Fantasy sports podcast: Concerns about Steelers players, loading up versus Dolphins

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster runs a pass route Sunday as New England Patriots defensive back J.C. Jackson (left) gives chase in the second half of the game in Foxborough, Mass.

It’s our weekly fantasy sports podcast with Jeff Erickson of Rotowire.

Some people are worried about Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster in fantasy play after Week 1. Jeff tells us why you shouldn’t buy into that concern.

How many Patriots should you play against Miami? And how heavy should you invest in the “anti-Miami” strategy? Those are in-depth topics of conversation this week.

There’s some delicate New England strategy to keep in mind as well. Jeff tells us how to avoid “rules” and “maxisms” when making fantasy plays.

Listen for some Thursday night advice before Tampa Bay versus Carolina. And it has to do with running backs. Plus, we investigate if Mike Evans will have a bounce-back evening.

We get into why Lamar Jackson and Antonio Brown are good plays this week, and moving forward. In fact, Jeff has some trade advice for you concerning A.B.

Believe it or not, there may be some encouraging signs for folks who have Bengals on their roster. We investigate that notion.

Jeff and I agree on one team to select in your knockout pool besides the Patriots.

Lastly, we bemoan the Christian Yelich injury on the baseball front.

LISTEN: Tim Benz, Jeff Erickson talk Steelers players, Patriots players, and the ‘anti-Miami’ strategy
