Fantasy Football Videos

Sunday morning has arrived and you spent all weekend on a drinking binge? Or worse (maybe better?), you’ve been up for 48 hours on six different types of drugs? Fear not, Razzball has all of your last-minute fantasy football needs covered. Over the past two days, Bobby has covered the best defensive matchups this week for both AFC and NFC fantasy wide receivers. Yesterday Skorish went through every fantasy-relevant injury to keep an eye on in his weekly Fantasy Football Injury Report. Down below I’ll give you some sneaky start options who might be available in your free agent pool if you’re in a bind, as well as my recently updated week 3 rankings for half PPR leagues. Feel free to ask me questions in the comments if you think the rankings don’t address your specific circumstances. And please, please, please consider purchasing our 2021 fantasy football tools subscription. As intelligent and handsome as we all agree I am, my rankings are still packed full of bias and human error. Rudy’s computer model minimizes the human inputs and leans heavily on raw, untainted data inputs to provide a very valuable, differing viewpoint. Plus you receive all kinds of other benefits with your subscription including next-day snap count and target rate data. Anyway, here’s a few sneaky starts for week 3 of the 2021 fantasy football season:

Two weeks down, a whole bunch more to go folks! So don’t worry about being too overreactive when… Wait how many players are injured? This is just like week 2 last year? This is what happens when you shorten the preseason? Well, that changes things.

Maybe it is overreaction time, eh?

Here’s your weekly round-up of all those poor souls we’ve lost; all the hurting ankles, knees, toes, and groins (heh) you could ever ask for. Buckle up because this is a big one.

If you haven’t read the intro to defense slot vs. wide analysis then dive in now. That article provides the overview of what we are doing for this article. The goal of this article is to find wide receivers to fade and buy based on how many fantasy points their opponent allows in the slot vs. out wide.

The below chart outlines all the teams that are featured in the AFC home games in week 3 and listed by how many total fantasy points they allowed to the wide receiver position this season.

How time flies! Here we are, already two weeks of the RazzBowl are in the books. I’d have written you all updates about it, but I was cruising the Rhône river from Avignon to Orange, sampling Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the region’s finest vignerons.

In other words, I was drunk.

Which also explains my $3 FAAB purchase of one Jameis Winston after the games of Week 1. Yikes.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back to discuss the happenings from week 2 and look forward into week 3, AND BEYOND. We start with some Justin Fields talk as he takes the starting job for DA BEARS. 

The guys take a look at some of the more confusing time shares in fantasy football. What to do with messy RB situations like Dallas, LA Rams, and Baltimore. We also look into the WR groups for the Rams, Ravens, Vikings, 49ers, and Broncos. The guys also spend about 20 minutes discussing Tyler Lockett and the consistency of WRs week to week. Ryder die this week!

The Carolina Panthers improved to 3-0 on Thursday Night, but they couldn’t celebrate the way they would have liked to. For the first time since the 2015 season where they went to the Super Bowl, the Panthers have won their first 3 games of the season. You would think this would be a joyous night of celebration in Carolina, but the big story was the loss of Christian McCaffrey early in the 2nd quarter with a hamstring injury. McCaffrey spent a lot of time in the medical tent and was ruled out almost immediately after coming up hobbled after his 7th carry of the night. Further evaluation on McCaffrey’s hamstring will determine the length of time he will miss, but I expect him to be out for several weeks. Fantasy managers looking to donate CMC a hamstring can send hammys to: Carolina Panthers, Attn: Christian McCaffrey, 800 South Mint Street, Charlotte, NC, 28202.

“But Donkey Teeth, didn’t you just provide us with very in-depth and meticulously curated positional rest of season rankings for 2021 fantasy football, week 3, only two days ago?” Why yes, dear reader, and thank you for noticing. This is not an error, nor an oversight. It was all very carefully thought out during my recent peyote ceremony with some local natives. While I do get the positional rest of season rankings to the press promptly each and every Tuesday, prior to waivers and FAAB, I also feel it’s important to provide more context later in the week to assist in trade negotiations and other important roster decisions. If you desperately need a running back and are rostering all of Thielen, Golladay, Woods and Evans, then my positional breakdown doesn’t help you to construct the perfectly reasonable trade offer for James Robinson, Ty’Son Williams or Myles Gaskin. Now we also have the overall rankings table below to view positional valuations relative to other positions, while still having the option to sort by individual positions. The best of both worlds, which I tasted during that peyote trip. And over the past two days, I’ve also taken more time to refine these rankings after digesting more of the week one action and listening to some very valuable community feedback from you intelligent readers. The positional rankings from earlier in the week also delve a bit deeper into the rankings compared to this overall top 150 provided below. Anyway, here’s my sortable rest of season rankings for half PPR 2021 fantasy football:

As the resident member of Raider Nation here at Razzball, it makes my heart tingle to write this piece. Will it remove the vomit still stuck in my esophagus from Jamarcus Russell? Hells to the no but the squad actually looks like a competent team. It’s only been two games, so I’m far from crowning them but two victories over tough AFC North teams in Baltimore and Pittsburgh on the road brings rays of light into the Son household. Let’s break down what’s happened so far and look at the fantasy implications.

Now that we’re getting into Week 3, let us gather ’round the campfire and tell scary stories about the Bogeycreatures of our minds: Biases! To know oneself is a difficult task, a task I will perhaps never complete. Correction, I know the parts of me that I abhor, just not the good parts. So yeah, as Meatloaf did not sing, “One out of two ain’t bad.” Now that’s some bad math, friends, so let us impale your encased meats and inflated sugar cylinders on your sticks, stare into the flames, and ponder the first person who decided that flames “lick.” First one to scream in fright has to stay up and make sure the fire’s all the way out. We’re doing A-through-C today. Use these biases to reflect on your drafts, your teams as they stand now, and to manipulate people so you win every argument. People like you a lot better when you insist on winning every argument
