FantasyPros Football Podcast: Half-PPR Mock Draft w/ Brandon Funston
Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Bobby Sylvester (@) 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.
Brandon Funston of The Athletic joins us for some fun and we’re mock drafting with Half-PPR settings to give you a look at our thought process when making picks. With the 2nd, 4th, and 5th picks, all three guys start off with running backs (6:14). Brandon gets his guy in the second round with Josh Jacobs (13:30) and we talk more about why he’s the one guy he’s going after in all drafts (55:09). Bobby goes QB & TE with back-to-back picks in the 5th/6th, but is that a sound strategy (25:58)? Will there be enough targets in Houston for all three WRs (33:04)? Devin Singletary could be the guy and LeSean McCoy could be cut (38:50), while Tags does the Vance dance with the situation in Pittsburgh (39:31).
