I'd cheese settle. Welcome back to the on the ball podcast. This episode eighty seven of the show. Almost getting to that ton we're only a few weeks away. Will be there before the playoffs, I think, because we'll be doing two of these a week. So excited for that one. But today back again with pilch. Today we're going to be discussing the week eleven fantasy world of NFL. Basically pilch. How are you today, mate? Yeah, good, man, good. Today is the is listening. Peaches had his camera on his midsection. Couldn't see his head stick good podcast. Gag that one, mate, completely visual, but now it's good. It is a good one. I'll give it about a six out of ten. I've seen that. I've seen that. But yeah, today, back again, doing similar structures, always by low, sell high and we've got a stream of section and we'll finish off with our quick fire starts its and basically who we prefer going forward. So looking forward to all three of those sections. Couldn't you can join me yesterday, but I explained why on the podcast. But glad to have you back. made it wasn't the same without you. So if you didn't see that, episode. Go back and check it out. I discussed week ten of the NFL. Talk a bit about the MVP race and some of the playoff hopefuls, but starting with the bylow cell high. Will Start, as always, with the quarterbacks. Who is your bylow quarterback for week eleven? Just quickly, make you looks like a rooster in the podcast yesterday. I've just seen it. I've just seen the preview on Instar and I look like a three out of ten Max. I'm talking straight nine, but thanks, man by by. Like qb this week, Ryan Tannehill scored ten last week against a very tough indie defense. He does have Baltimore and indie coming up and then he schedule opens up and I expect him to ball out after that, if not during those games. Yes, so he's just so efficient. He gets he gets, gets a few rushing yards, can get a rushing touchdown. He's just he's just a beast. Yeah, it's so. I have. I had drew brees to those who haven't listened to the podcast before, and I too are thankfully on my bench is back up, so I'm not in the worst pickle, but I'm going to try and look to get down of hill in as my qbtwo in our super flex league because, yeah, I think he would definitely be undervalued at the moment. Are you not getting a little bit concerned, though, because he has, I think he's had like five subtwenty schools in a roy or something like that. Is that concerning you or do you think you eventually just go back to yeah, the Tan as we expect and love? Yeah, I was. If you look through his scores, most of his big scores have been against pretty buck subpar opposition. But okay, but I mean so he might, he might struggle the next two weeks, is what I'm saying basically, but after that and into playoffs he's got a good schedule when, like, you'd expect him to average twenty are yeah, I think this was basically running theme of my research, that pretty much all the times players are a bylow for me at the moment, as you said, they do have a cuff top a tough couple weeks, but it's with the running game. The Ravens actually aren't too good on the running game. So Henry might get going and then all of a sudden the whole time's team gets going. That the colds after that will be tough. But yeah, as you mentioned in the ball I don't think you said the specific teams, but easy fixed around one of the playoffs. They've got the JAGS and the Lions. So this...

...goes for AJ Brown, Derrick, Henry Tanners, even Johnny Smith, if you need a tight end. I think they're all pretty sprissy prospects at the moment because you'd expect that times offense to pick up. Fully agree there. But yeah, I'm interested in talents, that's for certain. He hasn't been rushing as much as last year. I don't reckon I don't. Yeah, I like he's to get bulk rushing touchdowns and that will that's what made him so good. But yeah, hopefully starts doing that again. But he's good enough in the air to still be a relevant quarterback anyway without those rushing touchdowns. My bylow is actually my own quarterback to Shawn Watson, had a fourteen point twelve against the browns, but it's a bit misleading that score. The weather was absolutely crazy. I'm sure all fantasy nerds by now have heard that. Given the some of the passing, like some of the wide receiver and quarterback scores over the week. There's a lot of bad weather throughout the United States, but especially in Cleveland. There was a lot of wind. I was looking deeper into his stats and he I think he had a hundred and sixty yards from ten from twenty completions, thirty attempts, and over his career he's averaged over twelve yards per completion and on the night he was averaging around eight. So he was clearly because of the wind. He was looking like lower. He was looking for the small targets, which isn't really his game. So expect him to be back in the following weeks, back to his best of just firing big shots. The next two weeks he's got the Patriots the lines. I will admit he has a really rough especially the first week of playoffs. He's got a tough run there. I think he they play the colts. So potentially you wait for a big score in the Patriots and lines and then he could be mentioned in our cell high section. But for me he's definitely a bylow this week because I think that fourteen point twelve is definitely going to see him undervalued. Before we get onto your cell high quarterback, I would also just mentioned Russell Wilson. First subtwenty school all year, but it was against the rams, who are currently at the moment, probably the best passing defense in there in the league, and he's fixtured. Doesn't really open up. They've got some tough games. I think they play