After the first go around of the rest of the season rankings, we noted that a few of the top players from our consensus ADP haven’t performed just yet. Unfortunately for the rest of the season rankings and our fantasy teams, players like Jonathan Taylor, Austin Ekeler, Christian McCaffrey, and Dalvin Cook still haven’t returned […]

There are a lot of things I’ve observed over the last two weeks, such as my coworker’s collection of other people’s hair and the hole in my backyard that a family of armadillos has been digging for at least the past week. These are observations I could have done without and which you need not know, but for the sake of a segue, you were forced to. And no, this isn’t Zoey 101, and no one is getting a free Segway. I would call those sobservations, as they made me sob, and such is not the focus of this post. Today, I am instead introducing the bi-weekly fantasy football Hobbservations column, which I will be releasing throughout the upcoming season to break down some of my biggest takeaways from the gridiron. Since Week 1 is still over one week away, this debut installment includes my major Hobbservations from drafts I have participated in, trends I have noticed in those drafts, player values I am targeting, and notes I have from the back-end of NFL training camps that warrant reiteration. So, forget about that hair collection and the holes which fill our lives, and join me in the first Hobbservations article of the 2022 campaign.

  An underrated aspect of fantasy football is the impact of offensive lines. We have seen many seasons derailed and upsides capped by terrible offensive line play. Teams like the 2019 Rams saw their PFF offensive line rank go from 13 in the preseason to 31 after the year. This resulted in key players like […]

Another pandemic plagued week in the NFL forced over 170 players to the COVID-19 list, and it has me thinking about the talent margin between starters, backups, and practice squad players. Houston Texans running back, Rex Burkhead (one of my favorites) ran for a career-high 149 yards and two touchdowns. Pretty good day for a 31-year-old veteran on the worst rushing offense in the league. Which begs the question, what if Rex had gotten an opportunity at a younger age? What if Rex Burkhead had been the starting running back for the Bengals at age 24?

While watching Rex take advantage of his opportunity, I see an advertisement for the Kurt Warner biopic American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story. Warner only got his opportunity after an injury to Trent Green. Trent was not exactly Wally Pipp. Green would eventually follow former Rams Head Coach Dick Vermeil to Kansas City and had a nice run with the Chiefs. What if Trent Green hadn’t gotten injured? Would there be an American Underdog story to tell? I implore you to be flexible when preparing your rankings. Prepare yourself for wild fluctuations in value and adjust accordingly. Situation and opportunity are the two most important factors to consider in fantasy football, and those factors are often in flux.

If you missed it last week, here is the top 10 for 2022 fantasy football dynasty leagues.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back after a 1 week hiatus. The guys are here to recap week 13 and help you prepare for this important last week of the regular season. If you’re out of the playoff race, we also talk about the dynasty value of some of the week’s top performers. 

We discuss where young RBs Javonte Williams, Antonio Gibson, Joe Mixon, Ezekiel Elliott, and others fit in among their peers at RB. We discuss another top dynasty asset in Jaylen Waddle and how many WRs we’d take over the young stud in Miami. As always, we wrap up the pod with the A$$hole of the week!

Sometimes you must know when to say goodbye. Sometimes we hold on for too long to something or someone who needs to go. Being in our lives gives us a sense of hope however false it may be. Whether you are bidding adieu to a reunited love on a tarmac, releasing your best friend back into the wild where they belong, or cutting Curtis Samuel about eight weeks later than most other fantasy managers: sometimes it is best to set them free. The playoffs are not far off and now is the time to start shaping those rosters for the tough journey ahead.

As we move from the half way mark of the season, B_Don has another guest, Steve Paulo, on to discuss week 9. We start with the Arizona Cardinals offense as we wait for word on Kyler Murray and with Chase Edmonds set to miss a few weeks. Next, the 2 talk about a couple of top RBs for the ROS in Joe Mixon and Christian McCaffrey. 

B_Don moves the topic to Steve’s favorite team, the 49ers, as he asks about Brandon Aiyuk, and the 49ers RB situation between Elijah Mitchell and Jeff Wilson. One of the teams that can give both Bears and 49ers fans hope, is the Jets. They have a QB controversy and Elijah Moore may be developing in front of our eyes. We compare Elijah to other WRs for redraft and dynasty. We wrap up with everyone’s favorite segment, A$$hole of the Week!

I had my first board meeting with the Razzball executives this past week and was it a doozy. If you’re wondering what a meeting with Razzball looks like, it is all very secretive and mysterious. None of our identities are known and we all wear large teddy bear suits. We often get accused of copying the 1998 motion picture The Avengers (no not the Marvel one), but they told me we did it first. At the meeting we addressed how we should refer to the free agent acquisition budget (FAAB) percentages going forth. After two darts in the neck to teddy bears I can only assume were Skorish and JB Barry (neither returned my calls over the weekend), we decided going forth the percentages will still reflect original budget. We would like to thank all who contributed and Reddit for sending their weird bear with the crazy smile. Apparently, he had to pay extra tokens for it and we know this because he just would not shut up about it! Alas, your waivers.
