Rudy Gamble, Razzball co-godfather, joins B_Don and Donkey Teeth on the podcast! With the playoffs upon us, we discuss our Super Bowl predictions (one of B_Don’s has already been eliminated). Rudy digs into his projection system results for the season and we compare how his method may benefit you in a different way than some other ranking styles, and where he and DT finished the season in the rankings contest.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth with a holiday episode for ‘ship week. Apologies for the late release, travel and family took up all my time over the holidays, and that’s what it’s all about. We discuss the last round of the RazzBowl before we get into week 16. 

We discuss the Steelers offense and how much can you trust Russ. Yes, this information will be old by the time you listen to it. If you want to skip that, jump to around the 17 minute mark and we pick up with our thoughts toward positional dynasty rankings for this 2020 class before the end of the season.

Hopefully you are still playing at this point in the season. If you are, best of luck! Let’s go get those ‘ship! Whether your trophy is more of a dingy or a yacht, go get that boat!

This will be the last TE rankings post of the season, so, if you don’t listen to the podcast, I wish you a Happy Holiday season. 

There’s not much left to do in the way of 2020 ROS rankings, so, let’s ask Doc Brown to fire the DeLorean up to 88 and look ahead to 2021 TE rankings. As it is an early list, wanted to note that I tended to lean on the cautious side for free agents and didn’t rank them too highly. Tight ends are more situationally dependent than maybe any other position in our game, so, where they end up can vastly alter their value.

Week 1 of the playoffs is in the books and the podcast duo of B_Don and Donkey Teeth are happy with their performances with DT moving up into the Championship Bracket of the RazzBowl 2. The Browns and Ravens game was as entertaining as we’ve seen in the MNF spotlight this year. The Brown(s) Town keeps following around Cleveland, first it was OBJ and now it was the poo minute break for LJax.

We go over some of the injuries from week 14 and the potential fallout for Matthew Stafford, Deebo Samuel, and the Dolphins pass catchers. Speaking of Deebo Samuel, is it time to officially label him as injury prone, and has fellow Niner pass catcher Brandon Aiyuk passed him?

The guys bring up some of the RBs that have transformed into league winners here at the end of the year in David Montgomery, Derrick Henry, and Cam Akers. A couple of DT’s favorites in Miles Sanders and Jonathan Taylor made up for some of their previous transgressions by blowing up this week. We review some of the other happenings from week 14 before wrapping up with our A**hole of the Week!

It’s playoff time! Win or go home and a good week from your TE can be a big bonus for your squad. As I’ve done the last few weeks, I created a larger stat sheet for everyone to review that you can see here. I got a couple requests to edit the file last week, and while I won’t be granting edit access to the spreadsheet, you can go to ‘File’ and ‘Make a Copy’ for yourself.

Back to review the crucial week 13 in the NFL, B_Don and Donkey Teeth mix up the order of the show and start with the many A**holes of the Week as we discuss some of the happenings from the week that was in the NFL. From player usage to coaching errors to refs to anything else that affected teams in week 13, we go over it all before we look into the #RazzBowl playoffs. 

There weren’t many big injuries in week 13 thankfully, but those teams that lost Antonio Gibson might disagree. We discuss the WFT RB situation and whether we think you can start anyone in that backfield. Speaking of messy RB situations, the Falcons have joined the ranks of teams utilizing RBs in such a way that ruins fantasy value for all of us. 

B_Don asks DT about his boy Baker Mayfield, and where he fits among QBs for the ROS. There was more QB talk than normal as it seems to be the biggest point of change to review. Jalen Hurts is going to get the nod for the Eagles over Carson Wentz. Kyler hasn’t quite been the same since the injury. Then, we look at a couple rookie QBs in Herbert and Tua to examine how we would use them in week 14 and for the rest of the season. One last thing, why isn’t Gardner Minshew starting?

Hope that you had a good Thanksgiving whether you spent it with family, friends, or relaxing at home. I’m back again this week to bring you another updated ROS TE rankings. Don’t forget to check out the master spreadsheet *here* for more information including ROS schedule strengths. Of course, after Thanksgiving comes Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

 

Playstation 5

Kelce is the top TE and the PS5 (or the XBox Series X) are the top options this holiday season. Kelce has 65.8 more points on the season than the next TE, Darren Waller. Over the last 5 weeks, he has 36.1 more points than the next TE (Eric Ebron) despite having a bye week in that period. Kelce has a couple less than ideal match ups versus the Broncos and Dolphins the next 2 weeks, but then gets an average one vs. the Saints before a great one with the Falcons in your ‘ship week. BTW, yeah, I got a PS5 during one of the releases, YEAH BOY!

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back to look back at the weird week that was week 12. Update after Monday Night: it looks as though DT has just missed the cut in the Wild Card bracket by 2 spots. B_Don missed the cutline in the Championship bracket by 1 bloody point! (as of Tuesday) ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

One thing that is consistent, DA Bears offense is still awful. Meanwhile, Tyreek just went off to single handedly win people match-ups. Is he the top WR ROS though? We discuss Austin Ekeler’s return and where he fits in among RBs coming down the stretch with Herbert at the helm.

We end the show with some discussion about DT’s dynasty rankings that are starting to take shape. How to value age and competing windows are big pieces of the puzzle, which makes dynasty rankings a little more muddied than redraft ranks. Should A.J. Brown be in the same tier with D.K. Metcalf? Should they both be enough to get you CMC? Where do the top QBs fall for each of us? Listen in and find out.

Alright everyone, it’s a hectic week with the holidays, so I could only find time to get you the rankings with no write ups this week. Apologies, and the write ups will be back next week. In lieu of write ups, here’s another big stat sheet including upcoming schedules and the points allowed vs TE.

Stuffing

B_Don and Donkey Teeth join you right before turkey day! While you’re out doing the last minute shopping, grab your headphones and listen to the newest episode! 

Best wishes for a speedy recovery for the talented, young QB, Joe Burrow. Can you trust the weapons around him moving forward?

Taysom Hill shows up many times throughout the show as we discuss the impact he will have for your team, and maybe more importantly, how it appears he may impact some of the other members of the Saints.

Speaking of finally getting their chance, J.K. Dobbins and Jonathan Taylor finally got their chance and looked impressive in week 11.

We include Damien Harris in our talks and then determine where we’d have each of them for rest of the season. 

As we move on to WRs, it’s time to look at the Dallas WR situation and determine who we trust for the playoff run. Then, we discuss some dynasty WR rankings with some who have hit the ground running and some that have struggled in their first year.
