“If you have everything under control, you’re not moving fast enough.” (Mario Andretti)

We’re now in Week Four, but the speed of the events has been surprisingly rapid. Without counting injuries, this may be a great opportunity to buy low or sell high.

DeMarcus Cousins with 2.4 3pts, 1.9 stl, 1.9 blk, 28.6 points, and 13.7  rebounds is an incredible line, but perhaps unsustainable. More incredible are the Stranger Things in FT so far this season. Andre Drummond shooting 75% and Clint Capela 78% from the line. Nobody would’ve believed that in August.

Kristaps Porzingis is now a first-round player, a position that he looks ready to maintain for the remainder of the year, and the key to our team of the week. Through nine games he is averaging 30.2 points, 1.7 threes, 7.8 rebounds, 2.2 blocks, and strong 82.6% in FT.

On the other side, Jimmy Butler is a great buy low candidate, as his owners are probably impatient right now. Butler said he’s focusing on winning, not his own statistics, and Thibodeau said the scoring will come as he gets more comfortable with the team. Other players on the buy low side are Kyle Lowry, Eric Bledsoe, Paul Millsap and Gorgui Dieng.

And now the highlights from Week 3 in the RCLs:

The Razzball Commenter Leagues entered into the second week with a lot of interesting matches. Injuries once again played a dramatic role, but that’s a part of the game. Managing those along with navigating the waiver wire were the keys to staying alive and dominating.

Here is how the action went down in week 2 across our 12 RCL Leagues:

Hello guys, the RCL season is back!!

The first week of the season is always difficult, but this one can be summarized in three words: injury, injury, and injury. If you have Chris Paul, Kawhi Leonard and, especially, Gordon Hayward and Jeremy Lin, this is a tough start. With the addition of a big number of players with troubles like Miles Turner, Milos Teodosic, Jonas Valanciunas, and boxing time in Chicago.

Rosters with those players have suffered this week, making the start to the season a difficult one. As much as statistical analysis has advanced in the game of fantasy, luck still remains a key component.

Otherwise, those blessed with extraterrestial performances from Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry,or Anthony Davis have done well:

Hello everybody. I am TonyRP, one of the new fantasy writers at Razzball. I love fantasy and writing about this great game. For my first post, I am going to analyze one of my RCL teams. This team was drafted in the Straight Cash Homie 4 league. This league consists of some other Razzball writers and a host of other skilled players. Going forward, I will be recapping all the RCL leagues and keep you abreast of the hot and heavy action.

It’s baaaaaaaaack. I know the wait was excrutiating. The eye fatigue from those countless hours staring into the digital dojo. The clicks. Oh, the millions of clicks on the mouse button that turned you into a one-armed Popeye. What was it all for?… <in a voice that echoes and decreases in volume each time the phrase is repeated> What was it all for?…What was it all for?….

The chance to be the best of the best of course!

I’ve been told that the RCLs are populated with some of the sharpest fantasy basketball minds in the land. Do you have what it takes?

1617-rcl-logoIt’s time to hand out some hardware!  Drop the confetti, grab your Star Wars gold medallions, polish off R2D2, and queue the trumpets, because…  The UNC Tar Heels are National Champions!  Wooooooo!  Man, what a season from the Heels… My terrible bracket in the Razzball Pool had the final game right, so I still ended respectable!  More on that later…

Anywho (as my ADD takes over and buries the lead), the 2016-17 RCL Champion is…  The Doc is In!  Besting the WE-GOT-A-TROPHY! with a 117-52-2 regular season record, the Doc got a trophy indeed!  Led by the all-around superstars of Kawhi Leonard, Otto Porter, and of course the tripdub machine Elfrid Payton, the Doc will forever live in infamy, and is our newest member of the RCL Hall of Fame!  Long live The Doc!

