Fantasy sports podcast: Last-minute tips for your football draft
Got your fantasy football draft this weekend? Mine is next week. And I’m getting ready by taking advice from my main man in the business, Jeff Erickson of Rotowire.
The Melvin Gordon and Ezekiel Elliott conundrums are wreaking havoc on draft boards. We figure out when it’s the right time to risk those players will show up.
Also, tight end depth gets tricky fast. Jeff tries to navigate you through those waters.
A lot of Steelers fans may be confronted with the moral dilemma of choosing Antonio Brown. Many fantasy players may not want to root for the guy. At all. Under any circumstances. If so, Jeff gives you a few comps who may be just as good for your team.
I get the feeling fantasy drafts this year are going to make owners feel a lot more secure in Rounds 2 through 7 than at the top. We’ll see if Jeff agrees.
There is some baseball talk, too, specifically about the long-term arm concerns of Jameson Taillon and Chris Sale.
Then we wrap up by discussing the ultimate medicine for any struggling fantasy baseball owner.
It’s when your players get to face the awful Pirates pitching staff.