the giants, the Eagles and the cardinals and the next three, who are all pretty decent defenses in their own right. But he's still going to be a reliable quarterback one week in week out. But I don't think we can expect the thirty plus scores that he was pumping out the first month, but expect him to go back to his like twenty fives and stuff like that. So he's someone else. But who should very quarterback? Yeah, a hundred percent. Who's just so high? Yeah, so high. Actually kind of struggled with this section and I wasn't really many names that popped up, but I went with Teddy Bridge Water. He's he's just scored eighteen, I believe, which is decent, but he's stealing with a bit of an injury at the moment. He's questionable. I'm not sure if I think he's expected to play, but I don't know. I just think I think you could probably because he's average. He's average is still pretty high. So I think you could flip him for someone a bit better, like a maybe a Joe Barrow or Stafford or someone like that. Then I would do that, but I wouldn't really like being a rush to sell him. As I said, I couldn't really that was really on on the stood out to me. Yeah, now it's a fair it's a fair pick. You never really want someone with an injury cloud because they're usually going to play through it. But just because they're playing doesn't mean they're healthy. I think it's I think he's average is kind of higher than what what you could probably expect from him because he's average is like almost nineteen. Yeah, I think his first month is really first six weeks is carrying him up. Last month has been a little bit less impressive. My Cell High. Yeah, these two, I'll be honest. If you have them, they're kind of set and forget. So you're probably not going to sell them. But if you are a player, if you are...

...a fantasy player who's always looking for a Mac as little win, maybe you go sideways to a quarterback or and you try and upgrade somewhere else or something like that. But for me, my cell highs Aaron Rodgers. He's had three hundred and twenty five plus scores in his last four, but they have been in his last four. He's played at the Texans, the Vikings, the niners and the jags, who are, barring the Vikings, all bottom ten past defenses so far this season, and now he has the colts, the bears and the eagles, who are three like top ten defenses. So look, he's probably still going to be good, he's probably going to still put out qb one production, but potentially might be a little bit overvalued at the moment. So you could look to downgrade in a little and try and get it an upgrade in another position in that trade. But Yeah, look, I agree with you. There's not too any cell highs. Josh Allen someone else as well, but he's on his bi so he's valuably not that high anyway. But he's coming off a thirty six and a twenty seven and for me, the thing that scares me about the bills is they've in the first week of playoffs. They've got the steels and the broncos, so probably wouldn't really want him going into the playoffs as qb one, but they do have the charges and niners before then, so you could wait for another big score potentially and sees value increase even more. So, yeah, not too many cell highs, but yeah, there's some things to think about there before we get into our running backs. If you if you're new to the channel, feel free to subscribe, because we do this every week and it's always good fun and get around the episode if you're enjoying it all the clip, however, you're watching all listening running back by low, though I think I might have teased mine a little bit before. But who have you got here? Well, I've actually gone with the Bloke who just scored twenty six points, but I still think you can buy them load because he looks set to break out as a potential R be one going forward, and that's deandre swift. Started his first game of the season last week against Washington, who do have a good defensive line and a good against the run, and he absolutely tore them up. I think it was sixteen carries for eighty yards, six receptions and a touchdown or something like that. Twenty six PPR fantasy points, and now that he's the start he's he's going to have good enough of a workload that he's just going to ball out every week. I think he's going to be similar to miles sanders in the last portion of last season and he averaged luck close to twenty. So if you can, I'd say he's probably a back end R be one going forward, and I still think you can get him for cheaper than that. Just go hunt what everyone is not everyone atizes it yet. Yeah, and he's had like a he had like a one three weeks ago something. So if if you just look at the recent scores, you might think last week was just a fluke, but it was definitely not. Big Fan of the swifter. My bylow is Derrick Henry. He's I think he scored six last week, the week before last, sorry, and then scored eleven against the colts. He had over a hunt and the week before was against the bears. So two of the better run defense is going round. He had over a hundred yards on the ground against the colts at over five yards, but carry. So you certainly not out of form or bad. He just hasn't been getting the scoring that he usually does. But yet to score over ten points without a touchdown against the colts like that's pretty elite. But it just it's decreased his average overall and in the like I mentioned before, in the playoffs they've got the jags in the line. So yeah, Jackson, the lines for Derrick Henry over two weeks you're genuinely probably looking at fifty there, maybe forty as a minimum. But yeah, big weeks to be out there for Henry. So I'd be trying to jump on him. Sadly for us he's stuck in the team with someone who...

