Thanksgiving Day reactions and Week 12 injuries to watch
2642

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down Texans-Lions and Football Team-Cowboys before going through injuries to watch ahead of Sunday. Deshaun Watson and Will Fuller lit up the scorebard on Thursday, but we also shouldn't count out Brandin Cooks and Duke Johnson staying hot in Week 13 and beyond. Things were less smooth for the Lions; just realize Matthew Stafford continues to show off some of the best arm talent in the league on a weekly basis. It was Antonio Gibson szn Thursday afternoon, but give credit to Amari Cooper for also having a big day at Jerry World. Ian finishes the show with injury analysis on the likes of John Brown, Lamar Jackson, Chris Carson, Sam Darnold, Austin Ekeler, Myles Gaskin, Jerry Jeudy and much more.

Week 12 game-by-game breakdown
5326

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

Rams-Buccaneers reactions and Week 12 waiver wire thoughts
1878

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Rams' Monday night victory over the Buccaneers and goes through the week's most-popular waiver wire candidates. Tom Brady threw a pair of awful interceptions, but his condensed target share around the Bucs' top-three WRs could prove useful ahead of a cozy final regular season stretch. Jared Goff threw a whopping 51 passes, enabling both Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp to huge days. The problem: this three-headed backfield is as murky as ever. Ian closes things out with analysis on potential waiver wire additions such as Michael Pittman, Wayne Gallman, Keke Coutee, James White and much more.

Week 11 fantasy football takeaways and reactions
5683

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down every Week 11 game from Sunday with a focus on usage, injuries and notes that you won't find in the box score. Both Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt found the end zone against the Eagles; keep firing them up as borderline RB1s moving forward. We seemed to witness the Ravens finally free J.K. Dobbins, while AJB WR1 szn managed to come to fruition after a rough start. Deshaun Watson was absolutely marvelous in the Texans' victory over the Patriots, while Diontae Johnson kept right on balling out against the Jaguars. The Taysom Hill experiment went great from a fantasy perspective, but be careful in dubbing this group as a superior version to the Brees-led Saints offense. Additional conversation includes thoughts on: P.J. Walker's debut, Joe Burrow's injury, Aaron Rodgers' performance against the Colts, Derek Carr's nearly-great comeback win, and much more.

Nov 23, 2020
Seahawks-Cardinals reactions and Week 11 injury updates
2045

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Seahawks' 28-21 victory over the Cardinals and goes through some of the top injuries to watch ahead of Sunday. Russell Wilson didn't put up his usual massive numbers, but he played extremely smart throughout the game and could've had a bigger performance if D.K. Metcalf hadn't dropped an easy TD. Carlos Hyde was the undisputed bell-cow back and deserves continued RB2 treatment as long as Chris Carson remains sidelined. Kyler Murray was surprisingly shut down as a rusher, and his passing production oddly didn't enable either Christian Kirk or DeAndre Hopkins to big performances. Ian finishes things up by touching on a number of injuries including: Alvin Kamara, Teddy Bridgewater, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Sammy Watkins, Davante Adams, D'Andre Swift and much more.

10 questions with Marcus Mosher
2294

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by Marcus Mosher, who hosts the Locked On Cowboys and Locked On Dynasty podcasts. The guys start things off by ranking Kyler Murray as a dynasty QB before pondering who would be the top WR to own in Pittsburgh moving forward. Marcus isn't too confident in Lamar Jackson and the Ravens turning things around in 2020, but better days should be ahead. Ian gushes over D'Andre Swift's Week 10 performance, and Marcus believes we could see more big games ahead. Additional topics include: whether or not Antonio Gibson can break away from J.D. McKissic anytime soon, if Jerry Jeudy can overcome Drew Lock, if we should trust Michael Pittman, and much more.

01:13 Who would you have ahead of Kyler Murry in Dynasty

Week 11 game-by-game breakdown
4495

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

Vikings-Bears reactions and Week 11 waiver wire thoughts
2085

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Vikings' Monday night victory over the Bears and gives his thoughts on some of the week's most-popular targets on the waiver wire. Kirk Cousins picked up the first Monday Night Football win of his career, enabling Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen to great performances along the way. Dalvin Cook didn't have his best game, but the usage was borderline erotic. It's Cordarrelle Patterson's world, we're all just living in it. Ian gives his waiver wire opinion on the likes of Salvon Ahmed, Jameis Winston, Damien Harris, Kalen Ballage, Cam Akers and more.

