In this podcast we discuss:

Saquon Barkley, RB, NY Giants

The star of the 2018 combine. Barkley is this season’s ‘must have’ rookie in fantasy football and the outlook is far more positive for the offense of the Giants in 2018. Barkley has the work ethic and talent to be a force in the NFL and fantasy.

Rashaad Penny, RB, Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks still await a running back to be the main thrust of the backfield. They took Penny in the first round, but will Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise feature too prominently to allow Penny to have a steady breakout in production?

Ronald Jones, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

With Doug Martin leaving the team for Oakland, does this give nothing but sheer opportunity for Jones to gain full commitment from Bucs to lead this this backfield?

Sony Michel, RB, New England Patriots

The Patriots spent a first round pick on a running back. This is a rarity and you would expect the team to use him as a bellcow in light of this. However, the Patriots are always gameplan minded when it comes to utilizing their backfield. They still hold James White, Rex Burkhead, Mike Gillislee and even Jeremy Hill. Can Michel ever emerge from such a crowd to garner enough week on week value?

All this and much, much, more on The Fantasy Edge…
