The first week of the inaugural XFL season has come and gone, and the Against the Spread hosts are ready to turn the page on Week 1.

The latest on the Dallas Cowboys, Mel Tucker, Big 12 Draft Prospects, and more
In this week’s episode of PFN’s NFL Draft Insiders, Tony Pauline and Andy Herman discuss an interesting bit of news regarding Jerry Jones’ plans for the Cowboys’ draft. Are they looking to make a move up in the first round and if so, who could they be targeting? And beyond the draft, what are the Cowboys looking to do in free agency? Tony gives us the latest on what he’s hearing out of Dallas. The duo also talks about Mel Tucker and whether he was the right pick for Michigan State University. Was this all handled the right way? And where do the Colorado Buffaloes go from here? And more importantly, what’s in store for the Spartans and Tucker with possible violations coming down from the NCAA? Tony and Andy give their thoughts on everything that went down over the past few days.  Turning towards the 2020 NFL Draft, Tony breaks down some prospects from the Big 12, including TCU defensive tackle Ross Blacklock. He also reveals who he believes is the most overrated Big 12 prospect headed into April. Andy also gives his thoughts on several prospects who many are hyping up in the media rounds. Finally, the pair talks a little free agency and how the NFL Draft affects the market. They also get into specifics, including what they think New York Jets should do with WR Robby Anderson, especially considering that there is a strong wide receiver class. Be sure to tune in this week for an all-new episode of PFN’s NFL Draft Insiders with Tony Pauline and Andy Herman for all of this, plus a few random thoughts regarding the PFN Draft Party in Las Vegas and…the Westminster Dog Show.

Nosebleed Seats Podcast: Philip Rivers and Chargers part ways
This week hosts Eric Chiofalo and Zach Wolchuk take a look at where Tom Brady and Philip Rivers could potentially end up during free agency. The Philip Rivers era in Los Angeles officially ended, could Brady be the next man up in L.A? Tayson Hill wants to be a starting quarterback and it looks to be his ultimate goal. Rumors are swirling about the New Orleans Saints being interested in Hill as their future starter. Drew Brees has yet to confirm if he will be returning this season, but the Saints have no quarterbacks on their roster at the moment. Will Hill get his chance to shine? Or could this be his potential downfall? Eric and Zach round off the podcast by diving into the potential 17-game regular season. Will the NFLPA and the NFL come to an agreement, and if so, how far down the line could this be implemented?

Handle Your Business: Will the 49ers get rid of Jimmy Garoppolo?
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I will discuss speculation from ESPN that the San Francisco 49ers are entertaining signing Tom Brady and getting rid of Jimmy Garoppolo. There is a window for San Francisco to shed Garoppolo without salary-cap severe consequences. We will also discuss an extension in Los Angeles for Anthony Lynn and what that might say about the Chargers' direction with the quarterback. The 49ers are restructuring Kwon Alexander's contract to gain more salary cap room, Eric Weddle's retirement from the Los Angeles Rams, and the cap ramifications of that and a ranking of the best free agents available. Both Tony Pauline and Benjamin Allbright have reported extensively on ProFootballNetwork.com on potential destinations for Brady. But does the last 10 minutes of Super Bowl LIV justify the 49ers cutting ties with Garoppolo to try and sign the six-time Super Bowl winner? And could Garoppolo make a sensational return to New England as a result?

Against the Spread: XFL Week 1 best bets and Oscars breakdown
As soon as the Super Bowl came to an end, Pro Football Network and the trusty betting crew turned their attention to the inaugural season of the XFL. Against the Spread co-hosts, Ryan Gosling and Jason Sarney returned to record an action-packed episode breaking down each of the four XFL matchups and even threw out their DFS lineups for the week. With a limited slate in Week 1, they were still able to find some best bets for the show. With a light betting card, the guys took the opportunity to break down the next big betting event this weekend, the 92nd Academy Awards! For the first time in nearly 20 years, the XFL will once again take its rightful place on our televisions. With Vince McMahon guarantying us that he has a three-year plan, at least, we can embrace the league without the fear of being put through another AAF fiasco. Ryan made it clear that he has the most confidence in the Dallas Renegades this weekend. With an experienced winner at the helm in Bob Stoops and the "godfather of the air-raid" Hal Mumme calling the plays, the Renegades have set themselves up for success. Jason, on the other hand, finds being a Dolphin fan stressful enough, so he will watch and enjoy the XFL. The duo agrees that the Tampa Bay Vipers have the best uniforms in the league, but they cannot come to terms on the Wildcats team name. Then, when the first week's games were broken down, the guys decided to hand out some of their favorite Oscar bets. Yes, you can bet on the Oscars. With some inside information coming from Ryan, the hosts decided that the Joker could shock the world and upset 1917 come this Sunday. They disagree on the Irishman, but that doesn't stop Jason from sharing some of his famous random facts. If you like Joe Pesci, then you will love this episode. It might not be the NFL, but the Academy Awards will bring the heat!

Any Given Friday: Quarterback roulette and Tom Brady
This week the Any Given Friday trio is finally back together, and we go through multiple possibilities for NFL Free agency. Could Tom Brady be out? His Hulu ad was a huge let down from a tease post on last Friday. It seems like Brady could be on his way out in New England, but could he stay? We also play quarterback matchmaking, and list who we think are perfect fits for each other. Cam Newton and the Chicago Bears? Alex Smith, to return?

Handle Your Business: Richard Sherman on the CBA
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I take a look at Richard Sherman's comments on the negotiations on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NFL and the NFL Players Association. Sherman reacted to this report about the state of the talks. I also take a look at Antonio Brown's apology and what sort of discipline NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will hand out. There's also reports about when Goodell will meet with Cleveland Browns' defensive end Myles Garrett to talk with him before ruling on any further discipline. Plus, the Carolina Panthers fill out their coaching staff. Sherman also took aim the NFL over expanding the season to 17 games and questioned the league's commitment to player safety. Will the season be extended or will the NFLPA agree to a 17-game season after significant concessions? Comment below or tweet me @temptherat on Twitter.

Against The Spread Podcast: Super Bowl prop bet special
Jason Sarney and Ryan Gosling went all out in their Against The Spread podcast Super Bowl prop bets special! The duo broke down several aspects of wagering on Super Bowl 54 this Sunday in Miami Gardens when the Kansas City Chiefs will face the San Francisco 49ers at Hard Rock Stadium. Super Bowl prop bets are full of ways to make a profit while enjoying football's grandest event. When you listen to Gosling break down the historical outcomes of the pre-game coin toss, you know you are in for a show with hoards of betting suggestions and information. Gosling has even mathematically figured out the Gatorade liquid color frequency of the post-game victory splashes since the tradition began. Also, if you are wondering, Tails historically hits 53% of the time in Super Bowl tosses. So go for broke, says Gosling. Sarney is staying away from this play, as his heart can't take heading into the game already down. Moving on, and still, before the ball is even kicked, Sarney analyzes why pop sensation Demi Lovato could be pacing for an "over" in the national anthem time. Sarney is going against the historical data Gosling pulled up on Lovato's last five live appearances in which she sang the epic song. As the show will detail, four of her previous five renditions ran under the mark, which is set at 1 minute and 59 seconds. However, Sarney argues that in the musically and cultural epicenter that is Miami, and in the presence of Halftime performers Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, Lovato will no doubt need to bring it, and show off the pipes. Look for an elongated final note, as well as a potential dramatic longer-than-usual pause before the word, brave, and you have the recipe for two minutes. A cool cover that would impress Miami music queen, Gloria Estefan, who also happens to be a small stake-owner in the Miami Dolphins. We all love a comeback story, and after a tumultuous year, Demi is back! Lovato and the over, all day. As the duo arguably spent way too much time analyzing Lovato's prop market and career, another lucrative wager presents itself in the performer's microphone placement. This one you have to tune in for, but a visual clue has presented itself already about where one co-host's bet will be with this prop play. The guys also realized there is a football game to be played, and they have you covered there as well in all marketplaces, including Daily Fantasy with Draft Kings, game props, and player props with FanDuel, as well as the standard game wagering action on the lines and the over-under. In total, there are close to one hundred plays that were thrown out there for those auditing with pen and paper or busy thumbs recording the guys' lean. Whether it be your overplays in running back or wide receiver yardage, quarterback touchdown passes on the player props side, or game props like 2-pt conversion attempts, Sarney and Gosling hit their mark in Against The Spread's 2020 final. The tables are set, and there are a few days to get your wagers in and do not do so without taking some time to listen to the guys' breakdown every way to line your pockets with lime-green profit. Lime-green...think about it.  That may be the most aesthetically pleasing in the aqua backdrop of Hard Rock Stadium and those clear waters of South Beach miles away from the game itself. Enjoy Super Bowl 54, and thank you for tuning in all season to Against the Spread.

Any Given Friday Podcast: Super Bowl LIV predictions
The time is finally here, and the 100th season of the NFL is almost at a close. The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs will play for it all this Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. During the podcast, Eric and I give our final predictions on who we think will win the game and breakdown the matchup on both sides. Will it be the motto "defense wins championships" or has Patrick Mahomes proved he could be the man to stop the 49ers' defensive tear? We also touch on the death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and the seven others that perished in the tragic helicopter crash — detailing what Kobe meant to the sports world outside of just the NBA.

Handle Your Business: Gambling at an NFL stadium?
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I will take a look at the proposal Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder will make to Maryland legislators for the right to operate a gaming license at a new stadium built on the site where the Redskins' current stadium sits. With the official announcement that Raiders relocated to Las Vegas, I will look back at how that stadium deal came together and how it might be a road map for future NFL stadium deals. The NFL released its latest numbers on concussions, and I take a look at what they mean for the rules changes they've recently made and the prospects of a more extended regular season. And some news about two interesting hires for offensive coordinator made this week. If the state of Maryland accepts Snyder's proposal for gambling, would it be a fully-fledged casino with slots? Would it just be a sportsbook? Would it be open on gamedays? What will the league think of one of the owners running a gambling establishment? Will the taxes collected partially fund the new stadium?

Nosebleed Seats: Championship Sunday review and a look towards the future?
This week, Eric and Zach take on the AFC and NFC championship games and look towards the future for the Green Bay Packers and Tennesee Titans. The two also mention that Jimmy Garrappolo deserves more respect than his eight pass attempts show. Could the 49ers need Jimmy G to secure a Super Bowl LIV victory? Or will the team ride out with their elite running back room?

Handle Your Business: Why Jason Garrett is the right hire
This week's Handle Your Business makes a case for Jason Garrett joining the New York Giants as an offensive coordinator and why it's a great idea. I also look at the Carolina Panthers big week that featured a significant departure and major addition. So what does it say about Cam Newton and the Panthers' fortunes for next season? There's also news about Philip Rivers that points to a new team for him in 2020. Garrett's time as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys featured a lot of near misses and a lot of mockery of his record. I explain why fans should push that to 1 side and focus on Garrett's history as an assistant coach, his ability to develop quarterbacks and the fact that Garrett won't have Jerry Jones looking over his shoulder at everything he does!

Any Given Friday Podcast: Antonio Brown, Aaron Hernandez, and Super Bowl picks
This week, Eric Wiedeke joins me as we discuss the latest news around Antonio Brown and the Aaron Hernandez documentary on Netflix. Brown was recently involved in an incident on IG Live, where he yelled at his "Baby Mama" and police while accusing her of attempting to steal his Bently. Multiple people on Twitter have asked if Brown needs to seek help, and after Drew Rosenhaus dropped Brown as a client on Thursday, he stated to the NFLPA that he would only work with Brown again if he gets help. We also talked about the legal battles of Hernandez and the issues he faced during his lifetime before committing suicide in prison at the age of 27. A new documentary about Hernandez has surfaced on Netflix and brought the case of Hernandez back in the news. We finish by giving our final picks for who we believe will make the Super Bowl!

Handle Your Business: Why won't the NFL hire minority head coaches?
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, we will look at the case of Eric Bieniemy and why the NFL won't hire black head coaches. Bieniemy, a highly-regarded assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs, looks set to miss out on all five openings if reports from ProFootballNetwork.com's Tony Pauline and Benjamin Allbright about the Cleveland Browns job are correct. So why is that the case? We will also look at significant staff changes with the Los Angeles Rams. What does the Matt Rhule contract say about David Tepper and the direction of the Carolina Panthers? And the XFL released its rules this week, and I take a look at which rules the NFL should adopt. Does the Rooney rule still work for minority coaches in the NFL? How can it be improved? And are black coaches getting a fair chance in these interviews?

Against the Spread: NFL Divisional Playoffs Betting Picks
We are down to the final eight teams, and the NFL Divisional Playoffs Betting preview show will get you ready! The guys at Against the Spread are coming off a collective 8-5 Wild Card weekend, so the momentum is again on their side heading into a weekend of NFL playoff football. Ryan and Jason see some tight matchups over the slate of four games, and there are even some savvy future plays and prop bets for the taking. There is the usual fun and, more importantly, profitable plays from the international pair.

Any Given Friday Podcast: Tua declares for the 2020 NFL Draft
Tua Tagovailoa has officially declared for the 2020 NFL Draft. With this news not being too surprising, Corey Ashburn, Eric Wiedeke, and I look at the options for him in the draft. Of course, the main talking point is what it would take for the Miami Dolphins to move up for Tua if they feel he is their guy. We also discuss the hiring of Matt Rhule to the Carolina Panthers. It's a seven, yes seven, year deal for Rhule, and he was very enthusiastic and happy during his opening press conference. The podcast finishes up with an argument on which veteran quarterbacks should hang it up for good. Things get heated when Tomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. is brought into the discussion.

Nosebleed Seats Podcast: Coaching spots filling up fast
This week after a holiday break, the Nosebleed Seats Podcast is back for its first episode of 2020. During their break, not much happened unless you're under a rock. Things went wild with coaching hires, and early on Tuesday, we learned that Matt Rhule would be the head coach of the Carolina Panthers?! and Joe Judge to the New York Giants. Of course, there was Cowboys conversation with the Dallas Cowboys signing Mike McCarthy as their new head coach. This was done extremely swift and clean from a hiring standpoint. When it came to firing Jason Garrett, the Cowboys took forever.