Nov 17, 2020
Fantasy football takeaways and reactions from Week 10
5504

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday by providing usage notes, injury analysis and plenty of actionable stats along the way. Look for both Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb to function as fantasy RB1s moving forward. Duke Johnson week didn't turn out exactly as we hoped, but the usage was better than expected. Credit to Alex Smith for playing his best game of the season, and praise should also be dished out to D'Andre Swift for his electric performance. TB12 and company put up 46 points and still didn't reach their full potential. Justin Herbert finally had a floor game, but it was still pretty solid for fantasy purposes. Ian touches on the rest of the games and highlights: Kyler Murray's amazing Hail Mary, Derek Carr playing better than the box score suggested, Big Ben putting up some serious numbers recently, Cam Newton and company's big-time win, and much more.

Nov 16, 2020
Colts-Titans reactions and Week 10 injuries to watch
1904

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Colts' Thursday night win over the Titans and goes over some of the key injuries to monitor ahead of Sunday. A.J. Brown WR1 szn unfortunately came to an end, but Ian isn't worried about the Titans' stud receiver bouncing back. Derrick Henry cleared the century mark, although his lack of pass-game usage continued to be annoying. Nyheim Hines and Michael Pittman stole the show for the Colts, as Jonathan Taylor fantasy football managers reached a new level of tilt. Ian provides depth chart ramifications and injury thoughts on: Deebo Samuel, Noah Fant, Kenyan Drake, David Montgomery, T.J. Hockenson, Nick Chubb, Joe Mixon, and much more.

Nov 13, 2020
Top 10 Week 10 storylines with Field Yates
2222

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates. The guys start off discussing what to make of the Washington and Indianapolis backfields in Week 10 and beyond. Both Ian and Field are confident that Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt can provide high-end value together, but things aren't quite so clear in this suddenly-crowded Eagles offense. Field decides which RB he'd want to represent planet Earth if the aliens invaded tomorrow and forced us to play a football game. Ian agrees with Field's assessment that Antonio Brown might just emerge as the most fantasy-friendly WR in Tampa Bay. The guys also discuss Cam Newton's chances against the Ravens, if Justin Herbert and Joe Burrow can overcome their respectively tough Week 10 matchups, who to start on the Rams ahead of their shootout against the Seahawks, and finally who would you rather have between A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf in a neutral situation.

Nov 12, 2020
Week 10 game-by-game breakdown
4312

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF and Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all 14 games in Week 10. The guys pay tribute as always to A.J. Brown being a WR1 before asking tougher questions about the respective states of the Colts run game and the rest of the Titans offense. Dwain has high expectations for Jarvis Landry moving forward, while Ian isn't afraid to go back to the well with Antonio Brown as an upside WR2 this week. Agreement is reached on D.J. Chark being a more than viable WR2 despite a potential shadow date with Jaire Alexander. Additional conversation is provided on topics including: Jerry Jeudy szn, the Seahawks-Rams' likely shootout, why J.D. McKissic is a thing, if Justin Herbert or Joe Burrow can handle their respective tough matchups, Jakobi Meyers and much more.

Nov 11, 2020
Patriots-Jets reactions and Week 10 waiver wire thoughts
2288

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Patriots' Monday night win over the Jets and provides his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire options. Cam Newton again found fantasy success thanks in large part to his legs, but we also saw a new productive player emerge from this offense in Jakobi Meyers. Credit to Joe Flacco for largely playing great until the middle of the fourth quarter. Breshad Perriman might just be the Jets WR to roster as long as Sam Darnold remains sidelined. Ian finishes off the show with waiver wire thoughts on the likes of: David Moore, J.D. McKissic, Duke Johnson, Curtis Samuel, Allen Lazard, Lamar Miller, Drew Lock and more.

