Hey, did you know Basketball is a thing? IT IS! And we have RCL’s for that too! Go over there and win some prizes for me. And if not for me, then for you. And if not for you, then back to me. Do it for me.

As the title states, there are only 11 teams left with perfect records now that we’ve reached Week 7 of our Commentator Leagues. And while these teams obviously have skillful owners, you’d have to think a lot of luck is involved here. Andrew Luck that is. With over 400 teams competing, the top-10 (or 2.5 percent) seems like a large mountain to climb, but fear not. There are still 10 games to go. And if there’s anything that football has taught us, it’s be sure to check all female breasts you can during the month of October. For science. Be a hero. Well, that, and also make sure to never watch video tapes, so you can claim something never happened. In addition, don’t be a Rams or Bucs fan. Okay… so football has taught us a lot of things. But the most important lesson is, anything can happen. Even if you started 3-3, 2-4, and even 1-5, there’s always an outside chance to inch your way into the play-offs and make a run at it. Want to make a crazy trade? Why not? Want to stream in Mike Glennon? Whoa whoa bro, let’s not get that crazy… Remember, there’s still a lot at stake here, with several fantastic prizes up for grabs, so follow me after the jump to see how the RCL Universe stands…

 

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.)

I’m not totally convinced that Beats by Ray are actually in first place because I don’t have the video that proves it, but I have already arranged for the rest of the teams in that league to apologize for their part in it. And it seems fitting that Pretty Pink Ponies and Sexual Chocolate are right next to each other, because when I think of pretty pink ponies, Randy Watson and Sexual Chocolate are certainly my very next thought. Because that’s how I roll.

The RCL Round-Up

Some interesting tidbits thus far…

SheHateme from the Jennifer — Razzball 2 league, and Garçon means boy, from the Jennifer — Razzball league (coincidence? I THINK NOT. MAYBE.) lead’s the RCL Universe in transactions with 37. To give context, the average amount of roster moves this season thus far has been around 8.

– Some of you might wonder how we assign points to generate the overall standings. Rudy actually uses dark wizardry and algebra to make it happen. But on a numbers level, we use something called “League Index”.

Here’s the science behind it:

The League Competitive Index is calculated as:  Sum of Fantasy Points For Each Team in League /  Average Fantasy Points Scored Across All Leagues * 100.  So if the average league has scored 5,000 points and League A has 5,100 points, League A’s competitive index is 102 (5100/5000*100).  Each team in that league will have the sum of their Wins + Ties + Fantasy Points Scored + Playoff Wins multiplied by 1.02 (102/100).  In 2012-2013, the League Indexed ranged from 97-103 so this is a generally minor adjustment.

If you didn’t faint (like I did when I first read it… and the second and, you know, the third and fourth time), you should know that the “toughest” leagues so far have been Take on SethDaSportsMan (103.4) and the Razzball The Football League (102.5).

As stated above. Beats by Ray leads the RCL Universe overall, but also leads in Points Scored with 851 (141.8 per game.) This seems as obvious, as the more points you have, the more wins you have. So simple, I can grasp much of the concept. So my heart goes out to the Fevered Voorhees, who has the fourth overall lead in points with 817, but only has a 3-3 record, good for 152nd in the overall standings.

 

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. 

RCLWLw6

J-FOH, that’s the basement man. You want the lobby. No, that button. The one that has “L” on it. STOP HITTING P1! Seriously bro. And it looks like Tehol is right behind me, and may, in fact, be in my butt. Strange, I don’t really feel anything…

    so im still neogtiating with our broncos fan from yesterday – 0.5 ppr
    he proposed:
    would you send DT Storm Colston for AJ Green, Gordon, Vernon Davis?

    my team
    WR: Dez, DT, Keenan, Kelvin, Colston, Randle
    RB: Lamar Jennings Bradshaw Joqiue, Storm
    TE: Heath (Wright and ASJ on waivers)
    Accept or counter with Randle?

      Jay says:

      @Zandy: Yeah, I think it’s still an okay deal for you, but he keeps moving the goal post closer to him. Frustrating, I imagine.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yup annoying when u discuss things and he says – that sounds good propose it to me and ill confirm — and then counters with a tweek. this is the end! haha thanks man

          @Zandy: Any time Zandy!

    Who to start pick 2 WR and anyone for the flex WR Percy Harvin, Kelvin Benjamin, TY Hilton, Roddy White, Michael Crabtree, Malcom Floyd RB Fred Jackson (Doug Martin on bye)

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Dom B: Benjamin, Hilton, I think I answered this earlier, but make sure to double check my rankings tomorrow.

  3. “If there’s anything that football has taught us, it’s be sure to check all female breasts you can during the month of October. For science. Be a hero.” I can’t share this statement enough times on the internet to do it due justice.

    Looks like you guys have a bruising writers league. It’s like the NFC North of ol’ up in there with points scoring by the top half all knocking each other off. I’m almost to the top 10 of points for in the RCL, yet 4-2. Sympathies to Voorhees.

    So, have an interesting situation I’m weighing. Picked up Brady off the wire cause what the hell was he doing there, and traded to bring in Gronk to cover Graham (science, can you imagine having them both healthy on a full point PPR team? One day…). My RBs are Vereen, Bradshaw, Hillman, and Sankey. With my Flex covered by Floyd, and one slot at RB with Bradshaw, that last RB spot is a tricky one. Plug Vereen in a bad-weather matchup favoring the run against a more than decent Jets front 7 with Ridley out, or Hillman against an even more stifling 9ers? I lean Hillman after last week, but I’m almost to flipping a coin in my mind. Thoughts?

