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?
Unlike a real champion, I’m mad and not going to re-trace my steps for this awesome open I wrote. Friggin’ Word crashed when I went to save! Typical. It’s as if I was going against Matt Ryan, Roddy White, and Calvin Johnson last night. I just feel defeated. Let’s just get into my picks:
Here’s five guys not started in enough leagues and five guys started in too many leagues that should be benched, along with their % started in ESPN leagues and Yahoo leagues, respectively. And remember, these picks are not always suggestions for direct 1-for-1 swaps if you own players in both sections, but merely picks for guys not started enough and started too often.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The semis are here for fantasy football playoffs, and it’s the most interesting week of the year in my opinion. I don’t know why, but my most memorable stories seem to happen in the semis. Maybe it’s because I seem to lose in the championship more often than not…
There’s the big news that RGIII is officially out, meaning fantasy playoff teams lead by RGII are going to have to search for options either on their bench or on the wire, if their league can even have roster moves. Since RGIII has become such an integral part of winning fantasy rosters this year, it adds another part of the mystique to my favorite week of the year. Imagine making your championship with the story line, “The highest scoring fantasy player got hurt and I had to play Josh Freeman, yet I still won!”
My favorite story is still my cobbled together fantasy team from 2004 in my long time dynasty league, featuring Billy Volek, Drew Bennett and Derrick Mason on the Titans that went on a tear through the playoffs, especially in week 15 in the semis. Boy was my opponent mad. If you have any good stories share them below!Please, blog, may I have some more?

In a stunning late push in the Razzball Writer’s League, I was able to sneak into 6th place. And what do I get for my late season surge? A one-catch. 7-yard performance from Brandon Myers…

In many fantasy leagues, the playoffs start next week, making this the final regular season game and the final shot at hope for fringe teams. The last week of the regular season is the biggest week for me if I’m not a lock at the top – all the scenarios and following other matchups, needing this team to lose and that team to score less than 40 than me – it gets pretty hectic.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Just like the majestic Canadian Geese, Nick has migrated from up north to Florida for the Winter. Well not really, just for the week for a vacation.
Despite a fantasy diaspora, JB and Nick still get together to preview week 13 with JB’s Up and Down calls, including foreseeing another big game for the hot rookie Colin Kaepernick, a sleeper special alert with a Tennessee Titans receiver after a change for Tennessee’s offensive coordinator position, and yet another jab at Nick’s love for David Wilson, who may get actual work with Andre Brown out for the rest of the fantasy season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
