Gus Edwards might be one of the sneaky not in not in redraft formats, not for your playoff matchups.
But if you're doing torments and GFs tonight, I think us I were just somebody you should definitely be adding on to your list because he could see 1/4 and 1/2 for short.
And as you see, I got have belly up sports.
I got the chat going on behind me there I just those guys also on SportsCastr by away belly up sports for you as well, now just continuing on here.
So marquees Brown's going to have to do his damage in the first half in order to really give your productive ity, but because it's the Jets, because that should be there because Mark Andrews is a little bit hinder, so they may look to use marquees brown in the passing game.
Especially early on.
I think you somebody that have you, are in a matchup where you feel like you do not have the firepower to be able to match up with your opponent this week.
This is somebody you can take that shot on and try to even things out and try to go for the jugular course has a low floor and all the pens in your lineup makeup.
But just keep that in mind.
I do like marquees brown quite a bit this particular week.
Now what we have up next is the first early Sunday game that we are going to talk about the Patriots.
Addison Sanadi Bangles, First of all, pagers.
Defense my number one defense on the week because I'll get I'll get him up here for you guys in a second.
Without a doubt, I look, they're playing in Cincinnati Bengals. They're terrible here.
They're right above the San Francisco 40 Niners.
We all know that any Dolphins always good for a couple turnovers.
He's always good for a couple of sacks.
And what we expect to see in this game is just another dominant performance from the New England Patriots.
We expect in the bounce back after the last week against the Chiefs.
There's a great game for them to get some things right.
Get something's going on offense.
I would not be surprised if Sony Michelle was able to make himself a Flex play in this game.
Now, having said that, are you really gonna be able to come into this game and trust Sony Michelle to that? I say, Probably not, Probably not.
How can you trust the guy who got eight yards last week against the Chiefs defense? That should have been ripe for the taking.
How can you trust a guy who is not, hasn't scored a touchdown since the New York Jets six weeks ago? They haven't been utilizing him.
They haven't really utilize the run.
The Patriots right now have no identity on offense.
So there's a foot side of that coin, which is This could be the game in which you establish what your identity is.
That's that's that's what it is, that this is a game you can get right.
It's very few times that these games come along this point in the season.
This is an opportunity for them to get right, and I have to think with the way their defense is, the Patriots are going to have to realize because of Tom Brady, because the lack of the weapons in the passing game that they have to get this run game going for the playoffs if they want to go back to another Super Bowl.
This is the perfect game against Cincinnati Bangles.
To get that run, games in confidence and get it going moving forward, the question is going to be are they going to stick to it or are they going to do what they continue to do over the past few weeks and build our identity around shotgun and James White.
Now, as far as injuries go in this game, Julian Edelman is expected to be fine.
Yes, he did not practice yesterday, but it's not expected to be, Ah, big deal whatsoever.
And as long as far as the Cincinnati Bengal side of all goes, yes, on Tate on the I R.
He's done for the year.
John Ross is back.
He played a little bit last week with no on Tate.
He could find himself in a situation where he may need to play a significant role sooner rather than later and be neighbors would back a week ago.
We expect to see him play a little bit more in this week, expecting get his feet wet a little bit more.
Now look, I mentioned John Ross as more of a D of s play for those of you, maybe are in the playoffs or still played the best tournaments on the side along with your redraft leaks.
He's somebody against.
I know what I'm saying.
I know it's against the Patriots defense, but in a game in which I expected to be, Let's say, an immense amount of garbage time, meaning probably the entire second half of this ball game.
I think John Ross, to find themselves in a situation where he could very well get a bomb could very well just be left out there and just a slip coverage.
They don't care anymore.
Games well in hand and kind of scores off of that.
It's a one play for John Ross.
It's all it takes.
So the F S leagues, You want somebody really, really cheap? Who has that capability? Who I think might be ableto little defense asleep in the second half? He's that guy, obviously.
Don't love it, obviously, just a thorn in play, obviously just a contrarian play.
But I just kind of want to mention in there because he will have a bigger role with Noel.
More on Tate out there.
As far as the rest of guys go.
As far as redraft lease goes far, your playoff matchups go.
You can't trust anybody on the Bangles.
The only guy I'm even contemplating playing here would be Joe Mixon.
That's the only one I would even contemplate playing in this situation, and that's because one he's implying really well as of late.
That offense of line of the Cincinnati Bengals is much better than it has been in quite some time now that the Cordy Glenn is back in the mix and the Patriots have shown that their one weakness that they do have is against the rushing attacks.
There you have Joe Mixon.
He's number 21 a half point PPR in my rankings this week, something to kind of keep in mind there.
I'm basically saying that he is a low an RV.
To he is a high end flex play outside of Joe Mixon.
I'm not trusting, but that that includes how there, boy.
Yes, he'll be the number one targeted wide receiver.
Yes, they should be.
Yes, the painters have been as good as pass catchers, or the least.
They haven't been quite the shutdown team.
But this is a game which I expected to be the shutdown thing that they were earlier on the season because they're ripe for the picking, the ripe for the picking.
So I'm playing to a mix and I'm staying away from everybody else if I can all help it now, if you're a full point, PPR leaks and you don't have a lot of options.
Tyler Boyd Will teachers, even in a bad match, somehow leap into six catches for 60 yards and you get 12 points at Tyler Boyd.
That's fine for a wide receiver. Three.
It's fine for a flex player if you're talking about full point, PPR leaks, but it's the only scoring format I think of that.
I'm contemplating wanting to actually play him in my playoff matchup in this particular week, Moving on here to our next game.
We have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Detroit Lions.
We gotta talk about the injuries here, right? Because in this one, we have James Winston, who hurt his hand, was questionable.
Looks like he's gonna play.
He practiced without throwing a football yesterday, however, the hell that works, but he was a practice on the limit capacity Head coach Bruce Arians comes out and says right away he expects him to be good to go.
So as long as that is truly going to be the case, we expect Chris Godwin to be able to do his thing, will he be shadowed by Darius Light? Yes, absolutely.
But elite receivers have still been able to find success against variously.
Stefan Dave was able to go for six catches for 92 yards.
Now, while digs in his of himself has a history of being able to play well against area Slam, one of the few wide receivers that do Chris God was going to get all kinds of targets.
Mike Evans has gone.
He's done for the year.
It's gonna have to go to other people besides Chris Guy one.
But take the targets.
He has had an ad, I'd say, at least somewhere between two and four extra per game to finish out the rest of the season you give.
Chris got an extra 2 to 4 targets the rest of the season.
I think you're going to see a guy who's still even in tough matchups, even though he's going to be the number one.
Focus off the defense is now for the last three weeks is somebody who's going to still give you wide receiver one performances week in and week out, and that includes against Detroit Lions here.
They're going to have to throw.
It's going to have to be off the volume based type of thing.
So I am not worried about Chris God, the only thing that was going to make me worried about him as if James Winston was not gonna be able to play, which, as of right now, from the sound of it, it sounds like that will in fact be the case You will be able to go.
Everyone seems like he'll be able to go.
So will he have a chance for re injury? Yeah, you will, but I'm willing to take that chance, especially Chris Collins, who's been an elite receiver who is the reason why you're up there.
