First-and-Ghoul (guest: John Evans)

It’s a special Halloween episode of Fitz on Fantasy, as host Pat Fitzmaurice (@Fitz_FF) is joined by John Evans (@JohnF_Evans), a contributor to the fantasy football coverage at Yahoo and co-host of a podcast about horror films, The Darkest Hour. John and Pat talk about the 49ers’ early-season success and whether this is Tevin Coleman’s backfield now, whether Emanuel Sanders can be trusted in fantasy lineups, and whether Jimmy Garoppolo is anything more than a streaming option in single-QB leagues. Then the conversation turns to John’s favorite team, the Raiders, and the emergence of Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller.John, who does Yahoo’s offensive line rankings every summer, pinpoints some of the NFL’s overachieving and underachieving offensive lines so far. Then the conversation turns to horror movies, as Pat and John discuss the films that first scared the hell out of them and recent films that might eventually be considered classics, then list their five favorite horror movies. There’s more fantasy football talk to close the show, as John and Pat compare notes on their disappointing Scott Fish Bowl teams and discuss Kenyan Drake, Ty Johnson, Matthew Stafford, Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.Host: Pat Fitzmaurice (@Fitz_FF)Guest: John Evans (@JohnF_Evans)Podcast produced by Colm Kelly (@OvertimeIreland)In association with TheFootballGirl.comMusic provided by International Jet SetLearn more about your ad choices.
