• Drop anyone you do not trust, so you are never tempted to start them.
• Never sit your studs … matchups be damned.
• Be wary of hurt players coming back, like T.Y. Hilton Dec. 16.
• Remember, there are three Saturday games!
• Trends are your friends!
• Block your opponent on the waiver wire! (We are here to win.)
