I have a serious question that doesn’t have to do with waivers, trades, or starts and sits, but I’ll try to keep it short.
I know fantasy football is all for fun, and most of it is completely out of our control. However, I find that it really affects my mood, especially when my expectations are built up, and then I lose. I’ve finished 2nd, 4th, and 2nd, again, in the past 3 years of my friend league, but I easily put the most time into doing research and making picks or trades. Now I’ve started 0-1 and am at the bottom of the standings due to lowest score.
I’ve always been incredibly competitive in almost everything I do. I’m curious if anyone else in the #FootClan has this issue ? I’d like to somehow move away from letting these losses ruin my weekend and early parts of the week, and just get back to enjoying football. I don’t think the answer is to just stop playing fantasy football.
What do you all do to help with this? How does one just take a step back and remember that it’s really just fantasy football…?
