The Gut Check No. 433

Matt Waldman looks back on his season in a re-draft league and shares six lessons for future team building. Most importantly, shoot your shot!

I play in eight fantasy leagues. The majority of them are dynasty leagues with a significant IDP component. I only played in one true re-draft league this year — the Footballguys Staff League

For the record, I made the playoffs in four of these eight leagues, losing the tiebreaker for a berth in two others. Last spring, I also took over a team in a devy-dynasty format that didn't win a game in 2016. After starting 0-5, I won 6 of 7 and nearly earned a playoff spot without a quarterback. 

The team I'm profiling has a 10-3 record, a first-round bye, and faces Jeff Haseley's squad in the semifinals of the league. Last year, I lost in the semis to eventual champion Chase Stuart. More about that later.

I'm profiling this league because there are worthwhile lessons for all fantasy owners when it comes to drafting, lineups, and free agency.
