A New Kind Of Manopause Fantasy football Tips
This weeks Manopause fantasy football tips are going to be a little different. It’s more about what not to do than what you should be doing when it comes to making transactions, dropping & picking up players off waivers and making trades. There are so many injuries, COVID cases and bye weeks you simply have to juggle your line up right up to game time, so be very careful!
Fantasy Football Trades
When it comes to making a trade the first thing you wanna remember is that it has to be beneficial to both parties. If you’re going to propose a trade, do not try to pull one over on another player but instead try to make it even more valuable for them than for you so that you can get what you need to get through your bye week or overcome an injury. Remember: trading is a big part of fantasy football when it comes to who to start and sit, and you want to be able to work closely with your opponents so that everybody can get what they need.
Picking Up And Dropping Players
When it comes to picking up players and dropping others the best tip I can give you is take your time and think it through. I made a rookie mistake last week when I thought I was dropping D. Hopkins (the kicker) when I was actually dropping D. Hopkins who is one of the top wide receivers in the league. I was using the app on my phone and trying to make a transaction quickly before the 1 o’clock games began and I inadvertently dropped one of my best players thinking I was merely dropping my second kicker.
Fortunantly for me my commish was cool and reversed it, but he was not able to correct it by the 4pm games so I had to drop a bench player to fill the gap… I still won but lost a good tight end.
Picking Up Players On The Waivers
Lastly, make sure if you pick somebody up on waivers that you’re actually planning on playing them or at least keeping them to the following week. Most leagues will not allow you to drop a player in the same week that you picked him up and you will see the word “locked” next to their name. This rule is in effect to prevent people from simply picking someone up so that someone else can’t have them and then taking them off the market until that weeks NFL games are completed.
