Welcome to 25 Yards Later, Sports Obsessive and Rumination Radio Network’s fantasy football podcast! For the first time this year, byes are significantly affecting fantasy rosters, and this week might be the most significant impacted week of the season with the Bills, Cowboys, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers, (and I guess we’ll include the Jaguars) all on byes.
The guys wanted to try something new this week, so instead of the normal game previews, we’re going to talk about 6 individual teams that we feel have interesting fantasy storylines, matchups, and players. This week, we chose the Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts, Seattle Seahawks, and Allijah’s Cincinnati Bengals. Plus, the debut of a new game: a play on the classic Pokemon segment we’re calling “Who’s That Journey-mon!” Inspired by Nick’s propensity to bring up obscure, barely fantasy-relevant deep league options, Nick quizzes Allijah on obscure/journeyman players that are rostered in a deep redraft league that he plays in.
As always, we have a lot of questions on our minds. Who are the winners of the Zach Ertz trade? Will Allijah know who Kylin Hill is, and why is Kylin Hill on a redraft roster? How good has Ja’Marr Chase been? What obscure player does Nick have his eye on this week? Are there any Rams that we wouldn’t start against the Lions? What do we do with the 49ers backfield and the Colts’ wide receivers? Why is Allijah so excited to watch Geno vs. Jameis on MNF? Find out the answers to these questions and more on this week’s episode of the 25 Yards Later Fantasy Football Podcast!
