Five Troubleshooting Tips to Keep Your Team on Track
NFL fantasy football is a huge game, with over 33 million people participating in the United States and Canada. If you are new to fantasy football, or even if you are a veteran, here are five troubleshooting tips that will keep your team on track.
1. Keep Your Lineup Updated: This sounds so simple, but many players do not check their lineup each week before the games begin. By doing this simple step, you can avoid having injured players in your lineup (who will get no points for your team), or by having players who have been traded or released from one team to another. The best way to make sure you have the right lineup is to check it every week a few hours before game time.
2. Join the Right League: Choosing a league that is right for you can seem like an easy thing to do at first, but there are many different types of leagues out there to choose from – and some may not be what you’re looking for. Before joining a league, be sure to read the rules carefully so that there are no surprises when it comes time to pay up or win your prize – especially if it involves money. You can also find out whether you are required to
So, your fantasy football team isn’t quite living up to the hype. Sure, you were counting on a big year from Chris Johnson and Darren McFadden, but through five weeks, both running backs have been busts. And how about that Steve Smith? You knew he’d bounce back with a big year, but through five weeks he’s been nothing more than a shell of his former self.
Just when things seem to be looking down for you, I’m here for you. Here are five tips to keep your team in contention:
1. Look at the schedule. Your top players may be struggling now, but if they have favorable match-ups coming up in the near future you could get them turned around very quickly.
2. Don’t be afraid to trade away players who haven’t performed well so far. If you can get good value for them then do it; there is plenty of talent on the waiver wire for you to pick up on.
3. If a player has been underperforming so far this season then there is no reason why they should continue to underperform throughout the season as well. If they are playing poorly then they are hurting your fantasy team so perhaps it is better off that they play elsewhere this season.
Don’t panic. These are the five words you must remember if you want to win at fantasy football. You will have your ups and downs during the season, but don’t let that get you down or make you quit. You can turn your team around, but it takes a lot of time and patience.
If you have already lost several games in a row, don’t give up on your team just yet. Take a look at the players on your roster and evaluate them by their performance so far this season. If you see a player that is not doing as well as he did last year, it may be time to trade him for someone else who is doing well this year. Remember that there are always surprises in fantasy football every year and trades are part of the game!
If you’re still losing games, take a look at the other teams in your league and see which one is winning consistently. Make a list of their players, then compare that list to yours. Do they have more depth at a certain position? If so, find out who they drafted and see if they are available in free agency right now or next week when waivers go through again. You can also try picking up someone off waivers who has done well so far this season but was dropped by

You’re in a fantasy football league, and you’re ready to dominate. Your draft went great, your roster is stacked, and you’ve done some research on the NFL players stats. But after week 1, you’re in last place. Don’t panic! Follow these five tips to get back on track and make a run at the championship.
Don’t overreact – The best thing you can do right now is not overreact to week 1 stats. It’s just one game in a long season. Overreacting will cause you to make rash decisions that you’ll regret later. No need to panic yet!
Check for injuries – With only 16 games in the regular season, any missed time due to injury can be devastating for a player’s fantasy value. Make sure all of your starters are healthy and ready to play this week before setting lineup decisions in stone.
Look at upcoming opponents – Your next opponent may have just given up 30 points to another team’s running backs. If so, this is a great opportunity for your RBs to have a big day! It’s very important to check out upcoming opponents throughout the season when setting weekly lineups.
Do your homework – Research is key! Watching highlights and reading analyst predictions can help make sure you’re starting
The phrase “fantasy football” has become very popular in the last decade and a half. The game is a virtual version of the National Football League and requires participants to draft their own made-up teams and compete against other players throughout the season.
A common misconception is that fantasy football is a form of gambling. That would be incorrect because the game revolves around your knowledge of the sport, not chance or luck. When you play fantasy football, you are drafting players based on their expected performances in real-life NFL games. You are also taking into account how they will perform against your opponent’s team each week.
The first step is to find a league that interests you. This can be done by simply searching for “fantasy football leagues” in any search engine. There are public leagues, private leagues, pay leagues, free leagues and so on. Just decide what type of league fits your personality best and go from there!
