It’s fantasy POSTSEASON, y’all! Here’s to ensuring your playoff run continues into next week and the week thereafter and beyond, until you’re a 2023 fantasy football champion. Either that, or you’re competing to avoid the toilet bowel, last place and effectively being forced into having the league winner’s grandmother’s likeness tattooed onto your right buttcheek. Or your left. Or both. Or maybe you have to play frogger in four-lane traffic for an hour. I have no way of knowing how sick in the head your leaguemates are. All I can do is help you from becoming Main Street roadkill or having Grandma Elsa’s face stenciled onto your backside.
So let’s get to it and fire up those decisions. This week, we’ll touch on Justin Fields, D’Andre Swift, James Cook, Calvin Ridley and more. But if you don’t see your player of interest, hit me up in the comments. Week 15 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?

There isn’t much I have to say about last week’s slate of football games. I drank a lot of beer, ate a surplus of food, repeatedly swung a hammer at a stump, and dozed frequently enough for the entire experience to be a blur. Monday morning of this week was what I imagine seeing the light for the first time to be like. But as the week has gone on, the Thanksgiving hangover has worn off and now the month of December is officially upon us.
Six weeks of regular-season football remain. Unfortunately for my dear friend, New Jersey Nicholas, life as a Buffalo Bills fan has only worsened since the time of my last post. Now, we enter into a pivotal period for Nicholas and Bills mafia, as well as for all fantasy owners far and wide. It’s nearly playoff season. Things are heating up. Is this the time to make a gutsy call, or play it safe Week 13 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Come here, come all. I have a tale I would like to share with you. I have a dear, dear friend named Nicholas who is a Buffalo Bills fan, and currently lives in a furious state of ceaseless agony. Not because he’s from New Jersey, no. But because he now watches all Bills games alone at home, in the dark, covered in a thick, wool blanket while clutching a sofa cushion desperately across his breast. “I’m in a bad place right now,” he says to me more than on occasion. And unfortunately, matters have only worsened since we last encountered, dear Razzballers. Alas, my dear friend finds himself in the midst of a full-on frenzy, which has only clouded his ability to adequately manage his fantasy roster. In Week 10, he inadvertently left Tee Higgins at Flex in the heat of a ruthless playoff race. It’s mid-November. We’ve reached that point where frustrations, or even concentrations, may be coming to a boiling point, either in regard to your NFL team or your fantasy roster. If you’re 2-8, chances are your playoff hopes are over. But please, please, do not be a New Jersey Nicholas. Do not allow your desperation as a fan to impact your attention-to-detail as an owner. And with a little bit of extra analysis from this week’s column, you could be sitting purdy (which I reccomend in the column) on Sunday. Week 11 start vs. sit begins right now.

An aerospace engineer in Minneapolis, a fallen franchise signal-caller in Phoenix, and a young acronym finding stride in Seattle find themselves in the spotlight of our start vs. sit column this week. Luckily for the former, he has a sturdy career to fall back on if things go south in the cold tundra of America. The same can’t be said for me. If this gig doesn’t work out, my only fallback is an open invitation extending back to 1996 to join the Chuck-E-Cheese band. And let me tell you, if you haven’t seen Five Nights at Freddy’s yet, the prospects of that endeavor are not enticing to me. But what about our beloved aerospace engineer and his friends? We’ll take a look at the fates of Joshua Dobbs, Kyler Murray, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba, as well as some unique calls at tight end. Week 10 start vs. sit begins right now.

Our trek through November football begins with the arrival of Week 9. Join me, dear Razzballers, on the lovely Mayflower as we voyage across the ocean in search of greener pastures and kinder kings. Perhaps if your season hasn’t gone as planned, you instead find yourself sailing behind us in the Nina, Pinta, or Santa Maria as you chase your fellow league-mates for playoff spots. And if the season has truly been a disaster, you may have already died of scurvy, pneumonia, or tuberculosis before we left the port. Indeed, the campaign’s midpoint is looming, and the decisions that lie ahead could be the ones that make or break your pursuit of a championship. This week, we’ll touch on 10 players in particular including bold opinions on Derek Carr, Emari Demercado, and DK Metcalf. Week 9 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Come here, Georgie! That should be you, doing your best Pennywise impression to lure George Pickens onto your roster and into your lineups as we Trick-or-Treat our way into Halloweekend and Week 8 of the NFL fantasy football season. You can watch as Georgie trudges down the flooded street to your sewage drain in his drenched Steelers raincoat. One piece of advice: if you want Georgie to perform this week, don’t bite off either of his arms before hauling him into your fantasy lair. Now that he’s in your grasp, we already know Pickens is on the plus-end of start vs. sit this week – but what about Dak Prescott, Joe Burrow, Chuba Hubbard, Calvin Ridley, Dalton Kincaid and more? Week 8 start vs. sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
The NFL season is flying by. We’re already at Week 7! We have a great slate of games with a lot of value to be had. Last week was not great, but let’s bounce back and make some money this week. Here are my favorite bets for Week 7 of the NFL season! Want more […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 3. Two down, 16 to go. With multiple games now in the books, we can finally begin dissecting trends as they emerge across the league. For starters, one trend that I’ve noticed is more and more male youths wearing tiny shorts to show off their thigh muscles. Another is the rapid rise of the streaming of Suits on Netflix. What does this have to do with fantasy football? Well, every NFL player has large thigh muscles and regularly wears a suit (probably). But not all players with large thigh muscles who wear suits are created equally. Some are better at football than others, and some are better equipped to help your Week 3 fantasy lineup, such as Russell Wilson and Gabe Davis. Who else? I’ll break that down and more in this week’s start vs. sit. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, that was a doozy. The Aaron Rodgers-Jets Experiment lasted about as long as my underground rapping career. Last night, the Minnesota Vikings were about as good at possessing the football as Antonio Cromartie is at possessing contraceptives. And the Cowboys looked about as dominant in Week 1 as ever while Daniel Jones played the part of Benjamin Button at his first birthday party. We unpacked all of that, turned the page, and now we stand before Week 2. One game is in the books, leaving you to either celebrate your bold decision to roll out D’Andre Swift or scream out in agony as you watched him post 25-plus fantasy points on the bench. Although it’s too late to assist you with that decision, here’s my Week 2 insight as you go about making your start vs. sit calls. If I don’t hit on the player you’re looking for this week, hit me up in the comments section and we can discuss it at length. Please, blog, may I have some more?
To start, or to sit? That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageously bad fantasy decisions, or to take arms against a sea of injury woes and clouded matchups, and by further educating oneself, end them. To lose—to writhe in anger, no more. Indeed, that is the question. To start Anthony Richardson in his NFL debut, or have him ride the pine. Do you roll with Breece Hall at home against Buffalo in Week 1, or wait and see how the Jets backfield shakes out? To start, or to sit. To sit, or to start. In some aspects of life, it is essential to sit before you start. Such is the case with the words before you. Take a seat, fire up that roster, and start reading. Week 1 start vs. sit begins now.

Let’s f’n go!!! It’s playoff time in the land of fantasy football, and I couldn’t be more pumped. Some quick pointers straight off the top: This is a major research week in terms of streaming tight ends and defenses. It’s been a ridiculously bad season for tight ends – unless you have Travis Kelce, Mark […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
