Yeah, this time it’s Tehol’s fault I veered into the political realm, but the good news is, we don’t spend too much time addressing the elephant in the room, aka Rome burning, but we did have a plethora of NFL news to talk about, including the story that broke during the recording sesh, which was Brandin Cooks being traded to the Patriots. The Brock Osweiler trade to the Browns, along with Alshon Jeffery, Kirk Cousins, and Danny Woodhead are all bantered about with Zach, Matt Bowe, and Tehol. Along with a story from Zach about how Tehol stalks him with an auto-tuned rapper. Or something. I already forgot his name, but he dresses like Prince, but without the immense talent to project sex appeal in such garments. And we finally talk about the OA finale and start the hype train on Game of Thrones. Choo choo! (I sexually identify as a train during these times.) Here’s the newest Razzcast, with bonus technical difficulties towards the end of the cast, because #productionvalue!Please, blog, may I have some more?
All the season-long projections you could ever want. A kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Now that we are long past the Super Bowl, it’s established on our newest show that there’s quite the depressingly large gap (that’s what she said) from now until the next officially scheduled NFL event: the Draft. Zach, Matt, Tehol, and I go over some preliminary thoughts on what’s in store, What will the Browns do? Who’s going to trade up? Trade down… sideways even! After that, we finally get to talk about our newest episodic focus by talking about episodes 1-4 of The OA (24:00 minute mark for those who don’t want spoilers). Slight teaser, we dig it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
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!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Since we used all of our creative juices titling last week’s Razzcast as our “Super Bowl Episode”, it would seem apt that we would double-down on said creativeness (art me!) by making this the official “Post Super Bowl Episode”. We rock, we know… MB, Zach, and Tehol join me in discussing our own Super Bowl experiences, and make sure to separate the line between the Patriots and Patriot fandom. Let’s just say it’s a big bold line that seems to not meet all that much. That is to say, we praise the team while condemning a majority of the fanbase. I call that being a philanthropist, but whatever. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Spoiler alert! We talk about the Super Bowl and nothing much else really. Because what else is there to talk about this week? I mean, there’s still a lot to talk about in general, but why talk about that when you can default to football? That’s what we think too! We’re so a like, maybe we should date. Call me, listeners… But yeah, Matt, Alex, Tehol, and myself go over the matchup, the storylines, and who we’re exactly rooting for, which is a harder task than we thought. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, not really, and the real winners (prize winners) will be revealed after the jump, (even though we announced the winner on our podcast), but I just want to send a shout out to everyone involved before we hit the big Super Bowl weekend. So thanks to all the Razzball contributors who hosted a league, to all of you Razzball readers who hosted a league, and, of course, to all of you Razzballers who joined and played in our league. The Razzball Commentator Leagues are a unique feature that are almost the greatest things in the world. I mean, as long as we have boobs and beer, finishing third ain’t too bad. This “universal” league brings the community together, and sure, yeah, while you’re trying to destroy each other with Aaron Rodgers and Le’Veon Bell, I’d still like to think we’re doing it out of love and togetherness (is that a word?). I look forward to building on our numbers next year (while also improving our content covering these leagues, something that we’ve had issues with, admittedly), and look forward to bigger and better prizes as well. In the mean time, let us recognize the 2016 Razzball Commentator League Prize Winners…Please, blog, may I have some more?

Coincidence that with the return of Tehol we also return to the worst production value ever? I think not. Matthew Bowe (pronounced Bowie, which was a riveting podcast revelation and assault to phonetics) joined the Lord Beddict and myself in going over Championship weekend… sorta-kinda. Sorta-kinda: the official Razzball ethos. Some other stuff was discussed, but none of it was important, just how we like it. The OA was touched upon briefly (no spoilers, just general show discussion), I finally gave the full recommendation to go see La La Land after forgetting to do so the last few episodes, and we actually watched the new Blade Runner 2049 trailer (which you can watch after the jump), because that’s what you do when you have a podcast. YOU. WATCH. THINGS. While this is probably the worst Razzcast ever, it also might be the best. We’ll let you decide!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we officially enter into the malaise portion of the fantasy offseason, which usually lasts around 20 years until around the NFL Draft, what better way to kick things off than to address the Chargers moving roughly 80 miles up north to the sometimes-great city of Los Angeles? My thoughts as a Chargers fan my stun you, but only because I’m one of the twelve left rooting for them. With Matt and Alex, we talk last week’s Wild Card week and the upcoming games in the Divisional Playoffs, and we do it all while Matt builds another hazmat suit. This time 100% more effective… at making background noise. Enjoy our newest episode, with a bonus behind-the-scenes ending that settles once and for all why Matt needs to stop building hazmat suits…
Also, we make a special mention of this year’s 2016 RCL Champion, and to be quite honest, we can’t figure out how they did it. So congrats, we’ll have a post out soon announcing the team and other winners along with their prizes!Please, blog, may I have some more?
