Beginner's Guide to Fantasy Football, Part 8: Improving Your Team

Our beginner's guide series provides a blueprint for improving your team

No roster is perfect. Few come close to it. Flaws exist on just about every roster, and no fantasy owner is lucky enough to make it through a season without injuries or byes causing problems.

You’ve effectively analyzed your roster by now, whether it’s via the Rate My Team app or your own self-reflection. You know the team’s weaknesses and strengths, and you can do the same for the rest of the teams in your league. Our Draft Dominator can help you do just that if you use it to sync up with your league or manually input all the teams. Leverage that knowledge to pursue trades or use free agency to improve your roster.

Wheeling and Dealing

Trades are a great, if not easy, way to improve your roster. It may be more difficult in some leagues than others to pull off trades based on the willingness of fantasy owners to make them, but it never hurts to try.

Let’s start with the same fictional roster from the previous section. Again, this is a 12-team PPR league with a flex starter.
