Good Afternoon, loyal followers! Yes, I’m talking to you! All four of you! If you feel a little déjà vu reading this article, it’s totally fine. You’re not tripping from all the hallucinogens you dropped following The Grateful Dead tour around the country… You’re just re-reading a few names you’ve read here already. Since I’m sure you’ve all been absorbing these stat-filled riddles like sponges, I’m going to attempt to give you some opinions based on personnel and personal (not a stutter!) observations I’ve noticed over the first third of the season. However, I can’t completely avoid the numbers, so just bear with me. On a positive note, the last three weeks have been quite a resurgence for the Streamer Department. We’ve nailed three Top-10 QB’s, three Top-10 TE’s, a Top-10 DST, and 2 Top-10 Kickers in that time span. Let’s get after it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The last time we referenced a Denzel Washington movie in the title, things turned out pretty well… so I’m going to put my hands together and pray for a similar outcome. Hallelujah! Praise the Fantasy Overlord! Although he can’t harness Biblical powers, Eli Manning is your best overall streaming option for week 5. (Side note: Philip Rivers is the only QB that CAN harness Biblical powers, i.e. 2014). Before you stop reading, hear me out. Well, maybe I don’t blame you for leaving… I’d leave too… but if you’re willing to stay, there’s more to our streamers than just an Eli Manning recommendation. Last week in the Streamer Department, we nailed the 2nd overall defense (Miami), and a top-10 quarterback and kicker to boot (pun intended). That’s two solid weeks in a row! We’re looking to improve on that this week with the seven options below:Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you’ve missed out on Razzball the last few days, shame on you! But if you’ve been paying attention, you’ll probably notice that Niles Paul, Larry Donnell, and Heath Miller have been suggested as waiver adds here. I could write something on each one of those guys, but I won’t recreate the wheel. However, I can’t help my love for Paul, so I’ll have to hope it’s mutual… and while I wait to find out, I’ll lay down some more pro-Paul stats below and suggest another option at TE who hasn’t been mentioned. Are you ready? …Garret Graham. Sh*t! You can find that write-up here.
Last week was a mild success in the Streamers Department. We hit two top-10 TE’s and the 7th ranked QB. Let’s keep it rollin’!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Wow. Inspired much? Scenes like that can make grown men weep (not speaking from experience). Luckily for me, Razzball doesn’t take things that seriously… mostly because I cry easily, and Jay can’t just threaten to take me out at any moment in time. Have you seen what’s been happening in the NFL? Razzball would cut him… aaaand Fantasy Sports Network would drop their sponsorship. That would be after a series of varying reports about him being suspended for 2 weeks, then fully reinstated, and then barred from fantasy sports writing altogether. Am I bitter about Adrian Peterson? Nope (sarcasm). Let’s get on with it:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey everyone! I hope you accomplished nothing at work this week because you were rehashing your epic Week 1 fantasy victories! Don’t forget, everyone cares, so keep on telling your cube-mates about your MNF comeback (Yahoo gives away medals for that)! That said, let’s maximize your time to reach your weekly deadlines and get down to business. As a reminder, ownership percentages are taken from Yahoo:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello readers! I’m new in town, but I come bearing gifts! This is the first of many weekly streamer installments that I will be posting on Razzball. Each week, I will be burrowing into the depths of the waiver wire to pull out the most valuable streamer options for the week to come. I will target players less than 50% owned on Yahoo, in the hopes of providing you with an upside player widely available in your leagues, and I will focus on the QB, TE, DST, and K positions. I also intend to give you two options at each position, if possible, but I won’t force it! If things work out, and our relationship gets a little more serious, I’d say some of these waiver grabs could also translate to high upside tournament plays in daily fantasy football games. I said upside, not backside… things aren’t getting that serious! Additionally, following the Razzball tradition of transparency, I will analyze my picks after each week against their positional ranks to ensure full disclosure to the readers. Without further ado, let’s take a look at who has stream potential in Week One…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Gentlemen and four Ladies,
I know what you’re all thinking, “Who is this man-child showing off his above-average arsenal of hair products? Is this Grey from the past?” Now that’s humorous, and I’m not talking about my arm bone. That’d be humerus! Why would I write about that in the Football section of Razzball? I wouldn’t. Grey wrote about that on WebMD though, so you never know! I digress.
I’m here to introduce the 2014 Razzball Fantasy Football War Room. Get excited! I’ll preface my explanation with an apology for not getting this to the readers sooner. The Fantasy Football War Room was inspired by the one-and-only Fantasy Baseball War Room. It’s a great tool that I’ve used over the last few years to dominate my drafts. While developing my personal draft spreadsheet for football, I realized I could easily format it for use by the masses. There are features I hope to add in the future, but for the sake of time, I wanted to release the War Room while there was still an opportunity for Razzballers to use it!
So, let’s get down to brass tacks. Here is a brief rundown of what you’re getting in the 2014 Razzball Fantasy Football War Room:Please, blog, may I have some more?
