Here's the debut of our brand new, twice-weekly fantasy football podcast featuring Scott Spratt. In this first edition, Scott looks at your start and sit decisions for Week 1. Drew Brees headlines a list of quarterbacks who consistently show home/road splits. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs face a tough pass defense in Jackonsville. And Tevin Coleman may be a better road option than teammate Matt Breida. (Click for audio link.)
The Saints are our pick to win the Super Bowl this season, and Drew Brees is our pick to start in your fantasy lineup this week. We're also high on Kerryon Johnson and Minnesota's receivers, but down on Aaron Rodgers and Tyreek Hill.

The Chicago Bears were the NFL's best pass defense in 2018, but even they had their weaknesses. We chart every team's strengths and weaknesses -- or, in Detroit's case, mainly their weaknesses, because the Lions had few strengths.

In two NFL seasons, Alvin Kamara has established himself as one of the best pass-catching running backs in the NFL, no matter where he lines up on the field. Scott Spratt looks at other running backs and tight ends who don't always line up at running back or tight end.

ESPN+ has our annual look at all 32 teams ranked by their talent under 25. This year we changed things to also consider value and length of players' current contracts. We end up with Cleveland and Indianapolis on top, and a couple of surprising Super Bowl contenders on the bottom.
Tyreek Hill was the NFL's most valuable wideout from the slot last year, while Mike Evans was the most productive when lined up out wide. Our numbers show which players specialized in one role or the other, and whose performance changed from 2017.

The I formation is not dead! The Patriots won the Super Bowl while using a lot of James Develin, while Kyle Juszczyk was a key player for San Francisco. We look at which teams still rely on fullbacks and which don't, how teams are changing in this regard.
