On today's show, we are joined by Jamey Eisenberg from CBS Sports as we share our favorite pickups heading into Week 7. Is Benny Snell (7:07) a much better pickup than people may realize and can Jakobi Meyers (20:27) become a viable long-term fantasy option? Is O.J. Howard (40:14) droppable and is it time to sell DeAndre Hopkins (56:45)?
We bring you our immediate thoughts on Sunday's NFL action and how it alters the fantasy football landscape moving forward. Is it time to sell-high on Stefon Diggs (2:02) and how concerned should Sony Michel (16:35) owners be? Should we expect more production from Travis Kelce (30:17) in the near future and has Robby Anderson's (57:01) buy-low window shut?
Our guys have got the scoop on which players you can use to help you win money in DFS this week. Is Alvin Kamara (9:58) the top RB option and will Cooper Kupp (19:54) maintain his must-play status against the 49ers? Who is the better cash game QB between Kyler Murray and Matt Ryan (37:53) and will people be sleeping on Tyreek Hill (47:41) in GPPs if he returns this week?
Today, Joe Pisapia, author of the best-selling Fantasy Black Book series, joins the show to discuss who you would be wise to start and sit in Week 6. Should fantasy owners have any reservations about starting Melvin Gordon (9:39) and is Jordan Howard (21:05) poised to lead Philly's backfield moving forward? Can Marquez Valdes-Scantling bounce back this week (34:38) and what happened to Baker Mayfield (52:50)?
Jake Ciely from The Athletic is on the show today as we go through our top waiver wire pickups heading into Week 6. Does Gus Edwards (6:59) have viable streamer value against Cincinnati and is Jakobi Meyers (20:16) worth gambling on facing a poor Giants pass defense? What can we expect from Chris Herndon (32:53) upon his return if Sam Darnold is healthy, should fantasy owners be concerned about Robert Woods (36:34), and is it time to give up on Stefon Diggs (48:18)?
On today's show, we give you our instant thoughts on Sunday's NFL action. How does Will Fuller's (1:14) big game impact his rest of season outlook and is Chris Carson (15:20) still in danger of losing the starting RB gig in Seattle? Have we overrated Lamar Jackson (30:59) recently, has Stefon Diggs (58:11) fallen to WR3 status, and was Aaron Jones' (1:04:02) huge performance something we should've expected?
Joe Holka, co-host for The Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, joins the show to talk with us about this week's top DFS plays. Is Christian McCaffrey (4:21) the top cash game play regardless of the tough matchup and who is the better value play between Auden Tate and KeeSean Johnson (26:19)? How good of a cash game option is Larry Fitzgerald (30:49) this week and does Robby Anderson (57:31) have the upside and low ownership to make him a viable GPP play?
Jeff Erickson, Rotowire's Senior Editor, is on with us as we examine our favorite starts and sits of the week. Which Denver RB (6:24) is the better play this week and is Courtland Sutton (22:50) a viable high-floor start against the Chargers? Tags and Bobby disagree on Jacoby Brissett's (33:25) potential as a streamer versus Kansas City and the Saints' defense (46:34) could have a huge ceiling against Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers.
We are joined today by Joe Dolan, co-host of the Fantasy Feast Podcast, to chat about which players fantasy owners would be wise to scoop up off the waiver wire. Can Ronald Jones (6:01) seize Tampa Bay's backfield and what is Ryquell Armstead's value (14:45) after Leonard Fournette's big game? Is Mohamed Sanu (29:10) consistently underrated, who is the better streamer between Andy Dalton and Kirk Cousins (38:36), and is it time for fantasy owners to buy Austin Ekeler (1:01:52)?
We're back with our immediate thoughts on the crazy NFL action we just witnessed this past Sunday. Has Jameis Winston (1:14) become a must-start weekly option after his huge game, should Odell Beckham's (16:31) owners be concerned, and was Patrick Mahomes' (28:54) "underwhelming" performance overdue? How will the Chargers' backfield (39:08) shake out moving forward and what is hurting Adam Thielen's (59:56) fantasy value?
Jared Smola from DraftSharks has returned to chat with us about this week's top DFS plays. Before getting into the meat of the show, the guys examine Melvin Gordon's (1:27) rest of season value. Is Tyler Lockett (19:40) this week's best value at WR, can T.J. Hockenson (34:02) produce in a possible shootout with the Chiefs, and will Josh Jacobs (51:53) get a lot more work against Indianapolis?
The guys immediately discuss what Melvin Gordon's return to the Bolts would mean for both his and Austin Ekeler's (2:18) value moving forward before breaking down their favorite starts and sits for Week 4. Justin Jackson (8:47) carries plenty of upside against Miami and Marvin Jones (25:27) could blow up in a shootout against Kansas City. Can Gerald Everett (40:02) be used as a viable streamer and will Aaron Rodgers (42:21) finally deliver a strong performance this week?
On today's show, we discuss our favorite waiver wire targets heading into Week 4 with Paul Charchian of Fanball. What kind of production can we expect from Wayne Gallman (4:25) while Saquon Barkley is out and is it time for fantasy owners to start paying attention to Phillip Dorsett (27:58)? Has D.J. Chark (31:29) become Jacksonville's top WR and does Daniel Jones (45:10) have viable long-term fantasy potential? The show ends with our top trade candidates of the week (51:57).
