welcome everyone to fantasy foresight.
The podcast where your host and co founders of fantasy foresight dot com coming to you from the Rambo Fix your company studios.
I'm Ben, and I'm Jay.
You ready to get rolling? J? You know it. Let's do this.
All right, let's go.
Welcome in everyone it ISS Sunday, September 27th We've got our guy Steve at f f Underscore Encyclopedia Back with us we've got a whole new list of Week three buys and sells plus Steve speculative Stashes, including Are stashing dash Sunday strategy.
So it's gonna be a fun one.
And once again, fantasy first sight.
The podcast is live.
How you doing today, J? Then it's Week three.
It's Redemption week.
Week two was crazy as we discussed on our last pot.
We three can't possibly be the same way, can it, Steve? I certainly hope not, because they're just might not be enough like players left for all of us to put like, rosters out to play with.
So, yeah, I don't think it could be any worse.
And of course, you know, being a Browns fan, um, you already got the nerve shaking a little bit, heading into this one.
I think it's gonna be a little bit of a struggle for us.
But, hey, it's Sunday.
We got fancy football.
You know, I'm just happy to be on a few guys.
As always, Amen.
It's a big week.
Three like you, said Steve.
That's the Browns.
It's fantasy football.
It's these buys and sells, man.
There's just something in the air.
It's gonna be a big day today.
If this is your first time listening, just know that we're speaking in terms of single Q b full PPR redraft by default and all of our fantasy finishes as well as fantasy points per game.
Calculations are all based on full PPR Ltda.
Weeks one through 16 according to fantasy pros dot com.
All right, let's get right into what we expect to be a marquee accuracy week on this podcast, and it starts with our first by the week, and I'm talking about Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
The Titans air at Minnesota at 1 p.
m. Three point favorite in Vegas.
Over under is a nice 49 a half there in the dome, so the weather doesn't matter, and he is currently aggregate projected Q B 17 total Foresight is buying that with a rank of Q B 14 and he sits in with the ninth best quarterback strength of schedule at fantasy foresight dot com this week.
And when you take a look at their own line, they have just given up two sacks this season that is tied for few, fourth fewest allowed, and Derrick Henry is averaging 100 plus rush yards per game.
And when you look at their opposing defense in two games, Minnesota has just one sack.
Five Q B hits, one interception in two forced fumbles in week one, a Raj torched Minnesota and weak to river sucked verse them, as he typically does nowadays.
In Week 3 10 Hill will look a bit more like a Rajan, a lot less like Rivers.
Verse that verse that Vikings defense.
Tannehill is currently second in past touchdowns.
He's thrown zero interceptions.
He's 10th in completion percentage at 70 plus percent.
He's doing all this without A J.
Brown, and he's currently the 11th most consistent quarterback in football.
And remember, he was Q B two in that metric last season, so This is nothing new If you're not believing in Ryan Tannehill.
Still, at this point, catch up so verse.
An accurate projection of Q B 17.
I am absolutely buying Tannehill this week.
I gotta tell you, you know, we made a lot of it after the last season in our review podcast about how great Ryan Tannehill was, and we question whether or not he could do it again in a full season.
You know, coming in as the starter and he's doing it.
He's looking fantastic, throwing the ball.
Vrabel is putting him in a great position to be successful, as we should have expected.
And yeah, man, that Minnesota defense that Minnesota team in general just looks like a mess right now.
Like you said, they're in a dome, he's spreading the ball around.
All he has to do is beat Q B 17 and I am going to go with the odds and say he beats that as well.
So I'm gonna buy Ryan Tannehill.
Yeah, like you guys both said he's looked fantastic so far this season and kudos to him because I was definitely one of those people in the camp of like you know, I need to see a little bit more out of him.
You know, a Sfar is buying into Ryan Tannehill and he hasn't disappointed.
And, yeah, the aggregate projection of q B 17.
Yeah, I'm I'm going to buy that.
He finishes much better than that this week.
You know, I think a lot of people the only concern would be well if Derrick Henry has a dominant game.
But I don't know if you guys have noticed, but Derrick Henry struggling so far this season.
I mean, he's getting the yardage.
He's been in the end zone.
But, I mean, it's coming off of a Nen enormous amount of carries that is not sustainable throughout an NFL season.
So, you know, that's just something interesting to kind of.
You know, I wonder if Brown comes back that will help free him up a little bit and put some more pressure on the secondary and maybe not load boxes.
I'd be interested to see what those percentages look like right now.
True, And to that point.
Steve, this is Darrington Evans.
First week being active.
So I don't know if you have him on your specs stash list, but somebody to also keep in mind this week, just in case anything does happen to D.
Now there's all of a sudden a workhorse back up there, moving on to our next by the week.
You know what we're gonna do? Two in a row.
I'm taking the entire remaining San Francisco 40 Niners backfield.
Total foresight is that is on the 40 Niners are at the Giant Sunday at 1 p.m.
5 point favorite with an over under 42 a half.
Raheem Mostert The beast is out.
The weather is clear in 78 so that will not be a factor.
Jerick McKinnon is coming in with an aggregate aggregate projection of RB 41 total foresight is buying that with a current rank of our B 20 Jeff Wilson Jr.
His aggregate projection is RB 77.
Total Foresight is buying that with the rank of R B 69.
Both of them have the eighth best running back strength of schedule.
And when you look at their o line, the yards per carry average for their primary running back so far is nasty.
8 yards per carry, respectively.
And when you look at the Giants defense, the New York Giants gave up 113 rush yards and a TD to Benny Snell in Week one and 127 yards and a TD toe.
David Montgomery and weak to uh, And then I'm with total foresight once again.
When it comes to both these guys.
McKinnon is by for me because he has finished far better than his aggregate projection in each of his first two weeks, to the point that he is the 17th most consistent running back in fantasy.
Currently, finishing is a back end, R B two in both Week one and Week two, and he's done all this on just nine total touches.
With most out and an expected uptick to McKinnon's opportunities, RB 41 versus this defense should be very attainable.
And when it comes to Jeff Wilson Jr on Wednesday at rotoworld dot com, it was reported that the San Francisco Chronicle believes that Jeff Wilson quote could see the most action in Week three.
That quote alone is enough for me to buy Jeff Wilson verse, um, a measly aggregate projection of R B 77 remember when pushed to the forefront of this back field at the end of 2018.
He finished as P PR, running back eight and Week 13 and running back 28 Week 14 with the same opportunity this week.
Beating an aggregate projection of R B 77 should be a breeze versus parent poorest Giants defense.
And it's all about that aggregate projection this week, fellas, a team that loves to run the ball, going up against a defense that has struggled at times so far already this season.
And like you, said Ben Jerick, McKinnon may just continue his complementary role to Jeff Wilson taking over the load.
