Welcome to 25 Yards Later, Sports Obsessive’s fantasy football podcast! By the time you’re reading this, we will have had our first regular season game of the year! We made it, fantasy fans! You spent all offseason researching and preparing for your drafts, but now it’s time to set your lineups. Do you know what to do? That’s why we’re here.
We start with some of the news that has broken since our last episode, including Austin Ekeler’s injury, updates to Curtis Samuel and Evan Engram, and the evolving Ravens backfield situation (which is so in flux that we had to record an addendum updating Gus Edwards’ injury). Then, we check in on our BFFs (Best Fantasy Friends), before examining some tricky start/sit decisions. Finally, we preview two games with major fantasy implications: Packers vs. Saints and Cardinals @ Titans.
As always, we have a lot of questions on our minds. How does Jameis starting for the Saints affect the other weapons? Is there anyone worth starting on the Packers outside of Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, and Aaron Jones? What offseason fantasy darling is surprisingly back from injury without anyone noticing? What do we make out of the Cardinals’ backfield? Can you depend on Derrick Henry in a shootout? Is Maxx Williams a real person? Find out our answers to these questions and more in this week’s 25 Yards Later!
