It’s official because we don’t deal in unofficial. Whatever that means. Which is nothing, if you’re wondering. But it does make this post feel more important. Delusions of grandeur? That’s my life story bro. And that also might describe the life story of many here who reside at Razzball HQ. Which is basically our basements. With bountiful supplies of Hot Pockets and alchohal. Why do we make these picks? Because we think we’re right all the time. Except for me. I’m just very wrong. But don’t let that stop you from looking at our well-thought out (MAYBE) picks for this upcoming 2015 season. The thing is, we all can’t write a 1500 word exposé on these players, so you get this nifty assortment where you’ll gain a general sense of which players we like and which we don’t. All in a simple box for you to stare and giggle at. Kind of like what you normally would do if you were looking at Tehol‘s well, you know, simple box. Along with that, we’ve taken a stab at the NFL Playoff picture, calling both the Championship games and the Super Bowl. Enjoy!

New to Daily Fantasy Football? I am too! I’m trying out this new free FanDuel’s contest, where half the league is guaranteed to win. If you want, you can join up with me! (Played FanDuel before? You can build a team for $5 for a chance of $100,000, part of a one million dollar prize pool!)

Break Out Player of The Year (Sleeper)

You might think we’re describing someone who breaks through walls and then falls asleep really fast. Which seems weird. So I wouldn’t really put it past us… To limit the confusion, I’d better point out that these are our potential break out candidates that you should be grabbing long and grabbing hard.

Most Overrated Player of The Year (Bust)

These are the guys being held on a pedestal’s, who will, in return for all your worship and sacrifice, ruin everything thing you hold dear. See: 2014, Fielder, Prince. Take heed Razzballers, avoid these guys at all costs.

I Think I Love You, So What Am I So Afraid Of? (Infatuation)

Yep, we all have one. Find out which player your Razzball writer has an undying love for, despite any rational reason or purpose.

Come Back Player of The Year (Come Back)

Again, pretty easy to figure out what this one means.

    It will be interesting to see who gets the most correct. Were they locked on March 30? And Kevin had Andrew Luck for ROY?
    I am ready for some football!

    I like Kevin’s moxie picking Andrew Luck for ROY.

      @Mrs.Featherbottom: I don’t know. I think Lance is going to give him a run for his money taking CJ Anderson.

        @John: Truly funny. Love the sarcastic commentary. What might really be funny is if the Razzball writers really didn’t know who the rookies were.

      @Mrs.Featherbottom: The dude is a savant. I fixed it, but I thought Mariota as the MVP was pretty bold.

      • RotoLance

        RotoLance says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I answered it as if it were the fantasy MVP, not the real MVP, which also makes it more up to interpretation. Anyway, it doesn’t matter. But if it we were trying to pick the NFL MVP should probably be a QB or JJ Watt.

        This was actually more interesting and fun than I thought it would be.

          • RotoLance

            RotoLance says:
            (link)

            @Jay: But it was weird how a lot if not all of the names are legit NFL MVP candidates even if the RBs only have a small chance relative to the QBs.

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @RotoLance: I think it was close enough to make a case for both. Maybe I’ll be more specific next season, but if C.J. Anderson is a fantasy MVP, I could see him being in the discussion for regular MVP.

  3. nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, reposting last night’s comment with a little more info. (thanks to Lance though for the insight!)

    QB: Bortles, A Smith (start 2)
    RB: Pederson, Charles, Blue, McFadden (start 2)
    WR: Cooks, Fitzgerald, Wheaton, Cruz, Lafell, B Coleman, Funchess (start 2)
    Flex: Lacy
    TE: Walker
    Def: Arizona
    (10 team, .5 ppr)

    Was offered Brees and Randle for Charles. take it?

    I missed my auction draft, yeah I know….QB’s are hot commodities due to scoring: 6pts td, .5 comp, -1.5 incomp, 1 pt 25 yrds passing and another pt at 300, 350, 400, rushing and receiving pts at 100, 150, 200)

    • nightpandas says:
      (link)

      @nightpandas: per Lance’s note, the yahoo trade evaluator says the Brees side is a no brainer but it is also overvaluing Randle

      • Sam says:
        (link)

        @nightpandas: I wouldn’t want Randle.. who are his WRs?