And as you can see, I have no fear because I have Chris Godwin, the number through receiver on the week in half point.
So that is what we're doing there.
That's what we expect there.
So no worries on Ahrens.
Far as that goes, I've been getting a lot of questions about Chris Godwin.
As faras of running backs go, it's it's been a It's been a pain in the ass all year long Table buccaneer running backs.
We we all we all know that, but expect Ronald Jones to get some work here.
Expect Peyton Barber to just go back to being a goal line back a runner that he is.
But with no Mike Evans, the targets have to go somewhere.
So all of a sudden, things for O.
Howard and things for Ronald Jones open up a bit.
There should be extra targets, extra dump offs.
There should be.
There has to be another guy on the field who can shut your seem, who could make big 50 50 ball plays.
And that guy has to be O. J.
Now, I am not going to be the expert who tells you go out.
Howard and claiming your redraft leisure playoffs and not and not gonna be that guy, because how can you try? So J.
Howard after the season he has had? I'm just saying actual targets should be there.
He has been playing more more staffs as of Lee.
Even before Mike Evans had the injury and went out last week.
I think there's room to believe they've you're just streaming tight ends and you're in that desperate area of you're in the area of your looking at David.
A joke against the cardinals.
You're looking at Jacob Hollister.
You're looking at, you know, uh, not Ryan Griffin, but you're looking at guys in that area.
Howard has to be added in to that group.
He has to be because O.
J. Howard, it has the talent.
And now, if he actually has the target's coming his way, we may get to see the last three weeks.
J. Howard. We expected to see all season long.
That's what we're looking at here.
So let's put it this way.
I like him a lot more in tournament leagues, for sure, but I don't mind of you want to take a chance on him Extremely tight ends, anyway, to take a chance on in your read Dr Playoff Leagues because those extra targets should be there along with Ronald Jones.
That Ron Jones issues is honesty doesn't fumble.
I think he's gonna give you a ****.
Performers, especially here in half point for point PPR league, but you do have to worry about him fumbling on the Detroit Lions side of the ball again.
We're not expecting any Matthew Stafford.
Why they won't just put him on.
I are at this point is beyond me, but we're not expecting any Matthew Stafford Right now.
Marvin Jones Jr is on the I r.
So that opens up even more targets for Kenny Golladay, which has sort of been an issue right.
While Kenny Golladay has had two good weeks in a row now with David Blau one huge weekend and last week he finds the end zone.
So he still gives you a solid performance there.
He still had only been seeing about five targets now with the old Marvin Jones Jr.
I expect him to get back up to his normal eight target range, at least and in this game, if Tampa Bay is able to score even without Mike Evans and let's be real, there's been plenty games they have been able to do that without his productivity.
I expect this game ice with Detroit, the half the throw the ball and have to be aggressive in this one.
I mean, that's how you attack.
Tampa Bay is a great matchup.
On top of it, if Kenny Golladay gets eight targets or more with the absence of Marvin Jones and is the number one touchdown guy.
I expect a big day out of him as I have a number seven.
You could see it there on the screen.
If you're watching on sports guys, I have him number seven and 1/2 point PPR league this week.
For that reason, he's got a hell of a floor and he's got a hell of a ceiling going into this matchup.
Especially no Marvin Jones.
So that's that's the good news for Kenny Galati.
Now, As far as both scar ball goes, he's expected to play.
Yes, he had a rib injury, but he should be good to go.
Ah, he was never considered that serious to begin with.
He practicing limit capacity yesterday.
Now you don't love the match up here, but Tampa Bay hasn't been quite just not just not as quite as stout as they have been.
Ah, in the weeks leading up to this point, just not quite.
It's still pretty good, still really good, and the storylines still have no offensive line.
But Scar Ball has been getting 20 plus touches.
Every single he's been a starter that figures to continue against Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
If they get in close, he will have justice could have a chance to score as anybody.
I'm not looking at him and half one PPR league.
I'm not really looking at him in full point PPR league because you just not involved in the passing game at all.
But if you're in a standard leak, both scar ball to me is somebody who should be a flex guy.
And actually, we can utilize this here.
I have my standard league rankings as well, and we can check that out, too, to see exactly where we have him ranked.
Ah, this week and we have him number 31.
So I'm telling you that he is a high and R B three high end Flex play for you this week in Standard Lead.
What is that half point full point? PPR League? I'm not gonna touch him because it's not a good match against Tampa Bay.
We don't expect him to get, you know, 80 100 yards rushing.
You're hoping for a touchdown and he's not involved at all in the passing a button Standard league get away.
You could get away with 60 yards and a touchdown, which is something I think is very, very possible for him to be able to do against him.
Bay in this one.
And as far as everybody else goes, Look, Jesse James.
I know it's Tampa Bay, another terrible against the tight end outside taking a shot on him and GFS because of the Marvin Jones factor because there might be extra targets to go around somebody else.
I think those extra targets are gonna go between Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola.
Not really going to be a tight end situation now.
Matthew Stafford was playing in this game.
I think I'd be a totally different scenario.
I think Jesse James would be somebody who is actually something we would talk about as a sleeper this week.
But because it's David Blouse, it's not Matthew Stafford.
I don't think we can find ourselves in this situation to play him in redraft leagues or really even take a chance on him and torment these, other than just a super deep, contrarian, cheap play that that would be it.
But not something we're recommending here on the MD S****i football show next game up.
We'll talk about Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and this one first officer's.
The injuries go Taylor Gabriel is still not practicing with a concussion injury, so that's unfortunate there.
What it does mean is that Anthony Miller continues his role as the number two wide receiver.
Now there's still a chance that Taylor Gabriel could wind up being cleared to go by the end of the week.
But usually speaking, if you don't start practicing on Wednesday when you're still dealing with concussion, it typically does not look good for you for the rest of the week.
Obviously, things can change.
Obviously, you see there on the screen on SportsCastr deejay Shark did not practice again today.
I don't know why they keep updating him.
I don't know why they won't just put him on I r.
With that high ankle sprain.
I doubt he'll play again this season.
Just which 1/3 out there as Adler was coming in, Um, as we're saying, we're Taylor Gabriel.
We don't expect them really be able to play this week, so Anthony Miller will continue his second wide receiver status.
While he had the touchdown last week, he only had two catches for 40 yards.
He's not trustworthy. Option.
He's not somebody you should be playing to redraft leagues.
Unless you're in 14 or 16 team leagues, Then I could see it more half point for point.
Then I could understand the appeal. The plane.
But if you're in 12 team leads, 10 team leaks, I think there's absolutely no reason why you can't find a better option outside of Anthony Miller this week.
But having said all that Alan Robinson, I like a lot.
I like allowing Robinson a ton this week.
First of all, the Green Bay Packers and I've been harping on this.
Pretty much of some temper at this point are not the secondary are not the defense that everyone tries to make him out to be. They're not.
They are. They're decent.
They're not terrible match up there on that.
They're not terrible, obviously, but they're not great.
They're they're not something that should scare you away.
And if you have a good wide receiver going up against this defense, they can have justice.
High of a ceiling just as good of a floor as any other game for anybody.
So I'm still trying to find Alan Robinson here.
