All right welcome back to the one Balepodcast feels a bit weird in trying this one, because we have US finishedit another episode, but we're back this time for NFL fantasy in particular, joined by the usual suspects Pichincha,and what we're going to be doing today is going through the four main fantasypositions and chatting about whose stock has risen in our eyes and WHO's.This fallen before we get into that, though, we'llhave a little bit of a fantasy wrap up from the weekend pitch. How did you was going to say ateam name? Obviously can't how is your as on the weekend pretty dog shit until Monday nightfooty, where I had Aaron Jones and he's put me from average score to the second icescore, and I got the dub over the worst waring. Our wedding socan't complain yeah. We know yeah fair enough. Therewas a period there where I think it was about like maybe the do. They say threequarter time in L. Well, I'm actually confused yeah. They do at the end ofthe third quarter. In the first time, like your team was looking great andthen it all turned around the Cincinnati. Boys got a few touchdowns,your Cincinnati, wide receivers and then yeah your fortunes change fromthereon and everyone started doing decently. But yeah you ended up gettinga great school because Aranjo es gone massive. I think it was legit roundthree, maybe last year where, where you when massive as well, so he loves theseearly season PROAS and the same teams as well jus. What has that, like H, has he risen in your rankings?Or are you going to look to us mis trade bat this week,...

...both he certainly risen, but I think he'llbe also a good trade. Bat Yeah, fair enough. I ould definitely mean batinghim out after what we saw last year, but a Donna get in your head. As youare better than me Kurt. How did porn star Jimmy Fair this weekend, silly question mate, then brake hundred lost made some saucy trades during theweek. Didn't pay off just just it's Don a talk about it. It just itjust hurts man, it's still very early in the seasonthat and you've got a good team they're, just not performing at the moment mate.So I think you'll be right. I think everything will come together. We doonly have ten people in our league, six of the Nahe Finals, so you've just gotto get in there. I myself had a very dodgy victory andI'll be the first to admit undeserved. I think I got about the third low scoreand I won by about twenty. So that's why ses it all? My opponent doesn'thave the finest team and Tis lineup selection wasn't great. I think heactually had Hollywood Brown on the bench and I think if he started him, hewould have got the DUB but yeah so I'll come blessings as last year. Those werethe sort of games I would drop. I would play a team who does really bad andthey would be when I'd have my worst weeks. So thankfully I've avoided thatone this year and I've gone to an O, but yet notconvincing at all. For me, pretty much all my players this weekare in the fall, so that's always good to see from your side but yeah themisshus milk man were to an o, but yet not going as smoothly as the recordsuggest, but yeah there was some outrageous trades. Last week, I'm notgoing to go through them all, but like genuinely out of probably the topthirty players in fantasy, probably half of them shop teams. Last week out,our league was very, very toy and we...

...love to see it once again, I'll just say how many ofeach position we have when we go through them, but before we get intothe cubs, we have two in our league. Obviously Super Flex League. So wemight say some that might not be relevant to one QB leagues, but juststay with us for the course I'll start us off to get us into the room. A thingI've got my little cheek sheet here. So I don't mind me if I'm just walkingdown, but my first riser is Tom Brady. I have to say never been a fan of thisman in fantasy because I love a juel threader. I love someone or Jo, theninsane ither, if like Carson once and James Winsen at my team, but I had himat number eleven before this week and he's had twenty red zone attempts intwo games and last year he had eighty four red zone attempts for the wholeseason. So I was talking to you boys about it off air and I think that humanerrands are, they have they're, making a deliberate ploy to go for thetouchdown season record. I think it's like fifty five or something I thinkPayton Manning holds it and, at this rate, he's going to get there prettycomfortably, obviously an extra game as well and he's going at seventy fivepercent in the red zone, which is pretty outrageous. I think everyoneelse is below sixty so yeah Tom Brad is looking frightening right now.Obviously, the quarterback for one of the best teams in the League and ifthey're not rushing in Ted's, it's a pretty nasty fantasy recipe. So he'sgot to go up and by rankings this one's an interesting one, I'm sort of I'msure if I lick my call because he I think his completion percentage on theweekend was about fifty percent and people are saying our last year was afluke but Josh Allan at the Buffalo Bills Item at number, seven headinginto the weekend and he's probably going to go out for me and that'spurely because I think he's up to like six red zone rushes for the year andthat's that's three on average and...

