As I’ve been alluding to in some past content, or peppering, if you will, and I might, because steak, the projections, like winter, were coming. There is no more alluding anymore folks. DEATH TO ALL ALLUSIONS. Because someone once told me that time is a flat circle. Everything we’ve done or will do, we’re going to do over and over again. Alright-alright-alright. In this regard, I wouldn’t mind if this day kept repeating itself. Because of steak, the end of allusions, and the 2014 Fantasy Football Projections are here. Could use more boobs though. I’ll look into that. (Life story bro.)

Note: I’d like to thank Rudy, for whom this would not be possible. I’m just going to assume dark wizardry was involved, and just keep my mouth shut. I shall sacrifice several Twix bars in your honor!

I am very happy to introduce Razzball’s 2014 Fantasy Football Projections

Please, blog, may I have some more?

Yes, it happened. And even though these games don’t mean anything, this epic showdown was hyped as “Harbowl 3”, letting us know that the terrorists, in fact, have won. But if there’s anything the NFL is good at, it’s hype. And also having zero self-awareness. That also tops the list. So the hype-train arrived with much fanfare last night, which is why we got to watch Denver fans boo the sh*t out of the team that destroyed them in the Super Bowl. But for fantasy, is there anything to be gleaned here in the first set of preseason games? What is gleaning, is the question here. GLEAN ME, right? Oh yes, I shall glean you. So the answer? Probably not much. And if you watch Patriot preseason games, nothing. For example, I could say that Jay Gruden’s usage of Roy Helu against the Patriots was notable, especially for PPR formats (something I actually believe). But is that usage a function of the games not counting? And what do we make of long-sustaining drives, like the first drive the Ravens had? Does it tell us their offensive line looks better and they have a more cohesive unit overall, or is it just rust and the first time these players are live-tackling? There are just way too many unknowns here, and so really the only thing that you should monitor are injuries and Brandon Weeden sightings. Just kidding on that last one. You should actually monitor your alcohol intake. Or maybe that’s just me.

Two much eliteness going on here. (See what I did?)

Welcome to another strategy session. While probably not as good as a pizza session, we’re gonna get darn close, because today, of all days, we are going to go over two-quarterback leagues. Because having Tony Romo lead your team to playoff aspirations until November rolls around and he removes the clutch from your car is not enough. Nope. We need to add the potential to both have Tony Romo and Eli Manning on the same fantasy team, which I heard is the 18th sign of the end of the world. Obama was the 16th and 17th sign on the list, if you were wondering. Yes, that’s right, two-quarterback leagues are really-really different, I can’t stress that enough. Which is why you got two really’s. Everything you know about standard and PPR formats gets thrown out the window, as you’ll see the aforementioned Tony Romo be drafted ahead of Dez Bryant in most leagues. That’s a cup of crazy, as they would say. Actually, they wouldn’t say that… I don’t think anyone has ever said that. So let’s get you primed for what is going to be the weirdest draft you’ve ever been a part of. Unless it was a salamanders in your shoes draft. That would probably top this one.

2014 Rankings: Top-200 | Top-200 (Half-PPR) |  Top-200 (PPR) | QB | RB | RB (PPR)| WR | WR (PPR) | TE | TE (PPR) | K | DST | IDP Rankings: Top-100 | DL | DB | LB

Well, we’re here. Where is here you might ask? How very existentialist of you. I’m not sure if they call this “Draft Month”, but that’s what it is. And so I’ve taken all of my rankings and gone through them with a fine-tooth comb to bring you an updated list. Really, this achievement was pretty miraculous, seeing as how a comb really doesn’t help me do anything when dragging it across my computer screen. That being said, with the completion of my 2014 Fantasy Football Projections (release is imminent, that’s what she said), I was able to get a better picture of the ranking landscape, which probably still needs a koi pond and more shrubbery. Anyhow, everything could use a good tune-up once and while, sorta like your mother, so without further ado, here is the *Updated* 2014 Razzball Fantasy Football Rankings for Standard and PPR leagues…

Please, blog, may I have some more?

