Host Ian Hartitz welcomes on Action Network and FantasyLabs analyst Matthew Freedman to go over 10 questions related to some of the league's top storylines as well as the AFC and NFC Championship matchups. The guys start off by looking at the 2020 rookie RBs and projecting who is currently the dynasty RB1 of the group. Next is a game of fantasy matchmaker for 2021 free agents including Allen Robinson, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Curtis Samuel and more. Ian and Matt agree Lamar Jackson is still a top-five dyansty QB, while the guys have different thoughts on who holds the best betting value to be the Colts' 2021 Week 1 starting QB. Conversation continues with a hat tip to A.J. Brown playing through the pain and where he ranks in the 2021 WR landscape before the guys debate whether Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill would be the better fantasy option as the Saints' 2021 starting QB. Things wrap up with DFS, on-field strategy and more general thoughts on the AFC and NFC Championship matchups.
Host Ian Hartitz welcomes on PFF analyst Andrew Erickson to break down the Buccaneers-Packers and Bills-Chiefs conference championship matchups. The guys start off by questioning whether or not the Bucs will rely on Tom Brady's arm against the Packers' absolutely brutal run defense. Playoff Lenny figures to have his way on the ground, but will his hot stretch be enough to earn another contract from Tampa Bay? The guys agree that Chris Godwin is set up best against this Jaire Alexander-led secondary, while Ian debuts a "candle bet" that Rob Gronkowski finds his way into the end zone. Conversation continues with a look at what went wrong for Aaron Rodgers and company in their first matchup against the Bucs before the guys discuss what 2021 destination might be best for Aaron Jones from a fantasy perspective. The Bills-Chiefs matchup brings on discussion regarding whether Josh Allen can bounce back from last week's middling performance, where Stefon Diggs ranks in the 2021 fantasy WR ranks, and which complementary Bills pass-catcher might have the biggest afternoon. The guys wrap things up with a look at Patrick Mahomes and whether or not we should expect the Chiefs to again utilize a run-heavy approach against the Bills among other final topics.

Host Ian Hartitz welcomes on Sports Illustrated senior fantasy analyst Michael Fabiano to discuss recent NFL developments as well as the Divisional Round. The guys start things off by going over which landing spot would lead to the most 2021 fantasy value for free agent Allen Robinson. Ian and Michael agree that Diontae Johnson should be treated as a legit top-20 WR in 2021 fantasy drafts, but keep an eye on the potential for an unnecessarily large ADP disparity between him and Chase Claypool. Conversation continues with a look at 2021 expectations for Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars, what to expect from the Seahawks without OC Brian Schottenheimer, and where Joe Burrow stacks up in the dynasty QB ranks. The guys next get into the divisional round. Both Ian and Michael think the Browns have a good chance of covering and we shouldn't discount Baker Mayfield and company in DFS either. Things might not be easy for Aaron Rodgers and company, but it's going to be tough for Jared Goff to keep pace. Conversation winds down with more analysis on the Saints-Buccaneers and Ravens-Bills matchups before the guys finish things off by pondering which team would an alien be best off following and becoming a fan of for the next five years.
2:13 Dream landing spot for Allen Robinson II?
5:07 How will Diontae Johnson/Chase Claypool fare in 2021?
8:27 Year 1 expectations for Meyer/Lawrence in JAX?
12:25 Concerned about Seahawks’ offense in 2021?
15:33 How many QBs would you take ahead of Burrow?
17:36 Do the Browns have a shot at beating the Chiefs?
21:18 Can the Rams great defense stop the Packers great offense?
26:04 Will the Buccaneers finally beat the Saints?
31:40 Prediction for Baltimore/Buffalo news headlines?
33:48 Team to root for over the next 5 years?
Host Ian Hartitz welcomes on PFF analyst Andrew Erickson to talk through all four Divisional Round matchups. The guys start off by debating whether or not we'll see the good version of Jared Goff this week before pondering if this elite Rams defense is capable of making Aaron Rodgers look even somewhat mortal. Ian breaks down why he believes Lamar Jackson is already the best rushing QB of all time before Andrew goes over the negative (fantasy) impact that dual-threat QBs have on their offense's running backs. Neither Ian nor Andrew believe Josh Allen will stop balling in this tough matchup, and the guys also believe Stefon Diggs is more than worthy of top-three WR treatment across the league based on his marvelous 2020 campaign. Additional topics include: whether or not to eat the Devin Singletary chalk in DFS, if Baker can keep on cooking, where does Nick Chubb stack up among the league's very best backs, what to expect from Patrick Mahomes and company in their first competitive game since Week 16, whether or not TB12 can turn things around in his third try against the Saints, if Michael Thomas can pop off for his first huge game of the season, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz welcomes The Ringer NFL writer Danny Kelly to talk through 10 questions ahead of Super Wild Card weekend. Danny believes the Bills are in fact the top challenger to the Chiefs' AFC throne, and Ian argues their perceived weaknesses aren't even that big of a deal in the year 2021. The guys discuss whether or not the Colts (+6.5) deserve to be the AFC's biggest round one underdog before gushing over what Brandon Staley has done with this Rams defense. Discussion continues with a look at whether or not Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense can turn the ship around. Danny believes the Ravens should be able to take down the Titans, but the guys both agree this Titans offense is truly a force to be reckoned with. Additional topics include: how deadly this Ravens offense would be with a legit No. 1 WR, which playoff RB would "matter" the most in a neutral situation, what are Mitch Trubisky and company's chances of shocking the Saints, who might be the most-dangerous Wild Card playoff team in NEXT year's playoffs, and much more.\
0:05 Intro 1:24 Is BUF the biggest challenge to KC in the AFC? 4:47 Do the Colts deserve a +6.5 spread against the Bills? 8:56 Which defense in the playoffs can carry their team? 12:34 Can the Seahawks bounce back in the playoffs? 18:20 How good could the Ravens be with a top WR? 23:14 Pick one: Ravens or Titans? 26:17 Which playoff RB would you want on your roster? 28:57 How confident are you in the Bears? 32:40 Which playoff team will be in the best position in 2021? 35:45 Best non-QB between Chiefs and Packers?
