So Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith held hands on the plane on their way to the rookie symposium and cuddled afterward. Or so my sources say. Other than that there really hasn’t been much news on the labor front which is a lot better than it used to be when the sides were complaining, posturing, lawyering and pretty much making complete and utter asses out of themselves.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Draftmaster 83 was a fantasy football draft party of epic Biblical proportions. It rocked the very foundation of how fantasy footballers think about their draft picks. The Earth shook, volcanoes erupted, flash floods took over the landscape…wait a minute…I think someone spiked my drink. This was one hell of a party, Jim! Jim Day is known as @Fantazytaz on that Twitter thing-a-ma-jig if you’d like to get in on a Draftmaster party. As you can see, it’s quite the experience. I’ll try not to break any lamps or throw up on anything next time, Jim. Sorry about that. Oh, and don’t worry about that thing in your trunk. It’s nothing.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good day Razzballers. Here is some news you can use and abuse. Well, don’t abuse it, that’ll just lead to resentment and you’ll end up hating each other!
Is the lockout nearing the end? Good question nameless NFL fan. It’s hard to decipher what is really going down, but the news continues to be more positive than a month ago.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re continuing on with our analysis of the Experts Draftmaster 83 draft here at Razzball. I was involved in this little shindig which makes it more fun for me. If you like to do fun fantasy football things like I do, get in touch with Jim Day on Twitter (@Fantasytaz). He’s the go-to guy for the Draftmaster madness. Before we continue, you should probably read Part I of the Draftmaster 83 analysis first. Yeah, that’s a good idea. Glad I thought of it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Recently I was asked to take part in an Experts Draftmaster fantasy football draft with 11 fellow fantasy football writers/experts. Since writing about fantasy football is what I do, I’m going to write about it if it’s all the same to you. I’m not sure what the expression “if it’s all the same to you” even means, but it seemed to fit right there. If you’ve yet to get involved in a Draftmaster draft, get in touch with Jim Day on Twitter (@Fantasytaz) and he’ll get you all signed up. They’re a lot of fun and give you a chance to hone your drafting skills.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Dynasty rankings are looking forward and reflect how I think a player will perform for the next 3-5 years. Age is a major factor in these rankings.
1. Chris Johnson (9/23/85)
2. Arian Foster (8/24/86)
3. Jamaal Charles (12/27/86)
4. Lesean McCoy (7/12/88)
5. Ray Rice (1/22/87)
6. Adrian Peterson (3/21/85)
7. Maurice Jones-Drew (3/23/85)
8. Darren McFadden (8/27/87)
9. Rashard Mendenhall (6/19/87)
10. Mark Ingram (12/21/89)
There’s not much difference between the top 6 running backs. You can make a case for anybody in the top 6 to be the #1 pick but I like to go with the sure thing when I’m drafting that high. I need to see one more year out of Foster before I move him to the #1 spot. I love Charles and McCoy in PPR leagues and they will put up Brian Westbrook type numbers for the next 5 years. The only question mark I have about them is if they can handle the workload. Rice is a very safe pick after the top 4 and his value will increase if he is able to land the goal line work. I’m not as high on AP as most people are. He has a ton of wear and tear on his legs dating back to college and his running style leaves him susceptible to big hits. MJD is only 26 and doesn’t have the usual amount of wear and tear as most running backs his age. McFadden is risky due to his injury history but he has all the talent to be a top 5 RB for the next 5 years. I would wait until the 2nd round to take him though. Mendenhall is a workhorse and is in a great situation in Pittsburgh. He just needs to put a muzzle on his twitter account. Ingram landed in the perfect situation in New Orleans and will be a lock for double digit TD’s in the Saints high powered offense.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Most fourth round NFL draft selections go relatively unnoticed by fantasy footballers. In fact most rookies regardless of what round they’re drafted in take a while to make any major NFL impact. But as I continue my search for those elusive diamonds in the fantasy rough, I’ve stumbled upon a rookie that has a good shot to make some noise this year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