...about twenty to thirty percent of red,some rushes, a TV so almost locking in one rushing t d a week which, as wehave learned in Josh Allan's past, is absolutely o p because he can throw itlike a lot of running cubes can't and yes, I just think he's a bit of awet. But I don't know people saying he's not playing that. Well, he hasplayed two very good defenses while on paper, but yeah we'll have to see onthat one kid me falls. I have to say obviously my name- man, James Winston,didn't I'll be honest, didn't buy until last week at all, but I still had himvery high from preseason. I didn't adjust my rankings last week, so Icouldn't bate him away with his five touchdown performance because I had himhigher than everyone else, which was a bit of a trap. For me, I had him atnumber. Ten and yeah. Look is just not not number ten is, I think, you'restill going to have a few good games here or there as got a good coach andall that stuff, but yeah. I think there's going to be quitea lot of stinkers in the mix, which is pretty annoying for me, because Ithought I'd stolen a qb one from the draft and it looks like he could bewaver worthy and then finally duck press cot. I love this bloke. He was mynumber two heading into the weekend, but yeah, unfortunately, footpost Jimmyand other Duck Prescott owners. The cowboys run game, look up, lookedabsolutely phenomenal. The oline looked incredible and Iwouldn't be surprised if we see a lot more running from the cowboys with thePol, ARD and Elliot Double Headed Monster. I looked at the red zone ratioand it was about one to one passing to running and yeah. That's. I still thinkit's going to be a very good quarterback in fantasy. Definitely acub one, but I think number two might be a little bit of an overshot for duckand he's owners. But yes, Curtis, Cuberises and falls...

...rises had marry. The man just keeps getting get up, it'sprobably the best pub in fantasy as we as we talk right now. He was a late last year and you justseemed particularly getting better and wasn't that my man who loves to Sen mybench Donald, the man looks like you might be a consistent beast this year,point out the the Middie teams, which is not great,but it's not not bad at all, and to be honest, when you play fantasy and youhave a Qb to you, would I personally love a consistent tube that that canjust pop point on the board for the folds I had my man back and absolute joke inperformance pulled out single figures for me and then Al had my other TB inTrebas he's not what fantasy pro said in being cub fifteen on pr and he lookslike he might be more like a Qb in the mid of high twenties. So he sucks is Yo, not looking great for him at themoment. Yeah, I don't know that's why I just don't like old rookies. I knowtheir value, but you never know what you're going to get picos yeah rise is going to have to go LamarJackson and then Sam Donald as well. Actually do I think he is a good qb,absolutely not, but does he have McCaffrey and Dj more at his disposal?Yes, so that's just going to Tastin take to translate to points so takethat riser yeah, fair enough who you falls men allI and my fall or I've got just to a...

...yes. He got injured so to be of a copout, but like I just don't really write them at all thing. I said it last weekas well. Just think he stinks yeah, pretty harsh but yeah he or lineshit and yeah. It's a looking good for to at the moment as a fantasy prospect,Donald's schedule upcoming is also pretty spicy, so he could be one to getyour hands on and to Cuby Leagues, don't think he's relevant in one QBleagues, but play on Yeah Ran Ramba yes year. Has He even cracked twenty, yet no yeah, but o early, a so he's beenhe's been bought a against some real good teams? Okay, you know what he doesmake. You know he just passes at five maters to McCaffrey more and then theytake it and that's what we eat in in ten. Istill scored twelve saint. So Sad, I e anyways. He he's under rise boy, he'son the right, yeah right, we'll back you in there running backs I'll. Letpilk start this one off right rises, two men here, Aaron Jones and DerekHenry. I was actually way too low and Henry last week and he's showed me upwith forty seven. So it's obviously a top top three running back and then Aaron Jones as well, and thenfallers. I've got Camara just purely because what I said in theother episode that the Saints Offense just stinks Winston's, barely chuckedup over a hundred yards in each of his first two games and as a running back, you need a goodoffense to get points and Camara is not one of those work. HORSES THAT PUMPSOUT THIRTY CARRIES A game, so he needs some solo q b playing to get him hispoints...

