Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Joe Pisapia (@JoePisapia17), Mike Tagliere (@MikeTagliereNFL), and Kyle Yates (@KyleYNFL). Together, our trio will offer insight to help your squads.

We break down the NFL schedule release and what it could mean for some players in the first few weeks of the fantasy season. Plus, we take a look ahead at new fantasy standards, key matchups, and how teams will approach a 17-game schedule. When might we see Justin Fields (9:25) take the starting job in Chicago, which RBs appear to have the best fantasy playoff schedules (11:24), and is Kyle Pitts (24:53) drastically overvalued in redraft leagues?
