Defensive backs are like the kickers of IDP leagues. There really aren’t too many players that need to be picked early in your drafts. They are also like tight ends after the first 5 or so where streaming on a week to week basis can be the way to go based on the weekly matchup. Outside of some top end safeties who rack up tackles, guessing who will finish near the top of DB scoring is a crap shoot. In tackle heavy scoring systems it’s a little easier to go after safeties, but in big play leagues, trying to predict who will garner interceptions, passes defensed, and sacks from this position is tough. A typical drafting strategy for DBs in IDP leagues is to wait and here’s why.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Drafting will come to a close by the time Thursday rolls around and then the real fun begins! The draft is only half of the battle of winning a fantasy football championship. Maybe even less. We’ll call it like 34.956% of winning a championship or something like that. By the time you look at your roster in week 13 before the fantasy playoffs, it’s going to look a lot different.
Your goal coming into the season should be to make the fantasy playoffs. Why not a championship? Because there are a lot of variables in fantasy football and if you make the playoffs with a strong roster, then you can start worrying about the title. In the playoffs, you are hoping that the dominoes fall in your favor. Time and time again I’ve seen some legendary rosters that grab the number one seed go down in the semi-finals over some stuff that was out of their control. So it’s all about putting yourself in position to get there by intelligently managing your roster in season along with hitting some value in the draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey there Razzballers, Reid here writing a quick little piece for those in keeper leagues and trying to make decisions for who you plan on using a keeper status on in some of your leagues. While there are an infinite number of hypothetical situations, I will provide one that I believe best illustrates the thought […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It was so close. Literally, wide open in the end zone with no defender within 10 yards of him. Slightly overthrown, but it’s a catch any pass-catcher in the league should make 100/100 times. But not Kyle Rudolph. No, not him.
When watching the game live and seeing the play develop, I got a smile on my face because the sure-to-be Rudolph touchdown would mean it was a good call for him as a streamer. Instead, he dropped it, and instead of scoring 8 fantasy points, he scored 1.20. That’s what happens with fantasy. We only have so much control of what happens. Rudolph let everyone down that was streaming him against the lowly Raiders defense.
Let’s get to the Week 11 streamers, shall we?Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s up Razzicans! If you are still here, you are either still playing or just can’t let us go. If it’s the latter, then all I can say is watch this and don’t take it personal. I’m kidding, glad to have you. We’re doing something a little different this week to close out the 2014 fantasy season. I’m also writing this post with my pants on for once. (It’s about as awkward as that one time I wore boxers to gym class during wrestling week.) Here is the breakdown, I’m covering the NFC games and my boy Ralph is covering the AFC later today. I’m gonna gloss over the players that should be usable and play the whole game or at least have some level of relevance.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This post is short and to the point. Who’s playing, who’s sitting, and who’s status do you need to monitor leading up to game time for this weekend’s match ups. Week 17 is bear and it’s always a crapshoot trying to plan for championships won in this week. I got the AFC and my brother in Razz, the Hateful One, has the NFC. We’ll give you what we got and try to help you navigate through the madness. Just so we’re clear your Commissioner is an A-Hole. Really Week 17? I remember my first Fantasy League too!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jay’s updated his Week 16 Rankings for tonight’s games: the Eagles vs. Washington, and Chargers vs. 49ers. Check them out here!
It’s fantasy championship week. I hope that you have made it to your respective fantasy finals, and that you’re in line to win major candy bars with a victory this weekend. With the holidays next week, there won’t be a start and sit article for Week 17. However, as the offseason approaches, there will still be plenty to read on the site, and within the coming weeks, I’ll have a way-too-early top 100 for 2015 posted on the site and numerous other strategy, draft and other articles to hold you over.
Let’s get to it, shall we?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let me begin by thanking all of you for reading this drivel I produce on a weekly basis. Hopefully you’ve found it helpful, informative, and most of all, put my suggestions here to good use. Throughout the season so many handcuffs have found their way into starting roles and excelled. Some on a one week fill in, but others took the job and ran with it. We salute you graduated handcuffs. Thanks for making the draft meaningless. Just kidding, but seriously who would you rather have right now, Jimmy Graham or Justin Forsett? LeSean McCoy or Jeremy Hill? You don’t need to answer, the right choice is obvious. It just goes to show how increasingly viable the handcuff stash option is. The beginning of next year pundits, peers, and perts will be lined up by the dozen to tell you handcuffs are a waste of roster spot. To them I say this: if you make a costly investment in a running back, does it really hurt to buy an insurance policy? You would on a car, house, or collection of Star Wars commemorative plates. Right? What you don’t own any Star Wars commemorative plates? More of a Star Trek guy eh? What? You don’t own any commemorative plates! What do you eat your hot pockets on?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Good afternoon to my very few dedicated followers. I regret to inform you that this will be my last streamer post of the year… I hope that I have steered you in the right direction, more often than not, during the course of the season. This is not a time for sadness, but a time for rejoicing. For the closing of the fantasy football season summons the beginning of the fantasy baseball season, in which Grey will entertain us with his daily quips. It’s just around the corner, folks, and many sleepers have already been posted, so get yourself over to the baseball page immediately! Also, thanks to all the commenters for your input this season. It’s been fun. Don’t hesitate to connect with me on Twitter either. Anywho, we’re here for football, so luckily, that’s what I’m going to give you.

After a disaster of a suggestion last week in Marion Grice, I’m looking to a couple of familiar names and faces this week. Both Andre Williams and Latavius Murray have been featured here before and will be again today. When it comes to handcuffs you sort of hit a point where there are only so many usable options left. Though I suppose Kerwynn Williams’ breakout does fly in the face of that previous statement. The point is we know the players now, and if you’re digging through handcuffs it’s because you need to use them for playoff match ups. So good luck with that! To wrap this up it’s been a great year, and the constant game of musical chairs amongst the starters at the running back position have kept me mighty busy. Hopefully my advice led you to a few victories this season, good luck in the playoffs!

Happy Thursday everyone! Don’t you worry your little hearts, your highly anticipated streamer article is here. Since the Streamer Department is newer staple here at Razzball, I want to try something a little different this week. 90% of the players I write about on here I’ve written about before. You can check those stats! In order to stop boring you or going too in-depth with the obvious about how great a player’s matchup is, I want to keep my player descriptions short. I also understand that all of these players are not available in every league, so I want to encourage you readers to ask more personally tailored questions in the comment section. Josh McCown isn’t available in your league, but Teddy Bridgewater and Geno Smith are? Gross! But you’re probably playing Bridgewater and saying your prayers. You don’t know what color to paint your living room? Seafoam green! This is why I’m here, and this is when your roster decisions matter most. So ask me, ask Jay, ask Smokey or ask your Grandma! The more input, the better chance we have of helping you win!Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s Week 14, which means in the majority of non-MFL leagues, it’s playoff time. For some, it’s been a must-win week for awhile now, but now, everyone can relate. With no hesitation, let’s get to this week’s starts and sits.Please, blog, may I have some more?
