Week 9 NFL Fantasy Risers, Fallers, Streamers & Trade Targets - Episode 83

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The lads embark on an hour of pure NFL Fantasy analysis ahead of the important Week 9 Fantasy Week. The boys discuss who's risen and fallen in their rankings, who's values are over or under estimated and who are the ideal streamers for this week.

Cheese settle. Welcome back to the on the wall podcast. This is episode eighty three of the show. Pleasure to have you here today with us, once again, joined by Christian pilch. How are we mate? Good, mate, good to be back again. Yeah, we're only here yesterday talking about the NFL in real life. Not sure what other kind of nfl you can have, but today, well, I guess you can have NFL fantasy, which is what we're talking about today. In previous weeks we've done them as one episode, but this week we decide to split them. So if you want to go listen to our real life NFL thoughts in analysis, go back to yesterday's episode, go check that out. But today is going to be strictly fantasy stuff, which is the stuff we love. So very excited for this. Bit of a tester today, new structure, so we'll see how it goes. But yeah, pretty excited to get into it. Lots of lots of good stuff to talk about. So we're going to have a rises and full section at the start, which we have done every week. So who's risen up our rankings, who just fall? And we're going to have a bilow cell high section and then to finish us off, we're going to have a streaming section. So this is as much for me is it is for you guys listening, because I actually need to sort out my side for this week. But rises of the week will start with the main position on the field. Will Not really for fantasy, but QUB's. WHO's risen up your rankings this week? Pilch on the KEYB Slat. I've Gone Big Justin Herbert, pretty much a rise it every week. But I mean you just keeps pumping out over twenty points against everyone he plays, even some solid defense has like Denver last week. So ill man, it's kind of hard to not have him in, like in your top eight. Yeah, every week they see him to just scool between twenty five and thirty five points and they're not really rushing for many touchdowns. He's thrown most of them. So yeah, at the moment he's looking like a guaranteed qb one and they've got to store pretty easy fixtures coming up. I was having a look at him before and it's looking pretty juicy for him. So if, if you, if there's anyone out there that needs a qb, maybe throw the kitchen sink at Herbert, because this is probably a last chance because I don't think. I think it's called like twenty one or twenty one or something, which is pretty good, but I think from here on in it's going to be strictly twenty five he's going to be operating on. Got Got High Expectations for him. But yeah, Herbert, big eyes right, he's legit being a rise. Every week we've done this podcast. I think, yeah, yeah, I could show good shower for me. I've gone, this is a rogue one. I've actually Gone Ken Newton. It sounds pretty crazy, but this is a because he was pretty long my ranking, so not too hard to rise, but he was a lastminute funbule. He had to fund in the last minute, last drive, which costs the Patriots the game, but in fantasy terms that's a negative to or whatever it is, and that put him under twenty for the and that would have been the first time he cracked twenty since week too, and I'm not saying he's back to that, you know, first two week form. But he had his lowest completion percentage of the year, which you're thinking, that's not good, he's in bad form, but he still managed to get a hundred seventy four yards off on a horrible day in Buffalo. It was cold, it was wet, everyone was just running. But more importantly, add fifty four yards on the ground with a rushing td. So at this point it is getting too kind of the stage where if he doesn't get a rushing td it's roots for can neuton. But that's not even the worst situation in a QB. In a one QB League, I'm not sure how relevant he is because I think nowadays is a little bit away from being a qb one, but definitely in a QB two or super flex league like ours, I definitely think he's not a bad second quarterback to have or yeah, but in a qb one he's probably like if you're if you've got the worst qb, rocking is probably not the worst going round. But yeah, he's found Jacoby Myers, who seems to really like he's had double digit tie it's in the last two games, I think, and the Keel Harry's coming back from injury. They signed a wide receiver from the dolphins and the running game starting to look a lot better with Damian Harris coming back from injury. So I'm not saying the Patriots are going to come out and start scoring thirty points a game. But I think things are on the up. I don't think. I think can pretty much hit rock bottom after the covid scare. So I think from here it's going to be hard to see him continue doing as bad as he has been. So I think it's not a look, not a bad little situation for cam but yeah, well, as I said, if you have a Wayne Keybley's probably not that relevant,...

