NFL Teams Draft for Fantasy

Free agency is just about dead, so it’s time to turn our attention to the draft. I’m hoping to produce a Podcast with myself, Adam Caplan, and Tony Pauline of the TFY Draft Preview show very soon, possibly this week, and we’ll have our Pre-Draft Rookie Report out by month’s end.
