Pat Kerrane (@PatKerrane) is joined by (@dpbrugler) of the Athletic and author of The Beast draft guide to discuss some of 2022's most interesting prospect evaluations. Dane breaks down the quarterback class, which lacks consensus both within the draft community and inside the league.

John Daigle, Pat Daugherty and Denny Carter join Matt Stroup to break down the NFC and AFC title games, including Matt LaFleur's head-scratching decision to kick a late field goal, and what's next for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers after the devastating loss. We also take an early look at what to expect from a Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady Super Bowl matchup, react to the Lions' hiring of Dan Campbell, and look at the mess that's unfolding in Houston with franchise QB Deshaun Watson potentially on his way to the Jets.

Conference Championship Previews 2021
John Daigle, Pat Daugherty and Hayden Winks join Matt Stroup to look ahead to this weekend's NFC and AFC title games, starting with Tom Brady and the Bucs going to Lambeau to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. We discuss why this game will likely be different from Green Bay's 38-10 loss to Tampa in October, why there's no stopping Davante Adams, and what makes the Green Bay backfield a challenge for DFS purposes. Meanwhile, with questions surrounding Patrick Mahomes (concussion, toe) ahead of the AFC title game, we consider whether we're headed for a Mahomes-Josh Allen shootout despite some recent turbulence for both offenses.

Divisional Playoff Round Reaction 2021
Pat Daugherty and Denny Carter join Matt Stroup to recap all the games from the NFL Divisional Round over the weekend, with uncertainty around Jared Goff's future with the Rams, and the Saints likely beginning the post-Drew Brees era (and potentially the start full-time of the Taysom Hill experience). We also discuss what to expect from Josh Allen and the Bills after a relatively quiet weekend, the lingering injury concern for Patrick Mahomes and where Lamar Jackson and the Ravens go from here.

Wild Card Weekend Reaction: Bills Survive, Browns Stun Steelers
John Daigle, Pat Daugherty and Denny Carter join Matt Stroup to review all six games from NFL Wild Card Weekend, including Josh Allen's Bills narrowly getting past the Colts and Philip Rivers, who may or may not have played his last game. Plus, how the Ravens shut down Derrick Henry, and some highly questionable decisions by Mike Vrabel and Mike Tomlin — whose Steelers were stunned by Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb and the Browns on Sunday night. We break down some of the key moments from all six games, and what's next for the eliminated teams.

Plus, the challenge facing star running backs Derrick Henry, Nick Chubb and Jonathan Taylor, and difficult circumstances for the Browns in their first postseason since 2002, as they face Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers without head coach Kevin Stefanski.

Lessons Learned From the 2020 Season
Matt Stroup is joined by John Daigle, Pat Daugherty and Denny Carter to discuss some key fantasy lessons we learned amid the chaos of the 2020 season. We discuss the death of the late-round QB as a viable fantasy strategy, and why quarterbacks who score points with their legs (Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray, Josh Allen and others) have become so crucial to fantasy success at the position. Plus, the factors that make Travis Kelce such an absurd outlier, what we missed in our evaluation of star rookies Justin Herbert and Justin Jefferson, and what we can learn from the absurd late-season production of David Montgomery.
