Welcome to 25 Yards Later, SportsObsessive’s fantasy football podcast! It’s Week 15 in the NFL and in most leagues it’s the fantasy semifinals, so the stakes are high. Whether you’re only a week from the championship or in the consolation round looking to defend your honor, we’ve got you covered by breaking down some of the premier matchups in the league: Chiefs (12-1) @ Saints (10-3), Texans (4-9) @ Colts (9-4), Buccaneers (8-5) @ Falcons (4-9), and Eagles (4-8-1) @ Cardinals (7-6). If you’ve made it all the way to the fantasy semifinals, you owe it to yourself to get as much information as you can, and our deep dives are here to help.
Once again, we have a lot of questions on our minds. Is there anyone you can’t start in Chiefs/Saints? How good have T.Y. Hilton and Jonathan Taylor been? How important was Will Fuller to the Texans? Who should you keep your eye on in all of these crowded receiver corps? Are we buying Miles Sanders after his big game last week, and what does Sanders’ success against the Saints mean for Clyde Edwards-Helaire? Is Nick still mad at Kenyan Drake after another solid game? Did Derrick Henry lead the 2-minute drill of the year? And which under-the-radar tight ends are worth a look at fantasy football’s worst position?
Plus, Nick has a game for Allijah called “Jalen Hurts or.” Find out which top-5 QB Allijah had to think twice about starting over Philadelphia’s surprising rookie. And as always, the Touchback Player of the Week, honoring the player (or players) with the most kickoffs that made their opponents start their next drive 25 yards later, accompanied by the debut of our newest song!
