BallBlast Fantasy Football

On this week's BallBlast Fantasy Football podcast, Mike Wright (@FFhitman) of the Fantasy Footballers, joins Kate, Michelle and Jake discuss Antonio Gibson’s value in 2021. Michelle plays a game of “Who would you rather Draft” for the 2021 season with Mike, Kate and Jake, asking them to choose between Antonio Gibson and other studly running backs like Cam Akers, Joe Mixon and Nick Chubb. Mike makes the case to revisit a second-year running back on a very productive offense and give him another chance, while Jake discusses a mega-sleeper tight end and Kate discusses a 14+ round redraft value that she swears will finish as a WR2 in the 2021 NFL season.Last but not least, Mike Wright gives his “ballsy take” for the 2021 fantasy football season, making the case that New Orleans Saints TE Adam Trautman will finish as a TE1 and is the ultimate buy-low in dynasty leagues.Kate, Michelle and Jake discuss all of that and more on this week's BallBlast Fantasy Football podcast!Follow your hosts on Twitter!Kate Magdziuk: @FFBallBlastMichelle Magdziuk: @BallBlastEmJake Trowbridge: @JakeTrowbridgeBe sure to check out BallBlastFootball.com for more league-winning fantasy football advice and consider supporting the team on Patreon at Patreon.com/Ballblast.This episode was brought to you by Underdog Fantasy.

11. Mike Wright: Ironside. Fighting Jacks. Saint Didacus. Google Kitchen. Catering Chef. Dog Dad.

The FAMILY? Cast: Food And Music Is Life Yes? with Chef Josh K

In this episode, Mike refuses to admit that he eats Fritos!  But really, he doesn't.  Mike and I have known each other since the 1900's when both of our bands were just wee lads.  His band (Freeto Boat - look them up if you are adventurous!) metamorphosed to become Fighting Jacks, signed to Tooth and Nail records, and went on a tour or two with my band Dogwood.  I won't give away the whole interview, but he started cooking, went to culinary school, then worked at the kitchens of a pretty famous internet tech search powerhouse in Silicon Valley...  .  Mike is now playing in Ironside, and occasionally writes intricate dadcore songs for my project Saint Didacus.  The music I'm talking over on the intro is music he made with another project, super secret stuff shhh.  (Mike played on that linked St D track, but you can hear all the songs here.)  .  Intro music short clip from Captain Cuts - If You're Listening It's Never Too Late on EMO EDITS  Intro to the Outro: Clip from The Cool Kids "Mikey Rocks" from their album The Bake Sale. Check their music and merch it's so good.  .  Ending Tracks are both via Mike's bands: Fighting Jacks "Commons and Robbers" off of their Tooth And Nail Records album The Dying Art of Life  and "DOOMSDAY" by Ironside (and a clip from a new song of his...)  .  Catch up with Mike's music and dog life on IG: instagram.com/fightingmike and his band: instagram.com/ironside_music THIS SHOW'S IG page: instagram.com/thefamilycast and my personal: instagram.com/joshkemb .  Be sure to #SRRSS (www.patreon.com/familycast) and get some hydration in you at www.liquiddeath.com -- use code FAMCAST at checkout to #murderyourthirst haaaa  .  send the show a message on our anchor page (anchor.fm/familycast), or use email! famcastpod@gmail.com  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/familycast/message

161. 2020 Fantasy Breakouts & Value Plays ft. Mike Wright of The Fantasy Footballers | Fantasy Football Podcast

Fantasy Fullback Dive | Fantasy Football Podcast

Mike Wright of The Fantasy Footballers joined The Fantasy Fullback Dive podcast for the second time to discuss his journey to becoming one of the top fantasy football podcasters and most importantly, his 2020 fantasy football breakouts. As with the other fantasy football wolves, The Wolf of Roto Street Journal starts off by asking Wright about his rise through the fantasy industry (0:03:20) and his fantasy process (0:07:56). Wright then talks about The Fantasy Footballers Ultimate Draft Kit (0:12:50) and what else the Fantasy Footballers are cooking on their website (0:19:50). The two fantasy experts then dive into their 2020 fantasy football breakouts (0:24:30). Wright kicks things off by talking about Kyler Murray's year-two explosion (0:25:30), while The Wolf has to sell Wright on his QB pick (0:29:52). Next, Wright lists two stud running backs who can be found at the end of the first round or early second-round who could both finish as top-five running backs (0:33:55). The Wolf counters with Austin Ekeler (0:39:39) and his favorite mid-round running back on the west coast. Following running backs, Wright talks about two young wideouts who have legit WR1 upside and are bargains at their current price (0:44:16). The Wolf gives us a piece of Joe Brady's aerial attack and a second-year WR who both drip in tremendous upside (0:50:42). The two experts then wrap up their breakouts by listing a handful of late-round tight ends who have league-winning upside at an extremely cheap price tag.   Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skmdiBH2HYg&
