I was reflecting back on my 2015 Fantasy Football season and I started to sob a bit. I know it sounds ridiculous, but before you pass judgment, they were tears of joy because Fantasy Baseball is right around the corner. Now, you might be wondering why I bring this up and I’m not even sure why. Oh, yeah, it’s because this year’s 2015 Razzball Commenter Grand Champion and the winner of a $150 Best Buy gift card and a Razzball T-Shirt is actually a Razzballer I know from the baseball side of the site…Please, blog, may I have some more?
One playoff week down, two more to go. Are you guys as excited as I am… for Christmas! I lost every playoff match-up except one, so I’m not feeling football right now. By the way, speaking of Christmas, I just got back from my daughter’s Christmas, I mean “Holiday” program. I never thought it was possible, but they found a way to take the cute out of Christmas… again. Seriously, it was the most pretentious ball of blah that was only topped by last year’s snooze-fest that featured the “In A Gadda Da Vida” of Christmas songs. Sorry, I had to get that off my chest. But really though, it was worst than taking an elite running back in the first round this year. Oh wait, I either took Antonio Brown or ODB in the first round of every draft (one league was a shameful auto draft). As I did last week, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that we are still writing five days a week on the baseball side, and with January Grey right around the corner, you need to get over there where the party literally never stops. The daily words of wisdom by Grey and people talking about their keepers and dynasty leagues keeps enough buttons open on the blouse that any real fantasy baseball fan must take a peek. Don’t forget, we should be launching the RCL’s over there in February. Now that I got that out of the way, let’s get to the ranks and where you can see your name in hyper link!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last time I wrote this, I was pissed we still had seven undefeated teams. Well, that was the week before Thanksgiving and I was five pounds lighter. I’m happy to say we now have zero undefeated teams and my hater side gets a double shot of satisfaction. Why you so hateful FOH? Because if life was all about happy, then it wouldn’t be the journey it’s suppose to be. Now, for those of you in the RCL or any league with any sense, the playoffs started this week. Playoffs? You want to talk about Playoffs? . Yeah, I went there with the insertion of an “overused but yet never gets old” Mora clip… and I got to use the word “insertion” in a post. Hehe! This is the best part of the Fantasy Football season. I don’t get crazy over the week-in and week-out part of this game. I just try to make sure I make the playoffs. I made it in four of five leagues *high fives self* this year with my one whiff in the writers league. That bums me out since I think I have a strong team right now and scored more points than three of the teams in the playoffs. Whatevs, that’s the Fantasy Football life. Only three-and-half months until baseball starts and the daily musings of this guy. Wait a minute, why wait til’ Spring? He and Mike are chopping it up every day right now on the baseball side. If you didn’t do well in the RCL football leagues this year, you can always redeem yourself in the OG RCL’s! Sorry, I must apologize, I have been digesting 100 times more fantasy baseball than football lately. Two crazy dynasties and my off season work with the Big Magoo has me in Spring Training already. Anythehoo, on to the standings…Please, blog, may I have some more?
So I’m back up in the game
Running things to keep my swing
Letting all the people know
That I’m back to run the show
The return of the
Mack Me! I actually don’t really run anything here, hell not even in my own house, but in my car, I’m the boss! We all need theme music when we walk in a room, I would like to say mine is “Return of the Mack”, but I ain’t that cool. It would probably be more like this jam. Okay, that is a cool jam too, but the title says a lot about me. Speaking of jams, has anyone heard the new Logic album? It’s not as good as his last album, but has some damn good cuts on it like this one. What’s that? You never heard his last album? Well here is my favorite cut. If this is all too much for you, or you need me to rewind even further back, and maybe you are a fan of 90’s era rap, then check this one out. *counts hyper-links* Okay, I think I have reached my “Jay hates all my hyperlinks” threshold. Speaking of Jay, how ’bout them Chargers. Low blow jack-a**. Yes, that is me talking to myself but my other personality doesn’t see it that way. Sorry, Jay, better luck next year! Wait, I’m here to do an update. Let’s get to it… I know you all like that I talk about you.
