Put Your Money Where Your Points Are

As promised, I have completed my homework for this year's upcoming auctions and am back to share the results. In part 3 of my "Points Per Dollar" series (Part 1, Part 2), I have put together my 2015 projections, converted them to fantasy points and compared each player against his current going auction value. For this data I have gathered the results of thousands of completed 2015...

Sleepless in Seattle

Deja vu is "the phenomenon of having the strong sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced, has already been experienced in the past, whether it has actually happened or not." The Seattle Seahawks are licking their wounds from a controversy-filled Super Bowl defeat. They dispatched of the NFC with a stout defense and dominant running game. The team was led...

Razzball Rankings Versus Yahoo

We are here today to point out the differences between the Razzball rankings and those that Yahoo has released to the masses. (Not to be confused with Yoohoo, which I do all the time. Then again, I usually confuse most things with chocolate drink. Totally normal.) Since we’ve already compared our rankings with ESPN, the next logical step is to have some amazing chocolate drink...

2015 Disgraces and Delights: Quarterbacks

Greetings! Forgive me I'm not up to date on current sporting events, for Twitter, whom I fully depend on for all news and information, locked my account for a solid 24 hours! Any Quarterbacks get hurt? Did the Bills announce a starter? My life is meaningless without Twitter and the Elder Gods are known to punish me from time to time, usually when I'm riding high, basking in the...

2015 Fantasy Football War Room

Gentlemen and four Ladies, I know what you’re all thinking, “Who is this man-child showing off his above-average arsenal of hair products? Is this Grey from the past?” Now that’s humorous, and I’m not talking about my arm bone. That’d be humerus!

Razzball Rankings Versus ESPN

We are here today to point out the difference between the Razzball rankings and those that ESPN has released to the masses. The first difference you’ll probably notice is that there is no Mathew Berry in our rankings. Whether that’s a good or bad thing, I’ll let you decide. Because, hey, I’m just that kind of guy. Beyond that, well, ESPN certainly likes the color of red in...

It’s Fab to be FAAB

If your league does not employ FAAB, then your commish must be a Commie! The traditional waiver wire process usually entails "rewarding" the last place team with the first waiver priority. I understand that it's meant to "help" a team that performed poorly, but it amounts to a welfare system, as James Harrison so eloquently put recently. FAAB gives all teams a budget, usually ...

The Stats Machine: Return of the Stats Machine

A long time ago (about a year) in a galaxy (Razzball) far, far way... Guess who's back, back again. The Stats Machine's back, tell a friend. Guess who's back. Guess who's back. Guess who's back. Guess who's back. Unlike most sequels that barely measure up to the original, the first two Godfather movies excluded, the second coming of the Stats Machine looks to build on a successful...

RCL Update: This is the Fun League, and You’re Invited

What a ride it’s been folks, and in this case, I’m actually not talking about your mother. Nope. I'm talking about way back (just a week ago), when we announced the formation of the 2015 Razzball Fantasy Football Commenter Leagues, and how you, the community responded. Now, just seven days since that historic (HISTORIC I TELL YA) event, we have already created more than half...

2015 Disgraces and Delights: Running Backs

Greetings! Serious question: Do any of you fine people have any recommendations for surgeons that treat third degree burns? I only ask for the fact that I've been absolutely ON FIRE as of late. Tis true, I've completed two fantasy drafts thus far, laying wood to the opposition like a meth'd out beaver. Unfortunately, I had to witness two people draft Jordy Nelson, AFTER the news...

Projections for 6-Point Passing Touchdown Leagues

It wasn’t really my intention to write about this topic last season, but we were getting plenty of questions about this specific scoring format and I wanted to make sure we had a concrete answers to give. Though, I do prefer wood a bit more.

2015 Fantasy Football Razzball Commenter IDP Leagues

After years of offense-only Razzball Commenter Leagues, 2014 saw the long overdue introduction of Individual Defensive Players to the RCL world in the form of RazzDPs. We're back again for Season Two, and it promises to be even better than Season One. Or at least it promises to be better than True Detective Season Two, but let's set the bar a little bit higher than that! J-FOH is...

