Samuel:

Today on the fantasy dudes podcast, we preview the Thursday night matchup introduced our first sponsor and Tua leaves the country.

Trent:

Welcome to the fantasy football dudes podcast. This is Trent alongside me as Samuel and. Jordan is not here. I guess he has motto. I don't know how he got that during During a pandemic but he is not with us today. So it's just me and Samuel, just like the good old days.

Samuel:

Trent. It's crazy. Your co-hosts are dropping like flies first Randall. And now Jordan, I'm not feeling too great either, but luckily my 75% is other people's 110. So I'm going to give you all. I got the only way you take this podcasting mic away from me is from my dead cold hands.

Trent:

That's what I like to hear. Jordan's not here. A lot of people think he's the serious one. I think he makes us joke around

Samuel:

he might be taking some time off after his great starts and sits last week, honestly.

Trent:

he went to work on those starts and sits.

Samuel:

We don't have paid vacation but with those starts and sits, he deserves it. So hopefully he feels better soon.

Trent:

if he made some money on DFS, maybe he went on vacation.

Samuel:

Yeah. Maybe you like bought a house in Miami and just took off.

Trent:

Yeah. Maybe he moved out of his house we do have our Yeti giveaway going on still. We're going to announce the winners that on December 24th, little Christmas gift for giving you guys. Go ahead and check out our website, www.thefantasyfootballdudes.com still got rushed delivery. You can get that special someone, some sweats. We got a store, send us some dude mail, send us some questions. who should I start? Who should I sit? How do I ask this girl out? Whatever.

Samuel:

Santa loves getting letters. We love getting dude mail hit us up. We want to hear your questions, concerns, comments about the show. We want to hear from you guys and yeah. Go check out our store

Trent:

for the fans will never let you down. I promise. Hey Samuel, a couple weeks ago, you said the Steelers are pretenders and I actually, doubted you, but I think you were right.

Samuel:

Colin coward stole the steak for me. He must listen to the podcast, but the Steelers they've dropped two games in a row. Big. Ben's looking old. They can't run the ball like you thought they were going to, and they can barely pass it either. So it'll be interesting how they fare on this tail end of the season, get going into the playoffs, but Hey, the Ravens are getting hot. That was a great Monday night football game.

Trent:

being about the Steelers, not being able to run or throw, they can't catch either, but the Ravens, that was a great game. Maybe one of the best games of the year, best Monday night football game. I've seen since Monday night football left. Regular TV.

Samuel:

some people thought Lamar Jackson might've caught the runs. I started him. We were trying to decide, who should I start? Tannehill or Lamar Jackson. I went with Lamar Jackson and he had a great night. He got me the dub, but when he was pulled out for cramps or his bathroom break, I was scared to death with trace mix early. I was like, Oh no, my fantasy playoff spot is going to disappear.

Trent:

that was a weird deal cramps.

Samuel:

He's 23. Any cramps up my dad's 50. He goes on to half marathons and barely cramps up. So he better get his training regimen under control. he came back right in time for that fourth down and won the game for him. the Browns have to be hurting. They wanted that game bad.

Trent:

the Browns are for real. They came back from the dead and we'll see what happens in the rest of the year. It will be intresting

Samuel:

Honestly, they just scored too fast,

Trent:

way too fast. But we're going with, do you think Kareem, Hunt's a top 20 start this week,

Samuel:

Kareem hunt. Let's see, they're playing the New York giants. the people were high on the New York giants for a few weeks. but then they just got killed by the Cardinals. They didn't look too hot. I think Kareem hunt and Nick Chubb, they're probably the best fantasy running back duo we have at the moment, I would not be scared to start both of them. And you know what I'll say? Yeah. He probably is top 20 running back this week. Honestly, they use them more as a receiver with all those catches. Kevin's the fancy loves to throw the ball to him. without O'Dell, he's probably one of the better talents they have.

Trent:

Jordan was really the only guy who guys picks right last week. And it's unfortunate. He's sick today with that vacation time. basically I should've only done sits this week, but together we had Herbert Allen and Stafford is our start to the week. And Stafford, he had that injury. He left the game. God, would've got another six points possibly or four, if he wouldn't have got hurt there.

Samuel:

he might not even play this upcoming week.

Trent:

Taylor, did Jordan say to start Jonathan Taylor?

Samuel:

Yeah, he did.

Trent:

He went full ham dog.