I thought I'm howto had him high higher up as we as we scroll through the half point PPR leagues.
Now, I do have him generally speaking as a wide receiver.
Three as a guy who can possibly get you a touchdown or two.
And against the Green Bay Packers.
Yeah, I expect him to be the number one target a guy I expected to be somebody you can lean on areas I kept screwing passed on a couple of times.
They're sorry for that.
He's number 16 on the week for me at the half point PPR scoring format.
So, yes, you could play Alan Robson.
I actually have them in the wide receiver to range this particular week against the Green Bay Packers.
Hey, you gotta update here.
Evan Ingraham. Actually, I might practice today.
That's nothing we were not expecting and we're gonna get into that game in a little while here, but Evan Ingram might be able to practice today that just coming across the desk now, uh, getting back to Alan Robson.
I think you got a fire him up. You gotta play him this week.
He's always on a two game stretch now.
We've been very good.
The Chicago Bears play calling has been the big change here, right? They have gotten back to motioning guys playing guys left and right, Um, moving guys in.
And now Alan Robinson, especially.
He's been lined up in the slot.
He's been outside, he's been all over the field.
They're finally getting mistress.
You going with our pose? It's still not great.
It's still Mitchell risky.
But against the Green Bay Packers here, Alan Robson, somebody I expect to be able to be a wide receiver to for you this week so you can go ahead and fire him up the same thing with David Montgomery.
David uncovers an RV to I know it's been.
I know it's been rough.
I know he's been very inconsistent.
I know he's been a headache, but here's the thing about David Montgomery.
He should get somewhere between 16 to 20 touches this week somewhere as long as he gets somewhere between 16 to 20 touches this week, I expect him to put up at least RV two numbers, if not flex numbers, because the Green Bay Packers are terrible against the run, and with the way the bear's been playing as of Lee, I do give him a better chance to score a touchdown.
Then maybe he was, Ah, month ago.
So David Montgomery something also could fire up to.
That's it is Robinson is Dave Montgomery.
I'm staying away from everybody else's faras fancy purposes. Go.
No, I'm not ready to stream Mr Drew Pinsky.
Are you for your redraft leaks? Because I'm not, and there's no way in hell I want to tell you to do so.
Otherwise, could he wind up having a decent game yet could he could him having a decent game help guys like Allen ROM's and David Montgomery? Obviously.
But you can't trust it is just as likely.
The complete bottom just falls out from under this guy.
So yes, no, we're not recommending Mister Frisky as extreme option this week against the Green Bay Packers by any means.
Next up here we have the Houston Texans.
We have the Tennessee Titans, and this would be a great divisional game is actually a great football game to be ableto watch here.
But fantasy wise, we got a lot to unpack.
First of all, no real injuries to talk about except for Derrick Henry.
That's that's kind of the good news because even Derrick Henry, we expect to play.
He didn't practice yesterday, but we expected not to practise yesterday.
Coming off of a hamstring injury.
They're not Derek Henry's.
Let's have a guy who's gonna have to practice a lot in order to play this week.
In fact, I would go as far to say I really don't expect him to practice this week or, Ah, practice today.
I should say not.
I expect in the practice tomorrow.
As long as he's able to get out in the field tomorrow.
I'm not too worried about it watching that game watching when the injury happened, watching him play through it, watching him play after it, it just seems to me that it was definitely bothering him.
That was very clear.
But when they took him out, it was more of a precaution to not injure it or possibly actually truly so, you know, make it severe injury where you have to actually miss weeks.
They pulled him before that point.
He seemed like he was still willing and ready to go.
So I take that as an indication that he should be fine for this week coming up.
Now, of course, the question has been and we're gonna get in the mail bag.
Some of the pre selected questions I already have are asking about Ryan.
Tannehill is your stream areas e this and we're gonna get into that.
And also, if you're watching right now on SportsCastr, you want to drop a fantasy football question there in the chat? I will put it as part off this episode and talk about it here during the mailbag segment at the end of the show.
So just keep that in mind if you're watching along on SportsCastr, too.
That's the way you can get mentioned onto the show here.
Ryan Tannehill is a stream in quarterback from you this week.
Now, on half point PPR leagues, we can go ahead.
We check about here.
I actually believe I have them off the top of my head in the top five range.
Ideo I have Ryan Tan whips.
Yeah, the number four quarterback on the week four of Ryan Tannehill.
He should be able to run.
He should be able to hit the deep ball, the age a brown.
He should be able to pretty much do what he's been able to do all season long, which is do a little bit of everything.
The Titans are playing perfectly with him right now, and a big key to his success is Derrick Henry, because a lot of their their offense is built off of play action.
So you want Derrick Henry to play of your Ryan Tannehill owner. I had.
Someone asked me that question the other day and was, you know, if Derrick Henry can't play, Will Derek Well, Ryan Tannehill, as a result, be able to throw more, insinuating that he would somehow have more value if that would actually be the case.
In my retort to that was, No, if you're gonna if you're gonna stream Ryan Tannehill this week, you want Derrick Henry the play because you need Houston to bite on the play action.
If they're going, if you're going to be able to get the ceiling that you're hoping for for Ryan Tannehill, that's how a J.
Brown gets his bombs.
That's how everyone gets their bomb.
That's how everybody's hope wide open in the middle as what opens everything up for this offense is play action that has to be there.
If you're leaning on Dion Lewis is not gonna quite be there.
So while he might have more volume, it's not gonna be great from fantasy perspective.
So you want Derrick Henry in this game.
If you're going to stream Ryan Tannehill, I do think you're going to be able to be good there.
And I do think he's somebody to come play and use Ryan Tannehill to get yourself into the championship game next week.
So we highly recommend being able to string him as far as everybody else goes A.
Brown, you gotta play him as a wide receiver.
Three. You have to.
I look coming off that game.
Yes, he's somebody who's been hit or miss all year long.
Yes, he's somebody who has had dud weeks after having huge weeks.
And as you can see, I have a J.
Brown ranked as the number 23 wide receiver on the week in half point.
PPR leaks, so I have him just outside by Why receiver to range, but definitely a very high and wide receiver, three very high end Flex play this week, and I expect great things at a. J. Brown.
It's a great matchup for some foremost against Houston Texans.
He has been coming into his own as of late.
So while yes, he has been still hit or missed, a little bit inconsistent, he has been getting better and better and better.
And over the past few weeks, there hasn't been any more.
We want to get Corey Davis involved, or where the Target's share is still kind of even between the two, making them both wildly inconsistent or so it's really just making a J.
Brown inconsistent because Cory Davis hasn't really been productive at all this year.
It hasn't really been the case.
Agent Brown has pretty much established himself now, as Ryan Tannehill's number one wide receiver over.
This is a small sample size.
But over this past month, his targets have taken a bit of a tick up.
It's been a little bit more consistent for him.
So with his ability against Houston, Texas, in a game that has potentially sneaky shoot out potential, by the way, I do believe you can go ahead, fire him up as a high and wide receiver three as a high influx play as a guy who has the potential to win you your weak.
I think you have to play a J.
Brown this week.
If you have him now in the Houston Tex.
Inside the ball, it's pretty much straight forward.
