I'm a pretty solid fantasy player, but I'm always looking to improve.
So this thread is for reflection and sharing. Obviously, we all have a litany of strategies or tips regarding the draft, or managing players, or week-to-week decisions. I'm hoping folks will follow my lead and share just one or two of their strategies that set them apart from other players. To get the ball rolling:
DON'T TOUCH THE WAIVER WIRE UNTIL WEEK 3. Everybody knows the folks that jump on that week 1 star and drop guys they drafted for that TE who scored 24 points. And we also know that he'll average 3.5 for the next 6 weeks. Staying off the waiver wire does two things: it allows you to potentially jump on a awkward mistake (we had a guy drop Riley Cooper 2 weeks into last season) but more importantly, it ups your waiver wire position so that, when there is that player that EVERYBODY wants, you're in slot 1 to get him.
So, what other winning strategies are out there?
