Greetings! Doing two posts a week, back-to-back, can be quite stressful, especially considering I’m attempting to give you nothing but my pure unadulterated best. Sometimes it’s necessary for me to spend 30 minutes in a steamy hot shower, letting the water pelt my chiseled body, watching the droplets stream down my crevices (anyone else aroused?) like the tear drops cried by the last 3,000 women who attempted to tame me, while listening to hard hitting rap music, in order for me deliver something I deem acceptable. [Jay’s Note: The longest sentence ever…] So, shout out to Drake (for the first and last time), for dropping hot fiery rocks on Meek Mill the fraud and for inspiring me to touch on every single offense playing skill position player drafted in the first three rounds of 2015. I won’t dig too deep, as the majority of your attention span seems to be shorter than a squirrel’s privates, but if you have any specific questions on the named men, then ask them in the comment section and will reward you with a facial of fantasy football information. Remember to look at some of these players from a dynasty perspective, as I know many of you, much like myself, like to pluck them when they’re young, cheap, and willing… When it comes to Lord Beddict, first of his name, remember to hate, not the player, but the game.

I am Tehol Beddict, and this is Disgrace/Delight, Rookie Edition! Take Heed!

Owen-Daniels-Cover

Hey guys, just finished pouring some maple syrup on my eggs and pancakes. I hope you all can stomach the sweetness my posts have to offer. I apologize for my absence last week as my laptop kept dying over and over and was unusable. The blue screen of death and Lenovo terrorized me. Straight to the good stuff: A post about a player that could be of tremendous value past pick 100. Who is that you say? Well it is the Bronco’s TE, Mr. Owen Daniels.

"Look at me! My hamstring and I are having relationship issues! Weeeeee!"

“Look at me! My hamstring and I are having relationship issues! Weeeeee!”

See what I did there with the title? Yes you did. Yesterday, there were some concerns that the Bills’ LeSean McCoy may not be ready for Week 1 after suffering a hamstring injury early in the preseason. And now Rex Ryan has expressed doubt as well:

I hope,… if not then the next man has to step up. So we will see. If he is not ready to go, he won’t be in there.”

It appears that McCoy is dealing with a “small tear” in the hamstring (proving that anything can sound delicious when combined with the word ham), tearing in a spot “that couldn’t have been better”. Okay. I’m no longer hungry, so I have to ask, even if it’s best possible tear in the history of all hamstrings (nope, I’m hungry again), it’s still a tear of the hamstring, right? I have to hand it to them though, a lot of hustle here to play this story down. Yes he tore his hamstring. But it’s the best possible tear ever! If McCoy is a no-go, which seems likely at this point, it’ll be Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon getting most of the carries, as Karlos Williams is still recovering from an undisclosed leg injury. No worries though, I hear Fred Jackson is available…

It’s been over a month since I posted my initial IDP rankings, and the only constant since then has been change. I’ve updated the rankings in those original posts, but some players warrant a closer look for those of you drafting late or trying to figure out Week 1 lineups. I’ll post a full set of Week 1 rankings next week, but for now here is a quick look at some players of interest as kickoff looms a week away:

If you haven’t already, join one of our several RazzDP leagues!

We’ve had an amazing run so far boys and girls. And by boys and girls, I mean men and women. And by men and women, I mean many men and possibly a woman. But I digress. We’ve had a great time creating leagues and drafting players so far in the RCLs, but the next week or so will mark the end of what is known as “the drafting season”. I think… I have actually have no idea if that’s what it’s called. If it isn’t, it should be. We still have a school system based on an agrarian calender, so why not add farming terminolgy to fantasy football? I’ve had worse ideas folks. Scary, right? Regardless, if you still want to be a part of the Razzball Commenter Leagues, there are still spots open, and there’s no limit to how many leagues you create and/or join. So follow me after the jump to take a shot for some pretty sweet prizes!

