2019 Football Draft Kit

Controversy struck the Ditka, Sausage, and Fantasy Sports podcast this week. If you didn’t know, that’s the podcast that I do with Donkey Teeth here on Razzball (shameless plug). Anyway, we have our season long bets that we refer to as stogie bets. We started with steak and liquor, but that was stolen from another podcast and Donkey Teeth doesn’t eat steak so that reward was pretty tilted toward one side. As Ditka-ites, Ditka followers, Ditkaheads, we both enjoy a nice cigar and decide on stogie bets.

One of those bets was whether Tyrod Taylor would start for the Browns all season or not, barring injury. That was the bet and no more was said about it. Well, Tyrod got hurt in week 3 and we had the first Baker Mayfield sighting. Tyrod was concussed and didn’t return to the game, and Baker has been announced as the starter for week 4 regardless of Tyrod’s health situation and clearing the concussion protocol.

Regretfully I am back stateside after traveling to Curacao last week. If you enjoy traveling I would highly recommend checking out the island. It didn’t take long for the afterglow of the trip to wear off though, I had to fly home with a slight cold. It’s safe to say that I will never get irritated at screaming children on a airplane again. I thought my ears were going to explode. As I stepped off the plane I noticed that my ears were completely blocked. Despite this, I managed to make it through immigration and TSA to catch my connecting flight, only to go through the process of having my eardrums almost burst once more. It took a full week for my hearing to come back, but during that time I was able to catch up on week 2 and 3 and now I am back to help you with your Dynasty teams.

I’ve reached the final evolution of this column I think. From now on, these wounded warriors will be listed alphabetically and for each of them I’ll be giving you my take on whether or not they’ll play and whether or not you should start him in your line-up.

Let me know what you think of this format and if there are any changes you’d like me to make. And as always, drop a comment in the comment section below and follow me on Twitter: @Kerry_Klug!

B_Don and Donkey Teeth profile two sexy young wide receivers this week as they dig into the film on Mike Williams and Tyler Boyd. Take a look for both of these young gents on you waiver wire.

Then the sausage fest gets extra juicy as the boys are joined by Razzball’s own Rotowan. They chat about goofy elimination and vampire leagues, Phillip Lindsay, and get Rotowan’s take on Mike Williams and Tyler Boyd. The show is rounded out with a little game of Sausage/Cheesehead/Ditka (Buy/Sell/Hold). Enjoy your weekly sausage here:

What is up Razzonians?! This feels weird, awesome, daunting, exhilarating, monumental, and cool, all at the same time. My name is Andy Singleton, and I cruise through social media under the handle @PeoplezPen.

Some of you may know me, some not, either way, all good. Some of you may like me, some of you may not, either way, all good. I feel like Razzball and I have been kindred spirits since I dove head first into this industry some six years ago. So, to now be writing my first post here is truly an honor.

Why am I here? I am actually not entirely sure (but don’t tell the powers that be – no one likes a snitch). In a nutshell, I run a Fantasy Football tournament called Draft With Giants that is now in it’s 4th year. It has doubled each time and now boasts 192 participants, the majority of which are “Giants” of the industry. For those of you familiar with the Scott Fish Bowl, this is an exact rip-off of that, only it is a Best Ball contest, and has about 700 teams less. (Don’t worry, Scott is fully aware of this, and has been an owner since inception).

Still, what does that mean to you, and why am I here? Again, I really don’t know! But I am, so hopefully you’re still reading this, and hearing me out. And if not, deal with it. Having all of these participants, I didn’t want to lose out on getting good content from them. Since I have been making videos in the past few years, I thought, why not do a little series mimicking Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, only with Fantasy Football nerds not getting coffee at all, but telling some anecdotes of their lives, and sharing some general fantasy wisdom. (Jerry has no clue of this, so if you know him, don’t tell him, unless you think he’d approve). Anyhoo, that’s what this is all about; having access to hundreds of people and trying to draw out of them some interesting things to entertain you. Thus, ‘The #DWG Experience’ was born.

Now you know why I am here, and if you are still here too, I’m having my own questions. Enough already, moving on to the meat and potatoes. This is my third episode/installment/whatever these actually are, and it features Brad Ziegler (yes, Major League Closer, Brad Ziegler), Sigmund Bloom (Football Guys), and Matt Walker (Dynasty Football Factory). I hope you enjoy, and I welcome any and all feedback – whether good, or bad. I can’t make these better without your help, but they can definitely get worse. So, don’t be shy. Thanks for your time!

In just four days I will be at Soldier Field watching my Buccaneers try to get to 3-1. I’ve known that I have been going to this game since the schedule came out. The only differences between then and now are that the Buccaneers are 2-1 when I thought they would be 0-3 coming into this game and I don’t know who will be starting at quarterback. It has to be Fitzpatrick, right? He has three straight 400 yard games and the beard of a Greek God.

Welcome back, my Lovelies, to another e-rousing week of Hit it or Quit it, with Yours Truly, your Goddess of innuendo. Last week I regaled you all with the Fifty Shades of Grey style beating I took, but I have to say, compared to this week, last week was a walk in the park. Albeit a physically abusive walk in the park, but a walk in the park nonetheless. Yeah, you heard that right. I have taken the pounding of a lifetime this week and went a solid 0-5 in all of my leagues. Hey, even the best of us have to be put in our place sometimes and it seems that Week 3 was that week for me. I am not used to being in the position of a submissive and I honestly don’t like it. For me, being able to put you men in your place and school you on how things are done is what really gets me off. So now I am left wanting and non-satiated. One of two things is going to happen now. I will either make the blood sacrifice to the Black Widow Curse and appease her for my own gratification, or it will backfire mercilessly. I am hoping for the former. Speaking of the Black Widow Curse, she continues to maintain her consistency, it seems, and spent Week 3 feasting on your rosters again. Players are dropping faster than panties at a Wayne Newton concert. Granted, they are your mom and grandma’s panties, but panties nevertheless. See how evil I am? I managed to get you to think about your mom’s panties in an article about fantasy football. Anyhoo, I suppose you all came here for more than to just admire my wit and my gorgeous face (seriously??). For now, it seems I am going to have to wait until Week 4 to reclaim my dominance but in the meantime, I can give you all what you want. Ladies and gentlemen, convicts and perverts, have your cash in hand because here comes Week 4’s edition of Hit it or Quit it.

Peyton Barber is in the midst of another pathetic game as I’m writing this. He’s at 8 rushing attempts for 33 yards and I don’t see that number growing more than that. If the Buccaneers are serious about winning they’ll release their rookie RB Ronald Jones on the league for week 4. Either way — he’ll make his debut soon and have no one in his way from quickly gaining RB1 status. He’s currently unowned in about 80% of leagues, but smart owners (that’s you!) will start sitting on him now to reap the benefits later.

I woke up Sunday morning with the idea that the most enjoyable part of my day was going to be the 5 hours of smoking pork chops (they were fantastic, thank you for asking) and spare ribs throughout the Bills-Vikings game that was surely to be a blowout. Then the game started and Josh Allen did his Superman TD dive for the opening score. Then the Bills forced a turnover and scored again. And again. And again. Eventually I was so enamored with Allen that I forgot to put more wood chips on the charcoal (Applewood for you smoking enthusiasts who were dying to know what wood I was using). I still am in shock as to what happened in that game and how it all unfolded, but let’s dive into that one to start and go through a couple other games afterwards.
