There’s not much to say besides the fact that all of us who are still around are in a must-win state. We’ve had a great year trying to help you make those oh so important roster decisions (at least according to the metrics out there), so I hope to continue the trend as your fantasy football championship gets closer and closer.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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…Please, blog, may I have some more?

“Alexa, what’s the weather like in Buffalo?” “Look outside moron.”
The great leader has spoken and global warming has been confirmed a hoax. I mean, with this much cold weather, how can the Earth be warming? It’s like, if the ice is melting, just get out the bourbon and more ice and enjoy the free air conditioning, maaaan. And if it is snow (prove it!), that’s fine too. I mean, if we can’t have the Game of Thrones premier until next summer, then lets bring it right to Buffalo, am I right? It just makes so much sense, kinda like how Ian Eagle should do play-by-play for porn. But if it isn’t snow (believe it!), we must accept that it’s either massive amounts of cocaine (settle down Michael Irvin, settle down) or the salt of dried tears from all the Julio Jones and Melvin Gordon owners out there. It’s okay, it’s totally normal to end your Fantasy Season like this. I read that on Facebook, the bastion of legitimate news, so I know it’s true. But don’t worry, if you’re looking for a distraction in a post-fantasy football world, or you need something to do the next four years, keep in mind that anything can be a dildo if you’re brave enough…Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re into the second week of the Fantasy Football playoffs (at least, for most of you) and there’s really not much else to say. Last week was essentially our last week of regular season content, and things will get just a bit tad lonelier around these parts. Much like my parts! But that’s okay! At this point, rankings are about the only important aspect that we all need to focus on. And everyone has their own way of interpreting rankings… It’s pretty much a straight-forward exercise there could be in game; a numerical ranking of players that are completely without context, in a vacuum if you’ve seen the term. So remember to add that context yourself. The rankings are there to help guide your starts and sits, but it doesn’t take into account your opponent. Nor does it consider the ceiling or floor of your players, simply the median. So do keep those things in mind, and in addition, I want to add that this is the main reason why each and every Razzball contributor is happy to answer any and all questions from you guys, at any point in the season. To give that “context”. So I guess what I’m saying is… can I context you bro?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to the very last Beyond the Numbers! of the year and also one of the most important. I, and everyone here at Razzball, have put in our best efforts this week to get you closer towards your goal of making the fantasy Super Bowl. Sorry I had to go with another overused Blount pun as the title, but I spent too much time reviewing games to come up with a more clever one. Hell, I’ve been watching so much game tape my NFL Game Pass Replay asked me if I was a robot. To that, I of course sarcastically answered yes and it somehow let me continue watching. I guess my TV is also a robot and vouched for me or something. Let’s just say I definitely did my homework this week. There are way too many scary matchups to not be prepared. That and figuring out the value of injured players’ backups are the most crucial items on the docket. For fantasy owners in just about any situation in the playoffs, I got you covered.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s Deep Impact! This is the last week of our series, unfortunately, so best of luck any loyal readers lucky enough to make it into the playoffs. I’ll be here in the comments to help answer any of your questions for Week 14, and will be taking the playoff journey with you in five of my six leagues (including a first-round bye in the Razzball Writers League in which someone *cough* Jay *cough* gave me a measly C+ draft rating). It’s been a blast being a part of the Razzball team, I’ll keep navigating you through the deeper waters in seasons to come. If you have any questions in Weeks 15 or 16, you can find me on Twitter (@TheeAlexLee) or wandering between open mics in Philly. As we’ve done all season, let’s take a look at the 10% and under owned players, with one name in there above that threshold just for old times’ sake.Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you watched Monday Night’s game between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets, then you know what I’m talking about. The Jets have no fight left. We should have seen that performance coming, though. Early last week, it was reported that Darrelle Revis didn’t want to play anymore. A Revis confidant said, “He’s done. If he had his way, he’d be done right now. He doesn’t want to play anymore. He’s made a lot of money.” Revis is making $17 million this year, by far the highest mark on the team. When the supposed franchise player and leader is mailing it in, it’s tough for a team to show fight. Now, there are a ton of issues with the Jets that have led to their 3-9 record, so it’s not all on Revis, but that’s another article for another day. The point is that at this stage of the season, many players are making “business decisions” and vacation plans on the field. The Jets are a prime team to stream against.Please, blog, may I have some more?