Will Fuller was alone, a participant in practice again.
But there's a limit participant in practice last week, too, and then want up ultimately not playing.
So we're going to keep on that.
Make sure you're tuning in at on Twitter at M.
D S F F show for the player news update notifications.
They also come out on belly up at belly up fantasy and at belly up football.
I also have the notifications going up on there as well, so there's multiple ways to get those updates.
Get those alerts for free and pretty much almost as soon as the news comes out to give you your edge against your opponents.
And that's what we're all about here, and that's gonna be one of the ones that we're gonna have come out.
You know, we're gonna top of right away as well.
Fuller, because it's actually a decent match against Tennessee They've actually been a little bit below average when it comes to wide receivers this season against fantasy in In fantasy football, I should say and while yes, willful or is going to be a very sketchy play.
But he does a couple of things.
Yes, yes, there's the value of Can I play well, for which I think you can't.
Will he have the high risk re injury? Of course.
But that's whenever you play well, Fuller.
You're playing him with the risk that he's going to get injured in that game, whether he's been injured or not, even if he's going into a game healthy for a few weeks, you're still playing with the risk that he's going to get injured because these that injury prone.
But as we saw a couple of weeks ago, when he first came back, we can see also what he can do.
Seven catches, 157 yards and a touchdown. I believe it was.
He can also win you the entire week so that somebody that you wanna have in your life, especially when he has a decent match up, so I do think you can play well. Fuller.
If he's able to go.
Is it a high risk? Yes, absolutely it is.
But the other aspect of willful or playing is not just insult, but he tremendously, tremendously helps to Shawn Watson.
Without a doubt, the song Watson becomes more of a high end.
If Will Fuller's in the lineup because he doesn't have to just lean on DeAndre Hopkins to hit the deep ball.
He can go to both of his guys, open everything up and make things a lot easier.
And, as you could see, I have to Shawn Watson, the number 11 quarterback on the weak, And that has a lot to do with just his inconsistent play over the past month and not knowing if we'll floor is really gonna be out to play.
If he's just going to have DeAndre Hopkins available to him, then we find ourselves in a situation where he just has a lower ceiling.
Yes, I'll have Hawkins.
Hawkins will give him in that four.
The rushing ability can always give the Shawn Watson what he needs, tohave that top five q B one performance or fanciful purposes. We know that.
That's why this on Watson's I must play.
But as far as I'm having that great ceiling, where you can go for 300 plus yards and a couple of touchdowns through the air, he needs to have all of his weapons.
Kikuchi, a Kenny Stills, have not been able to get the job done consistently enough for him.
And while against the Tennessee Titans, I think Hopkins could be enough to give him a nice floor.
You want to be able in this playoff matchup, being how this pointing is to take the top off the win you that week to come through for you when they finally have, in some senses a decent matchup, which is something they really haven't had too much over the past few weeks.
So, yes, you played the shot, Watson.
You play DeAndre Hopkins, of course, but we're talking about what's their ceiling here for them, and I think you will Florida able to reach that ceiling now, as far as the running game goes, I like Carlos Hyde.
Is Tennessee defense through good defense, but they're not a defense that scares.
You are not a defense, it just takes away guys and I like Carlos Hyde.
Ah, lot more than do Johnson this week with Without a doubt, I like him a lot more on Duke Johnson this week.
I think Carlos Hyde, somebody who could be a high end flex play for you while Duke Johnson is.
I think he has a low floor coming in this game because, frankly, he might be in a situation where he is not gonna have to be utilized.
And it is a game in which Houston they always liked.
Their passing game is always built on vertical and always look to going down the field.
But I think you're finding ourselves in a situation where it's gonna definitely be that game plan against Tennessee Titans, and they're not going to use the check down quite a bit against them.
So I don't think do.
Johnson has a particularly high ceiling.
I think it is a very low floor in this game because I questioned how many touches he's really gonna get this week.
Carlos Hi could actually have a decent week in this one, which is a big, big part of it as well.
Now Our next game up that we need to talk about is the Denver Broncos can city chiefs a lot of fancy questions in this one.
Yes, Courtland Sutton is still somebody you can go ahead and trust here.
I know, I know, I know.
Jew Locke went for what, 350 yards in a couple of touchdowns, and Courtland Sutton found himself being the odd man out.
But as you could see in half point, PPR leagues, I have Courtland son ranked as the number 15.
Why receiver on the week? I have him as a wide receiver, too.
The target share is so going to be there.
Ju lock is still going to utilize him.
He's still going to be the number one wide receiver.
Yes, Kansas City actually has not been bad against perimeter wide receivers, but because their defense has been bad in general because while you lock looks really good last week it was still a Houston Texan defense.
And while the perception of the can say cheese defense is that they're just as bad, they're actually not.
They've actually been a pretty good defense.
Yes, you can run on them when you decide to, but as far as the passing game goes, this is not a defense that has been, has been giving up a lot of passengers is not a defense that you've been able to throw on willy nilly.
So what? And what the and I know what I'm saying is a little bit confusing because talking I'm talking up Courtland Sutton right now.
The reason why I think I actually helped Courtland son is because that is a situation where those second and third guys aren't gonna be able to get as involved Corlin Sutton's goingto have to be loomed on.
It's going to have to get his volume in the targets.
Help this team to get a spark going for this offense to do something.
So I think just by default, courtroom son is goingto have to get back up to his 7 to 10 partners that he was seeing on a consistent basis and in the long as he gets that because he is the budding star that he is.
But still nobody can see that scares me off of him, and they still been able to move him around this the lining up in the slot quite a bit.
He's still going to be the number one red zone target.
No offense who has been practicing, even if he plays, is not gonna be 100%.
And he's pretty much been the second wide receiver.
The second pass catcher for that team you could play quoting Sun is a wide receiver, too, and they didn't get his volume back this week.
So don't jump off the bridge yet.
Don't don't abandon him.
You gotta play in this week in your redraft leads for your playoff matchups.
If you're able to survive last week that give it and you probably all have, you probably could have.
All right, So as far as everybody else goes filled, Lindsay Lohan are be too high in R B three for me in most leaks.
Definitely somebody that you can fire up and play definitely has a great matchup in this game.
And because of the recent usage, I actually have a number 13 I haven't hired.
I thought I did, so I haven't just outside the RV ones this week.
If you're in 12 team weeks just because of the usage between him and Royce Freeman, as of late, this has become Philip Lindsay's backfield.
And, of course, you love the matchup and Denver's number one attack against the chief is going to have to be to run the football because by all means they're going to keep this offense off the field.
Remember the last time they played them Patch? Mahomes got hurt and Matt Moore came in and let them up.
So while their defense has been pretty good against teams, they had a lot of problems handling all of the weapons that the cancer cheese hat like a lot of teams.
D'oh! Ah, lot of teams have problems being able to handle these guys.
So I expected to continue in this matchup.
I expect them to have to want to run the football, Paul so outside of court.
In sudden, I'm playing Phillip Lindsay.
I know if it is still a streaming option for me if he's good to go, but not somebody who I'm looking at.
I'm not playing anybody else fancy wives before the Denver Broncos.
But you can fire up Sutton and Lindsay with confidence on the chief side of the ball.
