What are you ranking? Everything! You get a ranking, you get a ranking, everybody gets a ranking! You’ll find my Standard, Half-PPR, and PPR rankings below.

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 four years and finished 30th overall for our Draft Rankings with a 32nd overall finish in Weekly just last season. And this is out of over 100+ industry sites and experts year-after-year. 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 lazy 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.)

I’m happy to report that Razzball had another great week with rankings. Tehol finished in the top-10 for quarterbacks, and on top of that, Rudy’s Pigskinator was able to rank first for wide receivers. That’s actually pretty amazing. Not only that, but for those of you who play in IDP leagues, Rudy’s projections finished second overall, and achieved top-10 status for both kickers and DSTs! Just some amazing results all around. And while it might seem self-serving when I wax poetic about our accuracy feats, it’s not just because I love talking about myself all the time (call me, ladies), it’s also because our success hopefully translates to our reader’s success. And if not? Then just do what I always do and blame Obama…

Here are your Week 6 Rankings… (Rest of Season rankings have been updated and can be found here!)

Period Accuracy Rank High Low Percentile
Week 5 51.7% 9 out of 21 62.8% 33.0% Top 50%
2015 57.7% 5 out of 20 59.6% 49.7% Top 25%

Here at Razzball, we try to stay away from social commentary. We pretty much stick to fantasy sports, puns, pop culture references and a whole lot of Game of Thrones without veering into the more serious side of sports. That said, it’s difficult to separate a guy like Ray Rice from some of the stuff we’ve seen and heard about him. I’m a huge Rutgers fan, and was a die-hard Rice supporter until everything came out last year, but since then, it’s impossible to look at him in the same light. The same applies to Greg Hardy. I mentioned him in the lede last week, and he exceeded expectations with 5 tackles, 2 sacks, a forced fumble and general chaos caused in the New England backfield. I completely understand if you’re disgusted by Hardy, and refuse to root for him or have him on your team. However, if you’re just in it to win it, he’s a top-10 option for the rest of the season at DL after his bye.

On that note, let’s take a look at what happened elsewhere in Week 5…

Another week, another set of results. While there was some slippage (that’s what she said?) in our Week 5 Rankings, the aggregate tells a different story. We’ve actually moved into the magical top-20 of all fantasy “experts” for the year, and top-15 percentile.

In the mean time, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post talking about Razzball Football’s bright future, I wanted to introduce a Razzball-only contest. Yes, it’s hosted by FanDuel, but instead of the large money leagues and bigger formats, we’re getting more intimate (that’s what I wish she said). And it’s just for the Razzball writers and readers… that’s it. Just a $5.00 buy-in and the top-12 finishers are part of the prize pool. We understand that Daily Fantasy isn’t for everyone, so this contest is just the thing we as a Razzball community can get into. For now, we’ll start with 55 spots and see how this week fares. So, if you’d like to take myself and your fellow readers on, join here!

And now, your Week 6 Rankings… (with an updated Rest of Season Rankings!) And, in lieu of our new Razzball Contest this week, I’ll be including a FanDuel Cheat Sheet below!

2014 In-Season Accuracy: 59.9% (2nd out of 21 Experts, 63.4% Highest, 43.1% Lowest).

Now that each team has played at least four games, we have somewhat of a sample size, at least by NFL standards. One or two big plays can still make a scrub look like a stud (Danny Lansanah anyone?), but in general the guys at the top of each position have earned their spot. So what do they all have in common? Tackles. The most consistent IDP stat doesn’t always, or ever, make headlines, but it does win championships. It’s the reason I was high on David Harris, should have been higher on Paul Worrilow, and was not high on Von Miller or Clay Matthews. If you see a fluke 3-sack or 2-interception game from a n0-name, it can likely be ignored. If you see a guy like Jelani Jenkins put up 14 tackles? Pick him up!
