G s fantasy football show with Dan Major End Use The X's and O's of all things fantasy e o Worldwide Sports Radio Network Welcome back activation to the show.
As always, I'm your host and major, we are E. M.
D s fancy football show, and we're gonna be talking about a lot of things today because we're not gonna be around tomorrow.
Yes, that's right.
Usually 12 to 1.
30 on both Fridays and Thursdays like today.
But we're not gonna be around tomorrow because we are.
I am celebrating my anniversary with my lovely wife of three years, so we're gonna be doing that instead this weekend.
But remember, you can always contact me on social Media at Billy up MDF, then show we're gonna help you out along the way.
But that means we have two shows of content to get through today's episode.
So we have ah, lot.
We gotta unpack because we're previewing all the week five matchups going over the injury ports.
What we expect for the weekend is who's going to play? And of course, you're gonna have to stay with us on Twitter because you're gonna have to stay up to date because we're going to not be around again until Sunday.
We'll be talking to you throughout the weekend, so make sure you're following along.
Make sure staying up to date because we have a lot of news coming out, right co vid this morning.
Tennessee Titans have another player who tested positive today, and from what we're told, because the Buffalo Bills have to play on Thursday, they don't know what they're going to do is faras We're scheduling purposes.
They pretty much they can't so Either this game gets canceled altogether or they're going to find some way to magically play.
And I don't know how that's going to happen at this point, being that players on the Titans continue.
This has positive new ones we're going to see with how that's going to impact.
The good news is, as far as that aspect is concerned, that the Patriots and the Chiefs did not have any new positive test.
So that is the good news there.
After the scare from yesterday, we had to find Gilmore suddenly test positive.
It sounds like they didn't have any more positive test.
If the Patriots do not have any positive tests again, they may practice, uh, tomorrow.
So they may be back in their facility cause they're still not today.
They The team made a decision after yesterday.
They were not gonna be back yesterday.
They were not gonna be back.
So maybe Friday they will be able to actually get in the building and possibly practice.
So those are the curve balls being thrown our way this week as far as our fancy football lineups and hopefully last week.
Especially if you have Titans players you kind of already prepared yourself for this, knowing that this game was going to be in jeopardy if they continued to test positive.
So hopefully this is able to correct itself.
Hopefully, there is able to be a game plan moving forward.
But for your fantasy football purposes, this is exactly why you have to have debt.
This is why you have to be hitting the waiver wire.
That's why you have to be open to making trades, because you're going to have to be able to finagle and manage a star double team.
That's not gonna get you killed every week.
That's what we're here for, that we're gonna talk about.
So we're here on the worldwide sports radio network.
W W S R N were also here, of course, at Belly Up N.
D F F show and presented to you by belly up sports.
And you could always watch this show listen to us or follow us on social media.
If you download the worldwide sports radio network app on Android or if you download it on IOS W W s r ed, let's go ahead and get right into this Thursday night match because like I said, we have to preview all of these games for you guys said to make sure everybody is off on the right foot and starting off with Tampa Bay.
The injury list for these guys is insane.
I mean, you have letter for Net, who's still technically a game time decision.
As of you know, this broadcast going live here a 12 o'clock.
But he's still kind of listed Mawr as doubtful than anything else.
We have Mike Evans, who is going to be a game time decision now.
He was able to play on Sunday, but he is still hindered.
He was still laboring.
He is not close to 100%.
He was not able to practice it all again today, and they said they were going to give him a pregame workout to determine if he can actually play the other player, Scotty Miller.
He is listed as questionable.
However, He is the Onley player that played in last week's game and the only start herbal player that is confirmed as being somebody who is a confident that they're going to be.
He's going to be playing that they're confident he will be out there and playing today.
So that's the only positive.
Scotty Miller might be out there on an island all by himself after today.
Today's game because Justin Watson's out.
Howard gone for the season Now, after the Achilles injury on Sunday, Chris Godwin is going to miss this week.
We expected to be back next week, though.
That's the good news on Chris Godwin.
LaShawn McCoy is gonna be out.
So you're looking at a possibility of Ronald Jones and Scotty Miller and not much else, especially Mike Evans.
We are expecting Mike Evans to gut it out, and if he does play, you have to play them.
We have a wide receiver, 25.
So we have at that low end, wide receiver to territory because of his injuries.
But he proved to you last week.
He still went over 100 yards.