Handle Your Business: Why is NFL attendance down?
This week on Handle Your Business, the figures are in on attendance at NFL games for this season, and the numbers are surprising. Why is NFL attendance down to its lowest point for 15 years? Also, we take a look at the significant changes for the Washington Redskins staff and the departure of an NFL stalwart in Detroit. And the Chicago Bears ink a deal for one of its defensive stars. So what can the NFL do to change the slide in people coming through the turnstiles? I will look at some of the factors that NFL teams can't do anything about because it drives there improving television ratings but also look at the things the owners could do to enhance the game-day experience.

I will also take a look at not one but two contract extensions for punters as well as some interesting moves from the Atlanta Falcons that start to work on the serious cap issues they have.

This week it's talk about which playoff teams didn't hit the ceiling they were projected at. Why did teams like the Cleveland Browns and Dallas Cowboys fail? Is it just coaching or something more specific?  We finished with talk surrounding the potential Adam Gase burner account on Twitter, WyattV18, and the potential outlook on free agency for the Dolphins.

Handle Your Business: Franchise tag values
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I discuss the report that Jameis Winston will return to the Bucs and likely get tagged to talk franchise tag values for each position. We will also discuss the beginning of the churn of assistant coaches that goes on this time of year by reviewing both reports from PFN's new NFL insider Benjamin Allbright on Wade Phillips and Jim Schwartz. We will also discuss the latest about Bruce Allen's position with the Washington Redskins. So there will be lots of discussion by fans and pundits the next few months about using either the franchise or transition tags to prevent coveted players from hitting the open market. But just what does that cost, and who are the most expensive players to tag?

Any Given Friday Podcast: Monday night football, Tom Coughlin, and Pro Bowl
In a solo podcast, Corey Ashburn carries the Any Given Friday torch for this week. He tackles the upcoming Monday night football game and talks about the recent firing of Tom Coughlin.  Corey notes in the podcast that the "Old School" mentality in football is no longer relevant. Unfortunately, Tom Coughlin's tenure in Jacksonville ended this way, but it was time.  Lastly, Corey covers the Pro Bowl and why fans will vote for their favorite players on their favorite teams. He even mentions the fact that the Pro Bowl (fan-voted) is used for the Hall of Fame voting.

In a special second episode of the week, I try to clear up the NFC playoff picture with four teams tied at 11-3 by picking who will win and who could lose in Week 16. There will also be talk about Jarvis Landry wanting out of Cleveland and the utter shambles of the Browns season. Terrell Suggs was claimed on Tuesday, who got him (it wasn't the Ravens) and why it was a brilliant move for that team.  So of the four teams at 11-3 in the NFC, Green Bay, San Francisco, New Orleans and Seattle, which is the most likely to win or lose. Could all four teams win and head to the final Sunday of the season tied?

Handle Your Business: NFL needs to copy MLB's drug policy
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I examine Major League Baseball's drug policy and why the NFL should copy it for the next collective bargaining agreement. Baseball and it's players association reached a deal this week to radically reshape their drug policy on both marijuana and opioids, and it could be a template for the NFL and it's drug policy. I will also discuss the big story of 10 NFL players charged with defrauding the league's health care problem. The next port of call for Terrell Suggs after the Arizona Cardinals waived him. And whether the L.A. Chargers trading for Cam Newton makes sense in terms of their salary cap situation.

Against the Spread Podcast: NFL Week 15 totals, props and ATS picks
This week, the Against the Spread podcast makes its triumphant return after a two-week hiatus. Hosts Ryan Gosling and Jason Sarney come back with a vengeance with a stacked card for their NFL Week 15 picks. With a number of big spreads and totals, the guys are expecting some fireworks this week. As always, they also found a way to talk about the Miami Dolphins and Jason's love for Minkah Fitzpatrick! Breaking down every single game on the NFL Week 15 slate, a couple of spots jumped out at them. Ryan has a strong opinion on both the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders games. Oakland will be playing their final game in their stadium before moving to Las Vegas, and the Seahawks will be hoping to bounce back in a big way after a disappointing loss to the Rams.  Jason also pours his heart out regarding the success that Ryan Tannehill has been able to have in Tennesse. Without changing the topic of conversation too much, he also confesses how much he misses Minkah on his Dolphins team. Ryan takes the opportunity to say his goodbyes to Jason Garrett and sounds like a legitimately defeated man when talking about his Cowboys and their potential in the playoffs.  The podcast has made an impressive six units on the season! Pro Football Network's betting team is currently up nearly 30 units on the season! We will look to add to that with our NFL Week 15 picks.

Any Given Friday Podcast: A look at head coach landing spots
This week on Any Given Friday, Eric Wiedeke, Corey Ashburn and I cover all the potential head coaching changes for the offseason.  With the NFC East taking up at least three coaching jobs, who could each team land? The Cowboys are rumored to be after college coaches Matt Rhule, Urban Meyer, and of course, Lincoln Riley. The Giants will most likely be in the race for Ron Rivera and the Redskins are rumored to like Eric Bienemy of the Kansas City Chiefs. We finish with a surprise (potential) head coaching vacancy.

On this week's Handle Your Business, I take a look at the NFL coaching carousel as it begins to spin and how the turnover in the college ranks could affect it as well. Who is on the hot seat and who could go where. I also look at the big news out of Philadelphia with not one but two contract extensions. One of them is not a surprise, the other a bit more. Also, a look at some exciting news from Mike Garafalo of the NFL Network about Bruce Allen's position with the Redskins, some sad news about Terrelle Pryor, and a look at Nick Foles' contract after a disastrous outing on Sunday that saw him bench. Which coaches could be out of a job at the end of this season? Jason Garrett? Ron Rivera? Pat Shurmur? What happens if another team hires them as a coach or an assistant? What about college coaches moving to the NFL? And could we see fired college head coaches end up in the NFL as assistants like Dirk Koetter once did?

Handle Your Business: How would a 17th NFL game work?
On this week's Handle Your Business, I tell you how the 17th regular-season game the NFL is likely to add will work. I talked to one of my old friends in Richmond about this week and figured it out over an hour's conversation. I also look at Le'Veon Bell's frustration with the NFL's random drug testing system and whether it's justified. The NFL had another refereeing controversy in the Colts-Texans Thursday night game, and I take a quick look at that as well as the end of the fallout from the Browns-Steelers brawl with some good news for Myles Garrett for next season.So how do you add a 17th game and keep the scheduled balance? What about the places these games would be played. The NFL signaled that they would expand the international series games, but you can't play that many extra games abroad. So, where in the United States, could they play these neutral site games? I will give you some suggestions.

Eric believes the Chiefs are becoming too Pat Mahomes dependent, and they are quickly becoming a disappointment. Cowboys Conversation: Did the Cowboys learn from mistakes in the Vikings game? Hopefully, but you can never really trust the Cowboys to adjust. Wolchuk thinks they can go to Foxborough, but we all know that's not happening.

Handle Your Business: Kaepernick workout controversy
During this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I take a look at the Colin Kaepernick workout controversy after the former San Francisco quarterback pulled out of the NFL's scheduled workout to conduct one of his own at another facility. I also discuss the suspensions of Myles Garrett, Maurkice Pouncey, and Larry Ogunboji in the wake of the brawl at the end of Thursday night's Cleveland-Pittsburgh game. Then I take a look at the big news that the NFL and NFL Players Association are nearing a deal on the next Collective Bargaining Agreement. There are significant concessions on both sides that could guarantee labor peace right before the subsequent TV contract negotiations. The NFL announced on Tuesday that they would host a workout for Kaepernick at the Atlanta Falcons practice facility in Flowery Branch, Ga. Arguments between the NFL and Kaepernick's representatives over the timing of the workout, access to the media, and other issues. Was the NFL being unfair or Kaepernick being too demanding of the league?

Against the Spread Podcast: Week 11 NFL picks betting preview
Ryan Gosling and Jason Sarney of the Against The Spread podcast are back with their Week 11 NFL Picks and betting options. As a betting team, the crew at Pro Football Network are up over eight units of profit heading into Gosling and Sarney's Week 11 NFL picks and hope to continue to momentum with several teaser options.  The duo will be banking on the league's top runner all the way to cover victory in Carolina as well.  The Week 11 slate mixes several teaser options, but they play the co-hosts love the most is the Christian McCaffrey-led Carolina Panthers. McCaffrey is arguably the best running back in the league. He was coming off of a 108-yard performance with a touchdown last week, and some may say he had an off-day. The guys like McCaffrey to slash this weak Falcons defense to help the Panthers coast and cover in this NFC South matchup.

Nosebleed Seats Podcast: NFL Week 10 and a cry for the dismissal of Jason Garrett
On this week's episode, Against the Spread hosts, Ryan Gosling and Jason Sarney, step in to substitute for Eric Chiofalo and Zach Wolchuk. The guys give a breakdown of some of the biggest games during the NFL Week 10 season, while also breaking down the future of the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins. After a brutal loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Ryan lays out the path for the dismissal of longtime Cowboys head coach Jason Garett. Garett has a .566 win percentage with Dallas, but is 2-3 in the playoffs and never made it further than the NFC Championship game. They also discuss the brutal few weeks the Miami Dolphins have had regarding their draft position. With a win against the Colts and the Steelers all of a sudden surging after four straight wins, where will the Dolphins end up picking in the 2020 NFL Draft? They end the show comparing their top five teams in the NFL. Quite a bit of disagreement between the two hosts, as Ryan's top team, sits at the tail end of Jason's list.

The guys discuss the status of the Lions' quarterback position and tackle what the Lions will do at running back.  In their weekly Who Do You Love segment, the guys analyze which player they want more in Week 11 at each position.

Handle Your Business: London calling the NFL?
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I tackle the report that the NFL was interested in moving the Los Angeles Chargers to London, England permanently. Currently, the Chargers are slated to play next year in the new stadium built by the Los Angeles Rams in Englewood, Calif. To examine the viability of an NFL franchise in London, I talk with ProFootballNetwork.com video producer and Birmingham, England-based Miami Dolphins' fan Niamh O'Connor. I also talk about the stories broken by Tony Pauline about the return of N.Y. Jets owner Woody Johnson and the implications for Adam Gase. There's even breaking news on Dak Prescott's contract as well as updates on both Antonio Brown and last week's big story, Trent Williams. In the discussion about London, Ms. O'Connor and I look at the attractiveness of the city as a place to live, the possible difficulties with travel, and perhaps the most important factor in any franchise's ability to succeed. The nature of NFL fandom in the United Kingdom. Will fans who adopted other NFL teams drop them to support the team in London. Will the team be able to generate the necessary interest in leaner years.

Against the Spread Podcast: Week 10 picks betting preview
Ryan Gosling and Jason Sarney of the Against The Spread podcast are back with their Week 10 Picks and betting options. The co-hosts had another quality performance going 4-1 during Week 9, making the 2019 record a money-making 23-14-1.  Gosling and Sarney like several high-scores this week for some indoor and non-weather affected contests. However, before making those Week 10 picks, make sure to check for intangibles like wind, cold, and potential precipitation that may alter aspects of the game, such as field goals and even the dreaded point after attempt these days.  Mahomes Returns for Chiefs in Music City After missing the last two games due to a dislocated knee cap, Kansas City super-Quarterback Patrick Mahomes makes his triumphant return to the Chiefs on the road against the Tennessee Titans.   The Chiefs look to get that potent offense back to normal with their leader. Although weapons like Tyreek Hill didn't miss too much of their production with back-up quarterback Matt Moore, gaudy stats can be a weekly trend heading into the fantasy playoff race with Mahomes back under center.  Check out the rest of their Week 10 picks and be sure to head to www.profootballnetwork.com later today for Jason's prop plays of the week, where there is a seasonal profitability margin of a tad more than five units!

Any Given Friday Podcast: Where could Cam Newton land and tank updates
Cam Newton's future could come into question as he had season officially ended after being put on injured reserve. It will continue to be Kyle Allen season and potentially the end of Newton's career with the Panthers. During our podcast, Corey, Eric, and I discuss the potential teams that Newton could be traded to or signed with during the offseason.  The New England Patriots also lost in a blowout to the Baltimore Ravens, and we discussed the potential for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl. Could Lamar Jackson and the running game behind Mark Ingram win the Super Bowl? They are on a roll right now, and they have always been kryptonite for the Patriots teams. We finish by discussing the tank updates. With three 1-win teams and three 2-win teams, will it take 1 (or zero in the Cincinnati Bengals case) to win the number 1 pick and potentially Tua Tagovailoa? With that potential, we discuss if the Atlanta Falcons will ruin the opportunity for a top pick with the Miami Dolphins. Could the Dolphins win more games, and if so, will they be a landing spot for Cam Newton in the future?

Nosebleed Seats Podcast: NFL Week 9 review and Cam Newton placed on IR
This week, the Nosebleed Seats duo Eric and Zach kick off their show by taking a look back at NFL Week 9. With the Baltimore Ravens beating the New England Patriots on Sunday night football, Wolchuk believes they are the team to beat in the NFL. The Ravens did blow out the Patriots and control their destiny with star QB Lamar Jackson. Eric is a fan of what the Texans were able to pull off with all the injuries they’ve had. He is in love with Deshaun Watson and says that Baker Mayfield doesn't look good after his post-game press conference.   During the podcast, they also dive into what's happening in Carolina. It looks like Cam Newton could be done with the Panthers, and if so, could he be a huge offseason acquisition for a QB needy team? Or could Newton's time in the NFL be up with recent injuries?   They closed the show with their top-five NFL teams thru 9 weeks. They both agree on their top team in the league, but things get testy during the segment. Join the show that everyone can afford to listen to, the Nosebleed Seats!

Handle Your Business: The chaos around Trent Williams
This week on Handle Your Business, I look at the Trent Williams chaos ending and the craziness that ensued after he reported. Williams spoke to reporters about the chaos for nearly 20 minutes and detailed the major health scare he had with Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP). I also talk about the trade deadline and what happened with Michael Bennett, what didn't happen with A.J. Green and Jamal Adams, and the future behind Josh Gordon being waived by the Patriots and then claimed by the Seahawks. Gordon is making the Seahawks receiving group better if healthy. It will be one to watch for the rest of the season.  The Williams chaos continues as he is also unhappy with his contract in addition to his frustration with the Redskins front office and the medical staff. I will delve into that and the request by the Redskins for a review by the NFL Management Council and the NFL Players Association of how Williams' situation was handled. The Trent Williams chaos doesn't seem to be ending, and it is stunning that the team did not move him at the deadline.

