FantasyPros Football Podcast: Riskiest Players to Draft w/ Pat Mayo

Aug 4, 2018

Deshaun Watson finished as one of 2018’s top fantasy quarterbacks, but still failed to meet the lofty draft hype.

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.

We’re bringing the Pay Mayo Experience to our latest episode and in today’s show, we’re taking turns naming who we feel are the riskiest players to draft this year. Before we get into that though, Tags is explaining his reasoning behind why he said in another episode that he’d take John Ross over Kenny Golladay (1:40). We’re also giving our thoughts on news about Christian McCaffrey’s workload (6:35), Josh Gordon’s time away from the team (9:30), and what that might mean for Jarvis Landry. Tags kicks things off naming Deshaun Watson as his first risky pick (21:29). Listen in to find out who else gets named including some friendly disagreement on Sony Michel (40:04) and Alex Collins (1:00:13).
