FantasyPros Football Podcast: Buy or Sell the Hype w/ Matt Waldman

Aug 8, 2018

Is Juju Smith-Schuster a burgeoning star or will he fade into fantasy obscurity?

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.

Which hyped up players should you buy into and which players are unjustly overblown? Matt Waldman from Footballguys joins the show to help us answer that very question. Is our excitement for Saquon Barkley warranted (15:08) and are there reasons to be concerned regarding Jerick McKinnon’s talent and situation (22:01)? Plus, will Juju Smith-Schuster transform into a superstar or is a major regression coming (34:56), is Robby Anderson someone worth reaching for (47:47), and what should fantasy owners make of George Kittle and David Njoku (1:01:20)?
