150 – Navigating the Early Weeks of the 2021 Fantasy Football Season
Whether it is a redraft league or a dynasty league you participate in the first four weeks should be treated like boxers treat the first round. Get a feel for your roster and your league. Trust your draft and let it play out. Don’t get too caught up in matchups early in the season. You likely drafted based off of rankings, or ADP, and if you did barring injury you will be fine in the first four weeks of the season.
Strange things happens all the time in fantasy football, and it is important to note that it happens to all of us. Don’t overreact to Ezekiel Elliott’s poor performance on Thursday, and also don’t overreact to Rob Gronkowski’s exceptional performance.
If you participate in a Guillotine league,(and you should, it is in my opinion the best format fantasy has to offer), well a Guillotine league is a different duck all together. For those unaware of the Guillotine format, it is an 18-team league in which the lowest scoring team each week is chopped, and their entire roster hits the waiver wire. If you started Zeke and got 5.9 PPR points, or Gio and got 3.2 points or worse started OJ Howard and got none, you should be concerned. Not all is lost but you certainly can’t be comfortable entering Sunday.
Start your best players, likely the ones you drafted in the first 8-10 rounds and you’ll be fine. Be active on the league’s waiver wire and most of all have some fun. This is a game that many of us, myself included take to seriously.
