I have a lot of drive time so I'll listen to Fantasy Footballers and then if I have time, the CBS guys.

Mostly because the shows are entertaining but I think they provide enough logical thoughts that they'll cover up anything that I'm not thinking about.   Or mention a player that might not have been on my radar.

Mike Tagliere.

 

Check out his article that comes out on Thursdays called the "The Primer". It's a detailed article of every fantasy relevant player and probably my favorite read of the week.

Most of the Sirius XM guys are good. John Hansen, Jeff Radcliffe, Jeff Mans, Mike Dempsey & Bob Harris are all shows I value.  Howard Bender & Jim Bowden are brutal to listen to. Also, it’s hard to take porn star Lisa Ann very seriously, though she seems fairly knowledgeable

I listen to the CBS podcast, although more for entertainment value... their analysis has really gone downhill the last few years.  They are still funny and enjoyable to listen to though. However, it seems like they just throw out opinions now without thinking them through from all sides.

 

I also usually listen to the Fantasy Pros podcast solely for Mike Tagliere (I will also check out certain matchups in his Primer article).  The only problem with that podcast is Bobby Sylvester has to be the dumbest analyst out there. He is truly an idiot, and extremely annoying as well... so that kinda ruins the podcast for me sometimes.

 

I don’t like the Fantasy Footballers... I find their schtick annoying, and their takes to be meh.

 

I’ll also throw on the SiriusXM Fantasy radio when I’m driving.  That’s probably the best analysis of all, but some of the hosts (ahem, Jeff Mans) are ridiculously arrogant, and can’t stop telling you how great they are (even when they aren’t that great).

 

Take it all with a grain of salt.  10% of it is useful, 90% of it is opinions, but I find it enjoyable to listen to different takes.

I thought you were joking but Lisa Ann looks pretty serious about her sports gambling lol

I follow numbers.

Anybody know good sites for data (beyond pro football reference)?

Other than that, I just take in lots of opinions, pull out what significant information I come across (for example, Rivers never having really supported a secondary WR, Kupp living with Goff few years ago, etc), and go with my own gut/observations. 

Like in poker, I find my mistakes usually arise from talking myself into things

That's pretty much why I never listen to Fantasy Pros during the season unless somehow I've had time to get through FFballers and CBS.

Sylvester throws out a take, Tags corrects him, Sylvester immediately agrees.    And it's not very enjoyable.

FFBallers on the way to/from work. Mostly for the entertainment value... I try to take all advice with a grain of salt, aside from the raw data.

THIS.  I can't STAND Howard Bender, even though we have similar tastes in music haha.  I like Jeff Ratcliffe the best.

The primer is great.

 

One we thing I try to do is watch highlights on YouTube of players that are on my team and ones that are waiver wire targets. Usually you can get through them quickly the day after a game on YouTube. I can’t watch all the games so it helps me with the eye test. 

 

For IDP I look at IDP guru.com waiver wire pickups and fantasy sharks.com IDP waiver wire pickups.

 

For people that do IDP... I like listening to the football guys IDP round table. For just general podcast without IDP their “audible” is easy to listen too I find.

Podcasts from Chris Harris and Rotoworld are my main go tos. For written content my favorites are Rotoworld and Fantasypros. I'll also peruse the content on ESPN while I'm there checking on my teams. Mike Clay is by far ESPN's best analyst but they don't feature him like Berry, Yates and Karabell but when he writes something or appears on the podcast I'll tune in.

On Sirius my favorites are the Fantasy Drive, for both football and basketball. The Football Diehards are good too.

My guys as well.  It's enough to work the waiver and be aware of what's going on.  I've liked the show for several years. Really weird though, only in the past few weeks MIke has started to really annoy me.  Jason's the man though.
