It’s just the place where you stop the story…

Unless you’re Gus Bradley that is. With Jacksonville’s long nightmare coming to an end (with a potentially new nightmare on the horizon, because, well, it’s Jacksonville, and Jeff Fisher is still out there), it seems proper to announce that this is our official end to the 2016 Razzball Football season, content-wise. As I’m sure all of you know, we run a smaller ship than the other sites in the Razzball Network, but to combat that, we use 100% more nautical terms. I realize that the actual NFL Season hasn’t ended yet, but with two weeks left to go, your Fantasy Season should be coming to a close. (YMMV.) We’ll still release rankings the next two weeks and during the playoffs, and we’ll have a few more podcasts this year, and I’ll still be here answering all of your questions… (I’ll always be here, maaaan), but as the readership dwindles and Christmas approaches, I just wanted to take the time to again thank my contributors and you, the Razzball community for making this season another great one.

Please, blog, may I have some more?

Normally, I start with a little opening about the week and dive into the picks for the waiver wire. This week, I’m going to go a little different to open…

It’s one thing to get waiver advice from this site. It’s another thing to get it from someone who is in first place. It’s even nicer when they’re the same person. That is exactly the case right now in the Razzball Writers League, where I am the top banana by myself at 6-1. Hooray for me at the halfway point. Enough chest-thumping, let’s get into the meat of the column.

This week is going to be a very key one on the waiver wire. This is Week 8 and each of the next two weeks feature six teams on bye. If you make the right move this week, you can potentially sit back and reap the benefits while your opponents scramble each week trying to make moves. First, the byes. This week, it’s San Francisco and the New York Giants. Week 9 features Atlanta, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay and Tennessee sitting out. Week 10 has Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, New England, San Diego and Washington at home on the couch. Week 11 is a little easier with Baltimore, Dallas, the Jets and Jacksonville on a bye. And Carolina and Pittsburgh close it out on Week 12.

We’re going to have to keep this in mind as we evaluate our selections.

Overall: 31-29-1, Week 5: 9-6-0.

Greetings!!! Welcome to another exciting edition of Betting With Beddict. We’re back over .500 with a 9-6 week!!! If you’d like to join Sky and I to celebrate, just meet us down in Tijuana, as we’re trying to hit every donkey show in the city. I sent Fantasy Football Hottie a first class plane ticket, but no word on if she’s joining us or not. Either way, you need to follow her on Twitter as she’s a total peach (whatever that means). My lock of the week, the Seattle Seahawks (7.5) barely covered, but hey, that’s gambling. If it wasn’t for Dallas and Chicago choking like Lisa Anne on an 18 incher, it’d been a day for the ages. I’ve been celebrating my birthday all week, so please excuse the lack of wordiness, humor and usual Tehol-ness (I’m sure you’re devastated. Especially Jay). Last week, one of my favorite commentators, Goodfold2, joined in on the fun just to see how difficult this truly is. Him and I both cordially challenge you to join in and see if you can defeat me week to week or even throughout the season. If someone dominates me for a month or even an entire season I MIGHT just hit you with a Razzball T-shirt, cuz we homies yo. Just remember, if sports betting were easy, everyone would do it. The quest for the perfect week continues so let’s get it poppin’.

Here is the next article in our series we are referring to as Deep Impact, where we at Razzball examine players who are tucked away deep in the player projections or waiver wire and are bound to surpass their underwhelming expectations. The benefit of these players, aside from showing off your fantasy football prowess throughout the season, is that they are often available on your fantasy league’s waiver wire and can provide relief to owners looking for quality talent in deeper formats. The player of focus in this article will be Jacksonville Jaguars second-year running back Denard Robinson.
