We now have two 2-time winners in our Razzball leagues! Commenters Calogera and D_Fresh.  Mr. Fresh had a miraculous win over Clodbuster when Chris Johnson pulled out that garbage time TD.   Fake football giveth and fake football taketh away.  Our guys both tooketh away 45 bucks a piece! Again! Congrats guys.

Last week we filled 2 ten team leagues pretty quickly so I put together three for this week.  Hopefully some day I will win one! You can join up here.  And remember if you haven’t played before you get a ten dollar bonus for signing up through any of the links below.

Razzball League 1, Razzball League 2, and Razzball League 3

My FanDuel teams in the Razzball Leagues have been less than stellar.  And that is an understatement.  Looking back at my strategy, I think I am being too predictable.  And as we know in these kinds of games (like our Weekly Contest) the most predictable is usally the least productive.  Yes, on the average the studs are going to win out long term.  Would you rather have Dwayne Bowe or Miles Austin on your H2H team?  No need to answer that, but last week on your FanDuel team you sure did.  A team of Kolb, Torain, Foster, Maclin, Bowe and Watson would have killed last weekend, but when you can choose from Peyton, Gore, CJ, AJ, Austin, Gates, it’s hard not to want to max out your FanDuel salary cap to fit the studs on your team, but that hasn’t been working for me.

I also have noticed a trend, especially for WRs to see extra attention after a big game.  Well, this is just human nature.  Running backs can have the defense bring more men into the box, but as long as there is a semblance of a passing game that is difficult to do for the whole game.  And as long as quarterbacks are passing the ball they have a chance at a good game.  Receivers can be stifled fairly easily with safety help or a stud cornerback.

QB Drew Brees: He gets the Browns at home.  I also like Philip Rivers at home, but only if Antonio Gates plays.

RB Ray Rice: He was given a ton of work and it looks like McGahee is in the dog house or on the trade block and Buffalo is absolutely awful at run defense.

RB Frank Gore: I’m not in love with the running back matchups this week, but Carolina has not been great at run defense and Gore is the focal point of the Niners offense.

I also like Peyton Hillis vs New Orleans, Knowshon Moreno vs Oakland, Steven Jackson vs Tampa Bay and Chris Johnson vs. Philadelphia.

WR Jeremy Maclin: This goes against my back to back big games theory, but with DJax gone I’m hoping he gets plenty of looks even if he is triple covered.

WR Patrick Crayton: Malcolm Floyd is out and Crayton looked to be more reliable than Davis on Sunday.  Oh and they get the Patriots craptastic pass D in southern California.

WR Brandon Lloyd: He seems to get points no matter what and Eddie Royal may be out which would help funnel an extra pass his way.

I also like Johnny Knox vs. Washinton and Larry Fitzgerald vs. Seattle

TE Aaron Hernandez: AHer was on the field longer than any Patriots receiver Sunday and is an integral part of their offense at all times. He also gets a San Diego defense that never covers tight ends.

K Whoever: See ball, kick ball.

D Kansas City Chiefs: If it’s Trent Edwards or David Garrard, I really don’t care.  The Chiefs are good at getting the ball and the Jags are sucktastic.

    Doc: I have received the following offer: I get Gore, Boldin and jacobs. I give Hillis, Best and Miles Austin. Part of me really wants to do this, because I really want Gore instead of Hillis and best (I would still have Bradshaw, SJax and felix Jones at rb, and would prob. spin off Bradshaw for JC superstar or perhaps Benson). What do you think? I can’t have Austin disappearing on me every other week, and Boldin has no competition for targets.

    2 qb 3 flex league: I wanted to see if the moss owner would jump on favre. Think obtaining any are feasable? who would you want out of em all? Id say felix Jones. It will prob come down to the bottom of the heap though so who would you rather have – mcfadden or bush?

    Reggie Bush,
    Vernon Davis,
    Felix Jones,
    Dustin Keller,
    Darren McFadden

    Who do I start in my 2 quarterback league this week. Matt Cassel, Matt Hasselbeck, Alex Smith, or Ryan Fitzpatrick? I have Schaub on a bye.

  4. tourinnc says:

    Hey Doc, how can you tell who the competing teams are in each of the Fan Dual Leagues? Can you join all three leagues or would you prefer that we just join one? Thanks. Rich

  5. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Joel: I like the other side a little more, but you are right about Gore being the best piece. As long as it fits your team I could see doing it.

    @sal: I’d rather have McFadden. But Jones would be my first choice. VD if you are really hurting at TE.

    @tourinnc: I’m fine with people joining more than one league. As more people sign up they will show up. There just aren’t many people in the leagues yet.

    @MrHappyTime: Mama Cass and Hass.

  6. The Vaporizers says:

    Hey Doc, hope all is well.

    Dropped by for a quick question. Who do you like better the rest of the year in a PPR league? Danario Alexander or Brandon Tate?

  7. MrHappyTime says:
    (link)

    Who you like best out of Cass and Hass Doc? Thanks

  8. Wilsonian says:

    Danario or Meachem…0.5 PPR?

