Welcome back to the on the ball podcast.Another episode of the grain is potty going around and we're back here againto talk about NFL fantasy, we'll be doing a week for preview of the NFL ingeneral at the end of the episode so stating for that one. But the mainchunk of this episode is going to be fantasy chat, our usual rises and fallsin the main for fantasy positions, but before we get into that a little bit ofa fantasy wrap up from the lads Jimmy. How did your side go this week? Surprisingly impressive, for I think Iworked up like a hundred and fifty three beat lock, who has a very solidteam, to say the least, so yeah one and two and the champagnewas cracked open the end of Tuesday to celebrate yeah, actually pretty big win,because as much as I had faith in your side, if you went on three, I know sixout of ten of our league MAG finals, but on three would have been getting into Muslin territory, but hugewind right back in the mix and you've got a pretty good team. So it S A andyou've been doing some good training as well. Actually, every time I see one ofyour trades go through, I'm just like how's. That happened, and I even dothat when I'm the person trading with you so no pilch your team. I can't even rememberhow you went. How did you go mat yeah in the end, pretty good Thursday night foote was not lookinggood had McCaffrey get in June in the George Kitler foody club had brandy,cooks who went off but got to got to a Sunday night food and just blew themblew him out of the water as they say so, I'm sitting at three o Yeh Sitin pretty and your you're notbudging on C MC try. How do why I didn't really have a crack, but Iinvestigated last night and that's smart for you from you not really copping the fantasy prosdropping him down to number six in the rankings when he's going to miss up twoweeks, but I don't know O, maybe there's concerns he comes back and haslike a limited volume or anything. I have to say not sure about the management of c MCfrom the panthers. I think it's going to be questioned like the man's comeoff in the injury, riddle gear and then he's gone from like what week to he hadforty touches or something and then straight into Thursday night for like you, would have thought therewould have been some smarter play, especially when they are up against thesaints. By like twenty points you yeah, I just think like, I know, he's aweapon and you want him on the field every single play, but it's notpossible, especially when it's injury prone. So I think the panthersmanagement might have led a lot of fantasy managers down a little bitthere. But yes, and then it terms to me, I had another absolute shock outsomehow about the most disgraceful win in league history. You know, I don'tknow what I scored like eighty, nine or something but yeah George Kiddal had toget, I think, twelve and he got the job done on the final while their finaldrive and yeah. I don't really care about my record, though I'm justseriously worried about my team because that's back to back stinkers- and I waslooking at my team this morning and every single player is in the reds interms of roster percentage, so everyone's trying to get rid of themout of their team. So that's good to see you but yeah we'll see how it goesthis week. Hopefully I guess some of them a Jew, didn't have the greatestluck with injury had Sterling Shepherd Actually Bench devo Samuel, which was amassive risk. I think it would have paid off if shepherd didn't get injured,but he did just after the first quarter and then Halo Jones also only playedfifty percent of staps with the injury concern so yeah that didn't help eitherbut yeah pretty average week. For me, John, the Taylor did not do well andCarson whence you could tell you was playing on two sprayed ankles or saythat much all right time for our rises and falls. GUBS START US off, obviouslywe're in a two cub league. So then we might say some people that aren't thatrelevant to one QB leagues, but hang with US Pitu your rises and falls inthis position. All right so rises, I'M gonna have tosay: Kirk cousins have been way too low in him more yearand he's just put up twenty five every single week. So it's about time. Irespect him and also Sam Donald Hur to man he's just in an elate offense with hugeweapons, and he actually doesn't look too bad. Like probably looks betterthan bridge order, and all that so I think he'll be decent on fantasy hateto admit it, but I think you will yeah. I don't know, I think that's harson Teddy, but yeah. I agree with you...

