Dissecting Josh Allen, Mahomes signs big, and welcome back Damien Williams

Welcome to the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Podcast! Matt Harmon and Dalton Del Don are back to discuss all things fantasy and all things football on the latest episode. [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] You might have heard — just might — that Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and clearly otherworldy being Patrick Mahomes signed the richest contract in sports HISTORY. We imagine that the Chiefs read our team preview and said to themselves, “Yeah, he's pretty good.” But in all seriousness, how should fantasy managers approach the QB Deity and his surrounding team this year in drafts? (01:41) Elsewhere in Chiefs news, could it be that we’ve tossed Damien Williams to the side too rashly? According to his running backs coach, Williams is expected to have a “big year.” Does this mean trouble for super-hyped rookie, Clyde Edwards-Helaire? (07:10) One of the more polarizing players in 2020 fantasy drafts is Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Matt and Dalton weigh in on if the Firebaugh, California native is an inaccurate scrambler who's being overrated in fantasy drafts or a future fantasy MVP.

Dissecting Josh Allen, Mahomes signs big, and welcome back Damien Williams

Injuries, safety and sports in the time of Coronavirus

Welcome to the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Podcast! Yahoo's fantasy analyst Andy Behrens chats with sports medicine physicians Dr. Sara Edwards and Dr. Gregory Horner for an episode that's a bit of a detour from our usual discussions on sleepers, waiver wire picks and receivers who are poised to break out to talk all things injuries and COVID-19. [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] Dr. Edwards is the Associate Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at UCSF, and she currently serves as a team physician for the City College of San Francisco, the University of San Francisco and the Oakland Ballet. Dr. Horner is the leader of the Tri-Valley Orthopedic Specialists’ hand surgery team in Pleasanton, CA and former wide receiver for the Northwestern University Wildcats football team. Andy, Dr. Horner and Dr. Edwards discuss the effects of COVID-19 on sports across the country, how a coronavirus-impacted preseason could mirror the 2011 NFL lockout-affect...

Cam heads to New England, QB strategy, and late-draft targets

Welcome back to a new episode of the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Podcast! Liz Loza is joined by Scott Pianowski to talk all things football. [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] And few things are dominating the football conversation more than news that Cam Newton had reached a deal with the New England Patriots. Our analysts discuss Cam’s outlook with the Patriots as well as his chances of producing in the 2020 fantasy football season. (0:30) We'll also compare the fortunes of Cam Newton in New England with Ben Roethlisberger, another QB coming off injury who can be had late in drafts. (2:30) And we take a look at our favorite picks in the later rounds of fantasy drafts, like Jordan Howard and Terry McLaurin, whose hype train we will continue to pilot until draft day. (12:15) While Coronavirus has put a damper on the usual news parade of players being in the best shape of their lives, Liz and Scott take a look at the fortunes of Evan Engram who ma...

A shorter preseason, the Ravens offense and a Big Ben bounceback?

Welcome back to a new episode of the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Podcast! Liz Loza and Matt Harmon are back to talk all things football. [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] While training camps are expected to open on time, Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports that the NFL is discussing the viability of a full preseason slate, and we know the annual HOF game has been canceled. What will be the impact of a shortened ramp-up period on players? (0:33) Matt Harmon calls Ben Roethlisberger "one of the keys to fantasy football in 2020" since his health directly impacts the value of Juju Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson and James Conner. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, said, "He's comfortable and pleased where he is. Some people who had the opportunity to work with him are impressed and pleased where he is. The medical experts are comfortable where he is and his readiness for 2020." Liz Loza's chats with an orthopedist says the prolonged break for Ben is a li...

Talking money-making quarterbacks and underrated wide receivers

Welcome back to a new episode of the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Podcast! Matt Harmon is joined by Dalton Del Don to talk all things football. Some big football news came in the form of Dak Prescott signing the franchise tag in 2020. Now that he’s locked in for the season, will he be a top 3 fantasy quarterback this year? (1:40) Speaking of quarterbacks that are about to make a lot of money, Matt is working on a series titled, “Players that will tell the story of the season.” And one of the guys he’s looking at is Patrick Mahomes. It’s kind of wild to say this about an MVP and Super Bowl winner, but does Mahomes have an ever higher ceiling that we’ve seen? (7:40) Will a rising tide named DeAndre Hopkins lift all boats in the Arizona offense? (15:40) Elsewhere in fantasyland, Matt lists some underrated wideouts he likes this season (30:36): - Terry McLaurin - Diontae Johnson - Marquise Brown - Sterling Shepard - Anthony Miller - Curtis Samuel With a list of names like this, i...