...doesn't play. But yeah, Derrick Henry's definitely a bilo. You had a crack at him too that the other day, didn't you? You had a JE I get derek a message him in the group Chat Kenan Allen for Derrick Henry. Obviously he's not going to I was a bit of a joke. No wonders at that. But well, also he's not going to look at it, but thought of he did laugh for at the message though. Yeah, it's good to see. Good to see. WHO's your cell high for the running backs? Yeah, so high. I've got to here Todd Gurley. I think he's been in this section for me before, but his average is still fairly high where you can get an upgrade out of him and then another one Nick Chubb. Nick Chub's a beast and probably an R be one, but I reckon. I think people think he's going to be better than he is for fantasy because he's pretty much splitting carries with cream hunt and he's going to be lucky to get one reception each week. So He's you're pretty much relying on him to pump out a hundred and twenty yards and a touchdown just to get you a good score. So I reckon you could. I reckon there'd be people out there that would you know, you could trade him for like miles sanders, Josh Jacobs, someone like that. That would be an upgrade, I reckon. Yeah, I was looking at his scores. Actually not that good, considering there was like a long a long range effort and it was a game that suited the running back. So yeah, I wasn't really that impressed with it. So yeah, I completely agree with you. There any any running back, no matter how good one, unless they're like Derrick Henry level, if they're not getting receiving yards, it's it's hard to back them in as an Arby one completely, my r be one, well, my rb sell high. Sorry, is Ronald Jones a bit of an interesting one. He is probably one of the most inconsistent blokes going around in terms of touches. He had twenty three carries, which is very promising, but he had a ninety eight yard td in there, which is sixteen points, pretty much just shorter sixteen points. And if you take away that, like I know it's pretty stiff to just take away a plate, but he didn't even crack ten. So yeah, I'm not really that and I think it was against the panthers, so one of the worst rush defenses in the camp. So I'm not that in pleased with Rojoe, even though twenty three carries is exciting, because he's been lacking in the last few weeks. But yet I'd probably steer clear of both temper running backs at this point. It's just so inconsistent who gets there, who gets the touches. But Yeah, for Me Rojo will definitely be overvalued this week. His average is still pretty high from that big stretch he had back earlier in the season. So I'll try and offload him at the moment and I'll I know they've already played the saints twice, but I don't know what they're fixed. Just coming up is like. But he yard be off floating Roacho and you cop that or cool, cool, cool, cool. Thanks, SA Go. Always pleasure to have your approval. Or onto the wideouts, the skilled men. Who's your wide receiver? By Low? Always reckon. There's a lot in the wide receivers. It was tough, tough to pick wide receivers. Always deep, but I think you might have this boke as well. But AJ Brown one hundred percent, the Impeton, a hundred percent the biggest bylow this week same, exact, same as what you said with tanners and Derrick Henry. They played indie. He dropped a sixty yard touchdown, which hurt because I have him, but he only scored three points, which means the owners will probably get a little bit scared. But he's definitely he's just an absolute beast and as soon as he gets past this Baltimore Indie he probably average thirty afterwards, just real off a DR plays. So yeah, I'd be I'd be throwing the kitchen sink atty, but you can definitely get him for cheap. Yeah, he's not even really he legit does well against good teams as well.

