NFL football is just around the corner and that means fantasy football is right around the corner, too!

Dave Richard, senior fantasy football expert at CBS Sports, joined the Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross Friday to help fantasy owners with their last-minute drafts, which 49ers players should be rostered and more.

Topics discussed include:

  • Are the San Francisco 49ers the toughest team to draft players from?
  • Why owners should stay away from Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle
  • Are there any darkhorse quarterbacks to consider taking toward the end of a draft
  • If Dalvin Cook will have an impact in New York
  • Bijan Robinson is worth the hype
  • When should owners grab Deshaun Watson?
