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.

Jared Smola from DraftSharks returns to discuss which players he ranks much differently compared to our Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR). After that, we go divisional once again and analyze every important skill player in the AFC South. Where should Tyreek Hill (3:02) be selected now that he will not be suspended and what does that mean for Sammy Watkins (6:26) and Travis Kelce (8:29)? The guys later debate Tyrell Williams’ (25:04) value in Oakland and explain why they don’t expect elite numbers from Drew Brees (31:30) this season. Which Indy WR (47:06) will have the most fantasy relevance outside of T.Y. Hilton, can the Texans support three viable fantasy receivers (55:07), and is Leonard Fournette’s (1:05:04) upside derived more from his volume or his talent?
