Welcome to the latest episode of the Fitz on Fantasy Podcast. The show is hosted by Pat Fitzmaurice (@Fitz_FF). He and his guests will chat about anything from fantasy football to food and pop culture.

As we reach the peak of fantasy football draft season, host Pat Fitzmaurice (@Fitz_FF) welcomes Scott Pianowski of Yahoo (@scott_pianowski) to talk about not only players and draft strategy, but also salary cap strategy.

Should Alvin Kamara be a fade now that it appears unlikely he’ll be suspended in 2022? Scott and Pat are both wary and discuss their reservations. Their RB conversation also includes Derrick Henry, Antonio Gibson, and Dameon Pierce. Scott explains why Adam Thielen is the captain of his All-Boring Team and makes a case for the Vikings receiver.

Scott and Pat talk about golf and the scramble format. Scott shares his new appreciation for Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead. Then it’s a deep dive on salary cap strategy. Scott touts the virtues of salary cap drafts over snake drafts. Should you take a stars-and-scrubs approach in auctions or spend your money in a balanced way? What’s the best strategy for nominating players? Scott and Pat get deep into the auction weeds. Scott explains why he’s reluctant to draft Jalen Hurts, and he and Pat discuss Matthew Stafford’s elbow and the outlook for Allen Robinson.
