Hello, everyone between the sour.
You know the deal.
See the title week for fantasy football waiver. While your show.
Obviously, there's a lot going on this week.
We can get the news, click, and then we can do everything else.
With me is Tender and Luke always have shown boys going good? Definitely.
Uh, interesting day.
Obviously, we found out that the Titans have, I believe eight people infected with covert play.
The Vikings? Obviously.
So that is a little bit about question.
Mark Thing is not going to be in the I'm not gonna be in the building until Saturday, said already.
It doesn't matter if we're in the building Saturday.
We're good to go. We'll play the Steelers.
From what I've heard, and the people I've talked to, Vikings should be in the clear.
We'll find out for sure tomorrow.
Additional positive tests and there could be killed.
But there's also a chance that the Tennessee Houston game could be moved to Monday Night Football doubleheader just like Week one.
So I would assume they play it after Packers Falcons.
If we don't know, I don't know.
That's not good question.
Just because I'm pretty sure we'll find out exactly what's happening.
I would assume Thursday at the latest.
Are you guys nervous about Steelers or Titans players? Are you trying to trade them? If you're in a must win weak, you feel like or you just waiting and seeing Tanner.
Um, I'm kind of waiting and seeing right now.
I think we're gonna know a lot more in a couple days.
How? This is gonna play out.
Um, I don't I wouldn't go situation.
Uh, it's I've heard that they were talking about moving the game to week seven on.
And then the Steelers and Ravens both have a buy and weak eight.
So then they would move the Steelers Ravens game That was going to take place in two week A.
In order to, like, make it all work out.
Um, so that's interesting.
And like, it's gonna be tough.
I mean, guys like juju, deonte, Tannehill, John New and Derrick Henry could potentially all not being your lineup this week.
So it's something toe look out for and be ready for.
Yeah, I'm wondering if you almost like, spin this the other way and try to trade for guys.
You know that air on Pittsburgh and Tennessee, especially if, like you said that someone's in like a muscle in week.
Right now, I don't in one of my leagues.
I'm Owen three and have, I think, have to Steelers and a Titan on my team.
So I mean, I might Yeah, it's tough.
I think like if you're in a good spot, try to make a trade for, like, a juju Smith, Schuster, John Smith or something like that.
Yeah, I know someone asked me about a running back question today, and it was pretty much when the news of breaking they're wondering if they should trade Chubb and someone for Ezekiel Elliott there.
Other running backs were pretty much every running back involved with thes two games that are affected by the covert stuff.
I'm like, Well, I mean, good luck at this point.
You may be with just jobs are right now.
But if for some reason the NFL makes the Steelers Titans use their bye week in Week four, man, I'm trading away James Connor and Derrick Henry because there's zero chance those to hold up for 13 straight games, especially we know James Connery's history and we know data, Kendrys, workload.
I want nothing to do with that at, but I would just I don't believe they would do that.
That makes no sense to me, especially if they're willing to play on Monday Night Football.
Who's limited fans? I would assume I can't imagine very many fans would good by the move of one day.
Yeah, I don't think that's likely either.
I feel like the NFL way.
I think that's what's gonna happen, which, by the way, I am going to bet the over.
I'm going to get as much as I can on the Steelers offense like the biggest.
The biggest thing that's going to be affected is the defense on Tennessee.
I mean, defense in general is just reacting right.
It's seeing, reacting, and if they don't have that in person time during the week, they're just trying to make adjustments and installed and all that via Zoom.
It's not going to work in my opinion, especially against an offense like Steelers, and Defend is a veteran.
He knows what's going on.
I would assume he hits them with a couple of big, big shots in the game if they doing that play moving into Monday helps a little bit.
They at least have a eight something.
I'm good with all of the Steelers guy, But I mean, without a doubt, you are acted with this news like there's a lot of fancy relevance here.
So add drops or even more important, obviously, injuries, then somewhat the story of the season in a lot of cases.
So I think we should just jump right into add drops.
Obviously, first position is quarterback less less affected by injuries, Deepest position with football.
So you're probably not panicking too much at the quarterback spot.
But we did see a quarterback change this week with Phoenix polls.
Yeah, stepping in for Mitch Travesty when the game being named starter for weeks before owned in 1% of ESPN Lee, are you guys rushing to pick up Nick Foles it off? Or are you thinking it's the biggest quarterback on? Um, um, I think I would like to pick up Nick Foles.
You know, Let's say you have Ah, you know Patrick Mahomes or, uh, Josh Allen that's coming up on a by I mean, Nick Foles is not a bad quarter.
Not a bad quarterback to place in, Um, maybe just because he played Atlanta.
But we saw his big comeback there, you know? I mean, he's a Super Bowl M v P.
The guy can play football.
Um, I don't know why he keeps getting traded to keep get released.
I think he's a solid veteran toe have, especially if you have a young developing, Um, quarterback in your team just said that veteran presence.
But, yeah, I would go and pick up Nick Nick Foles, especially if one of the quarterbacks is coming up with the by.
And, you know, it's not a bad option to have a streaming quarterback.
He has a pretty tough match up this week against the Colts.
I mean, the colts of they the Jets.
I don't even know if they really count, but they look pretty good against the Jets.
Um, so I don't love the matchup, and I think if you're picking him up, it's got a It's kind of more of a desperate move.
But I agree with, I agree with Luke like, I think Nick Foles is a good player and I kind of like Matt Maggie's offensive scheme so I think he could be a pretty decent option going forward.
What not too excited threw him in this week, and I wouldn't really make an effort to go out and grab him.
Like maybe if I had.
Maybe a Carson Wentz was my quarterback, one like and I felt and I felt the week there, I might go ahead and add them on my bench.
I don't love the match up this week for fools, either.
It's not necessarily because I think the culture anything special.
He said that I'm not a good man.
They suck on the Vikings.
I don't think you can take anything on those to change, but if there's a coach out there that knows anything about Nicole's more than Matt Nagy, it's Frank, right? Obviously spent all the time.
Billy together had the success winning a Super Bowl stuff.
Maybe he knows some weaknesses.
That beef other quarterback I have written down here, Joe Burrow.
He was owning 53% of leagues yesterday.
That shot up with some because that I guess I don't have any waiver period that shot up to about 62% now.
But Joe burrow, keep slinging the ball around.
I keep also saying he's not going to last season.
You took yesterday that maybe think it might have been.
Might have taken a little bit more time off doing, but he got back up.
He was in the game, but he continues to play like he thinks he's Mark Jackson, which is good for fancy points.
It's good for us in the short term.
I don't think you last season, but I think the good fantasy add, What do you guys think? Yeah, I agree with you.
He's a good I think he's a good fantasy, had, um, especially because, you know, he's throwing the ball the A J.
Green, Um, Tyler Boy, I mean, they got a lot of, you know, players that are quality players.
Um, the only thing I don't like is you kind of brought it up there because he's playing like Lamar Jackson.
I mean, I was 200.
I was watching, flipping back and forth between the game last week, and the guy just takes hits like no tomorrow.
And I don't know if it's because his offensive lines bad or just a rookie, doesn't have a slide doesn't throw the ball away.
But that's the only thing that concerns me about him.
But I think the players that he plays with kind of always that.
So, yeah, I would definitely go pick up job, especially if you like You said before.
If you like Carson Wentz is Q B one or whatever.
Yeah, I love the Joe Burrow play.
I had him as a Q B streamer last week, and he and he was able to come through and look like you said.
I love the weapons he's throwing to, uh, a J. Green. Tyler Boyd.
You got two good pass catching running backs coming out of the backfield, and Tee Higgins, I think, was drafted to be the future of this team.
He came through with the big week.
He played on a higher percentage of the snaps last week than any of the other Bangles receivers, and I'm sure we'll talk about him later.
But, um, like Joe burrow through 400 through 44 times in Week three.
That was after he threw 61 times against the Browns and weak to he has the most.
He is the second most passing attempts in the NFL in behind Jack so far.
And last year the Bengals showed us the same thing with the high passing volume.
They were the they were fifth in the NFL in passing attempts per game.
So I really think Zach Taylor just wants to chuck the ball all game.
And with that type of volume and weapons, he's throwing Thio on, he gets the Jaguars next week.
Ryan Fitzpatrick looked great against them.
I think it's a great play and I would definitely wanna wanna pick him up.
Thanks for sending that tip, Seahawks girl.
We had to your point, Joe Burrow second most pass attempts in the league.
