Even though I’m not one to pat myself on the back (actually, I am), Razzball has been on an upward curve, bringing some sort of conglomerate synergistic metamorphosis (as they say in the corporate world), providing you an ever-improving ranking accuracy year after year. How do we do it? No clue. It could be dark wizardry. It could be indigestion. It could even be your mother. But I have to admit, this year is going to be daunting, if only because the expectations we’ve placed on ourselves here at Razzball Football are at an all time high (just like my college years). Going from 31st overall to 22nd in Weekly Fantasy Football accuracy is one thing. But going from 22nd to the top 10 in the entire nation last season is quite another. And then on top of that, to finish third overall in our Draft Rankings last year… well, it’d be folly to try and say “Yes, we’re going to try even more, (more better if you believe in remedial English)”, but yeah, I’m going to say it… We’re going to do more better. (My English teacher just placed a bounty on me.) With that said, and my parentheses key broken, here are your 2017 Fantasy Football Tight End Dynasty Rankings

    Rico Gathers.
    Make him your last pick this year.

    here’s a question. thus far my 12 team 2 QB half PPR (where i need RB badly) has gone fournette/mccaff/watson/nixon/lynch. i’m going from your recent rookies post and and
    i’d assume by my turn at 12 ross/c.davis/williams/cook, likely mahomes gone (and i’d take mahomes IF he’s there)

    -probably at least 2/3 of the top rookie TE’s will be out there
    -probably most of perine/hunt/kamara will be out there
    – maybe trubisky or kizer will be out there (but maybe neither)

    is mahomes or best RB the answer here?
    2. what about gillislee for some reason yahoo is giving him a pretty good season projection and holy crap you have him 26th, so i guess this is agreed. ourlads hasn’t caught up yet and has him 3rd on depth chart.

    3. guessing you’d think at some point perine/hunt become starters? i see you have the 3 TE’s higher than perine and under, but hard to tell on dynasty ranking. again my RB are falling into backup status with ingram/woodhead/forte/mckinnon/ivory/mathews (start 2). i went and looked roster by roster to see if i have a good trade partner for my large and good WR surplus to trade for RB (jordy/k.allen/edelman/d-jax/decker/r.anderson/britt/treadwell (start 3 with 2 flexes)) and WOW, is RB a shit show. like 2 total teams have even 4 solid RB, and even in that instance they aren’t necessarily weak enough in WR to trade one away.

      Yeah, I like Mahomes a lot there. And yeah, I’m pretty high on Gillislee, though… it kinda concerns me that Yahoo agrees. Scary stuff. And I do, especially Hunt.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: very hard to believe mahomes is there in 7 picks, but i will PROBABLY have the gillislee vs perine and under rookies for RB’s.
        so it’s
        1. mahomes
        2. gillislee if mahomes gone
        the nitty gritty is if both are gone do i take one of the lesser QB’s OR best of the perine/hunt/kamara group at 12th? i’ll rule out TE as QB in a 2 QB and in my own case RB needs beat that.

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: cook and glennon just dropped, so outside chance of m.williams (injuries) being around in 5 picks, but my super deep WR situation probably takes me out of him.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: good god, can’t believe c.davis is around here.

            • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
              (link)

              @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: ok, c.davis (8th WOW), and hunt just went. only 2 more i gotta dodge.

                Damn, well, dodge like a champ!

                  @Jay: alas it’s not up to me, shame cause i was a great dodgeballer as a kid, wasn’t great at the throwing part of the game though, only average at the catching part. but i had the 5 D’s down pat.

          • Jay

            Jay says:

            If he’s there, could be a great pick up, for sure.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          Yeah, very good point, I wouldn’t expect him to be there either. I’d probably stick with non QB upside there.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @Jay: wow, perine went at 1.11 so i get mahomes. good news is RB is the easiest fix in the out of all positions, guys always come out of nowhere, really outside shot at gillislee at 2.12. and i’m pretty set back up with 3 QB’s too (longer term this time than the rodgers/rodfather/osweiler starting last year). more likely i’m picking one of the lesser rookie RB’s at 2.12. the ones i’m really not familiar with yet.

