Phil Kessel and Josh Bell are affecting fantasy sports lineups in different ways.

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

This week we get into major player changes affecting hockey and basketball fantasy leagues.

We’ve seen a ton of player movement in the NHL. Jeff and I each give you one player that has changed teams who could kill fantasy owners now that they’ve joined different clubs.

Also, there’s one player swap that Jeff really thinks will impact the NBA. Find out what it is.


LISTEN: Weekly fantasy sports podcast

In baseball, home runs are blurring the lines of reality. Well, if reality actually exists in fantasy baseball.

But you get the point. Much like in the real world, are the power numbers bloating the values of certain players in fantasy baseball as they are on-field?

Plus, we are roughly a year into expanded legalized gambling. We examine how the fantasy world is being impacted.

And, believe it or not, we even dive into fantasy … tennis?

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.
