Welcome to 25 Yards Later, Sports Obsessive and Rumination Radio Network’s fantasy football podcast. The fantasy playoffs are finally here, and while you hopefully got a bye, we’ve got all the latest news to get you ready for your matchups this weekend. And there is a TON of news (so much that we had to go back and add another segment!), between head coaches getting fired, the league’s heaviest COVID outbreak of the entire pandemic, and star players missing significant time with injury. There’s so much COVID uncertainty that we also include some tips to make sure you’re prepared for any scenario.
Then, we have six team previews: the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots (taking on each other), the Green Bay Packers (@Baltimore), the Philadelphia Eagles (vs. Washington), the Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. Tennessee), and the Miami Dolphins (@New York Jets).
What quarterbacks would we start Ben Roethlisberger over? Can Carson Wentz, Jonathan Taylor, and Michael Pittman break through against a tough Patriots defense? Can Mac Jones take advantage of a generous Colts pass defense? What should you do with the Packers backfield? Is it too late for players like Ray-Ray McCloud and James Washington to get on the path to WR4 status? What should we expect from the Dolphins backfield if anyone is able to clear the COVID protocols? Will there be any players left by the time we get to Sunday? Find out the answers to these questions and more on this week’s episode of the 25 Yards Later Fantasy Football Podcast!