...is he? But do you hit? Do you think canyons worthy of the qb one sport or not? Only against? Only against like bad defense, is probably for now. But fair cool. He I think he's a riser as well, because he's yeah, that he dropped down so low after last week. Yeah, exactly. They've got the jets this week as well. Who You'd imagine their scoring? You know, three touchdowns at least against and there's not really anyone else to score them except for himself. But he'd be a good play this like that. Definitely. Yeah, all right, fools, who have you got in the quarterback position? For us, I've got Josh Allen. Another pretty poor game from the big man against New England. Who are who? Aren't known for being a good defense. But that's two games in a row now where he's looks quite poor and I'd probably he now take him out of that like top five elite tier for sure. He's probably around like seven, seven or eight for me now, when he was top four. I agree with that. I actually might have him in a section later. This is we were talking before we came on here. There's a little bit of overlap going on these sections, but definitely a fall. I think that's his fourth sub twenty score in a row after going the first five weeks. He well, first four weeks he was like just balling out, and I believe so he had a good side, but if he had a rushing touchdown as well, yeah, you did that. He kind of saved him from having an absolute stinker. Yeah, and Buffalos offense right now is just in tatters. It's not they're not really getting to going in the air or in the ground. So bit worries, and Buffalo in real life as well, that it's not playing that well. But hopefully I'll talk about it in another section, as I said, but who knows, he's fortune might turn. But yeah, hundred percent of fuller and yeah, not in that top tier at all anymore. Yeah, my fuller is Carson Wentz. This is another guy who might come up and in a later section. I don't know, because it is his first bad score in a while. But he whipped down an eight point six two against the cowboys, including four turnovers, and this is the cowboys, one of the worst defenses in the league this year. He had his fifth game with the completion sent completion percentage under sixty. So it's pretty like he's got to be attempting a lot of passes to have a lot of passing yards at the moment with that completion percentage. But yeah, as I mentioned, he could be a bilow situation. But yeah, right now not really sure if he's a top twelve quarterback. There's obviously a lot of better options out there. So and safe options, I'd say. But their offense they do have players coming back, so that should help whence. But yeah, right now doesn't really matter who's on the park. He's just playing pretty bad and, similar to Cam Mutant, it's kind of just a rushing touchdown or not or bust at the moment for Whenz. So yeah, I'd be quite worried if I was a wins owner and he was my qb one at the moment. Or running backs rise with the week. Man. I've gone real obvious here, but Dalvin Cook pumped out four touchdowns against Green Bay. kind of hard to rise when you're already certified top five man, but I had him. I had him last out of up tier with like Kamara, McCaffrey, Henry and Jones, and now he's probably second or third. So I'd I'm definitely have them above Henry and Jones. Now. Yeah, I agree with you a hundred percent. Cook is an absolute beast in that in that top Echalon of running backs and luck. It's just he's a muster like I would die to have downn cook at the moment he's absolutely killing. At the start of the season I was a bit worried about in Madison was getting a lot of touches, but that's kind of faded the last two weeks and he's just taken over and I think they've actually got pretty enticing fixtures coming up new than if they take the lead, well then, Carson, this game it's game over for cooks. Are Not casting my riser of the week in the running back spot. I've gone for a pod Ivan gone from Prema. I've got Damian Harris mentioned him before with Cam Newton. But you and me, we've been keeping well, a lot of fantasy experts will not experts. Players wouldn't call US experts, but yeah, we've been keeping an eye on him. Yeah, I actually would. We've been keeping an eye on him since his return from injury and yet for the second time in four matches, upon returning to the side, he's gone over a hundred yards on the ground. He has had over five yards per carry in three of his four matches. He's played Red Zone and receiving our what's limiting him from being like a Garret, like a starting option? I'd say at the moment he's not really involved in the air game because they just go to James White everything and then the Red Zony did score rushing touchdown on the weekend,...

...but he I think he's split red zone attempts with REX burkhead, but hopefully is. Harris is only young, I think. I think he got drafted last year and then how does I think he missed the whole season last season due to injury. I'm not a hundred percent sure on that, though, but I know this is his first season of playing and so yeah, you'd hope as he continues to do well he might start to take more of the red zone rushes away from burkehead and that would definitely spring him into starting running back contention. But at the moment he's probably not that not in that tear. But given the amount of injuries in the running back position, I think due to his high floor with the amount of times he gets the footy on the ground, I think he's definitely worth picking up on the bench and definitely worth having a lookout because if their offense all of a sudden starts to hitting, starts to hear their straps and they start moving the ball lot easier, will then the the red zone attempts are and they going to increase. So I think he's a decent option. And they've got the jets, the Ravens and the Texans in the next three. Some of them are good run defense, but they will likely provide a good game script. And then some of the other and then the Texans are both. So there's something in all three of those matches for Harris. Very intrigued. Kind of tempted to get in myself at the moment. But yeah, I like Damian Harris a lot. Like like the high floor he brings to the team. What about you? For full of the week here? Yep, could sep four of the week. I'm finally, I'm finally putting him in the falls. He's been pretty Boris all year. But Jonathan Taylor, he officially sucks at football. Yeah, they they played who they played? Light Detroit Lions, one of the worst run defenses in the League, had like twelve carries for twenty yards. They bring on Wilkins. Wilkins just tortures them. He's he's in like the best situation you could possibly want as your fantasy running back, best o line in the League, Getting Twenty plus touches a game, but he's just doing absolutely nothing with them, and it's pretty safe to call him a flop now, like I'll be. I'll be looking to sell him this week, but no one will want him, so he'll probably be on the waivers. Yeah, here's a fall of for me as well. Before this week and before the bye, two weeks in the fifteen points. So that's not too bad. You'll take that. But yeah, this week he got out carried by Wilkins. And then including a red zone attempt, which is always not what you want to see when you've got a when you think you've got a certified R be one. And yet the game script suited in perfectly as well. Like they hit the lead pretty quick and you thought they would have just started to run it tailor, to run it down their throats, but he just couldn't get it going. And Yeah, and the last three matches he's had what this is his carry totals? He's had twelve, twelve and eleven. Yeah, and if you look compare that to the R be the certified R be ones, that's they're getting a lot more than that. They're looking at you know S. so, yeah, I agree with you there. Taylor has definitely fallen a little bit. Do you think he's still worth a start? Like, do you think he's in the top twenty four running backs in the competition? Yeah, like, I'll, I'll still be valuing him in there, all jacks aside, but this week against Baltimore you can't really be starting him. Yeah, that's a good point, but yeah, I think. I don't think he's a byload, but I don't I don't know. It's a tough one, isn't he? Honestly, could he could be a byload, depending what you yeah, because he could like. I actually still think he's going to be there. Are Be one, but he shout like I think he's still going to lead Wilkins in carries. But, as I said before, yeah, just twelve, eleven, ten carries, and I really want those numbers, do, especially when he's not going like Sam friend. Yeah, it's but carry numbers. Most of those previous weeks where he is getting no carries was because of game script, like the Bengals, they went down anyone kill in the first quarter. But this was the first week where he had all the perfect scenarios going for him and he and he cocked it up. So yeah, but I think Wilkins is questionable for this week. So that might be worth having to look at it. As you said, it is a tough matchup, but who knows? or at my wide receiver riser of the week, I've Gone Corey Davis. I think he actually did. He still sit on the waivers in our lead. I picked him up today. I'll dropped our cadeling shepherd. Yeah, I was going to say I really competent him being on the waivers, but kind of like my wide receivers. But yeah, second game with ten targets in a row. He had ten and tire of last week as well. cought his third touchdown in five matches and he's got a pretty tough run of fixtures. But I was looking at those teams they've got and they're all pretty good run defenses, which means he's they're likely going to well, if you can, if it's possible to, they're likely going to limit Derrick Henry, which means the...