Like I was looking at his recent stats and yeah, decent numbers against like Pittsburg and stuff. So well, it takes him is just one player and he's and he's one year the week. Yeah, that's like what made him so good at the end of last year. Just fell like a seven yard td every week. But yeah, hundred percent. I was going to put him in but I had too many times players, so I thought I'd change it up. But glad that you mentioned him. My Guy is my man, DK metcalf. I don't actually think you could buy him that load, to be honest. I Think Everyone Frost Dk that much at the moment. But coming off a four point eight, got the glove to buy Jalen Ramsey, who's probably the perfect guy to glove met calf. I don't think anyone else in the competition could do a better job. So you can just look at that as a one off. Yes, I guess you can consider the fact that they play them in the fantasy finals, but that's a long way away and before then they'd play a couple tough defenses. But it's Seattle. You expect them to be putting up points every week around, you know, around thirty. So he's likely to be receiving one or two TD's a week. He's had great volume in the last six weeks, barring that one. So yeah, I'll try and get DEC had it but, as I said, I don't think stock is that low. Yeah, and then my other guy. This is debatable because there's he had less he's had he's least target since his first game of the season and that might be due to players coming back, but I'm going to put it down to James Bradbury being one of the best lockdown corners in the league. But Travis Fulgum, he had one catch for eight yards. Only call one point eight. But as I mentioned, James Bradbury absolute beast. He saw five targets. So Bradbury was causing him absolute habit there. But coming up they've got the Brown seahawks and packers. So although the eagles offense isn't really firing on all films as at all you'd ex you'd hope he goes back to his pre by form where he was consistently getting fifteen plus. So Travis could be probably a risky option, but someone you could look to get, because I think it's worthy of a starting spot in most lineups. They are you worried about Travis Fulgum or do you reckon she just James Bradbury? Bradbury would have had an impact, but I'm a bit worried. But he's definitely. Yeah, definitely drop down my rankings quite a bit after that. Like Jalen Rieger and the others coming back. He's pretty frightening for him. Yeah, the the best thing about full GAM is he's like whence his favorite red zone target? I think you still had one of his targets was in the red zone on the weekend. But yeah, hundred percent. A bit worried Jeffrey. He only had one target. He wasn't very quite awaken. Yeah, I think he's going to be pretty limited for the rest of the year, though, unless they step it up. But because he's so injury prone, I don't think he'll see many snaps. And then. Yeah, as you said, Riga got it coming back and then hurt's is probably going to be back this week, but I'm not sure it's going on another another thing is with sanders back, I think they're probably going to run the ball more. Yeah, that's true. But yes, so in probably one to keep an on. But I think if you want to risk it for the biscuit, could be. Could be an interesting pickup. But yeah, that had a bit of a stinker this week. WHO's your cell highs? Yeah, quickly, I just looked up the arm quarterback rankings and roads and Ramsey other top two ranked lockdown quarterbacks this season. So don't worry about Ajo Brown or DK. Yeah, they're going to be beast. They just they just copped a bit of a hard tag this week. The Boys, sorry, wide receivers so high tyler locket. Yet if you he's he's singlehandedly won you two games this season. But if you take those out, he genuinely averages about six points per game and more often...

...than not he's going to put you in danger of losing than he's going to win you the week. And he's averaging nineteen and every single week he's projected nineteen on ESPN fantasy, which is like in the top three wide receivers. So they'd be loads of people in your league out there who will just look at that and say, Yep, give me him, let me get him. So I'd be selling him. I don't hit. I wouldn't say as a wide receiver one going forward. He's probably maybe top eighteen ish something around there. But yeah, I'd definitely be looking to sell him. Yeah, I do not right, tyler lock it at all. As soon as you scored that fifty, I would have been looking to sell him every single week following that. I wouldn't have rested on my laurels. He is not really coming to my and now analytical consideration for like three weeks now. I just don't read them at all. So yeah, I a hundred percent agree with that. I think he's probably been a cell high like six weeks straight. For me, my guys, this is once again pretty tough. This guy's an absolute beast if froth them in terms of fantasy. But Stephan digs had an absolute blinder against the cardinals put up twenty five points. The week before he also put up twenty plus against Seattle. But this is once again due to the bills fixture in the playoffs. They have Pittsburgh and Denver in the first week of playoffs and look, Diggs is probably a reliable starter even against those tough teams. But I don't know if he's going to go big against either of those guys. So I think you could get him get quite a lot for him at the moment. So I'd probably consider him. And then my other guy was going to mention was Mike Evans. I just wouldn't really want to be taking Mike Evans into the playoffs with how inconsistent he is. He did see eleven targets against the panthers, which is a good sign, but only caught six of them. How to touchdown as well. Got The rams this week and so you wouldn't be expecting much there. And they've also got the buy to come. So I'd probably be looking to get rid of Evans. I don't similar to lock it. I wouldn't want him in my fantasy team just to volatile at the moment. Tight ends the position we know and love. Who Are you? Who Sho buy low here? May? I'm going with Hayden herst actually I was looking through his stats and he's flying under the radar. Last night he's been good this year, like I don't know how like I's been. He's like he's snuck up to like sixth or something in total points are. He's genuinely flying under the radar and he hasn't scored below ten points since week four or five and the last three weeks he's had seven targets, seven targets, eight targets. So he's a huge part of the Atlanta offense. He's pretty much like, not quite as good, but Austin Hooper. He bowled out for Atlanta last season, playing tight end for them. Yeah, and hers is doing a pretty decent job. So yeah, I reckon. He's a pretty reliable tight end going forward. So if you need tight end help, I'd try and get him. Yeah, a hundred percent agree with that. One hrst is definitely flying under the radar. Took my breath away when I saw him up there in the total points. But my tight and there's actually quite a few, the titans had a shocking week. Yeah, I think there was only three went ten plus or something like that. Is Crazy. But my guy is Evan Ingram. He's been killing it of late. He's had nine targets, ten targets, ten targets and then on the week an he went three. So I would just put that down to just random coincidence. They have the buy this week, so his value is going to be even lower. And then they've got the bangles and the seahawks, so pretty juicy fixtures there. And yet big Fan of Evan Ingram. So if you've got issues at the tight end position, I don't think there's been injuries of late. But I don't know if you if you don't really fancy your tight end all that much or you don't care about the position, you could downgrade down to Engram as such and upgrade somewhere...

