Comedians David Spade, Nick Swardson and Brody Stevens are joining a group of celebrities and NFL on FOX guys to play fantasy football, and you’re invited to watch them, starting this weekend on Fantasy Football Uncensored on FOX Sports 1.
Swardson already started trash-talking on Twitter: “I’m going to win this fucking shit.”
Fantasy Football Uncensored premieres at noon EDT Saturday with a one-hour Draft special that re-airs on FOX at 2 p.m. Sunday.
NFL on FOX Insider Jay Glazer and Spade are spearheading this all-star league.
“Spade has been trying to extort insider information from me for years,” Glazer said. “We started talking and thought it would be hilarious if some of the conversations we have had played out in front of all of America to see … it’s really going to be a microcosm of what sports fans all over the country are already doing, and we are going to embrace that and deliver the best information in a very entertaining way.”
Along with Spade, Swardson and Stevens, the rest of the League will include Rascal Flatts’ bassist Jay DeMarcus, MMA icon Chuck Liddell, No Filter’s Katie Nolan, and actor Jerry Ferrara, plus an NFL on FOX team entry consisting of former football players Brian Urlacher, John Lynch, Ronde Barber and David Diehl. Glazer will host and serve as league commissioner. You’ll find their league on FOX Fantasy Football on FOXSports.com.
“This cast embodies the spirit of FOX Sports attitude,” said George Greenberg, FOX Sports EVP, Content Integration & Presentation, in making the series announcement for the sports channel, just celebrating its first anniversary. “Each one of them has a passion for football and loves the competitive nature of playing the game. They bring a fresh take to Fantasy Football.”
Following the premiere on FOX, 16 episodes of Fantasy Football Uncensored, presented by State Farm, air weekly on FOX Sports 1 throughout the NFL season, beginning 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4.
