As you might have noticed, we’ve already gone into offseason mode here at Razzball Football, but don’t worry to all of you who are in unique formats, we’ll continue to do weekly rankings right up to the Super Bowl (and you’ll find our Week 17 Rankings after the jump). But for all intents and purposes, the majority of all leagues have come to an end, including our wonderful Razzball Commenter Leagues, of which we’ll be announcing the grand prize winner later this week. But basically, the rankings have been concluded this year and I’m happy to report, with FantasyPros’ help, our final results (the week-by-week results are available after the jump)…
|2015||57.5%||22 out of 123||59.9%||51.6%||Top 20%|
|2014||58.1%||31 out of 125||60.7%||50.6%||Top 25%|
As you can see, not only did we improve from last season, we also finished just outside the coveted “Top-20” of all “experts”. (And seeing as how nearly all of those top-20 sites only offer rankings through paid subscriptions, I’m proud we were able to have such a strong showing while also sharing that with our readers without a paywall.)
Now, I don’t normally toot my own horn, mainly because my rib cage is still largely intact, but I want to note that we finished higher than essentially all of the industry leaders; Dalton Del Don, Liz Loza, Andy Behrens, Brad Evans, and Brandon Funston of Yahoo! Sports, John Halpin and Adam Meyer of Fox Sports, Chet Gresham of WalterFootball, Jamey Eisenberg of CBS Sports, Scott Engel of RotoExperts, and Tristen Cockcroft and Eric Karabell of ESPN Sports. (Matthew Berry has removed himself from this group. No clue as to why…) What does this actually mean for you? Well, I’m not totally sure, but you should probably stay away from Yahoo for a while. That’s my take on the situation.
Honestly though, I’d like to think that the community found some sort of fantasy success by reading through my drunken ramblings and d*ck jokes. And if you didn’t, well, based on our accuracy results, you probably did better than most, right? Haha, just kidding. All of our teams sucked complete and utter ass this year because 90% of the league’s players had season-ending injuries by Week 3. So maybe the secret is: ranking is totally easier when only 10% of the player pool is alive? Now there’s something to think about.
You’re welcome, all of you Statistic majors needing a thesis topic…