Zake as well. Just because it he's notgetting the work load, we thought and then clarin quite Edward's a lair justbecause he sticks lo potential worst running back of all time. You're such a dog it. So not! I sowrong. Yeah, like I like him, but come on, getgood. That's that's at right! Well, it'spretty hard to tear a pretty Folco when you're playing a tin, the most talentedor epitimus. I'm just struggling to accept that one really. I agree with you call about Camara. Ithink, he's a bit of a Spicy Bilo though, because I'm sure and he's goingto get that many catches, but yeah now yes, touch down scoring threat isdefinitely a worry. Durell Henderson loved this bloke did last year. Didthis year trading away before week, one I had himas my number sixteen, but interestingly, the rands haveactually run it more than they've thrown it in the red zone. The Red Zonecarries his up at about eighty percent, so I think Michelle's volume willincrease as he gets more used to the offense, but he's saying sixty eight percent ofsnaps. I just think yeah Henderson's beast and I reckon he's definitely oneof the better Arby twos you could get going and I feel like he's not thatwell known like it, doesn't have a big name value or anything. So if you havepeople in your league, you are just casual fancy players I feel like youcould rip them off. My Fall Es Dallin Cook. This is probably an interestingone. But item is my number three on into the weekend. My issue here is they don't seem to beas reliant on the run as they once were, and they've got a new offensivecoordinator and kirk cousins has actually been playing really well so...

...yeah, I'm worried he's not going to getthe volume that he has in previous years. He's only had four red zone carry sofar across the two weeks. Game script has not suited them at all, and I don'tknow if it's going to continue to suit them, because I don't think they have agreat team and he's still a running back one and I'm not even sure if hedrops in my rankings. It's just, I think, a bit less of him after thisweekend and then finally say Quan Barkley. I still had them a u before,but like he's just not like at this point, I don't think he's an army one.It sucks to see his tap count was sixty seven percent when he was at his best.It was up around a D eighteen. Ninety he did look better in week to than weekone, but I just don't think he has the volume right now to be top five, eventop ten. So yeah it's going to be a hard one, because I don't think anyonewould be king to trade with you if you own Squan, but yes, it's a tough one.There Curtis I'm Goin to start with ELA the man returned to the receivingrunning back, based that he is, he had nine nine of nine or sixty one yards onthe weekend and if you can mix it up with that seventeen rushes he had inthe first week. I think he had he could actually be even better thanwhat I had him on the board, which was six. So I think he eeds a riser,especially for this week. I believe they play the chiefs and the best wayto keep the chiefs offense and the raps is to kick them off the field. So Ithink the run games couldn't be hugely this week. For them, I've also got a large, a Mitchel as well. In my rises, the man did have a Stinger and ashoulder injury. This week was taken off, but did come back on that lastlast quarter. The reason I do have him in the risers is sermon is injured. Onconcusion protocol out for the week...

