A random Jonnu Smith stat (2:04) seems like the perfect place to start today's show! And we've got news and notes (6:00) before we get into the TE tiers (10:00) starting with some general questions and then the elite tier of Travis Kelce and George Kittle and when they really should be drafted. And does Kelce need to be better than he was in 2019 to justify his ADP? ... Moving on to the near-elite tier (24:48) which consists of only two TEs and then a bigger tier called "They Might Be Elite" (26:46). This tier is bigger for Dave than it is for Heath and Ben. Find out who thinks Rob Gronkowski and Tyler Higbee belong here ... Two more tiers to get to (36:18). We discuss guys like Hayden Hurst, Noah Fant and Austin Hooper plus late-round guys with upside ...

We've got a lot of NFL news (1:30) as a few key defensive players have signed megadeals, Odell Beckham at least entertained the idea of sitting out this season, PHI signed a familiar lineman and WAS lost a potential starting WR. Then it's on to WR tiers (10:50) starting with the elite guys. Is DeAndre Hopkins in this group? ... On to the second tier (16:14) which includes a Rams WR (guess which one!) and an emerging Kenny Golladay. Then we jump to the next two tiers (23:30) which really might be one gigantic tier. How do we separate guys like Calvin Ridley, Tyler Lockett, Beckham, Robert Woods, Allen Robinson and more? ... Many more WRs to discuss including possibly the last tier that presents elite upside (30:00). And we've got the #3 WRs (38:05) and plenty more plus a thorough discussion about the Cardinals offense to end the show ...

Horrible take re:LBell. It was crystal clear he wasn't playing. "He said he was going to." ? Who cares? There was zero upside to him playing and zero reason for him to play. if you drafted him, YOU screwed up. He's not the biggest bust by any stretch. Also, he still had big trade value well into the season. Sour grapes for being a sucker. lol

I think David Montgomery's usage sucked for all the hype. He spent the majority of time ob my bench.

Regulators!! I don't know how to email directly but I need some serious regulators!! I entered a 10 team first year family, friend, girlfriends league. $50 buy in online draft, pot of $500. No payouts were spoken of before the league. Playoffs start week 15, prior to week 14 commish posted payouts of $450 pot, 1st place $225, 2nd place $150, 3rd place $50, 4th place $25. Conteoversey and conversation occured about the commissioner playing for free and pocketing a $50 commissioner fee. Is a commissioner fee abosultute garbage, trash, steaming and a bunch of crap? ( I could send 4 pictures of conversation that the commish has no intent of paying out a $500 pot).

Can you guys do a mock draft for a 10 team PPR? What position in the draft do you think is best? Since there are only 3 elite TEs, should we try to target them first?
