Best Fantasy Football Coverage

Best pod there is. Must listen every day. From Nando to Beller to Ciely to Funston to Brandon Marianne Lee you are never lacking incredible insight!

Subscriber

New episodes aren’t put on the app that subscribers pay for anymore. The Athletic has completely fallen off a cliff.

Midwood NY ,

Is this a football show or The Oscars review board

I don’t know how you start a FANTASY FOOTBALL PODCAST week 1 of all weeks, Spending 10 min talking about movies. I stopped listening after that and won’t be listening again.