Samuel:

He destroyed the Raiders. It was a pitiful performance. They could not catch Jonathan Taylor all day.

Trent:

And then Samuel, you said to start cam Akers. cam Akers versus the pats. He had his breakout game. And guess what? He's playing the jets this week. That's awesome. So back to back games for cam Akers, hopefully you guys picked him up a couple of weeks ago on our waiver show. And then I said, James Conner, I thought the Steelers would get back to December football and run the ball

Samuel:

I don't even know if he suited up in that game. I did not see him out there.

Trent:

I put James Conner and the fantasy Gulag a couple of weeks ago. I should have left him there. I put miles Sanders in the fantasy Gulag this past week.

Samuel:

I was right there with you. He made us look like fools. Jalen hurts made us look like fools, man. I did not expect that, but I guess you have to think when you have a brand new quarterback out there. Heisman talent. He made all of us look like fools. the Eagles have a new life out there in Philadelphia.

Trent:

do you feel comfortable starting Sanders the rest of the year?

Samuel:

why not start him? Jalen hurts had an electric performance, so did miles Sanders teams don't know how to game plan for those guys yet. And so yeah, miles Sanders, he might have new life.

Trent:

let's be honest, if you have mild Sanders, you're lucky if you made it to play off. So after that performance you're playing with him,

Samuel:

that's true. he could be a DFS guy. You never know.

Trent:

We had Robbie Anderson. He had a solid game. Corey Davis did not play good at all. Nope. AJ Brown had a crazy catch in that game.

Samuel:

That was amazing.

Trent:

And then, Antonio Brown just didn't get it done. We thought he'd be in that hot tub. Nope. He probably needs to be in that hot tub to just warm up a little bit. But Scotty Miller got that long touchdown catch, then they just didn't do anything.

Samuel:

Scotty Miller. I thought he was my plumber.

Trent:

He might be. And then, Are a plumbers, make the world go round, shout out to all our plumber listeners. Yeah. Yes. our tight end starts a week. We had Gronk. Dalton Schultz and Jordan Reed was just, he was bad. I was hoping for that revenge game. We did not.

Samuel:

Dolan Schultz, the doll and the Dolan connection didn't happen. He had about 3.9 points, I think. And Gronk, how did our boy Gronk do Gronk?

Trent:

he was solid. he was a top 10 tight end, I'd love to see that was a close game. When he didn't win you at Lee, he didn't win you your game, but he was a good tight in this past week.

Samuel:

Defensive starts and sits. I said, start the saints. That was not good. They actually lost a few points on the week. the Rams versus the Pats, the rams had a great game. I think they, even the rams defense even had a touchdown. Y

Trent:

yeah,

Samuel:

Can't complain about that. And then, Jordan wanted to start the Cardinals and they were electric versus the giants they had, I think around 18 double digit points. I picked them up. I might even start them again against the Eagles, but I don't know if I'm going to get burned by Jalen hurts twice.

Trent:

our sits for wide receivers. Chase Claypool. No one played good in Pittsburgh. Henry rugs. Now he has COVID now he has COVID. So he caught something. And then, Tyler Lockett, he had, what about five point standard? no, he's just not doing good. I think you're done with him the rest of the year.

Samuel:

Yeah. At my draft, my fellow league mates called me out and he was like, Oh, Why don't you do after the actual Seattle number one receiver Tyler Lockett. But I went ahead and picked DK first and guess who's laughing now.

Trent:

it's definitely you, but you laugh a lot, I'm actually really excited. This is prerecorded live on Wednesday. Yup. But you will be listening to this Thursday

Samuel:

hump day.

Trent:

I'm pretty excited for Thursday night football

Samuel:

I am too It's a divisional matchup between the Los Angeles chargers and the Las Vegas Raiders. The losses man. It's a, that's a weird combo of names that used to be San Diego used to be Oakland, but man times have changed. It's a great game. We have Derek Carr versus Justin Herbert. What do you think is going to happen in that game? Trent,

Trent:

we've got an over, under a 53 points and cars thrown for 300 yards plus in the past three games. So let's see if he's all gas, no brakes this week.

Samuel:

Hey, did you see what happened last weekend with Josh Jacobs? They said he was inactive. He posted a story, Instagram story. He said, sorry, fantasy owners. I'm not playing, but he goes out there and it plays like almost every snap. That was very confusing.

