Welcome back to be on the ball podcastand other episode of the best potty going around and look. I can't lieabsolutely pammed up put for all the potises always but this one's a littlebit extra special today we're joined by a special guest, we'll save hisintroduction for last, but pil welcome back mate Rael the poddy back foranother NFL chat this week. But how are you gone? Thank you mate and going well good tohear. Go to you it's a good day today, so I think reckon spirits will be high,but the special guest today curtis how you mean Gromet, so I was be on it. I'm actuallykeyed for it to be fair. Yeah we've got a stacked episode. Lined up have in onCurtis on for age is kind of even recalled the last one it's probablylike halfway through last NFL season, I reckon is probably since I probably no,nor so pretty tell y that he's here, butyes, we're bringing back some of the old favorite segments. This season,first of all, will be doing winners and losers, so we'll be taking a look backat week. One and then we will be chained about fantasy and then will be previewing week to that sort of justthe general jest, but as we go through the segment, you'll sort of understandwhat's happening, but first of all winners, boys or bought it all broughtabout two to three to the table. I'll, let Curtis have a crack first, since heis a special guest of the show who were your biggest winnings of the week. Man First on I start off is Cleveland. Ithought their performance against Kansas City was really impressive andto be fair, if I probably didn't I can like, I won't say they slacked off inthat second half my home kind of turned it on the second math, but they had afew few airs in the second half that you wouldn't usually expect like like a fumble from cub butotherwise yeah. I thought that performance is extremely impressive,that really innovative in terms that play calls, especially in that firsthalf so yeah. I think that serious seriousdirect this year in the I see the second one I had was thecharges against the Washington. It wasn't a big win and obviously fitgot injured early, but I thought it was a really important win for them. Lastyear they had five games that they lost by underfive points, so for them to get a close win. Her was extremely important andkind of sets of precedence for the rest of the season to our win. Those closegames, which would have otherwise got them into the playoffs last year andfinal when I had was the raiders beaten against both they usually losethose clash game, especially over the last few years. So the fact that theygot up in Ot is a big win for them, and yeah makes them on my winners list forthe week yeah hundred seven Gree, I reckon the child thing might have had a like.The coaching change might have played a part, because we know that Anthony Linshirked a few games last year. So E H, he it's a sign of things to comefor the charges but yeah the raiders, getting as aweird one. People sounding this like game of the year, but at the same timeI was like kind of Shit game. I don't know it was a weird one pilch. What dyou? Who are your wines? There brought two to the table mate? Firstly,Arizona did not expect this at all expected tento win this game and canals came out bloom out of the wardup. Oh look, elated look delite, so huge win. Is there and my other man was the rams stuff and just looked elate for them,and I reckon for me there probably my number three sed behind temper andchiefs yeah. They looked so good and like thatbears defense is nothing to scoff out and Stafford was cutting them apart andthen Hendo just took took over in the second half and started rounding itdown their throat. So yeah that was pretty impressive, but yeah Arizona looked sick. Ipredicted on the predictions last week I predicted Tennessee to regress alittle bit so not early days, but I was happy to see that one I know I made. We know, thanks forQuinoa shouts, were great but yeah Quin, os O mate Centro, multi Sunday, nine.That was one of the legs and think we all toddle them to not send it in,maybe not purely because of that. Worse Multi Hope Yeah. He had about for thoselistening out about four legs. Three of them were like fifty fifty sixty fortyat best so yeah it was a bit of a cook...

...or, but he probably wanted to value. Iguess my winners. I've actually bought threecompletely different wines, so we're pretty much covering all the teams inthe NFL but brought the saints forward. I thinkthere went over the package was our rages. I don't think that differently.If the pack is coming out of it. I think more highly of the same, so Ithink last week I said, thou mis might justget the last while cardle miss the playoffs. I can't remember I had themaround like nine or ten winds, but I think Sean Payton showed that, like his genuinely has a like, you could say hisbest coach in the League and I don't think many could really debate it. Likehe's sort of flexed his muscles there, some of the things the commentators arereeling off out of the eight blokes who caught passes for them. Three of themwere drafted, the other five for I'm drafted, so yeah just shows whatshampain can do with a bunch of logs who are overlooked by other teams, andI just thought the defense. I know that it's been pretty elite for quite awhile now, but holding the packers one of the best offenses to three points ispretty unheard of so yeah. I can huge win for the saying ason in all aspects really, and then I thought the broncos played really wellaway from home. Holding the giants to thirteen points. Isn't that big of asurprise because they have a good defense. But to me I was most shockedby their offense to score twenty seven points. I thought that was pretty impressive:their receiving call looked pretty sick. I know Jerry Judy went down injured,sadly for Cotas who had been fantasy, but yes, six blokes had three or morecatches and out of those six four have been in the League for less than threeseasons. So the lacks of D K, J Ham, La and they're two tight ends so prettyexciting times that the broncos obviously got a rookie running back aswell. So if teddy can just do a good enough job give seven out of tens everyweek or I can, there could be a dangerous team that will beat a lot ofgood teams this year and also Vomela and his first game back from injury hadtwo sacks and three tackles for a loss, so he looks like he hasn't Mr beat andthen the Texans final shout out. I said they'll win one game last year and I'mstill not ruling that prospect out, because the jags did exactly this lastseason. They won their first game of the year and then lost the next fifteen,but the offense to score thirty sevenpoints. I was pretty impressed with that: Brandon Cooks, like he's agenuine top receiver tyro, tailors just a bit of a cheatcode really with his agility, and I think they're running back roof of pilllindsay marking, room and Dave. Johnsons got O P like this sort ofthree blakes who have been cast aside, but when you put all three of themtogether, they're not bad at all. In Room had like twenty three carries orsomething lincy a touch down David Johnson Hall. I think three couches, sothem all in ten and could be a bit lethal into the losers. Though we'll swing itback to Kurt Mat. who were the people that came out of this weekend?Unfavorably I've got three. First one has to be the Atlanta Elkins. Let us got thumped andto be fair, they did look good on the first couple drives, but on that matterI look to pay people pretty poorly pitched in live up to the height and yeah really didn't have a stand outgame, especially on fantasy. Second, one had to be the tirents. Obviously, they got again thumped bythe cardinals and was super impressive from the canals arms are got to give it to them,and last one got to be the packers. They also gotthumped to be fear. That was extremely surprising. What was most concerningthere, I think, was the inability to even get any offense gone. It wasn'teven a concern in regards that defense withthe fact that a road Jones and Adams couldn't reallyeven get anything going. I think they'll limit to do like three pointsof a Hatin, so I was pretty stiff game for them and a bit of a concern, but Iwould tip them to be out backout, especially the last two, the times inthe pack es to really bance back they're, both pretty stacked on offense,so yeah. Those are the three yeah. The common taters was sort of whipping outall the excuses in the book for the packers, like they played shit, there'sno way around it, but I do think some of the excuses have felt like.Apparently, none of these starting offense played a snap in the preseasonand apparently where they were playing. It was like thirty five degrees Celsiusso and Green Bay is like a freezing place, so that was some of the excusesthat we open. Now I could be fair, could be shipped yet sure they bounceback against the lines and get the job done. Picshur all loses men, the entire and FC North Whole Division got rinsed by in...