Leading the Week 9 picks, Garner Minshew looks to continue to the magic of his serendipitous run since Nick Foles' Week 1 injury.  This time the campaign goes intercontinental in London against the Houston Texans in a must-win AFC South match for the Jaguars to stay in the playoff conversation.  Make sure to lock any betting play in before breakfast, as this is an early AM start sneaks up on the late-night crowd.  Minshew has helped in running back Leonard Fournette, who has bounced back to top-end form in 2019, as the 3rd year veteran is rushing for the 2nd most yards in the NFL. He also has the most yards after contact per attempt in the league and is in the top-10 in broken tackles.  Listen to the guys discuss this game through the end of the slate with the Monday Night finale with the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.  Be sure to head to www.profootballnetwork.com later today for Jason's prop plays of the week.

Any Given Friday Podcast: Who is Jameis1of1? And the New York Jets are done
Who is Jameis1of1? And the New York Jets are done! If you click here, you can find the interview from our very own Matthew Cannata. However, today, Corey Ashburn and I dove into our thoughts on who it might be. This is a new saga that, although it's been floating around, has now really hit a stride. Could it be Buccaneers GM Jason Licht? Will Jameis1of1 finally be revealed? We also got into the Halloween spirit and gave teams, fans, players, or coaches that should fear for their job. Our primary focus was on Adam Gase, and although Joe Douglas has given the green light, the NFL is ever-changing, and anything is possible. Taco chasing and ghost seeing Gase and Darnold could be in trouble. We also mentioned that Zac Taylor of the Cincinnati Bengals could be one of the candidates that could survive due to ownership. The Bengals are also candidates for the #TankForTua campaign. We both agree that there is a chance the Miami Dolphins could lose out, but I argued that the Dolphins will 100% win on Sunday against the Jets. Do you agree?

Interview with Jameis1of1, alleged burner account for Bucs GM Jason Licht
Jamies1of1 has been the subject of intense scrutiny over the past 24 hours, with many claiming that this is really the burner account for Tampa Bay Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht. When you look at all of the conspiracy theories out there, a lot seems to add up. But is it true? We ask Jameis1of1 this very question - are you Jason Licht? Is this a burner account? And if you aren't Jason Licht, are you related to anyone or have a relationship with anyone within the Buccaneers organization? Tune in to hear his answers and you can start deciding for yourself. We also ask him about his book on Winston and why he decided to dedicate 400+ pages to the former Florida State University superstar. What drew Jameis1of1 to him and why didn't he pick another quarterback, such as Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions? We talk to Jameis1of1 about PFN's Offensive Share Metric, where Winston is ranked fifth overall when compared to 40 eligible quarterbacks. For those unfamiliar with OSM, the metric uses the NFL’s Next Gen Stats to measure how responsible a player is for their own production.  By extension, the metric is also a way to measure how much a player contributed to their team’s offense overall. For example, a player that had a very productive day statistically, but a low OSM grade, didn’t actually contribute that much offensively because their numbers were primarily the result of their teammates playing well, rather than their own play. For Winston, it's the opposite. While the box score may tell one story, PFN OSM tells another, which is that Winston is responsible for a lot of the offense's success and when things do go wrong, it's not necessarily because of him. We hear Jameis1of1's thoughts on that and so much more. Tune in to hear this interview and decide for yourself whether Jameis1of1 is Jason Licht, or simply a fan who is looking to right Jameis Winston's name on and off the field.

Nosebleed Seats: Week 9 trade deadline & 49ers
This week our Nosebleed Seats duo, Eric, and Zach kick off the show with the lackluster Week 9 trade deadline. The trade deadline came and went with much to be desired, and left fans wondering. We heard all day that the Dallas Cowboys would get Jamal Adams and the New York Jets could deal Le'Veon Bell. Alas, nothing happened. The Dolphins were the lone team to make any moves.   The Week 8 overreactions start with the San Francisco 49ers being labeled the best team in the NFL, and should Mitchell Trubisky be benched by the Chicago Bears? The 49ers remain as one of two undefeated teams in the NFL, joining the New England Patriots. Their defense has been doing a great job, and Nick Bosa has been unstoppable. On the other hand, with the Bears, it seems obvious now that Matt Nagy doesn't trust his former first-round pick in Trubisky. Before the Week 9 trade deadline started, the 49ers already made a move. On the actual trade deadline yesterday, the Bears failed to do so.    There is also a Thursday Night Football preview with the 49ers being favored by a million according to the Nosebleed Seats duo. It's a divisional matchup between the Arizona Cardinals and 49ers. This should be an easy game for the undefeated 49ers.

How will Allen affect the fantasy fortune of the Broncos players? The Carolina Panthers will continue to start Kyle Allen as Cam Newton is still rehabbing from his Lisfranc injury. Can Kyle Allen rebound from his awful Week 8?

Handle Your Business Podcast: NFL officiating problems
On this week's Handle Your Business, I look at the NFL's officiating problems and defend the referee's role in them. I explain how the NFL Competition Committee causes these problems and just how many different priorities the refs have to juggle because of points of emphasis issued by the committee. The controversy mushroomed when Clay Mathews III of the Los Angeles Rams was fined for this tweet criticizing the boss of the referees Al Riveron. Earlier in the season, the referees came under heavy criticism after a dubious illegal hand to the face call aided Green Bay in a win over Detroit. The Competition Committee had the same chairman for over two decades and other members for more than a decade. Among the reforms I propose is a specific time-limited term on the committee and not allowing anyone to serve consecutive terms. Then I take a look at the NFL's improving ratings and the reason why that's happening. A lot of credit goes to gambling and fantasy sports but should also go to some of the NFL's emerging young quarterback stars.

Against the Spread Podcast: Week 8 picks Teaser
Ryan Gosling and Jason Sarney of The Against The Spread podcast are back with their Week 8 Picks. The pair of prognosticators look to close out a strong first half of the season as several plays in Week 8 scream "teaser." Appropriately named, the "teaser" play can look dangerously easy to hit after placing the initial wager. It is usually one mistake that ruins the ticket, but listen to the guys make a convincing case for a few teams to increase those lines to double-digit spreads. Those situations can see the underdog even sneak a win while you could have them getting more than a touchdown worth of points in your back pocket.  While scouring the slate before making their Week 8 picks, Gosling and Sarney are returning to the teams they have been bullish on all season, including the Packers, Panthers, Eagles, and much to one host's betting dismay, the Chargers.

Any Given Friday: Patriots add pieces and could Tom Brady potentially move on?
It's time for NFL Week 8 and another episode of the Any Given Friday podcast. During the podcast, we discuss the latest news with the New England Patriots and the trades of Mahamed Sanu and Michael Bennett. This Patriots offense needed help. It is a Patriots offense that has been slowed down and something we haven't seen in years. With the addition of Sanu, could the Patriots offense with Tom Brady at the helm finally move the football?  During the Patriots talk, we discussed whether we would take Brady or Bill Belichick longterm. The two have their history - with Brady and the Alex Guerro/TB12 controversy in the locker room and with Belichick attempting to push Brady out for Jimmy Garoppolo. If it were up to you and you were the owner of the Patriots, would you choose the greatest head coach of all-time or the greatest quarterback of all-time? Eric and I finished by discussing five quarterbacks in bad situations (-Mitchell Trubisky) that could likely be on a different team next season. We go back and forth but eventually agree on why we would pick a certain quarterback to last out the losing. Could one of these quarterbacks be on the Patriots? And could the Patriots be looking at the quarterback in Los Angeles?

Nosebleed Seats: NFL Trades galore and a look at TNF
This week on The Nosebleed Seats, we cover all the NFL trades that have gone down in the last couple of days. Everyone except for the Detroit Lions has made a move, and most have been substantial. Wolchuk is fired up after a Cowboys victory and at one point, disrobed out of sheer excitement. Eric talks about some disrespectful happenings over the NFL weekend. Which one was most disrespectful? And which NFL Trades did you find the most shocking?  Eric has believed Brissett and Bridgewater are the two best stories of the NFL season thus far. The two quarterbacks have been very good for their respective teams since the start. Both have even shared why they are currently starters. Besides the injury to Drew Brees, both quarterbacks have been thrown into the role. Brissett is going to be the future of the Indianapolis Colts, and although Bridgewater might be as well, he will step-aside once Drew Brees is healthy. We close with a little Redskins and Vikings talk to preview some TNF.

The Fantasy Fixers: Fantasy Football Week 8 Waiver Wire
On this week’s episode of The Fantasy Fixers, we discuss the Week 7 fantasy football news around the league. Tune to find out how The Fantasy Fixers believe fantasy owners should handle the injury to Patrick Mahomes. Another quarterback that fantasy owners need to be concerned about is Atlanta Falcons Matt Ryan. Ryan suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 7, how does this affect the rest of the Falcons offense? What do The Fantasy Fixers think of his replacement, Matt Schaub? Were you one of the fantasy owners who suffered a loss because of the breakout performance from Arizona Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds? The Fantasy Fixers take a look at what fantasy owners should do about Chase Edmonds.  In the Halftime Huddle, a new segment on The Fantasy Fixers podcast, the guys take a look at NFL coaches on the hot seat after seven weeks of the NFL season. How long is it before the Atlanta Falcons move on from Dan Quinn? Which NFC Central coach should be concerned about their coaching status? Which former Super Bowl-winning coach did The Fantasy Fixers believe could a coaching casualty? The Fantasy Fixers finish up the show by analyzing the waiver wire options for Week 8. The guys advise Patrick Mahomes owners, which quarterback fantasy owners should target to help alleviate the pain of losing Mahomes. The Fantasy Fixers think Chase Edmonds should at the top of your waiver wire priorities for fantasy football owners. While another running back who has yet to play a down this season should also be added, find out which AFC South receivers The Fantasy Fixers suggest fantasy owners should add as we head into Week 8.

Handle Your Business podcast: Kelechi Osemele controversy
In this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I take a look at the case of Kelechi Osemele, who is dealing with a severe shoulder injury and a disagreement with the New York Jets over it. Reports are that Osemele was fined and may file a grievance against the Jets. You will also hear about a drug Osemele's been taking to play through the pain called Toradol. Will Kelechi Osemele and the Jets come to a possible agreement, or is a grievance looming? There will also be a discussion of the latest news on Antonio Brown's grievance, A.J. Green's availability and possible trade value, and the bounty the Eagles offered the Jacksonville Jaguars for Jalen Ramsey. With Ramsey getting a win during his first game as a Los Angeles Ram, did he give the Rams the boost that they desperately needed?

Against the Spread Podcast: Bounce back week for Miami and Dallas
With six weeks in the books, the betting group at Pro Football Network is up an impressive 16 units. The Against the Spread duo of Ryan Gosling and Jarson Sarney are coming off of a 4-3 week on the podcast, but they are somewhat cautious of the NFL odds going into NFL Week 7. That said, a yearly 13-8-1 mark for Gosling on his picks, mixed with Sarney’s 19-18 props record, has the pair feeling good heading into NFL Week 7.  After a week that saw another backup nearly save the day with Ryan Fitzpatrick, what can we expect from this new/old look Miami offense in Buffalo? The Cowboys are limping into Week 7 with several notable injuries, including WR Amari Cooper. Can they get their passing game in rhythm against the Philadelphia Eagles? Also in Week 7, can we expect repeat performances from the likes of Deshaun Watson, Sam Darnold, and Kirk Cousins? How will Jalen Ramsey's presence help the Los Angeles Rams as they take on Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons? Will Teddy Bridgewater be able to overcome the injuries of Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook...and perhaps the return of Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky? There's a lot to be excited about in Week 7 with plenty of storylines to go around. Which plays, NFL betting lines, and prop bets does the ATS crew like the most? What should you stay away from? We've analyzed the betting odds at the online sportsbooks and will give our best advice for this weekend. Tune in to the Against the Spread Podcast to find out. And remember, as Ryan mentions at the end of this week's episode, be careful and do not let recency bias affect your bets!

PFN Draft Insiders: NFL trades, CeeDee Lamb, and CFB Week 8
In this week's episode of PFN Draft Insiders, Andy Herman and Tony Pauline talk about the recent flurry of trades in the NFL, recap Week 7 in college football, look ahead to Week 8, and discuss which 2020 NFL Draft prospects to look out for this weekend.   Former Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was traded to the Los Angeles Rams? What does this mean for both teams moving forward, and do we think it was a good trade for both teams? Are the Rams gearing up for another run at the Super Bowl? What other trades might go down before the NFL trading deadline? We dive in and take a look at the big picture.   This past weekend, we saw a quarterback duel between Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. What are our thoughts on these two quarterbacks, and how have they improved coming out of college?   On the flip side, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota and Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston's careers seem to be going in completely the opposite direction after being selected 1 and 2 in the 2015 NFL Draft, respectively. Can either of them bounce back?   Pivoting to college football, we discuss my Risers and Sliders heading into Week 8. One name to keep an eye on? Oklahoma Sooners WR CeeDee Lamb. He had an impressive performance and as I reported in the PFN Live Game Day Blog last weekend, he is expected to enter the NFL Draft in April. What does the remainder of the season hold for him? We discuss.    We also talk Alabama left tackle Alex Leatherwood, Oregon Ducks CB Justin Herbert, and Colorado Buffaloes QB Steven Montez.    Finally, we review last week's Michigan State vs. Wisconsin matchup and look ahead to the biggest games set to be played this Saturday. Don't miss all the inside info and analysis on an all-new Draft Insiders Podcast!

