Fantasy Football Podcast: Week 9

Tony-Romo-102914-GETTY-FTR

If you like your fantasy football analysis occasionally sprinkled in between chatter about Bud Light commercials, Charlotte's sports scene, Bigfoot ranches, yiddish words, and “the second coming of Jesus Christo, then you've come to the right place, my friend.

Yes, this week's Sporting News Fantasy Football Podcast (download or subscribe on iTunes) gets a little verkakte, but it's still full of valuable insight for any fantasy owner.

Segments include:

Week 9 Rankings

We look at Fantasy Source's rankings and identify one guy at each position who we think is too high or too low. How do you feel this week about Nick Foles (ehh), Mark Ingram (mmm-hmm), Vincent Jackson (grr), and Jordan Reed (hmm)?

Start/Sits

QB: Ben Roethlisberger vs. Carson Palmer (Was last week a fluke for Roethlisberger?)

RB: Justin Forsett vs. Frank Gore (This is as fun to debate as it looks on paper.)

RB: Andre Williams vs. Jonathan Stewart (This is even more fun to debate.)

WR: Brandon LaFell vs. Mohamed Sanu (Long-term and short-term outlooks for both of these budding halfway-decent players.)

WR: Michael Crabtree vs. Cordarrelle Patterson (Both of these guys are selling something – are you buying?)

TE: Jason Witten vs. Heath Miller (Laugh in disgust now – plenty of people will be starting these guys this week.)

Expert Picks

We have a pair of sleeper WRs and a sleeper RB, plus a bonus stumbler RB. Lots of talk about the present and future of the Browns' passing game, Giants' passing game and Patriots' running game.

F(orget) That Guy

You know, you hate 'em – it's the guys who boned you over in some way last week. Last week's podcast star, Bryce Brown, makes his return in a much more unflattering light, and Doug Martin makes perhaps his final appearance of the season (R.I.P. Doug Fartin').

Fortune Telling

We look into the future and predict what we'll be bitching about come Monday morning. Tony Romo – this is your life!