...as true actually for into division.Rivals Gran Bay got rinsed, debt got rinsed,she got rinshed and a soot all got rised, so big loser there andalso gonna have ter, say Baltimore, because just I expected them to comeout, as I said to you, boys and I the raiders, and they end upgetting ripped and there o looked honestly no better than it did lastseason, which was quite surprising to me so yeah yeah, sorry, I've just remembered cutyou're rinsing of Carl Pit Puckett. Doesn't it is like four catches ondebuts, a Titan Lad's, not even bad. I know it's kick when you drive him inthe third round. In your fantasy leave mate, you need em to be pocus bit morethan that. Yeah t will drive things by Atlanta as well a re going to say byPonto Jimmy but well, and an port star, Jimmy yeah, but yeah yeah. I don'tthink I don't know tie that's too high, but I know like Hockin stuff wentpretty high and they're decent, but yeah, but I think that don't think thatwas their need, though yeah that's actually very true, yeah.It's not strange strange forty. Actually now I think about it, you'reright but yeah I had the falcons I just like. We knew they re going to be Shitbut losing to a team that I've predicted to win six games by twentysix points is pretty frightening, like what's going to happen when they, forexample, play the bucks this week, Washington bit harsh because they were playinggood team in the charges, but just the injury to fits Patrick. I don't know if I had them in theplayoffs. I was had them there or there abouts, but I think add them around tenwinds, but I think this injury de fits could be out up to two months. I thinkit has a real big impact on them. Like I know this Taylor Hi Nicki bloke led them to a win. I think last yearand one of me starts but yeah big risk could be anything reallycould be absolutely dog shit, so yeah I've just got a lot less belief in themnow I know the defense is still really good and they've still got some decentweapons and stuff like that. But for this offense to score more thanlike twenty points a week, I think it will be pretty hard. This quarterbackfor the next couple months, I'll be tough for them to win games and then,finally, as pill shut, I've got the ravens just reckon. I know it's onlyround one, but I just think in a tight division like the AFC north. I thinkloss is like this can end up being pretty costly. I had them pippingPittsburgh and also, in fact, pipping them for a while card spot. So a losslike this, could you know sort of flip that the other way around and also Ijust didn't think from the Ibal test. As they say, I didn't think, as Pilchsaid, I didn't think they look good on either side of the ball. I know they'vegot a lot of injuries and, for example, like Jimmy Smith, didn't play. I thinkyou might play next week, but yeah that defense looks a lot less scary at themover and yeah a pill to mention the offense didn't improve like we weresort of expecting before we get into Curtis's playoff bracket predictionsMenel pilch to dals last week, so we thought we'd hit curtises this week. Ijust wanted to say some things happen in week, one in two thousand and twenty,because there's some people coming out with some outrageous calls, whether itbe fantasy or non fantasy, and I think people would see the take step back sothe jags one in week, one last year went on to Tad fifteen games. Clevelandlost by thirty two went on to been the playoffs Tampa Bay. Last as well wenton to win the Super Bowl Mount Ryan through four hundred and fifty yardsand week. One so like Diddi really happen of the season. Minnesota werewithin a touchdown, a being the packers flitabout lad had a hundred and fortyRussian yards and the Patriots actually won a game so yeah just I know, we'vejust made some calls in that second before by. I think I run a seed to takeeverything with a grain of salt early. It's a somewhat long season and yeah.But if anyone wants to trade me Pachim home for James Winston, I will acceptit, but Yeah Curtis, a playoff predictioninterested to hear this one, because I think we all have different thoughts onhow the playoffs are going to look. But let it rip cut all right. I say a stuff got to bealways pretty self explanatory. If West a m PR self expance got the chief, Isay North I've got the browns again, as I said before, super impressed with howthey played against the chiefs, but I think they're genuine what chances heare. I know some miniseries of got the colts.I...

