Week 11 Recap: Kyler is heating up, Lamar is on fire and what's wrong with Watson & Wentz?

Four passing touchdowns. 222 passing yards. 86 yards on the ground. Just another day in the office for Lamar Jackson. The MVP front-runner (don't @ us, Russell Wilson lovers) is continuing his hot streak and despite losing this weekend, Kyler Murray is showing strong flashes that he could be Lamar Jackson (or Patrick Mahomes, or Cam Newton) 2.0. Matt Harmon is joined by Dalton Del Don on a Week 11 Sunday night to discuss the results of the too-close-for comfort San Francisco 49ers win over...


Week 11 Preview: Nick Foles is back, RBs to stash and WR3s to stream

Well, as fun as Minshew Mania was, it has indeed come to an end. Nick Foles is returning to the Jaguars this week, but what does it mean for the fantasy values of Jaguar studs like Leonard Fournette and D.J. Chark? (1:10) Liz Loza and Matt Harmon discuss that and much more on the latest Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast.

Week 10 Recap: Barkley, Kamara, Johnson falter & a rare O.J. Howard sighting

Alvin Kamara. Saquon Barkley. David Johnson. There is no doubt that these three names were among the first six or seven picks in your league. Yet today, Kamara was only RB14 on the week and Barkley & don't want to know (1:21). Liz Loza and Matt Harmon discuss these star running back performances and much more in the latest fantasy football podcast. Moving from the broad strokes of disappointing RBs to recapping the Sunday games: - O.J. Howard made an extremely rare...

We have reached Week 10 of the fantasy football season — are you tired yet?

[Play in Yahoo’s NFL $250K Baller. $10 entry fee and $25K to first place] It’s been an eventful week across the NFL. Cam Newton’s season is over, as the Panthers placed their (former) starting quarterback on IR (1:20). Evan Engram is now in a walking boot ahead of a...


Week 9 Recap: Time for a QB change in PIT and CHI?

There was a lot of unimpressive quarterback play early in Week 9, but few signal-callers disappointed more than Mason Rudolph and Mitchell Trubisky. It’s not that they played terribly, but you just always seem to expect more from these passers considering their respective situations. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon discuss these performances and much more in the latest fantasy football podcast. No one realistically expected Mason Rudolph to be Big Ben 2.0, but considering that he has the No. 1...


Week 9 Preview: RBs to stash in the second-half and goodbye to Dalton & Flacco

With Liz Loza out Halloween-ing, Matt Harmon is joined by Yahoo’s very own Scott Pianowski for the latest fantasy football podcast. [Play in Yahoo’s NFL $250K Baller. $10 entry fee and $25K to first place] And with Halloween on the mind, there are some scary situations in the NFL, starting the Steelers backfield, which is a true house of horrors right now. James Conner, Jaylen Samuels, and Benny Snell are all either dealing with injuries or trying to return from them. Seems like Samuels is...


Week 8 Recap: Sanders & Montgomery finally emerge and Danny Dimes is your QB1

You know that moment when that player you’ve been waiting to go off, finally goes off? We had a few of those on Sunday in Week 8. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon talk about those performances and much more in the latest fantasy football podcast. Above all, the most “FINALLY!” moments of the week have to go to rookie running backs, David Montgomery (1:00) and Miles Sanders (5:50). You wanna talk about waiting for guys to go off, look no further. Montgomery (31 total touches, 147 total yards, 1 TD)...


Week 8 Preview: Trade season, IR season, and how those top-ADP players are doing

With the NFL trade deadline less than a week away, some teams have already begun to make moves. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon discuss those trades and much more in the latest fantasy football podcast. Mohamed Sanu and Emmanuel Sanders are both on new teams, and in better situations, too. Sanu is now on the undefeated Patriots, who lost WR Josh Gordon to the IR (0:50), and Sanders is on the undefeated 49ers (7:30). Liz and Matt discuss those trades and how they impact the fantasy...


Week 7 Recap: Key injuries and re-injuries define the weekend

Liz Loza & Matt Harmon, unfortunately, have to discuss a LOT of injuries that occurred in Week 7, headlined by Patrick Mahomes being lost for about a month due to a kneecap injury suffered against the Broncos (1:00). Other big injuries fantasy gamers dealt with include Matt Ryan (ankle), Adam Thielen (hamstring), Kerryon Johnson (knee), and Ito Smith (head/neck), to name a few. Even Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley, who just returned from injuries, got banged up during their game. Liz and Matt...


Week 7 Preview: Rams make YOLO moves, Saquon is back and the TE wasteland

There’s a lot to talk about as we head into Week 7 of the NFL season, and Liz Loza and Matt Harmon cover it all in the latest fantasy football podcast. [Play in Yahoo’s NFL $250K Baller. $10 entry fee and $25K to first place] First up, how about that trade the Los Angeles Rams swung for Jalen Ramsey? Talk about going for it all! The Rams went YOLO with their defense and the Jaguars got a decent haul and seem to be rebuilding on the fly better than a certain aquatic team in south Florida...