...he's definitely a riser for me justbecause of their scheduled to be honest, like, as we saw as lake there, legitjust going to score twenty five thirty points every week, because theiropponents am great and he is bound to get two touchdowns a week, pretty muchwith solid yardage. So yeah, here's a decent option: Yeah Kerk, actuallyHAM'n pretty high. But I agree with you. His form so far has been pretty hectic.Like I've talked to you in the past pilch about there being a bit of a topeleven CBS and then the gap to number twelve s pretty high, but cousins couldbe bridging that gap. Who are your fools man? For me? It's just the one faller andI've kind of grouped done. This is a big group, but the entire cowboys passoffense for me, so Prescott, lamb and Cooper or fallers for a few reasons. Firstly, theirdefense is way better. Many may don't have to throw it as much this year,which is good for them, but bad for fantasy and also the rung game looksreally good. They seem to be running the ball whenever they can so obviouslythat all have an effect as well. Yeah actually completely agree with youthere, so I would say the running back stocksas I'll mentioned in a second increase, and then all those boys decrease. To behonest, so I think I'm only high on CD lamb out of that bunch. I think I'mrelatively Lee on the others. Cotis rises and falls made for the QB rises have to hunderstand agree withthe Cook and Donald Analysis from Pilco, both both being impressive, given theirinitial rank in the stadia so got to give them ticks if youdrafted them or you have them for you've rusted them. I've also gone fora tailor. I niche he's only in for probably about eight weeks or so I'mgiven fittis in drew, but I think he's a pretty solid contributor and he'sshowing that through the third three weeks with fifty being injured, I think he'snot not someone you ever going to really start unless you have to, buthe's a he's, a great bench Warma I think, and if he needs to be put on thepitch. I think he's going to give you a solid fifteen twenty every week, just with these short passing and theycan't just guarantees a bit a consistency as well in terms of the Falles gonna have to go. Travel Arts went thatlast week on to go that this week the man was on vanity pros projected to befifteen. The fifteenth best cub in PP leagues and, to be honest, he haslooked disgraceful not just in chars of be scores, but also actually in reallife of the pitch. So if you have travel lawrence like I didtrade them in get rid of him do anything. You can do get some valuebecause I don't think he's going to have much value for the rest of theseason. To be honest, especially given I it looks like theymight be going to a bit more of a wrong game with J rob, who is probably themost talented player on their offense so yeah, I will try sta clear of travleyeah he's in a shit situation, he's not playing world all we're going to get tosee him on Thursday night football this week so came to see that as we haven'twatched them yet, but the Cincinnati defenses in good form. So I don't evenhave much hope for him there to be honest Trevor and borrow that Wiactually be pretty good, yeah chewing yeah. It should be actually, hopefullythe bengals don't bump them, but there is a chance. My B rise is the staffMatthew Stafford, absolutely tore up the box. He was my number ten headinginto the week, but he's probably going to have to risethis week, he's had weeks of twenty six and thirty passing attempts, which wasone of my main concerns within, but whether I be Ju Dahan do's in jusinjury this week, but Mick Vay. Finally, let him have a crack really and he hadthirty eight tents. He scored just under thirty, and I don't even think heplayed like lights out like. I definitely think, there's even room forimprovement. We saw a mislike to Shawn Jackson quite a few times before hefinally hit him so and he's also played Chicago the cults and the buck. If youranked the defenses in the preseason you'd probably say they were top alltop five, so yeah, it's pretty scary, to think howhigh stuff at ceiling is in terms of fantasy and also in the NFL but yeahfor me is a riser and a fuller. I've got Jan hurts. I actually had a so highlast week, I'd in the number three, but look I don't know like. I don't want togo too early on him because he did end up getting about twenty in a prettyaverage loss, but he averaged four yards but carry e and he had twointerceptions which neither of those...

...things are going to happen every week.But the fact that I was against the cowboys defense that isn't great yeah.It's just a bit of a concern for me and I don't think, like the likes of, Ithink the likes of Josh, Allen and stuff like that, going to be a lotbetter options than hurts. Even though hurts is floors quite low, as we sawlike he had a bit of a tinctor modest in, but he didn't play great at all andhe ended up getting to around twenty, so yeah, I'm probably going to movedown from number three, but that's probably more just a fall for me thanthe average bloke in the fantasy community running backs. My rises aremy main rise, as pilch mentioned, as the passing offense goes down for thedolls cowboys something's got to go up, so I've got the Zik. He was actually mynumber thirty one going into the week and he had a bit of a blind here can'teven lie that Oline looks like it's back to their best and when he's going to get the majorityof staps he's going to score well, just because the yards peccaris going to begood, he's getting red zone stuff. The game scripts really really suited himon Monday night, and it probably will continue to if Dales keep playing thiswell. He had six red zone carries and three red zone targets, which is prettyamazing for running back when the risers dog Harris pilchers man numberitem a number fourteen moving into the week and I'll be honest. I actuallyhate this thing about fantasy because it's discrate what he put up on theweekend, but he had four red zone targets. So you can't really deny thathe had twenty targets in general, which is outrageous and he's not going to beaveraging that every week because, like Donte was out, Juju went out at halftime and yeah like their offenses and firing. Well, so I don't think he'sgoing to get that much every week, but his yards for carry was concerned, butrealistically I can't get any worse than it already is so yeah. I can't seewhy he's not going to be a top ten finish er at the end of theseason with that sort of usage which I hate to see because he had pretty muchno impact on the game, but anyways that's more of an issue with the wholesystem. So I won't. I won't blame the playoff and then