Late Spring ADP Check 6-3-20

We're a couple of weeks past releasing our 2020 fantasy football projections, and we've had more than a month for the NFL Draft to change plenty in the way we're drafting. So this looks like a good time for an ADP check. How much are RB dominating the the start? Who's going way too early at each position? Which late WRs could win your league? And which TE is just being drafted stupidly? Here's the rundown: Early RB landscape ... 2:21 Undervalued RBs ... 7:32 Overvalued RBs ... 19:25 QB...


Dynasty IDP w/ Mike Woellert 6-1-20

We have ranked the IDP rookies​​ and broken down the class here on the podcast. On this show, Mike Woellert of 4for4.com joins me to add some context to these rookies. We'll talk about who looks ready to contribute right away and where they fit in the overall dynasty rankings. And we'll look beyond the rookies to pick out some sleepers and sell-high candidates for 2020 and beyond. Here's the rundown: Chase Young vs. everyone ... 1:27 The next group ... 5:24 Veteran D-linemen to target...


Projections Party Battles 5-14-20

​ We had our annual projections party Wednesday, which means you can now find our official 2020 fantasy football rankings! But just because we've got 1 set of projections doesn't mean that we agree on every player. On today's show, we're recapping some of our key arguments from the projections party and hitting on some other players where we come out MUCH different than consensus. Let's tackle it by position: QBs ... 1:30 RBs ... 10:29 WRs ... 28:21 TEs ... 53:19 ​Check out our 2020...


Rookie IDPs w/ Sigmund Bloom

​It's fantasy football projections time around here, which has Jared busy ahead of next week's release. So I'm taking this opportunity to talk IDPs, and I'm bringing in one of my favorite people from the industry to do so with me. Footballguys' Sigmund Bloom comes on to talk Chase Young vs. Patrick Queen at the top of the rookie IDP board, Patrick Queen vs. the other LBs, an exciting class of safeties and much more. Here's the rundown: Chase Young up top? ... 9:23 K'Lavon Chaisson and the...


Full NFL Draft Impact 4-30-20

​​The NFL Draft is now behind us. You can find our dynasty rookie rankings (plus IDPs) on the site. And we're busy on 2020 fantasy football projections as draft season quickly approaches. Today, we'll look into which rookies we might have higher or lower than other places, and we'll talk about the situations around the league most impacted by NFL Draft picks. Here's the rundown: Rookies we're low on ... 3:05 Rookies we're high on ... 10:05 Chiefs backfield ... 18:13 Ravens backfield ......


NFL Draft 1st Round 4-24-20

​QBs flew off the board early and to expected destinations in Round 1 of the NFL Draft. Do Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa remain the clear top 2 for fantasy, though?​ We have trouble agreeing on that. There's no disagreement on Clyde Edwards-Helaire's cushy fantasy landing, though. And this vaunted WR class showed out on Thursday night. Who's outlook brightened and whose got murkier? Here's the rundown: Clyde Edwards-Helaire ... 1:26 The QBs ... 4:24 Wide receivers ... 14:17 Tackles to...


Rookie QB-TE Preview 4-15-20

Let's wrap up our dynasty prospect preview series with the QBs and tight ends. The quarterback class features more fantasy intrigue than the 2019 passers did, including a high-upside option that appears headed for Day 2 of the NFL Draft. The TE class looks about as exciting as a bottle of sleeping pills, but we're pouring out some upside even there. Here's the rundown ... Jared's sleeper receiver ... 1:10 The top 2 at QB ... 3:45 The ultimate ceiling target ... 10:43 The Jordan Love...


Rookie RB Preview 4-9-20

​ Is this a strong RB class or merely a top-heavy group? It's easy to love Jonathan Taylor (unless you're trying too hard to not). D'Andre Swift and J.K. Dobbins should be easy picks in dynasty rookie drafts as well. But is Clyde Edwards-Helaire a shoo-in for fantasy production? Is Cam Akers about to be better off in the pros than he was in college? And who are the upside guys beyond that group? Let's dig in. ​Check out our WR preview podcast, along with all of the FREE Dynasty Prospect...


Rookie WR preview 4-7-20

​ This year's receiver class could be one of the best in a long time. Jared's been digging deep into the group, just like he does every year. So we're looking at his early top 10, but also discussing some others who could move up and some wideouts who could be steals later in your dynasty rookie draft. We'll talk CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy, but also many others. ​Check out all of our dynasty prospect scouting profiles for free.


FFPC Draft Recap 3-26-20

RBs are flying off the board as quickly as ever in early best-ball drafting. And we're recapping an FFPC draft on today's show -- with special guest, high-stakes veteran Adam Krautwurst -- so you know the TEs will factor in prominently. But the most intriguing names might not be going quite as early as you'd expect in the 1.5-point per catch format. Find out where the top rookie backs and wideouts start coming off the board and when you should target QBs if you plan to jump into your own...


