FFDP POD: Week 1 Is Here!

After a very long build up, Week 1 of the 2016 Fantasy Football Season is upon us! Conor and I were both crazy busy this week and just couldn’t find a time to get together to record. Real life is so annoying. Doesn’t it know that the season is starting? So I recorded a shorter episode of the FFDRAFTPREP Fantasy Football Podcast for the week and talked about setting lineups, choosing who to start when torn between two guys and why I think it’s prudent to wait at least a couple of weeks before making trades. I also ran through the teams that we will be managing on the pod. As a reminder, our idea is to walk listeners through the in season managerial decisions we will be making for these teams as opposed to just simply talking about our teams. I think this will be helpful for beginner players and provide some insight into the decision making process I employ. The draft is only half the battle. The regular season is at least equally, if not more, important. I’ve listed the rosters of these teams below. One is a prototypical Zero-RB team. The other was drafted to reflect more of a haphazard less focused configuration. This team will likely need a lot of work and attention as the season moves along. As such, we’ll be using this team as an example for thinking through who to drop, how to play the waiver wire etc. and things that we can do to make it better each week.

Check out the episode here! Also, if you’re enjoying the show it would be awesome if we could get a couple of reviews on itunes. Thanks!
