Who are these guys? I’ll tell you exactly who they are. These guys are the players that no one else wants. The players that just sit on your waiver wire week after week, ignored for the hot play of the week. I bet more people picked up Thomas Rawls, James White and Dorial Green-Beckham last week than any of the following undesirable players. But that begs the question, what is your definition of “desirable”? Do you find 189.16 points desirable? If you don’t, I think you might need a new TI-84 and dose of reality. I currently sit in first place in the Razzball Writers league with a record of 9-1. Over those ten games I have averaged 133 points with a margin of victory of 26.8 points. 189.16 points is a little more than 56 points more than my weekly average. These half ass lineups that most of us wouldn’t consider starting even if we were told included players that were going to have a good week, are practically unbeatable.

Without targets, there would be no receptions. Being targeted is the first, and most crucial factor, to the success of a pass catcher. If the ball isn’t thrown in your direction, you cannot succeed. I decided to take a look at how targets were being spread around among each team and then how each player was converting those targets. Below are the results and I’ve included a link to the Excel spreadsheet (Download) containing the full report. This exercise will only be “targeting” wide receivers and tight ends.

And this is why you don’t draft too early, kids. In a surprise rivaling The Sixth Sense ending, Percy Harvin was placed on the PUP list yesterday after suffering a hip injury last week during workouts. The reports out right now are possible slight tear of the labrum in his hip and that he’ll get a second opinion next week about what will need to happen from here on out. Best case scenario for fantasy owners would be the follow up news says he can play this year, though as an owner I’d be leery and worried if that were the situation. In redraft leagues, this is a pretty scary place to be if you’ve already drafted considering his current ADP in yahoo leagues places him 29th overall. Until there’s more news to go off of I’m not yet ready to move him down my fantasy football rankings, but I wasn’t too hip – pun point! – on drafting him this year anyways. If it is indeed surgery required, I think he should start getting the Hakeem Nicks draft treatment from here on out. To date, Percy has only played one full season and that was in 2011. Outside of that it’s been 15, 14 and 9 and then whatever he plays this year. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t take too kindly to injured wide receivers ’round here. It’s a physical position for sure but just like Shakira, Percy’s hip don’t lie. He’s starting to look like someone who’s caught the chronic injury bug and I don’t want it infecting my fantasy teams. In other 2013 fantasy football news…

It’s championship week in most leagues, so there aren’t many roster holes that need to be plugged. There are teams everywhere who rode Adrian Peterson and Drew Brees to the title game, and they aren’t too worried. But there are also teams that got this far on the backs of Russell Wilson, James Jones and […]

We at Razzball know and understand the wide world of the internet can be a scary place.  It’s full of misinformation, bald Britney Spears pics and flat out lies.  We also know that no matter how much we try, we are never going to be able to provide you with every piece of information you […]
