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.

Almost went there but stopped short of talking about TE Premium leagues. Would be great to hear how that elevated (1.5) ppr changes the thought process draftwise.

Would be awesome to get your take on footballguys contests. One player from each team thru the SB. TE premium.

if you don't know anything about jj, he is one of the best um the business. he takes more deep dives into the statsv than any other analyst that i am aware of and his record of success exceeds most in the business. if you want a leg up on your league, listen to this podcast.

You're comparing fantasy football points to actually being a good football player and helpful to a team. You may not realize it but in the first few minutes that's all you're doing. The film guys who've been doing it forever don't need empathy because they're not looking for specific fantasy football production which is all anyone's models are based off of.
