We're almost there you go. Welcome.
In late German. We are.
We're here tonight with you, with the breakdown sports dot com coming at you talk a little college football man. J d.
What's going on? Not much, man.
Waiting on and news keeps train every day.
Come for You guys realize? Yes.
I didn't say a thing.
Yeah, Yeah, I got trying to root any water at this point because with all schedule changes and everything that's coming now, we don't know if everything's finalized.
We don't know you're really out was going.
It's worth taking it day by day.
But what we're gonna do is we're gonna prepare as if season is kicking off on time with everybody a full go.
So we're gonna talk from tight ends today.
They won't come at you with some mail back questions from some of our listeners out there.
So first we will start off again.
This is from a best ball drafted.
I was a part of with several industry.
You know, experts out there from the CFF sat my bank bridge to CFF in a John Lobb justifies the all those kind of guys.
So a lot of sharp guys in here that really do their homework.
So it was a pleasure to be a part of it for one from from my standpoint.
But now we're gonna talk about the tatted.
We're going to talk about quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers.
We're gonna hit on some tight ends and some of the guys that we like, especially some sometime in strategy.
I know I was asked several questions from our mailbag, but I didn't added the sheet because we were talking about tight ends is you know, When do you draft it out in? When do you prefer the draft it out in me? I'm the guy that's going to get one of those top three or four tight ends, and I'm going to spend up to give him I'm perfect.
Found that when it comes to best ball strategy, I prefer to wait a little bit just because you don't have the waiver wire capability.
You know your stuff with a team that you draft.
So when it when it comes toe regular redraft leagues, I'm I'm going after who I think is my number one pat end, and I'm gonna take him wherever I think I had to take.
You know, if I think I got to take him in the fifth and sixth around, I'm doing that.
You get such huge turnover in the in the college that fancy football that if you miss on 1/4 or fifth round pit, So what? You go to the waiver wire, you got 1000 players to choose from, even if it's just great streaming matchups Week to week eso So Jesse R J d with just on campus campus Pa Virgin That's got me Got me saying it wrong with JB What's your strategy when it comes to Italians that what's your thought process? I'll win your drafts and, um, and how you value them.
Um, I usually don't quite spend up to get him.
Um, it kind of depends on the year, Uh, if you have so this year I think they're two guys I like.
I pay up to get him.
Um, but usually I try try to catch somebody in the middle here.
So, yes, there's usually some confusion somewhere between lank ranking three toe like a If I have a guy who I think is pretty close to like the third or fourth best guy, but he's ranked by most people as number eight.
I'll usually try to get that guy.
Could get him really specially in like, well, femur.
I generally try to hit value, but it depends.
Like if if a fish lips until the eighth around and I can get a number one number two tight end, I just kind of depends how they fall to me.
Yes, so So That that brings up a good point, is, is there is there for sure, especially in tight ends when it comes toe college.
There's so many teams, there's not a lot of good pass catching patents you don't have.
You don't have a you don't have 10 that you got their draft and feel super confident.
And all 10 of this year you got about seven.
Get seven, right? Depending on depending on how you how you feel about it.
There's there's a clear top three for May on and I don't care what were you Rank him in 12 or three.
They're there. All right there from.
And I'm perfectly fine with any.
Any one of the three And so I'll name off.
Those three here will kind of discuss that, JD So So column grandson from s.
And you was the first tight end off the board.
Uh, do you have that draft sheet in front of you? Um, yeah, I got it right here.
So? So, Colin Grants, who went in the seventh round? Pick number four.
Next up was Kyle Pits in Florida.
He also went in the seventh round and then in the eighth round Brand keys D I hope I'm saying that name, right? Yeah.
I'm pretty bad about that.
I know of in the ballpark.
People say where? I think I'm pretty close.
So grandson pits and keep the those air from TV from Utah.
Those were pretty much the consensus Top three, uh, me when I'm going into a draft, especially redraft for a season.
Lonely? I'm getting with those three guys if when the 1st 1 goes off the board, if it's not me picking him at my next pick is gonna be one of those one of those other two tatty and me.
Personally, I don't care which one of those three that I get.
I'm pretty happy with all three of them.
Grandson finished the season super, super strong last year.
They lose James Rrochet to the NFL.
They've got ready Robison out there.
They never see Ross another side.
You know, granted, it's gonna I don't think you can really double team, you know, tat in a lot.
But they've got a really good quarterback in Chambers.
Ship Grandson is a really, really big kind of explosive player after the catch.
Had some really monster games defensive season out.
He is a He's a wide receiver.
He is just a big water saver.
That's that's classified as Italian.
Uh, he doesn't play a lot of, you know, down blocking tight in, You know, he's like the most time in the slot.
You know, big time, big time guy like that, you know? And then and then keep the what? What's what's best about him is he actually has had several goal on attempts, flies to your Russian attempts around the Golan and especially losing Zack Mollison.
Not having a clear number one belt out for Utah, Maybe.
Maybe that turns into three or four rushing touchdowns this year s o those three guys.
What's your thoughts on the mjd and then we'll move on.
So, uh, it is pretty unique about these guys.
Is they have a shot to be the number one receiver on their team? The number one guy? Um, I definitely like Grantham, uh, at the top just because of the passenger volume.
And like he said, he has that report with New Shell.
I've seen what he could do in the end zone and reds up.
Uh, and I like his blow up spots.
I mean, I think even if he doesn't have, you know, he has the opportunity.
He has games where his three touchdowns.
You don't see that very often for a technical.
And then even if he's not blowing up, I think they throw the ball so much, he's still not gonna put up a video to get you like point out. It's worse.
So I like him. Number one.
I would be happy with pits.
So I'm a little bit different than you and that I think grandson and pits are my number one and two pretty clear.
And then after that I'd probably wait if I didn't get one uh, he's in a unique situation Where, uh, where they, uh, they're losing their wider fevers there.
And he's, like, for sure Has the report with Kyle? Yeah, these he should be going this season as the number one guy.
He should be The 1st 1st 1st got started on that team this year.
Trask trash look is away a lot last year.
Yeah, and I mean it kind of anecdotal evidence, but so I was a tight end in high school, and I went through a number of different quarterbacks in like you.
You'll notice this with tight ends like some quarterbacks are used to hitting their tight end and they're used to going to you.
You'll put of a huge game.
They look to you, you know you're part of the offense.
It is some quarterbacks who just that's not what they're used to.
Maybe that's not what they had in high school.
Another in a college, but they don't really understand it.
Kyle Traffic is totally a tight end guy like love pit, yet is the best throws it up.
It is all about it.
I'm 100% comfortable with that, so I like those guys wanted to keep me.
He's up there definitely for me.
I would probably if I don't get it dancing.
And you know for sure that especially around I might wait, but he's a solid option. He's not.
He's not a huge drop off from those guys for sure.
Yeah, And again, when it comes to redraft, please, you're allowed to miss on one of these three guys.
If one of these three guys, if you spend up and you spend 1/7 round pick on him and they crap on Kuhlmann, just go.
The weather wire played matchups.
But if you spend 1/7 round pick on and they hit like like you expect they're going to, then you've got a weekend week out advantage every single week against your opponent because better waiting to the 14th round to take their pad.
And they're just they're playing tight and roulette on on the waiver wire every single week.
So if you hit, it's it's a major major upgrade for a team, and if you miss, it doesn't hurt that bad.
I mean, because more than likely, the guy who's gonna pick in the seven friendly you have cut the hell anyway and you have moved on from, so All right, so next up the next couple that we got off the board, we got Charlie Koller from Iowa State, Brevin Jordan from Miami, Quentin Morris from a bowling green.
