Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypro) and Mike Tagliere (@MikeTagliereNFL). We’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will offer insight to help your squads.

Our good friend Joe Pisapia, author of the Fantasy Black Book series, is back as we break down our favorite breakout candidates for 2020. How high can fantasy owners still feel comfortable grabbing Kenyan Drake (5:09) and what are the risks that come with selecting Raheem Mostert (24:43)? Also, why does Calvin Ridley (32:02) have the potential to be a WR1 in fantasy and what sets Joe Burrow (1:02:05) apart from the average rookie QB?