    Also with this bad weather matchup is my other Masshole Brady. Considering starting him over Matty Ice for this week, but the weather and ankle obviously are concerning. More thoughts?

    Love the articles from all y’all, keep em coming.

      @Slob on my Cobb: Yeah, it’s a tough league. Either we are all amazing fantasy players or we all suck. Tough to say which one.

      Double check my rankings tomorrow, but I might still go Vereen there. I could see the reasoning on Ryan, he’s not that good on the road. I’ll probably make my decision tomorrow, but I’m leaning Ryan still right now. And thanks!

  4. Chicken Dinner says:

    Wallace for Graham?

    PPR

    My WRs
    Jordy/Floyd(AZ)/Cooks/DAdams/Wallace

    My TEs
    Reed/Clay

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: that’s mike wallace at MIA? are you serious? (both on opp giving up graham for that and you having to ask), why not try throwing in clay to see if he’ll give you back bench RB.

  5. friar says:
    (link)

    I’m trying to sell high on TY for a RB (I’m somehow 5-1, but don’t like relying on Lacy/Stacy going forward). What tier of RBs should I aim for?

    Also, I tried offering TY for Ellington, and received the counter of Ellington for Julio. I think that’s a bit steep, but what do you think?

    12-team, 0.5 ppr (2RB, 2WR, flex)
    RB: Lacy, Stacy, Crowell
    WR: Julio, TY, Michael Floyd, Randle, Holmes, Beckham, Adams

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @friar: It’s steep. I might try to go for Alfred Morris. If not, maybe dangle a Stacy and Beckham out there for Mathews.

      • friar says:
        (link)

        @Jay: The owner who asked for Julio also has Charles and Gio. Would you offer Julio for either of those two?

        Also, thinking about Hilton trade targets, how would you rank Morris, Miller, Tate, and FJax ROS (0.5 ppr)? Thanks!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @friar: I would for Charles, yes. I have Tate slightly over Miller, but the rest is in order.

          • friar says:
            (link)

            @Jay: How far down that list (Morris, Tate, Miller, FJax) would you consider going before you’d prefer just holding TY Hilton?

            Thanks so much for all the advice!

  6. Tool says:

    10 man league, half PPR, small rosters (14). The following were just dropped. Are any or all worth going after?

  7. Don says:

    Jay,

    ROS u like watkins or fitzgerald better? Trying to send j.hill and a j.hunter for either of those to gio owner. What r your thoughts?

      @Don: Probably Fitz. But it’s real close for me.

  8. Foles Metal Jacket says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    Would you trade Cobb and Kelce for AJ Green? I have Jordan Reed to fill in at TE. Tried to give him Cobb and Reed, but he won’t do it unless it’s Kelce.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @J-FOH: I don’t know, maybe you’re doing it on purpose.

      And noted! I’ll let Rudy know, thanks!

      • J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @Jay: worst draft of the yer for me. In the words of Tehol, the elder gods have shamed me to the bowels of Sargon’s taint

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @J-FOH: Probably wasn’t my best draft either. Next season, for the WL, I’m just going to draft all Chargers just to see what happens.

          • J-FOH says:
            (link)

            @Jay: I’m going for a complete detachment t any team. Keep me as objective as possible. I’m pretty much there

  9. PooPoo Platter says:

    Big Ben or Cousins this week? Also Cooks or Fred Jackson in the flex? (PPR)

    Thanks!

      @Rob: Also, make sure the league is set to “publicly” viewable. The commish can change that in the settings.

    so this AJ/Gordon owner is giving me too much of a headache
    now says he only will do DT Kelvin for AJ Gordon VD – I think thats a pass (but lemme know if you disagree)

    Whats JT’s value? Would you send Bradshaw and Kelvin for him?

    Id have Dez DT Keenan Randle Colston and JT would replace Heath

    Any reason to send DTorDez Bradshaw Joique for JT Lacy Harvin ? I assume lacy is too much of a concern

    I have Jennings Lamar Bradshaw Joqiue and Storm (who will prob be Mason once Im done trying to trade him)

    Thanks buddy!!!

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: or i can pickup rudolph and stash him over storm and stop looking at crappy te’s

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: SCRATCH the Kelvin part – he just sent me
      my DT Randle Storm for his AJ Gordon VD….
      Do we do this and then can drop Heath for Mason — or should I insist on Colston over Randle?

      thanks for all your help!!!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: The, the goal post keeps moving. I’d just back off at this point. But I’m fine with the JT trade. I would hold on that third one though.

  14. Zandy says:

    separately in my std league

    I have 4 studs at WR in Brown, Jordy, Benjamin and Sanders. I’m hurting at RB and just claimed Crowell off waivers, somebody offered me Ben Tate for Sanders should I take that trade and have the Starting RB in Cleaveland? (PPR LEAGUE)

    My RBs are
    Mccoy
    Vereen
    Sankey

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Vin Sully 1988: Yeah, it’s a fair trade, and you could probably use Tate over Vereen there.

  16. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Now looking back was that me sending Ben Tate for kelvin Benjamin a bad trade??????
