Nate Jackson took a lot of direction from coaches and management during his NFL career but in his new book, "Fantasy Man," the former Denver Broncos' tight end is calling the shots. Ostensibly about a season in the life of his fantasy football team the Bunny Sleeves, Jackson's book also offers his thoughts on the multimillion-dollar fantasy sports industry, marijuana use by players, and the relationship between players and fans.

Jackson spoke with Colorado Matters host Nathan Heffel.