David Williams is expected to be back this week if he plays this week.
You can't expect him to be on our B two if he plays this week, and I don't think I have him up there right now because I don't think I have ranked him to play as of yet.
I was waiting to see the practice report, but we do expect in the practice.
Oh, no, I'm sorry.
I have Damian Williams, right? Number 17 on the week for running backs.
He practiced yesterday.
He's cleared to go the eggs.
Expectation is, you'll be good to go this week.
He's gonna have to be, in some senses, a workhorse back.
I put that out there on Twitter, not in a workhorse type level.
Back is the way I word it, because I'm not saying the workers back.
In a sense, he's going to get 20 plus touches, always gonna get all of the work, but no records back facet of the game.
He's going to be the main runner, and he's going to be the main pass catcher.
So worked workhorse type level.
But he's gonna be that type of running back where Yep.
McCoy's gonna get worked in.
You know, darling, Thompson's gonna get worked in on the passing deep.
He's not gonna get all the work to himself but he's gonna be the one back was actually involved in both phases of the gate of the past and the run, which is why I like him a lot in this game.
They need to get something going in the back field.
It's been very, very inconsistent, which is a big reason why their offense in general has been pretty inconsistent so far this season.
So look, farm up as an RV to you.
Good to go Pass from the homes will be fine in this game as well.
You already said he was able to practice the injured hand.
He should be fine. He should be good to go to.
So that means you fire up, everybody.
Travis Kelsey Obviously a plan.
Tyree kill Obviously plan.
Does it not playing Sammy walk ins this week? Yes, he went back to getting his normal target share last week, but just again, they're not throwing him the ball down the field.
They're utilizing him as a short intermediate runner who's running, drags few slants, but they're not flooring him the ball down the field even when he does go down the field right now, I don't know what the issue is.
I don't know if he's actually not 100% healthy.
What if I don't know if they're just not on the same page, but clearly clearly, Stanley Walk ins does not have that ceiling that he should have, frankly and usedto have, so you can't You can't fire him up in this one.
I can't tire kill Travis Calve and with confidence, can see cheese defense are streaming defense for me this week.
I like them quite a bit now.
I don't think I had them ranked particularly high this particular week, but they do have a ceiling that we'll talk about.
I have the number 11 defense on the week, so I do.
I do still have him as a defense, one of your in 12 team leaks, and the reason for that is because it's still Drew lock.
Still a rookie quarterback, it's the defense that has played well in the secondary is the defense that has been able to get sacks, so I expect him to be able to do those things.
Get turnovers, have a possibility for the defense of touchdown, have a possibility for a pick six in this game do lock is still not an accurate quarterback.
I know everyone seems to have this perception now that all of a sudden he's a star in the making because he had one good game against a terrible defense in Houston.
This is still a guy who was known for being inaccurate in college.
He still is inaccurate now, and I expect you can say cheese defense to be able to advantage of that fact and be able to do some damage for you here so you can fire the chief's defense as a top streaming defense for the week.
Just a quick tip it.
There's something we don't normally cover when we talk about in these shows.
The New York Giants.
So we just saw we had earlier in the show.
We had the update about Evan Ingraham actually being able to practice or possibly going to practice today.
He did not practice yesterday, and our expectation, as of right now, is still that he's not gonna be able to go this week.
Let's operate under that assumption.
So because keep in mind, even if he does practice, it doesn't mean he's going to be able to go.
He practiced all week leading up into that Monday night game, and then they rolled him out ultimately, anyway.
So even if he does pack is, it's still it's still going to have to be something we wait and see on.
So for this purpose is, we're gonna operate on the assumption he does not play.
That would mean Dairy, slated to me, is the number one guy to go to.
It's a weird mix.
If ever Ingram doesn't go, then all of a sudden the target's open up.
There should be enough targets where Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard and Dairy Slayton all C five plus targets in this game regard.
And this is regardless of whether the liar Deena Jones is the quarterback, by the way, too, because there's a great matchup and I should be able to throw the ball Darius latent because of the big playability that he has becomes my number one receiver for that team.
Overall, he's somebody who I definitely have as a wide receiver, high and wide receiver, three with upside that you can go ahead, fire up and play and be somebody who could maybe possibly even win you the week and and be one of the top sleeper guys for the week as I tried to find him here, but that that's my take on the area slate.
And right now, that's if Evan Engram does not play.
If he does play, I think it kind of flips back in a weird way, where Dairy Slaten could wind up finding himself being the odd man out again.
Where it's there, they're heading Tate and Shepherd in the middle on the outside, or hitting Evan Ingram and variously in this kind gets left out on the island, the outside, and they sort of just forget about it because there's not gonna be too much in this game that I don't think the Giants are aren't going to be able to d'oh right? They should be to do pretty much everything.
This is also a game I worry a little bit about a CE Faras receivers go because I expect stay calm, Barkley to get back going in this game, I expect himto have some success in this one, whether it be running the football are catching the ball out of the backfield, especially if Eli Manning were to play I definitely likes Tae Kwon Barkley quite a bit more in that situation, I gotta update those rankings with Darius Layton's way too low.
I have met 56. Right now. That's that's not right.
I must have him with everything.
Ingram still playing now? Yeah, even if Eli Manning plays, obviously, the checkdown becomes more a factor there.
So as a result, what you get is, say, Kwame Barkley being able to be more involved in the passing game and I expect them to have a good game against Miami is gonna be an RV one against Miami.
There's just absolutely no doubt about that in my mind.
So what are they gonna have to do with the wide receivers? That would be my only concern.
That's all I'm saying.
But if you want to play one giant wide receiver to me is Darius late in this week because the big player capability that he has, because he came out with the first game with Eli was already the most targeted wide receiver because he's been impressive over the past month.
That's has to be my guy.
But on Lee of Evidence Room does does not play If ever Ingram plays, I'm probably staying away from all the giant wide receivers.
I would play heaven incurred, by the way, because you're not gonna find a better title with a better matchup then Evan Ingram this week.
The combination of the two.
But I'm not gonna play a pass catcher because it's going to target.
She's gonna be possibly to even and two.
Hard to guess, and you're pretty much is going to be playing for boom potential while everyone's gonna have a low floor at the same time, even against the Dolphins.
So you kind of want evidence.
I'm not the play here, so guys like Gary Slaten could be somebody that you continued to rot.
And, of course, Barkley is going good as well.
As far as the Dolphins go.
Devante Parker did practice in a limited capacity yesterday, so usually that's a good indication.
When you're able to practice on a Wednesday, it's usually a good indication that you will be able to play that upcoming Sunday when you're trying to go through the concussion protocol.
I expect that to be the same case here.
I expected Monte Parker to play this Sunday as long as the case. Parker.
You fire him up.
He's a wide receiver, too, at minimum, with wide receiver, one potential where the targets he has seen.
I have miss number 14 on the week myself in half point.
PPR leaks Devante Parker is somebody you have to play, no questions asked.
I think we all know that at this point, especially against New York Giants was a great matchup.
I know some people want to be like Wolf Parker plays.
Can I stream Ryan Fitzpatrick? No, no, you can't.