I fall up before weget to you. Boys is Josh Jacobs. He was already down at like number twentyseven for me, but he's still rosted in quite a lot of leagues, so Payton Barber stepped in during hisabsence and tore it up. He had six red zone attempts and, like I think he wasin the top flight running back for the week or something like that. I think weJagai Return. You L obviously be the number one back, but now you've gotdrake. You've got barber, I just don't think he is really a start or now and Iwould definitely be trying to offload him. You still got some name value. I'dsay so yeah for me is a no go Josh Jacobs at the moment, curt who you'rerunning back rises and falls. I got a couple rises. First, one for meis going to be Robinson who was talking about before. For me he had lost a tidy bit of valuein the first couple weeks. Just given, I thought they were going to throw it alot more given. Obviously they spent their first draft pick on triplewarrants and they've got a reasonable quartet of receivers, but yeah it'spretty. It seems to be pretty obvious that they're going to start giving itto j rob both in the passing and running game. It seems to have pushedout hide a bit which is kind of what wasexpected to happen, as the season went on given j robs seems to be prettyelite and Tis just kind of your your steadfast running back. That seemed togo from TAME team in the League. So I think he's got some serious upside relative to his first two weeks and Ithink he showed that in that you stirred weight performance in turn. I also have a D D: Swiftmyself in the in the rises, wasn't hiring the man at the start ofthe season, as you boys would know, in fact was ripping people for draftinghim early, but I have to admit I was wrong: apologies togo er by ripped his ov, the man looks, looks elate. He doesn't necessarilyhave the the run game volume that you would like, but he's seems to be a latepass capture and he's getting tons of volume in that regard, which obviouslystacks up points on the PAP leagues for running backs.So he certainly shifted into my top dead.I'm not sure he's going to be maybe a top five. I think think he mightplatelet in terms of his is the outport but yeah. I certainly think he's goingto be a top ten, so definite riser. For me, relative to the star of the seasonin terms of follers there's a couple...

...got got meself Gibson. I think thisseen there needs to be a bit of a worry around, give something his performances.His performances were thought to be well. His High Besaras was thought tobe an increase in volume similar to the kind of cms numbers, which is what Iwas reading yesterday, but doesn't seem to be the case. They sendthe love and Kissie, so Akiti seems to get a lot of those short short runs andhe actually takes a lot of the red zone runs as well, which is a big concernfor Gibson, because you want those two days for your PPrunning backs. So I'm certainly not saying he's like twenty or something,but I just don't think he's going to be top ten like he was projected at thestart of the season and another one in terms of the fallers is going to be Damien Harris as well. He looks prettyearly that first week with a hundred yard performance but yeah. I think that that that excitement has kind of rubbed offso yeah. I think he's a he's a fold up, but not saying again, don't think it'sgoing to be outside, maybe top twenty five. I think he can still push push the toptwenty five yeah Damen Harris is like the most vanilla, fansy player reckonbecause you just got like no pass catching like it. Even when James Whitegot injured on the weekend, apparently they went to like j j Taylor and someother Bot for the catching stuff. I think Antonio Gibson's, a weird one. Ifeel like there's a strong correlation betweenhis performance and the defenses performance, because at the moment thedefense is plain like shit, which no one was expecting and I feel like heneeds the defense to play well to keep the games tight. So they run the ballmore, be at the moment, they're going down pretty early and they just giveMikis all the footy, because he is a bit of a weapon, a Pilch, your risesand falls man, Yep Chase Young, zero sack so far. This season, so hopefully he's a bust, but my rises James Robinson has a at it just lookslike an absolute beast and the roles getting better every week. So certainlyhim and then I've got Zack Moss as well. Zero. The Fort didn't play the firstweek and then, but now he looks like he's. The man in the Buffalo Backfieldso think he's got a bit of value and fallers. I've just got Joe Mixon, partly because I was very high on himcoming into the week and only one catch this week and obviously a poor o line. So it'skind of like Naji Harris but looks like he's going to be coping less passing,work so gonave to drop him down me rankings yeah, I feel like compared to NudgeHarris. I think the Cincinnati offense is better than that Pittsburg. So Ifeel like when things are going well, they won't require mixing check downswhere at the moment, Big Ben can only really is only really good enough tohear Nagi Harris about three yards away so yeah, sadly for Mixin I'll, behonest. I've not really paid attention to mixing because he's in a in a bit of a lock of situation nowleave a bit of a confusing explanation, but yeah. It doesn't have muchrelevance to us, but yes, sack Moss an interesting one. We all sort of expected this last year,didn't we but single tarry sort of held his own lastyear and now he's taken over and we love to seeit from Zakaria Moss, wide receivers pitch your rises and falls back rises, Dj more while since he played, but he looksback to his best, we all ever. I knew how talented the man was. It was just acase of I guess: Target Shire and how good the QB was. DONAL looks allright now: Robbie Anderson's, just nothing now so Mars, coping all thetargets back there, so he's going to be an absolute beast or fantasy. You won'teven need a score that many touch downs with this volume and also Odel back anplayed. This was it this first game believe it was his first game back andballed out so ave ave ter put him up there yeah he actually looked sick, oh Dale,who your falls, man and fallers. We actually forgot to write it down. Socome back to me all right. I we'll come back here. I'll do mine rises, I've gotcurtises ban. I believe I don't think you've traded him, but you have done alot of trade recently cold easily. He was my around my number twenty eightheading into the weekend. He had five red zone ties, which is something Ijust don't associate with: Cold Beasley, but that's good to see and yes, sand isbawled out and yes, digs is an absolute...

