Fantasy Football Tip: “Scouting Your Opponent’s Line-up”

So, here we are a few weeks into the Fantasy Football season and everyone is scraping and scrapping for wins. Without a doubt, we all know that every point and every game count and none of us can afford to take any weeks off. And given the uber-competitive nature of fantasy football, we all look for any and every edge to help us get a win, right? Right.

Well, in the spirit of competition, a couple of topics that often come up when I’m discussing fantasy football strategy with other players are: “whether or not you should scout our opponent’s line-ups” and “dead-beat, absentee fantasy football managers”. For this post, let’s address the first topic. Personally, I think it’s an absolute waste of time to even look your opponent’s roster. Why bother? The teams aren’t actually facing each other on the field, so what’s the point of scouting or game-planning for your opponent’s line-up. In fact, not only is it a complete waste of time, it’s potentially a huge mistake to plan your line-up based on who your opponent is putting on the field. By doing this you take the proper focus off of your team and you run the risk of not putting your best possible line-up on the field; which should always be the priority regardless of your opponent.

ADVICE: At the end of the day, it’s about scoring more points than your opponent. But, what we all need to remember is that your players aren’t truly facing each other, so what’s the point of worrying about your opponent’s line-up? Your defense can’t affect how many points the opposing offense scores. So, don’t worry about who your opponent puts in his/her line-up. Instead of wasting time looking at your opponent’s team, you could be scouting your own team to make sure all of your players are healthy and have favorable “real-world” match-ups. Or maybe you could be scouting the waiver-wire for that sleeper pick-up. Focus on finding the players that will get you the most points, give you the best chance at getting the “W”, and adjust your line-up accordingly.

Good luck, Fantasy Footballers!

Fantasy Football Tip: “Dead-beat/ Absentee Managers”

Here’s the continuation of my previous post: I often hear people complaining about “deadbeat/ absentee” fantasy football managers. You know those guys who sign-up to play in your league, but then fail to fully participate in the league. Maybe they don’t even attend the draft and instead allow their team to be auto-drafted. Then, throughout the season, they leave guys in the line-up who are injured or on bye-week. They leave empty slots in their line-up and as a result, some teams win games that they may have otherwise lost if this particular manager was properly managing their team.

ADVICE: This can be frustrating. I get it. But honestly, it shouldn’t matter to you what anyone else is doing with their team. If your “winning” strategy revolves around whether or not other people in the leagues are properly managing their line-ups, then you are setting yourself up for failure. If you go through the season counting on certain teams losing to help your team’s chances, then you shouldn’t expect to go far come playoff time. Again, your focus should be on YOUR team only. Don’t waste time even looking at other teams’ rosters unless you are scouting for a possible trade. Navigate waiver wire, pursue your trades if you want (although I personally never make trades), and make smart line-up adjustments. Follow this strategy and you’ll be just fine.

Good luck, Fantasy Footballers!

"NAVIGATING THE WAIVER WIRE!"

TIP#1:

WR is probably the easiest position to shop for on the waiver wire because if the team has experienced injuries, the QB is forced to throw to the WR no matter the talent level.

TIP#2:

You can win games using the defense! Look for defenses that have the most favorable match-up from week to week! Remember, EVERY point counts!

TIP#3:

When choosing a QB off of the waiver wire, focus on the match-up. Base your decision on who that QB is playing and the point potential!


Grind House’s Top 5 Fantasy Football “Keys to Victory!” 

  1. Check weekly matchups according to NFL rankings (e.g. who has the number #1 defense, who has the number #1 passing offense) - It isn’t enough to assume that because your team is full of high scoring players that they will each carry their load week in and week out. So, it is crucial that you review each individual match-up on a weekly basis to ensure you are putting your team in the best possible position to win, even if that means benching someone who usually gets a ton of points for you. For example, Tom Brady and Drew Brees can both usually been counted on to meet and even exceed their weekly point projections, right? But let’s say you have one of them facing the Broncos defense IN Denver with snow in the forecast on a particular week. Maybe there is a more favorable matchup at QB sitting on your bench just for that week? That’s smart GM thinking right there!

  2. Be sure to have serviceable back-ups at the RB position if your starting RB is injury prone - We all know that great running backs are a huge commodity in fantasy football right? Year in and year out, a RB is usually ranked at or near the top in fantasy value. That run, they catch, the score a bunch of touchdowns and rack up a bunch of yards. They are monsters! But we also know that running backs take a huge pounding and are subject to being nicked up on the regular. For example; David Johnson was the projected number #1 fantasy grab this season, but a broken hand has him out indefinitely. Nothing is a sure thing in fantasy and you have to plan for things like injuries. Especially at a high volume, high contact position like running back. So the smart GM will always have at least one or two serviceable running backs stashed on the bench in case their main guy gets banged up. This could seem like a waste of talent and roster space and you may be thinking to yourself that you could use the extra RBs for trade bait...perhaps, but remember, the fantasy football season is a long grind and again, you have to have a back-up plan.

  3. Pay attention to the weather forecasts for games - this can have a huge effect on things like the passing game - Ah, the good ol’ weather forecast...any good fantasy football GM knows that he or she has to have a little weatherperson running through their veins. It is key to your success. Weather can truly alter a football game...too much ice snow, rain, or wind and the passing game goes out of the window. Too hot? Could see a lot of cramps on the field. Too cold? Maybe a lot of dropped balls. Don’t forget about lightening. Too much of that and the game can get delayed or worse cancelled. All of this matters. You have to make sure you pay attention to the weather report for all of the games that involve your players.

  4. Check for the most favorable match-ups on defense (e.g. Houston Texans’ defense vs Cleveland Browns’ offense) - Very similar to key #1 - you have to pay attention to your defense’s match-up as well. Sure you may have the Broncos’ defense and they are a must-play against everyone, but what if it is against the highest scoring offense on that’s offense home field. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, there is a more favorable match-up for that week (e.g. a decent defense going against the league’s worst offense?) Don’t assume that because you have a top defense that they are a must play every single week. Remember, match-ups matter!

  5. CHECK, DOUBLE-CHECK, AND TRIPLE CHECK the injury report all the way up until the start of the games - Ok, this key is related to #2 but it applies to positions on your roster. Nothing is worse than having a player go from “healthy” or “probable” to “questionable” or “out” right before kick-off. But you checked the injury report on Wednesday or Thursday right? Doesn’t matter if the game isn’t until Sunday. As part of your pre-game ritual, doing a final check on the injury report should be as routine as setting your starting line-up. Don’t overlook it and don’t take it for granted that your fantasy app will have the absolute latest on injuries. If you have a doubt about one of your players, do the leg work to make sure they are good to go. If can give the chance to make a last minute line-up adjustment if need be and can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Of course most, if not all of this advice is predicated on your roster strength and the flexibility you have to make moves - league rules on trades and waiver wire, as well as trade and free agent availability. Some times you have to work with what you have and sometimes you may have to bypass one of the keys above to address a need on your roster. Ultimately, it comes down to your skills as a GM and if your players will hold up their end of the deal! So, get out there and make it happen!
