The Gut Check No.486: Six Ways (And Players) to Salvage Your Fantasy Season

In this week's Gut Check, Matt Waldman gives six steps—including players—to potentially salvage your season. 

Let me guess, your August draft didn't go well. You didn't follow my advice to land Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescott, or Matthew Stafford at a bargain between rounds 9-15. Justice Hill's speed seduced you into believing that I was too hooked on Mark Ingram II to see the Ravens offense clearly and no matter how much LeSean McCoy dropped, you thought I was crazy to have LeSean McCoy this entire summer as a top-20 fantasy back.

You probably thought my love for Cooper Kupp was out of bounds and that my constant reminder of Sammy Watkins' offseason fixes to his body were little more than sentiment. That obvious went for me doubling-down on Austin Hooper and imploring you to wait until a least round 10 on tight ends because of Delanie Walker, Greg Olsen, and Darren Waller.

Whatever the reasons, you're now 0-4, 1-3, or 2-2 in a competitive league and trying to fix it.

If you're reading this, it means you still have a fighting chance because you haven't given up. You're not one of those competitors who pack it in when a challenge is kicking your tail. Don't be that person, you learn nothing from giving up.

This week's Gut Check will provide six steps to help you salvage your fantasy season. That's the sales pitch. The reality is that these six steps might help you salvage your fantasy season. After all, you got into this mess and there are no magic pills.

The biggest promise yours truly can make is that listening to some of these takes will definitely make you a wiser fantasy player for giving some of them a shot.
