It just goes to show that in order to be competitive in fantasy football, you need to be diligent in your research and player tracking. That is, keep up on the latest news!
Case in point:
The team I'm playing this week has Mike McMahon as their starting QB. Now, it's been widely known since Wednesday that Joey Harrington became the starter this week and for the forseeable future. I was checking out my competition today and noticed that they still hadn't dropped McMahon for Harrington yet. The other team's backup QB is Germaine, who doesn't have a prayer of a chance to play. So, I picked up Harrington to prevent my opposition from getting him.