...times will have to start throwing more than they like to and that's only going to see Davis increased targets. And also the game script will probably start to suit them because they aren't in the greatest to form. In the last two weeks they've played too decent sides. Well, the steels are a great team in the bengals have been in good form. But yeah, they've got a few tough games in there. So it wouldn't shock me if in a couple of them they go down early and have to just start throwing it. So I think Davison Brown will both benefit from that. So yeah, for me he's a big rise of this week and yeah, it was probably pretty rude that he didn't get picked up in the initial waivers for this week. I didn't pick him up, so I can't really talk. But Yeah, is he? is He your eyes with the week? If you gone someone else, I've gone someone else, but definitely agree he is a riser. I've gone with I'm finally buying into Travis Fulgan. I think we miss was Jalen reaget came back and full grim remainders the clear Alpha and he still bought out and he hasn't gone below I think, fourteen points since he debuted like six weeks ago, and he's genuinely copping like minimum eight targets a week. So I mean there's a lot to like and he's got a very good fixture going forward. I think the eggs of one of the easiest remaining schedules in terms of passing defenses. So I think he's a big riser and someone you could probably buy low, considering he's still a bit of a myth and his name is Travis Fugan. Yeah, interesting. That's very interesting. I might be contradicting that later, but we'll see. My faller of the week is my man. You're for me. You're man. Deonte Johnson had last week. He returned well, had his first game where he was fully fit, basically, and he went for fifteen targets, absolute beast against the titans, and this week he left us owners with three targets one catch, and the catch came in like the last two minutes, I'm pretty sure. So it was against a good defense and there's better. He's got better fixtures to come. But yeah, for me right now, the Pittsburgh stealers wide receiver Corse, it's very hard to trust with fantasy. It's almost like the San Francisco back Backfield, like caught one week, one week clay pools getting ten targets, Washington gets ten targets, bloody Juju gets ten targets, Deonte gets fifteen, like Dante. In my opinion, is still the best fantasy option quite comfortably. But yeah, it's start to look a bit bleak for all of their hopes as they have kind of started to take each other out blow keeps doing injuries midgame as well. Pretty sure he did miss it. Yeah, he missed like five minutes or something the first quarter. But yeah, not ideal. And there was a defensive past interference on like a sixty yard bomb that he could have got to. But yeah, not ideal at all. Three targets. Be Liking a lot more from someone who is starting well, I started. It's costs me my fixed char cheers brother, who's your wide receiver in the fuller category, Dj Chark. He's been pretty poor recently. But now that garden minshew has fractured his thumb or whatever he did and you'll miss some time, shark is pretty much irrelevant in my opinion. While Min sho's out and he's like yeah, I don't know, you can't really start him anymore at all. Yeah, I was pretty low on Jacks. Become a bit of a Miss Actually, because keyling Cole and Lebiscus should not have both had great volume this year. And like, yeah, I've been pretty low on shark, like I think when I have my did my rankings two or three weeks ago. He was down with like Michael Gallop in like the s but yeah, no, not not key on him at all. Right, that call game scrip might suit them, but if you've got a myth, if you've got a guy who's not the greatest of throwing, doesn't really matter who's if what the score is, it's just not going to be good signs for the him and James Robinson pretty much does everything for them these days. But yeah, good, cool tight end riser of the week. I've got a probably another weird one, but Evan Ingram. He's finally strung together two decent performances, which has been strange. He's been struggling with this year. He's had a couple good ones and then he always backs it up with a stinker. But he finally last week he had nine targets. This week he had ten targets against too really good defenses as well, and their offensive starting to lift in general. There they were right in there with ten PAS. Scored twenty three points against arcuably the League's best defense. So reds own chances should increase for him as they play some easier teams coming up. But yeah, I think angram has risen up my rankings because you'll starting to get pretty low on them. But I still think he's a tight end one and,...