...we have hasty who had an ankle injurysuspected be out for a large portion of the season, so I don't know who they just signed fromthe practice e wasn't from the Pratica. It was from the Cincinnatis print squad,but it seems a telage certainly might be the main man at San Fran. If he canget up this week for the full. This had the single manin clide. I think ply isn't that bad running backlike colour saying, but I think if your fantasy manage your own incline, yougot to have your alarm bells ringing, because the simple fact is he's notgetting the volume and he, if you compliment with the fumble he had andthe poor Yarpe carry a it's a significant intern, so yeah. If I had the employs, I wouldbe trying to offload him for the best possible price. I can get ye agree with those one. I swear likeeclairs. Catching skills are ridiculous. Like some of the catches here with downthe weekend, we, like a God, did the notice son carry on Johnson or was thatanother team I saw that he got added o. It was some I'll get it out. It's alittle fancy name from the Cincinnati Bangles practice squad yeah, I can'tcan't say, know who it is but yeah carry on sign for someone- and Iremember thinking like well- that's interesting but don't remember who itis, but we'll keep on rolling here the widereceiver stock. So I actually found this one really hard to do. Falls thereweren't too many that dropped in my rankings, to be honest, but there were definitely some rises. I had Mike Williams is the number oneriser I had them at number. Twenty eight I'vebeen trying really hard over the first two weeks to get him into my team, butthe owner won't budge and fair enough.

Last year he had eighty five targets infifteen matches this year. Twenty two targets in two so looks like his role:they're using him a little bit differently. His yards put capturesdown significantly so last year. He was sort of they confined him to pretty much a bigplay player when they needed a big yard and all they could see a potential bustin the coverage they go to him. But now it looks like he's just a genuine widereceiver to for them and he's going to get a lot more volume and with hiscatching skills. That's a pretty lethal combo he's also only one of fiveplayers to have five or more red zone targets, so Herbert likes, picking him off in the end zone. Myother riser is Chris Goblin, Christopher of the Temper Baybuccaneers. We were talking the other day about the fantasy value of the buccaneersplayers and some of them it's on ideal, like I'm, not a big fan of Evans or AB,just because they're inconsistent, but when it comes to some of the otherstheir offense. Is that good, it's hard not to you know, get luire into their ability.Chris Goblin nineteen targets across the two weeks. Only thirteen catchesyou'd expect that to flatten out over the season, he won'tbe doing that CACHAT for the rest of the year had five red zone targets.Yeah, I reckon is a top ten receiver this year, the way Brady's justthrowing that many nuts around my falls isn't mentioned. It was tough, so I'vegone kind of mythical, actually, first one, not mythical brand, and I Yuke Idecided to stick the faith last week. Didn't want to overreact to one weirdperformance, but yeah looks like they just hate him. Nowhe was my humes. Sixteen going into the season, he's had two targets and twogames and his stuff couts actually still pretty decent. It's like mids, nyeah, I just don't know, what's going...

...on there he's not being tided at all.They will they're looking to prefer trench Shir field and all these otherpeople, and it's just strange foe because he was sick last year. So He'sobviously done something to piss off the coaches but yeah if you're afantasy owner of a you pretty tough times and then another one. I know this because I have them in myown side and that's mark has calloway a lot of haparanda coming into the year aD he was my number thirty coming to the weekend, but six targets and two gameshe's going to cop the number one cornerback every week, till ThomasReturns and Winston's averaging like twenty one attempts, so there's justnot enough volume there for any saints receive at the moment and yeah. It'sjust he's not really relevant and fantasy. At the moment, Cotis Wireceivers, man, I've quite a few rises to be fat. First one going to go with cup. I mean the man being bowling and Idon't see it stopping at nine catches for a hundred and sixty three yards twot days bollet in the first week ball out again the second week and, as Ijust said, I see continuing was had locked it. I traded him before the season evenstarted for Cole one of the dumbest things I've done because locket hasbeen absolutely bolling. It had eight catches hundred and seventy eight yardsfor a day as well and yeah serious, serious upside doing. My think and yeahhe's rocking in up my board in terms of fanity rankings was had willians, asyou said, before, Cork Man's being bowling and yeah I'd love to get him aswell to be faith and another one. Second be man in Pitman, the man hadeight catches for a hundred and twenty...

