Throughout the Bay Area Fantasy Football team owners are beginning the process of pouring over information to prepare for the draft. They all hope to get as much inside information as possible in their quest to assemble a team that can win them a 2019 league title.
Well as a public service I sought the assistance of someone who has been proven an expert in the field for nearly two decades. Jason Smith hosts the aptly titled The Jason Smith Show that airs nationally five day’s a week Monday through Friday with his cohost Mike Harmon and can be heard from midnight to 2 am ET on WHNZ 1250 AM Tampa Bay plus over 400 Fox Sports Radio stations in the U.S, as well as on the iHeart Radio app and Sirius XM Radio.
Smith an Emmy Award winning broadcaster who honed his craft at ESPN, where he was part of a number of shows both on TV and radio for the network. He also hosted the highly popular NFL Fantasy Live on the NFL Network before joining Fox Sports Radio as a talk show host and their in house Fantasy Football expert.
I spoke to him from the Fox Sports Radio studios in Los Angeles where he was more than happy to help out.
