The Fantasy Authority Fantasy Football Podcast Episode 55, August 3, 2016.
This week the guys welcome TFA Senior Editor Jennifer Smith back as the newest co-host to the TFA Podcast! In this episode, the crew introduces their first edition of “Draft or Pass”, a new take on mock drafting without the long wait, boring filler content and never-ending episode length.
Kevin, Jeff and Jenn are thrown into a 12-team standard draft starting in the 5th round, with a team that’s clearly utilizing the Zero RB theory, having taken 4 wide receivers to start off their draft. Given a list of players available, will our experts choose to “Draft or Pass” on the RB’s still on the board?
Thinking of using the Zero RB Theory in your draft? Then pay close attention, as the scenario laid out below is a realistic view at who you could be looking at on your draft board when your name is on the clock. Not 100% sure what the Zero RB Theory is? Check out TFA Podcast Episode 52 with John Evans for a full review of what the strategy is, it’s strengths and it’s weaknesses.
