On this week’s Fantasy Football Podcast, host Dave Holcomb provides the latest news surrounding the NFL, including an update for top fantasy tight end Rob Gronkowski and quarterback Colin Kaepernick. While “Gronk” still hasn’t practiced since leaving last Monday’s practice, Kaepernick is over his “dead” arm and is in line to start San Francisco’s third preseason game. Holcomb explains how he would handle these situation along with numerous other injury notes from around the league.
The host also deeply analyzes wide receiver, providing listeners with his top 11 tiers at the position. The best wide receivers should be the first players off the draft board, but remember, just because wideouts are the most popular pick that doesn’t mean owners have to pick that position in the first round. Use the tier systems from the other positions to decide which player is the best available at the time.
After his 11 tiers, the host also lists potential sleepers and late-round targets.
The Today’s Pigskin Fantasy Football Podcast with Holcomb has all your latest fantasy football news and stories every Monday Morning during the NFL calendar year. The 2016 season will be Holcomb’s sixth season hosting a weekly NFL podcast and second season as a fantasy football expert at Today’s Pigskin. Starting around training camp, the show runs through all the position rankings to identify those overhyped players and to find those hidden sleepers.
Holcomb also picks out a list of rookies he believes are worth owning in both re-draft and dynasty leagues. Then during the season, each episode includes a full breakdown of the top and bottom performances from every week along with a list of players to add on the waiver wire. Other fantasy football experts from Today’s Pigskin and other networks in the industry also make frequent guest appearances to provide further insight.
The show would love more fan participation. Listeners with questions or comments, please send tweet them to @dmholcomb.
