    Paying down for Jimmy Garoppolo killed us last week. Can we still pay down for a QB this week? Or should we focus on the QBs in the Seahawks-Bills matchup.

    ​​We're talking about Bills WR Stefon Diggs once again on Episode 3 in our "What I Got Wrong" series. This time Mike Tagliere ( https://twitter.com/MikeTagliereNFL?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor ) of Fantasy Pros joins us to try to talk about betting on talent. We're also taking another shot at the season perhaps we should have foreseen for Chargers WR Keenan Allen. But before we get to those guys, Mike leads us into tackling the Bengals' passing game. Was A.J. Green the kind of "miss" that we shouldn't regret in our fantasy football drafts? ​ Check out Episode 1 with JJ Zachariason ( https://www.draftsharks.com/article/podcast--guest-jj-zachariason-2-9-21 ) and Episode 2 with Mike Clay ( https://www.draftsharks.com/article/podcast--guest-mike-clay-2-10-21 ).

    We've been interacting with Mike Clay for years, and he's long ranking among the most respectable fantasy football prognosticators. So he was a natural fit for our "What I Got Wrong" series ( https://www.draftsharks.com/features/format/podcast ). We're looking at Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen, the resurgence of Aaron Rodgers and whether it was actually wrong to like Kenyan Drake. We'll also discuss D.K. Metcalf, Will Fuller, T.Y. Hilton, Tyler Higbee and Chris Herndon ... as well as some general fantasy football draft strategy along the way.

Expensive QBs look attractive on both DraftKings and FanDuel, but we also have some lower-prices favorites.

    ​ Derrick Henry and Alvin Kamara run toward Sunday with huge upside ... and huge salaries. Can we find a way to fit both into our lineups, though? It'll take mining for values at other positions, but we have some options at WR and TE -- as well as RB for that flex spot. Plus, you'll find multiple defenses at nice prices going up against backup QBs. This should be a fun slate to close out the regular season.
