It is our first show for the 2017 season! We will talk about major free agency moves, draft needs and then pick the teams that each of us will be covering in 2017. Who will get the pleasure of covering the Jets or the Niners this year??? The whole tone for the year is determined in this episode. Ashley gets the Seattle Seahawks for a third year in a row, Courtney for the first time will not be covering her Dolphins and Brandon as always did not get a single team that she wanted. Listen in to see where the other teams fell.
Hard though it may be to believe, it's Week 11 of the 2016 NFL season already. We're well into the fantasy playoff stretch run.
Time flies when you're having fun, huh?
At least some folks are. The ones who drafted Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans are probably feeling pretty good about their chances right now.
Or maybe you grabbed Tennessee Titans signal-caller Marcus Mariota, Miami Dolphins tailback Jay Ajayi or Green Bay Packers wideout Davante Adams off the waiver wire, and while things were dark there for a little while the sun has poked through the clouds.
Then again, maybe you burned an early pick at quarterback on Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers. Made running back Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams your first-round pick. Followed that up with Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. Heck, maybe those were your first three picks.
If that's the case, you're probably sunk.
However, whether you're sitting pretty, jockeying for postseason position hanging on for dear life or just playing the role of spoiler, every fantasy owner has one thing in common.
We're all looking for a win in Week 11, and that means it's time to get our ducks in a row.
To that end, join Fantasy Sharks Staff Writers Gary Davenport, Todd Latzke and Walton Spurlin on Thursday, November 17 at 7 PM Eastern as they break down Week 11. Sleepers and busts. Studs and duds. Upside plays and injury news -- the gang at the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy has it all.

The crew from DFSR takes a look at each game on the NFL Week 11 slate and how they each can effect lineups for FanDuel and DraftKings.
A few games really stand out with high upside totals like the Steelers-Browns, Patriots-49ers and even the Colts/ Titans.
They take on a NoHalftime challenge with OBD and compare him to other similarly-priced wide receivers.
Then there’s talk of AJ Green’s big upside, why to maybe avoid Tom Brady and even a Colin Kaepernick sighting.

The guys are back with an 11th hour pregame breakdown show for Super Bowl L1 in Houston. All the media fluff and off-field storylines are in the rearview, the guys dive into the details of what will ultimately decide the contest between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots.
After a week of discussion about prolific passing games, what role will the running games of these two teams have in deciding the champion -- and is it ultimately just as (or more) important as all the passing game talk with Matt Ryan and Tom Brady.
What factor will experience play in the contest, and how from a players point of view does this materialize in a game?
What are players doing in these final 24 hours before the game and how can these final details show up in the performance? And finally, Chatham shares a story from his Super Bowl experience, how Bill Belichick suprised the players the night before their contest against the Eagles in Jacksonville with a move that put a cloud of silence over the room.
Each of the guys makes their Super Bowl picks with their rationale for why.