...freak, but beasely seems to always getenough woody, which is good to see an al and also back to his best, which wasa bit of a concern a week, one and two. So I think Beesley look at any thing,you're going to start in with that. Much. To be honest, I feel like it'smore of a bench player that you're going to chuck in during the buys, butI don't think he's one of the best options you can have there and I reckoneven though he's been scoring well just because I don't know we saw it lastyear. Just I think it's because his name like no one really is not like abig name player. I feel like you can almost feel like he's, usuallyundervalued, but yeah. That's my first rise and my other one is a bit more ofa rod on it's Corto Samuel, my man in my eye. As what at the moment, I'mgoing to wear you here boys time for some shocks all right so in his lastten last year, so I think it's between like week, eight and week, seventeen orsomething like that. He averaged sixteen point two six which for contexthad him at the wide receiver fourteen for that period. So assuming he comes off, I are this weekand assuming there's no like injury issues that will play again for the rest ofthe year. I think it's just a very interesting gamble, he's only Ross andfifty seven percent of leagues- and this is a guy who was wide receiverfourteen for a large chunk of last year. Yes, he down grades to weaker offense,but in that sense I also think his targets, probably increase he's onlytwenty five, so he's still pretty young and they're also paying him aguaranteed twenty two million over the next two years. So they obviously ratehim highly he's going to slit into a wide receiver. Two position, I think,he's going to take a lot of the footy away from Hump preys and Darmi Brown and Yeah. As Code said, they're runninggames not looking great right now, and I reckon he's going to be a veryinteresting option for fantasy players, and I reckon he's definitely worth wayby addition. If he is not rosted in your league, because yeah, I feel likepeople definitely forget about some of the I R players early in the season andwhen they come off, you can usually get them well, in this case in forty threepercent of league, you can get in for absolutely nothing so yeah. I reckonhe's definitely worth a gamble and even in leagues it is rosted. I reckon if Idon't know if you've got like a block like Jacobe Myers, or something likethat. I reckon that wouldn't be the worst trade or something like that andthen my fall. It's another one of my men on the MISSUS Milkman line up. It'sDebo Samuel, look im up like that low on him, but Ijust had him really really high, like I actually had him in my top ten, whichis pretty outrageous, but I still think he's being undervalued by everyone. Ithink he will be top twenty, but yeah. I you can kid all sort of lookedto get back into the swing of things last week I you had four red zonetargets himself. Didn't he catch one, but anyways he's obviously getting moreattention than Kiddal can't remember, O Stout Line, but I reckon you had likesix catches or something so yeah. I think both of them their usages, arereturning to what we are expecting and obviously that's going to affect Debo.He still had eleven targets on the day and he was on j Alexander. So you canforgive him for not having a Blinder, but I just don't think his productionout of week, one and two was sustainable and I think we saw that inweek. Three so yeah he's a bit of a fool for me, but I still think he isbeing a little bit underrated by people, because I don't think week one and twois a fluke. I just think it was a little bit inflated of what you reallywill give us, but yeah. He isn't going to be an interesting one to watch CotisYour wide receivers van for the risers going to start off tCooper Cup. I wasn't too high and I at the start ofthe season. Obviously I still thought it was probably top twenty and I'vebeen pretty waris of chaffing in my top ten until now. Just because, obviously,why receives could be Prevol Tile, they can obviously have some insane weeksand lock it's a prime example of this, where they can have a couple in certainweeks and then they can really fall off a cliff for the next couple, but itseems to be a cooper cups. Production is going to be something that's prettyconsistent throughout the IT Stafford. So He's a definite riser for me and I've en chucked him in my top topfive year, I'll probably go over around six on my way receive rank is, but ifhe does it again this week, I don't see how I can keep me outside of my topfive hit be solidified for Gur my top five, while receive ranking so massiverise for that man also good to Arizona receiving court, a hopkins in my riseshotentot in Jud, to say the least on Sunday. So I think, if he's injured in out fora bit which he might be just because he...