...else in a trade or something like that. But yeah, I think engrim will be a little bit undervalued. I also think Hawkinson, if a owner is like worried about his three he put up on the weekend, he's someone else you could get pretty low value. And Mark Andrews is another guy. Yeah, he's been pretty inconsistent all year, but Nick Boyle went down for season, engine injury actually, and because they traded away Hayden Hurst last year they're now Andrew's is like the only non mythical tight end there and they froth tight ends at up Baltimore. So Andrews, his stocks have definitely risen in the last forty eight hours, in my opinion. WHO's your cell high here? Yeah, I agree with that. Andrews. He's going to ball out so high. I used to like this guy like a month or five or six weeks ago, but Hunter Henry, ever since they're buying week six as numbers have been pretty down. He's imaging like five or six points. Not many targets. But this past week he scored a touchdown and put up quite a decent score, but he still only had, I think, four or five targets. So he's someone that I'd probably look to sell like maybe try and sell Hunter Henry for Evern engram something like that. I reckon I'll be an upgrade. Yeah, pretty much everyone has benefited from Herbert except for Hunt Henry. He's douts taken a new king this season. I feel bad for him, but and they're also just giving other tight ends random opportunities, which you don't like to see. He's a fantasy coach. I'm actually I think this guy's seen in my cell Hart three times and at this point I think we can just say is good. But I'm sorry, man, I'm going to your man once again. Rob grunks before formally my man. But three targets. He had for three weeks ago as well. I just don't like his like a volume. He's basically a reliable td score at this point, though, so I guess you could say that, but I just don't really rate that at my fantasy players. So I would trade him because he's average is very high. He's got the name value as well as the GRONK and they've also got the rams this week and then the buy in two weeks so and the chiefs in between that. So pretty tough run of fixtures and I wouldn't unless you're locked in playoffs. I've probably wouldn't want someone with a by the week before playoffs because that could be a crucial fixture for a lot of people around a lot of leagues. So yeah, that's my cell high. So brother, I know he's your man. That's it for that section. Enjoyed it, as always. Any final words, or shall we get into US streaming? Streaming candidate? I'm yeah, I just want to say I've I do not feel safe at all owning the ground like every three these past two weeks I've just been petrified of him. Score Rom zero, but I mean he continues to have a big play here in there. So and they've got good playoff fixtures as well. Yeah, so if you're locked in playoffs. He could almost be a bylow, I guess, with those three targets. But yeah, streaming candidates, so people under sixty percent ownership on ESPN fantasy who we think could go well this week as a one off option. Qb streamers, always a strange position to stream. But who are you looking at here? And should I stream this week? Or is too are good enough to start? Who knows? But you? Who are you going with here? I reckon too is good enough to start, mate, but I'm going with Jameis Winston just because they're playing the single worst passing defense in the NFL in the Atlanta Falcons. Could not be a better fixture for him to come in. We're pretty certain he's going to be named starter. I don't think he's officially announced yet, but I'd be very surprised if he if Taysom hill comes down and starts. So, having said that, I think Jamis is a good streamer this week against Atlanta because like there's no way the saint...

