Welcome back to Truth Serum Football’s Round Table discussion! Let’s get right to it with a few questions for David from Genesis Sports Cards and Truth Serum Football, Brandon Waloff and co owners of Truth Serum Football, the honorable Judge Jordan and the man who started all of this Joey Fickle!
Q1. What is your upset of the week?
David: I'm not sure there are any huge upsets this week. I do have the Steelers, Rams, Vikings and Packers all winning against the very small spreads.
Jordan: Titans over Jags
Joey: With or without Justin Jefferson, Josh Dobbs and the Minnesota Vikings will travel to Denver and take care of business. Dobbs keeps finding ways to win, and Courtland Sutton keeps finding himself in the endzone. Only one of those continue... It's Dobbs to the moon.
Brandon: GB over LAC. Just a hunch. LA has been inconsistent and traveling to Lambeau after a shootout loss to Detroit will be costly.
Q2. Who is your favorite to win defensive player of the year?
David: TJ Watt baby! The man is a beast.
Jordan: Best defensive player in the world. Myles "better than Watt" Garrett.
Joey: DPOY always goes to the most disruptive player. That player is Myles Garrett, but if I had to choose a dark horse, I'd pick Aidan Hutchinson.
Brandon: Myles Garrett.
Q3. Start, bench, cut for the rest of the season, PPR. Chuba Hubbard, Jaylen Warren, Kareem Hunt.
David: Start Warren, Bench Chuba, Cut Hunt. Warren has been electric and the Steelers run game has come alive. Chuba isn't being pushed much by Miles Sanders so he comes in ahead of Hunt who has to deal with Ford stealing touches.
Jordan: Start Warren, bench Hunt, cut Chuba.
Joey: Start Jaylen Warren (talent)
Bench Kareem Hunt (opportunities)
Cut Chuba Hubbard (Panthers suck and I want no part of that team)
Brandon: Start. Hunt - with Watson out, either DYR or Flacco will be utilizing Hunt in the Passing game even more!
Q4. Predict the final standings in the mighty AFC North.
David: Steelers, Ravens, Browns, Bengals. Bengals I would have had as 2nd if they won last night and 3rd if they lost but still had Burrow.
Jordan: Ravens, Bengals, Browns, Steelers
Joey: Ravens (Division winner)
Steelers (Wild Card)
Browns (miss playoffs)
Bengals (miss playoffs)
Brandon: With both Watson and Burrow going down for the year, I think Cleveland stands to avoid a dip and should finish 2nd. Things won't be so fortunate for Cincinnati.
Q5. Trade deadline in most fantasy leagues is this week, if they use one. Who's your favorite buy low target who can help win your chip?
David: I'm gonna say Aaron Jones or Christian Watson. With one of the easiest remaining schedules I expect these TD machines to start scoring. Honorable mention to any of the 1st round talents in Atlanta, if Arthur Smith starts using them, they have a cake schedule moving forward.
Jordan: Hollywood Brown
Joey: Hopefully, you haven't missed your window to get Bijan on your squad. Your last chance to get him is the bye week excuse. Arthur Smith has seen the light and the Falcons see the Panthers, Colts, and Bears During the fantasy playoffs. It doesn't get much better than that.
Brandon: Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore (if they bring in Flacco) at WR. Zach Charbonet and David Montgomery if you can!