We've returned to bring you our thoughts on what happened during Week 3's Sunday action. Are more big performances in store for Adam Thielen (1:25) and should fantasy owners be concerned about Aaron Jones' (22:08) limited usage? Does Miles Sanders (44:02) have more to prove after his 100-yard performance, what is known about Saquon Barkley's (50:32) injury, and is it time for Mike Evans' (52:15) owners to cash in?
The guys are back to talk about their favorite options for Week 3's main DFS slate with friend of the show, Davis Mattek, from Swolecast. Is Christian McCaffrey (3:03) the top RB play in cash games over Ezekiel Elliott (4:22) and is there a Carolina Panther wideout (19:59) who is worth using if Kyle Allen is under center? Will Kyler Murray's (31:38) high passing volume finally lead to a breakout week and can T.J. Hockenson (45:22) repeat his Week 1 performance against the Eagles?
Pat Fitzmaurice, host of the Fitz on Fantasy podcast, returns to chat with the guys about their top starts and sits of the week. Will Tony Pollard (5:04) get enough work to have flex appeal against Miami and does Jaylen Samuels (26:20) have a prime opportunity to gain a bigger piece of Pittsburgh's backfield pie? Who is the better start between Geronimo Allison (34:53) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (36:45) and is Josh Allen (55:58) a solid QB1 versus the Bengals?
We're back after another week of Sunday NFL action to give you the top waiver pickups heading into Week 3, and we've got one of the fantasy community's most loved personalities, Scott Fish, along for the ride with us today. Is Frank Gore (9:02) seriously a top waiver target as a spot-start option, who is the better pickup between Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson (23:26), and is Will Dissly the top TE add over Chris Herndon (42:54)?
Another week is just about in the books and a few developments took place including Ben Roethlisberger getting hurt (8:58) and Lamar Jackson showing up on the stat sheet again (25:10). Two of the biggest losers of the week are Donte Moncrief (7:57) and Dante Pettis (11:53). We dive into our panic meter and Cam Newton's play is setting off a deafening alarm (15:31). What should owners be thinking with O.J. Howard (21:56)? What does Antonio Brown's first game as a Patriot tell us (57:27)?
We are joined today by Chris Raybon of the Action Network as we shine light on our favorite DFS plays in cash games and GPPs. Josh Jacobs' (6:54) high volume and low price is hard to turn away from on DraftKings and Matt Breida (16:11) is a great value on FanDuel with Tevin Coleman out. Is Sammy Watkins (29:55) a must-play cash game option, can you get away with playing each of the Rams' top-three WRs (36:43), and is Darren Waller (46:08) bound to have a bunch of catches this week?
Liz Loza from Yahoo! Sports joins the fun today as we break down our top starts and sits entering Week 2. The trio goes over the latest news with Antonio Brown (4:01) and discuss how his value compares to that of Sammy Watkins (5:08) at this point. Ronald Jones (20:30) appears to be the frontrunner in Tampa's backfield, Marquez Valdes-Scantling's (44:46) versatility and athleticism could help him maintain his fantasy viability, and T.J. Hockenson (1:00:02) looks like he's the real deal.
The guys are back to give you the scoop on which players fantasy owners should flock to on the waiver wire with the first Sunday of NFL action in the books! Adrian Peterson (13:51) suddenly has value once again with Derrius Guice back on the shelf and Malcolm Brown (17:13) appears to have a bigger role than any of us would have thought. Also, should fantasy owners put any stock in Marquise Brown's (30:03) big game and are we looking at a breakout year for John Ross (31:46) thanks to Zac Taylor's offense?
Football has returned, and so have we to give you our instant thoughts on what we witnessed during Week 1's Sunday NFL action! Is elite production from Sammy Watkins (4:17) what we can expect every week Tyreek Hill (2:47) is out and has Miles Sanders (12:14) shown that he's the lead man in Philadelphia's backfield? DeSean Jackson (37:47) stars in a revenge game against Washington and Austin Ekeler (53:21) proved he's the back to trust in Melvin Gordon's absence.
We're back to give you the lowdown on the best DFS plays every week during the season! Is Joe Mixon (12:30) a GPP target in head coach Zac Taylor's offense and is the risk surrounding Austin Ekeler's (20:24) workload worth taking on in cash games? How safe of a play is Jameis Winston (40:14) and should you gamble on the Jaguars' talented defense (52:16) against the Chiefs in GPPs? At the end of the show, the guys share their stacks and locks of the week (1:05:25).
Football is almost here! We are joined by Sigmund Bloom from Footballguys to shed light on which players you should consider starting and sitting during the first week of NFL action! Should you cut Tony Pollard (3:12) now that Ezekiel Elliott is back and how much work can we expect Elliott (5:33) to see this week? Is Miles Sanders (15:53) set to break out in Week 1, has John Brown (30:17) been heavily undervalued so far, and is Mitch Trubisky (54:37) a viable streamer against Green Bay's improved defense?
Pat Mayo of DraftKings joins us on the show to break down Week 1's top sleeper options at each position. Chase Edmonds could find himself the beneficiary of the Air Raid offense (5:49) and Matt Breida is no slouch which he proved last season (10:29). We move onto the WRs starting with Ted Ginn Jr. (25:16). Pat explains why he's a big fan of Dede Westbrook (35:04). Jimmy G could be forced to keep up with Tampa's offense (43:58) & Austin Ekeler kicks off our list of players to target in early trades (51:03).
