I'm alive! Quick impromptu rant after hearing Chris Harris encourage a nonsensical film vs numbers analysis.
Get me some feedback, if you don't mind lesser quality recording if the content is worth it, let me know!
I'm joined by Brad Reyes @MeanMrMode (which I completely said wrong on the pod) who's currently covering PlayDraft for TheQuantEdge.com as we talk matchups, lineup decisions and big game options for Week 5.
I give some "Mild Predictions" that will actually help you win your leagues, not just make me sound smart. Plus a review of my draft strategy "Drafting From:" articles to help you when drafting from specific spots in your draft.
I get a little heated talking about incoherent RB narratives and the difference between position and role. Then wrap up Chicago and Green Bay's Snapshot Reviews.
Trigger warning if you love Ronald Jones, hate Mckinnon and McNichols, and think Dalvin Cook will get a 70% opportunity share.
A Podcast Profile for the Break from the Grind Pod with hosts George @bftgpod and Jason @DrMilbarge Check out their pod at BFTGPodcast.com
Break from the Grind isn't your usual Fantasy Football podcast, interviewing some big names but from an entirely different angle. When you need a break from the usual FF Podcast monotony, you need Break from the Grind.
I'm joined by Chris Nalls @CNalls83 to talk about the Saints and Alvin Kamara, and wrap up the rest of the division myself.
New Orleans - 3:00
Carolina - 22:30
Tampa Bay - 31:55
Atlanta - 37:08
Check out Chris's article on Kamara here: http://ffdynasty260.com/player-analysis-alvin-kamara/
Going over the Team Projection Snapshots for the AFC East. Check FusionFFB.com to see the snapshots and rankings yourself. Few updates after I recorded: Elijah McGuire's injury will hold him out several weeks and will depress his early numbers. Stat updates upcoming. Rookie Trenton Cannon could benefit.
I dive into my Team Projection Snapshot for the Indianapolis Colts, the first in a series of episodes looking at teams as a whole and highlighting interesting players as values or overpriced in drafts.
www.FusionFFB.com is finally here! I roll out the site, talk about my Team Projection Snapshots and the player rankings that come out of them, and give a little bit of new and analysis from around the league.
Josh and I talk #SFB8 strategy, have a pretty long discussion on Jay Ajayi and other similar ADP running backs, and I secretly hint at or just plain call out four of my (at the time) upcoming SFB8 picks.
Check out PlayerProfiler.com for the Ronald Jones metrics and clips from Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion Rotounderworld Pod, @eliotcrist and his @draftdailypod with guest Adam Spinks @TheRBScout for the two polar perspectives I drew on most for this roundup.
Also discussion on player's hype changing around you and I give you a sneak peak into how my team and player projections project will work.
Come for Ronald Jones, stay for the Finding Nemo take.
I'm joined by @DFF_Swag and @FL2drinkminimum from the Fantasy Football Breakdown for my first Podcast Profile episode, where I help you get to know a new podcast. Check them out at https://t.co/icbvaixiTe
I have a drink and get talking league and draft game theory. How to approach a league with unusual scoring and how to take and keep the advantage throughout your draft. Also there's an opening in my DGAF Dynasty league, got to listen to find out.
I review opinions on Derrius Guice in Washington, then I Correct the Crowd, and talk a little Kalen Ballage with a rant.

I give the answers to the NES music challenge, rant a bit, and give a summary of thoughts on Sony Michel.
-It was The Fantasy Football Dynasty (@TheFFDynasty) that talked about CMC (sorry, got distracted and didn't mention by name).
-PPR points by position for each team since 2014: Addison Hayes of ffstatistics.com @amazehayes_ https://twitter.com/amazehayes_/status/996109318343806977?s=19 (Correction: Patriots were top 5 the last 3 years, not 4).
-Fantasy Football Breakdown @FF_Breakdown Episode 73 has the discussion of Sony Michel.
-Eliot Crist's @eliotcrist Draft Daily Pod @DraftDailyPod for Sony Michel with Charles Mcdonald (@fourverts) from back on February 6.
I take a break from the mock drafts to do a brain dump of some thoughts on avoiding bias in our process and decisions.

I run through the first 2 rounds of similar Superflex 2TE Premium rookie drafts I recently did. We get a feel for the tiers and common runs that happen. I share a point on Guice's double jeopardy strikes as only a two-down back.
