Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Rams' 24-10 victory over the Bears and also gives his thoughts on some of the week's top waiver wire options. Nick Foles couldn't quite hook up with Darnell Mooney or Javon Wims on potential bombs, and A-Rob only had four targets. "Luckily" David Montgomery continued to show a slightly enhanced fantasy floor with 19 touches for 69-scoreless yards. Jared Goff and company didn't have the toughest evening at the office, but credit regardless to Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett for finding the end zone. Darrell Henderson continues to work as the offense's lead back, although Malcolm Brown isn't going anywhere. Ian finishes things up with thoughts on waiver wire options including: Chase Edmonds, Rashard Higgins, Nelson Agholor, Richard Rodgers, and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable fantasy football takeaways. Ian starts things off with injury notes on Kenyan Drake, Odell Beckham, Dionate Johnson, Jeff Wilson and more before getting to the matchups. Both Baker Mayfield and Joe Burrow put up massive numbers, but Kareem Hunt's huge snap share was a low-key major takeaway. Ian tips his hat to A.J. Brown putting forward another beastly performance before noting that both D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson have earned every-week WR2 (at-worst) treatment moving forward. Discussion continues with a look at Antonio Gibson's big day, just how absurd Davante Adams' workload has been, as well Tom Brady's very-much-alive arm. Ian finishes things off with thoughts on the Cardinals' thrilling Sunday night victory over the Seahawks.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Eagles' Thursday night comeback victory over the Giants. Carson Wentz continues to supply fantasy-friendly goodness thanks to his newfound rushing upside. Boston Scott will remain a RB2 as long as Miles Sanders is sidelined, and we should tentatively expect Travis Fulgham to continue seeing plenty of action even once Alshon Jeffery returns. Daniel Jones is also looking like a dual-threat talent these days, although the Giants' banged-up backfield is now further injured with Devonta Freeman (ankle) hurt. Kudos are given to Sterling Shepard before Ian wonders why Evan Engram doesn't have a more downfield-oriented role. Injury thoughts include notes on: DeAndre Hopkins, Joe Mixon, Noah Fant, Michael Thomas, A.J. Brown and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by former all-pro and Super Bowl winning cornerback Aqib Talib to answer Week 7’s top wide receiver/cornerback matchup questions. Are the Rams’ CBs the real deal? (1:52). Can the 49ers’ passing attack beat the Pats’ secondary? (5:09). Will Carlton Davis and Jamel Dean lock up the Raiders? (8:25). Why don’t outside corners travel to the slot? (11:18). Can Arizona keep up with the Seahawks’ WRs? (13:38). Will Michael Thomas have his way in Carolina? (16:27). Will Jaire Alexander cement himself as a top-5 CB? (18:20). Can the Broncos hang with the Chiefs? (21:03).
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF regular Andrew Erickson to break down every game from the Week 7 slate. The guys are in on Boston Scott as a fantasy RB2 over the next two weeks, but things are a bit less optimistic for anyone involved in the Giants offense at the moment. Expect both Josh Allen and Kareem Hunt to bounce back this week, while Breshad Perriman could be a sneaky DFS punt-play option. The Washington Football Team is set up well against the Cowboys defense because, like, who isn't. Further discussion includes thoughts on: CEH and Le'Veon Bell situation, if Jaguars-Chargers can be a sneaky shootout, what to make of Jimmy G's reluctance to throw downfield, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chiefs' victory over the Bills as well as the Cardinals' demolition over the Cowboys before getting in some waiver wire recommendations. Patrick Mahomes was excellent whenever asked to do pretty much anything, but Clyde Edwards-Helaire stole the show. RIP Mecole Hardman szn, but it shouldn't be too much longer that we see Tyreek Hill go without a massive performance. Better days should be ahead for Josh Allen and company in a prime Week 7 bounce-back spot against the Jets. Andy Dalton and company couldn't get anything going, and Zeke's mess-ups were particularly tough to watch. Kyler Murray and (!!!) Kenyan Drake put together big performances on the ground, although the Cardinals' passing game continued to struggle outside of DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk's lone respective chunk plays. Ian closes things out with thoughts on waiver wire targets like Boston Scott, D'Andre Swift, Jerick McKinnon, Tim Patrick, Darren Fells and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday! Ian starts things off by breaking down the impact of injuries to the likes of Raheem Mostert, Miles Sanders and Joe Mixon among others. The podcast continues with game previews consisting of advanced PFF metrics, snap rates and Ian's personal obversations after grinding out every game from Sunday. Key discussion points include thoughts on Ryan Tannehill being a legit top-10 QB, Justin Jefferson balling the hell out, what's going on with the Ravens offense compared to last season, whether or not we should expect more from Matthew Stafford moving forward, and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF software engineer and senior analyst Nathan Jahnke to break down the top storylines entering Week 6 as well as some buy or sell for specific position groups utilizing PFF’s strength of schedule tool (0:20). How will the Cowboys’ offense look with Andy Dalton (1:33). Expectations for Alexander Mattison with Cook injured (3:45). Temper expectations for Joe Mixon (5:45).

