The Fantasy Authority Fantasy Football Podcast Episode 34, March 15, 2016.
The NFL off-season is in full swing and moves are happening every day as the NFL free agency period continues. We gave you our initial reactions to the biggest moves last week, so this week we’ll take a deeper look at how the players around the recent additions are effected by it all. There are still a few big name free agent quarterbacks and running backs on the market as well and we’re breaking down where we think they WILL end up and where we think they SHOULD end up.
We start off this episode with a look at former New York Jet’s QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and former Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III. How much value do they offer to the QB needy teams on the market, and what kind of fantasy value do they offer depending on where they land? Colin Kaepernick trade rumors are all the buzz recently as well, so we take a look at potential trade partners, potential trade compensation and fantasy value should he end up with the Denver Broncos.
Arian Foster leads the remaining free agent RB class, joined by Alfred Morris, Ronnie Hillman and Tim Hightower to round out a top 4 that varies greatly in talent. Who do we value most of the remaining backs, where do they fit, and predictions for where they end up. How would Arian Foster look in a Seattle Seahawk uniform?
The Houston Texans made a huge splash signing Brock Osweiler away from the Denver Broncos and adding dynamic RB Lamar Miller on the first day of free agency. How do we feel about these moves now a week later, and how do they effect Texans superstar WR Deandre Hopkins? Could Lamar Miller have over 2000 total yards and top the fantasy football charts this season?
The New York Jets filled their RB vacancy with a 3-headed monster that includes former Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte, former New Orleans Saints power back Khiry Robinson and the re-signing of Bilal Powell. We’ll discuss if Matt Forte is still worthy of RB1 status and what to expect role-wise from each of these backs going into 2016. Will this RB trio turn into another dreaded running back by committee situation?
With big names like Ladarius Green going to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Coby Fleener going to the New Orleans Saints, the TE market is suddenly getting deeper. Kevin and Jeff break down who they think is the most valuable among the lot of newly signed TE’s and where they will be targeting them in this year’s redraft leagues.
