Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Live Updates, Week 3: Jerome Ford, Kyren WIlliams and more
Good morning and no — it is never too early to panic! After all, this is fantasy football; it’s not like you’re going to hurt Joe Burrow’s feelings if you bench him or, even worse, drop him (insert dramatic music here). They are just going to continue to do the best they can to help their teams win until the coaches or organizations decide that their services are no longer needed. What you should do is use a proven method of evaluation: the 5 Ws and H. Every week, evaluate your team and never stop tinkering.
This is what I do every week:
Consistent Production vs. Mirage:
It’s essential to assess the players on your roster and determine who is consistently providing production. However, be cautious of those whose performance may be deceiving. Don’t hesitate to sell high on players who might not sustain their current level of output. Look for trends and analyze their underlying statistics to make informed decisions.
Defining Your Team’s Look:
Each week, you should have a clear vision of how you want your team to perform. Consider factors like upcoming matchups, injuries, and potential breakout players. Adjust your lineup accordingly and make calculated decisions to maximize your team’s potential for success.
Knowing When to Move On:
Struggling players can hinder your team’s performance. It’s important to recognize when it’s time to part ways with underperforming players. Don’t hold onto hope for too long; instead, be proactive and seek replacements who can contribute immediately.
Bolstering Your Roster:
Identifying opportunities to strengthen your roster is crucial. Look for potential additions through the waiver wire or explore trade options. Assess your team’s needs and target players who can fill those gaps effectively. Be realistic in your expectations and consider the value of the players you might have to give up.
The Reasons Behind Playing Time:
Understanding why a player is playing or not playing is vital. Keep track of injury reports, coaching decisions, and team dynamics. This knowledge will help you make better decisions regarding your lineup and potential trade opportunities.
Strengthening Weak Areas:
Identify the weakest areas of your team and strategize on how to improve them. Analyze your team’s performance and statistics to pinpoint the areas that need attention. Look for potential trades or waiver wire pickups that can address those weaknesses effectively.
Remember, fantasy football requires constant evaluation and adjustment. Stay proactive, use the 5 Ws and H method, and never stop tinkering with your roster. Good luck in Week 3!