...yeah, someone who wouldn't mind having in my side. Who's your ris with the week? Yep, good call that I've Gone Tj Hawkinson. I think you might have been my rise of last walk, but I reckon he's now now that, especially now that kiddle's gone, he's I reckon he's the number for man behind, behind Kelsey, waller and Andrews going forward. Fan and the ground may have something to say about it, but I'd probably take the Hawk over them three. He's actually like he pumps out like twelve every week, which is exactly what you want. You don't want any of this twenty or three bullshit. You just want to better consistency and that's exactly what the Hawk brings to the table. Yeah, we recalled it, did we, mate? There was about we love, we love the hawk. Yeah, there was like three blokes who were in the preseason rankings from about like fourteen to seventeen, but you kind of just knew like one or two of them we're going to go beast this year, while that was my rankings anyway. And Yeah, one of them was the hock. But we were both knew that. We both knew that was a pretty strong chance he was going to break out the season. So yeah, good on the hulk. Well done to the owners who picked him up. They're laughing at the moment. He's probably arguably better than Andrew's these days. But yeah, yeah, only true. My Fuller of the week is I think you actually rate this guy a lot higher than I do. But it's Johnny Smith. He's recently been dropped to the waivers in our league and you think, well, I don't know what you think about the decision, but you're saying someone who our kid Al Own, I should definitely pick him up and they've got their tight and sort of. But I'm not sure about that because he's had he's third sub five point performance in a row, eight targets and across three matches, and in the first first month of the competition he had seven or more three times and now he's hardly got that in three weeks. He's got some pretty rough fixtures to come as well, and I know I was saying the game script will suit like date for Davis. But yeah, John who just not sure about it. I think at the moment, like a lot of tight ends, he's back to just relying on touchdowns and against like the colts and I can't remember who else they've got. Come on. I think they've got the ravens to come. Colts twice. It's going to be tough to see them scoring a lot of points. So yeah, for me, Johnny is no longer time and one. I think there's a lot of juicy options, like Albert that. But yeah, I don't know about that either. But yeah, he's my he's my faller. What he's about is my fault as well. All beautiful for the exact exact reasons you've just said. But the reason I said the kid owners should pick him up is because the tight ends are pretty Boris this year and he's lost kidder. We had no backup. So out of everyone, I was checking our waivers and there's not really anyone to go for apart from like Jared Cook, who is also reliant on touchdowns. So I reckon. I's probably conyin to be honest. Yeah, but that's who tyler got for Johnny. Okay, okay, that makes sense. Yeah, or fair play. I think we've done pretty well. They're enjoyed it. There's always now onto the bylow cell highest action. So we've we've passed our bread and butter and we're into new territory here. Haven't done this before, but who are your qb is in this section? Just maybe say whether you're buying low or selling high, because I could could cause some confusion. Yep. So by low quarterback Teddy Bridge Water. He's gool. Only scored ten or maybe twelve against the Falcons, which does not look good on paper, but he did come out of the game for I think a full quarter or most of a quarter, and going forward he still has elite weapons in Anderson and Dj more and C MC is returning this week and he's like genuinely pretty good. So I think he's a huge bylow because he's average. Don't luck. Doesn't look that good. So if you can get it for cheap, I'd be a steal. Yeah, and the game script pretty much always suit's Carolina. Yeah, so it's definitely a juicy option rate that one. I've got their receivers in by low section, but we'll talk about that when we get there. So My bylow is actually your fuller of the week, Josh Allen, for consecutive games of sub seventeen scores in a row, so it's not looking good at all, but I still think he's definitely a qb one and I reckon right now. You could get him for very, very cheap and he's got a favorable matchup this week against Seattle. I know it's not all about short term glory, but basically I would want to get him before this week because I think he might do pretty well there. But yeah, the offense has been pretty bad form in the last month. But if you look at how the offense has gone since the start of two thousand and nineteen, they've been pretty good. So you'd like to think it's just a bit...

...of bad form and they're going to bounce back and that will inevitably see Josh Allen Bounce back to good fantasy form. John Brown's also been out. I think he played on the weekend but didn't do anything, but him coming back helps the offense because like stretches it out and just adds another receiver for the defenders to think about. Zack Moss is now back and they're running game for the first time on the weekend finally did something. And Yeah, the cold weather in buffalo owners is pretty weird rogue thing to take into account, but they're probably going to run start running a lot more than they've been passing. But he's probably going to be a huge beneficiary of that as well, because he loves a scoot out of out of the quarterback position. And Yeah, he's still a huge rushing td threat, as we saw on the weekend. He snagged one there. I think that's now maybe six for the season, maybe five, which is what we love. We're seeing Kylo been doing a week and week out. It's made him a one of the one of the best quarterbacks in fantasy. And Yeah, he's had in the last three weeks he's had two matches where he's had less than thirty attempts, but that's because the game against Kansas it was pouring down and the game against New England it was horrible conditions and, as I said, the weather does get worse at this time of year, but it's unlikely to be that bad every single week. So you would expect him to get a back above thirty attempts a game. And Yeah, like, for example, the way are checked the weather this week. It's looking good and then they play Arizona next week, which is the deserts, or it probably won't be bad there. So yeah, I think Josh Own's definitely by low for me personally. Do you think that's fair, or would you just be a still a bit not worried about it's a good call. He is definitely a qb one, probably a top eight qb still. So if you can get him for a good price, definitely don't. Yeah, or at sell high. Who Are you going here? I've actually gone with your man, Cam Newton in my cell. I found this hard as by the way, the cell hard, and even know who to go with. Yeah, I just block bother this time, blocks that they last week. Pretty much. Yeah, for the other positions I didn't find it too hard, but for the QB's, I didn't think there was many. But yeah, it's on. I found the QUB's hard for every section. But Yeah, Cam Newton scored eighteen or something. I think scored a rushing touchdown. Yeah, and I think people are still still going to remember what he did in weeks one hundred and twenty three or whatever it was, where it was just scoring to to rushing touchdowns a week, averaging thirty