FANTASY SHARKS RADIO: Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy — 2016 NFL Draft Preview (Part 2)

We’re one short week from the 2016 NFL draft, and things are really ramping up. Scuttlebutt. Speculation. And trades involving both the No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks on April 28.

With that in mind, Fantasy Sharks Staff Writers Gary Davenport, Todd Latzke and Walton Spurlin welcome in a special guest. Fellow Sharks staffer (and NFL Draft expert) Dan Collins joins the gang to discuss both the latest draft-day scuttlebutt and its fantasy impact.

Because in this second installment of our NFL Draft Preview, the gang is focusing on the fake football impact of the very real draft. Whether it’s dynasty leagues or redraft formats, the offensive positions (quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end) or the IDPs, this edition of the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy is all about forecasting the fantasy impact of the action in Chicago.

Is Ezekiel Elliott a no-brainer No. 1 pick in rookie drafts. In a muddy crop at wideout, who’s the top dog? Will Jared Goff or Carson Wentz make a fantasy dent under center in 2016? Is there a tight end worth knowing about this year?

And what about defensive linemen like Joey Bosa and DeForest Buckner? Linebackers like Reggie Ragland and Myles Jack? Who are the rookie IDPs fantasy owners need to know about this summer?

The guys will also look at the latest news around the league, from the trade that sent the second pick from Cleveland to Philly (and Gary into an apoplectic rage) to the stunning departure of Josh Norman from the Carolina Panthers.

For the answers to these questions and more, tune in Thursday, April 21 at 7:00 Eastern for Part 2 of a two-part draft previewpalooza of prescient prognostication! Jumbo-sized even!!!

Come on in — the water’s FINE!