And either way, Jerick McKinnon has been getting a lot of the goal line work and those end zone opportunities.
And he's been cashing in so far this season, which has made him very fantasy relevant, and I don't see any reason why that won't continue this week.
So yeah, you know what with those are be with those aggregate projections of RB 41 R B 77.
Uh, I hate to keep agreeing with total four sided with everybody, but I like the odds, and I think they're both gonna beat those projections.
Unlike you, said Jay, It's really just all about those projections.
And how can you not Bye for both of these guys.
You know, Like you said, it's a little boring, but I don't want to go against the grain just for the sake of going against the grain on these ones.
And, uh, you know, the defensive matchup.
Sure, you can attack the Giants through the eras well, but right now, that's really not probably the strongest way for San Francisco to go about attacking anybody right now.
You know, they got the backup quarterback.
They don't have any receiving options.
So it's just like, exactly so you know, it's like, Hey, give the ball of these two guys, grind it out, get the W that you need and move on and that'll There'll be plenty for both these guys to eat and have a decent fantasy data down and just real quick on on San Francisco.
You know, I've wanted to buy in on their wide receivers just because of all the injuries they had, but really, so far they haven't really produced.
It's been all out of the backfield.
It's not running, attack and passing out of the backfield.
That's really been dangerous in the fantasy world.
So I'm gonna continue to buy in until I see otherwise on, and that's what it is. J.
You guys have both said it's a combination of not only the aggregate projections, but this specific Kyle Shanahan offense in the way he schemes his running backs into such quality touches that the yards per carry is six and 16.
You know, obviously, that could come back to Earth a little bit as the season wears on.
But you know, it's that Giants defense.
Like we said week to Benny, Snell was on a milk carton and weak one.
He went over 100 yards and it was against this defense and then Data Montgomery.
Well, you know, how has he been looking? He's been a little out.
You were not sure what the bald out against this team.
So it's It's all there for him.
And when we put these lists of buys and sells together on this podcast, we do everything we can to avoid repeat after, repeat after repeat and try to bring you a variety.
I'm making an exception.
We need to have a talk once again about Alan Freaking Robinson.
Chicago Bears wide receivers on the road at Atlanta today at one PM Atlanta's a three point favorite with a very nice over under 47 a half, obviously there in that dome, whether it's not a concern, Wide Receiver 33 is now the aggregate projection for a Rob total.
Foresight is buying that currently has him in his wide receiver. 18.
Strength of schedule clocks him in with the 4th, 4th best at the wide receiver position, and the old line in Chicago has given up five sacks.
That's tied for 10th.
Most allowed the fight, allowing Mitch the fifth most time to throw.
When you look at this Atlanta defense, they have allowed 38 points to Seattle in Week one in 40 points to Dallas and weak to uh, Rob is tied for 10th in targets with 18 9 in each game.
So far, even Mitch Robiskie can be competent verse this defense, and if Mitch is decent or better than a rob will absolutely shine.
I thought an aggregate projection of wide Receiver 30 was disrespectful in Week two.
And now in Week three, we're talking about walking backwards and an aggregate projection of wide receiver 33.
Mitch or no Mitch Rob is that good, and I'll buy him to meet or exceed a back and wide receiver three every single time.
All right, So he was wide receiver 30 and aggregate projections last week and finished wide receiver 78 burned us last week.
And this week he's going up against a porous Atlanta Falcons defense.
Thea Only problem I have, though, Ben, is that you mentioned it.
That's Seattle put up so many points, and Dallas put up so many points, the difference being they have Russell Wilson and Dak Prescott behind center in those offenses.
And now you're asking me to trust Mitch Robiskie and you all know how I feel about my boy Mitch.
It's not about Alan Robinson in this case, it's about the guy getting him the ball.
And can he do it enough for Alan Robinson to beat WR 33? Like Steve said, I don't wanna go against the grain just to go against the grain.
I wanna be correct.
And Alan Robinson did burn us last week and we blamed it more on Mitch.
So you're asking me to turn around and trust Mitch this week? I'm going to go against the grain and sell Allen Robinson this week and just I'm not gonna be a believer in Mitch and he's gonna burn me this week, and that's fine.
Hey, can't blame you for that, necessarily.
That zit sound logic to avoid Mitchell Torbinski because But, you know, I'm gonna go ahead and buy, though for a couple of reasons.
Azzawi mentioned the matchup, right? It's Atlanta, you know, you figure at least Atlanta.
They could put some points on the board.
Make this, you know Mawr Oven, Air it out game, then trying to run.
David Montgomery is often, and then you know what I just think.
Additionally, it's just almost for me, like playing a numbers game.
Like how maney weeks can we realistically go without Alan Robinson finishing in the wide receiver three range? So I feel like Wide receiver 33 if there's gonna be a week to do it, At least this is a matchup that's conducive to him getting the targets and finding himself, you know, against the soft defense where he can put up the numbers to exceed that.
So I'll go ahead and buy.
But of course, you know, mentioning it's the land a few balls or eating casual, don't you think? It's a little bit odd, though, that Vegas has the over under on this game lower than the Minnesota Tennessee game? It's a little eye eyebrow raising.
I mean, Atlanta's offense is explosive and their defense is equally bad.
Like I get it, it is mixed.
Robiskie and I don't expect 38 or 40 points like the Seahawks and the Cowboys have mustered against them.
But because it is this defense, Mitch ought to be able to muster 21 to 24.
And if they do that, I think it's going to have to involve Allen Robinson to an extent farm or involved in wide receiver 33.
So you know that I'm with you, man.
I'm I'm very fatigued on mixed Robiskie.
I'm very fatigued on Allen Robinson not having a stud quarterback to throw him the football and unless, unless Chicago does something very definitive with their quarterback position I just hope he doesn't sign Free a rob man.
Let's go free a rob man.
He is like Mike Evans never had a good quarterback to throw him the ball in his entire career, right? And now, thankfully, one of the few consistent, beautiful, bright spots of this fantasy football season is a very nice rapid ascent in and like a promotion on this podcast from speculative stash toe waiver ad to now buy of the week.
We're talking about Atlanta Falcons quarterback Russell Gauge, uh, the same game as what we were just talking about.
One PM Home verse.
Chicago three point favorite.
47 a half point Over Under and his aggregate projection.
Russell Gauge is wide Receiver 36.
Total Foresight is buying that because they have them at wide Receiver 31 at fantasy foresight dot com.
Our foresight strength of schedule gives the Falcons wide receivers the second best strength of schedule This week.
They're old line has given up three sacks.
That's tied for 13th fewest, and they've given Matty ice the 88th most time to throw on.
When you look at the opposing defense of Chicago, Danny Amendola and a gimpy Golden Tate combined for 10 receptions in 128 yards.
Verse this Chicago D in weeks one and weak, too.
