NFL Week 9 – NFL Trade Takeaways, Mailbag, Daily Plays of the Week and Fantasy Football Awards Show

On the show, today:

The Flex! Week 9 Fantasy Football Mailbag & Midseason Awards Show.  We’ve got some thoughts about the recent surprising trades that occurred in the NFL this past week.  We’ve received plenty of Mailbag questions to get you ready for Week 9.  Chris and Jeff provide you with their Daily Value Plays of the Week.  And we’ve reached the midway point of the NFL season so we present to you the 2017 Fantasy Football Midseason Awards Show.  We’ll discuss our busts of 2017, positional MVP’s, Who’s going to make an impact in the second half after a mediocre first half, and which fantasy stud is heading towards a cliff in the second half.

The recent NFL News:

Fantasy Football:  November is here and that means we are inching closer towards the fantasy football playoffs.  It has, undoubtedly, been a very busy, very entertaining week for the NFL.  Miami Dolphins traded star running back, Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles for a 2018 4th-Round Draft Pick.  Carolina shipped Kelvin Benjamin up to Buffalo.  Jimmy Garoppolo moves from the Patriots to the 49ers.  Josh Gordon has been reinstated and the Ezekiel Elliott saga appears to be over as he will now serve his 6-game suspension.  We dissect the moves of the week and who we believe will lead the Cowboys backfield while Zeke is away.

Listen to Friday’s Week 9 Fantasy Preview Show to hear how the guys think this news impacts Week 9.

NFL Week 8 Fantasy Football Recap Show

 

On the show, today:

Fantasy Football:  We’ve got an extra-long, jam-packed show for you guys today.  Of course, we recap the weekend that was NFL Week 8.  And it’s never too early to discuss Waiver Wire Targets!  Chris and Jeff offer up their favorite group of Week 9 Waiver Wire Targets.  The Ezekiel Elliott suspension was announced (again) at the conclusion of this show.  As a result of the Zeke news, Rod Smith needs to be added in all leagues THIS WEEK!  In addition, Jimmy Garoppolo was traded from New England to San Francisco late last night.

Week 8 Fantasy Recap:

It was a rough weekend for fantasy quarterbacks.  TY Hilton was a huge disappointment.  Marlon Mack is pushing Frank Gore into a Senior Living Retirement Facility.  Most importantly, we saw the best game so far for 2017 between the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans.  The Seahawks and Texans just put on an absolutely amazing performance in Seattle on Sunday.  DeShaun Watson continues to impress football enthusiasts everywhere and continues to prove disbelievers wrong.  Russell Wilson has emerged as a top 5 fantasy quarterback.

Other takeaways from Week 8:

New England’s defense has improved dramatically over the past two weeks.  Matt Ryan and the Falcons continue to look out of rhythm.  Pittsburgh keeps rolling.  Despite not having a big name on the defense, the Bills are for real.   Jeff says the Bills will take a wild-card spot.

There are a lot of waiver wire targets this week.  We’ve got some of the top Wide Receiver targets for Week 9, as well as, top running backs.  And Jimmy G is a must add and needs to be added this week.  Listen to Friday’s Week 9 Fantasy Preview Show to hear how the guys think this move impacts the 49ers offense.

Also:

We have received some awesome mailbag questions for Week 9.  And of course, we’ll hit on those mailbag questions.  Thank you guys for continuing to submit your mailbag questions to the show.  We try to answer all mailbag questions sent into the show.    Also, we review our 5 Bold Predictions for Week 8.  This NFL season has been anything but predictable from week to week.  Chris provides some valuable insight on fantasy forecasting going forward.  The Legion of Boom is officially dead.  Funeral arrangements are underway.  The service will be held during the Week 9 Fantasy Preview show later this week.
