Fantasy Football Videos

Back in another world years ago, when a fabled legend of football named Marshawn Lynch played, he had a run so thunderous that the viewers at home called it “Beast Mode.” Lynch tossed defenders aside like a knight casting off pieces of armor to which his enemies clenched as he ran to protect his dear castle of the endzone. Alas, the good Sir Marshawn has since retired (2 times so far) and his mantle has been picked up by the fair squire [checks notes] Damien Harris. OK! Apparently, the joke’s on me. Rudy’s Razzball Premium Football Tools had Harris getting a ridiculous number of touches all offseason, and like a patron who goes to their favorite restaurant every week and never looks at the menu and never sees the new and improved specials, I completely missed the hottest RB in the NFL not named “Elijah Mitchell” (RIP). But it’s OK, because everybody else whiffed on him too. So, fellow diners, are we ready to read the menu this time? Let’s check out the specials and see who’s making the list of specials this week and who’s getting sent back to the kitchen.

G’Mornin, degenerates! Donkey Teeth and I will be switching off the Sunday primers every week in accordance with whichever zodiac sign is dominant in the sky. Also, we don’t have any astrology books around and Grey doesn’t allow Google on the work computers at Razzball Headquarters, so we’ve decided that each Zodiac sign lasts one week. Last week, it was Donkinapoli, the celestial god of ruminating cloven-hoofed animals. This week, it’s Spookii, the celestial lord of pumpkin spice. Now that I’m powered by nutmeg and cloves, here’s the double scoop on the fantasy football news for today.

If you haven’t read the first article from week 1 Click Here. That article provides the overview on 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 NFC home games in week 2 and listed by how many total fantasy points they allowed to the wide receiver position this season.

Ah, well. That was a rough week one. Some amazing games, spectacular moments, and lots of injuries. It’s always a bit of shell-shock from the offseason to week one, seeing all the guys you’ve salivated over (no innuendo intended) suddenly go down with an injury, erasing all the precious production you were waiting for. But this is football after all and injuries will happen. Profound right? Maybe not but whatever, you just want to know who’s gonna post those precious stats on the board, huh? You goddamned sicko? These are human beings! You just want that sweet, sweet fantasy advice, huh dirtbag?  Well, here it is!

Welcome back to Propageddon, where I take seven of the week’s more intriguing storylines and pit them against a handful of your favorite analysts, and Donkey Teeth. They range the mundanely difficult to challengingly absurd. In that madness, there is sometimes a kernel of knowledge to be gained. Other times, I’m just trolling our writers over their least favorite players. Either way, you and I get to have some fun at their expense. I expect you to click on this post seven times since we spared you from the dreaded slideshow clickbait post. It’s only fair.

Poor Daniel Jones can’t catch a break. The Giants can’t even let the other team lose properly! On Thursday Night Football, with the world watching, the Giants quarterback rose to the occasion and played one of his best games that I can remember. The New York Giants had several opportunities to put the game away, but penalties, receiving blunders and an inexcusable special teams debacle handed the Washington Football Team the win in the closing seconds. Overall, it was a good game with 5 lead changes including a back-and-forth 4th quarter and a game winning field goal on the last play.

In a just world, blurbs would eat caveats for breakfast. I already went over a list of fantasy football caveats in one of my first blogs on this old corner of the “osphere,” as they say. In a sports media universe that we breathe in the moment we wake up and open social media, after our cat knocks over the drying rack because she’s a glutton for both food and self-flagellation, The Take rules over us all. The Take draws us in with instant magnetic concrete-thinker thuggery. Our amygdalas catch fire, and rupture into the two divine paths, as Robert Frost once cataloged:

“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 2, 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 2021 fantasy football:

Air Yards are the Gordon Ramsey of fantasy receiving stats. They tell us exactly what was right and clearly what was wrong with how a receiver performed in a given week. Often, it’s not easy to hear. But you as a fantasy manager need to pay attention to the under-the-hood numbers from your receivers instead of just blindly trusting the box score results, you donkey. 

Each week, this column will dissect air yards for actionable info in the weeks to come. For Week 1, we will do a quick analysis of the list of 75 wide receivers who finished the week with at least 30 air yards.