Trent:

I saw that. I'm just thinking it out there. I have a set of a week for my running back, but I'm gonna throw Josh Jacobs in there too. Cause I'm just, we'll get to that. But don't tease with us fantasy owners that make the NFL run round on us and tell us we aren't playing. Make a scramble. we're in church and we're thinking about we're trying to worship, and then you do something like that.

Samuel:

you're playing these mind games. That's messed up. I had Nyheim Hines to replace them and one of my leagues. And I think he ended up having a better game than Jacobs, but Jacobs that's all, honestly, that might be fantasy Gulag, worthy

Trent:

I had a baby on Monday or on Sunday.

Samuel:

Congrats.

Trent:

Thanks. Yeah. I forgot to announce that. my wife doesn't know I'm here. Podcasting. Actually I told her I was going to go to the store and buy diapers, but yeah.

Samuel:

good thing. She's still in the hospital under good care.

Trent:

I get this alert while I'm supposed to be taking care of the baby that. Jacob's isn't playing on Sunday I supposed to be taking care of this newborn. Jacob's isn't playing. I'm just, my mind is about to explode

Samuel:

instead of you have to take care of another toddler in Josh Jacobs. Exactly. Fantasy toddler the week Josh Jacobs. Yeah. John Gruen cannot be happy with that. he's all about the business and if you're messing around, you don't like that, but who would you pick to win Thursday night versus chargers and Raiders? Man, this is a tough one. Las Vegas, edges this out just to keep their playoff hopes alive, but Herbert's going to put up points. I'm on the other side of that pick. I want, I think I'm taking the chargers because if you remember the last game, the chargers probably had three or four chances down at the goal line throwing fades, but it ended up not being a catch. And then the Raiders are going psycho. I think the chargers pulled us out. I think Herbert slings the ball all day. I think, Derek Carr, they try and establish the run, but Jacobs doesn't get it going.

Trent:

we are going to get into our starts and sits and we got some new qualifications for starts and sits. When we say a start and sit for quarterback, we're sitting there going to finish in the top 12 for running back. We're saying they're efficient. The top 15 wide receiver, top 20. Tied in top 10, cause any tight end outside the top 10, that's just not even good. We should almost make it top six. Yeah. But so we're gonna get into our starts and sits and today's starting sits is actually brought to you by our first sponsor.

Samuel:

Who was that?

Trent:

Smoke. Farm.

Samuel:

Let's go

Trent:

smoke. Farm is a caterer and they will barbecue deliver. curbside pickup

Samuel:

I have a lot of man meat that I want in my belly, this Christmas. What are some of those meats they have? brisket. Tri-tip chicken, linguist. Homemade from scratch macaroni and cheese, but yeah, smoke farm. Look them up on Instagram. They are ready. They are COVID free and they are here for you thank you to our sponsor smoke farm.

Trent:

All right. So our quarterback starts at a week. Samuel. You want to take us off with your start of the week?

Samuel:

Yeah, we were just talking about it. Thursday night, match up, those Thursday night games. They have a great opportunity for points. Someone's going to go off. There's always a stud that goes off on Thursday nights and I'm going with Herbert. he had an awful performance against the Patriots. Maybe you dropped him. Maybe you got down on him and wanted to put him in your fantasy Gulag. But I like Herbert versus the Raiders. The Raiders are in a spiral. it's the repeat of last year. They had a promising start, but now they're losing. I like Herbert, he threw for 325 yards and two touchdowns when he faced the Raiders last and the Raiders, they've just gotten worse in passing defense, their 25th in the league in passing defense.

Trent:

I really liked the Herbert start. The only thing I'm worried about with this is Mike Williams might not play in Keenan. Alan's a little beat up, but I'm thinking they're going to play, but it's just a short week is the only thing that's worrying me.

Samuel:

I hope they both play. I'm worried about that. Keenan Allen hamstring. but I think he'll be good. It didn't look too serious and I think. Herbert will have great showing on Thursday night,

Trent:

Herbie goes bananas. And then you're sitting Samuel.

Samuel:

to like he had a surprisingly good game versus the chiefs. We thought the dolphins might've pulled out a victory But bill Bellacheck, he knows how to spank those. Rookie quarterbacks. That's why I'm sitting too. we all remember what happened when the charters and their rookie quarterback played, versus new England. That's why I'm sitting bill. that's why I'm sitting too us.

Trent:

Devante Parker might not be playing either. So it's just less weapons and this Kosecki hurt too.

