It's hard to part with them, your fantasy football babies, the deeper-than-deep sleepers who have carried your pitiful little squad through these first two weeks.
But like fluky Wall Street stock before it plummets to zero and leaves you broken and destitute, you must sell these overachievers before flat performances chip away at the edges of their artificially inflated fantasy value.
This is one of the most gratifying parts of make-believe football: investing in someone you believe in with a late-round draft pick—meaning the players costs close to nothing—and selling him for a stud taken eight or nine rounds higher. It's savvy ownership--the kind that wins pretend football titles.
Even if your feel some inexplicable allegiance to these sell-high candidates, you should work this week to sell. Your feelings will only inhibit your decision-making. Now go forth and rob thy neighbor.