...three yards, and I think he's done ashow off that talent that he definitely has, and I think he could be a bit of asteel if someone has seen on this bench on their bench, sir, and then for thefold I'd a betty who I had in the rises. Last week, two point: Seven points had one catchfrom three ties and seventeen yards just massive concern with volume. As I said last week, he still like doeslook like the AB of old, a s there's just too many heads to feed in thatoffense and to be fair, even even inclusive, of Godwin and grown. I thinkyou got to be pretty careful with all of them just because one week they could have massimos andput up twenty placin the next week. You can be expecting a sub five, so yeah, just real careful with all ofthose Tampa plays yeah shout up to a b one of the Sol reasons I got up infantasy this week, so she is brother. I tell you what, though lockets onFraud Watch. I don't know if anyone saw this, but their little fake, hail. Maryat the end is one of the most disgusting STAP patting moves. I'veever seen. Obviously the titans set up in the endzone and they were just like not we're getting lock at a cheeky forty yardsher and a catch no chance of scoring and Yeah Wilson and lock at are on FroWatch pitch who your wide receivers. Men marise was caught on Suttin hundredfirst game without judy hundred and fifty yards and can't see why the man's not going to bea w one while studios out. We all know how talented is and he's showed it, andthen my full are same with Kurt Ab. Think everyone just jumpin done and yeah it's just going to be a differentweek, whichever wide receiver balls out...

...and that offense. So I would beavoiding it, but Chris Godwin, who is the only consistent player in thereyeah? That's that's why I'm glad I didn't tink of my rankings after week,one because Shet like that. I took a ticklin nuts and they choke you, but bythe way curse you ended up getting city lamb for Olio. So did youbasically went lock it to lamb? So I didn't even know if it's like a loss sonow, but I went, I went Hallo and then I went yeah. You ended up O you doctfirst way: Yeah for one week, yeah we or relax you got see. Yeah was everyweek matters when you're Owin to mate. Mate might may co fine brother you'regoing to e fun. You actually lie you worried about thereal NFL on to starts, but it just doesn't a lot of fantasy that you'regoing to be right about four blokes in our league. Don't Eveni know what NFLis you'll be de a a right, tidende, always tough, because no onereally cares about the Sadens. My Ri actually we'll go to Cotis. First Riser God be Hockins, the man isbowling and the entirely of that lines. Offense goes through that man, so hewill be continuing to ball and he might be the most consistent tight end in theleague at the moment and going into the future seems like can might be a consistenttwenty, given that entire offense is on his back and the fall is going to becan be. For me, Hi said last week that he thought hecould be a serious. I don't know if he said it in the body but definitely saidoff off the pody arm that he thought he'd be, might be a titan ten, this topten this year and the man had one fay,...

...one one catch for a yeah. So if youhave I alarm bell ring you met, I'm not off, he be I'm not off him. I'mnot giving a Totin that I recals against the cold man this see, but no it could be a worry. What is aworry but like I'm, not losing faith just yet, but it is for a watch. Howdid Carl pits go this week? You're happy with that pick mat to main herise. No, I ailie in the targets across the two weeks on it his targets andgoing up nate he's he he's taking over. I think it's what Hurst, so man he's a.He can be a bowler, a Nancanou for and don't want to hear anything else aboutit. Chet was hot. I am games groups unreal or for him to be fair, butexactly exactly that Mat Ryan has to throw it to the people with the sameJersey as him. I not the others, did diny watch miked up from week, onebecause if so, I don't know why you saying Howk just reminded me the newlines, coach, absolutely cook, o like what a Manda, what a man a IRAhypoalbuminemia, I don't know how he walks away from a game with a voice isscary, but yes, anyway, my tie ends. I know youboys, don't like him, but my rises. The group for Red Zone targets here was mynumber ten going into the week. He had fourteen red sod targets. All oflast junes already had four. As I've mentioned, the whole podcast, I thinkBrad is gone for that record blatantly and who's his favorite red zone man.It's your boy. Cronk he's also had thirteen targets, which is pretty handyjust across the whole ground. Don't get fooled by his average, though, becausehe's currently catching out. Ninety two percent, which is unsustainable. Thesecare average is about sixty five, so...

