Emmanuel Sanders owners lost him for the season earlier this week, thanks to a torn Achilles. The fantasy outlooks of Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, and Tim Patrick were drastically changed as a result.

Liz and Dalton break down those and the other terrible losses in this latest podcast episode.

They also asked you what high-floor, high-risk players you’re being forced to start in the first round of the playoffs. Demaryius Thomas and Jarvis Landry are some of the fringe starters mentioned.

Of course, we can’t forget about Andy and Brad going at it over their Week 14 rankings, and there are some differing opinions about Joe Mixon.

Liz and Dalton then wrap up with a couple bargains and fades for Yahoo Daily Fantasy.
