FANTASY SHARKS RADIO: Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy — 2016 TE/DEF Preview

It’s the last week of July. Training camps across the NFL are getting underway. And here at the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy, we’re continuing our position-by-position look at the 2016 season.

This week, it’s the tight ends — otherwise known as the Kingdom of Gronkia.

There’s zero doubt that Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots of the New England Patriots is the No. 1 fantasy option at the position. But is Gronkowski so head-and-shoulders better than the likes of Jordan Reed of the Washington Redskins and Greg Olsen of the Carolina Panthers that he’s worth the first round pick required to obtain his services in many leagues?

That’s far from the only question Fantasy Sharks Staff Writers Gary Davenport, Todd Latzke and Walton Spurlin will be answering about the tight ends this week. Are there any mid-round values smart fantasy owners should look to target in 2016? What about busts in the waiting who need to be avoided. And is there anything to see in what appears to be another wholly uninspiring rookie class at the position.

The guys will also talk team defenses in advance of next week’s IDP special. Are there any team defenses worth reaching for? Which ones should you steer clear of? And who are the leading early-season candidates for streamers who like to play the matchups.

Given all the news of the past week the fellas have plenty to talk about in that regard as well, and they’ll break down the fantasy football implications of LeVeon Bell’s suspension, Josh Gordon‘s reinstatement and J.J. Watt‘s balky back.

Join the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy on Thursday, July 28 from 7-8 PM Eastern as they continue dishing out the information you need to dominate your fantasy league in 2016.

Come on in — the water’s FINE!