He still got you a touchdown, even though he wasn't 100% then.
And against Chicago. Baird.
It's not a great matchup is also not a matchup that scares you in any capacity, so you have to go ahead and fire up Mike Evans if he plays.
Be make sure you are watching that injury port all the way up until game time because he's sounding more questionable, more of a game time decision than we were anticipating that that being Ronald Jones, you have to play him.
Even if Leonard Fernet does play.
Even if Lenin Fernet is active, I don't know how much of a workload he could really receive Now.
There's a caveat with Ronald Jones because it was clear after last week that while he looks good running the football on 1st and 2nd down, Brady wanted him out of the game.
When it came to catching the ball, he had three horrible drops.
He missed a pass protection again, and Brady gave a glaring stare to the to the sideline after that last drop and it was just looked over. Bruce.
Areas like you got anybody else and they did.
They brought up Keyshawn von the rookie, the guy I was really big on before they went ahead and signed letter for net and signed LaShawn McCoy.
He comes in here, gets the receiving touchdown.
Now I'm not picking up Keyshawn von because as soon as letter for nets back soon, LaShawn McCoy is back.
He goes back way to down far the depth chart.
But the point is made that Ronald Jones is on an incredibly short leaves right now.
And like I said this week, he kind of gets away with it because just by default, he's the only one left healthy in that backfield.
But don't be surprised if you see Keyshawn von getting some work in the passing game this week.
And don't be surprised if next becomes and letter for net is the guy moving forward.
It's going to happen sooner rather than later.
We all know we're getting out of Ronald Jones at this point, and it's clear to me that Brady was ready to move on.
So something to kind of keep in mind there If you have, if you have Leonard Fernet.
If you have Ronald Jones, I would be trying to sell him high before this game.
There's people out there who had also Meckler Nick Chubb.
Maybe they're looking at the possibility of not having Derrick Henry again with the positive covert tests for this game.
Maybe they have Devin Singletary.
May they say Chris McCaffrey.
The list goes on and on it running back.
There's a lot of famous football teams are weekend running back.
You're going into this game knowing that Ronald Jones probably in line to get a good amount of work.
Now, this is when you trade him.
Trade him now because I'm telling you right now, after this week, I don't know how much value he's gonna have left.
So we move on to the Chicago side of the ball.
You start Alan Robinson and does it.
Listen, David Montgomery is getting a workload.
And yes, he has to be considered in the Flex because you may not have a better option.
But the problem right now with David Montgomery is that he's not playing well.
That offensive line is not blocking well.
Oh, and by the way, this is one of the worst matchups a running back could possibly get here with Tampa Bay.
So I am not going to feel good if you're in a position where you have to start David Montgomery tonight and if you could avoid it, I would now rank wise.
I have him in that high NRB three territory, the Flex territories, because of volume and frankly, who's left in the position going into this week.
Remember, we got two teams on Bye on top of it.
Detroit in Green Bay, so I'm not feeling good about it.
You may not have a better option, but I wouldn't expect much out of David Montgomery in this game.
So the only person I'm playing with any kind of confidence is Alan Robinson.
The thing toe watching this game from an overall perspective will be Nick Foles.
What we're gonna do the quarterback position? Because he played horrible, too.
And, frankly, there, at least they could make the argument that they are undefeated when Mitchell Robiskie has started.
He's not good, either.
You have to crappy quarterbacks, and we know this.
You've been listening to show you you've known this before going into the season two crappy quarterback.
So it's gonna be interesting to see a lot of people said they can't go back to Mr Drobinski.
After benching him, Nick Foles continued to play like he has, and I don't see how this game is gonna be any better for him.
With the aggressive, blitzing style of Todd Bowles and Tampa Bay.
I think he's gonna be under duress.
It's not gonna look very good.
They might have Thio.
It just might be a quarterback carousel this entire year until Matt Nagy gets fired.
Which is what's going to happen if this team doesn't make the playoffs and they're not looking like they're going thio with this kind of quarterback play.
So that's going to something kind of watch moving forward.
If you're in Allen Robinson, owner, you want nothing Mawr than Nick Falls to find a way to hold onto this job, and that's where the fantasy ****ysis comes in.
You need Nick Foles hold onto the job because the one thing about Nick Foles while he's not a very good NFL quarterback, he knows how to get his number one wide receiver the ball and get it to him often.
