Let’s face it: Every single fantasy football draft season, we as fantasy gamers all fall in love with that one specific player that we become convinced is gonna go off. Whether it’s the hype or the analysis or the predictions, we’re certain that this player will take us to the fantasy promised land.
And then it all goes to crap, and the player either does nothing or fails to meet any and all expectations. We get thirst-trapped.
For many, the 2018 version of that thirst-trapper was Royce Freeman (sorry Brad). But hey, it happens to us all. People got thirsty for Freeman. So, who are people getting thirsty for this season?
In this episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast, Liz Loza and Matt Harmon identify the players who fantasy gamers are set to be thirst-trapped by (4:30). They include Geronimo Allison, Darrell Henderson, Austin Ekeler, Derrius Guice, and Kenny Golladay, to name a few.
Next, our experts talk about the experience of being at Comic-Con last week, where Marvel revealed a plethora of movies for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Thanos out of the picture, the MCU has a hole where villains should be, but the NFL and fantasy sure don’t.
Yet, where there are villains, there’s the chance for redemption. So, Liz and Matt choose who the football villains of 2019 are and whether they deserve another shot (22:30). Are we to forgive the likes of Corey Davis, Leonard Fournette, Marquise Goodwin, Devin Funchess, and Trey Burton?
Finally, Liz and Matt talk through some player props for the 2019 season (42:00).
