The dummies complaining about the format or 'needing a co-host' should go listen to the hacks over at fantasyJoes or that hack Matthew Berry and his ESPN dopes. This show delivers info and keeps it moving. No B-S'ing around.

Needs a co-host. Badly.

The content is great. However, the delivery is not so great. He's clearly reading and it isn't great to listen to. Sounds very unnatural.

Description

Fantasy football doesn't have to feel so luck-driven. The award-winning Late-Round Fantasy Football Podcast is a fantasy football show that helps you win through bite-sized, analytically-driven episodes. Instead of just drafting from a list of players and crossing your fingers with the hopes that those players produce, host JJ Zachariason provides a process to help you find breakout candidates, sleepers, busts and more. The approach is logical. It's strategic. And it wins.
