Liz Loza and Matt Harmon are joined in this episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast by a familiar face (and very familiar voice), the Big Noise himself, Brad Evans!
Before they can get to the regularly scheduled program, Liz, Matt and Brad have the great David Montgomery debate of 2019 (1:00). Friendships will be tested. Minds will be opened. Chicago running backs will be discussed.
Next, they dissect one of the looming stories of fantasy draft season: The major holdouts of Melvin Gordon and Ezekiel Elliott (8:45). We already went through a tough year (or lack thereof) with Le’Veon Bell last season, and nobody wants to deal with that again.
So, our experts discuss how to manage holdouts in fantasy. As the holdouts cause the running backs to fall in drafts, when is it the right time to scoop them up?
Speaking of running backs, Liz, Matt, and Brad discuss the runners of Round 1 (19:45). How many should go in the round? Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and David Johnson seem like virtual locks, but what about the likes of James Conner, Melvin Gordon, Le’Veon Bell, Joe Mixon, Nick Chubb, Dalvin Cook — and even Todd Gurley?
Our experts finish up by previewing the AFC North Cleveland Browns (26:45), Baltimore Ravens (31:20), Pittsburgh Steelers (38:10) and Cincinnati Bengals (49:10).
