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.

Our duo has returned to provide their immediate insight on the NFL Draft. We break down each skill position and analyze the dynasty viability of the most fantasy-relevant rookies. Josh Jacobs (6:13 and 9:22) should receive more volume than any other rookie RB and the Bears appear to have big plans for David Montgomery (14:35). Is N’Keal Harry (23:41) primed to be the top dynasty rookie wideout and will Marquise Brown (30:47) benefit from what projects to be a shoddy Ravens defense? The Cardinals are motivated to give Kyler Murray (43:19) every opportunity to succeed, but will Josh Rosen (45:25) start over Ryan Fitzpatrick right away after being traded to Miami? Was drafting T.J. Hockenson (52:49) eighth overall a wise move for Detroit, and what are our biggest takeaways from the draft outside of the skill position players (57:55)?