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF and Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all six Wild Card matchups. The guys start off by complimenting Josh Allen on his fantastic season, although Dwain points out that things haven't gone as smooth vs. zone-heavy defenses like the Colts. Ian is confident that Indy should be able to move the ball with decent success through the air or on the ground; just realize the Bills aren't as bad at stopping the run as some numbers indicate. Ian and Dwain think the Rams are better off with Jared Goff (thumb) vs. John Wolford under center, particularly against a Seahawks defense that has struggled to stop the deep ball all season. Discussion continues with neither guy being confident in the Buccaneers or the Football Team's ability to put up points. The opposite is true for the the Ravens' matchup against the Titans, while Dwain cautions in counting out Mitch Trubisky and the Bears against the Saints. Finally the guys wrap it up by taking a closer look at Baker Mayfield's chances of pulling off the upset in Pittsburgh. Additional topics include: can Russell Wilson overcome this terrifying Rams defense, will the decent version of the Steelers defense please stand up, is it Terry McLaurin week, are the Titans the Ravens' kryptonite, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz welcomes 4for4 Director of DFS TJ Hernandez to discuss the Week 17 DFS slate. The guys start off going through which teams might not be motivated to play their starters for 60 full minutes. Conversation continues with a look at John Wolford and this banged-up Rams offense as well as where Malcolm Brown falls in the slate's cheap RB landscape. Both Ian and TJ are all in on Curtis Samuel taking full advantage of his rare dual-threat role, while the guys have differing opinions on just how they want to approach the tight end position this week. Additional topics include: favorite sub-$4,000 WR, top galaxy-brained dart throw, if there's any way you can get away from Derrick Henry in cash, thoughts on the number 0 being swaggy in football, and much more.
Any DFS options on KC, PIT, BUF and TB?
Are you buying into John Wolford or Malcom Brown?
Best running back at 4,500 or lower?
Are you confident in Curtis Samuel’s role?
Who is the best sub 4,000 receiver to target?
Is the Raiders offense stack worthy?
Most outlandish DFS player to target?
Is Derrick Henry a lock for Week 17?
Which receiver to target in the 5,000-5,500 range?
Should you buy in on Jonathan Taylor?
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF analyst Andrew Erickson to break down every game in Week 17 with a focus on DFS now that the majority of season-long leagues are over. Ian doesn't see any scenario in which the Lions stop this Vikings offense; don't be surpised if their talented WRs and Dalvin Cook all go off in this smash spot. Andrew is a bit worried about the Buccaneers fully playing their starters, while Ian shares a similar sentiment about the Bills. The guys agree Nick Chubb could be in for a big week against the Mason Rudolph-led Steelers. Ian also cautions against fading Ezekiel Elliott in DFS at his lowest price ever on DraftKings. Additional topics include: the incredibly-affordable Ravens stack, if Jonathan Taylor RB1 szn will continue, Derrick Henry's chances of getting to 2,000 rushing yards, whether or not Aaron Rodgers can put a cherry on top of his likely MVP campaign, if George Kittle can pop off in a winnable matchup against the Seahawks, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz welcomes Rotoworld/NBC Sports NFL writer Patrick Daugherty to discuss Week 16 and other football storylines. The guys start things off by wondering if Drew Brees and company can overcome their familiar January failures this time around. Pat gives credit to the job Brian Flores has done with this young Dolphins team, and Ian is excited to see how they build around Tua going into 2021. Both Pat and Ian agree Lamar Jackson deserves to be in the running for the fantasy QB2 in 2021, while Jalen Hurts is locked in as a top-five option at the position ahead of Week 16. Neither Pat nor Ian are truly trusting the Browns as 2020 contenders. The guys do take the time to pay their respects to the job Deshaun Watson has done without much of a suporting cast throughout the season. Additional topics include: favorite random fantasy-related storyline of the season, which 2020 rookie RB will have the highest 2021 ADP, can the Steelers turn this sinking season around, what to do about Tony Pollard in Week 16, and much more.
0:20 Intro 02:04 Is the Saints’ offense enough to make the Super Bowl? 05:46 How are the Dolphins as good as they are? 09:20 What QBs are ahead of Lamar Jackson for 2021? 13:40 Favorite random fantasy football storyline in 2020 16:11 Do you have any faith in the Browns? 19:30 After Mahomes, is Deshaun Watson the best QB? 23:21 Which rookie RB will have the highest ADP in 2021? 26:49 Can the Steelers bounce back? 30:38 How confident are you in Pollard & Hurts? 32:57 Can you trust the Bills’ playmakers vs NE?
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF and Establish the Run analyst Dwain McFarland to break down every Week 16 matchup. Ian starts off by putting some respect on Adam Thielen's name for scoring 13 TDs already this season, while Dwain is excited to get back to treating Alvin Kamara as a high-end RB1 with Drew Brees back under center. It's Brandon Aiyuk's world; we're all just living in it. The guys agree that both Kyler Murray and Lamar Jackson are firmly back in the top-five QB conversation thanks to their absurd rushing upside. This logic also applies to Jalen Hurts. Ian gives D.J. Moore his due as one of the best young receivers in football before Dwain notes that J.D. McKissic looks an awful lot like an auto-start in Week 16. Additional topics include: if Baker Mayfield can stay hot, who to trust from this struggling Pittsburgh offense, just how good is Justin Herbert, the best is yet to come from Noah Fant, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Bengals' somewhat thrilling Monday night victory over the Steelers before giving his thoughts on some of the week's most popular waiver wire options. Ben Roethlisberger and this passing game reached a new low, but at least Diontae Johnson remembered to hold on to the ball this week. Credit to Benny Snell for emerging as the top RB in this James Conner-less backfield. Ryan Finley got the Bengals a victory, but make no mistake about it: Giovani Bernard is the only player on this offense that is even somewhat viable in fantasy ahead of Week 16. Ian wraps things up with waiver wire thoughts on the likes of Le'Veon Bell, Lynn Bowden, Rashard Higgins, Jeff Wilson, Salvon Ahmed and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down every Week 15 game from Sunday with a focus on usage, injuries and notes that you won't find in the box score. Tony Pollard had a huge day in Ezekiel Elliott's (calf) absence; don't expect the production to stop as long as Pollard continues to see a workhorse role. Tom Brady and this Buccaneers passing game finally got cooking against the Falcons, while Calvin Ridley's big day was just another example of the reality that he's truly an every-week fantasy WR1. Basically everyone on the