    What is it like to tackle a fast 250 pound running back in the open field? No one knows because they can't:

    2018 Titans Report Dynasty League

    Notes from around the league: "3 rec, 38 yards on opening drive. 2 3rd down conversions i think. hes looking good. " -Spinner Loclear III- "Could be a league winner. Word out of camp from all the beat writers has been that Trubisky loves throwing to the tight ends (Burton specifically). Nagy is basically going to use him as a slot WR and w/ Arob and Gabriel taking a lot of attention he should eat. " - John Madden- "Trey-Kelce and Ertz WHO??-Burton" - Roman Polanski-

    Chris Warren III

    Oakland Raiders rookie running back Chris Warren III scored his first touchdown as an NFL player in Saturday’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams. On the Raiders’ second drive of the third quarter, the former Texas Longhorns standout gashed the Rams for 41 yards on six carries and capped it off by punching one into the end zone from three yards out, as shown in the video above. The 6-foot-2, 246-pounder finished the day with 110 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries, but the Raiders were unable to mount a comeback, falling 19-15 to the Rams. Warren’s big day comes just one week after he showed out in his preseason debut, rushing for 86 yards on 13 carries to help the Raiders beat the Detroit Lions by a score of 16-10. Through two preseason games, the rookie has racked up 196 yards and one score while averaging an impressive 6.3 yards per carry. A former four-star recruit out of Rockwall, Texas, Warren was ranked as the nation’s No. 80 overall prospect and No. 9 running back in the class of 2015, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was also the No. 13 overall player in the Lone Star State. In three seasons at Texas, he rushed for 1,150 yards and 13 touchdowns on 204 carries and hauled in 23 catches for 242 yards and two scores. After declaring early for the 2018 NFL Draft, Warren went undrafted before signing with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent. And now he's making a strong case for a spot on the 53-man roster.

    Chris Warren III

    86 yards in first preseason game and 116 today. 6'2 250 lb running back. Raiders running back coach said he has been playing that well all camp and it is not surprising he is doing it in games. Some think he will got to practice squad, but Doug Martin and Lynch are nothing of note now so it seems he could emerge as the feature back. Yes, son of that Chris Warren.
  9. Trey-all he does is scored TDs and catch a bunch of passes-Burton scored again.
  10. Royce-all he does is score TDs-Freeman scored another TD
  11. Might try him out for QB, wouldn't hurt.
  12. Will Marioat throw over or under 3K yards this season?
  13. He provided the investigators examining whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice a clear view of the president’s most intimate moments with his lawyer. Among them were Mr. Trump’s comments and actions during the firing of the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, and Mr. Trump’s obsession with putting a loyalist in charge of the inquiry, including his repeated urging of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to claim oversight of it. Mr. McGahn was also centrally involved in Mr. Trump’s attempts to fire the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, which investigators might not have discovered without him. “A prosecutor would kill for that,” said Solomon L. Wisenberg, a deputy independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, which did not have the same level of cooperation from President Bill Clinton’s lawyers. “Oh my God, it would have been phenomenally helpful to us. It would have been like having the keys to the kingdom.” Last fall, Mr. Mueller’s office asked to interview Mr. McGahn. To the surprise of the White House Counsel’s Office, Mr. Trump and his lawyers signaled that they had no objection, without knowing the extent of what Mr. McGahn was going to tell investigators. Mr. McGahn was stunned, as was Mr. Burck, whom he had recently hired out of concern that he needed help to stay out of legal jeopardy, according to people close to Mr. McGahn. Mr. Burck has explained to others that he told White House advisers that they did not appreciate the president’s legal exposure and that it was “insane” that Mr. Trump did not fight a McGahn interview in court. Inside the counsel’s office, lawyers feared that on the recommendation of Mr. Dowd and Mr. Cobb, the White House was handing Mr. Mueller detailed instructions to take down the president and setting a troubling precedent for future administrations by giving up executive privilege.
  14. White House counsel Donald McGahn “has cooperated extensively in the special counsel investigation, sharing detailed accounts about the episodes at the heart of the inquiry into whether President Trump obstructed justice, including some that investigators would not have learned of otherwise,” the New York Times reports. “In at least three voluntary interviews with investigators that totaled 30 hours over the past nine months, Mr. McGahn described the president’s furor toward the Russia investigation and the ways in which he urged Mr. McGahn to respond to it.” “For a lawyer to share so much with investigators scrutinizing his client is unusual. Lawyers are rarely so open with investigators, not only because they are advocating on behalf of their clients but also because their conversations with clients are potentially shielded by attorney-client privilege, and in the case of presidents, executive privilege.” Also interesting: “Mr. McGahn and his lawyer, William Burck, could not understand why Mr. Trump was so willing to allow Mr. McGahn to speak freely to the special counsel and feared Mr. Trump was setting up Mr. McGahn to take the blame for any possible illegal acts of obstruction.” https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/18/us/politics/don-mcgahn-mueller-investigation.html
  15. Would you make the trade if the Raiders are willing to up an offer with picks?