I'm not sure even what to think of that,that division, obviously cots had a loss of something I'm trying to tell ofso yet, not really too sure what to think of that division, then for the three wild cards, I've gotthe dolphins to Er. To me. Didn't like look unreal,but again court made a good point to me in the in the DMZ that are you know.The Patriots are a suppar Super Day, so got to just take that one with thegrain of salt. Then again, you did have some unreal throw so I still with highexpectations for them. stealers super impressive Nagy Harris. I thinkwe are on the yet better. Yes and then I've got the titen and I'mgoing to give a special mention to the charges. I think they actually might goright this year, new new coat coaching staff, so hopefully they win thoseclose games that they lost last year and they might get a little sneakychance into the playoffs because they are like to be fair,they're pretty stacked, especially in offense. So well, like Alan e Williams,who is super quick, was super hot draft peak quite a while ago. Now, though,and obviously they've got acla- and you know they really stuck herOrlon this year as well and now we'll get into the FC a nest, you guys haveany comments on that yeah. So do you have the Ravens missing out? I dothat's spisy all right now, though, all right it. I was black way too many injuries andhonestly, like those impressed at all like with the way they played like yeah.They did play Shit like Watkins looks. It looks all right,but, like he's not a true widersprechend like to just pace hishell and then obviously rellis is like their foresterario backand let my like, obviously as elate, but you know, there's nothing like youto see and I feel like people going to start working out how to stop that thatoffense, eventually so yeah, I don't really have the highest expectationsgone for them this year. Big Controversial but standard for me, ONF IFS got the the cowboys preset oractually yeah got the care boys about Washington, cooking them a run fortheir money and C West. Obviously got me forty. Nine is don't see how theydon't win that division, even though I piltra go say that the rams are Goin.We, but, let's be honest, like if Jimmy d play shit, that chuck and trait landsand trail entitate, tell tracking Jimmyjon the they're not losing thatdivision. I'm sorry made like that. To be honest, and if c North I've got thepackers but again bit of a bit of a stinker of a lostthis week, but I don't see how they don't be bounce back and an FC cfobviously got the back in the ES, who probably to be fair, the superbowlfavorites for this year and then for the three wild cards got the rams.Carnal and saints Saint O are Super Impressive. Winston super impressive black, just ultra surprise, they're going to getMichael Thomas back. So I got high expectations for thesaints to be fair, and I also want to give special mention to the to seahawks, which means that all for of the Nof c West teams could make it thatthat our division is beyond stacked. They all look super super impressive in the first week e, except for theforty nine is in that life second quarter and a half when the the linesmade it come back by, they probably switched off. So, let's be honest, so yeah, I think that TCAR, we couldactually see all fourteen from one division potentially make the playoffs,which would be beyond scary and like unreal and just like and heard of, sayyeah yeah, no Socias. I don't actually know if Russel Wilson's ever missed theplayoffs since he's been in the League, so I think Kool be predicting a firstthere, which is pretty saucy or cur thoughts on this take, I said last week,AFC south worst division of the of the year view back it or do you think nceis to sell bars. I I think they're too worst to be fair.Like a FCC, I do have white expectations for the colts to be fair,but you're not wrong. I tied in just look dog shit like absolute dog, Shitand Polio Jones got ripped by his coach,...

...so yeah I could be. I still think it'sthe FC East but- and I sin definitely getting better, like cowboys they'restacked on the offense that they've made their defense be better. They went hard hard core theD in The in the draft, so they got the likes of pass and early in the firstround me who's a good pick, and yet Washington obviously, isprobably Washington's really really good. They just probably cub away frombeing a proper solidified playoff team, which is annoying for them. But I meanit's a positive for the cowboys and the rest of that NC, east division, yeah,absolutely fair call. I think we had quite a lot different, all three of us,so it ud be interesting to see it could comes out on top all right, just somequick awards for the week before you into the fantasy section. I now piltpobby has blue balls before it, but I'll start us off. I think we mighthave all done it a little bit differently, but first of all, my offensive player.The Way Cup done, one for each conference, NF player of the week interms of the offense I've done matthew, Stafford, versing, a good defense inthe bears just reckon he put on a clique, also, maybe a little bit. Youknow of like a storyline thing to this award, but the way just strolled inthree three hundred and twenty yard. Three hundred and twenty one yards fromtwenty six or ten, three touchdowns no interceptions only sucked once thoughtit was a pretty spicy clinic and he could have kept going, but obviouslythey sort of put him in there put them in put them away in the last quarterand just let Hendo get the job done. I say yeah for me that was Stafford andthen AFC I've, given it to Tyre Kill versing a pretty good secondary inCleveland to have two hundred and one yards from scrimmage, I think, waspretty sensational first drive. He only had like one catch fall and while, asthat was sort of leaning on Kelsey a lot more and then he sort of just tookover from there had eleven catches for the game. One touch down yeah and for me, like the Cleveland,look like they're going to win in after the first quarter, but I think tyrehere was a real reason why the white kids has got over the line.Then I've given an offensive rookie of the war week award. I've got one son abit more rogue here, not one of the starting quarterback toone and the starting running backs or anything. I've doing it to AnthonySchwartz same game as Tariki playing for the BROWNS got a lot more stopsbecause of odel beckons injury. I just send background to WHO this blog ispick. Ninety one when he was sixteen years old. He ran ten fifteen hundredmeters personal best of ten o nine, so he's fricking rapid, like he wasactually a professional athlete before he went into American football, soborderline Olympic speed there based off the pro days because there was nocombine. He had a forty dash time of four twenty six, which was zero pointzero three faster than anyone else faster than henry rugs of last year,and that's actually the tide for Fasces of all time. So it's just pure speed, but yeah against the chief ten ispretty good. Three receptions for sixty nine yards, one rush for seventeenyards all his plays were in the opening half as well. When the game wasabsolutely neck and neck, they were just gone back and forth and heprovided a lot of game breaking plays that, as it just mentioned, were prettylarge chunks. So yeah look for him in Cleveland in the next couple. Games,odels- probably going to be back this week, so he's he's time on the field might decrease alittle bit, but he looks pretty exciting and then defensive player theyear of probably all both of the week. I keep saying you, but we're probablywere the same bloke at one of the old time best offensive individual forms isever Chandler Jones up against the titans destroyed pro ball, one thantaylow force, fumbles five sacks for tackles for a loss. So essentially,nine sucks, you could argue, didn't record a start in the fourth term andhe played seventy five percent, so he legit might have sat out the fourthquarter, I'm actually not sure but yeah, that's just a nasty game from ChanlerJones and I don't know the old. So I don't know if there is an odds market,but if there's a SAX leader odds market, you think you'd be about a dollaraiding now because having five after the first weeks, apretty decent head start from the great man pitch had to you mat. What have you gothere and F C? Sorry, I F C player of theweek. I've gone with Patmans, I'm just the best performing quarterback in the NFL.Probably this week got them over the...

