Fantasy Football Podcast: ADP Check 5-31-18

May 31, 2018

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 -- Where are rookie RBs going since the NFL Draft?

35:42 -- Why aren't you drafting Dolphins receivers?

41:45 -- Michael Crabtree climbing but still a solid value

43:21 -- Emmanuel Sanders leads the undervalued wideouts

46:34 -- Tight Endszzzzzzzz

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.

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

May 3, 2018

Players covered in this episode include:

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

April 27, 2018


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 RBs already drafted: Saquon Barkley, Rashaad Penny and Sony Michel. Plus, what the landing spots mean for D.J. Moore and Calvin Ridley.

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

April 18, 2018


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 State's Michael Gallup, but not so much on Calvin Ridley. We'll also discuss what matters in projecting dynasty wideouts, a couple of guys who just might be underrated in rookie drafts and why Equanimeous St. Brown is a bigger name than he should be. Oh yeah, and we'll get to Dallas Goedert and the TE group for a few minutes as well.

April 12, 2018

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. That's all in the 2nd half of the show. Before that, we're sorting through the top 6 QBs -- led by Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson.