Another week, another me, wait… that makes no sense. Let’s try that again. Another week, another me talkin’ about you. Yeah, that’s the ticket… I’d buy that for a dollar. I wish I could buy anything for a dollar these days. Stupid inflation, economics and what not. Speaking of buying, can I buy a win over here? It’s been one of my worst seasons and I don’t see it getting any better. It’s so bad that I haven’t even had to deal with Injurpocalypse 2015 or whatever they are calling it. Our resident man in the trainers room Lance goes over it in great detail here. Wait, I forgot, I had one big boo-boo when Charles went down in one league, but that was an auto-draft, so I feel I deserve the punishment for brain farting on the draft time. It’s cool though, I’m a glutton for masochism. Speaking of a little masochism, I’ve had to re-schedule my latest tattoo appointment twice now and I have no idea why I brought that up. But since I did, what’s been your most painful tattoo? This of course makes me wonder where on Jay’s body is his Chargers tattoo. I’m betting on the left butt cheek. [Jay’s Note: That was the most natural place…] Anythehoo, enjoy the Robo Cop GIF from the title…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome back to the best Razzball Football RCL and RazzDP update around. I know, I know, it’s the only one… and that’s why it’s the best! After a little mini-vacation by me (I was sick last week), I have returned to fill you in with what is going on. I have a confession to make. I am having some serious Fantasy Baseball withdrawal right now. Anyone else with me? In the past, football provided the methadone I needed to hold me off til spring, but it’s just not cutting it this year. To kill time, I’ve been buried in Netflix catching up on some series (Narcos!) and watching movies I normally would pay no attention too. I came across Europa Report and The Iceman, and was pleasantly surprised. One is a great space flick, shot very well, that gives you that uneasiness, and the other is a true story about a mob hit man played by the always creepy Michael Shannon. Both these flicks are thumb uppers for me. Hey wait, enough about Netflix, this is suppose to be about football…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week I tried to lure Jay into a Chargers trap. The results left me thinking, I just wasn’t trying hard enough. It made me wonder what the Chargers fans worst case scenario would be… and that would be the L.A. Rams (which I want), the St. Louis Chargers, and the San Diego Raiders. [Jay’s Note: I’ve lived both in San Diego and Los Angeles, so I wouldn’t really care what city they call home, but if St. Louis can’t support the Rams, I doubt the NFL will want to return there for quite a while…] Now before you call me cray-cray, hear me out. The Raiders are known to be a little evil on the management side when it comes to moving, remember Irwindale? The Chargers biggest rival is the Raiders, and after this clip, I would have to wonder if this stadium sharing would work? The Chargers have no money, or so they allege, and after the Rams get L.A., there will be a better opportunity in that nice riverfront stadium in St. Louis for the Chargers. The Raiders would never move there, but the Chargers, it kinda makes sense from a color scheme point of view. The fans probably wouldn’t even notice, a ram horn, a lightning bolt, what’s the difference? Actually Jay may like this, as it cuts his distance in half to attend a home game. The Raiders will then open their checkbook, get the deal done in San Diego, and be owning the stadium where they will host lots of Super Bowls. I just don’t want to watch any more of these fights… actually yes I do. Nothing like a good parking lot brawl to remind you what football is all about… drinking!Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know what I love around here… Jay. If I even mention the Chargers, I get an editors note. [Jay’s Note: True.] Like if I wanted to be a jerk, I would say the Chargers were originally from L.A. and need to come back home again. Or that I was a Denver fan since they drafted Elway and I found out my uncle had Bronco season tickets from day one of the franchise, but I wore this hat prior to that. Yup, I thought it was cool because it looked like the old Pittsburgh Pirates hat and it was 1980… I was five-years-old. Speaking of the Chargers, with Gates returning, will this completely change everything they have done in fantasy so far? I hope you sold Keenan Allen… I’m kidding of course, but situations like this do worry me. Philip has a bestie already Ladarius and Keenan. Antonio es numero uno. Like we say on the baseball side, I’ll be watching this situation like a cyclops with a monocle. With possible injuries to Johnson and Floyd, this could be a real shizz show to predict when they are healthy. I also wonder if Woodhead will be catching as many balls out of the backfield. My Samoan NFL guru friend thinks that if they were smart the would line Greene up as a wide receiver and really mess with their opponents. These are just my thoughts when looking at what a team will do when someone this important returns to the field. It’s football, the teams change game plans like Tehol changes booty calls… week-to-week. Wait, a minute, I’m here to write an update… or am I?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to the first RCL update of the year! Please come in, say hello, have some of the complimentary beverages, and peep at how you stack up against the competition. I’ll be your host this season, as I have just finished up on the baseball side. In case you don’t know me, my name is Jack, I’m a Virgo, I like short walks to the fridge and women that aren’t afraid to order take-out if they can’t cook. This year we have a new addition to the RCL Update, the RazzDP’s. Razzballs first ever IDP leagues. [Jay’s Note: I want to thank everyone who decided to join this new format!] After a successful beta last year, we decided to expand the leagues, up the scoring and really people, we have one of the best IDP writers in the game and it would be a waste to not take him on at his own game. I have been a huge fan of the format for a long time and together with Kevin founded these leagues to make it more fun for you. One thing I have always loved about Razzball is how much we interact with our readers. I can’t think of another fantasy site on the net that interacts so well with their community. As a former commenter-turned-writer, I have an extra special passion for this place I like to call home. I’ll also be available in here to answer any football related questions (I actually started writing on the football side first) or if needed, some TV or music suggestions. I hope everyone is having a great year so far and I look forward to all your comments. Now on to the ranks…Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s up Razzicans! If you are still here, you are either still playing or just can’t let us go. If it’s the latter, then all I can say is watch this and don’t take it personal. I’m kidding, glad to have you. We’re doing something a little different this week to close out the 2014 fantasy season. I’m also writing this post with my pants on for once. (It’s about as awkward as that one time I wore boxers to gym class during wrestling week.) Here is the breakdown, I’m covering the NFC games and my boy Ralph is covering the AFC later today. I’m gonna gloss over the players that should be usable and play the whole game or at least have some level of relevance.Please, blog, may I have some more?