Week 6 Recap: Darnold returns, Vikings air it out and signs of danger for Chiefs & Cowboys

Week 6 was not without a few surprises, starting with Marcus Mariota getting benched against the Broncos in favor of Ryan Tannehill (0:45). Well ... “in favor” is probably not the best use of that phrase, as Tannehill was not much better against a Broncos defense that came to play. Moving to games and teams that matter, Liz Loza & Matt Harmon break down the weekend's biggest storylines on this episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast. In the first of two home losses on Sunday for...


Week 6 Preview: What if Mahomes is really injured?

On Monday night, the 49ers put on a running clinic in against the Cleveland Browns, but it ended up coming at a heavy cost: The team lost both their fullback and their right tackle to injury. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon open the show this week discussing the prospects of Matt Breida, Tevin Coleman and play a little game of either/or with the San Francisco backfield (2:06). There's a lot to consider in Kansas City with now that the injury bug has shown its ugly head. With Sammy Watkins getting...


Week 5 Recap: Big performances, and are the Panthers really better without Cam Newton?

You want to talk about big performances, look no further than Week 5. In the latest fantasy football podcast, Liz Loza and Matt Harmon recap those outings, and much more, and they’re joined by Psych and A Million Little Things alum, James Roday! We can’t talk about big performances without talking about what Christian McCaffrey did to the Jacksonville Jaguars (1:30). Run-CMC racked up a whopping 237 total yards and three touchdowns on 25 total touches. Those are video game numbers. But...


Week 5 Preview: The curious case of Stefon Diggs and an RB wasteland

It’s no surprise that the Minnesota Vikings have loved to run the ball in 2019. Like, LOVED it. Like, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have been suffering because of it, and so has every fantasy gamer who drafted one (or both) of the talented Vikings wide receivers. Thielen has voiced his frustration, but, in a surprise to the entire fantasy community, it was Diggs who missed practice for a non-football reason this week. The trade rumor mill was unleashed. Liz and Matt discuss the Diggs...


Week 4 Recap: Lions show signs of (fantasy) life, Nick Chubb explodes and is Brissett a QB1?

Week 4 has been ... interesting. After a bunch of random, waiver-wire-fodder players scored, many matchups that looked like they’d be easy wins for the favorites went down to the wire, including the game between the Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs. Not only did the Lions defense surprise in holding Patrick Mahomes to no touchdowns, but Detroit’s fantasy assets showed out as well. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon break that game down and much more in the latest fantasy football podcast, starting...


Week 4 Preview: Saquon gone, Melvin's back, and weird top-30 at wide receiver

The Giants dealt with a double-edged sword in Week 3. On the one hand, Daniel Jones took the reins of New York’s offense and delivered an awesome performance. Unfortunately, during the game, the Giants (and fantasy gamers) lost Saquon Barkley. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon talk about the reverberations of those events in this week’s fantasy football podcast (0:40). With Saquon out for a few weeks, do we trust Wayne Gallman to carry the load? And can Daniel Jones continue to spread the ball...


Week 3 Recap: It's Daniel Jones and Kyle Allen's NFL, we just live in it

What if I told you that the top-scoring fantasy quarterbacks of Week 3 before Sunday Night Football would be Patrick Mahomes (duh), Russell Wilson (fine), Deshaun Watson (expected), DANIEL JONES (huh?) and KYLE ALLEN (what?!)? I’d sound crazy, but in a week when 20 quarterbacks under the age of 26 started an NFL game, that indeed is the result at the quarterback position #TheFutureIsNow. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon discuss those performances and much more in the latest Yahoo Fantasy Football...


Week 3 Preview: New QB roundup, plus injured units in KC and PHI

If the story of Week 2 were the star QBs injured and out for the foreseeable future, then the story of Week 3 are the fresh faces we'll be seeing in their places. On this edition of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast, Liz Loza & Matt Harmon dive into the offenses we'll be seeing this weekend manned by unproven young passers. First, Mason Rudolph is stepping in for Big Ben with the Steelers. How will the 2018 third-rounder fare versus a San Francisco team that stomped all over Cincinnati...


Week 2 Recap: Niners and Chiefs roll and time to give up on Cam?

The San Francisco 49ers didn’t do much to impress, fantasy-wise, in Week 1. They did win, 31-17, but it was their strong defense that stole the show. Well, things changed in Week 2, as everything on the offensive side of the ball seemed to be working for the Kyle Shanahan-led unit en route to a 41-17 domination of the Cincinnati Bengals. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon break down that performance and more in this week’s Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast (0:20). Can’t mention the 49ers without...


Week 2 Preview: Jets and Chargers injuries emerge, 'Tilted or Jilted'

Well, the Week 2 action is here, but we’ve already begun dealing with the injury monster. Once again, Hunter Henry has fallen victim, this time thanks to a fracture in his left knee. His fellow Charger, Mike Williams, is also dealing with a knee injury of his own. Sadly, Derrius Guice underwent surgery for a torn meniscus and will be sidelined for about eight weeks. Quincy Enunwa is out for the year with a neck injury. Oh, and speaking of Jets, quarterback Sam Darnold will also miss some...
