Patience. It’s not natural. No one is born with it. If you have kids you know this…it’s not the default. And this plays right into the benefit of the general fantasy population for the game’s most popular sport. It’s all inclusive, all right now.

Come on in, grab a beer. Have a seat and pick some football players for a little more than an hour. It’s so easy. Then, check it twice a week for five minutes total and dominate the emotional well-being of your co-workers, friends, and neighbors. Hell, sit behind a screen and obliterate complete strangers from around the world. And when Sunday rolls around you just gave yourself a reason to veg in front of the TV, be incredibly distracted at church, watch the stattracker on your phone while driving and totally neglect everyone of importance in your life for the sake of yelling at John Kuhn when he vultures a TD from anyone of fantasy relevance on the Packers. It’s simple and easy for everyone to play. Millennials rejoice! Participation! (As a millennial, I’d like to state on the record I will not give my kids trophies for finishing last…)

We are now entering a creative Renascence, as I like to call it, in terms of our episode titles. You know, people tell me all the time “Jay, stop creating! You’re part of the zeitgeist that makes expression tantamount to the world on a metaphysical level” and my response is always: “wha?”. That being said, we’ve got the NFL Draft to talk about, and so naturally, we do! Matt and Zach arrived a bit tardy, so Tehol and I wax poetic about Marshawn Lynch’s return to the NFL and wonder if the AFC West has the potential to be the best division in football next season. Then the draft talk begins, and we close on a few notes on what we have planned for the preseason and some shows we’ll be watching and discussing in the mean time. And we also talk about Zach being either Jewish or Amish. For some reason. Blame Tehol. Enjoy!

Note: Oh, since you know a hallmark of our shows is the amazing #productionvalue, Matt and Tehol lost connection right before we plugged their Twitters. You can find Tehol here and Matt here

The NFL draft is now behind us and there is a lot to digest.  The Bears made the worst trade in the history of the draft and teams were able to find some value later on Thursday night.  I’m going to pick a couple handfuls of the picks throughout the draft and let you know what you can expect from a fantasy football standpoint.

It’s very difficult to gauge rookie production going into a new season but there are players who were drafted to play a big role right away.  Training camp and the preseason obviously will be the biggest deciding factor for every player’s participation in the regular season, but what is the fun in waiting?  We should talk about football now, we should try and make projections all of the time.  Plus, the more that I write, the more opportunities there are for you to tell me that I’m wrong…

Hello everyone, and welcome to another post in our 2017 NFL Draft Series! Currently it looks a little something like this:

2017 NFL Draft Series: Intro | Team Previews 1-16 | Team Previews 17-32 | QB and TE’s Preview | HB and WR’s Preview

It’s Draft Day you guys! Are you excited? I’m pretty excited! I think Matt might be excited! After a couple of months of podcasting and posting, we are coming down to the final two posts in our series! This year’s draft is shaping up to be a very exciting and eventful one, so enough chatter!

Let’s get to it!

If you thought our production value couldn’t get any worse, you’re sorta right. As with everything on the site, the blame probably lies at Zach’s feet, but since he’s the young one, we’ll just go ahead and blame Tehol. In our newest episode (it’s been a while, we know), Zach, Matt Bowe, and Tehol play the part of GM and take turns selecting players in a mock draft that will probably not even end up being close to what happens when all is said and done. But that’s okay! We’re here to have fun, make static noises, and to listen Tehol try to talk and drive at the same time. For probably the 10 episode in a row. Enjoy!

First of all, I don’t know what Zach is complaining about. He was given the two positions where players can make the biggest impact in fantasy football at the beginning of their careers. Leave it to such a millennial baby to complain about an opportunity to have his star truly shine. His complaining aside, Zach did a fantastic job previewing running backs and wide receivers, you can check it out here. Now it’s time to preview the quarterbacks and the tight ends we keep hearing and reading about for the 2017 NFL draft.

Fantasy impact is pretty tough to project without first knowing the landing spot of a prospect. So I’ll write about skill sets and best or worst fits for each of these players. After checking out this article, you can look forward to Zach’s first-round mock draft that he has longed to write up since he started blowing our minds with fantasy football knowledge. In the next couple of weeks, I’m going to put out a review of the actual landing spots for our fantasy relevant rookies…

Hello everyone, and welcome to the fourth article in our NFL Draft series! Here is a look at the other three to reference:

2017 NFL Draft Series: Intro | Team Previews 1-16 | Team Previews 17-32

I’m getting more and more excited as the days go by, as we are getting closer and closer to the first night of the draft, which is only a few weeks away! Like I mentioned up top, this is the fourth article in our series, keep your eyes peeled for MB’s article that will be out in the coming days, discussing Quarterbacks and Tight Ends of this year’s draft class.

“Well Zach,” you might say, “it seems like Matt got the better end of the deal here!” In this scenario, you would be right. Tweet at him. Let him know this isn’t right.

Alright, enough chatter. In this post, we’ll just review the best of the best at the two positions, looking at where they would best fit in potential teams, and what it all means for your drafts come fall.

Let’s get to it!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the third post in our Razzball 2017 NFL Draft series, following up my intro and MB’s great piece on the first 16 teams of the draft.

I’ll keep it short so we can dive right back in from where we last left off, but first, I’d like to apologize. I have been absolutely slammed in my numerous events outside of Razzball, but now I am back and ready to roll now more than ever! Today we’ll take a look at the teams picking at the bottom of the draft today, and analyze how their season and off-season acquisitions will effect their strategy come draft night.

Let’s get to it!

Free agency is one of my favorite parts of football.  This is probably because my favorite team never seems to be in the playoffs so I guess it gives me a false sense of hope going into the next season.  A couple of needs get fulfilled with players that I haven’t seen play in the Buccaneer’s system and all of a sudden I can argue them into the playoffs in my head.  The Jaguars also always look like they’ve built a dangerous roster in the offseason, and then we remember by week 2 that Blake Bortles is still the quarterback.

Free agency answers a lot of questions for fantasy football as well.  Every year, the beginning of March changes the destiny of at least a few players that might be question marks in keeper leagues. Just because the player takes the biggest check doesn’t mean that they are putting themselves in the best position to put up their best possible individual numbers.  I’m going to do my best to decipher the first week of signings and trades right here.  This was a busier year than last year for the skill positions as far as I remember, so if I forget someone you wanted to read about, forgive me.  Let’s get started with one of the fastest players in football…

Welcome to my way too earlier top 100 fantasy football rankings. Doing this in March is not only fun for Zach and me, but it also builds a base for our rankings going forward as things, both large and small, inevitably happen throughout the offseason. I picked five players after the rankings list that I wanted to highlight further. Feel free to hop in the comment section and tell me how you feel.
