The NFL has 32 teams, yet how many of them have a real WR1? The Texans, of course, have DeAndre Hopkins, the Julio Jones Falcons, but not every team is so lucky. In the fantasy football podcast episode this week, Matt Harmon and Liz Loza address this and more.
We have to get to Liz’s exciting weekend at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere party before we can get to that, shmoozing with all the biggest rookies in 2019 (0:45). She gets into her Reddit-infamous photo with Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock and plays the dirt on which rookie QB is now called’ the breadstick boy.’
Back to the wide receivers mentioned above. The conversation began with a voicemail message received from Matt and Liz. The caller asked who on the San Francisco 49ers is the most relevant wide receiver: Dante Pettis, Deebo Samuel, or Jalen Hurd (15:00). Of course, the caller did not mention Marquise Goodwin (or Jordan Matthews), but he sheds light on a larger question about large receiver groups that lack a true No. 1 target — a true X receiver.
With unclear hierarchies including the Ravens, Bills, Patriots, Jaguars, Panthers, Cardinals, Steelers and Packers (19:00), Liz and Matt discuss some of these WR corps.
Lastly, for the AFC-and-NFC North teams, Liz and Matt tackle the over / under win totals, and it seems that the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions will be the only teams on the wrong end of.500 (42:30).
