We are here today to point out the differences between the Razzball Rankings (which finished Top-3 in 2016) and those that ESPN has released to the masses. Haha, just kidding. You know, it used to be that Matthew Berry, Tristan Cockraft (lovely human being, totally serious. Met him at the LABR party down in Arizona Spring Training, probably one of the nicest guys in the industry along with Eno Sarris), and Eric Karabell submitted their rankings for the Accuracy Challenge that our friends over at FantasyPros host… After both Berry finishing in the lower 80’s back in 2015 and then Karabell finishing in the same area-ish (“ish” because I can’t remember exactly ) last season, they have yet to be seen this season putting their rankings to the test. So while I used to be able to compare our rankings to what the “industry” had made “standard” (parenthesis for sarcasm I suppose), the first thing you’ll notice with our yearly “Rankings Versus” series is that there won’t be any Matthew Berry. Whether that’s ultimately a good or bad thing, I’ll let you decide. Because, hey, I’m just that kind of guy. But don’t worry! Instead, we’ll be taking a look at how our “industry” leading rankings stack against the ECR (Expert Consensus Rankings), and last season’s top “Accuracy Expert” (no sarcasm), Dalton Del Don from Yahoo! (do I have to yell it every time? Geez, that gets old real fast…) Sports, not to be confused with “Yoohoo! Sports”, which I do all the time. Then again, I usually confuse most things with chocolate drinks. Totally normal.

So be sure to check out our 2017 Fantasy Football Rankings, Auction Values, and our very own Cheat Sheet for any context you may need. I’d say that context needs more chocolate drink to be honest…

171 Terrance Williams (DAL – WR) 239 68
184 Marquise Goodwin (SF – WR) 251 67

135 Cole Beasley (DAL – WR) 161 26
174 Charles Clay (BUF – TE) 200 26

I really have no idea what’s going on with Torrey Smith. As many of the regular readers can attest to, I’ve never liked him in terms of fantasy. As a person, I just don’t know, but if he treats life like he does receiving yards, I don’t have much hope for him. So what’s changed? I’m not terribly sure if anything has, true, he has gotten out of San Francisco which probably raised his rankings by half all by itself. But I’m not sure how much volume the number two receiver will get in Philadelphia. There’s Nelson Agholor, Zach Ertz, and Darren Sproles to compete with, but on the flipside, another year on Carson Wentz’s belt (is that really where you want to put it bro?) should provide the offense with room to grow. So this is me basically saying I don’t get why I’m so high on Smith… maybe everyone else is just so low?

Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams always seem to hover in the top-200 for me, mostly because Dez Bryant‘s idea of a full season is a few weeks short of reality. Missing eight games the last two seasons will not just drop your own draft day value, but also raise those around you. A high tide lifts all boats type of situation, if you’re into the whole nautical thing. This far down the rankings, things start getting easily interchangeable so I wouldn’t read too much into my love for Terrance Williams, but Beasley seems like a good bet to have immense PPR value. Think of him as the Danny Woodhead of wide receivers, gritty (white), underrated (short and white), and a pass-catcher (a white pass-catcher).

Some other notable players that didn’t make the cut were Jamaal Williams (who I really really like), Chris Thompson (PPR Leagues), and Bilal Powell, who should make all Matt Forte owners a bit nervous.

178 Alvin Kamara (NO – RB) 163 -15

While some may get the sense that I like Jeremy Hill less than my peers merely for personal reasons, then I say to you: Yeah, could be. The dude vultures more than actual vultures. Vultures actually call him up to get tips on their game. And do you even know what carrion eating does to your gums? I’ll tell you what: I don’t want to know. Taking a metaphor too far aside, I’m not sure what purpose he serves on your team. The Cincy backfield is not just crowded, but it’s crowed with plenty of middling talent (Giovani Bernard and Hill) mixed with potential talent in Joe Mixon. Even if you own everyone, it’ll be a fools errand to try and figure out who starts and is relegated to the bench, and based on what we’ve seen in the past, it’ll be Hill sitting on your bench with three carries, fifteen yards, and 28,456 touchdowns while Bernard has a 120 yard rushing day. I’m staying away from the whole depth chart, but especially Hill who just adds complications when setting your roster. It’s a weird reason, but I’m standing by it. Because science.

Looks like my Antonio Gates love has finally faded after nearly 15 years, just way children of divorce like it. I still like him as a streaming and bench option, but it’s pretty clear he’ll be getting few looks outside the red zone, and Hunter Henry has looked really solid, last season and this preseason.

