Fantasy sports podcast: Bye week help; Rams sleepers vs. Steelers

Tim Benz
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (18) is congratulated by tight end Tyler Higbee (89) after scoring against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019, at Wembley Stadium in London.

It’s our weekly fantasy sports podcast with Jeff Erickson of Rotowire.

This week is crucial for a lot of fantasy owners. How should they navigate through such a heavy bye week? I know I’m getting pinched. If you are too, Jeff has some advice.

Also, it’ll be interesting to see which Los Angeles Rams get any points against that splash-play Steelers defense. Cooper Kupp may be one guy. And Jeff has an off-the-board candidate to watch, as well.

There’s a big “honey pot” conversation, too. We kick around the idea of overplaying rosters of teams going up against soft competition and how sometimes that can be a pitfall.

For those of you in gambling pools, the concept of playing the under has become increasingly popular. We tell you why.

Then there is the Antonio Brown saga. Who would ever pick him up and why?

All that and more as we prepare you for a busy Week 10.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