David Hess and Tom Federico from TeamRankings are back with us to share their thoughts on the best ways to approach survivor (3:24) and pick 'em contests (28:18). How do survivor players utilize expected value (8:07), what are the biggest busted survivor pool myths (21:47), and which team makes a great contrarian selection for Week 1 pick 'em pools (32:20)? Later on, the guys get to their AFC (35:35) and NFC (39:17) predictions and break down a couple big Week 1 matchups (41:19).
We're with Marcas Grant from NFL Media as we break down our top waiver wire stashes. How has the fantasy outlook of the Texans' skill position players changed after this weekend's acquisitions (3:37)? What does LeSean McCoy signing with Kansas City mean for the Chiefs' (10:48) and Bills' RBs (20:42)? Will Ty Montgomery (37:55) have a role in the Jets' backfield, is there a chance Jimmy Garoppolo (45:22) loses his job this season, and who is Seattle's second-best receiver (50:01)?
On today's episode, Andy Holloway from The Fantasy Footballers joins us as we give you guys critical draft tips to help you dominate your last-minute drafts. The show kicks off with the latest on the Ezekiel Elliott (3:20) and Melvin Gordon (6:23) holdout situations. Later on, we discuss many helpful topics that will aid you as you draft, like when you should grab your RB3 and RB4 (23:56), how the Bucs' backfield may shake out (30:46), and what the best and worst draft slots are (47:12).
Justin Boone from theScore is with us today as we give our insight on which players we are trying to get in every draft. Are we heavily undervaluing Tre'Quan Smith (2:41) and does O.J. Howard (25:13) have upside to finish as the TE1? Is Melvin Gordon (38:50) getting ready to play and is a breakout year in store for Dede Westbrook (56:48)?
Jim Sannes of numberFire took time to join the show and we're focusing in on a few key names that haven't been mentioned all that much this year. Kenyan Drake (3:25) and Kenny Stills (4:07) have been in the headlines recently. Should we buy into the report that Melvin Gordon's back in Week 1 (5:08)? We're naming our top three breakouts beginning with a pair of Packers receivers (12:26). Kirk Cousins has a golden opportunity (29:40) and Royce Freeman could bounce back from his rookie campaign (42:02).
The crew is reunited with BettingPros Podcast host, Dan Harris, and together the trio shares their top preseason takeaways. The guys engage in a couple heated debates on Tony Pollard's (3:37) value if Ezekiel Elliott misses games and Derrius Guice's (16:18) upside if he takes over Washington's starting RB job soon. Also, is Dede Westbrook (26:48) primed to excel as Nick Foles' top receiver? We finish out the show with a fun round of Fantasy Fill in the Blank (48:00).
We kick off the show by breaking down the biggest news from the football weekend, including the fallout from Lamar Miller's (2:12) serious injury and Andrew Luck's (7:01) shocking retirement. Michael Fabiano joins the gang in the show's second half to examine which players offer league-winning upside (28:13). Does Odell Beckham (33:04) have more upside than any other receiver and is Melvin Gordon's (48:35) elite production worth taking a gamble on in the third or fourth round?
We analyze which players have moved up or down our rankings the most throughout the preseason with Dalton Del Don from Yahoo! Sports. Is Nick Chubb (10:06) deserving of the first overall pick in drafts and does Kerryon Johnson (26:51) have less upside than most people think? Are drafters undervaluing Sammy Watkins (38:16) and is Lamar Jackson (53:14) actually being underrated as a passer?
Friend of the show and author of the best-selling Fantasy Black Book series, Joe Pisapia, helps us break down which guys you should target late in drafts. Darwin Thompson (9:30) has noteworthy value as Damien Williams' handcuff, but are Mecole Hardman (24:38) and Mike Davis (33:07) truly worth late-round selections and does Adam Humphries (48:04) have any viability in Tennessee? The trio then names defenses (49:34) and kickers (55:00) that can have a positive impact for your squad.
On today's show, the guys team up with Adam Rank from NFL Network and shine some light on their top draft targets in every round. Why might it be wise to grab Travis Kelce (9:04) late in the first round and can Joe Mixon (17:32) defy the odds to finish the season as a high-end RB1? David Montgomery (31:00) could be primed for a big year in an improving Bears offense, especially if Mitch Trubisky (58:06) can play up to his potential and have a breakout season.
NFL Next Gen Stats analyst, James Koh, comes on with us to chat about which RBs and QBs he is avoiding at their ADP. Then later, we shed light on the WRs and TEs you will regret taking with our next guest, Jared Smola from DraftSharks. The first overall pick might be too high for Saquon Barkley (3:59) and Miles Sanders (19:24) may struggle to return value at his draft cost. We also question why Julian Edelman's (33:07) ADP is so high and discuss Calvin Ridley's (46:59) potential lack of volume in 2019.
We break down the top sleepers in fantasy football with one of the most respected analysts across the fantasy industry, Scott Pianowski of Yahoo! Sports, and kick off the show with the latest news on Antonio Brown (4:09). Geoff Swaim (30:41) could emerge as Nick Foles' go-to guy and Justice Hill's (44:42) talent might be too tantalizing for the Ravens to underutilize him. Josh Gordon (47:53) is certainly not a sleeper, but can we trust him now that he's been reinstated?
One of the fantasy community's most fun personalities, Brad Evans of Yahoo! Sports, joins the fray today as we get crazy with some wild bold predictions! Is Patrick Mahomes (2:52) due for some big time touchdown regression, how likely is it for Todd Gurley (15:36) to become a total bust, and does Aaron Rodgers (34:12) have a career year now that Mike McCarthy is gone? We finish the show by naming players who could be the next Phillip Lindsay (54:48), like Brian Hill (55:07) and Malcolm Brown (57:39).
