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

We entered Underdog Fantasy’s Best Ball Mania II tournament and analyzed our draft. Throughout the show, we discuss best-ball strategy and our expectations for the players we selected. Why is an RB-heavy strategy preferred when building a best-ball roster (6:45), who has the most immediate and long-term upside between DeVonta Smith (13:13) and Jaylen Waddle (13:54), and what kind of impact should Mac Jones (26:37) have for the Patriots this year?
