New Reality No.120: The Stretch Run - Footballguys

Navigating the ever-changing landscape of dynasty fantasy football

We are in the closing stretch for the fantasy regular season. Eight weeks are behind us with most leagues having five more weeks until the playoffs. Most teams in the league have clarity on if they are a contender or not and the previous installments of this post have discussed particular target players for contending or building trading. On a weekly basis here is the checklist for dynasty owners in the closing weeks of the regular season:

Double-Check Lineups

Have a routine each week. I set an initial lineup before Thursday Night Football, then adjust as needed over the weekend, including going through all my leagues leading up to the early Sunday kickoff. Even if not in the playoff race, do not be the GM to completely miss a declared 'out' player for the week. With more family time, travel, and holidays, life happens but have a valid lineup, period. If a specific player scratches or looks dicey after Friday practice reports, the myfantasyleague.com function where you can check a player's status in all leagues is a time saver for GMs in a bunch of leagues. The page shows which teams have a certain player on their roster in each league and you can click to only those leagues to get the player out of lineups.
