Fantasy Football with Russ Bliss


Since 2001, Santisi Brother’s has been the proud sponsor of one of the nation’s longest running and best fantasy football radio shows: “The Red Zone with Russ Bliss”. Russ Bliss broadcasts live from Santisi Brother’s every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 6-7pm and provides fantasy football advice every night. The show is broadcast live on local station The Fan AM 1060.

The Red Zone is chock full of the absolute latest fantasy football player news, along with tips on who to start and who to keep on fantasy football benches, and whether a trade is a good for a caller’s fantasy team or not. Russ gives insight into how each player is expected to perform in the coming week’s contest and for the rest of the season.

In the NFL’s preseason Russ gives fantasy football draft strategy tips and advice and invites fantasy leagues to come out and hold their fantasy football draft parties at Santisi Brother’s. It’s become an annual event for some leagues!



Russ Bliss also invites his listeners to come out and play Santisi Brother’s Free Fantasy Football Challenge on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 5:30-8:30pm. Each week listeners come out to Santisi Brothers and fill out a roster of the players they think will score the most fantasy points that week. The top 3 scoring entries each week win a $50 Santisi Brother’s gift certificate.

Since 2001 Russ has met thousands of listeners at Santisi Brother’s and always sticks around at least an hour and a half after the radio show is over giving listeners face to face personalized fantasy football advice.



Russ Bliss is one of the general partners in a fantasy football website: Russ is their lead fantasy football analyst and is nationally recognized as one of the premiere fantasy football experts in the industry. Russ has been interviewed for Bloomberg News and his fantasy football bog “Tips From The Red Zone” was named one of the top authoritative fantasy football blogs by the Wall Street Journal. Russ started doing “The Red Zone” on The Fan AM 1060 in 1998. In 2000, he started doing appearances and promoting the Fantasy Challenge at Santisi Brother’s. In 2001, after leaving a full time position in the radio industry, Russ partnered with Santisi Brother’s and The Fan AM 1060 to continue doing the fantasy football radio show. The show’s huge success is both a testament to how Russ treats his callers and those who come into Santisi Brother’s to meet him and play the Fantasy Challenge, and also the highest quality of Santisi Brother’s as Arizona’s Premiere Sports Grill Restaurant.
