This week on UnderTheHoodies our heroes breakdown the Super Bowl 51, go over some prop-bets and then talk about their weekend together in Syracuse. Things go a bit off the rails when Tony starts talking WWE Royal Rumble but Bill manages to get it back on track, somewhat.
Which team are you getting this week?
This week, flip a coin. Heads is the Steelers from Week Four. Tails is the Steelers from Week Three. I’ve never seen such a ten-fold flip in a team in one week. The Pittsburgh Steelers rocked the Kansas City Chiefs in Week Four 42-14 with the Chief’s 14 points coming late in the fourth quarter.

We will also find out some later round values on the defensive side of the ball John is in favor of.
Ryan will also reveal the top 10 of his Mock Draft that will be released on Wednesday. Major movement by 2 players (1 up and 1 down) feature the latest picks.

Ryan Stern is live every Tuesday night to discuss the world of sports.
The NFL Combine has come and passed and there were some notable performances that took place in Indianapolis. Who cemented their place in the 1st round? Who fell down some draft boards? We will discuss.
We will also look into the Mets and Yankees as by Wednesday, both teams will have completely reported to Spring Training. Do the Yankees need A-Rod to outperform expectations to have a successful season? Is the return of Matt Harvey to the loaded rotation enough for the Mets to make a postseason run?
We will be taking your calls at 760-283-0846

We have all heard the stereotypes before. Fantasy sports…nerdy. Reading books…nerdy. So what do we think about reading a book about fantasy sports? Well, two wrongs absolutely DO make a good write. In one of the more interesting viewpoints of friendship and camaraderie, ESPN Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst Matthew Berry hit a homerun with his New York Times bestselling book “Fantasy Life: The Outrageous, Uplifting, and Heartbreaking World of Fantasy Sports from the Guy Who's Lived It.”
DAN BIDS FAREWELL TO THE 2011 FANTASY SEASON IN THIS WEEK'S START HIM! SIT HIM!
Congratulations to the 2011 Fantasy Football Champions!
However, those of you who won your league already have little, if any, reason to read this week’s column, so perhaps I should congratulate those of you who insist on continuing your fantasy playoffs into the 17th week of the regular season, as you are the only ones who will probably be interested in my picks this week.
I don’t want to waste much time this week before getting into the picks, so let’s do a quick recap of Week 16 before we get into Week 17.
DAN SORTS THROUGH THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY FROM HIS PRESEASON PREDICTIONS IN THIS WEEK'S START HIM! SIT HIM!
Welcome to the fantasy football championship round!
Now, I realize the championship round really only matters to two owners in each league (or possibly four, if you have a third-place game) but it’s still important because it marks the end of the fantasy season.
All the time you devoted back in August preparing for your draft has just as much, if not more, to do with how your team finished than the work you did in trades, waiver wire transactions, and setting your lineup throughout the year.
With that in mind, I wanted to take a look back at the draft guide I wrote back in August and see how my predictions held up over the course of the season. This will give you something to go by when considering whose advice to take when draft time rolls around next year.
DAN AND DEMARCO MURRAY'S SEASONS COME TO ABRUPT ENDS IN THIS WEEK'S START HIM! SIT HIM!
It can all change in a split second.
One second, the fantasy God’s giveth with the emergence of DeMarco Murray, and in one play, they taketh away with a season-ending ankle injury.
One second, the fantasy God’s taketh away Greg Jennings with a regular season-ending knee injury, and they giveth Donald Driver and James Jones as viable options in the fantasy playoffs.
Fantasy football is just as unpredictable–if not more so–than NFL football. The same way Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have to maintain their march towards perfection without their best wide receiver, fantasy owners have to find a way to replace their second-round pick with a waiver wire free agent in the middle of the playoffs.
DAN HANDS OUT FANTASY MVP AND LVP AWARDS IN THIS WEEK'S START HIM! SIT HIM!
Welcome to the fantasy football playoffs! Or if you spent your first two draft picks on Jamaal Charles and Peyton Manning, welcome to the fantasy football offseason!
Many teams were destined for the playoffs immediately after their fantasy draft took place, while others became contenders through trades and good fortune throughout the season. Some teams playoff chances were sunk as soon as their first round pick went down with a season ending injury, while others were made because their late-round handcuff transformed into a top-tier fantasy player.
With that in mind, I wanted to take a look back and hand out the fantasy MVPs and LVPs at every position this week. Yes, I realize the playoffs will have some say as to who actually is the most valuable at the end of the year, but football hands out its regular season MVP award with no regard for playoff performance, so I’m going to do the same.
