Trent:

Today on the fantasy football dudes, we are going to talk about. The dude pass Hey, we got some more Yeti cups we're giving away. So stay tuned. Come to the fantasy football dudes podcast. This is Trent alongside me is Samuel and Jordan. Guys, you have a good Christmas? Was Santa good?

Samuel:

Santa was good to me. I had a great holiday. My brother did not win the fantasy football championship. So I'm a little happy in a household. What about you, Jordan?

Trent:

Jordan? You were in the championship.

Jordan:

I had a really good Smith's Christmas was good. Everything was good up until Sunday.

Trent:

I'm so sorry. So you took second in the fantasy football league and I drove by your house and I wasn't being creepy. You took second in the deck, the halls championship too, which is, The light show extravaganza. So two second places this week, that's gotta be tough.

Jordan:

My brother's thing, but it's cool. I helped a little bit with it and yeah, but you got on the roof and got on the roof. Probably the most dangerous roof raise the roof, but Sunday. So actually start on Saturday. My opponent has Mike Evans. I have Deondra Hopkins, Mike Evans at 37 jondrow Hopkins at eight Sunday. I'm going into it. I'm like, it's going to take a miracle. My best chance is Patrick from home. So what is my home? So they probably what's up is the worst game of the year. So I lost defense championship. That it is what it is like, I'm happy with second place. It's not the end of the world, but what even was more, made me more mad on draft Kings this week, I play two lineups, right? So I'm a main cash lineup, a main tournament lineup. My turn, the line was good. I didn't want any crazy money, but it was solid. It been cashed. I have a rant about the Texans defense. So I play Texans defense can Cincinnati Bengals and my main cash team. That's where most of my money's at, I missed out on the cash line by four points. The Texans defense got me

Trent:

nothing

Jordan:

negative four points. Oh, so you want to make, how much money do you miss out on? I would have dealt with my money up and that's too bad. So I went from, I got some of my money back, but I went from a really good day. I literally, I didn't have the best team. I made mistakes. But I literally could have played any other defense.

Trent:

That's bad. Brandon Allen quarterback seven on the week. So Texans made him look great.

Jordan:

I don't know what I was thinking. Yeah. I could have played the Panthers a hundred dollars cheaper against Dwayne Haskins. And I'm sure we'll get Dwayne Haskins later, but I don't know what I could have played the Redskins evens for $20 more.

Trent:

If anybody played Brandon Allen and your championship this week, screenshot that and send it to us. I would love to see that takes some guts. I'm sure you won. If you did it,

Samuel:

we'd love to have a talk with you. Train. I already broke the commissions. Courtesy, even have a championship under you. I got a champ. I got a championship broke the commissioner's curse. I kept the championship within the family on our championship league.

Trent:

That was nice. Besides me winning the championship, I have some good news for the league. that's true. The Yeti, the soundbites here today, we have some more Yeti's to give away. And what we're going to do is if you want these Yetis, we still have Go ahead, go to our Apple podcast page. And give us a five-star review in the best review, screenshot it and email it to us or send it to our Twitter, Facebook, but email trent@thefantasyfootballdudes.com and the best review gets a Yeti cup. So we got a couple left, so don't miss out. If you're mad, you didn't win. Go right ahead. Leave us review screenshot at sentences. Send it to us on Twitter, Facebook email. Whatever. Here's your chance. If you guys really love us, we might return the favor

Samuel:

Review us. You can roast us. Do what you want. It doesn't have to be good. Just has to make us laugh. And you might end up with a Yeti in your hand.

Jordan:

Put the five stars. Five stars. Yeah.

Trent:

We want five stars. We got a couple of Yeti's left. They went unclaimed. I guess people spammed us. I don't know, but we got Yetis. We don't need them. We got enough. Samuel is drinking out of one right now. Yeah. Give us some good reviews.

Samuel:

We have some news and notes from around the league week. 17. Next year, the NFL might be expanding the playoffs, keeping that 17 playoff. They might even add an extra week of games. Have you guys, have you heard that? I haven't heard that.

Trent:

I've heard that we will be having a weak 17 championship next year. They're adding more games.

Jordan:

So are you going to have 18 weeks?

Trent:

I think it's 18 weeks. It's 18. I'm not a hundred percent sure on it yet. And I don't know if they're doing that rule where guys can only play so many games, but it's sounds like a fantasy nightmare.

Jordan:

I have to hear more, but there's gonna be more football. I think there's to be late by weeks, it could really affect fantasy playoffs. Are we talking two biweekly two by per team? It makes sense. Especially with guys getting hurt and. Yeah, I don't mind it. It's, they're all playing 16 games still, but 18 weeks, maybe that's what it is. I need to look into it a little bit more. I've seen it though.

Samuel:

We'll see. I don't know. They floated these headlines out early in the year. I think who knows it could be one of those rules.

Jordan:

The NFL just puts down the drain after they didn't like the. A reception. I got on it, but we'll see.

Trent:

No more Duane mask skins. He had the whole chicken deal happen and he had a bad game and now he's gone.

Samuel:

The Washington football team released him. It was it was a tough week for Dwayne mannequins.

Jordan:

Here's my deal with Haskins. There's people talking about this and that the reality is he doesn't want to be professional football player. He's mad at some point, like it's a business, you have taken professional and he didn't want to be there. I don't think has anything to do with how bad he is because he's sucked. But I think an organization can on a young player will be able to wait on a guy who's sucked, but you have to want to get better. And I don't think Haskins proved to anyone that organization that he wanted to be the starting quarterback. He needed to sit and learn in the NFL. He wasn't ready.