Uh, neither of those guys are half the talent of Russell Gauge at this point in their respective careers, and neither of them have Matty ice thrown on the ball.
Currently, Russell Gauge is Check this out and listen closely.
Russell Gauge is 13th in receiving yards.
Russell Gauge is eighth in targets.
He is tied for sixth in receptions and his wide receiver 11 overall through two weeks and through two weeks, he's been the eighth most consistent wide receiver in football.
Now with Julio Limited and especially if he's out.
No one, not even Calvin Ridley will benefit more than Russell Gauge, because if Julio sits now, Ridley becomes the defensive focal point.
While Gauge will still be running free, mark it down Gauge is as nice of a wide receiver three as anyone out there right now, And technically, he's currently a fantasy wide receiver, one currently sitting at wide receiver 11 so verse in aggregate projection of wide Receiver 36.
Yeah, this by is the lock of the week in my opinion.
I am all in on Russell Gauge.
You know what? We've seen some opportunities for guys who have played second fiddle to somebody else in their offense, be able to step up and be the WR one.
And it hasn't really worked out so far this season.
You know, we've been burned a couple of times by guys all of a sudden having the top DB cover them.
But this is different.
Russell Gauge won't have to move up and be the number one receiver on that offense.
Calvin Ridley will.
So I could see maybe potentially a dip for Ridley, not living up to expectation.
But I love Russell Gauges point in this offense now because he's still not going to get the top corner defending him.
He's still gonna be able to feast against that defense.
And really, Chicago's pass rush is what's notable about that defense.
So that'll be a nice matchup to watch.
But that secondary certainly could be a tax still.
So yeah, against a Nagra get projection of wide receiver 36.
I'm all in on Russell Gauge man.
I know it's boring, but Ben, you you you know, we talked a little bit about this when you know where I'm headed but definitely gonna buy Were also gave Just, you know, he's like one of my guys root for him And, uh, you know, I think he's definitely underrated.
And, yeah, just for all the reasons you guys already laid out for the listeners, Yeah, this is a bile away.
It's a pretty easy one in my opinion.
You know there's There's been a lot of unnecessary surprises and disappointments, to say the least in this fantasy football season, and it's just been very nice to watch.
Like you said Steve, almost like a homegrown guy on this podcast.
And like a marquee guy at Fantasy Force like this whole off season for sure and moving on to our next.
By the week we've got another wide receiver for you and we're talking about New Orleans Saints wide receiver trade Kwan Smith.
He is at home verse Green Bay on Sunday Night Football.
The Saints are a three point favorite, and there is a nice over under a 53 points.
Uh, they're in the Superdome and his aggregate projection is wide Receiver 64.
Total foresight is buying that.
I'm a surprise about how slightly total four sides buying that with a total foresight.
Rank of wide receiver 62.
The Saints wide receivers have the 17th ranked strength of schedule this week, and that old line has been elite.
They have given up just one sack, which is second fewest in the league in Green Bay.
The opposing defense has allowed Adam feeling to go six for 1, 10 and two touchdowns in Week one and gave up to pass touchdowns to the ragtag bunch of the Kenny jealous wide receivers in Detroit and we two.
It's pretty well do***ented at this point that Drew Brees called for trade Juan Smith to break out this year in the off season.
And with Michael Thomas still being unavailable, he was clearly the wide receiver with the most chemistry with Breeze and weak to finishing his wide receiver. 29.
Since nothing is really changed for him this week, it's pretty easy to buy track Juan Smith versus an aggregate projection of just wide receiver 64.
Yeah, I'm with you, you know, for a couple of reasons.
One, I'm a little concerned just because so much was made of Drew Brees last week in the way his arm looked.
But with the passing volume, we should expect against the defense, where the Packers did not address wide receiver in the off season and they did not address that defense in the off season.
We've seen that through the first two weeks, even though they've been able to pick up winds, I expect some points to be scored.
You know, even if New Orleans falls falls behind early and they have to play catch up, I think I think game script, no matter what plays into the hands of trade.
Kwan Smith, he's Somebody's gonna have to catch balls.
You know, it could be Jared Cook in the red zone, but moving the ball.
Otherwise, I expect big weeks from Alvin Kamara and then track Juan Smith against a A Nagra get projection of wide receiver 64.
I mean, how can I bet against that? So I gotta be a by here just because of the odds? E have to be honest, guys, I've been struggling quite a bit with this one, and some of us just that man Drew Brees.
He doesn't seem to throw the ball downfield too much, but they were able to manufacturer targets for this guy last week.
So, you know, just talking through it allowed based on what you guys were saying.
Yeah, I think again.
I know it's boring, but Wide receiver 64 he's really, I mean, he really is the best option they have to throw the ball to outside of album Camaro.
I mean, Jared Cook certainly is.
Ah, Red Zone target.
But as far as anyone who has, like, you know, some true playmaking ability, you know, that's no knock on Manny Sanders.
Just he is what he is at this point in his career.
So, you know, I'm gonna bet on him getting that one home run ball or, you know, even if he finds his way to five grabs for 56 yards, you know he's gonna be ableto out.
Outpaced that wide receiver 64 mark.
That's it, right there, Steve.
He doesn't even have to have a home run ball he has to do is exactly what he did last week.
And his situation is exactly the same.
Except I would call a Raj even without Davante Adams more explosive than the Raiders offense, so Vegas has still got the over under 53 for a reason.
Davante Adams is a game time decision, but you know how I feel about game time decision, guys eso you know, it's it comes down to a wide receiver 64 I think that's that's why we have total consensus on here and again.
If you are looking for us to argue and yell at each other today, I apologize.
I only care about one thing this week, and that's accuracy.
And the fellas you know, the guys disagree with me when they disagree with me, and there are certain times when we all agree and when we all agree.
As much as we enjoy yelling at each other, it might tell you something.
So moving on to our next By the week we have, we're moving on to a couple of tight ends.
First up, our guy Russ is gonna like this one.
Tennessee Titans tight end John You Smith.
The Titans air on the road at Minnesota Sunday at 1 p.
Today, there are three point favorite within over under 49 a half.
The aggregate projection for John who is tight end for 18 total foresight, is emphatically buying that with a current rank of tight end. Six.
John, who has the 10th best strength of schedule this week in the old line in Tennessee, has given up just two sacks, which is tied for fourth fewest allowed.
And when you look at that opposing defense, Minnesota Moe Ali Cox just torched them from the tight end position last week.
Five receptions for 111 yards on with A J.
Brown out in Week two.
John who went four for 84 2 touchdowns and weak one.
John, who had yet another touchdown and will be a primary red zone target in that off in that offense all season long, there's no reason he's not projected as in every week.
One easy bye for me.
First tight end 14 this week.
Yeah, I'm with you.