...actually did look like he was in, andstrife that there's a chance that a kirk andrank and have an increasing production Kok actually looked pretty good in thatis first few weeks as well. I think he's the fifteenth best produce of PPpoints at the moment in terms of wide receivers, so he's look pretty solid,had a good volume as well good volume as well. So those two are both risesand also I'm going to give a share that my rises to the I up or such as likeCherry D and Michael Thomas, if you've gone through the hardship of havingthem for the last couple weeks, and they are going into week week for aswell there's their trade values going up. First, the and you've gone throughthe heart of having them, so you might as well keep them now and get them backin the field. Jare Judy obviously look delete in that first. First, threequarters: I think he had six or seven tags and was six six, our catches forseven times or something, and he looked Pretty Ely and obviously Mike MichaelThomas's talents pretty much unquestionable, so he's yeah, both of them are big rises in mybooks and if you've got them, keep them in terms of of folders. Hopkins is certainly one for me justbecause of that that injury, I think it's a- is a roof of some sort. So Iwould just be a bit wary of him and I've also got a J Brown. His firsttwo weeks didn't look that great and that, obviously he seems to have aninjury as well and it's week a week I believe, is the hamstring. He obviously still has some some tradevalue and there's also a lot of competition there with holier and thenobviously Henry seems to be gained all a lot more again and seems to beinvolved in a past catching game this year as well. So I think, if you've gota J Brown, add totally a Jones, for that matter, just be be wary of themjust given Henry and the AMANITA need to be fed in that offense yeah. Absolutely. I agree with that.One both to be honest, could TAK colio and there as well they're, both a bitof a worry at the moment. Aj Green he's actually a bit of a spicy option. To behonest, not that relevant in our league,because old matinal thousand, but anyway he's like actually playingpretty well and yeah. I've got a couple O my top five pilch in your top fire aswell. Do I remember my top to yeah so that just shows how high we areon him: Absolute Beasts, I'm as a Robert Wood, a woods owner, I'm hopingthat defenses pull their finger out and just double team, the prick but yeah. Idon't even know if he's defendable at the moment, his plane that well alsojust got to address pilchers comment about chase young, and that is probablythe worst call of all time saying. I'm a giants fans a you're, absolutely, but my pouches gonefrom the lines. Yeah, that's what I do is an now to have giants and you were frosting the packet they. Idon't oil on Rogers and Adams. I, like you, actually respect it but, like I don'tknow how you have this ability to just pick up die hard like straight awaylike I cannot do it like I've. I've tried in the past and I can't can'tcare about a team that I'm a lot my lines. Friendship was never really afan chip to be fair. Well, I don't know kin saying again the drinking about afew losses, Ma a you're locked in the giants. Now I'll give you that, butlike yeah, it is rot for you to the point where you're talking shit aboutdivision. Rivals like come on brother relax but anyways I tied ends that willgo actually Jav. Did you pick your full of Pilch Yeah? I realized. I alreadysaid it in the QB section. It was cooper and lamb, but I would like toalso throw in my man, Alan Robinson, who just can't cop a good qb to savehis life feel bad for him and I hope you can turn it around, butit's not looking good yeah, definitely yeah. I wasn't thatkeen on him to be honest from about week to on words but yeah his values diminishing pretty far soI'd be offloading that bad boy tight ends will go we'll. Let you start pilltoss to your rises and falls man yeah. This is always the hardestsection. Bar I've gone with Tyler Coquin in the risers seems like the Vikings new man and he had a great game. Then you hadlike seven for eighty in a touchdown or something on the week end. So he looksquite interesting and then fall or no clue but I'll, saycul comit,...

...don't don't really had much to pack itup. Actually, staleing N so was receiving some hype and doesn't looktoo good, so yeah. I was somewhat keen on him in the preseason, but yeah.Definitely not that relevant unless you're in a very deep league are theirleagues are like two tie ends that would be fucking ro yeah. There are tisome weird play with life. That's weird legs at her that I would love to getinto some weird shit, but, like, unfortunately, we don't have the mates to be able to do that, butanyways. Yes, I agree with both your calls.There Minnesota do love a tight end as well. Like Rudolph was one of hisfavorite targets, especially in the red zone, and then Eve Smith got a lot ofaction, but he's obviously out for the years. So if conference steps into thatcould be an interesting ad, my riser is Mike Jessiky, formal, formerly of good, fantasy, fameand then sort of fell by the wayside at the end of last year turned into anabsolute pile of Shit, but he was my number sixteen gone into theweek and he had thirteen targets on the weekend. One Red Zone, Jacobi recept,was just like in the last quarter. He was just hitting up just Seke, prettymuch every play and boddle the shout out to percent and waddle forcompleting the first ever pass for a safety never been done before, but pretty weird footy, but yeah it lookslike Jussee could be a top ten level tit tit and if he's going to get thissort of production, like I don't think he's going to score many. But if he'sgetting thirteen tires, you don't even need him to score anything. So yes, itobviously is a tough one in Miami they've got Brosette and theneventually to come back in but yeah. I think it's definitely an interestingoption, as maybe a bench add. My full are probably a little bit harsh becauseit is only one bad week, but it's the hock. He was my number three headinginto the week actually number four, because Ye do, but he only got twotargets which, for me, is a bit of a concern, because you can forgivesomeone having a bad week when they're, like maybe he's, had six targets, threecatches and he's just been defended. Well, but I only get too tired is a bitof a concern. He's surely going to start getting a lot of attentionbecause realistically is their only player? Is there only path capturesworth anything? So, like he's only the white receivers,what quinter Safis you're not really going to double team him. I so lookslike