NFL Top 100 & NFL Fantasy RB Breakouts, Sleepers and Busts - Episode 49

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Pilch once again joins the show to discuss which running backs outside the top 15 have high upside, should be avoided or have a high floor for the 2020 NFL Fantasy season. The boys also discuss the NFL Top 100 list and suggest a few changes they would make in their lists.

Walcing back to the honoablepotcassishis episode, forty nine of the show once again joined by ChristianPiltur. How are we mate? Yeah, not bad at all. Mat here, Y yeah pretty wellactually, once again the weather's not too bad, so I'm outside recording, ifyou wouldave, been able to sae that by now- and you should, but if you'relistening just a bit of context into my life ooutside, I don't go ounside too often these days. Well, we're not allowed to.Are we but thought I'd get out for this little conversation Um? How are yougoing there? That's that's the more important thing, the y! Ah as good asas good as we can be going ove see. We can't really do much at the moment, butgetting through getting through Itawron Abit of Tan eyebrasslet. I say that May,which is a don't know what you're talking o Theother little bit embarrassing there, butthat's right m. So today I've been wanting to talk about this for a fewweeks. 'cause. I I don't know why I really like it, but the NFL top onehundred is a list that the players vote on and they release one to a hundred.Well, this year was like one two O hundred and ten. It was btwed, but it'sbasically one to a hundred. They nominate who they think AFE. The bestplay is in the league and you end up with a list of all the leagues bestplays, and it's Bak some pretty interesting debates. It's supposed tobe based on the last season played so the twenty nineteen in a fell season,but often historical biases clearly take place, and today we're going to talk aboutpeople who wethink arated too high too loans et Cetera M. I can't lie I usedto go by this list religiously, like I generally thought it was a factual listlike if you were third in the cornerback rankings, you were t e thirdcalling back in the League but um as I'm follown. The League more the lasttree seasons ive begun to realize that it's not the most accurate things. Sothat's whatl we're going to expore today, an after this. After that we'regoing to talk about running back nf l, fantasy running back Um ruffies boltes,like we do with the quarterbacks the other week. Gointo talk about a fewplays Ho might not get picked up in the first two rounds, but you know might besolid options later in the draft or they might save you. If Y, you knowforget a running backball may be people to look out for on the waves so get tothat after this. But to start us off we're going to talk about the NF L topone hundred sir, we could just go big early, so wes put it up into threesections: we're talking about soon in the top twenty Salln from O thousanty.Fifty all around that mid ter and then Solon at the back end of the list, soJoana startusoff Mat, who have you got lined up in the top twenty that youwould like to talk about thet selection, yeah. I think people might still beclinging onto a bit with this one, but I'm sure a lot of people will admitthat Tom Bridy has absolutely no right to be still fourteenth Um one clear example: Whith it was Aron Roger's and hate had more yards,more touchdowns, more win, less interceptions whichte every single statyou can think of, and he was righted lower than him, so that Iin t an more surprising with thisone is de Chalmatson but yea and even even like duck press got way down. Ithink he was forty or fifty but yeah. I eak four DA NC, justoutrageous for Bradyits, O they're, obviously still living off Um livingoff the past, a bit wit a few of those selections, yeah, that's kind of the general themeof today's episode. I think I don't know about you other selections, but alot of mine are people being rated below like formar legends of the game. Woll they still are legions. You don'treally stop becoming a legend, but you know what I mean thee ar their prime um an was that the main one that tied youoff in that top twenty. So we were talking about it a bit last night. Also,I didn't think Tonj Hopkins. He clearly had a worse season than hedid the previous season. Yet he was rated like four spots high up at numberseven, so I don't rarely say how that were tothere but yeah I felt bright. AnBrady was more outrageous ye. I didn't mind the Hopkins one, though, because Istill think he's in the top three wine receivers and which he was in the list.So I gether it' a bit weird that he...