The Fantasy Fixers: Fantasy Football Week 7 Sleepers and Targets
On this week’s episode of The Fantasy Fixers, we discuss the Week 6 fantasy football news around the league. Tune to find out what The Fantasy Fixers thought of the Jalen Ramsey trade to the Los Angeles Rams and the quarterback move from Marcus Mariota to Ryan Tannehill with the Tennessee Titans.  Additionally, we take a look at players at each position and tell you which players they want to start in their Who Do You Love segment. The guys start with a dilemma: Who do you love more in Week 7? Julio Jones vs. Los Angeles Rams or Brandin Cooks vs. Atlanta Falcons? Listen to find out what the guys think.  We dissect a current fantasy football article on our site by David Heilman, who is the Fantasy Football co-director at Pro Football Network. His article provides who he believes fantasy owners should target in trades. We also spotlight several players and discuss their thoughts and trade strategies.  To wrap up the show, The Fantasy Fixers provide their deep fantasy football sleepers for Week 7 and who fantasy managers should look to add and insert in their Week 7 fantasy lineups.

Nosebleed Seats: Jalen Ramsey traded to the Los Angeles Rams
During this week's episode of the Nosebleed Seats, we looked at possible teams that could land Jalen Ramsey. This podcast was recorded before Jalen Ramsey was traded to the Los Angeles Rams. We did have our insight on why the Rams were a possible and eventual landing spot.  We did give our Week 6 observations, including Zach’s disgust with the officiating. His disgust continues into our Cowboys Conversation. The Cowboys lost to the Jets to make it three straight losses. Other than the Patriots, who can you trust in the AFC? Also, Gil Brandt hooked it up with a top and bottom five, so the Nosebleeds needed to give him his proper due. We closed with a tip of the cap to Rob Gronkowski, and a TNF look ahead between the Chiefs and Broncos. With Jalen Ramsey being traded to the Rams, are they now contenders again? Stick around for the show that everyone can afford to listen to, the Nosebleed Seats!

Handle Your Business Podcast: Colin Kaepernick should get an opportunity
During this week's Handle Your Business podcast George looks at Colin Kaepernick who made his case to get back in the NFL. Kaepernick put out a fact sheet challenging some of the assumptions pundits made about why he hasn't been signed since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016. Should Colin Kaepernick get another chance in the NFL? George discusses that and tells the NFL it's time to grow up and give Kaepernick an opportunity. The two biggest reasons for that are the number of mediocre quarterbacks playing in the league, and it will finally put the controversy that surrounded Kaepernick to rest for good. There's also a lot of exciting news starting with Jalen Ramsey meeting with Jacksonville owner Shahid Khan this week for a heart-to-heart talk. Ramsey was inactive with a back injury today, but it figures the one way to make Ramsey's trade demand go away is a new contract, and George looks at what the parameters of a deal might look like and the challenge it poses for Jaguars. Plus talk about Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Reed.

Any Given Friday: NFL Tank Bowl V.1 and a look into a better NFL future
This week on the Any Given Friday podcast, we are joined by PFN writer Zach Knerr. Alongside my regular co-hosts Corey Ashburn and Eric Wiedeke, we discuss the first game of the Tank Bowl season. NFL Tank Bowl V.1 will feature the Miami Dolphins vs. the Washington Redskins, and we have split opinions. While half of us believe the Dolphins will edge out a win, the other half believe that the Redskins are too talented to lose. Who do you think will win the first NFL Tank Bowl? We also discuss our game of the week from last week. Who has the better next four games, the Dallas Cowboys or the Green Bay Packers? We finish by discussing the winless teams in the NFL and who has the better future. Things get interesting during the podcast between the four Dolphins fans. Who has the better future, Jets, Dolphins, Bengals, or Redskins?

In this week's episode of PFN Draft Insiders, Andy Herman and Tony Pauline discuss two quarterbacks who struggled this past weekend. This includes Utah State's Jordan Love vs. the LSU Tigers and Iowa's Nate Stanley vs. the Michigan Wolverines. Tune in to hear our thoughts regarding these two quarterbacks and what this means for their draft stock. We also discuss the play of some young NFL receivers and the firing of Washington Redskins (now former head coach) Jay Gruden.  On the college football side, we discuss my Risers and Sliders heading into Week 7. One name to keep an eye on? Florida EDGE rusher Jonathan Greenard. To wrap up the show, we review some of my matchups to watch in College Football Week 7.

Against the Spread Podcast: Week 6 picks led by the Bolts
With five weeks in the books, the betting group at www.profootballnetwork.com can claim a record of 88-63-3. The Against the Spread duo of Gosling and Sarney are coming off of a 4-1 picks week and a 4-1 prop performance, so their Week 6 picks have some momentum to them.  A yearly 9-4-1 mark for Gosling on his picks, mixed with Sarney's 18-14 props record, has the pair feeling like Aces heading into Week 6.  The good news was that Melvin Gordon returned for the Chargers last week against the Denver Broncos. The bad news was that he didn't help their case, and a winless team got their first victory at his team's expense.  With a soft matchup on Monday Night Football against the downward spiraling Pittsburgh Steelers, expect Gordon, Phillip Rivers, and anyone with a lightning bolt on their helmet to succeed on the national broadcasted contest.  This may be the safest of all of the Week 6 picks.

Nosebleed Seats Podcast: Cowboys conversation and a farewell to Jay Gruden
In today's episode of the Nosebleed Seats, the fellas give their week five NFL observations. Wolchuk notes the Cleveland Browns as his biggest takeaway from the week, and he has some shots to fire at Baker Mayfield. Chiofalo thinks the Patriots have a lot of work to do at certain spots of the roster even though they are undefeated.    Cowboys Conversation is another sad sulking Wolchuk defending his silver and blue honor after the loss to the Packers. The good news is, they get Adam Gase in week 6. Whats the Cowboys biggest issue right now, and would Wolchuk be down for another Amari Cooper type trade like last year?   We send a farewell to Jay Gruden the only way we can while his brother Jon steps up for us in a big, big way.

On this week’s episode of The Fantasy Fixers, we discuss the Week 5 fantasy football news around the league. Tune in to find out how the firing of head coach Jay Gruden will affect the Washington Redskins. The guys also take at the latest injury news and latest trade buzz surrounding Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green.  Plus, we take a look at players at each position and tell you which players they want to start in their Who Do You Love segment.  In the pod, we also discuss the Week 5 fantasy football risers and the fallers at each position. There are definitely a few surprises that fantasy owners need to hear.  To wrap up the show, we look at one of the most important aspects of fantasy football, the waiver wire. Who are the hot pickups for Week 6? Which quarterback did both guys believe that fantasy owners should add immediately? What backup running back did the Fantasy Fixers advise to pick up as a speculative add? How do the Fantasy Fixers think fantasy owners should fix the thinnest position in fantasy football?

Handle Your Business Podcast: Questions surround the Jay Gruden firing
On this week's episode of Handle Your Business, I will take a look at the leaked video of Jay Gruden, the embattled head coach of the Washington Redskins, and ask why is this surfacing now. I will remind you of the case of Scot McLoughan, the former general manager of the Redskins, who was fired for showing up to work drunk. I will tell you the story of how that story sprung up from nowhere and how the Redskins were able to fire McLoughan without having to pay him the balance of his deal. Finally, I will tell you what this story says about the Redskins organization and the state that it's in. Along with that, you will hear about a big deal the NFL made with the referees. There will not be a repeat of the infamous "Fail Mary" in Seattle that replacement referees botched all those years ago. I will also report on the rumors swirling around Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs. You will find out what the cap implications are for a trade if it were to happen this month.

Any Given Friday: Todd Gurley and NFL first quarter in review
This week on the Any Given Friday podcast, we cover the weird Todd Gurley situation, their surprise teams from the first quarter of the season, and their game of the week. Tune in down below to listen. With Todd Gurley, we discuss the strange injury history he's had. Running backs in the NFL have had knee issues in the past, but Gurley has arthritis in his knee. This is something that is not common amongst younger players and is something to watch out for with Gurley and his team. Could the Los Angeles Rams be hiding the severity of Gurley's injury?  The NFL has been through a crazy four weeks, and our two surprise teams have been the San Francisco 49ers and the Detroit Lions. Both sides will need to keep up their pace if they want to be taken as legit contenders. Our two teams of disappointment have been the Los Angeles Chargers and Minnesota Vikings. Listen in to see who we dislike the most.  We finish with our game of the week and look to improve from our horrible game of the week last Sunday.

NFL Picks: Eagles soar and the Jets stay grounded | Against the spread
Eagles will dominate the Jets Put, these are two teams heading in vastly different directions. The Eagles are hoping to win this soft matchup, as well as catch a potential break-in Dallas if Green Bay can swipe a victory from the Cowboys.  Knowing that the Eagles can end the day with a share of first place in the NFC with a Packers win in Dallas, expect Philly to come out swinging like a heavyweight fighter against the hapless Jets.  With Sam Darnold still at risk with his health and dealing with mononucleosis, Luke Falk may get the call on the road, in a tough environment, albeit against a susceptible secondary. Slight defensive limitations aside, the 13.5 spread does not scare the Against the Spread hosts. This play of the Eagles is as safe as can be with the Jets not showing much life thus far this season. The Eagles are getting healthier, and this could be a game that is over before halftime. Carson Wentz is getting his targets back to full strength, and the running attacks are multi-faceted with Justin Howard, Miles Sanders, and veteran Darren Sproles.  The Birds fly high at home, and the Jets stay grounded on I-95.   The Pack to attack Big D? Aaron Rodgers and his Green Bay Packers are Devante Adams-less heading into a significant NFC clash in Dallas this Sunday. 3.5 points favor the Cowboys, and while this could be a shootout game, look for it to go down to the wire in what could even be a walk-off win.  When looking at the NFL picks for Week 5, the "over" can certainly be enticing with the offensive talent on the field.  Look for Rodgers to utilize his other targets, and perhaps lean on tight end Jimmy Graham more with Adams dealing with turf toe. Aaron Jones will certainly be relied upon as well with a limited receiving corps.  On the Dallas side of things, look for Ezekiel Elliot to take advantage of a lackluster Packers run defense, which should soften the blow of the injured Tyron Smith out indefinitely. Dak Prescott, meanwhile, looks to rebound from a poor offensive performance last week in New Orleans.  New to the show?

Plus a look at Jordan Love and his updated draft status heading into a big matchup with LSU. Could Love be the top quarterback drafted in 2020? According to some in the NFL scouting community, there's a growing train of thought that it may very well happen. Finally, Tony and Andy look forward to the biggest matchups to keep an eye on this week in college football. Don't miss it!

Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns impress, and Cowboys fall | Nosebleed Seats
Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns impress If not for a game-winning drive from Patrick Mahomes, the Detroit Lions would still be undefeated and the talk of the town. Despite the loss against the Kansas City Chiefs and the tie to the Arizona Cardinals, the Lions could be getting more talk. They have been sneaky good, and that includes the close and uncomfortable wins against the Los Angeles Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles. Those wins were not the best, but the Lions have been better. They played a great game against the Chiefs, but ultimately the Chiefs took it home.  Jarvis Landry came alive for the Cleveland Browns in a win against the Baltimore Ravens. Somehow the Browns are first in their division, and the Ravens look like an afterthought. This was a game where Jarvis had 150-yards on just eight catches, and he wasn't even the main topic. Nick Chubb was the star in the win for the Browns and showed just how dangerous the Browns rushing game could be. This game for Chubb is only one of the dangerous rushing attacks the Browns have. They still have Kareem Hunt when he comes off suspension.  Dallas Cowboys lose on primetime The Dallas Cowboys were not at their best on Sunday night. They lost to the New Orleans Saints in a game in which the Saints kicked four field goals. Dak Prescott threw 223-yards and a pick on 22/33 attempts and looked like Dak again. Even Ezekiel Elliott was off and had 19 rushing attempts for 35-yards and a 1.9-yard average. It was an overall bad performance from the Cowboys, and they were brought back down to earth. They will need to figure out what happened quickly as they play the Green Bay Packers this Sunday. This does get easy afterward as they face the Jets, Giants, and Vikings in the four weeks following.  Questions from the podcast team? Who impressed you more, the Detroit Lions or the Cleveland Browns? Can the Dallas Cowboys bounce back this weekend against the Green Bay Packers? New to the show?

Fantasy football Week 4 takeaways and wavier wire advice | The Fantasy Fixers
Pick Up City Looking for a quarterback to help sting the pain of drafting Kirk Cousins? This week's waiver wire has some options for fantasy owners. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston had a huge Week 4 with 385 passing yards and four touchdowns. The Fantasy Fixers is one of the top options for fantasy owners, as well as Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew, led the Jaguars to a comeback victory over the Denver Broncos in Week 4 and Minshew Mania should be added to your roster.  Ronald Jones is finally living up to his hype with 82 scrimmage yards and a touchdown. The Fantasy Fixers believe Jones has taken over the featured back role over Peyton Barber. The Fantasy Fixers like what they saw with the Philadelphia Eagles Jordan Howard. His stock is rising and looks to have upside in that Eagles offense and on your fantasy lineups.  If you are looking to add players, fantasy football owners have to drop a player off their roster. The Fantasy Fixers suggest dropping quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is having a horrible season. The Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson has the look of a roster casualty with an injury keeping him out for a multi-game absence. All fantasy owners are aware of the great news on the return of Melvin Gordon, which will also deem Jackson expendable on fantasy rosters. Also, find out which Chicago Bears wide receiver has been a disappointment and can be dropped? Who do you love? The Fantasy Fixers take a look at each position and ask the question, who do you love in Week 5? Should you start Andy Dalton against the Arizona Cardinals or Kyle Murray against the Cincinnati Bengals? Tyler Boyd vs. Arizona Cardinals or Sterling Shepard vs. Minnesota Vikings? Darren Waller vs. Chicago Bears or Greg Olsen vs. Jacksonville Jaguars?  Find out who the Fantasy Fixers selected in each of those player matchups. Question from the Podcast team How will the return of Melvin Gordon affect the fantasy value of Austin Ekeler? Who are the top waiver-wire targets for Week 5? Which players are the biggest surprises and busts after four games? Who is the Fantasy MVP at the quarter mark of the 2019 season? New to the show?

