Some Fantasy Analysts Give You Sleepers, Todd’s Wide Awake And Offers You Something Different

August 17th, 2018
In this surprisingly PG-13 edition of The Todd Wright Fantasy Football Podcast, Todd asks you for help in exchange for his. Instead of going down the somewhat cliches list of supposed “sleepers” for season-long drafts, Todd has assembled a list of players that are pretty much just the opposite of that.
What do you call this list? What do you call them? That’s up to you. Meanwhile, Todd has lots of actual player names that fall into this particular category. He’ll offer his thoughts, one per team minimum, on guys who he will not be touching in any of his season-long drafts. They are strictly waiver wire and DFS plays until further notice. You’ll get the entire NFC in this podcast, with the AFC rundown in a future podcast. Remember, Todd answers all your questions at [email protected]. That is also where you can request being an owner in the in-person fantasy drafts powered by Hooters and JoeBucsFan.com that are rapidly approaching on Wednesday, August 22nd at Hooters in Tampa. It is not too late to play with Todd and Ira Kaufman and company, as there will be more invites going out in the next few days.