He's also been sacked the most in the league to our point.
I just looked that up.
Um, but reason why Fitzpatrick looked good last week was because the Jaguars pass rush isn't very good.
So this could be one of the only weeks that Joe Burrow actually has a legitimate pocket the past for him, and I'm excited about it. He should be good.
Are there any other quarterbacks you guys would like to bring up? I was just gonna bring up to offer the Joe Burrow.
Um, you mentioned all the passes thrown.
I think he only has one interception this year, too.
So he's not making those, you know, dumb rolling out to the right, throwing across the middle late, you know, rookie mistakes.
And so I think, you know, that's just another reason why if Joe Burrow is other and you need him, go grab him now.
I like I like Jared Golf 22 consecutive weeks with three touchdowns.
And I just have liked the way this Rams often just look since Week one against the Cowboys.
Like they looked like how they did two years ago versus last year and golf gets the Giants this week.
So, um, they just gave up 36 points to the to the Niners second string offense.
So I feel like off has to be a good play this week.
Okay, I will say, I mean, he wasn't very good Week one.
That's because the Rams were playing with the lead.
They're almost certainly going to be playing with the lead here, so if they get that double digit lead like they're projected to, they're going to lean on the run hard because they know Jared Goff is the weakness of that off.
Uh, let's go to running backs here.
It's not necessarily a top pick up from a lot of people, but I think he should be.
I don't know why it's not Carlos Hyde owned in about 15% of lead.
We saw that dirty play on Chris Carr person last week.
And, well, it's just a knee sprain.
I can't imagine he plays this week.
He's out probably one or two weeks.
Carlos Hyde, obviously the going to step in as a leap back.
We saw what he did last year with Houston.
Actually had a competent offensive line.
Music Good plays Miami this week.
That's even better.
No reason not to pick him up and start him.
You have any, you know, running back troubles or anything like that.
What do you think about Carlos Hyde as a pig? Yeah, especially in a Pete Carroll offense, where even though they have, you know, a top three quarterback in leaky.
He still wants to run as much as you can.
You know, um and Carlos, it is a veteran.
I think that he's very serviceable.
You know, there's not much competition there other than Homer, I think.
Is Homer the back of Bernie Mac? Yeah.
Yeah, and I don't see him.
You know, they're right on him at all.
Carl sides good back.
He's gonna be there.
He's gonna, you know, take those opportunities that Carson's leaving on the table from being hurt.
So yeah, definitely pick him up and definitely starting.
Especially with that matchup this week, you know? Yeah.
I mean, I'm He's probably gonna be the guy Carson's out.
So, like Seahawks.
They're gonna move the ball and he should be a good play.
The other guy or the next guy I have here has been brought up on every waiver wire show he's still owned and only 46% of ESPN leagues.
That's Myles Gaskin.
I mean, he's be clear lead back in Miami week 1 63% of the snaps week to 5% of the snaps.
Last week, when they were playing with the lead, he had 75% of the snap continue to go up.
It shows that game script doesn't matter.
He's going to be the least guy While you could make the argument that the Dolphins aren't very good and he's not going to have many scoring opportunities, he's still the obvious lead back in an NFL offense and zero reason why you should be on them.
Obviously, we all think he should be owned in more leagues.
Would you consider him as a flex play going forward, or is he not quite there yet to you? So especially, I think it depends if you're playing in a PPR league versus a standard or maybe even half point.
Um, the reception baseline that he's going to give you just that guaranteed points they're going to get out of them is very nice.
But I feel like my biggest concern with him.
Like I love the volume.
Um, I mean, he had 27 touches in the Thursday game.
I mean, 27 touches from a running back, like usually that's gold.
I just don't like he doesn't impress me when I watch him play like in that Jags game.
It just seemed like he was getting caught like he was getting tackled by the first guy most of the time, just like arm tackles we're bringing him down.
So the fact that even with that type of volume, he still hasn't really come up with a big week yet, I think might have test to maybe a lack of talent there, but, uh, he's one of my favorite running back pickups, No doubt.
Just because of the volume has been getting.
Yeah, you You took the words right out of my mouth there.
Um, the 27 carries. Incredible.
You know, it's fantasy gold for running backs, especially off the waiver wire.
Um, I was in the situation.
I had say, Qanbar clearly gets picked up.
Um, you know, I was all pumped for the 27 touches, but, like you said, it just doesn't seem to, you know, turn out a lot of points off the 27 touches and he gets his touchdowns faltered.
Because I've been I've had Gaskin and I think I've had him in a couple fan to line up this year and just watching him.
Um, but yeah, I mean, the 27 character there, you know, it's, you know, you probably do for for a big run here, probably due for a big week just based off the volume alone.
So I'd say Pick him up if you need a flex spot.
That's, I think, the number one flex spot off the waiver way.
Right now, I agree to both of that.
I just looked up the Cem offensive lines.
That's the Dolphins.
They ranked 25th and run, blocking offensive lion, creating about four yard of space.
Myles Gaskin was extremely efficient in his first two weeks.
What's the point? Four yards per carry? 6.
6 it into the bill last week, you would have thought he would light it up against the Jaguars team.
Only three yards material saying, You never know, Never know.
We know this week.
Play the Seahawks high projected total Seahawks defense has struggled.
So you think points are scored.
But again, you guys point if they get down on goal line or something.
Most likely, not the one getting the Let's talk about Brian Hill here.
Luke, I believe you are Todd Gurley fan.
I am on the opposite side, so I'm not going to talk about that side.
I will talk about how last week you got 34% of the snaps had nine talking.
Brian Hill had 34% 9 carries around 13 year out.
To me, he looked like the better running back.
But that's not really what we're talking about here.
He's owned in less than 2% of the league.
Is he a guy that you could see having flex value going forward? Or do you feel him or view him as a annoying handcuffed to Todd Gurley in that he's also stealing snack? Yeah, I hate him.
Um, because photographer listen, But I don't know, because that if Atlanta blows one more lead, Dan quit is not gonna be the coach anymore.
And I think if they bring in an interim coach, I think he's gonna lean heavily on the All Pro running back.
You know he's gonna dio he's gonna have his output running back, his MVP quarterback and one of the best receivers in the league.
So I maybe if you're Todd Gurley, Grab Hill, if you're Todd Gurley owner, Grab Hill.
But otherwise I don't I mean, I think this is just a fluke week, you know, they wanted to switch it up a bit because the bears were coming on that Come back.
See, It's something new. Could work.
Um, I like Thio.
I would like to think that Atlanta doesn't blow another, uh, lied coming into another later. 20 points this season.
Um, that probably won't happen due toa the match up this week.
An annoyance to me.
Um, by suicide, I would I don't think I would want to touch him at all.
I think it's just trying something different.
Maybe stir up the bears a little bit this week.
So I drafted Brian Hill in one of my leagues and I've kind of just been holding them and just keeping them on my bench Just because I don't think talk girly has looked great and this last week Zach, I agree.
I do think Brian Hills like the better running back and talk.
Really, just he doesn't He just doesn't look good to me.
Like, I really think that any, like, strong days from him are behind him at this point.
But I don't see a situation where Gurley still isn't the lead back for this team for the rest of the year.
And like the I would have, I think I would have to take a Todd Gurley injury for me to really want to target Brian Hill.
Uh, but like girly.
I mean, they gave him so much money.
I think he's going to continue to get to carries and most of the work.
And even if Brian Hill gets nine carries like he did this week and runs a few routes, I don't know how you can trust that in your lineup.
Yeah, completely agree.
He's hung around the 20 to 30 net mark so far this season, and I don't see that growing necessarily like I was saying earlier.
Sort of just annoyance to Todd Gurley. True? Thurs.
I suppose Brian Hill is a guy that I drafted on pretty much every single one of my teams just because I typically don't draft kicker and then I just pick up someone who could be elevated to an RV one or something like that.
They got hurt in the priest, so he was a guy that has been on pretty much everyone in my teams.
If he's not still there, I think Brian Hill is a good running back.
People were talking if he came.
Dan Quinn really likes him coaching change could actually hurt him.
Mhm, not necessarily because they're leaning on the All Pro running back.
More saw because they have a lot of money invested in him.
Let's get whatever we can out of them before, because him is a But yeah, I think he should be.
If he If you have Todd Gurley, he has to be on.
There's no doubt about from that.
I don't think there's much.
Let's talk about record Birkhead in my.
