It seems to happen every year. Ok, it’s now happened for two straight years at least but that’s NFL years. In human years, that’s more akin to 13. But back to the scoop, DeAngelo Williams has gone from fantasy flatliner to fantasy freak all over again when the last 4 weeks arrive.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well here we are; week 17, the last coup de grace for a few of you, and for others, the Holy Grail of eternal survival and a suicide championship belt. For many of us (me included), the year ended early with a bucket full of shame.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Bet the Farm is Razzball’s weekly wagering column. Josh Carey and Zorboss compete against your picks in the comments. The rules?
- You start off with $1,000 (and can start playing along in the comments any time you want – even now)
- Every bet must be an increment of $10 up to your full bankroll ($1,000 or maybe more)
- You can bet on the over/under or spread for any NFL game (Yahoo Sports’ Odds page is a good place to pick your lines)
- Win, add $9 to your total for every $10 bet (you have to beat the rake).
With the season over for a majority of people, we decided to look back and construct another team based on how the year went.
This team is made up of studs with ADP of 100 or greater. Without further delay, let’s meet the team.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Is your league still going in week 17? I’m not quite sure what to make of that quite honestly. On one hand I want to denounce you and watch my chicken viciously peck at your children, and on the other hand, can I, Tehol Beddict, fantasy writer extraordinaire, really blame you for wanting to extend fantasy football another week? Fantasy football is fantastic, maybe even better than pure columbian blow(that may be going too far), but some will state it unwise that your league is set up to play when numerous teams are usually set up to play meaningless games. When I say that the games are meaningless, I mean that a few of your fantasy stud muffins may be riding the pine this week in preparation for the playoffs. Talk to your league manager about it. When I say talk, I mean take him in a dark room and stroke him/her with a couple blows to the kidneys while sporting brass knuckles. Nothing like going into a title game having to start the likes of Harry Douglas. Either way, you get another Beddict post, and being that I am the Razzball fantasy football champion, how can you not heed my advice? You almost have no choice at this point. So, no matter that I don’t agree with your league set up. Just win Baby.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sure, everyone likes top shelf. Whether it’s the tequila or the vodka or my grandpappy’s moonshine, we all wanna live like we’re in a Nickelback video without looking like Chad Kroeger and without having to actually listen to Nickelback. But not all of us can afford top shelf…hrm, could that be because we are constantly pumping money into gambling on football?Please, blog, may I have some more?

Congratulations to Moffitt Divers (Cracklin’ Brats), your 2012 RAZZBALL COMMENTER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!!! The Divers set the pace in the regular season, finishing at 13-1, and continued their winning ways in the playoffs, defeating Hot Sauce by 7 in an exciting final.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It started off as a simple idea. We thought to ourselves ‘man, we have a lot of writers this year. Why don’t we all start a league together? Wouldn’t that be fun?’. And then a few weeks passed. And then a few more. And then a week before the season started we thought to ourselves ‘man, we have a lot of writers this year. Why don’t we all start a league together? Wouldn’t that be fun?’. Only the second time we followed through and in the end, twelve Razzball writers entered the yahoo league and only one left the victor. For your reading pleasure, we bring to you the Razzball Writers League that was, in their own words…Please, blog, may I have some more?
So you’re in a fantasy league that plays all 17 weeks huh? That can always be rough for the teams whose early round picks are resting comfortably on the bench because their playoff seed is locked up. Thankfully, this year there are fewer of those players than there typically are in week 17, but there are still plenty of concerns.Please, blog, may I have some more?