Nov 10, 2020
Fantasy football takeaways and reactions from Week 9
5255

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable notes on usage, injuries and film observations. Drew Lock made things interesting again late despite having his back against the wall, and he's earned his AFC West Jameis nickname. Josh Allen outdueled Russell Wilson and company; there's no reason why we should expect Allen to stop being an elite (fantasy) QB anytime soon. Ian does his weekly AJB WR1 szn victory lab before discussing many more topics including: Lamar Jackson's up-and-down performance, how it's unfair the Chiefs combine such sound scheme with their high-level talent, Dalvin Cook's big day, will J.D. McKissic ever go away, Deshaun Watson playing better than ever, Kyler Murray being a fantasy cheatcode, and much more.

Nov 09, 2020
Packers-49ers reaction and Week 9 injury notes
1855

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Packers' blowout victory over the 49ers and gives analysis on key injuries around the league. Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams are operating in a different universe in terms of chemistry. Don't expect Richie James to mimic Adams' production so well moving forward. Surprisingly, injury concerns didn't stop Jerick McKinnon nor Aaron Jones from receiving bell-cow roles. Ian finishes things off with injury notes on Chris Carson, T.Y. Hilton, Mark Ingram, Christian McCaffrey, Calvin Ridley, Chris Godwin and much more.

Nov 06, 2020
Top-10 Week 9 storylines with Jason Moore
2381

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by co-host of The Fantasy Footballers podcast Jason Moore. The guys start off by discussing whether or not this Ravens passing game can rebound before giving Ryan Tannehill his due as a true top-10 QB. Jason picks his top rookie RB to ball out the rest of the season and notes that Ezekiel Elliott is no longer a must-start RB. Additional topics include: expectations for Antonio Brown, what to make of the new-look Buccaneers backfield, Raiders-Chargers potential shootout, Christian McCaffrey's return and whether or not Cam Newton and company can get back on track against the Jets.

0:20 Intro

01:27 What to make of the Ravens offense moving forward

Week 9 game-by-game breakdown
3933

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

Buccaneers-Giants reactions and Week 9 waiver wire thoughts
2276

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Buccaneers' Monday night victory over the Giants and provides his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire additions. Daniel Jones didn't exactly play a perfect game, but he did keep the Giants far closer than most anticipated and threw a b-e-a-utiful TD to Golden Tate to nearly force OT. Darius Slayton probably has the most reason to be pissed at Jones considering the amount of times he got open deep only to not receive a target. TB12 threw TDs to Gronk and Mike Evans, while Leonard Fournette received the heavy majority of the backfield's usage after Ronald Jones fumbled a deflected check-down. Waiver wire section includes thoughts on: Jordan Wilkins, Deejay Dallas, Zack Moss, Marvin Jones, Corey Davis, and much more.

Fantasy football takeaways and reactions from Week 8
4686

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable fantasy football takeaways. Ian starts things off with injury notes on Kenny Golladay, Darrell Henderson, Tevin Coleman and more. The game breakdowns start off with some rain filled battles, but Ian urges listeners to trust Derek Carr and this Raiders' passing game in better situations moving forward. Congrats to Tua on the win; just realize this overall offensive performance was atrocious. Lamar Jackson continues to put up gaudy rushing numbers, Joe Burrow is playing better than ever, and Patrick Mahomes went nuclear on Adam Gase and company. Ian finishes things off with thoughts on the Colts-Lions shootout, Dalvin Cook's massive game, Justin Herbert's historical rookie campaign, and much more.

Nov 02, 2020
Falcons-Panthers reactions and injuries to watch ahead of Week 8
1629

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Falcons' Thursday night victory over the Panthers and goes over some of the key injuries to watch ahead of Sunday. D.J. Moore didn't have the smoothest night, but luckily didn't leave his fantasy managers with a goose-egg. Teddy Bridgewater is okay after briefly leaving the game with a neck injury. Matt Ryan enabled Julio Jones to a patented performance with triple-digit yards and zero scores, but unfortunately Calvin Ridley (ankle) could be missing some time. Ian touches on an abundance of injuries ahead of Sunday including: Michael Thomas, Rams backfield, Diontae Johnson, Packers and Bengals backfields, Mark Ingram, Jamison Crowder and much more.