We've seen this over the past two weeks since he's taken over.
Mrs. Robiskie doesn't he's not accurate enough.
He doesn't throw Allen Robinson the ball down the field.
He doesn't throw him enough 50 50 chances, because if he doesn't see a receiver come open, he has no anticipation.
So he doesn't see a receiver come open.
He doesn't throw it to him.
Alan Robinson's a guy.
He's not going to get a crazy amount of separation.
That's not his game.
His game is the win at the point of attack.
His game is the win in traffic.
So if you're in Allen Robinson owner, you need Nick Foles to stay in position.
If they switch back to Middle Robiskie either tonight's game or next week, you're going to have to sell high on Allen Robinson moving forward.
So just kind of something to watch their if you are Robinson owner.
So we're gonna move on kind of streamlining this, and we're gonna go to the Atlanta Carolina game.
Our first one o'clock game on Sunday.
Carolina Chris McCaffery.
He's still, you know this week he's still in IR.
There is some tone, some energy out there.
Some hope that Christian McCaffrey may make a return next week when he's eligible to come off the I R.
Now that would still be beating the original timeline by a few weeks, so it's still gonna be highly questionable.
And so I'm not telling you toe drop by Davis or anything like that.
But what I will say is this on the off chance that wants it being true.
If you own my Davis and you don't own Christian McCaffrey, this is the week before Sunday to sell high on him.
First of all, is a great matchup against Atlanta, so people are going to want him.
We just talked about selling on Ronald Jones because we know he's on a short leash and his fantasy values on a short leash.
And people are desperate running back.
Well, you'll be able to get a prettier penny for Mike Davis, even if he only has, ah, week or two left before Christian McCaffrey comes back.
This is the time to sell on him.
If somebody's going to offer you a player who has long term fantasy value right now for Mike Davis, and it's a mid level RB two or a mid level wide receiver to the rest of the way, you pull the trigger on that deal.
If you can get a Kenyan Drake, who's somebody we've talked about on the show is a buy low candidate for a Mike Davis.
You pull the trigger on that deal.
Those were things to be looking out for.
If you do not own Chris McCaffrey, if you do on Chris McCaffrey.
I'm staying with Mike Davis because even when McCaffrey comes back, you need to see a C 100%.
Or did he rush back? Be high ankle sprains.
They can be reaggravated.
So I'm gonna be holding on to Mike Davis to protect my Christian McCaffrey investment if I own him.
But if you don't get what you can get for Mike Davis, while you can still get something very valuable because he's playing against Atlanta this week and he still might have, you could make the argument.
Still might have 2 to 3 more weeks, possibly for McCaffrey, actually does come back.
But do it now before we suddenly find out.
Oh, McCaffrey from magically comes back next week, which I just wouldn't put it past them to kind of keep that in mind for your fantasy lamps.
As this game goes, though, playing all your Carolina Panthers talk about another guy that you might wanna be selling high on after this week, not going into this week with like we do with Mike Davis.
But after this week, you're gonna want to sell high on D. J. Moore.
I've talked about this extensively that Robby Anderson is the receiver that you want to own in Carolina.
He is the wide receiver to D.
Moore is going to be a wide receiver, three, possibly wide receiver for the rest of the way here, that's what you're kind of looking at.
So against in this game against Atlanta, if he wanted him having a decent game, which he should, because he has been seeing enough target volume, you're gonna want to go ahead and sell high on that production because between his name and having a good game against Atlanta, a lot of people will say like, Oh, they might look at it like, Oh, maybe this is a turning point if you get your hands on a wide receiver to or an RB two for D.
J Moore the rest of the way, you pulled the trigger on that deal after this week.
I think you're gonna need the production from this week, and I think there's a decent chance you're going to get it, because the matchup.
So you pull the trigger going into Week six on a deal like that, and you sell high on D.
J. Moore because Robby Anderson is the guy to own.
Robby Anderson is gonna be in our top 10 of wide receivers this upcoming week, and I don't think that should surprise anybody.
We know he has big play capability.
We know him and Teddy Bridgewater clearly have.
Ah, great report.
He's beginning an insane amount of targets.
He's in the top 10 and targets in the league, and it's against Atlanta.
Who has nobody left on defense healthy or even if they were, Let's face it, they weren't that good to begin with.
So, yeah, I'm fine.
