Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Bobby Sylvester (@). Throughout the NFL season, we’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will offer insight to help your squads.
We welcome Justin Boone (@justinboone) of theScore.com to discuss Week 1 of the NFL season. We start with the Vikings trade for Sam Bradford and how that impacts Week 1 along with the team’s fantasy value moving forward (2:13). We also take a look at how the Eagles offense changes after the trade (6:42). Moving on, Bobby and Justin examine running back committee battles for the Chiefs (10:02), Ravens (12:38), Seahawks (14:16) and Redskins (18:14). With Week 1 upon us, we delve into the weekly rankings and discuss over and undervalued quarterbacks (23:35), running backs (28:06) and wide receivers (34:13). Game scripts are a topic of our Week 1 discussion, and Bobby asks Justin which players will benefit the most from their team’s initial matchup (39:31), and who will suffer from their team’s matchup in Week 1 (46:14). We finish by asking Justin the one matchup he’s targeting for immense fantasy production in the first week of the season (49:54).