...time going to put up points. So just because of that, Jamis will have to do pretty well in fantasy. Yeah, yeah, I don't know, I'm probably I hate risks in fantasy a lot more than you do. So I'm I'm steering clear. I had the opportunity need to pick him up yesterday, but I didn't because I didn't want that on my bench. Just a bit of an unknown quantity. But deaths definitely has a high ceiling. But yeah, for me they just rush a lot of their touchdowns in. But I think he will become best friends with Michael Thomas and Camara over the next couple weeks and he will be quite a reliable option. Actually, I reckon. But for me it's kirk cousins, probably a surprising streaming candidate because he does he's fond of a subtend school, but rostered in fifteen point seven percent of league, so low. But they play the cowboys, so that is what's keeping me in it. The cowboys actually don't have the worst past defense statistically, but they're so bad against the run and they have conceded the most points since the start of October that I think down and cook is going to have a field day and that's going to help play action, that's going to help Kurt cousins get yardage and it's going to see them in the red zone a lot more than they have been in the last couple matches. So I think kirk cousins will definitely throw a couple TD's unless down then steal them all and he will have a nice yard. It's per completion rate which will see him scored decently. I reckon. Ye, always a little bit of risk involved with Kirk cousins, but for me he's the option. I've heard a lot of people say Alex Smith projected. I think he's the highest guy in our wave a while. He's projected really high. But for me that's too much of a risk. But they do love throwing it. Now they've got Alex Smith at quarterback, so guess he could be another option. But yeah, I'll probably steer clear of him. But that's just another guy. If you needed another name running backs, who if you got here running backs, I've gone with the man you've just picked up and I believe you're streaming this week, Calyn Balash. It's not a stream, mate, he is. I'm writing them out. All right. Well, we'll say it. We'll see if me get some some carries when eckler comes back. Now I'm mad. Now, mate, I remember Echelo last year when Melvin came back. Equlo just like he still was good in fantasy. But Get Gordon got enough touches to do well. So I'm confident in the belt, whatever his name, and apparently Anthony Lynn came out this morning and said he's in for more touches this week and him they reckon. They're going to try and make him a compliment to ECHO's game. But yeah, I agree with the great streams week. Why are you saying, Josh, what do you like? In this week? Josh Kelly was getting like fifteen carries. You find the side so strange. Rajah will get some opportunity, but I'm yeah, I mean he's going to have the pretty much the backfield. He's going to be the Mang Guy there this week. So apparently is massive. I haven't seen heard he's pretty large or like solid. I don't know which, which, which way they met massive. I forgot how they're playing. Who they playing? I'm the jets. Yeah, see, yeah, he's probably gonna have to play him, which isn't pretty, but he's he would be a pretty safe stream this weekend. Suggests like he'll. He's got the Backfield to himself. Clocks and I'll probably get a few carries, but he's pretty as safe for twelve points. Yeah, it's just a matter of yeah, I think he's got a nice floor, which I like to see. So I appreciate that. Shoutout mate my made. My Main Guy in this section is Nihim hines. Just love what he does in the receiving part of the game, similar to jade mckissick. Just means he has a really high flow and I think actually picked him as a streamer two weeks ago and I didn't pick him last week, which is the week he did well. So maybe don't stream him because he seems to not like being shouted out as a streaming candidate.

But against the Times he had twelve carries, seventy yards, almost six yards per carry. He also had a rushing touchdown. Jonathan Taylor's slowly being phased out of the offense here. I think you only had twenty five per cent of snaps or something. So hines are slowly becoming the main man there and they're against the packers defense that isn't too good in the air or on the ground. The Games group probably won't suit, but with a with the running back who loves to get involved in the passing game, I don't think the game script is that important because he's probably going to get more targets if they go down early. So he's my man. And then another guy, risky option because he's very inconsistent, but REX burkhead killed it the other day against the Ravens. Can't don't remember who they're playing, but I think they've got a fairly easy fixed Houston. Yeah, easy. Probably the worst rush defense next to the cowboys. And if you're backing he won't get all the carries because Damian Harris is there, but if you like him for a touchdown, well then he's probably going to go well. so He's another option. Wide Receiver. Who Have you got me? Yeah, the wide receivers with under sixty percent or normally pretty ugly. But Christian, sorry, Jacoby Myers, hand is he is still not getting picked up. I think this week he'll people start to get him. But Um, yeah, he's been really good last month or so. He's Newton's number one man. Been Bawling out and pretty juicy match up against Houston as well. So he's a pretty safe stream and he should be rosted in over sixty percent of the leagues. That's pretty pretty disgusting. Yeah, I don't know why it's not, to be honest. He also threw a touchdown on Monday or Sunday, so he's got that in his locker as well. But yeah, now here's my stream as