Samuel:

slim pickings down there in Miami.

Trent:

My start of the week, I got Kyler Murray vs. Philadelphia and Murray. He's been playing pretty bad, but they're playing. for playoffs and he's getting healthier every week. I think this has bounced back game versus Philadelphia. They're in a must win. The NFC West is very tight. I know the Eagles are also in a must win cause the NFC East is just so bad that they're still in the playoff hunt, but I think Kyler Murray puts on a show against fellow sooner quarterback. Hopefully he gets his legs involved again, Murray puts up some points this week.

Samuel:

Hopefully the Cardinals can game plan a little better against, Jalen hurts and I do like Kyler Murray. Hopefully can get some rushing yards. Maybe his shoulders healed up a bit and, Deandre Hopkins last week, people were thinking you might not have a great game against the giant Stevens, but he showed out. I think he had close to a hundred yards. I certainly liked that connection with Kyler Murray.

Trent:

home game for Kyler Murray inside the dome. They'll probably have they probably have it closed there. And Arizona, Eagle's defense doesn't scare me too much. I think Murray his shoulders getting better every week. I think he's going to run more and more hopefully.

Samuel:

I liked that, Oklahoma. Quarterback comparison you have, I think Murray is definitely the better natural throwing quarterback versus Jalen Hurts. So I liked that pick.

Trent:

And then my sit of the week, I really don't like this one because again, it's another Oklahoma quarterback and I love Oklahoma quarterbacks, but Baker Mayfield, he's been baking fantasy cakes lately.

Samuel:

It's true.

Trent:

And he's a free agent in a lot of leagues, so you can stream him. But New York giants this week, I think are going to make him make FA bake fantasy cupcakes. So it's been a little bit of a downgrade.

Samuel:

The giant defense they're pretty good Baker. You never know what he's going to do. Coming off of hot performance. They could have a big loss hangover or they could want to prove themselves. But this is interesting. Started to sit.

Trent:

New York giants are fifth best defense against fantasy quarterbacks. but I think you pick up Baker this week and you hold them. He plays the jets next week. The second worst defense against quarterbacks.

Samuel:

that would be a great start in a fantasy championship if you're in the position. Great.

Trent:

And with Nick Chubb and Kareem hunt, they're going to get some play actions involved. So he's, I just don't think he'll finish within the top 12

Samuel:

the Browns can still get the dub versus the giants because we don't know who quarterback will be playing for the giants in New York, but. Probably a lesser performance for Baker.

Trent:

So Samuel, who's your top 15 running back, started the week

Samuel:

You're going to have to keep an eye on the injury report. See, who's healthy. See what's happening, but I really liked the 49ers. Ronnie backs versus Dallas and those running backs are Raheem Moster and Jeff Wilson, where he most, he had an ankle MRI the other day. So we want to see his health coming into that performance. But Jeff Wilson, he could still be on your waiver wire. We didn't have a waiver wire show, but he was going to be one of my pickups. Jeff Wilson and Raheem, most vs to Dallas when they last played without Moster Wilson ran for 112 yards and three touchdowns before he left on third quarter. Isn't that crazy?

Trent:

that's a lot. Who's your sit of the week? My sit of the week

Samuel:

are Peyton barber and McKissick versus Seattle. Seattle's defense is getting healthy. They're rounding in the form. I thought pain Barbara would be able to fill that, Antonio Gibson role, but that's just not the same talent.

Trent:

He is a world talent. He's really good. I have some fantasy teams that are really struggling without him. Hopefully he gets back soon, unless they're throwing a lot. I trust McKissick out of that, but yeah, definitely not playing Peyton barber.

Samuel:

he had a touchdown a couple of weeks ago that saved his fantasy performance. 15 carries for two yards per carry. And that won't cut it. So don't think that running back waiver volume will save your season because it won't

Trent:

well, and then is Alex Smith playing for sure this week?

Samuel:

Yeah, we just saw you didn't practice today here on Wednesday. So if they don't have Alex Smith, he's he resurrected their season, Washington football team fans are thing. They'll make the playoffs, but I don't know if, what's that guy's name? Dwayne Haskins. I don't think Dwayne Haskins has it in him.

Trent:

my start, my running back start of the week. I got David Montgomery first, Minnesota, and he's been on fire lately I think people are finally giving him the credit he deserves,

Samuel:

he had an awesome 80 yard touchdown run in the first quarter, the other day.