Ian explains why it's Jamison Crowder's world, we're all just living in it. Dwain sees value for both Robby Anderson and D.J. Moore moving forward. Discussion continues with a look at David Montgomery, James Robinson and Joe Mixon before Ian and Dwain debate what exactly to make of Chase Claypool moving forward. The pod finishes up with a look at the Monday night doubleheader featuring Cowboys-Cardinals and Broncos-Patriots.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Saints' 30-27 win over Chargers before giving his thoughts on the week's waiver wire targets. Justin Jackson emerged as the RB1 on the night, and Ian expects him to have the best chance of consistently providing fantasy value in this backfield. It's Mike Williams' world; we're all just living in it, and hopefully Keenan Allen (back) is okay. Ian wraps up the recap with thoughts on Taysom Hill's hilarious usage before providing waiver wire thoughts on: Matthew Stafford, Andy Dalton, Alexander Mattison, Chase Claypool and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 11 games from Sunday with a focus on the impact of injuries, new workload trends and top performers. The Panthers continued to get going through the air and Ian has an idea as to why the offense is inexplicably humming better without Christian McCaffrey. Credit is given to Derek Carr and the Raiders on their big win, while Ian also lauds the performance of Chase Claypool *and* Eagles WR Travis Fulgham. We might need to temper Lamar Jackson overall QB1 expectations while his rushing usage remains so low, but things look great for Deshaun Watson and company in the future. Ian finishes things off with looks at Cowboys-Giants and the Seahawks' thrilling Sunday night win over the Vikings.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Bears' thrilling (okay, maybe not) Thursday night win over the Buccanneers. TB12 provided a number of meme-worthy moments, but fantasy football managers shouldn't worry too much about the future of the offense. Both Ronald Jones and David Montgomery are looking more and more like three-down backs, while Allen Robinson and Mike Evans remain locked in as alpha No. 1 WRs. Ian wraps up the podcast with a look at injuries around the league including: Julio Jones, Zack Moss, Kareem Hunt, Joe Mixon, Le'Veon Bell, A.J. Brown, Cam Akers and more.

Ian and Sean finish things off with their favorite DFS picks of the week including: Teddy Bridgewater, David Johnson, Eric Ebron, Marquise Brown and more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by fellow PFF analyst Andrew Erickson to break down all 15 games from the Week 5 slate. Ian starts things off by going over the laundry list of injuries impacting the Buccaneers offense, while Andrew points out the future direction of both the Ravens and Falcons backfields. Ian shines some light on Devin Singletary's fantastic start to the season before imploring fantasy football managers to trust Josh Jacobs despite this week's projected negative game script. The guys agree that Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods don't possess the same sort of ceiling inside of the Rams' new-look run-first offense. Ian loses his composure when discussing D'Ernest Johnson as a waiver wire target. Andrew and Ian finish things off with discussion on various player including Michael Gallup, Damien Harris, Jonathan Taylor, Greg Olsen, Latavius Murray and much more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chiefs' win over the Patriots as well as the Packers' beatdown over the Falcons before providing some updates on injuries and key waiver wire notes. Patrick Mahomes' underwhelming performance didn't stop Tyreek Hill from having a solid game, although the same can't be said for the influence that Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham had on their pass-catchers. Aaron Rodgers' pissed-off victory tour continued in a big way, but unfortunately Matt Ryan and company couldn't even keep things close. Injury updates cover the likes of Nick Chubb, Austin Ekeler, Mike Evans and Christian McCaffrey. Waiver wire thoughts on: D'Ernest Johnson, Justin Jackson, Tim Patrick, Mo Alie-Cox and more.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down all 12 games from Sunday with a focus on providing actionable fantasy-football takeaways from what took place. The Cowboys-Browns' matchup sure produced a lot of offensive firepower, but could it be time to consider selling high on OBJ? What happened to Darrell Henderszn? Ian breaks down what went wrong with Kenyan Drake and the Cardinals, what went right with the Vikings' suddenly-leathal offense, and how we should approach the Colts and Bears backfields moving forward. Includes additional thoughts on what to make of the Austin Ekeler and Nick Chubb injuries.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Broncos' surprisingly-entertaining win over the Jets. Melvin Gordon dominated snaps and his game-clinching TD sent fantasy managers home happy. Both QBs had their share of mishaps, although at least they managed to enable Tim Patrick and Jamison Crowder to solid performances. Ian finishes the show with injury updates around the league on players including: Allen Lazard, Kareem Hunt, Odell Beckham, Calvin Ridley, Chris Godwin, Miles Sanders and more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by Action Network and FantasyLabs senior analyst Chris Raybon. The guys start things off with a round of start/sit questions which features some Josh Allen love, optimism for Deshaun Watson moving forward, and questions surrounding whether or not Jared Goff still has big-time boom ability. Things continue with a look at waiver-wire phenoms Mike Davis and Darrell Henderson before Chris points out the potential for DeVante Parker to have a boom week. Ian's all in on OBJ against the Cowboys' swiss-cheese secondary, and Chris talks up Noah Fant ahead of Thursday night's likely classic. The podcast concludes with top DFS picks featuring thoughts on Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Russell Wilson, T.J. Hockenson, and more.
Host Ian Hartitz is joined by PFF and Establish The Run analyst Dwain McFarland to break down all 16 Week 4 contests. Baker Mayfield and the Browns haven't been throwing the ball much in recent weeks, but the Cowboys might just present the sort of porous defense and high-octane offense to enable OBJ and Jarvis Landry to big games. T.J. Hockenson szn? Dwain sure thinks so, and he's got #numbers to back it up. Both Ian and Dwain agree that Justin Jefferson should be locked in as the priority Week 4 waiver climb, but Tee Higgins shouldn't be too far behind. The guys give James Robinson some love without freaking out too much, and ultimately finish things off with a look at Eagles-49ers and Falcons-Packers.
Host Ian Hartitz breaks down the Chiefs' 34-20 win over the Ravens. Lamar Jackson's evening didn't go quite as planned, although drops and a few missed opportunities to Marquise Brown played a large role. Patrick Mahomes was the star of the evening, but one of his receiver's production might not be all that sustainable. Ian finishes things off with potential waiver wire additions such as: Justin Jefferson, Rex Burkhead, Tee Higgins, Allen Lazard, Brandon Aiyuk and more.
