The significant changes started with our Thursday Night Preview in Week 6, and that segment was such a resounding success, we’re introducing a brand new Matchups segment in the same vein. First up, it wouldn’t be Tuesday without News & Notes, Injury Roundup, Booth Review, and Tapping the wire. Let us know what you think with an iTunes review, include your Twitter handle, and you might become the owner of a fancy new Fantasy Takeaway T-Shirt.
