Cheese settle. Welcome back to the on the whole podcast. This is episode eighty five. The show once again joined by Christian pilcher. How are we mate? Thanks, mate, very well, Matt. Yeah, excited for this one. Another fantasy episode. This week we are previewing week ten. We've changed a little bit of the structure, but pretty similar to what we've done the past. So we've got the buy low, sell high section, making a return, the Stream is section and then we've also got a rapid fire starts it and like who we think's better going forward section at the end. So stay tuned for all three. Should be a good one. If you haven't already, feel free to get around the Potty, you know, follow us on all the social stay posted for a few trips, because we do this every week. And if you haven't, feel free to go check out yesterday's in real life week nine NFL review. But to start us off, mate, let's get straight into it. By low, cell high, starting with the quarterbacks. Who are you looking at here? Bylow, I'm gonna go with Big Ben. Big Ben rothless very o then. He's been flying under the radar a little bit and he's got some real good weapons and he hasn't really been lighting the world on fire. So I think you can get him for quite cheap at the moment and I'd say he's a quarterback one rest of season. Yeah, he's pretty reliable. Like I don't think he'll ever have a week where he goes like thirty, but he has not going to have many weeks, if he's doesn't get injured, where he goes like sub eighteen or something. He's just all walking stoids, going to have three hundred yards and a couple touchdowns. Y's exactly very reliable recipe there. So if you just want to set and forget quarterback, he's probably a man. I was considering sending Cork Matt Ryan for Big Ben, but I don't think he'll have a bar of it, so I'll probably yes, I don't think he's. To those listening, we have a few inactives who don't copy any trades and he's one of them. Well, he actually plays, but use doesn't cop trading. But yeah, I'll I like Big Ben. Do you think he's comfortably a quarterback one or do you think he's on the verge of I think there's about eight blokes who are comfortably in there, and then there's probably like six others who are kind of in the same tier to make up the remaining four spots, and I'd say Big Ben's in there with like Tannehill, Borrow Ryan, those sort of blokes. Yeah, so it there in a twelve manner with a one cub. You'd still back them in, though, to be a cute you started. Yeah, so definitely a by LOO option. They're my bylow is Lamar Jackson, the man I traded to you. He's only had three hundred and twenty plus scores this year. It's been well documented that he's passing games not been on and in fantasy terms he's just not been as dominant. But scored eighteen point six against the colts, but that did include a rushing td however, he's only scored three rushing touchdowns this year and you'd expect him to almost match that number in the back half of the year, if not like double it. He's had eighteen rush attempts in the red zone all season and the next most for the Ravens is only eleven. So if there's a rushing touchdown for the ravens, it's actually most likely it's going to be him. Based on those stats, he did throw at eighty two point six percent against the colts defense, so very good one. So you can look at that two ways. You can think, well, that's unsustainable, or you can also see that is maybe the passing games starting to improve. He's not going to hold that completion rate but it might, you know, jump from mid s to mid s or whatever it whatever it is at the moment. He's also coming off his last three fixtures of being the eagles, steals and the colts, all three very good defense has. Now he's got the Patriots and the Titans, who are a lot weaker on that side of the ball, and then looking at to fantasy playoffs, it's that kind of that time of years, only four weeks left. So if you're looking like you're going to make the fantasy playoff, who's all? You've got to start factoring in that as well. He's got the Browns, jags, giants, bangles, so totally for especially well, even against the Browns, you'd imagine the Ravens will be scoring twenty five plus against all four of those teams. Giants are a good defense, but their offense probably won't be able to stay on the park for long enough. So yeah, you'd think Ravens will be scoring a lot of points in there. For Lamar, whether it be running or throwing, has got to get involved. So for me lamars definitely a by low. He probably has been all year realistically, so...

