NFL: Chiefs v Colts Wild Card game

Welcome to the Week 7 edition of Start Em’ and Sit ‘Em.  I’m filling in for Zach this week, but he will be back next week, so don’t worry. If you are interested in reading my weekly article, I produce the streamer article which comes out on Thursdays.  I picked two players per position to start, and two to sit.  I know Zach usually does three, but I’m not as smart, talented, or energetic.  I’m just better looking. Whether any of that is true or not… well, let’s get right to it with some quarterbacks.

Welcome to the Razzball Streamer article. I’m going to keep the intro short tonight as I prepare for my debut podcast appearance with my fellow Razzballians.  We will talk about football, West World and perhaps even the debate, so be on the look out for that to come out.  We have had quite the week of running back injuries, surprise bye week torn ACLs, and other really weird stuff.  So we have plenty of streaming options which makes my job easy.  So let’s get right to it!

Welcome back to the Razzball streamer article.  I was watching the debate on Sunday for a little entertainment (sorry Collinsworth), and began to imagine what it would be like if Donald Trump played fantasy football.  He would be the guy in your league who makes awful trades and brags to you non-stop about them as if they were genius.  Donald Trump would be the guy who is 1-4 at this point but would point out that he is in the top half of the league in scoring but always gets screwed over with who he played against.  Trump would probably be the guy who would be campaigning to be the commissioner next year for no reason other than to threaten to kick the current commissioner out of the league. If Hillary Clinton played fantasy football it wouldn’t be much better.  Hillary would most likely collude with other league members to make unfair trades and when the commissioner would ask for the evidence of whether the trade was fair or not, those text messages would somehow be deleted.  Also trash talk in your league would be closely monitored for things that could be offensive, so that wouldn’t be very fun.  I’m glad we did this.  It wasn’t at all pointless…

Welcome back to the weekly streamer extravaganza.  Bye weeks are really catching stride with some key players so make sure to check out this article each week for some fill-ins.  Also there have been 12,642 injuries thus far so even if you aren’t in bye week hell, chances are your team is being ravaged by injuries.  Fantasy football really doesn’t make any sense, especially this season…

Welcome back to the Razzball streamer series!  Once again, we had a pretty solid Week 3, so I’ll look to keep the ball rolling into Week 4.  We have our first London game on the slate this week.  I’m always way more excited for London games during the week knowing that I can watch football at 8:30 A.M. than I am when I actually am about to… but I am going to go ahead and enjoy the prospect of watching 14ish straight hours of football. Today’s big streamer is Hunter Henry (13% owned), but even I’ll admit that this is an iffy play based on the health of Antonio Gates. But if Gates doesn’t play I expect Henry to eat… he saw his share of targets on his way to 5 catches for 76 yards against the Colts last week and New Orleans would be a great match up to continue that trend.  Philip Rivers will be attacking this weak defense through the air…

Welcome back to the streamer article.  We scored some touchdowns last week and some week 1 names turned in better performances in week 2.  I feel a lot better about the picks and I think we have a nice slew of streamers this week especially at the quarterback position.  As for the running back position, I am going to stay away from it.  I don’t like any of the match ups coming up this week from the bloodbath of running back injuries.  If I had to pick one, it would be Fozzy Whitaker from Carolina coming off of a 100 yard performance in relief of Jonathan Stewart.  If you are looking for running back replacements you should check out [email protected]’s week 3 waiver wire article and he can help guide you through it.  Or you are always welcome to ask me in the comment section.  Without further ado, here are your week 3 streamers, ownership percentages brought to you by Yahoo as of Tuesday evening…

Welcome back to the Razzball streamer article.  I have some work to do after week 1.  None of my plays had big days and a few were downright awful.  Maybe I dove a little deep, perhaps things didn’t fall my way, or maybe I, flat out, don’t know what I’m talking about.  Whatever the case may be, I’m going to try and be more useful to you this week.

I mentioned last week that I was going to add droppables to this article and we probably are a week or two away from that.  I don’t want to jump to conclusions after week 1.  If we were going to jump to conclusions after week 1, Adrian Peterson would be one of the worst running backs in the league and everyone would start Will Fuller over Dez Bryant.  Actually, I probably would start Will Fuller over Dez Bryant because of my pure disdain for Dez.  I never draft him so I don’t have to worry about that…

It’s officially Week 1.  We’ve finally made it and I can’t wait to ignore my fantasy baseball playoff matchups to solely focus on overreacting to Week 1 of the NFL.  We are also coming off of a great weekend of college football.  Depending on whom your team is: Congratulations, you guys are looking really solid this year.  Or maybe, your team already showed their true colors in week one, crawl into a hole for the rest of the season, you make bad decisions while picking allegiances to college football teams.

Streaming can even be important in Week 1 matchups. Guys that we drafted whom we thought would be magically okay for week 1, after they get their legs ripped off last season, sometimes aren’t ready to go right away.  Sometimes perceived studs don’t win the job right away and have to wait for a certain running back who has never done anything in the regular season to fail, again.  Your sleeper quarterback could be facing a nightmare pass rush, you don’t invest in defenses so you stream on a weekly basis.  This is what I am here for.  Also, a couple weeks down the road, when I get a feel for the season, I will be adding droppable players into this article.  Maybe it will help you decide who to get rid of to make room for these awesome streamers…

Welcome back to our division previews here at Razzball.  Today we are going to dive deeper into the NFC North than Mac Miller into Ariana Grande.  By the end of this article we will be more worthy to be kings of the North than Jon Snow himself.  Speaking of awesome shows, I’ve been watching Oz for the first time and I’m about halfway through the 2nd season. Does the narrator in the wheelchair ever go away? Please somebody tell me I don’t have to go through 5 seasons of this.

Well anyways, this division has pretty average talent all the way around besides some outliers which we will get into.  Just a heads up, if you’re looking for tight end takes, you clicked on the wrong division preview.  There’s nothing to see here if you’re looking for top 10 guys.  As always we will go in order of most fantasy relevant offenses…

nfc-south-logos-800

Let’s continue our division previews on the side of the NFC. We will go with my personal favorite division, the NFC South. You might be asking why is the NFC South my favorite division? You might also be asking why would anyone care what my favorite division is? Good question but I’ll tell you anyways. I’m a die-hard Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan.

My childhood as a football fan was pretty awesome. Tony Dungy was pimping the division (NFC Central or whatever it was called at the time) with a bad ass defense including John Lynch, Ronde Barber, Derrick Brooks, and the always classy Warren Sapp. Warrick Dunn and Mike Alstott did most if not all of the productive work on offense. All they needed was a touchdown and a couple field goals to win each game so that was fine. When Jon Gruden was hired in 2002 the Bucs moved to the newly established NFC South, won the first title in the division’s history and Tampa’s first ever Super Bowl. Fast forward 14 years, Tampa has only won the division twice since that year, and haven’t made the playoffs since 2007. I might as well be a Browns fan at this point. Anyways let’s get it, we’ll start with the most high powered offense of last season.
