Fantasy Football Podcast Recommendations


Recommended Posts

I've always listened to music while working out, but I've been loving working out to fantasy football podcasts lately. Makes the workouts fly by insanely fast. Was looking for some more fantasy relevant podcasts similar to the Audible and the Red vs Blue. Anything with up to date news and fantasy football player or drafting debate I'm game for.

Haha cheap plug. Let me know the itunes info I'll keep an eye out. And thanks for the CBS one, I don't really like the "mainstream" podcasts but I'll check it out. Any others?

I know many people hate it, but I enjoy the ESPN Fantasy Focus podcast. Kellogg's Komments is OK too. I definitely agree they make workouts go faster, so I'm excited to hear other options here.

Pro Football Focus and Dynasty League Football are pretty decent.

Just caught DLF last week & its very promising. I like PFF but their audio is really poor but I like the content. Not sure what software & mic Cecil uses to run the audible but its light years ahead audibly of PFF.others....Fantasy Guru-When Cosell is on it is right up there with the audible as my favorite. I like Caplan as well but JH seems like he lost a few MPHs from his fastballBFD Dynasty is an ok listenRed Vs Blue-haven't listened in a year , 1 host was ok the other :eek: . Well the other , never mind.

Red vs Blue ?

I listened once on a road trip because either Cecil or Bloom was on and plugged it. It was two hours about personal stories, boxing and other off topic. Did I just catch the one bad show? I run out of podcasts during my commutes and workouts, would try again if it's actually about football.

My 2 cents.

Gold standard

The Audible

DLFootball (enjoy this more then some of the articles.)

ESPN: Football today

PFF Fantasy

Silver standard

CBSSports Fantasy Football

FFToolbox

Bronze Standard

2 Mugs Fantasy Football

BFD (which is interesting to hear what others think, sometimes disagree with it, but keeps the brain thinking on different angles.)

At the end of the day, they're all decent to listen to, but if I had limited time, I would listen to the "Gold Standard" podcasts.

I'm assuming DLF is geared more towards dynasty players, but is it still worth listening to if you're just a redraft player?

I think so. I'm almost at the point I've forgotten how to play redraft, but I think it's worth a try at least. (They cover news, trades, etc.)

To subscribe to SDC in iTunes, you have to dig up an SDC podcast article, then copy-and-paste a link they give you into iTunes to activate the subscription. Or something like that. It's inexplicably complicated; a side effect of some old Yahoo-Apple beef, I guess.

My main rotation of podcasts covers four gym trips per week and an hour of back-and-forth commuting 5x per week, so it's more than just Fantasy Football. But the FF ones I listen to most are (in no particular order):

The Audible (especially in season with waiver wire and recap shows)

ESPN Fantasy Focus (they try too hard to be funny sometimes, but they actually succeed occasionally; good also to know what the "fish" of your league -- as opposed to the "sharks" -- are thinking because it's more mainstream and not as in-depth)

2mugsFF (@RumfordJohnny and @RyFo18 on twitter -- they're New England guys but they don't show homer-tism too often; the tone is very casual, the kind of talk you'd hear in any sports bar - cursing and all)

Fantasy Football Index has a new podcast.

It is available on iTunes - search Fantasy Football Index in the store.

It's also available here: http://ffipodcast.libsyn.com

Your feedback, comments, and questions are welcome.

Love Fantasy Football Index as a magazine. Likely one of the few print magazines, I still buy.

Great content here, great format, found one of the speakers a little louder then the other, to nitpick a little, but very happy to have this podcast, and look forward to future episodes.

Not a nitpick at all but it's a legit feedback and greatly appreciated. You're right, one of the tracks came out in stereo and the other in mono causing the difference. It'll be fixed in future episodes.

Again, thanks for listening and taking them time to critique.

Ryan is not a New Engalnd guy. He is a Chiefs fan. ESPN FF no thanks.

i skimmed through this, but Fantasy Football Weekly (KFAN radio from Minnesota - on itunes) is excellent - it's usually available by 1pm CDT on Saturday. I usually wait and listen to it on Sunday morning in lieu of watching the mediocre Sunday morning pregame shows.

At the top of the hour here in a few minutes from midnight-1 am, the NFL Network is showing something called "NFL Fantasy Live: Draft Special" ... I have no idea who is hosting it or how good it will be, so don't shoot the messenger if it sucks.

Not shooting you, as I was already watching the show prior, but it was awful. I had to shut it off after about 10 minutes. I understand they are playing to a much less experienced audience when it comes to fantasy - or at least I hope they are - but it was brutal. How they come up with their panel is beyond me but when you have Michael Fabiano as your "expert" it doesn't instill confidence in the end product. Though I would put it one step above the annual ESPN fantasy draft show.

One last bump, adding 1. FantasyGuru, 2. Football Sickness.

Not inspired to try whatever convoluted steps are required for ShutDown corner.

1. Paraphrasing from the last Fantasyguru podcast.

host: "Hey Greg, it's the end of pre-season week 2, how's it going?"

Greg: "I'm ready to make definitive, conclusive statements on every single player in the NFL"

Total :lmao: at the sarcasm, and definitely enjoyed hearing his observations. Appreciate hearing as close to an actual scout's opinion in Greg's and ESPN's Williamson.

2. Football sickness is good, give some college insights which is good and host Burns, I believe, has an absolute smooth radio voice. Guessing that's his day job or should be?

I may need to pick and choose and reduce what I listen to on a weekly basis... hmmm.

Gold standard

both of these are excellent podcasts.
fantasyguru is just that guy on sirius fantasy that says everything is 'gurific', right?sirius fantasy is pretty decent, but pretty much the usual -- not a ton of tremendous insight.
