Your body hurts and your lungs sting with every breath of freezing air. I know that many days you regret this adventure. Like that one time you benched DJ Chark, or when you blew the top waiver priority on Wayne Gallman. It can get bleak on the mountain, I won’t lie about that.

There is excitement in the challenge, however. Even if you’re winless and feel like you’ve lost your way, don’t give up. I am old enough to have seen 0-5 teams advance to a championship. Each week a new puzzle presents itself, and we just need to solve one at a time.

We are now at the quarter-mark of the NFL season, believe it or not! We’re now starting to get a better feel for who we should be starting and sitting on a week-to-week basis, and which matchups are actually ones to target, rather than matchups that look good because of a small sample size.

There are some very interesting matchups on deck for Week 5, so let’s talk about some.

Of course Ronald Jones II is not rushing for 2,000 yards this season…but could he next season? Magic Eight Ball says ‘Not bloody likely’ (I have the British version). That’s a lot to put on a guy who looked like hot garbage (which smells way worse than cold garbage, hence its greater usage?) his rookie season, and now that he’s had 3 out 4 productive games this season, anything is possible. He’s the top add this week.

RJ2K would be based on CJ2K, or Chris Johnson 2,000 yards rushing, which seems like it happened a lifetime ago but was really only ten years ago. Furthermore, CJ2K was such a lazy nickname. Nothing is lamer than easy nicknames, like ARod and any variation on it. As sport consumers we should all demand better nicknames.

B_Don returns for Vegas, at least physically, for this week’s waiver wire show. Donkey Teeth toughs it out with a possible broken finger from a freak ceiling fan accident. The injuries are starting to mount on the Razzball Fantasy Football Podcast!

Both Donkey and B_Don have Ronald Jones as their top waiver adds for the week. Other players recommended on the show include Marquez Valdez-Scantling, Geronimo Allison, Golden Tate, A.J. Brown, Corey Davis, Phillip Dorsett and many more. Tune in for the guys’ waiver rankings and dominate your wire!

We’re approaching the quarter pole of the fantasy regular season and the elements are showing their teeth. Those of you that started 1-2/0-3 are approaching Dead Man’s Pass were a loss can completely throw you into a tailspin. The ice is slick, the days are long and the food is low. If you are thriving on the trail, then now is the time to take some chances and separate yourself. Let’s forage for those scarce nutrients and press on.  

Each week, I will list intriguing players owned in no more than 30% of leagues per ESPN. For a primer on additional roster management and waiver wire principals read this. At the end I will also point out some players that can be safely dropped for a better option.

Last night was the yearly tradition of the two teams that nobody wants to see on Thursday night play against one another on Thursday night. The location? One of the premier hard drug abuse cities of the United States! Maybe I’ll just watch the Tulane and Houston game that Pat McAfee is announcing. Wait a minute.. that guy in the headband.. with the mustache. Is that Grey Albright? Now that baseball season is coming to a close it would make sense that Grey would finesse himself onto the Jaguars.

But it’s not Grey. It’s the man who is here to save the NFL. The man who works out in the locker room with nothing but a headband and a jock strap. And the man who’s going to make Nick Foles the two-time highest paid back up in the NFL. It’s Gardner Minshew.

After a wild Week 1, while some fantasy owners are panicking and making season-long adjustments after only one week, this is a time where we’ll see a bunch of players bounce-back and reward the calmer owners across multiple leagues.

There are some very interesting matchups to exploit this week, so let’s break down a few.

The week 2 slate is my favorite of every season. It offers the best chance for sharp minds to jump on bounce backs players and teams. The public often overvalues a single game sample. Using data to attack these angles involves looking back at 2018, evaluating changes to personnel/coaches, and combining those facts with the week 1 data we have available.

Rudy Gamble is back on the Razzball Fantasy Football Pod this week to discuss some of the big surprises from week one, including John Ross’s explosion, Lamar Jackson’s trouncing of the hapless Dolphins, and the poop flavor cake Baker served up against the Titans. Rudy also explains the weekly method of dialing in his projections and why you should put more weight in his numbers later in the week.
