Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen catches a deflected pass for a touchdown in the second half of the Steelers-Chargers game, Sunday, Dec. 2, 2018, at Heinz Field. Steelers free safety Sean Davis is at right.

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

This week, I vent about my recent lack of big-time production from Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

I’m probably not alone there.

Speaking of Houston’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, we have a prediction about someone besides Hopkins who may really pop in that contest. Find out who it is.

Top of mind for fans in Pittsburgh — and fantasy football owners everywhere — is whether Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is going to explode against the Steelers as he did last year at Heinz Field. The Steelers seem to think they are better equipped to handle him. We’ll get into whether that’s true.

Jeff thinks at least one AFC North running back is going to have a huge weekend. He’ll tell you which one and why.

Fantasy matchups that come down to the wire may be heavily influenced by the Monday night game between the Packers and Lions, so we delve into that game.

It’s a tough week for survivor pools if you are running out of obvious teams to take already. For those of you who were greedy early in September, Jeff coaches you through this weekend’s games to find a play.

All that and a few nuggets from those important NFC West games in this week’s podcast.
