Early Draft Bargains + Edelman Replacements w/ Jeff Ratcliffe

Jun 11, 2018

Which wideout will step up the most while Julian Edelman is suspended?

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.

Pro Football Focus’ Jeff Ratcliffe joins the show as we discuss which players are bound to shoot up draft boards before most drafts are underway. But first, we dissect some Patriots news as we project which wideout would get the most targets in Julian Edelman’s absence (7:30), and then decipher whether there’s any merit to the Rob Gronkowski rumors (16:19). Everyone agrees that fantasy owners are far too low on Jameis Winston and his receivers (24:01), and while Kerryon Johnson’s ADP should climb as well, his upside is far from limitless (36:48). Plus, Geronimo Allison may be the biggest bargain in drafts right now (41:50), but is Josh Gordon really being undervalued, and how many targets can we expect him to receive (57:19)?
