Last year a team in my league started 0-5, then rampaged 8-0 into the playoffs

Good point... I didn't mean leave injured players in a stuff like that. I would check the team and fix the line up, but maybe spend 15 minutes a week on that team vs my obsessive compulsive behavior over the others.

Agreed, but I don't think he meant "give up" as in stop trying.

I think anyone who posts on this forum knows better than to do that. You are honor bound to try your hardest (within reason) at all times, if you want a league that's worth playing in at all.

Sorry, I misunderstood. It is a sore subject with me because I have wasted a ton of time on those three leagues I mentioned earlier and now that is all wasted. I would agree with what you said here.

Three years ago, the guy who won the league started 0-6. He didn't have some freaky LJ situation or anything like that. His team just got hot.

I'm 0-2 in both money leagues. And still calm. ;-D

I started off 3-3, which isn't exactly a good chance of missing the playoffs, but I rattled off 8 straight wins to make the postseason. I would say 0-6 is a pretty good time to count on not making the postseason, and trying to rebuild your team if you are in a keeper/dynasty league. I'm pretty sure I didn't have an 0-4 team in any of my three leagues last season. Don't give up, especially if it's a league with veterans and attentive owners.

I call it quits at 0-6. I've seen 0-5 teams make the playoffs before.

Isn't 1-6 better than 0-7?

it depends on how big your league is and how competitive...im in 14 team leagues and last yr teams started 0-4 then won out from there, point is teams can do a flip flop, some are patient with what they have, some make huge trades to get better....


last yr i went on a 3 game losing streak mid season, right around playoff time and was almost on the outside looking in, so i proceeded to package my backups with starters to upgrade however i could(trade MBIII on my bench with Chambers for Chad Johnson type deals) and i snuck in...so if your team is strong and puts up points wait it out, if your not putting up points id make moves before its too late

Agreed. I feel bad for people who only do public leagues because some fantasy owners decide to take on 20 teams and ditch the 16-17 that start slow. It's annoying to me and it has to be extremely frustrating to those who only have that one team.
