Enough, already! Can we PLEASE stop trying to make Justin Fields a thing in fantasy football? What are we doing!? I’m done with the cutesy little introductions and self-deprecating jokes. It’s time to take a stand. I don’t care if he runs, throws, flies, digs underground and shoots lasers out of his eyes! The Chicago Bears offense isn’t worth it. Fantasy football playoffs are here, for Booger McFarland’s sake! Some of us need to get our heads out of our buttcracks, unless you’re still trying to figure out the best place for that last place finisher tattoo you’re about to be forced into getting.
So, let’s get to it and fire up those decisions. This week, we’ll touch on Geno Smith, Austin Ekeler, Gus Edwards, Garrett Wilson and more. But if you don’t see your player of interest, hit me up in the comments. Week 16 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s fantasy POSTSEASON, y’all! Here’s to ensuring your playoff run continues into next week and the week thereafter and beyond, until you’re a 2023 fantasy football champion. Either that, or you’re competing to avoid the toilet bowel, last place and effectively being forced into having the league winner’s grandmother’s likeness tattooed onto your right buttcheek. Or your left. Or both. Or maybe you have to play frogger in four-lane traffic for an hour. I have no way of knowing how sick in the head your leaguemates are. All I can do is help you from becoming Main Street roadkill or having Grandma Elsa’s face stenciled onto your backside.
So let’s get to it and fire up those decisions. This week, we’ll touch on Justin Fields, D’Andre Swift, James Cook, Calvin Ridley and more. But if you don’t see your player of interest, hit me up in the comments. Week 15 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s all coming down to the wire, so don’t look down now! As we enter Week 14, you’re either sitting comfortably with a playoff spot in hand, battling tooth and nail to get in, enjoying the luxury of a bye, hyped for playoff fantasy football, or eliminated with no hopes of emerging from the grave. That’s a lot of potential options. Even more than I thought when I started typing. Hopefully, you’re not in situation No. 5, or else reading these very words is likely a complete waste of your time and you need to get back to fulfilling that TPS Report your boss asked about on Monday. Or possibly, you just love fantasy football so much you couldn’t possibly flick off the switch, no matter the circumstances. But regardless if you’re weathering the storm or your entire livelihood is on the line, we’ve got your start vs. sit advice right here. And if you don’t see the player you’re looking for, hit up the comments section, and let’s chat. Week 14 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
There isn’t much I have to say about last week’s slate of football games. I drank a lot of beer, ate a surplus of food, repeatedly swung a hammer at a stump, and dozed frequently enough for the entire experience to be a blur. Monday morning of this week was what I imagine seeing the light for the first time to be like. But as the week has gone on, the Thanksgiving hangover has worn off and now the month of December is officially upon us.
Six weeks of regular-season football remain. Unfortunately for my dear friend, New Jersey Nicholas, life as a Buffalo Bills fan has only worsened since the time of my last post. Now, we enter into a pivotal period for Nicholas and Bills mafia, as well as for all fantasy owners far and wide. It’s nearly playoff season. Things are heating up. Is this the time to make a gutsy call, or play it safe Week 13 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Come here, come all. I have a tale I would like to share with you. I have a dear, dear friend named Nicholas who is a Buffalo Bills fan, and currently lives in a furious state of ceaseless agony. Not because he’s from New Jersey, no. But because he now watches all Bills games alone at home, in the dark, covered in a thick, wool blanket while clutching a sofa cushion desperately across his breast. “I’m in a bad place right now,” he says to me more than on occasion. And unfortunately, matters have only worsened since we last encountered, dear Razzballers. Alas, my dear friend finds himself in the midst of a full-on frenzy, which has only clouded his ability to adequately manage his fantasy roster. In Week 10, he inadvertently left Tee Higgins at Flex in the heat of a ruthless playoff race. It’s mid-November. We’ve reached that point where frustrations, or even concentrations, may be coming to a boiling point, either in regard to your NFL team or your fantasy roster. If you’re 2-8, chances are your playoff hopes are over. But please, please, do not be a New Jersey Nicholas. Do not allow your desperation as a fan to impact your attention-to-detail as an owner. And with a little bit of extra analysis from this week’s column, you could be sitting purdy (which I reccomend in the column) on Sunday. Week 11 start vs. sit begins right now.