Christopher Harris of Harris Football competes against Bobby and Tags in another fun and exciting mock draft! Aaron Jones (11:49) is the definition of a high-risk/high-reward pick, Corey Davis' (19:07) biggest roadblock is Marcus Mariota, and Nyheim Hines (36:57) may be more impressive as a receiver than you may think. Listen until the end to find out who won the draft!
Friend of the show, Jake Ciely of The Athletic, returns to discuss which players present the most value in the middle rounds. Is Andrew Luck (3:45) worth taking a chance on in light of his injury concerns and is Sterling Shepard (35:21) locked into a top-30 finish? As the show comes to a close, we bring you another exciting installment of Fantasy Feud (45:44)! Will Tags' winning streak come to a halt, or will Bobby be forced to read another poem at the end? Listen all the way through to find out!
Today our guys talk with Jeff Ratcliffe from Pro Football Focus about which players he is much higher and lower on than the Expert Consensus Rankings. Should fantasy owners expect David Montgomery (11:29) to produce better numbers than Jordan Howard did with Chicago last year, does the fantasy community undervalue Alshon Jeffery (27:03), and how concerned should you be about Julian Edelman's (36:39) age? The show ends in a discussion on which rookies we're watching and who we're staying away from (48:09).
We are joined by Matt Waldman of Footballguys and together we each share our top busts for the upcoming season. Can Russell Wilson (20:36) maintain his high efficiency from last year and who has the higher bust potential between Jordan Howard (29:12) and Miles Sanders (30:36)? To close out the show, we read your questions about which players are most likely to be frustrating top-24 performers (53:52) and this year's Nick Chubb (58:06), among several others.
Adam Aizer, podcast host for the Fantasy Football Today Podcast, competes against Bobby and Tags in our first mock draft of the NFL preseason! The guys quickly go over Keke Coutee's (2:37) injury before we start the draft. The fun begins (15:06) with Bobby nabbing Alvin Kamara with the fourth pick. Should fantasy owners have any concerns about Mike Evans (19:03), are people underrating Jared Goff (40:42), and what kind of role would Justice Hill (49:23) have if Mark Ingram got hurt?
J.J. Zachariason, host of The Late-Round Podcast, is on the show with us today to go over our running back rankings and tiers. How does Duke Johnson's (11:03) arrival in Houston affect his value, what is Damien Williams' (29:05) floor, and can Miles Sanders (51:38) run away with the Eagles' starting running back job? To close out the show, each expert names a couple mistakes (1:01:14) that commonly destroy fantasy owners' drafts.
Our duo spends today's show discussing which players have the most risk entering the 2019 season. Should expectations be reigned in for Joe Mixon (20:37), has Cooper Kupp (41:16) already peaked, and is a big regression coming for Patrick Mahomes (51:57)? Before closing out the show, the guys introduce a new trivia segment called Fantasy Odd Man Out (58:39). Listen to find out how many questions Tags get right (along with whether he'll be forever recognized as the world champion)!
Matt Harmon from Yahoo Sports is in with us today as we analyze our wide receiver rankings and identify which players standout in their respective tiers. Should Tyreek Hill (11:42) be viewed as a top-tier wideout and what concerns should drafters have with Amari Cooper (27:49)? Is it best to avoid A.J. Green (34:34) and how would Melvin Gordon's holdout affect Mike Williams (47:06)?
Today we're joined by Heath Cummings from CBS Sports and analyze which players you should buy or sell the hype on. Is it time to hop aboard the Miles Sanders (17:45) hype train and should we expect Josh Gordon (36:01) to play at all this year? Plus, what are the odds that Patrick Mahomes (42:49) repeats as the QB1, Todd Gurley (49:33) finishes as a top-three RB, and Tyler Lockett (57:18) receives 100 targets?
Former NFL offensive lineman, Ross Tucker, comes on with us to share his thoughts on the most interesting training camp tidbits. What's the biggest concern we should have regarding Le'Veon Bell (12:15), what do we make of the holdouts from Ezekiel Elliott (26:03) and Melvin Gordon, and can Miles Sanders (36:02) be a workhorse in Philly? Towards the end of the show, our hosts aim to identify which players might be the next Matt Ryan (46:29), Alvin Kamara (51:01), and Adam Thielen (55:04) among many others.
The guys explain which players they largely differ on compared to the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) at each position and then engage in a fun, new segment called Fantasy Fill in the Blank (49:15). Is Jared Goff (3:19) QB1 or QB2 material, does Joe Mixon (17:46) have a capped ceiling, and can David Moore (37:59) lead the Seahawks in targets? Toward the end of the show, we take a stab at naming a couple players who could be on the highest percentage of fantasy playoff rosters (59:26).
Our duo opens spends the show breaking down draft strategies for all sorts of draft types and settings after examining the ramifications of A.J. Green's injury (4:33). We touch on how to handle two-quaterback leagues (29:36), explain the Zero RB (37:10) strategy, and share our insight into how much strength of schedule (46:51) matters. The guys also give their tips on how to best approach drafts in auction (52:12), dynasty (55:17), and best ball (58:58) formats.