        As a side, Charles is a 1st rounder while, in your socring, Brees is at best a 4th.. I would want a low tier 1 high tier 2 WR wi Brees to deal Charles. Brees may not be as good as in previous years this season.

        • Nightpandas says:
          (link)

          @Sam: his Wr are not much better than mine…

          Adams, Steve Smith, Landry, Wallace

          • RotoLance

            RotoLance says:
            (link)

            @Nightpandas: I don’t know what kind of terms you are on with the other manager but you could ask him to send you a deal of just Brees for Charles straight up. That would allow you to use the “trade evaluator” without it being biased by the exaggerated Randle impact of the trade. You wouldn’t accept it, it wold be just to help you evaluate it.

            Honestly I think it’s a difficult trade for anyone to evaluate. Anyone that can tell you they can give you a good evaluation of this trade had better have a ton of 2QB league experience, otherwise he’s/she’s just wrong in my opinion.

            • RotoLance

              RotoLance says:
              (link)

              @RotoLance: I actually tend to agree with Jay though, that it’s better to hold off.

              • Sam says:
                (link)

                @RotoLance: RL, I agree and def do not have much in the way of experience with 2 QB leagues.. what I have read all over the online world and hear on XM’s fantasy radio is that QB’s values are substantially increased in said leagues (which seems obvious). I think the QB scoring that NP mentioned only adds credence to that notion.

                Based on NP’s team makeup, I think QB is a pretty glaring issue, while RB is very strong (Lacey, Petreson (I am assuming you meant AP, and not Joc, though given his second half, he might as well give football a shot this fall), Charles).

                Personally, I like Lacey and Peterson better than Charles and think that Brees, while I don’t like him this year and haven’t targetted him anywhere, is a huge upgrade over Bortles and Smith.

                I would think that Brees and Adams for JC would do it for me. Adams can be your WR2 after Cooks and then your flex can be decided on a weekly basis among Blue, DMC, Fitz, Wheaton, Cruz, Coleman, Funchess.

                As a side, Lafell is probably droppable given he’s out for so long.. obviously dependent on whats on the wire.

        • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
          (link)

          @Sam: brees is and will get drafted higher than 4th round in 2 QB league, not saying do the trade.

    Hello Jay,
    Just finished my draft. Please review my team.

    Do you see somewhere I can upgrade or maybe trade?

    Thanks,

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chris: I think it’s a pretty good team, no real area to upgrade. I would drop Davis for a bit more RB depth if it’s out there though.

  5. Comatose says:

    I have Jeremy Hill and Gio in one league. Was just offered Abdullah for Gio. I like Abdullah better, but like handcuffing Hill with Gio. Any thoughts?

          @Comatose: This is the perfect trade now.

  6. Packers says:
    (link)

    Jay, not sure if I should tweak my roster. 12 team 1 pt ppr. I had the 11th pick. 2 qb league because of the super flex. Colston and R.Bush can be had. My RB are CJ, Ivory,Woodhead and J.Bell. start two. My WR are Julio, Garcon,Cooper, Hurns,K.Wright and B. Coleman. Start 3 plus a 4th in the flex spot. Do you see an upgrade over someone I have? I guess I was wondering Colston or Bush over Coleman. Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Packers: Naw, I’d want Coleman there. I don’t think Colston is going to have a big year.

    What side Ya got if remaining team irrelevant?

      @Forthewin: Morris, Jeffery, Marshall side for me

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Forthewin: Morris side slightly, but it’s much closer because of Alshon’s injury status.

  8. 2qbn says:
    (link)

    I was aware of Jay’s propensity to sip on some frosty alcoholic beverage from time to time. But his pick of the Chargers winning it all is him spiking his Kool-Aid with Tequila, taking the worm and grinding it up, then sniffing it through his nose. In other words, just another Tuesday.

  9. BambooLounge says:
    (link)

    Have my first half-point PPR keeper draft tonight. In case an update doesn’t go up today, any big movers I should be aware of? I’m guessing Shady is lower than 20 now with all the injury news?

