The NFL playoffs have not disappointed thus far, giving Liz Loza and Matt Harmon a lot to discuss on the latest fantasy football podcast!
Kicking off the weekend, Kyle Shanahan, Robert Saleh and the San Francisco 49ers put on a show on both sides of the ball, completely dominating the Minnesota Vikings. Particularly impressive was the re-emergence of Tevin Coleman in the SF backfield. As always, the 49ers RB situation is hard to parse from a fantasy angle, but it demands your attention. (0:35)
In an immense upset, Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and the Tennessee Titans continued their magic to knock off the Baltimore Ravens IN Baltimore one week after taking out Tom Brady and the Patriots IN New England. Derrick Henry, in particular, has been unreal in these playoffs, running for over 180 yards in consecutive weeks. Liz and Matt discuss whether the behemoth runner will be worth a top-five fantasy draft pick next season. (8:40).
The Texans-Chiefs game was absolutely nuts. The Texans were up 24-0 at one point in the game, yet lost 51-31 to quarterback-god, Patrick Mahomes, and the Chiefs. Sorry, Bill O'Brien and the Texans, but our hosts are at a loss on how to stop this team. (20:25)
Wrapping up Sunday's games, the Packers advanced to the NFC Championship on the backs of a great Aaron Rodgers performance and a greater Davante Adams performance. Pretty impressive considering the rest of the Green Bay WRs are Allen Lazard and a bucket of spare car parts. (25:50)
Elsewhere in the NFL, Kevin Stefanski was hired by the Cleveland Browns to be their new head coach, right after the 49ers shut down the Vikings offense (33:50). On the other side of the spectrum, the Broncos fired Rich Scangarello and replaced him with Pat Shurmur as offensive coordinator (39:10) and the Jaguars parted ways with John DeFilippo (43:35). Liz and Matt discuss these moves and what they mean for fantasy.
Finally, Liz and Matt pick this weekend's two conference championship games against the spread in Titans/Chiefs and Packers/49ers. (50:15)
