Welcome to 25 Yards Later, Sports Obsessive and Rumination Radio Network’s fantasy football podcast. We’re on the home stretch to the playoffs, with most fantasy leagues only having 2 more games in the regular season. Our hosts are feeling the late-season crunch too, and we’re here to help you win it all.
This week’s slate is headlined by a potentially spicy Bengals/Chargers game. We break down both teams in a game that we think could be a sneaky shootout. Then, we revisit what the Arizona Cardinals might look like with a (hopefully) healthy Kyler and Hopkins, and wonder what the Minnesota Vikings will look like minus Dalvin Cook and what is wrong with the Los Angeles Rams. Finally, we talk about the 32nd different team that we’ve previewed this year: the Houston Texans.
Can Joe Mixon continue his hot stream? Will Ja’Marr Chase break out of his slump? Are Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen, and Mike Williams good options against a Bengals defense that is tough against fantasy passing games? Could an increased emphasis on the pass in Minnesota revive KJ Osborn’s season? Can Alexander Mattison be trusted as a top-5 fantasy option against a hapless Lions defense? Can Rondale Moore or Zach Ertz repeat their gaudy target numbers from last week? Can we expect a resurgence in Odell Beckham’s play after his good game Sunday? Could Nick talk himself into playing Rex Burkhead if David Johnson sits out this week? Who even is Brevin Jordan? Find out on this week’s episode of 25 Yards Later!
