With only three weeks until the start of training camp, it is time to take another look at the fantasy football landscape, as many drafts occur during this period. Chuck Zodda hosts the June 28 Quick Kicks Podcast, as fellow ITP writer Doug Moore joins him to discuss some of the key ideas to focus on during this year’s fantasy drafts. There are a number of question marks entering the 2016 season, and Doug helps to separate fact from fiction when it comes to fantasy football. Topics this show include:
- The top rookies available in this year’s class and who has the potential to be an immediate contributor on day one (1:57)
- The gap between the top rookie running back and the rest of the pack, and whether this is a close race, or one with a significant amount of distance between these groups (5:19)
- The top wide receiver in this year’s rookie class for fantasy football (7:07)
- Why the gap is smaller between the top rookie receiver and those following him, and where many of these players can be expected to go in drafts (8:38)
- The lack of quality tight ends in this year’s rookie class and whether any of them have the ability to be productive in fantasy this year (10:50)
- Andrew Luck and his potential to provide value for owners after a disappointing 2015 season (13:16)
- The potential for a bounce-back 2016 campaign for Torrey Smith due to some changes in personnel and system from last year (15:26)
- Tight ends who may be able to outperform their 2015 numbers, and how their offenses will look to utilize them in the upcoming season (17:57)
