In this week’s fantasy sports podcast, we are once again joined by Jeff Erickson of Rotowire.

We start off talking about how fantasy owners had to navigate through a tricky week, dealing with some risky pitchers making multiple starts.

One of those guys was the Pirates’ Joe Musgrove, courtesy of that ridiculous ejection he got in Atlanta. Erickson has some strong opinions on how that went down.

Maybe the Pirates pitching staff can get a break against the weak-hitting Marlins this weekend. We look at exactly how spotty the offense has been in Miami this year and whether the likes of Chris Archer can take advantage after he gave up five homers to the Braves this week.

The Brewers and Reds highlight some other points of interest in the NL Central for fantasy players. In particular, how about that game between Milwaukee and Houston on Wednesday night?

It featured 38 strikeouts. Jeff called it “the most perfect 2019 game ever.” He explains why.

Fantasy golf is at the center of attention as well, thanks to the ongoing U.S. Open. We tackle that topic, too.

Then we’ve got a few fantasy football nuggets, including what the Patriots may do at tight end. Rob Gronkowski has retired, and they missed out on Kyle Rudolph.
