Running Expectations for Kyler Murray and the Cardinals 31:54
- Kyler Murray is expected to run, and his rushing line for week one is set at 26.5 yards.
- The Cardinals have a good matchup for running quarterbacks against Atlanta.
- The return of key players like James Conner and Hollywood Brown, along with a home game, adds to the Cardinals’ energy and potential.
“And I think Kyler is going to run. I mean, his sportsbook line of rushing in week one is 26.5 rushing yards…So you’ve got the weapons coming back. James Conner will be out there. Hollywood will be out there…the kind of energy will be with the Cardinals.”
Taylor Heinicke‘s Potential and the Cardinals’ Defense 34:24
- The speaker considers Taylor Heineke a desperation streamer and does not see much ceiling for him.
- The Cardinals’ defense has been effective against tight ends but struggles against wide receivers.
- Drake London, who is the speaker’s start of the week, is expected to benefit from this matchup.
“Taylor Heineke, throwing two touchdowns, seems long odds to me…So Drake London to me, I know he’s your start of the week. I think he’s an excellent play…The Cardinals under this new coaching staff have been pretty good against the tight position, very bad at wide receiver.”
- The Detroit Lions, with a record of 6-2, are facing the 4-4 Los Angeles Chargers.

- Jason attempts to deduce Andy’s strategy, highlighting the popularity of Ferguson as a top tight end option.
- The matchup between the Lions and Chargers is analyzed, with notes on the teams’ records and the DK Sportsbook line.

- The importance of playing David Montgomery and Jermair Gibbs is emphasized due to their consistent performance.
- The thin wide receiver room of the Lions leads to relying on players like La Porta and Gibbs.
“Monty Gibbs, La Porta Brown.” 39:06
Jameson Williams and the Detroit-Chargers Game 41:00
- Jameson Williams‘ limited playing time and disappointing performance make him an unlikely choice for DFS lineups.
- The Chargers’ offensive struggles and limited touchdown output since losing Mike Williams are noted.
“I don’t think it should be underestimated. Like if Quge can’t perform, they were getting production out of Joshua Palmer for that brief moment in time. Now you have two wide receivers out and like Quinten Johnson and Jaylen Guiton not fixing that.” 41:36
- The New York Giants with a 2-7 record are up against the Dallas Cowboys with a 5-3 record.