Risk Management, Part 1: Running Backs

Weighing risk versus upside when it comes to drafting a player is one of the most significant ways that value is determined.  The most obvious forms of risk are injury risk and age risk but we could also consider off the field concerns, situation risk (bad team, bad scheme fit), and playing time risk (competition at position) among other types of risk.  This series of posts will...

Smokey Says: Converting Someone into Kelvin Benjamin

With preseason, there are always injuries.  It just always sucks from a bitter standpoint when it is an actual usable fantasy product. The loss of Kelvin Benjamin to the Panthers is crushing because they aren't really quite the offensive juggernaut without him. So what do the Panthers do from the standpoint of making it better for you as a fantasy player? Well, personally, I...

Podcast: The ApoCaLypse is Upon Us

Exclusive picture of the Packers' front office. The world was not ready for yet another ACL casualty. I DREW THE LINE AT SHAUN SUISHAM. AND THAT LINE I DREW, THE ONE AT SHAUN SUISHAM? IT WAS CROSSED PEOPLE. Quite frankly my dear friends, that line has now been crossed ten-fold. More like a billion-fold actually. In today's podcast, Tehol and yours truly go over some of the precarious...

2015 Disgraces and Delights: Wide Receiver

Greetings! Many of you were no doubt overwrought about my possible whereabouts this past week. Yes, slaying Kings in Canada can be quite dangerous, especially when considering the monstrous killer whales, man-flesh desiring grizzly bears, seals that will bite your dong off when you’re urinating off the bow of the boat, bald eagles that would like nothing more than to peck out your...

Underrated: Justin Forsett

Hey Razzball Nation, I am Max, your new fantasy scapegoat guru. I will soon be writing over on the basketball section as well, lending JB a hand on a weekly basis. Now you guys don’t know me. Those annoying voices in your head might be asking, “Who the F is this guy? Is he trustworthy?”. Razzballers you are right, my apologies, let me introduce myself. I play way too much fantasy...

2015 Fantasy Football Auction Strategy & Values

Well, this is it, the last required information dump (hehe, dump) for the masses in preparation for your 2014 Fantasy Football Draft. And here it is, the auction values have been released. But I'm guessing you already knew that, because, of well, ^. For those of you who have never played in an auction draft, or for those of you who do nothing but make it rain when you here the words...

Streamers: Get Rid of Defense and Kickers

I had a scheduled laid out for the preseason where I would write four different streaming columns on quarterbacks, tight ends, defenses and kickers.  To be honest, though, if I were to write about just defense or kickers, it would be about 150 words total, which isn't even enough to get the article picked up on Google News.  Kickers and defenses just don't make good streamers....

2015 Fantasy Football Projections

As I’ve been alluding to in some past content, or peppering, if you will, and I might (because steak?), the projections, like winter, were coming. And since winter is here (in the Game of Thrones sense, not the literal sense), there is no more alluding anymore folks. DEATH TO ALL ALLUSIONS. Because someone once told me that time is a flat circle. Everything we’ve done or will...

Points Per Dollar 2014 Edition, Heroes and Zeros

In my last post, The Legend of the Bid Button, and the first in this series, I examined and explained my strategy for approaching auction drafts. The key stat that I rely upon is "points per dollar" (PPD). How many fantasy points a player is expected to get me for each auction dollar I spend on him. If you have not read that post, please take ten minutes and do so. For those that...

A River Runs Through It, for at least Four More Years

There was some more preseason football to be this past Saturday, including news that Philip Rivers will be having at least eight more children in the San Diego area. That is, of course, based on his average of having five kids per month, but I should note that my math has not been verified. But, hey, remember when he was getting traded to the Titans for sure? While the signing itself...

Football is Back, Hallelujah, Hallelujah…

Amen. I just noticed this, but even though he's really injured, Niles Paul seems like he's looking at my "Amen" right there in total agreement. Actually, probably not. I'm probably just drunk. Or if you're an atheist like me, no men. Or maybe that's being sexist. Honestly, who cares. With an offseason full of deflated balls and, well, actually, come to think of it, that's all...