So This is my biggest pet peeve among fantasy ****ysts of all time, and I've heard so much of it today.
I can't take it.
It makes me snap the whole well.
It's a Patriots running back, so who knows who knows what's gonna happen? It's the stupidest laziest take in all of sports.
It's Patriots have never been confusing about what's running backs are used.
The only thing that changes is gain stripped.
So if we can get as what's going to happen or the Patriots gonna be up and lean on the run, are they going to be chasing points and being the store? That's how they've been since I've started playing fantasy and they've been easy to project.
Now Cam Newton is at the helm.
We're working with a reduced playbook.
We're working with more of a one year.
Take a quarterback and it's going to be a run first offense that changes things and simplifies it even more.
Add in the fact again.
Teasing piece of James White.
But if James Whites an active this is yes, easiest starting off sports.
Week two, obviously first week thought James wait.
Birkhead played 71% of the snaps. Did.
Did his thing. He had a really good game.
Just confront the end zone.
Last week, played the majority of snaps was 46%.
Obviously, I think you have the hat trick or whatever.
Had a big day looking at routes ran last week, though.
Sunny Michelle ran nine J.
J. Taylor in one.
Okay, Birkhead onto 21% of league play out this week.
Uh, let me play the chief.
What do we think? The cheese they're gonna dio.
You think you're probably going to score a lot of points and pass a lot? Yeah.
The patriots are chasing points.
They're probably going to pass like Seattle and weak to when Rex Burkhead played 71%.
If James wipes out, he's an R B to this week without TV, I too high until expert head or you guys think he's the Patriots running this thrown in the bank? No, I think everything you said makes sense.
Um, just based off the history alone this, you know, you got 71% of the snaps against Seattle due to them being in a shootout, and that's it's almost 100%.
That's what it's gonna be this week.
You know, um, I think I said that we talked about Rex Burkhead a lot, and I think I said every time that he somehow ends up on my team this week.
If he ended up on my team this week, of course, there's a one year I don't have him right.
If you ended up on my team this week, I'm definitely putting him at running back to, you know, I think it be a great play, especially if you lost, you know, say Kwan Barkley or Chris McCaffrey, you know.
So if you have Rex Burkhead, if you could get him, pick him up, put him at your running back to if you have to go running back to put out your flex.
I mean, this is you know, he's gonna get the snaps this week.
I mean, I don't see how that game doesn't go almost exactly the same way as the Seattle game did.
And I mean game script wise.
The fact they've got 71% of snaps in Week two.
I mean that that really does say a lot.
I think ANZAC will give you credit on the show.
Last week, you called out Birkhead is a guy that nobody was talking about, anyone.
You had a great game.
Um, I definitely would be paying attention to James White, see what he's doing.
And if he's out, the market should be a good play.
And also, I think Damian Harris is supposed to come back this week.
Um, so I mean, that's that's maybe where it could go wrong.
Like maybe Damon Harris comes back and they give him the ball. Good amount.
Hey, was a good pass catcher in Alabama, but, um, I wouldn't expect him to really see the field a lot in his first week back.
He was getting a lot of good reviews out of camp, though.
A lot of interviews I got a question for exact, too.
If if If James White is back, then where do you rank Birkhead? You even look at him.
James, What's the more talented pass catching back? And Patriots essentially, you know, with every single position across the board, they just take people who do one thing or two things really, really well, they put him in that situation.
That's why they have a defense full of pretty much no names.
And they're playing really well.
They just rotate on, but I'm in different packages.
That's why James White.
Obviously, we're Badger fans.
So we knew who James Weight was.
But no one knew who he was.
And he's been one of the most study Patriot in a long.
Yeah, he's going to be great Damon Harris, to your point.
If he comes back, that throws a wrench in it.
I don't think he gets a big role playing the Chiefs right away.
I think he takes the snap.
Did it? Taylor probably was active at that point.
Taylor a lot too not Washington Patriots by any means.
I just don't know why he's not being used in as a past catching role that she very capable, right? Like last week, he ran one route.
So obviously, Patriots do not self whatever.
Let's talk about someone who is more established but has been overlooked, I guess, for the past few years, Adrian Peterson only 36% of leads that lead ESPN leagues.
He's framed for 75 or more yards and him so far.
And when the Lions have a lead, it seems very, very clear that they're leaning on the veteran.
Ah, taken week one when they had the lead on the Bears last week when the Cardinals the Lions, ever had a lead.
But are either of you picking up Peterson or giving Peters in love as even our before? Yeah, I'm giving him a look.
I mean, just he he still passes the item.
Hey, he still breaks tackles.
He makes guys miss like he turns out some tough yards, and I mean 22 carries.
That's, uh, like the lines.
Wanna give him the ball? Apparently, I don't see the Lions having a lead against the Saints this week.
Um, but I mean, it's like, I think it's the most bland, boring, like pick you can make, but I think it can actually help you.
I think it's like it could almost be like a high volume, you know, running back for, you know, But, um, the matchup.
Like I said, I don't like this week.
Um, if you're anything like Cris Collinsworth, you think that Malcolm Jenkins is the greatest player to ever play football, So maybe that's not a strong argument.
Thio put him on the squad.
But the Lions, you know, after that, they have a buy and then Jacksonville in Atlanta who aren't very good defense is.
So if Peterson's available, Yeah, pick him up because he did.
I think you got 22 carries last week.
Um, e I mean, he's the one that they're going to run, you know, when they need yards, they need to turn out some clock.
Take Peterson, think about him for a flexible, because he is going to get the touches.
Yeah, they're being very, very slow on DeAndre Swift, they believe, and I've seen a lot of people this week talking about go out and trade for Swift.
That's the one thing you need to do this.
And maybe I think second half the year Swift would definitely have a larger role.
But right now he does not.
So I would get last running back on my list last.
Definitely not least I put him here more of sentimental value.
And so I can tell you how it's his fourth revenge team of here now, Frank, Or can you believe it on an 18% of leaf? Great, stupid Hey, plays the Broncos this week, which, yes, another revenge game.
I'm driving, growing up all the healthy for him.
Uh, ****ed drink or off.
Obviously angry about it.
But Premcor too much.
And Adam Gays. Guy Adam.
Case loves him, and for good reason.
He's probably funneled him all kinds of money because he this is an Atom Gates revenge game.
I fully expect the Jets toe win this game.
As stupid as that sounds, this is the prototypical Jets win Thursday night.
This also could be Frank or his very last Thursday night game ever.
Only on Lee one on the schedule.
I do think Frank or plays passes here but never know.
Come up, Pick him up.
Should be on and no less than 90% of with all seriousness.
Now can't talk seriousness for d EFS play on Thursday night.
If you're playing a showdown, you either of you guys think How do I want? Afraid is Frank Doran plate for you guys.
He's clearly the lead back in for the Jets.
Either of you guys have any kind of interest.
I definitely do like a legitimate you guys.
Um, going back to your point.
You said this is a guy that Adam gays laws.
Um, I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing.
Um, Adam, gays can't be the greatest coach to ever coach football by any means, but, um, yeah, Frank.
Or, you know, he has 66 attempts.
21 attend, 15 attempts.
That's solid enough for, you know, Thursday idea.
If s play, he's gonna get the carries.
Denver is not great on defense.
Um, you know? Yeah.
And even if the jets, you know, are winning like you're predicting, you might even get a garbage can touch on Frank or on Thursday night.
So Yeah, not the kickoff.
He might be back there on the kickoff.
Yeah, especially with the Vic Fangio revenge game.
I think it's definitely a play for DFS this week.
I'm sure he's not value very high. I don't know.
I can't imagine he is.
But so you know, if you're trying to stock up on some Denver receivers or something, and you need a low running back Frank or is the guy you know, to your point, I actually feel like the Jets might win this game just because it's a short week like it's even shorter week for the Broncos have to travel to New York, and then their talks about gays getting fired if they don't win this game.
So I feel like they're gonna bring out all the stops, everything they possibly could Dio and the Broncos air so banged up like the Jet might actually find out a way to pull out this win.
But I think would be kind of fun to see um, the Jets lose this one, so I'm probably gonna go ahead and pick the Broncos in my picking pools in on a showdown for draftkings.
No game contest.
Frank or 6400? Pretty much the cheapest out of really? Get your cameras lower, but just to put him in the same area.
He's Christ pretty much the same. His Phillip Lindsay.
