May 8, 2017

Episode 39:  The 2017 NFL Draft Analysis Experience

Hosted by Greg Smith (@gregsauce).

Greg is rejoined by Anthony Amico (@amicsta) to recap the 2017 NFL Draft from a 2QB and Superflex fantasy perspective.  They compare landing spots for DeShaun Watson and Pat Mahomes, untangle the mess around Chicago drafting Mitchell Trubisky, and discuss which veteran quarterbacks should receive the most help from incoming rookies.  They also revisit Anthony's top tier of rookies now that the draft is over, try to sort out the potential overlap between Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel, then cover a bunch of backs and receivers not discussed on last episode.  Down the stretch, your hosts touch on Mike Williams, Aaron Jones vs. Jamaal Williams, late-round values in rookies drafts, hierarchies of dynasty assets, turnover at the quarterback position, Teddy Bridgewater vs. Sam Bradford, and Colin Kaepernick.

The 2QB Experience - 037 - Recency Bias

March 24, 2017

Episode 37:  The Recency Bias Experience

Hosted by Greg Smith (@gregsauce) & Joshua Lake (@LakeTwoQBs)...

After urging listeners to rate and review the podcast (Editor's Note:  Please, we don't ask for much), your hosts dive into their recent experiences with dynasty and MFL10s.  Lake is grinding out a complex auction in one of Ryan McDowell's Kitchen Sink leagues, while both he and Greg have been drafting up a best ball storm with the help of Josh Hornsby's MFL10 App and some killer analysis from Ben Gretch.  From there, they move to some recent news on Cam Newton and Kamar Aiken before diving into their main topic, recency bias.  Will the past repeat itself?  Which previous time period is most representative of a player's forthcoming value?  Should we really be so down on Blake Bortles for fantasy?  Is a QB-WR stack a sandwich?  Most of these questions and others are answered in Episode 37 of the 2QB Experience podcast.

The 2QB Experience - 035 - Cody Kessler

December 29, 2016

Episode 35:  The Cody Kessler Experience

In this final regular season episode, your hosts kick things off by trying to pin down do-not-draft candidates and the best bets at quarterback to climb into the top-5 in 2017. After those absurdly early forecasts, they dive into current news and try to untangle the fantasy mess that is Week 17. The more meaningful games are given a little extra attention, as most teams don't have much to play for, and then the episode's quarterback spotlight is focused on Cody Kessler. Your hosts compare his prospects to other Cleveland signal callers, reexamine Ben Cummins' comparison of Kessler to Andy Dalton, and discuss how the Browns may approach the 2017 draft. They wrap things up with a handful of season's end thank yous and a look ahead to what TwoQBs has in store for the offseason.

The 2QB Experience - 034 - Blake Bortles

December 20, 2016

Episode 34:  The Blake Bortles Experience

Your hosts Greg Smith (@gregsauce) and Joshua Lake (@LakeTwoQBs) recap Week 15, with discussion of Tom Savage's overdue replacement of Brock Osweiler, Matt Moore's 4-TD week, Tom Brady's struggles against Denver, the varying results of other good quarterbacks in tough match-ups, the value of rushing stats from quarterbacks, and Aaron Rodgers' worst game of the year.  Blake Bortles is the episode's spotlight quarterback, and your hosts examine the short- and long-term value of him after Gus Bradley's firing.  The Jaguars' receivers are also discussed, along with speculation about Bortles' willingness to prepare harder in the upcoming offseason.  After the bulk of the slandering is over, Josh & Greg look ahead to Week 16, where Bortles has a very nice match-up against Tennessee.  They wrap up with talk of the overall playoff picture, plus a more focused Week 16 view on Derek Carr, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, and the quarterback wasteland in Los Angeles.