You know, it's all about the aggregate projection every time we do this.
And for all the reasons you mentioned, you know, I think that defense certainly will give up some yardage to the tight end position.
We talked about how we expect Ryan Tannehill toe, have a good week this week and with a J.
Brown still out, you know, you have Cory Davis there to catch balls, but they're not gonna throw a ton out of the backfield.
So somebody's got to catch those passes.
And I would imagine John who? Smith.
You know, this is gonna be one of those games where you see the highlight of ah, big play from John who? Smith.
And really just one of those big place should get him in the top 14 at the tight end position.
So yep, I'm all in on as abayas.
Well, is as boring as it is.
I'm with total foresight so far.
Yeah, guys, tight end, 14.
It's The thing is, we know that at the tight end position of fantasy, there could be a lot of, you know, variable performance this week.
The week like it, you know, a guy being a tight end one every single week.
It doesn't happen, but you look at the matchup.
You look at the fact a J browns out and John knew, quite frankly, is on fire so far this season.
Don't find a way to manufacturer targets for him because they do that and, you know, yeah, tight and 14.
I feel like stupid if I were to sell it, so I have to buy.
That's one of those things where it's like I'm very OK being wrong about this one because there's so many reasons to buy in on.
You know, another guy Steve has talked about in our speculative stash and waiver wire? Add Siris on other episodes of this podcast.
Our last, by of Week three is Cincinnati Bengals tight end Drew Sample The Bengals air on the road at Philadelphia one o'clock today.
Philly is for some reason somehow.
Ah, four point favorite with an over under 47.
The weather is clear in 80 degrees, so that's not gonna be a factor.
Aggregate projection for Drew sample is just tight end. 34.
Total foresight is buying that Onley slightly because there's a very small sample.
Size has him in a tight end.
32. But I expect him toe well.
Outpaced that that old line in since he has given up six that six sacks.
That's tied for fifth, most allowed in the NFL and verse that opposing Philadelphia defense.
Washington's tight end Logan Thomas saw nine targets in week one and in week to Philly, gave up five receptions for 54 yards and three touchdowns to Tyler Higbee.
Through two weeks, Cincinnati tight ends CJ you Zuma, Andrew Sample have combined for Get this 21 targets 16 receptions, 139 yards and one touchdown.
If all those targets went to the same tight end, that be behind Onley.
Darren Waller is 24.
So forget streamer worthy.
This guy could develop into an every week option with that type of volume.
And apparently, unless your name is O.
Howard, it will never be hard for Drew Sample to be an aggregate projection of tight end 34.
You know what? If you're playing DFS this week, Drew sample might be one of those steals.
You know, guys, guys always jump up in surprise and you try to pick who those guys were gonna be in this week.
It very well could be Drew sample.
I, for one, just can't wait to see how much and how quickly Philly falls behind in this game.
It's gonna be really fun to watch, you know, when you watch these two teams, uh, You know, I have no idea why Philly has looked awful in two weeks.
Cincinnati, with a young rookie quarterback making a lot of rookie tight mistake's, has been very much in both of their football games against the Chargers and the Browns on the road.
So all of a sudden, you go to Philly If they keep looking at how they've been looking and since he keeps looking at, they've been looking since he's gonna win this game.
Dude, I'm right there with you.
You know, they drove in one game, week one and just got it negated by a bad penalty call.
They were within a touchdown and kept that game closer than it probably should have been.
So against that Philly defense, that has really been pores and disappointing.
That Philly offense is still a mess.
Still can't get healthy.
So, you know Yeah.
I would take Cincy in the points, but to drew sample against an aggregate projection of tight end 34.
Yeah, I'm buying that all day long, and yeah, you know, I think when I talked about sample, uh, what was it on? Sorry.
Yeah, You know, I I admitting we hadn't had the opportunity to go back and, like, watch him play, you know, And for what he did in the fourth quarter on the Thursday night game and then watching.
That's like, Yeah, they he and borough, Definitely.
They look good together.
He was a second round pick, you know? So the fact that, you know, it was the most out, and the Bengals have 21% of their targets have gone too tight ends.
And there's been a lot of targets in Cincinnati.
So the fact is just gonna be one guy that could soak all that up now in PPR leagues.
I mean, like you said then this week, because of the match up, if you needed to stream a tight end, he's only roster 3% of leagues.
Go get him and do that.
And if you don't feel good about Jordan Reed Hey, why not? And, uh, you mentioned some of their combined production, CJ and Drew.
But that also would equate to tight end five in PPR leagues thus far in the season.
So yeah, you guys know I'm buying this one Yep, absolutely.
And now we have several.
How many do we have? 123456 cells for you this week.
Um, s so that's eight by six cells in the first one.
This week is a little surprising.
Maybe Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook The Vikings air at home verse Tennessee Sunday today at one PM Like we said, the Titans Air three point favorite with an over under 49 a half.
And you know the current aggregate projection for Dalvin Cook is RB three Total Foresight is selling that from the standpoint that, you know, we have enlisted his RB seven more of like a middle of the road and I'm honestly expecting more of a back end RB one this week.
So you just need toe make all of your, you know, Wide Receiver three, your tight end stream or your quarterback stream or your flex whatever.
Make your decisions accordingly with manage expectations about what you expect to get from every single player on your offense this week and it you know, RB three. That's a lot.
So just keep that in mind.
The and the Vikings running backs have the 15th length running back strength of schedule, and their old line has given up five sacks, which is tied for 10th most allowed.
But Dalvin is averaging 4.
3 yards per carry and Madison is averaging seven.
So the run game offensive blocking looks to be a little bit more effective than the past game on When you look at their opposing defense versus the Tennessee Titans.
Runde Melvin Gordon finished his RB 14 and weak one, and James Robinson finishes RB nine and weak, too.
Dalvin had just 13 total touches in week one and 16 and weak to he was RB eight and weak one verse Green Bay and R B 17 and weak to at Indy.
So I'm just struggling to understand what people are seeing to project an overall finish of RB three for Dalvin this week.
This is this is definitely a cell for me on Dalvin is not going to get in the end zone every week like he has so far and without three touchdowns.
His fantasy weeks would look a lot different so far and the bikes aren't good this year and I'll be shocked if they're not going three after this week.
It takes a lot for a guy to be RB three overall, and I just don't see Dalvin being that dude this week.
It's a self for me and that's it, man.
It's the price tag.
Nobody's saying Dalvin Cook isn't gonna be good.
I mean, you know, total foresight has him ranked as an R B seven.
That's still, you know, a rock solid RB one.
So you're obviously playing them.
But you know his usage so far.
They played a porous defense in Green Bay and weak one and aired it out.
Adam Feeling had a monster game, and Dalvin Cook only touched the ball 13 times. Then we two.
They play a good defense in Indy, and he only touches the ball 16 times.