the hocks going to have a hard time of things. In terms of that, Istill think he's going to be very good, but I thought he was maybe going todistance himself from the rest of the pack, like Your Bark Andrews as yougrunts you Logan Thomas's, but maybe not. Maybe it's still going to be.Maybe it's just going to be the best of those lots, so yeah, I'm a little bitlower on the hock. After last weekend, Cortis your tided rise and falls man rise is going to start with. Doctrinshirts played a massive game on the WeekendSans a beginning. A significant red zone to chair, which is quiteinteresting, shows a bit of promise as well. He's had fortin catches in thefirst three weeks, which isn't too bad for a titan that was is probably goingto sit around that fifty ten fifteen mark may be pushing into maybe like tento eight range but yeah, I think, there's certainly some upside and ifyou're look into chuck a tid end as a backup on your bench. I'd certainlylook at shot as an option, because the man has got a reasonable target share,which is pretty impressive, given that cowboy offense in terms of follows, I'm going to chuckin both the New England titans. I wasn't sure how I was going to workat the Star e year in terms of who, if there was going to be adominant tight end or if they're, just going to simply just shit, share the ortargets, but it seems to be the case at the Goo kind of share the targets, butit's going to be like fluctuating per wick or there's going to be noconsistency, no way of telling who's going to be copping the targets for aparticular week. So if I was a fantasy manager, I'd be staying well away fromboth of them, because you can't guarantee anything in terms theirperformances week a pol week. So you're only going to be streaming them incertain cases, and it seems to be there's no point in doing that, becauseyou does have no clue how they're going to perform yeah. I still don't evenknow why they brought them to the Patriots like such a road dubium, andthey would. I had them good money as well, but yeah. I completely agree withyou there, the short ones, an interesting call, because I actuallywas sort of him andhigh on him in the...

...pre season. But what spoke to me wasBlake Jalan, coming back from his ACL, but looks, like short, is just remainingthe number one big dog, so yeah he's definitely an interesting one. Also I'll get your voice as on thiscouple, injured, reserve players coming off. Do they have any value at all I'llpitch you three here. I've already talked about Cortesana, but al. There'sa throu thinking off of my head. Go to you be. Let me know if any of them havevalues. John Ross, the Kil Harry and Rochad Bateman, anyof them relevant to fantasy Bateman. That's it yeah, Jackin he's worthpicking up all. Is it a wait and see operation if you're in a O, yeah? Twelve ManLeague? Yes, definitely interesting cut. What are your thoughtson those three agree? Kish that Bateman is the onlyone worth picking up and in terms of a leak like hours, which is a ten manleague. Even maybe a twelve man league, I'm still on a wait and see see clinecircumstance because a I don't think you will have much targer volume tostart to start off were walking the first two three weeks, probably goingto be pretty poor in terms of the expectations and then he needs tocompete with Brian as well, and brand's actually looked pretty solid sary farto start the season so yeah. I would definitely wait and see,but I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being pretty elite because he hadsome some some talent coming out of college andyeah people were frothing him. So I would just wait n see, but I would betrigger happy with with picking him up on the waves in a couple weeks. Yeahactually going to be an interesting watch this week against a good Denveropposition. If he does play, in fact, we don't even know if these tree areplaying. I don't know why I can't get off new Kil Harry, like I refuse toaccept your shit, but he might be. I don't know Ye like what I'm pretty surehe was the first round pick. Then he was the first ram pig and I think hewent before Dh Metcalf, but yeah I don't know. I know I know drafts, noteverything, as we have seen some pretty weird calls in the past or out moving into the preview. There'ssome good games this week as they're always a huge for us, Ozzy's, daylightsaving, starts on Saturday so Monday morning goes from three to four am,which is massive, very excited for that more foody towatch for the lads and then in a matter of weeks. It goes all the way to fiveam so you can pretty much watch the whole action which I'm told you about I'm actually toy for this week, justeven an extra hour footy there's some good Games on TV as well. Obviously,the headline actors, Tom Brady heading back to Fox brought with his but boys,some other interesting games that are being televised here. We've got the panthers up against thecowboys. That's a real test for both sides to see wherethey're at the ravens up against the broncoes will find out if the bronchosor anything and there's a few other interesting ones. Also, it came to seeBarry versus Lawrence on Thursday night. Forty could be. Shit could be good. Whoknows all right sure bet we are yet to get one of these wrong, which you wouldexpect, but I don't want to Jink. It me and pilch are two from two curtisesfour from four, because he just that's how he growls just setting extra shitbut we've all gone different ones here, which is, I think, at first so far,this season go. Who Have you gone with her man times over the jets jet stink? So I don't even need toexplain more than that by the fact that they can't even put points in a board.So is an absolutely joke at the moment and if you're a fan of the jets. I'm sorry for you to be honest, becauseI'm talking it's it's the Melbourne, Forty Club or the truth, as in late.Two thousand tens early, two thousand and two thousand and sorry wit, late tothousands early two and as ten just it's a shit show is what it is. So ifyou feel sorry for the jets fans, yes, I actually feel bad for them. I'm goingto be interested to see how Wilson goes this week. Obviously, The Times defenseisn't horrible, but it's one of I think it's the worst who's played so far likethey fled the pants as the Patriots, the Broncos, who are all through prettygood defenses, so definitely going to be a big test for Wilson. If he hasanother like three interception day against the titans, then, likeobviously he's not crap, but then there are real worries staring to come infrom me, and probably everyone else. I pill choose your short Bet Mat. My sorbet will be the chiefs to beatthe eagles...

