I know we have football starting pretty early tomorrow, and since we’ll all either be cooking, eating, and napping (or all of them at once, like me!), here are your Thanksgiving Day rankings a bit earlier than usual… (Happy Holidays everyone!)

Special Note: I just wanted to mention that our very own Tehol Beddict has been absolutely incredible the past month with his calls. A fourth place finish in Week 10 was followed up by a number one overall finish in Week 11. Be sure to check out his rankings here! And as always, if you need the hard data (hey baby) and projections, be sure to check out Rudy’s Pigskinator!

Granted, there are many times when the lede’s topic is about the Sunday Night Football game, but sometimes I like to shake things up a bit. If only because there some really annoying things about it, ranging from Cris Collinsworth not taking a vacation in Syria, to the lazy, league approved narratives for everything, all the way to being reminded that NBC’s dramas are still being made. So sometimes, I just need a breather, ya know? And plus, if there’s an opportunity to make fun of the a Jeff Fisher led team, you know I’m going to take it, no questions asked. If you’re new to the site, I’ll give you a brief synopsis of my own personal feelings towards Fisher. You know how the words “winless” and “undefeated” exist? There should be a word for “being two games under .500”, and I think that word should be: JeffFisher. Here, let’s put it in a sentence: “People keep saying that Todd Gurley is regressing to the JeffFisher, but I really just think it’s because the offense is sh*t.” And now we have the first career game from Jared Goff, and it looked about as bad as we were expecting. And I gotta tell you, I lived in Los Angeles for almost five years… this is not the best way to grow a fan base. Not only is Fisher challenging the patience of Rams fans, but also men’s hair fashions. And also my ability to come up with a third thing, but I think you get the point…

With playoffs just a mere few weeks away (your mileage may vary), here are some things I’m doing to prepare my team for the next few weeks. First, handcuff all of your starting running backs. I mean, I wouldn’t drop, say, Jeremy Hill just so I can pickup Alfred Blue, but if you have Rashad Jennings on your bench, it might make some sense to grab Bilal Powell if you’re a Forte owner. Again, the situation varies with every league and format, but hopefully this will give some context. (Also, if you don’t have any handcuffs readily available on the wire, pick up someone else’s or even seek out trades with teams still in it if there wasn’t a deadline.) Actually, now that I think of it, something I also will be doing is looking at the rest of the season’s schedule and if I have room on the roster, looking at ideal matchups for quarterbacks and DSTs. I usually argue against holding two of either on a roster, but as we get further in the season, there’s a lot of factors that make this relevant. First, every point counts, so you have to maximize the fullest potential that your roster can offer. Second, it never hurts having a backup plan ready to go just in case. And this works both ways. I’d look at all the teams trying to make the playoffs and see if they have any depth issues or unfavorable matchup issues, and make a preemptive buy on a player you might not need, but could help them in their final push. Otherwise, just stay the course, now is the time to be the opposite of cute. Like your mother. Try to put the best team out there today and next week, if you see some potential risk/reward type decisions, I would try to find a balance. Get a floor you’re comfortable with first, and then start thinking about risk. And as always, everyone here at Razz is happy to help!

With the world still absorbing the results of this last election (or at least trying, it’s kinda like dry heaving for a week straight), I did need to make one last statement before moving on from all of this… whatever it is, only because of some of the messages and comments we’ve received here at Razz through social media and on the site require a response. I would have probably stayed quiet if it was just me, but I have noticed some vitriol from both sides seeping to my writers, so I made a semi-short statement on the pod before launching into our football discussion. (And I won’t do this again, at least in this form or manner.) And because we recorded at such a strange time (because of Tehol and his busy schedule, probably pimping), we were able to talk a bit on recent injury news: Gronk not travelling to Frisco, what we can expect from Doug Martin and Dion Lewis. And we also discuss Jared Goff’s arrival and what it all means before we address all the strange hate Aaron Rodgers has been receiving. I mean, I just want to hate him for Randall Cobb… why does everyone else have to ruin that for me? Russell Wilson and Cam Newton are talked about, along with a potential Grey drop-in for one of our future shows. So enjoy! (Unless you’re a #MAGA, thenfeel free to send the hate in right direction this time: Jay@Razzball.com or @jaywrong.)

Well, that was an average result. And you know what they say about being average. I do :( Despite the lackadaisical results in Week 10, I’m proud to hoist Tehol up, as he finished fourth overall out of all experts last week. He would say it’s the “Elder Gods” will, but I think it’s more in line with his unending fantasy football knowledge and prowess. And that’s just another example of Tehol’s humble ways. Haha, okay, that one is definitely a stretch…

Here are your Week 11 Rankings!

