Matt Harmon and Dalton Del Don are here to talk all things football on the latest episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Forecast — and we’re just two days from Week 1 kickoff!

First up, our analysts discuss some of the big transactions ahead of Week 1 action, like Adrian Peterson's return to the NFC North and whether Washington naming J.D. McKissic their starting running back has shaken our confidence in Antonio 'CMC 2.0' Gibson.

The Chicago Bears named Mitch Trubisky the starter, while Kareem Hunt and DeAndre Hopkins both got nice extensions with one reportedly on the way for Alvin Kamara.

Next up, Matt and Dalton debut a new segment titled “Who Got Shelled,” where they’ll discuss a defense or defensive player who got absolutely shelled the prior week, then they’ll dive into the data and point out the defensive matchups you might want to take advantage of the following Sunday.

Since this is Week 1, Matt and Dalton will take this segment to look ahead at matchups they believe will be pretty lopsided on Sunday. Matt goes with the Bills passing game vs. the Jets secondary, while Dalton thinks the 49ers’ passing game is going to have a field day against the Cardinals secondary.

Remember to stay tuned to the Yahoo Fantasy Football Forecast, which will now have FIVE new episodes per week!