...line led the come back against thebrowns and then n FC I've got calamary same deal, just rinsed Tennessee, fivetouchdowns, just a beast offensive rookie of the week hard to gopast my boy, Jamaas undred yards on debut ans, the tough mind they got upas well and including a fift touchdown. Did he touch in yeah. Fifty yards touchdown early in the game and then defensive player of the week,Chala Jones, which is the most obvious decision, asyou just mentioned, yeah, not even much of about yet chase,was my other guy and then I was like about Piltra do chase because he's inhis fantasy team. So I went with Schwarzman Dago Curtis. What if you gothere, I all right. I actually pay the week. I went car huge performance for a hundred andthirty five yards, thirty four or fifty six attempts completed at two Dutchdowns and probably could have been three, if not for the interception thatliterally just went through the receivers hands were talking anabsolute joke and talking the man is an underrated commodity is a weapon andhas just been on a dog shit team for his entire life. Best receivers ever had like car. So Isorry it's Coupar, so we're talking Mana on more respect and cooking needto give it to him, and if he pays a week got to be Wednesday and man hadfive for touchdowns. Talking did not did not have that turnover presence that he had at the box andyeah. I'm talking that his second game that he's looked super impressive,super effective super efficient. So I think there is abig season coming up for Winston, and I've said it before. I think he is adark horse for MV and yeah offensive play the week. I mean he probably wasn't a offensiveplay the week, but I'm just going to mention in a resis in my fantasy teamand be because just a super late return following what was it the season, AndreInjury and that man is that Prescott obviously came up against probably thebest day in the League in the box and yeah. He really pushed them to thelimit was throwing it everywhere and yeah. It's just looking early as usualand defense player of the week. Obviously, as you guys have said,Chanler Jones with this five sacks so yeah- that's mine, yeah- that Arizona defense is lookingpretty nasty. This year, like like, I reckon J j. What will take well now J J?What will be free, but I just think the name of J J, what like scares, O Lymanand I reckon gets a bit more attention and then Chanler Jones is free and thenget. But a Baker seem in there on a couple blitzes, it's all the Sun Prettyfrightening and Isa Simmons, who is sort of being slipped on this year. Ithink, but yes, Jamaas, feel like Franzes, respecting himrecently he's actually a freak like as people o mentioned towards the otherday. There was a reason why Jefferson was the number two behind him at Ls, so yeah for de by C from Jama, Ile pickingthem up in fantasy this week, but time for our fantasy section. So what we'regoing to do? Go in the four main positions,quarterback running back wide receiver and tighten we've all brought a couplerises and falls to the table and we're just going to explain why we thinkthey've risen or fallen in out rankings, but first of all get a quick rap up ofhow overruns weekend, when pilch manager of actually forgotten your name, and I doit might be not feasible. To say on the PODCAST,but pic how to jar then weekend going thanks for asking make always lovegloating about my fantasy team as usual top score the leg this weekwith one eighty on an tie team board out, including my bench. So it'slooking very good. I know at he I know I know a lot of the LA members,including yourself, dislike my team, because I chat Chit, but that's what you got to do in a loveit. So I just like a team. I, like your matter. I just like your manager. Well, a manager's league at so themanager is the team. I dislike your name mate. It's like Y namewe're, not...

...a it out d s yeah very, very happy with my team thisweek. Man that good great way from you in all allfairness, the number one so to win the premiership and given has been doingmock since about March- probably expected, but just take it. We are told Cork Sen. Youdid three mock drifts before before the draft and straight ned behavior was theresponse: Mate, Nerd, behavior, disco, apparently Cork Sans Bitter Inerthimself. These days so yeah, I have heard that, both by the way, itwasn't three mad eras about three hundred yeah but a oona. That's got him the numberone seed. So if they're play to win we'll go over to CORDIS Pons Tar Jimmy, how do I don't really want to talk about man? As you can say, I get a bit emotionalbad at all, but stiff we're talking. It's got me right,noight, on on projections for the Y, like t es an worse than Quin, it's aviolation, no but quinsacs skill Quinn up to second behind a Qui. Second,that's just Christ, the s, the S, somethin, a factor in manager, abilityand then quinas would be eight and care to be second yeah. But the strange Isee how how I'm no's like I've got. Child Got Acla to be fair or I can willbe my law school of BEA, because no one actually genuinely boldbut except for Nack yeah you'll be for back you'll. Be Fine, then don't don't yeah. It was a stupid loss to lose toprojection ten. That's the that. The concern, though, and I think I LUSOS bumped- I'm talking- I've tracked up hundredand twenty and each cracked up hundred and sixty, and I wanted to kill myself,but that's a hollow. Take that back cut that out. Just a big canceled boys and Yehoishould say what format we play. So we play a bit of a different one. Nodefense, no kickers! We have a super flex, so yeah, it's pretty a bit a lot morestraightforward. I prefer it anyway. I think it's a great job to thecommissioner who is in this very podcast Uber, yet fair play a curyou'll be right, mad there's, we've changed it from top for to top sixplayoffs, so you'll be sweet. You've just got to get. We just talk about howthe Lens rouped as well, because piles commissioner gave himself first peakgives himself that are only note, not true mate. The only veto power so he'sthe only one who can cancel trade they wane, something that is necessary.That's that was necessary did not give myself gasping how pain. I told him todo the video thing, though, because how painful would it be if, like six peoplehave to vote like it would take hours to get through a trade yeah? And then Ibe people can just do it on purpose. Yeah, it should be should be as threebecause we're always active on the fin in the fantasy world. Yeah Fair, butthat's like straight, but ill, often I'll, consult like the the more experienced members of theboard each time it trade comes through yeah. That's why I thought that was thegeneral understanding so good to hear that that is right, but yeah, but sothis podcast is in sixty hours, because we could just chat shit all day hereand we'll get into it. quarterbacks I'll start a soft boys. My forteaurises before into this section, just a quickmention that obviously fits as injury, huge impact. I had him very high. Ilove the fits of magic. Thankfully, wasn't allowed to pick him up basicallybecause the guy was asleep. Who has him so she had out to Pisa of collegefootball fame, Ficari. Obviously, a fuller, therefore high Nachi arise are,but let's be real, probably not that fantasy, relevant til. We see him andif he bawls out, but the guys I actually had Wilson very low in myrankings, like I'm sort of disgraced of how low I had him we're talking. Ithink I had him at twenty two and we only had like twenty attempts orsomething and he just still coop so yeah. I just think he'll throw thatmany touchdowns, I think he's just like a lock for top ten. I don't think hewill be elite, but just with yeah, as I mentioned his scoring ability, theydon't not going to run many touchdowns in so yeah. I Reckon Yeah Shit call forme jared govners and other riser, I'm sure most people would have him in therises. If I it was like, you know, five...

