They keep it in Texas and move to the Houston Texans' bevy of trades which saw them lose Jadeveon Clowney but add Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills and Carlos Hyde. Liz & Matt analyze this suddenly new-look Texans offense (4:55).

In other weekend moves, Liz & Matt discuss the Kansas City Chiefs signing LeSean McCoy (13:40) and the Patriots shuffling of Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas (18:50).

Next up, our experts take a deep dive into the players who are often overlooked in the wide receiver landscape, but can prove to be PPR assets this fantasy season. The slot receivers who often don’t get the star treatment of their outside-counterparts but who do a lot of the dirty work on the field. Liz and Matt talk about the fantasy outlooks of slot receivers like Adam Humphries, Hunter Renfrow, Cole Beasley, Trey Quinn, Jamison Crowder, and Willie Snead (21:05).

Finally, they wrap up the show taking a pair of listener voicemails on what to do in the fifth round of drafts and the oddities of return yardage leagues (39:45).
