39.) Rely On Team Consistency More Often Than New Fits
Players switching teams in the offseason is common. Some fits make a ton of sense and others tend to make no sense. With change come new questions and uncertainties. I favor teams that have kept their coaches intact as well as their core roster guys. Other teams have completely redesigned. Will Brock Osweiler be better this year in Houston than Denver? Will DeAndre Hopkins maintain his star level with Osweiler? Can Lamar Miller break out of his shell of limited carries by leaving Miami? Was Barnidge just a one year wonder? What young Browns WR will step up this year? Will Josh Gordon be suspended again? What Josh Gordon will show up? Those are just some questions surrounding two teams. Teams that have a lot of change tend to have more questions you need to ask yourself and wonder about than those who didn’t.
40.) Trust Your Gut
In the end just trust your gut. Whether it’s on who you are drafting or who to put in your lineup, there’s always some gut feeling that says what is right. The statistics can say one thing but sometimes there’s that unknown feeling that compels you to try and do the opposite of what you are trying to talk yourself into. Sometimes you start a guy that is way worse because of a better matchup and your gut says he’s going to have a huge day. In the aftermath it’s much easier to relax going with your gut than looking back and saying I wish I would have listened to myself and have it eat at you all week each time you look at your fantasy team.
