As the NFL preseason comes to a close, that means fantasy football is right around the corner.

Drafts are happening now through the first day of the NFL. And if you haven’t held your draft yet, we want to help! KC Joyner is a contributor to The Athletic, focusing on fantasy football and sports gambling. On Friday, he joined Cattles & Ramie to discuss the upcoming fantasy football season, especially when it comes to players on the San Francisco 49ers.

Topics discussed include:

  • What is the upside for Trey Lance in fantasy football this year?
  • Who is the 49er wide receiver to draft, Brandon Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel?
  • Should fantasy players even touch a 49er running back?
  • Outside of Trey Lance, who are the second-year quarterbacks worth taking a chance drafting?
  • Josh Allen, Kyler Murray or Justin Herbert should be drafted as early as late in the second round
  • If you’re drafting today, Dak Prescott can be had at a steal.