Some other notable names that the ECR liked more than myself were Travis Kelce, Paul Perkins (the worst running back in the NFL, and Eddie Lacy could eat his favorite restaurant. Literally the actual restaurant.), Randall Cobb, and Terrelle Pryor.

124 Jordan Matthews (BUF – WR) 169 45
59 Larry Fitzgerald (ARI – WR) 98 39
107 Corey Coleman (CLE – WR) 145 38

Of course the J-E-T-S Jets! require any football analysis to be graded on a curve… a very friendly one (we’re not monsters here!), but still, with Quincy Enunwa out for the year, they’ll have to throw it to someone other than Matt Forte and Bilal Powell… I think? Yeah, there’s something called a Hackenburg (Swedish ice cream company? Heisenberg, but with something stuck in his throat?) in charge of passing the football, but I’m surprised we’re that far apart on Robby Anderson.

Another huge gap (say hello to your mother for me) that raised an eyebrow was Frank Gore. I’m not a fan by any means, but seeing as how RB depth this season is almost non-existent, I’m happy to grab Gore up at the right spot. And I support ageism as much as the next Xennials, but not enough to justify a 77-spot difference.

I think the most general conclusion I can proffer here is that Del Don seemingly dislikes players who catch the ball for a living. Every player on that list is a receiver sans Powell (who I really really like this year) and Gore. Beyond that, it’s something I’ll be watching this season and deconstructing a bit, because sweeping generalizations generally don’t mean much.

Other names that I like more: Jamaal Williams, Allen Hurns, Rex Burkhead, Ameer Abdullah, Tevin Coleman, Eric Decker, and Keenan Allen.

118 John Brown (ARI – WR) 64 -54

I understand that O.J. Howard is garnering some hype, and while I’m willing to go all in with my Austin Hooper love, I’m a bit weary on what Howard will bring to the table. I like Joe Williams, I really do, but I still believe in Carlos Hyde, and while the current staff doesn’t have anything invested with Hyde, there’s enough talent there to hold Williams off for a while. A great handcuff to own though. (And even with the “likes less” label here, the same could be said for James Conner and Robert Turbin, legitimate handcuffs.)

And yeah, I’ll always like John Brown less. I think former John Brown owners can back me up there…

Some other interesting names we differ on: Kirk Cousins, Julius Thomas, Devante Parker, Andy Dalton (GINGER LOVER, I KNEW IT), Doug Martin, Paul Perkins (surprise, surprise) and Doug Martin

    Brady
    McCoy
    Henry
    Benjamin
    Jeffery

    Who are you’re top 2 out of this list (won’t know who goes first). I am thinking I need a starting RB this year b/c I kept Henry but want to plan for future too.

    Jay, just found out I can’t keep Beckham. You said Wentz was a keeper previously, who should I keep out of the options below. Two keepers. Lose the pick of the round attached. Wentz and Adams? or

    Pick 2.

    Davante Adams 13th round.

      No offense, but are your league mates a little slow? I am in a 10-team league as well, and I can count five guys on that team that were taken in the first two rounds of our draft. How did you make it out with all of them? Crazy!

      I ended up with Julio Jones and AJ Green as well, but because I am in a keeper league. Maybe I could imagine you have the 10th pick, and everyone passes on WRs in the first round, so you are able to get Julio and AJ at the turn, but then to get Gurley and Jeffrey at the next turn, 20 picks later? Who were the other managers drafting? Whole teams of Ks and DSTs? haha. Can I join your league and add some competition?

    Hi Jay, I have Eddie Lacy and Darren McFadden on my team and the Zeke Owner has Thomas Rawls. If I was guaranteed the Cowboys starting RB until week 8, I’d hold. Given the new legal news, I’m not so sure. Is there value in doing a McFadden for Rawls swap, so I end up with a better chance at snagging the SEA starter, or am I giving away too much upside?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Iguy: I don’t think you’re giving up too much upside here, but I’d think the suspension is going to go through in some manner or form, so I’d treat McFadden as if he’s the guy for the next eight weeks.

    Hey hey hey (fat Albert voice) Happy Saturday Jam Master Jay!
    Man can you believe 5 days until week 1 officially starts with pats vs KC

    .5 PPR, based on my squad would you advise in looking to pull off a trade prior to week 1’s kickoff? I’ve never done a trade prior to week 1 kick off before not sure if I should start now or just sit back & stand pat?

    Drum roll here’s the roster

    QB: Winston, I don’t own a back up & looks like Winston doesn’t have a bye until week 11 that’s also why I just drafted one QB. If Winston does struggle out of the gate top available QBs are Wentz & Palmer.