...people long, but you guys might nothave them, because we only can pick a couple, but things that I enjoyed fifty sevenattempts pretty nard pretty hard not to have bulk yarded. When you throw on atfifty seven times. He also had five red zone attempts. So suggesting that theyfavored the path instead of the run in the red zone, which is always ideal toa fantasy, quarterbacks credentials and Kibe follar. I had this bloke at number.Thirteen and Curtis won't like me saying this, but it's Carson went. Hehad three red zone attempts and their offense look pretty average. I thought looks like it's going to be a run first,offense great or line good running backs. So I think wence might just be alittle bit of a maybe a system qb this year when therun game doesn't work, they wheel them in or if the game script suit. So yeah,I don't know, I still think he has upside, but I don't know that worriedme. Only three red zone attempts but I'll pass it over to curtis to we orshe be rises and falls brother, okay, but short rise, and Winston Selfexplantory fall up pitch Patrick and self expand tree play on yeah. I foundthat quarterbacks hard. Actually, so I respect the quick nature of it. Pilchwho have you got brother, riser dalen hurts. I actually had himhigh from the start, but the man absolutely bored and actually lookedelate, throwing as well looks like Devon to Smith and Reda look good aswell, so I think he'll ball and for our wouldn't buy into it too much, but Iprobably drop in a couple of places and that is Aaron Rogers he's obviously going to bounce back.But I don't know there was just a lot of talk about him, not wanting to playat the packers and all that throughout the off season. So I'm just wonderingwhether the packers might kind of capitulate a bit this season, but Iguess we'll see it wouldn't be a jobbing ship. Just yet yeah topic that we talked about a lotlast year is rogers a sexy rooster, so pil sorts on his hair go think I thinkthe hair is Jugra like I think it's lower is ranking orating like a lot. Idon't know about you, but I don't think it's a good think. It's almost asdiscussing s pilcere it right now, but so it's a good good had inmate, but I Ican. I think it detracts from his dilloo a bit so yeah,therefore it loves is like. If you tell me, a rod had long hair I'd be like wasgone for like that cabin rugged. Sexy Dil look, but I don't think he pulledit off and he just looked like looks home old like so. It looks like someold bloke with like long hair weirdly like he's, got the great the graystrikes going through it as well. We just yet looks already homeless yeah,not not the play from a Rod, so maybe trim that up and they get back on thewinning board, because I think that was a big factor in the loss, but yeahpilch John Herds. How hard do you reckon he can be reckon legit as liketop five upside upside yeah yeah, I'm prettyhard in this? Well but Rhat? Don't you like about him care?What I just think that they played and Wanda and everyone's getting on theBabaria and we're going to come to the recollection that I lent it is theworst defense in the NFL and he's chucked up like what twenty sevenpoints or something like that against. I don't lean to de that has nothinggoing for it. I don't land a team that really has nothing going for it to befair because it's Matt Ryan Stinks. So I think everyone's gone. The barwagon everyone's had him and you just going to sit in that twelve to fifteenrange like he was expected to be yeah. I think I've got him around nine. Idon't think I'll be moving him up this week, but you know if he puts on a goodshow against the forty niners who are significantly better defense and theFalcon or maybe not they can seeded. Why O you touchdown to golf for days,but yeah we'll see how he goes, but I don't know I like her. It's love love abit of a jewel Thrick B. Winston Kurt. Are you going to be trading for himthis week? I was thinking about it to be fair. You know, if you, what you said: You're game rid of roomfor Crumbs Mat, so Jerry Judy right yeah. I shouldn't have said that LeGinter black fires, whenever you share any opinion, but it's boring if youdon't share a Junoit's in the IR...

...yeah, but we've got an er spot though so wedo, I could be a usual begun. The issue is, I have two two is in the first week:it's almost like another, that's it most of it. I ve done for the confirmedin this this morning I podcast yesterday and they're like Oh. Theyprobably just rested him because it was Detroit. Now is on he yeah's a ChitCollege in his knee. So we all know who the way o the number one is now boys.I've already put it. Don't you worry about that mate they? This is it'sactually a bad week to do. Well, like I think, I'm number eight in the waves, II mabon yeah, I didn't even bother putting in just thinking, am willforget to be honest. Yeah I don't know well, you've already determined. Don'tyou be a a, but he didn't even tell you didn't evenhave it yeah that can didn't play. Shanahan said his wasn't in the topthree running backs yeah, but he he had a way now he'll get. He was a got. Acouple O carries. Yeah is whether he's fantasy relevance. Yeah I've gonestraight for Mitchell, but like if you're watching this, if you gofor it mate we're going to have some issues. So what are you you know? Idon't I felt that he's not going for him as he doesn't check his team yeah. I'm three. I believe I think thetwo ahead of me are quincy and lock us not as we done. Is it doinglike margin or point scored Queen One. I think it might be ye up, I'm getting it up. I don't know this.Is it's pe? It's Peasley, so he's dropping the boys all right, yeah,we're all on through the running back to his I've. Just realized that and noone listening or watching. No it's what we're talking about the running backs, who are, I think,will rise. I've got well, not I think, or as who I've got rising. I've gotdamo horris wasn't that Hag last week had in, I think Mides, but he hadtwenty three carries three red zone attempts, obviously Sony Michelle'sGone James White doesn't really have any deal in the running game there morejust to catch or- and it looks like the backfields completely his and he showedglims last year. Just maybe didn't have enough volume to be that relevant, likehe was sort of just a ninety to a hundred yard Russia everyweek and didn't have any catches, but this week he had three targets as well. So if you canstart getting one touch down a week cup of catches, all of a sudden he'sgetting. You know fifteen sixteen a week and is an I be to so I think he'sa riser. I've got pilcher's boy. Why? I just forgotten you do AndreSwift afoot, his first name for a second, I was going to call them toMichael, but yeah that haven, Mokete yeah, that's what I was thinking ofthrough our last chat. We had eleven targets, which is just outrageous as ariding back as a lover of JD meckisch. Pretty much a lover of any running backwho just plays is like a wide receiver and if the game script keeps going asit was last week for Detroit he's going to be used more as a past catcher thana running back and that certainly not a bad thing for fantasy pair ten tofifteen carries with eight to twelve targets. That's a pretty frighteningCombo with the massive floor and then the other one. I've got another.Detroit boy was low on him last week, but JamalWilliams had nine targets, which is just, as I mentioned before same thinggoes pretty silly. I ride running back forards. I've got Antonio Gibson, don'tTalk Shit Curt, not in the mood. I only had one red. He only had one red sontouch and I just think the Washington offense as a whole has taken a bit of ahit from fits injury. I just think there point scoring potential hasdecreased significantly and, as I mentioned earlier in the podcast, Idon't see them scoring much more than twenty points a week until fitty comesback, so yeah, Gibes and you'll get a lot of volume, but not necessarily thescores that you need in that same conversation, Janie Mekhissi drops forme. I had him pretty high. I had him on my bench actually and you whipped upless than one and I've got pilchers for not pilchers boy curses of man. AustinEpila had zero targets and people were saying: Maybe it's because he's injuredor whatever I don't see how getting a target is like if someone was injured,you'd think they'd get targets not carries because car carries are gettingabsolutely pump so yeah. I don't know that frightens me mate. I know theylooks good as a team, but maybe Herbert's going to cook too much toeven look down at Ecola. That's what I think I, the SB description, said thatthe charges were just doing too well...

