Ah yes, so we meet again… wait, did we actually formally meet? I mean, technically we’re meeting again, we’ve done this before… but did we really meet? Of course I’m an existential crisis waiting to happen, but that’s only because clinical depression requires so much work. I mean, I’d rather jog than emo, ya know? But back to where we started, this is your (and “our” I suppose) official 2016 Razzball picks. Or selections. Or whatever nomenclature you prefer. I guess whatever it takes for me not to force you to read word “nomenclature” over and over again. We do this because, frankly, we just can’t write about everyone and everything that we love or hate. I mean, we’re talking about 1,696 players here. And so this is the quick and easy “viewer-friendly” version that allows you to quickly see our likes/dislikes/predictions for all of you to promptly point and giggle at…

Note: Everyone chose their picks blind, meaning they didn’t see anyone else’s choices, and possibly used a blindfold. Also, the choices were locked on 9/4/2016.

Most Valuable Fantasy Player (MVP)

This is where things get sticky. (That’s what she said.) Technically, this could be the best player overall… but the key word here is value. You know this because I underlined it. While the vanilla pick of  Antonio Brown could still technically be the most valuable pitcher at the end of the year, there’s still enough room in the definition to allow the possibility that JaMarcus Russell will come out of retirement (or from whatever all-you-can-eat restaurant of choice is), throw 30 touchdowns and over 3,000 yards. Seeing as his ownership rate historically always stood in the nothing-to-negative digits and still would upon his triumphant return, and someone like Brown is gone by the second overall pick in any normal draft, a performance like that would be the most valuable in the history of mankind. And probably destroy the universe as we know it.

Break Out Player of The Year (Sleeper)

You might think we’re describing someone who breaks through walls and then falls asleep really fast. Which seems weird. So I wouldn’t really put it past us… To limit the confusion, I’d better point out that these are our potential break out candidates that you should be grabbing long and grabbing hard.

Most Overrated Player of The Year (Bust)

These are the guys being held on a pedestals, who will, in return for all your worship and sacrifice, ruin everything thing you hold dear. See: 2014, Ball, Montee. Or 2015, Lacy, Eddie. Take heed Razzballers, avoid these guys at all costs.

I Think I Love You, So What Am I So Afraid Of? (Infatuation)

Yep, we all have one. Find out which player your Razzball writer has an undying love for, despite any rational reason or purpose.

Come Back Player of the Year (Come Back)

Again, pretty easy to figure out what this one means. Unless you’re Tiki Barber. BUUUUURN.

Rookie of the Year (RoY)

Sorta self-explanitory, but with the added notion that value plays a part here. It’s easy to pick Ezekiel Elliot, but you’re drafting him pretty high regardless. What happens if Dak Prescott goes HAM? YOU STAY AWAY JAMARCUS, THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT MEANS. I’m just saying, there are Rookie of the Year’s, and then there are Rookie of the Year’s that help win you a championship by simply being awesome AND cheap. (Did I already use a “yo momma” joke? Doesn’t matter. Insert one here.)

    Hey guys i had my draft last night. I printed your rankings before i went so i could use them. I ended up drafting Dion Lewis pretty high only to find out after that he is out for at least 6 weeks? Why do you guys still have him ranked so high? Really screwed me. Is he worth holding on to or should i drop him? Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Vinny: Hey Vinny, not sure what to tell you, Dion Lewis has been ranked quite low on my rankings since his injury… I’d hold for now, but be ready to drop him once waiver hits unless you see an obvious upgrade.

    • ThE sHiT says:
      (link)

      @Vinny: did you draft Forsett and Romo too? Gotta pay attention to the news man…

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @ThE sHiT: To be fair, Garret hasn’t ruled out Romo for Week 1 (hmmmmmmm) and Forsett was just resigned, so maybe it’s better if we ignore the news. I think I might be the better for it!

        • William Hung says:

          @Jay: I saw that you said you updated the rankings, so I wanted to confirm this is what you were referring to:

          http://football.razzball.com/2016-rankings-top-200-half-ppr

          I wanted to use the latest and greatest for my Yahoo! Predraft rankings – but I def disagree with DGB at 112 since he has no defined role yet on the Eagles.

            • William Hung says:
              (link)

              @Jay: Thanks Jay – a couple of questions regarding .5 PPR:

              1. You are a lot higher on Torrey Smith than a lot of sites – which means I can target him instead of Aiken as my last WR in my draft – what do you forecast for him this season?

