Fantasy Football Podcast: What to Do With That Guy 9-25-18

​ We changed things up last week, recording the post-Week 2 podcast a day later and shifting the focus to look ahead over looking back. We liked it, so we're making the change for good. With NFL Week 3 behind us, we've got 18 players coming to the forefront for positive, negative or injury-driven reasons -- and we're letting you know how we would treat each one. Which new rookie starter could be running your fantasy lineup before long? Which top-12 RBs should you sell or hold? And which...


DFS Podcast: Week 3 FanDuel 9-21-18

Injuries have brought about big changes and big values on the RB landscape this week. The Eagles' top 2 RBs are out, and Corey Clement popped up on Friday's injury report. Dalvin Cook's out, leaving Latavius Murray to start. And Joe Mixon's surgery thrusts Gio Bernard into the spotlight. How should you treat all of them on FanDuel this week? Here's the rundown ...​​ ​Cash-game QBs ... 3:38 GPP QBs ... 5:15 ​Cash-game RBs ... 7:44 GPP RBs ... 10:22 ​Cash-game WRs ... 12:09 GPP WRs ......


DFS Podcast: Week 3 DraftKings 9-21-18

No Patriots, Lions, Steelers or Buccaneers on the main slate means no Rob Gronkowski, Chris Hogan, Detroit wideouts, Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger or ... most importantly ... Fitzmagic. So what's left? Plenty, of course. We're looking for the most affordable and/or underused pieces of the Chiefs-49ers matchup, sifting through a bevy of mid-priced RB options and discovering an easy target at TE. Here's the rundown ... QB ​Cash games -- 2:40 GPP -- 4:03 RB ​Cash games -- 5:17 GPP...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 3 Preview 9-20-18

The Saints aren't spreading the ball around the way we've gotten used to. Carson Wentz is back, setting up a marquee QB clash in which we might not want to play either guy. And 49ers-Chiefs appears set to battle Patriots-Lions and Steelers-Buccaneers for top fantasy-bonanza status in Week 3. Let's run through all the games to analyze the matchups and figure out some start/sit conundrums. New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons -- 2:23 ​Denver Broncos at Baltimore Ravens -- 6:43 ​Cincinnati...


Fantasy Football Podcast: What to Do With That Guy 9-18-18

​ Josh Gordon's going to New England. Should we buy him or sell him? And what shall we do with David Johnson, Alex Collins and all the later-round RBs off to huge starts? With 2 weeks of games behind us but most of the season yet to come, let's sort through some of the most surprising early results and how to help our fantasy football rosters. ​Check out our Week 3 rankings and our Rest of the Way rankings.


DFS Podcast: Week 2 DraftKings 9-14-18

​ Jared tapped into the RB scoring onslaught better than the rest of us in Week 1 and dominated the 1st round of this year's Crown His Ass Challenge. But we can't possibly expect so many points from the position again in Week 2, right? We like some bounce-back candidates at QB, some some pricey backs, an array of affordable receivers and a particular group of TEs. Here's the rundown ... What you shoulda done in Week 1 ... 00:57 Cash-game QBs ... 3:16 Tournament QBs ... 5:42 Cash-game...


DFS Podcast: Week 2 FanDuel 9-14-18

​ If you didn't have James Conner in your Week 1 lineups, then you probably didn't finish near the top in any DFS tournament. But his price has jumped way up for Week 2. Does that put him out of play in our cash-game or GPP lineups on FanDuel? Let's discuss that and more. Here's the rundown ... A soul-crushing loss in Week 1 of the SharkDuel ... 00:53 Cash-game QBs ... 2:45 ​Tournament QBs ... 4:51 Cash-game RBs ... 7:32 ​Tournament RBs ... 10:15 Cash-game WRs ... 10:59 ​Tournament...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 2 Preview 9-13-18

​ Week 1 is all about the excitement of a new season ​finally ​getting underway. Week 2? It's all about overreactions. The things that surprised us last week -- Ryan Fitzpatrick, Phillip Lindsay, the Jets -- now enter our lineup decisions. Should we trust what we saw? Should we keep believing in what we expected? The answer, of course, will be some mix of both. So let's run through the entire Week 2 slate and sort out the biggest lineup questions and decisions. Here's the order...


Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 1 Recap 9-10-18

​ James Conner, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tyreek Hill starred in Week 1. One of those guys delivered in a situation we all love, one surprised everybody and one left us recanting our words against his draft status. The opening week of the NFL regular season of course gives us a lot to digest and overreact to, so we're running through the key developments to Sunday and trying to figure out the appropriate reactions. Of course, you can check out our updated Rest of the Way rankings and weekly...


DFS Podcast: Week 1 DraftKings 9-7-18

DFS Podcast: Week 1 FanDuel 9-7-18

Fantasy Football Podcast: Preseason Revelations 8-27-18

​ The preseason is basically over. No starters will see action this Thursday. Third-string QBs and 4th-string RBs will rule the night. So that makes now the perfect time to look back on what we learned over the past 3 weeks of "action." Some teams showed us little. Some surprised us with their playing-time decisions.

Fantasy Football Podcast: Preseason Week 1 Overreactions 8-14-18

Fantasy Football Podcast: Training Camp ADP Movers 8-8-18

​​We're about 2 weeks into training camps around the league, and that means we've had time to learn more about the Seattle backfield, react to some big-name injuries and get reminded that DeVante Parker lets everyone down. All of these factors have already started affecting ADP ... in a big way in many cases. On today's show, we're looking at the guys who have taken the biggest leap up draft boards since early June, along with those who have fallen furthest. Most importantly, we're digging...


Fantasy Football Podcast: AFC West Preview 8-2-18

It's football time! The preseason officially got underway tonight, and we've officially finished our team-preview series. The AFC West is up last, and it brings plenty of intrigue. Half the teams sport new QBs. One boasts a new coach that was also the old coach. One dumped its lead rusher in the spring. Another has shed all of its TE targets from a year ago​​.