Trent:

David Montgomery is averaging 5.8 yards per carry winter bisky is the starter. I really liked the matchup. I hope the volume increases from last week. I hope they don't take their foot off the gas.

Samuel:

That's a great stat. I think with Trubisky as their starter, they have a little warm. Mobile option the Nick Foles. It opens the field for David Montgomery and versus Minnesota, their defense. Hasn't been great. That's going to be a tough divisional matchup. The bears have a slim chance to make the playoffs along with the Viking. So this is going to be a huge game. Hopefully they feed their studs.

Trent:

here's something crazy. I believe I read this right. But Mitchell Trubisky has more wins than Deshaun Watson. Amazing. Yeah. And maybe the bears were right. Drafting them above Watson. just kidding. That's not true at all. the winds it's true, but definitely don't drop. That was a dumb pick.

Samuel:

Yeah. That's a dumb pick. they say wins. Isn't a quarterback stat. That's something nerds say on Twitter, but. I disagree. I think the bears organization, sadly, it's probably ran better than the Texans they have below Brian, running their gm and head coach role before he went off, did his own thing. But it's certainly Sadducee to Sean Watson in Houston, wasting away his career.

Trent:

The Texans are probably the, one of the worst ran organizations in the state of Texas. Yeah. That's true. Most places leave their state to go to Texas. The Texans just, they're not the poster child of Texas. That's for sure. Yeah. I guess the Cowboys aren't much better, in my city, the week I got ZQ Elliott talking about Texas. Yeah. Speaking in the Cowboys and Zeke is usually a must start. I just don't trust him anymore. My two running backs I've said, unfortunately, if you drafted him, you might not have even made playoffs, which I hate to say it.

Samuel:

I wish we would've had this podcast going back when they gave them that huge contract, I wish the Cowboys would have given their big contract. They're big money pot to Dak before they did to Zeke, who knows he could still be healthy. I would have let us eat. Walk. Dell, Andy Dalton is a career killer for Zeke. Zeke is looking washed. He looks like a shell of himself. I have no confidence in him and yeah, you really miss DAC in this situation. You've got to wonder what the Cal base would be in. If they would be in the playoff race, you still healthy

Trent:

Zeke looks like an overweight ewok

Samuel:

That's what I'll look like after all these Christmas cookies and smoke farm meet baby.

Trent:

Oh yeah. So Zeke versus the 49ers. I E last week, Paul Pollard had more yards, more fantasy points in Zeke, and the 49ers are stout against the run. So Zeke supposed to be matchup proof, like I said, and he's number, he's running back 14 on the year and standard. So I just get him out. it's looking really sad. Tony Paula is looking like a better running back than Z he's, total touchdown dependent. And that's not why you drafted a CQL yet. I don't know. If we had the draft tomorrow, would you draft Zeke in the first round?

Samuel:

Not if we have the information we have now, definitely not. He's not worth the first, second or even third round pick at this point. going back to our, our running back starts, we liked the Niners backfield, but we don't like Zeke in that matchup.

Trent:

let's throw this over to our wide receiver. Our top 20 starts a week. Who do you got for your wide receiver? Started the week Samuel.

Samuel:

we mentioned them a few weeks ago on our waiver podcasts and this team has been on a tear recently and I am starting T Y Hilton versus the Texans. He is a Texan killer. They played him just a couple of weeks ago. And you do you know what his stats were? What were they? It was eight of 11 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown in week 13. So I like him to have a very similar performance this week, the Colts rounding in a forum late in the season. They're going to be a tough playoff out. Like we said, I think rivers and Hilton are developing a great connection over there in Indianapolis.

Trent:

I like it. I almost made Phillip rivers my start of the week. If we would have done a waver show this week, I would have pumped him up again and said, start this guy, pick him up and start him. He's throwing the ball around.

Samuel:

Hey, I've a question for you. So we got news that Henry rugs he has COVID he won't be playing. And so do you think a lot more targets will be getting in Nelson Aguilar? That guy burned us a few weeks ago. D, what do you think about that? Start? I think Nelson Aguilar and, what's that other guy's name during wallet? Not wallet, Renfro. I think rim fro and Aguilar. They're going to benefit from that for sure. I like Aguilar. I started last week. Okay. Okay. So you think maybe, Nelson Aguilar, fringe star.

