So, wouldnâ€™t it be cool if you could take on some of your favorite contributors and all of the Razzball readers/commenters in one huge Free Fantasy Football League? IT WOULD BE COOL YO. Thatâ€™s why we made this possible. And why we used caps and bolded font. Welcome to the 2017 Fantasy Football RCLs! Where all of the Razzballers get to hang out, talk some football, and compete against each other in the game we all love. While we canâ€™t create a single 500-person league as of yet since the technology has yet to be invented, what we can do is create multipleÂ 12-person leagues and pit them all against each other. If you donâ€™t like that, well, you can be the one to wait for the future. So enjoy those dragons with lasers, wearing tight, black leather and blasting Daft Punk. ENJOY IT. However, if you are not such a timey prude, join us for some Fantasy Football funnage. Totally a word. So I present to you: the 2017 RCL Fantasy Football Season, with prizes!
Note: We have some big changes to announce;Â and these requests have been implemented with you, the Razzball readers in mind! First, we’ve dropped Yahoo as our provider of choice, moving to FanTrax, a site that’s not just innovative, but streamlined as well. And that’s not all, we have some format changes to announce! You hate drafting Kickers? Do you roll your eyes when someone drafts the Seahawks DST in the sixth round? We know you do! Kickers and DSTs are now gone, replaced by three IDP spots (DL, LB, DB). Because of these changes, we’ve made sure to createÂ 2017 IDP Draft RankingsÂ for all of your RCL needs…
Before you get started, I know that some of you out there may have never played fantasy football before. Thatâ€™s okay! Razzball has a Beginners Fantasy Football Guide just for you! Maybe youâ€™re a seasoned veteran, well, we have a 2017Â Fantasy Football Draft KitÂ thatâ€™s being updated everyday, be sure check it out multiple times. (That’s what she said.) And canâ€™t think of a team name? Check out ourÂ Fantasy Football Team Name Generator. Need some rankings? Oh, we got someÂ Fantasy Football Rankings!Â Now, letâ€™s get to the good stuffâ€¦
- Prize for the Overall RCL Champion: 50.00 Best Buy Gift Card, 2018 Season Access to our Premium Tools (including Razzball’s DFSBot) and aÂ Razzball T-Shirt of Your Choice!
- Prize for CommissionerÂ of the League that Hosts the RCL CHAMPION: $25.00 Best Buy Gift Card!
You read it right folks. If you are the Commissioner of the league that our RCL Champion is in, you get a prize. So what should you do? Follow the instructions below to create a league. The more leagues you create and fill, the greater the chanceÂ you have of hosting the eventual winner. Create as many as you wantâ€¦ just make sure to get them filled, so go nuts!
- Special Bonus Prize: ForÂ every Commenter that creates Five Leagues and fills them by your draft date, you’ll receive 2017 season-long access to our Fantasy Football Premium Tools, including our DFSBot! (Add in a freeÂ Razzball T-shirtÂ if you create and fill 10 Leagues!)
That’s right, if you create five leagues and fill them up by your set draft date, you get complete access to our Premium Fantasy Football ToolsÂ (along with a Razzball T-Shirt if you create and fill 10!) So my advice? Create a league, get your friends, your family, your local everything to join and get some Razzball swag. A definite win-win if you ask me…
- Special Bonus Prize: AÂ Razzball T-shirtÂ for the Top Finisher (highest point total) ofÂ all the RCLsÂ hosted byÂ TeholÂ Beddict.
Tehol talks the talk, and he walks the walk. Probably in a man-thong. If you are able to offend the Elder Gods and beat our very own Tehol, finishing with the most points out of all the leagues he hosts, then you get that sweet-sweet Razzball swag. That, and some serious respect from Tehol… and probably a man-thong.
Note: Razzball contributors, while allowed to participate, are not eligible for prizes. If a Razzball contributor is the RCL Champion, the Grand Prize will go to the next highest scoring player. If a Razzball contributor hosts the RCL Champion in his/her league, the next highest scorerâ€™s league Commissioner will receive the $25.00 Best Buy gift card.
Format, Rosters, and Scoring
A special perk by working with FanTrax is that if you choose to be a RCL Commissioner, your league will come preset. No instructions, no messy league creation, all you pick is the draft date and time and you’re done!
- This will be a Half-PPR League (0.5).
- 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB/WR/TE), 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 DB. 8 Bench Spots. 1 IR Spot.
- Standard scoring in most cases, please refer to your leagues for an exact point breakdown.
- Six teams will advance to the playoffs.
TO START A LEAGUE:
Just send over an email to [email protected]Â with your requested Draft Date and Time, and we’ll setup the league for you! No work, no worries, no, err, I really couldn’t think of another word that starts with “w”. Like wagonette… Which is a carriage with one crosswise seat in front, two seats in back. Exactly.