Domestic violence in the NFL with its coaches | Handle your business
USA Today reveals that four assistant coaches have been involved with domestic violence An article in USA Today revealed that four assistant coaches currently with NFL teams have incidents with domestic violence in their past. The author of the piece, Rachel Axon (@RachelAxon on Twitter), joins George to discuss the work she and a team of journalists did to find this out. Axon and her team looked into the 700 coaches listed on NFL websites to see if any of them had a record with these issues. Also broached was the personal conduct policy in the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement and why it isn't applied to management and coaches as it is to players. Rachel and George also talk about whether the NFL needs to issues new rules when it comes to NFL teams and there hiring practices for management and coaches.  Super Bowl halftime act announced and other news It looks as if the NFL's deal with Jay-Z and Roc Nation is already paying dividends as Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will headline this year's Super Bowl halftime show in Miami. The two stars make history as the first Latina women to perform at the halftime show. This could have been the chance for the NFL to grab Mr. 305 himself Pitbull, but Lopez and Shakira will work just as well. After meeting opposition from NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith on an 18-game season, the NFL dropped the idea but wants a 17-game regular season with fewer preseason games. The NFL would lose the fourth preseason game, which would essentially allow the chance for them to get their extra regular season game.  Questions for the podcast team Should the NFL institute a personal conduct policy for management and coaches? Are you excited to see Jennifer Lopez and Shakira in the Super Bowl halftime show? Do you want to see a 17-game regular season? New to the show?

Young quarterbacks go 50/50 and Melvin Gordon returns | Any given Friday
Young quarterbacks - 50/50 start  Last week, Eric and Kai'Chien gave their young quarterbacks to look for in Week 3. They covered Josh Rosen, Kyle Allen, Mason Rudolph, and Teddy Bridgewater. This week they gave us their grades for each quarterback.  Josh Rosen didn't get the help during the Sunday 1:00 pm EST matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. Rosen and his Miami Dolphins team were in a perfect position and left 14 points on the field before the end of the first half. From a 6-10 scoreline to a 31-6 finish. It wasn't game-changing by any means from Rosen, but there was a little bit of promise from the young quarterback. The Dolphins will look for competition no matter what, and Rosen will have to prove he's the guy. Kyle Allen tore it up and could take over for good in Carolina if Cam Newton never gets back to his MVP play. Unfortunately, Mason Rudolph and Teddy Bridgewater were not that great. They both had subpar performances, and Bridgewater just managed the game for the New Orleans Saints. Rudolph failed to do this despite his team forcing 5 turnovers against the 3-0 San Fransisco 49ers.  Melvin Gordon - Holdout OVER One of the forgotten but not forgotten stories of the year has been the Melvin Gordon holdout. Gordon has held out for a new contract from the Los Angeles Chargers, but nothing has moved towards a new deal. Initially, the thought was that Gordon would come back when he needed to towards the tail-end of the season. Alas, Gordon is back and is certainly feeling the pressure as the Chargers rushing game has still looked good without him.  The choice to comeback is a good one for Gordon because if the Chargers continued to strive on the ground without him, a deal would not be guaranteed. The Chargers have seen what a Hall of Fame running back is. They know what the worth is and IF they pay Gordon, he will need to break out this season.  Questions From The Podcast Team Which young quarterback did you like the most this past weekend? Will Melvin Gordon get his money from the Los Angeles Chargers? Which young quarterback is the future for their respective team? New to the show?

PFN Draft Insiders: NFL rookie imapct, risers and sliders from NCAA Week 4, and a look at Week 5
This week on the PFN Draft Insiders Podcast with Tony Pauline, we talk a mix of both NFL and NCAA College Football. We kick things off with a discussion around several NFL rookies - Daniel Jones, Kyle Allen, Josh Jacobs, and Devin Bush. We also touch on two second-year players - Jaire Alexander and Baker Mayfield - who are having contrasting seasons. While Alexander is playing at a high level right now, Mayfield is the complete opposite and has struggled out of the gate. Looking back on Week 4 of the college football slate, we discuss several risers and sliders. Among the risers are C Tyler Biadasz from Wisconsin, LB Akeem Davis-Gaither from Appalachian State, and TE Jake Breeland from Oregon. The biggest slider? TE Jared Pinkney from Vanderbilt.

Against the Spread: Eagles are underdogs and the Chargers are 17 point favorites
Packers (-4.5) vs. Eagles The Philadelphia Eagles are walking into this week's matchup against the Green Bay Packers as a (-4.5) underdog. They are suffering from multiple injuries to their offense, and the Packers are looking to get on a roll this week. The Packers come into this week 3-0, and the offense is starting to find a groove. Their defense is excellent as well, and with the Eagles injuries, a win seems far stretched.  Even with the offense finding a small groove last week with Aaron Jones, they still aren't trustworthy. Aaron Rodgers doesn't look the same, although he didn't play in the preseason. This seems to be affecting all teams on the injury front and even some teams with their offense. The Eagles have gotten the injury side of things, while the Packers got off to the slow start on offense.  For the Eagles, it will take a lot to get this win. A win against the Packers could help turn their season around even in Week 4. The injuries and inconsistency is a problem, but winning solves everything. This Eagles team has the potential to be good, and when they get healthy, they could be fun to watch.  Chargers (-17) at Dolphins This won't be too time consuming. Unless you are a fan of the Miami Dolphins or Los Angeles Chargers, there is no reason to watch this game. Yes, Josh Rosen looked at the very least promising against the Dallas Cowboys. However, to quote The Beatles, he could get by with a little help from his friends. The Dolphins have been terrible to start this season and regardless if you think they are tanking or not, Ryan says that "...no spread is too big for this team." Look towards the Eagles vs. Packers matchup for an entertaining show. Questions From The Podcast Team Are the Eagles going to get going against the Packers? Could the Miami Dolphins shock the world with a win this Sunday? New to the show?

Nosebleed Seats Podcast: Undefeated teams that could go down during Week 4
Undefeated Teams - The dream start  Our hosts took a look at some of the top articles on PFN each week. During this weeks episode, they zero in on the undefeated teams and try to figure out which 3-0 team will remain undefeated the longest.  The New England Patriots have played one of the weaker schedules in the NFL and have started undefeated. The beat down on the Steelers, Dolphins, and Jets. It was a playground for the offensive and defensive side of the football. They play the 3-0 Buffalo Bills on Sunday, but the Bills barely beat the Jets in Week 1 and will need to hold up against the Patriots to be taken seriously. Then they seemingly have three easy games against the Redskins, Giants, and Jets again before meeting the Browns.  Stats of the week - The Chiofalo special The preseason had many people thinking that the best divisions in football would be the NFC South or the AFC North. However, after the Drew Brees and Big Ben injuries, this has not been the case. The best division has been the NFC North with the Packers and Lions starting undefeated and Minnesota and Chicago with only one loss each. This division is the most competitive in football right now, and the Lions could be unbeaten if not for the tie against the Cardinals and rookie Kyler Murray. The NFC North makes each game exciting, and the Lions will face the Chiefs this weekend. They will be competing directly with Mahomes mania. Should be a fun matchup to watch at a 1:00 pm EST starting time.  Questions from the podcast team? Which team will stay undefeated this weekend? Are the Bills a good team? What division in football is the best in your eyes? New to the show?

Fantasy Fixers: Week 3 fantasy football takeaways and waiver wire advice
Fill-in quarterbacks rule in Week 3 In Week 3, fantasy owners saw the emergence of fill-in quarterbacks. The Week three takeaways start with the quarterback that made the most significant buzz, in New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. All Daniel Jones did in his first NFL start is to lead the Giants in a comeback victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jones threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two more scores.  The Carolina Panthers were forced to turn to Kyle Allen after Cam Newton reaggravated a foot sprain that he initially suffered in the preseason. Kyle Allen stepped up and threw for four touchdowns in the Panthers 38-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.  Unfortunately, not all of the replacement quarterbacks fair well in Week 3. The Fantasy Fixers explain what they saw with Mason Rudolph taking over for Ben Roethlisberger but lose to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Additionally, Luke Falk and the New York Jets were embarrassed by the New England Patriots.  The Week 3 Winners and Losers The Fantasy Fixers analyze Week 3 and explain why quarterbacks Daniel Jones and Kyle Allen are winners along with another surprising quarterback. Find out which running backs are winners as the Fantasy Fixers take a look at two running backs that fantasy owners should consider winners in Week 3.  There is a running back that suffers as a loser in Week 3 due to his teammates' success. A rookie tight end is a loser in Week 3 after consecutive poor outings after a breakout performance in his debut.  Another big loser in Week 3 is the Cleveland Browns offense. The Browns were missing eight players and went toe-to-toe with the NFC Champions Los Angeles Rams in the Sunday Night Matchup. However, they suffered a loss due to horrendous play-calling at the end of the game, and Baker Mayfield is not playing to the level we witnessed last season.  Pick Up City The New York Giants are celebrated their big win on Sunday. However, they also received terrible news that their franchise running back Saquon Barkley suffered a high-ankle sprain and will be out four-to-eight weeks. Barkley owners will need to look to the waiver wire to help their fantasy rosters.  The most logical replacement for Barkley on fantasy rosters is his replacement, Wayne Gallman. The Fantasy Fixers believe that initially, Gallman will get the touches and is an excellent addition based on volume alone. The San Francisco 49ers continue to produce productive fantasy running backs, which includes Jeff Wilson. Wilson has consecutive weeks of scoring two touchdowns and is someone fantasy owners should look to pick up this week. New to the show?

Handle Your Business: Jalen Ramsey possible trade destinations and Minkah Fitzpatrick dealt
Last week, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey demanded a trade after expressing frustration with the coaching staff and management. Rumors abounded that he would be traded after Sunday's games were played, as the AFC South continues to be the most dramatic division in the NFL this season. So, where is Jalen Ramsey going? George is joined by Pro Football Network's AFC South writer Rob Paul to discuss where Ramsey could land. There are a few surprise teams in the reckoning as well as some of the usual contenders for a championship. Rob and George discuss two teams that are viewed as contenders that absolutely should take the plunge and make a deal for Ramsey. Antonio Brown cut, Minkah Fitzpatrick dealt With new allegations leveled against Antonio Brown, the New England Patriots released him after one game. The cap implications on the Patriots as well as Brown's future prospects are discussed. Also in the AFC, the Pittsburgh Steelers surrendered a first-round pick to the Miami Dolphins to acquire defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick. There's been some discussion that the price was too steep given the potential need at quarterback for Pittsburgh. George points to Fitzpatrick's contract as one of the reasons why it's such a good deal for the Steelers.

Any given Friday: Eli Manning benched and a QB carousel for the ages
Eli Manning - HOF Since being benched for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, the NFL media has argued over the career of Eli Manning. While most teammates decided that their former quarterback is a Hall of Fame player, some media members have disagreed. Manning went 116-116 in his career (during the regular season) as the New York Giants starting quarterback. His tenure began with a 1-6 record and for now, has finished with an 0-2 start. He is a two time Super Bowl champion and won the Super Bowl MVP in both appearances. He's thrown a lot of interceptions and a lot of touchdowns, he has a .500 record, but co-host Kai'Chien believes that Manning is a HOF quarterback.  Quarterback carousel Eli Manning was benched for Daniel Jones. Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched for Josh Rosen. Big Ben is hurt, Drew Brees is damaged, and Cam Newton is hurt. Five teams will start with new quarterbacks this week. Within the five teams, there is a rookie, three second-year quarterbacks, and a veteran in Teddy Bridgewater. The only debatable starter for the future at this point is Bridgewater, and he will get to prove his worth and why the New Orleans Saints signed him to a new deal. For Rosen and Rudolf, it is to prove that they are the future for their respective teams. Jones is a rookie and will get some time, and Kyle Allen is there for the time being. It will be an exciting and probably sloppy week of football in during Week 3.  Questions From The Podcast Team Will Eli Manning retire at the end of this season? Could the Dolphins and Steelers have their future at QB? New to the show?

Against the Spread: Arizona Cardinals seek their first win in Week 3 and betting odds
Injuries and massive lines highlight Week 3 Betting action Following yet another successful week of betting predictions and prognostication, Jason Sarney and Ryan Gosling come off of an overall 8-2 week with gameplays and player props! From a pure betting-on-game action, the Pro Football Network Gambling Crew went a whopping 20-8-1 during Week 2! Last week was certainly kind to the Against the Spread hosts in their better endeavors, yet the same was not to be said for several quarterbacks across the league. Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees suffered significant injuries, as Pittsburgh lost their leader for the season, and New Orleans theirs for about a month and a half, approximately. Kyler Murray looks for first career victory It is Week 3, and Kyler Murray seeks his first career win and the potential of the strange-looking 1-1-1 record. Murray has looked fantastic in two games and has shown brilliance in his passing ability thus far.  On the flip side, another former 1st overall pick has shown potential regression in his abilities. Health is also a significant concern for Cam Newton, which is why the actual line on this game is moving, and in some cases, only off.  FanDuel had this game Wednesday evening at -2.5, which seems very hittable with Newton's injury, and the momentum Murray has built up. The betting action on this game will undoubtedly be on the home team with a hurting Panthers signal-caller and Christian McCaffery coming off of a stinker of a performance against Tampa Bay last Thursday night.  Chiefs versus Ravens and Ryan versus Jason  There is the game, and then the game within the game. Usually, Ryan and Jason share their game-by-game thoughts, but a -6.5 Kansas City line has one co-host worried.  While both love an over betting line to hit, and the Chiefs to win, Gosling has more faith that the Patrick Mahomes-led Chiefs beat Lamar Jackson and the Ravens by more than a touchdown. Sarney thinks Jackson could lead this game to a fourth-quarter story-book ending, however coming up a tad short.  Will those 6-plus points hurt Gosling and the Chiefs in a betting sense or will Sarney and the Ravens cover ever so slightly and profit on Sunday?

