- The hosts critique Arthur Smith’s press conference where he attempts to explain Bijon’s limited opportunities in the red zone.
- They sarcastically discuss how other coaches like Kyle Shanahan would handle similar situations without complicated explanations.
“Look I am probably the one that goes to bat about NFL V fantasy the most where it’s like look players don’t you know we’re like oh why does Ken Kenney Gainwell get snaps or like whether it’s intangibles right like why do those players get snaps. This is indefensible.” “But total carries this is insane.”
Tyler Algier vs. Bichon’s carries 17:13
- Tyler Algier has 116 carries this season, while Bichon has 103.
- The disproportionate number of carries is indefensible, given Algier’s lower yards per carry.
- This decision is hurting the offense.
“You cannot possibly give a guy who’s running at 3.2 yards a carry more carries than the guy running at five yards a carry.”
David Montgomery‘s return 17:53
- David Montgomery is expected to be a full participant after being hurt twice.
- It is believed that he will resume his role as the primary running back, with Gibbs in a supporting role.
- Montgomery’s return will likely result in him earning more touches.

Justin Jefferson‘s injury and potential return 18:54
- Justin Jefferson‘s head coach, Kevin O’Connell, deems it unlikely for him to play in Week 10.
- However, the 21-day window for his return has been opened, indicating positive progress.
- Jefferson may be back on the field either next week or the following week.
D’Onta Foreman‘s potential performance 19:33
- Clear Herbert is not expected to play, which led to Foreman being highlighted as a potential player to watch.
- Foreman’s performance tonight could go either way due to the uncertainty surrounding the match-up.
- However, it is worth considering that Foreman had a solid performance last week, and the game script may favor a run-heavy strategy.
“Yeah, I mean, I did all morning long everyone’s been saying like you just smashed play the onto Foreman, and I do agree that you should play him… So you have to play Foreman like he’s been effective.”
Arthur Smith’s leadership and potential changes 21:03
- There seems to be a negative attitude towards head coach Arthur Smith among fans in Atlanta.
- The response to his leadership has been visceral, and many do not approve of him.
- It remains uncertain if Smith’s seat is considered “hot”, but some fans are already calling for his removal.
“Like, are you guys actively despising your own head coach? Y’alls reaction is pretty visceral but people yet don’t like him at all… Are they actually calling? Like that is the seat hot?”
Bill Belichick’s frustration with Germany game 23:24
- There is speculation that Bill Belichick might be frustrated about having to play a game in Germany.
- The Indianapolis Colts will be facing the New England Patriots in this game.
- The game is expected to be tight, with the Colts having scored 20+ points in every game so far this season.
“Is it just me or do you imagine Bill Belichick was just super frustrated to have to go to Germany for this game?”
Rhamondre Stevenson as a flex option 24:22
- Remandry Stevenson is recommended as a strong fantasy option this week.
- The Indianapolis Colts defense has been weak against the run in recent weeks, making Stevenson even more enticing.
- Stevenson has the potential to perform well and can be considered as a running back one going forward.
“I am very in on Remandry Stevenson this week… I believe you could play as equal as E.K. Elliott as a decent flex option.”
New England vs. Colts Running Backs 24:49
- New England has struggled to score touchdowns.
- The Colts defense has given up a lot of touchdowns to running backs.
“I think Remandry gets in the end zone.” – The Fantasy Footballers

- There were concerns about his health in the previous weeks.
- The expectation was for him to take a few weeks to become the main leader of the backfield.

Comparing Jonathan Taylor and Zach Moss 26:05
- Jonathan Taylor had 74 percent of snaps, 18 carries, and 23 opportunities last week.

Uncertainty with Bengals Wide Receivers 31:09
- With T Higgins and Jamar Chase out, there is uncertainty among the Bengals wide receivers.

“This one is in Cincinnati. Yeah, I don’t like the matchup for him.”

Evaluating Starters 33:40

- The commentator personally uses Kyler Murray as a benchmark for evaluating whether to start a player.
“So I agree I mean this I don’t think he’s an absolute locked-in starter for instance my weekly barometer has been Kyler like would I start Kyler.”
Injury Concerns 33:47

“he might be the most important pass catcher on this team.”
Ranking Wide Receivers 35:55

“I’ll still have Nico Collins at the top and I’ll go tank.”
Analyzing Chris Olave‘s Performance 37:56
- Chris Olave‘s recent fantasy results have been underwhelming, and the commentator provides analysis of his performance thus far in the season.
- Olave’s catch percentage and the difficulty of his targets are discussed as possible reasons for his lackluster numbers.
“The numbers (for Chris Olave) 6 for 46 not impressive…catching only 50% of his targets this year are deemed catchable…the targets are downfield and in cars struggling to be on the same page with him.”
Discussing Long-Term Dynasty Context 41:36
- It’s important to occasionally take a step back and consider long-term dynasty context.
- The future of certain players, like the wide receiver in New Orleans, is uncertain.
- While Olave has not performed as well as expected, Wilson would be the preferred choice in a long-term comparison.
- Olave’s current ranking as the wide receiver 19 is disappointing considering his draft position.
Assessing Alexander Mattison‘s Potential 42:21
- Madison is likely to have plenty of opportunities to succeed or fail.
- With the absence of Acres, Madison’s volume should increase.
- Comparing Rashad White and Madison for the rest of the season, Madison would be the preferable choice.
“Madison is a trade-for candidate because the volume will be there.”
Evaluating Jordan Addison‘s Performance 43:09
- Addision’s rest-of-season outlook is uncertain due to various factors.
- The return of Jefferson and Addison’s upcoming matchups make his situation challenging.
- It will be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out for Addison.
“Jefferson will be back and then it’s like Ken Ken Dobbs support multiple wide receiver options he didn’t really support one in Arizona so you got to imagine Jefferson is better than Addison for sure.”
Revisiting the Saints Defense and Michael Thomas 43:40
- The Saints defense has struggled against tight ends in the past six weeks.
- Thomas’ recent goose week resulted in him being dropped from the league of record.
- Despite the disappointment, Thomas was replaceable with other interesting assets like defenses.
- The Kansas City Chiefs defense was a secret pickup.

