I’m happy to report that Razzball had another great week with rankings. Tehol finished in the top-10 for quarterbacks, and on top of that, Rudy’s Pigskinator was able to rank first for wide receivers. That’s actually pretty amazing. Not only that, but for those of you who play in IDP leagues, Rudy’s projections finished second overall, and achieved top-10 status for both kickers and DSTs! Just some amazing results all around. And while it might seem self-serving when I wax poetic about our accuracy feats, it’s not just because I love talking about myself all the time (call me, ladies), it’s also because our success hopefully translates to our reader’s success. And if not? Then just do what I always do and blame Obama…

We’ve had two contests running, the first being for using our remade Fantasy Football Team Name Generator and yesterday’s Steiner Sports Giveaway. The first was for a Razzball T-Shirt (of your choice) and the second was for $100.00 to use on Steiner Sports Memorabilia Store (which has some pretty awesome stuff.) Both winners were chosen randomly by Rudy, that way if you didn’t win, you can just blame him. I usually find that to be my de facto position at all times anyhow, so I’m sure he’s used to it. So congratulations to the two Razzball readers, you’ll find their names after the jump!

Another week, another set of results. While there was some slippage (that’s what she said?) in our Week 5 Rankings, the aggregate tells a different story. We’ve actually moved into the magical top-20 of all fantasy “experts” for the year, and top-15 percentile.

In the mean time, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post talking about Razzball Football’s bright future, I wanted to introduce a Razzball-only contest. Yes, it’s hosted by FanDuel, but instead of the large money leagues and bigger formats, we’re getting more intimate (that’s what I wish she said). And it’s just for the Razzball writers and readers… that’s it. Just a $5.00 buy-in and the top-12 finishers are part of the prize pool. We understand that Daily Fantasy isn’t for everyone, so this contest is just the thing we as a Razzball community can get into. For now, we’ll start with 55 spots and see how this week fares. So, if you’d like to take myself and your fellow readers on, join here!

And now, your Week 6 Rankings… (with an updated Rest of Season Rankings!) And, in lieu of our new Razzball Contest this week, I’ll be including a FanDuel Cheat Sheet below!

As the title spoiled (SORRY!), the first quarter of the season is now complete (which means our Rest of Season Rankings have been released!), and I’m proud to say that our last two weeks were stellar. Last week’s rankings finished 12th overall, good for the top 10%, bringing our in-season numbers close to the top-20. I usually don’t like to pat myself on the back, even though God created arms for that purpose and that purpose only (okay, okay, arms are also good for arm wrestling), but my success means your success. So, I can be a boastful (and a quite handsome) fella, just as long as it’s for a good cause. I’m okay with this. At this time, I want to add that I’m a kind-hearted, amazing person that deserves your reverence. Which is the best segue ever, because I know it’s all fun and games, and, you know, yo momma jokes here at Razzball, but I did want all of you to consider donating to the Red Cross. Millions of refugees are fleeing conditions in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan because of profound and abhorrent violence and persecution. Not to get too serious, but helping these people is a big deal to me, and if you can spare anything, whatever the amount, it’s meaningful. Alright, alright, let’s get back to the good stuff… Like yo momma.

Obviously, we’re not doing as well as we were last season around the same time period. The real question is, why am I using the royal “we”? On both counts, you can color me confused. Because I’m a book. It’s a coloring book joke people. Anyhow, to the point… I want to state that, personally, these first two weeks of accuracy results have me befuddled. Befuddled I tell ya! And I say this as a ranker who, unlike last year, has not ranked Ryan Mathews anywhere near the top-5… so I have that going for me. I realize that the entire process can sometimes be, well, to put it bluntly, a mystery. It’s true that this year I’ve taken certain liberties, some would call it “risks”, in terms of rankings. Last season, we finished in the top-25 percentile among all of our peers, and we were probably one of the most consistent week-to-week rankers out there. But consistency doesn’t necessarily get you to the top. And what can I say? I wanted a chance to hit those high notes. Terrible music metaphors aside, after implementing a process that I thought to be more beneficial to the readers (and the site itself), I’ll now be dialing back my strategy a bit. Don’t get me wrong, two weeks is a small sample size, but as I said earlier, you are coming here for the jokes AND a little bit of help. All of us in this business of Fantasy Football advice are here to help, and we feel sh*tty when we’re aren’t helping. And if we don’t feel sh*tty, it’s time to get out of the business all together. I don’t pretend to be a savant at this stuff, but I work hard on this craft because this community deserves it. Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. You guys made that happen…

This week’s rankings, I’ll be returning to the process I used last year, which I can essentially describe with this phrase: better to be safe than sorry. You’ll notice there will be less “gut” calls, floor guys will be ranked higher, and riskier match-ups will be frowned upon. And let’s see how our accuracy responds this time next week. At the very least, I want to be as open as I can, which is why I always share my results at the forefront and consider myself accountable when my own results don’t match my expectations. So I’m basically my own mother, I guess. All things considered though, I’d rather be with your mother…
