The Fantasy Edge: Backfield and Receiver Situations

The Fantasy Edge

Backfield and Receiver Situations

Giving you the edge for your fantasy football team…

In this podcast we discuss:


Baltimore Ravens

With the suspension to Kenneth Dixon and the acquisition of Danny Woodhead, what are the fantasy options going to be with the Ravens? Is Terrance West going to force a committee? What about changes in the offensive line?

Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota draft Dalvin Cook to help revive the bottom rushing offense of the Vikings in 2016. What is the role of Latavius Murray? Can their offensive line strength be enough to lift Minnesota from the bottom.

Washington Redskins

A competition exists for early down carries on the Redskins between Samaje Perine and Robert Kelley. Who wins the battle? How does Chris Thompson hinder the ceiling of either player?

Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Mixon is making strong increases in ADP throughout this off-season. What will the new Bengals backfield look like? Will Gio Bernard’s return settle things back into the dogmatic RBBC Marvin Lewis has structured in the past?


LA Chargers

The loss of Mike Williams does no harm to the Chargers heavy receiving corps. Questions remain about Keenan Allen and his ability to overcome injury. Will this be his season to return WR1 value? what about Tyrell Williams and the rest?

New England Patriots

It looks like the “EdelGronk” offense is changing with the acquisition of Brandin Cooks. Are we seeing a return to the Randy Moss and Wes Welker type offense the Pats had in the late 2000s? We see some interesting fits with Chris Hogan and others. What is Belichick up to now?

Carolina Panthers

Is Kelvin Benjamin a bust? Is Devin Funchess finally due for a breakout? What about the newcomer Curtis Samuel? How will Cam Newton adjust to this changing offense?

Pittsburgh Steelers

Are the Steelers just too one dimensional in the passing game? Is Antonio Brown too dependent on Ben Roethlisberger compared to other receivers like Martavis Bryant on the team?

All this and much more on The Fantasy Edge…
