So unless you’ve been dead and have recently been resurrected and for some reason felt the first thing you should do was come to our website, you’d have a good idea on how I feel about these two quarterbacks. Oh and thanks for the support! We are big fans of the Zombie community. You all have put out some really quality movies. All that said, I’ve been a strong proponent of Robert Griffin, III and a huge worry wart about Andrew Luck for 2012 fantasy football. My reasoning is fairly simple: RGIII will add value with his legs as he’s not a pure pocket passer. Meanwhile, there’s not going to be much of a pocket for Luck to pass from this year in my mind. He’s coming from the same team that broke Peyton Manning for a season. Now granted, the Redskins O-line isn’t the greatest either but RGIII should be athletic enough to make his bad situation palatable. I don’t know if I can say the same for Luck. But with that all said, the draft will always decide which guy is the best one to draft based on value and currently, the best value between the two has to be Luck.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yeah, it’s a bit late in the season to be telling you about sleepers, I know. I’m also a bit late to the party to maybe put you in the know before everyone else. It’s also too late to tell you not to have eaten 5 chili cheese dogs. Now your wife has parked you on the couch for the night and you reek of onions…among other things. With all that said, it’s time we take a look at a deep call and see why Kendall Hunter will bring the thunder this season. Off-Rhymes! Hrm, something seems missing…I know what it is! I haven’t interrupted myself to tell you about other cool Razzball things. The first reminder is that we have at least one more league open as of this typing for the 2012 Razzball Football Commenter Leagues and you can win some pretty sweet swag as the grand champion. My second reminder is that Razzball went BIG and got to be a part of an interview of Maurice Jones-Drew and Brent Celek. Our resident lady’s man and all around cool guy Tehol Beddict – aka LT aka a young, pre-crazy Tom Cruise – got to be a part of the action and represented Razzball like a boss. Check him out here before you dive into the sleeping Hunter. And with that, away we go to what may be the final sleeper post of 2012. Unless of course I feel like throwing one at you on Wednesday after everyone has drafted. I’m kinda ruthless like that, don’t put it past me. Now on with the show!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The final preseason installment of the Fantasy Flatliners is for yet another entire team to avoid. This time it’s the New York Jets and the team is all-around worthless.
You have to start at quarterback when thinking about the putrid stench coming off the Jets.Please, blog, may I have some more?
In our third Razzball Football Podcast, host Nick Capozzi interviews Sean Salisbury, former NFL QB and ESPN Analyst. With QBs drafted higher in fantasy drafts than ever before, Sean weighs in on the quarterback position these days and how it’s changed since his time at USC and in the pros.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We at Razzball know and understand the wide world of the internet can be a scary place. It’s full of misinformation, bald Britney Spears pics and flat out lies. We also know that no matter how much we try, we are never going to be able to provide you with every piece of information you need. To help you navigate the triple-dubya, we’ve linked up with Goose from the FantasyRundown to get you to the right places when it comes to helping you win your fantasy football league.Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know where this story goes. It’s scary when it happens to you or your friends. Scarier than that Johnny Depp movie ‘The Ninth Gate’. And when I say that movie was scary, I mean it was scary bad. I hope Depp fired his agent after that one.Please, blog, may I have some more?
While my wife and I were going through the newspaper this morning, clipping out coupons for our trip to the store, I thought to myself ‘I really need to work on my openings for articles. This is really just embarrassing for everyone’. My second thought was ‘I should write up a post that explores some value plays in a yahoo league this year…and eyebrows need waxing. Hope we have a coupon for that’. Now as much as I’d love to give you value plays at every position, I just can’t. Tight Ends are either going well over their ADP or they’re right in line so you’re just gonna have to make do with what I got. What this will tell us is what their average draft pick has been so let us take a peek under the hood over in the yahoo drafting arena. At this point, I think we can all agree that rankings aren’t going to tell us where the value lies. Oh and why yahoo, you ask? Because we’re doing what is called The Razzball Commenter Leagues and we’re using yahoo for them. If you’re up for playing, click on that last link to find out more and then click on this link to find the next great football stadium treat. Mmmm, tasty!Please, blog, may I have some more?
So I figured rather than hinting that I had updated my Overall Rankings for 2012 Fantasy Football, I’d give you a brief synopsis of what has transpired. I also figured I would compete for the Guiness World Record for longest post title about an updated ranking while I was at it. Yeah, it’s not a real category but when it is I’m a freaking shoo-in to win. Basically, Doug Martin snuck into my fantasy football heart once it was clear he would have a clear shot to be the RB1 there. You may not notice it in the overall rankings but he’s now in my top 20 for Running Backs, much to the chagrin of Shonn Greene. Meanwhile, Cedric Benson is slowly creeping up my RB ranks much to MY chagrin. Also as I mentioned in my morning post, I’m not budging on Peyton Manning at this point. Don’t hate him, just think there’s no reason to take a risk at Quarterback this year in a standard 10 team one QB league.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Were still in preseason mode so the main news we should be covering is who got hurt and who is seizing control of a position battle. Let’s start with the boo boos, shall we? Matthew Stafford injured his non-throwing hand against Oakland when he hit it on an opposing player’s helmet. Though the injury is deemed not serious at this juncture, it’s a good reminder that Stafford has had issues staying healthy in the past. While his 2011 season was an extremely successful one, it was also his first year in which he didn’t miss a game. Yahoo currently has him ranked 16th and as the 5th quarterback overall to be taken. Now I don’t disagree with them as he is still relatively young and his first couple of years in the league the Lions offensive line was a mess so I don’t want to call him injury prone just yet. Heck, I have him higher in my own rankings so I might just be a hypocrite. However, I do think it’s important we note Michael Vick going 50th overall because of his injury history. I’m not saying Apples to Apples here – even though I really like that game – but ask any 2011 Vick owner how their season went and you might need to slap an R-rating on that conversation.

Kevin Smith - Had himself his own scare Saturday with what at first was rumored to be a high ankle sprain. Thankfully, the results came back negative but lets all hope this is a motivator for him to lose some weight. Or at the very least apologize for Jersey Girl.Please, blog, may I have some more?