...just no way it doesn't happen like chiefs coming off two losses in arow like it's just and the eagles looked real bad against the cowboys, so yeah yeah. I thought the as defensewas going to like make the cowboys game tight, regardless of how the offenseplayed, but they got blown out so yeah. I understand that one I've gone thebookmakers large as favorite bit of a dog act, but I've got the bills hostingthe Texans. I just don't think even though the Texans defense actuallylooked somewhat okay on Thursday night forty last week I just don't see aworld where they keep the bills below thirty points here, and I don't reallysee a world where they put up twenty past themselves. So yeah, I think thebills when the bills weren't easy and they did say, they're, going to takethe training, wheels off Davis Mills this week and they're going to let himthrow a bit more, which is going to be interesting to see because last weekthey didn't really give themselves a chance to win the way they're playing.But yeah that's going to be one to watch upside of the week. This is meanpilcher under feated. So far, curtis is two from four and he's gone to againthis week. So He's you know he's in he has a larger margin for Ara, but healso has a larger margin for success. If you know what I mean, so I actuallystart us off with this one. I struggled for an upset this week. I don't I just don't like it at all, but because when I looked it was sort ofconfusing the ravens were underdogs the line but head to head. They werefavorites, so I didn't consider that under dog, because otherwise I probablywould have back then, but I'm going Seattle to beat Curtis's niners at home. I did some research and since theopening of Leeby Stadium, Seattle, six Trem, seven and the only time they lostwas in over time in two thousand and eighteen, so they don't hate going toSanta Clara at all and getting the job done against cal China hands men andthe last time. Seattle were one and three the one and two right now so alost he would make them one and three was thousand a eleven, and that was theyear before Russell Wilson got drafted so yeah. I think this is a good chance.I'm still high on the forty niners. I still like them a lot. I predict themto have twelve winds and I'm not really turning the lights off on that call.But I just think Seattle, after a really disappointing Viking. This game,after a disappointing lost to the titans they've, been getting cut up bythe run, which is a little bit of a concern, because the forty nine is aregood, running offense. But I just think Seattle will get the job done here andwin in a pretty high scoring affair, which will, I think I'll, be a Gogan towatch even a tsar on TV so for Australians pilch. What is yourupset, nay or upset? Is In de to beat Miami Miami not too high on them. They haven'tlooked unreal one and two, and then in de on three- and I think this is this-has to be the bounce back game for them. Otherwise, you an rual playoffs out, soI think they'll their. They especially will come in red, hot and they'll getthe job done yeah. They need it pretty much on the review episode. I relegatedthem from my playoff picture, but win here who knows could keep them backin the mix and they definitely need it. It's going to be just see what Miamidoes, because their defense has been giving up a lot more points than theywould be liking at the moment. So that's going to be an interesting oneto quarterbacks, not of you know, elite Fan at the moment, but we'll see howthat goes. Curt you're to upsets mat. First One got lines over the bears ifthe BASS place stupid as authentic game, like they did on the weekend for amobile quarterback, where they just left him in the pocket with five men defensive lines, I think they could bein strife because the lines have not looked bad or and to be fair, gave theRaven to run for their money. So yeah, I'm actually a bit of higheron the lines these days than at the start of the season and then got thepanthers over the cowboys. The Panthers D actually looks luck.Scary, like it looks good, so I think there's a chance that thepanties can go for and no Dardale, as we've said earlier, doesn't look toobad. He need to get rid of the fumbles. That seemed to be happening, but I meanDj Moras, looking Ale Robbie Anderson probably get some more volume mentalisnow given, given that same SAS out habit didn'tlook bad at all, so I think the panthers are a real chance to give. Thecowboys are wrong for their money and maybe get off the top yeah a this one'sactually on TV and Australia. So on...

