Welcome to the latest episode of the FantasyPros Football Podcast. The show is hosted by Joe Pisapia (@JoePisapia17) and Matthew Freedman (@MattFtheOracle). Together, they offer insight to help your squads.

Wide receivers have taken on more importance in fantasy this year than they ever have before. Joey P., The Oracle, and Matt Harmon (Yahoo! Sports) break down the WR consensus rankings and highlight which players provide the most value at fantasy’s deepest position. Who should go first between Cooper Kupp, Justin Jefferson, and Ja’Marr Chase? Who are the safest borderline WR1s? How should we evaluate polarizing players like Allen Robinson and Chris Godwin? The Pros will tell you!
