The boys are sullen after a horrendous end to Game of Thrones, so we pour our pessimism into fantasy football by looking at the Biggest 2019 Fantasy Football Losers from the NFL Draft. Though this episode is mostly veteran-centric, we open with two of the highest-graded rookie talents who landed in absolute nightmare homes in new Ravens WR Marquise Brown and Titans WR AJ Brown.  Find out why The Wolf is so low on these two for 2019, as well as scorching takes on:

-How Sony Michel’s stock is plummeting stock with the Patriots returning to their usual committee shenanigans

-The many red flags raised around Derrius Guice, including the greatest of all in the 2019 Draft

-Why Todd Gurley is even a riskier first round bet… and the sneaky major role Darrell Henderson is pegged for

-Why Corey Davis is the most overrated player in fantasy football

-In case you needed more reasons to avoid Jordan Howard, Mike Davis, and LeSean McCoy… we have them.

-Who could steal the invaluable “Steelers RB Handcuff” role?

Plus, we begrudgingly break down the whimpering end of Game of Thrones. Sure, discussing “losers” isn’t glorifying, but these insights can help you steer clear of some major pitfalls your sleeping sheep opponents may miss. Be sure to tune in and let us pave your path to titletown!


May 16, 2019

Though rookies usually get all the attention after the NFL Draft, the fantasy football impacts are often even greater for the veterans. Whether a new addition, like a beefy lineman, boosts a player’s “Surrounding Talent” scores, or a lack of a major move improves a veteran’s “Usage” outlook, a handful of players always emerge with vastly improve fantasy football outlooks.

The 2019 NFL Draft was no different, and The Wolf and Truth are here to break down the 11 Biggest Fantasy Football Risers, including fire takes on:

 

  • Marlon Mack and the fantasy upside that comes with his locked-in “three down” status
  • Damien Williams and his chances at yielding RB1 value without major competition added (outside Carlos Hyde… who’s an enormous bargain in his own right)
  • Kenyan Drake’s chances at realizing his limitless ceiling
  • Peyton Barber as a guy Bruce Arians surprisingly wants to “build around”
  • Leonard Fournette… and why we’re no longer full-out avoiding him
  • Lamar Miller, D’Onta Foreman, and the upside of whoever emerges as the Texans’ top-RB (please be Foreman)
  • Why Joe Mixon and Dalvin Cook are knocking on the door to the elite even harder after the 2019 Draft
  • Devonta Freeman and the sneaky “unsexy upside” he now drips in

 

The Fantasy Football Stock Market is finally settling, and you can’t miss the Veteran Risers who you should now be targeting.


May 14, 2019

The 49ers were among 2018’s most disappointing teams, yet they still boast plenty of fantasy football intrigue in 2019. To break down San Francisco’s fantasy products, we welcome on Grant Cohn (@GrantCohn), 49ers Insider for the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, for the third time. Per usual, his takes are bold and scorching, and could again benefit fantasy owners huge. These include:

  • Coming off a torn-ACL, What will Jimmy Garoppolo bring to the table? Is he truly franchise material, and what can fantasy owners expect if he strings together 16 games?
  • With new weaponry in Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd, how will targets shake out in San Francisco? Is Dante Pettis still as sexy of a sleeper, or could a rookie (or someone deeper) steal his spotlight?
  • Is this backfield the true three-headed nightmare it appears to be? Which of Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, and Matt Breida make the best fantasy selection?
  • Could George Kittle be even better in 2019? What major red flag should fantasy owners be sure to remember?
  • Who is Rich Scangarello, and what will he be bringing to the Broncos as an OC?
  • Will the 49ers rebound after their hideous season, and what can we expect for a record?

Cohn again brings the heat, and this 49ers Preview is must-listen material for fans of the team or fantasy.

May 8, 2019

The Arizona Cardinals made one thing clear during the 2019 NFL Draft: they are ALL in on Kliff Kingsbury and his Air Raid Offense. This scheme has been a points factory in college for years, and we bring on Washington State coach Drew Hollingshead to go deeper than ever before.

Hollingshead, who played under Kingsbury at Houston and now coaches with Mike “Air Raid Godfather” Leach at WSU, can anticipate Kingsbury’s innovation as well as anybody. The Wolf of RSJ picks his brain for nuggets on this schemes staples, Kingsbury’s trends, how this newly stacked weapons cabinet all fit in.

In this exclusive interview, you’ll learn:

-The philosophy and core staples of the Air Raid Offense

-If Kingsbury will be truly “All-In on the Air Raid”

-Why Kyler Murray went No.1 Overall, and why he’s perfect for Kingsbury’s attack

-How both the veterans (Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk) and new additions (Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler) will all be used… and who should rack up the best numbers

-Why past fantasy megastar David Johnson could return to his dominant RB1 workhorse ways as Kingsbury’s offensive centerpiece

-If the line will lock down the Air Raid’s sky-high potential

Air Raid access doesn’t get more “insider” than Hollingshead. Any football fan -- college, NFL, and especially fantasy -- should go inside on this exclusive episode of “On the Fantasy Beat.”

