The Fantasy Authority Fantasy Football Podcast Ep. 96, August 10, 2017.
In this episode, ADP Update: Finding Treasure and Avoiding Disaster, Kevin Steele (@fantasywrath13), Ben Cummins (@BenCumminsFF), Ryan Williams (@RyanAlexander_W) and Anthony Pinzone (@the1andonlypz) revisit positional ADP’s now that draft season is in full swing. Plus, the Jay Cutler effect down in Miami, are we right to hate on “Fat Rob” Kelley and Kevin’s “pro” tips.
New & Noteworthy
- Jay Cutler back, lands in Miami. Does this affect any of the WRs?
- Anquan Boldin signed with the Bills last weekend on one-year deal
- Quincy Enunwa out for the season (neck)
- Will Fuller broken collarbone – Out 6-10 weeks

ADP Update: A Second Look at the Running Backs
- Rawls (11th round) vs. Lacy (7th round) splitting time in preseason but they have a four-round discrepancy in ADP
- Ameer Abdullah is going in the running back two range. Fair or foul?
- Giovani Bernard is going in Round 12 of PPR leagues even with a defined role.
- Spencer Ware in the 5th Round??? Kareem Hunt getting first team reps, seems like a ceiling reach.
- Are we too low on Rob Kelley (close to 10th round ADP) going after Jonathan Williams and around James White, Jamaal Williams
