Preseason Kickoff Market Report:

The fantasy football season is hurtling towards us like Eddie Lacy towards a free buffet of crab rangoon, with Preseason Week 1 officially in the books. Anyone who says, “The Preseason doesn’t matter!” is a true sheep, as Fantasy Wolves consider all possible evidence.


From rapport building, to role development and unexpected usage, to overall team performances and glimpses at new schemes, plenty of important trends emerge that cannot be ignored. The Wolf and Truth read you all the headlines from our Preseason Week 1 Risers, Fallers, and Penny Stocks Recapbefore diving in for a few more in depth  to preview the piece. And yes, we talk about Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin‘s pre-game confrontation (before discussing Benjamin’s sneaky Target Hog upside).

Plus, we tackle a jam packed stock watch featuring:

  • Alshon Jeffery’s injury and what it means for the other pass-catchers in Philadelphia
  • Jerick McKinnon’s injury and his stock now with Alfred Morris in San Francisco — and what Morris himself could bring to the table
  • Developments in the ever-valuable Saints’ backup RB story, which will make it even easier to select Mark Ingram at his steal price.
  • Bears Passing Game Developments — who’s emerging as the top targets, and will Mitch Trubisky’s play allow it to matter?
  • John Brown’s Rising Penny Stock Value
  • Saquon Barkley scare.

Plus, as has become tradition, Roto Joe is back for another round of Tier Jerkers. Here, the boys break down the 3rd Round(ish) RB scene–he and The Wolf rank Christian McCaffrey, Alex Collins, Derrick Henry, Jay Ajayi, and Joe Mixon for your drafting pleasure. Both Joe and Wolf differ vastly in their organization of this tier, so find out where and why certain players are higher or lower.

The pod is wrapped up with a couple of items from the mailbag, including what to do with your 2nd and 3rd Round Picks if drafting No.1 overall, as well as a QB question circling on Jared Goff and Deshaun Watson.

  • Why the Preseason does matter, and what developments you should be tracking

  • How Kelvin Benjamin could be an invaluable Target Hog no one saw coming

  • Why we’re reevaluating our stance on the Bengals offense, and what it means for Joe Mixon and AJ Green moving forward

  • How Jeremy Hill and David Njoku both drip in enormous TD upside

  • The latest on Alshon Jeffery, and what his absence could mean for the rest of this pass-catching corps

  • Why Jerick McKinnon is growing riskier by the day, but still carries monumental upside

  • Who’s emerging as Mark Ingram‘s immediate back up, and why it’s sneakily huge for Fantasy Football

  • How the Bears’ new-look offense has been performing, and who (if anyone) is standing out

  • Why there may just be enough “smoke” surrounding John ‘Smokey” Brown to create some real fire

  • The latest on Saquon Barkley‘s injury scare.

  • How to approach the ever-confusing Round 3 RBs  (Keenan Allen, Davante Adams, Mike Evans, and AJ Green)
