Sponsored by the Fan Controlled Football League

Host Greg Smith (@gregsauce) welcomes numberFire's JJ Zachariason (@LateRoundQB) for the show's nicest episode to date. They begin this pre-combine conversation with a discussion of Kirk Cousins' fantasy ceiling, relative to where he lands in free agency. Next, JJ talks about his favorite prospects in this year's rookie class, as well as some he's less bullish on. The episode wraps up with some forced optimism followed by more judicious realism for A.J. McCarron's outlook in free agency, plus a quick check-in on a couple other interesting situations around the NFL.

068 - 2018 Offseason Kickoff with Sal Stefanile

March 2, 2018

Episode 68: 2018 Offseason Kickoff with Sal Stefanile

Host Greg Smith (@gregsauce) welcomes TwoQBs.com co-founder Salvatore Stefanile (@2QBFFB) back to the show to get the podcast fired up for the 2018 offseason. They spend the first portion of the show discussing Sal's decision to not play fantasy football last year, and where he stands today. Full disclosure, the conversation steers away from football to real-life issues for a time. Around the 12-minute mark, the focus comes back to fantasy with an examination of the NFL's most quarterback-needy teams, including Minnesota, Denver, Arizona, Cleveland, and Buffalo. Your hosts discuss how free agent and rookie passers might fit into those teams plans, as well as more speculative destinations like the Dolphins, Jaguars, Giants, Ravens, and Bengals. From Case Keenum to Joel Stave, and Kirk Cousins to Geno Smith, Greg and Sal lay out all sorts of scenarios that could shake up the two-quarterback fantasy landscape.