Uh, and these three bringing in Jordan is definitely my My favorite color is getting my safe floor.
I've got a pretty good report with party out there, and I was state.
But Previn Jordan is probably outside of the air King the best offensive player on the field for mine.
Uh, you know, a lot of people are talking, you know, Todd and one in the draft this upcoming year and he come out of high school has, you know, number one tight end really had a pretty decent freshman season outside of really, really ****ty quarterback play for Miami.
And that's really been what's held him back the entire time, has been in Miami for the past two years, is really bad quarterback play.
So you would think that bringing in the air Akeem and then bringing in Red Lashley as an offensive coordinator should be able to stabilize that offense.
And and you know, brother Jordan should be the d Go to target on that on that team all season long.
So if I if I'm going to miss one of those top three guys, I am 100% and making sure that I'm getting bread in Jordan as quickly as possible and I'm not going to sit around and wait.
So bread in Jordan he ended up going in the semifinal.
He went a lot later.
Yeah, he laughed.
Get my second, let's see.
So keep the win.
In the end of the eighth round, Charlie Koller was the 10th round pick for top of the 10th. Rev.
In Jordan is the middle of the tent.
So if I'm missing on one of those three guys in the seventh round and I know breath in Jordan is gonna go around about the 10th 11th round, I'm making sure that in the eighth and ninth around that I'm making that a priority to get him just so I don't miss that now, outside of Brendan Jordan, pretty much the rest of them there I flipping a coin If I don't get one of those one of those top three and for whatever reason, if I get snapped on John Jordan coming around and then I'm like you, I'm gonna wait in.
I'm gonna I'm gonna throw it.
Are you know what? My eyes closed.
If I miss something, I'm working the waiver wire dressed year.
So of those three color Jordan and Morris who wanted one of some of the things that you like in this life.
So I actually with Colder and Jordan, I kind of put these guys in my Keesee category.
Um, it seems like most people are higher on Kiki, but I don't think cooler and breath and are much of a drop off at all.
I wouldn't be upset with getting these guys.
I think that's the clear top five.
I do like Morris, but, um, I put him lower.
Uh, definitely lower than these guys.
I mean, these are the clear top five.
You mentioned he has a new offensive coordinator.
Lastly, um, and he was with s and view when granting just blew up last year, he had over 700 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Uh, if you ever want to Private Jordan, you get 700 yards and 19 touchdowns out of a pad in in college.
Fancy football, man, you're doing backflips.
You are tickled to death with getting that is a week in, week out. Starter.
You just you You said it.
You don't have to worry about anymore after that.
I mean, I like the upside there because do you think Jordan play football? I mean, the guy super athlete, and he just he's just been **** on by the headquarter bags is intact.
College career? Yeah, and so there's a lot of question marks with them, So I understand it.
If you'd rather take Kiki true or colder.
I'm not gonna hate that.
But I just think he has upside with what? We've seen the supply in history and with a new quarterback, like without athleticism, like I wouldn't It wouldn't be crazy if he finishes the time.
That one would be a little more practice.
There's a lot of guys outside of those top three that I think that have the potential of finish that had one.
But Jordan is definitely definitely one of those guys.
Uh, the the rest of guys we're gonna talk about that.
I don't think they're gonna finish.
You know, maybe they're a top team title, and maybe they're a top seven.
Tied him. But there's no nothing.
I got another for one tight end, right? You're not gonna dominate all year.
Somebody may pop up mid season, but but one of the guys that are being drafted right now, there's very few guys, and I'm I would stop that list of four.
Stop it with Brevin Jordan, Keesee pits and grandson for sure.
Yeah, I feel that, uh, just a last thing I want to say where I kind of mentioned it, uh, at the beginning.
But cooler and Jordan also have a case for being, you know, pretty much the number one guy in the offense may not finish with number one party.
It's but, I mean, they're like the leading returners.
Miami was Is there talk Teoh be targets? Ah, and I was the, uh, nobody's quite sure what their wide receiver corps is gonna look like those They haven't proven quarterback room.
So, like, there's a lot like here, Like you said, it's harder to find it.
And you think about folks when you're looking at Italians, All these guys sm You uh, it's a high volume, a lot of plays, an offense for cow pits.
It's at Florida.
You're looking at the number one target on a team that typically play split out and not on the line of scrimmage.
Keith, the Utah not a lot explosive place on from the wide receivers will possibly get Golan touches.
So you're seeing high volume have floor kind of situations.
Brandon Jordan, the number one target.
Their color of the number one target there.
Rather, he may not even leading the team in response perceptions already yardage.
But when it comes to the tat ends, you don't need somebody to lead their team in receiving yards.
Toe. Have a productive fantasy Italian.
You need somebody that won't get them 67 targets a game.
Catch five or six passes.
Hopefully, you know, for 60 70 hours if you get a touchdown break.
Then you made a major you couldn't lick at town and then you're gonna catch those guys Everyone saw.
That's going to rip off of a 50 yarder and you're gonna get six catches for 130 yards and a touchdown, and that's that.
That's That's an explosive day for a tad.
And really for anybody.
Receiver, too, but especially for the tight end position.
So you whenever you're looking at your dad and you're trying to do your research form, go find you a website that I'll show you targets.
Find somewhere that I'll show you a team distributes the football.
If a team never throws to the tight end, I don't care how good the tight end is.
If he's not gonna get two or three targets a game, then it's useless, you know, look somewhere else, but guys like grants and pits.
Kohler, Brevin Jordan Keesey.
Those guys are gonna be targeted early and often, so make sure that you're looking that kind of stuff for you. Draft.
All right, so next up, exactly next up, we've got a pat fry removed from Penn State.
Your gains from Marshall Josh Petersen from UL Monroe.
If I'm not mistaken, he may still be in the transfer portal if he's not back with the teeth, Uh, and then Matt Bush from big while use all these guys right here, this is can aware.
I'm stopping, looking at tight end if if I want to wait if I want to play the game and I'm gonna wait on tight end after these 10 guys go, I'm just I'm throwing my hands up and I'm going totally pumped the position.
I'll pick some random guy up at the end of the drafts, hoping that I can strike gold.
Hit a home run with, uh, But more than likely, I'm looking at the way you are pretty **** hard for Week one to see which Todd and blows up.
So of these guys, I would say Pat Fry removed.
It's probably the most consistent Penn State's been talking in there.
They're tight ends pretty early and often for several several years now, through different through different offensive coordinators through different schemes, that kind of stuff.
So they're they're always looking at their that their tightening, exactly games had some really, really productive games early in the season last year and then kind of fell off toward begin.
Uh, Josh Petersen, you earthy, ends up back at you, Monroe.
They lost a lot.
They lost their starting quarterback.
That got some turn over there.
So you know he's an absolute of guy.
You'd usually good for 545 catches a game, which is what you're looking for.
A living that 567 target range, Not super explosive.
It's not gonna have your 100 yard game, but it's gonna give you a nice, safe floor.
And then Matt Bushmen and BYU BYU testing really good tidings over the years.
Uh, none of them were excellent elite kind of players, but they're all pretty good where he didn't have to search on the Web, where every week for a player.
So of those four guys.
What's your thoughts on invading? Yeah, these guys were pretty close.
Like you said, I'll probably have it.
Wouldn't mind getting either of these guys at a good price.
Uh, I did want to mention Bush, man.
Um, he does BYU, another team that loses a lot of, ah, receiving production.
So he's kind of their most proven guy.