three, and I think people will just just value the name as well. So I mean, if I think you could definitely still get quite a bit for him and I don't think he's a qb one going forward. So a chance to sell and I agree with you there. Yeah, if, if, if we're in a one QB league. I'd be looking elsewhere then, Cam Newton, because there's better blokes out there. My cell high is not really sell high like you didn't even he hasn't even done that well in the last two weeks. But I couldn't really think of any others but Ryan Tannehill. He had a pretty good start to the season, so he's average is still quite high. But in the last two weeks he's had two sub twenty scores, but he's still the qb eight. So if you could sell them to someone they'd still value him quite highly. But I was looking a little bit deep into his numbers and he has three hundred and twenty five plus scores and they came against the Jags, the bills and the Texans, who are three, I've been three, you know, three poor defenses this season, and then in the next five weeks he's got the bears, the colts, the Ravens, the colts and the browns. So not an ideal fixture for Tennessee, as I keep talking about. And Yeah, for me in a Qubi one league, I'd be looking to go elsewhere fit for him. Checking anyone would cop Tanna Hill for Allen? Yeah, people would cop it I reckon. I think. I think I'll go on spot. Yeah, I'd hundred percent rather Josh Allen, but I was wondering if, given that they are my bylow and sell high, I wonder if people would cop that. I think Allen is like one position above them in terms of total points. Might have to go a little bit lower than Josh Allen to get rid of him. But yeah, for me Tanners, yeah, I wouldn't want him, but in a Qub two league could arguably being by low. So just depends what situation you're in. So take it with a great can he still like probably at qb one, like right on the right, on the lower end of it? Yeah, we saw last year in tough games he still managed to do quite well in fantasy because like rushing and he starts to throw it more, they have to go to Derrick Henry every time. But yeah, that's my pretty still. Yeah, yeah, all right, running back or bylow. Clyde Edwards a layer score. They played the jets. They ran the ball about eight times, mahomes through the ball about forty eight times, chucked up five touchdowns. But they're not going to have the luxury of...

...being able to take the piss every week against the jets. And you know, Clyde is still in that unreal offense behind the beast defensive line. He's splitting with Bell, but he'll still get majority of the carries, who average five yards to carry, score, score a couple touchdowns here and there. So yeah, I think and I think people probably be starting to panic, especially after this week. So I reckon it's a good chance to buy low and him I'm still having he's definitely still easily a running back to just that. He be pretty easy one. Yeah, yeah, like for me, we have quite a few people in our league. I don't know about you listeners what your leagues are like, but a lot of people, given the amount of injury they're running back, you know, quartet or however many they have, is looking pretty bad. And like I have gaskin and Henderson who are both injured at the moment. So yeah, getting clide in as Barby two would be pretty nice. My bylow is well, first of all, before I start, I just wanted to say if you're lock two in in playoffs, I'm not. I don't know if you think you are not on a hundred percent. Start making plays for the injured guys, Talking Nick Charb Austin, a clar Rahim most it or even miles gaskin, I think right now, if the holders of those but there's I think there's five weeks left before the fantasy playoffs start. So if the holders of those players need a few wins, especially like Eckler, well, gaskin less so, the other three definitely, because they're on ire. So if they need wins and they need players playing now, you could definitely get them for a lot cheaper than what they're worth and you can kind of start just looking at their their average in terms of valuing them, rather than factoring in they're not going to play this week, because if you're already in playoffs, it doesn't matter if you lose this week. So yeah, just wanted to say that. But my bylow is actually feel Lindsay, and I think we've talked about this every single episode, but Melvin Gordon is still set to faces drink driving charges and from everything I've read it's meant to have him receive a three week band and I think that's meant to take place after this weekend, but I'm not a hundred percent sure on that. But yeah, Fill Lindsay. He doesn't. He hasn't been getting any receiving work, but that's because of Gordon. So when Gordon get suspended he'll take that it. And then in these last three matches Phil Lindsay. He's gone over seventy yards from scrimmage, which is basically just been rushing, and they've got following this week. They've got the raiders and the dolphins. So I think there's two pretty pretty solid scores coming up from Lindsay in those two matches if Gordon does get suspended. So this one is solely based on the fact that I expect Melephn to get suspended for three weeks. If he doesn't, then don't go for him. But yeah, right now he's probably not being started by anyone, so I think you could get him for quite low. They're probably to see him as a bench option, but yeah, I reckon he could be a pretty juicy option. I'd be keen. But sadly the guy owns fill Lindsay doesn't play the game anymore. But that's okay. WHO's your cel? High Yep, so high I've got cream hunt. He's weirdly he has not been performing at all without without Nick Chob in the team. But Nick Chub is going to come back probably in one or two weeks. He's been listed as day to day by what's his name, their coach is day to day. So he's back any second and when he comes back, hunts hunts rain, he's going to be over. He'll still be good. But if you look on like fantasy pros, rankings things like that, they all have still have cream hunt as like the running back six rest of season, and if people are going to be valuing him in the top ten, I'll definitely be shipping him off because as soon as CHOB's back he'll be back in the R be to range and still be good because he was boring. Still be your hand with the star, probably, yeah, but yeah, he'll be in a committee. So yeah, I agree with you and that probably that same the other guys that I mentioned before. In terms of the injured players, I don't really have any RBS who are up there like hunters at the moment. But Yeah, if you've if you've got someone starting for them, for example Jared Mckinnon, if you want to try and sell him for something, because in two weeks time he's going to be waivers. So Day's will get something for him, and that probably goes for all the backup RV two is I've got this down. This is another obvious one, like the injuries, but I just felt like pointing it out. If you're an owner of Giovanni Bernard, Jamal Williams or Boston Scott or Jarek McKinnon, I'd be trying to get them for anything this weekend, even if it's a bench player, for some depth, because they're basically just going to go back into fantasy a relevance this week or next week, depending on which team they're on. I don't know if that's I don't know if you agree with that. Do you reckon any of them have a chance of still being fantasy relevant when their starters come back? No, definitely not.