...dont increase position, but I didn'tmind it yeah anteris of the quarterbacks, even Rogers, are overDishal Malzon. I didn't really write that. To be honest, I don't have the stats yt, because thisis not my selected one but um. Just from following the league I saw TochalMalson was a lot better. Single handedly carried his side to theplayoffs, where Rogers had a, although hes famously doesn't have manyreceiveens around him. He had a faily good tame. One of the better runningbacks, one of the be water save is a great muchait. Ery Pence Yeyeah were toshow Lotson, although he had dandrew Hopkins, who was dealing with nothingand still Gotento the playoffs and did really well Um. I also think Nikabosa,I know there's a lot o hype there, but I do think he was a little bit high aswell. But that's just me, but the one I picked is I've gone with the tide ends.Actually, this is not so much the order. I don'tmind that Kelseys a kiddle is above Kelsey, but I don't know how there'seleven spot discrepancy between them. So if you look at these statistics,Kelsey played so Kelsey's in t e eighteenth kiddle was in it. Sevenh Carsi played two more games. Han kitdleUm kide had a high like catch rate, so he caught more ofthe tigets thrown out, and so that's y Inki as Colm, but Kelsey had um over two hundred yards more than him.He averaged more than two yards, two yards more game than kitdle. They hadthe exact same yards m per reception and they had the exact same touch:downs on five Ono. Sorry, Um Kelsey had more yards perperception, they ad thesame yards, but targets Um, so very similar starts they're. Basically, allthe same, if not in Kellshi's favor, the only one that is in kittle's favoris the Cathray and I'm not too sure wher they'e, whipped out the elevenspot difference there. To be honest, I think our best they should be likeright next to each other in the list, if not Kelsea had a kiddle. I know people are strong in the kiddlecamp, Oer Celsey, but I think with Celty Stat. You can't really argue withthat. I think Yoa have the fifth most receiving yards or something in theleague as a Tighdt End, which is pretty outrageous. Um People will argue thatit's just because he's on a good offence, a San Francisco, just as goodas an offensive Kansas. I know they don't have the star quarterback, butthey move ou the field so easily and B. That actually almost goes againstKelsy's case, because there's more targets fror my homes to throw to sohe's going to be, you know not always going to be looking at Kelsey everyplay: wher Gopalo, legit n through it to cat kiddle. Only so I think. Once again, I don't know if I thinkKelsey should a hundred percenby above him. If I had to vote one way oranother iwoud probably go kill s Hav a kibble, but I think to find a elevenspot discrepancy there to have kiddle the seventh and kills at Eighteenthwhen they pretty much had identical, starts. If Din, Kelsey's favor, I thinkthat was pretty pretty ambitious from them yeah. I must, I must admit, when Isaw that I was pretty surprised as well. I Sang Kitdol all the way up at seventhand then obviously Iwas. I expecting Kelso to be to be righted above him,but yeah yeah. Yes, I'm not too sure about that one Um er for the top twenty. I also put a bitof a Dr on Cali Mac, sneaking in at nineteenth, but I'll talk about thatone in one of my latest selections m now in the mid tear range. Who are youlooking at here? There's quite a lot in this one? Actually, but a lot more likedefensive, the ones that I noted h. Who did you go with the YEA? I've actuallygone with Nichab, which may be a ite bit of a pod Bou. I thinkheis criminally underwrighted. He was. It was second in russing yards onlybehind dereck Henry and he was behind a pretty putrid offensive line. So he'she's carried that backfield and some of the running back todies. The wasrighted lower than luck, Um, Arn Jones Zak. I believe Kamara was a couple ofspots head of him as Wel, who missed luck, a few names and clearly ot o way,worse sason than Chob, so ye. I think thirty four was far too low for ChabTha ye should have been in the top at least the top five running backs at thebare minimum, and probably definitely into that top thirty range. It's an interesting one 'cause. It'skind of. I don't have the stats here, but it'dbe interesting to look at that. Ol PURPO, like scrimmage yards soreceiving I rushings because obviously soun like Camar, would have him in thatstart. Youd imagine they're rts interesting, I will say the touchdown'sChub because of his offence was so much worse yeah I would have baelest Arrangyeah exactly yeah, but and also sign...

...that would go against him as he's gotpretty good wide receivers, so um they're likely to be targed in thetouchdown in the Red Sone as opposed to him, but I back it yeah. I did see him downthere. I thought for the second Russia leading rush in the league that waspretty low. I don't think you'd see that too often but yeah. I think I W. I wonder if theplayers take this into account, how the team went. Guess: Thats soming you coanput in those Gurs that you mentione Fathor 'causeexcept Pho Zique, theother two. They went deep into the playoffs Ben I graityoit's, pretty stiff umrushing yards is what a running backs ment to be meant to do so, if he's thesecond best out it. Basically, it's pretty pretty up to be down there,especially when Aaron Jonesis, like eighty percent of his case, isjust touch down Y, AH, which is like him running five yards or him beinglobbed one five yards so but yeah not fair enough Um, the one I picked in this one. I'veactually just picked a whole position here. I've gon inthe outside line backposition. I just don't cop the order at all m some of the other ones. I didknow it down, though I thought Jamal Adams was pretty stiff to be that low.I think he was in the thirdies. I think he's a top twenty playn and fl by just comfortably. Who else have we got tradavius white,the cornerback from the Buffalo Bills? I think he was pretty stiff to be putdown below m jail and Ransy M. Even Richard Sherman actually Um and then Ithink Jimmy G Jimmy G. What did you think if he 's position? I think he arthirty. Do you think that's true too? I don't know I was. I was pretty torn onthat one 'cause his ies down his case is pretty much only the fact that hemade the superbowl yeah I put him down as overrated like het, should be lower.But then I looked at the quarterbacks below him and it was kind o like kirtcousins was like in the fifties. TENIS was in the sixties, so it was kind oflike I guess Sho. Could? U UNDERSTAND IT? I think Josha Allen was down at likeeighty, which I think was a bit stiff but yeah. I I I can see the argumentI's pretty stiff to put a super bowl, um quarterback too low, but yet justsaw that one was an interesting pic but yeah outside line