May the Fourth be with you! I’m not a Star Wars guy but it’s still fun to say. The draft is in the past and now we can move on. I couldn’t wait to put out some rankings to talk about with all of the readers. Well, I’m not sure how many of you are reading football posts at this point of the year, but if you are, I’m glad you’re here.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Eagles won the Super Bowl! Of course, America wins in the battle of the most patriotic mascots in the NFL. I think that the best part is that the Patriots got beat without any fluky helmet catches and by a quarterback not named Eli Manning. BDN Foles (deconstructed abbreviation NSFW) put together his second straight clutch performance for the Eagles. The RPOs, the beautiful RPOs. They’re so hot right now. It’s like if the wildcat was sustainable and effective. When it was all said and done, it was a great season finale of NFL Football. It was right on par with any Breaking Bad finale and much better than the latest season finale of Game of Thrones.
Speaking of prestige television, did you cry when you saw how Jack died? Yes, you did. You bawled harder than your wife and she had to hold you while you sobbed. Don’t pretend you didn’t stay after the game for This Is Us. Westworld and This is Us, be a guy who can enjoy both. Or don’t, there’s more to strive for in life. Reading about fantasy football in February is a great start! About a week and a half ago, I covered quarterbacks and running backs, so you should check that out. It’s time to put the 2017 season in the past once and for all with reviewing the wide receiver and tight end positions.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello everyone, and welcome to a very important Wednesday here at Razzball. Yes, it is rankings day, but it is also Week 16 of the NFL season. For most of you, this only spells out one thing: Championship Week.
With the help of myself, MB, Jay and the Razzblitz podcast (coming out on Friday), we’ll be with you guys every step of the way during this crucial week.
So without further ado, let’s get to it.

This is when people are bound to get really mad at my predictions. I hope I get death threats! That’s how you know you’ve made it, right?!
After this article goes live I’ll be answering all of your comments Saturday evening when I’m free for the night so get to posting!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here’s hoping you made the playoffs in all your leagues; of course the one league I didn’t make it was the one that cost the most paperclips; that’s what we call it in my work league, at least we do until the Supreme Court decides gambling is legal everywhere. So let’s thank Chris Christie (sitting front row) and the wonderful state of New Jersey for bringing this case to the Supreme Court (under the guise of State’s Rights, no less) because gambling should be legal in America. Then I thought about trips to casinos, the race track and OTBs and realize if there was one thing we need is not more places to make bets in America. I can absolutely wait on sports gambling at 7-11, McDonalds, Target, Starbucks, and everywhere in between. I’m sticking to Fantasy thank you very much.
Anyway the season has progressed rather quickly it seems, and I’m not ready for the fantasy season to be over in three weeks. So let’s do what we can to enjoy them. You guys that have been with me through the weeks know we are talking Free Agent Auction Bidding. Back in week one we started with $100; now I’m going to try something different, giving us $25 to play with. So let’s get spending!Please, blog, may I have some more?
I was overseas last week in London and noticed there was an overabundance of barber shops though a severe lack of dentists; good hair is important, mind you, but why not have good teeth, too? Speaking of Barber’s (look at that segue) we have one in Tampa coming off a two TD game though he’s not the man of the week; but before we get to that, let’s recap the game we’re playing here:
You and I all know this is Free Agent Auction Bidding, and we started with $100 FAAB dollars. I don’t have any left, so if you do I’ve broken this week down into 3 categories: 1. Spend all the monies, 2. For a buck and 3. If they clear. Understood? Good, let’s get to it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Is Tom Brady the best football player of all time? I need your help to solve an argument.
Anyway, the top two (healthy) scoring fantasy QBs, Alex Smith and Carson Wentz, are out this week. #1 scoring fantasy RB Kareem Hunt is on a bye. Three top 10 WRs are out: two due to a bye (Tyreek Hill and Michael Crabtree) and one possibly due to his own stupidity (Mike Evans.) And the two top TEs, Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz, will be out as well.Please, blog, may I have some more?
November 1, 2017 @ 1:30 PM: Me: have Dak Prescott and Deshaun Watson on my team. Decide to shop Prescott to a rival league member who was struggling with Jameis Winston and Philip Rivers as his QBs.
November 1, 2017 @ 1:52 PM: Trade is accepted to send Prescott to other team member.
November 1, 2017 @ 2:04 PM: Text exchange with another league member:
November 2, 2017 @ 4:12 PM: Reports: Watson was limited in practice due to a sore knee. “lol”
November 2, 2017 @ 4:53 PM: Early reports: Watson might have torn his ACL, season possibly over. “lol”
November 2, 2017 @ 5:27 PM: Reports confirmed. Watson has torn his ACL and is done for the season. “lol”
November 3, 2017 @ 3:00 PM: Trade is processed. “lol…”Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you hadn’t noticed from the alerts that you are getting on your phone that are annoying your wife or girlfriend, the trade deadline is upon us and we had a busy Monday night. We have two trades that have big impacts on three offenses so far. Since the trade deadline isn’t officially over until 4:00 P.M. Est on Tuesday, you may be hearing from me twice.
There are reportedly two teams that are showing interest in Frank Gore. As if that is not a big enough clue that the Colts are tanking for the season, Indianapolis is also reportedly fielding calls for T.Y. Hilton as well. It would be surprising to me, but maybe Martavis Bryant gets moved to a contender who needs some burst in their receiving corps. Earlier today, it was reported that the Eagles are kicking the tires on the possibility of the Detroit Lions trading them the rights to Calvin Johnson. But this morning, we are focusing So, let’s get this started before you make your waiver wire claims this evening.
[BREAKING: Ezekiel Elliott has been denied his Preliminary Injunction, which essentially means his suspension has been upheld. Note that the suspension will begin after a 24 hour period and the NFLPA will certainly appeal. So he can’t play for the next six games. MAYBE. We’ll know more tomorrow. Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden remain must-owns in all formats.]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Man, keep me away from your favorite football team. I had the opportunity to check out the supposed football game between the Giants and Chargers and I’m convinced that I am bad luck. Injury after injury after injury has the Giants in contention for a top 5 pick in this year’s draft.
The Bills, Cowboys, Bengals and Seahawks will have bye weeks so there are a lot of fantasy points that you will have to make up from RBs: LeSean McCoy and Ezekiel Elliott to WRs Dez Bryant, A.J. Green and Doug Baldwin to dual-threat QBs in Russell Wilson, Dak Prescott and Tyrod Taylor. Leave me a message down below if you need some fill in options from your waiver pool.Please, blog, may I have some more?
