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?
