B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back after most of week 7 is in the books (just waiting on MNF). Missing the double header from last week, but we take a look at the happenings from week 7. 

Chris Carson left the game with a mild foot injury so we talk about where Carlos Hyde might rank among potential waiver wire targets. Speaking of injuries, we look at the Cardinals RB situation following Kenyan Drake and our expectations for Chase Edmonds.

The guys move on to talk about the Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott. Should you be concerned ROS for Zeke? Where does he fit in among RBs? DT and B_Don let you know their opinions. 

Next, the OBJ injury was tough, and what kind of FAAB we might be dropping on potential replacements for the Browns. We both scoff at the idea that the offense will be better without OBJ as some have suggested. Speaking of tough Ohio WR situations, we discuss where A.J. Green and Tee Higgins fit in among WRs. 

Moving on to an equally cloudy situation B_Don asks DT if it’s time that we can trust D’Andre Swift. We wrap up with a quickfire of questions about Rob Gronkowski, Josh Allen, and where Tua Tagovailoa fits in at QB for the rest of the season.

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. A beautiful day in the neighborhood. Won’t you be…….SMASH! BAM! PUKE! SLAM! Unless you drafted Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Mark Andrews, or Darren Waller, the tight end position has likely caused you to throw remotes at the television or sulk, cry, assume the fetal position, then cry some more. But have no fear. Rather than wandering aimlessly in a GTA-esque fashion, there may be a short-term alleviation of your pain, as Richard Rodgers has entered the neighborhood and is prepared to throw a block party. Wait, bad choice of words. A catch party is more like it, but in this Rona world, that could be a troublesome phrase. 

Rodgers is 28 years old, 6′ 4″, and 257 pounds. He played his college ball at the University of California Berkeley and was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft. During his four year stint with the Packers, he played in 63 games and received 181 targets and caught 120 for 1166 yards and 13 touchdowns. In 2018, he was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles. Unfortunately, the next two years were mired by multiple injuries resulting in only eight games played, 1 reception, and injured reserve settlements. He signed with the Washington Football Team in 2020, was released, then ended up back with the Eagles.

You likely haven’t heard this story before. It was kept under tight wraps by the request of San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. Back in his days as a graduate assistant at UCLA, Shanahan jumped on a plane to go see his dad Mike who was coaching the Pro Bowl out in Hawaii. But Kyle’s plane never made it to Hawaii, crashing mid-flight. As the lone survivor, Kyle Shanahan found himself living on a deserted island for four years with only a volley ball to keep him company. Shanahan named his volley-ball-companion, Jeff Wilson. True story. Cut to 13 years later and Shanahan nostalgically handed the non-volley ball version of Jeff Wilson 17 carries for 112 yards, 2 catches for 8 yards and his 2nd, 3rd and 4th touchdowns as he bulldozed the New England Patriots’ run defense. Even the great Pigskinonator didn’t see this coming! Unfortunately, Wilson left the game with an ugly looking ankle injury sustained on that 3rd TD run. Look for JaMycal Hasty (9 carries for 57 yards, 1 catch for 16 yards) and Jerick McKinnon (3 carries for -1 yard) to reform a committee until Raheem Mostert (ankle) returns. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday for fantasy football:

You know how when people post pictures of their kids on Facebook doing things like petting a dog or taking a bite of food and they say something like “my heart is full” or “my heart might explode”? Well that’s how I feel about the Big Ten playing football again. It brings a bit of normalcy back to my life in a year that’s been interesting to say the least. 

Speaking of interesting, what does Antonio Brown have going on with Tom Brady? Tom let Brown live with him when AB signed in New England and now he brings him to the Bucs.. Hmmm.. Maybe Giselle has a new appetite to worry about with Tom outside of him liking to kiss his kids for a little too long. I really wonder how many games Antonio Brown will actually play once his suspension is lifted. Is AB able to find a helmet that he’s willing to wear while simultaneously following Covid protocols? With Mike Evans and Chris Godwin both a bit gimpy, Tampa could use the help if AB has his stuff together. It’s probably worth a shot for Tampa at the price tag that they’re paying.

Another week on the razors edge of pandemic pandemonium is in the books. Positive tests and quarantines abound. Here’s hoping your fantasy assets aren’t tied to a team that may be forced to play without it’s entire offensive line.

  • I’m as happy as the next D’Andre Swift backer that he broke out with two TDs last week. They made up for his still restricted usage of 17 touches to Adrian Peterson’s 16. That could tell two stories. A young back being brought along gradually after an early season soft tissue injury and trending upward. Or a rookie stuck in a rotation by a staff archaic enough to let that matter. We’ll get more proof in this week’s pudding against a Falcons team that has been shredded by pass catching backs.

The legalization of sports betting has been reaching new states seemingly every day. Michigan is one of the newest states to join the party. Michigan is trying to go live before the end of the NFL season. Michigan sports betting is slated to go live on November 15th, 2020. On this date, three of the biggest US sportsbooks should be launching their live betting for The Great Lakes State. DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and BetMGM Sportsbook will all be allowed to begin taking bets. Team futures are always a fun bet, so why not take a gamble on some NFL odds when this time arrives? Here are some ideas for bets that you cannot (smiles as writing this) go wrong with.

There are a number of states with legal mobile sports betting, so if you’re one of the lucky ones, make sure to shop your odds.

The first time you do something, it’s memorable. Like, your first kiss, or your first time waking up in a bathtub with a kidney missing. Because if you wake up a second time in a bathtub with a second kidney missing, well, it’s going to be a rough day that you don’t want to remember. 

Now, will Mick Ciallela’s second time at the top of the Razzbowl rankings be remembered as a second kiss or a second missing kidney? Let’s find out!

With 66% of the cutline best ball portion of the tournament done, Mick becomes the first Razzbowler to repeat as the Leadingest Leaderboard Leader. Let’s take a look at what the man from Fantrax has been doing to chase that coveted Razzbowl trophy and sweet, sweet Razzball merch.

Borat 2, the presidential debate and Thursday Night Football. What do they all have in common? Young girls. We have Rudy G trying to bang a very young woman (allegedly) in Borat 2. We have two 70 year old men bickering like school girls during the presidential debates—no offense to our two school girl readers. And then we have two quarterbacks throwing footballs like little ladies on TNF, or so we expected. But Carson Wentz wasn’t feeling much like a sissy man against the Giants defense, going 25/43 for 359 yards, 7 carries for 14 yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 1 rushing touchdown and 1 interception—he now has 10 passing touchdowns and 5 rushing touchdowns on the season. Pigskinonator saw this huge game coming when nobody else did, ranking Wentz as its #7 QB compared to the FantasyPros expert consensus ranking of #16. The pig-bot is really starting to heat up now that it has more data and extra slop to chew on. Sign up now for a 3-day free trial! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday for fantasy football:

Week 7 is upon us and Thursday Night Football is back after a one week hiatus. I think we should make Tuesday night football a regular thing instead of Thursday. Thursday night games hardly even feel like a game for the week of the Sunday games. Tuesday night football still gives us 3 days of football, but it makes them flow better. I’m probably just bummed that my choice of football if I oblige is an NFC East game tonight. There won’t be a play for tonight’s game this week, so here are your starts and sits for Sunday!