And while Yes, Parker got hurt last week, and that has something to do with them, never not being able to get Ryan Fitzpatrick going while he didn't have the streaming, you know, ability that people thought he might have against the New York Jets a week ago.
He's somebody who shows you that he could go for 400 yards or you could throw for 200 yards and it doesn't really matter.
What's going on around doesn't really matter what the matchup is.
You can't trust Ryan Fitzpatrick this week.
You can't not fear playoff matchups now.
You wanna take a shot on him and DEA Bess.
If you want a pair him up with Devante Parker and do something that a torment like that that that's perfectly that's a totally different scenario.
That is a good move to make you really cheap.
As far as quarterbacks go, we'll have.
He does have the potential.
He does have the ceiling to have a big game there as long as Parker is playing so that that makes all the sense in the world.
That's one thing.
But you're talking about playoff redraft leagues right now and you're in a second round your playoffs.
There's no reason my mind you can't find a better human quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick this week that has a better at least floor with Not with Justice.
High of a ceiling, Whether it be Ryan, Tannehill, Weatherby, Jimmy Garoppolo guys of that nature, I would take all those guys over Ah, guy like Ryan Fitzpatrick this week, so just stay away.
I've been asked about that quite a bit this week, and that's why I wanted to make sure I harped and got to ah, that as well.
Next game up, we got the Buffalo Bills, we got the Pittsburgh Steelers and this game is really not gonna take too long.
The 1st 1 is the big news.
Of course, this week.
Is that James Connor? Just Ms.
Schuster will play.
They will be out there.
They practise yesterday.
They've been cleared for full contact.
They're running around like crazy.
They will be able to play now.
What does that mean? James Connor.
You can fire him up.
He is going to be an RV to this week.
No doubt about it.
I think at this point, because they've given themselves enough time for him to actually heal that shoulder injury, he's definitely less of a risk to be re injured in this game.
I know some people who are James Connor.
Owners are still very, very bitter and rightfully so.
From the last time that he went out there, played, got her early on the game and pretty much lost in the week in the Thursday night football match.
I get it. I understand it.
You gotta play James Connor.
I have his number 15 on the weak right now in half.
When peopie are leaks, you gotta fire month and plan have to have to.
So that's the one that Buffalo.
Remember, the Buffalo Bills are Tina, you can run on to use Ms Schuster.
Any of the past catchers really, of the Pittsburgh Steelers? I'm staying away from know Dion, said Johnson. No.
Schuester know James Washington Man's A Donald has a concussion.
We don't know if he's gonna go to come back this week, but no Vance McDonald.
Not that you were.
He was really in the streaming territory anyway.
You can't play any of these guys.
The bill Side the ball.
While the district stealer Stevens has been very, very good, I do think Josh Allen is somebody who has at least a floor this week.
Now I know he was disappointing last week, and I have his number 12 quarterback on the weeks.
I have him at the very bore line of the Q B ones this week, And the reason for that is because Wallace there's have been very, very good on defense.
They still haven't been lights out.
They haven't been able to just take away everybody.
If you have a decent offense, I think he's gonna run a little bit more this week than we saw him.
Do we could go like that.
The Ravens defense is just the defense.
You can't play her against right now.
They're just on another level.
The Steelers, while they're playing really good, are not on the Ravens level When it comes to defense.
I expect John Brown to be able to get open a little bit more, actually, Cole Beasley to still be a safety blanket like he has been for Josh Allen.
The biggest things.
I expect Evan Singletary to not have a huge game in this one because it's still the Steelers defense, but to be able to do enough to keep the chains moving.
So I think Josh Allen, number 12 quarterback on the week he is somebody that I think you can play this week.
It might be one of the few times in the playoffs that you can play him with any kind of.
I wouldn't say confidence, but with the idea and expectation that he should have a decent four for you in that matchup.
Same thing goes with John Brown.
John Brown to me, should be a guy that can be a wide receiver.
Three. We know it only takes one play for him.
I know that as far as targets share goes and how he's played over the past few weeks has been brutal.
And have you been able to stay in the playoffs while having John Brown on your team? You might not really want to take the chance there because you've seen what his floor can beat, but in half point PPR leagues.
I have him as the number nine.
Why receiver on the week? I expect the bounce back game and look the the outside corners of the pistols.
Dealers are what you can somewhat take advantage of.
Right now, it's staying away from me, Ken Fitzpatrick in the middle.
It's why I don't like Cole Beasley to do anything in this game.
That's why I think I'm gonna lean on John Brown as long as Josh Allen has a better game.
I expect John Brown to have a good game in this one, and I have him as the number nine wide receiver on the week heading into this match up on the on the flip side of the ball here.
Ah, there are no I'm sorry.
On the next game here, rolling along on to the next game here We got the Philadelphia Eagles, We got the Washington Redskins Bad, bad injuries with little Feagles.
Right, Bad injuries.
You got a house on Jeffrey done for the year I R.
Nelson Agler didn't practice yesterday.
Really not looking good.
The play this week.
So Greg Ward is the only wide receiver left for the Philadelphia Eagles at the moment because J.
J R K Whiteside you might not be 100% when he's out there, either.
After getting banged up in last week's game, Eagles aren't a bad, bad way, and this against Washington's consumed.
Wanna play somebody on the Eagles? Somebody's gonna have a good game outside of Zach Ertz.
I don't know who else that's going to be, because even when Dallas Goddard's case, is he a streaming tight end? Yeah, but he's a lower instrument tight and even saw it.
Last week, they had no other weapons, that it was just great Ward at a bunch of tight ends out there, and Dallas got her really three catchers, 41 yards, no touchdowns.
I'm not streaming you that now.
Maybe you don't have a better option.
Maybe you want to take that chance.
That's up to you.
I don't really recommend.
I think there's other tight ends that have more of an opportunity to be able to score or get you a decent game that you would want to stream over a guy like Dallas Carter, who's gonna be second fiddle, even in a situation where the tight ends and the running backs maybe the only real pass catchers against washing baskets.
But I think it's this is going to be a Zach Ertz.
I mean, Zach Ertz is through the roof this week, absolutely through the roof, and I'm kind of looking at it now in my head.
I think you should be the tight and one I think I have.
Travis Kelsey is a tight and one this week.
I d'oh and Zach Ertz is my number too tight end on the weak.
That could easily be football.
I could definitely see as actors being in a blind guy and a great matchup as the number one past catcher on the team.
He's definitely gonna have one hell of floor.
I think there's no doubt about that.
So you fire him up, you play him.
Carson Wentz being a streaming option.
I It's hard for me to say that you can't play Carson Wentz against against the, ah, the Redskins, because how could you not? And I have his number six quarterback on the weak because because of the match up, even without a wide receiver as long as he is, the tightest authority was all his mile Sanders.
And now the, you know, surprising performance of Boston Scott to be able to go to in the passing game.
He should have at least a safe floor, and he's gonna be asked to do a lot to win this game.
And with the way the Eagles are playing as of late, this isn't a game where you can expect them to blow them out.
This is a game where it might be competitive for 4/4 and that's the case Carson wants is going to have to shoulder load once again.
As long as he's getting that volume, he should have a say floor.