...and he was thrown too far to get down toCala. You know those check downs, but if the, if the Washington d lines not enough toget Herbert, doing, check downs worried for your brother Git, what do you think about that? Whoare your running back rises and falls, but a few rises first one got. I have to have quite short, an Williams just becauseof the injuries to or the Ravens Abbes, so got a backlundfor a reasonable to you know I raiseable talking couldactually know find a way to people startinglight ups and then got a couple winners on quinces, Henderson and Mont. I boththought they looked pretty elite and we'll be trying to trade for both ofthem, so yeah I'll be big on both of them aswinners, and I've also got a man Chap because all I've heard from you boys isor he's like a twelve he's. Not that good always just got to produce you nowfifteen every week, lady, an we'll, not you more more Pitaka, let's be honest, he's either forced to be reckoned withflat, so I've got high high track trade, Valona so yeah and then obviously as well Mitchelbecause of the most injury then some loses. I am king o worried about Eclor as wellto be fair, but I feel like that might has been a single week kind of gramesgroup injury. I O o that kind of stuff. So bit of hope, I'm worried about Sake,one that oline looks dog shit for New York. He looked like he was struggling still,obviously recovering from an injury, but for a man who you know universallyconsidered a cop five running back when healthy. It's is certainly concerned thatthey've got such a weak offensive wine and I feel like it really might prohibit his productivity and yeah I'lllead it it that yeah definitely interested to see. If I can get a clawoff your hands, then they will do some business off are cabby airing. Ourlaundry mate bill do who have you got here? Abby rises. Obviously the nine is blokea Li Mitchell, but the blow calls probably most impressive. With wasHenderson just had like eighty percent of thecarriers. Michelle was pretty much a non factor and bears Runde top of the range in theNFL an he ended up bawling in the second half, so he could be an absolute Prostati, badI'm getting him off Quincy, but that's a different story for another time, Abe for le or different sort of different story. Foranother time I ma was a sake quit worrying. That's all I'll say could be repeated last season and Zack Moss was my other one, somethingweird going on with Moss. He was a healthy scratch and people are sayingyou may have broken like a intra club, black rule type thing, andso they didn't let him play, but yeah, I'm not really sure. What'sgoing on there, but single terry got every single carry so could be quite worrying for Zako whoactually liked coming in Hyah. I had that jam on my bench on aboutFriday and then yeah. I read that on Sunday I was like what the fuck but umyeah- that actually would make sense, pelchie reason because he's definitelythe well arguably the best running back there definitely second best, if notfirst but yeah. I definitely like the look of Tyson Williams. recompute got agood one there. I don't know if you ceilings that high, because I don'tthink Baltimore I will ever commit to just like one running back and let themrip and tear, but definitely could become an arby to sortof situation. Yeah, Hendo and Montgomery both look sick. I was justlooking out of there from the same draught that draft as a few of them, startingto sprout now and yeah they just I don't think either of them went huge infantasy, but their volume and their ability is pretty hectic, so yeahlooking forward to seeing how those boys Goi I do, did trade away Hendo.But I love him anyway. So I'd be happy...

...to see him rip and tear next. I we gotwide receivers, my rises, a cold Beasley, thirteentargets, pretty self explanatory, there John Brown's gone and they sin Sanders, but he doesn'tseem to be playing as big as big as a part and Beasley was pretty reliablelast year. Didn't have a huge ceiling because he just plays like slot andnever really has huge yardage. But you know in a PP league,very handy potential flex of flex option, especially when the buy startrolling around and then my other one's Dj chark. I think you know he had threecatches but twelve targets. Obviously Trevellan has an interest in him and hewas like A. I think it was around twenty in two thousand and nineteen inPR. So if he can get back to that sort of volume- and maybe jags improve alittle bit from what they were in two thousand and nineteen, because I thinkMinisi was maybe the quarterback, then he could be a decent player but yeah. Iknow you guys, don't think he's any good because he can't catch the footy,but yeah we'll have to wait and see in them. I only full light. Is CalvinRidley, I add a targets he's like really the only man there thevet thecase engaged, but I think it's a case didn't have a target gauge had to the wide receivers as a unit only hadten targets. That's my main concern a lot of check downs, a lot of hit ups toHurst and pits so yeah. I'm a little bit scared about redly think he's goingto get a lot of attention from defenses because obviously, apart from Pitt, is really the only frightening peace to defenses so reckonhe will be getting to you know: Two men looks pretty much every week and he hadno red zone attempts either. So the only thing in his favor is games.Groups like our lant are going to be saving neil down every week and he'sMatt Ryan just going to throw the footy but yeah. It doesn't don't really likemuch about Atlanta at the moment, bring back tod girly, because why not pilch,who have you got rising and falling on the wide receivers, be more than happy to tell you mit your man de Bo Samuel, someone thatnone of the experts, especially the ones that I follow rated highly at all.They were all on Iok and it was just the complete opposite story on theweekend will see what happens for the rest of the season, but hundred andeighty yards is just ridiculous, so he looks insane and o Cary Davis once again looks likethe clear jets number one wr Wilson and him had a good connection had the mosttargets by far touchdown think over a hundred yards too plays onthe jets, but she'll get some nice volume and then Cooper Cup would not be surprised ifthis is a metcalf locket type thing where he just alternates weeks withwoods, but Stafford in him. Just look like they had an insane connection.Every play even on woods, is touch down stuff and looked at cup. First wasn'topen, then looked at woods. Woods only had seventy percent of the snaps cuphad a hundred, and I've also heard that cup and Stafford have been having breakfast together each weekwatching tape, so he could break out as a number onethere it la of which is good for my fantasy side andthen fallers as a result. I've got woods there and also are you just fromwhat I mentioned about Cup and Samuel Yeah? No, that's definitely fair enough yeah!I don't know what's going on with I you can get with like. I don't know whathis snap con was, but yeah the those injury concerns going towards some, notthat confident the demos, a weapon, but hopefully I'll loth litle some boysinto some trades curtis. What a you got here, Nay I'll, keep it just sime one for therises and that's going to be a B for me. I personally thought it lookedabsolutely unreal against the cowboys he just look like he's old self.Obviously, there is a bit of any concern with the volume of targetsgiven their a three headed bonsal, with the addition of two pretty solid titansas well, so and also to two sold running back so so there is a volumeconcern, but I mean he just looked dominant to be fair andeven when he was, you know, kind of double teamed as well, or he was just in the thick of a thick of his Zon. Hehe still managed to make some pretty outrageous catches, so I feel like youmight have a return to so twenty...

