“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” (Benjamin Franklin)
Another week of fantasy, with the most exciting games so far this season. This week I learned how much you can you miss a player. I miss you Kawhi Leonard. I have Kawhi on three teams, one being an RCL, and they are my worst teams of all time. Curious.
I’m amazed by the quality of the owners in the RCLs. In our twelve leagues, some are more difficult than others, but the average level is very high. This week, I looked at the biggest surprise players this season, where they were drafted in RCLs, and compared that with the average draft position in general.
|Player||Actual Ranking||General ADP||Razzball ADP||Highest position at Razzball||Lowest position at Razzball|
|T.Evans||35||152||142||127||Waiver x 8|
|J.Tatum||36||128||137||87||Waiver x 3|
|D.Mitchell||40||184||140||121||Waiver x 5|
|L.Markkanen||50||148||140||132||Waiver x 6|
Here is how the action went down in Week 12 across our 12 RCL Leagues:

Experts League: Tarch Tadness, Dynasty Deep Dive, and Dream Killers continue to lead and all posted victories. Dynasty Deep Dive was the best team last week, as Devin Booker and Kyle Lowry performed well. Great move by Tarch Tadness adding Jabari Parker and Bismack Biyombo. Over the last 11 games he’s been a top 30 player. ‘Bron Legacy added Danny Green and Mel added Kyle Andersson. With Kawhi Leonard out indefinitely, both players gain fantasy appeal with high upside in steals, 3 points, and blocks.
Straight Cash Homie 2: Brows’s full 82? jumps to second place with a victory 7-2, but Cronos Black Metal won again and maintains the overall top spot. As for free agent acquisitions, porno4mumu added Milos Teodosic, while Slapnuts acquired Danny Green.
Straight Cash Homie 3: Come Back shows signs of life with a crushing victory over Klark Shark. With the return of Hassan Whiteside and the fabulous play of Jrue Holiday, he has a good team now. White Mamba, who was tired of waiting for Brook Lopez, dropped him and added Derrick Favors. With Gobert back, he can lose some value, but he’s still a top 80 value.
Straight Cash Homie 4: Few surprises this week, but Victory DirtWolves suffered a painful defeat against Chuck’s Swell Team. Yes, he has Kawhi Leonard. With the return of James Harden, SCH4-Celestial Being dropped Gerald Green and added Kelly Oubre Jr, one of the surprises of the season. He’s averaging 16.3 points and 4.7 rebounds over the past seven games.
Straight Cash Homie 5: Hals’s Team, NYKnicks, Klark Shark won their respective matches. With the unexpected defeats of Baetski’s Team and SON, Ala Kings still clutches to dreams of making the playoff. SCH5-Celestial Being added JJ Redick. He’s a top 70 value this season, averaging 2.7 3pts, 17.3 pts, and 94.6 % from the line. The most recent report indicates Redick will miss around two weeks before being reevaluated.
Straight Cash Homie 6: SON is doing good work with seven wins out of eight. He has the number one fantasy player for last month, Karl-Anthony Towns, averaging 1.7 3pts, 19.3 pts, 12.9 rebs, and 2.0 blks during that span.
RAZZblueBALLS: GasOl(d) Anthem and Mamba lost, but they maintain the top two positions. The eleventh team (Connor’s Team) is only four points from playoff position.
BBQ Mousetrap: More Sonics Please won 8-1 over KJ candies, and is now the overall leader. My team TonyRP 3 won in a tough match against Steph Infection. Our team of the week Durrant me a Title is in third place.
Italy vs Razzball: Stuck in Saigon 2 is the overall leader and won 7-1. ! is second and The Wakefield Case third. I added Delon Wright to my team. Over the last month, he has posted great percentages (49.6 FG% and 88.5 FT%) with 1.0 3pts, 1.2 stls, and 0.9 blks. His ability to fill so many stats makes him an interesting player.
No Punt Intended: With a 7-2 victory, Dicks Out 4 Harambe is our new overall leader. He has Karl-Anthony Towns, Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe. The best purchases this week were Bismack Biyombo (Newbie) and Wayne Ellington (effi’s Peerless Team).
Dynasty Deep Dive: Union Olimpija defeated Big Baller Brand, which allowed my team TonyRP 5 to take over the overall lead. Evil Empire bought Kelly Oubre Jr. and DunkercornApocalypse added Marvin Williams.