Samuel:

Urban Meyer. Didn't give him the highest praise. I don't know if another NFL team takes a chance on him.

Jordan:

You got guys like Josh Rosen still in the league, so I'm sure Haskins will find somewhere to latch on to somewhere. But he just needs to really grow up and really look at himself in the mirror.

Samuel:

But Roseanne also has white privilege. So we have to keep that in mind.

Trent:

Adam geese, is that guy good at anything? I'm pretty sure he only was the jets coach this year, so they could tank and get Trevor Lawrence and he wins two games. And I don't know who they're going to take now. What quarterback are they going to take? But Adam gaze. You're not even a good loser.

Samuel:

Do you think the jets keep Adam Gacy? You might've saved his job? I

Trent:

don't think so. Like I, even though he finished so strong, no,

Samuel:

they keep Sam Darnold though. He's finished the season strong and with the talent he has around him, you can't blame him for their struggles.

Jordan:

That's the, I've heard a lot of people talk floating around the idea of the jets, keeping Sam Darnold and taking. There's this really good offensive tackle. I think it's Sule and he's both silly, like one of the generational town at quarterback and Trevor Lawrence, general generational talent and offensive tackle, and this guy Sule. And so I've talked, I've heard them talk about, they had that other really good often cycle Becton. So you put back in, in school at the offensive tackle position and keep Donald instead of fields. I don't know. I think I'm higher on fields in some people, so I don't know.

Samuel:

I think the jets could end up being pretty good. They might have some fantasy, more fantasy relevance next year. Sule paranasal his first name is not what you think it is. If you look it up online, but Panesa was how you pronounce it. And he's going to be a great protector of Donald if they drafted him and who knows, maybe they draft Travis TNF, Clemson in the second round or something and replaced Frank or the jets could be on the uptick.

Trent:

I just have some weird feeling that Donald's going to the Patriots. That's just, that's my gut call for the off season. I see Donald playing for bill bell check. I don't think Newton's good.

Samuel:

I don't think noon's going back. He had 50 yards past, I think he had 35 yards passing last night versus the bills. I, and they threw in Jarrett Stidham after the third quarter. And I don't think Belczyk did you guys see Belczyk throwing the phone? That was the fastest meme I've ever seen. It was on the internet right after that. And you could use that for so many things.

Trent:

the Cleveland Browns, all four of the receivers didn't get to play. Do you see why they didn't get to play?

Samuel:

They were in a hot tub.

Trent:

They were in a hot tub with one player who had COVID they're lucky. All they got possibly was COVID honestly,

Samuel:

I'm sad. I wasn't invited hot tubs and COVID I'm in give us a call. Next time the dudes went in. I think that's about it with our news.

Trent:

Hey, this is our fantasy award show. We got some good awards here and these aren't just your normal, boring awards. We got like best dressed, most likely to drop out of high school, all kinds of good stuff, best body. We're we talk to our sponsors enter the crest. We're going to do, we're going to be here around show. I'm not sure how much we're going to be going on year round, but. Look for us a couple of times a month. So go ahead and subscribe. Leave us a review. Get that Yeti. We're the dudes and we're here for you. So with that, let's go ahead and jump into our dudes and dads. Our quarterback dude's of the week, we had Josh Allen at number one, the prior to fireball, Tom Brady at number two, and no one saw this, but the red rifle, Andy Dalton that number three. Yeah, that's an amazing third. Quarterback dude, he might lead the Cowboys into the playoffs and he had quite the performance against my star of the week.

Jordan:

Jalen hurts. How the Cowboys are they going to make the playoffs? This is unrehearsed.

Samuel:

They need the Washington football team to lose for the Cowboys to get into the play.

Jordan:

Oh, so it's the football team and the Eagles play. And who the Cowboys play? The giants. Yeah. That's, it's going to be interesting. I think what happens if the football team loses and the Cowboys lose, the football team gets in right. I believe so because the football team has the tiebreaker. I'm pretty sure. Yeah. Go to the other conference. You go to the AFC and you have the 11 wind Colts. They're going to the Colts, beat the Jaguars.

Trent:

They let them, they might not even get in. They let their foot off the gas. And that second half there dad's the week we got Baker, like I said, all of his receivers got in a hot tub with a COVID guy. Matt Stafford got hurt and two Is to have the worst quarterback in the NFL right now. I'm seeing a lot of that on Twitter people are done with yeah.

Samuel:

I think you just have to get him more leeway. He's a rookie. He didn't even have like training camp. It was a different year for, it was a tough year for rookie. I don't think he's. Hitting all the receivers, something that Kurt Warner said on the broadcast, I thought was really interesting. He was waiting for receivers to become Alabama open and you just can't do that in the NFL guys are going to be a lot more covered and that's why they threw fits magic and to fire things up.

Trent:

And our recap on our picks of the week, we had Lamar Jackson's the star of the week. Jalen hurts and Baker and Lamar Jackson, what did he finish as he was QB 13. And Jalen hurts was quarterback when Jalen hurts Finnish as. Quarterback 12 and Baker was just, he got baked. I think that was horrible.

Samuel:

Yeah. Baker had over 50 pass attempts on the game and he had, I don't think any starting with serious, I wanted to start Rashard Higgins

Jordan:

but he got 15 times as to Austin Hooper and I'm sure the other. I think he threw the ball 20 times. It was tight in

Trent:

disclaimer, we did this show last Wednesday. I would not have made Baker my star of the week. If I knew all of his wide receivers were not going to play. So Baker you're on the dead list. You were my start of the week and you made me look like a baboons.