'Stick to sports,' Coronavirus concerns, and who will fill Deebo's shoes?

Welcome to the Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Podcast! Liz Loza and Matt Harmon return after a brief hiatus with a new episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast to talk Coronavirus, Deebo Samuel's foot injury, and the idea of 'sticking to sports.' You might've noticed that for the past two weeks or so that we haven't had a show. In the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder, and the ensuing protests which we support here, we felt wasn’t right to be joking and just focusing on fantasy football while we're all thinking about and facing the realities of systemic racism in the country. We want this show to be a place where we’re able to talk to each other honestly about what we're thinking, when it comes to fantasy football, but also beyond sports.So if you’re looking for a place where we just stick to sports, this podcast isn’t it. Dr. Anthony Fauci says that there shouldn't be a season without a bubble: "Unless players are essentially in a bubble — insulated from the community an...

'Stick to sports,' Coronavirus concerns, and who will fill Deebo's shoes?

Talking Packers, Bears, and second-tier RB options

Liz Loza is joined by none other than NFL Network’s Adam Rank on the latest fantasy football podcast! [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] Liz and Adam talk all things NFL, including Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones saying he “would love to be a lifelong Packer.” ... Which is interesting, considering the Packers drafted rookie running back, A.J. Dillon. Liz and Adam share their thoughts on this backfield along with how they’d draft Jones this year. (03:25) They’ll also break down where Jones fits in their strategy along with fellow tier 2 RBs Josh Jacobs (11:57), Austin Ekeler (13:01), Miles Sanders (18:00), James Conner (26:10), and Devin Singletary (29:10) . We’ve been talking quite a bit about the Bears on this here pod, and since Adam is a Bears guy, he and Liz give their thoughts on the offense (along with a tweet from Adam stating he thought rookie tight end Cole Kmet was a good draft choice by said Bears!).

WR Rankings and Reception Perception 101

In this edition of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast, we’re flipping the script a bit and having Dalton Del Don throw questions at Matt Harmon and give us a sneak peek at this year’s Reception Perception! [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] But first, Dalton and Matt talk some of the major happenings in the NFL, including the Seattle Seahawks adding their 50th starting running back! Okay, in all seriousness, the Seahawks signed Carlos Hyde, and now their backfield consists of Hyde, Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, and Travis Homer. What does this mean for fantasy? (01:25) And later in the show, Matt Harmon explains the methodology and process behind Reception Perception. For those of you new to Reception Perception, Matt Harmon basically hunkers down while most of us are recuperating from the football season and reviews every route a wide receiver runs to see how successful they are in a wide variety of scenarios. Yes, every. Single. Route. (04:27) He...

NFC West backfields and RB/TE rankings showdown

Running backs are almost always the talk of the town when it comes to early fantasy football projections and predictions, but there’s a pair of NFC West backfields that haven’t really been getting much attention, until now. [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] While the backfield is San Francisco doesn’t have a true every down, big-name workhorse, it’s one that should have tons of potential value. Supposed RB1, Raheem Mostert, recently told the media that he’s bulking up so that he can handle 200+ carries this season. Are we buying the breakout for Mostert? (13:16) Elsewhere in the NFC West, Los Angeles Rams Head Coach Sean McVay said, "We feel we've got three really good backs." "What we wanted to do was get a group that we felt really good about ... This enables us to say, 'We're not necessarily committed to any approach, it's a feel for the flow of the game.” That's not exactly a ringing endorsement to take Cam Akers early in fantasy drafts. ...

NFC West backfields and RB/TE rankings showdown

The importance of continuity in an uneven offseason

With all the uncertainty surrounding the current state of affairs, continuity becomes paramount, and that is especially true for NFL rookies about to begin their first season or for free agents who are about to learn an entirely new system on an entirely new team. We don’t know what this offseason will bring, but one thing is for sure: Players who have continuity on their side are in a better position to succeed — and fantasy managers should take note! Liz Loza is joined by Andy Behrens discuss continuity and much more in the latest fantasy football podcast. [Create or join a 2020 Yahoo Fantasy Football League for free today] In NFL news, The Athletic's Connor Hughes suggests the Jets "can’t wait to unleash Chris Herndon" this upcoming season. Liz and Andy discuss the outlook of the Jets’ offensive pieces, including the returning Herndon, Sam Darnold, Le’Veon Bell, and newcomer Denzel Mims.
