Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

618 posts in this topic

This year more than any I have been noticing so many mistakes with these Rotoworld blurbs. Simple, easy mistakes that can be avoided. On top of that I love seeing them promote Trent as a RB1 up until last week. Hype someone as a TE1 one day then 2 days later he's barely a TE2.

So here is the thread we all need. The Rotoworld Blurb Thread.

Post mistakes, laugh at the morons writing them, discuss their opinions and thoughts with yours.

The Best one now.

Stafford found Calvin Johnson for 14 catches, 329 yards and a touchdown. Megatron's yardage total was just seven off the single-game record. Stafford's first pick came on a tipped pass off Megatron's hands, while the second was a brutal toss to Cowboys MLB Sean Lee, who jumped the route. Stafford never stopped throwing, however, while his rushing score was of the "harrowing" variety with 0:12 left. After Johnson got tackled at the one-yard line, Stafford hurried his team to the line to spike the ball, but instead dove over the pile for the game-winning score. Not even his own linemen appeared to know what he was going to do. Now averaging 327 passing yards per game, Stafford gets the Bears' falling-off defense in Week 9.

Nope, Stafford has a bye week Week 9 but thanks for trying.

Everybody's known Rotoworld's love for CJ Spiller, Trent Richardson and Lamar Miller by now. But don't forget Tom Brady. Silva had quite a crush on Tom Terrific coming into this season.

There were posts on multiple occasions that Rotoworld said Percy Harvin would return on Week 12 (Seahawks bye week).

Minimal risk of injury if he returns that week. Also minimum amount of fantasy points.

The ONLY thing writers on this site are concerned about is protecting their own asses when it comes to their preseason rankings. Ironically most of them don't spend an extra five seconds to proof read their work.

Can a bunch of drunk monkeys be trained to proofread? We might have stumbled across the problem.

Time=money. Those five seconds could be spent writing another snarky comment that generates more clicks.

Garrett Graham went from a bottom of the barrel TE2/3 to back-end TE1 to barely on the TE2 radar in a matter of weeks....

I think you guys are being a little harsh. Remember, the majority of the info on this site is FREE. Yes, FREE. Most of these guys doing Fantasy for a living are doing it out of a passion for the sport. They're not making a ton of money doing this. Cut them some slack and make your own decisions when it comes to your fantasy teams. Too often these guys are used as scapegoats.

There are so many mistakes on these blurbs, simple mistakes taht a little fact checking could fix. I would be ok with one every so often but they happen multiple times a week.

Whoever wrote the blurb on Steven Jackson obviously started him this week. Pretty disrespectful toward a class guy like SJax. Surprised the person didn't end the blurb with, "POO POO ON ON YOU, YOU STUPID NINNY HEAD!"

"We hope that Jackson's hamstring wasn't 100 percent after not playing since Week 2. Because if he was healthy, this was a truly pathetic performance. The offensive line gave him very few holes, but he ran like a poor man's Peyton Hillis while trying to find them. Slow would be an understatement. The Falcons would have been better off sticking with Jacquizz Rodgers (four touches), but they gave S-Jax the veteran treatment and a majority of the snaps. The sledding won't get any easier as the Falcons are at Carolina in Week 9 and then face Seattle in Week 10. Jackson has almost no shot to produce against those elite defenses."

There is no excuse to not take the time to check your facts before posting something online for millions of people to read especially when you're getting paid for it.

Are the blurb writers paid employees?

I always assumed it was a volunteer position.

Lol "Those idiots in the forum who benched Trent Richardson after Week 5. He's an obvious RB1 still."

It's not that... It's the Matter of Fact, Holier than thou attitude in so many of them. Things stated as fact, that when you first come here, you can be swayed by.

Go back and read some of the blurbs on players from when they went from unknown to fantasy starter. They are ridiculed with negative, no chance type of comments and then all of a sudden they are "locked and loaded RB1".

And people can say it's free all they want. Which is good for us. Just remember, it's all of our 'clicks' on their website that generate advertising dollars that pay their checks.

Yes, the Rotoworld blurbs are ridiculous. Take this one for example:

DeMarco Murray (knee) is listed as probable for Week 9 against Minnesota.

Murray will remain an injury risk going forward -- he's been injured every year of his playing career going back to his days at Oklahoma -- but he's worth firing up as an RB2 against the Vikings. Minnesota is poor in run defense.

The first paragraph has value, the second paragraph has no value whatsoever. It's as if whoever is writing these things is trying to justify a paycheck. Everyone who is serious at all about this game knows Murray's injury history, and most people are in bye week hell and have to start Murray if he's available this week. It's almost gotten to the point where I try to force myself to just not see the blue parts of the blurbs and just read the paragraphs in black.

DeSean Jackson caught four passes for 80 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 10 win at Green Bay.

Jackson got the party started when he caught a deflection off the hands of Packers CB Tramon Williams for a 55-yard touchdown in the first quarter. It was his second straight game with a touchdown and he's up to seven on the season. With Nick Foles willing to push the ball deep down the field, there's upside to sustain that rate. Jackson will be a borderline WR1 against the Redskins in Week 11.

I have to ask...how is DJax a borderline WR1 against a terrible redskins defense? He has been torching guys all season and is easily a mid to high WR1 in this matchup. Rotoworld blurbs at it's finest.

Tony Gonzalez was spotted hobbling around the Falcons' locker room with an injured toe on his left foot following Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Asked if he'll be okay going forward, Gonzalez replied "We'll see." Gonzo indicated he'll head for some tests on the toe. The Falcons' bye isn't until Week 12. "I played on it," he said. "Wasn’t able to go full speed, but we’ll see how it goes the next day. Usually when you have injuries, you can get through it through the game. Then the next day after it calms down and swells up a little bit, then that’s when the trouble starts. So, we’ll see how goes. Tomorrow, I’m going to wake up, and hopefully it’s not that bad."

Week 6 bye.