I like that. I like it as a bilow option. So might get him back this week and maybe do you have another bylow or you got to sell high? We'll go sell high. Qub. Yeah, I've got one, one per pozsi for each yep. So I'm pretty sure this block might have been my one last week as well. But Cam Newton again played against the jets. Was Pretty average through the air. I mean he had a high completion right, but it was all like small passes to Jakoby Myers. Didn't score any touchdowns, but he's still somehow pumped out of twenty three because he ran in for two touchdowns. But I mean this was against the jets and he looks very average. So I think you can still sell him decently high, considering he's got some name Value Being Cam Newton and he just had a big score. So I'd be looking to ship him off because I still think there's no ways a qb one huture. Yeah, he's my main cell high as well. He always, like we say, the rushing TD's carry him, but he basically does school one every week. But yeah, I just think is the thing is the week he doesn't score a rushing touchdown, he's going to be upbuilding hop you're going to cop at ten and at this time of the year in fantasy you can't really be having that. And he's this is ridiculous. He's only thrown two touchdowns all season. I'm Sir like that. It's great, that's a joke, but yeah, their offense. It looked a little bit better on the weekend on Monday night football, but it was against the jets. But yeah, he threw an uncharacteristically higher seventy seven point one percent. And then they've got the ravens this week and in round one of the playoffs he has the rams and the dolphins, who are arguably two of the most informed defenses right now. So yeah, definitely a Cell High Cam Newton for me, especially in qb one, like one quarterback leagues. But yeah, I don't think Cam newtons a qb one going forward. My other sell high is Josh Allen. This is a debatable one, because I had him in the bilow last week, if you remember. But he scored thirty six against an awful seahawks defense throughout and ridiculously high eighty one point six completion rate, which is completely unsustainable. And the other aspect of his game. He had four touchdowns, three three in the air, one rushing, which is also unsustainable. He's not going to be getting for every week. The cardinals is the next opponent, then they've got the buy and then in the fantasy playoffs, save the steelers, Bronco's Patriots and Dolphins. So, part from the Patriots, those other three aren't ideal matchups and given the fact that he just went huge, it's skyrocketed his average and although he had a pretty bad month before this week, I think people might forget about that. They will just look at last week's efforts and I reckon if you get good value for him, I think he would be overvalued right now by his owner, so well by other people around the leagues are not his own us. I reckon you could cash him in, but that's probably an art debatable one. Did you think that's a fair point or it would you just set and forget Josh Allen at this point of the year. Well, man, you can set and forget him, but you can. You could probably sell him for a lot right now. Coming off that week. I've got a question. Who would you rather going forward out of Josh Allen and Lamar? That's that's rough because the bills offense looked really good on the weekend and the Ravens haven't really looked good on offense at all this year. But I think I'd have to just go Lamar. I think he's fixtures a lot better and just the rushing yards is a like auran loves and rush, but it's more just in the red zone. So I'd probably just go Lamar. But it's actually pretty tired, I have to say. Yeah, I assume you would go lamar as well. Or Yeah, just because I have him. I probably wouldn't do it straight up. I'll just keep the blow U. I actually have the luck or reckon. It's a bit of a coin Flip Cord Flip situation there. Yeah, it's interesting because obviously lamas by bylow. So if you could look at Alan for Lamar. So it's actually an interesting one V one there. But yeah, I'd probably just take Lamar, but based off this year it's kind of hard to argue that point. But I just like Lamar's floor with these rushing yards. Yeah, and you you've got to assume the RAYMONDS passing game at some points going to click. So I'd probably hedge my bets there and back him in. But yeah, I could see why someone would go Josh Allen there. So it's a tough one. All Right, I felt I was going to say this in the last episode but I forgot. But yeah, if you feel free to comment, anything like last week we had a few guys comment their start and sit dilemmas, which we enjoyed answering and we actually got it right, which walls partially right,...

...but which I was impressed with. So yeah, feel free to comment as start, start and sit or a trade suggestion, even if you don't take our answer like rigidly, just if you want an opinion. We love getting around that stuff. or running backs by low, who if you got here? Yep, so I was originally going to go with Austin Ecler here, but I'm not actually sure if you can still buy him low, because it's kind of pointing that he's going to be back most likely next week, if not the week after. So I'm only thing. The only thing about ecclay is there's been no news on ESPN. So if someone just doesn't us, true, someone doesn't do like a deep dive, you might be ablder yet them. But yeah, that's a watch'd I kind of Suss out what you can get him for, but I'm a te hit to higgins, whin I was often tea higgins. Fair Clark, it was an instant reject. But I'm going to go with Antonio Gibson. Actually interesting, decent rest of season schedule and he's he's still got a really good role. First two downs you know he'll get. He'll get your minimum sixteen rushing at termpts each week, couple of catches and he's kind of he's kind of similar to what miles gascard was a bit at Miami, probably in a slightly worse offense, but like he's going to give you some good volume and he hasn't really meant lighting the world on fire in terms of scores lately. So I think you can get him pretty cheap and he's definitely a top he's definitely a top twenty running back going forward. Yeah, and on the weekend the other fumble, which sure his snap count go down, but that'll they always go straight back up the next week. So yeah, yeah, I definitely ride that shout. Jad mckissick is a bit of a worry, but I was looking at this snap counts and I'm pretty sure they play a lot of the snaps together, because mckissics was like eighty six and yeah, mccaus its last it's like forty six. So I think they played them together and the Kissick just gets the catches and Gibson runs it down the guts. But yeah, they're running games actually pretty good as well, so they usually have a decent yards per carry and Gibson would most likely get the red zone attempts. I Know Payton Barber does sometimes, but that was he's kind of been phased out of the last over the last few weeks. But yeah, I like that shout. James Conner is my bilow had an absolutely awful one against Dallas. I think he do. What did he scool like for or how weird was that? Yeah, it's do was this? This is a bit worrying. I don't know how much to read into his but his last two snap counts are fifty eight percent and forty six percent. When he said his peak he only averages about sixty five percent. So yeah, probably don't overreact to that, but that is probably something you do need to monitor, because we saw last year as soon as he didn't start playing well, they went straight to a committee jail. And Samuel's got more touches and stuff like that Benny Snell. But I think it's mainly down to the game script for those two against the Ravens they were trailing and then against the cowboys they were trailing pretty much the whole way, so they needed to throw heavy and I although he does get a little bit involved in the in the past game, I think they do have big Ben has more preferred options at the running back position when they need to throw it. Well, the all they just go no running back. So I don't think you need to worry about that. Out in the in the next three weeks I've got the Bangles Jags, so you don't have to worry about game script there and they're also horrible defenses against the run. And then they've also got the ravens coming up, who they're actually statistically not very good against the run. Which people probably might not know, but they're not that good. So probably you don't have to worry about him there. And then in the playoffs he has the bills and the and the bangles in the first week of the playoffs, so solid matchups there. But yeah, for me he's an Arby one in the next three weeks and probably those two weeks in the first round of playoffs. So I think if you can get him cheap this week after his horrible performance, I'm sure there's a few fantasy coaches out there who are blaming their loss on connor, then you could get him. So He's definitely a Boumy good shout sell high. Who are you backing in here? Yeah, Todd Gurley. He might have been myself high last week as well, but he just keep he just keeps getting a junk time touchdown just to get his score up to like ten or eleven points. You know, he has his fifteen carries for thirty yards every week, but as soon as he doesn't score a touchdown he's scoring genuinely five points tops, and you just can't you can't be relying on him to score a touchdown every single week and I think that'd be people out there that just look at his scores and his average and would want him on their team. So if you can sell him and his all of Antonio Gibson. Probably can't, but that would be an...

