Fantasy Football Podcast: ADP Check 5-31-18

We’re a month past the NFL Draft and several months into best-ball drafts on various sites. So it’s a good time to take stock of ADP trends. We’re looking at MFL10 drafts since May 15 and comparing that ADP with pre-April drafts to see what’s changing … and perhaps what still should. Here’s the lineup: 3:04 – QBs are falling, especially Carson Wentz, Jimmy Garoppolo and Andrew Luck 12:32 – Jerick McKinnon way up … too high? 18:23 – Carlos Hyde down but still leading Nick Chubb 22:26...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Projections Surprises 5-17-18

​ Welp. I often get tired of Jared not listening to me. So this time I decided to screw up his mic feed. In all seriousness, sorry about the audio quality. I didn’t realize my error until we had wrapped the whole thing. But the content’s still worth a listen. Just don’t try it while mowing your lawn. Jared and I have gotten through our initial projections, and we’re pointing out the players who came out surprisingly high and low. Become a DS Insider now to get access to our full 2018...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Dynasty Rankings Update 5-10-18

​ The new rookie class got the treatment on last week’s show, but they’re far from the only movers in our dynasty rankings. Today we’re looking at the veterans who made big moves up or down the rankings over the past week, as well as checking on where some key rookies landed. Before we get to that, though, there’s some big RB news to hit on … Today’s playlist: 1:45 — Mark Ingram news (and Alvin Kamara impact) 8:30 — C.J. Anderson to Panthers (and impact on Christian McCaffrey) 11:00 —...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Rookie Rankings Reset 5-2-18

​ We put in the study time on the 2018 rookie class. Then the NFL Draft gave everyone a home (or not). Like every year, that means a lot of movement in our dynasty rookie-draft rankings compared with the pre-draft version. In this show, we’re looking at the guys who made the biggest moves up or down the list, and then throwing out a few more players that we’re specifically targeting in rookie drafts. Players covered in this episode include: Rashaad Penny


Fantasy Football Podcast: NFL Draft Round 1 Recap 4-27-18

​ Round 1 of the NFL Draft is in the books, and the QBs flew just like we all expected. Baker Mayfield landed in the best spot and has now become the unanimous top fantasy QB for dynasty rookie drafting among our staff. Now, let’s dig into how landing spots impacted the rest of the class. Is there sneaky upside to the supporting casts for Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen? Anything to like about Josh Allen? And did going to Baltimore hurt Lamar Jackson? We’ll start the show, though with the 3...


Fantasy Football Podcast: WR and TE Preview 4-18-18

​ If teams are looking for a new Dez Bryant in this year’s NFL Draft, they’re not likely to find him. We don’t like anyone in the 2018 group as much as we did Corey Davis a year ago, and there might not be a wideout worthy of going in the 1st half of Round 1. But the class gets deep after that, both in intrigue and questions. Jared and Matt run out their pre-draft Top 5s on today’s podcast, agreeing on D.J. Moore and Courtland Sutton in the lead spots. We’re also together on Colorado...


Fantasy Football Podcast: RB and QB prospects 4-12-18

Saquon Barkley will be the 1st pick in your dynasty rookie draft. With that out of the way, we can dive into a group of RBs that presents plenty of intrigue behind him. Jared and Matt disagree can’t agree on the order of any of the next 4 backs … though they both have Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Derrius Guice and Rashaad Penny in that range. We’ll also hit on Royce Freeman, Kalen Ballage, Josh Adams, Ronald Jones, Bo Scarbrough, John Kelly, Kerryon Johnson, Nyheim Hines and Mark Walton....


Fantasy Football Podcast: ADP Check 4-5-18

Are you drafting for 2018 yet? PlayDraft, FFPC and MFL10 best-ball leagues have been running since before the groundhog popped out. That means we have ADP numbers worth running through, whether you’re taking part in the drafts or simply looking ahead for the coming season. Is it too late to mine for value among the incoming rookie class? Are QBs still going too early? How should the resurgence of the RB shape your draft approach? Who are the mid-round values that jump out at WR? And...