I have, um, projected for about 19 points this week, and I don't see why he's not able to live up to that.
I don't see why not at all.
Mile Sanders fire Mup you got a little bagged up last week.
I'm not worried about Boston.
Scott stealing touches from him.
Boston Scott got hot.
Milestone has got a little bit banged up.
Mile Sanders is going to be the lead running back.
Unless somehow Jordan Howard match.
You just cleared for contact, which he still has? Not yet.
By the way, I expect miles standards to be the guy that they go to in this situation, to be the main runner again, to be the main pass catcher again.
I am not worried about Boston Scott coming in, and all of a sudden, splitting Work Mile standards that's that's not going to happen is not gonna be the case.
To me, it was a one game, one time deal on Lee. That's it.
Nothing else after that.
Milo Sanders, playing with confidence, playing as an RV to who has potential because of the match up because of the uses that he might be looking at.
I'm have no no concerns there, no concerns there whatsoever.
Inside the ball, I think you have to play terrible corn.
I know it makes you nervous to say that it does make you very, very nervous to say that because we have had good matchups over the past few weeks where Terry McLaurin has not been able to take advantage of because the Redskins offense is so anemic.
But just watching Dairy sleeping.
Just watching that Giants offense.
Just watching the terrible nous that continues to be that Eagle secondary.
It's hard for me not to, and I had Terry Glory and half when peopIe are leagues ranked as the number 29 wide receiver on the weak.
So I have them as a wide receiver. Three.
And he has the upside against the Eagles, especially to score a touchdown and be able to have a much bigger week and be able to get you a wide receiver to level type of production.
The targets have come back.
He's getting most of the work.
It's a great match up.
I think you get at least play him as a flex.
If you're playing three receiver leaks, I think you can at least plan was a Flex play.
I think you know, there's a lot worse options out there.
I know I'm saying this with no confidence and I don't because it's just a cZ likely that the Redskins You Redskin thing and he gets three targets and does nothing.
Yes, that's a likely scenario as well.
But against this Eagle team, with the way they were able to connect last week against the Green Bay Packers and finally get into the end zone, Dwayne Haskins.
You know, getting one out looking a little bit better each week.
Not to think I tear McLaurin can be a wide receiver three for you this week.
Outside of that, I don't know who you can play because while dairies guys is going to be gone.
And while that means Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson are both going to be guys that have clear cut rolls in this one, Peterson obviously being the main rusher Thompson being obviously the main pass catcher is against the Eagles defense that I don't want to run against now.
Maybe if you're a PPR leagues in the flax and you're looking maybe in deeper leagues and looking for a guy with a floor, Chris Thompson could definitely be that guy for you.
Chris Thompson definitely has a high flow.
Remember last week he had seven catch of 43 art.
It's not gonna be pretty, but if you're playing in full point, we are halfway PPR league.
He's definitely gonna have a floor, because now we know dairies, guys on top of it, all the passing work.
She go to Chris Thompson and outside of terror McLaurin.
Chris Thompson should be the second pass catcher on that team, so he definitely has a floor.
In that sense, if you're staying or leagues, I'm not playing him and you're only playing him because he's the guy who can come in and get you, you know, maybe 10 10 points or so in those half point for point PPR leagues.
You're not playing him for a ceiling, so just keep that in mind as well.
But he could be a plug and play.
If you just need a guy to get you 10 to 12 points in those leaks now, AP goes.
I don't know how you're playing this game.
Yes, he's had some surprising performances against these, and defense is in the past when he's been getting all of the work.
But with the way the Eagles have gotten back, you got a little bit healthier in the front seven.
You still can't run on these guys.
They still help Cyclone Barkley in check.
For the most part, I don't love AP this week.
It just has to low before from you this week in a bad, bad matchup for me to play him in the playoffs so I would avoid that altogether as well.
To I'd fired tear Michael Oren.
And depending on your lineup, I might fire up Chris Thompson as well, keeping this thing move in here.
We got our last game that we're going to talk about in this podcast before we get to the mail bag.
Now, once again, if you're on SportsCastr watching this, drop your fantasy football question in the chat, we will shout it out, discuss it here on the show as part of the show for you guys listening on audio.
As always, I have pre selected a few questions from people have gotten to me on social media at M.
D S F F show at M D F of Show for Facebook and of course, have emailed me through the website, which is behind me right now.
The fate of w dot mdf show dot com have pre selected a few questions on the mailbag segment there as well.
Like I do every week.
Remember, even here on the mailbag segment during the show, I'm still going to answer any and all questions that come my way, so don't worry about that.
You'll get an answer for me one way or another, but our last game to talk about here in Seattle. Seahawks.
Carolina Panthers Pretty straightforward in this game.
What you're going to do at least far as the Panthers got D Day more Chris McCaffrey.
If you're waiting for me to say courage, Samuel not going, Thio Curtis.
I am not going to play a guy who is so dependent on a touchdown to even give him a fantasy floor we're not talking about.
He's a touchdown away from having a high ceiling we're talking about.
He has to have a touchdown to be fantasy relevant, and that's regardless the amount targets you seize regards of how well the offense plays.
It does not matter.
All that matters is him getting a touchdown or be fantasy relevant.
I'm not going to play that type of a guy in my playoffs, period So I'm leaving her Samuel on my bench.
I'm not a drop him, but I'm leaving them on my bench.
Even in what could be a plus match up against the Seahawks at home, leaving him there.
Do game or Chris McCaffrey? Greg Olson's banged up.
We don't know if he's going to play yet.
We're still waiting for those practice reports to come out.
Outside of that, I'm not playing anything else in the Panthers on the sea, offside the ball we own over shot Petty.
He's done for this season.
Spring a Seattle.
He's gonna have surgery, apparently, so we'll see how all that winds up in.
Turns out when it does mean is that I have Chris Carson really high this week.
In fact, if I remember correctly, I think I had him number two this week.
Overall, I d'oh! I have Chris Carson.
Number two, right behind Christian McCaffrey.
The play against, By the way, you've been there hasn't probably not been a team outside of the Cincinnati Bengals that you can run the ball with more success than against the Carolina Panthers right now.
And without Rashad Penny, Chris Carson going back to being the guy who might see 25 or 30 touches in the game, quite possibly, especially the way the office has been playing as of late, which has been more conservative.
Actually, I expect Chris Carson have a huge week, huge week, so fire him up.
R B one number two running back over on the week is where I have him at Given the matchup, given the situation now, Russell Wilson got a plan.
You have to play.
He's been a Q B one.
I know he's been a disappointment as of late, but he's a big reason.
If you're in the second round of playoffs, he's a big reason why you were there.
And this is a matchup, which they can get aggressive that can go back down the field.
I still have his number three quarterback on the week.
This is a defense that you're just not fearful of right now.
I know a lot of people are looking at the tyre lock of performance last week as another dud week and technically, from a productivity standpoint, it was another duck week.
But I actually kind of look at it with a silver lining, which is If you're still in the playoffs and you have Tyler Lockett, I'm definitely playing him this week.
I'm definitely firing him up because one, as we all know, it only takes one play with Tyler Lockett.
He had more targets last week. He needed two weeks.
Previously, he looks better running his route.
That was the big thing for me.