            • Jay

              Jay says:

              Yeah, seems like there’s a lot of names you mentioned there that I wouldn’t mind having.

              • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
                (link)

                @Jay: i’m also in talks with the guy at 2.5 for him to draft gillislee and trade me either of him or red dick for britt.

                  I like that for you.

    Love the site. How often can we expect the top 200 to be updated? Do you think Ajayi, Landry, and Parker’s stocks go up or down with smokin Joe Cutler at the helm?

      Thanks! At least once a week unless there’s a huge news item.

    keepers due oh so early in a few hours. 20 teamer with full IDP rosters. keep up to 30, i won this twice in a row now, so i have worst drafting spot every round. rush yards worth more than receiving full PPR. need to have at least 10 WAS players by start of season and during entire season. lost d-jax but thank god not cousins. 5 DL spots (which i CAN use to stash WAS players to make minimums)
    QB (1) cousins/goff (max 2 QB rule, you can have more IF they are from your own team name)
    RB (1) blount, AP, kelley, c.thompson, sims (and i’m likely cutting hightower/mckinnon)
    WR (2) d-jax/k.benjamin, doctson (also have gabriel/treadwell/agholor, but don’t know what to do, good camp news on agholor)
    TE (1) reed/brate
    flex (1)
    K WAS kicker
    LB (start 3, and these guys score a lot from tackles) kwon A/l.david/kendricks/burfict/d.bucannon (optimally i like having 5 of these, BUT i could trade one, and bucannon might start year on PUP). all of these are top 35 LB per fantasy pros rankings
    DT (2) AAron donald (1 by FP for DT)
    DE (2) c.heyward/c.campbell (DE’s 22 and 6)
    S (2) k.joseph/cravens (he’ll be starting now it looks like)/d.hall (he’s likely DL’d) (S’s 15 and 21)
    CB (2) breeland/x.rhodes (CB’s 2 and 14)
    clearly my WR were already weak, and my RB got weaker too, blount probably kept same value, AP is older and not a starter anymore, kelley might be losing a job, mckinnon 3rd string, sims seems to be ranked lower than he was before even with same competition for carries.
    1. my guess is due to the WAS nature of my team i HAVE to try to get perine at 20th overall? it’s extremely likely all higher ranked rookies on offense and some of the defense are gone by pick 20. in fact i’m no lock to get perine down there either

    my other WAS targets would be swearinger (S, ranked 38th S at FP) who’s starting now at WAS and even more so j.allen DT rookie at WAS (DT 11th at FP). also m.bryant wasn’t kept as he couldn’t be stashed last year, but he must’ve been dropped at END of year for some reason or i already would’ve stashed him. if i don’t get perine i probably have to grab j.allen (DT) to ensure i get a useful WAS player, PLUS i need a 2nd DT anyway.
    2. with this situation, what order would you drop agholor/treadwell/gabriel if at all? each year i’ve grabbed a top WR prospect (year 1, m.lee, 2 agholor, 3 treadwell AND doctson)
    . not waiting long enough on m.lee now he’s gone on another roster right when he blew up. it takes those guys 3-4 years sometimes. but hard to carry 3-4 of them the whole time.

      Jay says:

      Yeah, I like how Perine fits. Along with Allen, makes a lot of sense.

      And you have the right order there.

    for anybody doing really any kind of draft here’s the best ADP site i’ve ever seen, i found it last year when looking for a resource better suited to dynasty drafts, as the majority of fantasy pros ADP data comes from standard (mostly redraft i’m sure) leagues. as you’ll see when you look at it, it’s got shit tons of options, this is why it’s the best.

      Nice, thanks Joey! Good to see you around again!

  6. Steve Anus says:

    14 team PPR, start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 flex, 1 K, 2 LB, 2 DB, 1 DL. keep 2. obviously i have a.brown in the 4th (we can keep people from the round they were drafted at previous year, and it could go on indefinitely at that price, except we CANNOT keep anybody we drafted in the previous year in the first 2 rounds). my other options are
    decker (21st round, last round)
    parker (21st)
    ware (10th)
    diggs (5th)

    from the rankings i’m guessing this is parker.

      Jay says:

      Yeah, though Decker is tempting too. But Parker is your guy.
