Farewell Chris, Stock Up/Stock Down & Mailbag


This is a bittersweet day for the guys at The Fantasy Takeaway. Chris has decided to step away for personal reasons. He’ll still be helping behind the scenes, but all-in-all recording a show every week and two during the season just wasn’t something that he decided could fit with his life. We’ll miss having you as a third voice on the show Chris, but we know you’ll go on to big things in the coming months and years. That said, the show must go on. On Chris’ last official episode as a full-time host, the guys talk the major News & Notes, some Stock Up/Stock Down, and take some questions from listeners in the return of the Mailbag.

Rookie Big Board, Ingram/Kamara & Matt Ryan Gets $150M!?

Yo! Dynasty nerds! Listen up! Rookie big board in the house! This one even comes with some surprises. On this episode, the guys take you through all of the obvious big board guys, and some of the not so obvious ones as well. Barkley, Jones II, DJ Moore, Courtland Sutton and many, many more. First up, the boys talk a little bit about draft strategy and Mark Ingram’s four-game suspension–including just what it means for Alvin Kamara. It wouldn’t be an episode of The Fantasy Takeaway without a rant from Joe about quarterback pay, so of course there’s a nice chunk of News & Notes dedicated to Matt Ryan’s new 5-year $150 million extension. The guys even try and fail to get excited about Tyrod Taylor in that revamped Browns’ offense.

Draft Review & Nick Kendell (Mile High Huddle) Interview

On this episode, the guys break down all their favorite picks from day two and three of the NFL Draft. On last year’s NFL Draft Recap, Joe highlighted the skills of Kareem Hunt, Jamaal Williams, and Harrison Butker. Murphy, true to character, underscored the talents of Alabama safety Eddie Jackson. With Chris along for the ride and guys like Shaquem Griffin and Michael Gallup under the microscope, there are sure to be some gems in this episode we’ll be looking back on a year from now.

But first, the guys have a very special guest on the show. Nick Kendell came on the podcast last season and clued us into Kareem Hunt and Alvin Kamara (among others). This year he’s back to talk rookies with Joe & Murphy. There’s a strong chance there will be at least one guy talked about in this interview that you’ll look back in come December as a league winner. Stay tuned all offseason for more great guests on The Fantasy Takeaway Podcast
