Hello everyone! I say with great pleasure that we are launching a brand new show on the Razzball Football podcast feed: Razzblitz! Join myself and the always great Matt Bowe as we start off the first episode of the show! While we don’t quite have the looks of our fearless counterparts, Jay and Tehol (especially Tehol), we quickly dive into the latest news and notes from the football world, covering Ladarius Green’s release, LeGarrette Blount’s addition to the Eagles, and different backfield situations across the NFL. We then quickly go over my updated Top 100 rankings (article out shortly) to round out a pretty solid first episode. Enjoy!

Hello everyone!

The 2017 NFL Draft has been in the books for a while now, and here at Razzball we’ve already provided some great content recapping the draft in MB’s article and the Razzcast episode from Friday, but I wanted to provide a closer look at the draft from the running back perspective. The reason why I am choosing to do this is because they are the only position that is impacted in such a big way. Offensive lines are upgraded, flashy new rookies are drafted, and even important role players are selected each year that garners our attention. Sure, new information will come out between now and the start of the season in September, but it’s important now to analyze the information in front of us to start to gain an edge over the rest of your buddies in your fantasy leagues.

So let’s get to it!

Hello everyone, and welcome to another post in our 2017 NFL Draft Series! Currently it looks a little something like this:

2017 NFL Draft Series: Intro | Team Previews 1-16 | Team Previews 17-32 | QB and TE’s Preview | HB and WR’s Preview

It’s Draft Day you guys! Are you excited? I’m pretty excited! I think Matt might be excited! After a couple of months of podcasting and posting, we are coming down to the final two posts in our series! This year’s draft is shaping up to be a very exciting and eventful one, so enough chatter!

Let’s get to it!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the fourth article in our NFL Draft series! Here is a look at the other three to reference:

2017 NFL Draft Series: Intro | Team Previews 1-16 | Team Previews 17-32

I’m getting more and more excited as the days go by, as we are getting closer and closer to the first night of the draft, which is only a few weeks away! Like I mentioned up top, this is the fourth article in our series, keep your eyes peeled for MB’s article that will be out in the coming days, discussing Quarterbacks and Tight Ends of this year’s draft class.

“Well Zach,” you might say, “it seems like Matt got the better end of the deal here!” In this scenario, you would be right. Tweet at him. Let him know this isn’t right.

Alright, enough chatter. In this post, we’ll just review the best of the best at the two positions, looking at where they would best fit in potential teams, and what it all means for your drafts come fall.

Let’s get to it!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the third post in our Razzball 2017 NFL Draft series, following up my intro and MB’s great piece on the first 16 teams of the draft.

I’ll keep it short so we can dive right back in from where we last left off, but first, I’d like to apologize. I have been absolutely slammed in my numerous events outside of Razzball, but now I am back and ready to roll now more than ever! Today we’ll take a look at the teams picking at the bottom of the draft today, and analyze how their season and off-season acquisitions will effect their strategy come draft night.

Let’s get to it!

Hey everyone!

As each day goes on, MB and I will be going further and further in our NFL draft content, bringing you only the best as draft day draws closer and closer with each day passing. However, we are taking a short pause in the content to bring our look at the Top 100 for the upcoming 2017 season.

There has been a few notable changes in terms of franchise-tagging players, and different personnel changes that are definitely just beginning in what is going to be another crazy offseason. However, it is still great to have a slight idea of some players you were wrong about last year, but want to target this year, or even players you are still expecting to turn it around before it’s too late.

So, without further ado, here is a way too early look at the Top 100 for the upcoming 2017 season (standard scoring).

Hey everyone, it’s good to be back! After a short break since Week 15 of the regular season, I again will be doing some writing about the NFL Draft into the first couple months of the offseason. However, there is good news! Unlike last year, I won’t be doing this alone! I’ll be getting some help from my good buddy Matt Bowe (Unbreakable MB for those that don’t know)!

For those of you that have followed Matt and his excellent roster strategy series this past year covering streaming, you already know what your getting: great analysis that is short, sweet, and to the point. And for those that haven’t kept up with Matt this past year, you’re in for a treat. Matt is one of my personal favorite writers on this site, and I can’t wait for you guys to see our work. Speaking of our work, what should you guys expect for this series? Great question!

Hey everyone, and welcome to Week 15! The semifinals are upon us, and it certainly has been an interesting season thus far, so let’s continue with it, shall we?

Diving into the week ahead, we have a ton of tricky situations regarding the QB position, with a whole bunch of reliable names finding themselves in tricky matchups, and some guys that we usually wouldn’t consider to start for us in the semis now have some really good matchups. Names like Tyrod Taylor and Joe Flacco are these shakier players getting great opportunities to shine while reliable guys like Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and even Tom Brady find themselves in some sticky situations with some tricky matchups. So how do we navigate this?

Well, you could just go with the route most taken by others in similar situations, which is to just roll with your studs and get into the mindset that the rest of your team and your day will be good with a bad performance at QB. And that is certainly respectable. But I am offering another decision, which is to take a little bit of a risk, start the better option in a better situation, and reap the rewards. Yes, Tyrod Taylor should not instill the same level of confidence that Andrew Luck instills in some, however Taylor and Luck still are largely similar in one way: although Luck may be the better player, both he and Taylor are two of the 32 men that can play QB at an NFL level, and start. It’s not like Taylor is a pee-wee starter and has no idea how to win. They’ve won plenty before.

Before we get into the QB situation for Week 15, let’s get started with one of the most, if not the highest-powered offenses in the NFL, thanks in part to the hard works of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman…

Hello everyone, and welcome to the 14th installment of the Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em series. I’ll keep it short for you guys everyone, so welcome to the playoffs and let’s get started… With A.J. Green’s departure a few weeks ago due to a hamstring injury, certain players have had to pick up the slack from his lack of production values, and Eifert has done the most absorbing of this production value. His an increasing target share, snap counts, and even red zone efficiency, it’s no wonder why he is producing like the way he is. This week he’ll only have to battled with Brandon LaFell and the two running backs to get the targets and looks he deserves, but he’ll have a great matchup on the way, against a Cleveland Browns team that ranks as the 31st pass defense in the NFL, and 31st in the NFL against TE’s, who give up close to 65 yards and 0.8 TD’s per game. Fire him up with confidence…

Hello everyone, and welcome to another installment of our Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em series.

Hopefully all of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday full of great family, friends, food and hockey! Can’t you believe that the Canadiens clawed out another close win against Carolina, and now they are 15-4-2! If only they could start Carey Price every game…. oh, and the Cowboys are 10-1 I guess. I dunno.

We are now one week away from being one week away from the fantasy playoffs, and I hope most of you (hopefully all?) are looking good for some fantasy postseason action, and if you aren’t, hopefully you are close! And if you are at the bottom of your league… well, there is always next year.

I can definitely say that I have greatly enjoyed my time here at Razzball currently over these past two years, and I believe this is a direct result of how awesome some of these writers are here. One of which being my good friend Tehol. Over these past two weeks, Tehol has finished 4th and 2nd out of all of the other experts in the FantasyPros rankings challenge, and I want to give him some mad props for it. If you are feeling good about your team, double-check some of your crucial week-to-week decisions with the Lord himself to get the edge on your competition. You won’t regret it.

Alright, enough jabber. Let’s get to Week 12!
