Even though I’m not one to pat myself on the back (actually, I am), Razzball has been on an upward curve, bringing some sort of conglomerate synergistic metamorphosis (as they say in the corporate world), providing you an ever-improving ranking accuracy year after year. How do we do it? No clue. It could be dark wizardry. It could be indigestion. It could even be your mother. But I have to admit, this year is going to be daunting, if only because the expectations we’ve placed on ourselves here at Razzball Football are at an all time high (just like my college years). Going from 31st overall to 22nd in Weekly Fantasy Football accuracy is one thing. But going from 22nd to the top 10 in the entire nation last season is quite another. And then on top of that, to finish third overall in our Draft Rankings last year… well, it’d be folly to try and say “Yes, we’re going to try even more, (more better if you believe in remedial English)”, but yeah, I’m going to say it… We’re going to do more better. (My English teacher just placed a bounty on me.) With that said, and my parentheses key broken, here are your 2017 Fantasy Football Running Back Dynasty Rankings

Jay — 2 person keeper league (lose same round as drafted), 0.5 PPR

Ajayi 8th
AB – 1st
Jordy – 2nd
Shady – 3rd

I assume keep 1st two and as 4th pick, have the option of maybe getting shady back (however unlikely)?

Thanks man

@Jay: Thomas is definitely my no. 1 value there, but have a feeling I’m going to be stuck with Hopkins or Julio and I don’t want anything to do with Hou. Reed is a nice value, but isn’t exactly going to win leagues for you. after I get out of the snake draft the best Wr available will be someone like golden Tate or Edelman and last year both of them went for 33$. Wr prices get inflated for the remaining no. 2 or 3 wrs with upside. Last year I had so much depth, then Watkins, John brown and Eric decker pretty much were injured and useless all season long.

Doing fantasy football in a money league for the first time and figured I should start to take fantasy football as seriously as I do baseball with money at stake and all!

Was wondering if you noted any significant shifts in your rankings based on the league settings below.

I’ve joined a 14 team PPR league with a starting roster of 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1K, 1 DEF team, and 1 DEF player ($200 to spend at auction) with the following settings:

OFFENSE:
Passing Yards: 25 yards per point; 4 points at 300 yards
Passing Touchdowns: 6 pts
Interceptions: -2 pts

Rushing Yards:: 10 yards per point; 2 points at 100 yards; 2 points at 150 yards
Rushing Touchdowns: 6

Receiving Yards: 10 yards per point; 2 points at 100 yards; 2 points at 150 yards
Receiving Touchdowns: 6 pts

Return Yards: 25 yards per point; 2 points at 150 yards
Return Touchdowns: 6 pts

Fumbles: -1 pt
Fumbles Lost: -2 pts

DEFENSE
Tackle Solo: 1 pt
Tackle Assist: 0.5 pt
Sack: 2 pts
Interception: 3 pts
Fumble Force: 1 pt
Fumble Recovery: 3 pts
Defensive Touchdown: 6 pts
Safety: 3 pts
Pass Defended: 1 pt
Block Kick: 3 pts
Tackles for Loss: 1 pt

In addition to wondering if you see any significant player valuation or positional value shifts, I was wondering if it made sense to spend pretty much all $200 at auction on only RBs and WRs and basically stream/value pick all other positions. If not, would love to hear what auction strategy you would ideally want to take in such a league.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I could counter with another WR/RB duo but don’t know if he will do it.

QB Aaron Rodgers, GB QB
RB Frank Gore, Ind RB Q
RB Paul Perkins, NYG RB
WR Mike Evans, TB WR
WR Dez Bryant, Dal WR
TE Jimmy Graham, Sea TE
FLEX Demaryius Thomas, Den WR

Bench Jamaal Charles, Den RB

@Dom: also if I were to do this trade who should my go to flex be, because right now I’m using Thomas, but he would become my WR 2 if I do trade.

also for the roster above I drafted Mike Evans over AJ Green, was that a smart choice? I trust Winston more than Dalton.

weird goings on, i’m about to likely get kamara at pick 2.12 (24th overall). howard was the 3rd rookie TE that’s gone, dan bailey was drafted ahead. m.williams fell to 20th overall. i missed doctson by 1 pick (i do need RB though so probably a blessing). and i’m probably about to be able to trade britt for gillislee or red dick, i told the owner i’d take either if he was able to draft gillislee.

@Jay: i like this no F’ing around get the dynasty ranks out (3 in ONE day!). i’d guess the projections (stats) coming out somewhat after these? (this may have been mentioned, i’m on page 4 and the podcasts)

just joined a dynasty 12 teamer (previous owner was a deadbeat). rush yards worth more than receiving, half PPR. start less total RB’s to make up for the difference. 25 receiving yards per point, 10 for rushing. got 2nd overall in all rounds, cut enough people to draft 6 spots (including a D and there’s room for a kicker)
QB rodfather (team is only weak here really, and RB depth)
RB (1) howard/ware (cutting roughshod)
WR (2) beckham/m.thomas
TE (cut pitta, will draft one at 2.2)
WR/TE nuke hopkins
WR/RB (1)
BN jeffrey/thielen/meredith (cutting boyd)
K none (just an awful one owned before anyway)
D (TWO awful ones owned, both cut)
so i’ll get fournette or mccaffrey at 1.2 then best TE at 2.2 probably (maybe QB instead), and am trying to trade one of jeffrey/thielen/meredith for a RB or maybe 2 of them for QB and RB.

@And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers!: or maybe one of the better WR for a QB, that’s probably more realistic than getting a better than rodfather QB than merdith/thielen/jeffrey

Hey Jay,
In my keeper league, we can keep as many as we want, but each keep forfeits a round, starting from 1. So keeping 5 players would mean I couldn’t draft till Round 6. Here’s my team:
QB: Russ, Flacco
RB: David Johnson (KEEP!!), Eddie Lacy, Doug Martin, James White, Wendall Smallwood
WR: Sammy Watkins, Emmanuel Sanders, Devante Parker, Donte Moncrief, Mike Wallace, JEremy Maclin, Cole Beasley
TE: Fleener