National Football League, we’ve got a lot of problems with you, and now you’re going to hear about it. In no particular order, when did the NFC North become the new AFC South? With the NFC East being a pretty good division again, does that mean I have to start wearing my 90’s flannel shirts? And should we all get concussions? Afterall, according to you, it’s not just a concussion, it’s a cancussion. Why is it, that amidst your “Salute to Service” Sunday, that you don’t mention that the taxpayers fund all the lavish patriotism we see every Sunday? What is a catch? It’s like the only thing that’s ever stayed a controversy in football since I was a kid. That, and John Elway probably being a secret horse in disguise. In fact, here was the first official NFL rules committee meeting to define what exactly a catch was. But most of all (just in the context of yesterday, because why trap yourself, ya know?), I’m so confused on how the Seahawks actually won. (Note: It’s weird to watch a game where you end up screaming in agony when anything good happens for either team.) Admittedly, I’m not so much confused on how they actually won, that’s pretty straightforward; it was some combination of an overrated New England defense getting exposed, mixed with big nights from Russell Wilson (25/37, 348 YDS, 9.4 AVG, 3 TD, 124.6 RTG and 3 CAR, 6 YDS) and C.J. Prosise (17 CAR, 66 YDS, 3.9 AVG, 10 LONG and 7 REC, 87 YDS, 12.4 AVG, 38 LONG, 7 TGTS). But how the Seahawks could win in such a karmaic (word?) fashion… I mean, talk about sh*tty calls for the last four plays of the game, almost seems familiar. Almost like it’s happened before… And I’m sure the Boston media will have a field day talking about how the “non-call” on Gronk was a crime against humanity, a genocide they’ll say! Well, if he didn’t do such a great job blocking into the endzone on a run play to Blount that should have been the call, they might have had a case. In the mean time, I wouldn’t worry to much about Patriots “nation” forming a protest to go against the result, mainly because they probably think “genocide” has something to do with the Jets…

Well, after that barn burner on Thursday Night Football, I’m not sure the NFL can live up to my expectations. I mean, it’s not every week when you get to watch a team journey about 2,000 leagues under rock bottom, but the Browns appear to be the hero we need, not the one we deserve. And if your levels of misanthrope and despondence are running low, the Bears against the Bucs, Rams versus the Jets, and Texans at the Jags have got you covered. There are some interesting games today though, if you’re into that sort of thing (really?) with the Cowboys visiting Pittsburgh and a Super Bowl rematch between the Seahawks and Patriots. There probably won’t be any mistaken calls at the goal line involving Marshawn Lynch, but never underestimate Seattle’s offense to not ef things up. They’ve become quite good at it, and I’m quite sure that Bill Belichick has noticed, while also trolling all the Dion Lewis fantasy owners out there. Just chewing gum and walking at the same time I suppose. Though, this is coming from a guy who endorsed a Cheetos Puff for president, so I’ll consider anything he says as “dubious” for now.

Razzball had another strong week of results, with Tehol doing really well with Quarterbacks, above average in Running Backs and Kickers, and Rudy with Pigskinator ended up nailing the best rankings for Russell Wilson and Mike Wallace and was first overall for tight ends. If there was any other time to do well, this is it with the playoffs coming up soon. Myself, Rudy, and Tehol all hope that Razzball can help take you to the championship, and we’re going to be doing our best to do so until the end of time. END. OF. TIME. Like Highlander. Without all the decapitation.  Alright, enough of the generic (?) sales pitch, let’s get to your Week 10 Rankings!

As the title let slyly by, the election is over. Thank god it’s over. I mean, it’s really all over guys. Hope you didn’t love this world, because ohhhhh-ver. Kidding (MAYBE). I live in a blue state, am a “white-ish” male (half is enough!), that works from home, so a Trump Presidency doesn’t affect me. Add a few more shades of brown or a pu**y to grab, well then, the next four years might have been a bit different. And in the pod, we quickly give our take on what it all means maaaan, from a Clinton supporter (yes, I was with her), a luke-warmish Trump supporter (Unbreakable MB), and a Libertarian supporter (Tehol, because of course) who did the resting-Librarian, which is another way of saying he didn’t vote. After just a short six minutes of cordial discussion (that’s what she said), we quickly pivoted to talking football, going over San Diego’s voting no on their stadium referendum, what exactly is going on with the running back situations in Tampa Bay and Seattle, and what we can expect from Ty Montgomery and Dion Lewis going forward along with other topics. Jordan Howard was mentioned, I know that. And then we just kinda decide to stop talking, since Tehol and I aren’t fully caught up with Westworld. What can I say, we have the best endings… (A lot of people are saying it.)

Look, it was either that or “Lockett the Vote”… The world could end later today, and then who’s going to ever know we watched a Monday Night Football game where stuff actually happened? I mean, there were first downs and touchdowns and remarkable levels of referee derp, it felt as if we watched “football” on a weekday for the very first time. You know, like the Madonna song. And while the broadcast served as a strong example of needing a national day of reflection on banning all political ads, both the Seahawks and Bills stepped up, showing everyone that two competing entities can come together and agree on something. In this case, it was agreeing not to play any defense. But if two teams can do that, maybe there is hope for us all… (so no matter what you believe and where you want us to go, you should #vote!)
