It’s your buddy Mitch Staniger checking in and proving to be a real five-tool asset to Razzball and the fantasy sports community.  OK, maybe five-tool is a stretch, so let’s just agree to agree on two-tool; DFS baseball and fantasy football advice.  Now that that is out of the way and I am done […]

The most logical place to begin my position player ranking is the premier position in the NFL, Quarterback. I have already listed the six players from this position group, if you are interested in reading my thoughts on any of those players, I refer you to my top 10 for 2022 fantasy football dynasty leagues, […]

! Warning ! Your 2021 fantasy football season is on FINAL NOTICE. Otherwise meaning: your team is swirling down the crapper, spiraling more quickly thank my bank account after a fun-filled day spent at Chuck-E-Cheese, and you’re desperately in need of that one (maybe two?) player to save you from permanent destruction. Now, there’s this scene in New Girl where Nick shows Jess his box of overdue bills, which he hides in the closet — a place where he puts things he doesn’t want to have to deal with. Heading into Week 11, do not let your fantasy roster become a hidden box of overdue bills. Get the box out. Read the writing on the wall (in the letter). Take a stand and do something about it. Target the right players. Don’t waste a waiver claim on the guy who will save you for one week, rather, go big on the one name that could turn your entire season around. In this segment, I’ll detail seven players who hold the potential to flip the switch your 2021 fantasy football season. Many of these names have been discussed in this week’s waiver column, but as I’ll discuss later, not every waiver add has rest-of-season relevance. These players aren’t so much league winners, as they are league savers.

You could tell the Halloween spirit was in the air in our first Thursday Night Football game in October. We saw the Seattle Seahawks come out in their neon green uniforms, looking like a bunch of aliens to set the tone. Then, right on the opening kickoff, Tutu Atwell took the kick and made it about 10 yards before the ghost of Cortez Kennedy blindsided him causing him to hit the ground and fumble out of bounds with no other players around him. Before the game was over, both quarterbacks had bandages on their hands after having to mummy wrap their respective finger injuries. You knew something spooky was going on when we saw Geno Smith out there with his first real game action since 2017. We are definitely in the Halloween season!

It was a world unknown — and I was using an egregiously overused portmanteau in place of my name: Hobbstradomus. I awoke to tell all what I envisioned: an unimaginable world of fantasy football in which Chris Collinsworth did not exist and yet the legendary John Madden was back in full color yelling BOOM! Every two seconds. Literally. But yet I saw the cards as they were to fall, rolled over to my left, and whispered in my dear fiancé’s ear…

Her reaction was not what I expected. She called me foolish — an idiot in fact — and promptly went back to bed. Although I cannot understand her reaction to a breakthrough as important as mine at 2:49 p.m. that fateful night — I can share my findings with those who do care. And so, I present to you my five bold predictions for the 2021 fantasy football season.

The night was May 14, 2003. A night I was greatly anticipating because of two big events. First the series finale of my favorite tween television series, Dawson’s Creek or The Creek to the cool kids, was airing and at midnight. Then I was going to see the sequel to The Matrix, which was easily one of the best science fiction films of the previous ten years. It turned out to be the most disappointing night of my twenty-something pop culture obsessed life.

It’s the holiday weekend and football season is right around the corner. Leagues everywhere are scrambling to set up their fantasy drafts before kickoff this week. Today’s article is going to help you prepare for your draft and help you plan when and how to draft your quarterbacks. The most common leagues are 10 or 12 team redraft leagues where you start 1 QB each week, so in those leagues, you want to have 2 starting quarterbacks when you walk out of the draft room. There are 32 teams in the NFL so you can do this with no problem, but you also don’t want to come out of your draft with Tyrod Taylor as your backup QB. What I’m going to break down for you here in this article is specifically where to target drafting your quarterbacks this year.

In this article, we break down Fantasy Points Per Reception or FPPR positive regression candidates from 2020 at the wide receiver position. The goal of this article is to help you identify players to potentially buy in 2021.

A couple of things you might want to know first. The league average FPPR for wide receivers over the past 10 seasons is 2.19. For a wide receiver to see one point more per game they need to average four receptions per game and see an increase in FPPR of .25.

It’s been an eventful offseason for the quarterback position. I know, I know, it’s too soon to joke about Masseuse Gate. But as I read over one massage therapist’s account of an interaction with Deshaun Watson back in 2019, my immaturity got the best of me as visuals entered my mind. I’ll just leave this here:

“Watson developed an erection, she says, and also began clenching and slowly ‘thrusting the air.'”

Regardless of  maturity level, it’s difficult to read that Sports Illustrated article and not find it both very credible and extremely concerning for the future of Watson’s NFL career. I don’t see many paths to him playing football in 2021. And then we have the whole, slightly less mind boggling, Aaron Rodgers saga. Will the Packers hall of famer hang up the cleats to pursue a career as Jeopardy host? If I have to take a hard stance today, I’m saying neither of these elite fantasy QB options touch the field this season. And thus, you will not find either among my top 10 quarterbacks for 2021 fantasy football:

*Note: These rankings are geared toward standard QB scoring with 4 points per passing touchdown. Projections provided in this season’s rankings are not my own, they come from Rudy Gamble’s World Renowned 2021 Fantasy Football Projections.