backer. So in thismid in this little char, these are the guys I was interested in. We've gotShabar thirty seconds. The SAC winner, Andcosadara Smith, of the Greenbaypackers Um Shackbar, was in at thirty seconds. Aar Smith was in at fortyeighth and I think theres, two e e criminally dogged M J J wat was in Tj.What Sorr I was in a twenty five here, also probably too low, but Calil Macwas at nineteenth and von Millar was at twenty six. If you look at tackles for a loss,Barrett and Smith were both in the top foor and the League and Vonmila was actually the second worst out of these blokes.In that stat and Vomila was M. Twenty two spots: Higher Than Zedarrosmith andsix Bots Hig, an Barre n Barrett, also had over doubled the SAK per gane. Thatvomilla did vomilla only had eight sacks shacbarret had nineteen point.Five Sa Dary Smith had thirteen point five Um and then in terms of fourtefumbles Vonmilla didn't have a single false fumble shacbarret had six. So howthey've put von Millabob Shackbarret when shacbarrt lads him in every singlestat is a little bit beyond me. If a monest, so I think Shacqubarr waspretty stiff to miss out n. That top twenty there, if not, maybe notnecessarily in the top twenty but the other guys above em, should be below inmaybe they'd keep him in that Um. Thirty second position, but I thinkthot was pretty Yuck and ther's the Dairi Smith. He stats Ar Pretty juicey as well outof the six plays. I did research for, I think he was forth in SAS above himwere chanlajone shackbarrt and t j what, but he had more than kill Mac anineteenth and von Milla, a twenty six Um and tackles for loss, as I said before,he was folrth and Thatsta in the whole league, whereas Kali Mac had nine lessthan him. He was down at like seventy for the league and five millions atlike forty for the League, so I think Cali mccandvonmila were kind of. I don't know they were theirreputations, basically gotten s, the selection. I think they both had offyears last year. I'm not saying they couldn't bounce back the issue aboutthings at Ar Smeth and shackbarrer in particular, wer seriously dogged to bethat lower and t j Wa as well was probably pretty unlucky to be belorice,alittle Mac, so yeah, that's basically all I wanted to save for those fellows. That does not make a lot of sense atall. They h they definitely cling onto past years with these weas selections and it's a jargetshackbaried in particular Um like he...

...genuinely bait um he baked meal in every single stat andthen Kli Mac, Arnley, Bat shackbarrrt in Um possessions, defend. So I thinkthat means like swats and like Um, tipons and stuff, like that Um so verystiff shockbark. But I also think that Dara Smith was a bit stiff to be thatlower Um, we're not the biggest fanas Ar Smith, but that's just 'cause. Hemakes so many plays every game that he you know has a lot of time to celebrateand stuff. So that's probably mor that's probably saying how good he is,if anything but yeah, that's it for the mid tea anyone else. The youthought wasdodgy in there or not. Really? U What, by the way, I know you're a big DalvinFan, but what did you think of Dalvan Cooka? Twenty one? Oh yeah, he was another one that Ithought. Chibd probably should have been yeah hard any well yeah you Hav tomention him before h saw him ther. I wasn't gon mention it, but I doremember that yeah now moving onto the long range picks,so the guys who they'e still oe high quality players but down in the lest Mfor this one I know you've got o wie receive it to be honest. Wi receive iswhere the most controversial picks in this they had Odel Becan, lorryfitgeGerald Decay, nekcaff and your guys. Well who, to be honest, I don't thinkany of them are in the same league. There's L E A lot of different levelsgoing on there. I went with a defensive ember, we'll come to me in a second m.What do you think of your man? Yeah? Well, as you just said, there's aboutsix witer savers to choose from lat a just in outrageous spots here, but I'vegone with H, dvante Adams- I I don't know how thisbloke is still like. No one cops him as in a laterecaver in the media, and I don't understand it like he's. He missed afew dames, but if he adjust like his averages per game, he's in that topfivewide receiver class easily with Hopkins holios, tarehils, Mirchael,Thomas's and yet he's all the way down at number. Fifty four- I just do notunderstand it at all. Like wt, I think, he's fourth IRACNES. Fourth, I thinkYeh Holio Thomas and Hopkinsagr Agrean Iracan his the next best tyrik may bemore effective than him. But that's just 'cause he's rapid, like yeahanadams Adams is like the only target in his offense, which means heacops allthe attention. Opposition corners Ber. The faculty iswithin like ten or fifteen spots to to our Larry. Fitz is just it's justoutrigteus atriht Hes, Melar Ardelbeckam. Isn't he um debecamoae, six or somting? It was,I think, never really. Couse th Um Beckam was above landry right andLandry liturally Aam, Cav Yeah Landre got dogged as well he's not in the sameconvosation as Dovonta anmals, but even him to be Bel, becommen, nearfuge,geralds, Bi Yock, but there's a lot there's a lot of a Yak, a Brier, an bit.Try O look it as well. He was he was Um. I think it was only three spots abovedecame that car yeah he was vit better than Makof yeah.There's a lot of harparound mecaugh. We I understand the potential R imassivean fast but um yeah, not sure how he's in the top hundred players. But Adamswas absolutely dogged. He he himself will be filthy with that list. Yeah.Hopefully, Itsgoto he's going to have to do it again this year as well. Ifthe Gran badpacket is going to be any good, the MEBER, absolutely no one JimmiGraam left someone the other day just went down injured like Debon funchessor some funtious yea he's ther watersave race yeah, so it's Legit,Valdas, Gantlin, lazard and then thee's de Bonteso he's going to be compingtriple Tams, each Wa yeah. Good luck to him M he's going tohave to do it again if the pack isn't going to be any good, but hopefullynext year he's in the top fifty at least, if not the top thirty but yeah,it's Pretty York hat he's down there yeah I din't get it hundred percentagree with you, in my opinion, Hee's the fourth or fifth best. I can't think of anyone outside tha,topped tree who's better than him puffor Mabe, tyracule yeah. That's verystrange Um! Someone else I want to mention before Igoine to Min Buda Baker of the Arizona cardinals he's a safety. He was rankedI ninety fifth absolute Jerke, pretty sure he had the Morse secondmosetackles or somming Merse tack. I don't even know I don't know whostouts, Ididn't do them, but like he is red to be honest with the safeties in general,I don't know why they were so low. Like Jamaladas his thirties, minkafitzPatrick, was forties. I think all of...

