Risk and Reward - RBC Canadian Open

I've just noticed that I don't have any Canadians in my Power Rankings. I didn't intentionally do this, and it wasn't meant as a slight toward the United States' northern neighbors, but there just weren't any playing well enough statistically to justify a place. To be fair, no Canadian has won the Canadian Open for the last sixty years. That's sixty, with...

2014 Fantasy Football Rankings: Defensive Linemen

Now that Jay has paved the way on the offensive side of the ball, it’s time for me to pull my weight with the 2014 Razzball IDP Rankings. As always I’m starting up front with the big boys. For the second year in a row, J.J. Watt is the class of the position, but he has some company at the top this year. Robert Quinn and Chandler Jones are both coming off breakouts in 2013, and...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Jul 23

Yesterday I took several stabs at the $20,000 first prize in what was a very top-heavy prize structure, but ultimately I came up short. My best lineup on the day finished 200th-of-5,647 and yesterday’s Official Lineup finished 704th-of-5,647 (pictured below). Our starting pitchers were great and Neil Walker was a nice lineup differentiator, but the rest was a little too ho-him...

Reggie Wayne Cleared For Camp

Nine months removed from an ACL tear Reggie Wayne has been cleared for camp, and for contact.  Though he has been significantly ahead of schedule throughout the entire rehab process, the coaching staff plans to ease Wayne back into camp work.  Even though Wayne is Andrew Luck’s security blanket, his age, 35, and the run heavy system that Pep Hamilton employs offer very little...

Lineup Maximizer: Daniel Nava-jo

The issue with writing for a site like Razzball, I've learned, is that you expend too much mental energy trying to come up with cute ways of saying everything. At least for those of us whose "written humor" is still somewhat of a work in progress, this is true. Needless to say, in just the past minute alone I've thought of so many dumb, unfunny ways of saying ...

DraftKings – Brokeback Bankroll, I Wish I Knew How To Quit You

As any DFS player knows, the daily grind of fantasy sports can be downright One Few Over the Cuckoo Nest-kind of maddening. When you hit a cold spell that drains your bankroll and has you questioning your sanity (not now, voices in my head!) you may start to think it's time to get a girlfriend or maybe just try throw a sink through the window. Your humble-but-nonetheless-certifiable...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: The Farm Report, July 22

The MiLB report is back. Mookie Betts, after a short stint in Boston, is back in Triple-A. His long term prospects haven’t changed, though; his talent will likely shine through next season, when he should be in line for regular at-bats. Another stalwart, who bursted onto the scene, has struggled mightily lately – if you’re thinking about Gregory Polanco, we’re on the same...

Who Would You Rather Have - Nick Foles or Matt Ryan

2013 was arguably the worst season of Matt Ryan's career, with the Atlanta Falcons and gave fantasy owners his floor. In contrast, Nick Foles took over for the Philadelphia Eagles last season and has shown fantasy owners his ceiling. The Falcons will get a healthy Steven Jackson, Roddy White and Julio Jones this season, while the Eagles essentially swapped a healthy Jeremy...

Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski Not On PUP List, Cleared To Play

Rob Gronkowski recently stated at an event that he was going to play the entire season. While lots of players, of course, have that same sentiment it was likely considered doubtful for Gronk. He was expected to start training camp on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list because of his torn ACL/MCL from just 7 months prior. All that has changed now that the doctor’s have...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Jul 24

Thursday marks our usual shortened MLB schedule. We have the usual names up top, but a new name brings up the rear. With a projected 3.38 ERA and 1.28 WHIP against the Phillies, it’s not that the system projects Tim Hudson to get lit up. Rather, he just doesn’t have the strikeout punch to make much of an impact in that category and he happens to draw a buzz saw matchup, Cole...
