With the NFL regular season starting soon, many fantasy football drafts are underway.

If you haven’t drafted yet, don’t worry, we can help. Vinnie Iyer, a fantasy football writer for Sporting News, joined Cattles & Ramie on Wednesday to discuss the upcoming fantasy football season, including which players on the San Francisco 49ers you should add to your team.

Topics discussed include:

  • Thoughts on Trey Lance on a fantasy-viable quarterback
  • Should managers worry about the reported lack of chemistry between Lance and tight end George Kittle?
  • Where Deebo Samuel ranks among wide receivers
  • Which running backs to avoid? Vinnie said don’t fall for the Christian McCaffrey hype and Saquon Barkley should also be a pass.
  • Is it worth drafting a quarterback early when the pool is so deep?
  • Vinnie’s top 5 running backs
  • Sleeper wide receivers this season
