Matt Harmon almost died six years ago. He was radically depressed, overweight, and abusing substances and alcohol. In this episode I talk with the Yahoo! Sports football writer, analyst and podcast host about what plunged him down the rabbit hole, how he lost 100 pounds and pulled himself out of the darkness. Harmon is most well known for creating Reception Perception -- the ultimate analysis of NFL wide receivers widely used by fantasy footballers. Prior to joining Yahoo! Sports as a fantasy football expert guru influencer he worked for the NFL Network and wrote for The Washington Post. The Game of Thrones fan and University of Lynchburg (then Lynchburg College) graduate grew up in Virginia.