Less than barrios.
Font less than Blake Bortles but gratefully sell Blake Bortles.
Still number one.
Um, but yeah, Frank, or I'm for sure, having a line up with him in my captain spots.
So you get double points and the line for this game? Actually, I locked it in.
Three point underdogs at the start.
It means all the way down to jets or one point underdogs.
Now, with lines moving, they're gonna be favorite love to bet on the home dog.
Case isn't gonna lose prime time of any other running backs you guys want.
Uh, yeah, Jeff Wilson.
Um I mean, with if if most it's still out next week, it's looking like McKinnon is gonna be out.
So, like, I would fire Jeff Wilson in my lineup.
He came down with two touchdowns last week.
That's definitely fair.
Uh, and on top of it, he's a goal line back, so no matter who's in there? I would assume he comes in and has the best chance that have touched down.
Are you? That's a good point.
Yeah, you're using routes to which not like, just shows how shorthanded they are.
And then kind of going back to Cincinnati here Should we even, like, Look at Geo Bernard.
I know he only has two carries, but, you know, he gets the receiving work and I feel like bengal.
See if they're down a lot.
I mean, looking at last week, which kind of I don't know why I'm not plugging this us.
We have some good stats now.
Three running backs.
Excuse it all that as well as wide receiver in the chattering on something.
The running back that counts.
But, um yeah, Geo Bernard played pretty much the same amount as Joe Mixon, 45 basically 40 snaps last.
I mean, Joe Burrow clearly is going to keep whipping the ball.
He's going to be passing on this week.
Sure this is, by the way, if you could buy Low and Joel Nixon, I think before this week is your chance.
I think Tommy game, the mixing starts extra hits just like Joe Burrow, and he goes down her what she's been known to do.
So if you want a handcuff that has a slight amount of value, I think go for it because I don't think they're gonna bring somebody else in to take the majority of the Kennedys.
Jill Bernard's one of those players to who I was watching the game on Sunday like that.
That guy's still in the league.
I feel like I forget about him every year, and then every year he breaks off like, you know, a long screen pass like, Oh, he's still here.
He was like one of the highest regarded people for a second, like he was what we want that would stayed there somehow and continues to do so either way.
But any other running backs? Um, I don't have any of the running backs, but as far as like the Bangles backfield goes, um, exactly.
I know you said that you would buy low on mixing.
Um, are you got like, does it really surprise you to see how this backfield is, like been breaking down the first few weeks? And how worried are you for mixing like, Do you think he can deliver on potentially that RV like that first round running back pick that he was? Or should we like what we've seen? Is it enough to say maybe he's not at that level? I don't think he's at that level.
I just don't think it's his fault, though.
I think it's offensive lying, Um, and I guess if they did find themselves with the lead, I would assume he did maybe 70 30 share of the snap Geo Bernard.
But I don't think he's going to deliver first round value.
I think he was just overvalued and we were hoping he would be healthy and look amazing.
Essentially, the lady in Bell of Pittsburgh, like he kept being compared to Yeah, I think he's the talents there.
He's going to have big weeks.
I think this week could be one of them, Um, but probably closer to an RV to role on the team around him.
I definitely think like talent, absolutely there.
I agree with you. It's not.
It's I don't think it's his fault.
Tell you what is Offensive line is done run blocking the third worst 3.
Line has blocked for the not good in comparison against Green Bay is number one at 5.
4 Giants or worse, they're 1.7.
That's more so the competition.
They have. Faith.
You're not killed by any.
You know what way? Let's go to wide receiver here.
There's some good ones available right now, and we should start with the first.
And I made of extreme Justin Jefferson for the Vikings.
He was finally released.
Gary Kubiak decided, Hey, we should probably put good players on the please guess what? He played well, 33 a half percent owned.
He's going to be a big part of the offense going forward.
Obviously, they have nobody else to pass to, other than Adam feeling Adam feeling runs deep, usually just covered because it's not a deep threat and Justin Jefferson could do that.
You of very possibly emerged as the number one weapon as season, uh, dwindles.
I think he's still learning a lot of things.
I mean, where we'll talk about this more so I guess, in at the end.
But Justin Jefferson has to be one of your guys is top pickups, right? What you saw, we consume.
Um, he's a in a struggling Vikings offense Right now.
He seems to be the guy giving them some energy.
You know, he might be the player that they're going to, you know, incorporate more to try to get the offense going a little bit.
Um, especially because, you know, he's got that big play ability he could take, you know, a bubble screen or a slant or something, and take to the house.
And I think that benefits Kirk cousins a lot.
So I don't see why.
Um, the Vikings coaching staff doesn't keep trying to, you know, get him involved with these weird bubble screen slants and then, you know, run that a couple times in the break him out with the corner post, you know? So I could definitely see Justin Jefferson still getting, you know, maybe not as many, obviously not as many targets is Adam dealing, but doing more with this targets and Adam Dylan would do with his targets, so I would definitely yeah, Justin, Justin Jefferson should be the number one receiver picked up this week.
Yeah, look, I like the way you put that about, like giving the team energy like while they're struggling right now.
I think that's actually very true, and I saw that he played a little more out wide this week.
He's mostly been playing in the slot, Um, so I was like, I'm kind of glad to see that.
And I think the formula for the Vikings isn't necessarily gonna work out this year.
Like normally, they are a defensive team that is going to run the ball.
But with the way their defense looks this year, it's looking like they're gonna have to rely on the passing game.
Or and I really think they're gonna need Justin Jefferson this season.
And I think he should be very involved going for forward.
And he is my top wide receiver ad this week as well into your coin.
I didn't realize there's this draft.
So Justin Jefferson started the season is a slot receiver.
I know and I think it was on a show with you.
Guys need to agreed.
I don't know why he should be the slot receiver and he's definitely built for the white outside role.
He played 31 slot snaps five wide B to 23 slot snaps to six wide.
Last week, completely reversed.
He played only six in the 45 out wide and destroyed.
So you would think Gary Kubiak makes a smart decision.
I guess Mike Zimmer and Gary Kubiak are essentially the same person, and they don't trust rookies.
But think they have to at this point, especially what they did for what he did last week.
I think there's more of that.
I'm gonna look up something else.
But while I do a Tanner, what's your thoughts on Alan Lazard as a pickup this week? 39% owned And ESPN Lee? Yeah.
So, um, with if Davante Adams is out, I mean, the way this Packers offense is flowing like he.
I mean, Aaron Rodgers loves him like he always talks him up, and he's bound to catch a deep ball like you saw in that game.
And he gets Atlanta on Monday Night Football, which is looking like one of the best matchups for wide receivers so far this season.
And even if Davante Adams does come back, I still like him in that game and I do just the way that Rogers looks so far this season, like the Packers were so run heavy last year.
But it's looking like it's gonna be a little different this year and like I don't love Lazard.
But I do like him, and I definitely think he's somebody that you can play, especially this week.
Yeah, I totally agree with that.
Um, 100% of Davante Adams out that Lazar needs to be your starting lineup.
Um, I think I follow Marquez eldest Scantlin on Twitter, and he tweeted out that devante average, uh, coverage is really something or something like that along those lines.
So it seems that teams, they're gonna be no lock. It'd on Marquez.
They'll just canceling more than Alan Lazard.
And I don't think there's a better quarterback to, you know, find who the best Corner is not covering than Aaron Rodgers is, and Album is are, you know, has shown flashes of greatness.
Those were Lions last year, and then it's our place good on primetime games as well.
Um, so if they want to, Adam's death is not your Ellen's art is that I think is a high end receiver to completely agree and said, I was looking at WAAS, wanted to see who blinks a lot, snaps for the pickings.
I wasn't sure if they moved anything back there more.
You play help more, but is mostly Chad BV.
I mean, even debut and what He's not fancy relevant by any means, but that just means they're keeping feeling on the outside.
Talking about Ellen's are, though.
Last week played off pretty much exactly at least what we talked about on the rankings show that on those arts, the guy that Rogers targets when he's under pressure seems that the first scene apply pressure.
And look at that.
He was found quite off.
I don't know how good Atlanta is at asked Rush otherwise other than Kinley.
If Rodgers gets eat on him again, I guess this week Penguins are goes off.
If he doesn't, I think it's probably more of a Velvet Scantlin game.
You guys know if what's his name? The rookie cornerback for the Falcon to God coach.
I think he's probably still out, right? I saw it.
