The below chart is not there to give you seizures, but to hopefully help you, not disable you. I am a fan of Football Outsiders’ method of evaluating defenses called DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average). Instead of just taking the total number of yards given up on the ground or through the air, they look at situations and results. Certain situations are valued more than others. If a running back gains 5 yards on 3rd and 4 it is more detrimental to the defense than if he runs for 5 yards on 3rd and 20.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mike Bell of, maybe this Denver RB will rush for 1500 yards because he’s in the “system” fame, rushed 10 times for 100 yards and a TD. After the game Brees insinuated that Bell could see more touches which would give about 5 touches per game per Saints offensive player.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Many of us play in leagues where kick and punt return yards count for fake points that could translate into real money or a false sense of happiness. But how much stake do you put into return ability? Last year many jacked Devin Hester’s value up thinking that since he was becoming a bigger part of the offense, coupled with the insane return numbers he had the year before, he would be a monster in return yardage leagues. Well, as you know Hester’s production fell mightily with the additional wide receiver duties he had to hold in. I know how that feels, umph. So there is a balance between offensive production and return production. There are very few #1 RB’s or WR’s who also produce top 10 return numbers. Only three of the top 10 kick returners were also offensive threats, but still not starters: Darren Sproles, Jerious Norwood and Leon Washington. Four of the top 10 punt returners were threats: Johnnie Lee Higgins, DeSean Jackson, Leon Washington, and Reggie Bush.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I wish we all could live in a fantasy vacuum. You know, something that you might see on Pee Wee’s Playhouse, but we can’t. Players get hurt. Players suck. A player becomes poor and struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Baron von Brett Aloysius Bannister Joaquin Favre the Third held court and found the Vikings worthy of his Hall of Fame interceptions. When asked to comment, that crazy Vikings’ super fan said, “Favrgrrr . . . rghhh,” and then ate a puppy. Favre’s aged arm gave out on him last season and his numbers gave out as well. As I’ve written before, I am a fan of Sage “Brush” Rosenfels “TX,” but he’s out and Favor is in. This should help most of the fantasy prospects of the Vikings, at least until Brett’s arm flops off his torso and shimmies down a Metrodome drainage pipe. He is worthy of a backup QB position, but don’t get all sentimental and start him against any defense that can catch the ball.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We at Razzball realize that exporting our views across the country has damaging consequences on the blogosphere. To help make amends, we are reaching out to leading team blogs and featuring their locally blogged answers to pressing 2009 fantasy football questions regarding their team. We feel this approach will be fresher, more sustainable, and require less energy consumption (for us anyway).

I know you’ve been waiting for these rankings like a sixteen year old girl camped out in line for New Moon tickets. So here you go! Wait, I skipped all of these words and all I see is 11 through 50! Hold your mini donkeys Broseph the top ten are right here (no you just missed them, back there under that yellow “here.”) This is the word set down from high into a burning when he pees Reggie Bush who I visited on my pilgrimage to Mardi Gras, don’t ask. Reggie told me he would twist or sprain or tweak something awful bad and that Peyton Manning raises and fights kittens for sport. You heard it here first Mike Florio!Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you are lucky enough to get a top spot in the draft, there is not much thought going into your first selection. Got the first overall pick? You’re taking Adrian Peterson all day. Second or third? You’ve got Jones-Drew, Forte, Turner, or even Tomlinson or Steven Jackson if they’re your type. There are plenty of options that you really can’t go wrong with. But someone also has to draft last. Some might see that they got the 12 spot, and immediately think their season is done. How are you supposed to build a championship contender with the last pick?Please, blog, may I have some more?
If Michael Turner could face the Lions defense every game he would have passed Walter Payton by now. It became apparent last year that Turner might break out when he destroyed the Lions on opening day rushing for 220 yards on 22 attempts and scoring 2 touchdowns on the twenty second Sunday of 2222 after the 222nd cycle of the .Please, blog, may I have some more?
