There would be no other proper way to begin this rant than by saying the four words that are screaming to be ejected from my mouth. Ef you Jay Cutler! What a bag of dog excrement. I don’t know him personally, and he might be a good dude to slam beers with (doubtful), but as far a quarterbacks are concerned, he can just go away. I’m sick of all the “Jay Cutler is a top quarterback” talk that I’ve heard for the past few seasons. He’s not.

Sing it with me! His name was Kevin/He was a Cardinal/He had a 6 year 60 mil deal and then played 15 games in 2 years…and on and on and so forth. What, you thought you’d get the full song outta me? BUY THE ALBUM! Kids these days with their Napsters and their Limewire. You could buy the single if you prefer for .99 cents or the deluxe $1.99 one that has an image of me signing a fan’s boobs. I didn’t realize I had such a male following but when you dress to impress, you get to sign flesh. But back to the moral of the story here: don’t sign man boobs when a camera is near by. And for another moral to a story that’s more relevant to the topic at hand, while NCAA fans were getting treated to a Shocker for the first time this weekend, the Buffalo Bills were signing Kevin Kolb to a 2 year deal on Saturday worth a very incentive-laden $13 million. Now here’s where I’m about to zig where a million people are zagging and no I’m not talking about those poor Gonzaga fans out there: I like this move. I’m prepared for the hate, bring it snitches! Here’s what we know about Kolb. We know that he was – for the most part – unsuccessful in his stint in Arizona. However, we also know that no QB was successful in Arizona over the last two years and a majority of this can be put on the offensive line which ranked by many metrics either dead last or in the bottom five for O-Lines in the NFL. Hard to be good with the ball from your backside unless you’re an escort and Kolb is no different. But let’s get back to that ‘for the most part’ statement I said earlier. After stepping in for John Skelton late in week 1, Kolb produced the line of 1,169 passing yards, 8 touchdowns and 3 interceptions and led the Cardinals to a 4-2 start. In essence, he played 5 games before getting hurt against the Bills. Extrapolate those stats across, say, 15 games and you have 24 touchdowns, 9 interceptions and over 3,500 passing yards. Those stats would’ve put him as a top 20 QB for fantasy, possibly a top 15. Now I’m not saying to go buck-wild crazy for Kevin at this point. We still have a draft coming up and it’s very possible the Bills draft Nassib to reunite Marrone with his ‘Cuse QB but Kolb is in a better situation in Buffalo. If he’s the starter for 2013, he’s very worthy of a roster spot in 2QB or 1QB/1QB flex leagues and one to keep your eye on for this year. Sound crazy? Well Ryan Fitzpatrick has been a top 20 QB for the last two straight years behind a solid line with decent skill-position players surrounding him. I do believe that as your floor is exciting enough considering he’ll probably go nowhere near the top 20 QBs come draft day. And with that, here’s a look at some other news going on from this weekend for 2013 fantasy football…Please, blog, may I have some more?
So the story goes, when I started my top 20 tight end rankings for 2012 fantasy football, I decided ‘I’ll write about a few guys that weren’t in the top 20 but deserved some words’. Looking back, instead of defending my lack of love for Kellen Winslow or Martellus Bennett, I wish I’d spent a […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
So what I did here was extrapolate how many fantasy points quarterbacks would have if they started all 16 games. To make this list you either have to have played 8+ games or have been drafted in fantasy leagues in the top 24 QBs which really is only Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb. So unfortunately […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
What’s up weekend warriors? It’s time for another installment of Target(s) Practice. It’s hard to believe that we’re already a quarter of the way through the regular season and so far this year the only thing that’s been predictable is that all of your best fantasy players are going to get injured. At least that’s […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hola Razzballians. We are finally starting to settle in to the NFL season. At this point you should be expecting some trends to develop, but many trenders were tarnished in week three (see the law office of Green,Davis, Simpson, Burleson, and Branch). Trying to predict what will happen in this crazy fake sport is like […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There’s a sweet smell in the air this time of year. But it’s not tailgates, beer and highly-paid men in pads pummeling each other. It’s actually the smell of full-grown men (and women?) hunched over their laptops, researching, adding, dropping and trading their way to glory. Yes, friends, fantasy football season is upon us. And […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
We continue to see tons of fantasy relevant moves coming down the pipe. Some good, some not so good, but they are what they are and we will somehow have to trudge through. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it. Ok, I’ll give it a shot. Oh, and keep an eye on […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we count down to NFL 2011 let’s take a look at the Razzball goings ons, the news and some links that don’t stink. If you are just tuning in this season you should make sure you check out our latest contest. Do you think you can write better than me? I know, it wouldn’t […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Late season production from the previous year can provide a glimpse of potential production for the upcoming year. There were a few players that came on strong in the last quarter of the 2010 season after having a not-so-great first three quarters of the season. These here fellers are looking to build on their late […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
