I enjoy absorbing everything I can during football season. The passion and enthusiasm that flood websites, social media, podcasts, and live streams during the extended NFL season is second to none.
I’d rather have an 0-6 record in every single fantasy league I’m in, yet have it be Week 7 of our football season than be 0-0 while enduring the doldrums of the offseason. A spark can happen at any moment from almost anywhere that may change your fortunes for the better and put you back on a winning course.
I enjoy the way DFS players attack single week slates like their lives depended on it. I enjoy the patience shown by veteran season-long players who’ve seen it all many times before and refuse to get rattled by cold streaks. I enjoy the analytics, the characters, the rooting, the comedy, the passion.
Time to get back to work making our roster depth as strong as it’s been all season. Keep a sharp eye on who is being dropped in your leagues each week. This is generally the month when teams are forced to clear coveted players from their bench in order to add live bodies for the more difficult bye weeks ahead, and you will often find a gemstone hidden in the rough.