    Worried about Alshon at all?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @BambooLounge: Yeah, I would avoid both. At this point, I’d want Shady more than Alshon just because we actually know what’s going on there. John Fox is doing his best BB impersonation.

  10. Clint says:
    (link)

    I rarely do this but was wondering what you think of my 8 team 1.5pt/ppr keeper league squad (kept 5 from last year & likely to add one or two this season) I just drafted:

    QB: Rodgers
    RB: Miller
    WR1: Julio
    WR2: Megatron
    R/W/T: R. Cobb
    QB/R/W/T: Gronk
    K: Parkey
    Bench: M. Ryan, S. Bradford, A. Foster, G. Olsen, B. Cooks, J. Matthews
    NA: L. Bell
    DL: C. Jones
    LB: CJ Mosley
    DB: R. Jones
    Team D/ST: TBD once L. Bell can be moved to NA slot (plan on streaming since only points allowed counts in our D/ST scoring system)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Clint: Hey Clint, yeah, I think it’s just fine. Good receivers, Bell coming back, solid bench. I might start two QB’s though…

      • Clint says:
        (link)

        @Jay:
        I was debating about that. Points/TD is 5 for QB’s, 6 for everyone else. When I looked at the top 20 at the QB Flex from 2014, it broke down into 11 WR/TE’s, 7 QB’s, and 3 RB’s so I figured a WR or TE was a tad more valuable there if I can figure out where the breaking point between the two positions is. I’d assume most weeks Gronk is going to outscore a guy like Bradford or Ryan but wasn’t sure if I’m looking at it correctly.

        • Clint says:
          (link)

          @Clint:
          And the yards/pt is 40 for QB, 20 for everyone else if that tips the scales one way or the other.

        • Clint says:
          (link)

          @Clint:

    WR – D. Thomas, Evans, Royal, Wheaton, Garcon, T. Williams
    TE – D. Walker

    in a weird spot with novak. he might get NO kicking job, and would be worth keeping as he is a good kicker. lambo was drafted. franks/janikowski/mcmanus not owned. i have 4 waiver claims, with 2 of importance over kicker.
    1. upgrading LB spot
    2. upgrading S spot
    3. upgrading kicker spot
    4. stashing n.paul to make my WAS player minimums
    5. after stash upgrading my DE spot (i’ll have dropped the backup DE to stash paul first)

    Novak might get the NO job, but my waivers go off in around 8-10 or so hours. Try to waiver all/some/none of Mcmanus/Franks/Janikowski or wait and see on Novak. I run the risk of having to use one of myers, brindza, gould, succop or coons if Novak doesn’t get that job or another one. The NFL is finally figuring out what fantasy experts in baseball/football have known for years, paying somebody league min is akin to only drafting kickers in last round (or catchers late), and is pretty much the best idea. Resources are more valuable elsewhere.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: He might do really well in a dome. The waivers are so close though, makes me a bit nervous. Deep down, I feel like he won’t want that job, for what it’s worth. I’d say go for a backup plan.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

    Cj Anderson
    Mark Ingram
    Julio jones
    Jarvis Landry
    Andre Johnson
    Flex: Julian Edelman
    Tight end: Larry Donnel (I’m gonna stream until Antonio gates returns. should I pick up Jordan reed, Austin Jenkins, or Benjamin Watson) week 1 or am I cool?

    Bench: ryan Mathews, woodhead, Antonio gates, Darren sproles, Shane Vereen
    I’m gonna drop sproles for Hillman once he’s off waivers to handcuff Anderson is that a good idea?
    Any other comments or concerns? I realize I don’t have any receivers on my bench should I change that with the best available on the WW?
    If so, who needs to go?
    Thanks, mah knee grow

      @Steven: Congrats! I think Donnell is fine there. Not sure what else to do with the roster, so that’s a good sign right now.

