9/30/14, Navigating the Wire and Week 5 Matchups
It’s hard to believe we’re already 25% complete with the fantasy football season. After such a long wait to get started, the weeks are flying by. This week’s show featured some leftover craft beers from the weekend, including the Revolution Oktoberfest and the 80 Acre Hoppy Wheat beer from Boulevard Brewing Co. We started off the show going over some surprises from Week 4, including the revelation that is Jerick McKinnon and whether or not Martellus Bennett is the real deal.
We also resumed our degenerate ways by making not one, but two bets. The first bet is for beers for next week’s show – I picked the Bengals over the Patriots and am giving Dave 3.5 points (the Vegas line opened with -2.5 for the Pats – I’m so generous!). We are also betting on the production of Trent Richardson (Jason) vs Ahmad Bradshaw (Dave). The stakes will be a steak! This bet is only valid if everyone is healthy going in to the game.
Finally, we broke down the waiver pickups that you need this week and previewed week 5. We fielded questions from the peanut gallery, and if you want us to answer your lineup questions on air, just ask in the chat room or give us a call during the show.
