What’s up Turkey Day fans? Hopefully you’re enjoying a ridiculous amount of food and libations in a safe place with people you enjoy today. It’s holiday fantasy football and I’ve been around the community long enough to know it’s just us degenerates sitting at the table playing 500. Did you keep score? Nah, me neither. Pour another libation and turn the TV on loud, it’s going to be a long day. Let’s see if we can’t save our fantasy football teams while we’re at it.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Each week I’ll be spending countless hours flipping coins in order to determine an order for my weekly rankings which will be published bright and early each Wednesday morning. It’s an elaborate round-robin coinflipping system for each position. Wide receivers alone take me a full Monday worth of coin flips. And I’m currently in the process of filing for workers comp due to carpal tunnel. But it’s well worth it, knowing that you, the loyal Razzball reader, appreciate my pain and sweat. Just so you know you can trust me, here’s how my coin flipping system stacked up against all of the other 149 industry analysts competing against me in the 2020 Fantasy Pros Weekly Ranking Competition:
Anyway, here’s my week 12 rankings for half PPR 2021 fantasy football that will be frequently updated by coin flip up until kickoff:

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you Razzball readers and podcast listeners. With Donkey Teeth off doing who knows what, it felt appropriate to bring in Razzball contest extraordinaire, Coolwhip (@CoolwhipRB) to top off the Thanksgiving pod. Fresh off his top 10 finish in the 1st week of the RazzBowl playoffs, we discuss a little bit of his roster and how he built for the RazzBowl and RazzSlam. Before getting into all the football happenings, we answer the biggest question of the week, what is our 1.01 of Thanksgiving food?
We talk about some players returning from injury, Saquon Barkley and Miles Sanders among them. We discuss the big days from Jonathan Taylor and Austin Ekeler, and who could possibly give JT a run for his #1 spot ROS. A couple of QBs had less than stellar weeks. Coolwhip and I give you our thoughts on starting Dak and Mahomes after duds this week. Did you think 2021 would be so weird that Cam Newton would be a more trustworthy start than Russell Wilson?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tuesdays at Razzball Fantasy Football are going to be “lit,” as the kids say. Although I’m not sure if the kids put it in quotation marks, I’ll have to check in with VH1 on that. Regardless, we have the one and only The Joey Wright leading off every Tuesday morning with his in-depth waiver wire advice column. Then Blair (or JB!) spins his MNF narrative with an eloquent Monday Night Football recap and Paul Blake shares some deep league thoughts. Finally, I’ll bring it up the rear with my rest of season rankings broken down by position. Reminder, these rest of season rankings are only a very rough guideline to be used for trade formulation and other roster decisions. These are geared toward half PPR formats and should be adjusted accordingly for your particular league settings. Anyway, here’s the updated positional rankings for the rest of the half PPR 2021 fantasy football season:

“Buy Jonathan Taylor.” – July Donkey Teeth
After Jonathan Taylor’s five-touchdown performance this week, July Donkey can finally come out of hiding. You see, poor July Donkey was forced into hiding after being chased to the ends of the earth by the angry fantasy football echo chamber mob. In a secluded mountain cave, he made his home, living on nothing but wild berries and peyote root. Biding his time, until the all-clear siren sounded, as Jonathan Taylor crossed the goal line a 5th time on Sunday afternoon. Now July Donkey is returning to civilization, carrying a message for the fantasy world: buy Miles Sanders. Since Sanders and July Donkey went away, the Eagles’ offense has shifted their RB usage from non-existent, to somewhat existent. In his return to action, Sanders immediately handled his season-high, 16 carries. There’s a chance you can acquire the Eagles explosive back for RB3/flex type value and Sanders still has legitimate RB1 upside if the volume is there. Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell thiPlease, blog, may I have some more?
Week 12 is upon us, and only 4-5 weeks remain until playoff season. Many of you (myself included) are down to making dollar bids. If your team is in a rebuild, you may be sitting on a surplus of faab, now is a great time to trade some of that faab for a draft pick or high-upside player. For those of you with contending teams, you may be down one $1 per week, so use it wisely. I have a few player suggestions here, and of course, I have them at all the pertinent positions.Please, blog, may I have some more?
SEO titles? Whatever. Prime time football has been anything but exciting this year as the matchup makers somewhere in a private bunker in Norad provided Santa tracking and NFL scheduling. “The Giants are a fun team!” Somebody shouted and everybody agreed, and 11 weeks into the season, NFL fans were treated to a 30-10 drubbing on prime time football. OK, Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski were out there doing their thang (which is basically calling each other on the phone and pretending to be somebody else) but everybody else basically treated it like a scrimmage game. Over on ESPN 2, Peyton and Eli welcomed several puzzling guests on to their show after running out of guests like Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and so on. Instead, the fans of Monday Night Football were treated to analysis by former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice while the usual broadcast crew couldn’t pronounce “Chris Godwin” correctly, favoring the moniker “Goodwin” for the Super Bowl-winning, Pro Bowl-making, 5-year veteran of the league. And we wonder why armchair journalists writing on semi-serious fantasy football sites are the ones getting all the love. [sigh] OK, let’s see if we can make sense of anything for your fantasy football teams.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sometimes you must know when to say goodbye. Sometimes we hold on for too long to something or someone who needs to go. Being in our lives gives us a sense of hope however false it may be. Whether you are bidding adieu to a reunited love on a tarmac, releasing your best friend back into the wild where they belong, or cutting Curtis Samuel about eight weeks later than most other fantasy managers: sometimes it is best to set them free. The playoffs are not far off and now is the time to start shaping those rosters for the tough journey ahead.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s hard to believe that 2 months ago, Donkey Teeth was sleeping in a dumpster outside of Krispy Kreme and burning expired donuts for heat. One day, his muscle shirt got singed by the flame of a glazed gone wrong. The scorch marks on his only shirt formed the shape of a running back, and that scorch mark turned into a prophecy. Donkey Teeth placed two bear claws on his hands and found the nearest internet-equipped machine where he typed, “Jonathan Taylor RB1” to all the people who would listen. Now that November has arrived and Donkey Teeth has upgraded his abode to a camper that he parks in a Taco Bell parking lot, it seems like people are finally understanding the meaning of Donk. Let’s see what other news we can dig up from the Sunday slate:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sunday morning has arrived and you spent all weekend on a drinking binge? Or worse (maybe better?), you’ve been up for 48 hours on six different types of drugs? Fear not, Razzball has all of your last-minute fantasy football needs covered. Over the past two days, Bobby has covered the best defensive matchups this week for wide receivers and Rest of Season Buy/Fades based on matchups. Down below I’ll give you some sneaky start options who might be available in your free agent pool if you’re in a bind, as well as my recently updated week 11 rankings for half PPR leagues. Feel free to ask me questions in the comments if you think the rankings don’t address your specific circumstances. And please, please, please consider purchasing our 2021 fantasy football tools subscription. As intelligent and handsome as we all agree I am, my rankings are still packed full of bias and human error. Rudy’s computer model minimizes the human inputs and leans heavily on raw, untainted data inputs to provide a very valuable, differing viewpoint. Plus you receive all kinds of other benefits with your subscription including next-day snap count and target rate data. Anyway, here’s a few sneaky starts for week 11 of the 2021 fantasy football season:Please, blog, may I have some more?
