For those of you here, I applaud you for not giving into that dirty-dirty fantasy football. And if you did give in, then you should sign up for an RCL or RazzDP (our FFB IDP leagues). No judgements here, I play too. I made Sky the lede today because he possess a particular set of skills to rescue you from falling flat on your face in September. You see, playing DFS and the RCL’s are more akin to each other than comparing RCL’s to the soul crushing turd: the Yahoo format. Every day our DFS writers are giving you good one day calls that may contain players available in your league to stream or batty call. I know, I know, we have Rudy’s tools here, and as much as I love the Bots, sometimes I have to dig deeper to find what I’m looking for. If you have no time to dig, then you should be jumping into the DFS posts and peppering them with questions. Last year, when I wrote DFS, I was constantly looking for the low budget plays which is essentially what a batty call is. Same goes for the arms too. To be honest, last year, I was a better batty caller and streaming fool when I was looking at match-ups from every angle imaginable. Please, I implore you, hit up Sky (he’s the master of this domain) and the rest of the DFS crew on the daily for some batty call options. I feel obligated to tell you to visit Sky in his comments. He literally makes you smarter by just being in his space. Unless its with him drunk on the streets of Phoenix, but that’s a story for another time. Now onto you…

This is the best around!… For the season… so far. Do you want to be Daniel Larusso? Then you got to beat all the Cobra Kai’s and win the All Valleys RCL Championship.

Razzball Commenter Leagues 2015 MASTER STANDINGS

  • the difference between 4th and 18th is a little over 6 points. So much can happen as we keep getting closer to the game starts catching up. We get new teams in the top 20 every week, so what I’m trying to say is, anything can happen.
  • Out of the 20 teams on this list 6 are occupied by members of the FCL. This league was put together in the comments by some serious RCL players. I encourage all of you to try and organize with others in the community to make a fun and competitive RCL. If you need any help with that then hit me up in the comments and I’ll help.
  • Team AL KOHOLIC has shot up the ranks and crashed the top ten party…hammered. He’s below in the top offensive performances too. He’s an old school Razzbalero and should be shown the proper respect.

    Any thought having a few razzball approved champions leagues next year? I know there is a league called champions league, but imo it would be nice to have a few open for league champions. If there is some interest I’d be open to organizing one.

    • J-FOH says:

      @Matt: thats funny, I talked to magoo about this very things a few months ago. I dont know if I’m doing the updates next year but either way I’ll be willing to help organize this. Hit me in the offseason in case I forget but I can have Jay include this in the RCL sign up next year
