It’s negative 19 degrees outside, your power has been out for three days and you’re wearing every piece of clothing you own while burning the last of your Hustler magazine collection in the middle of your living room floor for warmth. Thank goodness you have 8% battery left on your cell phone, just enough to pull up your fourteenth favorite fantasy football site and read about last year’s top 20 wide receivers. In this series I’m going over the top players at each position, listed in order of how many total fantasy points they actually scored this season in half PPR leagues. This is not a ranking for 2021 fantasy football. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A RANKING FOR 2021! I’ve already gone over the final 2020 fantasy football rankings for QBs and RBs, if your phone has enough battery left then give them a glance. Anyway, here’s the top 20 wide receivers for 2020 fantasy football and how they compared to where I originally ranked them:

A couple weeks back I gave you the recap of top 20 quarterbacks for 2020 fantasy football. Turns out, I was more than proficient at ranking QBs this year. At least I can tell my lady I was proficient at something in 2020. Alright, you got me, the lady’s actually Kerryon Johnson and I’ll have to communicate with him from at least 500 feet. After digging through the QBs I began to look at the year end running back rankings, comparing them to my preseason rankings. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t pretty. Of course, we all missed at the top with Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott. Even if I give myself a pass at the top end, it wasn’t good. I blame that whole pandemic thing. You may have deduced it from the title: in this series I’m going over the top players at each position, listed in order of how many fantasy points they actually scored this season. This is not a ranking for 2021 fantasy football. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A RANKING FOR 2021!

That’s a wrap folks! Another very normal, nothing out of the ordinary season of fantasy football in the books. I mean, other than that whole flesh eating virus and the record number of touchdowns scored. The virus doesn’t eat flesh. What are you an epidemiologist now, random italicized voice? Well there actually were a record number of touchdowns scored in 2020. Maybe it was because the lack of preseason put defenses at a severe disadvantage, maybe it was because no fans make it much easier for road teams to score, or maybe it was because of the Russians. Regardless, fantasy quarterbacks (and running backs and wide receivers) put up some ridiculous numbers this season. In this series I’ll be going over the top players at each position, listed in order of how many fantasy points they actually scored this season. This is not a ranking for 2021 fantasy football. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A RANKING FOR 2021! Anyway, here’s the top 20 quarterbacks for 2020 fantasy football and how they compared to where I originally ranked them:

Week 6 is here and there isn’t a lot of turn around. We already have football again on Thursday! What a game we had on Tuesday night! (I’m writing this before kick off). Did you see when Stefon Diggs made that huge 4th quarter catch? Wow, so great! How about when Derrick Henry scored his 5th touchdown? Anyways, I’m just hoping this game goes under on the total. That’s where my money is. 

So far, my rankings accuracy through four weeks went quite well. I don’t yet have the results for week 5. I’m still 15th overall in the FantasyPros accuracy contest. Prettay, Prettay, Prettay good. Donkey Teeth and Rudy Gamble had great week 4s and I hope we are able to keep our names on the top of the leaderboard often this year. When we make it big, we won’t leave the reader behind. We are a humble bunch here at Razzball. We’ll never go Pop, promise.

We made it three weeks without any Covid-19 trouble which is far longer than I previously expected. Three players and a couple of other staff members for the Tennessee Titans tested positive and it was reported on Tuesday. The Titans have closed their facilities until Saturday. At the time of writing this, there has not been any word of if the game will be rescheduled until later in the week, played on Sunday, or some bye weeks will be switched around weeks 6 and 7. For now, I will rank the players as if they are playing during the week 4 period. I have also ranked Julio Jones and Davante Adams like they are playing for now. They were both at least close to playing last week so one has to think that there is a good chance that they give it a go this week. I have no idea what to do with Chris Godwin so I left him in the 30’s. Ahh, the difficulty of putting out rankings before the practice week starts. 

As you may know, my rankings are live up until kick off on Sunday morning, so be sure to check back all week and then click the primer post on Sunday morning where I answer all of your questions that you might have. I have had good fortune in the accuracy department through the first 3 weeks and I’m going to try and keep the train rolling as we near the quarter mark of the fantasy season. Here are the early rankings for week 4!

You ever watch that move Napoleon Dynamite? Come on, you’re looking at advanced statistics for your imaginary football team — I KNOW you’ve got that movie on DVD and a “Vote for Pedro” shirt sitting non-ironically in your closet. ENYWHEY, there’s the character of Uncle Rico, who kept taking film of himself throwing a football in an effort to chuck it over a local mountain or grain field or really, just about any object that could be placed in front of him. Now, after the complete decimation that your fantasy football team received in week 2, are you thinking, nay, hoping that some team will sign Uncle Rico so he can bring his swagger and dynamite — see what I did there? — arm to your favorite team? Well, worry not! Blake Bortles has come back! Undrafted free agent Nick Mullens is taking the field! Taysom Hill is making $8 million to be the third best quarterback on the Saints and he’s completed 6 passes in his NFL career. And Kaep is still on the outside. At this point, let’s give Uncle Rico a shot. Heck, Gardner Minshew is 90% Uncle Rico DNA. Fingers crossed no more QBs get hurt in Week 3, otherwise you should be gearing up to start Dwayne Haskins in your next DFS hot taek.

I learned something in our fantasy football group chat this morning. It was a conversation between THE BOOF, DonkeyTeeth and B-Don (they didn’t know I was watching tehehe). If you think about it, it’s kind of obvious, but I’ll bet you two packs of smokes, a bottle of toilet wine, and 3 packs of ramen that you didn’t know that Jonnu Smith is the 0.5 PPR TE1 through two weeks this year! Crap, I keep forgetting that my time has been served for crimes I ALLEGEDLY committed and I don’t have to bet prison items anymore. Which is unfortunate because I really miss that sweet, sweet toilet wine. Another fun fact, getting last place in a prison fantasy league has a little bit harsher of a punishment.. But I digress back to Jonnu. If you followed my rankings in week two, you would have started him in any format! You also might have started Emmanuel Sanders, but it’s not my fault he sucks. I’m just the ranker, sheesh.

As the final night of Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season winds to a close, I find myself updating Razzball’s top 60 running back rankings with some unusual sights dancing in front of my eyes. Stephen Gostkowski has missed three kicks and a field goal, Noah Fant looked like the best player on the field in the first half, Corey Davis is shredding the Broncos defense and my dog is licking his butt in the corner of the room as I scream about all of these things. Also on Monday were some unusual running back performances, highlighted by Saquon Barkley’s six-yard game on the ground and a breakout day for Benny Snell of Pittsburgh. Oddly enough, it looked for a little while like we really might see a 50-50 workload split in Denver before Melvin Gordon took over in the fourth quarter. If you’re already losing your mind over realities such as these, it might be a long 16 weeks to follow for you. On the plus side, we’re here to help you navigate the rest of the way with your running backs, as the weekly top 60 picks back up today with some drastic changes including some movement inside the top 10. First, let’s take a quick trip around the league.
