The Players Podcast! Adam Lefkoe brings you the true NFL podcast going under-the-helmet and off-the-field through real conversations with players and insiders, as only Bleacher Report can do. Recapping the biggest news, previewing NFL gambling, and ALWAYS supporting the Homies, 2-3 times a week.
Lefkoe and Westbrook are joined this week by Seattle Seahawks legend and three-time Pro Bowler Lofa Tatupu. They cover a gamut of topics, from the dumb things they used to believe as children to concrete ways to fix the referee crisis in the league right now to Lofa's exciting new business venture in the CBD space. He discusses how CBD massively helped him mentally, physically, and spiritually after his playing days were over. But more than that, he's a fascinating man and a great storyteller. Then of course, Lefkoe and Westbrook break down Chiefs/Broncos and the Jalen Ramsey trade that sent shockwaves throughout the NFL.
Brian Westbrook and Lefkoe go toe-to-toe through all eight divisions to determine which team currently reigns supreme in each... and there are some pretty serious debates. Plus! The return of America's favorite Mark Cuban-based reality-tv-based sports podcast segment: Dolphin Tank! Will Lefkoe successfully trick Westbrook into believing Kirk Cousins deserves the MVP? Find out this and more on the Lefkoe Show!
Warren Sharp is back and he's dropping some fine gambling nuggets for you fine, fine folks out there. Whether you gamble or not, you'll be interested to hear some incredible stats about Sean McVay coming off a bye, the absolutely shocking team that is dead-last in the NFL in defensive efficiency by Warren's favorite metric, and which superstar quarterback is actually ranked 25th out of 27 qualified passers in Red Zone scoring. It's the sort of information that will win you money... or at least win you some arguments with your friends at the next tailgate. Come back every week for more of Sharp and Lefkoe's well-researched look at the NFL!
Raiders rookie safety Johnathan Abram joins Brian Westbrook and Lefkoe at the fidget spinner-shaped roundtable for a discussion that hits everything from the Khalil Mack trade to Jon Gruden's crazy obsessions to the hardest hitters Abram idolized as a kid. He's one of the most passionate, knowledgeable young players in the game, and certainly (we think) a future star in the NFL. Listen to him now so you can say you "knew him when" before he starts racking up Pro Bowls.
Welcome back, football fans. Brian Westbrook and Lefkoe are back in the saddle, discussing everything from Teddy Bridgewater's delightful performance, Dak Prescott's unwinnable contract situation, and the brilliance of Bill Belichick, who somehow manages to win games and destroy souls at the same time. But you're not here for that. You're here for Westbrook's hot, spicy food takes, including his doubling down that Reese's Cups are bad... how is this a legal take?? Come back all year long for more football content and general silliness.
Hey hey 33%, it's a special bonus Saturday edition of The Lefkoe Show!! Author and entrepreneur Ryan Holiday joins Lefkoe to discuss the many, many interesting nuggets he picked up while promoting his new book, "Stillness is the Key." Along the way, he pulls from sports, warfare, and literature to find various elements that have led many to personal and professional success.
Warren Sharp is back, and he's got the analytics to back up some really exciting football gambling takes. We think the Browns might have been listening last week when Warren told us that they're using way too much 3WR sets. Lefkoe has some fascinating numbers about how teams perform after the bye, and Warren has an interesting explanation that has to do with the Players Association's Collective Bargaining Agreement. There's also some major takes on what the Steelers need to do in order to put Mason Rudolph in the best position to succeed. But most of all, more important than anything, Warren absolutely SHREDS Brian Westbrook for his belief that chocolate + peanut butter is a bad combo. Please let him know on Twitter that chocolate + peanut butter is amazing. Have a great week, and let us know how much MONEY you're making this season!!