Sean Koerner of The Action Network gives us a hand today and together, we walk you through the players he likes more or less than the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR) along with which athletes hold sneaky upside this season. How concerned should fantasy owners be about Sony Michel's (9:59) knee and will Tyrell Williams (19:06) be better than many expect in Oakland? How much upside does Jimmy Garoppolo (39:50) have despite the lack of rushing and what is Austin Hooper's (54:25) potential?
Sigmund Bloom from Footballguys hops in with us to go over fantasy football's most interesting training camp battles and break down virtually every AFC North skill player's fantasy value. Will Rashaad Penny (8:17) steal the starting job from Chris Carson and what do we make of the Buccaneers' backfield (28:43)? Are the Steelers (43:40) really switching to a running back-by-committee approach this season and is Joe Mixon (54:39) primed to underperform in 2019?
Our good friend, Joe Pisapia, author of the Fantasy Black Book series, has joined today to project which athletes will see their ADP rise. Phillip Lindsay (6:27) may be looking at even more touches in 2019 and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (28:36) has the chance to excel if he begins the year as Green Bay's No. 2 WR. The guys later engage in some pre-game hijinx (41:24) before concluding the show with another fun Fantasy Feud (43:41) segment. Listen until the end to find out who wins!
Jared Smola from DraftSharks returns to discuss which players he ranks much differently compared to our Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR). After that, we go divisional once again and analyze every important skill player in the AFC South. Where should Tyreek Hill (3:02) be selected now that he will not be suspended? The guys later debate Tyrell Williams' (25:04) value in Oakland and discuss which Indy WR (47:06) will have the most fantasy relevance outside of T.Y. Hilton.
Our dynamic duo spends today's show giving you the skinny on their favorite high-upside running backs and wideouts. We debate exactly how much upside Dalvin Cook (6:10) has and share our thoughts on when fantasy owners should start to panic regarding Melvin Gordon (19:53) and Ezekiel Elliott. Does Lamar Miller (32:38) have stud potential in the Texans' offense and can D.J. Moore (49:15) explode as Carolina's bona fide top WR?
The crew is joined today by Eliot Crist of The Quant Edge and together they run through their top post-hype sleepers and break down every single fantasy-relevant player in the AFC West. Does Jameis Winston (28:53), have the potential to be a stud this year, how much should Melvin Gordon's (42:32) holdout worry fantasy owners, and how do we value Royce Freeman (50:22 & 53:20) and Phillip Lindsay heading into their sophomore campaigns?
On today's show, our duo runs through their top 10 deep sleepers and examines the upside of each player discussed. How many targets can James Washington (10:53) see this season, will Lamar Jackson (19:50) run for 1,000 yards in 2019, and is Geoff Swaim (38:24) a future tight end stud who is completely off the radar? What kind of workload will Justice Hill (44:38) handle and which Tampa Bay running back (54:53) has the best shot at excelling in Bruce Arians' offense?
Bill Enright of Fantasy Football Champs is with us as we break down our favorite undervalued players and examine every fantasy-relevant athlete in the AFC East. Is James Conner (4:08) deserving of a mid-first round pick and is Josh Gordon (27:25) a sleeping stud or a waste of a roster spot? How concerning are Sony Michel's (42:08) knee issues and can fantasy owners feel good about any Dolphins wideout (53:36)?
On today's show, we break down each RB2-caliber back and examine every fantasy-relevant player in the NFC North. What is the likelihood of Damien Williams (8:23) being stuck in a timeshare and does Marlon Mack (16:22) have more upside and safety than Aaron Jones? The guys later explain why Mitch Trubisky (32:29) is a better QB than Cam Newton, shed light on why Aaron Rodgers (55:14) should be ranked as the QB1 and when he should be taken, and share the risk with selecting Kerryon Johnson (1:13:20).
Our duo begins the show by breaking down their players to avoid in drafts before they dig deep into NFC South fantasy analysis. Tyler Lockett's (11:21) efficiency in 2018 may not be sustainable, Le'Veon Bell's (16:17) offense and coach could hold him back, and Seattle's lack of pass attempts doesn't bode well for Russell Wilson (30:26). Would it be surprising if Alvin Kamara (40:23) finished as the RB1, is Cam Newton's (58:53) rushing upside eroding, and how high is Ronald Jones' (1:06:10) ceiling?
On today's show, we break down who we're picking in the first round of fantasy drafts and take a deep dive through the NFC West alongside our guest, Jared Smola from DraftSharks. Who should fantasy owners grab first overall (1:11) and how early should you consider taking Travis Kelce (10:10)? Is there any hope that Russell Wilson (39:39) gets more pass attempts in 2019, and does any 49ers RB (48:11) have a chance to become a consistent fantasy producer?
Kyle Yates, writer for The Fantasy Footballers, hops on with us as we take part in a half-PPR draft. Each expert selects a wide receiver to start the draft (2:57). Kyle is torn between James White (20:14) and Rashaad Penny. How concerned should owners who want Eric Ebron (24:22) be about Jack Doyle's return from injury? The guys answer a couple listener mailbag questions at the end of the show, the second of which asks whether you should be worried about A.J. Green's (42:53) difficult schedule?
Justin Boone, lead fantasy analyst for theScore, hops on with us as we take a look at 2019's riskiest players and decide who is slated to boom or bust. Where should Eric Ebron (13:29) get taken in drafts this preseason and are people overlooking Hunter Henry's (19:26) upside? Was Derrick Henry's (33:17) late-season burst misleading, and does Kyler Murray (1:02:14) have a higher chance of producing elite QB1 numbers or being a total dud?
