Introducing the new cast of the Super Flexible podcast! Travis Rasmussen (@TravisNFL) and James Koutoulas (@DFF_Psychic) make their debut on the show, joining John and sharing their very different fantasy football experiences. The new guys waste no time attacking fantasy’s major topics of the week: Odell Beckham, JJ Watt and Brandon Marshall are lost for the season; what does it mean for fantasy? DeShone Kizer gets benched, Derek Carr is on his way back, and Eli Manning is out of receivers; James and Travis have some thoughts on the ever-changing quarterback position.
In “Moving the Chains,” the guys identify nine players who are pushing the pile and climbing their rankings, including three rookie running backs and three second-year wide receivers. James and Travis are liking two second-year quarterbacks, while John is ready to acknowledge that this veteran signal caller is nailing his job interview.
The gang also debuts a new segment called “Three and Out,” calling out nine players who are falling in their dynasty rankings, and three who have hit fantasy rock bottom. Father Time is catching up with the quarterbacks, and their pass catchers are affected as well. The running backs, however, have wide-ranging issues pushing them down in dynasty rankings. But at least they’re sticking on rosters! The guys name three players who don’t belong on rosters anymore, which inevitably comes with some harsh criticism.
In “Going Deep,” the guys look deep into the waiver wire for the players who will be hot pickups in the coming weeks, and Travis has a couple buy-low candidates to acquire in trade while they’re discounted… including a guy who has been untouchable until now. And in “SuperStreakers,” the SF-ers are on the lookout for prime quarterback matchups in Week 6.
