Football is here! Finally a meaningful game for the Minnesota Vikings!

So let’s talk fantasy.

Obviously, the announcement of Shaun Hill starting at quarterback for the Vikings on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans will have an impact on the performance of some of Minnesota’s top offensive players. The production of the Vikings’ rushing attack should get a boost, but the team’s passing offense might be pretty hard to watch this weekend.

Border Battle 1.0 is nearly upon us. Will the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings assert their dominance over the NFC North or will the Green Bay Packers stage a second act comeback? We welcome in Alex Gelhar (@AlexGelhar), NFL.com Fantasy Writer and Packer apologist, to the show to dissect who will be Ronda Rousey and who will be Holly Holm Sunday afternoon at The Bank. (We’re obvious Holly Holm.)

We chatted about what Aaron Rodgers’ deal is, if Adrian Peterson can keep up his historic 2012 pace, where the Vikings’ passing game is going wonky, how the Zimmer Hellfire Defense matches up against the Packers offense, and much much more. I also continue to whine about Chase Ford becoming a Raven.

With the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings bye week upon us, we still roll on because WE GOT NOWHERE ELSE TO GO!

Tom Schreier (@tschreier3) of Cold Omaha rejoins the show to talk about the Purple through the first quarter of the season, ramifications of the Gerald Hodges trade, how Teddy Bridgewater has never really had a decent offensive line (in the regular season), if Daily Fantasy Sports will survive in this country, how the Minnesota Twins are so media friendly, and a general overview of the state of Minnesota sports media.

Luke Inman of eDraft stops in to talk some Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings to fill up the Bye Week with some audible goodness. We touch on how the offensive line can get right in two weeks (it probably can’t), Teddy out-dueling Peyton Manning (no big deal), the new logjam at wide receiver, how that Zimmer Hellfire Defense is saving us, and if Blair Walsh is gonna get Scobee’d or Mason Crosby’d.

We also dive into Luke’s specialties of fantasy football and the rapidly approaching 2016 NFL Draft. Check out all of Luke’s videos on the eDraft YouTube page.
