If you somehow survived an absolutely brutal Week 15… congrats!

You’re going to the finals, and The Fantasy Fullback Dive Podcast is going to pave your path to fantasy paydirt one final time. Beforehand, however, Sunday saw plenty of crucial Risers, Fallers, and especially Penny Stocks + Injuries that any championship contenders MUST know. Find out why Derrick Henry (5:23-8:57), Dalvin Cook (12:26-14:04), Chris Carson (14:53-16:00), and Marlon Mack (17:36-19:17) were not only heroes for Week 15, but are set to dominate for you one last time in Week 16 (and what are their values for 2019?!)

Why are all the Eagles falling… except one MUST play for next week (19:18-21:18)? Would you really bench Leonard Fournette (21:19-23:33) and your Rams’ passing game options (24:00-26:53) in Week 16?

Plus, after solid efforts from DaeSean Hamilton (30:49), Robert Foster (25:53-29:16), and Robby Anderson (29:50-31:01), who would The Wolf target first on the Waiver Wire? And who’s his top choice between new-featured backs Jamaal Williams (33:13-34:58) and Kalen Ballage (31:04-33:07)? All this, and so much more, somehow packed into under 40 minutes!

With fantasy titles on the line, you can’t afford to miss this pulverizing lead block.

Week 15, aka Fantasy’s Final Four. Win, and secure your shot for history and glory. Lose, and you stoop into fantasy depression. Of course, the Fantasy Fullback Dive is here to pave the path of least resistance, and help you find fantasy paydirt. First, we cover must-know injury notes, including Spencer Ware, Tyreek Hill, the Chargers RBs, James Conner, the Ravens QBs, Carson Wentz, and a loaded Rapid Fire. Where does Damien Williams slide into the Week 15 Rankings? Would Justin Jackson be in line for Redemption? Do they rank above Jaylen Samuels?

Plus, as always, The Wolf gives you a positional rundown of the players he is Higher, Lower, and willing to take a Hail Mary on. Why are Tom Brady, Dalvin Cook, Doug Martin, Dante Pettis, and Cameron Brate all on The Wolf’s Start ‘Em list? Is he crazy for being lower on Big Ben Roethlisberger, Sony Michel, and Alshon Jeffery? And would you ever be willing to take a Hail Mary on Kenneth Dixon, Ito Smith, DaeSean Hamilton, Ian Thomas, or… *GASP* Derek Carr?

Last, we tackle our most loaded mail bag ever. Here The Wolf’s takes and rankings of countless of players to help you set your own lineups. There’s no stronger lead block than The Fantasy Fullback Dive, so follow us right into your Championship Game.

The first week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs is done, and hopefully you’re still standing as some crazy fantasy dust settles.

If so, The Wolf and Truth are here on our Fantasy Fullback Dive to help you pick up the pieces with every meaningful takeaway from a crazy Week 14.

Waiver Wire, Injuries, and DST streams make up the most actionable items for the rest of the season, and our agenda is stockpiled with them. Find out which underowned WRs, RBs, + a TE and QB should be rostered down the stretch.

Plus, we break down an often overlooked but absolutely essential late season Waiver Wire Strategy that may just push your team to stardom. We also discuss Playoff Heroes like Amari Cooper & Dak Prescott, George Kittle, and Derrick Henry, and whether or not you can trust them yet again in tougher Week 15 matchups.

Last, we explain why Courtland Sutton should be cut, but Justin Jackson NEEDS to be held, after both come off brutal duds. If you’re moving on to the Semis (or want to mess with the owners who have), you MUST listen to our Week 14 Stock Watch.

The Fantasy Playoffs are here! Don’t enter the battlefield without following the pulverizing audio blocks of The Fantasy Fullback Dive… unless you like an early exit. There’s tons of crucial injury news you NEED to here to prepare, including:

-A shocking season-ender for Emmanuel Sanders

-The new-look Bengals without AJ Green

-A vacant RB hole in Kyle Shanahan’s invaluable zone blocking scheme (and potential RB1 set to explode here)

- Melvin Gordon and Kerryon Johnson’s current health, and why Justin Jackson and LeGarrette Blount are highly intriguing RB2s in their absence

- What DeSean Jackson’s extended absence means for Adam Humphries and Chris Godwin

- The impact a returning Mitch Trubisky would have on Nagy’s aerial circus

As always, we help you through tough lineup decisions with both a jam packed mail bag, and our usual Higher, Lower, and Hail Mary segment. Why does The Wolf have Matt Ryan, Justin Jackson, Adam Humphries, and Jaylen Samuels well above the experts? How come Cam Newton, Lamar Miller, Kenny Golladay, and Trey Burton all fall on The Wolf’s “lower” list? And is The Wolf really going back to the well with Josh Allen and the Ravens RBs as Hail Mary’s? Can Dante Pettis, Bruce Ellington, and Tyrell Williams truly swing games out of the FLEX?

We plow through all the above so you can find fantasy pay dirt, and land safely into your semis. So don’t miss out on a crucial episode of The Fantasy Fullback Dive during the best time of the year!

In easily our most rage and expletive filled show yet, The Wolf and Truth purge themselves of awful, playoff-costing fantasy football beats…. And then bring you all the Week 13 Risers, Fallers, and Waiver Wire Penny Stocks you MUST know before your fantasy playoffs. Before the usual rundown, we breakdown all the insane news surrounding Mike McCarthy and Kareem Hunt, and the fantasy implications that come with both. Then...

We dive into Tarik Cohen’s soaring value and record-setting Sunday, and discuss how high he belongs both on Rest of Season and 2019 Big Boards. We break down Philip Lindsay -- 2018’s leading canidate for Waiver Wire Pick Up of the Year -- and yet another massive Sunday.  We break down a brutal list of fallers (3 of who personally violated The Truth), including Aaron Jones, David Johnson, and two former QB1s who’ve become essentially unstartable. And for you Waiver Wire Hunters, we’ve got a loaded list of low-owned options who can bolster the squad for a playoff run, including hard-hitting takes on Justin Jackson, Dante Pettis, and the Ravens backfield (behind The Bus). Plus, Sunday saw a James Conner scare, as well as AJ Green and Greg Olsen’s seasons end. Needless to say, the fantasy implications are absolutely massive after a wild Week 13, and you won’t find a podcast that covers it better (or drops more f bombs) than the Fantasy Fullback Dive. Just like James Develin, come plow into the end zone for a season-winner here.