May 2, 2019

- David Montgomery’s three-down potential… or if Tarik Cohen will keep him capped
- Miles Sanders and the chance he bucks Doug Pederson’s committee trends
- What Darrell Henderson signals for Todd Gurley, and just how valuable of a handcuff he could be
- DK Metcalf’s surprising fall, and his value with the Seahawks
- N’Keal Harry and the fantasy dreamboat situation he’s landed in with the Patriots

Apr 30, 2019

The 2019 NFL Draft has come and gone, sending seismic waves through the Fantasy Football Universe. Next week, we’ll breakdown all the Draft-Day Impacts on NFL Veterans. But today this is all about the rookies.

Unlike most rookie-centric shows that analyze from a dynasty lens, The Fantasy Fullback Dive is all about Redraft. Thus, we go through The Wolf’s Top 10 Rookie Rankings of 2019, analyzing the players and landing spots that will be most impactful this season, and not future years. In the process, we cover:

Josh Jacobs and David Montgomery’s outlooks as likely three-down horses with the Raiders and Bears respectively.

N’Keal Harry’s fit with the WR-needy Patriots, and why Kyler Murray could be a Day One Fantasy Force in Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid.

How DK Metcalf’s insane physical gifts will be maximized with Russel Wilson and the Seahawks

How Miles Sanders may be talented enough to buck the Eagles committee trends.

Can Mecole Hardman fill the Tyreek Hill role in Kansas City, and just how high is Parris Campbell’s upside with the Colts?

Plus, why is Darrell Henderson the best handcuff in all of fantasy football, and could TJ Hockenson really be the “Next Gronk?”

All this, plus a little GoT banter at the end, make this a can’t miss lead-block towards your 2019 Fantasy Football title.


Apr 23, 2019

The NFL Draft is only days away, and the Fantasy Football fallout is always massive. To get you primed and ready, we bring on Trevor Sikkema (@TampaBayTre) of The Draft Network (@DraftNetworkLLC). We start with the QBs, discussing Kyler Murray and what he’ll bring to the Cardinals… I mean, wherever he lands.. And preview the rest of this weak overall class. Then, Trevor breaks down the always fantasy-relevant rookie RBs, analyzing what Josh Jacobs brings to the table, and what names to monitor after him, including this year’s “Alvin Kamara” style sleeper. Plus, is DK Metcalf for real? Who’s atop Sikkema’s rookie WR board, and what “slot sleepers” could dominate right from the start? And is this the greatest TE class in history… and who’s the preferred option between Iowa teammates TJ Hockenson and Noah Fant?  Find out all this, plus Sikkema’s biggest draft day sleeper and boldest predictions, in this can’t-miss interview.

Mar 27, 2019

Here at The Fullback Dive, we’re not going to wait until August to go “All-In” for our fantasy football predictions. Just like with Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill last January, there’s a handful of players we feel so strongly about, we’re willing shoving all the chips in already.

Some names, like Baker Mayfield, Dalvin Cook, and OJ Howard won’t surprise long-term listeners. But what other QB can you draft as your backup, but receive serious Top-Five upside from? Which four breakout WRs will The Wolf own in every single league? Which backfield is going to yield a Top-7 RB, but only cost you a mid and late round pick? And which two 100+ ADP Tight Ends could be this year’s George Kittle?

All this, plus a breakdown of the massive fantasy implications of Rob Gronkowski’s retirement and Jared Cook’s move to the Saints, make this an absolute must-listen.


Mar 15, 2019

We always compare Fantasy Football to a Stock Market, and that’s never more apparent than Free Agency. Fantasy Football Values are now all over the place after a crazy 2019 NFL Free Agency.  We open with Fantasy Risers, discussing the Tampa Bay receiving corps with massive vacated volume, Mark Ingram’s value now as a Raven, Latavius Murray’s surging upside in New Orleans, and Josh Allen’s Year 2 Upside, along with some other Honorable Mentions.

Then, we turn to some Free Agency Fantasy Fallers. Are people overlooking Carlos Hyde’s impact on Damien Williams? What should we make of the three-headed nightmare San Fran is becoming now that Tevin Coleman has arrived? Is Derrius Guice still set to “never leave the field” with the corpse of AP returning? Plus, why are Golden Tate, Gus Edwards, LeSean McCoy, and Tyrell Williams all falling in our eyes?

