IDP Podcast: Tracking LBs 10-21-17

​NaVorro Bowman made an impressively quick transition into the Oakland defense this week, so he’ll kicking off this week’s IDP podcast. NFL Week 7 gives us another exciting LB return for IDP owners, as well, while several other changing situations require analysis. At DB, a surprising performer for the surprising Saints just might hang on to his job. And we’ll close it out with a few D-line notes. ​Check our Week 7 IDP rankings before you finalize your lineups.

DFS Podcast: Wek 7 DraftKings 10-20-17

Even without Matt Ryan and Tom Brady — not to mention Thursday night’s bombers and the Monday-night duo — there are still plenty of QB options on the DraftKings main slate. We’ve got some favorites in varying price ranges. At RB, we don’t have quite as many names to throw out, but they range in price as well. At WR, 1 Broncos WR could benefit big time from the unfortunate injury status of another — and we just might get some sneaky production out of a certain NFC west passing game.​ Click...

DFS Podcast: Week 7 FanDuel 10-20-17

​Amari Cooper bounced back in Thursday night’s win over the Chiefs … much further than even his biggest fans could have hoped. That’s not relevant to Week 7 DFS — unless you already set lineups with him — but we can’t avoid addressing the goofy situation at the top of today’s show. After that, we’ve got some disagreement at QB, some little-mentioned upside from a passing game that has been quietly efficient so far and a stud RB that we can all agree on … just 2 months after we all agreed...

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 7 Preview 10-19-17

​We’re going international for fantasy passing numbers this week. The Rams relied on Todd Gurley, defense and special teams to win at Jacksonville in Week 6. But it just might be Jared Goff and crew that carry them if they’re to win in London. Elsewhere, the Seahawks-Giants matchup funnels action to a pair of high-powered fantasy TEs. Buffalo presents the question of whether it has enough pass-catchers to support Tyrod Taylor in a good fantasy matchup. And what do we do with C.J. Anderson...

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 6 Recap 10-16-17

​The biggest issue facing fantasy football owners after Sunday is the same one facing the Packers: How do we deal with the Aaron Rodgers injury? We’re kicking off today’s show with a look at Brett Hundley, an early check on the streaming options for Week 7 and a couple of QBs you might want to ask about on the trade desk. But Rodgers wasn’t the only weekend news. We had shocking outcomes in Atlanta and Denver to figure out, plus another sluggish day from the disappointing Raiders offense...

DFS Podcast: Week 6 DraftKings 10-13-17

​Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara have been hot names throughout fantasy football since the Saints traded Adrian Peterson to Arizona. But should you be targeting either, both or neither in your DraftKings lineups for NFL Week 6? Elsewhere at RB, we’re not scared to go back to Todd Gurley after he left fantasy owners down last week, but there’s not total agreement on which contests he belongs in. We’ve also got another set of cheap QBs to help you afford to pay up for Rob Gronkowski at TE …...

DFS Podcast: Wek 6 FanDuel 10-13-17

​Zach Ertz has already played. Delanie Walker will play Monday night. Greg Olsen and Tyler Eifert are hurt. Jimmy Graham and Jason Witten are on bye. Travis Kelce … we’ll see about him. So, it’s a good thing we seem to be getting Rob Gronkowksi back from last week’s thigh injury. But it sets up an interesting question: Do you pay up for him or drop way down and spend those savings elsewhere? Of course, we’re digging into 3 other positions before we even get to the TE talk. There’s some...

IDP Podcast: Big Returns 10-12-17

Browns DE Myles Garrett didn’t play much in his 1st action of the season last week, but he capitalized with a pair of sacks. What’s on tap for the encore? He wasn’t the only guy getting back to it, though. We got a veteran LB and an NFC North safety returning to full playing time. A Dallas LB got back onto the field and might shuffle the lineup going forward. Danny Trevathan returns to a good spot after his 1-game vacation. And we just might get some key players back from injury this...

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 6 Preview 10-12-17

​Trying to figure out who to play at QB this week? Well, there are some interesting options. Carson Palmer and Jameis Winston will square off in what might just be the week’s best bet for passing points. Vegas expects a shootout between the Saints and Lions, but will that depend on Matthew Stafford’s health after a tough Week 5? And streaming candidates come at us from several other upside matchups — including Josh McCown waiting to show whether the Patriots D actually got better last week...

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 5 Recap 10-9-17

​You knew George Kittle and Ed Dickson were about to pop Sunday, right? Well, even if they aren’t ready to deliver big numbers for our fantasy teams the rest of the way, their brief(?) emergences revealed some trends that we can use going forward. Week 5 also gave us a rebound from Melvin Gordon, a renewed commitment to a certain Ravens RB and a new guy to either love or worry about in the Green Bay backfield … depending on who else we own. Then there was Deshaun Watson — is he ever coming...

