Unique analysis

Drew is a unique way to communicate with the fantasy public! I started this podcast from when you started because of the legal analysis which help me deciding what I want to do for my exposures with some intrigue in auction leagues. I have now played in a few salary cap leagues and stay for the poker banter. Great listen even though episodes are so long. Good thing I listen to most podcast at 2x.
