Fantasy Football Week 12
As we drift closer and closer towards our fantasy football playoffs, it depends on what league you’re in as to whether you have one regular season game left or two. Here are a few tips that might help you get past or even squeak in to your first round of playoff games.
At this point you should know who your starting quarterback is, so clear your bench of any back ups and save the room for players you might absolutely need an a pinch. It’s also rings true for players that you haven’t used for several weeks because they’ve simply been back ups.
Next you want to look forward to potential opponents and matchups to position yourself best to get to the championship. Also, you don’t want to dump really good players because you’re giving up on the season or tank your last game for a better draft position next year because it’s not fair to the other players an hour wind up happening to you at the wrong time… Karma is a bitch.
BTW next week I will reveal the final standings from the 1st Annual 10-Team Manopause ‘Fight Club’ Fantasy Football season and who made the playoffs. Care to guess which one of us (Mike, Larry, David or myself) is in 1st place? Or which one is in last place? Who is locked into a wild card spot and who started hard and fast and then simply petered out in the end? One hint…..I am in first place.