  9. Jason Maynard says:
    (link)

    Doc, not too be too granular, but, what can I expect to get in trade for Orton or Flacco at this point? Positionally and what “Tier” (1 or 2) type player? If you what to throw a name thats fine, its too specific, I know. Thanks bro!

  10. Sven says:
    (link)

    Lloyd and Brandon Jackson for Crabtree and Torain. Who wins?

  11. Pepe Silvia says:
    (link)

    which one of these guys do you like best for just this week?

    Mike Williams (Ari)
    Deon Butler (Ari)
    Breaston (@Sea)
    Crayton (NE)
    Buster Davis (NE)
    Manningham (@Dal)

    thanks as always!

  12. Fletch says:

    @Doc: which WR would you rather have in a dynasty: Garcon, Collie or Wallace?

  13. Commish Cauda says:
    (link)

    12-team, 0.5ppr, keeper league*

    *can keep one player that you didn’t keep the year before. free agents cost a 5th rounder in 2011.

    Please rank the following as free agent pick-ups with an eye toward the future:

    Mike Williams (SEA)
    Danario Alexander
    Patrick Crayton

    Thanks.

  14. Mr2Bits says:

    That stupid ass garbage CJ TD cost me a win this week(not that I deserve to win with half my team injured). I hope he tears his quad doing that crap in a future game. 4th quarter when they are up by 20 points with a minute to go no reason his gold teeth should have even been in the game.

    Guess Im just bitter as I’m on a 3 game losing slide and nobody on my freaking team is healing anytime soon.

  15. Black Beard says:

    In a 2TE non ppr…Scheffler bye week coming up.

    Better to drop Scheffler, Donald Brown or Tate for Watson?

  16. Pick two to fill in this week for Andre Johnson and D-Jax:

    Jabar Gaffney
    Patrick Crayton
    Robert Meachem
    Mike Williams
    Danario Alexander

    Talk about a downgrade. FML!!!

  17. sos says:

    I’m getting nervous that the Giants are about to come a full blown rbbc. Thinking of pairing Bradshaw and Harvin or Bowe for a stud. Please list in order of who I should target…MJD, Steven Jackson, Ray Rice, Megatron or hold tight?

    • Doc

      Doc says:
      (link)

      Rice, Sjax, MJD, Megatron

  18. Abo says:
    (link)

    I’ve been offered Roddy White for my Torain and Fitz. Do I accept?

  19. Matt P says:
    (link)

    MJD for Turner/Beanie?

    My other RBs are Gore, Best, Lynch, Greene. I’d be dropping CJ Spiller.

    Pull the trigger?

  20. Sos says:
    (link)

    Just was offered sjax for jc/bowe. Which side? And which side of bradshaw/bowe/harvin for sjax if bowe and harvin are bench depth? To much to give up?

    Definitely an interesting assortment of picks this week… gonna be boom or bust!

    I own Justin Forsett in a keeper auction league (non-PPR). With a budget of $200, he’s currently worth $5 for this season, and $7 for next season if kept. Is he worth holding on to? If I drop him, I will be doing so for Danny Woodhead, Keiland Williams, or Patrick Crayton. I may as well post my team…

    16 team, 6 pts all TD, return yards

    QB – Aaron Rodgers ($37)
    WR – Andre Johnson ($36)
    WR – Chad Ochocinco ($25)
    WR – Kenny Britt ($12)
    RB – Maurice Jones-Drew ($35)
    RB – Jamaal Charles ($16)
    TE – Brent Celek ($8)
    W/R – Justin Forsett ($5)
    Q/W/R/T – Tony Moeaki ($5) (yes, this is an any position flex)
    BEN – Michael Spurlock ($5)
    BEN – Tarvaris Jackson ($5)
    BEN – Donald Brown ($8)

    I currently have 4th waiver priority, and plan to use it this week. Here are the current requests I will be putting in.

    1. Spurlock for Danario Alexander
    2. Moeaki for Owen Daniels
    3. Forsett for Danny Woodhead (?)
    4. Jackson for Colt McCoy

    Other WW options: Williams, Crayton, Matt Moore, James Starks

    What do you recommend I do? Are my waiver claims and priority reasonable? Thanks for any advice.

  22. Shippity says:

    I also am interested in Garcon vs Collie (Fletch asked for dynasty purposes) but also just for this year. Thanks as always.

  23. cruisinkc says:
    (link)

    Rank these players going forward for the rest of the season…

    WR: Larry Fitzgerald, Roddy White, Wes Welker

    RB: Ryan Torain, Marshawn Lynch, Jonathan Stewart

  24. hacienda says:
    (link)

    What do you think about Beanie’s prospects going forward? I’ve been offered Maclin for Beanie straight up, and I’m considering it.

    This is my team in a 16-team PPR league where I’m languishing at 2-4:

    QB: Rodgers
    RB: Hillis, Best
    WR: Megatron, Nicks
    TE: Hernandez
    DEF: Chargers
    K: Crosby

    BN: Beanie, M.Bush, B.Jackson, Floyd, Shiancoe

  25. D.A. says:
    (link)

    I was offered Lynch for P. Thomas, sadly I’m considering it. Other RBs include Felix, Moreno, B-Jax & BGE.

