FantasyPros Football Podcast: Week 1 Rapid Reaction + James Conner’s Breakout

Sep 9, 2018

James Conner’s performance makes it much less likely Pittsburgh will pay Le’Veon Bell

Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. Our Sunday recap show is hosted by Dan Harris (@danharris80) and Mike Tagliere (@MikeTagliereNFL). Every Sunday throughout the NFL season, we’ll be analyzing every game that started before Sunday night and sharing our fantasy takeaways with you.

Opening Sunday has come and gone, and it was one we likely won’t forget for a long time! Joining us as our new Sunday co-host is FantasyPros writer, Dan Harris. Before diving into Sunday’s games en masse, we take a small look at Thursday night’s opener and analyze whether Jay Ajayi’s productive performance alters his season-long outlook (4:34). Is Le’Veon Bell’s return impacted by James Conner’s impressive outing, and where should Conner be ranked moving forward (20:58)? Also, have we been undervaluing DeSean Jackson (35:01) and Mike Evans all along (35:51), how wrong were we about Tyreek Hill (43:38), and can Washington’s offense be a lot more viable for fantasy than we thought (52:47)?