I went back and watched the film on that game, and to me, what I saw was a guy who looked a little bit crisper, who with a little more explosive who looked like he was further along and getting rid of his injury or being able to get over his injury, I should say, And as long as that continues to be the case, Aisha Tyler Lockett have a decent game in this one.
I have his number 30th wide receiver on the week, so I have a missile I receiver.
Three have him as a flex play, and he has a potential to give you why receiver to type production any any given week.
That's that's what we're looking at here.
So I think you play Tyler Lockett.
You could definitely play D.
Metcalf because while tyre lock It has been getting through his rough patch here, D.
Metcalfe has been as consistent as they come.
While that passing attack hasn't been what it was earlier on the season, D.
Metcalfe has been the guy who has given you a floor and, of course, always has that ability to take the top off and win you the Weeks or D.
Metcalf is a must must play for me this week, even though I haven't right number 31 just behind Tyler Lockett.
I just I like his floor a little bit more like he's stealing a little bit more, especially with the trustworthiness right now going on with that Panthers team.
You gotta fire up D K muk have, as your wife is Super three as your Flex play.
At the very least this particular week, Jacob Hollister is definitely streaming option for those of you who are asking for the tight end position.
Yes, he's definitely streaming option this week as well.
He's still seeing the targets, even though he hasn't really gotten into the end zone over the past few weeks.
The targets are still there, and you just want a tight end.
We're talking about that territory of Streaming.
Who's out there getting targets or has a chance to score? He's doing both of those. Right now.
He still has both of those potential double of those possibilities, so you can go ahead and play Jacoby Hollister.
That wraps up the show for it.
Well, as that wraps up the previews that we're going through to today, tomorrow we'll be back with the recap Thursday night.
We'll be back with the four o'clock Sunday night and the money night previews as well.
What we have now.
It's time for the mailbags segment.
Now remember, if you're on sports, cast your Washington right now. This is the time.
Go ahead, drop your question in the chat and we will get to it right now, right here and talk about it on the show.
But for now and sold.
Some people start doing that.
We have pre selected questions from people who have hit me up on social media throughout the week, and we want to go ahead and talk about those questions right now.
So Jude from Facebook, asked me and 1/2 my PPR should I play a J.
Brown or Raheem Mostert probably talking about the flex tear you would imagine.
So there's a tough question, right, because where he moster is somebody who looks like he might have taken over as the lead back.
But and here's my one caveat.
They're playing the Atlanta Falcons this week.
We still don't know the reason why.
Suddenly, Templeman found himself in the doghouse and looking like he's the third running back on the roster.
At the moment, we still haven't really got a clarification to that.
It would not surprise me for one second if against the Atlanta Falcons.
Kyle shaming and decided to start Tevin Coleman and let him get his revenge game.
Wouldn't for one second.
Kyle Shannon is known for being cute with his running backs, is known for not having really a set depth chart at the running back position from a week to week basis.
So while it's looked like where he most of the past couple of weeks, while if we never should be able to run the ball with success, it would not surprise you for one second.
All of sudden, Tevin Coleman was the lead Russia in this one to me the only 49 you can play? No, only only running back, I should say only four were running back.
You can play it because he's the only one no matter what.
No matter what the situation is that you know he's gonna probably get somewhere between nine and 12 touches.
It doesn't matter where he most is.
The main runner doesn't matter of heaven.
Coleman's demean runner, Matt Breed, is going to get somewhere between nine and 10 9 12 touches.
So he is somebody against the Atlanta Falcons team.
As long as he's getting that can be a flex player for you.
Outside of that, I don't feel like I can trust her.
He moster, and I don't feel like I can trust him, Coleman.
So I'm not gonna play either one of them.
Because against the Falcons, especially, just would not surprise.
All of a sudden they flip flop on the depth chart from what they've been the past couple of weeks.
So that's why a long way of saying one.
I wantto Warren, MD.
Nation because we are going in that preview tomorrow.
We'll talk about that more tomorrow, but I want a warm and warn Indian Nation now to not play Raheem Mostert to not trust in this week.
Also a J. Brown.
We talked about him.
He's a must play for me this week against Houston.
Texans with the way he's been playing as of late, with the target share that he has been seeing, You have to fire up a J.
So Jude A Z Brown is your guy in the Flex for your playoff matchup.
Ernest from Twitter.
He asked me full point PPR levy on Belle or DeAndre Washington.
So obviously, this affects.
No, I I was You have to make a decision now, and it's hard to make that decision now because you're in a situation where Josh Jacobs while he has been cleared to practice and he did come back to practice yesterday, there still have been a big our article and big allowed talk about how he is somebody who is not guaranteed to still play this week.
Their days there were talking about that today.
Even though he came back to practice, he's still no guarantee to be able to play, So the question is, are you I'm gonna take I'm gonna take this question as you're not Josh Jacobs owner, because I feel like you would be asked me Leave Young Belt or Josh Ik of Slash DeAndre Washington The fact you're asking me Levy on Belle and DeAndre or Deandra.
Washington tells me that you picked up Washington when Jacobs got hurt last week.
But you're not actually Jacob's owner.
So now you have to sit in a situation.
Where do you roll the dice that Jacobs doesn't play? So you can play Washington in the game? Or do you play Lady on Belle tonight? Here's what I'll say.
I'm gonna roll the dice in.
The playoff matchups usually wouldn't do this, but because I have zero confidence in the productivity that you could possibly see Anna leave Young Bell and that you're full point PPR league.
So you're the one league where he might have a floor just because of the reception's he might see coming on the back field.
Because Sam Darl might not have time to throw anybody else.
So you're the one lead where I might even consider plainly of yon belt because I still have zero confidence in Levy on Belle this week, I would roll the dice and see if maybe Josh does not play or see if I can get another R B two options somewhere on the waiver wire or somewhere else on my bench.
If Jacobs does wind up playing, but I would honestly roll the dice and hope that Jacobs does not play to get to play the Andrzej Washington this week rather than have to play lave Yon Bell against the Baltimore Ravens tonight.
He has no ceiling is maybe a floor and full point.
So that would be my response that I would actually roll the dice there. Ernest.
Not last question I selected from the social media questions is Kurt from email? He asked me, Ryan Tannehill or Kirk Cousins this week.
I think we spent a lot of time this episode already talking about the fact that we love Ryan Tannehill quite a bit.
Kirk Cousins going up against the Chargers defense, who's actually pretty healthy right now and playing pretty well with Darwin.
James back and Hayward's doing really well, and even if Adam dealing comes back in that game, cause is still going to have a low floor could you still have a good game? Yet? He still could have a good game against the charge. Especially Adam Dealings.
Back in the mix because you have Dalvin Cook.
Who? Who? He has a good matchup because charge aren't very good against the run.
So as long as we're able to keep the offense going, they have play action available.
It could negate the healthiness D D talents of that secondary of the Chargers to some degree.
But given the match up here giving away Ryan Tannehill has been playing.
I just see no reason why you don't go ahead and play table.
He has the same floor as a Kirk cousins with a much higher ceiling fire.
Ryan Tannehill as your quarterback for this week that wraps up the show for today.
I hope you guys all enjoyed it.
