All the season-long projections you could ever want. A kick-ass DFS lineup optimizer and projections for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo!.
We are now more than two-thirds and less than three-quarters of the way through the NFL season (#math), which means your league should be right at its trading deadline as you try to shore up those running back slots for a playoff run. Making matters more interesting the last couple weeks were a bunch of injuries that should clear up some playing time for running backs who were either riding the bench or snoozing on the waiver wire. Like Samaje Perine, for example.
I liked Perine coming into the season for a number of reasons. The biggest was that I think Rob Kelley stinks, so I figured Perine would take over that job and keep it at some point. Kelley has been injured off an on for most of the season, and Perine has gotten some chances and not done much with them. But those were week-to-week situations, with Kelley lingering in the background as he got healthy, so you knew that Perine would have to get hot in order to keep the job. And even if he did, Kelley would probably still be there to vulture and eat into the share of touches.
But Kelley is gone now and was placed on injured reserve. Making matters more interesting, Chris Thompson, who was averaging roughly a gazillion fantasy points per game earlier this season by taking swing passes to the house, joined him on injured reserve on Tuesday. That leaves Samaje Perine all by his lonesome with all those touches. His backup, Byron Marshall, was on the Eagles practice squad last week and is nothing more than a third-down running back/wide receiver hybrid and return man.
The time has come for you to consider a Perine implant. In his first game as the dude, Perine put up 126 total yards and a touchdown. More importantly, he got 24 touches (23 carries and one reception) on Sunday, while Thompson seeing five before leaving with a fractured fibula. If you need a running back and can find that kind of volume on the waiver wire or in a trade that shouldn’t be very expensive (don’t overpay, but check in on his price), you have to pull the trigger.
If you have a solid team but are maybe one running back short of a real run, Perine could be your guy. Maybe you’re like me and have been alternating one spot between Bilal Powell, Matt Forte, Marlon Mack, and someone from the Seahawks all year. Perine can be our savior, guys.
Now, to the charts!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Happy early Thanksgiving Razzball folks! Be grateful, it’s the only Thursday of the football season that we get THREE games. I’m thankful for the tradition as old as I can remember. What’s that, MB? All of the fantastic food and starting drinking before noon? No, I often start drinking before noon, it’s called a Bloody Mary, and it’s nutritious. I’m talking about watching the terrible-but-recently-turned-bearable franchise, the Detroit Lions start the day off and then following it with rooting against the Cowboys. You can ignore your family and their political arguments and bury yourself in the one thing that truly matters to you, making the fantasy playoffs! Before we get to the rankings, I have to make a few things clear…Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s going on everybody, and welcome to Wednesday, another rankings day here at Razzball. We are one day away from Thanksgiving, so I hope all of our awesome readers out there are having a happy and healthy holiday season to this point, and a great Thanksgiving tomorrow!
Week 12 is always a special one as we have 3 Thursday games on Turkey Day, then our normal Sunday and Monday slate. We are also past bye weeks, which is always something to celebrate, so let’s jump right into it.
*Note*: All projections are based off of standard-scoring points, with the ranking given as the Pigskinonator ranking, not my personal rank.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We have a special edition of the RazzBlitz podcast as the Bills Mafia sector of Razzball joins us to discuss the disaster that was Nathan Peterman. We also give our thoughts on Week 11 before previewing the Thanksgiving Day and Week 12 games…Please, blog, may I have some more?
In my Saturday Start/Sit article I prepared you for an onslaught of Seinfeld references: “I like Nathan Peterman as a deep option and you’ll find him in my waiver column on Tuesday. And there will definitely be plenty of J. Peterman references. Teasers!” I regret to inform you that after N. Peterman’s embarrassing display on Sunday, there will be no Seinfeld bits in this article. I don’t know what convinced Bills head coach Sean McDermott to bench Tyrod Taylor for Peterman, but one of the competing theories is that he’s under the influence of narcotics. That’s right: white lotus, yam-yam, Shanghai Sally.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After this Nathan Peterman performance, we are going to have a really fun special edition of the Razzblitz podcast this week with Viz and Reid joining us. Be sure to check it out, we will have it out by Wednesday at the latest. We had some really fun football on Sunday that included two overtime finishes. Let’s go ahead and kick it off with one of those now.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Hey Razzballers, Reid here fresh off a personal bye week ready to give you guys an updated injury report for the Sunday and Monday Night games.
#BillsMafia is injured with pure confusion after watching the Saints just run all over Buffalo and the reaction from the coaching staff who benched Tyrod Taylor for 5th Round Rookie selection Nathan Peterman. Seriously. I have no idea how it’s going to play out, but I have a gut feeling he’s going to sling it out there regardless of the consequences, so we might see a boost for Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones (my extreme sleeper who will totally win you your league in the playoffs).Please, blog, may I have some more?