It's NFL Roundtable time! Kyle Brandt from "Good Morning Football" on NFL Network joins Lefkoe and Brian Westbrook to discuss everything from the best "Angry Runs" in NFL history to the proper nickname for Daniel Jones to what cheese humanity should be left with if all other cheeses disappeared. Yeah, buckled up 33%, because it gets a little weird in here. Have a good idea for our next Roundtable Guest?? Drop some names in the comments!
Week 4 is in the books, and Brian Westbrook is back in the studio with Lefkoe to break it all down. Vontaze Burfict's suspension, the new (and possibly historic levels) being reached by this Chicago Bears defense, and the most pleasant and most disappointing surprises from the first quarter of the season. And! The world-premiere of Lefkoe's "Shark Tank"-style segment, called -- what else -- Dolphin Tank. Come back all season long for more of Lefkoe's and Westbrook's insights on the wonderful game of football.
33%, we're so glad you're here. Warren Sharp is back, and BOY OH BOY does he have some nuggets for you. He makes his Bills/Pats pick, he has some juicy takes on the Redskins/Giants over-under, and he's even diagnosed exactly why the Browns' playcalling has been so uninspired this year... but why that might be the very reason why they might be able to defeat the Ravens. He went 5-0 last week, but we're not bragging about that. Just keep coming back all season long, but only if you like making money!
Westbrook and Lefkoe are back for a delightful mid-week conversation about... kinda whatever's on their mind after the Week 3 slate of games. Which running backs, in Eagles legend Brian Westbrook's estimate, are for real, and which ones are fraudulent? Which 3-0 team is facing a possible upset this week? And why is Frank Gore "the hardest worker" Westbrook has ever seen? Find out on The Lefkoe Show. Keep coming back, 33%!!
33%, welcome back! Week 3 was the Week of the Unexpected Quarterback. Who has the better sports movie: Gardner Minshew or Daniel Jones? Who has the better MVP case: Dak Prescott or Patrick Mahomes? How the heck did Warren Sharp go 5-and-freaking-0 in his picks??? Brian Westbrook is back in the chair with Lefkoe, as he is twice a week throughout this zany, crazy NFL season.
Warren Sharp joins The Lefkoe Show to give the 33% exactly what they want: the numbers, analytics, and predictive models to help everyone make some MONEY. They're breaking down Chiefs/Ravens, discussing how some of the biggest line movements from the weeks are being exploited by sharps in Las Vegas, and, of course, making Lefkoe's five picks for the all-important Super Contest. Check back every Friday throughout the NFL season for more of Sharp's brilliant NFL insights.
Lefkoe and Westbrook are getting into the biggest story of the day: is Eli Manning (2x Super Bowl champ, in case you hadn't heard) a Hall of Famer? The debate goes in a variety of interesting directions, culminating in Westbrook's epic defense of how Donovan McNabb was unfairly treated throughout his NFL career. Which leads to the ultimate debate: Who is the greatest black quarterback of all-time? The answer may surprise you, but the data does not lie! Check back throughout the NFL season for more in-depth football analysis from Lefkoe and Eagles legend Brian Flippin' Westbrook!
Week 2 is in the books, and Lefkoe and Westbrook are here to break it all down. From the major injuries (Brees, Ben) to the major victories (Ravens, Cowboys), to the most devastating losses (hey, Dolphins... you doing okay?). And of course, Lefkoe and Westbrook check in with which 7(and a half) teams have a realistic shot of winning the Super Bowl, and which 10 (!!!) teams are DONE. Check back all NFL season for more news, notes, and analysis.
Warren Sharp is BACK on the podcast. The 33% will love his takes on just how impressive Lamar Jackson was in Week 1, as well as some tasty betting trends that are sure to inform your bets in Week 2.

It's all getting broken down by Lefkoe and Sharp, who have one goal: to help you make cash! Tune in for more Warren Sharp every Friday throughout the NFL season on the Lefkoe Show.

Tune in every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the NFL season to hear Lefkoe and Westbrook go head to head on anything and everything football.
