One week of the season is gone, and already fantasy owners are panicking. Remember when Albert Pujols batted .217 without a home run in April 2012? Remember when Ubaldo Jimenez was 15-1 at the 2010 All-Star Break?
Of course, panicky owners present bargain opportunities. If your player is off to a hot start but you doubt his ability to keep it up, float him to other owners and see if anyone is buying the streak. On the other side, if you notice someone else's stud off to a slow start, there is no harm in inquiring as to that player's availability.
The best owners think this way from week one, through September. The players in the coming slides are just a few examples of the buy-low, sell-high chances after week one.
