NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Kickoff to the 2018 NFL season is still four months away.
But the NFL Draft – and the bulk of free agency – is complete, so teams have taken shape.
And already, the fantasy football folks are weighing in.
This week, more than 20 men and women from ESPN, including fantasy writers and editors, NFL writers, researchers and other members of the football operation, met to discuss the season what to expect this fall.
