Beginner's Guide to Fantasy Football, Part 11 - Footballguys

Our beginner's guide focuses on making starting lineup decisions

Okay, you've selected your players, analyzed your strengths, grabbed a couple free agents, pulled a trade or two and now you're ready for Week 1. So you study your roster and try to decide who is going to give you that all-important first win. Here are a few tips on how to ensure that your team not only notches its first win but also keeps you in every game, even against the league champion.

Know Your Deadlines

This is the single most important piece of information when determining your lineup from week to week. All the research and breaking news in the world won't mean much if it's too late to change your lineup. It is critical that you know when your starting lineup is frozen.

It may sound silly to state this as the most important rule, but you will be surprised at how often it is missed. During the course of the regular season, someone will forget that there is a Thursday game, or that their stud running back is off this week. By the time they realize their mistake, it will be past the deadline, and they'll start someone who is off or sit someone who they should not have.