    RB1: David Johnson, hm I wonder if he’ll get a flashy nickname or maybe David Johnson the name will speak for itself.
    RB2: Melvin Gordon

    WR1: alshon
    WR2: martavis Bryant hopefully he can stay off the weed
    WR3: Devante Parker

    TE: hunter Henry not sure if I should be crazy excited with Henry as my starting TE but I did get him late so low risk I guess

    Flex: may change each week, but as of now I have Christian mcaffery there

    D & kicker I’ll be streaming not worth mentioning lol

    Bench: Kareem hunt, Brandon Marshall, maclin, snead, hogan, Smallwood, Jamaal Williams, deangelo Henderson, Abdullah

    1.) based on my roster would you look to do a trade ASAP before the week 1 kick off? Trade my Gordon to receive a top level WR? What about either mike Evans, Baldwin, Michael Thomas, or any other WRs you can recommend in receiving by dealing Gordon?

    2.) stand pat & hold onto to Gordon. Do you think the new Chargers coach will be beneficial to Gordon?

    3.) look to trade my Abdullah + either Parker or Marshall to acquire a better WR? If you recommend that which level / examples of WRs should I target in dealing away Abdullah + WR?

    Flip side if I don’t do any trades thoughts on dropping either Smallwood, Henderson or snead?
    Snead is suspended but is he a good stash in the mean time?

    Available RBs kerwynn Williams DJ cuff, Oliver Gordon cuff, Jonathan Williams, Duke Johnson

    Available WRs: Kupp, galloday, Kendall wright, funchess, Paul Richardson, JJ Nelson

    Available TEs: fleener, Jared cook, gates, Engram

    Thanks man!

      Jay says:

      @Bob barker come on down: Sup Barker! Based on your roster, not really. I’d hold onto Gordon there, RBs are going to be hard to come by. And yes, I love that the Chargers are switching to zone blocking for the specific purpose of helping Gordon even more. I know your WRs seem weak, they are the weakest part of your team, but I’m okay standing pat for now. They should provide enough, at least enough for you to gauge what you’ll need in a few weeks…

      • Bob barker come on down says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Thanks man! You’d stand pat as well with the waiver adds? Do you see deangelo Henderson being valuable this season at some point?

        Just read the pats acquired Philip Dorsett from colts in exchange for Brisset. Also Sammie Coates to browns , chargers WR mike Williams won’t go on pup so that’s something worth monitoring, and skins released Matt jones. Craziness today!

        If matt jones ends up on a RB needy team such as Baltimore, Philly, Chiefs, Giants is he worth a speculative add? Granted if he goes to those teams or anywhere he’ll prob be a back up / rotational back

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Bob barker come on down: Yeah, unless something drastic happens… could be my own style, generally unless I’m streaming, I generally stand pat just to see what my team can do week 1.

          And yeah, I think the team matters with Jones.

    Deep league Q- Im racking my brain trying to make room for Paul Richardson- 0.5 PPr

    Possible drops- Chris Thompson- Kinda like him a lot
    Cole Beasley- Same as CT
    Taylor Gabriel- Idk what to think here
    Sterling Sheppard- Highest ranked but is there enough pie for sheppard to eat?
    Kamara- Id like to see a real game of his usage… possible slot touches w snead out?
    Smallwood- Not enough info to drop yet right?
    Marq Lee- Kinda like him

    I feel these are the huge descions, anybody whoes playable is super valuable as this is a super deep league- Tbh i cant belive richardson is even there still,especially after the kearse trade, have to act quick

      Jay says:

      @Playadlc: I’d hold there. I like the Rodgers side.

    Standard 10-tm dynasty, start 2 wr and a flex. I really need to rebuild at RB. Give #1 pick in rookie/FA draft for #s 5 & 6, or hold? Would likely end up with one (maybe both) of Mixon & D. Cook, and if only one is left I’d probably grab M. Bryant with the 6 pick. I assume Fournette, McCaffrey & Hunt go before #5, but it’s also entirely possible Mixon ends up a better dynasty asset than any of them.

    rather have ted ginn or randall cobb for the year?

    • Steve Anus says:

      @royce: ginn probably. cobb’s now had years of being mostly crap, ginn’s never been in a super high throwing level team like now, and till snead is back he’ll gain value.

    Hey Jay! If you wondered L Miller would you rather own D’Onta Foreman or Marlon Mack?

    2 QB PPR league my team –
    QB- Winston
    QB – Dal
    WR – Brandin Cooks
    WR – Demaryius Thomas
    WR – Davonte Adams
    RB – David Johnson

    I just traded AJ Green and Riddick for Brandin Cooks and Dalvin Cook was it a bad move for me? Also, should I drop anybody and try to pick up Mack somehow?

    Thanks!!