    .5 ppr. Should I accept?

    I’m worried this injury is going to have him out till week 11. I’m currently 3-3 and in 6th. (12 team league)

    drop brett favre for stafford? i have jay cutler and stafford fits nicely into the matchups…….

  27. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @The Vaporizers: Alexander

    @MrHappyTime: Cassel

    @Jason Maynard: Orton should get you a RB/WR2, Flacco will give you a little less. Of course it all depends on needs.

    @Sven: Torain side

    @Pepe Silvia: Crayton

    @Fletch: Garcon

    @Commish Cauda: Danario, Williams, Crayton

    @Black Beard: Scheffler

    @Chicago Mike: Crayton/Meachem

    @Abo: I don’t like it

    @Matt P: I like it

    @Sos: I’d take SJax there, but would rather not give up JC so would lean toward the Bradshaw trade.

    @YaMaHa: I am on the fence with Woodhead. I like Forsett’s upside more, but Woodhead should see work in NE. In dynasty I’d lean Forsett.

    @Shippity: I like Garcon in non PPR, Collie in PPR

    @cruisinkc: White, Fitz, Torain, Welker, Lynch, Stewart

    @hacienda: I like Beanie, but Maclin has more value than that.

    @D.A.: That’s just too much.

  28. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @trick dad: I’d stick with Favre

  29. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    What are your thoughts on this trade offer:

    I get: Mega, Ryan, and either Forte or Bradshaw

    I give: either Wayne or Boldin, Rivers and either Moreno or DMC

    I still have Big Ben as my QB; my RBs currently are CJ, Hillis, Best, DMC, Moreno; my WRs currently are White, Wayne, Marshall, Boldin, Colston.

    Should I pursue this, and if so, which guys should I go after/give up?

    It’s a 0.5 PPR and we play 1 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 WR-RB flex.

  30. paulzone says:
    (link)

    i need to get 2 wr’s off the wire. dropping tate and x for either crayton, williams or meachem so need to drop someone else for another wr.

    Who else goes? keller or cutler or holmes?

    qb – rivers, cutler
    rb – bradshaw, moreno, matthew, pierre
    wr – aj (bye), wayne (bye), ward, holmes (bye)
    te – gonzo, keller (bye)

  31. Joel says:
    (link)

    Hey Doc, 2 Q’s: 1) rest of season: Hines Ward or Garcon, non-ppr? 2) which would you prefer as your base defense, SD or CINN?

  32. friar says:
    (link)

    Doc, I need some help in my 10-team 0.5 PPR league. My team’s in a bit of a bind this week with Andre Johnson, Addai, and the Jets D all on bye. I’m carrying three QBs (Ben, Flacco, and Vick) and, though I’m trying to trade one of them, haven’t yet managed to do so. These factors combine to make my bench very short. I’ll fill AJ’s spot this week with Bowe (against the Jags), and Addai’s spot with Torain, but this leaves me with two choices still.

    1) Should I play Britt or Green-Ellis at flex this week?

    2) Who should I drop in order to claim a defense (ideally Seattle, otherwise Tennessee) off waivers: Vick, Flacco, Reggie Bush, BGE, Britt, or the Jets D?

  33. Shippity says:
    (link)

    For weeks 14-16, would you rather have Garcon, Steve Smith(CAR), Sid Rice, or even VJax

  34. Rookie Season says:
    (link)

    Pick 2 RBs out of the 3 to start:
    Brandon Jacobs @Dal
    Chris Ivory v. Cle
    Knowshon Moreno v. Oak

    Jacobs has been leaching TDs nicely. Ivory looks like a good bet. Would you start a half-healthy Moreno vs a poor rush Oak Def? Over Jacobs vs an avg. rush Dal Def? Thanks!

  35. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Wilsonian: I don’t like it at all

    @paulzone: I’d drop Tate and Keller for Crayton/Meachem

    @Joel: I like Garcon in non-ppr and SD

    @friar: Green-Ellis and Bush

    @Shippity: VJax

    @Rookie Season: If Pierre is out, Ivory and Moreno

  36. paulzone says:
    (link)

    @Doc: that is exactly what waivered out, but who do you like just for this week:

    meachem, alexander or avant

    thanks!

  37. MJD Took A Knee says:
    (link)

    At WR I have Colston and picked up Alexander but that might be a bit scary for this week. Do I pick up Meachem and start 2 NO WRs or pick up Crayton/Avant. I would be dropping Alexander.

    NonPPR

  38. MJD Took A Knee says:
    (link)

    Denver or KC this week. I am not sure about the starting QBs. It is looking like Boller & Bouman. Wow. I have DEN who might also not have to face McFadden.

  39. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @paulzone: I like Avant’s situation, but I’m leaning Meachem

    @MJD Took A Knee: I could see going with Crayton for this week.

    @MJD Took A Knee: Yeah, I like both. If Bouman goes I like KC more.

  40. MJD Took A Knee says:
    (link)

    Thanks. It has to be KC. Doesn’t look good for JAC QBs.
