Time to Shine or Ride the Pine: Year in review

So the 2018 fantasy football season has come to an end and what a year it was. This was the first year of my prognostication attempts and overall it went decent. I correctly predicted success or failure 99 times, made myself look like a fool 78 times, and was left wishing guys had done a little better/worse 21 times. Over the course of the season there were some great predictions for both starts and sits; I’ve combed over all the articles and selected my 3 best and worst while taking game importance and statistical accuracy into account. Some of these may have won you weeks, while a couple may leave you cursing my name in your sleep for playoff matchups lost. I’m looking forward to helping you win next season!
