Although it’s been a while since my last RCL Update, fantasy basketball has no off-weeks, or off-days for that matter. While the majority of us were enjoying the holiday season, our fantasy dedication was tested and strengthened during this time.

For the teams able to prosper in the face of adversity, I solute you, and may you be kindly rewarded with a mention in the recap.

For everyone else, it’s time to get your act into gear as we approach the halfway point in the season.

Razzball Nation!  I’m filling in for Charlie this week with a brief RCL update, mainly to express how honored I am at the RCL field this season.  Both in skill and volume!  We’re up to 22 leagues, and the competition has been mad fierce.  Slim and I have really struggled in our leagues, with neither of us with a dominating team (just yet!).  It’s still a long season, monster pickups can still be added, and a league title (or 3!) would be just fine with me.

And then to throw that magnanimity out the window, I’m only going to mainly focus on my teams!  Kanye West for president 2020!

As the race to the top of the RCL Master Standings is in full force, it is important to remember the fantasy fundamentals for the rest of us trying to catch up. With many teams experimenting with new lineup combinations, the next popular waiver wire addition can emerge at any time. For everyone looking to climb up the standings and catch the league’s elite, it begins with amassing a solid bench and collection of valuable contributors. Fantasy champions aren’t built overnight (unless you had a really good draft, in which case, congratulations!), so weeks 7-13 are just as important as weeks 1-6 in changing the trajectory of your team.

After closing the first month of the NBA season, the RCL fantasy basketball contenders are starting to separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Excellent drafting, shrewd waiver wire pickups, and attention to setting the daily lineup have characterized the beginning of the year for the league’s top tier while the rest of us are trying to play catch up. With the first quarter of the fantasy regular season in the books, it’s time to reevaluate rosters and expectations for the remainder of the year.

As the holiday season quickly approaches, it’s important to make time for family and to give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. In between the turkey and tradition, Thanksgiving doubles as one of the most significant sporting days in the nation. With professional football on the holiday dating back to 1920, it’s easy to get lost in the hype surrounding your pigskin potlucks.

While many fantasy football owners are focusing their energies on a potential playoff push, fantasy basketball owners need to continue to do the little things like setting your lineup and checking the waiver wire.

For the dedicated players, their weekly conquests are as certain as death and taxes or the 76ers and losing. As we spend the day traveling back to our families and loved ones, let’s glorify the Razzball fantasy stars of the previous week.

After a wild week of NBA action featuring a few injuries to some of fantasy’s top performers, owners are quickly trying to adjust to their league’s new equilibrium. As a Kevin Durant owner, I can personally attest to the struggle of making up for lost production while trying to stay competitive in a weekly matchup.

Despite all the planning, research, and strategy an owner can put into his team, fantasy ultimately comes down to luck, and the injury bug seemed to be biting in full force last week.

While some teams succumbed to rotten luck in week 3, the strongest teams managed to persevere to claim the top spots in the standings.

After a thrilling second week of NBA basketball, fantasy owners now have a greater understanding of their place in the league’s hierarchy. Whether you’re an owner looking to make a major overhaul to stay competitive or simply calibrating your daily lineups with fringe moves, week 2 illuminated the strengths of the contenders and alerted the cellar dwellers of their weaknesses.

While there is plenty of basketball left to be played, the fantasy landscape is officially beginning to take shape across all the RCL leagues. With a shakeup in the top of the overall standings, everything is still in flux as the best teams attempt to separate themselves from the pack.

Popularized by Green Bay Packer legend Vince Lombardi, the mantra “winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing” has characterized the competitive athletic landscape for as long as I can remember. As an extension of real sports, the philosophy applies to fantasy basketball as well, where egos and intellects clash in daily combative matchups.

Not mentioned in this statement is the notion that winning in fantasy basketball also involves setting your lineup every day. While I may have forgotten to set my lineup on more than one occasion (in addition to forgetting about the waiver wire period as I tried to reclaim Harrison Barnes after accidentally dropping him), all the top teams in the RCL basketball league’s have one thing in common: they didn’t do either of those things! Congrats on being more functional humans than me!

While I can easily blame my incredibly busy social life for these fantasy lapses in judgement (I swear I have friends. Fine, I don’t believe me either), week 1 is an interesting pivot point for fantasy owners as the most least successful teams look for a clean slate to either reaffirm or redeem their previous performance.

As the season slowly unfolds, the first week tests the attentiveness and preparation of fantasy owners with the strongest rising to the top of the rankings.

That being said, you can check out how your teams stacked up in week 1 in the 2015-16 RCL Master Standings Table table.  Here’s how the action went down in the first regular season week across our 22 RCL Leagues:

[Re-posting to the top!  Last time, I promise!  We still have spots open, and would love a few final leagues to come to the RCL battlefield.  Hop on in and start up a league today!  100% free, 1,000% fun, I’m going to eat 10,000% too much!]

Chug some Pepto-Bismol, down some glasses of milk, and be sure there’s a lot of toilet paper because we’re back with the Razzball Commenter Leagues!  That’s right, after embarrassingly not coming close to the RCL title last year, I burned out my insides beating a hot wings challenge for reigning champion Akron Lebrons.  At least it was only a day of pain, not a month-long shaming of having High as Greg Kite shaved in my head.  Well, now that I’m married, that latter one is definitely out…

And now it’s your turn to beat the best fantasy basketball community around in the RCL leagues, and immortalize your 2015-16 season with a spot in the RCL Hall of Fame!  Not only does your banner fly forever, but 1st place will win a $50 Amazon gift card, along with the JB YouTube shaming video.  I think the eating challenge went really well last year – after, well – the head shaving wasn’t too legible…  So this time I’ll do a volume eating challenge of the winner’s choice somewhere in the NC area, but nothing disgusting!  I’m not chugging a jar of mayonnaise, aight!  I’m thinking 5-pound burrito, 72-oz steak, 30 happy meals… whatever you’d like!  2nd place gets a prize this year as well, with a $20 Amazon gift card.

rcl-basketball-logoThe regular season approaches — fewer than three weeks before our lives finally have meaning again! My RCL had a draft last weekend, and I wanted to share the results with all of you wonderful readers as a fascinating case study and (perhaps) cautionary tale! This was an excellent draft– I think all managers were drafting live, making some ballsy and brilliant picks. I’ve included a grade and a few words on each of their teams after my pick-by-pick blow-by-blow. Off we go!

[editor’s note – we still have leagues open to join the RCL fun, plus we need more leagues!  Hop over to the RCL sign-ups and start a league today!]
