Every year, without fail, there are a handful of top fantasy picks that just seem to struggle at the beginning of the season.

While some people see these under-performers as fantasy busts, often times their lackluster start is simply due to tough match-ups.

TradeOne of my favorite things to do early in the season is to circle these under-performing superstars like a shark circling his prey and then right before the prey can get away…I strike!
