If your fantasy football season has not been laid to rest due to injury, COVID-19, running out of FAAB, Joe Judge or any of the hundreds of disruptions that have attempted to derail the 2020 NFL season, I salute you. This has been one of the best seasons in recent memory in terms of skill mattering for fantasy football owners. Of course, if you started your draft with Christian McCaffrey, Courtland Sutton and AJ Brown, there is only so much that can be done for you. However, as fantasy gamers have adapted to impromptu COVID bye weeks and a wild year of bidding on the waiver wire, it is my expectation that we will have a wave of skilled players who won their league going away.
Of course, part of the problems we have had as players (who think that they are #sharp) is figuring out what to do with the looming “maybe” bye weeks. I definitely got it wrong in my rankings and with my personal teams last week as I opted to sit Bills and Titans players and paid the price. There were two high stakes leagues where I replaced Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs that caused me to take a loss where I would have had a W locked in. Of course, all of you are dealing with similar circumstances and don’t care about my sob stories. The best path to take as it pertains to those tricky matchup questions all relate to your individual circumstances. Are you favored in your matchup? Where are you in your league standings? What is the projected gap between your two options? These are the sort of thoughts that should be running through your mind as you set your lineups this week and in the future.
