Before Game Of Thrones, HBO had a terrible-but-awesome show about some bros in Hollywood. It was called Entourage. I guess it was called Entourage because the friends formed an entourage. High brow stuff! This show was exactly what 19-21 year-old me needed every Sunday. Would I again binge watch the show that got me into serialized television even with a lot better television coming out almost weekly? Hell yeah I would.

Anyways, if you haven’t seen Entourage, Johnny Drama is the less famous brother of Vincent Chase, but before Vince got famous, Drama starred in a terrible cult classic show called Viking Quest. The way Minnesota played last night is probably comparable to Viking Quest if it were an actual show.

We had another awesome week for Razzball football rankings. Rudy put the team on his back and finished 1st for week 7 in the FantasyPros accuracy contest. If you’re keeping score at home, Rudy has a first and second place finish through 7 weeks so far this season. We are halfway through the season, it’s time to get serious. You can still subscribe to Rudy’s tools after a 7-day free trial! You did click here for my rankings so here you go!

There’s nothing more frustrating than a pickup recommendation that looks bad on the surface because of a bad performance in a tough matchup. I think you know where this is going. Let’s chat about Sam Darnold. I’ve been touting Sam Darnold since last Tuesday when I filled in for Boof and submitted the waiver wire column for you, my faithful readers. I even put Sam Darnold as my pickup of the week for the FantasyPros waiver wire blurb this week.

You have to love when two guys have career days and the starting percentages are probably pretty low on them. I say pretty low because I’m sure there were people in bad bye week spots or in deeper leagues that had to start Chase Edmonds or Marvin Jones Jr. Marvin Jones is a solid WR3 for fantasy but I don’t think that many were elated about slotting him in against the Vikings. For those that were savvy enough to start Jones Jr., he rewarded them with 10 catches, 93 yards and 4 touchdowns. That is a best ball format wet dream. In the leagues that I own Jones Jr., I can’t see myself leaving him on the bench again against the Giants next week. 

Chase Edmonds was a different type of situation. David Johnson was named active going into the game and he took one carry for 2 yards and didn’t touch the ball again for the rest of the game. I’m guessing that the majority of people that heard Johnson was active took Edmonds out of their lineup. Well, Edmonds carried the ball 27 times for 126 yards and 3 touchdowns. Incredible. Let’s get to some other performances from the early slate on Sunday.

Six weeks down and seven weeks to go for the regular fantasy football season. The weather forecasts are looking pretty decent across the board outside of a few possible spurts of rain. During the early games we have what could be shootouts between the Atlanta Falcons and the Los Angeles Rams and also the New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals. In the late afternoon games we have a couple of grinder Big 10 type football games between the Saints and Bears and also the Titans and Chargers. Let’s get into the injuries and rankings.

I have really been pounding the keyboard this week, but it is a labor of love. Zach will be back next week for all of your start/sit needs, and I have you covered today. The two most disappointing quarterbacks are on a bye along with the season’s WR1, among others. The starts and sits are more crucial than ever as we head into the middle weeks of the fantasy football regular season. Let’s get those wins! We’ll start with quarterbacks.

The biggest story line coming out of Thursday night will be Patrick Mahomes’ knee. From the sounds of it as I write this, there isn’t a fracture to go along with the dislocated kneecap so that is not the worst news in the world if you depend on Mahomes in fantasy football.

I’ve started writing this at the end of the 3rd quarter. At this point the Broncos are lifeless and Flacco has been sacked 7 times. Nevermind, now it’s 8. Flacco is a corpse out there with zero mobility and the offensive line is not doing him any favors.

I saw this game going quite a bit differently. I thought that Denver had all of the momentum coming into this game off of two straight wins and KC with two straight losses. These teams were playing on 4 days rest and Denver’s roster was a lot healthier coming into the game. Kansas City can’t stop the run and coming into the game, they only had 11 sacks on the season. It turns out that this Denver offense is completely lethargic and unprepared.

Week 7 means allergy season for me. If I were speaking these words, I would have to take a deep breath in-between sentences. I’m so stuffed up, fall is really awful to me. Speaking of stuffed, what the hell was up with Derrick Henry last week? I was pretty high on Henry and he couldn’t find any room. It was the perfect matchup for him but Tennessee truly stinks.

“Wait, is this MB? Is he doing the waiver wire this week? This is stupid. I don’t like change.” I’m sorry! I had no choice. I’m filling in for Boof while he has family engagements this week. If there is one thing that we love more than giving you the best fantasy football advice, it is our families. Well, it depends on the day sometimes. Just kidding, maybe. Anyways, I’m not going to go into the gruesome detail that Boof goes into every week. He really does a great job. Hey man, I write 5 articles a week and do the editing for the site, give me a break. But, I will let you know who I am eyeing on the waiver wire this week. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Cleveland Browns are on a bye this week.

We’re getting to the part of the season where the teams that started hot make way for new teams to start to get hot. The Kansas City Chiefs looked unbeatable until they showed a chink in their armor in Detroit, and the Texans looked pretty pedestrian until recently. The Texans were a popular upset pick for Sunday, but it’s still surprising to see them come back from an early 14 point deficit when it looked like the Chiefs were going to roll right over them. 

The Vikings passing game has looked lethargic so far this season with a lot of the blame being placed on Kirk Cousins when really Kevin Stefanski and Mike Zimmer deserve a lot of the heat. Stefon Diggs, who is one of the most talented wide receivers in the league, was left for dead by this Vikings offense. Until Sunday when he went off for 3 touchdowns. Things in this league can shift at any time.