As long as long as Sanders, mixing and Jones are playing, then they're going to be irrelevant. and Jamal's just been put on the COVID Covid I offing you, so he's cooked. Yeah, it's like it's kind of sucks for you. I think you would have started of him anyway and kept him. But if I was you, yeah, it would have been a nice sell high moment for Jamal, because he probably would have done this well, so this well this week. So you probably could have lured people into that. But yeah, my main cell this is a very specific one, but right now I'd be trying to sell Alvin Kamara for Christian McCaffrey plus. If you could get McCaffrey or even Dalvin Cook for Kumara and add something on out, a hundred percent do it because in my eyes McCaffrey and cooker arguably better than Kumara, if not level. So I think if you could get those two and then get more in, I think it's a positive trade for your side because I think with Thomas Coming back, sender should be back callaway. I know he's only like new to the system, but he saw him to action the other week. Cooks now fully healthy their offense. The air game looks like it's starting to get back to normal a little bit, which probably should. Will See Kumara get less receptions. So he's still going to be one of the top options and he's still going to be receiving, you know, five or six times a week, but I don't think we'll see any of this like ten or eleven reception crap that we've been seeing. So yeah, for me it's probably a risky play because if Kamara does continue to be the rb one and, you know, McCaffrey comes back and he's not looking as good or something. But for me I think it's worth the gamble if you could upgrade another position or something like that slightly, because I don't think there's much in it between Kamara, McCaffrey and even album cook. So yeah, all right, I write that call. Yeah, you could. So, yeah, if you can get my car, kind of I was trying to do. Yeah, it's kind of what I was trying to do with my tight ends. I don't think I'm going to be doing it now because there's been some waivers today. But yeah, I've ground cowskin. I was thinking of downgrading him for someone if I could improve elsewhere, because I don't think, yeah, there was much between the two. But yeah, it's a risky play, but I think it's not the worst play going around. Or are wide receivers wide receivers? Yep, so by low I think you're going to talk about this bloke as well, but Robbie Anderson, he's he's averages kind of starting to fall but he's still saying like all the opportunity and he's doing more targets than Dj more each week and he's only scored one touchdown the entire season, which was in round one, which took me by a huge surprise. But yeah, he'll so he's too touchdowns as well. You'll score a few more going forward. And Yeah, he's definitely a bylow like a still I'd still view him as not a wide receiver one, but like bordering on it, just outside that that region. Yeah, a hundred percent agree with everything you just said. Also brilliant. Think about the too Carolina white outs. They have great yards per reception and we're seeing with DK metcalf even if you're getting, well, not on the weekend, but like in the first month the competition, even if you're getting only seven, eight nine targets a game, you can still be in that top echelon of receivers if you're going it like twenty yards of catch. Ye, but yeah, but on Thursday night football, just going against the Falcons. They both went under ten in terms of a score, but they had eight and six targets respectively. That's Anderson and DJ. More Teddy probably had one of his weekly games, but he was. He did miss time and that probably just interrupted the offense in general because you know, they had that other quarterback come in for a couple snaps and then. Yeah, but SAMC is going to come back. Dave's had kind of started to become not so efficient on the ground, so that's probably going to improve their offense a lot. And they've got Kansas, Tampa, Detroit and Minnesota coming up, which is probably going to suit the game script for and Sina more so. Yeah, I definitely think they're by low, for sure. Yeah, what about I'll go myself high. This is actually your riser at the week, traveler Willgum. He's up to eighty six point one rostered on, so he's he's not so much of a myth now, but he's still probably being underappreciated, I have to say. But in the first time in three he went three weeks of having ten plus targets. This week he only had seven, and Jalen Riga and Dallas Gott it both returned and earths and sanders are still to come. And after the buy this week he's likely to face this is if opposite. Shouldn't teams be have view him as the art wide receiver one. He's got Bradbury after the buy. He's got Bradbury Denzil Ward Seattle, which is fine, and then Gi Alexander. So if he's been doing well. I think he played one of them the other week and he still did well. But yeah, it's...