Robby Anderson is going to be a wide receiver one this week, and Teddy Bridgewater is our number one streaming quarterback on the week we have him is a Q B one.
I have him at number six overall at the quarterback position.
He's been playing very solid football.
He's been He's had a high floor so far for fantasy purposes.
He gets this matchup against Atlanta, where the offense is clicking for Teddy Bridgewater, the Carolina Panthers right now, one where Robby Anderson and D.
Moore should be able to get open on with some consistency.
Mike Davis has been playing well, especially in the past catching game.
Teddy Bridgewater is going to be able to play within himself and still go for 300 yards and two touchdowns minimum in this matchup.
So we love to the Bridgewater.
He is our number one streaming quarterback on the weak and a must play in our eyes.
Obviously, if you have them, you don't trade him. You're playing him.
He's an R B two.
Ian Thomas is in the streaming territory because it is Atlanta.
But the problem with Ian Thomas that more times not him and Curtis Samuel the ones they're kind of getting left out of the consistent volume so they could have.
They could both have good games this week, Possibly.
But the problem with them is that you don't know if it's their week to be involved, really, because it has to go.
Robby Anderson, D J.
Moore and running back, whether it's Christian Cafe or Mike Davis first, and then it kind of dictates it kind of goes back and forth.
Is Ian Thomas gonna be involved or is Curtis ain't gonna be involved and you don't know which ones that's going to be.
So while Ian Thomas you could make the argument is a stream mobile option this week.
I think there's guys with much higher floors that you could be able to stream over Ian Thomas.
So we move on to the Atlanta side of the ball where we don't expect to have Julio Jones this week.
Unfortunately, he's doubtful with a hamstring.
Uh, today he's supposed to getting an individual work.
Dan Quinn was talking about tomorrow.
They're going to do more of an assessment on whether or not he can go on Sunday, so it doesn't sound like they're completely ruling him out, which is kind of what we expected to happen at this point.
But it would be very hard for me to imagine after re aggravating the injury on Monday, a hamstring issue that's been bothering him for several weeks now that Atlanta in the position that they are within, run him out again and risk him getting knocked out again within the first half and re aggravating again Right now, the best thing for Julio would be to sit.
I know he sat two weeks ago.
Clearly, he's not over it yet.
You're you're coming off a shortened week.
The best thing for him, for fantasy.
Not that have Julio Jones this week if you're in order of his.
But the best thing for you, the best thing for Julio The best thing for the Falcons is for him to sit this week and get healthy.
And we hope that actually winds up being the case, because then you're gonna be forced in this position.
We're gonna have to play Julio because he's on the field and he's Julio Jones and Carolina Panthers.
And you're gonna be the entire game.
You're gonna be running the risk of me biting your nails because you know that any given second, he's gonna reaggravated get knocked out of the game again or it's just gonna be out there is a decoy because they'll just have him out there.
And then they throw the ball to Calvin.
Really? A Russell gauge.
So for the sanity of all fantasy owners, we actually need Julio Jobs.
Just sit this week because there's too many different variables.
There's too many.
There's too wide of a range of outcomes.
So that's what's going on there for now.
He does come in as a top 10 quarterback for us this week, He's Q B eight, so he's a lower Q B one.
I know that his last two games have not been great, but is the Panthers matchup? And even with or without Julio, he should be able to move the ball through the air with Calvin Ridley with Russell Gauge with Hayden Hurst.
The question is really going to be.
Does he get vulture by Todd Gurley? Because that's kind of what's going on right now.
They're getting inside the goal line and they're handing it all to Todd Gurley and he's converting.
If he doesn't convert, then they throw in those instances and all of a sudden Matt rank.
It's a few more touchdowns, and it doesn't have to depend on it coming from, you know, 20 yards or more out.
But if they keep getting within five and they keep handing off girly, that's kind of been the difference the past couple of weeks that Matt Ryan hasn't been able to throw from any touchdown.
So that's gonna be the question here against its gaming is Carolina, but it's too good of a matchup.
We know Atlanta has to throw the ball.
We know their offense is their defense is terrible.
We know Carolina's offense is pretty good right now.
So it all lines up for Matt Ryan to have to throw the ball around, you know, 38 to 40 times minimum in that range.
That's a volume that you're looking for.
He should provide you with the safe floor at minimum in this game, with or without Julio Jones.
Talk early, just talked about him a little bit.
He comes into the high end RB two because he's scoring touchdowns.