Analyzing the Green Bay vs. Pittsburgh Matchup 44:35
- Green Bay Packers are 3-5, while the Pittsburgh Steelers are 5-3.
- The Draft Kings Sportsbook line favors Pittsburgh with a -3 spread.
- The Packers face a tough matchup on the road against a strong Steelers defense.
- It is hard to envision the Packers scoring enough points to win this game.
“I can’t even create it in my head the situation where they score enough points to win here.”
Considering Trust in Jordan Love 46:56
- Despite the favorable matchup, Jordan Love‘s injuries make it difficult to trust him.
- Love’s lack of a consistent baseline performance adds to the uncertainty.
- Christian Watson‘s limited targets and injuries also make him a risky play.
- The lack of trust in Love and Watson affects their potential fantasy value.
“Right now, it’s really hard to have enough trust… I don’t have that.”
Assessing the Running Back Committee in Green Bay 47:51
- The Packers have been slightly weaker against running backs.
- Najee and Jalen Warren both have favorable matchups.
- Najee may be the preferred play due to his goal-line touchdown upside.
- Both players can be flexed if needed.
“The matchup is really good for both of these guys.”
Speculating on George Pickens‘ Target Volume 48:49
- Deontay Johnson will continue to receive a high volume of targets.
- While George Pickens will also receive targets, they may be more downfield and potentially inconsistent.
- Pickens’ performance can vary between incredible and terrible.

Previewing the Tennessee vs. Tampa Bay Matchup 49:10
- Both Tennessee and Tampa Bay have struggled this season.
- Tampa Bay’s defense, particularly their injured cornerbacks, may create opportunities for Tennessee’s offense.
- The matchup is expected to be low-scoring due to the weaknesses of both teams.
Throwing against weak defenses 50:10
- The opposing team’s defense is currently very easy to throw against.
- Even a low-performing quarterback, like a banana, would have success throwing against them.
“It’s very easy to throw against them right now.””
Considerations for starting BananaRama 50:17
- Banana Ram is in consideration for starting because of the favorable matchup.
- He is also a viable option in DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) lineups.
- However, it may not be necessary to put Banana Ram in your lineup if you have other strong options.
“So Banana Ram is he in starting consideration considering what we.” “He is in DFS considerations.” “I don’t think you need to put them out there.”
Evaluating Taylor Heinicke 50:31
- Taylor Heineke may not be a good choice to start this week against the Cardinals.
- There are other quarterbacks, like Sam Hal, who would be a better option.
- However, if you believe Heineke can throw at least two touchdowns, he could be a viable choice.
“I think there’s probably a handful of guys like Sam Hal like you know would you go Taylor Heineke against the Cardinals.” “I actually would play on that because I don’t know if Heineke can throw two touchdowns but I think it’s fine if you want to go that way.”
Uncertainty surrounding Hopkins in London 50:45
- The situation regarding Hopkins playing in London is unclear.
- It is unknown whether he will be available for the game.
“Hopkins what’s the situation on London because that would matter a little bit to me.” “Yeah I don’t know.” “Last I heard the bridge was falling down.”
Kyle Philips as a DFS option 51:30
- Kyle Phillips is worth considering in DFS lineups.
- He had a significant number of targets in recent games.
- Since Tampa Bay’s defense has struggled against wide receivers, Phillips could be a good value play.
“I want to bring up Kyle Phillips because Kyle Phillips got a lot of targets.” “Somebody has to fill in like you brought up the defense Tampa has given up like thirty-five to thirty-seven points the wideouts.” “But Kyle Phillips is getting more involved and I’m just throwing it out there for like DFS I think he’s the bare minimum.”
Tough matchup for Derrick Henry 52:10
- Derek Henry faces a challenging matchup against the Buccaneers.
- Tampa Bay’s defense has been strong against the run for a long time.
- Henry’s success in this game might be dependent on the weather or unexpected factors.
“Derek Henry RB seven on the year Tampa has yet to allow Red Zone rushing touchdown to a running back this year.” “The Buccaneers have just been good for a long long time against the run.”
Chris Godwin‘s performance and injury 52:45
- Chris Godwin had a relatively quiet game, with only two catches for 16 yards.
- He may have been hampered by an injury during the game.
- Despite playing the majority of snaps, it’s unclear if the injury affected his performance.
“Chris Godwin managed two for 16 on a week where Tampa Bay put up thirty-seven points.” “He was also banged up at one point.” “I don’t remember the specifics of when that happened but obviously he did play the majority of game.”
Number of episodes before famous intro 54:14
