Arguably the top dog in fantasy football is Matthew Berry.  The ESPN Senior Fantasy Football Analyst has turned his expertise into a robust industry.  That industry includes a popular podcast and website for starters, called RotoPass.com.

Of course, the world of fantasy sports has never been hotter and Matthew walks us through it all.

He has a dizzying command of statistics and performance strategies.  That’s made Matthew a highly sought after consultant to some huge celebrities from other worlds.

For example, he takes us inside being the fantasy football buddy of Jay-Z’s and sitting in on Jay-Z’s draft alongside other stars of the NBA and the hip hop world.
Plus, Matthew is expanding the reach of fantasy sports to another area completely and sucks the whole group into that new project.
Before the world of ESPN and fantasy sports blew up for him, Matthew had a career as a screen writer and producer and he takes the crew through some memorable moments   from his most notable film pitch.
Heather Ankeny is also someone with a deep fantasy football knowledge and sandwiched between them is J. Elvis Weinstein who is a newbie to the game.
Funny, smart and relevant: Matthew Berry joins Mark along with Heather Ankeny and J. Elvis Weinstein.
