But first, Dalton and Matt talk some of the major happenings in the NFL, including the Seattle Seahawks adding their 50th starting running back!

Okay, in all seriousness, the Seahawks signed Carlos Hyde, and now their backfield consists of Hyde, Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, and Travis Homer. What does this mean for fantasy? (01:25)

And later in the show, Matt Harmon explains the methodology and process behind Reception Perception. For those of you new to Reception Perception, Matt Harmon basically hunkers down while most of us are recuperating from the football season and reviews every route a wide receiver runs to see how successful they are in a wide variety of scenarios. Yes, every. Single. Route. (04:27)

Here are some of the receivers Matt and Dalton discuss in today’s show:

Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers (14:31)
