FantasyPros Football Podcast: Early 2019 Rankings + Sleepers & Playoff Predictions

Jan 2, 2019

Where should fantasy owners select Travis Kelce in 2019 drafts?

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.

The crew shares their initial thoughts on their 2019 fantasy football rankings. Together, they discuss the top options at each position, what sleepers they aim to select in drafts, and which teams will advance through each round of the NFL playoffs. How might the recent news regarding Antonio Brown (8:43) affect his draft stock, should fantasy owners still expect Christian McCaffrey (22:08) to handle the same workload next year, and how high should Travis Kelce (24:17) be taken? Is Aaron Rodgers (36:05) primed for a huge rebound, does Chris Godwin’s (47:04) situation add to or take away from his sleeper status, and which teams do we pick to win every playoff game (54:47)?