    I traded LEGARRETTE Blount for Todd Gurley Good or bad trade

    • Steven says:

      @Dom B:

      All depends on gurleys health and his usage/effectiveness when he comes back.Blount is no lock to dominate carries but you know the pats backfield. Gurley could also be out until October so hopefully you got RB depth. Neither are super strong in ppr

      @Dom B: I’d say good. I like Gurley better, but he’s more of a long term option.

    14 team PPR, only start 2 RB’s….I like my RB’s or so I thought I did…Miller, McCoy, Spiller, Johnson (AZ).

    Would you trade away D. Johnson-AZ to acquire Karlos Williams as a handcuff? Or just hope that McCoy can stay healthy?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Mike: I’d hold. I’m slightly concerned with McCoy, but I think you’ll be okay.

    Duke Johnson or David Johnson?

    • Steven says:

      @Robert:

    ok, did some fantasy pros mocks (and those mocks are generally smarter than most people you’ll see in mocks, and it doesn’t quit mid draft, nor trolls, and you can take breaks). which of these seem best? half PPR, start 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 flex (can be TE). Draft out of 2 spot. 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 Flex. 2 QB
    1. (2 QB’s early, RB first, non top TE)
    QB- Rodgers, Tannehill (3rd round), Foles (or fitz, mccown)
    RB- Hill,Latavius, Ivory, Foster, Knile D
    WR – Sanders, A. Robinson, Watkins, T.Will, GreenBeck, Randle
    TE Cameron

    2. (2 QB’s early, RB first, great TE, weak RB)
    QB- Rodgers, Tannehill, Foles (or fitz/mccown)
    RB- Hill, Latavius, Arian F, Coleman (or Woodhead), Duke John (or Knile D)
    WR – Sanders, Robinson (or Watkins), Wright (or T.Will, Funchess, T.Smith), D.Parker, Dorsett, Randle
    TE Olsen or Kelce (gotta go youth though i’d think)

    3. (2 QB’s early, WR first, fairly weak RB, no way to go high TE)
    QB- Rodgers, Tannehill, 1 of Foles/Carr (or Fitz/McCown at worst)
    RB -Miller, Ingram, Yeldon, 1 of (Blount, Jennings, Coleman, Vereen, Crowell, Duke Johnson,Woodhead), D.Robinson
    WR -Green , Watkins, Robinson,T.Will, Stills, Dorsett
    TE- Cameron (or Ertz/Witten)

    These next ones are where i gamble on not going QB #2 in 2nd or 3rd round
    4. (TE early, VORP says do Megatron)
    QB Rodgers, Rivers (or Bridgewater), Taylor
    RB -Hill, Ingram, Randle (or Foster), Gio B (or Jennings), Knile D
    WR -Megatron, A.Robinson, T.Smith, Stills,Coleman (or Perriman),White (if he’s there or boring Mal Floyd, Baldwin, Randle)
    TE Olsen

    5. (TE later)
    QB Rodgers, Bridgewater (possibly Rivers)
    RB Miller, Morris, Hyde, J.Bell, F.Jackson (or D.Robinson)
    WR – Megatron, Edelman, T.Smith, Quick, Parker (T.Will), K.White (hard to tell against real people if him/nelson/benjamin are still around though)
    TE Bennett

    Original plan was to go with QB #2 early (tannehill), but wanted to see what team would likely look like with other plan. Which looks best now?

    How early to draft k.white/nelson/benjamin? i’ve never done one of these from scratch dynasties. We have 2 IR spots.

        @Jay: really. interesting. that complicates things, as while fantasy pros bots do draft smart, i don’t know if rivers/bridgewater are really around at pick 47 (teams 4 and 5 assume that). I know i can get 1 of tannehill/rivers/bridgewater at pick 26 for sure (teams 1-3). One short term problem for Rivers/Rodgers is that they have the same bye, so i’d be screwed with 1 QB that week. It’s of course possible Luck falls to pick 2 overall, but i doubt it. The strangest thing is that teams 1 and 2 don’t have that much better RB than team 3 (team 3 went Green, and had to wait till pick 47 to get first RB, which will be Miller/Ingram/Morris)

      @utube: I think Kaep, but I really want to say Taylor here. I think he does really well against the Colts this week…