They lost their top three wide receivers.
Um, and we don't know their schedules gonna look like, but I'm actually kind of ah, exact Wolfram fan.
I think they had a kind of a difficult, difficult schedule last year.
Beat implies, so I could see Bushman.
That's putting up a bigger year this year.
Um, other guy, I want to mention that it like, is, uh, Xavier games for Marshall.
I think I'll probably own some of him.
They throw in a tight end, but time they actually have a had to productive tight end.
Last year, I forget with the other guy's name.
What you were saying that it was It seemed like it was gains really heavy at the front of the season.
And then the other fella toward the back used.
Yeah, And when you see two tight ends kind of the relevant someone and CFS even though they didn't have monster years, I mean, that's kind of unusual, Uh, so they targeted hadn't a lot and the other guy left.
So he's the clear time and one now.
He was kind of like a tight into last year.
Uh, he made the switch from quarterback to tight ends and he still had a good year.
Uh, I think he's only gonna keep improving.
The only gonna keep any more targets.
I think he's gonna get a lot of, um Also, there's is a very slight chance, but I feel like if he's close to the other guys.
You might as well take a shot, but they have their quarterback transfer out of the green and there's some chatter.
Uh, it's a fruity Something about the crew did have the quarterback so even a lot like cornerback and be tied. Ineligible.
The last time we had a cheat code like that was was at Marshall with David.
I think what was his name was named David Johnson.
Uh, who's out now is his name.
He was with a running back, so they moved him from tied into running back.
And he was like a bona fide 1600 yard running back, 10 to 12 touchdowns.
But he went out and eligibility.
He was the greatest cheat code that I am verbally beat by in a championship.
This give just freaking blew up on me.
But yeah, it's definitely something that you now some one of the one of the little little things that I do every year week, one week to especially a tatted position.
Because I missed out on guys like to kid from Marshall.
Devon, David Johnson, I think is what his name Waas.
I'm gonna look that up in a minute But I get the guys like Jalen sans the guys that were were tight ends.
But we're also next those type of guys.
One of the first things I do after a week one has been played.
I got in my tight end section on fan tracks and I sought by Russian yards and I sort by Russian toast downs.
And I see if there's any Italians actually touching the ball in a burning back capacity.
That's one of the first things that do every single year, trying to find that little, a little niche, a little loophole because, especially in my leagues, if you do that, if you do the work you put in the work and you grab about that, I'm not taking his eligible eligibility from.
There are some leads to where if a player moves positions midseason, they'll change the players position inside of the league to make it fair.
I'm not doing that in my leagues personally, like the year Ron Tannic.
It went from my receiver, the quarterback that was a quarterback for UNLV that went from modern statement, a quarterback If Heyman, if you threw the one that pulled the trigger and fixing more good on you.
You know, I'm happy for you, so definitely check that stuff out.
You guys, after week, one runs, go to your town ends.
And if you're not doing that, you really should start and go check and taking for, you know, of course, catches receiving yards, touchdowns.
That's all this Santa stuff.
Make sure soared by Russian attempts, and Russian elders could say they only got 30 yards Russian.
All right, that's nothing.
You want to be excited about who they plug.
If you're you got some a little, uh, a little of a group of five school playing Alabama, and you got tied in with 30 Russian.
That's something I want to put.
At least I'm a bench.
I always hold him down there for a reader to to see what happens once you get into conference blood.
So So keep that in mind and other any other tight end.
Do you want to hit on Jamie? Yeah, well, I brought that up.
It reminded me of another guy who's, uh, somewhere near the top 10.
He's outside the top 10 but not before off.
And that's James Mitchell for Virginia Tech.
Um, Virginia Tech uses their tight ends as rushers.
Um, and this guy was there, Back up.
They had, uh, what's his name? We just got drafted by the Patriots.
Way too high, but, um, back.
Yeah, those terrible graphic doesn't mean anyone that's seen an angel in mental better than Dalton King.
I kind of for the Hopis.
My brother goes there, so I root for, um, and James Mitchell was really good.
But who is this guy? You make sure you have a place.
He had five tight end, five touchdowns with a backup tight end, Uh, and they give him the ball on Russia's, so he's going to get a few Russian customs.
I don't know if it's gonna be five.
I'm gonna be, too.
But anything like that tight end that gives him value.
So, uh, if you're looking for something weird like that, James mentioned you guys here his last.
Um, I didn't want to hit on.
Ah, one guy, Joshua Lyman from Western Kentucky.
Uh, I have seen the light from Western Kentucky guys here, but, uh, he had Ah, he had a good year last year of your fantasy relevant, but he wasn't crazy.
He had 4 30 yards, five touchdowns.
I was as a true freshman, uh, new this year.
A lot of vacated targets with a couple guys going pro lucky.
Lucky Jackson thing that that problem he was he was up over 100 targets for the years.
A lot of targets up for grabs up there, targets for grab the guys huge, 65 to 35.
And as a freshman, he put up a good that you don't think that it's almost a big feather.
Good and college fantasy relevant.
That's freshman, and it really doesn't happen.
So any time I see a guy go like that, I mean, he's only going to get better.
In my opinion, on the steam likes to throw down.
So he's gonna get targets like Mitchell and Simon outside the top 10.
All right, well, that does it for our kind of conversations.
So Javy grab our Google dot sheet up and let's asking questions and let's let's get these these folks managers.
All right, let's see what we got here.
All right, First off from our boy right here, he says, who are the biggest boom or bust players, um, from last season or for this upcoming season for fantasy boom or bust players.
And he had me meet the Hoco.
Um, from Stanford is the guy he offered up with 7 20 after boom or bust players were over.
Buster kind of looking through our draft order right here.
Well, I mean, last year, the air keen really busted on.
A lot of folks just opt in our, you know, the consensus number one overall pick.
They just rip the rug out from everybody that drafted a four games into, you know, decided Teoh to take off for the rest of season and then saying he wasn't going to transfer, but ended up transferring.
Also, that kind of saw the writing on the wall of another quarterback that really hurt people and saying people season all in the same season.
There was a whole natives from easy.
You, you know, he started.
It was, you know, pretty much a consensus.
Top five, top 10 quarterback and drafts.
I investigate pretty heavily and, uh, it hurt it hurt.
Leaving are lined up for it for the 1st 6 weeks of the season.
But then, you know, November rolls around and he absolutely kills it for the rest of the year.
So no, the two guys that come just talk my head, I think for this upcoming season, one of the boomer bus guys we're going to see is Jamie Newman on.
I think if he had one too many bus, we're gonna see JT Daniels step into those games.
So I do have a share of Jamie Newman in a fantasy league, and I'm not I'm not super confident in it.
You know, you've got a big time five star quarterback sitting right behind you with immediate eligibility.
You know, if he comes in and struggles the first couple weeks, I don't know how much of a leash he's going to get, uh, with having a you know, number one overall prospect that your quarterback sitting right behind it, a couple of the guys that you're going to see boom or bust gangs from our cleansing players just because they're gonna kick the **** out of people so bad that, you know, if you if you invested in the t ends, the, uh, well, it was Justin Ross.
But any of the in God is, uh, our mom, Martha Rodgers, who some other wide receivers form Frank lad from frank lattes.
And those kind of guys, you're gonna get games to, where they're gonna they're gonna blow up for you.
They're going to get 67 catches for 152 or three touchdowns because they're gonna get behind people.
They don't play it.
Super tough schedule.
But then you're gonna get games.
Or you might get to catches for 30 yards because they're up 49.