He just is what he does now.
Is he touched on the pendant? Yeah.
Does he score him? A lot, though So far through four weeks is, what, four touchdowns? It's pretty good.
And in this game against Carolina, there is a very good chance that he'll get.
They'll get with inside of five, and I'll hand it off to him.
There's a very real chance he's gonna get another touchdown or this is a game in which you could see him getting to, so it may not be pretty between the twenties right now.
He may not be involved in the passing game right now, but as far as running backs concerned.
He's one of the few guys that's scoring at a consistent rate, so you can play him as an R B two, especially in this game against the Panthers, with some confidence.
And I talked about this last week. I talked about the week before.
Every I'm gonna talk about this every week, really, that he scores every single week that Todd Gurley scores.
It just means more and more value for you to sell high at.
If you haven't been able to have been able to do it up to this point and you've been listening to this show, well, then buckle your seatbelts.
You're gonna probably another touchdown this week and then try it again next week.
Because if he goes through three games in a row where he scored, people are gonna start to throw away the narrative of Todd Gurley and start to look at him for what he is, which is a touchdown monster and returning fantasy value on it.
So there's a very good chance that if you haven't been able to sell high on him yet, which I think you should be able to buy now.
But if you haven't been able to, his value will go up even Mawr next week after this game.
That's a good news for you there if you're trying to get out of the Tiger early business, which I would be because it just doesn't look good between twenties and there's no floor there if he doesn't score Calvin Ridley.
He's a wide receiver.
One. You're starting him.
I know he Gusti last week.
He's gonna have a better game.
You don't have to worry about it.
I think the only real question is, Do you play Russell Gauge or not? Now he comes in as a wide receiver for for us that you can contemplate in the Flex, especially if Julio doesn't play.
If it's PPR, I can understand the argument there from wanting to put in Russell Gauge, but I know he got banged up two weeks ago.
He came out of that game for a concussion, so I don't get to play that full game.
But against Green Bay this past week, when Julia went out in the second half, it wasn't necessarily Russell Gauge.
You got the target fact he didn't get the targets in the second half.
Now, granted, that entire Atlanta passing attack was very odd in that game against Green Bay and nothing what anybody was expecting.
I know I wasn't expecting a shootout game, and but it just they mixed in their 3rd and 4th receivers.
It wasn't necessarily just going to Calvin Ridley or Russell Gauge in that game.
So I do have some concerns about the floor that I thought Russell Gauge was establishing in the first couple of weeks here in the season as a slot receiver.
Now that's something to keep in mind.
He's still the slot receiver, and that's still gonna be a guy who has a good matchup against Carolina Panthers.
As long as he sees six or seven targets, which especially without Julio, I don't see why he wouldn't in this game.
He should have a decent floor for you, but he does come.
Maurin is wide receiver for with some risk because one there's not a big upside there.
He's not necessarily touchdown guy.
It is going to be Calvin Ridley first and they just have some other guys getting mixed in right now.
But he's an option if you really need it in a desperate situation.
He's still a top and streaming tight end.
He comes in a tight end, 13 for us.
So he's a top tight end to It.
Hasn't been awesome for Hearst.
He hasn't been awesome Hooper of last year.
Let's put it that way, but he has been consistently involved.
There has been a floor for him each week, and I do believe, as the report continues, we know Matt Ryan will throw it to the tight end when they get in the end zone.
So I think those touchdowns they've been waiting for for Hayden Hurst are on the way.
I think they could come this week against Carolina, but I wouldn't panic.
Or if you've been a Hayden Hurst owner, he's still a guy who's gonna be teetering that tight end too tight and one territory.
He still has tightened one potential for the rest of the season to give just given the offense.
Being in or out of the lineup doesn't really seem to affect the usage of Hayden Hurst, which is kind of odd.
So even if Julio is out, I wouldn't necessarily look at that as Whoa there's more volume for Hearst.
It doesn't hasn't really seem to matter.
He's beginning about the same model volume, whether he's in or out.
It's just a matter of Is this the week that Brian goes to him in the end zone? Guess the Panthers.
It should be like I said, he is somebody who's been seeing 4 to 5 targets pretty consistently through the first four weeks.
So I'm good with him being a top bend tight end to we move on to the Buffalo Bills and the Tennessee Titans.
So obviously, with this game, this is a disclaimer for this show.