Titans balled out, but the likes of D'Andre Swift and Marvin Jones also deserve credit for their solid performances. Jonathan Taylor breakout RB1 szn continues; just realize the Texans have now lost twice to the Colts despite Deshaun Watson having the team knocking on the door of the end zone during the game's final moments before someone else has coughed up the ball. Additional topics include: the rise of David Montgomery, if we can trust Russ and company next week against the Rams after another dreadful performance, what to make of Jalen Hurts' big day, Travis Kelce's historically ridiculous run over the past half decade, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chargers' thrilling Thursday night victory over the Raiders and gives his analysis on Week 15's key injuries. Justin Herbert was balling pretty much all evening; hopefully the Chargers continue to run their passing game through the WRs as opposed to the RB. Each of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler were reportedly set to be on pitch counts going into this game, and the latter player was ultimately the only one to play his usual role. Marcus Mariota relieved an injured Derek Carr (groin) in style; just don't expect him to suddenly turn into a top-10 QB. Credit to Darren Waller and Josh Jacobs for each turning in more than stellar performances. Ian finishes things off with a look at injuries around the league including: James Conner, Curtis Samuel, Alex Smith, Kyle Rudolph, Robert Woods and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz welcomes on fantasy football personality and all-around superstar Peter Overzet to discuss a wide range of topics related to Week 15 and beyond. Initial discussion leads to Ian wondering if Josh Jacobs turning heel against the fantasy community could actually be a good thing. Pete is absolutely bummed that he missed out on James RB1son back in the preseason, but not as pissed as Ian still is about Dez Bryant's covid debacle. The guys discuss Drew Lock's future potential as well as who might be a viable fantasy option from the Dolphins this week. Ian gives his pitch on why kickers are stupid before discussing Week 15 expectations for Jonathan Taylor and Cam Akers. Additional topics include best and worst preseason calls, which NFL player or coach's job would you most want to take, as well as Pete's fleet shoutouts to Antonio Gibson, Laviska Shenault, D.K. Metcalf and more.
0:20 Intro 01:35 Which player/coach would you want to be? 04:03 Reaction to Josh Jacobs trolling fantasy football players? 06:32 What was your most disappointing moment of the season? 08:42 Is Drew Lock a long-term QB option? 10:52 What should the NFL adopt from the XFL? 13:12 Should any Dolphins be on the fantasy radar? 15:04 Are kickers people too? 17:34 Which RB to fade in Week 15? 19:55 Best and worst preseason calls 23:06 Quick statements on beloved NFL players
Host Ian Hartitz and PFF analyst Andrew Erickson break down every Week 15 matchup. Justin Herbert hasn't quite been the same caliber QB with so much of the passing game flowing through Austin Ekeler, but don't be scared to fire up all Chargers against the Raiders' brutal defense. Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones are both set up for success this week against the Panthers, while we also shouldn't discount Mike Davis' chances of putting together another solid performance on the other sideline. Credit to Kyle Shanahan for continuing to craft an effective offense despite his unit's injuries; don't expect the Cowboys to have an answer for Brandon Aiyuk or the 49ers' rushing attack this week. Lamar Jackson and J.K. Dobbins are suddenly looking like elite end of the season fantasy assets with a juicy Week 15 matchup against the Jets on the horizon. Additional topics include: James RB1son, Tom Brady got his deep ball back, will Ryan Tannehill have enough volume to ball out this week, has anybody made more money in the NFL while doing less than Chase Daniel, expectations for Jalen Hurts moving forward, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Ravens' epic Monday night victory over the Browns before giving his thoughts on some of the week's most popular waiver wire options. Lamar Jackson came up big when it mattered most, although this passing game remains a work in progress to put it kindly. Credit to Baker Mayfield for putting the Browns in position to win, as well as to Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb for making the most out of their opportunities all game. Ian finishes things off with waiver wire thoughts on Jalen Hurts, DeAndre Washington, Tim Patrick, Keke Coutee, and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down every Week 14 game from Sunday with a focus on usage, injuries and notes that you won't find in the box score. Tom Brady has largely fixed his deep ball, while Kirk Cousins simply didn't have enough time to get his talented receivers going this week. Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown were absolute monsters against the Jaguars to the surprise of no one. Kyler Murray's rushing usage got back on track; the opposite is true for Daniel Jones. Shout out to Drew Lock for his excellent 4-TD performance; Ian continues to think "AFC West Jameis" is one of the league's more-entertaining QBs for better and for worse. Andy Dalton and the Cowboys got themselves another W; just don't expect many more in 2020. Credit to Mitch Trubisky for his excellent day, and it's about time we put some respect on David Montgomery's name. Additional topics include: Tua's largely great performance, the Seahawks taking care of business, Jonathan Taylor's massive day, what to make of Jalen Hurt's first start, just how special is Davante Adams, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Rams' Thursday night victory over the Patriots and goes over some of the key injuries to monitor ahead of Sunday. It was Cam Akers RB1 szn all Thursday night, although at some point the Rams are going to need Jared Goff to play better than he has in recent weeks. The good news is Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp's relatively underwhelming performances shouldn't be too big of an issue moving forward; each remains an upside WR2 thanks to their copious volume. Cam Newton and the Patriots' passing game bottomed out, while the run game didn't show much reason for optimism either. Ian finishes things off with injury notes on Kenyan Drake, Todd Gurley, Christian McCaffrey, Josh Jacobs, Irv Smith, Deebo Samuel and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by ESPN NFL analyst Mike Clay. The guys start off by wondering if Jalen Ramsey should be considered the single-best CB that an expansion team would want to build around. Mike is confident that DeAndre Hopkins can overcome James Bradberry's shadow coverage, while the guys agree that this Jets matchup should get Russ and company cooking again. Don't expect Baker Mayfield's hot streak to continue against the Ravens. Michael Thomas has his hands full with Darius Slay this week, but never sit your studs people. Additional topics include: expectations for the Bills' passing game against the Steelers, can we trust D.J. Chark this week, are the Vikings actually set up well againts he Buccaneers, Deebo Samuel vs. Brandon Aiyuk, and much more.
