“ Winners never quit and quitters never win.” (Vince Lombardi)
We’re now in the final week of the regular season with a lot of teams fighting for the last spot of the playoffs. This is my first season playing against our Razzball readers and friends, and I’m enthusiastic about the great level across all the leagues. The best part of the season is coming, but first an electrifying last week. Good luck guys!
Here is how the action went down in Week 20 across our 12 RCL Leagues:

Rudy has been hard at work in the lab. His latest creation? DAILY LINEUPS PAGE. So good. So smooth. So helpful. He decided to go with the Sonny Bono red tint, while I prefer the blue tint. What say you?
Experts League: With his 7-2 victory, Tarch Tadness is mathematically the winner of the regular season. Dynasty Deep Dive and Krishna Ligas made a big jump for playoff contention, both winning 7-2. Dream Killers added Jimmy Butler, as a return within the 4-6 week window would give him the opportunity to play the fantasy playoffs. Tarch Tadness acquired Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic, who are both fifth-round values over the last two weeks.
Straight Cash Homie: Like in our expert league, Pikachu has locked up the regular season title. There are only two places remaining for the playoffs, with Connor’s Cool Team well positioned for the next round. Connor’s Cool Team acquired George Hill, who remains a solid fantasy option, but isn’t considered a must-own at this point.
Straight Cash Homie 2: Akeem’s Dream Team won 7-1 over Slack Jawed-Daps. Akeem’s Dream Team, Brow’s full 82?, jasper’s Team, and Cronos Black Metal will fight for the top two places. porno4mumu added Jakob Poeltl.
Straight Cash Homie 3: SON won 6-3 over Muggsy Bollers, and Boogie’s Low Ceiling 7-2 over Vengeful Hoopdies. These were the most interesting results. Only one remaining spot for the playoffs. Will it be Klark Shark, The KAT’s Meow, or Muggsy Bollers? Well done Onions! adding Rudy Gay, and The KAT’s Meow adding Jakob Poeltl for Wilson Chandler.
Straight Cash Homie 4: SON has been doing great work lately with four victories out of the last five, and is now only one point out of the playoffs. My team, TonyRP, jumped to third place, and this week will try to keep it against Matokie Slaughter, who is fighting for the top position. peter’s Fine Team dominated with an 8-1 victory. In the league with fewer moves, get picky with it added Milos Teodosic.
Straight Cash Homie 5: In a high voltage duel at the top, Olympic Team beat NYKnicks for an adjusted 5-3-1. SCH5-Celestial Being made a major step for the playoffs by winning 7-2. Ala Kings added Josh Jackson. That’s great! but dropping Mario Hezonja is less wonderful. Klark Shark acquired Skal Labissiere.
Straight Cash Homie 6: Good victory by My curry too spicy! against the leader, TonyRP 4, who is now in solid sixth place. SON, with three wins in a row, jumps to fourth place. SON dropped Kent Bazemore and Kraft Dunk’d added Brook Lopez. My team, TonyRP 4, added Jayson Tatum, who has cooled off a tad from his tremendous start, topping a second-round value for a few months, but is still a must-own player.
RAZZblueBALLS: GasOl(d) Anthem wants first place, as he beat Hals’s Team. With eight teams fighting for four places, there will be blood this week. Matokie Slaughter added Danny Green, a member of the 1/1/1 club.
BBQ Mousetrap: In a duel at the top between the top two teams, More Sonics Please is defeated Durrant me a Title 6-3. One of the keys was Lonzo Ball, a first-round value in the last week averaging 3.7 3pts, 3.3 stls, 6.7 rebs, and 7.7 asts. More Sonics Please added J.J. Barea, Skal Labissiere, and Wilson Chandler. Durrant me a Title added Montrezl Harrell, Tyler Johnson, and Allen Crabbe. My team, TonyRP 3, acquired Eric Gordon.
Italy vs Razzball: Chicaghiamo Addosso won 8-1 and is now one point behind the leader, Stuck in Saigon 2, who won 5-4. Here we have the last trade of the season, as Larry Nance Jr. was traded to The Wakefield Case, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Michael Beasley went to Chicaghiamo Addosso. Nance Jr. is an interesting player without Kevin Love, but I prefer the solid Hollis-Jefferson. I acquired Marcin Gortat, who averaged 7.7 pts, 7.4 rebs, 2.7 asts, 0.7 stls, and 0.6 blks in February. That’s a tenth-round value without FT%.
No Punt Intended: If you win 7-2 against one of the strongest teams throughout the Razzball leagues in Newbie, surely you will have the best team of the week, and that’s Dicks Out 4 Harambe, with Karl-Anthony Towns, Lonzo Ball, and Devin Booker. In a state of grace, he’s invincible. Dicks Out 4 Harambe will be stronger with Josh Jackson, who is averaging 17.8 pts, 6.4 rebs, 1.0 blks, and 0.9 stls over the last month.
Dynasty Deep Dive: Evil Empire won 7-2 against Darko’s Darlings. ELITE was too much for TonyRP 5, but my team holds onto second place. With only one spot for the playoffs, Evil Empire and Bareaking Bad will fight for that place. Bareaking Bad added Jakob Poeltl. Over the last two weeks, is averaging an amazing 2.5 blks, 1.3 stls, 71.4 FG%, and 83.3 FT%. My team, TonyRP 5, bought Mario Hezonja.