              2. Another player you are a lot higher on is Theo Riddick, who I may target as my last RB of my draft – above both Derrick Henry and LeGarrette Blount? What made you rank him so high?

              • Jay

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @William Hung: I like him because there’s literally no one else in Frisco. Yeah, I really like him as a poor man’s Reggie Bush almost.

                • mike says:
                  (link)

                  @Jay: owning a poor mans reggie bush is like owning a poor mans justin forsette. Theres no rostering someone lile like in any league anywere. Remember I said a poor mans forsett. Niether are playing so a poor mams version of them wouldnt be playing. Let alone have any value. That being said blount is the better value for the first half a season. Reddick is a rb3 in a 16 team league. Not worthy of a flex play in 16 teams. Even 18 yeams he isnt a flex. @Jay:

                    (link)

                    @mike: I think Riddick has some value in PPR formats, only because he is about the only pass-catching option there. In RCLs, which are 12-team formats, he’s owned in abundance.

        • ThE sHiT says:
          (link)

          @Jay: i know, i know, just jabbing at the guy. I cant fathom Romo playing any time soon, who would risk something like that? Let Dak play and Romo heal. And i hate the Cowboys btw so its not like i care that much but damn

      • Vinny says:
        (link)

        @ThE sHiT: Forsett was only dropped cause they didn’t want to pay him. He has been re-signed today. Jackass

        @Chicken Dinner: He might have been using my snapshot rankings I did a while ago, not the updated ones in the Draft Kit… I probably should have done a better job relaying that. I’m going to take them down for now so not to confuse.

        • Vinny says:
          (link)

          @Jay: yes jay that was my mistake. I didn’t realize there was a draft kit. Thank you for clarifying. Cheers

            Jay says:
            (link)

            @Vinny: No worries! I share part of that blame. I’ll be honest, I have Lewis in one league where I drafted him before the injury… I’m holding for now.

    • mike says:
      (link)

      @Vinny: if you can stash him on a d.l spot do that for now. If he takes up a roster spot drop him for blount. Mike wallace, powel, mckinon, dorset, coates, jimmy graham, are names I would grab and drop him. In a 14 teaam league these names should be around. In fact all these names are owned in my 12 team league. Im dropping jordan howard though because I need a kicker. Dion lewis will likely be out until the patriots bye is over. I think thats week ten at the earliest hes expected back. Even then is a question mark

  2. Nick says:
    (link)

    Let’s play with you “experts” ! ;)

    MVP: Antonio Brown… the one and only! David Johnson RB
    Sleeper: i like Amary Cooper WR here – Kirk Cousins QB – TJ Yeldon RB
    Bust: Jamal Charles RB – B.Marshall WR
    Infatuation: Andrew Luck,,, my last year starting QB, so i’m afraid, -Thomas Rawls RB
    Come Back: now healthy … Jimmy Graham?
    RoY: Derrick Henry RB (from week5 in Mia)- Michael Thomas NO WR

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: I think Yeldon fits the best there for sleeper, I think everyone knows what Coops can do. Graham is a great one, surprised Tehol didn’t go with that one.

    Howdy jay!

    .5 PPR,

    Draft is tonight !! We have two keepers, I kept David Johnson. He’ll be my RB1, since I kept just one player I have an extra pick. Keepers are round 1 & 2. Snake starts round 3. I’ll have pick #3. Who to target if available, Zeke Elliot, NUK Hopkins? If neither are available, any names you’d like?

    • Jay

      @Bob the builder: Good luck! Probably Elliot. If not, just go best available, probably emphasis on WR.

    Your thoughts on Kevin B I just read,that his snap count for week 1 is somewhere between 30 and 35 dude got injured like 10 years ago at least it feels that long ago is he safe to start. My other option is Diggs or Dorsett. I really like Dorsett a lot this year but wanted to see how he’s being utilized first. The other option would be Pryor Wich I could see getting a lot of targets until Gordon gets back ?
    Thanks bto

    well if rodgers did it i’d be even more skeptical on the one hand (i.e. he’s been at the top of the game for years and years and just now said something), but on the other hand he’s a white guy refusing to look the other way when cops (usually white people) murder unarmed people with no punishments, while back on the third hand (often called a foot) it’s MUCH easier for a pigmentally challenged guy to say it’s bad when cops murder unarmed non-pigmentally challenged people as it doesn’t really affect them nearly the same (i mean i doubt there’s any chance rodger’s family members get suicided by cop, whereas with kaepernick that could’ve already happened, and still could at any time, i doubt rodgers ever gets pulled over for driving while white etc)

    but yeah, anybody at the top of an industry doing this would be more influential of course.

