For Buccaneers fans who love fantasy football, we have got a treat for you this week.

When you’re going to talk fantasy football and a very uncertain Buccaneers’ running back situation, you want an expert.

So, of course, we begged and pleaded for Mike Wright from the Fantasy Footballers to join us.

Graciously, he accepted our invitation, and what followed could be called nothing less than fantasy football gold.

In the episode, we attacked the topic of Doug Martin and his upcoming suspension from a fantasy standpoint.

Current draft trends have the sixth-year back being taken in the fourth round. The fourth round!

Luckily for James and I, we weren’t the only ones who thought this was a disturbing trend, and we were able to get his opinion on record.

Also on this week’s episode, we covered young backs who might make a big splash and older players whose production may take a hit as their age gets closer to the top of the hill.

Finally, who from the Buccaneers’ running back stable is worth your draft investment, if any?

It’s a fun-filled episode with explosive analogies and laughs to be had by all.

Take a listen and let us know your own thoughts on fantasy football running backs. Whether they be Buccaneers players or not, we want all of your fantasy takes.

James and I also talk a little bit about the “Stick Carrier” movement that has reached the front office of the Bucs and what it could mean for the fan base moving forward. Like it or not, the Stick Carriers are here to stay – and that’s probably a good thing.