0:20 Intro 01:16 Which CB would you pick for the next 10 years? 03:26 Can James Bradberry slow down DeAndre Hopkins? 06:54 How high to rank Seahawks passing unit vs Jets? 10:13 Will Darius Slay shut down Michael Thomas? 13:22 Will the Browns resort to running vs the Ravens? 17:44 Can you trust the Bills skill players vs the Steelers? 20:29 Should you be confident in Mike Glennon? 22:14 Can the Vikings passing game dominate the Buccaneers? 25:18 Is T.Y. Hilton worthy of a start? 28:03 Better WR in 2021: Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk?
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF analyst Dwain McFarland to break down every Week 14 matchup. Cam Akers RB1 szn might be on the horizon; just be sure to monitor his shoulder injury. Ian talks about just how great Justin Jefferson has been as a rookie, while Dwain is confident in Tom Brady and company coming out of a bye. The guys agree that Myles Gaskin should be a force during the fantasy playoffs, but questions persist regarding whether or not Kyler Murray can turn it around. Ian nearly cries on air upon being notified that Dez tested positive for covid. Additional topics include: what to make of this Colts backfield, if Chris Carson can be considered a top-12 RB against the Jets, what to make of Justin Herbert's bounce-back potential, when Raheem Mostert will get going, expectations for Taysom Hill as well as Jalen Hurts, and much, much more.

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the two games from Monday and gives his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire targets. Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers' perfect season is gone, and there's reaosn for concern with the current state of this passing game. Credit to Alex Smith and company for pulling off the upset, but unfortunately it looks like the Football Team could be without Antonio Gibson (toe) moving forward. It's Josh Allen's world; we're all just living in it. Of course, the likes of Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley are also pretty damn good at their jobs. The same can't quite be said for Nick Mullens, although the 49ers' backup QB did put forth a valiant effort in defeat. Ian concludes things with some waiver wire thoughts on the likes of Jalen Hurts, Ty Johnson, Cam Akers, Tim Patrick, Cole Kmet and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by Establish The Run cofounder Evan Silva to discuss a number of topics related to Week 13 and beyond. The guys start things out by breaking down what we should expect from Alvin Kamara moving forward with Taysom Hill under center. Evan is in agreement that D.K. Metcalf is an easy buy as the No. 1 WR you'd most want on your fantasy team for the next 10 years, but offers some additional solid candidates as well. Ian wonders if the Titans could be the No. 1 threat to the Chiefs from the AFC, but Evan is willing to give the Steelers that crown despite agreeing with PFF_George that they are a bit overrated. Additional topics include: which rookie 2020 RB would you pick first in 2021, Breshad Perriman's ideal 2021 landing spot, what to expect from the Raiders moving forward, making sense of Cam Newton's 2020 season, and much more.
01:52 What to make of Kamara with Taysom Hill under center?
05:56 Which WR would you have for the next 10 years?
08:45 Are the Titans the biggest threat to the Chiefs?
14:14 Who is the 2021 RB1 from the 2020 rookie class?
18:40 Where should Breshad Perriman sign next season?
24:32 Is Derek Carr a legitimate franchise QB?
27:44 Cam Newton still a starter?/Patriots playoff bound?
33:04 Can the Steelers hang with the Chiefs?
37:04 Is Josh Allen still a top-5 fantasy QB?
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF analyst Andrew Erickson to break down every game in Week 13. Ian is beyond upset at what Taysom Hill has done to Alvin Kamara's fantasy value, while Andrew thinks the presence of Ryan Fitzpatrick under center could produce some big performances from DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki moving forward. Every week is James RB1son week, continue to treat him as a top-10 option at the position regardless of who is under center. Please take a moment of silence in respect of Will Fuller szn officially being over. The guys believe the Raiders could bounce back in a big way this week against the Jets, while praise is heaped on the likes of Terry McLaurin, Nick Chubb and D'Andre Swift. Additional topics include: why isn't Kyler Murray running more, will Russ keep cooking, who to trust in Philadelphia, what to make of Josh Allen during the fantasy playoffs, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Seahawks' Monday night victory over the Eagles and gives his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire targets. Carson Wentz was even more brutal than the box score indicated, and it begs the question: what exactly needs to happen for Jalen Hurts to get a real chance? Russell Wilson wasn't cooking quite like usual, but he still had more than enough magic to enable D.K. Metcalf to a huge night. The Carlos Hyde and Chris Carson backfield split wasn't great (notice who was listed first). Ian finishes off the podcast with thoughts on notable waiver wire options such as Devontae Booker, Keke Coutee, Cam Akers, Kirk Cousins, Royce Freeman and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down Texans-Lions and Football Team-Cowboys before going through injuries to watch ahead of Sunday. Deshaun Watson and Will Fuller lit up the scorebard on Thursday, but we also shouldn't count out Brandin Cooks and Duke Johnson staying hot in Week 13 and beyond. Things were less smooth for the Lions; just realize Matthew Stafford continues to show off some of the best arm talent in the league on a weekly basis. It was Antonio Gibson szn Thursday afternoon, but give credit to Amari Cooper for also having a big day at Jerry World. Ian finishes the show with injury analysis on the likes of John Brown, Lamar Jackson, Chris Carson, Sam Darnold, Austin Ekeler, Myles Gaskin, Jerry Jeudy and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by Establish the Run and PFF analyst Dwain McFarland to break down every game in Week 12. Ian starts things off by noting just how productive both Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks have been since the Texans parted ways with coach Bill O'Brien. Dwain liked what he saw from Andy Dalton and believes CeeDee Lamb's success could continue on Thanksgiving. The guys take a minute to honor AJB WR1 szn before keeping it rolling with thoughts on the Colts' rookies, if we can trust Wayne Gallman this week, and whether or not there's fantasy-friendly opportunity to be had in this ever-muddled Patriots backfield. Additional topics include: Dolphins backfield situation, Denzel Mims' ridiculous air yards, Derek Carr week, what to make of Taysom Hill, how worried should we be about Alvin Kamara, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Rams' Monday night victory over the Buccaneers and goes through the week's most-popular waiver wire candidates. Tom Brady threw a pair of awful interceptions, but his condensed target share around the Bucs' top-three WRs could prove useful ahead of a cozy final regular season stretch. Jared Goff threw a whopping 51 passes, enabling both Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp to huge