2013 RCL FootballThe 2013 RCL season has come to its triumphant close.  What a year it’s been!  At one point I had an 8-0 team, no team got to 10-0, and the parity had the overall champion go down to the championship week.  Thanks again to everyone for joining this year, and we look forward to having you again for RCL Football in 2014!  You can check out the full interactive 2013 RCL Standings, fully updated with the final standings, in the tab up under “Leagues” that shows you how you stacked up against your Razzball competitors in everyone’s attempt at RCL glory.

RCL Top Scorer2013 RCL CHAMPION: But it was no attempt for Gtoxitis, whom we all hail as RCL champion!  Gtox brought the smack and backed it up in The Shadynastys league, winning the championship by a mere 6 points after a 12-2 regular season.  The fantastic finish for Jamaal Charles led Gtox to RCL glory and the best team in the land.  I’ll contact you through your commenter e-mail for your prize and your name will forever be enshrined in the RCL mantle.  2013 – the year of Gtoxitis!

I know what you’re thinking… The last week?  The last LSD of the season?  But unfortunately, it is the last of the Last Second Decisions, as I am officially retiring from fantasy football after this season.  It’s been an absolutely incredible ride the past three years fielding the last minute questions, three years of Last Second Decisions, helping out with Team Previews, RCLs, a couple Daily Recaps, everything that makes Razzball be Razzball.  Good news is Sky is gonna keep Razzball Football the best in the biz heading into next year, while I focus everything on Razzball Basketball to bring you the hoops hardware.  Or the hoops scissors.  As in cutting down the net.  Don’t run with them!  Again, it couldn’t have been a happier ride, and if you have any Fantasy NBA teams, be sure to keep up with us on basketball through the rest of the NBA season!

It’s here.  Finally.  The Finale.  The big tamale.  The Carne Asiata.

The ginormous 2013 Fantasy Football Millionaire Grand Final is this weekend, where the overall winner is going to win a million bucks.  A thousand thousands.  A million… ones…  Imagine making it rain that much, Pacman!  In a futile attempt all year, I unfortunately did not win a satellite ticket into the tourney, so I’m playing in a cheapy and not in line for the million.  But hopefully you have enough to enter the contest or have won any of the several satellites to get in there.  And if a member of Razzball Nation becomes a millionaire, maybe you buy me a couple crown and cokes?  Yup, I’m gonna be “one of those” if you’re a winner!

2013 RCL Football Razzball Nation!  The semis are in the books, and it all comes down to the championship.  Unless, of course, you lost by 10 in the Writer’s League because someone just happened to have Justin Tucker…  Bitter!  Public service announcement, the standings won’t be updated until the playoffs have completed, and the grand champion will be announced after Christmas, probably December 27.  Yes, even Razzball gets some Holiday time off!  You can still check out the full interactive 2013-2014 RCL Standings tab up under “Leagues” that shows you how you stacked up against your Razzball competitors before the playoffs in your quest for an RCL title.

2013 is [mostly] in the books!  And it’s our final episode of the year.  Instead of sapping up for the finals, we decide to end on an optimistic fashion forward note where we mock the first 2 rounds of the 2014 draft.  And I have to say, it got pretty crazy in there.  Nick mocked me, I mocked Nick, I apparently made a joke JayWrong made last week.  It was a mess!  Can you tell we drank away our playoff losing sorrows with egg nog and gin?  A lot of uncertainty will make next year’s draft a lot of fun, and probably nothing close to the lunacy we went through today… If you’re in the finals, good luck in getting that championship and I hope everyone had a fantastic 2013 season!

Razzball Nation!  I’m filling in for Sky this morning in the football recap, as Sky was called by Al Davis for a possible CB job opening.  That would be scary for multiple reasons!  Man Oakland was brutal.  Long live the Chiefs offense!  Jamaal Charles had a historic game (6th highest fantasy output in non-PPR since 1960), making the Raiders D look worse than some of those Raiders costumes.  The real Rocky Horror Picture Show was the pass D, as JC Superstar enlightened fantasy owners with 8 catches (on 8 targets) for 195 yards and 4 TDs.  Plus an extra 20 on the ground with a score there.  Straight video game numbers!  “RB screen, X, X, X!”  Actually that sounds like a porn title.  I’ll have to ask Tehol about that one.  Charles has been effing fantastic this year, and I think easily the fantasy MVP.  Sure you could argue Peyton Manning, but if you have JC and you’re somehow not waltzing through the playoffs than you only have yourself to blame!  Is he fantasy’s #1 pick next year?  I don’t see how you could resist.  If someone really wanted Adrian Peterson, I’d turn to them after that pick ala the 1,000-year old dude in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and go “he chose poorly…”  While some teams had their dreams melt away, others are marching into the finals with the rest of the week 15 happenings…

Ahhhh the throes of December… The playoffs are here!  Or if you’re in a 6-team playoff league, then you’re still alive!  Because I doubt you’d be reading otherwise…  The playoffs are all about the hot team at the right time.  I mean, look at the Giants for Pete sake.  Or is it Pete’s sake?  Who is Pete?  Texas Pete?

Last week I told you about my playoff strategy – it’s the same as any other week.  Award winning analysis!  But seriously, it’s fantasy football and you have your line-up and you’re leaning one way or another.  It’s just as important to win week 2 as it is to win this week.  Well maybe not really, but you’re still fielding whoever you feel best and I don’t think you tinker just based on “this guy has been better most of the year and got me here…” or any of that hoopla.  But if you do have any coin flips or any of the late season injuries plaguing the league, I’ve got some LSD for ya!

Ohhhh man, the playoffs have started and that means we’re only one week out from the huge MILLIONAIRE GRAND FINAL (!!) which is week 16 (not 17! which it used to be…) on December 22nd.  Christmas comes early this year!  I’m still without a ticket that I’m trying to pick up for $2, but I’m out there again, trying to nab my ticket in the $2 Qualifier.  There are of course all sorts of other satellite qualifiers you can hop into, but you need to hurry as the finale is only one week out!

2013 RCL Football Another week of RCL action is in the books!  And whilst my teams fall apart faster than a Jenga tower at a vertigo clinic, the RCL title is wide open!  You can check out the full interactive 2013-2014 RCL Standings tab up under “Leagues” that shows you how you’re stacking up against your Razzball competitors in your journey to RCL glory.

 

RCL Top ScorerTOP SCORER: The talk of the Cowtown!  RCL top scorer this week went to the Cowtown Russellers, who racked up 207.16 points in the Bobby Boucher’s Water Bottle league as a statement win to close out their regular season heading into a #2 playoff seed.  Huge games from Josh Gordon, Jamaal Charles, Charles Clay, and the utter special teams beat down KC put up on the Washington football squad moved Cowtown to 10-4 and the most points in the league.  Cowtown will need to beat the Gridiron Gangastas to get into the league finals, while #1 seed Dougie Fresh’s Team is heading into the playoffs off a sub-100 point week and a loss.  They’ll need to turn it around against the D-Town Stompers to meet the winner of Cowtown and Gridiron.  Good luck in your semi round, and congrats again to Cowtown!

Razzball Nation!  The Razzball pod is back with Nick, Jay and I all together at once for a fuller house than when the Olsen twins got old enough to be annoying.  But we’re such a happy family in the DraftKings.com studio!  I might bad mouth Nick a little by the water cooler, but that’s because he doesn’t let me gloat all over him about David Wilson!  Then again, Jay and I recap our own terrible hits and misses along before we recap a few upside plays we like for week 15.  I hope you survived the wintery blizzards and good luck in the playoffs!
