How’d I do in my last article? Who knows. Probably bad. After all, I’m the same guy who bought Mark Ingram midweek only to have him replaced after three carries by Tim Freaking Hightower, who proceeded to roll up more touches than Ingram has received in a single game all year. Not that I’m bitter or anything…
And while I feel like I’ve hit on a decent number of my suggestions this year, I also feel like I’ve missed on more than I have in previous years. If nothing else, it’ll surely make for an interesting season-end postmortem, but I think it’s just been a wacky year in general. Many of the consensus preseason predictions have gone down the crapper, leading to a season of relatively chaos.
But you just can’t get bogged down in it, especially at this point in the year. With half of the fantasy season in the books, you can’t let the chaos that has defined this season define your team as well. One way or another, it’s time to declare your intentions.
Are you a contender or a rebuilder? If you’re a middling team, what is your path to the playoffs, and how narrow is the range of outcomes that will get you there? If you sell out to win, what will your team look like if you don’t? These are the questions you should be asking yourself.
In that spirit, I’ll be asking a series of questions as well relating to some of the moves your teams might consider making. Let’s get started.
