We got Kacey Kasem of Fighting Chance Fantasy out of bed late on Sunday morning to join us as our special guest on today's podcast and we breakdown the NFC East.

Kacey can be found on social media @thekaceykasem and is very much a recommendation to follow!
Sam Lane a.k.a @FFStompy joins us to introduce IDP leagues. What they are, why you should try it out and some players to target that aren't the big named guys. He also gives insight in to how to draft when in IDP leagues and which positions deserve respect and which positions are shallower than others on the defensive side and a few helpful hints. What more could you ask for? We also talk about his Denver Broncos and who he thinks will contest the Super Bowl, and how he became "stompy". His work can be found on The Fantasy Football Franchise (@F3pod) and IDP guys (@IDGuys) .

There's nothing more hyped up than rookie's projections at this point in the offseason with everyone in the industry having a go at projecting fantasy outlooks for rookies that have just found a new home.

First things first: I just about managed to break even on the NFL draft bets. Had Vita Vea fell 1 more place to the Redskins (who would have taken him as they also took a defensive tackle...annoying), it would have been fairly profitable. As it was my first experience of watching the draft (watched on … Continue reading NFL Draft 2018: Round 1 Analysis: Picks 1-10