Samuel:

You see the Browns receivers and Baker. They were doing a game walkthrough in a hotel parking garage, the day of the game, right in the snow. So th that's a that's hard practice and those receivers in the NFL, they aren't used that type of a yeah.

Trent:

The jets are a bad team. There's no way they've played receivers that battle here. Those are all practice squad guys Our running back dudes of the week Camaro at man. Everyone's talking about how good Camaro did, but I don't think if you had Camaro on your team, you played in the championship. The guy went bananas.

Samuel:

Had a few rough weeks in between. I know of a few guys who started him in the championship. He scored what? 56 points, 56 points. And that's just standard. I was seeing a lot of match-ups that guys had Stefan Diggs and Tom Brady, and they actually beat the opposing team with tomorrow.

Trent:

That's crazy. He didn't catch that many passes, but the guy scored six touchdowns and he could have seven, but they gave the ball taste and pill to go line. Six touchdowns. That's more than a lot of running backs have on this season.

Samuel:

I think Sean Payton wanted to give taste some hell a little pay bonus. That's why he got on that last touchdown, but it was an amazing Christmas day performance.

Trent:

We had our rang back one on the week, had six T rushing guts Jones and then miles Gaskin with only two rushing touchstones are running back to. And I haven't heard of this guy since college, but P Ryan is our running back.

Samuel:

Number three. I haven't heard from him since college, either out of Oklahoma. What does he see a backup on the jets? He's a backup on the bangles and angles.

Trent:

He went off in the Bengals, other to the text and the Texas deep, cause I don't even want to get don't get me. I don't want to talk about Texas deep in me and then our running back Dead's man. I just have Melvin Gordon. He was awful. He didn't make the top 30, just awful.

Jordan:

He was in a great spot though, without Phillip Lindsay against that charges. I wasn't good. Yeah. I he had 80 yards. The problem is he just drew luck, drew lock. He got them at the goal line. It was the one yard line, Melvin Gord. They didn't hand the ball to Melvin Gordon. Drew lock got a one-year at Russian touchdowns. So if Gordon gets that touchdown, it's probably a, you probably feel a lot better about that.

Trent:

Zach Moss. Samuel picked him his side of the weekend. What was he at? He got a touchdown after touchdown.

Samuel:

I think maybe he was running back 21 on the week. So he had 12 carries, 57 yards and a touchdown. Yeah, he's definitely going to be a guy I'm targeting next year in the draft

Trent:

four net ended up with on the league. Leonard four net was running back. Number 17. He had nine carries 34 yards in one touchdown, three catches 32 yards.

Jordan:

I think if that's even a remotely close game for nuts.

Trent:

Brady didn't even play the second half. So Brady wasn't the quarterback number two of the week. And Gabby comes in second half and just keeps feeding Mike Evans, the ball. It was brutal. Then we go over to our wide receiver dudes the week. Davante Adams, that guy he's wearing a crown in the snow. He looks like what was that? Is he like some gang of game of Thrones character or something? I don't know what that is.

Samuel:

He looked very Royal. He deserves that crown. He what'd, he have three touchdowns, four touchdowns, that guy he deserves to get paid even more. He is Aaron Rogers, favorite Seaver and Davante Adams stay tuned. He's getting a fantasy dudes award later in the year.

Trent:

I bet he is excited. We might seem that in the mail Stefon, Diggs, that guy. Big game, Mike Evans, like Jordan said that was brutal. I don't know how Mike Evans wasn't wide receiver. Number one, this was just a week to be a quarterback or be a ride receiver and quarter I could argue our top two dudes of the week are also the top two receivers in the league right now.

Jordan:

I think Davante Adams and Steph digs are by far. I think you, yeah, there's other guys up there, but those two are right there with the two best in the league.

Trent:

It's possible that you played a guy this week with two of those three on his team.

Jordan:

Oh, for sure.

Trent:

Yeah. Yeah. My dad of the week was my pick of the week. Marvin Jones, total dead Stafford got hurt. What did he get hurt? First quarter early in the game. The bucks scored points for that to be a recipe for a lot of points scored and. Matt Stafford.

Jordan:

Marvin Jones probably did better than what I mean. He over-performed in that situation.

Samuel:

Hey Trent, your dut of the week matches mine. My guy started the COVID hot tub party in Rashada Higgins. And Hey Jordan, you were right on D Deontay Johnson. Big. Ben started calling his own plays in the second half, the cold squares, renewing, knowing what is coming from the predictable sealers offense. And then I heard big Ben just started calling his own plays.

Jordan:

And that's when they made that come back. He looked like he remembered how to throw the ball. Yeah, the reality is you're talking about Deontay Johnson. I just liked him because he gets 14. He's getting 14 targets, a game and the Steelers can't run the ball. And I just, it just volume with that guy. So I'm happy with the AZA Johnson call. it was a good week.

Samuel:

At least we made one wide receiver start Trent, who were our tightened dudes.

Trent:

Jimmy Graham tied in one on the week Irv Smith tied into, did he had what? Irv Smith probably lost a lot. Dalvin cook owners, the championship. Cause that guy was just stealing touchstones from Dalvin cook. He had to. How many catches did talented Irv Smith had, I think he had like double digits. No, he had he had two touchdowns. I know, but let me look here.