An aerospace engineer in Minneapolis, a fallen franchise signal-caller in Phoenix, and a young acronym finding stride in Seattle find themselves in the spotlight of our start vs. sit column this week. Luckily for the former, he has a sturdy career to fall back on if things go south in the cold tundra of America. The same can’t be said for me. If this gig doesn’t work out, my only fallback is an open invitation extending back to 1996 to join the Chuck-E-Cheese band. And let me tell you, if you haven’t seen Five Nights at Freddy’s yet, the prospects of that endeavor are not enticing to me. But what about our beloved aerospace engineer and his friends? We’ll take a look at the fates of Joshua Dobbs, Kyler Murray, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba, as well as some unique calls at tight end. Week 10 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Our trek through November football begins with the arrival of Week 9. Join me, dear Razzballers, on the lovely Mayflower as we voyage across the ocean in search of greener pastures and kinder kings. Perhaps if your season hasn’t gone as planned, you instead find yourself sailing behind us in the Nina, Pinta, or Santa Maria as you chase your fellow league-mates for playoff spots. And if the season has truly been a disaster, you may have already died of scurvy, pneumonia, or tuberculosis before we left the port. Indeed, the campaign’s midpoint is looming, and the decisions that lie ahead could be the ones that make or break your pursuit of a championship. This week, we’ll touch on 10 players in particular including bold opinions on Derek Carr, Emari Demercado, and DK Metcalf. Week 9 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Come here, Georgie! That should be you, doing your best Pennywise impression to lure George Pickens onto your roster and into your lineups as we Trick-or-Treat our way into Halloweekend and Week 8 of the NFL fantasy football season. You can watch as Georgie trudges down the flooded street to your sewage drain in his drenched Steelers raincoat. One piece of advice: if you want Georgie to perform this week, don’t bite off either of his arms before hauling him into your fantasy lair. Now that he’s in your grasp, we already know Pickens is on the plus-end of start vs. sit this week – but what about Dak Prescott, Joe Burrow, Chuba Hubbard, Calvin Ridley, Dalton Kincaid and more? Week 8 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m back, Razzball Nation! I need to begin by thoroughly apologizing for my absence last week. As I was making my way to the computer to submit last week’s start vs. sit, I tripped on an empty can of Chef Boyardee lying on the floor and went sprawling across the room, inadvertently ripping the PC power cord out of the wall and straining my left glute. Life happens, and while I won’t make excuses, we need to get back to business pronto. If your roster looks like many of mine or resembles anything close to that of my pasta-can-littered floor, your fantasy team has finally hit the WTF (Where’s The Franzia?) stage of the season. Anthony Richardson is out for the year. Justin Jefferson is stuck on your IR. You lost J.K. Dobbins right out of the gate. And now, Joe Burrow is on bye and Calvin Ridley got you 1.5 points last night. BAD! But! But! Do not fret! There’s still a full slate of Sunday games to get right and it all begins with making the right calls before kickoff. Week 7 Start vs. Sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 5: the National Football League embarks on the month of October. Spooky Szn. May your fantasy football matchup be filled with ghosts of Aaron Rodgers’ past and freshly carved Jack-Buck-o-Lanterns. This week, we’ll be diving into some particularly scary decisions, such as whether to throw Jonathan Taylor immediately into your lineup and whether or not you should wear fishnets as part of your Halloween costume this year. We’ll also run through crucial decisions regarding Jahmyr Gibbs and Romeo Doubs: are they starts or sits this week? Is it finally time to believe in Darren Waller? I’m no warlock or witch, but all the analysis and insight you need can be found in the words to follow. Week 5 Start vs. Sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
In Week 3, I finally put a W on the board in my highest-stakes league and now appear primed to return to .500 following a strong showing on Thursday Night Football against a low-life opponent. Have no fear, 1-2 is a perfectly fine place to be unless you’re playing Skip-Bo against your four-year-old niece. In sports, especially fantasy, there is an unavoidable degree of variability and uncertainty that can make life maddening. However, if we commit to the process the same way Deion Sanders does to his hair follicle treatment, failure is not an option. The season is long. Continue to make the right decisions based on facts and the wins will come. This week, that might mean making a difficult call on Trevor Lawrence as your QB1 or starting Alvin Kamara in his first game back. Should you dare put Quentin Johnston in your lineup in his increased role? WHat about DeVon Achane? We’ll get to all of that and more in the Week 4 start vr. sit, which begins right now.

Week 3. Two down, 16 to go. With multiple games now in the books, we can finally begin dissecting trends as they emerge across the league. For starters, one trend that I’ve noticed is more and more male youths wearing tiny shorts to show off their thigh muscles. Another is the rapid rise of the streaming of Suits on Netflix. What does this have to do with fantasy football? Well, every NFL player has large thigh muscles and regularly wears a suit (probably). But not all players with large thigh muscles who wear suits are created equally. Some are better at football than others, and some are better equipped to help your Week 3 fantasy lineup, such as Russell Wilson and Gabe Davis. Who else? I’ll break that down and more in this week’s start vs. sit. Please, blog, may I have some more?