So I I don't like the usage so far out of Dalvin Cook.
I thought, you know, they rely on him a lot Mawr, But really, that team is just They've they've struggled so far in football games, and when you're going up against a well coached Tennessee team who knows how to muck up games and grind out winds, you know it may be closer, so maybe they'll rely more on on the on the running game.
But you mentioned it, Ben.
You know, James Robinson had a great game in week two and finished in as RB nine, which is fantastic.
But you're asking me? Yes.
You're asking me to bet RB three or better.
That's leaving zero room for error.
So I got I got a I got a bet against that, and I'm gonna sell and agree with total foresight, Another agreements, but yeah, I was like, Are you gonna You gonna buy this? I can't.
And I've said it before on this podcast.
I have a really hard time wanting to buy most anybody when their aggregate projections that high.
Because it is so hard to finish that.
Hiatt, Any position on a week to week basis? Um, you know, unless you're Christian McCaffrey in 2019 or Todd Gurley in 2017 and 18 where you could almost bank on them flirting in the top three every single week.
But Doblin Cook And in this Minnesota offense so far this season, I don't I'm not gonna bank on him flirting with the top three on any given week, even if it's a great matchup because you just never know how that game is going to go.
So yeah, I have to sell it and sell it pretty hard.
Actually, no doubt Way might have a disagreement on this next one.
We're gonna have to see Houston Texans running back David Johnson is our next sell this week.
The Texans air on the road at Pittsburgh today at one PM and that's really gonna be a running theme in this.
When we discussed David Johnson, Pittsburgh is currently a four point favorite with an over under of 45 a half.
It's gonna be clear in 82 today in Pittsburgh.
So whether is gonna be a non factor, Thank you.
Weather Channel App on the aggregate projection for David Johnson is currently R B 13.
Total foresight is selling that not going crazy.
Still calling him a back end RB two, which is very respectful against this defense because total foresight has him is our B 24 total Foresight also has him coming in at second worst running back strength of schedule.
That offensive line in Houston has allowed the most sacks in the NFL.
J has five yards per carry on the year, but just three yards per carry.
Verse Baltimore in week two.
Do you remember? Uh, okay, First off, when we're looking at Pittsburgh and the as the opposing defense, do you remember Week one? And what that Pittsburgh D did to say Kwan and that terrible Giants O line Total destruction.
Now Denver's one game fared a little better versed them in Week two, but in Week three, the Steelers defaces an old line who's who's allowed the most sacks in football.
Like I said and I expect any production, D J gets to be through the air because in Week One, while say Quan did have 60 receiving yards on six receptions, he only totalled six rush yards on 15 attempts on overall versus similarly bad offensive line for the Giants, Pittsburgh Pittsburgh's D had 11 tackles for loss, three sacks, eight Q B hits and two interceptions in one game.
Amidst that dominance, say Kwan finished our B 23 weak one, very close to where we have David Johnson ranked a total foresighted.
J is no say Quan so r B 13 this week with that old line on the road verse.
The Steelers Who's not selling that God.
The pressure this week on that offensive line is going to be unreal.
And, you know, the smart thing would be is to dump the ball over the top of that defensive pressure and kick it out to the running back and kind of try to relieve some of that pressure.
But you're asking me to assume that Bill O Brien is going to do the smart thing, And we saw in Week one how he went out and surprised with his usage of David Johnson and use him the way you know, some of us didn't expect some of us thought he should, and he did.
But then week to completely went away from it.
Back to the Bill O'Brien of Old didn't use David Johnson at all.
Duke Johnson still out this week, so you know the primary ball carrier out of the backfield is gonna be D J once again.
But again, you're asking me to trust Bill O'Brien, and I can't do it.
You know I want David Johnson to do well.
There's always surprise performances where you write somebody off because they're going up against a very tough defense and somebody will turn in a surprise performance, maybe get in the end zone a time or two because they get a few goal line carries.
So could deejay finished with, like, 38 total yards and two touchdowns and make it in? Sure.
Am I gonna bet that that happens? Heck, no.
So I'm gonna push.
I'm gonna sell d j s r b 13.
I want him to do better.
I want him to, But I can't do it, man.
Yeah, yeah, You know, it's funny.
The longer this episode has been going on, I'm looking through the list.
I'm like, I really want to disagree.
I like and, you know, I just I want Thio.
It's kind of, you know, in my nature, I wanna have a couple of pics different than you guys but a running back 13 against Pittsburgh on the ground, like, um the way, the way that Houston's look so far the way that they've used David Johnson so far in combination of weeks one and two like you, said Jay, The only way I see him finishing in that high end RB Too Low and RB one ranges.
If he does punch in a least minimally a score and he's got to get four or five catches out of the backfield and put up a decent yardage total.
And I just feel like this.
Just ask him way too much, Given just given all the other factors.
It's like what's more likely to happen and finishes a low end RB two high end RB two and I gotta go with low end RB two, if that so I have to sell this one just like everybody else every every week.
There's always surprises, so who knows? But I just can't bet on it.
Yeah, you just like you said.
It comes down, you know, in the off season comes down to the ADP price tag during the season, it comes down to the aggregate projections and managing your expectations.
And when you're telling us to expect RB 13 from David Johnson, we have to disagree with you wholeheartedly aggregate projections.
So yeah, that's Zo.
We're not going to disagree just to disagree.
I mean, the facts are the facts were getting some criticism by our guy Doc.
He wants us to disagree.
Maybe it'll happen on our next pick.
But I'm going to keep on trying to be right.
A L A Rams wide receiver Robert Woods.
The Rams air on the road at Buffalo today at one PM Buffalo is a two point favorite with an over under 46 a half.
It's clear in 82 there, so whether is not a factor there.
The aggregate projection I was very surprised to see for Robert Woods this week is wide receiver six Total Force Itis selling Onley slightly having him clocked in at wide receiver seven.
Hey has the 15th ranked wide receiver strength of schedule.
That old line has given up just two sacks, which is tied for fourth fewest allowed, and the Bills D got torched by slot wide receiver Jamison Crowder to the tune of seven for 1 15 and a touchdown in Week one.
And then we two slot.
Wide receiver Isaiah Ford went seven for 76 against them.
So far this season, Buffalo has allowed 14 for 1 91 in a touchdown to slot wide receivers.
You may be asking yourself why I'm talking all about slot receivers because Robert Woods isn't a slot receiver.
Well, that's the point.
Uh, this matchup screamed slot wide receiver Cooper Cup and tight end Tyler Higbee.
But unfortunately, I think that may come at the expense of Robert Woods upside on his fantasy day.
Overall, that's wide Receiver six is just a bit too high for me and weak three.
And I hate to do it, but I got to sell God.
This was one that I was really debating on.
Whether or not I want to go out on a limb and by but that W R six price tag.