...absolute steel. Yeah, or even like this is ambitious, but echola like. Oh, yeah, definitely if you could do something like that, or even maybe gaskin. I don't know how highly rate gaskin, but yeah, I definitely back that. And just they I don't know their fixture, but just based on the division, they must play the bucks and saints, who are both very good run deep. It's actually play one. They play one of them twice. So I have Tampa twice in the playoffs. Yeah, that's that's right. I remember seeing that yesterday. And he's also lost a few snaps recently to Brian Hill. Yeah, you stuff. Count went down heaps, I know, mainly against the panthers what. Not Too sure against the broncos on the weekend. But yeah, I agree with that. And also game script won't suit against the saints and Bucks. So well, most likely they're never the falcons. So I write that one. Got Got Rid of him a few weeks back. So yeah, definitely get rid of get rid of him now I can also similar to Cam Newton. He has a bit of the name, bit of the name factor. Yeah, the me my sell high. I've got a bit of a cop out here, but it's an obvious one. Video actually has like seventy five percent ownership, which kind of shocked me. But Jarek McKinnon, he's had backtoback weeks of double digits thanks to rushing touchdowns and he's active in the passing game, which is good. Even when most and stuff we're playing, he would get around three to four catches a game. But upcoming schedule of the saints, then the buyer than the rams. Saints and Rams are like two of the top five run defenses and the buyers obviously a donut. And then most it, Tevin Coleman and Jeff Wilson all nearing return in the next two weeks. So yeah, if I've a jerk mckinn and owner, I think he might be a stream option this week. I've seen a few that floating around, but I think Tevin Coleman is playing that week, so I'd be a little bit worried about that. And also the forty nine is at this point I just don't want to go near any their running backs, except for the most they just change it up every single week. HASTI's let let down a lot of people is streaming as a streamer in the last two weeks. But yeah, for me, McKinnon, definitely jump off that ship if you're still on it, because you could probably still get value for him. With this coming up week, he does have value, so I reckon you could get something decent for him. So yeah, I'd get rid of him. But then I've got an interesting one, similar to the Josh Allen it's debatable if you should be here, but it's actually your man, James Robinson. This is just because, purely is nothing statistical about his performances, but he's had a ridiculously easy schedule in the last six weeks. Four of his last five opponents have been bottom for rush defenses. so that's in yards per tempt. Also, on the weekend they did have the Jake Luton Guy, a quarterback, not mintew, which might have hurt him, but he didn't have will catch with. Yeah, he saw his fewest targets since round one. He only had two and every other match has had like four or five. So yeah, he's fixed. Your moving forward. Isn't that bad, but it is a step up from what he's had in previous, previous weeks. So yeah, also, if you have, if you're very confident in your team and you're looking at fantasy finals, so like the second week of the playoffs, the second round of the playoffs, he's got the bears in the colts, who are two of the best run defenses. So it's a debatable one because he's a good player, high volume, so you can kind of count and count on him. But yeah, I think you could. He could be overvalued right now. So I'd look at getting rid of him and see or set testing the waters and seeing what you could get frohim maybe. Do you think that's fair or you keeping him? Yeah, it's fair. I just I was just looking at his schedule just there and it actually after this week he gets pretty nasty. He has that, as you said, the bears and Indie. Yeah, I'll probably keep him for now, though. I'm not going to sell him this week because I think he has a big game against Green Bay and then you could probably sell him next week if he scores like twenty. But Yeah, you you could definitely get a lot for him, though. Yeah, I said or we're wide receivers who should buy low here. Bill, I'm going with Allan Robinson Chicago. He's he's as consistent as they come and he's kind of just been pumping out, you know, in between tween twelve and sixteen points. So he's kind of going under the radar a bit and I'd still prefer him over guys like Aj Brown. I've AJ Brown, Robbie Anderson, people like that. So if you can get him for someone like that, I definitely would. I think he's probably a borderline top ten wide receiver. Yeah, very secure, exactly what you want from prossy, kind of like Canan Allen, just with the worst quarterback. So He's a bit he's a bit Um restrained because of that, but he's still a...

