The Wolf and the Truth journey further into The Wolf's way too early (or not early enough) fantasy football big board. (#21-#48)
George Bremer, CNHI Sports Indiana executive editor, Indianapolis Colts beat writer and sports editor for The Herald Bulletin in Anderson, Indiana joins the Roto Street Journal guys to talk about all the timely Colts-related NFL news.
Josh McDaniels, Frank Reich, Andrew Luck, TY Hilton, Donte Moncrief, The Ageless Frank Gore and so much more on this information packed episode
The Wolf and The Truth tackle the top of the Wolf's way too early (or not early enough) big board.
The Fantasy Fullback Dive plows into Season 3 like an absolute sledgehammer, welcoming on the Godfather of Oregon Football: Charles Fischer.
A fantasy sheep may ask, "Why would you invite a college analyst to the show, even if a mastermind?"
But a true wolf knows that exact answer: Mark Helfrich.
The former Oregon HC has joined Matt Nagy as the Bears Offensive Coordinator, forming one of the most intriguing coaching duos of 2018. Understanding just how much Helfrich brings to the table is crucial.
Though Nagy will be calling plays, Helfrich and his bright, innovative mind weren't brought in without reason. The college coach is regarded as a QB Guru -- one Marcus Mariota attributes everything to (according to Fischer). The new OC will undoubtedly be bringing plenty of Spread and Zone Concepts into Nagy's West Coast attack.
Thus, we bring in Fischer, who might know more about Helfrich and the Oregon Scheme than anyone who hasn't coached there (and maybe them too).
In arguably our most nitty gritty, "X's and O's" Interview of all time, Fischer digs in deep to every facet of Helfrich's attack. In the process, Fischer lays down the foundation, and The Wolf and Truth bring the fantasy hammer.
While we'd have preferred moving on, The Wolf and Truth had no choice but to stay in New England after all this week's wild news: Bill Belichick / Malcolm Butler, Josh McDaniels, Rob Gronkowski... really, the entire team have all been under the microscope. So we've brought in the big guns to bring some clarity.
In our Season 3 premiere, we're absolutely thrilled to welcome on WEEI's Lead Patriots Beat Writer Ryan Hannable to the show, and pepper him with the burning questions.
Hannable gives us all the insider scoops he's scoured from the normally tight-lipped Patriots. From Butler's benching to McDaniel's return to Gronk's retirement and every other personnel, injury, and free agency question in-between, we get leave no New England stone unturned.
The Truth tries to contain his smugness and The Wolf just tries to keep it together as the guys debrief Super Bowl 52, a thrilling 41-33 victory for the Eagles over the Patriots.
Super Bowl 52 is nearly upon us, which means us degenerate gamblers care about one thing: Prop Bets. Though the Coin Flip may be an infamous wager, many Props are far more scientific than a 50/50 shot. Trust that no one will dive in deeper than your FFBD boys, who break down all the stats; from Fourth Quarter outputs, to Pink's Hair Trends, to Belichick's shirt history, you'll be set to clean up serious $$ on some of the most entertaining bets of the year. RSJ mainstays and gambling gurus CJay, JimboSlice, and, for the first time ever, Keegs all make guest appearances to share their insight on a slew of bets. What huge odds could clean up big? What props do we consider locks to hammer big time? Just how many times will Tom Brady's age or Donald Trump be mentioned?

The Coaching Carousel has begun spinning, and new Bears OC Matt Nagy is by far the most important to breakdown so far. To do so, we welcome Chiefs Insider Chris Clark (@ChrisClarkNFL) of the Locked on Chiefs Podcast to analyze all he knows on Nagy and how he might utilize talents on the Bears. How could Mitch Trubisky fit into this "Vertical West Coast" scheme? How might Nagy utilize his exciting tandem of Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen? What Bears pass catchers should be on fantasy radars? Before Chris join us, The Wolf and Truth had to dive deep into arguably the wildest weekend of Divisional Round football we've ever seen, and make our predictions for the Super Bowl.