Jordan:

Six catches. Yeah. But yeah, two, two red zone catches. The guy went off and then Travis, Kelsey, tidy number three. How did Logan Thomas have a touchdown or no, he got one called back. He had a 20 yard touchdown or in late in the game, like even the fourth quarter got called back for holding.

Trent:

Tanya? Did he not do too much this week in the snow?

Samuel:

It was Devante Adam show, right? So there's not,

Trent:

Hey there's only one King of green Bay. I don't think they have a queen there. Maybe it's Rogers. Who knows, there's not enough room in that crown for Tanya and this week. And then Dallas got hurt. I don't think he did anything. Yeah. A bit of a quiet for the Eagles in Jerry world. And the Cowboys came away with the win. What about going to that snow game? This should have been an Aaron Jones game in the snow. Do, are they going to reassign that guy? Are they going to say, Hey, it's Dylan time one time.

Samuel:

I think he's another guy you want to target in the draft next year. Yeah, I, you just,

Jordan:

it's Aaron Jones, a free agent this year. I, this is last year's thinking franchise tag and we're paying money, but they're not going to, they drafted doing in the second round. So they went Jordan Love and doin. I, yeah, that was quite the performance.

Samuel:

I remember pre-draft there were pictures of his legs floating around on the internet. I saw those. Those are beefcake legs. He does not skip leg day. And the Packers had Jamal Williams there, who they liked. They like using Jamal Williams, I would not be shocked if he used the free agent to next week. So I think I would imagine they resigned Jamal Williams and they could just go Jamal Williams.

Jordan:

AIJ Dylan be a lot cheaper than resigning Aaron Jones. I think they really liked Jamal Williams there. I think Aaron Rogers really likes Shamal Williams and let's be honest if Aaron Rogers likes you, you're going to be around. And what about David Montgomery? He finished the season at running back number eight. Anyone. No one would have guessed that I'll get back in. We'll get back. Yeah. Yeah, we got that covered. Yeah. So dude, our defense is a weak defense number one Panthers. Jordan talks about that. I don't know how they were. Number one bucks were number two. I thought Stafford was gonna be able to throw a lot of touchdowns. I thought it'd be a high scoring game. One team held up there into the bargain. 49ers were back. They upset the Cardinals what's going on with the Cardinals. Can Kyler Murray put a full good season together? I don't know. I think so. I think he's just do short. Honestly, every time I watch a game with the Cardinals, he looks shorter. I don't know if he has it in him. He got hurt last week. He's going to play this week. Luckily hurt too. Probably no one saw that game cause it was on Amazon prime. So you knows, I've never watched an Amazon prime game. Have you. No, but I actually watched it on Twitch. It was streaming free on Twitch too, which I've never, I don't even know how to get on Twitch. Is that like just Google, twitch.com and then it pops up. You have to make an account or is it like jackets or I don't think, I don't know what that is either right with that guys. We got some awards here. All right. We got some awards and. With our awards guys before, like who, who is our rookie of the year? Like you guys tell me who is your rookie of the year? I want to know who are we giving rookie of the year for it this year, my rookie of the year, I'm going to give it to James Robinson. He was a waiver wire pickup. If you drafted that early. And he was amazing. He was an RB one for a lot of guys and he finished in the top five in rushing and he was a solid performer on awful team all year. So I'm giving my awards to James Robinson. Yeah, I can't go wrong with James Robinson. I do think someone, I think Jalen hurts is right there too, because if you picked up Jalen hurts. I know there wasn't a long but he balled out for three weeks and that's the playoffs, truer streaming quarterbacks. All year you got in the playoffs picked up, Jalen hurts. He, you might've won championship with Jalen hurts. That's true. I think we're going more longevity, but you make a case there, right? I probably give it to Herbert before Jalen Hearst, but that's just because of the longevity, I guess neither one played a full season. I would give the rookie of the year to Herbert over Hertz. Hertz had two good games. Yeah. They were great games, but her, but they were timely games and they were big games. Yeah. But you were gutsy to play them too though. I think Herbert showed out each and every week. I think. I think if we took a vote, you will choose her over Hertz and another rookie I'd given a word to is Justin Jefferson. I think this guy can't be overlooked. He deserves it way more than Hertz. And that hurts. What about the charger's trainer? He could get a rookie of your award. Yeah, he could get Dr. The year doctor of the year of chargers. You got doctor of the year over there and he's not even getting his job. I don't know that happens. Our quarantine haircut award the year that goes to Derek Henry. I don't know what this guy's going on, but. Maybe when barber shops open up again, he, his haircut, he's got like a lizard tailing on the back of his helmet. The last time that guy washed his hair was. Probably the first time in the snow and the green Bay snow was the first time his hair had gotten wet. And while I hope that what water just ruined his hair and he has to cut it because that is the worst look I've ever seen. His mom would love it. If he got a hair cut, man. He was like rat tail. When people in the snow with that thing, like he should have had a way better. Again, someone has to describe him by that ponytail and tackle him is that is legal. No, it is legal. Yeah. It's part of the Jersey, but that's that's a rat to catch that though. Oh, he's probably like people, your hand would get lost in that thing. I've touched a lot worse and you have gloves on when you're playing football. So I think we're having a little malfunction here. Sorry about that. Hey, it's hot tub time. Sorry about that. Yeah, I, you got quarantine haircut award of the year. We are going to give you some horse in Maine shampoo. Derrick Henry it's on the way. Should we send him a super cuts gift card to super cuts gift card? I don't know. Hey yeah. Maybe start with the champagne. I don't think locks of love would take that. No, it, I think it's infested. It probably is. COVID all right. Our most changed award goes to ZQ Elliott. This guy came in and was like the cool guy, and I think he ended up on the science wall. Yeah. He used to be the cool guy hanging down and canned Coon, pre-season, he'd come back rip, just rip off 20, 20 point game performances. But now he has a bunch of weird piercings. I don't know if he's those nose rings are horrible. What's he trying to do get a job at the carnies? Like seriously? I think he's spending way too much time in hot topic. I don't know if he has like a goth girlfriend or something. That's giving him all these bad ideas, but he looked. Depressed and down all year, he's missing his buddy deck. Oh no. If I, Hey, if that guy is running a carnival ride at the fair, I'm not getting on that ride. Yeah. Is Zika cowboy next year? I don't know. I think he would be better with Dak, but I don't. Pollard's better. Zeke looks fat. Is that a shape, baby fat? Yeah, I think Downy can't CUNY is probably eating too many tuck ketos, a lot of what's that green stuff called. Yeah. Too much guac. Yeah. I don't know. I'm a bill over and getting rookie running backs. The problem is Jerry Jones loves that guy. He loves him. He loves him. He's like an adorable, will he walk? We've gone over this before, but he's just too fat. He has too many piercings and I most changed CQL yet. Usually in the yearbook, most changes like, man, you used to look ugly. Now you look like a normal looking person. You went from a normal looking person to just a. I don't know what you are. I don't know what that look is, but you're getting advice from the wrong crowd. And then our drama King of the drama King of the year goes to Josh Jacobs. And he keeps all his thoughts to his own little diary. We're tired of hearing his tantrums. He's throwing out tweets left and right. He's I'm not playing, but I am playing. He's calling out coach Gruden Jacobs. You're a great young player. Don't ruin it with your attitude. Did you agree with that? Or do you think someone else should be drama King of your year? No, I just think it's hilarious. How Josh Jacobs told all you guys and you guys fell for it. I didn't have him on my team, but I just, my heart goes out there to the fantasy. How would you like it if he was on your team, would you believe in if a guy said I'm not playing, I just personally feel like part of your job as a fancy football manager is to manage your team and decipher all that stuff. Okay. You're a business owner and someone calls you the day of your big business meeting and says, Hey, I'm not coming to work today. What do you do? I think that's a, I think it's an unfair comparison. You just called it a job. So you rethink this analogy door and I think honorable mention would be kin Allen. He's another guy that faked everyone out. He trolled you guys again, you fell for it. Yeah, you fell for it too. I do fall for us. You did. What did I say? You said starting. I said start him and worst case scenario, he goes and he's playing in the goal line. What'd he did. He played 30% of snaps. The goal line. You still, I said the two most golden words, every fantasy analyst says and start him. You had hundreds of listeners, people don't say start them. And then. People don't care about worst case scenario, Jordan. I want your hands above the table at all times. And you keep those fingers on cross. We're tired of all your little caveats, all your little qualifiers, but you said started all these though. Yeah. All right. Over teacher of the year, we got David Montgomery running back six on the year. You tell me six weeks ago, this guy's finishing in the top. End top 10. I would have laughed. She out of the room. Yeah, the barriers. They won five in a row to start off the season, middle of the year, not too hot, but then true. Bisky he had a re rejuvenation down in Chicago and they might make the playoffs is Mitchell Trubisky back next year. I hope the bears can't fall for that. Hey, Mike, who else would they get though? They won't have a great draft pick. I don't know if they could trade. They don't have great salads. College football is just so weird this year. I don't know, like drafting guys. It's going to be weirdly interesting. Who, what veteran guys are on the market next year? Fitzpatrick. Let thing, we'll go back. Go back. David Montgomery. This guy might could also, I can make, are you for the most changed on the opposite? Hey, this guy, like the girl version like Josh Jacobs or Zeke was the girl version and Montgomery you're the military. This guy went from being fat and slow. The fur horrible. He just looked horrible. The first 10 weeks, the last six weeks, it was a complete, he looks actually like a good NFL player. He's more explosive. He looks more athletic. He's making guys miss. I don't know what he did between. I don't know what he did. I don't know if he got a girlfriend. I don't know if I don't know what happened. Steroids. Something happened to this guy to change the way he plays. Quito ki, maybe he went cute. Maybe a Jenny Craig. Yeah, I know that's big down in Chicago. Maybe with all those shutdowns in Chicago, you didn't eat as much deep dish. Yeah, he, no, he was awesome. So yeah, I'm given overachiever most, most changed. David Montgomery. He, if you made playoffs with this guy, you probably won, he was on fire electric in the air. Yeah, I think you wonder, I think if you just took like a blind pool from people and said, Hey, give us the top 10 running backs of the year. I don't know if anyone would think David Montgomery would be number six. I talked about this in my DFS article on the site. If you haven't been reading that, go ahead and check that out. But. And draft Kings David Montgomery was in the 5,000 range and no one was playing him five weeks ago. Oh no, no one was, he was 7,700 this week and everyone played him. It just, it's amazing in, in four weeks what's happened. What round? He's a first round draft pick, are you going to bank on taking a bear's running back in the first round? I think if Trubisky is back and start, I think he's just a better player, which you're basically, I think it's very similar to the miles Sanders with Jalen hurts thing, those running quarterbacks. When you had that threat of the read option or the threat of the quarterback taking off, I think it just opens up a little more for the running back, which it sounds weird because the quarterback's taken away. Carrie's in the running back. I think those carries become more efficient because it's better running lanes. So next year, do you think you would like Montgomery with Trubisky butter or Ezekiel Elliot with Dak battery or miles Sanders with her spatter? I think I would go miles Sanders. I can't trust that. I think miles Sanders is a better running back and a better athlete and a better football player than especially Zika at this point. And even Montgomery. Yeah. So do you guys think those walls be late first rounders next? I think they're all late. I don't know about, see, I think it's equal. I think Z could fall in the second or third round next year. And are redheaded stepchild of the year award goes to Carson, wins it. I don't think anybody wants him. Do you think he. Gets reunited with his coach in Indianapolis. I think that's a good possibility. And maybe Frank Reich, I think is his name will. Yeah, maybe the beds. We just talked about the bears. Yeah. There's I think Carson Wentz will be a starter on an NFL team next year. I don't think it's the Eagles though. Okay. Yeah. So Carson Wentz, you got our red headed stepchild of the year award. It was almost Andy Dalton, but he pulled off that big win. So we had to give it to you. So Andy Dollins should get ginger of the year. Yeah. Ginger. Yeah. Andy Dalton, ginger of the year. We're just handing awards out, left right over here. Like Oprah. Yeah. These are not your typical Oscars. These are your fun loving awards. We don't think too highly of them. They're just here for the good times. We don't even think too highly of these players. A lot of times now, speaking of these flares, the next up, come back King. Austin. Eckler this guy had a hamstring torn off the bone for two months. Yeah. That sounds like something I do at Thanksgiving to my plate. Yeah. Yeah. He had a Christmas miracle with that Hemi and he came back in the playoffs pretty soon. Everything echo does is for the fantasy football community. Yes. You get complete opposite. Josh Jacobs, complete offs. Jacob's in the same division. And I would be surprised if Who knows. Maybe some guy's rage dropped him. And you added him on your roster. You guys know anyone who raised her. What about Kittle came back? No one thought that goes to come back. He was like, what? Top? Top eight tight end on this past week. Yeah, it was a Saturday. He was sad. He came back so late in the season. It would've been nice to have some more performances out of him. I, yeah, I didn't see anybody drop KA Eckler rage drop him, but he was a first round pick. He did do some guy's dirty, but he gives it all. He can. Yeah, I think I'd like him better than a Zeke next year. Yeah. That's interesting. That is interesting. It'd be neat to see him play a whole season with Herbert. Our one hit wonder. Wait, we got a one hit wonder. I don't know if Jordan will agree with this, but you did this one. Samuel, what do you take? Yeah, the one hit wonder is can makers. He had a few okay. Performances. And he came off that running game performance versus the Patriots had 24 points. And then after that he was injured and didn't even come back for the fantasy championship. Are we blaming guys now for getting injured? Are we holding that against them now? I'm not blaming. I'm not holding anything. Also. Rams running backs always get hurt though. I've even happened yesterday. I just think if cam makers doesn't get hurt. He's probably a top 12 running back into the jets that one week. And he's probably again this week. So I green acres, I think hat makers was prime to be a championship winner for you. And then what round are you taking cam acres next year? I'd say second or third. Yeah, I think I, I would definitely be interested to see if Malcolm Brown and Daryl Henderson are on the roster next year. If both of them are still on the roster next year, that scares me a little bit. But I do think if one of them has gone, I would feel a lot better about cam makers in the first, our other one hit, wonder, could you say taste him? Hell, maybe he just had a couple of good weeks. Maybe DJ Mark, DJ shark. That, yeah, that was her DJ shark in there. You could throw a there, there's gotta be more guys out there, but Kim acres is definitely the most recent. And then this one, I. Everyone knows what this one is, but best body, like my best, the award goes to DK Metcalf that guy's a beast. He is like a meatloaf on steroids.

