Each week I’ll be spending countless hours flipping coins in order to determine an order for my weekly rankings which will be published bright and early each Thursday morning. It’s an elaborate round-robin coinflipping system for each position. Wide receivers alone take me a full Monday worth of coin flips. And I’m currently in the process of filing for workers comp due to carpal tunnel. But it’s well worth it, knowing that you, the loyal Razzball reader, appreciate my pain and sweat. Just so you know you can trust me, here’s how my coin flipping system stacked up against all of the other 149 industry analysts competing against me in the 2020 Fantasy Pros Weekly Ranking Competition:

Anyway, here’s my week 17 rankings for half PPR 2021 fantasy football that will be frequently updated by coin flip up until kickoff:

Saw your flex rankings. Gronk and Mitchell are close. If you had Brady would you use gronk at flex over Mitchell? Gronk was surprisingly not targeted much last week. If Mitchell returns the week, his workload concerns me. Lance is looking like he will start. Then we habe deebo Samuel and Wilson. Mitchell was used as the clear primary rb before he got hurt again but that was 4 weeks ago. .5 por. Thanks

Thanks and based on your rankings, you start bears defense over phi? Pts allowed, 2pt per sack and turnovers. I find it hard to pick up the bears defense because their offense has been so bad. Eagles def didn’t do much against wash 2 weeks ago though. Ten is another option seeing how bad the o lin is for Mia. I really need to hit on the defense this week and know it is so random sometimes.

And in my experience home teams are generally the better play when you habe non elite defenses and stream. That and luck of course.

Isn’t it great making it to the championship game, and having the hardest roster decisions of the season?
I’ve made it here on the backs of my QB’s (superflex league) Allen and A-A-Ron
I have had to suffer with Barkley the past few weeks, but Swift looks to be back this week.
I am tempted to go with the high upside Swift, matchup looks good. Even the Bears should be able to shut down the Giants sputtering offense, right?

My WR’s are weak AF. Kelce is the stud pass catcher.
Aiyuk, McClaurin, and Lockett are in my starting roster now.
Would you look to replace any of those guys with Bateman or a Bills WR not named Diggs?
Appreciate the content my man, and I can’t wait to see Rodgers leave the NFC North.

Yo DTvfirst off thanks for all your help this season. Between the articles and responding to all of my questions you played a part of me getting to the chip so thanks again and I will be bothering you next year for sure. Now to the important stuff. Please choose 1 RB and 1FLEX for PPR from Najee Harris, Ronald Jones, Edmonds, Darrel Williams, Eli Mitchell and Jamar Chase. I know a lot can change from now to Sunday so hopefully I can ask you again Saturday night or Sunday morning. But who you got right now?

Hwy DT…It’s been a good year and I’ve been trying not to bother people with a lot of weedsy questions, but my teams with J Taylor/Kittle/Locket in their starting lineups kicked butt all year and then faded last week, so I’ve got some teams in finals with luck + streaming and decisions to make. Could use some advice…

#1 – Standard, all TDs 6 pts, one transaction left under limit, no TE (ignoring DST/K):
Currently starting: J Allen, Higgins, Waddle, Montgomery, Rojo, Deebo (flex)
Bench WRs: Lockett, E Moore (COVID)
Bench RBs: A Gibson, J Williams, R Stevenson…could pick Darrell Williams off waivers

#2 – 1/2ppr, 2WR/1RB/1TE/2FLEX (ignoring DST/K):
Currently starting: K Murray, J Jefferson, Waddle, Kamara, Kelce, Michell/Wilson (whoever plays), Scott/Howard (whoever plays/coin flip??)
Bench WRs: DJ Moore, Mooney, G Davis
Bench Others: Ingram, D Schultz

Would you make any changes…and can you do better than a coin flip on Scott/Howard if they both play?

Thanks, man! And Happy New Year!

Speaking of updating rankings – i don’t know if Diontae is top 10 – i don’t think he’s paid off top 10 WR numbers in like a month.. Amon-Ra St. Brown has outplayed him the past 3 weeks.