This episode is a hot one as we've got Joe Pisapia on with us to give our bold predictions for the upcoming fantasy season. Do you believe that Saquon Barkley could finish outside the top six running backs (9:03)? Is Deshaun Watson going to outscore Patrick Mahomes (23:50), and what are the chances that Derrick Henry leads the league in rushing (46:29)? We're getting bold while backing up our predictions and close out the show with Tags and Joe facing off in Fantasy Feud (53:42).
We're starting a new series breaking down each division's fantasy relevant players to provide a deeper dive into some names that you may not hear about as often. Is Michael Gallup being overlooked as the No. 2 in Dallas (6:40), who else is valuable in the Philly receiving corps (15:46), should you draft Jordan Howard/Miles Sanders (26:29), what about Adrian Peterson/Derrius Guice (31:32)? Get the lowdown on how to approach different draft strategies (44:14).
Brandon Funston of The Athletic joined us for some fun and we're mock drafting with Half-PPR settings to give you a look at our thought process when making picks. With the 2nd, 4th, and 5th picks, all three guys start off with running backs (6:14). Brandon gets his guy in the second round with Josh Jacobs (13:30) and we talk more about why he's the one guy he's going after in all drafts (55:09). Will there be enough targets in Houston for all three WRs (33:04) and Tags does the Vance dance (39:31).
We're continuing our preseason fantasy football coverage and in this episode, Denny Carter, owner of DraftDayConsultants.com, joins us to give the lowdown on who you can expect to bounce back after a down 2018. We go position-by-position starting with RB (4:57), WR (26:29), QB (47:33), and wrap things up at TE (54:58). Where will David Johnson finish among fantasy RBs (1:41), would you rather have Fournette or Bell for a full 16 games (6:24), and why are people sleeping on A.J. Green?
The guys and our guest, Pat Fitzmaurice of TheFootballGirl.com, break down the players at each position they think have the best odds of breaking out in 2019. Justin Jackson (9:35) and Darrell Henderson (15:14) are potentially an injury away from high-level production, but one of them may be overhyped. Has Phillip Dorsett (46:19) finally developed into a viable fantasy receiver, and would it be unwise to sleep on Jimmy Garoppolo's (56:31) upside?
Our duo is joined today by Rich Dotson, founder of DynastyNerds.com, and together they analyze the top dynasty values at each position. The guys debate on who has more dynasty value between Jameis Winston (10:09) and Matt Ryan (16:41) and then compare the long-term stock of James White (28:23) and Chris Carson (31:38). Is Jack Doyle's (46:04) price too low or just right? Does Marquise Brown (54:47) hold DeSean Jackson-like boom, or is he a dud in the making?
In today's episode, we highlight the QB and TE rankings we disagree with the most. Is Ben Roethlisberger (6:03) exceptionally undervalued or highly overvalued, would it be wise to assume that Patrick Mahomes (14:29) will replicate last year's production, and is Baker Mayfield's (33:13) upside capped? Does Eric Ebron (45:42) have a chance at seeing 100 targets again, and how much value would Dallas Goedert (49:54) have if Zach Ertz was forced to miss time during the season?
Jake Ciely from The Athletic is with the gang as they dissect the Expert Consensus WR rankings and decide who is too high and too low. While we can all agree that James Washington (38:02) is being criminally overlooked and that the fantasy community is taking Jarvis Landry (1:02:57) at his ceiling, who did we have dissenting opinions on? Tags is confident in DeVante Parker's (24:45) upside to Jake's chagrin, and Bobby defends Chris Godwin's (51:33) potential, but Tags isn't thrilled with his target volume.
Our crew is joined by Yahoo's Andy Behrens and together we take part in a dynasty mock draft. Bobby nabs Christian McCaffrey (1:45) third overall, Tags takes Odell Beckham (1:57) fifth overall, and Andy selects DeAndre Hopkins (3:06) from the sixth spot. How much upside does Kyler Murray (21:00) have in Kliff Kingsbury's offense in the long term and when will 40-year-old QB Drew Brees (30:42) fall off the proverbial cliff? Towards the end, Andy faces off against Tags in our first ever Fantasy Feud (39:37)!
We are joined by 2018's most accurate in-season expert, Matthew Hill from DataForce. Together, the trio examines which RBs may be ranked too high or too low on our half-PPR expert consensus rankings (ECR). The analysis is kicked off with diverging opinions on Damien Williams (8:08). Is the industry far too pessimistic on Leonard Fournette (16:38) and Ronald Jones (30:18), and is it a mistake to select Le'Veon Bell (45:51) within the top two rounds?
Mike Tagliere has taken the time to analyze every NFL team and break down which player on each squad is the biggest value in dynasty drafts relative to their ADP. Follow along as Bobby Sylvester tries to guess Tags' selection for each team. Is Drew Brees (15:58) nothing more than a glorified system QB, would any team pick up Tyreek Hill (31:46) if the Chiefs release him, and is JuJu Smith-Schuster (48:11) primed to regress this season?
Our hosts dive deep into the latest QB and TE rankings and analyze the fantasy impact of each head coaching change. Is Patrick Mahomes (4:31) locked in as the top QB, and what is it that early drafters are forgetting about Jameis Winston (13:27)? How much upside does Vance McDonald (32:53) possess, and what will Arizona's offense look like under Kliff Kingsbury (42:29) scheme?
