We are one day away from draft night and I cannot wait. Who do you have your team taking with their first pick? If you are like me, you are consuming all of the NFL content to keep you satisfied until the regular season kickoff. Your teams have reported for offseason activities, the 2019 regular […]

In my regular Monday post, I paid extra attention to some wide receiver adds that will be beneficial for weeks 14-16. There are a few out there, but for the most part, the ‘start your studs’ theory is the way that I like to go about things. Quarterback is an entirely different beast. I’ve written in the past about quarterback scoring being very bunched up near the middle of the position. So it a good idea to discover weekly outliers in the most important three weeks of the fantasy football season. 

The benefit in preparing for the playoffs around Thanksgiving is that these players that you are stashing likely wouldn’t be available in weeks 13 or 14. Staying ahead of your league-mates is half of the battle. People say fantasy football is luck driven and they are wrong for the most part. Luck has nothing to do with positioning yourself for success through studying probabilities. Believe it or not, there are some quarterbacks that still have low ownership that have very easy playoff schedules and you should adding them this week.

The 6 point passing TD super-being (with bonus triangle).

The 6 point passing touchdown super-being (with bonus triangle).

I’ve played in 6-point passing TD leagues since I started playing fantasy football in 2002.  Does it change how you should value QBs?  Of course! (Well, a little.  It’s not a massive change.)  I think the main thing to keep in mind is finding a difference maker at QB helps your team just a little bit more than it would have if you found the same difference maker in standard scoring.  For instance Andrew Luck had a great year last year, one that surpassed most preseason expectations.  As much as he helped teams by being a good value in standard scoring, he was that much better in 6 point passing TD leagues.  The stakes are higher for identifying this year’s Andrew Luck if you play in that type of league.

With our fake football season winding down you are either in the playoffs, positioning yourself for the sprint to the Shiva or crying Knowshon Moreno tears because you drafted Aaron Rodgers and Arian Foster. Need a hug? If you are in, congratulations. All those hours spent researching, analyzing stats and ignoring the family paid off. Cheers, I raise my whiskey glass to you. If you are out, all those hours spent researching, analyzing stats and ignoring the family were for naught. And your wife just served the divorce papers. There’s nothing like spending Christmas with your best friend Johnny Walker at the Motel 6. For those playoff bound, it is no time to quit it with the chronic rosterbating. Don’t worry you won’t go blind, but you may need glasses. It is however, time to stop taking chances on the “upside” guys. But Guru, doesn’t Ace Anders have a lot of potential. Yeah, I know disembodied voice of Razzball Nation, but potential is one thing in Week 3, it is quite another as we head into the playoffs. Stick with your consistent ballers, that’s who got you here. I only need one defense, right Mr. Turban? Well, my fellow Razzballer, if you are one of those that doesn’t own the Seattle or Carolina defense, don’t stop streaming the D now. Find the best matchup for the week and look ahead to the next few weeks. If you have roster room, pick up the defenses that have the best matchups going forward, i.e., any team facing the Jags or the Jets. If you don’t have room for three defenses, drop the dead weight off your roster. Trent Richardson isn’t going to turn into AP anytime soon. Whattabout kicker’s? Grab three of those, too? Don’t get all crazy now, Taco. One kicker will do, just make sure he’s on a high scoring team, plays in dome or has a good weather matchup. But, o wise guru, there’s nothing good on the waiver wire. Not true, my playoff bound friend. Just choose wisely. That’s why I’m here. The fake footballin’ championship is within your grasp and all the glory, bragging rights, cash and prizes are there for the taking. It’s time to jam it or cram it.

So at first I thought I could fill up an entire post on just one strategy for wide receivers. Then I thought to myself ‘really, how much can you say about just one approach about wide receivers? You’re no Charles Dickens, broseph’. I have these casual chats with myself sometimes. It eases the pain of feeling forever alone…but nonetheless, there’s more then one way to approach those 3 wideouts in your draft. Most times, just like anything, it will depend who’s available to you and when. If I have Calvin Johnson as my WR1, that’s going to make me reconsider who my WR2 should/could be vs if it’s, say, Randall Cobb. Different strokes for different folks there, Willis, and we’re gonna try to account for them all as best we can. So without further fluff, let’s take a look at draft strategy for wide receivers for the 2013 Fantasy Football season…oops, looks like I forgot something…what was it? Oh yeah, if you’re not signed up or commishing a Razzball Commenter League by now, you’re dead to me son! So go find out how to get involved and maybe along the way you win the grand prize. What prize is that, you ask? Well ya gotta go click the link to find out, brochacho! And now I’m done pandering/threatening so let’s get back on course…

The five day wait between weeks 1 and 2 can be a lonely time. After months of fantasy anticipation, countless hours of research and time spent crafting your league trophy acceptance speech, 0-1 can feel a lot like 0-4. However, this is NOT the time to panic.  That’s what the dummies in your league are […]