Nosebleed Seats: Multiple NFL trades and power rankings reviews
NFL Trades Galore Multiple NFL trades and new storylines for the football world. On today's episode of the Nosebleed Seats, Eric and Zach kick off the show by discussing the top NFL storylines from around the league. Minkah Fitzpatrick was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Eric's Dolphins are continuing the "Tank for Tua" momentum by stocking up on more picks. Eric is pleased with the deal since Pittsburgh seems destined for a top 10 pick after the Big Ben injury, but he knows they better nail the 2020 Draft. If the Dolphins GM Chris Grier fails to get it right, things will get ugly in Miami. Especially after trading away many of their best young cornerstones over the last few weeks. Eric and Zach also discuss whether or not Zach's Dallas Cowboys should make a move for Jalen Ramsey or Jamal Adams. Both players have requested a trade this week. The New York Jets, of course, making Adams upset. Meanwhile, the coaching staff arguing with Jalen Ramsey in a back and forth is not suitable for the Jaguars.  Power rankings and Dallas Cowboys The fellas wrapped up the show with NFL power rankings and some of the best NFL stats from Week 2. Eric and Zach each give their top five teams in the league after two weeks of play. Everybody knows the Patriots and Chiefs are two of the top teams, but Eric and Zach disagree about some others. Of course, Zach is salivating over his 2-0 Cowboys, and the newly found offensive greatness thanks to the young baby faced savior, Kellen Moore. Good news is, Zach isn't delusional to the point of having America's Team atop his power rankings, but my oh my they're getting close. Questions from the podcast team? What 2-0 team can keep it going this weekend? Will the 2019-2020 Dolphins go down as the worst team ever? With all of the NFL injuries that have piled up, what will the ripple effect be around the league? Is the AFC North and NFC South divisions totally up for grabs now? It certainly feels that way.

Fantasy Fixers: Fantasy Aftermath of the Injured Quarterbacks
What is the fantasy impact of two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks being injured? Ouch! That hurts! Fantasy football owners are feeling the aftermath of the barrage of impactful injuries in Week 2.  The significance of the season-ending elbow injury to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have multiple fantasy implications.  We will get to see 2018 third-round pick Mason Rudolph take over the Steelers offense. In his NFL debut, Rudolph completed 12-of-19 passes for 112 yards, two touchdowns to tight end Vance McDonald, and one interception for a 92.5 passer rating.  The Fantasy Fixers examines how this will affect the Steelers offensive playmakers, running back James Connor, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, and tight end Vance McDonald. The Fantasy Fixers believe that James Connor will benefit as long as he is healthy to get back on the field. If not, they believe Jaylan Samuels is a priority add. The guys believe that JuJu falls into the WR2 range with less boom potential. They think that James Washington will be the main target for Rudolph since they played together at Oklahoma State. Look for tight end Vance McDonald to play an essential role as evidenced by McDonald catching both touchdowns passes from Rudolph in relief of Roethlisberger. Another impactful injury was New Orleans Saints future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Drew Brees suffering a ligament injury to his thumb on his throwing hand. His thumb requires surgery and will be out a minimum of six weeks.  Teddy Bridgewater stepped in for Brees and struggled in relief against the Los Angeles Rams Sunday. The offense was stagnant, and the Fantasy Fixers believes that the attack will struggle immensely with Bridgewater behind center. The Fantasy Fixers project that the only players to hold on to are running back Alvin Kamara and wide receiver Michael Thomas. They also bring up the fact that maybe Taysom Hill might be a better option for the Saints offense.  The Week 2 Winners and Losers The Fantasy Fixers review Week 2 and explain why quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Gardner Minshew are winners. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders returned this season after suffering a torn Achilles and helped the Denver Broncos beat the Chicago Bears.  Every team facing the Miami Dolphins and the Cincinnati Bengals are weekly winners. The Fantasy Fixers suggest playing every offensive player and opposing defenses against these two teams.  The Week 2 losers include the distinct selections of Steelers and Saints offensive players except for their playmaking standouts. Duke Johnson, who lost touches to Carlos Hyde on Sunday is another Week 2 loser. Two Gordons, Josh, and Melvin are also Week 2 losers.  Questions from the podcast team? How does the season-ending injury of Ben Roethlisberger affect the Steelers offensive options? Who starts in New Orleans with Drew Brees out at least six weeks? Teddy Bridgewater? Taysom Hill? Who were the fantasy winners and losers in Week 2? New to the show?

Handle your business: Jared Goff gets a new contract and expanding the playoffs
Jared Goff's big deal Two weeks back Jared Goff signed a massive 4-year, $134 million extensions. That puts Goff into the top 5 in average annual salary for quarterbacks. George examines his record under Sean McVay, looks at what happens when Goff carries more of the responsibility in the offense and decides on whether Goff is worth the cash. Breaking News George starts the show by talking about the breaking news on New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and on Miami Dolphins cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick. Payton has signed a long extension that will not only end any talk of him coaching the Dallas Cowboys, but it will also set him up to stay with New Orleans for nearly two decades, a rare achievement in the NFL. Fitzpatrick requested a trade and reporting from Neal Driscoll of ProFootballNetwork.com indicates the Dolphins are receiving substantial offers for him. George talks about what he would take if he were sitting in the Miami front office. Expanding the NFL playoffs The NFL is talking about adding two teams to the playoffs to make 7 in each conference, and 14 units total for the next collective bargaining agreement. The NFL muted this proposal at the last CBA negotiations. George looks at the argument from both ends. The playoffs last expanded in 1990 to 12 teams. So George looks at who would've got in from 1990 until now and gives you the numbers on the sort of teams that would've made it and how many of them were good teams. Then George talks about it from the perspective of the groups that were seeded second and would go from getting the first week off to play at home. George tells you how many 13-win (and even 14-win) teams would not have got the week off as well as pointing out how much this policy could've changed the recent history of the NFL. Questions for the podcast team What should the Dolphins ask for in a trade for Minkah Fitzpatrick? Is Jared Goff worth the money? Do you want to see the NFL playoffs expanded New to the show?

Any given Friday: Kyler Murray debut, Dolphins, and an interview with Greg Likens
Kyler Murray - Crazy debut Kyler Murray had an appearance with the Arizona Cardinals that went from a gigantic low to a massive high. It was a better debut than former Cardinal Josh Rosen, and the Miami Dolphins had. Through three quarters into his NFL debut, the Cardinals were losing to the Detroit Lions, and the offense was looking bad. Then out of nowhere, the Cardinals sparked a fourth-quarter comeback. Offensively Murry was lights out in the fourth quarter and led them to an overtime appearance. Eventually, they tied with the Lions which is weird for a Week 1 matchup.  In Week 2 the Cardinals will go up against the Baltimore Ravens who put the smackdown on the Miami Dolphins. Both defenses will be tested this week, and it will be up to Murray to answer back. It doesn't seem likely that he can put a performance that Lamar Jackson did last week, however, if he can pull together a full four quarters than the Ravens could be in trouble.  Interview with 790 and WQAM host Greg Likens - Miami Dolphins Former host of the Miami Dolphins "Finsiders" radio and TV telecast Greg Likens joined Kai'Chien to talk about the Dolphins and their rocky 2019 start. The Ravens incredibly beat the Dolphins in Week 1. With the beating and reports coming out that some Dolphins players could want out, the Dolphins could be in a sticky situation.  The tank seemed to be confirmed during that Ravens loss, and it wasn't a pretty one. Starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and even his backup QB, Josh Rosen both threw interceptions during the game, and they eventually lost 59-10. For the Dolphins, the devastating situation will be the future of Rosen. Some think that the Dolphins know that Rosen isn't the guy, but there is also the next three-week gauntlet for the team. They lost by 49 points and will now face the New England Patriots at home, going to meet the Dallas Cowboys next week, and finish the gauntlet at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. This should be an 0-4 start and Dolphins fans could see Rosen during Week 6. Questions From The Podcast Team Can Lamar Jackson pull this off every week? Can Kyler Murray put together a full four-quarter of great play? When will Miami Dolphins fans see Josh Rosen start? New to the show?

Against the Spread: Dallas Cowboys continue to grow into a potential winner
How 'Bout Them, Cowboys? The Dallas Cowboys looked like a superior team in Week 1 against the New York Giants in arguably one of the best overall performances by a group. The Cowboys not only won, but they also covered the spread by a mile and will do so again Week 2 in Washington.  Last week, Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore had the offense finding mismatches, and Dak Prescott looked like a man ready for his pay-day. He tossed a career-high four touchdown passes, and Ezekiel Elliot proved his worth with a modest 53 yards and a score in limited work. The good times continue on the road against another division rival.  The Redskins showed promise early but ended up falling to the Philadelphia Eagles, and this game won't be any more forgiving against the Cowboys.  Look for the Dallas Cowboys to win and cover the -4.5 spread Week 2. The only worry on the Redskins side could be ageless veteran running back Adrian Peterson making his 2019 season debut.  The Bolts Will Strike in The Motor City The Los Angeles Chargers held their faux home-field advantage against the Indianapolis Colts last week 30-26 and didn't need Melvin Gordon to do so.  Austin Ekeler scored a trio of touchdowns to help Philip Rivers and company start the year off on the right note.  The Detroit Lions, however, started 2019 off on an odd note as they fought to a tie with the Arizona Cardinals at 27-27.  Look for Rivers, Ekeler, Keenan Allen and the Chargers to get to 2-0 and send the Lions to a winless 0-1-1 in Week 2.  AFC West Shootout by the Bay The Kansas City Chiefs are a well-oiled machine on offense, and regardless of an injured Tyreek Hill, there will be no shortage of points Sunday in Oakland. Patrick Mahomes will find Sammy Watkins and rookie Mecole Hardman, along with Travis Kelce plenty to help make this a high-scoring affair.  The Oakland Raiders looked solid with Derek Carr and a young and growing offense Week 1 against the Denver Broncos so that the points could come on the losing side as well. Expect the Chiefs to win this one, and also expect a lite up the scoreboard in this Week 2 AFC West matchup.  Questions From The Podcast Team •    Will the Rams fall victim to a Super Bowl hangover?•    Is there a Week 1 upset special?•    Who are the players to target for daily fantasy and prop plays?

Washington Redskins - Adrian Peterson inactive Then it's the latest controversy with the Washington Redskins. For the first time in his career, Adrian Peterson was inactive despite being injury-free. Peterson was resigned by the Redskins after running for over 1,000 yards last year and was named team offensive MVP. Jay Gruden was reportedly opposed to bringing Peterson back but may turn to him after Derrius Guice's injury Monday night madness A quick recap of the Monday night results follows beginning with the wild finish in New Orleans between the Saints and the Houston Texans. Why did Houston rush only three pass rushers against Drew Brees late as he was driving New Orleans for a winning field goal? Jon Gruden may have the last laugh with the Raiders looking improved after defeating the Denver Broncos. Jon Elway's latest attempt to find a quarterback, Joe Flacco, had a difficult evening in front of a raucous crowd in Oakland. Fantasy surprises and possible waiver wire pickups. George and Travis delve deeper into Travis' expertise by talking some fantasy football to help you out after a crazy week 1. Andy Dalton had a monster game in taking the Cincinnati Bengals to a near-upset of the Seattle Seahawks, and the Red Rifle might be worth a shot if you need help at quarterback. If not Dalton, then possibly rookie Gardner Minshew who produced one of the most accurate debuts for a rookie quarterback in NFL history. As for running back, Malcolm Brown made a big impression carrying the load for the Los Angeles Rams in the first half before Todd Gurley took over after halftime. Questions from the podcast team Should the NFL go to two Monday night games each week? Who was your fantasy surprise of the week? New to the show?

Fantasy Fixers: Thrilling Week 1 and Fantasy Football View into Week 2
The Fantasy Football Impact of the significant injuries in Week 1 Fantasy Football owners witnessed a frantic Week 1 with injuries to substantial fantasy players. The impact of those injuries will result in fantasy owners scrambling for updates on their potential return. How does this affect the other players on those teams? The Fantasy Fixers take a look at each of the significant injuries in Week 1 and what are the next steps for fantasy owners.  Wide Receiver Tyreek Hill suffered a collarbone injury that will result in Hill missing multiple weeks. His absence in Week 1 opened the door wide open for Sammy Watkins to explode to the tune of 9 catches for 198 yards and 3 touchdowns. Watkins always exhibited talent but has been injury-prone throughout his career, missing 18 games in the last three seasons. The Fantasy Fixers advise all owners to pick up Sammy Watkins immediately and also keep in mind rookie wide receiver Micole Hardman.  Nick Foles suffered a broken clavicle in his Week 1 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Foles was placed on Injured Reserve and will be eligible to return Week 11. Foles may want to hurry back after he saw what rookie Gardner Minshew II accomplished when he took over. All Minshew did was go 22 of 25 passing for 275 yards and two touchdowns. The Fantasy Fixers talking quarterback controversy? Another injury with fantasy impact was suffered by San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman. He suffered the dreaded high-ankle sprain. The initial prognosis is a two to six-week recovery, but that's a tricky injury which could result in lingering pain throughout the remainder of the season. Matt Breida is the biggest benefactor, and The Fantasy Fixers want owners to check their waiver wire for his availability. Also, the guys think that Raheem Mostert is a sneaky pickup as he played well when Coleman went down on Sunday. Pick Up City Fantasy Football owners who consistently win all have one thing in common. They all play the waiver wire. There will always be injuries and players who don't perform. Championship caliber owners examine the available players and know who to pick up and when.  The Fantasy Fixers reviewed the Week 1 results and discovered who are the best players to pick up. If you require a quarterback, Case Keenum looked like the old Case Keenum from the Minnesota Vikings and threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns. Rookie Gardner Minshew II replaced the injured Nick Foles and passed for two touchdowns.  Questions from the podcast team Which players benefited the most from the Week 1 injuries? Who should be the most added players in Fantasy Football as we head into Week 2? Are the Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens offense legit? Are the Miami Dolphins the worst team since the 1970s Tampa Bay Buccaneers? New to the show?

Handle your business: Antonio Browns a Patriot, wide receivers deals, and Cowboys
Antonio Brown - (New) New England Patriot Antonio Browns a New England Patriot and got what he wanted! He is no longer an Oakland Raider OR a Pittsburgh Steeler. Brown is a New England Patriot! The NFL can cheer! Realistically this is the most controversial signing we have seen since the Patriots traded for Randy Moss. Except at that time he was an Oakland Raider, had off the field issues, and the Raiders mainly got nothing for him. Yes, this situation is precisely the same. The only difference is the Patriots getting him for free. The whole situation seems staged, but it is just another chance for Bill Belichick to outsmart the competition. If Brown can be a different persona while with the Patriots, they are Super Bowl favorites.  Tyreek Hill and Julio Jones' significant contract extensions Although he got hurt on Sunday, Tyreek Hill got his extension. The other wide receiver that got an extension this weekend was Julio Jones. Jones kept things honest about his potential contract, and it seemed inevitable that the contract deal would be done. These deals are also now more expensive than Brown's contract in New England.  Dallas Cowboys - Zach Wolchuk of the Nosebleed Seats The Nosebleed Seats co-host Zach Wolchuk joined George to discuss the latest Ezekiel Elliott deal and potential deals for Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott. Prescott is the most likely to get his contract and after his performance on Sunday against the New York Giants.  Questions from the podcast team Did Antonio Brown pull off a robbery?  Did the New England Patriots tamper in the Antonio Brown situation? How much will Dak Prescott sign for? New to the show?

