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.

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.

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?

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.