Trent:

Aguilar is a start, I think. And it's not froze a definite fringe start that's desperation, like real desperation homecoming dance is tomorrow and all my cousins already have dates. who am I asking?

Samuel:

Hey, I've done that before. You've got to have a safety pick, And I think we'll make that Jordan started a week. He might be gasping for air on his death bed with us saying that. But Jordan, that's your start of the week?

Trent:

Nelson Aguilar. The Hey, he did so good. He deserves, I actually liked that star of the week, but we've been so high in him lately. It's just never, you never know what the Raiders it's true. So you got T Y Hilton. Who's your sin.

Samuel:

Tyler Lockett. He has not been doing well recently. They're playing the Washington football team Redskins and Hey, say what you will about the Redskins or football team, but their defense is pretty good. Their defense is pretty stout. They have chase young on the defensive line, tearing things up. like I said, at the beginning of the show, DK Metcalf is the number one receiver. They're gonna try and run the ball to a lot more than recent weeks. And so I just don't like the matchup for locking.

Trent:

I made a mistake last week. I feel like he's do I like the sit. I want to argue with you, but I just, we can't act like an old, angry, married couple right now. So I'm just going to agree with you because. For the sake of the listeners.

Samuel:

Yeah. Okay. So that's when starting to, what do you have for starts and sits for ride receiver?

Trent:

The week I got, Brandon, I uke, I, it sounds like a star Wars character, but Deebo Samuel is out with a pulled hammy. And after last week you had his career high in targets, catches and yards. So I think that's going to continue against that horrible Dallas secondary. So pick gate, I, you stardom and expect big things. I think he's a definite top wide receiver.

Samuel:

that's a fantasy stud. He hasn't played a lot of games this season, but when he has he's shown out, I think that's a great start.

Trent:

my sit of the week, I got Terry McLaurin for Seattle. A couple of weeks ago. He is the most consistent receiver in the NFL. He was like a guaranteed 13 points per week. with Dwayne Haskins possibly there. I don't like it, but also the past couple of weeks. He just hasn't been good. And the Seattle Seahawks in the past month have been giving up the third fewest fantasy points to the wide receiver position. So if I have Terry McLaurin in my lineup, I'm looking for like Gabriel Davis, our guardian angel Nelson Aguilar, possibly. Maybe T Y Hilton still out there. Those are just some streamers, maybe Hunter Renfro. That's a desperation pick, Terry is not

Samuel:

scary. This week. Think Nelson and TY are great replacements for Terry this week. Seattle Seahawks defense. They're getting scary this time of the season, Jamal Adams. I think he broke the record for most safety sacks in a season and the season isn't over yet. And so I think tomorrow Adam Silla he'll have a scary carries number.

Trent:

he's definitely a sack on Haskins. still throw we'll pass over a little bit slower guys, but tight in starts the week.

Samuel:

I don't have a star. I have a sit because everyone is saying the stardom people in the fantasy world experts are saying to start Evan Ingram. I do not like him. Colton McCoy might be playing again. Daniel Jones. He had a pulled hamstring and a twisted ankle now. So he's not going to be healthy. We're going to have Colt McCoy. has done the world versus Seahawks couple weeks ago, but I don't think that's going to happen. So I'm sitting at an angle.

Trent:

Hey, if you need some starters there, I like Cole commet is a fill in for the bears. It seems I came and Trubisky are really. Hitting it off lately, but my star of the week for tight end, I have Hunter Henry verse Las Vegas Raiders, possibly no Keenan Allen possibly no Mike Williams. Herbert targets Hunter Henry a lot in Raiders are allowing four catches 52 yards per game to the TE this year. So the volume was definitely going to be there. Feel confident is Henry being a top tight end this week?

Samuel:

You could start anyone against the Raiders and Herbert sure does love his tight ins and I think that's a good matchup, especially if, those wide receivers duds are out.

Trent:

Yeah. And we're still not doing the tight end sits. Cause I just, you had one, but it's. It's just so easy tied in of, as a position is almost a set this year. Yeah. And Samuel, I went to the website. We had an email come in to do get that. We have some fan mail.

