Make sure that you know the person you are facing in the week. There are 3 types of fantasy players. There’s the guy who forgot he even had a fantasy team, the guy who occasionally checks, and the guy who checks almost every day. If they never check, notice who is on their bench. If they have sluggers then don’t worry about hitting many home runs. Start your speedsters instead. The same goes for if speedsters are on their bench just start your sluggers. The same goes for every other type of ball player. If they check their team every day then you should stay alert for them to move around their players to help in other categories.
