0-3...Give up?

I'm also 0-3 and I can relate to your frustration, but that's part of the fun in playing fantasy football. Rebuild your team throughout the season and you might win some games; that's all there is to it.

Any idea on what I should do with my team?

Lovable Losers (0-3) 10 team league

QB P. Manning*
RB A. Green* A. Stecker* D. McAllister, K. Jones, M. Bennett, S. Jackson
WR T. Owens* R. Wayne* J. Smith* Q. Morgan, A. Bryant, E. Kennison, D. Givens,
TE L.J. Smith*
K J. Carney*
D Jaguars*


How the hell are you 0-3??? Maybe I'm not used to these ten team leagues. Anything under 12 teams is too easy for me.

Don't give up. My first year I started 0-6 and ended up 5-6-2, just barely missing the playoffs. This was 1999 and I had K. Warner and Faulk. By the end of the year, no one wanted to play me.

You're born to lose and destined to fail with that kind of attitude.

Never quit man. :-[

Couple things on this one.

1) I sure hope you don't give up. No one likes to lose, but your league members want a competitive league. It's not fair to the other people to not try.

2) I also think it's bad if you make dumb trades to give someone else a huge unfair advantage that they normally would have never had.

3) Why quit? You got in the league to have fun..See it through and try to improve your team. Maybe you will win a few in a row and get back into the thick of things.

Yeah, it's way too early to be talking about giving up. You should NEVER abandon a team, btw - I am only referring to being realistic about making the playoffs when I say "giving up". Even if you are out of the playoffs it's still fun to play spoiler and grab all the promising free agents.

I started 0-3 in my work league the year I made the championship (lost it, though). The first few weeks are dumb luck. Fantasy football is won in the mid to late weeks when research starts paying off. It's one thing when everyone has all of their draft picks healthy but once they start going down and you have pay attention to who to pick up and who to leave on the waiver wire it'll start leaning in the favor of the owners that do the work.

Heres an inspirational story for you...

I started my league last year 0-2 and was last in points, trailing the second-worst guy by about 100 points.

But through determination, study, and shrewd pickups, I guided my little team to an 11-5 record, made the playoffs, and came one win short of the Super Bowl.

Do you think Dick Vermeil should just give up? Wait... don't answer that.

My point is... you can still do this my friend

Have faith and WATCH THOSE MATCHUPS.

The key to fantasy football is the matchups!!

Check the run defense on all the teams your RBs are playing and the pass defense on all the teams your WRs are playing. Determine if there any intangibles to the matchup that the stats don't account for, e.g., Emmitt Smith playing against Dallas will be more motivated to have a big day than Emmitt Smith playing against Chicago. Some RBs and WRs should be started regardless of matchup but most depend on the matchup.

STAY FOCUSED!!

One other thing... historically, the ESPN Sunday night game will net you more points than the Sunday morning games... not sure why that is, but it seems to be the case... maybe these players just like to perform for a larger TV audience... so if you can pick up some players in the Sunday night game... GRAB EM... same goes for Monday night...