This is this is expecting them to play.
I don't know how it happens because it's Thursday and another player tested positive.
So the Titans have now gone what, two weeks without actually practicing? It's a mess.
It's an absolute mess.
So on Titan, we'll start with the tight inside the ball.
Here's what we know.
We know Adam Humphreys is on the cove. It reserved.
We know Corey Davis is on the cove.
It reserve list.
Brown is expected to come back this week.
So pretty much the way that passing game is setting up, and I think the only people you can really count on for fantasy football purposes would be A J.
Brown and John You Smith.
They're going to get all the passing work, and they're both touchdown guys.
Johnny Smith, I believe, is establishing himself as a possible top five tight and the rest of the way, just based on what he had been able to dio for the first few weeks of the season.
Now, at some point of time, we're gonna have to get back on the field for that to continue, and that's up in the air right now.
It's a little questionable, but he has been everything that we wanted him to be.
So far this season, he's on the field all the time.
Number one, because he could do it all he could block any can catch.
He's been a red zone target for Ryan Tannehill.
Some of that might be because A J.
Brown has been out for the first two weeks, but a lot of his because this Titans team is used to featuring a tight end.
A new Smith is the new Delaney Walker, and he could do everything Delaney Walker could dio.
I think he's establishing himself as a top five tight end moving forward.
So that's the good news there.
So you're definitely starting to a new Smith.
You're definitely going to start a J.
Brown because there's nobody else to throw the ball to downfield.
So he's gonna get all the volume and you have to play Derrick Henry.
I think we're becomes a little bit questionable.
A lot is Ryan Tannehill.
Now he is our Q B 11 so he's on that teetering Q B one Q B two for us.
He is somebody that we were stressing that you can play, and I do believe that you can.
But keep in mind that because the team hasn't actually practiced in two weeks, don't expect them to be super sharp, Especially in the beginning of the game.
I wouldn't expect him to be on their P's and Q's being that they haven't been able to practice past couple weeks, so I'm kind of keeping my head into this game.
I would maybe lower my expectations a little bit on the Derrick Henry A.
Brown, said John You Smith.
I'm playing all of them.
But maybe I won't have his high of an expectation for them heading into this matchup.
Just given the situation around that.
And that goes to Ryan Tannehill as well, because he has a safe floor because of the confines within his offense, because he can move the ball with his legs a little bit.
He that's why he's still gonna be a guy you can play, but I might want to take the chance on someone else this week.
Maybe has a little bit of a higher ceiling.
We got plenty of guys we're gonna talk about as far as that note goes.
So that's That's how you approach the Tennessee Titans.
From a fantasy perspective, if they actually play, the Bills should be pretty straightforward.
I mean, the only thing different about the bill is heading into this week, possibly is that Zack Moss is expected to be back and playing, so we have to see exactly how that's going to affect them.
And Singletary, who's been pretty solid the past couple of weeks without Zack Moss, does it go back to Week one, where they were 50 50 or doesn't go more like week to where it's kind of more of a 60 40 split, I believe is gonna be more of a 60 40 split across the board.
Because Devin Singletary has played well to this point.
Zach Moss is just coming off.
The injury hasn't practiced much until this week, so I think you're going to see a 60 40 split.
And the reason that's important, that if you're getting a 60 40 split at a Devin Singletary against the Tennessee Titans right now who look like they can't stop anybody on the ground so far this season, well, Singletary.
If somebody who should be considered as at least a high NRB three low and RB two and definitely a confident flex plate for you heading into this matchup, that's why that's important.
You're not gonna play Zach Moss, but Devin Singletary? If somebody who should be very low in R V two or a high end Flex play Stefon Diggs obviously playing him, he's in our lower end wide receiver one territory.
I'm not gonna play John Brown this week.
I have Maura's a wide receiver for not that he couldn't have a big play in this game. That is a possibility.
He does have that upside potential heading into this matchup.
But again, I don't know how much the Bills are going to need to do to win this game.
It could get ugly, the Tennessee tight inside the ball.
It really could.
So that's kind of where I question the game script to some degree.
But with John Brown likes, it only takes one play.
This is secondary.
There's a matchup that you like.
So while we have met wires here before, he does have some upside potential.
If you're looking at reflect, position three only person I'm definitely not playing is Cole Beasley, and Dawson knocks just to mention him.
You're not gonna play him this week.