...beast, a hundred percent. A robs being elite ever since like started last year pretty much. Well, he's been pretty good before that as well. My bylows, Michael Thomas, I think you're like ten or something. I actually don't know. He had fifty sorry snap count and straight away I put him in here. Yeah, I only had fifty five percent of the snaps. So last year he was the wide receiver one by an absolutely mile, and he saw eighty nine cent of snaps for the season. So if you can, like I don't know what you'd have to give up for him, but he had a hundred percent. Being it a hundred percent be undervalued right now unless the owner is a Michael Thomas Fan. So I reckon if, if you can, even if it's just like a straight swap for the top five wide receiver for him, like, I don't know, Julio for Thomas or something like that, I think would be worth it because I can't see he's not count staying below eighty percent for much longer. And their offense actually, if it's going to play like it did on the weekend, they could have more scoring potential than last year, which is good for Thomas. But yeah, main thing for Thomas is the receptions and you'd expect to see them back up to his lofty heights next week. Yeah, so that's my buy low, sell high. Who you going here? I found this one hard. The cell high one. Yeah, I've Gone With Adam feeling and he's been producing some very poor scores, but ninety five percent of the people still view him as Adam feel and, you know, just beast wide receiver, and I still think you could sell him for quite a decent, decent player. I'd probably I'd probably have him kind of around that, back in top twenty, maybe top twenty five at the moment. So I mean I reckon. You could definitely get someone better for him. Yeah, last week I did my rankings. I there's a few players who weren't in it because they're locked away in inactive teams for us. But yeah, he was outside the top fifteen, I'm pretty sure. Yeah, just like his main thing was targets. Does that's been his main thing for the last three or four years and they've seemed to disappear. I do think the game script is going to they've got a few tough of matches, including this week against the bears, which should see them throw the ball more, because you don't think down and Cook's going to be able to get, you know, two hundred yards whatever every single week. But wouldn't count that out. So I would be trying to sell up on seal and and Jefferson as well. Actually, yeah, I don't really rate what they offer to your side. So I'm an owner of Jefferson. Actually, might be training for theeal and which is quite dodgy, but it's more just to get travis fullum. But yeah, I actually I rate Travis Fulgham above Terry McLaren and it's seriously, and that's seriously, lady, but I probably shouldn't be admitting that on the podcast because it might affect my training this week. But yeah, wide receiver sell high minds actually. Yeah, as I said, this was really tough, but mines will for he's been awesome this year. He scored double digit every single match except for one. But I just hate how low his targets are and he scored a touchdown in his last like six matches. I think in his last two I think he's had targets of five and for which is just not what you really want. And then from week thirteen to fifteen they play the colts, bears colts and that's so that's the last round of the regular season in the first round of playoffs. And Yeah, I just think you'd be slightly overvalued right now because I the week he doesn't score a touchdown is going to get like six. So he has a high yard's perception and he's probably going to score a touch are more often than not. But yeah, I'm just a bit worried about him and also brandon cooks has been outperforming him in terms of targets and red zone targets as well and the last three weeks. So bit worried about fuller. But yeah, like he's not. You don't have to panic if you've got him, but I just reckon he could be a little bit overvalued right now. So if you could get something good for him, I think it's worth considering. But yeah, I do you think that's fair? Or do honestly back him into just keep scoring a touchdown a game? Yeah, I will, obviously depends what you can get. I think you could get something quite good. But he's like he's definitely he's definitely an elite receiver, like I'd probably I'd have him higher than Adam Feeling, for instance, going forward. But he's not a I don't think he's a wide receiver. One check and no one would call fuller for Robinson. Would he would a Allen Robinson? Yeah, fully ful is like the for to wide receiver...

...fourteen. So like you could get some serious stuff for him. Yeah, yeah, if you can, if you can get Robinson for full I definitely would. Yeah, hundred percent, or even like this, like I don't think you'd be able to get him, but like a Terry McLaren, if you could manage that. Terry's volume is definitely spicier than fuller's. At tight ends, the irrelevant position, the position we love. Well, we actually did a tight end dealing. For those listening, we did in a mega trade. We had grunk for Waller, swap sides. So I've now actually got a set and forget, while grunk is kind of set and forget, I guess. But but WHO's your bylow here? My bilow is Dallas. Got It, hundred percent bylow. I'm actually the most inactive bloke in our entire league. Owns Dallas got it and I've just been hammering him DM's today, just saying what have I got to give up for Dallas got it, because I really want him on my team, right in back. Who owns him? Queen, this is irrelevant to those. So he owns, doesn't he own got it and groom and fant this is right. This is why I need to get a tight end of him. This is what we're dealing with. People Dam US on instagram or in the comments if you want to join our league next year, because what would like? We saw what we would not with guy. Yeah, so, yeah, I've just been off. I sent him Jonathan Taylor, are you and cousins for Dallas got it, which should be an absolute steal for him, considering he already has no a fan and angram. But anyway, you probably won't see it, but yeah, he he's definitely a bilow. He's averaging like eight, but he's going to be. It's isn't playing. Went loves to target his tight ends. I could see him being a potential top five tight end going forward once he's because now he's full fully fit and healthy as well. Yeah, definitely an interesting prospect and yeah, come off that return game, I think his value will be a lot lower than it should be. So I like him as well. I think this is my bylow last week. So if you're in the bylow twice, you're arguably not a bylow because you shouldn't be talked about you here again. But Mark Andrews is once again my bylow. He saw, he's seen in the last two matches. He's seen six and five targets respectively, and he's only caught three of them in each so that catch rate should lift. Usually it's a lot higher on his end. And as I said before, Lamar, I'm expecting the Ravens passing game to start improving before the NFL playoffs and