We’re having some fun in this latest episode with our friend and current FantasyPros featured writer, Dan Harris. We’re mock drafting from an early, middle and late round pick to give you the full spectrum of which players we like in a PPR draft (11:12).
Dynasty Rankings Rundown (Ep. 74)
Tony Romo’s retiring and now the question is, does he belong in the Hall of Fame (1:02)? We’re discussing all the latest news before jumping into the dynasty rankings and explaining why WRs tend to be ranked higher in dynasty versus redraft leagues (22:42). Is Odell Beckham the clear #1 dynasty receiver (23:48)? Should Cam Newton be ranked lower (27:52)? What about Devonta Freeman (36:49) or Kyle Rudolph (43:05)?

With 18 players being picked, you’ll definitely want to listen in to get your fantasy football fill.
Ep. 71: Early Mock Draft & March Madness
Sure, it’s just March and we’re already starting a mock draft, but we love football so why not? With the recent transactions in free agency, which we’re discussing in detail (Brandin Cooks – 1:45… Martellus Bennett – 12:58…), an impact can already be felt as we go pick-by-pick and analyze our options. Now with March Madness happening, we had to talk some college hoops so we’re joined by special guest, Keith Goldner of numberFire.com, to talk bracket strategy, dark horses, and more ahead of the tournament (43:58).
Ep. 70: Free Agency Winners & Losers
It’s been a busy day with NFL Free Agency and we’re covering the frenzy with our guest, Mike Wright of The Fantasy Footballers. We’ve got every impactful move covered starting with Alshon Jeffery (2:21), the Brock Osweiler fiasco (6:15), and we’re hitting topics as they pop across our screens… Kenneth Dixon suspension anyone (15:50)? Free agency is far from over, but you’ll want to listen in to get all our thoughts on what has transpired up to this point.

Ep. 68: Early 2017 Draft Rankings
The Super Bowl was one for the ages and we’re already looking forward to the 2017 season. We’re excited to have Pat Daugherty of Rotoworld joining us to talk about even more football as we dive into our early consensus rankings available now at FantasyPros.com. We’re going tier by tier as Bobby and Pat talk Le’Veon Bell or David Johnson at #1 (2:57), which guys stand out in each tier, and some intriguing names further down the list (18:56).
Bobby and guest, Dan Harris, discuss who could be the surprise player for the Pats on Sunday (7:35), what to expect from their crowded backfield (8:52), and the heavily debated topic of whether or not Tom Brady is now the best QB ever (12:15). And we can’t talk about this matchup without going into just how good this Falcons’ offense is (17:04). For all of you who are looking forward to the next season already, we’ve got you covered as we make 2018 predictions (25:13) before taking a look at some of the prop bets for this weekend (28:20).
Ep. 66: DFS Lineup Advice – Conference Championship Matchups
We’re taking our final show of the season down to Southern California as Bobby breaks down the weekend slate with Doug Norrie of Daily Fantasy Sports Rankings. With limited options in a two game slate, find out which players you should pay up for.
Ep. 65: DFS Lineup Advice – Divisional Round Matchups
We’re back this week with our Divisional Round DFS coverage. With four games on the slate again, we’re going to name every player that’s worth considering as you build your lineups ahead of kickoff. To help, we’ve got Jared Kwart of FantasyCruncher joining us to go matchup by matchup starting with Seattle heading to Atlanta (2:15) to take on Matt Ryan (3:18), Julio Jones (3:36) and Devonta Freeman (4:39). On the other side of the ball, Russell Wilson (10:37) and Doug Baldwin (11:45) are the offensive leaders, but it’s hard to forget about Thomas Rawls (13:10) after last week. The second game that we’re breaking down has the Texans visiting the Patriots. Outside of C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin (26:31), Bobby and Jared aren’t wasting time on any Houston players, but if you’re wondering which Patriots to use, they’ve got you covered starting with Tom Brady (19:13) and LeGarrette Blount (21:08). The third game features the Steelers at Chiefs (27:15) and you can call it “chalky”, but Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell are without question the studs to use (29:33). To finish out the show, they’re looking at how unstoppable Aaron Rodgers (38:41) is as he heads to Dallas to take on Dak Prescott (40:40) and Ezekiel Elliott (41:24). Don’t miss a second of this player packed episode.
Ep. 64: DFS Lineup Advice – Wild Card Matchups
We’re here with our first ever playoff podcast and Justin MacMahan of Daily Fantasy Insider joins host, Bobby Sylvester to break down the four matchups this weekend. Not all the matchups are pretty, and in some cases, they’re downright ugly, but we’re covering all the big names starting with the G-Men visiting Green Bay (3:56) as the two talk about Paul Perkins (5:07), Aaron Rodgers (7:46), Eli Manning (8:23), Odell Beckham (9:59), Jordy Nelson (11:28), Ty Montgomery (14:17) as well as a few smaller names in Aaron Ripkowski (5:51), Sterling Shepard (13:15) and Geronimo Allison (13:39). Then it’s arguably the worst playoff matchup of the season with the Raiders and Texans facing off (15:05). While there aren’t many appealing plays, hear what Bobby and Justin have to say about Latavius Murray (18:26), Lamar Miller (19:22), DeAndre Hopkins (21:00) and the two Raiders receivers (21:13). The Lions will head to Seattle in a great matchup and you’ll want to hear about why Doug Baldwin (24:17), Golden Tate (27:56), and Anquan Boldin (28:19) could all be solid plays. To close the show, the Steelers should rack up points against the Dolphins (32:51) and it’d be foolish to not have any Steelers in your lineup, namely Antonio Brown (34:04) and Le’Veon Bell (34:44).
Ep. 63: DFS Lineup Advice – Week 17
The Week 17 DFS show features Doug Norrie of DSFR.com and host, Bobby Sylvester. The pair starts with quarterbacks (2:46) and are both big believers in Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson this week. Then they move on to running backs (14:46) where they discuss the controversial Pittsburgh backfield situation and whether it makes sense to fade David Johnson. When they chat about wide receivers (30:18) Jordy Nelson is an easy piece for them to agree on and both Doug and Bobby have cheap wide receivers they are excited about. They close out the show by talking about tight ends (41:05), defense (43:34) and stacks for the main slate (45:22)
