Unless you managed to right the ship if you made these mistakes, you're not going to the playoffs. I am more than pleased to crow, because despite making all these blunders, I made the playoffs in 6 out of those nine leagues. An early trade for Drew Brees in one league was the defining turning point. Josh Gordon, who I made a point to draft and stash in multiple leagues, was also a bacon saver. One of my better strategies was the two teams where I drafted Jimmy Graham in the second round. I wish I done that, or drafted Calvin Johnson, or a top tier quarterback, more often. Matt Stafford was a rock on two teams. Russell Wilson was almost never huge, but always dependable.
One of the things that has become most apparent to me this fantasy season is that I don't enjoy fantasy football very much. I mean I don't enjoy it in the sense that is a pleasurable experience to me. I have one league, the only league I play year after year, where I look like a clown every year, and can't even fathom why I never win. If I won in every other league, which I came close to doing multiple times later this year, and lost in that league, I was unhappy. I'm starting to question whether or not I should even play fantasy football next year. I guess a lot of that will depend on how I do in the playoffs, although I can see in every league except one I do not have the best team. Whatever I say here, I know I'll get that familiar urge to start checking the fantasy mock drafts as soon as February. Maybe I need to find a better way to waste my time.
