Episode 41:  Sigmund Bloom's Facts of Life

Greg Smith (@gregsauce) is joined by Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom), and they kick off the episode with thoughts on the upcoming Scott Fish Bowl (#SFB7), now featuring points awarded for first downs instead of receptions. The next stop on the agenda is the Bloom 100, Sig's overall rookie rankings with both offensive and defensive players, and he lays out how much extra value the quarterbacks would gain in his list for 2QB and Superflex leagues. DeShone Kizer features prominently. After Kizer's competition with Cody Kessler is examined, other battles from around the NFL take the stage. From there, Greg follows up on Sigmund's recent QB Brain Dump article, with focus on Tyrod Taylor, Ben Roethlisberger, and the surplus of receiving options for Philip Rivers. A handful of Twitter questions then bring the podcast to a close.