I was looking at their red zone targets. He's received eleven red zone targets. The next best is only for. So if they're going to start throwing more passing touchdowns, it's most likely going to be him seeing them. And, although I keep crapping on about don't be someone who's td reliant, he does see six, six to five, to four to seven targets a game. So he's got a higher floor than, say, I don't know, Johnny Smith. So I think Andrews has a lot upside. So yeah, who, who are you going with on your cell? High, so high. Jared Cook. I think he might have been myself higher last week too, but if you still have jared cook, get rid of him. Try and GET DALLAS. Got It for Jared Cook. That would be. That would be but they might. I mean Cook. He scored three on the weekend but he's still being kind of fluking. A touchdown every week, getting thirteen, by the way, as we're talking about tight ends, the absolute king of this show. Got A shout out Albert. Okway Bonham, who did hes ACL on the weekend. So love you, love you, Albert. Will see that that time sad's by. Actually might not be back next year, but still got a spot of my heart. Son Be ye a carrion wish. He must swift recovery. Yeah, so just Jarich or just get rid of him for literally anyone anyway. You know, he was like tight and three coming into the yeah, I he was my tight end five or six, but that's the thing. Everyone was high and him was back in the last year he balled. Yeah, people still kind of like if you look at where he was drafted in your league, it's probably you're still quite high. So people might still be clinging onto that a bit. Their offense is going to improve, so he might school more Ted's. But yeah, I just hate how little he's involved. I think he's going to be copping like two targets now. Well, now they've come like back and also they've got other good tight ends as well. Okay, she'll Josh Hills. It's caught a few TD's of late and troutling. Yet one on the weekend. So exactly. Yeah, I'm often sared. Cook is cooked, he's he's done so cook cous, he's gone, or my cell high is the guy you actually wanted to get off the waves. I don't like I'll be honest. I don't get why people frof this dude, Johnny Smith. You had another double digit score on the weekend thanks to...

...a TD. But he's seen two targets in three of the last four matches and so it's genuinely basically if you get a touchdown, he scores ten, if he doesn't, he scores to. So he's likely to score a touchdown of most games because the titans are pretty good offense and he's their main aerial threat in the red zone. But the when he doesn't score a touchdown, he's gone only above five points once. It's having four times this year and he's only gone above five one. So He's genuinely bought along losing your match up if he doesn't score a touchdown. So and then coming up they've got the colts, Ravens Colts. So yeah, that's a kind of job. I'm not a fan of John Wyho. Johnny's average is quite high. I think so you could maybe, maybe tried Johnny for Dallas. Got It? I don't know. I don't know if anyone would cop that, but there's a lot of wild and wacky people out there. But yeah, moving on to the anything else you want to talk about there or do you want to move on to the streamers? Right, let's just move on from tight ends. Actually, Froth Ice Frost streamers, but I'd never stream anyone myself. To those who don't know what a streamer is, I feel like I should have explained this last week. It's someone who, they say, I don't know. You've got to buy in your running back slot and you need someone or you don't like one of your running backs matchup, so you want to bring in someone who's got a low ownership percentage, who's got a face will fix UART, who has a high chance of scoring high just for one week and then you ship them off next week. So that's what a streamer is and our criteria is below sixty percent owned ship on the ESPN. So thought I'd just explain that quickly. But quarterback streamers mate always, always an interesting position to stream the quarterbackslot. Who are you rocking with here? To Up to a tongue of by lower rock ships, like twenty nine percent or something. Yeah, couldn't believe that when I saw it, and I think laugh the litally has games given up. Who are the dolphins playing it? You carry on our ill check. But yeah, to looked amazing in is it's someone easy, it's someone. It's a decent fixture, I'm pretty sure, but I'm yeah, board out charges ago. They've been pretty pretty suspect against the past recently. Yeah, board out last week Herbert V to Ur. That'll mean spicy. That's the first gay for that time. Any of them played each other? I think. I didn't think her yes, laid borrow. Oh No, they did. Oh No, really, I do. Taylor Played Barrow. I B's around. Yeah, that's good memory. Anyway. Yeah, to it. It was my streamer. I think he'll have a big game. He's rostered on twenty nine percent of League, so go pick him up. Yeah, a hundred percent agree. He's my sitting on my bench at the moment, just hoping he sprouts and I can sell them off and improve my starting X. I might even do that this sorry, I'll take your up hands man. I would even explain what Exci is because we've got a lot of American viewers, but my streamers it's a tough one to it was is probably the best option, but I was looking mainly at just beast fixtures. They don't jared golf is my number one. He's only in forty six percent of rosters. Up Against Seattle, who Josh Allen just scored thirty six against. I know there's a big discrepancy between our and golf, but see, I'll have conceded the fourth most points in the competition since September and if Seattle take the lead early you'll expect the rams to just throw everything like they did against Miami. I think he had fifty one attempts or something like that against Miami. He just threw the house down and he hasn't gone below ten points all year. So although you don't really care about their floor, like the the minimum score they're lot probably going to get if you're streaming someone, but that is also good to know. He's not going to work out a for he's probably like these. Lowest would probably be like a twelve or fourteen, but he's upside's huge. He has three hundred and twenty plus scores as well on the season and to rushing tds. So all but all potentials this weekend. Big Chance to get above twenty here for Goffney, and yet I like him as a streamer. My other guys. Drew Lock as well, coming off the back of too decent fantasy scores Nineteen and twenty nine against the raiders. So you'd imagine the game script will probably suit them again. You'd think the raiders will take a lead in that one early, and the raiders have the seventh worst past defense. Good thing about lock he has two rushing touchdowns in the last three weeks and last week he threw it fifty two percent and almost got thirty points. So you can't imagine it's stay for two percent for too long, although he does have a seriously low career completion rate. But yeah, drew locks probably a lot riskier. But yeah,...