Yeah, I think he still, but I saw two.
They just lost another cornerback.
Ty are or something.
Just tonight would be better not.
That's gonna be I'm scared.
This is This is the type of game packers losing.
I'm scared both.
Wide receiver should be awesome.
Wait, I It's one of those situations where I want to look at the wide receiver.
Opposing team to grade the wide receivers of this team.
Can't remember what happened to replicate.
Is Russell gauge out or is he back? You know, it was engaging Julio Jones.
Aaron, Julio is gonna be in.
For some reason, Julio is not out, or Julio is out.
I like the packers less because I think come off.
If who you engage your back Falcons.
We're gonna put a point.
Uh, Matt Ryan will probably pass all over the Packers, and Aaron Rodgers will need to stay aggressive.
Which is only good news for this Until your offense and obvious, um, looks like about the other wide receiver, I guess.
In that Monday night football game last week, Michael Thomas was outbreak on.
Smith continued to see lot of snaps.
I think he was the only wide receiver to play 100% of his team offensive snaps in Week three.
He's only 37 a half percent of leagues Michael Thomas is targeting.
We begin Lions to come back.
Let's assume he does.
Does frequent Smith have any value to you if Michael Times? You know, it was Yeah.
I saw the same thing.
Track Juan played on 100% of the snaps.
I actually think he was the only, uh, like skill player to play on 100% of the snaps this week, which was really surprising.
Um, I mean, even though he had sometimes pulling up his stat line right now, I don't think he was that like, Yeah, four catches for 42 yards and he played on that many snaps.
And Drew Brees is just dumping the ball off like left and right.
I mean, he's been doing it for a long time, but like that game was, I don't know how album Camera had the game that he did, because that's literally the entire offense.
And I was like, Why aren't the Packers? Why don't they just seem fine rolling out some guy, one guy, an album camera? Every play and camera is just gonna beat him and take it to the house.
I was going against camera, so I might be a little salty for that.
But, um, I trick one doesn't excite me too much.
Like I could definitely see a similar type of game happening again.
Um, like, like forecast for 42 yards and last On last week's episode, we said that if Michael Thomas was back, drop immensely for me and that that still applies.
I've been talking on this show.
We talk about trade on Smith a lot.
I've been talking about that.
He's one of those guys, you know, making maybe take one deep into the host.
I think I'm doing a complete 1 80 on him because Drew Brees does not throw deep balls unless they're down seven with 30 seconds left.
You know, I think they wanted, like, a whole drive against the Packers, where he threw four yard, uh, swing roads to at on camera the whole time.
So I don't think it's trick on Smith's fault.
There's value goes down, it's his quarterbacks fault, and I don't think I want anything to do with trade Con Smyth.
Even if Michael Thomas is out, that's fair.
Let's talk about a better quarterback in Nick Foles throwing to Anthony Miller, Onley owning 34% of leagues.
Now that Tariq Owen is also out for the Bears his season has done, Anthony Miller is going to be playing a little bit more and more snaps in the slot on the corner, playing up in the slack Quite often, I would assume Anthony Miller he's a pretty big jump in value with both of those things occurring for this week.
What you guys thoughts on Anthony Miller? Luke, I know you've probably seen decent amount of him.
Okay? Yeah, yeah, I'm just looking him up here.
And I think what I'm reading here is that his competition is with a with rookie Darnell money and I I can't say I've heard of money.
So I'm gonna guess that Miller is gonna be, you know, that second pass catcher on the team? Maybe third, because Jimmy Graham still there, But, um, time the thing, Yes, Anthony Miller will, probably his finished production will, I think will definitely go up.
Um, the thing that bothers me, though, is that Ellen Robinson had a huge game last week, and I don't know if Nick Foles is just gonna keep leaning on Allen Robinson rather than, you know, hit Miller.
Try to take a shot to Miller.
So definitely, you know, if Miller's their pick him up, he's gonna be the second pass catcher on the Bears with a Super Bowl M v p A quarterback.
But you know that lies in the fate of Are you really gonna expect the Bears to You don't have this high powered offense where they could get, you know, two receivers 100 yards each, and I definitely see you know Alan Robinson getting more of the catches than Anthony Miller.
So Anthony Miller is really tough for me because he's just so unpredictable.
Like, I don't know why these weeks don't happen for him or often, because, I mean, on paper, it looks great.
It's like he's number two receiver like Mac, Maggie's got this innovative offense.
Um, and it just for whatever reason, doesn't like, doesn't work out like I'll show up one game and then he will totally disappear.
Um, he had a really good stretch last year for like, five or six games where I want to say he was like a top 15 receiver.
So and the draft Capitals there, and I think he's a really talented player, so I don't know.
He's kind of just He's confusing for me.
With Nick Foles, a quarterback.
I actually think it's gonna be really interesting because I keep waiting for Miller to take that next step forward and kind of break out.
And if Nick Foles is a quarterback, I think that that could, uh, that could maybe happen.
Yeah, so I really do think you can become consistent legacy.
We saw a snaps last week.
He's pretty much was Sorious, while for at least 20 played 25 snaps in the slot, 24 the last week of tone injury played 43 snaps in the spot.
I think that's more of what we have seen going.
Yeah, obviously I really like him.
I think he's extremely talented.
I don't know why.
Maybe eighth, um and doesn't wanna play him more.
Think he's going to get the green light now kind of default, but I guess we will see Yeah, I really like him.
Another wide receiver that is getting pump up because of injuries now is at Pascal.
Uh, Pittman is now hurt.
Who's other ones Manchester Rodgers.
Who's the other hairs? Campbell.
She's hurt Jack Doyle.
So kind of getting back to full health as a pass catcher from colds.
Hilton hasn't looked amazing.
He looked pretty good guys in the first half last week, but he's still not going to be the go to guy for Philip Rivers.
Tesco owned in 1.
I think he definitely sees a pretty big jump in value.
Which plots on him? Yeah.
So, um, is it sorry? Is Pittman done? I think I saw Pittman was having surgery on his calf, and he's out until, like, at least week eight or nine.
Okay, so I don't know.
I I don't really trust Philip Rivers wide receiver to like with how involved the running backs on the passing game and the tight ends.
And I think it's more of a bump for t y Hilton than I'm necessarily interested in in Pascal.
Yeah, I 100% agree with you on that point.
Um, I think the last two weeks we've come on and talk about the number two receiver for the colts, and I think those two weeks that player that we mentioned has gotten injured.
So I don't think I hope exact best calls gonna break our curse here.
But you're right.
I think it definitely is a lot bigger bump that you, Hilton.
You know, I still think you I Hilton is You know, that Pro Bowl player.
He's a good receiver.
Um, this colts offenses not excited me.
Like I thought it was going to excite me.
You know, the passing game definitely doesn't excite me that much other than my oily cox, but, um, maybe and maybe he gets a bump to, Especially with Jack, with oil being out.
So I think the two of them are gonna be benefiting more than Paschal's.
Um, so yeah, maybe look at past scale, but I wouldn't be too competent on him.
I don't think Play doubles ap kit here, obviously passing offense look bad in week one against Jacksonville.
They didn't need to pass.
Is where the Vikings in the job.
So when they have to Passmore, I mean, there's going to be value here.
It just depends on who's going.
And if they don't bring somebody else in.
I think This is a great spot for Taylor. Gabriel to go.
I don't know why no one really called him up.
40 Niners who called him out? Yes, all right. Zach.
Pascal, At the very least, what I do like about him? Well, I don't think he's an amazing player by any means.
He is a pretty good blocker.
So the Colts were going to be run heavy.
He's at least going to be on.
You may fall into subjection here, playing the same game.
Okay, Sunday is Gratz, um, Barrios to I want it, but he's only 1.
5% of league again by default with injuries, He's getting a ton of work last two weeks, 10 catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns.
Same Donald doesn't really have much else to pass to.
We already know that the judge was going Thio show out on Thursday.
Is Adam Gays bring for revenge? Game Bronco is not an easy match up by any means.
If he has another one of these games, let's say he goes for 50 50 and a touchdown or something on Thursday.
Like seriously, So Luke just to kind of get ahead of the curb.
Where do you value somebody like this? Who is very clearly getting a bump in value.
You know, you're talking about injuries.
Um, games the crowded pyramid are both out for sure.
Or is that not known yet? Chairman is Crowder.
I think it's okay.
Because I was gonna say they were in them.
