Fulfill your Fantasy At Blush! It's our weekly fantasy sports podcast with Jeff Erickson. Bye week patch-overs. Larry Fitzgerald struggles. Questions about San Francisco's offensive burst. Devonta Freeman and Cooper Kupp replacements.
I speak with Steelers cornerback Joe Haden about why the defense has gotten better of late. We also preview the Browns with Baker Mayfield. Plus, we dive into how the linebackers reacted to the return of Vince Williams. And we get into what's gone wrong with Artie Burns and how he can help.
Le'Veon Bell may never show up. If he does, here is the best way too handle it. I'll also tell you why that solution won't happen.
