The following are few Fantasy Football Tips I've learned over the last several years; which have helped me win Several Games, a Championship, and finish in the Top of several leagues. These tips are primarily geared towards PPR Leagues, but if you are in a Standard League they can help you too. Whether you are new to Fantasy Football or a seasoned vet, I am sure there is something here for you.
Here Are Your Fantasy Football Tips
Tip # 1 – It's all about the match ups, especially come playoff time. This is one of the tips that I had to learn the hard way.
Several years ago I went UNDEFITED for an entire season and made it to the Championship. I had the BETTER ROSTER and better players, BUT the other guy had a GOOD ROSTER with GREAT match ups. By match ups I mean that his players had an easier Playoff schedule than mine did. They played weaker defenses that could not defend his players offensive positions that well. So his guys literally went off and mine did not show up; mainly because of the match ups and tip # 2, which is …
Fantasy Football Tips # 2 – Watch out for the WEATHER! This is another tip I learned in a VERY PAINFUL way. During this same Championship Game I had Tom Brady, Randy Moss, and probably at least one other player on my Roster that happened to be playing in a literal Blizzard. SERIOUSLY. This was the year that Brady and Moss both broke the TD records and the Pats almost went undefeated … You know, Brady is throwing 2-3 TD's a game and Moss is catching 1 TD a game with over 100 yards receiving.
Well on that day, I do not think Brady thread a TD and Moss probably only had a couple of catches. It was brutal. So now when I am looking at the NFL Schedule, I am looking for studies that play in good climates or Domes at the end of the year … just in case the WEATHER bug shows up and kills my team.
Tip # 3 – Fantasy Football tips # 3 is comparable to fantasy football tips # 1. Draft with the Playoffs in mind. Now nothing is 100%, because the NFL changes every year. But I will go to NFL.com or ESPN.com and look at the past years TEAM STATS. You can highlight the "Scores & Stats" tab and then go to "Team Stats" You can access this by going to NFL.com.