...not an ideal matchup for any wide receiver. So if he if he's viewed as the wide receiver one by those sides in real life, yeah, might be a cell high for me. But yeah, I can see why you'd keep him because he's still producing good output. But controversial, I'd say, from myself, because I don't mind the clar reckon. It could be in either category to be honest, because if people just look at like people's averages and he's averaging luck just under twenty points, then then you could probably sell him high. Yeah, but like, yeah, I reckon, he's I reckon he's the real deal. dragoned it. Yeah, he sees a lot of red zone as well, which is which is tasty. WHO's your sell high? My sole high is Mike Evans. I just he's just been copying. I think he's had a niggle all year, but he's just copying like so low in terms of snaps and now they've got Antonio Brown coming in. God, when coming back he'll probably be the genuine wide receiver three, potentially rotating in and out with Mickens or Scotty Miller. So so it's kind of it's tough to see him. Like he'll still have games where he scores to she touchdowns, goes big, but he's not going to have consistent volume at all going forward. And people people still view and matters Mike Evans. So people who want to buy he's basically a tight end. Now it's obviously joe like. He gets like three or four times and get a touchdown. It does gets twelve. So yeah, I'd a hundred percent try and sell him up. When I was talking about the Pittsburgh wide receivers, I was actually thinking about the temple one receivers. They're probably in a similar situation. Everyone's just everyone has their week basically where they're the leading target. Get us. I probably wouldn't want any of the temple white outs at the moment, but yeah, like they all they're all decent players, so I can get why you'd want them, but yeah, for me they're overvalued tight ends. My Bye. My bilow is actually Mark Andrews. We talked about it before. You were saying he was the third tighten. Now that kid was gone. Yeah, he's had to subtend schools in a row, but he is sick and red zone targets. Out of all the tight ends in the competition coming up, they've got the colts, the Patriots, The Times, the steels and the cowboys. So too tough ones in there, the cops and the steels, but then the other three are pretty nice for the Ravens and realistically this is like similar to the buffalo bills. You'd expiat expecting the Ravens to start lifting in the passing game. They then be bad the last month, but they're a good team. If they're going to be any decent for playoffs, they've got to start hitting their straps in the air. So I think it's worth hedging your bets on that coming true and trying to Stag Mark Andrews. Follow like I'm genuinely tempted to see if I could get andrews for chrome. Yeah, but I'd be because I's. Yeah, I prefer Andrews has like just I just prefer his start lines. The gronks. But yeah, who's your bylow here? My Barlow is Dallas. Got It Dallas. He came back this week. Played barely any of the match because he's coming back from an injury off I A had like one catch for five yards or whatever then or one catch for ten yards and then he scored to but yeah, he's I mean, we all know how shit airs is this year and he's still injured. Got It. Got It's definitely their number one tight end. It was a number one tight end for the first months when they were both going at it and like he's kind of become a bit of a myth because of the injury and now he's just scored to so if you can secure him, I would because he's definitely a tight end one, probably potentially a top eight tight end, given the lack of depth at the position this year. Yeah, I think as he went on, I he was like sick. Then my rankings or something. He was right up there. He was falling. Yeah, I understand back that. Once again, sadly, he is with an irrelevant owner. Yeah, right, could we can't get a Quin? Never Chex his team. In our league he's got three like genuine solid tight ends. Yeah, we've got three, at three out of ten might even be for now, who don't check their side. So, stat feel free to comment or damn the podcast on the instagram if you want to play next year. We're sellings if we looking for players or my cell. High is probably controversial because they've been doing well the last couple weeks, but similar kind of echoed the same statements with Kamara. But Cook and Gronkowski, they just really so much on TD's. I personally don't really like it. And they've got both got players to come back, which just frightens me a little bit as a fantasy owner of Gronkowski. Cooks obviously got the whole band come back. He's Got Thomas Senders and callaway, if that matters, and then...

Gronkowski's got God when to come back and Brown to come in. So yeah, and Evans might slowly get to full health. So yeah, for me, both of them. They're still likely going to get touchdowns. Their offense will probably improve as the players get back, so you could look at it that way. But yeah, I just don't like their reliance on touchdowns. It kind of freaks me out because if all of a sudden they go one week without a touchdown. They're getting sick. So I'd rather someone who sees a bit more of the footy, like I genuinely prefer Robert Tonyan to these two. Yeah, over just me. Surely, surely you do not like? I don't know, I like Tony had seven targets on the weekend, like that's pretty juicy. But yeah, I don't know. I'll have to compare those two because I could get some more. I could get some stuff with that Beetna. I had grown high my rankings. I'm just a little bit frightened by some of the uncertain factors that coming up in the next few weeks. Do you do cop that, or Gin? They're both good fantasy options to well, I think Gronk is good luck. He's copy. He's copying a fair share of targets, to be fair, but cook is my fault. Sell Hive the week exactly what you said, reliant on touchdowns, and we've watched we've watched Saints Games where we've said to each other like is this block injured? Because he's just he's just never on the field. I swear he played like thirty percent of the snaps and he just comes out when they're in the red zone or whatever, and he's coming off like a decent score this week, so sell him ship moth like it. I like it. See Jared. All right, final section. Streams of the week will probably go a little bit rapid fire on this one. quarterback streamers of the week. So this is people who are on less than sixty percent of ESPN fantasy rosters. We're in a Qub two league, so the QB stream is are pretty irrelevant for us. But it's kind of hard to choose. But who, if you gone here, is you're the best streamer. Yeah, so for the QUBI's, we've assumed it's a one QB. They those play at home. But Derek car and the on, how is he for? Not In eighty percent side. Couldn't believe it. And he's gone up this week. So before this week he was on like forty. Yeah, it's weird. It's weird, but he's playing the chargers, who actually have considered a lot of like passing yards and touchdowns every week. So if you if Derek car is available and you need a cube this week, he's a hundred percent in the man for you. Yeah, don't get scared by last week stuff. They were in horrible conditions. They showed this field goal attempt and I't like started on the right post and like just swerved past the left post because the wind and the only through. It only through at twenty four times, which is rare for the raiders. And but he's only had two turnovers in the last three so he's a pretty safe streamer. And Yeah, as you said, lock chopped up the charges on the weekend, so I'm sure they are with better weapons and lot can chop them up. And he's my main streaming. But also just a shout out to nick mullins. If you want to be risky, I think they're pretty spot he's pretty Spici the option because Jimmy Geez out for a little bit. So mulins is going to be more than a one week option if you see him that way. And yet the forty nine is to have a tendency to run more than past. That was what would scare me. But especially this week they've got the packers, so you think they're going to have to throw because the game script. So I think my mulins could be a spicy pick up. But yeah, at cars definitely the best streamer hundred percent. Running back. Game is going to be a shootout because, yeah, I've teams don't have a Backfield, so they'd gone to both. Are just going to be throwing as thoughts of one. Yeah, runner. WHO's moles throwing to, by the way? Yeah, well, I only are you just being put on the COVID list? Yeah, and d both samuels out and kiddled yeah, and Kendrick born. I'm pretty sure Kendrick borns the blow who tested positive. So I actually don't know who they're. WHO's left? Like I don't know who the other players are right. That's actually disgusting. Got To bring that done. Tepe heed us back from death. R. Yeah, running back to maybe don't stream mulins this week after her back. Yeah, running back. My one is this is assuming Chris Carson is out, which I'm hearing him most likely will be. He's still projected sixteen on ESPN or whatever, but he's going to be out most likely. So Dj Dallas. He's the last man standing in the Seattle backfield. Just scored twenty two against the forts because of two touchdowns, but, like I'd say, he's pretty much a lock to score a touchdown in that off in that Seattle offense. And Yeah, he's like he's going to get all the opportunity to himself. Probably isn't the best player, but opportunities keep and being a girl hinds. He looks crap and then he...