He still has to do it a little bit more consistently, but he is somebody to kind of keep your eye on at tight end position, because if he continues to get back from his injury play well, get involved in this offense.
He might enter streaming territory sooner rather than later.
So just something to keep your eye on for now.
But not somebody gonna be playing this week.
So we move on to the Raiders and the Chiefs again The good news is nobody on the Chiefs tested positive.
I did forget this.
Now we're talking about the Raiders open the show.
They did have somebody on their defensive tackle test positive yesterday.
Now, as of today, that is the only person that I have heard test positive for the Raiders to this point.
So we let's say we'll say this way.
We feel more confident that this game will happen.
Then the Titans Bills game going into the going into the weekend.
So I think you I think you're gonna be OK.
I think you have to make too many contingency plans for your Chiefs and your Raiders players.
Not that there are a lot of Raiders players that I will be playing in this game anyway.
In fact, there's only two Jacobs, and that's Darren Waller, and that's pretty much goes without saying Our Gnarby one and a tight end one rugs is back at practice.
He was back in practice yesterday, so there's a decent chance that he will be able to play this week.
But rugs hasn't been a guy who's been going crazy for your famous e wise.
Even when he was healthy and He's just getting back in the action after missing a couple of weeks is you can't see Chiefs.
They actually played really well against the perimeter.
Wide receivers have been doing a good job.
Their defense still does not get enough credit.
They're starting to now.
Some people are starting to kind of recognize that defense is better than what people expect them to be.
I don't love this matchup for Henry rugs.
He still somebody.
I think you can roster him.
Bust water Seaver four option.
And I know against the chief there's a very real chance of the Raiders gonna have to come back from behind.
And there might be garbage time.
But I'm not gonna take that shot here.
There's a very low Florida comes to Henry rugs into this particular matchup, so I would wait a week, However, because he is back, I don't think you can play on a run for with any confidence.
He's already a guy who on Lee has a floor type of value heading in any given game.
And that's on Lee when the volume can go to nobody else except for him and Darren Waller now a slot receiver does usually have the mismatch against can see Chiefs, but I believe is gonna be a Darren Waller game.
Didn't have a great game last week.
I think they're gonna get him right.
I think I'm gonna lean on him.
Or I think it's gonna be more like Darren Waller of two weeks ago, where he's just getting fed the football and Henry rugs being back while it hurts Hunter Renfroe.
It does help Darren Waller quite a bit, because now the safeties cancers key in on him.
Drugs impact from an NFL levels what's going to help their Waller's fantasy value because he's gonna have to keep the safety.
He's gonna have to keep the safety, respecting the fact that Henry Roads could take the top off at any given time.
And that's gonna open up the middle.
That's not for Darren Waller.
He's gonna be able to get more of a linebacker or safety match up one on one, rather than being able to be blanketed or triple covered or cloud coverage, which is what has been happening to him since Henry rugs went out.
So I like Darren Waller to get back on track in this game quite a bit, but those are the only two players that I'm playing.
I'm not streaming Derek Carr this week, either.
He's getting closer, He's playing well.
But I'm not streaming Derek Carr just yet.
Not until all of his weapons air back and healthy on chief. Side the ball.
Yeah, I mean, it goes without saying Patrick Holmes.
Glad I was there.
Kill drivers Calc and Sammy Watkins this week, two weeks in a row.
Now Sammy Watkins has led this team and targets.
He's getting all the shorter, intermediate stuff, but he's providing a floor, and he's getting targeted in the red zone, too.
So in this matchup against the Raiders, which any player could go off against the Raiders, especially, he's a wide receiver, 31 for us.
He's a guy that you could definitely play as a flex with some confidence this week.
So you're Chiefs players. They're all playing.
No one's injured.
We don't have to talk about them too much, so we'll move on to the Cardinals and the Jets.
This the one where it's like there's a lot of implications here on both sides.
You have the Cardinals who have to get right.
They haven't looked at the past couple of weeks.
You have the Jets, which is you know, at what point is the point that you pull the lever on Adam, Jason, send him down a black hole? We don't know that yet.
And honestly, after last week in Week four, I don't I don't know if it's ever gonna happen, but as far as fancy publishes, Go obviously playing Colin Murray.
Obviously you're playing DeAndre Hopkins.
You are playing Kenyan drink now I'm taking him out of the top 10 which is what I had him in the past couple of weeks.
