2019 Football Draft Kit

Tired of clicking multiple links just to look up where one of our writers ranked Gerald Everett? Wondering who Gerald Everett is? Good, because I’m with you on both counts! With MB and Zach providing the Razzball readers with their own rankings (a contrarian consensus, as I like to say, to pretend I’m clever), we’re going to provide our 2017 Fantasy Football Staff Rankings for the first time ever, a place where you can find all of our weekly rankings in one spot! The players will be sorted by our average ranking, providing you a great way to see how the Razzball Staff feels (questions posted in our comment section will be answered by all ranking writers!), and it’ll also provide our specific rankings so you know how each of us feel about a player. So many feels, so little time. Follow us after the jump for your Official 2017 Razzball Staff Rankings for Week 7!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my son. It is a beautiful thing to see part of you walking around outside your own body. Personally, I don’t get why there are so many Facebook things about “oh I wish my kid would stay young forever!” The joy is in watching them grow and gain new skills. But holy f*ck, stop getting me sick little dude. I wish I had the brain power to type something witty and funny here for an intro, but my sinuses are honestly impeding my frontal cortex. So bear with my Phineaus Gage semi-strep lobotomized article this week. We’re still going streaking! As always I focus on players that are owned in less than 65% of Yahoo leagues following waivers on Thursday mornings. I know you got that green hat Snoop-a-loop.

Another above average week (that’s what she said), but we haven’t had a finish this year, besides Week 1, that really shifted the numbers up. From what the accuracy breakdown shows, we’re still have some trouble gauging running backs (and to a lesser extent, DSTs), but getting a better ranking for quarterbacks is another goal, something that wasn’t a worry just a few weeks ago. Our IDP results are pretty strong I’d have to say, this being the first year I’ve specifically provided those, and I’m sure now knowing who Yannick Ngakoue is will benefit my life in some manner or form.

The overall trends are still looking okay, and we’re moving up gradually back nearer to the top-20’s where I generally assume these rankings will separate our community results from other sites. While there’s still a lot of football left, the fantasy playoffs are drawing closer and closer and we should all have a sense of whether or not we have a team that can move forward. With that said, our Week 7 Rankings for Standard, Half-PPR, PPR and IDP leagues are right after the jump! (And our Rest of Season rankings have been updated and can be found here!)

Hello everyone, and welcome to Thursday! Football is back tonight! My apologies for having to publish my rankings a day late, as I was a bit tied up outside of the womb that is Razzball.com, but don’t worry, I am back and better(?) than ever!

Today after my rankings, I will be providing some of the players that I am high on, that also pretty much correlates with the Razzball projections to get you guys an early look at some Razzball certified picks for Week 7!

Let’s have it then!

Over the next two weeks of this rankings post, let’s celebrate and reflect on the biggest surprises and disappointments of the fantasy season so far. Since I am a “glass is half empty” kind of guy, we’ll start with the disappointments. By the way, I saw an article recently that said it might actually be better to be a “glass is half empty” person because you are more in tune with reality and more likely to seek a solution to whatever it is that you are being a “Debbie Downer” about. I’m going to reference that exact point next time someone says that I’m bringing the mood down, when in all actuality, I’m just trying to ruin their good time. Ask Zach, I do it to him all of the time.

The Giants finally got off the schneid this past week when they upset the Denver Broncos. More importantly, they started giving the ball to Orleans Darkwa, something a certain Razzball writer has been asking for for what seems like two years now. Paul Perkins, your reign of terrible tip-toeing to the line of scrimmage is over!

Darkwa took 21 carries for 117 yards with a long of 47 yards and added a catch for 13 yards. OD seemed to always produce when given limited touches, and he did the unthinkable when given a full supply of touches: continued to produce! Who would have thought such a thing was possible! Oh, right, everyone who, like me, have been clamoring for Darkwa for two years.

After turning eight carries into 69 yards for a nice little average of 8.625 yards per carry, OD rushed for more than 5.5 yards per carry on nearly three times as many carries. The logical assumption would be the keep feeding him the ball. However, with this year’s New York Giants, who knows what to expect, but a few things are working in OD’s favor.

For starters, the Giants lost roughly 14 wide receivers to injuries over the last two weeks. And in better news for Darkwa, Ben McAdoo handed over play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan. Now, I don’t know a ton about Sullivan, but he does have one very important quality: he isn’t Ben McAdoo. Oh, and he seemed to enjoy employing a more balanced offense that featured a running back who has been having success.

The Broncos had boasted one of the league’s better rushing defenses heading into last week’s game, but they barely slowed Darkwa down for most of the day. Granted, his yards per carry average is boosted by that one long run, but he was still hitting holes fast and running hard and should have earned himself a steady taste of touches at least in the short term. I have been stashing OD in a deep roster dynasty league for two years now, and it looks like I might finally get to play him. Hooray for me.

Now, to the charts!

I’ll warn you right now — there aren’t a lot of great QB fill in options this week. Lots of tough match-ups or under performing players. I had to recommend what remains of Teddy Bridgewater for Pete Carroll’s sake! You won’t see him listed in this article, but my prediction from last week of Colin Kaepernick getting a job still remains! Even if he’s now suing the exact people who could possibly offer him a job…

This week will see the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans getting the week off. You’ll need help replacing Matthew Stafford, Deshaun Watson, Lamar Miller, DeAndre Hopkins, Golden Tate and Ameer Abdullah.
