If you wouldn’t mind taking a break from the treadmill that you are using to work off Thanksgiving dinner and all of the leftovers we still have a slate of games ahead of us for week 12. First off, if we’re keeping it real, I don’t think the Steelers and Ravens play their game this week. I would get the players that you have involved in that game out of your lineups. It might already be cancelled by the time this comes out overnight. The injury list continues to get long and be full of terrors. For whatever reason, I decided to turn on my notifications for my ESPN app and it’s pinging like a group chat with injury and COVID designations. So let’s get to the updated injury list and updated rankings.

It’s Thanksgiving! I hope your morning is going more smoothly than mine is, there’s nothing like waking up to a still frozen turkey that you put in the fridge to thaw out on Monday. The virtual guests are going to be very uncomfortable watching me have a meltdown. At least the Ravens and Steelers battle it out tonight in what should be one of the most exciting Thanksgiving games that we’ve seen in years. Oh wait, that got pushed back until Sunday? We’re off to a rough start on Thanksgiving. It sort of makes me want to board a plane and just get out of dodge like the mayor of Denver.

Happy Thanksgiving week, y’all. You might be thinking that this post came out a little earlier than usual and you would be correct. You’re so observant. With turkey day on Thursday, Donkey Teeth and I are putting out rankings out a little earlier this week for your convenience. I will also be putting out my start and sit for week 12 tomorrow afternoon. 

Quite frankly, Thursday’s slate is terrible. I was looking forward to Ravens-Steelers until, you know, the best room on the Ravens’ offense was ravaged with Covid. The Lions suck, the Texans almost suck, the Cowboys suck, and WFT sucks. But, at least it’s football. Here are my early rankings for week 12.

It is my favorite week of the football season! We are getting close to the fantasy playoffs, the standings are painting a clearer picture in our leagues, and it’s Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving week means vacation from real life responsibilities for me. Not here at Razzball, but my actual 9-5. Which is actually 5-3:30. Early mornings, yuck. All that I plan on doing this week is proposing trades, eating, writing, and finally watching Yellowstone. Everyone watches this damn show so I have to find out what is behind all of the buzz. Is this Kevin Costner’s best performance since Draft Day? I will be sure to let you know as soon as I do. 

Weirdly enough, we are looking at much better weather this week for fantasy and real life scoring. There isn’t going to be a violent wind storm in Cleveland for the first time in what seems like ever. Green Bay is playing indoors. Can Aaron Rodgers crack the code of Indy’s tough defense? My betting card is full of underdogs this week, which is always anxiety inducing, but we’ll see what happens. Below will be the updated rankings and injury report. After taking a look at that, hit up the comment section for all of your fantasy lineup needs.

Another week, another grind! We’re really getting to the important weeks of the season. We have three more W’s to get to either make the playoffs or get the best seeding we can. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.gif. I know making decisions on who to start and sit isn’t as tough as it usually is this year because of the injury cesspool, but I’m here to help. Let’s get to the players that I really like for week 11.

It’s Jameis Winston week! I’ve been waiting all season for this. I had a dream last night. It was Mr. 30/30 himself driving down the field. He threw a pick six on the first series to get it out of his way. Normal stuff. The Saints are driving down the field and the Falcons don’t have an answer for this drive. It’s 2nd and 2 at the Falcons’ 11 yard line and wouldn’t you know it, frickin’ Taysom Hill comes in. Taysom jukes, breaks a tackle, touchdown. Taysom Hill ruins everything, including my Jameis dreams. It was only a dream! I have Jameis as my QB6 in a game that the Saints should dominate. You can find the rest of my rankings below.

What a huge weekend for sports. On Saturday, the Masters got underway to finish the second round while the sun was still rising and then the 3rd round immediately after. There was a full slate of college football to follow. And now on Sunday, we have the final round of the Masters and another NFL Sunday. The NFL is the biggest conglomerate in the sports world, but they moved all of the good games to the late afternoon to make way for the final round of the Masters. What a power move for the golf world to force the NFL’s hand! So far, it doesn’t appear that any games are in danger of the Covid postponement, so let’s get right into the injury report and updated rankings.

We have reached the double digit weeks! Usually I would say something like this season is flying by, but it absolutely isn’t. It is crawling. Maybe it’s the injury bug that has taken the NFL by storm. Pretty hard to fill out a lineup every week with healthy players that have a good chance to score. But we have to do what we have to do because a championship in 2020 still counts if they make it 7 more weeks! A fantasy title in this season could carry more weight than in seasons’ past depending on how you look at it. On one hand, the difficulty level is extremely higher, but luck also plays a factor so maybe the manager with all of the injury luck takes the ship this year. It’s hard to imagine anybody not running into a problem with at least one of their first picks in the first few rounds though. Here are the starts and sits for week 10 of the most interesting fantasy football season we’ve had to this point.

The NFL approved a 16 playoff team format in the event that games get cancelled. It makes sense, I guess. There were 56 new cases of Covid around the NFL in the first week of November. We’re really reaching the danger zone, folks. On the bright side, when things have looked grim earlier in the season, most of the games have been played outside of a few exceptions. Do you guys and gals have a plan for your fantasy leagues if things get really bad? No seriously, I’m curious because I don’t and I probably need to. We can go ahead and dive right in to the week 10 rankings.

Quarterback is so important this year. The best have been great (except for Lamar Jackson) and there have been some breakouts! Chances are that if you drafted or scooped up a rookie QB off of the waiver wire, you’re pretty happy right now. It’s kind of rare that the top 3 quarterbacks taken in an NFL draft are so fantasy relevant in their rookie season. It’s even more surprising because just one rookie quarterback began the year as the starter under center.

But it’s not just rookies that are shining. Kyler Murray had a good rookie year and has made his second year campaign an even bigger deal. Many of us expected this with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins, but there was clearly still value in his draft price. Josh Allen hadn’t had a 300 yard passing game in his first two seasons coming into this year, but yesterday, he threw for over 300 yards in the first half against Seattle. I have four names to get to this week. Let’s get started.
