That’s where the astutely researched, undeniably bold, and unfathomably genius opinions of our very-own Wolf and Truth come in. Gritty. Dirty. Always pushing the pile. Gain that crucial yard with the Fantasy Fullback Dive.

What rookies are our favorites to make an impact on the fantasy field this season?  What exactly does Julio Jones have that the Wolf doesn’t have?  Can Simply Shamus possibly get us excited when 3 of his 4 Football Fantasies are about Miami Dolphins?  Along those lines, how much exactly do we really know about dolphin sex?  These questions and more will be answered on Episode 7 of the Fantasy Fullback Dive, brought to you by the Roto Street Journal.

What players’ stocks have gone up the most since the draft and who took it on the chin the worst?  How much crack did the members of the Chicago Bears’ front office smoke before coming up with their draft strategy?  Can Shamus possibly top last week’s reading of Football Fantasies?  Will the Wolf end up being Joe Namath drunk the entire time he’s in Vegas?  All this and so much more on Episode 6 of the Fantasy Fullback Dive!

After a lull in free agency, this week featured a flurry of RB moves. From Adrian Peterson landing with the Saints, to Marshawn Lynch with the Raiders, and Mike Gillislee's signing with the Patriots, the running back position is vastly different. As such, we release our-own "Fantasy Stock Formula" to break down every relevant angle and determining the true fantasy value of each back (all beginning at 33:27).  
 
Before this, we catch up after a week off, which, of course, leads to  discussions of The Wolf being approached by lesser TV dating shows (2:15) and The Truth (as resident, tech-dumb dad) complaining about his auto-correcting smartphone (9:11). We are then thrilled to welcome our first Football Fantasy guest reader, our own Shamus (10:48). After his brilliant readings, we discuss the importance of news on Spencer Ware, Ty Montgomery, Derek Carr, and Terrelle Pryor.  Keep ahead all offseason and listen now!

Who's really going to be the top dog at WR for the Redskins this season between Crowder and Pryor?  What can we really expect from Jordan Reed or the Washington backfield?  Grant Paulsen from 106.7 The Fan and Fox 5 DC has some bold predictions about these things and more.  But first...

The Truth briefly takes the Wolf down memory lane to 1983 when Michael Jackson’s Thriller LP was everywhere and Velcro shoes were brand new and all the rage.  Football Fantasies are back and sexier than ever, and the guys argue about each other’s obsessions with David Johnson and Jamaal Charles.  We are thrilled to welcome Grant Paulsen from 106.7 The Fan and Fox 5 DC for a great interview.  And finally, the Wolf gives us his winners and losers at the WR position after the first wave of free agency. 

TIME STAMPS

The Truth and the Wolf take a trip back in time to the mid 80s to discuss Velcro shoes, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and single barred, useless facemasks (1:50)

Football Fantasies kicks off (4:30) and the fellas talk about Eli Manning’s thoughts on Brandon Marshall (5:30), David Johnson getting 30 carries a game (10:08), and Demaryius Thomas “working on his hips” (16:32).

Interview with 106.7 The Fan and Fox 5 in DC’s Grant Paulsen (21:40).  They talk about his expectations for Terrelle Pryor, Jamison Crowder, and Jordan Reed, as well as if he expects a move to be made in the Washington backfield.

Winners and Losers at the wide receiver position (35:10).

Apr 12, 2017

In this episode, the Truth and the Wolf discuss Tony Romo's retirement (5:28) and the impact it could have on teams like the Broncos and the Texans (10:33).

We dive into Football Fantasies on Marshawn Lynch potentially coming out of retirement (14:10) which leads to the Truth's favorite hypothetical scenario for the Wolf (16:20).  The Fantasies continue with Christian McCaffrey possibly landing in New Orleans (20:00) and then a quick talk on Leonard Fournette going to... The Browns (23:23)?!

The guys discuss the value holes that need filling around the league at QB (27:24), RB (29:15), and WR (35:40).  The Truth asks the Wolf if he's going to be high on Jacksonville and Cleveland's fantasy productions this season (41:42).

Finally, we welcome CBS's senior draft analyst Dane Brugler to the show (44:40) and get his thoughts on everything from what he thinks of some of the top RBs and WRs in the draft to whether he'd rather let Marshawn Lynch run him over full speed or become a die hard Red Sox fan.

After going through a major revamp, the Roto Street Journal is thrilled to debut our newest creation: the Fantasy Fullback Dive.  The Truth and Wolf are back with a clear focus on what you crave most: football.  With an in-depth interview diving us deep into the Saints beat scene, a breakdown of the fantasy free agency fallout on Quarterbacks, and some important news surrounding big name talents like David Johnson, Jordan Reed, and, everyone’s favorite Rex Burkhead, Episode One is truly can’t miss stuff for the fantasy football addict.

A bromantic reunion of our two hosts leads into a discussion of the podcast rebrand -- why Fullback Dive? What should you all expect moving forward?  We then turn our attention to the “Football Fantasies,” which inevitably spurns an off-tangent rant on Viagra single packs (8:42) to lead into some news blurbs that made us tingle (9:56).  From here, we welcome on Nick Underhill, the New Orleans Advocate’s lead Saint beats guy, for a breakdown of one of fantasy’s juggernaut offenses (22:58). What should we expect from Michael Thomas with Brandin Cooks now gone? And what will Cooks bring to New England? Will this defense ever improve, and what do we expect out of the backfield?  Finally, we wrap off this jam-packed debut discussing The Wolf’s free agent winners and losers at the quarterback position (39:43). Who gained the most (re: Tom Brady) while who’s tumbling down the rankings? Find out all this and more, and be sure to subscribe and rate us (5 stars) on iTunes and Stitcher!