...channel seven, so Kina watch that onein the early kick off coogate way, really we'll see if the panthers arethe real de or you'd have to say the lines bears a bit more of a road calledus. The starting quarterback effect your decision making there at all like.Are you happy to take the lions, even if Dolton starts or a full start? Don't think so, like obviously, whatwas like most up saying about the Oricon the weekend at tors, the just infumes P, was the fact that it was a like. It was an offensive scheme thatdidn't Studi at all. We was like the Dolton scheme and there was no there'sno PS. There was no guinea out so had the pocket, they just let him sit thereand let molls Garrett and clue you just run over the top of a very averageoffensive line. So to be honest, I don't think so because I think I surelymatinees like shifted up the offensive scheme to give the man a chance o thanjust seeing the pocket and have one point one yards passing yards, which isdisgusting to say the least so yeah. I don't think it really changes myopinion on the game. I still think the lines, no matter who the quarterback isand the matter of the offensive game is a chance, because Matt Naggie is a jokeand need to get the hell out of she. Yeah he's not going to last much longerbecause they got this one. But then, after that, they've got six really hardgames, so they could easily be to an eight or something, and he won't be inthe building in that point, so yeah, but must win for the bears and Detroitdefinitely deserve a w. After the last couple of weeks, right spreads,pilchers, leading the way here he's the only one over fifty percent he's threefrom five curtis is one from four I'm two and a half from eight. I don't know I'm not really confidenton any of these three. To be honest, but my first one I've got Washingtonthe favorites against Atlanta, a the lines only one and a half which I thinkis pretty outrageous. Yes, the Falcons are coming off a wind, but they be apretty awful giant line up, and I just don't see how this defense keepsplaying as poorly as it does feel like the Washington defense comes out, makesa statement keeps out land to below fifteen points, and I think theWashington attack is good enough to put up you know twenty five or something soyeah. I think I'm pretty happy with that one. My Next One's Baltimore atthe line they were. This is obviously at the time of recording. They areunder dogs. The lines one point at Denver. Yes, Denver looked really goodso far, but they've played a combined opposing record of o an nine,so they haven't really been tested yet- and I think Baltimore is one of thestranger test you can get with the way they play on our fence. Yes, theydidn't look great against Detroit, but Marquis Brown dropped two touchdownspretty much so yeah. I think they play better than the school line suggests,and this is going to be an interesting to want to interesting one to watch aswell. So Hopefully Baltimore get up here and then my other one is Tampa Bay.The line is seven, their obviously favorites heading into New England. Idon't know what I saw from the Patriots on the weekend against the saints Ijust don't think they're a good team. I thought their defense is going to beable to carry them this year, but it doesn't look like it's playing at thelevel that it needs to be to do that and, although it's always scary to betagainst build Bella check, I just think the tamper defense will come out make astatement after a few poor weeks and also, I think the offense is too hot tohandle so and Abe should be back this week, despite Scotty Bill like going toI r Curtis your spreads man, I've got the Times at eight, see and ahalf. Sorry sorry do the jets fans, but the times are winning by more thanseven and a half the brands at two and a half. I thinkthat is a saucy spread and then the titans at plus sixteen point, five, astory, the text center at Plus Sixteen Point Five. I don't think the Texansare too bad to be fair, like they actually look. Look all right and millsto be fair, looks okay, so yeah. I don't think they're going tobe losing your by more than sixteen point, five so point, so I've got them in my breads. Yes, sixteen for five.That is the large. That's a pumping buffalo cover it, the Browns Vikingsone. Might Let pol talk about a little bit more but yeah. That's a spicy one.I was a bit scared because the Vikings did look good on the weekend, butbrowns have deep and better side. Don't I think, that's value for sure pit.Your spreads may yeah. I've also got the brands.

I just there obviously a way, a betterteam than the Vikings, but I do actually have a kind of a bad feelingabout this one, but when to lock it in any way they are playing away and yeah. I could just see the vikingscausing an upset, but obviously I think like in alllikeliness they'll cover and I've got the giants plus seven and a halfagainst the saints. I just back of the giant's ability to keep a game close. The last two losses have been by onepoint and three points last season. They did all year lost by two pointsevery week and the saints offense still stinks. So I'm not expecting a highscoring game at all, and then I have got same as you cork,the Ravens out, plus one over Denver. I think they will just they'll just winthat game. So back I in yeah, I'm actually very came for the BaltimoreDenver Game. It's a very interesting tactical matchup. I have to say thechannel seven for those astralis is the channel. Seven line up is kind ofbeating the foxtail line. Up This week we've got panthers cowboys and RavensBroncos, as opposed to chiefs eagles and packers steels, like I, don'treally give a shit about those two pumpings but yes excited for another weekend offooty excited for actually not an extra hour of sleep, but an extra hour footyafter daylight savings kicking on Saturday looking forward to anotherhectic week of footy. Good luck to ill, say: good luck to all the teams, butit's like what the fuck. While I say that but good like to everyone'sfantasy sides, you to as well and versing culture, but I am probablygoing to get fisted so yes, I in that there see boys. I.
