The NFL regular season is underway!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

As Le’Veon Bell continues his holdout, B_Don and Donkey Teeth profile his temporary (or permanent??) replacement, James Conner. Find out when the fellas think Le’Veon is likely to return and what to expect from Jimmy C while Bell is away and beyond.

Then the guys take a closer look at the Tasmanian Devil, waiver darling Phillip Lindsay.  Is Lindsay a one hit wonder? Is he a PPR only option? Or could Uncle Phil be much, much more? B_Don and DT debate all of the above!

Finally, in the injuries and pickups segment discover which running backs, wide receivers and tight ends you should be targeting this week on the waiver wire. TJ Yeldon, James White, Austin Ekeler, Quincy Enunwa, Chris Godwin and Phillip Dorsett are just a few to the names discussed. Get all the sausage you can handle right here:

I want to take you back to a simpler time. A time, let’s call it, the era of Blockbuster. Now, do you remember having to drive to an actual brick and mortar store, spend 20 minutes walking up and down several aisles, carry around 4 boxes so nobody took the last copy of whichever movie you decide to take home and watch…Then, the world changed.

Netflix delivered movies to your door, but only 1 at a time unless you paid extra, and heaven forbid you lose the damn DVD or envelope. Well, that was a mess and while an interesting concept, still didn’t quite push out the era of Blockbuster.

Eventually Netflix, among others, decided that streaming movies directly into your house or phone was the way to go. No more driving, no more walking up and down the aisles only to find the 35 copies of the one movie you drove to the store for had all been checked out. You simply scroll through and click on the movie or show you wanted to watch (or in my case, scroll, scroll, scroll, keep scrolling, then watch the same shows and movies I’ve seen a dozen times).

Well, I can’t promise that the world of fantasy football will go to a full fledged streaming service, unless you count DFS, but there are a few positions that can be more easily found via streaming than others. Quarterbacks, tight ends, and defenses are the primary areas that I would recommend potentially using the streaming strategy.

This is a strategy I have long since employed as quarterbacks don’t have the same point discrepancy that exists at other positions; tight ends outside of the top few tend to be very TD dependent; and defenses are matchup based more often than not and we really only have so much information going into the season about how a defense will look. I will give a shallower and a deeper option each week… and here are Week 1 Streamers after the jump…