There is no use to me looking at various questionable.
Um, yeah, I think you definitely to look at Barrios, you know, being a, you know, a major pass catcher on NFL team Should you know, someone should always be looking at them.
Um, the problem is that he's on the Jets, who I think might lose to, um, the best high school team in the country.
Um Well, what a play.
The whole world would explode about the quarrels, man.
Was he even active last week? I'm so ****ed off.
They're like, Who's gonna start? Is it gonna get this guy or this guy? And it's not like the world give a **** guy, you know? It's the offense. I don't like.
I'm staying away from Barrios.
I don't think Donald's gonna be good.
I think Trevor Lawrence is gonna be behind center for them Week one next year.
Um, e don't to see much value because I just don't like the offense.
Yeah, I totally agree.
Usually, like when I start hearing Jets players, my mind sort of just shuts off.
And I'm like, I don't care.
Um, but it is kind of crazy how, like the fact that he's been a little like Zack, you were saying in a DFS showdown, like maybe he's in play this week.
I'm looking at the jet steps right? Right now they have Braxton Barrios, and Josh Malone is the only two healthy white decision, and the other one who might start is Chris Hogan, who's a deep threat who's going to get taken away.
But he's also questionable.
He's a deep threat who is not healthy.
We're going to pass.
I think someone like Chris Vernon probably gets taken benefit of this, but checks need to pass to somebody in Barrios is probably a lot for 78 targets this week brings a couple down, then go ahead, definitely doesn't need to be picked up You're only okay.
This is what you're only picking him up.
I think if you're going to play him, this isn't a guy that you need to pick up and keep underpants just in case.
But in, like, a 16 team or something, I think.
Well, worth start.
That's all I have for wide receivers.
Who else do you guys want? You know, um, I'm I'm interested in Tee Higgins.
Um, I mean, John Ross was was out in that game, but still, Tee Higgins played on 78% of snaps, which led the team.
And I loved him as a rookie dynasty pick like, I kind of saw him higher than a lot of other people did.
He was one of my favorite receivers in the draft, and I really feel like he is gonna be, like, a big future of this team, and him and Joe Burrow is gonna grow together.
And the fact that he's kind of showed out the last two weeks, Uh, and he looks good, like, um, and the Bangles air, throwing the ball so much.
Like, I think Higgins is a guy that is only gonna get better as the season progress is I completely agree.
Here's my question to you.
Assuming John Ross is over, would you rather start Tee Higgins or a J.
I feel like if this was actually my team, I think I would probably start Higgins.
But, like the good advice part of me wants to say, go ahead and roll with a J.
Green has seen a bunch of targets and a bunch of air yards and maybe a J.
Green turns it around this week, but, um, that that's a tough one.
Uh, if it was my line up, I think I would throw Higgins in there, though.
Do you have any thoughts on that? Um, I you know, I think I'm along with a J. Green as well.
Just because I feel like you know more what you're gonna get out A. J.
Green. You know more what you're gonna get a tee Higgins.
The thing I like.
What Deacon So is, um, I feel like, you know, when you have a rookie quarterback in the rookie receiver, they tend to develop a lot of chemistry.
I don't know if that is, they talk together, have lockers next to each other, you know, stayed together in training camp or whatever, but I think that could be a case here because we've been talking about Tee Higgins.
You know, maybe taking over for a J. Green.
The Bengals has decided to move on for a J. Green.
Um, so I like Higgins, you know, maybe not for this week, but maybe it's like a stash and see if you have, you know, a good second half of the year and playing Jacksonville.
Please are I'm fine if you play Tee Higgins as your wife to see for three.
I have zero problems with that, and I would like him over age.
I think he's looked better than a do you last week.
Go ahead was not to overreact.
The one game right few Higgins nine, targets A. J.
Green six last week.
And even if you assume a J.
Green's targets come up just with the amount of that Burrows passing, I think both can pretty much middle out at a targets per game.
I think that's fair and obviously kind of boys working a slot.
He's the number one, but think like see Higgins more than nature's green recipes.
One million s o.
I feel like my two favorite, like Justin Jefferson and Tee Higgins, I think are both really solid pickups this week.
Both rookie receivers is there.
What do you guys see? Is like in the realm of possibility that Tee Higgins is the better pick up over Jefferson this week and might be the better option going forward.
Like, would you guys consider that at all? Yeah, um, I would consider him as a better start this week.
I think that's fair.
I just think role Justin Jefferson has to be the bigger part of their offense going forward.
Um, yeah, I agree.
Who does Minnesota play this week? I don't know.
If the top my head, um, could tell you.
Oh, they play, they play.
Houston, come back.
I feel like the both have good matchups this week.
Yeah, I think maybe ta gins.
You know, because you're talking about I know Zach.
Just going to your point.
Sainty Higgins is just that he had more targets in a J. Green last week.
You know, you might become that number two pass catcher of A J.
Green continues Thio you know, not be a J.
Green of 34 years ago.
Um, but I still like Jefferson just for the just for the point of, you know, Minnesota trying something new on offense.
And, uh, it's almost a must win game for them this week.
You know, you rather be one and three than a 14 especially in a tough division for Minnesota.
So I mean, I think the rollout Jefferson, you know, give him the ball a little bit more than Tee Higgins will get the ball.
Minnesota goes on for I mean, for sure.
Panic button gets hit.
They almost have to start selling something.
Obviously, Jefferson's going other.
I don't know how they wouldn't try to trade someone like Kyle Route offer something.
Yeah, they lose this week.
Which, by the way, I think they do.
I think accents when and avoid one for themselves.
Um, or the other.
Why do you see Rice skipped over? Not Frank or in the mining thing? Uh, courtesy annual.
I saw a big uptick in production this week and perhaps, and targets, and you can pretty much correlate that, I think with Christian McCaffrey being out, someone needed to pick up production.
Obviously, Mike Davis had himself a good week, but Curtis Samuel had 14.
3% of the target, not 100% sure what that is.
But he played roughly two thirds.
He's going to be targeted and, obviously the Panthers.
Why? To pass the ball a lot.
You want to pass the ball a lot before they want to pass the ball even more with Chris McCaffrey out, I think.
Curtis Samuel While he's I think Curtis Samuel is very clearly the number three wide receiver behind, uh, Anderson More right.
Think he kind of fell into relevance.
Now, what do you guys think about him? Um, Chris, Daniel seems like the player that they're gonna stick in at least to me, that they're gonna stick in for Chris McCaffrey to be like that gadget player.
You know, run them, you know, run him out of the backfield, throw swing swing roads to him through screens to him.
Um, yeah, I definitely think that anyone on the Panthers offense, you know, maybe other than Mike Davis, who saw an uptick, is Curtis Samuel because he's gonna get on the field a lot more just because he's a player, you know, you can basically line him up anywhere, and you know, they're going to try to get the ball to him just because he, him and him with the ball is kind of dangerous, an open field.
So I think, um, you know, roster Curtis Samuel.
I don't see him having, you know, a huge impact right away, but I think he might be the guy that they used to set up big place, If that makes sense, yeah, I agree with that.
And I like that they're making a concerted effort to get him the ball on the ground.
And he had seven touches this week, and I'm sorry.
Eight touches this week and I think that's the issue.
I I really don't see him getting many more than like, I feel like 10 touches, maybe his cap.
So I feel like it's gonna come down to him making that big play.
But I do think he's a really talented player and somebody that's definitely capable of pulling off that big play.
I think that's just gonna be, ah, hard thing to predict.
That's fair and by no means to see a lot.
I do think that matchup shapes up pretty well against Arizona.
Our pretty much college teams in terms of how they run their on Arizona, wants to go really fast.
Either Arizona is gonna have a bunch of really fast reaching out or put up a lot of points, and I would assume there's a lot of points in this game.
Arizona's defense, by no means scares me.
Detroit did them last week.
So I think Curtis Samuels, At the very least way.
I don't have e have a I have about as much confidence in him as I would any third.
Wider How, um, any other wide receivers you guys wanna talk about before we go too tight ends? Um, the only one that come out from, uh, that's because we call Hartmann any thoughts on him at all.
I think I was matchup.
I should look at a Sammy walk and snaps after and destroyed in the head three or two.
Yeah, I just think that's how you with this lottery.
I think he's fine.
I think he's going to have a better year.
Then he was on track for over a week, went through you guys.
If you're going against a guy that, like you think is going to score a lot of points that week, um, like you're going to get from the top guys in the league.