Week 8 game-by-game breakdown
4213

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by fellow PFF and Establish the Run fantasy analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all 14 games of the Week 8 slate. ATL @ CAR: Matt Ryan a QB1 with Julio Jones (1:27). PIT @ BAL: Hollywood Brown will get fed (4:35).NYJ @ KC: Don’t start any Jets players if possible (7:48). TEN @ CIN: Bengals offense should explode (13:41). LA @ MIA: Move on from Cam Akers (18:48). IND @ DET: Lions passing game not living up to potential (22:56). NE @ BUF: Cam Newton or bust for the Patriots (26:47). LV @ CLV: Rashard Higgins fills OBJ’s role (31:36). MIN @ GB: Jefferson and Thielen should be started (36:27). NO @ CHI: David Montgomery not getting chunk yards (40:07). SF @ SEA: Hard to trust Jimmy G (44:37). LAC @ DEN: Broncos offense out of sync (52:29). DAL @ PHI: Cooper/Elliott only fantasy worthy Cowboys (56:48). TB @ NYG: Sterling Shepard bouncing back (1:03:16).

Rams-Bears reaction and Week 8 waiver wire thoughts
1819

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Rams' 24-10 victory over the Bears and also gives his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire options. Nick Foles couldn't quite hook up with Darnell Mooney or Javon Wims on potential bombs, and A-Rob only had four targets. "Luckily" David Montgomery continued to show a slightly enhanced fantasy floor with 19 touches for 69-scoreless yards. Jared Goff and company didn't have the toughest evening at the office, but credit regardless to Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett for finding the end zone. Darrell Henderson continues to work as the offense's lead back, although Malcolm Brown isn't going anywhere. Ian finishes things up with thoughts on waiver wire options including: Chase Edmonds, Rashard Higgins, Nelson Agholor, Richard Rodgers, and more.

Oct 27, 2020
Fantasy football takeaways and reactions from Week 7
4824

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable fantasy football takeaways. Ian starts things off with injury notes on Kenyan Drake, Odell Beckham, Dionate Johnson, Jeff Wilson and more before getting to the matchups. Both Baker Mayfield and Joe Burrow put up massive numbers, but Kareem Hunt's huge snap share was a low-key major takeaway. Ian tips his hat to A.J. Brown putting forward another beastly performance before noting that both D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson have earned every-week WR2 (at-worst) treatment moving forward. Discussion continues with a look at Antonio Gibson's big day, just how absurd Davante Adams' workload has been, as well Tom Brady's very-much-alive arm. Ian finishes things off with thoughts on the Cardinals' thrilling Sunday night victory over the Seahawks.

Oct 26, 2020
Giants-Eagles takeaways plus Week 7 injury news and advice
2075

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Eagles' Thursday night comeback victory over the Giants. Carson Wentz continues to supply fantasy-friendly goodness thanks to his newfound rushing upside. Boston Scott will remain a RB2 as long as Miles Sanders is sidelined, and we should tentatively expect Travis Fulgham to continue seeing plenty of action even once Alshon Jeffery returns. Daniel Jones is also looking like a dual-threat talent these days, although the Giants' banged-up backfield is now further injured with Devonta Freeman (ankle) hurt. Kudos are given to Sterling Shepard before Ian wonders why Evan Engram doesn't have a more downfield-oriented role. Injury thoughts include notes on: DeAndre Hopkins, Joe Mixon, Noah Fant, Michael Thomas, A.J. Brown and much more.

Oct 23, 2020
Week 7 WR/CB matchups with Aqib Talib
1506

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by former all-pro and Super Bowl winning cornerback Aqib Talib to answer Week 7’s top wide receiver/cornerback matchup questions. Are the Rams’ CBs the real deal? (1:52). Can the 49ers’ passing attack beat the Pats’ secondary? (5:09). Will Carlton Davis and Jamel Dean lock up the Raiders? (8:25). Why don’t outside corners travel to the slot? (11:18). Can Arizona keep up with the Seahawks’ WRs? (13:38). Will Michael Thomas have his way in Carolina? (16:27). Will Jaire Alexander cement himself as a top-5 CB? (18:20). Can the Broncos hang with the Chiefs? (21:03).

Week 7 game-by-game breakdown
3127

Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF regular Andrew Erickson to break down every game from the Week 7 slate. The guys are in on Boston Scott as a fantasy RB2 over the next two weeks, but things are a bit less optimistic for anyone involved in the Giants offense at the moment. Expect both Josh Allen and Kareem Hunt to bounce back this week, while Breshad Perriman could be a sneaky DFS punt-play option. The Washington Football Team is set up well against the Cowboys defense because, like, who isn't. Further discussion includes thoughts on: CEH and Le'Veon Bell situation, if Jaguars-Chargers can be a sneaky shootout, what to make of Jimmy G's reluctance to throw downfield, and much more.