...golfs probably my main shout there, to be honest. But yeah, two is a good one as well. Yeah, Golf. Golf will go big this week and so we'll cup in woods. Yeah, running back. Running back, I found really hard this week because none of the none of the main options, had good fixtures. So I found it tough. But who are you going here. There is one bloke, David Johnson, is ninety percent going to be out with the concussion this week. So Duke Johnson is in the playing the brands, who are decent against the run. But the Texans heads, head coaches, said that Duke Johnson's going to take the big role, the heavy workload, so he'll be pretty safe for ten points and he might get into the end zone for her. So Chuck em in your line up if you need a running back. Yeah, David Johnson was borderline in my own bylow actually, because he scored one point six. But yeah, yeah, with the we don't know too many injuries yet. There's a lot of the running backs have come back in the last fortnight. But yet keep an eye out for the injuries. Same in Seattle. If Carson and hide don't play well, then homer or Dallas, of both options. And yet just keeping hear out for those. Davis is owned in like seventy percent of league. So we didn't include him, but if he's on your wave, a wire snagging top, yeah, McCaffrey doesn't get up, yeah, definitely get Mike Davis in my running back streamer. I picked him up this week in the waivers. He's not a he's not an inspiring choice at all. But joant Aaron Jones is back, but I've gone with Jamal Williams. If you look at his starts before Jones is injury, he was actually still doing pretty decent. He had a game where he scored like twenty, I think because he's really involved in the passing game. In that match I was talking about he had eight targets. So he had five red zone attempts in his last three matches when Aaron Jones has played. That's rushing attempt so although Jones schools most of the rushing touchdowns, Jamal Williams does get his cracks at it. And in this one you expect them, against the JAGS, to get up early and run the house down. If they're up by twenty points by halftime, who knows, they could sit Jones and Jamal could come in and take take the Mick, especially in the last quarter. Yeah, the Jaguars have conceded the most points in the competitions set see in September. So I think all the packers players are pretty interesting streaming options this week for those that aren't owned in a lot of leagues. So Jamal Williams. It's a low floor option because you just might only, you know, get three catches. No, no rushing. It carries, but he most usually he gets around ten touches when Jones doesn't play. So and I'd be banking on Jones getting sat by like three quarter time. Yeah, as a as a high chance that occurs. Yet they fair. It's I don't think three quarter times a saying in NFL, but I've just brought it in. there. Any any other running backs you want to mention, not just Duke Johnson for me, spicy option. Before we get into the wide receivers, I'll just ask you again please get around the potty. Feel free to subscribe and like and all that good stuff, and feel free to comment your start and sit dilemmas or any trade negotiations. We had a couple last week and really enjoyed it. So get around that. Or wide receiver streaming. Who are going with here? Yeah, so this is if you're, as normal, pretty desperate for a receiver if you've got a couple buys or injuries. But I'm Curtis Samuel. He's own in less than sixty percent of leagues and he's been kind of balling out recently, the giving him like all these trick play carries and like all these weird plays, but he's getting he's producing quite well. So yeah, I think he's projected like thirteen points on espn fantasy, which is always promising. So yeah, I'd be on stream him if you need someone. Yeah, I was going to pick him up this week. Actually he was at about four guys in contention for the waivers, but I went with someone else. Current. But who I went with? Yeah, definitely a decent option. He's I think he's had two rushing touchdowns in the last two games or something like that, so he's definitely a spicy pick. They do have the bucks, though, but that's true. Really it's not really running back. So so it's like, yeah, it's b carry's going to affect him and he's more in there for touchdown potential. So I write that pick up. My main streamer is Tim Patrick, the Denver Broncos he has had seven plus targets in three of his last four. They're up against the raiders, who are pretty Badians the pass. As I said, for drew lock locks completion rate makes him a tough option because even if he gets eight targets. He's probably only going to get four catches, but the amount of targets he sees especially a also in the red zone. He's had six red...