      Jay says:

      @The Harrow: Ah, thanks for continuing the convo over here, other thread was getting crowded. Yeah, it was probably a lazy comp, but you raise some good points here. I think Wisconsin needs this as much as Frisco at this point.

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: not saying this stuff happens everywhere in america, but it’s certainly mostly all over at the very least semi-urban areas or counties of urban areas.

        it certainly has changed how an “average” person views these areas now, just 2 years ago if one of these “average” people heard somebody mention they were from near Ferg MO (STL county) they’d immediately jump to one of these things (at least internally, somewhat):
        1. the cops are about the same as Rodney King LA cops
        2. it matches the bad parts of DET/south CHI/WAS DC/north STL/worst part of BAL etc. as far as being a “violence abundant area”
        as if Ferg was some sort of extreme area concerning these things. it simply isn’t, it’s very common for areas all around to have nearly the same conditions concerning points 1,2 or both.
        anybody that denies this should really think of this: did all these murders by cop just start in last few years or did they always happen, and it’s just cell phone technology (that can record easily, and nearly everybody has one) that’s changed? the answer, probabilistically is quite obvious.

        • The Harrow says:
          (link)

          @The Harrow: i didn’t mean to say rodgers was a lazy comp, in fact, the “kaepernicking” could easily bleed into players of just that magnitude using their influence in just this way.

I live 30 mins from Ferguson and have a great deal compassion for that shit hole but don’t be confused they have done themselves no favors.

          @The Harrow: Yes, I agree, there are certainly issues. There is a problem with the Cops, with the outreach, and the response. I think the biggest problem is, there is no solution that can happen right away. All of this takes time and effort, and I’m not sure what needs to happen to fix such a thing.

          • The Harrow says:
            (link)

            @Jay: having compassion or not for shitholes (both places and humans) isn’t important here.
            and whether anybody agrees with “they have done themselves no favors” (i don’t), i never claimed nor mentioned that, but even in the event they didn’t nor ever will that isn’t the same issue as cops emptying clips into unarmed people and having no punishments for it. in STL county back in around 2001 they actually went ahead and changed the law to make it such that any officer “who can reasonably said to be afraid, can kill with basically no ramifications.” i remember the EXACT instance that prompted the cop lobby to change the law to that. it was at the jack in the box that used to be at the top of the n.hanley metro station (just off I-170). me and my friend drove home past it on way back from a concert at the time. now, since ANY officer can “reasonably” be argued by a lawyer to be “afraid” at all times on the job, cops in STL county/STL do in fact have a license (or badge as it were) to kill. few talked about this after the fact among “average people”, but i told everybody from other areas they will never indict wilson in ferg, he’s lawed up and has a pass. cops that have done much worse weren’t indicted, so in this case if they did it, it would only be due to politics.

            they JUST now, 4-5 years after the fact, are finally charging another cop who (on video, which of course just surfaced from a lay person who had it the whole time) killed a guy, planted a gun on him (the gun had no evidence of being the victims’ no DNA, nothing, but there was a lot of cop DNA on the gun), and now his own partner sold him out saying as they chased the guy he said “we’re gonna kill this guy tonight” during the chase (that last part of course could just be the partner distancing himself of any charge). till the video was leaked to the press, the fact of a gun having ONLY the cop’s DNA on it wasn’t enough to prompt any kind of charge.

            before cell phone cams, NONE of these would be written up as anything other than armed people being killed in ACTUAL defense (not just fear). The needed gun would find a way into the dead guy’s hand at some point. i’m sure people other than the non-pigmentally challenged community in LA took note that “if rodney king’s event was on camera” i wonder how many other times this stuff goes on. well, quite a bit, apparently, now that there are literally hundreds of cameras around most blocks, just moving around all over, so cops (nor anybody else) simply don’t know if/when they are on cameras they don’t control (they somehow get to conveniently turn off theirs whenever they please, and that’s still legal too)
            the cop camera issue is actually much worse than the right to kill as long as they can claim fear issue.

              (link)

              @The Harrow: funny thing is the brown murder isn’t even close to as bad asmany that happened after (worse in the sense that’s it’s just garbage for a cop to claim he’s afraid and needed to empty entire clips into unarmed people)

  9. Jay!

    After you helping me win some fantasy football for the past two years I was all pumped to start drafting again today. Then, when it was time to draft and I go to pull up the website… Server not found! :( Glad you guys are back up and running but I was left scrambling using whatever other blogs I could find asap for help.

