Fantasy Football: Strategy For Transitioning From Season to Season
Fantasy football strategy: transitioning from one season to the next.
For as long as I can remember, right before I turn a light on or off in a room, I close my eyes.
For example, at night before I lie in bed. I know when I turn off the lights, it’s going to go dark and my eyes will need a few seconds to adjust. So to help with the transition, I close them right before I flip the switch. Then I reopen them after flipping said switch and my eyes are immediately adjusted. No one has ever told me to do this and I honestly have no scientific proof that it’s a good idea. I just to do it. You might think I’m crazy, but I believe that it helps.
Well, in a manner of speaking, I had been doing that in fantasy football for the last few weeks. I have not been analyzing stats or going over the successes and failures of this past season in much depth yet. I’ve hardly been active on Twitter. I haven’t even read many articles by anyone released in the last few weeks. I’ve simply been enjoying playoff football, family and life. Closing my eyes as the lights get turned off on this season, in preparation for the next.
With the Super Bowl over, I’ll open these fantasy eyes back up. Hopefully completely adjusted to the changes the new season will bring.
I’ll dig deep into what worked well for me this last year and what didn’t. Determine what if anything I learned. I’ll forecast some early projections and see who I like for next year. Dive deeper into the rookie class, checking out more stats and film. I’ll be looking into the lives of players to see who might have an awakening like Christine Michael did last offseason or whom might be gaining too much weight like Eddie Lacy. I’ll read lots of great articles by many different guys in the profession I respect. I’ll begin making moves again in Dynasty. All in preparing for the next season.
Always trying to stay at least one step ahead of the competition. Though some might not take this break at all and think it’s crazy, I believe that it can be beneficial for us as humans to operate within the seasons that come in life. To avoid getting burnt out or being so completely engulfed in this thing we call fantasy sports that we neglect truly important things and responsibilities.
Then there are some who might close their eyes and put their proverbial fantasy vehicles on auto-drive for the next couple months. I don’t recommend doing that either. You’ll fall behind. I’ve simply closed mine for a brief moment. Just to reopen them with better clarity & vision, with excitement and fervour for the next season.
This is just some simple fantasy football strategy. Different people have different approaches and techniques. Possibly even different times when they close their eyes to the fantasy world for a moment. But if you are like me and feel the need to do so now as we transition from one season to the next, I recommend it. Just don’t keep them closed. Open them right back up. You won’t have to deal with the disorientaion of change. You can come into the new season fresh, with clarity, and you can stay woke.
