Are you having fun yet? We’ve made it through week 5 with the NFL stumbling ahead trying their best to avoid Covid catastrophes. We’ve had rescheduled games and now we even have RB1s getting DUIs and others getting outright released! It is making it harder and harder for us to navigate the waters and put out winning lineups in our fantasy leagues, but we are doing it and hopefully you’re doing it well. With all the injuries, planned and unplanned bye weeks and Covid uncertainty it is even more important to find productive players to put in your flex spots. But don’t worry, we are here for you my friends.

Please, blog, may I have some more?

Week 4 brought us our first bye week due to the Covid cancellation of the Titans and Steelers game and fantasy managers scrambled to adjust. Thankfully, everybody is ok and the NFL had a simple fix issuing a bye to the teams and having an easy way to reschedule the game. With the recent news that there are still positive tests coming out of Tennessee, and unsanctioned practices being held as well (Morons!), I believe their week 5 game against the Bills is in serious jeopardy. Now we have planned and unplanned bye weeks and Covid uncertainty added to the flurry of injuries we’ve already dealt with, making it is even more important to find productive players to put in your flex spots. We have to be prepared!

As you know, every Thursday here on Razzball, I will be posting the weeks “Sexy Flexies” to give you a couple of players to consider starting in your flex spot. The objective isn’t to point out the obvious guys you’re starting in your RB or WR slots, but to take a look at a couple of players who are a bit more under the radar. These will likely be guys that you won’t start every week but will be good rotational pieces in the flex spot of your lineup based on matchup and opportunity.

It was only a matter of time before Covid appeared in the NFL. Thankfully, everybody is ok and it appears that no games will be cancelled and week 4 will have its regularly scheduled number of games. As of the time of this writing, the Steelers/Titans game is looking like it will be moved back to Monday or Tuesday, but not cancelled. We have dealt with a flurry of injuries and have moved players up our fantasy depth charts into starting positions. With these moves, it is especially important to find productive players to put in your flex spots.

Week 2 was brutal for a lot of fantasy managers with the injury bug biting some of the biggest names in football. In addition to Michael Thomas already being out, we saw Saquan Barkley lost for the season and Christian McCaffrey sent to the IR with an ankle injury. There’s no replacing players of this magnitude, but if you drafted well, you have guys who can move up your fantasy depth chart and into those starting positions. More than ever now, if you’re dealing with injuries and moving former flex players into starting roles, it is going to be important to find productive players to put in your flex spots.

We have turned the page on week 1 of the 2020 NFL season and are on to preparing for week 2. Hopefully, you started off your fantasy football season with wins, but even if you came up short don’t panic yet. Even some of the best in fantasy and real football get off to slow starts sometimes; just ask Saquan Barkley and Michael Thomas!

Well my friends, we are finally here! We have made it through months of gushing over rookie running backs, watching Russell Wilson post videos on social media as “Mr. Unlimited” and analyzing based off shirtless workout pics of DK Metcalf, Austin Ekeler and Kahale Warring. Finally, week 1 of the 2020 NFL season is upon us!

Fantasy Football Draft Season is at its peak with the NFL season kick-off right around the corner! I recently posted a draft strategy article focusing on where to target quarterbacks in your draft and broke the position down into “pockets.” The article had some great interactions and a few people even reached out to me on twitter saying that they liked the way it was broken down into pockets and asked for more. As I mentioned in the previous article, it is extremely important to have a plan when you enter your draft room to be successful. We know the guy who just prints out the rankings list five minutes before the draft usually is not the league winner!

What we will do today is break down the tight end position. Again, the most common leagues are 10 or 12 team redraft leagues where you start 1 TE each week. Depending on the size of your roster and how many bench spots you’re allotted, you will most likely draft either 1 or 2 tight ends in your draft. I will take injury risks into consideration, but do not rank based on possible injury. I don’t have a crystal ball and none of us can predict injury, so it won’t weigh too much on what pocket I put a player in. What I am going to do here for you is break down the tight end position into pockets, so you have a road map of where to target drafting your tight end.

By formulating a plan in pockets, you don’t go on tilt if someone snipes the one player you were targeting from you. If you are looking for breakdowns of the players, or rankings and projections, check out some of our amazing tools like Donkey Teeth’s rankings and Rudy Gamble’s projections! Also consider Rudy’s great in season tools subscription which starts at only $17.99 for the whole season! Let’s take a look at the TE pockets and nail down a plan on when to go after your guy!

Football season is right around the corner and leagues everywhere are scrambling to set up their fantasy drafts. Things may be a bit different this year for some leagues. Leagues that have previously gathered in bars, living rooms, backyards and office conference rooms may be moving from live drafts to online drafts this season due to Covid-19. Some leagues are incorporating Zoom meetings into their drafts so the smack talking can continue. Whichever way you’re doing your draft this season, you need to get ready and have a plan and that’s what were here for!

Today’s article is going to help you prepare for your draft and help you plan when and how to draft your quarterbacks. The most common leagues are 10 or 12 team redraft leagues where you start 1 QB each week, so in those leagues, you want to have 2 solid quarterbacks when you walk out of the draft room. Whether you’re playing against your brother-in-law Doug or Chad from Accounting, its important for you to go into a draft with a road map to success and that’s what I’m going to break down for you here in this article, specifically where to target drafting your quarterbacks.

“I’m just here so I won’t get fined”, “I’m just ’bout that action boss” and “Yea”. Seattle Seahawks fans know these famous quotes very well; they are from fan favorite Marshawn Lynch. To this day I still use “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” when I’m stuck going somewhere I don’t want to be (like the time my wife dragged me to look at wedding invitations on a football Sunday!). It comes as no surprise, that when Marshawn was asked after the Seahawks’ wildcard win last season about the performance of his rookie teammate DK Metcalf, he had another “Lynch-ism” to share with the media. When asked what impresses him most about DK Metcalf, Lynch responded with “That he a big ass dude who can move like that”. Classic Beast Mode! 

If you remember back to last year’s off season, there was a ton of buzz at the NFL combine about Ole Miss wide receiver DK Metcalf. All the social media buzz was shirtless pictures showing what a massive human being he was, not only being completely JACKED, but having abs that the Sigma Alpha Epsilon bros could crush beer cans on! At 6’3″ and 230 lbs, this Goliath of a human, who was built like a linebacker instead of a wide receiver, went out there and ran a 4.33 40-yard dash, displayed a 40.5 inch vertical and did 27 reps on the bench press – the most reps by a wide receiver since Greg Little did 27 back in 2011! The NFL Network was comparing this man to Batman – a superhero!

“To ride a horse at a gallop; ride at full speed”. That is the dictionary.com definition of the word “gallop”. So what happens when you change a vowel? What is the dictionary definition of the NAME Gallup? Is it “breakout,” “efficient,” “underestimated,” “regression”? These are the questions that many fantasy football drafters are asking right now when they’re staring at Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup in their queue this draft season. Should you hop on and ride at full speed into your championship?
