First of all, I don’t know what Zach is complaining about. He was given the two positions where players can make the biggest impact in fantasy football at the beginning of their careers. Leave it to such a millennial baby to complain about an opportunity to have his star truly shine. His complaining aside, Zach did a fantastic job previewing running backs and wide receivers, you can check it out here. Now it’s time to preview the quarterbacks and the tight ends we keep hearing and reading about for the 2017 NFL draft.

Fantasy impact is pretty tough to project without first knowing the landing spot of a prospect. So I’ll write about skill sets and best or worst fits for each of these players. After checking out this article, you can look forward to Zach’s first-round mock draft that he has longed to write up since he started blowing our minds with fantasy football knowledge. In the next couple of weeks, I’m going to put out a review of the actual landing spots for our fantasy relevant rookies…

Free agency is one of my favorite parts of football.  This is probably because my favorite team never seems to be in the playoffs so I guess it gives me a false sense of hope going into the next season.  A couple of needs get fulfilled with players that I haven’t seen play in the Buccaneer’s system and all of a sudden I can argue them into the playoffs in my head.  The Jaguars also always look like they’ve built a dangerous roster in the offseason, and then we remember by week 2 that Blake Bortles is still the quarterback.

Free agency answers a lot of questions for fantasy football as well.  Every year, the beginning of March changes the destiny of at least a few players that might be question marks in keeper leagues. Just because the player takes the biggest check doesn’t mean that they are putting themselves in the best position to put up their best possible individual numbers.  I’m going to do my best to decipher the first week of signings and trades right here.  This was a busier year than last year for the skill positions as far as I remember, so if I forget someone you wanted to read about, forgive me.  Let’s get started with one of the fastest players in football…

Welcome to my way too earlier top 100 fantasy football rankings. Doing this in March is not only fun for Zach and me, but it also builds a base for our rankings going forward as things, both large and small, inevitably happen throughout the offseason. I picked five players after the rankings list that I wanted to highlight further. Feel free to hop in the comment section and tell me how you feel.

Just like that, the offseason is upon us.  Another football season has been wasted with the Patriots winning another super bowl.  I’m just kidding, I’m not going to be that guy who hates a team for winning too many championships.  I don’t need that karma in my life, after all I am a Cubs fan and I am hoping to celebrate the next five world series championships.

I am devastated by the results from a gambling point of view.  After a fantastic 7-3 record against the spread throughout the postseason, I pushed all of my chips towards the Atlanta Falcons money line and it would have been very profitable. The result ended up being my most heartbreaking gambling loss of my so far, young life.

Now it’s time to put that in the past.  The future is now.  Zach and I are the future.  My cohort and myself are going to grind week in and week out to bring you the most useful fantasy relevant draft coverage that we can.  Non-fantasy relevant information will also be shared because we are going to do our best to cover every team.  So, without further ado, let’s continue with a little preview. We are going to review the 2016 seasons of the 16 bottom finishers in the NFL last season.  I will tell you of any GM or coaching changes that I am aware of and I will do my best to cover draft rumors and positional needs.

Welcome back to the Razzball streamer article.  For most of you still reading this article, you’ve made it to the semi-finals, congratulations. If you didn’t make the semi-finals and you are reading this, you are probably my editor (Sup, Jay). A key running back injury and a lingering wide receiver injury has led to me recommending more than just defenses this week.  So let’s get down to business with our second to last I Scream, You Stream of the 2016 season.

It’s playoff time! I personally can’t wait to get my hopes up and get them crushed in the four leagues that I made the playoffs in this season.  We are going to skip quarterbacks this week because if you made the playoffs, you probably don’t need a streaming quarterback. (I feel like I am the only person who has to stream a quarterback this week.)  In a 16-team league, I rolled the dice by drafting Blake Bortles.  Aside from being the worst quarterback to start 12 games of the regular season in our generation (don’t @ me), the Jaguars play the Vikings this week.  The backup that I ended up drafting was none other than Ryan Fitzpatrick. I also drafted Todd Gurley in the first round in this league.  I bet you wouldn’t believe me when I tell you that this shit show ended up 8-5.  Well it’s true, and I’ll be streaming Alex Smith this week, and feel lucky to be able to do so with the matchup against Oakland.  So in the spirit of holiday giving, I’m going to give you a few good defensive plays for this week…

Welcome back to the Razzball streamer article. I hope you didn’t miss me too much last week and had a great Thanksgiving, unless you felt too much genocidal guilt to celebrate.  The Cleveland Browns finally get to not lose this week, and that makes for a more difficult pick ‘em pool.  This just goes to show you, even if you are never successful, you could still earn a week vacation. Never give up.  Before we get to streamers, make sure that you check out the football podcast this week if you are into Westworld.  A few of us at Razzball have some takes that we need to get off of our chest, so be on the look-out for that.  Now let’s get down to business.

Welcome to the Razzball streamer article!  I’m coming to you live from my brand new laptop, and let me tell you, compared to my old lap top, it’s incredible.  I feel like I went from a Ford Fiesta to a Tesla.  So I know that I have expressed my annoyance in the past with Cris Collinsworth and how he commentates on Sunday Night Football.  That will never happen again…

Welcome to the Razzball streamer article.  It has certainly been a week of surprise and self-reflection for all of us.  Whether you’re happy about the result of the election or not, it’s time for us to focus on things that we can change, our fantasy football lineups! The bye weeks continue to roll in/ and it’s been my job to help you with those fill-ins.  I hope you have found my weekly findings helpful as I’ve been lucky enough nail at least two players per week lately, usually at least one quarterback and one defense.  I was definitely disappointed that I missed out on the San Diego Chargers this past week though.  (I overlooked Mariota’s turnover tendencies.)  If I happen to overlook a player that you may like and I missed it, feel free to ask me in the comments section.  Let’s get to this week’s plays…

world-series

Welcome to the Razzball Streamer series… I am writing this a day later than usual because Game 7 of the World Series had me too stressed yesterday.  I’ve been a Cubs fan since a kid, one of my favorite memories from when I was young was seeing Sammy Sosa hit a game changing home run in the 7th inning against the Diamondbacks while me and my dad cheered from seats down the 3rd baseline at Wrigley Field.  Last year, we went to a couple Cubs games at Miller Park in early August when they were in the heat of the Wild Card race.

Nothing compares to last night.  I wasn’t within a 300 mile radius of Cleveland, but the energy at my house was unreal.  I got to watch it unfold with my wife, my dad, my kid, and a couple of my good friends.  It is still surreal that I cared about baseball in November.  I’m 28 years old and can’t imagine what it was like for fans twice or three times my age to finally see the Cubs win the World Series.  I guess it is just nice to be in the winner’s circle for once.  I’ve never been in a better mood.  So I’ll try and pass you these good vibes with some good streamers for Week 9!
