Alright, here are some of my pet peeves when it comes to fantasy football. These are some issues that I see every year with fantasy owners. I'm going to help you avoid making the same mistakes before the season even starts. So here are five fantasy mistakes to avoid this season.
Bench a receiver because your opponent has the quarterback of that receiver.
This drives me absolutely crazy. A fantasy owner sits a player because of his opponent's lineup. The owner is going to sit Davante Adams this week because he is playing Aaron Rodgers. What? The whole point of fantasy football is to score the most points. This isn't real football. You need to field a lineup that will score the most possible points. It does not matter who your opponent is playing. If you are deciding between Adams and Julian Edelman, pick the player that you think will score the most points that week. It doesn't matter if your opponent has Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady. You need to field the best possible lineup for that week. It does not matter who your opponent is starting. That will not make a difference in your points scored. Play the best possible lineup every week.