    I ended up with the following team, and not too sure how good they are. Thoughts? Guys I should drop asap for whatever good pickup comes along?

    1. (01) Todd Gurley (LA – RB)
    2. (20) Mike Evans (TB – WR)
    3. (21) Le’Veon Bell (Pit – RB)

    13. (121) Jerick McKinnon (Min – RB)
    14. (140) Mason Crosby (GB – K)
    15. (141) Ryan Tannehill (Mia – QB)

        • @I don’t want to brag, but i have irritable bowel syndrome: I def panicked on Rivers. I was all set to take Luck or Roth with that pick and both got grabbed right before I went and I had to scramble to figure out what to do. I immediately regretted it.

          Since I had back to back picks and already had 2 RB and a WR I planned to take a WR and QB with those picks. I didnt want to wait another 20 picks for a QB as I like having a top one and a bunch were gone already and I felt a run coming.

            • @Jay: Nice!

              Cam, Breese, Luck, Roth and Wilson were all taken already (I was wrong above, it was Wilson or Luck I planned to take that were both taken right before I picked). I figured if I didn’t jump on a QB I could be down into a whole different tier of players.

      @The discarded head of Ted Williams: Yeah, went down for a while there. Labor day vacation for the server I guess!

      I think it’s pretty good. What format is this? 2 QB? I like Gurley and Evans as openers in any format. Cobb is a great pick there too, love the value.

      • @Jay: 1 QB. IDK why I picked Tannehill. There was a cache of this site on my comp so I was able to see the front page and there was an article on him that I could not fully read. I was regretting my QB choice so he seemed like a good backup hail mary with my last pick.

        I just moved to L.A. and have decided to take on the Rams as my hometown team (I can’t give up on the Mets or Knicks no matter how hard I try) so I figured to use #1 on my home town boy.

    12 teamer PPR with 6 pt td’s and 6 pt bonuses for going 300 yds thrown, 100 yds rushed/caught. 12th slot. no flex.
    QB brees (6), stafford (13, brees is old, last year i had brees/stafford, and grabbed bortles over stafford midseason, which won me a super bowl)
    RB (start 2) – l.bell (2nd), langford (5), yeldon (7), d-will (11), howard (13)
    WR (start 3) – hopkins (1), hilton (3), cobb (4), marv jones (8), wheaton (9)
    TE jimmer (10), ebron (15)
    D (these were going too fast, some autopickers, and in NFL.com autopick fills open slots before strategy of best player), LA (12)
    K tucker (16)

    1. look ok?
    2. like that i locked up PIT and CHI’s running games entirely rather than a lot of RB’s, most specifically since we can ONLY start 2. so unless ivory gets hurt i’ll only have to play yeldon 2 weeks a year, other than maybe VERY bad matchups for CHI. and i can probably drop ebron or jimmer depending on if ebron kicks major ass or jimmer completely sucks, for more RB’s.

      @nightpandas: Love the WRs you have, including Cooper at the flex. Might have trouble reaching those point thresholds with Bortles, and the RBs make me a little nervous, but you might have something with White and Ajayi.

    Hi,
    Im in a PPR league.
    I have:
    QB – luck
    RB – freeman, jennings
    WR – julio, nelson
    TE – kelce
    Flex – Cobb/d. walker
    bench – woodhead, ware, sims, aiken, coleman, v-jax

    Would you swap out coleman or V-Jax for m. bennett or james white?

    Thanks

      @Pokemon are Pokegone: I think you’re set for RBs… with Wood, Ware, Sims on the bench, I’d probably keep V-Jax around as a backup. Keep Coleman just in case for Freeman.

    I’m in a 10 team 1/2 ppr

    I have Rivers as my QB

    Any reason to hold a 2nd QB?
    Tyrod Taylor is available. I would have to cut Torrie Smith to pick him up.

    Thanks.

      @Pokemon are Pokegone: Naw, keep Smith. Rivers is fine here, and so are just one QBs. Even in 12-team leagues it’s fine.

  14. So my wife is playing in our league and she has no idea about football (this is a new league of all family members, cousins and whatnot).

    She just picked based on names. All I did was guide her a bit on her first 2 picks and told her not to draft a kicker/defense till the end.

    I think she drafted a pretty awesome team.