...them should be a little bit high, butthat's just that's just me, I'm all right! So defenseiveends. My man ismiles Garett. The controversial man who got in a little bit of a scaffold Um, so the issue with Myles Gard is: Heonly played ten games because of that suspension, so that right there is areason to not have him too high, but the people who are above him inparticular Jj Watt, calad Campbell as well only one spot upso miles. Garretts Eidioth Calay Campbell, is seventy Nineh, J, J,whatis, forty fifth and Gedebion clanyis forty first and then in terms of the statistics umin a average per game miles, Garret averages the most tuckles for a lossout of those four bymbol than double the next best. He averages the mostsacks by more than double to the next best, and then he is second in falsefumbles Um sor. I just don't really know whatthe l, what the old logicthere is. It wouldn't surprise me if he was GE came in in about fortieth and tthey were like N, that's a bad book for us. He got sustended, let's bump himdown, ocomout it, but I guess the ten game thing has to be facted in becausealthough these averages are nice and stuff, you can't be the best player inthe season if you only play half of it but um to me. But the thing is j j Waltplayed eight Games M Jodamien claey played thirteen games, so those werethe kind of things that annoyed me most about this selection, but yet the J Jwat thing in particular four sacks in eight games, four takles for a loss ofone folrse fumble. I don't know how that's got you in the top. Fifty Oright, I don't and the thing with him,althoughhs being great in the past with injuries. I don't think he's been goodfor three years, so I don't know how he's still clinging on to a T. fiftyspot like people who um dominated the twenty eighteen season, you kind ofmaybe understand why they don't want to kick them off the list completely yet,but Jj Wel. I don't know how he's doing that an then SD ebuon clanny. He playsa little bit of a different position to the rest of them, he's bit more of aline, backe Um, so he had like pretty sure, had a few inceptions and a fewlike knockdowns and stuff like that, but yeah, just in turns of the statsfor a defensive, and I think males Garts, pretty pretty stiff to be putbelow clag ca at and even Genebrian clanny Um. So yeah, that's that's mymain men EA, a back that call as well Myles DA weapon yeah. When you watchCleveland like everything, every rush ays, it's kind of like S- I don't knowhow to explain it. But when you watch NFL, you Novn't really notice thedefensive line. Unless the commentators pointed out B'cause you're, justwatching the quarterback Um, but yeah mles Garret someone, you can't reallynot notice h. As we saying Loxedari Smith, you can't go a game withoutwithout seeing him. U cause absolute carnage, YEA, that's probably it forthe top hundred. I can talk for days about it, there's a lot of guys thathave been robbed or over hyped M, but yeah. I don't want to be too negativeon it, because I know it's a players vote, so there's obiously going to beflors in there's noe, statistical logic to it or anything like that. But youknow it Sustd a bet frustrating when these players aren't getting the creditthey deserve or getting too much credit but yeah. I just wanted to touch onthat in an episode, because I really enjoyd the concept of the top onehundred. I don't really write the executional, but but so that moves? U, unless do you haveanything else to know it on the top hundred or join a roll into Thiwelonroll onto fancy right? So we've got three topics today: We've gotpeople with the highest laws so meaning then there the safest, picks. Basicallyso w. We did our running back our top fifteen running back the other week. Ifyou haven't watched that episode go, give a watch or listen. So these those fifteen have beenexcluded from this chap now we're looking at who is the safest of therest, so they have the highest foor who has the highest ceiling, so they havethe highest upside, could average the most and then who should you avoid Umcompletely so ow? Can we stop it the floor, Yep in terms of the floor? So this is abit tough because there's obviously a group sitting outside that twelvfifteen that are pretty handy and then there's Um. You know pods the rank likesixty that you coul go with, but I'll kick us off in terms of the floor.I think we might both have this Sky Lenon Fornet, I think he's one of the safe. I thinkhe is the safest pick outside that top fifteen. I think you know exactly whatyou're going to get from him. In the last three years he's been in the topfifteen every single year, so probably arguably stiff to be snumbed outsideout top fifteen. Let's actually look who dogged him a nes me. I had him downat eighteen fi. She had him at Fiftye,...