Nothing midway through the second quarter, and they're just kicking the hell out of people.
So those are those are the guys that really to me are gonna boom and bust the hardest is because just gang script e It could be any. You neither.
Clinton Guys, if NTN rips off a couple big 40 50 yard runs and they get a big fat lead on somebody were already they're probably not gonna push the ball down the field role.
Oh, definitely Clinton players For me and some other guys that that came to mind is Kim Amman, and that's just drops out has nothing that's got nothing to with these guys.
But Kill Amon is a type of guy that if he doesn't get you a handful rushing yards and a couple touchdowns, you're probably gonna be pretty upset with The fact is he's a 220 passing hours into cuts down top quarterback.
Uh, he may have a big game here and there, but even the game against else you A couple years ago when they home 75 points on it, he was still pretty mediocre from advances standpoint.
And that was in seven overtime. Top game.
So So those are the guys that come right to the top of my head? What about you creating? Uh, yeah, I want to hit on hoco cause he was kind of Ah, you get a lot of buzz around him last year.
Um, because he's a big play guy on Stanford.
Have some, uh, wasn't a Marceca Whiteside there, But he was the second coming of our Sehgal. Whiteside.
Honestly, he pretty much disappointed He had some games where he was good, but human had 24 captures all year, and he didn't eclipse 100 yards in a single game, and then he there any game all year.
That's done for what I said. Good.
So, I mean, he's good, but you're you're banging on him, getting, you know, two or £3 that you're playing.
Um, and they have some good receivers.
Actually, I actually think there have, like, one of the best.
Why does he records in the Pac 12? So I think they have four relevant wide receivers, and, you know, he's not guaranteed to get targets, but, uh, yeah, guys like that, you see on go for three touchdowns in one game and you're watching the game, right? Oh, my God.
I love this guy.
I'm gonna throw him in all my lineup.
These guys are tricky.
So that's the reason you want to keep out next week? Yeah.
You know, he's gonna craft on most weeks, but that's okay.
It's like he's your guy.
You play him on the right matchups, but that's something to keep in mind.
You want to play him in the right matchups And some guys we don't know what the right match up is there, just out of nowhere.
So, uh, you guys I have written down here.
I'll stay in the Pac 12.
I mentioned this in our running back bond, but CJ Byrd L oh, me had after those layoffs top here. Jeez.
Yeah, I crunched some numbers after we talked last time.
Uh, so he had two super big game, uh, palm up, but one was over 40 and one was over 50 fantasy points and have a doctor like you game.
Yeah, that you saw the news.
He thought he was the best running back in the world.
But if you took away those games, he averaged 8.
2 fantasy points per game all year.
Yeah, regardless of where he finishes that in the ranks.
Last year, he hurt you pretty bad because you wouldn't with starring and he just be so bad.
And they didn't give you that one really big game to take. Oh, yeah.
Now we've got some consistency flowing.
You start in the next week, gives you three points.
So see, the Riverdale is probably We could probably end of discussion right there.
And C J Burnell would would be good enough because that was one of the biggest boomer bus stop Omar Cooper, top guys and just rip your heart out week to week and finishes as a top 15.
Top 20 running neck attended this season.
Yeah, it's, uh I actually realized one of those big games that I counted in there.
That was against Utah in the Pac 12 championship.
And I don't even think that was a fantasy week because he cracked.
But I want to get now 202 100 plus yards in that game.
Yeah, so he had He was.
So you take that away.
He was indulging mortgages for nine games.
So not somebody, uh, I I would love for that's what It kind of gets different cause I play a little BFFs daily fantasy.
Uh, um the boomer bus guys or guys, we want to look out because they know you have t. J.
When he's getting 50 points.
You might, you know, take a couple $100 home if you're playing BFF.
You guys, you guys keep in mind and he's loan didn't stop because people know that he's a book about a guy.
A lot of people will stay away from those guys because they don't want that bus game.
But if you're a smart defense player, you're you know you're diversifying your lineups.
Those are the type of guys that you really want special those big tournaments.
You know, if you're playing a cash game, you're playing a 50 50.
Something like that.
I'm not messing with God for Dale, but I'm in a tournament with 25,000 people and those are the guys who want to take because they're gonna be cheaper.
And you have the ability to have the number one running back on the week before next to him in your lineup.
So that's that's That's smart right there.
Yeah, uh, real quick.
If you guys don't mention dusting.
He had quite a few dead.
They were mostly against good competition this year on.
He's probably paying a Mac a Mac schedule only this year.
So he had two games with over 40 fancy points, and I think it was three above 30 so he can really boom.
I think he'll do it more often than not.
Yeah, he's probably the players that benefited the most from a fantasy perspective for all these conference games, getting all these non con games getting locked up because he had.
He hasn't we talked about in our quarterback, so he's gotta get a brutal schedule.
Now Obama or no Penn State, Kentucky and Alabama in three of the 1st 4 weeks.
Uh, now that he doesn't have those games, he's going just all Mac.
He shot up quite a bit in my quarterback rankings, uh, to wear because he's a big time run.
He's not gonna blow you away with this with his passing, but he's a guy that could run for 100 yards and two touchdowns every single week.
So when it comes to boom players, he's definitely got that, I would think will bloom a lot more than your bust this year.
Because of the schedule, I have to agree the schedule changes everything and still have enough time to fully digest Going forward, we'll have an entire episode dedicated to who benefits the most who get who got hurt the most by changing schedules.
Yeah, um, real quick for being developed.
Next question to other guys, especially for looking at my BFF.
One guys came in a Cameron lost for Yukon, the wide receiver Uh actually played this guy twice in DFS, and they only have, like, two good games all year.
I just got kind of lucky because he's the only target on Yukon, and, uh, they play some really bad defense is playing against new math and easy, you two terrible defense's.
And I'm, like, get a ton of targets.
He planned a terrible defense.
It's gonna be a high scoring game.
And he blew up both times.
So that's another guy that's gonna be super cheap.
And he could throw him a drone.
Lineups for legal on, uh, the last guy wanted metric film for you Feel a big time, but we're bus guy for sure.
Oh, man, you see some of the runs that guy has and I'm like, this guy's going to be an NFL stud.
I might you know, Raiders got to draft him.
I'm looking for this guy, and then you just hear, actually, yeah.
So he's easy to trick you.
You may be getting a bigger workload this year. Civility.
We got Hefei Jordan Whitney here with the uncer*****y of the season on everything going on with the virus, their particular way.
You approach this season versus prior seasons, for example, teams or conferences you were either avoiding and or targeting.
So so before these conference games, the non com game started dropping off like flies.
I wasn't changing anything.
I was preparing as if it was just another another season, and I was I was keeping a status quote.
Now that the conferences are dropping the nonconference games, guys like Dustin Crumb.
I'm definitely looking at him a lot harder now.
Uh, you know the Mississippi State players.
I'm looking at them even less now.
The Georgia players.
I'm looking at them even less now because now, instead of getting to play a bunch of cupcakes for the 1st 2 or three weeks and really blowing up to start the season and get you off to a hot start now they're playing conference games against teams like you know, Alabama against teams like L issue in Florida and Georgia.
All these teams were playing each other now, which, which is what sucks from a fantasy standpoint.
You're going up against some of the best defensive players in the country.
You're going up against future first round picks set around picks.
So before this before, two weeks ago, when all this new started breaking, I was just just like normal.
I was preparing, as if it was gonna be just 100% full go.
And now that it's not, you definitely have toe.
Have to change yourself thought process a bit to the point where I have the two home leagues that I run myself were probably canceling fancy football for for ourselves.