David Dorey, co-founder of The Huddle, joins the fun as we take an in-depth dive through our latest RB and WR rankings. Leonard Fournette (10:50) has crazy potential, but how far does his risk push down his value? Will the Titans continue to use Derrick Henry (15:02) as their bonafide workhorse, and why is James White (26:31) so undervalued? Plus, what should fantasy owners expect from Robert Foster (41:35) in 2019 and just how much upside does Marquise Brown (50:00) have this season?
Davis Mattek from Swolecast hops into a mock draft with us on today's show. Tags kicks off the festivities by selecting Ezekiel Elliott (4:02) second overall, Davis nabs David Johnson (4:21) with the 10th pick, and Bobby swiped Travis Kelce (4:47) at the 12th spot. When should Tyreek Hill (9:58) be selected, can Evan Engram (22:37) be trusted despite his lack of efficiency, and is Kareem Hunt (32:43) even worth taking a chance on? At the end, the trio compares their draft grades and rosters (48:15).
The guys execute a dynasty rookie draft and analyze their picks along the way. Bobby takes N'Keal Harry (2:22) first overall, while Tags selects Josh Jacobs (2:59) second overall. Is the Rams' high selection of Darrell Henderson (13:39) an indication of how they feel about Todd Gurley's health, and how much long-term value does Ryquell Armstead (30:01) have as Leonard Fournette's backup? Listen until the end to find out who each of them selected!
Our duo has returned to provide their immediate insight on the NFL Draft. Josh Jacobs (6:13 and 9:22) should receive more volume than any other rookie RB. Is N'Keal Harry (23:41) primed to be the top dynasty rookie wideout? The Cardinals are motivated to give Kyler Murray (43:19) every opportunity to succeed. Was drafting T.J. Hockenson (52:49) eighth overall a wise move for Detroit, and what are our biggest takeaways from the draft outside of the skill position players (57:55)?
The NFL draft is now just days away and we're covering everything you need to know about what could go down on day one. Most people believe they know what's going to happen with the No. 1 pick, but we're talking through why Kyler Murray might be the guy (3:22). Draft day trades are a big part of the excitement and we're looking at what top 10 teams could make moves (9:44). We're closing out the show discussing the most popular prop bets (48:38).
The day we've all been waiting for is just about here as our favorite teams descend onto Nashville for the NFL Draft. Danny Kelly of The Ringer joins us on the pod as we tackle one final mock draft. We're playing GM, making trades, and picking players based on what we believe the teams will do come Thursday. What happens to the draft if the Cardinals take Bosa at 1 (6:28)? How far will Quinnen Williams fall (13:37), the Bills take the first wide receiver off the board (27:10)...
With each passing day, we get closer to the NFL draft. We’re continuing our positional coverage of the incoming rookies and we’re tackling the WRs (4:20) & TEs (40:46). Joining us to give his thoughts is Travis May of Rotoviz. Should Hakeem Butler be in the top tier (4:50) and who would the guys take as the top WR (9:31)? Does Parris Campbell deserve more attention (19:50)? Who are the deeper WRs to pay attention to (31:51) and which tight ends make the most impact for fantasy right away (40:59)?
With the NFL Draft less than a month away, we give an in-depth breakdown of the incoming RB and QB draft class. However, our duo kicks off this episode with their thoughts on the Jordan Howard trade (4:40) and the return of the listener mailbag (10:24). Is Miles Sanders (28:20) the best bet of all RBs to produce if he gets the chance to play, how much upside does Bryce Love (42:43) have, and should the Dolphins take Drew Lock (1:01:18) if he falls to them?
The NFL Draft is in under a month, but we're taking the opportunity now to start getting all dynasty players prepared as we take you through our thoughts while running two separate mock drafts. Before we jump into the fun, Jared Cook signed with the Saints (1:14) and Rob Gronkowski decided to retire (2:20). Find out how that impacts fantasy owners and what the tight end landscape now looks like. Should you go best player available or fill a position of need early on (14:23)?
With the NFL Draft drawing ever closer, we simply couldn't resist the opportunity to do one ourselves. Paul Perdichizzi, co-host of the Saturday2Sunday Football Podcast, gets in on the action with us. Each of these guys is acting as the GM for these teams and selecting the guys they feel are the best fit for each team. Who does Arizona take first overall (4:03)? Plus, the Giants (9:28) and Dolphins (11:10) move up to grab quarterbacks, and Aaron Rodgers gets a new toy (55:58) late in the first round.
The guys examine both fantasy and reality's biggest winners and losers from the NFL free agency period. Playing in the Saints' offense is a huge boon to Latavius Murray's (7:14) value, and Damien Williams' (20:10) success late last season might have had more to do with the Chiefs' system than his talent. Baker Mayfield's (30:16) dynasty stock gets a big boost thanks to Odell Beckham Jr.'s arrival in Cleveland, but what exactly is the Giants' (56:52) vision for the future?
We've got a special episode just in time for the madness that is the NCAA Tournament. Joining us to help you nail your bracket picks is the crew from TeamRankings.com. Whether you're putting together your first bracket or are looking for some new strategies, find out how different contests may require different approaches (4:30). We're naming our favorite upsets (8:23) and which double-digit seeds could make it to the sweet 16 (18:00)? Virginia & Gonzaga are strong sleeper candidates to win it all (24:40).
