Fantasy owners went into the draft looking for a quarterback who will lead their team to a championship, and the Week 1 rankings will hopefully support their decision. It's always hard to judge how a team will look before they have played a regular season game. Last year, Russell Wilson had the most fantasy points among all quarterbacks. He wasn't typically one of the top five quarterbacks off the board on draft day, but his in-season value may end up in that range again.
When it comes to NFL bye weeks, fantasy owners have a love-hate relationship. Some view them as an opportunity to apply strategy to roster construction and management, while others consider them nothing but an annoying nuisance. The fact of the matter is bye weeks aren't going away, but that doesn't mean the NFL isn't trying to appease fantasy owners either.
When looking back on a fantasy season, it’s usually amusing to look at the draft. See which players were drafted early and tanked, and see who got great value on a player in the later rounds who turned out to be a stud. It’s easy to look back and ask what were you thinking; however, that’s how the game works.
If you’re one of the fortunate fantasy football owners to have Todd Gurley or Kareem Hunt (or both – can you imagine?), you’re probably still playing and are hoping for one more week of pure domination from them.
