Don’t be sad that the fantasy football season is over; be glad it happened in the first place. If you are one of the many football enthusiasts who play dynasty-format fantasy football, however, you know the season never truly ends. Between Week 17 and the beginning of training camp, we are in the trenches, following […]

What are air yards, you say? The name kind of gives it away, doesn’t it? Air yards, irreverently discussed in this air yards primer, matter because we actually get some context of how much a quarterback WANTED to get their receiver the ball, not just how often the receiver could catch it. It’s a stat that […]

After three consecutive days of gluttonous eating and drinking – yes, my family even does Christmas Eve-Eve – I’m sitting down at 11:41 p.m. EST to bring you my weekly target report. Some might call that dedication. I don’t care if it’s 11:40 at night, 1 in the morning or even freakin’ 4 in the […]

Everybody having leftovers of that Thanksgiving turphucken? You know, that duck stuffed inside a chicken stuffed inside a pheasant stuffed inside a turkey? Is it even possible to cook something like that without introducing massive listeria problems? How about I just write the inevitable outcome of Thanksgiving football: Kirk Cousins and Justin Jefferson are gonna run real hard next week because they’ve got food poisoning and need to get off the field. But for the rest of us who ate our feasts the way Yahweh intended — in the form of a takeout burrito bowl and gas station beer — we’re ready to keep chugging and plugging in players on our rosters. 

Oh, speaking of plugging and chugging [dramatic pause for effect], Coolwhip and I are vying to make the cutline in the RazzBowl. I had this really DFS-brain idea that I would start Damien Harris to make myself different from the field. And I’m sure gonna look different after those 16-yards Harris ripped off before leaving the game on crutches and being so hurt that he couldn’t wear his pants. Me too after Thanksgiving, Damien, me too. Let me know if you’re rooting for me or Coolwhip down in the comments. 

And a quick “change of programming” note — I’ll be doing the weekly injury report as my only article each week to finish out the season. “The season” is also somewhat flexible — sometime in the next month, let’s say. You’re always free to revisit my articles and ask questions in the comments. Between my various Razzball duties, I’ve skipped only 3 deadlines across 3 sports in the past 3 years (333…I’m half-bestial!), and I need some time to take a break. Please support any of the writers who step in during my winter hibernation and feed them apples and fish heads to show your support.

Week 11 was strange in the NFL. It started on Thursday night with the Titans planting a flag at Lambeau Field after a convincing win versus the Packers. On Sunday, the Eagles needed a comeback versus a stingy Colts defense; the Patriots won a game where the only TD was scored by a punt return […]

Week 10 provided us with a receiving performance for the record books. For the first time in NFL history, we saw a rookie WR catch his first three TDs in the same game. Coming into Week 10, Christian Watson received a total of 14 targets, converting 10 of those for 88 yards. With Romeo Doubs […]

I’ve been a Vikings fan for a near-intolerable three decades of my life. I’m pretty critical of Kirk Cousins, which is justified and a taek that everybody likes to hear week in and week out, right? The 2022 NFL season gave us several of the worst games in recent and distant memory, but Bills/Vikings games lit up the internet with one of the most dramatic final 2 minutes of regulation followed by a dramatic end zone interception to finish the game in the Vikings’ favor. If only every quarter could be the fourth quarter. 

Maybe one day your team will be as cardiac-stopping as mine. Let’s see what else happened for week 10 of 2022 fantasy football.

Bold predictions can be far-reaching and highly unlikely. However, I tend to lean on the 30% likelihood these scenarios could actually happen. They seem bold now, but every season we witness situations and players that outperformed (or underperform) their expectations and sometimes by a wide margin. I wouldn’t run to Vegas and place bets on […]
