Week 5 has wrapped up, with yet another shake-up atop the REL standings. Kap retakes his throne, which is fitting because we’re friends from college and he wore the Burger King costume for Halloween once. With the tights and everything! Friggin skinny legs over there looked like a tranny King! I keed, I keed, nice to see you leading the league and quieting Slim a little bit… I can tell Slim is mad, because I’m writing this intro without his weekly recap coming in right away. Last week, I think I got it at 4:00 AM as he was unable to sleep without sending it ASAP! Hopefully all you deep dynasty players out there had a good week, and here’s how week 5 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
4 weeks in = we’re roughly 20% through the fantasy regular season! Crazy that we’re about that far already… Where has the time gone?! While 4 weeks does start giving you a sample of how your teams are doing, it’s also good to keep in mind your schedule. I always play the top teams early in the REL, then get the rebuilding teams in the second half. So before you start selling everything, be sure and check to standings and maybe the schedule just hasn’t been forever in your favor. Here’s how week 4 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 3 is in the books, and I gotta say, looking at this week’s FAAB bids is why I love the weekly REL recaps. Several of the awarded players were “deep league” mentions in this morning’s daily notes, and can be a great way to keep an eye on the emerging guys from the wire a week or two earlier than 12ers. Since I prematurely shot my wad on what hopefully ISN’T a dry run, I have a mess on my hands! And the Elites didn’t let any of the big names fall through the cracks. Lewis Black couldn’t catch it! Here’s how week 3 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Two weeks into our deep dynasties, and man, it’s tough after a loss not to go into immediate SELL NOW mode! But if you felt good about your roster, it’s not the time to do anything rash. Speaking of rashes, somebody get Terrence Jones some ointment for that eye! I don’t own him in the REL, but eesh, defending him in comments has been a chore! Stay true with your dynasty squads, and don’t make any of your rebuilding moves yet either. Teams up top feel invisible (cough, Slim), and teams in the middle are already contemplating selling (cough, me) as well. I know better, but it’s frustrating… Anyway, here’s how week 2 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
Week 1 is in the books! It’s great to be officially into the grind of the season, emphasis on grind after I had to completely remake the back end of my roster. I’m hoping it’s more like True Grit than Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Damn you Tim Burton! You will forever be dead to me for ruining a childhood favorite. He’s the movie director equivalent of Nate Robinson.
If you’re new to Razzball, we take weekly look-ins every Monday into the REL Dynasty League (link below) to track the deepest of deep wires. It’s a weekly FAAB with all pickups becoming $1 keepers, and a great way to track the wires in your deeper leagues. I hope everyone had a great first week of action in their leagues this season, and may your deep dynasties prosper!Please, blog, may I have some more?
I pounded the coffee, we live-podcasted the draft, and my hopes at the 15-16 REL title now dance in my dreams like sugarplums and Ricky Rubio’s face! My favorite basketball league, I brought my limited chips to the table then went all-in on a rookie I have to stash… Wahhhhh! Hopefully other teams like their backend roster more than I do, and with an added IL spot this year, we have some early FAAB money getting spent on the wire. Here’s how the draft and first round of FAAB went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
We all tip our caps to the Barking BassetHounds! Congratulations winning the 2014-15 Razzball Elite League, in one of the most nail-biting fantasy hoops championships I’ve ever seen. The Hounds win the second year of our deep dynasty, with titles for them and Slim last year. I feel so inadequate! At least I got further than Slim this year! Stupid Rubio… I’ll let our title contenders recap the tight matchup, which looked to go to runner-up Breaking Batum until the final games last night. Thanks again to everyone playing in the REL League, and we’re looking forward to another great season in 2015-16!Please, blog, may I have some more?
And the finals are here! Congrats to Barking BassetHounds knocking me off and Breaking Batum pulling off the upset as the 6 seed beating #2 Martyball. David vs. Goliath final! Sheesh, I was going to say I think I had a great team minus the injuries, but I would’ve been bludgeoned by both Batum and Martyball as well! My comeback this year was an illusion… “Magic tricks are what whores do for money…. OR COCAINE!” Good luck to our finalists, and here’s how the semi-finals of the REL playoffs went down in the Razzball Elite League:Please, blog, may I have some more?
The semis are here! 20 teams enter, 4 remain, and somehow I bested Slim this year! Although, he did win the title last season, and I am easily an underdog against the 1 seed… In the quarterfinals, I was able to knock off Scurry to the Left in a revenge game from a earlier regular season loss, and Breaking Batum bested Slim. After staying healthy most of the year, Slim got all his injuries late! Total flip flop on the phrase “better late than never”. Good luck to the 4 teams remaining, and here’s how the quarterfinals of the REL playoffs went down in the Razzball Elite League:Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m like a kid in the candy shop! The Playoffs have been decided, and through many strokes of luck and by the handjob of a higher force, I was able to sneak in. Four teams vied for the final three spots, with the four teams separated by a single game. It was a photo phinish! Martyball and BassetHounds grabbed the byes with Slim facing off against Breaking Batum and I’ll be against Scurry to the Left. After this week we’ll only be recapping the playoffs, so good luck to the playoff bound and it should be a fun postseason! Here’s how the rest of week 20 went down in the REL:Please, blog, may I have some more?
