Doesn’t that title sound ominous? Be very afraid of Week Zero. Actually week zero is the best week. We can still look at the teams we drafted with upside and hope and furious excitement; I don’t know how many times since my drafts were completed I’ve just looked at my team and thought how awesome I did. Well, not all my teams; there are of course the ones where I felt I didn’t draft the best team I could, and those teams I look at and wonder how I screwed up the draft so bad. But even those teams may very well out perform the teams I loved post draft because, remember kids, managing your team is (more than) half the battle of a fantasy football season.

What this picture presupposes is, maybe it should be?

Welcome to what could be called the “first volley” of our 2017 Draft Strategy series, if you like catapults and sh*t. And yes, I know, I post something like this every season, but that’s only because the game of Fantasy Football is growing faster than your mom’s waist line. (Burn.) The new player influx makes this post relevant every year, and our future strategy content will benefit all and help prepare you for Draft day, and will likely also be filled with an assortment of snacks ranging from TWIX® candy bars and FUNYUNS®, basically what I like to call “breakfast”. And don’t tell me why they’re written all in caps, that’s their official “name”, so I can only assume that we are meant to shout it out every time, which, now that I think of it, seems totally natural.

Q: “What are you hungry for?”

A: “TWIX® MOTHER F*CKER!”

See what I mean? Regardless, this opening salvo of strategic knowledge (everything sounds better when it fits a catapult theme and is weaponized) found in this post is focused for those of you who have no idea what Fantasy Football is or what it does. And listen, don’t be afraid of being the “noob”, that’s not a derogatory title for me. It can be derogatory, but for those who do use it as a negative descriptor, just remember, they were noobs once too. We all have to start somewhere… Which is probably your mom’s basement. And if that’s the case, you’ve completed half the journey, some would say.

So, you want to play Fantasy Football? Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s go!
