Truther Tracker: Don’t stop believin’ in these fantasy football sleepers

by Peter ·

Merriam-Webster defines truther as “one who believes that the truth about an important subject or event is being concealed from the public by a powerful conspiracy.” When people hear the word “truther”, they might think of conspiracy theories, like Bigfoot or the moon landing; however, this extends into fantasy football.

Have you ever had a player you believed would be amazing in the NFL, but just never caught a break, landed in a bad spot, kept on your taxi squad a couple years too long, or was held back by a certain Green Bay quarterback? I know I have and The Podfather has been asking your favorite fantasy football analysts which players they are still truthers for.

View the full list of 2019 truthers below and check back as The Podfather continues to ask guests who they are a truther for throughout the year, and be sure to share who you are a truther for in the comments!
