Oct 28, 2021

Welcome in Slumpbusters! On this episode we have special guest James Puopolo of the Bota Sports Podcast. James, Ju-Ju & Drew breakdown some of the biggest headlines affecting your fantasy football team. Who are some week eight streamers worth targeting? Should you be concerned about upcoming backfield splits? We answer these questions and more. 

Quarterbacks (7:00): Lamar Jackson will be on bye in week eight, who are some potential lineup fill ins for the former MVP? Deshaun Watson's name has come up once again in the trade market. Which potential trade destination is best for Watson's value, Carolina, Philadelphia or Miami? Jalen Hurts has been one of the best redraft quarterbacks in 2021 but should dynasty owners use this as their sell now opportunity? Carson Wentz has been playing at an elite level for the Colts recently, is he a Top-10 quarterback moving forward? #FantasyFootball

Running Backs (20:00): Myles Gaskin has spurned his fantasy owners with elite performances on benches everywhere. Is Gaskin finally going to be a reliable fantasy asset moving forward? D'Ernest Johson made the most of his opportunity with both Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt out of the lineup. Will Johnson still have a role with Chubb returning against the Steelers? What about Khalil Herbert with the expected return of David Montgomery? The New England Patriots had three Top-13 running backs in week seven but who is getting the touches in week eight? #FantasyFootballAdvice

Wide Receivers (32:00): The Green Bay Packers locker room has seen a spike in COV-19 cases. Meaning Aaron Rodgers will be without pass catchers Allen Lazard and Davante Adams. Is there any value in Randall Cobb or other Packers pass catchers? Is it time to cut Allen Robinson, Tyler Boyd and Odell Beckham Jr.? Can Jarvis Landry be a reliable fantasy receiver rest of season? #DailyFantasySports

We close out the show with a brief recap of National Tight End Day, streaming DST and surprisingly some kicker news. Enjoy!