I'll probably jump in some some Twitter leagues and that kind of stuff.
But from a commissioner standpoint that I have to run the leaks with all the covert stuff and how NCWO doesn't have to report injuries and all that kind of stuff, I just It's gonna be a **** show from start to finish, and I hope it's not.
But yeah, for me and my own personal leagues were were just We're canceling the season.
We're going to just pick it back up in 2021 hope that it's not too much of a turnover.
So yeah, it's it's definitely it's just the past couple weeks has definitely changed.
I'm looking at how to rank players, UH, guys like K. J. Costello.
I wasn't super Allingham yet.
I wasn't super on him at all, really.
And they've definitely dropped down a few picks, just just the simple fact that now they don't get those cupcakes.
They don't get that middle of the season in Division two school that they get to smoke by 50 points and put up 500 yards and four touchdowns.
I don't get that anymore.
Now you said that they get to play somebody like a known Auburn or Kentucky or a Tennessee to where they wouldn't have played him before.
So what's your thoughts? Yeah, a.
So many things you could say, because everything changes and there's a 1,000,000 different, a 1,000,000 different things that are involved in a season.
And they're all different this year.
Uh, basically, just there's a lot less schedule ****ysis like severely.
Now that we have, we kind of have schedules.
We can do some of that and you need to do that if you're gonna play fantasy or be really involved, are your baton.
Whatever you're doing, you really need to know the schedule.
Weigh less of that.
Usually you have it down to a T like you can list off dust and crumbs nonconference opponents, because that's something you need to know.
It's critical factor right now.
It is, Honestly, it's a little less precise.
You can't really have to a t projections because you don't even know what the game they're gonna be getting.
What it's gonna look like it or not gonna be a true road game.
It's less precise.
It's just getting to know a little bit more about, you know, the players for fantasy.
And do I trust this guy? Is the consistent things like that is gonna have targets? Um, as far as, like, teams and what teams I'm looking at pardoning.
I've actually I started ah off the season article article.
Siri's like teams that I would not trust because they have some factors.
I kind of stop doing that for a few weeks because we don't know if these now that there's a little bit of clarity, Um, basically some factors I'm looking at identify team that I don't trust.
If they have a new head coach, they have offensive scheme changes like a new offensive coordinator, something drastic, like with your detective new quarterbacks trust quarterbacks.
Some people don't think quarterback matters depending on the system.
My Oklahoma, you can pretty much throw men, but also Oklahoma.
That's a **** good quarterback.
So depends you have on that one.
But I think you recruited five star quarterbacks.
You can plug him in a lot better than recruiting a one star to star quarterback at the middle of nowhere.
Our you know, you don't skip sits at the same town.
And basically that's what I wanted to say is you need to know who's a stable program.
I'm gonna trust Oregon more than USC.
I think you would see you might have the most talented offense, like, you know, outside Oklahoma anywhere west of the message.
Normally, I would say us he has a good shot to win, but I'm not gonna trust Clay Helton in a year right now, where Organ is extremely well, run extremely well coached, extremely good defensively, understanding.
Trust this table program that you have some people saying we don't know what the game's gonna look like.
So trust the team as a talent edge like Florida State is super talented. Miami.
Maybe they'll get it together this year and I'm like, Well, maybe they will, but I'm not gonna trust an unstable program that basically been shipped Shows in a weird here.
But you've got a good point.
Especially since we know that there's not gonna be any nonconference games released.
The vast majority of nonconference games have been canceled.
That right there makes me way more interested in group of five players.
Okay, to the point where if I've got two guys that I think are similar pretty close in my rankings, even if the group of five players a couple spots below, I'm probably going to go with a group of I've got Just the simple fact is, is they're gonna play a lot of weaker come corners.
They're gonna play a lot of weaker defense.
Is that gonna be in a lot more shootouts worth the games? Because neither one of the defense's or probably any good, you know, if I got on Alabama wide receiver up against a S EMU wide receiver, you know, it's if it's Reggie Roper, center of Nevada Smith, I'm going rogue person 100% of the time.
Because Roberson schedule will be so much easier than Alabama's schedule.
Regardless of who Alabama has to play.
I don't even care if they got a cake schedule or not.
They're not gonna have to play.
And so he's not gonna play Georgia.
L s u Tennessee Auburn.
See those types of players? So it makes me much more interested in going after a group of five guy compared to before.
I would kinda step away from the Group five men that 1st 4 or five weeks pretty rough.
I'm gonna have to Vince this guy three out of the 1st 5 weeks. I'm not.
I don't want to invest in that.
I'll go somewhere else.
I'll go toward a power five player because their 1st 3 out of five weeks, they're playing cupcakes.
So that's kind of flipped around for me, too.
So I was thinking about that until you brought that up.
But now that we know there's not gonna be any nonconference games now, that was group about the A a c the Mac.
Those kind of players are a little more on passing because they don't have to play the big boys anymore.
I think if there's one take away That's right.
Take away. Especially for fantasy.
He said, like any conferences in general, I would avoid, Um, not, actually.
I'm going going to avoid on.
But the Pac 12 definitely seemed to have the most tumultuous off season, that of everybody.
Having want to stop season, they should get it.
Yeah, I don't want to get that much right now, but yeah, they got they got some stuff, is still working out, and they're supposed to being can't soon.
And is, yeah, I think they may not be up, but I wouldn't trust any back then there.
Probably only playing other packed full teams so that they don't matter, but yes, yes.
So conferences, uh, pretty much one of the only rules when it comes to fantasy and conferences is I typically stay away from SEC running backs.
Uh, just because of the defense of talent There, the defense of lime town.
I mean, you look in every draft for the past 15 years.
I mean, if if it's a defensive lineman going in the first around, it's typically from an sec.
School is tipping from Alabama and auburn.
Or else you, Mississippi State, Texas A and M.
I mean, I like to bash on Texas A and M, but mostly because they're often sucks.
And it sucked every year for the past 20 years.
But they typically have pretty, pretty stout kids on the defensive line, and you know it playing linebacker.
You know, Look at the Von Millers.
Miles, miles, carrots, those kind of guys.
So when it comes to conferences in general, I don't want any conferences, but certain positions inside a conference.
I'll definitely, uh, mostly most.
I missed those SEC running backs because they're they're having a rock against future starting NFL town.
Yeah, one of degree.
It's about finding the little edges.
I mean, there's gonna be a lot of them, but, like, even even team wise, like Michigan State is in their second bulky quarantine right now, they're not the kind of issues. Yes.
So these other things you need to know, like, is like, if you're bedding is renewing fantasy, you're not gonna want not blindly bet or take a Michigan State player this year without knowing they had a real bad off.
Ah, I thought we got Uncle Jesse here. Your boy.
Uh, what are some teams outside of the Big Four.
That being Obama, Clinton, Oklahoma and Ohio State have a realistic shot at reaching the playoffs within the next few years.
And then he inserted a little hardball gift.
I hope he was in my fifties.
Doesn't not for me within within shooting with, uh uh, you know, shouting distance up off the top of my head.
You can't mention Oklahoma because they get their already.
So if you're looking at teams on the outside looking in, uh, you know, honestly, Florida for is one that comes to mind really quick.
And Penn State I was on.
I was on the show recently that they asked who two dark horses were for Win a national championship this year.
And it was Florida was the 1st 1 to come to mind.
That was before all the news started falling about.
The conference is not constant for the schedules.
Check out pretty easy.
That was looking really looking really good for them to be able to run the table.
They didn't have to play.