Just leave so little room for air.
You know, I think, man, I'm gonna I'm gonna do it.
I'm gonna by Robert Woods.
I know you said the slot receiver.
Maybe it is a week that, you know he's not as involved this week, But, you know, I'm gonna go with the talent.
I'm gonna go with the risk, and I'm gonna say Robert Woods balls out this week and gets in the end zone.
They've been manufacturing carries form out of the backfield.
There, a little banged up in the backfield.
So yeah, What the Heck, you know, this is your I'm opening the door.
This is your guys chance to take up a couple of games on me? Well, I think we're going to get this one on you then.
I mean, Wide Receiver six is pretty pretty steep.
You have to put up a really nice game.
That's not saying Robert Woods is a capable of it, but you know, he'll he'll have probably true Davis White on him, and that's gonna be a relatively tough match up.
And, you know, he's probably need to get in the end zone to hit that mark.
And Robert Woods doesn't do that a whole lot in the last season.
So yeah, I just I can't do it.
Wide Receiver six.
I love Robert Woods, but I'm gonna go ahead and have to sell him here.
I see him like being Maurin that wide receiver to range.
Um, and certainly not in the top six this week.
Better days will be ahead for Robert Woods, though.
Don't worry about it.
Another cell we've got this week is Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Feelin again.
Tennessee Today at one PM Tennessee is the three point favorite within over under 49 a half.
The aggregate projection for Adam feeling this week is wide receiver 10.
Total Force itis selling that pretty hard and currently as UM is wide receiver 20 partially because he has the second worst wide receiver strength of schedule this week on that online in Minnesota has given up five sacks, tied for 10th, most allowed When you look at their opposing defense and weak one, Tennessee only allowed one wide receiver Jerry Judy with 59 yards to eclipse 30 receiving yards in Week two.
The Jags wide receivers had a bit more success, but not to the point of wide receiver 10.
Cole was wide receiver 17 and Shark was wide receiver 34.
I know this in this low volume offense, feeling has toe absolutely maximize his eight targets per game.
I will not at all be surprised if those who rostered feeling look back and wish they would have sold high after Week one because I just don't know if he has another game like that in him this season. In this offense.
Right now, I could certainly be wrong, but I feel like the Titans are gonna smash this week.
I'm selling Dalvin.
I'm selling, feeling I'm just selling this whole team in Week three.
I mean, feeling only mustered three for 31 last week and this offense that could absolutely happen anytime, every week.
That's absolutely true.
They were home against the Packers and he balled out last week.
They played a good defense and he struggled mightily this week.
They're at home against a good defense.
So which way is it going to go? I'm gonna go out on the women.
I'm gonna buy Adam feeling again.
You know, that team's gonna have to move the ball.
Their backs are against the wall.
They're hearing it from the media.
They're hearing it from the fans.
You know, they're not playing up to what people expected.
So they got to do something.
They got to come out and play.
That offense looks putrid.
They know it, we know it.
They've got to come out and do something.
And the only guy on that offense outside of Dalvin Cook, who is going to catch balls at a high clip is Adam feeling so I'm gonna bank that.
He has a big week this week.
And like I said, I'm going out on him.
I'm gonna buy Adam feeling his wide receiver.
And I admit it. And here, Yeah, Mike.
Mike Vrabel thinks that's very cute, and they're going to be hearing it from the Vikings are gonna be hearing from Mike Vrabel today, you know, Believe it or not, I actually am goingto by Adam Aziz.
Well, um, and for some, some of the I mean, I'm definitely skeptical, but but yeah, I just think that, you know, Kirk Cousins coming off like a It's just a tragic game.
Um, he needs to lean on the best option that he has in that passing game.
And, you know, Adam feeling has the talent to do it.
And you know, Tennessee.
I know they haven't been burned by wide receivers the first two weeks, but they are really banged up in their secondary.
So, you know, feeling might be able to take advantage of that.
So, um, you know, I figured, you know, I'm I'm looking down the list, and I'm like, man, if I'm gonna try to disagree somewhere with somebody you know, this is probably my best shot, so I'll go ahead and I'll buy Adam feeling at wide receiver 10 for this week.
Alright, Ben, this is your chance to get back in and climb back up. Let's go.
Me and total foresight on the same page all day this week.
No surprise here.
I'm selling the last two.
Okay, that's fine.
On the first cell that Jay is referring to is Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski.
The Bucks are on the road at Denver today at 4.
25 the Bucks or six point favorite having over under 43.
It's gonna be clear in 63 weather wise.
So that's not gonna be an issue.
The reason that Rob Gronkowski is on this podcast today is because his aggregate projection is still tight end 15.
You know, I was wrong about Gronk.
I was expecting big things coming into season.
It took me a very short amount of time to pivot off of that, uh, total foresight is selling with the tight end 17 rank form this week.
He's got the sixth best tight end strength of schedule, though, but When you look at their offensive line, they have given up three sacks.
That's tied for the 13th fewest.
When you look at their opposing defense, it doesn't matter.
You know why? Because perrotta world dot com on Thursday, Bruce Arians came out and said straight up that Gronk was brought in primarily to be a blocker.
Okay, maybe that's just Coach Peak.
But on Friday, Grant confirmed it and said he was surprised he's seen a whopping four targets in two weeks because he thought he'd see less.
So can someone please explain to me why he's projected to finish just one slot behind John you? Smith.
I couldn't have been more wrong about what it meant when Drunk followed Tom to Tampa Bay, and I've admitted that adapted and move on.
But for whoever is still projecting him is tight and 15 they clearly have not sell, sell, sell and drop drop drop.
My, I have nothing to add.
Jump off if you haven't jumped off the bandwagon yet.
One, I don't know why you're on it.
To begin with and to leap off.
Get off that thing before it goes off the cliff.
I mean, sure, he might catch a few touchdowns throughout the entirety of 2020 but you're never going to just put him in your lineup and be praying for that to happen.
So you know, that's the only way any of us are wrong.
Selling Gronkowski on any given week is if he catches, you know, one ball for eight yards and a touchdown, not just weasels him right into that top 15 but it's gonna be this week Very well.
Yeah, they're They're trying to pull a Kansas City shuffle on us and make everybody look left and go right.
That's the thing, too, is you know, on the road at Denver, Um, you know the way Denver's played against tight ends.
It's not a, you know, it's not a terrible matchup, but it's not a great one, either.
So you know, even that doesn't scream for any reason to have faith in something so unlikely occurring this week.
So I have to sell perfect, and we already know J is in agreement with our next total foresight.
Sell, uh, talking about Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle Coulter at home versus the hapless New York Jets, India's and 11.
5 point favorite with an over under 45 a half.
Obviously, they're in a dome in Indy, so it doesn't matter about the weather.
