FantasyPros Football Podcast: QB & TE Rookie Rankings

May 9, 2018

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.

Ranking rookie quarterbacks and tight ends can be harder than it seems, especially when you’re in a startup dynasty league and deciding whether you should take an established veteran or one of the up and coming rookies. Fortunately, we’re having some fun chatting with Mike Wright of The Fantasy Footballers to cover all your dynasty startup questions (15:19) as we break down the top five options at the quarterback position (29:26) and top five at tight end (46:38). We’re also getting into C.J. Anderson’s outlook (7:44) and with Coby Fleener being cut, what is Ben Watson’s worth (11:37)?