DFS Podcast: Week 5 DraftKings 10-6-17

​Are you having trouble finding QB situations that you actually like this week? Well, you’re not alone. We’re looking at an ugly slate of matchups and Vegas numbers and finding ourselves drawn toward some players and situations that we normally avoid. Jared gets us started with some QBs that don’t usually garner any fantasy attention. Kevin’s going back to a RB who has struggled for 2 weeks straight and might not face as attractive a matchup as it seems. And Matt? Well, with the kids home...

DFS Podcast: Week 5 FanDuel 10-6-17

It’s a fairly strange week at QB. Jacoby Brissett, Brian Hoyer and Josh McCown all rate as popular names when we check the FanShare Sports tagging, but are we actually chasing any of those guys for our FanDuel lineups? Le’Veon Bell stands as the clear RB leader, but Jared has another stud he likes just as much. Kevin, meanwhile, ain’t scared to stand by a top-shelf receiver who has let fantasy owners down to this point. Matt? He’s just happy he finally won a SharkDuel. Click here for...

IDP Podcast: Hidden Sack Value 10-5-17

​Niners 2nd-year DT DeForest Buckner is already delivering solid IDP value, but he just might be ready to turn into a bona fide stud soon. He’s the 1st guy on my list of pass rushers likely to soon convert their strong QB-hit totals into sacks. We’ll also look at a couple of successful early edge rushers who have surprised and whether they belong in weekly lineups. And, of course, a lengthy list of injured guys give us plenty to think about heading into NFL Week 5. Check our Week 5 IDP...

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 5 Preview 10-5-17

​Week 5 means our 1st official set of byes this season, leaving 4 teams on the shelf. Throw in a fairly ugly slate of games with low over/under projections from Vegas, and fantasy points might be a little tougher to generate than usual. But we’re looking to matchups to try to help get some TE value going for the Chargers and get us something out of Isaiah Crowell. We have an odd-looking set of QBs in the streaming bin this week, with some disagreement over who stands out. And we’ve got...

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 4 Recap 10-2-17

​Are you a Dalvin Cook owner wondering what to do now? Well the Vikings seemed to provide a pretty clear message on their replacement plan — at least in a limited sample. Fantasy owners also must deal with fallout from injuries to Seahawks RB Chris Carson, Falcons WR Julio Jones and others from Sunday, but we also found silver linings in some injury situations. Beyond the medical reports, getting through the 1st quarter of the season has started to clear the matchup picture for us. Which...

DFS Podcast: Week 4 FanDuel 9-29-17

Which crappy QB from Week 3 has all of the guys still feeling comfy enough to use him in Week 4 DFS lineups? That guy leads us off but is far from the only affordable passer on FanDuel this week. RB has us a bit more divided on the top cheap target, but it’s hard to get away from everyone’s favorite for the week: Ezekiel Elliott. There’s a similar favorite stud atop the WR list, though we’re spreading the love around beyond that, and then TE features the question of whether to pay...

DFS Podcast: Week 4 DraftKings 9-29-17

​Finding attractive cheap QBs on DraftKings isn’t always easy … but it seems a lot easier this week. We’ve got a trio of passers in the sub-$6,000 range who could work for various contest types — plus a couple of guys in the next level up, in case you’re not looking to pay down so much. At RB, there’s Zeke Elliott and everyone else in Week 4, but we’ve got some more affordable options to help you fit him into lineups. The wideout club is hanging out in the middle of $6K range this week,...

IDP Podcast: Sorting Out DBs 9-28-17

​Have you noticed just how far above his career high Devin McCourty is producing? Can it last? He’s 1st in a list of emergent early-season fantasy DBs that we’re sorting through for gems among the fool’s gold. That group follows a lengthy rundown of injuries to guys we’ll hope to use in NFL Week 4 and some we won’t be able to count on for a while. The Buccaneers defense could be its own show, but we’ll wrap it into the middle of this one. ​Check our Week 4 IDP rankings.

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 4 Preview 9-28-17

​You probably already know most of your fantasy starters for this week — especially if you’ve checked out our Week 4 rankings and/or your My Team page. But we’re looking into some key matchup stats on this week’s show to help make the tougher calls and reveal some potential sleepers (and busts). Which areas find the Seahawks and Broncos struggling to surprising degrees, and who might be in line to benefit? Which top wideouts face the toughest coverage matchups this weekend, and where might...

Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 3 Recap 9-25-17

​You all stacked Case Keenum and Stefon Diggs or Jared Goff and everyone on his team for Week 3, right? From the shocking offensive explosion on Thursday night to the Raiders’ disappearing act in Washington on Sunday night, there were plenty of goofy things this weekend. Should you buy big fantasy outings from Jordan Howard and Christian McCaffrey? Are the Bengals and Giants offenses back? And who might you consider selling after Sunday’s events? Even we’re having trouble agreeing, but...
