All the hard work is finally culminating after countless all-nighters at Razzball Headquarters scheduling inspiration sessions and using interns as footrests while watching The O.C.  So much culmination going on over here. Anyway, I’m pleased to announce Razzball will be partnering with the kind folks at The NFBC to bring you a legendary fantasy baseball contest. A happening which will go down with the Agricultural Revolution, the Treaty of Versailles, and the invention of yoga pants, among the greatest events in human history: The RazzSlamWhat is the RazzSlam and how does this Donkey still have a job after ranking Kikuchi #26 among starting pitchers in 2019? I’m glad you ask, random italicized voice.

What: A HUGE fantasy baseball best ball tournament which will forever transform the landscape of the fantasy baseball world.

Who: Scores of your favorite fantasy baseball analysts, with a sprinkling of fans. Participating analysts include Razzball’s own Grey Albright & Rudy Gamble, Scott White of CBS, Andy Behrens of Yahoo, plus many, many more! The field will consist of 75% analysts, 25% fans and .01% Donkey.

Where: The NFBC has very graciously agreed to play host to this historic event on their state of the art platform using their Cutline Championship format.

Why: To crown the best fantasy baseballer in the universe, win life changing prizes and impress the babes—or dudes if that’s your thing.

When: Slow drafts featuring a 4-hour per pick clock are tentatively scheduled to begin in late February.

How: If you’re interested in participating, fill out the form below and submit. A fan lottery will take place near the end of the winter, Hunger Games style. Be on the lookout for ways to increase your lottery odds by reading Razzball articles throughout the winter.

Format: This contest will mirror the NFBC Best Ball Cutline Championship Rules, except we’ll feature 12 team leagues rather than 10 team leagues.

Prizes: The NFBC is generously offering each league winner a $25 credit on their site. In addition, overall prizes are as follows . . .

    I’d be down. Filled out the form. Never done a cutline before, but basically it looks like Draft Champions with 2 FAABs and you never have to set a lineup?

      A couple main differences from Draft Champions:

      1) Points scoring vs Roto since it’s a best ball format—you’re correct, no lineup setting in best ball
      2) Two FAAB runs for the entire season as you mentioned
      3) 12 team leagues vs the 15 team DC leagues
      4) 42 round draft vs 50 round DC draft
      5) The top half of each league will advance to the playoffs which begin in mid-July. The playoffs consist of 3 rounds. Each round lasts around 3 weeks with the field being whittled down after each round.

      What pick did you get? 8 spot here…

      • hot corner says:

        Pick 12. Don’t love it, but if I am going to be outside of the first 4-5 picks, then I don’t mind having 2 picks in the top 20.

          Definitely. I like being in the middle with 15 teams because it’s more likely players I’m looking at with my previous pick will make it back to me.
