The Fantasy Authority Fantasy Football Podcast Episode 35, March 22, 2016.
The bulk of NFL Free Agency is out of the way and fantasy players anxiously await the NFL Draft, still over a month away. We refuse to lie around dormant! This episode features a quick look at how free agent RB and WR free agent signings have performed over the past three years. Plus, we break down some of our very early 2016 breakout players.
Free agency is such a huge topic every off-season, fans get super excited for their teams shiny new additions with delusions of a Super Bowl on the horizon. So we’re taking a glimpse at how the biggest name free agents performed in their first year with their new teams. Remember Mike Wallace signing with the Dolphins? How about Rashard Mendenhall with the Cardinals? We think you’ll be surprised at just how poorly free agents have performed.
Every year we see more rookie players become instant stars than ever before, but what about the guys who didn’t get the chance to fully show off all that they can be? Guys who got stuck behind a veteran, suffered through injuries or came on late. What about the third year players? Guys who NFL decision makers often expect to reach their full potential are often easily forgotten in the fantasy world.
Here at The Fantasy Authority, we’re like elephants, we never forget! We break down some of the hottest names from around the web, like Miami Dolphins WR Devante Parker and Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller. Plus, we dive into some lesser known names you’re probably sleeping on, such as Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham.