Greetings! I’d like to start by praising the Elders for giving me the strength and durability of a Kardashian furburger, allowing me to put in more fantasy sports work in these past few weeks than I ever thought humanly possible. From co-hosting the Razzball Fantasy Football podcast (my wet dream come true) with Jay (great musical choice this week. KUDOS!), to doing the In this League podcast with talented and sexy Bogman and the Welsh (I teach them all about designer clothing), then to my dear-dear friends Justin Mason and Mike Werner’s Friends with Fantasy Benefits podcast (I’m stealing that name if it’s not trademarked), AND FINALLY I’ll also be joining my squad on The Nickel Press Live Show, which we will be doing every week, Sunday mornings before game time. That’s not even mentioning the two Fantasy football posts a week and doing my utmost to respond to each and every one of your fantasy questions and comments. Oh, and I dropped THIS!

First allow me to send my condolences to any of you that have already had your draft and in said draft you drafted Jordy Nelson. This is one of the main reasons I won’t allow my leagues to draft more than five days before the start of the season. Ranking players within the same position is relatively easy, but comparing players across positions is a much more difficult task. However, it is an essential exercise in order to figure out who to draft, and when. Using my 2015 projections and both VORP (value over replacement player) and VOAP (value over average player), I have ranked the top 543 players. Here are my first 8 rounds in a 12-team league…

Both Jared and RG-3 have been taken out. If I were Justin Tuck, I'd be worried...

Both Jared and RG-3 have fallen. If I were Justin Tuck, I’d be worried…

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Okay. Not really. And so it was, and so it shall be, which was proclaimed long ago when the Washington Football Team traded what would be Janoris Jenkins, Michael Brockers, Zac Stacy, Stedman Bailey, Greg Robinson, and Alec Ogletree for Robert Griffin III, and then a few days later, drafted his eventual successor in Kirk Cousins. Bible-speech aside, I have to say, maybe Mike Shannahan and company might have been better off just waiting, you know, until their sixth pick and drafting Ryan Tannehill. Sure, hindsight has that amazing 20/20 vision, but as I mentioned in yesterday’s podcast, this quarterback excursion seemed doomed to fail, even as far back to that aforementioned day when both RG-3 and Kirk Cousins were drafted. Obviously, the situation was exacerbated over time by injuries, stunted development, complete coaching failures, further coaching changes, system changes, ownership dysfunction, etc. etc. And this is a normal Monday for the franchise. So here we are and Kirk Cousins is now your Week 1 Starter in Washington. I would go on to establish some fantasy context, but I’m not sure there is any. Just further proof that Washington has now eclipsed the Raiders at being the Raiders. Truly… these are dark days in the District.

In case you guys haven’t noticed, Fantasy Basketball is warming up once again, and our RCLs are open! If you’d like to go keep J.B. Gilpin company for a bit, I ain’t gonna blame you. Afterall, I’m busy keeping his mom company…

You can read part one here.

Here’s two players.  Player A played in 66 games in 5 years since becoming a starter, an average of 13.2 games (16, 13, 16, 8, 13 games played by season).  Player B played in 49 games in 4 years for his career (he’s been a starter his entire career), an average of 12.2 games per season (13, 16, 5, 15 games played by season).  Player A is a running back, Player B is a wide receiver.  Do they seem durable to you?  Injury prone?  What if I told you Player A is perceived as one of the biggest injury risks in the game, while Player B sometimes gets a free pass for his injuries.  Does that seem like the best way to judge these two?

I’m still not sure why I called this pod the “pre-preseason” episode, but I’m sure it had something to do with the season fast approaching. MAYBE. Tehol and I went over the latest slate of presesason Week 3 games that happened during the weekend, more specifically about Randall Cobb and Tre Mason’s injuries, and the clusterf*ck that is the Washington quarterback situation. Also, we had a special guest, Matt from FanDuels, stop by and go over what we have in store this season for you guys daily fantasy wise. We then wrapped up the show going over Tehol‘s Disgrace and Delight rankings, always a treat. Mostly for Tehol… but a treat nontheless. Enjoy the show! (And don’t forget, if you want to take on Tehol or myself, we have leagues open in the RCL!)

Note: All of our rankings, projections, and values have been updated on Sunday and should be activated later today. They can be found here.
