The Wolf welcomes on Pete Davidson (@Rotobahn), founder of Rotobahn.com and host of WEEI Boston Sports Radio’s Fantasy Football show. After hosting many great “advanced analytical” minds, Davidson brings an entirely different, “film-based” approach. Due to previous work as a professional scout, Pete is a master at evaluating players’ abilities and how they fit into different offensive schemes and with their teammates. Though this may be one of our longest pods ever, it’s completely jam-packed with equal amounts of player reports and different fantasy strategies that can’t be missed, including:
Plus, as always, we run Pete through the “No Huddle” offense and find out who he’d take at No.1 overall, his feelings on Todd Gurley, the biggest bargains and busts in fantasy for 2019, and this year’s late round pick that could win leagues.

Picking up the heat from Part 1 of our Bold Fantasy Football Predictions series, The Wolf and Sami are back to bring some Running Back and Tight End fire.

Hallelujah, Training Camp is on the horizon! To usher it in, The Wolf brings you his Bold 2019 Fantasy Football Predictions Predictions featuring Sami of the Draft Room Podcast (@DraftRoomPod).
Though we wanted to hit Bold Predictions for all positions, we only managed to squeeze in QBs and WRs for Part 1… partly because of our loaded analysis, but mainly because things got heated quick. These predictions range from guys we are All-In or All-Out on, with The Wolf and Sami sharing some feelings… and disagreeing on a bunch more. Whether building on one another’s points or debating furiously, we cover a range of topics including:
-Why both feel Kyler Murray has a limitless ceiling and is THE late-round QB to target

- And is Peyton Barber the most undervalued RB in fantasy… and possibly the league?
All this, and so many more scorching takes from Sikkema, make this a must-listen for all Bucs and Fantasy Fans.
*Note - this was recorded pre-draft, but with the Bucs spending only a sixth rounder on offensive talent, almost nothing has changed
Between my No.1 overall pick, arguably my favorite value-QB, and a potential No.1 WR, the Dallas Cowboys boast plenty of fantasy intrigue. This is especially true with new OC Kellen Moore taking over play-calling duties.

The Patriots are always buzzy because.. Well, they’re the Patriots. But even moreso, this offseason has been wild, with huge departures and additions that all carry massive fantasy weight. To break it all down, we welcome on WEEI’s Ryan Hannable for a Dive Record fifth time. We cover all the burning questions, including:

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.

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

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 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.

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.
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.
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.

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?