The aggregate projection for Jack Doyle is tight end.
17 Total Force itis selling him emphatically.
We currently have him is tight and 27 Hey does have the 11th ranked tight and strength of schedule.
That old line has just given up two sacks, which is tied for fourth fewest allowed.
But again, with the opposing defense, it doesn't matter at rotoworld dot com, head coach Frank Reich said.
Doyle is quote ready to roll, and it's expected that Mohali Cox is to be faded for Doyle's benefit.
Well, I'm just gonna say, here and now in my best Ron Burgundy Burgundy impression, I don't believe you.
There's no way that this team is gonna fade.
Moe Ali Cox for an oft injured Jack Doyle with a gimpy ankle so tight end 17 for Doyle for me, I'm selling at best.
I think he sees half his normal targets this week because, quite frankly, Mohali Cox earned more opportunities that we plane last week.
Plain and simple.
It's a cell for me.
Well, and you know what? I agree with you.
It shouldn't be that way.
Maybe it will be.
Maybe Jack Doyle steps right into his old role.
Mohali Cox doesn't get on the field nearly as much, and we're all surprised by that in a little bit bewildered by it.
But really, against that Jets defense, I just don't expect them to have to throw the ball a ton.
They're not going to sling that rock around.
They should be able to run the ball, control the game script and just write out a nice win for themselves.
And I just don't think the volume is gonna be huge.
Maybe he does get in the end zone and prove us wrong.
It certainly could be the case, and he should get some catches, at least, But boys tightened 17 years back as a starter.
I'm man, I don't like it.
I'm going to sell it and go with total foresight, uh, by I think it's just a game script thing that Jets defense is just atrocious.
The Jets in general, are a Dumpster fire, and like I said, I just don't think the volume is gonna be there.
Yeah, that's a really good point that you made because I, too, was a little bit on the fence with this one, just knowing, like Philip Rivers, Propensity don't want to throw the tight ends and that the receiving corps, you know, they're definitely knocked down a peg right now.
And I'm like, Well, there could be enough for both of those guys to get targets and it's like, Well, they have Jonathan Taylor and they're playing the Jets, who we just saw get carved up by San Francisco on the ground.
So, you know, it just stands to reason like take the path of least resistance.
And, you know, I don't think Philip Rivers has to throw the ball that much and that Doyle, he's not going to get the targets that can. You know, surpassing.
Being tied in 17 without, once again, is I think it goes for any of these kind of aggregate projections with tight ends without a touchdown.
Don't see it being a possibility, so I'm going to sell them.
It's gonna be interesting.
You know what? It's sorry, Ben.
It's gonna be interesting today.
Toe watch this game and see if Philip Rivers can beam or of a game manager and just guide them to an easy win versus doing what he normally does and unnecessarily spread the ball around and turn it over and keep the Jets in it.
And you stole my thunder J.
That was exactly the point I was gonna make.
I agree with Vegas, and they're they're favoring the Colts by 11.5.
But I think that's going to most benefit Jonathan Taylor.
And, like you said, that's going to equate to Philip Rivers just managing the game, letting Jonathan Taylor feast.
Don't turn the ball over.
Don't lose it for us, Mr Rivers.
And, uh, you know and just sit back and enjoy a nice win.
And that's going to come at the detriment of a guy like Jack Doyle.
And again, if this coaching staff has half a brain cell, you're going to keep giving morality.
And maybe this is that, you know, a game kind of like we saw in Week one, where Nohemi Heinz has a bigger role in more of an impact.
You know, he should be getting some more balls out of the backfield because again, they don't have to pass the ball downfield.
Just gas him on the ground like Steve said.
And maybe this is a game for both running backs toe to really cash in and shine this week.
All right, Well, hey, there wasn't too many J.
You disagreed with me in total foresight.
Three times Steve disagreed with me.
In total foresight to times I am in lock step with total foresight this week.
Just 14 for 14 and you know what? That's you know, statistically season long.
That's more often than not the best way to go.
So hopefully the chalk has something for me this week on.
Now we have got a couple of nice little pieces left for you.
We have got Steve's Week three Speculative Stashes.
If you've got some middling wide receiver five or six at the end of your bench, stay tuned to this list of players who could have the potential to, by virtue of themselves or one of their teammates getting injured or something like that absolutely blow up this week and be the priority waiver ad heading into Week four.
And then, you know, he came up with a really great name for a concept we have really driven home for years on this podcast called the Stash and Dash Strategy.
So sit back and enjoy Steve speculative Stashes and his stash and draft strategy.
And yeah, I'd say more than ever start.
Keep it least one roster spot open, if you can, just for stashing guys, because we've seen so many injuries and a lot of us have had to spend in different leagues a lot of fab already.
So you're gonna get to a point where it's like you.
You really hope that you picked up guys before they're gonna be out there and you have to get into a bidding war for, um because we're going to see more and more injuries, and we're gonna I could see a lot of teams just being out of fab, like a quarter worst halfway into the season.
So, um, with that said, we'll get started, have a handful of guys to go over, and I guess I'll start out with first and foremost.
It's more of like a p ece and not necessarily one specific player.
But for goodness sakes, if after week to.
You're not doing this.
Please start all backup insurance policy running backs like if there are high value one and it's somebody else's starting running back.
Still grab them because there's gonna be value there.
Should there start to go down? And if it's somebody on your team e mean, imagine if.
Imagine if, for instance, you had Christian McCaffrey and just before kickoff, you're like, OK, I'll throw Mike Davis on and the unthinkable happens in McCaffrey goes down.
At least you don't have to spend anything for Mike Davis on a four week rental or whatever it's gonna be.
But there are a lot of people I've heard about people in some leagues putting up $450 of their, you know, like 45% of their fab just for that four week rental.
Um, and of course, by the time that one piece or by the time the Panthers have done playing cmcsa unscathed, just drop them.
So, but and so that's what's all about when it comes to those running backs, the back up some.
I understand we always don't have a roster spot available some leagues or deeper than others.
But if you have a spot, you can burn in turn.
Look at the best asset on your team that has a backup out there and just go pick him up for that game on Lee.
And if you get away without an injury, cool.
So, um hey, Ben, before we move on to the first player I have you mentioned a guy earlier.
Darrington Evan Darrington Evans right? His first game.
If you have Derrick Henry, why not before 1 p.
kickoff, throw him at the end of your bench.
Hey, so long as Henry gets pounded, another 30 carries doesn't get injured and just dropping.
So, um, but that's what's all about those backup running backs now first guy have on the list.
Dalton Schultz, tight end of the Dallas Cowboys, as of publishing Thursday morning was only rostered, and 11% of all Yahoo leads.
Um, you know, Prescott, he's not gonna be throwing the ball 47 times every week.
They're not gonna be in a match up like they did with Atlanta every single week.
