During my many years of playing fantasy football I have come across some very useful tools that I stash in my Fantasy Tool Box. Season after season these tools have helped me build multiple championship teams.

And now, I will share some of these tools with you to help you stay on top of anything and everything regarding your fantasy players.

1. Bleacher Report App

Now that we are four weeks into the fantasy football season, you have a pretty good idea of what your team is and if you a realistic shot to make the playoffs.

To gear up for the next two-thirds of the season, you might want to pull off a trade or two to try and really strengthen your squad.

But you shouldn’t just make a trade for the sake of making a trade, right?

If you’re going to make a fantasy trade, you want it to be more beneficial to you than the person you’re trading with.

The trick is you have to make your trade partner feel just as good about the trade as you do.

To help you out, I’m going to share with you my personal system for making fantasy football trades.

And folks, I’ve never shared this with anyone before. Up until now I’ve kept this information closely guarded.

Every year in Fantasy Football there are guys that seemingly come out of nowhere to help your team dominate and then there are those other guys.

And by those other guys, I mean the guys you drafted early who were supposed to carry your team but they either got hurt or they seem to completely forget how to play football.

A prime example of this happened last year with then Cleveland Browns RB, Trent Richardson – a top 15 pick in most fantasy leagues.

After Richardson was traded to the Colts, fantasy owners got even more excited (I was one of them) because now he was the RB in a high powered offense that was primed to score a ton of points.

What happened next however was not expected. Richardson looked slow, was awful and essentially fell flat on his face dashing the championship dreams of so many fantasy owners.

This year has been no different.

The trend continues as we have some Fantasy Surprises and Letdowns that have come to light after the first 2 weeks.

Things looking bad for your fantasy football team after Week 1?

Maybe you’re in the exact same position I’m in. You lost your game, two of your running backs got hurt and your starting QB was awful (true story).

Lose-Fantasy-Football-Dont-Panic

Clearly things aren’t looking up and you’re now in a nice hole to start the season.

But if there is one thing that I have learned over the years of playing fantasy football, it’s do not over-react, do not panic and do not trade or drop any players based off week one’s results.

This is the classic reaction for a lot of Fantasy Players, they realize that the football season is short and they don’t want to fall too far behind.

I totally understand that and I would just like to remind you that all you have to do is win enough games to make the playoffs!

Let’s face it, if it were up to us guys, we’d sit in front of the TV for hours on end each weekend watching College and NFL Football while tracking our Fantasy Teams.

The problem is we have wives and kids that need our attention, so unless you’re single, it’s impossible to watch a decent amount of football on the weekend.

And if you’re sitting there reading this and saying, I get to do this all the time…what are you talking about? Congratulations, you’re about to be single.

So what’s a guy to do? You have to channel your inner Bill Belichek and come up with a game plan that relieves you of your family duties so you can watch 20+ hours of uninterrupted football.

Impossible, you say? Not so fast!

Here are a few plays that you can run straight out of my playbook that will help you achieve all of your football dreams.

I get it, I really do. We all love to be the guy that predicts something before anybody else does.

One of the great things about fantasy football is that it gives us the opportunity to step out on a limb and take a chance on a guy that nobody has heard of in hopes that they make you look like a genius by having a breakout season.

7-Deep-Sleepers-Fantasy-Football-Magazines-Are-Afraid-To-Tell-You-About

Over the years these types of players have become known as ‘Sleepers’ and without a doubt, having a sleeper or two on your fantasy football team is often the difference between winning and losing your fantasy league.

The problem is that because of the various magazines, blogs and websites dedicated to fantasy sports, it’s become more difficult to identify true sleepers.

If you look closely at these blogs and magazines (like I do) you’ll see that each publication pretty much identifies the same players as sleepers.

So the question is If everybody is tagging the same player as a ‘sleeper’, doesn’t that just make them a mainstream pick?

You bet it does!