Hardly any of the big guys outside of Georgia and l s U.
But but, uh, yes.
Oh, man, It's a good question.
Uh, I don't really.
I can't see Notre Dame making a push.
The A C C is pretty much on lock down with, but with Clemson, the Big 12 you know you got Oklahoma come out of their Texas.
You know they've got the blue chip ratio to compete.
But if you if you should debate against TCU every year them I don't care what you're doing here ****ed me off as a fan on the back to get organ.
So organise as that at least knocked on the door and they were they around on the doorstep last year before they crack down their legs.
USA is years away.
Offensively wise, that could probably score with just about anybody, but but I don't think they're in a spot where they can push.
So I don't think that the playoff is one big grilled different over the next couple of that.
Things are going to see the same groups, the teams you're going to say.
The Alabama's George is Georges Alabama, possibly in Florida.
We'll see how else you rebounds after losing all that talent to the NFL along with the husband, when your quarterback and the offensive quarter of the year.
In the Big 10 you probably have the most ability of there.
You've got a house date, you can stay.
We'll see what Mishkin can do If they can never get over the hump and beat Ohio State, There's just not a lot out there.
I mean, I think we're gonna be stuck with Oklahoma out of the big 12 most years until Texas, you know, grows up, grows a set and knocks him off.
Uh, cleansing that.
I see 1122 teams out of the S E c.
And possibly one of two teams out of the Big 10.
I just don't see anybody else really not coming over the next couple years.
Yeah, Uh, pretty much. I agree.
Betting against the blue blood here.
The big four is not the way to go.
Um, as far as he was a shot.
I mean, it's just the playoff.
You know, that forethought or maybe even the third spot.
I could definitely see some teams making the playoffs winning the national championship.
Probably not, but like Washington was just in the playoff model that long ago.
And that would be like unrealistic nowadays.
Yeah, it seems far away that former for the late Michigan State seemed like that was 20 years ago.
And so I think things have a child.
I think the same thing would happen to them that happened in Michigan State and Washington.
But all the teams you mentioned I agree with.
I definitely think organ has a very good shot.
Once he seemed Georgia.
I think Georgia has a really good shot.
Uh, if they don't make it this year and I'm a little higher on Georgia than you are, but they're definitely right there.
I mean them in Florida.
From a team standpoint, I think Georgia is one of the top three teams in the country.
I just I don't want him from a fantasy football standpoint.
I don't like himself, but when you recruit that, have that have a level, you have a defense that can play that good.
You just You just don't have to turn.
If you just don't turn up all over, you're going to compete for a national championship, and that's what I gotta do.
And that's what they've done for the past three years is that just didn't make mistakes.
And they were, at least in the conversations into the year.
So just the fact that they're going to be so close to being in the conversation, Of course they have a chance.
L s u obviously and, uh, Auburn.
To a lesser extent, they're kind of in that Texas U.
S B category where it's kind of a long shot.
But I mean bone in a five star, and they have a great defense every year and one of the best coordinator's phone next to make you believe they could be right there.
To me, that's what it all boils down to.
Is the defense of side of the ball? Do you have? You have an offense that can score points, you know, 28 35 points.
You don't have to go out there and score 50 points again.
It's getting more and more like that every year.
You know you're looking at teams like Alabama's.
Ellis used the albums over Can't couldn't compete last year with Alabama and L she even though they beat out families because they couldn't score 45 points a game.
You know that's what you have to do to beat Alabama these days.
That's what you have to do to a team like Oklahoma.
You can't be a **** with 14 points.
I mean, it's just it's just what it is in Oklahoma hasn't pretty bad defense, but you have to bear war with teams this year.
USC Oregon You know, that was one of the things that really held working back like cheers.
They weren't really explosive on offense.
I had a really good defense and they were really well coached.
And that's what kept them winning games.
But when it comes down for that defense, toe commits a couple plays they couldn't they couldn't keep up.
So So if you have that, that elite defense and a quarterback that doesn't make mistakes to me, that's really what? What, what gives you the recipe for making the playoffs, you know, because you're gonna be closed.
Undefeated is not undefeated with the defense that can back and win games.
Yeah, um, I think that the only A list the things that might come somewhere close to that recipe, um, North Carolina, the way they've been recruiting chant.
I mean, I think how old has the case for being you know, top to top three.
Probably top three at this point would feel the mark.
The top three. Best quarterback.
Um, so I don't really think it would happen this year, but my the way they've been recruiting, I don't really see, like, the window.
A lot of family defense next year, maybe.
Yeah, I got a lot of moment, um, coming into this season.
And if they can couple this season all this momentum coming into this season and then compete for a nice city championship, I don't have to beat Clemson, But if they can compete in a possible playing in the A C C championship, even if they lose minutes, they could get Yeah, Yeah, they're only lost three will. Yeah.
Um, only the team I have noticed.
I thought some people actually picked him out of the dark course this year.
And I was on that until they had about again the wildest offseason ever.
But I thought Oklahoma State at a real chance to compete. Clove.
I thought I thought they'd be closed.
What do you think about one offensive firepower coming back? Yeah, I think they returned.
Like every single starter on defense who are the only live like one.
And they have a lot that returning yardage and production on offense with talent.
Wallace Spencer Sanders on his, Uh yes, Mr Sanders, and is the second year in the offense I don't have to worry about Drew.
I'm being behind in each other.
Hubbard coming back, run for another Excuse me 2000 yards.
So, yeah, Oklahoma State's probably probably one of the better answers for a dollar course playoff continued for this year, for sure.
I mean, like you said, you gotta be able to score 45 like you over to do it last year to knock off Alabama because Mack Jones through two pick sixes, you know, based on the thieves, that it can have the offense put a 40 five with over a week with it without question.
All right, Um, all right, let's go lighting around.
We got we got a few questions here.
You've got, like, three separate ones here from H.
Q. 451 on Twitter.
My 1st 1 he says.
Do you see Alabama returning to the SEC and college football supremacy loaded on this a little bit, Um or has the rest of the SNC caught up.
What do you think? Offensively? Teams are catching up, but you can't recruit at that high level every single year for the past.
How many years and excitement has been there and people to think that you have dropped off? They lost a couple games last year.
**** happens, all right? Like you said, it took Matt Jones coming in and starting for injured to, uh, and throwing two pick sixes for Auburn to beat him.
It's a great win for Auburn.
It's not the worst loss for album album will be right back in the thick of the national championship chase this year, immediately on for the foreseeable future until next, Saving decides he wants to retire.
Yeah, um, I completely caught on. I agree.
They are still the bath.
I think they're probably the most talented team I want to pick him.
But when it off.
But the second part of the question has the rest of the FCC caught up.
You're not this.
You won't be caught up.
They don't have the margin of error is razor thin.
And we saw that General, all it takes is one flip of, especially in how cutthroat called football is.
He was one game, and that might be your season, you know, is in that definitely as far as a championship winning go.
I mean, that's what it takes.
So the rest of league is caught up whether or not they're ahead.
I don't think anybody's ahead of them.
What seems like Florida, Georgia with Silas last year offer those teams are all really, really close? Yes.
Oh, so look for me when it comes to Alabama until they get to a spot where they missed the SEC championship for multiple years in a row.
I don't I don't want to hear any conversation about Alabama.
Everybody wants to take just because next statement loses the game that the dynasty is over each other. No, it's not.
Yeah, look, the blue chip ratio is is a real thing.
You know, I was listening to show no long ago.
It was the council Bob Rose.
Listen, one of their podcasts and they were talking about it.
