Welcome Razzball Football readers to the offseason. I know some of you are going “what’s an offseason?” as your significant other rolls their eyes. Since there is no such thing as an “offseason”, I am here to fill that void for you. I am bringing you a series that’s going to take a look back at last year and beyond to help identify value and non-value players for next season. I don’t want to say it’s a “new” series, as if you’d remember last year. I did a similar thing for my Dase’s Digest with players such as Carson Palmer (nailed it!), Jonathan Stewart (nailed it!) and Teddy Bridgwater (did I mention how I really nailed it for Carson Palmer?). The difference with this offseason is that I have a full and thick beard… that and I’m not talking about 2015. So as I stroke my beard, it’s on to 2016 and the first player up is Joe Flacco!

I was reflecting back on my 2015 Fantasy Football season and I started to sob a bit. I know it sounds ridiculous, but before you pass judgment, they were tears of joy because Fantasy Baseball is right around the corner. Now, you might be wondering why I bring this up and I’m not even sure why. Oh, yeah, it’s because this year’s 2015 Razzball Commenter Grand Champion and the winner of a $150 Best Buy gift card and a Razzball T-Shirt is actually a Razzballer I know from the baseball side of the site…

I don’t play golf, but it seems to me that week 17 of the NFL season is the fantasy football equivalent of the 19th hole in golf. Sit back, enjoy your frosty beverage of choice, heck have three, and reflect on how you just played. If you are in a league that plays into week 17, find a new league. Seriously, find a new league. Any league that allows the champion to be decided in week 17 is one worth not playing.

While we’re on the topic, two week championship matchups should be a staple in all leagues. A season full of ups and downs shouldn’t be decided in a single week when your mediocre opponent happened to have a lucky week. I’ve instituted this rule in all of my fantasy baseball leagues and it’s due time for football as well. Baseball is a much longer season, but even with football, it makes sense.

It feels like every other week of the season I was writing about Kirk Cousins. On the season he is 10 yards shy of 4000 and has 26 passing touchdowns. He even has 5 rushing touchdowns, second most amongst quarterbacks after Cam Newton. Cousins has been a top 10 QB this season. How did he reward owners that stuck with him in the finals? How’s about 365 yards and 4 touchdowns. Will the real Captain Kirk please stand up. RG3 who?

As you might have noticed, we’ve already gone into offseason mode here at Razzball Football, but don’t worry to all of you who are in unique formats, we’ll continue to do weekly rankings right up to the Super Bowl (and you’ll find our Week 17 Rankings after the jump). But for all intents and purposes, the majority of all leagues have come to an end, including our wonderful Razzball Commenter Leagues, of which we’ll be announcing the grand prize winner later this week. But basically, the rankings have been concluded this year and I’m happy to report, with FantasyPros’ help, our final results (the week-by-week results are available after the jump)…

Year Accuracy Rank High Low Percentile
2015 57.5% 22 out of 123 59.9% 51.6% Top 20%
2014 58.1% 31 out of 125 60.7% 50.6% Top 25%

As you can see, not only did we improve from last season, we also finished just outside the coveted “Top-20” of all “experts”. (And seeing as how nearly all of those top-20 sites only offer rankings through paid subscriptions, I’m proud we were able to have such a strong showing while also sharing that with our readers without a paywall.)

Now, I don’t normally toot my own horn, mainly because my rib cage is still largely intact, but I want to note that we finished higher than essentially all of the industry leaders; Dalton Del Don, Liz Loza, Andy Behrens, Brad Evans, and Brandon Funston of Yahoo! Sports, John Halpin and Adam Meyer of Fox Sports, Chet Gresham of WalterFootball, Jamey Eisenberg of CBS Sports, Scott Engel of RotoExperts, and Tristen Cockcroft and Eric Karabell of ESPN Sports. (Matthew Berry has removed himself from this group. No clue as to why…) What does this actually mean for you? Well, I’m not totally sure, but you should probably stay away from Yahoo for a while. That’s my take on the situation.

Honestly though, I’d like to think that the community found some sort of fantasy success by reading through my drunken ramblings and d*ck jokes. And if you didn’t, well, based on our accuracy results, you probably did better than most, right? Haha, just kidding. All of our teams sucked complete and utter ass this year because 90% of the league’s players had season-ending injuries by Week 3. So maybe the secret is: ranking is totally easier when only 10% of the player pool is alive? Now there’s something to think about.

You’re welcome, all of you Statistic majors needing a thesis topic…

As I mentioned in last week’s rankings, this will be my last IDP post on Razzball for the foreseeable future. And fittingly, the only people it really applies to are the die hard IDP fans that are reading a weekly rankings article during Week 17. If your league is still holding it’s championship this week, I strongly urge you to change that next year. However, this year you’re in luck because no team looks to be resting its starters. So unless you lost guys like Eric Weddle or Barry Church last week, you’re most likely good to go with your typical starters again in Week 17.

So without further ado, here are my final rankings of 2015. Happy New Year everyone, and good luck with your championship games!

That’s right folks, while we still have actual football for the next month, our fantasy season has come to a close. I’d like to thank all of our contributors who did an awesome job this season, and of course, thank you the readers for joining us on this trip of discovery. While it feels like we only “discovered” injuries and that the Browns still suck, I’d like to think it was a little Toy Story 3-esque, ya know, holding hands as we fall down a furnace. In this case the furnace is Dez Bryant’s season, but hey, it’s football. Crazy things happen. I mean, the Falcons used to be 6-0. LOL. Anyhow, thanks for a great season everyone. We’ll be sure to continue our rankings throughout the NFL playoffs for your consumption. (Don’t actually eat your screen of choice while reading that.) And we’ll have choice content during the offseason to keep you grounded while Fantasy Baseball combs over the land. Interesting metaphor usage, but whatevs.

Thanks everyone!

I apologize for my absence the last two weeks. I had some major final exams and they kicked me in the ass. I am a better human after finishing it however; I have not seen natural light from the sun in 20 days. The doctor told me I had to wear sunglasses at all times until yesterday; the worst experience to be forced to look like a hipster. Story time! This guy from Greece, let’s call him Pat, bought a five-step ladder in Canada and had it sent to him in Greece. Because he is smart, he fell of the small ladder and subsequently sued the manufacturer and the store that sold it to him because he felt it had two defects: defective material and no warning labels. Experts deemed the ladder perfectly made and the judge told Pat that because an adult of average intelligence would know how to handle himself on said ladder there is no need for warning signs. In addition to this there are glue stains where the warning signs were, so also ripped them off. This man was then given criminal time and had to pay punitive damages. Fraud = bad. Don’t be this guy.