2014 Rankings: Top-200 | Top-200 (Half-PPR) |  Top-200 (PPR) | QB | RB | RB (PPR)| WR | WR (PPR) | TE | TE (PPR) | K | DST | IDP Rankings: Top-100 | DL | DB | LB

So, much has been said of the delay of the Half-PPR rankings, or at least I think much has been said. I’m not a mind-reader folks. But I’m going to assume you’ve been talking amongst yourselves, and the main topic has been how I’m bringing sexy back. Because I am. The other topic, more minor, is about the lack of Half-PPR rankings, seeing as how, ya know, it’s the format this year’s Free Fantasy Football Razzball Commentator Leagues (Sign-up here!) use. But guess what? As I’m sure the title spoiled it, we have rankings. Though, it’s a lot cruder than your used too. There’s still an issue with some sort of thing… a lot of it is technical, and is like a bunch of Star Trek mumbo jumbo mixed with Skynet and wheat  bread… none of which I understand, nor will I ever understand. So just fire those phasers at something, amiright? But yeah, just between you and me, those technical hurdles still remain, so like the Olympics athletes that we are (which we really aren’t), we’re going to have take one for the team here and realize that this format for which I am presenting the Half-PPR rankings is going to have to make due, for at least a little while. That is to say, the format that you are used to receiving these rankings is unavailable from our friends over at FantasyPros, but I’ll make sure to update everything as new things come to light. Something like that. Because I am against dark. But not really. This makes no sense.

Well, if you’ve been living under a rock since March, I don’t know what to tell you… just take this Apartment Guide, since you need proper shelter. Also, you probably missed out on the news that Razzball Radio (Nick Capozzi) and company are getting into a Mercedes Sprinter Van and sprinting (see what I did there?) around the country, hosting 32 Fantasy Football Drafts, in 32 NFL Cities, all in 32 days. Thus, the #32in32in32 slogan. The hashtag apparently invokes legitimacy, so take that illegitimacy! Anyhow, the tour begins tonight in lovely Seattle (one of my old stomping grounds, as I’m a proud Seattle University alum, even though none of you have ever heard of the school, including myself). I lived there for close to 10 years amidst my west coast city rotation in my “younger” years (let’s call them my twenties), and the experience forever changed my life. For example, when someone says Dick’s, I think of hamburgers. Not a sporting goods store or the bathing suit area kind. Sometimes R.A. Dickey flashes for a bit, but that’s more my fault. Anyhow, taking a break from the sentimental rainbow that just appeared, be sure to head on over if you’re in the northwest and meet Nick, Tehol, Sky, and the Guru later tonight! Details after the jump…

Also my hungry face.

This is it folks. We won’t go a week without some sort of football activity until the end of Super Bowl XLVIII, uh, plus some JVJLGH’s, and maybe some more LLIFJ’s. Could use more X’s. Like 80. I’m not sure what Roman numerals are or what they do, but I think that’s right. BUT OH MY GOD FOOTBALL IS BACK, and though it’s only a NFL Hall of Fame Game, which means it’ll have as much excitement as a Patriots preseason game, at this point, I’ll take anything.

What, I told them to match my hair with my smile…

As touched upon briefly and legally (I think, you never know with touching) in the post calling Montee Ball overrated, it dawned on me that Ryan Mathews still remains underrated, and he probably shouldn’t be. Here’s the specific quote about Mathews:

“Let’s not forget about Ryan Mathews, who also had these same issues (ball security and pass protection), and it took him three seasons to emerge into last year’s career breakout. It may be an apples/oranges comparison because of the injuries Mathews suffered, probably slowing his development, but it can’t be denied that there were specific game-plan decisions from 2010-2012 based on his weaknesses. And I’m sure there was a fruit basket involved somewhere. Needs more mango if you ask me. And may I add that these years also led to the amazing discovery that Ronnie Brown was actually still alive. Who knew?”

To further elaborate on those 2010-2012 years, even a homeristic (this word exists spell check, I swear!) fan like myself couldn’t bring myself to believe in Mathews. We are, in fact, talking about a back who had more broken more collarbones than touchdowns in 2012. Which, actually, now that I think about it, is pretty impressive. Add with the previously mentioned issues of ball security and pass protection, along with the  fact that he had only one season in his career where he rushed for 1,000 yards, and missed 10 games in those three years…. well, even as one of the 57 Chargers fans (138 when the surf is low), I just couldn’t buy in at all for 2013.

I only hold hands when I hold balls. Totally makes sense.

It has been pointed out that in my 2014 Fantasy Football Rankings, Montee Ball ranks quite lower than that of my peers. And while my first argument for this would be: gravity, bro (get it?), there are still many question marks here that prevent me from fully believing, kind of like Scientology. But less-less crazy and with more of Peyton Manning‘s forehead. And, sure, it’s easy to point out that the Broncos offense remains elite from last season’s historic run, which certainly played a large role in Knowshon Moreno‘s gaudy totals. And it should be noted, in that environment, Ball was able to average 4.7 yards-per-carry for the season (5.9 YPG in the final two months). But there are some things still holding me back. But don’t worry, I’m still the big spoon in this scenario. We can all rest easy friends.