...so we had him just on the castbasically Um, so he came nint last year, twelve to Twentyad, eighteen seent, Othusand and seventeen and th n the seond off of last year. Hi was fifteen,but yeah really solid, always going to give you whate a hundred rushing yardsUm, as you like to say, he's, probably going to give you twenty twenty five: atenths, a game m touchdown. If you're lucky, that's, probably the onevariable that he would like to accomplish a bit more this year. Idon't think he scored too many last year in a pretty average JAKIVILLE team,but yeah just with those pure rushing yards, and even a few receptions inPpar league he's likely just going to be pumping at sixteen and seventeenseighteen to every single game and itill be pretty hard to find a Lin Lononforenet game where he schols, you know below twelve or something d, so heis avery safe pick, a nice little starte ou o in a largeleague wire Oken, ten men,twelve man he's a pretty pretty safe guard. Hav have on your field. Anyoneelse you want to mention for this o were you going to talk aboutfolnat aswell yeah I had. I had forn it written down exactly. As you said, you wantblaks that are Goinna lock in two hundred and fifty three hundredattempts in the SASON and then any any extra touchstownds or reseaving work isjust a bonus which, which you'll take but definitely saflor beer, anothername I'll. Throw out who's in a similar situation. Is David, Montgomery fromChicago he's. The only he's going to take allthe carries in ther in their backfield and the Beas offence could not be anyworse than it was last season if they tried like that, was that was rockbottom for their offence, so thin he haveraged, twelve or so points be game.I think fairtan will be his absolute minimum. This season, which you'RlGetthim into that top twenty at least top twenty five running back range butyea, as you said before nit he'll, be a lock for a certain many yards each game so at a safe pick and wouldn't mind himas my running back three or four, if I'm lucky in in a largr leg, yeah he'she's a tough one, similar to fornet. If you're not looking for a starter, it'salmost not even a purpose. Picking him unless you just want to play it, saforbuys, I guess, because realistically it would be pretty weird for him to comeout and be like a top fifteen running back. He was up thirty. Second. Lastyear, um he's offence, as you said, they're probably going to improve alittle bit, but I don't think they're Gong to get too much better tha ourlines improved a tiny bit, but that's about it. He does have easy fixtures. He has thefift easiest fixtures in the League Um, but yeah. I don't see him bursting onto the scene. It is hissecond year in the League. So who knows natural progression? He might come outbeing really good Te. She I know he struggled with yards but carry lastyear Um, but yeah he's very safe as well. Another guy I want to mention isDevon's singletary. I've actually got him in both categories, to be honest,but he's now the Spoli Clea B, one of m the buffalo bills, who are going to bea playoff team, if not a superbowl contender. So right, there you've got pointsthey're, not going to be a point scoring machine, but they're gonnascore enough points to win games. So that's that's touchdown's right there,for you so frank all has gone. Who did a lot ofthe dirty works? So you think singlitary is going to do that h. Hewas a pretty prolific past catcher last year as well m. So all that combined, Ihe was twenty fourth and the second half of last year. I don't really seehow he goes backwards. Now that he's the primary runner, I think, goactually had justmale cars than him last year, game Um yeah he did so. Ican't see how he's going to get worse and in saying that I do also think he hasquite a high ceiling if he was twenty fourth last year. An now is the arb onein a team hat's going to improve on offence. I don't really see. What'sstopping him from you know, pushing that top fifteen top ten M itwould be ahuge step for him. It's also h s second year, so you've got to look at naturalprogression. I think he was a fairly hard drafgtbick Um, so yeah I thinksinutaryis a great pickup fit in small Leagus for Yau Bench, but in bigleagues as an Arby too. If you can get him there, I think he'll do really wellI'm fairly safe and also is a little bit oupside Um y. do you have anyoneelse with the high floor that you want to mention Um yeah, but I'll save it for my 'causehe's also wyoe Pinyagh single tery ill writ Tup,picers wealhopefully, I'm not saying yours, but the final floorman I've gotis Leve Bell M just once again, just because he's anout and out, I Bei. Don't even know who...