I’m leaning Deebo, Waddle, and St. Brown, but if this really is Big Ben’s final home game – he might YOLO things

Howdy DT! With the news of cousins out where do you now put packers D? No cousins , no thielin . I know cook, mattison & Jefferson are there but a backup QB in what’s supposed to be the coldest game (around 5 degrees at kickoff but I’m sure it’ll be colder)

Looks like AB is a GTD, if he’s out I’ll have to pivot to mclaurin available

WRs are
Braxton Berrios home vs bucs
People’s Jones @ Pitt
Nico Collins @ SF
Ray ray mccloud vs browns
Perriman @ jets (if AB is out)

Thanks man & thanks for all the tips this season & Happy New Year!

Hey DT,

If Antonio Brown is out, I have to move my roster around and chose between DJ Moore, Saquan, or Jaret Patterson in flex who should I go with?

Hey DT,

Currently in flex I have Van Jefferson who seems boom or bust. Looks like Jaret Patterson may be getting a full workload and was contemplating adding and throwing him in Van’s spot. Would you do that or hold?

Appreciate your work, thank you.

Who would you roll out for the championship on defense this week? SF vs. HOU, PHI vs. WSH (no Gibson, missing starters off the OL), or GB vs. MIN (rando QB, no Thielen, frigid weather)?

Feeling pretty screwed at RB and WR too because of injuries and COVID. Which three of the following would you roll with for RB2/WR2 and Flex in half PPR?

RB2:
-Saquon
-Singletary
-Ogunbowale
-Pollard
-Boston Scott
(Jaret Patterson and Jordan Howard available free agents)

WR2:
-Aiyuk
-Devonta Smith
-Lazard
(Tyler Boyd available free agent)

Thanks, DT! Who would you flex out of the rest? I have Ogunbowale in there now, but obviously don’t feel super confident in that.

Hey man happy NY 2022!! Sorry should’ve included this on prior post – lol wasn’t thinking

I’ve been streaming @ QB all year & will continue that trend for the ‘ship

Russell Wilson home vs Detroit , it’s looking to be wet /slick as between 4 & 7 close to 100% rain & rain over night as well

Trey Lance home in SF in Levi’s stadium & supposed to be pleasant & 50’s & sunny Sunday

Tyler Huntley home in Baltimore vs Rams D. Weather between 1 & 4pm in the 20% chance of rain

Looking for upside as I’m facing Herbert, najee Harris , mixon , diggs, waddle , DJ Moore, jacobs (his flex), kittle

My lineup, QB up in air

RB1 d cook
RB2 Sony Michel

WR1 Tyreek hill
WR2 ceedee lamb
WR3 AB or mclaurin all depends on AB tomorrow prior to kickoff

TE streaming here thinking G Everett vs lions , Fant @ chargers (Denver only really having Sutton & fant as receiving options), Pat Freirmuth vs browns in potentially big bens last game at Heinz. I have Pitts but in Buffalo with the snow prob not good

My flex javonte Williams

Thanks again man!

One more for you DT. Thanks for all your help!

Injuries, COVID, long story, blah, blah…ended up in the final with the following QBs: Huntley, Lance, Hieneke.

Believe it, or not.

I assume Shanahan will continue lying to the bitter end like always…but if he isn’t lying for a change, actually plays Garoppolo, and I pass on the other two, my only available fallbacks from Lance in the late games would be Boyle and Mannion. I know that lots of fantasy industry people really, really, really, really want Lance to be a thing…but is there actually so much difference between him and Huntley this week that I should take a chance on flat-out losing with no QB at all to possibly get Lance in my lineup?

Thanks, man!

What’s up man? I asked you this question earlier in the week but like I said things have changed with guys being out. Question is PPR. Please choose 1RB and 1 Flex from Najee Harris, Ronald Jones, Chase Edmonds, Eli Mitchell ,Darrel Williams and Jamar Chase?