But the blue chip ratio when it comes to, we're cruelty.
If you're over that 80% blue chip ratio, which is a five star or four star player on your roster.
Uh, like 18 of the last 19 years.
They were a team with over 80% blue chip ratio, winning the national championship, right? So only year that it wasn't it was It was a weird like I wouldn't say he was Auburn when Cam Newton and then wanted.
It was only year that it wasn't the past forever.
So when you're Alabama's, the album is Oklahoma's.
The Texas is the House states, those kind of guys.
You always have the town on your roster year and in your act.
It's whatever the coach is going to do with it.
Whether you Haiti, more loving, he is one of the top two or three coaches in college football, if not the top coach.
There's a lot of there's a lot of talk you know about its incidence, its next eight minutes that both Swinney is it? There, there one a and one B.
Curtis marks right there, up there with him.
I mean, from a coaching standpoint, James Franklin is a fantastic Coach Ryan days in a really great position.
We'll see if you can continue winning.
You know that those types of gas Lincoln rallies up their their their recruiting high level, and they're just reload there.
They're taking a roster that loses people of the NFL every year and their replacement with NFL town.
So, yeah, until Alabama Mrs two or three years in a row of of the SEC championship.
I'm not worried one bit or intimidate, Stable, retired.
It's That's only two things that old.
They don't kick me off.
The album is the best in the A. C. C train.
Yeah, we uh, like he said, until you knock off the King, they're still looking, huh? Knocked off last year, but we all know they're coming back.
Way got kind of a double part of here, he says.
Uh, Justin Field for Heisman.
Question mark on.
And then is Trevor Lawrence the best player in college football? So we can talk about that? Is the basket greasy when I've men are gonna be the same guys? So when it comes when it comes to the husband, uh, the player that comes in less odds on favourite never wins eyes, so I haven't so last year I was and I get the pat muscle on the back and kicked myself and have to eat, eat, eat my own foot all at the same time on Trevor Lawrence.
Last year, I was totally out on Trevor Lawrence.
Everybody at market is it is the greatest college quarterback it's ever played the game, and I just I wasn't in it, and I'm not gonna crown a kid, but he has one good season.
You know, Joe Borough is not the greatest quarterback ever playing college football.
He had one good season, right? So I'm not gonna cram the guy.
So he comes in last year.
Hasn't really rough first half of the season, and I'm over here doing a victory lap.
I'm having a good time.
I'm talking trash.
The guys on at that breakdown.
I'm living it up well in the second half.
The seasoning absolutely dominates and carries into another national championship.
So? So when it comes toe the odds on favorite to win the you know, you pretty much have just been fielding Trevor Lawrence right there.
One a and one B.
I don't think you want him when the husband who will, but whoever comes in is the odds on favorite abuses They never do.
They never win the husband.
So that's that's a bad bet to go build and put put your $100 on Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields because it hardly ever works out that way for me.
If I'm betting on Heisman Trophy winners, I'm betting on somebody Lower odds.
That's gonna give me a nice fat return on my investment.
So, uh, can they went up? Sure.
I mean, they're they're both likely gonna run the table if not only have one loss.
Uh, they're both going to put up crazy numbers.
I mean, I mean, hell, Fields had 50 total put stones last year.
And what, uh, tripped Lawrence had 45 told so I mean, it's can they? Sure, will they? I don't think so.
And then when it comes to, if Trevor Lawrence is the best player in college football offensively Yeah, I think he is.
I do think he is coming in.
He showed me enough last year toe where I could hop on that train a little bit.
I put my foot on it.
I'm not gonna jump all the way in there.
Uh, I wasn't ready to crown him after his freshman year.
But now that he's done it for two years and finished really strong for, you know, half of this season last year and let's let's let me let me make sure I'm clear about this whenever I say had a rough half the season, he was still one of the top quarterbacks in college football for the first half the season.
He just threw a lot interceptions and he fixed that problem and then continue.
Toe absolutely dominate people the rest of season.
So, uh, you know the reason why I gotta have my victory lap for the first half is because he come out and played like a regular person.
He didn't play like this world beater quarterback that you're playing on video games with.
But even him, as a regular regular quote unquote quarterback was still better than probably 80% of the quarterbacks on a field on Saturdays.
So, yeah, I think Trevor Lawrence is the best player in college football this year, especially offense.
I know there's a really big time stud defense and play there is out there, so I'm not going to compare apples to oranges But when it's coming offensive players, I think Dr Lawrence is clear.
Cut number one guy.
Um, first field Heisman.
Like I said, it's almost impossible to pick the Heisman.
Uh, I think I'd probably give a slight edge over Trevor Lawrence just because, like, Clinton gets into a lot of blow out and I think they're probably gonna both go undefeated or at least have, like, what? In 1995% chance of going undefeated.
So I just trust field to get that six.
Just like I said, more than just Lawrence.
They're going to be neck and neck, but, uh, yeah, I don't What kind of things like Ohio State might be like Dooper High on the Nuffield.
Yeah, There has been a lot of Lawrence once.
It feels like it's been a while.
I just kind of have a feeling that's not bad.
But again, it's kind of a crapshoot when taking it.
Um, as far as travelers, the best plan called football.
I'm gonna say no, Uh, because I got to go, my boy tonight, Tool, A lineman at Oregon.
My seen my thing.
Ridiculous, but, uh, just see if I got like you look at what he did last year, and it's just really like a lot of people are saying they're the best lineman.
They've seen air 20 years.
Uh, he's really good.
Um, that's not me saying anything bad about Lawrence's get like, I don't think it was better.
Yeah, because you're looking at a top five pick and that offense of lineman out there.
I mean, depending on where the needs follow for teams, you know, setting Miami comes out and ****s the bed again, and they got number one overall pick.
I mean, they're probably trade out, but if they were to take it, they don't need a quarterback.
They don't need Trevor Lawrence.
They don't need Justin Field.
So maybe they do go off.
It's time to get into a little bit protection.
So So, yes, So he's definitely a bona fide top pick.
Just because you go number one draft doesn't make you the best player in the in college football means that quarterbacks typical go number one because that's what's the most important position on the field.
That's what I'm gonna say.
While I think tools better at what he does, I think he probably is the best player, the painting.
If I'm starting a college football team from scratch, they say, Okay, Corona virus killed the empty A.
Uh, JD, your of your you're picking a team from scratch starting your own.
I take Kevin Lawrence because I think quarterback more important.
And this is this is the most important mission sports.
Last, when I leave, uh, one more question said any coaches on the hot seat? Um, I actually have a little lift.
You want me to give you my left ear first? Let's let's little Brit.
All right, here's what I wrote down your boy. Calm Herman.
That several that helped me remember reminded me better.
Uh, I got both the l A.
Guys Clay Helton and Chip Kelly.
Kevin Sumlin at Arizona Might gum Mike Gundy, Oklahoma State.
Just weird offseason.
Uh, Harbaugh, Gus Malzahn Auburn to electric Dino Babers that nobody cares about anything.
Yeah, those are all bona fide boat five guys there.
The 1st 1 to come to my mind was, of course, time, Herman, Because I am a saying, uh, you can't have that the 10 win season and knocking off Georgia in the Sugar Bowl and followed up with a 78 win season.
That's just you can't you can't have that cop type of town on the field, which we've talked about that all night long, that type of town on the field, that type of blue chip ratio, and lose games for no reason at all.
But, I mean, and even the games that bet you win.
They weren't a good convincing win.
You beat Oklahoma State.
Cool. You still give up 500 yards offense.