He's somebody that I'd like to throw in a flex spot, potentially just give you like a little nitro there.
And he's He's a threat every week to do what he did last week.
As a receiver, he gets some carries and obviously as a returner really allows for that.
Let's Ggo to get ends here.
There's actually a few to touch on that had relevance.
Obviously, let's start with Dalton Schultz for the Cowboys after Blake, Geralyn went down blessing in disguise for fantasy owners because I think Donald Trump Claire, 13 catches, 136 yards and one touchdown.
Over the past two games, we already talked about how Dak Prescott has attempted the most passes in the league and assuming that continues with how bad beat look, do you have any confidence in Okay, let's let's do this because for all these Tatum's, they didn't talkto, you know, value.
We've already talked about that.
There hasn't been a ton of tight end injuries.
I think we should talk about who you would rather have. Dolphin Schultz.
Think that means the most sense? I think I should disturb Mary.
Maybe a 24% of leagues.
He's probably out there.
You Would you rather both of you.
But, sir, with Luke, would you rather have Dalton Schultz over somebody like Eric Ebron? Um, I don't think so.
And I think, you know, just because once once again, I know Dak Prescott is attempting the most that that was said he was tempted most passes.
I'm still gonna go back to that point that there's still a Marquis Cooper on the field.
Michael Gallup on the field CD lamb on the field, Ezekiel Elliott on the field.
So I think those votes is, you know, locked into that fifth option.
And is that a player that you want to start in one of your fantasy lineups over Eric Ebron.
Who? I don't know Deonte Johnson status this week.
So if he's also definitely take Ebron over him, But I think I still think that the potential is there Mawr with Ben Roethlisberger throwing to Eric Ebron than Dak Prescott throwing adult Schultz.
I guess if you're making me choose between those two guys, I think I would probably take Schultz there.
But like Luke, like you said, he's kind of locked in.
Is this fifth option? So I think when you throw Schultz in your lineup, you're throwing a guy in your lineup with really no ceiling.
Um, and I do think Eric Ebron is more capable of catching the ball on doing more with it, but with how much? The Cowboys were throwing the ball and the tight end is involved so far, like he's guaranteed to get like a certain baseline of points.
But if he doesn't roll in the end zone, it's gonna I think it's gonna look like what you saw this week.
I think this value is definitely higher on PPR because of these targets.
I also don't think he's the fish Michael Gal.
You have all these extremely athletic wide receivers, time the Cowboys and there's no scouting that.
We're kind of all the same thing.
They're pretty much all like guys that can stretch the field and that's great.
But they need someone who can play underneath, and they would have really benefited from having Randall Cobb there to be completely honest right now, that underneath guy kind of his own Schultz and he's just soaking up those targets.
That could mean law upside in terms of yards and touchdowns and stuff like that.
But I think part there, the, um, But I'm gonna comparing toe one workers.
I think this one's interesting because named values, certainly there would you rather have Dalton Schultz or Austin Hooper or Austin Hooper? Yeah, yeah, why, um, just it's been a slow start for Hooper that, you know, if you got hurt in that game, I thought I saw that I could look it up when you talk.
Okay, Um, I just I man, I think he's I think he's more talented, and I still think the fans keep wants to utilize the tight end spot there, and I think that he's going to turn around a little bit.
No injury for him compared Brown's offense, the Vikings offense last year.
Often Hooper's Kyle Rudolph, I think, to a T, but he's the blocking tight end.
I think Hamilton is Herb Smith.
What do you think about that kind of comparison.
Yeah, yeah, I think so.
Um, I think the reason I think Austin overtakes, you know, I think we've seen it already.
He's taking such a down step.
Is Atlanta's offense is just better than Cleveland's offense? Um, yeah.
So I don't like Austin Hooper.
I don't think, um, I know the matchup with Dallas this week is good for tight ends.
I think I read here that they're giving up 16.
5 fantasy PPR points too tight ends this year.
So, you know, if you need a streamer, I think Austin Hooper for sure.
Um, I just don't think he's that, you know, good of a player.
Honestly, I think he's a better run blocker.
Like he said that he has a pass catcher.
Um, so between him and Schultz, and I think just I know that both have good matchups.
I think you know, going off just on PPR.
I've taken Schultz now that you brought up that somebody's toe run the underneath route for the cowboys.
So I'll take Schultz in this scenario.
Yeah, I like that point to actually, uh, about them all being fueled stretchers.
And he kind of is the underneath that the underneath guy there? Yeah, just kind of a default.
We saw Jason Witten do that a little bit.
Last year's well, and, you know, three years ago, I suppose targets last two games were tell themselves to 10 and six prosecutors for four.
Austin Hooper pretty much split snaps with Harrison Bryant last game.
54 to Hooper, 42.
Bryant Cooper and 20 route on his for snapped.
He even past Black four times ran block 30 times in the game.
I mean, he has upside, and I think here's the problem.
Okay, So last year, Hooper was fantastic for fantasy and stuff.
He was the red zone guy for Atlanta in the red zone.
Guy for Cleveland is Nick Chubb.
I think that touchdown upside is down, and if the touchdown upside down, I just don't really like I don no matter who it is.
All right, I I have zero problem dropping Austin Hooper for any of the tight ends with.
I don't need to play around next one.
We already mentioned in the eventually a couple Moheli **** hit me down.
Here's Campbell down morally.
Cox had 100 yard performance of two last week.
Jack Doyle, I believed, played, but he was limited.
Still, he had 50 yards and a touchdown again in a game that, really the Colts were trying in the passing game for, like a quarter.
And that's about it.
Um, he's athletic tight end.
I think he has to be youth.
If it's not Pascal, it's him.
Um, are you valuing him and are more than Dalton Schultz? Where is he? Second, I mean, yeah, I actually do like him more than Schultz.
I think he's super athletic and with the injuries Thio Pittman in Paris.
Campbell uh, like he's the He's the guy that I see getting a bigger bump versus Pascal and he's come through with two solid weeks s so far, and I like I like him going forward, and I feel like I hit this point way too often.
Like, but Philip Rivers likes third of the tight end.
Um, hopefully, I won't have to bring up that that point again.
Uh, very so overdone it.
But yeah, I just I like the I like the way he looks.
Hey, really passes the eye test for me, and, um, I think he's gonna get, like, a decent amount of looks every week.
And like you said, they didn't even have to play against the Jets for, like, half a game.
So yeah, I I like well, like Cox to just for the fact that those receivers air out.
I think he definitely took a boost.
Their, um the touchdowns air. Awesome.
I think I don't see the touch on stopping because Philip er is, You know, I think I said it's every week to made a career for Antonio Gates for scoring touchdowns.
So I think that morally Cox is still, you know, still better than Donald Shultz.
As long as Jack Doyle still, as isn't as involved as we thought he'd be at the beginning of the season.
I'm trying to figure out exactly where I can find the staring Now, here we go.
I'm gonna look up how often the colts around two tight ends season.
They run Iran just on that.
At least 30% of the time of the Yeah, I guess it's not as much as I thought as I expected.
I got 32 snap stuff, Miley **** five oil.
Got art on this is the thing that's concerning now that I look at the numbers for him.
He ran his eight routes the entire game.
I need to go back and watch this game to see when he ran those eight, right? If he was involved early.
Well, if he was involved, the second half don't think I care.
So I guess to be determined how? How's that for a good ****ysis on that? You need to do your waiver claims, I guess.
Um, that's that alone against.
It was you convinced me, actually, earlier, Jim Graham owned 17%.
We're talking a I guess it was The rankings show Luke last week.
I'm like, I have Jimmy Graham, 10 spots higher than the consensus, and I don't like it, but I don't know who had put him below.
Uh, because he had six sketches, 60 yards, two touchdowns on nine targets.
Has 18 targets on the season.
I would assume his production picks up with Nick Foles.
Obviously, Nick Foles is no stranger of utilizing titans.
No, after it's time Adelphia Ah, year, Jimmy Graham lover.
I wasn't a hater, by the way.
When he is in Green Bay, I think he ran like he got his knees shot off in a war or something.
That's about, um what's your thoughts on Jimmy Graham going forward? It's hot.
Well, guy with fools do you think are not quite yet.
I for sure think so.
Um, I think what we saw last week is what I mean, maybe not the two touchdowns, but the six receptions for 60 yards, I think is might be, you know, his consistency throughout the rest of the year.