...zone targets and actually five of those six have been completed. So they seem to narrow dial it in in the red zone. So for me Tim Patrick's AD decent, decent option against the raiders. Same probably goes for all the Denver white white outs. Are All pretty spicy, even Kj Hammler, and then a risky one. This is one to keep an eye out our Lazar. He's most likely going to play this week. He's still on, I are, but it's most likely going to play. You almost played last week and, as I said before, Jamal Williams have got the jags and Lazard is someone I'm very interested in, not even just as a streamer but as a genuine pick up for the bench. My only worries he might have lower snaps because it's his first game back, but easily the best wide receiver in terms of genuine ability in the out of the wide receivers below sixty percent rosted. And yet saw for red zone targets out of the first three matches and they're up against the Jag, so you think there's going to be a lot of touchdowns to go around. So I think alanasar is a lot riskier but also interesting pick up. And you could probably argue if lazard's not back, then mvs Marquez about as scandling becomes a streaming option to yeah, tight ends. Who are you going with? You Dallas got it again. He's actually on the ownly in like forty six percent of leagues, which is how Weird is that? But he's he's owned in our league. I'm for because it's got to be, because he's a myth. It's got to because no to and people put a dropped him when he went on. I are yeah, and just how I asked him. Bill is a kiss of death. Yeah, yeah, if, yeah, if he's available in your league, get him, I sap and yeah, but they're playing New York giants this week. I mean they can see the decent amount of points to tight ends. They mainly lockdown receivers. So I can see him having I could see him having a big game. To be honest, he was the he's the easy choice me. Yeah, very fair. I went with some more rogue options. Robert Tonya. He doesn't see too many targets but as I keep saying about the Green Bay packers up against the JAGS and Tonyan, as we saw in that week where he caught three touchdowns, he's a ever present touchdown threat. And then, apart from him, Logan Thomas is an interesting option against average lines defense. In his last two games I think he's had over twelve points and he's had seven targets in the red zone this season and he's had three teen plus scores. So solid chance he goes big. But and Gerald Everett is also someone I'm interested in. Against Seattle I think he had nine targets this past week. So really he could be a streaming option. He's kind of overtaken higbee in the rams offense. Or moving on to the start and sits lash. WHO's better for the rest of the season conversation? I think we start with yours first, so you'll be doing you'll be answering the rest of season who has better and I'll be starting the week ten starts. It's so first of all, you don't have to we say it's rapid fire, but you can take, you know, thirty seconds or something, or you can explain your thinking, because it will be quite boring content if we just go name, name, name. All right, strange one to start with, but who do you back out of the Tampa Bay buccaneers running backs? Do you think row, Joe or four and good one better options going one would I'm probably going to go with four Nett to be honest. I'll just think Rojo has the highest snap counts, but for net has the higher value touches. You know, red zone and the passing work. We play in a PPR league, so catches a very important to running backs. So I'd probably laying on for net there. Yeah, I agree with you that I would begone for net just but we didn't really get to see much of them last week, so it's kind of hard to see what the dynamic is there. Yeah, next one, I just had got it and Hokinson, but I as we'll talk about tight ends, I decided to add quin's other two tight ends. Okay, no, offen and Ingram. So rank, got it. Howkinson, Fan and groom? All right, right, those four. Okay, I'm going to go Hawkinson Top, okay, Fan, second, got it. Third, engram. Fourth, all right, inty on. It's they're all like same tier maybe, or maybe Phanton Hawkinson probably a little bit slightly better tier than the other two. But yeah, I'd go that order. Yeah, all right, interesting. They're all that, you know, just below the elite tier. Very good tight ends, though. Now talking about the premium running backs, who do you like out of Kamara, Cook and McCaffrey? Yeah, very time, nearest time was coming. Okay, you have to go Kamara fairst just because he's the safest one.

Like you know, he's going to score twenty five points even against good run defens has like. Yeah, Cook score forty some weeks, but when he plays like the bears this week, he might struggle. So I'll go Kamara first, cook second, McCaffrey third, because because McCaffrey's out this week and he still has his bi coming up. That's actually yeah, if we're not factoring an injury this week, I would say McCaffrey's my number one. But yeah, that's probably a good that's probably you can make an argument for any order and that to be honest. Yeah, I like you thinking there. All Right, Battle of the backup running back. So these are the guys who kind of came to fantasy relevance in the last six weeks, but now they're pretty irrelevant. But rest of season, who do you like out of Jamal Williams, Jordan Wilkins, Giovanni, Bernard and Mike Davis? So this is yeah, I guess you can factor in the MAKEHAFFRE's out this week, but this one's tough. Because this one is tough, it's out of Jamal Williams and Davis, just because Davis stands to gain the most if McCaffrey gets hurt. But you can't really bank on that. So I'd probably go with Jamal Williams. Yeah, do you think Bernard has any relevance now that mixings back, or do you think he's gone back to his original role? Definitely no relevance. All right. Who Do you like out of the rams receivers, Cup or woods? Yeah, good on. I'm going woods. Very close though that all season they've just been averaging the exact same points big game, but I've always just had woods slightly above him. Yeah, by the way, speaking of rams receivers, Josh Reynolds is also a kind of interesting wide receiver. Stream this week he's seen bulk targets recently. My former men my former wide receivers, Julio Jones or DK metcalf high. Yeah, this song kind of it's kind of the battle of volume versus yard's perception. Well, actually, DK is. Well, we are. You traded Julio to me last week and I actually rated him above DK, but I've kind of switched around on that and I'm going Dka now. All right, very interesting. Both wide receivers, though. Yeah, they're very good players. And then, finally, bit of a quarterback. Can untrum I've found myself in this week. Well, I haven't really put much thought to it, but whence to Aur and then I've added onto the back of this big bend rank those record season. Yeah, yeah, big bend first, easily to our kind of depends to it has more upside than whence, I feel like. But whence is kind of safer. So if if you've already got a quarterback who's better than them to and it's your backup quarterback, I'd go tour if not I'd go wentz or interesting. Interesting. Okay, that's all I've got for you, mate. So all right, we'll move on to the starts. It's I've got five here. I'm scared the first start. We Got Cup running backs. Do you still have Darrell Henderson on your yeah, I got Henderson Verse Seattle or Jonathan Taylor Versus Tennessee. He's gone the first. Are you trying to trade nego shed here? Ma Nah, I'm not. I'm not trying to trade the go sh right time brictly this week. I only once. Defense is actually underrated. I was doing some statistics and their yards per the yards protem theyve allowed as three point six in the see September and September, I think. The first few games they got destroyed and then, yeah, the seahawks are decent as well. That's tough. I'd probably just go Jonathan Taylor, just because Henderson's coming back from injury and we're not too sure what is that counts going to look like. But yeah, Henderson. Henderson's riskier, but he has way higher upside in my opinion. But yeah, I'd probably go tailor. Just that's rough because tailors like. What tail is probably going to score's probably not even worse like kicking him like. You May as well take the risk on hand. Oh be yeah, it probably depends who you're playing, what kind of situation you're in. If you just want, if the rest of your team's good and you just want someone who's going to give you like a round eight to twelve of probably just go Taylor. If you looking for someone to win you the game and maybe put up a fifteen or twenty, well then Henderson's probably your bet because he is due for some rushing touchdowns, given his numbers. What you got next to me? Yeah, good call there. Next up we've got the lions playing the Washington football team. So deandre swift or Antonio Gibson or that is tough. That is tough. The football team are a better defense lines, but I'd probably have to go swift. Tie really game script. I reckon.

