FantasyPros Football Podcast: Start/Sit: Week 2 w/ Jeff Ratcliffe

Sep 12, 2018

Should you consider benching Tom Brady against the Jags?

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.

Jeff Ratcliffe from Pro Football Focus hops on with us as we share our thoughts on which players we would consider either starting or sitting ahead of this week’s matchups. Should Tom Brady owners look for alternative options this weekend (11:49) and is Jay Ajayi a glorified committee back or the bonafide top dog in that backfield (20:26)? Plus, should we panic about Amari Cooper (38:44), is Sammy Watkins already droppable (44:47), and are we overlooking Jack Doyle too much (53:57)?