Oct 21, 2020
Chiefs-Bills and Cardinals-Cowboys reactions and Week 7 waiver wire thoughts
2301

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chiefs' victory over the Bills as well as the Cardinals' demolition over the Cowboys before getting in some waiver wire recommendations. Patrick Mahomes was excellent whenever asked to do pretty much anything, but Clyde Edwards-Helaire stole the show. RIP Mecole Hardman szn, but it shouldn't be too much longer that we see Tyreek Hill go without a massive performance. Better days should be ahead for Josh Allen and company in a prime Week 7 bounce-back spot against the Jets. Andy Dalton and company couldn't get anything going, and Zeke's mess-ups were particularly tough to watch. Kyler Murray and (!!!) Kenyan Drake put together big performances on the ground, although the Cardinals' passing game continued to struggle outside of DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk's lone respective chunk plays. Ian closes things out with thoughts on waiver wire targets like Boston Scott, D'Andre Swift, Jerick McKinnon, Tim Patrick, Darren Fells and much more.

Oct 20, 2020
Fantasy football takeaways and reactions from Week 6

Key discussion points include thoughts on Ryan Tannehill being a legit top-10 QB, Justin Jefferson balling the hell out, what's going on with the Ravens offense compared to last season, whether or not we should expect more from Matthew Stafford moving forward, and much more.

Week 6 game-by-game breakdown with Dwain McFarland
4716

Host Ian Hartitz and PFF/Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland break down every game in Week 6 with a focus on actionable fantasy football advise. The guys start things off marveling over Will Fuller before wondering if Terry McLaurin and Darius Slayton can overcome their respective atrocities under center. Ian explains why it's Jamison Crowder's world, we're all just living in it. Dwain sees value for both Robby Anderson and D.J. Moore moving forward. Discussion continues with a look at David Montgomery, James Robinson and Joe Mixon before Ian and Dwain debate what exactly to make of Chase Claypool moving forward. The pod finishes up with a look at the Monday night doubleheader featuring Cowboys-Cardinals and Broncos-Patriots.

Saints-Chargers fantasy football reactions and Week 6 waiver wire thoughts
1763

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Saints' 30-27 win over Chargers before giving his thoughts on the week's waiver wire targets. Justin Jackson emerged as the RB1 on the night, and Ian expects him to have the best chance of consistently providing fantasy value in this backfield. It's Mike Williams' world; we're all just living in it, and hopefully Keenan Allen (back) is okay. Ian wraps up the recap with thoughts on Taysom Hill's hilarious usage before providing waiver wire thoughts on: Matthew Stafford, Andy Dalton, Alexander Mattison, Chase Claypool and more.

Oct 13, 2020
Fantasy football takeaways and reactions from Week 5
3739

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 11 games from Sunday with a focus on the impact of injuries, new workload trends and top performers. The Panthers continued to get going through the air and Ian has an idea as to why the offense is inexplicably humming better without Christian McCaffrey. Credit is given to Derek Carr and the Raiders on their big win, while Ian also lauds the performance of Chase Claypool *and* Eagles WR Travis Fulgham. We might need to temper Lamar Jackson overall QB1 expectations while his rushing usage remains so low, but things look great for Deshaun Watson and company in the future. Ian finishes things off with looks at Cowboys-Giants and the Seahawks' thrilling Sunday night win over the Vikings.

Oct 12, 2020
Bears-Buccaneers takeaways and Week 5 injuries to watch
1699

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Bears' thrilling (okay, maybe not) Thursday night win over the Buccanneers. TB12 provided a number of meme-worthy moments, but fantasy football managers shouldn't worry too much about the future of the offense. Both Ronald Jones and David Montgomery are looking more and more like three-down backs, while Allen Robinson and Mike Evans remain locked in as alpha No. 1 WRs. Ian wraps up the podcast with a look at injuries around the league including: Julio Jones, Zack Moss, Kareem Hunt, Joe Mixon, Le'Veon Bell, A.J. Brown, Cam Akers and more.

Week 4 game-by-game breakdown with Dwain McFarland
5483
