Air Yards are the Gordon Ramsey of fantasy receiving stats. They tell us exactly what was right and clearly what was wrong with how a receiver performed in a given week. Often, it’s not easy to hear. But you as a fantasy manager need to pay attention to the under-the-hood numbers from your receivers instead of just blindly trusting the box score results, you donkey. 

Each week, this column will dissect air yards for actionable info in the weeks to come. For Week 6, we will do a quick analysis of the list of the 84 wide receivers who finished last week with at least 30 air yards.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back to discuss some of the 2021 breakout players. We discuss all sorts of players from those that may have jumped to the elite tier or players that we didn’t see coming. Then, we discuss their value over the rest of the season and discuss where they rank at their position and whether or not you should be selling. 

We start with a couple big injuries to Russell Wilson and Saquon Barkley. We move on to some RBs and we look at Austin Ekeler, Cordarrelle Patterson, Aaron Jones, Jonathan Taylor, and Michael Carter. We also discuss the likely high priority waiver claims this week in Darrel Williams and Devontae Booker. 

We continue our breakout discussion with wide receivers. Nobody has climbed like Mike Williams and Deebo Samuel. Rookie sensation Ja’Marr Chase hasn’t disappointed, but do the guys think he keeps it up? We also talk about what we expect from another hot pickup of the week in Kadarius Toney. We wrap up the show with some thoughts on tight ends. Is it finally Kyle Pitts SZN and where does he fit among TEs? What about the TD making Dawson Knox? And we discuss whether it’s time to panic on Darren Waller.

With the 17 game season this year, we’ll hit the quarter mark of games around the first quarter of the games this week. Seems like as good of a time as any to take a look at what has happened so far this season and where we went wrong or right. One in particular is our pre-season and current Ezekiel Elliott ranking. Among other surprises this season, Cordarrelle Patterson and Sam Darnold stand near the top of biggest over performers based on draft ranking. 

We look at some of the injuries from week 4 and how they may play out ROS. From the Chicago and Cincinnati RB situations to the Jacksonville WR room, the week 4 injuries could have meaningful impacts on several players. We also discuss the rookie QBs and where we’re at on them for week 5 and beyond. As always, we wrap up with our A$$hole of the Week.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back to discuss the happenings from week 2 and look forward into week 3, AND BEYOND. We start with some Justin Fields talk as he takes the starting job for DA BEARS. 

The guys take a look at some of the more confusing time shares in fantasy football. What to do with messy RB situations like Dallas, LA Rams, and Baltimore. We also look into the WR groups for the Rams, Ravens, Vikings, 49ers, and Broncos. The guys also spend about 20 minutes discussing Tyler Lockett and the consistency of WRs week to week. Ryder die this week!

Each week, this column will dissect air yards for actionable info in the weeks to come. For Week 1, we will do a quick analysis of the list of 75 wide receivers who finished the week with at least 30 air yards.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth discuss the happenings from week 1. We discuss the fallout from the Ryan Fitzpatrick injury for all of the WFT weapons. Does it help anyone potentially or is just an all around loss? Podcast favorite Jerry Jeudy is going to miss some time as well, and we talk about who our priority is among Tim Patrick and K.J. Hamler. The 49ers RB situation was already a mess and with the season ending Raheem Mostert injury, how do the guys think the backfield plays out for the rest of the season? The guys take a look at some of the pickups for the week and where we would have our priorities. 

We then move on to talk about some of the surprises from week 1. Austin Ekeler with 0 receptions and the shocking healthy scratches for Trey Sermon and Zack Moss. Speaking of complicated RB situations, the guys look at how they expect the Ravens backfield to play out. We then discuss some of the studs and duds from week 1 and whether we’re moving them around in our rest of season rankings. We finish the show with everyone’s favorite, A**hole of the week!

All of us nerds in our basements writing out fantasy football stats on the back of comic books will never be satisfied, will we? It’s not enough that we have receiving yards, target share, snap counts, aDOT, RACR, and WOPR for wide receivers and tight ends. Now we have to dissect and analyze how far a football was thrown in the air no matter whether the ball was caught or not? Does that even really matter? 

Well, whenever you get a stat that is as predictive and actionable as air yards, you bet your nerdy ass it matters. What in the name of Dungeons and Dragons is air yards? Glad you asked. Let’s dig in.

Before week 1 of the season, B_Don and Donkey Teeth bring in the big gun, Razzball co-founder, Rudy Gamble. We go over some news with the Le’Veon signing, Latavius Murray getting cut, and some last minute week 1 injuries. The guys weigh in on some of the primary waiver wire targets and how they would prioritize them (none of us agree btw). Then, we move on to ask Rudy about the Razzball football tools and his weekly in-season projections. The guys ask him about Baker Mayfield and his hatred for Jameis Winston. Last, we ask Rudy to explain his Raheem Mostert love.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth discuss some of the recent season affecting injuries and cuts as we enter a very busy draft weekend. Football is back! We start with the injury news to 2nd year running back, JK Dobbins, and where he fits in with fellow young RBs Cam Akers and Travis Etienne for dynasty value. Cam Newton is out, Mac Jones is in for New England. Where are the guys on the weapons? Jakobi Meyers, Rhamondre Stevenson, Damien Harris, and the tight ends.

B_Don and DT compare their top 200 rankings. We discuss our biggest differences in Miles Sanders, Jalen Hurts, and a bunch of young WRs. We also talk about the guys that missed the cut for one of our lists in Dyami Brown, Tyrell Williams, and who we expect to take the 2nd WR spot for the Chiefs.

Razzbowl drafts combine all aspects of fantasy football, including a Bestball format in Weeks 1-9 plus a manager-selected lineup format once the playoffs begin in Week 10. Add in a $10 free agent budget (with no $0 bids) for Weeks 1-10 just for some spice in your life. It’s full PPR but also 6 points per quarterback touchdown. You don’t have to worry about kickers and defense, but all that means is by round 20 the skill position players are looking mighty thin. How can I possible attack a draft like this? The draft strategies in this tournament are as diverse as the league rules, and it’s especially challenging considering the level of competition in each league.