So, you know, I don't think we're going to count on Schultz seeing 10 targets every single week.
But he did catch none of them for 88 yards and a touchdown and out of the tight end position.
That is a phenomenal week of production.
And, you know, for a guy that's only roster and 11% of leagues, if you have a spot, why not stash him? I mean, the matchup actually is pretty good against Seattle.
We're projecting that to be a very high scoring affair.
But see what his usages like once again.
I mean, for all the reasons that people were really into, like Jar win, you should still be into Dalton Schultz at this point in time.
And if if we have back to back weeks where he's seeing 78 targets once again, then I think you have something.
So certainly we're throwing at the end of your bench.
See what he does this week, and I have to.
You know, I won't say too much about my boy Drew sample, but he is on this list.
Still only roster 3% of leagues and again with how how bad Cincinnati's defense is.
They can't get pressure.
They're gonna they're just gonna get scorched all season long by any competent offenses, and we're going to see Joe Burrow continued to put up probably some relatively insane passing attempt numbers for a rookie quarterback and with all of that volume, and he clearly has a comfort level targeting the tight end position.
I mean, 21% of his targets have gone there the first two weeks, you know, again, second round pedigree guy.
See, See what happens this week.
You know, Philadelphia is a relatively friendly match up for tight ends.
Like like we talked about.
You could plug and play and if you had to, out of desperation.
But somebody does this week in a full game of action being the tight end on that offense.
And maybe he's somebody that a lot of people are running to pick up next week at the tight end position and just got too wide receivers for us.
And I'll start out with Chase Claypool, wide receiver of the Pittsburgh Steelers Onley roster and 8% of leagues.
Um, you know, this is someone who's definitely, you know, a stash.
You're not gonna even in desperation.
You really don't wanna have to put him out there he's only seen five targets in the first two weeks of the NFL season.
He's a rookie rookie wide receiver.
They tend to come along a little slowly in offenses, but out of those five targets, he has caught all five of them for 127 yards and touchdown.
So, you know, you see, even with that limited opportunity, he has really shined with it.
And we haven't seen now, like James Washington, I don't think is a thing and is going to be a thing for this Pittsburgh Steelers offense.
He's in his third year now, and he he's only seen eight targets himself.
He's only caught five of them for 56 yards.
So where I could see Claypool being valuable is in the event that Don T.
Johnson is injured or juju Smith Schuster is injured.
That you'd be happy to have that guy because I think Big Ben would start relying on him pretty heavily to like we're kind of seeing out of Deontay Johnson in Ju Ju.
You know, they're kind of like the one A and one B and you know, it hasn't really amounted to anything yet, you know, it seems more like maintenance days than anything you know, juju, Deontay.
They've They've both been, you know, just a little dinged up already this early in the season, and we've seen Smith Schuster mistime Mawr more often, and we like to have seen him so far in his NFL career.
So that's kind of why I like I like him.
Um, just cause he's looked good and he's readily available.
And then another guy I haven't.
Wide receiver KJ Handler, wide receiver of the Denver Broncos rostered and only 2% of leagues as a Thursday morning.
It's probably been changing with I haven't seen the latest on Jerry Judy, but last I saw he could be a game time decision with his rib injury.
But you know, he KJ missed a lot of camp, had a hamstring that was lingering, finally made his NFL debut last week that three grabs for 48 yards, tied for the team lead with seven targets.
Um, they gave him a rushing attempt to, you know, they've already come out in Denver and said like, you know, we need to find ways to get the sky, the ball, you have no more Courtland Sutton.
You know Jerry Judy might be dealing with something.
So, you know, for a guy that was just shy of a double digit PPR game last week, you could see his opportunity going up and he's an explosive player.
Could could take any given touch that he gets to the house.
He's worth to me like this is the the best kind of spec stash because he's Onley, rostered and such a small percentage of leagues.
You could go out there and throw him at the end of your bench and just see if he pops off.
I mean, I know it's Jeff Driskel a quarterback, but I mean, hey, I didn't think Drew Lock was at all that impressive anyways.
And Driscoll's well, in the sling it around a little bit.
He actually, he put up some numbers against Pittsburgh.
So hey for him at the end, your bench see what happens.
And some of the reason I kind of also targeted Claypool and Handler because it's kind of a good example for, like Ben introduced a little earlier in the podcast.
What I like to call stash and dash and that's literally and you can really start it with your Thursday night matchup.
But you know, you keep that one roster spot open in your lineup and you find guys that for each of the games throughout Thursday night, Sunday at once, Sunday at four Sunday night that if you met, you know, if it's not worth keeping the guy dropping, look at the matchup, see who's available in your league and just keep stashing.
And then, you know, I just think stash and dash sounds catchy, so but you're basically stashing, dropping and just doing your thing and, like all of these are obviously like low odds of hitting on.
But if you just keep doing it week after week, you eventually hit some guys and, like, we'll see real quick.
I don't mean to interrupt, but you've alluded to it before it makes it makes watch everything from Thursday through Sunday and Monday.
That much more fun because, like Steve just said, it's the equivalent of playing slot machines or dollars.
Scratch off lottery tickets for every single game because it's a very low risk.
High reward, easy pivot.
But every once in a while you hit that jackpot, and now all of a sudden you got the next weeks? A top waiver, add or free because of your propensity to stash and dash.
Yeah, I mean, even in our own league of record the four PM games on that initial Sunday of the season.
I just went out and I'm like, Okay, I'm gonna throw Joshua Kelly at the end of my bed to see what happens Now that's a guy that I'm flexing this week is a starter on my roster.
So, you know, that's how I ended up with James Robinson, man.
Yeah, you know, So it doesn't always happen that way, But you have to give yourself the chance.
And, you know, in the situation of Chase Claypool, you know, that's a 1 p.m.
Unless it goes into overtime, that game's over.
You didn't start him, so he's on your bench, so he's gonna be drop a ble.
Okay, well, I'll drop shakes Claypool and go pick up KJ Handler because that's a 4 25 PM game.
KJ has a nice game. Sweet.
I'll hang on to him that, you know I'm gonna keep him as a potential valuable piece for my bench or potential flex guy down the line or, you know, he's a dud.
Okay, I'm gonna drop him.
Okay? We have the saints and packers.
Playing there is our Sunday night.
Is there anybody available in my league that might be worth a stash there.
And you just, you know, you just keep doing that.
So again, um, you know, I kind of dislike the fact that there's some guys in our our league listening because there's gonna be more and more people doing this.
Now, this is kind of like my thing, but, er that I've tried doing throughout.
They all have short attention span, Steve.
Oh, don't worry about they'll stop listening.
So stash and dash, everybody do it all the time is often, You know, if your league doesn't make you pay for transactions, there is no harm, no foul on just picking up and dropping guys all day, every day.
