Frank Gore

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

Week 1 of football is here! We’re running through our weekly rankings and going position-by-position, starting at QB (6:58), then moving onto RB (21:08), WR (34:51), TE (52:34) and wrapping up with defenses (58:32) as we name which players we intend on starting and sitting. We’re also discussing the Ezekiel Elliott decision (3:32) and will touch on all the relevant injuries that’ll affect your lineup decisions.
