It’s been a ride, folx. Some of you, you’re here because of completionism. You stopped by every other week and ya just gotta finish out the season, even though you’re out of the playoffs now. Others — you’re still fighting for the championship. What can I say — if you show up, I’m here to help. So let’s jump in and see what we can do to help you bring home the trophy.
Friends — this is my last article for the 2021 fantasy football season. For those that are regulars, you know that I’m heading over to Razzball Baseball to talk pitchers, and my first article on Shohei Ohtani is already in the hopper, just ready for that 2nd week in January debut. Razzball Football will continue with off-season content, so please do hang around and chat with us about the players you like and all the stats you want to see in 2022.
Much like last week, I’m going to simply be present here to answer comments. Donkey Teeth will take the last Game Day of the year to help you with those championship teams, and to be honest, that’s probably for the best. I think he’s being kind of mum about it, but DT’s going head-to-head with a legend on NFC right now and — I don’t want to jinx anything — but DT’s in the lead. Hopefully, he can help your teams claim that championship as well.
I suppose it’s time for my own industry league wrap-up: Blah. Most of my teams were destroyed in the first half of the season due to injuries. I’m sitting in 8th place with an outside chance at 6th place in the DataForce Charity League, and I’m hoping to bury Jake Ciely this week if I can somehow summon a massive game from AJ Brown. I checked out of the RazzBowl after the first round of the playoffs thanks to having zero RB remaining on my roster. My FTN team finished about .500 with — again — no healthy RBs remaining on the roster. Another .500 finish in a league comprised mostly of QBList/RotoBaller members. Can you guess what happened there? In an eliminator with Andy Behrens of Yahoo, I managed to hang on until I was the fifth team from the end. Lastly, a bottom-third overall finish in DFS Wars, although I was playing more for big days than playing an overall cash method. I did claim some top weekly finishes in DFS Wars, which is what I wanted. I’d rather claim a victory than finish 4th overall every week but without a win.
Part of my concern for my meh performance in 2021 was that I often resorted to Hero RB builds; I abandoned my own suggestions to focus on Robust RB, and this year that particularly hurt me. Next year — maybe next year — I’ll follow my advice.
Thanks so much for following along this season, and I look forward to chatting with you in 2022!