Given the matchups, this is another great matchup for Kenyan Drake.
But the offensive system is going to have to change before Drake is going to get consistently involved again.
And with the offense I've heard a lot of people talk about is Kenya drink? Banged up is Kenyan Drake, you know, Is he hindered as he just physically not look the same? I'm not seeing that I'm seeing a guy who's not playing in the same offense as he was last year when he was ex selling. That's what I'm seeing.
I'm seeing Cliff Kingsbury revert back to the coach that he was the beginning of season last year.
When he goes for wide, doesn't go vertical plays, Horizontal gets into the goal line, gets in the shotgun place with three or four receivers, not playing with his two tight end sets, no longer getting a push on the offensive line.
I'm seeing a guy who had to adjust from this a year ago.
He's doing exactly what he did.
This is exactly what I anticipated.
This offends being once they got DeAndre Hopkins, because this is the offensive he actually wants to run in his heart.
But this is where I'll give Kingsbury credit is that last year he did make that adjustment, and after these past two weeks, I don't know if he makes the adjustment this week necessarily.
But if their offense struggles against the Jets, it will come.
I can guarantee you that that's why Kanye Drake has been a bio option for us because there is a path that it's setting up for this thing to get sorted out pretty soon, especially, they continue to play the way that they have, so better days are ahead for Kendrick Kendrick owner.
Stay, stay strong.
He's gonna pay off for you if you're not buy low, because you probably buy low on him right now, especially after two weeks in a row of great matchups and him not producing and still a great matchup this week.
So I'm playing him. He is my r B 12.
I have confidence in Kenyan Drake.
I would definitely make sure you guys own Chase Emens, who's on the waiver wire report.
He's a must add if you're a kid and Drake owner, and even if you're not, I want to pick him up because again, the one thing that I do have a concern about when it comes to Drake is that we still have not seen him go 16 games as the Bell Cal back before, which means he is definitely a candidate for injury at some point this season.
Chase Edmunds is one of the higher and handcuffs you could possibly have. Right now.
He is a very good running back, so make sure you own Chase Edmunds.
If you have the roster spot available to do so on the Jets side of the ball.
Sam, Donald not gonna play this game.
Joe Flacco is gonna be the guy.
Levian Bell is expected back.
So what do you from fancy football perspective? Well, do you play live young? You've been waiting for him to come back? Probably need him as a Zanardi to or at least as a flex play this week.
We actually have an R B 16.
It becomes back this week.
We expect a high volume for for leave Ian Bell.
They have not been able to move the ball, and they haven't done anything in the backfield.
So there's a decent chance that even though he's Adam Gaze, because there's been no production out of Frank Gore, no production out of Michael Perino production out of Caleb Lodge, where they cut.
Finally, they're gonna have to give Levy on Bell the bell cow work.
And being that he's been off the last three weeks, I feel more confident that he is actually going to be healthy heading into this game. Now.
The negative side for Levy on Bell is that McKee Beckton may not play.
He's still questionable, but he may not play if he doesn't play.
That offensive line gets real bad real fast, but there's gonna be a volume with Levian Bell that we expected coming into this season.
We expected in the Have a B A High NRB three Low and RB two coming in the year because we expected to have high volume the passing game.
That doesn't change with Joe Flacco.
Joe Flacco will still don't the ball off to him, especially since his only weapons are going to be Jamison Crowder and Lady on Bell.
He's not gonna have anybody else.
Breshad Perriman is gonna be out in this game again.
And even if he was in there, James Crowder is head and shoulders the best wide receiver that they have.
Levian Bell is one of the best pass catchers that they have, so they're going to get that volume in there.
There's gonna be garbage time points for them.
So I said, Leave Ian Bell.
I'm comfortable playing him is an RV to this week based on volume Jamison Crowder.
I'm comfortable playing him as a low and wide receiver too high and wide receiver three especially.
We're talking about half 30.
4 point PPR leaks.
I haven't Wide Receiver 26.
He's the only guy they could go to and being that he lines up in the slot more times than not, It kind of gets to avoid the Patrick Peterson, the buyer Murphy Matchups of it all.
So that's the great thing about him There, too.
Expect 79 targets from James A. Crowder this week.
So what we're gonna do now, we'll take a quick break.
We still have a lot more games we have to get to Remember, we're previewing all of week five.
We are on the worldwide sports radio network W W s R.
