Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 1 Recap 9-12-16

Well, we finished recording this podcast just as the news broke of Cleveland placing QB Robert Griffin III on IR with a broken bone in his shoulder. That will certainly change things for the Browns, though it might actually help the receiving value for most of the Cleveland players drafted in your fantasy football league.

Although we missed that topic on the pod, we've got plenty more to talk about ...

-- There's the fallout from Keenan Allen's knee injury in San Diego, as well as the pain in Sammy Watkins' foot and a few other high-profile injury situations.

-- There are a bunch of split backfields we finally got to see in real action. So what did we learn?

-- There were multiple rookies who led their team in pass targets. Does that mean we can count on them in fantasy?

And, as usual, we're all trying not to overreact to all of the good and the bad that perennially comes with the 1st week of regular-season action (and often the 2nd ... and 3rd ... and ...).

Join us as we sort it all out and push ahead toward Week 2.