IDP Podcast: Big Free-Agent Moves 3-29-18

It’s been months since we talked IDPs on the podcast waves, so let’s jump back in with a free agency roundup. We’ll hit: – Anthony Hitchens’ eye-opening deal in Kansas City – Zach Brown finally sticking somewhere – Nigel Bradham cashing in – Avery Williamson finding a new team that likes him more – Demario Davis leveraging a rebound season – Tahir Whitehead and Preston Brown getting new shots in new places – The Bucs renovating their pass rush with Jason Pierre-Paul and Vinny...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Free Agent Frenzy 3-14-18

It’s been a while, but we’re pretty sure we remember how to do this whole podcast thing. And what better way to jump back in than to break down all the “legal tampering” action kicking off NFL free agency. What’s the issue that Kirk Cousins will need to overcome to deliver big fantasy value with the Vikings? Who will lead the Titans in carries? Who’s right about regular pod topics Bilal Powell and Jerick McKinnon? Who knew anyone actually liked Ryan Grant that much? And which free-agent WR...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Divisional Round Preview 1-11-18

Another 4-game slate makes it harder to differentiate in DFS, but we’re breaking down the matchups to try anyway. Show notes: Falcons-Eagles: Could there be surprising value in a wideout from each side? And should you be paying more attention to Matt Ryan? Titans-Patriots: Can Derrick Henry do it again? Who’s set up to succeed in the New England backfield? Saints-Vikings: Will there be enough points in this game to make it worthwhile? Which Viking just might head into the weekend...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Wild Card Preview 1-4-18

Fantasy football season doesn’t have to end with the NFL regular season, and it doesn’t for many players. So today’s show jumps into playoff fantasy football. We’re talking some strategy for full playoffs drafting — i.e. which teams to target and how to approach them — before digging specifically into the FFPC’s Playoff Challenge. After we set lineups there, it’s on to the Wild Card slate and some DFS advice for playing on FanDuel and DraftKings. Check our Week 18 rankings for sleepers...


DFS Podcast: Week 17 DraftKings 12-29-17

Now that he’s locked up the season-long victory in the Crown His Ass Challenge, Jared has his sights set pretty firmly on the Lions for Week 17 — with multiple pass-offense picks across positions. With Kevin out once again, both remaining guys seem to agree pretty well on the TE tiers for this week, which could fill your flex spot as well. The 16-game main slate also leaves plenty of directions to travel at RB, but also lots of room for disagreement. And the D/ST slot gains a few more...


DFS Podcast: Week 17 FanDuel 12-29-17

​ ​A full, 16-game DFS slate for Week 17 should mean a bevy of QB options, but Matt and Jared didn’t have much trouble agreeing on their top targets — led by a certain NFC North passer with big upside at home. At RB, Derrick Henry carries a lot of popularity into the weekend but creates a bit of a divide on this show. There are other cheaper backfield options we can agree on, though, and we don’t have any trouble finding common ground at wideout — including a high-ceiling play at $5200....


Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 17 Preview 12-29-17

Why not play your fantasy football season through Week 17? Jerry Jones answered that this week by calling the Cowboys’ playing time into question. Doug Marrone answered it as well, vowing to play “all out” … though in a position where it’s tough to trust RB Leonard Fournette. And we’re just hoping the Steelers will answer it before Sunday’s kickoff. We’re running through the teams we know are resting players as well as the injury situations you’ll need to watch into the weekend and a few...


DFS Podcast: Week 16 DraftKings 12-22-17

​ Can the Seahawks’ wildly disappointing Week 15 create DFS opportunity in NFL Week 16? There’s room for them in tournament lineups at least. But there’s also an affordable QB on the other side of the country, a pair of expensive RBs in the league’s best backfield, some volume bets toward the other end of the cost spectrum and a range of TE options to digest. At WR, is there a clear top guy or a pair to try to squeeze in. And what should we do with Dede Westbrook after he crushed fantasy...


DFS Podcast: Week 16 FanDuel 12-22-17

With Kevin still out tending to parental duties, Jared and Matt open the NFL Week 16 show agreeing disturbingly easy. That’s because there’s a nicely priced, strong-performing, under-played QB in a nice matchup to build around on FanDuel this week. His lead WR could be in for a big bounce back as well. In between, there’s a RB who has been delivering for a while but could get a boost from a teammate’s injury — along with a cheap rusher who has been loading up on volume lately. At WR, both...


IDP Podcast: Week 15 Who to Trust 12-16-17

Let’s kick this week’s show off with some key defensive injury situations to watch for NFL Week 15. Then we have updates on Denzel Perryman, some intriguing rookie LBs and some nice defensive matchups in the Eagles-Giants game … along with a few other notes. ​Check our Week 15 IDP rankings to answer your start/sit questions.


DFS Podcast: Week 15 DraftKings 12-15-17

​ It’s not usually easy to find certain touches way down the RB price list, but this looks like a good week to do so. We’ve got no fewer than 3 options at $5K or cheaper that can play across contest formats in NFL Week 15. We’ve also got affordable QBs from multiple games to like and a potentially underserved game stack out west. ​Check our Week 15 PPR rankings for potential sleepers and busts.
