With the NFL regular season finished, and all fantasy leagues officially done, we can look back at the season and see where the value was, as well as where the mirages were.
Some leagues may be finished, but there are still a lot of leagues with one more week to play. Daily Fantasy leagues like FanDuel are still looking to give people one more chance to win, while some Yahoo and ESPN leagues have one more week to go before a champion is crowned. I’m personally in a few leagues on each site that are still playing, so I have a horse in the game just like some of you.
Week 15 marks the 2nd round of the fantasy playoffs for most leagues, putting every single game as a must-win endeavor. Picking the right line-up is the most important factor in winning, but there are times when you set the perfect line-up on paper and watch your bench players outscore your starters.
Week 14 marks the start of the fantasy playoffs for most leagues, making every decision an important one from this moment on. I’m not talking about just the start/sit decisions, but the waiver wire add/drops as well.
