I had to make a tough decision last weekend. Not like actual real-life tough, but fantasy football tough. As you may know, I was touting Odell Beckham Jr. throughout the preseason and recommending not trading him throughout the season. I know, my bad. Since I often draft who I recommend drafting I had to make the decision in two leagues whether or not I wanted to start him in the playoffs. I chose to bench Beckham for Robert Woods in one league and Zach Pascal in the other. And I won both playoff matchups by a combined 7 points. Choosing to bench Beckham even though he was playing against the Cincinnati was the difference between getting two teams to the semi-finals or being down two playoff teams. 

I’m not typing this to brag or talk about my fantasy teams because I know that nobody cares about fantasy teams that aren’t their own unless, of course, it is their job to. Just don’t be afraid to make the tough decisions for your lineup if it feels like it’s the right thing to do. Even if it means benching somebody that you drafted really early, like Odell Beckham Jr. or Le’Veon Bell. Let’s get to the rankings for week 15.

If you’re reading this, you made it! Or you just want to hate-view my rankings. Either way, I’m glad you’re here and welcome. My report card actually came out pretty good this year. I have one league left where four team make the playoffs, but other than that, I made the playoffs in all 6 of my other cash leagues and have two first round byes. The thing about the playoffs is all you have to do is make it to the show. Sure there could be matchups that are tougher than others but you almost have just as good of a chance as any team to get it done. So let’s do the best that we can and I am always here for your line up needs. Good luck everyone, and here are your rankings for week 14.

It’s Thanksgiving week which means that we are just one week away from the fantasy football playoffs. Guess what? Because I am so thankful for each and everyone one of you, I’m going to run an extra Thanksgiving edition fantasy football primer tomorrow morning. I’ll have a turkey on the smoker so I should have plenty of time to help you out with lineup questions before the Bears and Lions kick off.

Of course, if you’re one of those weirdos that’s going to swear off the internet and spend time with your family all day, I can answer your questions today, or you can just check out the rankings. I’m glad you clicked, it means you’re probably still right in the thick of it. Now let’s get to the rankings.

It’s the final countdown, boys and girls. We are now two weeks away from the fantasy football playoffs and this is the last week of byes. What a horrible bye week placement for key teams like the Chiefs, Chargers, Vikings, and Cardinals. But, we have to make due with the players that we have on our rosters and the waiver wire. Have no fear, you are in the hands of a top-50 ranker from week 11 so let’s see if we can get you to the winner’s circle.

This is it! It’s the final three week stretch of the fantasy football regular season. Each matchup is crucial for seeding or just flat out making the playoffs. That makes the rankings more important than ever. The rankers at Razzball are going to do the best that we can to get you where you need to go. Let’s get to it and I’ll see you in the comment section.

We have reached the double digit weeks time of the year. After 4 more regular season Sundays, we will be preparing our rosters for the playoff run. That is, unless, you managed to make the cutline in the RazzBowl. I think that it’s awesome to have a do or die team this early in the football season. It can’t hurt to start setting lineups in pressure situations. Oh, if you had forgotten and are a participant in this season’s RazzBowl, DO NOT FORGET TO SET YOUR LINEUP. The best ball portion of the contest is finished. Good luck to all of you that made it this far in our new annual contest. Go out there and make us proud! Here are my early week 10 fantasy football rankings…

I think that this Friday we will go over the mid-season awards instead of a Thursday Night Football Recap. Do we really need to recap a 30-3 49ers victory over Kingsbury’s Court? I’m going to create some fantasy football Razzballies! I already have a couple written on a napkin at work. Nevermind, I think I threw that napkin away after lunch. There will be fun to be had and fantasy football frauds to shake our fists at, this much I promise you. But for now, it’s time to do our regular Wednesday thing where I give you my rankings and then you ask me questions in the comment section. Let’s go!

What are you ranking? Everything! You get a ranking, you get a ranking, everybody gets a ranking! You’ll find my Standard, Half-PPR, and PPR rankings below.

What are my rankings bona fidas? Well, there’s finishing in the FantasyPros Top-10 Draft Accuracy (7th Place) in 2017, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy (23rd Place) in 2017, Top-5 Draft Accuracy (3rd place) in 2016, Top-10 Weekly Accuracy (10th Place) in 2016, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy in 2015 (21st Place) and on average we’ve finished in the Top-10 Draft Accuracy (9th Overall) and the Top-20 Weekly Accuracy (18th Overall) for the past four years and finished 30th overall for our Draft Rankings with a 32nd overall finish in Weekly just last season. And this is out of over 100+ industry sites and experts year-after-year. I’d like to think we’re pretty good at this stuff…

What does the word bona fidas mean? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, bo·na fi·des ˌbō-nə-ˈfī-ˌdēz , ÷ˈbō-nə-ˌfīdz means 1 : good faith : sincerity, 2 : the fact of being genuine —often plural in construction, 3 : evidence of one’s good faith or genuineness —often plural in construction, 4 : evidence of one’s qualifications or achievements —often plural in construction. On a separate note, I think it would make a great name for a cat.

What’s my ranking process? I’ve actually written about this in the past, and instead of working hard for new and enlightening content, I have chosen the more efficient (lazy, ahem) method and dropping in a link to that post here. Honestly, my process hasn’t changed much at all (the ole “don’t fix what ain’t broke” proverb comes to mind) and so my “A Day in the Life of a Fantasy Football Ranker” story still remains relevant to this day. (The TL;DR is: I’m lazy as fudge. Well, I mean the other “f” word, but I’m hungry.)

How should I use your rankings? The same way your mother does. Which actually makes no sense. (Unless your mother is in the running to always finish top-3 in your Fantasy Football league. And if that’s the case, say hello to her for me.)

Thank you all for the well wishes for my family yesterday. Even though we may never have a beer together, we work things out during the football season for your fantasy teams on a daily basis so we do share some sort of bond. Anyways, life is pretty much back to normal.

We had a lot of big performances last week and some of those I was higher than the consensus. D.J. Chark, Michael Gallup, Will Fuller were a few of those names that I was higher on. Unfortunately, there are always the misses. Austin Ekeler didn’t get in the endzone. I was too high of Jacoby Brissett, too low on Russell Wilson. And of course, I was too high on Baker Mayfield. Rudy and myself finished back to back at 87th and 88th last week. We must begin to look forward and grab a top 10 finish.

The rankings contest results are a little slow this week. The participants have been spoiled this season getting them on Tuesday mornings this season. So I have nothing to report on that front. I felt good about how my projections turned out last week. I didn’t have any huge misses that I’m kicking myself over. 

We’re always looking to bring different ways to bring you the best content that we can and I think that we came up with something that will be exciting as we kick off October. Our new writer Pat is a hard worker if you haven’t noticed from his weekly data reports. So I’m going to have him write up flex rankings for your consumption each week. This will be similar to what Donkey Teeth writes over on the baseball side. DT thought this format would translate well to football as well. A beautiful alley-oop by the non-human Razzballer. But for now, here are my rankings for week 5!
