Zero WR Theory – Episode 53

David Johnson, RB Targets

The Fantasy Authority Fantasy Football Podcast Episode 53, July 20, 2016.

On this week’s show we welcome thefantasyauthority.com contributor Alexis Chassen to the show to talk Zero WR Theory, also known as the Robust RB strategy. This strategy has been commonly used across fantasy football drafts for years, only recently acquiring an actual name with the emergence of the Zero RB Theory. Kevin, Jeff, Anthony and Alexis break down what the strategy entails, and dive head first into some tips and tricks for tackling it in your next draft.