...their Arbi too is, if I'm honest, UM,frank, Al Theyre, actually, Sin Frank Ol, so who knows he could take a fewcarries away from him, but love Bell. He was second and Twentad. Seventeenwot the steel, so he's got a good pedigree. Last year he was nineteenthvery consistent Oll year. Don't think he pumped out any big scores M averagedfourteen and yeah. I just don't really see worldwhere it gets worse. I can't think of any reasons why maybe Gor takes one ortwo carries, but even then he's still just outside that top twenty. If Sir,but um I've heard a lot of people saying thathe was pretty poor last year in terms of he actual skills, so if he bouncesback to his better shape, he did sit out twenty eighteen, so it could havebeen a bit of rust, especially early Um. So if he comes out a little bit better,the jets offfences a little bit improved with Donald Um, you know beingthere for the whole year last year, missed like five weeks or something sothey should be looking to improve. As team is a whole, to be honest, I don'tthink he has upside at all to be honest, but I think he could be around thatfifteen to twenty mark. I'm pretty confident he will be around that markto be honest, but yeah O e. Once again, probably oneof those guys if you've got your starters, I probably wouldn't evenbother picking Im. U But yeah. I think he will be prettypretty handy now onto a man. That's a jeel floor and cealing contender. Yeahi'Vei've got him in th indecalincategory about tod gir, ver, talkde, O Daas, ga Um. Ithought he was a bit stiff to miss o out on the top. If Day, an him and Fornet werepretty stiff. I tink Curtis doged girl in his rankings, but im yeah justpassed on the fact that he's moving hes moving teams into a very good offence. I think at theFalcons he'll be he's there. Only decent running back he'll get all thework and, as we saw two two to three years ago, both of his years here wasthe number one running back in the leg in fantasy. So I mean if he, if he getsback to those numbers, then you've got yourself in a late runningback. So I think Arcan people are sleeping on him a lot or I can I'll bepicking him up in quite a few drauts yeah. He would be a pretty pretty tasty arby too, if youcould manage just nag like a Jonathan Taylor or something on the bench O. I Ireally like the idea of a safe, secure based at rb one and then a couple rissto join in. I think that's a pretty good Combo Mbe Yag Tog girly's right upthere for me in Siley I's my second dude. I've got writden down here. Asyou said absolute styr two years ago, and last year he looked like he wasplaying through injury, even though, as you liked to say that he was like thethird highest ad third high snafp Camp Ano, any raams, elfencs pie orsomething and oout of harm, say yeah out of every running back in the NFL Hewas. I still do reckon he was kind ofplaying hurt, but who knows but yeah, I think, moving teams. He wasin a very stale offence at the Rams Um, so I think Atlanta will be a good movie for him. Iwas about to say Outolante and I was like N: Is it ones Italian, SOCC, tame,Onsa City in the United States? Fercato atwenty second item at Seventeen Y ot a at fourteen, but a hundred and centdegree there's a lot of risk involved, but I think he has so why? Why do youthink he has a Hort floow, just begase the Arby wanted of fairly good taylikehe'll get he'll get the carrys like, I don't even know: 'cause they've, devont,O Framon's gone, so he's he's pretty safe les eget EEN,Yeah Yeah Yeah back yourself there. I write thatUm, but yeah. A hundred cent agree with that and they also traded their tied inUm, who ae usually good td targets, so he might be Shnang if she more tedes they might look to run it in a littlebit more then than pass Um the other guy. I've got like ten peoplehere, Um someone else with a Hugewa. Who else do you have asa hight ceiling to say their names 'cause? I don't want to Steal Yours,because I've got like ten pool Girere's. My my mom. I've got another nineanother couple of Nimes who are just athe ralocks yeah he's one Telo Ye r a so I've gotsigetarian here. As I mentioned someone else, R I've got a couple of teamsactually, who I don't think draft T, don't dropp them, but just wait for thewave is Irecan, especially in the small leave the Tampa running backs in theMiami running backs. I think...

...more so in the big leagues, but I thinklike in the twelve manners and stuff like that, but I think there could bequite a lot oupside to both of those running back goops, but I just want tosee the dynamic co at first, so Miami have Jordan howd in that breeder MJordan, Howard last year, came about thirtieth UMAS, the second running backout, O Philadelphia and n. That breeder was the SanFrancisco third running back in that Weird Little Committee Group, Bat. Hedid pretty well when he got to his chance. So I I'd like to see how theygo and just Miami's at hold, because if Myamin come out and starts, goring Aone point say: could both be prospects Um, they probably both countto each otherout. So if one takes like seventy percent of the runs, that would bepreferred. FANCIE towell see Aman entampar you're, looking at RonaldJones as Yo, the main guy probably wait and see how many snaps litl the Sharmccoi takes off him. But if Ronald Jones is having more than half of them,I reckon he could be a pretty nice bench option they're going to scorequite a lot of touchdand you'd. Imagine and there everyone in the league likes to run inthose. You know two Yadas, so I think Ronald Jones hecame thirty fifth lastyear and now they're probably going to bewell. I don't know if they're going Tao be improved in terms of point Schor,but there'll be a more efficient offence, so he mark get a few more runsand stuff. Th Wait Ang see because teshore McCoy might take a lot of theruns and then they've got cacial and Vougn who they drafted in the fourthround. I think so just sit and wait for those two teens, but I think they havepretty high ceilings, but yeah Jona tell us about Jonathan Taylor. Yea GoodCause There Yeah Tira has insane upside. Basically, if you're getting him isyour running back for s where, whereby you don't you, don't actually have tostart him at the start of the year and then say four weeks in he takes overtheir backfield. You've got yourself a genuine top ten prospect. There 'cause.As we know, the colts have an insanely good, o'line and he's just an absoluteweapon, as we saw in college and can catch the ball as well. Obviously, the Dan side is that mileand Mac takes the Carris mileand Mac, your man bules dame in nfl or it takesis fortailor to have like one big run in a game and then the culp woull just belot yet he's our man get him in and he'll just he'll take over thebackfield and we'll probably say male an MAC end up at the at some some Meth tame halfway throughthe year Behesyeah, no in upso back that an arm yeah. A hundred cent agree. Hewas my main man for this topic. As soon as I wrote it down, I was like JohnthonTail Ali Topsir everything. You said a hundred percent degree yeah, who else Yo yeah I was Gonn. I wasgoing to add another one who I'm not going near this black, just 'cause th.We saw the downside last season, but David Johnson, if he, if he can, if he can get back tohis form two years, Yo on a new one, heavily o wait, wait and see, though Yte thingis Yo. Can't you can't write and say 'cause who he's been drafted in,like the top? Twenty five so yeah, I don't know if id I'm not going nearthat man caus I'dather, take a risk on a rookie ID raver Jonathan Tyler, O he'sactually M in my void category David Johnson, just it's pbly the Mostonexlike it's, probably the most unpredictable person and all fannsfantasy this year, Lihe could be top ten. He could be fiftieth, like Ihave,no idea M. I've got no logic to put towards it and also someone else interms of David Johnson. You should probably, if you're, going TA, wait andsee with David Johnson. You should also wait and see whath you Johnson, becauseall of Theon, if, if they don't write David Johnson Jub Johnson, could bedoing the catching like he was doing last year and taking half the runs wallof a sudden, he could be a viable benchoption in bigger leagues, other people, I've gotten this list.I've got quite a few to be honest, but I think RHIMMOSI LOEA. I think he is avery juicy benchoption if he he started to take more snaps. As the Games wenton last year, I think in the last month he was you know, taking seventy percentM, but once again big risk involved, because Tevin Comancould go back to like the obby one easily and Admarsis Conna ust stuckthere just even with what he's doing. He'll stillprobably do well with his limited snops, but just physically can't do that. Wellwithout little snaps melvirn Gordon's. Also, someone he's been a top tenfinisher in fantasy in twentyd eighteen...