With the first place finish (as detailed in the Sign-Ups post), The Doc will get a $50 Amazon gift card, plus an amazing Shaming Video that we’ll work out.  Ugh, I dunno if I’m ready for this again!  And not to be overlooked, 2nd overall finisher A Very Solid Team in the Philzilla’s Pac Coast Razzer league has secured a $20 Amazon gift card.  Both you guys reach out to me at [email protected] to claim your prizes, and Doc, go easy on me with the eating challenge ideas!

Be sure and check back with us in September, for your shot to join legends High as Greg Kite, Akron LebronsNick is Razzy, and now The Doc is In for your shot at RCL infamy in 2017-18!

You can take a final look at the RCL standings updated on our Standings Page, and here’s a breakdown of all of our 23 RCL Champs, in order of how they finished by reg. season record:

It’s the most.  Wonderful.  Time.  Of the year!  Yeah, some legit winter wonderland going on up north, sheesh you guys must be excited to be snowed in and watch nothing but basketball the next few nights!

With the playoffs abreast, it’s time to start thinking about those payouts and get paid that money!

Hah, I can’t stop laughing at that silly GIF!  Effin hilarious.  And by money, I mean some Amazon gift cards and another YouTube shaming video, but you can’t really put a price on the latter!

With the regular season now in the books, the 2016-17 RCL Master Standings Table table is now locked in place as we play out the postseason.  Despite a hell of a final push from The Doc is In – going 22-5 over the final 3 weeks – Big Baby’s Lovechild secured the #1 spot through the regular season by a mere half point.  What a close race!  But it’s of course anyone’s game, as the top teams still need to secure their league championship to win the overall title.  So check out where your squads stacked up in the master standings, and here’s some highlights across our 23 RCL Leagues:

See, this is how to use the All-Star Break, as catch up time! No, not ketchup time, although ketchup is delicious. I hate that ketchup has become a poster child of the worst condiments you can use, it’s f-in’ delicious! Although, as you’ll see in a second, it’s not like I’m a champion of healthy eating!

As promised – just a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit late – 2015-16 RCL Champion Nick is Razzy gets their own food-shaming video! While it wasn’t quite as painful as the hot wings challenge, my stomach and system took a little over a day to re-calibrate haha. Congrats again Nick, here ya go!

To the current RCLs, and oh boy, more JB shaming… Not my finest week, that’s for sure! Big Baby’s Lovechild beat me 7-1-1 to move to 100-42-2 (the first RCL team to top 100 wins), moves to a whopping 7-point lead in RCL points, and became one of only two RCL teams to secure a playoff spot. Shame! Shame, JB, shame! To be fair, a lot came down to the final Sunday games! I’ll whine more below…

We’re back, RCLlers, with another update in the best fan leagues around!  So yesterday, I ate an obscene amount of food, and the only other time recently I’ve felt this awful the next day (after being an absolute fatty), was when I did the 15-16 eating challenge!  Yes, Nick is Razzy, the challenge has been completed, we’re just in post-production.  Which isn’t a euphemism for digestion, FYI!  So keep a lookout for that video to be out soon.

For our current season, everyone is now allowed to throw garbage at Slim and I!  We’ve been unable to curtail the epic year thus far from Big Baby’s Lovechild in our JB vs. Slim league, who has moved to 93-41-1 good for 187 RCL points.  Stupid Glen Davis Jr., go back to being a middling role player!  Hopefully we can squash this egregious outrage and disallow someone from one of our leagues from winning this thing!

RCL Nation! So much has gone on since we last checked in! Major injuries to highly drafted guys, we know who is going to be in the Super Bowl, we have a new US President… The world just never stops turning!

Speaking on turning, mannnn I need a few of my RCL teams on the fringes to start turning around, dammit! Losing Chris Paul in one and Pau Gasol/Rudy Gay in another has NOT been a fun week… Russia hacked my RCL rosters, I’m WikiLeaking water over here!

But weathering all the proverbial storms out there, is our current RCL leader in first place. He’s in…? He’s innnnn….? That’s right, The Doc is In! With a record of 81-34-2 and 164 RCL points, the Doc is in command, that’s for sure! So it’s up to the rest of the WE-GOT-A-TROPHY! league to put an end to this clinical madness!