Last but not least, we hit the Fantasy Penny Stocks. What should we make of Mike Davis in Chicago? Can Donte Moncrief ever realize his true ceiling? Who will be Case Keenum’s next “Slot Slut”? Plus, some rapid-fire takes on Devin Funchess, Breshad Perriman, Maurice Harris and Bruce Ellington bring an All-Time Podcast home. You won’t find a more jam-packed, bold Fantasy Free Agency Breakdown than this, so follow this crucial offseason lead block to the promised land.


Mar 14, 2019

Odell Beckham, Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell, Oh My! In less than a week, all three of these fantasy football megastars have found new homes, and the implications are massive -- both for themselves, their new teammates, and the ones they leave behind.

What’s Beckham’s new value catching passes from Baker Mayfield instead of Eli Manning? How explosive can this team be, and what’s Mayfield’s value after all this? What happens to Saquon Barkley and the Giants now?

And how about Antonio Brown now in Oakland -- is his value ruined? Why could he be the same fantasy megastar we’ve loved under Jon Gruden? Who would we rather have -- JuJu Smith Schuster or AB? Who else could gobble up the massive Air Yards now available in Pittsburgh?

Lastly - Le’Veon Bell is now on the Jets. What is his value in this new home? Is there actually some sneaky upside with Adam Gase calling the shots, even after the horrible Dolphins’ backfields these last few years? Could the Jets be building a sneaky juggernaut?

All this and more on a can’t miss episode about some of 2019’s most important fantasy talents and their new homes.

 

Mar 8, 2019

While most 2019 NFL Combine breakdowns will laser in on the rookie performances, true fantasy football fans know the true value lies in the coach and GM interviews. Thus, The Wolf and Truth return to breakdown the meaningful “Combine Coachspeak.” Wolf has sifted through over 40 interview transcripts to find the 16 nuggets that will truly matter in 2019. This jam-packed fantasy football podcast covers all you need to know.

Why are Marlon Mack, Robby Anderson, David Johnson, Gus Edwards, Dante Pettis, and Damien Williams rifling up The Wolf’s Big Board? Which huge-upside RBs may have their ceilings capped by inexplicable committees?  Plus, why do Chris Herndon, Christian Kirk, Elijah McGuire, Ito Smith, and maybe even *puke* Peyton Barber drip in Penny Stock upside?

Mar 4, 2019

Punctuated by the Cardinals hire of Kliff Kingsbury, the “Air Raid” offense is slowly but surely making its way into the NFL. To teach fantasy football owners all they need to know about this high-powered attack, we host Washington State University quality control coach Drew Hollingshead (@WSUCoachDrew). Coach Drew been learning under “Air Raid Guru” Mike Leach for years now, and even played for Kingsbury in Houston. Simply put - he knows the Air Raid better than nearly everyone.

 

First, we paint the general picture: what are the staples of this Air Raid attack? How are the different weapons used, and what does an offense need to succeed? Why has it been so slow to transition to the NFL, and will it work at this level?  Is it here to stay?

 

Then, we dig into Kingsbury and the Cardinals specifically. Will this offense actually help David Johnson? Can Larry Fitzgerald still get it done, or is Christian Kirk the better bet? Plus, will Todd Monken continue to bomb the NFL in Cleveland, and what does this mean for Baker Mayfield?

 

This is as close to the inside of an Air Raid attack you can get, so gain an edge few in fantasy football will have! Hollingshead is fantastic, and this interview is crucial for all NFL fans wanting to learn more about the newest attack they’ll see for years to come.

In easily our most rage and expletive filled show yet, The Wolf and Truth purge themselves of awful, playoff-costing fantasy football beats…. And then bring you all the Week 13 Risers, Fallers, and Waiver Wire Penny Stocks you MUST know before your fantasy playoffs. Before the usual rundown, we breakdown all the insane news surrounding Mike McCarthy and Kareem Hunt, and the fantasy implications that come with both. Then...

We dive into Tarik Cohen’s soaring value and record-setting Sunday, and discuss how high he belongs both on Rest of Season and 2019 Big Boards. We break down Philip Lindsay -- 2018’s leading canidate for Waiver Wire Pick Up of the Year -- and yet another massive Sunday.  We break down a brutal list of fallers (3 of who personally violated The Truth), including Aaron Jones, David Johnson, and two former QB1s who’ve become essentially unstartable. And for you Waiver Wire Hunters, we’ve got a loaded list of low-owned options who can bolster the squad for a playoff run, including hard-hitting takes on Justin Jackson, Dante Pettis, and the Ravens backfield (behind The Bus). Plus, Sunday saw a James Conner scare, as well as AJ Green and Greg Olsen’s seasons end. Needless to say, the fantasy implications are absolutely massive after a wild Week 13, and you won’t find a podcast that covers it better (or drops more f bombs) than the Fantasy Fullback Dive. Just like James Develin, come plow into the end zone for a season-winner here.