...nd, twenty seventeen and last year inthe back Offr last year he was seventh Um, so he's now moving to a new systemUm. So it's another one wher you! We don't really know you will have to pickhim up in the draft. I don't think you'll be able to get mel an golden onthe wavers, but I yeah it's going to be weird with the whole Linsay GordonDynamic, but he was with Echolo last year, who's, probably a better runningback than Filldlinsy, so we'll see how he goes, he could ha be upside and then two morguys. This is in big leagues this. This is why, as Yo, how many running backswould be picked up. They used o very long ods, but DJ TJ Yelden, the secondrunning back from Buffalo. He was the twenty third running back in Twsenta,eighteen and now he's been lifted from aby three to Arbytoo. So I don't knowwhat his role's going to be, but if he takes, you know a frank or type role ora role. So when he came twenty thirty, he was aby two to fornet. So if Heis Arbyto he could maybe dosomething similar. So he could be someone to look at and you wouldn'tneed a draft hin. You could get hem off the wavers Um and then, in terms of avoid M. I've gotDavid Johnson. As I mentioned anyone you want to mention here Yaas. We said Davi Johnson, but my man,one for this one who you definitely won't agree with, but it's Mark Ingrim,just based on the fact that he's he's thirty one years old coming into thisseason, he's got more competition Um. He was. He had like twenty catches onthe SASON and a quarter of them were touchdowns, which is just outoutrageous, he's not going to be He's, not rearing FA touchdownds through theair off twenty catches. Again Pe for me, everything just everything justpointsfor a drop off for me and based on where it's being picked up in that lifttoptwenty twenty od range. I just migt be going near that, obviously, if he falls down to luck, ifno one goes near and then obviously pick him up right, Oun, I agree with you partially.I didn't think you avoid him, though I think, as you said, you just don't pickhim up with the A DP. Lik suggest ye that is th Bak fring appise, witheveron like even divid Johnson O gets Tillmea Ho and pick a posture. Well, its event, Avigyour League is in like a six man league. You probablywouldn't get to that point, but yeah h the thing with morking room. Hefinished tent last year. So, even if he drops off, it's Goit to be a pretty bigdrop off to like yecoompletely stay clear of, but I agree with you that youshould be weary and probably not think im as a Starte, but definitely he is agood benchoption, though, because in such a high scoring team Um, if nothing,if we get shocked and nothing changes, jk Dobbinst, you know shes stats withthe other dudes all of a sudden. He can be a totfiftenguy again in a great team scoring a lot O touch be hundred percent agree withyou. There just sit and waite with that one UM. Now I've got to some New Englandwritten down here. I am steering clear of every single running back that Ihave new. England is sorry I'mpredictable, Toshe M. it's almost tothe point where you anvoid Cam, just who knows what's goingto happen, butlike he's too good to that. But the thing with the running backs they'renot too good to do that for Um James White Um, sonnie Michelle and theysigned last night Lamar Mila, who might not mean much to many people, but intwent and fifteen sixteen seventeen he was in the top twenty for Russian yardsand he's unfortunately done two acils in a row. So who knows he could comeback best form and all of a sudden they've got three running back: SharingUm they've got three running backs and arerunning quarterback and all of a sudden who knows what's going on there, so IDste clear of every one of the Soni Michelle is horrifically overrated,James, whit, he's safe because he gets a lot of peep a points but yeah, justwith camn being a running, quarterback iwould be very um wary of those gays um anyone else d you want to mention Um.Well, we said we talked aboutram most his in a similar bow with ingrim. Theyboth have upside but personally I'll, be avoiding them. Ju 'cause, there's Artoo much risk there like wost coast. For most it, it hee es, not even themain guy, which is definitely a viable thing that could happen idnoyvote outbtyeah Ye's, true, but the bar for them. I don't think thet complait AVOIC aswhe w keep saying it's just a hundred percent relative to the situation. Ithink they're, both pretty handy bench opsons but yet, and then also ort,avoid. I said this for the quarterbacks just rookies in general,...

