Week two of Days of Antonio Brown’s Life is in the books and what a crazy week it was! I loved the scene where Antonio farted in his doctor’s face and then looked over at the camera with a sh*t eating grin [see below]. Flatulence is so disgusting. And hilarious!Please, blog, may I have some more?

If you’ve been living under Antonio Brown’s helmet for the last two months and are just hearing about the RazzBowl for the first time, welcome to the party! 39 fans are competing against 141 of the top fantasy football industry analysts in Razzball’s unique take on The NFFC’s Cutline Championship format: The RazzBowl (apply for RazzBowl 2020 here). It’s the biggest thing to happen to the fantasy football world since the invention of Rudy Gamble’s mind-blowing subscription tools, which can be tested out on a free one week trial right now!Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m sure you’ve been wondering, “Why did Donkey Teeth retreat into solitude after executing such a flawless RazzBowl draft?” The truth is, when you draft the most dominant RazzBowl team in the history of RazzBowl teams drafted by a Donkey hopped up on green juices and hallucinogens, withdrawal is unavoidable.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We want to thank everyone for their participation in the RCL leagues to this point. We hope everyone is having fun with their drafts with their favorite writers. Great news! We have four leagues that need filled and we need your help! You can play against me, Son, Kerry, or our new writer, Nic. The drafts start on Sunday and go through Wednesday. That’s Sunday until the season starts! The rest of this is copied and pasted. You all know that I’m not very wordy.
Do you want to play in more than one league? Go right ahead! You can play against all of the Razzball writers that you want until their leagues are full. You can start your own league and invite all of your buddies. RCLs went through some big changes last season by switching to IDP and the Fantrax platform. In the respect of full transparency, it could have went a lot smoother. I honestly feel like we have made a lot of improvements by switching to PPR and returning to standard rosters.
Fantrax as a platform has definitely made improvements as well. I think they are getting better and better every season. Last year was a struggle for me on Fantrax. I was having trouble figuring out the regular functions that I was used to with the other big sites that I play on. To be honest, I wasn’t a fan of the interface either. This baseball season, I had to give Fantrax another shot to play in a couple of industry leagues. I was very impressed with the new and improved interface for baseball and it didn’t take me that long to get used to it this time around. Early on in this fantasy football draft season, I’m enjoying the Fantrax slow draft that I am in. If the switch from Yahoo to Fantrax, kept you away last season, give it a shot this year. If you didn’t enjoy our format last year, maybe you’ll like that we are going back to regular rosters. As always, we’ve got prizes!Please, blog, may I have some more?
All of our leagues are set up, organized, and updated. All that they are missing is you! Today is the perfect day to sign up to play against your favorite Razzball writer. So far, Stan Son and Rotowan have filled up their leagues but some Razzball favorites still remain. Jay just opened up a league late last week and he has spots available. Have you checked out the boys from the Ditka Sausage podcast? B-Don and Donkey Teeth have plenty of spots if you are looking to play with them. Staff writers Reid and Zach both have plenty of spots available. Last and…. yeah probably least compared to these guys, I still have 6 spots left in my RCL.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re going to be hosting a special presentation tonight (and I’m not just talking about Tehol), as the 2017 RCL Writers League Draft will be shown live here on the site at 9:00 PM EDT via Twitch! There will be plenty of ways to interact with us, through the chat and here in the comment section. We’ll answer your questions, unless it’s about Zach drafting Tom Brady first overall. We just have no idea why. So feel free to post your smack talk, critiques and your questions wherever you want (just the way your mother likes it) when the draft goes live!
STREAM UPDATE: DRAFT LIVE SHOW HAS ENDED!

As the title states, we crowdsourcing. Since you know how much I love my corporate zeitgeist jargon… let’s source the crowd people! So, there are probably a few questions I want to ask, but the main one that branches out into the others (tree metaphors, woooooo) is basically this: What changes would you like to see next year to the RCLs?
We obviously have gone by a half-PPR format ever since I arrived, but everything else was pretty vanilla when it came right down to it… until this year when we rid ourselves of Kickers and DSTs and added three IDP slots. And it’s exciting because we’d never done anything exotic like this in the past, just a normal flex, 12-teams, preset scoring in most cases, etc., but I think you could have called half-PPR “exotic” several years ago, and now “standard” scoring seems to be a thing of the past. Times are a changin’, as the song says, and I have the feeling that what we know as a “standard league” today is not necessarily what the industry will cater to moving forward. And as a site that not only provides the best supply of puns and “yo momma” jokes, but also tries to pioneer itself whenever possible (mostly with puns and “yo momma” jokes), I am always very open into looking at new ideas and suggestions from the Razzball community and what you’d like to play and compete with. Even if that means you hate the idea of IDPs or still want to draft Kickers and DSTs (why you would ever, I just don’t know!)
I’d love to be progressive (or regressive if the masses speak!) with the RCLs, but I could use a little help. What changes would you like to see? What formats and scoring do you want to play? Let me know in the comment section below!
In the meantime, the season draws near and we still have some leagues open and drafts still going. Why not join a league for a chance at some great prizes? Here’s how…Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Draft podcast that was recorded live during our draft can be listened to after the jump, which was again hosted by former ESPN Producer PodVader. Come to think of it, he not only hosts this league year-after-year, but he also special hosts for the actual podcast! Two birds! One stone! You know how the saying goes… (Hint: if you’re a bird, you’re f*cked.) And with this expert draft in the books a season after I took the championship (blind squirrel, nuts, I like your nuts joke, etc.), it’s time to write about said draft in a self-deprecating manner that will captivate all of my first dates (and not so coincidentally, my last dates) to no end. So first, let’s introduce the players… (and if you’d like to check out the team that pulled it off in 2016, you can grab your context here. But grab lightly! Think juggling with jazz hands…)
ESPN’s former Producer PodVader, (Jay Soderberg) from Next Fan Up and BlogTalkRadio, DFSR‘s Doug Norrie, Mat Harrison from LeagueSafe (use promo code: RAZZBALL for $10.00 League credit!), “d-Rx®” (yes, that’s his name, no, he’s not a T-Rex with a silent ‘T’, unfortunately) from Pyromaniac, Matt Freedman from FantasyLabs and RotoViz Radio, Pro Football Weekly‘s Kyle Nabors, Joel Henard from Fantasy Insiders, Chris Schubert from FanRag Sports, Brandon Marianne Lee from Her Fantasy Football, Dale from Eat-Sleep-Fantasy, Matt Chatham from Football by Football, Kevin from The Fantasy Football Guys, Todd from The Fantasy Sharks, and Jay from Razzball (hey, that’s me!) And now? The recap!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Like the title spoiled, the table is set, the forks and spoons are in their right place, and hopefully there’s food ready and on the way. In terms of the RCL universe (since I’m hungry and if there are any more food metaphors, I’ll eventually end up eating my keyboard), the “league” has taken shape and drafts are soon to begin over the next several weeks. (But that doesn’t mean you still can’t create and join your choice of RCLs after the jump!) And, I want to touch on what I just stated above: when I say “league”, I mean league, not leagues. Because ef pluralization… I mean, what has it ever done for me? Regardless, you have to remember, this is one complete universal league. The Milky Way of Fantasy Football if you will, including Antonio Brown, Saturn, and of course, Uranus. Don’t roll your eyes, you knew it was coming. (Just like your mother.) What I’m trying to say is, join any league you like, create as many as you want, and be part… of the universe. Mutha. Effing. DEEP.Please, blog, may I have some more?
