    Another week goes by, another week without a Julio Jones, Zach Ertz or Aaron Rodgers trade. But have no fear, AJ Dillon's got a name for each of his musclebound legs.Matt Harmon welcomes Pat Daugherty of NBC Sports Edge to discuss Dillon's tree-trunk thighs as well as what fantasy managers could expect out of the running back situations in Green Bay and Detroit (where former Packer Jamaal Williams continues to receive offseason hype).For the bulk of the episode, however, the guys go through Pat's offseason rankings of all 25 returning NFL head coaches. Bill Belichick takes the top spot after a disappointing 7-9 season in New England, but how would the Patriots have fared with a replacement level coach? Can we expect more out of Kliff Kingsbury, Matt Rhule and Joe Judge in the future? Matt & Pat explore coaches at the top and bottom of the ranks before giving their thoughts on 2021's crop of new play-callers.

    It's been no secret that the influx of rushing-upside QBs has flipped the script on how fantasy managers view their quarterback position. MVP seasons from Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson and monstrous numbers from the likes of Josh Allen and Kyler Murray have called into question the strategy of waiting for passers late in your fantasy drafts.Scott Pianowski is joined by Rich Hribar of Sharp Football Analysis to chat about the state of rushing quarterbacks in 2021, Jalen Hurts' upside next season and what tier of QBs fantasy managers should target.Later in the episode, Scott & Rich talk about the recent conundrum of taking Saquon Barkley at third overall in a recent draft. The third pick seems to be a major inflection point. How can fantasy owners manage their risk in such a do-or-die round & is there ever such a thing as a safe bet in the top 10? (15:45)Finally, the guys talk about whether or not you should worry about strength of schedule before doing a little fantasy topic lightning-round on the Broncos, Cowboys, Tua Tagovailoa & more.
