Well, here we are. It's Week 3 and, if you're like me, you're sitting at 0-2 and disgusted with the play of the majority of your lineup so far. As you will read in pretty much every fantasy advice column on Al Gore's glorious invention (the Internet), it is still too early to do anything drastic, such as trade away your top picks or bench anyone you took early.
Like a bad tropical storm, we've got to ride this out, people. There may be light at the end of the tunnel.
So, we press on, trying to remain optimistic that our weeks of research and planning and draft day execution will eventually payoff. Something has got to give. Right?
In our Week 3 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em, we'll again stray from the obvious. There's no point in telling you to start or sit high profile guys like Ray Rice or Steven Jackson this week. You probably drafted them so high you really don't have a choice in the matter. What we'll try to help you find is those flex starts and even some guys on your waiver wire you could pick up. We hit on roughly 60 percent of our picks last week, so were shooting even higher this time around.
For many of us, Week 3 is do or die.
On a side note, week in and week out this column will NOT follow the standard, let's-compare-fantasy-football-to-some-obscure-pop-culture-reference-or-'80s-movie model, and we will strive to distance ourselves as much as possible from the cutesy Matthew Berry's of the fantasy world. Sure, it makes for a decent read, but it doesn't help you win, and that is our sole purpose.