Samuel:

Did we? I didn't check my email. I was busy all morning, but what did it say? We have Jill from Monterrey, Gil from Monterrey. Gil. Yeah. Oh, I know Gil

Trent:

Gill wants to know who should I start Gil wants to know who should I start T Y Hilton, Peyton, barber or Nelson Aguilar STD scores, standard scoring

Samuel:

oh, standard scoring. I w out of those three, I'd go with T Y Hilton, Peyton, Barbara. Like we said, he's getting the opportunities, but his, yards per carry is just not great. And he's not getting touchdowns. on the other side of the ball with Nelson Aguilar, I think the Coulter is more consistent than the Raiders. that's my take. What do you think?

Trent:

T Y solid. I like Nelson too, but T wise

Samuel:

he's the Texan killer.

Trent:

Defense starts the week. Samuel, who do you got for your star of the week at defense?

Samuel:

I think there's some great points you made at Defense this week. Number one, I have the brands versus the giants. Like I just said, Daniel Jones has a bad hamstring and a bad ankle this week. So I like the browns, defense hungry after a hard loss to destroy the giants. And another bonus defense start since I didn't give you a tight insert, I'm going with the Titans versus the lions. I don't know if you just saw this Trent, but. Matthew Stafford injured might not be playing, but guess what? Their center he's played. He's had a heck of a season. He has a fractured throat.

Trent:

Ooh. What,

Samuel:

how does that even happen?

Trent:

I don't want to know.

Samuel:

I don't know if he ate like a big corn dog or something, but that's not a good injury. So I liked the tie-ins defense. there evens. Hasn't been strong all season, but with these injuries, I think they're going to want to prove a point.

Trent:

you're right with no Stafford. Who's the backup there now. It's chase Daniel. Chase Daniels.

Samuel:

there'll be chasing points, but sadly, I don't think they will have any, and you don't want just little fun fact on my team. I was going to start last week. I started the Saints vs Philadelphia, and I picked up the Cardinal's defense cause they'd be facing Jalen Hurts again. And I think, I thought it'd be a train wreck of an offense. But I've slowly, they burned me. So I'm picking up the Titans defense and they're probably still available on your waiver.

Trent:

That's true My defensive start of the week. I got Patriots. Verse dolphins, Belicheck just pays great against rookie quarterbacks. Aye. Two is great. I like the POI pounder, no Devante Parker. Patriot's defense. They probably are on your waiver wire. Pick them up plan. This is the dolphins chance to push, put the Patriots out of playoffs this year that hasn't happened in awhile. I don't think they get it done. I still don't think the Patriots make playoffs, but I don't think the dolphins are the ones in there.

Samuel:

interesting pick to his first time, leaving the country, going across the sea to new England. I like that pig. I also think the Patriots might even wait, you know what?

Trent:

new England's in America,

Samuel:

I must've missed that in history class. anyway, I think the dolphins could be a good start to you. They've had double digits panacea points for three weeks in a row. They looked great against Patrick in the homes. So I think, Hey cam Newton, he isn't looking that strong this season. So maybe start both those differences. It could be a slow ground and pound game

Trent:

Before we wrap this up. Samuel episode of the week, chiefs at saints, I think saints bounce back. This is Gutsy Patsy. My homes is three and O, and domes, but the saints quarterback is playing for his job. It's a Hill tastes him, knows that's worth dying on. I think the saints bounce back and upset the chiefs. Tasome Hill versus

Samuel:

the chiefs. That'll be interesting. You gotta wonder what andy Reed will drop to stop taste some Hill on the saints offense. I wish they could flex that saints chiefs.

Trent:

what planet are we living on? That the Browns are just prime time TV all the time.

Samuel:

honestly, it's sad. We saw him on primetime last week. America, give us what we deserve. NBC the suits up there in New York. Give us while you want. We want the saints and chiefs Sunday night, we can start, A petition or something. got to save her these last few weeks, a fantasy football. It's been a long season. if you think back to the summer, we didn't even know if we were going to have football. So I'm glad we made it this far.

Trent:

Exactly. just keep the course guys we're here. It's the playoffs.

Samuel:

if you're one of those last four, two spots, got it for the championship. Cherish. It may the Lord. Bless you. Yeah. And Hey, this is.

Trent:

You never know when you're going to get back.

Samuel:

This is when champions are made.

Trent:

We might not even super bowl this year, but as of right now, it looks like we're going to get a fantasy Superbowl. And hopefully it's all in one.

Samuel:

That's all that matters. And Hey, if you're still in the constellation bracket, don't be one of those bombs. One of those losers that drops the stud drops a great player to help your buddy out or screw someone else over have some fantasy integrity

Trent:
