Last-Minute Fantasy Football Advice for Every Position on Your Roster
Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

There is a phenomenon that exists in fantasy football that I call the "last-minute swindle."

The last-minute swindle occurs when fantasy owners swindle themselves out of rostering their best starting unit due to a last minute "feeling," or overreaction to a bit of news or intel. 

The owner then inserts a sleeper/bench player into their starting lineup in place of the player they have had locked into their roster all week. The only thing worse than having a player go off on your bench is having a player go off on your bench whom you swapped out at the last minute. 

Do not fall victim to the last-minute swindle.

Barring injuries and completely unforeseen events, "last-minute advice" is generally terrible to take in fantasy football. As of right now, you should know your starting lineup for Sunday's games. In Week 1, start your studs.

You drafted your team, now give your squad a fighting chance to show you where they stand collectively. You drafted these guys for a reason. That is your first bit of advice. 

But some fantasy owners do face decisions. Unforeseen events have occurred. This is last-minute advice for every position on your roster.