...eighteen INA standards, but maybe notnecessarily in terms of fantasy and then a few follows I had Kenny got a day. Was it a big one for me? He that that New York offense just lookslike an apoline joke to be fair. The their offensive like scheme justjust looks uninventive and I just kind of predictable watching a you for you,two reds from from our professional professional Luk commentators on thegame, and they just said that they could kind of like just call out whatthe play was even before it happened. So it yeah looks like a bit of aconcern and then on another one on my team has to be Jerry J. obviously hewas looking a late up until half way through to the first third of thatthird quarter and then obviously got injured. So I had really highexpectations of Jerry and, unfortunately, his injury for the nextsix or so weeks is a concern and dropped him down quite a bit. Yeah, it's going to be interesting tosee what happens. Dempo the targets there does kjalar become fantasy,relevant that sort of stuff, or does something go back to being a genuine wrone, but yes, spicy stuff, we'll keep it going here because wehave been for here for a while. I don't want you boys to waste you days,talking Borus, but tight and rises and falls. I've got my men who I draftedbetrayed away. Jard Cook, as my riser had him fairly high anyway, like higherthan the experts, but still we'll probably increase it again. This weekhe had eight targets to red zone targets as well Herbert just going to be throw in thenut Hunter Henry's gone, Donald, param or whatever his name is didn't, havemany targets like being predicted and Cook Yeah. It looks like he could bethe main tall target for Herbert to hit and then James or shawness another one,not sure if you'll be fantasy relevant because you, obviously, unless you'rein like a massive league, you have to be like a tid and ten or fifteen to becared about, but travel arms through to him eight times and yeah. They looklike they could have. A bit of a connection. Obviously is tripet'sbetter over the season. That could be one to watch tied in fallers. I've gotLogan Thomas. He was my number four going into the week and he had threetargets and obviously cut it. Going down, hurts him. You still a red zonethreat but, as I keep mentioning just not on the not I've gone off theWashington offense, so yeah, if he's not going to get volume, then he'spretty irrelevant another one. I don't like is Mark Andrew's Lama only hadthirty attempts Mark Andrews had zero Red Zone, one ofthe other titen even had a red zone target and Andrews didn't Andrews onlyhad five targets in general, the receiving care random is strengthenedand I think it's been top six the last two years, but I reckon that might betoo big of an ask this year with the likes of Hock fans, Grunka or probablygoing to improve this year. So yeah, I think, Mark Andrew's time as a bit of aweapon in fantasy could be over curtis. What do you record of thishiens? May? U? I wouldn't. I don't know what I'm acolum be riser, but I'd wall it in there just because I think last year he obviously was notinconsistent, but he had those few games where he you know, I might havehad a seven and next game out of forty, but I feel like the sea, there's goingto be some serious consistency to him in terms of Kelsey kind of numbers.Where are talking a minimum of fifteen on fantasy and then you can rise up tooutrageous numbers like forty, so I feel like it's a serious prospect thisyear terms of foles pits. My man pits absolutedisgrace. Just don't even want to talk the dim all right. I've had enough I've had it actuallyand another riser for me is Hockin Hopkinson. Sorry, I think it was. I don't know. I didn'texpect that much this year from him actually giving the way the lines arelooking because I personally think that, like dog shit this year- and I justthought the whole offense is obviously going to go through Hawkinson, but Ijust didn't think they would even have much of an offense period, but I meanhe's proved me wrong. So far, so he's a rider in my books, yeah. Definitelyback that cool...

...who have you got new falls had pits. I greath Andrews Cal as well.I think there's a concern they and obviously when they get Bain back as well. That just takes it more volume awayfrom him and then I've also got. I think John ismet at an Hunte Henry or so concerned just because, obviously, lastyear, t they'll both consider probably to top ten tight end. Maybe top fifteentid ends and I think they're just going to still tag away from each other andthen like. I don't see that much fantasy Belle you it yeah, I'm with you,I the really lol my rankings. Actually, I think Johnny is like my forty eightfor something but yeah. I think fantasy pros had them a likeseven or something else like yeah. They both has been also e fifteen yeah. Iknow they don't have much wide receiving talent, but, like stillthat's, as you mentioned, they're just going to take, take each other outpiktook in her rises. Cook was a great shout from you,and I've gone with Gonka. A lot of people had him lower this year.I think just because of his age, but he bought out play had a huge snapcamp and fallers I've gone with Tanan of the packers one. Catch for about tenyards is looked pretty grim yeah, not a fan Atonian like legit he's justlike one of those tight and at you need to need. A touchdown could be a bitlike Johnny your last year, where, if you don't get a touchdown, you get lessthan five. But yes, I actually write the grant,call he'll be going up in my rankings. I think I think he had a pre season.Last year, like he just rolled in, I was pretty unfit. The first couplerounds and yeah reckonise fully firing now and could be a nasty proposition,but obviously as an owner of a top three Titan, not that relevant for meinto our week to preview, we're Goin to say a show better the week that wethink a lock we're going to have an upset of the week and we're going topoint out. Some bedding spreads lines handicaps whatever you want to call itthat interest us our sure, bets I'll start us off pretty dull, but temperateabout the falcons, probably got the number one seed against the number.Thirty two seed coming out of week, one- and it's also in Tampa- I think itmight be like I don't reckon it will be fifty points or anything outrageous,because it's a divisional match up theyre, usually a lot closer, and theFalcons might play a bit more conservative this thisweek after being embarrassed last week, but I think that's a walk Curtis. Whatare you got here? Yeah? I got the bucks and Falcons justto be Appoi someting. I think I think the pack is over. The wise is a prettysure thing as well. I feel like the package ing to be at back really hard. It's pretty embarrassed that was prettyembarrassing. You for is a pretty consistent and high achievingorganization so yeah. I really do expect a bigperformance from the packers and I've also got. I mean Washington over thegiants be controversial, but I mean I think the giants are an absolute joketo be fair, so yeah play on that yeah. It will betough for the giants to school. More than two touchdowns against thatdefense, like chasing against that or line D Jones, hopefully put some limeon pell choose your sure better. The week. May Ye couldn't agree more with the giants.Call there, but I've gone with like a value pick here which will actually netyour bit of money. If you're bet on them, that's the Patriots to be nigh.That's the jets for those playing at home. I think they're paying like adollar fifty to beat the jets and I think it's an absolute guarantee so yeah, it's bold, definitely bold to sayguarantee, but that Dan I say ninety eight Na my God on I'll, say eightyfour times out of a hundred I'll back it but yeah. I think that's a prettygood call! The jet D looked good on the weekend, but yeah that I don't thinkthey'll be on to score enough points against that Patriots. D upside of the week, as I mentioned, Jewboys affair. You disagree with me, but I'm I'm actually shocked that theiroutsiders Dallas against the charges...

