What’s going on everyone, and welcome to the third week of the 2018 NFL season! I hope you guys all had a great Week 2 thanks to some awesome performances from Matt Ryan and Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson, Tyler Boyd, Christian McCaffrey, Adam Thielen, and Josh Allen (of all people).

Below are my rankings for Week 4, for all scoring systems, so enjoy!

And like always, be sure to check out Rudy’s fantastic premium tools here, and follow myselfMB, and Jay on Twitter.

In the meantime, I’ll be back on Saturday for the third edition of my 2018 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em series!

Accuracy Overall QB RB WR TE K DST
Week 1 #12 #6 #50 #47 #30 #78 #78

What are my rankings bona fidas? Well, there’s finishing in the FantasyPros Top-10 Draft Accuracy (7th Place) in 2017, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy (23rd Place) in 2017, Top-5 Draft Accuracy (3rd place) in 2016, Top-10 Weekly Accuracy (10th Place) in 2016, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy in 2015 (21st Place) and on average we’ve finished in the Top-10 Draft Accuracy (9th Overall) and the Top-20 Weekly Accuracy (18th Overall) for the past three years. I’d like to think we’re pretty good at this stuff…

What does the word bona fidas mean? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, bo·na fi·des \ ˌbō-nə-ˈfī-ˌdēz , ÷ˈbō-nə-ˌfīdz \ means 1 : good faith : sincerity, 2 : the fact of being genuine —often plural in construction, 3 : evidence of one’s good faith or genuineness —often plural in construction, 4 : evidence of one’s qualifications or achievements —often plural in construction. On a separate note, I think it would make a great name for a cat.

What’s my ranking process? I’ve actually written about this in the past, and instead of working hard for new and enlightening content, I have chosen the more efficient (lazy, ahem) method and dropping in a link to that post here. Honestly, my process hasn’t changed much at all (the ole “don’t fix what ain’t broke” proverb comes to mind) and so my “A Day in the Life of a Fantasy Football Ranker” story still remains relevant to this day. (The TL;DR is: I’m ghetto as fudge. Well, I mean the other “f” word, but I’m hungry.)

How should I use your rankings? The same way your mother does. Which actually makes no sense. (Unless your mother is in the running to always finish top-3 in your Fantasy Football league. And if that’s the case, say hello to her for me.)

Week 1 is almost here! And while I’ve obviously taken a back seat this year (self-imposed, just life maaaaan), I’ll still stop by weekly and provide my rankings. I’ll try to get to questions as best I can, but time, or the lack thereof, is becoming an increasing issue for me. All I can promise is that I’ll try my best, but you can always count on MB, Zach, and the rest of the wonderful Razzball crew to help you this entire season. While I’ve found great success with my rankings, all of our contributors have been offering the content and analysis that complements all of our rankings. I’d hope that you come to rely on them as I have so often the past year-and-a-half. Regardless, as I spoiled earlier, Week 1 is incoming, along with another NFL season, so let’s get Razzasty. I’m actually not sure how to pronounce that…

It’s about time we wipe, scrape, and any other action one does to remove dust (probably more wipe than scrape, because if you’re scraping, that’s not dust man) from the place I call home: Razzball Football. Now that we’ve finally reached our own Fantasy Football preseason schedule, we should take a short time to reflect on what was your prototypical offseason… which was basically a draft, a free agency period, and then a great NFL black hole of nothing happening that sucks space-time so hard, I sometimes think about astrophysics when jacking off. (Coincidentally, this is also how I describe the time in between Game of Thrones seasons.) In what is probably one of the biggest slogs in any sport, the NFL offseason is now behind us and we can start talking about the important things in life. Like Rankings. Draft Strategy. Team previews. Real content! And yeah, jacking off. Which is also, technically, content. Regardless, the first order of business are our Rankings and here’s how it’ll all play out, just so you plan your life accordingly! And when I say your life, I really mean my life…

So, instead of ignoring the obvious, I’ll go ahead and embrace it. These were pretty bad results in Week 13, I mean, we’re talking ESPN territory. It also kicked Razzball just outside the top-10 to 11th best accuracy for the year… still an amazing result when you look at the big picture, and would still be a big improvement from previous years. Regardless, last week and the next couple are when we need to do our best jobs for those of you remaining in the hunt, so I’ll be working extra hard to make sure our performance gets the results all of you need. Sounds like a perfect job for Viagra…

Another week, another okay-ish result, but overall, Razzball is still holding strong in the top-10 for the season. This is the first week of Fantasy Football playoffs for many of us, so I know we’re all 98% excited, 2% scared. Or maybe it’s more… it could be 98% scared and 2% excited. Actually, you know, I just quoted Armageddon, so I think we can just quickly move along to the rankings and pretend none of this ever happened…

I know we have football starting pretty early tomorrow, and since we’ll all either be cooking, eating, and napping (or all of them at once, like me!), here are your Thanksgiving Day rankings a bit earlier than usual… (Happy Holidays everyone!)

Special Note: I just wanted to mention that our very own Tehol Beddict has been absolutely incredible the past month with his calls. A fourth place finish in Week 10 was followed up by a number one overall finish in Week 11. Be sure to check out his rankings here! And as always, if you need the hard data (hey baby) and projections, be sure to check out Rudy’s Pigskinator!
