And by we, I mean Rudy. There were apparently some issues with Yahoo (surprise!), and I’m sure you, the readers who are competing against each other in this year’s Razzball Commentator Leagues, have suffered greatly not knowing what’s going on in our little universe of fantasy football. I’m not quite sure how Rudy’s dark wizardry works, but from what I can gather, there was a problem reversing polarity on the duadnem colliflex inter-valve dilithium imbalance, causing the gravimetric continuum reciprocating-phase matrix to miss-align. AND THAT’S THE WORST BRO. Why? What a silly question. You know as well as I do that the tetryon matrix can’t take that kind of punishment. Too much alternating variance in the asymmetrical interface nutation, NAW WHAT I’M SAYIN’ DAWG? Word. Regardless, the issues have been resolved, and you can rest easy now, knowing that we have the 2014 RCL Master Standings ready to be presented to you. So follow me after the jump to figure out what’s going on in the RCL universe in the fourth week, for the first time. Or the first week in the fourth time. Time the week for the time on the fourth? Uhh. Right.

 

The RCL Top 10

Why the top-10? Because they’re the top-10 teams out of 400+? And that’s pretty amazing? I’m Ron Burgundy? Simply put, they’re the best of the best of the best, and I think they deserve a little bit recognition. BUT NOT TOO MUCH. Just a taste.

The 2014 Razzball Commenter League Master Standings (Click on it. Seriously. Do it. Do it.)

So apparently the RCL Cracklin’ Brats has not one, but two teams in control of the standings. If this was a car ride, Hubber Guard is driving, McClaine’s Cigarettes called shotgun, and it’s not actually a car they’re in, but probably a train. To be honest, even that’s hard to believe, since I’m not sure trains can carry 400+ people. Maybe if they add extra passenger cars? Do we have train guy around here? Choo choo? Train guy just got a hard on when I said that. CHOO CHOO! (duck).

 

The RCL Round-Up

w41

So, I suppose the league that has the top two teams should get a spotlight this week, especially seeing as how I just mentioned trains in a sexual fashion, and we’re all better for it. That’s not really a reason to talk about this league, but the point needed to be established. Hubber Guard should get mad props here for being able to go 3-0 while drafting Adrian Peterson and Julius Thomas. Having Matthew Stafford and Week 3 Jeremy Maclin certainly helped, but I doubt you’ll see many 3-0 teams with the AP-JT combo. I just made that up. Sounds droidish. I should note though, with Pierre Garçon acting very French last night, the team may take a step back come next week’s standings update.

OVER THE HILL (are we really supposed to shout it every time? Is that why you capped it? What about every other time? Let’s find a middle ground.) is 0-3, but it’s not a necessarily bad team. With the likes of DeSean Jackson, Randall Cobb, Marques Colston, LeSean McCoy, and Martellus Bennett, you’d figure one win was possible. But don’t worry, by owning Tony Romo, you’ll rally enough wins to reach a chance at the playoffs with one game to go, and then Romo will throw 3 interceptions to drag your team out of any shot for the championship. So you’ve got that going for you.

 

The RCL Writers League

You can pick your nose. You can pick your friends. But you can’t pick your friends nose. That is the basis of which this league has been created. The cast: Sky, Tehol (something-something-#Eldergods), Jennifer, Smokey, Kevin, Andrew, Matt, Nick the Podcast Radio Host, Seth, Ralph, J-FOH, and, of course, me. 

w4rclwstandings

I’ll let the writers do their circlejerk below, but I want to note that J-FOH, bro, you be chugging that haterade son. Take a breath. So what if Larry Donnell was on your bench? He was only worth, if I did the math right, like 18 wins this week. You’re fine.

And speaking of Donnell, he was part of two trades this week that Seth pulled the trigger on. He received Golden Tate and LeSean McCoy from Mr. Chugging Haterade himself, J-FOH, in return for Julian Edelman, Larry Donnell, and Montee Ball. Because of the RCL Universe settings, the veto period (as we can all hope to play with the best league mates in the world, but just in case, we need a safety mechanism to prevent abusing the system) ran through today, so technically J-FOH wasn’t even allowed to start Donnell. And while that was out of his control, it doesn’t make the situation any less tragic and hilarious at the same time.

The other trade was sending Keenan Allen and Doug Martin to some guy named Jay for Michael Floyd and Chris Ivory. Jay getting a Chargers player? WAT? I think both Floyd and Allen are a wash right now, but I like Allen to bounce back a bit more, and Martin vs. Ivory is a classic risky high ceiling vs. stable producer with a ceiling. Pretty even trade in my opinion, but time will be the ultimate judge. And The Rolling Stones told me Time Is On My Side, so yeah, advantage me. No bias here bro.

    really hilarious situation. I sat laughing at my TV all night while he scored three TD’s and I couldn’t help but keep laughing and laughing until I hit my pillow and laughed myself to sleep. I also laughed when i saw that I scored more points than a 2-1 team. So much laughter going in here that I can’t stop writing laughter over and over and over on the walls of my bedroom.