days. The problem: this three-headed backfield is as murky as ever. Ian closes things out with analysis on potential waiver wire additions such as Michael Pittman, Wayne Gallman, Keke Coutee, James White and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down every Week 11 game from Sunday with a focus on usage, injuries and notes that you won't find in the box score. Both Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt found the end zone against the Eagles; keep firing them up as borderline RB1s moving forward. We seemed to witness the Ravens finally free J.K. Dobbins, while AJB WR1 szn managed to come to fruition after a rough start. Deshaun Watson was absolutely marvelous in the Texans' victory over the Patriots, while Diontae Johnson kept right on balling out against the Jaguars. The Taysom Hill experiment went great from a fantasy perspective, but be careful in dubbing this group as a superior version to the Brees-led Saints offense. Additional conversation includes thoughts on: P.J. Walker's debut, Joe Burrow's injury, Aaron Rodgers' performance against the Colts, Derek Carr's nearly-great comeback win, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Seahawks' 28-21 victory over the Cardinals and goes through some of the top injuries to watch ahead of Sunday. Russell Wilson didn't put up his usual massive numbers, but he played extremely smart throughout the game and could've had a bigger performance if D.K. Metcalf hadn't dropped an easy TD. Carlos Hyde was the undisputed bell-cow back and deserves continued RB2 treatment as long as Chris Carson remains sidelined. Kyler Murray was surprisingly shut down as a rusher, and his passing production oddly didn't enable either Christian Kirk or DeAndre Hopkins to big performances. Ian finishes things up by touching on a number of injuries including: Alvin Kamara, Teddy Bridgewater, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Sammy Watkins, Davante Adams, D'Andre Swift and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by Marcus Mosher, who hosts the Locked On Cowboys and Locked On Dynasty podcasts. The guys start things off by ranking Kyler Murray as a dynasty QB before pondering who would be the top WR to own in Pittsburgh moving forward. Marcus isn't too confident in Lamar Jackson and the Ravens turning things around in 2020, but better days should be ahead. Ian gushes over D'Andre Swift's Week 10 performance, and Marcus believes we could see more big games ahead. Additional topics include: whether or not Antonio Gibson can break away from J.D. McKissic anytime soon, if Jerry Jeudy can overcome Drew Lock, if we should trust Michael Pittman, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz and PFF analyst Andrew Erickson break down all 14 games in Week 11. Expect a shootout between the Cardinals and Seahawks Thursday night, although it remains to be seen if Tyler Lockett will be healthy enough to suit up. The Texans have freed Duke Johnson, expect better production moving forward. Ian gushes over how good D'Andre Swift looked in Week 10 before Andrew points out that like it or not, we have to give J.D. McKissic some respect in fantasy land. Conversation continues with Ian begrudgingly admitting Todd Gurley deserves top-12 treatment at the position, and Andrew thinks Week 11 just might be Marquise Brown's long-awaited blowup week. Additional topics include: Tua floor game potential, what to make of the Colts' ever-evolving backfield, why Patrick Mahomes could emerge as the MVP front-runner, and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Vikings' Monday night victory over the Bears and gives his thoughts on some of the week's most-popular targets on the waiver wire. Kirk Cousins picked up the first Monday Night Football win of his career, enabling Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen to great performances along the way. Dalvin Cook didn't have his best game, but the usage was borderline erotic. It's Cordarrelle Patterson's world, we're all just living in it. Ian gives his waiver wire opinion on the likes of Salvon Ahmed, Jameis Winston, Damien Harris, Kalen Ballage, Cam Akers and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday by providing usage notes, injury analysis and plenty of actionable stats along the way. Look for both Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb to function as fantasy RB1s moving forward. Duke Johnson week didn't turn out exactly as we hoped, but the usage was better than expected. Credit to Alex Smith for playing his best game of the season, and praise should also be dished out to D'Andre Swift for his electric performance. TB12 and company put up 46 points and still didn't reach their full potential. Justin Herbert finally had a floor game, but it was still pretty solid for fantasy purposes. Ian touches on the rest of the games and highlights: Kyler Murray's amazing Hail Mary, Derek Carr playing better than the box score suggested, Big Ben putting up some serious numbers recently, Cam Newton and company's big-time win, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Colts' Thursday night win over the Titans and goes over some of the key injuries to monitor ahead of Sunday. A.J. Brown WR1 szn unfortunately came to an end, but Ian isn't worried about the Titans' stud receiver bouncing back. Derrick Henry cleared the century mark, although his lack of pass-game usage continued to be annoying. Nyheim Hines and Michael Pittman stole the show for the Colts, as Jonathan Taylor fantasy football managers reached a new level of tilt. Ian provides depth chart ramifications and injury thoughts on: Deebo Samuel, Noah Fant, Kenyan Drake, David Montgomery, T.J. Hockenson, Nick Chubb, Joe Mixon, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates. The guys start off discussing what to make of the Washington and Indianapolis backfields in Week 10 and beyond. Both Ian and Field are confident that Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt can provide high-end value together, but things aren't quite so clear in this suddenly-crowded Eagles offense. Field decides which RB he'd want to represent planet Earth if the aliens invaded tomorrow and forced us to play a football game. Ian agrees with Field's assessment that Antonio Brown might just emerge as the most fantasy-friendly WR in Tampa Bay. The guys also discuss Cam Newton's chances against the Ravens, if Justin Herbert and Joe Burrow can overcome their respectively tough Week 10 matchups, who to start on the Rams ahead of their shootout against the Seahawks, and finally who would you rather have between A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf in a neutral situation.