You just happen to keep him off the scoreboard. Okay.
Uh, you beat Kansas 52 48 absolutely freaking shootout.
You can't You can't do that kind of stuff.
Jimbo Fisher, even though he's got the big town guarantee contract, Uh, they're paying you to win games.
They're not paying you to go 7758 and four.
They're paying you to go.
Tended to 11 1 playoff contender as to think both of the u.
S. U S e and U C l A guys. Absolutely.
You see it like not I'm not.
Not so much like from a prestigious standpoint, but I mean, they paid Chip Kelly.
Big time money to come in and bring a offense to come in and score points and put fans in the stands.
That kind of stuff, they're not really doing that.
You can see he better win this year.
I can't believe you didn't get fired last year, and I don't think own review did it because they rely on the scoreboard up toward the end of the season.
And Kevin so much should be being employed.
He is awful, I think.
What? Kingsbury beignets offensive coordinator.
He wouldn't even have a job anymore.
Yeah, uh, it's a weird year for coaches normally predict, like most guys to be fired, but with the budget thing.
Uh, I think a lot of schools where a guy has a big buyout, like, I think, helping.
And Kelly, you know, Kelly has a big one.
I'm pretty sure that's the only reason he's still there.
Um, I don't I'm not a big USC guy. I mean, I root for Oregon.
Um, but, uh, I mean, I think Graham Harrell is a really good coach.
I think he's like one of the best offensive coordinators.
I think it's every it really help him.
I don't think they would hire Harold to the head coach.
It doesn't seem like they're going that direction.
I think they should like recruiting wise.
He's he's the only really helped me because I 100% had Graham Harrell not being walking to corner.
What's he would ahead Cliff Kingsbury and he not went Teoh Zona.
So maybe maybe it's maybe it's just that scheme is kept in there, but yeah, I mean, that's that's what you need out there in the Pac 12. Right now.
You're not really winning games with good defense is anymore.
You're winning games by outscoring people.
That's and ask fans.
That's what we want to see.
We want to see points up on the board.
I don't care to watch a 6 to 3 game.
That's that is the most boring **** in the world to make out, and especially if it's my team involved.
I'm I'm really having a bad Saturday, so those offensive minded coaches let me look.
Look at the job, Brady's.
You know, those kind of got there making big time money because their offense a month. You know they're there.
They're getting paid because they can open.
They can get guys open and make running lanes at essentially nothing just because of their scheme.
So for sure, uh, without the last question, Yeah, that was the last one right there.
I got one from a big buddies of mine that I run around with it and playing my home leagues.
And then that that'll do it for us.
So their question was, Was it was twofold.
One of them was running to you draft Todd ends and much of strategy, which we already covered that.
All right, So me if I'm not getting more those top 34 guys, I'm waiting.
I'm just punt it to the end of the draft, But I will over pay for for a good tight end so I can feel confident in that position going forward.
The second question was, whenever it comes to your fantasy football overall strategy, when you're looking at running backs and wide receivers, are you looking mortar drafted as they get the higher value orm or the guys that can bust open a big place.
So the best way that I can put that in tow.
Players comparing is a guy like Jerry Patterson at a Buffalo or a guy like Travis at TN out of Clinton.
Okay, uh, so something on Twitter today? I can't remember who posted it, but, uh, I look at up bomb chattin, but Travis at the inn is the leading returner of forced, uh, missed tackles.
So career Fourth Miss tackles among returning running backs for this year.
Travis 80 and 173.
Jerry Patterson, 1 34 Trey Regas, 1 33 Puka Williams surprisingly, at 1 22 and Trey Sermon at 1 13 Now Jared Paterson is a 20 plus carry a game running back.
He gives you a safe floor, right? He can also have these big blow up six touchdown games, but those are pretty few and far between and then traps that TN make male and give you 12 carries a game.
But he may give me five or six catches, and he has that ability to rip off these huge 50 60 70 80 yard touchdown runs and touchdown catches.
So whenever you're drafted, what are you looking more? Are you looking at the guy that can rip off the big ones game in, week in and week out.
You look at the guy that's going to get that 20 carries, even if it's for 100 yards and maybe a touchdown or a guy like at the end, that could give you 12 carries for a buck, 55 2 touchdowns.
What's your what's your preference there? Uh, definitely going for the guy who gets the workload.
So I think, uh, carries.
And if they're wide receiver tight, end the target.
I think those are the two mobile, most important things You can look at carries and target, especially for college, because the NFL, you have a lot of weed guys and a lot of them are getting a lot of targets a lot.
I'm getting a lot of carries, then you gotta look at it in the FF.
If a guy's getting a ton of Carrie and he's getting a ton of target, well, his name.
Yeah, there's 130 teams.
If you know his name and he's ranked highly, he's just and if he's also getting a ton and carries and he's getting a ton of targets, I mean, it's by far the safest.
It means they're more consistent because they're going to consist, especially if it's PPR, something with targets there.
You don't have to look at the matchup each week.
It's a set it and forget it.
Uh, the way you win championships and win every single week consistently is if your players are consistent.
If they get a lot of carries to get a big workload, they get a lot of targets. Fog.
Are there gonna be consistent? So I would definitely towards the consistency.
Yeah, say the safe ends air in the standard Answer is volume.
Volume is king and often NBC Sports.
If you have a guy with four opportunities here in a guy but 10 opportunities here, I'm taking the gala, taking opportunities 10 out of 10 times.
The only thing that I can think that would change that thought process for me is if you play in a league that has big time bonuses for for big place, so that I know in in Ali's, we have a six point bonus for a touchdown that's 50 yards or more.
So a guy lack, uh, seeded lamb was way up higher on boards for that league for me as compared to other lives.
Could see the land may wanna get you 55 or six catches game.
But he's one of those guys that could easily rip one off for 75 begun Travis at the end of the exact same way.
You know he's gonna get your 12 carries a game, but he's one of those guys that'll pretty consistently rip off the big touchdown run.
Jerry Patterson, great running back.
A lot of carries really, really safe.
But he's not the guy that's going to rip off to 75 yards on a regular basis, right? He's that big.
Bruise it, you know, punching amount 35 carries a game, top of running back.
So the only thing that kind of would sway me away from the volume is if you play in a league that scoring benefits, that big play guys so and then it really wouldn't even swayed me that much.
So I wanna make sure I'm clear on that.
It doesn't sway me that much of that much at all, but if I got a guy that you know, he's a 18 carry again guy next to Travis that team, which is a 12 carry again God, Then I'm probably going at TN because he has more ability to bust the big ones.
I would say the only thing I would have to add on that is, um, like a college is different.
Also in looking at Matchups week to week.
Yes, I'm dropping season long.
I'm always gonna go with the consistency guy and the guy's getting carried.
But weeks a week like I would my mention Cameron rocked by Yukon when he was playing U Mass and et you two of the worst defense is in the lead, especially u Mass.
Like the worst defense of all time.
I probably played him over some guys who are consistently outscoring him.
So I do want to have some guys that session on the waiver wire.
I'm gonna look at the guys to blow up a plane.
He's probably gonna go for 30 points.
So it is something you actually look at the blow up Bob or in college that was NFL because guys in the NFL was your bloke.
I head again because he catches the taxes and playing with secondary I mean, take.
It's gonna go for two points more often than not.
But you have an explosive guy playing a terrible defense.
He's probably going to get an explosive like college getting these guys dangerous in that house.
That kind of player there.
All right, folks.
That's all for us, JB, You got anything else? No, For me, man.
As we get more news for the college, fancy football season will come back at you.
