    This week on the Nerd we talk to Dan Fetes, the Sports Anchor/Reporter at 13WHAM, who covers the #BillsMafia. Our featured charity this week is Miracle Feet: an organization tackling clubfoot (or talipes equinovarus) - the treatable birth defect, that causes one or both feet to turn inwards and downwards. 200,000 babies are born with it every year, mostly in low- and middle-income countries where fewer than 15% have access to appropriate treatment. MiracleFeet is bringing the low-cost, nonsurgical standard of care, routinely provided in advanced health systems, to low-income countries. With MiracleFeet's support, the care is free or extremely low-cost for the families who receive it. We talk about his background, having covered the Bill's for many years, as well as his personal connection with Miracle Feet, our chosen charity for this episode. We then go into his take on the Bill's pre-season performance so far, and his thoughts on Josh Allen's recent deal, as well as his future. We dive into the Bill's running back group, including Singletary's performance in the pre-season and Matt Breida's role to date, as well as how the Bill's offense has changed since 2019. Dan gives us his take on the Bill's wide receiver group, including whether there are any players he would replace, and whether he thinks Marquez Stevenson was going to make the roster pre-injury. We wrap things up by looking at the Bills' defense, in particular the role of Vernon Butler, and his take on Efe Obada.

The football ensued as we get into the issues in GB, Marvin is a packer die-hard and gives me his thoughts on what it would be like without Rodgers, and we kick around a couple of ideas for fun. Rookies running backs took center stage as Marvin let me know who he thinks has the best shot to succeed and has some serious research to back it up (https://www.thefantasyfootballers.com/articles/draft-capital-its-correlation-to-early-career-fantasy-production/ (Draft Capital & Early Success)). We discuss the apparent future QB in TB, Kyle Trask, and what is happening in Houston.  Of course, we had to touch on the ever-hot topic of the Buffalo backfield. Marvin likes Z. Moss as his featured back based on some substantial numbers that you may not have known. We also touch on some other vital guys for fantasy this season, not named Diggs. We close out with the Nerding Out session and find out that one play makes Marvin ill. Get some more insight into why Marvin loves the game of football and who he listens to when he has some free time (https://t.co/2I3KmkTvr3?amp=1 (Fantasy Footballers Podcast)). This week, Marvin took a little different path and wanted to highlight an article that he enjoyed https://www.thefantasyfootballers.com/articles/fantasy-football-the-evolution-of-language-in-2020/ (Fantasy Football & the Evolution of Language in 2020).

    https://twitter.com/TomKislingbury (@TomKislingbury) joins me this week from London, UK. Tom is a senior writer at Dynasty League Football and the host of the Read and React Podcast. Tom's main fame to glory, though, and the reason for joining me this week, Defense.  Before we get into that, though, we highlight https://twitter.com/curecjdcampaign (@curecjdcampaign), a very cool organization performing research to try and cure CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease); head to http://www.curecjd.org (curecjd.org) to learn more and help out. Now to the Defense. Tom digs in deep on this massive document he put together, where he dives into each team and also breakdown defenses for anyone to understand. The Bills do not score well in his eyes, and Edmunds and Oliver are definitely in need of significant improvement to reach his standards of value for production. We bounce around the league to hit a few other defenses, and Tom hits a few teams he believes will be at the top of the league this year. Before closing out, we Nerd Out with Tom, the butt fumble makes itself know yet again, and Tom gets real nerdy about his love for the game. Got some free time for a podcast to listen to besides this one, of course, Tom recommends ().
