No matter how perfect your fantasy football draft is, you can’t prepare for injuries, bad coaching, and other intangibles. The beauty of fantasy football is that you aren’t stuck with who you drafted. Drafting is only one third of the equation. Trading and playing the waiver wire are just as important. Manipulating the waiver wire can turn around your season like instantly.
Fantasy Football Week 4 is absolutely critical if you have done anything but play to a perfect record. The bright side of being in last place is having the first pick on the waiver wire. This is a great week to turn around your week with the waiver wire. There are several players available at wide receiver, running back, and quarterback that could take you from the outhouse to powerhouse by next Monday.
It is also very important not to get caught up in one-week hype. Greg Lewis may have had the catch of the season, but he has no long term value. Mario Manningham was the fantasy darling last week. One week later he produced a disappointing five points. So be careful not to be blinded by a great week or a bad matchup which turned one week into fantasy gold.
