If you have any errands left to run this summer, I hope you got them done over the weekend, because after today, there’s not going to be any time for errands. There’s going to be so much football that the NFL is going to be hitting us over the head with it.
Of the league’s 32 teams, three of them have already reported for training camp and the other 29 will be reporting tomorrow, which means FOOTBALL IS HERE. On a somewhat related note, I hope everyone binged at least two seasons of “The Real Housewives” over the weekend because that’s the only way you could’ve properly prepared yourself for all the drama you’re going to get in this newsletter.
You want Deshaun Watson drama? We got it.
You want Aaron Rodgers drama? We got it.
And now, I’m going to stop being dramatic so we can get to the rundown.

1. Today’s show: Monday Mailbag
During the NFL offseason, we like to spice things up each week on the Pick Six Podcast by adding a listener mailbag every Monday.
Our mailbag episodes are pretty simple: We read listener questions during the show and then answer as many of those questions as possible. Questions can be about literally anything. I mean, I’m pretty sure there was one time where we spent 10 minutes debating the best ice cream flavor (I will fight people who don’t like Mint Chocolate Chip). Anyway, if you want to submit a question, all you have to do is go to Apple Podcasts (click here) and leave a five-star review.
Here’s one question that we answered in today’s mailbag:
Q: How will the Bengals wide receiver situation work in fantasy? Will they all just get 20 targets a game because the Bengals are constantly passing from behind or will it play out some other way?
A: As the resident Bengals homer on the podcast, I was pleasantly surprised to see this question. I mean, the Bengals have been so bad for the past 30 years that I’m basically shocked we still get any Bengals questions at all. As for this listener’s question, I think he hit the nail on the head. I think we’ll see the Bengals throwing a ton, which means their top three receivers — Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase — should all see plenty of targets this year. As a matter of fact, even if you think the Bengals are going to be horrible, I’d still try to grab at least one of those guys for fantasy purposes. However, do not do what I do every year, which is picking only Bengals players to fill out your roster. That strategy never wins. I might have to change things up this season.
(Note: The Bengals announced on Monday that Burrow is completely cleared for training camp, which means he’ll be getting plenty of reps with Boyd, Higgins and Chase, so maybe I will pick only Bengals players this year).
Anyway, to listen to the…