well. Easily the best option over sixty percent. Yet under sixty percent, the next guys were like Randall, Cobb and stuff, who could put up zero quite comfortably. So yeah, Jacoby by far and away the best streamer in pretty much all leagues. Yeah, currently see a world where he goes below ten. To be honest. I probably Chingston there, but locked in for seven plus targets if he's match and for yeah, he's getting ten. So yeah, I like Myers, definitely is this streaming option. Tight end, I've got Logan Thomas. I actually said this black last week and he ended up being one of the few quarterbacks tight ends to go above ten. So I was happy with that call, but I'm going to get on him again this week. Just he gets bulk targets and now that Alex Smith is under center, he's actually getting more yards per reception, which was his main issue prior to Alex Smith coming in. He used to average like five yards perception. But on the weekend he was up over sixteen. He had six targets for the second week in a row. He's actually starting to become a pretty reliable tight end. Just doesn't have the scoring potential to make him a starter, but yeah, he's a solid stream if you have someone on the bi or something like that WHO's your tight end streamer. Yeah, I'm also going the same drives. Last week Dallas got it still isn't over sixty percent rostered. He's he had having he had a decent amount of targets last week for catches for thirty yards. Man Not Great, but the Wents does love his tight end, so I'd expect him to improve and given that the tight end is so ugly, I'd say is a pretty good streamer any week. Yeah, so I like that option as well. Are you concerned about him or not really in terms of like actual starter? Well, he's probably not a top rob tied end like I thought he was going to be last week, but like he's odds, he's still pretty decent. Yeah, because there's not many tight ends that are going to be better than him. Yeah, I agree with you. Or Right. That moves us into your favorite section. I can see the smile already coming up. On our starts it, I'll...

...start sits lash. What's the other wards? Just best, best of the rest. Best for the rest of the season. If you have any questions about starts it's or who we prefer going forward, feel free to comment it. We've had a few comments over the last week we've been frothing it, so feel free to do that and also subscribe. Why you add it or I'll start with you rest of the season. This rest of the season. I'll start with the quarterbacks. Jamis your man, Jamis Winston, or Danny diames Jones? Well, this actually it's not that relevant really, because most leagues are qb one, but still we're still I'm playing to qb league. They were both on the waves this week and I picked up Jamis as my qbthree. Think you just has a bit more upside, but it's pretty even. If you if you badly need a quarterback, I'd go with Danny Jones. Yeah, all right, fair enough. I agree that. I'll probably take Danny Jones, but they as well take Jamis this week and then see how he goes and then Danny Jones is off his by next week. If he's available still went or Stafford? Stafford, definitely. I'm never like the that's the rogue opinion I reckon. I haven't been a fan, I don't know, all year. I just don't write him. And he scored eight. I think they struggled against the giants this week. I'll just Stafford's just a better quarterback in real life. So I think it'll be more reliable staffords. Under an injury cloud, though, but that is that is true. That is true. So bewaring, he's got a slight tear and his thumb, which is, I think the same thumb that he's had broken in the past or something like that. Or running backs. WHO HAVE I got here? Juke Johnson or chase edmonds? You're too all looks. You're looking to offload this week. But who would you rather have going forward? That's hard because Duke Johnson's going to be a lot better until David Johnson comes back. So I guess if you kind of depends on your situation a bit. If you need if you need running back help in the short term, definitely Duke Johnson, but chase edmonds will be like consistent, ten to twelve average for the for the rest of the year. So probably overall, chase edmonds. Yeah, I agree that I've got chase above him in my rankings this week or going forward, Clyde Edwards Hill are or Todd Gurley, not a girly fan at all, I'll go. I'M gonna go with Clyde. Numbers have been very worrying the last few weeks, but I feel like. I feel like when they start playing better teams, mahomes isn't going to be able to just take the PISS and just throw or game. They'RE gonna have to go back to the run game and Clyde's definitely their main running back over left bell, so he he'll improve. I reckon. Yeah, and girly does have the saints twice three weeks. Who are and Tampa twice. Nates it saints and Bucks, the top three running defenses. Say It's actually the best. They overtook the colts on the weekend in yeah, that's pay tempt since the start of October, so they're flying. So yet maybe steer clear of toddy there or wide receivers. Michael Thomas or DK metcalf both had underperforming scores on the weekend. But who prefer going forward? That's a good one. I'M gonna GO WITH DK. I've still I'm just there. Still like signs with Thomas and drew brees just got injured. I know we bought out with bridge order as well last season, but you definitely rather breeze be the quarterback there. It's just a bit of uncertainty. That is an ideal. Metcalfs and absolute beasts. I'll go with him. Yeah, I'm back in metcalf there as well. Terry, Micklove and MC Lauren or tyler locket Terry easily. Terry. Terry's at the great there's a top ten receiver. God, yeah, like that one. And the battle of the rookies. For me these...