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF and Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all 14 games in Week 10. The guys pay tribute as always to A.J. Brown being a WR1 before asking tougher questions about the respective states of the Colts run game and the rest of the Titans offense. Dwain has high expectations for Jarvis Landry moving forward, while Ian isn't afraid to go back to the well with Antonio Brown as an upside WR2 this week. Agreement is reached on D.J. Chark being a more than viable WR2 despite a potential shadow date with Jaire Alexander. Additional conversation is provided on topics including: Jerry Jeudy szn, the Seahawks-Rams' likely shootout, why J.D. McKissic is a thing, if Justin Herbert or Joe Burrow can handle their respective tough matchups, Jakobi Meyers and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Patriots' Monday night win over the Jets and provides his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire options. Cam Newton again found fantasy success thanks in large part to his legs, but we also saw a new productive player emerge from this offense in Jakobi Meyers. Credit to Joe Flacco for largely playing great until the middle of the fourth quarter. Breshad Perriman might just be the Jets WR to roster as long as Sam Darnold remains sidelined. Ian finishes off the show with waiver wire thoughts on the likes of: David Moore, J.D. McKissic, Duke Johnson, Curtis Samuel, Allen Lazard, Lamar Miller, Drew Lock and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable notes on usage, injuries and film observations. Drew Lock made things interesting again late despite having his back against the wall, and he's earned his AFC West Jameis nickname. Josh Allen outdueled Russell Wilson and company; there's no reason why we should expect Allen to stop being an elite (fantasy) QB anytime soon. Ian does his weekly AJB WR1 szn victory lab before discussing many more topics including: Lamar Jackson's up-and-down performance, how it's unfair the Chiefs combine such sound scheme with their high-level talent, Dalvin Cook's big day, will J.D. McKissic ever go away, Deshaun Watson playing better than ever, Kyler Murray being a fantasy cheatcode, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Packers' blowout victory over the 49ers and gives analysis on key injuries around the league. Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams are operating in a different universe in terms of chemistry. Don't expect Richie James to mimic Adams' production so well moving forward. Surprisingly, injury concerns didn't stop Jerick McKinnon nor Aaron Jones from receiving bell-cow roles. Ian finishes things off with injury notes on Chris Carson, T.Y. Hilton, Mark Ingram, Christian McCaffrey, Calvin Ridley, Chris Godwin and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by co-host of The Fantasy Footballers podcast Jason Moore. The guys start off by discussing whether or not this Ravens passing game can rebound before giving Ryan Tannehill his due as a true top-10 QB. Jason picks his top rookie RB to ball out the rest of the season and notes that Ezekiel Elliott is no longer a must-start RB. Additional topics include: expectations for Antonio Brown, what to make of the new-look Buccaneers backfield, Raiders-Chargers potential shootout, Christian McCaffrey's return and whether or not Cam Newton and company can get back on track against the Jets.
01:27 What to make of the Ravens offense moving forward
05:08 Will Corey Davius keep up recent production
08:25 Which rookie running back to trust the rest of the season

31:21 49ers have injuries all over the field
34:39 Can Cam Newton and Co. bounce back
Host Ian Hartitz and PFF analyst Andrew Erickson break down all 14 games ahead of Week 9. Ian starts things off by critiquing the Packers for not making a true high-end addition to their WR room in 2020, while Andrew is concerned about everyone other than James Robinson in the Jaguars offense without Gardner Minshew under center. The guys break down the Ravens and Colts' respective ever-evolving backfields before agreeing that Marvin Jones could provide some solid WR2 value during Kenny Golladay's (hip) absence. Ian puts some respect on David Montgomery's name, and Andrew thinks a Josh Allen bounce-back week could be on the horizon. The guys finish things off with thoughts on Drew Lock, Julio Jones, Derek Carr, Chase Edmonds, the Cowboys' dreadful offense, TB12 vs. Brees and much more.

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Buccaneers' Monday night victory over the Giants and provides his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire additions. Daniel Jones didn't exactly play a perfect game, but he did keep the Giants far closer than most anticipated and threw a b-e-a-utiful TD to Golden Tate to nearly force OT. Darius Slayton probably has the most reason to be pissed at Jones considering the amount of times he got open deep only to not receive a target. TB12 threw TDs to Gronk and Mike Evans, while Leonard Fournette received the heavy majority of the backfield's usage after Ronald Jones fumbled a deflected check-down. Waiver wire section includes thoughts on: Jordan Wilkins, Deejay Dallas, Zack Moss, Marvin Jones, Corey Davis, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable fantasy football takeaways. Ian starts things off with injury notes on Kenny Golladay, Darrell Henderson, Tevin Coleman and more. The game breakdowns start off with some rain filled battles, but Ian urges listeners to trust Derek Carr and this Raiders' passing game in better situations moving forward. Congrats to Tua on the win; just realize this overall offensive performance was atrocious. Lamar Jackson continues to put up gaudy rushing numbers, Joe Burrow is playing better than ever, and Patrick Mahomes went nuclear on Adam Gase and company. Ian finishes things off with thoughts on the Colts-Lions shootout, Dalvin Cook's massive game, Justin Herbert's historical rookie campaign, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Falcons' Thursday night victory over the Panthers and goes over some of the key injuries to watch ahead of Sunday. D.J. Moore didn't have the smoothest night, but luckily didn't leave his fantasy managers with a goose-egg. Teddy Bridgewater is okay after briefly leaving the game with a neck injury. Matt Ryan enabled Julio Jones to a patented performance with triple-digit yards and zero scores, but unfortunately Calvin Ridley (ankle) could be missing some time. Ian touches on an abundance of injuries ahead of Sunday including: Michael Thomas, Rams backfield, Diontae Johnson, Packers and Bengals backfields, Mark Ingram, Jamison Crowder and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by CBS NFL analyst Jamey Eisenberg to break down the top 10 fantasy storylines heading into Week 8. When CMC is back, what happens to Mike Davis? (1:08).

Patriots offense struggling to produce (20:10). Best fantasy options on the Raiders/Browns (23:00). 49ers/Seahawks: Battle of the damaged backfields (26:35). Wentz and Co. can put up points against Dallas (29:01). Super Bowl predictions (32:45).
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by fellow PFF and Establish the Run fantasy analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all 14 games of the Week 8 slate. ATL @ CAR: Matt Ryan a QB1 with Julio Jones (1:27). PIT @ BAL: Hollywood Brown will get fed (4:35).NYJ @ KC: Don’t start any Jets players if possible (7:48). TEN @ CIN: Bengals offense should explode (13:41). LA @ MIA: Move on from Cam Akers (18:48). IND @ DET: Lions passing game not living up to potential (22:56). NE @ BUF: Cam Newton or bust for the Patriots (26:47). LV @ CLV: Rashard Higgins fills OBJ’s role (31:36). MIN @ GB: Jefferson and Thielen should be started (36:27). NO @ CHI: David Montgomery not getting chunk yards (40:07). SF @ SEA: Hard to trust Jimmy G (44:37). LAC @ DEN: Broncos offense out of sync (52:29). DAL @ PHI: Cooper/Elliott only fantasy worthy Cowboys (56:48). TB @ NYG: Sterling Shepard bouncing back (1:03:16).