Any Given Friday: Antonio Brown, Dolphins tanking and Week 1 preview
Antonio Brown - The most magnificent drama in NFL history First, there were the feet, then the helmet, and now the Instagram post. The Oakland Raiders fined Antonio Brown for the second time since he was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Steelers fans on social media have been reaping the rewards as he has the possibility of being suspended now. Both Adam Shefter of ESPN and Ian Rappaport of NFL Network reported the potential suspension on Thursday morning. If Brown gets suspended, there is a major possibility that the Raiders will attempt to recoup the $30Mil signing bonus and Brown could end up off the team.  Giants vs. Cowboys - The team picks a winner In a new weekly segment in which the podcast team picks a game of the week, Kai'Chien and Eric talk about the New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys. Unlike the years past, this game will be played on Fox at 4:25 pm EST. One of the debate topics was about Ezekiel Elliott and his potential impact on the game. Elliott got his new deal with the Cowboys and will most likely be on a snap count on Sunday. The more important news that Eric was interested in is the potential of seeing Daniel Jones on Sunday in the event Eli Manning is pulled. To tank or not to tank, that is the question One thing is evident to our podcast hosts; the Miami Dolphins are not tanking. However, don't take this the wrong way. The belief from our hosts is that the Dolphins are rebuilding and not tanking. They can be compared to the same thing, but tanking involves little to no talent. It is argued from both hosts that tanking in the NFL does not work as it does in the NBA. The difference in 40 players, 13 in the NBA and 53 in the NFL. The NBA makes it easy to tank and potentially hit the lottery. There are 53 players on an NFL roster, however, and they aren't going on the field to lose. Tanking in the NBA takes 3-4 years. In the NFL if you hit it right, i.e., the 2018 Cleveland Browns, you start to get back into the groove. The Dolphins did make an effort to go away with how they do business, and in the past, they would've traded for Antonio Brown. A step in the right direction.  Questions from the podcast team Is Antonio brown going to be an Oakland Raider in three weeks? Could the New York Giants win in week 1? Does tanking exist in football? Will the Miami Dolphins tank work? New to the show?

Against the spread: Rams hangover a possibility and Seahawks to contend
Cross-Country Hangover? The Los Angeles Rams begin their defense, of defending that they aren’t going to fall victim to the Super Bowl hangover curse. The Rams will travel coast-to-coast and head to Carolina where a potent offense and solid defense can start this season with a significant headache for newly rich-man  Jared Goff. Todd Gurley is as healthy as he could ever be for Week 1  and let us see how he holds up on the road. The Super Bowl hangover always comes creeping and the Rams are favorites to get the dreaded curse.  Are you ready for some Football? The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears kick off the 2019 season in a continuation of the league’s most storied rivalry. Will, the Bears, defend their home field and if so, can they cover the spread of a field goal?  With this game on Thursday night, the available player props are discussed, and both running backs are excellent stocks to ride early. Seattle Rolls The Cincinnati Bengals are not heading into a positive outlook for 2019, and a contender for the 2020 top-pick. The Seattle Seahawks proved they are all-in for a title run with the trade for Jadaveon Clowney. The Seahawks will lean on Russell Wilson and running back Chris Carson to the ground and pound the Bengals into submission before a long flight back to Ohio. The line says you need a touchdown to win this for a Seattle cover but look for a double-digit victory for the home team. Unlike their NFC West rivals in the Rams, the Seahawks look ready to take the league by storm.  Questions from the podcast team •    Will the Rams fall victim to a Super Bowl hangover?•    Is there a Week 1 upset special?•    Who are the players to target for daily fantasy and prop plays?

Nosebleed Seats: Elliott gets his deal and a Laremy Tunsil rant
Ezekiel Elliott - Contract talks finally over? It looks like the Dallas Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott are finally agreeing on a contract extension. This has been a long time coming, and gladly for Cowboys fans, this is coming to a close.  There was the Twitter meme of Zeke who but getting rid of someone like Elliott does not bode well for a team in the situation like the Cowboys. The Cowboys are a growing team and have a crazy amount of talent on both sides of the football. On offense, they have their excellent offensive line, Amari Cooper, Jason Witten back, and of course Dak Prescott. Their defense has a new million-dollar man in Jaylon Smith and of course stud linebacker and second-year man Leighton Vander Esch. The team is ready to compete, and although Dak Prescott has been serviceable for the Cowboys, he stands no chance to compete for a Super Bowl without his star and two-time league-leading rusher in Elliott.  Laremy Tunsil - THE RANT We leave the title in all-caps because that's what it deserves. Living in Dallas but a hardcore Miami Dolphins fan, Eric Chiofalo is not happy about the Laremy Tunsil trade. The rant is one to listen to, and he shares the same issues that most Dolphins fans share today. The trade was one to remember, and if the Dolphins don't screw up their future, then it will be a good one. Fans of the Cowboys can rest easy knowing that Elliott will be there this week, but Dolphins fans will be pouring one out for Tunsil and Kenny Stills. Here's to tank season! Questions from the podcast team Did Jerry Jones cave during the Ezekiel Elliott talks?  Were the Miami Dolphins in the wrong for trading Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills? Who won in the Elliott vs. Jones family war? New to the show?

Fantasy Fixers: Carson to thrive in Seattle and Odell Beckham Jr. looks to splash in his debut
Chris Carson - Start Going into his third season in the NFL Chris Carson should be a fantasy magnet. His first season at age 23 he was only apart of 4 games in the season and 208 yards. Last season he started 14 games in the season while rushing for 1151 yards and 9 touchdowns.  Carson has only ascended in the past two years as the Seahawks running back and will ultimately trend upward. Picking him up in fantasy will be an excellent idea for any fantasy owner looking for a running back to produce on the field. With the team in Seattle being significantly better, Carson should benefit from this potential success.  Odell Beckham Jr. - More success  OBJ has been one of the most prolific receivers in the NFL since he entered the league. Whether they were one-handed catches or taking slant routes to the house, OBJ was successful. He will now go from an aging QB in Eli Manning to a young and hungry QB in Baker Mayfield. Mayfield had one of the best rookie seasons from a QB and will now add OBJ to his talent selection. There will be a lot of football needed to go around, but there is no doubt that OBJ will get his fair share.  Questions from the podcast team What team signs LeSean McCoy? Is McCoy still fantasy-relevant?   Who are your favorite sleepers for the 2019 season?   Which players are going to be fantasy gold in Week 1? New to the show?

Handle your business: Clowney gets his wish and the Dolphins are in full tank mode
Jadeveon Clowney - Smartest move in player history? Jadeveon Clowney has pulled off what might be the smartest chess move that the NFL has seen by a player. Not only did Clowney get the trade that he wanted, but he also got traded to the Seattle Seahawks where they didn't have to give up anything. The Seahawks gave up a third-round pick, Barkevious Mingo, and Jacob Martin. They gave up nothing to acquire the star defensive end and even if they can't get Clowney to sign the dotted line they will benefit this season.  Clowney was headed to the Miami Dolphins and even met with the team until he refused a trade to Miami. He waited to sign his tender till he was going to be traded to the team that he wanted to go to. Whether he gets his big contract from the Seahawks is a different story and something that will rely on his play on the field. Miami Dolphins - Tank season By trading away Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills for future assets, Johnson Bademosi, and Julien Davenport it could be tank season in Miami. The Dolphins decided that they could not pass up the offer from the Houston Texans and Bill O'Brien. The Dolphins are prepared to go into free agency, and the 2020 NFL draft with six potential top 100 picks and almost $140Mil in cap space. The Dolphins are setting themselves up for a bright future if everything goes their way.  Questions from the podcast team Are the Miami Dolphins officially tanking? Did the Houston Texans get fleeced in the Jadeveon Clowney, Laremy Tunsil, and Kenny Stills trades? New to the show?

Any given Friday: Dolphins officially trade Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Still for massive pick haul
Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills traded Miami Dolphins fans it is now official. The Dolphins traded Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills to the Houston Texans for a haul of picks. The Dolphins got a 2020 and 2021 first-round pick, a 2021 second-round pick, Jonson Bademosi, and Julie'n Davenport. The Texans in return got Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills, a 2020 fourth-round, and a 2021 sixth-round.  The Dolphins get a haul of picks, and it makes it seems evident to the NFL media, and it's fans that the tank is full force. Trading away Kenny Stills and Laremy Tunsil seemed like it was inevitable a few days ago, but after the Jadeveon Clowney trade to the Seattle Seahawks, a deal looked impossible. Then the Dolphins shocked their fans by going through and getting picks + players from Bill O'Brien.  The Texans did get a future franchise left tackle in Laremy Tunsil and an excellent wide receiver in Kenny Stills. This also shows fans that they are all in on the now and have mostly pulled a Brooklyn Nets and traded their future. The Nets came out of this situation winners in the long run and fans will hope that the Texans do as well.  Questions from the podcast team Who won this trade? Did Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills need to be traded from the Miami Dolphins New to the show?

Any given Friday: Josh Rosen named the backup for the Miami Dolphins and Gators vs UM reaction
Josh Rosen QB2 In the middle of the podcast recording, the news was announced from Brian Flores himself that the Miami Dolphins would be starting Ryan Fitzpatrick over Josh Rosen in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. The first reaction from our podcasts hosts is one for the ages as all three are huge Dolphins fans and Rosen supporters. Ultimately anything can happen, but our hosts agree that at some time this season. Rosen was the better quarterback during the second half of training camp and going into the pre-season. Rosen will start eventually, and when he does, he will have his chance to show Brian Flores and Chris Grier why there were wrong or why they were ultimately right. Dolphins fans should root for Rosen and hope that they don't have a Dolphins moment and draft Gators QB Felipe Franks next season.  Florida Gators vs. Miami Hurricanes instant reaction The Florida Gators and the Miami Hurricanes played in a college gameday Week 0 matchup last weekend. It was a sloppy game, and neither team looked like they wanted to win the game. With turnovers from the Gators that consisted of two critical fumbles and two picks from Felipe Franks. The Hurricanes played redshirt freshman quarterback Jarren Williams, and although sacked 10 times, Williams was decent for the Hurricanes and gave fans a reason to believe for the rest of the year.  Our podcast hosts had reason to be fired up as our resident Florida Gators fan Kai'Chien Chisholm and Miami Hurricane lover Eric Wiedeke got into a discussion about the game. This included the gloating from Kai'Chien as his Gators were able to beat the Hurricanes 24-20 in the Week 0 matchup.  Questions from the podcast team Are the Miami Hurricanes better than the nation thinks they are? Did the Florida Gators deserve to win the game against the Hurricanes? Should Josh Rosen be the Week 1 starter or is Ryan Fitzpatrick the obvious choice? New to the show?

Against the spread: Cowboys, Steelers and Seahawks are among the bang for your buck teams in 2019
Dallas Cowboys - Cowboy up to Miami in February? Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper lead the Dallas Cowboys offense and once Ezekiel Elliot returns this Super Bowl starved franchise has an all or nothing mentality in 2019. Elliot must answer for this Super Bowl fantasy to be a reality. However, should it take a month or so for the contract situation to be worked out, Tony Pollard can hold court. In a weak division, the Cowboys are a significant contender to go far in the playoffs and it couldstart with a division title. Who roots against Russell Wilson? At favorable odds to win the NFC West, Russell Wilson leads an all-out ground attack withrunning backs, Chris Carson and Rashad Penny. TJ Lockett is a target of Wilson’s to targetfor yourself in fantasy leagues.Defensively the Hawks are always a league-leader and a team that is virtually impossible toBeat at home. With a top-heavy division and potential four wins against the bottom-feedingNiners and Cardinals, look for Seattle to dethrone the Rams in the West Steelers as steady as can be as the class of AFC North Even with a loaded Browns team, a new full-season offensive experiment in Baltimore andtwo all-world offensive talents gone, the Steelers usually find a way to sneak into thedivision-winning conversation. James Conner leads the rushing attack in what he hopes to be a full 16 games, and perhaps there is a new Steelers receiver in the pantheon of WR studs in the Steal City. Will the Steelers hold off the Browns resurrection and holding it off another season or two or three? Questions from the podcast team Will the Cowboys run the East or are the Eagles poised to get back to Super Bowl form? Who is the class of the NFC North?

Nosebleed Seats: Clowney trade looming, Duke Johnson and the Houston Texans
Houston Texans - Jadeveon Clowney and Duke Johnson The Houston Texans have been looking on trades for a right amount of the offseason. They traded for former Cleveland Browns running back Duke Johnson and have officially put Jadeveon Clowney on the trade block. Duke Johnson could finally have his shot with the Houston Texans. After years of never being the guy with the Cleveland Browns, he now has the chance to be the guy. His fellow University of Miami graduate in Lamar Miller, unfortunately, tore his ACL over the weekend and barring any trade, Johnson will start. This most significant issue for the new shinny running back is the Jadeveon Clowney situation. According to reports on Twitter, the Texans would want either a starting offensive tackle, a running back, or a wide receiver. With official reports coming out that the Miami Dolphins have met with Jadeveon Clowney in person, Kenyan Drake could be a trade piece. This would be the worst situation for Duke Johnson due to Kenyan Drake being the more talented back and having a history as a longtime starter. There seems to be significant interest from the Miami Dolphins and with them not wanting to trade star left tackle Laremy Tunsil, Drake and Kenny Stills could be options. The Dolphins are looking to unload, and if Clowney gives the go-ahead for a trade, then it will most likely be the Miami Gardens destination. NFL Housekeeping: Andrew Luck news/Daniel Jones rant We won't dive too deep into Andrew Luck during this article, but our hosts from the Nosebleed Seats were more shocked about the Luck retirement than a potential Jadeveon Clowney trade. This was a sticky situation for the Indianapolis Colts and Luck. During the podcast, there is also a funny rant from Zach Wolchuk on New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. Questions from the podcast team Is Andrew Luck going down as the best "What if?" in NFL history? Where do you think Jadeveon Clowney should be traded? Is Duke Johnson in a better position to be the next guy in Houston? New to the show?

