Strange fantasy takes from the upside-down and 2019 NFL divisional futures

As much as summer is full of outdoorsy activities, it’s also a season to binge watch TV shows (the television and air conditioner are especially enticing when it’s 100 degrees outside). 

In this episode of the Yahoo Fantasy Football Podcast, Liz Loza and Matt Harmon investigate some fantasy takes through the lens of their latest obsession: season three of Stranger Things. They talk about some NFL takes that might be could be from the upside-down but might be more likely than you think, including:

- how Royce Freeman could be Denver's top back this year (4:40)

- why Tom Brady should be ignored in drafts (11:10)

- why the Cardinals' run game will be more impressive than its new-look passing attack (17:25)

- a claim that a certain ornery Giants WR could maintain fantasy relevance on an otherwise crappy team (26:00)