Our dynamic duo conducts a mock draft for us now that the biggest fantasy-relevant free agents have signed with their new teams. However, we first break down Golden Tate's (2:37) new landing spot and how it affects his value. Tags then kicks off the half-PPR, 12-team draft by selecting Julio Jones 10th overall (4:16) and Bobby nabs Odell Beckham with the 12th pick (5:37). Does O.J. Howard (12:21) have more dynasty value than Travis Kelce and should redraft players fully avoid Kareem Hunt (22:24)?
The guys come together for a super-sized show to share their initial thoughts on every recent fantasy relevant transaction that has taken place. To lead off the show, we break down the Odell Beckham trade (4:04) and how it shakes up the fantasy landscape for both the Giants and Browns. How good of a fit are the Jets for Le'Veon Bell (17:18), will Nick Foles (29:50) succeed in Jacksonville, and what can we expect from John Brown (34:49) in Buffalo?
We give our quick thoughts on how the Antonio Brown trade affects the fantasy landscape. How will playing in Oakland affect his value (1:24), is JuJu Smith-Schuster's (7:35) value helped or hurt by Brown's departure, and are Ben Roethlisberger (10:40) and Derek Carr (12:11) starter-caliber fantasy quarterbacks in 2019?
We take a look at where 2019's top free agents might be heading this offseason alongside our guest, Eliot Crist from The Quant Edge. The guys predict where Antonio Brown (5:26) and Odell Beckham (10:18) may get traded to and discuss where Le'Veon Bell (21:41) could land. Would Tyrod Taylor (14:10) be a better fit for Jacksonville than Nick Foles (12:32), and are the Colts the best team for John Brown (33:50)?
The combine has wrapped up and while some players will show off their measurables through pro days, we've now had a chance to combine our film reviews with raw measuring sticks for those that participated. Andy Singleton of Expand the Boxscore joins us to walk through all the key offensive positions of fantasy football and name the biggest risers and fallers at the RB (3:03), WR (13:06), QB (31:05) and TE (41:47) positions. Kyler Murray is taller than we thought & is he now worth the top pick (31:05)?
Which players will we be watching at the combine, who has the most to prove, and what are the drills we should pay the most attention to? Matt Waldman of FootballGuys.com joins the fray to give his insight on all this and more. Which specific drill might be the best indicator of a wide receiver's ability to succeed at the next level (12:05), which version of Bryce Love (28:04) might the NFL see in 2019, and is Kyler Murray's (37:53) size a huge concern for him heading into the draft?
R.C. Fischer of Fantasy Football Metrics helps us kick off our draft coverage as we provide an overview of this draft class's most potentially impactful players at each skill position. Is there a possibility Josh Jacobs (3:43) may not be the top back in this class and is D.K. Metcalf (34:29) being overhyped? Plus, can any rookie QBs outside of Kyler Murray (56:04) make an immediate fantasy impact, and who would be the more desirable fantasy tight end between Irv Smith (1:02:55) and Noah Fant (1:04:09)?
The crew spends today's show largely discussing who dynasty leaguers should get rid of while they can and which players would be solid buys on the cheap. Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas (7:18) are two receivers who may not have much left in the tank, whereas Jameis Winston (27:33) is trending up thanks to a coaching change and solid surrounding cast. Plus, how does Joe Flacco's (34:17) arrival affect Denver's wideouts and what do we make of Cleveland's acquisition of Kareem Hunt (36:43)?
Our guys each give their top 10 favorite statistical takeaways from this past NFL season. Marcus Mariota's (10:47) vast number of passing yards per passing TD doesn't bode well for his 2019 production and Jameis Winston (14:24) is the ultimate gunslinger based on his air yard percentage. Jared Goff's (25:57) offensive line was a huge factor in his success and Christian McCaffrey (36:35) may struggle to come close to last year's record-breaking reception total.
The biggest sports game in America takes place on Sunday and we're not only making our game predictions (25:42), but we're also running through our favorite prop bets that you can have some fun with yourself (9:13). If you're heading to a party, make sure to start/sit these snacks (1:45). Will Jared Goff throw an interception (20:44), what's the likelihood of Todd Gurley going over 3.5 receptions (24:15), and will Julian Edelman go over 80.5 yards (25:14)?
Our crew dives into their first fantasy mock draft of the 2019 fantasy football season. How early might Patrick Mahomes (7:03) get taken in drafts this season, how much value may Derrick Henry (20:32) lose in PPR formats, and does Andrew Luck have a better chance than Matt Ryan (33:33) to finish as a top-three QB? Was Ronald Jones' (43:25) poor rookie season a product of Dirk Koetter's scheme and can Marquez Valdes-Scantling (45:31 & 47:41) start the season as Green Bay's primary slot receiver?
We extensively pick apart both AFC and NFC Championship games from every angle and evaluate each relevant players' viability. How might the loss of Saints DT Sheldon Rankins affect the Rams' running game (11:56) and does Michael Thomas' (16:50) price hurt his viability in cash games. Also, does Patrick Mahomes' (29:29) relatively low price on DraftKings make him a no-brainer, is Julian Edelman (37:34) the perfect stack partner for DFS players who choose Tom Brady, and who are our locks of the week (49:26)?
We go headfirst into the action as we analyze each of this weekend's playoff games and identify which players are the best cash game or GPP options. You can't go wrong paying up for either Patrick Mahomes (5:04) or Andrew Luck (5:40) in cash games and both of their tight ends (21:08) figure to be the top two plays at the position. If you're unable to roster both Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott (30:37) then which one should you spend big on and is it wise to fade Tom Brady (44:04) in the playoffs?