Fantasy Fixers: Andrew Luck and Lamar Miller effect fantasy football
Andrew Luck - Retirement and impact on fantasy football This weekend was filled with stunners. Lamar Miller tore an ACL and Andrew Luck retired from the game of football. Our hosts look into the injury to Luck and what it means for fantasy football owners. The Andrew Luck retirement was shocking, and our hosts dive into it as well throughout the podcast and give their opinions on the news.  This news was perfect for our fantasy fixers podcast as they were able to discuss whether you should still include Indianapolis Colts players in your fantasy team. With the Andrew Luck retirement, this means Jacoby Brissett will now take the full time starting role. Not having Andrew Luck will put the team at a huge disadvantage and will be something to monitor on the fantasy football end if you decide to take a chance with Brissett.  Lamar Miller - Torn ACL Miami Dolphins, Miami Hurricanes, and most importantly, Houston Texans fans have reasons to be sad as well. EX-Dolphins player and the former University of Miami running back Lamar Miller tore his ACL over the weekend in a preseason game for the Houston Texans. This is sad for Miller as he finally looked like this would be his year for the Texans. Now with another setback, Miller will have to watch from the sidelines and see his fellow Hurricane running back in Duke Johnson get his moment in the spotlight. With a contract looming soon, Miller could be looking at the last big deal of his career.  Lamar Miller was a good running back with the Miami Dolphins, and the Miami native was a hero at times for Dolphins fans. When he followed the money and signed with the Houston Texans, he has been above average for the Texans.  These issues are not to say that Lamar Miller has been awful though. Without starting all 16 games in his three seasons with the Texans, Miller has rushed for 2,934-yards and 13 touchdowns. It hasn't been the worst production from Miller, but it hasn't been what the contract warrants. It sucks to see him go down and hopefully he comes back at close to full strength next season. The AFC South has lost a lot of talent between the injuries to Miller and Andrew Luck and fans will miss it.  Questions from the podcast team Do you think Lamar Miller will be back in Houston for the rest of his career? Were you just as shocked about the Andrew Luck news as our hosts? Did you draft Andrew Luck in your fantasy league? New to the show?

Handle your business: Latest news on Laremy Tunsil, Jadeveon Clowney potential trades, and Andrew Luck retiring
Laremy Tunsil - possible trade With Andrew Luck retiring and Jadeveon Clowney nearly traded, this weekend had it all. To accompany a long weekend of information, PFN Owner Matthew Cannata and PFN draft analyst Tony Pauline reported through the PFN twitter that Laremy Tunsil could be available at the right price. Before this article goes further, I will quote a specific piece from an article Cannta posted on Saturday night. "But before we go on, let’s make this clear. Our news is not that Laremy Tunsil is being traded. Lots of trades materialize and then die. Any football fan knows this. Our news is that Laremy Tunsil is even on the trade block, to begin with, and that the Dolphins are listening to offers."  With that being said, during the article, George explains why the Miami Dolphins might want to trade a player like Laremy Tunsil and the impact it could have on the Miami Dolphins. With Andrew Luck retiring and Jadeveon Clowney nearly traded, this weekend had it all. Andrew Luck retires The stone-cold stunner of the year award goes to former Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck. Adam Schefter reported in the middle of a Colts game on Saturday that QB Andrew Luck would announce his retirement from the NFL on Sunday. After all the shock and crazy tweets, the game ended and Luck went to the podium to announce his retirement and gave his speech. Luck has been injured for four years now and has been on and off the injury train. During his speech, Andrew Luck talked about why he decided to give up the game he loved playing. He explained that he needed to find a way out, injuries were getting to him, and the issues with playing the game of football. Luck further told the media that he just felt stuck in the injuries and it was taking a toll on him. Instantly fans, media, and players went on twitter to console Luck and to wish that he finds his peace. It was a sad moment for the NFL, and it's fans as they lost a great QB. There were the boos from the crowd, the media members being rude on twitter, and fans booing jerseys, but the support on twitter from players shows how great of a player and person Luck was. Jadeveon Clowney - One foot out the door in Houston Not only was there Laremy Tunsil news over the weekend but again, PFN Owner Matthew Cannata and PFN Draft analyst Tony Pauline reported that the Miami Dolphins were making a strong push for Jadeveon Clowney. This was also tied into a report on Sunday that the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills could be interested in pursuing Clowney themselves.   Something that will be key to look out for in the trade talks is if the Miami Dolphins jump the gun and offer Laremy Tunsil in trade talks for the star pass rusher. Adding someone like Laremy Tunsil to the Houston Texans will be crucial, but the Dolphins will have to jump on this for it to become a reality. Questions from the podcast team Should the Indianapolis Colts draft a QB this year or rely on the future of Jacoby Brisset? Will Laremy Tunsil be traded before the start of week one? Could a Laremy Tunsil for Jadeveon Clowney deal be in the works in the next few days? New to the show? Did you enjoy the podcast?

Any given Friday: Patrick Chung indicted and potential hot seat head coaches
Patrick Chung - Drug charge for cocaine possession Of course, making a joke about the situation for Patrick Chung is so common that we will save it here. The case for Chung and the New England Patriots blows, and the Patriots could have a significant hole in their defense this season. Ultimately this is the Patriots and assuming that they will lack in a position on defense is funny. This will be a new situation; however, as Chung has been an essential piece of that defense for so many years. AFC East opponents know about the impact of Patriots defenses and the impact that Chung makes for the secondary. He has never been a superstar, hasn't commanded the crazy money, but that is the Patriot way. Sign quality players, use their prime, and if they are truly apart of the Patriot way, then they take less money to stay and win.  For fans of the AFC East it is a revolving door of New England Patriot players and as much as they are hoping that the situation for Patrick Chung is more and he doesn't play. They should know that another player will fill that spot quickly. As stated, it's the Patriots way.  Coaches on the hot seat  Mr. Cole Thompson (TWITTER) is a fan favorite here on the Any given Friday podcast. Every week we seem to cover an article from him, and this week is no different. This week our team looks at his latest article "NFL: Which head coaches are on the hot seat in 2019?". During the podcast, only two of the ten coaches were talked about. For further insight, the article will be linked again here and is mentioned and discussed about during the podcast.  Questions from the podcast team Do you think that Patrick Chung will play another down for the New England Patriots? Is Patrick Chung in for a lot of legal trouble headed his way? New to the show? Did you enjoy the podcast?

Against the spread: Aaron Rodgers potential under and a look at Dak Prescott
Aaron Rodgers - 4,000 yard under For Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers our hosts expect the under. From injuries the past few years and the potential of a run-heavy offense, they don't expect a massive year from Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers has been the discount double-check man for years at this point and is a Super Bowl-winning quarterback. Rodgers hasn't had a full season of production where he threw for less than 4,000 yards since 2015. Since then he threw for 4,428 in 2016, then 1,675 the year after (dealt with injuries and played in only 7 games), and last year he threw for 4,442 yards. With these stats in mind, it isn't impossible to see Rodgers throwing for less than 4,000, but it is an under that could bring a bang for your buck.  With a new head coach and a different offensive system this year, the Green Bay Packers will need Aaron Rodgers to produce for them. The running game could be a factor for the Packers this season and could potentially take yards away from Rodgers. Hopefully, for Rodgers and Packers fans he is also injury-free this season. Questions from the podcast team Is there a potential for Aaron Rodgers to fall under a 4,000-yard season this year? Are you placing bets on the Green Bay Packers to make the playoffs this season? Will Aaron Rodgers succeed this season with new coaching in Green Bay? New to the show? Did you enjoy the podcast?

Any given Friday: Daniel Jones and Baker Mayfields comments on him
Baker Mayfield - Daniel Jones comments The New York Giants drafted Daniel Jones with the number six overall draft pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Since then, the Giants and Jones have been destroyed on Twitter and other platforms by fans and media alike.  After the first preseason game for Daniel Jones, some opinions were slightly changed. The one who hasn't changed was Baker Mayfield. Mayfield made the comments that Daniel Jones is not a winner and he was shocked that the New York Giants drafted Daniel Jones. For the record, Mayfield and Jones played in two different situations in their collegiate careers. Mayfield was a started for the Oklahoma Sooners who were successful with head coach Lincoln Riley after transferring from Texas Tech. Jones, however, played for Duke and Duke has never been known for its football expertise. Duke is a basketball college and Jones didn't have a winning record (17-19) but worked with what he had. The big step for Daniel Jones will be his first NFL start/game. If Jones can come out and provide an impact on the field, he will shut his critics up very quickly. Ezekiel Elliott - Contract disputes Ezekiel Elliott who? Jerry Jones thought it was funny to say that comment. Elliott is a star running back in the NFL, and even if Jones doesn't think the Cowboys need Elliott, that might not be the case. Elliott led the league in rushing two of his three NFL years, and the Cowboys have always been known to be a running football team. They could do running back by a committee, but they will need Elliott if they don't do an excellent job in week one. On top of this, the Cowboys could lose to a Daniel Jones led team without Elliott in the backfield. Questions from the podcast team Did the comments from Baker Mayfield about Daniel Jones make you feel a little for Jones? Will Daniel Jones be a franchise quarterback for the New York Giants? Do the Dallas Cowboys need Ezekiel Elliott? New to the show? Did you enjoy the podcast?

Fantasy Fixers: Josh Gordon reinstated and a look at Ezekiel Elliott
Josh Gordon - Reinstated The most interesting wide receiver in the NFL has been reinstated and is back with the New England Patriots. The Patriots will get their #10 back in Josh Gordon for as long as he stays on good terms with the team and the NFL.  Josh Gordon is a gold mine for fantasy users who drafted Gordon in the later rounds of their drafts. When healthy, not suspended, and on the field Gordon produces. If he can stay fit and within the guidelines provided by the NFL, then the Patriots will be a scary team, and Gordon will produce points for fantasy owners.  In just 11 games last year for the New England Patriots, Josh Gordon caught 68 balls and 3 touchdowns. During his first two years with the Cleveland Browns Gordon caught 137 balls for 2,451 yards and 14 touchdowns. Those were scary numbers considering who he was playing with on the Browns. It will take a lot for Gordon to be a Patriot player but this year could be scary for NFL teams and fantasy football owners if he and Tom Brady click on the field.  Ezekiel Elliott - Will he ever return? It seems like a never-ending saga with Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys. After recent comments by Jerry Jones, it would be a miracle for Elliott to play another snap in a Cowboys uniform. Just like we saw last season with Le'Veon Bell, Elliott is ready to sit out and wants a new deal.  Questions from the podcast team When are fantasy owners selecting Josh Gordon in their fantasy drafts? Are the expectations too high for the Arizona Cardinals? If/when are you drafting Antonio Brown? Will Ezekiel Elliott play another snap for the Dallas Cowboys? New to the show?

Handle your business: Jay-Z and Roc nation make a deal with the NFL
Jay-Z and the NFL make a deal The NFL and hip-hop/rap icon Jay-Z has made a deal to involve Roc Nation with the NFL and its social justice. There have been some that disagree with Jay-Z and how he and his company will be involved with the NFL. By now everyone knows the story about Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid, Kenny Stills, and others and their fight against police brutality. Since Kaepernick took his stand and kneeled on the sidelines, only Stills and Reid are currently in the NFL.  The anger from Jay-Z and this deal stems from the issues with Kaepernick and him not playing in the NFL. Eric Reid, in particular, has expressed his anger with the deal both on Twitter and in interviews. Those that are angry are mad that Jay-Z and his company Roc Nation would align themselves with the NFL while the Kaepernick is not in the NFL.  On the business aspect for Jay-Z and Roc nation, it is a slam dunk. The money they will continue to make is unmatched, and they will be involved in all big NFL deals most likely. It has also been rumored that the NFL made a deal with Jay-Z where he will be a part-owner of a franchise soon.  Questions from the podcast team How involved will Jay-Z get in the Super Bowl halftime show and will we see Roc Nation artists like DJ Khaled and Rihanna performing in the future? How will Roc Nation work with the NFLPA and the NFL on the "Inspire Change" program? New to the show? Did you enjoy the podcast? Make sure to follow our host George Templeton on Twitter: @temptherat.

Any given Friday: Andrew Luck injured again and possible 2018 comebacks
Andrew Luck is injured again Unfortunately for Indianapolis Colts fans Andrew Luck is once again injured. Owner Jim Irsay said that it is a "little bone injury" even though it was reported as a calf injury. The injury for Luck will make another setback for his season and the Colts.  During the podcast, Corey and Kai'Chien discuss an article from PFN writer Eric Frosbutter about the injury to Andrew Luck. Luck is a top-five quarterback when he is healthy, and the unfortunate issue for Luck and the Colts is the setback as a team. When first-round bust Eric Ebron was starting to star and connect with Luck, he will have to gain some trust with backup quarterback Jacoby Brisset. Brisset is a serviceable backup but won't compare to what Luck and Ebron built on the field.  With as talented of a team as the Colts have, Andrew Luck will need to get healthy as soon as possible for the Indianapolis Colts to have the impact they will want to have in the AFC South and further into the playoffs.  Possible 2018 disappointments no more A second PFN article reviewed by our hosts was an article from our writer Neal Driscoll. Without giving away the contents of the article and the podcasts thoughts on it, Kai'Chien and Corey dive deep into his choices.  Amongst the group of five that Neal Driscoll picks, the most intriguing to Kai'Chien and Corey were Vita Vea (12th pick), Taven Bryan (29th pick), and of course Josh Rosen (10th pick). Of the three they choose only Josh Rosen has been moved to a different team. Corey and Kai'Chien believe that all three can come in and make an impact this season for their teams and hope for the best for all of them.  Questions from the podcast team Will the Indianapolis Colts be fine without their starting quarterback Andrew Luck? Will Andrew Luck be healthy for the Colts this season? Do you think the Colts should be looking for a quarterback in the near future? New to the show? Did you enjoy the podcast?
