Why should you immediately pick up the Buccaneers D/ST?

Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypro) and produced by JP Gale (@GoJPG). Throughout the NFL season, we’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will offer insight to help your squads.

Matt Lutovsky (@MLutovsky) of The Sporting News joins us to discuss weekly rankings, answer some mailbag and Start/Sit questions, and give bold predictions for Week 2. We begin with the Seahawks backfield and speculate how the Christine Michael/Thomas Rawls dynamic will play out going forward (0:45), which quarterbacks we have ranked higher (2:49) and lower (7:23) than the Expert Consensus, and running backs we like better (12:15) or worse (15:50) than the consensus. Bobby and Matt have a quick discussion about whether to start Sammy Watkins and Travis Benjamin (18:13), before moving on to receivers they are high (21:18) and low (26:18) on for Week 2. On to the listener mailbag where we answer questions about whether you should trade Tom Brady for Blake Bortles (28:30), who between Sammy Watkins and Josh Gordon will play more games this season (29:52), if you should be concerned with Coby Fleener’s Week 1 usage (31:54), if you should buy low on Todd Gurly (33:59), who to drop between Charles Simms, Jerick McKinnon and Tevin Coleman (37:08), and what defenses with a good Week 3 matchup are worth picking up sooner rather than later (38:41). We move on to our start/sit segment and pick two players each from a group of four quarterbacks (40:50), running backs (42:02) and wide receivers (43:25) that we’d start this week. We finish by making bold predictions about which quarterback (45:36), running back (49:04), wide receiver (51:04), and tight end (53:01) has a chance to finish with the most fantasy points at their position for Week 2.