...two are probably well, they're not going to win it because the quarterbacks a winner, but for me these two are probably the most impressive rookies of the season. But Justin Jefferson and t higgins were. Yeah, I got Justin Jefferson, I think. Yeah, I think they're the best. To claypool. Might have claypools in the conversation as well. Get the true but I've got a very I'd go Jefferson, Higgins Claypool in that order. Yeah, I like it. All right, my start and sits for weeks in or the heart rates already increasing. Hemate, take it easy on me. So I've got I've got two of our men here, Duke Johnson versus the Patriots, or Calyn balage versus the jets. It's actually tough, isn't it? I'm probably going to go blage just because I didn't like Duke Johnson Start Line last week. It's pretty ugly that. Yeah, Patriots are Patriots are a better d but they're actually citistically not too bad against the run. And although the jets are good against the run, they can see a lot of points. So you'd expect balage, little ballage, or whatever his name is, to have a few cracks in the red zone. So Yep, I'll very kalen. Fair enough there. All right, we got Pittsburgh v the jags this week. James CONNART versus James Robinson. Or that that's actually so rough. James conn has been in shocking form the last fortnight. He's been really struggling, but the defense is, though. That's actually take. James Robinson still is actually aren't too good against the run. So but yeah, game script will probably not suit Robbo, but I reckon. That means he gets a few cats and connor, look, he might get more touches, but if you didn't do well against the bangles, this is probably a similar game script going here. So yeah, taking Robbo just I'd probably agree Robbo's robos safer and he's better. Yeah, all right, a j brown versus the ravens, or chase claypole versus the Jaguars. That's so hard play that I'm going Brown. I don't like risk playpled way to risky at this point is probably not actually that risky. Is that good? But yeah, I'll probably pass and I'll back in a J brown. I think you can pencil him in for ten to fifteen, whereas Claypool could put up a five and I don't really want to borrow that. So yeah, yeah, just if take take the more talented receiver if you're if you're in a pickle. Yeah, agree with there's are your two men. I think you've I think I know who you're going with, but kirkly, the Seahawks, or cooks me the PATS Hey, I've I was telling you this yesterday. So those listening, I've got Mike Williams, brandon cooks Christian, Kirk and DJ more, and they've all got like they're all against like the top the top five worst past defenses. Is Honestly going to be a nightmare to see who I get to see. Who I start? Oh Way, who's cooks playing in the Patriot patroots? And Kirk? Yeah, Kirk has more ceiling, but I've probably just got to play it safe and go cooks, although he's probably going to be on the good cornerback. I forget his name. I've forgotten his name, but joke now, Jason Jackson, I think. Yeah, but yeah, I'll probably go cooks. Just surely fuller gets most of the attention? Yeah, you'd think so. But yeah, yeah, I'll go cooks their way. Who is who is co playing inst the see the out of the worst, worst one. They'RE gonna school like thirty plus points. Realistically, Kirk's going to score more, but like it's there's this bigger chance of him going like sub fives. I'll probably bitch and go cook so the tough on, Ma, tough on. Yeah, it actually is tough. And Kirk explaining tomorrow as well, which makes it even harder. But yeah, all...

...right, last one, Robbie Anderson versus Detroit or Chris Godwin versus the rams. Oh my God, that is so rough, because I was about to say I don't rate Robbie Anderson at all, but then the rams quarterbacks, they're something else for out I. Yeah, Look, I've got to go Robbie Anderson. I just don't like the Rams quarterbacks matchups. After we saw what they did against seahawks. They are wore the I awarded them yesterday defensive players of the week. Both of them killed lock at metcalf. So yeah, the me got it back in Robbie Anderson against the lines, but that's a tough one. That is hard. Yeah, I'd probably, I'd probably agree to go and ran. The Rams are a scary defense these days. Yeah, so all we've learned from these starts it's that I'm a bitch and I just take take the least risky option. I just take you have had the high, higher average. But yeah, I don't like risk. But if you're if your teams look not looking good and you need a high scorer, maybe go the opposite everything. I just sat there. But yeah, feel free to leave all your comments and stuff way.