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Rams' 24-10 victory over the Bears and also gives his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire options. Nick Foles couldn't quite hook up with Darnell Mooney or Javon Wims on potential bombs, and A-Rob only had four targets. "Luckily" David Montgomery continued to show a slightly enhanced fantasy floor with 19 touches for 69-scoreless yards. Jared Goff and company didn't have the toughest evening at the office, but credit regardless to Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett for finding the end zone. Darrell Henderson continues to work as the offense's lead back, although Malcolm Brown isn't going anywhere. Ian finishes things up with thoughts on waiver wire options including: Chase Edmonds, Rashard Higgins, Nelson Agholor, Richard Rodgers, and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable fantasy football takeaways. Ian starts things off with injury notes on Kenyan Drake, Odell Beckham, Dionate Johnson, Jeff Wilson and more before getting to the matchups. Both Baker Mayfield and Joe Burrow put up massive numbers, but Kareem Hunt's huge snap share was a low-key major takeaway. Ian tips his hat to A.J. Brown putting forward another beastly performance before noting that both D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson have earned every-week WR2 (at-worst) treatment moving forward. Discussion continues with a look at Antonio Gibson's big day, just how absurd Davante Adams' workload has been, as well Tom Brady's very-much-alive arm. Ian finishes things off with thoughts on the Cardinals' thrilling Sunday night victory over the Seahawks.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Eagles' Thursday night comeback victory over the Giants. Carson Wentz continues to supply fantasy-friendly goodness thanks to his newfound rushing upside. Boston Scott will remain a RB2 as long as Miles Sanders is sidelined, and we should tentatively expect Travis Fulgham to continue seeing plenty of action even once Alshon Jeffery returns. Daniel Jones is also looking like a dual-threat talent these days, although the Giants' banged-up backfield is now further injured with Devonta Freeman (ankle) hurt. Kudos are given to Sterling Shepard before Ian wonders why Evan Engram doesn't have a more downfield-oriented role. Injury thoughts include notes on: DeAndre Hopkins, Joe Mixon, Noah Fant, Michael Thomas, A.J. Brown and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by former all-pro and Super Bowl winning cornerback Aqib Talib to answer Week 7’s top wide receiver/cornerback matchup questions. Are the Rams’ CBs the real deal? (1:52). Can the 49ers’ passing attack beat the Pats’ secondary? (5:09). Will Carlton Davis and Jamel Dean lock up the Raiders? (8:25). Why don’t outside corners travel to the slot? (11:18). Can Arizona keep up with the Seahawks’ WRs? (13:38). Will Michael Thomas have his way in Carolina? (16:27). Will Jaire Alexander cement himself as a top-5 CB? (18:20). Can the Broncos hang with the Chiefs? (21:03).
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF regular Andrew Erickson to break down every game from the Week 7 slate. The guys are in on Boston Scott as a fantasy RB2 over the next two weeks, but things are a bit less optimistic for anyone involved in the Giants offense at the moment. Expect both Josh Allen and Kareem Hunt to bounce back this week, while Breshad Perriman could be a sneaky DFS punt-play option. The Washington Football Team is set up well against the Cowboys defense because, like, who isn't. Further discussion includes thoughts on: CEH and Le'Veon Bell situation, if Jaguars-Chargers can be a sneaky shootout, what to make of Jimmy G's reluctance to throw downfield, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chiefs' victory over the Bills as well as the Cardinals' demolition over the Cowboys before getting in some waiver wire recommendations. Patrick Mahomes was excellent whenever asked to do pretty much anything, but Clyde Edwards-Helaire stole the show. RIP Mecole Hardman szn, but it shouldn't be too much longer that we see Tyreek Hill go without a massive performance. Better days should be ahead for Josh Allen and company in a prime Week 7 bounce-back spot against the Jets. Andy Dalton and company couldn't get anything going, and Zeke's mess-ups were particularly tough to watch. Kyler Murray and (!!!) Kenyan Drake put together big performances on the ground, although the Cardinals' passing game continued to struggle outside of DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk's lone respective chunk plays. Ian closes things out with thoughts on waiver wire targets like Boston Scott, D'Andre Swift, Jerick McKinnon, Tim Patrick, Darren Fells and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday! Ian starts things off by breaking down the impact of injuries to the likes of Raheem Mostert, Miles Sanders and Joe Mixon among others. The podcast continues with game previews consisting of advanced PFF metrics, snap rates and Ian's personal obversations after grinding out every game from Sunday. Key discussion points include thoughts on Ryan Tannehill being a legit top-10 QB, Justin Jefferson balling the hell out, what's going on with the Ravens offense compared to last season, whether or not we should expect more from Matthew Stafford moving forward, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF software engineer and senior analyst Nathan Jahnke to break down the top storylines entering Week 6 as well as some buy or sell for specific position groups utilizing PFF’s strength of schedule tool (0:20). How will the Cowboys’ offense look with Andy Dalton (1:33). Expectations for Alexander Mattison with Cook injured (3:45). Temper expectations for Joe Mixon (5:45). Odell Beckham Jr. can be trusted in fantasy (7:18). Stafford throwing deep with Golladay back (9:18). David Montgomery needs to perform vs Panthers (12:14). What to make of the Rams backfield (13:47). Terry McLaurin can still produce with Smith/Allen at QB (15:33). Will the Packers keep rolling against the Buccaneers (17:54). Tom Brady can bounce back vs Packers (20:00). Buy or Sell: QBs (22:05). Buy or Sell: RBs (25:44). Buy or Sell: WRs (30:35).
