Welcome back to the RazzBlitz Podcast! This week, Zach joins me to talk about the first week of the World Cup and how I am a terrible soccer gambler. Speaking of luck, we venture into the latest Andrew Luck news and figure out who we would want to roster from the Colts this season. We move onto the Brown’s offense and what to expect from Tyrod Taylor. For whatever reason, we ventured down the rabbit hole of the past 15 years of miserable Tampa Bay Buccaneers football.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The best blend of accurate and bold weekly projections for QB/RB/WR/TE + PK + Defensive Teams and IDP as well as a kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
I hate the format of the traditional NFL Depth Chart. Why? Because it is an abject failure in format. Reports should be designed around answering at least one question very well. Answering multiple questions is possible but introduces tradeoffs in simplicity and effectiveness (e.g., to answer 2 questions really well, it might be more complex…or you answer both questions less effectively but retain simplicity).Please, blog, may I have some more?
There is no denying just how important how important the running back position is to fantasy football roster construction. Once you get past the first couple of rounds, the position becomes a cesspool of what ifs. If you’re in a 12 team league, current ADP data says that only eight picks in the first two rounds won’t be a running back. It’s more important than ever to make the right pick.
Just like with wide receivers, this is a pre-training camp evaluation so my opinion is subject to change going into August. But, as of now, I’m going to let you know what running backs that I don’t see myself drafting this season. When I’m drafting running back early, I’m targeting volume second only to skill. Dual-threat is also something that I look for too. I mostly play in PPR leagues. A lot of the time, the past performance and current off season moves at offensive line can also sway me.Please, blog, may I have some more?

What’s going on everyone, and welcome back to the second post in a series I will be doing over the next few weeks, where I’ll be taking a look at each position’s “busts” from the year before (comparing their finish in standard leagues to their pre-season ADP data), to help us figure out what went wrong last year, and to see if they can bounce-back in 2018.
Today I’ll be taking a look at four running back busts that finished lower than their preseason ADP data would indicate their finishing position at the end of the year.
There weren’t a lot of “busts” this past year at the position as it was the year of the running backs, with many different value options finishing in the Top 20. However, there were still some disappointments, so let’s go over those guys now.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Rudy Gamble joins me to talk about his 2018 projections and what he picked up on from the 2017 season. It was a great conversation as we got a little bit into position battles, aDOT, and the splitting of work loads. Rudy’s introduction post for 2018 should be up today or tomorrow so be sure to check that out as well!Please, blog, may I have some more?
In a shocking turn of events Thursday afternoon, the NFL world learned of Julian Edelman’s very likely suspension of 4 games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
The Patriots aren’t too foreign to the concept of their star players being suspended for 4 games, so let’s dive into what this suspension means for the Patriots, but more importantly, fantasy owners come draft time.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to a new series that I am starting for our favorite site. I’m going to go through the wide receiver, quarterback, and running back positions and let you know the names that I don’t see myself drafting this year. This is just for me personally so it is certainly not the end-all-be-all. We are approaching June so it’s time for me to start thinking about picking my favorites and and who I will be avoiding at all costs.
The difficult part of this article will be that training camp has yet to start so a lot could change and I may end up contradicting myself down the line. But I am going to try and list the players that I am most certain that I will be avoiding. Most of this will be based on early adp and rankings from the big named sites. So far I have perused Mike Clay, Matthew Berry, and some of the combined FantasyPros rankings to compile my opinions. We’re going to dive into past statistics, current roster construction, among other things. The weather is heating up so let’s bring out the hot takes.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Some of you know how big of a Bill Simmons fan that I am. One of my best internet memories is when he included one of my questions in his mailbag when he still had the Grantland site. Well folks, I snagged my favorite football writer from his site; The Ringer’s own, Danny Kelly. We talked briefly about the Bryan Colangelo burner account news (a must read if you live under a rock). We also talked about real football, fantasy football, and Killing Eve. I had a fantastic time and hope you enjoy listening to it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
