Our fifth and final episode of 2017 puts a bow on a tumultuous year in the NFL. Melissa offers some bold predictions about the playoffs, including a James Harrison twist – and adds more prognostications about 2018.

Joining The Football Girl podcast is Yahoo Fantasy Analyst Liz Loza, who offers her biggest fantasy surprise and disappointment of the season. We also discuss Liz’s unique career trajectory. A few years ago I was binge-watching Scandal when a familiar face played a reporter directing a question toward Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington). It was Liz! In this podcast, Liz discusses her decision to leave behind acting for fantasy football, whether we’ll see more women in the fantasy industry, her recent night at Hamilton and more!