IDP Free Agency Roundup 3-24-20

We already hit on DeAndre Hopkins and the other offensive movers in the NFL Free Agency and the trade market. Now it's IDP time. Joe Schobert's got a new home. Cory Littleton, too. And LB voids in New England and Philadelphia might be setting up early sleeper situations. Let's run through all the action so far, by position: DL/EDGE ... 2:15 LB ... 17:21 DB ... 29:34 Head over to DraftSharks.com to check Shark Bites, our full list of Dynasty Prospect Scouting Reports and all the other...


NFL Free Agency Roundup 3-19-20

DeAndre Hopkins has a new home ... but is it a better one? Stefon Diggs finally got out of a situation he seemed to loathe. But how different is his new spot? Philip Rivers and Tom Brady will change jerseys for the 1st time in their careers. And the TE market has been full of early action. We're spending today's show breaking down some early winners, losers and questions we still need answered​​. ​ Check out Shark Bites for full coverage of all the relevant moves on both sides of the ball....


Best-Ball ADP Check 2-19-20

​ It might technically be the "offseason," but the downtime for fantasy football drafts these days is shorter than The Irishman. Best-ball drafts are running on MyFFPC.com and elsewhere and have been for a while ... long enough for us to start gauging some ADP figures. We're a bit surprised at how early Melvin Gordon and Kyler Murray are going. We're pleased with the late value available at TE. And there are a few players at each position that Jared and Matt can't quite agree on. Whether...


Week 2 XFL 2-13-20

​ ​We now have a week's worth of XFL games behind us, which helped reveal some things that the team depth charts kept secret. But the Week 1 stats also delivered some potential mirages -- along with some usage that just might be worth chasing in Week 2. We'll dig through those numbers and hit on the injury situations that might cost a couple of teams their starting QBs, while a couple of others get their starters back. Here's the rundown: New York Guardians at D.C. Defenders ......


XFL Opening Week 2-6-20

​​XFL opening weekend is here, and we're breaking down all 4 games. Offensive gurus Marc Trestman and Hal Mumme have us excited about their passing-game pieces. Christine Michael and Elijah Hood look like strong bets for touches. And there's more than enough WR/TE value to support any build you like. Here's the rundown: Seattle Dragons at D.C. Defenders ... 6:41 L.A. Wildcats at Houston Roughnecks ... 21:17 Tampa Bay Vipers at New York Guardians ... 32:34 St. Louis BattleHawks at Dallas...


Dynasty Buy/Sell 1-22-20

​ The 2019 NFL season is almost over, but we all know that dynasty fantasy football has no offseason. We're always looking to upgrade those rosters for next year and beyond, and today's show focuses on some guys you might want to buy or sell over the coming months. Our picks include 3 of the top 8 fantasy RBs from this past season, a pair of top-5 WRs and 1 contentious TE. Here's the rundown: Big name to buy ... 4:13 RB help ... 7:13 Wideouts on the rebound ... 15:50 Young TEs to...


Divisional Round DFS 1-10-20

When the entire slate features just 4 games, that means we need to dig a little deeper. That's why you'll find us discussing players such as Allen Lazard, Marshawn Lynch and Gus Edwards as potential options. Of course, we're also looking at which high-priced WRs bring the highest ceilings and which big-name producers you might want to fade. Here's the rundown: Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers ... Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens ... Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs...


Wild Card Round DFS 1-3-20

​ Michael Thomas and Drew Brees. That's what most DFS lineup builds will begin with this weekend. But you'll have plenty more spots to fill, and you'll need to differentiate somewhere. Do high-priced Derrick Henry and or DeAndre Hopkins find spots? Should you run out multiple Bills on the road? Does the sneaky upside lie in Seattle? Let's run down this short slate: QB ... 2:15 RB ... 7:37 WR ... 13:26 TE ... 21:57 Flex ... 26:23 Defense ... 27:37 ​Check out Jared's top picks for...


Playoff Challenge 1-20-20

Fantasy football is always about picking the best players. The NFL playoffs add the challenge of predicting which teams will move on and which will bow out early. On this show, we're talking about who will make a run, who has no chance and which players appear set up to score for fantasy owners. We're also digging into the best ways to build your lineup for the FFPC Playoff Challenge: top plays, contrarian options, big names to consider fading and more. Here's the rundown: Teams to target...


Week 17 FanDuel 12-27-19

​ Ryan Tannehill looks like a good starting point at QB this week, though his popularity might make other paths more attractive. We're not scared of going back to Joe Mixon after last week's disappointment. We just might shy away from Christian McCaffrey one last time, though, because plenty of upside resides elsewhere at the position. You'll need some salary-saving sleepers to fit several top-shelf plays into your lineup, though. Is Kerryon Johnson ready to provide that help? We don't...
