Draft season is upon us! Jay’s rankings are released, but in addition, a few of the other writers, myself included, are going to put out our Top-200 Rankings for your enjoyment… and sometimes anger.  I’m unveiling my rankings a little bit further down this page, but that’s not all, Zach and Tehol will be revealing their Top-200 Rankings as well in the coming days.  This is what you’re here for right? It’s not for our sexy words that flow like poetry throughout the preseason. Of course not! You want to know who is ahead of who on one simple click.  Nobody has time for anything else! And after the rankings I’ll go over some players of note!

Take me on in the Razzball Commenter Leagues for a chance at prizes! Join here!

THE ZACH ATTACK IS BACK! Zach returns from Ireland full of takes on what is going on in the football world.  We talk about Ezekiel Elliot’s suspension, the Sammy Watkins trade, the Jordan Matthews trade, Jay Cutler’s signing, and Leonard Fournette’s foot.  We close out the show by discussing some draft strategy, including, but not limited to, the no running back strategy.

This is it, I’ve reached the end of my half of the Razzball Division previews with the rest coming from Zach.  It’s been quite a journey researching the NFC for the upcoming season.  It was great going through all of the players that have disappointed me in the past and still loving them for this year and vice versa. Now, I feel somewhat ready to start my rankings for 2017.  Within a week, I will put out my top 200 for the season and I will also put out a top 100 IDP players post as well.  We’re reaching the home stretch of the NFL offseason, but we still have a lot to cover over here at Razzball.  Without further ado, let’s get to the Starks of the NFC North.

Viz joins the normal crew for a “RazzLit” episode, which could be the new name because Jay LOVES it.  Along with the occasional “your mom” joke or a “that’s what she said”, Jay has really taking a liking to the millennial vernacular it seems.

Viz tells us about what he has in store for two of the fastest growing fantasy sports, Basketball and Hockey, this upcoming season.  Luckily for Razzball, we have some of the best fantasy sports advice for literally any fantasy sport that you want to play.

Viz tells us why he wasn’t in on this Game of Thrones season up until this past episode, which by the way, was easily one of the best in it’s 70+ episode run.  We talk about the Starks and also the crazy battle that took place setting the tone for the final three episodes of the season.  Finally, we wrap up a short episode (but it’s the motion in the ocean that counts), by talking about RCL leagues.  SIGN UP, BEAT TEHOL, WIN AWESOME PRIZES.

IDP leagues have been around for years.  More and more leagues are gravitating towards them as people look for something different. At Razzball, we are embracing IDP this season as well.  Jay recently announced that Razzball will be including IDP slots in RCL lineups as a replacement for kickers and D/ST slots.  This is such a great and exciting way to replace the two least exciting spots in our fantasy football lineups. To keep things interesting, we will have 1 spot for a defensive lineman, 1 spot for a linebacker, and one spot for a defensive back.  Not only are we replacing the boring positions, but we are adding another starting spot.  Some of you may be unfamiliar with IDP as a whole.  Some of you may not know how to value an IDP position or strategize these spots in your draft.  I think I can help give you a few pointers.  As somebody who has been playing in leagues with 1-9 IDP spots for the last five years, I have pointers for people who are familiar with IDP as well.

By definition, a “dark horse” is a little-known thing that emerges to prominence.  You can’t call the Tennessee Titans a dark horse, it’s a cop out.  We all know they have the weapons to snag a wild card spot if they aren’t able to surpass the Texans this year.  They added weapons on offense, such as Eric Decker and Corey Davis, and they were able to sign Jurell Casey to a long term contract.

I am joined once again by the boss man and his not-so-secret lover, Tehol.  Tehol and I talk about the Miami Dolphins quarterback situation and why it’s absurd that Kaepernick hasn’t been signed yet.  After that, Jay dives into what we can expect this upcoming year from the RCL leagues.  Tune in to find out the major changes in rosters that we have in store this year before Jay opens up the leagues on Monday! We then move on to Game of Thrones with plenty of spoilers including a deep dive into the past two episodes. Enjoy!

Ever since Jim Harbaugh left for Michigan to chase Ohio State in the Big Ten, the NFC West has been a tale of two teams.  The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals have traded blows over the past few seasons to represent the West with a home playoff game.  This season is business as usual for the Seahawks.  Seattle continues to reload while getting healthy where they were shorthanded the prior season.  The Cardinals are becoming more of a question mark as Father Time creeps in on offensive weapons that Bruce Arians depends on.

The once left for dead San Francisco 49ers are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel by bringing in John Lynch to be the GM.  Many questioned this tactic until we all witnessed him fleece the Chicago Bears on live television in the most one-sided trade that I can remember.  While we as fantasy team owners know to turn our noses this season, there are a few pieces in place to keep an eye on for the future.  Who knows, maybe there in a 2017 break out star on the 49ers.  We witnessed the magic that Kyle Shanahan can brew up last season with the Falcons.  The Rams changed head coaches but did little else to garner any attention after a disaster-ridden offensive season in 2016.

Football season has started the same way for the last two seasons for me.  I spend a weekend in July binge watching Last Chance U.  If you haven’t seen this masterpiece, it’s a Hard Knocks style show that follows a season of the best college football team that you’ve never heard of, East Mississippi Community College.  This football program, led by controversial head coach Buddy Stephens, snatches up a lot of the highly recruited SEC players who have been kicked off of their respective programs for failed drug tests, bad grades, and violent behavior.  Whether these guys deserve a second chance is up to the viewer to decide, but I dare you not to get sucked into this show about a team in Mississippi trying to win its fourth national title in six years…

An introduction to a gentleman who needs no introduction…. He’s a staff writer at NFL.com, a writer at footballguys.com, and the creator of Reception Perception and Back Yard Banter. Matt Harmon joins me for a solid 40-minute conversation about wide receivers, weight loss, and his love/hate relationship with the Carolina Panthers.

Zach joins me for a few minutes at the end of the episode to talk about a wild couple of days in news and what else we have in store for our readers and listeners in the coming weeks!

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did…