    Unicorn Farts
    1. (5) Odell Beckham Jr. (NYG – WR)
    2. (16) Mark Ingram (NO – RB)
    3. (25) Cam Newton (Car – QB)
    4. (36) T.Y. Hilton (Ind – WR)
    5. (45) Jeremy Hill (Cin – RB)
    6. (56) Stefon Diggs (Min – WR)
    7. (65) Zach Ertz (Phi – TE)
    8. (76) Danny Woodhead (SD – RB)
    9. (85) Los Angeles (LA – DEF)
    10. (96) Blake Bortles (Jax – QB)
    11. (105) Corey Coleman (Cle – WR)
    12. (116) Graham Gano (Car – K)
    13. (125) Michael Thomas (NO – WR)
    14. (136) Charles Sims (TB – RB)
    15. (145) Tevin Coleman (Atl – RB)

    14 team standard super flex dynasty that even more overvalues QB’s. (25 yards per thrown yd, 15 per point on rushed/caught yard). 1 regular flex as well (WR/TE/RB)
    QB palmer/keenum/goff (just drafted goff at 6th overall)
    RB (start 2) hyde/coleman/woodhead/gurley, and just drafted dixon and booker (barely missed a top 5 rookie WR at 20th, went dixon, and booker ranked higher overall at last pick)
    WR (only start 2) dez/green/cooks/d.adams/m.jones
    TE j.thomas/walker
    D MIN
    K mcmanus
    due to the QB thing am i better off stashing a low end backup (geno/sanchize/hill), or another WR mitchell/caroo/brax/ over booker? guessing this is a hold unless i have a WR injury. booker probably more likely to get value or keep it, but only 3 QB (and only 2 teams) has me nervous.

      @Yr never too old for balloons: Having three, I think that’s enough here for the super flex format. I’d probably go with some RB depth there for now.

    This post was terrible… Razzball you can do better. Change the name to from razzballs to baseballs. Your baseball advice is the best ive read. Your Footbal advice has left me doing alot more of my own research on other sites. I use to only use razzball. I had a draft yesterday and I took razzballs rankings with me as a guide. There was players ranked in the top 200 who wont be active this year. Players like ferguson, and powel or injured guys like ladarious green were ranked and highly ranked. I hate to diss on razzball I been greys number one gam since 2010 maybe longer but you guys need him back in football or just step it up. Im not impressed so ar with the advice ive gotten. Who needs to know he defintion of a sleeper or a bust.

      @mike: Josh Ferguson isn’t in my top-200, Bilal Powell is active at the moment, and Ladarius Green is currently ranked at TE25, -5 from the average and -10 from his current ADP in standard leagues.

      Source: http://football.razzball.com/2016-razzball-fantasy-football-draft-kit

      We’ve also ranked in the top-20 percentile of all experts when it comes to accuracy since I’ve been here.

      I actually don’t know what you’re talking about, but door’s on your left just the same.

      @mike: Grey’s never had ANYTHING to do with the football side, go ask him, and if you “remember” him having been here only your brain thinks that. and if you think other sites update rankings as often as Jaywrong here you should DO your homework, since they simply don’t. lots of stuff changes everyday, and if you had a draft 12 hours or so before Jaywrong adjusted something just move the player down in the rankings yourself manually, or ask Jay where player X would move down or up to now with whatever changed recently, he’ll very often see it within a few hours.

      @Bob the builder: Wait, who’s this Derek guy? Haha.

      Well, I have deep love for Rivers, so that part is fantastic. Love your WRs too. I don’t see any obvious upgrades for your bench. As for your TE, I kinda like Green, but I’m okay holding onto ASJ to see what happens, a definite sleeper this year.

        @Jay:

        Thoughts about my D/St? Of course I’ll be streaming here, same w/ kicker.

        Week 1 SF hosts the Rams & case Keemun/ gurley & co.

        Or drop Niners D for either Rams D (who are on the road facing Gabbart.

        Jets D (week 1 faces bengals)

    10 team half of pt ppr dynasty

    Thin at RB with McCoy ivory and Freeman. Need another one woodhead on the wire going to drop tevin Colman do you like that move?

    Now here is where it gets I have decker Marshall fitz Keenan Allen Alshon Jeffery Micheal Floyd Allen hurns at WR have to drop one for a team D who would you drop and not think twice about?

      Jay says:

      @Rob: Yes, I’d pick up Woodhead in a heartbeat here. I know it’s a handcuff, but I think he’s valuable in a league like this. Tough one on the Wrs… I think it has to be Hurns.
