Fantasy Sports podcast: Melky Cabrera’s hot start, NFL Draft impact

Tim Benz
Pittsburgh Pirates’ Melky Cabrera, right, gets congratulations from Pablo Reyes after hitting a two-run home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers during the second inning of a baseball game in Los Angeles, Sunday, April 28, 2019.

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

This week, we look at which draft choices could impact the fantasy football world. Kyler Murray leads the way. Josh Jacobs should help the Oakland Raiders. Those tight ends from Iowa could be worth a pick. And the New England Patriots may have a steal late in the first round with N’Keal Harry.

Elsewhere, the Tyreek Hill situation in Kansas City is going to pinch dynasty owners, but Mecole Hardman could offset that.

Baseball-wise, Corey Kluber’s injury could be a long term pinch for fantasy owners everywhere. But other ace pitchers are struggling, too.

Then there is the hot start of Melky Cabrera. He’s become this year’s Corey Dickerson in Pittsburgh, because of no Corey Dickerson.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
