Welcome to the Razzball Streamer article. I’m going to keep the intro short tonight as I prepare for my debut podcast appearance with my fellow Razzballians.  We will talk about football, West World and perhaps even the debate, so be on the look out for that to come out.  We have had quite the week of running back injuries, surprise bye week torn ACLs, and other really weird stuff.  So we have plenty of streaming options which makes my job easy.  So let’s get right to it!

Don Who? I’m sorry Ms. Jackson, but no one knows your son. But that’s all about to change. Eddie Lacy is expected to miss several weeks due to an ankle injury, with the possibility of being put on IR. James Starks is expected to miss four weeks after undergoing meniscus surgery. The Packers had Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb taking snaps at running back. To show how dire the situation in Green Bay is, the Packers traded for Knile Davis, he of the career 3.3 average on 233 attempts.

So, who is Don Jackson?

It wasn’t exactly the worst week in the history of the universe, but it was quite average for both myself and Rudy. I actually think the opening sentence from the FantasyPros accuracy report, written by Bobby Sylvester, kind of surmises the strange week we just had:

In Week 6, we saw the #41 ranked RB for the week explode for over 200 yards, perhaps the worst starting quarterback in the NFL break one of Kurt Warner’s old records, and a brand new coordinator put all of his confidence behind Terrance West, leading to another breakout game.

Indeed, you had a top-10 that was pretty jumbled compared to past accuracy leaders. That being said, I’m very ecstatic that Razzball, despite all of that rankings wonkiness of Week 7, was represented at the number two overall spot by Tehol Beddict! Call it crazy, sure, but also call it well-deserved. The dude has been a rock here at Razzball Football for several years now, and someone who I consider more in touch with the “nuance” of football more than anyone here on the site, including myself. Basically, he’s a dog whisperer, but with football… and, you know, less dog abuse. The entire Razzball ranking “group” including myself, Tehol, and Rudy’s amazing Pigskinator look forward to having a strong Week 7, starting with my rankings after the jump…

As the title denotes, we talk Aaron Rodgers, we talk Westworld (starts at 47:00 to avoid spoilers), and we delve a little bit into what is an election season that needs to end very soon for all of our sanity. Jen, Zach, Tehol, and newcomer Matt Bowe (Unbreakable MB!) join in a discussion about how at this point, a meteor that starred in Armageddon could probably win the presidency in a landslide. But because my oratory skills were created out of pure magic and the essence of lilac, we were able to transition back into football and what actually happened to Kaepernick and what we can expect moving forward. The struggles of Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb were covered, along with Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, the recent Knile Davis trade, and as a final treat, we hearken back to our humble Game of Throne podcast roots and discuss a new heralded show from HBO; Westworld, mostly because SEO hits are becoming harder and harder to come by. Theories, characters, and a couple season predictions are made. Enjoy! (And as a bonus, we lost Tehol in the middle of the show, so I guarantee you’ll love at least half the show. Or, you know, the other half. But 50% will be golden.)

Note: Week 7 Rankings will be released later today!

Greetings! Oh how I wonder… will the Elder Gods bless me this week? Will they take the six pounds of Mexican schwag as a gift in place of my usual animal sacrifice, or will they rain piss down upon me as if they were R. Kelly (only if he had a full grown African elephant chonger) for not coming correct with some high-grade blueberry kush? Only time will tell, but what is time really anyway? Just a creative way of recording our meaningless existence on this earth as we build this fascinating technology-driven world, only for us to be eventually wiped out like the courageous dinosaurs before us, obliterated like krill being sucked up by a massive blue whale. Oh, to be young again. Building forts, playing General Chaos on Sega Genesis, catching frogs, measuring dick… And what is life now? Fantasy football?  Help me.

I am Lord Tehol Beddict and this is Disgrace/Delight! Take head!

Wow, did I just give the lede to Case Keenum? Based on points, the dude is barely a top twenty fantasy quarterback. On the season he has just seven touchdown passes in six games. I think Matt Ryan had six in one game. Ok, I know he didn’t, but some weeks it feels like he did. In his six games Keenum has thrown six completions to the opposing team. For those not as quick as others, that is what laymen would call an interception. It really seems that I am making a case against Keenum here, and the truth is, I am. I wouldn’t own him anywhere. I’d own Ryan Tannehill over Keenum. I’d probably own Ryan Fitzcraptrick over Keenum. Ok, maybe that’s not true, but you get the point. However, this post isn’t necessarily about who I’d own for the season. Instead, what I try to do here each week is to assemble a lineup using players sitting on the majority of waiver wires that would beat just about any lineup put in its path. Here’s this week’s selections. Or is it last week’s?

