Denny Carter and Kyle Dvorchak join Matt Stroup for a breakdown of our most watchable teams of 2021, with Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and the Chiefs as the no-doubt first choice, followed by Josh Allen and the Bills and Dak Prescott and the Cowboys in the top three. Is this the year that CeeDee Lamb surpasses Amari Cooper as the top option in the Cowboys passing game? Plus, we consider whether Lamar Jackson and the Ravens can get back to their dominant 2019 form, how high the ceiling is for Matthew Stafford in L.A., and our expectations for a Titans attack that has Julio Jones, Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown, but notably lost OC Arthur Smith.
John Daigle, Pat Daugherty and Denny Carter join Matt Stroup to look at some of the outliers in our individual rankings, including why Pat is slightly lower on Matt Ryan than most — and what it could mean for Ryan's fantasy outlook in 2021. Plus, the huge chasm in Daigle and Denny's rankings of Trey Lance, and some drastically different opinions on Chase Claypool coming off his 11-touchdown rookie campaign. We also look at some positive reports on the fast-rising Cam Akers, and injury news we potentially shouldn't ignore when it comes to Amari Cooper and Calvin Ridley.
Pat Daugherty and Denny Carter join Matt Stroup to take a look at the landscape of NFL coaches — and what it means for fantasy football — ranking the best and the worst the league has to offer. We consider whether Sean Payton can salvage a season where there are already questions about Jameis Winston's connection with Michael Thomas, why Sean McVay is ranked ahead of Kyle Shanahan, and whether we can trust Kliff Kingsbury to get the most out of Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins in 2021. Also: a look at some of Urban Meyer's strange decisions, and why Travis Etienne is still an intriguing name heading into summer fantasy drafts.

We look at how the landscape has improved for Clyde Edwards-Helaire after a disappointing rookie season, why Michael Thomas should return to form after a disaster of a 2019 campaign, and whether Courtland Sutton can overcome abysmal QB play as he comes back from injury. Plus, DJ Moore is flashing star potential, Amari Cooper could finally have a ceiling season, and Kyle Pitts is set up for success in a post- (we think) Julio Jones Atlanta — but is his ADP already too high?
Patrick Daugherty, Denny Carter and John Daigle dive into the “running back dead zone,” Rounds 3-6 where you have to make big decisions on uncertain backfields.

We look at Jalen Hurts and a less-than-ideal setup with new head coach Nick Sirianni in Philadelphia, Matt Ryan facing the possibility of playing without Julio Jones, whether Carson Wentz and Sam Darnold have real shots for success with new teams coming off a brutal 2020 season, and why the signs are ominous for Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers heading into 2021.
With the official release of the NFL schedule on Wednesday evening, John Daigle, Pat Daugherty, Denny Carter and Matt Stroup go game-by-game with a way-too-early look at what to expect from Week 1 of the 2021 season. Ranking each game 1-16, we hit many of the high points, including Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs with a point to prove against the Browns, and Dak Prescott in a tough opener against Tom Brady and the Bucs. We also dive into the uglier spots on the Week 1 slate, with Giants-Broncos and Jaguars-Texans among them. Also on this episode: massive question marks at quarterback when the Saints and Packers face off (Aaron Rodgers or Jordan Love? Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill?), and a potentially brutal Raiders team gets a scary Week 1 draw in John Harbaugh, Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.
Patrick Daugherty, Denny Carter and John Daigle discuss the biggest rookie rankings questions of the post-draft landscape. Who is the No. 2 receiver behind Ja'Marr Chase?

We look at the new reality for James Robinson after Urban Meyer invested a first-round pick on Travis Etienne, how Miami's new weapons (in particular Jaylen Waddle) impact DeVante Parker, and what the arrival of Mac Jones means for Cam Newton in New England. Also on this episode: Javonte Williams puts a dent in Melvin Gordon's fantasy appeal, Trey Sermon's arrival in San Francisco further crowds an absurdly deep 49ers backfield, and Ja'Marr Chase in Cincy means bad news for Tee Higgins – but exactly how bad is it?
Patrick Daugherty, Denny Carter and John Daigle roll through the 10 biggest winners of the draft, including Mike Davis, Myles Gaskin, Joe Burrow and Sam Darnold. They also examine the Dolphins’ new-look passing attack while debating the proper ADP for Najee Harris.