...just whipped out twenty two point eight. Like you look like you were struggling, but I'm a buffalo. Get there, Affalo, who have been yet the average against the run? Right? Yeah, eighth worst and yeah, it's Pert carry and he scored twenty two point eight against a good defense in the niners. He had twelve red zone opportunities last week. So targets plus running attempts and the game script would suit again if things go to plan, because they should take the lead the early against Buffalo and he can run it down. My only warrior is obviously of Carson plays, but also travis homer, is bit of a myth, but last week he was active, but he was basically injured, so he only had ten cent of snaps. And when Carson originally got injured home, it was actually the guy who came in and then he got injured, then hide came in. So I'm a little bit scared of homer taking Dallas as snaps. That's the only thing. But yeah, if Carson is out, he's probably got to be the guy who got to get and I'm I need to stream you this week because I've gascon and Henderson, so got my finger on the trigger waiting for Carson to be ruled out. Yeah, he's probably the best option. The other guys who are interesting Zach Moss against well, it's not really interesting, it's just he gets bulk red zone touches. He he rushed for eight red zone hit. Rushed in the Red Zone eight times in the first week of the season and last week he had six. So he can just occasionally be a red zone threat. And Yeah, he's got a low floor but he's got a high ceiling. So if you want to be risky there, if you want to just play it really safe, I'd go nigh. He behinds basically a lot to get four catches for like forty yards. So if you want to or get something around the ten point mark, go for hines. And then another guy with a pretty high flow is Damian Harris there against the New York jets. So if you think the Patriots are going to score all on the points, he's probably a good chance to run one in, so he could be worth a risk there. Wide Receivers. Yeah, I want to. I want to throw out Matt Breeder as well. Like, yes, he's Boris, but they've they've got no one else by Jordan Howard, who's strictly a goal line goal one man. So brader should get some decent work. Wide Receiver. Pretty Yuk to be honest. On the streaming side of things, you wouldn't really want to be starting this bloke. This is probably if you've got two or three injuries, but Cory Davis Against Chicago was like the best man I could find. I was going to say are you, but he's just been ruled out on the COVID list. So Cory Davis been copying some good targets. Tough match up, but I mean he's in that titans offense, so he should have some decent opportunity. Might score a touchdown and if they decide to lock down a J Brown, which they probably will, Davis might free up. So could be a decent play. Yeah, right, that Davis is definitely good option this week. This is a very rogue one, so you probably have to be in a deep league and you probably have to have two wide receivers and a flex, and this is probably a flex. But they're up against the JAGS and it's randall cold. I think Cook Cooks and fuller obviously the two main men there, but I think they're going to absolutely bombard the jags this week. Kind of worried what Deshaun Watson's going to do for your side, Pilch, I think he's want to the kill over that. But yeah, I was looking at the JAGS. They've the yielded the most a yards per tempt. They've conceded the fifth most points, but that is including a by so on average it's probably a even further up. The Houston don't care about game script. They throw whether they're up or down, and COBS or ten targets the week before the buy and he's copped a red zone target in one of each of his last two matches. So He's been very inconsistent and he's missed practice this week because he's sick. But if you need someone just as a really weird flex option, he could be a chance to put up some points. But yeah, we'll see how that one goes. A right last but all I it's I just thought of someone else. I'm not actually sure if he is in under sixty percent, but Marvin Jones. They're playing the playing the Vikings and Gola days out. So yeah, that's that's a good thing's on waivers. Definitely streaming red and some even Marvin and hall. But yeah, right, tight ends, tight ends. I've got Robert Tonyan. Yeah, Sam down here. The playing the niners, which isn't the best match up but, as we just spoke about, they'll be throwing the ball and out of all the blocks. On less than sixty percent of rosters, he was pretty much the only decent shout that I can find. So yeah, and I'll get you. I'd go snag him regardless because, just like going forward, I reckon he's pretty good shout at rest of the season. Yeah, he's been asked from twenty point seven percent of rosters this week after the seven target as he went, he scored...

...twelve against Minnesota. I'm so confused why. Yeah, still sees good volume. So he's a pretty safe streamer. A risky one, if you want to buy into it, is Greg Olson. He saw to red zone targets last week. SEAHAWKS are likely to put up thirty plus against the bills. And Yeah, Olson is one of Russ's favorite red zone targets. That is not like it. And Metcalf so limited volume. I don't think he's seen more than four or five targets a game, but high scoring potential. Yeah, that's all I've got for us today and anything I want to say before we go not that's it. That's it, all right, thanks for joining me, thanks for listening and enjoy the NFL week night.