...not completely avoid as we kapmentioning, but just be really careful. I wouldn't get carried away and goingand pick Jonaan Taylor from the top ten like you don't need to do that Um. I don't need to do that, because atherpeople are going to be too scared to do that. But be you actually don't knowwhat the situation's going to be for them. 'cause this whole coed, thing's,probably not going to suit rookies. To be honest, they were saying this. I waslistening to the radio the other day and they were like saying it's Goinna,be very tough for Joe Borrou to like learn the playbook, and the sameapplies for every rookie um they're not going to have many snaps inPresas and they're going to have limited practice, so they're, probablygoing to lean towards the more experienced guys early, so iould justbe clad's, probably the only one where I'd be interested in taking a brisk,but the other guys. I would not pick up any of them. Astartas acres, JohnathanTayle, is by far the best option out of authon but acrs. I don't even know if I'd pick him up onthe bench. Just 'cause, the Los Angeles rams running back things so messy. Whoelse are we dealing with ondre swift, probably wouldn't get he's actuallykind of a spoicy bench pick up his ioud still be a little bit careful of him.Aj Dilin, just another guy, don't be too bolish on him. Jaka Dobbins, another guy, so y, prettymuch ist Annie Rooki just be very careful Um and don't get cording to the hife. I know a lot ofguys. You know they see the draut they're like Oo. This is spicy. Let'sget him in the first couple rounds of fantasy e. You don't need to Jo Itber,you shouldn't do it so yeah yeah spot? U e!! THAT'S PRETTY MUCH!All I'vegt is t anyone who we haven't talked James Connell Eah. So this is, Imade a little list of the people we voted. So when you guys sent me in your toptwenty fives there's like a second tier of people who got votadben on the topfifteen. I think James Corner is the own James, conner and cram hunt e. Theonly guars wo haven't talked about. I Kron has whatae your thought on them.gramhunt obviously has massive upsoad, but the Chan does either its LitaIrelis on basically chob getting injured, which is about a one percentchance. So you can't really. I guess they've got AV BET OI line, but yeah Erak if cob gets injured, hunt is Lukriht into a top Y rain. Ruing back 'cause he's Shebasically chobs rollwith pass catching yeah and en corner M I'll make queen also take him in thefirst Rom, but di do Queen Idi it last year and regrettid at Feeli that regretted itever since atost is it bater not best Oline in the league offence should willimprove with big ban. Is it tempting it all to you ma. Well was S we probablyshould have mentioned him in the upside category, but nobecause yeah ele betterthan last. If he gets the snaps, then heill be good, but t not sure if hewill just cause. I don't rite him as like we're talking. They. They pickedup a rookie running back in the draft. I think they still have jail and Sam daand Samuel say those gies could easily if Conna doesn't perform, they couldjust take hiss, take his row and he just become ye similar similar to carryon M. Unfortunately, when Ho got injured and male mack, actually whenthey got injured, the other guy showed stuff um I kno jail. SAIS was prettybay good when he pliyed Benny Snell th. The third guy was actually allright.There might be like a Tra Edmons in there as well th. They were prettyhandy and then Um. Similarly, for Detroit all testing the name, knowledgenow, but tard got onside yeah. He was pretty good and like BarScarborough, I think Odya, J, Chdamkizidaikion, athe other one yeahand then wt Indianapolis. I don't know on like nihem hinds or something theyall did aright when they played, because I was in a pretty big league insomething else, and I used to pick up those guys off the wave s once theirmen got injured so yeah, I think, unfortunately, for corn, I think he'lllose snaps, Um and yeah. It's probably not the bestpeak, there's a lot of other, better guys out there who have better ceilingsand even better flors, so probably ye te clear there. Ob should have put himin the avoid. Actually, then I had corner like twenty three or somethinglike that, I'm pretty sure cared. This was carrying the white for Aconorankings. Let Me Chee Um yeah. He was. He had himat fifteen yea him, a twenty four Ot. Twenty two...

...so yeah to be on eside Ma t at thetainso probably should be getting arondom.It's true. It is true. You say I just don't think you'll fall off that much but yeah. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH! All we've got foryou today, Um next up, we've got the WIG fiftieth,I'm slowly, herding you no in the videods Um, so yeah join us I' Don'Wan to talkabout it too much 'cause, it's a little bit of surprise, but very excited forvery proud of us, forgetting to fifty we'll talk about it in t e inobviouslyI'll get around you and stuff on the enjor of the F debasard, but um thanks asalways for joining me mate. No ise Mi been a pleasure as her wifeyeah. LOOKING FORWARD TO N. F L fancy it's just slowly. As you keep sayingit's creeping in, I think it's almost a month t to the day that the seasonstarts. I don't offer to the twelfth or the fourteenth actually Um, but yeahgetting really excited now so close, I can almost feel it justpraying that Um. You know the whole coveman situation eases over there, ait doesn't get canceled, but I can't lie it's not looking too great rightnow, 'm every day, there's like a few guys who either opped out or upput onthe coverd list, so yeah. That's all we've got few today, thanks forlistening.
