How to Gain an Edge in Your Fantasy Football League

Have you been playing fantasy football for years now and are consistently in the middle of the pack? Are you tired of finishing eighth or ninth out of ten teams? It’s time to gain an edge on your competition and win your league this year. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we will provide you with some tips and tricks on how to give yourself an advantage over your opponents.

Draft Players With High Upside Potential

The draft is the most important part of fantasy football. While it’s hard to predict exactly how many points a player will score, you can pick players who have high upside potential. 

It is important to have a solid team foundation. This means drafting players who are consistent and have good upside potential. Don’t focus too much on drafting one or two superstar players – instead, try to draft a few players who will contribute consistently each week and give you the best chance to win.

Replace Players Who Are Not Playing Up To Their Potential

If one of your star running backs has been injured or is not playing up to their potential, consider trading that player away for someone who can provide better value in terms of fantasy points per game (FPPG). You’ll be getting rid of an underperforming player while strengthening another area on your team at the same time.

Don’t Be Afraid to Trade Away High-priced Players for a Better Value

Just because a player is expensive doesn’t mean they are worth keeping on your team. If you can trade away a high-priced player for someone who is cheaper and will score more fantasy points, then go ahead and do it! This strategy can help you free up some extra money to spend on other players who might be able to help you win your league.

Pay Attention to Injuries and Suspensions

Keep track of which players are suspended or injured and how serious their injuries are. Replace any players who are expected to miss significant time with someone on your bench who will likely get more playing time. This will help you stay ahead of the competition and give yourself a better chance of winning your league.

Do Your Research – Know the Players, Their Stats, and Their Teams

Take time to look up stats on each player and get familiar with their teams’ schedules. For example, if you have a running back who plays against the toughest rushing defense in the league this week, it might be best to bench him until he has an easier matchup.

If there are any players on your team who haven’t been performing well recently but still have good matchups coming up soon (like in two or three weeks), keep them around instead of dropping them for someone else on waivers just yet! This will give those players some extra time before making changes that could hurt your team long-term.

Predicting Breakouts Before They Happen Is Key to Success

Most fantasy football experts will tell you not to rely on players going through a breakout season. But what if there was some way to predict these breakouts before they happened? That would give you an edge over any other team in your league!

The best place for this is on the waiver wire or at least making sure that none of the big names have been taken yet by another owner when it comes time for free-agent picks up. And don’t be afraid to use one high draft pick on someone who’s had a breakout before. Just because a player has had success once doesn’t mean they won’t again, so think carefully about which positions need immediate help vs. those with potential depth issues down the line.


Having a good strategy goes a long way when trying to win at fantasy football. Make sure you have a solid plan before the draft and don’t be afraid to make some changes throughout the season if things aren’t working out for you.

The most important thing is that your team stays competitive to compete against other teams in their league or division every week.