...keep that in mind, but I just thinkhe's tired and prowess, and I know you don't like a tight end who relies on atouchdown to do well, but he's getting enough targets and I think, he'stouchdown to going to be a common. I don't even think it's a bad play if youdon't have one of the big boys, unfortunately, with the Grand Tho, hisfantasy values, sort of higher because he's a well known name, especially nowleague. That's what something's work so yeah. It might be tough to get him butdefinitely think he's undervalued. While I on the value matten and then myfaller is my boy, George kiddle last week, I just put it down to a bit ofrast and all that this week, whole San Fran offense, barring Debo, looked likeabsolute nut. Sir. He was my number two. This week is definitely going belowWalla, potentially below others he's had nine tarets and two weeks. I don'tthink it's going to be bad, like I still think he's a solid chance ofbeing top three, but I think the gap between him and the rest is going to bea lot lower. This year, I think he's going to be cut, he's going to comeback to the pack and Kelsen Wall or sort of going to be on their own he's, had no red zone targets yet and yeah. It's just not fun, not fun.At the moment for a George piddle owner, the only positive is, I don't thinktheir reliance on Demo. Samuel is feet like I don't think it's sustainablehe's had like twenty targets in the next most is actually kiddle with nine.So I think eventually, there's got to be someone else who stands out from thecrowd. Hopefully it's kid or could be. I you could be anyone of beet right nowseeing friend could be Mitchell as he is a running Bakari this week, but I won't laugh because it's legit fastdid see. Hasty was out for this weekend. German, yes, sermon can cast ye likeplay three or something and men the man gets one touch and eCode Yeah. That's the only reason which...

...all came back because there was no oneleft. They even s like forced to play and he was still injured, but yeahanyway, that I feel about for same friend. The injury like right now iscooked, but hopefully kiddle starts lifting his game. Pilch Chin ends myfriend yeah. I must say it's actually kind ofgetting a bit strange. How often San Fran running backs getinjured is about ten injuries to their running back to season, but mates rise. Definitely Gonka huge riser. For me. Just isn't he justgoaded and he's proved everyone, the entire community wrong two years in arow and then my full light is actually mark.Andrews, two stinkers in a row was drafted very high and he's not livingup to it so certainly for he was my fall last week.Happy with that one. What how? How do you go this week? Not like did you liketo so I versed in so er scored like six or something yeah ye had it yeah my cot,like eight yeah, but yeah. It wasn't great from him at all. I think theirextra weapons breaking out not going to help hiscalls at all. But yes, I am worried about the kittle. The Kid Al Mas Sucksto soft boys did you to to not crack a hundred twoweeks in a Romae. My test can laugh at that just before we finished just a randomthought, because you mentioned this pilch thoughts on Jeff Wilson's,fantasy value. Right now does he have any whense back he'spredicted back like around weeks seven week a week on someone around there...

...saves is not not element yeah, fair enough. Ilike it's an interesting one because they are down to the myths in theRostir like, so he could come back and legit be the number one like Curtisthought. Mitchell was going to be really never was going to be, but you know he was last week it seventeencarries for forty, something has yeah that's his most two point: Five Most OGod injured, sermon, wasn't active. You know they had no other choice at, butyou know who looked better on the weekend: hasty here's yards for carryto rust Mitchell, but anyway, a right bad, yeah, yer yeah for rees made. No. You help like six of them nightyeah, but he's a for. He went at like seven seven Yas for carry be yeah. Heis probably out for a while. Anyway, that's been enough. Tribble for today,we've done two NFL episodes. How you've enjoyed the fantasy one. In particular,if you haven't watched the INRA life NFL, it sounds so weird saying in reallife in F L, but don't help us to say go check that one out thanks forjoining me. Boys almost said thanks for bining me, joys shout out to us for surviving anearthquake and we'll catch our next week. Good luck to Pall Stud Jimmy and you know Comin. I take podcast a boys. I.