...paying two dollars. Thirty to also to actually- and I noticed thatup the line- they're odds black two bucks so suggesting that it's gettingeven worse in terms of their their odds. I just don't get it where this comesfrom. They just push the super bowl contenders right down to the last playand I think their offense, like you, have to be a pretty good defence tohold them under thirty points. I Reckon Dallas win. Maybe forty two to thirty or something likethat. I know the defense ain't great and Justin Herbert probably going toreckon to shreds but yeah. I just don't see why Dallasaren't putting up both points against the charge just considering they justput up twenty nine against the buccaneers. So I was pretty shocked bythat one. So obviously I also like that linePictou got his upset of the week. I know I didn't necessarily agree with the on or with your quarter view on theodds bar so went Dallas to be charges just didn't see any of the other underdogs having as much as a chance as Dallas, fair enough curtis I'll give a couple makeup for pilchers,shocking, shocking inventively, but some got the Colt. The the rams think the coat can give the rams goodhot run for that money, and I don't think the rams are as good as pilethings that are being like what the third hoch chance do in the superbowlin Piso books but yeah. I think the culture reallysolid team and I think that if anyone can give them a run for the money, itcan be then also got the dolphins could give the billsaround for their money as well. So that could be a massive opposite Ye. We Toubanes back with some more consistent performance in this particular game and Alsi. Had the panthers be the same.I think the panthers are a very solitaire. I think that would well onlyget better as the continues so yeah yeah. I don't hate any of those calls.I think panthers much struggle against theSaints Defense because they didn't do well and suggest defense, but yeah. Idon't hate that I, like the Miami Call. Actually I think it's a sniff if thedefense turns up and then at the line, my favorite ones an. I don't want tosay too many so i'ld say my interesting ones. I've got a couple where it's justlike a big favorite and i think they'll win my more than lot the line like thebrowns bucks and chiefs. So that's pretty boring, but my two interestingones. I've got the bangles. There are the dogs to lines threeagainst the bears and i'm not even kidding for me this game of fidit. Iknow the bears looked all right against the rams, but i don't think the defenselooked that great and i think the bangles looked pretty good in bothsides of the field against the vikings and i reckon they're a serious sniffhere and then my the ones, the rams i actually completely just agree withcurtis. I reckon if the sea hawks can beat the cult by two touchdowns. Ithink the rounds can beat them by four touchdowns, as i think the rams are abetter side than the sea hawk. So the line is for around his favorites. Ireckon yeah, i think, that's pretty prettytight for my liking if it was maybe ten odd to a clear but anything less thanthat, i'm jumping on the rands all day, i'll stuff it baby pitch. What do youlike here? The footy team, monas three against the giants lockthat one away bills monastery in a half to miami like they could upset them butthink in all likelihood they win by more than three points in a rebound game, and then i've gotthe raiders to cover plus five and a half against. I dealers yeah. I actually thought that one wasinteresting because i don't know like i know the steals whenever the bills wasgood, but they scored a like a blocked pun it s like that's, not sustainableand the bills. Defense is good, not gray. They only scored two touchdownsagainst them. So yeah, i don't know, i'm not, i'm still not that hold on thesteels still got the missing playoffs and i don't just are with my thoughtsbefore the sea yeah the or sucks. So i can't think they're going to win bytheir games by like big margins, so...

...think five and a half quite generous yeah just could be a fair few turnos.There were a couple against the ravens. I think, and the stills is a whole nother beast ondefense, but yeah. If they can get if they can stay discipline on that sideof things, so definitely the hat to show out curtis what? If you got here,he i can city at three and a half at third three and a half to bolt. Ithink it would be a bit of a blow out to be fair, don't think i actuallygenuine can concerned about, but to be fair, i t think they're going to makeplayoffs. As i said earlier, got carnal at maybe four and a half verse channelslooked unreal, so i think that would be a serious blow out and then finally gotme nine as a natten, half verse the eagles- and i said i think the eaglesperformance was, i think it's just let people tooverrate them a bit is a lena, i think, could be in the worst white the sixteenin the ti nfl. So i think they might get a bit of a less and taught to themby the nights yeah. I actually like all three ofthose from you. There mate. I just think anyone. I just think the linesare so small in nfl, like anything where you're, likeseventy percent or more confident and the lines like less than for it's likehonestly, why you wouldn't back it but yeah, a great m, pretty spicy callsgreat potty boys being a fairly long. One think we're up to an hour in liketwelve minutes, but yeah ben huge loved love both of your work today, we'll seeif we return next week, we're sort of just playing the nfl episode by yea. So yeah well sauce and get back to you,but until then enjoy me two of the nfl les know your thoughts down below andyeah. I have a good wait.
