If you’re like me (and let’s not kid yourself, you definitely want to be like me) over the last month you’ve probably heard all the fantasy advice clichés you can stand. You’ve ranked your players, you’ve tiered your positions, you’ve identified your sleepers, and you’ve done a silly number of mock drafts while at work, but now as draft day approaches you’re getting nervous.Please, blog, may I have some more?
There are a lot of football players in the NFL. So many that if you tried to fit them into a clown car you’d have to have a monster sized blender and even then I just don’t see it happening. So fitting 50 NFL players on this little screen was no small feat.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We at Razzball realize that exporting our views across the country has damaging consequences on the blogosphere. To help make amends, we are reaching out to leading team blogs and featuring their locally blogged answers to pressing 2009 fantasy football questions regarding their team.
I have no idea what that title is about, but I’m guessing it could be a reenactment of someone passing a kidney stone. Putting these tiers together wasn’t quite that hard, but I’ll pretend that it was. These 2009 PPR Fantasy Football Tier Rankings were the work of many sleepless nights while being whipped incessantly (don’t judge!).Please, blog, may I have some more?
Michael Vick – News out of Iggles camp is QB?/WR?/RB?/Felon will play in the first 3 quarters of the Eagles’ next preseason game. Earlier, Andy Reid claimed he’d play Vick at quarterback in the 4th quarter, so it appears we’ll get to see Vick lining up somewhere other than at QB.Please, blog, may I have some more?
2nd year WR David Clowney, wasn’t clowning around in the Jet’s first preseason game in 2009. The Virginia Tech product hauled in 3 catches (2 very snazzy snags) for 102 yards. With Laveranues Coles out of the picture, and Jerricho Cotchery taking over the #1 WR duties, an impressive preseason may move Clowney into a starting position opposite Cotchery.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The below chart is not there to give you seizures, but to hopefully help you, not disable you. I am a fan of Football Outsiders’ method of evaluating defenses called DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average). Instead of just taking the total number of yards given up on the ground or through the air, they look at situations and results.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mike Bell of, maybe this Denver RB will rush for 1500 yards because he’s in the “system” fame, rushed 10 times for 100 yards and a TD. After the game Brees insinuated that Bell could see more touches which would give about 5 touches per game per Saints offensive player.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Many of us play in leagues where kick and punt return yards count for fake points that could translate into real money or a false sense of happiness. But how much stake do you put into return ability? Last year many jacked Devin Hester’s value up thinking that since he was becoming a bigger part of the offense, coupled with the insane return numbers he had the year before, he would be a monster in return yardage leagues.Please, blog, may I have some more?
