Episode 180: High-volume wide receivers w/Jody Smith of gridironexperts.com

Written by 
Odell Beckham Jr. is among the highest targeted receiver in the NFL and stands to get even better with Brandon Marshall drawing more attention his way. Don't worry about Beckham losing targets either, quarterback Eli Manning threw 598 times last season. There's enough to go around in Ben McAdoo's offense.

The Fantasy Football Helpers are back after a brief hiatus and ready to talk important stats that lend themselves to consistently sound predictions for your fantasy team. Jody Smith, 26-year Fantasy Football Veteran and Senior Editor of gridironexperts.com joins the pod to discuss his methodology to identify good late-round draft picks. They then switch gears and talk high-volume receivers, discuss why Odell Beckham Jr. is in for a big year as well as why Larry Fitzgerald might be someone to avoid in 2017. They wrap it up comparing Amari Cooper's red zone struggles to Andre Johnson's. Lots of value here.

About Us

We believe Fantasy Football success comes down to two things — opportunity and talent. You will have Fantasy Football mastered once you understand how good a player is and how good of an opportunity he has to gain yards and score touchdowns. The thing is, you'll never master Fantasy Football. But you can get pretty darn good at it when you have even a slightly better understanding of opportunity and talent than the average Joe. That's what Fantasy Football Helpers is dedicated to doing.