Um, I know one play.
I think Washington Chicago is on the goal line and they threw split Jimmy.
Grandma widened through the federal to him, and I was yelling, Why didn't the package do that all last year when they're on the one yard line? So I right now I think I'm in a lot of my leagues. I am.
I have Jimmy Graham on Picket, currently slaughtered in to pick up on the waiver wire because I think Nick Foles is just a better quarterback.
The mystery whiskey.
Um, Nick Foles can't get the ball.
Uh, Nick Foles can get the ball to, um to his players, And I think Jimmy Graham, still, you know, he's getting old, but I still think he has the capability to go up and make some contested catches.
Um, you know, he's not gonna while you with any long runs or anything, but he can get those, you know, six catches for 50 yards and maybe a touchdown consistently.
Look, I agree with everything you said there.
Um I mean, he came out and weak one, and he had seven targets, so it kind of just right out the gate.
They just started utilizing him, and he only had one target in week two.
But then he came out and had the week he had last week.
And I really like to see that the Golan utilization like, it's nice to know that they're just gonna be looking looking for him there and, like, I think he's somebody that can get it done for you.
Hey, is on the field for 44 of the 57 passing plays last week, which obviously great thing.
We know he's not a good run blocker.
So if somehow they got a big lead, that would assume he has a reduced role.
But that's also something I don't see.
The bears getting that often the Bears teams not really great, even though they were my NFC North pic right back in March when I left it.
And I guess But, um yeah, and everything we said about Anthony Miller getting more production because of Notary Cohen and also because close that quarterback.
I think we can just pretty much transfer that to Jimmy Graham.
And so well, yeah, goal line.
We saw him like you said, Nice paid route.
He had two touchdown.
He's a great great red zone threat.
Also, I don't think this offensive line is good enough for them to be pounding the rock on the goal line.
You know, don't think Montgomery is ready for that type of not right.
I just don't think he's meant for that type of role either, so we could see a lot of passing in the red zone.
Alright, I'll pull those red zone snap stats tonight.
Yes, right, I think.
Jimmy Graham, I'm not ready to put on top 12 like, is it every week, guy, But you should be respected last night, and I have here on the 27% of leagues.
Logan COMMENT Production hasn't been great.
He's been targeted, the third most of any tight end in the league.
24 targets, three weeks.
I mean, targets is opportunity.
Opportunity leads to productivity.
If he's going to continue to see targets, he's at least safe.
You need a stream or something like that.
Any point, you know he's going to.
At least it looks.
And if they find themselves in the red zone, is going to be the guy down there.
They don't really have strong goal line.
That had beaten Barber so that you don't have a big wide receiver.
I mean, it's him.
And if they do make a switch at quarterback, which they somewhat hinted to this week away from Dwayne Haskins, Great for everyone involved.
And I think it would be especially great for Logan.
Is he more of just a guy, too? You know, maybe star as a free agent in case you need a quick, tight and pick up.
Or is he Some of you actually want to at your team.
I think the the first way you said it is kind of exactly how I'm looking at it.
He's kind of just a guy.
I'm paying attention to And if I do need to start, it's nice that he's getting the targets and he's getting involved.
But ultimately, like with the quarterback play there, it's it's not that inspiring.
And maybe they do make that change, like you said, and there's just a lot of uncer*****y there, and it's not something I'm very confident in.
But I do really like the targets.
Yeah, um, with the Wayne had if Dwayne Haskins does take at the quarterback position, Um, you know, he's not that great of a thrower of the football, But I think Logan Thomas is, you know, athletic enough, a good enough football player to make some of those catches that need to be made when joint task is the story of the ball.
And maybe some of those come down on the goal line, you know, on fade roots or whatever.
So I think there is definitely some value with Logan.
Um, I was all I was high on him coming into the year.
Um, yeah, you're right, though a quarterback's which is only going to get him more, um, more production rather than more targets.
I guess more production and more targets is what what I mean? Yeah, there's for sure going to be a week at some point, you know? Good luck guessing what it is, but he's going to have a multi some weeks just because of all these targets.
And if they find themselves in the red zone, they're just gonna.
But to him, big athletic guy s.
So I guess if he's out there on papers or something and he has a big game and he gets stolen, I'm willing to risk that.
Okay? Because I don't think that's going to happen twice in a row.
Any other tight end you guys wanna talk about? Are any of the Packers tight ends worth relevance? No.
Just because of snaps.
I like Robert Tanyon a lot.
I think he's just stuff Jay Stern.
Burger less so right.
I think I think they're probably good for a couple catches per game, but, um, pushing off.
He's been working on that bench.
I saw that I was kind of interested in Drew sample this week.
Um, I actually thought he could come out and maybe have a big game after getting like 10 targets after coming in once Usama got hurt.
Um I want to see him in another week.
But, like, I was kind of just disappointed.
I was hoping he was going to come through completely.
He wasn't even targeted.
So if he starts getting targets, I don't know.
Who would he left? I don't know what would happen there.
You would think Burrow would throw it on.
No, I got a question for you.
This is not really a fantasy question.
Where did Tyler Eifert end up on Jacksonville? He caught a touchdown either in week one or two.
Anything else you guys want to touch on for our for these drops? Um, did you guys see? Uh, the Giant has absolutely beat the crap of Jordan Reed.
Last week, I was all high in Jordan Reed coming in, and it just looked like their head hunting them all week.
And so I mean, that's up to you.
And I started to pick up and start of the week.
Um, but after watching the Giants have the bounty gate on him last week could kind of hurt seed seen him, and I are now it's just a matter of time, but yeah, I guess they didn't need to put into action.
It probably would have happened by mhm I didn't want that is not the game turned on, Believe it or not, eso if we had to pick our top every or whatever, we're trying to rank or pick up facility.
Obviously, it changes depending on positional need for your specific team.
But Tanner, who are your top three pickups? Just sort of, in fact.
So for me, like I feel like last week, it was probably the running backs that were really exciting.
But it's this week.
It's the wide receivers for me.
And I would say, like in their own tear is we'll probably in his own tears, Justin Jefferson.
But then a step down from that would be Tee Higgins.
Um, I just like we talked about both guys a lot, but I think Justin Jefferson is going to be really needed for that team, and they're going to target him a lot.
And I think he's gonna have all the opportunity that he can handle as a rookie wide receiver and tee Higgins with how much the Bangles air throwing the ball.
He's like, I really liked what I saw from them last week Got the nine targets, um, played on the most snaps on the team.
Eso it's really Jefferson and Higgins for me.
And then, um, at the running back position, I kind of like Jeff Wilson for specifically for this week, if you need.
If you need a spot start, and I would definitely maybe sorry.
Adding 1/4 guy, uh, it would It's I think Birkhead is a really nice pickup just to see what happens with James White.
Um, because you kind of touched on receivers there.
I'll kind of go to run back a little bit.
I mean, we talked a lot about Adrian Peterson.
I don't think he's a bad pick up to have, you know, just I think, just for the 22 carries last week.
And then, um, the other one waas I mean, I know I brought up Geo Bernard, maybe keep an eye on him, but my number one definitely is just Jefferson the receiver.
And then if I threw a tight end, there would be swayed me.
I mean, Justin Jefferson, my number one as well.
He's the only guy can see out of everyone we touched on that end up being in every week started for you going to my number two just because I'm for sure going to be doing it, and I It's a short term ad.
But I really like Carlos Hyde, especially against indulgences, right? We only get one week of him being the lead back. I think that's fine.
We get to that even better.
I'm not sure that played with five, but I think Carlos Hyde needs to be on your radar and then I'm still I think he, Higgins and Anthony Miller go hand in hand for me.
Think I prefer Anthony Miller? I just really It may just be because I believe he's e think he's a great talent.
He just needs to be involved in this Bears offense for them, have any kind of hands.
I guess toe compete for this division.
Luke by any means don't think he I guess that I would rather have him rest of season or a J Green which restricted kind what our Beijing, that's all we got.
We will be back tomorrow.
Breaking down some early week for fantasy football rankings again, if you go to the chat.
We have to new stats on 20 sports right now.
Breaking down the running back snap count and what receiver targets and snaps for read.
This is definitely a great thing to use to project usage project value going forward, especially for do your best.
You could spend a lot of really nice like streamers and darlings and cause of that data.
So definitely go check that out and we will be adding more there and we will be back tomorrow.
Later, guys, these guys.
