When drafting a fantasy team, there is one thing that you should be your No. 1 priority—consistency. You need that factor to carry your team from Day 1.
Slumps are inevitable, but you need the players who post strong enough stretches to smooth out the rocky streaks.
Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols and Ryan Braun to name a few are prime examples of this kind of consistency.
Sometimes you have to come to the realization that your early-round pick is either falling fast and you need to salvage his value during a trade, or that the hot streak your stud is on might be the perfect time to sell high as their value will only plummet.
It is never easy to part ways with a player that you took high in the draft, but sometimes you have to know when to bite the bullet.
