Fantasy Files: Building an 11-player ‘Space Jam’ team with current NFL stars
Host Ian Hartitz decides to honor the release of Space Jam 2 by breaking down who planet Earth should start in an 11-on-11 football game against aliens with the fate of humanity on the line. The quarterback conversation is tricky because the players will be playing both ways, but ultimately Ian can't leave Patrick Mahomes off the field. The running back position comes down to two of the league's best pure rushers, while Ian is confident that builidng the offense over the defense will pay dividends at receiver and tight end. The potential for refs to be afraid to call too many ticky tack holding calls with their future on the line leads Ian to go with some of the league's best defensive linemen over the o-line. The podcast concludes with notes on arguably the game's single-best corner and some honorable mentions.