True game script. I reckon and I think swift. He played pretty well last week. I think I can't remember start line, but I think his yards per carry was decent. And Yeah, Gibson, as you said, he's definitely a good option as a bylow this moving forward. But yeah, I don't know. I'm back. And then swift. Very close, so very close. Yeah, I reckon. So Swift, hug you go, swift, warp side, I reckon. Yeah, it's probably similar to the first one actually. Yeah, swift probably could school lower but definitely a higher upside. All Right, now I've my third. One is impossible. It's a it's a. You got to pick one out of these three. They actually know this. This feedom F make me lose sleep, mate, it might. You know, I will go, you, you will go. You've got all three on your team and you've got to sit one. So you got to start to right. Okay, okay, and it's Juju, Deante, Johnson, claypool. I was actually just looking this before. Do you recent numbers have been very good. Yeah. Well, this is interesting because I don't like Hay, but playing Cincinnati, they're all playing the same team, so it wasn't really matter. Yeah, it's interesting. Could because they're different side proud go Dante and clay pool because Juju gets more volume but low yards per reception, very low, and t is less of a TD target than the other two. So I'd be going clay pool and Johnson. But claypole's the risk. Can you even say is risky than Johnson anymore, given Johnson's last injuries? John under way, the fifty percent chance to think Juju. The difference between Juju's floor and ceiling is the smallest out of the three. So if you want to save option, maybe go Jooju, but I think the other two ceiling is way higher than jujus personally. Yeah, but all pretty good options this week, to be fair against the BENGALS team. That yeah, it can see a lot of points. We would you say that? Yeah, I'd probably. Yeah, as you said, it depends. All right, Claypool's the most spoon bust out of the three. I would say yeah, hundred percent. All right. Now we've got another wide receiver one. We got Texans Be Browns, cooks, me, Landry. Texans be browns. Texans to browns. Texans Feed Brand Ra text in. There a lot worse defense than the browns. Yeah, although Brown secondary is pretty their past defense is pretty must true. Is True. I do have cooks as well. I'd probably go cook. So checkle. I think he's a bit more reliable. May All you'll see the exact same. There's one that's more reliable, but one has higher upside. Like Landry, could bull out. If the Browns, you know, put up thirty plus points, is probably likely to catch. But I think cooks you can probably pencil them in for somewhere between five and eight targets. So he's probably going to get ten plus just on receptions alone, and he's a pretty good he's one of de Shan's favorite td targets. So yeah, I'd probably just go cooks as well. But in saying that, cooks might be departing my team this week. So we're still kind of waiting for Landry to take advantage of Odell Beckham the Sel this week. Could be the week. would be the way, could be the week. All right, last one, mate. This is more premium receivers. Here we got Tyler Boyd Against Pittsburgh or Godwin Against Carolina. Rough, rough, roff. That's rough, is brutal. I think you can. I probably want to start both these guys if you have them both. But yeah, I think I've got to go Godwin just because the matchups better. Yeah, yes, likes a pretty rough steal. This still is there, only averaging twenty point, six points against so, although Boyd is likely, he's one of Joe Barr's favorite red zone targets. Yeah, I don't know about them scoring too many points this week. But yeah, I'd probably back in Godwin, but probably probably similar. Once again. Yeah, probably arguably has high ceilings. So, but ye, I'll be locking in God when they're even with his busted finger. For hasty cuts like that. What's Hee did he because he had some broken finger. Yeah, he's fingers like completely cooked. So they have to strap it to the other finger next to it, so when he catches it it's like that liken, fossible to catch. They were showing it on the on Sunday night footy. But yeah, that's it. That was a good last segment. I reckon. I think that becomes a permanent fixture. Did you like it at like my feedback right about highly yeah.