Samuel:

It's awesome. I think we all will remember that player where he tastes down that soon to be picked six by Buddha Baker and toggle them from behind. That was an amazing play. The guys, the Mandalorian, he just, he can get it done. I. I don't know. I watched Mandalorian last night, not to spoil it. I cried.

Trent:

It was poetry on a screen. I loved it. I, it, I cry whenever I see DK on the screen. Cause he's so good at catching those deep balls. Unfortunately he wasn't gets the Washington football team, but he had a great, yeah. Yeah. I'm going to blame Russell on this wrestle needs. Like what wrestle needs to roll out. He needs to quit cooking. If he rolls out, he can cook. I don't know what's going on in Seattle. If I had to make a Superbowl pick, Seattle's not in there. I call me crazy. I see the bucks are my super bowl pick right now. Who do you guys have is crazy. All right. You think so? You don't think so.

Jordan:

Brady gets it down and playoffs it's for sure. The chiefs going back to back. I think bill, I think bills are barely winning games. I don't think the chiefs get it done this year, but a website merge idea. Can we get a little fantasy dudes podcast, bumper sticker that says, let Russ cook the DK. Me meatloaf. I like that. I like what you make. You should a copyright that Samuel, I will, if I knew how to do that, I would. So maybe I'll just say I'm copywriting that Google copywriting it right now. You really think chiefs, I, they barely give it to you. Here's the deal with the twins. They're going through the motions. They're just having a good old grand old time out there. Playoffs come, they'll be back focused. And I just, I think they're the most talented team. I think their defense is better than what people think they are. I think that builds chiefs AFC championship is going to be one heck of a game. I actually just have a bet. I put a bet down last night with one of my buddies at the chiefs and the Bill's playing the NC championship, 50 bucks on the cheek. I think any more takers out there, let them know who does the, who? I think our talent, Alan made a strong case last night. Aaron Rogers in Krogers takes it. Yeah, I think Rogers gets it.

