People dont like to believe that they're players wont preform, I think Edge will have a great season but then again I might not if he wasn't on my team.
Ya know, reading this thread turned a light on in my head. Ive been playing ffootball for a while now, and I just realized I look at fantasy players in a completely different light than most people. I use a pretty fundamental approach, but, like I noted above, I target players who I want to avoid more than players I think might break out. Because of this reason I almost never will "jump" for players in drafts. I would rather sit back and take the guys who slip through because others are picking "sleepers".
I guess for me its easier to spot hype and avoid it than wade through the sleepers for the 3-4 who will break out.
Does anyone else find themselves using the pessimistic approach as well?
I guess that says it perfectly - Pessimistic drafting vs. Optimistic drafting.
