CBS Sports Fantasy will prep players for the 2021 season with an extensive range of content and product offerings, including its annual live Draft-A-Thon event, daily Fantasy Football Today video, and expanded podcast programming with Fantasy Football Today DFS, a new Daily Fantasy Football podcast.

On Wednesday, Sept. 1, the Fantasy Football Today Draft-A-Thon will deliver six hours of non-stop live advice and analysis from more than 30 fantasy football industry experts and guests, with detailed breakdowns of expert rankings, SportsLine player projections, sleepers and busts, plus on-the-spot answers to fantasy players’ draft-day questions. Among the experts and guests to participate include THE NFL ON CBS lead announce team of Jim Nantz and Tony Romo, and CBS Sports football and fantasy experts Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard, Heath Cummings, Chris Towers and Adam Aizer among others.

The Fantasy Football Today Draft-A-Thon will stream live for the first two hours on CBS Sports HQ, the 24/7 streaming sports news network, with the entire six hours on the Fantasy Football Today YouTube channel beginning at 6 PM, ET. During the Draft-A-Thon, CBS Sports Fantasy will again shine a spotlight on St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September. Viewers will be able to make donations to St. Jude throughout the event to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. Thus far, fans have helped CBS Sports break a fundraising record with more than $40,000 raised this year.

All season long, CBS Sports HQ will deliver daily fantasy football programming with Fantasy Football Today (12:00-1:00 PM, ET), giving fans daily analysis and advice on any screen, both live and on demand. CBS Sports fantasy experts Eisenberg, Richard, Heath Cummings and various CBS Sports guests cover fantasy football from every angle, offering in-depth analysis on the latest news, rumors and performances across the league, and answering viewer questions live. CBS Sports HQ will also feature a weekly show each Sunday (10:00 AM - 1:00 PM, ET), helping fans set their fantasy lineups with start/sit advice, weekly sleepers, bold predictions and live questions. Fantasy players can also listen to the daily Fantasy Football Today podcast, Fantasy Football Today in 5 podcast, and subscribe to the newsletter for updates in their inbox each morning.

And launching this year, the new Fantasy Football Today DFS podcast will get listeners caught up twice per week on what they need to know to win in Daily Fantasy Football. Host Frank Stampfl, with contributions from DFS experts Mike McClure and Sia Nejad, will focus on optimized lineups, pricing, stacks and more each Tuesday. On Thursdays they’ll deep-dive each game, focusing on perceived ownership, leverage plays, matchups and updated lineups.
