The Audible: Best for Deep Cuts and Advice

What We Like
  • Some of the best and most well-versed experts in the business.

  • Deep cuts and advice for nearly any type of league.

What We Don't Like
  • The Audible was initially started casually, and it still has an on-the-couch feel that can border on amateurish.

  • These are big-time stat nerds, and the conversations can get pretty stat heavy, which isn’t for everyone.

The Audible is produced by Footballguys.com, one of the top fantasy football websites around, and features Cecil Lammey, one of the preeminent voices in all of fantasy football. While Lammey doesn't host the podcast as much as he used to, The Audible still goes deep, covering everything from potential breakout stars to little-known players that might give your league a boost. The experts know the nuances and rules of all the different possible scoring settings out there, as well.

Rotoworld Football Podcast: Best Access to NFL Experts

What We Like
  • Access to breaking news and big-name NFL experts.

  • Thorough analysis and unique advice.

What We Don't Like
  • Lots of upselling throughout the podcast to buy their premium products.

  • Episodes can get long for those in a hurry.

If you’ve been playing fantasy football for a while, then you’ve probably heard of this podcast and already visited Rotoworld’s website for advice. Backed by NBC, Rotoworld’s fantasy football podcast gets high marks for its well-constructed episodes and access to top-notch NFL experts.

While it’s a professional podcast, Rotoworld isn’t trying to be flashy. They typically get right into the conversation without the sort of light banter or attempts at humor that other podcasts gravitate toward.

NFL Fantasy Live: Most Trustworthy Source

What We Like
  • This is straight from the NFL, meaning it’s super reliable and always has the latest news.

What We Don't Like
  • As a bigger production, they have to appeal to a mass audience, leaving them prone to more generic advice or focusing only on well-known players.

This is a big-time production backed directly by the NFL. It feels more like a radio show than a guys-on-their-couch-just-hanging-out vibe, like some of the other podcasts on this list. Since NFL Fantasy Live is backed by the NFL, you can definitely trust the news and stats provided, and NFL Fantasy Live does a really good job of bringing in experts from around the fantasy football world.

Harris Football: Best Independent Fantasy Podcast

What We Like
  • Veteran analysis from one of the best in the business.

  • Unique, independent perspective.

What We Don't Like
  • If listening on the website, it’s not the most user-friendly.

Chris Harris is widely recognized as one of the top fantasy experts working today, and his podcast reflects that expertise in every episode. Having spent eight years at ESPN before going solo, he’s been doing this whole podcast and fantasy football thing for a while. Chris isn’t tied to any big network, giving him the freedom to talk about the topics he really enjoys without having to appease broad audiences.

Fantasy Football Today: Podcast Most Like a Traditional Sports Radio Show

Screenshot of Fantasy Football Today's podcast page on Stitcher.
What We Like
  • Good production value.

  • Daily shows.

What We Don't Like
  • Advice isn’t always unique.

Not to be confused with the similarly named fantasy football-themed website FFtoday.com, Fantasy Football Today is brought to us by CBS Sports. As with some of the other podcasts produced by bigger names, Fantasy Football Today can sometimes feel like a traditional sports-radio show rather than a unique podcast with DIY aesthetics.

We give them bonus points for actually producing a daily show (minus weekends) and still finding relevant topics to discuss every time. Since this podcast is associated with CBS, you get reliable experts and breaking news, but they can fall prey to discussing the same topics as every other fantasy football podcast.

Fantasy Football Follies: Most Entertaining Podcast

What We Like
  • Entertaining delivery of useful advice.

What We Don't Like
  • Not necessarily the deepest insights.

  • Only offers weekly shows during the NFL season.

Coming from DraftKings, Fantasy Football Follies is one of the most entertaining fantasy football podcasts around. Michael Rapaport (yes, that Michael Rapaport) lends his personality and voice to this weekly show.

Since this cast comes from DraftKings, there’s a lot of focus on advice that would only apply to daily fantasy products, but there’s still a lot of useful information for traditional leagues delivered in an entertaining way. While Rapaport and his cohost are fun to listen to, they're not the lifelong fantasy experts you might get elsewhere.

Watch out for the occasional swear word.

Eat. Sleep. Fantasy.: Most Fun Podcast With Great Advice

Screenshot of the podcasts page on Eat Sleep Fantasy's website.
What We Like
  • The original rap song they play at the beginning of episodes.

  • Likable hosts that start to feel like your friends.

What We Don't Like
  • Opens with an ad before every episode.

  • Might get too comedic for hardcore fantasy players.

If the title of this podcast sounds like your everyday life, this is the show for you. These guys live fantasy football just as much as you do. These are real people who are fun to listen to, rather than trained broadcasters who sound like everyone else.

This is a fun podcast that still gets into the nitty-gritty with advice you really need to win your league, and they’re willing to cover topics that others might not.

There is some casual swearing in this podcast, so put earmuffs on the kiddos first.

Yahoo Fantasy Football: Most Focused Analysis

What We Like
  • Unique advice and angles that others just don’t offer.

  • Access to some of the best NFL and fantasy experts in journalism.

What We Don't Like
  • Production quality can sometimes vary.

Yahoo was one of the very first to offer fantasy football online, and there’s a good chance you’re in at least one league that uses Yahoo!’s platform. The Yahoo Fantasy Football podcast utilizes those years of experience with best-in-class experts and unique advice with a very small amount of messing around. They really tend to get right to the topics and analysis you want to hear, while still keeping it friendly and entertaining.

FantasyPros Podcast: Best for Heavy Stats

What We Like
  • Great experts with years and years of experience.

  • Casual format but focused and useful.

What We Don't Like
  • The hosts are fun, but it can get pretty heavy into stats for casual players.

FantasyPros is one of the top fantasy sports websites in existence, and for good reason: they provide some of the best and most robust analysis among the many fantasy websites out there. The FantasyPros podcast hosts have years of experience under their belts, and that expertise shines through in every episode. While you’re listening, click around the website for additional tips that will definitely help you crush the draft and the season.

Fantasy Focus Football: Best for Listening to High-Level Talent

Screenshot of the Fantasy Focus Football podcast page on ESPN's website.
What We Like
  • Consistent, top-notch production quality.

What We Don't Like
  • Hosts tend to cover the same broad topics as everyone else.

The ESPN-produced Fantasy Focus Football podcast provides exactly what you’d expect from an ESPN podcast: high-level talent, professional production quality, and tons of fantasy insight.

With ESPN you know you’re going to get access to breaking news and reliable insight from some of the top NFL reporters in the business. But ESPN also has to keep its broader audience happy, meaning it can fall into the same debates everyone else is going over without always providing unique analysis.