Samuel:

Alan. He came onto the scene later in the year. And that hail Murray, I think you can't count it against them, but if he had that win on his resume, Josh, he had one like a rollercoaster freezing. He was, he balled out the first four or five weeks. He sucked for the next four or five weeks though.

Jordan:

And now he's back to bawling again. So I just, the biggest thing with Josh Allen is he going to be consistency consistent? Can he prove that weekend and week out? And he has been. The playoffs. It's a whole different animal though. Yeah. The playoffs last year with Josh Allen were a disaster. They were up 16 over versus the Tech's insane through that crazy behind the back pass. Just as stupid stuff sometimes. Yeah, his decision-making, but I think he's been better at that. Yeah. I liked Josh Allen a lot better than my homes. I'm tired of my home. Seeing him on the screen with his curly hair. Talk about another guy that needs a haircut. Yeah he was, yeah, exactly. Cutest couple Samuel. Who do you got for this? Yeah, we have a few CUDA scalpels this year. I think these are some quarterback wide receiver tandems that were great all year Patrick and the homes and Tyreek Hill, Josh Allen, Stefan Diggs and Aaron Rogers and Davante Adams. You guys are our cutest couples. I might throw Kelsey into that little love triangle with Tyree kill. Yeah, maybe a cutest threesome. Hey, it's not a coincidence that we just talked about. Those three guys for MVP. And we've talked about those three receivers, probably being top three receivers in the league right now. It's there. Those all three of those tandems are extremely fun to watch great chemistry between all those couples. Those are curious couples. And then, you got the one guy at school that everybody gets to, everyone makes fun of them. You don't really know what's going on. Then all of a sudden in the air and you're like, Whoa, this guy is actually pretty cool. I actually will talk to this guy.

Trent:

So our late bloomer of the year we have Jonathan Taylor, this guy came out of nowhere. Did it start out very strong? I think if they would've kept giving him the ball in the second half, the Colts would be going to playoffs. They would have beat the Steelers, but he had what he had. Close to 80 yards and the touchdown the first half.

Jordan:

And then I think he finished with 90 total. Like they, they just quit giving him the ball. I think he only had 12 carries two touchdowns in the first two, two touchdowns. Yeah. So yeah. Yeah, Jonathan Taylor, you were our late bloomer of the year. Yeah. Then Taylor, he, a lot of people were frustrated with them at the beginning of the year, first like eight weeks maybe six weeks. But he came on strong touchdown machine. He tarped the Raiders and I don't know. I just think he really blossomed later in the year. Here's the thing with these rookies is if you get those rookie rang backs, do you really got to hold onto them? Because the season's long and who knows what they'll do? So if you drop those guys, I held on to Jonathan Taylor. He carried me in playoffs. Yeah. You can't drop your rookie Ronnie backs. You have to have patience with them and let them grow. Nurture him. Yeah. Biggest crush Jordan. Who's a player you wish he would have drafted or traded or claimed on waivers this year is James Robinson for me. I think the guy in my league picked him up. We do fab and I think he spent $0 on him. And yeah, I wish I, especially as a Jaguar fan, it kills me that James Robinson wasn't on my team. Yeah. My biggest crush, I think is Dalvin cook and Justin Jefferson, two Vikings. I had the opportunity to claim Jefferson. I didn't, I also have the opportunity to draft cook number one overall, but I went with McCaffrey, I think McCaffrey has to get most injured of the year. Yeah, I think mine is a Davante Adams. I picked Michael Thomas in the first round at seven overall and Devante win at eight. And I don't think, I think biggest grudge of the year is Trent and Michael Thomas. If I saw Michael Thomas, if I saw you in the street, I'd act I didn't even know you like you, I thought you were going to say you'd fight him.

Trent:

Maybe I'm to that point, like I'm about ready to throw the gloves on. Like I just, I don't even care. You'd probably knock me out. But who knows if I just I'm that mad. Don't want that guy on my team ever again. I don't think, yeah. He's fantasy blacklisted for you. He's black. That's worse than the Gulag.

Jordan:

You're blacklisted. And then best fantasy bridesmaid of the year. So this is like your pick that there's always that one girl in everyone's life who she's always a bridesmaid. She's never the mate or she's always the bridesmaid, never the bride. And that's Alvin Kamara. Cause I don't think if you had Alvin Kamara, you were in the championship, he put up a record day on Sunday, but what he do, he got you third place, fifth place. No one really cares. So you are our fantasy bridesmaid of the year. Yeah. Komara. If you had them, you might not have been the championship winner of your league, but he was more of a one night stand player, just one great wild ride, but next day, Next week, he might just have a lousy performance.

Samuel:

So really like a good marriage. I'm not married, but based off what I've seen, you want a nice, healthy relationship week after week. And with Camara, it was just peaks and valleys. Sounds like you're talking from experience there, Samuel pretty experienced in that. Who's your fantasy.

Trent:

Who's your fantasy bridesmaid. They need, they have all these dating sites. These days. They need to have a bridesmaid dating site where it's just bridesmaids and not brides. So hopefully you're not on websites that have brides on them. Just brides may be surprised,

Jordan:

now, Jordan, you have a fancy bridesmaid. No, I'm trying to think. And yeah, I liked the Camaro one. I, the Camaro one, I think. I'd be interested to see what cmera, how they add those percentages of people who were in the championship game will players. Yeah. I'd be curious that percentage on Camaro. Yeah. Kelsey, I think was the most owned guy in championship and championship. That's why I'm wondering, like where do you draft Travis, Kelsey in the draft. So do you think Kelsey's a more of a bridesmaid and not a bride? No he's a groom. You get down on one knee and he's marrying people like, yeah, he's the officiant.

