Dr. Roto Podcast – Friday, June 1

Every week Dr. Roto takes a look at some NFL “coach speak” or “player speak” to see which are fact and which are fiction for Fantasy Football owners.

Bears RB Jordan Howard will be the bell cow of their offense.

Fact or Fiction? Fiction: Thankfully, the Bears ushered John Fox and his archaic coaching staff out of town and have brought in young offensive genius Matt Nagy as their new head coach. Nagy will do a much better job of integrating the pieces on offense, including getting the ball in the hands of playmaking RB Tarik Cohen more often. The Bears will still use Howard as their primary source of carries, and I would expect that his carries will increase as the weather worsens in Chicago over the course of the season, but Howard will not get 25-30 carries a game as he did with the old regime.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard will see more time on the outside this season.

Fact or Fiction? Fiction: Shepard has run over 80% of his routes in both 2016 and 2017 out of the slot, and I think he will continue to do so this season. The Giants did nothing to address their depleted receiving corps this off-season, so as it stands now either Roger Lewis or Cody Latimer will be the other outside receiver across from Odell Beckham Jr. This will allow Shepard to do his handiwork in the middle of the field.
