While our dear host Matt Harmon makes his cross country move to Virginia, Scott Pianowski and Dalton Del Don hold down the fort for this week's pod with the season's first re-draft mock draft. With the NFL Draft and free agency in the rear view mirror it's never too early to start mocking. And for this one we have the entire Yahoo Fantasy staff pitch in.
Pianowski and Del Don go pick-by-pick in a first round 12-team half PPR league format to see if Yahoo's fantasy staff made the right selection or if there was a better option on the table.
By going through the first round, Pianowski and Del Don touch on some of the hottest debates this upcoming fantasy season: When is it too early to take Bijan Robinson? Can we still trust Cooper Kupp? Is Travis Kelce still a first rounder? Who's WR3?
The two end the show with guys who didn't make the top 12 but could be potential first round options or highly coveted picks in the early second round.