Trent:

Best value pick of the year. You could say James Robinson. I had Stefan digs in the eighth round tonight. I think that's the best pick. Yeah, that was awesome. I think digs takes that trophy home. W do we know what his ADP was on the air? I at 12 man league, I had them in the eighth. I can look real quick.

Jordan:

I think some people dropped, drafted them higher, but I don't think he was any buddies first or second rounder. He. No, he was not first or second. I thought he was probably the fifth, sixth round ADP. Yeah. That's great value. I don't know if anyone thought Josh Allen's chemistry with digs was going to be this great. Yeah, no receiver in Buffalo had really done well. But it's hard. It was hard. I know for me going in with a year with step digs, one, I think step days is just a better football player. He's a better wide receiver than he was last year. I know I heard on the broadcast last night, they talked about how. He said over the off season, he really reflected on himself as a player and a person. I think he's just been a different person this year. I think he's more bought in to a team he's more selfless. He's not as selfish. I think he was very selfish in Minnesota. And so I, and then you had the Buffalo, right? And Josh Allen, he's an inconsistent. So it was, I think, going into the year, there's just a lot of question marks with dig. Yeah, Josh Allen. I think he was the upgrade from Kurt kissing cousins. And I think he really helped us Stefon, Diggs fantasy performance. Yeah. And then we got most likely to be reached on next draft. Is it David Montgomery, maybe? Who do you guys have for this? I don't have David Montgomery. I don't think people are going to reach on him. I feel like people could reach on cam makers. Think people reach on cook. Can you draft cook too early? I don't think it would be a reach with Cooke. I think he's proven. I don't think you'll fall off. The only thing that you might have is an injury or something, but the biggest reaches that are going to come to the wide receiver. So maybe Stefon, Diggs. I don't want to even say like a person, a player in general, but I think it's usually receivers because receivers is a lot more volatile. It's not as bankable. It's hard to bank on things with them. And so I could see that people were, I could also see people reaching out to some of the tight ends, like as good as a year term as Kelsey has. I think people could reach there. I think someone like Darren wall, or they could reach on someone like Hawkinson, they could reach on. I think tied ins and wide receivers, they didn't get to be very careful. I could see my Yeah. I think the end of the season probably has, yeah. It help that it's true. And running quarterbacks. You really, they helped so much. What about you guys? What about those Tampa Bay receivers? What do you think their outlook is for next year? Don't know if people really love, there's just, there's a lot of mouths to feed there and Brady being so old. You don't know? I think this is his last hurrah. Yeah. If you went as a super well, I could see him retiring. Yeah. I biggest reach. I'm trying to think of a running back. That would be a big reach. I don't think James Conner, James Connor probably got reached on this here. I could argue James Robinson, maybe he gets reached on because my logic there is if the Jaguars, the hog Trevor Lawrence is quarterback, which means Trevor Lawrence, I stole the ball. And so he's also a great runner. Yeah. And is James Robinson going to get the volume that he was. The issue I could see. I think he's probably a good second, third round value. I think he's going to be there. He's proved that he's a really good football player, but I could see people taking James Robinson the first round. Yeah. I could see Jonathan Taylor being reached on too. Cause I think it's going to be a committee again. They don't have a what's his name coming back. Cause he was on contract, right? Marlon Mack. Yeah, that guy, he has an injury bug too. But I think that, I think John and Taylor will probably get reached on with how he finished. And I think it's still going to be a committee. Jordan back here Lawrence pig. You liked to talk about greedy quarterbacks a lot. I think Lawrence will be one of those greedy quarterbacks that likes to rush it into the touchdown. I think you're right. Okay. Then our, what do we do? And now we got most likely to be cascaded on star Wars or star Wars. I got Derrick Henry. No, I like that fake. He could be one of those, a job of the hut dungeon keepers with that hair. Yeah, no, I think he could, I think it's Derek Henry or who is that backup quarterback on the Steelers a couple of years ago, the guy with the funky years, the backup Mason Rudolph, not Mason Rudolph Myles Garrett could probably be a star Wars character. He's playing bass and Rudolph this week. I wonder if his helmet comes off. We'll see. That'll be interesting matchup. The Browns need to win. If they want to get into the playoffs. I got even DK Metcalf. I call him the Mandalorian earlier. Yeah. DK. He has that neon hair. Sometimes he looks like. Yoda, you could even say you could even say Zico yet. A lot of people think it looks like an easy walk, but yeah, I think you walks are a lot cuter on than Zika and they don't have piercings. Like I, at this point, I wouldn't be surprised if Zeke has a belly, but yeah, I think he might have piercings on a belly button piercing, Trent. Oh, I don't want to see your Google search dude. That is so weird. You ever seen him? He wears jerseys all up Howard and I don't look, my eyes are always up here, man. They're always up here. Eyes above the belt. I think the belly button is above the belt. Samuel depends for certain guys. I don't know. Yeah. So Derek Henry with the it's just the hair, man. He. He looks like one of those you're right. Jabba the Hutt dungeon keeper, Derek and Risa. Picture him with a spear, some little creepy little Jabil, walkies, whatever they're called walking around on tattooing. Derrick Henry, most likely we cast it on star Wars. All right. Hey guys, this has been our last show of the year. We will be back weekly sometime next week.