Host Ian Hartitz and PFF/Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland break down every game in Week 6 with a focus on actionable fantasy football advise. The guys start things off marveling over Will Fuller before wondering if Terry McLaurin and Darius Slayton can overcome their respective atrocities under center. Ian explains why it's Jamison Crowder's world, we're all just living in it. Dwain sees value for both Robby Anderson and D.J. Moore moving forward. Discussion continues with a look at David Montgomery, James Robinson and Joe Mixon before Ian and Dwain debate what exactly to make of Chase Claypool moving forward. The pod finishes up with a look at the Monday night doubleheader featuring Cowboys-Cardinals and Broncos-Patriots.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Saints' 30-27 win over Chargers before giving his thoughts on the week's waiver wire targets. Justin Jackson emerged as the RB1 on the night, and Ian expects him to have the best chance of consistently providing fantasy value in this backfield. It's Mike Williams' world; we're all just living in it, and hopefully Keenan Allen (back) is okay. Ian wraps up the recap with thoughts on Taysom Hill's hilarious usage before providing waiver wire thoughts on: Matthew Stafford, Andy Dalton, Alexander Mattison, Chase Claypool and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 11 games from Sunday with a focus on the impact of injuries, new workload trends and top performers. The Panthers continued to get going through the air and Ian has an idea as to why the offense is inexplicably humming better without Christian McCaffrey. Credit is given to Derek Carr and the Raiders on their big win, while Ian also lauds the performance of Chase Claypool *and* Eagles WR Travis Fulgham. We might need to temper Lamar Jackson overall QB1 expectations while his rushing usage remains so low, but things look great for Deshaun Watson and company in the future. Ian finishes things off with looks at Cowboys-Giants and the Seahawks' thrilling Sunday night win over the Vikings.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Bears' thrilling (okay, maybe not) Thursday night win over the Buccanneers. TB12 provided a number of meme-worthy moments, but fantasy football managers shouldn't worry too much about the future of the offense. Both Ronald Jones and David Montgomery are looking more and more like three-down backs, while Allen Robinson and Mike Evans remain locked in as alpha No. 1 WRs. Ian wraps up the podcast with a look at injuries around the league including: Julio Jones, Zack Moss, Kareem Hunt, Joe Mixon, Le'Veon Bell, A.J. Brown, Cam Akers and more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by The Action Network's director of predictive analytics and three-time No. 1 ranked FantasyPros NFL expert Sean Koerner. The guys break down some of the most relevant injury and workload influenced situations around the league including: the Chargers offense without Austin Ekeler, the Bears offense with Tarik Cohen sidelined, whether or not anyone can emerge in Indianapolis besides Jonathan Taylor, what to expect from the Cardinals backfield moving forward, and much more. Ian and Sean finish things off with their favorite DFS picks of the week including: Teddy Bridgewater, David Johnson, Eric Ebron, Marquise Brown and more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by fellow PFF analyst Andrew Erickson to break down all 15 games from the Week 5 slate. Ian starts things off by going over the laundry list of injuries impacting the Buccaneers offense, while Andrew points out the future direction of both the Ravens and Falcons backfields. Ian shines some light on Devin Singletary's fantastic start to the season before imploring fantasy football managers to trust Josh Jacobs despite this week's projected negative game script. The guys agree that Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods don't possess the same sort of ceiling inside of the Rams' new-look run-first offense. Ian loses his composure when discussing D'Ernest Johnson as a waiver wire target. Andrew and Ian finish things off with discussion on various player including Michael Gallup, Damien Harris, Jonathan Taylor, Greg Olsen, Latavius Murray and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chiefs' win over the Patriots as well as the Packers' beatdown over the Falcons before providing some updates on injuries and key waiver wire notes. Patrick Mahomes' underwhelming performance didn't stop Tyreek Hill from having a solid game, although the same can't be said for the influence that Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham had on their pass-catchers. Aaron Rodgers' pissed-off victory tour continued in a big way, but unfortunately Matt Ryan and company couldn't even keep things close. Injury updates cover the likes of Nick Chubb, Austin Ekeler, Mike Evans and Christian McCaffrey. Waiver wire thoughts on: D'Ernest Johnson, Justin Jackson, Tim Patrick, Mo Alie-Cox and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable fantasy-football takeaways from what took place. The Cowboys-Browns' matchup sure produced a lot of offensive firepower, but could it be time to consider selling high on OBJ? What happened to Darrell Henderszn? Ian breaks down what went wrong with Kenyan Drake and the Cardinals, what went right with the Vikings' suddenly-leathal offense, and how we should approach the Colts and Bears backfields moving forward. Includes additional thoughts on what to make of the Austin Ekeler and Nick Chubb injuries.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Broncos' surprisingly-entertaining win over the Jets. Melvin Gordon dominated snaps and his game-clinching TD sent fantasy managers home happy. Both QBs had their share of mishaps, although at least they managed to enable Tim Patrick and Jamison Crowder to solid performances. Ian finishes the show with injury updates around the league on players including: Allen Lazard, Kareem Hunt, Odell Beckham, Calvin Ridley, Chris Godwin, Miles Sanders and more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by Action Network and FantasyLabs senior analyst Chris Raybon. The guys start things off with a round of start/sit questions which features some Josh Allen love, optimism for Deshaun Watson moving forward, and questions surrounding whether or not Jared Goff still has big-time boom ability. Things continue with a look at waiver-wire phenoms Mike Davis and Darrell Henderson before Chris points out the potential for DeVante Parker to have a boom week. Ian's all in on OBJ against the Cowboys' swiss-cheese secondary, and Chris talks up Noah Fant ahead of Thursday night's likely classic. The podcast concludes with top DFS picks featuring thoughts on Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Russell Wilson, T.J. Hockenson, and more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF and Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all 16 Week 4 contests. Baker Mayfield and the Browns haven't been throwing the ball much in recent weeks, but the Cowboys might just present the sort of porous defense and high-octane offense to enable OBJ and Jarvis Landry to big games. T.J. Hockenson szn? Dwain sure thinks so, and he's got #numbers to back it up. Both Ian and Dwain agree that Justin Jefferson should be locked in as the priority Week 4 waiver climb, but Tee Higgins shouldn't be too far behind. The guys give James Robinson some love without freaking out too much, and ultimately finish things off with a look at Eagles-49ers and Falcons-Packers.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chiefs' 34-20 win over the Ravens. Lamar Jackson's evening didn't go quite as planned, although drops and a few missed opportunities to Marquise Brown played a large role. Patrick Mahomes was the star of the evening, but one of his receiver's production might not be all that sustainable. Ian finishes things off with potential waiver wire additions such as: Justin Jefferson, Rex Burkhead, Tee Higgins, Allen Lazard, Brandon Aiyuk and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the key fantasy takeaways from the Dolphins' Thursday night win over the Jaguars. Includes thoughts on Gardner Minshew's rough performance after the week-long hype and what that means for his fantasy future, and James Robinson's stellar game. Ian then moves on to talk about this weekend's slate of games, and who you should be starting come Sunday.
