I’m back, Razzball Nation! I need to begin by thoroughly apologizing for my absence last week. As I was making my way to the computer to submit last week’s start vs. sit, I tripped on an empty can of Chef Boyardee lying on the floor and went sprawling across the room, inadvertently ripping the PC power cord out of the wall and straining my left glute. Life happens, and while I won’t make excuses, we need to get back to business pronto. If your roster looks like many of mine or resembles anything close to that of my pasta-can-littered floor, your fantasy team has finally hit the WTF (Where’s The Franzia?) stage of the season. Anthony Richardson is out for the year. Justin Jefferson is stuck on your IR. You lost J.K. Dobbins right out of the gate. And now, Joe Burrow is on bye and Calvin Ridley got you 1.5 points last night. BAD! But! But! Do not fret! There’s still a full slate of Sunday games to get right and it all begins with making the right calls before kickoff. Week 7 Start vs. Sit begins right now. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Earlier this week, the Minnesota Vikings released Pro Bowl RB Dalvin Cook. The 27-year-old is coming off his fourth consecutive 1,100 yard rushing season, and the first time he played every game in a season. Cook’s age is considered the “forbidden age” for RBs and the year where they start to decline, but it’s clear […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
With the NFL season approaching and the schedule released, it’s time to take a look ahead at how some teams might perform. Essentially, looking at win totals is predicting whether a team does better or worse than expected, and there’s some great value on the win totals for this upcoming season. Teams that go over […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
I get it. Talking defenses isn’t as sexy as talking about what quarterback, running back, or wide receiver will take you to the fantasy finish line. But guess what it can be, as sexy, that is. To know your defenses is to know the weaknesses you will exploit. And as we know, so many defenses […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
As my NFL free agency series winds to a close this week – don’t forget to check out the running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends – it’s time to finish strong with some shiny diamonds in the rough. Which signings went completely under the radar? Who could break out in a major way in […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week I dove deep on the wide receivers who changed teams – including some interesting and intriguing players like Allen Lazard, Parris Campbell and Trent Sherfield – but this week we switch gears to the tight end position. It’s not as bad as you think, really! This is ultimately a noteworthy NFL offseason when […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Running back is arguably the most talked-about position in our fantasy football universe, and well… this offseason is really shakin’ things up at such a pivotal position. Let’s dive right in and see how key running back transactions are reshaping the landscape of the game we love so much. Miles Sanders, Carolina Panthers: He did […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Don’t be sad that the fantasy football season is over; be glad it happened in the first place. However, if you are among the many football enthusiasts who play dynasty-format fantasy football, you know the season never truly ends.

Yes, we are all riveted by the questions of where quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Derek Carr, and Lamar Jackson will end up. But if your team is playing against them, shouldn’t you be equally anticipatory regarding your defensive line? Defensive linemen who can get to the quarterback and stop the run game before it hits the […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Every fantasy player is searching for the coming season’s new league-winning quarterback. The guy you pick up in the later rounds who leads you to the promised land. Sure, you could spend an early pick on the boring, safer options like Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes, but that’s not where the value is! You want […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
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 […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
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 […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