      @J-FOH: Well, you’re also winning the trade right now. So there’s that, I guess.

      • J-FOH says:

        @Jay: that’s a consolation I hope to feel next week and beyond. I have to win this week or I’m done. My Twitter league with ralph, tehol and smokey will make an interesting read. The of the people from the nashville tour/ video spot are in it.

          @J-FOH: My Writer’s League team is the classic solid 0-3 team crushed by the schedule. I’m in the top half of the league in points scored but my opponents have been lighting it up.

    Hey Jay, is it possible there is a league or two missing from the Master Standings?
    I joined one of Tehol’s leagues called “Choking Tehol’s Chicken” (lovely name…) and it does not appear to be there.

      @J-MoneyIV: It is very possible, I’ll ping Rudy on it.

            @J-FOH: Two separate things. If the league is set to private, we can’t grab information from it. If I have a link, there’s no issue putting it on Google sheets.

    if A Foster is a no go on Sunday would you play A Blue. Khiry Robinson, or Toby G

    Also say Arian does play, would you start Khiry Robinson or Toby G over Asiata?

    Full PPR

    thanks boss

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @mcBlunty: Robinson in both cases.

    .5PPR – which side you like in each of these trades?

    1) Megatron and Cruz or Demaryius and Jordy
    2) Megatron and Crabtree or Demaryius and Jordy

    Thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ron: Megatrons side in both cases. It’s not close.

      • Ron says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Jay I have checked with your fellow site mates and they ALL said take the Demaryius/Jordy side over the Megatron/Cruz side.

        I have trusted you to get me this far so…what are you seeing that they may not being seeing?

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Ron: I probably like Cruz more than them.

  7. Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
    (link)

    anybody know if there is a setting in Yahoo to have instead of a win or loss each week, your record is actually indicative of how good your team really is, by playing against the other 11 teams each week? I’ve yet to comish a football league in yahoo, but next year want to have multiple leagues like this for all season games. I just beat a guy who had 2nd highest pts for the week, he got completely screwed by scheduling luck, and i’m trying to get rid of it for next year. Of course, i could just count this up myself (wouldn’t take that long), but it would be easier if site did it. In playoffs it would still be 1 vs 1 record.

  8. SMLV1 says:
    (link)

    My Team –

    QB – Rodgers
    WRs – Cobb, Edelman, T. Williams, Hunter and J. Gordon (OUT)
    RBs – Lacy, Bell, Spiller, Sproles and Bradshaw
    TE – V. Davis
    K – Hauschka (BYE) Bailey (Picked up due to Hauschka BYE)
    DEF – Stream (Currently Detroit)

    I want to pick up Kelce in case Venon Davis cant go Sunday….Who is the drop? Im thinking Hunter and then next week I can drop Bailey and Kelce for 1 or 2 WRs.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @SMLV1: It’s fine, but I’m personally dropping the kicker.

    Who do you like more ROS in non-PPR? Looking for upside as they will be spending time on my bench!

    Who do you keep 10 team league 1 rb 2 wr 1 rb/wr 1 te

    Need to cut one to free up roster space hunter rd 10 Ladarius green rd 15 all players values are in next years draft.

    I already have Nelson rd 4 Harvin rd 11 Gordon rd 12 Crabtree rd 19 Cameron rd 6.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brett: Probably Cameron at this point.

  11. vinodole says:
    (link)

    10 team league so not super deep but someone just dropped Harvin which seems really silly. It was such a random time of the week that I’m in a tough spot… He’ll clear waivers Monday so I can put a claim on him only by conditionally dropping my only player on bye this week, Josh Gordon.

    God damnit,

    I mean I know I should do it, and I still might get Gordon back off waivers, but it’s just annoying. I mean I guess it’s a good thing, potentially getting a top 20 WR for free… I have to do this right? For what it’s worth I’m already pretty deep at WR so I don’t really need Harvin.

    WR: Jordy, Roddy, Cordarelle, Wayne
    RB: Lacy, Joique, P Thomas, Bradshaw

    So my flex is already log jammed… but I feel like I have to take the best player, but I’m a little torn about letting go of maybe a top 10 overall player come fantasy playoffs…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @vinodole: you don’t need him, but you still have to. I might actually drop Thomas here.

      • vinodole says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Ya, I could see that, but the problem is the waiver thing. Assuming there’s at least one savvy owner willing to put a waiver on him now, he’l become available monday morning. Due to my league settings I can’t drop anyone who is playing this weekend, which is my entire team except Gordon.

        So, it has to be Gordon. I can already see Josh Gordon Josh Gordoning all over my team in the playoffs. The Fantasy Gods can be so cruel!!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @vinodole: Yeah, then just hold and let someone else take care of it then. Gordon is a fun lottery ticket to have.
