FantasyPros Football Podcast: Breakout Candidates w/ Justin Boone

Jun 13, 2018

Is Pat Mahomes ready to post top-10 QB numbers?

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.

Justin Boone from theScore.com joins the gang as we discuss some potential breakout candidates this season. We start the show by pondering some intriguing questions, like where should Andrew Luck (3:14) and the Colts wideouts (7:34) be ranked now that Luck is throwing again, whether contract years actually matter for fantasy production (10:09), and what exactly qualifies as a “breakout” season (19:04)? The guys then switch gears and examine why specific players such as Pat Mahomes (22:49), Aaron Jones (34:14), Justin Jackson (41:49), and Kenny Stills (45:24), among many others, are primed to become valuable fantasy assets in 2018.