Well, we all saw that coming. We all knew the Miami Dolphins were going to smash the Pittsburgh Steelers, and we all knew that they were going to do so by riding Jay Ajayi and his 204 rushing yards and two touchdowns. We all knew that, even with Arian Foster coming back, Ajayi would get 25 carries and, oh, you know, rattle off 8.2 YPC on the day. We all knew Jay Ajayi, sent down from above by his Heavenly father to be the savior of the Dolphins in the fifth round of the NFL draft last year, was going to get more touches than any running back not named Terrance West, Ezekiel Elliott, Lamar Miller, or Melvin Gordon.

And, of course, we all knew that Spencer Ware was going to get 26 touches on 40 snaps to Jamaal Charles’s 11 on 15. This was the first time all year that many Jamaal Charles owners started him, as he was finally considered healthy enough for a full workload. So, of course, Ware dominated the snaps and touches. But we all knew that was going to happen. That’s what makes this so easy!

Now, if you are this far into the article and haven’t been able to detect the sarcasm, please stop reading. We cannot help you here. You have bigger problems than fantasy football, and you will not find the answers here. You will likely only find more questions and a Simpsons referenced forced into here somewhere (this one doesn’t count).

For the rest of you, we have work to do. This was another strange week for running backs, as I so subtly alluded to above, and we have a number of question marks at running back going forward.

And now, to the report…

Hey! Heeeeeeey! Put on your parachute pants, kids, it’s time to take a trip back to years gone by and reminisce of what used to be and what can be. But before you get carried away thinking I’m discussing something from the early 90’s (current Millennial fashion is bringing that back up quite enough), pump the brakes a bit once you get to 2010.

Pump the brakes. That’s what I need y’all to do for me. Just a little bit. Because, see, back in 2010 we saw a ‘breakout’ occur for the one Kenny Britt. What did that breakout entail? 73 targets in 12 games for a 42/775/9 line (18.5YPC) when playing for the Titans. I remember Britt then bring primed for further ascension into the upper echelon of WR tierdom before the 2011 season. However, if you didn’t pump the brake you were duped when he produced a 17/289/3 line in just 3 games. Which leads us to how you should work the waiver wire heading into Week 7 of the 2016 fantasy football season!

Your fantasy football team is a disaster. I know with these waiver wire recommendations we will make your team great again. These players are winners. With the help of these players your team will be winning again. I know the best players in the world. I know the good ones, I know the bad ones, I know the overrated ones. The San Francisco 49ers running back situation is a disaster. Carlos Hyde suffered a shoulder injury. Mike Davis is his replacement. Dion Lewis could return to practice this week. Don’t know what to do? Here’s advice from somebody with a very good brain that’s said a lot of things…

Welcome back, my loyal Horde. We are almost at the halfway point in the season and up until now, things have been pretty busy. Speaking of busy, wow, what an eventful week it has been this past week, right?. It seems that my Black Widow Curse was out in full force in Week 6 and I lost quite a few people, including my starting quarterback. Sorry Ben, nothing personal but at least now you know what it feels like to fall victim to something more powerful than you. Kind of like the co-eds you…oh, wait, I’m going to take the high road here (fill in the blanks if you will). I have to admit, by far, this is one of the worst Fantasy Football seasons I have ever been a part of, if not the worst. I can’t seem to pull a win out of anywhere (and believe me, I’ve tried). My booms are busts and my busts are busts. I am just heaving with such ample bust(s) (in more ways than one) that it’s a wonder that I can get anything done. Oh, the pains of loving something that completely abuses you every week and doesn’t love you back. Now I know how the men I have dated feel. But, it is what it is, and like some women, I am hoping to stay in this thing long enough to change things for the better, but we all know how that works out. I’m going to keep trying though. Not just for me, you see, but for all of you, my loving and trusting horde. Without you, I am still pretty amazing, but you give me some purpose. So, without further ado, let’s see what I can do to satisfy your weekly craving for me by giving you Hit it or Quit it, Week 7.
