Fantasy Football Podcast
This is it! Our final fantasy football podcast of 2018. Thank you for an amazing season -- today we'll celebrate with our postseason hardware for the best and worst '18 performances in fantasy, plus we'll listen to the very best and funniest songs and moments from the entire year. Happy New Year! Guest: Cousin Josh (@DetectiveFisch).
The titles are mostly won, the games that count are over -- so what did you make of the 2018 experience? We'll talk about that today, plus we'll do a Film Futures segment on Colts rookie running back Nyheim Hines, we'll quickly review the Week 17 ranks for those unfortunate enough to be playing fantasy football this weekend, and we'll tackle our final DraftKings contest of the season! Guest: DFS Expert Sharone Mitchell (@MitchDontLie).
It's championship weekend, and we'll talk a little about constructing your lineup and also the injury guys you need to keep track of for Week 16. But the bulk of today's podcast is about 2019: we'll count down five players we suspect will wind up being undervalued by the fantasy football draft market next season. And that inevitably leads to a conversation about the market in general! Fun! Guest: Cousin Josh (@DetectiveFisch).
A ton of player news dropped late Wednesday and early Thursday, and we'll talk about the fantasy football championship ramifications for Josh Gordon, James Conner, Cam Newton and others. We'll also sift through your most commonly asked about flex questions to help fix your lineups for Week 16, and we'll talk about an exciting Week 16 in DraftKings! Guest: DFS Expert Sharone Mitchell (@MitchDontLie).
Is Derrick Henry an automatic start? Should we think about sitting Aaron Rodgers or Jared Goff? There are many lineup decisions still to be made for your fantasy football title game, and today's podcast will address some of the most urgent. Should you handcuff anyone to Todd Gurley? Should you trust Robby Anderson? Should you bench Jordan Howard? Let's talk through the Week 16 ranks! Guest: Scott Pianowski of Yahoo! Fantasy (@scott_pianowski).
What is up with Drew Brees and the Saints? And Derrick Henry suddenly being awesome at football? We'll tackle those questions, and we'll also look at scads more Week 15 game film to get you ready for championship week (or simply to help inform your dynasty decisions). And then we'll spin it forward and work through the many sudden potential flex options that may prevent themselves on your Week 16 waiver wire! Guest: Brandon Funston of The Athletic (@BrandonFunston).
The fantasy football playoffs continue, and we had triumph and we had heartbreak. Let's review what happened, from Aaron Jones and Lamar Miller pulling unfortunate vanishing acts to Marlon Mack and Doug Baldwin emerging from sleepy-time to propel you into your fantasy finals. A huge weekend, we'll watch it all, and our podcast will report what happened! Guest: Jamey Eisenberg from CBS Fantasy (@JameyEisenberg).

Guest: Cousin Josh (@DetectiveFisch).
Big lineup decisions looming, lots of unfortunate Week 15 injury news, we'll talk through some of it on today's podcast: Thursday night's Chargers/Chiefs game has *two* RB injuries that'll potentially shake up your lineup, Carson Wentz looks like he he's out, and more bad stuff.
