Home / Podcast / FANTASY FOOTBALL FEEDING FRENZY: Wild Card Preview


The fantasy football season may be over, but the NFL season is just starting to really heat up.

That’s because whether Jim Mora wants us to or not, it’s time to start talking playoffs.

This weekend eight of the NFL’s 12 postseason participants will battle in the Wild Card round. And there are sub-plots galore.

Will the battle of bad quarterbacks in Houston between the Texans and Oakland Raiders be the ugliest Wild Card game ever or just the ugliest one of the 21st century? And does either team stand a snowball’s chance the following week in Boston or Kansas City?

Do the Detroit Lions, losers of three straight to teams all left in the NFC bracket heading into the playoffs, have a shot at knocking off the Seahawks in Seattle? And if not how far can this iteration of the Seahawks advance?

Can the Miami Dolphins repeat their win over the Pittsburgh Steelers from earlier in the season—a win that keyed the Dolphins playoff push? Or are the Steelers the AFC squad best equipped to challenge the New England Patriots?

And finally, could Sunday’s finale in Green Bay be the beginning of another miraculous postseason run by Eli Manning and the New York Giants? Or are Aaron Rodgers and the red-hot Green Bay Packers the team no one wants to face in the Divisional Round?

Join Fantasy Sharks Staff Writers Gary Davenport, Todd Latzke and Walton Spurlin on Thursday, January 5 at 7 PM ET as they discuss all that, fantasy playoff leagues and more in the first episode of The Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy in 2017.

Let’s start the New Year right!

Come on in – the water’s FINE!
