Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard join Will Brinson on the Pick Six Podcast to break down the draft from a fantasy perspective by Will Brinson @WillBrinson 32s ago • 2 min read It's May 2 and in the last 24 hours I participated in my first fantasy football draft. Hi, my name is Will and I have a problem. JK, it's my job! In fact, in this case I was defending a championship, as we do a May draft that's featured in our CBS Fantasy magazine. (I won last year after going Ezekiel Elliott-Todd Gurley-DeAndre Hopkins. If I was half as smart in August as I am in May, I'd get some predictions correct.) It's a great barometer not only for where fantasy drafts stand, but also how the rookies who were taken in the 2018 NFL Draft are viewed from a fantasy perspective.But simply watching a draft unfold isn't enough. Oh no. We needed the services of Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard, both senior fantasy writers on our award-winning CBSSports.com staff (not to … [Read more...] about Podcast: Where should you draft Saquon Barkley, best rookies for fantasy football drafts?
0 of 10 Tom Pennington/Getty Images As fans cheered and booed the decisions made throughout the 2018 NFL draft, savvy fantasy football owners made note of the potential winners and losers as a result of the selections. Fantasy drafts won't swing into full force until late summer, but it's never too early to stay updated on backfield situations with committees and workhorse ball-carriers. Head coaches will initially lean on a stopgap veteran quarterback before turning the reins over to a rookie signal-caller. However, there's one passer who is more likely to see the field than anyone else at the position. Which wide receivers landed in ideal or nightmare spots? We will go through fantasy football winners and losers as well as present takeaways from the 2018 draft. 1 of 10 Ronald Martinez/Getty Images The New York Giants made running back Saquon Barkley the No. 2 pick in the draft. A player at that position hasn't been selected this high since … [Read more...] about 2018 NFL Draft: Biggest Fantasy Football Winners, Losers & Takeaways
With NFL training camps set to open later this month, fantasy football geeks across the globe have already started research for the upcoming season. For those individuals looking for a bit of help or just another point of view, here’s a look at ‘sleepers’ at each position and a bit of analysis on why they could have a breakout year. Having a top-notch quarterback is imperative. There’s nothing like having Tom Brady or Matt Ryan in a starting line-up, but for those picking late in the first round or waiting until a bit later to select a signal caller, Tennessee Titans third-year leader Marcus Mariota could be a steal. The former Heisman Trophy winner had a stretch in 2016 that had him as an elite fantasy option. This season the offensive line should be improved and the addition of wide receivers Eric Decker and Corey Davis could make this one of the most potent scoring teams in the league. Running backs were once the most important aspects of the game, and while … [Read more...] about NFL Fantasy Football: Top sleepers for 2017 season
